Obviously, science is a tool of the devil and/or liberals, and has no place in America and Freedom.

Mmmm taint juice

This article says that she was a pharmacist.

It was probably all that tricky doctor's handwriting that pushed her over the edge.

You know you've been on Fark too long when you have quite a different idea of what "tainting orange juice" is than what is typically meant.

Rubbing alcohol? Anyone would notice the taste and smell of that.
 
2013-05-01 11:10:03 AM
If the lethal dose of rubbing alcohol is 8.5 oz, and the bottles are 12 oz bottles, how on earth would you expect someone to be convinced that 3 oz of OJ diluted into 8 oz of alcohol is drinkable?  A screw driver martini is only going to have 5 or 6 oz of alcohol, and that's a much more drinkable variety than rubbing alcohol.  If it really had a lethal amount, who could possibly drink it?

When I used to go to Trader Joe, I would see basically anything on the shelves in Juice form...  I bet they would sell Taint Juice...  hippies would probably gulp it down and ask for a baby batter shake too.

A trained chemist and all she could come up with is rubbing alcohol? Wherre's the ricin, where's the lily of the valley or whatever Walter White used on that little kid, where is the americium extracted from used smoke detectors? I am truly saddened by the lack of imagination here!

/not that I have given this ANY thought.

Time to profile all the Armenians.

I guess it takes a chemist to mix rubbing and orange juice.

Could go for that.

Dude, do you want Ramineh Behbehanian on the drone list or not?  Just say it was a lethal amount and move on.

Gotta hit preview. This was supposed to be in my previous post, although it might have been funnier the way it ended up.

the_rhino: Mmmm taint juice


I struggled to work that concept into a funnier headline, but my Fark-fu was weak today and I gave up. Best I could come up with was, "Contaminants in Starbucks juice?  'Taint so!" which is pretty lame.
 
2013-05-01 11:16:33 AM
Was she setting them up to sue them later or was she just a farking terrist?
 
2013-05-01 11:16:51 AM
A chemist and the best she could come up with is putting rubbing alcohol into orange juice?
 
2013-05-01 11:16:52 AM
I wouldn't say she's a 'trained' chemist

Starbucks , a trained chemist, economy

whut?
 
2013-05-01 11:19:26 AM
I like Starbuck's PR about this:

"Our partners are always trained to monitor the store, including the cold case and lobby area, and to report any specious behavior."

Um it was a customer that noticed the cold case activity.

My next door neighbor murdered a special ed boy by pouring potassium cyanide in a coke and convincing him to drink it.  This was back in '91 - they were both in high school.

Luckily he is still in prison today.

Was wondering the same thing.   I would think a trained chemist could whip up a nice batch of iocaine or something...

I bet sometimes she feels she has to


run away.

It takes a trained chemist to mix rubbing alcohol with juice, then get caught putting it in the fridge.
 
2013-05-01 11:31:29 AM
Taint misbehavin'

What a trained german shepard puppy might look like. No picture of a trained chemist.

Did she try to run away?

Whooooaaa ohhhh tainted juice....

Because People in power are Stupid: This article says that she was a pharmacist.


In the UK, pharmacists are called a chemists.  I'll bet the author is British.
 
2013-05-01 11:37:27 AM
The article is missing some very important information. I need to know if she's Muslim so I can blame Obama for not protecting me.
 
2013-05-01 11:38:32 AM
But was it organic 2-propanol? You know: all natural and shiat.

No one said her plan was cunning...

I saw those guys at CBGBs.

I have operated a pipet.  Does that make me a trained chemist?

I guess she is more of being an annoyer than an terrorist...

This was two blocks from my home, but I seriously doubt I would stop at Starbucks for an orange juice, and certainly would not drink anything where the seal was broken.

How were the police able to determine it was rubbing alcohol and not cheap vodka?

Screwdrivers anyone?
 
2013-05-01 11:53:57 AM
The boys under the overpass call that a Hobo Screwdriver.
