(The Courier UK)   If you stole a bottle of cypermethrin in Scotland, police would like you to know it doesn't contain meth, even though its name does. And oh, by the way, you really, really shouldn't ingest it   (thecourier.co.uk) divider line 59

Damn police.  Darwin had a lot riding on this one.

Can't believe this toxic substance was left in a car overnight.

Still less dangerous than sulfuric acid or gasoline and just about every car out there stores plenty of those things. Don't break into strangers' cars and drink shiat out of bottles you find inside and you won't have these problems.

I have some Cypermethrin.  I spray it around the foundation of the house to control ants and termites.

I beg to differ, Subby. The perp(s) really should ingest it, as they should truly deserve what they get. I mean, if whomever is dumb enough to steal undiluted lice remover thinking they could get meth out of it, then that's just a little more chlorine for the gene pool.

Permethrin also not suggested for ingestion, or even for contact with exposed skin.

Who puts shiat in bottles, anyway? That seems like a lot of work for little to no profit.

You should be able to leave whatever you want in your car. People ask for trouble, they'll get it.

If you drink it, don't spit it out on the plastic dashboard or the paint job.

The Fark Lottery will soon allow wagers on which state starts using bait cars with fatal poison in bottles labeled liquid meth on the front seat.

What the hell product were they using? I'm an exterminator, and use Demon WP (Cypermethrin), for exterior treatments. Never heard of a formulation of this active ingredient that would melt plastic and cause burns in it's undiluted form.

That would be intent to kill without clear and present threat, which would be some flavor of murder.  Of course that assumes you can prove intent, like having a documented policy.  A vigilante just leaving his car in position with a phony story about "oh that's just what I call it" would go to trial but get off.

Likewise, if you took that bottle of oxytocin from the farm supply shop, go ahead and take it. Its just like oxycotin. I promise.

Well I don't know, but a quick check on google shows a packet that's 2.1 ounces, 40% active ingredient, and to be diluted in at least 2 gallons of water is *does some quick, possibly wrong math* down to 0.3%.

This was probably around 90%.

What, does it cause projectile diarrhea of the uterus?  Like a Jackovasaur giving birth, but instead of shooting babies out like a repeating cannon, it's ovaries?

Short answer after searching:  Yup, more or less.  Birth inducer.  But it's also a neurochemical associated with sexual activity, and here's an interesting effect it has:

"There is some evidence that oxytocin promotes ethnocentric behavior, incorporating the trust and empathy of in-groups with their suspicion and rejection of outsiders "

So girls who bonk their brothers a lot become clannishly racist.  Makes sense, makes sense...

It also induces lactation, but there is no reason for me to have known that... Non at all..

I had some Potassium permanganate stolen a couple months ago. My journeyman was unpacking and storing a UPS delivery and didn't know what it was (used to age bone so you can match saddles, tuner buttons, nuts etc on vintage instruments) so she left it on the counter for me to take care of once I got done serving a customer. while I was busy writing up a estimate for the guys guitar a teenager that I had assumed belonged to the customer (since they had walked in nearly at the same time) grabbed the bag of KMnO4 and booked with it, the customer was as shocked as I and had no idea who the kid was. I called the cops and did a FYI report with em but have not heard anything more about it. I have no idea why he grabbed the crap as it is a bluish purple powder that looks like someone fished it out of the depths of Chernobyl I can not imagine anyone trying to snort or shoot it and if they did they will find out what a strong oxidizing agent can do to you.

If you mix it with antifreeze it starts on fire...

At work we have boxes and boxes of ping pong balls half filled with KmNO4 and a special gun that injects them with glycol and fires them out like a potato cannon. There are handheld versions and a big one that hangs underneath a helicopter. Super cool to watch in action.

Molten ping pong balls ftw. On boring days when visitors would come by i would show them how the chemical reaction works with a needle of antifreeze and a few ping pong balls of the stuff. It lights up freaking HOT.

My father (an MD) had this. Some drug stolen from the back of his car (hey - it was in the day when that was still common in the village I grew up in). It was something ending in 'ocaine', so obviously the perp thought he was going to high off of it. I forget what it was, but what it was, was one of the strongest vomiting agents known to man.

Thieves tend to be morons, but I suspect whoever took this will take anything that looks like it might have value, figuring out later whether it does or not. And I'd think even a far-gone meth head would google cypermethin before attempting to use it.
