Well, I think I just had my first effective 'not even once' moment. Although, if the world dealt with recreational drug use better, this shiat wouldn't exist.

Honest Bender: Ok, wow. That was a bit more graphic than I expected...

Kittypie070: Ready-set: Kittypie070: Yo, Brainsick, that's the best Welcome to Fark EVAR.

Yo, fatty, it represents a different fark than years ago. My name is new but I've been around for many years. It'll be too bad if a funny site goes to a rubber-neck style format. First, lame and comment-prohibited ads. Now this.

Pardon ME?? Did I ask to be f*cking insulted? Go to Hell.


WELCOME TO FARK!

fusillade762: In before the "Druggies deserve to have their flesh fall off" comments


I'll not be shedding any tears over their lack of flesh.  Although, I have been looking for ways to make my Fallout Ghoul costume look more authentic...

The vice network have a great documentary about this drug. Google it

The article (and wikipedia page on desomorphine) show thionyl chloride in the synthesis. Do they really use that on the street?

IIRC, that was one of the worst smelling reagents I've ever used in a lab. Someone left the top off for a few mins and cleared everyone out of the lab. It was the only substance I had used that actually made me leave a lab feeling somewhat sick.

/Decided theory/computation was more my style

The graphic warning isn't warningish enough!

What the HELL!? This needs a far larger "graphic warning" than what's provided!

Harry_Seldon: This is why you manage drug abuse as a social health issue, and not a crime. Sunshine is the great disinfectant.


The problem is that this requires the possibility of a "sick society". The sorts of people who look to drug legalization as an answer are usually not very keen on admitting that possibility.

Sergeant Grumbles: How is the person with exposed bone not bleeding everywhere?


Clotting and vasospasm. The vessel either spasms shut or clots off, which kills the tissue it supplies.

I've seen worse in the hospital, mostly decubitus ulcers in diabetics and the extremely infirm. One that sticks out had the tibia and fibula completely exposed just below the knee. The nurse puked, and I just barely held on.

I once saw someone's butt fall of in his wheelchair. Person was lifted to the gurney, butt remained in the chair.

complaining about FARK 'not being funny' and then proceeding with a mean-spirited, unfunny post because I hurt your feelings is the sort of thing we should really avoid...

If you have a krokodil addict take bath salts, what you have is a partially rotting, walking corpse that wants to eat your face.

I've heard of this phenomenon before, but just can't place it OH FOR shiat'S SAKE IT'S THE ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE AND IT IS HAPPENING >NOW< PEOPLE

Do you understand quotes? I didn't write about it 'not being funny'. Your pic seemed to endorse the graphic material. She liked it. If the word 'fatty' is more shocking than a photo of the inside of an addict's arm, you both have priority issues. And my post was pretty funny.

How about we all just lighten up? I'll have to hope Fark doesn't trend towards the gore.

The guy rolled himself into the emergency room with a shirt and lap blanket on. There's no telling how long he'd been in that chair, but he stank up the whole wing of the hospital. He didn't survive.

Okay,  now I'm wondering the mechanics of what happened, mainly what the definition of "butt" is.  Gluteal muscle/fat only, or legs too, or ???

I can understand if you really don't want to get into it.

You could see his bones from tail bones to his upper femur. also part of his rectum fell out. It made a ripping/ sloshing sound, but that might have been the cushion velcro on the wheelchair. I don't exactly know the mechanics of it as I'm not a MD and it's not my expertise. I can only report what I saw. He had a colostomy and catheter, and so I imagine he didn't have to get up to use the bathroom, and didn't feel the need to take care of himself.

If you ever find yourself paralyzed, it's important to move around periodically to restore circulation to your butt, legs, and feet. :-/

I was responding to Ready Set's 'fatty' comment, not your response, Kitty

I agree, I was just surprised by the pearl-clutching...

Oh dear gods. This sounds like something I don't want to look forward to when I go on placement.

It's weird - every single time I click on the comments for this thread, I'm eating something. It doesn't bother me either.
