"OREO cookies are as addictive as cocaine"

Article:  For rats


My take:  Cocaine isn't very addictive.

They had chocolate covered espresso flavored ones for a while.

God those were good.

Do the meth first.

Then you won't want to eat anything.

I eat Oreos on and off...never suffered withdrawal...

FTFA Researchers at Connecticut College have found evidence that proves that Oreo cookies-at least for lab rats-are as addictive as cocaine.

Damn you Fark headlines!

You wouldn't need to if you could buy a big bag of crack for $3 at any store.

Can't buy Cheetos or Oreos.  I'll sit there and eat the whole bag.

I thought that was kinda well known. I thought it was kinda proven that it wasn't very addictive, chemically.

Please don't take that away from it. But like I said above, even though we were all taught that coke is a highly addictive "hard" drug, actual evidence says otherwise.

I don't do any kind of drug myself, but I like learning about this stuff and I would happily do something less addictive than caffeine if it was legal.

Once you start you dont want to stop.  Once you finally go to sleep you dont want to wake up the next day.  Once it is around again you want to do it again.

Sort of a viscous cycle.

GOLDEN HUMOR From TFA's comments:

#1: What in the farking fark is this cheap knock off? I'd rather shove a generic [Oreo-cookie] wannabe up my ass then put it in my mouth.

#2: How would shoving it up your ass before putting it in your mouth make it any better?

#3: "I had to read #1's comment before [#2's] made me laugh. Now I can't stop giggling!

Cagey B: Why not both?


HA! You ever tried cocaine? From what I've heard from acquaintances, it suppresses the appetite so badly that trying to eat food anyfood, even foods as delicious and satisfying as ice cream can be impossible. Gag inducing, even.

Next up, scientists will attempt to see if White Castle IS the taste some people won't live without.

(They've already determined how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop, 3)

Experiment:  Wheat Chex on one side, lint and Styrofoam balls on the other.
Result:  Rats spend more time on the Wheat Chex side.
Conclusion:  Wheat Chex are as addictive as heroin-soaked cigarettes.

Brilliant

Dear science writers, stop using the word 'addiction' so poorly. You are all failures.

The article shows rats go to a part of the maze with stuff they like. It shows they don't like rice cakes as much as oreos and don't like saline as much as cocaine.

Bfd. Nobody is losing their job and sucking cock on the streets over oreos. They are not as addictive as cocaine.

I conducted a survey of my co-workers.

I asked 1/2 of them:
Would you like me to say something positive about you or kick you in the testicles / vagina?
All of them chose to have me say something positive.

I asked the other 1/2:
Would you like a snort of cocaine  or a kick in the buttocks?
All of them chose the cocaine.

Therefore, positive feedback is as addictive as cocaine.

They compared Oreos to rice cakes not cocaine. Seriously, this study wouldn't have passed as a grade 1 science fair project.

Never did and never will like oreo cookies, that black cookie is NASTY! I realize I will be in the minority here but the cookie simply tastes horrid! Hate on me if you will, but I'd rather have a chocolate chip cookie!
