Is everything bad for you now?

Next they'll claim that smoking will kill you too!

Did they have to do a study on this? I'd hate to have been the college student who signed up for a medical research experiement, and got subjected to smoking crack laced with rat poison. That's some pretty nasty stuff to have to go through (I imagine) for a few hundered bucks.

Sounds like that old Reese's Commercial.

"Hey, you got rat poison in my crack".
"Well, you got crack in my rat poison".
"UMMMMM, Two great tastes that go great together!"
2001-08-30 01:34:34 PM

2001-08-30 01:35:12 PM

I want to know who the fark even thought about lacing their crack with rat poison anyway? Maybe next time I have a beer, I'll try adding a little drano. Or better yet, Raid.

Smoking anything kills, you damn monkeys!
2001-08-30 01:43:45 PM  
How many substances did the crack smokers try before they found that rat poison gave the crack that extra little "kick"?
2001-08-30 01:45:23 PM  
well hell my weekend is free now
2001-08-30 01:46:07 PM  
Is there ANYTHING people won't do to get messed up? Yeah, rat poison... that's goooood shiat...
2001-08-30 01:46:24 PM  
I prefer my rat poison with boobies instead of crack
2001-08-30 01:48:01 PM  
whell it nevar mest mE up.
2001-08-30 01:50:43 PM  
I bet up in Canada the government requires dealers to list it on the little baggies now,plus Im sure PETA is pleased that some of the poison is diverted away from their furry little pals.
2001-08-30 01:51:01 PM  
Oh great, NOW they tell me...
2001-08-30 01:56:08 PM  
Does this mean I have to give up smoking my crack laced rats?
2001-08-30 02:00:04 PM  
what I understand is you can smoke crack and you can smoke rat poison but for the love of God and Baby Jesus, don't do them together
2001-08-30 02:01:57 PM  
That's it, I'm going back to crystal meth and toilet duck.
2001-08-30 02:07:41 PM  
What a hilarious story. This is quite a perfect article for the tag.
2001-08-30 02:08:16 PM  
I heard somewhere that smoking embalming fluid will get you messed up.
2001-08-30 02:10:10 PM  
I think anything involving embalming fluids that doesnt involve them coursing through a dead body would mess things up
2001-08-30 02:18:27 PM  
If anyone puts rat poison in my weed they're dead.
2001-08-30 02:19:04 PM  
I say let them smoke it...
natural selection, let the STUPID die....
the world is better off.

you smoke crack you should die anyway... puffing on that glass it's a rat's glass dick
2001-08-30 02:20:07 PM  
so uh....lace is bad for smoked rats cracks?
2001-08-30 02:21:55 PM  
Hey Meta, won't the poor thing's feathers clog up the syringe?
2001-08-30 02:24:49 PM  
"Green" or "Love Boat" has embalming fluid in it yeah mary jane and embalming fluid.
2001-08-30 02:29:24 PM  
Someone should call Stac, they could market this stuff as Crack Doubler (tm)
2001-08-30 02:32:08 PM  
You can also get weed+formaldehyde as "wet..." My general rule of thumb would be "If it's designed just to kill you, you probably shouldn't mix it with drugs." But that's just me. YMMV.
2001-08-30 02:34:13 PM  
I slam the rat poison all by itself that crack is adictive. Plus I can do pest contol on the weekends by eating beans with rat poison.
2001-08-30 02:37:00 PM  
I heard that the rush come from your body naturally trying to fight the drug or poison. So death must a a real trip.
2001-08-30 02:38:11 PM  
Damn I'm going back to school with my son so I can relearn to spell.
2001-08-30 02:39:44 PM  
Ah, rat poison laced crack, the urban kind bud.
2001-08-30 02:40:21 PM  
This is your brain on Rat-Crack

Lets see...hmm, flying isn't dangerous enough so lets strap on a piece of cloth and jump out.

Diving into water isn't dangerous enough so lets strap a rope on, remove the water and jump.

Smoking crack isn't dangerous enough so lets add a little rat poison.

I've got it! Typing isn't dangerous enough so lets attach a little wire that runs from the keyboard to my nads that gives me a zap every time I hit a secret key selected at random.
2001-08-30 02:59:12 PM  
One can only assume this was prompted by some guy on the Senate floor falling over and after testing what he was smoking, they learned that it was laced with the poison. Other then that they would have said "oh well".
2001-08-30 03:06:09 PM  
NO WAY!!!!
2001-08-30 03:09:34 PM  
You don't even need to use weed with embalming fluid. Dipping a regular cigarette into formaldehyde will destroy your mind just as well as weed. The advantage I would assume is people would be less likely to question a person smoking what appears to be a regular cigarette than a joint... but when the smoker starts convulsing on the floor flopping around in his own bowel movements, I think someone will wonder what started it. *shrug*

Alligator - Good idea, but you will need to have two modifications:
1) A delay (pressing the key will zap you a few seconds or minutes later).
2) A relatively dangerous current. ... an array of car batteries would be plenty for notebook users on the road.
2001-08-30 03:15:44 PM  
Dahaka, any current zapping you in the nads is dangerous.
2001-08-30 03:16:27 PM  
Lace your crack with Tang!
Smoke what the astronauts smoke!
2001-08-30 03:26:21 PM  
Offered for the first time "Shiat" ever it's the Nad Zapper 2000 "Fark". Hook this handy-dandy "Son of a Biatch" product up from the battery to your keyboard to your "Ouch" nads, start typing and away you go. I'm "Dear God" not just the president of the company "Shiat eating dousche bag", I'm also a user.

Alligatorfred, do you have turrets syndrome?
2001-08-30 03:39:05 PM  
Inetdude, see earlier posts.
2001-08-30 03:42:02 PM  
I saw 'em.....I was just making sure. Guy that sits beside me at work has it and I hear crap like that all day. Hmmmmm.....maybe he's got his nads wired.
2001-08-30 03:44:29 PM  
Alligatorfred, that's too F'n funny.
2001-08-30 06:50:59 PM  
my ciggies pckt. carries this warning:
the smoke from each cigarette contains on average:
12 milligrams or less of tar - condensed smoke containing many chemicals including some that may cause cancer. 1.2 milligrams or less of nicotine - a poisonous and addictive drug. 10 milligrams or less of carbon monoxide - a deadly gas which reduces the ability of blood to carry oxygen
maybe the rats just couldnt read the warnings on their crack pipe?
*lights up another*
2001-08-30 07:43:34 PM  
Putting crack in your rat poison gives the rats an extra rush before they croak!
2001-08-30 07:45:13 PM  
Try this again...


What was I thinking? This doesn't even make sense! Guess I'll go take a hit from my bong filled with Clorox..
2001-08-30 11:24:33 PM  
Well, my nose began to bleed
Because I got high
My brain, it started to bleed
Because I got high
And, the doctor just came and told me
That I'm gonna die
(You know why?)
Because I got high
Because I got high
Because I got high
2001-08-30 11:30:51 PM  
Well, it's a good thing I only lace my crack with lead paint chips...
