The Oxymoron Chronicles said they heard people were getting high by huffing hair gel mixed with Necto. Apparently other soft drinks don’t work. Weird.
I grew up in America and kids there would do whippets – nitrous oxide. This is what you use to make whipped cream, or power drag racers I guess. It gets you really, really high quite briefly. The kids who did whippets were renowned as being quite stupid, but I’m now sure if that was causation or correlation.
Anyways, Sri Lanka is unique in that there is a huge heroin problem that people don’t talk about. There is actually a deep junkie culture we don’t discuss, and junkies do weird things.
I thought this might be a rumor, but I suppose some people could quite possibly combine hair gel and necto and inhale it. And it might give you a buzz. People do huff paint, or hairspray, which is pretty much the bottom of the barrel drug wise. I don’t think this is an epidemic, but it is a story that’s going around. Ye Gods.
Also, Oxymoron Chronicles, your automatically playing music is freaking me out and I have to close your tab.
