Off Topic

I miss the days where you would line up for concert tickets overnight and the line usually turned out to be more fun than the concert.

That's never happened to me.

Did y'all hear sizzurp is being taken off the market? Street value on the cough syrup is spiking. Soulja Boy tweeted a pic of 6 bottles he has. It is like WC Fields having an attic full of gin, to try and make his way through Prohibition.

Drug companies are racist. They stop producing this stuff, but still produce Hillbilly Heroin.

WHAAAAAAAT?!?! That's the only way I survived pneumonia a few months ago!!!! WTF

sandybrook said...

Hillbilly Heroin costs more then sizzurp its all about the Benjamins.

are there any box offices that still sell tickets to shows or are they all Ticketmaster which charges you $20 more as a surcharge?

Seven of Eleven said...

Great. First the tweakers make real Sudafed a pain in the butt to get, now the good cough syrup is gone thanks the likes of Jolly Rancher morons with camera phones.

Codeine? Codeine is inferior in every way to hydrocodone/chloroeniramine antitussive/cough suppressants. The #1 best gold standard cough syrups is Tussionex Pennkinetic ER. Promethazine/codeine syrups are only good if you can't get anything else or are into sizzurp.

Cleodacat said...

It's my impression Count, that it's only one of the companies that produce it that's ceasing production and there are other codeine syrup producers.

What's hillbilly heroin?
Is that Sudafed and stuff? Don't they already monitor that?

I've never camped out for concert tickets but I have arrived hours early for games in order to enjoy tailgate parties.
Georgia Bulldogs..if they are playing a college in your town, go early. Those fans show up and are stocked with the BBQ!

Seven: the caps on cold medicines by the FDA also had no impact on meth production or use. If anything, it made shit worse. The biggest meth provider in CA and most of the US is La Familia, which actually formed largely in part to fill in that gap in the market after the FFA interventions

Lady Heisenberg said...

Derp FDA

"Hillbilly Heroin," or oxycodone, can be very pricey, depending on milligrams, area you live, and supply. BTW, those of us that are Southerners, we just looooove that term. :) Oxy 10/325mg can go from $10-20 a pop. That's why the more prevalent Hillbilly Heroin these days is well, heroin.

sandybrook said...

Oxys is Hillbilly Heroin Bacon when a User takes an oxy crushes it and sniffs it. High is similar to heroin.

Seven of Eleven said...

@LadyH, I know, right? The methods used in the "war on drugs" are so draconian, it's almost laughable.

I was reading recently about how THC has been studied and found to help with a wide variety of illnesses, including cancer and arthritis. We already know this (duh, medical marijuana) but war on drugs foundations insist on believing people just want to get high, not well.

Grateful Dead...good times!!

Bacon Ranch said...

Thanks di and sandy. Strongest thing I buy is melatonin.
They take that away and I will angrily shake my fist AT THE SKY!

When that term first got going, it was strictly for Oxycotin, which is the pure opiod, sustained release, without the added a analgesic, (Tylenol). The kiddie would get the full extended release capsules, crush and snort. Or shoot up. That led to teens dropping like flies in the early 00s. Now, the term just covers everything in the opiod family, because straight oxycotin became harder to procure.

di butler said...

Sorry for the drug lectures, y'all. Just happens to be one of areas that fall into the "shit I know," category. There's nothing inherently wrong with taking any of those meds, short term, as prescribed. It's when you don't, that you're an idiot. It is becoming more and more difficult for chronic or end stage patients to control their pain levels, because of so much abuse

Seven of Eleven said...

Word, @di.

Lady Heisenberg said...

Yup. UCSD is doing a lot of research on marijuana and are using a few different specific concentrates as well

Amy said...

I remember camping out at Turtles all night long to get tickets for all my concerts back in the 80's. So much fun! And yes it was way funner than the concert because your parents let you stay out all night to camp out for tickets. For some reason it seemed okay back then. LOL! No way would I let my 15 or 16 year old do that now. Poor kids missing out on all the fun!

Sorry, but am I the only one who doesn't miss the queuing up? I'd much rather hit the 'refresh' button on my 'puter in the comfort of my home thankyouverymuch!

I envy you guys in the US with your cheap tix....anyone decent who tours Australia is a minimum $100 per person!

The last time I was in a nighttime lineup it was to get the kids one of the Halo games.
