      smoking cigarretts and bashing capt. kangaroo     

i recenrtly became curious about the nicotine content of tobacco.
what i found shocked me, only ~1% of tobacco is nicotine, which leads me to the question why do we smoke this crude natural product, of which ~99% consists of meaningless carcinogens to block O2 absorbtion into your lungs?

some "free base" cigarretts and nictoine inhalers are sold as aids to stop smoking but are never marketed as an "energized breath spray" to bring to the bar and help pick up women etc.

so why is this mild stimulant which if taken in a different form would be roughly as harmeful as caffiene still only popularly consumed in its most harmfull form?

plus why are tobacco companies chastized for trying to devolope higher nicotine content to tabaccos, isn't this really just a form of harm reduction.

      good questions     

there's alot of money to bee made dealing nicotine to non-smokers.
i'm surprised that there isn't some sort of white powder (legal) to snort at work that has some nicotine and caffine and maybee some vitamins.

      Nicotine = Extremely poisonous

Well, not necessarily if you consider the fact that nicotine is an extremely potent neurotoxin and is fully capable of killing you in surprisingly small doses. It's fast acting too.

I seem to recall reading once that every year a few people die here and there from smoking cigarettes which for whatever reason have an abnormally high amount of nicotine in them.. Can't remember where though.

But anyway, yeah, nicotine sucks anyway. Gotta be the shittiest drug there is.

Nicotine is used as a very effective insecticide. Not at all harmless.

      Nicotine Dosage: extract from 100g tabacco?     

Nicotine
 
Dosage:  extract from 100g tabacco? 40-60 mg pure.

Time:    Several hours, coma may set in much earlier. Much quicker if taken in large doses.

Available: Easily available

Certainty: Fairly certain, given a large enough dose.

Notes:    

"Soak 100 grammes of tabacco for a few days. You get a brown mess. Strain off the tabacco, then simmer slowly until most of the liquid has gone, leaving about 2 teaspoons of brown treacle-like stuff. Add it to your night-time drink, and never wake up. Someone said the other day that 150mg of pure nicotine would be fatal in seconds.

The effects include violent convulsions and that direct cause of death is respiratory failure. Smokers should use larger doses than non-smokers.

      sounds familar...     

i think i have that recipe in an improvised munitions and guerila warfare tactics handbook somewhere. its used as a poision; contact w/skin is fatal in concentrations like the above fore-said recipe would bee. notice that the dosage on a camel:turkish gold is 0.8mgs of nicotine per smoke. dosages as low as 40mgs are deadly, muchless 150mgs... according to the merck index in rats:
.3 mg/kg i.m. (intramuscularly- injected into a muscle like a typical vaccination)
9.5 mg/kg i.p. (intraperitoneal- injected into the abdomenal cavity)
230 mg/kg orally

notice the difference between oral ingestion and IM.

Don't you think if I had something intelligent to say, it would bee in my post?

      death is a dying fad     

Once you are born you are set upon a journey that ultimately kills you. The ways of dying are by no means finite, however you only die once. Once is enough because death is a real complete process that never fails anyone or anything. If you are alive, I hate to say it but it's going to kill you. With or without cigarettes, you are not immortal. You spend all your time being healthy, eating right, low cholestrol etc. and get sucked into a tornado ya couldn't outrun...
Just be sure to say your prayers and wear clean undershorts. The rest will take care of itself. Betcha it KILLS you too!tongue

It doesn't matter. I'll probably get run over anyway...

If you're going to kill yourself, do it in a room filled with porno magazines and bunnies so they can at least print an interesting story about you in the paper.

the merck puts ld 50 at between 40-60 mgs for a fatal dose... so yeah, 149mgs would waste your ass.smile

Here's a clipping from a suicide done proper from Post 526282 (ChemoSabe: "Gallant Found Dead", The Couch)

While in the bathroom, Gallant, surrounded by filth,  a rolled-up bloody five dollar bill in his nose and a shattered mirror on his lap, propped up by his erect penis.

“There were porno mags everywhere,” said a teary-eyed Goofus.  “He was such a model citizen.  I don't know what went wrong.”

im just saying id rather get my little nicotine bump in a neat office/airplane etc friendly breath spray then a stincky socially frowned upon cancer ridden cigarret or even worse "chewin tabaci".
although there does exist the posibilty that if i were to slip up and take approximatley 100 srays in rapid succsesion and not go into convulsions before i finished this i would wind up dead with bunny porn.
