    Ten to one you get blamed somehow for the jenkem.

    That might actually look good on a book cover: "INTERNET SHITDRUG KINGPIN WARREN ELLIS".

    if jenkem really takes off, it could judged by the unique flavor given off by the decay of flora and biomatter that grows within an individuals' intestines. we can have designer jenkem... single malt microbrews if you please.

    Smoking toad venom seems inefficient to me. Wouldn't it be better to distill it into a liquid?

    i'm mildly pleased to have won that numerical lottery.

    the idea of jenkem really cracks me up. it's really perfect for the socio-economic sets that go broke hooked on meth and such. now they can get wasted all they want for free and keep their money. Not as good for weight loss, though, since excretion is kinda dependent upon consumption. Reminds me of that drug scare argument when people were talking about what if you could smoke bananna peels and how there'd be no way of stopping people from doing whatever they wanted. Drug-fueled anarchy right from your own butt! stick it to the man by huffing your own business!

    Looks like the human race has tried virtually everything else, why not try huffing fermented shit vapors and smoking toad venom.

    Next: snorting crystalized cat piss.

    Jenkem reminds me a little of the fumes at the Oracle of Delphi. That Wiki article even had the fumes attributed to the mythical decomposing body of the serpent Python. Humans love huffing fumes.

    The hydrogen sulfide from jenkem might aid in longevity too. It's the rediscovered elixir of life! I've known many people over the years who drank their own urine. I only hope that they don't make that connection themselves.

    Bring on the eternal jenkem prophets.

    I just love the the ingenuity of the human race in it's ever- increasing desparation to get high; done crystal meth and GHB why not skin up a toad. Brilliant! I seem to remember reading about buffo toad licking in a Carl Hiaasen novel many years ago.

    What I want to know is how do you decide these things are a good idea? Huffing shit vapour, Not something I would've thought of no matter how high I was. Suggestions for what comes next?

    erg...crazy drugs...
    I had a crazy crackhead in my shop the other day...she said she couldn't work anymore because she tried to drive away from a crazier meth head who was also schizophrenic who said he wanted to kill everyone in the house. She crashed directly into a ditch. Her teeth looked like they were about to fall out from the distructive nature of the crack. She wanted star wars comics...
    and i live in a small country town...
    there are some drugs out there, that you've got to be in an agonizingly desperate spot to do...or be really really stupid.

    Here's a bit more informative article about toad-smoking. Bufotenine is present in several varieties of toad, but you (supposedly) get a much better hit from the 5MeO-DMT that is (again, supposedly) present in Bufo alvarius (shopping website that I have no association with).

    I've never tried it, myself. There are better ways to get DMT.

    Fast Times At James Woods High, a Family Guy episode, has a drug craze sweeping across the high school - licking toads. fun fun fun.

    Just when you thought fiction might be managing to stay the tiniest bit more surreal than reality, toad smoking and shit sniffing beat out kitten huffing by a fair margin.

    Banana peels, along with nutmeg remind me of the happy days of the early internet. And Erowid as an 'extreme sports' ancestor of wikipedia.

    But really, drugs are cheap, and in the UK at least it seems that with our welfare situation and minor theft (often from other junkies) 'normal' illegal drugs are the high of choice. Alcohol being number one of course.

    *shrug*

    If this is the result of desperation, expect other parts/products of the human body to turn out to have potential for intoxication in the near future. A bit sad, really - how awful does your situation have to be if you can't even get some hemp growing?
