what happens, is the overall message of these forums, such as condoms do protect you from HIV infection, become diluted and people become confused.

Please don't confuse members bristling at the mis-statement of facts, with an attack by any group of members. We insist that, when you state something as fact, you have the resources to support your position.  Also, a little advice, don't plant passive-aggressive comments in your posts, it only makes you look small and mean spirited.

I wasn't trying to spread a "message", I was simply saying in my experience.

And I wasn't being passive-aggressive. Excuse my personality.
It's all a sham. Politics is a big game, same as the media - and same as religion. The point is to distract & control. If we're looking at what they tell us is the "big issue", we're not looking at what they are doing. In time, there will be different causes and different minorities to pick-on. All in the name of keeping the system going, and the people distracted.

I'm sorry if I was unclear, but I was not attacking the expression of your own experiences, rather the statements, by some posters, that state things, not supported by scientific evidence. Everyone is welcome to state their opinions, but when they cross the line into stating scientific fact, then they need to provide the source.  As to the passive-aggressive, it just seems that when you comment about ducking down to avoid slings and arrows, it comes across as that, but that is only my opinion.

OK, this shit has turned into a HOT mess.

I imagine this will be locked soon.  This is happening A LOT on here lately, but seems to be centered around the same group of people.  I got caught up in some of this crap and was asked to stop by the Mods.  I can't believe the rest of you haven't so maybe we should try to get back to being supportive of each other and not bother with the newest "annoying" member on the forum.  They tend not to last anyway.

OK, off my soapbox.  I must be in a really good mood tonight...hmmmm full moon perhaps?

Maybe the good mood is thanks to some poppers?

There seems to be something about this topic... It's a subject and a question which has come up many times in the past. And everytime it seems to end up with nasty exchanges happening. The minute I saw this as a new topic I thought, "uh-oh, here we go again." 

I'm going to leave the topic open for the timebeing. But let's have no more sniping or bickering. If you have something you want to say, make sure it sticks to the subject without snarking at someone else or their comment.

Thanks for your cooperation.

Nah, the strongest we have is morphine sulfate and that won't touch fentanyl.

My mother had a Fentanyl patch during Hospice care.  It's a small piece of tape about 1 inch square and it lasts 3 days, but she still had some pain and was on liquid Morphine too.

In the US they only sell Butyl Nitrates and I don't know if they are illegal to posses.   I know that some companies sell then online and ship with USPS.

Hmmpf.  Dude, no.

The $10.65 that you would spend on a cheap brand such as Jungle Juice or Rush would be well worth it.

If you can shake that off then poppers probably won't affect you much.  Might as well stick with sniffing glue.

If you attach the bottle to your nostril with a rubber band and sniff it for five hours I'm sure it's not good for anyone HIV- or +, but if you use it infrequently it's dispersed easily in the body and is of no concern.  Tell your friend he doesn't know what he's talking about.

Thanks.  I just shot coffee through my nose and onto my computer screen.  This isn't so much the problem -that would be the other ten people around me on this train wondering what the hell I'm up to making such a mess and giggling.

Do you know where you find such a large rubber band?

Ultimate Poppers Rebreathing Combo




Set consists of:
 
1 x Goldman Halothane vaporiser
1 x Magill anaesthetic breathing circuit in rubber and chromed brass
1 x 12 inch corrugated breathing hose
1 x one way breathing circuit connector
1 x black rubber anaesthetic mask harness four tail (not shown)
 
Fresh air enters the left hand side of the vaporiser via the one way valve and 12 inch hose.The wearer inhales; drawing air through the vaporiser and the circuit to the mask. As the wearer exhales, the one way valve at the left hand side of the vaporiser closes ensuring no air escapes back through the circuit, the 2 litre rebreathing bag fills with air and any excess air exits the circuit via the expiratory valve by the mask.
The vaporiser has a lever to graduate the amount of aroma being vaporised though the circuit. The rebreathing bag mount has a graduated on/off lever so the wearer can rebreathe or not as required.
 
Due to the vaporiser being sourced from different manufacturers, the actual vaporiser supplied may differ in design to that shown above.
 
Ultimate poppers rebreathing combo: £250 + P&P
 
 
Extras available to use with this combo:
 
Gas mask conversion kit: £52+ P&P

I always think of a drag queen named Sunny Holiday when I see or hear poppers .
Mrs Holiday who's disposition was anything other than sunny never once was onstage without a popper bottle in hand . She had a prominent nose and if needed she would screw the bottle into a nostril so she could grab more tips . She had a scabby nose .

I didn't KNOW the thread was from 2010 - I have a lot of reading to catch up on! I have to say, though, I am learning a LOT........and if this contraption listed above isn't considered 'out of a normal days work' in a bathhouse then I have been living a sheltered life.....or our baths up in this neck of the woods are way too vanilla!

Hey Dan,

You really need to get out more.  One of our bathhouses would be perfect for that gear and they have enough slings and cages to make any dungeon master proud.  Montreal also has a few fetish weekends and that popper gear would be considered "minor league" to what parades around our streets.
