    Default Four Loko

    So. Discuss. (yeah i know its a sort of taboo topic here but I think we're all mature and can handle it?)


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    As a pre-pharm student, that's both appealing and scary as fuck. They just banned that in California btw.

    Too dangerous and easy to afford.

    You combine a quick alcoholic fix (depressant) with a strong caffeine surge (stimulant), and that seriously fucks the dick out of your mindhole.

    Just imagine being drunk and confused while at the same time on speed, its like taking a sledge to the heart


    Everyone I've known who has taken that combo has just been completely fucked up (can't get laid if you're that trashed, esp. off of only 1 drink)

    I'm not saying its bad or should not be allowed, I'm just explaining the nutritional stupidity of doing it



    Kinda like taking shots, beers, bongs, and keg stands

    all at once.

    for the first time.

    when you haven't eaten carbs all day.

    ^ Ever heard of Jagerbombs?

    That combination does nothing of the sort to me or my friends, we've spent entire nights doing rounds of Jagerbombs, and it didn't do anything different other than make us more jolly and silly than we normally would have been (alcohol tends to do that normally, the addition of Red Bull just seemed to make it happen more/quicker).

    That's the one that was removed from SoCal's shelves. Hey if it works you then that's great

    It does work, its simply a cheaper and much more effective way to get smashed. Just to many who try it, it works like Long Island Ice Tea

    Take 1, seems ok but you're really already drunk. So you take 2-3 more and by the time you realize it you're completely dirt-smashed

    It'll be a waste of weed. Alcohol doesn't contain enough H20 to properly oxidize and separate the THC and its enzyme from marijuana

    they're just going to inhale a combination of uncatalyzed thc, smoke, and vodka then choke on it wondering why the hell they're not high

    War. War Never Changes.

    You guys had pre-mixed Jagerbombs over there? We just mix them ourselves.

    I'm bigger than most people so maybe I don't feel the effects as strongly, plus I think I have a tolerance to caffeine to begin with. Maybe my friends were more drunk than they were letting on, or maybe I really was smashed without realising it as you say, lol.

    In any case, I really can't see just one or two cans of it doing what you described. Drinking too much of it can be a health concern, but the same can be said about any alcoholic beverage.

    Long Island Ice Tea is a different story though. I've only ever had a bartender make me a real one (with 5 standard drinks per glass) once, and it was absolutely toxic.

    Its being banned here in NY as well, a bunch of kids went to the hospital with alcohol poisoning because they drank like three or more cans. I had two the first time I tried it and I was fucking wasted, ended up trying to kiss my gf's best friend... right in front of her... five seconds after vomiting. Wasnt pretty. I wised up and as a college student its a very economical way to get drunk without breaking the bank on a bottle of liquor. I dont like how a few irresponsible people ruined it for everyone. There are so me funny videos of NY city council members trying it to see what it does.

    As for the Jaegerbomb comment, these are infinitely stronger than a shot and a cup of redbull. One can is like six JBs.

    Ahh, that would explain. I was assuming one can was between 1 or 2 standard drinks, as cans usually are. So it's just straight malt liqueur? 0_o

    EDIT: So it's roughly a 500ml can with 12% alcohol content, yeah I'd say that's around 5 or 6 standard drinks. That puts things in perspective.

    Where can I buy one of these?
