Any truth to this urban legend?

I was in line behind a gal at the grocery store yesterday. She had 5 or 6 cans of whipped cream. She asked the cashier to be gentle when handling the cans, keeping them upright.

Didn't really look like a druggie though. Very clean cut woman.

It's laughing gas and it is some fun stuff...... Don't ask how I know. (college was fun)

Yes, they are called whipits and they work. Computer "Dust Off" works even better...if you are planning to kill as many brain cells as possible while getting a 10 -30 second high. Extended use can cause permanent brain damage. Basically the same as parking your car in the garage and leaving it running. But yes it does work.

It's true.

The propellant contains enough Nitrous Oxide to do the job. Keeping the cans upright keeps the whip cream at the bottom of the can and the propellant at the top.

yeah the propelent is nitrous oxide.
Link Posted: 8/29/2005 8:17:54 PM EDT
some whipped cream containers are compressed with nitrous oxide, breathing it causes a form of nitrogen narcosis, very simlar to being drunk. I've expirenced it while scuba diving, supposedly no side effects, i've yet to expirence any.

Nitrous oxide, done properly with oxygen, is very safe. Whipits are somewhat safe as there isn't enough volume to do any damage. But anything else is asking for trouble.

And taking hits directly from a nitrous bottle is downright lethal. Especially if you think racing nitrous works. They put sulfur dioxide in it to prevent abuse.

I knew someone who loved whip-its and decided it wasnt enough of a high and started using oven cleaner and a rag, white-out in a plastic bag and huffing gasoline and paint for fun.

Havent seen the guy in years maybe it finally killed him.

National Inhalants Prevention Coalition

The dangers of using inhalants

Although different in makeup, nearly all abused inhalants produce effects similar to anesthetics, which act to slow down the body's functions. When inhaled via the nose or mouth into the lungs in sufficient concentrations, inhalants can cause intoxicating effects.



Intoxication can last only a few minutes or several hours if inhalants are taken repeatedly. Initially, users may feel slightly stimulated. With successive inhalations, they may feel less inhibited and less in control. Finally, a user can lose consciousness.



Sniffing highly concentrated amounts of the chemicals in solvents or aerosol sprays can directly induce heart failure and death. This is especially common from the abuse of fluorocarbons and butane-type gases.



High concentrations of inhalants also cause death from suffocation by displacing oxygen in the lungs and then in the central nervous system so that breathing ceases.



Other irreversible effects caused by inhaling specific solvents

Hearing loss - toluene (paint sprays, glues, dewaxers) and trichloroethylene (cleaning fluids, correction fluids)

Peripheral neuropathies or limb spasms - hexane (glues, gasoline) and nitrous oxide (whipping cream, gas cylinders)

Central nervous system or brain damage - toluene (paint sprays, glues, dewaxers)

Bone marrow damage - benzene (gasoline).

Amyl and butyl nitrites have been associated with Kaposi's sarcoma (KS), the most common cancer reported among AIDS patients. Early studies of KS showed that many people with KS had used volatile nitrites. Researchers are continuing to explore the hypothesis of nitrites as a factor contributing to the development of KS in HIV-infected people.



Serious but potentially reversible effects

Liver and kidney damage - toluene-containing substances and chlorinated hydrocarbons (correction fluids, dry-cleaning fluids)

Blood oxygen depletion - organic nitrites (poppers, bold, and rush) and methylene chloride (varnish removers, paint thinners).

Yup, NO will do nasty things to your brain. They would fill balloons from cartidges that look like the CO2 stuff for your BB gun. Then they would suck it down.

I can neither confirm nor deny that you can evacuate a whipits can into a balloon and inhale said balloon for one hell of a buzz for about 30 seconds or so...

The brain is deprived of oxygen. NO also acts as a mediator on your blood vessels. Thats why you get high but the effect is fleeting and you need more to continue the high. But this is also the action of how viagra works. NO effects the tonicity of smooth muscles. Its also a mediator for learning in some rodents.

I respectfully disagree. one "whip it" is as effective as the next, is as effective as the next, and so on. (wouldn't the people in here agree who have tried "whip its"?)

The NO2 the dentist gives you is mixed with O2 to sustain the effects for the procedure. Also a non issue over time .

Anything in over abundance may in fact do permanant harm, but a"few" whip its over a period of time (days, weeks, years) will have minimal affect in the long run. Beer will brutalize your brain worse than NO2 .
it's not huffing freon, paint and bug spray like the droolers .

Again. Just my $.02

Link Posted: 8/29/2005 10:17:39 PM EDT
It doesn't hurt you. You can't breathe it straight, like from a SCUBA rig. That will suffocate you. But inhaling a lungful is not going to brain damage you or anything. The intoxication is pretty damn intense, lasts about 30-60 seconds.

Whipped cream goes on pie.

If you have whipped cream and pie, there's no need to get high.

If you smack the bottom of a whip cream can on a table, it will seperate the cream and the gas. Don't ask how I know.

I never got that bad but I did walk into a wrought iron fence when I got high. It left a nice mark.

I worked at a Bob's Big Boy restaurant part time in my younger years because being an EMT didn't pay too well. Seems most of the cooks and dishwashers knew about the whipped cream. The waitresses would be PISSED when they made a shake or something and sprayed a liquid mess all over the top. No NO2 means no foamy nice stuff...

My ex roommates brother had a slick racing tire filled with empty whippit thingies.

And, the chick that had the 6 cans, maybe she liked whipped cream on her pie???? Was she hot?

LOL.
I remember as a kid knocking on doors then running away.
Well in the dark I caught a guy wire from a telephone pole to the chin.
Litterally picked me up and slammed me on my back. Still got a scar from it LOL.
And to think, that was before I ever tried getting high.

ahhhh youth

I'd rate her a 6.5 or so. Nice legs & body, decent face. Spent most of her time walking around the store talking into her cell phone. Thought she was crazy before I saw the earpiece.

She did have some frozen fruit, and I wouldn't have thought anything about the whipped cream. That is if she hadn't requested that the cashier and bagger handle the cans very very carefully. That is what caught my interest. I remembered reading something somewhere about getting high from the gas in the cans.
