OT: Bar-Hoppers Can Inhale Liquor Instead Of Drinking It!


Recommended Posts

Do you have an occasional beer/wine/mixed drink after work or on the weekends to loosen up?

 

If so, you may want to read about the next big thing ...it is set to make its debut in New York City Friday night.

 

Alcohol+Oxygen inhalers being installed in bars. :eek:

I read that, Phil. We must hurry and try it out before it's too late! :P

I'll bet you could get the same effect by putting alcohol into a nebulizer , and for about $2900.00 less. You wouldn't have the oxygen added but that's probably a neglible part of what that device does, which is vaporize a liquid, the same as a nebulizer. Hmmmm, I just happen to have a nebulizer around here somewhere.

I just received this email from a friend who lives in NYC:

 

Well, apparently it's going to be at the Trust Lounge tomorrow night (never heard of it, but there's only 10,000 bars in the city).

 

This thing is apparently causing a huge uproar! Since you dont have alcohol on your breath, you can pass a breathalyzer with no problem, and doctors are saying that inhaling alcoholic vapors could possibly cause brain damage (well, what doesn't?).

 

Definitely sounds interesting...

I don't see how it would allow you to pass a breathalizer test... alcohol is still in your system, and part of the metabolic process is the elimination of it via respiration - if it is in your bloodstream it WILL be detectable in your breath.

 

As far as brain damage, it's the same thing - it's in your system, just like drinking it. The only difference is that it hits the bloodstream faster via this method of administration than it would if you drink it. Drinking can and does cause brain damage... IOW, kills brain cells. I don't see how this would change anything in that regard.

From what I've read, casual drinking does NOT kill brain cells. Long term alcohol abuse can cause a shrinking of the cerebral cortex, which is probably where the idea that every drink kills brain cells comes from.

 

I could make that 3 grand AWOL device for about two hundred bucks. It's just a nebulizer with an oxygen tank attached to the intake, very easy to accomplish, in fact somebody probably already makes one.

 

I think the thing that is going to kill this industry is...... smoking. Some dumb ass will, despite all the warnings, try to light up a cigarette while using the device, and KABOOM...... Oxygen is highly flammable.

I see one potential danger: if you are not using pure alcohol.

 

Gin for example contains a lot of water and small amounts of other substances that you definitely don't want to enter your lungs.

 

Don't mess with that stuff on your own.

True Dat. Back when I worked construction our welder would always show up for work and snort pure oxygen out of the welder before he started work; that cleared his head apparently. I'm not really sure if it killed any brains cells, he didn't start with too many... :freak:

According to the news report,Austrailia has already banned it because of non-detection in breathalizer tests.Anyway,I'll try anything once :Dhttp://www.awolmachine.com/awolflorida-307.jpg

Looks either like a convention of asthmatics, or a parody of a bunch of middle eastern folks smoking a hookah.

 

I'm sorry, I like to sip a Captain Morgan and Coke, or a beer. My lungs have taken enough abuse.

 

However...something does arouse my curiosity. Could something similar be used for treatment of lung ailments, like infectious pneumonia? Alcohol kills bacteria.

Now that I'm looking at it,I wonder if each new customer get's his own mouthpeice for the obvious reasons.

Primatene Mist and other Asthma inhalers contain alchohol,but I'm not sure of the effect on bacteria in the lungs.Interesting point.
