Breaking Bad Toys

Toy'sR Us is going to carry Breaking Bad action figures and accessories which include bags of pretend crystal meth. I think the pretend crystal meth should be pop rocks!

Wrong Way

Frozen poop pills?!? Yes, that is what they are using to treat Clostridium difficile, or C diff, a bacteria that when over abundant in the bowel causes debilitating diarrhea. Samples of feces from a healthy donor with a good bacterial balance in the bowel are put in capsules that are acid resistant and frozen. The capsule is acid resistant so it will not dissolve before carrying the good bacteria to the intestines where it is needed. It is frozen to make it easier for the patient to swallow. The treatment has been very successful and that is great, but I have one word for the Doctors involved: suppositories!

Sprayable Caffeine


From the FAQ page of this new product:

Can I use Sprayable Energy on other parts of my body?
While we do recommend using Sprayable on your neck for greatest effect - many users have had success using the product on their inner wrists. As usual, start with 4 sprays (2 on each wrist) and change it up based on the level of energy you'd like (making sure not to exceed 24 sprays in 24 hours).

Yes. But what about other body parts? Because I'm sure bored/curious people will be trying it elsewhere.

Atomic Rabbit

image

Radiation makes everything better.

From this encyclopedia entry:

Atomic Rabbit was a lot like Atomic Mouse, but with a species change and a couple less supporting characters. He protected Rabbitville, rather than Mouseville, from the depredations of Sly Fox, rather than Count Gatto. Instead of an inept assistant, Sly had two kids.

He, too, got his super powers from doubly-forbidden fruit by today's standards — drugs and radiation. But while both their power-enhancers were as radioactive as can be, Mouse's was more blatantly a drug. He got his super powers from U-235 pills, whereas Rabbit's U-235 carrots could be passed off as good nutrition, like Atomictot's vitamins and Popeye's spinach. But while Popeye of the E.C. Segar comics ate lots of spinach for strength through nutrition, the animated Popeye treated it like a drug, getting a huge rush from it and sometimes, just for emphasis, sucking it in through his pipe. Good nutrition or not, Atomic Rabbit definitely fell into the category of drug-based superheroes.

Know the language of drugs

From the Huron Daily Plainsman - May 28, 1971.

The Northwestern National Bank evidently thought it was important people know the correct terminology. Click the image for a larger version.

Olfactometer

image
Now that pot is legal many places law enforcement is going a a different route against it. Denver police have acquired an olfactometer to detect the concentration of marijuana smoke in the air. They will be issuing citations for odor ordinance violations if there is too 'high' a concentration of the aroma in public areas adjacent to private homes where the drug is being used. The fine for this ordinance (money maker) is $2000.

The Cuticura System of Curing Constitutional Humors

image

image

imageimage

People today know the Cuticura brand as an elegant line of beauty products. But when they first began, they were your typical patent-medicine peddlers.

No details online of what the ingredients were for their nostrums.

I own one of those beautiful bottles, which is what got me interested in them.
