    I don't think it's our youth that is stupid, it's people that live in mobile that are stupid.

    This has been going on for years...
    The bath salts were made as close to cocaine as legally possibly for a reason.

    I know right?
    You can't tell me some the older generation isn't perpetually stupid too. I mean, they're still coping with actual gays instead of the closets they've known and it's shocking them... still.

    Kids do the dumbest shit. It just happens. Robotrips included... and that's just it, it's not ALL of them.

    It's only the substance they are using that's new. Every generation has had it's own "non-drug" to try to get high.
    Remember White-Out? How about sniffing spray paint? The latter is still somewhat popular today, though by a much lesser degree. And when sniffing White-Out became the rage, they quickly changed the formula.
    Many of you may not know, but "poppers" got their name from a glass ampule that was wrapped in gauze. It's intended use was for heart patients, but was
    available over the counter. A Scottish physician, famously pioneered the use of amyl nitrite to treat angina pectoris. To get the effects of the substance inside, you simply "popped" the glass ampule and sniffed the yellow gauze it was wrapped in.
    Today, a similar off-spring us commonly purchased in gay establishments but
    the substance has been altered to other forms such as Butyl Nitrate. The warm rush sensations and dizziness are experienced when the vapors are inhaled. Often sold as "leather cleaner" or "video head cleaner".
    I remember being able to buy the stuff at the local pharmacy to use while having sex. It was difficult to handle and the effects wore off rather quickly.
    It may not be classified in the same area...but the whole idea of using ANY drug is to cause a change to the way you feel.

    Weren't you once young and did stupid things too? I'm not trying to justify this or saying it's right but to generalize it like every single person in the younger generation is doing stupid things isn't giving us very much credit and is pretty unfair.

    Think in terms of individuals not in terms of age.

    I love how we talk about how wrong it is for kids to bully in school but it's totally okay for the men to do it here. Seriously calling all our youth stupid? That's sure great for the anti-bullying message we're trying to send out. Hell I bet most 16 year olds can do way more with technology than you can.

    substance abuse has nothing to do with lack of intelligence. if anything, i doubt you could create the elaborate scams and schemes and ways+means people come up with to get high. its sad but its most definitely not stupid.

    The intelligence of youth in the U.S. has been on a rampant decline for many years.

    This has nothing to do with sniffing bath salts. though I'm sure it's not helping. Many of us are more connected with YouTube, iPhones and MTV than we are with current affairs. I wonder how many of the guys in this thread have read a book in the past year, or even bothered to watch Obama's State of the Union speech (don't bother responding because I know many of you will lie in an attempt to prove a point).

    Yes, stupidity is king, and America sits at the throne.

    This is old news in Ireland, the methadrone and "meow meow!" and other legal high (BZP's etc) reached pandemic proportions here which eventually led to our government having to rush in emergency legislation to close down these "head shops" which had literally sprung up on every street in the City.

    This stuff is foul, I know "hardened" social drug takers who wouldn't touch the stuff and couldn't even handle it's effects, and this was being sold over the counter to 16 year old children. Psychiatric bodies were reporting a massive increase in the number of young people presenting with psychotic type episodes after taking these chemicals.

    At one stage there was a regular Q of 200 persons long outside these shops on a Saturday night.

    Luckily they seem to be all gone now, some closed down and some were burned down.....

    Oh suck it up! ;)

    Yes, every young generation (though not every individual in said generation) does something stupid...and it's the right...and privilage, of those who are older with more experience to scoff at them and call them dumb.

    When your time comes, I guarantee you that you'll do the same as well!

    Human beings do repetition so well! LOL

    Exactly! I can remember the surreal look on my Dad's face when we liked listening to Culture Club...and when we insisted that Boy George wasn't gay! LOL

    And of course, we got the "your generation" remarks as well! LOL

    Please note I didn't say 'every youth' I said "amongst our youth".

    Not every 'youth' is doing this, but it seems to be happening mostly among them.

    Yes, there was a lot of kids whiffin' glue or huffin gasoline eons ago amongst my peers. I called them stupid then, too! Anyone who would put something in their body I wouldn't put in my car gas tank is missing a few critical brain cells.icon_rolleyes.gif

    BuckYou: No. My generation wasn't perfect. But the topic is about yours.

    And if a 20 something year old was to make a generalising and defamatory statement about your generation, i'm sure that would cause an RJ e-war of epic proportions......

    This generation is so sensitive...seriously, you'd think that remarking that their generation is doing some pretty stupid things is akin to physically assaulting them.

    Get a grip young guys...this topic can be kind of fun!

    I mean, if the best comeback you have is "16 year olds can do more with technology than you can," you're gonna get eaten alive! LOL

    Even I could manage some funny comebacks when my parents would make generational remarks!

    My Mom once told me that my generation thinks money just grows on trees. So of course, I came back with "well, money is made from paper, and paper comes from trees...so..." LOL

    My Dad would harp on the generation things...and one day, I answered back, "well whose generation raised and mentored us?" LOL

    If younger guys want to answer back on this, remind your older counterparts that you were in fact raised by THEM...so if your generation isn't all we expected it to be, it's not exactly your fault...it's the way we raised you, so to speak. ;)

    Though I want to meet the people who green lit programs like "My Super Sweet 16"...I so want to junk punch them! LOL
