I just tryed to huff some extracted ether out of starting fluid. I put it on a american flag and put it up to my nose and huffed for about 3to 4 seconds. I didnt feel anything. How long are you supposed to huff it for?
Not helpful, fella, in fact downright dangerous. Not that starter fluid is by any means safe!
If your going to get your ether this way for god's sake do a search on extracting the ether from the fluid. Better still find a chemist who'll get you some proper ether. Better yet, don't bother. Ime it's fun the first time, but after that it just gives a banging headache and makes you puke. Plus it's highly flammable and makes you smell like an alcoholic for about 24 hours. Nasty stuff, as are solvents generally.
I was recently in an automotive store and I was reading labels to pass time when I came across pipe cleaner ( I think, some kinda cleaner) and after numertous flamability warnings it said "contains di-ethyl ether" but it didn't say any other contents so i went to erowid to see it said that atomotive ether is less safe than medicinal ether, I was wondering is there anyone who has tried auto ether or has any info about it?
Ether was alot more popular when carboraters were around, see ether used to be used in older cars and tractors and things alot more than they are now, mostly ether was sprayed directly into the carb to help it crank because sometimes a car wouldnt get enough gas and ether is HIGHLY FLAMABLE so be carefull if you do anything with it. Ether is still available somewhere because go karts and fourwheelers and smaller engines still have carbs but the art of perfection is coming up and some four wheelers even have fuel injection systems already.
Well a reply didn't come fast enough so i tried it.. it was good i dint have much by any meens like in comparison to feer and loathing it was nothing but i still felt ot a bit, so im sure ill do more, but thank you all for your input
Ok so im not sure it goes here so if you move this thats fine but i have a can of pyroil starting fluid and have been wanting to try ether so could anybody just share all the knowledge they have ive heard dont worry about the extraction just use it straight from the can but your guys input would be appreciated.
ok so i got some starting fluid it contains
heptane(142-82-5) diethyl Ether(60-29-7)
Toss it. Don't inhale starting fluid. The heptane will block oxygen from getting to your brain. You;ll get high - but it's the same high one gets from drowning. Got it? Trash can went that a way! ----->
Ya, if you really really wanna try ether, get your hands on some lab grade stuff. Which for some could prove to be a problem. If your one that has a problem obtaining it, then move your intrests elsewhere.
The only con that I can think of is the chance the DEA gets involved. Other than that, it's till ether, which isn't exactly a great thing to be doing and can cause nerve damage, or you can die instantly from lack of oxygen (sudden inhalation something or other, can't think of the term right now sorry) this can happen with any and all inhalants. As for the pros, well it's pretty obvious but that way your not inhaling extra additives, carcinogens, and lubricants.
Alfa-If there was something you had in mind that I missed, please let us know, because other than that I'm stumped.
A mixture of heptane and diethyl ether would require fractional distallation to separate effectively. And this is not something you can do in your kitchen sink. Pure diethyl ether is a very dangerous substance to work with in a laboratory setting - let alone huffing it from a can of starting fluid. Pure ether can explode if allowed to evaporate unless you have added a suitable reducing agent to prevent formation of peroxides. It can be ignited from a spark from your alarm clock or fridge going on. It requires very much special care to handle. Please take this into consideration before you decide to let your lab rat near this substance.
in swims honest opinion ether really isnt all that. swim has had a large lab grade bottle that was appropriated from the university lab bench some time ago, and has had a fair huff or 2.
Since it used to be used as a general anesthetic i guess u could knock yourself out if u tried really hard but if you just huff a bit it really doesn't do much, especially if u are stone cold sober as it is. The only time swims ever really noticed any effect was when quite pissed and once or twice on pills.
It was a very subtle new layer of fuckedness to add to the weed, alcohol and pills, but all in all really not worth it if you have to go to trouble obtaining it. some of my other labrats reported feeling quite consiberably more fucked after huffing in thoes circumstances, one even resulted in falling on its arse...
Why there are so many stupid idiots on SWIMs internet? Ether is not dangerous, its less harmless than alcohol. If SWIY have to choose , alcohol or ether, than ether is much better and not that dangerous.
