for thoes of you who have seen Lord of War knows what I am talking about mixing cocaine and gunpowder in the movie they called it "brown brown" swim is thinking about trying it I have searched all over to try to find something on it and have found nothing any input will help thanks
Ha, i just watched this movie the other nite, admired the coke scenes . However i wouldnt recommend putting gunpowder up your nose. Think about it. It probably wouldnt do any permanent damage just to try it, but i mean whats really the purpose? other than a crazy ritual for crazy militants. Would just burn like hell.
so in the dog fighting circles gun powder is used in the dogs food the day of a fight, and right before a fight many pit-inbreds have gunpowder blown up their nose like snuff through a pipe, to cause them to be violently mean and vicious for the next/last few hours of their life. I wonder if it would have the same effect on humans?
this is a stupid thread. anybody thinking of putting gunpowder up their nose, or in their body at all, really should save the few braincells they have left.
Actually, I gave it a crack. After studying the MSDS for nitrocelullous, I thaught it was safe enough to try a small dose. It didn't do anything at all, so I can only speculate on this.
It's likely that the gunpowder in 'brown-brown' is purely a placebo effect, although I suspect that the "gunpowder" may be cut with something such as PCP. Nicolas Cage's performance in the movie Lord of War certainly indicates the use of such a drug. It's very interesting and I'd like to know more about it.
Moderator: I appreciate the warning about SWIM, although, in my country, there is now law against doing something as foolish as shoving gunpowder up one's nose. I would assume that this is the case in the UK. In any case, I respect the rules of your forum. Suffice to say, it wasn't me, it was a friend of a friend of mine. =)
The classic gunpowder mix, I think is also known as "Black Powder". It's KN03, Sulfur and Carbon, and (my friend) wishes that KNO3 was active, 'cos (my friend) can buy it from farming shops for $20 for a 50kilo bag. :P
Seriously though, I do think this is an interesting thread... Even if 'brown-brown' has no effect other than that of the cocaine in it, the cultural ramifications are still interesting.
How bout freebasing the coke/gunpowder... swim isnt up for this challange, anyone wanna give it a crack?.... plz enough common sense not too... U'll end up like a mixture of richard pryor and colombine...
do not beleive everything one sees in a movie. If it were true to get on high would one not think it would already be mixed with coke on the street. Also from swibs understanding people give pit bulls gunpowder to give them an ulcer which causes much pain for the dog, which in turns makes them mean. So unless you want an ulcer do not do it
in the movie snorting brown-brown is nothing one would do for recreational purposes.. it is said to be given to boy soldiers before battles, in order to make 'em wild and frantic.. nicolas cage originally doesn't intend to consume it, but pretty much can't say no as it is introduced to him as something someone in his business should have done once..
if SWIM got the movie right, he only saw it one time..
SWIM finds this subject interesting too, because he wonders where this practice originated..
