Crystal meth

Crystal methamphetamine!

Naturally, this is a veritas post.

Just look at those nice shards of methamphetamine! I aquired
some of this quality meth today, er…I mean last year. ;) It has all
been consumed so it doesn’t matter when I got it, because it’s not in
my possession now. Now that the disclaimer is done with, let me proceed
with the test results. I haven’t seen nice shards of crystal meth in a
long time, so this is a real treat indeed. =D

Marquis:

A single shard *pounds heart with fist* was placed on a surface and
a drop of Marquis reagent was added. The reaction was a fast one,
bubbling and fizzing to an orange color. Orange indicates an
amphetamine type substance.

Simons:

Another shard *more pounding* was tested with two drops of Simons
reagent and two drops of buffer solution. The color change was very
fast to dark blue, it saturated the solution. Blue indicates a
secondary amine, so together with the Marquis result, it is safe to
assume that the shards of clear crystal is not sugar (or another inert
substance) but methamphetamine. :)

If you didn’t get the heart pounding reference, it’s a feature of
slapstick comedies when something shocking (usually financially related
i.e. a wasteful act) is done at the disapproval of the person involved.
This is presumably an attempt to get the heart beating again after the
shocking deed resulted in a cardiac arrest. I have taken the shards to
the “taste test” (or rather insufflating test) and the conclusion is
that this is Damn Good Methamphetamine or D.G.M. for short.

I am prepared for the final exams…are you? ;)

Ethical question:

Do you think it is “unfair” (cheating) to have a line of meth (or
another stimulant) before taking an exam? Please comment. Your input is
appreciated.

Personally, I don’t think so, because even though it affords extra
concentration, increased memory retrieval and (qualitatively) improves
thought processes, it’s no different from caffeine – which a lot of
people take before exams. What makes caffeine acceptable, but not
methamphetamine? The legal status? The availability? Different people
have different mental abilities too…are the smarter ones “cheating”?
Are exams really a fair and equal environment to evaluate understanding
of course material? Does being born with a gift (above average
intellectual ability) make things “okay” but not taking something to
increase performance? Is the perceived advantage given by certain
substances (in a non-competitive sporting event) wrong? How does this
fit in with drinking coffee, eating a meal and the other things people
do to improve performance in exams?

  1. How is it that just anybody can write a website and get as popular as this? Its not like youve said anything incredibly impressive –more like youve painted a pretty picture over an issue that you know nothing about! I dont want to sound mean, here. But do you really think that you can get away with adding some pretty pictures and not really say anything?

  2. Hello. I just wanted to pop in and comment on the design of your blog. Don’t take this the wrong way, but it’s too loud. It’s doing way too much and it takes away from what youve got to say – which I think is really important.

  3. Thanks a whole lot for the downright post.this can be the words that sustains me on the right track straight during my day. I have already been searching around because of this site after being known them at a colleague and was thrilled while i was able to locate it after looking for while. Like a demanding blogger, i’m hopeful to remarked further ones taking initivative and leading to town. True desired to comment showing my appreciation to your website as it’s very intelligent to do, and several writers tend not to accumulate acknowledgment they deserve. I’m definite i’ll come back all of which will send a few of my buddies.

  4. Thank you for making the effort to go over this, I find myself strongly over it and love learning read more about this topic. If at all, since you gain expertise, could you mind updating your site with extra information? It’s very a good choice for me.

  5. I’d been just browsing in some places but got you just read this post. I have to admit that i’m within the hand of luck today otherwise getting this excellent post to see wouldn’t happen to be achievable personally, at the very least. Really appreciate your content.

  6. Hi I ran across this great site by mistake when i was searching yahoo because of this issue, I must say your websites are really helpful I also love the theme, its amazing!. I dont have much time and energy to read all of your post at this time but I have bookmarked it and in addition opted in for your RSS feeds. We are last a short time. many thanks for an excellent site.

  7. You won’t believe this but recently I was sorely tempted to set your site as my homepage. I assumed that way I would have the ease of assessing the goodness of your web site whenever I started my chrome. Yet, I had to satisfy my temptation with merely bookmarking your web site since I couldn’t get rid of my own website from the default homepage option (even though I wanted to). Anyway, do keep your posts updated.
