Was Joose the one that someone hilariously described as "the Ocarina from Zelda, but it teleports you to the hospital"

That was an erowid /blue light quote from a synthetic cannabanoid they tried three times, all three times resulting in a hospital trip. IIRC, all three were on the same day.

Yeah, but they weren’t marketing that way.

The “Joose” (phenazapam) stuff in TCC was a doozy. Someone who followed the thread better can probably sum it up more but I can definitely answer questions about why benzos are basically a pill that
turns you into a lunatic idiot. And why withdrawal can actually kill you. Yaaaay pharmacology classes.

Not enough attention is paid to the near- fatalities from phenazepam. For example, every time I remember that goons not only took it but also nicknamed it "Da Joose", i nearly die from secondhand embarrassment.

Yeah. Itís not gonna straight up kill you unless you drink with it (good olí potentiation) but it will put you in stupid positions where you are totally hosed up and out of your element, or even just passed out in a hot car.

I got hooked on the forums with the Dollfucker thread, which got gross eventually but started with someone stumbling across "Journals of Loving", a livejournal of a linux-obsessed nerd who was using his girlfriend's disability payments to keep up with three silicone fuckdolls. It was insane and awkward to read and I loved it.

There was also the guy who baked to death in his car after taking some (he had already hit a psychotic state while on it and terrified his wife enough with a gun that she had fled the home with the kids).

I remember in one of the bachelor threads (I think) someone talked about how they would run their finger over one of these to "dry it off" and then smear it on the same spot on his wall or headboard or something and he posted a pic of the smear stain it was, maybe, one of the worst/funniest/grossest things I've ever seen.

In fact the bachelor threads in general are a pretty great saga.

Yep, she logged in with his account ("thatdamnjew" e:god that felt gross to type, but kept it for archival reasons) to ask if pills in his safe were something she could safely take and describe his death. That was around when I regged, IIRC.

I doubt it too, but I can also kind of see it happening after seeing what a roomate with a tooth abscess was asking for while waiting for an emergency dentist. The forums were a lot of fun in the days of "I think you're lying.... but if you're not, I'll play along"

Thanks to the goon that posted about this somewhere else, I remembered the saga of a goon mysteriously popping up with complete copies of difficult-to-prove-existed Super Hornio Brothers https://www.somethingawful.com/horr...ornio-brothers/

quote:

In July of 2008, SA Forums user doorknobjohnny pointed out something that seemed ridiculous, but turned out to be true: it's really hard to find a copy of the porno Mario parodies Super Hornio Brother and Super Hornio Brothers 2. You would think pop culture garbage that involved pornography and the world's most famous video game would find a happy home on the Internet. Instead, it is nearly impossible to find either of the Super Hornio Brothers films.

Inspired by the mystery, I threw down the gauntlet here in my Horrors of Porn column and challenged our readers to find a copy. Many readers emailed me claiming to have a copy or know someone who did, one time, back before college, only it turns out, like, it was the wrong box. A few kind readers sent me copies of the sex-only CD-ROM version, but it didn't quite do the job. Months passed, no better leads turned up, and it appeared the search was going to fail.

Today, I am overjoyed to announce that the search has ended. A mysterious benefactor has provided doorknobjohnny and Something Awful with a full DVD copy of Super Hornio Brothers 2.

I believe this picture, or one very similar, was also used as one goon's profile pic when a bunch of us invaded a badly coded Tea Party social media site. Don't know if it reaches the level of a "saga" but that thread did have plenty of violent threats, calls to the police, old ladies yelling at bread and helicopters, etc.

The Tea Party site or the Reaganbook one was so terribly coded that the running joke was you could donate negative dollars and the site would end up posting a credit in that amount to your bank.

Yep, there was a huuuge CD thread about it, back when CD was actually readable.

E:Which reminds me of when SuperMechaGodzilla made posts people wanted to read, for interesting takes on movies, instead of "the opposite reading is true" stuff and topping ignore lists. What was his first one? Speed Racer?

One of my great regrets is that during the Trukk saga we were supposed to meet up with him while passing through Tennessee, but never did.
Apparently he had been working late the night before and slept through the time when we were passing though.

no that was hatereon, the nazi patreon rip off.

but those two other regressive facebook ripoffs were also poorly coded. Also the son from The Tea Party Community regged several accounts here to defend his dad's website/honor.
