    At least two people have become intoxicated by drinking hand-sanitizing gels, a potentially deadly habit, doctors reported on Wednesday.

    A prison inmate and a hospitalized alcoholic both were treated for poisoning from the gels, which contain alcohol -- but not the same kind as found in beverages.
    ...
    The Maryland Poison Center was called about a 49-year-old, usually calm prison inmate who was described as being 'red-eyed,' 'loony,' 'combative,' and 'intoxicated, lecturing everyone about life'," Dr. Suzanne Doyon of the Maryland Poison Center and Dr. Christopher Welsh of the University of Maryland School of Medicine wrote in one letter.

    "Other inmates and staff reported seeing this prisoner drinking from a gallon container of Purell hand sanitizer over the course of the evening. "

    When I saw this title, my first thought was, "The old way is perfect and doesn't need to be replaced." Of course, now I see that these fine gentlemen didn't have access to the old way. I hope they said a toast first.

    I drank that stuff before. It was called a Zima.


    Thank you. Thank you. Good night.

    I don't want to see a dime spent trying to restrict access to, or teaching about the dangers of drinking that stuff. Seriously, if your ass is dumb enough to swallow a greasy, oil gel, then maybe the world is better off without you.

    I accidently tasted that shit last year after I put some on and thoughtlessly bit a finger nail or something. How someone could willingly down quantities is beyond me...

    Wasn't there a wife convicted of manslaughter last year after she gave her husband a Cuervo enema and he died of alcohol poisoning or something?
     
  12. What cracks me up about this story is that, judging from the way it reads, no one bothered to take the sanitizer away from the inmate.
