Default Ever eat something potentially hazardous to your health?

A buddy just reminded me of a time when we went 'befok' (pronounced: ba-fohck') and ate half my shirt by biting off bits and rolling them into balls before swallowing them with some liquid. we also swallowed lucky beans, which we found out afterwards (the next day) that they are actually slightly toxic and have a paralyzing effect on the body.
we felt all floppy, fuzzy in the mind and generally dead the whole next day.

I'm just wondering if anyone else has eaten something that has been a really stupid thing to eat...
or am I the only plonker?

Default Re: Ever eat something potentially hazardous to your health?

In my younger and more foolish days I was known to occasionally eat at a MacDonalds or Burger King. At the urging of a friend I also ate a couple items from Dunkin Donuts one evening. Over 30 years later and I still have bad memories about it.


I was at a wedding rehearsal in southern Virginia back in the early 1980s and they had these "cookies" on little trays. They looked like little white sugar cookies but they tasted like someone combined flour and crisco and baked them. I don't know if they're hazardous to your physical health but they were certainly damn awful. Some of the locals seemed to love them though.

I swallowed a full mouthful of gasoline while siphoning as a youth. OMG I took off running. I ran for about 10 minutes, then I just stopped. I think I just ran out of gas.

But seriously I did swallow that much gas. It was disgusting and the burps for the next 12 hours were not too pleasant either. This is back when gas was leaded. So if I say anything that is way off base, it's not my fault, it's the lead in my system. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I spent a year in South Korea and tried some questionable foods that I still don't know what exactly they were.

One time I was so drunk while I was camping that I ate a piece of chicken that I dropped in the dirt. It was just extra flavoring as far as I was concerned.

i was at a party with a bunch of people on a dirt road that went nowhere, 1973> We were wasted. a friend opened his hand and he had 8 assorted pills. you want them? why not? i took all 8. he had no idea what they were.
i had a rash on my chest, not good, but i finally went to sleep. it wasn't like me to do something that stupid but yes, i did. it was a good party. someone was blaring the ohio players new 8-track.
i would have had a better time if i wasn't thinking about what i had just done.

Hey, if you wanna hang with me be prepared to walk the knife's edge.

Sometimes I'll drive by an Arby's without rolling up the window. Adrenaline is my middle name.

The Scotch ;-) invented whisky, tablet and haggis.

Two out of three are awesome, one is awful.

Another potentially hazardous foodstuff I have consumed: communion wafer.

Only if you swallowed it. I think that's required for "eat".

And if you did, you are one hardy mother.

I eat "hazardous" stuff all the time,because I like it.Hot dogs,beer(I'll never trust anyone who dosen't eat a good old American hot dog and a beer ,once in a while).,rare steak,a good burger,roast beef,prime rib,pork roast,whiskey,spare ribs,cole slaw,and a good old baked potato with butter.I also enjoy the occasional White Castle hamburger and A Big Mac ,once in a while.I even have bacon and eggs once a week,with pancakes and French toast or a Belgian Waffle.

Excedrine, Tylenol, hydrocodone, oxycontin, robitussin, I hate medicine. I always feel worse after I take it, even if it gets rid of my symptoms. I know this can't be good for me, and I have to be in dire need to take any of it.

Do bugs count? I was the "dare you to eat this" guy.

I have also eaten dog food and treats.

Kim-chi, sushi, raw mushrooms, my moms cooking, my cooking.

Which begs the question, do the French really eat French Toast and the Belgians Beligian Waffles?

I can just picture the millions of Belgian waffle makers over there.

Hydrochloric acid. Does that count? It was a very weak solution but I was at school and curious...

Larry,I'm not sure abput the French,but America was introduced to the Belgian Waffle at the 64-65 New York Worlds Fair.They were being served at the Belgian Village pavilion.You could smell them hundreds of feet away,from the village.They were served with strawberries and whipped cream.

I'm in Scotland at the moment so I had haggis for breakfast, and I naturally thought of James.

I was in a hurry frying my burger meat yesterday and when I ate it, it was still a bit cold. I think it would classify as what you would call "rare", but I was thinking the whole time, "Boy, I hope all the salmonella is dead".

There was a time when you might have been, but now your association with haggis is indissoluble, if that's the word I'm looking for. Don't be disappointed: I love haggis.

All this haggis talk is making me hungry. I come from a very Mexican family, first born in the US on my father's side, but Brother and I wanted to try a Burns supper this year. We made up a deeelish haggis, had to substitute a few pork parts for the sheep as were are a few things that couldn't be found and cooked it up ourselves. Had it with a side of neeps and taties and a liberal dose of whiskey (Scottish whiskey of course.) After the meal we all recited poetry and drank more whiskey. It was a wonderful time and I will certainly host it again at my house next year.

A word to the wise:

If it's Scotch it's whisky.

Lesser spirits get the 'e'.

Sounds like a fun night...is Robbie Burns improved with the addition of some Mexican.

Wait...WTF...you have the option of Mexican food and you ate haggis???????

One might consider changing the font colour to something invisible - I favour Lemon chiffon, meself - and typing an appropriate number of dots.
