One of the ongoing threads of Sewerville is how certain people nowadays will smoke, inject, or inhale any chemical they can get their hands on if they think it will get them high. You know, we all have fifty different doorways to Hell sitting right under the bathroom sink; some folks just got the balls to put a hot lil’ Drano cocktail into a hypdermic and stick that where the proverbial sun don’t shine. To them, I say, good luck with that.
Of course, tripping the meth fantastic has its downside, meaning, IT WILL FUCK YOU UP. Putting massive amount of synthetic chemicals into your body is not a recipe for a long and healthy life. It is, however, a wide and clear path to black teeth, oozing skin sores, utter uselessnes and in general, Death.
I don’t pretend to understand what people find appealing about meth, but I also don’t pretend that meth and synthetics in general aren’t a prevalent part of our culture. While Sewerville may focus on some of the crime and drug problems faced by rural America in general (and Appalachia in particular),there is no doubt that the rest of the country gets its fair share, too.
Here’s an article from today about one of the stars of the TV show Sons of Anarchy, a guy named Johnny Lewis who went wacky on something called “Smiles,” beat his elderly landlady to death, and then threw himself off a building. All of what I just said is pending further investigation, toxicology, etc., but come on. The fact that this is even a theory just tells you where this guy was in his life.
meth = bathsalts = Smiles = zombie face eaters = landlady murderers = ARE YOU MOTHER EFFING KIDDING ME?
