Dexromethorphan Hydrobromide (DM) is the the cough suppressant ingredient in most over the counter ( OTC ) cough medicines. It was introduced back in the late '60s as a substitute for codiene, which was the the usual, frequently abused cough suppressant ingredient at the time (such as in Robitussin AC, which was a combination of alcohol and codiene). DM is actually an analog of an opiate ( Meaning that it was engineered from opiates), but does not register as an opiate, nor does it have any of the usual opiate characterictics, such as anesthesia, sedation or physical withdrawl. So, if you're looking for an opiate high, you are looking in the wrong place. Technically, it's molecular structure has been changed so much that its closest chemical cousin is actually Phenylcyclidine (PCP), but is little closer to Ketamine in it's effects. In the recreational sense, its an extremely powerful disassociative hallucinogen of such potency that I would easily put it in the same catagory of strength with LSD and mushrooms ( In fact , in some cases, and doses, I would consider it to be more powerful, but thats just me. Also, I had the privilege of getting most of the LSD in my life shipped from Haite Street in San Francisco, so I know good LSD...), but with noticably different effects. I really could go on for pages and pages with what I have researched, experienced and tested with this drug, but for lack of space and the fact that I don't want to have to write for ten pages or more, the...more...
Another word for a cigarette which contains marijuana instead of tobacco. Usually hand rolled, by the time one is done smoking the jibbah they are usually quite stoned aka being high. The left over part of the jibbah is known as a roach and is often saved for times when one's marijuana supplies are low. Marijuana can be enjoyed socially or by one's self. Side effects include - uncontrollable laughing, over eating especially of sweet or salty foods, cotton mouth, becoming very thirsty, sleepiness, and more often then not it makes things that are amusing become fascinating. People who part in smoking jibbahs are usually happy and they future actions are predicatable and go as follows
1. Talk and Laugh, and partake in some activity
2. Eat and drink
3. Smoke more jibbahs
4. Talk and laugh again.
5. Eat a small meal
6. Go to sleep.
It is generally agreed that marijuana is a alternitive to drinking, and people are often easier to handle when stoned as compaired to people who are drunk, because in general people who are high just laugh, and you don't have to worry about them being a drunk asshole who wants to try and kick your ass.
Towel "Wanna go get high?"
Aaron "Hey man, you wanna go light up this jibbah?"
Kyle "Hell yea man, I'm down!"
Fat Kyle "EEEEEEEEEE I've been waiting for this all day."
smoking of the jibbah takes place.
Now none of the food in any of their houses is safe!
Kyle 1 "Hey Kyle u wanna smoke this jibbah?"
Kyle 2 "Dude, when am i not down for smoking?!?! Come on light up it!"
Kyle 1 "No I think I'll wait now and smoke this later to my head."
Kyle 2 "COME ON DUDE!!!"
Portola Valley is a smelly, disgusting, dirty little suburb that wishes it was Atherton. Unlike Atherton, however, people in Portola Valley are in debt. Meaning they can't actually afford a house which was probably not even worth 2 million when they bought it (ew). To compound their financial troubles, people from Portola Valley buy their children newer cars than they themselves drive. This is because adults from Portola Valley rarely see people from outside their nasty little barrio, so they do not have to worry about the opinions of other people in Portola Valley. However, their children, who must go to private schools elsewhere because of the dirty public school system, will encounter actual rich people and need to try to show off. It is NOT a low-key Atherton, in fact if anything it is an artificially bloated attempt at a copy built with shitty materials on worthless land. In fact, many people in Atherton are content with owning a car that is up to 10 years old, until it becomes necessary to buy a new one, because everyone knows theyre bosses and therefore they don't need to trouble themselves with the opinions of plebians who live on parched, weed covered hills.
ew look @ dat fat bitch she from portola valley
poor people from portola valley call their city "PV" because their inability to afford food makes it hard to exert the energy to say the full name
A book that has garnered the affection of tweenies everywhere; it tells of the neurotic, paranoid relationship between two people. They are both jealous of their rivals and continually try to kill themselves to get out of their boring lives. Neither has much of a personality to speak of though they find one another fascinating, possibly because they have never before met anyone as boring and one dimensional as themselves.
an extract from Twilight:
"Edward, what about ROSALIE?!"
"She means nothing to me, but what about Mike?!"
"Ugh you have nothing to worry about! Please don't try to kill yourself again! I mean, I don't really like Italy, maybe if the Volturi could relocate to Paris?"
"Isabella. I feel as though you are not taking me seriously. Are you shagging Jacob on the side??"
True emos cannot accept normal problems in their life and overblow the littlest issue. They have not learned that everyone else in the world is able to suck it up and solve their problems and they find that dwelling on their misery is a way to live. They ususally want to be classified at schools as "different" or "intelligent" or "mysterious". Usually, they come off as wimps that cannot deal with life. Many true emos will "try" to make it hidden but intentionally fail to further recieve attention, while getting negative attention and teasing.more...
A poser is truly more stupid than an emo, and pretends to not be able to deal with problems to gain attention. They are a type of attention whore. To mimic their closed-minded idea of an emo, they tend to cut themselves, usually in the radial or ulnar wrist arteries. They also tend to dress (what they would call different) but like a growing trend of kids who attempt to appear slovenly (dirty hair and shirts, makeup, etc.) They call themselves "nonconformists" while not realizing that they are joining a growing number of conformists. Posers tend to try to make it well-known that they are cutte...
Zilging is when a female pees standing up, outside. For most females this is difficult, but with practise it will come. It is a very important skill to have as not only is it lovely but you no need to worry about the bathroom. No squatting as such is involved, just letting it rip, I suppose. Men CANNOT zilging, for males you would just say 'Peeing outdoors'.
Sarah: "Jess, I really need a pee, but I can't find the bathroom"
Jess: "Just try Zilging?"
Sarah: "Zilging? What's that?"
Jess: "I'll show you!" *Pulls down pants, aims to the floor and begins peeing behind a tree.*
Sarah: "Wow!" *Sarah then finds a lovely puddle and beings Zilging in it*
Jess: "Easy and fun!"
