Our neighbor got a dose of acid, but I suspect it was more a mixup of nalgene bottles than an intentional dosing.

He was at a noise camp and either grabbed the wrong bottle from the pile when he left or someone confused his bottle for their own or less likely someone dosed him intentionally. Either way he was upset at taking an unexpected trip on a product from an unknown source at an unknown dosage. Thankfully everything turned out ok, but he has sworn off water bottles and plans to use camelbacks for future burns as they are difficult to tamper with in public.

Moral of the story - using a water bottle that is not easily confused with someone elses will help prevent accidental dosing, although it won't do much to prevent intentional dosing.

I think this is one of the funniest things (at least at this distance) that I've read on the board all week.

:lol: It was a large (thumbnail-sized) piece of glitter that some guy stuck on her arm and sort of . . . stroked into her skin. I don't think anything was in it; I think she just met an intoxicated dude who wanted to pet her arm, you know? And then she decided something might have been in it, and may have had a psychosomatic reaction, so she and her bf went to medical, which is where I ran into her coincidentally while escorting a friend with playa foot.

I don't think glittery stuff can hold a lot of substance, but I don't know my transdermal patches. Whatever!

Funny thing--in normal life she's very level and smart; a scientist. Girly, but not a drama queen or sparkle pony.

So, I will never know the answer . . .

I'm sure it was not a happy experience for her, and it was probably hard on you to witness and assist.
Still, Simon and I could run with that for a couple of days.

I caught the Glitter Bug! I have the strangest compulsion to . . . complain all day. And borrow all your stuff, and then forget where I put it . . .

And wear all sorts of shiny stuff. And listen to dubstep. And touch the dj...

Glitter dosing is how the sparkle ponies constantly replenish their numbers, as they are unable to reproduce sexually, only flirting with you all evening before they tell you they have a significant other back home.

Take the same precautions that you would at any bar. If you don't trust the person don't accept anything from them and watch your drink. I think most people will tell you if they added anything special to whatever they are giving you as it just is that kind of place with those kinds of people. I know I was offered a few times some magic cookies and they were up front about it.
