Juggling beer bottles at a bar like he's performing at the Cirque Du Soleil, the constant manic energy, Gina Gershon with a mullet, the Beach Boys' Kokomo, Kelly Lynch's string bikini and I didn't even get to when Cruise becomes a male gigolo for an older woman. But you still get a cute romance with rich wild child played by an adorable Elisabeth Shue (who is such a bitch after Cruise cheats on her with some old hag, it makes you think twice on ever cheating on the chick you've had sex with near a waterfall).
Cocktail is an absolute trainwreck, it's so hilariously campy that even when Ben Stiller made a parody of it, the movie itself was even more bizarre.
In a particular scene, I love how Tom Cruise seems so puzzled at all those job interviews when they say they want somebody with education or experience.
My recipe has evolved over the decades. When I was a teen in the 90s I had the most basic meatballs, grape jelly, and chilli sauce. Now I use unconventional flavors like red raspberry preserves, I use actual chili peppers, bell, habañero, and I've even added yellow onion, as well as spices of course. Have you any fun ideas that will elevate and jazz up this classic slow cooker dish?
Weight: 130 lbs
Dosage: 6 mg oral + 6 mg intranasal + 6 mg intranasal of 3,4-DCMP, a whole plethora of things later to mitigate the effects
(20 mg Diazepam sublingual, .5 mg Flualprazolam sublingual, 10 mg Norflurazepam sublingual, 300 mg Pregabalin oral, 80 mg 2F-DCK oral)
Setting: My house
Introduction: 3,4-DCMP also known (erroneously) as 3,4-CTMP is a methylphenidate analogue equipped with 2 chorines on the 3 and 4 positions. As it stands, it’s a fairly standard and long lasting stimulant- what makes it special is that it is extremely potent relative to other common stimulants, with a common dose purported to be in the range of 6-8 mg. While this experience overall became tainted with a battery of depressants, I tried to weather the high-dose stimulant effects as long as I could and write about them, as during my research I couldn’t find any information on the effects of a dose that high (especially for one with almost no stimulant tolerance like myself).
Why did I take such a massive dose? Am I not an experienced and responsible researcher? This is a humbling story of how no matter how experienced one considers themselves, it is still incredibly easy to make mistakes. I am lucky that this mistake only led to a great deal of discomfort and not serious physiological or psychological harm. This was simply due to insufficient research beforehand and impatience. I did not realize until it was too late that this drug has a long comeup, especially when taken orally, and that it may be more potent intranasally. Furthermore, what followed in my mitigation efforts was perhaps noble and useful in its inception, but quickly spun off the rails into the territory of compulsive dosing driven by severely impaired judgment. This should all have been common sense but it wasn’t. As an instruction- one can always take more, one can never take less- never redose when experimenting with something for the first time, one can always try again later.
T0:00- first dose taken as 6 mg orally in gel cap.
T1:00- No real effects felt, I am getting impatient. This is my first mistake.
T1:30- Still not feeling anything. I decide to snort another 6 mg. This may have been a good stopping point, this is already a fairly high dose by any standard, but I did not end up stopping here.
T2:00- Still just only barely feeling it- in retrospect what I am feeling at this point may very well have been just the first dose. Why am I so impatient? I snort another 6 mg, for a gra... keep reading on reddit ➡
I don't drink simply because I don't enjoy alcohol. However, I still enjoy going to bars to socialize with friends. If I am clearly just drinking water, I am always inundated with questions about why I'm not drinking. People get very nervous drinking around a sober person. I learned this trick from a friend who is a recovering alcoholic and it has made my social life much more enjoyable! I typically ask for a seltzer with a shot of grenadine. A lot of times the bartender won't even charge you, which is another nice benefit. But remember to tip them regardless!
Edit: but don't go to bars or social events during pandemic
Edit 2: I have gotten the comment many times that you shouldn't be friends with people who judge you for not drinking or pressure you to drink. I 100% AGREE. However, this is really a problem in large social circles with acquaintances, at family events such as weddings, and especially at work functions. This tip is just a way to avoid being harassed about why you're not drinking in those situations. It's particularly bad for women, who will get asked so many times if they're pregnant. Sometimes it's more worth it to just fake it than to be confrontational, especially if you want to just relax and enjoy yourself!
