America, the land of innovation, has reached deep down in its creative psyche and pulled out another great contribution to the world –of idiots.
Not only were these kids drinking hand sanitizer straight from the bottle, a few got the bright idea to distill the 67% alcohol sanitary product to make it more “pure.”
The Los Angeles Times says six teenagers have shown up in two San Fernando Valley emergency rooms with alcohol poisoning after drinking hand sanitizer.
Some of the teens used salt to separate the alcohol from the sanitizer, making a potent drink similar to a shot of hard liquor. They found distillation instructions on the Internet.
This is idiotic on so many levels, where does one begin?
First, where is the voice of reason in the community that says, “Hey, bro, just chill in front of the store and try to get someone with an ID to score for you.”
And who is this Darwin candidate that actually took the time to figure out the process of distilling it and then went the extra stupid step to post it on the internet?
