Nangs: A guilty pleasure

Recommended Posts

 

A guilty pleasure?? How about we just call it a pleasure, yes that’s much better. It needn’t be a guilty one. Nor should it be an act shrouded in disdain.
 

Nang use goes back as far as the 1700’s where Victorian aristocrats would get together for laughing gas partys.
(That’s high society in every sense of the word.) 

 

The next time you indulge in huffing on a ballon or wrap your lips around a cream charging chalice and someone decides to cast a judgey look in your direction, worry not for they just don’t understand how cultured and sophisticated you truely are. I urge you to keep your head held high, turn your nose slightly upward and crack another coldy. Without even knowing it, you are the epitome of class.

Ok, here's my nang tales...

When I was a teenager back in the late 80s/ early 90s, we started on the bulbs. 

Then in the early 90s at uni, I graduated to the next level. My buddy and I planned our first mission like a military operation. We cut our way into the medical gas bunker and made off with the prize, an 8000 litre blue tank. We struggled to carry it, but we made it back to safe base.

Then the madness began.

We went to a rave up near peats ridge, dropped acid, and found the cops had shut it down as we arrived. Shit. Plan B. We knew we had no chance of making it back to Sydney in one piece by then, so we settled on a waterfront carpark in woy woy.

An entire night of nitrous acid fueled mayhem ensued. At one point I found myself standing waist deep in the water, just came to like that.

Anyway, this pattern continued over many months, we hit the bunker several times until they really beefed up security. So we stepped up to hospitals. Raided a few hospitals of their sweet creamy gas, and partied very very hard.

My buddy was living in a residential college, and one day had a cylinder on his bed, lying flat. He couldn't be bothered with any balloons or such and decided to suck straight from the valve. Bad idea. Basic physics really, the level of gas was high, so the liquid level was above the level of the valve. Liquid straight to gaseous phase equals extreme cold. He froze his mouth to the valve. Had to rip his lips free from the metal. Then, the pain started. He was too scared to leave his room, being lipless and all, and he needed pain relief. So he sucked about 6000 litres of nitrous down over the course of a few days. I shudder to think of his bone density now.

And I continued. I arranged a raid on a veterinary surgery, and made off with the grand prize. A 17500 litre tank.

We had a party the next night, and there was a nitrous room. At first we had a scuba regulator with 4 masks, but after a few hours, we just shut the door, turned on the tank and let the acid and nitrous really take hold.

Needless to say, this is not recommended behaviour.

By the morning, the tank was dry, and there was a mound of snow round the base that had condensed from the heat exchange. 

I think that was probably the last time I really went on a nitrous bender, I knew I had to stop by this stage or I'd end up dead.

There is nothing. And I mean nothing that compares with excellent acid and medical grade nitrous. I used to travel to past lives, future lives, other people's lives...

Ahhh, so many more tales in the vault

Nitrous does not lend itself to moderation! People will refuse to let go of the mask until they literally become unconscious. And even then I've seen someone wrap themselves around a cylinder and hug it whilst unconscious! 

Seriously though, I do worry about my bone density, there is a medical condition that used to be mostly confined to dentists, where the bones become porous and brittle, turns out too much nitrous turns them into chalky aero bars.

Yeah the airy bones sound troubling for sure. I guess with lighter bones you could move a bit quicker and thus pull off some even more daring nos bottle heists. I dunno, trying to find the positives but scrapping the barrel here. Live n learn

Lol... Have similar tales to G:wink:

My warning.

 

Had to break into a mates house and save him after he passed out strapped into the medical mask and tank and "anesthetized" himself for nearly two days....

 

Read that as near asphyxiation, and incurred a mild brain injury. 

 

Edit- yet to come across anyone unconscious or injured that Colour since

Sounds horrific @waterboy 2.0

 

i like the direction this thread is going. A few stories to remind everyone of the danger that can happen when indulging. I don’t want my lil write up to come across as a “hey everybody nangs are safe as, so fkkn cut loose on em” type thing.
Too much of a good thing can be... well, bad.
