    Default Dementrivia I (Round 4)(Drugs and the 80's)

    Welcome to the Dementrivia, the Jelly Beans of quiz shows

    What is this about? You can read the long description or accept the short explanation:
    Each round, I give you one question. You send me an answer that is wrong, but as funny and entertaining as possible. After some time, I will gather your entries and reveal them. Then, you may vote for your favorite answer, thus awarding it points.

    After three rounds, the leaders have closed up on each other but there is still enough time to catch them.


    Question 4: In the late 80's a new drug hit the streets in Europe and the USA and was quickly adopted by more than one subculture as their icon drug. Due to the hazards in its use, it became soon prohibited, but the great variety of substrates in which it is distributed makes it nearly impossible to completely abolish. What is the name of this drug?

    Please send your answers as a message until Monday, 5 PM Eastern


    Note that this is a game without signups. You can send answers/vote anytime.

    Reverse psychology doesn't work that way. At least not if the others don't know which one yours is.

    They probably are not going to heed your call.

    Round 4 is done. 13 players tried to find a cool answer for this one:

    Question 4: In the late 80's a new drug hit the streets in Europe and the USA and was quickly adopted by more than one subculture as their icon drug. Due to the hazards in its use, it became soon prohibited, but the great variety of substrates in which it is distributed makes it nearly impossible to completely abolish. What is the name of this drug?

    True Answer: The drug in question is 3,4-methylenedioxy-N-methylamphetamine, better known as MDMA and even better known with its street name Ecstacy (or XTC). The amphetamine was mainly used during raves but could also be found in other subcultures. The hazards in its use are injury or death from dehydration.

    The Giant in the Playground Forums. They're certainly addictive enough. (It's all a conspiracy! They didn't come out in 2003, it was 1988!)

    The drug in question is Advil. It was developed at the same time that the Great Migraine Epidemic of 1983 was gripping the nation, and the black market trade soon surpassed the legitimate business prospects. Shortly thereafter, the migraine epidemic died down, and the legitimate businesses gained control of the Advil market once again. (Note: it is a little-known fact that Advil itself was never illegal. Rather, the feds outlawed the preferred method of taking black-market Advil, which involved the use of heavy industrial pliars and was administered as a suppository.)

    The drug was known as AD&D. Finally, nerds who weren't "cool" enough to get mainstream drugs could get their own special brand of high. They'd sit in dark basements for hours, getting high off pictures of orc barbarians, their 300 page long PHB, and that cute Half-elven sorceress with 18 CHA

    D&D. In fact, it was so addictive, that many poor fools have still urges to fulfil their appetite for this terrible drug today, even going to the extent of meeting up in small, secretive groups, isolated from society, to partake of it. Although, nowadays, the drug has become more popular, and entered more of the mainstream culture, it is still frowned upon by some sections of society

    Question: We have the D&D option twice, and the Giant in the playground option twice. What will happen if one gets loads of votes while the other gets only a few? Otherwise it's a guess on which to take, and just luck.

    If the answers would be exactly identical, I will post it only once and spread the points evenly between all of them. However, the answers are formulated differently and you can still choose who executed the idea better. Personally, I am a great fan of the swift one-liners but maybe someone likes the long exclamations better.

    Just to fight the establishment *Foiled by Silkenfist*

    I'll just post my pun fulled reasoning now, since I am not actually playing.

    [hr]

    Little did people know it was actually ice. You could buy the components in the supermarket after all, and this added to it's popularity.

    If anyone approaches you in a dark ally and demands that you "let-tuce have some ice *They pause for a while and then add* tea"
    (^This is to fool the police who have been frozen in their attempts to tract this drug since all the time those they suspect are actually out buying beverages)

    You can just go to your cabbage farm and find an iceburg. Instant buzz (specially if those bees are still pollinating)

    Just don't let your mother find out, she will give you the cold shoulder otherwise

    [hr]



    Take that establishment! I laugh in mods faces

    Sorry Death, but there is a significant bit of a psychological advantage for someone who posts his answer apart from the answers. If more than one player sends their stuff later, I will ignore it but just for one the effect is too great, though.
