I Almost Tried Beezin Before It Was Cool

Beezin is something that kids today are into, apparently. It involves rubbing Burt’s Bees Lip Balm on your eyes to get high. Burt’s Bees contains peppermint oil which causes inflammation and burning sensations when it comes in contact with certain parts of your body. Supposedly this reaction makes you feel drunk or high when you get it in your eyes. But that is pretty stupid because you can cause permanent damage to your eyes if you keep using it.

Honestly can never say I ever thought about rubbing this in my eyes. Which makes me wonder how this whole craze got started.

 

Anyway, here is the weird way in which I almost tried Beezin. The Mrs. has a bottle of pure peppermint oil, you can by this stuff online (for now). It is a natural headache remedy, you put a few drops on your head and the scent is supposed to relieve headaches. You can also add it to your bath water for a relaxing effect. The Mrs. is also secretly really into Beezin (just kidding). So, I was adding some of this peppermint oil to the bathtub and I accidentally spilled some on my hands. She told me you could only add about 5 drops to the tub because if you put too much in you will feel like your skin is burning off. Like an idiot I touched my mouth after I spilled some of it on me and felt like my mouth was on fire for several minutes. I immediately washed my hands after that because I was afraid of getting it in my eyes, but apparently I also prevented myself from getting high like a bunch of preteens.

They sell this at GNC, pretty soon kids will probably be pouring the whole bottle in their eyes and going completely blind. There is a pretty big disclaimer on the bottle warning about contact with eyes. The stupid things people do to get a cheap high.

College Kids Are Suicidal, Netflix Has Gone Crazy

Today I drove the Mrs. to class, I almost forgot how crazy it is driving around the campus.  People just run out into the middle of the street without even looking.  I was driving down a State Route going 35 MPH and a bunch of bros come running out in the street, I almost ran them over, it wouldn’t have been a great loss, but still! What’s wrong with these kids? It got even worse when I got into the streets on campus, they just cross dart across the road with no regard for their own safety just to get to class on time.  They don’t even use the cross walks, it’s insane, good thing I have decent brakes, I am surprised that people don’t get run over every day here out of their own stupidity.  Wow, I feel old.

I am also baffled by guys who wear skinny jeans a.k.a “hipsters”, don’t they realize they look ridiculous? Here are some pictures I found on Google Image Search, I swear I saw guys wearing these same outfits today:

What do you call camel toe on a dude?

I don’t get it. Is it considered cool to dress like a soccer mom from 1977?

Moving on…

I got an email the other day from Netflix, apparently it is splitting into two companies.  Not only did they increase their prices for no discernible reason they decided to go even further with poor business decisions. I quit getting DVDs by mail and switched to just streaming because that was all I could afford, and I am glad that I did. The new DVD portion of the company is going to be called “Qwikster” while the streaming portion is still going to be called Netflix. Really guys? Qwikster? This is what your marketing geniuses came up with? I guess that would be a decent name if this was 1988 and it’s target demographic was 12 year olds. Isn’t that also the name of the Nestle Quick Rabbit?

Hey kids, want to watch some movies? Get totally AMPED for Qwikster it’s totally RAD to the MAXXXXXX!!!!!
