this is just like that speed weed thing

Ride you like my Harley (Trixya) - Chapter 5 - AnnieSantaWifey

Hi! One more question: the media has stories about soldiers coming home 'hopped up' that have always seemed like hyperbole, but I have heard that there have been many situations in war time when the choice was between stay awake and die, and soldiers looked for chemical solutions. Could you tell me a little about the history of stimulants in the armed forces? What was used when?

I can’t tell you much about historical use, at least prior to 2000. It’s common knowledge that Vietnam vets used various drugs while enlisted, but I’m by no means an expert. Though I am under the impression last I checked that the whole “smoking out of the barrel of your gun” has actually been done.

Drug use in the military was really cracked down upon after the War on Drugs. We have frequent Urine Analyses, which can span from mandatory samples from the whole company or samples from a few (supposedly randomized) individuals. The number of UAs is randomized as well; sometimes they were once a month, sometimes you had one after the other, back to back. But that was from 2011 on; dunno how things fared during the early years of the WoT.  Failing a UA is not an automatic discharge, but it can lead to a bad conduct discharge, which is only slightly better than a dishonorable one. 

That’s not to say soldiers don’t still abuse drugs. NCOs can tamper with the “random” element of the UA and samples can be “lost” or mislabeled or mishandled. Supposedly the drug tests performed on the urine are randomized as well, (like a test might be fitted to search for coke, meth, heroin, and weed, but it could completely miss ecstasy) so it’s possible a urine test might not catch a certain drug. I wouldn’t take the chance, but I have heard of soldiers getting away with drug use for several months, and in one case a little over a year. For reference, soldiers on narcotics or other drugs that might trip the UA are safe as long as their medicine is annotated in their medical files.

Caffeine pills and energy drinks might be your most common go-tos nowadays. Cigarettes too. Those three are like the holy trinity of staying awake. Sometimes when we were deployed we’d apparently get donated cases of Red Bull, and i mean by the case, and it’d just be available for consumption at liberty. Our commander limited us to one a day though, officially speaking. People had more than one tho.

If you asked an NCO, they might say there were FOUR ways of staying awake: the three aforementioned, and push ups. 

 In my personal experience the soldiers using drugs are a minority, especially because the whole army culture really likes twisting our arms about doing stuff like that and they love to threaten severe and unyielding punishment for drug use. Those I know who were caught were caught for spice, weed, (mostly weed tbh) and one for meth. If anyone was using speed I was unaware of it, but I wouldn’t put it past myself to not notice something like that. Still, I was often on 24 hour to 48 hour shifts; I feel like if speed or coke were common in my unit, I’d at least have some clue about it. 

We weren’t supposed to have caffeine pills in AIT, but I totally used them. Just put them in an ibuprofen bottle. Those things are sold at pretty much every PX.

 I hear common rumors that infantrymen are given stimulants to use in combat, but I don’t know whether or not this is factual. 

It IS myth that the army puts saltpeter in soldiers’ food to prevent them from getting erections, for reference.

Target 290mph: it’s Hennessey’s Venom F5

EXCLUSIVE: TG brings you the 1400bhp twin-turbo Texan aiming to smash the production speed record. Be afraid.

Here it is, a world-first look at Hennessey’s Venom F5, Texas’s V8 twin-turbo hyper-thing aiming not just to go quicker than the 268mph Veyron Super Sport, but blow the pesky Bugatti into the weeds, targeting a top speed of 290mph. Perhaps even more.

“I think something in the 290mph range will be possible,” boss John Hennessey tells TG in an exclusive interview. Normally a claim so big from a manufacturer so small should be taken with a pretty hefty helping of scepticism. But don’t forget Hennessey has form.

As you’ll likely be aware, earlier this year Hennessey’s first hypercar, the 1,244bhp Venom, hit 270.49mph on Nasa’s Kennedy Space Center runway: faster than the Veyron Super Sport’s 269.86mph recorded vmax (the Bugatti’s official 267.86mph figure, if you’re wondering, was the average of its upwind and downwind runs at Ehra-Lessien).

We've arteries for streets in this town. Instead of blood clotting, there are people, and I honestly don't know which one's worse.

Tall, grey buildings jut out of the concrete like weeds. I imagine one day, they’d finally touch the sky. But there are small ones too. Stunted, pitiful things. Weeds that’ve forgotten how to grow.

We’ve got the sea just an hour’s drive away. Even less if we speed up. And much less if we could fly. You’d think the wind would be merciful here. Truth is, there’s nothing but dragon’s breath expiring from manhole to manhole.

This isn’t a desert, darling. The pyramids are mountains of waste. And the tumbleweeds you see in the distance are but trash cartwheeling. So break camp and move on. I heard the diamonds are due north of here.

Some nights, we’d be lucky enough to get a glimpse of the stars. Peeking shyly in between utility poles and countless veins of electrical wires. Thousands more are snuffed out by streetlights.

Tonight, I maneuver through throngs of people, wishing more than ever for the safety of home. And amidst this chaos, the moon looks down, sitting high on her throne. Surely, she doesn’t deserve an eternity more of this.

We'll Never Be Royals (Closed for renegadeofthesands)

Tube top, skinny jeans, black mascara, locks curled; Nadia was a wild girl looking for a fun time downtown tonight. Japan wasn’t nearly as fun as New York but once she located the drug dealers things became a little more interesting. She thought she swore off drugs when she was in high school but things were different when she was making herself a fresh start in Japan. She was just too tempted to go back to her old ways. At first it was just weed, but then it escalated to speed balling cocaine and heroin just like the old days. Oh how she missed being a MoonLighter. Even though she would probably be a huge disappointment to her parents, she always brushed the thought aside with more drugs, or figured she was going to die young at this rate and they wouldn’t have to worry about her any more.

As Nadia was making her rounds through the clubs in Domino City she stopped by her favorite and decided to dance and drink a little, while secretly hoping that some unsuspecting male could entertain her for the night. Nadia let the beat of the music take her away and she allowed her body to move to the music. Her hair flowed as she danced while her hands followed the curves of her body. Nadia was so into the music that she didn’t notice a certain individual enter the club. One who would change her life once again; like he once did in the past.
