Apparently 'lean' AKA DXM is the street term for using dextromethorphan (the active ingredient in OTC Robotussin) mixed with sweet drinks to make it more palatable:
One of the recipes for "lean" calls for using Arizona Iced Tea Co.watermelon fruit juice cocktail as the beverage of choice, and Skittles candy. the items found on Trayvon Martin's body the night he was shot by George Zimmerman.
I remember hearing about 'Robo-ing' in college but based on my experiences with DM-based cough syrups while sick I figured that it would just make you super sleepy and dopey - which didn't sound all that appealing.
But apparently at higher dosages dextromethorphan begins to act more like PCP or ketamine. And there seems to be some pretty good evidence from Facebook posts that Trayvon was a regular user of 'lean' which could explain a lot about his behavior and actions that night.
While Romney was running the Olympic games he had been investing in a company that was making performance-enhancing drugs banned by them, and he had been for almost a decade.
Except that ephedrine and DHEA are pretty weak performance-enhancers at best and are completely legal - you just aren't allowed to use them in the Olympics. In fact I'm pretty sure you can buy them at any GNC right now so this is some pretty weak attack tea.

Then this book is for you - and it's such a deal at just $6232.00! It would sure make ace's week if you bought your copy through the blog web site. And as you'd expect the reviews are pretty funny:
Slightly Disappointed November 11, 2008
Dave Lindorff writes in the LA Times that growing numbers of students are discovering their old school is actively blocking them from getting a job or going on to a higher degree by refusing to issue an official transcript. The schools won't send the transcripts to potential employers or graduate admissions office if students are in default on student loans, or in many cases, even if they just fall one or two months behind.
Given that the students have earned the degree and the school has already been paid for the classes, it's hard to see how the universities can justify refusing to send out transcripts. But when the federal government and student loans are involved, reason and logic tend to go out the window.
I guess in the 60s it sorta made sense for everyone's favorite POWs to pitch desserts.
Holy shit I can't believe the Karate Kid is 50 years old now and that Tom Skerritt is 80. Or that the Shat is the same age as Sean Connery.
