Kids Are Mixing Mountain Dew With Fucking RACING FUEL And Guess What? It’s Killing People

Health experts have today warned teenagers of the dangers of drinking a cocktail of racing fuel and Mountain Dew, known as 'DewShine'. It comes six months after two teen boys died in rural Tennessee, having drunk the concoction - which includes methanol.   Logan Stephenson, a 16-year-old student at Greenbriar High School, was found dead in his bed the morning of January 21.  Just minutes later, paramedics were called to Stephenson's best friend J.D. Byram's house, when the boy started having seizures.  Five days later, J.D died in hospital from the effects of the drink. In a report released today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention documents investigations into the two deaths. Experts urge parents, teachers, community leaders and healthcare professionals do warn young people of the dangers of drinking 'DewShine'.

Health experts have today warned teenagers of the dangers of drinking a cocktail of racing fuel and Mountain Dew, known as ‘DewShine’.
It comes six months after two teen boys died in rural Tennessee, having drunk the concoction – which includes methanol.
Logan Stephenson, a 16-year-old student at Greenbriar High School, was found dead in his bed the morning of January 21.
Just minutes later, paramedics were called to Stephenson’s best friend J.D. Byram’s house, when the boy started having seizures.
Five days later, J.D died in hospital from the effects of the drink.
In a report released today, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention documents investigations into the two deaths.
Experts urge parents, teachers, community leaders and healthcare professionals do warn young people of the dangers of drinking ‘DewShine’.
Racing fuel is typically 100 per cent methanol – an organic solvent commonly found in the laboratory, industrial and automotive industries and residential products.
The CDC report notes just one tablespoon, or 15ml of methanol can prove fatal.
Police investigating the deaths reported that the boys obtained half a gallon (1.9 liters) of an unknown brand of racing fuel.

Well I’ll be a monkey’s uncle. Drinking racing fuel is bad for your health?? Get outta town! I would never have guessed that drinking nearly 100% Methanol fuel that is combustible and used for racing cars at a very high speed, is bad for your health. Stunned.

Now obviously it sucks people died but also, I’m not gonna feel too bad because who the fuck would think drinking race fuel is a great idea? When you’re pumping gas and the smell starts to hit your brain and you get a little light headed you shouldn’t be wondering what this 87 octane gasoline taste like. Something like this could fly if it were still 2000 but c’mon. It’s 2016. We know that colliding our brains together will give people concussions and that inhaling smoke at 2 packs a day will probably lead to lung cancer. One can pretty safely guess that drinking high octane racing fuel probably isn’t the best for ya.

Now when it comes to any medical related issues I put on my doctor hat and remember everything I saw from the Tv show House. Remember when LL cool J drank toner fluid that was also pure methanol? I do, and knowing that I woulda told these kids the cure to keep the methanol from ravaging their livers is to drink like pure vodka because Gregory House did it for some reason I can’t remember but it fixed LL Cool J if it wasn’t for another lingering medical condition that the show solved later on, so its right. That’s what you call irony. Kids drinking Mountain Dew and Racing fuel to get fucked up and the only cure to saving their lives would’ve been more alcohol.

P.s- Should out to early 2000 rap music for making drinking out of a gas can look cool. Still don’t know if they were drinking gasoline out of those things or just pouring beer in there. Or henny? i dont know all i know is that in the Dirty they them boys that drank you under the table.

Also shout out to me for thinking it would be fun to try fire spitting with no practice what so ever so I pour my self a cup of gasoline and nearly choked and lit my insides on fire.

As An AHS Alum I Gotta Give A Shout Out To Adam Reed.

Adam Reed just wants to be one of the guys on Plantation American Heritage’s nationally ranked football team. If you watched what happened after last Saturday’s 36-8 romp over Stephenson (Ga.) at the Battle of the Borders Classic in Atlanta, the Patriots’ 4-5, 95-pound, fifth-string running back seems to be fitting in just fine. He had about as many fans wanting to snap pictures with him as his highly recruited teammates. “I'm a little undersized,” the 17-year-old senior said Tuesday after practice. “But it’s, whatever. I don’t let my size stop me from doing anything.” It’s one thing to be undersized and playing in a local recreational league or on the junior varsity squad. It’s an entirely different thing to run with the varsity team of the school’s back-to-back Class 5A state championship squad and earn the respect of teammates and coaches. Reed has. After playing on the middle school and junior varsity teams at Heritage since the sixth grade, Reed began his senior year last month ineligible for the JV squad because of his age and year in school. If he was going to play football, he had to make the varsity team. And he did, impressing coach Mike Rumph by attending every offseason meeting, workout and practice alongside the biggest player on the team (6-6, 338-pound junior All-American offensive lineman Tedarrell Slaton) and the second-smallest (5-8, 146-pound junior receiver Jason Heinstkill). “It’s special to see somebody that diminutive, being dealt a tough hand, coming out here and working just like any other person,” said Patrick Surtain, Heritage’s defensive coordinator and a former Dolphins Pro Bowl cornerback. “We don’t even look at Adam like that because he’s Adam to us, because he puts in the work like everybody else. He doesn’t want anything handed to him. He wants to earn it. And so far he has. It’s good to have somebody like that on your team.” Reed, who played on the junior varsity at Heritage alongside Surtain’s son Patrick Jr., a 6-1, 175-pound sophomore, occasionally got into games on the JV and even scored “a handful of touchdowns.” But he has yet to get in to either of the varsity games this season (Heritage opened with a 19-7 win over USA Today preseason No. 2 Bradenton IMG Academy on Aug. 22) and probably won’t get into Saturday night’s showdown with DeMatha Catholic (Maryland). But Rumph said he’s planning to get Reed into a game as soon as he can, either on kickoff returns or when the schedule gets a little less daunting later in the season. “Whether or not he gets playing time as a senior, it remains a mystery,” Rumph said. “But I have some plans and ideas to get him involved because he sacrificed the way everybody else sacrificed.” Said Reed’s mother, Lisa: “Coach Rumph told me they were not going to put Adam in a situation they didn’t think he could handle, and as a mother I said that’s all I can ever ask.” Still, his teammates and coaches are looking forward to seeing him get on the field in a game. Although there is no official record as to who the shortest player is to get into a game, two years ago, Rice’s Jayson Carter, a 4-9, 135-pound, walk-on running back, entered late in the fourth quarter of a 45-7 blowout win over UTEP. Locally, Reed could become the shortest high school player to ever get into a varsity football game. “I’m not going to lie; when I first saw him it was kind of shocking,” said junior tailback Kyshaun Bryan, the Patriots’ leading rusher last season. “Now that I got to know him, he’s pretty cool. He does everything we do and has an even bigger heart. His size doesn’t matter. He’s like one of us.” Reed, adopted two days after he was born, has been to many endocrinologists and other doctors in South Florida, but hasn’t found an explanation for his diminutive stature. “Unofficially, the best answer we’ve gotten is his body doesn’t know what to do with growth hormone,” said Reed’s mother, a kindergarten teacher at Manatee Bay Elementary in Weston. “We honestly know nothing about Adam’s parents or medical history. But I’m a firm believer that I was meant to be his mom. As soon as I had him in my arms I fell in love with him. “It hasn’t been all peachy keen. He’s cried, been upset about his height. But I said to him, ‘This is just the way you are, and this is just part of life.’ Thank God you can walk, run and scream and play. When life gives you lemons, you make lemonade out of it.” Reed hopes to make much more of his life and opportunity this season. “I want to win a championship ring,” he said, “and just play my role. Whatever it is.”

Miami Herald/ Manny Navarro– Adam Reed just wants to be one of the guys on Plantation American Heritage’s nationally ranked football team.
If you watched what happened after last Saturday’s 36-8 romp over Stephenson (Ga.) at the Battle of the Borders Classic in Atlanta, the Patriots’ 4-5, 95-pound, fifth-string running back seems to be fitting in just fine. He had about as many fans wanting to snap pictures with him as his highly recruited teammates.
“I’m a little undersized,” the 17-year-old senior said Tuesday after practice. “But it’s, whatever. I don’t let my size stop me from doing anything.”
It’s one thing to be undersized and playing in a local recreational league or on the junior varsity squad. It’s an entirely different thing to run with the varsity team of the school’s back-to-back Class 5A state championship squad and earn the respect of teammates and coaches.
Reed has. After playing on the middle school and junior varsity teams at Heritage since the sixth grade, Reed began his senior year last month ineligible for the JV squad because of his age and year in school. If he was going to play football, he had to make the varsity team.
And he did, impressing coach Mike Rumph by attending every offseason meeting, workout and practice alongside the biggest player on the team (6-6, 338-pound junior All-American offensive lineman Tedarrell Slaton) and the second-smallest (5-8, 146-pound junior receiver Jason Heinstkill).
“It’s special to see somebody that diminutive, being dealt a tough hand, coming out here and working just like any other person,” said Patrick Surtain, Heritage’s defensive coordinator and a former Dolphins Pro Bowl cornerback. “We don’t even look at Adam like that because he’s Adam to us, because he puts in the work like everybody else.

Wooohoo! AHS baby! Gotta love the heart on this kid. At like 5’8 200+lbs a senior in high school I didnt have the skill or balls to play and here Adam Reed is 4’5 95 lbs ready to take the bench or the field whenever he’s needed too. Just doing his part for 6 years now waiting for his shot on the varsity roster and I damn do hope he gets his moment. Kid doesn’t get worked up if he has to take the bench. He knows he’s 5th string but he knows when its time for him to take the field he’s gonna do his god damn best and play for the win. Never let his size stop him any step of the way. Seriously if the patriots make it to state champs i might have to break out the old heritage jersey and rally the troops and if i do you can damn well bet im gonna be rooting for Reed.

Sidenote- back then a lot of people joined the Heritage Soccer team their senior year because they forced you on the varsity team and even if you dont play because you probably stink, you get a varsity ring. Cheap move. Gotta earn those rings.
