      Starving your brain of oxygen

      There is a thing you can do to make yourself pass out by starving your brain of oxygen, is this dangerous or does it have any negative side affects? (except from drowning, hitting your head on something etc)

      1. sit in squatting position
      2. breathe in breathe out heavily for 20 secs
      3. stand up 4. blow on thumb as hard as you can
      5. Pass out

      Seriously, think about what you're saying there. It's pretty unlikely to be a good thing to do.

      Well, obviously it burns brain cells but I thought we had loads extra that we never use in our life so it wouldn't really affect anything. I really don't have a clue about this kind of stuff.

      In short. Yes it's dangerous.

      That includes fatality.

      It wasn't actually for that, just because I had never passed out in my life and wanted to see what it was like, lol.

      Yep, it's dangerous/bad for you.

      Passing out is not as fun as you might think. Trust me.

      ...Considering that you can actually die from it...I'd say yes - it falls under the 'dangerous' category.

      I've tried this but you have to have a friend around to slap you up back to conscience otherwise you may not wake up. My best description of the experience is like life's flashing before your eyes. You get like 100000 images a second. It's weird.

      Lets just say.... it MAY harm you but its only a 100% chance.

      Dear God, I am much too curious now! I will very likely try this very soon.

      When I was about 7 years old, someone told me if you tied a rubberband VERY tightly around your finger and then went to sleep you would wake up to find your finger fell off.
      That night, I tightly wrapped a rubberband around my finger and went to bed.
      My finger didn't fall off but I vaguely recall that I was in agony for some time afterwards.


      People also told me that if I hung upside down from the monkeybars for too long my head would explode. I started hanging upside down every moment I had and even slept for years with my head and most of my body upsidedown off the side of my bed. I would even sleep on a top bunk like that. The adults were always terrified I would fall off and break my neck. I never fell off and my head never exploded (interestingly, whenever I get a certain type of super horrible headache, the only way I can get rid of it is by hanging upside down from the furniture. But it only stays away for as long as I'm upside down.).

      I know THIS topic isn't quite the same as the stories children tell... but my brain is perverted that way. I need personal proof. For some really odd reason, I don't really care if I have to die to obtain that proof. :hmm:

      It's really not that big of a deal neither it should be considered as a "cheap drug". For me it's just a thing you do once or twice just to see and that's it. It should be like that for everyone who wants to TRY.

      I can also see the mature, moderator view though. People get addicted to the stupidest stuff and freak accidents CAN and DO happen, so it's not really something that should be taken lightly.

      I was once into "whippets"- just to "try" and see what they were like. One balloon wore off much too quickly, so I filled 2 or 3 in advance and hit them one after the other.
      I researched the dangers and found I had been walking a very thin rope across a slippery slope of death (my experiences while high were different from my friends so I looked it up and it terrified me how close to death I had come).

      So, even though my brain is perverted and I always want to push the line to see how far I can go... and all of my earlier silliness aside... the mom in me has at last come to her senses.
      If someone actually feels completely compelled to try this, RESEARCH it first and don't do it alone.
      And yes, I'll be taking my own advice as well

      What I want to know is why it does anything. It sounds like what catchers do in baseball games. What's the deal with it?

      If you're talking about experiencing that moment when you've been sitting down too long, suddenly stand up, and feel all discombobulated, that's one thing. Starving your brain of oxygen on purpose is something else all together. I'm not going to get into a discussion about drugs, but some people get addicted to the feeling of being high through whatever means they're using, including starving the brain of oxygen.

      I know someone who died because of this. His name was Ben. It wasn't the first time he'd done this, only this time he went too far. His little brother found him in the bathroom a short time later.

      Actually, it's not dangerous at all. You should do it.

      It's good to see that Darwinism is still alive and well in the human population.

      When I was a small kid, I took a large cloth and wrapped it around my neck REALLY tightly. I wanted to see how red I could make my face.

      It got red. Really red. The pressure was nearly unbarable, but I wanted to see how long I could go on with it. I woke up on the floor with blood gushing from a wound on my head.

      I still have stained bedsheets, and a scar that will forever remind me that deliberately passing out is not a wise thing to do.

      That explains a lot.
