"Remember When... Amyl Nitrate Was Some Guy's Name?"

My friend Steve just posted this picture on "The Faceplace" with the following caption...

"Only at an airport in PTown."

...to which I replied...

"With only three ounces of lube and no poppers,
how am I supposed to enjoy
my membership in the
Mile High Club?"


Arrest? For poppers? It's not like I'm going to shove them under the pilot's nose or anything. Geez...

Just bring Wite-Out. It achieves largely the same effect...

That's interesting. I've never seen that sign in any airport.

I always check mine with the luggage. But maybe that isn't safe either. Hmmm . . . guess a person needs to buy certain things once landing. What has flying turned into?!

I never got into using poppers. The resultant headache was never worth the temporary rush.

We go to P-town each summer and the best part about that sign is that Cape Air put it up to protect their customers. Basically the CEO (who is straight) was getting upset at Mass. law officers for arresting passengers unaware that poppers are against the law in that state.

He tried to get them to lay off but they wouldn't so he had the company put up warning signs everywhere (including the restroom stalls) to help warn everyone.

Poppers just seem so 80's. Remember when they were sold as "Video Head Cleaners?" In fact, I don't think I've seen a bottle of amyl nitrate since since 1993. God, I must be getting old...

Can you have them in luggage that you check?

It's either that, or mail them ahead of time to where you'll be staying

I stopped taking poppers to PTown years ago. I kept losing them in the sand at night anyway.

RG said...

Actually, you can buy them in Ptown at the local head shop (no pun intended).

I think the law was put in place because religious extremists were using them, in conjunction with mid-70s disco music, to overpower the non-believers during the flight. I think that was what happened on Alaskair on the way to San Francisco last May. I remember someone placing a little brown bottle under my nose & then I felt all sexy & then...
