The "before" pic of the woman on the bottom, left looks a little like Samantha Brown (The Travel Channel).

LOL, this one is all "meth makes you're hair grow, but YOU WILL GET BAGS UNDER YOUR EYES!"

The after pic looks like John C. McGinley if he got beat up.

Another one, that actually makes meth look like a wonder drug for hair loss.

I remember a thread about this before

Those scabs are due to them scratching and picking at their skin - I guess you kind of become OCD when you are on the stuff so you keep picking at a scab and digging at it.

Sort of. What happens most of the time is the toxins from the drug seep out through the skin. Usually that translates into these brilliant folks scratching themselves to the point of sores.

From Frontline
Quote:
One of the most striking effects of meth is the change in the physical appearance of meth users. Because meth causes the blood vessels to constrict, it cuts off the steady flow of blood to all parts of the body. Heavy usage can weaken and destroy these vessels, causing tissues to become prone to damage and inhibiting the body's ability to repair itself. Acne appears, sores take longer to heal, and the skin loses its luster and elasticity. Some users are covered in small sores, the result of obsessive skin-picking brought on by the hallucination of having bugs crawling beneath the skin, a disorder known as formication.

I get a little more dyslexic every day. I read the title as "Feces of Math" the first time.

I think the last guy in that video is a fake. I know for a fact that George Clooney didn't turn into Mr. Bean.

Edit: Ha, I'm retarded.

I learned this a long time ago when I found out Art Alexakis was 31 eventhough he looked 40-something.

Combined with that song it's like watching people just rotting away. Freaking sad and really weird.

Especially at the very end of the video where that Clooney fellow ending up looking like that Bean dude!

Truly shocking.

Nope, those are just shots of the volunteers. They had people intentionally use meth for a period of time just to have the before and after shots.

I came to post the same thing. Even though I know what it says, it always reads as "Feces of Math" on first glance. And I do have mild dyslexia.
