As for the original solution ... Err, problem ... I heard the kid thought it was a gas, gas, gas.

At least he didn't put it in his motorcycle, like this kid. That would have been a real shame

What a drag, I'm about to break down here. This kid was cruising through life, then one night it took a swerve and spun out of control, quickly hitting the skids. Somebody steered him wrong, I tell ya. It's the pits. Too late to get back on track now that he's crashed and burned.

I think we can wave the checkered flag now.

That's kind of sad. You'd think that someone at the party would have talked her into staying indoors.

But no sympathy for the guy who drank racing fuel. I knew by the time I was twelve years old that wood alcohol was poisonous.

UPDATE (1-26) - Vanderbilt University Medical Center has now confirmed the second teen who is believed to have ingested a mixture of racing fuel and Mountain Dew has died.

Re: Teen Dies After Drinking Racing Fuel (not Florida, but close)

I've had to post that link to my FB wall, where my kid (15 y/o) and his friends will see it.

I can't believe that kids would be stupid enough to think that gasoline or racing fuel in ANY capacity would be safe to drink, but hell, you never know.

It's possible no one actually saw her leave. Party might've been in the back of the house and maybe they thought she was going to another room or the bathroom.

Or she pissed everyone off and they didn't care.

I'd put the blame on the Saudis. Hadn't been them flooding the market with their cheap gas, these kids would have survived. You never hear this kind of story when the gas were $4+/gallon.

Re: Teen Dies After Drinking Racing Fuel (not Florida, but close)

Well I'm a west coast struttin'
One bad mother
Got a rattlesnake suitcase
Under my arm
Said I'm a mean machine
Been drinkin' gasoline
And honey you can make my motor hum

Kind of a goth-Katie Perry vibe ... I'm going with cute though. Therefore, it was tragic. The gas-guzzlers? Not so much.
