hehe, it was amusing a few days after reading about several people being hospitalized for ingesting gasoline.
Whaaaaat? Why did they do this?
I know it's not exactly related to the topic, but it is about news censorship (sort of). I recall one very late night in the early days of CNN...when
still the only 24 hour NN, where this strange unedited video popped up on headline news. It was Mexican-Americans drinking and huffing and pouring
gasoline on themselves...laughing, flipping off the camera, saying..we want to die, we want to die...
Again, no edits. Lots of FU's. Then they went to commercial, never explained it, and never showed it again in the half hour loop. Whoops!
But still, why did people drink gas in the black out?
