What really impressed this man Raphael Quintero was that when this man hit the floor, I bent down and started drinking his blood. Because let me tell you my friend, there is no drug strong enough; not coc aine, not heroin that can get you so high compared to drinking a cup of human blood

Wouldn't the wealthy elite put some cash into synthesizing the hormone, instead of killing for it? Or even extraction. It'd be cheaper, safer, and more convenient than killing people and covering it up.
This really doesn't smell right.

WIth all the diseases that can be passed through contact with blood you would think these people would cease and desist with these activities!
Some time in those fierce and frightening prehistoric years when every day was a struggle for survival for the primitive hunter-gatherers there came the realization that the flowing of a victim’s vital fluid after a fatal attack from a cave bear’s claws and jaws was connected with the release of the life force itself. Blood became sacred. Once the association was made between blood and the life force, a large num- ber of magical and religious rituals became centered around the shedding of blood, and thousands of members of ancient priesthoods have raised chalices filled with the dark, holy elixir of life over thousands of altars stained with both animal and human blood.
As respect for the spiritual quality of human life evolved, the sacrifice of men, women, and children was considered forbid- den. And while in less civilized times the drinking of an animal’s vital fluid had been deemed an appropriate way in which to absorb the strength or virility of the lion, the bear, or the boar, religious law now admonished against both the drinking of animal blood and the eating of meat from which the blood had not been thoroughly drained.
The Old Testament book of Leviticus (17:14) acknowledges that blood is “the life of all flesh, the blood of it is the life thereof,” but the children of Israel are instructed that they “shall not eat of the blood of no manner of flesh; for the life of all flesh is the blood there- of: whosoever eateth it shall be cut off.” Again, in Deuteronomy 12:20–24, the Lord warns, “...thou mayest eat flesh, whatsoever thy soul lusteth after...Only be sure that thou eat not the blood: for the blood is the life; and thou mayest not eat the life with the flesh. Thou shalt not eat [blood]; thou shalt pourest it upon the earth as water.”
Similar warnings against the ingesting of blood for religious or health reasons were
soon a part of the teachings of all major faiths and cultures. But while culture, magic, and religion had amassed thousands of years of prohibitions concerning the shedding of blood, what could be more repulsive to the human psyche than the hybrid half-human, half-animal monsters bite the throats and drink the blood of men, women, and chil- dren? Vampires rose from their dank graves by night to sustain their spark of life through the drinking of blood. Werewolves devoured the flesh and blood of their victims by night or day.
Exactly. You don't "get high" from adrenaline, you get pumped and excited. Maybe for other species it gets them high though.

Its basically oxidation of adrenaline... and you can make it in vitro or extract it from other mammals besides the human being... so I'm not sure about this video...

I have noticed that my mind has recently begun to make almost immediate associations when certain stories or concepts strike me. The thought of grays slurping the blood of tortured cattle came to mind.
I have always associated the blood of mutilated cattle to be high in hormones released with fearful states. It's as if fear is the drug. I have no evidence of course nor have I read anything like it until now but somehow it makes sense.
Perhaps the tissues of the face have the highest concentrations of these hormones and that is why they are cauterized with lasers to prevent release before they are removed for later consumption by other demons not present at the ritual killing?
It's no secret that animals slaughtered quickly taste better and the blood is drained immediately to preserve flavor.
The other association was the preponderance of vampire programming on television and movies. Could it be conditioning prior to the return of the grays?
