Now ain’t that a pretty flower. For anyone who thought the insanity of the pharmaceutical industry and their advertising was a recent development, it’s time to think again.
Check out these vintage drug ads with great taglines like:
When crisis demands quick-acting hypnotics…
Raise the emotional threshold against everyday stresses…Serpasil
Mabel is Unstable - She just can’t help being impatient and exasperating - It’s "that time" in her life. To see her through the menopause, there’s gentle "daytime sedation" in tranquilizing
and my two personal favorites:
Tyrant in the house? Thorazine can control the agitated, belligerent senile.
Now she can cook breakfast again…when you prescribe new Mornidine.
Be sure to peep them all.
Now I’m sad to say this is the second post on this site about people getting in trouble because they had to brag about their illicit activities online. This one goes right up there with the genius on "America’s Stupidest Criminals" who rappelled (ninja-style) into the atrium of a bank in hopes of robbing it, while it was still open (not ninja-style)…
Some young ninja-ette in Minnessota apparently put enough information about her horticultural activities up on an unnamed social networking site (read MySpace), that local police were able to get a warrant to search her residence. When local police and DEA agents showed up, they found 2000 ganja plants, which they subsequently destroyed.
This chick clearly needs some ninja lessons on how to keep her ish off the radar. However, the fact that 2000 marijuana plants were burned, and not for the purposes of enlightenment, surely robs her of her otherwise well-earned ninjadom. Ninjas of the world, learn from this youngin’s mistakes - Stop Snitching [on yourself]!
Surely there was a DEA agent who is a secret-toker and sat by that 2000 plant bonfire breathing deeply - he is a ninja for sure…

Disclaimer: myninjaplease does not support witness intimidation, despite the aforementioned ‘Stop Snitching’ reference - if some thug on your block accidentally blasted a 2-year-old in a drive by, rat his punk ass out. However, if some chick is growing 2000 herb plants in her parents crib, marry her and have her move in!
Ever considered that you’ve been conditioned, on the deepest level, to interface with almost all of your computers strictly through a clickable interface? Would it be hard for you to switch up the way you interact with your machines to something completely different?
DontClick.It asks, "What if we had a different interface?" It is both a testament to and test of our reliance on clicking.
"It started as an abstract idea, where the outcome initially was uncertain. It slowly grew to what it is now an interface that wants to navigate under special conditions which provides answer to a fundamental question. Can we resist to click?"
The advertising campaign for the upcoming cult classic, Snakes on a Plane, gets pretty crazy down in Atlanta.
