May the wind be at your back,
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
And may you be in heaven half an hour before the devil knows you're dead.

RIP Ripper.

Love to his family and friends.

This really sucks!! I didn't know Ripper, but that don't fucking matter to me. I'm still very upset and moved, because I'm sure I would have liked the guy. I just hate to hear about overdose deaths, such a big rip-off, the guy just wanted to get high and he was ripped off with death instead. I light a candle in my heart for the man I never knew. :frown:  (edit): Plus I just gave him his 5 shroomz...

annielicious said, "i hope what the mushies have shown me, makes you in a better place."

So very true.

I'm sitting here crying at my desk. He was a smart guy, only in his mid 20's I believe. I know he was engaged and it was broken off many months ago. I am so unhappy.

I know he's in a better place but it still hurts.

Here are a few of his contributions.

Shredding Straw Made Easy

Rippers Rye Tek

My love goes to his family, friends, and all who he found special.

You'll be deeply missed Ripper

I'm questioning the existance of these websites, why don't we do more to fight against drug abuse?

Jeelix, please man after what you've been through stay away from this shit.. Please do it for your friends and family who love you.

God damn drugs, pharms are becoming a god damn plague





I think more needs to be done here and at certain other sites to differentiate between naturally occurring halucinogens and dangerous stimulants and depressants. Just sticking our heads in the sand and saying that whatever other people want to do to themselves doesn't cut it. More effort needs to go into explaining the dangers of these things and prevent people from using them if possible.

right on superpimp! It may be impossible to change, but this website may have been better off sticking to mushrooms and ethno's...



A lot of people who use mushrooms also use other drugs; to ignore that would be at our own peril.

For the loss of our friend ripper, I'd like to think that the Other Drugs forum has helped avoid many other deaths.

We should however do more to stop this kind of thing from happening; I know its impossible to stop it completely, but any one person we reach makes the effort worthwhile.

If you research the archives of OD from about a year ago,
it seems there were more people interested in curbing/ eliminating
the spread of misinformation on some of the more dangerous drugs.

A lot of those people are gone. I hate to say it,
but if some of those people would have been around
to help educate Ripper (without being assholish about it)
he may not have done what he did.

Maybe some of those people will return, or others
with the same agenda will take their place.

We can only hope, for the sake of future Rippers.

With regards to changing people's attitudes and/or differentiating between hallucinagens and stims/deps I think that in reality most people in these forums have made their decisions about drugs, and that's that. I am a little pragmatic at times but I know that if this place somehow got all preachy about stims/deps I would probably chuckle a little.
The term gateway drugs comes to mind, but just as someone who progresses to harder drugs from softer ones usually has a problem, then trying to tell those people that they shouldn't is kind of like preaching to the choir: those who can listen already agree with you, whereas those with addictive personalities who reach out to harder drugs are not in a situation to listen.
There will always be drug overdoses, not matter if you ban them, educate about them or accept them. I personally believe, as I had a childhood friend descend into the clandestine world of hard drug abuse and subsequent OD death, that it is not a matter of what can we do to stop it, but accepting it as a tragedy that is an unfortunate reality of the human condition.

I applaud all those who express sympathy, and also applaud those who seek change to avoid this happening again, but people's homes are a better place to find change, not a mushroom growing chat shack.

I hope I did not offend anyone who knew Ripper, or someone else who has perished thusly.

This is a true loss, as it is when anyone (or anything) passes.  :frown:It makes it all the more hard to deal with when it is someone that we've all come to know. We need to educate people who visit this site more about the effects, positive and negative, of the consumption of different kinds of drugs first, before we teach them how to produce or aquire them. Just my two cents though, cause I never, EVER want to see anything like this happen again. It is a terrible thing to say, but maybe some of us around here can use this horrible example to learn from. In fact, we must learn from this so at least something positive can come from this horrible tragedy.

  IF YOU PLAY WITH FIRE, YOU CAN GET BURNED
  REMEMBER THIS ALWAYS!!!!

I'm very upset over Rippers death...I ended up crying too.
I send my condolences to his friends and family.

I OD'd several times when I was younger from messing around with too many drugs.
Ending up in the Emergency Room at Harbor View...dying on the table once... being brought back to life... then going back out and abusing drugs again and again.

16 years ago I stopped using anything...including alcohol...I needed to clean up my life...and I did.
3 years ago...I started having a few beers and smoking a little weed again.
2 years ago...I started doing mushrooms again.
I really don't over do these now...I learned my lesson years ago.
I learned to respect them.

I have 2 kids....I want to watch them grow up.
Today I want to live...there was a time in my life that I felt like I was bulletproof.
I look back on my using/abusing days and wonder why I'm still alive.

I think about how I could have died like Ripper.
It deeply saddens me that he will never experience some of the things that I have been allowed to see and do in my life.
I makes me sick knowing that he probably won't be the last member here to die from abusing drugs.

I have been a little emotional since last night...and waited to post this.

I know this is a drug site...but its not a drug abuse site.
Please...I'm begging you not to be the next fallen member.
If you have a problem with drugs...Please get some help!
The life you save might be your own.

I truely care about all of you....and if anyone ever needs to talk to someone....please feel free to contact me.
I'll be more than glad to listen....no matter what the problem is.

Brandon....Rest in Peace!
May you be the last fallen shroomerite!
See you on the other side~

When you teach people that all drugs are bad,they oftentimes experiment with all drugs.I was fortunant that my dad taught me that Cannabis,Shrooms,some roots and berries could take you places without hurting yourself.Thank you Dad for giving me that.We must all tell our friends and family's of the alternatives to pharmacutical drugs to prevent this .My condolences to ripper's family.
