Hey guys, i'm sure those of you who saw the movie fight club remember that hillarious speach by chloe... well if you don't remember, here it is:

Narrator: Oh yeah, Chloe... Chloe looked how Meryl Streep's skeleton would look if you made it smile and walk around the party being extra nice to everyone.
Chloe: Well, I'm still here. But I don't know for how long. That's as much certainty as anyone can give me... I have some good news: I no longer have any fear of death. [audience claps] But I am in a pretty lonely place. No one will have sex with me. I'm so close to the end and all I want is to get laid for the last time... I have pornographic movies in my apartment, lubricants, and amyl nitrate...
[the group leader takes the mic]
Group Leader: Everyone, let's thank Chloe.

Question: what does amyl nitrate do? I read on some website that it's a muscle relaxant, but i don't understand how it is used sexually.

It's called "poppers" by the gay community. It was called "rush" by the dead heads when I was growing up.

It comes in a little vile, and you sniff the fumes to get a rush. Some men supposedly find it enhances sex. I guess it acts kinda like the noose around the neck crap some people do.

What ever floats your boat, I guess...

similar to whip-its, or other forms of oxygen deprivation like huffing paint thinners, spot removers (tetrachloroflurine?).

Don't think it actually kills brain cells directly, but oxygen deprivation does kill brain cells.

It's not something to play around with. It's proper use is as a treatment for a type of heart disease called angina.

Also, the use of poppers has been associated with increased complications in people with AIDS. The majority of AIDS victims who suffer from Kaposi's Sarcoma were users of Amyl Nitrate, and died far faster... hinting abuse of the drug compromises the immune system considerably.
