    Burn it down before the kids find out about it and expect to come on your trip to Vegas.

    Took my two to an indoor airconditioned amusement park on the Las Vegas Strip. Place kinda sucked. Never again took them to the strip.
    I had a pocket full of betel nut and was chewing that the whole time. When I'd finish one, which then looked like a teacup poodle poo-poo, I'd throw in on the floor. The cleaners were griping about people letting their babies poo-poo on the floor.

    I saw drivers in Africa on that show " Worlds Most Dangerous Roads." And they were gnawing on those betel nuts constantly. What do they do give a energy boost?

    Depends on how they're prepared. I buy them in China from "Betel Nut Girls" or "Betel Nut Beauties" and bring them back to the states. Customs hasn't ever questioned it. I don't buy the ones with opium mixed in.

    I watched that episode and given the ROADS they drive, death from Betel Nuts appears as insignificant or they somehow have generated tolerances.

    BETEL NUT: Overview, Uses, Side Effects, Precautions, Interactions, Dosing and Reviews
    Side Effects
    When taken by mouth: There isn't enough reliable information to know if betel nut is safe to take in small doses or for a short time. But betel nut is LIKELY UNSAFE when taken long-term or in high doses. Some of the chemicals in betel nut have been associated with cancer. Other chemicals are poisonous. Eating 8-30 grams of betel nut can cause death.

    Special Precautions and Warnings
    When taken by mouth: There isn't enough reliable information to know if betel nut is safe to take in small doses or for a short time. But betel nut is LIKELY UNSAFE when taken long-term or in high doses. Some of the chemicals in betel nut have been associated with cancer. Other chemicals are poisonous. Eating 8-30 grams of betel nut can cause death.

    Chewing betel nut can make your mouth, lips, and stool turn red. It can cause stimulant effects similar to caffeine and tobacco use. It can also cause more severe effects including vomiting, diarrhea, gum problems, increased saliva, kidney disease, chest pain, abnormal heart beat, low blood pressure, shortness of breath and rapid breathing, heart attack, coma, and death. It's LIKELY UNSAFE for anyone to take betel nut by mouth for more than a short time.

    Betel nut is especially dangerous for people with the following conditions:

    Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Taking betel nut by mouth is LIKELY UNSAFE. Betel nut can affect the central nervous system and this might endanger a pregnancy. Chemicals in betel nut might pass into breast milk and harm a nursing infant. Stay on the safe side and avoid using betel nut if you are pregnant or breast-feeding.

    Asthma: Betel nut might make asthma worse.

    Slow heart rate (bradycardia): Betel nut might slow down the heart beat. This could be a problem in people who already have a slow heart rate.

    Heart disease: People with heart disease might have an increased risk of having a heart attack if they use betel nut. If you have heart disease, do not use betel nut.

    Gastrointestinal tract blockage: Betel nut might cause "congestion" in the intestines. This might cause problems in people who have a blockage in their intestines.

    Stomach ulcers: Betel nut might increase secretions in the stomach and intestines. There is concern that this could worsen ulcers.

    Lung conditions: Betel nut might increase fluid secretions in the lung. There is concern that this could worsen lung conditions, such as asthma or emphysema.

    Seizures: There is concern that betel nut might increase the risk of seizures.

    Urinary tract obstruction: Betel nut might increase secretions in the urinary tract. There is concern that this could worsen urinary obstruction.
