2-Year-Old Has Pack-a-Day Smoking Habit

samzenpus posted more than 5 years ago | from the menthol-binkie-ultra-lights dept.

Idle 10

The parents of a 2-year-old Chinese boy are seeking advice on how to help their child kick his smoking habit. The toddler has been smoking for over a year and was allowed to start to help deal with the pain of a hernia. His parents say that his smoking is getting out of control, but they are unsure on how to get him to quit. The terrible twos are bad, but imagine the horror of a 2-year-old in the middle of a nic-fit tantrum.

ESR's favorite mixed drinks⦠(-1, Troll)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#28544343)

Eric Raymond usually sticks with his JÃgermeister, straight up and ice cold. But every so often, when our hero is out and about giving important talks to Linux fans across the globe, he'll have a mixed drink. Here are a few of his favorites.

Chocolate Milk

Perfecting a concoction initially invented by Emad [] and friends, Eric says it's a favorite of new Linux users. "It's got that young taste."

Served: On the rocks with novelty penis straw.

Garnish: n/a


  • 2 parts vodka
  • 1 part diarrhea
  • 1 part semen
  • Chocolate powder to taste

Preparation: Shake and serve. Alternately, may blend with ice.

Golden Shower

On the go most of the time, Eric said this drink has everything needed to give him a stiff kick in the pants. "And you can keep recycling it too, perfect for traveling."

Served: On the rocks.

Garnish: Lemon wedge.


  • 2 parts GoldschlÃger
  • 1 part Red Bull
  • 1 part urine

Preparation: Mix and serve.

Jamaican Cum

Eric was first introduced to this drink while speaking at a JaLUG [] meeting and he still orders it every time he's in the Bahamas. If you're at the right bar, you'll get the right kind of "cream."

Served: On the rocks.

Garnish: Two maraschino cherries.


  • 3 parts spiced rum
  • 1 part "cream"

Preparation: Mix and serve.

Kernel Dump

As Eric told the story, he made this drink one night while bored in bed with dysentery. "It might have been cholera," he said, "but either way it kicks."

Served: Straight up.

Garnish: n/a.


  • 1 part JÃgermeister
  • 1 part diarrhea

Preparation: Pour diarrhea first, then JÃgermeister. May be served shot-glass-in-tumbler for effect.


Eric calls this "the summer drink" (italics his).

Served: In an Old-fashioned glass over shaved ice.

Garnish: half banana.


  • 1 part 99 Bananas
  • 1 part semen

Preparation: Shake and serve.

Used Motor Oil

Eric got the idea for this drink after an argument with Rob "CmdrTaco" Malda [] . "It's really simple," Eric quipped, taking a mason jar out of his refrigerator. "You just have to save up ahead of time."

Served: Straight up.

Garnish: Sprig of mint.


  • 1 part JÃgermeister
  • 1 part semen

Preparation: Mix and serve.

If he's additcted at age 2... (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 5 years ago | (#28545321)

I have a feeling the problem of how to get him to quit may soon take care of itself.

I'll tell them how... (3, Insightful)

Try taking away his cigarettes!

Yeah, that was the first thing that popped into my head. But what do I know?

jayme0227 (1558821) | more than 5 years ago | (#28549683)

Try taking away the parents.

If I recall correctly... (1)

denzacar (181829) | more than 5 years ago | (#28552099)

...from another source (since this story is at least a weak old) the kid starts to yell, scream and generally goes apeshit without the cigarettes.
See... he is an addict, but with a health problem that his addiction makes bearable.

Unlike some other [] kids [] out [] there. []

oh.. so like a normal 2 year old that a had a toy taken away?

More like... (1)

denzacar (181829) | more than 5 years ago | (#28555953)

A "normal" 2-year-old with hernia pain, which won't go away even after it gets tired of crying and falls asleep.
Aaaand... besides the pain it also has an addiction to a chemical stimulant.

So yeah... kinda like a kid you take a toy away from - if by "toy" you mean body part, and by "take away" you mean cut off.
Yeah... very similar. Not QUITE the same though.

Why the hell did he think smoking cigarettes would help with the hernia pain? this is ridiculous. Reminds me of when my ex thought it was cool to get our baby drunk while I was making dinner. Some dads need a good slap, IMO.
