Default Bengay kills a HS runner??

Sad story....

http://sports.espn.go.com/sports/hig...ory?id=2900337

What strikes me as being sad also was this statement by the mother....and how common that train of thought must be....

I struggled with that statement, too.

Dare I say booze, cigarettes, rat poison and trans fats are all over the counter, too.

It is a tragic story, but it needs to be seen in context.

methyl salicylate poisoning is RARE? Aspirin poisoning is one of the biggies each year:

Should I be worried about overuse of Maxoderm as well?

My buddy Brett once slapped Tiger Balm on my wiener.

It's a long story.

There was alcohol present.

i worked at a bike shop with several other hooligans, one of whom chose not to wear underwear or a belt. one day we gave a counter girl a thing of tiger balm and she pretty much filled up the crack. quite the site to behold.

I think you'd better switch to http://www.extenze.com/. It's endorsed by the Hedgehog himself, so you know it's good!
