Hey guys, I heard you get high from inhaling the air inside the whip cream can, is this true? If it does work are there any long term sideaffects such as brain damage etc

Yes, you can, and with compressed air cans... But it's SO NOT a good idea... Break into your parents' liquor cabinet, it's MUCH safer.. Or make friends with someone that works at Starbucks and get the nitrous cans they use for their whipped cream... Peace and love.
actually guys, not trying to promote it but its really not that dangerous. the misconception is that is limits oxegyn to the brain which causes the high. this is not true. it is the presence of nitrous not the lack of oxygen that causes the high. it is pretty safe and used as a relaxant in doctors offices
Yeah, N2O is also known as "laughing gas" and is pretty common in most dentist/orthodontist offices as well as in hospitals, so yeah, it's safe.
Don't do it out of a whipped cream can though, as each can is equal to only one N2O canister...and you can buy the nitrous chargers online for pretty cheap, fill a balloon with 2 canisters, get really lightheaded and hear the "bwaa bwaa bwaaa" sounds without wasting any whipped cream
hmm, can someone tell me why it's soo dangerous??
N20... = fun.. no?
pardon the ignorance on this one.. just a question =)
its not, in moderation that is.
thats the whole point
You would only really run into problems (health-wise) if you had a 50lb tank of N2O and a gas mask...
When it is used during surgery, an anaesthesiologist needs to be present to make sure the patient is taking the correct/safe amount of 'laughing gas'...but a few canisters comes nowhere close to the amount that you would get during surgery.
