My younger brother had the cool idea of a poison that gave someone instant jet-lag. :)

Not the strongest - that'd just put you to sleep. :rofl:

*chuckles*

In a sci-fi story I wrote once, the villain used a poison that increased his victim's sensitivity to pain. Thus, he could reduce a fully grown man to tears by just lightly pricking him with a needle.

ZERO actual damage. All the pain necessary.

My distinct pleasuring of displeasure. I've gotten to see your evil side I never knew of over the past couple days.

I'm going to want to buy that book.

One of the most intense poisoning scenes ever has to be the one with Dumbledore drinking out of the crystal pedestal thing in The Half-Blood Prince.

I toyed with a similar idea for Nomad's story. :book:

*laughs* No, and I think that it would serve my purposes better to use something that increases a person's resilence to damage instead -- so I probably won't be using it. :)

I've used poison in my trilogy, but it was an injectible dart given intramuscularly. Tierin didn't die, but rather, was tortured by different extremes within his body (short and possibly confusing version).

I've never actually poisoned someone in the sense of a regular poison...

A cool poison would be one that could causes hallucinations. Oh, like the hallucinations caused by those bugs in the first Hunger Games book. That was cool. It makes all your greatest fears come to life.

Come – to life? You mean it seems like they're real? That would be an interesting poison. Very nasty poison. I've heard of poisons that amplify your fear, and I have heard of places that make your fears come true, but never a poison that makes your fears come true.

That type of poison was used in the first movie of the recent Batman trilogy as well.

That proves it's a cool poison if it was in Batman. Batman is amazing. Yeah, it makes it seem as if your fears are happening or are coming true. It was so cool in Hunger Games. Too bad I never saw the first movie of the Batman trilogy, but I much prefer the cartoons, especially Justice League.

Sort of the opposite of the grog (or was it rum?) that the (dwarves?) gave Rip Van Winkle?

I specialize in those. :twisted: Well in knowledge about them. They are quite scary thought. :pale: But very interesting when they shut down your nerve's.

That's what they can do, they can stop your nerves from communicating to your brain, when this happens after about half-an-hour your lungs or heart shut down.
