Maybe the parents of the victims need to speak out and make a campaign of this to save other children from this terrible fate.

What next?! A ban on petrol because some idiots huff it, and it can ignite and burn you? Darwin was right. Irritatingly stupid commentary.

I guess the kids who don't huff solvents and gas must believe all the warnings that they've had. After chastising a young Maori man for huffing glue in Colombo St ChCh, and being told "It's cool" I have to conclude that the gene pool is getting stronger.

If teenagers are going to be idiots what can a handwringing society do about it. The bubble boy movie springs to mind, do we need more bubble wrap social services & govt legislation. Darwin is right about natural selection.
