According to pop culture the chemical known as chloroform is a real knockout- just apply it to a rag and cover someone’s mouth and nose with it and blamo! Your subject is out cold, waking up a little groggy but otherwise okay.
This wonder chemical seems like the perfect way to put your way too drunk friend down for a spell so the party can rage on, so why isn’t chloroform in every household in America?
Because Hollywood has been lying to us all, as you will discover in The Lies That Movies Tell Us, Chloroform edition by Zamboni Grenade and Hamilton 100.
It's a painfully drawn out way to make a point, but it'll show you what you're in for if you ever try to chloroform your buddy! (Don't try to chloroform anyone, it can kill them)
