WTF is "lean" ?


AeAeR t1_iu5r3a4 wrote

Cough syrup mixed with soda


SoftlySpokenPromises t1_iu5zejm wrote

Shit, used to call that sizzurp


AeAeR t1_iu69v20 wrote

Yup that’s exactly my experience

Edit: seems like lean might be painkillers instead of DXM, but ultimately it’s cough syrup drugs and soda.


AHind_D t1_iu6dndh wrote

Yea real lean is codeine with promethazine cough syrup mixed with a soft drink, ice and occasionally jolly ranchers hard candy thrown in.


AeAeR t1_iu6dw8i wrote

Ah so one is prescription drugs and the other is OTC, and ultimately different drug types.

I’m glad I had sizzurp and not lean in that case, nothing good comes from painkillers.


AHind_D t1_iu6fwi9 wrote

Lol sizzurp and lean are the same thing. At least in Texas where all of this originates. Whatever you had wasn't sizzurp, purp, lean, drank etc. It was some other shit.


AeAeR t1_iu6g9wc wrote

Man in New Jersey it was the same shit too but now I’m old and kids love their fucking opioids. The difference was we were going for DXM and not Oxy. It’s a completely different goal, we were trying to trip, not nod out.


AHind_D t1_iu6h8l0 wrote

DXM isn't lean though. People have been drinking codeine with promethazine since at least the 90s. The song "Sippin on Sizzurp" came out in the 90s and it's about opiate cough syrup. It's nothing new.


AeAeR t1_iu6hkkv wrote

Sizzurp was Robotripping with sprite to like, all of New Jersey and New York, I was in college in north jersey for that to come out and it’s what people were doing. I understand that it’s different now but it was largely the same shit back then.


Spunkywhiteboy87 t1_iu89xs0 wrote

Jersey here also and sizzurp was always lean to us. Codeine syrup and promethazine. Robotripping was just called robotripping.


CrumpledShinSplints t1_iu7sjn0 wrote

There's not much codeine in it though, not anywhere near enough to get you to 'nod out' or anything. The promethazine and alcohol combination do a lot of the heavy lifting.


Satrina_petrova t1_iu6zmjw wrote

When I was a crappy teenager I just stole out of the freezer/cabinet whatever wouldn't get noticed but I realize now how lucky I apparently was.

On a side note Kahlua does not sit well with red wine and hot wings.


roybringus t1_iu70qao wrote

Drinking a bottle of robitussin is so much worse for your liver than the codeine


BoogityBoos t1_iu71kpm wrote

Not if you get the kind without acetaminophen. It’s harder to find but it’s out there. You can also extract dxm pretty easily from syrup


Jojoflap t1_iu62tdn wrote

I just skip the soda and down the syrup straight from the bottle. I love me my dex.


ku420guy t1_iu6afuk wrote

Lean is promethazine Dex is the child shit you get over the counter. Not the same cough syrup But dextromethorphan is pretty entertaining LOL


Jojoflap t1_iu8bxj3 wrote

They're now selling DXM as an antidepressant, or at least the FDA approved it


Satrina_petrova t1_iu5rb1c wrote

Eww, thanks.


Kerbal634 t1_iu5yyxh wrote

Was better when cough syrup had codeine


AeAeR t1_iu6bc2c wrote

Oh it still does, you just need a script. Still don’t for DXM


AeAeR t1_iu5rssw wrote

Yeah not my thing either, but when I had it, it was robotussin and sprite.


Stringy-glove7 t1_iu68g42 wrote

Lol seriously? It's supposed to be codeine cough syrup not over the counter robotussin. Maybe you confused it with tussinex? Which is hydrocodone in a syrup


AeAeR t1_iu69njw wrote

It’s funny how I can tell you’re younger than me from this. Do you not know why Robo tripping is called that? You kids and your painkiller dependencies, we were trying to trip balls not be pk bums.


Stringy-glove7 t1_iu6ykkt wrote

I didn't see your edit when I replied so I wanted to come back and tell you that it's weird to have this kind of elitist mind set as a person tripping on dxm lol that's definitely some bum activity.


CrumpledShinSplints t1_iu7ssye wrote

That's just extending the displeasure. In high school I would just down the bottle in one. Hit faster that way too.


showers_with_grandpa t1_iu5zna1 wrote

Specifically codeine syrup, not just like kid's cough syrup. You also would pop a jolly rancher or similar candy to dissolve while drinking


anotherboringdude t1_iu68u11 wrote

You can definitely robotrip from a couple bottles of kids Robitussin. It's not fun or taste good, but some people seem to like it.


matt2993 t1_iu7t8rr wrote

Yeah thats called being on robitussin. We're talking about LEAN boy


sabersquirl t1_iu61gok wrote

It used to be relatively more common 10 years ago or so. Usually Sprite with cough syrup. Also called purple dr(i/a)nk. Within the last decade or so they made it less available by making it so you need to be over 18 to legally buy codeine cough syrup, but it of course still exists.

You sift eggs and it doesn't break up the yolk? That sounds like sorcery.


aminorman OP t1_iu8ygwi wrote

Sift as in the tool not the harsher action required for flour. Crack the egg in the sieve/strainer and let it drip. Gently pour into holding cup. Minimum magic spells required.


twolephants t1_iu5d11c wrote

What's your technique for the eggs? They look great, and looking at your post history, clearly not just a happy accident. Pan, temp, oil/butter, cover/ not cover, spoon/don't spoon - please share how you do them in detail 🙏


aminorman OP t1_iu5rsg9 wrote

I've started buying extra large eggs just for my fry ups. I have a couple of nice dedicated egg pans. I recently bought a 10in Ninja Non-Stick skillet for my hash brown experiments. I tried it with these eggs and love it. That aside cooking pretty eggs takes practice.

I sieve (flour sifter) each one and hold each in it's own round bottom cup . Sieving removes the wispy bit just like prepping poached eggs. I tried a fine and a course sieve. The courser worked best.

Preheat your best pan to medium high. Add one tbsp of ghee. Other fats will work but I've been making my own lately for other experiments.

Reduce the heat to medium heat. Tilt the pan to make pool of ghee. Let it flow back and an put egg right on it. Gently tilt the pan in another direction to make pool of ghee. Let it flow back and an egg right on it. Repeat as needed. All the eggs are in the pan at once. Add more ghee if needed for pools.

Reduce heat to low heat and swish the eggs around. They should move easily.

Baste the whites with any ghee in the pan. Add more ghee if you can't get a spoonful.

If the eggs start to crisp (mine did a little in this cook) remove from the heat completely for a bit. Continue basting the whites until you're happy.

Low and slow makes nice eggs.


twolephants t1_iu5u9u8 wrote

Thank you! I genuinely really appreciate it - I know it takes time to set this out and share. Sieving for fried is new to me - done it with poached before, but obv makes total sense with fried also. Ghee is a revelation - can totally see it. My prob has always been the additives they often add to store bought so it keeps - but making my own will solve that. And have prob been cooking them a little quick - will slow down in future (although I'd argue there's a time and place for crispy(ish) fried eggs). Thanks 👍


aminorman OP t1_iu5vsw9 wrote

Sieving took me to another level for individual eggs. I used to do 3-way groups but they take too much room on the plate.

My daughter loves crispy edges gif


schwarzkraut t1_iu5jijg wrote

Not the OP, but I’ve found the secret to perfect eggs is a very good non-stick pan so that you only need a minimal amount of fat in the pan (vegetable oil, not butter or anything pretending to be butter) AND knowing your stove. Does it heat consistently or are there big variances in temperature. The pan should never get too hot. Patience is key. No violent bubbling or sizzling. Eggs cooked slowly tend to be more picturesque than eggs cooked in a hurry. Covering them towards the end of cooking can help solidify the whites, but if too much steam builds up it will cause a translucent film to develop over the yolk…making them look like a stereotypical blind martial arts master in a movie. Personally, I like them that way. My grandma called them “blind eggs” when she made them. If you like your yolks without this then be very attentive if you cover them…maybe use a clear lid…otherwise cook them uncovered & allow extra cooking time at a slightly reduced temperature.


this_dudeagain t1_iu5uicd wrote

Meh I'd rather have my eggs be slightly crispy on the edges than soft.

can anyone help clarify the difference in taste between lean bacon and jowl bacon?


QuestGiver t1_iu5nb8a wrote

Joel bacon is bacon made from the jowl of the big. Reasonably fatty.

Lean is a drink made of codeine. Recently an nba player made the news drinking it.


RexLongbone t1_iu6n682 wrote

The taste difference is pretty subtle IMO. I mostly just buy jowl bacon now because it's cheaper by the pound around here for whatever reason and I don't really notice a difference unless I ate regular bacon very recently.
