Man what I wouldn't do to chew on a few Peruvian coca plant leaves to see what that's like... Anyone have Peruvian coca plant seeds to give me?

I never heard the word Flit Gun before. I had to look up what it was. Saw them in flea markets or something, but never knew their name, or that it had a name.

Yup! That's the Flit gun. Pretty basic but very effective. No aerosols - no need! Pour the concoction into the attached container and pump the handle.

I once spray painted a model airplane with one of those.

These Flit ads are something else. Seems these ads started in the late 20's onwards to WW2. ....AND, get this, Mostly drawn by Dr. Seuss before Dr. Seuss became famous! I never knew any of this.

That first ad in the previous post would get you tossed in jail today. Obviously came from a time when slavery and segregation by skin colour was still around. Today if you sprayed this in your kids room you would be arrested and your kid taken from you for endangering a child.

More pre-war (and war) Dr. Seuss ads:

These vintage ads are just fantastic! (minus the obvious racism, of course).

Can you imagine the headlines this would make today of some mother spraying her kids room with DDT? lol

Hope you enjoy these vintage ads. I sure do. Couldn't find one site that just had them all. Dave, create a vintage DDT ad site!

If you look real carefully you will see Dr. Seuss' signature on many of the Flit-DDT ads.

EDIT:
The, "DDT is Good For Mee" ad/song above is dated 1947.

Some more DDT stuff that was the norm back then, and would have you locked up today:

DDT Wallpaper for kids!! I never even knew this existed. Lick the wall Johnny. LOL Man, the chem companies really ruled peoples minds back then with wacko marketing, ay. Not that it's much different with marketing today...

I read a research paper linking ADD to DDT. But then again, LSD, PCP and HST can cause the same thing. Just ask your doc for some Ritalin. All will be fine after...

Guess that's why the mood-altering hole in the pocket exists. :lol:

EDIT:

I wish to formally apologize to Dave here for making fun of the hole he has in his pocket.

I only now just found out that Vancouver people don't have sex.

Vancouver parents aren't having sex, poll suggests

Dave, I'm sorry. Not like I knew! Maybe someone here can give you a hand...
