    TV carried a story today about people being drugged and robbed on a train car that was next to the "ladies only" car. The passengers lost phones and cash.

    I thought that the reporter had a sense of humor. He reported that it is unusual for all passengers to sleep though the night on a train even if it doesn't derail. Ergo, the mass drugging conclusion.

    Perhaps the SRT does not share my mirth and merriment.

    From the Nation.

    Train passengers say they were drugged, robbed - The Nation

    Looks like a gas that has been used.

    I would not have thought that about air-con cars.

    I'm curious what kind of gas they might've used.

    Examples of modern volatile anaesthetics that may be considered sleeping gases are halothane vapour (Fluothane), methyl propyl ether (Neothyl), methoxyflurane (Penthrane),

    Contrary to popular belief, my farts will not put people to sleep. They have been known to trigger stampedes, though.

    Nitrous oxide is certainly readily available, but the victims reported headaches.
