Posted:The most dangerous stage of rave parties for ravers, medical personnel, and law enforcement officers is called "glowsticking." An individual with glowsticks is an raver who probably has not slept in 3-15 days and is irritable and paranoid. Glowsticks often behave or react violently and if a raver is using alcohol or another depressant, his negative feelings and associated dangers intensify. The raver craves more glowsticks, but no amount will help re-create the euphoric high, which causes frustration, and leads to unpredictability and potential for violence. A glowsticking raver can appear normal: pupils can be fully dialated, speech concise, and movements brisk. But a closer look will reveal the person's hands are moving ten times faster than normal, the voice has a slight quiver, and movements are quick and jerky. These physical signs are more difficult to identify if the raver is has attached the glowsticks to strings.When approaching or communicating with a person dancing with glowsticks your safety should be of prime importance.Approaching or communicating with a person dancing with glowsticksKeep a 7-10 ft. distance. Coming too close can be perceived as wanting a "light show". Do not shine bright lights at him. The raver is already paranoid and if blinded by a bright light he is likely to run or loose control of the glowsticks, possibly killing thousands. Slow your speech and lower the pitch of your voice. A glowsticking E-tard already hears sounds at a fast pace and in a high pitch. Slow your movements. This will decrease the odds that the raver will misinterpret your physical actions as dancing. Keep your hands visible. If you place your hands where the raver cannot see them, he might feel threatened and could become violent. Remember to wear a Level III or higher Bullet-resistant vest and plenty of eye protecting, in case one of the glowsticks comes flying straight at you. I know this goes really well with the disgruntled E-tard thread that is running, and you can move it if you like, but I felt it needed a place of it's own. Anyone who has visited Ithica's site would have probably already seen this. If not then you can check out the site at www.geocities.com/snackrelatedmishap and click on 'with frames'.PLUR(RE) ---J---
