Used to use them in boxing. Awful smell. I remember a guy on my team would put that menthol cream(a535 type of crap) all over himself before games to "wake him up and keep him cool". There was always a huge gap between him and everyone else on the bench. Sitting near the guy would burn your eyes.

One of the funniest experiences in my teenage life...

This dude was sort of the Ferris Bueller and leader of our gang. He got tons of chicks for us. He arranged huge parties with plenty of chicks to go around. Including and especially my house. But I had a mom who came home from work eventually, as working mothers tended to do. And it was kind of a tough sell when I had to watch as she screamed 30-50 people out of the house all the time at 12-1am.

Anyway this guy was great but he felt so insulated from everything that he stopped even trying to respect the fact that he needed to give the last call alerts. He would just get drunk and lay on the couch not caring. But I remembered my mom had this old vial of smelling salts from like the 1960s. Still apparently just as potent as when it was sold. I got the idea to hold it under his nose until it got him up.

It never worked, but it did wake him up and p*** him off for about 10 seconds every time. It was so funny how mad he'd get violently belligerent ... for a few seconds ... before passing back out that I stopped caring about getting the people out of the house. It was worth it just to laugh at his quickly dissipating anger. Over and over and over.

I don't know, somehow this doesn't seem like the right message we should see the athletes sending out to kids

I recommend them to open a can of surstromming on the bench.
Maybe opposing team will run away from the arena in panic...

Yes the equivalent of throwing water on your face is not the message we should be sending to our kids.

Patrick Vieira used to rub some kind of a menthol gel on his shirt to help him breathe.

Consumerism at it's best (or worse?).

One time a buddy of mine made me smell chlorene tablets in their container (So I didn't know what it was). That woke me up. Holy ****. Last time I actually smell something before actually looking at what it is.

That's a terrible idea. Chlorine gas builds up in the container, and inhaling that can make you black out. It happened to me once when I worked at the town pool, except with a container of industrial powdered chlorine.

Ammonia is pretty darn natural. Gatorade, on the other hand, would be considered artificial.

Not only black out, but trigger respiratory arrest. AKA: Death. Not a good idea at all.

Ammonia is in your body but it is converted into urea. It's also pretty prevalent in water species (fish, etc.) It's also a precursor for fertilizer!
