Gerin Oil (or Geriniol, to give it its scientific name) is a powerful drug of the class Anagram C that acts directly on the central nervous system to produce a range of symptoms, often of an antisocial or self-damaging nature. It can permanently modify the child brain to produce adult disorders, including dangerous delusions that are hard to treat. The four doomed flights of September 11, 2001, were Gerin Oil trips: all nineteen of the hijackers were high on the drug at the time. Historically, Geriniolism was responsible for atrocities such as the Salem witch hunts, the massacres of native South Americans by Conquistadores and the holocaust of Europe in the 1930s and 40s. Gerin Oil fuelled most of the wars of the European Middle Ages and, in more recent times, the carnage that attended the partitioning of the Indian subcontinent and of Ireland.
Gerinoil is a mixture of the crystal germanium oxide II and an organic solvent. It occurs naturally in certain plants of central Asia. It is thought that it acts as a toxin to discourage herbivores from eating it. It had been used as a narcotic in that part of the world since the 7th century.
The first scientist to study the chemical in detail was evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. He was originally studying it to understand its evolutionary origins, but later became interested in its use as a narcotic and hallucinogen. He wrote a book about the “delusions” caused by the drug in September 2006 and made a program earlier that year detailing its effects upon mankind. The broadcaster’s of the program, Channel 4, decided to call the program “The Root of All Evil” just to piss off consumers of the drug.
edit Effects of the drug
Gerin Oil intoxication can drive previously sane individuals to run away from a normally fulfilled human life and retreat to closed communities of confirmed addicts. These communities are usually limited to one sex only, and they vigorously, often obsessively, forbid sexual activity. Indeed, a tendency towards agonized sexual prohibition emerges as a drably recurring theme amid all the colorful variations of Gerin Oil symptomatology. Gerin Oil does not seem to reduce the libido per se, but it frequently leads to a preoccupation with reducing the sexual pleasure of others. A current example is the prurience with which many habitual "Oilers" condemn homosexuality.
As with other drugs, refined Gerin Oil in low doses is largely harmless, and can serve as a lubricant on social occasions such as marriages, funerals, and state ceremonies. Experts differ over whether such social tripping, though harmless in itself, is a risk factor for upgrading to harder and more addictive forms of the drug.
Medium doses of Gerin Oil, though not in themselves dangerous, can distort perceptions of reality. Beliefs that have no basis in fact are immunized, by the drug's direct effects on the nervous system, against evidence from the real world. Oilheads can be heard talking to thin air or muttering to themselves, apparently in the belief that private wishes so expressed will come true, even at the cost of other people's welfare and mild violation of the laws of physics. This autolocutory disorder is often accompanied by weird tics and hand gestures, manic stereoptypies such as rhythmic headnodding toward a wall, or Obsessive Compulsive Orientation Syndrome (OCOS: facing towards the east five times a day).
Gerin Oil in strong doses is hallucinogenic. Hardcore mainliners may hear voices in the head, or experience visual illusions that seem to the sufferers so real that they often succeed in persuading others of their realitiy. An individual who convincingly reports high-grade hallucinations may be venerated, and even followed as some kind of leader, by others who regard themselves as less fortunate. Such follower-pathology can long postdate the original leader's death, and may expand into bizarre psychedelia such as the cannibalistic fantasy of "drinking the blood and eating the flesh" of the leader.
Chronic abuse of Geriniol can lead to "bad trips", in which the user suffers terrifying delusions, including fears of being tortured, not in the real world but in a postmortem fantasy world. Bad trips of this kind are bound up with a morbid punishment-lore that is as characterstic of this drug as the obsessive fear of sexuality already noted. The punishment-culture fostered by Gerin Oil ranges from "smack" through "lash" to getting "stoned" (especiallly adulteresses and rape victims), and "demanifestation" (amputation of one hand), up to the sinister fantasy of allo-punishment or "cross-topping", the execution of one individual for the sins of others.
edit Control of the drug
You might think that such a potentially dangerous and addictive drug would head the list of proscribed intoxicants, with exemplary sentences handed out for pushing it. But no, it is readily obtainable anywhere in the world and you don't even need a prescription. Professional traffickers are numerous, and organized in hierarchical cartels, openly trading on street corners and in purpose-made buildings. Some of these cartels are adept at fleecing poor people desperate to feed their habit. "Godfathers" occupy influential poisitions in high places, and they have the ear of royalty, of presidents and of prime ministers. Governments don't just turn a blind eye to the trade, they grant it tax-exempt status. Worse, they subsidize schools founded with the specific intention of getting children hooked.
People who do not consume the drug, commonly known as atheists, are looked down upon in many places in the world. Some atheists have decided that enough is enough and that they need to fight back, not using violence (since most atheists are over-polite, soft pussies), but using reason and by demonstrating how damaging the effects of Gerinoil are upon the human nervous system. The previously mentioned scientist Richard Dawkins is probably the best known atheist in the world right now.
Some people who are hooked on Gerinoil like to point out that many bad people in history were not consuming the drug while carrying out their evil acts. Certain other narcotics like communism can cause people to behave in fanatic and dangerous ways too. Some people have argued that only the drug the evil person is consuming, not the drug the evil person isn’t consuming can cause the observed behaviour, but they would say that, wouldn’t they?
