Just when you thought you knew the names of all the drugs your kid might experimenting with, along comes iDosing.

What is it? iDosing is basically donning headphones and listening to droning noises that allegedly have an almost hallucinatory effect on the listener, temporarily altering brainwaves. Judging by the videos of teens filming themselves getting "high," it's a popular pastime.

The MP3 files and CDs are available for download via Internet sites like, which sells a CD package that it claims will "synchronize your brainwaves to the same state as the recreational dose" of marijuana, cocaine, opium and peyote.

As Wired reporter Ryan Singel wrote, "Kids around the country are getting high on the Internet, thanks to MP3s that induce a state of ecstasy. And it could be a gateway drug leading teens to real-world narcotics."

Cause for concern ... or harmless teenage fun?

Nothing is more admirable than the fortitude with which millionaires tolerate the disadvantages of their wealth.

Well, seeing as how I am a teen, and I have never heard of iDosing before in my life, it can’t be that big of a problem. And really, how is listening to some music notes going to harm your brain?

Eccentricity is not, as dull people would have us believe, a form of madness. It is often a kind of innocent pride, and the man of genius and the aristocrat are frequently regarded as eccentrics because genius and aristocrat are entirely unafraid of and uninfluenced by the opinions and vagaries of the crowd.
