Whimsical Effects of Nitrous Oxide Gas

In addition to the massive intake of nitrous oxide (for purely scientific purposes....) by Humphry Davy (see here), the following illustrate the use of the gas for inebriation. 

Cheap Drunkeness from The Chemist, 1824 -

The inhalation of Nitrous Oxide is NOT RECOMMENDED. The preparation of the gas as detailed elsewhere on this site is extremely dangerous (propensity of ammonium nitrate to detonate), and produces an impure gas which will poison you. Nitrous users who inhale from bottled gas risk frozen vocal chords, hypoxic irreversible brain damage, induced neuropathy and myeloneuropathy, inhibition of methionine synthase activity because of interaction with cobalt in vitamin B12, death by suffocation, unconciousness and laughter.
But not in that order.

I hadn't heard since his scrotum was burned off
during my experiment with fluorine gas last year."
