Just saw a story about Rich on my Yahoo news feed titled: What happened to Rich Piana? From International Business Times.

"Alright I'll help - on one condition..."

It's both, accidental and purposeful.  Mostly accidental, as drug dealers don't want to kill off their customers as it would be counter productive for business.  When done purposeful, Fentanyl is cut into cocaine and MDMA and other drugs in very miniscule amounts (few hundred micrograms - the weight of a single grain of salt) because it's dirt cheap and a little goes a long long way in increasing the potency of the recreational drugs. When cut properly, it's more cost effective than it would be to increase the purity of the cocaine. Fentanyl is what killed Prince.

I hadn't realised this about Prince - thanks.  And one has to wonder at the ability of the average UGL to adulterate powders to that degree of accuracy, surely?

A kilogram will produce a half a million doses.  It's dirty bomb dangerous

Yikes!  Shocked

So with this in mind (and I know it's a terribly ghoulish thing to speculate) one possible scenario of what happened could go something like:

> Rich is chilling with a few lines of "good sh1t" Monday night and getting his hair styled
> Accidentally ingests a couple grains worth of this stuff
> Sudden syncope
> Straight down and strikes head on tiled floor (causing sub-dural haematoma?)
> CPR until paramedics arrive
> Coma induced at hospital

So what's next?  If it was a haematoma might surgery be indicated?  Or if this Fentanyl sh1t is involved, perhaps the head-strike is a red herring and the drug actually stopped his heart?

This thread needs more wild speculation, spurious logic and broscience!

Agreed.  Just not enough in this thread. It's almost like the tragedy has made a lot of posters act with a modicum of decorum... who'd a thunk it?

Just strange with Rich being so open about his health on YouTube

That they are being so shit in about it -  either hardcore drugs are involved or his has some serious brain damage at this point , from fall or hypoxia


Just seems like by now , almost 6 days , we'd have us a thumbs up from a hospital bed or a pic with that crew that looks like they work the concession stand at Thunderdome


Just speculating and all the best to big diesel , does a lot for bid dudes and he's a nice guy

BUT - dudes shares info like a school girl and his social media had gone silent even before this , with the lumpy shoulder pic and his wife made that IG post about no more updates ? Why tho ?

It's getting out of hand in British Columbia.  Averaging 4.5 deaths per day at one point.  On pace for 1400 deaths this year, and it's not a large province. Just 4.5 million people, compared to 49 million people in California.  You get a single granule of fentanyl in your line of blow, and you'll think it's the best blow you've ever had.  You get several granules in your line of blow, and you won't be thinking anything, as you'll likely be dead.  That's the margin of error with fentanyl.  And Carfentanil is 100 times more powerful than fentanyl.

That's a shit ton of people when you've got to reckon that the majority of the users are in a narrow band of 18-35 year old party types. The Vancouver scene must have had a lot of problems.

The whole story sounds strange. He is getting his hair cut at home, and snoring some lines in between? Then he collapses and his head hits the toilet?
I have a hard time believing this nonsense.

He was scared and concerned for his health. His just rice diet and 240lbs bodyweight goal means the obvious.

People pass out all the time for various reasons, how you land and what you land on may also further injurer a person in addition to the reason why they are passing out. I know an old man that passed out due to a heart condition, but also ended up fracturing his hip and breaking a leg. Piana may have od'd on something, but a 280 pound dude collapsing can definitely cause severe trauma, especially if he landed on his head.

You use rec drugs (obviously bought from a dealer), you risk lots. And if you croak, well, you get what you get.

Fools dying is never a negative.

Love your posts - especially about the good old days at MuscleMag, but I have to disagree with you here.  I had a Percocet prescription once, and it was the most amazing substance I ever did in my life.  To kick back with a Percocet from time to time is not irresponsible, and the most toxic component in it would be the Tylenol.  My point is - these are not the drug users anyone should be happy to see dying.  It's one thing when people who take 10 Oxycontin 80 pills daily eventually die due to central nervous system suppression, but people simply doing a line of coke?  Or taking a small quantity of Oxycontin that is actually comprised of Fentanyl, or even worse - Carfentanyl?  I'm sorry, but that's horrible.  That is equivalent to poisoning people, basically.

One mistake some users of opiates do is do a lot of it over the period of several months - then do the amount they once could handle, only to realize that their former tolerance is currently not as high.  And they die, or risk overdose.

In any case, I think there is a difference between a long-term junkie dying vs. a normal weekend warrior who got a contaminated batch.

i can think of a lot of people doing drugs that i rather not have dying on us.

but then im a lover of music, unlike fortress.

Same here.  I love Fortress' posts, but in this case, I would ratherloveyours.

I assume if there was zero brain function, they would have already suggested to pull the plug.  Perhaps there is a little glimmer of hope left...Gotta confuse the doctors, right, babe?

For whatever it's worth, Gregg Valentino said he spoke to people very close to Rich said he's fine and doing better than doctors initially expected.

So he's out the coma? I highly doubt rich would let people think he was still under... "godammit I was in a coma but I was like fuck that"

So they brought him out of the coma on friday, checked his mobillity, said he was doing better than expected, but put him back under to give his brain more time to heal.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZmLMAC5OQI&ab_channel=MuscleSportTV

Says that the toxicology report show no sign of drugs and the MRI shows no problems so they're trying to 'figure out" whats wrong with him.

GIven that they found white powder and that they wouldnt put him in an induced coma unless something was very wrong, I sense at least some of this is PR spin. I really cant imagine a Doctor saying "we're not sure what's wrong with you so we're gonna put you in an induced coma and go from there"

"MRI showed nothing wrong with the brain but they put him under to let the swelling subside from the brain trauma"

"Brain trauma" and "nothing wrong"  Huh Roll Eyes

Toxicology report showed no drugs my ass. Maybe no opiates specifically but I'm sure there were plenty of drugs. Maybe they hit him with Narcan and then found their hunch was incorrect so the tox report was "clean" for that class of drugs.

Surprised he didn't say Rich was also steroid free.

So there is a lot of attention whores of the internet telling their assumptions as a facts? In the real life, would you get anybody's toxicology report to see when you go and just ask for it? I don't think so..
