Love Potion No. Nein

Attraction repellant
  (+8, -1)

  [vote for,

One dose and that person who shouldn't be attracted to you but is finds you instantly repulsive.

Could also work the other way. Slip it in the coffee of someone you can't get out of your head but should.

It only needs to last long enough for you to get out of the offenders sight. Also comes in an emergency handy purse pack just incase you run into them again unexpectedly.

Love Potion No. 9 (1991) http://us.imdb.com/Title?0102343
The movie that this would be a spin on. Presenting once again [sound of crank turning] Sandra Bullock as a geek who turns into a fox. [jutta, Sep 30 2001]

Love Potion Number Nine http://lyrics.coolf...cs/1965/131965.html
The song that the above movie would be based on. No Sandra Bullock, but it's got Madam Ruth. [PotatoStew, Sep 30 2001, last modified Oct 17 2004]

The Twilight Zone: The Chaser http://www.thetzsit...m/pages/chaser.html
Plot. [jutta, Sep 30 2001]


       does it come in factors e.g. potion zwolf, potion vierzehn, potion zwanzig   

       sighs, wish I had better German

       I think as with beauty...the beast is in the eye of the beholder. You would be as horrific as their imagination would allow.   

       I see no reason why it shouldn't come in Schokolade, Kaffe und der Kaese flavours. But of course a tasteless one would be required for slipping into drinks undetected.
Helium, Sep 30 2001

       Baked. Comes in various sizes, although it can't be easily slipped into drinks. Well, it can, but it won't be unobtrusive.   

       Pepper spray. One dose and they'll hate you for years.
StarChaser, Sep 30 2001

       Are you suggesting that if you find yourself unwillingly attracted to someone you should pepper spray yourself? Could work.
Helium, Sep 30 2001

       StarChaser: a similar effect can be achieved by donning your handy and portable Celine Dion baseball cap, without any temporary or permanent loss of sight. And if he/she says they like Celine too, rip the cap off your head and stuff it down their throat. There are times when subtlety is wasted.

       <grin> Well, I had actually thought of it as an anti-love potion in the sense that it gets rid of THEM, but the original idea was the other way around...Umm...I mean...well, yeah, if you hit yourself often enough you'll hate to see them...yeah, that's the ticket...that's what I meant. Anything else you might have read that says different is obviously a forgery.   

       <rereads original idea, and finds out he was right to begin with...> Hey! You were just trying to get me all confused! You're just jealous because the voices won't talk to YOU!   

       No, what I meant was if you pepper-sprayed someone every time you see them, pretty quickly you won't see them anymore. Of course, you might see cheap concrete walls, barred windows, and your new husband named Ben Dover, but...

       I can't really think of a reason why, to pick a random example, Elle MacPherson should be attracted to me but, if by some miracle she was (and that would be a fairly major miracle), I certainly wouldn't pepper spray her.
DrBob, Sep 30 2001

       //if by some miracle she was (and that would be a fairly major miracle), I certainly wouldn't pepper spray her.//   

       Probably that fear is all that has been holding her back. I'm sure you will be hearing from her in no time now that she knows she's safe from being pepper sprayed.
PotatoStew, Oct 01 2001

       Baked...in the Twilight Zone.   

       It's called the Glove Cleaner and can be found in episode #31, "The Chaser".
iuvare, Oct 01 2001

       Black permanent marker strategically applied to one or more of your most visible teeth should do the trick.
sdm, Oct 01 2001

       That's pretty scary UB. I'm sitting in an office in Lewes at this very instant.
DrBob, Oct 01 2001

       My friend's about to go on her elective (Medical Student) in Oz. If she's in Brisbane will you set her up with a date, UB?
lewisgirl, Oct 01 2001

       How would this antilove potion work? Does it adjust the pheremones in your body to make you repugnant to that one person? Its a great idea (one which I could use for that scary guy in my dorm...), but how do you know that it would work on just that one person and not the entire population?
moonsprite, Oct 01 2001

       If it only lasts a few minutes you'd have to try to time it for when nobody else can see you. But if the worst happens, true friends should still love you when you're ugly!
Helium, Oct 01 2001

       Very true, that. The idea certainly has merit.
moonsprite, Oct 01 2001

       When you guys figure out a way that this will work, I'll take a gross. No price could be too high.
Deity, Oct 02 2001

       Would it be counterproductive to think long and hard?
thumbwax, Oct 02 2001

       Aha, 'Stew! Just as I thought. And I've got the washing up all stacked up ready for her when she arrives.
DrBob, Oct 02 2001

       True friends will still love you when you're ugly --- but isn't the point of this idea that it stops people from loving you? Ugly or not?
wiml, Oct 11 2001

       Let your friends in on your little secret. Then at the weekend you could all take some potion and have your own little "Who Let The Dogs Out" party.
