mrtron: Dude its not fraudulent advice. Obviously the first few times do it somewhere you are comfortable...and gain a sense of what it is like.

I think some of my best trips were out in public among the non-trippers. You have to be very secure in your ability to hold it together.

Of course we are talking shrooms so it should be easy for a n00b to pull off. Such a happy buzz!

olddeegee: In high school, in the '70s, I used hallucinogens often. I was failing in U.S. economics class. Then I came into some nice acid. I passed all of my government classes with a "B" or better. I still believe, that to understand the USA, it's really best done on acid.

Yeah but when you come off it and realize that you just blew some dude who you only know by the name of "chewy" to get your fix. You have to rethink some things.

Mrstupid7: The best mushroom trip I had was also the worst. I could not see anything past about ten feet because of the hallucinations and everywhere I saw the cheshire cat. My girlfriend said I spent about an hour laughing , screaming, and crying on the bed after a whippit (she was trippin to so it was probably about 10 minutes). Apparently I kept muttering something about letting the cat out of the bag and my only coherent memory was staring at everything and watching the cheshire cat's face morph out of it and start laughing at me and all I could do was laugh until the world was pure fractal colors. I distinctly remember looking at black bag that turned into the cat's face that had a bunch of people farking all over it. Thousands and thousands of people doing anything and everything imaginable to each other in a cosmic orgy.

My first trip I started incessantly mooing like a cow because of some perceived connection between cattle and the human species. It made sense at the time and was utterly hilarious to me.

/I moo really well

I just came here to say this: I farkING LOVE MUSHROOMS. They are so beautiful, they are pure happiness in fungal form. Its a bit sad that I've never felt such unrestrained joy naturally in my life, but at least I felt it a few times in 6-8 hour doses.

Now that I'm out of college and don't know anyone who sells drugs anymore, I'm afraid to say I may never trip again :(

I think a lot of people just don't have the capacity for it, being that functional. I can get some of my "milder" friends to try mushrooms here or there, but I have to be careful with them, where I take them. shiat can go bad in a flash.

Fight over hallucinogenic mushrooms money ends in murder charges
 
2008-03-31 04:50:52 PM  
A nice mellow trip

Ingredients:

1 - Old fashioned heavy window shades
2 - Various colors of "Neon" colored model paint
3 - plenty of blacklight bulbs or blacklights
4 - old ballpoint pen
5 - plenty of trip

Lower the shade all the way. Take the hollow shell from a ballpoint pen, suck a little paint into the tube, flick it onto the back of the shade alternating random colors and amounts of paint.

At night, drop or eat whatever trip you have. Wait 20 minutes (or more for shrooms possibly) Whenever the trip gets rolling, head into the room with the shade. Pull down the shade all the way. Close all of the doors . Turn off all regular light. Turn on the black lights. Turn on whatever tunes you are in the mood for. By all means, If you have one of those "portable laser light show" things, NOW would be the time to use it!

Roll up shade to conceal all paint as needed. Tell anyone who asks that the blacklights are for that cool Floyd poster.

ENJOY

AnxietyDisorder: My cat ate some shrooms that my ex had found once. Bad news.

Imagine that, mother natures defense worked...bet the cat didn't make that mistake again.

watox: I think some of my best trips were out in public among the non-trippers. You have to be very secure in your ability to hold it together.

oh man, I was walking back from a group of friends tripping back to my house from the middle of campus. I run into a girl I know who *seemed* upset. She kept trying to talk to me, and I finally just told her "Look really want to help you, but I'm totally faced right now and I can't understand your face, sorry"

Also once in Music Midtown in atlanta (2003? maybe) it was the second day of the fest, and i was about 20 "rows" from the main stage with about 495,000 of my closest friends behind me. three of the 8 of us were tripping. My friend started talking to some hot chick and was possibly getting somewhere, but I had it in my head that her huge boyfriend would be right back and proceed to start fighting, which would not go well. I pleaded with my buddy to stop for the sake of fun. He did after a while, but when i sobered up he told me that there was no boyfriend, and that the next time i cock block him, he won't be as nice.

In public is fun, you just have to remember your on things and that you may not be seeing the same world as everyone else.

AlwaysRightBoy: Safe place.......eh I've ended up in a closet for about ten hours a couple of times....whoa

I was cornered under a kitchen table by a house cat for 45 minutes while on acid... terrifying experience, so much for being in a 'safe place'.

All you pro-Oaxanqueros - You've finally giving me a valid excuse to go visit my in laws now... 8 years searching for a reason, it comes down to a fungus.

mrtron: So I am not alone then!

Not alone. But people REALLY need to be careful.

I had a buddy who went batshiat thinking the cops were onto him on the beach. He started running off, no money nothing but his shorts. We had to catch up to him and really work our asses off to convince him things were cool. Can't exactly tackle a guy having a bad trip. Things can get very out of hand very fast!

Good times!

A small suggestion...the best thing to do with mushrooms:

Get Mushrooms.
Get Liquid Methenol.

You will need a filter, a glass plate (like the kind you make lassagna in), something to finely chop the mushrooms (coffee grinders are best)...and something to dry out the mushrooms (food dehydrator is best).

Dry the mushrooms. Chop them up. Scoop the mushroom powder into the filter (don't touch it). Place the filter over the glass plate and pour the methenol into it. The methenol will evaporate (quickly) and what you will be left with is stuff that looks exactly like a tootsie roll. Take a razor blade or some kind of spatula and scoop up all the "tootsie roll" residue.

Use about 1 gram and plan to have 6 or 8 hours free....

KJM315: In public is fun, you just have to remember your on things and that you may not be seeing the same world as everyone else.

That is indeed the key!!!

Some people aren't objective enough about what "filters" they are putting on the world when sober. They have no shot when tripping.

You have to ride the wave.

And under NO circumstances should you ever trip if you aren't 100% sure you want to. Do not get pushed into it!!!

Copy that. Oaxaca is absolutely beautiful. While there might be some internal Mexican politics that are causing problems, the locals wouldn't hurt a fly. The capital city is absolutely gorgeous, and the food is incredible. Had a little indian woman sell me a bag of dried termites for about 50 cents. Turned out to be not bad. The native culture is all sorts of caught up in hallucinogenics. I'm pretty sure I recall that the Central American Indians used to go for mushroom and hallucinogenic bark enemas, rather than eating them. Worked quicker that way. Too lazy to google it right now.

Next time bring some catnip and the both of you could trip together.

I think the best movie to see while tripping is "Angel Heart."

Oh yeah, these stories reminded me of an instance years ago when I took a heroic dose with a friend and had his girlfriend (now his wife) taxi us around to bars, parties, etc. I recall being at this house party for a while and ending up standing in the kitchen alone with some girl that my memory tells me was fairly attractive, tall, and dark with all the right curves. To my horror, while she was talking to me I realized that she might as well have been speaking martian, so I think I told her something like, "I'm sorry, but I'm having a hard time with conversation right now," but I'm not completely sure.

She nodded and walked away, leaving me alone in the kitchen. I console myself by believing that she wasn't as great as I remember. If she did look like I remember, than I probably wouldn't have been able to talk to her sober either.
