I once tripped balls on shrooms and then fell asleep, thinking they'd worn off and awoke feeling like I was in jello -- so much so that I rushed to turn the light on -- only to find everything on the bed quite dry.

I was on mushrooms once and the lower half of my body felt warm, so I spent the better part of the trip wondering if I had shiat my pants. I kept feeling the back of my pants to see if it was squishy, but I never once thought it may be a good idea to pull out my colon to make sure it was still full.

so meth, heroin and crack are all good then?

have you done any Psychedelics? they are very mind expanding

Yup. It's why I bowed out of the conversation early on. It's almost impossible to explain what it's like to someone who's never experienced it, and trying is frustrating for both people. Better to just acknowledge that you're not going to be able to adequately explain it and leave it there.


I don't understand why people are attracted to things that they don't agree with, and then waste time attacking those opinions. Mind-boggling. lol. I've never spoken German before, but I'm pretty sure you're speaking it wrong... ;P

My ex also had this argument. He is 30 yrs old, broke and just moved out of his father's basement to now live in his mom's. But he sure has some good acid stories!

You blame the drugs for this? I do more drugs than anyone I know (24/7 herb, literally) and I pull 6 figs as a senior .NET developer and am on track to be the youngest manager in our dept. Sounds like you shouldn't hang out with losers.

I've never had a bad trip on shrooms when I trip alone. All of my bad trips (if you trip often enough and long enough, you will find that abyss) happened while being around other people. Having a sitter is great in theory. However, in practice, it's a bit rare. It's cool that I have a GF that hates shrooms and will do the sitting, but she gets so worried if a trip goes south.

What this kid did, I completely understand. My creed used to be "go big or go home" and I would never trip on anything less than 5 grams. I still find 5 to be my sweet spot. However, when you get closer to 7 or 8 grams, you have no escape route if the change occurs. You just need to ride it out and try not to freak anyone out.

All that being said, I'm actively looking forward to tomorrow...

Sure it is always fun to be in a group as long as no one brings THAT guy. But it sounds like the kid in the story was THAT guy and the rest of the folks bailed on him. if you have ever been around a person who annoys the shiat out of you while using psychedelics it is really tough to deal with.

Always good to have a veteran team.

/i personally have tripped alone....its not that bad


Seriously. I always liked being in my own headspace when tripping, and sometimes having friends around made that impossible.

And some people seem to feel like they need to act in a certain way when tripping, like movies have pre-conditioned them to be all "oh man have you ever really looked at your hands"... Seriously annoying.

It's been a ages, not even sure where I'd get shrooms or blotter these days.

fusillade762: OOBE Juan Kenobi: Genevieve Marie: Gawdzila: tweek46420: have you done any Psychedelics? they are very mind expanding

"Mind expanding" my arse, they just give you a temporary case of synesthesia.

I'm going to go ahead and strongly disagree and also suggest you maybe listen to a couple of Terrence McKenna lectures.

:)

It's impossible to explain psychedelics to someone that has never taken them before. :)

McKenna and Joe Rogan talk extensively about going to other dimensions of reality on DMT. Pretty wild stuff.

I actually got the chance to see him speak live at a thing in San Francisco (with Spacetime Continuum and a didgeridoo player). Kinda half speech, half rave. Pretty cool. Glad I got to before he died. They actually taped it and I have a VHS copy somewhere. It's on YouTube, too.

Alien Dreamtime



Nice. That reminds me of when I kidnapped Dennis McKenna, Terrence's older brother, while in Peru. As a birthday present for myself, we took him to an abandoned research facility next to an orchid sanctuary and then down the road to hell to hunt for mushrooms, quite successfully. Then we threw a glowstick rave at the martian shaman's jungle retreat center as a protest against the last day of his grand opening.

Good times.

Too bad we lost Dennis' mushroom hat. He had spores from dozens of species imprinted in that thing. Now its floating around the headwaters to the amazon in Mother of God Peru...

Unless you know something about him that's not from the article, I don't see how you can make that judgement. It's commonly known and accepted that people can do crazy ass crap for bizarre reasons while on acid or shrooms, which is why you don't leave them alone.

So no, he probably wouldn't have eventually almost killed himself if he wasn't tripping on mushrooms.

Those are some seriously shiatty friends.

That bothered me. I wonder how it went down. Like, "OK man...like...we gotta go." or were they already planning to leave, or did something happen and they wanted to do something he didn't want to do. So many questions.


my guess is they were like this is lame sitting here in a house....lets go for a walk or something and he was tired (mushrooms do that sometimes) and he didn't want to go, so they bounce out and Nancy McShootmyselfinthehead went full r tard
