Just in case no one believes us.

It was interesting the first time around...not so much the 5th or 6th.

Man, this is like day 135?
 
2013-07-02 09:41:31 AM
So what is The Chive anyway?  I've always wondered... but not strongly enough to go there and figure it out.
 
2013-07-02 09:41:38 AM
I don't even think it's interesting the first time. If he was trying to make the same picture each time it might be. I can't tell what the differences in the drugs are actually doing. I do not think that cocaine suddenly made him decide that he had spikes all over his dome.
 
2013-07-02 09:41:41 AM
this guy is from the town I live in. His spoken word stuff is pretty out there but this seems to be his claim to fame
 
2013-07-02 09:42:10 AM
Again?

And when I do the same thing as this guy it's a "crime" and I have to "surrender" my contraband. Jerks.
 
2013-07-02 09:42:25 AM
I take a different drug and read this everyday on Fark.
 
2013-07-02 09:42:42 AM
Um, Cephalexin is an antibiotic, not sure why it would distort his perception so much unless he was just faking them all.

This is just Fark's random drug test of the week to see which ones are working for people with attention deficit issues.

i cant even think of 45 different drugs i would use...unless you count different brands of beer.
 
2013-07-02 09:43:33 AM
He did it again?

Damn this dude does a lot of drugs
 
2013-07-02 09:43:39 AM
My guess is that the guy is full of sh*t and didn't imbibe on anything but the smell of his own farts the whole time.
 
2013-07-02 09:43:49 AM
I didn't see this before. But I'm more curious as to what each of the 45 drugs were. I don't know that I could think of that many.

wellbutrin, zoloft, prozac, etc..

*shrug* New to me. Had to laugh at the paperclip (making note of that for the future when I have teenagers).

I'm calling bullshiat on the whole thing.

One dose of any of those wouldn't change a thing.

How many time has he done this now?  I think he just likes having an excuse to take drugs.

Dumb idea. And I thought he'd be attempting the same picture each time to study perceptual/motor differences, not just "the first thing that came to mind." You know, the difference between "and this is how my signature looks written with my left hand" and "this is what Ra-el's sister's brother-in-law dictated that day."
 
2013-07-02 09:56:12 AM
This guy really needs to come up with a new shtick.
 
2013-07-02 09:57:15 AM
Most interesting drugs need a few days to flush out and get back to zero. Otherwise you're looking at secondary effects mixed with the new drug. So, I'd call BS if we weren't dealing with an "artist" and how short sighted those tend to be.

All the pot ones look like they didn't distort his mind in a negative way. Even the honey oil, which has doses that show chemical addiction and can be very dangerous, according to seminars I've attending with the DEA.

/I'm not with the DEA, but I do forensic toxicology work, so I attend different seminars and conventions.
//Not that I've looked, but I have yet to see research which backs up the DEA honey oil claim; so far, it has all been their personal experience with arresting drug users.
 
2013-07-02 09:59:33 AM
OK, but it would have been much better had he done this without knowing what he had taken.  Hard to do, yes. But it's for, you know, science.
 
2013-07-02 10:14:45 AM
Too bad he didn't attempt the *same* portrait every day therefore we can't really appreciate the difference.

Oh, and no way in hell did he draw that portrait or do much of anything creative on Salvia!

2012 was a good year

mgshamster: it has all been their personal experience with arresting drug users.


That tends to show positive bias to addiction. Any chance they had other drugs in their system as well? If you're going to do research on this, please make sure that question comes out of your mouth every time someone tries to make a statement like that about a drug. Almost always, you find out that there wasn't just one drug in their system. This is why, for instance, you'll never hear about a car accident and the person to blame was solely smoking pot; they always have another drug (usually alcohol) on board. It's also why I laugh my ass off every time someone tries to insist that Trayvon Martin would have been violent because he smokes pot.

mgshamster: All the pot ones look like they didn't distort his mind in a negative way.


That fits my experience. The only other substance I liked was Seroquel; I could actually hold a gun without collapsing in a fit of tears and running off to the other room just at the sight of it. Morphine is god awful.

I hear what you're saying.  Unfortunately, pot is not my area of expertise, and I don't do any real research with it (only reading the occasional scientific article or listening in on a professional talk).  My current research is with GHB.  And starting next Fall, I'll be switching fields from forensic tox to environmental tox (I was accepted into a PhD program, yay!).
