Whenever I take LSD I know when it starts kicking in because I get this warm wet feeling on my crotch that spreads out and every single time I have to go to the bathroom and reassure myself that I didn't pee my pants. I know it's going to happen, but it feels so damn real every time.

Also it makes all my furniture look like it's smoldering. Faint smoke drifting off of the edges of everything.

The only time I took lsd, this weird dude with hair color that doesn't exist in nature said only he could save the world by draining some swamp somewhere and that he had a lot of green paper, but we should give him all our green paper anyway.
Would. Not. Do. Again. Zero stars.

I miss LSD, I had so much fun. But my head is too fragile now to risk it. Still do mushrooms once a year or so, they're pretty wonderful.

If I had to describe shrooms in one word, it would be "fun." They make you feel like a toddler. Everything you see is a new and amazing discovery. Definitely check out nature when you're on shrooms.

That looks like something pulled from a bathtub drain. But I can't stop looking at it.

CSB alert -

I've felt the same way for a very long time now. However, a couple weeks ago I was having some after work drinks at the local watering hole with a friend who is about 10 years younger than me and he asked if I'd ever heard of "microdosing". I said, "You mean being a pussy?". I scoffed but was mildly intrigued at the concept of taking a very small dose and seeing how it went. Later that evening, my neighbor approached my wife and I and asked of we'd like to do a little acid. They only had a tiny bit left. Stayed up all night having an absolute blast with a bunch of my friends and neighbors like it was 1990 all over again. I highly recommend it.

The one time I did LSD, the blotter took forever to kick in and I (very stupidly) took more before it had even started. Good visual hallucinations, but it was a very LONG night.

Shrooms are much better, imo. Same kind of experience (to me, tripping is tripping) but short enough duration that you can take them mid-morning and be back to baseline by late afternoon. Brevity is a very desirable quality in hallucinogens. I'd love to try 4-HO-DIPT for that very reason (2-3 hour duration).

I have actually been thinking about microdosing for depression. With mushrooms, though. Not even enough to give me a buzz, but enough for that feeling of well-being.

If I could only find someone I trusted to get it from, I'd love to give lsd another shot.

Although I don't really struggle with depression, I do have my fair share of anxieties. I was definitely more self confident and less anxious, socially, afterward. YMMV but I'd give it four stars on Yelp.

I couldn't deal with Trump on acid. I mean, Nixon was enough of an obvious used-car salesman that millions of tripping hippies were disgusted by his mere existence. I literally can't fathom how my brain would process the President on hallucinogenics.

4-AcO-DMT is also, from a duration perspective, a good fit here. Slightly longer from a duration perspective than the diisopropyl, but more predictable than shrooms since the alkaloid content varies from cultivar to cultivar and flush to flush.

The first time I saw Who Framed Roger Rabbit was on a double dose of acid. It was in a theater in Denver and I laughed and cried throughout the whole thing.

I didn't care what the kids and parents thought, I enjoyed the farm out of that movie.

I did the same thing with Evil Dead on VHS. It wasn't quite as funny or sad, but more Deadites coming out of the TV ala The Ring.

The first few times I did LSD I didn't drink because I thought it would turn the acid off. But after a few times I realized that four or five beers takes the edge off of it and makes it a lot more flowing. I'm an alcoholic though, I drink like eight beers a day. A regular person (not a Farker) would probably just need a couple beers

And thats the problem. I enjoyed Hoffman's book as well. Recipe is in it, but the lab equipment is the trick

Recently my friends and I dropped acid and watched Wizard People, Dear Reader (Brad Neely's narration of the first Harry Potter movie). None of us have ever laughed so hard in our lives. So you know what to do.

Yeah, I did that with the first Poltergeist. Not my most cunning plan.

Personally, that's more of an absinthe and weed kinda thing.

Now his Babycakes cartoons (And China IL)... now that's where you can use some LSD.

I've only done acid once in my life, but I planned out the entire day beforehand, brought in someone I could trust to stick around, and ended up permanently curing my anxiety.

Therefore, I should go to prison.

Disney's Fantasia

I have some in the fridge that I've been meaning to take all year.  A very light dose of LSD/mushrooms while snowboarding is freaking amazing, especially on a powder day, but I kept forgetting it.  It seems like it would be cool for some class 2- easy 3 whitewater but...that idea also kinda spooks me. I bet it would be awesome SUPing an alpine lake though, which is probably how it's going to go down this summer.
 
2017-04-17 11:29:28 PM  
Yeah I should have mentioned we were low-dosing the other night, I didn't even get visuals. Just full of energy and finding everything super interesting and hilarious.

The most mind blowing movie I've watched while tripping balls is The Fountain. I'll definitely have to put Fantasia on my list.
