At least get the other per second in there if you aren't going to use SI units, subby.

No meth or alcohol involved.

Talk about a bad trip.

They strap you to a bed until you can convince them that you came down. So if you're ever busted while tripping, try to stay calm and don't tell the cops that you're on it.

Sadly 99.9% of medics and ER staff don't really know how to deal with hallucinogens.
That's not how to do it.

This.  I've dropped a lot of acid, really good stuff too, I was in control of my faculties 100% of the time.

I bet he just fell or was pushed/thrown.

Don't get me wrong, I did dumb shiat while tripping sometimes, but they were my own choice and I knew the risks while doing it.  I balanced those risks vs fun while tripping.

If he thought he could fly, he should have tried taking off from the ground first.

Well, it was per second squared, but after they hit the ground it was just seconds flat.

I had a kid get pretty hurt while I was really high, came back to earth in a heartbeat. Took care of business. Had the shakes later.

Here's one:
This happened to someone we know.
She was at an outdoor stadium Dead show years ago with friends, all tripping balls. I think it was one of her first times  since she was around 18.
She's wandering around the show trying to find her friends since they got separated at some point. She's sitting on a wall, several stories up with sidewalk below, wondering what to do.
She decides that she can go back in time and find her friends, so she closes her eyes and decides to fall backwards in time, over the edge.
Lands on the sidewalk, broke both legs and fractured her lower spine. I believe its fused now after multiple surgeries, obviouslybwalks funny. Lucky she lived.
Imagine tripping out, having a good time outside the show and someone kersplats in front of you on the sidewalk. Her parents got the call a day or two later after she could ID herself in the hospital, they were on vacation. Her friends had no clue where she went, thought she bailed or something.
Inexperienced acid tripper that didn't have a guide story.

50 years ago. Art Linkletter's daughter did the same thing but she died on impact. Building was higher than 3 floors by a lot, Lots of "Drugs can kill you" PSA's based on that one incident for year. Did acid myself in the '70's. Disneyland on purple barrel will hurt you from laughing so hard at tourists! (Sides, jaws ached like hell next day!) Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and Matterhorn rides an absolute blast!
 
2021-09-15 12:08:08 AM  
In the 90s, there was a point where if I hadn't done acid in a week, I said it had been a long time. Of course the tolerance on that stuff is pretty easy to achieve. You end up having to take 5-6 hits to get much of anything if you do it more than once a week. One time I got lost on a way to a discotheque that was less than 1/2 mile from my house that I'd been to countless times. Eventually I made it there and spent the rest of the night laughing my ass off.

That being said, no matter how much I took, I never got to the point where I thought I could fly, take a bullet, or do any other stupid superhero stuff.

I guess what I'm saying is, leave the hard drugs to the professionals. Some people just aren't built for chemically induced psychosis.

Yes, but if a three story building is roughly 32 feet tall, then it would by definiton take one second to fall, which leads to 32x12 = 32x1 = 32, meaning the person would be going...32 feet per second.

That would depend on if the 'hit' connected and how resistant to injury you were.

So are these guys big time dealers or more likely just a bunch of naive college students who found an LSD connection and didn't know how it would affect them?

The idea of charging someone for foolishly jumping or possibly even falling off a building while under the influence of drugs seems wrong.

No, after one second their SPEED would be 32 feet per second, not the distance traveled. Over the first second the average speed would be 16 ft/s, so in 1 second they've only gone half way.

Gravitational force between two objects is inversely square to the distance between. Technically, the higher you get the weaker the gravitational pull. So, hypothetically, mathematically, you can get high enough to fly.

This person just needed to be higher than they already were.

45 ft/second at impact apparently.
