Oh_Enough_Already: Occam's Chainsaw: Rev.K: Usually.

I've had a couple go bad, and that ain't fun.

I've had a few that devolved into a self-reinforcing spiral of shame / pain / depression, which I guess qualifies as bad. Nothing quite to the magnitude of Samurai Lincoln attempting to kill me and stuff my head full of parsley, though.

I've had the same experience drinking whiskey and listening to Phillip Glass albums over and over and over.

Yet, strangely, nobody has a problem with that.


Was it shame from listening to Philip Glass?

Apparently they had a huge thunderstorm yesterday and half the people's tents blew away.

My roommate left for Bonnaroo last night. I still want to kill him.

Santa's_Dog: Here's Tom with the weather...


Anyone see the recent Family Guy episode (rerun) where Quahog legalized marijuana? Tom Tucker was stoned on the air, and when Ollie Williams spoke, I can't remember what he said, it was one of the most hilarious Family Guy moments ever.

Because it's out in the middle of bum-fark Tennessee, mind you a very beautiful part of bum-fark Tennesse. If you scream, you'll only wake the cows.

People have a much higher chance of dying by eating a mushroom that's been mistaken as the edible variety. But as far as I know we don't have any ordinance against mushroom picking.

"Mushrooms are similar to LSD in the fact that they cause people to hallucinate, and like LSD a person can die the first time they use these poisonous mushrooms, especially in the condition that they were in here," said Murfreesboro police spokesman Kyle Evans.

Somebody has been reading too much Government propaganda....



Not really, you can die the first time you ride a bicycle too. And the first time you drive a car, and the first time you eat a peanut. And the second time, and the third time.

They just want to equate Musrooms with LSD, and put the fear of death into people as if it was something unique and especially associated with doing this particular thing.

No, you can die if you eat the wrong type of mushrooms. Better to legalize it so the market can be sure of what they're getting.

IME shrooms are highly unpredictable. Sometimes they're funny, sometimes they're trippy and on rare occasions they do tend to rip your stomach apart. I don't think I ever died from them though.


don't know why, but I'm lol-ing. Must be the boomers of old resettling in my spine. Thanks.

I once knew a kid who took LSD, and it screwed up his mind forever because he thought he was an Orange, and he would not let anyone touch him because he thought he would turn into orange juice. So he spent the rest of his days screaming 'im an orange!' while locked up in a mental hospital.

True story.

The first few years of Bonnaroo were terrific. About the 4th year it was really going downhill, and the 2006 was the last I went to.

I saw him try to pay for his Taco Bell with a $2 bill. They refused it because they thought it was fake, and he went ballistic. He just kept screaming "orange!"

When life turns you into an orange, make OJ.

I know a guy that took LSD and then solved an incredibly complex problem.

BOOOGAABOOOOGAAA!!!

I've never heard of college students, or former college students, using drugs. This is one enlightening investigation!

Hey, that's totally weird! I heard this story about this guy with a book of acid taped to his back and he got all sweaty and started tripping so hard he thought he was a glass of orange juice. They locked him up in a mental institution and he ended up dying after he fell over 'cause he thought he spilled so his heart stopped.

/i believed it when i was 15
//why is it always an orange?

DrunkenDeus: Today a young man on mushrooms realized that all matter is just energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.

My friend (who is a more experienced tripper than me) had 4 rules for tripping:
-You're not Jesus
-You can't fly
-Fire burns
-Cars can kill

also...

Its_A_Tarp: //just ensure you have a trip sitter


this.

/someone to keep you grounded in case of a bad trip
//and to curb the more stupid impulses - like trying to fly from the 10th storey

oh yeah?? me too..Except my friend wouldn't sit down because he thought he was a glass of OJ and didn't want to break and spill out. he'd eaten 60+ hits after breaking off a crystal of dehydrated LSD.

Where's the irony tag? You have a better chance of dying from walking down the street in Murfreesboro than you do from shrooms. You'd even be safer wrestling a bear.

"Short-Term Effects

* The effects of psilocybin can be felt in about 30 minutes, and usually last between three and six hours.
* The psilocybin in magic mushrooms changes the way you see, smell, hear, taste and touch (you might, for example, think you can "see" music, or "hear" colours). Your body may feel very heavy or very light. Some users feel as though they are having a magical or religious experience.
* Other effects can include: increased blood pressure and heartbeat, dizziness, light-headedness, upset stomach, numbness of the tongue and mouth, nausea, anxiety, and shivering.
* As is the case with other drugs, magic mushrooms affect each user differently. In addition to the size of the dose, effects are influenced by the setting, the user's expectations, past drug experience, and personality.
* Sometimes the effects can be overwhelming and frightening. This is known as a "bad trip." If someone is having a "bad trip," you can help by calmly reassuring them.

Long-Term Effects
There are no known deaths directly caused by overdose. For people with psychological problems, magic mushroom use can cause psychosis."
