BlorfMaster: mofomisfit: goochmeister42: BlorfMaster: 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.

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?

Because people on hallucinogens love to eat oranges or orange juice. When I was doin the drugs, people would say that the vitamin c would make you trip harder. My theory is that oranges and orange juice, with their tangy and sweet flavor, are freaking delicious when you're tripping, and the vitamin c thing is just a kind of "drug urban legend" that gets passed around with it.

Hrm, not really.

Not oranges, but grapefruit and fresh grapefruit juice cause certain drugs to stay in your system longer due to some enzyme keeping the liver from breaking it down out of the blood stream.

Some people on certain medications like blood pressure pills are told not to drink grapefruit juice because of this.


I believe that as much as I believe the "vitamin c" explanations - but unless someone bestows some clean liquid acid on me it doesn't really matter much anymore anyway.

I Said: Occam's Chainsaw: DjangoStonereaver: I never ate 'shrooms, but I had friends who did, and they always
complained about the stomach cramps afterwards.

A shroom trip is basically applied food poisoning. Your stomach is supposed to be pist off.

And it's just. . .just great.


THIS.

I am curious though... all night, I felt as if someone suddenly removed the floor just beneath my heels... all of my buddies experienced the same thing... I wonder why that was?

I hate being old and never finding any good drugs. The weirdest trip I ever had was at Universal Studios in FL. The tourists were hilarious and horrifying.

Meh...
I used to hang out with 2 LSD dealers. They took it so much that they built up severe tolerances to it. I've literally seen a guy bite into a sheet of of acid and eat it all. He didn't die.

2009-06-12 10:50:23 AM  

MessyDwarf: Every year, after the Bonnaroo is over, they route the leaving Hippies 20 miles south of closest freeway exit at Murfreesburo. There is a line of cops waiting at the edge of town just daring any of them to make that left turn into their domain.

The cops in the Bonnaroo look at the Hippies with barely contained disgust, like they would shoot off their shotgun into the nearest crowd, just to see how many Hippies they could nail.

The Bonnaroo is a excellent party, but Tennessee is brutal.


Oh the mounted patrol officers letting their horses crap just about everywhere...that was great. Then the rain set in and I couldn't tell what was mud or horse poop. Double awesome.

I actually called the MPD and left a message on Kyle Evan's voicemail (he's the guy who made that outrageous quote).

RantCasey: I used to love a good trip every now and then but once you have a bad one you can never go back. I wrapped myself up in blankets and sat on my couch for 3 hours constantly changing the channels in fear that if I stopped changing the channels something bad would happen. I thought my head was going to explode when my roommate made me leave it on The Fresh Prince of Bel Air for 2 minutes.

AAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!



Try watching the music video for "OPP". Not a good idea!
As I recall, it went like this: "Why are all these people so angry with me? OMG you guys, I gotta go, I've come down with a case of OPP!!"

SnakeLee: We used to have only two rules: the one about cars, and we'd always make sure to bring a handle of some really hard alcohol, so if we bad tripped we could just drink a bunch really fast and black out.


Never heard that, though in one of my experiences I remember drinking beer kinda killed my shroom buzz.

Many moons ago when I was just out of high school, I discovered that the more mushrooms you eat, the more tequila you can drink. Strangely, this was followed by discovering that the more tequila you drink, the more mushrooms you can eat!

What a crazy weekend... and I still can't drink tequila.

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.


I have a problem with that. 'Shrooms, not so much.

Went to the first 2 Bonnaroos had a grand time. Good friends went went to the third one and said it sucked and never went back.

Only time I ever got sick off of shrooms was when I had ate them in a chocolate, it was actually like a peppermint patty. Disgusting. The tea method works the best.

works the same for Mescalin and peyote. In college a friend drank 26 beers. I can still remember him and the exact moment the micros wore off, he was falling face first at the floor, drunk as hell..

no one has mentioned that, barring an allergic reaction or stupid behavior it is not possible to OD on psilicybin mushrooms, seriously. the effects are not due to poisoning your system you'd have to eat half your body weight to kill yer ass. look that shiat up.

I've done mushrooms before and they were fun. The last time I did them, I had a bad trip.

It was the worst day of my life and I'll never do them again. Even though nothing was wrong, just the feeling was so bad, I'll never do them again.

Wow, by that logic, bars and nightclubs used to be cool until I turned 30 then all of the sudden they weren't cool anymore. We should shut them down now that I dont want to go.


No, I agree with jonasborg. It has very little to do with age; being in my late 20s, I still enjoy going to music festivals. Bonnaroo just isn't as fun as it used to be. I think diversifying the type of music is partially to blame. Food and drink prices in the venue have gotten absurd. Concert-goers have become bigger assholes. The first years, the only noise I heard late-night was talking, music and nitrous tanks filling balloons. The last year I went, some jackass set up mortar fireworks directly outside my tent at 4 AM. Somebody stole the poles holding my tarp up. Somebody went into my tent's vestibule and took half my beer. fark that place, at almost $300 a ticket and an 18 hour drive I don't want to put up the kind of shiat I had to last time.

Does anybody else remember being told in highschool that you could die the first time you took Ecstasy from overhydration? They told my highschool health ed class that Ecstasy gives you a "false sense of thirst" and you keep drinking until you drink yourself into an overhydration coma and die.

Anyone know if this is true? Anyone else told this as a teen?

Fresh shrooms don't taste bad, tastes like lettuce if they weren't grown on dung.

I once watched a movie with Dustin Hoffman in it while mildly tripping. Now I'm obsessed with his nose. It looked about 10 times bigger at the time.

Then I wrote an email to a psych professor of mine thinking I had some amazing insight on human behavior. It was embarrassing the next morning having to explain why he got such an odd email. He just thought it was funny.

The idea that tripping on Ms is some how related to food-poisoning is simply false.

Strain plays a role in the nature of the high but is isn't the only factor. An earlier poster mentioned some cubensis types. There is a strain of small ones purportedly developed by McKenna, that provide a strong, introspective ride, their name escapes me. . .

Other factors come into play as well. There can be great variation M-to-M. Addition of minor nutrients seems to make for a potent and well-rounded M-buddy. Of course, gypsum makes for an M with a good physical structure. The cell walls of an M are chitinous, and benefit from calcium.
