notauniquesnowflake: 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?


In the early 90s we were still getting stern warnings about the dangers of quaaludes.

I was never told this in like, health class, but when I went to raves it was one of the stupid things people would say.

The vigorous behavior and tight proximity to a f*ckton of people can cause you to overheat when on ecstasy, and you'll not notice until you're well past a danger level. Some people overcompensate and overhydrate, which can result in death (yes, you can drink enough water to kill you). So partially true. But no, no associated bottomless thirst.

6502programmer: We were talking with a Tennessee Highway Patrol officer who was directing traffic.

Ah Tennessee cops. Once, back in 1999 my brother and a friend and I went to see some movie in Hickory Hollow (this was before Murfreesboro was "cool"). On our way back home traffic was horrible around the former Starwood Amphitheater, and there were cops at each entrance directing traffic. Curious as to who was playing, as we pulled up to the first officer, our friend leaned out and asked "Who's playing today?"

First D'bag Officer: "Move along."

Okay... so we moved forward a bit, and still determined to figure it out, we asked the next cop, "Who's playing today."

Second Clueless Officer: "Dunno, a bunch of women."

With that cryptic bit of information we drove on, slightly dejected, and completely confused...

Until we got home and looked it up. Turns out it was the Lilith Fair.

Funny how it is so incredably easy to grow shrooms. I mean then even have mycobags now where you just order the "spores" already in a syringe(for testing of course) and squirt them into the mycobag. Throw bag in closet for a few weeks and you got mushrooms. Not as muhc of a yield as "mason Jar" method, but easy for the lazy. We use to eat them raw, then had so many we couldn't stand it. We mixed them with drinks. once again for a few months this worked fine until body couldn't stand it. BEst method was buying acheep pill press and empty capsul pills. grinding the hrooms up in a personal coffee grinder and pressing them into the capsuls. swallow with water. No bad taste, not trobule getting down, and they all release and get into your blood at the same time.

Never thought I was a pitcher of jouice about to tip over or anything. Just good mellow times, content with just "being" and enjoying the mysterious of the woods which I have never realised otherwise. What a facinating place the wilderness at night an be.

signaljammer: Also, you'll probably have a better experience if
// you are well-rested.


The only bad trip I ever experienced on shrooms is when I violated this rule.

Also, you're way less likely to experience stomach cramps if you make tea. You also don't have to pick the little bastards outta your teeth. One cool thing about shrooms is you have somewhat control over the intensity of the trip. Sometimes it's fun just to eat a pinch to put a spring in your step.

These days I'm old and don't know where to get them anymore. Some of the funnest days of life was being in my early 20's and eating a bunch of shrooms with friends at a concert or camping trip.

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.


LSD breaks down within about 20 minutes in your body. It can't stand heat and moisture. Within that time window, it triggers the conditions in your brain that will make you trip for hours, but the chemical itself is long gone by the time you are peaking. So I don't think your liver has anything to do with it, especially once the trip is already in progress. What I have heard about the vitamin C thing is that your body burns it all off when you're tripping, causing a deficiency. I know that when I have tripped, sometimes I've gotten a cold the very next day, as though my immune system had been weakened by the trip. Vitamin C is supposed to bolster your immune system. Seems to fit.

I wish I'd noticed this thread last night. I could have said that I was on mushrooms and I was getting a kick out of this thread. I was and, well... I was getting a kick out of everything.

Note to self: Fishing while tripping is actually a lot more entertaining than one might think.

lizyrd: amazing_live_seamonkeys: You mean you liked it when you were younger, but not so much when you got old?

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.

I do not know if this is the good thing because to me it seems like when you take the drugs from the people it just makes them look for more drugs and maybe even they look in dangerous places for drugs like from Mexico or The Republic of Texas. Do we as the society of humans really want this from our drug users? I know that some people who see the side of things as people on drugs are bad. These people do not see the smart side of things but see things from being mentally handicapped. I understand this because I know my roommate works with the slow people at the special classroom so it is not a good thing to be mean to slow people but when these people do make the laws for everyone it does cause me to have some fear. I am sorry if I anger you because you are a slow person but please just know that I think you are entitled to see things from your side but just do not make that side hurt my friends.

spentmiles: Saw Phish this past week, which exposed me to ultra-high levels of filthy hippieness. One of them bumped into me while going up the steps at the arena. He said, "Sorry bro!" Luckily I got a hold of his dreadlocks, swung him around over my head, and threw him onto the stage where Mike Gordon pulverized him with his bass. Mike gave me the thumbs up, which got me so excited that I launched into my trademark Roundhouse-Tornado. By the time I settled down, there was nothing left of those hippies except decayed teeth and broken shoelaces. Dirtbags.


Are you trippin' right now...?

signaljammer: 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.


Using nitrogen rich dung in your mix is supposed to increase the potency greatly, the issue is that finding the right mixture is much more difficult - if you sterilize too long you kill the nutrients, too short and you wont kill the bacteria. Its much harder to use dung. Plus mixing dung in a apartment setting is probably not the best idea.

As far as McKenna the name or variation that was done is PENIS ENVY. I am not sure if the pics are sfw so I wont risk it but, they truly do look like yangs - much more than normal mushrooms.

BOULDER -- Brittney Chambers died from drinking a massive amount of water to quench a thirst brought on by the drug Ecstasy, the Boulder County Coroner said Friday.

The Superior girl drank so much water it diluted her blood and caused her brain to swell, said Dr. John E. Meyer, the coroner. The swelling caused a coma that ended last week when the girl was removed from life support.

Meyer blamed the death on the $25 tablet Chambers was given as a birthday present."

Tripped 4 different times in my life.

1 Body only trip (didn't eat enough)
2 mind altering giggle trips - two of the best nights ever
1 bad trip where I figured everything out, and it wasn't good.

All in all mushrooms have been the closest thing to a religious experience I've ever had.
