IF Drugs were legal and you had a time machine
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 10:35 PM by khephra
Who would you do drugs with and what drugs would you do?


(This is sort of like the Fight Club debate about "If you could fight anyone who ever lived, who would you fight?" I put the legal part in for those against illegal drugs...I figured everyone should be able to play "what if?" games.)

10. Out of a baloon, from a dentist's thingamajigee
While parked up the street from Valley High School. What can I say? We were trying to get laid.

The neighbors called the cops, but they couldn't figure out what we were on, so they let us go (this seems to have happened to me with some frequency).

28. How about pseudo-famous?
i was only claiming to be a recovering drug addict, not as someone who had done drugs with every single famous person in history.

But NO2? With somone famous? How about someone quasi-famous? How about this girl who starred in The Further Adventures of Pippi Longstocking? Yeah, that's right, I dropped acid with Pippi Longstocking. She was seventeen and totally freaking hot (and totally freaky). We had almost the same birthday, too, IIRC.

18. I had a friend who did tooooo much acid at a Zep show
(I think mixed with other shit...good reason to leagalize)

because she met Page once became convinced (while not on drugs) that Page was sending her sexual magic dreams.

12. Actually, it would be a gas to trip with Bush, too..
Let God really speak through him.

He'd probably get violent at first. But after the initial rush, it would be fun to goof on him. "I see Saddam in the rug!"

16. Probably not
I was reading a Leary book (IIRC) and they mentioned how they thought that turning on the Right-wingers would do them some good. Ends up they went from pot (which never seemed to have an effect on them) to worse drugs like heroin or coke.

29. I was only referring to dropping w/ the Shrub
"I SEE SADDAM IN THE RUG!!!"

That would be the greatest practical joke of all time.

33. Do you know the story of Ken Kesey?
he was a subject (victim) of the CIA's MK-Ultra program, poisoned with LSD while he was working at a mental hospital. After that, he wrote One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test was written about him.

Even more than Leary or Hoffman, he was the father of the psychedelic movement.

..and point out that this is a hypothetical drug contest. As a teacher I could never endorse drugs (unless they were free).

37. I actually WAS backstage at Woodstock
lotta folks were tripping but I was too young

drank some wine though

and there were reefers everywhere...

I met Sly Stone


and actually said hi to Janis as she was walking from the helicopter to the stage

was in the photographer's frontstage perch for Canned Heat

(I found a press pass. I was fifteen. mostly i was hoping to meet chicks, though)

i think doing mescaline with einstein would probably be the most interesting - or maybe aldous huxley or carl sagan

maybe peyote with carlos castaneda

maybe shrooms with betty boop or marilyn monroe

46. Actually the whole thing was awesome
Edited on Tue Jul-20-04 09:25 AM by seventhson
backstage was kinda like being fenced in and unable to roam (which I did a lot of)

seeing Janis closeup and actually talking to her (though she was too amazed at the crowd to respond) was very cool

I would say Wavy Gravy's Hog Farm encampment and its free kitchen were the best (along with the skinny dipping)

it was like tripping (withour drugs) with half a million groovy people and having the biggies playing for you RIGHT THERE!

Santana was the best set IMHO altho crosby stills and nash kicked musical ass (I missed richie havens - who played first) because our fan belt broke. But the guy who fixed us told us the back way in otherwise we would have missed the whole shebang.

26. True...here's a secret...don't tell anyone else
I put that clause in to hook some of our non-drug users (past or present).

Did I just say that out loud?

24. Shrooms with John the Baptist N/T
Edited on Mon Jul-19-04 11:02 PM by teach1st
So many tripped out historical figures, so few drugs.

Edited for grammar, which seems stupid when you're tripping.

38. i guess anything with jesus or the buddha
maybe a joint with jesus or some opium - see him mellowed out might be nice (he seemed kinda stressed)

moses and muhammed or zoroaster and elijah/elias might work too

30. So the question is
if you could show one person the wonderful world of psychedelics and alter their perception--pardon the pun--of it, thereby preventing the creation of the tight-ass anti-drug movement: Who would that person be? Hmm... ;)
