Bicycle Day

"By now it was already clear to me that LSD had been the cause of the remarkable experience of the previous Friday, for the altered perceptions were of the same type as before, only much more intense. I had to struggle to speak intelligibly.

"I asked my laboratory assistant, who was informed of the self-experiment, to escort me home. We went by bicycle, no automobile being available because of wartime restrictions on their use. On the way home, my condition began to assume threatening forms.

"Everything in my field of vision wavered and was distorted as if seen in a curved mirror. I also had the sensation of being unable to move from the spot. Nevertheless, my assistant later told me we had traveled very rapidly."

~~Hoffman, on April 19, 1943

Just stopping by after seeing your comment on my blog. You know--I wondered that too--why WOULD anyone want to curl their eyelashes--in that manner anyways? Talk about too big a tool for the job.
Thanx for stopping by--always fun to meet new people!

Great video, I never understand people riding with 2 !

Glynis, people who rides two bikes at one time are very brave, very stupid, very skilled, very stoned,

or all of the above. :-)

Riding under the influence is difficult; the result is skinned kness. (from experience). Interesting way to park these bikes, they may need a ladder. ;)

video and tune was cool. I've done that a few times; ride one bike and deliver the other to a friend. Think I'll take my bike for a spin later on, I have that tune in my head.
