              Any acid user knows how crazy an idea this is. The last thing you'd want to do during a trip is perform in front of an audience.

                  its actually do-able, you just have to time it correctly, you can't act while you're peaking but the first 2 hours on acid you ain't really whizzing off your tits, if you time it to where you start peaking right where you end working then its do-able. Advisable? No...but definitely do-able.

                              Really, the Kimmel writers could not even consult the wiki article about this incredible actor before they had Kimmel ask "Did you study acting or are you just natural?" D'uh.

                                              Samuel is a legend man I’ll never forget watching Pulp Fiction when I was like 11/12, to have a stand out performance in a film that had a lot of great actors who put in good performances shows his class

                                                Blotter usually takes an hour or so to start up. Several decades ago, my girlfriend and I took 2 hits apiece before sitting down to dinner with her parents thinking we had plenty of time. After about 15 minutes we started hallucinating. We excused ourselves and ran.

                                                      Shrooms make me feel like I'm strapped to a rocketship and just along for the ride, LSD feels like I'm in the control room. The difference is arguably small yet relative. For anxiety purposes, I prefer LSD
