Inventor of LSD dead

Postby Jeremy_I_Am on Sat May 03, 2008 11:35 am

Dr. Albert Hoffmann, the Swiss organic chemist who first isolated lysergic acid diethylamine [LSD] in 1947, has died.

Here's the thing: he was 102 years old.

So I'm thinking, does dropping acid make you live longer?
And there you have it.

Depends if you're a rock star or a scientist, I guess.

If you're a scientist, dropping acid usually gets you fired.

If LSD was invented in 1947 by a scientist who has died at 102, then perhaps he had also concocted a means to use it for healthy benefits? And that the rest of the ignorant world had been using LSD incorrectly for a euphoric need/desire?

I'm waiting for trioxin to be legal so I can extend my life indefinitely. Jesus used trioxin and it saved his life.
