National Geographic Puts LSD Under The Microscope

That's enough acid to send an army insane!

(Via Sitting Now), National Geographic’s Explorer series examines the myths and effects of LSD:

LSD’s inventor Albert Hofmann called it “medicine for the soul.” The Beatles wrote songs about it. Secret military mind control experiments exploited its hallucinogenic powers.

Outlawed in 1966, LSD became a street drug and developed a reputation as the dangerous toy of the counterculture, capable of inspiring either moments of genius, or a descent into madness.

Now science is taking a fresh look at LSD, including the first human trials in over 35 years. Using enhanced brain imaging, non-hallucinogenic versions of the drug and information from an underground network of test subjects who suffer from an agonizing condition for which there is no cure, researchers are finding that this “trippy” drug could become the pharmaceutical of the future.

Can it enhance our brain power, expand our creativity and cure disease?

Australian Human Rights Commission Attempts To Block Encylopedia Dramatica

...I know...

Brutal-Koala-Jedi-Action seemed relevant to this post

Ken Eakins writes on Sitting Now:

Here we go again …

The Australian Human Rights Commission has threatened legal action against a widely read but controversial US-based website over an article that encourages racial hatred against Aborigines.

But online rights group Electronic Frontiers Australia said trying to stamp out the deplorable content would only create the “Streisand” effect, whereby an attempt to censor online content only brings more attention to it.

The same page was in the news in January when, in a rare move, Google Australia agreed to remove links to the article from its search engine following legal action from Aboriginal man Steve Hodder-Watt.

Once again ED is attacked, and once again people miss the point of the site.

The Internet really is srs bsns.

4chan Being Blocked Again, This Time It’s Verizon

Ken Eakins writes via Sittingnow.co.uk:

DO WANT … on Verizon!

4chan site owner m00t has posted to the 4chan blog, and Twitter, that Verizon wireless, are blocking both in and outbound web-traffic to 4chan.

Unlike a recent scare involving AT&T last year, m00t believes that this time it’s for realsies, from the 4chan blog:

Over the past 72 hours, we’ve been receiving reports from Verizon Wireless customers having difficulty accessing the image boards. After investigating, we found that Verizon is dropping traffic to/from boards.4chan.org, only on port 80 (HTTP). No other subdomain/IP/port is affected, which leads us to believe this block is intentional. A call was placed to their support staff last night, and we were told that the ticket would not be looked at until Monday at the earliest, and: “You’ll need the customer to call to request it be unblocked…”

If you’ve been affected by this block, please contact Verizon Wireless customer support.

Ever Considered An Eyeball Tattoo?…Me Neither

"Urgh, last night was messy, I drank loads of wine, did a mountain of coke, and tattooed my eyeball."

"Urgh, last night was messy, I drank loads of wine, did a mountain of coke, and tattooed my eyeball."

Ok, so I can get my head around people inking their body, it’s a control thing, you are showing the world that you truly own your body. Although I am tattless, I can appreciate this concept.

What I can’t quite wrap my head around, however, is the need to tattoo your freaking EYEBALL!…yeah…I said EYEBALL!!

Why would you want to spend the rest of your time on earth looking like you had a really heavy night? Also, I don’t think these perps realise that if they rob a bank, mug someone, or basically commit any crime; identifying them will be reeeeallly easy. Dumbasses
