Vaped a bunch of those synthetic cannaboids that are all over the news, and was thoroughly disappointed.  It did the job to a certain extent, but it tasted like burnt plastic and only lasted for an hour or so.

Then again, there's something nice about just being able to go online and place an order for a quarter to be mailed to my front door for a reasonable price instead of either buying from people who are trying too hard not to be sketch in a wal-mart parking lot or ordering a lot of really expensive pizza deliveries.

bulleit has the best flavour for its comparatively low price. it's actually one of my favourite mass-market bourbons for that reason.

my shelf currently has a bottle of jack's single barrel and booker's kentucky straight so im in a good whiskey place atm

I love Bulleit, though it's not as readily stocked as Jack...

Speaking of, I've got one of those post-drinking body-and-mind aches going on + the kitchen is too far away so I have opened a can of pre-mixed Jack + coke which I am now drinking. Clearly, drunk me thought that this was a more suitable thing to leave next to my bed than, say, a glass of water. Drunk me has no standards,

Hungover me is not so impressed by drunk me.

Out of curiosity, why lagers and not ales? I only ask because my personal preference is for the former, the latter generally being the choice of schlock brewers. Of course, there are dozens and dozens of excellent lagers but you have to wade through more mainstream, low rent brews than you would with ales in a quest to try lots of them. Unless you're ignoring those and only going for the good stuff?

We did talk about doing ales as well, as I love them and have already had quite a few. We also live in the hometown of the Campaign For Real Ale, so I imagine we will move onto ales at some point. However, in the interests of making it slightly more manageable, we're sticking with lagers for the moment. The other good thing about this plan is I've already had most of the mainstream crap (aside from the american mainstream crap which I'm not particularly looking forward too) so now I'm onto the more obscure, imported stuff which on the whole are delicious.

Word of warning: you will not trip as hard as you would otherwise, given that you took acid 3-4 days ago.  You need to wait a week before tolerance fully returns (LSD and psilocybin are active on the same receptors so they're cross-tolerant to some degree).  You'll still trip, but maybe not quite as hard.

oh wow, i didn't know tolerance for both were related. oh well, the dude who was supposed to get them for me fell through cause he sucks, so i guess that was for the best.

::shrug:: You'll still get plenty of effects.  At 4-5 days the difference should be pretty negligible, especially if you're not a heavy user of traditional psychedelics (read: 4+ trips/month).

terrible panic attacks

Yea, I know, I did all the research, and went for the compound (JWH-250) that didn't have increased anxiety as a side effect.  Problem is that it's gone before you even really notice it, so you're smoking more for the same high, and fuck it's an aromatic hydrocarbon which isn't exactly the best thing to smoke e'rry day.  But hell, you know, curiosity combined with being fucking dry right now got the best of me.

@jeans: I feel your pain.  Not because I'm in Norway, but because I'm in Pennsylvania, land of state-owned liquor stores. :(  $40-ish for a 750 of Johnny Black and it goes up from there.  Many times I've gone booze shopping while I was up in Boston and brought it back with me, because it was cheaper.

I checked the local prices. $73 from vinmonopolet (state owned alcohol sale) for that exact bottle. I couldn't find the one Jens was recommending, but the ten year comes at $87, so I guess you'll get up to $100 for the fifteen.

$100

(at flight tickets as low as $40 to London, Jens probably has a point - buying a bottle in UK is cheaper even if you include the ticket prices.).

These are very popular for people in the Military. I have yet to try them but almost everyone in my platoon has and swears by them. I think I'll just wait to get out and go back to the real thing.

Calling the cops is actually literally the worst possible idea when someone's having a bad trip, unless their "bad trip" consists of getting extremely physically violent and they have a deadly weapon close at hand and therefore must be quickly subdued by force.  They are effectively trained to make the situation strictly worse for everyone involved.

There are a bunch of factors that could've played a part in creating a difficult experience for your friend, but chances are he didn't take the "more potent part" or anything ... he's probably just not in a very good psychological spot right now in general, and mushrooms just put that fact under a microscope for him.  There are a few external factors (like medication) that could make a trip way more serious than it otherwise would be, but chances are that it was just all in his head.  He should've been given a comfortable room with pleasant music at low volume and enough time to figure it all out for himself, with a close friend to listen and hold space.  He would've probably had a great time once the peak passed.

Psychedelic first aid is easy unless the person has really serious and deep-seated issues to begin with.  It's not something you leave to law enforcement ... it's not something they even consider.

Oh dear god.  That is painful.  How do people get drunk in Norway?

They're like weed, only with a much shorter duration and missing something.  Not really worth it if you can get the real thing.  Also, you don't know what the fuck is in half the blends, and some of the SCs have very low thresholds for the nastier side effects, like panic attacks and whatnot.  If you're gonna do it, it's best to buy the raw chemical and make your own smoking blend with catnip or daminia or something.

yeah oww, as i discovered last night my roommate really isnt in that great of a psychological state, so im not letting him touch psychedelics until i know hes gotten his shit together. and i tried everything in my power to not have the cops come but i couldnt stop it, which freaked me out too. luckily, were all fine here now. im just confused as to how he tripped so hard, because i barely tripped at all. weird.

Drinking Glenfiddich 12 YO. Shit is so cash. Certainly not the best whisky I've ever had but for the price it's nigh on unbeatable. Asked my GF to pour me a finger and ended up with half a glass of it... Ah well. I'll sleep well tonight.
