    Today, in 1943, Swiss chemist Albert Hoffman deliberately ingested the chemical he created, LSD, and went for a bike ride.

    "...affected by a remarkable restlessness, combined with a slight dizziness. At home I lay down and sank into a not unpleasant intoxicated-like condition, characterized by an extremely stimulated imagination. In a dreamlike state, with eyes closed (I found the daylight to be unpleasantly glaring), I perceived an uninterrupted stream of fantastic pictures, extraordinary shapes with intense, kaleidoscopic play of colors. After some two hours this condition faded away."

    I bet this is about the only drug where someone could claim to be the first person to ever ingest it.

    THE best LSD I ever did were these little black pyramids. My boy had a hook up out of Chicago and had TONS of them. Best stuff ever.
