Use your illusion.

Thanks Kat & Greg.

Quote of the Day:

If a man could pass through Paradise in a dream, and have a flower presented to him as a pledge that his soul had really been there, and if he found that flower in his hand when he awoke — Aye, and what then?

Samuel Taylor Coleridge, Anima Poetae

  1. Cowpies in paradise
    Re: Berlin museum offers night on magic mushroom.

    Psilocybin mushrooms and… a night at the museum? What a novel idea.

    Well, not really THAT new…

    (que: Harp music and fade-in to the mid-1970s)

    The magic ‘shrooms used to grow wild, so to speak, from cow pies that had been watered by the morning dew and then gently baked under a summer sunrise. You could almost watch them grow… in real time, literally speaking.

    Some folks had a tough time getting past the organics of it all, being how those little fungus spores grew through cow crap. Even with a good washing, they just could not bring themselves to ingest them in either cooked-liquid or dried-solid form.

    It was during the week of the US Bicentennial; July 4th 1976, that we perfected the technique of transferring the psilocybin mushroom extract into a sugar slurry and package it all in the empty capsules that could be openly purchased by the 100-lot from any drug store of the day.

    That was one helluva red, white and blue party… not to mention all the shades in between.

    As far as I am aware, we never broke any of the laws of the day in doing this… except maybe trespassing. In fact, we used to get chased off by farmers while shopping their cow fields but we never had a problem with law enforcement.

    It was a far different world…

    (We now return you to TDG… thank you for visiting My Fond Memories.)

      This made me laugh out loud after a hard day’s work, thanks mate!

  2. Missle system shutdown . . .
    I wondered how long it would be before somebody linked the current missle system failure to the Malmstrom “case”. All this indicates to me is that Malmstrom was very likely a similar system failure and when news of it started leaking out a cover-up UFO story was spread. These days, the public is far more tech savvy and another UFO cover-up story probably wouldn’t fly :-).

    1. Malmstrom nuke UFOs
      Why would the military/govt start a UFO disinfo campaign to coverup the Malmstrom event when Joe Public didn’t know about it anyway? All they had to do to keep it quiet was to, well, keep quiet! Unless it’s as Mark Pilkington suggests, all part of a bigger disinfo picture.

      Robert Hastings’s research is pretty solid though, and there’s no real gain for many of the servicemen and women to confide in what happened there to a ufologist.

  3. If a man…

    If a man could pass through Paradise in a dream, and have a flower presented to him as a pledge that his soul had really been there, and if he found that flower in his hand when he awoke — Aye, and what then?

    …Sell the flower on eBay?

    😛

  4. Silbury Hill and Solsbury Hill
    Both available to view on Google Street view: one is an ancient wonder, the other a wonderful piece of the English countryside…

    Silbury Hill. The landscape is similar to that around Stonehenge but the siting of the mound is a little strange. It nests within some gently rolling hills and in fact it could be said that it was hidden away from prying eyes – except that an ancient road runs past it!

    Also when I visited the area, I noticed the lack of trees, presumably because of the poor depth of the soil – it could be said to be a desolate spot then and now.

    1. The Dragon Test
      [quote=LastLoup]i ended up as ‘Dragon’ so now what do I do?[/quote]

      You wait for some poor sap named Yume to eat a pair of a forum moderator’s socks. All I can say is I’m glad Greg’s a Queenslander and doesn’t wear socks (he’s the barefoot Fortean).

      The Secret World has been in development for over 4 years now, and won’t be released for at least another year. They’re going mad like Apu.
