Well, this certainly explains a lot



  • Let's call him "Ken." Ken is 25, has a master's degree from Stanford and works for a tech startup in San Francisco, doing a little bit of everything: hardware and software design, sales and business development.

    Ken is one of a growing number of professionals who enjoy taking "microdoses" of psychedelics – in his free time and, occasionally, at the office. "I had an epic time," he says at the end of one such day. "I was making a lot of sales, talking to a lot of people, finding solutions to their technical problems."



  • I love when drug users self-evaluate themselves as being really great at X when they were high, then you ask their co-workers and they'd all say "whoa, on Tuesday? Ken couldn't do ANYTHING right on Tuesday, it took us 3 more days just to mop up the messes he made."

    It is stupid to ruin a perfect kick with thinking about job! It is just dumb waste of neural superconductivity.

    I want to try LSD, just because I can have the experience once before I reach an age that drugs would kill me.



  • It's more a comment on the validity of self-evaluation by those who are high on drugs.

    You see this in all kinds of places, like the pot smokers who are like "I'm so much more creative when I smoke pot!" and you're like... really?


  • BINNED

    It is perhaps not true for pot, you know it if you take it, you become a happy pothead. But nicotine (in the cigarette) dilates the artery and does give a dose of creativity. LSD from what I have read, also will have a deep impact on creativity.

    I am not endorsing any, and should consult your doctor first if you want to try it.



  • I'm not saying it doesn't improve creativity, person who obviously needs a drug to increase their reading comprehension, I'm saying I don't trust the guy's SELF-EVALUATION of it increasing his creativity.



  • At these doses I'd be more concerned about the placebo effect than him tripping balls, though.


  • Discourse touched me in a no-no place

    Maybe they are...but then they run off to get a 6-pack of Twinkies instead of writing that shit down, so there's no actual proof.

    I agree with whatever @blakeyrat and @GiantPinkHippoSurfingAWaveOfGlitterAndDildos just said.
