  • Hard News: What the kids do,

    (10) exploration of inner space (your own mind and consciousness)

    Not to be undertaken alone if you value your sanity, especially if its not MDMA. Or at less have someone in the next room. Mrs Shulgin was very interesting on her ventures.

    (11) spirituality – taking psychedelics in order to see God

    Well you wont see s/he/it. But there's plenty of other interesting phantasms of the mind, sure to keep you occupied. And I bet little Johnny and Gerry would shit their pants.

  • Hard News: What the kids do,

    It's obvious that the drug of choice by a long way is alcohol.

    Emma: "There is definitely a binge-drinking culture. If you're going to be drinking, you're drinking to get drunk."

    The chairman of King's College board of governors, Peter Ferguson, says the drinking age should be raised, but the students doubt such a law change would have any impact on their alcohol use.

    This is ringing all kinds of deja vu bells. Binge drinking culture......sure sounds familiar.

    "It is an experimental time in your life and there is always going to be some experimentation. No one is going to deny youth are using them and some youth are abusing them but it's not solely a youth thing. I think it's society's problem."

    Yeah. So can we do something about it instead of making everything illegal!
    I have a few suggestions but what's the point. Some people have whipped themselves into a frenzy and the worlds going to end...as well.

    Andrew, 16: "The reason people take pills is you don't care about tomorrow. It gives you that feeling of happiness where you just want to be happy for that time. You're not worried about anything else in your life."

    Yes and its more the stress of life that is becoming the problem, rather than the human (Iwould say) need, for all the moralists its weakness, to experience altered states. Ever see the buzz a child gets out of making itself dizzy?
    We are all born with more than one voice in our head, why are we trying to deny it? The moralistic approach is not working. And (I'm going for overreach here) those kids better rest and recreate 'cause the future might demand more of them that it did of their parents.

  • Hard News: Rough times in the trade, in reply to giovanni tiso,

    new genres of the first nine decades of the 20th century stopped at a time that coincided with the explosion of digital media.

    wouldnt say stopped. And didnt some big companies try and control that explosion. They seem to have directed it in their face tho', not that I'm an expert.
    So many variables.

    I am not not terribly qualified to judge the content of the argument or satisfied that he has proved causation,

    Yeah I'd say bordering on bullshit as well.
    But we've got brains and speaking of things old..er.

  • Hard News: Christchurch: Square Two, in reply to David Haywood,

    This is true-ish to a certain extent. But it has to be said that most old houses round here already have their own bores for fresh water and soak pits for grey water. And even if the road is removed you still have river and towpath access. If you have a composting toilet and (in the very unlikely case that electrical services cannot be provided) solar panels + (backup) genset then you could still live here quite easily. I know that some quite normal people are keen to do just that.

    Stop it your making me want to move down there.

    Only when it comes to imaginary figures.
    And I hope your not causing suffering to geese in your culinary adventures.
    Whoops, I was being literal again.

    Thats bound to lead to more trouble than its worth.
    Little druggie Paul has been on this journey from wild youth to senile old duffer for a while now. Pity is, the endpart will be public and done in private, amongst the olives. I think he lost something along the way. Decorum?Sanity? something like that....

    "We work in secret, we exist in shadow. And we dress in black."

    Sorta like Will Smiths songwriting “team” on it. Yeah awright Im taking a cheap shot. Who gives a fuck about god when there is funk like this around to be recycled endlessly with new lyrics. You go Will. Just dance folks.
