“Except for pharmaceutical poison, there are essentially only two drugs that Western civilization tolerates: Caffeine from Monday to Friday to energize you enough to make you a productive member of society, and alcohol from Friday to Monday to keep you too stupid to figure out the prison that you are living in.”  ~  Bill Hicks

"I learned more about my brain and its possibilities... (and) more about psychology in the five hours after taking these mushrooms than... (I) had in the preceding fifteen years of studying doing research in psychology." ~ Timothy Leary 1965
