I am at a Mexican restaurant and they are taking forever to get my food.

Ever run into the same problem?

    There beats within your heart the perfectly natural desire to eat the delicious chips and salsa in front of you now.

    Suppress this desire

    Once my brother and sister in law and I stopped at a moderately upscale italian chain eatery a couple hours before a basketball game we had tickets to. We informed the hostess immediately that we would be on a timetable and asked if they were busy and if we could be reasonably accommodated. She said "yes of course!"

    The waiter didn't even show up at our table for half an hour at which point we just left.

    Re: hallucinogens, I would like to try but I'm apprehensive

    My specific experience of anxiety is about spiraling, detailed imagined scenarios that spin into vivid life from trivial stressors or none at all

    This seems like a vulnerability

    A friend just called saying she couldn't make it to the seder. Which I knew but was confused why she said yes but wasn't worried I had the chairs.

    It was very sweet of her.

    Also man people sound so different over phones.

    It’s good to be cautious but I would say that they are going to be completely different than you think they are

    Another thing to worry about, I suppose

    I mean

    You'd know everything you were seeing wasn't real.

    Unless you did a fuckload of it, but at that point you've probably got bigger problems.

    I saw a paper half remembered article headline about a paper on guided trips being useful for reducing anxiety about death.

    It was in terminal patients, but I'd be very interested to try that, since I get a death fixation when I am stressed. It's ok, though, I've only been heavily stressed approximately 90% of the last six years.

    You have to take a lot of anything to straight up see something that isn’t there

    Most experiences are more subtle - things breathe, vision can be affected by the textures of things you’re holding, the ceiling is covered in spikes and there’s no gravity, etc

    this isn't my evening butt. As chat is classified only as semi-formal, I'm wearing my afternoon butt.

    I have had actual bad hallucinations from different eras of my life due to a few things. I am not a fan of my unconscious brain. It is a dick. So I stay away from those.

    I refuse to believe this came out in 2018. It had to have been recorded in 1993 then hidden for 25 years, the band cryogenically preserved. It's the 90's-est indie rock thing that ever existed. The guitars, the lyrics, the vaguely west coast accent, even the blase vocal intonation. It's incredible.

    Acid is not necessarily a pleasant experience but you also don't necessarily take it to be a pleasant experience (though it absolutely can be, like if you're out in nature or appreciating art or music), for me it almost kind of trained me in how to relax, because you become kind of fundamentally helpless against what you're going through

    My first experience I would describe as the feeling of dying, but the experience was not painful

    Well, he was right that psychedelics are generally a boon to humanity, validating millenia of practice by various indigenous peoples, etc etc etc

    I don't think he'll ever be vindicated insofar as he painted a massive target on psychedelics at a time when Nixon needed a scapegoat, setting back science and culture by 50 years in a lot of respects.

    Went to a restaurant for the first time. The waiter asked me what I wanted to drink. I asked for a soft drink. He brought it and I said not quite ready yet, give me one second on the food. He walked away and I waited for 35m. Finally I figured some emergency happened so I went up front to just pay for my drink. The hostess was on the phone with some like, delivery customer or maybe one of the gig economy companies, DoorDash or whatever? I waited a few minutes for her to get off the phone and I eventually just left. Stole that coke, I suppose.
