Few people can truly be said to have changed the world, but Albert Hoffman was surely one of those few. I found out today that he has died aged 102.

If you watch 'The History Of NASA' backwards, it's about a space agency that has no manned spaceflight capability, then does low-orbit flights, then lands on the Moon.

Lol I remember looking after a bunch of friends that were all off on a trip.

By the end of the night they almost had me convinced I was the one out of touch with reality.

Ahh, times like these, then?

I think I'm utterly terrified by just how much information exists in Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weebl%27s_cartoons#The_Lord

That made finding that skit surprisingly easy, though I didn't really need the detailed plot descriptions. :/

Me, I'm utterly terrified at the amount of pointless information contained in Wikipedia. If I need pop-culture information or a detailed study of a minor Star Trek character or an in-depth criticism of some cult anime, Wikipedia is the place, no doubt. What utterly terrifies me is the vast number of people that take Wikipedia as gospel for everything from biographical information to medical information to zoological information. If it's in Wikipedia...

So, let me get this right... Dude invents LSD -- lives until he's 102. Can anyone else see a market here for a 'Purple Haze' longevity treatment?

Shameless plug. (Please forgive me.)
