Substances have crazy effects on the body.

Caffeine, alcohol, THC, etc--are all made to mess with the chemistry and the brain of a human being for recreational purposes. We are a weird species, no?

What other species seeks out intentionally mind altering substances for fun's sake?


u/FukkenDesmadrosaALV asked:

What the weirdest thing you did while you were high?

Here were some of the answers.


Creek Tales

Some girls in high invited me to go smoke and swim in a creek with them. Of course I went to got high as heck. Spent the next 30 minutes sitting in the creek, I was so still that a fish came up and bit my butt. I didn't realize what I was doing until one of the girls ask me why I was all alone sitting in the middle of a creek not moving.

Moisture

One time my eye was really dry so I stopped drinking my water and started slowly pouring water into my eye, all of it while I was sitting on my friends bed, leaving just a bit so I could still have one gulp.

Wrong Place

One time years ago I was camping at a campground with my wife and a few friends, we're all sitting around the fire drinking. Her brother and I go for a walk to smoke some. We finish that and I have to piss so he goes back to the group, and when I'm done I head back as well. So I get back and I'm pretty baked at this point and I'm just standing there watching the fire and drinking my beer for a few minutes. I then noticed a particular Coleman lantern on the picnic table and thought to myself, 'I don't remember us having one of those here'.

It was at that point that I realized I was standing at the wrong damned campsite, amongst a bunch of people I have never met, while my group was watching from the next site over, laughing and wondering wtf I was doing.

The Wrong Idea

Me to my friend one time when I was high "dude I know exactly what you're thinking right now!"

"Ok what am I thinking?"

"If someone rubs their face really hard it looks like they're rubbing their skin off their face to make it into a mask!"

That was not what he was thinking. To this day I have no idea what came over me...

Bought fresh fish at the wholesale fish market. When you've been partying all night, until dawn, and you see sober people in action, the fish market is really fascinating.

When you wake up the next afternoon and thirst lets you open the fridge, and you see load of silvery eels, you... cannot really relate to that fascination anymore.

Harold and Kumar Would Be Proud

Went to White Castle to get food for everyone after we smoked. We all had the same order, two double cheese sliders and an order or mozzarella sticks. When I gave her my order I didn't just say that I wanted 8 double cheese sliders in total, I repeated the two double cheese sliders and mozzarella sticks 4 times. By the time I got to the end of my order the cashier sounded so defeated. I still cringe thinking back to that moment, but it's also one of my funniest smoke stories.

Whatever Works

A few years ago I was on shrooms with some friends and we went on a walk to smoke a cig. Every time I took a puff of my cigarette, I was expecting to taste Mountain Dew and I was disappointed every time that it didn't. I quit smoking cigs a few days after that!

The very first time i got high, my lovely friend told me "you'll know when you've had enough" so of course i smoked a ton.

When i wasn't moving, it felt like time had stopped. I had no idea what was going on. If i moved though, i was completely fine.

I ended up dancing to no music by myself as long as i could before i went to sleep. ..i think i went to sleep anyway. Time wasn't working, i may have just laid there for 8 hours.

The Aftermath

Got high, ate a bunch of jalapeño poppers… not that weird.

No, the weird part was the calendar appointment I made for myself the next morning that just said "HAHAHAHAHA". High-me apparently predicted the right time for my morning bowel movement, and as those little jalapeño poppers burned again on the way out, he reached out across time and space to laugh at sober-me about it.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.
