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...

Eels And Escalators

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!

Planted

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.

Being an emergency responder is a high-stress job.

It's a career with long, laborious hours.

There is always a hint of danger. And death is always around the corner.

I hated science classes.

As soon as I could I ran.

But it follows me.

Because science can be downright disturbing.

That's why I blocked out so many of the details.
