I Was Born on Mushroom Day! sorta..
    #351304 - 06/29/01 10:50 AM (15 years, 8 months ago)

On June 29 1955, on a remote Mexican mountainside Robert Gordon
Wasson was the first westerner in recorded history to participate
in a sacred psilocybin mushroom ritual, hosted
by a Mexican-Indian shaman named Eva Mendez.

"We chewed and swallowed these acrid mushrooms,
saw visions, and emerged from the experience
awestruck."---R.G.Wasson, LIFE magazine 1957

I found it interesting that my b-day would have the same
date as the revalation of the sacred mushroom in western
society..
But in its own respect we all know what happened with
psychedelics in the following years (60's, 70's) and how
much this event has obviously shaped our lives, and now
here we are growing these in our homes.. I just thought
people would like to hear this little tidbit of Psilocybin
mushroom history.
Plus happy birthday to me!(=^})

Happy Bday! That was a nice piece of history there - lucky you. I have noticed a lot of Bdays around here lately. Mine is July 3. I will be celebrating with a trip this weekend and will keep you in mind.

You suck but your mammas still sweet - support the FSR

"On April 19, 1942, chemist Albert Hofmann of Sandoz Laboratories in Basel,
Switzerland, mixed up a compound he hoped would be a new and better
cure for headaches. Not knowing he had inhaled a great deal of the fumes,
Hofmann got on his bicycle and started to peddle home for lunch.
He began to notice strange sensations."
