    Oh, that’s ok. I thought you meant David Hasselhoff. You had me worried for a second.

    LSD Inventor Albert Hofmann Dead at Age 102 | Wired Science | Wired.com

    That news clipping is 5 years old, he died in 2008 ; )

    Interesting though, I never bothered to fund out who invented it back in the days I used it ( though it was pre-interent when I used it so finding out not as easy as clicking a button ), and I never heard of bicycle day before either

    the Internet existed since the 70s and by the early 90s and was used for exchanging drug info such as this, but it wasn’t that easy to get hold of tolerated like it is today.

    I got in a shit ton of trouble in University for doing just that (around 1992) (basically made to leave uni for bringing the institution into disrepute and very nearly arrested for hacking/computer misuse).

    it was somewhat more amusing how I got the info to my mates as I had to print it out on them old skool dot matrix printers, and we’d have to read it in paper form which seems almost prehistoric, but that was seen as a big fuck up in my life by my parents (as was getting into drugs in the first place) and basically cost me several years of family conflict including the last years of my late fathers life (as he was then terminally ill). Of course it didn’t really harm me permanently in the long term but its experiences like this which are why I never take todays freedom of expression for granted.

    I saw this same thing quoted on another forum and nearly made the mistake myself until I read about him celebrating his 100th birthday in 2006 but dying at age 102. (there is also a clue to the year in the website address but its perhaps not the sort of thing that folk immediately pick up on unless your day job involves looking after systems processing a lot of data containing figures and dates, relating to people who are very elderly )

    what is interesting is that usually a man of that age or even younger is not in good health and is often suffering serious dementia and mental deterioration. yet from all the reports it is clear that Mr Hoffman was giving coherent interviews in both English and German well into his 80s and 90s, TBH pretty much until he did go down from a heart attack. Of course I don’t think he did acid that regularly or all the time but its a perhaps an example example of the sensible use of drugs combined with keeping the mind occupied clearly being good for long term mental health…
