Albert Hofmann and Bicycle Day: How LSD changed the World It is true that my discovery of LSD was a chance discovery, but it was the outcome of planned experiments and these experiments took place in the framework of systematic pharmaceutical, chemical research. It could better be described as serendipity.- Albert Hofmann. Many people know about the effects of LSD-25 but have yet to learn the history of the substance. Albert Hofmann synthesized, experienced, and changed the world with lysergic acid.
Imagine being on the back of an older brother's bike, arms hugging his chest tightly and flying down a hill, wind flowing through hair billowing out behind and lungs sore from shouting for joy. The next day is made up of begging for a bike and the passion to be the same one flying down that hill, wheels turning too fast to see and the landscape shooting by too fast to make out more than a blur. Soon, a bike is given with a bow on top, cherry red and oh, so beautiful. The next week is spent learning how to ride it; falling down, trying to balance, falling down again, and still, can't balance. Finally, enough practice allows the freshly polished cherry red bike to perch at the top of the hill, an eagle ready to fly, and then down it goes, seemingly soaring over the pavement.
One of my favorite things to do while I am cycling at the lake is to connect with some of the many cyclists who are doing cross Canada cycling trips. Our cottage is near Kenora, Ontario on Lake of the Woods and is a prime location to meet up with cross-Canada cyclists. Highway 17 which runs along the shoreline of Lake of the Woods is really the only route a cross-Canada cyclist can take through this area of Ontario. They stick out like a sore thumb. Their bikes will be heavily laden with panniers so they are easy to identify. I always make a point of stopping to talk to them or if necessary to push a little harder on the pedals to catch up to them if I see them riding ahead of me on the highway.
Mountain Biking I have come to love bicycles in the course of the past year. I am especially fond of mountain bikes, including my own. Riding it opens up a whole new world of opportunities and challenges for me. I am still fairly fresh to the whole mountain biking scene, so I push myself to become better with more experience. Riding is an outlet; it is something I can channel pent up energy through. I love the sport because it is a full body, soul, and mind experience that affects all five of the senses.
“Yeah, but it is the most important part. Get back to work.” I retorted. I opened my terminal application and and applied a secondary security measure to the backup battery. This should hold them out for a few minutes. Now, I should wait until offense shuts down their electrical grid. All of a sudden, my computer monitor shut off. A few seconds later, the lights went out for a second time. The backup battery failed. There was a sense of panic in the room. Everything froze and became quiet for a golden three seconds. Then, chaos started. People started to run for the door. Explosions. Twenty people lie on the floor. I spotted an opening in the rubble about one foot in diameter. It’s a little small, but it will have to do. It’s now or never I thought. “Come on Andre, let’s go,” I exclaimed. No response. I looked back at the desk right next to mine. The one desk that has always been next to my desk. The picture of two elderly figures on the top right of the desk. A rubber band ball with a radius of about three inches. A computer monitor littered with sticky notes; all different colors. A cup of fifty paper clips on the far
As I approached the closet, I stepped on what I thought was but was one of the fallen screws. I could only find three screws instead of the four I needed, meaning that it would eventually fall apart, and I did not want to wake up again to deal with the broken closet. Recalling my long-ago lessons of middle school engineering that I thought I would never use, I tiptoed out of my room and looked for the tape and chopsticks I needed to build my contraption to hold up the board.
