How long until the herd spews a new myth as fact?
We already have the “If you take LSD you will jump off buildings thinking you can fly”
“Do LSD more than 7 times and you will be deemed legally insane”
“Do LSD and you will not get drafted to Vietnam”
"Drug tests can detect LSD by spinal tap because LSD is found in spinal fluid”
“Ecstasy puts holes in your brain”
“Each time you do ecstasy it’s like taking an ice cream scooper to your brain”
In light of the events of the Causeway Cannibal and a feeble-minded official spewing garbage about how “bath salts” are “LSD like” drugs (whatever the hell that means), we likely have a new myth being born. The national news media (known for their integrity and journalistic skill) is already reporting this moron’s clearly ignorant knowledge of what “bath salts” and “LSD” drugs are, and twisting it to claim that LSD is somehow the cause of the Causeway Cannibal’s rampage. Never mind the fact that an autopsy hasn’t been done yet and nobody knows if drugs are even remotely involved; get one clown official to blather about subjects he knows nothing about, then reporters and eventually the herd will repeat it as fact.
Already headline news articles are twisting the official’s own moronic statements and are now proclaiming LSD caused the Cannibal to do what he did even though that is NOT what he said (he stated something equally stupid by comparing bath salts to LSD but never said LSD is to blame).
However, my guess is that this will cause the uneducated ilk among us to proclaim as fact that LSD will cause you to gnaw your friend’s face off.
Am I wrong, or have I just become too cynical after decades of observing people, many of whom I can’t fathom how they even are able to function in society, let alone survive into adulthood?
