…You can hack your brain to hallucinate?

Hallucinations

Want to hallucinate without the harsh after effects of mind-altering substances using just a radio and some ping-pong balls?

The Boston Globe has put together a few easy illusions, hallucinations and psychedelic experiences that can take you on a trip with objects you probably already have around the house and just a few minutes of your time.

The tricks include the Ganzfeld Procedure, the Pinocchio Illusion, the Rubber Hand Illusion, and Purkinje Lights, and each sounds more trippy than the last.

Plus, unlike LSD, magic mushrooms or mescaline, these phenomena can all be turned off just as easily as they’re turned on, allowing you a safe and temporary escape from the trappings of your mind.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Meth Rocket?

Meth Rocket

Though it’s not exactly a performance improvement, two crafty drug runners from Missouri sure did do some tricky modifications to their vehicle. Though their plan seemed foolproof, their execution surely was not.

The ‘meth rocket’ that they designed was supposed to fly out of their trunk if they were stopped by the cops, and was activated by a series of pulleys and the car’s cigarette lighter.

Unfortunately for them, their rocket didn’t go skyward when the red and blues started flashing, and they were pulled over in possession of two pounds of methamphetamines and 41 Viagra tablets.

Sounds like quite the party.

…London’s underground is filled with animals?

Underground Elephant

Paul Middlewick stared at the London Underground map for so long, he started to see animals. Then, he realized that he wasn’t crazy, the tube lines, stations and junctions of the subway really did form into the shape of an elephant. Since that fateful discovery some 17 years ago, many more members of the animal kingdom have been discovered, all of which are documented at AnimalsOfTheUnderground.com, a collection of 27 animals. No drugs required.
