in thread Advancing oneself personally and professionally as a programmer (discussion)

Bah! Most good hackers possess rigid and sadistically logical minds which tolerate poorly the cognitively disorienting effects of strong psychedelics. For talented programmers, powerful psychedelics induce a state of mental nausea.

Imagine, for instance, knowing that something was wrong with your actual process of reasoning and logic, then realizing that you shouldn't have been capable of coming to that conclusion in the first place if this where so, and furthermore, not comprehending if this where a valid conclusion due to the problem originally stated, and well, you get the idea...

And besides, dreams are wierd enough, no? The shit that my own twisted mind invents at around 2am is trip enough for me, thankyouverymuch.

Life's short. Feel good. Stick to E, oxycontin (and its opiate friends), and perhaps meth, if you can handle it...

Remember kids, just say NO to (soft) drugs.

    That's where you're wrong. The best hackers know, understand and can control non-ordinary states of reality.

    Yes, dreams are very interesting. Did you know that during REM sleep, your body is converting melatonin to DMT, "the most powerful psychedelic known to man"?

    All of the drugs you recommend have a strong addiction potential and definite physiological side effects. Have you actually read anything about them?
