Berkeley, UNIX, and LSD

 

There are two major products to come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don’t believe this to be a coincidence.

  1. This is funny, but not true.
    LSD was first synthesized by the Swiss chemist Albert Hofmann. Leary was just the first one to abuse it 🙂

  2. You’re correct about Albert Hofmann to be the first to synth LSD, but 1. Leary WASN’T the first to ‘abuse’ it (Hofmann was…Bike day), 2. Post-bike-day, tons of psychiatrists and other people consumed acid prior to Leary.

    Lastly, it is well known that presently there is a lab somewhere in Berkeley as a majority of VERY good acid blotters and crystal pours out of there and has been for a while. Derp.

    It took me a while, but I just realized that your comment was to inform me of the author of the quote. I apologize for taking so long to realize this. I have updated the post to show Jeremy Anderson as the quote’s author.
