Monster-truck racing is traditionally the domain of men from rural pockets of the United States who have a bunch of free time on their hands and no qualms with spending upwards of $150,000 on wildly impractical vehicles. Despite the fact that there are roughly a gazillion officially sanctioned Monster Jam events around the country in any given year, many people who live in cities know nothing about the sport and the culture surrounding it. We were some of those frail urbanites who didn’t know the difference between a carburetor and a crankshaft, so when we heard a Monster Jam was happening about two hours outside New York, we grabbed our buddy Dan, shoved two hits of acid down his throat, and headed up to Hartford, Connecticut, to find out what kind of damage a gigantic truck with 2,000 ponies under the hood can do.

    Dude go to the woods next time , geez. Way to ride it out. I've seen friends loose their shit strip naked and start running around the city. You actually did a decent interview.

    I was never able to function on acid. I think the Americans do it right and don't over do it like I did. I drank wine and everything when I took it.

    It always gets better lol just trust your gut. If you with someone or are somewhere that makes you uncomfortable, go somewhere with people that make you feel comfortable.

    Sad, reminds me of the good old days of vice. Before they got mainstream political..they hopped on this fake virtue signaling bandwagon and didn't stay true to themselves. Which would have been both sides and ridiculing them each if anything. People are so tired of politics being in everything…you advertised a show by highlighting there will be no white males in retarded fucks. What did you think would happen? You licked your finger, stuck it up in the air and then chased after the wind.. here's a simple thing, if it's wrong, it's wouldn't happily advertise a show by saying there won't be any black guys on it so why would you think it's OK to do it to anyone else? Golden rule vice..enjoy your massive layoffs you dumb fucks 👌👍

    I can just imagine the thoughts going through this guys head. Humanity's strange fascination and with menial, trite things is really jarring on psychedelics, not to mention it would just be overstimulating.

    9 drops of pure lsd before going into a hot air balloon 50,000 ft in the air or 45 tabs 1hr before entering a completely bright white room with no way out as soon as the doors closed?? Who would pick what and why??

    Why would anybody want to do hard drugs when there’s such top quality weed easily accessible now. With some good smoke you can get just as faded without the danger of the other shit. A 500mg edible, a couple of dabs, and your set.
