Talking about forward planning, I heard that the drinking the urine of the
primary consumer of Amanita Muscaria was by far the gentlest way of utilising
the hallucinogenic properties of this fungi. I believe that in Siberia
the drug can pass through the whole of village society in this way.
For the squeamish of course there's the Lapplander's "reindeer donor" option
but the logistics are awe inspiring.
Come to mention it, there was definitely something with antlers peering
through the kitchen window just the other morning.
How I would go about dropping Amanita Muscaria into it's shopping bag
is a minor problem though, compared with attaching the catheter.
What do I do with the other end of the tube? Clench it in my teeth and
jog? No wonder the originators of this reindeer method are called Laps!
Then again, I could hardly throw myself under the animal, jaws agape,
every time it took a pee. People might talk.
By the way, how did the Siberians come to realise that drinking each
others urine was such a fun recreational activity in the first place?
Think I'll seek plans for building a glass and rubber reindeer. Perhaps
ask Santa Claus for a customised chemistry set. Call me fussy if you like
but if I'm going to exhibit odd behaviour, I'd prefer to do it wearing a
white coat. Then, when *they* come to take me away, they'll think
I'm one of them!
Might all lack that element of dignity though,
