Born to do Math 26 - LSD for 4 Times (Part 2)
Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner
April 2, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: That if I could at 2,000 words a minute without LSD. What could I do with a night of having my perceptions blown out?! It—it didn’t go well.

Scott Douglas Jacobsen: [Laughing].

RR: I take the LSD. I hide in the bathroom as the library closes. As it turns out, I am completely paranoid about a janitorial crew.

SDJ: [Laughing].

RR: My perceptions are pretty whacked at this point. I’d see a garbage can on wheels where there hadn’t been one before. Then I would get hungry, and would go down to the basement, and I knew how to reach into the vending machine to get stuff without paying for it.

SDJ: [Laughing].

RR: I would pull half of a burrito, only a torn half of a burrito during the extraction process [Laughing]. Ate half the burrito, it didn’t make me feel a whole lot better. I freaked out. Finally, I gave up, and had to go find a janitor. At this time, your processing is all messed up because everything is moving slowly. My freaking out probably took like 5 hours. By the time I go find a janitor, and begged to be let out of the building [Laughing], it is almost sunrise.

SDJ: [Laughing].
