SiHKAL: Shulgins I Have Known and Loved The Last Interview With Alexander Shulgin By Hamilton Morris and Ash Smith Alexander Shulgin and the author. I love Alexander Shulgin. I’ve loved him from the first moment I read about him. By Hamilton Morris and Ash Smith I love Alexander Shulgin. After years of preparation I called the Shulgin residence, ostensibly for an interview. We had a conversation; she called me “honey,” which I enjoyed tremendously, and unexpectedly had a New Zealand accent. Although Alexander Shulgin is not exactly a household name, he is unquestionably the most important psychedelic chemist who has ever lived. Shulgin’s career started at the Dow Chemical Company, where he made a name for himself synthesizing Zectran, the first biodegradable insecticide. Meanwhile, less than a block from Tompkins Square Park, the NYPD busted down the door of a psychedelic chapel called the Church of the Mystifying Elation in an early-morning raid. I thought for a moment before answering, “Aardvark is one…” “Aardwolf?” “Aha!”

The first awakening occurred in 1999 when a man who had spent three years in a persistent vegetative state spontaneously regained consciousness after ingesting a 10mg tablet. Since then, hundreds of patients have experienced miraculous recoveries from traumatic brain injury using Ambien. Tanks for the Memories

Yoda How much Force power can Yoda output? —Ryan Finnie I’m going to—of course—ignore the prequels. There’s a great SMBC comic exploring the geopolitical consequences of having Superman turn a crank to provide an unlimited source of energy. Yoda’s greatest display of raw power in the original trilogy came when he lifted Luke’s X-Wing from the swamp. The energy it takes to lift an object to height h is equal to the object’s mass times the force of gravity times the height it’s lifted. First we need to know how heavy the ship was. m_{x} = m_{f22} \times \left(\frac{12.5}{19}\right)^{3} \approx 5,600\mathrm{kg} Next, we need to know how fast it was rising. The front landing strut rises out of the water in about three and a half seconds, and I estimated the strut to be 1.4 meters long (based on a scene in A New Hope where a crew member squeezes past it), which tells us the X-Wing was rising at 0.39 m/s. Lastly, we need to know the strength of gravity on Dagobah. Nope. What about Luke?
