Albert Hoffman turns 100 tomorrow

In 1938 he was a chemist at a Swiss pharmaceutical firm, where he began experimenting with the ergot fungus. His work led to the discovery of several useful drugs, but none of those would go on to have the impact as did the curious compound that was #25, which he called "lysergic acid diethylamide". Although the chemical had no apparent medicinal use, it would become very well noted for its consciousness-altering effects.

Dr. Albert Hoffman, the father of LSD, celebrates his 100th birthday tomorrow. In honor of all the wonderful good that LSD has given humanity, I propose that sometime tomororow we all listen to William Shatner's rendition of "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds".
