Interesting that the reason why researchers get scared off is because of entertainment success. As if entertainment nullifies science.

inadvertant reason to legalize cocaine

The underlying reason alcohol boosts income is due to social interaction, especially in men. Just think of the income boost by throwing coke into the mix. Another way to look at the 70's "rich man's aspirin"

Alcohol use helps boost income: study - Yahoo! News

no worries?

I wrote earlier
noticable lack of cares & worries what others think or see
I also had no problem unbuttoning her shirt on the dance floor; I could have gone further and pobably would have if the venue was burning man.

How do I have that attitude when there hasn't been a buildup? I could use NLP techniques. I want to think of what I am doing instead of what I'm not doing.

There is one further piece to throw in the mix. And it may be the crux. The majority of her attention was upon me. She made no effort to talk with anyone else or to catch anyone else's eye.

Wow...just writing that forced me to stop, cross my arms, tighten my throat, tense my shoulder, and have the overwhelming desire to argue it away. Touching a raw nerve here....


A very nice evening on Friday. What made it so?

Getting "there"
  • Taking time for self and wife
  • Ritual of getting dressed to go out
  • Bassnectar
  • Birthday call to very close friend
  • 1/2 tab e , 5mg vike, 100g n2o
  • Dancing

  • body language - head & chin up; shoulders back
  • emotional state is "beaming" - an exuberant push of emotion, joyous, energetic - fuck yeah
  • feedback from others - the vibe and smiles
  • play with wife
  • water, 2 bites of food, fresh air

  • left shoulder burn gone ~ 4 days +
  • emotional contentment for 24 hours and tapering

  • experiment with further anchoring of state by rubbing fingers behind back - ever so slight elation without other environs + 3 days
  • noticable lack of cares & worries what others think or see - this deserves its own post
