Not only are you completely right, but I think this clearly calls for
psychotropic exploration at every available opportunity. Clearly,
Noisebridge is about exploring our inner worlds, which is why we
should set up an "Acidbridge" night where people come into the space
high on whatever interesting drugs they can find, and give impromptu
lectures to everyone around the space about what they're seeing and
why they're not wearing any pants.
