Well, not sure i agree with you on this one Mqurice.....

for a number of reasons.

first i offer once again verse from the Wisdom of Sirach (chapter 38)

38:4 The Lord hath created medicines out of the earth; and he that is wise will not abhor them. 38:5 Was not the water made sweet with wood, that the virtue thereof might be known?

38:6 And he hath given men skill, that he might be honoured in his marvellous works.

38:7 With such doth he heal men, and taketh away their pains.

38:8 Of such doth the apothecary make a confection; and of his works there is no end; and from him is peace over all the earth,


ayahuasca is a brew made from combining two different plants. it is unknown exactly how the natives figured out how the two together would work -- unless you accept their explanation: "the forest told them."

many people have testified to having life altering (for the better) experiences.

regarding entheogens Kary Mullis had this to say:

Mullis details his experiences synthesizing and testing various psychedelic amphetamines and a difficult trip on DET in his autobiography. In a Q&A interview published in the September, 1994, issue of California Monthly, Mullis said, "Back in the 1960s and early '70s I took plenty of LSD. A lot of people were doing that in Berkeley back then. And I found it to be a mind-opening experience. It was certainly much more important than any courses I ever took." [28] During a symposium held for centenarian Albert Hofmann, "Hofmann revealed that he was told by Nobel-prize-winning chemist Kary Mullis that LSD had helped him develop the polymerase chain reaction that helps amplify specific DNA sequences." [29] Replying to his own postulate during an interview for BBC's Psychedelic Science documentary, "What if I had not taken LSD ever; would I have still invented PCR?" He replied, "I don't know. I doubt it. I seriously doubt it." [30]

Would wait a bit longer for LULU as the shorts will pile on the stock and WS thieves and swindlers bill bust the short positions.

In a way that is also the explanation of double tops and H&S formation.

Best of Luck

Man o' Darkness on Europe:

And for a trip down memory lane, sauced with a good laugh for us Muppets, for your reading pleasure I now present you with the Squid's 10 year Treasury interest rate prognostications it made on 12/10 - 3.3% by today. And US growth? Glad you asked: 4% by mid 2012.

zerohedge.com

The reasoning by its Global Macro and Markets Team, presumably the slickest, smartest BSDs on Wall St:

"5. After being bullish on the direction of government bond yields for the past 18 months, in October we first signalled that the cyclical trough for longer-dated yields was upon us (we forecast 10-yr Treasury at 2.5% for the previous quarter). Going forward, we now see 10-yr yields in the major markets modestly rising, led by real rates. This entails bonds being in a ‘bear market’ over the forecast horizon, but one which should not pull the rug from under a pro-cyclical stance, as inflation and central banks remain friendly. We forecast 10-yr US Treasuries and German Bunds at 3.25% by end-2011, and JGBs trading at 1.5%. We have pencilled in a further 50bp sell-off across the major three markets in 2012. These forecasts are consistent with our forward-looking ‘fair value’ paths implied by our Bond Sudoku valuation model. More specifically, plugging in our macro and policy projections over the next two years implies a gradual pick-up in equilibrium yields from 2.75%-3.00% currently to the 3.50%-3.75% range for US Treasuries and German Bunds, and around 4.0% for 10-yr Gilts."

What a bunch of dopes.

Isn't life grand?
