Synth repairman accidentally gets high after touching old LSD on a vintage ’60s synthesizer

Post by e3k »

After opening a red-paneled module on the synth, he noticed there was “a crust or a crystalline residue on it.” Naturally, he did what any person tasked with fixing up an old instrument would do: spray some cleaner on it, pick at the residue with his finger, and try to dislodge it by scratching it off. But 45 minutes later, he started to feel some tingling. It was the start of a nine-hour acid trip.

Sounds like a story thread from the TV show Fringe. LSD not stored in any sort of solution, and indeed that old, would have degraded past any point of being at all potent. I'd say the engineer popped some acid and blamed it on the woodgrain mixer when he started munching on the vinyl floor coverings. Or, as I suspect, this is bollocks.
