Acid-head shows up at pizza shop wearing just a towel, carrying a gun!

Engle jail

A Michigan man allegedly decided to drop acid and take a trip down to a local pizza place while only wearing a towel. Staff members at Happy’s Pizza in Muskegon Township were not too pleased to see Phillip Andrew Engle show up because he allegedly had a gun and three children with him when he arrived.

The 27-year-old began banging on the glass at the front of the pizzeria and his gun went off. He may have been angry about not being able to eat at the business, although it was open at the time and two employees were working.

No one was injured and Engle walked home after the gun discharged. Police found him sitting on his porch with his 40 caliber semi-automatic in hand. Officers asked him to drop the weapon and he complied.

According to Muskegon Township Police Chief Ken Sanford, Engle admitted to taking four hits of acid before the incident

After the officer defused the “potentially very dangerous situation,” Engle was arrested and brought to a local hospital to be evaluated.

Who says life in small town America is never interesting?

    Judging by the description of this individual’s behavior I’d suggest it’s highly unlikely he ingested D-lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) and more probable that the ‘acid’ he took was a tryptamine compound such as AMT alpha, 5-meo-DMT deemers, 5-meo-DIPT foxy, or perhaps one of the phenthylamine compounds such as 2C-E, 2C-I, 2C-T7. In any case most of what’s sold as ‘acid’ these days are “rc’s”, research chemicals such as 25x-NBOMe and 2C-I-NBOMe. (Google for more info)

    “Ants’ movements hide mathematical patterns” “When ants go exploring in search of food they end up choosing collective routes that fit statistical distributions of probability.

    “The brain on LSD revealed: First scans show how the drug affects the brain” “Researchers from Imperial College London, working with the Beckley Foundation, have for the first time visualised the effects of LSD on the human brain.
    In a series of experiments, scientists have gained a glimpse into how the psychedelic compound affects brain activity. The team administered LSD (Lysergic acid diethylamide) to 20 healthy volunteers in a specialist research centre and used various leading-edge and complementary brain scanning techniques to visualise how LSD alters the way the brain works.
    The findings, published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), reveal what happens in the brain when people experience the complex visual hallucinations that are often associated with LSD state. They also shed light on the brain changes that underlie the profound altered state of consciousness the drug can produce. …The study also revealed what happens in the brain when people report a fundamental change in the quality of their consciousness under LSD.”

      FBI tests showed that the Florida college student accused of randomly killing a couple and chewing on the dead man’s face had no detectable hallucinogenic drugs in his system. According to a report released Wednesday, 19-year-old Austin Harrouff did have alcohol and trace amounts of marijuana in his system after his arrest for allegedly killing 59-year-old John Stevens and his 53-year-old wife, Michelle Mishcon, outside their Tequesta-area home Aug. 15.
      The sheriff’s office said the college student was growling like a dog and had abnormal strength, requiring several deputies to pull him off Stevens. Harrouff also allegedly attacked a neighbor who tried to intervene.

    “Errol Morris talks about teaming up with Netflix to delve into the LSD-laced mystery of a CIA scientist’s death” (Business Insider) “Morris is known best for having a well-trained eye for compelling true-life stories, and using highly stylized reenactments to tell them. The combination has led to legendary documentaries like 1988’s “The Thin Blue Line,” 2003’s “The Fog of War: Lessons from the Life of Robert S. McNamara” (which earned him a best documentary Oscar), and 2013’s “The Unknown Known,” which looked at the career of former US Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.
    Now, almost one month from his 70th birthday, Morris is unveiling his most ambitious project yet.”
