    “…Oh, they know I can’t even move a finger and I won’t. I’ll just sit here and be quiet just in case they do…. suspect me. [3-second pause] They’re probably watching me. Well, let them. Let them see what kind of a person I am. I’m not even going to swat that fly. I hope they are watching. They’ll see. They’ll see and they’ll know, and they’ll say, “Why, she wouldn’t even harm a fly.” [smiles creepily.] Norman Bates’ mother (voice over) “Psycho” (1960)

    • Puzzling Evidence says:

      “Ibogaine produces a state of drowsiness in which the subject does not wish to move, open his eyes, or be aware of his environment.” Excerpt from a study by PharmChem Laboratories, which Hunter S. Thompson mentioned in “Big Ed Exposed as Ibogaine Addict” in the April 1972 issue of Rolling Stone magazine as part of his serialized coverage of that year’s Democratic primary election “Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail”.
