Issei Sagawa murdered an innocent woman and spent three days eating her flesh. Due to loopholes in the law, Issei is a free man to this day.
On the afternoon of June 13, 1981, a Japanese man named Issei Sagawa walked to the Bois de Boulogne, a park on the outskirts of Paris, carrying two suitcases. The contents of those suitcases, to the lament of a nearby jogger, was the dismembered body of a fellow student -- a Dutch woman named Renée Hartevelt, whom Sagawa had shot three days prior and had spent the days since eating various parts of her body.
He was soon arrested. According to reports, Issei uttered, "I killed her to eat her flesh," when they raided his home, whereupon they found bits of Renne still in his fridge.
Sagawa was declared insane and unfit for trial and was institutionalized in Paris. His incarceration was to be short, however, as the French public soon grew weary of their hard-earned francs going to support this evil woman-eater, and Issei was promptly deported. Herein followed a bizarre and seemingly too convenient set of legal loopholes and psychiatric reports that led doctors in Japan declaring him "sane, but evil."
On August 12, 1986, Sagawa checked himself out of Tokyo's Matsuzawa Psychiatric hospital, and has been a free man ever since.
The soy conspiracy!

You will find that in 2012 soy lecithin is in chocolate, cocoa, coffee, powdered milk and many more products.
Soy lecithin (E322) is extracted from soybeans either mechanically or chemically using hexane. It’s actually a byproduct of the soybean oil production.
Why would companies use soy lecithin in their products if cocoa was always 100% cocoa and coffee was always 100% grind coffee beans? They claim its an emulsifier. Making more thicker/smooth substance and taste.
Or is is because soy is so cheap that you can use it as a filler and you end up as 9% coffee and 91% soy lecithin and other chemicals? That would be horrible, but there exists such coffee - Nescafe 3in1.
While i buy 100% pure cocoa, espresso coffee and powder milk, Nestle thinks they can add soy lecithin in Nescafe, Nesquik cocoa and even their powder milk. But wait...why would a pure substance like powder milk or cocoa need an emulsifier? Afraid it might get wet or sticky? Please...
Imagine how much profit you will make if you produce 20% cocoa 80% soy lecithin instead of 100% cocoa.
Were we meant to do psychedelics?

I've been dabbling in psychedelics for the past few years.
Long story short, it's made me question whether or not people that use them are messing with a world that we were meant to stay out of. I originally started using them because:
1. Drugs are fun
2. I wanted to gain knowledge.
At first I seemed to be gaining all kinds of insights from my trips. But really long story short, I've decided that I think some things are better left unknown. I realized that the knowledge that you gain from these kinds of things brings mostly pain and little pleasure. What little pleasure I took from it went towards stroking my own ego for having the knowledge in the first place.
Those of you who have used psychedelics know that feeling of having communicated with entities outside of your own psyche. Going into this phase, I did not believe in the paranormal. At all. If someone had told me this stuff, I would have said, "No shit, you were on drugs." But having the experiences myself have made me question my own skepticism a little bit.

Extradimensional thread. Post stories of your travels beyond four-dimensional spacetime, or any extradimensional issue.
Here's my story. I've recently become quite sure that I'm some sort of extradimensional being. Unfortunately, I just don't know what I am, exactly.
I've traveled being conventional spacetime on numerous occasions. I perfectly understand the nature of life, reality, and human consciousness (don't ask, it takes a while to explain and I've done it in other threads). I've always felt a strange detachment, like I'm watching my life from a distance. And honestly, I'm the single most intelligent being I have ever come across. I just wish I knew more about my nature.
