Man on week-long acid trip ends crime spree after victim takes him to McDonald’s
A Washington man on a week-long acid trip faces multiple charges after going on a drug-fueled crime spree that ended when one of his victims drove him to McDonald’s so he could get a soda.
George Jacobson,23, is charged with multiple crimes including robbery, kidnapping, burglary, and theft of a firearm and is currently being held in Pierce County Jail with bail set at $1 million, according to Fox 13.
Jacobson explained that he “prefers meth,” and had taken a batch of acid causing him to go on a bad trip. Jacobson said he didn’t remember anything about the week other than taking a person’s car and being driven through a drive-thru by a “nice man.”

Geoffrey Holder was a sort of Renaissance man — an accomplished visual artist, dancer, choreographer, costume designer, and composer with two Tony Awards — but he will mostly be remembered for two roles: The 7-Up spokesman in the 1970s and ’80s who declared the soft drink “absolutely maahvelous” and Baron Samedi, the villainous Voodoo henchman in the James Bond film Live and Let Die. Holder died on Sunday at age 84 in New York, after being ill with pneumonia.
Holder was born in Trinidad and Tobago in 1930, moved to England, and then New York City in 1954, when he made his Broadway debut. Along with the Bond movie, Holder was in Annie (1982), Doctor Doolittle (1967), Boomerang (1992), and Woody Allen’s Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex. He was a painter, photographer, and sculptor whose work was shown at the Guggenheim in New York and Washington’s Corcoran Gallery. And he choreographed, designed costumes for, and directed The Wiz on Broadway — the source of his Tonys.
Here is a nice remembrance from Holder’s son.
Between 1882 and 1930, there were almost 2,500 documented lynchings in America.
Below are some of the reason given for the lynchings, including: ‘acting suspiciously,’ ‘unruly remarks,’ ‘entering a white woman’s room,’ and ‘testifying against a white man.’
Southern trees bear a strange fruit
Blood on the leaves and blood at the root
Black bodies swingin’ in the Southern breeze
Strange fruit hangin’ from the poplar trees
Pastoral scene of the gallant South
The bulgin’ eyes and the twisted mouth
Scent of magnolias sweet and fresh
Then the sudden smell of burnin’ flesh
Here is a fruit for the crows to pluck
For the rain to gather, for the wind to suck
For the sun to rot, for the tree to drop
Here is a strange and bitter crop

Bloody lunar eclipse Wednesday morning, America:
If you missed the blood moon earlier this year, be sure to set your alarm because another total lunar eclipse will return to the sky early Wednesday morning.
Insomniacs and early risers will have the best chance of catching a glimpse of the celestial sight, which is set to begin a little after 5 a.m. ET, according to AccuWeather.
The Earth will position itself between the sun and the moon, creating a full lunar eclipse with a majestic red hue.
If you have neighbors who believe in the rapture, this afternoon would be a good time to let them know about this and ask if you can have their stereo.
Can’t hurt to try…
Don’t they have a plane or a missing blond woman to look for, or something?

This is not, repeat NOT, a tweet from a parody account.
There are people in America who really think this way and yet are smart enough to operate a computer and allowed to vote. Be afraid. Be very afraid…
