I am alive in this world of face-first falls and public breakdowns
I'm a retarded, disfigured clown
Dying to be heard for the simple art of letting this heavy wall finally fall
I'm an equal being of no race or color
A hallucination if you will
Sneaking into the lives of strangers and letting them fall apart

Well doesn't that just suck.

A great man who will always be remembered.

RIP...

If anyone deserves to go on to a blissful place, it is him. LSD has touched so many lives in a positive way, myself especially. He had a good run, a great one actually. It was simply his time.

and what's even better is that he doesn't look like some kook or a dirty hippie or something

he looks like a responsible respectable man whose contribution to the scientific and psychedelic worlds
is clearly of great benefit to mankind.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albert_Hofmann
"Rumors of death

A comment on the popular social news site reddit announced Hofmann's death on April 29, 2008.[6] The announcement was also echoed by the blog Boing Boing,[7] but at this stage there are no other sources to confirm this rumor."

Thats not exactly a reliable source, if Hoffmann died I would think it would be on the news. At 103 though, you really can't ask for much more.

His death is on Erowid, so that's a pretty good confirmation I would say, but who knows.

It's funny how when you're talking about testing the first nuclear weapon, which some scientists thought could possibly set off a chain reaction that would burn off our entire atmosphere and leave a lifeless barren rock floating in space, the risk is justified. But if a few extra people might get stoned it's just too dangerous to try.

Yup, it's true.  MAPS recieved confirmation several hours ago, and the story has made it to the mainstream media.

I don't think we should be sad and bummed; he lived a very full and satisfied life... death had apparently been very much on his mind since his wife Anita died this past December.

Rather than be sad, I think we should all take a moment to reflect on how his discovery has affected us personally.  He was a great man, with a very articulate sense of the importance that psychedelics hold with regard to human developement.  Let's celebrate his life, rather than mourn his passing.

He would have died in his 70's had it not been for the life-extending properties of LSD.
