    This reminds me of that Baudrillard thing about the "weakness" of proving to yourself that you exist.

    “…sense of futility that comes from doing anything merely to prove to yourself that you can do it: having a child, climbing a mountain, making some sexual conquest, committing suicide.
    The marathon is a form of demonstrative suicide, suicide as advertising: it is running to show you are capable of getting every last drop of energy out of yourself, to prove it… to prove what? That you are capable of finishing. Graffiti carry the same message. They simply say: I’m so-and-so and I exist! They are free publicity for existence.
    Do we continually have to prove to ourselves that we exist? A strange sign of weakness, harbinger of a new fanaticism for a faceless performance, endlessly self-evident.”

    Sixty years after William S Burroughs journeyed into the South American rainforests and took the hallucinogenic infusion yagé, the respected neuroscientist Andrew Lees has written a memoir telling of how the Beat legend inspired his own trip to the Amazon, where he experimented on himself with the potion to further his medical research into Parkinson’s disease.

    it seems to be just a thing you do as a pretext to writing a book now. like inviting a navy SEAL to live with you for a month or walking round Ireland with a fridge.

    I'd definitely publish your book about living with a navy SEAL for a month to join you in taking psychedelic drugs

    Actually I'd also like to see you position yourself as a wyrd Brit Rogan.

    I think you should set yourself a goal: achieve full-blown gammon status by the end of the summer.

    would have to start eating red meat. only way you can achieve that bloat, the crimson cheeks and dead eyed look. that spiritually debased and broken flesh sack look.

    Carry on defeating yourself, by all means. A body can consume itself for quite a while on your diet, certainly long enough to see you into late middle age before collapsing into a cachexic wreck of metabolic disorders, depression, chronic bloat and fatigue. It is perfectly acceptable in British males, so why not?
