One of America's Greatest Suns, George Sands, Inventor of Orange Sunshine

This undated photo provided by Lorenzo Hagerty shows Nicholas Sand and his partner, Gina "Usha" Raetze. Sand, who with fellow chemist Tim Scully, created the legendary version of LSD known as "Orange Sunshine" that first hit the streets of San Francisco in 1967, died at age 75 on April 24, 2017, at his home in the Northern California community of Lagunitas. Sand had spoken just the day before at a "Psychedelic Science Conference" in Oakland, Calif., where the film "The Sunshine Makers" was screened.

George Sand was in the bitstream before anyone else even knew it existed.  That came later and people thought it was about computers.

Thank you, George Sand, for my first time trippin' with Orange Sunshine.

I don't remember so much the cosmicity from it but I do still see the cars turning into icebergs and floating down the street because, wtf, the cars were a nuisance and the world is much nicer without them.

That the street did not also freeze does not matter for trippin' since, well, yeah, that could work.

Ed:  are we going with Billy Pilgrim and getting unstuck in Time?

Nah since you're already there, mate.  You're just not sure when you are.

See you all on the bitstream.
