Insane Visuals

I ingested the 'Alpha-O' around 6pm. My friend had recieved the chemical from a research company and added the powder to some Jack Daniels in an eye dropper. I remember him dropping the 5meo onto my tongue and immediately feel the affects. As each drop hits my tongue i feel the drug enter my blood stream. I probably took between 4-8 drops of around 2ml of 'alpha-o' per drop.

I was tripping about an hour later with slight visuals but mainly feeling just fucked up, like the beginning of an acid trip. I remember walking up to our head RA (in the dorms) and talking to her for about 15 minutes. She had no idea but he face was warping in and least that's what I was seeing...

As the night continued I my buddy and I realized our peak of the trip was nowhere near. It seemed every our we were tripping twice as hard. And when I say tripping it feels nothing like shrooms or L. It's more like a combination of weak acid and MDMA without the paronoid feelings. I remember sitting in my jeep (NOT DRIVING! LISTENING TO MUSIC!) and looking at my dash with some fellow trippers. We all saw a dragon chasing a masked man riding a roman chariot. It was mearly a shadow being cast on the dash the characters seemed to come alive. We saw numerous characters on my dash while listening to Lotus: Nomad.

Later that night I was laying in bed starring at my tv screen. It was a still image of the Xbox 360 logo. I look over at my friend and repeatedly ask him if the screen was pulsating and warping in on itself. He told me the screen was completely still with no moving images to my surprise. Each letter of the 'Xbox 360' logo was moving in and out, twisting and twirling almost to the beat of the music. Each letter had it's own movement and pulse. These visuals continued for around 5 hours until I finished a bottle of 92 proof Sailor Jerry's and tried to sleep. I didn't get to sleep until midnight of that night (almost 36 hrs of little to no sleep).

This drug has more visuals then I could ever expect and they lasted for around 12 hours. Although this drug amazed me, I'll probably never ingest it again. I had read a lot about it before taking it, and I was pretty sketched out about it. When I finally decided to take it, I realized how bad this drug is for you. I remember yelling 'MY BRAIN HURTS' numerous times.
