Don't try this at home

Ouch:

A party reveller who took LSD-laced Maltesers scalped himself before falling from a tree and snapping his spine .

Christopher Marlow has been left paralysed from the chest down after the devastating fall at a friend's party.

He had earlier ripped the skin and hair from his head in a bid to "free demons" after taking the hallucinogenic chocolates.

Mr Marlow was discovered writhing in pain at the bottom of the tree, having broken four ribs and lumbar vertebrae in his spine.

The 25-year-old is likely to spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair.

The young man did his best to deflect blame away from the party host who supplied him with the LSD-infused goodie, although the judge in the case made sure to layer on as much guilt as he could, telling her:

"It is a particular consequence of your supply that a young man, who is clearly anxious not to place any blame on you, is now paralysed and in a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

"He may not blame you, but there is no getting away from the fact that this was in large part your doing."

So there! At any rate, let that be a lesson to all of you: if you're stuck with demons inside you, freeing them by peeling your scalp off is going to be more trouble than it's worth.

Um... sad. Don't do acid for the first time without a sitter, kids.

Scalp Leader can you elaborate on the childhood use of Ritalin factor?
I took it and Dex 5 yrs., my first acid trip was so bad it was totally debilitating and the only good ones were with E's at the same time, and even then I burned and hit myself. I also completely destroyed two sensitive relationships for FUN. Acid made that fun.
What about the amphetamines?

Doomed by his name, if you ask me. Historically and fictionally, dooming him to life as a lush and/or pederast. Obviously, he felt the need to outlive his predecessors. It's like if my parents had decided to name me Zelda.

These kids obviously haven't watched the video guide to bad trips over at MAPS;) Remember kids: don't share LSD haphazardly-save it for yourself, or give it to someone who will appreciate it, like an acid head. what's really crazy is that the guy scalped himself, and then made it up into a tree. ???
No one tried to get help till he fell-the hair ripping should have been a dead give away this guy was gonna lose it. I would imagine he's a childhood Ritalin user, or had some other drug history, or some insane religious upbringing. Poor guy. My only other guess is that he was inspired by the works of Alex Grey, and he just wanted to be skinless and see his organs.
