So I have this huge first year philosophy paper due in about 8 hours. I'm halfway finished and I'm out of ideas. I'm thinking of smoking a joint to maybe get my juices flowing better. Does anyone here get high before writing essays and find it to be a good idea?
GEAR:
Vantage Ghost Gibson "The Paul" copy
Fender FM-100H half-stack
Regal vintage 30W class A amp head (handcrafted in Montreal)

Probably not, it might end up all "Dude if we got this huge crate of lobsters and mated them with my little sister, would the result be crime fighting lobster babies?

Of course that's a good idea

I think you need to stop caring what people think about it. I stayed home all day today and masturbated like 5 times. Fucking blast.

Lol. No. Philosophy actually requires you to be able to think clearly. Don't go there.
Just because it's simple, doesn't mean it's bad.
#11
I don't know about weed and philosophy, but I know booze and differential equations is a great combination.

So I don't see why yours wouldn't work.
There will probably be a signature here at some point.

Most people over exaggerate the effects of Marijuana... Go for it, particularly with philosophy it will help open your mind to new ideas which is basically what philosophy is all about right?

A friends father told of a guy he knew in college who dropped acid before taking a philosophy test and wrote the word "mirror" about 2000 times.

better smoke the joint than be in the pit if you've got 8 hours to do the essay mate

If you want ideas going for a walk is a great thing to do.


I know if I smoked a joint all I'd end up doing is giggling and eating crisps.

I like to masturbate when I smoke weed. I think writing a paper is a great idea. I've written many of my papers in high school and all of them in college after smoking a joint or two. And of course, after a masturbation session.

No, man.

You should have smoked the joint earlier and written down your ideas. Then you could have structured them while sober.


This.

Not to mention correct sentence fragments, run-on sentences, ridiculous typos, etc.

It could potentially be helpful for constructing an outline, but when you procrastinate like you did, it will just hurt.

My advice would be to do it if you have time to revise after. That's what me and a friend did for our writing when we first started a band; we'd get stoned as hell, write something, then the next morning, go back and clean it up once we were thinking clearly.

granted it was only 11th grade, but being AP and getting consistant near 100%s on essays [also a 5 on AP] i can attest to smoking before an essay as it was my main strategy. I kinda have a natural talent at english and am too lazy to actually read the books they make you read [unless theyre good like tale of two cities, frankenstein, ect] and so being high kinda tones be down when i have to write an essay and come up with some shit outta nowhere.

It kinda depends what the topic is and how comfortable you are with philosophy. But, seeing as it's a first year class, if you're clever enough you can probably get away with it.

What is the topic?
