Salvia For the Win

gentle
Posted November 11, 2008 - By juster

Salvia, a plant that is reported to produce a range of experiences from uncontrollable LOL's to short-term hallucinations and alterted states is quickly becoming one of Google's most popular search terms as a representative in Texas trying to ban possession... and the unwashed masses of the internet quickly google the hell out of it to find out what's what.

Salvia divinorum is also known as Diviner's Sage or Sage of the Seers (or so Wikipedia tells us).  It is most often smoked, and is currently legal in most states.  If you'd like to see how one looks on the salvia, go no farther than YouTube where Erik does all sorts of exciting things on the drug, like writing a letter to congress, driving and gardening.  Good times.

Here's our favorite part and the whole point of this post.  Google shares its trending data, so interested parties can see what the whole world searches for on a given day.  Today, salvia has blown up, taking up six slots in the top 100, with an interesting and very telling progression:

2. Salvia

4. Salvia Effects

14. Salvia Trip

20. Salvia For Sale

31. Salvia Purchase

55. Smoking Salvia

Oh Internet, will you ever cease to amuse us?

We interrupt our blog's usual focus on the effect of U.S. foreign policy on emerging third-world economies to bring you a link to the top ten foods that look like boobies.

Boobies are good, but there's an important fruit missing here. I'm speaking, of course, of watermelons.

If you have a spare $45,000 sitting around (and who doesn't these days?), perhaps you'd like to purchase the above-pictured vehicle, The ECTO-1, an "official" Ghostbusters car used in the Universal Theme Park in Florida. It's on the eBays.

Busting makes me feel good.

In case you don't follow the actual news, there are some high level discussions going on in Washington in which the future of our nation's monetary system hangs in the balance... serious stuff, but not so serious that an internet meme can't sneak into the proceedings:

If you're curious, those two old white dudes are Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson (L) and Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke.

Hey, everybody, it's Oktoberfest, and that means one thing: A huge gallery of pics of drunken girls in traditional German costumes. Thanks, Germany!

Now if we could only get everyone to stop making that annoying lip-pucker-face in ever shot, we'll be in business.

Below is conclusive proof that aliens are in contact with us, and they come from Jupiter.

We defy you to watch it and not believe that aliens are speaking to us!

Miley Cyrus playing Rock Band on the VMAs last night had me asking: "How can I be into the same thing that this person is into?"

Check out the above sweet boombox! The BREAKDANCER BD-8000 came out in 1984 and came standard with "Disco Lite" technology. This 'box reminds us of a simpler time for our nation, when all we had to worry about was which Facts of Life chick was hottest, imminent nuclear annihilation, and who had the biggest, flashiest cassette player to blast Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam.

More here, at the Boombox Hall of Fame.
