    A legend, and a gentle soul.

    On a related subject: by chance, do you know a Swedish hive chemist Tomas Lilius, who went under nickname Rhodium?

    • drfreddy says:

      Actually I do, or rather did. He got a lot of media exposure during the ’90s, as a generic “expert”, despite having no formal training (to the best of my knowledge). A nut-case, if you ask me.

      Edit: Said person is/was NOT Rhodium. The latter shall forever remain unnamed. Knew both.

        You knew Rhodium?

        Please tell me he/she is a decent person…? For the interesting community they kept alive, it’s always nice to hope they are nice, respectful, as talented as they present, and doing their work for both the curiosity and freedom of knowledge…

  2. Someone says:

    Lilius was most likely an old bee, since he was involved in the same case that brought down Strike, and Lilius was allegedly contracted as an ‘expert’ on mdma manufacturing by some other bees in the ‘triple x’-case

    Now this is not any proofs that he is Rhodium, however I would really like to know Lilius nickname on the hive.

    If rhoidum=lilius it would explain alot, but I really ont want it to be true.

    “Shulgin published the popular TiHkal (Tryptamines I Have Known And Loved) and PiHKAL (Phenethylamines I Have Known And Loved) with his wife, Ann. Shulgin was formerly a chemist for The Dow Chemical Company before he moved on in 1965 to pursue his own research, which he performed at his house in Berkeley, California”………Is it allowed to have your own lab in your house in USA? How did he manage with all the neighbors, and the govt?

    Would appreciate if you could through some light. I am a former chemist driving Taxi. Would love to keep my chemistry skills alive….
