Now, I'm really not sure what to make of this.... I don't know that Darth would instill the same amount of terror if this actually was his outfit... I have no idea what this means, but the image is too good not to post.
Where are the
best places in the world to take drugs? Well, it depends on the drugs,
of course, but generally speaking, somewhere hot with clear blue skies
— where there is not too much chance of getting into trouble — works
nicely. Grozny in January would be a very bad place to take drugs of
any kind. Saudi Arabia, though sunny, puts you at the risk of becoming
paranoid. Many people speak highly of Ibiza, and Amsterdam remains an
enduringly popular destination for those who enjoy a weekend binge on
mushrooms or a wide choice of marijuana. For the more adventurous,
site- and substance-specific expeditions — Iboga in Gabon, Ayahuasca in
the Amazon — are becoming increasingly popular choices. Trips like
these, however, are not for the faint of heart. What about the moderate psycho-active traveler,the kind of person
who likes smoking grass and is not averse, if the circumstances are
propitious, to doing an occasional hit of acid; the kind of person for
whom snorkeling in the clear turquoise waters of the Bahamas is
extremely nice — but for whom stoned snorkeling in the clear turquoise waters of the Bahamas is one of life’s supreme pleasures?

Appealing insanity from pamphleteer and retired spy Jesse Ball. Here's what I'm talking about:
ANYONE desiring the presence of JESSE BALL in the office of poet can solicit it elegantly by email.
AS REGARDS the COMPLICATED BUSINESS of COMMISSIONS, Ball eagerly consents to be commissioned in various possibilities.
are as follows: Ball will undertake an artistic commission (that is, a
commission involving the creation of a work of theoretical or actual
art, verse or prose) and deliver himself of that commission within an
agreed upon period of time. Ball will undertake a physical commission
(that is, a commission involving the physical doing of a deed, ie. the
delivery of a turnip to nebraska on motorcycle in three days time).
Such commissions may or may not be costly. The cost varies with the
task involved, its difficulty, and its appealing or unappealing nature.
Generally the stranger or the farther afield, the better. A commission
to photograph Cape Horn with a pinhole camera, for instance, would be
The schedule is as follows:
1. You are to write to Jesse Ball, either by e-mail or physical-post.
2. In this letter, you specify the type of commission, and amount of
money that is to be paid. In the case of certain commissions, Ball
charges only traveling costs, and a small purse with which to sustain
those small appetites that occur to the spirited traveler when pleased
by the moment.
3. The abovementioned specification should take the form of an
itinerary, listing in particular, the places to which Ball will be
required to go, the actions that he will be required to take in those
places, the goods or documents he is to transport, and the obstacles,
be they man, beast or the unknown.
4. As well, it is crucial that the chronology be precise. Ball must
know the exact day upon which the task ought to be completed. In the
case of tasks where such a day cannot be surmised, that date will
necessarily and acceptably be absent.
5. Payment schedule -- payment is to be made promptly by cash, check,
money order, or trade. Trade can be made with goods, services, or
pieces of art (as in the Holland of old).
6. Once the letter reaches Ball, the proposal will be either rejected,
accepted, or put into consideration. In the third situation, the
proposer may find his or herself the recipient of a counterproposal.
Such a counterproposal may then be in turn be met with another
counter-proposal. At this point, the negotiations move into a different
realm, and a physical meeting is even possible, in order to alleviate
the difficulties of bartering.
7. In the proposal, the proposer or querent should write what category
the proposal falls under. These are as follows: a. construction of a
situation or spectacle; b. delivery of goods; c. chronicling of an
event; d. transmission of news; e. the writing of a work; f. the taking
of an animal or human being from one place to another.
8. In the latter case, the animal or human being in question will be
screened by Jesse Ball or an associate of Jesse Ball that a decision
regarding suitability can be reached prior to the definitive signing of
9. All contracts will be legally binding and will be made in the
presence of a witness, and on a Tuesday between the hours of 8 and 9
o'clock. Other times are patently unacceptable and can only be
tolerated in the direst need.
10. It should be specified in the proposal whether or not Ball will be
traveling under a true or assumed name. Should the latter prove the
case, it will generally fall to Jesse Ball to determine what that name
will be. The client will or will not be appraised of that information
prior to Ball's acting upon the commission. Should the client be
informed, he or she may be required to sign a non-disclosure agreement.
