Have you ever coded while using drugs?

Posted 12 June 2009 - 12:58 PM

I just read this small article on Reddit about some Senior Programmer who couldn't finish a project on time and took some LSD and his mind could understand every aspect of the problem at hand.

Have you had any other experiences like this?

If one did -- why admit it on an only a pseudo-anonymous forum? Is this really something you want to share with your coworkers or employers?

No. But I've heard of people preparing for exams on drugs.

People find it quite useful as they are able to stay awake for longer times but in the process it ruins their health.

Caffeine, Guarana, Ma Huang, Pseudoephedrine, the usual.

You can code on uppers. Anything else is probably questionable. If you're too doped up to operate heavy machinery, chances are coding will also be a challenge.

No! That's not possible! Take it back! (for anyone who has no idea what's going on)

It's the snobbiest snobby snob snob comic I've ever read on the web. Seriously, it's a massive circle-jerk for everyone.

I tried to write a program after smoking weed. I got about 2 lines in and said, "screw this!" and went and listened to music and ate ice cream.
