I hear Xtasy does the trick. Know where I can find any?
On that note my friend's Uncle was in the Vietnam War and subsequently got addicted to heroin. He said to my friend, heroin is heaven in a needle. Under the influence of heroin, your mere existence is such sweet bliss it could only be described as heaven. The problem is, once you've experienced bliss, normal life becomes a living hell in comparison. All it takes is one taste of bliss and then you're hooked permanently, with life on Earth being a literal hell.
Anyone who hasn't seen the movie Requiem For A Dream
should put it on their list of must-sees.
And now I recall how Jesus would occasionally grumble out loud, wondering how much longer He would have to "endure" existence in this miserable place.
