when you spell it 'tripping balls' it will link.
Point of nomenclature. The term is "tripping bowls" and refers precisely to what is shown in this clip; the smoking of bowls of reefer whilst tripping on psychedelic drugs. It's a pretty heavy combination. I'd say he was handling it about as well as could be expected. The corrupted form "balls" is quite common tho.
Oh I know, I like how he has a name for his piece; my bong and piece both have girl names too.
Are you trolling the weed community or is this an actual thing where you live?
I had a steamroller with a goofy dragon head in the center (which the smoke poured out the mouth of, neat effect) and named it Fafnir, after a mythological dragon that got its head cut off.
One day it fell about 5 feet off the dresser I had in my closet and onto linoleum, and the only part that broke was the head, which cleanly snapped off. Worked fine after that, even got all the head chunks out.

"Isn't life weird? Everything is weird." I am guilty of saying this on psychedelics many times.
I'm pretty sure someone has posted this Achewood comic in response to a discussion about psychedelics, but it really is one of the most succinct, accurate and hilarious depictions of being high as fuck I have ever seen.
Also, thank Christ no one ever filmed me tripping balls. That would be embarrassing.

As someone who has never done mushrooms, what are the odds that this man was already annoying? Can mushrooms make someone unbearable or do they just heighten how unbearable someone already is? This is a serious question.
mushrooms make everything more intense depending on your personality, way more than cannabis or most other drugs. If you are well adjusted, mushrooms are a good - if strange - time. if you are maladjusted then they can be a horrible dreamscape of the damned. Mushrooms are like Yoda's cave in Empire; you only experience what you bring with you.
There's also a chance that you will not want to move and you might pee your pants.
The last time I did mushrooms I was at a party and somebody just took out a huge bag of them and poured them over a table. I was already really drunk. This is the worst possible time to do mushrooms. We all thought the mushrooms were so old that the psychoactives had decomposed. To test our drunken theory, we ate them like candy. We're talking about maybe 2-3 lbs. of 2 year old, dry cyanescens that had just been sitting around in some forgotten corner. Well, they still worked. We were laughing a lot at first, which is the first sign that you know mushrooms are in your system. I began to feel paranoid, so I went to my studio.
I was convinced I was in Richard the III and my father was trying to have me killed. I began yelling pseudo-Shakespearian soliloquies about weird shit. Then I "played" minecraft to kind of relax a little. I stood in a cavern and just looked at HOW AMAZING THE AMBIENCE was. I then realized that all the designers of Minecraft had been planning to create this particular cavern, just for me, at that very moment, and I proclaimed them the greatest geniuses that have ever lived.
As everyone says the best way to do them is in the woods with a bunch of bottled water and good friends. Bring a valium just in case.
Dammit baleen, why do you have the best stories!
That was an awesome story, baleen!
It's all physical for me, I put a hard stop to the mental component of tripping the first couple of times I did it. I had the experience of sharing my nervous system with the hallucinogenic molecules which was borrowing my intelligence to experience sentience. I had the thought "huh, so that's where religion came from, not impressed" and it never happened again. By the end of my time with mushrooms, I was just using them to watch movies better, of which they absolutely excel (Sean of the Dead rocked, Solaris had me grinning like an idiot over its stupid love story, and thanks to poeTV we once watched the Buffy musical while tripping and sang along). I usually got designated "trip parent" because I behaved the most rationally. No one can tell you what tripping is like until you do it though, and I guarantee you wont remember any of your preconceptions if you do.
Basically, sobriety, my most common state of mind in my old age, is the worst trip I've ever been on and it's impossible to come down from. Sometimes I wonder why I do it. Probably because the thought of eating mushrooms now makes me want to instantly vomit.
Nobody can really explain the absurd feeling of "cosmic nowness" that you get when you are tripping balls. They can laugh at how stupid it looks on youtube, but if you're never experienced it you've never really lived.
Shrooms are my favorite. Every time I take them, a benevolent "guest" co-opts my consciousness and whispers "insights" to me until I feel like an oracle or time lord or something. Also, the guest helps me work on my anxiety issues and I experience a remission of symptoms for at least a few months after the experience. They aren't for everyone, however, and generally should not be taken on a whim.
In any case, to answer your question, spike: yes, the guy was a fey goofball before he took the shrooms. Like any mind-altering drug (that isn't a complete dissociative), your behavior will be flavored and influenced by your personality and life experiences.
Seconding baleen's "cosmic nowness" comment. Some things at the intuitive or level of sensation occur that are so strong you could draw an analog to love or an adrenaline rush, where you don't have anything rational to justify except the experience itself. Plus your brain produces really unusual thought than you would have normally which will is entertaining and sometimes insightful/inspiration. I'm glad no one ever filmed any trips I was on, talking some kind of samurai nonsense and laughing too much at little things.
I'm a total vanilla buzkill bore, so all I've ever done is drink alcohol and smoke weed. Once I unknowingly smoked weed with hash.

I wish I had picked "cosmic newness" as my username here instead of a Guitar Wolf reference.

Having this girl pissed-off and stone-sober just standing over you with a camera leveled has got to be the ultimate buzzkill
She doesn't seem to be killing his buzz. Being a tripsitter like this is an awesome thing to do for someone. Mushrooms alone don't make somebody this happy. Mushrooms and good company do.
She doesn't seem too enthusiastic but keep in mind she's signed up for hours and hours of this.

I am at the tail end of a bad mushroom trip. I was tripping way too fucking hard and I spent a significant part of the trip unaware that I had taken a drug trying to figure out if i was psychotic or not. I need to figure out how to make more druggie friends because the one friend I have that goes to festivals is a fucking terrible trip partner. I'm guaranteed at least one bad trip every time I go out with her. It's totally worth it though. Totally worth it.
When I saw there was a video of a tripping person on here I was so fucking glad to find out it wasn't me.
My experience with mushrooms and concerts/festivals is mixed. There is too much weird shit going on and if you want to just relax somewhere it's like having to weed your way through intense mindfucks at every corner. Since it can be extremely annoying to move around in those environments and mushrooms can make your muscles into silly putty I'd just figure out somewhere nice to go to where you can look at stars and laugh a lot without people around.
In any case, I was done with psychedelics 15 years ago and the last trip was a fluke that reminded me that I don't need to mess around with my neurons anymore.
Shakespeare in the park is nice, sit in the back where no one can see you get distracted by little things.
Also, big aquariums, but be careful, people are not an exhibit to anyone but you.
