How do you know if someone drugged you? As a kid I firmly believed that you knew that by checking the bottom of your cup for a dark gooey residue. See there was this TV show I watched as a small child and that is always how they realised someone got drugged. I wish I knew what show that was but that's really the only thing that stuck in my mind. Plus it was the 80's and thanks to the Apartheid sanctions South African TV was a strange mixed bag of whatever old shows someone would sell us that got dubbed into Afrikaans so even if I remembered the title I doubt it would help much! I suspect it may have been a German production from the 60's or 70's but I have no way of confirming that. All I know is that if they suspected someone was drugged they checked the bottom of the mug or glass and boom - dark goopy residue. Once someone snuck them some drugged milk and there was a gooey substance on the milk cap. So for the longest time I assumed that all drugs (when slipped into drinks) left a gooey residue behind and I would always check after I drank something. I had almost forgotten about that completely but then I saw this video:
At first I was like "He he he, this guy in the purple suit sure brings back memories from the movies the Pastor would sometimes show when I was a kid!" and then came those "heavenly reenactment" bits and I was like "Riiiiight, that is kinda weird and corny but it fits the genre I guess" but then the thing after 2:13 happened and I was like "WTF just happened?!? Am I high? Did someone slip me LSD without telling me?". That was when I just had to check the bottom of my mug to be sure...
But no, that actually happened and you watched it happen. And no, that wasn't satire or a Poe, that was 100% real.
