Turn on, tune in, drop out ... cash in: Watch Timothy Leary pitch his video game

Remember back in the day -- the day being the 1960s and 70s -- when Dr.Timothy Leary was the prophet of LSD, urging us all to "Turn on, tune in, drop out" and was described as "the most dangerous man in America" by President Richard Nixon? It somehow escaped my attention that is the mid-1980's Leary was trying to cash in with his video game/computer program "Mind Mirror". The game allows you to "try on" different personalities. If you're interested in trying it  there is a Facebook app that approximates the program. Watch the good doctor describe his program in this video.
