“My first big recipe was shark repellant that I mixed in a bathtub for the Navy, for the men who might get caught in the water.”

Before she mastered the art of French cooking, Julia Child cooked up shark repellent while working for the precursor to the CIA as a covert operative during World War II. Sharks kept unintentionally setting off underwater explosives meant for German U-boats — until Child came up with an inventive recipe that saved the day.

MDMA is known as Ecstasy because when Michael Clegg (early dealer/Texas group) brought a sample to Bob McMillen, an ex-marijuana dealer he wanted to help him distribute it at scale, they listened to the album “Ecstasy “ by Deuter as they were coming up. Clegg had originally wanted to call the drug “Therapy” to market it. McMillen came up with name “Ecstasy “ as a (much better) alternative and sold so much, so quickly, using that name, that it stuck.

I mean, “Therapy”, ffs.
