In 1995 a group of NASA scientists studied the effects of various legal & illegal drugs on house spiders, specifically on the way they weave their webs. The spider high on marijuana did an ok job weaving, but then got bored/distracted & didn't finish. The one on speed went really fast, but without much awareness of the overall picture, leaving gaps. The acid-trippy spider wove a psychedelic, symmetrical web which was very pretty but not great at catching bugs while coffee speaks for itself!
