We already asked you which science fictional drug you'd like to spend a weekend bingeing on, and now The Onion A.V. Club is reminding us there are way more bizarre drugs in science fiction than even we'd remembered. The Onion's list of fictional drugs includes a number of scifi standbys: Soma, Synthehol, Melange, Substance D, Nuke (from Robocop 2), Snow Crash and Mimezine (from Wild Palms.) What's really great, though, is they throw in a few drugs from real-life urban legends... which are just as strange as the ones Philip K. Dick and friends came up with.
