Don't take them! They're all that's holding up her head! I usually associate Floating Head Syndrome with the fifties, but apparently it was a problem before that.

LSD was new and trendy in certain circles in the late 40s. Cary Grant was tripping at the shrink's and extolled the experience. Plus, there was a taste for trippy shit even before that. Check out the 1943 movie The Gang's All Here if you don't believe me.

I believe you. LSD was promoted as a legitimate form of therapy for awhile there and it certainly had some potential. [Suppressing urge to launch into healthcare and politics rant.]

I totally fear floating heads. They were still doing them in the 70s and they used to bother me TERRIBLY as a kid.

Oh, me too! You used to see them a lot on album covers, too.
