Timothy Leary's still dead

These glasses are fantastic!
Timothy Leary, the American writer, psychologist, campaigner for psychedelic drug research and use, and icon of youth in the 60s, died on this day in 1996.

Among his last words were the ones he said often throughout his career:

"Why not?"

Forgot to include this yesterday, on the anniversary of the death date of Voltaire, the famous skeptic:

Today’s Deathless Verse:

An atheist goes to meet her maker,
  Will the Lord of Hosts consent to take her?
Make a place at the heavenly table
   For one who considered Him a fable?
Or, pulling the chair out from beneath her,
  Exclaim: “I don’t believe in you, either”?
