SWIM has also heard stories of Jimi Hendrix putting three to five hits on the inside of his head-band while playing a concert. The sweat from the outside would cause the acid to absorb through his skin. It seems feasible.
Yes, Hofmann's first trip was the result of an accidental dosing but I was always under the impression that it was transmitted via his hands to his eyes or mouth and was not actually absorbed through his skin, isn't your a skin a barrier that helps keep things out.
Also wouldn't it be more logical to assume that Jimi's LSD laden sweat was simply dripping down his face and into his mouth?
