Around 1994 or so we made a trip to Southern California for my husband’s job. Taking a couple extra days for fun, we visited Paramount Studios for their 3 hour walking tour. We were able to walk the quaint little streets which were the background for many movies and television shows over the years. We saw the bench which was part of the beginning of every Mission Impossible TV show, and many other interesting spots. The movie, “Patriot Games” had just finished filming, and we were able to walk through a mock-up of the kitchen. Glancing at the floor, there was a piece of MASKING TAPE which simply said “Harrison”. The tour guide was willing to take us into their props building, providing it was open for tours that day. Evidently not all tour groups were able to see this interesting place. Once inside, we were taken into yet another large room and were told we could look and touch, but if anything ever disappeared, this special place would be taken off the tours forever. So we wandered around a space that was much like an antiques store. Small aisles, stuff everywhere, just sitting out on tables or counters, waiting for those needing stuff to decorate a set with to come choose. I remember most, a wall of wooden drawers with labels on each one made of …..get this, MASKING TAPE!! Real high quality labeling in this unique, fascinating place! One was labeled “Silver Spoons” and upon opening, I found about a dozen mis-matched silver spoons. Another was marked “Passports” and inside this one were several passports. The most incredible part of this venture was learning that at that time, the man who ran this room of set props had everything “cataloged” in his head. He could find you anything you wanted, and nothing was catagorized on computer. This was one of the most interesting and enjoyable tours we ever had. I hope they are still doing them!
MDMA overdose symptoms vary widely due to the involvement of multiple organ systems. Some of the more overt overdose symptoms are listed in the table below. The number of instances of fatal MDMA intoxication is low relative to its usage rates. In most fatalities MDMA was not the only drug involved. Acute toxicity is mainly caused by serotonin syndrome and sympathomimetic effects.  MDMA's toxicity in overdose may be exacerbated by caffeine, with which it is frequently cut (mixed with to increase volume).  A scheme for management of acute MDMA toxicity has been published focusing on treatment of hyperthermia, hyponatraemia, seratonin syndrome, and multiple organ failure.
