This. I don't recall, but they probably reported the actual beverage at some point and over time it was possibly replaced with "Kool-Aid" so people could recognize it better.does that mean it is used in ignorance? like changing facts to make it have more broad appeal?
Hmm, never heard it used that way, but that could be part of it.i mean, i've heard the termin reference to hippies from the 60's that used kool aid with their lsd, and was wondering if it came from there.
it seems, it is always used to reference people that follow something blindly, a reference to jim jones, and then if it was, the term would be fairly inaccurate, and they should be flavor aid drinkers flavor aid is a recognized product name as well, and the correct name.
Props for recommending LSD as a must do.LSD.
Way back the counter revolution of the 60s was by drinking LSD cool-aid. Open your mind kind of stuff. While I love me some LSD the resultant obliviousness to reality of taking it has become synonymous with "drinking the cool-aid". There's many a book written about this movement. Again, not that I would discourage anybody from taking LSD as it's something everybody should do, but the disconnect from reality is what the phrase comes from and it's been around since the 60s.
Somebody google check my response but that's my understanding of it. It came from a time when LSD was not regulated and the hippy buses went across the country to merge in san fran gathering followers with the cool-aid. cool-aid that had yummy LSD-25 in it.
