If you are going to pretend you are a Warlock or that you have Tigerblood, you have to have some clue what these things are. They are based on an arcane system of magic that Charlie is a very high degree Adept in. (He actually kind of outed them based on a bit of a dispute. I am also a Sacred Brother, but they've been charging me dues for years and so far they haven't gotten me laid once since I joined so fuck them. Here are some of our secrets.)
"Tiger blood" is not something that all of us have. It is not an energy drink or a hot dog. It is reserved only for a select few- those who have demonstrated through "radical" acts their ability to "roll" in a way that would render most other people, including famed party animals like Mick Jagger, "droopy-eyed, armless children."
So don't just go around saying you have tiger blood. You need to prove that shit. Again: it can only be proven through the regular performance of radical acts which will leave the other people involved forever changed. Some might even say "scarred," but scarring is a common part of the Initiatory Process. I expect that in the coming years there will be a huge uptick in overdoses as some of you non-Tigerblood wannabees heart's explode all over your pimped out Honda's. That's alright. Our planet-mother-tree could use a little pruning.
