  1. Today
  2. I know a number of cases in which people have indulged in nitrous oxide to the point of B12 deficiency.
  3. Sounds horrific @waterboy 2.0 i like the direction this thread is going. A few stories to remind everyone of the danger that can happen when indulging. I don’t want my lil write up to come across as a “hey everybody nangs are safe as, so fkkn cut loose on em” type thing. Too much of a good thing can be... well, bad.
  4. Yesterday
  5. My caapi vine needs a trim, so I will have heaps of fresh caapi to trade in the coming days. Also have a heap of dried vine of various thickness. Interested in plants, seeds, spores, art, or anything you have to offer really.

    Don't let me put you off, I just found the smoke wasn't pleasant. You might like it.

    Hmmmmmm. I see where I went wrong here. I'll try anything twice though. No good, Glaukus? That sucks. I read a few reports stating they were really pleasant. I was hoping to make some dry herb vape blends but may end up just chucking this ingredient out if there's no effect and it's flavour is unpleasant. Thanks for the reply.
  8. Lol... Have similar tales to G My warning. Had to break into a mates house and save him after he passed out strapped into the medical mask and tank and "anesthetized" himself for nearly two days.... Read that as near asphyxiation, and incurred a mild brain injury. Edit- yet to come across anyone unconscious or injured that Colour since

    Don't beat ya self up about it mate. We've all let things get a bit out of hand. Think of it this way, if by telling your story just one person doesn't have a similar experience then you've turned an unfortunate experience into a fucken good deed. Onwards and upwards my man
  10. Thanks EG, I am aware of the magnifying glass-effect of the sprayed pesticides/fungicides and avoid it alltogether. I sprayed a small trich to test the effects of tau-fluvalinate and will post again to share the results. As far as I understand certain chemicals (like pyrethrin) can trigger a reaction that results in breakdown of cactus tissue into brown or black mush. My plants spontaneously develop these patches of black blisters with exudates very similar to what people report after chemical applications. Makes me wonder if all cases of "rots" are really due to infections or cacti are just exposed to chemicals that disagree with their tissues.
  11. Hey mate, it looks perfectly fine now. Leave it as it is. If you keep it at a not too cold place with low air humidity and lots of fresh air it should be alright. If not post it again. About the pesticide. Haven't used it before, but definitely possible it causes burns. Don't ever use pesticides in direct sunlight. Also make sure to follow the dosage recommendations religiously. Bye EG
  12. Hi all, I bought a dual-action insecticide/fungicide mixture containing myclobutanil as fungicide and tau-fluvalinate as the pesticide. I read about this tau-fluvalinate and it turns out that it is a pyrethroid insecticide, meaning it is a different molecule but structurally similar to pyrethrin. I read here that pyrethrin burns cacti but couldn't find info on tau-fluvalinate. Anyone had their cacti burn after using this chemical? Cheers *I went systemic to treat some nasty rot caused by mold possibly due to the long time a cutting spent in postage. I noticed the woody tissue in the vascular bundle was somewhat affected even though the rest of the section looked pretty healthy: This is the vascular bundle after my first cut (notice the darkened woody tissue) And this the vascular bundle after my second cut Do you think this is a legit cause of concern or should I just sulfur it and let it dry ? I heard the remaining fungus can move up through the woody tissue so I would like to make it 100% clean.
  13. Yeah the airy bones sound troubling for sure. I guess with lighter bones you could move a bit quicker and thus pull off some even more daring nos bottle heists. I dunno, trying to find the positives but scrapping the barrel here. Live n learn
  14. Nitrous does not lend itself to moderation! People will refuse to let go of the mask until they literally become unconscious. And even then I've seen someone wrap themselves around a cylinder and hug it whilst unconscious! Seriously though, I do worry about my bone density, there is a medical condition that used to be mostly confined to dentists, where the bones become porous and brittle, turns out too much nitrous turns them into chalky aero bars.

    Only just threw some roots in perlite but has been pimping this little beauty the whole time.
  16. thanks for sharing @Glaukus. what an epic tale! Ive had a nang cracker frozen to my finger but stuck to the lips sounds soooooo fucked up! Everything in moderation ay.
  17. Ok, here's my nang tales... When I was a teenager back in the late 80s/ early 90s, we started on the bulbs. Then in the early 90s at uni, I graduated to the next level. My buddy and I planned our first mission like a military operation. We cut our way into the medical gas bunker and made off with the prize, an 8000 litre blue tank. We struggled to carry it, but we made it back to safe base. Then the madness began. We went to a rave up near peats ridge, dropped acid, and found the cops had shut it down as we arrived. Shit. Plan B. We knew we had no chance of making it back to Sydney in one piece by then, so we settled on a waterfront carpark in woy woy. An entire night of nitrous acid fueled mayhem ensued. At one point I found myself standing waist deep in the water, just came to like that. Anyway, this pattern continued over many months, we hit the bunker several times until they really beefed up security. So we stepped up to hospitals. Raided a few hospitals of their sweet creamy gas, and partied very very hard. My buddy was living in a residential college, and one day had a cylinder on his bed, lying flat. He couldn't be bothered with any balloons or such and decided to suck straight from the valve. Bad idea. Basic physics really, the level of gas was high, so the liquid level was above the level of the valve. Liquid straight to gaseous phase equals extreme cold. He froze his mouth to the valve. Had to rip his lips free from the metal. Then, the pain started. He was too scared to leave his room, being lipless and all, and he needed pain relief. So he sucked about 6000 litres of nitrous down over the course of a few days. I shudder to think of his bone density now. And I continued. I arranged a raid on a veterinary surgery, and made off with the grand prize. A 17500 litre tank. We had a party the next night, and there was a nitrous room. At first we had a scuba regulator with 4 masks, but after a few hours, we just shut the door, turned on the tank and let the acid and nitrous really take hold. Needless to say, this is not recommended behaviour. By the morning, the tank was dry, and there was a mound of snow round the base that had condensed from the heat exchange. I think that was probably the last time I really went on a nitrous bender, I knew I had to stop by this stage or I'd end up dead. There is nothing. And I mean nothing that compares with excellent acid and medical grade nitrous. I used to travel to past lives, future lives, other people's lives... Ahhh, so many more tales in the vault
  18. @Slocombe I’m not a nang veteran by any stretch but when in rome ya know. Only recently have I learnt to appreciated them for what they are. Hense the spiel. I’ve had hospital tank n2o once before. Some next level twangs. Any stigma around them needs to gtfo I reckon.
  19. It was the jerking off I felt guilty about

    I tried smoking them back in the 90s, worst tasting smoke ever.
  21. Never enjoyed nangs all that much myself. I reckon one of the hospital tanks would be different...

    My Kratom warning.

    The hard part is how stupid i was about the whole approach to it. I should know better than this !!! Im not going to tell everyone not to take it. Its like anything , Moderation and being sensible is the key. I was an Idiot.

    My Kratom warning.

    Jesus that's a hardcore story Mr BC. Never tried kratom but will definitely heed your warning. Hope the tc seizure was a one off and all the best with the kratom taper. It sounds like you have a great attitude towards getting off it, I'm sure you'll pull through and come out on top bro. Take care mate.

    Good luck mate, thankfully I don't much enjoy the feel of krat.. sounds like a slog to get off.
