    Caapi cutback?

    Yeah mate, chop when ever it gets out of hand. Dosen't matter time of year in the tropics. Be as aggresive as you want, it'll come back in no time.
  2. I wouldn't mind playing with one of these flow hives. Briliant engineering based on a commercial egg cracking machine. Definatly good for the bees in some ways. However I think there is something in the plastic thing. Here I gave my bees a choice. I placed a bit of plastic foundation in the middle, with a paddle pop stick on each side. As you can see given the choice bee's would rather go to all the effort of building their comb from scratch than use plastic.
  3. Human urine, from a healthy diet, is amazing free organic fert for vegetative growth.
  4. Looking for caupuri cuts, cash or trade. Also Banisteriopsis muricata.
  5. Mate that sounds like an offer.

    Kava in australia?

    Big pharma are all over it. Can buy capsules over the counter at most chemists.
  7. Mate great work. Been doing gardening as part of our youth development program for about 5 years. Don't overlook foolproof, drought hardy food plants, native or otherwise. Kids relate to food. Sorry your in the wrong place for my natives to be much good to you.

    Cloning with Aloe Vera gel

    Interesting. Apparently also contains auxins and gibberellins, not sure if in useful amounts.

    Post your track of the day

    If ya haven't seen it yet, check out this incredibly powerful clip. This is why Oz Hip Hop is dominating that genre.

    Hoja Santa tea?

    Sounds good. Highly invasive, if your somewhere warm and wet enough.
  11. Yeah, our culture does like to pigeon hole things. Never the less some do taste better, some have other problems. Horse is usually on the lean side. It drys easily, so is less versatile or at least requires more skill when preparing. Donkey and I hear cat, stink. Dog also has a distinctive smell. If your growing your own, it's easy to get attached to some. I try to make the breeders pets and call the rest Tbone. Doesn't always work. Sometimes I think an intelligent animal, like a pig or whale, is more likely to know what is happening at the end. There for, feel fear. Probably more important is how it's raised and killed. What do you think would be better for the animal? Farmed or sustainable wild harvest? Obviously nothing rare. Wild harvest is usually a faster more humane end, quality of life varies a lot though. Again depends how its done. Think of a terrified, desperate fish, being dragged by an invisible cord, tied to a sharp piece of metal, stuck through its lip. That is incredibly cruel. Yet is all but, universally accepted. That's a great point. As has already been pointed out, this could be expanded to whale or maybe even farmed elephant. large scale commercial whaling has already been shown to be unsustainable. However is it ethical to waste a beached whale carcass? There is more to the cow vs chicken question. Some animals, like pigs and chickens are more efficient at producing protein. They use less resources, are better for the environment. Marsupials are incredibly efficient. Small critters like chickens, quail, fish, rabbits or bandicoots, also compact the ground less and if properly managed have less impact on waterways. They can also be kept at home by more people, even if they don't have a lot of space and can more easily fit into an integrated polycuture farming system. I think the most environmentally sound systems of producing food.
  12. Mate just pointing out that designing your test for something like this, may not be as easy as you think. Your welcome to solve the problems I presented.
  13. I have experienced both Zool's " indirectly" as well as some of what Glaukus is talking about. Don't forget about empaths. Taken to a high level would be far nicer than simply knowing what they are thinking. I don't know. I recon with a substance induced event, the testing process itself would influence the trip so much it would skew the data. Additionally for me, these sort of things are rare and happen organically.

    Australia is headed down a dark path

    Mate I love your optimism. Bill did have a lot of the solutions. I think there is still a couple of big problems. One is greed and the power that can come from that. Perhaps some sort of cap on wealth, so that individuals or company's can never become more powerful than, nations of people. Then there is the nations them selves. Both nations and for that matter, politicians, are really obsolete in a digital world. Every one could simply vote on every major issue, via an app on their phone. No politicians, no lobbyists, no middlemen at all. True, direct democracy.
  15. Average Joe, I know where you are at all too well. Exercise helps a lot. Music too. So does socializing.I know it is probably the last thing you feel like, but give it a go. Talking to people on here is good. Best is getting out and having some face to face. Mate pm me any time you want a chat, would help me too.
