    What do you eat?

    In the process of converting to Vegetarian. I still occasionally eat fish ( only fish that I catch myself which I have an abundant access to ) I chose to follow this path for a multitude of reasons. Spiritual, environmental and health. ( it may be psychosomatic but my meditation practices have really accelerated since I have changed my diet ) I'm still undecided on the vegan lifestyle. I suppose as I progress to full vegetarian I may give it a go and see how it works for me. I think that way I can objectively decide on It's merits. I think I may end up eating eggs from my own freerange chickens and boycotting dairy for various reasons. I have been following this guy on youtube. He is such a legend - but anyone arguing that a vegan lifestyle does not allow a healthy existence should watch this guy. Mind you - he does supplement with vitamin B shots and eats around 30 bananas a day. LOL http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lNVa33fuLD0 the guy is testament to being both vegan and being in peak physical health and at the very least is quite entertaining. I really like WB's approach to meat eating. So much more sustainable and healthy. All of this is really just a personal opinion and what seems right to me at this point in time. I'm not up for a debate as there is no "right or wrong" and It is definitely quite a divisive topic. ( edit ) I hear what your saying about juicing Ceres, I recently purchased a really good cold press juicer and I would recommend it to anyone )

    Looking For Heirloom Veggie Seeds

    Got heaps... pretty much anything you want to grow. All good handpicked organic heirloom and free. Pm me
  7. That is the book I have almost finished Sally. I am looking now into the debunking of his "science" and you make a valid point from what I can see. It was not this alone that want to make me turn to a vegetarian diet. Watching Samsara with dilated pupils was the clincher for me.
  8. Interesting article Tripsis. I am currently reading the China study. It studies the relationship between the consumption of animal products (including dairy) and chronic illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancers of the breast, prostrate and bowel .The authors conclude that people who eat a whole plant diet—avoiding all animal products, including beef, pork, poultry, fish, eggs, cheese and milk, and reducing their intake of processed foods and refined carbohydrates—will escape, reduce or reverse the development of numerous diseases. I am currently in the process of turning vegetarian ( I still occasionally eat fish ). A vegan diet is my aim but I think It is something I have to work my way into. I can't imagine life without eggs and cheese - well not just yet anyway.
  9. You mean from the excerpt I copy pasted or the the whole article ? I know you mean no disrespect man I don't endorse his views but I did find it interesting. But as you know all too well At0m, I am so uneducated when It comes to IT and you definitely know your shit. What do you foresee as the future for bitcoin ? It's so volatile.. but I have been thinking of making a large investment next time it takes a big dive. Or should I invest In Physical gold/silver ? maybe I could employ you as my financial consultant ;)

  12. The Strategy to Make Bitcoin the Global Currency To replace the present fiat monetary system, the global financial elites have employed the following strategies:  To demonise Gold and depress the true value of gold;  To promote Bitcoin as the ultimate alternative currency by price manipulation; and  Energy (oil, gas & computer power) to back Bitcoin. In the first phase of this grand strategy, the Controllers of Bitcoin have decided to focus on the markets of the developed world. This is common sense as the technological infrastructure is already in place in the developed world. In this phase, the Controllers would by-pass the global banking institutions and will focus on the existing alternative payment systems widely used in internet marketing such as PayPal, E-Bay, MoneyGram etc. This is because, Bitcoin can only survive and grow in the internet environment as it is a technology-based currency. Bitcoin cannot be used in the same way as fiat paper money is used. It is not a “cash” currency. It is digital! This makes sense because in our daily lives, more and more transactions are being facilitated through the internet, our mobile phone, credit cards etc. Paper money is used less and less. In the Second phase, and after assuming total or near total control of all internet markets, only Bitcoin would be accepted as ―legal tender‖ for payment of goods and services. No Bitcoin, no sales for goods and services! The Controllers would not need any laws to compel full compliance as in the present case with fiat paper money when laws must be enacted to compel acceptance of paper money as ―legal tender‖ in full discharge of all debts! In the final phase, it is my belief that banks will be transformed from their present form and structure to be inter-alia ―Bitcoin Exchanges or Clearing House‖. This is one of the items in the Controllers‘ Wish List. This is indeed a very elegant structure and it will surely appeal to all reformers who are against central banks, the present structure of global banking institutions and paper fiat money. The call to end government / Central Bank control of money would no doubt be greeted with enthusiasm and relief given the present policies of the FED and other central banks enriching Wall Street and the 0.01 per cent of the global population. The debasing of global currencies is being carried out with the approval and connivance of the global financial elites as a prelude to the use of Bitcoin because the present financial architecture can no longer be sustained. The debt-based fiat money system is so toxic that it is beyond repair (source) http://www.globalresearch.ca/will-digital-currency-replace-the-us-dollar-wall-street-strategy-to-make-bitcoin-the-global-currency/5361021
  13. I thought this interview was so amazing it deserved It's own thread instead of going into the youtube thread. I am sure that the majority here are fully aware of all the points he raises but his quick wit and delivery style really ram the message home. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8yYJ_oV6xk Much respect for this man !

  15. I have decided to do a fun little giveaway. It will be interesting to see how much interest this stirs. I am not returning to trading, this is just a giveaway before I disappear into the izness. ( just waiting on settlement over outstanding trades ) AAAnyway...... I'm in the process of drastically downsizing my cactus collection. I have up for grabs in this little competition a very very rare and sought after plant indeed. I have a very healthy Eulychnia castanea V.spiralis. I have never seen one of these offered up for sale before. The plant initially showed discoid growth, which reverted to monstrose growth and is now pushing out some amazing spiral growth ( so showing all 3 traits of the eulychnia castanea's possible mutations as can be seen herehttp://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&frm=1&source=web&cd=7&ved=0CDgQFjAG&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cactus-art.biz%2Fschede%2FEULYCHNIA%2FEulychnia_castanea%2FEulychnia_castanea_varispiralis_mostruosa%2FEulychnia_castanea_varispiralis_mostruosa.htm&ei=Oc6RUtSsJqnZigfj1YCAAQ&usg=AFQjCNGJ-HRHSTXVElV_v8igwZ86U_yI5A&bvm=bv.56988011,d.dGI ) The plant measures in at just under 50cm. I know of many collectors both here and outside of this forum who have been chasing one of these with no success for many years. Here is your chance to own one free of charge ! All you have to do is participate in a little game for my amusement. I have been researching a subject that a close friend brought to my attention. I'm sure that everyone here can recall the Port Arthur massacre down here in Australia. The biggest massacre from a single shooter on a civilian population on record in our Country. I had a few things brought to my attention from a close friend. He told me that he was completely certain that the events of that day were planned and executed by nefarious forces and in no way could it have even POSSIBLY been the work of Mr Martyn Bryant. Crazy right ? Now I have always been one to keep an open mind and have been known to entertain the possibility of seemingly outrageous claims of conspiracy and obfuscation. But when I initially heard his suspicions on the events that transpired that day I found it very hard to not instantly dismiss them before listening to his argument. I think that may be because - "if" in fact he happened to be correct the implications are quite frankly downright scary. BUT I make a conscious effort to keep an open mind that is decided on verifiable fact and try to use my rationale and intellect to draw conclusions on the event in question. So I found myself reading the work of a man called Joe vasilis and other concerned parties and quite frankly I was amazed at what I was reading. So... here is the comp guidelines : I'm going to provide a link to some little known info about that day and I want to start a little debate. To win this competition I want you to read the information I provided in the link below. The prize of this beautiful eulychnia will be awarded to the person who presents ( in my opinion ) the most convincing argument either "for OR against" this crazy crackpot tinfoil theory. The link that I provide is just there to get you started. By all means - research elsewhere and source your information as you deem fit. For the point of this competition lets say I am completely undecided. It could be ten words or it could be a thorough analysis - as long as it is convincing. Im very interested to hear peoples take on this and i am sure the prize will coax those that would normally brush over this post to perhaps have a bit of a read and a think about it. I will close the comp at 2200 EST 07/12/2013 - most convincing argument IN MY OPINION wins ! OK GO .... Here she is :D ( a bit of motivation for those not interested in crazy conspiracy theories ) the link-http://www.whale.to/b/viallspam.html

    Giveaway with a twist

    Sally, you have a pretty sound knowledge of the goings on. Looks like you win Not to say anyone was wrong or right. Just a twisted little social experiment on my behalf. I'd love to go into what I think were possible motives but Something is telling me I should let sleeping dogs lie Cheers to all others that competed. PM me ya details Sally... ill get it on the way
  20. I actually thought it was a full on systemic. Turns out I was mistaken . It still sounds slightly toxic to me from what I read on it. I would rather mist with metho and apply sulphur or apply biological controls.
  21. Hi Kate I would try and avoid anything like that at all. EVEN IF your plants are ornamental only. http://www.shaman-australis.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=33634&hl=%2Bspider+%2Bmites Here is one of a number of threads In regards to possible treatments. Good luck
