    nucelar energy in oz, have a say

    It's merely a political stunt to hopefully get voted in. It's expensive and complicated to build, and would lock us into expensive power for decades. It would also put us in danger during warfare, not to mention meltdowns etc. Remember how opposed these same people are to EVs because they can explode, well how about our very own Chernobyl? All that for approx 3-4percent of out nations electricity supply. I honestly dont believe they'd even build it, -just promise it and forget it once they're in. They'd make up some big excuse. That's my opinion. A total joke really, but it will earn them votes.

    It could become the Australian syndrome.

    We should take pride in the achievements of previous generations of Oz anti-nuclear activists, and respect the environment.

    psychotropic water kefir

    What are the books called? I have ordered some from Marketplace and I used to brew beer so I do not expect any problems.

    nucelar energy in oz, have a say

    nucelar energy has been in the news a lot lately, what is your opinon? i am worried about two things, that storing nucelar waste safely has not been worked out yet, and that once, australia goe's nucelar, the rest of the world, will dump there nucelar waste, in oz, as oztralia is seen to, "have the right geologial features for this task". germany is planing, to retire the atomic power generators, and we start with this flawed technology? "dud" en, and other politicians, might have as well an other not voiced agenda, being that there own uranium share would go up, and money can be made by storing nucelar waste from all over the world in australia.

    psychotropic water kefir

    ok, big update! a friend of mine did lend me two books about probiotic (fermented drinks) which inspired me greatly. seems that some people use only sugar for the primary fermentation, and only add fruits (simmered down in a little water and sugar) at the botteling (second fermentation stage). this would keep the granules much cleaner which could be a big advantage (fruit pulp is hard to seperate from the granules), but i still add fruit to the initial fermentation, as it produces a better brew. my current batch had raspberries and a little sugar added at botteling stage. the book said the fruit sugars (fructose?) will produce the fizzyness of the drink and i agree. thats why i add fructose in form of ginger and citrus fruits to the first fermentation, already. maybe thesecond fermentation is enhanced, by already fruits beeing added at the first step. i found out that the granules can be stored in the fridge (not freezer) once they have been cleaned, for a few months. as well i had a bottle of second fermentation brew in the fridge for maybe 2-3 months and it was delicious, and a little psychotropic.. i have not yet experimented with ginger out of a jar, but reading suggested that water kefir granules don't like metal, and detergent residue. what i observed, but never read about, is that water kefir seems to be able to keep fruits and ginger and galangel very fresh (it is conserved well) so maybe it's good to use the same ginger for several brews (i use ginger thinly sliced currently). i still havent brewed by adding some of our "more beloved" ethono plants, but the fact, that the second fermented drink keeps very well, in the fridge for a long time, gives me hope it could work. in other words, i always thought the added organic would be in contact with the water kefir for a too short periode, to facilitate a transfer of active compounds. my initial excitement, was brought on by the thought that, similar like "spit kava" the granules would help to extract compounds. i would like to add kava or withania to a brew, would be nice if it would work. withania is quite heat stable so one could add this plant, in form of a simmered water decoction.

    Free cacti

    I honestly do not know - but I assume that if cut one off and grafted it it should just keep its current morphology rather then simple reverting.

    Free cacti

    Awesome job Ish, I hope they get to excel come summer time. Do you know if you topped one column of the cristata and graft it it would continue growing as a crist? Or continue growing as a column?

    Free cacti

    Update: The cacti are doing really well. I re-potted them on a very non-organic substrate, but I have been feeding them heavily every week with urine and fertilizer. They have all gotten their colour back; they are still a little yellow in spots but looking way better, and they are showing new green growth at the top. When spring comes, they will be solid. A big thanks to @Siggor

    Pot without paranoia

    The smell of limonene could be sufficient to induce synergistic effects: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/274641213_Physiological_and_psychological_effects_of_olfactory_stimulation_with_D-Limonene The use of essential oils and incense is well-known. Rätsch has a section on incense in his psychedelics encyclopaedia. I've come across Syrian Rue in a Persian incense (with other spices and resins), probably for good reason. Brugmansia blossoms are said to be psychoactive, with caution advised.

    Pot without paranoia

    Experience Report I was suffering a flare-up of my joint pain, and I opted to dose with my prescribed medical cannabis THC/CBD mix. The dosage was 1 ml of oil consumed orally. I have used up to 3 ml in the past. I have also been recovering from a congested chest, so I sprinkled some eucalyptus oil on my pillow before falling asleep. The combination of medical cannabis and eucalyptus oil seems to have produced the most intense visuals ever experienced—a world in the form of a vintage sepia-tone 1940/1950's illustrated graphics novel overlaid with coloured poker dots and grids, all set to a thumping, audible techno sound track. Everything moved very fast, and there was no way to slow or control the experience; it was like small vignettes of insight. However, recalling the details is hazy the next day. I took the medical cannabis at 8 p.m., went to bed, and felt the visual and auditory hallucinations come on by 9 p.m., which lasted about 4 hours to about 1 a.m. Then I slept well until 8 a.m., awakening feeling sedated but good. The whole experience was almost psychedelic, but not as meaningful or substantive. More of a roller coaster ride. A quick search says that eucalyptus oil has a monoterpenoid like α-Pinene, Myrcene, Humulene and eucalyptol which is also found in cannabis itself. This made me wonder: has anyone found that scents or essential oils could modify the experience just by inhalation? It would be much like smoking cannabis with other herbs for synergistic effects.

    The Hope And Despairs Of The Human Species

    @fyzygy - I renamed the post to The Hope And Despairs Of The Human Species - Hopefully that its better. While their are instances of hope found in acts of compassion in the world. And my deletes post about population collapse is one of those signs of hope even that in the short term it will be bloody and brutal. And I have read a few books by people claiming that we are on the cusp of an evolutionary step forward as a species in our consciousness - I just got the feeling that these people live in their ivory towers of privilege looking out upon the world with rose colored classes. I do believe that we are coming to a reset point where we will either die as a species or we will have a major culling of the species and we will come out on the other side and if we are lucky we will take out next evolutionary step as a species in our consciousness. But nothing short of near extinction will wake up the shuffling masses. I was watching a thing about our chances of surviving AI sentience. We have a 60 - 70% chance that a sentient AI will exterminate the human race because we as a species would be consider a threat to its on survival.
  20. Two things give me cause for hope. One is seeing demonstrations of everyday compassion (like a YouTube video documenting care of an abandoned, congenitally deformed dog that I saw recently). The other is being exposed to attitudes of ecological respect and humility, such as among First Nations cultures. Occasionally, I am still taken by surprise at the compassion, generosity and humility in this world. There is goodness in people, as evidenced "behind the scenes" of this very forum. But none of that, apparently, is very newsworthy. I think our modern culture is addicted to -- we feed on -- crisis of one sort or another. As suggested above, the so-called "extraterrestrial imperative" is the very definition of a cynical, fake (and potentially genocidal) optimism. It's toxic toys for billionaire boys, a black hole of interplanetary vandalism that sucks in even the brightest of minds. In any case, we shouldn't really despair. For as Alan Watts says, a chicken is merely an egg's way of becoming another egg. (Even if humanity's goose is cooked, so to speak.) It -- and perhaps even life -- goes on. Is it possible to change the title of this thread? I don't wish to be constantly reminded of the sentiment.

    The Hope And Despairs Of The Human Species

    @Wood Chuck I have observe that even a "better future for your children" is not a true motivator - I think beneath the platitudes people mouth their is the idea "well it will not matter because I will be dead" - I have heard this so often recently. Deep down people have lost all hope for the future, and this feeds into the post I deleted above - hope is lost and despair only keeps spreading and this is having a huge influence on people not having kids and how we are seeing an implosion of the worlds population. Anyone who thinks that we will simple move to another planet is simple delusional. Sci-fi has put this fantasy of space travel in people minds without any understanding of the challenges. We might have the capacity to move and sustain a few hundred people to Mars in artificial domes, this would be only the top 0.00001% who will go. Elon and few of his buddies. Then next possible planet that we could move to would be Proxima Centauri b and Alpha Centauri system and that would be a 100 plus year journey for a multi generational ship and we just do not have the will power, technology, or money to build such a ship not to mention that no human has lived multiple lifetimes in the void of space and any that do would need genetic modification to survive the journey. Therefor they would be a distinct branch of space fairing humans separate from us on Earth. Not to even mention that even if we get to Proxima Centauri b that we could even survive their, threats from existing life form both big and small or Proxima Centauri b simple a toxic to humanoid life.

    Water Kefir

    I looking to find water kefir granules anyone any spare? Found someone on Facebook selling it cheaply 1/2 cup for $5 which is good. If I can get them going I might be able to share here.

    Acacia berlandieri/ rigidula

    It's an interesting question. A lot of confusing info out there on the web.
  24. A better life for your children, is often thought of as financial and if we fuck up this planet, we will just shift to another planet and fuck it up and when we fuck it, move to another and so on, we need a mindset change to look after what we have got. Obtaining power from a product we can`t dispose of properly, micro plastics, climate change, etc are born from money, that is an evil necessity and that has no limits.
