  1. The article naja naja refers to above has a few references from recent studies (forensics studies from the last few years) which indicate that the extent of cathinone breakdown may have been overestimated - so dried khatmay have active amounts of cathinone, but it likely depends on drying & storage conditions. Apparently some of the confusion was due to forensic samples being stored badly - i.e. khat was seized by cops or customs and shoved into a storeroom, but by the time they got around to analysing it, they couldn't find any cathinone. It would be strange for there to be such a large market for dried product if it's really inactive.


    thank you for clarifying, very informative. I didn't know there was a market for it, i am quite out of touch with things like that

  2. that can be arranged if you truly desire, i don't have any glow in the dark plastic spool at the moment but planning on getting some, if you send over a design i can print it off, keeping in mind 20cm is the max length/width I can print at.


    :) welcome to the forums my friend :)

  3. Sterilisation should be compulsory in developed nations. We don't need to be baby making machines when increased immigration can easily contribute to Australian population growth.


    What a ghastly idea! Your suggestion is paternal, totalitarian, misanthropist, juvenile, simplistic, perverse and just plain silly.

    it is unbelievable and I think you must just be doing a little facetious trolling (giving you the benefit of the doubt by saying this, because I really hope you don't believe that creepy orwellian garbage).

    to reproduce is your only verifiable reason for existing, btw. get with the program it's called evolution

    Why should Australians deny their own biological urges to reproduce and have a family of their own in order to play foster parent to badly traumatized kids from broken societies? Yeah, that will fix everything, can't see any way such a simple plan could go wrong really.


    certain genes should no doubt be kept out of the gene pool where it can be acheived in humane and ethical ways, what we need is more education, and especially of women, because there is a high correlation between women's education and reduced rates of reproduction. Eventually all humanity will grow up and create a super race of genetically enginereed gods, but until then let's all just take a chill pill and drop the mass sterilization and deportation scenarious hey? it's been done and it failed spectacularly

    if someone does not want to reproduce they actually are by definition not fit to pass thier genes to future generations, as it is a maladaptive survival trait (ie would lead to the extermination of the species.) Logically then, we should clearly euthanaze all such unfit specimens and replace them with better ones from somewhere else :rolleyes:

    Sorry for the OT. I have been considering moving to NZ for a while, but it appears that some of my assumptions are incorrect. I thought that cost of living vs salary would work in our favour.


    No way, you get much more here in every respect.. it's because of this thing called the economy. I reckon the best bet is to work hard and invest here where the living is easy and the economy is strong, then buy land there and retire there at 50 lol

  4. if you try to get on the unemployment benefit you have a nine week stand-down period with no income at all, and now you have to pass a drug test


    they are trying to do something similar here: piss tests if you receive benefits. i think it's just so fucking dehumanizing, it's unbelievable that it is actually happening there

    and they even can encourage you to become 'sterlised' so you can't have kids and put more strain on the system.


    wtf? :o

  5. if rule 1 and 2 of fight club is 'you do not talk about fight club'

    then why are they talking about it?

    philosoraptor meme there, surely

    i assume this is in jest (shut up, it's just easier that way.. this is what I choose to believe) but it sounds like a great way to make yourself their target.

    the people i know who make a habit of antagonizing cops get in trouble a lot and have a crime record, I am always calm and reasonable, rarely have trouble and have a clean record.

    of course, it helps that i don't live a life of crime as well

    Once they notice you, Jason realized, they never completely close the file. You can never get back your anonymity. It is vital not to be noticed in the first place.

  6. How long should I wait to give them a water??


    I would still give them a week or two... as far as I'm aware, with cacti when the roots are exposed the outer part that draws up the water dies back and does not grow back until they have been safely underground again for a while, so giving them water straight away is pointless and can also lead to root rot. there's some posts here about it, not sure where though. tbh, with a lot of trichs chances are whatever you do it will be fine

  7. I moved to chch for similar reasons.

    We became homesick and wanted to go back after a short time, but we decided to stay and give it a go.

    Like most things in life, it was a mix of highs and lows, but I had some of the most amazing and transformative experiences of my life there, and am so glad we moved there. Seeds were sown in my mind that are now only beginning to bloom and bear beautiful fruit.

    glad we moved back before the quakes!

  8. Hm. Earlier in this thread I think I was told by several people it was important not to water at all until roots formed? :scratchhead:


    Generally with trichs, if they have calloused and been sitting in the soil for some time, then a bit of moisture and dark (you are right not to pull them up to check) will help to stimulate root growth.

    My usual schedule is to wait to callous for a week or four, put in 'bag moist' soil on a warm day and leave for a couple of weeks, which gives some time in the dark for roots to begin forming.

    Then, on a hot day I give them a thorough watering and do the same thing again a week or so later, and gradually adjust until they are on the same watering schedule as most of the other trichs (ie watered when the soil is dry, or most days in summer). This gives moisture for the incipient roots to reach out for.

  9. i have on offer for free !!!!!!!!! for the next five sab members

    vvvvvvvvvvv p cube mexican dutch king vvvvvvvvvvvvv


    That is very generous mate!

    But how will the trades continue? At least one of the five that accepts your offer needs to offer a print to keep the thread going.

    Also, I am confused about whether you accepted incognito's offer?
