    Kambo gone wrong?

    I've just been reading about this (in fact, it's my reason for checking SAB today). In both cases it is clear the organisers decided not to bring in medical assistance when they clearly should have (and were probably hoping these people would just pull through so they could avoid outside scrutiny and some difficult conversations). This Guardian report on Jarrad Antonovich is saying that after his death, one of the people involved told his partner that he died "beautifully" and that “the koalas were making a special sound known to the Elders when the land accepts a spirit”. Dickheads.

    Cheers, but hoping for domestic.

    Salvia recognita

    I'll throw my hat in the ring for S Recognita seeds. Good for a seed swap, or $.

    Photos of mushrooms prints please

    Hey, here's a picture Suggest you caption it "Portobello Mafia". If you get sick of people asking what it means, set up a QR code pointed at this link and have it tattooed somewhere else on your body.

    Options For Potent Anti-Anxiety Botanical

    SAB did sell a product called 'Zonk' that worked amazingly. It hasn't been available for some time (or so I believe), but you might find something of interest in its ingredient list (pasted below). "Contains extracts of Scullcap, Blue Lotus, Hops and Celandine."

    Site offline?

    Yep, I got the 404s, so it's not just you. Can't claim any insight into what the issue was.

    Scott Morrison has dementia

    Today, Scott Morrison said that the jobseeker rate (formerly known as Newstart) was $46 per-week. He's cooked, time to put him in a nursing home. https://www.news.com.au/national/federal-election/prime-minister-scott-morrison-wont-rule-out-election-deal/news-story/234ac33d95b393185e9c7e4490d21343

  9. Came across this, thought it was interesting. Not sure where to put it, but it doesn't seem to belong in the chill space. Google podcast link.

    Chernobyl Survivors

    Got a 404 error on that link, but I think I tracked down the same article. Interested stuff.... https://www.bbc.com/future/article/20190701-why-plants-survived-chernobyls-deadly-radiation
  11. It seems like an interesting decision by the FSANZ to describe foods with thousands of years of use as a ''novel" food that "doesn't have a significant history of consumption". Surely they could employ some Chinese speaking scientists to trawl through the relevant literature, rather than blanket banning things and waiting until someone is motivated and cashed up enough to ask for an assessment.

    Commercial Importation of Kava

    The Fiji Kava website has powdered root powder for pre-order. My guess it's similar to the 'instant kava' stuff that was going around just before (and immediately after) the Kava ban. No personal importation by individuals allowed, but I consider this a win. If it starts getting popular in Australia, that's certainly a win for Fiji provided there isn't another moral panic.

    Australia is headed down a dark path

    Just on the whole voting via an app thing... The closest I can see to that is Jacqui Lambie, who has been using polls to guide (not decide) how she votes in Parliament. Seems like a reasonable approach given whatever people say won't ever be completely representative. I don't think people are engaged or informed enough that I'd support Timothy Leary's approach for day-to-day decision making.

    If people stopped voting in the Liberal and National Parties that'd be nice.
