    Reading Material

    The producers guide is good, apart from the fact that pages ten and eleven are not there. Any chance of getting them Evil?
  5. What about SIN? I had a black female lab once, her name was Five. My canine companion at present is a little female Stafforshire bull terrier named Geisha, she is a loyal friend and staunch protector of my daughter. I never really thought much of staffies until I got her, now i dont think i could have any other sort of dog.

    Any finds in aussie yet?

    My god do you city folk have it easy with all your "take away" facilities. All you have to do is go for a stroll to the park or your nearest shopping centre. Us poor hunters in the country have to fight our way throught bracken, blackberries and thick bush whilst trudging through the forest. At least i get fit this time of year. anyhoo i got an email off a friend from Melbourne last night, not a bad haul, 4.5kg, but he said it was a fraction of the total that was there(he gets a little jumpy picking in a busy carpark!)
  7. That is taking it a bit far BM. I am 100% sure that the Lotus,Koi,water and fire design that is on my forearm is an original. Nobody on this planet has it(except me) or has ever had it on their body, the reason is because i designed it myself. I have always had an interest in tattoos ever since i can remember, even as a child i was constantly reprimanded for drawing on myself. I could not however, bring myself to wear a tattoo designed by another(apart from the design mentioned earlier in the thread), unless that person was extremely close to me and an excellent artist. I wear my art with pride and my skin is just another canvas that needs to be filled.

    wavy gravy

  9. This is also on another forum, apparently it took the fuzz five years to get enough evidence to bust it. NewsChannel 5 Exclusive: Pictures Reveal Inside of Drug Cave Posted: 12/29/2005 9:49:00 PM Updated: 1/4/2006 4:38:50 PM NewsChannel 5 Exclusive: Pictures Reveal Inside of Drug Cave What police found inside this Trousdale County cave led to the biggest pot bust in Middle Tennessee history. Now, pictures are showing details of the sophisticated set up. From the outside, the house looks like a beautiful vacation home, but investigators say it was just a prop and what it concealed is right out the movies. More than 1,000 marijuana plants were grown deep underground. The house was built on top of the natural cave, but investigators say no one lived there. It wasn't even furnished. But inside the house there is a secret passageway into the cave. The interior of the house is just on the other side of the door. A corridor leads from the hidden doorway into the cave. The corridor has cinderblock walls and a concrete ceiling and floor. The 40 foot long sloping corridor leads into the cave that stretches 250 feet. There are offices, living quarters, and a growing area. The office space comes first, then a living area furnished with three or four colorful bunk beds for camping out in the cave, and a restroom with a shower and plenty of toiletries. Behind the restroom is a kitchen with a fully stocked pantry, air conditioning and microwave. All the comforts of home, only this cave was all business. A starter room houses 500 to 600 small marijuana plants. Each just about six to 12 inches tall. The next area has plants nearly ready to harvest. 500 to 600 plants as tall as six feet. Each had its own irrigation system. The lights and climate control kept the air at the perfect temperature: 87 degrees. Just behind the growing area is the work space with all the equipment to keep the operation running. And in case the growers had to make a run for it, they built an escape route. It’s 150 yards from the cave to the surface. A hydraulic jack lifts a trap door, which is hidden with a boulder. The escape hatch lets out just a few steps away from the home where anyone driving by would have no idea what lies beneath. Three men are charged with growing marijuana in that cave. None of them actually lives in Middle Tennessee, and investigators don't think the drugs were sold in Trousdale County. Investigators say the men were growing enough marijuana to make $6 million to $8 million a year.
  10. Yeah, lol at the "plants". Just goes to show that money can get you a wicked setup but you cant buy a green thumb. god damn commercial shit.

    Any finds in aussie yet?

    Well i finally got a chance to get out yesterday. Just in time to catch the first flush of wavy cap subs, not much activity in other patches yet but it looks like its gonna be an awesome season.
  13. A mate of mine got the Eye of Ra tattoo a few years back, now he is a freemason haha. I will only get tatts that i designed myself, with one exception; The bee faced shaman of Tassili-n-Ajjer. He is next on the list.
  14. Yeah, thats how you soon find the world after a few months on the ice. I will say one good thing about it though, it ended my ten year love affair with amphetamines. I only used ice in the last 3 or 4 years of the ten, but it did more damage in the first year than all the other "pure" i had ever used. If i have any sort of amphetamines these days(which i dont) i pretty much scatter straight away and cannot face the world. Its like it has the opposite effect, it still keeps me awake but very introverted\paranoid so there is no way it is enjoyable, so i leave the shit alone.

    mushies safety info needed

    I found this on another site if its any use to you. Psilocybin and psilocin are part of the tryptamine family (indole C8H7N & ethylamine side chain). They bear close resemblance to the neurotransmitter serotonin. How these substances work is, I have come to believe, still quite obscure. Primary effect seems to be the inhibition of neurotransmitter serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine aka 5-HT), i.e. a 5-HT2A post-synaptic agonist that mimics the effects to 5-HT to put it in jargon. This is the working hypothesis for LSD-25 at the moment and it's probably true for psilocybin as well. These substances also present some cross-tolerance. As a good psychedelic should, psilocybin, psilocin and psilocybian mushrooms have low toxicity - in tests with mice, doses up to 200 mg of psilocybin/kg of body (in average human terms (65 kg) 13 grams) have been injected intravenously without lethal effects. The ED50:LD50 ratio is 641 according to the NIOSH Registry of Toxic Effects; compare this with 9637 for vitamin A, 4816 for LSD , 199 for aspirin and 21 for nicotine. Poisoning, at least physically, is thus not a problem. Then we have the two other significant indole alkaloids, Baeocystin, unlike psilocybin, baeocystin is somewhat unstable, and decays noticeably with age. And then we have baeocystin's close chemical cousin, Norbaeocystin. Baeocystin and norbaeocystin are just psilocybin with one methyl and two methyls respectively lopped off. And unfortunately for all you synthesis experts, while baeocystin and norbaeocystin do not have DEA control numbers they do both come under the Controlled Substance Analogue Act. When dephosphorylated, they turn into 4-hydroxy-N-methyltryptamine and 4-hydroxytryptamine. All 4 substances are presumed hallucinogenic, but less so than psilocin or psilocybin. Very little work seems to have been done on them (Chemical Abstracts averages a cite a year, with most of them of the variety "baeocystin found in Psilocybe totallyobscuralis"). There has been some speculation on the 'net about them, and a possible correlation between nausea and the amount of baeocystin has been found. We hope to be able to investigate the question further for the next version. These are just the four "biggies". A whole truckload of other indoles are known to exist in Psilocybe mushrooms. Here's a sample of what was found in a batch of Psilocybe baeocystis, excluding the ones mentioned above: Indole derivative, Amount (ug) 5-Benzyloxy-3-indole acetic acid 2 N,N-Dimethyltryptamine hydrogen-oxalate [aka DMT] 4 Gramine 40 3-Hydroxyethyl indole 2 5-Hydroxy-3-indole acetic acid 2 5-Hydroxyindole 4 3-Hydroxymethylindole 2 5-Hydroxytryptamine creatine sulfate [aka Serotonin] 4 5-Hydroxytryptophane 2 Indole 4 3-Indoleacetamide 2 3-Indole acetic acid 2 3-Indoleacetic acid ethyl ester 2 3-Indoleacetonitrile 2 3-Indolealdehyde 40 3-Indoleacetaldehyde 2 3-Indolecarboxylic acid 4 3-Indolelactic acid 2 gamma-(Indole)-N-butyric acid 4 beta-Indole-3-acrylic acid 2 beta-(Indole-3)-propionic acid 4 Indoxylacetate 2 Indoxylbutyrate 2 Isatin 2 5-Methoxy-2-carboxyindole 2 5-Methoxydimethyltryptamine monooxalate [aka Bufotenine] 4 5-Methoxyindole 4 2-Methylindole 2 3-Methylindole 4 5-Methylindole 4 5-Methyltryptophane 2 N-Methyltryptophane 2 Tryptamine hydrochloride 4 L-Tryptophane 0.8 From: A.Y. Leung, A.H. Smith & A.G. Paul, "Production of Psilocybin in Psilocybe baeocystis Saprophytic Culture" J Pharm Sci 54: 1576 (1965) Yes, Psilocybe mushrooms contain DMT, but in microscopic amounts. DMT is not orally active anyway, so it doesn't do anything.

    Phleb destruction

    I would never assume a plant to be wrong. How can a plant that is growing in its natural environment be wrong? min(E)rval was curious as to why the Phlebs were out of step with the "regular" cycle that we are accustomed to at this point in recorded history. The answer was fairly simple, due to the weather(drought, abrupt season change) over the past ten years and the fire much more recently. So there is nothing "wrong" with the phlebs and their flowering, its no big problem, its just that they are doing it at a different time than usually recorded. I dont beleive that this will be an issue for the phlebs, give it a few years and they will be back to their "regular" cycle.
  18. Myself and a like minded individual travelled to our favorite mountain to take some photos today. When we arrived at a well known lookout i was appalled. It seems parks victoria care more about keeping paths clear than the rare flora that lives on the mountain. At first i thought that some arsehole had been ripping branches off the young trees. On closer inspection i could clearly see that the area next to the path had been slashed. This has obviously been done by park management to keep the track clear for people. Even though there is a fair number of phlebs in the vicinity, I think that that they should be left alone to grow where ever they sprout. People can go around them, they cant move, we can.
  19. The last time i looked the bid was up to $184. It has finished now, anyone know what it went for?

    Phleb destruction

    I have received some information from my partners mother(Botanist,plant ecologist also studied genetics microbiology and native pine ecology) in regards to the (strange)flowering time of the phlebs this season. She suggested that due to the prolonged, yet not so severe drought in the region the sublte changes from one season to the next was completely out of whack. The large amount of rain we had in November also contributed to this effect, confusing the plants about the season or seasonal changes. This was the most likely explanation although there could be other reasons or contributing factors. This was only a very brief phone call, and i dare say that i will be seeing her in the next couple of days to sit down and talk more about other possibilities.

    TV Competition Scam/s

    LOL Everyone i know used to use "the straw trick" when using the telstra public phones. It seems telstra cottoned on to the practice fairly quickly and modified the phones, thus putting a stop to free phone calls. Its hard to scam a scammer!
  22. PD.

    TV Competition Scam/s

    Telstra have been doing it for years. Ever been to a phone box to make a call, only to realise the only coin you have is a two dollar coin? You make your call, which now cost fifty cents per local call. Lets say the call cost you eighty cents, you have one dollar twenty left. You have two options; 1/ You can push the follow on button and use their wonderful service again to call someone else, or 2/ you can hang up and lose your one dollar twenty to the pay phone. Alot of my friends think that iam a bit of a tight arse when i go on about this, but here is the example i use; You go in the supermarket and get thirty five dollars worth of groceries, when paying for the items you use a fifity dollar note. Now the person at the checkout takes your fifty buck note and asks if you would like anything else, if you say no then the money is put into the register and that is the end of the transaction. I understand that losing a little change isnt a big deal to alot of people, but just think about how many pay phones are out there. I bet that small change adds up to some big bucks for telstra. sorry about going off topic, but when i hear the words "rip off" i just have to get on my soap box.
