    Mandatory Vacinations, no jab no play

    Dunno if anyone saw, but apparently the only polio left is from vaccinations.... problem in Aussie land is we don’t actually have a bill of rights, so th way could alter law easily to make it mandatory. Problem is - you need a control group to actually know if it works... or placebo effect control. Either way - I’m seeing people divided again over the wrong issue.

    Happy COVID Party 2020

    I must say this is a great divide and conquer tactic lol

    Caapi cutback?

    I chopped mine back to a trunk (branch (twig lol - it’s about a thumb round)) in October... had zero leaves... it’s now massive again. I think the biggest thing is making sure it doesn’t dry out around the base if you cut it back while it re grows.
  4. Over my life I have come across the flat earth theory numerous times. Primary school was when I remember learning the earth is a sphere. At the same time I used to go to church with mum and I remember the non sphere bible teaching at one or two occasions.(FYI I'm not religious and never liked church etc. but do respect the fact some people are) but at that age I was still a sponge and absorbed info without too much question. High school I remember coming across the theory again. But at this age it was really just brushed off as a pre dated biblical theory which science disproved many many years ago. So pretty much didn't do much but heckle the idea. Just out of high school I'd awakened to many ideas that we are being controlled and lied to on many levels. Upon other theories I came across in my quest for truth, the flat earth once again appeared and I looked at it with more of an open mind. But at the end I saw the proof given to sphere and ticked it off the list. So so where am I now and why am I bothering to post about this? Well I'm 30 now and over a year back my life was flip on it's head and I began to fully awaken. So I'm not too young to be a sponge nor too old to teach new tricks lol. But last week I really came into question the shape of our home. Why now and not then? What's different now? I realise awakening changes everything in the way you can't explain to the sleeping. But this is obsurd. Flat earth? Or at least not a spinning ball? Bullshit I say. But.... while I'm no math professor, I do use math everyday for work. Circles, arcs, tangents, angles, geometry. I know, understand and use many math formulas these days and really enjoy math. So I though haha I understand math now so I'll do some calculations and test this flat earth bullshit now I'm equipt with the language that doesn't lie. And well... I'm not so sure about the spherical earth now. The math just does not add up. Looked at many vids other people doing the same math to double check my thoughts and I'm not wrong mathamaticly I'm pretty sure. Before we start the discussion, please note. I'm not advocating a flat earth or a sphereical earth. I realise there are many points to support and disprove both theories. I also want to note that I personally do not believe the notion of a flat earth 'means' there is a creator. Which I have found a lot of. Yeah the bible has a flat earth model but this is really besides the point. So this is not a religious argument. I'm looking at what I think is the most crucial. The math. I posted this here because I have seen the community here has their eye open a little wider than the majority, so I'm hoping people can contribute their thoughts and feelings without bias slandering just cause lol. You know what I mean.

    Psilocybin Mushrooms of SE QLD, Australia

    Anyone know any spots around spring mountain seq?
  6. I obsorbed the light refracted off my cacti with my retinas. Cool flower.

    Psilocybin Mushrooms of SE QLD, Australia

    Kilcoy is a great spot apparently. I’ve never been picking in seq. But NQ I had a lot of spots. Worst part is finding the time these days.

    Psilocybin Mushrooms of SE QLD, Australia

    Solid rain indeed. My yards a lake. Fungi poping up everywhere. Too bad their the random non desirable kind. If anyone can assist in dispatching the fruits of the earth please PM me.

    Deleting albums

    Just going through my profile and got 3 albums with nothing in em (pretty sure I put pics in em) any ways I just want to remove them and either make a new one or is a blog better for posting pics ?

    Is this legal?

    My guess would be unless you have any ‘proof’ and would be going through the legal system, there’s little to nothing that could be or would be done. And in that case depending on the true nature of the call out, could prompt further unnessary harassment.
  11. So my viridis is growing nicely, but upon close inspection it is over run with scale (I think it’s scale). Ive tried wiping them off and using rose scale spray and been oil but it’s seems to do nothing. Thoughts? It’s not hurting the plant in an obvious way but I’m sure it would thrive much better with out it. The other two viridis I have had none but now are starting to get it. So I sorta wanna get on top of it ASAP.
  12. A few years ago we bought a water urn with filters. I grew up in NQ and the tap water was pretty good and never really gave it a second thought. Once I moved to SEQ I immediently noticed the water was horrid to drink. Probably not as bad as other places in Aus but still it wasn’t nice. I’m pretty sure my cordial intake tripled to help mask the taste as a counter measure lol. The water urn and filters were the best thing I’ve ever done to water. The taste is so much more pure and enjoyable. We also noticed it felt better when you drank it. Just thought I’d share a pic of a years worth of water sludged onto the first filter before and after it’s cleaned. The second filter is encased in plastic so I could really get a before an after shot of that one. Filter your water - it’s worth it.

    Look into sugarbag bees. Or any Australian native stingless bees. That way you don’t need bee keeping suits and smokers and your helping out native little buggers out. Hives usually go anywhere from $250-$600 depending on who you get it from. http://www.sugarbag.net/ While our native bees arnt really the best for honey production (if that’s your purpose) they can give small amounts once a hive is established. Personally have no experience with bees (yet) other than watching the hoards around my yard go for any flowers that pop up. good luck and hope you get your bees.

    Pics from Japanese Plants. Enjoy it!

    Where does one acquire such epicness?

    Making sense of HBWR

    I found the days diet played a huge role in outcome of effects. Empty stomach with small feasting of fruit was the best. But as Bardo says, scrape and burn is the way to go unless you want to spend more time prepping. Never had much visual effect for me - even at 18 seeds. But the body load was intense. Trying to move was not an easy experience either. I tend to agree with DualWieldRake in that you teach yourself. Plant teachers just help you listen to what’s already there. Although I can relate to the absence of lessons being presented - other than stomach aches hurt lol.
  16. It amazes me (and well i guess just a equally doesn’t amaze me) that some people don’t know/understand/acknowledge such a basic concept. We have this extraordinary complex machine we pilot but without using it, it begins to fail (prematurely). I guess a lot stems down to the preconditioning and brainwashing our (western) society has implemented. Laziness too, and people’s dispositions of lack of time. The majority want a quick fix and not a lifestyle choice to better themselves. Great little video. Thanks for sharing.
  17. We recently cut back our overgrown herb garden and it got me thinking again - what can I do with all this extra herb. Yes I could dry it and use it in cooking but it’s always on hand for fresh stuff so drying seems a bit of a waste of time to me at this point. My partner loves essential oils and I want to get her something to start small with and see what becomes from that. Reading @Alchemica posts makes me want to try it even more with such benefits from plant extracts. So I’ve sorta narrowed my thoughts to two options but would really love any input, thoughts, suggestions etc to nudge me the right way. I know it’s not as simple as just doing it and a lot of refinement will be required to get desired results but hey, dunno till ya try. First up I seen this: https://magicalbutter.com.au while not for making essential oils but more so infused butter/oil - I thought maybe a good starting point as it seems very simple and useful (maybe should just get one for the kitchen anyways). and the other option: https://www.ebay.com.au/i/162088208426?chn=ps&ul_ref=http%3A%2F%2Frover.ebay.com%2Frover%2F1%2F705-139619-5960-0%2F2%3Fmpre%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Fwww.ebay.com.au%252Fi%252F162088208426%253Fchn%253Dps%26itemid%3D162088208426%26targetid%3D402997076583%26device%3Dm%26adtype%3Dpla%26googleloc%3D9068947%26poi%3D%26campaignid%3D1034038926%26adgroupid%3D53578125569%26rlsatarget%3Dpla-402997076583%26abcId%3D1130316%26merchantid%3D116466630%26gclid%3DEAIaIQobChMI5a_jo8SX2QIVChSPCh3xOAEIEAQYASABEgJn7PD_BwE%26srcrot%3D705-139619-5960-0%26rvr_id%3D1436232255617&var=461049085269 or any other the other varieties on the bay of e. this seems to be perhaps more useful in actually extracting essential oils (or making moonshine lol) but it’s probably a cheap piece of fecal matter that could be a waste of time/money. In which if it were a waste the first option would probably be better value. My other concern with this device is the heating cost. Wood fire is cheap but temperature control would be tedious, and using electrical heating would become expensive (until I get solar/battery) vs just buying the oils. Anyone played with these things before and have any starting points to go from.
  18. Some great starting points there everyone. Thankyou. More research now and I’ll be keeping an eye out for some materials. Might be good to start this closer to winter. Then it’ll help heat the place up too. I think that’s the go though - make a cheap nasty still and see how it works, then upgrade from there.
  19. Thankyou @sharxx101 for the amazing loph. I decided I will get it rooted and put it in the ground amoungst the rest of the cacti.

    Deleting albums

    Too easy. Thanks for checking it out. I’m not too concerned if the pics go missing. Just don’t like having empty albums sitting there.

    P. Viridis scale? And now ID request.

    The #2 looks different to the others which are defiantly carth. But it could still be a carth. Do you think all 3 are the same?

    How do I delete my account please?

    This is most unwise. It’s like the guy protecting the last white rhinos and saying - what a waste of time it was protecting this rare animal and contributing to the betterment of the earth. I’ll just shoot him now. I don’t know specifically what all the drama is about, and not knowing usually means I should keep my input out. But I’ll say this - I came to this forum because I love plants. At a guess id say most people here joined for the same reason. Having all the other banter that flys around is just a bonus that make this place a bit more interesting. And... we’re human - with human conflict - and this we cannot escape while we inhabit our vessels. But we can question, learn and attempt to better understand the situations we create, others and ourselves. And through the mirrors of perception we find the rise of disagreement as two mirrors oppose each other yet both compete for the same light. Is there a lesson to be learnt here? Is this a sign to alter course? At it’s core, is there merit for such reaction? The answers are individual, self perceived and only ones self can derive meaning to support cause. Im not here to say stay or go - your choice is your own and rightfully so. But I will say: United we stand - divided we fall. On a quick side note I would have hated to be a christian in a chat room back in the 90s. Lol
  23. Thankyou @sharxx101 for the comp, and Thankyou to all who voted for my piece.
