    Got any of that anti cunt medicine? 


    the best method I’ve discovered so far is to simply continue being a grumpy jaded cnut, focusing on all the negative horrendous things that upset you while ignoring all the wonderful positive blessings that surround you until you’ve sabotaged most of the positive things in your life & damaged the majority of your most valuable relationships & your mental & physical health suffers through perpetual angst & refusal to accept inevitable change & then you channel your frustration & alienation into soul crushing & destructive habit patterns that perpetuate your downward spiral into your tortured nihilistic hole of misery at which point, if you still have any will to live at all & your soul is not irretrievably lost you may then choose to be brutally honest with yourself & recognise that you’re most likely just full of your own shit & the only real path that makes any sense if you want to have any self worth at all that isn’t pure toxic ego is to focus on positive self determination where you realise that whatever circumstances exist in the external world , you are actually free to choose how to interpret your experience & that if we actually do genuinely care about the things that upset us then the only authentic way to actually address it is through a positivistic approach where you take responsibility for your own actions & reactions & work to create something positive in the world rather than react to the negative.. the next step is to try to dedicate yourself to working on that a little bit every day or every time you realise you’ve slipped back into unconscious reactionary attitudes & work to have compassion for your own ignorance & the ignorance of those around you.. one day at a time. 


    but that’s probably not a very practical prescription..

  3. Hey dude haha, fair call, I think I’m over that phase tbh. The apparent exponential weirdenening of the things in the world in general calls for a more holistic & less douchey approach..  being a jaded cnut can only achieve so much.. which really, is actually very little at all ;)


    Good to see you here dude.. Lots of you making me remember the real reasons I missed this place & all you plant nerds. It’s relatively quiet these days what with the corporate machine luring so many away.. But I’ll take the good old ma & pa nursery with their generations of real experience & their quality over quantity approach over Bunnings any day, so to speak

  4. I haven’t checked this thread in about 5 years.. It’s really great & very satisfying to see everyone’s progress pictures, even if they’re a few years old now.. if anyone has pics of this clone, please post!

    Welcome back from your slumber. What inspired the resurfacing? Haha 


    cheers, I didn’t go to Facebook ;)


    tbh, I tried to log in a couple times a while back & I forgot my password on the forum as well as the email I signed up with 15 odd years ago :P


    recently I’ve been building some new gardens of all sorts, one of them being a cacti project & it’s been rekindling my cacti obsession so I figured I’d get my shite sorted & drop back in & see what’s up, maybe do some trades etc & see what’s going on round these parts of the internet again

  6. you didn't mention me obviously & i don't know who you are but i was looking for a place to say hi after not logging on for probably well over a year..  Hi everyone, hope you're all excellent & i too would love to know how all those people are going

  7. Hi everyone, long time no speak!!!!  how is everyone?  who's still around these days?


    I'm hoping to check back in here a little more often & see whats going on with folks


    But to cut to the chase, i've been getting back into playing with my cacti..  I'm basically looking to purchase 10x (or perhaps more) different clones that i do not already have..  i'm happy to pay the good old price of  $1 a centimeter or perhaps more for very interesting clones & looking for 25-30cm cuttings of nice healthy specimens..  if a single person is keen to make a quick buck & has ten cuttings i'm keen on i'm happy to make it simple & do that..  or if multiple people have a few interesting cuts & i can do multiuple smaller transactions that would be cool too..

    so i'm not too sure how much activity is on the forums these days but if anyone can help out an old long term member & wants to make a quick buck please PM!..  i'm quite keen to get some cuttings rooted well before winter :)


    some of the clones &/or secies i'd be interested in (though i'm pretty much interested in anything cool that i don't have so don't be afraid to make an offer) are: rosei 1 & 2, Jess, kai, eva, bert, mum & dad, fields macrogonus, juuls giant, any interesting wild pachanoi forms, or any interesting/pretty/unique clones of peruvianus, bridgesii or any species really.. if you have something cool of any description (trichocereus-wise) you are able to send a cut of please let me know!


    thanks a lot if you can help folks!  hope to catch you around more often!

    explain how I'm wrong with cold logic and change my mind....


    These ideas are infinitely more complicated, unachievable & fraught with insurmountable complexities than just about any other solution imaginable 


    Climate change has been politicised in such a way so as to dupe morons into supporting utterly unacceptable social control. It’s working like a charm & you’re a prime example among prime examples of this considering what you are advocating. 


    please stop being so hysterical people. In 1989 we were told the ice caps would be melted & the world would end by the year 2000.. sure things are a bit worrying but we aren’t even close to being smart enough to understand the true implications of the unknown changes that we don’t even understand what those changes really are yet.. positive progress & meaningful solutions to problems come from calm, clear, positive minds.. the only things that come from hysteria is personal hell & a willingness to accept insidious social control. 


    I’m pretty sure you are not going to become this genocidal overlord noob so which way your mind sways is neither here nor there, I just was compelled to point out how retarded your ideas are & point out how dangerous that kind of psychotic hysteria is.  the fact you’re a psychopath is just an obvious side-note

  9. I agree that over population is a huge issue by the way & it freaks me out & affects my life as much as anyone & there’s so much that is most valuable to me that is deeply, mortally threatened by it... I have often fantasised about living in a world where there’s plenty of space & resources for everyone & the biosphere is not continually being destroyed but I still find your perspective either naive or psychopathic, possibly both.. 


    Yes I’m trolling you but I’m also serious. It really seems you haven’t thought through the monumental implications of this idea.. which is fine, we’re all allowed to talk shit but you’re shooting down people in the thread who think practical solutions are worth focusing on before resorting to genocidal mass murder.. 


    It seems to me you’re either jerking off for the heck of it, you really haven’t begun to consider the problem outside of the fantasy world in your head or you’re actually just a psychopathic post-modernist extremist nutjob.


    no offense

    You may call me insane for thinking population control is the only viable cure for what ails this planet but I think you're the insane one for ignoring it merely because it makes you feel bad to think about it.  I get how it's cold, ruthless and we'd lose what remains of our humanity going down that path which is why you'd never consider it an option but that doesn't make it wrong. 


    I’d be more inclined to call you monumentally psychopathic to a degree that’s beyond comprehension.. insane doesn’t come close. 


    You describe rounding up & murdering BILLIONS of innocent babies & children & people (I guess as long as it’s not you & your friends) as ‘cold’?  I’m sure for those billions of people murdered it would also be a bit annoying, slightly inconvenient, kind of mean, a little slack..


    So if this psychopathic, genocidal slaughtering of billions of babies & innocent people is such that ‘you'd never consider it an option’ then why are you saying it’s our only viable option? What’s your point? Are you interested in solutions or do you just like fantasising about mass murder on a scale unfathomable by worst genocidal dictators known to humanity?


    if this scale of mass genocide can’t be considered ‘wrong’ then how on earth do you define that word?  What kind of demented post modernist extremist projection do you inhabit where you can’t even define something of that scale as wrong? 


    Please explain how you aren’t the most deplorable kind of psychopathic freak?

    all I'm saying is that we need to take a similar approach with ourselves.


    all you’re saying is billions of men, women & children need to be rounded up against their will & slaughtered.. got it.. simple right?


    maybe the hundreds of millions of tonnes of dead human bodies can be processed into fertiliser to grow the soy that will feed to privileged class of vegans whom were the only ones deemed worthy of life by the supreme leftist overlords

    Just a sec, I haven’t read all your posts, are you advocating mass genocide?  

  13. I haven’t been here in nearly a year but I have the feeling these small independent platforms will be very relevent again as the corporate control of social media becomes more & more insidious.. it might not ever be very big but it might be pretty relevant
