    The Great Global Warming/Cooling Thread Part 2

    been a while since I've been on the forum.... still keeping track on how it is all going to shit in great detail hehehe ;-)

    What did you do to your cacti today?

    Been a while since I posted here,.... other priorities. However have been eating lots of dragon fruits lately,............have 7 hylocerues cultivars,.. and 1 selinicerues........ protein smoothies with the fruits mixed in YUMMMM!!! :D Have been doing allot of repotting also,..... and also sold quiet a few cacti to people here on the island (Somewhere in the carib) had a few echinopis bloom on me,..... I was thinking they would never bloom here,... but apparently the do pretty well here..... If only my trichocerues cacti would bloom here.

    The Great Global Warming/Cooling Thread Part 2

    saw that NSW was being battered with a storm in the news and thought it might be interesting to see how you Aussies are hanging in there.......no posts of grief stricken people, because their favorite plants snapped or destroyed yet. Any good surf? hearing of 13 mtr seas..... some of that swell has to be getting higher up the coast. haha ,.. will look at what the charts say jut for the hell of it. anyway,.... been following Climate Change for more then 15 years now........and now seeing that the global temp averages are well above the norm for the last few months is heavy stuff to process, especially when you know that it is well above the average temperature projections is pretty disturbing. With this knowledge, now thinking about how fast the Arctic and Antarctic were already changing it is hard to begin to imagine what the next 5, 10 or further along the road will mean for us. I live in the Southern Caribbean on an island close to the coast of Venezuela,... the last time that we have been hit by a catagory 2 hurricane (tropical cyclone for you 'down undahh' folks ;-) ) was in 1877. We are generally considered to be south of the hurricane belt, we've had close calls, grazes, and tropical storms,...... but nothing really serious,..... In Nov 2010 we got some flooding... you Aussies would laugh if I told you about the extent of the flooding, because what you get in Australia is so much more worse,.... and that was because of some rain approx. 200 mm in one night.....which is allot of course especially if you do not usually get not even half of that in a 24hr period. So seeing what has happened weather wise in the Carib and Atlantic in the last 10 years compared to what has happened in the last century, I am really wondering / worried even what the next 10 will bring. Now we have what looks like a strong El Nino forming, which usually means hot and dry years for us in the Carib / Northern Atlantic, but doesn't mean that they will not form or not track as south. Ohhh well,... will see what the future holds,... or perhaps I should take up a new hobby as a prepper! Freaking cover all my bases.

    Hydroponic Lophs

    if you make the box nontransparent so that sunlight doesn't get in,... the algea will not grow at all or as well.

    Zelly is in the hospital

    Glad you and your leg are still with us Z! So cool to get little bits of info about people behind the SAB interface even though war is a horrible thing. Then again,.. the drama that the whole of mankind has been in throughout history is freaking heavy stuff and awesome at the same time.......
  6. Owww,... stimmulants,... what the hell for??? Useless!!! and will make the pan worse due to muscular overstimulation from compensating to keep the pain at a minimum. Better read up on the way bodybuilders eat to grow.
  7. Swimming is really good,........ walking is a NO NO, especially if your problem is severe. So I disagree with Getafix (agree to disagree hi hi hi)...... and yes,.. do take the exercises slowly. BTW I think that Pilates is good to get you started. (I do not agree with some of stretches they do. They can make the problem worse) As soon as you have almost no back pain anymore,.. you should start some more serious strengthening exercises. Always warm up,... do the strengthening,...and lightly stretch just to loosen the muscles up a bit. You do not have to be flex like a contortionist, just flex enough to be functional in daily life.
  8. DUDE!! I had some insane crippling back pains a few years back for long periods of time. If I can avoid it NEVER again! I train regularly now. Like Thunder Ideal said.... core exercises!!! Pilates is awesome,.. but there is so much more and plenty vids to be found on youtube. If you have no back muscles.......you need to slowly but surely put on some meat around that spine Mutant!! Learn from the physical therapist and work a progressive routine into your life. Join a gym! Walking is not so good for the back. Running can be very bad for the back. When your back strength improves and you can slowly start running. But remember that jogging puts allot of stress on the spine, especially if your back is weak and if your movement is not dynamic/efficient. You can beat this problem Mutant! But take it slowly. Maintenance should be at least 1 time a week if you have a good complete routine. Like I said,... but some meat around that spine first..... you should start getting less pain after 2 or 3 weeks of physical therapy,....then progressively keep at it....... set a goal...... hold a plank for a minute for example....

    Will all the radiation thats just been leaked in the world cause our cacti to crest and monstrate?

    hehehe,... the topic of torturing our cacti has come up again. Possibly my favorite topic......... yeb there is an article out there and on SAB where cacti were exposed to all kinds of extremes of light and freezing........ even talk of gathering americanium out of smoke detectors and exposing the seeds to it etc etc....... haha,..... injecting americanium in cacti ...... < that just occurred to me ......... :D

    What's the most depraved thing you have ever done?

    I like these some of these confessions. I have a very long list of shit I've done...........way to long............ some of it, really bad stuff. I still feel ashamed of some of the things I've done. Lets just say that it is better that I not mention the really bad stuff I did. I'm glad that I grew out of it. (Thanking God/Universe/Nature for that!) For me this is a good moment for reflection. thx!

    What did you do to your cacti today?

    Hacked off a piece of my TBCM and grafted it a few days ago. Did the same to my LW crest,... hacked 2 pieces off and grafted them. Confident that the TBCM took. The LW crest I am not so sure off. (Don't ask me why I went ahead with hylocereus (1st time) graftstock that I might have been on the slightly dry side ) Had a look at them today,... and I'm gravitating towards positive side with one of the LW cresties.

    Ebola. Latest developments thread.

    Well,... the US is considering closing it's borders to people from the stricken countries. Not illogical. It would be the start of serious consequences for the world economy when countries start doing so. That could also mean that if your country isn't doing enough to combat the disease, then you will be possibly barred from entering by protocol. So how prepared is your country if indeed the disease gets a foothold in the future? It would only be logical that if indeed such measures are taken, that the aid to the stricken countries are upped.
  15. thx for the stock tip Dreamwalker!
