Let me rephrase that, say in some arbitrary amount of years, some reporter finds something you wrote, here, in some random argument that goes against the current ideology. How would you feel being fired from your job, all those little socklettes depending on you, because you said some now verboten thing.

It's all well and good when it's just cancelling people who say "Wrong Things," but the problem is, public opinion shifts, never know when you find yourself on the wrong end of a pointy stick.

I used to work for Blockbuster. People would pay hundreds in late fees routinely. The tapes themselves were paid for after the first rental, the employee wages were from candy and drink sales. That place was a gold mine, they fucked the customers so hard....

I think there's a disconnect between what I mean and how it's coming across to you. Banning people, from an administrative viewpoint is necessary. It is an important consideration to allow an admin the authority to ban people on their own recognizance. Why you think me talking about it is a jab at Amelia, besides maybe a little playfully is slightly confusing.

Not a place, but a couple US companies. Lasko makes really good fans, I get about 8 years of continuous run time out of a $20 fan, and that was probably just a (sadly nonreplaceable) fuse going.

And Barbasol is the best shaving cream you can buy, and it's super cheap.

You can buy both at Walmart, although that place isn't exactly known for American goods obviously.

Overbrewed colloidal silver by Horrux in ColloidalElements

[–]AmericanMuskrat 1 insightful - 1 fun1 insightful - 0 fun2 insightful - 1 fun -  (0 children)

The stuff I make with a 9V battery has a strange refraction, I assume from the silver, but the real proof it's silver in there comes if you leave the batch sitting for weeks, it turns ink black, silver nitrate. I've also tested the anti bacterial properties of it in a super scientific experiment involving moldy bread and on my bathroom walls (no ventilation so mold is a problem)

I do have some bad news. Silver isn't the best at what it does. Ultimately bleach worked way better on the walls, and a simple otc antibacterial cream was far more effective for wound care. Even tested a commercial silver antibacterial cream. It would follow that prescription antibiotics are also far more effective than silver.

Also, a piece of silver in a bowl of water doesn't keep it fresh longer, tried that too, but silvering is used in the water holds of ships.

I don't know if trying to make a colloidal suspension will do better, the article I linked didn't think so. I suspect not, but please do test it.

don't know where to turn to for the physics of it, since any search engine when going "colloidal silver" will show me pages where to buy it and equipment, but not real science.

I have the same problem. There's a lot of junk info out there.

And it came up in conversation last night, and this person said what does it matter if they killed 6 million or 600,000. And I get the logic to that, but what about us then, as a nation. We're responsible for more Iraqi and Vietnamese deaths than 600,000.

He didn't believe that, but it's easily checked.

But that doesn't make it better, it just puts into perspective the death we're responsible for.

society expects people to behave in certain ways according to whether they have a penis or a vagina, even if the behaviors are entirely unrelated, but some people behave differently than the expectation.

I behave differently than the expectation. I actually recently got kicked off my discord Cripplingalcoholism server for having a relationship that isn't gender normative. Not even like I'm drastically bending social norms, my wife just makes more money than I do. That still invokes feelings of disgust. Also goes back to the sex thing. Alpha males who are old (bad providers) would be challenged.

Anyways, my point is that it doesn't mean I see myself as a woman just because I'm an atypical man.

I ain't sure how certain behaviors became associated with genitals, such as wearing make-up and shaving your legs, but others make more sense: women have kids, so naturally they take care of them, and that leaves men with the responsibility to work.

I really love the word ain't. Growing up my teachers liked to say "ain't ain't a word," but it's a nice southern touch if you ask me.

Gillette made shaving your legs a thing to sell razor blades. Seriously.

Make up is just about attracting a mate, lots of animals do it too.

It all goes down to survival. Our sexuality is an ancient survival mechanism. And I'm speaking in generalities here but typically guys want to fuck as much as possible, best chance for them to propagate. We're simple creatures like that. Women have an incentive to find a strong male because they're going to be knocked up with child then saddled with the brat and they need resources, a caretaker, to survive.

Women also have an incentive to surround themselves with weak males. More protection and care taking without cost (pregnancy). Second tier males who make failed bids to have a shot at breeding are exiled from the community (they exist today as incels, in olden times they usually probably just died off -- the natural revulsion a person feels for incels is instinctual).

I think that pretty much sums up everything about modern heterosexual relationships. Sure, we fancied it up over the years but it all goes down to the basics.

Homosexuality seems to be genetic, since computer programs can identify homosexuals that means there's a relationship to appearance and genetics would be the obvious answer. Why those genetics are expressed may have to do with environmental factors, such as overcrowding.

Trans... Fuck if I know, you should probably explain that one to me. I figure it's psychological.

Corky was the whole point of the popular show, at least till the last season when it became about AIDs. There was a whole "you can have sex with people with AIDs" theme for a hot sec. And this was back when AIDs prevention was hoping the condom worked because it was very much a death sentence.

Thank god for streaming. We were a captive audience in those days.

Wait a minute, I am making COLLOIDAL silver, not ions. Making ions out of a 30v PSU would mean a chemical reaction rather than an electro-physical one.

I think they're essentially interchangeable, and I know that's a hot topic of debate but this guy really hits the hammer on the nail

Good luck, let me know if you figure it out.

Looks like my garlic, I figured it'd be okay in the polar vortex since it's a winter plant. Which, I don't know if that was a great ides since it would have been trivial to bring inside (potted) but it seems alive.

The important part of that article to me is politicians regulating crypto will tank the value. They're probably saying this now, and it is highly speculative, but so that when they pass laws that wipe out people's crypto assets they can say "see, I told you so, was that damned crytpo all along."

I don't know about weather control, but I've mentioned before that I have pain flare ups with the weather and it's just been getting worse. I can't be sure that's not just me getting worse, but we have months where it's one big weather event coming in after another and I don't remember that being so common.

I can't imagine someone would want to do this, our weather is costing billions of dollars in damages. But we certainly have influenced the effects of the weather. We flood as bad as we do because we've paved over too much of our natural drainage with concrete. Part of the problem anyways.

Do you know the REASON why they say it should be clear though

Cloudiness means something is in there you don't want since if it were only ionic silver it'd be clear. Silver chloride is the obvious culprit but without salt, I don't know how it's being formed. Also, eventually an ionic silver solution will precipitate out silver nitrate normally, it turns black, but that takes a while.

I do a 9V bat with a 99.999% silver ingot split in half, no heat.

I wonder if the heat is a catalyst. I think you might want to check with someone with a stronger knowledge of chemistry than myself.

But Hunt said he filed the bill upon request form one of his constituents, telling the Herald: “Any time a constituent approaches me with something that is of concern to them, I follow through with it.”

“This might also illuminate the exhaustive legislative process for people that might not normally be engaged,” he said.

This makes it seem pro forma only.
