Test bed number two...

Outside stickers are being destruction tested on the back of the truck.

For indoors, our laptop is providing a suitable test surface.

(The Luna logo was on there from an old purchase)

Day 6 of modifying our hormones.

DHT suppression and oestrogen gel.

This stuff is magic.
MAGIC we say.

Not for any physical changes, though there are hints, things are ready to shift.

But for the mental aspect.
We have not felt this aligned, attuned, united, comfortable, since... well ever.

Damn.
Should have worked this out decades ago 🀦

Going to be an interesting journey. πŸ˜€

In the garage looking for the right bits to drill some tile tomorrow...

This catches our eye.
We were talking about fly agaric.

We have a rather large specimen. πŸ„

Must restore it properly sometime.

Wonder if any can guess where it came from and what it was used for in the past???

(UK females of a certain age may stand the best chance...)

Silphium is an extinct plant which once grew in North Africa. In the ancient Mediterranean, it was used as a seasoning, perfume, medicine, aphrodisiac, and contraceptive.

It was the main trade item from the city of Cyrene in what is now Libya. Silphium was so important to Cyrenese trade, the plant was stamped onto their coins. Some of those coins show only the seed pods of the plant, which are heart shaped – and some people speculate this may be where the now ubiquitous heart symbol originally came from πŸ’š

First, full disclosure: I didn't watch the USian debate and have zero intention of watching it in the future.
Teaching young kids how to identify logical fallacies in the war of words constantly swirling about them is important and this poster is helpful.
In addition to fact-checking, it may be fun to go through and also label the forms of rhetoric just for sport.

Oh, we should make it clear.
Their is a soft spot in our heart for amanitas and specifically the fairy toadstool that is fly agaric.

Just not sure it would be our go to mushroom for what someone would be expecting from a "magic mushroom".

Though we wonder how much *experience* Lewis Carroll had, when he uses it for size changing Alice. πŸ˜€

Imagine if the caterpillar had been sitting on a panther cap 😝

Wife did an online (as are many things at the moment) food hygiene refresher course so she stays up to date.

She came out afterwards to tell us that her ears pricked up when the trainer had mentioned she had seen magic mushrooms while out. She then rolled her eyes when she described fly agaric*.

Our lovely wife knows the difference between her entheogens, and how to spot the less gaudy LBMs** that have a much better usage πŸ‘

*Useful in it's way.

**LBMs == Little Brown Mushrooms 😝

Slight nip to the air these days.
Autumn is on its way.

As evidenced by fresh ice and snow on the tops...

(In very small amounts, but none the less)

Ho hum...

Sore fingers today.
Tried to do a home blood test. Finger prick module, fill two tubes, mail to lab.
Simple.

Or not if you do not bleed very well, 30 minutes of squeezing fingers, doing exercise to raise blood pressure and heart rate, nowhere near enough.
Opened the holes up, nada...

Guess we are going to be researching how to draw blood in other ways. 🀷

Of course it would be better if the GP would help, but they aren't doing blood tests because of Covid (FFS they are in hiding)

A British football (soccer) teams bus was put off the road as an unintended consequence of Covid19 precautions - the alcohol spray used for the disinfection was detected by a safety system as the driver being potentially under the influence, and the vehicle refused to start!

@zatnosk
Infrastructure put in to create the atmosphere would have to be removed/modified afterwards.
So going for maximum speed, would create a cost/impact later.

Scored based on regional/global air quality, bio-diversity, resistance to things like disease outbreak, freak weather occurrences, disputes between neighbours.

Bonuses for raising multiple co-operative communities across species?

@zatnosk
Not beholden to any ideas, just throwing things out there BTW.
Also *totally* get the idea vs being able to achieve actualisation is very fundamental. Talking about stiff we would find ourselves imposing limits based on what we could achieve. So very "pie in the sky" thoughts.

Start with rock, no atmosphere.
Creating an atmosphere would involve co-operation with those around, to be effective. Cannot be centralised.

@zatnosk
Aye, there is that. Though starting something from the current world state would not be unrealistic.
What about bioforming a dead world. Bring life and diversity to where the was none?

@zatnosk
Environmental rebuilding?
Where measures you take are amplified by getting your neighbours to adopt similar/same/complimentary measures.
