    I've bought a science lab worth between fuck all and a few thousand, for 500 quid, and poop thinks I'm an idiot because I don't have a business plan.

    Trump hasn't been impeached yet.

    Um... I still smoke weed and drink tea.

    First day of the new school year starts on Monday, and I'm stoked.

    I've put together new demos over the summer to measure the Hall Effect in class, as well as creating a rainbow from a "single rain drop."

    The Hall effect is subtle and difficult to measure, and I had to purchase a 20 A power source to be able to show the tiny effect. After much failure trying to tease out a measurement of a few nano Volts, the increased current from the new power supply gave me a signal in the micro Volt range, which is much easier to measure in a classroom.

    The single rain drop is not rain... not even water, but the physics is effectively the same. I have a spherical beaker filled with Glycerol. These 2 (glass and Glycerol) have the same index of refraction, so the fact that it's a liquid in a solid container is not an issue. There is no surface where the index of refraction changes except between the glass and the air. It's really more like making a rainbow from a glass bead, but the differences are inconsequential aside from the angular size of the rainbow.


    I've got concert tickets to see Walk Off the Earth in November. They're probably the only actively touring band that I'd want to see live, and the fact that they're coming through St Louis to play a show on a Saturday night is just too much awesome for me to pass up. I know that FTR tends to favor electronic or heavy metal music, so I don't expect their sound to appeal to too many here, but I'm perfectly excited to tell everyone I know that my favorite band is coming to town.

    I clean lots of things with bleach, and lots of people use ebay. And the test tubes are worth a few hundred quid. There's something like a thousand of them.

    MMM already told you why you shouldn't do it. Do you understand chlorine bleach can release chlorine gas if it comes into contact with the wrong chemicals. Like, I dunno, something that might be at the bottom of a used test tube that came from a chem lab?

    I'm seriously starting to worry you're gonna do something silly with this kit and end up coughing up your liver on youtube.

    The ebay part of that criticism was the least critical bit.

    Are you a health and safety officer? You should be.

    Or a traffic warden.

    You know when you go swimming in a public bath, and your eyes sting... it's not child's piss, it's the stuff they put in there to sterilise the child's piss... chlorine. We can tolerate small amounts. Now, I'm assuming there will be atoms in the bottom of the test tubes, not caked on random substance. The amount of chlorine gas will be a fart in the wind.

    First, chlorine bleach has a lot more chlorine in it than swimming pool water. Put some bleach in your eye and see how much THAT stings if you want an idea of the difference in concentration.

    Second, chlorine dissolved in water in tiny concentrations, still enough to irrirate your mucous membranes, is not the same as chlorine gas going into your lungs. Chlorine gas is so good at fucking up your lungs they used it in the trenches of WWI. And it's so good that it doesn't take a lot to take you out of the game. They also have warnings on bleach telling you to please not be a moron and mix this with other cleaners because it could release the chlorine gas. Only they don't go into that much detail because some moron will think 'oooh, green gas, maybe I can make a youtube video' and do it anyways.

    Third, it's not just the chlorine in the bleach that might get released as chlorine gas, it's whatever other unknown shit in the test tube it can potentially combine with, or release from whatever else it was bonded with, that might potentially eat your face off.

    But hey, don't listen to common sense. That's just being a chicken. Go ahead and dump all your kit in a bucket of bleach and stand over it and take a deep breath. Then film it for youtube. Your next of kin can post the video on your behalf.

    I am literally improving as a person.

    For the longest time, I've improved in theory or tried to improve, but the literal substance was just not what I knew it should be. But now that is different.

    First, I siad diluted bleach.

    Second, four atoms of chlorine will not kill me.

    Third, did you get a job as a H&S officer yet?

    Seriously, you're investing way too much time in this. I'm pretty sure I immediately said to mojo "OK I won't do it", so you're just wasting your fucking time here dude, thinking that you're both giving me sound advice while mocking my idiocy.

    If you think I'm going to be standing over my fumy apparatus while I throw bleach on it, you're the idiot.

    Do you have a fume hood? Safety goggles? Any safety equipment at all that a non-moron would use while mixing chemicals and making their homemade lsd?

    Ya, didn't think so.

    I like how you think you know the answer when you don't.

    I have safety goggles, and I have a few disposable face masks. Shows what you know.

    Yep, found my disposable masks, they are wrapped around my can of mase. Don't tell me I'm not safety conscious.

    Just came back from a week on safari in Tanzania and a week relaxing in Zanzibar. Seeing lions hunting zebra (and failing), plus hyenas trying to grab a baby hippo (also failing) was fascinating.

    Got the post-holiday blues and truly bored of working for a living. No doubt I'll shake that off soon - I've not been drunk for 6+ weeks, which needs sorting asap.

    Still playing tournament poker one night per week and a little bit of Zoom. Finally bought a Holdem Resources Calculator sub and beginning to explore with that.

    Come back to Astoria. Queens misses you.
    That's how winners play; we convince the other guy he's making all the right moves.

    Only 6 months dossing about, I am very disappointed with myself.

    I like how people show up at Christmas to basically say "hey guys I'm not dead". I mean boog was a clown, it's not out of the question he'd hung himself.

    At this point I would like to say suicide is no joking matter and if you're struggling, you're not alone, there is hope, and there is help. Google "how to die painlessly" and the top search is professional help, the Samaritans in the UK.

    Happy New Year, folks.

    This could be my greatest ever post at this site.

    Hahah, well fuck. Ongs never change.

    True that. I reckon next Christmas, there will just be me here, and I'll still be posting stupid shit.
