  1. Yeah the numbers wouldn't be able to get into double figures with her counting.

    The wife has exactly the same view and that's what she does for a living. She also gets annoyed about people banging on about PTSD all the time as well, when they've been through a bad divorce or something like that, you ain't been shot at or blown up, crack on. And yes, she has had some interesting comments to make about a certain member of this forum, when I tell her about his views.
  3. Think the guys a bit of a nob. (I voted remain, so what else would I think of him.) But ffs, give it a rest. Someone posted something interesting on Facebook the other day about 4 labor MPs got busted breaking the rules. I'd only heard about 1 of them. So why all the interest in this one? Government advisers are usually faceless people who work in the background, that we don't know the names of let alone recognise. So if the elected officials don't have to quit why should advisers.

    So you've given up taking your info from the matrix now it's fear and loathing in las Vegas. Does adrenochrome exist at all? Yes. Just like Huxley said, adrenochrome is a compound formed by the oxidation of adrenaline. Its main medical use is to slow blood loss by promoting clotting in open wounds. It’s available for purchase online by researchers, with most outlets stating its source is synthetic and its uses are the inhibition of COMT (which deactivates certain neurotransmitters), and the synthesis of prostaglandins (fats involved with blood clotting). When asked for comment, the University of Auckland neuropharmacology and neuroscience departments said it wasn’t on their radar. It’s got a cool name, and some medical uses, but by and large it’s not a very exciting compound. Sorry. Is there a hallucinogenic drug called adrenochrome? In his 1973 book Legal Highs, Adam Gottlieb described adrenochrome as being “physically stimulating” and inducing “a feeling of well-being, slight reduction of thought processes”. It’s unknown whether he ever took the drug or if this was based on hearsay. Legal Highs also contained entries on catnip and guarana, so the bar for a “high” was low. Most reports of adrenochrome throughout literature sound a lot like DMT — it’s very possible Beatniks just gave DMT the cool name “adrenochrome” and the real compound got caught up in the mix. Why are people talking about it now? Adrenochrome is a popular topic in conspiracy circles: it’s a drug of the Hollywood elite, it’s addictive, it’s harvested from tortured children in Satanic rituals, they reckon. The current strain of theory is that a huge amount of celebrities have come down with Covid-19 due to a tainted batch of adrenochrome. Most celebrities classified as “liberal Hollywood elite” are American or British, two nations that have been struggling to manage the Covid-19 outbreak, so it’s not hugely surprising that many have contracted the virus. Adrenochrome harvesting, according to the conspiracies, is done by: drinking blood, heart surgery, or tapping into the brainstem. The adrenal glands are located above the kidneys, so that’s probably where you really want to look. Why does anyone believe children are tortured to harvest adrenochrome? The blame must land on Hunter S Thompson. In Fear and Loathing, the character Dr Gonzo says: “There’s only one source for this stuff… the adrenaline glands from a living human body. It’s no good if you get it out of a corpse.” You could also argue that this conspiracy is weirdly similar to the plot of the film Monsters Inc., and maybe that’s part of the cultural background making this theory seem reasonable to some.

    Guessing this must be some millennial term. Never even heard the word before, let alone associated it with smoking weed.
  6. Depends on what circles you mix in. One group of friends all fairly straight laced. Cannabis would be tolerated, ecstasy frowned upon but probably wouldn't cause any arguements with half the group. Coke a big no, steroids again no, roid rage etc. Other group who all went out and took a lot of ecstasy and smoked a truck load of weed in our younger days. These days, weeds a bit like ffs, grow up, that shits really not good for you. Ecstasy on a rare occasions wouldn't raise any eye brows. Coke at a party, wouldn't be an issue and some would even sneak a few lines. Steroids again, all bad roid rage etc.
  7. Not my bag so don't know personally but there was a study which showed, only heroin was less socially acceptable than steroids.
  8. Did anyone try short term trading?

    https://chatwithtraders.com/podcast/ Check out these podcasts. Don't know what the later ones are like but the first few, he interviews successful traders from different ilks. Swing, Scalp, Penny Stocks etc. Even has one interviewing the guy who first game up with card counting in casinos. (that one's not about trading but very interesting story) Tells the stories of how people got into it what they failed on and how they improved. Most of the stories follow a fairly similar story. Got into it, in a bull market thought they were the s**t because they made money, then screwed it all up before learning how to actually trade. As someone has already said I'd ignore the youtube videos showing there systems, as why are they trying to sell a successful system when they could just make money doing that instead, if everyone copies your style, you margins will get less. I would use youtube to look at one's just explaining how to read certain indicators, not the ones telling you which one's to use. Also worth looking up a book by John J Murphy, you'll be able to find an e copy. I assume you're already aware of tradingview website?

    https://livingwithschizophreniauk.org/information-sheets/understanding-paranoia/ https://mentalillnesspolicy.org/medical/schizophrenia-delusions.html https://kidshelpphone.ca/get-info/psychosis-warning-signs-treatments-getting-help https://www.mind.org.uk/information-support/types-of-mental-health-problems/schizophrenia/about-schizophrenia/ Do you notice some similarities to all these? There's not enough evidence to show whether schizophrenia is caused by smoking weed or if schizophrenics are attracted to smoking weed. But either way, if you smoke weed you are more likely to be schizophrenic. “First of all I began to believe that people were following me. Now I had for some time had an acrimonious dispute with my next door neighbour over an issue of noise and I knew that he was not averse to doing things intended to annoy me, so when I noticed that I was being followed I immediately put the blame on him or one of his friends. However, over the next nine months my perceptions of being spied on progressively expanded to really massive proportions. I started to believe that my post was being intercepted, that my ‘phone was bugged, that microphones and secret cameras had been concealed in the walls of my house and my office. And these were not simply suspicions: I became very quickly convinced of these things and no amount of reasoning would shake that belief. As the illness developed these ideas coalesced into a larger belief, again unshakeable, that I was at the centre of a huge conspiracy involving a very large number of people with enormous power who, for reasons I could not comprehend, were spying on me and harassing me. I took these suspicions to various official agencies including BT, the Royal Mail and the police and shared them with friends and family but ultimately the help that they offered became useless because as time went on I became convinced that those people were also part of the conspiracy.
  11. Sorry, my point was it's changed. As a kid everyone was a spacker or gay. The kids these days are a lot more tolerant. Homophobic or racist insults aren't aren't the norm anymore. They even get this whole transgender malarky. Just add as a kid you didn't understand the terms you were using were racist. You thought ip s**t dog s**t you are it, was more offensive than eny Meany miny mo, catch a..... Etc
  12. Other way round if my school days were anything to go by. Spas Remy etc, was all anyone called each other. Edit - not saying that's a good thing, just in the 80s it was rife.

    I assume it depends a lot on how they make it. From my limited understanding it's not usually the active ingredients that cause the problems. It's what adjuvants they've mixed with it to make it more effective. If there's no need for any, then the vaccine, is probably safe. If they have to use one, that's already been studied, then again probably safe, it's if they have to use a new one, that's where it gets tricky. I'd also assume by the time the vaccine is ready, we'll know the risks the virus posses to us, based on our age and health. If you're over 80 with a health condition, you'll jump on the first vaccine that comes out. Under 60 with no health conditions, you'll be giving it a wide berth.
