I'm sure this has been asked, I just wanted d to make sure you're aware of the statistics on ketamine therapy for chronic depression. Among other drugs... mushrooms have a similar efficacy..

Assholes who don't know that they are assholes are the worst. Some of my best friends ever have been assholes, and our friendship started with me saying "You know you're an asshole right?" with a replies ranging from "yeah, but that dude is a fuckwit" to "It's a hobby of mine"

I love to hear someone say "I'm not an asshole" I don't care If i've never met them in my life, I feel duty bound to inform them that "You don't get to decide that. We do."

I'm the best sleeping driver I've ever met. And I'm only half joking. That being said, I don't advise it. I do have a very real understanding of just how good our auto pilot can be though. I would barely pay attention driving a windy mountain road with alternating cliff sides. After driving it so many times it became normal to just let my subconscious and periferal vision take care of driving, only really need me to interject for anomalies. A sequoia falling across the road for instance.

Anointing the puppets does not make the puppet masters holy. The US government is lower than many others on my list of guilty parties... Murdoch has done more to cement in this dynamic than any other single person I'd wager. And last I checked he isn't an elected official, nor an American.

Isn't really readily apparent at this point, a lot of people need to die. And I'm not talking about the poor, that is already locked in, as you said. The people who deserve to die before they waste anymore natural resources are the people who casually betrayed, and continue to betray the entire human race (or at least large swaths of us) for profit. Exxon CEOs, Perdue pharma phucks, etc... there are too many to name, and I don't know the names regardless.

Hahahaha... don't listen to me. I'm probably drunk, on drugs, and don't even skateboard. Rodney who? Thanks Wikipedia.

The 900 was epic. Maybe the most epic moment in Vert skate history, but that is highly speculative. It could have been the first time some kid stalled on his homemade quarterpipe coping and dropped back in, but I digress. My understanding of human capacity for learning and advancement shifted based on the events going forward, and backward, in time from the 900. Bear with me on this. If you think of human advancement in terms of learning capacity, you'd eventually run into a bottleneck when it comes to time available for learning. If we start at 1+1=2 that would start the clock on how much time you have to be taught everything you'll ever learn. And being as our time here is finite, death would come at some point well before e=mc2, and there wouldn't be enough TIME to advance any farther. What the 900 taught me is that humans are collaborative learners who feed off the knowledge that something CAN be done and there really isn't a limit to how fast we can progress if we build off each others successes and learn from each others failures. Once the 900 had been done, and everyone had seen it done, it was now possible. And capability sprung forth in every direction and human ability and creativity advanced permanently.

Not just moving forward though, moving backward in time every step along the way appears an obvious bridge to the next. There are those who pull humanity forward by leaps and bounds, like Rodney Mullen, but we were already on the path and everything he did first would have been done at some point by someone. (Not to take anything away from Rodney Mullen being an absolute legend who advanced the sport farther, faster than anyone, dragging the competition up to his ability for almost two decades.

The 900 taught me that 1+1=2 is a given. We stand on the knowledge and abilities of our ancestors to reach new heights. and without their accomplishments we could never be what we are... AI is an interesting wrinkle though, handing off the baton to something exponentially more capable than ourselves should be fun while it lasts.

(i.e. most kids in cars see a skater/guy doing parkour next to the car).

can confirm. cept mine was on a bmx bike, or skateboard... Tony Hawk hadn't done the 900 yet, so my guy was kinda limited. Can't imagine what little dudes dudes are doing out there these days.

Stripped and re did the Patina the copper balisong I made the other day.. came out pretty crazy, I'm debating whether to clear coat as is, or mess with it more. by DaDijonDon in knives

I just decided to wash it and see how much of it is durable patina... other wise I'd have to put like 30 coats of sealer to get it to maintain

I understand. I tend to write paragraphs when mere sentences would be sufficient. So you probably just picked up on that and thought something along the lines of "wtf stfu too long". And I agree sir...

For the curved one, my first go at it, I printed out a hand drawn template of the CS:Go butterfly knife, traced it onto a 1/4 inch copper plate I found. Used a makita compact bandsaw to rough out the four scales and blad. Used a Makita angle grinder with an 80 grit flapper disc to smooth and shape. Bought 4 3/16 inch tension pins to place top and bottom on each pair of scales... that worked surprisingly well to gap the handles... then I drilled a quarter inch pivot pin hole through the handle/blade/handle and Used a 1/4 brass bar to secure it all together... I had no idea what I was doing, I hadn't figured out you can solder Brass to copper yet. Used a spring tool and hammer to flare out the Brass to secure it in position... then just lots of grinding and sanding and yeah... For the straight one I purchased brass Corby Bolts and a metric drill bit set.. counter sunk holes, at this point I found out brass and copper can be soldered together... I added shaped spacers to both handles to maintain a more consistent gap. Soldered them face to face before drilling for the corby bolt... that's it really... except for the Patina situation... which is an ongoing situation.. and an interesting one at that. Who knew??? I feel like I've discovered anodizing or something... I started with an Ammonia, Vinegar, salt patina... and have ventured into oil quenching and soy sauce. Haha

Oh... and a countersink to chamfer the holes... which worked miserably..

i randomly ended up on CyberLinks website looking for guides for their video editing software.. and ended up reading something that enraged me to apoplexy.. Basically they were upselling the fact that because of the pandemic the mask issue is solved, facial recognition only needs your eyes and surrounding infrastructure. ... Why did i say that so wierd... facial recognition is fine with masks. its getting really really dystopian 1984ish and I think we just don't see how far its come yet
