Help identifying and killing this weed? by Aww_Nice_Marmot in landscaping

[–]bennjammin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

For this weed it will help to damage the plant before application to make holes in the wax coating on the leaves, just take a rake or broom or something that won't break the stems and go to town.

Can anyone tell me what’s on my parsley? Whole plant + soil covered in tiny white grains. (Indoors in Ohio) by InedibleMe in gardening

Brush them off the leaves and spray with very diluted detergent. You could try attracting ladybugs which eat aphids. Neem oil spray also works well. They're a common pest with many solutions.

Authentic Mexican food in the States is only as good as the ingredients, so there's definitely a limiting factor there. Food markets in Mexico have a lot of varieties that aren't grown or imported to the States.

Do you experience a difference between psilocin and LSD? by GerSHAK in Psychedelics

[–]bennjammin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I definitely notice a difference in body load, head space, and visuals between certain substances, others are too close to tell. Metocin has very much less head space and far more visual than psilocybin or most other tryptamines at comparable dosages, AL-LAD is the same for lysergamides. I can't tell the difference between other LSD analogues like 1P-LSD and ALD-52.

If you're talking purely the difference between lysergamides and tryptamines then for me it's apparent within the first 45 minutes which I've taken. The visuals for LSD are much more sparkly and geometric, the body load is lighter, there's usually more vasoconstriction, headspace is usually cleaner, the effects last longer.

Not nearly as much because they're designed for full time operation, have redundant fibre inputs, as well as fully covered under service agreement. The new chain will be display server->fibre->display cube so many less points of failure. Oh and I forgot to mention the backup channel on the existing projector displays is analog so that path looks like dvi->fibre->dvi->vga->bnc splitter, so unnecessarily complicated and annoying to troubleshoot. The dvi-fibre converters seem pretty cheaply made even though they're a couple hundred bucks and we can't rely on all 96 of them to work 24/7/365.

I support a big wallboard and its dvi->fibre->dvi, couple hundred feet distance. The issue is the converters on each end break a lot and I haven't found any suitable for 24/7 operation. The displays we're moving to are direct fibre input, none of the vendors had HDbaseT compatible units.

Do you experience a difference between psilocin and LSD? by GerSHAK in Psychedelics

[–]bennjammin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Shrooms primarily contain psilocybin which the body metabolizes into psilocin (or 4-ho-dmt, 4-hydroxy-dimethyltryptamine). This molecule resembles serotonin (or 5-hydroxytryptamine) enough that it binds to serotonin receptors and acts as a partial serotonin agonist, this is the primary mechanism of action of psychedelics. There are different types of serotonin receptors and psychedelic substances can have affinities for which receptors they bind to. LSD is in a different class and has different receptor affinities, including dopamine receptors. LSD and 4-ho-dmt are only two psychedelics, there are numerous other tryptamines and lysergamides and some are more unique than others, and some are unscheduled. AL-LAD is a lysergamide that for most has little headspace but lots of visuals, with a comparable tryptamine being 4-ho-met. If you read Shulgin's books he explains the synthesis and effects of hundreds of these substances.

Edit: Should also mention 'shrooms' can contain other tryptamines and even biosynthesize substituted tryptamines injected into their substrate. So if you inject methylethyltryptamine into the substrate your mushrooms will have 4-ho-met in them.

Hauled 5 cubic yards of soil up the stairs yesterday with lots of help! by nancyxxu in gardening

[–]bennjammin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's a Palram Glory 8x8 and I have it on a base of 4x4s which are held down with some ground anchor screws. Here it is in the ice storm today.

We're in a very windy area and its right in the path of prevailing winds so I wouldn't be surprised if we lost panels at some point. The frame would need something more substantial to break I imagine.

Edit: The greenhouse is actually level, it's everything else that's on an angle.

[–]bennjammin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've done LSD-25 and shrooms as well as numerous other lysergamides and tryptamines and can say with certainty that not only is there a difference between lsd and shrooms, but also a difference between substances in each class. In the same class the differences aren't always apparent but some are unique enough that they're easy to identify.

Fine white fuzz (mold?) on peat pellets growing lettuce by johnnybaise in gardening

It's just fungus, I don't think it's harmful on it's own but it's a sign there's not enough airflow which can lead to damping off.

Just took 300 ug of al LAD by istayzooted in researchchemicals

[–]bennjammin 2 points3 points  (0 children)

When I tried 300ug the visuals were quite intense, a lot of geometry, but what changed was the auditory aspect and it was almost too intense. Music was an amazing experience but around peak it became more like muddled sound and a room fan began to create feedback and it was really uncomfortable. I changed setting but the feedback didn't fully subside for a good half hour, after which it was fully pleasant again. For that reason I'm a bit hesitant to push the dosage this high again, 150-200 is the sweet spot for me.

Garden Redesign on a Budget by squatland_yard in landscaping

[–]bennjammin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You can make this look good with a lot less than a couple grand, a couple grand could go a loooong way here. For inspiration check out scree, rock, and crevice gardens on Google. All you would need is to do some minor aesthetic changes and prepare the site with gravel, sand, and decorative stones, then blow the rest of the budget on filling it with appropriate no-maintenance plants.

How do i kill this? by cato1986 in landscaping

[–]bennjammin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think it looks great how it is, but you could cover it with something to block the light and kill the plant.

I want to cover this area with mulch. I have no idea where to go from here though. Just spent a few days with a rake and a shovel, getting the lava rocks out. There’s no end in sight, the rocks keep going and going. The top layer is gone at least. I’m delirious at this point. Next step? by traumamamba in landscaping

[–]bennjammin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Figure out the plants you want first, they might love this soil how it is and you won't have to do any more digging. A rock scree garden is an option as well, just 2ft of gravel, sand on top, some decorative rocks, and hardy plants that like to grow in that environment. Much less weeds going forward with that option as well.

Cardboard is better than landscaping fabric, it lasts long enough to kill weeds and composts over time. Landscaping fabric will eventually fail, weeds grow on top of it, etc. and you have this plastic sheet in your soil with roots all through it.

How to fix my soggy lawn? Clay, UK, slight gradient, East facing. by jezmck in landscaping

Second the french drain, or just a weeping tile that runs along the upper area and comes out at the bottom.

What should I plant along the side of my house? by willowgrovetree in landscaping

[–]bennjammin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Check your area before taking this advice but I'd go with planting crocus and tulip bulbs for spring flowers and herbaceous perennials for summer flowering. Something like anise hyssop would likely do well, filipendula rubra (Queen of the Prairie) would be really cool, there's always salvia, peonies, dianthus... a lot would work here.

Edit: Oh just read you want to walk on it. Cerastium or soapwort would work.

Gibson has pretty bad quality control and have been going downhill for years, and most people can't tell the difference between American and Mexican strats. Handwired American amps are quite good but not because they're handwired by Americans.

These shows are full of reused content and don't try to be original. It's not a big money maker or anyone's favorite show, but enough people watch it that it pulls in enough for the network to be worthwhile. People just watch this stuff to tune out and it's made for that.

Coffee suppliers in Canada? by vanhuette in Coffee

[–]bennjammin 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Carvalho in Oakville, they import beans from their farm in Brazil and roast them in Canada. They seem to focus on freshness more than variety but its my favorite option in the area.

A site called idrinkcoffee has some good stuff as well, they have a storefront in Milton but pretty sure they ship.

Reunion Island is getting into more fresh "craft" roasts and they have a monthly subscription.

Detour is another option pretty sure they ship as well. Bit more trendy than the others so the roasts have fun names.

Hardy Rabbit-Proof Perennials (zone 5) by sleepsonrocks in gardening

[–]bennjammin 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Not sure what you have but salvia and hollyhock would probably be fine. Salvia I doubt rabbits would enjoy and hollyhock self seed a lot. Foxglove and Echinacea might be good as well.
