I've done Indonesia and NZ. Always put my juice in my toiletries bag along with my device (Checked luggage). And always batteries in carry on. They're far more concerned about your batteries than they are about your nic juice.

Hot tip, put your tanks and juice containers in a quality zip lock bag. That shit can leak big time with the pressure changes

Yeah ziplock bag with a paper towel, worth it to contain the mess. Security used to like that but they don't really care anymore. Last time I flew domestic they were like wtf with my mod on the xray but once I told them what it was they couldn't have cared.

In the year since I flew its gotten a lot more relaxed. Last year they used to ask me to put things in ziplock bags and now they don't care.

Brisbane ent here too.. Welcome to the community.

The local law states :

"A person who, having the lawful care or charge of a child under 12 years, leaves the child for an unreasonable time without making reasonable provision for the supervision and care of the child during that time commits a misdemeanour. Maximum penalty — 3 years' imprisonment"

I notice u posted in Celsius. Not sure if you're in Australia but here its 100% illegal. Pain yes but its a hot country so risk of overheating is definitely a thing, and we're a nanny state. Either way u get my support.

Along with everyone else, no employer has cared much about an exam score even with exams they've asked me to take (eg UCCX Specialisation exam); they just want the pass mark for the Cisco Partner stuff, or Learning Credits etc..

I'm odd cuz when I cook stoned I get creative and gourmet lol.

Rendang that simmers for hours.

Whipped red kidney beans with rice.

Spaghetti bolognese of course.

Thai green curry.

Yeah, going to Coles while high sucks. End up with copious amounts of chocolate milk, salt and vinegar chips for days, strange looking fruit that I never eat, and of course a million ingredients for some wild dinner recipe that I found earlier in the day.

One time I made two loaves of bread from scratch, in the oven. I nursed them for hours then just sat on my are with the butter and fresh hot bread - that was a great time.

But for toasties I can't turn down a rueben sandwich - pastrami, sauerkraut, cheese and thousand island sauce.

Its always right twice a day... Don't worry, I can never CBF replacing batteries in clocks or setting their time right.

Get some good laughs at confused people who think its quarter past six when they only arrived ten minutes ago at two...

Compare US vendors too. On large orders I will usually go to ECigExpress, they are far cheaper than Aus and have a large range so I don't need to split the order up. When dropping a couple hundred on a new order, they're usually the cheapest even when factoring in shipping. Small orders I usually just go VE or JuiceFactory depending on stock levels...

I took this as a fairly positive article about a real problem with MMJ access in Australia.

Nice to see that this wasnt just bashing the plant.

Also interesting to note that there is a high level of support for MMJ among GPs, especially after reading the article yesterday claiming it was useless for pain treatment. There is a very pragmatic feel about the approach in this one.

There is chiropractic which involves adjustments and then their is a huge hodge-podge of other stuff offered in some chiropractic offices. Supplements, chakra alignments, warnings about fluoride & vaccines, permanent magnets as health devices, weird claims and products to alkalize your body, on and on.

I think adjustments have helped me but I'm sure quite a few chiropractic practices include a lot of bullshit. Not all, there are chiropractors who only do adjustment and related manipulations.

see more

I agree, while I've spoken to chiropractors that claim they can cure any ailment my main one never made those claims, and refuted them when I asked.

He was more into sports medicine, massage and living a healthy life. We would often chat about correct posture when I was weight training. He would give temporary relief of the regular back pain that cones with office work, and was subsidised by my private health insurance so why not when its free, right.

But I agree, if I wanted a permanent fix I'd go to a physiotherapist. The muscles hold your bones in place, so you're much better off to train the muscles than to keep moving the bones.

"While they found most people “perceived it to help”, in reality, it didn’t really change their level of pain." So people report less pain, and pain is subjective... What's the issue?

see more

Yeah I don't get it either. If they perceive less pain, using a medicine that is a whole lot safer then isn't that a thumbs up? To me, that is a win.

Overall another poorly reported article with little detail as to what or how patients were receiving their dosage - was it just flower? Was it a tincture? What were the levels of CBD and THC in their doses? Were there controls given a placebo?

No real substance at all. All we can conclude is that some random study looked at something else random and came up with an equally random result. I wonder if someone can find the real published study documents. Note that this wasn't sourced from any peer reviewed journal either, its just appeared.

Until there is some evidence to this article I call bullshit click bait and agenda pushing.

Another negative article about cannabis today. Someone is pushing an agenda to make us criminals. This is absolutely obscene...

I hate how they call cannabis, weed. I hate that word “weed”. To me the word weed is too closely connected to all the negative bullshit whipped up by the police and media over the years since the war on drugs. Which is why I guess the media keeps using that word as it’s probably subconsciously still doing harm to the ignorant public. I dunno. Shits fucked.

see more

Yeah I try to stick to Cannabis, that's the only name the plant really has. I always thought weed, because it grew like a weed (could start calling my tomatoes that too). And, marijuana was introduced as FUD during the Reefer Madness campaigns in the US, with marihuana being the name given to cheap, crappy (probably illegal) Mexican tobacco.

LOL. It's almost too sad and anger-inducing to be funny, but that gif of the cop busting in the front door and rushes in to the grow room thinking he's a fucking bad ass and then kinda just stops, like "Fucking PLANTS!!!! I GOT YOU!"

I was reason on mobile so I misses that badass.

Some good points though; we don't want Vietnamese PGR shit, we don't want that untaxed money going overseas, and we don't want power stolen from the grid. I think it was a missed opportunity to explain to the public that we could tax this, we could keep money in the country and in the hands of Aussie farmers and they could pay their electricity bill like everyone else.

I was disappointed that this article never tried to explain how we could address this problem, with regulation and legalisation one method of removing the current black market. Given the relatively prop legalisation bias I've seen on ABC this tear, this article strikes me as possible fearmongering and seems to have an agenda.

any attempt to legalise its use will only line the pockets of organised crime groups.

I thought I was going to read the article but I didn't even clear the first paragraph, absolutely disgusting.

I found that quite an interesting quote, actually more like puzzling. Wouldn't an organised crime group who sold a legal, regulated product become a legal company just by the nature of product they sold. You can't be a criminal by doing something legal.

I really hope that some common sense prevails in people reading this. Maybe this was an onion news piece...

If there's no patch panel for them in your apartment then they're probably useless for your home network - because you have no way of connecting them all together.

Could be used to deliver a service, maybe someone once offered Ethernet internet to residents. Could be used to deliver POTS service, I've seen RJ45 used for this even though its not the ideal jack. Could it have been a hotel at one point? These could've been used for in room services. At a stretch, could the building have once been office space?

Who knows until you start tracing cables back to wiring closets or basements. Then you need to consider distance, if the runs are longer than 100m then they probably provided some service other than Ethernet - maybe VDSL, POTS, ISDN etc

I live in Australia and this is where I am familiar with cabling in buildings, so in other countries things could be vastly different.

I wonder where your teacher got that info. That’s generally not how any of it works.

I believe about being paid to write a positive review. This is like those sponsored articles u see by journos in news, where they might go on and on about how good the new emirates first class cabins are. Well, little do we know that emirates also gifted them a first class holiday. Journalists are meant to disclose if they've been gifted anything or received payment from a company that they're running a story on. Critics may not fall under the same journalistic code of ethics. Not this isn't quite advertising, its more like persuasion. They aren't explicitly asked to do a positive review, but if you're showered with excellent gifts, you're probably going to write something fairly positive.

Note, I live in Australia so the journalist code of ethics may be different elsewhere. And, even though the code exists a lot of journalists do not disclose their arrangements with company's.

I live in SE QLD and see an optometrist in Tweed Heads. Not much help to you but they do exist, I've been seeing this optometrist since I was in grade two, probably like 20 years. He gives a shit and has the patience to explain everything in great detail. I've seen an opthalmologist and he didn't seem to care much, was always very late for appointments, rushed so it was hard to get more information, spoke in a lot of jargon, mumbled and had a thick Scottish (?) accent.

Basically, don't loose hope cuz there are doctors out there that give a shit, that enjoy their job helping people.

Try seeing some optometrists to find one that knows about kerataconus. My guy in Tweed has all the topographic machines and seems to know what's happening, and what's new for kerataconus treatments. All my appointments are completely bulk billed so there's no out of pocket.

This might work for you. Going around some bulk billed optometrists so you're not spending so much money on specialists, who in me experience tend to think they're gods gift to this world.

Hope you find a good one, and you can get some sight restored.

I use methylated spirits and rice. Works well enough. Open to suggestions though. How does everyone else clean their pieces?

Used to have a lemon citrus spray which would dissolve everything, was the best to clean the tar off bongs but its rare as hens teeth now...

Nice, in the time I signed it went from 3 to 14 including myself..

Just seemed to be a natural progression for me as I got older. Less time drinking, more time smoking.

Plus, I was getting annoyed with the side effects of drinking - the poor sleep, the hangovers, the vomit from too much, the spins etc. I was sick of wasting half a weekend with a hangover, feeling shit and unable to eat.

With weed I can have a great night, stay up late, sleep well and still be able to get up at a normal time to enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Its also cheaper for me. Could easily drop $400 in a night going out drinking...

Have we all forgotten the NSA leaks that have occurred the last few years?

Yes, government agencies have backdoors in devices. Some of these are at a hardware level and thus completely hidden from the manufacturer, some are zero day exploits in software that intelligence agencies find and do not report. I've read things like all Cisco devices have hardware exploits from US governments, to the same extent u could expect this if brands like Huawei and the Chinese government.

Don't be fooled, intelligence gathering is huge business and the reach it has is very wide.


Hi all,

My SO is interested in trying some CBD oil for medicinal purposes - anxiety and colitis. We've read some mixed opinions about its effectiveness and I doubt it'll hurt to try. Her hospital has said its all good to try.

Wondering about other peoples experiences with this in Brisbane. Availability? Prices?

Oils are new to me so I have no clue about it. Does it come in different strengths? Is there anyone in here using the oil for some ailment?

Thanks guys, keep tokin..

I use CBD for anxiety, I buy the full spectrum CBD from NuLeaf Naturals. It’s US based but I always receive my orders in about 2 weeks with no issues. It is a bit expensive but they have sales regularly.

Thanks. Have u ever had problems with customs? Do they do discreet shipping? What's the effect u got for treating anxiety, or rather how much has it helped? How much dosage do you take?

3 points · 1 month ago

No problems with customs. If I remember correctly, the packaging just says “herbal tincture” or something like that.. so pretty discreet. It has helped reduce my anxiety but only when I take it consistently (daily) for like a week or two. It didn’t work for me as an “instant” anxiety relief whenever I felt like it, the effect seemed to build up over time. The dosage on the back says 10 drops for 24 mg of CBD but I read a lot of studies that use between 40-200mg per dose, so I try and do about 20 drops per day (~48 mg).

Thanks for the great info on dosage. I'm glad it has helped you. I'm checking out nuleaf.

Do u know if it would show on a drug test, specifically a roadside test by police?

I'm working on a CUCM deployment with an ISR4331 CUBE gateway, The CUBE terminates the telco SIP trunk and also has FSX ports (for fax machines) and an FXO port for an incoming POTS line.

Calls in and out of the SIP trunk to CUCM work perfectly fine. Calls outbound from the FXS ports work perfectly fine. Calls inbound on the FXO port work fine. The FXO port has a PLAR on it.

The problem is when ringing one of the numbers assigned to the FXS ports, it ends up matching a dialpeer and sending the call to the FXO port (and, thus rings the PLAR). I cannot get the calls to match the DP for the relevant FXS voice-port.

I tried shutting down the dialpeers for the FXO ports, yet, calls still somehow end up ringing the PLAR.

I'm stumped and an engineer I work with (who has a wealth of CM experience) is also stumped.

Here's a link to the relevant parts of the config;

And, here's a link to the output of debug voice dialpeers inout;

Really hoping someone here can see where I am stuffing up the config. This router is also running SRST, so I have a lot of the SIP stuff in voice class tenant (for the ITSP). I only have the one tenant setup for DP's to the telco. I didn't set up a second tenant for DP's to CUCM. I also didn't setup Dial-Peer Groups as per the SRST guide I was reading, not sure if that could be causing me grief.

Thanks ...

I've read that weed will increase testosterone. Just a quick fact for you all. Keep tokin' :)

I'd rather not find out. Sure modern building standards might help mitigate this risk, but you'll be covered in a conductive liquid, under a conductive pipe. Would you trust your protective earth to function if you're house is hit by several thousand volts.

I'd say not bullshit.
