Yo, I have some problems, taking lugols and brazil nuts since.
So Iodine and selenium.
Now, I have also a mild, very mild, case of adrenal insufficiency, called adrenal fatigue.
I am eating timed meals and it works, but doing a breakfast every morning is a hassle, want to drink a shake and get over it.
Does Lugols and whey and or olive oil denaturate each other?
It might make my life a bit easier to know that.

Elemental iodine could potentially do this to olive oil:

And it might create a really disgusting gel in the presence of globular proteins like whey.

Why not just take KI salts if you're iodide deficient? Humans don't actually need to ingest elemental iodine which the thyroid oxidizes the iodide anion to atomic iodine. Diatomic iodine never comes into the picture.

Genetic engineering or gmos. I'm writing a research paper about why we need gmos. I can't find any evidence that they pose a risk to anything. Lots of studies show they are fine. Who funds the studies though. A lot seem to be from independent scientists but i dunno. Can we discuss this here? or should I take it somewhere else?
I would really appreciate any input from either side of the argument.
I would especially appreciate any links to unbiased research, since that is so hard to find on this topic.

Just want to give you guys my conclusion on gmos.
There is no evidence that gmos are any riskier than traditional foods. There is evidence that gmos are actually less risky. The truth is we may find something wrong with them in another decade, or another 100 years. There may be other alternatives to feed the growing population. However, until we can figure out those alternatives, we should use genetically engineered crops in developing countries to save millions of lives NOW. There is a rabbit hole of misinformation out there, but there is nothing inherently wrong with GMOs. If people think we are playing god, than god must have created us to do just that. However, that's a religious argument. I personally don't give a shit if they are labeled or not. I just think it's fucked up how many people have died and are suffering because grean peace and other organic corporations are spreading misinformation through propaganda and scare tactics which, in turn, stops farmers in developing countries from growing the food that could benefit their country and increase the farmers own profits as well.
Kind of rambling, i still have shit to do to get ready for my other finals. Hope you guys got the point though.

Radioimmunoassay is basically, they have some chemicals that testosterone binds to, and which changes the radioactivity of the solution (since their radioactive testosterone can't bind to the chemical). Measuring the difference in radioactivity can quantitatively measure the amount of testosterone that binded to the chemical, so they can work backwards to how much testosterone was in the blood.

Gas chromatography is even simpler. using very sensitive equipment, they heat up a very small amount of the serum in some solvent. Chemicals vaporize at different temperatures, and go through a detector (there's a few different types). They can use the signal from the detector to quantify how much testosterone was in that sample, so they can work backwards and determine how much was in the blood.

Also, they might use this:

It's like the radioimmunoassay, only with fluorescence instead of radioactivity. The testosterone binds to some fluorescent things, making them less fluorescent.

Heavenly Blue extraction by Reuben Husslecocke - Thu, 21 Aug 2014 11:18:37 EST ID:Fp629YXI No.75173 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

I'm trying to extract the LSA from heavenly blue morning glory seeds. Normally what I do is:
1: Rinse in Sunnyside brand acetone to get all the non-polar crap out
2: filter and throw away the loaded acetone; keep the grounds
3: Rinse in Mr. Boston brand vodka to get all of the LSA out
4: filter and throw away the seed grounds
5: I should have LSA loaded vodka here
6: boil off the vodka, keep the gunk (resin? oil?)
7: dissolve gunk in water
8: drink & trip

I've read somewhere that I can do an acid-base extraction. I'm supposed to add a weak acid to the product while it's still in the vodka, and the liquid should separate into two phases.
I tried using Il Primo brand vinegar (5% acidity) and my vinigar/vodka/lsa did not seem to separate itself.

The questions:
A: What should I be using for an acid? Is 5% acidity vinegar too weak? Do I have to freeze the mixture to get it to separate?

you need to defat before you freebase you can't extract with vodka if the stuff is stuck in the seed goop. ..

Also unless you get a crystaline material I doubt you will actually be consuming Ergine. if there was a widespread way to make lots of this stuff people would have done it long ago and there would be as good of TEKS for it as there are for pseudo pills, DXM, CwE's for pills, mescaline extracts... but I have never seen an "LSA extraction" from seeds that didn't sound like total bullshit

and most peoples "I washed it with 500cc's of koolaid and kepts the polar layer and went on 40 trips and it metablozied to dxm in vivro and I saw jesus as a moonwalking t rex" I fucking highly doubt that too.

You would have to powder it though a chemical process to get the finest grains possible, plus that would remove any contaminants. Not to mention could be done on a larger scale than grinding a can.

hello, i come from /weed/ in need of science

it's no secret that smoking the resin out of a marijuana pipe can produce a psychoactive high. that being said, one would still have to recombust already combusted material in order to do so, which cannot be good for the lungs.

i recently accumulated, and even more recently gifted, a huge two-gram ball of resin from a downstem on my littlebong; pic related. this downstem has no physical contact with the water of the pipe, it slides in to another female piece that would be the "actual" downstem, so i guess you could say i extracted it from a bowlpiece in close proximity to water. it was moist, but no mold was smelt or visually observed and it took a good few month to accumulate that rez

is there any possible way to further extract the psychoactives from a ball of rez like this? should i soak the rez in Xml of ethanol and remove the solids after a few weeks or will it all simply dissolve and defeat my purpose? i basically want all the goodies without all that black and i'm definitely no /chem/ist, but i'm open to ideas or suggestions. since i don't have the aforementioned sick ball any longer, any real experiments probably won't take place until the downstem is totally full again

any experience/thoughts?

Treat it like trim or stems and make some edibles. I'm sure it has some THC-A already in it but it probably wouldn't hurt to bake for a few minutes at low heat (no more than 325 F), stir that shit in with some edible non-polar solvent ie melted butter, ethanol.

Ofc. I'd like to point out that the nasty aromatic compounds which are plentiful in tar/resin are most of the compounds which give smokers cancer. A good example is benzene, and other polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons like the one pictured; the entire molecule is planar (sp2 carbons) and as a result is basically a pair of p orbitals thin. This basically acts as a molecular 'blade' which slices through larger biological molecules, in particular DNA.

You're talking about bubbles like you blow with loops, right?

Define "stable". Would you consider standard soap bubbles stable?

Air pressure probably wouldn't matter, since it's about the same on the inside as the outside. Temperature probably only plays a role at extremes. Air current is very general.

It's obviously a homework question. They want you to talk about the young-laplace equation for a curved surface and what it explains.

FYI, pressure inside a bubble has to be higher than outside for it to form.
