About 15 years ago I found a good-sized patch of somniferum growing along side the Interstate near where I lived. Picked a bunch of ripe pods, let them dry, then shook out the seeds. Put the husks in a blender and made powder outta them (made like 2/3 cup) and poured it into a dark brown bottle full of Everclear (4/5 qyart) and put the bottle in a dark spot in a closet for 2 months. When it was ready I pureed a pound of fresh strawberries, strained out the seeds, then boiled that in a quart of distilled water for 20 minutes. When it was room temperature I poured it and the Everclear mixture into a wine bottle with a screw cap and put it in the fridge. Two shots over ice and byebye for 6 - 8 hours. Never made it again, I liked it a bit too much.

This is supposed to be a method of fermentation. A process that actually does something good to cannabis. It should taste less harsh and not more. whatsoever.
AFAIK farmentation is just like really slow drying.
Opening the container every now and then so the moisture can circulate and evaporate and the (harsh tasting) chlorophyll-molecules break apart (I'm no good in english but in chemistry).
Be careful! There is just a fine line between fermentation and real hazardous mold!

If your referring to curing your bud, yes it is most necessary. I wouldn't say the formerly referred to process is anything like curing. When you cure you have almost all the water out of the bud, and you also open the jar often so you can get rid of the Co2, preventing any type of mold.

How do /HOWTO/

I have a background in design, mainly Photoshop, Illustrator ad Indesign, and I have started making this book of sorts. It is quite a unique book I think, let me try and paint a picture for you guys briefly.

Each double page spread will mainly be digital art relating to a specific subject matter along with a short poem cleverly positioned within the artwork. The subject matter will be relevant to modern day society mainly and explore humanity, the world and our minds.

My question or questions are as follows:
  1. What would be best, an ebook, print or both?
  2. What would be the best way to get it published?
  3. Do you think there would be much of a market for such a thing?

Cheers in advance.

I am attempting to design and build a garbage bin grow chamber. What I have worked out, and this is very preliminary, is that I will use one LED light, a cone of aluminum foil from the light that directly focuses light on the growbed at the bottom. I'm drilling one hole, in which I will put a small fan. That is concern number one: how strong of a fan would I need to force the stanky ass kush air from the garbage can to my window, approximately a meter and a half away? Should I maybe install a larger fan on the top?

Concern number two is the hydroponic grow bed. Now I'm rreeaally new to this, truly out of my element, but I think a small waterbed with a pump that just swirls the water around, alongside careful nutrient and ph monitoring should be enough, right? I'd of course have the roots and clay medium in a cup with ample drainage so it can absorb nutrients.

Will post designs later today, when they are complete.

AS FOR WHY THIS ISN'T IN /CROPS/, because it has more to do with general knowledge of craftsmanship than a question directly related to growing.

No exp using LED's, I usually go with CFLs.

You'd want an array of 6 medium-sized 20-something watters alternating color tempratures between 2700k and 6400k range ("warm white" and "cool white" respectively). Use socket splitters and socket-outlet adapters and you can get thee Y's on a single power-strip. BC you're using CFL's heat isn't as big an issue, they save energy, and you can get some serious lumen out of it if you make a simple reflector out of cardboard and printer paper. You can get your lumen output into the 20k range, and that's really good for CFLs, and if you're only growing like 1-4 plants that's plenty of light and it's like $30 for the full assembly.

Which brings me to my next point, don't use foil! Use white! Non-glossy white surfaces reflect more energy than shinny ones I guarantee you. This is not exactly intuitive. If you're still on about using foil then use the non-shinny side, but straight up printer paper would be the best color to reflect energy off of.

Never fucked with hydroponics, but an easier medium is to use coco-coir bricks and then mix hydroponic nutes with distilled water. Fox Farms has a trio pack exactly for this, and other companies make specific coco-coir nutes. Look 'em up. Be careful not to burn your plants tho!

Dude, if you're new to growing, just do this:

1- 10 Liters pot on the bottom
2- Mesh/grid at about 1/3 height of container. This is for SCROG, aka "using all your available surface for flowers".
3- 150 watts light or just a very good LED on top of container.
4- Fan for intake of air at about 1/2 height of container
5- Fan for air out at top of container. You can use a carbon filter to control smell.

How to use:

1- Put regular feminized seed (not auto!!) in glass of water for about 24 hours.
2- Put seed in pot full of premium growing soil (buy some, don't mix your own unless you absolutelly know what you're doing).
2- Add water
3- Wait until plant's height is above the grid. Bend the plant to go back under the mesh and wait for it to grow up above the mesh. Bend again. Google "SCROG METHOD" for details about this.
4- When grid is almost 2/3 filled by the plant, switch lights to flowering light cycle (12 hours on and 12 hours off).

Bucket, The bigger the better.

Water, clean

Sugar, For the alcohol percentage.

Flavouring, Apples for apple wine (Cider is a bit more complicated) Pears for pear wine etc. Potatoes for vodka (Requires distillation) molasses for rum (Also requires disillation)

Yeast. DO NOT USE bakers yeast. It will work, But the taste is awful and is likely to get infected. (Bakers yeast is intended to work at 40-50 degrees Celsius. Not the 20-30 degrees of alcohol brewing. In practice, It will be ineffective at growth, Decreasing the alcohol:sugar:time ratio. It will also have a lowered ability to fight off infections.)
Basically don't be lazy, Go to a brew shop or look up wyeastlab.com.
Yeast has a very pronounced effect on your drink. Pick it carefully.

Cleaning equipment, disinfecting solutions.

Presses for wine. Stills for spirits.

Depends on several factors.

The only true way to know is to wait untill your brew stops producing gases/bubbles.
Once you're reached that stage you need to wait for it to go clear. Then bottle/barrel it.

This guy probably knows what he's doing. But if you just want to get drunk and don't care about taste, here's the lazy idiot-proof method:
  1. Buy a jug of full-sugar grape juice, some granulated sugar, and some packets of whatever yeast you can find. If you see turbo yeast in the store, try that instead of baker's yeast.
  2. Before you get excited, drink some of the grape juice in order to leave a generous few inches of air space at the top of the jug.
  3. Now get a measuring cup and add to it a little bit of warm water. Not hot, just body temperature or slightly warmer.
  4. Dissolve a little sugar in this warm water. Estimate a few pinches or a spoonful or something; it doesn't have to be much.
  5. Dump one packet of yeast into the sugar water, and wait.
  6. After 10-15 minutes, your yeast should be foamy and bubbly. When this happens, dump the contents of the measuring cup into the jug of grape juice.
  7. Don't shake the jug. Just unscrew the cap a bit so the CO2 can escape as fermentation occurs. Store it in a warm, dark place with some rags or a dish underneath to catch any juices that may overflow.
  8. After an hour, go back and look at the jug. If it's swelling up, loosen the cap a little more so the air can escape. You don't want this sticky mess to explode.

Now you wait. Two weeks is usually enough time for a basic winelike beverage to occur, but if you have the patience, by all means let it "age" for a few more weeks. You can drink it earlier, but it won't have much alcohol and the yeast will still be hard at work. Generally, you should leave it alone until the bubbles have mostly stopped and you can no longer hear it fizzing. If desired, pour the wine through a coffee filter or two to strain out the gunk. Drinking some dead yeast won't hurt you but it might detract from the taste.

Math can predict things nicely in a perfect world, but it can't account for the human element. They want people to press their "luck". They lure you in with a few small winnings here and there, and then they start sapping money from you until you realize that you've been had and finally quit in shame, but by then it's too late. All of this matched bonus and frequent player points crap is just icing on the cake to entice you to stay and press your luck just a little bit longer. They have all your information, so if you try it again later they'll just keep robbing you blind without letting you win anything more. Sadly, a lot of people are gullible as shit and fall for it, and I'll bet some of these marks are even math nerds who haven't learned enough human nature or themselves. They don't understand how vulnerable they are.

Put your math degree to use at a real job and just play for fun, where the game is still honest.

I do some betting on soccer games for fun, but I do it strictly offline for one main reason: I can have my winnings in my pocket as soon the match is over without having to give the equivalent of my arm and my firstborn in (hackable) personal information.

The math is one thing, but mostly it's used by the bookmaker to calculate profits on the bet. The best way IMO is to start mid-season. That way there's a lot of info on the teams and strategies from the first half of the season that you can use to gauge later matches.

Let's say we have a soccer match between Denmark and Germany
Without info I would be playing blind (apart from bet multipliers), and essentially it boils down to a 50/50 match. With info on the team composition and performance over some time, it's easier to gauge the teams' strategies against eachother. If you've seen the 1992 Europe cup (where we beat Germany) compared to Danish play today, you can see what I mean..

Again, the best way to increase chances is to watch the teams in action and to see how they have done previously. This often makes you take the safer bets.

IRL there is no way to predict a match 100%, math or no math, that's only possible if the team is static. If you switch players, the math falls apart; not only do you have a new player with different strengths, but the effort of the previous player has to be counted in as well.

The same goes for poker, even pro players need a few rounds to judge the probability of a given card, flow of cards and the style and expressions of the opponents.

In the end math can tell who the probable winner is by a percentage, but it cannot predict if the stock market's gonna crash next week, that Barcelona wins the next match or that the US will fall apart within 50 years.

sorry dear, no info re:movin' on up in corporate America (or elsewhere), but if you need to type something (such as resumes) that involves the letter 'q', you may want to find your computer's "on-screen keyboard" so you can use that character when necessary.

there are positions that only require a degree from an accredited institution and don't care what the major was. they want to see that you have the stick-to-it-ive-ness to complete the coursework to earn your degree (and that you don't burn out and quit). a lot of state and local (county/city) governmental positions seem this way.

The easiest way would be to found your own company, then, if possible, build it up until it can be subnitted to the stock market. Once there, keep a good part of the stocks for yourself. From day 1 you are the manager and the visionary.

But don't ever think it's an easy job... A proper manager is always too busy for golf.

If you consider becoming a manager for the sake of getting your ass licked by employees or just to have a say, then stay away. you'll be doing more harm than good on the company level.

In order to get a management position, it's also a bonus to bring recommendations and proven results from your previous jobs.

I know this thread is old but if you have an interest in the internal dynamics of most corporations you should check out the gervais principle, it's a series of articles detailing the different kinds of people in a corporate environment and the interactions between them. It's a lot of reading so it will take a genuine interest in psychology or the mind of a sociopath, preferably both. It sheds a new light on most dynamics you see in a corporation, and can be used as a calculus of sorts to help you see where (or who) the path up is. Also it references the office a lot for examples, so be ready for that.

I have tried a few programs in the past for video editing but they always seem to not be complete, IE having to download other converting programs as well and having to go threw many steps to simply edit a clip out of a video or things of this nature.

I simply want a program that can easily cut copy and paste sections of video no matter the file type and be able to easily save it as the file type I wish without it ruining the video or compressing it and making it look like crap or being forced to change the resolution etc.

Doesn't matter if its free or not, just want something simple and complete.

Mainly its for creating gifs and light video editing but it doesn't need to do anything fancy or be able to add tons of effects n stuff.

Also the temp agency I worked at will pay you the same day but you have to be able to get your check from the agency before they close and also be able to make it to the bank. So if you're trying to get paid the same day so you can buy your crack or whatever, make sure you get a job that doesn't work you past 5pm

This depends on which agency you go to. But I know labor ready didn't require any of those and provided everything you need for the job.

for all you dudes with trade jobs, how is it? I was thinking of becoming an electrician but honestly I just want a job where I can feel good about the job I do and still have plenty of free time for fun and stuff.

What are you average hours?
how long does it take to get licensures?
are community colleges and trade schools not scams?

Tig welder here. I work at a plant that manufactures custom ventilation systems ( for firefighters, industrial greenhouses, auto shops, ect). Work in welding can range from shitty, outdoor structural shit up to cushy gigs in air conditioned shops, but industry equivalent of a coffee-fetching intern makes $15 an hour, with the average being 23-27 and if you get into pipe you're looking at 30-50 depending on how experienced you are, how dangerous the job is, and how critical/high quality that weld joint needs to be. I'm in a pretty large shop, so we use shifts, and so my hours are always 7am-4pm monday through friday.

You can get a cert for a specific kind of welding in as little as two semesters, but getting more certs/an associates can take up to two years.

Community colleges and trade schools can be really good, but buyer beware. There's a big problem with "for profit" schools out there that are scams, but the good ones are really worth it.

Accreditation used to be the big thing, but somehow the "for profit" colleges got around it. The big thing to look for is tax payers are putting money into the school. If the tax payers are invovled, the government is over-seeing the program which means that there is no room for scams. For Community colleges, look to see of credits in non-trade programs ( shit like history, math, language, ect) transfers to the nearest 4-year state university. If they don't transfer, it means that that college was probably a shitty scam. If your college is in an office building, a strip mall, or other space that can be bought or rented, its probably a scam, but be careful because some places with traditional outdoor campuses went bankrupt and were then bought out and turned into scams. Also look for partnerships from trade associations, Like the AWS (American welding association) or AMRA (automotive maintenance and repair association). Beware the names "Corinthian college" "Everest " "WyoTech" and "university of phoenix", and understand that if any more than 10% of your class time is supposed to be online that no one will take it seriously.

Look up day labor. Just show up in the early AM, the ones I worked at cash paid after the job. Work faster to get the job done early still get paid what the job agreement was for the job the the service. Haven't seem aything anything different.

Having a car would usually guarantee work, basically always. An obligation if
you haul others is they would give gratuity for giving them a ride and an opportunity
to make money. The services I remember would pay some gas money also.

No car, a bit tougher. Places with regulars, like alcoholics they may not choose you
over them if you are young, as they would not want to cause tension between them and
and the service. This happens at some places but not others.

If you are somewhat focused steady and not hung over all the time maybe seek a job with a painting company for a longer term solution. Work day labor for a while and buy basic hand tools. Painter whited (pants) hand masker, 5-in-one, respirator for interior work.
The company may offer the tools and take the cost out of your paycheck. Some may
just have the tools but it is better to own your own tools. A small grate and small
roller may be needed, along with a brush.
