There was a snowstorm where the servers are. It got so cold that it started to go below absolute zero, resulting in particles moving backwards in time. So here we are.

the letters ive written to multiple universities and kirt have yet to be answered. quite shocking if you take into account that the grant i asked for was a mere 1000 dollars (adjusted for inflation during the experiments), which according to my alculations would be the mere minimum to fund a trial. further research would obviously take much less time once the direction of time travel isnt limited to forward and side effects such as pissing myself are minimized. this far ive been able to travel up to 4 days at 1 litre of fuel per day traveled

I checked out all the boards here as a teen cus there are so many devoted to so much
this chan is the tightest shit

Anyway my guys

I have done LSD and I have grown shrooms
more into the shroom thing
Im really interested in altered states of consciousness
like how the LSD works in the brain
also making it, Im sure this is a very stereotypical post but I really am going back to school and not fucking up (hopefully)
I am good at computers and originally was in-between a degree in art and getting a credential to teach kindergarten
Im good with kids and around 80k a year and grading "the colors"
would be the peak of mediocrity for me and just let me coast and die which sounds nice
I am also decent at computers and thought I could do data science things
BUT I believe I can probs pursue data science and art on my own
& would rather go a little harder and choose a biotech science that involves the synthesis of chemicals
or something that would lead me to nanotech or cyborg shit
I am excited to school I would like to science these are my words please help me

Would love to help but not really seeing a question in there. I think like most people at your stage you need to explore your options and really come down on a few possibilities...this is more /qq./ As for trying to synthesize LSD, it's one of the more difficult ones out there, you need advanced practical biochemistry...you probably should try your hand at basic tier chemistry before you can even answer the question of if it's something you would want or be capable of doing.

einstein and bohr thought the new understanding of the atom would bring world peace, and then were really sad about something something in japan, when the atomic bomb actually stopped the cold war from becoming hot. thus most of the suffering got diffused by splitting up germany and korea, bombing vietnam, laos and kambodsha with enough bombs to make the whole thing seem like a death cult ritual and further destabilizing the craddle of civilization, as if the first world war didnt do enough damage, by shoving arms up the asses of whatever warlord was trendy. also something in latin america something something

What kind of time traveling technology are we going to have in the future?

200 years ago the best way to view past events was through art, paintings, drawings, or written text.

In the present we all have smartphones that can record audio/video at any given moment giving us an exact copy of the present for viewing in the future. There is also youtube and other major databases of video/audio from the past that is an exact copy of reality at that given time and setting in the video.

What is coming in the future? Is it 10s of thousands of years from now, hundreds? We're clearly going to have something that is just as much of a mind blowing leap as paintings -> recorded video. Are we finally going to be able to communicate and interact with the past in real time?

Yes, but all are much more complicated than a reagent kit and if you can't buy or use a reagent kit you won't be able to do those. Things like melting point measurement, x-ray diffraction, GC/MS, MS/MS, HPLC/MS, IR spectroscopy, UV-VIS spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy, conductometrics, gel-electrophoresis, etc. Just buy a fuggin reagent, or make it yourself: 4% of concentrated formaldehide, 96% of concentrated sulfuric acid. I heard in USA you can buy cc. H2SO4 as drain cleaner/declogger. Formaldehide is sold in the pharmacy. Mix it slowly while cooling, allow it to sit a few hours than drop a drop on a little piece of your X, if it turns purple it's something containing the methylenedioxy moeity, and since almost all possible drugs containing it are illegal now, why would someone bother making something like MBDB or Methylone or etc when he can make MDMA easier, cheaper and just as illegally.

How the fuck do they know what's happening inside of living things? Particularly with neurochemistry. You've got, let's say, a working brain. It's full of juices. You've got a science lab. How do you go about separating which juices are which and determining how they behave in the living brain?

Graphene is very interesting nanomaterial for me. I heard that grapheneis widespread and used in electronic. It has next characteristics Carbon > 99, 6%, Thickness (nm): < 3.0 , MB surface area (m2/g): ~80, Density (kg/m3): 2,2, Bulk density (kg/m3): 120, Electrical resistivity (Q.cm-1): < 0.15. I think you need to find graphene in special laboratories like it http://mstnano.com/products/graphene/

It takes a really long time and a lot of work and most of the time you will be wrong or overly simplistic in your interpretation of what is going on. Serotonin for example was so named because they believed at first its primary function was modulating the consistency of blood serum.
For the specifics though, the way they tell which neurotransmitters affect what is by looking for ligand receptors at the synapse. The neurotransmitter works by being a 'key' for a specific molecular lock on the receiving cell, which initiates its action potential to propagate a shifting ion gradient through the dendrite. Then, they follow the trail of that neuron chain's axons until they get to something that's a muscle or sensory cluster (or backwards, to a specific region of the brain) and then end up saying something like 'these neurons are part of a pathway connecting this behavior/sensation to control from this brain region, modulated by this neurotransmitter.' If you noticed this is not much different than the room of blind men describing an elephant by grabbing different parts, grats, you've been paying attention.

Got any recommendations for reading? Uncle fester and schulgin are the only ones i know of and both are above my pay grade.
What glassware is required? Recommended?
Any recommended materials sources?

Thanks

Those books are pretty old and a lot of the ingredients lists have either been put on lists or simply become less available/more expensive due to normal market reasons, such as decreased demand and production and industry standards leading to different choices. It's quite possible that where OP is, the specified list of requirements could be 10x what he actually needs for the synth.

Maybe this is a dumb question. But I'm going on my annual wikipedia dive on nuclear disasters.

If they built all of these like 500m below the surface and covered in heavy rocks or concrete/steel wouldn't most of the effects of a total melt down be contained by the ground?

It seems like the worst part of a subterainian melt down vs one on the surface is there is probably a mini earth quake in the area.
But in my mind it seems most of the fallout and radiation would be contained, you only have to worry about ejected materials and chuncks i suppose?/
And as long as your reactor isnt near any fault lines i dont see any real danger.


Also after a melt down it seems itwould be much easier to fix the problem if its in a giant hole in the ground vs sitting in the middle of a russian village.

IDK, educate me internet.

>>Why isn't it used everywhere?
It's a more advanced technology that isn't as fully developed, so everything about it costs more. And, even if it were at the same economy of scale, an individual unit of fuel costs more, since it must be transmuted from thorium to uranium first. The only savings are in safety and waste concerns, and those are long term costs which people like to ignore in favor of short term ones.

This is just my understanding, I could be wrong. It seems mainly because were stuck with the old reactors because they cost so much to build that we more or less have to use the old ones for a long time until they've paid for them selves or outlived their usefullness or economic sustainability.

Then also the whole industry is standardized around the old technology. So to switch to a new one would be like a major format shift that the entire industry would need to adapt to, and it just costs too much money.
Also you would need to train a whole new generation of nuclear power plant operators on a new type of reacor. Where I imagine that most of the work is still on old reactors, why train for the new ones?

Power generation can't occur solely in one specific place. It's decentralized for a reason: power transmission is not an efficient process over massive amounts of distance. It's the same reason the old "why don't we just build massive solar arrays in the Sahara to power the world" trick won't work. It's not enough to generate the power, you have to wire it to the locations that consume power. Resistance, even for highly efficient conductors like copper wire, plays a big role in determining the power grid and its constituents.

so i was thinking of making some chloral hydrate but i would prefer to avoid fucking with chlorine gas then i had this idea basically use the same same method as for chobutanol but replacing the acetone with formaldehyde then either just use the tricholroethanol as is or oxidize it with probably dichromate and sulphuric acid to chloral. dose anyone know a reason why the reaction used to make chloral hydrate would not work with an aldehyde as well as it whould work with a ketone?

I was looking up how to extract DMT and apparently it's most commonly done with Mimosa Hostilis root bark. Looking at the guides it's very MacGyver tier. I'm saying I'm wondering if there is a more professional way of doing it. Essentially I'm asking, if you ever looked into extracting DMT and if you have the chemistry background, what methods of extraction do you prefer/recommend and do you have any advice regarding it? Perhaps a mistake that commonly diminishes the quality of the extraction or some deviation from the existing guides to end up with something more pure.

TLC is most often distribution chromatography ( with a smidgeon of absorption chromatography) , meaning its more about polarity of the substances than about their weight itself (though there often is an indirect relation between weight to affinity). you basically have a solvation hull on your substrate and the mobile phase flows above that, depending on the polarity of a substance it moves between the stationary and the mobile phase, thus seperating from other substances. ive made a nice animation for that shit but im too paranoid, ill see if i find a comparable animation

in theory you should get one band per compound of your mixture but high concentrations or an unsuitable eluent may lead to streaking and improper seperation depending on the number of theoretical seperation stages.

in the OP scenario TLC would only serve as an analytic tool, even column chromatography couldnt really yield a lot of DMT doses

youd be seperating by molecular weight if the different compounds had no intrinsic dipoles. i used to hate chromatography since its such a bitch ass compromising bullshit way of seperation... wait theyre all based on equilibrium

you can do TLC on a large enough plate after plating it on glass and then chisel the silica or alumina off it to extract it back out

you can do that up to like 2g of a sample depending how many silica coats you do and how patient you are. works for analytic and organic chemistry. definitely not for others. but then again, if you're operating with fucking oxymorphone or dmt or cocaine for personal usage, this may be viable.

One is left with impure methylamine. The stuff includes ammonia chloride.
Is this fine? Is one to assume that when using the adulterated methylamine in later reaction that the ammonia chloride wont matter?

Step 3 says to "flood the reaction contents with 1.5 L of slightly acidic water"
Mix in what container? Largest container called for is 1000ml RBF
