Recently I found ZINK, which means "zero ink", and I'm super happy!
In short, it's an alternative to ink printers. It heats up crystals inside a sheet which then spread colors.

I wonder how else we can apply this...

Isn't this similar to existing thermal printing, just with layered crystals instead of a dye? Sounds like it'll have similar caveats: fade over time, external heat will cause inking where undesired if stored in a hot environment (car, direct sunlight). The paper will also be unable to be recycled by a standard plant (chemicals, yo), too expensive for casual use, etc.

Eh, 6/10, great use of buzzwords, decent application of science, decent end-goal, great execution, but poor idea in practice.

Now instead of paying $80 worth of ink, we will pay $70 worth of paper!

The idea is to remove the need for individual ink cartridges; thus no one color has to be replaced. just the paper itself needs to be supplied.

but, also, it isn't a household item so i don't see how effective that's gonna be.

Alright, I'm coming to the science board cause the question I have needs to be answered in a scientific way. What exactly is this genderqueer stuff and the gender dysphoria, does it have a scientific foothold or is it merely Tumblr "I'm Special" things. I'd appreciate multiple answers, even if it is your own opinion.

it is a thing. It is not as widespread as tumblr would like to believe. The most represented group in the cluster are homosexuals. They are still less than 5% of the population.

There are studies that show these people have different hormonal make-ups... that being said, I would really appreciate if they could put on some pants during the pride parade...

Imo its just cuz we keep saying that everyone is unique and that there is a place in society for everyone... when you look at it there really isnt and a good number of people(me2) dont contribute to society

Hypothesis: Op is faggot because he likes dick in his ass

I shall have to run an experiment with OP's asshole and gain a couple dicks, 5 should do. I would then proceed to stick 5 dicks into OP's ass, one after another, to gain enough data to form a conclusion.

"This just in: Nuclear Fusion only a decade away since 1960!"

That wasn't really a nuclear fusion plant, not even close. It did one of the easier parts of the process: heating and pressurizing the hydrogen gases. Now we just have the tiny problems of actually capturing any energy, getting more out than we put in and developing materials that won't fall apart due to intense, non-stop neutron bombardment.

However, ITER solves all but the last one and will be an amazing step for human kind if it truly works.

Personal Note: Be careful. While there are no known health risks to the chemicals themselves, production of dye does often involve some dangerous stuff: namely lye and naphtha. Ensure it is properly cleaned (through a re-x or self-extraction if necessary).

Many of those who have experienced this dye report incredibly intense experiences, which may too much for you to handle suddenly. It's often recommended to start with a lesser dye first; some people talk about "LCD" or something, perhaps eat a salad of mushrooms? Then you may want to consider small amounts of dye before going for a full tye-dye. If you think you're ready, by all means!

As well, it's often best to not take anything in that world for reality. If you do, remember to stay in touch with this one. There will be no damage to your faculties, but our experiences shape who we are. It's often taken as incredibly spiritual, and for all we know it's true, but the "real" world is happening now, so appreciate it.

What a coincidence, I just did an A/B extract to get some dyes from ACRB myself!

I'm not sure what this "DMT" stuff is, but my goldfish loves to smoke the dye I get out of it. He says the highs are incredibly intense and vary wildly depending on the environment, person, dosage, etc. You'll almost always get jitters as you go in, he always smokes some herb first to relax. Meditate, slow the heart. Assuming proper technique and a good dose, here's how this will play out:

First hit, your blood pressure will rise, you'll start to feel some anxiety and fear as it begins to hit. This usually goes away within 30 seconds or so, so power through! You'll feel a kind of pressure all over your body, like gravity got turned up to max. Time will start to slow. With open eyes, things begin to warp and you may start hallucinating slightly.

With a second hit, it gets much more intense. You start feeling your mind slipping from your body, you'll hardly be able to move. It becomes difficult to judge distances, to sit up, to keep your eyes open. You're calming down from the anxiety, things mellow out a bit and it becomes extremely pleasant. Closing your eyes shows beautiful geometric patterns, perhaps even impossible geometry. You're melting away.

With the third hit, if you can, BOOM. You're in hyperspace. Anything can and will happen here. In a mere 20 minutes, you will experience so much that you may never be able to explain. It will feel like lifetimes have gone by, yet almost like no time has passed at all. It's truly something that can't be compared to anything else. You will maintain almost all rational thought during, though remembering anything before the high will be difficult and remembering anything afterwards similarly hard. Sometimes you'll have some semblance of control, sometimes you'll have none at all, just in it for the ride. Your body will just laze around, you won't have to worry about eating anyone's faces or getting hurt. But having a trusted buddy never hurts.

The come-down repeats step 2, and you'll want to try to record as much of your experience as possible. The memories are fleeting if not cemented. Don't worry, phase 1's jitters won't come back.

He recommends visiting the /r/dmt subreddit as well as the dmt nexus online, for some great trip reports, advise, and a nice community!

For the record my education is in Mechanical Engineering so don't take my word. I think you would have to let each seed start growth on its own and once the saplings are developed you somehow splice them together by cutting them down the middle and tying them together.

I'm just transferring knowledge from a friend who does stuff with apple trees so I could be completely wrong.

yeah i heard of cutting branches off fully grown trees and attaching them to the other tree while its still good to like when you get your finger cut off. but i was hoping i'd be able to do it sooner since trees take so long to grow

I don't think it's possible to provide empirical evidence of an arching body of water. and as such, the current evidence fails to harmonize with RET.

“Since any given body of water must have a level surface, no one part higher than another, and seeing that all our oceans are connected together, it follows that they are all of the same level.” -The English Mechanic, 26th, June 1896

Now, i'm not going to take any strong position on the matter. i am agnostic on this issue. i'm simply pointing out that certain evidence does in fact support an alternate hypothesis and goes against the current paradigm.

Went out tonight to take out my scope expecting to have a nice night (dat 6% cloud cover) and froze my ass off. This is from about a year ago, i have other pics if anyone wants to see them.

If you want to know more about astronomy, ask away i am here all night.

I have an app on my phone that shows that the planets are in a line. I just wanted to say that the light from Mars, Jupiter, and Venus looks beautiful even though it's just a dot in this city night sky. Do you think that the moon is really the moon you learn about in school? When I'm walking down the street and with folks, it's always in the corner of my eye and in the third eye.

What do you actually do when you astronomise? Not being dismissive, I just don't know the purpose.

Set up the telescope, get comfy , and a pretty girl and look at all the cool shit in the sky. Only certain points in the year you can see certain objects, but i am a big pussy when it comes to working in the cold.

I guess. I know of some guys who observe certain objects and record on them weekly.

If you register with NASA and find an asteroid you can have it named after you. Which would e pretty fucking cool if it swung by earth and threatened to kill everyone.

I want to buy a star in the idea and hope that in a thousand years when we're colonizing systems that my certificate would have some type of ownership for my next generation and own some planets or it's resources. I think that's a good idea.
