DMRT1 inhibition? Fri, 12 May 2017 10:49:39 -0700 katngreen 2023@/discussions -- and was kind of curious about whether there were ways to inhibit DMRT1 expression for an adult human, say, myself >_>. Its more hypothetical than practical, since I don't even know where to start suppressing a gene or its activity in an adult human, but - IF there were a way to do something like that it seems like it could save me (and other trans folk) a lot of time and trouble (or make me really sick and have terrible health complications in some way... hopefully not). Obviously if it worked well I wouldn't be fertile or anything, but it could mean an end to taking hormone pills my whole life...
It looks like in mice this was achieved using, well, tamoxifen inducible cre transgenic mice  + tamoxifen, but I really don't understand cre/lox recombination.. found a wiki on it here that gives me a few clues. . But I really don't know the subject matter well enough to tell yet if they're talking about using the enzyme or whatever to do gene splicing on the embryo or whether it can be done during an animals lifetime (or how that might interact with immunology, etc).
--update -- reading up on the cre-lox process here seems to indicate that its usually done to the parent, and then the kids have the modified genes. Foo;P
Just.. theoretical biohacking here, I'm not crazy enough to try this (I don't think). Unless I was able to do it to a mouse, but I'd kind of feel crappy about doing that to a mouse, even, and I have a pet snake, so I'm not all that nice to mice.... just, wishful thinking + curiousity mostly

Help Super-Heavyweight Bodybuilder/Powerlifter Run Farther, Faster! Thu, 16 Mar 2017 23:27:26 -0700 Aeternaeon 1981@/discussions
To compensate for my heavy frame, I've adopted chi running to minimize the impact on my joints and make the effort more efficient. However, it's general rule that heavy guys just can't run that far and it's proving to be a difficult task to break that rule. Currently I can make it about 2-3 miles before my legs REALLY start aching and this is at a slower pace than I ran at 210. I train by running as far as I can then jumping on the elliptical so I can finish myself off.

Needless to say I am not all natural. I am full of all kinds of supplements and drugs, currently I am on LGD-4033, TB-500, creatine, pterostilbene, Niagen, and a cocktail of spices like turmeric, black pepper, ginger, cayenne, etc. suspended in coconut oil with allantoin that I simply eat a teaspoon of everyday. A big part of my bulking up was done with superdrol. Proper PCT has always been performed and my hormone system remains strong, also probably due to me using SARMs now in place of harsher steroids.

This is also completely aside from a "mental" regimen of alpha-GPC, phenylpiracetam, and noopept. Occasionally I take other things as well like red reishi, cordyceps, and matcha green tea. I also semi-regularly submit myself to tDCS.

I have magnetic implants but none that have any effect on physical performance (they hold up surprisingly great with me lifting massive amounts of weight with those fingers!)

Now I want to be able to run like I used to. I know I'll never be able to naturally, so I'm looking for unnatural solutions cause I'm already operating different than a natural human at this point. I know that sodium bicarbonate and beta-alanine can help buffer lactic acid. I've also read that sodium citrate can turn to sodium bicarbonate after consumption and may also help oxygen saturation by raising pH levels - but I admit the whole pH thing seems to back and forth I don't know what ACTUALLY does what.

Anyone have any ideas here? No matter the method I'm interested in hearing. My main obstacles to running farther, aside from the obvious issue of mass, are;

1. Lactic acid build-up.
2. My cardio/oxygen saturation
3. Muscle tension from powerlifting

The goal is to run farther while still being massive and able to lift large amounts. I want to BREAK the rule of big guys not being able to do things like this, just for the sake of doing it.

DIY flex NFC for much cheaper (Please don't call it a flexNT even if it is a flexible nfc implant ) Thu, 13 Apr 2017 04:25:11 -0700 Benbeezy 2005@/discussions So I have been doing a lot with the flex pcb things lately for another project related to bio hacking, but as a part of that project I am using super small, super thin nfc chips.

Things to know:
- the larger the antenna the better the read range
- the ones I am showing you you'll still have to coat your self!
- none of this is "safe" but I like to grind in a very DIY way, I know I'm crazy

- here are 6 of them at about $2 per chip. 
You can take these are really make them smaller by cutting the extra parts off the edges as long as you don't cut the copper antenna
- these ones are a little bit larger, so better range for sure
- this one also has extra pads on the antenna so you can add a different chip to it if you want (does work if you put an iclass chip on it)

Extra info:
- So both of these keep the nfc chip part on the antenna with this black glue stuff, very common, works fine, but it is thermal glue if you want to take the chip off and put your own chip on the antenna (like the iclass chip) you can just heat it up with the soldering iron and it will just come off, don't try and scratch it off because you will break the antenna if you try to.

- take the antenna (whatever one you want)
- cut down the sharp corners and extra material.
- coat the damn thing already
- I use FDA16 and FDA2T both work fine for me but the 16 does seem to go more thin and thats nice.
- this 2.5ml is way more than needed to coat like 20 of these tiny things
- coat them all as a sheet of the whole thing and then cut them out of the sheet of medically coated devices
- again clean up the sharp edges
- implant that shit! or don't, please for the love of god don't do this and blame me if your body doesn't like it

experts on implants needed - tough one! Fri, 14 Apr 2017 15:34:29 -0700 cyb 2006@/discussions
what kind of implants you know that can mind read plus /and /or send you acoustics (coming from real people with kind of a microphone and machine that is transmitting their words, sentences, etc via frequencies) into my ears so I can perceive what they say no matter where I am (I guess dependable on chosen frequencies and their distance limitation they have to be somehow around in a distant of somewhat until 30 (maybe more) km)

and what kind of material do they use for that? it should be material including some kind of metal as I perceive their sounds and it works via frequencies, but apparently (not sure) its a material that has a lower radiopacity than xray could sense and depict - i got the information they are using some kind of biodegradables but would then they be able to perfectly capture and transmit frequencies (carrying information as my thoughts and their words)

as well has any one an idea how to visualize them and where to get them out (have tried xray, mri, echography, which does give positive results but not well enough for a chirurgien to get these out) 

so in fact i bought several different frequency detectors and they alarm as hell always on the same places in my face,neck and around ears. i have another device functioning with light and vibration and so if i put it on my ear (either right or left) for several minutes this implants which are apparently deep in the ear channel (even behind the tympanum starts to get crazy, i hear them louder and it gives sounds like hell - so yes i got them and apparently with a needle or somehow as i had no operation i would remember)

also i woke up once when i was abroad in a very insecure place and all my face was swollen around the eyes both sides especially, since then all this hell started - and i got several times the indication from a guy involved that `he could see trough my eyes from then on` - and apparently they can

I would very much appreciate your advises on what you now about such implants, i have much more information what they are doing with that and who
but all i want is to get rid of these

Thank you

How *Not* to do an implant Sat, 18 Feb 2017 20:44:47 -0800 ChrisBot 1950@/discussions
Every once in awhile a thread appears that relays some incredibly stupid actions within the realm of biohacking. This is one of those threads.
I am going to tell you all of the mistake that I made. This is for educational purposes and I am fully aware of the terrible things that I have done.

Pictures of the healing process

This past November I implanted the FlexNT from Cyberise. Some of you may remember my attempt at making an injector like device for such an implant. It ultimately failed but I intend to design a mk2 in the coming months. You can read more about that here. 

Mistake #1: Not having the proper tools.
I did not mention this previously but I actually attempted the procedure twice. One of the first mistakes that I had made was keeping my spare lido in a syringe that I had used for a previous implant. I knew that this was a bad idea but I did not know how to store it and did not want to spend another 50 dollars. I kept it in the syringe and would then take of the needle and keep it in a plastic bag. I would then attempt to sterilize the already previously used needles in a the typical chlorhexidine-isopropyl mixture. This was incredibly stupid I know. However I am young and very impatient. I figured that it would be okay. I was wrong. When I tried to perform the digital nerve block I realized that the needle had infact been blocked. So instead of actually injecting any lidocaine I just punched a bunch of holes in the side of my hand. Lesson: Always use clean new equipment. No matter how lazy/broke you are.

So with my first attempt foiled I had to wait until the next night. I bought some insulin needles from the pharmacy and thought I was ready to rock and roll.

Mistake #2: Premature preparation and getting frustrated 
Like I said, I went all in on my first attempt. Which also meant that I had opened the sterile sutures in preparation to stitch myself back up. That was a mistake. There was no need to have this opened before I had even started cutting, especially since I had someone there helping me. When things went south on the first attempt I got very frustrated. Once I cooled down I came back  and cleaned up a bit. That is probably when I lost the sutures. I am still not entirely sure what happened to the needle and thread but it was gone the next day. Imagine my surprise when I was ready to stitch myself up and finding out that I didn't have any sutures!! Lesson: Remain calm and cool and take care with your operation at every step of the procedure.

Mistake #3: Settling for anything less than ideal and making assumptions
The real issue with all of this was not that I was missing the sutures. It was that I had assumed that everything from the previous night was still in suitable condition for the operation. I was very wrong. I should have taken inventory and be more comprehensive in my pre-op procedure. If had done that then I would have realized that I did not in fact have a way to seal my wound. I was not aware of this until after I had cut an inserted my implant. However I have the common trait of absolute stubbornness that many people my age possess and I did not want to abort after my first failed attempt the previous night. That was a mistake. With no real way to seal the wound and I had to rely on shoddy butterfly bandages, which hardly did the job. I woke up in the middle of the night and could see the implant poking out a little bit, and I had to push it back in. In all honesty I should probably have taken it out right there and gone to the hospital to get stitched up. Lesson: Never settle during a procedure and always triple check yourself

Professional to do RFID chip implant Fri, 03 Mar 2017 03:49:01 -0800 alexwilson 1964@/discussions
I am working on a TV show, on which we would like to have our host implanted with an RFID chip. I was wondering if anyone has any recommendations of professionals who are experienced in this, who i could speak to about coming onto the show to do this? We are based in London, so someone London based would be ideal, but it's not essential. 

Many thanks!

Finally Got Myself an M31! Thu, 02 Mar 2017 15:27:46 -0800 Jardi 1961@/discussions Sort of an introduce myself thread..Thanks to @Ightden I've finally gotten myself an M31 Magnet!
Opened it up, took a few (crappy) pictures with the microscope... Hoping I can get some of the crud on the outer edges off.......
Assuming I am successful with the implant, I'll likely be creating different types of "trainers" to help myself adapt to the new sensations.... I'll be happy to post schematics once complete, and working well; I've got a few ideas in mind, if anybody has an idea they'd like to share, please do! I'd be happy to try it out if i'm successful!
As for the procedure, I live on long island, so seeing Brian Decker in the city isn't exactly a terrible idea....

I want to know if there's anymore forums out there where there are more radical people.  I know this sounds kinda weird, but I want to find a forum where poeple experiment on themselves possibly too much.  I want to see the bleeding weeping edge of biohacking.

Piercing/Body Mod Training/Learning Group Fri, 17 Feb 2017 11:44:43 -0800 Cassox 1943@/discussions Ok, so I've done a lot of procedures. The vast majority have been good, but when I was at the BodyHax conference I had to pull out a FlexNT I'd placed that was causing the guy problems. The issue was totally based on my placement. I also pulled a magnet for a guy that had been poorly placed by someone else. The procedure took too long and despite it having a good outcome, I feel like it was too much trauma to the area.

That said, I'm pretty good with some things. I mean, I can implant a magnet in less time then it takes for me to scrub in at this point. I have a lot of knowledge regarding everything from cleaning and sterilization of tools to blood borne pathogen training etc.. But I'm not good enough. I've been trying to approach all procedures from an entirely medical/surgical perspective.. but I got to speak with Russ Foxx and I've been seeing pictures of his work and it makes me want to cry. The guy does beautiful work. Seriously better then anything I could do. I've also been approached by a lot of people wanting to learn to do procedures.. so you see the weird position this puts me in right?

Ok, so charging someone 400 bucks for a magnet implant is bullshit. I'm not trying to shit talk Haworth here. I mean, it's the case of he can charge whatever he wants because he's among the best and I'm cool with this. But we need more body mod people in the community who are willing to work at cost and discuss technique without ego and hubris. I think we need to start a learning group to accomplish this. It wouldn't be super specific to body modification either.. people should be able to start IVs and safely administer injections. People should be able to do IO's. People should be familiar with various forms of pain management and fluid therapies etc. Some of this I'm definitely able to teach, some I'm not honestly good enough at. This is a project I'd like to start working on following the next Grindfest. I'm going to start accumulating resources and planning a curriculum. Because this is a very serious subject, a person would really need to commit. I think we should do it in like 3 week intervals. I probably can't commit to 6 months of biweekly skype conversations and homework, but I can do a 3 week run. And then.. another later.. and then another etc.

So let's talk about this. Who's down? I already know a lot of people who would do this but are already contributing in other ways. If you are a lurker.. or have said something like, "I don't know what I bring to the community," then this is for you. You wouldn't need any prior knowledge. We'll work together to figure things out. But the two characteristics I'd like to see are commitment and cautiousness.
