  • Just to clarify wet cupping (known as "hijamah" in Arabic) is not actually in the Q'uran. It's in the hadith (words, actions and silent approval of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.) https://islamqa.info/en/answers/3268/al-hijaamah-cupping-what-islam-says-about-it-its-benefits-and-the-times-when-it-should-be-done…
  • It would be cool if somebody could combine this CovertBand research with an augmented reality headset like Microsoft HoloLens to produce a crude form of X-Ray vision. Maybe if you painted your walls white and setup LIFX smart light bulbs to change colors (sort of like a green screen), you could switch between different…
  • I wonder if that would be enough power to pick up on the "Privacy Threats Through Ultrasonic Side Channels on Mobile Devices." In case you haven't 'heard' (pun intended), that's the shady new under-the-radar advertising technique that primarily targets smartphones through legacy media, i.e. FM radio and television…
  • Sorry, guys.. I'm probably partially at fault on this. In another thread @Rocca8620 was asking about the security of an implantable Mifare chip.. One of my replies got onto the subject of RF shielding; coincidentally, this is exactly what "I got implanted with nanites against my will and now I'm being stalked by a mob of…
  • I'll be there.. Let me check with my travel agent on what date range I'm going to be in Vegas for.. If I don't have any other commitments, I'll be up for volunteering. I'm looking forward to this village more than any other this year!
  • I was just suggesting that you look into the laws that apply to blood banks or policy documents developed by the banks themselves to adhere to..
  • I just moved to the San Francisco Bay Area a few months ago.. 
  • I can code whatever for Linux server-side (including device drivers, i.e. LKM's/LSM's, etc. if need be.) Don't hesitate to inbox me if you need help. My day job consists of web app pen testing, net vuln assess, code review, host hardening, etc. I'll be joining Slack soon..do you guys have it bridged with an IRC channel out…
  • Superman, don't think so.. couldn't you just use the revision history to return to the intended time-stamp? If you know of a way to completely clear out the revisions please direct message me! Perhaps this is a bit n00bish, but I don't use Google d0x much.. =]
  • Out of curiosity, which forum software will the new site be using? Looks like the current is PHP Vanilla: http://forum.biohack.me/README
  • popi, what type of panel(s) would such a DIY blood screen require? There must be some legislation concerning this that regulates blood bank activity.
  • I think this is the million dollar question since we don't have any empirical evidence showing what age a healthy brain that's been exposed to current life-extension technologies is able to reach on average. The answer to your query will increase in complexity if/when reanimation from cryogenic suspension is successfully…
  • If anyone's looking to split a room I might be able to check this conference out on my way out west this year (ultimately ending up in Vancouver for CanSecWest.) Feel free to inbox me.. 
  • The closest I've come to doing anything like the posters above is going all green-tinge bananas and vanilla flavored "Muscle Milk" powder mixed with organic milk for several days. That's something out of the ordinary for me and the only reason I ever do it is to get quick calories that are easy to stomach during a…
  • @TorrentX You might want to ask Tito Jankowski of Impossible Labs cause the original balsa wood OpenPCR came packaged with one.. Another person you may want to check with would be the sysadmin of the-odin.com. @misslitty I saw where some biotech companies have already begun marketing LAMP and RT-LAMP solutions to hospitals…
  • Noobish question, but maybe one of you anatomical neurosurgeon types can satisfy my curiosity: if this thing is subdermal, then why isn't it designed to stimulate that vagus nerve since it's already going to be right there?
  • @Cassox Why wouldn't cold-water extraction be an option with the tablet or gel cap formulations? In the United States, the tablets are sometimes called "<Generic> PM", but sometimes mixed with acetaminophen. There's a brand name called Unisom which is either 25mg or 50mg gel caps. Unisom also has a product called…
  • According to the terminology used in academia, I don't think this subject matter would actually qualify as "computer science" (CISC). Computer and Information Sciences subjects never go any lower-level than the binary numbering system and as far as programming languages are concerned, it doesn't go any lower than ASM…
  • The underlying problem here is that academia is a bureaucracy of tenured professors and administrators. At some point, someone is going to become concerned about losing their job or otherwise not getting ahead materialistically in life; these are also usually the same personality types that worry too much about what other…
  • A FOAF just came across two pieces of blotter paper and abruptly flushed them down the toilet. However, I was wondering if they would have kept them--how small would each square need to be divided up in order for it to be considered a "microdose" ?
  • I'm surprised nobody brought up microfluidic computing. In theory, you could attach a substrate to your arm that contained lots of very tiny droplets of water containing food coloring or any other desired liquid and it could more or less function as a display. If you've ever seen a close-up video of microfluid chip, then…
  • The American Cryonics Society has some really good archive footage of talk shows and news reels covering cryonic suspension in the 80's and 90's .. https://www.youtube.com/user/AmericanCryonicsSoc/videos
  • Interesting.. I've got a Thync here, but haven't experimented with it a whole lot yet. Would that also be considered a TDCS device?
  • SWIM tried micro-dosing and found that it actually increased anxiety so YMMV..
  • FYI: Lysergic acid (and I've heard some other psychedelics) can also induce labor in pregnant women. In fact, Hoffman was looking for a drug to do exactly that when he discovered LSD-25 at Novartis. There are so many urban legends around psychedelics that sometimes it's difficult to separate the wheat from the chaff. I…
  • @ightden Wouldn't even need to make one--they've been commercialised already: https://www.amazon.com/Brain-Coat-Shielding-your-Mind/dp/B00K0PX1KG
  • I was looking into the safety of RFID injection in the mid-2000's on the "Tagged Forums" (linked to archived mirror below.) http://web.archive.org/web/20060202092310/http://tagged.kaos.gen.nz/ I came across a veterinary journal regarding the development of malicious tumors in dogs that had been tagged and that pretty much…
  • Based on my experience, I doubt you could use it as a permanent substitute, but if you just want something temporarily to help your caffeine tolerance back-off then you could try Huperzine A. Just make sure you start off low and slow cause it's easy to overdo. 
  • If it's something proprietary (ie. unknown), then this requires a SIGINT (Signals Intelligence) approach. If you only need to fingerprint the signal transmission, then a spectrum analyzer will suffice, otherwise you'll need an RF training system.. Alternatively, you could take advantage of their SDR equivalents (I would…
  • I would be more concerned about someone cutting off my hand to get into my house than getting the tag cloned.. If you don't mind being extreme, then you can always deny service to the tag with a Faraday cage at times that you don't intend on scanning it.. Wrapping yourself with tinfoil would work, although you need to be…
