  • Yeah; great evening - thanks for organizing!
  • Sold and shipped; thanks for everyone's interest.
  • These are back on the market after the unfortunate discovery that circumstances beyond my control prevent me from mailing internationally. Any domestic USA buyers are welcome to one or both. PM me, FCFS.
  • I'm going to be working with some very magneto-sensitive electrical components. It's not a terrible tragedy; they've been starting to extrude for the last 8 or 9 months, so taking them the rest of the way out is actually going to pleasantly get rid …
  • Sure thing; PM me. One to The_Baron and one to Zlekrat; if either goes through I'll make another post here. Otherwise, assume that they're spoken for.
  • That's so exciting to see things starting to become standardized and new trails being blazed. 
  • Something to consider is the pressure that magnets would cause on your skin... Especially on facial areas, that skin is thin and delicate; constant pressure from a magnet could cause loss of bloodflow.
  • Oh wow @amal - didn't realize sales were that slow. Multi use ampoules can be fine, I think - just gotta use one needle per amoule insertion, and sterilize the entry (bulk chlorhex wipes are cheap and a nice big pack of needles/syringes from a dia…
  • @amal - I think I'm set for right now, but thank you! And powder is great for some people, but (and perhaps I'm alone in this opinion) I feel way safer having a sealed ampule that I know is pyrogenics-free, sterile, precisely metered, etc - I'm sure…
  • Awesome, @SystemShock -- thanks so much! @Amal, you may want to get in touch with the site owner regarding sourcing... I love your site, and it's awesome that you carry lido, but huge volume for way cheaper always rocks, and I'd love to support you …
  • Barring the fact I don't think any grinders could easily get their hands on any of the material needed for optogenetics (not to mention that while I think we're all adventurous, trying out untested adenoviruses on ourselves is reckless bordering on …
  • Subjective scales are great for personal research, but for sharing your information, objective data is the way to go. Of course, a single sample size is hardly rigorous, but it's a start. In some of my other experiences with nootropics and stimulant…
  • Yeah, 20% is way too much for me to want to touch, but if you found a source that's cheaper than DangerousThings (I love Amal's selection, but that lido is waaaaay expensive), could you source itm, please? PM is okay too.
  • I'm leaving town this upcoming Wednesday, so I might have some time to claim a few more chapters if they're not taken by the time I get my current sections drafted over the weekend.
  • Yessir. Work has gotten unexpectedly frantic but I'm going to get rolling tonight and have things drafted by Friday night.
  • Glad to hear it - feel free to post, pm, or comment if you have specific questions. Suture kits are sometimes hard to find; if you've got a nurse or vet friend (or wandering hands in a clinic room - not that I endorse that), that makes it easy.
  • It defeats the purpose of having nothing external, but you could put a magnet in the meat (watch out for muscle) of your proximal bone, then have a small induction coil, power source, and bluetooth connection in a large signet style ring (think form…
  • Powering it is the issue, as ever. Also, if it's subdermal, why not make it a very light electrical shock? Vibration is audible and and the motor is bulky; subdermal offers little to no advantages and a couple disadvantages over it being external.
  • Unless you've got practice using something like dermabond, it's very easy to accidentally get CA inside the wound, which will stop the edges from joining ('approximating') and healing well. A suture will ensure approximation, but can be more difficu…
  • I'm happy to do magnets and aseptic technique.
  • Looks great! For the sake of readability, maybe decide to use either line breaks or tabs as paragraph breaks (I'd recommend line breaks, personally) and make it consistent through the document. Otherwise, I like it!
  • Looks good to me.
  • Ok - I understand that; that seems like a good flow.
  • I was saying that using markup and github allows for version control, consistent formatting across sections, ease of suggestions to be accepted from other contributors, and easy viewing of everyone's progress - not for the outline, but for the actua…
  • I think that's an excellent solution - makes things simple, formatting consistent, and updating simple and trackable. The only thing is that it requires all collaborators to use and at least basically understand github, which people may not be willi…
  • Just made the formatting tweaks per comments. At some point, it would be good to abandon the deletions to the Revision Control system and prune it down to only correct content we plan to write on (i.e. give comments their own page or something and e…
  • Check again haha. Just made a number of edits and converted it into an actual outline format, plus some structural suggestions. If I'm being overzealous or doing too much, please tell me heh.
  • I would think that, given the community here, it would be unlikely that someone would take the time to submit something and not stick to conventions, as long as they're clarified. Draft could work well too; something more open and accessible than em…
  • Do you want to put it in a google doc or something so we can contribute/tweak? I think @glims is a great person to take the lead but I'd love to have it be a group effort - multiple authors; people writing what they know.
  • Some things I can think of off the top of my (very medicated - screw respiratory infections) head, based on my research on magnet implantation (mainly from the medical side): * preparing and maintaining a sterile field and asepsis (sterile glove don…
