  • The very insect-like noise of the joints moving really adds something.
  • Testosterone replacement therapy is usually not prescribed orally as traditionally this has caused problems for the liver. Apparently only very recently have oral formulations been developed to counter this (2020: https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/pdf/10.1177/1756287220937232 , 2016:…
  • According to the admin dashboard we have a handful of daily lurkers. Probably there are more who have email notifications set up for specific threads.
  • I don't think you can successfully DIY this, but apparently some surgeons will do it for money. https://nypost.com/2015/09/06/this-strange-condition-makes-people-want-to-hack-off-a-healthy-limb/
  • Each study in this meta analysis save for one (Kranse et al., 2005) that had a placebo group has the same age cohort between placebo and non-placebo groups. I'm looking at Table 1 in the linked PDF. Even if you want to disregard that one study, there are 31 others that find the same thing- no link between soy protein and…
  • Plant estrogen affecting human testosterone levels is a myth. https://www.fertstert.org/article/S0015-0282%2809%2900966-2/pdf
  • Yes
  • RIP, condolences for the pain and loss of supplies. But, lessons learned, right? I cut a Firefly v2 out of my own hand last year and also greatly underestimated the amount of force required and the difficulty of working on one hand when you only have the other to work with.
  • They aren’t necessary. It doesn’t hurt much at all, provided the person doing the insertion knows what they are doing and does it quickly.
  • Depends what aspect of biohacking you are interested in. For implant hardware, engineering; for implant software, programming; for performing implantation, mentoring under a body modification artist fits more than a degree; for nootropics, pharmacy; etc, etc.
  • May 5 in the american format would be 5-1-2021, so I think this is more the computing format of YYYY-MM-DD, so January 5
  • I've been approving accounts on the regular, so it seems others are getting through. And, Vanilla emailed me about THIS VERY POST! So, I don't think there is a problem with vanilla. A few weeks ago someone changed a setting behind the scenes that broke outgoing emails, but that was fixed as soon as the rest of us noticed…
  • Here is the url to join our slack: https://bhme-slack.herokuapp.com/
  • You ask and an admin can do it for you.
  • If we haven't managed to perfect genetic therapies to do a relatively harmless things like knock out myostatin in adult humans, even though plenty of millionaires would gladly throw their millions at such a thing at the slightest hope that they can stop going to the gym, I have serious doubts that you are sitting on a…
  • Agreed, everything here regarding magnet status is so out of date that it’s more likely to be misleading than useful! Please ask questions in new threads, or search to see if your questions have already been asked and answered by others. The benefits of magnets have been discussed at length in other threads.
  • seriously though, what are you asking? it’s unclear what the “biohacking for females” has to do with the rest of what you’ve said.
  • every time someone refers to women as “females” my brain can’t pay attention to the rest of what they are saying because it gets stuck on this image
  • If you go to an event like grindfest or defcon magnets will be available from people who have been doing this in this community for a long time. Also, lots of reputable body modification artists (Brian Decker, Steve Haworth, Russ Fox, etc) sell/implant magnets and travel all over to piercing conventions and such.
  • Sorry to be late to this, but don't try and find a random magnet and figure out how to coat it and implant it yourself. Coatings are hard! Most fail! Don't mess around with sticking toxic objects in your body if you don't know what you are doing, just to save a buck!
  • people in this community have already designed an implanted raspberry pi project called the pegleg- https://hackaday.com/2019/08/29/pegleg-raspberry-pi-implanted-below-the-skin-not-coming-to-a-store-near-you/ the pegleg runs piratebox software but once you’ve successfully implanted a pi you can effectively run anything you…
  • Also, people have put magnets into a standard bridge piercing to mount glasses, but bridge piercings require very precise anatomy lest they’ll reject even without irritating them constantly with a large bouncy external object stuck to them. https://www.livescience.com/10459-glasses-require-piercing-bridge-nose.html
  • Maybe the "recent discussions" page is more what you want, rather than the activity tab? If no one finds the Activity tab useful, I can attempt to hid it, but all sorts of people find all sorts of things useful, so ¯_(ツ)_/¯ It looks like there is some Vanilla community interest in allowing user light/dark themes, but that…
  • > @ThomasEgi said: > Another idea (no clue if that already exists or not) would be to upgrade the lock-screen of smartphones. People are more likely to forget their wallet than their smartphone if you'd ask me. So putting an "emergency info" on the unlock screen would make sense. This way the information would be…
  • I think we need to take this on a case by case basis. While it’s good for the community to warn each other of abusers who might continue to abuse others, we also want to avoid building lists of people for any infraction, that might expose those people to abuse themselves. So, in the case where someone might be a threat to…
  • I don’t know where Decker sources them, but I think this is from before Dangerous Things had magnets like this.
  • I got it implanted by Brian Decker in Brooklyn, NY. He used a scalpel and sealed it up with a single stitch. I asked him the strength and he said it’s N52. It’s implanted in the outer side of my non-dominant ring finger, but I have small fingers so extends under the pad just enough to be annoying :) I just have the one…
  • I have a similar long magnet. I don't know if it's equivalent to the xG3 - it's a 3x1mm parylene coated grain of rice shaped magnet, implanted by Brian Decker. Mine works well for lifting (can pick up silverware), and is okay for sensing. I think the sensitivity has gone down very slightly over the 4 years I've had it. I…
  • I think that placement might be a problem if you ever plan to pick up heavy things like barbells or furniture! Also, my guess is it will be a lot less good at sensing fields in that location. People like to go for the fingertips because there are more nerve endings for better sensing of fields, and off to the side so the…
