Mixture may become a tad volatile.

If you don't know your chemistry, DON'T TRY THIS!

If you really want to experiment, start with nitropropane.


Always use your real name and address when purchasing Hydrazine, nitromethane and or nitropropane. it makes it easyer for the DEA to find your meth lab.

Not sure how you'd use those for that, especially considering cost, but who can compete with the mexican's P2P product now?

No one cares who you are when you buy the nitro compounds, as they're stable as fuck.
Things may have changed for hydrazine now.

Some amines work to perk things up though.
Again, DON'T DO THIS!

Here's another tip-
Do not store with oxidants.

Do not compete with drug cartels.


A current theory is that meth purity and addictiveness are tied together.
If this is true, everyone needs to step up their security considerably.

Are you William Shatner in your real life Gyre? Your posts always remind me of Shatner poetry/songs.

You're one to talk, Bob.

This is a pointless tips thread.

My humor has always been too dry for most people.
I mostly follow the example of an uncle, who simply quit worrying when people didn't get his jokes.
Totally deadpan.

I'm not trying for poetry here, but I always felt my poetry sounded like Lennon's, though I aspire to Brautigan and Dylan.

I could do worse than Shatner.
I'm sure I have.

It's a nice thought, but I can't picture it.
This is a really small forum, as such things go.
I'm on a large forum that can have posts come in too fast to read, just on one thread.
It can be overwhelming at times.

I'm on a forum with Jay Leno and some other well known people.
Everyone talks around him being there, so I made a joke about him.
He seemed to find it funny, though it's always intimidating as hell to tell jokes to comics.
Nobody on the forum would ever out him to the public though.

I wouldn't be too surprized to find Shatner on some special interest forum or other, though writers tend to put their energy on the page.
I can see him at burning man though.
Do you think he would be disguised? Or not?

I actually haven't seen Shatner since Star Trek.
1967, probably.

As little as a 1/4" (6.35mm) edge extending up from a sidewalk block can be considered a tripping hazard and should be ground down smooth to avoid such a condition.

Tips for being intoxicated:

1. fire is hot
2. gravity is always down
3. scissors are sharp, don't run with them
4. water is wet.

you mean Marta?


IIRC yes
When they filmed the episode, post production crews who didn;t know she was supposed to be green kept changing her skin color back to normal on the film. Took a few tries before everybody was on the same page and she stayed green
Not really an absinthe reference, but she did look like she was dipped in cream de minthe.
