Because Dinner for Two is Expensive.

Chloroform has been putting the 'sensual' into non-consensual for over a century but it also has uses as an anesthetic and a common laboratory solvent. Here's how to make it.

I've actually(successfully) used the line "excuse me but does this rag smell like chloroform to you?"  to pick up girls...of course I was joking and don't really recommend rape "chemical assisted speed seduction" unless you want some serious jail time.  It can be fun with a consenting partner though, or if you ever need to perform field surgery on a wound.

some notes on storage:
Store in a glass container, not plastic, and ideally the glass should be amber or brown in colour to filter UV rays.  Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated area.  Under influence of ultra violet light, Chloroform will react with oxygen, forming highly toxic phosgene gas.  It will do this eventually anyway, so you also want to try to keep oxygen out of your storage container if you plan to store it for a while.  Keeping it in a well cleaned beer bottle, in the fridge, with a balloon stretched over the top, could work in a pinch if you fill it up with 12oz of chloroform.  Also if you see the balloon inflating, or the level of liquid decreasing, you know its giving off phosgene gas and should be discarded.

Making/keeping this stuff could be illegal so as always check local laws.

I had sex with this girl I met at a club last night. It was inevitable it was going to happen, you could tell, just by the chemistry...Rohypnol and Chloroform.

Recent studies have found that Chloroform has been in existence since at least 9months BC .

My girlfriend came around unexpectedly the other day. That's the last time I buy Tesco Value Chloroform!

Chloroform! For when she doesn't know she wants to!

Ok, thats about all I've got.  Enjoy, and stay tuned for tomorrows update when I'll try to post some more cool blogger tips and tricks.

˙buıʇunoɔ puɐ pǝɹpunɥ oʍʇ

In celebration of reaching two hundred followers I've decided to help them out by posting some useful tips and add-ons to help make following a bunch of blogs easier. I follow a lot of blogs myself and these are some of the things I've tried and what I think of them. Originally I was just going to post an easy recipe for making chloroform, with a nice picture chart, but then I hit 200 followers so maybe I'll do that tomorrow or something.

These will be mostly firefox related since that's what I use for blogger related things. If you use chrome, consider installing FF for the add-ons. There's nothing wrong with using a separate browser just for blogs. Personally I like FF for everything.

I've stopped using Morning Coffee, in favour of just adding bookmark folders broken down into groups of 75 blogs each. I rightclick on a folder and go to 'open all in tabs' to work through that group before moving on. This tip also works in chrome. Now on to the add-ons.

First up we have VertTabbar. Instead of one long row of tabs this allows you to put them in a column, arranged vertically, which sort of reminds me of the windows explorer interface and I like that. Supports resizing, and left or right side of the screen. It's great for widescreens and has more compatibility than similar add-ons like Vertigo.

Next up, I find it's nice to keep organized by colouring and/or numbering tabs. ColorfulTabs takes care of colouring them different pastel colours, and NumExt is what I use to number them. Numext also gives you some neat new hotkeys for quickly switching tabs. I like being able to see how many I have left to go through at a glance.

If you regularly open 100+ tabs at once like I do you may benefit from Load Tabs Progressively which makes your tabs load in smaller batches, instead of trying to load them all at the same time. No screenshot for this one; sorry, but I'm not making an animated gif to show what this does.

It's beyond the scope of this post to review all the add-ons I use but if you like this post and want some more useful ones let me know and I'll write another post on it sometime. I hope somebody finds this helpful.

It is 1933. You are in Berlin, Germany. Somehow, you find yourself in a position where you can effortlessly steal Adolf Hitler's wallet. This theft will not effect Hitler's rise to power, the nature of World War II, or the Holocaust. There is no important identification in the wallet, but the act will cost Hitler forty Reichsmarks and completely ruin his evening. You do not need the money. The odds that you will be caught committing this crime are less than 2 percent. Are you ethically obligated to steal Hitler's wallet?

DIY Fireworks

Just for fun...this isn't a real explosive like some of my previous posts, but it looks like it might put on a neat little show for an inexpensive price. Making your own fireworks is fun. I haven't had a chance to test this recipe, but it would be interesting if it works. I'll try it out when I get around to it. If any of you guys test this, let me know your results. Also, be careful not to let the can tip over. I don't want my readers getting hurt and trying to sue me or something.

I Saw the Sign.

Ok here's something fun. I recently saw one of these near where I live. Got any funny ideas for what it should say?

Crowd control.

I still don't really have much to say. I'm never sure what to post about so for now I'll give you another improvised zombie weapon. These fun toys are called nut-busters :) and you can make them with shotgun shells and a cardboard tube with some cardboard fins attached. On the primer end of the shell is glued a small cork with a hole drilled through it. A roofing nail should fit the hole snugly enough to stay in place but loose enough to be driven into the primer upon impact.

Since the shell is not focused by a gun barrel, it won't cause the same amount of damage. However if it goes off between a guy's legs he'll be singing soprano. These are most effective when thrown singularly, or by the handful into the air over a crowd. The weight of the shell and aerodynamics of the fins cause them to head straight downwards. These things usually come as quite a surprise and the threat of more is enough to disperse most crowds.

Not only will these go off when they hit the ground, but they can also be set off on a person's head or shoulder. At night it would be pretty much impossible to figure out where they're coming from.

Cliff notes: see diagram, figure it out.

New type of hybrid vehicle from Chrysler.

Well, this looks kind of cool if you're into that sort of thing.  Personally I havent seem a commonly available hybrid that I like enough to drive and this is going to be in a minivan...but I'm interested in new innovations and it might be neat if it eventually makes it into a decent model car.  Read more at:

I guess that's all for today, I don't like mondays so I don't feel like writing very much.

Calcium is good for you.

As always, be careful and don't do anything wrong with this info.  Get some calcium carbide. This is the stuff that is used in carbide lamps and can be found at most hardware stores. Take a few pieces of this stuff (looks like gravel) and put it in a glass jar with some water. Screw a lid on tightly. The carbide will react with water to produce acetylene carbonate which is similar to the gas used in cutting torches. Eventually the glass with explode from internal pressure. If you leave a burning rag nearby, you will get a nice fireball! 

This isn't too useful as an explosive but if you wanted to create a distraction with a time delay or just startle the hell out of somebody it might be good to know.  Now if you placed the glass container in the back of somebody's car and they happened to be a smoker you might be able to cause some burns, but it really isn't likely, and when you failed, you'd lose the element of surpise.  Sends a pretty clear message though if you're into that kind of thing. 

Really though, this is more suited for strategical use then actually hurting anybody IMO.

...i got better.

Thanks to all the people who wished me a speedy recovery.  I found some good ways to treat an ulcer and I'm doing much better now.  I thought I'd need to go to a hospital, but apparently I can treat it myself.  Zantac(or generic) reduces stomach acid which hurts an ulcer, yogurt has cultures which will line the stomach and prevent further damage, and apparently studies show that the antioxidants, tannins, and free radicals in tea, can help to heal it pretty quickly.  So I'm feeling much better already and hope to have something good to post tomorrow. 

I slept almost all day for some reason,  just couldn't seem to get up.  Probably because the stomach pain had been disrupting my regular sleep schedule and polyphasic sleep isn't very flexible.  Things should go back to normal tomorrow.  At least it's the weekend and I didn't have anything important to do.  Thanks again guys.

Sorry about not updating yesterday.  I haven't been feeling too well lately.  My stomach has been hurting like crazy.  It goes away for a while after I eat so I thought it might be a duodenal ulcer, but I don't have heartburn and I can drink coffee or lemonade without a problem so maybe it's something else.  I'll get back to regular updates of useful information as soon as I feel better.

Follow the Leader.

I've picked up quite a few followers now and I want to thank everybody for taking an interest and showing their support.  I would love to check out all of your blogs as well.  I already follow many of you guys but having so many followers can be a bit of a challenge to organize so i'm compiling a list of my followers' blogs so I can make sure to check all you guys daily.

**If you want me to follow you, leave a comment to this post.**  It doesn't matter what you say, just say hi or something.  Post a link to your blog if it isn't in your profile.  I'm turning on comment moderation temporarily, so that i get a list of all the people who want me to check them out or who want me to keep following them.

Most of my followers haven't been commenting, and that's fine, but just this once please say something, so I can figure out who to check out.  Thank you all so much.  I don't usually like comment moderation, so I'll probably turn it back off after a couple of days.

**Cliff notets: If you don't comment here, I won't know to check out your blog.**

Here's a fun little chemistry experiment.  Do be careful with this stuff.  In this post I'll be teaching you how to make a chemical called ANTI.  It has a few useful applications when you think along the lines of improvised weaponry and zombie attacks, or whatever.  It's pretty easy to make but first let me give you a bit of background info about it.

I recommend making a very small amount at first to see what it can do.  It's a high explosive, a fulminate, that is sensitive enough to be set off at the touch of a feather.  Imagine a high explosive that is easy to make, which is harmless while moist, but devastating when it dries.  Say you put a moist piece of this stuff into a pipe bomb 3/4 full of powder, or stuck it to a stick of dynamite, and left it under a car seat.  Your target (can zombies even drive?) would get about an hour down the road while the chemical dries and then the slightest vibration of the car would set off the anti and thus the dynamite or explosive.  I'm sure you can think up other uses but I'll get to the good part now.

You'll need iodine crystals and strong ammonia.  You might be able to find these at certain pharmacies near hospitals, or probably on the web.  I would advise against buying both from the same place.  To make ANTI, just drop iodine crystals into ten times their amount of strong ammonia.  A few grains will be enough to prove the process.  After letting it soak for about 10 minutes, swirl, and pour the iodine crystals into a coffee filter.  Scrape up the crystals and/or paste with a knife or spatula.

Be careful as these start to dry.  A small pile of treated crystals will set each other off as they dry and settle.  The paste has more consistent drying times and will dry more uniformly and shouldn't set itself off, but be careful anyway.

Storage and transport:
A good way to store this or carry it around is to cut a small square out of the corner of a plastic baggy.  Put the ANTI in the bottom corner and roll it up, then wrap this in a wet cloth, and roll that up.  Then put this into a whole baggy and roll that up too.  The ANTI could stay this way for months and yet be ready to use at any time.

Comments are appreciated as always.  Let me know what you think of this!

An incendiary topic.

My original plan for this blog was to share information that I found interesting or useful.  Allow me to preface this article by saying what you do with this information is solely YOUR responsibility.  I implore you to use this type of thing only as a last resort; there are usually better ways to deal with problems.

That being said...we all know the zombie apocalypse is coming and it is necessary to be prepared for the hordes of undead that will inevitably rise and seek to feed on your delicious brain meats.  Picture it: you're faced with an approaching army of the undead, nowhere to run, out of ammo, you turn to improvised weapons, the molotov cocktail is a classic.  As you go to light one up, you find your lighter has run out of fluid, or perhaps it's too windy that day and your matches get blown out.  Its happened to all of us at one point...but no more!  Presenting the Flameless Molotov. 

I give you a simple recipe for producing a molotov cocktail, that is water resistant, extra sticky, and doesn't require you to light it before you throw one.  Take a wine bottle with a concave bottom.  Fill it with 30% sulfuric acid, 20% motor oil, and 50% gasoline.  Seal the top, and then clean/dry the outside of the bottle, especially the bottom part.  Fill the bottom with Potassium Chlorate.  Now cut out a piece or cardboard in a circular shape so it will fit over the bottom and hold the potassium chlorate in place.  Put the cardboard on and seal it with duct tape.  Put a plastic bag on the bottom and hold it on with a rubber band to keep moisture out.  When you throw one of these the sulfuric acid will ignite the potassium chloride, which will, in turn, set off the gasoline.  Hopefully your zombies can be killed with fire.

Please let me know what you think of this post.  If people want to see more information like this I will gladly oblige.  If you prefer information on other topics, or don't think I should be posting things like this let me know that as well, and I will try to accommodate you.  Thanks guys.

Sly as a fox.

I don't really have much to say right now, so I thought I'd share a news article I just came across. This made me laugh.  It's about a hunter who got shot by the fox he was trying to kill.  How bad at hunting do you have to be to let your prey shoot you with your own rifle?  Seriously, natural selection at it's finest.

Now if only this link was from Fox news...

Problem, Ironic Processing?

Take your left hand off your face & uncross your feet/legs. You are now aware that your tongue is constantly moving in your mouth, & that your jaw has weight & you're constantly holding it up. You're breathing manually, blinking manually, & every time you swallow you hear a little clicking sound in your ears. Your body is itching in at least one place. You have a slight headache. Also, don't think about the game.  How many of you tried to deselect that picture?  Have a nice day.

Cameras, Cameras Everywhere!

I did this a few times and found a few traffic cameras, one at an airport, and some other random stuff.  It's something to try out the next time you're bored.  No downloading of anything required, so it isn't a virus or anything, just something to do to kill some time.  If you find any really interesting ones let me know.

Nice work, guys!

The Bradenton Police Department in Florida recently found a box in their evidence locker labelled SKULL.  It contained a human skull and that's about all.  They don't know who it belonged to or anything.  Thats some great police work.  You can tell the detective who worked the case must have really cared about it because he underlined the word SKULL twice on the box!   Every time i read one of these weird stories, it's always from Florida, my home state.  I wonder why that is.  Anyway, the link I'm attaching should take you to the full story about it after a brief ad.  I thought this was amusing, so I thought I'd share.

New Zodiac Signs

Your Zodiac sign may have changed.  It seems that when astrology got started 3000 years ago the earth's position in relation to the sun was different.  Since we're in a different position now, the dates for the old signs may have changed and there's a 13th sign (Ophiuchus) now.  I've listed the new dates for the signs below...I always thought I was an Aquarius but this says I'm a Capricorn now.  I have my doubts and think anybody really interested should probably get their full astrological chart done.  Either way, I thought this was interesting, and i'll post a link to a story about it below the dates.  What do you think of this?

Capricorn: Jan. 20 - Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16 - March 11
Pisces: March 11- April 18
Aries: April 18 - May 13
Taurus: May 13 - June 21
Gemini: June 21 - July 20
Cancer: July 20 - Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10 - Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16 - Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30 - Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23 - Nov. 29
Ophiuchus: Nov. 29 - Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17 - Jan. 20

Polyphasic Sleep

I've been trying to get adjusted to a polyphasic sleep schedule recently.  For those who don't know what polyphasic sleep is, a bit of background info is in order.  Every night your body goes through various stages of sleep, one of which is known as REM(rapid eye movement), and this is where the most beneficial sleep comes from.  Ironically the REM phase is when the brain look least asleep.  Well, it seems that REM sleep is all you really need to survive and feel rested but only 1-2hrs of your nightly sleep are spent in REM.  Wouldn't it be nice to cut out the extra phases of sleep and get 4-5 more hours of productive time awake.

Introducing polyphasic sleep:
One of the ways to train yourself to go into REM sleep immediately when you go to sleep is to trick your body into thinking it is going to get a tiny amount of sleep.  You can do this by using a few 20-30 minute naps throughout the day.  There are numerous different schedules you can adopt to use this method and the one i've been trying to stick to is: 3-hours of core sleep at night (1-4 a.m.), then three 20-minute naps throughout the day (at 9am, 2pm, and 9pm ideally).  naps can be shifted by as much as an hour in either direction. So I can nap at 8, 1, and 9; or 9:30, 3, and 8:30...etc.

Getting adjusted:
Switching my sleep schedule like this has left me pretty tired lately, and I've had some trouble waking up from my naps.  I hear it takes about 10 days before you get used to polyphasic sleep, but I've had to start over a couple of times when a 30min nap turned into a 5 hour sleep.  I slept through 6 alarm clocks!  Maybe I just need to switch the mp3s my alarm clocks play to some louder songs.  I'm sure if I keep trying, I'll get used to it.

Anyway I just wanted to share what I thought was some useful info.  Can't really think of too much to write about on here yet, so unless I have some good subject matter, maybe I'll just keep updating this blog with cool or useful information like this post.  Let me know what you think.

testing my new blog

Hopefully i'll come up with some decent stuff to post soon.  Be sure to check back and i'll try to update as much as possible.
