it boggles my mind when people complain about alternate realities dreamt up for the sake of storytelling, because they don’t understand that with the concept of infinite possibilities there could be a theoretical timeline in which Adolf Hitler broke into song in the middle of a speech and he and his men conquored the entirety of Europe in an incredibly choreographed 8-month Bollywood-style epic

I’m not gonna be on tumblr as much for a while beyond the occasional mobile post- I’m putting my computer in a storage unit in about an hour, and until I get a solid roof over me, there shall it remain. I can still be reached via text or email. If you have my cell number already, then that means I’m cool with getting texts from you, if else, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you all ‘round.
You know, 10 months ago, I would have said yes.
Right now I’ve got a girlfriend I adore, a job I enjoy, and I’m a hair’s breadth from filing for my business license. I’ve got too much in this state to leave it just like that.
Things will get better, I’m sure of it.
So the good news is that I got the rest of my ejuice mixing kit
The bad news is that as of tomorrow, I am without home.
We’ll see how things go.
Mostly non-nicotine and low-nicotine juice, as well as nicotine wean kits on custom order where the buyer states what concentration they’re at and what concentration they wanna be, how long it takes them to go through 10ml, and how long they want their weaning to take, and I make a set of decreasing concentration juice. Also I’ll be doing custom orders for viscosity and Propylene glycol for those with easily dried sinuses.
WE HAVE TO COOK
Getting the rest of the plastic (graduated cylinders and whatnot) on Friday, and the two gallons of base mix on Monday, and then I can churn out a bunch of batches. Right now I’m experimenting with what little base mix I have left- sour apple, blueberry, key lime? These flavors are turning out so well.
fist on a pile of bibles when I finish my monolith kit I’m gonna make a video of me doing the cooking dance in like abandoned buildings and fields to bill bellamy
i got seven felonies
so I just spent more money in one hour than I make in a week of work
propylene glycol, vegetable glycerin, flavors, mixing gear, safety equipment, measuring equipment, syringes, bottles…
This is really coming together- I’m getting pretty hype.
I remember first hearing the idea of smart gun technology back in the 90’s. I was impressed by the idea. If someone took your gun they couldn’t use it. The way this new gun works you wear a watch and as long as that watch is within 10 inches of the gun it arms it. Other ideas being researched include finger print reading technology.
My first big problem with this tech is the price. The gun is a .22 and it costs $1400. I’m not sure just how accurate the gun is but unless it’s a high grade target gun you can usually get a .22 handgun for $500 or less. Serious competition shooters use more expensive guns. Still for the price of this one .22 gun I can buy a .45 glock, a 12 gauge shotgun, and a hunting rifle brand new and still have money left over for ammo. It gets better though. That $1400 price tag is just for the gun itself. To get the watch you have to pay another $400 so really to be able to use this .22 you need to pay $1800 (plus $10 for your NICS check)
Another problem is the potential finger print scan pistol. Finger print scanners aren’t always the most reliable. If your fingers are dirty or sweaty you might not get a good reading. If you are using a gun for defense the last thing you need is for it to not accept your print signature and deactivate when you need it.
I don’t know much about the technology itself so I don’t know how easy it is to bypass the smart tech. Someone who puts their mind to it can figure it out though.
Wait, who the fuck charges $10 for a NICS check?
>shot in the right arm
>can’t switch to off hand
NICS checks are 25 dollars- private party transfers are the 10 dollar fee. Those prices are state-set. No higher, no lower.
If people are looking for a CC gun that can’t be used against them, this is trying to make a hole in the market for itself that does not exist. In California, a Glock 17 and two 10 round magazines of hollow points runs about 700 dollars after tax and the NICS check. That’s half the price of a gun with one advantage and too many drawbacks.
And the way I see it, if you have a CCW permit, and CC at all, you should have the foresight to know that you may have to use the handgun if necessary, and the knowledge of yourself to judge whether or not you’d take the shot if you had to. The only situation I can think of where someone would get their mitts on your CC gun is if they moved in on you and you failed to pull the trigger.
