Computer Software / Re: Personal Database - Symphytum

Found this gem on Git.  Symphytum

Anyone know of any other personal databases?  I am using to organize all my links, and online finds etc.  Now I have a massive spreadsheet with 1000's of links.  80% likely came from here. 

;)

This is more of a method, but I found it recently and was intrigued

Medicine, Pharmaceuticals, & Drugs / Re: Does Nootropics work?
Last post by Anon -
Hey!

I've got a fair bit of experience with nootropics!

They work, to an extent. Don't expect any limitless like experiences with them.

After 6/7 years trying all different nootropics I can confidently say this:

Get your nutrition on point, get a good exercise regime going, get good SLEEP and start a meditative practice and you probably won't even think about nootropics again. The best part though is that if you're actually good with those 4 things, nootropics will actually have an effect on you.

I can't recommend any to try as it is so individual as to how your body responds to them and is highly dependent on you and your lifestyle. A lot of people seem to respond well to Racetams though and a lot of people recommend stacks with them.

Now if you want to move into the smart drugs realm, different story. I would still worry about nutrition, exercise, sleep and meditation first and foremost but I have used Modafinil on and off for the last 10 years, as well and Ritalin, Adderall and many others. These do have noticeable effects, but they're all disrupting the chemical balance in your body and therefore all have some form of downside, if you're willing to handle the downside for the short-term benefits, then they can be really handy. These days I occasionally still us modafinil if I've got a few big days in a row and I know I've got study that needs to be completed.

Overall would not recommend, but I will gladly acknowledge that they have their place and will use them when I feel like I need to.

If you have anymore questions, just shout out. If you need help with nutrition, exercise, sleep, meditation or just health in general, also shout out, its my profession and something I love doing, so am always willing to help out.

Whitmer Kidnapping Plot REVEALED AS A COMPLETE FBI SETUP

"An examination of the case by BuzzFeed News also reveals that some of those informants, acting under the direction of the FBI, played a far larger role than has previously been reported. Working in secret, they did more than just passively observe and report on the actions of the suspects. Instead, they had a hand in nearly every aspect of the alleged plot, starting with its inception."

The government has documented at least 12 confidential informants who assisted the sprawling investigation. The trove of evidence they helped gather provides an unprecedented view into American extremism, laying out in often stunning detail the ways that anti-government groups network with each other and, in some cases, discuss violent actions.

An examination of the case by BuzzFeed News also reveals that some of those informants, acting under the direction of the FBI, played a far larger role than has previously been reported. Working in secret, they did more than just passively observe and report on the actions of the suspects. Instead, they had a hand in nearly every aspect of the alleged plot, starting with its inception. The extent of their involvement raises questions as to whether there would have even been a conspiracy without them.

A longtime government informant from Wisconsin, for example, helped organize a series of meetings around the country where many of the alleged plotters first met one another and the earliest notions of a plan took root, some of those people say. The Wisconsin informant even paid for some hotel rooms and food as an incentive to get people to come.
