Yeah as the other anon said, virgin was started in an era where rockets only launched every 2 months at best. The idea of making a space plane with a quick boost to suborbital space was pretty interesting. Branson should have seen the writing on the wall to quit... especially after your pic related and other companies such as spacex and blue origin (the other billionaires) started pursuing a smarter path. But he’s in too deep at this point i guess

I'd start by reading up on it. Paul Stamets has some good books, but he's kind of a douche. Unless you set up a clean room or a laminar flow hood you won't be able to work with agar cultures because they'll contaminate as soon as you look at them so I'd recommend either cardboard or liquid culture for your inoculum.

For cardboard culture, boil the cardboard for about 20 minutes, delaminate one side, and then inoculate it with cap/stem fragments or spores. I like cap fragments personally, the mycelium making up the cap is cloned, and stimulates any spores left on the gills to germinate so that you get multiple strains in the same culture, which I believe helps to keep the culture healthy and guarantees you at least one good fruiting strain. You can layer this with your substrate to inoculate it,.or continue adding cardboard and fruit directly from it. Pic related was inoculated a few days ago.

For liquid culture, prepare your broth by adding a tablespoon of sugar and 1/4 teaspoon of salt per gallon of tap water. You can use this broth to germinate spores which are best collected from a spore print or by "washing" the mushroom in the broth with a good shake, or to clone a mushroom by blending (for less than 5 seconds) up the stem to isolate the strain, or the whole cap if you want some random strains mixed in. It would be best to keep it on a stirring plate and held at the optimum temperature for the strain, but you can just shake it twice a day if you don't have a stirrer. You can use hydrogen peroxide to disinfect your liquid culture after you've germinated your spores for a day or two. It just takes about 15 mL per liter of liquid culture, otherwise you'll kill the mushroom mycelium as well. If you add some of your substrate to the liquid culture then the mycelium will learn to metabolize it and "leapoff" time will be greatly reduced.

When I was ten or eleven I went through a phase where I tried to stay awake as long as I could as much as I could, for no real reason other than being a dumb kid. Eventually I started having weird waking dreams, and then that became the reason I did it. I enjoyed the feeling of altered perception, and I guess thought the hallucinatiins were interesting or meaningful. I have wondered for a long time if (or how badly) I fucked up my brain development.

I don't talk to anyone from undergraduate and I got internships through the career fair, then did grad school and got my current position through the normal online job portal. I did have some positions I could had got through contacts but I was competitive enough that I could cold apply to other companies that pay more.

No, the best hospitals are ones not run by Democrats (or at least not run by socialists). The cost of insurance in a state is a significant factor quality of healthcare. America exports their healthcare research rather than invest domestically which is why Sweden and Denmark are frequently rated so high for health care in terms of government and quality.

Not true.

I was raised among wolves, until I was 20, and had defeated every pack in the land.

I went to conquer the humans. Upon arrival, I instantaneously picked up the language they were talking and was able to infiltrate their comunity, where I learned about the computer and instantly learned every single language that I was able to look at online.

I am now able to speak more than 100 languages and have solved every scientific problem of humans, but I refuse to publish anything, as I am currently in contact with Aliens that are planning to invade here and make me the leader of the new earth. It makes everything more complicated if humans had better tech.

Yeah, I'm that good.

We are obviously arguing if you have to buy a textbook physical vs online version. The fact free online versions exist don't weigh in on this discussion

Online textbooks are easier to carry around, especially if you have 4+ classes, they are cheaper, and you can have the book open in 2 windows to look at 2 pages (exercises and then the text)

The true power of the hypothetical quantum computer is in its ability to compute quantum chemistry simulations, so that we can synthesis a much wider range of drugs and medications much more quickly. Encryption and such is, in my view, not actually the most significant domain that quantum computers are going to impact.

What takes chemists and biologists and such years of research to unravel can be done in a few weeks if they were to have access to a universal quantum computer. This will usher in a great era of drug synthesis, medication, and genetic engineering/modification. Condensed matter physics and such will also be majorly impacted by this.

Are you guys as excited about this as I am?

>Doesn't this prove that, for someone with an IQ as high as yours
I don't know what my IQ is, and the way the site calculates IQ is by having you complete their quiz of syllogisms and then estimating IQ from that. The style of questions they use are so limited that you will quickly learn to identify the patterns, which will of course allow you to answer much more quickly. When you retake the test at the end of the trial, your estimated IQ will inevitably rise. There may be people out there who really do struggle with relational reasoning, so the program may actually work in their favor and provide real world results. The idea has some merit, but the difficulty levels off far too soon, which will limit the efficacy of the program for the majority of people. They could easily include more patterns and more information, which would ramp up the difficulty significantly.
