My postman is obviously a stoner, just the way he carries the back all slung back on his shoulder gives it away but he also looks like Wayne (or Garth I can't remember which one is which). I keep thinking I should offer him a bowl of the good shit but he delivers so much weed to me I think I'd be putting him in a bad position.
I've done both and thought I'd try and detail a comparison for anyone thinking of coming over from the Emperor's Realm. TLDR it's a very different place in a good way.
wtf goes here? There is only 1 rule on little biggy: no harm. Like everything else this is ultimately interpreted by users vote but a few consistent things have been established and would take some doing to undo:
- Weapons and instruments of fraud as well as items harmful in their production like child pornography are fucked thankfully. Hacking tools are forbodden and even copyright piracy is considered stealing.
- Anything with a real risk for a lethal overdose is considered too harmful for this community. There seem to be some arguments around this.
Along with the fraud exclusion the reputation system here seems to almost completely eliminate scamming which for me is the biggest difference of all. Basically the way it works is your history is everything, you are like a ghost here without it. If you don't have one yet and you are a buyer you get to stall a dispute until you have gathered reputation. If you are a seller here it's a little more complicated. Basically I see people get a chance with a real short leash attached to it. There is still some accusations and posts are hella visible here so drama threads can get out of hand but only real buyers get to write reviews and rate you and that's all that matters when things go wrong or if you want your item seen.
Stability: During my time here which is over 3 years now it's been 100% uptime. My payment processor has gone down for about 24 hours total.
Non-profit: little biggy is not a business and doesn't have the motivation to make money and I think that ultimately this is the root of the big differences. If you're more mercenary like me you can find this annoying on some level but after a while you realize that there isn't much need for money if people write a little code so why not it makes for a nice place.
Wow, I can’t believe it’s been going since 2007, I only found this place a few days ago, I never would have, if it hadn’t been for a webpage called high and polite, so I am grateful to them, that I have found littlebiggy. I used to use Silk Road when that 1st started out, but no other site since. I’ve been doing some lurking and reading and will make a purchase. From what I can see I think it’s a well put together site and I am grateful for whoever put this together as it’s nice to be able to have lots of choice, something you don’t really get from the street. One Love man.
this from wikipedia "Darknet" was coined in the 1970s to designate networks isolated from ARPANET (the government-founded military/academical network which evolved into the Internet), for security purposes. Darknet addresses could receive data from ARPANET but did not appear in the network lists and would not answer pings or other inquiries.
The term gained public acceptance following publication of "The Darknet and the Future of Content Distribution", a 2002 paper by Peter Biddle, Paul England, Marcus Peinado, and Bryan Willman, four employees of Microsoft who argued the presence of the darknet was the primary hindrance to the development of workable digital rights management (DRM) technologies and made copyright infringement inevitable. This paper described "darknet" more generally as any type of parallel network that is encrypted or requires a specific protocol to allow a user to connect to it.
People feel like they are part of something legit in a way that doesn't exist on the darknet where everyone is just waiting for the next scam. Also feels different not to see all that gnarly shit when you first logon.
Hell yes. And right now I'm feeling super empathetic to the people that don't feel this. If there weren't people like this the world would be a mess I think, they are people that are critical, precise and tough as hell on themselves. They set standards in this world and enable the rest of us!
(1) What makes BTC more private than anything else (given the existence of the blockchain/escrow etc)?
(2) When BTC are sent to a wallet that already contains BTC, do they meld together in the manner of a T1000?
(3) Does the existence of BTC rely upon the existence of a digital historical record dating back to the inception of BTC? And if so could that be in danger from a series of freak electrical surges or magnetic storms?
really good questions 1 - the fact that transactions do not require identity make btc intrinsically "private" but the fact that transactions are completely public and wallets can be discovered with analysis is not so private. add in corporate exchanges that require irl identities and you have something that's only a little more private than a bank account unless you take precautions like mixing coins.
2 - they don't mold, they gather in chunks, this can increase your fees if you have lots of small chunks, kind of like the burden of dealing with small change.
3 - yes every transaction since that 1st pizza is "the" blockchain. no real danger of loss since nearly every wallet on earth has a complete copy of it.
Like all security questions this is relative to your idea of risk and the conditions in your jurisdiction. That said an ounce is pretty safe from all perspectives, easily concealed and not worth the time of evil agents.
You can basically put the potential problems into 2 categories: Financial Losses and Freedom Losses.
For financial losses your 1st risk is a bad seller, if things go wrong you will need the escrow system to get your money back. If you are a noob this might take time while you build your reputation and extend settlement time. Otherwise there isn't much risk here.
For losses of your freedom it depends how bad your jurisdiction is but there really aren't many places left on earth where you will be abducted for a small amount of cannabis. Again if you stay with proven sellers the stealth will more than cover this possibility.
been using lb for about a year ish now, first buy was a bit nail bitting and waiting for first delivery was well edgy, checking for unusal cars in my road etc. since then its been like buying the weekly food shopping online, just enjoy lb deliverys more. keep it up lb.
Dogs are not smelling for plant material. They're noses can detect different scents, chemicals, even molecules. It does't have to be visible to have a odor. Bloodhounds have over 300 MILLION scent receptors in their noses, there isn't much they can't detect. Detect is they key word here, they don't actually "smell" the scent they detect the molecules in the air using their nose.
Now dogs are being trained specifically to detect edibles, THC gummies and even vape carts. What they do is train the dog to recognize the signature odor of extracted THC mixed with say flour, or gelatin and now that is the smell that the dog will detect. It doesn't just try smell the THC through the item. It will know exactly what it's trying to find and how it should smell. It's kinda crazy.
I tried to find some sources that state that dogs can't detect C02 extracted THC but I couldn't find anything. Do you have any? I'd love to be more knowledgeable on this, especially if I'm missing something.
The Medium is The Message - Marshall McLuhan (youtube)
A man that saw the world in centuries and foresaw what technology would do to humanity in the one ahead of him. Many gems pop up here, I don't think the man would have minded if you kept it in the background as you multi-tasked.
I think it's the same thing McLuhan missed, that broadcast would evolve into 2 way communications and when that happens its a whole different set of assumptions. Everything McLuhan talks about assumes a 1 way channel and a population of observers.
That depends on the cops, in my neighbrhod they patrol on foot and are friendly instead of trying to strike fear. They also are professionals and a lot calmer than a bunch of idiots staring at their door cams looking for a purpose in life.
Sufficient measures can be taken to counter that surveillance. The internet is not broken, it's just not compatible with the concept of nation states and their urge to tax and judge their citizens by continuously gathering and demanding more information about their citizens, assets, beliefs and whereabouts.
Anonymous Peer to peer sharing and peer to peer transactions void the concept of nation states, as peers can be anywhere. Their nation is the swarm in which they participate. Their legislation is an algorithm. Their identity is none.
What we are seeing now is the end of an empire, it struggles to stay relevant and attempts to take or violate certain away human rights. That is not sustainable.
The L Grow Collective is by far my favorite here having tried 1 other :). Started with their chocolate edibles and was knocked out as they warned. Just got their Kush and it has me very happy, 10/10 both times>very cool and respect worthy vendor with good coms and fast delivery. I will probably stay with him a while before venturing out again eventually.
I have only bought my stuff from one vendor, The L Grow Collective. Never been the slightest problem buying from them. I live on the east coast and l usually get my order in 3 days, even though they're located on the left coast. I haven't burned the same strain, even after more than a dozen orders. I'm sticking with them.
Thanks, honestly, all do help, but to differing degrees. So far I'm not getting as much relief from sativas. I was hoping, because I have a hard time getting anything done, and indica makes that even worse. I guess I'll try more hybrids.
Hybrid is really the only play then, it's not even a subjective problem as to which one though; everyone has different reactions to cannabis. The top guys here all have excellent hybrids I would try one at a time in the smallest quantity until you find the right one. Then stock up on that particular batch if more is available.
It's a matter of where they pushed it, basically a greedy bunch of bastards that thought playing ball with governments would mainstream btc and make them a fortune. Naturally they were played out and bitcoin suffered, it's on a worse trajectory today because of their efforts.
Without attaching any name, the BTC Foundation has and had people that are millionaire in BTC through various scams: Pump/Dump, hidden components in website code to use cpu power to mine using visitors, malware, fraud ... Their holdings require broad acceptance and banks that for sure will provide creative solutions to have all parked on some offshore. All the rest is bullshit and window dressing. Most stuff I mention can even be verified if you know how to use Google.
Cowboy Bebop is amazing, beautifully written, drawn, and directed. Don't be turned off by the 1st episode which isn't very sci fi and more like film noir cliche stuff. The future world unfolds over the episodes along with the back story of how it evolved though another great thing is each episode stands independently.
