The UN defines a child as <18 and adult as >18.
On 2017-12-31 everyone born after 2000 would be <18 years old, but only for that day as anyone born on 2000-01-01 would be exactly 18 years old on 2018-01-01.
This does only go by the UN definition and not local countries domestic definitions of majority which can be anything from age 15 to 21…[Read more]
Got this from a website used by NHS UK (it has some medical jargon but is the best description of overdose symptoms I could find)
a few people in different ends of England (Essex and County Durham) keeled over from contaminated cocaine but its not yet clear what the adulterant was (could even have been fentanyl in those cases)
this might put it in context, he is famous not just for yodelling (which he has been doing since the 1980s in Bavaria) but yodelling to chickens 😁
(this might be harder to understand as its in Boarisch dialect rather than standard German, but he is singing about having to catch a chicken because it flew away and then got cooked by someone else,…[Read more]
I’m still here, but law changes, some health issues (nothing too bad in the end, all recovered) and also getting older means I’ve cleaned up my lifestyle a lot (even quit smoking) but also don’t do as much hedonistic/music related stuff as before
plus I became an uncle (twice) last year, so I thought “maybe I should look after myself and try and…[Read more]
Another forum I am on about vintage electronics had same issue with software change (they also use a modified wordpress core now), it took quite a while for their core users to return but they did, and I am one of the youngest there (most are aged 70+!)
But of course hobby electronics isn’t normally controversial/illegal (unless you’re making…[Read more]
Just a reminder that pills in circulation across Northern Europe remain extra strong at >200mg. There have recently been fatal OD’s in Denmark, and in the case below from the SW of England two young lads who were found guilty of supplying to a friend of theirs who did not survive were very lucky to escape prison in part because because the parents…[Read more]
Beware if visiting Rotterdam that RedAlert (curated alerts from NL drugs testing centres) report that cocaine contaminated with atropine is in circulation. Taking this can be unpleasant and dangerous and several users have required emergency medical treatment!

alas, whilst you were away the whole site had to be changed from vbulletin to WordPress as vbulletin was falling apart and insecure and the site was crashing for days, posts were going out of index, disappearing etc. It wouldn’t have been possible to carry on with VB and keep a secure/usable site.

I still post here now and then and Angel is still around – a lot of folk seem to struggle with the WordPress based UI (as its more a thing for blogs than forums) and one version was laggy but Dr B is doing a lot of work behind the scenes to make it smoother/easier to use.
I suspect though the 2016 UK ban on “research chemicals” and political…[Read more]

The new “Mastodon” social network is *very* LGBT-friendly, although not exclusively for LBGT folk, many are involved in its creation and there are whole instances for them and any harrassment etc is stopped very quickly (there are LGBT specific ones or you can pick one of the European or Canadian instances)

if you accept the UN definitions of an adult as >18 years of age, this means that on NYE; every adult alive will have been born in the 20th century; and every child in the 21st (but it will only be true for this day alone..)
