Yeah kids do take a toll holy crap. I'd like to think I look younger than my years, but that's just optimism. The first 3 or so years of child-rearing probably age you 6-9. I think it's all the sleep deprivation and having to say "no" all the time.

In the long run people with kids are supposed to live longer and healthier, and I think that comes down to the social effects.

Nope but I did take 50mg of methylone. I was so insanely groggy when I woke up and caffeine wouldn't to8ch it and I have a work day needing a lot of thought and energy. It worked beautifully. :) I should lock it back up in my time lock safe though so I don't take more.

Methylone is sort of empathogenic no? I couldn’t imagine doing work on an MDx compound

^ Same here, when I first started getting into RCs I was kinda scared of cathinones lol. Now that I'm not, the best ones seem pretty hard to come by. The only one I've tried is 3-MMC, and I liked it a lot.

I had some kava kava early in the day yesterday, which often keeps me up all night. To try to counteract that, I had a 5mg delta 8 edible, then vaped some more before bed. I didn't get that high from it, but I'll be damned if I didn't sleep for TWELVE AND A HALF HOURS. I couldn't believe it! 😅

Cathinones are a good thing to be scared of. I've been in the RC world for twenty years now, and the only ones that I've seen lots of people destroy their lives with are cathinones and dissos (especially PCP analogs.) I'm sure opioids and benzos, too, but not in my friend group.

I quite like that stuff but have not been able to get any for a long time.
About 2 years ago a friend got a hold of me pretty pissed that a half oz of molly he bought from what was essentially a random dealer tested as methylone.
I was actually excited and would have got it right away but I actually delayed because he wanted the price of a half oz of mdma to recoup his losses, and I wasn't
sure if I wanted to pay that.
Apparently the demand for it was high enough that he sold it to someone else during that time.
Oh well....
I don't really find it all that similar to mdma though, which I guess is weird.

It's not all that similar, it's definitely a cathinone. It's empathogenic, but much more of a stimulant, more dopaminergic

I just realized something, since I took 3-Me-PCP three weeks ago I've been thinking a lot about gratefulness. I was sitting in my room, listening to the new GY!BE album, which is quite dark at times, and started thinking about the misery in the world, that seems to have become more visible specially during the pandemic. Well, I don't really know how living these times from a first world country is like, but here in LATAM it has really come to show the flaws in our economies and public health services, and has made it clear that the illusion of wealth brought by the capitalists reforms of the latter half of the past century is just that, an illusion. In the end we are on our own in this system, even though we all contribute to the production of the wealth. We are promised security , comfort and abundance, as long as we contribute to the economy through labor. But in the reality, the promised goods are only for a small percent of the people, the poor always suffer more in the face of crisis.

Well, sorry for the political rant, but my dissociated mind was exploring similar pathways that night, but then I stopped for a minute, looked around, and recognized that despite all the misery of this world I'm still privileged enough to live comfortably, and take a night off to take a novel dissociative drug, enjoy some music in the company of my loving girlfriend and soft cat-friend, and was flooded with this sense of gratitude for my own life. And it was like a switch flipped on my brain, I've been thinking about the stuff I'm grateful for in my life a lot lately. My last trip on bicycle day came to reinforce that and further installed the idea in my head. It's been a recurring theme lately.

So in that context, last night while I was browsing bluelight I came to recognize that I'm also very grateful for this space. I have very very few people in real life, if any, to share this experiences with, and discuss the compounds we consume in the way we do here. And in a way it's such a big part of my life and interests. I mean I've never been one to dose for weeks on end, but after all these years there's been so much invested into this exploration of psychoactives, they are a huge aspect of what I've lived and what I've thought about, so it would be weird not having anyone to talk about this and share experiences, anecdotes, tips, words of warning... But I have all of you to share this journey of self-discovery and pharmacological curiosity, and I really, really do feel grateful for that. It's easy to take for granted, but I've wanted to explicitly thank you all for being here and making this place what it is.

I know you were just discussing empathogens, but I'm completely sober right now BTW, lol.

Well said @Img_9999

I was reading some heartbreaking stories on BBC of loss from COVID in Brazil, same story as always man, the poor getting fucked. We need an alternative but I don't know what it is. Capitalism is eating the planet alive, and exponentially enriching the people closer to the top, and lifting the bottom up just barely enough to keep them from bringing out the guillotines. But just devastating the planet in front of our eyes. My best stab at a vision for the political future is a world that tempers the capitalist beast with a balance of socialism, strong unilateral environmental regulation. Strong government, but with that we have to be vigilant to prevent corruption. Hopefully technology and scientific/engineering progress fills in a lot of the gaps to provide for the many with low impact, sharing economy, services that approach zero-marginal cost. I do think psychedelics play a role in a thriving future where people come into closer harmony with each other and the planet, so in that sense I'm cheering the psychedelic renaissance, although there will certainly be blowback and problems in the coming years.

I hope COVID is part of the transformation we need, I hope it's waking people up somehow to the fact that we need to cooperate globally, that we can change.

The new Godspeed You Black Emporer is really good, thanks for pointing it out. I had to google the acronym, wasn't familiar with it. I've been following them peripherally for a long time, never as an ardent fan, more as an appreciative bystander. They are able to convey so much emotion in their music. Those epic heaving hypnotic distorted guitar journeys.. reminds me so much of early Sonic Youth, Daydream Nation etc.

I'm really grateful for this little bluelight PD community too. It's an oasis in the internet.

I believe that capitalism, in its ideal form, is a good system, but it needs to be tempered with elements of socialism. A democratic socialist form of capitalism that has robust oversight and safeguards against corruption allows the most people a chance at a good life and can keep power distributed among the voting public. We've allowed our system to stagnate and become more of an oligarchy, through apathy and manipulation. But we shouldn't throw the baby out with the bathwater just because it's become corrupted. All forms of human organization are vulnerable to corruption from sociopaths, there is no perfect system.
