My Flowhood Build

In my heyday, American made muscle could be bought cheap enough for a teenager. My brothers generation, all they know is 4 bangers. Jap cars. They look at horsepower numbers and weight and scoff at American muscle. They've never been in a car like that. That feeling where your cruising around in your 80s camaro or mustang, the sound of the carb sucking in, the sound, the power, the car is big inside and very comfy, plush by today's standards. That's a car. The chick with you is very comfortable sticking her hands or of the t-tops man. The jap cars just don't have that, they are cramped, feels like tin can, the engine doesn't sound as good. My opinion. My dream car right now would be an 80's Monte Carlo ss, gnx, grand national, Buick regal, caprice, 383 stroker, carbeurated. All black everything, old school black American racing rims. Something like that. BENCH SEATS BABY LOL, let's go to the drive in. In car magazines I see these sick cars from the 80s back, then they have these rims on them that look dumb to me. Like they belong on a 3000 gt or something. I'd take the car to the place and tell the guy, "I want it to look straight out of the 80s. Matte black, no gaudy rims". The stereo system will be modern tho of course

ya im not into the 4 banger and 6cyl stuff really. a few here and there are cool. If i was going to have a v6 i would rather have a van.

My first car was a Chevy asro van. I loved that van. It was so awesome for hanging with friends, everyone pile in. I want a van too. On the highway I saw a nice plymouth voyager all black, very sharp looking. I want one of those. I love vans. I like the Subarus too. My mom has a Subaru station wagon type thing. It's really nice, comfy, fast as fuck, and better in the snow than a 4 wheel drive truck.

I've owned 2 dodge challengers, a 72 & 73, the 72 had a 340 and I was putting a 69' 440 in the 73 when hard times hit and had to sell. Both cars were fkn awesome to be in and the feeling of raw horsepower under your ass cannot be replaced, Ever! wish I still had pics. Only some of the 73 when I was tearing it apart :(

my parents had two Chevelle's 70 (4 door) and 69 (2dr Malibu)when i was growing up. I miss thous cars like crazy, today cost to up keep or redo them to make them a dependable daily driver is just not in most budget.  My Grand Prix GTP still can run on todays street and still is cheap if broken and upkeep. Im still a USA car maker kinda guy. But everyone around me loves honda,  has them Slammed, put NOS in them. LOUD ass mufflers. Nice to watch them but i couldn't get myself buy one last time i was looking.Just how i feel. :hippie:

i have an air scrubber for mold remediation..  its 3' x3' x 3'   its a monster..  the prefilter is 2" thick, and then it gets pulled into the hepa filter, and is shot out by a 10" duct..  my question is..  should the whole machine be in my room, to constantly filter the room  or only the duct since the air will be filtered and clean?

we arent using the flow hood like an air scrubber. its actually the reverse. negative air machines filter the air in the room where the containment is, and pipe the clean air out of a window (i never understood why we blow it out of the window when its already clean). a flowhood blows sterile air over a workspace so that you can work in a clean environment.

 

Depending on your brand of negative air machine, the hepa filters usually dont filter bacteria, just spores. bacteria is usually way smaller than spores (down to 3 microns), so if you ever plan on taking that filter out and making a hood out of it, you will need to investigate its quality (you need it down to about .03 microns).

 

ps i am certified by the IICRC in water damage and microbial restoration (or now clean trust) ;)

      My normal 10 qt Tubs I do my regular sub prep and add 2 qts spawn to the 10 or maybe 16 (unsure) tub. I duct tape all the holes and put in black trash bag. So far this seems to work as long as I let the bag air out and not suffocate the tub. I think the lid to my tub is loose enough to allow air flow. My mini zombie tub I sealed all the holes but the duct tape is quite loose so I think proper FAE can ensue. I like how you left space and then put micropore tape over. I think I will do that. the larger mini tubs do great so far no probs but this is my first mini-mini zomb mon tub..

      Pushed wrong button, again, The first time I made wine it was from Welch's concord juice . It also ran away in the closet of my parents brand new house, & that was before "stainless " carpet . I use to trade with a co. Called defalcoes. I believe they're still in biz & even way back they handled everything. Some hippy community out in Cal. Copper ed 3 different sizes of stave barrels. I've had 3 myself & they r such a pain to maintain. I started bottling long necks , but opted out to putting it in cold duck wine bottles . I'd buy those nylon corks by the gross ,pound them in with a rubber mallet & then put a wiring harness on them to keep them from blowing their top a stack them in the old time wood cases that king size cokes came in . I can still remember the blue smoke that use to spiral up when I use to bust the top on those Suckers. I'm gradually getting back into it again . I did trade with a co. That went total mail order . Hearing all this brew talk kinda gets me geared up to take another swing at it . I've always wanted to cold brew an ale type beer. It's all pricey to get set up though. That peach /mango sounds interesting. Buy the way , can u send photos on a pm. ? Later Bro.😎 Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

      Yes, it went from tissue clone on MEA, then plates were blended in autoclaved blender. The blend was added to malt powder in 2800 ml flask that was autoclaved. Trust me no contamination it creates clean bags of spawn. Usually liquid culture separates as heavy colonies sink and liquid stays on top. Here the culture is so thick it has trapped the air bubbles from shaking and that causes the colonies to float. The growth on top is from it sitting in mason jar and exposed surface is myceliating from exposure to air. You would not see if it had bacterial contamination as you suggest, but you would see the effects of that contamination. And assuming it was contaminated you would likely see other contaminates such as trich. I use heavy LC rates of 50 ml to 150 ml on grain spawn because I produce a lot of LC and I achieve full colonization within 6 days with this wild variety. If it was contaminated I doubt that would be possible. I have included a picture of Wine Cap at 6 days of shaking with similar results from a syringe, non wild. If it was left for 10 days it would have achieved the same thickness. I have also included pink oyster from syringe and more wild oyster from wild variety. Results are the same. Orbital shaker creates a different LC then you are used to seeing with stir bars. Colonies are allowed to colonize faster with more oxygen and less cellular damage. Colonies can grow to large sizes because they don't get smashed by a stir bar as they pass between the bar and the bottom of a flask. Sent from my SM-G928V using Tapatalk

      Dam that looks contaminated to he'll. Anything wild should be agar tranfered clean before massive production. Looks like it's fight bactira on the bottom. Then dieing then growing on its dead stuff until it grow to the top. Lol this is awesome sauce

      Kathleen Harrison presents a wonderful talk here on the Big Species: Much material worth discussing. For one, she touches upon the Mazatec tradition that each species of mushroom with a history of traditional usage has its own qualities that are unique to it. She also points out that the Mazatec people do not view the mushrooms as a "drug," but as a living being you enter into a relationship with. And, for yet another topic of interest, she points out that the real work has always been done in the underground, at the folk level. Through our work with the mushrooms we are cultivating awareness, developing relationships, caring for one another and our environment. That the medicine is being looked at by our professionals is wonderful, but, as I am sure you all know, we are light years ahead of them in the work and understanding we have been doing over the past 40 years. The cutting edge is right here, among us, as we cultivate a living relationship with the spirit in the mushrooms, Los Santos Niños. γνῶθι σεαυτόν Gnôthi seautón Know thyself
