@flip There are aspects of the internet that work that way, but they all seem to have technical solutions

@nuagezero It's a photo of Gridbeam!

It is my opinion that every family should have a big pile of gridbeam, but it is not produced in enough places just now.

I'm sort of obsessed with non-destructive construction aesthetic. No nails, no glues, everything connected with bolts and clamps and joinery, no wire ever laid in a place you wont be able to reach later, nothing permanent, everything renegotiable.

Follow these principles and experimentation will have no material costs.

I don't know how practical it is, but I was raised on Lego and Data and an edict of Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and so I do not know if I can live well any other way, I just need it

"Live-updating Comment threads" o{o (although arguably this isn't really good, since you don't want things moving around while you're reading them)

Hm other sources are saying it's a complete protein, maybe they just mean it can be improved a fair bit with the addition of wheat.

If it turns out that the real reason I love this is because I started taking vitamin D pills at around the same time as I started making it (usually eaten during the meal) that's going to be disappointing

@cblgh spaghett cooked for 25 minutes at high pressure disgusting

I could add bulgar though, it handles it better

Hm. Nope, not a complete protein apparently: "Amaranth grain is deficient in essential amino acids such as leucine and threonine[9][10] – (both of which are present in wheat germ)"

An unprofessional recipe for the staple meal I have been scarfing for like 2 months now, Amaranth Chickpea: makopool.com/amaranth_chickpea
(I might update the review once I've measured and perfected the quantities involved)

"may well be at the very optimum of nutrition, taste, ease of cooking and affordability"

Dream that the country or maybe the entire world was flooding. The defense force were giving children helepacks and telling them to just fly east as far as they could.

@grey @aadil I've definitely heard that there's a lot of variation in efficacy between tree species.

If it comes to the worst might have to fall back to energy-intensive methods that store the CO2 as compressed gas in underground reservoires. It will cost more but it does not seem impossible.

@rek I wonder if it would be worth using a big load of saltwater and then rinsing the saltwater out or something.

Are you quite freshwater-constrained? What kinds of stuff do you have for desalination? Are you able to use anything like the filters they use at industrial desalination plants?

@amorris I don't know whether I can do anything about the grab handle and the Xes. I'll probably keep digging at it.

It was a mistake to stick with Vivaldi as long as I did. Firefox + Tree Style Tabs + a few css mods to clean things up.

@body Note this is only appropriate for memetic weapons breeding programmes like the one we're engaging in. Healthy baselines shouldn't do this.
