    The Nootropics Thread

    Back in the early nineties I first learned about nootropics when I read Smart Drugs Dr. Ward Deen. I met Ward when I became a member of the American College for the Advancement of Medicine. He introduced me to Steve Fowkes Director of the no longer extant Cognitive Enhancement Institute, CERI...

    Laser Building, Eyesight, Magnification, and Lighting

    OK, guys, forgive me, I have not been around for a while. So here it is. My eyesight is not quite what it was. I never wore glasses. It is now harder for me to see what I am doing with the naked eye. I have tried the stuff you wear on your head but with increased magnification, as you know...

    The worst example of poor laser safety I’ve ever seen!

    At one time, and I have not kept up with it, the Wechsler Adult Intelligence Test had the question, "how many US Senators are there," in the sub-test which deals with fund of knowledge, which in part reflects intelligence. In 1994 I was living near Nashville and happened to ask a 35 year old...

    The worst example of poor laser safety I’ve ever seen!

    Actually, the video has some educational value. However, it could be improved by asking him some simple questions. How many US senators are there? Point out Russia on a map. What is the difference between a democracy and a republic? I am sure he would not be able to answer any of these...

    New Two Tone 10X Jetlaser BE

    It was always that way. I am just having some fun. I could not get a rubber lens cover to stay on it so I dipped it in plastidip. Usually, when I want to do this permanently I use their speical primer. However, the shape is such that it will not come off without being pulled. Now the rubber...
