  • How do I use a dry herb vape properly?

    So I have used a resin vape pen, a thc disposable and edibles and while the disposable makes me cough if I inhale wrong, the dry herb vape will straight up make me throw up due to little bits of weed getting inhaled. Is it a technique issue or maybe I ground it incorrectly,

    I feel like he does a pretty good job explaining the origin of the suburbs from a geopolitics position, though some of the youtube comments are unhinged.

    I've noticed that standard vapes make me cough out my lungs, every. Freaking. Time.

    But my rosin vape doesn't do that. I might cough if I puff too many times in a row but even then it doesn't hurt, just tickles. What is added to standard vapes that I am reacting too? Is it a quality problem or should I just get rosin from now on?

    So I found a cheap bridge camera that I have free access to. Is it worth learning on.

    I have free access to a family member's camera but it really isn't the best. I think it has a 1/2" sensor though the sensor is not listed anywhere on the box or in the manual which I guess is a red flag. Should I wait and save up more money to buy a better camera or could I use this one to learn on?

    Why do so many videos and even online camera stores call the 4/3 type sensor "Micro Four Thirds" when Micro Four Thirds is a mirrorless camera mount format?

    I get that they sound similar but they absolutely are not the same thing and its use implies that there are only mirrorless cameras.

    I found a video describing a clever way to turn old bags into panniers

    I am sure this would work for messenger bags, camera bags, or really any bag. And hard board backing could be added to them from rubbing on the wheels.

    I got this guy second hand and have some big plans for it.

    > I had been looking for a bike to get around my local city and managed to snag a Huffy cruiser for $50. It is in decent shape with only some superficial rust on the pedals. This will be a big learning experience for me as I haven't ridden a bike for nine years. I'll both learn how to use a bike to run errands and how to do some of my own maintenance. Maybe even customize it a bit by adding a frame lock and a 3 speed gear hub. I guess we shall see how far I get in this learning and fitness quest.

    Can a "Dutch" utility bike be made in the US?

    So I live in the US and I have seen a few videos proclaiming the virtues of Dutch style bikes including NoJustBike's video. They all are saying that these bikes cannot be found in the US but couldn't one just buy a step through frame and just add the missing features themselves such as a chain guard and parallel handle bars?

    Do you guys think velomobiles/pedal cars will ever become a thing?

    A sheltered e-bike seems perfect for the winters where I live but the ones I see available start at $10,000 which seems very steep given they are categorized as bikes.

    Got to do a Chinese gong fu tea tasting and bought some Persian cardamom tea

    I enjoyed the Jasmine tea and the white tea, which tasted like incense smells. The green tea tasted like spinach and the oolong didnt taste like much. The fermented tea tasted like cut grass. The Cardamom Ceylon black tea didnt have a strong flavor at first but with sweetener, the cardamom really pops. I had hoped that I would like tea unsweetened so that I would have a healthy beverage but it is either no strong enough, bitter, or tastes like plant. To be fair, only the cheap store brand tea has been bitter. Any suggestions for teas to try that are more on the fruity, nutty, floral, or spice side?

    Not from State Farm. Sorry to disappoint. I'm just a half-Iranian American exploring the fediverse. I am interested in science, tech, philosophy, animals, comedy, a wide range of music, and even politics. Though the politics in my country are plain depressing atm.
