Darknet Part 1: What is the darknet and why should I care?

23/06/2018

 

Welcome to Part 1 of my guide to the Darknet.  Well, I say “mine” but it’s actually by many people.  And, just so you all know I’m not trying to pass off this guide as my own words, I’m going to show the words actually coming out of their true creators’ mouths, thanks to the miracle of video streaming over the internet! Thanks be to Youtube,eh!!

Okay, part 1 of this series is a primer on the Deep Web and the Darknet.  It’s a TEDx talk by Alex Winter (of Bill & Ted fame), entitled “The Darknet isn’t what you think”.  There are some misconception about what illegal services were available through the Silk Road website.  For instance child pornography was banned.  Stolen goods weren’t allowed.  Ads for contract killers weren’t allowed.

Anyway, check out the vid.  Enjoy!

Next time: A film about the rise and fall of the Silk Road

 


How to get stoned on pineapple or grapefruit juice!

20/04/2016

Note:  Be careful with this info.  I do not want people telling me how irresponsible I’ve been posting this info.  Though I would like to make clear: all this info is available elsewhere.  I’ve added links to those elsewheres. Also, this blog entry is for educative and informative purposes only.  I’m telling you a true thing.  What you decide to do with the info, but bear in mind: “drugs are bad, m’kay?”  Don’t blame me for reality.  Thanks.

Okay, you’re not going to get stoned by drinking pineapple juice (or grapefruit juice) alone.  If that were the case, pineapples and grapefruit would be illegal!  You need a benzo (eg “Valium”/diazepam) for this to work.  Maybe other benzos too.  Benzodiazepines are often difficult to get hold of (doctors don’t like to prescribe them as they are addictive and make you feel good: drugs that make you feel good are evil according the official standard) – but I read the leaflet that came with a pack of diazepam and it said not to drink much pineapple juice when on the drug.  I did some digging, and discovered that diazepam + pineapple juice > diazepam alone!  Here’s some of what I read online:

Grapefruit juice may increase the amount of diazepam in your blood. If you are elderly, suffer from cirrhosis or any of the conditions listed in section 2, this could possibly increase the sedative effects of Diazepam tablets and you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist. [http://www.medicines.org.uk/emc/medicine/18061/XPIL/]

and:

When taking Valium, avoid eating grapefruit or drinking grapefruit juice, as it may increase the level of the drug in the blood, resulting in confusion or excessive drowsiness. [http://www.healthyfoodguide.com.au/articles/2010/july/food-and-drugs-dangerous-combinations]

Diazepam: do NOT take these with grapefruit/pineapple juice. Seriously! An overdose is most definitely Not A Good Thing!!

Diazepam: do NOT take these with grapefruit/pineapple juice. Seriously! An overdose is most definitely Not A Good Thing!!

According to http://www.health.harvard.edu/family_health_guide/grapefruit-and-medication-a-cautionary-note grapefruit (and therefore pineapple juice)have this effect on the following benzos:

Diazepam (Valium)

Triazolam (Halcion)

Midazolam (Versed)

Flurazepam (Dalmane)

Clonazepam (Klonopin)

And that holiest-of-holies, Wikipedia, claims:

Grapefruit juice has also been reported to increase both the bioavailability of some benzodiazepines, (such as diazepam) and greatly slow the rate of metabolization [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grapefruit_juice]

So, unlike the old aspirin-and coca-cola story, the grapefruit/pineapple juice mix does work.  Not that I’ve tried it myself (anyone who knows me IRL knows how anti-drugs I am) but this unlikely-sounding mix is true.  A very good friend has assured me so.

 

Incidentally, while doing research for this blog entry I came across this: (benzos) A new way to ingest diazepam (and most likely other benzos) – here.

The moral of this story: don’t take drugs…?

So all you want is bloody poetry huh?

17/04/2016

I try to blog as often as I can.  But I’m really depressed that only my poems get Likes.  My political, cultural and other entries get next to no interest.  I’m not going to stop posting stuph about politics, culture, privacy, security and the other subjects that get me riled.  And the poetry of course (bread and circuses FFS).  I’d just be happier if my “serious” posts got more attention.

Also, even the poems get next-to-no Comments.  I need Comments so I can hopefully improve. Please please, poetry Likers, could you also Comment?  I’d really appreciate it.  Thanks for reading.

UPDATE: as of 18 April (day after posting) I’ve received two Likes: from anthonymize and Juansen Dizon.  Just general, click-the-Like-button likes, and no comments.  Likes please me, as I have an ego that enjoys beeing stroked; but the whole point of this post is that I want Comments too.  If you’re too shy to make Comments readable by everyone who visits the blog post, there’s a Contact Form button at the top of the page.  You can put your Comments there, abd if you want anonymity that’s what I’ll give you – your name etc will not be kept on record if that’s what you want.

sad-face-sticker

Leave Comments, damn your eyes!

This blog isn’t an anthology of what I consider my best work.  I put works-in-progress here, meh stuph that I’d love to be reviewed and love to get Comments on.  So pleeeze! – if you have the time, write something in the Comments or Contact Form.  Comment on my blog, I’ll come look at your blog, if you have a blog of course, and if I can create a window in my already bursting bag of commitments.  That last bit is a joke of course.  But in all serious, Comment on me and I’ll Comment on yours.  Quid Pro Quo I think it’s called: washing each others’ backs.

Cheers, Martin X!

Google Maps that tell you where to find your local dope dealer!

03/12/2014

EDIT: WARNING: If you click on the “Map Dealers” link below, you may get a warning that the site is up to no good, possibly injecting malicious code into your browser.  This may be a genuinely malicious site, or maybe the browser companies have been asked by police authorities to warn off potential visitors.  I don’t want to take the chance, and if you want to take my advice, I’d say don’t click on it either.  Of course the choice is yours.  I’m just warning you.  So if you do click on the link and your computer is assimilated into the Borg Collective, or if your personal data is stolen, don’t come crying to me about it.  I’m not clicking on the link, and I’d suggest you also steer clear of it.  But I haven’t taken this page (or the link) down as I believe in freedom – even if that means freedom to screw up big time!  You have been warned!!!

There have been online services to help you find local drug dealers for ages. The Silk Road 2.0 was closed down by a joint operation by the FBI, ICE Homeland Security Investigations, and “European law enforcement agencies acting through Europol and Eurojust” last month (Nov 2014) – but meanwhile for more than two and a half years, the Russian Anonymous Marketplace, or RAMP has maintained a thriving business in the Dark Web drug trade, offering one of the Internet’s widest arrays of narcotics to its Russian-speaking clientele.

The Russian Anonymous Marketplace... a Russo-centric version of the world-wide Map Dealers!

The Russian Anonymous Marketplace… a Russo-centric version of the world-wide Map Dealers!

So, Map Dealers have done some fancy jiggery-pokery so you can locate cannabis dealers on Google Maps!!( Because cannabis dealing is illegal in most places, the “new kid on the block – Map Dealers – are operating via the darkweb and tor. But don’t worry, darkweb and tor are not magical incantations. If you have computer and internet know-how, a bit of reading around the subject should help you install any specialist applications required, as will visiting Tor2web and https://ahmia.fi/address/mapdnzvn7q4esfko It’s worth the effort, if you want to smoke some weed and the only alternative is approaching strangers in a strange town asking to buy illegal drugs! Map Dealers makes it clear that they are not interested in helping dealers of other drugs – theirs is a cannabis-only service. Maybe dealers of other drugs will sneak in, but if/when discovered they will be booted off the system. No dangerous addictive drugs here matey (yes, I know some people believe that cannabis is a dangerous, addictive drug too, but that’s a conversation for another day…).

So, you’re a stranger in a strange land and want to buy some cannabis? Then check out Map Dealers! Or, don’t check it out! Never let it be said that I condone law-breaking…

Unintentional prank emailing

26/03/2014

stoned-agin

 

After a lifetime of sex and drugs and rock n roll, I have learned a few things (despite my brain atrophying to the size of a garden pea). Admittedly a lot of this learning is due to people sending me emails or texts that say “wtf you on about last night?” and “omg I didn’t know you love me!  Let’s get married!  A June wedding would be so wonderful!!”   When you end up marrying some bird you don’t even like, that is your inner self begging for you to get your dumb ass in order.  Drugs = good times = fun is all very good.  But when your actions under the influence bring to the mind the phrase “drugsarebadmmkay?” it’s time to ease back a little, take some time to smell the coffee/roses, and generally STOP BEING SUCH A COCK!

Sending declarations of everlasting love to ex-partners is not good.  Especially when those exes dumped you years ago and are now happily married with 2 kids.  Telling your ex-boss that he is a dumbass for sacking your ass can be good.  But not via email, SMS, Twitter, Facebook… you think that’s gonna  look good on your CV?  FFS Foolish child!

When you plan to get pissed and/or stoned, first of all cut your arms off so you can’t do any of the above.  Legs too, it’s possible to type with toes and even elbows.  Keep your feelings under control until you’re sober.  Then you’ll see how ABSOLUTELY STUPID your it-seemed-perfectly-fine-at-the-time plan actually is.  Drugs + internet = Noooo!  Bear this in mind, you mindless fools!

Pot’s great, sez the prez! Now where did I put those king-size Rizlas?

20/01/2014

At last, at long last, an American president has not only admitted to smoking marijuana, he’s thinks it’s better than booze!

Of course that was the Clinton “did he inhale?” question.  But that was weak.  Obama equated pot with cigarettes:

“As has been well documented, I smoked pot as a kid, and I view it as a bad habit and a vice, not very different from the cigarettes that I smoked as a young person up through a big chunk of my adult life,” he is quoted as saying in a New Yorker magazine article. “I don’t think it is more dangerous than alcohol.”

So there we have it: Obama has told his two daughters that smoking marijuana is “a bad idea, a waste of time, not very healthy”, but he hasn’t tried any of the “gateway drug” and “reefer addicted rapists”.  He disapproves of dope because of its inherent dangers (for example, the risk of lung cancer that goes with smoking just about anything) but at the same time he disapproves of alcohol – in fact, it seems he disapproves of alcohol far more than pot!

Some US states are considering decriminalizing pot use.  From the Guardian:

Marijuana remains illegal in the United States under federal law, but 21 US states allow or are about to allow medical marijuana use, and Colorado and Washington have decriminalised use of pot entirely. Alaska and the District of Columbia are considering following suit.

The Obama administration said last year that federal law enforcement will not target users in Colorado and Washington, as long as they comply with their respective states’ laws. The Department of Justice says it will not interfere with states’ efforts to regulate and tax marijuana provided they are able to meet a set of requirements, including keeping it from children and restricting its flow into other states.

Obama believes smoking marijuana is a “bad habit” but thinks legal penalties now fall disproportionately on minorities and that states legalising pot should go ahead with their plans, but he sees problems ahead for Colorado and Washington legislation.  He’s leading from the front: but he knows that there are a lot of puritanical prohibitionists who will be difficult to get on board.  Obama recognizes the anti-pot propaganda for what it is – a load of BS – but there are a lot of folk out there who still believe 60 years of demonisation of the issue. But don’t give up Obama: this could be the best thing to come from his lack-lustre presidency!

Pills that make you mad!

06/11/2013

DothiepinMany years ago, a mate of mine with psychology problems swapped a bottle of Dothiepin (now known as Dosulepin) for some hash. Dothiepin was what me and my mates called a “mad drug”.  It helped mad people to function “as normal”.  What I didn’t know was that a sane person who took Dothiepin went through a spell of insanity.

I gave a few pills to a couple of people I know and boom! they suffered this insanity.  Multi-sensory hallucinations (visual, aural, touch) were all too common – and seemed so real.  One of my guinea pigs reported that, after I’d left him, he carried on making conversations with me (visual, aural etc), and that night he had for hours that I was hiding under his bed!  Another mate reported similar phenomena.  So, mad pills make you mad.

Now I gotta find my “normal pills” so all you fools think I’m normal! Pweet-woot wanna bing bong!

Why is the UK government making khat illegal?

05/10/2013

Khat is a flowering plant native to the Horn of Africa and the Arabian Peninsula. In 1980, the World Health Organization (WHO) classified it as a “drug of abuse” that can produce “mild to moderate psychological addiction” but less so than alcohol or tobacco. Khat chewing is a social custom that has gone on for thousands of years in the regions where it is grown, and no problems were ever identified. But because it can cause excitement, loss of appetite and euphoria, it has become a “problem drug” that is being made illegal in the so-called “developed” world. The plant has been targeted by anti-drug organizations such as the DEA and is already a controlled substance in some countries, such as the United States, Canada and Germany.

Because khat was being looked at so hardly, the British government commissioned an investigation by the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs. After a review of the evidence, the expert committee recommended in January 2006 that khat should remain legal. But the Conservatives weren’t happy with that. On 3 July 2013, the British Home Secretary Theresa May announced that khat was to be banned, designating it a Class C substance under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. Accordingly, the Frank drug advice site says:

Khat and the law
Khat will shortly become a Class C drug which means it will be illegal. If you are caught with the drug (possession) you could go to prison for two years and get an unlimited fine. If you are caught dealing or supplying (and that could just mean giving some to your mates) you could get 14 years in jail. It will also be an offence to bring Khat in and/or out of the country, so if you’ve been abroad you cannot bring it back to the UK with you.

Khat is an illegal substance in many other countries like the US and taking khat into the US could attract a heavy prison sentence.

So, Khat is pretty harmless, its use has gone on for thousands of years… and the UK government is banning it anyway. Why?

Because its use is fun! British (and many other) governments love to ban drugs that have a side-effect of euphoria. Look here for the proof! The British government (amongst many others) hate the idea of us enjoying ourselves. Alcohol, tobacco, refined sugar, and caffeine would be illegal if they didn’t have such a long tradition.

Unfortunately, voting for a different party won’t make much difference. The Lib Dems claim to want drugs to be decriminalised and the market regulated, but I think we all know by now that they are a bunch of liars. Maybe the Pirate Party UK would do something positive if they ever got the chance… but I can’t see them getting into government any time soon.

I hate hate. The government hates fun. So I hate the government. If you like fun, maybe you should start hating the government too?

Do not grow cannabis plants! Step-by-step guide to what you shouldn’t do!

20/06/2013

In most jurisdictions in the world, growing cannabis is illegal, and must not be attempted as cannabis is a terrible, addictive (??!! WTF??!) drug, and because its cultivation is a CRIME that can lead to fines or even imprisonment (one of the very few provable bad effects of cannabis).

OMG dat drugs gonna kill your kiddies!

OMG dat drugs gonna kill your kiddies!

So, how does one go about avoiding the cultivation of cannabis? I’d say step 1 is to make sure you don’t get any seeds in the first place. You found seeds in a baggie of dope that (cough) someone (cough) bought from somewhere. Don’t cultivate those seeds. And, if you were an evil crook who wanted to grow some dope, seeds found in a baggie would be best dumped anyway as you wouldn’t know their provenance.

Anyway, where should you avoid buying cannabis seeds? The London Seed Centre is a site best avoided, as they sell a wide range of viable, feminized seeds that would be only too easily germinated. Other evil dope-growers’ sites include: the Attitude Seed Bank, and Big Buddha Seeds. Avoid such sites like the plague. Don’t buy anything from them, even those funky “Legalize Marijuana!” buttons.

This might be a good time to bring up the thorny issue of legal jurisdiction. For instance, in the UK it’s legal to buy, sell and own cannabis seeds, so long as you don’t have any plans to plant them. So in the UK it’s okay to buy seeds so long as you don’t do any silly germination stuff (but remember: the NSA knows everything you do online, probably before you even think about it – so don’t plant the damn things, damn you!! In other countries the law may be different, mere possession of seeds may be illegal, so check out your local laws before you do anything stooo-pid!

There’s a nice site out there called growweedeasy.com. They sorta approach the whole thing from the point of view of an insane criminal who actually wants go become a wild-eyed, sex-crazed dope addict. But the site’s pretty simple to understand.

Basically, if you fail to avoid obtaining seeds, do not attempt to germinate them. Evil dope-growing criminals use 2 methods of germination – they can put the seeds in a glass of water, or they can put the seeds between 2 wet sheets of kitchen or toilet paper. If they use the wet paper version, they take care to not allow the paper to dry out. If this evil act of germination succeeds, the criminal will notice the seed has shot out a little root-growth. Then they will put the seed, root downwards, in a pot of compost or other growing medium. The seed will continue to develop, a little baby plant will emerge, the criminal will look after it (watering, feeding with certain fertilizers – there are lots of sites out there that recommend plant food to these criminals; as the plant gets bigger and its roots start to get too big, the crook will repot to larger containers; eventually they will switch to a “flowering” stage (these flowers or “buds” are what the addict craves – check out growweedeasily.com or other such fiendish sites for details of how they do it – and therefore what you should avoid doing!) and finally, if you have failed to be a good law-abiding citizen, you’ll be left with a load of evil, addictive, deadly, immoral marijuana!

Time has meant I haven’t been able to spell out each step to avoid. But there are plenty of sites on the web that go into shocking detail how the evil ones produce their foul weed! So, all I can say is:remember: drugs are bad, m’kay! So Just Say Now! Um, I meant “No”… shee-it, this is difficult…

PS: in the UK, if the police bust your gaff and find a few plants in a closet or something, it’s very unlikely they’ll do you for it. They’ll probably confiscate the plants (and smoke ’em when they come off duty, those immoral pigs!) and give you a caution. Not that that’s an excuse to involve yourself in this sordid world. Just a heads-up, yeah?

Streets of London Redux

06/03/2013

Parental Advisory - Explicit Shit!

(You have been warned!!)

Have you seen the old man who walks the streets of London
Lies in a doorway to kip when he is tired?
And have you seen the old man who walked the streets of London
Til kids with lighter fluid set the cunt on fire?

And have you seen the young girls who work the streets of London
Selling a piece of ass for a ten quid wrap of smack?
Have you seen the young girls who work the streets of London
Who’ll suck a dealer’s cock for a poxy pipe of crack?

So how can you tell me you’re lonely
And that for you the sun don’t shine?
Let me take you by the hand and lead you through the streets of London
I’ll show you something you’ll never understand.
Let me take you by the hand and drag you through the streets of London
I’ll show you something that’ll make you fucking sick!

Lyrics by Martin X
With apologies to Ralph McTell
and a nod to the Anti-Nowhere League
