Really seems like it's all become so carefully curated and commoditized that the personality and rough edges and accidents that made any of it noteworthy have been hewn away. American culture is populated by what might as well be walking, talking avatars designed solely to billboard for Disney and Nestle and a few big corporate interests. But, wtf do I know. Maybe I'm just too old for this shit.

Of course not. Rich people are fucking weasels. How do you think they get rich? They weasel the system. They weasel the profits of other people's productivity. They leave death and chaos in their wake. They lie, cheat, steal and rewrite the rules to suit them.

That pale red soil looks nitrogen poor and alkaline. Needs compost or fertilizer worked in early. Corn is a heavy feeder. Mulch helps, too. Once pollen is up it's probably too late to amend. Every time you grow something is an opportunity to do it better next time, though. Don't be disheartened.

You can use a balanced fertilizer (same number across NPK values, like 10-10-10) if that's what you have. If you were buying something, I'd go with like a 6-3-3, or similar. Ideally, an organic fortified with ammonium sulphate (if my guess about your soil being alkaline is correct). There's quite a few kiln dried manure products made this way. Might ask at a local turf supply shop. They're gaining popularity and shops like that have large bags at good prices. Organic inputs tend to have micronutrients and supply what the soil bacteria need to improve the soil over time. They're like concentrated compost, in a sense. Problem with compost is you need a lot of it, by comparison, but it's better for soil health most of the time.

Spacing is pretty important, too. You want corn spaced about a foot apart.

I tried to attach a photo of some corn I grew last year... will see if that works.
2023 - 6 foot+ corn stalks a few weeks before harvest

Yeah, fresh manure can be pretty hot/high in free ammonia. If you can mix it in yearly piles with leaf litter and shredded garden clippings, and then use last years pile it's pretty safe. But, you don't know how rich it is without experimenting. Mixing some aged stuff into planting areas like 6 weeks ahead of planting and then side dressing a couple times over the grow season is what I've heard others do, but I haven't tried raw inputs like that myself. Not sure how much and all that.
Corn does need a fair bit of nitrogen to grow well, though. That much I'm sure about.

If any of those "freely provided resources" can identify you, they're gonna tell hr about it, who will then find a way to fire you before your problems become their problems. That's the "early intervention" corporations are paying those services to provide.

They're not a political party. There's no actionable platform, no leadership, no direction. It's not possible to band together around things that they're against and still get things done. Cry all day about it, but any adult knows you can't turn back the clock.

To lead you have to have a way forward. Republicans haven't been able to figure this out for decades because they aren't a cohesive group. They're a backwards coalition of bastards and need to be divided into their corners under dunce caps until they can coalesce into separate parties under actionable terms.

That's payment for a second piece of pastry. Failure to complete the transaction will result in your status being marked contemptible by the Crow Commerce Coalition. Appropriate sanctions and penalties will apply. They're gonna follow you home, tell their friends and track your vehicle. They'll probably harass your kids. Crow clan ain't nothing to fuck with.

A layer of hell unto themselves. Punishments contravening multiple human rights conventions that people pay for the privilege of being subjected to just so they can get somewhere, be dissatisfied with it and be forced to do it all again to get back home.

Have noticed that, too. Most haven't been consistent or repeatable enough to report, but these seemed like they were. Hopefully, Ernest has time to take a look at them soon enough.

Yeah. It started yesterday for me.
Read something, I think, on another thread about Ernest, the admin, being away with family for the holiday. Might be somewhat limited functionality for a little bit. But, he's been pretty on top of things over the last few months. I'm sure he'll get it sorted out when he gets back.

Hoarding wealth in greater quantities than you could ever use in order to have power over others desperate to just survive is abusive to start with. They're probably exposed to other people with all variants of abusive tendencies and trained to believe they are better than and deserving of the suffering of others. Being raised in that environment will definitely encourage a much higher proportion of other abusive behaviors.

We're on the vertical part of the graph now. CO2 concentrations for the last 800k years. We're fully 25% over the maximum free CO2 over that period. Investments in extraction are still accelerating. Atmospheric methane, while shorter lived, is at the highest we've ever seen.

Climate averages are based on 30 year moving averages, generally. But there's every reason to believe we're into the hockey stick now. You can't simply put away atmospheric carbon that took geologic processes millions of years to sequester and we're not even slowing down. Even while regenerable sources take up a larger proportion of power generation, we're not drawing down the bad sources. We're just increasing our capacity for power consumption.

They know these games sell systems. This and another recent headline about PS+ titles being Sony exclusives costing the company amount or whatever....
They know a huge part of why these projects are worth the cost is outside of sales of that game and as a mechanism to maintain market dominance.

A church that believes in drinking blood as a part of their sacrament calling civilian deaths a 'harvest' is sure an interesting look.
I mean the IDF is fucked and the situation they've caused in Gaza is a humanitarian catastrophe. But, this feels like he's whining that someone else's blood god is stealing all the blood.

I haven't found any good resources even in urban areas. There's just not much there for older NDs. Everything is geared towards children. Also, think it's very unknown how much more exhausting masking gets as you get older. It's not something you just get better at, it still takes a lot of effort and as you age and energy levels drop it becomes more and more unsustainable.

Pretty sure the first minds to be controlled by generative AI work on the floor at the stock exchange.

YSK: To prevent mashed potatoes from being gummy, boil the potatoes whole.

When a potato cooks, the starches contained in each cell are released as the cell walls break down. These starches absorb the potato’s internal moisture and swell and soften. These two processes are what transform a raw, hard potato into a cooked, softer potato fit for mashing....

Can't even tell they're in there by the time they're done. Plus, the skin has more protein and nutrients than the rest of the potato. All the stuff that's good for you is in the skin. Whole point of this recipe is you can eat them without knowing they're even there.

He's got no assets to seize (already seized the western assets he could) and his diplomats are a fucking liability snapping photos of our lawmakers with hookers and drugs.

His threats sound more like favors. It's like he's asking countries to take Russian assets and offering free blowies along with.
