I write for myself and I'll say anything I damn well please Transcripts follow. (Source: Dexter; Image above, via NME.) Transcript December 2, 1996 Green Day P.O. Box 710 Berkeley, Ca 94701-0710Re: InsomniacTo whom it may concern:I am a parent, and I am very disturbed by the cassette tape my 8 year old son was listening to. His 60 year old grandmother bought it for him as a birthday present and was totally unaware of its explicit content. Alternate Sleep Cycles Most people only think that there is one way to sleep: Go to sleep at night for 6-8 hours, wake up in the morning, stay awake for 16-18 hours and then repeat. Actually, that is called a monophasic sleep cycle, which is only 1 of 5 major sleep cycles that have been used successfully throughout history. The other 4 are considered polyphasic sleep cycles due to the multiple number of naps they require each day. How is this possible? How is this healthy? Well the most important of every sleep cycle is the Stage 4 REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep, which has been shown to provide the benefits of sleep to the brain above all other stages of sleep. This way, you still get the benefits of 8 hours of sleep without wasting all of the time it takes to get to REM cycles, resulting in a much more efficient sleep cycle. Uberman Cycle: 20 to 30 minute naps every 4 hours, resulting in 6 naps each day. Everyman Cycle: One longer “core” nap that is supplemented with several 20-30 minute naps. Dymaxion Cycle:
Engineering ToolBox Paris Underground The Bunker It's pretty clear how you get in there, but it's also pretty comical: headfirst with your partner pushing your legs through. Again there's a different tunnel architecture. We're supposedly underneath a high school. One has a lot of wall mounted electrical conduit boxes - makes me think this was a communications bunker. Stephane is pointing to a fissure in the wall. It's a sideways crawl up and then down. New Tunnels? Stephane smiles at me. We are true explorers now. Every now and then there are little offshoots that go for 20 or 30 feet before coming to a dead end. As our mapmakers continue I look to Emmanuel for guidance. Stephane is so proud of his newfound mapping ground. Even these guys have their limits. The Real Catacombs There aren't a lot of rest stops so when this one presents itself we sit down. I bid adieu to my fellow cataphiles Stephane and Jean Baptiste. We zig zag for a while then follow some ancient stone stairs down to another level. "Later."
Shroomery - Magic Mushrooms: Which mushrooms grow wild in my area? Panaeolus subbalteatus (know as subbs by some people) is by far the most widely distributed psychoactive mushroom in the United States (if not the world). Although this mushroom is typically ranked as "weakly potent" to "moderately potent," it's all that some people will be able to find. This guide contains a very large amount of pictures of Panaeolus subbalteatus and it's most common, inactive, look-a-like Panaeolina foenisecii. First I will start off by explaining the best places and times of year to find these mushrooms. Habitat. Season and when to hunt. Look-a-likes / Description These mushrooms (subbs) tend to be a bit difficult to identify because there are many member of the Panaeolus and Panaeolina genera which look very similar to them. The easiest being the stem. Here are some pictures to illustrate some of the things I just discussed: Left to right these arrows point out the following (Photo by: Gumby) 1.

Everyman Sleep Most recent update, 2010: Everyman, along with other types of polyphasic sleep, has accumulated quite a body of information since this article was written. I myself have been on the Everyman 3 schedule for over four years now. Updated details, instructions, and even a book discussing polyphasic sleep adaptation can all be found at Everyman is another type of polyphasic sleep schedule that grew out of the experiments I first wrote about in 2000 under Uberman's Sleep Schedule. How the Everyman Schedule was born The "Uberman" schedule, which was the first polyphasic schedule I experimented with, is very cool, but also really hard to adjust to. Right about the time I was experimenting to determine the validity of the above sentence, people began howling at me about how unfair it was that only hermits and supervillians could ever have both the character and the kind of life-schedule that accomodated the Uberman schedule.
