Gear Review: Houdini HS Head by Brine Lacrosse
Company: Brine Lacrosse / Product: Houdini HS Head / Price: $79.99
The new Brine Houdini HS hearkens back to a day before 3″ throats existed in the college game, back to like 2005 when the Brine E3 was king of the field for both attackmen and midfielders. Created by former Duke standout attackman Ned Crotty–who is notorious for using the Brine Voyce in college and on Team USA–this new offense-driven head is the next in the deep, sudden offset design many attackmen love.
After using the Rabil X for a few weeks now, a head that I believe is carving out the future of head design, it was nice to see that some of the nation’s best players still value the things us attackmen looked for in a head 8 or more years ago. Let’s take a gander, shall we?
I think doing the Houdini HS review back to back with the Rabil X review is a perfect example of two new heads coming to market that, despite each being created by a high-powered offensive player, clearly reflect different values players have when it comes to the design of their head.
The Houdini has a throwback feel. Where the Rabil has a progressive offset that drops evenly over the bottom 2 inches of the head, the Houdini has a deep, sudden offset that drops off completely in the bottom half-inch of the head, right above the ball stop. It gives the ball that weighted feeling that allows attackmen in particular to really know where the ball sits in their pocket and feel confident throwing fakes and feeds.
As far as aesthetics go, this head comes in a matte finish which looks really dope on the right shaft. I had just received a brand new Epoch Dragonfly E30 shaft that also came in matte black, so for me the pairing was an obvious choice. I have an all white stick in the Rabil/Dragonfly E30 combo, now I have a matte black stick in the Houdini/Dragonfly E30 combo. The sidewall design features two sets of paired beams emanating from the front wall, splitting, and moving toward the back. And to top it all off, Brine garnished this head with the King logo they’ve featured on many of their 2013 products. All in all a very clean look, but in a design Brine has only done twice, first in the E3, then the Voyce, now the Houdini.
Every once in a while you come across a head that’s seemingly doing everything right, and then you just wish there were one more hole in the sidewall. This is that head for me, but when you consider Ned Crotty’s pocket in relationship to mine, I totally get why.
Crotty rocks a mid to high pocket that doubles up diamonds pretty much right in the middle of the sidewall. Mine doubles down in the lower third for a lower, carrying pocket. The hole I wish I had would be right between the 7th and 8th holes in the sidewall; the 7th I can’t pull my 3rd diamond down far enough, and the 8th pulls it way too far. However, if I was stringing this for Ned, I’d double up earlier and the holes would be right where they need to be for his pocket to bag out where he likes it.
I could use ONE more hole between the 7th and 8th!
I just have a hard time understanding why some heads have only 13 holes (Houdini HS) while some have 19 or more (Rabil X). If we’re not sacrificing structural integrity, why not just Sarah Palin and drill, baby drill?
This is a well thought out head in the stiffness department. It is super rigid at the bottom of the head, near the throat. Getting it to wiggle up at the scoop is actually pretty easy, but if you watch how the head bends, it wiggles to about halfway down the head and the bottom is totally still. I imagine this was an important engineering point because the scoop is also flat and wide to make ground balls as easy as possible. This is a shape the Houdini does NOT share with the Rabil X.
A nice flex when it hits the ground to help you with tough GBs.
This Houdini head is stiff when the ball is in your pocket, yet able to move with you when the ball hits the deck. This definitely isn’t a face-off head, but not because it isn’t stiff enough.
Contrary to popular belief, durability doesn’t have a lot to do with stiffness. They’re definitely correlated, but not directly. Reebok makes some of the stiffest heads on the market and (SPOILER ALERT) we have more broken Reebok heads at HQ than any other brand. Durability is about a head’s capacity to maintain its shape over a multiple seasons without warping or breaking. Although I haven’t exactly put the Houdini through the ringer yet, this head is beefy enough to give me a lot of confidence.
A head designed to take a beating from long poles? I’m in.
The specific area on this head that gives me confidence in its durability is the throat. A steep offset used to be a structural red flag in some heads. It was often where plastic broke or stringing holes popped open because companies were having a hard time making the throat stiff enough to counter the additional force a steep offset throat incurred. You can feel the strength of the sidewall design (at least at the bottom) pushing back against applied force. I think this head will go a long way for the attackman who takes care of his stick/pocket.
Usually this is where I have to dock points. The heads we get are often the newest and shiniest, which means they’re being marketed heavily and the price reflects it. Yeah, well the Houdini HS is $79.99.
At $79.99, this head is an excellent value for attackmen!
That puts this head well within the reach of the high school attackman trying to step his game up. If you’re having cradling issues, and you’re still using the head your friend gave you to try lacrosse, go to the store and give this one a try. I wouldn’t necessarily say that about heads upwards of $100 because why try something you know you can’t afford? PLUS you can stall balls on the sidewalls nicely, which I’d pay at least an extra $5 for!
This is a 10-year-old design concept but much improved and a whole lot prettier. Taking it out made me miss my couple seasons with an E3. This head is perfect for the attackman trying to put his stickwork together with his footwork because the steep offset eliminates some of the simpler cradling mistakes allowing us to focus on how we’re approaching our defenseman one on one.
Trying to work on my Matt Gibson moves before Vegas!
I think this head represents an important stepping stone every attackman should take. When I was in high school, every offensive player tried an E3 at least once. By the time I got to college, half of our attackmen had a Voyce in their bag. I think many of you are going to find this head a welcome addition to Brine’s 2013 line up, especially if you like heads with a matte finish.
Got some gear you wish we would review? Hit us up and let us know what you think we should review next.
East Coast Dyes: Clutch
The Brine Clutch is one of the most popular heads of all time and the list of great players that have used and do use it is endless. This head comes in an NHFS spec and an X spec. It features a long narrow throat with an aggressive flare and a pinched face shape. This head is ideal for midfielders and attackman. It has as many stringing holes as you could want and is very easy to string.

|Season 1||Number 23|
Houdini is the twenty-third episode of Lilo & Stitch: The Series . It aired on December 12, 2003.
Stitch and Pleakley are hired to put on a magic show at Myrtle’s midday birthday party. After their act is gruesome, Lilo secretly activates an experiment that makes things invisible in order to make the show a success. When this happens, Aunt Myrtle, a Hollywood producer, hires them to do their stunt on national television. However, when Houdini escapes and leaves Stitch invisible, Lilo tries to find both of them before she looks like a crook.Meanwhile, 625 finds experimental capsule 119 at the grocery store, mistaking it for capsule 611, but Gantubert takes full credit for trying to find Houdini. In the end, Houdini arrives just in time to make the disappearing beacon magic trick work. It is then revealed that he is a real wizard and he gets a magic show with Aunt Myrtle.
- Fudgee is Experiment 054. However, in his debut, his capsule was marked 119, most likely due to Jumba’s unkempt database.
- Homesterville stated that Gantu was looking at Fudgee’s capsule upside down (which Ruben had done beforehand). However, if you look closely, the units on the capsule did not look upside down. Either Homesterville is a hamster-like creature, since hamsters have poor eyesight, or Jumba mistakenly called 1 inverted.
- Moral: Do not trust other people’s work.
- This episode reveals that Gantu clearly has bad karma as he took full credit for the experimental capsule that Ruben actually found.
- This is one of three episodes in which Stitch’s fur becomes a different color and the other two are “Swapper” and “Bad”.
90,000 Racists, nerds and chocolate orgy lovers. Who and why joins the organization of the smartest people on the planet ?: People: From life: Lenta.ru
Today you can often hear about Mensa in the news, when it is reported that another child. This organization is usually represented as a kind of semi-closed club in which people with an off-scale IQ coefficient are members. But what is Mensa really, what does it do? “Lenta.ru” plunged into the history of the most open closed club in the world.
The history of Mensa began in 1946. Humanity came to its senses after the Second World War, but a new confrontation has already begun. Winston Churchill’s Fulton speech, delivered on March 5, 1946, lowered the iron curtain and made it clear that the main enemy of the “free world” is now its yesterday’s ally, the USSR.
In this nervous atmosphere in England, young biochemist Lancelot Ware and Australian-born barrister Roland Burrill formed the High IQ Club, which would later be renamed Mensu.Having met on the train on the way from Oxford to Godalming, the men talked about phrenology, popular since the beginning of the 19th century, a theory that connected human intellectual abilities with the structure of the skull. Now phrenology is officially recognized as a pseudoscience.
The original name of the organization was supposed to sound like Mensa – “mind” in Latin – but later Burrill and Ware settled on Mensa – “table” in the same Latin language. It meant a table at which the brightest minds of mankind would gather and share reflections.In addition, this table was supposed to also refer to the round table of the knights of King Arthur.
Initially, the organization was supposed to unite the smartest people regardless of religion and origin. The founding fathers of Mensa hoped that it would become a free platform where intellectuals could reflect on the nature of reason and advise on the most important issues to the representatives of governments and corporations who approached them. The official birthday of Mensa was October 1, 1946.
People who passed the IQ test better than 98 percent of competitors could get into Mensa.In other words, only two percent of the brightest minds of humanity could join the organization. This rule has remained unchanged today. However, two completely unexpected circumstances became clear rather quickly.
First of all, it became clear that people with high IQ levels do not necessarily come from the upper strata of society. Most of Mensa’s early members came from the working class, which seriously upset and angered Burrill. He, like many people of his era and status, was absolutely sure of the intellectual superiority of the aristocracy over the commoners.
At one of the meetings, Burrill proposed to exclude all blacks from Mensa. The proposal was met with deathly silence, after which the lawyer had to laugh it off, and he proposed to exclude all “green people with yellow stripes.”
Ware was more confused by the fact that the “intellectual giants” in the meetings were much more interested in solving puzzles than thinking about problems of the mind.
At the very early stage of Mensa’s existence, it became clear that a person with a high IQ could be anyone.It can be a nuclear physicist, or maybe a simple hard worker. Moreover, the IQ level, as it turned out, does not at all affect the interests of a person and his aspirations in life. A genius by test scores does not necessarily have to be a keen explorer penetrating the mysteries of the universe with a sharpened blade of reason.
All this remains unchanged today. Mensa proudly declares that people of all nationalities, social backgrounds and education are becoming its members. And even age, considering that the youngest “mensovtsy” were not even three years old.
However, governments and corporations were also in no hurry to seek advice from Mensa, and by the early 1950s she was a rather miserable sight. About 150 people became members of the society, and at meetings they mostly drank, solved puzzles and did not in any way resemble the knights of King Arthur from the intellect.
Burrill became increasingly disenchanted with the idea, and his behavior increasingly irritated the few members of the club. As a result, the founding father left his brainchild.But, having lost its founder, Mensa was replenished with a man to whom it will owe its fame, and possibly survival in general.
Victor Serebryakoff, as is clear from the surname, a descendant of immigrants from Russia. True, he was not at all from a family of aristocrats who fled from the revolution, but rather the opposite. His grandfather, Esper Aleksandrovich Serebryakov, not only fought to change the established order in the Russian Empire, but even was a member of the “Narodnaya Volya”. Esper personally knew Andrei Zhelyabov, Sofya Perovskaya and Nikolai Kibalchich, who organized the assassination of Alexander II, and until the end of his days considered these radicals to be his idols.
After the assassination of the emperor, it became more and more difficult for the People’s Will to live in their homeland, and in 1883 Esper Serebryakov went abroad. There he wrote articles for the émigré anti-monarchist press, managed to command the Danube flotilla of the Bulgarian Principality and settled in Great Britain. In emigration, his son Vladimir was born – the father of Viktor Serebryakoff.
Victor, born in London in 1912, clearly inherited a powerful and active nature from his grandfather. During the Second World War, he served in the army, where he learned about his remarkable mental abilities thanks to IQ tests, which were required to pass recruits. After demobilization, Serebryakoff quickly made a career in the timber trade, where he was mainly involved in the introduction of the latest technologies. He joined Mensu in 1949, when the organization had only a few dozen members, and its future was more than vague.

Since the beginning of the 50s, Serebryakoff began to actively develop Mensu. It was thanks to his efforts that programs for gifted children appeared, which are still in effect.A respectable British businessman with Russian roots traveled all over the world promoting the “club of the smartest” and became the founder of the American branch of Mensa, which is the largest today.
In other words, it was Viktor Serebryakoff who created a large international organization with tens of thousands of members from an amorphous heap of people with a high IQ, who did not understand why they gathered.
And the grandson of the People’s Will became famous for having compiled several popular books of puzzles, so beloved by the mensovites. Some of them were published in Russia as well.
In fact, Mensa’s tasks are defined in its charter, and they can be summarized as researching human intelligence, creating educational programs for children and advising on any issues. Programs for the younger generation complement regular school education and should contribute to intellectual development. True, any significant success in this field is not widely reported. Mensa publishes intelligence research journals and has a research division.
However, the majority of members of the organization, like 75 years ago, perceive “Mensa” as a place of fun parties. The gatherings are more like a gathering of former classmates – drinking, dancing, board games and talent contests – and in no way reminiscent of a society meeting of the elite
There were, of course, those who decided to infiltrate the ranks of Mensa in order to study society. And they found among its members not only those who like to indulge in the innocent fun of “nerds”.
For example, the American comedian Jamie Loftus, who spent a year in society, revealed an ultra-right group in the American Mensa.Members of this community on their Facebook page talked, for example, about how lucky the black residents of the United States were that their ancestors fell into slavery, because now they do not live in the “African garbage dump.” After Loftus drew public attention to the circle, he was quickly shut down.
Sophie Gilbert, a Washingtonian journalist who joined the organization to write the article, said that Mensa’s meetings are most like a gathering of “socially unadapted people who get together to play board games and find someone to sleep with.”

In the Washington branch of Mensa, of which Gilbert became a member, she met “a man with blond curls, a beard and painted lips,” a man who “Clearly knew the codes for nuclear warheads,” and an ardent racist. In addition, she turned down insistent offers to participate in the “chocolate orgy”, whatever that means.
By the way, getting into the “club of the smartest” itself turned out to be not so difficult.There are many videos on YouTube on how to take IQ tests and get the points you need to join an organization. And the same Jamie Loftus claims that she passed the entrance test to the “Mensa” with a hangover from nothing to do.
Attempts to figure out why people join this strange club suggest that there are two main reasons – narcissism and the desire to avenge a childhood full of bullying to the universe. At least, to prove to yourself that the offensive nicknames “nerd” or “bespectacled” are not received in vain.The same Sophie Gilbert admitted that, having become a member of Mensa, she was filled with pride in her intelligence.

Psychiatrist Todd Grande of the University of Wilmington believes that narcissism is one of the main motivations for people to join Mensa. Membership does not give any special privileges, but the opportunity to put in a prominent place a mug with the logo of “the society of the smartest” is quite a weighty reward for many narcissistic individuals.
It should be added here that an overwhelming minority of intellectuals are striving to get into Mensa. For example, the largest American branch of the organization in the world has about 50 thousand members. At the same time, according to Mensa itself, there are up to six million people living in the United States alone who are able to pass the entrance test. And this despite the fact that all over the world there are only about 145 thousand active members of the organization.
Probably the most famous Mensa member is still Lisa Simpson from The Simpsons.The Springfield branch of the organization, surprisingly, reflects well the real state of affairs at Mensa.
In society, the most strange characters consist of the painted city. Liza is an intelligent, but unpopular girl of social liberal views at school. Headmaster Seymour Skiner is an outright loser, a Vietnam War veteran living under the total control of an oppressive mother. The comic book dealer, whose image also cannot be called a role model, is a classic obese geek.There you can also find Dr. Hibbert – quite a competent doctor, who, however, sometimes prone to eccentric and extremely cynical behavior, and Professor Frink, who, despite his really outstanding intellectual abilities, can be called a “mad scientist”.

However, Mensa also included real flesh and blood celebrities. Writer Isaac Asimov has long been a member of the organization and even served as its vice president.True, it was not easy to persuade the great science fiction writer for this honorary position. He was embarrassed by the same people – “proud of their brains and ready to gnaw their throats for their IQ level.”
For example, the famous porn actress Asia Carrera with an IQ level of 156 points also joined Mensu. Among the members of the club is the creator of the Minecraft game Markus Persson.
One of the most famous criminals in Britain also got into the ranks of Mensa. Alfred George Hinds, who robbed a £ 90,000 jewelry store in 1953, was convicted, and after the verdict disappeared from Nottingham prison and went into hiding for eight months.The press immediately dubbed him “Houdini from the underworld”
During his eight months on the run, he managed to make a career in the construction business, and after being detained, he ran twice more. After the third attempt and capture, the indefatigable fugitive still calmed down and sat through the term. Released in 1964, Hinds wrote a best-selling book about his escape and his relationship with the English legal system. Later, already a national celebrity, he joined the “Mensu” and even was the secretary of the organization’s branch in the Channel Islands.The stolen money, by the way, was never found, and many researchers believe that Hinds later lived on it.
However, the main thing that Mensa managed to show is that the IQ level is, of course, a very important thing, but in reality it has little effect on life. This cannot be found in the sources of the organization itself, but the evidence is the most serious.
An experiment begun back in the 1920s by Stanford University psychology professor Lewis Theremin revealed interesting properties of intelligence.Theremin selected fifteen hundred children and adolescents with an IQ level of 140 points and above into a special group called “Termites”. Then he and his colleagues began to track and guide the development of his charges, recording their successes and failures.
At the beginning of the study, the psychologist was convinced that the level of intelligence is the most important factor affecting the quality of life and human accomplishments, and his “termites” will become the best people not only in the United States, but also on the planet. Theremin handed out bravura interviews, promising to soon almost bring out a new breed of American geniuses
However, 30 years later it turned out that “the smartest children of America” for the most part turned into quite ordinary adults.Yes, quite talented writers and scientists appeared among them, some “termites” made successful careers in business and civil service, but no one became a world-class star, received the Nobel Prize and did not cover himself with immortal fame in other fields.
In general, their lives could be called more successful than those of people with “normal” IQ levels, but no revolution happened. Moreover, the selection of “termites” was carried out mainly from wealthy families of the upper and middle classes.Among them there were almost no Jews, very few blacks and Hispanics, and there were no Asians at all. It can be said that most of the “Theremin children” would have achieved success in life anyway thanks to the excellent starting conditions.
The most prominent of Theremin’s wards was probably Jess Oppenheimer – writer, director and producer, creator of the cult American television series of the 1950s, I Love Lucy.
In addition, two future Nobel laureates – physicists William Shockley and Luis Alvarez – were not included in the selection of “termites”.They missed those IQ scores. Before his death in 1956, Lewis Theremin admitted that IQ and success in life, if connected, are insignificant and non-obvious.
The story of Mensa looks like the plot of an absurd novel. The organization was born out of a train conversation about racist pseudoscience a year after the victory over Nazism. In the ranks of “Mensa” were and are really outstanding people from various fields of activity, but the bulk of the members are a bunch of geeks who make up for joint drinking and solving puzzles.
Today almost everyone can join this strange community, but there are not so many who wish, even among intellectuals. However, one can perceive “Mensa” and as a monument to human idealism, which has brought itself to the point of absurdity.
However, who knows, maybe Mensa’s victories are still ahead, and one day people will really come out of its ranks who will create a better future for all mankind. May be. Or maybe not. 90 017 90 000 60 days without food. Or maybe forever ?: olabyoric – LiveJournal
Dear readers, I am starting a report about a record fasting lasting 60 days. Information is updated every day at any time of the day . 90,023 0th 85 kg; / 1st 83 kg; / 2nd 82.3 kg, / 3rd 81.5 kg, / 4th 80.9 kg, / 5th 80.4 kg, / 6th 79.9, / 7th 79.4 kg, / 8th 79.2 kg, / 9 -th 79.1, / 10th 78.9, // 11th 78.9, / 12th 78.5, / 13th 78.1, / 14th 78.1, / 15th 77.4 / 16th 77.3, / 17th 77.7 / 18th 76.9 / 19th 77 / 20th 76.6 / 21st 75.7 /
I added “Maybe forever?”, Because I began to receive such information. While I will not categorically state, let’s see what happens.
I already went hungry twice: in 2015 and in 2016. The first fasting lasted 13 days, of which 10 days without food and the last 3 without food and water. Fasting always begins unexpectedly. Every day from morning to evening, starting from February 1, 2013, I always eat and drink only what the Holy Apostles allowed. And in the morning, on the day of the beginning of the fast, I was suddenly forbidden to eat, or eat and drink. So fasting begins and it is canceled also unexpectedly. At some point, I am allowed to eat and drink water or any other liquid.The first fast is always unknown. I knew almost nothing of what to do and what not. I had to learn on the go. When I stopped eating, my stomach ceased to function. He was not getting “fuel” and he had nothing to digest. The bulk of the food was digested and excreted during bowel movements. But in the intestines there were residues of feces that were not completely removed, because I stopped drinking water. This resulted in extremely unpleasant sensations in the mouth and in the formation of a dark coating with a characteristic aftertaste on the tongue.Especially these sensations intensified when I stopped drinking water. There was a sharp dehydration of the body and the intestines were no longer able to independently get rid of the remnants of feces. I missed this moment and subsequently had big problems in the digestive system. And everything was solved simply, it was necessary to do a cleansing enema and the intestines would become absolutely clean. In the second fast, I took this into account, and everything went without complications. The second fasting in 2016 without food and water lasted 7 days. I must note that any fasting is most difficult at the very beginning, the first 2-3 days.Then it gets easier. By experience, I found out that fasting without food is much easier than without water. Both fasting was accompanied by significant weight loss, from 0.5 to 2 kg per day. Both times I lost 14 kg. Of course I felt much better than being overweight. Only by the end of the fast I felt severe weakness, I was rocked and thrown to the side as I walked. However, he never fell.
And now, as always unexpectedly, the Holy Apostles “dumbfounded” me with the news. Late in the evening of May 11, I was told that the longest fasting begins in the morning, 60 days without food at all.I had received such information before, but did not think it was serious. Now I wondered if I could withstand such a test, because it is much more than 13 days. But if the Holy Apostles give me such a task, then they are sure that I can fulfill it. But, to be honest, I can hardly imagine it. This morning on 05/12/2018 I weighed in, it turned out to be exactly 85 kg, and began to complete the task. It is now 8 pm, I didn’t eat all day, I drank a little water, nothing else. I prepare tap water myself, boil it in a thermo-pot and cool it in the refrigerator.It turns out better than the purchased one. Thanks to the internal Teflon coating of the thermopot, all dirt and the smell of bleach is deposited on its walls. The water becomes almost springy. It’s good that I was allowed to drink, because without water such a test is simply unthinkable, it can only if there are 10-15 days, but not all 60. So, I invite those who wish to walk with me for 60 days without food. How everything will happen, I will write here with all the details. I think it will be interesting.
1st day , 12.05.2018 morning – weight 85.0 kg, at the end of the day there was an aggravation of the digestive system, a very sharp unpleasant taste appeared in the mouth. It was saved that I was allowed to slightly sweeten my drinking water. Otherwise, it would have been very bad, but so bearable … In the morning I checked my blood pressure: 220-105, pulse 63. From the pressure I drank 1 tablet of Cordipin retard 20 mg. My hypertension is hereditary and so far unkillable. Sugar 7.1, I drank 1 tablet of Gluconorm Plus 2.5 mg + 500 mg. Type 2 diabetes is also hereditary.
2nd day , 13.05.2018, morning – weight 83.0 kg, minus exactly 2 kg. Pressure 195-115, pulse 76. I did not drink any pills, I can do it with this pressure, I do not advise others. Sugar 7.8. Despite the fact that he hadn’t eaten anything over the past day, the sugar still went up due to stress. Didn’t drink the pill. The pancreas has to deal with this on its own. Today I looked on the Internet for information about the facts of starvation. I have never been interested before. I was surprised, it turns out that science has proven that a person can withstand a maximum of 60 days without food, but with water.After that, death. And I was wondering where the 60 days came from. It turned out on Olympus to know what is happening on Earth. Of course, I never doubted it. The Holy Apostles know everything about us … Something tells me that the next fasting I will have 150 days. And in the long term, without food at all, but with water. Then there will be a test in an atmosphere without oxygen. But this is no longer on Earth … Today, the taste in the mouth is slightly sour. This is better than very bitter … Almost 22:00. The second day ends. It is better not to think how much is still ahead, otherwise it will be dumbfounded… While the flight is normal, even better than expectations. Sometimes all sorts of goodies only come to mind, but I immediately reject it with indignation. It’s good that they were allowed to drink water. It really saves. A drop of Altai honey and a mug of warm boiled water are my food for the whole day. And how tasty and satisfying it seems. I didn’t even guess before. The last time I went hungry was no food or water. During the day I go hiking for 2 km. I am not strong enough, I can hardly move my legs. But this is not due to exhaustion, it is still early, these are the consequences of exacerbations of various diseases.Hopefully it will pass soon.
3rd day , 05/14/2018, morning, weight 82.3 kg. Minus 0.7 kg, sharply less than yesterday. Probably the water that I drink is affecting. The pressure jumps, 210-105, pulse 60. I drank 0.5 tablets of Cordipin retard. But sugar dropped to 6.2, as I expected. I don’t feel like eating, I even got a feeling of satiety. I think this was done by the Holy Apostles so that I would not suffer from hunger. Everything would be fine, but the state of health is unimportant, pulls into sleep, I sleep a lot, it’s easier to endure fasting and exacerbations.And this is even better, because there is nothing to keep yourself busy. Now there is a lot of free time and there is nowhere to put it. No need to go to the store and buy groceries, no need to cook, eat, wash dishes, take out the trash. Money is safe, the body is cleared of dirt. I will fly soon … Flights are canceled for now. In the morning I could hardly crawl. Exacerbations of 5 systems simultaneously covered me: digestive (PVS), genitourinary (MPS), musculoskeletal (ODS), olfactory (OS) and respiratory (DS). I “flew” in bed for an hour and a half and somehow felt better.I went for a walk, though today I only mastered 1 km. Yesterday it was 2 km and all the way I shuffled on the asphalt. And this is a sign of Alzheimer’s disease. I made a diagnosis at home, indeed it is, and in phase c2 (according to my classification, this is the penultimate phase of a chronic disease). That’s why I could hardly drag my legs, and my head was like a plague. About 2-3 years ago, my Apostles introduced me artificially into a chronic state of Alzheimer’s disease. This was done so that I felt for myself what these patients feel.As always, everything happened unexpectedly. I was at home, suddenly something clicked in my head and I completely disconnected from the outside world. There is a complete emptiness in my head, I stopped thinking about who I am, what my name is, what country I live in, what year is outside the window, what day is today, etc. Instantly I turned into a complete moron, I did not understand anything, I did not know anything and did not remembered. The only connection with the outside world was the wife sitting next to me. I saw her and understood that she was my wife, but who she was, what her name was, I did not remember that.This state lasted probably 10-15 minutes. And just as suddenly they brought me back. It’s scary to remember, but I know perfectly well the condition of Alzheimer’s patients. This is a completely erased memory of the past, present and future. The person really becomes a fat vegetable. I have been put into states of various diseases many times. All this was done so that I knew what the patients were experiencing at the same time. Another feature of my training as a healer, as an expert in alternative medicine, is the ability to recover from all diseases that occur on Earth and in Space.Firstly, this is an invaluable experience in the knowledge of diseases, and secondly, it is the possibility of acquiring immunity for the future. Such tests would be for our doctors, it would be the best study. As the saying goes, knowledge on one’s own “skin” … So, if yesterday I shuffled my feet all the way, today it was much better, maybe a dozen or two shuffling. This means that my Alzheimer’s has started to decline and will soon disappear completely. By the way, I can treat this incurable disease, although this is not a simple and long-term affair. But for me everything happens quickly, because I need to get through thousands, and maybe tens of thousands of diseases as quickly as possible.Therefore, it takes me from several days to several weeks to completely recover from various diagnoses.
4th day , 05/15/2018, morning, weight 81.5 kg. Minus 0.8 kg per day, and only minus 3.5 kg in 3 days. Pressure 195-100, pulse 67. Sugar 6.1. I didn’t drink any pills. With such pressure, the Holy Apostles do not allow me to take medicine. This fasting is clearly not like the previous ones 2. The feeling of hunger is completely absent, which pleases. And I drink very little, a maximum of 0.5 liters per day. I am already beginning to believe that they have finally decided to excommunicate me from gluttony.And I think that this is a great blessing for any person. But this benefit is not given simply, it must be earned. This is impossible without the help and blessing of our heavenly patrons. A person has to prepare for this for a long time, especially mentally … Yesterday evening I received an application from a sick 30-year-old man. I saw on the medical forum his request for help. Having exhausted all the possibilities of official medicine, he turned to healers. Here is a link to his posts: http://forumjizni.ru/showthread.php?t=17210 I wrote to him and now I am treating him.In this regard, I would like to tell you more about the secrets of my profession. Late yesterday evening, I received consent for treatment and began to diagnose. I don’t know about other healers, most likely the same as me, but I need to check one very important parameter before starting treatment, and before receiving any information. I call it “Matrix Code”. It must be constantly updated, if it is outdated, it becomes invalid and it is impossible to obtain reliable information. Of course, I checked the code and proceeded to diagnose it.But then something happened that rarely, but happens. Literally at the very beginning of the diagnosis, my code lost its relevance. But I didn’t know it and started working. In general, I killed a couple of hours of time and received a huge number of seemingly plausible diagnoses. Usually, it takes me a maximum of half an hour to diagnose, but here it is much more. Affected by fatigue and poor health, and I made a mistake about which I am now talking about. I fixed it a little later, of course. I just checked the “Matrix Code” again and realized that everything needed to be redone.And the code itself is not simple, it consists of a set of numbers and letters of the ancient Slavic initial letter, and it also takes time to spend on it. I wrote this so that uninitiated readers understand what difficulties healers have to face in their work, where all kinds of surprises and tricks lie in wait at every step. It is impossible to protect yourself from this, but the error is easy to detect if you double-check the result after an hour and a half.
5th day , 05/16/2018, morning, weight 80.9 kg. Minus 0.6 kg per day, and only minus 4.1 kg in 4 days.Pressure 190-95, pulse 60. Sugar 5.6. I didn’t drink any pills. I drink warm water with lemon and a drop of honey, 1 liter per day. Starvation begins to affect, the pressure slowly decreases, and the sugar generally returned to normal. Since the beginning of the fast I haven’t taken any pills. I consider it useful for all diabetics and hypertensive patients to periodically starve with water for at least 5-10 days. And repeat this procedure every 3 months. I am sure the result will be positive. Until recently, I had a blood pressure of 270 and a sugar of 22. Here is information about this: http: // forumjizni.ru / showpost.php? p = 412862 & postcount = 19 I have no doubt that diabetes is over completely, and I will be able to defeat hypertension in 3 months.
6th day , 05/17/2018, morning, weight 80.4 kg, minus 0.5 kg, probably in the future the indicator of daily weight loss will not decrease. Pressure 190-95, pulse 60. Sugar 5.7. I didn’t drink any pills. Late last night there was a strong aggravation of all 8 systems, which is probably why the sugar rose slightly. I continue to drink warm hot water with lemon sweetened with honey, about 1 liter per day.If someone thinks that they can secretly gorge themselves when no one sees, then they have to disappoint him. Maybe this is possible, but not in my case. For several years now, any physical activity, even jogging, has been strictly forbidden to me. I can not lose weight in the sauna and in any other way, except for refusing food. Lifting and carrying weights over 10 kg is also contraindicated. This is due to severe illnesses and a strong weakening of all body systems. Only walking is allowed, not fast.
7th day , 05/18/2018, morning, weight 79.9 kg, minus 0.5 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 5.1 kg for 6 days, on average 0.85 kg / day. Pressure 185-90, pulse 60. Sugar 5.8. I do not drink pills for the 4th day in a row. Finally I crossed the 80 kg line. This makes me happy. Another good thing is that the pressure has ceased to rise. This is a good signal. Yesterday I ran into one problem, as I drank water with honey, albeit in micro doses, but my mouth became unbearably sweet. It’s just that it is also impossible to drink water without anything constantly.Sometimes I drink water with a slice of lemon, but it dries in my mouth. I found a substitute for a change, a brine diluted with water from canned olives. It helped a lot. You can also use a weak pickle from canned cucumbers, better homemade. For a long time I tried to find out from the Holy Apostles what else to drink, it turned out only kampotas and pickles from fruits and vegetables, better prepared at home and in no case chopped, only whole. Do not drink fruit or vegetable juices. Probably in order not to drink the pulp with the liquid.Otherwise, it will be considered an inferior hunger strike. All of these tricks are very helpful in surviving the test of fasting without food.
8th day , 05/19/2018, morning, weight 79.4 kg, minus 0.5 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 5.6 kg for 7 days, on average 0.8 kg / day. Pressure 200-90, pulse 60. Sugar 5.9. I do not drink pills for the 5th day in a row. The pressure has risen because since yesterday I have been experiencing the most severe exacerbation of 5 systems. At the same time, the cardiovascular system is not affected by the exacerbation, so he did not drink the pill.In the evening I cooked myself a compote from rowan berries and gooseberries. For 3 liters, added 3 teaspoons of sugar and a slice of lemon. Now I also drink compote. Water and honey are resting. Already 7 days without a crumb in my mouth, but it feels like I’m fed up. The feeling of hunger is completely absent. Perhaps because before starvation I was overweight – 85 kg with a height of 168 cm. Sometimes a keen desire to eat something tasty rolls over, but it immediately leaves itself or I chase it away. So far, everything is working out. I want to warn those who are going to starve for the first time.If you starve for a long time without taking any food and drink only water, brine, compote, that is, any liquid without the inclusion of solid particles of vegetables and fruits, you will soon stop defecating, because the stomach will have nothing to digest. But the intestines are not able to independently push out the remnants of feces. Therefore, you need to help him, 2-3 days after the last bowel movement, do a deep enema, perhaps more than one. By doing this, you will flush the intestines from the remains of feces and save yourself from extremely unpleasant and even dangerous sensations.If feces remain in the intestines, a sharp unpleasant taste and smell will appear in the mouth, and a thick brown plaque on the tongue, which can only be removed with a hard toothbrush. But this is not the worst thing. The feces remaining in the intestines will thicken to a state of solid mass and upon exiting starvation, when you start eating, you will surely have the urge to defecate and this solid lump of thickened feces can tear your anus mucosa when you leave until cracks and bleeding. This is especially true in the case of dry fasting, with a sharp dehydration of the body.Therefore, for reassurance, it is imperative to do enemas. This does not apply to those who starve with the use of thick juices, which are high in fiber. With such fasting, defecation does not stop, the stomach continues to work and when you exit fasting, there will be no such problems.
9th day , 05/20/2018, morning, weight 79.2 kg, minus 0.2 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 5.8 kg for 8 days, on average 0.7 kg / day. Pressure 225-95, pulse 55. Sugar 5.4. I drank half a tablet of cordipin.For 2 days in a row, I was attacked by the Dark Forces, specifically the Devil and the Goddess Antiworld. They cannot kill me, like Yuri Longo https://www.kp.ru/daily/23662/50181/, but they can do harm. Which they did. I realized this when I began to receive misinformation while treating patients. It is very difficult to detect a negative impact if it is done covertly (and not explicitly, as with an energy impact). It is even more difficult to determine the source of the impact. It is also necessary to find measures of protection against this impact, if it happened for the first time.I had to tinker with this for 2 whole days. My nerves beat me thoroughly, as a result, the pressure rose, I made mistakes in the diagnosis of patients, I had to redo it several times, because the attacks were successive one after another and from different sources. Now everything is over and I hope forever. If the Dark Forces do not come up with something new … Miracles began with the weight – minus only 200 grams per day. In previous fasting, this was not the case, at least 0.5 kg. This fasting follows a different scenario.Weight loss is clearly inhibited. Probably they really prepare me for the future life without food at all. I started drinking more, yesterday I drank about 2 liters. I noticed that the most enjoyable drink is the pickle made from canned olives. It quenches thirst for a long time, has no side effects, such as dry mouth, bitterness and more. Therefore, the thought came, what if you cook the same one yourself. Immediately I thought of the Virgin Mary. I used to often turn to her help when I was preparing my own food. It was always tasty and nutritious.I take the frame and start asking Masha what, when and how much to put in from the food, how long to cook. It always worked out great. I did the same this time. Masha dictated to me the recipe “ Drink of the Gods “. For 3 liters of water, 3 teaspoons of salt and sugar, 3 bay leaves, 3 canned olives or sardines and 15 black peppercorns. Boil all this over low heat for 30 minutes and then throw a slice of lemon into the solution. You can drink it hot. It turned out to be surprisingly tasty and nutritious.Similar to chicken broth, but without fat, chicken and onions. It quenches thirst well for a long time and has no side effects. The taste is soft and pleasant. Of course, this is a recommendation primarily for those who are hungry with water. Perhaps other starving people will not like him, everyone is free to decide for himself what to drink. In general, the question of what to drink during fasting turned out to be a problem. I have already tried a dozen of all kinds of liquids, none of them worked, it is impossible to drink for a long time, it gets boring, rejection begins. Now I seem to have found my drink it is “ Drink of the Gods “.If anything, then you can alternate with others. You can experiment with this drink, gradually adding whoever is missing something – acid, sweetness, bitterness, etc.
10th day , 05/21/2018, morning, weight 79.1 kg, minus 0.1 kg, in total from the beginning fasting minus 5.9 kg for 9 days, on average 0.65 kg / day. Pressure 190-95, pulse 60. Sugar 5.9. I didn’t drink any pills. Diagnostics showed that I need to drink a trace element nickel (Ni). I went to the Internet, it turned out that it does not exist separately, and I had no doubts.I started looking for a set of vitamins that would suit me best, and of course with nickel. Found Vitrum spectrum with iron for children from 2 years old. It was last night. Before the pharmacy was closed, there was absolutely nothing left, so I quickly packed up and rushed to get a vitamin. On the way I almost flew, I was even surprised, my gait is getting better every day. In the previous fasting, on the 9th day, I was rocked like in a 9-point storm. This makes me happy. Not happy about the other. I lost 6 kg and the impression is that they all left my face and hands.Face like an alien, hands as thin as whips. And the stomach was almost as it was and remained. And why is that? I got to the pharmacy and immediately discovered the shortcomings of the health care system. It turned out that there is no such complex in all of Moscow and is not expected. And what to do for kids from 2 years old, it is not clear? We began to choose from what is available. As a result, I bought Vitrum centuri for people over 50 years old. Great, isn’t it? 2 years and 50, very close. However, I just turned 69 so that should be fine. There was nickel in this complex and I had to take it.Okay, so good, I didn’t have to drink the sawdust from the nickel coin. Now I drink 1 tablet a day …. And more about surprises with weight. My weight loss began to slow down sharply. I started asking the Apostles, it turned out that what I had been warned about had happened, but then it was not available. I began to switch to space nutrition. This means that earthly food is done away with forever. Now only the energy of quasars will be my food, and of course water. This is what I have dreamed of for a long time. Finally it happened.https://pikabu.ru/story/kvazar__samyiy_smertonosnyiy_obekt_vo_vselennoy_dlinnopost_1296170.
11th day , 05/22/2018, morning, weight 78.9 kg, minus 0.2 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 6.1 kg for 10 days, on average 0.6 kg / day. Pressure 190-90, pulse 60. Sugar 5.8. From tablets I drank only vitamin with nickel. Yesterday I thought that the weight loss would stop, but this did not happen. Probably now they will reduce my weight little by little, but to what extent, they do not say … The attacks of the Dark Forces on me stopped, the frame works, the connection with the Apostles is stable, but now they have applied a different tactic.For about a week now, I feel very bad because of the continuous exacerbations that follow one after the other. They want to punish me at all costs for treating people. The Dark Forces want to deprive me of my healing gift, so they connected all the black sorcerers who are jointly trying to send damage to me. We have to constantly fight off this impact. It is impossible to avoid this, all that remains is to endure. But it will be over soon, I have one surprise for them, it’s just that the time has not come yet. About a month ago, probably foreseeing these events, the Apostles recommended that I buy silver bracelets for both arms, both legs and on the neck, only 5 pieces.For what they did not say, but I followed their recommendation. When I was in a jewelry store at the same time I conducted an experiment – the saleswoman hid a silver earring in one hand, and a gold one in the other. Or in one silver, and in the other silver with gilding. I have never been wrong. I had never done this before, so I was surprised myself. By the way, this experiment is quite possible to submit to the Houdini competition https://vk.com/houdiniprize. But I will think about it, maybe I will submit an application. How much more I can do, but I don’t know about it.The Almighty alone knows. It turns out that silver bracelets are my amulets, I only now realized that. Indeed, there is no way without them. When I took off 2 bracelets from my hands and forgot to put them on, problems started during the diagnosis, the frame stopped working. It turned out that the Dark Forces attacked me. As soon as I put on the bracelets, everything stopped. I checked it a couple more times, it really is. Therefore, now constantly in bracelets.
12th day , 05/23/2018, morning, weight 78.9 kg, minus 0.0 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 6.1 kg for 11 days, on average 0.55 kg / day. Pressure 185-95, pulse 55. Sugar 6.6 From tablets I drank only vitamin with nickel. The surprises begin, the weight has ceased to decrease despite the fact that I have not eaten anything at all for 11 days. Moreover, I am told that now the weight may increase. Of course I did not expect this. It turns out that all these “miracles”, it is difficult to call it otherwise, are associated with the transition to space nutrition. The transition itself is not over yet, so what will happen next remains a mystery.Perhaps tomorrow I will see an increase in weight … Finally, the exacerbations stopped. The consequences are still felt, the sugar has risen, but I already feel better. It pleases … A new sensation of an absolutely pure body, both outside and inside, does not leave. It’s worth starving for that.
13th day , 05.24.2018, morning, weight 78.5 kg, minus 0.4 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 6.5 kg for 12 days, on average 0.54 kg / day. Pressure 180-100, pulse 64. Sugar 6.9 From tablets I drank only vitamin with nickel.Weight loss continued, despite the fact that I drink a lot, perhaps 3 liters. The pressure is a little happy, but I’m afraid to jinx it. Sugar grows due to the strongest aggravation of several systems. But for now I do without pills. The weight began to decline again. Now I don’t even know when it will stop.
14th day , 05/25/2018, morning, weight 78.1 kg, minus 0.4 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 6.9 kg for 13 days, on average 0.53 kg / day. Pressure 175-85, pulse 55. Sugar 7.8 Nickel was canceled, but I had to drink 1 tablet for diabetes – Gluconorm.Due to the continuous aggravations of the systems, the sugar rose. In the 13 days since the beginning of the fast, I drank the sugar pill for the first time and twice for the pressure. In general, not bad, but preferably even better. What pleases me is a noticeable decrease in blood pressure. This has not happened for a long time … If you noticed, I write about exacerbations almost every day. I am asked why they occur and what are they for? I have almost no doubt that no one will go to see a doctor if nothing hurts him. Well, if only for prevention.And basically we go to the doctor when there are good reasons, in other words, when an exacerbation of the disease begins. Treatment in alternative medicine follows approximately the same scenario. But there is a difference. If in ordinary life a person is waiting for something to hurt him, then in alternative medicine, exacerbations are triggered forcibly after the start of the treatment program. In order for the disease to be treated, it must be in an exacerbation stage. In this case, the program will be able to understand that the disease needs to be treated and will begin to do so.There is one more difference. In official medicine, treatment ends in the latent phase, and in the alternative, the latent phase is also treated until the state of FBD – the phase without diagnosis. Thus, it is this disease that is forever erased from the DNA memory so that it will never happen again. In official medicine, once a disease has been cured to a latent phase, even in spite of acquired immunity, under unfavorable conditions, it can again become aggravated. This is because the causative agent of the disease was not completely destroyed, but remained in a state of “hibernation” in a state invisible to doctors.
15th day , 05/26/2018, morning, weight 78.1 kg, minus 0.0 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 6.9 kg for 14 days, on average 0.49 kg / day. Pressure 165-90, pulse 60. Sugar 6.1. No pills today. The pressure began to decrease actively. For me 165 is the same as for other 125. Nice surprise. For the last 48-50 years I have been living under constant high pressure. Now, when it began to go down, it seems like a mountain is being lifted off my shoulders, and hoops are falling off my head. Despite 14 days of fasting, I feel better and better.There is no fatigue or dizziness. But there is one but, which the Holy Apostles reminded me of yesterday. More recently, before the start of fasting, I calmly carried bags with groceries weighing 10-12 kg from the store for a distance of 0.5 km. Late yesterday evening, completely forgetting about my hunger strike, I lifted a 5 kg bag of sugar on my shoulder and carried it 50 meters to the car on the street. I barely got it across. Suddenly, acute pain and severe nausea appeared in the region of the heart. I began to shake so much that I could not get into the keyhole for about 2 minutes and enter the apartment.It got scary, I realized that I had made a mistake in picking up this bag, and possibly irreparable. At home for 10-15 minutes I would come to my senses to calm my trembling, and then I sat down at the computer and started treatment. Diagnostics confirmed heart problems and nervous system fatigue. Due to fatigue, inattention, I made such a mistake. In the evening I no longer had the strength to sort it out, and in the morning I asked the Apostles what it was. They explained to me that in this way I was punished for recklessness. That is, now it is categorically impossible for me to lift even such weights… And one more fact. I recently wrote about feeling a clean body both outside and inside. It turned out that this is not entirely true. The interior is still not entirely clean. This was shown by the last 2 bowel movements, which came as a surprise to me. Perhaps there will be more, they don’t tell me. Due to the fact that I drink water, the process of cleansing the intestines continues. It is already noticeable in appearance that the outlines of the figure are changing for the better.
16th day , 05/27/2018, morning, weight 77.4 kg, minus 0.7 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 7.6 kg in 15 days, on average 0.5 kg / day. Pressure 160-95, pulse 65. Sugar 7.6. Today again without pills. Fluctuations in sugar are caused by flare-ups. As you can see, the blood sugar level depends not only on what we eat, but also on the physiological processes in the body. Therefore, today I was allowed not to take a pill, now nothing depends on it. The pressure continues to please, I don’t remember the last time it happened. Moreover, it decreases for natural reasons, without the use of drugs.Now I still have renal hypertension, which means that the treatment of renal failure is proceeding successfully. By the way, my hypertension is hereditary, this is the worst option that earthly medicine does not heal. Let’s see if space medicine is able to cope with this “infection”. I’ve been waiting for this almost all my life.
17th day , 05/28/2018, morning, weight 77.3 kg, minus 0.1 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 7.7 kg for 16 days, on average 0.48 kg / day. Pressure 175-90, pulse 68.Sugar 7.2. Today again without pills. Sugar began to decrease, but the pressure reacted to the exacerbation of kidney disease. Yesterday all day I felt a slight pain in my kidneys. In general, gray everyday life continues. Rather, something new. I remember how I suffered daily in past fasting. Now everything is completely different. I even forget about fasting, everything in life happens as usual, only I don’t eat anything. Wondering what lies ahead?
18th day , 05/29/2018, morning, weight 77.7 kg, plus 0.4 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 7.3 kg for 17 days, an average of 0.43 kg / day. Pressure 205-95, pulse 55. Sugar 7.7. Last night I had to get nervous due to circumstances beyond my control, this affected the pressure and sugar. In the morning I had to take medicine. Surprised by the weight. Probably, if I had not encountered this phenomenon myself, I would not have believed it. But then it happened to me, and not to someone else – an increase in weight during fasting. It is difficult to understand, but it is a fact. As the Apostles explained, I finally switched to space nutrition and my body began to use the energy of quasars to accumulate fat mass.I could still admit that weight loss might stop, but that the opposite happened … This is a complete surprise to me. Incredible but obvious. Is there anything else ahead?
19th day , 05/30/2018, morning, weight 76.9 kg, minus 0.8 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 8.1 kg for 18 days, on average 0.45 kg / day. Pressure 205-95, pulse 60. Sugar 5.9. The situation is starting to improve. Sugar is normal, the weight continued to decrease, the pressure still does not give in, I had to drink half a tablet of Cordipin.If not for the pressure, then in general the condition can be considered satisfactory. Occasionally, the bowel continues to cleanse the remains of feces and mucus. The discharge is insignificant in volume. This is facilitated by the use of liquid about 2 liters per day. I mostly drink compote from frozen berries. I still don’t eat anything, just drink. The apostles told me that I completely switched over to cosmic food, but a return to earthly food is still possible. Probably, after a complete cleansing of the intestines, they can transfer me to dry fasting.The need for water will sharply decrease and there will be enough moisture from the atmosphere, the consumption of which will continue through the lungs along with the inhaled air, and through the skin. I have already written in my articles that I rarely use earthly sources of information. I get almost all knowledge from the Cosmos. Therefore, I had no idea how things are with starvation on Earth. Now I was allowed to read this information and I was surprised to learn that people have been starving for months and years. Many people practice dry fasting.In 2016, I also went on a dry fast, but only for 7 days. Probably now I have to break my personal best. I don’t know what will happen next. Perhaps everything will continue indefinitely, perhaps it will end any day. For some reason, they don’t tell me specifically. One thing I can say with certainty is that various tests await me ahead – both dry fasting, and a long stay in an atmosphere without oxygen and even in an atmosphereless space, this will be performed on the planets Moon, Mars, etc. without a spacesuit.While vaguely imagine how it will be. In the future, I will be able to stay on any planet for a long time, even with a poisonous atmosphere, provided that the temperature on its surface is no higher than +50 degrees C. I will not be afraid of the space cold. Although on Earth now I’m freezing if it’s less than +20 outside. These are the paradoxes.
20th day , 05/31/2018, morning, weight 77.0 kg, plus 0.1 kg, total from the beginning of fasting minus 8.0 kg for 19 days, on average 0.42 kg / day. Pressure 170-90, pulse 55.Sugar 6.3. Today the pressure has already started to decrease after 2 days of stagnation. I feel better every day. It is already noticeable in my figure that I lost 8 kg. The belly is almost gone, even the sides are slightly corrected and it will be fine. The whole body feels lightness, there is no fatigue, dizziness, as it was in the past. I don’t want to eat, I drink about 2 liters a day. Yesterday I tried to diversify the drinks menu, diluted with boiling water 2 times the pickle from canned homemade cucumbers. Tired of drinking constantly sweetish, but here at least some kind of variety.I like it.
“Stormglass”: How a descendant of Charles II invented an amazing weather predictor in a bottle | Scientific pop. Science for all
In the late 1970s, in one of the issues of the journal “Chemistry and Life” there was an article about one very unusual device “Stormglass” capable of predicting the weather.
Even in our time of mighty steel ships, the weather forecast is extremely important for mariners. What can we say about the ships of the past, which often went to the bottom because of the storm.Understandably, for a relatively accurate prediction of weather conditions, many skippers were even ready to sell their immortal soul, not to say to shell out a lump sum in gold coins. However, the mercury barometer on ships was almost impossible to use due to the constant rolling, and the first aneroid barometer was invented only in 1847. Until then, every captain got out as best he could.

In 1818, Robert Fitzroy (by the way, a direct descendant of King Charles II, albeit through an extramarital line) began his studies at the Portsmouth Royal Naval Academy.A very noble background practically guaranteed a successful career – and that is exactly what happened, Fitzroy rose to the rank of vice admiral.
After graduation, Robert served for some time as a midshipman on the ships “Hind” and “Thetis”, then as a lieutenant on the flagship of Admiral Otwayya “Ganges”. And already in 1828, Robert Fitzroy (only 23 years old) received the famous ten-gun brig “Beagle” under his command, which made a name for itself thanks to participation in scientific expeditions, including with Charles Darwin.Moreover, it was Fitzroy who invited Darwin to the scientific voyage.
As the captain of a ship, Fitzroy remained much more of a sailor than a scientist. And as a sailor he was interested in the coming weather. To predict it, the young man began to use a “device” called “stormglass”. This is a combination of two Dutch words, the first of which does not need to be translated, and “glass” means “glass”.
The “device” itself (this word has to be put in quotation marks, since neither its mechanism of action nor its effectiveness have yet been explained) was a hermetically sealed glass flask containing a solution of alcohol in distilled water (40 and 33 ml, respectively ) with 10 grams of camphor dissolved in it.Auxiliary substances in the solution were 2.5 g of ammonium chloride and potassium nitrate.

The resulting solution is metastable – reversible crystallization occurs in it, and crystals appear depending on a combination of external conditions. On the Internet, you can find many statements that it is Robert Fitzroy who is the inventor of the stormglass, but there is no real evidence of this. Most likely, the stormglass is the creation of some alchemist (and they made many discoveries in chemistry), who later became disillusioned with their method of creating the philosopher’s stone.

The main merit of Robert Fitzroy is that, not understanding the mechanism of action of stormglass, he decided to systematize his observations of crystals inside the “device” depending on the weather. Here you can make a small remark – many people have little idea of the mechanism of action of mercury thermometers (and it is not as simple as it seems at first glance), but this does not at all prevent, depending on the readings of the thermometer, from successfully treating their children and household members.
Based on the results of his observations of stormglass, Robert Fitzroy compiled a weather table depending on the transparency of the liquid in the flask and the presence and shape of crystals (or their absence).
The video shows how crystals appear and disappear in the stormglass when the weather changes:
Using the array of his observations, the sailor learned to predict the weather quite accurately, so after years the man headed the UK Meteorological Department and published the book “Book about the weather ”, where he systematized his observations of the stormglass in understandable language.
Unfortunately, the scientific experiments were unable to confirm the conclusions of Robert Fitzroy and to reveal the dependence of the formation of crystals inside the stormglass on external weather conditions. True, it can be assumed that this dependence exists, it is simply that either the force fields causing it were not investigated in the experiments carried out, or they are, in principle, unknown to modern science. And the stormglass, secretly named after the British vice admiral, has now turned from a weather forecasting device into a funny one, which can be easily purchased in online stores

pickle.load – EOFError: Out of inputs
I have an .obj file in which, earlier, I converted the image to base64 and saved the pickle. The problem is when I try to download the file.obj pickles, convert the code to an image from base64, and load it from Pygame. Function that loads the image: definition mainDisplay_load (i): main_folder = path.dirname (__ FILE__) img_main_folder = path.join (main_folder, “sd_graphics”) # loadImg self.mainTerminal = pg.image.load (path.join (img_main_folder ., self.main_uncode (“tr.obj”))) convert_alpha () function that decrypts the file: Main_uncode protection (i, object): OpenFile = open (object “RB”) st = pickle.load (OpenFile ) openFile.close () FILEDATA = base64.b64decode (str) return FILEDATA I get an error when executing the code: str = pickle.load (OpenFile) EOFError: Out of input How can I fix this? Python version: 3.6.2 Pygame version: 1.9.3 Update 1 This is the code I used to create the .obj file: import base64, pickle open (“terminal.png”, “radio channel”) like ImageFile: st = base64 .b64encode (imageFile.read ()) print (st) file_pi = open (“tr.obj”, “thermometer”) pickle.dump (st, file_pi) file_pi.close () file_pi2 = open (“tr.obj “,” RB “) str2 = pickle.load (file_pi2) file_pi2.close () imgdata = base64.b64decode (str2) filename = ‘some_image.jpg’ # I’m assuming you have a way to get unique filenames with open (filename, “thermometer”) like F: f.write (imgdata) After the file is created, it is loaded and a second image is created. This is to check if the image is the same or there are errors in the conversion. As you can see, I used a piece of code to load the image, but instead of saving it, it loads into Pygame.And this is where the error occurs. Update 2 I finally managed to solve. In the main code: Protect mainDisplay_load (self): self.all_graphics = pg.sprite.Group () self.graphics_menu = pg.sprite.Group () # loadImg self.img_mainTerminal = mainGraphics (i, 0, 0, “sd_graphics / tr .obj “) In the library containing graphic classes: import Pygame in pg import base64 as shc import brine to pk from Io import BytesIO also from lib.setting import * class mainGraphics (pg.sprite.Sprite): Protection __init __ (itself, games, x, y, object): self.groups = game.all_graphics, game.graphics_menu pg.sprite.Sprite .__ __ INIT (self, self.groups) self.game = game self.object = self object. outputGraphics = by formula () self.x = x = y self.y self.eventType () self.rect = self.image.get_rect () self.rect.x = self.x * tilesizeDefault self.rect.y = self … y * tilesizeDefault DEF typeEvent (i): OpenFile = open (self.object, “RB”) st = pk.load (OpenFile) openFile.close () self.outputGraphics.write (bs.b64decode (st)) self.outputGraphics .seek (0) self.image = pg.image.load (self.outputGraphics) .convert_alpha () when asked why I should do such a thing, it’s simple: any attacker with sufficient motivation can still get before it is easy Python is free and open source. On the one hand, we have a person who deliberately goes and change and restore hidden data. But if Python is an open language, as with even more complex and secure languages, the most motivated are able to hack a game or program and get the same data.On the other hand, we have a person who knows only the basics, or even not that. A person who cannot access files without knowing more about the language or decoding the files. Thus, you can understand that decoding files, from my point of view, should not be protected from a motivated person. Because even with a more complex and defensible language, that a motivated person will be able to get what he wants.
