ECH, there's always Eastern WA!

Yeah, I used to hang out in the Tri Cities area and still have good friends there, but the wage scale for what I do isn't optimal. If I could find a job that would make the wage/cost of living equation look favorable I'd seriously consider it.

I've taken 2 doses of Benadryl, had 2 cups of coffee, a 5-hour energy, and a Mountain Dew in the past 4 hours. Apparently, the only reason I'm not having the worst Vasoconstriction Migraine I've ever had is because of the Niacin (Potent Vasodilator) included in the 5-hour energy.  :lulz:

Niacin has a much shorter half-life though, so it's likely going to be out of my system within the next hour  :horrormirth:

For similar results, I hear meth is cheaper.

Nah, I actually feel pretty good.

Add in my generally low levels of Acetylcholine. Then, Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) is a potent anti-cholinergic, while the caffeine is a strong cholinergic. So that balances out to a bit higher than it should be, but not cholinergic crisis level. Not only that, but the 5-hour energy had enough L-Tyrosine and Phenylalanine to boost Dopamine production to the same as the Acetylcholine levels, pretty much creating a pretty even balance.

As I type this, the Niacin is wearing off. Hello all-day migraine, my old friend.

I've sometimes wondered what a straight dose of dopamine hcl might be like. It can cause vascular restriction and lead to ischemia, but at a low enough dose would probably put any energy drink or amphetamine to shame for motivation and euphoria. A little norepinephrine and your likely going to be flying for hours.

It can cause vascular restriction and lead to ischemia, but at a low enough dose would probably put any energy drink or amphetamine to shame for motivation and euphoria. A little norepinephrine and your likely going to be flying for hours.

I experimented with a form of ASMR and discovered the ability to control it. I was able to trigger the sensation, and control its strength without the use of outside stimuli at one point. It was like flipping on the pleasure switch in my brain whenever I wanted. I ended up doing it so much, I must have run myself dangerously low of Norepinephrine and Dopamine, because after a certain point, I stopped feeling pleasure from it. It turned into pain, and almost became a tick, as the trigger started causing neck muscle twitches. I had to force constant human contact for weeks and avoid moving and twitching for weeks to get it to stop.

If the above situation was caused by manual release of norepinephrine and a dopaminergic reward association with said release, then I imagine "A little norepinephrine" would cause extreme dependence issues. Assuming, of course, that the norepinephrine release that you're likely referring to is induced by a releasing agent, not an injection of norepinephrine itself. An injection of either dopamine or norepinephrine would only have effects on blood pressure, heartrate, and the side effects those mechanisms are connected to. Injections of these neurotransmitters don't cross the Blood-brain barrier, so it wouldn't have the "high" you're referring to. But inducing release, blocking re-uptake of, or agonizing the receptors of those neurotransmitters would cause that high. Such is the basis of Amphetamines and similar drugs. Which explains the dependence issues associated with such drugs.

Moral of the story: Don't do drugs if you have a malfunctioning reward system and don't know how to control it. And don't do drugs often if you don't want your reward system to malfunction later on.

Alas, no.  This is the truly unbearable aspect of my job, that my weaponised-grade sarcasm and irony are often unappreciated by people for whom English is a 4th language, behind their native language, Entitlement and Derp.

See, this is where you see how far you can go before they realize you're laughing at them.

I mean, this is basic British, here.

It's a lost cause over here. I was laughing into someones face a couple of weeks back. They joined in.

"No. Stop. I'm laughing at you, not with you, and you're ruining it".

No sense of decorum here anymore.

You're almost at America. 

When you laugh at someone and they holler that you're <insert political faction that you aren't>, you have gone full America.  You can preview it on Facebook.

So today I found out TGRR, and I are scientists. As the heralds of Science please do the universe a far, and SHUT THE FUCK UP.

Clearly scientists and engineers are two diametrically opposed mutually exclusive things and it would be simply impossible according to the laws of the universe for someone to do both things.

You're a fuckin' genius, you are. Thanks for SHOWING US WHAT, guy.

Also, when you say some dumb shit on facebook that you think is smart and you've said it in a thread that's already full of PD members you should probably come here and crow about it too because that's a great look and clearly we all need to give twice as many fucks.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that you're a boring little turd of an edgelord and SHUT UP.

I just noticed the "Deserved it" status on Mr. Cuck, here. For some reason I assumed it was a brand new poptart account or something. Is he an oldspag gone hag? Or did an oldspag get their account hacked?

Anywho, turns out my caffeine tolerance was high enough to keep the vasoconstriction-induced headache within the range of about 20 minutes. Also, it appears that whatever was causing my allergies is inhibited by unending pouring rain. Woot woot.
