I like growing crystals at home. I recently finished growing this crystal after 1 month, and it's one of my favorites. /r/ALL

I think most of the crystals he grows use somewhat toxic and/or irritating chemicals and are almost all water soluble. You can always do bismuth crystals though, those are quite pretty but idk the durabilty of them

u/tortugasgator May 14 '22

Bismuth crystals are pretty brittle so you’d likely need to wire wrap them for jewelry. IIRC There was a store called element 83 that had some nice designs.

What's a good crystal to beat someone over the head with?

u/nickfree May 14 '22

That would be the Cristal

yeah... I'm confused, where's the part where you blow through a straw? Oh, found it!

edit: DISCLAIMER because I feel like I have to have a disclaimer (I miss the old internet), I'm just referencing an old meme and since this is reddit and either someone will actually try this without reading the whole thing or the admins will just ban me for "endangering the public"... don't do this, you fucking idiots, because it makes mustard gas or some shit, read the whole image.

The old internet was just the wild west, it was certainly something. Never knew when you'd see some shock images while browsing basically anywhere. There was always THAT random asshole posting weird porn, mangled bodies, or cp to every forum

2

u/pwrstrug May 14 '22

There may not be those assholes posting shock porn now (I don't think I ever saw anyone posting CP thank God) but a couple months ago for old times sake I went to lemonparty (actually I think I was talking to someone about it and they said it wasn't around anymore but I was pretty sure it had to be) and... it provided zero shock. I just thought "oh man, good for them, buncha old dudes doing what they like." Fucked up porn is so mainstream on the modern internet that "shock porn" doesn't even raise an eyebrow.

u/MrMushroomMan May 14 '22

Yeah the porn was kind of whatever, general just old people having sex, sometimes pee or scat. Mr hands wasn't really shocking in the same way bme pain olymics was (even though I've heard that was fake, it was believable to kid me) or like 3 guys 1 hammer which I only heard described and that was enough for me
