    I remember you mention Cape Town once or twice. Unfortunately I never made it there. We had to move according to my dad's job site. He used to work as an engineer - construction type of work.

    We lived in a town on a lake called Benoni. It was very close to Johannesburg. I also remember visiting a crocodile farm by Durban, a large city situated on the Indian ocean. I also remember touching the crocodile's skin through a chain link fence

    • Pic of the highlights! PIC OF THE HIGHLIGHTS.

      Dude, speaking of tattoos, my mom just got her eyeliner tattooed today. FOR THE SECOND TIME IN HER LIFE- sorry I'm done with the all-caps. Talk about badass. That shit's gotta hurt.

      Also, I really want to get a triple forward helix but I heard it's one of the more painful ones. I have 6 lobe piercings (3 on each side) and have never had cartilage pierced.

        Ha, I'll post them later I also got an undercut, which I quite like, so my hair looks okay when it's up..

        Also - coolest fucking piercing EVER! Do you mind if I get it too? We could get it at the same time and it will almost be like we're real life friends!

        Tattooed makeup... not sure. It looks great on other people, but don't know if I could commit to having the same eyeliner for the rest of my life....

        You're very lucky you lived there! Out of all the places I've ever visited, South Africa is by far the most beautiful. We drove all the way from Nelspruit to CApe Town and it was like heaven on earth.

        Oh, also, here's some info on oil pulling: http://mamanatural.com/how-to-do-oil-pulling/

        QUESTION to everyone:

        What's the most beautiful place you've ever been? Gimme pictures!

        My answer: Cape Town.

        "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

        In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

          I had to google that. I bet you look hot(ter than usual)!

          Also - coolest fucking piercing EVER! Do you mind if I get it too? We could get it at the same time and it will almost be like we're real life friends!
          No! You aren't allowed. And anyway it would only almost be like we were real life friends Haha yes I would love to get it "together" but you'll have to be patient unless I do it today or tomorrow. Otherwise I won't be back home (Tacoma. I know, I live in too many places) until the 20th. I'm going to CA again!

          Tattooed makeup... not sure. It looks great on other people, but don't know if I could commit to having the same eyeliner for the rest of my life....
          At y/our age, absolutely, but at her age, she's almost 60 and wears the same black eyeliner every day. Definitely convenient! I still think she's a boss for getting needles stuck into her eyelids.

          QUESTION to everyone:
          What's the most beautiful place you've ever been? Gimme pictures!
          Wow, I just got hit really hard with that one. Breathtaking places came to mind - friends' picture I have seen or pictures I have seen in books or on the internet... and then I realized I had never been to those places myself. Something's gotta change.

          My answer, however, surprises me somewhat. I love nature and very much dislike cities but my gut reaction is to say Florence, Italy. Maybe because I grew up in such an ugly city a beautiful one seems all that much more glamorous to me. Pulled these off the web. My pictures sucked.




          I felt so at home there.

          Naturally beautiful places, I would say Hawaii is very beautiful but doesn't stir anything in me. I'm more moved by the beauty of my part of the world - the pacific northwest.

          From a hike I took this spring:

          Re: oil pulling, I remember reading about it a while ago and I was going to try it but never got around to it. I heard it's supposed to boost immunity as well?
          Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

          • Wish I could see the undercut!

            Oil pulling helps when my gums randomly feel irritated. I associate that irritated feeling with receding gums, so I'm pretty paranoid about it (having already had grafts done when I was 12 to prepare for lower braces). I only do it a few times a week and it's so much less of a hassle now that my coconut oil is always liquid.

            I took a trip to Italy when I was 17 and we visited a bunch of places. Pompeii was probably my favorite. I'd love to do a tour through Italy again.

              • Holy crap Gray - that is stunning!!! I'll have to put Bulgaria on my "to visit" list.

                Nameless and Ombat: I agree: there's something magical about Italy. I think it's cos' you're constantly confronted with a fallen empire. Rome gives me a real sense of my own mortality.

                Ci: Paris is a cliche for a reason If there are such things as past lives I bet you were French btw!

                Oil pulling: that's interesting NW, about the receding gums. I noticed that one of my teeth is getting very long, so hopefully this will help with it. I'm using sunflower oil, which obviously isn't ideal, but I just couldn't be bothered melting coconut oil every morning. Om, don't know about improving immunity. Don't see how it would...? But hey, anythings possible!

                And, here is the haircut! It actually looked better last time I got it done - next time I'm going to get a thinner line along the side.





                Ombat, which ear should I get the triple piercing on? My left ear (with the flower earring) has three holes already; the right ear (with the mid cuff piercing) has two holes.

                  Your haircut is cute, and the highlights don't seem to be too light, I think you were just expecting something specific and kinda freaked because it's a little different. But, no worries, you'll get used to it and then you'll love it!
                  Ha, thank you! Actually, I know the colour is okay: it's just too blond for my face. But the hair was honestly the least of my worries yesterday: I just threw it in there as another aspect to my shitty day

                  • You got an undercut? Niiice

                    Sorry to hear you fell out with someone too. Any reason for that?
                    Complications. Also, don't think it's a falling out, I just pissed them off really badly. Sorry to be vague, but I'm not keen on voicing personal things anywhere.

                      Supplement question:

                      If you apply a vitamin to your skin (in a cream or whatnot), is it as good as taking a supplement? I'm using powered niacinamide in a cream, and I'm wondering if this is enough, or should I be taking a sup as well? Also, if I'm using Copper peptides, would this give me copper intake (or do I really have to eat liver? )

                      I just ordered Aloe Vera juice, and Vitamin D 5000 softgels. The sup toll is starting to rise again...!

                      • the skin is permeable, and in many cases topical application is preferable(epsom baths, etc) as bacteria feeds on trace minerals too. It's a difference between penetration, and absorption, the latter of which enters the bloodstream.

                        • How much gelatin do you guys take? I just bought a couple boxes (4 packets in each box) until I can order that canister from Amazon. I think I'm doing about a teaspoon at a time, but not sure of the effects since mag citrate is moving things along. I ate too much popcorn the other day and uh... it's still passing, so I'm a little screwed up right now =P

                            Brilliant - thank you! What do you think about the copper? Btw, i just started putting the powered niacin into cream (prior to this I was spritzing it from water) and it really helping my flushing face! Thanks again for suggesting it to me, waybackwhen.

                            • I think the universe is trying to give me a sign.

                              First of all, I think I've decided against the forward helix. Apparently it's the most difficult to heel and I am constantly brushing my hair over my ear so I would bump it constantly. My next thought was something like this or this. I think it will be easier to take care of.

                              The first place I called for a quote no longer does piercings. The second place I called is closed until Tuesday (I wont be here) and when I called the third place their piercer wouldn't be in until Tuesday.

                              Mrr.

                              As for your piercing, I don't know. Whatever side you don't sleep on? But I think maybe the ear with the flower piercing.
                              Is it weird in here, or is it just me?

                                You don't need to supplement copper.

                                Copper binding

                                Research of the copper binding properties of GHK and two synthetic peptides, in which histidine was replaced with a synthetic amino acid, established that the amino acid glycine plays major role in copper binding, while lysine can interact with copper only at alkaline pH. At physiological pH, lysine is able to interact with a cellular receptor. The ability of GHK to interact both with copper and with a cellular receptor allows it to transfer copper into and from cells. The small size of GHK permits speedy traveling in extracellular space and its easy access to cellular receptors.[38]

                                The molecular structure of the GHK copper complex (GHK-Cu) has been extensively studied using X-ray crystallography, EPR spectroscopy, X-ray absorption spectroscopy, NMR spectroscopy as well as other methods such as titration. In the GHK-Cu complex, the Cu (II) ion is coordinated by the nitrogen from the imidazole side chain of the histidine, another nitrogen from the alpha-amino group of glycine and the deprotonated amide nitrogen of the glycine–histidine peptide bond. Since such a structure couldn’t explain a high stability constant of the GHK-Cu complex (log 10 =16.44 vs. 8.68 of the GH copper complex, which is similar to the GHK-Cu structure), it was proposed that another amino group participates in the complex formation. According to the recent study by Hureau et al. the Cu(II) is also coordinated by the oxygen from the carboxyl group of the lysine from the neighboring complex. Another carboxyl group of lysine from a neighboring complex provides the apical oxygen, resulting in the square-planar pyramid configuration.[39] Many researchers proposed that at the physiological pH, GHK-Cu complexes can form binary and ternary structures which may involve amino acid histidine and/or the copper binding region of the albumin molecule. Lau and Sarkar found also that GHK can easily obtain copper 2+ bound to other molecules such as the high affinity copper transport site on plasma albumin ((albumin binding constant log 10 =16.2 vs. GHK binding constant 16 log 10 =16.44). It has been established that copper (II) redox activity is silenced when copper ions are complexed with the GHK tripeptide, which allows the delivery of non-toxic copper into the cell.[40]
                                Biological significance

                                Copper is a transition metal that is vital for all eukaryotic organisms from microbes to humans. A dozen enzymes (cuproenzymes) use changes in copper oxidation state to catalyze important biochemical reactions including cellular respiration (cytochrome c oxidase), antioxidant defense (ceruloplasmin, superoxide dismutase (SOD), detoxification (metallothioneins), blood clotting (blood clotting factors V and VIII), melanin production (tyrosinase) and the connective tissue formation (lysyl peroxidase). Copper is required for iron metabolism, oxygenation, neurotransmission, embryonic development and many other essential biological processes. Another function of copper is signaling – for example, stem cells require a certain level of copper in the media to start their differentiation into cells needed for repair. Thus, GHK-Cu’s ability to bind copper and to modulate its tissue level is a key factor determining its biological activity.[41]
                                Chocolate is a good source of copper too. And, no problem
