The promised website:<-(Edit Site is down, I've finished this experiment)

Of course, my name isn't Jason, but everything else is legitimate. Content will be slowly added to the main site, I'm more interested in what sort of traffic google adwords can generate for me, so far I'm not terribly impressed. Thankfully, they've got that $100 account start up promotion, so as I've said before, I only need to recoup $15.01 to make back my investment.

Currently the forum is what needs the most work, as with any forum its difficult to get off the ground. But with such a focus on ginseng, sexual health, and herbal remedies I do think there is potential - I don't believe there is a similar community of any size.

The forum is up!
Or I suppose you could just click this link

The main site will be up and running by late tonight, but I'm getting the forum started. Its always such a daunting task to get a forum up and running. I'm using adwords to test some traffic generation, but I won't be able to make any money until I hook up the main account to adsense. Eventually I'll incorporate ads into the forum itself, but for now that is on the backburner. Getting a stable community of around 100 members is what I'm focused on in the next two weeks. Things will become much easier once the main site is up.

On a random note, I have a loaded air-rifle in my lap. I'm waiting on a rat/mouse that's slowly been chewing a hole in the wall to resume. Then I'm going to put the muzzle to the hole, squeeze the trigger, and pray the little fellow wont smell to badly in the coming days.

Google bot arrived at the forum seconds after this post went up.

New Website?

I'm about to launch a new website centered around herbs and adaptogens, with a focus on their use as weight-loss aids (since that is always a huge traffic draw). The website and forum community will promote the exchange of knowledge on this esoteric subject, in an environment that isn't centered around selling crap. As soon as the site is up I'll link to it here so those readers who are more interested in the positive or politically correct portions of this blog can check it out. Unlike the cult blog this is something I do have a legitimate interest in, and I highly encourage you all to check it out when I post the link.

And while we are on the subject, today I threw back a record (for me) seventeen 100mg gingseng capsules. This was based on a post I read online, quoted below for your convenience:

"I have been taking panax ginseng with a 30% Ginsenosides count.
I take about 300-500 mg's per day.
anyone that has taken diesel test, and had that grande bolas feeling.
It is about 5 times as noticable with panax ginseng."

For those of you who don't wish to do the math, 500mgs at 30% still contains more ginsenosides than my 1700mg dose at just 7%. I'm curious if I will experience any noticeable change, the poster whom I'm quoting mentioned that he had gotten no effect off of 300-600mg of 7%, which is about what I've been doing. Eh, we'll see.

Korean Ginseng

Not going to advertise Ginseng, but I feel writing about my current Ginseng experience is important for those readers who follow this blog for the occasional health tip. For those unaware (how can you not be?) Ginseng is that legendary herb that has been a perennial favorite of herbal health. I picked up a standardized bottle from a local grocery store a month back to take as a placebo (works wonders when your high). 

My bottle is standardized at 7% ginsenosides/100mg, and I had been taking about 300mg a day for the past three weeks, with no particularly noticeable effects. I've recently (read, yesterday) started dosing with 500mg+ and am curious as to any results. Its way to early to provide data on this, but I'll keep y'all updated.

Those abs are popping out rapidly now that I'm nearly the end of my cut, and I found out the university hasn't suspended my ID card that I use to access the gym. This means I have ready access to the university's full gym, something I didn't know two months ago.

I'll make a post about the differences between technical college and university life later, right now I'm enjoying the savings on tuition and the newly realized free gym.
