Watch "The Battle Raging In Nigeria Over Control Of Oil | VICE on HBO" on YouTube

Watch this madness!

Holy shit I thought our people had it hard. Running a distillation lab off generators in the mountains and sleeping in a tent looks like paradise in comparison to the way these boys are moon shining petroleum distillates in Niger. What a fucking nightmare.

They are distilling their crude and fractioning off the diesel with a giant fucking bonfire as the heat source.

That’s definitely not going to make the fire marshall happy🤣

Not to mention the complete lack of C1D1 enclosures and safety equipment!

I bet that muddy sinkhole filled with flaming byproducts isn’t even UL listed!

CEQA officials would lose their shit over this

We should send them a few thousand CBD seeds so they can get a new income stream

I’d say their need for biofuels seems real high- maybe focus on tricrop that can be converted to fuel more readily

Food and fuel… Tricrop for sure. Or pigs

Edit: Both. Definitely both.

Send em seeds and mycelium to remediate that soil from the African crude pool party :sunglasses: seems like a good spot to have a few experiments.

@Rowan

Hemp can be pretty easily converted to biofuels through various pathways. I’m also thinking textiles as well…

And we get our cbd as a feedstock :thinking:

Call me crazy but I want hemp and it’s valorization to feedstock to be as cheap as possible.

I say tricrop as in hemp tricrop, you get cannabinoids, seeds, and fiber in one plant- I’m definitely all about the as of yet less explored uses for the plant

Oh I’m with you, I’m gonna let the pigs graze off the seeds and buds, then come back through and rake up the fiber. Or, possibly inoculate it all out in the field :eyes:

or we can just send them a bunch of guns and ask them to give us diamonds, gold and oil…seems to be working for the capitalist so far

That was a joke.

I once was lucky enough to work with pork that was finished some on a diet of Fuji apples and hazlenuts for the last three months of their lives- they tasted as expected… apples and hazelnut- I garuntee you that if you fed pigs a steady diet of cbd rich food you could extract cannabinoids from the pork fat itself.

Let’s do this, for science.

Im sort of actually losing my shit over this concept rn… imagine the most relaxed happy pigs in the world all high on edibles all day long, like how the Japanese make Waygu beef by giving them
Massages and getting them drunk on beer and singing them songs… but it’s hemp and pork and American AF

Make these pigs guzzle guzzle guzzle distillate all day long. :rofl::joy:

This is an awesome idea, btw.
