Dumbster Diving, Voting Strategy and Help Needed

5 months ago

It's friday, and I don't really have any plans except maybe watch some TV or something else. Therefore I'll just write a quick post of random stuff. In two hours, one of the local supermarket will close, and I will go for another night of dumbster diving. That's my first topic.

Dumbster Diving

All december I have dumbster dived. I don't really dive into it head first, but I look in dumbster behind local supermarket. I started doing this as I didn't had a lot of money, and thought it would be exciting, and holy shit it is. Every night I have no idea what I will have for dinner except the coming three weeks as I found 10 kg of great meat a week ago. That meat that costs like 50 $ pr. 1/4 kilogram. That was probably the best dumbster dive I have done, but normally I will find 15-25 $ worth of food every night. That means that I almost save all the money I normally spend on food, and I get more food than before I started dumbster diving. Those money saved I can now spend on crypto, vacation or other things. Have you ever tried dumbster diving?

Changing My Voting Strategy

Recently I have changed my voting strategy to only voting with 40, 50 and 100 % voting power. Also I now try to only vote 30 mins after the post was created. Except my own. I think this has increased my curation reward but I'm not sure. What is your voting strategy and what works best?

Smoking again?

I stopped smoking two or three years ago due to stress and some bad anxiety attacks. Also it was taking over my life in a bad way, but due to smoke.io I have gained the my interest back for weed. I, hopefully, never will smoke as much as I did back then (2-3 joints per day), but I don't mind smoking once in a while. Therefore I ask you, my holy guides. What should I smoke to have the least chance of any anxiety symptons, and if I just want to calm myself down but without getting lazy? If weed like that actually exist.

In about an hour I will go for another dumbster dive...Wish me luck! I could use some vegetables and stuff, so fingers crossed!

Good luck with your dive! I think a sativa would be more of a relaxing high than an indica which puts you on your ass..

For voting strategy I stopped voting on my own posts for at least the first hour, for other peoples posts I vote as soon as I read it regardless of time.. curation rewards have been good (apx 10-12 smoke a week), im worried if I dont vote as soon as I see it and wait that i'll end up completely forgetting to vote and support the posts i like.. So with 850 smoke power I'm earning about 1.2% back each week.. not sure if this is good or bad..

I think that's okay, but why do you wait to vote for your own posts unitl after an hour?

If I vote on my post early I will receive some of the curation rewards in addition to author rewards. Voting later gives others the chance to vote on my post early and receive a larger share of the curation rewards. Not sure if you were blogging on steem but this is part of the reason self voting was frowned upon by many, because you steal away the incentive opportunity for the network to curate good content.

I see, but don't you also take a greater share of the curation rewards if you vote later?

·

Yes, but it can also stop people from voting on your post because the feel of 'bad faith' but this depends on the size of the vote in my opinion. A little smoker voting early is acceptable, a big seems greedy.

I see. I was actually voting early to not take a big portion of the curation. So I should vote later to support my voters more?

The way it works is that the votes stack on top of each other for curation with the early voters getting the largest factor. However, there is a 30 minute window of penalty.

For example If I vote on you.

at 0 minutes,
100 percent of my curation goes to you.

at 10 minutes,
66% of my curation goes to you, I get 33%

at 20 minutes,
33% of my curation goes to you, I get 66%

after 30 minutes
there is no penalty, I get 100%

So, the early voters get the benefit of stacking but get penalized. On smoke, the penalty goes to the author.

This means that when you self-vote early, you get the benefit of stacking and the penalty gets paid directly to you. With a vote of your size, it effectively shuts others out of getting decent curation returns and maximizes your earnings, which is why people frown heavily upon it.

If you want to reward your voters, vote after they have had a chance to read and vote so you can maximize their returns. It will also show good faith and likely encourage more people to vote over time.

Personally, If I notice people often self-voting early (medium to large stake) I am unlikely to vote on their post. But, everyone has their own choices to make :)

I will also add, that on Smoke you are getting 50% return anyway so with a large vote as you have, you are going to get decent curation on all votes so, don't stress about maximizing it on your own posts.

Thanks! I actually thought it worked in another way. I will change so that I vote for my own posts after a couple of hours. I hope I haven't seemed greedy, but I just didn't know. Thank you so much for explaining this! :)

@raz thanks for the thorough clarification!

#girlscoutcookies helps with my anxiety! It seems to level me out pretty nicely! Also #granddaddypurp is a good one to try to balance anxiety from my experience! Good luck on the dive!!!

·

The dive was not as good as I am use to, but that's okay. Thanks for the advice!

Well the next one will bring you a plethora of awesomeness!!! #faith

I shoot for about once a week, but I often end up smoking more.

I have had the same problem with smoking weed. Severe anxiety and paranoia when I smoke high THC. My best advice is to try high CBD weed like Charlotte’s Web (20% CBD) or some Cannabis Ruderalis with 10% CBD .... both of these only have 1% THC or less so I have no stress, anxiety, paranoia from smoking these. I add a small pinch of THC to activate the CBD. A company has found that this ratio 20:1 (CBD/THC) also kills Cancer .... so you can’t go wrong. Maybe you will live forever smoking or consuming CBD... (kaneh Bosm)

Thanks man! Maybe I'll give that a try! :)

I have just recently started watching some YT videos about dumpster diving (I even wrote a post maybe last week or the week before on Weku about it). It is truly amazing what is being tossed out.

Good luck with the latest dive!

Honestly, I don't even think about the percentage for voting. I know there is a link you can use to make your percentages lower than the 100% I have currently, but I do only vote for quality content. That's always been the way I do it on every platform.

He has over the 50k required for the slider. 50k is a lot but it is better than small voters spreading 1% votes.

We should make a Smoke diving series. When I think of smokers I often think of people not buying expensive materalistic shit, and therefore dumbster diving fit into my image of smokers :p I might be too judgemental here :D

As others have said I would recommend high CBD strains if you are going for weed. Otherwise maybe go for some light dry-sift hashish. In my experience weed is way more prone to give anxiety attacks then hashish for some reason. I have boiled it down to probably have something to do with the hashish having a wider cannabinoid and terpene profile. It would make sense since hashish is usually made from fields of 100's of different phenotypes and variations. When you smoke weed, you just get that one plants cannabinoid/terp profile.

·

Maybe you should ship something from Norway? ;)

Very true.... I never had paranoia or anxiety issues with hash.... Learn something new here every day. Thanks.

In short vote around 30 minutes when you vote for other posts and on your own post I think its better to vote later than 30 minutes if you want to reward your followers more.

Really good info. I will follow you.
Good smoke and a nice evening.
