Super Cheap Agar from asian markets adn bulkfoods
    #1398107 - 03/21/03 11:43 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Does anyone use agar from those asian markets or bulk foods places? DO i really need to shell out my hard earned clams to buy the agar from a chemical or science supply? Also what can i use to seal the petri dishes besides that super expensive parafilm?

Do any nutrients need to be added to agar-agar for petri growth?
What is a good agar to water ratio?

You forget that in the full spectrum of things, the guy at the store was kinda in the right. I mean, people who run those kind of stores really need to watch their backs. That's why they have the right not to sell anything to anyone for any reason. Sure it sucks for you, and I don't dispute the fact that he made quite a speculation, but he was RIGHT! Some one who really needed for a "legitimate" reason would have no problems taking their business elsewhere (in theory, thats how its supposed to work at the gas station with cigs, but if I don't have my ID and they won't sell me smokes, I make a fuss :smile:).

Perhaps it is just an early warning that you arn't doing something right. If this guy assumes you will use a product for some "mischievous" purpose, then you need to work on you act a little.

Thats so bullshit!! I hate the arrogance of Scientific Companies...

Agar can be used for growing edible mushrooms as well as Home Tissue Culture of plants...

Reguardless, it can also be used for illicit purposes. Its the guy at the store's job to prevent the selling of products to people with "ill" intent. There must have been some reason this person assumed that you were in fact not buying the product for legal reasons. Maybe you were wearing a Grateful Dead t-shirt, maybe it was something more benign, like your tone of voice or flow of converstation. Point is, when you deal with people in this situation, you must convince them of your legitimacy. They should never have a hint of suspicion about you. In the past several years, I have almost never been denied anything I've tried to aquire. You must be able to play the character, you need some acting skills.

Amazing....Someone that realizes that even though it's unfair, it happens...people judge based on appearance or the manor in which you converse....I keep short hair, no piercings, no visible tatoos, and dress as the average person would, in the last 10 years I havent had a problem dealing with anyone regarding items that were of a questionable nature. When you stand out trying to be 'your own person', you open yourself up to discrimination and harrasment....sux but it's true, you should always have the ability to be like a chamelion, change your appearance in order to acomplish you goal. Learn a little about 'social engeneering'

Jesus christ you guys i dont dress wierd and i didnt talk with a suspicious tone. I simply informed him i was making MEA. Which i assume is ideal for growing mycelium cultures. This isnt about demeanor this is about not telling someone youre making MEA that simple.
