just overheard someone conflating alternative medicine and experimental medicine

one is believing crystal energy will cure your ailments and will definitely kill you

the other is ingesting GMO bacteria that produces lactase so you can eat dairy products without issues, which has a slightly lower risk of killing you

my plan so far:
* 3d print the stamp
* grease it up
* press it into some spackling paste
* pray it doesn't crack when drying
* remove the stamp
* wipe away most of the excess grease
* fill the mold with some cheap epoxy that claims to handle 120 C
* wait for it to set
* crack the mold to release the epoxy
* wash away remains of spackling paste with water

Amazon Sweden automatically translates the word mold (as in a silicon mold) into mold (as in what you find growing on old food)
