DIY personal lube

Hello /diy/. I might finally have sex. We're both virgins so I expect dryness.
I make my own liquids for my electronic cigarette so I thought why not make my own damn lube.
Oh and this will just be for simple vaginal sex with a condom. So it will be water based.
I have 3 ingredients.
1. USP propylene glycol
2. USP vegetable glycerine
3. Water (for personal use - boiled bottled water, if I'm going to start selling this then aqua purificata)
These are all very cheap to get if you know the right place (farmers market).
What I'm aiming for is an astroglide clone. The only missing ingredients are polyquaternium 15, methylparaben, propylparaben.
The parabens are for antiseptic purposes which are not neccesary. They include those because people are concerned about yeast infection due to possible sugar synthesis from glycerol. But studies show that most cases just correlate with people who already are prone to such infections, This is not the case for me (I think).
I have no idea what polyquaterium 15 does. My theory is that it modifies the physical properties of the lube as in it adjusts better for the skin but I have no idea. I think however, that it can be replaced with something else.
Now what am I concerned about.
First of all I need a good ratio between the ingredients. I guess most of the compund is composed of propylene glycol then water and glycerine the least. Glycerine itself gets very sticky, quicky dries and can tear the condom but it adds a kind of slickness to the whole thing. Propylene glycol adds a great deal of wetness and slipperiness but by itself wont work.
Another thing I want to avoid is too much hyperosmolarity because that could irritate the insides of the vagina. I'm not sure if I should consider adding a bit of salt to make at least the water part saline.
Also in consideration is the pH of the lube. Healthy vagina flora has the pH of around 4. It might be possible to add a bit of citric acid to balance the pH from the neutral 7.

After growing up around skilled labour and diy mindsets, does anyone else thing "post apocalyptic" films are total bullshit?
Within months, even the most basic rednecks could convert their cars to woodgas (pic related). People could easily build waterwheels as a temporary measure if they couldn't get hydroelectric plants working. Even if we had local warlords, places with no government like Somalia still set up communications infrastructure and have community laws. Most modern surgery just requires an anasthetic and basic tools....
I just don't see what part of modern day infrastructure either couldn't be substituted or removed without things remaining mostly the same, if with a little less luxury. There is no reason to have someone wandering across a desert with a dog and no food, or hiding in a fortress with medieval technology.

Hey DIY, I've done a little research, and I want to convert my N64 controller to work with a pc. I've never done something like this before, and a lot of the articles I've found say you need to reprogram the board and change out the hardware, but are also for older systems and for use with other games. It would be hooked up to a standard usb 4.0 port, windows 7, and used for n64 based games such on "Project 64" emulator.
TL;DR: Tips, tricks and advice for modding my N64 controller for pc use.
Fuck off mods, this is DiY 4chan post.

I need a man, man,
I am young, probably too young.
Life is shit, complaints and all that boring shit.
I need a guy who can help me escape and all that and that will help me get through life, at least for a while.
Just reply for more details on myself I guess. Just hope this shit works.
Also I am a degenerate drug user and a psychotic bitch.
I guarantee you, this will probably be the best life choice you can ever make.
Unless you found a way to give yourself a handjob.

So anyways I thought id contribute some DIY to this board... got this viewsonic monitor that wouldnt turn on... light turned blue then went to dim red then would flash and do nothing. ok. time to take it apart. upon removinf the cover and then the metal cover over the electronics, its obvious I found the issue. power board has several, as in like almost ALL of the capacitors leaking and bulged.
ok so not a problem, check thru my small collection of capacitors... and goddamit, not a single one I had would work.
ok, time for ebay. search board numbers, monitor numbers, looking for repair kits. holy hell I found one. awesome. threw 10 bucks for the kit (capacitors, solder, solder wick) and free shipping... few days later parts arrive
replace each bad capacitor with precision (sorry didnt take pics of every step of the desolder and resolder process)
pic related what board looked like before repairs
