I pay for mine, currently NordVPN, though I've used others there without real issue. There's virtually always some deal or another with one of the reputable vpns, and if there isn't you only need wait a wee bit and there will be one. ( is a pretty decent overview and starting point)
I read this in Dilbert the book : > > Grab a handful of paperclips and find an office/meeting room. Shut the door and lie down on the ground with your feet against the door. Sprinkle the paperclips in front of you. Now have a nap. > > If someone tries to enter the room, the door will hit your feet. This will naturally cause them to pause (and stops them entering), it wakes you up and lets you reach for the paperclips which gives you a ready excuse ("Oh sorry, I was just picking up the paperclips")
GMOs are not a health problem , they are a monopoly problem. Monsanto creating new effective streams of GMO crops is fine, but extorting farmers year to year is. Listen to the pigweed killer from NPR.

LPT: get one of those portable air compressors you can plug in your cigarette lighter for emergency purposes.
I've used mine multiple times helping random people and my own car as well.
Just attach the air compressor line, turn on your car, plug in the compressor, chit chat with the people you're helping.
They always ask where to get that specific portable compressor so I'm pretty sure you fine Reddit folks will ask so here it is on amazon. *I am not promoting this product or being paid by them.--- Portable Car tire Air Compressor

Where did you find his "sources"? You say from /r/politics but I'm not sure what you mean by this. OP did not provide any sources.
Why did you mention the huffpo source and not any other source on the article? It wasn't the only one they used. They references several sources but you seem to focus on just the single one. It's almost like you're walking people down a path to fit a narrative.
For the huffpo article why did you not mention the other sources? The Hamilton 68 source just seems cherry picked and disregards the rest of the sources. Arc Digital (Medium) or WaPo were also used as a source that correlated with the information from hamilton 68.
>Now with that said, on the Hamilton68 site in the last 48 hours #walkaway has been used by "Kremlin related" accounts 131 times (for reference those same accounts have used #worldcup 51 times in the same time frame). That puts it 3rd on the list of accounts related to foreign meddling.
From the HuffPo article you linked
"Amplification of tweets by bots does not necessarily mean content is created by Kremlin-linked operators. But bots typically grossly exaggerate Twitter traffic — and influence — by replicating chosen messages tens of thousands of times."
As for the Hamilton 68 site I spent a minute looking up who created the site and found the author to be Clint Watts. who is a former FBI special agent and "a fellow at the Foreign Policy Research Institute and senior fellow at the Center for Cyber and Homeland Security at George Washington University"
This post feels like it's trying awfully hard to walk people down a path to make a very specific point. It completely ignores all other sources in the articles. It also brings up salon as a source which I'm not sure where they pulled that from in the first place.
When my dad was a kid (1950s), the top marginal tax rate was over 90%. When he graduated high school (1968), the adjusted for inflation minimum wage was over $11/hour.
Our nation didn't crumble. Quite the opposite. It's amazing how well an economy works when your citizens have money to spend. You could feed your family and buy your kids Christmas presents no matter what job you had. You took more pride in that job too, because it wasn't a second kick in the teeth. It made your life better. Today, it just feels like you lost the lottery.

I was back checking this and found this interesting tidbit of information:
"Mars orbiter The use of two different unit systems was the cause of the loss of the Mars Climate Orbiter in 1998. NASA specified metric units in the contract. NASA and other organizations applied metric units in their work, but one subcontractor, Lockheed Martin, provided thruster performance data to the team in pound force seconds instead of newton seconds. The spacecraft was intended to orbit Mars at about 150 kilometers (93 mi) altitude, but incorrect data probably caused it to descend instead to about 57 kilometers (35 mi), burning up in the Martian atmosphere."
Considering the amount of people in this very thread who are miseducated about diabetes, I think your comment is on the ball. People jumping on the shame wagon even though they don't know what they're talking about either.
Source: I am pre-diabetic (T2), my mother is pre-diabetic (T2) ,and my wife has been Type 1 since she was 5 years old. None of us are particularly unhealthy, my mom and I are actually very healthy and carb conscious, but we've never been able to kick the pre-diabetic a1c because genetics.
Being fat and eating shit doesn't = T2 diabetes. Eating a ton of carbs will stress out your pancreas, but two people with similar diets will have different results based on genetics. This is doubly true of T1D. You are diagnosed T1D because your immune system literally destroyed your insulin production. You can't even use stem cells to fix it because your immune system is the problem.
Diet and exercise helps with control, but diet and exercise helps with everything. It doesn't matter what you have, you need to control your diet and exercise to be healthy. Also, just because someone's diet works for them does not mean it'll work for you. Everyone has different needs and you should consult your doctor / listen to your body to find out what works best. Oh and btw, shaming someone never works. It turns you into the bad guy and gets the shamee to ignore your advice.
Also of note, there's a genetic link between T1D and Celiac disease. They both share similar triggers, which means two people with similar genes could develop T1D and/or celiac disease. If your family has T1D's, they might also have Celiac sufferers. My wife has T1D but her sister and father both have celiac disease.
Haha, so my wife saw me playing this a few days ago.

One year for Christmas my dad gave me a copy of Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover. My dad lost his house to foreclosure a few years ago and lives in a trailer. Throughout my childhood he had multiple cars, stereo equipment, and various other rent to own items repossessed. I own my own house, truck, and have had a stable job for 10 years with the same company. He told me "you need to read this, it helped me so much". No thanks dad, I got this.

The New One Minute Manager is a great book. In it the book talks about finding employees doing something right. We always look for and reprimand employees for doing things wrong. But never enough of complimenting them when they are doing it right. We just expect that and it's unfair.
It's a good short read.

Costco has a great reputation as a company in general. For employees, they are paid well, have good benefits, and are treated well. Plus their prices are good because they make deals with companies for exclusives - instead of regularly undercutting other stores on the same products, in addition to other good business practices.

I had a 1-inch keychain boxcutter on my keys that I wore for almost a decade. In the past year I've had to fly for work four times and then once on a vacation. This keychain went through every single TSA checkpoint without a second glance. The first few times I forgot, then I just kept doing it since they never seemed to notice or care, and if they ever would catch it I'd just say I forgot about it and have them bin it.
You know who finally caught it and made me throw it away before I was allowed in? Event staff at Blizzcon.
It's official: rent-a-security-staff in polos at a convention are better at catching potential "weapons" than the fucking TSA.

If anyone wants to read Emma's side of the story, she actually annotated the above fb conversation to explain herself.
I'm a current student at Columbia University, so I've been following this case fairly closely, and would like to say several things:
Again, I do not side with Emma. But I believe that both sides deserve to be heard, so for those interested, at least take a look at her annotated notes. You may still come away thinking that she is in the wrong (I lean towards this conclusion), but some of the vitriol in this thread is over the top.
The annotated notes come from this jezebel piece, which also includes the best 'updog' joke I have ever read. Seriously, read the whole piece.

I make my own beef jerky all the time. It's actually wayyyy easier than people think.
What you need:
Buy 2 pounds of some Tri-tip or another meat you enjoy.
Buy 1 gallon ziplock bags for marinating the meat overnight.
Decide on a marinade, I typically go teriyaki or bbq sauce with some spices. Be sure to use some brown sugar to thickin the sauce so it can stick to the meat.
Buy a dehydrator like this one: Nesco FD-75A Snackmaster Pro Food Dehydrator, White - MADE IN USA https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0090WOCN0/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_RDSlBb34SBFTS
Cut super thin strips with a filet knife or buy a meat cutter for optimal pieces. It's easier if the meat is half frozen.
Put all the cut meat in a 1 gallon ziplock.
Create the marinade, you don't need a lot since it's going to go to go in the ziplock.
Put the marinade in the ziplock, seal it, and mix it all around. Make sure every piece gets some.
Put ziplock bag in the fridge overnight. It's a good idea to move the sauce around every few hours if you remember.
After a night of marinating, place each piece of meat on the dehydrator.
Dehydrate for ~4 hours at 160 degrees.
Enjoy your beef jerky!

In case anyone is interested in the real answer: beaver was originally slang for a bearded man, based on the perceived similarity between the apperance of a beaver pelt and a beard. For reasons that hopefully are clear, this sense of the word drifted to refer to a woman's pubic region, especially one with a natural crop of hair (as one would expect to find in the early 20th century when this meaning became popular). Source.
Enjoy, it works perfectly fine and is everything you'd want out of a lyrics companion app. Free with ads (of which I haven't actually noticed any so far, dunno why). No iOS version though I believe, sorry to say.
If you're in a band or just care about lyrics, this is the app to have, it's wonderful.
I highly recommend Magic Actions For YouTube.
It has a whole bunch of options like setting the exact quality you always want to load, cinema mode, force flash or html5 player, options to turn off some of the features (comments, suggested videos), an ad blocker, a control bar with a bunch of options under every video, etc.
And it's free, of course, and the dev always replies to my feedback emails.
> Volunteering and tourism need not be mutually exclusive. I just hate when people depict a trip as being the former when in reality it's almost entirely the latter.
The reality though is that the volunteer work of these people is often a sham. I'm not speaking from personal experience, but a while ago there was a redditor who really laid into this, explaining how the 'volunteers' would build walls during the day, then at night actual construction workers quickly tear down their shoddy work and put a real wall in its place, just to create the illusion that the 'volunteers' were contributing.
His/her point was that unless if you've got actual skills to contribute (doctor, teacher, engineer) and stay there for an extended period (half a year or more) you'd help way more if you just stayed home and wired the money over. Otherwise you're really just a tourist in a special "feel good about yourself by helping the poor and destitute"-amusement ride.
Though I guess if the people there are making money of it, it's still helping the locals.
It took some searching but on request I found the links I was referring to:

Using this system gets me up without snoozing till the absolute last fucking minute every fucking day (seriously how did I live that way so long?! This is so much better), which gives me way more time to wake up and do activities before I depart.
I started the cup of coffee before my commute a year or 2 back (used to wait until I got TO work because free coffee) and I have never had my eyes droop since. I think the coffee was the biggest factor but I am so happy with the other changes I had to share.

I think NORD offers good all around functionality, doesn't keep logs, is outside 5 eyes territory, and is fairly cheap. Right now 2 years is $80.
A lot of people use PIA but I don't recommend that as they are US based but that's up to the user as to whether or not they are comfortable.
Another decent option is ExpressVPN they are technically 5 eyes but located in a British territory so it is kind of murky. PureVPN is based in Hong Kong so outside 5 eyes and works well for some users.
Most of these options have free trials to see if they work for your needs, try them out and look into them to determine what will work best for you.
Except our drone program is perfectly fine with killing 200 people to kill 30 or so targets. We already target civilians for the crime of being related to targets. This is basically an extension of what we already do.

The downside? The popularity of open source tools that do a great job become a target for intel agencies in the world to try and slip hooks into.
A couple modern examples include Vault 7 documentation of 0-day malware that was placed in VLC. Letter detailing VLC dev team response can be read here.
Notepad++ was another much loved program in this class that also had compromised resources in it. Again related to Vault 7. Notepad++ letter in response can be found here.
There is constant effort to develop tools to collect intelligence as an expected and necessary function of all governments. The more popular the program the highest likelihood of targeting. Without delving into ideals this is recognition of what-is.
From that basis, I tend to regard security as an illusion. We are always compromised. Early in internet history I came across argument to this effect. The best we can do for some security is to be a bit tougher to crack than the next guy. The common wide spread approaches will keep moving and attend to the softer targets with no locks on their door. There is security in being a ghost behind the scenes. With sufficient motivation, no one is secure.
VLC is great, and free, and with that popularity is an irresistible target. I've wandered off topic from that main point. :)

VATS is a kind of pause feature where you can select what target you want to shoot/hit, all targets are labeled and show a percentage of how likely you are to hit it.

>I was always a messy, cluttery person. If someone was coming over, I had to do a lot of cleaning to get it passable. Then, something weird happened. We put our house on the market.
>So we did that extreme cleaning, putting things in pods, blah blah that you do and made the house perfect. Then, people came to see it a lot, but it didn't sell right away (houses in our neighborhood rarely do.) But every day we had to keep in perfectly (like perfectly) clean in case someone wanted to see it that day.
>You know how they say it takes 21 (or however many) days to make a new habit? I guess it was enough that the habit stuck. We liked our clean house so much, we decided not to sell it. We gave away most everything that was in the pods. Now, just like they say, everything has a place, and everything is in that place. (Nothing ever had a place before, so you couldn't just put it up. All these decisions had to be made about where it would go.)
>It's life changing. I swear I'm less tired, less forgetful, more careful about money, more careful about what I eat. I don't know. It seemed like organizing my house organized my mind. I hope I never go back.

Reminds me of this book: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing
I listened to it over a year ago and we started putting those practices in place and there's no looking back.
It's amazing what decluttering and organizing does not only to your house but your mind.
And you're right, it will take many days to form the habit, but once you do, there's no turning back.
1) Ask for the ring back so you can get it cleaned/add more diamonds.
2) Pawn the ring.
3) Get a badass Master Chief armor.
4) Change your locks, phone number, etc.

TL;DR Reddit does not approve of r/fappening personally but does not remove subreddits based on personal feelings, which is why the subreddit was up for a few days. The reason why it was banned was because many of the pictures leaked were proved to be from celebrities when they were still minors and Reddit has a clear-cut policy against the hosting of child pornography.
You can set QoS to assign priority to certain applications, or mac addresses, or ports. For instance my QoS is set so that my Playstation gets priority over other traffic, because if I'm using that then I know I'm not actively using my other stuff and I don't want my downloads to create lag.

Yes and no, pi-hole works like a water filter. You put the filter (a raspberry pi running pi-hole) on the water pipe (your router) instead of each cup (each device). So when the water (internet) comes through it catches all the lead (ads) leaving you with nice drinking water.

disease (n.) early 14c., "discomfort, inconvenience," from O.Fr. desaise "lack, want; discomfort, distress; trouble, misfortune; disease, sickness," from des- "without, away" (see dis-) + aise "ease" (see ease). Sense of "sickness, illness" in English first recorded late 14c.; the word still sometimes was used in its literal sense early 17c.

No, this is not entirely correct. At the very least it's misleading.
If you have been prescribed an epi-pen the pharmacist cannot generally^1 substitute an Adrenaclick, because the devices are mechanically different.
You might respond that you should ask your doctor for an Adrenaclick. Sure, you should - if you know they exist. Normally this is one of the primary responsibilities of a pharmacist: to make sure that customers aren't getting screwed over by what one might politely call "sponsored" doctors.
Now, let's imagine that someone does know the difference, and does ask their doctor for the Adrenaclick, but the doctor say that the Epi-pen is the better choice (I'll let the reader imagine the many reasons why they might say this). What does the patient do? You can argue with your trusted doctor, or you can go to some other doctor, ie, not the doctor you've probably been going to for years, and trust this stranger instead.
Again, this is one of the reasons why pharmacists are important. They act as impartial arbiters. And, again, this is why what you said is misleading: in this case, the discretion of the pharmacist to suggest the cheaper alternative does not exist.
Both parents (retired) pharmacists.

Actually, fevers are considered moderate until 105F. Severe fevers will cause permanent brain damage, convulsions, and death when body temperature reaches or exceeds 108F.

You can buy a Raspberry Pi off Amazon for <$40 for a fast one, or <$15 for a slower one.
You download and install the software on a sim card.
Plug SD card into Pi.
Plug in Pi to power and network.
Get into your devices' (PC/Phone/Refrigerator/etc.) network settings.
Point the DNS to the IP address of the Pi.
(DNS is the internet phone book. By doing this, you're making a device constantly read the phone book, and erase a bunch of assholes from it before you read it.)

I checked https://haveibeenpwned.com/ and it said 4 data leaks. I have only heard of one of the four offenders (linkedin). With respect to the other three, how did they get the info in the first place? Did they buy it? Some behind the scenes entity?

He can't lose credits for any reason at all, he simply doesn't earn more credits. This changed things from yelling to things of reward. So instead of there being yelling and punishment, the house was a mad, it turned into a nurturing system. If he misbehaved "Oh well, you can earn some more credits tomorrow, no big deal buddy, new day new day!"
This is a great book on the approach: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0967050707/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 "Transforming the Difficult Child: The Nurtured Heart Approach"
Edit: oh also, he can spend the credits on anything. They convert to hard cash. 1 credit a day would be 1 dollar a day for doing all the right things. I didn't micro transaction, he had to be good for the day in school, got a credit, took care of trash or whatever earn .5 credit. I purchased monopoly money on Amazon so he had something tangible to take to his safe, I got him a little play safe, now he has a real one with real cash. So he could spend it on a movie, a toy, whatever. I didn't make him spend it on "daddy time" or whatever since that should always be free.
Edit 2: Ah deeper. He has over $2000 now and won't spend it. This system also taught him a valuable skill in money management. If he wanted something he had to remove his cash, he really started to hate that. As a result he saved and saved. $2k for a 16 year old is pretty darn good, $20 bucks a week is his max earning from me. Plus christmas money/birthday from people, I also reward him for As every half a year, $20 an A. Damn it's expensive now.
These guys give great advice. Like how they said I'd get better picture quality on my TV with this HDMI cord.

Some things are permanent on my credit score and no matter what I do, they can't remove it. Because of these things, I'll never have a score above 700. Trust me, I've gone through all the steps. Every process. Every subreddit for help. Every agency for assistance. I've sent countless reports and requests to Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. I've received multiple letters from my information being stolen from multiple places. I've had over 30 bank/credit accounts opened in my name by people other than myself. At one point, I owed almost half a million (~$450k) to accounts I never opened or used. I still "owe" ~$30,000 to some random company in Washington (a state I have never lived in). The $30k has been on my credit report for 8+ years now. I try to have it removed twice a year by sending removal requests to each agency. None of them have been able to remove it and the company says they don't have it on file anymore. In essence, I owe $30k to no one and it's hurting my credit score. This is just my life now. My accounts have been "frozen" for years.
According to sites such as "https://haveibeenpwned.com/", I've been "pwned" 26 times.
I know this from work, and we use Stripe to charge our customers. They have something for subscriptions called Smarter Saved Cards, which catches expired cards and gets their updated info to keep charging em. I would assume something like that is happening here.

With Obamacare I don't think insurance companies can deny you for a pre-existing condition anymore. Maybe someone else more knowledgeable could verify?

"Be totally and selflessly dedicated to our company while we work you to death and fire you the instant we no longer fancy having you around."
Dan Ariely in Predictably Irrational spoke about the two major kinds of relationships between economic entities, the social relationship and the transactional relationship. The social relationship is the typical hard to form, easy to break type thing, but allows for a ton of leniency and "favour doing" between entities when it is there. Transactional relationships are easy to form but have zero leniency. Like value is traded for like value, no favours or anything. If you don't have what I want, then fuck you, you ain't getting what I have.
Employers (and indeed most corporations) make every attempt to foster the social relationship so they can take advantage of the dedication from employees that comes with it, and then expect it to be permanent when they screw their employees (or customers) over time and time again with very transactional attitudes, like "no way you're getting the rest of the day off because your wife was taken to the hospital".
Note to employers, it's one way or the other. Foster the social relationship with your employees and enjoy a ton of loyalty and dedication, but expect to also be putting out favours for it. Or, keep it transactional, and do not be at all offended or surprised when your employee arbitrarily hands in their 2 weeks notice for something better for them.
Note to employees and/or customers of any company. Find out exactly how the company acts in this regard, and don't be duped into dedication and loyalty by a company with social rhetoric but transactional attitudes.

This movie was directed by Steven Soderbergh (Ocean's Series, Traffic, Contagion), and the shitty comments dominating this submission can be attributed to the mass commercial campaign promoting this movie. Yes, I watch The Daily Show too, and the Magic Mike advertisements are brash and absolutely pandering to the female demographic. But marketing reflects nothing upon the actual film. Remember the Donnie Darko trailers?
This sort of criticism reminds me of the conservative wingnuts who trashed Grand Theft Auto and Doom without experiencing either.
You realize that sometimes marketing doesn't accurately reflect a product? The film currently has a 72 on MetaCritic. From the SF Chronicle:
>Which brings us to "Magic Mike," a mix of comedy and drama that takes place in the world of male stripping. If it falls short of greatness, it's not by much - and it could end up growing with the years. At the very least, it is exceptional and one of the best and most original pictures to come along in 2012.
Nobody in this thread knows what they're talking about, and most of these reactions seem to imply an ugly level of misogyny and homophobia.
Pretty much the only ones I can wear.
Relevant quote from an amazing book Man's Search for Meaning.
"To draw an analogy: a man’s suffering is similar to the behavior of gas. If a certain quantity of gas is pumped into an empty chamber, it will fill the chamber completely and evenly, no matter how big the chamber. Thus suffering completely fills the human soul and conscious mind, no matter whether the suffering is great or little.Therefore the “size” of human suffering is absolutely relative." Victor Frankl
Learn about REM cycles. To oversimplify, you want to sleep for a certain amount of ~90 minute intervals so you wake up at the end of a cycle. If you wake up in the middle of one, your body isn't ready to wake up. It is actually better to get less sleep but with complete REM cycles than it is to get a ton of sleep.
Here is an app for your phone to help you start learning the concept.
You should probably use scopolamine (from datura) instead of acid. Psychedelics don't consistently bring about a bad trip for most people even with relatively bad set and setting. Deliriants like scopolamine and diphenhydramine (benadryl) in high doses bring about scary and bad experiences at a fairly consistent rate, especially with bad set and setting. You could also take the US government approach and inject him in the spine with scopolamine.
You won't be on the hook for the full amount. One of the regulations that came out of the Affordable Care Act was the implementation of Out of Pocket Maximums. The OOPM for 2016 health plans is $6,850 for individuals and $13,700 for families.. Your specific health plan may actually have lower OOPM's.
Inpatient/Outpatient and Mental Health are all Essential Health Benefits under the ACA and as such you won't pay more than $13,700 for the 2016 plan year.
That's a lot of money for any family, but it's not likely to cause a bankruptcy, which is one of the key benefits of the ACA legislation.
No, as far as I know the refund button never existed. I hate EA as much as the next guy, but all these posts about them removing a refund are total bullshit. https://www.pcgamesn.com/star-wars-battlefront-ii/star-wars-battlefront-2-refund https://thenextweb.com/gaming/2017/11/14/ea-battlefront-2-refund-remove/
That's about right, yes.
We are experiencing the growth of a two-tiered society, absolutely, and it's killing us. It is by far this nation's largest issue. And yet... we are arguing about brown people and the insanity in our political system where compromise is dead.
We have one party that has spent the last 40 years doing almost nothing more than making our disparity even worse, and it's incredible to watch 40% of our nation help them. Most of which are being harmed by those same policies... The beneficiaries of these policies is a small minority in this country, that is getting more and more powerful.
And her publicist never even said anything about wanting the pictures "deleted from the internet", she just asked one site (Buzzfeed) to remove some of the more unflattering pictures. Buzzfeed then put those photos front and center to get more readers.

There's a story in Victor Frankel's "Man's Search for Meaning" of a guy who has a dream that he know when the day of liberation and end of suffering is coming for the concentration camp. When that day gets closer, and it becomes clear he isn't going to escape he becomes more and more sick. He eventually dies on the day he thought he would be free. On the one hand he died in the concentration camp. On the other hand he did correctly guess when his suffering would end, it just wasn't in the way he had imagined.
This one is even better! And the reviewers back me up on this!!
It's not the upvotes directly that do it...
Reddit is a very popular site, in fact its so popular, Alexa ranks it 27th in the world, 10th in the US.
If you scroll down to the bottom, you'll see "Sites linking to Reddit". This is the important bit, which gives the entire site and each thread so much power in Google rankings. This gives links to reddit and links from reddit a lot of "weight".
The more people who link to it, or click a reddit link to the site on google, the higher up the ranking appears (these are obviously not the only factors, nor is the the whole algorithm) for a keyword or thread.
This is (part of) the basis of SEO. So while the actual upvoting doesn't matter, the more people who see it, the more who link to or from it, and the higher up in the rankings it goes. Reddit has awesome power.
LastPass extension. Secure passwords that you never have to remember (except for the master one). For mobile use you have to pay for a premium version but its something around $1/month.
Ninite is a free tool that installs and updates many/most of the standard utilities without the Adware that comes with the apps' normal installers. You pick all the different apps you want, and it downloads, installs, and updates the apps automatically. (Chrome, Firefox, 7zip, MSE, AVG, LibreOffice, Audicity, Team Viewr, Adobe Reader, Dropbox, BTSync, Google Drive -- pretty much any general purpose utility app you could want is on their list.)
It's an invaluable tool for setting up a new system.
