Check out the Snuggle Safe Pet Heating Pad on Amazon. I've a pair of senior cats and when it turns winter in the Midwest, they regularly sleep on these. Work great because you don't have to worry about fires or keep something plugged in - head in the microwave for a few minutes, and they stay warm for hours. About the size of a plate.
Cover your Assets is the highest rated product in the toys and games category on Amazon with an A+ rating on Fakespot and all organic reviews.

“No one really knows why pregnancy cravings occur, though there are theories that it represents some nutrient that the mother may be lacking -- and the crave is the body's way of asking for what it needs," Source
I will say, during my first pregnancy I craved red
meat. Like, greasy burgers in the middle of the night, big steaks, etc. which was weird since I’d always been a bit adverse to too much red meat. Turned out I was anemic and needed iron. My body was trying to find it somehow. Once I started taking iron supplements, the cravings were less intense.
Right now (6 months pregnant) I crave fat and sweets. I’m guessing it’s because I’m still nursing my first and growing a second baby—my body just needs calories.
Both babies are boys, btw. I’ve heard old wives tales about cravings being linked to the baby’s gender but I haven’t found them to be true.
My parents had a similar situation. My mom was diagnosed with Alz at 57, 6 years ago. My dad did his best, but sometimes dementia turns you into a monster. My mom was the sweetest person in the world-- would never hurt a fly-- but her frequent sundowning episodes, where she would get very confused and aggressive, left my dad badly injured toward the end and he couldn't care for her by himself anymore. She's still alive, but all the parts that made her my mom are long gone.
While this is very sweet, this is far from the norm for this horrendous disease. It destroys families. And if I can be selfish, I'd rather not see shit like this on a sub that's supposed to make me smile.
There’s this thing on amazon called the bubble hurricane for like $15 and it produces an uncomfortable amount of bubbles.

This exactly. The issue is that most men don't ask for 50% custody.
I see that this thread has devolved into anecdata about terrible mothers who used the court system to cut out fathers from their children's lives. I have no doubt that these things happen, but the point is that these are far far from the norm. Most custody arrangements are settled out of court, and most result in mothers being the primary caregiver because father's opt out.
The way to change this is to encourage fathers to be more active in their children's lives. Take paternity leave when it's available, take a lesser role at work in order to spend more time with their children.
>Can an Italian explain what's so wrong about this?
Nothing really wrong, but the whole point of eating spaghetti is to have long thin noodles.
There's hundreds of other types of pasta, in all shapes and sizes which you can just dump into the water.
>do you just wait till the submerged bit is soft enough for the rest of the spaghetti to be forced in there
No need to force anything.
If you properly place them in a circular pattern, they'll smoothly sink in at the same time in half a minute.
Imagine a video on a timeline: the video is on top, and the audio is on bottom. You can of course just straight-up cut both the video and the audio at the same time then place another clip next to it, but for a soother way to make video, J-cuts and L-cuts are essential and fun to mess around with.
An L-cut is when you cut a piece of video, but the audio is not cut until later (an example is when he says "aw look at THAT" from one clip on 0:05, and the audio sort of lingers on from the first clip despite the cut to the next).
A J-Cut is the same thing, except the audio of the next video comes first, THEN the video appears. (0:13 when he says "I don't think he's dusted there for months" from the next video clip despite the previous clip lingering on for about a fifth of a second).
They're called that because when you visualize each cut on a timeline, they kind of look like a J and an L.

I had a bubble blowing mat similar to this one when I was a kid that made this happen whenever we used a bit of soap with it lol. I assume there's cheaper / easier ways to recreate the effect though.
I saw her too I sat at the coffee shop on the corner and watched her for a while, except instead of a cute little girl a creepy old guy was dancing/hitting on her

You are right, babies can easily get it. What I meant is that is not so much of a problem for people (excluding the immuno compromised) as the symptoms, if any, are quite mild. However, it can cause much more severe problems to fetuses, and as such is more of a concern for pregnant woman.
I'm sorry you're going through this. No one deserves that. You are more than the circumstances you've been put into.

On android i prefer "Sync" for reddit, by far.
And a note for everyone: on PC these specific types of videos on reddit tend to be muted by default, so you have to unmute them manually.
Im Brazilian and I didn’t get it until I saw one documentary about him. It has a movie with Tom Hanks too. Two things in the doc really got me. 1. He received a letter from a blind child saying that in one episode he talked about having a fish on set, the letter asked if he was feeding the fish. From that moment on, he would always say in the episode “I’m feeding the fish now”. 2. The link say it better than I could: http://www.openculture.com/2019/02/when-fred-rogers-and-francois-clemmons-broke-down-race-barriers-on-a-historic-episode-of-mister-rogers-neighborhood-1969.html .

Seeing as they have a 51% profit margin I would say they can afford it. It certainly would not bankrupt them. Plus, a slight raise in price is something I and many Americans would be willing to pay.

When I say "VPN" I mean you have to set up your own VPN server, probably through AWS Lightsail or similar. And then you have to configure your phone to route all traffic through the VPN. You should then be able to feed all the traffic through PiHole from the VPN server.

I can only afford tiny places and it's very cool to have the apartments mapped out on my phone complete with windows, doors and power outlets, so i can see which one will be more comfortable to live and fit my stuff into.
These aren't the ones I originally had, but they work pretty well too! There are a few more on Amazon, but any art store or something like that should have them online at least.

At least in the US the only outlets that have a wall switch that children could possibly reach are things like lights. It's not common to have the outlets controlled by a separate switch, they are always live all the time - which is why we have baby proofing products like these.
We have fuse boxes that you can kill the electricity to entire sections of the home but children don't stand a chance to get to those.

Are you on mobile? The official Reddit app sucks and does not support sound on embedded videos. You should install one of the third-party apps instead, as they have this and many other useful features the official app lacks. I recommend Boost for Android, and Apollo for iOS.

Ah. I understand. I'm not much of a video editor myself but am lucky enough to have the Adobe CC package available to me for a limited time, and their tools are really good tbh. I just personally find them expensive. I would recommend looking into YouTube videos on the subject and reviews of different editing software. For image editing to make images for use in a video, I'd honestly just recommend GIMP. There are plenty of tutorials online on how to use it, same goes for any video editing software out there :D

I met a deaf lady with 2 or 3 young boys, while waiting at a bus station for a 5 hour trip. I was about 15, at the time. The boys were racing around making a racket and people were glaring at her. She was reading a book. At some point one of the boys went over to her, tapped her on the shoulder and told her something using sign language. She answered in sign language. At that point, the people waiting for the bus, including me, stopped being annoyed.
After the bus trip, I was catching a train. She and her boys were on the same train. She could read lips and she wrote her replies to me. We chatted for the next few hours until we reached my destination. She still had hours left in her journey. Her older daughter had been in an accident and she was taking the kids to go see her. I had her notes for quite a few years. I lost them during one of my moves over the years. I've always wondered if her daughter was okay.
I learned the alphabet when I got back from this trip from an encyclopedia. I then had to go to the library to get a book about sign language but none of my friends were interested in learning to do it. I still know most of the letters, but I never learned any 'whole word' signs.
I decided to check into this after my initial post and found out there's an downloadable app for this. It translates text and audio into sign language!
If I can figure out how to download it to my phone, I'll start carrying it with me as the information on the app says, "There are over 466 million deaf and hard of hearing people in the world."

I have no idea how much truth there is to it, but Wim Hof claims his breathing method can positively influence your immune system, the types of antibodies you produce, and reduce inflammation.
He talks about it in detail with Russell Brand in this podcast, and his app, available here, coaches you through it. There are some more advanced bits that you have to pay for, but the main breathing method coaching is free. They also have a sale on for the paid parts to encourage people to use this as a tool against Covid-19.
Like I said, I don't know whether it works or not, but Wim Hof cites a lot of science and is very passionate about this being used against the pandemic. It may not work, but it's worth a try!

So these nights are gone!

I would dispute your claim about seizures and SSRIs though. The study here found that of 150,000 people being treated for depression, 617 had a first seizures, so about 1 in 250 which, from a medical point of view, is quite high.
Furthermore the study seems to suggest that SSRIs, while generally the most effective treatment, actually have a higher risk of causing a first seizure

There's a whole population of mentally challenged who can't get it together to take advantage of a shelter. Shelters are good for the people who can use them, but there's a lot of un-addressed need in the extreme Autism community these days.
