i lost one of my best friends and dota teammates to something similar about 2 years ago.
if dota keeps you going than keep dotaing. but also please try and seek help. you're important and i'm willing to bet people value you more than you know.
i can't vouch for any of these services but maybe one of these can help. https://lifehacker.com/top-10-free-and-affordable-mental-health-and-counseling-1788814933
if you ever think about stopping, remember the two rules of dota. keep the winstreak going, and never end on a loss.
i hope you get better.
I think this is mostly confirmation bias and it's easier to lose track of the amount you're drinking when you switch up drink types. It's pretty much all just about the amount of alcohol consumed minus food/water to compensate for it.
I just googled, and yeah it's a myth.
So it has to do with your drinking behavior when you personally mix drinks if that's your experience. And/or confirmation bias. Mixing types of alcohol doesn't change the physiological processing of alcohol.
TIL: The difference between streets and avenues is directional... neat
After learning that info... went to the ol' Google to verify and found this pretty interesting article
If this is your first protest here are some basic pro tips:
Be prepared to be arrested. It hasn't happened to me yet but it's a possibility. Write your contact numbers in permanent marker on your skin along with a local attorney number (many places offer pro bono for protesters so look if you can)
Pee first. Bring water/sunscreen/ comfy shoes. There's a lot of standing.
If you bring a sign put it on thin sticks. Holding it above your head for hours SUCKS.
Do not start violence first. There may be people trying to provoke you to violence. This is what they want. Do not fall for it.
That said most of the marches I've been to have been fine. People bring their kids. I've been heckled by shitty wannabe hitler youth once. The police started kettling our group once. That's the worst I've seen.

I'm too lazy to look up the source, but there was some study (that's perhaps adjusted for inflation since) that found in the US $75K/yr was the magic # where happiness and wealth seperated. Under $75K every extra dollar made you happier, over it, not so much. This post sounds very much like that idea in action.

If you want to stop advertisers from tracking you, Ghostery is the last addon you should be using. Switch to uBlock Origin and enable Disconnect's Malvertising filter list.
A first step is here, where you file a change of address form for someone else but write in "Moved, No Forwarding Address" in leiu of a forwarding address.
Second, find out who the postmaster of your area is. The station manager (person in charge of a given post office branch) will know who this is and should provide you with contact information. Call them. Tell them what's happening. Station manager will be chewed out for, you know, not doing their job.

But really what you should consider is saying:
I see you have concerns about our children and i will continue doing my best to address these. I will ensure they are bathed, take care with their classes, and make sure they get exercise/outdoor time. However, I will do this while still playing a game that fosters critical thinking, uses math skills, and encourages creativity.
She expressed ZERO concern about the game itself and just about how their time is spent. Sounds like she is jealous of the time youe kids enjoy playing with you.
I hope this helps. Good luck.
The "hook-em-horns" method of wrapping the cord to your headphones. Yes, I still have wired headphones because they sound so much better than bluetooth headphones, and the battery never dies.
Regarding the antiperspirant, you should actually be applying it at night for maximum effectiveness. If you apply it at night, you can wash it off in the morning and it will still be as effective.
It has personally been a game changer for me - I don't even wash it off in the morning (I'm a night shower-er) and my clothes never have any residue and don't get any stains.
Throwaway because this isn’t my typical wheelhouse of responses/forums but I felt like responding.
I’ll be pretty blunt. Not looking to get into a debate but here’s my two cents and maybe it’ll be helpful.
Echo what others have said, “getting laid” and having a partner is almost certainly not because of your looks. Forming romantic relationships (which honestly is really the magic, not the sex itself but the concomitant intimacy) is complicated and difficult for many people and saying “I’m ugly that’s why” is, sorry to be harsh, a BS copout. Plenty of incredibly unattractive people have rewarding romantic relationships. Also, it seems from your other posts that you are a teenager. That’s how it is for many teens— different people have different timelines for this kind of thing and the sooner you are able to accept that and work on being the best version of yourself the better off you’ll be in the long run.
Get help from a professional if you actually are serious about changing your situation and not just complaining about your situation. Good resources here. I suggest listening to this Reply All episode on the founder of the original incel movement— this person didn’t start it out of hate but the group got away from them and devolved as many things on the internet do. It’s not that you can’t find support on the internet, but it also is easy to spiral behind a computer. Good luck.
Invest in a heavy duty cooler then to mimic refrigeration at the bare minimum . Better than getting on meds for high blood pressure and diabetes, for sure.
Salad is easy to prepare, and possibilities are endless. You can even hack the rice cooker, turning it into a crock pot, etc. Here’s a good start for reference.

Flamethrowers. There's no federal law concerning private flamethrowers or flamethrower-like devices, only Maryland has banned them, and California requires a permit if the flames reach over 10 feet. Honestly, they have a ton of uses in rural areas, that's why my friend's dad has one on their family property out in the country. I am kind of surprised though that there hasn't been some irrational public panic about flamethrowers yet; I guess we have been lucky with the wackos not exploiting them as much. Urban areas still often have municipal codes on "open flame", but other than that, possession is fine, and use is often fine too.
Look how much time he saved. Fucking guy is shaving seconds off his commute. Totally worth it.
Having a 50+ min commute to work in traffic has really made me into such a chill driver. I see people constantly switching lanes, accelerating hard back and forth, blah blah blah. Then 30 minutes later we're at the same light after the traffic breaks. I sat in my car listening to a podcast chilling in the same lane while they tried to sneak into every gap they could. Fucking pointless stress.

The whole thing's a giant troll operation. Doesn't really matter whether it is a white power symbol or an OK symbol, right now it's a troll symbol. You lose if you tolerate someone flashing racism on national TV, and you lose if you take the bait and accuse someone of racism when proving intent conclusively is basically impossible. Same kind of dilemma you face with any online troll, really - the point is to ruin the discourse, not to make a point.

There is a definite approach, nay, art to progressing through the run-around circus. For a great tutorial, check out this article from lifehacker: "<em>How to Contact Executive Customer Service and Get Your Problem Solved</em>".
I am not affiliated with the site, article, or author, but found it very helpful and am therefore comfortable recommending that you give it a quick read at least.
From the sidelines, it can all seem like common sense, but the article describes a calculated approach that I probably would never have had the patience to fully execute without some guidance and/or reassurance.

Here is a lifehacker article on it:
> Put simply, if you see the "USDA Organic" or "Certified Organic" seal on your food, the item must have an ingredients list and the contents should be 95% or more certified organic, meaning free of synthetic additives like pesticides, chemical fertilizers, and dyes, and must not be processed using industrial solvents, irradiation, or genetic engineering, according to the USDA. The remaining 5% may only be foods or processed with additives on an approved list. Photo by Sheri.
>"Certified Organic" isn't the only label you'll see though. You may also see "100% organic," which means all of the ingredients must meet the guidelines above, or "made with organic," which means that the ingredients must contain 70% or more organic ingredients, the USDA seal cannot be used anywhere on the package, and the remaining 30% of the ingredients may not be foods or processed with additives on a special exclusion list.
>Violations of the USDA's organic labeling rules can earn companies civil penalties of up to $11,000. If that seems small, it should. The low penalties and the volume of organic products flooding the markets have led to skepticism that the USDA is properly enforcing the label, inspecting foods, and punishing violators. Some worry that "organic" has turned into a marketing term with little meaning. Still, when you buy organic goods at most stores and from most known brands, you can be largely sure that it meets the guidelines.
Don't put your keys between your knuckles! It'll damage the webbing between your fingers and make you open your fist.
> if you must use your keys to fight, try “closing a fist around it with the sharp edge coming out the bottom or pinky side.”
> if someone is close enough to poke with your keys, you’re probably better off pulling their hair, scratching with your fingernails, and going for their eyes.
More advice for using keys in self-defense. I think the consensus seems to be that rather than holding keys the right way you should probably get a kubotan - a little handle to put on your keychain - or a real self-defense thing like pepper spray. But even an empty first is better than putting keys between your knuckles - please don't do it!
Obligatory not a male, but I’m a female with a very strong gag reflex (which it sounds like you have) and any minor smell or texture can throw me into a gagging fit. When I go down on a guy, I always pinch my left thump down (see photo in link) because I’ve read that it gives your brain something else to focus on other than gagging.

Expiration dates are mostly made up..here's how you can tell if an egg is fresh.
Fill a bowl with cold water and put your egg in it. If it sinks and lays on its side against the bottom of the bowl, it's still good. If it stands on one end and "points" towards the top of the bowl but is still touching the bottom, it's good, but is about to go bad. If it floats, throw it out.

Yes but. The way our ISPs have acted in the past, At least here in the US, the reason we are worried is because it wouldn’t be put past them to make internet like cable. Verizon throttling Netflix to get money. This happened while net neutrality was in place.
>Once again, I feel a lot more confident pointing out the problem than suggesting solutions. But I think we could do a lot worse than the <strong>basics that Vanessa Marin lays out</strong>: talk about yourself, not your sexual partners; don’t talk about other people’s bodies or in-bed preferences; recognize the difference between sharing because you want advice or support and sharing to get attention or entertain; treat others how you would like to be treated (and because I can picture a younger, dumber version of me saying that maybe I’d want her to be talking about me to her friends, I’ll add “Consider male-female power dynamics in our culture, and how sex is one of those things where people judge women by different standards than men.”).
This seems like some good first steps to begin to untangle this cultural wide phenomenon.

Do this ASAP. DM if you have questions.
I remember learning about this so found an article that could explain it better than I could after a hard day at work. Its a short article if you want to read it. The main bit is below
"The basic reason we're so irritated when we overhear a conversation is because the conversation hijacks our cognitive functions—it's a distraction that we can't do anything about and we can't get away from:
If you only hear one person speaking, you're constantly trying to place that part of the conversation in context," Dr. Galván said. "That's naturally going to draw your attention away from whatever else you're trying to do."
It is also a control thing, Dr. Galván and her colleagues said. When people are trapped next to a one-sided conversation - known nowadays as a "halfalogue" - their anger rises in the same way it does in other situations where they are not free to leave, like waiting for a train.
bunsofsteel_MRI_boy, I want to thank you for this contribution.
I'm not going to tell you that you're wrong, because you are not wrong, but this advice aims lower than the solution we've already found and shared here.
Yes, razors dull from rust more than use. That's correct. But here are facts you are missing:
water has a high surface tension, and only the larger droplets of water will be jarred into splitting and coming loose by tapping the handle, the smaller droplets will remain and cause rust
moisture from the shower remains in the air long afterwards and will continue to condense on the blade if you leave it in the same room you showered in
any stuck solids (hair, soap or skin cells) on the blades will create a trap where more water can remain adhered to the surface, so rinsing the blades clean first is quite important
For the above reasons, many of the most frugal among us have already found a superior method of razor blade storage. Storing the razor blade-down in a small glass of mineral oil accomplishes the following: (1. buoyancy and fluid tension push the lighter water molecules to the top surface of the heavier oil, away from the blade 2. creates a total barrier to room humidity 3. keeps the blade oiled for smoother shaving 4. helps prevent minerals from tap water from collecting on the blade)
You think one month is good? Try 6-9 months for a single blade. Mineral oil is super cheap too and has a lot of lubricating uses around the house.
Wow, rubbing alcohol should definitely not hurt at all in your ear... sounds like you may have a punctured eardrum. I use rubbing alcohol all the time to prevent swimmer's ear.
It's a pretty common practice for a lot of swimmers and has never caused me any pain, even if I pour in a little more than I intended. If it hurt you at all, I think going to your doctor is a very good idea.
Listen, if I don't do 20 over the national speed limit, I'm gonna get to work 30% slower. God forbid I do 60.

This is a non-issue.
Credit unions lack the financial backing of government. It also has advantages in freedom to implement infrastructure that credit unions lack as well. This covers up the problems with credit unions pretty well
If nothing else, more competition in banking is a good thing, and it has the added benefit of a more direct line of accountability from the public.
Also I find the use of "eerily" to be...loaded language.

I think deodorant is a product that eliminates odors. Hence de-odor-ant.
Antiperspirant is something that prevents(?) sweating hence anti-perspir(e)-ant.
Colognes, eau de toilette, perfumes, etc are fragrances and their strengths listed in this article.
It could be that deodorants contain fragrances but their main goal is to eliminate odor more than adding a scent. Are there odorless deodorants? I don't know.

So, doctors actually don't set their own individual fees in the way you're suggesting. That's why the procedures are coded-there are suggestions from medical insurers and Medicare about what the fee should be, and charging too far over or under can result in serious charges for the doctor.
I'm graced to live in a country where I wouldn't pay these fees, but they are still coded and the country health system still reconciles them the same way.
Here's some more info if you're interested
Considering the complexity of the care you're receiving, I'm not surprised with the price you were charged, personally.
I feel like a bit of an asshole writing this but I used to struggle with this a lot and my number one tip, regardless of what you're buying people, is you need to be thinking about this stuff all year, not just in the run-up to the holidays. I've been using this Google sheet from Lifehacker for years at this point. The instant you see something and think "x would like this", no matter how trivial it is, that's a potential gift. Write it down. If your SO/friend/family member starts a sentence with "I wish I had" or "I hope they have", write whatever they say down, even if it's something vague. When the end of the year starts to roll around, you can start eliminating stuff that's too costly or that you've changed your mind on. It can be really easy (by December 1 I usually have 50-75% of my list solidified), but I think the trap is thinking about it as something that only exists in the last 2-3 months of the year.
and you can also consult Lifehacker's Will It Casserole?
FYI the reason you're still "surprisingly fit" is your metabolism hasn't slowed down as yet. Check back with us in 2 or 3 years. If you doubt this, ask the older males in your family.

That's shady as hell. I was just reading new job paperwork yesterday, and it specified that if a customer asks for personal info about a coworker, get a manager. But remember, HR is not on your side, they're on the company's side.
At this point, between HR being screwy and your clear need for a protective order, you might want to get legal guidance. University law schools usually have free law clinics, or your area might also have a low-income legal access clinic. Try calling your county's court clerk office; since they have to handle lots of low-income divorces, they usually know about local legal aid options.
Great post man, I have also had a handful of creepy/odd experiences that I don't often talk about (besides my wife or close friends).
For anyone out there that hasn't done some of this already,
Setup another email account/buy a domain and use that email vs your personal account/the account thats tied to your channel.
I RARELY will reply to anyone making me an offer/promotion/product offer etc from a non-business email account - If it's a GMAIL, Yahoo, Hotmail etc I will always assume they are fishing for my private info.
If people are going to send you stuff. Get a PO BOX or a business address... cant state this enough.
Take 30 mins and work on removing your personal info from sites like Whitepages.com
As OP mentioned, be VERY mindful of where you're recording so that addresses are not listed.
Great topic man, I'm sure there are a bunch of other suggestions others have as well. Would love to hear more.

So, random guy on the street probably doesn't have a beef with you. No real harm in them seeing your plate #. But this is the internet. Anything you post is archived forever.

Point is, you don't want to put any kind of information out there to make it easier for them to track you down, including plate #s.

A tracker is only going to be useful if you care about it. Trackers don't work for me as I have no investment in preventing blanks (the Seinfeld Chain Method), and no emotional attachment to the activity of filling in the squares, despite it being a version of a micro-task. It really comes down to what motivates and encourages you, and it sounds like you are perhaps in the same camp I am, namely that gamification really doesn't work, or doesn't work as well as it seems to on others. I have to drag motivation out whole-cloth from willpower to get into a flow state. Boxes on a grid have no power for me. When you dig deep down, what really motivates you? Focus on how to use that in whatever form it is.

I read the CEO of Evernote's "life hack" in 2013 and never went back: https://lifehacker.com/5982051/im-phil-libin-ceo-of-evernote-and-this-is-how-i-work
> My best life hack is actually the opposite of a shortcut and certainly doesn't save any time. It's pretty awesome, though, and makes me much happier and more productive in the long run: I don't work on airplanes. I sleep, I play Minecraft, I read (non-work stuff), I watch movies, I daydream. I don't work. It's great. Makes me look forward to that 13 hour flight to Japan! I work at every other time, though. Sure, I lose some productivity on airplanes, but getting rid of all the pre-flight dread more than makes up for it.
Knowing I can just sleep on planes is awesome. If I get upgraded to business class on a 12+ hour flight maybe I'll decide to do some work because I get bored but not planning on that plus basic time management means it's rarely necessary.
A couple months ago I planned to work ~5 hours of an 8 hour flight and the plane's wifi went down.

You're right, and I'm a shimalama-ding-dong.
Which it's obvious.
No more posting when just waking up.
I just follow actual trainers on YouTube and was like "f you saying they can't record in a gym" but I'm sure they got permissions and don't take up 4 machines to record 2 hour "workouts".
My bad. Lol
> that I did not have a legal obligation to write Return To Sender on everything.
Yes, you don't. But you can and probably should.
Further, read this, and do it for all the previous residents. It should stop the first class mail (not junk mail, sadly) from coming to the letter carrier's case (where they put together their route's mail) in the first place.
Tämä on taas näitä myyttejä, joiden levittelijöiden motiiveja voi vain arvailla. Euroopassa hanavesi on juomakelpoista lähes kaikkialla samaten kuin Pohjois-Amerikassa, Australiassa, Uudessa Seelannissa ja Japanissa:
Jäähän tietysti suurin osa maailmaa listan ulkopuolelle, mutta Eurooppalaisesta näkökulmasta katsoen ei Suomi tuossa suhteessa ole mitenkään erikoinen. Jokin aika sitten oikein Yle uutisoi suurin otsikoin, että Suomessa on maailman paras vesi. Väite todennäköisesti upposi kuin veitsi voihin enemmistöön tämän maailman parhaan maan väestöstä.
Crie uma rotina 24h com hora pra tudo: vagabundear na internet, bater punheta, assistir tv, aprender X, fazer Y... depois separe um minutos pra dar uma volta ao redor de casa, pode inventar uma desculpa pra comprar algo, levar o cachorro pra mijar... ajuda pra caramba. Com o tempo vc acostuma a sair aqueles 10 minutinhos de casa e depois pode ir adicionando "desafios": ir numa balada, barzinho, show, evento, feira... nesse mês. Falar com uma pessoa aleatória, duas, três... no outro mês.
Se tiver muito difícil pode tentar tomar um remedinho com algum psiquiatra que ajuda, cara. Muito. É uma muleta e quando não precisar mais é só largar.
Na internet ta cada vez mais dificil socializar pq a gente tem tanta distração, tanta gente "disponível" que acaba não criando nenhum laço de verdade. Eu me identifiquei e solidarizei com vc, mas tô baixando um porno noutra aba e brigando com um desconhecido noutra. Vc merece alguém de verdade que te dê atenção, não um aleatório como eu que irei esquecer de vc nas próximas horas.
>Personally, I think you save water and electricity by hand washing your dishes
The water part is actually not true and hasn't been for awhile. The electricity part is probably true
According to the source they cite, it's because

Tictac boxes lids are designed to give out one single candy at a time. To do so you turn the box upside down, give it a little shake, tilt, and gently open it.
I'd also highly recommend upgrading your roasted root vegetables with a combination of jams and spices. It hits all the sweet and savory tastes with literally 3 ingredients. Additionally, this helps to break the typical meal monotony so common in diets.
Sample recipe: Carrots + Orange Jam + Caraway Seeds = boom goes the dynamite.
Not Ghostery. The company which owns and develops Ghostery has close connections with a lot of ad companies.
> Ghostery is owned by Evidon, a company that collects and provides data to advertising companies. It has a feature called GhostRank that you can check to "support" them. The problem is, Ghostery blocks sites from gathering personal information on you—but Ghostrank will take note the ads you encounter and which ones you block, and sends that information back to advertisers so they can better formulate their ads to avoid being blocked. The data is anonymous, and Ghostery still does everything it promises to do to protect your privacy.
I spend about 30 min in the morning getting my head together and getting a to do list together, going through emails and voicemails and prioritizing what needs to be done.
I only work w one file at a time. If something comes up as a priority, I'll reach a stopping point and switch gears.
Everything on my desk has a place.
I only touch papers once. If I get transcript in for example, or other loose papers, I'll put them where they need to go.
I write notes by hand, it helps me remember things. I use a lot of sticky notes. If I get important info over the phone, I always have the other party send an email so I have a paper record.
I only have an inbox and an archive. I use outlook, and my inbox is sorted by flags. If something needs doing I flag the relevant email. This pops it to the top of my box, and I work the flagged emails in reverse order (earliest first).
If I need to find an email I'll just search my inbox. All our recruitments have associated control numbers that I list in the subject line or email body so I can pull the relevant emails with one search.
The method is outlined in detail here. https://lifehacker.com/empty-your-inbox-with-the-trusted-trio-182318 I've been doing that for about 10 years now.
If I need to focus I put on headphones. If I really need to focus I'll turn them on. If I'm super busy the phone goes to voicemail.
Finally, I use Fridays as a day of administrative catch up - closing out case files, scanning paperwork, etc. Also housekeeping.
Hope this helps. It works great for me.
Illegal ghost phones
Edit: In my world lots of people buy shady phones from shady pawn shops (already activated and on a plan no one is planning to pay for so it will soon be cut off) which is the illegal bit.
Depends on what they plant as well, even well meaning General Mills screwed up on this: https://lifehacker.com/don-t-plant-those-bee-friendly-wildflowers-cheerios-i-1793370883
The horrible flavor isn't because of the mint, but because of SLS. It kills your sense of sweetness and enhances bitterness so when you drink OJ it's just a sour bitter mess. Citrus + mint is actually a great pair in my opinion.
Lifehacker has info on how to opt out of most "people finders." I'm not sure where they get their info, though.
Meanwhile on Android... You can actually choose which one you'd like most.
e: you can't use Siri on Android. But you can choose to use Cortana on a Pixel phone.
Konichiwa, m'jou-chan tips lid

Handkerchief and napkin is somehow, to me, splitting hair. I usually just pack two different cotton "dish towels", one for food and one for whatever comes out of my face.
What I found super useful and versatile is a piece of furoshiki wrapping cloth. From a mat to packaging to a make-do towel... pretty handy.
In this instance, you'll set it up on the rpi running, usually, raspbian. There are plenty of tutorials.
You'd clone the git and install pihole.
Here's one walk through
If you have an old computer or laptop lying around, you could install Linux in there and run it.
This isn't true. You've been able to use Messenger without having a full Facebook account [for over three years](https://lifehacker.com/you-can-now-use-facebook-messenger-without-a-facebook-a-1713715943).
Apparently small ice crystals form in the tissue and rubbing the affected area can cause the ice crystals to damage the tissue further.
