last night internet wasn't working, that sucked. woke up and found a different access point though so i assumed my sister changed the name and password for some reason. her computer keyboard/mouse was missing as well. had to bring up my own peripherals to log in the old 192.168.1.1 admin:password to get the wifi password. when she came home just now she told me why the stuff was changed and why the keyboard and mouse were missing. she said yesterday she checked the internet history and found that her 10yr old daughter was using some weird app to pretend to be a 17 yr old boy and for the past 6 months had an online relationship with another 13 yr old succubus. sister is freaking out thinking her daughter is a lesbian now i guess and so permanently banned her from the computer

Sounds more like some crazy catfishing kind of thing, maybe as trolling.
The fact that she is 10 makes it all the more crazy.

People are scary sometimes, and stuff like this highlights why trusting people on the internet is not a good idea, and that children need to have what they do online monitored by their parents.

Hard to believe she was able to pull it off for 6 months, but then again I remember how thirsty 13 year olds can be. The power of (lady)boners makes anything believable I guess.

It came yesterday, and it was $25 actually. The image was horrendous. I thought I got gyped, but then I disassembled it. A small lens in the middle was backward. The objective lens was backward. There was dust. All the lenses were filthy like someone wiped his ass with them. But it's all cleaned now and perfect.

Pretend other people don't exist. If someone tries talking to you respond to any questions with one-word answers if possible and don't engage beyond that at all. If someone keeps trying to to talk to you while you do this they're either autistic, extremely self-absorbed, or trying to virtue signal by being friendly to a non-norp. For the first two you can just ignore them and nod when you hear them talking until they go away, the the third will give up pretty quickly.

man the egg over rice did not turn out well tonight. rice wasnt hot enough, the white part was still slimy. it was like eating rice with snot all over it, felt like throwing up a few times but i got it down. i think this is why they only put the yolk in perhaps?

 No.223666

>>223665
A common thing to do is to drop the egg in on top of the rice, and leave it in the cooker a bit, so then the yolk is still runny enough to blend but the egg has cooked enough to not be raw.

 No.223667

>>223665

If you want to do it the Japanese way, you just take a raw egg and crack it over warm (not hot) Japanese rice. Make sure the egg doesn't cook. Since you should use a fresh egg, you don't have to worry about Salmonella, and people here enjoy the 'snotty' texture. I'll be honest, I kind of do too. Don't like it? Make an omelet.

It makes a quick snack, and if you want to change the flavor then you can add some soy sauce, furikake, or natto. Actually, there is a seasoning brand that makes a powder specifically for 'egg over rice'. The Japanese name for it is '卵かけご飯 (Tamago kake gohan'’ or just 'TKG'.

 No.223669

watch your tone! you're talking to the egg over rice king here. i'm kidding, but i had it for real in japan before, and also coincidentally it on the food's holiday. that time the rice was really hot, egg was room temp, and there was plenty of rice in the bowl. this one time however i was too hungry to wait so nothing went correctly, didn't fully microwave rice, didn't have enough rice, and the egg was ice cold

 No.223670

>>223667

I live in Japan, so I have TKG as a snack every now and again, since there are microwavable rice packages that make it really easy to make.

To clarify, by not hot, I meant not hot enough to cook the egg. But yeah, not enough rice can turn it into a gloopy soup.

Have you tried other Japanese snack foods? Like roux-based curry rice, お茶漬け (ochya tzuke), ねこまんま, or the different kinds of 汁 (shiru)? These quick recipes always help me when I'm hungry and too lazy to make something proper.

I'm glad you had fun at a festival, since people are getting less welcoming to foreigners in touristy areas nowadays. I don't think it's a 'get out of muh country' globalization issue or anything like that, but people are just desensitized to foreigners.

I would highly recommend buying Japanese curry rice roux, then (pic related, but not me). The stuff here comes in little cubes in a box package, and you basically break pieces off and throw it in a pot with some water and veggies/meat. You can make a full pot of hearty stew with no major effort, and honestly it's really gratifying to make, almost like you're cooking in the olden days.

Otherwise, theres a ton of easy Japanese food you should try! The premade stuff isn't healthy, but the easy traditional recipes are.

Recently my gums have been getting inflamed even though I brush my teeth a lot and floss regularly and just got them cleaned by the oral hygenist. I've had more white fuzz than normal on my tongue so I think I've got too much yeast in my mouth and that's what's causing it. I think the super strong stannous flouride toothpaste I was using actually made the thing worse because it apparently kills off all the good bacteria that your mouth needs to keep the yeast from overpopulating. I'm trying some probiotics for the mouth now. You just chew a tablet and keep it in your mouth for a while before swallowing. If the packaging can be believed I've already unleashed 12 billion living bacteria in my mouth. They will have to conquer and displace the yeast but I will give them constant reinforcements. Begun, the microbe wars have.

There's a surefire cure for this. Eat very spicy peppers. Every day. I'm talking about cayenne pepper & up, in enough quantity that you get the runs. It'll be nasty, but the really spicy peppers are like an atomic bomb on body yeast and they'll kill that evil shit in no time if you eat enough. And cut down on sugars in your diet. I had a bad yeast problem and that's how I cured it. Btw if you do it and get a sore stomach, have some powdered ginger. Ginger is another good natural remedy.

Do Neurotypicals Hate Us?

The question has to be asked – do NTs actually hate us?

You have to wonder, all the barrage of vitriol that is so often thrown our way. The ‘cure or kill’ brigade with their ‘autism as monster’, ‘autism as stealer of children’, ‘autism as fate worse than cancer’, etc, etc, ad nauseum propaganda, certainly seem to hate us. The autism ‘experts’ with their “if autistics do it, it’s pathological, wrong and bad, if NTs do it, it’s normal, good and okay” bias, also often give the impression of hating us, behind their cool masks of supposed ‘objectivity’.

There are ‘hate autism’ parents and their organisations who spew fear and loathing at us every chance they get. Bluntly calling autism an ‘epidemic’ of ‘brain damage’, they furiously label autistic advocates as ‘sad and deluded’, ‘attention seekers’, ‘nuisances’, a ‘noisy minority’ who are ‘hijacking’ or ‘trivialising’ autism, etc, etc, and of course as ‘not really’ autistic because we can talk (and therefore can’t speak for the non-verbal, though how then, those who aren’t autistic at all can, defies logic), even claiming that we are somehow ‘out to harm’ the ‘real’ autistics. I can think of at least one prominent ‘anti-autism’ parent (who shall go unnamed) who actively trolls autism websites, spraying his hate messages – which includes homophobia as well as neurophobia (hatred of autistics) – around at every opportunity.

There’s also a compliant media, who for the most part tamely rehashes all this negativity anytime the ‘autism issue’ comes up, the many professionals who make no effort to understand or offer any meaningful support to their autistic students, patients or clients, employers who refuse us even the smallest accommodations, workmates who never miss a chance to dump on us, the family members of some of us who react angrily to just about everything we do, and last but not least the general public who either don’t understand or don’t care or just seem to want us to go away, disappear into some wormhole in space… Need I go on?

I feel there’s more than one thing going on here. One is classic xenophobia, a human reaction to anyone ‘different’ and/or ‘strange’ which has been around since our ancestors lived in tribes in caves, and had to be wary of any strangers who might muscle in on their hunting territory, or even attack, kill, rape or enslave them. And autism – at least as a diagnosed condition, in large numbers and hugely visible – has only been around for a little while. So there’s that factor, which can eventually be overcome, just as non-acceptance of gays has been largely overcome, at least in the Western world, at least partly by gay people coming out in fairly large numbers - and thus becoming ‘familiar’, no longer ‘strangers’. We can become ‘familiar’ too, in time.

Another factor is a failure of NTs to understand themselves. Their responses to the world and other people are largely subconscious, automatic, intuitive and so quick they don’t even realise it’s happening, they ‘just know’ things. And because they don’t even realise there is a process happening, they don’t seem to get that it isn’t happening for us, that we’ve had to learn consciously, intellectually, and slowly, what they take for granted. Instead, they assume we know the ‘rules’ and are deliberately flouting them, being rude, arrogant, selfish, insulting, etc, etc; and react angrily to that.

And yet a third factor is the belief of many autism parents that they are entitled to a ‘normal’ child, and that it’s a huge affront, a violation of their ‘rights’, almost a crime in fact, for them to have one that isn’t. This is not an inference by the way, many of them outright say so, in very forthright terms that go way beyond ‘grieving’ into ‘grievance’. Their concern seems to be not for the child’s welfare, but for themselves. It’s as if they have this expectation of what their kid should be, how their child should reflect well on them, boost their social standing – so if their kid looks unlikely to ever be a cheerleader or football star, be ‘popular’, go to a prestigious (or any) university, bring home trophies, etc, etc, in short, if they have a kid they can’t show off, this is a ‘sin’ in their eyes. How this ‘I have a right to a normal child’ belief evolved, I’m really not sure, but those who hold this view consider themselves not only entitled to such a child, but entitled to do anything at all that will change their ‘deficient’ or ‘abnormal’ child into the one they believe they should have had from the beginning. They swing into action, blasting the child with every weapon at their command, and blasting too anyone who might have a different view of autism. They seem to hate autism because it disrupted the life they believe they are entitled to.

One final factor may be simple ‘demonisation’. Every society sooner or later creates a Bogeyman - a whipping boy, scapegoat, hated ‘other’, Foul Thing, an Evil Enemy who sole purpose is to unite folk against it. I believe to many Big Bad Autism has become this kind of ‘nasty’, a thing to be resisted, fought, overcome, obliterated, crushed, smashed and wiped out of existence, no matter what effort of time, energy or expense that entails. It’s the Big Bad Bogeyman who threatens education/health/insurance/etc budgets, ties up resources that some believe would be better used on ‘real’ people’s needs, ‘intrudes’ into and complicates ‘normal’ people’s lives unbearably. That there might be anything worthwhile to autism, or that autistics should be allowed to simply be autistic, is akin, in these people’s eyes, to saying ‘Hitler was a nice man’.

Wow. When I put it all together like this, you truly do begin to wonder… Yes, thankfully there are many NTs who aren’t like that, who accept us as we are, who are even our allies, for which I say a big ‘Hallelujah! It’s just that there are so many more who aren’t, who spread these messages of doom and gloom and hatred… it’s mind-boggling. However! Call me a hopeless optimist – but I do believe that most of this is due to simple fear and total ignorance. If only we can overcome that, educate people, we will have won at least one of the many battles facing us, and hopefully gained at least some new allies in our fight for human dignity and equality. For sure, right now we’re so far ‘out there’, getting such bad ‘PR’, that we’ve got little to lose by going for it.

I really don't like autistic people, I have severe social anxiety and am really sensitive to body language and what not, my interactions with aspergers in highschool(I was in a lot of tech classes) was uncomfortable and made me fearful of coming to class at times because I was too timid to deal with them, I feel like they would often trap me when I just wanted to be alone but they couldn't take the hints because I was too shy to tell them outright, they'd also often get really close to me or say rude things which made me feel scared or bad due to my anxiety, I don't care if they don't know any better I'd rather not have to deal with them

Same guy here who was talking about Japanese food, but since I like this thread and the subject derailed…

>>223716
I'm sorry if they made you uncomfortable, but translating that to 'I don't care what they feel like, I don't like them' is also rather apathetic. I think your negative encounters was a combination of their social unawareness and your inability to directly inform them of your situation. While this isn't your fault, you should understand why it isn't theirs either. If anything, wouldn't your social anxiety be even more reason to be aware of their struggle?

>>223712
I can see both sides of the argument. On one hand, it is true that for a lot of NTs dealing with NDs is difficult to say the least, and often uncomfortable. But it's also important to understand that if the other person can't comprehend body language, its not their fault either. While glorifying neurodiversity isn't exactly healthy, demonizing it isn't either.

Most autists are incapable of empathy and don't care about anyone besides themselves. They're usually also barely capable of speech and are always yelling or humming or doing really annoying things. They're tolerated like children except they're worse than children because they never learn. The high functioning autist is extremely rare and is treated no differently from anyone else except for a mild dislike and desire not to spend time with them because of how they conduct themselves. They're just annoying dicks because they can't understand how what they're saying affects others due to the lack of empathy and will just go on and on about whatever lame ass shit their autist brain is obsessed with or say extremely rude and mean things without a second thought as to how it would affect someone. With autists there is no give and take, they just take take take. No one owes you their affection because you were born mildly retarded. If they hate spending time with you because you're an unlikable asshole then stop whining about how everyone is being so unfair to you by not liking you. It's not your fault that you were born an unlikable asshole, but it sure as shit isn't their fault either. No one hates or demonizes autists like they hate mexicans or gays or jews, we just don't like you because you're unlikable people.

Just about all of this is very false and sounds like a erroneous conclusion you have come to after one or two negative interactions.

Not only am I autistic, but I have been around hundreds of others to have directly observed their behavor, and directly interacted in the corse of classes and events (long story) with people on nearly all ends of the spectrum.

What specifically do you disagree with and why?

I will admit that the ability to empathize increases the less on the spectrum an individual is and that many are not wholly incapable of such a thing, but it is a persistent feature of the disorder as is mental retardation and being non-communicative or throwing tantrums due to sensory overload. Autists are just incapable of socializing normally so it's unreasonable to demand that people enjoy socializing with them as much as they would with a normal person. It's not like you can choose what you do or don't enjoy and normal people don't enjoy socializing with autists for a variety of reasons. Autists are not persecuted nearly as much as other groups who are different because social norms demand people be nicer to those with disabilities. You're acting like autists are seen as some sort of monsters that need to be exterminated in society when mostly they're just ignored because engaging with them is not pleasurable. Sometimes additional pleasure can be gained from the interaction by teasing or something like that and it does unfortunately happen but I do not think it's nearly as bad as other forms of discrimination which have much lower social protections against. Autists are just outcasts, stop trying to make that into a worse fate than it is.

Tonight I was on the bus, heading to the supermarket to get some things. The bus driver says that the next stop will be the least stop, and everyone will have to get off and go onto the next bus to continue along the route - OK.

So I get off the bus and I figure I'll just start walking along the sidewalk path. Everyone else who got off the bus stands and waits for the next bus. I'm walking and this guy way up sees me and decides he's going to be big; as I pass him, he purposely and deliberately puffs out his chest and moves into my way, pushing me clean off the sidewalk. It's obvious what he was doing. Because I am weak and ugly looking I am used to people constantly messing with me and being aggressive toward me when I leave my house; names, laughing and pointing, sucking thier teeth, snorting, leering, etc. Usually I to well in ignoring it but I decide to say something this time - probably because I've been very irritable lately.
I turn around to face him and look him in the eye; he stares at me for a moment and says "Yes?", in this smarmy kind of way. I say "What are you doing?", he says "Waiting for the bus."
I walk away. I'm pissed.

As I'm walking I decide that's not going to be "it".
I catch up to the bus he got on, look him in his eye and sit right by him, trying to look sort of tough. When he gets off the bus (in a couple stops), I get off aswell, follow him across the street and confront him.

I say "Hey dude, you kind of got in my way back there". He goes "what?!". What followed was ten minutes of aggressive back and forth. He tried to deny that he was trying to start anything, I tell him that "he knew exactly what he was doing", he says I'm crazy, yadayadayada. He even tried to change his answer and claim that he was crossing the street (first he said he was "waiting for the bus"). He starts yelling about how he isn't going to fight a little kid (I'm ~20 and look neotenous, he was 40 at the most). He definetely would have beat me in a fight and at one point he said "what if i had a knife? what if I had a gun?" (I replied "and what if I did?"), which I agree was a good point. Eventually he walks away muttering, I scream at him to "get fucked". My voice sounded shaky and sad during the whole thing, which was annoying.

I was still angry as fuck after that and felt like my energy was way too high so I actually started jogging along the sidewalk - something I never do - for awhile in my heavy coat. I think my test surged aswell because I felt sort of strong afterwards; I actually felt the urge to chat up a succ - something I never do (inb4 "crab").

One the one hand I feel somewhat bad about the situation - not because I feel I was wrong but because I feel I was stupid. This behaviour is completely, completely out of character for me as I am usually reserved, calm and unassertive (schizoid) and that isn't the type of person I want to become. If I am going to start blowing up on every single person that "disrespects me" I know I won't fare well. I feel like following him and picking a fight was immature.
On the other hand, it's a positive development in the sense that this is the first time in any memory I can conjure that I have ever stood up for myself in a situation I was being messed with or "disrespected". Usually I get angry and say nothing, then go home and feel sad and victimized later. I thought I would feel disgusted with myself for "chimping out" and getting aggressive and passionate like the incident would be a permanent "stain" on my self-view, but honestly? I feel, sort of, good about what I did - like I've unlocked a new power, like I don't just have to imagine standing up for myself anymore, I can actually do it. Additionally no one got hurt, and I feel like I learned a lesson out of it.

that sounds really awkward and scary, I guess if it made you feel better it's ok though, personally I don't look at anyone in real life, I just keep my eyes low, watch hands/feet and make sure no one is following me, I'm also 20-something weak and andro/highschooler looking, pretty sure literally any guy over the age of 18 could beat me up if they wanted to

I find most guys are jerks though so one guy being a jerk isn't that upsetting to me because it's just one of many guys that are jerks

you did better than I would though, usually the tactic people try to use with me when I try to be assertive is they tell me that they can't hear me and that I'm speaking too softly when I'm pretty sure I'm being loud

I have been thinking about the huge chunk of time I have wasted on imageboards, and before that bbs.
The thing that I noticed is the reason I keep using them is that they aren't complete waste of time. It is like a slot machine. Most of the time the lever is pulled and nothing good happens, but every once in a while the lever is pulled and a win state is reached. Lights flash and treasure dramatically is spilled forth.
It is now that I take stock and notice that I always come away with less then I started and rationally I should use my time on something that is less likely to feel like a waste. But I have been using them for over a decade. There are glimmers of real enjoyment. I don't really want to totally stop using them even if in theory it could be a net positive in my life.
Maybe I should strictly set limits for how much I use image boards.
I don't really know.
I'm just want to make sure "I get my money's worth" out of this life. Most time spent on image boards is feeling more and more like a waste not just in hindsight but now I feel it during my time on them as well.

I was trying to find a business on google that someone told me was in the same building as another place I knew about. I searched and searched on google trying to find it but to no avail, so I finally called up the business in the same building to ask them if they knew the name of the other place and they told me it, but then I googled it and I still couldn't find the thing, even with the name and address. It was just really weird. I went to white pages, yellow pages, still nothing. Then finally I tried a spelling that I thought was probably wrong in google and it says "did you mean correct spelling" then the first result was a hit on superpages that finally had the phone number of the place. I swear the corrected search phrase was exactly the same as the one I had just typed. Technology is weird yo.

I've felt the same way and have already almost totally eliminated my use of the internet save for just a handful of websites, including this one.

I have tried to go as far as to totally eliminate my use of the internet and focus on my bovine existence of past-times (reading, art, puzzles) and self-improvement, but find myself drawn back for the fact that the few websites I visit are my only socialization; they are the only places that I can find and enjoy the mental sympathy of other who are more or less like myself - and despite that my need for social and emotional context is very sparse, it is there.

I find the best balance is to focus on my analog activities and routine for most of the time, and enjoy ocassionally reading boards once or twice in a month, as desired, as a refresher. Sometimes you enjoy it, sometimes you won't. Eventually you find that you aren't missing anything by taking long breaks and you enjoy the balance.

The problem is that you are searching for fulfillment in browsing these sites, rather using them as a supplement, and making yourself sick of them as a result. It's like looking for nourishment in ketchup or barbeque sauce, rather than the meat and potatoes.

I love my vacuum sealer. I used to overeat because I didn't want to waste my food but now when I am full I toss it in a container, vaccum seal it and enjoy it the next day.

One thing I always wasted was rice from chinese food. It tastes like complete ass the next day so I never eat it. Vacuum sealed it tastes exactly like it did when it was first delivered. Very nice.

#1 thing I like it for is the storage of lettuce. I like having lettuce for sandwiches but you have to buy so much of it at once that it always goes back before I use it all. It also gets gross a few days after use. Now I just toss it in a vacuum container with some loose paper towels at the bottom and that shit is stays good long after your non-vacuum sealed lettuce has started to rot.

I just looked it up. Apparently there is a small chance that you can get food poisoning if you eat rice that has been sitting out all night. Also this is only a problem if the rice is boiled. The rice is 100% safe if it is pressure cooked.

Literally all you have to do is stick the rice in the fridge and you are good. People have been eating old rice for decades and there has never been a rice related epidemic.

I like here. It's comfy. But I'm not from the US and I realized that I can't write about things that are too local to my country. Nobody would be interested and it would just annoy people. I wanted to write that I want to read books written by some author who is internationally famous and popular but not from the US, and the reason why I wanted to read his books is probably partly because I'm from the same country as he is. (I saw someone mentioning his books and that made me want to read his books. Things I see are often very local.)

I have been trying to find a place in the English world where I can write about anything, but I realized it's not easy. Twitter seems to be a good option, but I'm reluctant to create an account.

Today was surprisingly eventful.
Took my bike in for repairs and as I was walking back found some dude collapsed on the ground.
Asked him if he was alright (reeeee rule 3 violation).
He was like "nah, you got a phone because I can't make it".
From what I gather he was walking home and his vision went blurry and he collapsed and couldn't get back up.
So I called 911 for him. Ironically him collapsing right in front of the cemetery gave a good landmark so the emt could find us pretty easy. Oddly enough as soon as the emt got there some succubus came out of nowhere to delay them in order to find out what was going on. Fucking succubi. Anyway after they dealt with her they finally got to dude and started helping him out. Probably the heat got to him. It was hot as hell out there today.
Then I went to this place called steak and shake. Didn't have steak. Had what they called steakburgers. Which were meh. Would have preferred a cheesesteak. But they were reasonable in price and not bad. Just weren't mind-blowing or anything. The milkshake was pretty damn good though. I think if I go there again I will just skip the food and just order a milkshake.

Only thing left to do is get some sleep to be ready for work tonight. Hopefully no more eventfulness today.

Why are you listening to a very low quality vegan troll on any sort of health matter?

Men do have estrogen, it's vital to your body. If you get too much T you get bitch tits from your body trying to balance it back.

Beer bellies are masculine as succubi gain weight on their legs, hips and bust as a primary location. Men tend to get it more round the belly area. Father Christmas is a masculine figure and has been for centuries.

I just ate my vacuum sealed Chinese food. I am not dead. The smell that comes out once you release the seal is so overwhelming. The smell is so powerful and fresh, I love it.

Anyone who is thinking of getting a vacuum sealer, I would recommend getting containers. Containers are perfect for short term storage. You can take whatever you want out of the container and then reseal it.

The bags are better for long term storage because they require you to cut off material every time you want to reseal them. Bags work well for meats, but containers are good for things that you do not want to crush, which is just about all leftovers. However, putting vegetables in bags are amazing if you want to freeze them. NO ice crystals form on vegetables in bags, making them preserve perfectly. Just stick the bag in some hot water to thaw it and then break the seal to get fresh af vegetables months after you froze them.

simulating an universe wouldn't be that difficult because you can do a shit load of cheating. If no one is looking in my closet there is no reason to render it. The doors shut, no one can see inside it so it can just be left unrendered until the door is opened. And you don't even have to render it in real time. If I'm living in a universe that runs at 1 fps or 10,000 fps it's all the same to me within that system. Someone living inside a time distortion will continue to experience time the same way from within.

We don't know the rules of the universe yet. We know some basic stuff but the real meat of how it works we have no idea and it appears to be so complex it looks like magic to us now. We can't know if the speed of light is a true hard limit or if it's just the limit for primitive civilizations. It could be that this is just level 1 of the universe and once you unlock the tech tree level 2 opens up with a whole new set of extremely powerful mechanics.

I don't think processing speed would so much be an issue since as you said you could just simulate it really slowly. I think the real problems would come from power consumption, managing the heat generated by such a massive operation, and ultimately managing the size of the memory required from the computer so that it doesn't collapse in on itself and become some kind of star or create a black hole or something.

I will just assume you would need at the minimum 1 atom to store 1 bit in memory(it would probably need much more than that since you would need atoms for 'wires', non-conductive atoms to isolate it from other nearby atoms, and atoms for managing heat) already it would be unfeasible to simulate maybe even just the earth on an atom by atom basis. Just the amount of data needed to accurately store the very precise values of location and current momentum is mind boggling, especially when you consider how precise it would need to be just for cellular life to function. Who even knows how many bits of memory would be needed for the xyz position of each atom in order for it to be that precise, and there are numerous other bits of data that would be required for each atom as well. The amount of mass required to even simulate earth on the level of individual atoms would probably exceed that of the sun.

While all of that could probably be simplified down quite a bit, I think we would almost surely witness many more "glitches" than we are able to right now. But it seems like the only real glitches we can observe occur at the subatomic level.

Quantum mechanics isn't the end all of physics, though. String theory is a pretty satisfying theory that fixes all the weirdness with quantum mechanics. String theory is extremely elegant by saying particles come from energy excitations in space, and there are only a few particles because our space-time only resonates on specific frequencies.

The only reason the quantum world is so damn complicated and confusing is because we use particles and electromagnetic waves to observe our world. Kinda hard to take measurements of things that make up the larger particles that we use to observe shit.

The confusion comes from the fact that most people aren't scientists, they don't learn physics or any real science in government school. So the common conception of what "energy" means is extremely vague and it's just assumed to be some sort of invisible power that, lol i dunno, just makes things happen, like it's The Force or some shit. When someone talks about "energy" 99% of the time what he means is essentially magic. It's the same reason people call their phones "smart" and need to have electrical hazard warnings stated in terms of high voltage. For all the crap about how we live in such a scientific age there's not a lot of scientific understanding going around.

I actually did kinda go into a rant about how people hand wave away shit in physics by using terms such as energy and fields, but I deleted that portion of my post.

I guess by energy I did mean strings being a fundamental particle, but we can only really tell these particles exist because of measurements that we call energy. The "string" particles in string theory come from perturbation theory, which is some complicated shit that I can't even remember without looking at textbooks. If you go further down the rabbit hole it is just theories on top of other theories, which gets confusing as all hell. If I am wrong about anything I would rather just have someone tell me why instead of just trying to act all smug.

It's been 6 days now and it's finally starting to look a little better. Not so much pus came out today and I can touch the tip of my finger on my palm which I couldn't before it was so swalled. If anyone have this and is not sure about daily squeezing and hurting your finger to drain the pus out everyday, well, I did it and it's getting better. All I did was keeping it clean and drained the pus every morning.
Also, another piece of information, Paronychia is the most common type of infection on the hand and it's specially common among restaurant workers because they have their hands wet all day and their job let them prone to hand cuts and such. Did I also mentioned that pus some times just oozes out of the infection while you're doing common tasks like grabbing a plate? I'm pretty sure restaurant food must have a high pus content in them. So now I have an extra excuse not to go to restaurants. Not only it's expensive and the food not worth it, there's also a high chance you're getting an extra nasty sauce you didn't ask for.

Why are people so against "Reddit Spacing"?

I have seen Reddit comments and they don't really look like this. So I didn't really understand why this is called Reddit posting.

So I did some googling and saw a 4chan imgur explaining. Basically when you press enter on Reddit it just makes a new sentence not a new paragraph.

But that assumes the intent is to keep all ideas in 1 paragraph as on Reddit. When really I like pressing enter at the completion of each thought. I want it spread out and not in a paragraph.

I think the image board format is more suited for "Reddit spacing" as people just want to bounce from 1 bullet point to the next. 1 complete idea to the next. They don't need thoughts to unfold in paragraphs like they are reading a novel.

It is just easier to read.

It is one of those things where in the short run sort of, but in the long run it actually does the totally opposite in being a distraction the worsens focus. Because of how addictive it is, it really isn't worth the very small temporary benefits.

>As in, you still get an addiction even from 1 a day?
Yeah, nicotine is surprisingly extremely addictive despite how mild it's effects are. It is one of those drugs that really fails the cost benefit analysis. Usually very casual cigar smokers can avoid addiction because of how infrequently most smoke, but consistently doing it once a day is enough for it to cause problems with dependency.

>I don't really have any major focus issues but it's always nice to have a boost if the investment is small.

Caffeine and similar light stims in reasonable amounts is probably what you are looking for. Which is why I suggested tea. It has enough to give a little but noticeable mental boost, but not enough to cause jitters. That plus some sort of exercise to clear the mind at the beginning of a task is something that works well in my experience for focus and boosting productivity.

When that phrase is used it's almost always regarding boosting someone else's productivity for their benefit with no personal return, in which case you're right. In this instance though we mean boosting our own productivity, allowing us to do more of what we want to do.

>>224608
Why wouldn't it be allowed.
Some of us actually like or want to do things rather then sit in a funk hating life but fearing death, or whatever /dep/ does with the majority of it's time.

For example many of us have hobbies, where a increase in productivity would be quite personally satisfying.
A personal example for me is I have quite the backlog of comics and manga to read. A boost in focus so I can read full issues or even books without too many breaks would boost my productivity and increase my net happiness for the day (unless what I am reading that day is shit).

I don't do it before each thing I do (well outside of some basic stretching) but I do lift weights and run a few times a week and I think it's had a positive effect on my mental state in general, including focus.
