Ok but you didn’t need to go through this to decide you’d trial taking 200mg.
(Isn’t that the dose most people take anyway?)
It still doesn’t make any sense. This seems like some pointless thing someone who just had 1000mg of Modafinil might do :confused:
Thanks for the heads up.
I’ll be checking in every few days and probably not posting anything.
P.S. If I do post anything, it’ll probably be a meaningless post or a deep conversation in the shallow end.
P.P.S. As usual.
It's a test for Alpha/Beta/Omega - you've just gone and made something up!
Edit: I got Gamma.
You are the adventurous one. You've probably moved multiple times in your life or jumped from job to job. A restless soul, the pressures of the traditional lifestyle don't bother you. You'd rather be...
That’s another book I’m gonna endorse in this thread (The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying by Marie Kondo).
There’s a lot of fluff and weirdness, and I think her ideas on possessions are only about halfway there; however, the book is worth the time and money invested solely for learning how best...
Some fairly low effort tips to make your slow cooked stuff taste gooder because in all honesty, that ribs and veg combo sounds pretty gross and I feel kinda bad for you having to eat it:
Don’t just throw your ribs or whatever meat in a slow cooker. Fry it in a bit of oil on at least...
This was really surprising to me.
I think most of these are from my first couple of years on the forum.
I don’t think I’ve mentioned anything architecture-related for ages. Yet, apparently it’s all I talk about.
Other favourite topics include smoking and dexamphetamine, two drug habits I...
There’s a variation on this where you can sign up for a service (I think stickk used to facilitate it, not sure if it still does) where you can stake your money to be donated to an anti-cause—something you don’t want to donate money to—like neo nazis or the KKK or whatever. Then when your friend...
I did Sam Harris’ 50 day meditation course a while ago. It was really good. I was already a regular meditator, but I gained a lot of good new habits from him and broke some bad ones. I recommend it for sure.
It’s a subscription service though. After the 50 days, you can do daily meditations...
Im not a mod and this is just a guess, but I’d say it had something to do with his incoherent posts...
Rule 1 (don’t be a nuisance)
Clarified in 2nd post with “Largely incoherent posts of excessive length” cited as nuisance behaviour
@Thurlor So you're here for a sanity check?
No. A history of being bullied does not excuse a bully for their actions. At most, it displays a reason for why they are behaving as they are, but that in itself does not excuse them. Far from it. It indicates there is a problem that requires action...
Meditation doesn’t need to be spiritual. I did it every day for well over a year without it once being ‘spiritual’.
I’ve also been to Buddhist temple to meditate, and even then you can just do everything except the prayer. It’s such a small part of it. It might be like <5 minutes out of 6 hours...
I got mistaken for trans-woman this week. By doctors and nurses. In a hospital. I have a full beard and no distinct feminine features whatsoever. True story. I hope I was at least hated with equality.
Y r u flirtin with me u fkn creep?
That’s a good training ground. Teachers are good practice mentors, but imo pretty worthless unless they are major players in their field.
Def recommend building peer relationships too. You can leverage each other.
Just thought of something else I read somewhere and was a game changing idea...
I currently have 3 mentors. I’ve also had several in the past. Of my current mentors, one is my boss - a trailblazer in my field (I’m his 2ic); while the second is a senior leader, who is extremely experienced; and the third is another senior leader, who is a walking encyclopedia. It’s really...
Great summary @redbaron
Can confirm it’s been apocalyptic for nearly 2 months now. You know it’s bad when you can stare at the sun in the middle of the day. One day in my area, we had an air quality index (AQI) of >2500. ‘Hazardous’ levels are >200. Yes, you’re reading that correctly, and I’m...
@scorpiomover it’s a good suggestion.
We used to have a closed thread for ban announcements only, but it seems it was abandoned in 2017.
I think this transparency is important and should be reintroduced.
Here’s the thread I refer to:
In my experience, best way to build habits is to find something in the habit thats’s so fucking ridiculously easy to do that you can’t be excused for not doing it.
For instance. In September of this year, I decided it was time to sort out my excess fat issue. Rather than committing to x amount...
Eat more vegetables.
Keep a Bullet Journal.
Learn to forgive yourself when you fuck up; take the lesson and be better next time.
Be kind to others.
If you get those, the rest will sort itself out imo
If the fear is of embarrassment/failure, then learn to get comfortable with failure in another context, and translate it back to the dating world. For learning to be comfortable with social failure, I would recommend improv classes.
(Bonus: you get to meet people there)
