Today, I was given $1.00 too much in change. I gave it back. #lifewithjoseph Use this thread for mundane life updates. Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: Poet on August 08, 2018, 10:19:55 am Today, I woke up. Then I fell asleep again. But it was only 4 in the morning so it was of no consequence. I was half an hour early to school. I like this thread. It reminds me how ordinary 90% of life is. But that’s always the 90% we forget. #thoughtswithpoet Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: Bri MT on August 08, 2018, 10:55:55 am All of my labs this week were cancelled, so I have been sleeping in til 7.

My account has been banned from the school server with the Informatics SAT due next week and I have no way to access my files to finish it off.

Why was it banned?
Post by: technodisney on August 14, 2018, 03:07:34 pm
Why was it banned?

I am unsure. I am too scared to approach the admins so I have just emailed the senior school coordinator asking about it.

I have been using VPNs a bit at school recently.

I have also tried to add some Javascript files into my school drive for my website for the SAT and they get instantly removed and I get an email saying I have an unauthorised file in my drive, so that may be it.
Post by: Poet on August 14, 2018, 04:59:19 pm
Today, I debated whether I should count the amount of beans Heinz can fit into the average can, just because I need to prepare for the uni life of surviving on a single can per week, right? So, if I manage to get a palette of 60 bean cans, I can live for more than a year in the thriftiest way possible.

@technodisney, the school didn't lock anyone else using VPN down today, so I doubt it was that. Also, it places you in Saudi Arabia, so I think it would have to be the Javascript.

It is never the wrong time of year to eat ice-cream. Same with hot foods, you can eat them both at any time of year. It's just that most people have silly ideas about that kind of thing. :P

Just waiting for my 'new' laptop to arrive, discovering all the reasons why it was such a good thing to have. I can't even play games anymore :'(

I couldn't find my usual pair of shoes for non-lab uni days this morning and I was rushed for time, so I chose my heeled sandals and ran to the station to make the train on time.

The barista asked if I wanted a flat white. I was going to get a latte, but didn't want to seem confrontational, so confirmed that I did, indeed, want a flat white.

In English for the last few periods our teacher has been writing an essay on the board and we've been copying it down and it was getting quite boring, but then my friend and I decided to write in different fonts every few lines, then she started writing it French.

I was on an excursion yesterday and i was washing my hands and because I was so used to the taps at my school where you push and the water stops after a while I just stood there washing my hands waiting for the water to stop, then I thought 'this tap is going on for a long time', but I stayed there, then I realised after a while I had to turn it off because it was a regular tap.

Why do they want to call you so often?
Post by: beatroot on August 19, 2018, 03:52:30 pm

They always offer me an extra shift on my days off or when I have uni on. Out of the team, I'm the one who lives the closest to our workplace.
As much I would love the extra cash, having some down time is nice.
Post by: insanipi on August 19, 2018, 08:25:03 pm
I told dad that I was going to go to uni extra early tomorrow morning to study. He laughed, because he knows that I don't typically do early mornings.
I also told someone else that I was going in early tomorrow. I think he thinks I'm er mad

We got back our methods SAC.
I wanted to know the average.
Instead I asked the teacher for the mean, median, mode, and standard deviation of the SAC.

My teacher was not impressed.

But did he give it to you?

Just had my Enviro SAC. It was surprisingly easy. He just put in the 30 marks from the practice SAC (last year's real SAC) and 9 new MC and 11 marks of Short answer. He even managed to put the same multiple choice question in twice. This class is in shambles

Also my friends threw an incredibly obvious surprise party at recess. Was nice though.

Funny thing is that at my school the Chem/Physics teacher is married to the Psych/History teacher, and there's a bit of subject banter between them, and the Psych/History teacher got so mad when we class-shared and did each others Kahoots, and I won both the History Kahoots despite not being in History. lol :P

Congratulations, the answer you gave to problem 1 is correct.

You are the 775991st person to have solved this problem.

This problem had a difficulty rating of 5%. The highest difficulty rating you had previously solved was 0%.
This is a new record. Well done!

Apparently VCAA mandates that teachers are not allowed to release the mean, median and standard deviation.
Some teachers at my school release the mean but absolutely never release the standard dev as one can approximate their rank using it in conjunction with mean :P.

The chickens are free as Dobby today! They've got the whole pen to themselves!
They're  rolling in the dirt. Also one of them has a sniffle and sneezes really violently while simultaneously 'bok'-ing. It is very funny.
I brought more homemade oat bread for them today, too. Not even in VCAL lol, still doing a better job of looking after their pets
Happy chickens make me happy. :D

I have experienced a sudden increase in random fb friend requests from obviously fake profiles (and also some that appear real who I don’t know and aren’t even Australian). It is peculiar.

Actually now that I think about it, it could be because I just turned 18. I know fb removes some inbuilt privacy things when people turn 18, but sending me friend requests wasn’t restricted anyway. Weird.

Edit: Also I just got locked out of my fb account and had to verify my posts because I shared 5 posts in 2 days. My average rate of posting to my profile is about 2 a year I think fb gets confused because I almost exclusively post and comment in closed groups

People are allowed to bring their dogs to school so there’s normally a dog around somewhere pretty much every day haha. Running into a class without it’s owner is not so mundane though. (There was a big fluff here yesterday - maybe an old English sheepdog or something like that. I didn’t get to pat her though :'()

A Poem (@ NESA, this would be a good discovery unseen text)

Found $20 on the ground Bent down to collect it A strong gust of wind blew it away. Went after it with passion and finally got it :) Overheard someone talking about how they just lost their$20
Conscience kicked in and I gave the money to them
And then missed my train

Recently watched How to get away with Murder. Actually got pissed and upset that the main characters they killed off were two people with very difficult upbringings (Wes and Rebecca), especially at points that they were happy in relationships, something that is very difficult at times for characters that have never known what being in love was like. If only they didn't go with the 'people who went through trauma after trauma die young' and instead tried to create something inspiring...Both of those characters are somewhat more multi-dimensional than many of the others. I also just think that there is something greater that play for young people who grew up like that, to feel less alone, to understand a bit about themselves, to see that people like them can be loved and to love....

When I write my own tv show...

I spent most of my weekend sitting on the same lounge watching Netflix (Misfits) and I went to the store to buy some double sided tape, ended up buying some earphones because I lost mine. I got home literally found the headphones I lost but I looked in the spot they were and they weren't there originally. But anyway.

I continued watching Netflix and did my VAPD.

Today’s the 4th time in the last 2 weeks work’s asked to change my shift last minute. It’s 4pm. It would take me around an hour to get home to get my uniform etc. and then about 45min to get to work. There’s no way in hell I’m going to do that. Also Sunday and Monday are my department managers days off so it’s been the store manager texting me and she’s scary.

I don’t know why they need someone to come in this last minute anyway...but then I know who’s supposed to be closing and it’s the same person who texted me at 10pm to ask me to cover for her the next day...

Why can’t they just figure this out in advance. I got asked to work 2 tuesdays in a row last minute and even I knew weeks in advance that the person who was supposed to be working wasn’t going to be there.

No school uniform haha - Although that only happened at the end of last year and it's optional now so people do still wear it sometimes (or just the jacket)

Took an uber pool today!
Driver was having trouble trying to find the other passenger.
Driver puts call on loudspeaker.
Passenger gives the wrong directions to his location.
Had to awkwardly listen to their argument during the ride.

I learnt this recently from a friend as well, Uber has an option (Uber Pool) which allows you to ride with people (strangers) going from nearby meeting places to similar locations (or ones on the way). They system links you with other people and brings the cost down quite a bit.
Post by: beatroot on September 04, 2018, 08:29:26 pm

Uber pool is almost the same as normal Uber but it's way way cheaper since you have the share the ride with other passengers. Drivers will pick up and drop off passengers heading in the same direction to locations that are somewhat close to one another. Though, it takes a bit longer to book an Uber pool since drivers are busy picking up/dropping off passengers, it is reasonably cheaper than having an Uber all for yourself. My uber pool only cost me $5.62, instead of the usual$14.

Plus, you get to meet very interesting people in Uber pools :)

I dropped my laptop (surface pro 3) and broke one of the hinges on the stand. RIP. Now it doesn't stand up, yet another reason why I hate this laptop :( I was going to get a new laptop next year anyway because it's got a heap of other issues. Now I don't know whether to make do for the rest of the year (I have to put something behind it to make it stay up) or to get a new laptop (which probably won't get a surface pro because I've hated it since I got it). Yay one more thing to worry about :(

Little kids look up to their older siblings! ^-^ My nearly 6yo sister and 7yo brother still don't quite understand the concept of "Louise needs to study" whilst I'm trying to study but they want me to play. Give her a little patience, she's only young after all! :D (plus little kids are a great source of stress relief <3 )

Play it on a laptop and give her headphones and then sit next to her and do whatever else you want. She probably just wants to be with you.

I don’t normally have that many issues with public transport (inner city privelleges haha) but half of the tram route to my house isn’t running due to road works and now I get this whilst waiting for my train to get home...

Quote
There may be delays of up to 50 minutes due to a motor vehicle blocking the tracks near Ruthven.
It says there’ll be a train at my station in a few minutes so yay, I don’t know how else I would have got home haha

Also I should probably pay more attention to when footy is on, damn this train is packed (at least it showed up though).

After nearly half a decade at school, I finally earned the prestigious right to use the staff bathrooms.
I discovered three things:

1. The lights actually turn on as soon as I open the door, unlike student bathrooms where you have to either hop under the sensors like an idiot for 5 minutes or do your business in the dark.
2. The locks on the bathroom doors actually do what they were intended to do so I don't have to wedge my bag under the door just to get some privacy.
3. THREE. PLY. TOILET. PAPER... SCENTED!!!

I don't understand either!! I don't think it's the nicest place to grab a cup of coffee and read a nice book, or have a catch up with a colleague or something! Maybe they just thought. 'oh, this looks a empty, how about adding a couch, that might jazz it up a bit', or maybe they wanted the staff toilet to be better than the student toilet 'what have you got? A shelf? Oh, well we have a couch' :P

Ergh I typed up a whole thing on magpie larks but then my computer did something >:( Yeah, magpie larks are also known as ‘mud-larks’ because they build their nests with mud, and are called ‘peewees’ or ‘peewits’ because of their call (‘pee-o-wee!’) They’re a funny little bird, most noticeably because they’ve imitated the markings of a true Australian magpie, but they’re actually called larks not because that’s part of their subspecies, it’s actually due to the fact that they seem to be having a “lark” – a bit like the monotone clowns of the Aussie bird world haha (love a good ol’ ornithology joke) there's a mud nest right here :D (https://keyserver.lucidcentral.org/key-server/data/03050501-000c-4503-8203-0a030507090d/media/Images/Grallina_cyanoleuca/Image-021.jpg) Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: Mada438 on October 02, 2018, 04:53:47 pm Today i wanted to see what bannana bread tasted like when it was toasted Result: Do not ever toast bananna bread.

It's a secret ballot. You can draw your own conclusions from that... BTW, even if you decide to support a candidate or party that is unlikely to be elected, your vote still has value: That candidate/party will gain government funding, people will be able to see their policies have some support, and your vote will go to your later preferences anyway (not wasted like in first-past-the-post systems). Whereas I assume if you just draw a smiley face none of this will happen. I remember when I first voted. It was after getting "Apparent Failure to Vote" notices over a number of elections... :) Have a look at this if you can't be bothered figuring it out yourself https://australia.isidewith.com/political-quiz That has a pretty random bunch of questions. But still picked much what I expected in spite of me answering some of them randomly.

Also school goes back tomorrow so it’s going to be crazy busy. Why does everyone insist on doing their shopping last minute?!

He's a very wise pig, they say. Never a dull moment, here. It takes ages to get to the library from here, hopefully Pig makes up for all the noise with a good dinner Pig does not make good dinners.

Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: Poet on November 07, 2018, 03:08:56 pm The thing is, green beans aren't actually green. It's the reflection of light and the pigment in the chlorophyll. So does that mean oranges aren't really orange? Or eyes aren't actually blue? Or the world is actually completely monotone and we just pretend that colours are real because we're dreaming and one day we'll all wake up and realise we're not even in year 12 yet and life is a lie.

The colour that something appears is the colour that it transmits, and it absorbs the complementary colour. So if you consider the colour something is to be the colour of light which it absorbs, everything is the opposite colour to what we see. One day soon you'll wake up and realise you're not even in year 12 but that will be for a different reason :) Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: katie,rinos on November 07, 2018, 04:38:39 pm Phone calls really shouldn't be this stressful ... but I've just got a job interview for tomorrow!! :D Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: Joseph41 on November 07, 2018, 04:48:10 pm Phone calls really shouldn't be this stressful ... but I've just got a job interview for tomorrow!! :D What type of work? :) Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: katie,rinos on November 07, 2018, 04:58:14 pm What type of work? :) It's a cafe at one of the shopping centres near me, so making coffees/food and serving people mainly. :) Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: Joseph41 on November 07, 2018, 04:59:06 pm making coffees Thank you on behalf of everybody. ☕ Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: technodisney on November 07, 2018, 07:09:36 pm just spent 10 minutes typing a post then accidentally clicked the refresh button.

As a descriptivist, I claim (very oversimplified) that if enough people call a thing "green" then it is "green". And I'm sure the largely descriptivist Oxford English Dictionary would agree with me... That said, I have always been curious whether other people pointing at the same green thing as me and calling it "green" actually perceive it in the same way as I do. And I don't know there's any way to know that for sure.

And I don't know there's any way to know <i>that</i> for sure. Fun fact: I know the adjective aoi used to be used in Japanese to refer to anything blue and green, however, nowadays, they have the word midori to refer to green, although this range is still different to what we refer to green in English. (Here's a Wikipedia link to sort of explain what I mean.) There are also different boundaries for various colours in other languages too. Anyway, to get this back on topic: I was actually kind of productive today. Although it's been a quiet period for around a fortnight for me now, I've been able to contact people for various things, help people out and make plans to see people. I even caught a hailstone (it was hailing in Melbourne today). Slowly but surely my life is starting to pick itself up again.

Spoiler Quote Hello! I have very bad news for you. 11/07/2018 - on this day I hacked your operating system and got full access to your account It is useless to change the password, my malware intercepts it every time. How it was: In the software of the router to which you were connected that day, there was a vulnerability. I first hacked this router and placed my malicious code on it. When you entered in the Internet, my trojan was installed on the operating system of your device. After that, I made a full dump of your disk (I have all your address book, history of viewing sites, all files, phone numbers and addresses of all your contacts). A month ago, I wanted to lock your device and ask for a small amount of money to unlock. But I looked at the sites that you regularly visit, and came to the big delight of your favorite resources. I'm talking about sites for adults. I want to say - you are a big, big pervert. You have unbridled fantasy!!! After that, an idea came to my mind. I made a screenshot of the intimate website where you have fun (you know what it is about, right?). After that, I made a screenshot of your joys (using the camera of your device) and joined all together. It turned out beautifully, do not doubt. I am strongly belive that you would not like to show these pictures to your relatives, friends or colleagues. I think$786 is a very small amount for my silence.
Besides, I spent a lot of time on you!

I accept money only in Bitcoins.
My BTC wallet: ---

You do not know how to replenish a Bitcoin wallet?
In any search engine write "how to send money to btc wallet".
It's easier than send money to a credit card!

For payment you have a little more than two days (exactly 50 hours).
Do not worry, the timer will start at the moment when you open this letter. Yes, yes .. it has already started!

After payment, my virus and dirty photos with you self-destruct automatically.
Narrative, if I do not receive the specified amount from you, then your device will be blocked, and all your contacts will receive a photos with your "joys".

I want you to be prudent.
- Do not try to find and destroy my virus! (All your data is already uploaded to a remote server)
- Do not try to contact me (this is not feasible, I sent you an email from your account)
- Various security services will not help you; formatting a disk or destroying a device will not help either, since your data is already on a remote server.

P.S. I guarantee you that I will not disturb you again after payment, as you are not my single victim.
This is a hacker code of honor.

From now on, I advise you to use good antiviruses and update them regularly (several times a day)!

Don't be mad at me, everyone has their own work.
Farewell.

Nah he’s not really vicious, he hardly ever actually gets her, he mostly just hisses and waves his paws in her face. She barks at him and jumps around excitedly so I think she scares him more hahaha
I doubt she’ll learn - I call her a puppy but she’s actually 7 and we’ve had the cat longer then her 😂 I taught her to shake my hand but she won’t learn not to annoy the cat lol

I've been considering getting Facebook but I'm thinking most likely not just because there's so much advertising on it these days and it feels weird to be treated a bit like a 'product' in  a way.. What do you reckon about Facebook/other social media?

I don't really notice the advertising much, I tend to just scroll past it really fast.
I mostly use Insta and fb. I follow more animal accounts than humans on insta though. And fb is mostly just for the memes -- most of the posts on my profile are from me sharing political posts sorry ppl who are fb friends with me. I mostly just use it for all the groups I'm in (mostly meme groups/other joke groups). Still think it's worth having though - definitely makes it easier to keep in contact with people you don't see very often. The advertising is annoying but you sorta just get used to it.

Yeah it's a tough weigh up - staying in contact vs advertising... I guess I'll probably get it just because all the people from school are spreading across Australia (interstate degrees!)

I know quite a number of people that use FB only for Messenger - the actual profile/posting side of things isn't used by them.

From my perspective I have had FB since I was around 15 or so (which is 9 years ago) so it's been my #1 social media site for that time. However i've started to use Insta and Twitter a bit more - I think each of them has their own purpose and it's about finding out what you want to get out of these social media sites.

If you just want to keep in touch with old friends etc, then you could always just do Messenger w/out the FB app.

Now, I don't really use FB much myself apart from the occassional post here and there, mostly it's about keeping up to date with pages (even though Twitter achieves nearly the same thing).

I got it recently, caving to peer pressure  :-[ . The messenger part is really useful because you can text people without using credits or if you don't have their number. It scared me a lot when I first signed up because just by putting in my phone and email, straight away under suggested friends all my friends and tonnes of people who I all knew from my year level popped up. Most of them I'd never even texted, but I did use my school email. It scares me about how much the social media sites know about you. I'm very paranoid so I haven't posted any pictures of myself or used my real birthday, but I do have my real name.

The inside of a car wheel is actually so annoying to clean. You have to lie down on your back, push yourself under the car and clean the rim. The thing is, only half the rim is accessible while the car is parked. So then you have to pull yourself out, get in the car, turn the engine on and try to judge a half turn of the wheels. Then you do it all again until you get it right. *sigh* my back is so dirty :-(

I've seen four echidnas in the wild in the last two weeks (Ferntree Gully, Healesville, and two at Port Nepean today).
Unlike most Australian animals, they really don't care who's about watching them (more than one came within a metre of me...)

#spiky #anteater #unconcerned

When I see them near roads etc they seem to be less timid but when I've seen them in natural locations they have scared much more easily.

I wonder how long it takes for them to become desensitised (if that's what's occuring) &  the implications this has on their future survival

Seeing 4 in two weeks is pretty good :)

That's pretty amazing!

I saw one the other day when out mountain biking. It darted across the trail ahead of me so quickly, I had not the time to react (sonic the echidna ?). It must have been sitting beside the trail and been rather startled by a noisy bike.
I had never seen an echidna in the wild before, although I doubt I really 'saw' it. I seem to not have the same luck that you have in finding them, but perhaps it is just because I don't look hard enough (they do blend in a fair bit I would imagine)

I'm sure they used to be more timid for me as well. I suspect part of it is that I've got to reacting more sensitively as I see more of them. They can still startle and curl up in a ball if you make a noise or a sudden move, but if you don't they may go around you but don't tend to stop what they're doing to pay attention to you.  And even if you do accidentally startle them I find they emerge from the ball if you stay quiet long enough (generally no need to move further away).  After all, they are reasonably well protected...

I suggest not looking for them but listening for them (hiking alone probably helps me).  Sometimes I've seen them first, particularly in open, grassy areas, but mostly heard them first then seen them.  Because that's another part of them not really caring - they don't seem to try and stay quiet at all, because they're just intent on their ant-hunting mission.

For comparison, the one in Healesville (well, Yarra Ranges near Healesville) was a trail down from Mt St Leonard through a relatively open grassy area on either side. I saw a wallaby a long way out, and despite approaching as quietly as I could it wouldn't let me within 25 metres of it. When two minutes later I heard something in the grass to my left I was pretty sure it wasn't another wallaby, and was probably an echidna.  Which it turned out to be.

Just around Melbourne I've heard (and seen) them in at least the Dandenong Ranges, Cardinia Reservoir Park, Lysterfield Lake Park, Sugarloaf Reservoir Park, Yarra Ranges, Phillip Island. So they're certainly about.

This might sound really funny but today I realised that I am never sure how many  " o's " to attach with words like " to ".

"To" is typically followed by some kind of a destination. It's an example of a preposition.
For example: I am going to a party.

"Too" is an example of an adverb, i.e. a word that describes an action word. It's typically used to put exaggeration into a verb.
For example: I was driving too fast.

The fact that one is a preposition and the other is an adverb should be enough to distinguish contexts, but I personally have never seen a bunch of extra o's appended to the word "to" for extra effect before. Don't think I ever needed it.

Post by: PhoenixxFire on January 03, 2019, 12:34:23 pm
What types are you looking at?
The really expensive one was the surface book 2 ($2500 ish....) Ideally I'd want one that detaches from the keyboard, I've got a (very broken) surface pro at the moment and I don't like having the stand at the back, which is why I love the surface book - it's detachable but the hinge holds it up, not a stand. Most of the convertible ones I was looking at just flip over, which I don't really mind but the ones I was looking at (Dell Inspiron and Lenovo yoga) have a pretty crap battery life which is not ideal. I only really want a convertible one because it's what I'm used to, it's not super necessary but would be nice. Don't think I'm going to find a convertible laptop with a decent battery that isn't a few thousand dollars though haha Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: Lear on January 03, 2019, 12:35:54 pm HP spectre x360 might be worth looking at Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: EEEEEEP on January 03, 2019, 12:37:54 pm Finally found a laptop design that I love. Except I'd never even use half the features and it's incredibly expensive :( The search continues... (I think I'm going to give up on finding a convertible laptop/tablet that I actually like and go for a normal laptop instead :'() I'm going to be seeing laptop ads on social media for months now Phoenix :) Laptops are incredibly overpriced at the shops! Go on Facebook market place, and I tell you ... there are some really cheap laptops there. Prime example: (A Surface pro under 800 and a Macbook under 800 dollars ):) Spoiler (https://i.imgur.com/XWSstQQ.png) Spoiler (https://i.imgur.com/ihfWQey.png) (Okay there's no warranty etc... but the prices there are really good... like literally 50% to 80% off the shop prices.

They were initially rolling around and doing horsey things which were quite amusing to watch, but as I proceeded onwards (with hesitance) they became less than happy with my existence and ran away. I did get a few pretty poor photos of them after they had run away and stopped doing their horsey things. I don't know if anyone else has seen brumbies before, but this was a first for me.

Instead, I wasted one hour figuring out how to study english (and failed) and then went back to reading manga (Bakugan- the one about two kids trying to become manga artists). I then was guilt-tripped about not studying and then wasted time looking at ways on how to study :D :D :D. Nah seriously, the manga was the highlight of the day. Never have I been so engaged with a manga before. So interesting. Give it a read. Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: Erutepa on January 10, 2019, 10:37:11 pm Just walked outside in the dark and right into a spider web.

Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: Aaron on January 16, 2019, 09:39:29 pm Blame the government for the botched mixed tech shit. If we had've just stuck to the original plan we'd be in the same position in terms of rollout speed and we'd have fibre to the premise instead of this crap.. but alas it's better than what i've had to put up with so i'm content, for now. :) Some providers offer up to 250/100 but that's for FTTP only and costs a ton. 5G will never be sustainable or affordable for the consumer with the amount of data the average person uses. If you've ever bought a data only sim or mobile broadband (e.g. using a dongle) you'll know how expensive and little value you get.... and that's with current 4G, not considering the intro of 5G at all. Anyway, I recognise this is the beginning of an off topic convo so i'll stop there. Safe to say though, I have received a significant improvement (of nearly 30x) so i'm thrilled.

Don't worry, you're not allergic. In fact, you quite like the occasional peanut. You wish to eat these peanuts. However, they are in a bag. You would have to reach into this bag to snatch your desired peanut, but your fingers would get salty and peanutty and you don't want your keyboard to get salty and peanutty either. You solve the bag issue by rolling down the sides and placing it on the table, so it looks like a bowl. But how to eat the peanuts? The answer? Use a spoon. I'm eating peanuts with a spoon.

If it's just through your lobe it may be fine, but if you're looking to pierce cartilage it's a bad idea. I would recommend forking out to get them done sanitarily and properly though, mine were$15 per ear and that included the studs. No infections and you also get sprays to ward off infection. You also get instructions. DIY body mutilation is often a bad idea if done on a whim or without appropriate tools, treatment and supervision.

IMO definitely not worth the risk...get someone with training and medical grade, sterilised equipment to do it. It's pretty cheap to get done (think my lobes were about 30 bucks including earrings) and if you really don't want to spend much money, wait till Off Ya Tree do a $5 special on piercings (which is fairly frequently) Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: hums_student on April 14, 2019, 08:49:45 pm Can we all just take a moment to give a round of applause to Melbourne Uni's commerce department.

Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: appleandbee on April 23, 2019, 10:57:09 pm Things ended this afternoon with someone I was dating for two weeks (knew of each other's existence for another two and a half before that from a dating app). While the 20 hours we spent together across the three dates were amazing, he chose to ended things because he didn't feel that his mental health was good enough for him to back into dating at this point in time (I believe that this is the only reason if he says so since we are both fairly straightforward, he spoke a bit having a shitty week a few times and we were also both exclusively dating). The intimacy we had felt so good, we had engaging conversations, the silences felt comfortable, we were forward about how we felt, we could talk about the mundane and shitty stuff in our everyday lives, we had a lot of fun being together, we were attracted to each other physically and personality wise. I am proud of him because acknowledging mental health issues are difficult for men in a unique way (would say the same for women and gender non-conforming people in different ways) and because if you care about someone that much; you want the best for them and hope trust them in making those choices. I also think that starting out dating when you have very low self-esteem can be problematic at times, such that if you love yourself at 20%, the other person may only have to love you at 30% for you to get the kick of feeling good (this is what narcissists consistently try to take advantage of). That said I'm sad, although I do not believe that my feelings should override his ability to do what is best for his well-being. I basically wrote this to validate the sadness/downess I feel about someone I only recently started dating. Sometimes you could meet the right person at the wrong time.

I like it. :D Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: Joseph41 on April 26, 2019, 04:02:28 pm Also this tea I'm drinking has a subtly nutty flavour. I like it. :D What type of tea?

By the time I'd been there for a year and a half I was regularly the most experienced working (people who actually knew what they were doing rarely worked at the same time) despite being the youngest by far.

Where could he have gone? What if he gets hurt? Luckily, a person who happened to drive by with their dog noticed the scene and took the leash off their dog and attached it to the collar of the "attacking" doggo. Then they drove along and followed Geoffrey. Guess where he went? On our front porch, waiting to be let in.

I didn't notice until I heard a spraying noise. At first I though it was hairspray, but then I looked closer and saw he was spraying something sitting on his lap. He had a skate board rested on his lap with a sheet of foil on it. On the foil was an onion cut in half and a raw piece of fish. At first I worried that it was some dead thing, (The combination of the red onions and the raw fish made me think of something I had dissected in biology) He was spraying it with non stick oil stuff. Some people were moving away from the small cloud of oil it was producing. He then took out a piece of lemon and squeezed it onto the fish. Then he wrapped the foil around it into a little foil pocket of fish and then left the train. Very amusing ;D Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: Joseph41 on May 10, 2019, 06:21:31 am Me this morning: "I'm just a big toasty cinnamon bun."

Anna’s loss of her husband Sam, her lodger George Viccars and her sons Jamie and Tom bring her great grief however her losses are what inspires the most growth and change from her. Despite many others blaming the plague on God and succumbing to hysteria, Anna, led by Elinor, concludes the plague is a thing of nature and must be looked at scientifically. In contrast to Anna’s response to her loss, Anna’s mother Aphra Bont is pushed over the edge, and the ‘ravages of her madness’ had taken a great toll on her both mentally and physically as she dismembers her children and kills Elinor in a rage of ‘senseless violence’. Other characters blame Anys and Mem Gowdie for the plague consequently lynching Anys when she performs mouth to mouth on her aunt Mem she is seen as a witch for bringing her aunt back to life. All characters experience grief and loss however every character responds and copes differently.

Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: PhoenixxFire on June 04, 2019, 11:58:14 am Elaborate? What do you mean "hacked"? As in, data breach hacked. Quote We believe there was unauthorised access to significant amounts of personal staff, student and visitor data extending back 19 years. Depending on the information you have provided to the University, this may include names, addresses, dates of birth, phone numbers, personal email addresses and emergency contact details, tax file numbers, payroll information, bank account details, and passport details. Student academic records were also accessed. Apparently they got hacked earlier last year as well, and supposedly upgraded their security, which is supposedly the only reason they detected it this time (...months after the fact). But ya know, why bother upgrading their security enough to prevent hacking I guess?? And now they're basically just telling us to change our passwords and move on ::) Nevermind that identity theft would be ridiculously easy with the stolen information.

Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: AngelWings on June 05, 2019, 05:48:00 pm Please, somebody tell me that uni stdents don't have exams then. ??? Depends on which uni you go to and what year it is. Usually the exam period begins in early November, but, like Easter, it does move a little each year, so Halloween sometimes falls on the first or second week of exams. (This tends to be places that have ten week trimesters like Deakin, rather than places with 12 week semesters like Monash or Melbourne; they usually have SWOTVAC/ StuVac that week.) I remember one year some students wore Halloween costumes to their exam since the exam was on the same day as Halloween, no joke. Mundane life update: I found my old winter gloves last week and they still fit. Going to work in the frigid cold morning weather is now much more bearable.

Winter solstice in Belgrave.  Was a lot of fun: Inventive lanterns, fire dancing, circus acts, telescopes tuned to Jupiter and Saturn.  But cold (4 degrees and misty as I walked back home).

Yes, it is. I overheard someone claiming it was the first one they had been to which wasn't raining :) [it did rain last year, but not much].

This is not mundane but I'll allow it ;)

Why, thank you for your gracious permission.
Yesterday I came third in a cupcake cooking competition at work. Mundane enough? ;)

They looked pretty mundane - not to be compared with the Pikachu cupcakes made by a colleague. They tasted OK, though: Sticky date with caramel icing (basically, caramel sauce with added icing sugar...) [RECIPE]

It's Rare Books Week in Melbourne.  Time to hear about all the books that I'd really love to read but don't have make time for.  Some with beautiful covers, too (though now I do most of my reading on a Kindle).

Tonight was Juvenile Books of War, many of them suitably jingoistic, particularly early in the wars, and with the old-style covers.

I love the concept of the Christmas Truce, and there was a lovely tiny book with a Christmas Truce poem and some beautiful illustrations.  The poem itself with some of the illustrations is here (I also like the film Joyeux Noel - both because of the Christmas Truce, and because it has one of the most chilling sermons ever).

Then had the fun of bus replacement, heavy rain, hail, and a very close and bright flash of lightning just before I got home.  Generally just good times as only Melbourne can provide ;) .

While my sleep schedule is not as extreme as yours ;D, I have the same problem as well, going to bed at 12:30 and waking up really late! Hopefully it gets better for the both of us!

Well, if you mean when I've been going to sleep recently, I've pretty much been browsing atarnotes and watching youtube (a wonderful combination). During the school term, though, I just wake up at 5 to do homework and cook bacon and eggs without having to rush out the door ::)

Oh my goodness! That sounds amazing. No matter how early I wake up, I always seem to be eating a slice of toast as I walk out the door (if that). Can never quite seem to get breakfast organised hahaha. The temptation to buy a $1 hashbrown at the new school canteen is often too much if I haven't had anything before I leave.

It's become a meme between me and my friends :') The wind is howling so freaking loud outside my window I can't hear myself think.

It was the best change I ever made. After being stuck just on the border of the ADSL exchange (so my speeds e.g. d/l was about 4 Mbps which is considered quite poor), I moved places and got on a really strong HFC NBN connection. My download speeds don't drop below 90 Mbps now even during peak. You don't realise what you're missing out on until you get a strong stable NBN connection. My speedtest I just did: https://imgur.com/a/R2VoZnE I've heard horror stories as well re: NBN, particularly on FTTN/FTTC (fibre to the node/curb) and fixed wireless services.

First time I went abseiling it was a bit intimidating and I tripped over backwards off the cliff face (this was outdoors) but I was fine :) If you're dealing with overhangs just make sure you lower yourself down enough so your head won't crash into the wall/face (you won't die or anything if it does but I tend to prefer not whacking my head into things ahaha). Remember that even if you screw up anything you have your belayer there as a safety net :) The scariest part of most things is starting & that's certainly true for many people when it comes to stuff involving heights.

I'm not really sure to be quite honest but I'll try to describe it anyways. Context: Indoor Rock Climbing.

So like there's a little place to stand on top of the rock climbing thing and you can jump off that with like a rope or something. Sorry if that made no sense. Oh I think I get it - so like freefall? In that case I woudn't find it very scary since if you're wearing the harness you can control your speed and it's pretty hard to muck that up (not saying I couldn't - just that the chances are quite low) and even if you did you'd have a belayer or autobelay system to stop you if needed. That being said, it'll probably feel scary for most people standing on the platform. If you're jumping where there's a wall or other obstacle near you, you should face it so you can push off it with your feet if needed (which I find fun), but I'm sure they'll go through everything relevant anyway :) Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: Snow Leopard on July 19, 2019, 08:51:38 pm Oh I think I get it - so like freefall?

I miss the banter we would have in high school every class and then on the bus home. Even though I regularly see my friends still, we won't ever get that atmosphere back. It's only my second trimester in uni and I feel like this. Ah good times =( Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: SlowandSteady on August 09, 2019, 09:31:59 pm Someone was heating up some pasta in the seniors lounge and, before i knew it, there were about 7 people crowding the microwave.

Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: RuiAce on August 26, 2019, 09:32:01 pm So I was driving in a 50 zone. So obviously I was going at 50km/hr. Then out of the corner of my eye this stray neko tries to cross the road right in front of my car. Far out I had to push down the brakes. Fortunately it was wise enough to run back to its own side of the road before I got too close to it. Crisis averted.

Feels sturdy, could handle a lot of wear, I think. I got mid-tier so she's got an i5 processor, 256g and 8GB guts, which are pretty well-received and (very) affordable considering I got it all 20% off. I also bought the Microsoft pen and a keyboard. They work perfectly and smell new; I can't wait to try out the pen on my drawing programs!!! I'm really enjoying the in-built stand as well - it holds up and needs to be pushed to move, so it sits on my lap really well. I think I made a good choice. :)) Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: PhoenixxFire on September 30, 2019, 07:08:09 pm I'm really enjoying the in-built stand as well - it holds up and needs to be pushed to move, so it sits on my lap really well. Would not recommend having your laptop sitting on the edge of your bed with the stand out, then sitting up in bed and having it slide off the bed and hit the ground on the back/open stand (the side that would be sitting on you if you were using it), resulting in a shock to the stands hinges. #OddlySpecificWaysToDamageYourSurfacePro #ThisIsHowIBrokeOneOfMyHinges Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: laura_ on October 11, 2019, 09:14:20 pm Have to get up at 5:30 tomorrow- really unimpressed.

Thank you! I used paint 3D (default program on my laptop) and sketched the outline and creases in pink pencil. (Lots of erasing and staring at my left hand to figure out what the angles, sizes etc. of various parts should be). This became my guide for everything else. Veins were added in pencil initially, later I realised it was too grainy and went over with the paint brush tool but by that stage I'd already added skin tone so I had to go back and (attempt) to correct the skin tone as well so it wasn't too blue. For the skin tone I mostly used the spraycan tool with various levels of opacity & size. Then I added an outline in that colour with the brush tool, erased shading outside the lines & that's it!

I love looking at others art :))) An update from me: Had my Spec TF Unit 2 exam this week. Due to the exam, I studied statics of a particle very much over the weekend as I really didnt pay much attention in class when it was being taught. I understood it, as was super happy with myself. Started doing the exam, was disappointed a question on that topic didnt come up. Kinda stumbled through the exam. Glanced at the person next to me in the last 30 secs who seemed to be busy working on a question with a diagram. Where on earth was this????? Quickly flicked through the exam - only to find the question on THE BACK PAGE. Time was now up, and a 4 mark question I studied so hard for was staring back at me, blank. You could almost feel my disappointment. Guess I'll never forget to check the back page again. Kinda a long update ha ha Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: PhoenixxFire on November 17, 2019, 12:05:04 am Have a two stage fire alarm activation system, they said.

After having put it off for a few years I was pleasantly surprised by how easy and relatively painless it was! I was previously absolutely terrified of the thought of getting any teeth pulled out (especially with me awake) but I'm glad I chose to get them out when awake. Cheaper, no anaesthetic and genuinely wasn't a bad experience! Tl;dr - my wisdom teeth removal was a massive anticlimax (thankfully) Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: blueycan on December 13, 2019, 04:06:53 pm picked up all my textbooks for a very good price (secondhand bookstore) and got the AtarNotes hhd topic test book + methods class notes !!

So for dinner tonight I had pizza that I cooked in a microwave but it actually kinda worked.

I will now shamelessly say that I am a Frozen fan... Walking into the cinema I didn't think I would enjoy it. Frozen 1 was alright, I wasn't a huge fan. But OMG (!!!!) I thought Frozen 2 was amazing! I have never related to a character as much as I related to Olaf. Spoiler He was legit having an existential crisis the whole movie, questioning his own existence... What a mood But yeah, the soundtrack was amazing and I particularly love "All Is Found" (the lullaby). The great thing about the soundtrack is that if you listen to it, most of the songs don't sound like Disney songs and if you haven't seen the movie you wouldn't even guess they were from Frozen... Anywho, 10/10 would recommend :) Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: ArtyDreams on December 21, 2019, 07:40:00 pm Its my birthday in a week.

Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: laura_ on December 21, 2019, 09:32:44 pm // It's my birthday on Monday, and I feel the exact same thing, (unfortunately...). Does that mean your birthday is on December 28th? How do you find having your birthday so close to Christmas? My friends are always busy if I want to do something so I generally put my party off until January if I'm going to have one. Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: turinturambar on December 24, 2019, 12:05:20 am Its my birthday in a week. I can tell I'm getting old because I'm no longer excited for my birthday. More like dreading it because it means I'm getting old and my childhood is almost over. When I was in Year 7 (I think) I literally did not remember it was my birthday. That was more than half a lifetime ago, and my family have never let me forget it... That said, speaking from my incredibly advanced age, I observe that people from just about every age group feel like they're getting old. In my experience, increasing age comes with new responsibilities, but also with new privileges. And "Age is just a number: You are as old as you feel" isn't quite true, but has a lot of truth to it. Not trying to suggest that your feelings are invalid, but you have a lot of life ahead of you and I hope it is wonderful.

Love this K, and it reminds me of a very eventful event all the way back in 2017. I enjoy lemonade, but would never over-drink, usually have like half a cup every night or second night, so like 1/3 of a can with some gaps of weeks. Anyway, one night my mum got mad and started saying I drink too much soft drink, and I basically said I could stop right now if I wanted to, and she didn't believe me. From that point, I didn't drink a single drop for about 8 months ;D I drink lemonade occasionally these days, but nothing else.

Title: Re: Mundane life updates Post by: DrDusk on January 11, 2020, 04:25:54 pm Will you still take cold showers in the winter months? I think the trick is to make sure the temperature of the water is below room temperature. This makes sense scientifically because really it's not the fact that the water is cold that makes a difference but rather that it's not as hot or hotter than room temperature. Skin dries because the hot water strips your skin of moisture, I'm pretty sure this won't happen as long as it's cooler than room temperature. Obviously I think it still must be below a certain threshold. So I'll definitely take 'cold' showers in the colder months by making sure the water is cooler than room temperature.

I did Hamlet in Year 12 and liked it (I know - you're not meant to like set texts ;) ).
Well, Hamlet is being played at the Botanical Gardens this summer, and I went along last night and really enjoyed it.  Outdoors, sitting on a picnic rug with good weather and good acting and a few thought-provoking soliloquies - what's not to like?

I made my own dinner but there were no potatoes, so I had to use carrots instead. So it was baked carrots, canned fish, a capsicum and olive oil. So basically I had to improvise.

Get a free one month trial at Stan instead ;) (I prefer Stan over Netflix tbh)

Speaking of Stan, just finished all nine seasons of 'How I Met Your Mother'

Just got back from Melbourne to QLD in the car; took about 22 hours and I have never wanted a shower more in my life. Dad's a machine for being able to last as long as he did.

I was a little peeved at having to sleep in the car, then I remembered that there are people in NSW that'll have to be doing just that for quite a while. Really makes me appreciate that I still have a place to come back to. Here's to praying that this catastrophe will all be over as soon as possible.

How did you find it?

I did a run through of it about a year ago when it was still in Netflix - although it wasn't my first time

I guess if you can go past to how sexist the show is at times (some characters were problematic at times [especially Ted and Barney])- then the show is great! It's actually written so well and the writers dropped clues all through 9 seasons on how the main character, Ted, met the mother. I find that the jokes and the running gags are hilarious as well. Ending was quite disappointing (like everyone said it was) but the journey to it is worth the binge imo. You learn to love the characters and their little quirks (can find myself relating to Ted and Lily at times)

Would recommend if you like the romcom genre and sitcom shows.

Edit: I'll have to give 'A Series of Unfortunate Events' another watch after watching Neil Patrick Harris on HIMYM. At first I wasn't impressed with NPH casting in A Series of Unfortunate Events. But after watching HIMYM, I now understand why he was casted as Count Olaf.

Finally got around to seeing The Return of Skywalker. Managed to avoid almost all spoilers (none of which were important to the main story).

I thought it was a good movie but not a good Star Wars movie, a few things felt like a cop out. I suspect it is mainly due to Carrie Fisher's death. Ian McDiarmid's role was performed amazingly, his acting always blows me away.

My school is doing an online cross-country.

brief explanation
cross-country was cancelled 'cause of COVID-19 --> then they were like "wait, we can do it online" --> everyone who wants to participate has to make their own track that is a certain distance and then they have to run it and record it with an app - we are using "strava"

I have to run 5km this year (which is a lot longer than usual... 16-18y.o. girls usually run 3.5km, whereas guys run 5 or 6km)
I have never run 5km in my life... ever. Well, maybe if we add up the total distance i run playing touch football or something, I'd probably get close. But for long-distance running, I've never run further than 4.5km (i ran that two years ago tho, when I was still sporty).

I started training this week. Two days ago I ran 2.5km in.... a very sad 24 minutes.... Not very good, ik.
Today, I ran the same distance in 19 minutes.... Still not very good, but way better than what I ran on Tuesday... Idk how i did it.
But anyway, I'm really unfit now (the COVID diet of eating junk food for every meal also isnt helping) and I am fully prepared to die when I run 5km...

Hi, AN Notes community!

Similarly to J_Rho, I am making my own website to start my own tutoring business! So hopefully it turns out okay because I honestly don't know what I would do if it didn't. I'm thinking of calling it Study You where each tutoring/education program is personalised based on each user as well their individual academic abilities and would have the ability to support self-paced learning and study. Also, through my website/tuition services, I am planning to support every type of learning style (e.g. auditory, visual, kinaesthetic etc.) through various modes such as YouTube videos, worksheets, powerpoints, "podcasts" and more!

I'll definitely update you guys when I publish my website! I can't wait to share it with you all :)

Have a great week and kind regards,

- Get to work with an interesting data set for an assignment (microplastics in the Yarra and Maribyrnong over 3 years)
- See interesting patterns and form research questions (change in amounts of particular plastics found after high rainfall)
- Digging a little deeper, the patterns were very likely just from rainfall changing across months while human pollution changed across months too :(

Do I want to know how bad the consequences of this are? :(
OK, I'll ask because I'm curious, but it sounds like it could be quite different from your research so feel free to ignore:
1. Do you compare at all with other comparable river systems?

2. I assume plastic levels also affect biodiversity? (though so I guess might rainfall?)

2. I assume plastic levels also affect biodiversity? (though so I guess might rainfall?)

The :( wasn't really about ecological impacts of rainfall not appearing to have detectable significant effect on plastics, but more so about it not being viable for me to explore what could've been an interesting analysis. It's hard to say whether there not being a clear detectable trend here is because there isn't one or if it's because of limitations in the data (e.g. maybe if there were more trawls per month there would be a discernible pattern). I'm also unsure whether strong correlation between rainfall and plastics  would have a strong effect size on biodiversity or ecosystems services and if so how. If there had been a clear pattern this might have been able to inform understanding of how plastics are entering waterways but it also could suggest greater dispersal of plastic from sites of pollution potentially making management and regulation more difficult.

1. Haven't yet but I'll be looking up literature around this. This also brings in the question of what to search for. E.g. other waterways in Victoria, waterways which face similar pressures, well-monitored waterways...

2. Yeah absolutely. Probably the most classic example of plastic harming wildlife is a sea turtle choking on a plastic bag, but for example, microplastics can have negative impacts on sea turtle brains. From individual impacts this can then change species composition etc. thus influencing bigger scope ideas like biodiversity. Rainfall as you would expect substantially influences ecosystem system functioning but afaik for these waterways that would be trend-based rather than substantial fluctuations for individual weather events.

There's a clear "turning point" in the data when looking at number of pollutants (in the up direction sadly) which I'll be looking at to see if there's data on change in biodiversity indexes which correlate with that; I won't be able to show causation but it'll still be interesting to see how closely tied they are (if that information is available - this will be a literature search).

Needed to fix the lid of my fountain pen with super glue.

Its an odd shape lid thats not easy to glue together, but I decided it would be a great idea to try and fix it without asking for help.

I now have super glue on my fingers, the lid wasn't fixed properly and isn't sitting properly on the pen at all.

Went to the zoo and got to see the baby snow leopards. They are so cute.

Also spilt water on my laptop for the third time. It still works but I got a new one because I have an assignment due tomorrow and exams next week.

My physics class did a role play today for something fun (it was quite entertaining). It was called "Quantum Weirdness" and I played Werner Heisenberg :)
Did I learn anything about quantum mechanics? No. But I did learn that I am pretty terrible at German accents

This is especially entertaining to read since Heisenberg's uncertainty principle is in the vce physics curriculum but not in qce  (iirc it's also in hsc/nsw).

The fire alarm in my house went off (dw, false alarm).

My (toddler) nephew lives with me. He went to save the day by putting on his firefighter helmet as soon as he heard it.

Just saw a report that said koalas are "on course to be extinct by 2050 in the wild of NSW". As someone who lives in an area where there are koalas in VIC (only part time, bur still), this saddens me. I wondered how can this beautiful landmark of Australia be dying out?
I really want to join in on conservation efforts.

There is always more we can do to protect our environment.

Something something politics. Don't want to derail the conversation too much, BUT the repeal of the Native Vegetation act is certainly an example of the government unfortunately ruining protections that the species had. I'm not here to play the blame game, that's a discussion for a different board, but if this IS something you feel strongly about, you should let your local MP know. The more people that do, the more likely it is to come up in political discourse, and hopefully will lead to the reintroduction of some the protective measures like the Native Vegetation act.

My mundane life update is I just had Easy Mac. It is not helping my weight loss >.>;

Glasses wearers of AN, how do you avoid / minimise foggy glasses with the mask and glasses combo? :)

Pull mask up a little higher works best for me, with the glasses forming the seal

If all else fails- a bit of TP or tissue on the bridge will work wonders from experience.

Source: been wearing mask + glasses/safety glasses since before the compulsory wearing of them :P

Edit: added a bit of clarity

Get a face mask that's designed to form a seal. I've heard so many hacks about soap, tissues, taping the mask to your face - none of them have worked for me, but ones that are sealed at the top of your face and don't let air go upwards work great.

Have to go into school tomorrow for a SAC!
- Wear a surgical mask - it will likely make a better seal at your nose than a fabric mask
- Put surgical tape on your mask (this is a common move for healthcare workers) to help make the seal better
- Get some anti fogging liquid/spray - I have "Frog Spit" which was originally made for divers and stuff to stop their scuba masks fogging and all that but you can put it on any lens. I find my glasses still fog a bit with them but it clears quicker

Big one also is to make sure your glasses aren't cold - I find mine fog up worst when I first put them on because they're cold from being stored in their case and haven't been near my warm face.

Make sure that your glasses bridge is completely on top of the mask. It was the best way to prevent excessive fog when I went to school with glasses and a mask. It is challenging though so a lot of the time I just didn't wear my glasses or took them off and cleaned them every once in a while :)

Having had several covid swabs now, I've decided ADF personnel have the best and least unpleasant swabbing technique.

What makes a good swab?
Post by: K888 on August 28, 2020, 02:26:26 pm
What makes a good swab?
The throat makes or breaks it. They have to swab the tonsillar arches so very easy to make you gag, but if you don't poke and are a bit more gentle it tends to hold off the gag (depends how strong your gag reflex is). Also speed is a big factor.

Nose is always unpleasant but a gentle insertion and steady hand are important. It's always going to burn and make your eyes water but they also tend to do the "5,4,3,2,1" countdown so you know it's almost done.

As you can maybe tell, I have too much time on my hands right now.

Haha more just that I have too much time on my hands if I'm analysing the technique used on my swabs.

Would just like to clarify 100% that this is not something I'm doing for fun lol

Unfortunately domesticated birds are mostly unable to survive in the wild. Most will die from predators, territorial disputes or lack of viable food source. Birds should be free, but some birds' domestic development leaves them lacking skills and initiative vital for survival. Especially when bred and raised separated from their natural habitats.

The Radroaches in Fallout 4 are hilarious. Also I'm not in the mood for hot tea.
