    [–] ELI5: Why do people with Downs Syndrome seem to be far more functional in society than they were a few decades ago? Felises -1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    She was the abuser in my case. Her bf was 14 and "ran", normal guy what ive heard - talked about the pregnant part not the abuser. Sorry for the miscommunication on my side

    [–] Learning to bicycle on the traffic playground where children can learn the traffic rules in a safe environment Felises 1 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    Did this in elementary school (1999 or 2000 cant remember which class it was) Cant say it prepared me for traffic in any way. Especially for other people in bicyles or people walking on bikelanes not moving an inch when you try to get their attention to mooove the fuck out of my line. The cars were my smallest problem

    [–] ELI5: Why do people with Downs Syndrome seem to be far more functional in society than they were a few decades ago? Felises -2 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    That happend to a girl in my class too back in 8. Or 9. Grade. Without Down Syndrome ;) her parents raised the baby. Baby should be 7-9y old by now cant remember exactly. Hated that girl - she could have been in the mean Girls movie.

    Hope everything turned out fine for them anyway

    [–] Holding your breath to get rid of hiccups is like turning your lungs off and on again Felises 1 points ago in Showerthoughts

    Try laying down and "relax every muscle". It helps me sometimes with a endless hiccup. Looks stupid in public tho....

    [–] How do I curl my eyelashes ? Felises 1 points ago in askwomenadvice

    Since the rise of beauty youtuber you can learn almost everything about makeup on there very detailed. Helped me to stop looking like a blind clown when wearing makeup. Curling your lashes counts as premakeup for me.

    [–] What hobby would you like to give a try but don't because of the expense? Felises 1 points ago in AskReddit

    It was about 1000 € for 4 years. Only the Vet. And i only went when it was necessary. I got Lucky and had pretty healthy rats. Until the first one turned 2 i was at the vet once. Went up quickly. Plus the gas to get to a Vet who actually knew how to handle rats. 80€-120€ for the cage (selfmade) and a not counted amount for other stuff.

    The Cat.....got hit by a car. 1200€ one time in 18 years (+Shots when she was a kitten, i think it was 50-80€?)

    [–] What hobby would you like to give a try but don't because of the expense? Felises 52 points ago in AskReddit

    Expensive rat toys? You mean toy shreds, dont you ? Vet Bills are expensive as f***. Spend about 1000€ on 4 of them in their last 2 years. 3 got 4 years old. They are super"rewarding" for the time you spend....

    Best Toys seems to be empty cardbox cartons stacked in each other with pumpkinseeds hidden inside. Or just a cooked egg (Not peeled). They went nuts over them.

    I used old newspaper as bedding. They shredded it themselves

    [–] What hobby would you like to give a try but don't because of the expense? Felises 14 points ago in AskReddit

    A rat is alot more Work and Money than a cat (for example since i have/had both) Had 4 rats. Vet bills, food and cage stuff cost the same amount my Cat collected in 18 years.

    They Need more attention too and the cage is a horrible Thing to Clean weekly since the ratpee soaks everything you love and own. Dont forget the smell. Sure you wont smell it After a Hour but it hits you like a truck when you come home from work. They are the cutest pets ever but they need aloooot of time. They will go nuts if you dont entertain them (chewing in everything for example)

    My Cat? I Feed her, Clean her Box (about 5 minutes a day) and she doesnt want anything to do with me aside from goodnight cuddles and Sleeping on me. But shes old. A kitten takes alot of time too.

    If you want a caged animal dont go for rats if you dont have 1-3 hours to spend on them daily. Only for entertaining

    If you want to do small woodworking Stuff there are nice tools on amazon. You just need to sharpen them yourself. My boyfriend got some for his dad on Christmas. It was like 40€ for a set? His dad now builds a looot of small Wood toys for the kids in the family

    [–] Children in multi-sibling households, what lessons did you learn that the only child might never get? Felises 3 points ago in AskReddit

    Hah im also Pocket size. My Brother outgrew me when he was 10 (I was 14) and was always a muscular type (somehow while doing no sports.) while i was just skinny. I was a mean fucker. I Bit, scratched and knew where to hit to hurt with minimal force since im weak.

    When we were alone everything went smoothly since i was in charge and he actually did stuff you told him to do aside from his PC which mom doesnt believe me to this day since she couldnt make him. Remeber the Internet-blackout blackmailing at this point.

    Fighting started once mom walked in the door.

    Today hes 23 and were good. No more fighting at all. Looking back it wasnt that bad we had pretty good times too.

    Mom was a only Child so she was overwhelmed. Dad has 3 Brothers - he just ignored us fighting because it was normal to him.

    Im capable of defending myself to a point thanks to the endless fighting :)

    [–] Children in multi-sibling households, what lessons did you learn that the only child might never get? Felises 5 points ago in AskReddit

    We were/are shitty liars so we settled with silence or hiding the broken Item. If everything went wrong we threw each other under the bus since we knew noone would get punished in that case since she couldnt decide who was guilty.

    The First years were hard for me since "your baby brother couldnt have broken your Glasses!" He did. By sitting on it. He was a fat toddler til age 4.....and a mean one once he had teeth. In our teens i blackmailed him into doing the dishes by taking the internet away.... Fun times

    Im obviously the older (oldest?) sister.

    [–] Children in multi-sibling households, what lessons did you learn that the only child might never get? Felises 7 points ago in AskReddit

    Little Brother and me were at war with each other our whole childhood. We still covered for each other. we could identify moms car driving up the road so we could take apart the tv again (mom hid the remote and the tv cable to keep us from watching tv when she wasnt home.) And hide the elements where she kept them and went to play innocently

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. Felises 14 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Were like "lite" nurses I guess so this is somewhat in our jobdescription to be in the room - so it seems like a sideeffect of our current social situation in our workplace that we act as third party witness too.

    I just wondered since our doctors are all male and dont seem to have much issues with their patients at all (neither do we). Everyone seems pretty respectful towards us and the docs (okay, sometimes someone is pissed about waiting).

    [–] Rant: I'm your doctor, please stop. Felises 124 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Im a medical assistance trainee - is this the reason we have to come into the Room and stand by even when we arent "needed" in the moment?

    [–] I live in a Houston suburb, and this is our water. The utility district claims *this* is drinkable. Our entire area is dealing with this, and I want to bring attention to it. It cannot be safe. Felises 1 points ago in videos

    Growing up and living my whole life near the alps i realised only a couple years ago not everyone gets that kind of fresh water. Just the chalk is annoying but a small Price to pay. I was reallllyyy confused about the chlorine in drinking Water...

    [–] TIFU by increasing my age range on tinder Felises 8 points ago in tifu

    Maybe it helps maybe it doesnt: my stepbrother came out by presenting his boyfriend to the family on his dads 60s birthday - noone had a idea (except his "blood"- sister maybe). Nothing happend aside from "well, okay. Why didnt you tell us earlier about that nice guy?" And that man is preeettty old fashioned usually.

    [–] What's your best "Fuck it, I'm out!" story? Felises 77 points ago in AskReddit

    A Girl i worked with called me over another girls phone there in HER free day to scream at me for taking a half day off the next day(boss was okay with it).

    I quit a Week later.

    [–] Tora went on her first walk outside Felises 3 points ago in aww

    We used a Harness and leash on our cat to let her inspect "outside" without danger. She wasnt a fan but it worked after a while. It was the best thing ever my 8year old self expierenced until that point. Who else walks a CAT... She managed to get 16y/old before a car hit her and never failed to come home (shes fine! Purring on my lap right now. Lost a leg but not her life.)
