    [–] The truth Servalpur 16 points ago in WhitePeopleTwitter

    Also, the nausea tends to be far more intense from the tea made from seeds than from something like Oxy.

    It's one of my first choices because it simply works the best for me. First gen antihistamines tend to be far more general in terms of what receptors they hit, so they're often more effective at actually treating the problems. At a certain dose they can make you drowsy as well of course.

    And chances are if you go into a pharmacy and look for "Allergy pills", they'll be Diphenhydramine. At least in the US. It's considered a standard OTC here.

    Let me give you somewhere to start

    Granted, Diphenhydramine isn't the only antihistamine out there by a long shot. But it's many peoples first choice.

    [–] Yeeh baby! Servalpur 4 points ago in WTF

    So I've traveled all over Europe but never drove anywhere there, is the driving culture all that different from the US? Because 20 km/h over is just 12 mp/h over the speed limit, and to be honest that's really not too bad depending on where you are.

    In Michigan for instance, on highway 696 if you're not doing 15 mp/h over in the fast lanes, you're likely gonna get honked at.

    [–] Why toothaches tend to be linked to headaches. Servalpur 1 points ago in interestingasfuck

    Fun fact that most people don't know: Opioids aren't very effective at all at dealing with tooth pain because of this. I learned that little zinger when I had a terribly abscessed tooth, with swelling so bad it looked like I had a baseball on my face. The dentist said he wanted to send me straight to a hospital, but didn't because I told him how bad I was with money at the time. Took a week of draining and high powered antibiotics just to be able to remove the tooth.

    In that time I tried everything from Advil, to high doses of Oxycodone, to weed to help. The advil helped a tiny bit. The Oxy hardly at all. The weed was actually kind of - sort of effective.

    Literally the most painful thing I've ever experienced. Worse than broken bones, migraines, etc etc. In the end I found something that was effective for the pain; Dextromethorphan. Turns out dissosciatives are actually really great pain medications.

    Yeah, but a Bacon King tastes so damn good.

    [–] U.S. General Considered Nuclear Response in Vietnam War, Cables Show Servalpur 3 points ago in history

    Not only did he return, but his best moments were yet to come. I would argue that his finest accomplishment was the post war governance of Japan, and his performance in the Korean war was also very good.

    [–] U.S. General Considered Nuclear Response in Vietnam War, Cables Show Servalpur 13 points ago in history

    No, we don't call being ordered to strategically retreat the Nuremberg defense. Jesus what a dumbass thing to say.

    [–] Footage Of A Harry Potter RPG Has Apparently Leaked Servalpur 18 points ago in xboxone

    Right? I've wanted a Bioware (circa 2009 DA:O Bioware) style HP RPG for so damn long now. There's so much potential.

    The only sad thing is that you know the property is too damn valuable for them to take any real risks. There won't be any real dark side options. Dark lords need not apply.

    [–] They hit a speed bump at high speed Servalpur 2 points ago in ContagiousLaughter

    Really depends on the kind of paint used. Most of the time something like Acetone can be used (preferably sparingly on a rag) all over the body and not be a problem. Maybe dry skin, but use a moisturizer after for a couple days.

    I worked as a indoor painter in a machine shop for a while on nights. Lacquer thinner/Acetone is everywhere in Fixture/Tooling/Machine shops, in little spray bottles. Especially if you worked with paint.

    As long as you get to the paint before it really dries, it should come off easy without a real need for a solvent. If it has time to dry, lacquer thinner/Acetone (depending on what's in the thinner) will take it off with a little work. Don't let the solvent sit on your skin for too long, it can start to really dry out your skin, which can start to hurt and burn.

    Source: It was common to spray someone with thinner if they annoyed you. If you let that sit on your clothes and soak in/not evaporate, it could burn quite bad on where it touched the skin.

    [–] RV Camper Graphic Design Starter Pack Servalpur 8 points ago in starterpacks

    Yep. I traveled the country in my car, and often ended up spending the night in a Walmart parking lot if nothing better was available/I didn't want to waste money on a hotel. Actually not too bad as far as things go. Bathroom and water/food available there as well, so at least it makes a decent temporary stop point.

    [–] RV Camper Graphic Design Starter Pack Servalpur 28 points ago in starterpacks

    Walmart is your solution. As much as I dislike the company on principal, it actually has a very good policy in regards to RVs. As long as you don't cause a disturbance, you can park overnight in their lots without being bothered.

    [–] TIL that the Japanese used houseflies coated in a bacterial slurry to spread cholera in China and kill an estimated 410,000 people during WWII. Servalpur 2 points ago in todayilearned

    It's so often mentioned that it could be a cliche, but I would really recommend anyone interested in Japan during that time to listen to the podcast hardcore History. Specifically the newest release, Supernova In The East. It's a subject that's not often discussed in the US, but will give you at least some insight on Japan culturally at the time.

    [–] Guns N. Roses’ Slash: “Rock isn’t mainstream anymore, and in some ways, I like that.” Servalpur 1 points ago in Music

    In the Ontario/Michigan area there's 89x (88.7FM) which is really good about filling out new content. You get some older stuff too, and admittedly it's "alternative" (though at this point in my opinion rock is rock), but I've been introduced to fair number of new stuff through it.

    [–] Her level of discipline and restraint is commendable Servalpur 1 points ago in BlackPeopleTwitter

    Right? It's good that she restrained herself, but this is the kind of conduct I'd expect from all cops, regardless of what's being said. The guy is being an incredible cunt, but he's on the ground, handcuffed, and clearly under control.

    If all cops behaved as responsibly and professionally as those pictured here, we wouldn't have problems with police brutality.

    [–] RIP TRAYVON Servalpur 11 points ago in BlackPeopleTwitter

    why is he talking about black on black violence?

    The same reason Fox News will mention it when a cop kills another unarmed black kid. Because they're disingenuous fucks who know they don't have a leg to stand on in terms of a real argument, so they do anything they can to shift peoples attention.

    Or just cut the bullshit and pick up a bottle of caffeine pills for $5 on Amazon. At 200mg per pill and 100 pills per bottle, you are getting more bang at 5 cents per dose than you would be at what, $3 for any of those energy drinks you mentioned.

    Alternatively, really skip the bullshit and use an actual stimulant instead of caffeine.

    [–] Leave Obama alone.. again Servalpur 5 points ago in BlackPeopleTwitter

    I don't think we disagree at all to be honest. I haven't and wouldn't say that black and white folks were treated even remotely equally, especially at the time. Especially among the poorest of the poor (though to be fair the vast majority of black folks at the time were extremely poor then because of slavery).

    All I'm saying (and I don't think you disagree?) is that rich white folks used the ingrained racism present in the population at the time to further divide and take advantage of the poor population. It's a tactic that has been used again and again in history, especially US history, and not just along color lines. In the '60s and '70s it was used to divide men and women. Using the ingrained sexism of the time to convince a large amount of men that if women entered the workplace at a equal playing level, men would suffer because they'd be competing with women for jobs.

    [–] Leave Obama alone.. again Servalpur 35 points ago in BlackPeopleTwitter

    I don't think anyone is saying that there's an equality between the treatment is poor blacks and whites during that time, at least I'm not. The point seemed to be that some poor whites were in a similar economic condition, but were tricked into turning against those that should have been natural allies. Other poor folk, regardless of color.

    [–] Stop bringing ancient views into the modern world Servalpur 2 points ago in MurderedByWords

    Not really. The issue is far more complicated than "A-okay", and differed wildly on the society and time in which you're talking about.
