    [–] Teenagers with school starting times before 8:30 a.m. may be at particular risk of experiencing depression and anxiety due to compromised sleep quality, according to a recent URMC study. The_Fallout_Kid 0 points ago in science

    It wouldn't change anything. Students would just stay up even later. The majority of my students stay up past 1am on school nights as it is. Move a school ahead a couple hours and these same students will likely just stay up past 3 am. You want kids to sleep more, take away their technology 4 hours before their "bedtime" and keep it away until they wake up in the morning.

    [–] Old Walnut Slab (need advice) The_Fallout_Kid 1 points ago in woodworking

    Why fill the voids and cracks? They add character. Also, that is an insanely beautiful piece you have. Absolutely gorgeous.

    [–] Need help adding finish to a pine coffee table. The_Fallout_Kid 1 points ago in woodworking

    You are correct. Tung oil is fine. Danish oil is also fine. For either, find a rag, dampen the rag with oil, rub it on the wood. 30 mins later take 220 grit sandpaper and gently sand the table (this step will force the oil into the wood and remove the tackyness- sticky feeling). Wait 24 hours, then sand with 0000 steel wool. Then reapply oil. Do this 3 times or more. Any rags that are damp with tung oil should be kept in a sealed glass jar, as they may spontaneously combust.

    [–] So this was handed to me by some idiot at my door this morning. (Spoilers: I'm Asian) The_Fallout_Kid 14 points ago in canada

    This seems like a natural progression to me. When you give a platform to groups like BLM in Canada (that are racist as well), who denounce the opinions of people based on having white skin, even the BLM Toronto leader has been on camera calling black people who disagree with their message "coons", you open the door for more segregation. If BLM is able to operate and get media attention, of course white nationalist organizations are going to attempt the same. It's not rocket science.

    [–] My sister and bro in laws kitchen knife set The_Fallout_Kid 5 points ago in oddlysatisfying

    I like the show because I'm a hobbyist and it's all good fun, but any professional bladesmith or blacksmith I have met has nothing good to say about it. Really best not to mention it to them.

    IIRC, Damascus steel was erroneously named after Damascus because a Western trader first encountered that type of steel there. It was crucible steel, and we have a pretty good idea as to how it was made.

    [–] Tumblr user judges a book by its cover. Gets told by another user. The_Fallout_Kid -13 points ago in facepalm

    either side

    If you are referring to the political spectrum, both were on the Left. The Nazis were the National Socialist Party.

    That is incorrect. This man is actually fairly slow and should support the board on his outside leg, but, if you can't do this you're a useless framer.

    [–] I think reddit might appreciate my friend's graduation cap! The_Fallout_Kid 1 points ago in gaming

    I know. I'm Canadian, have graduated with B.A and B.ED. Just remember that (at least if your in Ontario) OSAP is the biggest scam in the history of scams (not really the biggest, but pretty significant). The grants are a facade. You're paying 5.2 floating interest.... which is insane. If you pay you minimum monthly, the interest eat up anything you thought you were "given". In addition, you can only earn $2000/semester; earnings that are directly reflected by the loss of grant money (so basically, if you're an industrious person trying to pay off your debt, you will work for "free" until your available grants have been removed).

    In short, the grants appear to help, but if you do the maths, it's a scam. Either work for a couple years and save, get a parent/grandparent to consign a student line of credit (muuuuch lower interest), or do the smart thing and go into trades.

    [–] President Donald Trump has fired FBI Director James Comey The_Fallout_Kid 11 points ago in PoliticalDiscussion

    Man..... Makes me wish you guys were a little further away from us here in Canada. When Trump was elected, I had the same strange, world altering feeling as when I first learned of the 9/11 attacks. Clearly not on the same level of devastation at the time, but as this administration continues to unfurl its wings, it becomes ever more frightening. It seems very clear at this point, having reviewed the opinions of both sides, that the Trump administration has colluded with Russia. To what end? I'm not sure. The continued erosion of your democratic process; your checks and balances for responsible government is very scary to watch from up here. I worry that your country will erupt into some kind of civil war, or militant revolt against what appears to be a puppet dictatorship blossoming in your midst. I am hopeful that logic will prevail, but each day seems to bring more surreal happenings.

    [–] Clean Energy Isn't Just the Future—It's the Present The_Fallout_Kid 5 points ago in Futurology

    That, and the fact that we don't have an energy shortage, we have an energy storage shortage. More solar doesn't address the problem. The problem is harnessing the mass amounts of energy we waste during non-peak hours, to be used during those peak hours of need.

    [–] Leupold VX2 or Vortex Crossfire 2? The_Fallout_Kid 1 points ago in guns

    Vortex is solid, but I did go to Leopold for the rings. They don't budge.

    [–] Leupold VX2 or Vortex Crossfire 2? The_Fallout_Kid 1 points ago in guns

    I have the vortex and love it. Holds true, good reticle (aka the best reticle I can afford). I have the 3-9x and keep it exclusively at 9x.

    [–] "Reloads are good if they're from a reputable company my dudes." The_Fallout_Kid 2 points ago in guns

    In the last few boxes of 8mm, I've actually had about 6 rounds that have the wrong case size (they'll partially chamber, but won't seat). Shit happens I guess. This was federal.
