    [–] 🔥 Two penguins share a hug 🔥 ThisAintA5Star 1 points ago in NatureIsFuckingLit

    The common denominator across al those various relationships/things is you.

    [–] [update] my (24f) boyfriend (29m) is trying to be a streamer and it’s hard to explain to him that it won’t happen. ThisAintA5Star 1 points ago in relationship_advice

    Games are absolutely not my thing, but I can certainly understand the draw and joy of an alternate universe to escape to if other things in your life aren’t what you want, or if something really bad has happened in life like someone dying... numbing the pain and denial is so so desirable.

    Lol, what fugly bitter fucks they are. MGTOW - stands for Men going their own way... which is what the sub is about and condones. So... Men can go their own way (although, as you can see from their obsession with women, obviously not) get divorced, lesve their wives/kids/societal expectations behind, but when a woman does it... shes a terrible person.

    Jesus christ these people have the self-awarenss of maggots.

    Fucking bullshit. If you hate your job, or are in a dysfunctional relationship, you’re going to be unhappy. You can’t just pretend to be positive and the lack of love disappears or your shitty job becomes great.

    Circmstances do create unhappiness or happiness in our lives. When our needs then wants are met, we’re more likely to feel secure and happy than if they’re not.

    [–] How do I start loving the gym when I’m in pain, out of shape, and depressed? ThisAintA5Star 2 points ago in xxfitness

    How does zombies run work? Is there music in the app, that I just listen to a soundtrack of theirs, or do I listen to my own stuff ? Do I need to have my data on?

    I want to try it, but I dont have music on my cellphone at the moment... so if I had no music, am I just listening to nothing until a random zombie attack comes?

    Disqualifications against Symptomatic Sickle Cell trait only exist where there is risk to the individual. Its not some conspiracy to keep people out of the industry, people who are at risk are screened out for their own good. Its not a big deal, and the slippery slope fallacy will not be entertained here,

    For the US Airforce:

    "... Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) is disqualifying for all flying and special operational duties. Symptomatic Sickle Cell Trait (SCT) is disqualifying only for FC I/IA, FC II, and FC III duties. All initial flying class physicals require documented Sickledex™ results and if positive hemoglobin electrophoresis is required. Asymptomatic sickle cell trait (Hb AS) confirmed on hemoglobin electrophoresis does not require a waiver and Hb AS, with Hb S up to 45 % is acceptable for flying duties. Symptomatic sickle cell trait and sickle cell diseases (Hb SS and other heterozygous sickling disorders other than trait) are disqualifying. Anemia is not associated with sickle cell trait and therefore should not be attributed to the sickle cell trait..." - 2011

    “No trainee is allowed to participate in physical training until all labs have results, squadrons are notified, and trainees with sickle cell trait have been briefed on SCT," Gardner-Wood said. "Roughly one percent of trainees test positive for SCT. By identifying those with the trait, it makes them aware that they have the trait and allows them to look out for symptoms related to SCT and a sickling crisis."

    The sickling crisis refers to sudden severe pain, fatigue, lightheadedness and other symptoms that would cause worry in one who has been identified as having the sickle cell trait.

    “Trainees who test positive for the trait do not have sickle cell,” Garner-Wood said. “While SCD is a disqualifying factor for participation in the military, having the trait is not.

    “All trainees who test positive for sickle cell are provided a briefing of what the sickle cell trait is, and what the risks of physical training and SCT are,” she continued. “Overall risk of an exercise-associated sickle crisis is very small, but all trainees with SCT are instructed to be smart when exercising; increase intensity of workouts gradually, stay well hydrated and eat properly.”

    Individuals with SCTs are advised that if they experience unusual symptoms, especially during a workout, to stop the activity and seek medical attention.

    “After the briefing, all trainees have the option to request an appointment with a medical provider should they have additional questions,” Garner-Wood said.

    When presence of the SCT is confirmed, trainees are issued a red medical alert ID tag embossed with “SCT” in addition to their identification tags. Trainees wear this identification for the duration of BMT and Airmen’s Week at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland. Once the Airmen move on to technical training, they are encouraged to continue being aware of any unusual symptoms they may experience during physical activity and always seek medical attention.


    [–] Losing weight as a short person: about as unfair as not being able to reach high shelves ThisAintA5Star -1 points ago in xxfitness

    Yes, as a shorter person you cant eat as much as someone taller... because you don’t need to!

    You don’t need those extra calories, so... its futile complaining about how unfair it is.

    [–] What makes a mother and her two adult daughters voluntarily starve themselves to death? Norway, 2017 ThisAintA5Star 8 points ago in UnresolvedMysteries

    While they are collectively delusional, I think in both circumstances we should look more to one person who manipulated/raised others into their delusions. So, not like a sudden coinciding psychosis or delusion, but really one that was forced upon the others.

    [–] The boys would *never* say that. ThisAintA5Star 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Exactly, its a joke, and yes fairly common at that, by both men and women. And with her stupid baity comment ‘you know things’, I’d say its a pretty common response. I likely would’ve made a similar reply, as a joke, while also thinking the person was a bit odd/dumb for the statement ‘oh! you know things” as if its some surprise.

    [–] The boys would *never* say that. ThisAintA5Star 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I hate it when people say that, its so patronizing. I’m not literally sorry, its just a figure of speech. So when someone says ‘dont be sorry’ I just think the person is a fuckwit or being unnecessarily picky about a common social convention that doesnt actually hurt anyone.

    [–] The boys would *never* say that. ThisAintA5Star 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    To be fair, her comment was basically a bait into anyone she was talking to to make an off-hand self-deprecating remark.

    “Oh, you know things” ? The fuck. What a moronic statement. Many people, male or female, would likely respond with something self-deprecating or so ething to brush aside the comment because says “yes, I do” would likely get you accused of being arrogant or something.

    Self-deprecating humor doesnt signify to me that someone doesnt have confidence, it’s just a bit of light humor.

    [–] This stuff taste so much better than halo top ThisAintA5Star 1 points ago in 1200isplenty

    Wow, I didnt know they have matcha flavor. I definitely want to taste that.

    Is anyone from HI? Where does ine purchase HaloTop in HI?

    [–] This stuff taste so much better than halo top ThisAintA5Star 1 points ago in 1200isplenty

    Let it get soft.

    When I purchase it, I leave it out on the bench for a but before I eat some. It softens and is creamy.

    I like the mint choc chip one.

    [–] Chinese tenses are much easier than English ThisAintA5Star 1 points ago in ChineseLanguage

    I still count not having to conjugate verbs and no declension of noun as a big win though.

    [–] Chinese tenses are much easier than English ThisAintA5Star 1 points ago in ChineseLanguage

    When I speak to native chinese speakers in English who have at least some English vocab forbasic-intermediate interactions with foreigners, I definitely find they dont use the right tenses of verb, and often use ‘he’ instead of he/she/it.

    [–] Joined an MMA gym yesterday. I haven't felt this motivated and excited about working out... ever. ThisAintA5Star 1 points ago in xxfitness

    I really like boxingor kick-boxing as a cardio andfun workout. I got really into it. I thought about MMA or BJJ, but personally, I have zero desire to get that up close to sweaty people and have to grapple/ touch them.
