    [–] Alzheimer's disease: mounting evidence that herpes virus is a cause betteroffinbed 6 points ago in science

    I have never been more relieved to have genital herpes (HSV-II) instead of oral herpes (HSV-I).

    [–] ELI5: Why can some meats be consumed while not fully cooked betteroffinbed 1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    Hi! I just wanted to comment and let you know that I used to raise salmonella-free chickens for use in biomedical research! They exist, after many generations of working toward SPF status. Our company had 3 different genetic lines.

    [–] This is what a blow dried cow looks like betteroffinbed 4 points ago in interestingasfuck

    Do you live in a place that has both cows and cold winters? Because cows absolutely grow a long winter coat.

    [–] Official Q&A for Friday, October 19, 2018 betteroffinbed 1 points ago in running

    I don't know if it is or not. That's what I'm trying to ask here. How did YOU learn to run with good form? Did you have a coach? A personal trainer? Did you just watch youtube videos and figured it out on your own?

    [–] Official Q&A for Friday, October 19, 2018 betteroffinbed 1 points ago in running

    I love running, but I have been struggling for years to "get started." I have gotten myself up to being able to run a full 5k distance, but always have to stop because of shin splints.

    I have watched countless youtube videos, read articles, read the wiki here, done couch to 5k, 10k, etc. I am always doing something wrong, because the shin splints are a constant problem, and it's really getting me frustrated and depressed.

    How can I learn to run without injury? Are there private coaches/personal trainers who I can hire? Do I need to see a medical specialist about my shins?

    If you struggled to learn, even with couch to 5k, what helped you?

    [–] "Bralet boom and why the underwire is under fire" betteroffinbed 242 points ago in femalefashionadvice

    I think some ladies with smaller breasts like them because they look cute and are comfortable. I am about a 34D and they don't provide enough support for me, but I wish I could wear them! I love wearing sports bras sometimes when I just don't wanna deal with a regular bra.

    [–] What brand have you finally learned your lesson with and what was the final straw/breaking point? betteroffinbed 1 points ago in femalefashionadvice

    Interesting, I HATE Ameican Eagle jeans. They are the right size on my hips/butt but way too tight on my thighs. I guess it's good different brands are shaped differently. I love Old Navy jeans.

    Don't worry, another commenter pointed out that all this was very likely performed after death!

    [–] TIL Joey's character in FRIENDS was not supposed to be dumb, according to the original script. It was only when Matt LeBlanc auditioned for Joey, he put a "different spin" on the character, which was liked by the creators of the show. betteroffinbed 30 points ago in todayilearned

    Yeah, I liked Joey better in the earlier seasons. They definitely took character quirks for all the characters and amplified them quite a bit. I binged the whole series on Netflix a few months ago after never seeing it before. Watching it all in the span of a few weeks made it pretty clear how the series changed over the years.

    [–] Help with Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%? betteroffinbed 4 points ago in SkincareAddicts

    It has made a huge difference for my skin. :) It has made my pores less visible, improved my skin texture, and reduced redness in my cheeks. I've been using it for a couple weeks.

    [–] Help with Niacinamide 10% + Zinc 1%? betteroffinbed 1 points ago * (lasted edited 22 days ago) in SkincareAddicts

    I use the same product and I love it. I put 3 drops on my fingers and apply it all over my face, then use the Natural Moisturizing Factors + HA moisturizer over it. Maybe try using that moisturizer instead, since it's made by the same company? I find these two products work very well together. When my skin is looking really dry I also use some of their plant-derived squalene, too. It's improved my skin SO MUCH in just a couple weeks.

    Edited to add, sometimes when I first put it on it makes a foamy/white sort of reaction on my skin but if I just keep rubbing it in, it goes away. I put it on bare skin after showering in the morning, and after Differin in the evening. It feels the same either way.

    [–] HELP - Flaky skin, itchy on my scalp since a year ago... betteroffinbed 7 points ago in SkincareAddicts

    What kind of shampoo are you using? I had a problem like this and switching to sulfate free shampoos helped a lot!

    You might also have luck trying a T-Gel shampoo. I did that also, but ultimately getting rid of sulfates fixed the problem for me.

    [–] [Acne] Holy mother of hydrocolloids betteroffinbed 3 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    It definitely reduces inflammation, but the redness is still there depending on how bad it was when you put it on the night before.

    [–] [Acne] Holy mother of hydrocolloids betteroffinbed 1 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    Aw man! That sucks. For me it's the worst when I leave work and I'm at a red light or in traffic.

    [–] [Acne] Holy mother of hydrocolloids betteroffinbed 4 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    Yeah, I usually put the bandage on first and then put the topical stuff on the rest of my face. It sticks pretty well.

    [–] [Acne] Holy mother of hydrocolloids betteroffinbed 4 points ago in SkincareAddiction

    Same! The hardest part for me is trying to leave the darn thing alone until I can get home and put a bandage on it.
