    [–] Near miss! ifyouhaveany 5 points ago in WhyWereTheyFilming

    So I looked it up because I was wondering the same thing, and inexistent is correct & means the same thing as nonexistent.

    [–] YSK that the primary driver of deforestation in the Amazon is due to cattle ranching, accounting for 80% of current deforestation rates. ifyouhaveany -14 points ago * (lasted edited 16 hours ago) in YouShouldKnow

    I'm helping the planet by not reproducing, I'm gonna eat what the fuck I want. I've already done 1000x more than anyone who has had a kid.

    Edit: Downvote all you want but I'm right, nothing more eco friendly you can do than not have kids.

    [–] Accumen ifyouhaveany 1 points ago in medlabprofessionals

    Just had them come through our lab not too long ago. It honestly wasn't a bad experience imo, they really took what we had to say into consideration and their recommendations aren't set in stone (at least not where I work). We haven't seen the full report yet but our leadership has been pretty transparent throughout the whole process and I know my manager will fight to keep what she feels is necessary. Lmk if you have any specific questions I might be able to answer.

    [–] Cursed_ family portrait ifyouhaveany 28 points ago in cursedcomments

    It definitely can still be a death sentence, just at ~35 years instead of 20. Some people live longer but it's not the norm yet and plenty of CF patients can still expect to have to get lung transplants. People who have kids knowing they may have to endure all that, doctor visits, infections, etc depending on the seriousness of the disease are selfish and cruel.

    [–] You can see the regret on his face ifyouhaveany 3 points ago in instant_regret

    Plenty of women have mirrors and do look, for some it helps with pushing. Plenty also choose not to look, it's a personal preference.

    [–] I love my daughter ifyouhaveany 1 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    Omg, I had the bowl cut, too, because my dad loved it. I got called a little boy everywhere I went (didn't help that they forced me to play t-ball and sell tickets door to door, which I did NOT want to do).

    I'm very much not a girlie-girl now, but I have lovely long hair that I take good care of after years of sporting pixie cuts, faux-hawks & mohawks.

    [–] Adding a drop of ink to ethanol ifyouhaveany 1 points ago in oddlysatisfying

    I dunno but I have access to ink, ethanol, and I microscope so I kind of want to go try it out myself.

    [–] Not my leg ifyouhaveany 4 points ago in medizzy

    Patients get very tired of saying their name and date of birth at hospitals but they don't realize it's for their own safety. I know it's tiresome to say it a thousand times during a stay, but better to get the right medicine/operation /lab results than not just because you got sick of properly identifying yourself.

    [–] I have no idea. ifyouhaveany 3 points ago in whatisthisthing

    I'm 100% sure this is just a DIWhy coat hook someone made.

    [–] Saw this thing on the left at x400 magnification on a microscope. Paramecium for scale. ifyouhaveany 2 points ago in whatisthisthing

    What is the specimen, OP? I work in a lab and I'm inclined to say dirt/debris. Like another poster said, brownian movement is probably why it looks like it's vibrating.

    [–] Sure, go ahead and triple the dose, why not? ifyouhaveany 9 points ago in ShitMomGroupsSay

    Lots of people misdiagnose worms, period.

    Souce: Work in a lab.

    [–] What penile cancer did to my body. ifyouhaveany 27 points ago in MedicalGore

    You don't really hear about it because it's very rare. Not to say it isn't important to be aware of it (obviously), but it's just very uncommon.

    [–] Boston's got interesting problems ifyouhaveany 5 points ago in funny

    Lol "don't call people vermin!"

    Proceeds to tell someone to kill themselves.

    [–] I finally bought a weighted blanket! ifyouhaveany 1 points ago in Fibromyalgia

    I'm a terrible sleeper and I toss and turn a lot because I get achey laying in one position too long, so I'm curious to see how I like it. I'll definitely update with results!

    [–] A man with road rage followed me to work today. ifyouhaveany 25 points ago in TwoXChromosomes

    I had a guy do something similar to me and I called the cops because I was afraid to go home, so they had me lead him to a gas station where they were waiting for him.

    [–] I finally bought a weighted blanket! ifyouhaveany 3 points ago in Fibromyalgia

    I hope you enjoy it! I'm so excited to get mine, I'm just worried my puppy will chew on it!

    [–] In a way? ifyouhaveany 6 points ago in technicallythetruth

    Thank god, this one has been fucking awful.
