    Most of our oxygen comes from phytoplankton.

    [–] Why do people think things like microwaves or ultrasound can hurt you? joefus1o4 1 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago) in ask

    I guess my actual interest is in whether or not these technologies have an effect on brainwaves. I’m not really worried about microwaves physically hurting us. Yes in theory they can burn us, but it’s extremely unlikely we’re going to be hit with the concentration of microwaves necessary to harm us in our daily lives.

    I agree with the patent not meaning that the tech exists, and I’m sure it probably doesn’t. But that doesn’t mean that exposure to electromagnetic radiation doesn’t have an effect on brainwaves. I just haven’t found any concrete studies on the matter.

    [–] Why do people think things like microwaves or ultrasound can hurt you? joefus1o4 1 points ago in ask

    There is no evidence that microwaves cause cancer. They are non-ionizing electromagnetic radiation. They can’t break chemical bonds or directly damage tissue in the same way that X-ray, UV, or Gamma can. All they can do is excite molecules to move enough to produce heat. That heat can burn you and hurt you for sure, but you’d need a very focused hit that you’d be unlikely to run into in real life. So excited molecules can burn, but won’t give you cancer.

    The cancer argument isn’t something I’m concerned about with this technology. Mostly I want to know if there are effects on brainwaves. I’ve seen a couple pseudo science articles saying that they do have an effect. However, I haven’t found concrete evidence confirming exposure causing any sort of disruption or manipulation to brainwaves.

    [–] Kratom for a pre workout joefus1o4 2 points ago in kratom

    I weight lift 3 mornings a week and always take kratom before hand. Makes me feel awake and ready to go.

    [–] What is something that everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime? joefus1o4 1 points ago in AskReddit

    A really bad breakup. Heartbreak is rough, but it can force you to really examine your life. I think that kind of pain can really help you grow.

    [–] HMF while I assault an innocent employee joefus1o4 85 points ago in holdmyfries

    That article was very poorly written and chock full of spelling errors. I got so angry while reading it I nearly trashed my local planet fitness.

    [–] Does this look like a caterpillar? joefus1o4 2 points ago in KratomGarden

    I have a big lizard that lives on my tree. He’s apparently been slacking on his job. He better pick up the slack cause rent ain’t free.

    [–] Does this look like a caterpillar? joefus1o4 2 points ago in KratomGarden

    I’ve had this beauty for about 3 years and never had anything attempt to eat it before. Now something is tearing it up, and quickly.

    [–] Will Mirror Mode in Sidecar Show Cursor on Main Screen? joefus1o4 2 points ago in mac

    I would go for it, but I can't risk running into beta bugs since I use my laptop on a daily basis for work. We need someone to volunteer as tribute.

    The real FU was getting coffee at McDonald’s.

    [–] What's pissing you off right now? joefus1o4 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I’m 30 and both of my knees and both of my shoulders hurt like a 70 year old. The shoulders make sense... I’ve had a few injuries. But I can’t figure out why my knees have started hurting. I’m not rough on them, I’m in good shape, I exercise regularly, and I even avoid running and stick to high intensity cardio workouts instead. I can’t figure out why I’ve got this old man knee pain this young...

    [–] Offering me less than 50% and then loosing his shit when I said I don’t want to be low balled joefus1o4 1 points ago in ChoosingBeggars

    What’s more pathetic than a guy who feels he identifies with a (super genius) cartoon character so much, that he needs to try to embody him in his interactions with real people. Seems like less of a Rick and more of Jerry to me.

    [–] What never seems to be portrayed accurately in media? joefus1o4 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Drugs. Drug use. What drugs do. How dangerous they are. How easy it is to overdose. What “detox” looks like. It’s almost always blown way out of proportion and grandly exaggerated.

    I’m not saying some people don’t have problems, but it’s really not as bad as it’s made out to be. In fact most drug overdoses come from people taking a bunch of things at once, or getting sold something laced with something else. Most people who’ve used drugs don’t ever end up with an addiction. Even things like cocaine and heroin. You don’t just take drugs and die or become a homeless crackhead.

    [–] Making Cultured Butter = Bonus Treats! joefus1o4 1 points ago in fermentation

    Hey no worries. It would probably be easiest to just create a new post in r/fermentation. It will give you an option to post an image.

    [–] Making Cultured Butter = Bonus Treats! joefus1o4 1 points ago in fermentation

    Super interesting! Glad it worked out well, and you got a good batch. Would love to see a photo of your finished butter.

    [–] Cultured butter tips and clarification joefus1o4 2 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in fermentation

    Check out my post from a week couple weeks ago. I put a lot of information on how I did this, and lot of others added helpful info too.

    Also, if you have access to unpasteurized milk, you can just take the cream from there. You can do it a variety of ways, but one easy way is to just let the milk sit until the cream and milk separate (24 hours to be totally sure) and simply just ladle out the cream from the top without breaking the cream line and dipping into the milk.

    [–] Making Cultured Butter = Bonus Treats! joefus1o4 1 points ago in fermentation

    Maybe the volume is the issue after all. One thing I've noticed is that the longer I let it sit in the fridge, the longer it takes to whip. If I put it in the fridge for an hour it whips pretty quickly, but if I put it in overnight it'll take a lot longer.

    [–] "Don't guilt trip me for not paying you, you don't even need the money and being greedy is a sin." My racist sister in law demands I turn down my clients to tutor her daughter when it suits her. And while I'm at it, I should come in early to fix her breakfast. joefus1o4 15 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in ChoosingBeggars

    It’s absolutely mind boggling that in this day and age people still get hung up on skin color. Seriously guys? Why are you actively choosing to be stupid? People choosing hatred that is supported by literally nothing is so infuriating.

    Side note: True Africans are the only race of people who are 100% Homo Sapiens. Every other race has either Neanderthal or Denisovan DNA. So the whole “pure white” thing is such utter garbage. So if purity is something your tiny racist brain cares about, then science has proven Africans to be the only “pure” race.

    [–] Making Cultured Butter = Bonus Treats! joefus1o4 1 points ago in fermentation

    hmm... I'm honestly not sure what's going on. I do know that sometimes it can take quite a while for the butter to separate from the buttermilk, but 20 mins sounds like way too long. Is there anything else you do differently? How are you culturing your cream? Also, how long are you refrigerating your cream before whipping?

    [–] Efax wont let you cancel your account without speaking to an agent first which they make you wait in a que to do. joefus1o4 6 points ago in assholedesign

    I’m honestly probably going to have to. I was able to cancel my subscription over the phone, and the dude who was barely intelligible told me he’d give me a free month for my troubles. I told him that was fine, but I just want this account closed. That’s all I care about. Please close this account. He then started going off on some sales pitch which I cut off. Shortly thereafter I get an email saying my account has in fact not been canceled, that it has been upgraded, and I’m getting my first month of the upgrade for free. This company is absolute garbage.
