    [–] What do you do about Lithium hand tremors? m0le 1 points ago in bipolar

    Drink (even) more water, and if your levels are on the upper end of the therapeutic range you can reduce your dose but that comes with the obvious caveats.

    There are anti-parkinson drugs out there that apparently can help, but my pdoc said if it gets bad enough to require that I'd try a different mood stabiliser instead of adding another drug with its own side effects to the mix.

    [–] What is the hottest (spicy) food that you've ever consumed and what were the consequences (if any) afterward? m0le 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Daves Ultimate Insanity Sauce.

    I like my chilli sauces. This one doesn't like me. Its stupidly, crazily hot, and reacts badly with my intestines so I make very loud gurgling and rippling noises for some time after eating it.

    Pooping is no more fun than expected, but the added gas pressure adds to the drama, especially if you're in a shared bathroom. Bonus marks for echoes.

    [–] What’s something a lot of people want that you have/had, and why wasn’t it as great as it sounds? m0le 1 points ago in AskReddit

    Mania. You have loads of energy! Enthusiasm! No need to sleep!

    Well, yes and no. You have no ability to sleep, which isn't quite the same thing. You have energy, but without focus you essentially end up with ADHD type flitting between things.

    The worst thing is impulse control issues, which depending on the severity of the mania ranges from boxes of new expensive unaffordable hobby equipment showing up to making friends with your local emergency services folks (ambulance or police, flip a coin).

    [–] Redditors who were on antidepressants, what made you quit taking them? m0le 1 points ago in AskReddit

    I've taken many different ones, most didn't work for me. The current ones do but have some pretty annoying side effects. Still better than not having them.

    [–] What's your go-to joke when someone asks you to "tell a joke?" m0le 1 points ago in AskReddit

    What's the fastest cake in the world?

    Scone (s'gone).

    What's the second fastest?

    Meringue (said like the sound of a car whizzing past)

    [–] What is a popular movie everyone has seen that you have no interest in watching? m0le 2 points ago in AskReddit

    However many reasons why. Sounds like a bad idea to watch stuff like that if you have issues of your own.

    [–] What is a simple, but harmless, way to mess with somebody? m0le 17 points ago in AskReddit

    For some reason, processing the paperwork is taking a very long time...

    [–] What is a simple, but harmless, way to mess with somebody? m0le 54 points ago in AskReddit

    Flip image upside down. Set as wallpaper. Use ctrl-alt-arrows to rotate the orientation of the screen so it appears normal. Move start bar to a different side of the screen.

    Swap left and right mouse buttons.

    Add a tiny piece of tape / post it to the mouse sensor.

    You now have a mouse that doesn't work. Once fixed, everything is reversed. Once that's sorted you still can't click anything because its just a background.

    [–] Fictional Parahuman Game m0le 2 points ago in Parahumans

    Shinji "whiny fucker" Ikari from Evangelion (mostly because if you could have a trigger event in that universe, he would've, repeatedly).

    [–] What’s the coolest sci-fi technology? m0le 1 points ago in AskReddit

    The Xeelee Ring is pretty impressive just from a scale point of view - building something massive enough to mess with the gravity of superclusters is epic.

    [–] ELI5: Why is phrenology considered a pseudoscience? m0le 1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    Unfortunately that theory (skull shape affects behavior) is not backed up by any evidence. Without evidence, it isn't science. You're essentially talking about a cargo cult - something that has the shape and trappings of a scientific discipline without the actual science bit.

    [–] Its kinda sad knowing the only time I'm truly happy is when I'm manic m0le 6 points ago in bipolar

    I much prefer the deeper, less fleeting sensation you get when you're feeling OK in euthymia.

    Though hypomania is, I have to say, both amazing and useful, it also damn near bankrupts me every time.

    [–] Random thought but I'm trying to think of powers for a cape based around a jigsaw puzzle m0le 10 points ago in Parahumans

    With decent crack potential, they could summon forcefield walls with different images (my initial thought was the looney tunes roadrunner tunnel gag). Can cover entrances to alleys, summon it behind them with pics of other heroes to give the impression of backup, etc.
