What's an idea you have that should be an actual thing?

  • Fucking Toslink: one round optical fiber in the middle, but it plugs in in only one position out of four, and you can't feel which way the female connector is. EU should fine the assholes responsible.

  • Reminds me of when I used an anti-wrinkle cream as a hand cream once. It anti-wrinkled the skin on my knuckles, so making a fist, the knuckle skin went so tight it started to tear.

  • It may be that your gut health is constantly poor when stress triggers things. I used to become ill from cold exposure for several years - tyramine from foods leaked through the small intestine to the bloodstream (which is bad) for about three days after each exposure.

  • "Only rice" is an elimination diet for allergies that I should have tried decades ago, but dumbass mainstream medicine never recommended.

    I found out there are slow allergies mediated by immunoglobulin G that you can't detect while eating, so I did a blood test. Found some strong positives (milks, eggs), and then through elimination found out false negatives that I also can't eat (peanut, soy), and, thanks to the doctor whom I went out of my way to see about IgG, some that are typically harmful to those with IBS that I also need to avoid (gluten, sunflower oil, rapeseed oil). Supplemental protective agents Aloe barbadensis, xyloglucan, and butyrate also help. Getting really healthy now - no more IBS if I don't eat mistakes.

    The mainstream doctors say that's all nonsense and that I'm a hypochondriac who perceives having gotten better for no reason.

    My previous successful departure from the mainstream was making my gallbladder go from "full of stones" to "empty except a thin layer of sediment on the bottom" as seen by ultrasound. Now that there's proof, the doctors can't dismiss that. https://www.quora.com/What-are-some-good-diet-considerations-for-Gallstone-sufferers/answers/107344862

  • It's for all the pets at homes hearing the same audio, now with original insects and birds outside and mice in the walls.

  • A cool guide Types of plugs in the world
  • Can't plug it in with one hand. The cover needs an opening mechanism.

  • A cool guide Types of plugs in the world
  • What we really need is a USB-C-style reversible plug with data and variable voltage where neutral and phase never reverse and earth is always there.

    Lacking that, I vote for Type N because it's small, polarised, and the pins are halfway-insulated. I don't like that the frame is symmetrical, so in the dark, the only way to tell which way to plug in is to feel the pins and the holes, same as USB-A. I reject all that hurt to step on.

  • A cool guide to heat absorption between different colored T-shirts
  • Look at the sun through a white shirt, then black. Which is brighter?

  • A cool guide to heat absorption between different colored T-shirts
  • "The amount of heat gained by a Bedouin exposed to the hot desert is the same whether he wears a black or a white robe. The additional heat absorbed by the black robe was lost before it reached the skin."

    Bedouin robes, the scientists noted, are worn loose. Inside, the cooling happens by convection - either through a bellows action, as the robes flow in the wind, or by a chimney sort of effect, as air rises between robe and skin.

    Thus it was conclusively demonstrated that, at least for Bedouin robes, black is as cool as any other colour.

  • Just a reminder

  • Immigration! ... people that contribute less to the economy and commit more crime than locals ... . (Stats are out there. ...)

    Have you considered harm/benefit planet-wide? Is it really better leaving the escaping people under oppression / war / climate disaster caused by pollution from the West? They'll contribute even less to the economy in their home country.
