TIL that there are two types of earwax: wet and dry

> the type of earwax you have comes down in part to your skin type, Dr. Shapiro explains. People with oilier skin may have wet earwax, while those with drier skin tend to have dry earwax, she says.

> People of East Asian descent are more likely to have dry earwax, while wet earwax seems to be more common with everyone else

Live Updates: Prosecutors Say Trump’s Attacks Are Threat to Trial
  • During jury duty, we got all sorts of shit for even whispering which court room we are going to. We were all numbers and even addressed ourselves as a number. And we were threatened repeatedly with fines and prison sentences.

    This motherfucker gets to say whatever the fuck he wants and gets a bunch of verbal warnings and finger wagging.

    This is why we lose trust in various govt systems

    A story about Boomers in Tillamook, OR on reddit

    Thought the folks on lemmy would like this.

    Original: https://www.reddit.com/r/BoomersBeingFools/comments/1by5wkx/boomer_lady_at_the_water_company_asked_if_i_sold/

    Ok… picture it… Tillamook, Oregon. Yes, THAT Tillamook. Tiny town with more cows than people and most people who live there are old and crotchety. When you call the water company in the rural areas around town, a lady just answers, “Hello,” in a cranky voice that sounds like she was doing something way more important when you called her. She hand writes your bill on paper note cards and they don’t accept anything but checks as payment.

    Anyway, a couple weeks ago I call and tell her that I need to disconnect the water or put it in the new person’s name.

    Her: “It’ll be easier to just put it in the new person’s name. Do you know it?”

    Me: [name that sounds like maaaaaaybe it could Asian, but not really]

    Her: [name]? Are they Chinese?

    Me: I don’t know, but they’re moving over from Hawaii. So I kinda doubt it.

    Her: Well, good. Cause you know all them Chinese around here are all a bunch of drug dealers.

    Me: Uhhhhhh.

    Her: Alright, I got it down. You’ll get one more bill. [click]

    I sat there for a minute with my phone in my had, wondering what the fuck I had just heard. I always felt like everyone in that town had a robe and hood in their closet, but they usually kept it pretty low key. In any event, I sure hope that she gets to see the new people and rest assured that they have pretty, white faces.

    Fucking boomers. Especially rural, white boomers.

    Oof. Am I crazy or is this way beyond house inflation?

    The idea that 40 years and this house cost than 10x more?

    I know there's a lot of other factors. I'm just... Sigh.

    [Meta] Could we move the community to another instance to ease the load on Lemmy.world?
  • Is there a way to shut down or loudly announce the move for new posters? Like changing the name of the community?

    When searching for a new community, I hate when I see 3 or 4 versions of the same topic and I just pick one at random. Uncertain if I'm part of a dead one or not.

  • Been practicing fermenting for the past year. This is my third attempt and I've gotten better
  • Distilled water does not have chlorine!

    With kimchi, I used very little water (only the amount the recipe suggests). The veggies I use( Chinese cabbage) contains a lot of water naturally and my batch always overflows once fermentation happens.

    This laptop released in 2016 no longer receive OS updates. Which means I can't update Chrome Browser
  • Asus 202c from 2016. They're EoL, so they don't get chrome OS updates. Which means the Play Store is also outdated.

    Overall, they're pretty nifty. Battery life is still solid. Keyboard and case is pretty durable.

    I actually have a few of these chromebooks! (You can buy them from schools) I've reformatted one with Linux. Another is Chromebook + side loaded for coding. This one is just for browsing and taking notes.

    But just the thought that some old person buying a computer and going, "Lemme pick up these Google Things that are $100" only to end up with these errors makes me sad.
