    However, if I have a bad day, it become irritated real quick. The scammer is so demanding. They ask what is your email, your credit number, and we are good people who are from Microsoft company. They are really good at boldface lying.

    They're not really good at lying, people are just naïve. The moment you become pushy, they immediately turn aggressive and irritated. Don't let them syskey you and you're good to go.

    For example one scammer wanted me to send an email to royal bank of Scotland. Its email? info@royalbankofscotland.xyz - even though UK has domain .co.uk. Plain stupid, but some will fall for it, because they're uneducated in the field and hence naive.

    @OmnislashXX Caloric deficit actually. I'm trying to trick my body into burning calories by alternating between caloric deficit and enough calories. It works quite okay, I've already lost 500g. But when I need to refill energy, I feel hunger through the entire day.

    Actually the only boundaries are the ones set by either side. If both sides have no boundaries, you go for it. If someone says no, they most probably mean it. Things are simple. You don't have to TRY to love, it comes natural and you don't need someone who TRIES to love you. No. They must feel it natural too.

    So Huawei is embargoed by USA and blacklisted by Google. So does that mean I'll be forced to convert to Samsung in 2 years?
    Poryg
    Poryg
    Well, since I got my mate p10 lite, I've already had three updates. I think that's sufficient, given the fact that I don't have it for even a year. And while benchmarks may not be as good as with samsung phones (although in the latest tests Xiaomi flagship has won), the price/performance ratio is just better.
    Poryg
    Poryg
    Samsung relies on its display (and they have really awesome display technology, it's visible on their TVs), Huawei relies on advanced camera. The only bad thing I would say about Huawei phones is, I don't like that they don't allow you to root your phone. I don't root my phones, since I don't need it. But I'd love the user to have this choice.

    Whether it's Samsung or Apple, the prices are way above the used technology and materials. You just pay the brand for the most part (since whatever the price is people will buy it). Lots of smaller companies sell decent phones for 1/3 or even 1/4 the price.
    I just love random reviews. "PRO: Discover weekly gives you new songs every week using a great algorithm. CON: Discovery algorithm is bad."

    So it depends. This alogrithm becomes better, the more metadata you feed it. Interact with Spotify, press a like when you really like something, pass a song you dislike. It will learn about you.

    last week, I went to watch an episode of Hawaii Five-O, in a website completely unrelated to youtube, and in that episode there was a scene involving a secret door disguised as a wardrobe.
    the same day, hours later, I go to youtube,.... what do I find in my recommendations? "How to build a secret door disguised as a wardrobe".

    I don't have extremely large feet... But buying shoes is quite difficult for me. My feets' sizes are different from one another :(
    The Stranger

    Isn't it normal for your feet to be slightly different sizes? It's meant to be fairly common for different parts of your body to differ in size from one another. I guess it might be a bit of a problem if one foot is vastly larger or smaller than the other foot.
    Poryg
    Poryg
    Well, you're right, it's natural the body is not symmetrical. But the differences should be minor if the body wants to function properly. Few cm of leg difference are enough to make you limp and can be connected to scoliosis.
    Poryg
    Poryg
    Feet shouldn't be too different from each other either as it can affect your balance in balance demanding places if too large of a difference. One shoe number of a difference shouldn't be too much of a problem though, it's true it's more of an inconvenience than anything.
    Lesson learned. If you want to run indoors, make sure there's proper air circulation in the room.

    If you choose a good enough route, you can find places to cool down though. We have parks with plenty of shadow from trees, which ain't half bad. Running near a river is cooler too.

    ^Within 50 years of our deaths we all fade into obscurity. Only difference that celebrities get is that their image gets to be prostituted long after the real person they were has faded and warped to fit various agendas they likely had no part in in life. I certainly don't envy that, myself.

    True. Many of us fade away pretty much instantly, though. Might as well have never lived at all. In the not too distant future, I imagine that celebrities will carry on singing and acting long after their deaths - their faces worn by digital actors.

    Apparently, they can't have sex during this time, either. Fasting of all things. Too much fasting can be dangerous, but it in moderation can help discipline the mind. It has, and still is, used a lot in Christianity; probably not too many practitioners in the West anymore, though.

    And the made up stuff and lies to be interesting was like a nail in the coffin. He has grown up from that and although he is still difficult to talk to, I can't say I hold anything against him now.

    Sharm
    Sharm
    Yes, it really does! So, to answer seriously, I always thought that there must be some safety protocols in place that she can't get past, so she has to use other methods for killing. And, to be fair, she uses lots of other ways to kill people. There's deadly gunk, perilous falls, guns, lasers, putting people in ovens, and more. Neurotoxin seems to have been her more successful.

    I don't really like too much randomness either. I'd just love a greater challenge than developing one key that drags me through the entire game. And that can be achieved for example by skills that are more complex than mere damage for mana cost.

Discovering math. functions for damage formulas was one of the greatest things for me.
It's very useful for balancing skills to work in a variety of possible circumstances.
For example if you have a skill that is supposed to work for both mages and warriors:
Code:
Math.max(a.atk * 2 - b.def, a.mat * 2 - b.mdf)
SpaceX: First-ever successful (manned) commercial spaceflight!! In these terrible and self-sabotaging times for the world, that's a ray of excitement and hope I needed badly.

The video of a psycho chasing people on the streets with a sword before getting subdued is wild. Apparent screenshots of his Twitter feed (EDIT: confirmed by Dallas police) before it went private reveal a dangerous delusional mindset. I heard there was a bow person too.
