TIL scientists "hacked" the genetic code of brewer's yeast to produce cannabis compounds. They inserted genes from cannabis plants into the yeast's genetic code which allowed it to produce CBD and THC. Their end goal is to allow large scale cannabinoid production without cultivation. nature.com/articles/d4158…

Male doctor invalidated my pain, said childbirth is only a 5-6 on the pain scale

I had a procedure done a few weeks ago. I came in for a check up today, and filled out a survey about how painful I would rate the procedure among other questions. The form specifically said β€œ1 being hardly any pain, 10 being the worst pain you’ve ever felt.”

The doctor must have read my survey before coming in. He immediately was on the defense, and I answered the question on the form, but wasn’t going to talk to him about the pain at all. I expected pain. I wasn’t mad about it. I just had normal post op questions. He started off β€œan 8, huh? Well that can’t be right because giving birth without an epidural is a 5 or 6. Having your arm cut off would be a 7. So your procedure was probably a 2 or 3.”

I responded that the question was based on the worst pain I’d ever felt. This was some of the worst pain I’d ever felt. I also have never had my arm cut off or given birth, so I wouldn’t know about that. He said β€œwell aren’t you privileged? Anyway, you can’t blame me for the pain. If it was that bad you should have asked for some more local anesthesia. You can’t put that on me.” I was never going to. I just responded β€œI knew it would be a painful procedure and it was, and that fine.” He had to have the last word and said β€œyeah, but that was no 8.”

This sort of thing pisses me off. Why does he feel the need to explain to me my own pain, when I never said anything about it? Obviously I will avoid him in the future if I can (I live in a small area and he was my only option). This isn’t even my first experience like this with a male doc (obviously, not all male docs). Like why is their bedside manner so, so horrible?

Edit to add: if anyone is really curious, here is a snippet of the recording I took. It goes on for a half hour, so I edited it down. And I promise I do a better job of defending myself later on when he brings it up AGAIN, I was just caught off guard at the beginning. In the recording here he says a subway ripping off your arm is an 8. Later in the appointment he says having your arm cleanly cut off would be a 7. πŸ€·πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Edit to add: Thank you for those who posted REAL (or more logical) pain scales. I stand by my 8. I am 100% investigating how to report him, and many of you brought up he probably has been sued before. I will look into this! Can anyone give advice on how to see if he’s been sued before and how to report?

edit 3: link is safe.. google transparency report:

edit 4: please, fellow apes, don’t get me wrong, this is NOT a political post or a post about the person jeff bezos. it should just show, that 10 000 000 dollar is not that big as you might think and how the dimensions and relations of this high numbers are.. bc it is very difficult for apes and humans to imagine that big numbers.. πŸ’Ž πŸ™Œ of course the balance is not existing between the (uber) rich and the majority of the human beings.. but we will have the chance to change this, after the moass, when the rocket reached the moon. πŸš€ πŸŒ™


obligatory reminder:

i hodl for not less than 10 000 000 dollar a share and only sell AFTER the peak, no matter how long this will take..

Do you feel that the some companies are using ongoing situation as an excuse to scale down their customer service?

In last 2-3 months on account of moving house, I have had to call/chat to British Gas, Thames Water, Virgin Media, EON etc and each one of them made it absolutely impossible to get hold of a customer representative without jumping through the hoops for hours at a time. I know wait times were there before as well but it has now reached completely mockery levels.

Most have made it difficult to find their support numbers from their help and support pages by removing the links to it completely. Thankfully google still has indexed those pages from earlier time so you can directly google it. Utility companies in particular have no excuse as it's not as if their business has been severely affected due to this crisis. People continue to use Gas and electricity at home, probably even more so than before.

I actually prefer doing things on Chat/Email where possible, but most companies that offer these basically just put in a chat bot that is almost nearly useless, after wasting your time asks you to call. All in all, this feels like they are using the ongoing situation as an excuse to basically cut down costs at the expense of their customers.

It's funny how we give crap towards hunters who hunt free range animals(for food) yet we continue to consume large scale farmed animals that has never known any freedom.

I do admire the concept of hunting for food, but I'm against trophy hunting just because the animal had died for no reason. Hunting for food is more humane than buying from the grocery store. You have to understand that the animals in the wild will die being hunted by other animals or by injury/illness but at least they had a good natural life before that rather than being born in a literal animal prison.

I'm not opposed to farm produced animal products as I don't really have the capability to hunt as the large percentage of the human population. But we should really give hunters(who hunt for food) a break and stop acting like were any better because we don't hunt.

The scales just tipped against lockdownism

These last 13 months I've been as terrified as I've ever been - terrified that we had lost everything vibrant and good in our society, and terrified that we would lose at least a year but probably more. When the lockdownists started to redescribe their preferences as facts towards the end of the summer of 2020 with the spate of "we're never going back to the old normal" articles, I thought they might be right. Once shell shocked we wont return, not after the inevitable second wave that was always going to come with a respiratory virus that didn't really hit most places until spring, I feared.

I don't think so anymore.

I think we've literally just reached a tipping point as of this week that was building for some time.

I was initially very worried after the lockdownists seemed determined to insist that the vaccines change nothing narrative followed up by the variant/scariant narrative seemed [designed](https://twitter.com/devisridhar/stat

Numbers are not the problem when talking about video games. The problem arises when you try to objectively rate the game by a number scale instead of rating your personal enjoyment of the experience with clearly defined number meanings and reasons behind the verdict.

I know that it's an unpopular opinion, but I want to give it a try. So don't send a dragon god on me just yet.

  • Having a well-defined rating scale and rating your "experience" is done in psychology experiments for more than a hundred years now. So we can't say that it has no value or that it's pointless when the entire field of science is doing it for various experiments and research.

To clarify. Here is an example of a basic scale. Of course, it can be changed around, based on the game. But the general enjoyment verdict remains the same. 1 - you had a bad experience. 5 - you had a fantastic experience.

  1. I did not enjoy the game.

  2. The game was okay, but really nothing special. It has flows but playable.

  3. I enjoyed the game. Might even replay it some time. It didn't have many flaws but it wasn't terrible either.

  4. I had a really good time. Really great game. Not perfect but truly good.

  5. One of the best games I have ever played. I had a superb experience. This game might be my game of the year.

You are not rating the game objectively. You are just rating your experience. Now you can add reasons why you had such experience and other people can gain value out of your review or scale.

Here is a mini-review of mine that would fit this number scale method.

Dishonored

  • I loved the game. You have the freedom to approach each level the way you want. You can either go stealth or eliminate all of the enemies or civilians. The story and the characters you encounter are very captivating. The story has plot twists and is presented to you from the first-person view. This means that you are always there, as the main character, experiencing everything - very immersive. The steampunk world is presented in an open way for you to explore and find hidden powers or secrets which I found very fun to find. I had a blast playing it, my game of the year possibly. 5/5

With that score, I rated the experience that I had, I am not rating the game objectively. I gave the reasons what made me feel that way. Maybe another person enjoys more linear games or not first-person games and it will mean that they will enjoy the game way less and rate it way less good and that's fine.

Does that score harm the review? I don't think so. It just summarises my enjoyment of the game. I like having scores as long as they ate the experience itself that the person had.
