And call to make an appointment for that thing you’ve been putting off. You know, that thing you know is a problem and won’t resolve itself, but isn’t an emergency either. Dentist, doctor, therapist, mechanic, lawyer, bank, whoever it is you need to see call them tomorrow.
I recently participated in a surgery where a person had to have a large amount of tissue removed due to a spreading cancer. They knew there was a problem and simply didn’t deal with it until we had to take half his face off. Whatever it is, make an appointment to deal with it.
ETA: Gold? That’s so sweet!
Hi. It’s currently 3 am and atm I am sitting in the back of my moms car because the monoxide alarm went off a whole THREE TIMES before she got my family out. I was basically begging her to get us out and she scolded me because apparently her intelligence was insulted because I told her we shouldn’t be fucking ignoring it. What does she do? Scold me and tell me to go back to bed. 15 minutes later the alarm goes off again. Of course it fucking does. By the time I’m getting dressed and telling my brother to get out of the house, she finally decides to tell us to leave. As if we weren’t gonna fucking do that. Keep in mind that I(14 years old) had to get my brother ready to leave because she thought opening the windows would keep us safe. She’s been neglectful before but this is a new fucking low. I’m already nauseous and in pain and when I tell her this, she gets angry again at me because apparently I sounded too aggressive.
Sorry for venting about it here. I’m just sick of her acting li... keep reading on reddit ➡
The Trump administration has endangered Americans by failing to adequately prepare for and mitigate coronavirus spread. This failure has flowed directly from Trump's desire to conceal the risk and extent of the disease to protect his own reputation.
The media is glossing over Trump's culpability in the context of the coronavirus response. This failure of accountability is allowing the administration to continue on its disastrous and ineffective course, further endangering the public.
I'm starting a project to highlight the cost that Trump's ego will bring to bear in the context of coronavirus. If you're interested in participating in this grassroots social media campaign, join us at /r/TrumpCoronaVirus. All help is very welcome.
edit: Apparently /u/Hildedank says it's 95. Anyone confirm? I'm not surprised I was off by one because some bozo initiated a fight with me out of nowhere while I was in the mid 80s.

Sounds weird. I know. But let me explain. In an episode in season 5 (I forgot which), we see spongebob's alarm go off, and his bed gets blasted to the other side of the room. As I was watching this, I was thinking, "could that actually happen?", so that's what we're going to find out. A study in July of 2013 shows that a toothpick can be levitated via sounds with 160 decibels, and an average toothpick weighs 100 mg. For sake of simplicity, let's say that spongebob's bed weighs 100 lbs even. 100 lbs into mg is about 39,510 mg. Now we multiply 39,510 by 160 to get 6,321,662 decibels to move spongbob's bed (assuming if he's not in it.) A typical jet engine is around 140 decibels. So it's safe to say that this thing is loud. How loud? Well, a human eardrum typically ruptures at around 150 decibels. Meaning that your eardrums would rupture 42,144 times over. But that's not all. A study in October, 2015, shows that it would take approximately 1,100 decibels to create a black hole larger than... keep reading on reddit ➡
And then knowing that your pension will be so crippling shite that you'd be better off visiting Dignitas in Switzerland...
I, like a lot of people drive my car to work every day. On my drive I listen to the radio. It angers me to no end when an ad on the radio uses a sudden, loud, horn/alarm/siren to get your attention. It is distracting, startling, and unsafe overall. I can be just chilling at a red light and the sudden loud noise that’s several times the volume of anything else will startle the heck out of me. I’m sure it could (if it hasn’t already) cause an accident by startling a driver and causing them to jerk the wheel.
Sounds shouldn’t cause people to jerk, but they do. Having something like that just to get someone’s attention is in poor taste and unsafe. Yes people shouldn’t jerk the wheel because of a loud sound, but you know it happens.
One night in my old apartment building, the fire alarms went off. We get a lot of false alarms, but I figured better safe than sorry. As I’m walking towards the metal double doors that are shutting off the hallway, I hear crying on the other side of the doors.
I decided to check it out just in case, and I found a 7-8 year old propping open her apartment door with her foot, crying and surrounded by three toddlers all under the age of five.
I ask her what’s wrong, and she tells me that the alarms went off, but the cats are still inside, but she has to take them (the toddlers) somewhere safe, and she doesn’t know what to do.
“Where are your parents?”
“They’re in the hot tub downstairs.”
Great. So these adults have left a second grader in charge of three preschoolers.
I tell her it’s a false alarm and I’m pretty sure there’s no fire, but we could go find her parents if it would make her feel better. She’s still worried about the cats, but I reassure her that I’m pretty sure there’... keep reading on reddit ➡
Just say, "Hey Google, wake me up by playing (song name) at (time)"
I just found out about this a moment ago.
You can bet that they went short, but why? It's already been reported that over 200 CEOs have stepped down since the start of the outbreak. Do these guys know something we don't?
I THINK YOU JUST WHISPERED TO ME, FROM NOW ON WHEN YOU WHISPER I’LL WHISPER BACK. YOU CAN ALWAYS SAY TURN OFF WHISPER MODE
(whispers) no alarms set
Damn thing nearly woke up the whole house
My alarms are always consistently set at:
My alarm goes off the first time, waking me up as normal. I turn it off.
10 minutes later it does the same thing, this is normal for me because I need time to wake up in the morning, so I turn it off again.
By the third or fourth time my alarm goes off, and yes I was completely awake, I think fuck I really gotta get up soon so I decide to actually look at the time thinking it’s around 5:30, and the clock on my phone says exactly 5:00 AM and my boyfriend who usually gets up at 5:30 was still next to me sleeping.
I just found it odd, because I SWEAR I turned my alarms off multiple times and the clock was still at 5:00 AM? And my alarms are NEVER set earlier than 5 AM because I’m not crazy lmao. And I really don’t think I dreamt it, because I physically turned my phone off multiple times and I never dream of that kind of stuff.
Every morning I wake up 3-5 minutes before my alarm goes off. I make it a habit to go to bed on time and waking up before my alarm shows me I've gotten enough sleep. It also allows me to avoid the annoying sound of my alarm. In my book that's a win win situation.
