This post has CoViD-19 in the title but is a question regarding the human body and how it handles common colds and flu strains which are commonly received and dealt with throughout a normal life.
Is there any permanent damage caused, or is it simply temporary or none at all? Thanks!
Edit: I had a feeling common colds and flu strains had long lasting effects, but the fact that I didn't realize it until I was reminded and clarified by you all is a very important distinction that this isn't something we think about often. I hope moving forward after CoViD-19, the dangers of simple common illnesses are brought to attention. Myocarditis is something that I have recently learned about and knowing how fatal it can be is something everyone should be aware about.
So recently I’ve been thinking about how normally I would get sick once or twice every few months. But during this time we’ve been quarantined for covid I literally haven’t gotten sick once (like a normal cold)!! I know this obviously makes sense but it just dawned on me how effective social distancing can be even for a regular cold!
I'm at a loss here, only thing I can think of is sandwiches.. we aren't allowed to use the Microwaves at work which has limited my options. I need something healthy, tasty and filling that I can cook in bulk and is cheap.
I literally have no ideas, please help
I just want to wash my hands without burning them off.
I’m staying at home for the weekend with my boyfriend (we’ve been together 9 months).
My 4 year old niece has been so excited for my visit because I haven’t seen her since May. At 6.30 this morning she came bouncing into my room where I was sleeping with my boyfriend. He is very much a morning person but as soon as she came in he pretended to be asleep. I thought it was a bit odd but chalked it down to a late night. For the next 30 minutes or so, she came in and out of the room, bouncing on the bed, tickling us, just generally being a fun loving four year old. At one stage she climbed on both my boyfriend and I. By this time he was awake, but not engaging with my niece. He was scrolling on his phone and not really hiding the fact he was annoyed she was there. To be honest I wasn’t too pleased she was there either (we had a late night!) but of course I didn’t show her that, I played along though half asleep! So anyways, when she climbed on us her foot ended up next to my boyfriend’s f... keep reading on reddit ➡
A 62-year-old Bothell man was arrested in connection to the 1993 murder of 15-year-old Melissa Lee.
The Snohomish County Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit arrested Alan Edward Dean without incident near his Bothell home around 5 p.m. Tuesday.
Dean was booked into the Snohomish County Jail on one count of first-degree murder and one count of first-degree kidnapping.
Detectives said Dean was identified as a suspect in Melissa’s murder through DNA technology. According to a press release, DNA evidence from the 1993 crime scene was upload into a public genetic genealogy website, which found “promising matches” for multiple of Dean’s relatives.
Genealogists with Parabon NanoLabs, a DNA technology company in Virginia, were able to deduce Dean’s identity from the matches. Detectives acquired Dean’s DNA from a discarded cigarette butt, and the Washington State Patrol’s crime lab matched his DNA to the DNA profile from the crime scene evidence.

Earlier today, a 65 year old man named Gary Robert Young was arrested for kidnapping and raping a woman in Chandler, Arizona in 1991.
The woman was held at gunpoint and raped nearly 30 years ago after a man broke into her apartment, but when a DNA sample was taken from the scene and eventually entered into CODIS, no match was found. However, the DNA did match a sample taken from another crime scene, this one a separate sexual assault that had occurred in 1992.
Young was arrested at his home in Phoenix after the police surreptitiously collected his DNA last month, which proved he was the man behind the sexual assaults - this came after he was identified as a potential perpetrator by genetic genealogy techniques.

Whenever August rolls around and the consistent triple-digit days come I always question the existence of cold weather.
I'm one of those poor schmucks who doesn't have AC and the heat has been seriously getting in the way of being able to cook anything lately, let alone cheap and healthy. We've found a few recipes we like but they're quickly getting old as the heatwave persists. We have completely abandoned using our oven and even the ~10 minutes it takes to cook pasta is pushing it in terms of how much additional heat we can comfortably stand in the house.
Lately we've been eating a lot of sandwiches, bean salads, and cold soba noodles with tofu (mainly vegetarian diet).
Recommendations? We have a microwave, toaster, and electric kettle as far as appliances that don't create a lot of heat but can heat food.
Edit: I was trying to respond to everyone but I've gotten so many responses! Thank you so much, everyone! I'll definitely be coming back to this post for meal inspiration during the summer and I hope it ends up being a good resource for other people too :)
>Vineet Menachery, a coronavirus researcher at the University of Texas Medical Branch, told NPR's Weekend Edition that one of the more likely scenarios is that the spread of COVID-19 will eventually be slowed as a result of herd immunity. He said that he'd be surprised "if we're still wearing masks and 6-feet distancing in two or three years" and that in time, the virus could become no more serious than the common cold.
>I'd be surprised if we're still wearing masks and 6-feet distancing in two or three years. I think the most likely outcome is that we'll eventually get to herd immunity. The best way to get to herd immunity is through a vaccine and some certain populations who have already been exposed or will be exposed.

I had a discussion with a friend today, and we both agree that no matter how hot it is outside, how sweaty you are from working, or how tired you are, a hot shower is the only way to go.
Personally, for the last couple minutes of my shower, I cool myself off with cold water because I don't like being sticky and hot
Brrrrr!!! 🥶 🥶 🥶
Urges? COLD SHOWER.
Feeling down? COLD SHOWER.
Flatline? COLD SHOWER.
Wanna go past 7 days and beyond? COLD SHOWER EVERYDAY.
SCIENTIFICALLY STUDIED TO BOOST DOPAMINE, SEROTONIN, MOOD, FOCUS, WILLPOWER
COLD SHOWERS, TAKE YOURS TODAY!!!!!!!!!
They'd still have the drawbacks of lower body dmg/average and body TTK and (some of them) longer optimal TTKs than HCs, but I bet they'd have more use (especially 150s) if they got a zoom reduction and a slight damage or rof tweaks. I'd definitely use regularly a, say, 17 zoom Polaris Lance! Maps are small Bungie!
EDIT: the zoom reduction should also reduce range so it would prevent what some people fear, a meta of scout players at the back of the map. Around 40-50m base dropoff start without zoom added should be fair compared with pulses
EDIT 2: I'm not saying they should have HC zoom like Cold Denial. Something between 16-19 zoom, AR to pulse, would be fair.
EDIT 3: I talked with a friend (again regarding pvp) and I think some overall interesting changes could be putting lightweight and precision frames at 210rpm (so .86s ttk optimally on both), give precision frames good hipfire and in-air accuracy so the effect is on par with the lightweight effect (while at it, precision HCs sh... keep reading on reddit ➡
Making dinner last night, my fiancé noticed me filling up the spaghetti pot with hot water from the tap. He suggested I use cold water instead as it would boil faster. It seems counterintuitive to me but I've heard this from more than a few people, so I ask you reddit, is it bullshit?
I see a lot of Redditors disliking cold water because it feels uncomfortable on the throat or it gives them brain freeze. But for me, it is very drinkable than warm water or other drinks. Especially since I live in a hot, tropical place. The feeling of drinking cold water is fairly satisfying and makes me want to drink more water even if it sometimes give me brain freeze or weird feelings in my teeth. Warm water just doesn't taste right.
Today I did my first direct approach. I've done some shitty indirect approaches that never went anywhere before though. I'm 19, and I've been fearing the cold approach since I was 15. I FINALLY FUCKING DID IT. I've walked past thousands of girls I wanted to approach and regretted it. My biggest fear was embarrassing myself or something. My primal fear of approaching a girl had killed me for 4+years. I especially was scared of what other people think as they are walking past me, judging me.
Today I finally fucking did it after 2 hrs of walking around at a massive shopping center. I direct approached some chick who was with her friend.
My game was pretty weak. I didn't build attraction through a convo (in fact I barely had a convo in the first place), was quite nervous (usually I'm a confident person, but I couldn't comprehend I actually DIRECTLY approached a girl so I wasn't thinking straight), etc.
So yes, I did get rejected. But now I feel fucking proud. Happiest moment of my life... keep reading on reddit ➡
