Background: We eloped in Vegas. Yeah, yeah, that should tell you everything. We dated for 2 years prior to getting married. And nope, we don't have kids.
To start off, I feel like I lied to my wife for what I wanted in life. In turn, I basically lied to myself too. Before marriage, I thought marriage was what I wanted. I thought I wanted a nice house in the suburbs with a green lawn and white picket fences. I naively thought marriage would tame me and would help me "mature", going to my 40hr/wk job, taking an annual 3 week vacation for the next 30 years until we retire.
At least that's what she wants. Being extremely attracted to and in love with her, I thought I wanted that life too. But after a grueling 9 months of marriage, I have a pent up frustration that I'm "trapped", preventing me from living a life I would prefer to live.
I asked myself what my ideal day would look like, and what actually makes me happy. For example, I like driving fast, she nags me to drive slower. I l... keep reading on reddit ➡
I guess in other words I'm also asking if a materials coefficient of friction changes with temperature.
EDIT: quite a few people are pointing out all sorts of factors affecting tyre performance. From a physics perspective, friction is simply the force multiplied by the coefficient (which is determined by the material properties of the two objects in contact with one another). The reason an increase in surface area increases grip in tyres is due to rubber being soft enough to allow the road to 'dig in' to it.
My question is whether a temperature change specifically changes the material properties and alters the coefficient of friction or if it is the softening allowing the road to dig into the tyre better.
Not interested in specialty products, no matter how amazing they are. I want cheap and commonly available.
I've never used either and so looking for feedback from those who have. Back in my Scouting days, it was Gold Bond powder (brrrr!) - or even corn starch - so that's where I'm coming from. I'll pack some maximum-strength diaper rash ointment (aka Desitin aka 40% zinc oxide cream) to use at night in case all else fails, but aiming for prevention here.
Moreover, your bones, skin, muscles and tendons remain at regular human durability. Furthermore, you develop an irregular heartbeat from constantly switching between states of equilibrium to that of a hyper-activated parasympathetic nervous system. Concomitantly you develop a number of cardiac-related health issues, such as anemia and hypoxia. In complimentary fashion this gives you erectile dysfunction. Ultimately, your already non-existent sex life is squandered and you fall into a hopeless spiral of despair. Finalmente, your pitiful state is judged as unfit for custody and Karen takes the kids. You are Barry Ailment, the saddest man alive.
TLDR how to read this google sheet explained at the end
[quick addition of working definitions of the two types of friction in gaming per request for people who haven't seen this type of testing before
Static Friction in gaming- the force required to get an object moving from complete standstill - for aim think of low static friction as making a micro-adjustments without the mouse "sticking" to the pad
Kinetic Friction in gaming - the force required to keep an object moving once its already started - for aim think of consistently tracking an object using a beam weapon, for example - people range in what they prefer here but I personally likely higher amount of this for stopping power without overshooting the target
So my general preference is low static friction (almost everybody's preference) and... keep reading on reddit ➡
So yesterday i did a presentation on the atmosphere in science class. The day before, I was researching for the presentation and i came across a sentence in the textbook that says meteors burn in the atmosphere due to friction with the air. I could've sworn I read somewhere that meteors burning due to friction with the air is a common myth.
Sure enough I found a sentence in Randall Munroe's What-If(one of my favorite books) that said meteors burn because the air getting compressed in front of them heats them up, not because of friction, which is what is commonly believed. Upon doing some googling I also found more or less the same idea on wikipedia and space.com.
We were gonna get tested on this stuff, so at the end of my presentation i asked the teacher about it, whether meteors burn due to friction or compression- personally i was sure it was compression, and i showed everyone the sources from what-if, space.com and wikipedia.

Discipline is an emotional regulation problem (you can find many studies that conclude this).
Humans are built to pursue the greatest rewards for the least amount of effort. It’s a big reason why drugs are so addictive: big reward, no effort required. It’s the same thing for all other types of addictions such as the internet (social media, videos, etc.), TV, porn, and others, your brain has been trained to release a lot of dopamine when you encounter these addictive things because although the rewards are very minimal, the effort to get there is extremely low. It takes literally no effort to watch a YouTube video.
Your brain intuitively calculates reward/effort ratios for every choice you can make, and then guides you towards the greatest one. I’m writing this post even though it takes a lot more effort because the reward (recognition) is far greater than watching a YouTube video (I don’t know the exact numbers, but my brain intuitively knows, and so does yours). That’s dopamine.

Is my hairy body suggesting something to me?
Follow up to my recent post on buddy mechanics opposing each other, another aspect of the game producing friction is the social competitive nature of players who battle and trade, and of the reward encounters in the game themselves.
The ideal PvP IVs are low attack, high defense and stamina for practically any Pokemon that can power up beyond the CP caps. We know that, great.
The problem is, many of the ways to encounter a Pokemon result in having a floor of 10 in their IVs. So they'll have high attack, defense, and stamina. This applies to hatches like Riolu, and raid bosses like Alolan Raichu, and even GBL encounter rewards like Scraggy. (A Pokemon like Shieldon is just fine as you want close to 100% IVs anywhere given where it caps out.) The way to make them generally better for PvP is to trade them with someone.
Well, the more you trade with people, the more friendship points you get. The mor... keep reading on reddit ➡
Whatever, fuck off.
The Buddy mechanic is a decent one in spirit. But execution has a single devastating flaw. This is part of a recurring topic in a series of analyses I have planned: gameplay contradiction.
Buddying is almost a fun mechanic. It's convoluted in the feeding mechanism, the difficult to attain excited state, a daily heart allowance for visiting a new stop, but otherwise pretty straightforward. Your buddy gets to join you on the map, and if you do enough stuff for long enough, they'll get a 1 level increase while set as your buddy. The game does limit how much buddy fun you can have (previously it didn't) by letting you change buddies only 20 times per day.
Problems arise in that though:
OK. Bit odd but I've got something I noticed this morning on my labia or I think maybe vulva, idk which part it is honestly but I think it's the labia. I'm on my period and usually on my period everything tends to be a bit dry down there. But this time I'm using my smaller pads(had to borrow pads from sister since I can't afford to buy them rn) and since I bled heavily I put toilet paper up near the vagina there also to stop most of the bleeding. But I noticed it was kinda sore down there when I changed the toilet paper and pad yesterday. I thought nothing of it since it tends to be dry down there. Well today I went to scratch and itch and Jesus christ the jolt of pain made me jump. It was awful, I was panicking a little because I didn't know what it was. So I pulled everything down to take a peek. Honestly I have no idea how to explain what it is. It looks like a small circular bit of the top layer of my skin in that part is just gone. And exposed is a very red tender looking skin. To... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi! So I would say that I have an average sized labia minora. One part of it hangs outside of the majora and rubs on underwear, etc.
It seriously is very uncomfortable and on my mind a lot. I usually try to wear just underwear and skirts. When I wear leggings/shorts/pants it’s even more annoying and slightly painful.
I also don’t know if there would be a reason but I feel like I have noticed it more in the past few months, as opposed to every couple days. Idk if there is some inflammation causing my minora to be larger or hang lower but it’s rubbing and awful.
My question is do any of you experience this as well and how do you deal with it?
Sometimes I fantasize getting a labiaplasty just so I don’t have to deal with this feeling (I am very against plastic surgery for myself so it’s an odd feeling for me).
A local bee keeper gave me about a half lb of wax that came from his hive. He says it’s been filtered three separate times through 5 layers of cheese cloth each time. Not sure if that makes a difference.
I’m going to be turning a set of honey dippers for him as a thank you (he also gave my wife a pint of fresh wildflower honey from the same hive) Thinking that using the wax would be a nice touch if it would work.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
TLDR: I feel that too much walking, uninteresting tasks & interaction issues are hurting the great things the game has to offer: maps, guns, gameplay, bosses, intros, cut scenes... I'm curious what you think about that.
I've bought Borderlands 3 in Epic Store recently and been playing regularly. I deeply enjoy the core gameplay, weapons & tone of the game. A few things have been grinding my gears though. I'm curious what do you guys think of these.
"Every minute I spend not pulverizing my enemies is wasted." Amara.
I cannot help but feel that I spend too much time walking without anything relevant to do. I'm going from point A to point B and it's just not interesting. There's nothing happening in between. I often have to go from point A to point B just to talk to someone who I seem to be able to contact via visio-call anyway. So what was the point?

Thought you lot would appreciate me linking this, James from K&S posted a great video and guide in his blog on how to friction fit your Saya to your knives.
I did his method with an alternative materiel, I used leather off an old belt for the insert to stop scratches, works a charm!

Can anyone share a good picture of a keritinized penis? Not sure if I understand what it is.
Even though I am circumcised without a restored foreskin, I have taken care over the last few years to avoid my glans making contact with my pants while walking around (due to extra sensitivity from steroid cream use). I mainly accomplish this my wearing lose pants/shorts with no underwear, and usually having a hand in my pocket to push the pants forward to create extra space around the penis, to avoid any contact/friction. Therefore my glans has been smooth/shiny without any white hard bumps. Glans used to be slightly harder/less smooth to the touch before I started doing this a couple years ago.
Is the keratinization due only to friction of glans with pants? Or can it also be due to lack of any protective secretions/lubricants that an intact foreskin would provide to the glans? And do these secretions also work with a restored foreskin?
I recently bought a refurbished Miyata 615. Not sure what year it’s from but a shop around here rebuilt it and it rides pretty well. I didn’t buy it because I like vintage bikes, but because with Covid, it’s been very difficult to find a road bike at my price point.
My question is about the friction shifters. I talked to the guy selling it and read a few articles but I just can’t seem to find the “sweet spot.” I can find spots on the shifter where it’s a smooth ride, but in the highest gear, I can’t find a way to adjust it so that there isn’t a grinding on the chain. Wanted to see if you guys had any tips on that or if it’s something I should go back to the shop with. I’m never used the friction shifters before so I’m on a bit of a learning curve.

We've seen it all on this subreddit the last 4 years. "Why doesn't Niantic just ..."? There's different answers to each question, from technological incompetence to managerial incompetence to greed. But it is really weird that Niantic never prioritizes the happiness of players in any development they work on.
I've been basing my last few mousrpad purchases based on the mousepad mastersheet and trying to pick ones with good stopping power and low dynamic friction/ jerk.
But something I've been wandering is how can a pad have different values for dynamic and stopping? And are the values on the sheet arbitrary or measured in Newton's/ is the value of the coefficient of friction? (In which case there should be no difference between stopping and dynamic friction?)
This probably isn't the right place to post this but it does relate to mousepads. I started using an equate from xraypad and found there was a lot of friction on my arm making my movement very jittery because of this. It was made even worse if my arm was sweating. I'm currently using a Sportstrail sleeve but there is still noticable fiction because of it. What material would give me this "frictionless" feel I'm looking for.
Dimensions of the Kronen’s Wall:
Length: 15 Miles (Approximately 1/6 of Hadrian’s Wall)
Height: 3 meters (Approximately 1/2 of Hadrian’s Wall)
Width: 1.5 meters (Approximately 1/2 of Hadrian’s Wall)
[M] Thus, though Kronen’s Wall is being built 2 millennia before Hadrian’s was in real life, it is only a mere 4.17% (1/24) of its size. If horses are approved, they will be used to make this building project much easier.
Another real-world example is the Danevirke, a system of fortifications that is longer (18 miles vs 15 miles in length) and taller (3 meters vs 3.5 - 6 meters) than mine, but was built in the exact same region. The Danish kingdom that built the Danevirke occupied the exact same lands that I do at its height, so it w... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hey, all I'm a 27 yr old male who has been suffering with PE all my life. After leaving a long relationship and getting back in the game, I've begun to understand it a little better. My main issue lies within not so much the physical stimulation, but more so just the mental stimulation, if that makes sense..
I've seen a few girls over the past couple of months and have ejaculated simply from them grinding on me for less than a minute. Once was even from an intense make out session. This is always incredibly embarassing as I tend to hide it and stop the foreplay.

What are some strategies to fix this? Should I just watch porn without masterbating? Edging while watching porn is incredibly frustrating because I feel the urge to ejaculate after a few strokes and then I have to wait a while befo... keep reading on reddit ➡
Does anyone know why in some games of Rivals (but not all) there’s heavy friction when trying to control your players? It’s like turning a ferry around. I literally feel the resistance in my controller, and I have to almost drag the left-stick and it feels heavy. Other games then are much smoother and your players react almost instantly to the slightest flick of the left-stick. Is it just because of bad gameplay/ bad servers/bad connection or is it my opponent outsmarting me by choosing players more quickly etc? Sorry if this is already common knowledge but I post it here because I often find really useful advice in this sub.
I make a lot of mousepad reviews on YouTube (boardzy) and I don't know how to use the terms dynamic and static friction. I want to start using them in my videos and I figured this would be the best place to ask
I want to drag click, but my moue has a really smooth surface and there's almost no friction to drag, is there anyway I can increase the friction of my mouse?
Or do they have the same coefficient of friction? Google doesn't want to give me any answers.
