Basic handyman and repair skills should be taught in high school.

Just basic stuff like sewing, how to properly and safely install shelves and furniture, fixing basic plumbing issues, how to safely use power tools and regular tools, and most of all, how to troubleshoot problems. It's so often that people I know have an object or item break and instead of trying to determine themselves what broke it and how they could go about fixing it up, they just see the item as worthless and will just buy a new one despite a fix being criminally simple.

We should be taught to use our own intuition and plan out repairing things. It genuinely makes me feel confident and proud whenever I can fix something up, even if it's a simple task. We should also be taught when it's time to call in a professional.

I know some of the things I've described were most likely in home ed classes way back, but nowadays at least at my high school in Canada, it's been split into food and nutrition and healthcare. There's also obviously much more that should be taught, I only gave a few examples.

I'm only able to be confident and fully employ my social skills when interacting with people I automatically percieve "inferior to me". Anybody else?

And this "inferiority" can mean a lot of different things. With women (I am female) it's mostly if I think I am superior in looks or popularity. With men, it's if I don't find him attractive/don't have any desire to impress. With a lot of people, it's about age and my perception of their accomplishments in life. When I think a person is superior to me on any of these qualities or some sum of them, I become a mere shadow of my confident self. I understand that this sounds incredibly shallow and I do not want to by any means imply that I think I am actually a superior person, worth more than other people, but this is still a very automatic, uncontrollable reaction I have, and it took me years to realize that I was even doing this! I guess it comes from a place of eventually not caring what 'inferior' people will think of me, and vice versa for the 'superior'. Anyone have similar experiences or advice?

Sysadmins with ADHD: how do you get yourself to learn/study technical skills which you aren't passionate about/interested in?

Edit: I didn't think there were other people who had the same situation as me. Thank you to everyone who responded. I always feel like everyone here is so good at scripting, coding, etc. that I'm basically going to be forced out of a job if I'm not the god of scripting and ARM templates. Thank you all so much, everyone who took the time to contribute. I hope I can put some of these suggestions into practice and that maybe someone else might find use from them too.

Edit 2: shit, I thought I peaked with that post about the crappy design on an ergonomic poster, thank you for the gold and platinum, kind strangers!

I have had ADHD all my life and I'm fortunate that I've been able to be successful in IT. I didn't really have many accommodations other than extra time on tests in school and my grades weren't awful.

I'm trying to skill up in Powershell and ARM templates. I'm probably a 3 out of 10 in PS, maybe a 4 out of 10 in ARM on a good day. The problem is that I just can't stay focused on the training videos or books, nor can I stay focused if I'm going along in an exercise. I'm not really good at code and never have been, so it's really easy to get frustrated and distracted, even if I put myself into as distraction-free an environment as I can.

On the flip side, if I'm interested in something, I can stick with it. Any of my certs were obtained through me going through prep books, training videos, labs, etc. I can troubleshoot my way through a lot of things in Azure and Windows, and I'm definitely more into doing that during the workday more than writing scripts or templates.

ADHD or similar LD sysadmins - do you have any suggestions? Were you able to skill up in an area you needed to get better at despite you disliking it? Or were you able to find a way to build a career that focused more on your strengths despite your weaknesses being big parts of the job?

Effects that prevent movement skills is not a good direction to take the game.

I was doing a 10 boss invitation and I lost all 6 portals to a combination of the Grave Trough boss slowing and preventing movement skills, and then another boss slamming or using a large telegraphed attack that I was incapable of avoiding.

The purpose of these large telegraphed attacks is to get the player to move and dodge, having a mechanic that prevents moving and dodging is frustrating at best and certain-death at worst.

I can get behind a slowing mechanic that isn't avoided by Temp Chains immunity, but I think that preventing movement skills is a little too much in the context of multi-boss fights.

Cooking really is a life improving skill

Since the beginning of the pandemic, I've practised cooking, a lot. I've always loved cooking, but last year I really wanted to learn so I started paying attention to every flavor and ingredient I came across and started making more advanced dishes etc.

During this time, I've gotten a lot better. But I'm a 19yo student and I moved to my first apartment in December. I haven't eaten out even once since then since I've wanted to cook for myself so I keep improving. But I'm spending waaayy too much money overall so I have to start cutting down the grocery costs.

So today, I made it my challenge to find the cheapest pack of meat I could find and I wanted to buy as few ingredients as possible. So I bought some really cheap beef-pork ground meat and I had seasonings, cream, parmesan and tagliatelle. I thought I would make some pasta bolognese or something, but that would take crushed tomatoes and I didn't want to spend the extra 85 cents lol My expectations were low.

So I browned the meat, and used salt, black pepper, chili flakes, some random grilling seasoning and soy and fish sauce as seasoning. It smelled really strong, but I knew it would smooth out after adding the cream. After adding the cream and tasting, I added a little more pepper and grilling seasoning. And then it was time for the cheese, I used a lot lmao And then I just added in the al dente tagliatelle. Really cheap and easy, but I loved it so much that I wanted to go for seconds (but I didn't because that would kinda defeat the purpose of this challenge) haha

TLDR; I made something really tasty with very little money and it's all thanks to the practise since the pandemic :) And yes, I suck at writing short posts haha

Dark Souls made me realise how much I hate skill trees

I decided to stop just re-playing DS and try another similar and well-recommended game, so I picked up Jedi Fallen Order. Don't get me wrong, it's a good game, but its skill tree can fuck right off.

Dark Souls did skill trees perfectly: they're just in your mind and your fingers. Your character can do all the shit straight away, and it's you who needs to learn. Skill trees are forced, unnatural and lazy (lazier), and Dark Souls is proof that they're also unnecessary.

Increasing health and stamina along with leveling up is fair play, but locking attacks away is pointless. It's not even as if (in Jedi, at least) the unlockable attacks are powerful: they're still flawed and leave you vulnerable, making them balanced enough to not even make things easier.

Old me wouldn't have cared, so thanks, Dark Souls, you've ruined basically every game with a skill tree now.

If a player wants to rename a spell or skill, I have some advice for you

Let them.

The point of the game is to have fun, and as long as they come up to me beforehand, and remain consistent, I let them.

I had a player want to play a food-themed sorcerer. The effects of the spells remained the same, just the names and my description of the aftermath changed:

Fireball became Mama's Spicy Meatball, Touch of Fatigue became Touch of Low Blood Sugar, Summon Monster became Summon Ingredient and led to the player summoning anything they might cook (never did, but summoning a chicken swarm instead of a rat swarm became a go-to of his)

Consistency was key, and I waved food/water rules for the remainder of the game (but I only ever use those for survival-themed games anyway).

EDIT: Holy banana bread, Batman! My first Reddit award! Thank you!

EDIT 2: Jiminy Jillikers! Thank you for the gold!

A policeman was interrogating 3 guys who were training to become detectives. To test their skills in recognizing a suspect, he shows the first guys a picture for 5 seconds and then hides it. "This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?"

The first guy answers, "That's easy, we'll catch him fast because he only has one eye!"

The policeman says, "Well...uh...that's because the picture I showed is his side profile."

Slightly flustered by this ridiculous response, he flashes the picture for 5 seconds at the second guy and asks him, "This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?"

The second guy smiles, flips his hair and says, "Ha! He'd be too easy to catch because he only has one ear!"

The policeman angrily responds, "What's the matter with you two?!!? Of course only one eye and one ear are showing because it's a picture of his side profile! Is that the best answer you can come up with?"

Extremely frustrated at this point, he shows the picture to the third guy and in a very testy voice asks, "This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?

He quickly adds, "Think hard before giving me a stupid answer."

The third guy looks at the picture intently for a moment and says, "The suspect wears contact lenses."

The policeman is surprised and speechless because he really doesn't know himself if the suspect wears contacts or not.

"Well, that's an interesting answer. Wait here for a few minutes while I check his file and I'll get back to you on that."

He leaves the room and goes to his office, checks the suspect's file on his computer and comes back with a beaming smile on his face.

"Wow! I can't believe it. It's TRUE! The suspect does, in fact, wear contact lenses. Good work! How were you able to make such an astute observation?"

"That's easy..." the third guy replied. "He can't wear regular glasses because he only has one eye and one ear."
