My short bio: Hi everyone, my name is Alex. On Sunday night, there was a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest in Cincinnati, and 307 of us, myself included, were taken into custody. Many of us were left without food, water, shelter, and blankets for many hours. Some were even left outside over night. Some videos from the station have even gone viral.
I'm here to answer any questions anyone might have about that night in the Hamilton County JC, the protests themselves, or anything of the like!
My Proof: My court document (Can provide more proof if needed)
EDIT: I'm at work at the current moment and will answer questions later tonight when I can. Ask away!
EDIT 2: I'm back, babes.
EDIT 3: Alright, everyone. I think that should do it. I've been answering questions and responding to messages for about five hours straight and it's taken a lot out of me, so I've turned off my notifications to this post. Keep fighting the good fight, and I encourag... keep reading on reddit ➡
Trying to settle a debate.
ETA - before as in before you get undressed and ready to hop in.
ETA again: Thanks for all of the responses, although you have made me conclusively lose the debate. To clarify, I get undressed, step in the shower, turn the tap on for a few seconds, position the shower head away from me, switch from tap to shower head, stand at the opposite side of the shower to dodge the water for a few more seconds while it warms up, and then proceed with my shower. I truly thought this was what most people did. Eye-opening.
So this weekend I just moved into my girlfriends flat so that we can spend the rest of lockdown together.
We celebrated by going to this beautiful oasis, lake type thing. The water is serene and clear. It’s deceptive. We decided to go for a swim and there’s this small island in the center of it, so we decided to go for it.
The water wasn’t too deep but it got to a point where I couldn’t touch the floor. I’m quite a confident swimmer but haven’t been swimming for ages and ages. That was my mistake.
Everything was fine until my girlfriend was in front of me and the gap was ever increasing. I realised I couldn’t touch the floor and felt the seaweed wrapping around my feet. At this point I panicked. I’ve never really had a panic attack before, but this was certainly it, in the middle of an oasis, where I couldn’t touch the floor.
I tried dunking under swimming but felt my legs start to give up on me. But my fight or flight responses were kicking in. We were getting closer to the islan... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've always wondered this.... especially when a bottle of other soda has usually around the same amount, but is extremely sweeter.
30 years ago my grandfather dug a well. It supplies our home and has a pump to supply water to a mini water tower thing to give our homes water pressure.
Another person built a house nearby and there was an agreement for them to plumb into our fresh water supply for limited domestic use: Cooking, cleaning, toilets etc. This agreement has stood for 10 years without any problems.
So what's been going wrong?
The house next door was sold.
It's now starting to get hot. So the next door neighbour has been filling a swimming pool. I don't see a problem with this. What I do see a problem is they fill the pool and drain it EVERY SINGLE DAY.
Based on my calculations they're wasting close to 400,000 litres of water every single day.
When I told them they can't waste water like this. They told me to f*** myself because the water is free and nobody owns it.
So I gave them a warning showing that the water supply belonged to us and it wasn't free at all. I was told to f*** off again. I watch... keep reading on reddit ➡
For a very long time, I couldn't sleep because whenever I tried to, my cat went insane, running all over the house, and meowing so loudly that I couldn't sleep at all. When it came out that my friend used to have a similar problem, he told me about an easy solution for that. Every time he was about to sleep, he just poured some warm water into a cup, and put his cat's tail into it. He told me that it usually takes about 2 hours until he finishes to lick it, so there was always enough time to fall asleep before he finished.
I hope it helps some of u who have a similar problem.
This is a commonly misunderstood fact. I learned in zoology that they’re not actually trying to wash their food. The type of skin and ridges they have on their hands can feel better underwater so they’re really trying to figure out what it is before they eat it.
Here’s some more info, “Raccoons usually wet their food before eating it. People often think that they are washing their food, but that is not the reason for the habit. ... Raccoons wet their food to gather more sensory information about it from nerve endings in their paws. Moistening food enhances a raccoon's understanding of what it is eating.”

Hello Reddit and everyone here
Hope everyone is doing well and feeling healthy.
Recently I realised how easily we focus on these magic methods to boost our wellbeing, lose weight or feel better in anyway. However no one can blame you since it is in human nature to look for so called shortcuts,
I mean who would like to wait for a long time to achieve the goals they set for themselves. Often this makes us ignore the fundamental parts that could bring us the most results. So whatever your goal is healthwise, here is a simple strategy you can implement to boost your wellbeing IMMENSLY:
DRINK MORE WATER(sry caps).
Water has numerous benefits:
-It flushes body waste
-It helps maintain blood pressure
-It makes minerals and nutrients accessible
-It boosts performance during exercise
-Enhances weight loss by creating sense of fullness and temporarily increase the body’s resting energy expenditure
-Water boosts your energy.
