we do the half day off on fridays before holiday weekends too. BUT it's technically manager discretion, so no it does not mean you can spend 4 pto hours to get the whole friday off. if you want to take the whole day off it's still 8 hours

ya i forgot the ďif your workload allowsĒ caveat. im gonna get mine though, just need to hit the touch id every half hour or so and slack will show me as green

Stronglifts is a solid program for beginners. I went from squatting 125 to 225 in a little longer than 2 months. It could stand to be improved though, it involves a lot of squats, can get monotonous, and doesn't quite hit enough areas. I switched to GZCLP; here's a good infographic that describes it - https://saynotobroscience.com/gzclp-infographic/

The progression is really quite easy once you get into it, and it covers a lot of compound lifts. Also does a good job of improving both work capacity and heavy lifting.

hell yeah im like a year into this. i started out with a really bad secured card that i put $400 on, then somebody clued me into the Discover secured card which is REALLY GOOD so i put 2k on that, and then timb threw me an apple card when i bought my air. Score's up like 100+ points already.

the discover is great cause you get cashback and if you pay on time for only 6 months you get your deposit back

when I started rebuilding my credit I got a $500 limit card with an annual $40 fee. I donít think Iíve ever used it. Iím in the 800s now and I still have to pay that $40 because I donít want to close the card because my average credit age will take a huge hit, especially since my student loans were paid off last year and my credit age dropped an insane amount. cool system!!!

according to clearscore im not eligible for literally any credit cards (my credit score's like 475 or something?) so idfk how im fixing that

thatís what a secured credit card is for, you give them the money to hold so that if you default they arenít out any cash, and they give you a card. itís secured by your own money as opposed to regular unsecured cards where they loan you money that you promise to pay back

lol yeah. i've got this stupid rear end opensky card for my first and its like 29 a year AND you have to call them (NOT GO ONLINE, CALL) to get them to stop sending paper statements, which they charge $4/mo for

bank fees led to a big part of radicalizing me. I donít miss the days when Iíd argue with my bank about reordering debits so that a $2 charge at a gas station led to 2 or 3 overdrafts instead of 1 (not to mention not allowing you to just deny any debit attempt that would put you into negative), but Iím glad they finally passed laws to stop that poo poo, even though I never got any relief personally from it

yeah pnc or national city i forget who actually precalculated those end-of-monthly debits and did the biggest one first if it'd overdraft you

PNC bought national city. I think almost all the big banks did that, the reasoning they gave was ďwell, you wouldnít want your mortgage payment to not go through, would you?Ē which, ok, but then give me the option to opt out and do it in chronological order. they would not because the real reason is they want those fees. took a law around 2012 or so? to force chronological ordering iirc, and to allow you to opt out of overdraft coverage as well I believe

edit: may have some of this incorrect, looks like overdraft protection became opt in shortly after the 2008 crisis

also thereís a type of actual doctor that is not really. if you ever see a doc with the title D.O. instead of MD be very wary. Doctors of Osteopathy are a bullshit offshoot of an old discredited methodology that the AMA decided to make a deal with a long time ago and give them official titles but itís based on an early 20th century quack and his practices. theyíve pivoted to claiming they take a holistic look at medicine (which is something real docs could be better about) but on the whole they come from crappier schools and a worse curriculum.

when i was a kid we had a pair of earmuffs that had a mic on the outside, and then it would cut out when it detected a gunshot. worked great, and you could crank the volume so you had amplified hearing when you were waiting for a deer to walk by that was circa 1993 and it owned

these turned out to be the best option for woodworking, you can turn the external mic up to whatís comfortable and then it compresses anything above like 90dB with 2ms to the max volume setting youíre on. for some reason (market size?) woodworker muffs tend to be passive from 24 - 30 suppression but there are very few active options that use compression - though there are lots of radio tuner versions. anyways, they are amazing for woodworking or anything intermittently loud.

iím betting the reason airpods have an in-ear microphone is because noise cancelling as a concept Works really well but is very sensitive to calibration i.e very slight distance changes in the parameters. if you donít cancel it completely you get a bit of the original signal and the inverse and they can add up. thereís probably a generic distance parameter and then they just adjust from the feedback. this is probably also why they have that nice sealed ear test. itís extremely cool but the wild part is itís working on ms level - which is a 100 microseconds which is a decent amount of time to process and adjust. especially when tuned, processors are really fast yeah

this is really interesting to me, because my fiance is the same way, but ive never had issues keeping water out of my nose

thereís a small trick to it I learned when I was young and a swimmer. you have to ever so slightly push out to create positive pressure. if doing it right you will have just a few bubbles escape from the outward pressure. some people do it naturally, some donít. when doing an underwater flip I will forcibly push a little air out to keep from water going in my nose. I only realized it wasnít fully natural bc my gf canít do it either

I would keep your 1080ps and only grab any big 'showcase' movies at 4k, I've had this 50" 4k for a few years now and I have a tiny selection of 4k film files stored.



Mostly if I do watch a newer movie in 4k it's viewed once and deleted, no storing multiple 50gb+ files if I can help it.

This is a good strategy. I do a modified version where I always look for 4k but unless it's a real showcase/visual stunner of a movie I have it set to only look for encodings that come in under like 14GB/hr. Then a separate quality filter for the Gimme the Best movies.

Less than half the movies survive on the drive after watching, too.

Absolutely love my LG C1. Last 2 tvs were value picks - a 42in 60hz 4k Vizio, then a 55in 60hz 4k Vizio, both under $1k - because there was a certain confluence of features I've been waiting for since like 2015. Last year's models were the first to hit those requirements without being insane $3k tvs. 120Hz, 4k, HDR, OLED, VRR, HDMI 2.1 on all ports - it's got everything I wanted, no compromises, and the price was solid. Set for the next 6 years at least.
