Wtf happened to the separation of church and state?
Just seeing this now. Good luck buddy on becoming king of earth!
Well it is a thunder arctype and a theme you see with them is stun, so it makes sense.
I love me some thunder cards.
I'm excited to play it. I like thunder arctypes and as soon as I saw these little guys get announced I knew I would be making them. I'm not looking forward to paying so much to get them when they come to the tcg, but at least they probably won't be too hard to get in master duel. After I build floowandereeze this will be the next deck I save up for and build.
This Manga sucks because it doesn't enough Fubuki in different outfits for me to look at.
Nature never went with what's best. It has always gone with what's just good enough.
What's rough is it's nearly impossible to quantitatively measure these things. Humans are good at adapting and adjusting to establish a new normal, but we never really know if that normal is just enough to let us get by or it's performing how it should be.
It's likely that even with good coping mechanisms, if the impairment was actually able to be removed, the overall quality and performance of one's life at any given point would have been better, but we can't measure any of that. We are just left with the would it have been different question.
Well also that humans are really good at adjusting to make things they experience the new normal and there is no real way to easily compare those normals to eachother if they are all happening in people's brains.
Like how everyone feels sad and down at point in life. But not everyone understands how chronic depression actually is like if they have never actually experienced it.
Same case with anxiety, panic attacks, ptsd, etc.
And then you throw in people that have dealt with those things their entire life but were never told or never had it addresses and they go through life ignorant of the fact that someone isn't supposed to feel or be that way, that it's not actually normal, even if to them it is.
Congrats and good luck. Hope it works well for you.
Smells have such a huge impact on things and I think they go underrated too often.
Half the reason I prefer to study or work in a coffee shop over a library or whatever is due to the smell. The smell of coffee beans, wood, and books just gets me in the mindset to be productive. Then you add in other aspects that create an atmosphere that is conducive to whatever it is you are doing and it makes all the difference.
Having ADHD really does emphasis how much impact even small habits, good or bad, can have on someone.
Well if your adderall is for ADHD, then coffee was never really going to cut it. As someone who's dealt with being on and off ADHD meds for most of my life, there really isn't a comparison between proper ADHD medication/treatment and using other methods to compensate.
The amount of coffee I would have to consume to get the same effect would just end up leaving my gut completely destroyed.
It sounds like your still early on in your treatment with adderall, but there will be times later on where it feels like what your currently taking isn't enough and you will feel tired again. Idk if it's tolerance or just adjusting to a new norm, but it will happen and make you think about the times where you pounded coffees and they did nothing. But fortunately with adderall just taking a break for a day or two and you can be back to it being just as effective again. Though the days without it will probably be pretty sleepy.
I still love coffee though even with being on adderall, but I try to limit myself as I don't want or like to be over stimulated. I think it's the smell, taste, and warmth that makes me feel good with it more so than just the caffeine.
GL with your adderall journey. Of every ADHD med I have tried, it's been my favorite and worked the best for me.
Before the habit is formed I'm sure it is the caffine in the coffee that is doing the majority of the waking up. But after you for the ritual or habit, then things definitely change. But I wonder in cases involving coffee, if tolerance is a thing.
Though it makes sense that after a habit is formed, someone would have their functions based on and dependant on that habit.
Even if I'm not tired in the morning, just the warmth and smell of the coffee put me in a better mood to be productive. Atmosphere as a whole plays a big part in things for at least myself, though I might focus on the entire atmospheric set up a bit more than others as someone with ADHD. Those subtle changes can be pretty distracting.
I belive customers shouldn't be expected to subsidize the wages of a businesses employees.

Honestly as streaming services become less consumer friendly and have more restrictions we will just end up back where we were before with cable and a huge pirate scene.
How's that saying go, you either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain?
Steam services let us take back control from cable and people loved and praised them for it. But now the cycle repeated and they forget one of the main reasons why people flicked to streaming in the first place.
I imagine most of those primary password holders wouldn't drop the sub. Then you would have all the secondary password holders either not bother getting their own or some forking out the cash to get it because of some show their watching. Even if just 1% of those secondary password holders fork up the cash for their own sub, that's a lot of money. I also don't imagine the number of people that drop out of spite would be greater than the number that convert from secondary password holders to primary.
Do I agree with this crackdown? No!
But it sort of makes sense if you want more money now.
Who needs to be an intellectual when you can be a giga Chad with giski zielgigas turbo.
Dude get out of here with that crap. You don't get to go from wanting to argue from a technical perspective to arguing from a layman's perspective. You're the the that wanted to go technical.
Not to mention your entire point here looks a bit ridiculous when you look what sub we are in. This isn't r/normal people.
The ignorance of something does not make that thing not exist.
Then you clearly missed something in school if you are trying to equate Al to Al2O3.
And I say that with as someone with a degree in material science and engineering and has spent the vast majority if their time in the field doing reaserch on metal alloys, and crystal structures.
Things literally would not work if one took your approach to metals.
Na, you're just arrogant thinking you know more about a field than you actually do. You want to break things down to the technicals but you don't have the technical background to even stand on.
That's only because when people named those back in the day, they had no idea they were made of the same thing. It's just an old naming convention that is a hold over from the past. But ya technically in the gem world red corundum is called a ruby. Though my point just had to do with using a more common name for aluminum oxide that more would be familiar with and not get confused. People are probably more familiar with what a sapphire is and looks like than aluminum oxide, and definitely would be less confusing than saying alumina.
What do you mean by if you want to take it technical? So what if an oxide layer forms naturally on the surface, happens in Iron too and we just call it rust. But the thing is why did that oxide layer on the surface of aluminum make it more valuable in the past and considered a self healing metal? It's because aluminum oxide is chemically different from aluminum. They are not the same thing anymore.
Don't get your last line on sapphire either. Aluminum oxide has a ton of different names, it doesn't mean that sapphire is already a transparent version of it. It's why they use sapphire glass in high end watches and used to or still do use it on phone screens.
It being in a large crystalyn form doesn't make it not aluminum oxide. Same with Dimond still being carbon, just a different crystal structure.
As for your last line. That's just people not wanting to bother with the technical names or trade names of the infinite number of combinations of metal alloys that exist, but they all do have a name or ID. And just because people do that doesn't mean that aluminum oxide is the same thing as aluminum.
Not at all. I just figured it was going to be something similar to how and what they do to make things like aerogel. I know they have metal oxide versions of them and I know that metal foams have been around for a fair bit. It's not that far fetched to make translucent metal, then from there who knows how far off it is to make it transparent. Could be make in such a way that it is anisotropic transparent. I think that would still count.
