How to prevent static cling on conan pants (terado fabric)?
by u/Rishloos in r/Aritzia 8 hours ago

No problem! Dryer sheets are one of those weird household items that you wouldn’t think have plenty of uses, but they do. There are lots of ideas on google, aside from static removal, if you’re ever curious. c:

Finally uncluttered my plants and cleaned the living room!

Those skulls are so cool, I especially love the jawbone(?). Where did you pick those up?

Run a dryer sheet over them.

Decades of research reveals very little difference between male and female brains - once brain size is accounted for, any differences that remained were small and rarely consistent from one study to the next, finds three decades of data from MRI scans and postmortem brain tissue studies.

Ah, yes, that species where the male becomes a set of permanent balls for the female. Lovely.

Finished my winter set just in time for spring!

Not gonna lie, I totally interpreted the title as pessimistic irony and laughed. But these look amazing! Especially that back pattern on the mitts.

Yeah, I'm really glad I purchased it. Now I understand what people mean when they say plants "brighten up the space", ha.

I’m female. Lol. Good guess though.

The Great Unfuckening
by u/Rishloos in r/ufyh 2 days ago

Last week, I started to rearrange my desk setup, then I stopped because I became too busy at school. Most of this stuff was from inside the drawers (a standout were the seven external drives I found, sheesh), along with some other random crap thrown in from other areas of the unit. I decided that tonight was the time to finish everything, and this is the result. I also sold all of my comics (65 softcovers and 15 hardcovers) tonight, which you can see in the first picture at the bottom. Yay for more shelf space.

P.S. Ignore the carpet, it's ten years old (yuck!) and will hopefully be replaced this year, landlord permitting. About time. cx

/r/declutter monthly challenge: Clothing & closet decluttering

My problem area is definitely the scarf mound in my closet. I have a lot of scarves in colours that I love, but I never actually wear them because they’re too heavy or don’t completely match my aesthetic. It needs to be perfect for me to wear it, and only a couple scarves actually fit that bill from what I’ve noticed. I’ll be going through the pile this month and seeing what I can sell/donate.

This, jfc. It's horrifying. My friend caught this person the other day in North Vancouver, and I go to that same bank...

A website that provides more than 2000 professional resources for content creators, filmmakers and designers.

You posted this same link seven days ago, then like... Four other times in the last month. Chill.

Does this xerographica need more water? Some of the leaves look a little sad despite an earlier soak.

Is it okay to prune the dead leaves? I'll ease off on the watering for now and keep checking, then, definitely don't want to overwater. Thanks for the reply.

First vaccine to fully immunize against malaria builds on pandemic-driven RNA tech

So the vaccine was successful in mice, but it hasn't been tested on humans, unlike what the title implies (to me anyway). Are successful results in mice usually a slam-dunk guarantee for successful trials in humans? What kind of differing variables do they need to watch for, if any?

Does this xerographica need more water? Some of the leaves look a little sad despite an earlier soak.

Hi all, this is my first air plant, I purchased her three days ago. When I got home, the tips of the leaves were really u-shaped and crispy, so I gave her a quick soak (~10 minutes) after letting some tap water sit out for 24h. It didn't seem to do anything, so I put the plant back in the water the next evening. Same thing, no visible results.

So... Should I go for a longer soak? Or am I risking over-watering? I'm concerned the leaves that are still super curled-up and wrinkly will get worse if I add more water, since the last two soaks didn't seem to improve things.

TIA for any help!

Hoarder mother won't let me de clutter my room

My mother did this too. She wasn't a hoarder, but she would often "store" things in my closet and under my bed. I would find things months after she initially hid them there. It really affected my sense of consistency and my overall mental health, since it felt like my boundaries were being violated. If your mother is open to discussion about it, you could try something like this: "I get overwhelmed if I don't have enough space, or if there's too much clutter where I spend my time, and it's hard for me to live with all this stuff so close to me as a result. It's okay if you don't really understand this, because I know everyone is different, and your preferences might not be the same as mine - but it would help so much if you respected how I feel about this, and allow me to keep my room my own, because I'm really hurting right now." Note that this keeps the focus on you, and doesn't accuse her of anything, instead it gives her the opportunity to offer a resolution. Framing it as "helping" could also motivate her to act, since "helping" is better than being told to "stop doing something".

Many things I can flair this as. “Scabs” from a LEEP procedure done on 2/22/21. Felt something and started to pull these out. I think this is normal...

Cool, thanks for the clarification!

I believe it's a procedure to remove cancerous/abnormal cells from a woman's lower reproductive tract, using a heated loop of wire.

TIL that McDonald's French fries were fried in beef tallow(beef fat) till 1990, when they were pressured to make their fries 'healthier' over cholesterol concerns and switched to vegetable oil.

I'm too young to remember the fried pies at McDonald's, but I do know about A&W (Canada)'s apple pies. They're still fried, and they're stupid good. The outside is so crispy, and it tastes like a churro with the brown sugar mix.

I am absolutely speechless.

That's not even anatomically correct, since the vagina is actually a muscle inside the body. Lol.

I'm sick of "memes." They are a disease.
by u/Rishloos in r/nosurf 1 week ago

Honestly, it almost feels like many people have become reliant solely on memes to communicate, due to how much exposure they get to them. And if memes are the only way these people communicate, it can get old, annoying, and tiresome quickly. I hardly even keep track of memes or go out of my way to learn about new ones, so half of the time, I’m out of the loop and frustrated because it feels like x person is speaking a totally different language. And I hate it. I’m only 26, I’m not old-man-yells-at-cloud. A lot of memes are offensive to me too, not in a rabid SJW way, but just... They rub me the wrong way. And yeah, it’s always the same stuff in comment sections, etc, even on reddit.

anyone struggle with receiving gifts after decluttering?

Wow, I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this! I think putting your foot down and giving her a stern talking to, an assertive one, is the only good course of action here - she’s not respecting your space or your values, and it’s clearly frustrating for you - understandably so, because and nobody should be subjected to that kind of situation. She needs to understand that.
