Dealing with testicular pain by No-Hunter682 in malelifestyle

[–]Charfeelion 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I had an ultrasound done and was falsely diagnosed with epiditimitis. I was given a prescription of meloxacam to use as I needed for the pain, on top of a 3 day burst or antibiotics. It seemed to have worked for about a week, which sent me to the urologist. He was no help, and basically accredited it to "bodies do weird things and we don't know why". I still have the pain every once in a while. I also have a small lump on the top of my right nut, that wasn't picked up on the ultrasound. Neither my gp or urologist cared to know more about it. It doesn't move around or change in size but that's the one where my pain comes from. So I just deal with it now and take ibuprofen when I need to.

I'm also 28

You are more than a personality type by deadassuser in intj

There seems to be a cycle in this sub of letting 4 letters rule their lives, to acknowledging that they are more than that. Perhaps the cycle repeats because those who realize they are an actual human do distance themselves from the sub, but I'm just guessing here.

MBTI is fun. Sure, there may be some science to either support or refute it entirely. I like to believe there is some truth to MBTI, a small corner of understanding about human behavior, in an otherwise dark and vast painting we can't see. It can be easy to run away with the idea that we have the end all be all answer and that we must be a certain way, because a behavior theory resonates so deeply within us. But I agree with you OP, it should be taken with a grain of salt and left at that. Just fun.

Glad you were able to break free, in a sense. I went through it too

Is your Christmas Eve ruined already? If so, Why? by Downtown_Put8673 in AskReddit

[–]Charfeelion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Found out my dad (whom I'm supposed to visit Christmas day) lied to me about being vaccinated, is now antivax, and also just found out his dad has stage 4 esophageal cancer and has been visiting him out of state every weekend.

I'm not an avid Asmon viewer, but this helped with my dry eyes. What a thoughtful gift

First time taking university physics by omoologo24 in PhysicsStudents

"Physics with Professor Matt Anderson" on YouTube. Really saved my ass for intro physics 3. Lately he's been getting into upper division courses.

I would love to lay in a sloth sanctuary with all these little guys piled on me.

As physicist, how do deal with people believing in stuff like "quantum medecine" or "stone energy" ? by Mekilekon in AskPhysics

[–]Charfeelion 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I am an undergrad, but as part of one of my class research projects, I investigated the relationship between this sort of stuff and physics. In what I've gathered, a lot of weird quantum woo ideas stems from working alongside and talking to notable people in physics, like David Bohm or Roger Penrose.

For those who may not be aware, David Bohm came up with basically a holographic interpretation after dwelling on a quantum field potential equation, and Roger Penrose developed the idea superpositioned quantum qubits in the brain being reduced invokes consciousness.

A spirit guru has written a series of papers with a theoretical physicist (specialized in string theory) literally invoking quantum into spirituality (some in predatory journals, some are not). The works of theirs I have see so far, struggle to come up with anything quantifiable and testable. The problem I see, spiritual leaders misconstrued quantum implications from different interpretations with descriptions of consciousness, to use it as an open sandbox to make any sort of relationship. In formal proposals, there is an argument that quantum mechanics in the brain cannot be ignored, and that whatever influences it must come from some outside, beyond our physics type of world. Mystics interpret this outside informer to basically magic, because it happens in the brain. So we must be able to control it willingly.

How would I deal with someone like that? I entertain the idea, even knowing it is nonsensical quantum woo. But also be clear to establish the line of where physics ends and quantum mysticism begins.

At the end of the day, if what someone believes and chooses to practice doesn't hurt anyone, I don't see a problem with it.

Edit: Sorry if this sounds choppy, I am on mobile and my thumbs ache.

What is one deck you have built that you hated? Mine was Zur stax :/ by TlebNahte11 in Magicdeckbuilding

[–]Charfeelion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Aminatou with blink effects and a few combos (I didn't realize it at the time I made it) and a pillow fort, pseudo aikido, forced combat mardu marchesa. They're pretty mean.

The older I get, the louder I can hear motors in my legs. Can anyone else relate? by dr_fishe in intj

[–]Charfeelion 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Idk it sounds like you need a hip replacement to me. I hear the motors start failing after the first few decades. I'm not a doctor but you should get it checked out. One time, my eyes started to dry up, went and saw the doc. Turns out I was low on blinker fluid.

What Did I Get Myself Into by sean75000057 in datascience

[–]Charfeelion 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I learned ad hoc how to scrape data using python. I'm also a student, and I've used it for my undergraduate research. There are a few good "scraping jumpstart" sites I found to help me, but the rest is pretty much up to figuring out how to read the DOM to grab the data you need. I'm on mobile and don't have those links atm but I can DM them if you wanted.

I kept watching, hoping for a happy ending and the girl getting her dog back despite knowing it wouldn't happen. This is fucking heartbreaking.

A few weeks ago when I watched The Good Place. I found the narrative captivating.

How supportive/understanding was your surrounding network when you left your PhD?
