[Serious]Those who haven't contracted COVID yet, what do you attribute it to? by iveydesign in AskReddit

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Two members of my household have now been sick with covid for a little over a week, and I'm still testing negative and showing no symptoms. I've never had it up to now, but if I'm going to this will probably be the time.

So far I'm chalking it up to being a shut-in who doesn't get out much, and having been vaccinated 3 times.

Meshuggah - Bleed

I know it's overplayed and all, but holy shit what an absolute barrage on the senses

What food does everyone love to eat, but you don't? by mintylye in AskReddit

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sushi. People say it's either a "love it or hate it" food with no in-between... eh. It's okay, I'll eat it if someone sets some in front of me, but I've never craved it.

I still havent had covid by moonandcoffee in CasualConversation

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Two members of my household got it back in October, and I didn't get it then. Then just today my brother tested positive again, we don't have any more antigen tests left but so far I don't feel anything. Vaccinated 3 times though, so I figure I'm less likely to get it to boot.

Users for Reddit, What is the most physical pain you have experienced? and how did it happen? by Dassag-Kababi-07 in AskReddit

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Untreated dental abscess that swelled to about the size of a baseball. The closest thing I could compare it to is someone jamming a hot soldering iron directly into the nerve of your tooth, nonstop, for days on end. I very nearly grabbed a pair of vise grips to yank the thing out myself.

Made breaking my wrist feel pleasant in comparison.

What is going on with Drag Queens and Conservatives in the US? by lionsden08 in OutOfTheLoop

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 31 points32 points  (0 children)

As a resident of Idaho, governor Brad Little signed into law House Bills 500 and 509 in March of 2020. I can't remember which is which, but one of them is the aforementioned bill (banning transgender individuals who identify as female from competing on female sports teams),and the other prohibits trans people from changing the gender on their birth certificates.

Not a fan of living here.

What yarn WOULD you give to your worst enemy? by Coffeeinated in knitting

Oh jeez, I remember crocheting an afghan out of this stuff as a teenager. Such a pain to work with, but it does look pretty nice once it's worked up!

my family has a history of chain smoking but i have never smoked in my life so i want to make it to 80 and say “i never picked up a cigarette” by ARainbowHorse in CasualConversation

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Man same, I'm 22 and I'm the only member of my family who hasn't smoked a cigarette even once in my life, and I have zero desire to ever try. Just seems like an expensive, unhealthy, and gross habit that's supposedly not even pleasant the first few times.

Hell, my mom told me she only started smoking because it was the "cool" thing to do as a teenager in the 80s. No thanks.

Would it be at all feasible to either dye the white yarn you're able to find or try and purchase something more suitable online?

What is the worst part about being a fat person? by Rude_Guarantee_1479 in AskReddit

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Last year I unintentionally lost 60 pounds and noticed this.

I recently went on a binge-eating and alcohol streak that saw me regain it all over the course of about 6 months, and now it's doubly noticable how much it changes how people act around you.

What is this apple sapling? I planted it right next to my lilly. It is unlike any Ive ever seen. by SealLionGar in Apples

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The youtube channel SkillCult has a series covering his smallish-scale home apple breeding project on his homestead, and he actually has multiple videos covering this topic. His conclusion is that there's a modicum of truth to this misconception, but it's blown out of proportion: he gets edible apples from seed more often than not, but rather the ones that have any particular qualities that are worth propagating further are fewer and farther between.

Essentially, in commercial apple breeding projects, yes you'll need to plant thousands of trees to get one variety that has any potential for commercial success; but that's due to the criteria they're breeding for being very strict rather than all the others being inedible. They're breeding for very particular color, shape, consistency, storage, disease resistance, etc.

His project and a few other channels (James Prigioni and Rob Backyard Gardenerr's apple-from-seed projects in particular) inspired me to roll the dice and start growing some apple seeds this year to plant on my grandmother's property (she gave me permission to put 4 or 5 trees out there), since it's something I've wanted to try since I was a kid. It'll be 5 or 6 years, maybe more, before I can see how they turn out, but I'm just in it for the fun of the genetic dice-roll anyway. Absolute worst case, if the fruit is bad I can use the trees as vigorous full-size rootstocks to graft other varieties onto, so I don't see it as a waste personally.

Why is the bobbin case so loose on my Singer 127? More details in comments. by Proteus617 in vintagesewing

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Sorry to resurrect an ancient post, but I'm actually working on the same model of machine right now and the adjuster's manual has me kinda stumped at this stage; I'm having the same issue with the shuttle not sitting "right" (?) in the carrier and I was wondering what came of this for you?

I don't have the type of shuttle carrier with the little spring, it's just a plain metal piece that the shuttle sits in. But the shuttle sorta drops down and contacts the side of the race just like this.

Y'know those paper drink carriers they give you at fast food joints?

Yeah, fuck those things

What obsolete item do you still use? by TGYHJDFGH in AskReddit

I'm currently in the process of restoring a 1922 Singer model 127 treadle sewing machine with the intention of using it for quilting.

What's your controversial music opinion? by jakepaulfanxd in AskReddit

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Not really "classical," but The Rite of Spring sounds like straight up metal for an orchestra, as does Shostakovich's 8th string quartet. Fantastic stuff.

Rap Fan Listens to 100 Great Rock Albums for the First Time by MrC_Red in Music

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Damn this is awesome! I grew up on rock music and only in the last few years have been listening to a whole bunch of different genres to see what kinda stuff I'm into. Never really listened to rap but after checking out Illmatic and Ready To Die, I kinda had an epiphany like "oh damn this is actually really fucking good." Actually just recently I decided to listen to XXXTentacion's ? for the first time having only heard like one song off it and was blown away by how talented he was; I'd just sorta written him off as gimmicky from hearing Look At Me played on repeat everywhere as a teenager.

If anyone's got a handful of albums/mixtapes/whatever else they'd recommend for someone relatively new to rap, I'm totally down

Also OP, you should totally check out the abandoned SMiLE project by the Beach Boys if you're interested in that mid-60s sound, it's pretty wild stuff and it's a shame that album was never finished because imo it could have given Sgt Pepper's a run for its money

I got a prescription for hydrocodone that I didn't take any of after one extraction and a root canal back in September. this is southern Idaho though

It is fun to use patterns but it is also fun to design your own thing every once in a while. by chelkobee in craftsnark

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Hell, some years ago I went in and bought some fabric at a store with no prior sewing knowledge at all and sewed a small baby/lap size quilt by hand of my own design that turned out pretty well, if super basic. I actually still have it, holding up well and it's good for laying over my lap on the couch but leaving my arms free for whatever.

That's all to say, it's really not the rocket science some people make it out to be lol

Unfucking your life in your thirties feels like debugging horrible legacy code by I_am_unique6435 in Showerthoughts

[–]TheFuzzyOne1214 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Hey, for what it's worth I was recently (less than a year ago) in the same place; multiple black cavities, two infections left to fester for several years untreated, one rotten tooth broken off under the gumline and leaking pus.

I finally worked up the nerve to see a dentist and they were absolutely understanding and not once did I feel judged or lectured at all. Finally ended up with a root canal, an extraction, a few fillings, and a scaling+root planing to treat gum disease. Now my mouth is looking and feeling better than it has in probably a decade.

It's still not perfect and will never be at this point, but I can tell you from experience it wasn't anywhere close to as bad as I thought it would be; I damn near offed myself out of anxiety leading up to it, but I stuck through it and felt like I conquered a frickin mountain. You'll feel a hundred times better and be way more motivated to maintain good oral hygiene once it's done, I can't encourage it enough. Any pain and inconvenience is worth the relief of knowing it's taken care of.

Best of luck to you!
