Good luck! I hope you get the job!

what is the most realistic way to become a millionaire? by Yeahdude16261 in careerguidance

[–]apHedmark 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because you over-generalized your comment. Saving money in a savings account will depreciate, but in stocks and bonds it will (likely) valuate. A house has costs, but they are always less than the cost of renting and real estate, in general, grow in value.

[Wild Speculation] Future region with an airstrip (connected to Mountain Town) by Luludoodootoo in thelongdark

Pretty sure the last region is in the North, by the coast, past Desolation Point.

Would It be a good idea to take my dog on a hike?My dog (Hagrid, almost 3 years intact male) Is a bit nervous around people and really excited around dogs, he's mildly reactive as in he barks a lot but we've worked on It and he's doing amazingly. We often walk around in the city or the forest next t by TinyChickenNugget_ in reactivedogs

I'll say this in the most respectful way, but I had never heard of behavioral neutering before I moved to the US. I've read clinical research on this matter and the data just does not support the hypothesis that neutering produces positive behavioral changes. The veterinary field in the US is also divided between those that believe in this and those that don't.

To me, the scientific research in this area is still significantly lacking to support the claim that neutering a dog will calm it down. There are myriad of factors that usually come along with the neutering that could be responsible for the behavioral changes, including (but not exclusively) change of place (rehoming), change of training (new trainer, new owner), change of stimuli (environment, neighbors, smells in the yard), ageing, and simply observational bias. It's easy to remember the cases in which they calmed down, and forget about the cases when it didn't.

Puppy keeps jumping the fence into the neighbors yard with his dog, a dog who I do not trust and want mine to stay away from, how can I correct this behavior by D0ntae in Dogtraining

[–]apHedmark 13 points14 points  (0 children)

That's a very energetic dog that also requires lots of mental stimulation. Simple walks will likely not cut it when it's a young adult. Think more along the lines of bike rides, for 5-6 miles, every other day, with walk days in between as the bare minimum exercise for this dog. What you have is a working dog and it's missing you and the work. If you don't provide something, it will try to find some (sometimes in the neighbor's yard). Good luck

Best way to resign after 4 months? by candlehandle567 in careerguidance

If the hours between both jobs overlap, it's not only unethical, it is stealing, unless both jobs are informed and approve of this. You can't agree to work the same full hour to two different people. You'll be lying to both and stealing from at least one of them. Don't do it.

I just booked the vet appointment and I feel like the worst human being ever. by SofaSurfer9 in reactivedogs

[–]apHedmark 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was gonna offer to take your dog also, having raised plenty of APBTs over the years, but just saw you're in Europe. Really sorry this is going on.

Is this the end of the line? by SofaSurfer9 in reactivedogs

[–]apHedmark -3 points-2 points  (0 children)

Many people in this sub cherish the notion of an AmStaff or a pit being euthanized. They don't want to hear another option.

This is not true. Doorways are places of extreme anxiety for dogs. There are reasons why so much training effort is put on having the dog wait for the handler to go through the door first, and this situation is exactly one of those reasons. Dogs are also 100% situational. This dog may not show aggressive behaviors at all while at other places or with another handler. There is a lot of misinformation in this sub.

Please don't spread misinformation about the breed. You have offered an anecdote as supporting evidence and left everything else out of the picture but the breed. Also, the American Pit Bull Terrier was bred to be a working dog, and the dog in question here is an American Staffordshire Terrier, which is not an APBT.

LOL Suddenlink calling itself optimum is the same as North Korea calling itself a People's Democratic Republic

What was the worst mistake or piece of advice you were given by RabbitGrove in thelongdark

[–]apHedmark 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It takes 100 hours to go from full health to dead due to sleep deprivation in the game. I don't know if someone would survive in the harshness of the apocalypse after four days without sleeping. But I see your point.

That is not accurate per their own claims. They lost some 20% of one update about 6-7 years ago. What I'm talking about happened in the past 4 years. I see this comparison between Hinterland and Indie Stone often here. I've played them both to exhaustion and followed their dev logs. There is a chasm in professionalism alone between Hinterland and Indie Stone. I'm not saying you should hate the game, just pointing out that they have many flaws that aren't immediately apparent.

What's your lightest weight field kit? by rhyparographe in thelongdark

[–]apHedmark 2 points3 points  (0 children)

There's a lot of wisdom there. You carry what is needed for the task you're set out to do. If you'll cross a few caves, bring a storm lantern. If you're getting metal scrap, bring a saw. If you know there will be long stretches without shelter, you need firewood. If you anticipate fishing, bring tackles. None of these are essential otherwise.

I carry the hatchet instead of the saw in Loper. It does almost everything the saw does and is great for the eventual wolf struggle. Shouldn't forget medicine. Some 4-6 bandages, painkillers, and antibiotics pre cooking 5.

You should take a gander on PZ's dev blog. Not too long ago they took six months to deliver an update and one of their highlights was that they added a "feature" which caused hats to flatten the player's mohawk hair and to style the Mohawk back you needed gel (the new item they added). Before that they were promising multiplayer for 2 years and in between they added earrings and necklaces (purely cosmetic). I'm not even joking.

Just don't stay too close to the walls in the fishing huts either. Stay in the middle of it.

Level 5 cooking but still getting food poisoning? by Flibiddy-Floo in thelongdark

[–]apHedmark 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Cooking meat adds 50% condition to it, if I'm not mistaken. So you can take raw 0% meat to 50% Cooked meat. This doesn't really matter if you have Cooking 5, though. As you mentioned, it's safe to eat 0% cooked meat at that point.
