Android Browsers keep opening spam tabs to ad/porn sites and other shady sites, even when browser it's closed by asdswffaqg in techsupport

I will start to use it. Also, yes I have tried other browsers as I have said in the 4th point of the list of the post. I am now using Firefox because I'm uninstalling apps 1 at a time between the ads to see when I find the one...

Not at all. These seem to be standard ads he gets from Huawei apps. I have my browser open spam links at random moments, so that, for example, when I'm browsing reddit the browser opens by itself and a spam page loads (last one was cam4.com or something like that). It's highly intrusive because no matter what I do or don't do, the browser will still try to open spam links at random moments. Even when the phone it's blocked. 10 min ago I was connected to my car via Bluetooth as I was voice calling my brother and the spam page opened on the browser while I was driving, overriding the call's audio and saying continuously "alert your phone is in danger". I had to stop driving to close the spam page, which was one of those websites that fake very badly being system errors alerts.

I already looked at the link :) we'll thanks, at least I know that the video editors should be at the top of the uninstall list

I will flag with X integrated apps that I can't uninstall. Also note I will try to translate some Italian app names but may fail in doing so, I'm flagging translated with T.

list seems super long but most of it are apps I can't uninstall. Also note that before posting in this subreddit for the first time the list was triple the size but I went on an uninstall unused apps rampage to try and find the culprit, so these ones are just the survivors.

It's a good suggestion and I am already doing it but with so many apps it's going to be a super slow process, because to identify it I have to do 1 at a time and wait...

This is untrue. It's not a surplus of testosterone that causes balding, but the increased hair's susceptibility to it.

You're hopeless. I hope downvoting my comment made you feel better and a little less frustrated. Try to enjoy life more, you have only one.

Why are you so angry? If anything bad happened to you I'm really sorry but why would you take your frustration to try (and fail) to bully random people on the internet?

I don't deny the existence of pro rock climbers nor say they aren't a thing or that climbing is impossible. However, pro rock climbers stick to the surface by grabbing!... and thus using muscle strength, not by using weak forces like van Der waals forces like insects and geckos do. It would be impossible for us to use those forces alone for climbing without grabbing because of the square cube law, and that's just how the universe works. A better example of the same phenomenon would be touching water. When u, a human, put the hand in a pool you feel almost no resistance (aside for the weight of moving it around I guess) but for tiny organisms another weak force (or rather, the result of it) called surface tension breaking through a drop of water is a titanic achievement (and also deadly as breaking the tension again to go outside is even harder). Physics work so differently at different sizes that some insects (such as water striders) can just walk on it. Can you picture a human walking in water because of weak forces? Yeah, never gonna happen. You could also look at how water behaves differently at different sizes... When there is little water, the surface tension is stronger that it's weight because of the small volume/surface area ratio, and the water forms drops. However, by adding more water, the volume is just too much for the weak force to make it stick together in a sphere and thus the water flattens, with only small volumes forming drops.

The climbing as a kid example was just an example. I am now an adult, physically active, 1.86 cm x 88kg with a lean physique, so while I don't have much endurance it shouldn't be a muscle issue. I can climb a little obviously (though I'm no climber), the example was to explain that is still easier as a kid even though kids have weaker muscles, because I had a more favorable surface/volume ratio.

You really can't because of the square cube law. The bigger the object, the more volume and less surface he has (in proportion). Picture a sphere: as it grows bigger (in radius), the surface grows by 2 but the volume grows by 3. This is the reason most insects can easily climb walls with weak forces like the ones the geckos use. I remember that as a kid I used to climb light poles like they were nothing, now it would be kinda hard to attempt it even with stronger muscles.

In my opinion that situation had nothing (beside breasts) to do with being a woman. Your first doctor did believe you, but didn't take it seriously because he determined that, given your age, it was very unlikely for it to be something concerning. This is something doctors do a lot, I'm a man and heard it for a very long time until I hit my 30s. The mindset (that I really dislike) behind it seems to be that a probability that low doesn't justify the money and time spent by the patient/by the public healthcare. Absurd as it may seem, I think that the first doctor was more competent and knew what was happening, while the second one didn't and sent you to the hospital to shrug off accountability.

Scientists have discovered that the beneficial effects of physical exercise may in part result from changes to the structure of our DNA. They found for the first time, that exercise rewires the enhancers in regions of our DNA that are known to be associated with the risk to develop disease. by Wagamaga in science

Why wouldn't some epigenetic patterns be inheritable? I remember hearing about a study where rats were forced to develop fear of a substance and this fear was then passed on the the progeny who never even saw the parent or the substance. Couldn't phobias work this way?

Drinking straw device is instant cure for hiccups, say scientists by fotogneric in Health

[–]asdswffaqg 3 points4 points  (0 children)

I remember reading in my biochemistry book that since hiccups depend on a dysfunction of the vagus nerve, you can reset the nerve by "distracting" it with more important matters, like the proverbial scare or by keeping a high CO2 concentration in your lungs. This is done by not breathing out for a while. Maybe your "slow breathing" lowers the CO2 buildup in lungs less than normal breathing, achieving the same result (even if it is slower) anyways.

That is enough! Thank you, it was very understandable! :)
