    I'd like to add that a hot shower is a powerful tool for bringing a trip back on track.

    Honestly if you can put together an energetic 5 paragraph DD post to one if those subreddits you’ve got a good chance at a successful pump and dump scheme. I got caught up in the GME hype when my friend convinced me to buy in. The rush of seeing my portfolio increase by tens of thousands of dollars per hour was enough to make me think they were onto something. I wanted to believe. But sifting through their posts it became obvious they were nothing but numerologists.

    In the end I didn’t make (or lose) much money on GME because I didn’t quit while I was ahead. But it was definitely a fun experience.

    You might have that problem in your first job. But after you’ve got relevant experience on your resume and know what to watch out for it’s much easier to avoid a toxic workplace. And if you have desirability in the job market you can demand quite a lot of comfort.

    I don’t know if this is a perfect solution, but every time I’ve had shrooms I’ve started at a lower dose and doubled it later if I’m feeling into it. Sometimes I’m not and I’m glad that I’ve played it safe. It’s hard to know how things will go until you’re in that state of mind.

    But I'm really, really not liking a taste of this drug-destigmatized culture I'm getting a taste of in ultraliberal California.

    I think the culture you’re naming is more like the “microdose shrooms with your friends in the park” type of drug use. Every city has self destructive drug users. If California has a monopoly on anything it’s that it’s a bit more common to do psychedelics and if you mention them at your white collar job the response will be like “oh cool yeah I do that sometimes too”.

    It's also a good financial idea for me - I think I've watched 3-4 hours of Netflix in the last 6 months.

    I support any effort to force change to usb c. But on the other hand if I was picking the ports as you can on a framework laptop I’d go with just 1 Thunderbolt and 2 usb a.

    The 18 hour estimate isn’t what I’m thinking about. I’m thinking about how much video playback you can get out of it. If I’m not near an outlet it’s nice to get 7-8 hours of watch time.

    I’m not a huge Apple fan but… I honestly can’t get excited about non Apple Silicon laptops right now.

    As someone that’s had panic attacks myself I’m worried it would be triggering to see too much of someone experiencing them. But I do appreciate your description. Tom and I are probably not too different in our ways of grounding ourselves in those types of situations. You’re supposed to focus on the environment - the colors, the sounds, the smells. But if the environment is the source of stress then the next best option is to ground yourself through your physiological state. Anything to keep you from looping over the stressor in your mind is helpful.

    I felt the same until I realized they actually reduced the top bezel - they didn't drop down the notch into previous screen real estate. It seems like the notch could be much smaller, though. Without all the extra face ID sensors why do they need a solid inch of width?

    Last year I decided to eat a lot less meat/dairy. I've removed 80-90% of my animal product consumption without much effort. It's a lot easier thanks to where I live - but to be fair a ton of people live in places with plenty of vegetarian options. And if you cook most of your own meals then is all down to what you get at the grocery store.

    I don't think I'll ever be a strict vegetarian. I don't actually think it's unethical to eat meat. But it's definitely better to not involve animal suffering in my day-to-day lunch choices.
