Re: Names and gender in comic books

I saw not too long ago that Black characters tend to have lightning/electricity based powers, enough that it's a trope. I will have to read this!

Re: Flying Drones for fun (U.S. rules)

Right now I'm just trying it out. :) I'm going to a bunch of drone talks at the EAA next week, and I'm particularly interested in checking out agriculture and conservation work. There are pretty simple ways to test for plant health and soil moisture if you have the right sensors. But that's just a t...

Flying Drones for fun (U.S. rules)

Drones (aka sUAS - small Unmanned Aircraft Systems) have become a thing in the last few years so I thought I would write up a short thing about the rules governing flying them recreationally. This is all information you can find on the FAA's website for drones . If you're thinking about flying a dro...

Re: What was your first pet?

I had a cat when I was young, she was a kitten I chose to keep. The mama cat was ours too but she was mean so as a self serving little kid I chose the kitten who was cuter and loved me and purred a lot. I had her a long time, and was very sad when she died. But also now I kind of feel guilty about t...

Babies are all very different about the crying. May you get one that isn't horrible.

Re: do you have mice?

I don't think so, we just had an exterminator out to check for issues because there's a weird noise. We did a while back though (we plugged the holes with steel wool & spray foam). We found out because one of the cats decided to bring us a present... on the bed... in the middle of the night. *shudder*

Re: Muscle cramps

It just occurred to me that perhaps the hobbling itself is part (or all) of the cure. What if I've been drinking disgusting pickle juice all these years for no reason at all? Thanks a lot, forum.

Re: Muscle cramps

Massage worked for me, if it's chronic. Now I use a foam roller - actually on my lower back? IDK why that helps my legs. Definitely also potassium or magnesium. I think most people try potassium (eat bananas) but I always find I'm low on Mg instead and potassium never did much for mine. Both are use...

Re: Just Can't Let It Go

seriously you're so sleep deprived it's hard to remember anything.

IDK I try to avoid the wars, but probably the one I get into the most is the vaccines since they impact everyone. We're having measles outbreak here that the antivaxxers purposefully targeted our somali community.
