I've already got a small saucer full of leaves just from repotting this one, so hopefully I'll have a ton of babies before too long! Also, happy cake day!

Where did you get this one from? I've been trying to pick one up in the UK.

Just started lifting again after suffering from costochondritis for about 3 years. Started out extremely tentatively and I don't dare work my pecs at all but managed the whole session without causing a flare up. Can anyone share any tips on lifting with this condition? Most advice online is simply not to and wait for the chest to heal.

Shortly there'll be higher tax than the rest of UK on salaries over 26k though.

I firmly believe that if you can't share everything with your spouse you're not in a healthy relationship.

Perhaps, but if you've got persistent problems do you really want to bring down your friends and family by going on and on about it. Id prefer to meet a professional once or twice a week who I can moan to about these things. Much less selfish.

English officers and detectives get mad bonus and kick backs for getting sexual "predators" off the street. So they just follow the narrative of a lying female and support her lie to get their bonus money. Whatever doesn't support the lie is conveniently omitted.

This is what happens when a department is forced to believe all claims and has monetary backing to do so.

Bonuses? You must be joking.

Wow I always heard the gender pay gap was just a myth..

ProfMarmoset 19 points

This is just one piece of anecdotal evidence. It tells us nothing at all about systematic pay differences on the basis of gender.

And then when said students are in work paying tax they pay for your decripit body in the NHS nursing home/hospice/hospital. Fair trade I think.

But what if you're an English student who had to pay fees and tax?

I’d imagine it’s a lot easier to calculate your FI in the UK because you have universal healthcare. Though from what little I know about it, you will probably want to purchase supplemental insurance to get better care.

ProfMarmoset 1 point

For the time being yes. I don't know anyone who needs to buy supplemental insurance. However, for people like me in their 30s it's actually harder because we don't know whether universal healthcare will exist in 10, 20, or 30 years when we are likely to need it the most.

I don't care about organic. I just want eggs from chickens that live a mostly good life, where they can go outside for real and get dust baths and live an ok life.

Make a term that ensures that and I'll buy those eggs.

You should care about organic. Antibiotic resistance is terrifying.

I'm going to get one I think. No idea what I'll use it for yet. Probably keep it on my desk at work spend 5 minutes over lunch writing what I did the previous day, as well as record the various exercise and dieting fads that I follow from time to time.

I've kept diaries over the years and it's always fascinating to go back and read what you did, thought, and felt in the past.

Probably best to stick with medical doctors and away from intoxicants if you have a diagnosed mental illness.

This is a sensible comment. Don't infringe on freedoms but do educate - similarly (though with a different downside) educating people on smoking but still giving them the choice.

ProfMarmoset 6 points

We often infringe on a person's freedom to stop them doing something that harms others (e.g. theft, murder). Some people think animals can suffer and hence it's reasonable and logical to infringe on people's freedoms to stop that from happening.
