Fav non-podcast memories with the boys?

Does Scott's insistence on limiting engineers on mic feel weird considering how present you are on HH?

I really like the 'Mango' header and icon color when viewing on mobile, and would love to bring that color into the desktop version to add some warmth to the page. I think we need a totally new CSS style to go along with it, though. Something more modern but not CSS-crazy, just something similar to a cleaner looking default CSS.

I actually really like how it looks so far.

What other kind of CSS style changes are you thinking of?

Idk really, I think I might make a thread asking for users to submit redesigns just to see if anyone comes up with something surprising that I like. I think some warm colors would do us some good though!

Showerthoughts Fall 2017 charity: water campaign!

TL;DR: We've partnered with TheYetee.com to launch a new charity: water campaign!

Get your own Showerthoughts 'charity swag' here!

Donate directly here!

Graphic designers/artists keep reading!


Hey everyone!

Some of you might recall our 2014 charity: water campaign where, with your help, we raised just over $10,000! That was enough to fully fund an entire project, as well as partially fund one other. Our fully funded project, a drilled well for the Mgomo community in Malawi, provided clean drinking water for 243 people who previously had to walk 2 hours to collect unclean drinking water. The second project we helped fund, a well at a Malawian school, gave 415 children clean drinking water, hygiene training, and a hand washing station. Thanks to those who donated, our campaign helped improve the daily lives of 658 people!

663 million people in the world still live without access to clean water. With 5 million different people visiting this silly page every month, we figure that if we have the opportunity to make even the slightest difference in this cause, it would be foolish not to take it. So, with that said, we're launching a new charity: water campaign!

We'll be doing things slightly differently this time around; Instead of being purely donation based like our first campaign, we've partnered with the awesome folks over at TheYetee.com to create Showerthoughts logo-tees, pins, and stickers to sell with 100% of the proceeds going towards our campaign.

Mike from TheYetee worked with us to bring the cost down on each item, up the percentage of each sale that goes to charity, and handle all other associated costs. Shirts are only $20, with $10 of each sale going directly to charity... and worry not, my fellow tall people - we made sure to have something you can wear too, as currently the red and royal blue tees come in tall sizes!

Everyone at TheYetee has been so helpful and supportive and we're super excited to be partnered with them!

Limited Monthly Tees

As TheYetee specializes in daily shirts showcasing artwork from amazing independent artists, we thought it'd be a mistake not to take full advantage of that! We would like to offer monthly special limited-batch tees designed by our community. If you're an artist/graphic designer and would like to re-imagine our logo for use on a t-shirt, please send your designs to rshowerthoughts@gmail.com. Of course we will give appropriate credit to you on the store page, subreddit, and social media if selected!

Not interested in Showerthoughts swag but still want to donate to old-fashioned way?

No worries! Just click here to go to our campaign page and you can donate as much or as little as you'd like. Any amount helps, and if you can't donate but still wish to support the cause, you can do so by sharing this post on social media or creating a campaign of your own!

Why charity: water?

We’ve chosen charity: water, a “non-profit organization on a mission to bring clean and safe drinking water to every person on the planet.“ So far, charity: water has funded 24,537 water projects for 7 million people in 24 countries all around the world - using 100% of received donations. Here’s a link to their website, I’d encourage everyone to see what the organization stands for and how they operate. For those who are curious as to how reputable the organization is - feel free to take a look at the following third-party reviews: 1, 2.

How long will this go on for?

charity: water limits each campaign quarterly, so while this campaign page will expire December 31st this year, we will likely create another campaign page for the following Winter, Spring, Summer, etc. This is all subject to change, but that's the current plan!

[Pics] M/26/6'7 [365lbs > 220lbs = 145lbs] - An overdue 'Thank You' to the r/Keto community.

Before/After album

I started my weight loss journey in July 2015 after discovering this subreddit. The results I saw from every post here seemed too good to be true, and after spending a bit more time on this subreddit I was convinced I needed to give this diet an honestly try. My hightest weight was 365lbs, though when I started Keto I was around 355lbs, and within 12 months I had lost about 135lbs. r/Keto has completley changed my life and i owe each and everyone one of you my complete thanks. This diet has given me a life I had only ever dreamed of, and I have this subreddit to thank.

I reached my (current) lowest weight last September but was too afraid to share my progress because of some self-image (and other) issues I have since worked on overcoming. While making this post is still completely terrifying for me, I decided that I owed a debt to this community: your progress pics led to me beginning my journey. If me sharing mine lead to someone else beginning a journey of their own, then this will have been entirely worth it.

So again, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.

GJ, with what kind of recipes did you started Keto? Breakfast/Lunch/Meal ?

Original Poster2 points · 1 year ago

When I started I was really strict, but I haven't been as strict on myself in a long while so it's a little tough to remember all the things i used to eat. I would eat things like bacon/eggs/cheese for breakfast, mozzarella with sun dried tomatoes (just a few) and kalamata olives for lunch, and dinner could be steak or lettuce tacos or sausage or breadcrumb-free eggplant parm (basically just grilled eggplant with browned cheese on top). Any combo of those foods in various proportions. Snacks were cheese, nuts, olives. I'm a picky eater so I ate a lot of the same things throughout the week.

Wow. Just incredible! No excess skin or anything?

A little bit on my chest and gut, mostly noticeable when I lean forward without a shirt on but it's not a big deal. I kind of always have this slight muffin top thing where my pants begin but that's also not a super big deal.

Computer has been running extremely slowly for past few weeks. Unsure how to diagnose the issue.

Symptoms:

  • FPS in game dropped to 40fps average (going as low as 15-20fps intermittently), whereas FPS in same game used to average 100-150 FPS

  • Using any application is slow. Slow to boot, slow running, just slow. There seems to be a delay when clicking through programs, as if I have to wait for the computer to catch up to what I want it to do. YouTube videos play without issue, though navigating YouTube has the same issues described above. Typing and scrolling on already-loaded pages is smooth and without issue.

  • Skype calls will freeze for a few moments every 40-80 seconds, then play a bit of catch-up where I will see a slightly fast-forwarded recap of the video/audio feed (though sometimes I don't see all of it).

  • Listening to Spotify (and probably while watching videos, though I've only really noticed while listening to music) there will occasionally be an audio glitch where the song will catch for less than a second, sounding like a sharp buzzing noise, before resuming normal play.

Info/Specs:

Windows 10 Pro; Intel (R) Core(TM) i5-6600K CPU @ 3.50GHz 3.50 GHz; Installed memory (RAM): 16.0 GB.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580

MSI Z170A Gaming M5 Motherboard

OS installed to 240 GB SSD with 80GB free space

I built my machine in 2011, though I replaced my processor/motherboard/ram in November 2015. The only current parts dating back to 2011 are the GPU and Power Supply.

Troubleshooting:

  • I ran a Windows Memory Diagnostic to check my RAM but found no issues.

  • I followed all steps listed in the current 'Anti Malware' sticky on this subreddit, which did reveal several potential malware threats that I subsequently removed.

  • The problem persists using all browsers, though I did clear the cache/cookies to see if that would work but saw little to no change, obviously since this issue is not exclusive to web browsers.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated! If there is any other pertinent information I need to share to best get help please let me know. I'm not the most knowledgeable when it comes to computer hardware so bare with me if I ask overly simplistic questions. Thanks!

Check all your temps, you may be overheating. Also check with various softwares and check if the board is got to the touch.

Board is not hot to the touch, and these are my temperature readings: http://i.imgur.com/e28cRc9.jpg

Nothing seems to be running hot, though I'm not the most well versed in what parts should be running at what temperatures.

Your temps look fine, and the high temp on the board is mostly likely a false reading (although that's not 100%). Try to see if your board has a little switch (usually red) labeled "slow mode", some boards have that. Other than that I don't know what's up except maybe a component is dying. Get CrystalDiscInfo and see the health of your drive.

Original Poster1 point · 1 year ago

This is my CrystalDiskInfo reading, which seems fine?

I think we may have landed on the issue however, since you mentioned the "slow mode" switch. Apparently there are a number of people with my MSI Z170A Gaming M5 Motherboard that have had my exact issue with this slow mode throttling their CPU to 800 MHz, and reopening CPUID HWMonitor shows that all of my processor clocks are sitting at that 800 mark. You can see a video of someone talking about it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uv4vlMnm-7M

I booted down my machine, flipped the switch from the left over to the right, rebooted, and much to my disappointment - my computer is still slow, and my processor is still being capped at 800 MHz. I'm not sure how to fix this, but at least it seems like this is the cause of my slowdown.

Rule reversal - please read.

Hi there. So a little while back we made this post, which temporarily banned images from r/cringe and caused the creation of r/cringepics. In that post I stated:

I'll give it a month or so and see how things go with this new rule, and at the end of it I'll reconsider allowing images.

Having given it a few months or so, 38 months specifically, we believe we finally have enough data and user feedback to make the final decision... that we will be reversing our "no images" policy.

Thank you for being so patient and participating in our trial period. We hope this shows how much we truly value your input, input like...

Find something better to do than ruin this subreddit dickwad. You mods don't do shit here anyway so why the hell do you care what people do? If people enjoy the content then let it be. No one gives a shit about your jusification. The large majority of people want pics to stay

and

Just roll it back and save yourself the headache. I know you have better things to do with yourself than fighting your userbase.

and

I disagree, I doubt /r/cringepics wil catch on, and I like seeing all my cringe in one place!

and

This is so stupid. You're dumb. You don't know shit about governing.

and

there is a subreddit called /r/shittyideas that seems to really need some work. You'd fit right in!

and

i herd you like dressing up like a pink faggot pony

and

The large majority of the community certainly seems to dislike this. Doubt you're going to have any success.

and

Just submit nothing but images for a few days. If the moderators really want to be strong fisted, let them have an empty subreddit that will eventually die.

and

FUCK YOU!

and

Drumcowski fucking blows. I don't need you to tell me what I'm about to see. "Repost" "not cringeworthy" "seal of approval". Seriously... Get over yourself. Stop substituting your views for the voting system and simply fuck off.

and

the mods will never be able to own up to making a mistake, and this decision will never be reversed even after /r/cringepics shows no signs of taking off.

...and helps rebuild any faith you may have lost in the process.

I tried to force r/cringepics, and now it's time to face the music: at just 699k subscribers, it's clear that we failed miserably.

With the dust finally settled, I owe you each an apology for making such a hasty and foolish decision. As of today we have effectively archived r/cringepics, meaning the subreddit will be browseable but no new posts will be allowed. All r/cringepics content should now be posted to r/cringe.

Finally, all the cringe is back in one place.

Thank you all! If you have any questions/comments/concerns, feel free to leave them below!

We are very happy to finally announce that r/Showerthoughts will be merging with r/im14andthisisdeep! Details inside.

Hi there! As the title says, we're very excited to be able to finally announce a subreddit merger that has been in the works for quite some time now.

r/Showerthoughts (us) will be merging with r/im14andthisisdeep

"Wait, those are two different subreddits??"

Yes, believe it or not r/Showerthoughts is in fact not the same subreddit as r/im14andthisisdeep... until today, that is!

"What does this mean?"

What this means is, that this subreddit, being the larger of the two, will remain intact but go through a slight re-branding process. All changes will simply be to the aesthetics of the subreddit, nothing more.

"What will I need to do or change after the merger is finally complete?"

Absolutely nothing! The best part about this is that you won't have to do a thing besides what you've already been doing! You won't have to change a single thing.

We'll be sharing more details in the coming days as we get closer to reaching a full subreddit transition.

In the mean time... get back out there, channel your inner Jaden, and post away!

I've removed the link on account of the graphic nature of the content, considering the age of the victim. A news article without the images would be sufficiently rageworthy enough, so feel free to submit this story using a less graphic news source.

So, what's the point of adding more mods, if the sub doesn't have any real rules, won't ban the shitposts about Trump, and the sub doesn't seem to need any more moderating.

see more
Original Poster3 points · 1 year ago

Posts about politics are fine, trolling shitposts can go. There's a difference... I think. This sub isn't meant to really be moderated, it's just a place to dump your predictions so you can point back to it and be like "SEE I CALLED THAT SH*T!!!" to your friends who don't even care. Mods can just help make sure spam gets marked as such and trolls taking the piss get removed. Pretty simple.

There's like 5 post a day 4/5 are about politics. I'm getting sick of seeing literally only Trump posts on this subreddit. There should be a way to control the politics posts. Like the other guy suggest, we could have a day where politics are allowed but any other day they aren't allowed.

A politics megathread is a totally reasonable idea, and something we'll probably do. Thanks for the reminder!
