To search for a solution would require him to admit that he doesn't know everything

His ego is so massive that he can't admit that therefore he got stuck

And with the amount of people stroking his ego it only becomes worse

Development costs, lack a research into it, and a lack of companies willing to take on that financial risk for a (mostly) untested market

Not to mention the costs of such a device with any kind of feature set other than just a glorified screen

Undeniably there's been some tech developments that could lead in such a direction but there's still some substantial hurdles to clear first

ChatGPT ain't good at moth from what I keep hearing.

For quick short hand for X generations it's been in the family: 30 years per generation is a good short hand.

For example: 1 generation is me (30), 2 generations is my dad(60), 3 generations is grandpa(90), 4 generations is great-grandpa(120), etc.

Lol

Honestly my family's generations are much closer than my example, it's just round numbers in my example for simple math

Mine are closer to 20 and past the last 2, the lower side of 20. And one generation awhile back was... Too close by a good margin of you catch my meaning.

Great great grandpa was an odd duck when I met him but he was a hoot

what happened in Libya

NATO only got involved in Libya after the civil war was in full swing and Gaddafi's regime had been commiting crimes against humanity vs the civilian population where people were showing support for not his regime.

And NATO only went in with the authorization of the UN Security Council, and the left when the Security Council told them to (against the wishes of the newly formed government after the death of Gaddafi)

At the time I started using Google Pay, existing and being from a company I had heard of. Not to mention on Android it was just there for you to use, you didn't have to download another app.

My roommate and I considered using PayPal but his PayPal account got locked and to this day a decade later, never unlocked.

I'm going to be looking into both Venmo and Zelle now though.

A lot of the data in the video file you take isn't that visible but it's there for when you put it in editing software

For example: if you took that lower sized YouTube rip and threw it into editing software to tinker with the brightness (as a simple example) you quickly start getting artifacts whereas the video you took would be able to handle the editing without the artifacts much better as there's more data to work with

Basically the YouTube video has had all the extra data scrapped off that it doesn't need because it's not going to be edited, it's only going to be viewed

By quitting drinking alcohol

Literally the only thing I changed about my life at that time and I went from 185 lbs to 165 lbs in 3 months

I was drinking a fifth per night of alcohol that was at least 100 proof, so I was a bit of an alcoholic at the time

I quit cold turkey and within just a few weeks I started feeling a lot better overall and by about 4 months after I quit the cravings stopped every time I smelt alcohol

I've been sober now for about 5 and a half years and the weight has stayed off the whole time. I've basically been 160±5 lbs since

Gormadt ,
@Gormadt@lemmy.blahaj.zone avatar

Thank you

It wasn't my first attempt but my 4th to get sober. Getting sober wasn't easy, and I think is a topic more people should talk about. You never seem to here people talking about how many attempts it took to achieve something like that, you only ever here that they did it.

And honestly this is the longest I've been sober since I was 12 years old

I wouldn't give it up for the world, the quality of life improvements have been amazing and not just my physical health but my mental health as well. It's amazing how much easier PTSD is to deal with while sober vs not.

After a lot of struggle and multiple failed attempts, I quit drinking

The first attempt I got sober for the sake of someone else but never addressed the cause of my addiction. So when they died I fell off the wagon really fuckin hard. (This was also the only attempt at sobriety where I experienced withdrawal symptoms)

The second attempt I tried to get sober my life had gotten so much worse by that point and I didn't have any idea of healthy coping mechanisms so that one failed after a month.

The third attempt I had addressed some of the issues but I didn't have a healthy friend group that could accept me for being sober. So that attempt failed because I didn't want to lose my friends that I had gained.

The fourth attempt came after my doctor told me I would be dead before 30 of I didn't stop. My current friend group (the one from attempt 3) weren't supportive of my plans to get sober. And even told me to find a new doctor as my was apparently "too stupid". I was beginning to show signs of liver damage pretty bad at that point so I made the call and cut them out of my life.

I got sober for me, I went from a fifth of at least 100 proof alcohol every night to zero. I quit cold turkey.

It was so fucking hard. It was literally months before I no longer had to fight the urge to suck spilt liquor off the floor when I smelt it. It allowed me to face my mental health head on and actually deal with my problems.

And over the years it has only gotten easier to stay sober.

If anyone has any questions feel free to ask.
