  1. I doubt that would stay confidential, and the boss or HR might take offense. It would be a gamble, I think.
  2. Don't worry about it. Never gonna happen for you or me anymore.
  3. I've dated crazy. It's exciting until it really isn't.
  4. True. Sometimes I use trazodone in small doses based on your experience.
  5. For some people trazodone also potently blocks psychedelic effects (undoubtedly via 5ht-2a) Here's a trazodone story from a mushroom thread. I assume he took far more than Construct's micro dose. Enjoy...
  6. Robots failed for Tesla and now Boeing. Humans are re-introduced to the factory. "... the planemaker struggled to keep the robots moving in sync on the outside and inside of the fuselage panels, creating production snarls..." https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-11-13/boeing-s-humans-step-in-after-robots-fumble-assembly-of-777-jets
  7. BWT, calling me a "Pint Of Marijuana" : a) is uncouth b) makes no sense c) is likely to be misunderstood by someone with less attunement to modern culture than I possess
  8. Much appreciated. Now that mwarren is taking a sabbatical, the number of three letter acronyms on this board has reduced almost to a manageable level..
  9. Do you mean ROM? So, use mostly free weights? The guy in this video repeatedly refers to restricted ROM as the problem... video below starts with Mr. Smith's machine
  10. My local gym replaced the stand-alone shoulder press and sitting bench press machines with a Smith machine. Why is that a good idea?
  11. Slow Wave Sleep reduces anxiety "Deep sleep had restored the brain's prefrontal mechanism that regulates our emotions, lowering emotional and physiological reactivity and preventing the escalation of anxiety," On a societal level, “the findings suggest that the decimation of sleep throughout most industrialized nations and the marked escalation in anxiety disorders in these same countries is perhaps not coincidental, but causally related,” Walker said. “The best bridge between despair and hope is a good night of sleep. https://news.berkeley.edu/2019/11/04/deep-sleep-can-rewire-the-anxious-brain/
  12. I'm somewhat intrigued by this study https://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2019-11/bcom-dnn110419.php One innovation is to use a "mesoscope" to measure the activity of a large number of neurons simultaneously. This is the kind of development I've been waiting for. https://bmcbiol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/s12915-017-0426-y First, measure the activity of neuron populations in response to thousands of images. Then develop an artificial neural net to mimic that neural activity. Then, give the artificial neural net new images, and see how its simulated neurons respond. Compare the simulated output to how brains respond to those same images. "To test whether the network had indeed learned to predict neural responses to visual images like a living mouse brain would do, we showed the network images it had not seen during learning and saw that it predicted the biological neuronal responses with high accuracy," If the method continues to work with other brain data, this could accelerate both AI and brain modeling. (Whether this leads to good or evil is another question)
