#6 Emotions, focus & meditation in Off Topic

I meditate, somewhat frequently. Importantly, I don't have to "sit still for 20 minutes" to get the benefits. If I'm in line, or at a red light, or walking somewhere on autopilot, I can switch that to a mindfulness exercise in the minute or less that I have to engage it.

The benefits are incredible. I'm a person who I'd describe is "on-edge" way more than not. Since starting meditation a few months ago, I've noticed I don't get worked up over things that used to heavily affect me. It definitely comes down to both a conscious and an unconscious control of emotions. For one, I know I don't need to be worked up, and for two, I can decide to not be (as far as two aspects of conscious control go).

I also listen more. I "slowed down" my internal clock and pace, such that things can impact me more easily, be they words, or situations.

I'm also literate in neuroscience and the primary research on meditation. I don't just "believe" in it, or anything in that matter. I'm not saying I'm immune to placebo, but this is way too strong and persistent to be a result of placebo.

All in all, I most definitely suggest you try meditating. I've had a more-than-extraordinarily-positive experience with Headspace, an app for iOS and Android. They made it well, I won't go into detail for all the reasons I think they have, but I've covered the bases on routes towards somewhat effortless meditation, and this is grade A as far as guided meditations and a wholesome approach to it go.

Best of luck. Feel free to PM me or add me on Steam to talk more about this. I'm a beginner. I don't even get 5 seconds of quiet. You don't need to be an advanced meditator to reap benefits, and I can see it as resoundingly true within myself.

Start by sitting for 5 minutes, eyes closed. Just breathe. Don't expect anything too much of yourself. You'll be surprised how much that'll do for you in a week. That's 35 minutes total. Just do it.

#349 Watch: College Kids idea of identity in The Dumpster
eeefahrenheit
I believe sex is a biological construct based on for example your sex chromosomes and gender to be a social construct based on traits that we deem to either be masculine or feminine.
^p much. The actual underlying causes of gender dysphoria aren't even close to being understood. We have rough overarching ideas and clues with the ways people's brains structure and hormone levels, but even those are kind of shallow. Using gender to mean biological sex is p pointless since the word sex works fine, using it to refer to which of the two most overarching social groups you fit in is a lot better.

people who say "lol just boys dressing up" or "Should society accept" them are really trivializing a very complex psychological and possibly biological issue

this post hits the nail on the head
social vs biological constructs are very real, and worlds apart

and it is important to respect those around you when handling their identity
because it is theirs and only theirs to choose

#42 A glaring issue with projectile hitboxes in TF2 General Discussion
ma basic understanding of the situation and critical thinking skills

im sure u hit ur power button on ur alienware and connect to the internet and assume theres magic data fairies making sure all the packets get to the right place at the right time

I guess I simply don't know enough about the subject. My basic understanding sees "stair prop" that has jagged edges, and changes the prop's box or whatever to be a ramp or inclined plane, whatever the need.

I understand it goes past that. I understand TF2's explosions already behave strangely on sloped surfaces that aren't jagged at all.

But no, I'm not data-fairies level.

#37 A glaring issue with projectile hitboxes in TF2 General Discussion
sopsI'm more worried about rockets going inside of slight cracks and doing zero damage as a result...

Honestly, how hard is it to make everything behave as the best possible scenario?
Stairs being a simple ramp in the eyes of projectiles/explosions.
Hitboxes being cylinders scaled to the actual size of the mercenary.
am I missing anything?

#2 I am looking feed back on my unfinished fps guide in Off Topic

I like it, I just really wish you'd clarify why you're doing certain things. Like the msconfig part
Also, you should try cleaning it up. Each section can have a numbered list, just for ease of use.

Ratatat is downright my favorite band. I will show Ratatat to my children.

Their new song, Abrasive, has become my anthem.
