#61 Formers smokers in Off Topic
ukmhelps if you have a goal or reason for not smoking that will keep you motivated

if you just have a vague sense of "this is bad for me so i shouldn't do it" it will be tough cause cravings are a stronger, more immediate motivation

you'll be more successful if you have an objective like "I want to run a 5k 3 months from now"

^This is very true
My grandmother died of lung cancer, I kept smoking until one morning after a heavy night of drinking and smoking I hacked up something bloody, and said ok enough of this.
What I consider first hand experience of "being bad for me" was an immediate motivation for myself, however second hand motivation wasn't enough (grandmother as an example)

This is just me, personally, and every person is different and sees the world differently, so just do the best you can at CANEI.


And yea, that whole after dinner cigarette sounds horrible and disgusting now. I don't get why I ever liked it.

Do not be too hard on yourself, but the only thing that you need to quit is discipline.

If you tend to hang out with other smokers and are tempted seeing them smoke, don't smoke a whole cigarette, rather, ask for a drag or 2 and then give it back. This will help you scratch that itch for nicotine, but without getting enough to cause more addiction. If that ever becomes "I just wont buy a pack, but I'll bum one," not only will your friends not like you, but you might as well buy a pack and go back to smoking if you find yourself with this mentality because you will lose friends for being an ass and stealing cigarettes. Yes, lying to your friends (and yourself) that you are quitting in order to coerce them to give you cigarettes is stealing.

Drinking alcohol can cause you to smoke more than you realize, and you will wake up the next day re-addicted. If you find yourself unable to drink without smoking, don't drink.

Hey Guys, Durban Here- The sculptures for sale can be customized with any hats/accessories you might want. They are handmade with love, and priced so low, I'm practically giving away my work. I normally charge at least $300 for pieces like the ones you can see here:
Chocolate Toys

Because I will be shipping them to you, I can't do them out of chocolate, but that also means they will last pretty much forever on display in your home. GL!

#22 A complete noob to this game and enjoying it in Videos

dont know if it was mentioned but as a scout you can double jump. just press space while in the air.
i dont think i saw you double jump once in the video, so sorry if you already know. also if you crouch right after you jump you raise up the feet of your model and can jump over higher obstacles.

#918 MAJOR TF2 update for 6/18/14 (6/19/14, Love & War) in TF2 General Discussion

While many millions are enjoying the drama of the World Cup, a handful of scientists are keeping their eyes very closely on the ball.

The World Cup ball, known as , has been the subject of intense and careful study, especially following the erratic performance of its predecessor in the 2010 championship in South Africa.

It may be surprising to learn that balls can vary at all, but there's some vagueness in the specs, according to , a physicist at Lynchburg College in Virginia.

"The rulebook does not specify how many panels are on the ball or what the shape of the panels will be," he says.

Traditional balls have 32 black and white panels. But in 2006, Adidas, which makes the World Cup balls, started making balls with fewer panels. The ball for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa had just eight. Adidas said the new ball was more state-of-the-art, rounder. But it got off to a wobbly start.

"When the players would try to kick the ball straight ... there would be an erratic knuckling effect that would take place," he says.

Goalies were furious about the ball's unpredictability. One called it a "supermarket" soccer ball.

"Players really started complaining about the ball knuckling, and that's when I started looking at what the differences were," says , an aerospace engineer at NASA's in California.

Ames is home to wind tunnels where researchers test everything from fighter jets to space probes, and soccer balls.

"In a way, it's not very complicated because it is round; it's a sphere," Mehta says.

But the roundness is deceptive. When he studied the 2010 ball, he found the difference in the number of panels had changed the seams between the panels, and that in turn radically altered the ball's behavior.

As air flows around a 2010 World Cup ball, it can snag on a seam. And at just the right speed, that seam acts as a rudder, causing the ball to shift direction suddenly.
"It's basically an unpredictable, erratic flight path, and that, as you can imagine, can give a goalkeeper fits," he says.

Adidas has now changed the design again. This time the company appears to have learned its lesson. Mehta says the new ball has longer, deeper seams that keep it from swerving. He has studied from a Japanese wind tunnel. He also has been carefully watching kicks on television.

"I would be really surprised if players complain about this ball. I think this ball is behaving pretty well, just like the traditional soccer ball they're used to," he says.

So after years of careful research, Adidas is producing a soccer ball that performs as well as a ... traditional soccer ball. Which makes you wonder, why did they change it at all?

Adidas didn't respond to NPR's interview request, but physicist Goff thinks he knows why: "The Brazuca is selling right now for $160 to $170. And Adidas can't get them out fast enough. Frankly, it just makes Adidas a ton of money every four years when they have a new ball that everybody wants to buy," he says.

Both Goff and Mehta agree that you don't need to spend all that money for an aerodynamically state-of-the-art soccer ball. The old one you've got in the garage is just as good.

#443 MAJOR TF2 update for 6/18/14 (6/19/14, Love & War) in TF2 General Discussion

Forget about the demo nerf, its reasonable. My issue with this update is they have given the scout another seemingly viable weapon, and given the sniper another joke of a gun.
Don't get me wrong, I love the idea of a TFC sniper rifle but this one does not get head shots before fully charged! NOT COOL!
If they just made head shots ramp up but still deal more damage than body it would be cool. Also you can't fire a non-charged shot without a delay that is ridiculous, and you lose the charge when you fall.
I want to play in a pug where snipers have to use the classic

#48 buying a car, help! in Off Topic

+1 to buying slightly less than new.
What type of roads will you be driving on and what part of the country are you in? If you live in the north East or up in some mountains, you will see the benefit of AWD when the winter rolls back in, especially if it is anything like this past one. Subaru is my preference, but I've heard good reviews of the Honda CR-V which will get good gas mileage.

VW, BMW, Merc, etc may have comparably high repair costs to a japanese variety, just a heads up
