I've been married over 10 years and can confirm /u/Im_Bee knows what they're talking about.

I recommend checking out the book the 5 love languages.

You may not feel like showing love, but she doesn't either. One of you has to start. It's not about who's fault it is, it's about the path you choose to take going forward.

Love isn't that butterfly feeling you got when you were a teenager. Love is a choice, and love is work. Love is sacrificing yourself everyday for their benefit.

u/l80 · 114 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Yes! I can't stress this enough. After dealing with shitty cheap printers (with absurdly priced ink cartridges that would print only three pages including one that was a 'test' comprising of an advertisement for itself), I finally realized that an $99 laser printer is a deal (I like one with auto duplexing - which means it prints both sides of a page. Automatically). Especially when you can buy a high capacity toner cartridge.

Listen people, I'm writing a book. I print out hundreds of pages in drafts and ideas and crap in addition to normal printer stuff. I bought my laser printer (B/W) over a year ago. I replaced the toner once (the included one with a high capacity one).

It just fucking works. Sometimes, I put a plate on top of it and probably spill some crumbs up in there.

New printer don't care. New printer don't give a fuck. New printer just prints whenever I ask it to.

Edit: I'm semi-convinced that I read somewhere it's NOT ok to promote products or brands on reddit. So for those who really want to know, please PM me and I will link you. Also, if someone can refute my strong conviction that this is against some rule I at some point read, please do. For everyone else who has responded, I will PM you. :)

Second edit: updating price - I misremembered what I initially paid. I thought I paid $80, it was actually $99.

Third edit: One person reassured me there is no rule against this, so hopefully they are correct. I got the brother HL-2270DW. It stacks up well against other products / brands, it's pretty easy to set up and network (wireless is nice!) and the auto duplexing is a HUGE bonus. Also, it's still reasonably priced on amazon. I don't give a fuck that it isn't color. Don't need it to be.

The high yield toner cartridge is also a great buy.

Edit four: Found the HP Inkology videos. on Amazon. This is what ultimately enraged me enough to buy a laser printer in the first place. It's also hilarious. Enjoy!

u/apullin · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

I really don't know what you mean. Well, actually, I do, but more on that later.

There is a fair amount to know to do laundry well. Put the detergent into the bottom, which cycles to use for what, cold vs warm vs hot, soaking and pre-treating, tying up sheets (or bagging them now that I have a mesh bag), being diligent about checking pockets, separating colors, how and when to add bleach for whites, "bleach for colors", and so on. Then on the drying side, you have to learn to estimate times, get the lint trap at regular intervals, separate large items, be very careful with the heat, listen for problems like loose pocket items that you missed in the washing cycle, and then all the good tricks for quickly folding stuff as it comes out, so the putting-away isn't so much of a product itself.

Then, overall, just timing and process flow, how to stage several loads of laundry, not overloading the machine. Since laundry itself has some time overhead since the machine has to actually do the washing and drying, and the chore is usually a 1-hour session, it took several iterations to get the whole thing down. So, there is some stuff to know, and iteration is entirely common to any learning process.

But you're not really talking about laundry at all. You are just trying to feel superior, to increase your self esteem. I'd like to recommend this book to you. It is a short, cheap, easy read, but it is wonderfully insightful to a problem that exists in droves in the modern world. If you aren't willing to buy it, I can send you an ebook copy, or just buy you a physical copy.

This is a brilliant scam on the part of Gillette. Those cartridges will cost you thousands of dollars over the course of your life, but they send you the razor when you turn 18 and get you hooked.

Do yourself a HUGE favor and buy a good DE razor and a blade sample pack. You'll get a closer shave and save a bundle of money.

Basic starter kits (you might want to go for a better razor?):

u/Nerobus · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

I highly suggest this. Holly shit this thing is a lifesaver. Worth every penny.

As for fur, dogs shed too, but it helps with both species if you brush them daily... get the fur onto a brush rather then all over the house. I use this thing works pretty good, but I'm betting there are other ones on the market that work better.

Hope this helps!

u/savemejebus0 · 110 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

I can tell you from being an addict who was inches from death, your food addiction a in the same part of the brain as my drinking and I can tell you that I know exactly how you feel. Here is the hardest part for you to accept, and believe me, people around you will argue against it, most of how you got here was out of your control.

You most likely have issues in your brain. Because our "free will" and "you" exists in the brain, people like to conflate the two and associate malfunctions in the reward system to a lack of will power or personal responsibility. The very thing you make your choices with, your brain, is compromised.

I know something that has helped me, no wait, saved my life, and I just recently stumbled upon a book about it, exercise. Before you dismiss it and categorize yourself as someone who doesn't, or can't, exercise, read this book cover to cover. Get the audio book, listen to it on your down time.

If it is not the solution to your problems, I can guarantee you, it is the start to them. Do you want evidence? Read the book. Do you want research? Read the book. Do you want hope? Read the book.

You have to understand that you are fighting against the reward system in your brain. It will tell you things you have to ignore. I recommend exercise not because you mentioned overeating, but because you mentioned depression. The transformation in your body will just be an added bonus.

Of course, we don't all have the means, but therapy is #1. They will help you stay on course. When that malfunctioning part of your brain tells you one thing, your therapist will convinces you that it is a ruse fabricated by an imbalance of neurotransmitters. If you cannot afford one, it is up to you.

Every day. Commit to intense exercise every day. Zero excuse to miss. Not for your weight, for your brain. It is not the magic cure, but it is close. Good luck.

On a more serious note, there are a lot of sociopath in the U.S (5% by some estimates, that's 1 in 20 people) and they can be very deceiving and dangerous people, they are usually charming but have no ability to feel empathy and will do anything to get what they want. I'm not saying your cousin is one but people need to be more aware and protect themselves. Here is a really good book and an amazing read about the topic as told by a psychiatrists that has treated several sociopath and she tells their story, as well as warn people about it. Link to book:

TLDR: It is estimated 1 in 20 Americans are sociopaths and they can be EXTREMELY dangerous, please inform yourself and loved ones.

u/burritosan · 15 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

There's this popular book called The 5 Love Languages that seems relevant to the issue you're talking about. I haven't actually read the book myself, but from what my therapist was saying the idea is that people sort of have preferred channels for demonstrating and receiving "love." On an intuitive level it sort of makes sense, and it explains a lot of the issues I've had in the past with a couple of my exes.

The fives languages are as follows:

  • Words of Affirmation
  • Acts of Service
  • Affection
  • Quality Time
  • Gifts

    For me it's mostly about quality time, then a tie between words of affirmation and affection, then acts of service, and then gifts (which hardly registers at all). You can take the official test to see how your languages are distributed. I don't usually buy into things like this, but it definitely helped explain a lot to me (although I should probably read the actual book).
u/wuot · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

This is completely false. I used to believe that, until I spent some of my free time casually studying nutrition (specifically the effects of carbohydrates on the body).

Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body's cells become insulin resistant due to excessive amounts of insulin being present (usually caused by excess sugar & carbohydrate intake). The pancreas has to make more and more insulin to achieve the same effect (directing cells to take in glucose in order to remove it from the bloodstream, which must happen because excess blood sugar is, as we know, highly toxic), and eventually it cannot create enough - you now have type 2 diabetes. It is not caused by stored fat.

Additionally, contrary to Reddit's popular belief, storing fat is not simply caused by an excessive intake of calories. Fat storage is primarily regulated by the hormone insulin, and since type 2 diabetics have had a huge excess of insulin for a long period, diabetes and obesity are very often (but not always*) seen together. Is it any wonder the belief that fat causes diabetes sprung up?

If you'd like to know more, a great starting point is the book "Why We Get Fat: And What To Do About It

> If your burning the calories, eat away, you can't wear our your pancreas. That's a myth that needs to die.

PLEASE do some proper research before you perpetuate bullshit like this to people who may believe things they hear on the internet. You certainly can wear out your pancreas, several people in my family have done just that with a lifetime of sugar and processed carbohydrates (two of them being extremely "fit" looking, working out frequently and playing sports/generally being active.

u/TheSandwichKing · 10 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

As someone who is constantly on the road and also a full-blow fan-while-I-sleep addict I have to recommend the Marpac Dohm-DS.

It's "real" white noise caused by the movement of air, but can be packed extremely easily. Trust me, it saved my life and marriage.

u/PattonPending · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

We're expecting them to be easy to put through conditioning and be turned into the most effective fighters, developing good combat reflexes and executing orders under stress. The officers and NCOs leading these kids tend to at least be in their mid twenties.

The logic is you take the most effective age group and make them the most effective fighters and that way you minimize casualties.
This book is a good read and covers a lot of the psychology of it.

u/Pargethor · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

HEY! do some research, take the proper steps and it can be an excellent option. Investing about $30-$50 in a decent transmitter will do you a lot of good. I have had this one for at least a year now and haven't a single issue. There are a couple models that might be better, mine is kind of outdated. If possible, disconnect your radio antenna if you don't ever plan on listening to the radio (such is my case).

Find an obscure channel to broadcast on (the transmitter should find one good enough) and it should come through crystal clear. I have an outlet in my console that the transmitter is in, set to the channel, and my radio never changes stations, so I every time I get in my car my phone wirelessly connects to the transmitter and Spotify begins playing. Haven't listened to the radio in ages, and it's wonderful. I never touch the thing but it has some pretty cool call features too.

Edit. I live near Detroit and there are plenty of stations around that give me no problems.

u/igetbooored · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

If you are just looking to dip your toe into the waters then pick up this guy from Amazon for $2. It will get to your house in about two weeks since it ships from hong kong. During that two weeks hit a local walmart or other appropriate store and pick up a pack of 10 safety razor blades also for less than $2.

Use some Barbasol if you don't have a shaving cream preference (you said beginner!) and go very slowly your first shave or two. As you learn the direction that your beard (or other assorted body hair) grows it will become easier to get cleaner shaves with less passes and less irritation, maybe a month tops.

If you don't like it, then using this method you're out less than $10.

Edit: I recommend the cheap Wilkinson Sword type razor blades to start. Once you get the hang of it pick up some Feather blades off of Amazon if your local stores don't sell them. Don't start with Feathers though you might knick your head off.

u/hydrottie · 4 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

OK I totally forgot about these. It hooks into your fm antennae input. Pretty easy if you can do basic mods like drilling a hole for the switch. .. I suggest running it to your aux switch slots that most trucks have. Take pics of the interior if i don't make sense

This is actually the optimal way to drive. Every bit of road should be used. You may seem like an asshole if you're the only one doing it but ideally everyone would do it. It leads to better traffic flow. Source is somewhere in here:

My DVD sets that I bought around the time episode 3 came out have the original theatrical version included. (I watched them all when I was getting excited for episode VII) the quality was pretty bad but it was definitely the original cut.

Edit: found them on Amazon if anyone is curious.

u/mattintaiwan · 6 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Jeez you guys are lazy. Just go to Amazon and type "bidet" ha.

Having said that, this is the one that I bought. It works perfectly and is one of the best purchases I've ever made.

u/Heatmonger · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

If you can stream from a smartphone with Bluetooth, some of the Bluetooth FM transmitters are actually quite good. There typically isn't all the noise and static, maybe due to the lack of a wired connection.

something like

Make sure to download a sound equalizer app and adjust to your liking as well, it can make a world of difference.

u/Burnt_Couch · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

I've got this one, it works great. I have to occasionally change the station I pick it up on when I travel long distances but it transmits great sound quality I think.

u/spitfireM21 · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

So I'm kind of lost. I own Episodes IV, V, and VI on DVD, and all three came with a second bonus disc that have the original theatrical versions on them. I don't know whether or not they're remastered, but I wouldn't complain about the quality, they're just as good looking as I'd expect from any DVD. Everyone seems to go on about how they can't be purchased except on laserdisc or VHS, but that simply isn't true. I got these at Target maybe three years ago, and they're completely legit. Turned in my old special edition trilogy to a used store and bought all three again to have both versions. Are they somehow different than the originals?

Good for you :) I'm at 6 weeks myself. I know it sounds like bs, but I would recommend Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking.

u/TabMuncher2015 · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

I was mainly pointing out that measuring by weight is far more accurate than volume regardless of unit. Of course for some things like water or butter volume is fine. But for flour, sugar, and irregular things like chocolate chips/fruit weight is much preferred. Really doesn't matter what the unit is as long as it gets the point across.

Although I admit, as a US baker I have far more utensils with cups/fl oz than ones with milliliters, deciliters or centiliters.

[This is my preferred tool] ( for measuring out ingredients by volume since it has all the major units both metric and US. Also works well for scaling ingredients too! Although I wouldn't pay $10 for it, I think I only paid 4 or 5 for mine.

This is really interesting. Do you have any responses to what Lt. Dave Grossman writes in his book? In case you haven't read it, you can pop in to a book store and catch the first couple chapters if you like; that's the part I'm referring to. I really would love to hear something from someone who disagrees with him and actually has an experience to back it up instead of an armchair opinion.

u/Dyan654 · 13 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Hey everybody, buy one of these: Amazon (BW Laser)

It is, and I can not stress this enough because I have thought about it quite a lot, the best purchase I have ever made!

For an easy $100 dollars, you will never have an error, paper jam, or even run out of toner, the lazer printers version of ink (for around 4 months). Seriously, I just printed out a printer diagnostic report and after a couple thousand prints I have had 3 errors, all my fault.

Plus, you can flawlessly print wirelessly, double-sided, and incredibly quickly.

Please, if you want to call yourself a redditor, you must own a laser printer.

u/Jb6464 · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

For the first, a wash cloth and some soap (or toilet paper, water and soap if out and about).

For the latter, try this. Hands-down one of the best purchases I've ever made. It's like being having-taken-a-shower clean every time I drop a deuce (or if I just need a quick refresh on those hot summer days).

u/bruinblue25 · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

I was a smoker for fourteen years. Quit smoking after reading this book. Good luck and congratulations!

u/RedTib · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

Install an FM modulator

The difference is that the direct input bypasses your antenna and plays your music on a certain frequency. In an FM transmitter, the transmitters uses the antenna.

In my experience, the sound quality is very excellent.

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

Yes you can. Unless your body is magically in sync with the earths rotation, you can certainly sleep whatever schedule you like. Get good curtains to block out the sun. If you need, get earplugs or a sound conditioner:

and go to bed early, and get up early. You can easily change your schedule. It will suck for a few days, but it is easy to do.

u/TheDiceToss · 8 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

I believe it varies, based both on personal preference & the type of bidet you are using. My wife & I use a model that just attaches onto the bowl itself ( I spray without wiping, then dab with toilet paper: both to dry & to make sure I'm truly clean.

u/forever_pdx · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

I read THIS, and it works. I was totally skeptical, but /r/stopsmoking had lots of other people in there saying how great it was. Once you really grasp the concepts laid out (ex: smoking is a drug addiction akin to heroin use) it makes it easier to WANT and to ACTUALLY quit.

u/JDawgSabronas · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Have one of these? 110% recommended; I've convinced half a dozen friends to hop on the bidet train.

u/turbodonk3y · 5 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

This might help him out if he struggles any. I've heard tons of people talk about how this gave them a different outlook on quitting. Congrats to you both!

u/Grindstaff · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

Do yourself a favor and read this

You will see smoking in a new way and you really will wonder why you smoke. The guy who wrote it was a 60 a day man and actually tells you to keep smoking while you read the book.
My only regret is that I didn't read it a long time ago. Go on, give it a try :)

SOURCE: I smoked for over 30 years and stopped after reading 1/3 of this book. No pangs, never went back; feel great.

Allen Carr's Easy Way to Stop Smoking: The Easyway To Stop Smoking I quit the day I finished reading and haven't even wanted one since. Other than the day I hung out with old friends I hadn't seen in years and we spent the night drinking, I had about 5 that night, I have been smoke free.

u/ravennaMorgan · 35 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

Yep, the book Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do does a good job explaining this. Regardless of whether you feel it's fair to merge at the end it is faster for everyone and when people try to block people from merging or merge way early it creates backups that can echo for miles.

u/therealswimshady · 0 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

I think you want this. Hardwired to your car, you just connect power and ground and whatever antenna adapters you need for your specific vehicle. Get a red/white to 3.5 mm cable and you're golden. Turn it on and tune your radio to whatever frequency you select on the unit (I think there's only 2). I've installed a few for the exact purpose you state and they work pretty well.

Try shaving with a DE Razor - This video randomly stumbled upon convinced me to make the switch.

$3 for a starter shaver

20 blades (40 actually because they're double edged) for $7.00

Both are free shipping. Just need to get a brush and shave soap at the corner store. No razor burn and the experience of shaving becomes somewhat therapeutic.

u/DeadZeplin · 1 pointr/AdviceAnimals

That's why I love modulators:

Well fat is the most calorie-dense food at 9 kcal per gram. Carbs and protein are 4 each, alcohol is 7. According to my shitty calculations which are probably off, 3500 calories (kcal) of fat would be 389g or 13.7 oz, just under a pound of pure fat.

As for gaining/losing weight, that gets more complicated. Calories in/calories out is a major factor but you have to consider how your body processes carbs, protein, and fat. They are not all equal. Look at low carb diets, /r/keto, etc. and you'll see some interesting results.

Read the book Why We Get Fat by Gary Taubes for a really interesting discussion that doesn't try to sell you on a fad diet. There are definitely some controversial conclusions though, he tries to push the metabolism of fat vs. carbs > calories in/calories out which is probably wrong but there is still some solid information in there.

I lost 20 pounds over 3 months doing a fairly strict low carb diet. We're talking eggs & bacon for breakfast, chicken breast salad with avocado, black olives, full fat bleu cheese dressing and bacon bits for lunch, and a bacon cheeseburger with no bun and zucchini for dinner. Or a steak. It's a delicious diet but hard to sustain.

They make hard wired fm transmitters that are for people like yourself. Goes in line with the antenna and you plug it into your phone (or bluetooth). Like this It physically cuts out the antenna and directly connects your phone with a flip of a switch. You just need two Volvo antenna adapters.

When it's off, it's off completely. No dripping. I advise not doing what I did when we first got it, which is turning it on without actually being seated on the toilet.

Yeah, I got a Brother Printer a few years ago. It was slightly more expensive than a comparable inkjet, but I was able to use the sample toner that was included with the printer for over a year and a half.

Here ya go

Now, this isn't a full on seperate one, it hooks up to your standard toilet.

Only peasants use toilet paper, nobles use bidet. Be one of us OP.

the less you are driving the less chance you will be in a car accident, so cutting in at the last minute reduces your chance of dying.

I read this brilliant book about trafffic

Or something.

Get a diaper pail? If I felt like my bathroom smelling like shit, or using an excess amount of seal-able plastic bags to put my shit rags in, I'd just buy a bidet, or a fucking bidet attachment for 30 bucks.. Here's a review.

36 bucks. Amazon. Changed my life, and i'm a hairy dude. Spray it down, drip dry while reading reddit or use TP to dry it and get anything left and we're done.

Edit: Shit, if money is that tight for you and it'll make that big of a difference in your quality of life, i'll buy the fucking thing for you.

Not just Arabs: you have to be trained to kill. To minimize the psychological hesitation in the moment. To put rounds on target (on people) instead of just in the vague direction of people. Turns out humans just don't like to kill other humans (or at least at scale).

Some books a Marine recommended to me once: On Killing and Training for the Fight. There are criticisms of both books but it is a continuing field of study.

Buy a bidet add on for your toilet from Amazon for less than $40. Just connects to your water supply and comes with a T-joint that allows your tank to fill as well. It has literally changed my life. Shit after the shower? No problem. Just wash that shit away and dry off. One of the best items I've ever purchased.

4.5 stars with over 850 reviews. DO IT!

I was in the same situation. I got this a few years ago and have had no problems with it. Every once in a while you need to find a more clear radio station but it does a decent job of over powering a crappy signal.

A bidet? You can buy one here. I have one myself.

Think of it this way, if you got shit on any part of your body would you be comfortable with just wiping it off with paper? No? Then why do you do that on your ass?
