Animal and pet bodies are generally disposed of via a process that essentially liquifies the flesh in lye. I know that there was some amount of push several years ago to expand the service to human remains.

There's a company in Europe that was trying to push the idea of "planting" a person's body by using minimal preservation chemistry and no coffin, and putting a sapling above the body.

I'm not Tibetan, but even I can appreciate the symbology of their Sky Burials, wherein a body is sliced and left exposed to the elements, and is swiftly reclaimed by vultures.

However, there is one outstanding option for OP: Donating his body to science! Organ donors are lauded, as they well should be, but there's a pressing need for bodies for research purposes, particularly bodies of younger folk or children. The research gained through body donation can save hundreds, if not thousands, of lives, for decades after it's donated. Bodies have been used to research car crash impact effects--dummies are fine, but there really is no substitute for strapping a body into a car and launching it into a wall to see how it breaks (or doesn't!)

I'd strongly encourage anyone interested in alternative body disposal methods to read Stiff, by Mary Roach. It is far and away my favorite non-fiction book--hilarious, respectful, inquisitive, and educational!

i'm the worst for tl;dr's and it's been awhile since i read it anyway so i'd be wary to try to summarize haha, but the book is The Gift of Fear, i think it's like $10 $6.39, apparently! as an ebook on amazon, though i'm sure it can be found easily on libgen for free as well. Gavin de Becker is a security consultant, came up with the protocol to evaluate threats to Supreme Court Justices and whatnot, so figuring out who's actually dangerous and how to de-escalate a situation is really his Thing. book was very interesting IMO and worth reading :) the stuff about firing a potentially dangerous person is towards the end of the book as far as i remember.

[“Junk”] (

I was doing nice things but obviously I’m done with that. I prefer not to burn bridges but if someone else wants to take that route I’m not going to try to put out the flames. I’m not trying to do anything out of malice, I’m just now willing to do anything to legally get my money back consequences to them be damned. They made their bed and they can lie in it. I’m neutral to them now. The emotional part of me that doesn’t listen to reason still cared a bit when I wrote the original post but seeing how she’s treated my friend (OP of this post) has changed that real fast.

If it wasn’t explicitly said that I would get the deposit back at the end of July when the lease ran out it was heavily implied and understood.

The mention of nice things was irrelevant to the legal aspect of the situation, it was just to try to say that this situation isn’t one that I created through my own actions. Not trying to give myself good boy points because they’re meaningless.

They're pretty neat! I personally vastly prefer actual candles but warmers are these little pots or plates like this that you place these little cubes of scented wax on and as they melt they fill the room with the scent. They're pretty popular.

I’m not going to downvote or disagree with that the straps can be heavy on your shoulders, but I will second that you should check out r/abrathatfits. Many women wear bras where the cups are too small but the bands are too big/ loose around the back. The majority of the support should come from the firm band, not the shoulder straps holding them up. I really strongly suggest you check your measurements, because a good, well fitting bra should help ease shoulder pain.

I’ve also got some of these silicone strap cushions that help spread out the weight across the shoulders, and stop them from slipping down if that happens to you. It did to me a lot until I got a better fitting bra.

It is a "Bissel Spotbot Pet" and I love it.

My dog's favorite vomit time is first thing in the morning, so just being able to do a quick wipe with some paper towels, slap the weird carpet device down on the offending spot, press "go", and resume getting ready for work is kind of a lifesaver. It also saved the day when I spilled an entire bright red soda on our brand new light gray couch.

Several years ago, I used to use this portable door lock as a backup in my apartment, since I wasn't allowed to install an additional real lock on top of the wimpy one that came with the door. I don't have children (this is designed specifically to keep kids from escaping), but I lived with someone who was particularly phobic/terrified of home invasions and it made him feel better. The mechanism is nearly identical to the sort of thing you see on a crock pot or fancy food storage containers, so it's very easy to use but (a) you can't lock yourself out by accident with it, (b) it requires some force to pop it back out, which makes it much harder for kids to undo, and (c) since it's not a "real" lock, you can install it basically anywhere there's room -- it's very common to see them at the top of the door where a tiny human can't reach, even if they manage to drag a chair over. The only problem with this specific one is that you have to be able to drill into the doorframe to install it, which can be tricky depending on how old your house is and things like that.

There are quite a few other options that don't require power tools you can find by searching for things like "travel door lock"; the typical target audience is travelers looking to reinforce their hotel room, but they're very useful in other situations as well.

A friend of mine actually pulled a sword on a guy who came after him with a baseball bat after a minor fender-bender, but he was on his way to the renfair at the time and it was just part of his costume.

It did the trick anyway. The guy backed off, no cops were called, and now it's just a fun story. This comment should in no way be construed to suggest that carrying a sword in your car is a good idea.

If you want to carry a weapon in your car, make it a six D-cell Maglite, like my cop friend recommended. I call mine 'Big Red'.

Interesting! I don't have a dog in this race and only listened to the podcast interview with Casarett, but he also wrote an entire book called Stoned (lol) about his deep dive into medical marijuana as more and more patients were asking about it, if you're interested in learning more.

Podcast interview (this is a great podcast in general!):

responsible people will generally put in a special fake bullet that looks like super laser pointer. They'll zero that in at whatever yards (example certain 556 rounds go up and down hitting the same zero at 25/250m so you zero at 25 real quick and move out to 250m with live rounds) and then walk it back until it's zeroed at the range they want. That way while they may not hit the X they'll at least be on the paper and be safe. It really depends on the round if this step is necessary. I usually do it with 308/7.52x51 and up.

I'm curious if capital gains (0-5%) or income tax (10%) would be applicable :

  1. at the market value for each commodity exchanged;
    • Assuming the pirated work has $0 value. Could be in for a world of hurt arbitration if some valuable gems slipped through his hands as pure income.
    • As capital losses would "cancel" gains, simplif-- Wait. Is the printing accomplished by manufacturing, trade or theft...
  2. as a the difference between the initial investment and final cash out; (10%)
    • sugar sales - printing costs = income
  3. as a compound factor built from the number of exchanges/trades and applied to the final cash-out; (34.4%)
    • 1 - (1 - tax rate)^exchanges = 1 - (1 - 0.1)^4

      .. Having done some quick searches; I'm now wondering if the grocer is exploiting this guy to supply a niche/online sea-shell market, and/or if India hadn't cracked down on pirate printers would he have enough money to have "commercially" bound-copies of the book instead. (Single copies of out-of-print textbooks were about $7 incl shipping, less with class-sized pun redacted orders.)

I have this: Omega Paw Elite Self Cleaning Roll 'n Clean Litter Box, Midnight Black, Large It's a bit expensive, but so worth it!

Roll it slowly until is almost upside down, hit the bottom two or three times to lossen up the litter that got stuck at the bottom, turn it right and take out the scoop on the side. It only take 3 minutes top. If you're confused (like everyone is the first time I try to explain it), start this video at 1:35

And it's really big. I have two cats and when is full of litter I can take two days to clean it. I could leave it for more time (a friend of mine does), but I don't like to leave it for too long and is easy to do.

Why wait? I got this camera because is live in a state that doesn't require notice for landlord to enter property and I kept finding the maintenance people in my room for "check ups". Works great and not too expensive. Now I love it because I can sneak on my dog at work.

Basically what that other guy said! Mine came with a back camera but I don’t use it, I didn’t want to string wire through my car to connect it. And mine overwrites old footage whenever the card gets full, and has a little button to press if you need the most current saved, and I think saves if it detects a strong enough impact but I’m not sure. It even has gps to track my speed (so like in the wreck I just had, the lady said I tried to speed up to hit her as she changed lanes, but I was actually breaking). I’ll see if I can dig through my amazon purchases and find the one I use.


This is the one I have.

I'll take this opportunity to plug their book: The Law of Superheroes. It's a pretty interesting read, I recommend it for anyone who's interested in law and comic books.

> I'm so glad that smoke detectors have built-in batteries that last 10 years now, no more checking your batteries or looking for a 9V somewhere when it starts beeping.

My local code requires these in all residences, actually.

I'm not opposed to them, but I, uh, may be violating that ordinance in one location so I can get a better alarm. That takes an AA though, so no weird 9V thing.

(The motivation is as follows. Wait, I mean the motivation would be if I were to be violating the ordinance, yes that's it. Anyway, there are two kinds of smoke detectors -- ionization and photoelectric sensors. Each has strengths in terms of what kinds of fires it can detect better than the other; ionization detectors do better when you have a fast burning fire, while photoelectric does better when it sits there smoldering for a while. Both kinds of fires are realistic threats in a home. But you don't have to pick one or the other -- there are dual-sensor alarms that have both. However, you can't, or at least couldn't when I was outfitting my house, get these with a lifetime battery -- only with a normal, replaceable battery, or hard-wired with battery backup. But I'm also somewhat okay about testing them.)

u/britishpolarbear · 15 pointsr/bestoflegaladvice

It was in a locked container only the owner had access to. The OP said they took a case they thought contained the firearm, they never actually explicitly said they saw the handgun, since it was in a locked container they couldn't access. I think it's probably a safe assumption that they tried to open it and verify the contents, but couldn't, so just took the case. The post never mentions ammunition, so we don't know if it was stored in a separate case the OP didn't take, or if the locked hard shell case was large enough to contain it.

Nobody is going to have a proper gun safe in a college campus room, mate. We don't know what the contract says is an acceptable safe for storage, but if something like this would suffice, then a locked hard shell case isn't too far from it.

The Tile idea was the best

This is the solution. You can get Tiles for cheap:

$15 from Amazon -

$5.30 from WalMart -

Mine as well buy multiple and stuff them in various envelopes and items.

u/NoThereIsNone · 34 pointsr/bestoflegaladvice

Recommendation here for Stephanie Calmenson's excellent book May I Pet Your Dog?:The How-to Guide for Kids Meeting Dogs (and Dogs Meeting Kids). It's a great little picture-book style book by an established author that really lays out the protocol in a way kids and dog-naive parents can understand.

12GB of ram, I7. You can find the best buy version of this as well, which has a 1tb hard drive instead of a 256gig ssd.
