next time you're working together, say "this project is really hard" and gesture towards your already throbbing erection.

jk, you should be fine dude. if she's even kinda into you, something that small won't kill you. ask her to eat lunch with you or something

You know, sometimes girls like guys playing hard to get. If you get so flustered that she's beautiful, sexy, etc; it'll always be hard for you to be yourself. If anything always act like it'll never go anywhere, and it'll be easier from there my friend.

I don't have problems talking to girls, just talking in general. I can't think of a topic, it always ends up being silent and awkward. My mind searches for things to talk about, but I can't.

Don't worry about it dude. Girls don't have any problems with quiet guys. You'll be okay.

Ahh.. well that's a horse of a different color. In my experience of not being able to talk, its not as bad as you'd think to be a silent person. Sometimes its better to be the one that listens to other around you. And sometimes you just have to start with a joke, and then go from there.

V1= original volume.
V2 = is the new volume.

I got moles down so easy but these dilution shits are almost impossible... not sure why I struggle with them so much.
User avatar #181440 to #181439 - solislunis (04/15/2015) [-]
well dilutions are always mols/liter which will equal Molarity.

so if we have 6.1mols of H2SO4 and we mix it with 2.15L of solution. What will our molarity be?
User avatar #181441 to #181440 - hoponthefeelstrain (04/15/2015) [-]
It's 12 am for me and I'm writing a paper, so I don't have time to solve it but you'd take the molecular weight of H2SO4 and that will = grams then you'll convert moles to ml and ml to L and then divide the L by the grams yea?
User avatar #181443 to #181441 - solislunis (04/15/2015) [-]
well no actually you just divide the mols by the liters
so it would be 6.1mols/2.15L=x

you're just overthinking it, it i did give you grams of H2SO4 you'd have to convert using the combined molarmasses of what makes it up, same thing if i gave you mL instead of L.
Molarity or concentration is always Mols/Liters

Hello FJ'ers, from time to time I come to this board with shit I've been through, asking for advice, since I'm rather open about my life, especially since this is the internet and none of you people know me. But some of you who browse this board, or browse FJ in general might have a harder time asking for advice with some more difficult things you've been through.

So, if there are any of you here on the advice board, who have a hard time posting, due to the possibility of a lot of random people knowing about your problems, I wanted to give the offer of talking to a person in private, in this case, the person being me. The things I have been through includes a lot of family problems, most prominently sexual abuse. I'd like to share with you guys what I have learned from my experiences and with especially what I have been through, I know that it might take a lot of strength to tell more than one person at a time, especially FJ.

I won't judge people, I am just here to provide advice. I like to try and make people feel better, since it also makes me feel better in a sense. If any of you are interested in this PM me and I'd more than happily share my contact information with you guys, so we can have a talk.

TL;DR: If any of you have some severe problems that you have a hard time talking to multiple people about, for instance if you have been the victim of sexual abuse or other things in that manner, I'd like to offer my advice in private at least. PM me or reply and I'll share my contact information with you guys.

Go to the Dr. That shit happened to my left ear and I didn't do anything for 2 weeks. I was practically deaf in 1 ear. Anyways I finally visited the dr and later that day it was back to normal. They just shoot water into your ear to flush whatevers in there out. They use a syringe with like some thin tube in place of a needle.

They make candles you can use to help suck out the wax. If it is water, just lean you head towards that ear more often. If anything, you can take a decongestant, probably help clear the sinus in your ear canal.

One thing I've tried in the past is to force your jaw forward and try to pop, and that helps to relieve the pressure off the sinus around your inner ear.

Guys, quick question if you don't mind.

Having a fight over Facebook which in the first place is pathetic, but it's over vaccinating your child. Now, I'm pro vaccination because if it weren't for vaccinations, it's fair to say we probably wouldn't be here right now.

Now, there's this girl on Facebook who is apparently anti vaccination, or that's what I'm getting the feeling of. I'll quote one of her messages here.

"It's the choice of the parents whether to vaccinate a child or not, it's a hard decision because on one hand your child could react badly, but on the other your child could get an illness and has a severe reaction to that instead, but then nothing could happen at all. It's not the internets choice whether to vaccinate a child. A Doctor would never force upon someone, so why should a lot of uneducated nutters?"

Now, she has a fair point (I think) about your child could potentially react badly to a vaccination however I think it's very, very low (If someone had any citation, that'd be great.) but the idea of not vaccinating is genuinely stupid as a whole, and I say that with confidence.

So, does anyone have any links to well sourced websites about vaccinations? Pros and cons are good because not everything is perfect. Thanks in advance.
User avatar #181474 to #181385 - iliekcereal (04/15/2015) [-]
The chances of someone reacting poorly to a vaccine is very rare. i'd say probably a fraction of a percent, depending on the vaccine

however, measles, for example, is something you have a 90% of catching if you're exposed to a sick person. as a result, all it would take for a measles epidemic is for 80% or less of the population to receive the measles vaccine. I'm probably wording that poorly, but i hope you get the idea

#181392 to #181389 - perfectcomment (04/14/2015) [-]
My friend posted the pic attached to this comment and his sister commented the following:

Seriously Steven. You can't force everyone to get their child Vaccinated. It's their choice whether they want to risk they're child dying through the injection or risk an illness that could kill them. Anybody who'd actually done any research on the subject wouldn't think it's a straight up choice! As a mother you have an instinct to tell you if something is going to hurt your child and if you get it about Vax's and then go against it because of what people are saying about you and loose your child, you'd be completely broken.
Don't force an uneducated opinion because you haven't got kids. You wouldn't understand how hard of a choice it is knowing the facts!

there's more if you like, too.

#181393 to #181392 - dragx ONLINE (04/14/2015) [-]
I don't really need to see anymore;')
Motherly instinct =/= years of medical research and findings.
She can think whatever the fuck she wants to? Your child risks a lot less from the vaccination, and the vaccination is the only option with the capability to cure your child. You can watch it die, or try to help it, but you're not doing the child any favours by refusing to give it the treatment it needs because your bullshit instinct tells you otherwise.
There's a fine line between, i know what's good for my child and what i want for my child.

It seems like a conversation between friends. You didn't ask her out anyways. If you like her and wanted it to be a date don't use her situation to make a date. Say come to my house and well bake a cake. Or lets bake a cake together. If you want a date say, lets have dinner to forget about that stuff. Ask her on a date if you want to date. Tell her you like her if you like her. Shit man I'm in this super confusing are they or aren't they relashinship and all you need to do is ask a girl out. Not that hard. Ask yourself right now.

Looking for an apartment again in Southern California. My monthly net income is ~$1204. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development says my rent shouldn't exceed 30%; so I can afford only up to $360/mo rent.

What is your guy's opinion on helping the homeless, people less fortunate than you? On the role that empathy has to play in respect to our humanity e.g. if its part of what makes us himan, in respect to what we gain in return or why we do it, and in respect to everyday life where ideas like this, for most people, become drowned in everything else, mere background processes that hold no significance or if you think that they truly negligible.

Last time I talked to a homeless person was in Atlantic City and I was completely out of money cuz I had given the last of my money as a tip when I got food (not counting the money I needed for the train) and mr. homeless guy got real pissed about it. There's also a few I passed in Philadelphia who were dicks. One lady has been in the same spot for 4 years now, I'll typically give her any coins I have because she has a dog.
User avatar #181354 to #181338 - delphine (04/14/2015) [-]
Well, lots of people have their own set of reasons for why we help the less fortunate. Some do it for religious reasons, some do it to look good, some do it to feel good, some do it because they feel obligated. I don't have much money, but I enjoy going on Habitat for Humanity trips. I enjoy it because I get to meet the people I'm helping and see what my resources are accomplishing. You're not just throwing money at some unknown entity with no clue where it goes. I get to make new friends and see different parts of the country. I also like it because I remember the people who were there to help me when I was down on my luck. I want to do the same for someone else.
User avatar #181355 to #181354 - karlKroenen (04/14/2015) [-]
A great point; there are many reasons why we help others, all have their merits. But when you think hard about it you realize that most of these reasons loop back to oneself. "God told me to do so I fear god and eternal damnation so I choose right action, if I do not I will not gain the momentary respect of my peers, it won't cancel out that good deed the other person did for me despite how it finds its way back to me." Where am I going with this is: what is the role of empathy beyond 'we do it because,' beyond the part it plays in biology, in natural selection, in aiding us in the ability to survive and produce viable offspring, in our everyday thoughts and affections. I don't know. Perhaps our humanity is nothing, perhaps it is everything. Perhaps I am thinking too hard, maybe it's wrong to think deeply and post it on funnyjunk, I don't know. I don't care.

Giving to Charity is one of the most important deeds in my religion.
The levels of charity, from the least meritorious to the most meritorious, are:

Giving begrudgingly
Giving less that you should, but giving it cheerfully.
Giving after being asked
Giving before being asked
Giving when you do not know the recipient's identity, but the recipient knows your identity
Giving when you know the recipient's identity, but the recipient doesn't know your identity
Giving when neither party knows the other's identity
Enabling the recipient to become self-reliant
in my faith when you give. you receive something more valuable than all the resources in the world, in my faith the word for charity is simply translated as righteousness, justice or fairness. It is not just something generous, but infact an obligation, the performance of a duty to your fellow man

Charity is important, crucial in the sense of religion. What I am asking is what role empathy plays in our humanity depart from any divine say; the importance, if any, that feeling what others can feel and acting on this feeling gives to us, in any way, and if there is truly an unadulterated reward from this, despite which religion has taken our heart. I believe that it is not enough to say that "God told me to do so," or that "virtue was convenient at the time," I believe that whether we are religious or not; what god desires, and what we desire, is in the heart, in the mind, and truly in right action.

"and if there is truly an unadulterated reward from this"
when people give in the ways I describe in 181940 they are benefiting humanity's Faith,well being,thoughts and emotions,actions and words, and adding to the collective knowledge. when more people know a skill they can advance on the skill. When more people are given kindness..more people will be kind. when people are UNconditionally loved, others will pay it foward. when you give a bum on the street 100 bucks....he'll use it to buy alcohol,drugs,hooker,or a nice suit for a job interview
User avatar #181346 to #181341 - unforgivenfive ONLINE (04/14/2015) [-]
If we had NO empathy at all..how could we call ourselves...human(on more than just a species naming basis)

what seperates us from other organisms is our capacity our soul, which gives us a capacity for empathy and caring that no other being on the planet can match,
>"I believe that whether we are religious or not; what g-d desires, and what we desire, is in the heart, in the mind, and truly in right action. "

this is what G-d desires.kinda ironic if you ask me but it is true.
as I said before. giving your fellow something of yours, be it time,energy,knowledge, resources,etc. is a duty to my faith. not just an ordinance from g-d but something that is inherent in all of us.
User avatar #181351 to #181346 - karlKroenen (04/14/2015) [-]
Something that is inherent in all of us, Amen to that

What you mean like adding a productive unit to society?

You have x number of units who are a burden on society so to speak. They offer nothing, yet take.

Depending on charities specifically to homeless, you would be donating part of your wealth to contribute to more future productivity of benign units. Which in theory would increase productivity of the economy/area in which you or the units reside.
User avatar #181349 to #181345 - karlKroenen (04/14/2015) [-]
I understand your point; homeless people are negligible to the economy, they burden society, donating wealth is pointless as there will always be homeless people. It's more than easy to include them as a simple statistic in the next referendum to make your town attract more tourists. If you are thinking in terms of what would benefit the institutions that man has created; society, income, politics, everything in between; sure, homeless people offer nothing.

I can't force you to entertain this idea but; there is more to life than placing everybody and everything into the equation of modern society; it's become hard to think past what people will think if there is a large percentage of homeless people in your town; will your property value decrease? Even in the smallest subcultures we ignore what humanity is, why wouldn't we...its easy to ignore others, to live our lives in perfect complacence. Its even easier to get lost in media, in each other, in everyday life.

I am not satisfied with this; I know that not just helping people, that sincere empathy and love, feeling and acting in what we believe is right, in ways which stimulate our mind and heart, are a fundamental part of our humanity.

I'll just say it. I am not happy with my life. At all. I absolutely fucking hate it. I am stuck in this endless cycle of going to work then going to college classes. Nothing ever happens to me anymore and I don't know anybody. I am literally 10 minutes away from some family but I don't have a car to go see them, and when I have the chance to see them, I have to work.
User avatar #181358 to #181326 - feveryoucantsweat (04/14/2015) [-]
Man i'm with you there. All i can say is what keeps me going is the idea that its all building towards something yah know. Like have i been in college forever taking class after class, yea but ill get a degree eventually, even if hell it takes 10 years. Then i have something no one can take away, Jobs suck, theyre boring and no matter what youll get tired of it. But eventually the bs job you have now youll quit and youll get paid more and maybe youll feel like your job is worth it. Not knowing or seeing people sucks, like i feel pretty isolated as it is but hey eventually some girl will have low enough standards to date me, and ill meet people wholl interact with me eventually. Life is changing, let that shiz comfort you through the shizzy times.

Plus where are you in the world, it makes a diff.

Who knows, perhaps you asked this with the slight hope that somebody had the perfect words to help you, perhaps because everything you have tried has failed, or you just don't know what to do. I could give you advice that a doctor would; work out, meditate, eat healthy, and your chemicals and the totality of your biology will somehow sort itself out, perhaps if you did all this it would, who knows. I know that when somebody is so far down, where circumstances have put them in a sort of corrosive trance, where life is shit, day in day out, where it seems like there is nothing you can do, you truly feel hopeless, and you cant explain this feeling unless you have felt it. It's true, sometimes there is nothing you can do, perhaps life is cruel that way.

What I believe is that there is always a way out, perhaps this way out isn't close, or won't be easy to obtain. Sometimes we need somebody to give us a boost, or to experience something sublime, to feel the touch of somebody we love, sometimes we just need to think good and hard about what it is to be human, to be sad.

I have many quotes that could help, "Maturity comes when you stop making excuses and start making changes," "never forget why you started," " man cannot remake himself for he is both the marble and the sculptor" Many times I look at these and feel inspired, many times people have given me a shoulder to rest on and given me inspiration, but when it truly mattered, when it was only me and my happiness at stake, me in the darkness, I was the only person that could help me.

My answer to your post is that you know what to do; whether it is your personality to suck it up and do it, to cry the pain out, to laugh the night away with friends with the thought in the back of your mind, the answer is there: just find your heart and go from there. Godspeed.

I have taken up meditation. It's starting to help a bit. And yeah, you're right. I mean, at this point I felt like I tried everything to the point where doctors are fucking pumping me full of medications and the moment I stop I feel like I am an addict or something because I NEED the meds to keep me from having a complete breakdown from constant stress.
User avatar #181357 to #181344 - karlKroenen (04/14/2015) [-]
I used to take meds for anxiety, I was convinced that I needed them. I was prescribed by a psychiatrist with decades of experience, yet, I felt that I could cope without them. I stopped taking them for no other reason than what I believed was causing me anxiety, pain, hopelessness was nothing that any chemical or advice could help with. I stopped taking them and solved my own problems, for a time. No method works forever, we need to constantly evolve and compromise, and find happiness where we can. I have nothing else to give you.

I've been having girl problems recently, and this is a sort of long story so brace yourselves. Okay so there is a friend of mine that I dated before but we broke up because of distance between our colleges. We remained good friends afterwards, even though the first week after the breakup we were sort of bitter at each other. As time went on we got over it and became best friends again, and slowly started flirting with each other again until we admitted that we still liked each other. We decided to take a break from talking and see other people for the time being. She got a boyfriend, I had a girlfriend, and so far I am not sure if she is still with her boyfriend since I haven't asked, but recently she texted me and we had a really nice talk again and basically at the end she pretty much asked if I would consider transferring over to her college. I am not sure if this means she wants to be with me or hang out as friends still, and I don't want to guess wrong either way because I still have feelings for this girl and she hints that she still has feelings for me too.

Also note that we never really fought or had any disagreements other than the time that we decided to break up because of distance. We always got along great and didn't really get frustrated with each other. I was pretty happy with her and as far as I could tell she was happy with me.

Just ask her why she asked you to transfer.
User avatar #181359 to #181322 - feveryoucantsweat (04/14/2015) [-]
All i gotta say is transfering sucks and itll bone you eventually. Make sure youre ready for it if you decide to do it.
User avatar #181332 to #181322 - lordbrauner (04/14/2015) [-]
Before you make any big decisions, you need to be upfront with her about what you're thinking. Hints simply aren't good enough. Find out from her what her intentions truly are, explain your own intentions to her, and think hard about it before you act.

And then you need to decide what you want. Are you still with that other girl you mentioned? If so, you need to decide who you would be happier with. The girl who wants you to transfer, or the girl you're currently with.
User avatar #181335 to #181332 - lordbrauner (04/14/2015) [-]
But let me be the first to warn you, moving somewhere distant solely for a girl is a terrible idea. Have a plan. A purpose for you being there outside of that girl, or else you'll find yourself stuck, frustrated, and bored. You'll have nowhere to go and nothing to do if things went bad.

> Ive always wanted to be with an Asian girl because i love the culture

I read that and was immediately appalled. You're a fucking dumbass. You know, I come here and shit post/be retarded, but this. This is fucking THE most stupidest thing I've ever read on this board. "I like latino culture. Let me date a chick from Spain. That'll totally make me spanish."

>and if my birth certificate didnt say so id think i was asian.

Oh my FUCK, I was wrong. This just beat what you said at top.

>Im not a weaboo since ive only seen 2 animes.

You have to be a fucking troll. You know it's one thing to just have a thing for Asians, maybe you just prefer us or some shit, but just reading those three lines. You're just a full on little shit with no pride of who you are. Don't give me that bullshit "my heritage is lame.", my parents and all of my other relatives are nail workers, and I can garuantee that my entire family line is "boring", but it's what I am and I'm proud of it. You and everyone else has a history in things. You're part of a race that has done many things. You can like something else, but for fucks sake have some pride in yourself.

You want my advice? Just dump her. Obviously things aren't working out. Be a fucking man a just dump her. You're criticizing her for wanting to play safe and not taking risk while you're over here afraid to breakup with her just because you don't want to hurt her? Man up, life moves on. You're also calling her "dumb", dude. Move the fuck on. You're not going to respect her, just move on. She'll find someone else, or someone else will find her.

What kind of relationship have people insulting each other? I get if it's a playful joking thing, but "boring, dumb, oblivious" dude even said he gets annoyed with everytime he's around her. I doubt the love is there.
