  3. The Sleep And Insomnia Thread

    It was like $70 I think, there was a specific brightness stat that my sleep doctor told me it must have. Ambien usually makes me at least a little nauseous, it makes your vision twirl and stuff so its disorienting. I've had to puke a handful of times on it, but often that has been because one pill impairs your judgment and makes you think it's a good idea to take 2 more. To me, there's no way to experience the sleep effects of Ambien without also tripping hard, so now I only keep getting them so I can take one every once in a while for a fun night. Smoking helps me get to sleep a little but I never feel truly well rested the following day.
  4. The Sleep And Insomnia Thread

    Sleep has always been tough for me. I'm diagnosed with "Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder", which is supposed to mean that my circadian rhythm doesn't take cues properly from sunlight and my sleep cycle is therefore delayed some hours ahead of what is considered "normal" (it sounds like half of the population has this to some degree). It really fucked me up in high school, i walked around like a zombie every day. Being sleep deprived for a long stretch of time always made me depressed, I think others experience the same. Luckily It's not as bad in college though since I have been able to choose later classes. To treat it, I was told to buy a light box, which is just a big very bright special light bulb meant to replicate sunlight or some shit, and I had to hang out around it for 20 minutes in the morning, bringing my wakeup time one hour back every two days until it was at an optimal time. Also melatonin at night. The weird thing was how effective the light box worked. After just two days of using the light box at 7:30, i would wake up automatically at that time with no alarm, right on the dot. Unfortunately I would also get tired and fall asleep at "normal" times, like 10-11pm, which is really just an unacceptable lifestyle for me, so I stopped doing the whole thing. So I can't complain really, I have the ability to fix it but instead opt for the sleep deprivation every day. I'm also prescribed Ambien, what a fucking drug, in terms of "weirdness" it truly is up there with any hallucinogenic. Can't believe my doctor prescribed me that when I was 16. P.s. air conditioning currently broken in my house, so fucking hard to sleep when it's this hot
  5. US Politics/Elections Thread

    It's lobbying money combined with the fact that many gun enthusiasts are single issue voters. This is why Congress won't even pass common sense gun reform laws that everyone except gun lunatics agree on (like closing the gun show loophole, implementing a psych background check, etc). If you vote for any of these reasonable restrictions on gun rights, your NRA letter grade goes down and you alienate a significant enough portion of your voters.

    I don't understand why presidential pardons exist or were ever even thought of, it defies all sense.

    That's in New York City. A 2008 survey by the United States Conference of Mayors asked 25 cities for their top three causes of homelessness. Substance abuse was the single largest cause of homelessness for single adults (reported by 68% of cities). The issue is that financial issues and drug addiction are complimentary.

    Substance abuse is the #1 cause of homelessness, not losing a job or getting sick. Not saying this gives cause to blame them but that post paints a slightly inaccurate picture of homelessness

    Interesting. While it's certain that Russia tried to meddle in the election , it wouldn't surprise me too much to learn that the DNC hack specifically was falsified as being Russian in origin.
  12. US Politics/Elections Thread

    Good question, I guess it's because, for better or worse, society is paying a lot of attention to black issues that were considered trivial (maybe they sometimes are?) or never really considered at all before. It is kinda fucked up that black people have to live around monuments that were erected to glorify the Confederate cause and effectively reaffirm that blacks were still second class citizens. I have a few black friends who have moved up from the South who have told me about how the legacy of racism and slavery is sorta always lingering, like you walk around and there's buildings and parks named after former slave owners, confederate monuments, etc. There's parts of the South where racism is still really dark and prevalent, I think today a lot of people tend to view stories of the KKK/white supremacists as sort of just "ghost stories" when it's very real in some parts of the country. While I agree it's a slippery slope, I don't think statues that embolden them should be kept up outside of museums.

    The issue is that many of these monuments were erected partly with the intention to intimidate black people. It was far more a message to black people that although the South lost the war, this is still "their" land. It is no coincidence that the majority of then were built during times in which there was more racial conflict.
