I don't know if I would call it alarming as much as eye-opening.

I had been flying commercial all day (coach), and had saved a bunch of Valium specifically for when I got home. I eventually discovered that Valium doesn't do anything for me unless I'm particularly keyed up, but at the time I thought the issue was the dose. because 10 and 15 mg wasn't making me feel anything, I assumed I needed to take 25 or 30, so that's exactly what I did.

woke up the next morning to find a half eaten bowl of plain ramen noodles in the sink, the still-full bullion packet in the trash. I had to go and check my security cameras, I'd gotten up, made the noodles, eaten half of them, stuck the bowl in the sink and then went back to bed, in a complete state of blackout. ordinarily, when I'm high, I know better than to attempt certain things. I don't turn the oven on, because I'm going to leave it on. obviously I don't drive. I don't post on social media, or have anything other than one word replies to anybody who texts me (other than the people who think it's funny when I'm baked). the fact that I had been in a blackout state and still somehow felt comfortable turning the stove on and boiling water meant I didn't know that I was fucked up. the fact that I didn't use the seasoning packet means that I was clearly not in full control my faculties. I don't take benzos recreationally anymore

wasn't it for tank crews to hose down the outside of their tanks without exposing themselves? I had assumed it functioned properly for that. I assume the bent MP40 performed better, since you're not dealing with a high velocity cartridge

until they're asking for genuine help (which starts with help getting clean), any attempt to help would be mostly enabling, i think. I would start distancing myself from this guy, just so I don't have to watch them kill themselves. but I would let them know what I was doing and why at the same time. myself and a group of friends (all in recovery ourselves) cut ties with a really close friend when he relapsed and refused to go to rehab. in our case, that was the final straw he needed to get help again, and now he's been sober for like 10 years. I can't guarantee it'll go well, he's clearly self-destructive, but I don't enjoy watching it

it was never about defeating nazism. if Hitler had stayed in germany, the world would have let him do all of his things

it takes time for a company to become profitable. the intentionally make sure to pay us so little we never have any run out

that was fueled mostly by the fact that the government investigated the idea. people take it to mean that means they saw enough evidence to believe it, but it was probably an ass-covering for a rumor

when they buried the founder of mormonism, Joseph Smith, they filled his coffin with sandbags. he was actually dead though

I watched a guy use Occam's razor to kill Schrodinger's cat and then he just fed it to Pavlov's dogs. he said the god particle told him to do it

it's doing that thing when I try to post where it says only trusted users can post which usually means that the subreddit has been locked.

there are quite a few of us out here still using it. is there some other place for us to help each other?

on my homepage, I hit the three dots and then "hide read". it hides a couple posts right at the top, but my entire feed is still posts that I've already read. I keep hitting "hide read", and after 5 or 6 times it's finally showing me all new stuff.

am I doing something wrong?

*edit - apparently it helps if you spell Lemm. ee properly *

it doesn't work through the app. my account was created through lem. ee , but when I google "lem. ee login" it's some website with a shopping cart that looks sketchy

it's exactly the same as the boost for Reddit push notification icon, so I can't tell at a glance which one is notifying at the moment. can I change it like I did the app icon?
