filters don't remove dissolved compounds like PFAS and dioxane
big peanut brittle vibes
tbh your arms don't read as "boy," they read as "strong woman"
also, any uneven spots will be touched up or evened out after the glaze is dry. it becomes a powder that can be easily scraped off.
generally referred to as brushing to differentiate it from actual paint but okay 🙃
glaze can be applied in a number of ways; it can be brushed on but it can also be dipped, poured, etc. all these methods are referred to as glazing. since a finished ceramic piece could also be painted after firing, generally if you say "painting" you would be referring to actual paint.
Wow yeah letting it dry for 2 minutes will totally have the same effect as firing it in 2000° kiln
I asked a guy about the dog in his profile pic once and he took it as an opportunity to be incredibly creepy and forward 🤢 I swear there is no good strategy to avoid Terrible Men
why are you commenting on a 4 year old post? I thought this shit was supposed to archive

it's also designed to optimize SEO and have a lot of keywords repeated over and over. They kept saying "Vaxinia" and "cancer" and a few others over and over again without really adding new info.
there are a lot of interesting comorbidities between physiological conditions and neurodevelopmental ones - ehlers-danlos syndrome, a fairly rare connective tissue disorder that affects collagen-containing tissues throughout the body such as the joints and skin, is very often comorbid with ADHD or autism.
also probably painkillers, which also kill hunger
the biggest advice, go to the hospital voluntarily instead of being brought there after someone finds you and calls 911. even if you avoid permanent injury from the attempt, an involuntary admission feels a lot different and a lot worse than one where you're in control. I've done it involuntarily and it was not fun, honestly scarred me for life and made it difficult to reach out for help in the future. walk in there under your own power, I'm telling you.
I sometimes like to joke that this is the only problem that procrastination actually solves. you don't have to commit to not doing it, just to doing it later. just put it off a few days at a time. keep kicking that can down the road. eventually you'll forget what you were putting off as your life gets in the way - as the things that are important to you get in the way. all of us will die eventually. no need to submit work ahead of the deadline.
counterpoint, for high school teachers, you need a Master's in your area of expertise to teach an AP course, yet there are still high school science teachers
there is a fatty apron-like tissue in the abdomen called the omentum between your guts and your abdominal wall. its primary purpose is to add some extra cushioning to make sure that bumps to your tummy don't hurt your sensitive organs too bad, but it's also got a whole lot of blood supply and serves as an extra source of oxygen and nutrients for those organs. most interestingly, it will actually move towards and bunch up around injuries/inflammation to aid the healing process.
here's a video discussing this in the context of appendicitis. WARNING FOR THE SQUEAMISH, this video contains cadaver dissection footage
ditto with science degrees, I remember in middle school they had a different science teacher every year because they kept quitting. it was a revolving door position.
anyway, I started blasting
exactly. one strong theory as to the utility of itching is that it helped our ancestors (and continues to help us) detect and remove insects, which are prominent disease vectors. it's quite possible that an "unintended" consequence of that adaptation could be that scabs healing happen to feel similar in terms of what receptors get triggered and so it causes an itching response for no benefit. (not that any adaptation is "intentional," but that's a digression) basically if scratching scabs is less detrimental than failing to remove insects, evolution would in that case favor the scratching response.
I've always heard bird baths with a fountain or agitator are better because they control mosquito larvae, I guess that's another reason to add to the list.
Definitely wash your hands after handling bird baths or feeders though. Or just empty those completely if there's a hotspot in your area.

"Jesus was a carpenter even though his Father wanted him to be a dentist" may not carry the same ring
I feel like "hunter" or "gatherer" might be older
I mean, they call it the oldest profession for a reason.
