Not from State Farm. Sorry to disappoint. I'm just a half-Iranian American exploring the fediverse. I am interested in science, tech, philosophy, animals, comedy, a wide range of music, and even politics. Though the politics in my country are plain depressing atm.

  • Democrats Need to Wake Up From Their ‘West Wing’ Fantasy
  • Maybe the DNC policies for their primaries need to be changed. Like maybe they shouldn't be able to over rule the primaries like they did with Burnie or be able to decide that there will be no primaries like they did this year.

  • The point of intermittent fasting is that during the fast your metabolism increases and your body enters partial ketosis which is beneficial for healing and general well being.

  • Home Insurance Rates in America Are Wildly Distorted. Here’s Why: Climate change is driving rates higher, but not always in areas with the greatest risk.
  • I mean places that regularly flood or are destroyed by tornados should be more expensive to live in and insure. It makes no sense for whole cities to need to be rebuilt near yearly.

  • Also intermittent fasting is not a diet and does not create a calorie deficit.

  • Metabolism can help or hinder weight loss depending on the diet.

    Started on AMC+ and now it looks like it's on Prime. I haven't watched it yet but it seems promising and the fight scene I saw looks pretty over the top and epic.

    Hydrogen fuel-cell e-bikes can be "recharged" in seconds

    newatlas.com Hydrogen fuel-cell ebikes can be 'recharged' in seconds

    While most ebikes on the road today will come with a battery pack, some are riding down the hydrogen fuel-cell cycle path. HydroRide not only has fuel-cell ebikes available, but also a compact refill station to top up H2 canisters.

    All the power of an ebike with all the convenience of a kerosene powered motorcycle.

    How do I use a dry herb vape properly?

    So I have used a resin vape pen, a thc disposable and edibles and while the disposable makes me cough if I inhale wrong, the dry herb vape will straight up make me throw up due to little bits of weed getting inhaled. Is it a technique issue or maybe I ground it incorrectly,

    The 15 Minute City Conspiracy Theory, Explained

    I feel like he does a pretty good job explaining the origin of the suburbs from a geopolitics position, though some of the youtube comments are unhinged.

    I've noticed that standard vapes make me cough out my lungs, every. Freaking. Time.

    But my rosin vape doesn't do that. I might cough if I puff too many times in a row but even then it doesn't hurt, just tickles. What is added to standard vapes that I am reacting too? Is it a quality problem or should I just get rosin from now on?

    So I found a cheap bridge camera that I have free access to. Is it worth learning on.

    I have free access to a family member's camera but it really isn't the best. I think it has a 1/2" sensor though the sensor is not listed anywhere on the box or in the manual which I guess is a red flag. Should I wait and save up more money to buy a better camera or could I use this one to learn on?

    Why do so many videos and even online camera stores call the 4/3 type sensor "Micro Four Thirds" when Micro Four Thirds is a mirrorless camera mount format?

    I get that they sound similar but they absolutely are not the same thing and its use implies that there are only mirrorless cameras.

    I found a video describing a clever way to turn old bags into panniers

    I am sure this would work for messenger bags, camera bags, or really any bag. And hard board backing could be added to them from rubbing on the wheels.

    > I had been looking for a bike to get around my local city and managed to snag a Huffy cruiser for $50. It is in decent shape with only some superficial rust on the pedals. This will be a big learning experience for me as I haven't ridden a bike for nine years. I'll both learn how to use a bike to run errands and how to do some of my own maintenance. Maybe even customize it a bit by adding a frame lock and a 3 speed gear hub. I guess we shall see how far I get in this learning and fitness quest.

    Can a "Dutch" utility bike be made in the US?

    So I live in the US and I have seen a few videos proclaiming the virtues of Dutch style bikes including NoJustBike's video. They all are saying that these bikes cannot be found in the US but couldn't one just buy a step through frame and just add the missing features themselves such as a chain guard and parallel handle bars?
