I'd like to give someone my DarkVoice OTL but the design flaws and modifications make me uncomfortable to pass it on. Aug 25, 2022

        At the time, I really enjoyed how the stock version sounded with K-340. Dunno if I'd feel the same today; it's been at least five years, and tastes change (and sometimes mature).

      Even if your Covid test is negative stay home if your throat is even slightly scratchy. Faked me out last weekend before shit got real.

        Lost most my taste and smell yesterday 4-5 days in. Very frustrating. I hope it comes back sooner rather than later.

        Almost everyone gets it back in 30 days but there's potentially long term damage. It's maddening for me because my sense of smell was excellent, possibly my best sense. I once detected a friend's car problem through smell alone while he couldn't smell anything. Hope it comes back quickly, there's some slight indication it is.

        Thought crypto losses couldn't be written off... even though gains can be taxed...

        It's a write off if you sell, which can help offset capital gains from more successful investments elsewhere. Bitcoin and ether basically do none of the things they promised, as currency, as a hedge against anything, etc. However, in the midterm, post recession, we may see price increases again after further decreases. That's my outlook based on there being plenty of dumb people out there.

        Believe it is treated same as a capital loss. You can write off against capital gains or $3,000 of regular income per year and then carry the remaining loss balance on to the next year. Not financial advice not an accountant.

        I don't think it's people want to die. It's people don't want to die a slow painful death via radiation poisoning and sickness or whatever.

        On top of that, if 95% of the world was destroyed by nuclear war, life would look vastly different. All modern stuff would be useless pretty soon. Society would probably degrade to people running around killing each other or something equally bleak.

        I recently learned of the story of Ouchi Hisashi and how he ended up living in a dead body for months after exposure to lethal radiation. I'd honestly rather live, but between the choice of a quick death with some dignity and an ignoble protracted decaying where you KNOW there isn't hope of convalescence, I have an idea of which I'd prefer. That said, fuck war and the people who push for it.
