Actually I do! I will try to get some stuff from them :)

Time to check what is needed to grow mushrooms! :)

Removing it feels like "losing space" because it won't add any benefit to the room. Maybe a more detailed sketch of the room would help. Would it?

I have a couch that can be turned into a double bed on the ground floor. So 4 people can sleep easily in my room...

If it helps in any way, I have a difficult relationship with my father, too.

I am the firstborn son of an arabic father. This, for some, already summarises the troubles I face. He has a specific view of what I should be and should not be and he does not seem to understand that I am all the way on the other side of that spectrum. He wanted a masculine/strong and muslim guy who goes to uni abroad, comes back to his hometown, finds a good paying job, builds a house, has grandchildren and in general makes him proud.

What he got is an atheist, slightly chubby nerd that is not earning much at doing his PhD, thinks about staying in academia or even studying longer. I do not intend to go back to my hometown nor do I play to get married or build a house any time soon.

Every time we meet, I have a feeling that he finally accepts me and my decisions just to end the meeting with a bang. I leave upset, he leaves upset, rinse and repeat. This has been going on for the past 9 years.

I think it will never change. Or rather, I accept that it will not change any time soon and act as if I don't care.

I agree with kleinbl00 here, just be yourself and do whatever you want to do. We will find our ways :)

I am so excited for you. I wish you a great time!!!!

If you meet any Israelis, give them a hug from "that drug guy from DPW" from me!

Goobs, will you join me at my first burning man in two years?

I have been to 4 Midburns and did DPW and translation team in all 4 but couldn't make it to the big one yet!

In two years my thesis will be done. Then I will have time :)

Next year I am doing Borderlands with a small art project.

Where in Europe will you be?

I am watching it and please do not spoiler me on last night, haven't watched it yet, Europe and stuf...

I think it is. The usual argument is "soup cant be sweet" but then you have Fruit Soup then someone says "milk can't be the main liquid in a soup!" and I give them Milk Soup.

So, if one defines soup as a liquid containing some pieces of "other stuff" and soup can be sweet and have milk as basis.... Cereal is a soup

I just watched the video in the article. The alt-right protesters are armed... Why is there no police? There should be a line of police between those two groups and not just standing on the side and letting them beat each other up.

Am I missing something?

Thank you for posting this, it made me giggle.

We had a similar question running around the city a few years ago.

Is a hot chocolate a chocolate soup?

A factor that might explain the increase in use was not mentioned in the article is the good efficacy of opioids against depression. A quick google search led to a short summary from last year. I have heard that from a few psychiatrist that found out that some people respond well to a low dose of Buprenorphine (Suboxone).

A quick look for depression map in the U.S. got me to this map from 2006/2008. The correlation is not perfect but I see some similarities to the one reported in the article. Would be interesting to see how an updated map looks like.

Just a thought...
