@Antelope Basically, ignore the "token fluff talk generic blog level" advice you got from other guys. Here's what you do:
You don't go to sleep unless you're tired. If you're not tired, if your body doesn't really want to sleep, you can't help that, not in reasonably reliable and not-medication/drug based way. You can "force" it but the juice is not worth the squeeze. Work with your body not against it.
Human body changes it's metabolism when it sleeps. Ever noticed that when you wake up you are usually rather warm and relaxed? This is the basis for the next steps.
Wear a hat. You prevent heat loss form the head (which is a lot), you retain more temperature thus you achieve the "sleeping homeostasis" easier.
Wear warm socks. People with sedentary lifestyle often complain about their hands/feet being cold. This is b/c their metabolism and their bloodflow isn't delivering enough heat and "warm" blood to the extremities. Keep your feet warm to prevent your body thinking you're cold, even if your core is warm.
Drink a hot tea with raspberry juice just before you go to sleep. Not raspberry flavoured - real raspberry, honey is ok-ish substiute but not first choice. Hot, not just warm. The heat will increase your temperature, the juice will increase your perceive temperature even more. Both will make you relax faster which is key.
Add strong alcohol to the tea. Doesn't matter what, as long as it's strong. 2- tablespoons. This will further increase your perceived temperature. The heating of alcohol makes it more potent making you more relaxed and it greatly helps with relaxing your mind which is it's primary goal here.
Use the hat to cover your eyes so you block the residual light. Any light and especially any light level changes (car headlights passing nearby) are most likely hardwired into us as a sign that you should not be sleeping as something is moving and biologically speaking a possible threat. Hence the covering of the eyes.
- If you're actually cold, use empty glass bottle, fill it with hot water and put it either under/over your upper legs or on your stomach. Wrap it in a tshirt if you sleep naked or use the clothing you sleep in to prevent from getting burns. Upper legs b/c its the combination of biggest/most easy accessible muscle group, hence a lot of bloodflow and proximity to feet. Stomach b/c it has a lot of bloodflow too, plus it warms up your core with added bonus of the warmth relaxing your breathing. The goal of the bottle is twofold: provide heat to you and heat the surrounding area so your body doesn't lose heat doing just that.
In short, the your goal is to make your body go near the muscle relaxation, body temperature/blood flow that it goes into when it's sleeping.
As for your mind, the key into going sleep easily is not to think, literally. Relax and let your mind wonder where it wants to. Do not direct it, do not make plans, do not replay past events etc.
Source: always had trouble falling asleep, compounded by workload, PUA filled evenings, generally hectic and unscheduled days and nights. Did a lot of research, most of the professional sleep studies about brainwave patterns, sleep cycles, supplements and other chemicals is, from the practical day to day standpoint, completely useless and have negligible to no effect.
The above "routine" is based on, literally and figuratively, countless sleepless nights and it works amazingly well to dramatically cut the falling asleep time to minimum.Read More
it's not necessarily just due to that; often they (subconsciously at least) realize that they can get boys/men to do their bidding through manipulation and so don't really need a personality.
While it's not the sole factor, that it's a significant one is something we've all observed enough to agree we strongly suspect it's a significant one. However, the only thing subconscious related to it, is the lengths to which women go to in deluding themselves that we're ignorant that it's happening.
There's a reason why females are becoming increasingly violent in their behavior, after all. It's not that males were ever oblivious to female duplicity and manipulation, but that under the welfare state model, we're denied the incentive to be available to receive their demand, let alone fulfill them, or even care.Read More
@PurpleManufacturer94 they pretty much all stop around 14-17
Whenever they had their first experience with sexual intercourse is likely when their psychological development came to a screeching halt, especially if the relationship with the deflowering guy failed.
Virgins can be assholes too.
Just test a girls personality.
"Forget" your wallet in the car and ask her is she can cover a meal.
Little shit like that to test her character and commitment.
There are no "Nice" girls.
They all suck dick.
And that's not a bad thing. I'm just taking off the rose color glasses. and operating in reality.
In a world of the decay you learn to see through the peoples displays. The mask they wear and the lies they tell themselves.
When you look at someone and what they wear you are looking at what they want you to think of them.
"Oh she looks like a nice girl"
"Oh he looks like a edgy bad boi"
Something to keep in mind.
This was more a ramble then a comment.
fuck it mate, Send it
Last year, a branch of Spain’s Women’s Institute listed Mola’s The Girl, a part of the trilogy, as one of the must-read books and films by women that “help us understand the reality and the experiences of women”
@arakouzo No I have a crypto budget I put in weekly. I was doing ethereum for a while but ADA was looking good so I moved over to that. If I stop ADA I'm pushing it to another one (open to ideas).
I bought most of my ADA at or under 50 cents. But I have a weekly buy that's bringing up my average.
Morning. Looks like things are running smoothly for the past day or so, so here's the port mortem for anybody interested:
Thursday we moved caching and web services to a larger, faster server, bringing them both under the same roof (and saving us some money vs having 2x medium tier servers).
Friday evening, our internal database server started experiencing packet loss, unrelated to the caching and web server.
Saturday it was so bad that pages were no longer loading.
Packet loss on DB Server was resolved by data center.
- Now things are faster because no packet loss, and because caching and web are under the same roof.
Thanks for your patience.
