    Warm or mildly hot water doesn't kill germs but it does melt some kinds of oil/grease better than cold water which can make some oily substances harder and slow washing them off.

    5:04 I know not all of you are Christian but I'm pretty sure astrology is against God. I think I read that it's up to God to see your future and nobody else. Not that I believe astrology anyway

    The "door close" buttons on elevators. A) Just wait a few seconds. B) I've heard that in some if not most elevators this is a button that doesn't do anything. Not sure if that's actually true. Either way, no need to press "door close" after entering the elevator.

    and what about circumcision? I don't wanna debate about this in the comments but surprised to not see it mentioned by someone as it's not even practiced in Europe or Asia, basically the majority of the world, unless for religious reasons.

    For school at 7 am, my elementary school started at 8:30, then they f*cking changed it to 7:30, thankfully it was implemented when I was in 4th grade so I only delt for two years, then a year in one middle school then we moved, and here I am. Though I think the high school I will go to will start at 7 so rip
    EDIT: yep it starts at 7:20. Wish me luck next school year

    I am so glad that there is something about kids and start times, im a crazy conspiracy theorist and people lump my crazy bs into shit like this. School system is broken top to bottom would have to get rid of the human scum that runs it all first after ridding the govt of its grasp of the children and our future.

    LOL, As the video loaded, I muttered to myself "saying bless you" and it was the first one!
    Praying has a purpose, but it's a nefarious one. Religions have a much higher retention rate when everyone in a community practices the same one and does it regularly. Prayer is a ritualistic way to "encourage" brand loyalty (faith) in the religion. Other than the mental masturbation aspect of feeling good for silently hoping for good things, it's functionally useless to the person doing the praying. But it's very helpful to the preacher and the church in retaining their flock.

    There are hand wash stations at at least two army chow halls that I have been to that were actually designed by someone with a brain that was allowed to use it... they are after the CAC reader/ cash box and have knee panel operation with comfortably warm water: Fort Hunter Liggett, CA and Daegu, South Korea. Love them.

    14:40 - I take a selfie maybe once a year just to have a photo of how I look at a given time. Maybe I lost weight, or am rocking a different hair style or beard, and just want to have something semi-up-to-date… but yeah, some people really take them on a near-daily basis, and it's all vanity. Might make sense if they were some hair-stylist or something showing off different work tho? ¯\\\_(ツ)_/¯

    If you order not sitting at your table that does not mean you should not tip your tipping for the bullshit mess that people have to clean up after you you're tipping because that place doesn't pay enough for its employees. I've worked at places that were like this and even though yes you could go up and pick up your food we brought it out to you. We cleaned up all the smashed food your fucking kids motion to the ground we clean up all your damn dishes and we cook your food if you want a bitch about tipping or the food prices then cook your own damn food trust me at the hell of a lot cheaper your high prices because the corporations and because we have to clean up your bullshit

    That one about pep rally really took me back. One of the schools I went to had the worst pep rallies. They literally just stood there and read off the name of every single player on every single team and then the rally was over. There was absolutely no pep of any kind.

    I'm surprised no one from the US said filing taxes! If you're a traditional employee who files a 1040 the gov't knows how much you made, how much you owe in taxes, but won't tell you so good luck figuring that out! Oh and if you get it wrong, get ready for an audit!

    You don't want to get sprayed? Gotta stand back far as you can, and it still won't work!
    What's even the point of timed taps if you're gonna waste water by spraying water the instant it touches a hand, anyway??

  • One Million Subscribers Challenge

    Whenever someone says that they "prayed" for me, it just makes me want to
    1) not trust them,
    2) tell them that if they want to help, just ask how to help
    3) tell them "that is useless information"

    I am Wiccan, but I still react the same no matter what god(s)/goddess(es) they tell me they prayed to (unless they prayed to a deity of vengeance to get rid of a person who did something to me when they weren't there)

    School needs to start early enough that parents can get to work after dropping them off. Plus go to bed. Kids do need sleep and parents need time to relax after kids go to bed and then get to bed themselves.

    The theory behind Daylight Savings time:
    I wake up at 6 am every day. I have a doctor's appointment at 10 am, two hours before local solar noon.. My morning routine takes about an hour and a half, and it's going to take me a half hour to get to the doctor's office, so I need to wake up at 2 hours before my appointment, so my appointment needs to be at 8 am. Let's adjust all the clocks in the hemisphere forward two hours so that it says 6 am so that I can wake up in time for my doctor's appointment.

    I used to have to dim the running lights on my old YV-666. That junker had a bum power distributor. Ended up lucking out and found a YV-929 for 1/3 original price. After the Empire collapsed, the ban was lifted off them and now they're safe to fly pretty much anywhere.

    @ 4:50 scientifically speaking astrology is based on the position of the planets the position of the planets has an impact on Space weather certain space weather like solar coronal hole streams and solar flares and increase cosmic rays from extended kp0 events can aggravate mental health issues and has a general impact on the human psyche and can even cause heart attacks and strokes in people susceptible to them so while specific predictions from astrology might be hogwash the basic principles have Merit
    Chakra points / stones
    Certain minerals resonate at frequencies that are affected by and are able to effect human brain waves not saying a rock can heal you or bring you peace but it does have an impact
    It is a scientific fact that human brain waves can and do affect the world around you to a surprising amount even if this is just the placebo effect it is is real and it does occur whether or not you are aware of it and is capable of having a significant impact on your health and well-being even if it's just Mind Over Matter it still works

    About the beds thing, one thing that is good though is to open the curtains. UV light kills most bacteria and a lot of other nasties. It's a lot stronger than many people appreciate. It is 100% worth your time opening the curtains and letting the light in during the day, as a very easy way to disinfect your room.
