Pop! OS(Ubuntu-based) with Gnome 3. Works great and I'm quite pleased with it. I've been using Linux for 18 years now and I get irritated whenever I have to use Windows. Is it the updates forcing themselves whenever you boot or shut down the computer or the diagnosis/troubleshooting program that never has a solution for the actual problem or how sluggish and bloated it is? Though Linux isn't without its caveats, at least I feel like I have control over my computer.

This was his comment on something I posted(about guitars): guitars are dirty gypsy instruments... improve your game with an caucAsian/Asian instrument such as a cello, viola, violin...! Good riddance. Also, if you happen to read this, what happened to the "HOME" link? Is "SUBSCRIBED" the same thing(I'm a bit out of the loop)? Like the new banner BTW.

Indeed. The tonal variations and volume shifts between pianissimo and forte(very soft to loud(had to look it up))engage the mind in a pleasant manner. Quite therapeutic.

Oh crap, you're right. Should've read the article first. I was trying to find some info on the effects of low-frequency sound waves then got sidetracked by the article which I was referring to. That and weed.

5G Radiation Already Used In Crowd Control

It might sound difficult to believe but the 5G frequencies which will soon be blanketing our neighborhoods have been under development for a number of years by defense agencies, including the U.S., Russian and Chinese, as a means of crowd control. The US army uses Millimeter waves in crowd dispersal guns called Active Denial Systems. Dr. Ben-Ishai explains, “if you are unlucky enough to be standing there when it hits you, you will feel like your body is on fire.”

Because the state shouldn't legislate what you can and can't put in your body. It all boils down to personal responsibility.

This is only anecdotal but I was a 20 year smoker who switched to vaping 4 years ago. I feel much better now. I can take in deep breaths and hardly cough anymore. From Health Canada: "Vaping is less harmful than smoking. Many of the toxic and cancer-causing chemicals in tobacco and the tobacco smoke form when tobacco is burned."

Former Dupont employees, residents and lawyers took on the chemical giant to expose the danger of the chemical C8, found in Teflon and countless household products from stain and water resistant apparel to microwave popcorn bags to dental floss. by HibikiBlack in conspiracy

From Wikipedia: "While PTFE(Polytetrafluoroethylene) is stable and nontoxic at lower temperatures, it begins to deteriorate after the temperature of cookware reaches about 260 °C (500 °F), and decomposes above 350 °C (662 °F).[58] The degradation by-products can be lethal to birds,[59] and can cause flu-like symptoms[60] in humans—see polymer fume fever. Meat is usually fried between 204 and 232 °C (399 and 450 °F), and most oils start to smoke before a temperature of 260 °C (500 °F) is reached, but there are at least two cooking oils (refined safflower oil at 265 °C (509 °F) and avocado oil at 271 °C (520 °F)) that have a higher smoke point." Even so, there doesn't seem to be much data available on the long-term effects of this chemical considering that many people use skillets, pans, woks covered with this substance on an almost daily basis over the span of many years until the Teflon(TM) starts flaking off the pan... Final edit: Oh, it's PFOA. Crap.

I've noticed a recent thread of the MSM pushing this very invasive type of technology. They say no GPS but even if that were the case, using that chip for most daily activities will get you tracked anyway(purchases, transit usage, door locks, etc.). What does Saidit think?
