Now they seem to have removed the option to use it "anonymously," i.e. you now have to give them an email address and log in.

I found a trick to bail me out of unpleasant lucid dreams. I focus on my breathing, take some control of it, and make it deep and noisy enough for the sound to wake me. I don't have many lucid dreams these days though.

I took an exam I thoroughly expected to fail, if that counts. I didn't want to be seen to defy my bosses who insisted it was a great career path for me. So I took it a couple of times, failed, and eventually told the bosses that I wasn't going to try again. It never made any difference to my "c...

I've always been interested in them, but my memory had a lot of trouble recalling all those new words, so I was never great at foreign languages. I passed exams in elementary French and Latin, but never felt I was fluent. A few decades later I had a strange idea of listening to a French radio statio...

I was doing a lot of tasks that needed physical agility and competence, and had begun to notice that my performance was off. It took me about 3 tries to properly get from a loft onto the top of a ladder. I was among friends or a caring family. I used some device I'd designed earlier to lower me gent...

Farage's return = more misery for the Tories:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/articles/c1ddpx72214o

Might lose them a few more seats. And their favourite way of mitigating the problem is to step further to the right, which might be unpopular with the electorate.

No, I think I'd go for the calorie-restriction method if I went for anything: https://sitn.hms.harvard.edu/flash/2020/can-calorie-restriction-extend-your-lifespan/ Doesn't seem that hard.

Why would an organisation that would normally use a call centre with a landline, be calling from a mobile? Unfortunately I've known that to happen in the USA, where important calls from a healthcare provider came in from an employee's mobile phone. All you can do is warn them not to do that, but wi...

I gather Angela Rayner and Diane Abbot have both been forgiven by the leader for their socialism. It's rumoured they were first offered peerages to step down, but the leadership says the peerage system doesn't work like that. The Tories are highlighting the U-turns and claiming that Rayner is runnin...

what part of " thou shalt not kill " do these pols contest? Disappointingly, the correct translation is apparently "thou shalt not murder," meaning that killing is fine as long as it's legal. Even if it's the Third Reich making the laws. It's one reason why I prefer humanist eth...

The only supplements I bother with are Vitamin D3 and calcium chloride - not as a direct autism fix, it was just that I noticed my diet was deficient in those two, so it's to correct that. All part of my general health management, which I think has more than a placebo effect on how I handle ASD. Mos...

Yes the all-or-nothing problem is quite common with us. I've made some progress since realising that's what I'm doing, but I think it'll always be a problem. It does have a worse impact when there's involvement with other people. I was lucky because my job didn't need a lot of collaboration in real ...
