He's not the first person I've heard give this advice. My sister recently graduated nursing school and she has also brought up that they're now teaching that it slows the healing of wounds and causes scars.

I don't use it on wounds simply because I don't have it around. Water has always worked fine for me.

edit: The more I research it the more it sounds like your advice is the "maliciously misleading" stuff.

From WedMD:
Using hydrogen peroxide or rubbing alcohol to clean an injury can actually harm the tissue and delay healing. The best way to clean a minor wound is with cool running water and mild soap. Rinse the wound for at least five minutes to remove dirt, debris, and bacteria. Wounds that are large, deep, or bleeding nonstop should be treated by a professional.

There's no theft involved... You left the door of your car open, a guy came in and sat in it for a minute, took a picture of the bobble-head on your dashboard, and then left. Are you so petty as to press charges for that?

More like you left your car unlocked. Somebody went rifling around in your glovebox. Found nude pictures, took pictures of those, and started distributing the copies.

Mr. Tact wrote on Mar 6, 2016, 17:39:
Since age 40 or so, the only times I've slept past 7 am is either when I went to bed after 2 am or when drunk. Torture for me, is having to be working past 2-3 pm. Until I was laid off last week, I had been working 6:30 am to 3:30 pm for the last 4 years.

Sorry to hear you got laid off. Hope you got a nice long severance package and are collecting unemployment. Hope you can get something soon. Companies expect workers to work 7 to 7, or they'll replace you with an H1-B. Sucks donkey balls.

I disagree. And I don't think Tact was saying he was laid off over his preferred flexible hours. I think in general jobs are trending towards more flexible hours, at least in job markets / industries that apply to this conversation. If there's an early meeting I work 9-6, if not I work noon to 8, or even later. That's a more recent benefit in my workplace... and our H1-B employees are welcome to work those hours as well.

Yeah but The Culling does not run like ass.

Kind of bad examples, since in both Diablo and Diablo 2 the enemies did stay down during the SP campaign. Pretty sure they did in Titan Quest as well.

Diablo(1) saves persisted the current world so nothing re-spawned.

However, with Diablo 2, you had to get to a Portal/Rift to not have to fight an area again as it would re-spawn areas just like GD. Diablo 3 is the same way, you need to get to Checkpoints.

So what GD is doing aligns with modern methods of saving. And as someone else stated, you can boost your level a bit if you need to.

You're definitely thinking of Diablo 2 MP not SP... In SP they will not respawn unless you create a new game.

"you can boost your level a bit if you need to."

His comment wasn't about that. It was about a traditional SP experience free of grinding to "beat" the game. Clearing the monsters as part of the narrative.

I really dislike how there is no save (except for character), making everything constantly respawn. There is never a feeling of accomplishment on 'Saving the World', everything is still there. Protest

Ridiculous. It's like Diablo. It would be pretty hard to level up if everything you killed in one game was still dead the next time you played, not to mention boss runs for high-end loot would be a little difficult. Find the next rift before you quit and you won't have to go back over the same areas again if you don't want to. Have you ever even played Diablo or TQ?

I've logged over 800 hours in GD. Awesome PC game.

Knuckleheads. Read the official forum post. They refuted the speculation. It was a bug. Click bait nonsense. Move along. Wait for patch.

Blue included that in his writeup.

They updated Steam's UI AGAIN! Jesus. I just want a list mode. I'm sorry, I own more than 10 games, scrolling through them all is bullshit. I miss the old version.

Edit: I'm sure it's awesome like win98, but no thanks.

I just updated and restarted. Same view modes for the library are still there. Click View, top three entries should be "Games Detail" "Games List" "Games Grid". Detail shows the most games in one list.

We're really showing our age, I think, with basically zero percent of the bluesnews people using what's considered a common social program these days.

Actually Twitter use is in decline. You've held out long enough to see it both rise and fall. It peaked in the summer of 2014. 15% of Americans uses Twitter, which is still a very impressive number, but not in comparison to Facebook at 58%. LinkedIn, Snapchat, Instagram, even Google+ have higher penetration percentages than Twitter.

Seph, do you ever get the operations? Is there a point?

I get them for the little skill challenges and unlocks. I'm a whore though and pay to open every case I get. I rationalize it because I mostly plays Arms Race and GunGame normally where the drops are very infrequent... but yeah I don't want to know how many times I've spent $2.50 on a key. Disposable, super disposable, income... yay I guess.

I brought up no go areas? I see we are back at putting words in people mouths.

Ahh sorry. I see that was eraser, sorry about that.
I even checked to make sure and still messed it up because of the quotes. Truly sorry.
Oh, all of the sudden you do care about baseless accusations you utter?
Dont expect me to believe such an alibi comment.

You might be going crazy man. I always apologize if I've made a mistake.

I don't understand what problem you have with the term by the way even though it was definitely me that mentioned it It's the 1:1 translation of official reports on the situation with Albanian clans and Russian mafia-like structures (and now, Tunisian/Moroccan gangs). Heck today the government announced it checks whether the FSB is essentially financing those Russian closed communities to act as propaganda tools to destabilize Germany.... you couldn't make this shit up even if you wanted, which is why I don't. Reality is already sad enough.

Never once said these areas had anything to do with Muslims or refugees, I said we learned our lessons from flawed immigration politics back 1990 that created nogo areas and parallel societies that live in locked down ghettos essentially. Which is another thing you could find in the Bundesverfassungsschutz-Bericht I got this term from. It's an official paper brochure (more like a book, really) you can get here every now and then, updated every year.

The same things is said about neighborhoods in the UK, France, and the United States regardless of the particular minority in the area. It's just about always bullshit. It has been in the news here recently because Republican candidates were using it to scaremonger... "Soon we'll be like Europe full of "no go zones" ruled by Muslims etc." Of course left leaning organizations said they didn't exist and right leaning ones vociferously reiterated that they did. Our local "no go zones" in Detroit here used to be anywhere south of 8 Mile (like the movie). Ooooh scary areas with only black people, you're certain to get shot! When that nonsense died out it became Dearborn and Hamtramck, Muslim majority cities where Sharia is the only rule of law! (which is bs of course). Are there issues in these places? Of course. But treating the area as a pariah doesn't fix that problem, it makes it worse. As the racist pricks who caused the "white flight" around here die out things get better. People are moving back into these areas and they're being revitalized, though I guess that brings the opposite problem of "gentrification". /end ramble

Sorry that doesn't really hit a point, but gives you an idea of where I'm coming from as it relates to "no go zones". I find it hard to believe that you haven't heard of it in a contemporary context, and are only familiar with it from the early 90s. But oh well.
