• Tobacco, smoking/snus effects on atherosclerosis?

    I keep hearing that smoking increases the odds of getting heart disease and atherosclerosis. What actually is it that contributes to this? Snus contains higher nicotine but I’ve read that there is no correlation with heart disease. What’s going on here with this?

Seeing it every day...story after story after story until they end up believing these stories until it must certainly be true and they are then corrupted by the media. When I look at the comments I see the extreme vitriol that they have for trump. It’s like blood is running from their eyes and their...well...you know. Just such hatred, never seen them this out of their minds before. They went nuts with the Bush hatred and did the same with raegan, but this is another level of hatred. It’s a deep seeded sickness. Saw it with my uncle over the holidays, literally screaming at another family member saying he voted for a racist bigot who raped his first wife. The other one saying you voted for the biggest criminal in the history of politics! So it begs the question, liberals have always attacked conservatives strongly, but why has it gotten to the level where it’s affecting their lives, blood pressure, and unmanageable anger from their depths of their soul.

I’ve finally given up alcohol. I’ve blacked out for the last time. It’s just not worth it. Disappointing your family or ruining your life. How can something so dangerous be legal? I know most people can drink socially, but there’s so many people like me who just can’t have 4 drinks and stop. I’m just glad I’m finally seeing the light and not locked up for life or dead at 27. Better late than never I guess. Someone must’ve been looking down on me when I think of the 15+ super dangerous situations I’ve been in over the last 3 years alone.

  • Who will win the 2020 Presidential election?

    Who will win, and why? You can say who you would realistically like to win, but also believe that trump will win. For example, “I want Steve Bannon to be head of state and in the Oval Office, but I believe Liz Warren will dethrone trump to reliberalize Washington and continue Obama’s legacy making America great again” etc etc etc

    Hello, probably an idiotic question, but I registered my car in Colorado in June but will be living in New Jersey in 2 months. When June comes I will need to register my car again. I’m a resident of Florida with a Florida drivers license. Do I need to get a Florida license plate first? Or do I get a jersey license plate? Maybe even keep the Colorado license plate. I’m a disabled vet and need the specific license plate that reveals that. I will also be living 5 minutes from NYC if that makes any difference because that is where my job will be. Could it be more beneficial to get a state of NY license plate? Just not sure on the whole process since this is my first car that I’ve owned. I didn’t need a car overseas. Thank you

With all the dip in my mouth I go “not bad a city boy who doesn’t hunt, fish or has a pickup truck huh???” I have to stick with grizzly wintergreen and do the bottom and on my top lip every night. After a few years I’m seeking something stronger now to get that paralysis buzz again, and someone told me Kodiak was stronger and packed a stronger punch in the buzz with more nicotine. Is this true?

Is it better to just to continue drinking and have some joy in life and die at 50 from cirrhosis, or deprive myself of the only joy I get to appease society and live 20 more years. Only reason I’m on the fence is I also would hate to see my parents see the path I took. If it wasn’t for them I probably would’ve had my all out binge already in Vegas blowing all my cash and end up dead on a stripper.

No huge troubles in the country, people actually went outside and enjoyed nature and talked to people, people weren’t all on their phones all day or kids playing xbox not playing outside...simple happy times. Now it’s all about following the news religiously and seeking approval on social media thinking they’re celebrities. I’ve completely removed myself from it all and it’s such a relief. Music, movies, and morals all are **** now, and I can’t stand it.

    After getting out of the military, I will be getting my masters through my GI bill. It’s a bit of a fortunate situation as I will go full time at devry, making 4K a month. I have no more student loan debt as I paid off 35 grand in my 4 years in the military. I also don’t plan on ever having kids or a wife to spend my money on. I will be making 45K a year for three years just off the housing payments. Since it’s only one class a week I want to find a full time job making a bear minimum of 35 grand. My only bill is a phone bill of 100 bucks a month and 259 bucks a month for my corolla. I also won’t be paying a dime in rent as I will be living with my parents to save up this money. When I do finally move out when I get the degree, let’s say I have 150 grand saves up. I got burned in the past investing and lost 10 grand and am terrified to invest again. I also don’t want to lose the value of the money in inflation. How can I make a million dollars with it over a span of 20 years? I want to move to Thailand and retire at 50 and meet a nice Asian woman, and never work again. Thanks

    So I’ve gotten rid of Facebook and all social media (I’m 26). I would like to go old school with just the flip phone again and live a traditional life without these products. I’m not a weirdo, I’m still going to have a tv and laptop, I just want to ditch the smart phone and any kind of device that would take me away from my surrounding world. I miss the days where people weren’t just looking at their phones and actually talked and enjoyed the the world. Not at the becking call of every story that appears on yahoo.I’m at fault for this also. Maybe I’m just very nostalgic for the 90s since I adored my childhood and the simple times. I know it won’t be easy since I’ve used it for so long now. My main concern about losing the smart phone is the google maps. I always knew I could rely on that to get to where I’m going no matter what sticky situation or new area I was in. I’m worried that I will be out of luck and screwed frequently without the smart phone. Are there any ways to combat this that you know of? Or am I stuck with this thing until the day the final nail is slammed into my casket
