LPT: urinate in the sitting position. It improves bladder emptying.

LPT: urinate in the sitting position. It improves bladder emptying.

That is, if you are an elderly male with prostate enlargement. Also, the maximum flow rate increases and the voiding time is shorter.

Healthy males can urinate in either position. A sudden change in position can influence the quality of urination.

You can use this argument in discussions with your SO, or in the pub.

YSK: urinating sitting is better than standing

YSK: urinating sitting is better than standing

That is, at elderly men with prostate enlargement benefit from sitting down as their bladder empties better. Healthy males can urinate in either position: no difference was found in the maximum flow rate, the amount of urine left in the bladder and the voiding time.

When a fan is set to rotate, but it isn’t able to, why does it make a clicking noise?

By rotate I mean move back and forth instead of remaining pointed at one location.

LPT: Sick of people screwing you over and getting upset about it? Think “Would this bother me in my dying days” if not, then why let it bother you now?

LPT: Sick of people screwing you over and getting upset about it? Think “Would this bother me in my dying days” if not, then why let it bother you now?

A lot of people that I'd considered friends have tried slandering me and screwing me over in the past. No reason why; I'm a nice guy, will lend money, always friendly, maybe they're jealous, who cares? When people started taking advantage of my goodwill, it started to get to me a bit, and then I thought, if I looked back on my life and realised that I'd spent so much time getting upset about such petty things, I'd be pretty pissed off at myself. So now I just laugh it off, seriously, I found my gf (now ex) in bed with one of my friends, after a week or so, I just stopped caring, and everything else followed suit. I couldn't be happier and I'm looking out for number one (me) and those that matter to me, everyone else is in the background.

TIL In 1988, actor Gary Busey was in a severe motorcycle accident. Busey, not wearing a helmet, was in a coma for 33 days. In 2008, a psychiatrist determined that the accident caused brain damage and that is why he is considered to have an eerie and bizarre persona.

Don't waste your money on Rapidshare Pro or any of that malarkey. Very helpful for sharing files that are bigger than email attachments allow. Because 25MB max email attachments are for cavemen.

How Realistic Are DriverLess Cars? (From a big business perspective)

How Realistic Are DriverLess Cars? (From a big business perspective)

I know there are cars coming that are driverless, but when we consider all the tickets being given and all the accidents, that's all money that goes to certain things like hospitals and as much as I would love driverless cars, it just doesn't seem like the big business's would be about it since they would lose that money.

LPT: The only legitimately free credit reporting website recommended by the Federal Trade Commission.

LPT: The only legitimately free credit reporting website recommended by the Federal Trade Commission.

There are a lot of television advertisements for free reports of your credit. They are all scams to get either your personal information or you to purchase a useless service. There is one legitimate website that the Federal Trade Commission recommends people in the US use. That website is http://www.annualcreditreport.com

This website is free to use and will not sign you up for any services or steal your information. You are allowed 1 free credit report from a particular agency once a year. Some recommend getting a report from a different agency every 4 months. This will give you the ability to essentially get year round credit reporting.

Here is the FTC website basically explaining what I just wrote: http://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/0155-free-credit-reports
