    Yeah if you have a shiba then the best way to get to where I am is grab your earplugs, some cheese if that's your dogs thing, some jeans so you don't get scratched and just start. Flip, cheese, cheese, let them see clippers, cheese, cheese. Anytime they fuss wait for calm and cheese. Do one nail and make a biiiig fuss about what a gooddog, cheese, cheese, and done. Do this every other day until you can get two. Then three, etc. Shibas are damn smart and if the treat us of high enough value they'll eventually learn thing they hate=treat they love and acquiesce. Best of luck!

    I read through your post. I'm also an Aussie (puppy) owner. Just remember, there will be an adjustment time for both you and the dog. It really depends if you want to put the amount of work in or not. My recommendation would be to look into a [Flirt Pole](https://notesfromadogwalker.com/2012/04/24/flirt-pole/). Before you train, before you go on walks, use the flirt pole to take out some of that energy for 10 to 15 so he is more focused on you. Mental Stimulation - if you don't have the time to do more training or tricks etc try using a Kong or other feeder/puzzle game that he will need to figure out in order to get rewards. I find that mental stimulation tends to wear out my Aussie even better than just basic exercise. Also look into training places around you that do puppy agility. It would be great to start him out doing something like that once a week. It will help you immensely. Next, until you get crate training down, get baby gates and set it up so he is in a "safe" area where there is nothing for him to destroy that isn't an approved toy. For the grooming and wiping of feet. Take some time out of your day for the next couple of weeks (5 minutes) and just sit down with him on a leash holding the rag or nail clippers. Every time he touches it give him a treat. Slowly move them towards his feet. When he shows desired behavior click and treat. Then try touching his paw with the item. Then do a single touch to his nail/pad with the clippers/rag - treat. Etc. It will take a lot of patience but eventually he will start to like it. Aussies really respond to Patience and Positive reinforcement. Now for the crate training. Have you started Clicker Training? (I'll go into more if you'd like). I don't think you are in a horrible spot. And just wanting to do right by your pup has started you on a good path. :)

    When I was a kid, my dad would always get pissed about me and my sister losing stuff all the time that he started locking the stuff in his gun safe. Just random crap prone to being lost - nail clippers, sharpies, the dog, etc.

    OYS 12/27/16 35yo/6'3"/238/27% bf per navy calculator Last OYS three weeks ago. Lifting/Fitness - Grade: N/A. Took the last week and a half completely off as planned rest/recovery while on vacation at in-laws' house. Still unsure why my lower back is fucked up, but the pain continued during the week away, the upside of which is that it's probably not due to low overhangs/doorways in my house (which would basically require either moving or major remodeling to fix). Could be a squat or deadlift form issue, could be that I tweaked something months ago and just haven't rested enough yet. Seems to loosen up pretty well in the morning if I sit down for 20-30 min immediately after I get up but before working out or standing for a long time, so current plan is to wake up at 5 vs 530 and spend a half hour drinking coffee and reading/journaling/etc before checking waves and then surfing or lifting. Also gonna drop squats and deadlifts down to very low weights (relative to maxes) and build back up LP style focusing on form. Goal moving forward is to surf, ski, mountain bike, or lift every day (this is my 2017 resolution, starting a few days early), with skiing being rare this season due to current finances and mountain biking being rare for next few months due to weather. With that in mind, going to follow a PPL program, mostly barbells due to home gym, with linear increases on the main lifts as laid out in RPAlternate42's post a few months ago, in order to allow me to lift for many consecutive days during flat spells without overtraining. Also will get back in the habit of biking to work whenever there is not a clear reason not to do so. Diet - Grade: F. Planned to relax on this front during vacation, but was worse than expected. Averaged 4929 calories and 205g protein per day for last week. Goals for this week are <2800 cals and >200g protein per day. Dress/Grooming - Grade: B. Fairly on track. Have always been the best dressed in my circle of friends and friends wives are constantly asking me or my wife how to get their husbands to dress more like me. Need to get a couple things tailored and pick up a couple new items over the next month or two, but this week's action is to get a haircut which is badly overdue. Grooming otherwise decent... got home late last night after 15 hour drive and made a point of trimming nails and facial hair (stubble). In the past I would've hamstered what's one more day, office will be empty today anyway, etc, and then probably put it off another day or two. Fuck that. That said, I should've brought nail clippers and beard trimmer with me while traveling and taken care of it three days prior. Frame - Grade: D. My frame still largely sucks, but at the same time I can see bits of improvement. Had several all-day or multi hour car rides with wife in the past few weeks that seem to inevitably devolve into extended shitty comfort tests. Basically constantly coming back to accusations of "you only think about yourself, everything is about what you want, I feel like you don't care about me at all." Ive been trying to provide adequate comfort/support without being a beta pussy... I understand that she is dealing with being a new parent, post partum depression, and her father having serious health issues with a highly uncertain prognosis... but all that shouldn't completely excuse shitty behavior. At the same time, this isn't meant to be an overnight process and in light of all that I'm tempted to lean toward changing too slowly vs red pill Rambo and blowing up my marriage unintentionally. Sometimes I get the balance right, others I completely lose frame and revert back to full on beta, alternately apologizing for things that aren't my fault and losing my temper and attacking her/victim puking/throwing tantrums. Over time this is happening less and less frequently, but it still happens (especially when I'm in the car with her for hours on end). With regard to shit tests and shitty comfort tests, I often seem to be in a sort of limbo recently where I know what not to say but I don't know what to say... stfu works for a while but doesn't defuse the situation and I eventually lose frame and fuck up. Two steps forward, one step back I guess. There were some multi-day stretches during the vacation where I stayed calm, positive, and completely unfazed or unstressed by whatever shit tests, random irritating events, or anything else came up, and this is a huge improvement from previous years, hence the grade of D instead of F. I said in my last OYS that I was going to start listing my DHVs and DLVs daily and while consistency fell off at the end of the past three weeks, I did find it valuable for the week plus that I was diligent about it, so I will be resuming that going forward (but tweaking it to just list DLVs, the majority of which are frame-related). Sex - Grade: D. Not an F only due to keeping up with kino and flirting/teasing sexual comments. Have not seriously initiated in recent memory. Not entirely sure how, to be honest... previously would just start with kissing, but that's created a whole other problem as explained below. It's been years since wife gave anything but hard nos while at her parents' house, and things seem to have regressed to the point that ten second kiss attempts are immediately shot down with complaining about how I'm making her uncomfortable by always pushing to make out, etc. I'm fully aware that I created this problem... was having some success with 10SK earlier this year but was far too frequently trying to turn it into an initiation attempt, not pulling away first, etc. So now that's getting shot down too. Still trying to figure out how to unfuck years of needy half-initiations and whining about sex (alternated with weeks on end of not initiating at all, with expected results). Unsure if a serious monk mode period (i.e. No initiation whatsoever) is a good idea or not. On the plus side, I did hear my wife mutter under her breath "stop hitting on my husband, bitch" toward a our bartender while we were having lunch last week. Specifically tried for a ten second kiss when we got home (not receptive but no bitchy comments either), but wife was noticeably more pleasant toward me for the rest of that day. Parenting - Grade: B. Took a step forward here with the time off in terms of spending much more focused time than I had been playing and engaging with daughter. Getting better about proactive childcare chores (feeding/changing/etc) without being asked by wife as well. Still need to own this more, but I'm getting less nagging and bitching when taking initiative in this area (used to be every time I gave her a bottle or put her down for a nap two, I'd get "why are you doing that already? It's not time to feed her yet.") Solution seems simple though, learn her usual schedule, handle shit as warranted, DGAF about nagging/bitching wife. Clear path forward and things are coming around. Also finally finished reading "Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child," which I started reading the day my daughter was born almost 8 months ago (huge DLV here on a few levels). It bored the fuck out of me but that's no excuse. Finally committed to reading nothing else until I finished it, so now that that's happened 1) I am better equipped to lead in this area (wife has not read it and has by and large followed my lead when it comes to sleep training, with spectacularly successful results so far), and 2) I can get back to focusing on sidebar reading. Career - Grade: B. In decent shape, interviewed right before Christmas for a promotion I had applied for a couple months ago, will know in a few weeks if I got it. Depends how many people they choose to promote and how my resume/interview compares to other applicants (govt, hiring takes forever). On the plus side, I spent a weekend overhauling my resume before I applied, and now know that it's good enough to 1) get through the electronic screening and referred to the local hiring people and 2) get offered an interview. So if I don't get the position this time, I should be in good shape to get interviewed again next time there's an opening. Thought the interview went great though, would not change any answers in hindsight, which I think is a good sign. Finances - Grade: C. Need to go into serious budget mode following holidays (and it looks like wife's part time work as a 1099 consultant for her old company may be ending... her plan is to find and start a new full time job in 4 months when our daughter is a year old, which means things may be very tight until then), but we have a mutually-created plan and should be in good shape. My wife does largely control the finances, but she does a great job in this area and is historically far better with money than me. This is obviously something to fix in the long term, but imo the time is not right for me to demand control right now. Immediate action is just monitor all accounts/balances daily, and work with wife to live as frugally as possible for the next few months. We are currently in far better shape than ever before in terms of debt/savings/etc and that is 100% due to her leadership in that area, in spite of blue pill me. Social Life/Hobbies - Grade: C. Maintaining in this area for now. Performed some holiday tunes at the office party with a few coworkers, now that that's over I need to keep up getting together with them outside of work to play. Long term goal is paid gigs, short term is just playing with other people regularly. Hobbies/social life otherwise on track. Action items for the week: 1. Lift or surf every day 2. <2800 kcal, >200g protein 3. Get a haircut 4. Daily frame review in journal 5. Monitor all account balances daily 6. STFU, STFU, STFU

  • Marta Toy

    I have a problem with picking the skin on my fingers, my nails, and my back to a lesser degree. One time I stopped picking at my fingers and nails for at least six months (I can't remember if it affected my back). I'm currently trying again with the same method, but with a few tweaks, so let me tell you about what I do: **The trick is you have to really want nice, healthly looking hands. If you don't want it, I don't think it would work as well.** 1. Hand lotion and cuticle cream/oil. I found that I picked more when my skin was dry and my cuticles weren't taken care of. You don't want a hand lotion that is too waxy and stays on the top of your skin. Ideally it will soak in and soften/moisturize your skin. My favourite has argan oil in it, but it's something you'll have to experiment with to find what works best. As for cuticle stuff, I have an oil/cream combo, but lots of people swear by Bliss Kiss nail oil. It has jojoba oil in it. I want to try it eventually. 2. Use a nail file instead of clippers, even if you want short nails instead of long nails. Clippers are more likely to fracture your nails where you didn't want them to (at least, I have this problem). Also, and maybe you don't have this issue, but a lot of people who pick at their fingers will use clippers on their skin as well. I know I do this. Not having the clippers in your hands takes away this temptation. Filing your nails will keep the edges smooth and even, and prevent them from splitting (nail oil also helps with this). Rough edges can lead to picking. 3. Find a good nail blog or two that touch on nail health and preventing nails from breaking and follow their advice (even if you plan on keeping short nails, the advice will help you keep the edge smooth and free of chipping, flaking, and splitting). My favourites are Simply Nailogical and Loodie Loodie Loodie (even though she doesn't actively post anymore). Their main focus is polish, and it's cool if you're not into that because they also talk a lot about nail health. They'll talk about keeping your nails out of water as much as you can (also helpful for the skin because it can dry it out and cause rough spots and pruning, which might lead to picking), lotions and nail oils, nail file types, etc. Lots of good advice. 4. Paint your nails. Remove the polish and repaint once it starts chipping. If you don't want color on your nails, bear with me. There is matte clear polish out now, and although I haven't tried it myself I feel like it would look pretty close to natural nails (not too glossy). I'd recommend using at least a base coat (polish specifically marked for base coats) and the matte top coat, maybe a regular clear coat in between the base and top coats (I'll get to why shortly). If you just can't bring yourself to put any polish on your nails, I understand and I'm not judging you, but since this step is the main thing keeping me from picking my nails, I'm not sure how effective the rest would be without it; however, YMMV and it just depends on your willpower and your investment in the rest of the steps. *Why this works for me: I am a perfectionist. I cannot stand chips in my nail polish. I also have weak nails that bend and split easily. Picking at my skin and nails, scratching my back too hard, all those cause chips in my nail polish, bending, and splitting. Painting my nails takes about an hour minimum (usually longer because I like to get fancy). Base coat ~15 min to dry, 1st color coat ~30 min to dry (prevents bubbles), 2nd color coat then a fast drying top coat immediately after (prevents scuffs and sheet marks), and last I clean up with a paint brush and pure acetone (this step is supposed to be after the 1st color coat but I always forget). As soon as my nails start noticeably chipping I have to remove the polish and repaint them. Using the tips above and everything I've learned from those nail blogs, my last nail polish lasted two weeks without chipping. In fact it hadn't started chipping when I removed it, but they were Halloween themed so I repainted my nails after Halloween. *Why you need multiple coats even if it's just clear polish: Simply Nailogical explains this really well. Multiple coats help protect your nails from breaking. Even if you aren't planning on growing out your nails to the breakage danger zone, a base coat and top coat helps the polish stay on longer without chipping. Bonus: all those layers keep your nails warmer (I noticed this earlier this week when I had to go outside with naked nails and I couldn't NOT be aware of how much colder my nails felt than usual). 5. Don't get overwhelmed! I know these are a lot of steps, and there is a lot of information on nail health on the internet. Just do what you feel comfortable with, then add on as you get in a groove with it. It's really not that much work once you're doing it. All of the things I've mentioned I feel like have been an integral part of my success. Some of the steps are important for the success of other steps. Why it failed after 6 months that one time: It didn't, not really. It was in the middle of a changing season (hot then cold, A/C then heater, drying out the air) and when I visited my parents I forgot to bring my cuticle oil. Being on vacation, my routine was thrown off and I didn't even remember to use hand lotion once or twice a day. To top it all off, I painted my nails with a cheap polish without using a base coat, so it started chipping after a day or so. All of this combined dried my nails out and they started splitting, my skin got dry spots, my cuticles rebelled, and I was really stressed out because my parents have that effect on me. So now I'm starting over. I honestly couldn't tell you why exactly I don't pick when my nails are painted. It's something I noticed one day. Maybe it has something to do with the ends of my nails feeling different, because I barely even start subconsciously picking when my nails are painted and not chipped to hell and back. I'm really hoping it's something that other people can experience, too. I'm so done with being embarrassed when people look at my hands. I'm sorry this was so long, but I really hope at least some of my advice helps you or someone else trying to kick this habit. Let me know if I can help more, explain something better, or if you just want to talk nails!

  • Samantha Hilll

    Rod Stickland never getting AS recognition. Not even when he led the league in AST. Vernon Maxwell and Gay Payton getting Horace Grant and Chuck Person injured, because the last two tried to break them up in a fight. Sam Cassel not being in the starting 5 with the Rockets because he had to piss just before tip off. Twice. Vonteego Cummings, named after two cars his father owned at the time of his birth: Volkswagen and a Ford Montego. Marvin Barnes snorting cocaine on the bench during games. And returning to play in the same game in which he dislocated a kneecap. Marvin Barnes, again, getting the nickname Tire Iron after attacking a teammate with one during his college days. Dave Bing playing at such a high level while: almost getting blinded in one eye as a kid after falling on a nail. And returning to play after almost getting his retina detached during an nba game. Charles Oakley punching then Clipper McInnis because of a personal dispute. And that being while Oakley was on the court holding a ball, and McInnis being in a courtside seat. Rodman getting a six game suspension for headbutting a ref. How many games would it get you nowadays? Mo williams missing a game due to pubic symphysitis. Look it up. And even funnier, find out how you can injure a pubic symphysis. Chris Paul once had a naaaaasty dunk on DHoward. Olden Polynice getting arrested afterimpersonating a police officer. In HS, Lebron wore Nikes at the Adidas ABCD Camp and Adidas at the Nike All-American Camp. Qyntel Woods handing over his basketball card as identification, after being pulled over by Police Officers who smelled marijuana fumes coming from his car. George McCloud missing a vital playoff game with the Pacers in 1992 because he injured his ankle, because held his it in a "funny way" while talking on the phone. Elliot not wanting his house in SA back after selling it to Rodman. He liked the house, but hey, it's Rodman we're talking about. Scott Pollard: "The Pistons, because when I was there they had that gay-ass horse on it." on which team had the best uniform redesign in years. BJ Tyler was selected by the Raptors in the expaqnsion draft. He actually retired shortly after: "Tyler accidentally fell asleep with a pack of ice on his knee, severely damaging it and thus losing all the speed for which he was famed, and subsequently had to retire." Charles Barkley taking a paycut with the Rockets so they could sign Pippen. Always the gentleman, Pippen thought the first round exit that season with the Rockets wasn't his own fault. According to Pippen, Barkley didn't show him the desire to win also adding Barkley had a "sorry fat butt." Conrad McRae fainting just before his first game in a 10 day contract with the Nuggets. He wasn't accustomed to the thin air in Denver. Sad thing is, docters later discovered a hearthailment, and advised him not to play ball anymore. McRae later died during basketball practice in 2000. One of the saddest NBA stories the past decade imo. Woody Allen on Manute Bol: “Manute Bol is so skinny they save money on road trips. They just fax him from city to city." Qrich, then a Sun, about roadkill during their latest roadtrip: We killed wolves, bucks, only thing we missed is a Grizzly." Charles Barkley bearhugging KJ into a dislocated shoulder after a win in the 90's. KJ missed 2 weeks. Marv Albert on the Hawks: "They have a great bunch of outside shooters. It's just too bad they play all of their games indoors." Scott Pollard after suffering a stomach strain, while not playing: "I'm 36. I could have waved the towel too aggressively for all I know." Van Exel knowing how to defend the Malone/Stockton pick n roll: Bring a bat to the game and kill one of them. Tim Duncan being a very good swimmer, who could've become a professional. He quit swimming after the training zessions were relocated to the ocean instead of pools, since Tim's afraid of sharks. Kwame Brown's daughter's name is Kwameeri. Rasheed's daughter is named Rashiyah. Gilbert Arenas: "When I was new in the NBA the team veterans convinced me to shave, you know, down there, because they said the hair stinks. I used my girlfriend's razor, which was rusty and gave me keloids. The doctor prescribed medicine to dab on, but I just poured it all over. Three days later I woke up screaming. The skin was burnt off my scrotum, down to my crack, everything -- just raw flesh. I still had to run and play, so I used a numbing spray for a month until it healed. Now I use clippers." Sonics coach Bob Hill banning players from talking to each other during practice. Darius Miles being whistled for a defensive 3 second violation, while stopping to tie his shorts while standing under the basket. Lionel Simmons injured. Nothing serious: DNP-tendonitis in wrists from overexposure to Game Boy. One year later: Derrick McKey DNP-tendonitis in wrists from overexposure to Game Boy. Reggie Evans checking in late during the second half of a game. He had to take an urine test at half time but couldnt produce. Coleman injuring his knee during the shooting of a rebounding match against a 'Joe' on the TV show Pros vs. Joes. Kedrick Perkins missing time due to an injury last year: "I was asleep. I guess whoever put my bed together didn't put it together right when I moved, so one side of my bed fell. My bed was tilted, so I got out of my bed to go push down on the other side. And when I was about getting ready to push down on the other side, the headboard started coming in. So I tried to push the headboard back so it wouldn't fall over. My foot was under the bed and the other side of the bed fell on my foot." Mark Cuban on Finley for Ming trade rumors: "I don't even think Yao Ming is worth a top-10 pick." Indiana trading pg Don Buse to the Blazers. Not for another player, but for the Blazers' Marketings Manager Jon Spoelstra's services as a Management Consultant. For one week in 1983. Rick Adelman on Reggie Evans' flopping: "This guy is taking it to a whole new level. He goes down when the air conditioning comes on." Rip Hamilton's nickname coming from this: "Hamilton inherited his nickname from his father, who used to rip his diapers as a baby." Too good to be true. Andrew Bynum adressing the media after a game with his mouthpiece still in. 2001: John Starks missing a game because of a twisted testicle. Yes I know it hurts. Testicular torsion they called it. Julius Hodge sleeping on Denver's gym floor the night before training camp started. Jason Williams got a tattoo in Japanese signs, saying "**** you". Donyell Marshall after buying his number 42 from teammate Mengke Bateer: "Those Europeans, they know how to negotiate." Bateer is Mongolian. Sheed, after being pulled over by police and asked if there was any weed in his car: "No, we smoked it all up." Bimbo Coles. Always wondered why you would go by that nickname, untill I found out his real name: Vernell Eufaye. "Sean Elliot and Alonzo Mourning both lost kidneys to the same anti-inflamatories that killed boston celtic Reggie Lewis." George Karl after his bucks lost a game: "I'm not criticizing the referees at all, but it was a poorly officiated game." Finley on losing Wang Zhizhi: "It would be good to have him, but we're not going to miss him. We'll find the two or three points from somewhere else." Dajuan Wagner coming back after having a part of his colon removed. He had injury upon injury before doctors discovered he suffered from colitis. He could've been one of the better scorers in the league imo. Arenas before Arenas?

    **BUY NOW** - Crib sheets: At least two. Three if you don't like doing laundry. - Waterproof fitted crib pad: Minimum one. I would get two - more often than not, if the crib sheet is soiled enough to wash, so is the crib pad. - Baby socks (0-3 months): Given your EDD and the time of year, I would buy some. Not a ton - ~6 pairs should be plenty, and they tend to come in 3~6 pair packs. - Sleep sack: I would get another couple. Spit-up and blowouts are inevitable, and if you have a kiddo that *needs* the swaddle/sack to sleep more than 20 minutes, then you're going to want extras. HOWEVER - I would only buy one, max two others right now. I put it in this category because I think you'll want more than one initially, but you also won't know how your baby likes to be swaddled [if at all! I've met exceptions] until she's here. Buy another of a different style from what you have now; once you know what she likes, buy another couple. - Baby bottles: if you're formula-feeding, you want these at the ready. If you're planning on breastfeeding, I would still have a couple. *Just in case.* I didn't buy any and, when BF flopped, I had to rush out and buy bottles when I really wasn't ready to be out and about. Now, one protip: like the sleep sacks, buy a few varieties. Do your research, but still buy a few. Babies can be *very very picky* about their bottles. Buy a couple of a couple different brands, and then, once you know what she likes, fill in as needed. - Bottle Brush - Boppy nursing pillow: Even as a FFer, I found this useful to have. Made feeding easy (even with a bottle!) and served as a good prop for tummy time. **BUY WITHIN FIRST FEW WEEKS** - Thermometer: This comes down to personal preference. Personally, when mine was a *baby*, I found rectal to be the easiest and most reliable. Once they're a little older, temporal (forehead) is also reliable, although I always double-checked with rectal when they were little. Tympanic (ear) is *ok*, but technique is everything with this one and they can be hit-and-miss. Get a standard rectal for now and be done with it. - Newborn to toddler tub: You won't be washing baby immediately; the umbilical stump has to fall off first. But you should be able to do a proper bath within a couple weeks, and although it's *possible* to do it without an infant tub, trust me when I say that it's MUCH easier. - Humidifier: They *are* very helpful, but the main purpose is to ease congestion. There is no way to know when you'll wind up needing one. I wouldn't rush out to buy one until you really have a good gauge of your baby's needs; some benefit from day one, others only when they're sick. I would FOR SURE get one, but other things on your list are more important at the moment. **BUY EVENTUALLY / ONCE NEEDED** - Changing pad: personally, I liked having one, but you don't *really* need one. Beds are great for changing babies - heck, you can even use the floor. Throw down a blanket/burp cloth underneath kiddo if you're worried about *nastiness*. But, if money is tight, you can totally skip the changing pad. - Changing pad cover(s): See above. If/when you get a changing pad, I'd recommend having two covers; blowouts are inevitable, and depending on consistency, that means *crumblies.* But you can totally use a blanket/towel/whatever as a substitute in a pinch. - Boppy newborn lounger: useful, but not necessary - Car seat protector: useful, but not necessary - Baby nail clippers: use your teeth. Yes, really. I mean, if you have $5 laying around and you really don't need to spend it elsewhere, then go for it, but I had two pairs of these things and I basically never used them. Baby nails are small, and they're squirmy little buggers. Using my teeth was a lot easier. **DON'T BUY AT ALL** - Shopping cart and high chair cover: Some parents feel very strongly about this. Personally, I think they're completely unnecessary. Most stores have sanitation/cart wipes if you're really feeling worried (true story? germs are everywhere.) But, in the long run, the shopping cart cover thing should be very low on your priority list. As for the high chair cover, girl, you're going to be wiping that thing down anyway. - Car seat canopy: Eh. If your car seat has a fold-down canopy, then you don't need this. It's cute and trendy to have one and if you're paranoid about privacy, ok, but you don't need it. Many newborns sleep like logs. **PERSONAL PREFERENCE** - Pack n play + pac n play mattress: This is purely personal preference and comes down to your lifestyle. I found having a pack and play in our living room to be a *lifesaver*. Mine basically didn't sleep in his crib except at night for the first few months; he was in his pack and play. But, again, I don't know your living situation/layout/etc. If your layout is spread out and you think you'll be hanging out outside of whever baby sleeps, then I would want one asap. If your layout is more condensed and constant back and forth to the crib isn't an issue, then I would wait and see. BUT, these can be pricey. So I would set aside $X for it now, just in case. - Hands free breast pump bra: I'll let an EBFer comment on this, as I wouldn't know where to put it. - Baby blankets: I would skip buying large quantities of these and, if you don't have some good wraps/swaddles on hand, buy those instead. The giant fluffy baby blankets are actually *not* recommended to use at a young age anyway. If warmth is your concern, stock up on some warmer clothing. - Glider/rocking chair: I survived without one - used my computer chair when rocking was needed. If you have the extra cash and have knocked most everything else off the list, it won't *hurt* to have one, but know that you can survive without one. Some people will swear up and down that their glider was the best thing they ever bought; it all comes down to baby. Personally, I wouldn't drop a ton of money on one until you have other stuff taken care of.

    Ugh, putting me on the spot like this. Hmm...well I guess I'd start with something that wouldn't cause permanent damage. So I'd probably take some jumper cables and a car battery. Then attach them to their body until the bursts of electricity caused marks to form on their....sensitive bits. Having prior lit a cigar as celebration I would then proceed to put out the cigar out where the marks were. After that I'd put my foot down on their head and then grab a chunk of their hair. Then yank as hard as I absolutely could and tear out the chunk that I had in my hands. Soon after that I'd take a couple metal tooth picks and spread out each of their fingers. Now some people would shove them in hard but I'm the kind of guy to slowly press in each one individually into their hands, getting them as deep as I could while them holding them before starting to rotate them around inside of their individual fingers. After that I think I'd take a lighter and put it under their hands, keeping it under them lit until I could smell the scent of melting flesh. Now, back to the tooth picks. After yanking them out I'd start pushing them through their cheeks, stopping about half way through so I could essentially make their cheeks look like Pinhead's. Let's keep it at the head for now, but more specifically the ears. I'd take the a pair of nail clippers (Or if I can't fit then a pair of shears) I'd put the lobe of their ears into the clippers and squeeze down on them slowly until I severed their ear lobes. Though I suppose some people don't have ear lobes, so instead I shall use scissors to cut three lines into their ears at the top most part. After this....I think I'd just stand back and listen to them gargle on their own blood for a short while before straddling their chests. At this point I'd do something a tad more primal. Taking their nose into my hand I'd twist back and forth until I could no longer hear it snap from the cartilage being broken. Now, holding their head back so they'd essentially be water boarded by their own blood I'd slam my fist into their jaw (Removing the bottom most tooth picks from their cheeks so I wouldn't cut myself up too bad.). One hit after another, each one producing a crack to fill the room with the sound of the beating along with their gurgling, I wouldn't stop until I felt the first cut of their teeth on my fist. Now, I think after this I'd get off their chest and elevate their head so they won't end up choking on their own blood (I'm a good person.). Now after this I'd take a large knife, unnecessary except for the sole reason to cause more panic to go through their heads. I'd then slowly drag it across the length of their forearms, leaving shallow but painful cuts along them. After that I think I'd move back to the hands and slide the knife through it before slowly twisting it back and forth, once again cutting my way out by going downwards to their fingers. After this I'd hold their hands in my own and press backwards on them until I heard the sweet sound of them popping out of their sockets. Mmm, music to the ear. Y'know, I've hardly even cut anything off. So I think I'll press my foot down on their hands and yank one of their fingers off. Now, after all the light stuff is out of the way I think we'll have some REAL fun. First, I'd put them into a nice sturdy chair and tie their feet to the most sturdy thing I could find in the house. After this I'd walk away then slowly walk back in, dragging a large sledgehammer behind me. I'd make sure to do this as suspenseful as possible so I could hear their gargled "NO, NO GOD PLEASE NO!" escape through their panicked lips. Then, I'd take the hammer and swing it downwards at full force, trying to break their leg in half at the knee caps. But if it doesn't work in the first swing I doubt it could take much more so I'll just press downwards on their knees until I felt it give way completely. Only on one knee though, it lessens the fun if they couldn't at least partially stand. Now...let's see what we should do next. OH, we have a whole torso that has gone pretty much untouched. Y'know what...let's do something inventive. So I'll take the scalpel that I have in my first aid kit and make a good sized incision into their chest, just a bit too small to fit fingers into. Though of course....I'd make them fit by forcing them into their chest. I'd then try my best to get a good grip on one of their ribs to snap it off and pull it out. But if I can't I guess I'll just have to scissor my fingers to open up the hole a good portion before I close the wound back up. At this point....I'd probably be a little bored I doubt he'd be able to do much than gurgle, much less scream for me. So now we'll have the coup de grâce. Now unfortunately I am not a weeaboo so I don't own a sword. Instead I am a responsible adult who owns a machete. So after letting him watch me sharpen it until it is as sharp as I could make it. Then this is where I'm gonna be using F U L L F O R C E! Using all of my strength with one thrust I'd try my best to completely impale them on the blade. After this I'd grip the blunt end of the blade and press down as hard as I could, pulling it down until it's cut him in half from where I started. Don't worry about that pelvis kids, I'll make sure to saw through it. (The machete is serrated. Though if I couldn't make it through in time I'd skip to the next part.) Now, I gotta work fast with this one. Grabbing them by the back of the head...I'd just stare at them. Gaze into their barely open eyes until the life drained out of him, making sure that the last thing that they saw was the emotionless expression on my face, letting them know that their painful death meant nothing to me. So how was that? Wasn't the ABSOLUTE most sadistic torture I could conjure but I was on the spot.

    Reformed nail biter here: i would suggest you open up a conversation about her nail biting. First of all, I do think you need to put the nail biting into perspective. While it seems gross and annoying to you, those are more your hang ups than anything. She should be conscientious of what she touches or does after her fingers have been in her mouth, but realistically, people who kiss or play with their dogs are more "unhygienic" than the people who bite their nails. Unless she has a contagious illness, nothing from her mouth is that dangerous to you. But i can still understand the ick factor. i say this as someone who has been on the receiving end of criticism about biting nails, the best way to approach her might be just to say "hey, this is definitely more my issue but would you be open to doing something about your nailbiting? I think I just have some hangups about the persistent sound/seeing your fingers look like that." I would find out if it's something that she herself has wanted to change or do something about it. Keep the conversation casual, but ask her why she thinks it's become such a habit for her? Keep the tone exploratory, as if you just want to learn more about it. As long as she's not feeling attacked, I do think it's okay mention that nailbiting seems gross to other people and then it might be a social hindrance. But keep in mind that you are basically speculating about how it comes across to others until you've actually heard someone else complain about it. I had a few reasons for why I was always biting my nails: The most obvious was anxiety and stress. It's no coincidence that I stopped biting my nails only after I finished school. I just used to have so much on my mind all the time in regards to homework, art critiques, discussions, social interactions....that doing something busy with my hands or mouth became inextricably linked to my thought processes. If my mind was critically thinking, my teeth were biting. If I was listening to something or watching something intently, my teeth were biting. So that explains why I was doing it so frequently, and why I was doing it so thoughtlessly. If changing the circumstances that caused me to bite my nails wasn't possible, then the only alternative was just to give my body something else to do. The other HUGE reason I bit my nails, and couldn't grow them out, was because I had extremely shitty nails. They were already very weak and breakable to begin with, and on top of that, i work with my hands, and wash them a lot (being an artist and working in a restaurant). Even if I tried to grow them out, it was inevitable that one or several would break and then look shitty anyway and so then there was no real incentive to stop biting them. I would chew and chew at rough snaggy ends because they were always bothering me/getting caught and torn on things, etc. I switched up some things in my diet (seaweed! Or prenatal vitamins! Seaweed was easier to come by working in a sushi restaurant) and nail maintenance routine (carrying a nail file/clippers in my purse, or keeping them in my car/desk/places i would frequently bite them). The result is that gradually my nails grew stronger, and the incentive to not bite was stronger. And i had better tools to fuss with than my teeth. And lastly, I started anticipating situations where I knew I would bite nails, and give myself alternatives. Personally, I had to realize i manage stress better with some therapy, meds or even just yoga. I bring healthy snacks to movies, use other things to keep my mouth or hands busy. So, if your wife is anything like me, solving her nailbiting is going to be a multi step process. See if she A) wants to do anything about it B) what makes her do it and modify those situation and behaviors and C) find out how can she improve the maintenance of her nails to allow them to grow out.

    There's a lot of things I wish they did differently, but at the same time, there's a lot that I wish I did differently with them, too. I wish they would've looked further into the reason why I "suddenly changed" when I was a kid; I might've told them why, but then again, probably not--the acknowledgement that they saw it would've been nice though, instead of a casual quip twelve years later, "Yeah, we wondered why you were so different--going to a new school was the worst thing for you!" No, it wasn't that, thanks for playing though. I wish they would've seen that I was hurting myself in an obvious way; I used to cut the skin off the undersides of my hands and bottoms of my feet with nail clippers. I wish that my mom didn't look so pissed off at me when my aunt *did* notice my hands and asked me why I was doing it--all I said was, "I don't know." I wish that they'd taken my depression seriously, instead of chiming in with their "words of wisdom": Mom: "I get sad sometimes too," Dad: "Well shit, everyone feels that way!" Pretty sure I wouldn't call it "sad", and no, everyone doesn't feel this way. Even if they did, so what? Everyone gets headaches, doesn't mean mine doesn't hurt. Oh, and Mom? When your then 15 year-old daughter tells you she's suicidal, and has been since she "suddenly changed" six years earlier (no correlation there though /s), your response should not be to barge into her room with a LOADED GUN held to your head, look her in the eyes, and solemnly say "I love you", thus forcing your daughter to "talk you down" from an act you were never going to actually do and were only pantomiming in an effort to "teach" her how much "it'd hurt you" if she killed herself. Lesson learned--don't tell Mom about your "sad" feelings. But I also wish that I had been more in tune to their crumbling marriage when it was happening; I know I was 13-14, but maybe I could've done something--maybe I could've been someone they could talk to. I wish I'd spent more time with my dad in the months right after the divorce. He needed me, and I just shut down. I wish that I hadn't been such a massive bitch to my mom. There were times where she (don't wanna say "deserved it", but) deserved it, and I didn't say shit then--I just blew up at the small things and made her life difficult when it didn't need to be, just because I could. In the same vein, I wish she'd take responsibility for her part in it; I've taken my responsibility, but she seems pretty content to blame me for those bad years. But she loves me the best she knows how. She was raised in a home where she was *literally forgotten* for two days at eight years old, left behind in the house when her parents moved. And though she has a hard time with certain deeper emotions (like telling me she's proud of me, or that she thinks I'm good at things, or talking about anything bad that has ever happened, ever), I know she's there. If I need help, if I have a question, if I just want someone to hug me, she's there. And deep down, or maybe not so deep down, I know she is sorry about all the bad times, and I know she knows her blame in it--even if she won't say it. I know my dad knows where he went wrong; getting frisky with me on this past Christmas Eve was a huge mistake--I know he's sorry. I know he wishes he would've spent more time with me *before* the divorce, like I wish I would've spent more time with him after. Maybe if I was there more, he wouldn't have done what he did; maybe the thing that makes parents *not* want to touch their kids would've still been there, if I'd been around more. I know he regrets all the times he asked me for favors then whined that they weren't perfectly executed, like I regret all the times he asked me to do stuff for him and I refused, either because I was too lazy, too self-centered, or just didn't want to. It was a lack of effort, on all of our parts--effort to hear, to relate, to be close. And when we tried to put in the effort it was either too late or just not good enough. Now we have a "let's pretend that never happened and act like we've always been good" thing going on, and being blind is working for us. At least, it is right now. I guess that's the best any of us can ask for

    I'm a little late, but I hope I might be able to help a little. Last year I hatched a chick with no eyes and a slight cross beak. Due to special circumstances, I got really attached to this chick and couldn't bear to cull, so she now lives inside as a house pet. [Here is an album](https://m.imgur.com/gallery/NTuUT) that I created several months ago showing her growth until about two months of age. It appears that Murdock's beak was slightly worse than your chick's at the same age. Being blind, Murdock had additional challenges to overcome, because it's difficult for her to find her food. But she is able to eat with only minor adjustments made to accommodate her disabilities. [Here is a short video](https://youtu.be/u6Sr35AEaqM) showing her beak tonight. As you can see, the cross became more pronounced as she grew and her beak grows longer than it should. She's a bit of a messy eater, but still gets by pretty easily. I would consider her cross beak to be a mild to moderate case, but it's easily managed with only a little extra work. Here are a few things I've learned: -She does best with a food dish that's open and deep enough to bury her beak into. Because of her blindness she is very inaccurate, so a chick with normal vision may not need a large dish, but one that's deep enough to submerge the beak is still helpful. Murdock scoops her food from below, similar to the way she drinks, and she is able to eat well, although she does waste a lot of food. -She cannot graze. I suspect this would be the case even if she were not blind. Her beak cannot clamp down on food like a normal bird, so she cannot break off pieces of grass. She is also unable to eat most treats, and she cannot pick up food from the ground or any other solid surface, because she cannot grip it well. I don't believe she is able to consume grit well, so I feel better sticking with her food crumbles for easy digestibility. -Her beak grows just like toenails and requires occasional trimming. If your girl requires trimming, you will be terrified the first time, but it will get easier. The first time I trimmed Murdock's beak I used my dog's nail clippers and that wasn't a great idea. I took off a bit much and it bled like crazy! She was fine, but I was traumatized and let it go way too long before I tried again. The second time, I used human toenail clippers and trimmed slowly, and one side at a time. I also used a flashlight to shine through the beak so I could see the blood supply inside. The blood supply in Murdock's beak extends much farther than I would have guessed, so now I leave her beak a bit longer and trim more frequently. I haven't hit blood since I switched to this method. It sounds to me like you have a small hobby flock for egg laying. I suspect you aren't planning to breed, but if you are, I would strongly advise you not to hatch eggs from this girl. As others have mentioned, breeding a bird with a crossed beak is a bad idea. You might be correct that it was caused by injury, but you also might not be. If you are wrong and end up with a chick with a much more serious condition, will you be more prepared to cull than you are now? I've had a few chicks with very severe facial deformities and it's absolutely heartbreaking. Your chick is eating and drinking and has only a mild case, so it would be perfectly reasonable to keep her as a layer. But her offspring may not be that lucky. Finally, regarding the spot on this girl's beak; I couldn't see it well enough to tell what it is. Is it just a darker spot on her beak or did you actually see blood. Several of my chicks have had darker spots in the same place on their beaks, and I worried about injury as well. Unless you actually saw blood, my guess is that the spot is just darker pigmentation and not an injury at all. [Here are some photos](http://imgur.com/bpYPQzx) of one of my chicks with a similar spot. At a day old, it was a spot, but expanded as he grew and he had a very dark beak for several weeks. Eventually he lost the pigment entirely (the dark stuff at the base of his comb in the adult photo is dirt). I've had other chicks with spots more similar in size to yours but those pics are on another device and not accessible at the moment.

    If cost isn't an issue, then one of the all-in-one kits should get you just about everything you need: Resistance meter, micro screwdrivers, pliers, coil wrapping tool/mandrels, scissors and some tweezers(Preferably ceramic tipped) If you're tight on cash, there's a few routes to go. If there's a Harbor Freight nearby, you can get most of what you need there. * Micro screwdriver kit: Most of these kits have screwdrivers in the most commonly wrapped coil sizes so that you can actually use the screwdriver as a mandrel for wrapping coils. 2, 2.4, 3 and 3.5 mm are all the most common size of coils, and I have found that I can wrap better coils than the kits can. [Here's the set I use](http://www.harborfreight.com/hand-tools/screwdrivers/6-piece-precision-screwdriver-set-47823.html). You can find these on Amazon as well, and for not a lot of money. * Scissors: Most of the "All-in-One" kits are lacking in some way, and it's usually the scissors. The little fold-out scissors that are included couldn't cut through a wet kleenex. A good, smaller size set of scissors can be found at WalMart, HB, or Amazon and bonus if you're left-handed! You can get a set made just for your backwards hands!(I'm a lefty. I hate trying to use regular scissors for precision work!) Resistance Meter: Also referred to as an Ohm reader *(shudders)*. If you're ever going to get into mechs, this is a necessity. Hell, when first building, it's a nice thing to have to check your build for shorts before you slap it on your mod. You can spend as low as [$5 usd](https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01FS2Y406/ref=pd_sbs_469_13?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=5K6W92TH8TT367A5Q751), or $35-$45 dollars for a [Tab unit](https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01LS9YGEC/ref=pd_sim_469_86?ie=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=C1CSTD9YF0C1QC1FKXEW) that can actually fire the coil to work out hot spots. Finally, cotton and wire. This has been bandied about ad nauseum about which type of wire and gauge is best, and the debate on wicking materials still comes up from time to time. So, I'll give you my two cents and leave it at that. Wire: 26 gauge kanthal. Why? It's easy to work with, provides good flavor and doesn't need to be run at insane wattage levels for great results. If high wattage vaping is your thing, get some 24 gauge. Better still, get both! I like 26 and 28 gauge(Twisted wire YAY!), you'll find your preference as you go. I didn't care for 24 gauge as it made the vape a bit too warm for my liking. Cotton for wicking? I swear by Labo Puffs. No "Fresh cotton" taste, easy to work with and lasts for EVAR. I'm still using the 120 pad bag I bought over a year ago, and it'll still be another six months before I need more. Here's the [Amazon link](https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B000TCEXOS/ref=olp_f_primeEligible?ie=UTF8&f_new=true&f_primeEligible=true) for the Prime eligible pads. There are cheaper sellers, but they are in Japan and it can take a week to get to you. What's left? Wire cutters, of course! Nail clippers work alright, but something [like this](https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00FZPDG1K/ref=pd_bxgy_194_img_2?ie=UTF8&refRID=TKAY414X9Q0SKAKH78G6&th=1) works even better! There's my suggestions and whatnot. Take or leave what you will, and welcome to the world of building!

    **ALRIGHT. BUCKLE UP. I'M GONNA TELL YOU EVERYTHING I KNOW AND LOVE BASED ON MY OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCES.** **MOISTURIZE** * **Hand cream:** The best thing ever. I have tried so many it's not even funny but I find the one that I like the best is good old [glysomed] (http://www.glysomed.com/products/hands/hand-cream/). Try different ones out for yourself! I apply it quite often because my hands are really, really dry a lot of the time. * **Cuticle oil:** Oh boy I don't know where I'd be without this stuff. It keeps the skin around my nails healthy and prevents it from splitting, cracking, and peeling. I use [this miracle right here] (http://h-e-a-t.com/nail-repair-serum-with-10-precious-oils-10-ml-4-fl-oz.html). Again, experiment! See what you like best. **CUTICLE CARE** * **Push them back!** If you find that your cuticles are too long and are bothering you, soak your hands in some warm water to soften your cuticles and then gently push them back with a cuticle pusher. This doesn't really need to be done, it's just a personal preference because my cuticles are ridiculous and need to be tamed. * **DON'T CUT THEM!** Unless it's absolutely necessary and BE VERY CAREFUL when you do because you may cut a little too far and end up wounding yourself and this will most likely cause an icky infection. ALSO, if you do cut your cuticles make sure you use an actual cuticle cutter, DO NOT use nail clippers! They're too big and bulky and you'll end up cutting way more than your cuticle! **OTHER THINGS** * **Avoid metal nail files** I heard this somewhere and I'm not actually sure if it's true but apparently the gritty surface of a metal nail file causes nail damage. I don't use metal ones because they make the tips of my nails a lot weaker and I notice that a lot more nail particle comes off than usual. Instead, I use a glass nail file. It doesn't seem to weaken my nails and you can wash them no problem. Personal preference! * **Avoid acetone:** Ah acetone, the bane of my existence. It absolutely RUINS my nails EVERY TIME. Again, this is just personal preference but a lot of people find that acetone weakens and dries out their nails and causes them to become very brittle. Acetone is found in almost all nail polish removers but you can buy ones that are non-acetone! * **MY SAVING GRACE** Alright, I think I started biting my nails as soon as I grew in my teeth and it was so bad I was convinced that I would just have to live with icky, bitten nails the rest of my life. It wasn't until I stopped biting and started using [this miracle in a bottle] (http://www.ulta.com/nail-envy-nail-strengthener-original-formula?productId=xlsImpprod5180283) that I started to believe again. It has helped my nails SO MUCH. They're longer, stronger, and just the greatest they've ever been. With most things though, the magic doesn't just happen over night, you have to stick with it but man are the results amazing! Some people may find this formula a little harsh though because it does contain formaldehyde (yes, the stuff they use to embalm bodies) but I never had a problem with it, but some reviewers say they have. As for the white spots on your nails, they're usually nothing to worry about. They're most often just calcium deposits (excess keratin) or a result from an injury to the base of the nail. END RANT. I hope this helps!

    This is my first deduction and I'm going to try and be thorough, so be sure to mention which things I've got right and which things I've got wrong afterward. You've got dry skin, and on your hands or feet are the places it's a bit worse than normal. It bugs you either by irritating you or for aesthetic reasons, so you're trying diligently to get rid of it. You possibly had chapped lips, and if so then it was a while ago and they're currently not chapped. You're probably an avid Christian, but you find it hard to keep a schedule of religious devotion each and every day, and wish you put in more time reading than you do. You've probably got a New Testament to the right of the bible leaning up against your computer screen. You highlight the verses in your bible that you think are significant, and even though some of the highlighted verses are different colors, they were all highlighted for more or less the same reason. You're probably taking grade 11 precalculus which means that you're either in grade 10 or grade 11, and if so then you're most definitely currently living in Canada or the United States. You possibly go to a Christian school. You have a knife on your desk that you sometimes carry around with you because it gives you a sense of security, and because you're convinced knives are pretty cool. The knife is a cheap knife, but it's sturdy. You have a computer that you've probably built yourself, but you did not receive your keyboard from the same source you received your computer from. You'd like to upgrade your keyboard eventually (and maybe your mouse too, but you'd say that's less important than the keyboard). You have an MSI graphics card, probably a 300 series. You enjoy gaming, and you think that Android phones are superior to Apple phones. You're probably male. You live in a budget that allows you to buy nice things, but not much more than the average person your age. You like to keep up your appearances. You try to keep your room clean as much as you can, but most of the time it's not in the best shape. Things can get messy sometimes, but something that annoys you more than general clutter is a maze of wires. You drink coffee or tea, probably on a schedule of some sort. You have at least 1 female caretaker, and may or may not have more male or female caretakers. You play guitar, and your skill level is something between horrible to slightly-above average. You were recently sick, but it wasn't your sickness that gave you dry skin, those are separate problems. You put your clipped nails in the small jar right beside your nail clippers, and then either wash or dump it out when you're done. You had some older moisturizing stuff, but it didn't work as good as the stuff you have now, so you stopped using it. You prepared for this photo before taking it, but not that much. Normally, your watch would be on your hand, but it wasn't so in this photo. Also, the room that you live in probably hasn't been yours your whole life. How'd I do?

    I am seeing an awful lot of comments talking about how their dog is scared/baby of this and that. Somebody made a comment about how their dog yelps so much, that he has to hide when clipping his dogs nails. You say that getting him into the water was like ripping his nails out. I have two dogs, that I've managed to train myself and these were both behaviors that I was extremely successful with, so hopefully this helps. ve never, ever used negative reinforcement or punishment. I've never hit my dog, used a shock collar, or used a choke collar. I've always used toys, treats, or a good belly rub to reward behaviors that I want him to do. If there is a behavior I don't want him to do, like jump over the couch (like he used to) I just taught him a command like,(over). Now my dogs don't jump OVER anything unless I give them the command, which is rewarded with some tasty oatmeal. I've taught the to dig on command, which has stopped them from digging when I don't want them to and I've taught them to g on command to stop them from growling whe they shouldn't. I basically put a label on a behavior they already did, attached a command, and rewarded the behavior when the dog performed it on cue. A huge task that I worked on was clipping the dogs nails. Hopefully this helps somebody here on reddit: I first brought the clippers around him ALL the time. If he sniffed it, he got a treat, if he touched it he got a treat, anytime he got close to the clippers, he got a treat. Then I got him use to me touching the tips of his nails. I would rub his belly and back and then just touch the tip of his nails. Not push, not squeeze. Just touch. If he was uncomfortable at any time, I would ease back to just petting his shoulder. Slowly work down until the dogs comfortable with you touching his toe. Then I worked on petting him with the clippers and introducing his claws to different textures. I would pet him then touch the nail with the clippers. If he was uncomfortable, I eased off and back to the previous step. Next, introduced them to the clipping sound, by clipping the prongs off a plastic fork. Then, I introduced the dogs to different pressures on their nails. I would pet the dogs, then squeeze the tip o the nail. Once again, I'd repeat the same reward process until the dogs were completely comfortable. After the dogs were used to the clippers, the sounds, the textures, the pressure, the touching, I eased into clipping the nails. I did one nail at first and then slowly eased into the rest, always backing off I the dogs were uncomfortable ( by uncomfortable, I mean that my dog looked at me funny, started painting, or would move his put his face over his paw to hide it.). It takes a shitload of time to train the dogs but, it makes it so much more worth it in the long run. Same thing goes with pools, it wasn't that my dog didn't ever "want" to go into the pool. He just didn't have a reason to go in. I had to ease him into the water by finding ways to make him comfortable and give him motivation. The easiest way was to use a ramp into the the water. Start with getting his feet wet. Make it a fun time, and literally, work from the bottom up. Seriously, if you're an owner and plan on having dogs for the rest of your life, you should read "Don't Shoot the Dog" by Karen Pryor. I found that positive reinforcement is by far the best way to unlock a dogs potential without introducing any negative stimuli.

    Seconding the Facebook group suggestion if you're able! Look up bucket wheels as those are what most people prefer for their hedgehogs. You can buy or make one. Make sure you get a heat set up pretty soon. A CHE lamp, 150 watt bulb, a thermostat that will turn the lamp on/off as needed, and a thermometer for the cage. Hedgehogs need to stay in between 75-80°F. Cat food is fine but you'll want a food with certain percent values (can't remember exactly what those are). Volcano View Hedgehogs has a GREAT list of kibbles to choose from. I'd suggest switching to a water bowl instead of bottle. Their tongues can get stuck in the little ball on the bottom of the bottle, and chewing on the metal isn't great for their teeth. If you like the pine shavings make sure it's kiln-dried pine. Or if you don't like it I'd recommend switching to fleece. It's a lot less messy, reusable, and doesn't stink. With the shelf/loft thing I'd find a way to enclose the sides of the ramp (they can fall pretty easily) or take out the loft all together. Treats can come in various forms of bugs (meal worms, superworms, waxworms, crickets, dubai roaches) or from some people foods (unseasoned cooked meats, unseasoned cooked eggs, some fruits and veggies). Again, Volcano View Hedgehogs has a really great list. Hedgehogs love clutter so toys and hideouts are a must! Dig boxes are pretty common, fill them with pom pom balls, fleece strips. Crinkle cat toys are another favorite, just watch anything with small strings attached (they can get stuck around hedgies tiny feets and cause pretty serious damage). A large igloo and some snuggle sacks make great hideouts. Hedgehogs are nocturnal animals so while they may not like being woken up during the day time it is necessary to bonding with them or if you're up late at night you can wake them up then. Either way try to handle your hedgie for 30min-1hour every day. They will be grumpy and probably poke you quite a bit but the only way to get that to stop is to ignore it and handle them anyways. Pet their quills, touch their feet, and try to get their belly. You will also need to give baths and clip their toe nails. A good bath soap is Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash with oatmeal. To clip the nails you can use regular nail clippers or get the small baby nail scissors. Clipping is best done during or after a bath since the nails are softer. You'll also need to get a digital kitchen scale in order to keep track of your hedgies weight. Weigh them daily at first for about a month to get a good base line then you can switch to once a week and any time they feel heavier or lighter. I'd recommend going for a vet visit even if they're healthy so the vet can have an idea of what your hedgie looks like healthy. That way if any problems come up down the road they have something to go off of. If you have any other questions please don't hesitate to ask!

    More like "Pay a reasonable price for a purpose bred dog with extensive genetic health testing, breeder support and pre-owner care" Have six Wolfhounds, all pedigreed. They are from a breeder that is a dog safety instructor and service trainer, who raises them indoors with their children and cats, and exposes them to livestock. They come to me fully crate trained, house trained, about 2-3 commands like offlead recall, sit and 'go to bed', 2 weeks of puppy class already attended, microchipped, vaccinated, not desexed as it's bad for growth plates but a full refund voucher on the desex that happens at around 18 months, pedigree papers, genetic testing proof, papers from the lineage of the ancestors, papers from the person that social-tests them to best match each pup to the family, the cd of desensitising sounds they grew up with, a training book, a breed book, coat, collar, tags, leash, bed, toys, a bag of bully sticks, 3 months worth of food, flea treatment, worm treatment, nail clippers, a grooming voucher, and the knowledge that my new dog is as close to perfect for me as I could desire. They are neutral-friendly to cats, children, other dogs, strangers of all types, birds and a wide range of farm animals. By the 12-16 week mark that I pick them up at, they aren't food guarders, object guarders, boredom chewers, door scratchers, barkers, house markers, cat chasers, leash pullers, biters, groom shy, or jump-on-stranger dogs. They don't shy from noises like trains, car horns, fireworks, or storms. *that's* what I pay my $1000 for. The frankly ridiculous idea that a pedigree dog is exactly like a lab x from a rural pound but with a huge price tag is incorrect. You pay for quality. You pay for the crucial first weeks that your backyard bred mixbreed never got. You pay for the gentle ease past the fear period. You pay for the support you may need in the future. The pound won't even take back an unwanted dog over the 30 day mark if something goes wrong; my breeder guarantees a refund if an unwanted dog of any age is returned to her, to prevent it going to a pound. My oldest is 8 years old, no health issues at all. Recently tested clear of dysplasia, still goes on the daily fence rounds twice a day keeping up with a horse for around 20 km. Youngest is 2, so only just starting to do long walks, but no issues so far. I understand that to most people, they just want 'a dog' and that's it. They don't have a purpose or list of wants in mind, they just want an average dog that looks ok. A shelter buy is perfect for that, and I don't fault them for it. But I'm not going to be satisfied with a mix with uncertain history, and that shouldn't be faulted either.

    Here's my two cents - I hope it helps! Baby blanket(s) - *we had so many blankets. so, so many. The little flannel receiving blankets ended up as burp cloths, so that was a plus. We could have gotten by with 2-3, probably.* Baby socks (0-3 months), all white *my kid NEVER kept socks on. footed sleepers for the win. seriously.* Newborn to toddler tub *We didn't give him a proper bath until his umbilical stump fell off, so maybe 2-3ish weeks. Our kitchen sink didn't really work for baths, so we got a ton of use out of the tub.* Changing pad - *our first place (moved recently) was one story, so we used the changing pad for most changes since we didn't have to go upstairs.* Changing pad cover(s) (how many do you suggest? I have zero) *we had one, but always laid a little liner to catch rogue poops and pees* Sleep sack (I have one, used) *my kid never used this. he loved the swaddle until he started rolling* Car seat protector *we never used this* Bottle Brush *ended up formula feeding, so we have gone through many of these. still use them for the sippy cups* Hands free breast pump bra *can't comment since I wasn't able to breast feed, but it sounds fantastic* Boppy nursing pillow *we used ours a bit, it was really helpful for propping him up and also when he started learning to sit up* Boppy newborn lounger *we didn't have one* Pack n play + pac n play mattress *my kiddo hated the PNP without a mattress. we travel 3+ hours to visit my family about one a month, so we have gotten tons of use. also, if you get this, get a waterproof liner and sheets that will fit it* Humidifier *yes, get one, it will be your best friend during the winter when the heat's on and when your kid is congested* Baby nail clippers *my kid's talons grew super fast, so we use this all the time* Crib sheets (I don't have any - and how many would you suggest?) *we had two, and two waterproof liners. we made the bed like so: liner > sheet > liner > sheet. so if we had an explosion, we just had to rip the top two off* Car seat canopy *don't have one* Thermometer (forehead/ear, or rectal or both?) *we used a rectal. it's the easiest way when they're little* Waterproof fitted crib pad *yep - see above* Shopping cart and high chair cover *eh. we had one, i used it once, then decided that it was too much of a pain and I didn't care* Baby bottles *we had to formula feed, so I was glad I had these on hand when my milk didn't come in* Glider/rocking chair *yesssss. my kid had trouble napping during the day. i sat in the rocker for hours while he slept on me. we still use it at night during our bedtime routine to read stories.*

    For a mech mod and rda, bare minimum, you need... Nail clippers from CVS or Walgreens, this style... http://content.bodytoolz.com/data/default/images/catalog/350/BT6030.jpg or flush cutting wire cutters. Needle nose pliers, precision screwdrivers (the kind with different sizes in mm for each one), sharp little scissors, maybe even some metric hex wrenches from Lowe's, home depot. Ohm reader, Kuro coilers, Inline voltage reader, and ceramic tweezers from online or for 5 times as much at a vape shop. The ohm reader is mandatory, the rest of these are just very nice to have. Can't forget the paper towels either. You'll also need wire and wicking material, and your new best friend, steam engine. You'll be spending a lot of time on steam engine. I use Rayon for wicking, but most people still use organic cotton pads. Rayon is about $12 for a lifetime supply at Sally's beauty supply. If there's one near you, good cotton pads can be gotten at a sephora for $9. Then there's batteries, look in the sidebar at the links labeled "Mooch315's Recommendations" "Safety Grades" If you have time to kill, check out the one labeled "18650 Tests" as well. Well, we've overshot your budget already and you're still nowhere near ready. Now you need to study up on ohms law. After you can, given a glance at a coil and told what wire material it's made from, give an approximation of it's resistance and what the amp draw and wattage it would fire at, then you're ready... To study some more. Need to learn how to wick right. Don't worry, this is much less intensive on study time. about 5 hours or so on YouTube can teach you the basics of wicking. Your first build and wick job will still suck and taste like shit. What can I say, it's an art and acquired skill, you'll get there eventually. Now, just taking a stab in the dark, but someone that "don't know much about mods or tanks or all that jargon at all." and "want something simple" "for ~$40" probably isn't going to want to lay out all this cash, and time, and effort. Do yourself a favor, go pick up a regulated mod and a prebuilt tank and go blow some O's. There are plenty of kits around $40. Still read those two links about batteries by Mooch I pointed you to before. You still want good batteries, none of that Efest garbage. You'll still need replacement coils and juice, but you'll have a setup for about your price point.

  • Sibyl Orn

    I have very limited experience thus far, but here's what we've done: Baby blanket(s) - I got a bunch (6-7?) of Aden and Anais muslin blankets and I've used all of them multiple times so far. Love them! Haven't really used any of the others that we were gifted. Baby socks - Now that it's getting colder out, we use SO MANY socks. Newborn to toddler tub - Still haven't used a tub. We just lay LO in the bottom of the tub. She HATED the baby tub. Changing pad - We've used ours since day one, my best friend hasn't used hers yet (8mo), so YMMV Changing pad cover(s) (how many do you suggest? I have zero) - I have one that wraps all the way around and have 4 'mats' that lay on top of that which block pee from ruining the cover. Our cover is mostly decorative. Sleep sack (I have one, used) - I haven't used mine yet, but I'm thinking about it now that we're moving our LO to her crib from the RNP in our room. Car seat protector - Didn't get one. Bottle Brush - Have one, don't *actually* need it. Hands free breast pump bra - Didn't nurse, can't comment on this one. Boppy nursing pillow - I use this thing all the freaking time! Propping her up, tummy time, feeding. Literally use it for everything! Boppy newborn lounger - I just used the boppy pillow for everything, never bought this. Pack n play + pac n play mattress - Bought a PNP to use at my mom's for LO to sleep in. We've only used it once. Never bought a mattress. Humidifier - Never got one, but probably will soon (probably should have been purchased already) Baby nail clippers - GOD YES, baby nails grow SO FAST Crib sheets - I have 4 crib sheets. Baby just started sleeping in the crib so we've only used 1 so far. Car seat canopy - Gifted one, used a handful of times. This may become more as the weather gets cooler. Thermometer (forehead/ear, or rectal or both?) - I have a forehead one, but am told that rectal is the way to go for babies. Waterproof fitted crib pad - Our mattress is waterproof so we didn't really need this. Shopping cart and high chair cover - Probably will never get this ourselves. I wouldn't be mad if someone bought me one though! Baby bottles - I went through about 3 brands of bottles. Once we decided which we liked, we had 4 of them and that's how it's been since. LO was EFF, so if you're breastfeeding, that may be different for you! Glider/rocking chair - We have a glider and I've only used it a handful of times. It's super comfy though, so I'll probably move it to my bedroom at some point!

    Well, it would be worth knowing what sort of opinions your parents have about the gay/trans community to try and get a good idea of what they could possibly do. Worst case scenario they disown you and you're stuck financing the whole transition yourself (I'm personally looking at this option as an absolute certainly since I'm a paranoid person). Best thing to do to get past this would just to have your own income stream and wait to have an emergency fund to pay for a small apartment/save up for hormones (May or may not be a viable option, assuming you're young/incapable of working for whatever reason). Second thing is that they refuse to pay/can't pay for the transition (It can be pretty expensive). This allows you to save up funds without needing to worry about rent, and gives your parents time to come to terms with everything and maybe help out in time. Another situation is they are totally in support of you (or already know) and fund the whole thing and then everything is fantastic. Regardless of your parent's opinion/action my personal strategy has been to look at your body as a work in progress/clay to be molded into a rough approximation of your ideal self, and take every little thing you can get while closeted (My mom is pretty okay with me having more feminine beauty stuff since she's dated some pretty girly guys, fortuneately). One thing you should absolutely try is getting some basic manicuring tools (Clippers and nail files), a round styling hair brush (I personally use a round brush, but a flat brush is fine if you prefer working with one), a razor (Preferably one that get a close shave, there are guides here on reddit for getting smooth shaves, would be worth looking those up) and some skincare stuff (This one may not gel with the most conservative/gender critical people, but a simple cleanser and moisturizer shouldn't be too ridiculous) be sure to visit the skincareaddiction subreddit for recommendations, they're a pretty solid community. Once you've got all that, you can start setting up a more feminine routine (I still forget to do my skincare stuff sometimes, it'll take a bit). Might also be worth practicing some stuff like movement/non-verbal commutation, that always makes me feel better when I get to come home and be full (bearded) girl mode

    Here are some recommendations that are under $25: 1. Kershaw Cryo ($22.00 on Amazon) - Such a great starter EDC blade; really nice Rick Hinderer designed blade, available in 3 and 4 inch configuration. 2. Fenix E12 ($24.99 on Amazon) - 130 lumens from a single AA battery in a compact size. 3. Leuchtturm 1917 Notepad ($19.50 on Amazon) - Lays flat and available in a variety of sizes. Lots of details put into this like page numbers, table of contents pages, etc. Another alternative is the Baron & Fig Confident ($16.00) notebook. 4. Pilot Metropolitan Fountain Pen ($12.55 on Amazon) - Considered one of the best beginner fountain pens available. Available in a nice stainless steel variant as well for a more reformed taste. 5. Fisher Space Pen ($11.50 on Amazon) - If you're not feeling a fountain pen, the Fisher Space Pen Cap-O-Matic is a great, durable alternative. 6. Nite-Ize Power Key (Varies on Amazon) - A keyring that contains either a Micro USB or Lightning Cable used for charging your phone. 7. Fidget Spinners (Varies on Etsy) - These are available all over Etsy in a variety of different forms. Some use ball-bearings to allow you to spin it in-place, others allow various twirling, etc. Great for time wasting or stress relief. 8. Stanley Pocket 4 in 1 Screwdriver ($5.29 on Amazon) - An alternative to a more expensive multi-tool like a Leatherman; provides 4 different screwdriver heads in a pen sized profile. 9. Victorinox Travel Fingernail Clippers ($13.29 on Amazon) - A very slim, keyring finger nail clipper. 10. Timex Easy Reader Watch ($23.99 on Amazon) - Just a simple analog watch with date dial and classic style. Lots of other alternatives out there including digitial. What do I want? Foursevens Mini M2A - I had a Browning micro-torch that I picked up for like $15 from an LGS as an impulse buy. I lost it and I'd like to replace it with a proper light. Sig Sauer P938 - I'm currently carrying an SP2022 (which I didn't buy for carry), but I'd like to get a dedicated carry gun. Out of everything I've evaluated so far, this seems to be the best for me (tried Glock 43, S&W Bodyguard, LCP, Beretta Nano)

    - Baby gates/pen (my samoyed princess hated her crate. What a waste of money as I ended up not crating her. She is a therapy dog so I'm sure you can have a well behaved puppy without a crate. However make sure she is always in a dog proof area and without a collar if left unsupervised). - 1 comb, 1 slicker brush, 1 pin brush (no furminator brushes, they're too harsh) - nail clippers - doggy water bottle for walks (Gulpy works great) - lots of poo bags - snap on collar and leash from white pine (avoid medium and darker colours if possible, they stain the fur) - harness (I'd recommend ConfortFlex Small for a puppy as there is zero pressure on the trachea; you can try other brands too) - seatbelt harness. SleepPod is the only real seatbelt for dogs. If you are asking Xmas presents for the dog I would recommend you ask for this item as it can be pricey and you will need more than one as the puppy grows - a 8 meter Flexi Giant XL retractable leash (the one Made in Germany) will last for her/his entire life. It is great when walking an older, trained puppy- gives them the space they need. Again, a great Xmas present suggestion. - pee-pads if you live in a condo. Simply One brand is the best. My samoyed grew up in a condo and pads were helpful to prevent accidents. My dog prefers going outside but until they are 5 mo or so, sometimes they can't control it and wait to get downstairs as their urinary tract is not fully developed yet - stainless steel water and food bowl - doggy toothpaste (tried several brands, kissable works for us) - soft toothbrush - small kong (x2) - toys... - treats (freeze dried liver, cheese, sweet potato treats are always a success, Milkabone is good too). - I wouldn't recommend a bed but you can always try - car seat cover (cruising companion paw print is a good start, you will need a few over the years). Another great Xmas present suggestion. - for a girl dog, scarves and cute pink bows :) - positive reinforcement training + patience :) - enjoy, samoyed puppies are the best! I can't wait to get a second one...

  • April Ernser

    Heres a very minimal budget list- in no order: -pack n play (most versatile sleep item, imo) or crib (yes, ikea or the cheapest new ones are fine) -crib mattress or mattress for pack n play (not a necessity for when first born, but the pack n play is super uncomfortable on bottom when you have to lower the mattress). -1 small pack of newborn diapers and 1 small pack of size 1 diapers. You will not know what the baby will like or be allergic to or fit well until they are born, so don't buy a lot of the same! - wipes (huggies naturals are pretty safe allergy wise, you can also use washcloth and water). -2 bottles, in different brands and types in case of rejection. You can go from there if baby refuses. I used advent natural with my first. -thermometer -Motrin -car seat - waterproof sheets and sheets for mattress. -nail clippers (scissors work best IMO). -diaper rash creme. -cloth flat fold diapers (these are for burp rags and can be used for so much more). -2 light blankets (think muslin cotton) and 2 heavy blankets (one set can be in the wash while other set is available. -something to safely place baby down on/in (bouncer, swing, baby gym- buy used or inexpensive). -some type of bath tub/ bath mat. We are getting the leachco bath cushion and it's 19.99 from bed bath and beyond online. I've also heard just washing them in the sink works fine too. - clothes. http://www.babycenter.com/0_checklist-baby-clothes-birth-to-3-months_10329367.bc. Things to build on from basics above or "luxuries": - high chair. -+1 in quantities above, so instead of 2 light blankets, get three. - toys (Sophie, o-ball, light up music toy, teether). - pacifiers (don't stock up, my baby rejected all but the maam brand). - some type of baby carrier (you can get mobys for cheap online, and ergos on craigslist). - stroller. Just know you don't need a ton of stuff to raise a baby,

    Okay, so *cracks knuckles* for a cage, you can always get a big plastic tote or there's the CC cages. Sometimes hogs like to climb those, though! You can always get zip ties to tie some siding onto them, though :) For a wheel, NO wire wheels and no saucers! Storm bucket wheels are your best way to go and they last forever! You can order them online. If you choose to go with one at the petstore, just make sure its plastic. For food, cat food! But make sure the FIRST ingredient is real meat. https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/236x/c2/9b/04/c29b04e8c8852b1deea65065cd22e86b.jpg That there is a really great guide :) Bedding, a lot of people use fleece liners. I personally don't have the time for them, as I work full time and have a horse, too. So I do unscented carefresh. I spot clean as much as I can and clean once a week-every other week. Your wheel will need cleaned daily, too, so be sure to get a scrubber like you would use for dishes and some dishsoap :) Igloo! STay away from wood for igloos/hides, as they can cause mites. If you use ANYTHING wood, be sure to freeze it for 36-48 hours. You can go to your local home depot or similar store and get 4 inch pvc pipes for little tunnels :) cat jingle balls make good toys or the crunchy balls. Usually hogs can range between $150-250, just depending on the breeder/rescue :) You will need stuff for baths and little nail-clippers, as their nails typically need trimmed about once a week-every other week, depending. For soap, you can use a baby shampoo, but also pick up some coconut oil to put into their rinse water to keep their skin from getting dry. You also need some sort of heating unit, as hogs cant be in cold temps. They WILL try to hibernate which can kill them. A lot of people use a CHE lamp and a thermostat that goes with the cage. My hog stays in my half-bath with the door shut where he can stay warm and cozy :)

    First, you can find many cheap authentic RDAs in this list. Clones aren't bad, but just putting the option out there. https://www.reddit.com/r/electronic_cigarette/comments/4ej0s4/heres_a_project_i_started_earlier_today Now to build tools... Nail clippers from CVS or similar, this style... http://content.bodytoolz.com/data/default/images/catalog/350/BT6030.jpg Needle nose pliers, precision screwdrivers (the kind with different sizes in mm for each one), little scissors, metric hex wrenches are available from Lowe's, home depot, or even a dollar store. Kuro coilers, Ohm reader, ceramic tweezers, and strap wrenches/bottle openers from fast tech. The ohm reader is mandatory, the rest of these are just nice to have. An online voltage reader is handy as well, but you'd have to find one in a vape shop or search online, FT doesn't carry them anymore as far as I can find. Can't forget the paper towels either. You'll also need wire and wicking material, and your new best friend, steam engine. I like SS between 24ga & 28ga depending. You can pick up spools on the cheap from slow tech if you're not in a hurry. I like rayon for wicking, but most people still use organic cotton pads. Rayon is about $12 for a lifetime supply at Sally's beauty supply. If there's one near you, good cotton pads can be gotten at a sephora for $9. Otherwise there's Amazon. Stay away from hybrid Mechs to begin with. The safety for them is simple, but just the normal mech safety is enough to focus on for a beginner. Always check your resistance on an ohm meter before mounting the coil on the Mod, and check your amp draw with an ohms law calculator even if you ran the numbers yourself. Stay safe.

    So your solution is to run off alone when a guy is trying to attack you and just *hope* he doesn't follow. So what about people who can't outrun an attacker? Thin the herd? Let the predators have their way and weed out the sick, old, and weak? Great plan. Also, I don't buy it for a second. Your high minded ideals are nice when it is a hypothetical situation and your emotions, instincts, and desire to live are not at play. The means to effectively defend yourself are at hand, and you will run away from that instrument in the hope that someone else will *maybe* come help you in time. Bullshit. When your life is on the line, I bet all your preaching goes out the window and you reach for the best thing available to keep your attacker from harming you. Lets mix it up and say the life of your child or family is on the line. At what point do you out down the attacker? How much has to be at risk? You are very proud of yourself because of things you cant control. You didn't have any say in owning a gun, that was decided for you. You don't have a say in defending yourself with a bat, or a stick, or nail clippers, because in your country if you keep items for the sake of defense, *you* are the criminal. I can at least respect people who make a choice themselves, but that choice was for you and yet you wear it like a child wears a gold star sticker. By the way, we both know that the unarmed police in the UK are there only to handle the drunks and to chase off kids. Your soft targets are protected by people with guns, and some pretty substantial guns at that. Wasn't it just last year one of your MPs was executed in the street by a man with a gun? I suppose the police who arrested the killer went in armed with strong language and nail clippers?

    Hey girl. Looking gorgeous. Make sure to see a therapist so you can get on HRT asap. That stuff is incredible. Get a good foundation to even out your colour (matching it to your neck). A matching foundation is essential Using a darker shade of makeup on your adam's apple will make it appear smaller. Eyeliner and mascara (with white eye pencil on your lower waterline) would make your eyes really pop. Contour, contour, contour. It's sooooo useful. Use it to make your chin and nose more slender (dark colours on the sides, lighter shades down the middle). Contouring with several shades will also make your cheeks really stand out. Start with a light shade beneath your eyes, getting darker until you reach your cheekbones - don't get too dark. Lipstick and lip pencils to make your upper lip look plumper. You have a faint 5 o'clock shadow on your chin, you can hide the blue tint that this gives with red lipstick (any cheap brand) and then adding makeup over the top to hide both. In the future get laser or electrolysis to blast it for good. Apply a powder to set everything and good to go. Also paint your nails or buff them till they shine. No matter which you do make sure to use a nail and cuticle oil to keep them hydrated and healthy. When trimming don't use a metal pair of clippers as they can sometimes crack your nails if they're too brittle in ways you wouldnt expect. Use a glass file in a single direction. Grow your hair and shape it into a feminine style as that will go a long way in framing the best features of your face. Practice your voice - a good voice can make someone with bad makeup skills pass. a bad voice can make someone with good makeup skills get clocked.

    Here is my list of not needed. Diaper genie or equivalent. Get a trash can with a lid and use those glad fabreeze scented trash bags. Finally figured out the best solution on kid 3. First 6 months, 1 dress and 2 outfits for special occasions unless you're the mom who needs to have a living doll. The onzies preferably zip are great. The gowns (cotton) are awesome at night. Burp rags, you can never have too many, and socks too. Shoes are a waste as you'll spend more time trying to keep them in then anything. You do not need need a changing table. Just get one of those changing table pads and put it on a dresser. Baby monitor is great if you put the baby down and you are 1 flight of stairs away, but next door useless. Also, all you need is sounds. Toys, a plush animal that makes sounds, a one or two to put in the mouth and something that rattles and crinkles. Done. Ps, she is too young to learn any color, shapes. The stroller car seat combo is nice until 9 months to a year and then the umbrella stroller is great. The car seat base for your car is a must if you have space for a permanent spot. One diaper bag is all that's needed. $100 Walmart crib is acceptable. I have a really high end one as well and they both work fine. But you can tell the difference. Don't get sold on the upgradability of them as you will most likely just buy a new bed for the kids. Don't go crazy child proofing your home. Outlets, chemicals aka cleaning supplies , medicine. That's it. Baby nail clippers worth it. Snot bulb worth it. A basic baby bathtub of you don't want to wash out your kitchen sink. The swing that swings side to side is worth it. That set for tummy time is worthless. Through down a blanket, done Ear or forehead thermometer is nice. Playpen is worthless, Good luck

    I'd recommend SS for TC since you have a good mod to support it. 26ga works well, doing a spaced coil reduces the need for dry burning, but too thin of wire will make wicking difficult and 24ga is usually too much for small single coil atomizer. You can probably throw prebuilt exotic coils or 24Ga in the Engine Nano. I use the kuro coilers, but the coil master will be better with the Engine Nanos off set post holes since wrapping counter clockwise will work better. Here's my general new builders tool list: Nail clippers from CVS or similar, this style... http://content.bodytoolz.com/data/default/images/catalog/350/BT6030.jpg Needle nose pliers, precision screwdrivers (the kind with different sizes in mm for each one), little scissors, metric hex wrenches, from Lowe's, home depot, or even a dollar store. Coiler tool, Ohm reader, ceramic tweezers, and strap wrenches/bottle openers from fast tech or as a builders kit from another online shop. The ohm reader is mandatory, the rest of these are just nice to have. Can't forget the paper towels either. You'll also need wire and wicking material, and your new best friend, steam engine. I like SS between 24ga & 28ga depending on what I'm building on. You can pick up spools on the cheap from slow tech if you're not in a hurry, or Tengo if you want a larger supply. I like rayon for wicking, but most people still use organic cotton pads. Rayon is about $12 for a lifetime supply at Sally's beauty supply. If there's one near you, good cotton pads can be gotten at a sephora for $9. Otherwise there's Amazon.

    Take it slow. It's not a disaster if you don't cut his nails for a few weeks/months. So don't try that till you've trained him. My dog used to be scared to death whenever I would approach him with the tick remover. It was impossible to remove ticks without help of two other people and loads of muscle. Which of course is very sad. So I decided to just let the ticks be for a while until I had trained him to be okay with it. This is what I did. Just sit in front of your dog with the clippers and if he looks at them or sniffs them (if you use a clicker, click, if you don't, reward him with your voice and then give him a treat) click and give him a treat. He'll soon learn that touching the clippers means treat! Now you touch him with the clippers. Touch his nose, if he let's you. Treat! Touch him all over his body with the clippers and reward him. After that, put the clippers on his paw for just a fraction of a second. And always give him a treat! Extend the time of touching his paws with the clippers. Wiggle the clippers, make a clipping sound with it, touch his nails. And always reward. Now you can very slowly start clipping one nail. And reward him like crazy. This is the best thing ever! If he becomes stressed during any part of the training, quit. Clippers mean only positive. It's party time when the clippers come out! Don't try this training method in just two or three days. Take about 2-3 weeks to make him fully comfortable with it. It takes some time and dedication but the result is awesome. My dog loves the tick remover now and sits perfectly still even when I remove ticks around his eyes.

    In the old house we lived in, we had a really shitty alarm system that didn't work; it would randomly go off every four months or so and ring in the house super loud. We would have to go in the garage and turn the breaker off to make it shut off. One day this happened while my parents were in bed getting ready to go asleep. I had to go to the garage and turn the breaker off myself. All the lights were off in the house except for the kitchen. I come in the living room to walk back to my room and my dog is staring at my parents open doorway barking. Suddenly, the door slams shut and the alarm immediately trips again. Creepy AF. My mom also told me an experience where she was looking for the nail clippers for like 5 minutes and got annoyed and said out loud, "where are the damn nail clippers" or something along the lines of that...and just like that the nail clippers fell off something and into the sink in front of her. We had many other minor experiences where we would think we see stuff as well. To back our theory up the our house had something in it, my dad went to best buy to get a new TV or something. The kid that helped him got into a conversation with my dad and the topic of where we lived for brought up. The kid said, oh I used to live in yalls neighborhood, and it turns out he lived only two houses down from us. He then asked my dad as a joke if he has any ghosts in our house. My dad got serious and was said we actually do...it turns out the kid and his family moved because his mom would be touched and have her hair pulled all the time in their house. Glad to be out of that neighborhood

    Tree preference varies from cat to cat. Starting with something in the middle of the road with a platform about 4' up and a cubby hole near the bottom is probably the best way to figure out whether your cat likes being up in the air or under things. Kitty Mansions haven't disappointed me yet; I've seen a pit bull climb one of these and sit in it like the cats did, so they're pretty solid. I like [the Houston](https://kittymansions.com/collections/frontpage/products/houston) for a smaller or 'starter' tree and scratching post. Then, stow cardboard boxes in hidden places or on shelves up in the air and see where the cat chooses to hang out. You may also save yourself a lot of fuss if you put a box or basket on your desk near the computer so the cat can be close to you without laying directly on the keyboard. One of mine has taken the top of my scanner to be her Throne as well, so they seem to pick their favorite spots as they settle in. If your cat is a large adult, you'll need a larger litter box than average. The box should be about half again as long as the cat so they have room to walk around and dig. Be careful with scented litters, too. Some cats are fussy about an odor that's too strong. Try to get metal or ceramic food bowls; plastic are harder to disinfect. Don't forget a brush, and a comb if the cat has long hair. You'll also need nail clippers; [I've found simpler is better for us.](https://www.chewy.com/safari-nail-trimmer-cats/dp/46249)

    A party frock, never seem to use one. As to what to pack I find "athleisure" to be my friend. Three weeks in a carry-on. Wear your biggest clothing. A pair of fitted black slacks are your best friend, you can dress them up, or down. So here goes my packing list. 4 bottoms 1 black slack, two leggings (if cool one fleece lined) and one midi skirt (all black). 4 tops, two long sleeved, two short sleeved, navy, gray and plum, one jacket (again black), and one cashmere sweater either blue, grey or plum. Toss in two scarfs see above colors. You can layer up the tops, and wear what the bottom that is the correct weight, add a scarf for some interest or warmth. I also wear a pair of black booties and sometimes pack a second pair so I can switch off. Remember you can almost always purchase something if you need it. Cosmetics/Hair Care. Its the hair care that is my downfall, I have curly hair and it hates everything. If I know I will need a ton of product I will contact my hotel in advance and mail it to them in advance, I might also toss in some other liquids to avoid TSA issues. I normally use my Minkoff backpack as my purse, and if I feel it is necessary will toss in a small dress crossbody bag. As you will be wearing some of this you will find you can just about fit it all in the backpack. Electronics, small charger two cords (just in case), iphone, iPad mini, and a universal adapter. Cosmetics, moisturizer, and that's it for liquids, will pack a compact foundation, powder, mascara, gel liner, brow product, tweezers, nail file and clippers.

    Had a man come into the pet store I used to work at with a box of milkbones that had about 4 biscuits left in the box. Said his dog didn't like them and he wanted his money back. I explained to him that I can't refund him for an empty box, to which he argued that the box wasn't empty and there were some left in it. I said, irregardless, the box is 95% empty, there's nothing I can do with it. He again stated how much his dog didn't like them and I needed to refund is money. I said "Well somebody liked them, otherwise the box wouldn't be empty". He told me I was "the devil in the flesh" and threw the box at me. I told him to leave. He kept being belligerent. Said he had the right mind to kick my ass. I calmly walked around to his side of the counter and said "you are welcome to try". He back-pedalled his way out of the store while cursing at me and telling me I'm evil. Later that day a different person came in with a set of nail clippers that we didn't carry at my store, wanted me to refund him money he didn't pay here for something he didn't buy here, and when I told him "we don't sell this brand, you'll have to take this back to where you got it from" he called me a liar and told me he'd shove the nail clippers up my ass. I looked at him and said "you're welcome to try". He didn't and he too left while cursing my existence. Point is when customers are being belligerent douchebags, I've found the best approach is to stand your ground and call them on their shit. They never back up their threats. They're all talk.

  • Darrell Buckridge

    Yeah, I don't mean toughen up as in I'm some kind of macho badass or something. And it is a gradual process. Like on a thru hike, everything becomes a luxury. I like my craft beers and IPAs and such, but that bud or coors I find in a stream left by a trail angel after doing 20 miles tastes damn good. A regular shower in a crappy motel is bliss, stuff like that. I also carry much less gear than most people. I don't want to buy new gear, replace gear, clean gear, check out the newest and best gear, ect. I do get out there with ultralight stuff, but only because being lighter helps me enjoy the hike more. I see the long term, for example, I got really good at trimming my fingernails with a pocketknife on my last thru hike. Not only is that not a piece of gear I have to carry hiking anymore, but I'll never need to buy a pair of nail clippers again. Sure the cost and weight is marginal, but think of applying that philosophy to every piece of gear you own. Aside from being in nature and hiking a lot, that is the biggest appeal to bushcrafting and survivalism to me. Sure I carry a knife, but I know of 10 different ways to improvise one, stomp a tin can flat, then sharpen it on a rock, stuff like that. Also, for the luxury, I've been on car camping trips with friends, and that is fun as well in its own way. I haven't been out in the woods enough the last few years, and it has hurt me a lot. I used to do it as a kid, then did long hikes after I got out of the Army, nothing else helps my PTSD as much as being in nature.

  • Cornell White

    The clothes are definitely great. I'd say overall the quality of the men's clothes is better, but if you're looking for simple unadorned women's clothing Muji is your best bet. The AW16 women's collection was great. I think overall quality in the clothing is going down. I have some Muji pieces from 2009 that still look great, but my 2015 stuff is semi-wrecked. The mittens with the button, wool stoles, and the denim slippers are great too. I think some of the stationary is good quality for the price. The aluminum fountain pen (which I think might have been discontinued), and the "high quality notebook" (black ruled notebook with smooth paper) are excellent. I'm a big fan of the beige porcelain tableware series (very durable and nice sizing) and some of the stainless steel kitchenware (the small whisk and grater are great). The PP makeup boxes are very durable and versatile, much better than the acrylic series imo. The carpet roller is overpriced, but still nice since those are hard to buy in the US. I use it with the short wooden handle. For personal care items the nail clippers, cotton buds, and tweezers are great, as are the blotting papers with powder. In general I'd say the furniture isn't sorry it but the body fit cushion is great. Unfortunately it's also overpriced and with no warranty.

    Tools: * Computer with internet access [X] * Money * Guitar/amp/cables * Soldering Iron (and solder) * Pliers (needle-nose preferred) * Wire cutters/strippers (nail clippers work rather well!) * Assorted screwdrivers * Multimeter Super Tools: * Oscilloscope * Signal Generator * Frequency Counter * Breadboard * Dremmel * Drill Press (and bits) * Belt Sander * Paint (rattle cans are just fine) * Printer * Ruler/straitedge * Push punch I only listed "super tools" because I've used each and every one of them multiple times on pedals. Most people don't necessarily need them. The best place to learn is electrical engineering college courses. Those aren't an easy option for most, and there are many other fantastic places to learn. I'll list right here on this sub first. The next best way to learn is by doing. build circuits, play with alternate parts, etc. Find a circuit you really want to build and learn EXACTLY how it works. Everyone else here has already listed some of the best places for parts, but for redundancy I like Mammoth and Smallbear. Antique Electronic Supply has some more rare and niche parts. Final tip: Set up a nice, clean workspace. A bright lamp, good ventilation, and helpful charts on the wall will make the experience easier and more enjoyable.

    Well, the only things you really need to build a kit are a pair of hobby clippers and motivation. Everything else is optional, depending on how much effort you wanna put into making your model look as best as possible(hell, I used nail clippers of all things with my first gunpla because I didn't want to invest in tools before actually building one for myself and knowing if this was a hobby I wanted to pursue or not). For this one I actually got a [modeling toolkit](https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01D1JYXKO/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_x_FodKybKWAEHB0), some [Gundam markers](https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00HY93GHY/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_x_VodKyb0Y3TJD3) for panel lining and a [small cutting mat](https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00251I5P4/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_x_updKyb0HY189F) through amazon(although you might be able to find them at local hobby stores as well). I can't really speak for other tools since I haven't tried them out, but these ones worked pretty well for me. If you're worried about costs you can always start with just some basic tools and slowly build your toolbox up from there as you build more models. Hopefully you have as much fun with your first gunpla as I had with mine! P.S. Remember I'm also a newbie so take all of this with a grain of salt

  • Edgar Waters

    I got a question for you. How much do you want to spend on cutters? Some notable brands for cutters are (listed from price ascending) Xuron($10-$20), Tamiya($25-$30), Gundam Planet($35), and then Godhand($55-$??). (There might be others, but I have found these to be the most popular.) Right now I have Gundam Planet nippers. They are the best nippers I have had so far, but I have only owned one other pair so dont take my word to heart. **What ever you do don't go for a $5 pair not worth it at all.** I did that and I spent more time fixing the mistakes those clippers did to my model. Personal opinion get a pair of [Tamiya Sharp Pointed Side Cutters](https://www.amazon.com/Tamiya-Sharp-Pointed-Side-Cutter/dp/B000J47Z4G/) or [Gundam Planet Nippers](https://www.amazon.com/Gundam-Planet-Premium-Nipper-Plastic/dp/B012TMXDAU/). Here is a [comparison] (https://panzercraft.com/articles/2016-01-31-tamiya-side-cutters-vs-gundam-planet-nippers/) between the two. In all honesty though I have no been able to replicate that slow cut with my GP nippers. Another point is I have been able to get pretty close if you scratch the white part with your finger nail it almost looks like the slow cut photo.

    Occasionally I notice a grogginess into the next day (especially if I've had some wine the previous evening,) and sometimes it waxes and wanes in terms of effectiveness, but overall, it's the first thing I've used in a lifetime of soul-sucking insomnia that works without any undue side effects. It *does* become habitative (if I don't take it, I can't go to sleep at all for a few days), but that may or may not be an artifact of the drug, and it's a small price to pay for the reasonable expectation of 6-7 hours of relatively unbroken sleep every night. Suggest taking the smallest effective dose you can manage, and be sure to stay as hydrated as possible. Personally I cut a 3 mg tab in half with nail clippers and take 1.5-2 mg a night to satisfactory effect-- though I weaned myself off 3mg/night after it began to lose effectiveness a few years ago. Considering that when I first began this medication it cost me $420/month out of pocket and I paid it willingly, the generic version-- at long last-- while not exactly the same formulation, is a fine alternative. YMMV. Consult with your physician to find the dose that best works for you. Good luck, OP. And pleasant dreams. :-)

    I know many vets will do beak/nail grooming for a relatively cheap. Realistically trimming your bird's nails yourself isn't difficult, you just have to be confident in what you're doing. A bird may often squawk and squirm and make a fuss so it's best if you just keep calm and get the procedure over as fast as possible. That being said, definitely go to a professional if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself. BTW it is possible to train a bird to tolerate (even enjoy!) nail trims. I've had more success using a nail file since it tends to pinch and hurt less than actual clippers. If you get your bird used to seeing and being around the file, then reward him when you try to touch his nails he can eventually get used to the sensation. Just make sure to start off slowly: scrape once, then give him a treat, scrape twice and another treat, etc. If he gets uncomfortable back off, and try to make the experience positive overall. Finally, if you don't use them already it could be worth investing in some perches that help wear his nails down. My favorite are[ these](http://www.drsfostersmith.com/product/prod_display.cfm?pcatid=15079) because they have an irregular shape and also a smooth top to protect a bird's feet.

  • Wiley Pacocha

    I was commenting on the Ron White "joke" about wearing turbans through an airport. You think El Al security, an airport in a country that suffers from terrorist bombings monthly, puts their thumbs up the ass of everyone in a turban? No, because racial profiling doesn't work. Profiling based on your activity, demeanor, interaction with security personnel etc are all WAY more effective than low wage, low training dipshits given power and a badge (tsa) overwhelmingly subjecting brown people in ethnic dress to pat downs, strip searches and interrogation solely based on racial profiling. Hell, the TSA has never stopped a potential bomber, the DHS own internal reviews, as well as numerous third party reviews give them at best a 95% failure rate. They didn't stop the only two bombing attempts on flights from the US. Just look at the TSA's own Twitter feed of confiscated items if you want to know how safe they're keeping us from fake plastic grenade desk toys, shampoo bottles and nail clippers. But yeah, Ron White's the voice of reason; if you wanna bomb a plane, wear a John Deer turban so they'll think you're a nonmuslim murikan.

    My mom and sister did that for me! :D This past February, one weekend that was unseasonably warm, I heard an beagle bellowing outside. I ignored it for a little while because I have neighbor that has a beagle mix. the bellow got louder and didn't go away. So, I go outside and see this overweight beagle sniffing around and baying. A neighbor gives me a leash and collar and I catch him and bring him inside. He had no identification and his nails were so long, some of his toes were turning sideways. He was also so fat that he had no neck. So I called my sister who came over with dog nail clippers. After that, we went to a vet who scanned for a chip. He had one but it wasn't registered. So local animal control took him. Once they found the original shelter, he was shipped there where the original owner was contacted twice. At this time I was on an international job for my company and I was messaged by my sister asking if I wanted the dog and they will handle the adoption. So, technically, he's registered under my mother but I own him and take care of him. When I weighed him, he was 61lbs and as of a couple weeks ago, he's 36lbs. He's (Hank) honestly the best dog I've owned.

    A beginner kit recommendation on r/modelmakers!?! Gotta be the Tamiya Walker Bulldog! But seriously, any of those older Tamiya kits from that same era make great beginner kits. They're not very accurate or that well-detailed compared to the Uber-kits of today, but they're (comparatively) cheap and Tamiya kits always fit well and have the best instructions in the business. Tamiya's kit numbers run chronologically so you can tell the older kits by the low SKU number. As for tools it sounds like you've got the basics. I'd recommend investing in a good quality dedicated sprue cutter that you only use for cutting parts off the tree. No wire cutters or toenail clippers. Also having some nail files/emery boards to sand of the sprue nubs and raggedy edges. Best results I ever got with Zimmerit was with the Tamiya Zim "saws" and their polyester putty. Some folks use water-based construction adhesive (like liquid nails) but I haven't tried that. Don't use solvent based putty like the types for filling seams, it softens the plastic and can deform the surface.

  • Kaley Jacobi

    If you're just starting out on building I would recommend a simpler RDA than the Avocado 24. Reason being is that some have had trouble wicking it. I love it though, my favorite tank by far. [This] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DjnQqNfwqzI) is a great wicking tutorial for it. I've never tried pre-built coils in the avocado before but the "best" coil is a pretty subjective question. Example; I've found the "best" coils for me are simple twisted 26g SS316L dual coil reading at .2, which I vape at around 50-60w (although can easily go up to 70+ but a bit too hot for me). This again is subjective, as I'm waiting on some clapton wire which I then might decide is the "best" coil :) . If you're gonna use pre-built coils then all you need are ceramic tweezers to even out the coils and some wire cutters/nail clippers. The tank comes with a decent quality (not magic blue screwdriver) tool for you to tighten the post screws. Apart from that you're gonna need some cotton. Good luck!

    Here's my standard build tools blurb: Nail clippers from CVS or similar, this style... http://content.bodytoolz.com/data/default/images/catalog/350/BT6030.jpg Needle nose pliers, precision screwdrivers (the kind with different sizes in mm for each one), little scissors, metric hex wrenches, you can get these at Lowe's, home depot, or even a dollar store. Kuro or Coil Master coilers, Ohm reader, ceramic tweezers, and strap wrenches/bottle openers from fast tech. The ohm reader is mandatory, the rest of these are just nice to have. Can't forget the paper towels either. You'll also need wire and wicking material, and your new best friend, steam engine. I like SS between 24ga & 28ga depending. You can pick up spools on the cheap from slow tech if you're not in a hurry. I like rayon for wicking, but most people still use organic cotton pads. Rayon is about $12 for a lifetime supply at Sally's beauty supply. If there's one near you, good cotton pads can be gotten at a sephora for $9. Otherwise there's Amazon.

    Sat at a table with my best friend and Grosso. Never knew his real name. Just Grosso. He oiled his hair down like crazy. He had a routine. Every day he'd sit hunched over his chair in front of me. He'd pull out his nail clippers, and create a pile of finger nail and skin bits on the table. The thing was, he barely had any fingernails because he cut them so often. It didn't stop him. He'd bite at his fingers and then run his fingers through his hair to dry them. Repeatedly. Bite smooth bite smooth. He was like a rat. After he finished his routine of cut, bite, smooth, he'd gather up his little pile of trimmings and slide them off the table to the ground. He'd repeat this routine usually three times a class period. On test days, because he thought no one was looking, he'd add picking his nose and eating his boogers to his routine. Grosso was not a friend of mine. I'd let him know how openly I despised him and his disgustingness by giving him a death stare until he sheepishly put his nail clippers away and hunched even further into his rat like position. The kicker is, we were sophomores in high school.

    1. I generally work the shoulders and fingers before I climb. Fingers most importantly though, I find playing video games in the morning helps with that lol. Then I get on easier climbs and progress 2. Probably a circuit board. You either make your own problem or pick moves that you can work in a circle and do it for multiple repetitions 3. Starting out, definitely something comfortable and fits right. Once you reach the more advanced problems, you'll want to look for more downturned and aggressive shoes. They'll hurt though. Velcro and slippers are best since you rest often. This article can help: http://athleteaudit.com/the-10-best-bouldering-shoes-right-now 4. Definitely look at your feet. Are they on at all times? Having both feet on as much as possible puts less stress on the fingers and forearms. It's just something you'll notice the more you climb 5. I always have a brush, tape, nail clippers, and sandals to walk in

  • Arnulfo Jenkins

    What a cute lil nugget!!! My old guy is twelve years old. But we got him when he was eight weeks. He is my first dog and my first cocker and they really are the best dogs in my opinion. Maybe read up on puppy care? Decide how you want to potty train the little darling? Little puppies like that need a LOT of potty breaks (every few hours). I know a lot of people like to crate train their dog. If this is what you decide please do a lot of research! I've known many a full time working person that gets a two month old pup and then left them in a crate for 8 plus hours a day. Not saying you'd do that of course! I used a baby gate when I was gone and put my guy in a tile floored room. To each their own. Read up on cockers too! They're prone to certain problems like ear infections. So it's important to keep them clean! Oh and if I could do a few things over I'd introduce my dog to the nail clippers and toothbrush right. Away. Early introduction should make the process less terrible for them and you when they get older. :)

    I bought the long-handled Merkur eight years ago from a Reddit recommendation and found the plating starting to flake off a few years ago. I guess you rarely see the "after" pics from these BIFL recommendations, so here's some pics of the wear on one of the pieces: http://imgur.com/a/UI0iT In the first pic, notice the bubbling of the chrome on the right side, and the outright flaking on the left side. Most unusually, notice in the second pic that one of the posts seems to be impacting through the top? Not exactly sure what's happening there. In any case, there are no problems that prevent its use in the very near future, but the pics go to show that it's not BIFL. Not bad for $20, but I am on the lookout for a better replacement. Was eyeing the Muhle R41, but it seems that's also chrome plated. The only all-stainless-steel safety razor I can find is one by the great Japanese brand Seki (which also arguably make the best nail clippers), but it's $150+. Grr.

    Grab a few puppy pads. Dogs in new situations, even if house broken, may still potty in the house until the get into a routine. You'll also need a bowl size appropriately for the amount of food, a generous bowl for water, poo bags, toys, balls, squeaky toys, something for the dog to gnaw in or chew, a Kong, peanut butter, a crate, a dog bed, nail clippers, tooth paste/brush, flea/tick medication, heartworm medication, blankets. If you are in a area that is warm year round you won't need a dog sweater or jacket, if you are not then you'll probably want something to keep it warm on cold nights while walking. A mid-day dog walker could be helpful if you're not going to be home 8-9 hours at a time. You may be able to get dog health insurance through the ASPCA or a wellness plan through your local vet. Make sure you know where an emergency vet is located. Best to know where one is before you have an emergency.

  • Destin Gutmann

    I bit my nails since I was like 3 and finally kicked it. I'm 24. I started to kick the habit when I was 22 and it took over over a year and a half. Forcing myself to switch to a nail clipper was the best decision I made for myself. However, I still "groom" my nails though, but I'm 1000% better. So obviously it sounds like you dont want to use a nail clipper. Thats fine. What you need to do is find something that works for you. I recommend it being something you can carry in your pocket or something similar. Something that can also be precise when cutting your nails. Just make sure u switch to it every time you bite. Eventually, you may find a different tool thats even better, maybe you will overcome your fear of clippers (even if you dont use them). Just find whatever works for you and always have it on you. If you need to bite, go to the bathroom and fix it. If youre outside, just sit on a bench and dont care what other people think. Youll love that within a month youll feel a lot better

  • Darrick Brown

    55 degree bag is way too cold going life threatening for a typical late march start, even if you sleep exceptionally warm and are wearing all of your clothes. 20 degrees or 30 w/ liner is typical. Those foam pads work, but are pretty uncomfortable on shelter floors and more or less unusable on the "baseball bat" style ones up north. "Coleman" brand anything is usually a bad idea, especially for something you may be depending on in an emergency like a headlamp. That frog toggs rain suit is marginal at best (used it in 2013). The pants quickly shredded and got chucked, while the top had a lot of holes by the time I was done. I don't see a knife on your list. I recommend swiss army classic, also replaces your nail clippers and tweezers. Sunscreen is useful at the beginning. There are no leaves in when you start! Some chafe preventionn stuff, like body glide, may be a lifesaver.

  • Kristin Greenholt

    Ever notice how if you get a splinter in your hand, it hurts but if it goes under your fingernails, it's deadly painful? Yea... Someone (obliviously not me) will ensure his finger-nails get some love by gently and slowing sliding 10's of needles right under his nails until about halfway in. Then, someone (obviously not me), will take some nail clippers and yank his eyelids out and inside of that little cavity, they'd pour vinegar and baking soda mixed with ghost pepper puree. Then, they can take this tongue and split it 3 ways, sear it closed again with a red hot metal and they can take a picture and make the best meme for a Jame's Bond movie torture scene... using Trump. I'd prob just stare at him in disgust, but it's nice to dream up what others could do. I could prob help the CIA out with better and more effective torture techniques - but my heart can't handle watching it.

  • Lily Vandervort

    And I'm glad you have done research into it. But your mention of it being a surgical procedure is a big step up from the most common practice, which is essentially just hacking off the first knuckle with some clippers and little, if any, anesthesia. As I mentioned in another post, the highly surgical procedure of removing the nail and nail bed before laser cauterizing the incision is a very safe way to do this, but still has the risks of continued nerve damage. And again, as someone who lives with pain from nerve damage on a hourly basis, it's incredibly painful and not something I would wish on my worst enemy. Like others have mentioned, the knowledge is really what is important. There are "better" ways to declaw a cat than in the past, but the best possible course with the lowest rate of issue is to not declaw a cat at all.

  • Reymundo Kilback

    Don't feel so bad man. When my son was fairly new to the world, my mom was clipping his nails with those little nail clippers as she was watching tv (she volunteered to do it.) One of the things that sets her off is people doing drugs in front of everybody, including smoking pot. The news was on and there was a pot rally being featured. My mom was so busy yelling about the potheads that she clipped my sons finger as well. She looked down and it was bleeding away and I was like "WTF Mom?! Maybe try looking at what you're doing instead of getting mad about the potheads!!!" Anyways, after he was done crying, he didn't even notice the bandaid on his finger and life goes on. Best thing you can do is just apologize to the mom and dad and move on with life. Just feel better knowing that it has happened to other people so it's not like you're the only person out there that this has happened to.

  • Glennie Hirthe

    My "beauty" items: scissors, tweezers, razor, hair dryer, magnifying mirror. All other items are hygiene necessities: shampoo (used for body wash as well), deodorant, body lotion, argan oil, leave-in conditioner, toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, nail clippers, long body scrub cloth. As for my regimen: daily use of all hygiene necessities, except for the nail clippers and scrub cloth, which I use once a week. Oral hygiene happens a minimum of twice daily. The beauty items are employed as needed. As a teenager, I wore makeup. In my early 20s, I relearned to live happily in my own skin without it, despite all the marketing messages. Over the decades, it has saved me a lot of money and time, and I can play outside in the rain with impunity. I am going grey with great pride. Best of luck in your search for a system that fits your lifestyle!

  • Evelyn Mayer

    He said good price guys lol. If you're coming from nail clippers and just want a cheap, but legit set of nippers look on Amazon for xuron like [these](https://www.amazon.com/dp/B001TMZ7QA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_0swIybWKMT9D8). They are the ones I have. But if you really want cheap ones xuron make cheaper ones as low as like $10 but they might not have a spring open or cut perfect. I use the xuron ones for initial removal from the sprue, then some Gundam planet nippers for the close cut. But if you're just getting started don't worry about them. I will say though that for the price, the Gundam planet nippers are amazing. But don't feel like you have to save up and skip out on an HG or 2 to get these amazing nippers. But if you're flush and want the best, they're what I'd recommend.

  • Edward Rippin

    This is me. Except I haven't managed to kick the habit yet :( My nails grow in faster, sooo I just chew them off faster. I also haven't ever clipped my nails that I can remember. I also remember being vaguely uncomfortable with having someone else clip my nails, especially as a child. Any time I had fake nails or a manicure, I found the clipping to sort of freak me out. I read that baby's nails are going to be quite long when they're born, and new moms have suggested bringing mitties so that they don't scratch their face up. I'm going to do that, but I'd also like to be able to groom his nails so it's not uncomfortable for him. I'm thinking a nail file might be better? I can dull the edges and hone them right down without taking actual clippers to them? I read that the glass emery boards are best :)

  • Mateo Torp

    And you just have to commit, and slowly with extreme pain tear the rest of the nail off. I always keep my nails short because anything to do with having long nails goes through me. Scratching things, catching them on things and anything that reminds me that my nails need cutting results in a nail cutting session. I've actually learned a lot from my mistakes though. Now I start deep at the edge and then get further "out" as I cut around the nail. Then I cut away the central protrusion at an angle so it leaves he undernail alone and also keeps it trim and smooth. I cannot use nail clippers or scissors because they often leave a rough edge, I find a dull pen knife works the best and I've kept my nails nice and short for years with no problems.

  • Zoey Wilderman

    The security theatre calms *some* people...maybe that's enough... The reality is pretty stark, though...It's like if they take your nail clippers...If you can hijack a plane with nail clippers, you can do it *without* nail clippers. Not to mention the amount of things you can acquire inside the secure area that could effectively down an aircraft...Or, for that matter, the fact they don't inspect what's actually in that tube of toothpaste or the insides of that laptop battery. Obfuscating something to look like something else on an X-ray doesn't take a lot of creativity... But, again, if it deters *most* people, I guess it's working...Guess terrorists aren't sending their best and brightest...

  • Marjory Gleichner

    In that case: Testors plastic cement is my recommendation, chemically all of those plastic cements are identical to a point where you will not notice a difference. You will get fine looking miniatures for sure :-) As for the clippers, fine choice. Regarding what is left over after cutting - with good clippers you will sometimes have no cleanup, sometimes you will want to sand a bit. A bit of fine grained sandpaper or needle files will do the job, but I have used disposeable nail files stolen from my SO in the past :-) Best thing to do here is cut off just a bit of the sprue that the models come on and experiment with it, it is the same material and you will not break anything :-) It is easy to be overwhelmed and get in this analysis paralysis state. You will be fine :-)

  • Victoria Hartmann

    I posted [this](https://www.reddit.com/r/BabyBumps/comments/5uaxxi/bestie_is_the_best/?st=IZHNYKR5&sh=001cc42d) with the stuff my pediatric nurse best friend gave me that she said was awesome. I also have one of those Red Cross baby care kits that comes with nail clippers, brush, medicine applicators, etc. as well as baby Tylenol, saline nose spray, teething relief orajel. I probably have way more stuff than I need, and some of it I know we won't need for weeks/months. But I also know having things on hand and not trying to find a pharmacy open at 2:00 am when you have an inconsolable/sick infant is good.

  • Ruby Nicolas

    small fine pair of scissors to cut hair tourniquets sudo cream ( not really a necessity for a first aid but you always need it and its good to know where it is ) saline solution and round makeup remover pads fabric 'band-aids' not plastic ones baby nail clippers (not joking , the most damage a baby will do to their own body as a newborn is cut themselves constantly with unclipped nails ) a nose sucker ( cant remember the real name of them but kind of like a small turkey baster ) fez saline nose spray (well fez is a name brand here but if you have brand there it is one of the best ) betadine antiseptic ( might be the same as bactine but can't compare as don't sell that brand here )

  • Ari Leffler

    Protip: If you do get a flapper, I found the best way to deal with them is to use nail clippers do clip off the extra skin if its hanging way off your finger. Then, wash it with soap to make sure you don't get an infection. Dry with paper towel and then take a good dollop of Neosporin and rub it in the open skin. Now this is the important part: *don't use a bandaid or anything to cover it. It will heal faster if you leave it exposed to the air.* Also re-apply neosporin once every 12ish hours until it dosen't sting anymore. Then, when climbing, throw some tape on that bad boy (it'll hurt) and if shouldn't open again. This is how I dealt with flappers for about 8 months!

  • Alverta Barton

    There is a spot in the throat, lower part of your neck, central, just above the collar bones, that you can jab even the bluntest of objects into and choke someone. Typically, you'd use both hands, and stick both thumbs in there deeply. But it's tricky because you've left yourself open for the victim to fight back. And believe me, they have a lot to fight for. So it's best if you did your business with a partner. But honestly, if working alone, snapping their neck while in a headlock would work better. Sure, you don't get to use fancy tools like tiny screw drivers, nail clippers, or fingers, but it gets the job done.

  • Jude Borer

    Why? I ask and I don't mean anything rude by it. I usually ask because when I don't the nails usually just get barely tipped. My experience spans across three different vets and a handful of groomers (I move a lot). When I ask they do a better job, I assume because they know I'm actually going to check. It was actually for this very reason that I learned to just do it on my own, I wasn't happy at all with the nail clips I was getting. Maybe you do your best to do a good job each time on each dog, some of the people I've hired are great so I know good nail clippers are out there, but the majority of the time I've been really dissatisfied.

  • Sunny Vandervort

    Added onto agter the stove part. You do not want to burn them then as it still hot fill up 100 unites of water. Maybe a lil more so tablespoon atlest. Then suck it up witj an oral sryinge. Swuirt it backvinto the spoon and heat some more but not much. Butane lighter is atlot after and you want a black motor oil with light yellow color. Stor stir stir withvthos nail clippers until its all liwuid but will be verycthick. I usually had 1.5 100unit shot for 1 pill. Double checkcmy process and this has worked for me thouroughly last year but i never did it myself and watched a friend do it 150 times. But its thee best high for me. Better than dope and dillys

  • Mattie Cremin

    My doxie is really nail-trimming phobic, but he's gotten better as we've taken him to see our vet's best nail-trimming tech every six weeks. It's really worth having a pro take care of it, especially if your ween bucks/bites/freaks out to the point where he might hurt himself or the one wielding the clippers. One vet made us sedate him to trim his nails and the groomer refused to work with him. Finding our vet and this vet tech has made a difference for my ween... Keeping their nails trimmed really helps them. Whatever the deterrent, I've been there, and you can tackle it!

  • Bennie Frami

    I found nails to be absolutely terrifying at first, but it really isn't so bad once you get the hang of it! Just for the record, the best pair of nail clippers I've had (and the ones we use in out grooming salon) are from Dollar Tree, so you don't need to wait until Christmas! ;) The minimite dremels from Walmart are really inexpensive, and are also what we use in our salon. The paper bands that they come with are good for nails, but the diamond bands you can buy on Amazon wear the nail down more smoothly and quickly. They're kinda pricey (~15 each, I think?), but my dogs all seem to prefer them.

  • Hallie Gleichner

    I'd have so much I'd want to say to our dog, Ghost. We got him as a friend for our son who has some special problems. He's been such a good friend to him. Saddly Ghost is deaf. About 95% anyways. He doesn't really know he's deaf so I'm sure he's as happy as can be. But if I had this opportunity to speak with him I would tell him he's the best dog brother our son could ask for. We love you very much and please don't try to destroy the nail clippers we are only trying to help. You also weigh 90lbs and you can't just jump on strangers they think you're going to eat them.

  • Patience Wisozk

    Ugh my nails used to peel all the time when I was a swimmer, so I feel your pain. For cutting them, make sure you do it right after a shower so that they're nice and soft. Manicure scissors would probably be best, but I just use nail clippers and do little bits at a time. A nail strengthener might help prevent the peeling. Mine got much better when I started using nail wraps (Jamberry). Since they are thick, I would just rub the edges of the wrap instead of peeling the nail. If you go this route, DO NOT just peel off the wrap because that will damage the nail.

  • Lucile Schowalter

    >That was easily our best win for the season!!!! I see where you're coming from, but I disagree. There have been a ton of games this year that have been hard fought, starting with the first game against Philly, where the fat guy flipped off Westbrook. Then you had the OT win against the Suns. Then the nail biter against the Clippers in LA. That close one against the Rockets. Another close one in OT at Denver. A nice three-point win at Atlanta. You see my point? Every game is potentially "the best win." And I'm loving it!

  • Tyrell Emmerich

    When I was five I watched my mom sit and chew her nails four hours. I picked to the habit. Tried that gross nail polish, I still chewed, I found small and constant snacks helped. The best thing I ever did was buy a ton on nail files andfingernail clippers then keep them literally everywhere. Car, house, work, friends. And it worked. If you find you're bored and start chewing, snack on carrots or something small until it passes. Congratulations on stopping. I chewed for just over 30 years.

  • Esta Bailey

    I find that the best thing you can do for your cuticles and the skin around your fingernails is to leave them pretty much alone. This is particularly difficult when you've got active hangnails/torn cuticles, but picking, especially using your teeth/nails, seriously exacerbates the issue. I like to keep a pair of nail clippers (not cuticle trimmers, since I tend to get overenthusiastic with those) in my purse to trim anything that's snagging, and a little tub of hand cream for after I wash my hands.

  • Breana Vandervort

    The no-frills original Boppy nursing pillow is the best. Period. Love it, use it all the time even with my baby who is almost six months. It's also great for tummy time and for helping your baby learn to sit. Practically speaking, you'll need a thermometer (rectal gives the most accurate temps, and easier than you probably think to use) and baby nail clippers. Newborns are born with literal talons that grow approximately a foot in length every five minutes or so.

    [Lacross Nail Clippers #77834](https://www.amazon.com/La-Cross-77834-Lacross-Nail/dp/B000BUW4LM/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8) are the best I've ever had. I've had them for at least a decade. They just cut smoothly, with the right curve and right response. Unfortunately they are out of production. We've had a couple scares when we thought them lost, and tried to buy new sets, but nothing has been nearly as good.

  • Melyna Wiza

    This is the best answer, just keep bending them about an inch past where they come out of the tuner, they will break real easy. You can use nail clippers but the strings will dent the nail clippers. or you can do something like this. http://www.frets.com/FretsPages/Musician/Guitar/Setup/SteelStrings/Stringing/StStringingViews/coils.jpg

  • Addie Waters

    If you get a set of normal finger nail clippers that you would use, you can use those to trim their nails. You only need to trim a tiny little bit off, but honestly, it doesn't help *that* much. Ceramic tiles as a substrate have been the best at wearing the claws down and keeping them from being too sharp for me.

  • Sydnee Wunsch

    Find a mundane item and then buy them the ~~best~~ most expensive version of that dumb item. Like these [nail clippers](http://www.klhip.com/clipper). I used to be that guy, I bought whatever I wanted needed, and always loved getting some souped up overpriced version of something I would never pay for myself.

  • Abagail Bayer

    Ouch, that sucks. Don't feel too bad. It happens. Some animals have long memories. My husband accidentally got our dog's quick once during a nail clipping, and years later, she still hates the sight of nail clippers and freaks out if we try to clip (but yet a fucking nail dremel doesn't bother her). Like everyone is saying, food is your best bet. And patience.

  • Joanne Torp

    I love you. Sorry for sitting on you the first time we met. Grooming, nail clipping, scissors and coat clippers will happen, and it's for your own good.

  • Darwin Pagac

    Stealing food isn't that bad at all compared to what humans you love can do to you. Animals are the best. They would never Rob you or steal anything but food. Although my dog takes the nail clippers and occasionally my phone and runs off. Apparently he needs to make long distance calls....

    It was a breeze to get through security. You didn't have to get to the airport 2 hours before boarding to stand in line for 45 minutes only to be fingerbanged and have nail clippers confiscated. The best part is you didn't need to have a plane ticket to go to the gate and wait for those to arrive.

  • Ernie Russel

    Just a tip, but the best nail clippers I've ever bought (the same ones we used in the salon) were from Dollar Tree! They're the only ones that could cut through my shepherd's nails without breaking, oddly enough.

  • Monroe Cormier

    Please don't use any nail clippers..... use some proper nipper such as the god hand/gundamplanet one/ tamiya, anything would be better than nail clippers. You would also need some sanding sticks. Best of luck.

    I've used a clean pair of toe nail clippers for travel, super small. The best? Not really the cleanest cut, but I've never had a problem threading it through the needle either.

    Nail clippers. They are just 3 pieces of metal. Simple, yet elegant. Scissors are up there too. But as a college student, I like the bottle opener. It is the best.

    If her nails are dangerously long to the degree that they're altering how she walks, get the vet to sedate her and clip them once for health's sake. If not, no worries. As long as there's no great health risk, just take your time. go slow. Work on her feeling safe and trusting you--she has to feel safe and trust you at the current level before you progress. If she's a rural dog stressed by collars, there's a good chance collars and leashes are entirely new concepts for her. I'd get a thin lightweight buckle collar with a rivet-on id tag (no dangly tags), put it on and leave it on 24/7 for now. That way there's no daily stress of putting it on / taking it off.

    I posted this a while ago. Technically, we weren't exploring, but we ended up at a deserted/defunct campground, so it seems to fit nicely here... Went camping with my girlfriend back in the late 1990's. I think I'd just graduated college (maybe it was my senior year). Anyway, we got a little pup tent and super basic camping gear from K-Mart. We get on the road and just drive aimlessly. Our whole intent was to just spend 4 days camping in different places and visiting whatever attractions we came across. We didn't really have any destination in mind. The first night, we stop for dinner at some truck stop in Missouri and ask the waitress if there are any campgrounds around. She tells us there's one that's out of business, but people still crash there. We drive there and everything is locked up. You can still get in, but the bathrooms and lodge are all locked. It also looks pretty dumpy with a lot of garbage. The place is deserted aside from another couple who set up camp pretty close to the entrance. Being a dog lover, my girlfriend notices that they've got a beagle and she gets all gushy about how cute he is and blah blah blah. I drive around the campground which is laid out kind of like the Olympic Rings (or two figure 8's stacked on top of one another). We get to the very back of the campground and it's filthy. We actually get a little nervous because it seems like this place is just a haven for drunks, drug addicts, and assholes who come here to party. But no one is here, just their remnants. As I'm driving, I see a little side-road that's a bit overgrown. I figure it might be less used and we'd be less visible, so i head down and it's actually a nice little clearing with 4 or 5 sites. They're pretty clean and we set up camp. We play a game she brought called Mancala until it gets dark and then we just hang out talking. Around 10 PM, we notice the very faint campfire of the couple we passed earlier. Nothing special. Just noticed it through the trees and didn't realize we were that close. We head into the tent and proceed to get frisky. She was kind of vocal (but not screaming or anything) and I hear a dog barking. It's not just a random bark. This thing is barking like crazy. It sees something or is barking out of concern/fear. Girlfriend keeps riding. Then, we hear a loud blood curdling yelp from the dog. Then the woman screams. Then we hear a male voice yelling. We can't make out the words, but it sounds like an argument. Girlfriend abruptly stops. I've got a handful of tit and a thumb on a clit and we're both silent and motionless. It was pitch black, but I can only imagine we both had confused and concerned looks on our faces. The argument continues and we're trying to make out what's being said. Then I hear a twig snap somewhat nearby. Not close, but not far either. All of a sudden, I get this intense feeling of dread. I guide her off and whisper, "Get in the car now." I grab my clothes and realize she's getting dressed. My heart is racing. I'm terrified. I really feel like someone is coming for me and wants to kill me. I say quietly but forcefully, "Don't get dressed. Just get... in... the... car..." She says in her normal volume, "I'm not going out naked!" That's when we hear a guy say, "Did you hear that?" It was quiet, but it was clear. They couldn't have been more than 100 feet away. Our car was maybe 10-15 feet from the tent. I pull the keys out of my pocket and whisper, "We gotta go NOW!" I unzip the tent and we run to the car. As I hit the unlock button, the headlights and taillights come on. There are two guys standing about 50-60 feet away. They freeze for a second and then start running at us. We jump in the car and as I'm jamming the key in the ignition, they get to the front of the car. I get the car started and I look up to see these two standing there. They're about mid-30's and look like classic bedraggled "hillbillies." One has a big stick in his hand and he's holding it up. I had backed up to a tree, so I could only go forward. Keep in mind that my girlfriend and I are buck naked. The dome light hasn't even gone off yet and I hear the one guy say, "Whacha all got in there?" I scream, "MOVE!" The other guy comes to my girlfriend's window, leans down, and says, "She got some nice titties!" (And she did. They were spectacular.) She grabs her clothes and bunches them up to cover up a little. I roll down my window about 2 inches and yell, "I WILL RUN YOU THE FUCK OVER, MOVE!" The guy with the stick says, "I'll take some of them titties first!" The two start laughing and the guy at the window leans down and the first thing I think is that he's grabbing a rock to break the window or he's going to knife the tire. I throw it in drive and tap the gas hoping to scare him away. Hillbilly with the stick doesn't even flinch. He slams the butt of the stick on the hood, looks positively evil as he looks me square in the eye and yells, "You gimme all the money you got and you can go." My girlfriend's window shatters, she screams, I hit the gas, hillbilly rolls up and off the side of the hood, and I'm off. We get to the front of the campground and there's a classically "hillbilly" pickup truck blocking the entrance. The couple who were there are now gone (their car was gone), but their tent is on fire. I quickly scan the entrance area and see a broken chunk of fence (wood ranch fence with the three horizontal wood pieces). I head right for it and get out onto the road. We just haul ass. Maybe a mile down, we see the beagle run-limping along the road. My girlfriend screams to stop for the dog. I slam on the brakes after making sure no one was following. She gets out and finishes getting dressed. I'm still buck naked, so I jump out and start throwing on clothes. She gets the dog and his paw is all bloody. I see headlights coming from WAY behind and scream, "GET IN THE FUCKING CAR!" And we're off again. We get to a little one horse town and nothing is open. Even the fucking police station is closed! We park behind the police station and my girlfriend checks out the dog. He's ok, but it looks like someone stepped on his foot and he was bleeding from around his nails. She wrapped his paw, we kind of rested for an hour or two until a cop finally showed up. We told him what happened and he actually yelled at US for trespassing. Ok, yes, we did, but seriously?? He says he'll check it out and that we should "head on back home." I tell him I want to file a police report for my insurance and he says, "I don't have time for that. I have to go see a campground." He just leaves. My girlfriend and I wait until morning and file a police report with another officer. The first guy never came back and never reported anything. And we left. Instead of finishing our nice little weekend adventure, we drove straight to my girlfriend's mom's house. The dog had a tag, but it didn't have owner information. It just had the dog's name, "Rookie." My girlfriend's mom had 5 dogs and lived on a farm. She was happy to take in Rookie and he seemed happy to have a bunch of playmates. We looked online to find the owners, but the internet back in the 90's wasn't anything like it is today. We never found the owners. We never found anything about that campground. Rook must have been fairly young because he lived until 2011. This happened in 1998. My girlfriend and I are no longer together, but her mom liked me and sent me an email when Rookie died. Anyway, that's it. Oh, I almost forgot. Damage to the car was $4800. Bodywork and paint on the hood, new front bumper (got cracked somehow), new window, new headlight assembly (broke it on the fence), and had to get the right side repainted because I scraped the fence front to back as I was leaving. Thank god for insurance. And since I'm sure someone will ask... The campground was north or northeast of Jordan, Missouri. TLDR: Went camping, got harassed by hillbillies, rescued a dog, big insurance bill.

    This probably isn't the right sub for it, but if you were my friend and asking about how to be datable, I'd start with liking yourself. I was raised in an oppressive homeschooler household and when I left, I did not like myself at all, including how I looked and the clothes I wore. I ran away 9 years ago. The first couple years were rough but eventually, I found my way from a socially stunted weirdo to a competent adult person. If you were starting from 100% complete scratch like I was, this is what I'd say. YMMV. Appearance - **Wear clothes that fit.** Structured pieces (jeans, blouses, jackets) almost always look more polished than unstructured pieces (leggings, sweatpants, t-shirts), so try to add at least one structured piece to each outfit. - Check out /r/femalefashionadvice, especially the #WAYWT (what are you wearing today) threads. Not for advice but to see what you like/don't like and build your own sense of taste. - **Accessories make a huge difference.** Some earrings and a necklace can make a plain outfit look intentional. - You don't have to wear makeup. But if you want to, the clerks at Ulta and Sephora are more than happy to help a newbie choose a couple products and learn to apply them. (Ulta has a "drugstore brand" section that is no more expensive than Target or CVS.) Sephora even has free classes on things like winged eyeliner and contouring. - You don't have to "do" your hair, but keep it tidy. No split ends, keep it brushed, get monthly maintenance on bangs if you have them, etc. If you want to do your hair, don't fight your natural texture. - You don't have to "do" your nails but keep them tidy. Don't bite them, keep them trimmed. If you like nail polish, it can be a relaxing activity to give yourself a weekly manicure and/or pedicure. - I always feel like a whole new person when I get my brows waxed. It's a monthly ritual I make room for in my budget. Back when I could not afford it, I shaped my brows with a dollar store brow razor. Feeling Smart - **Read a news story every day**, or try listening to NPR on your commute. Knowing about current events will make you feel a lot better. - **Read for pleasure.** (Or listen to audiobooks if you're not a good reader.) 80% of Americans did not read even one book last year. It can be anything, fiction or nonfiction. You'll feel smarter referencing a book you read recently rather than a TV show you saw. - **Ask a lot of How & Why & What If questions.** "How does that work?" "Why do we do it that way?" "What if no one did that?" It can be about simple things. For example, you might decide you want to know how to make perfect cookies. So you might wonder "Why are each of these ingredients in the recipe? How do they work? What would happen if I left out baking soda?" and look it up. Now you know more about household chemistry *and* it's fun. - **Visit museums.** Art museums, science museums, history exhibits... any museum. Even zoos and aquariums. A lot of them have free days for locals, if budget is a concern. Read the plaques on the wall about each item. Look at the exhibits for a good long time. - **Go to local festivals.** Art shows, cultural pride, whatever. Experience something outside your normal life. - **Take in some live performing arts** (theatre, opera, ballet, dance, symphony). A lot of them have discounts on certain days or even free events. Support artistry in your community. It won't all be very good but it will all make your experience of the world richer. - **Go to events** about things unrelated to your career. Check out Eventbrite and Meetup and see what's out there. Bonus, you'll meet new people who are also doing interesting smart things. Being Interesting - All the stuff that helps you feel smart will also make you interesting. - **Take up a hobby.** It can be free (like birdwatching) or expensive (like painting DnD miniatures). Try ones that sound like work (like web design) and ones that sound like doing nothing (like meditation). Try challenging yourself (like finding the best hamburger in the city by trying a different one every week). Try a few different ones until you find one that inspires you. I'm really into baking bread right now because it's the intersection of science and art (and deliciousness). - **Volunteer in your community.** Choose a cause that speaks to you (poverty? literacy? mental health? something else?) and get in touch with nonprofits in your area. Even if you feel like you have no skills, nonprofits still need people to sort donations, file paperwork and answer phones. Finally... social skills. - **Ask personal questions.** Especially if you are an introvert or feel socially awkward. It keeps the focus on the other person *and* they will find you more interesting. It's like magic. You can start with a basic question like "What do you do?" and then keep gently asking. "Why did you choose that? What do you like about it? What's the craziest thing that ever happened at your job? I've always wondered this about people in your profession..." or my favorite one: "You're kidding." They'll get excited and tell you an even bigger story. - **Smile.** When people you know approach you, smile during the greeting. - **Laugh at people's jokes.** It makes them feel valued. - **Ask people for small favors.** It's silly but it works. Ask to borrow a pen and they will feel closer to you. - **Ask people questions about "nothing".** "Have any plans this weekend? See any good movies lately? How's your dog doing?" whatever. It builds a thread of friendliness. It feels useless at the time but after a few weeks or months you'll realize you know a whole lot about their lives. - **Find the person sitting alone**, especially at an event. They are just as anxious as you. - **Get up and go.** It's really really hard to make new friends or have a memorable date if you're just sitting somewhere. Do something. Go to a museum. Play mini-golf. Take a walk in the park. Just don't meet for coffee and stare at each other.

    In the middle of the dark, red-tinged cavern that grew with every new permumatation of the mechanical cubes, a shape could be observed. The cubes formed what I could call a circle, but out of cubes; the cubes cloned themselves in a fevirous pace, each cube producing two more of themselves, stacking higher and higher and higher. I tried to run away. The cubes were building a thing. Some...thing. I looked and looked and the ground melted behind my steps, as I tried to find a way out of this nightmare of an abyss. The cave's immensity meant a fog was at the edges, and when I broke into this fog, the whirlwind of cubes appeared once more at the head of me, only this time I was looking at the opposite side of before. The shape in the center had no color, only the void. It's shape was a perfect representation of a rectangular prism. I felt a personality of dread reaching from it to me. An atmosphere of hate. A cloud of loathing, filling the air around me, making my skin feel tight and heavy, pushing it's way through every orifice of my body, all to tell me just how much it hates me, it will never let me sleep. It hates me. It owns me. I did my best to wake myself, until the shape loomed above me, the cubes screeching in a dog whistle's pitch, and the corner's reached down, grabbing my hands, and pulling my presence of mind into the waking world. It is a bizarre experience. I do not think I can write just how this feels. The presence of mind...Myself. The voice I think in, the only thing that I can truly know exists, pulled through it's own mental constructs. It previously had inhabited a representation of my body in a dream and now this void was pulling me out of me, pulling me into the whirlwind of mechanical cubes, up and up and up to the top of the cave, until the cave started forming a new shape, the cubes taking their place and losing their individuality until the outlines of my bedroom formed. I fought, I struggled as much as I could against this void, trying to regain control desperately, until I was crammed once more into my physical body. I was awake once more, covered in sweat despite the cold surrounding me. It grew weak, outside of wherever I was, it grew less and less and I pushed it away until once more the air was just air, no feelings associated with it. I was awake once more and I sat up, threw my blankets off, and got out of bed. After minutes of sitting on the bed, trying to overcome what just happened to me, I finally felt the thirst of my human body make itself known once more and went to the kitchen to get some water. There, surrounding me, I saw every character I had ever met in my mind and writ down on paper or typed into a file. The purple eyes of the shape-shifting witch in the corner laughed at me, a mist around her, forming itself into the shape of pajama bottoms and an old t-shirt, her hair forming an impression of a bedhead. She grinned at me, welcoming me into my kitchen as if she owned the place and I a mere guest. The witch had her arm hooked around the more awkward Den, who had a melancholic expression, dressed in jeans and a polo. Den Smith sat in front of the window, covered in furs and an axe on his hip, but underneath lay the vestiges of his first life: a graduate's suit, awkwardly fit, with a resume in the pant's pockets. In the other half of the room, some sat, some standing, was the crew of the cutting edge space transport, the Shrew. The spaceship was parked in the backyard, the hull gleaming in the morning sun, surrounded by the half-formed ghosts of a million and one characters who I had never given enough strength to form individual personalities. "We have to talk." The space commander's gruff tone greeted my ears. He was on the nicest of the chairs, next to the character Marv. The contrast between them stood out remarkably, an athletic, stern human from Earth and a jovial, thin and stretched man from Mars. "What about?" I said, slowly feeling my mind filling my body once more until I no longer had to think about how to breathe or move a limb. I felt a cold, wet touch on my shoulder as the witch materialized behind me, rubbing my shoulders while standing closer than any of my past girlfriends. "You know, exactly why." Her tone sent shivers down my spine, as it bordered along the line of flirty and psychotic. She ended her sentence by turning her nails into fine knives and lightly sketching a cut onto my shoulder, before melting into a fog on the floor. "You've abandoned us." Den, out-of-place Den, stood stronger than I had ever imagined him to. "You haven't given us a beginning, nor have you given us an ending." He continued on. "I'm...I'm sorry. What do you want me to do?" "Stop holding on. Let us go. Let yourself go. You carry weight even as you try to lose it." Dan Smith said this, in an enlightened tone that fit with the character arc I briefly imagined for him before leaving his story at a few paragraphs. "We fade into the void even as we speak. But you'll never grow until you follow through with what you have planned." "Is that all?" I said, my body feeling heavy and confused. "Is that...really it?"

  • Einar Bosco

    Heh.. I got a friend just like you. I tried to answer as much as could but I'll have to read the manga again to answer some of them, especially the timeline ones. Now, I'm by no mean an expert so keep that in mind. * The brain being shot is totally different because the regenerations actually repairs it. It's still the same one. The point of the decapitation is that you end up with two head in the end. One is yours, and it's not the one attached to the body. It's no longer yours to control. The reason why this is so frightening is that there is absolutely no way for you to tell, to know for sure if you die, if you truly disappear expect if you were the one with the head severed. This is basically the same when you see a clone or a robot with an identity crisis because he remembers, he thinks all of these memories are his. For him, he is the original. So in the same way, the point is the separation. Not the fact that you're being "build" again. Like Sato said, it's about using two life at the same time. *Imh, when the body regenerate completely, it goes to a "save file". So that not only the top of your head remains unchanged but also the nails, the tiny hairs all over your body. Heck, even the eyebrows! * The thing is, the arm being removed is not the cause of death. When they die, they start regenerating and wake up in the middle/ toward the end of it when the body is already functional. If you look at the very first chapter, after nagai was rolled over you can clearly see he's still regenerating. Of course the anime isn't going to do that since it would be a pain with the 3d model and all. * For the "daily IBM usage count". It's not necessarily linked to the body. The IBM isn't really a part of you per say. So I don't think that would work. * Tosaki's grudge is clearly related to his wife, we'll probably have some answers in this month's chapter. * Tanaka has been held captive for 10 years so, of course, he wanted to slaughters some people especially with Sato pushing him this way. He no longer considered himself human, meaning he also didn't consider humans to be like him. During the first encounter Sato pretended to be willing to live peacefully among humans which of course pissed off Tanaka a bit but he didn't really say anything. Later on, his anger is starting to decrease and he's starting to realize that not everyone is bad. * Humanity has always rejected what was different. We're often scared of what we don't know or comprehend. In terms of experimentation, I'm sorry to tell you that, but it has already happened. Just look at the Nazi human experimentation, they even used children. Of course they never gave their consent just like Tanaka. The way they treat Ajin is not surprising at all. * No one cares if an Ajin disappears. People are busy, they got enough problems on their own. If it does not concerns them directly they're not going to look into it. * We really didn't see much of Kei's mother but she seemed cold and analytical when talking about the dog and answered what she was supposed to say in order not to get in trouble when questioned. I don't see a problem here. * While in captivity, Tanaka didn't necessarily knew how to or was not willing to use the IBM before Sato convinced him. Killing other human beings is a big deal you know. * I don't think it's inconsistent to have different abilities regarding IBM. People are different, what's the big deal? *They weren't that terrible, they just didn't expect Nakano to be a threat since he was just a kid.

  • Delores Hagenes

    Right, sorry, I did feel like I was missing something. [Here's a Google Drive link](https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B3KfJYyYkERAQ201eEdjRnVaLXM/view?usp=sharing) to our draft deck. Yes, it's a deck because it's a platform at sea in one of the most inland land areas on the continent. Expect it to update as I have time to tinker with it. To list the current items here: * **Congressional term limits:** I haven't done any research to see if any state's tried this yet, but just as we pioneered initiative and referendum I think we could pioneer state-imposed term limits for Congress by coming up with limits and then saying that anyone who's exceeded them isn't eligible to be listed on the ballot for that office. * **Mandatory funding of initiated and referred measures:** Look what the Legislature and the Governor are doing with IM22, not wanting to fund it because they don't want oversight. To Hell with that. I doubt I'd be alone in seeing them mandated to fund it and anything else the voters put into place just so they can't override us without outright repealing things we vote for. * **Automatic voter registration:** A lot of people don't vote because they don't register for whatever reason. Register everyone to vote automatically upon their 18th birthday or when they renew their driver's license— as an Independent if they don't choose a party affiliation— and maybe we could get more turnout. * **Open primaries:** This was the part of Amendment V that I think a lot of people were behind and would have gotten them to vote for it if it weren't for the hiding of party affiliation on ballots. I'm sure that's what killed Amendment V. If we're going to have one-party rule this could at least go toward making sure the party members in charge aren't on the far right and are at least acceptable for most people even if not ideal. * **Audit trail on elections:** We should have mechanisms in place to make sure our elections are absolutely impervious to tampering. We need to make sure that the methods of voting and tallying are always subject to an audit that allows accurate results. We shouldn't use purely electronic voting because there's no way to protect against or detect vote tampering (that I'm aware of, at least). * **Transparency:** Admittedly this one's kind of vague, but again, this state's government doesn't like to be held accountable for what it does. For a state that used to call itself The Sunshine State before Florida got all pissy with us about that, our state government really doesn't like sunshine laws. We need more of them. Even if we get more, we'll need more still. Our motto is "Under God the people rule." Unfortunately we're kind of flying blind. * **Marijuana legalization:** Before you go thinking I'm some burnout stoner who just wants to be able to get baked whenever and wherever I want, this isn't a fight I now or ever have had a dog in. I engage and have engaged in absolutely zero chemical recreation, past and present. That said, our justice system and law enforcement could make much better use of their time and resources than making active efforts to bust people for weed. There's no reason our jails or prisons need to house people who will just put themselves under *de facto* house arrest with Cheetos and The Price is Right. Those are the things I've come up with so far. I've begun looking over [title 12 of SDCL (Elections)](http://sdlegislature.gov/Statutes/Codified_Laws/DisplayStatute.aspx?Type=Statute&Statute=12) to see if there's any way I can identify that the system is rigged against parties other than the national duopoly and maybe come up with some ways to change those. If you've got ideas on needed state-level reforms, I'm all ears (or, in this medium, eyes). Seriously, I'm not being the least bit sarcastic when I say that. If you think the deck's missing a plank, grab a hammer and nails and tell me where the hole is.

    Here are a few tricks you can try to help with a feisty Beagle! 1) Try massaging his paws for a few minutes before bringing out the clippers. Clip one nail, massage a little bit. Clip another, massage. Rinse repeat. It takes patience, but eventually he may let you speed up and clip them quickly. 2) Try having a second person who the dog loves and trusts petting and loving on him. Let them give him treats so he knows what a good boy he is being! 3) Try wrapping him in a blanket with only the paw you are working on and his head uncovered. This may simulate a [Thunder Shirt](http://www.thundershirt.com/) (Warning, auto-play video when opened) and keep him calmer during the clipping. Don't wrap him too tightly or he may freak out over being unable to move freely. 4) Try giving him a [Peanut Butter Ball](https://www.amazon.com/KONG-Classic-Dog-Toy-Small/dp/B0002AR15U) filled with peanut butter. Our Beagles will let you do almost anything to them (except take the ball) when they have this ball. **This only works if your dog is the kind who doesn't run away with treats and toys.** 5) Take him on more frequent walks/longer walks on concrete. Obviously the effects of walking on hard surfaces can be detrimental so please keep moderation in mind. That said, walking on concrete or the street helps keep your dog's nails shorter for longer because they naturally wear away on the ground. **This is NOT a replacement for trimming nails in any way. You still need to maintain their nails.** Lastly, I want to mention that grinders aren't very good for their nails - or ours for that matter. They weaken the nail making it more likely to split, splinter or break. Also, it is very easy to over grind. If you really feel like you'd like to dull his nails you can use a coarse grit human nail file (you would need to use the file as you would for human hands, filing in only one direction and not back and forth) or [claw covers!](https://www.amazon.com/Soft-Claws-Nail-X-Large-Natural/dp/B0006NE4Y4/ref=cm_cr_arp_d_product_top?ie=UTF8) Let me know if I've gone off the rails! Good luck!

    I think I'm only realizing now that the past month and a half have probably been harder than it should have been due to a bad reaction to medication I was prescribed for my PCOS. The short version is that I had to make 3 uncomfortable phone calls yesterday, one to my gyn with the result that I've just stopped the medication (which doesn't do anything for my PCOS then), the second to my work's EAP because of my mental state, and the third to the counselor they recommended. The nurse suggested it could be a few weeks until things return to somewhat normal. sigh. I just don't understand why my body can't just behave normally. **Round 21 goals wrap up** A: Sif's nails - She's better with having her feet touch and letting me file her nails, but they're still long and we've definitely got more work to do. B: Lose more weight? - I haven't really done anything intentional here, but I started the round at 161.6 (running avg 160.56). Today I was 157.2 (running avg 157.45). The simple fact that I've maintained, and perhaps even lost a tad I think is good. C: Keep running - This is a big laugh. The sun rising later and then cooler weather totally fucked this. D: Finish pig paper - This one I think I could consider well done. I've got one last thing to straighten out with NCBI about sequence submission. But the content of the paper is done and with reformatting could be submitted. E: Comic books, sell them - Not even close. **Sprint wrap up** 1. ~~Get through Fall Workshop, only one more week until it's all done.~~ 2. Keep working on the dog's nails regularly. - see above 3. Keep weighing food and paying attention to serving size. - This is probably what has helped my comments above about my weight. 4. After this week, start using the elliptical regularly. - Also laughable because even on the easiest setting the thing is like level 10 difficulty. 5. What else do I need to do with the pig paper to get it out? - see above 6. ~~Print comicbook list~~, pick out 5 to start with, find them, photograph them, list them. - see above 7. Finish editing the LRSP and get it ready for feedback. - Also not really close, but this is a huge project. **Today** * Sif's nails * elliptical, plank, pushups *Work related* * LRSP edits * file incident form * follow up with other incident investigation * plus the incident form I received yesterday *Other (today)* * listen to voicemail * zappos return * run dishwasher * Gap return * workshop thank you cards, finish the four remaining * drop off recycle * dog park * groceries for tomorrow * program representatives phone numbers into my phone * call them with my script

    For baths, I honestly prefer to take her somewhere to get it done. But if she gets dirty between going to a groomer, I have a waterless shampoo made by burts bees that actually works pretty well at cleaning up dirt. It's not as good as a real bath, but it's nice for in between. Especially because my puppy is all white, you can really tell when she's grimy and needs a touch up. For nails, I use a grinder instead of clipping. It has a metal file so it doesn't get dull, and it smooths out the nail so there aren't sharp edges. My puppy is deaf so the sound doesn't bother her and doing her nails is a fairly painless process for all, but for a hearing dog it might take a little more of a slow introduction because of the sound the file makes. For teeth, I don't brush them, I use an oral cleaning spray made by nylabone. It has green tea extract in it for antibacterial properties. You just pull back their lips and spray it all over their teeth, and then they'll naturally lick at it and kind of get it all over the inside of their mouth too. The first couple times she hated it, but now she loves the taste and loves getting a good spritz all over her teeth. Worked wonders for her awful breath!

  • Lacey Ullrich

    Right. I do think debarking solely for convenience is pushing it a bit far. It's definitely not a replacement for training the dog. That said, you really don't ever know exactly how much noise you're going to get from a dog and in what situations until you've found out the hard way, and you never really know how much noise your neighbors will tolerate until they've complained. >Are you referring to those claw cap thingies (like fake nails for cats?!) or other alternatives? Yes, I was mostly referring to the nail caps a la [Softpaws](https://www.softpaws.com/) and similar! People occasionally bring their cats in to the shop to have these put on. They're super simple. Little plastic nail caps. Trim kitty's nails first, apply a dot of glue inside the nail cap, slide cap onto nail, and boom - that's it. Once they're on, kitty shakes himself off and goes back to life as normal. They're usually supposed to stay on for 4-6wks and can be a literal lifesaver if kitty finds the furniture or the curtains more attractive than the scratching post. The other (less effective, I'll admit) alternative I had in mind was simply trimming nails regularly and then filing the edges with a hand file for a smooth, rounded tip.

  • Elenora Cole

    I started using a nail file on my old golden when he had to stop going for the long walks (which wore his nails down). We call it "going to Mr. GiGi's". I have to do it frequently, but it's less bothersome than clippers and it has turned into a pleasant few minutes for he and I most every evening. When he was a puppy, we asked the vet giving his first inoculation what his best dog tip was-- he told us to mess with their teeth and feet every day to acclimatize them, b/c those are the areas most dogs are skittish about. We didn't do it every day, but we did do it a lot, and consequently, the old guy will let us (and the vet) do anything do his teeth and feet. The new big guy we inherited when he was 7 is willing but wary about the feet handling, but is very suspicious re anything to do with his teeth. Tooth brushing usually ends after a few seconds when he clamps down on the toothbrush and won't let go, with the end sticking out of his mouth. We've started calling him "Winston".

    On the very night the store management was having a pest control company come to the store to shoot the sparrow I instead convinced them to try a humane sparrow rescue system to try to catch and release the sparrow. In less than 24 hours I had captured and released the sparrow shown above back into the wild. It's little talons were long and overgrown and its beak was crooked due to living inside the unnatural environment for so long. In the wild the birds naturally file their beak and nails on trees and other surfaces. While living inside he survived on cereal, corn meal, grits, bird seed, and dog food. He would peck open bags of food or eat whatever scraps fell on the ground. He drank water from a mop bucket, a dripping coffee pot or even condensation frost on the freezer piping. It was a mostly awesome place for him to live except the lights are on all the time and music is playing and there are no other birds. In the mornings he would go to the front windows as the sun rose to watch his friends outside. Now he is back in the wild to join them!

    Ok so your Husky is only going to get taller and more active, so you might want to bring in a professional trainer. Talk to them about teaching your kids how to help with the training process and make sure the dog will listen when the kids say "no". Also, not sure if this is what's happening, but make sure your kids are supervised at all times with the husky. You can observe how they interact and tell them to stop sitting on the floor when playing with her (which is sounds like you are already doing). As for the nails, I don't know whether you can trim them further but you can always ask a groomer to file them down a little (if there is enough nail to do that) Worst case scenario, get those kids safety goggles! (j/k)

  • Kamron Rau

    Start with a groomer and go from there. Gain some confidence before you try to trim your dogs nails back - get your vet or groomer to show you how to watch for where the nail becomes pulpier towards the quick. Practice with tiny snips - and even just holding the paw the way you would need to and making the movement. It's a bit different than the way you'd hold her paws to file. You also want to learn how to handle your dog. What works for your dog might vary from others, but if she isn't properly restrained she has more opportunity to work herself up, move around and get quicked. It is important that you are confident and calm - fake it until you make it as you learn. If you are hesitating or overly indulging her anxiety you are reassuring her that she is right, she should fear nail trims. Please do not use human nail trimmers. Our nails are shaped very differently. Use the right tool for the job.

  • Janie Jacobs

    One of my dog's nails cracked and my sister coated it in acrylic nail gel and out it under the UV light to harden, repeat for a few layers. Idk if you or anyone you know has that stuff handy, but it worked great. Took two weeks for the acrylic to crack off (that stuff is super hard) and by then the nail had grown and the quick had healed, I was able to just trim off the cracked nail and file it. If you do this, make sure it's only thin layers of acrylic, because it has an exothermic reaction under the UV light and you don't wanna burn your dogs hurt nails.

    The big pet chain stores (PetCo, Petsmart) have grooming departments that will do it for $10 as long as you file proof of current vaccinations with them the first time you bring your pet in. I don't have to do it with my cats, since their claws come off on the scratching posts, but it makes taking care of my dog's nails a million times easier.

    What is less important than keeping your dog's nails trimmed is keeping them filed. If you cut his nails and then call him up into your hammock with you, I can guarantee you will get a rip. After you clip his nails, they have sharp edges. Try running him a bit on gravel or on asphalt to file them down.

    Kind of as a general disclaimer, I'm definitely not a professional dog trainer by any means. I more or less popped on just hoping to get a ball rolling on your thread since you had an interesting problem. But anyways, from what I have experienced and understand while working with dogs, the muzzle won't necessarily stop the actions driving the behavior, it might just stop the consequences of it. I groom dogs at work and sometimes we muzzle for, say, doing the nail trim. It probably won't stop the dog from going at us, but we need to be able to do their nails. It just prevents somebody from getting hurt. I think for your dog the muzzle training would be temporary until you train your dog out of resource guarding these things in the street. It could be a first preventative measure because it seems that as of now, your treat or command means nothing when they see the juicy paper or whatever on the street. You never know what's on that paper, what it's last touched, or what is wrapped up inside (my area for example is a high meth area, and you never know what junkies will hide their needles in). While he isn't a threat to anybody else, he is definitely a threat to himself. They make looser [basket style muzzles](http://www.all-about-great-dane-dog-breed.com/images/muzzles/Great-Dane-Muzzle-Winter-Metal-Safe-Adjustable-big.jpg) that are not as restrictive that I think would work better for you than the tighter muzzles designed for bitey dogs. You could also try something called a "duck muzzle" which is a muzzle in the shape of a duck beak. It's actually kind of cute and not that restricting-but the front is open so he could in theory still get to the paper on the ground. It does however look less intimidating and scary, and I don't think it would make people as scared of a dog as a normal muzzle would. I also like [this](https://muzzleupproject.files.wordpress.com/2014/01/img_9924.jpg) muzzle. It's much looser on the bottom and not restrictive, but it would prevent your dog from getting on stuff on the ground.

    Texas horticulturalist chiming in! There are great suggestions & tips in here, but I felt the need to give a thorough account of the bigger picture and all the variables. My credentials: I have 10 years of professional horticulture experience in Central Texas, and a BS in Botany. TL;DR: There isn't a quick answer because there's lots to think about. My top diagnosis is an incorrect watering regimen (see below). If you want to talk to someone in person about it, I recommend calling up your local [AgExtension] (http://agrilifeextension.tamu.edu) office & asking if you can bring in a sample & some photos of the plant. Or, contact a few local garden centers. Most "big box" places don't staff horticulturalists, but sometimes you get lucky and find a plant nerd. Seek second opinions, and don't buy the first quick-fix offered. Short intro: At first glance, my diagnosis would be "some kind of water problem." I diagnose this based on the blotchy brown patterns on the leaves that looks worse along the veins, and some of those concentrated black spots look like fungal-opportunists that move into water-stressed plants (*note: water stressed can mean too much or too little, or inconsistent. Skip to point 5 below...). Sun could be burning the leaves due to seasonal exposure (do you have a neighbor's tree that normally casts shade, but dropped its leaves for winter?), but this isn't my first suspicion. What to do though? Sometimes wait-and-see is best. Homeless_Gandhi brought up a good test method: scratch a little of the bark with your finger nail. If you see green underneath, that stem will grow its leaves again! If it's brown & corky, cut away that stem. Cut conservatively, and repeat the scratch test as you go - any sign of green is a good chance it'll come back. Plants are great at re-growing, so you can always wait until new growth comes out, then trim off the dead bits. Because I want to impart knowledge & help you rescue your plant, I outlined my checklist for diagnosing plant problems. If you talk to an Extension Service agent, they'll likely talk through some similar issues. I apologize in advance for the lengthy writing, I'll try to be succinct!! I hope it's helpful! Here we go... * 1. Did you take the plant out of the pot? (sorry if this is too obvious, but it happens sometimes) If not, you must dig up the plant & cut the pot away. If this is your case, pm me & I'll write thorough instructions. If you're not 100% sure, please check. This will absolutely be a life-and-death decision for your little tree. * 2. Did you plant the top of the root ball to the same level as the ground? Consider [this illustration] (http://www.joshclaybourn.com/wp-content/uploads/drawing.gif), then look at your tree - is the root collar above ground level? If yes, you're good. If not, this needs to be remedied: if planted too deep, you need to excavate away the ground to give the root flare some breathing room, like [this] (http://shadetreeexpert.com/2013/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/root-flare-uncovered.jpg). * 3. Do you see any girdling roots around the base of the tree? Girdled roots look like [this] (http://shadetreeexpert.com/2013/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/sg-root1.jpg). Also, a helpful video for your future plantings is [here] (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMFk7KSlPHE). Your tree looks so young that if this is its problem, it should be able to recover. In a month's time, this likely isn't your issue, but as long as we're diagnosing... * 4. Did you mulch your tree? If so, is the mulch banked up against the tree trunk? (Or, do you mulch in the ["volcano style"] (http://mikesbackyardnursery.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Volcano-Mulching2-low.jpg)?) Mulch is fantastic and always recommended, just be sure you leave some breathing room around the root flare, like [this] (http://www.mortonarb.org/files/mulching_MED.jpg). * 5. Let's talk about water! After the above items are checked, this is the biggest reason for horticultural problems, and it's very subjective! "Enough water" means different things to different people (and different plants!!) In general, it is much, much better to water your landscape deeply, but less frequently. How deeply/frequently depends on your soil type. In my area of Texas with clay soils, I water my gardens with a drip line for 60 minutes once a week unless we got an inch of rain. Why don't I run it for 20min three days a week? By watering longer, the water reaches deeper (about a foot down), so there's more moisture reserved in the soil longer, and the plant roots are encouraged to go chasing after it - they're not limited to hanging out at the soil surface waiting for the next time I sprinkle them with the hose. So: "deeply watering" means the soil is saturated *at least* 6" down, deeper is better. How long it takes to do that is an experiment - you'll have to set up some test spots in your yard. Also: allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings is a good thing! Unless you're growing wetland plants, things want to dry out in between. Using a small garden trowel, dig down about 3 inches. Does it feel like cake batter or a wrung-out dish sponge? You're going for dish sponge dryness: not bone dry, but not really wet. One way to eliminate the guesswork is to use a [Tree Gator] (http://treegator.com/images/jrpro_other_images/TgatorJrPro_RGB_1050x1200.jpg) - they're fairly inexpensive, you just fill them up & walk away. Test the soil moisture at 5 days (or 7, or 9...). When it feels like an almost-dry sponge, fill 'er up! :) If you want to talk more about watering, let me know. * 6. Diseases & pests: yes, these are real foes! But, just like people, plants are more susceptible to disease when their systems are stressed. Too much mulch holding moisture around the root flare, never drying out or not getting a deep enough drink of water all would weaken the plant's vitality and make it prone to fungal diseases. As others suggested, there could be a fungal problem happening, but it's secondary to another problem. * 7. Frost protection: I personally wouldn't recommend covering a magnolia. For our zones in Texas (I'm zone 8b), magnolias should be able to handle frosts & freezes down to the high 20s, even when young. Only if it was going to be below 26, 27F would I consider covering it, and then only for a year or two. *Never* cover with plastic - the sun can scorch the leaves, and the plastic acts like a magnifying glass. * 8. Fertilizer & amendments: like mulch, very important & important to do well. Always look at the Guaranteed Analysis on your product: those three numbers at the bottom of the bag that say 12-12-12 or 40-2-6 or something. Sometimes they're called the NPK formula because the numbers represent nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), and Potassium (K) *[fun fact!] (http://www.periodni.com/k.html). The first number is always the % nitrogen (N), which will promote green, leafy growth. For trees and shrubs, 8-12% is plenty, anything over 15% is excessive & not likely used by the plant. The second number is always Phosphorus (P), which will promote flowering & fruiting. Again, 8-12% is plenty for bloomset. Potassium (K) is used for less-visible purposes in plants such as photosynthesis and metabolic processes, as well as drought resistance. A dab'll do ya around 4%. One thing to note: if you start mixing & matching fertilizers, they all add up! So, if you give it a liquid fertilizer of 15-15-15 and then you sprinkle on a granular fertilizer of 10-10-4, the tree actually ends up exposed to a cocktail of something closer to 25-25-19! This subject gets a little nuanced, so I'll just say that a granular fertilizer with a formula of around 10-10-10, 2-3 times a year, would be just fine. Adding other things that don't have much of an analysis like worm castings or liquid seaweed don't factor into this equation. *Whew* Thanks for hanging in there with me! I hope the above points are clear & useful. Please let me know if I can clarify!

    Even working with animals as long as I have and doing nails as long as I have, I've still hit a few quicks in my time. A lot of grooming facilities have switched to using dremel files instead of cutting. For such a small bird I would recommend using a file rather than a trimmer because the risk of nicking the quick is pretty high. A file would get off more than enough nail in just a few swipes to suffice. I do have to trim my Grey every now and then and I even just file his instead of cutting them. I don't like to create a problem where there isn't one. If you aren't experienced with it, just file instead. Also, use corn starch or flour rather than styptic powder. That stuff REALLY stings.

    I did this a few weeks ago to my 2011 WRX. I did the 9011 bulbs in the high beams (replaces the 9005) and the H9 bulb in the low beam (replaces the H11). Sure there is some increased load on the wiring and increased heat, but it seems to be within the tolerances of the housing and wiring. Someone did a full temp test a few years ago. It really makes a world of difference. As soon as I had them in I could tell that my headlights were mis-aimed as I could actually see them under the street lights. And the highbeams are blinding. Seriously, they're weaponized now. I'm scared to flash people. Then again, they just might now be on par with other cars and I was used to the shitty stockers. I went from "I need HID so bad" to "Nah, this is pretty good" Modifying the H9 involves shaving out the ridge in the plug which isn't hard but it is delicate work. Modifying the 9011 involves trimming the tap in the 12-oclock position and is similarly delicate (don't touch the glass!) BUT, one thing I noticed, at least on my bulbs, is that if you looked carefully at that tab on the 9011, you can faintly see an outline for the smaller size tab, giving you a easy trim line. I found that a sturdy nail clipper was perfect for this and I cleaned it up with a set of pin files and an X-acto. I didn't do the fogs because I first needed to replace one of the housings. I'm still thinking about it but the fogs are 1) pretty much aimed at the ground from the factory, so that needs remedied to see any gains 2) tightly sealed so heat build-up MIGHT be more of an issue and COULD scorch/bubble the aluminized reflector, but I don't have any proof that would happen. This just isn't my first rodeo when it comes to lighting mods and I've learned to be cautious.

    Step1: nip piece from runner. Step2: use hobby knife to trim nub fairly close without cutting it flush. Step: 3 use either hobby files or a multi-sided foam nail file to sand down and finish nub removal. I recomend the multi-sided and colored foam nail files you can pickup cheap at wallmart. Usually takes 4-5 for an mg kit to clean up everything.

    I still bite my nails... Why? Because I do surgery, and I can't have long nails, but thanks to a childhood nail biting habit, I never have clippers or files on hand because they're not something that my brain remembers as necessary. So then I need to immediately trim my nails, but I don't have anything to do it with, so... Teeth. And I usually "file" them on jeans or some other coarse fabric. Bad habit, I know, but I'm not constantly chewing on them, or anything like that, and I wash my hands pretty frequently....

  • Ova Anderson

    I came to love nail files. When I got my job, there was a new mini one in cellophane in one of my desk drawers from the previous owner. Noticed one day I had forgotten to trim my pinky nail when I cut them the night before. Remembered the nail file, dug it out and used it. It made is so smooth I kept running my thumb over it. Decided to do the rest of my nails.

  • Yvette Green

    I have a cat and the only thing I can't do is trim her nails. I just don't have the muscle control to hold her on and trim them without being scared I'm going to cut her. I know there are nail files, but they always seem so gimmicky.

    It depends on what you're going to want to do! If you want to do 100% of the grooming yourself then I'm not 100% sure what you'll need. This is my routine with my smol poodle: Daily/Every Other Day: * brush with a slicker brush * Comb face with flea-comb - ESPECIALLY around the eyes. Poodles get really crusty around the eyes sometimes so de-tangling mats around the eyes is very important. Weekly: * trim nails with scissors (you can use a dremel if you prefer) * trim face/feet fur if needed * brush teeth Monthly (or every other week, he gets this treatment if we go hiking): * Bath/Shower * Small trim using clippers (I only take off 1 inch at most, I'm not comfortable shaving him down to the skin) -- this is just once a month if needed. I keep his hair longer in the winter so he doesn't get too chilly Every other month -once per 3 months: * Professional Groom! So the equipment I feel is 100% necessary: * Toothbrush/toothpaste * Slicker Brush * Flea Comb * Small pair of face scissors * Nail Clippers * Andis Clippers with Guard * Dog Shampoo/Conditioner (I use Earth Naturals or whatever with oats) That's kind of the basics. It's really important to brush your dog frequently. As a puppy their fur tends to not be so coily (in general) so it's good to brush as often as possible to get them used to it. As an adult dog, your dogs hair will get matted if you don't brush frequently. Nail care often gets overlooked as well. Keeping your dog's nails short is crucial for joint health. If you get your dog used to it at an early age it'll really help you in the long run! Have fun with your puppy :) Feel free to ask any questions! I do the majority of the grooming for my toy poodle, I'm sure a miniature will have it's own challenges but I've had quite a bit of experience with my little boy!

    You can do it! Need two people. [Large sharp scissor style clippers.](https://www.amazon.com/Safari-Professional-Large-Nail-Trimmer/dp/B0002ARQV4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1484416017&sr=8-3&keywords=large+dog+nail+clippers), [Styptic powder](https://www.amazon.com/Remedy-Recovery-Professional-Groomers-1-5-Ounce/dp/B004PJ55KC/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1484416077&sr=8-1&keywords=styptic+powder) Get her on a bench. Heights keeps them from trying to bolt. Helper get an arm under the chest. Cut a tiny bit at a time. Each nail take at least 5 quick little clips. You start to be able to tell when you get near the quick by how the cut section looks. (Dog will also get more nervous.) Starts to bleed tap some styptic powder on and provide pressure. Clots in 5 seconds. The more ofter you do it the quicker and easier it goes. The bench is key though. Way easier!
