    RorzNZ reacted to dalekphalm in COVID-19 - READ THE RULES BEFORE REPLYING   
    According to research, asymptomatic accounts for approximately 30-40% of cases, so screening would still filter out the majority of potential infected people.
     
    There's not much you can do about asymptomatic people anyway aside from social distancing and mask wearing.
    How long were you in the intake room for?
    Same with what I see here - some people wear them but most have cloth masks and many are starting to double up.
    N95 is still hard to come by here. You can find them in some places, but the prices are quite high too.
    Just my opinion, but this is an incredibly bad decision, unless midterms are literally the next day or something.
     
    Most people only have side effects for a day or two after, if any at all.
     
    Get a vaccine as soon as you can.
     
    Granted, if we're talking about just a few days different, sure. But even waiting a week can make a big difference.

    Totally agree. Underrated. Make sure to have eye drops as well if you have long computer sessions!
     
    Must have:
    - Keyboard and Mouse
    - Monitor
    - Lamp
    - Phone charger
    - Tissues

    yes, video games die a lot sooner than conventional sports do. A long career in esports would be pretty hard. Its like when some yters dont go to college, if yt fails for them, it will be hard for them to get a good job. Its a good thing hes pursing the piano, that seems like a better career in the long run. But then again, hes a fuckin 8 yr old. He legit gets $33k playing FN we all gotta sweat our asses off in our 9-5 jobs, just to get anywhere near that much. Damn. Life sure is fucked lmao.

     8 is too young to be playing video games (or really have any full-time career) professionally, whether streaming or not. It's certainly healthy to play video games, but long-term effects, such as missing out on curricular activities, or other social activities, may be detrimental. That said, $33k is an astounding figure to make at such a young age. Hopefully his parents do not take advantage - i strongly detest such pageantry. Properly managed, this is a great opportunity for this young individual. All the best and congratulations - but be careful and don't rely on this for a career. 
     
    [EDIT]
    This also sets himself up for University if he wishes too - good amount for an education, where cost is a large barrier. Certainly more than i've ever made from a video game ($20 - used it for printing money haha)

    MagSafe is so much better than USB-C though. That said, it has no place on iPhones, would rather have it on the laptop. Charging through USB-C is bad.

    The “vinegar” has powdered citric acid in it.  If that is an issue, and it is for some people, they’ll taste terrible.  There’s a bunch of other stuff with powdered citric acid in it.  There’s a candy called “atomic warheads” that is actually coated in it.  They would be awful too.

    RorzNZ got a reaction from JLO64 in 8-year Old Becomes Professional FortNite Player   
    What people say is one thing, actions are another - especially with these situations. Will have to wait and see. My comments were really for in general - remember that statistic that only two of the top FortNite players are over 18. I definitely agree that is a great thing to achieve for Joseph, and he seems to be cared for quite well. 2-3 hours a night is probably a little too much however, maybe i'm old and don't have that much time anymore, but it seems excessive (in my opinion). I think 2-3 hours, if he wishes to keep this up, will be harder in the future, when he goes to high school, and certainly unattainable in University. The main impact I worry about with such a low-aged individual is his future prospects - video gaming as a career is very volatile.

    what this kid needs to do is put the money hes earning toward colege and look at this as a fun way to earn lots of money. he wont be able to do this when he grows up, he'll have to have a normal job. he probably wont even be able to do this in highschool, since school is more important than some gaming career

    It's the flour. Less than one second on Google gives you the Wikipedia page as the first result:

     
    Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tsampa

    Relevant quote: "It is glutinous meal made from roasted flour, usually barley flour and sometimes also wheat flour. It is usually mixed with the salty Tibetan butter tea. It is also eaten in Turkestan and Mongolia, where it is known as zamba."
     
    Aaaand checking back in uh the article you linked flat out says it too: "The word tsampa in Tibetan usually refers to ground-up, roasted barley flour, although occasionally the flour comes from wheat or another grain."
