It's not unheard of. Pretty much coughing enough to the point where you wake yourself up. I've had patients wake up with a lot of congestion due to bad pneumonia, etc because they have something called nocturnal paroxysmal dyspnea (pretty much being unable to breathe). But that's something far different.

I've definitely seen the congestion/can't breathe crowd before and that makes sense to me.

 

Just never had a terrible cough I guess.

yesterday I couldn't fall asleep until about 4:00 am when I found out covering my head suppresses my cough

 

the night before I'd wake up when my coughing got bad enough

 

when I was younger I lived in a house where I was allergic to something in it (mold or something), and frequently would be unable to sleep because of coughing.

 

Coughing like that is terrible and terrifying.

As someone that's had pneumonia 7 times in their life I can say with full certainty that coughing can and will keep you from sleeping. It blows.

 

 

...today...

I played dnd with the boys using my level 11 Elf Rogue cause I'm a pansy but today was special. We were awarded "[bleep] yeah / [bleep] no" d20s in addition to our normal die if we were feeling frisky. So basically we can roll the special d20 anytime we would normally roll but the 20 is especially good, with the risk of the 1 being especially bad.

 

Cut to a white dragon ambushing us in the tundra where I have advantage in stealth due to my wolf pelt clothing and I get first round attack.

 

I miss.

 

So no assassinate bonus, but it's ok because I basically disappear in the snow afterward.

 

Next round, I feel it. I roll the special d20. [bleep] YEAH. So now my bow is doing 3d8 piercing + sneak attack 6d6 bonus BUT it's also a crit, so it's 12d6. I only own 5d6 so I roll the first 5. All 6s. All [bleep]ing 6s. My sixth was a 5. Nearly perfect damage. 6 6s would have been a 1/7776 chance but damn was I close. The next set was less impressive but I still ended up doing something like 84 damage on a basic attack roll.

 

Hell yeah

I uninstalled iTunes several years back as it became a crappier piece of software, and now I want to buy some music which appears to only be on the iTunes store, it looks like I'm going to have to reinstall it. And in my desperate attempt to find some way to avoid that fate, all the articles I'm reading talking about how the service is getting crappier just reaffirms by suspicion that it's a terrible piece of software, and I'm glad to have gotten out years ago.

I haven't purchased music ever, but somehow ended up with 90 some GB of songs...

 

But for real, I don't think anything exclusively exists on iTunes. There's got to be a physical copy or a YouTube mirror you could get instead. Anything is better than that dreadful Apple BS

I mean, yeah, I can import a CD from Japan. The base price, pre-shipping, is $25.

 

Or I could pirate it, but I don't feel as okay about that these days, tbh.

 

The problem is the artist doesn't have a western distribution channel, so it's not that surprising that it's exclusively available on iTunes.

Ok to be fair, I pay for Spotify but only because it's bundled with Hulu and commercials are for poor people

I am so stoked that Tulsi Gabbard is officially running in 2020. November 10th 2016 I picked her as my favorite potential DNC candidate.

 

IT'S HAPPENING

I went to a restaurant that was on Diners drive ins and dives (I think before the episode aired?) and it was just super depressing inside. We were the only ones there

Same thing here. Some burger joint near where i live. We were the only ones there, but the food was amazing at least.

I was under the impression that civilian contracts wouldn't be paid, but I guess that's only if the contract didn't receive prior funding

I don't know if anyone remembers, but one of the companies I applied for was so slow they were asking if I was interested after I already got another one and moved here.

 

Now when I'm on StackOverflow (at work) looking at questions/answers, half the time I see the very same company with three ads on the page soliciting applications. That can't be cheap - I guess inefficiency bites, doesn't it!

I added the Cthulhuian parasite miniboss. It has two mechanics: a chant that activates the Soul Siphon, causing 50% damage; and they can resurrect their fallen comrades. It's easy enough if you know the mechanics.

The parasites are kinda cute:

I applied to a bunch of state jobs before I got the one I have. I applied to job A and by the time they wanted to get me in for an interview, I'd been working at job B for 6 months. And job B took 8 months between me applying and me starting. Shit is sloooow

So caltech employees are treated as first class citizens of nasa, like civil servents with some additional benefits of not being one. They would probably get back paid.

 

Outside contractors at jpl who are employed by companies like Raytheon probably wont

Thats the worst.

 

I've been checking numpy syntax a lot lately and have been flooded with data scientist ads.

 

It's okay though, I think my current location more than theirs anyway.

 

Also keep smelling cigarette smoke in here, in our WOOD building. It feels like it should be illegal but I guess I'll send a written complaint, since talking to the management person on duty was kind of useless.
