If they really did replace the DS, they would stop making games for it, but they still keep making them. That's literally exactly what Nintendo is doing, they are removing features and making a cheaper console. If you don't like the TV mode on your current switch, then don't use it.

That's typically a concern Sort of. The short answer is that antibiotics don't cause resistances to occur, but they create artificial selection towards resistance. As an example- Penicillin only works on gram+ bacteria as opposed to gram-. The difference between the two is that penicillin targets all bacterial cell walls, which are durable repeating sequences of peptides, but gram+ has their wall exposed, and gram- has a cell membrane covering theirs, so they're safe from penicillin. So, here's a common gram+ bacteria, staphylococcus aureus: Penicillin used to work great on it, until there was one that had a natural resistance to it. Every staph around it died, so it survived to thrive and reproduce, making that particular resistance more common. generally this isn't a huge deal, but penicillin became so commonly used that soon pretty much every strain resisted it. And because it was isolated populations individually achieving resistance, there were a lot of different approaches to resist this particular antibiotic. So to recap, this bacteria had independently developed a bunch of ways to become resistant, but not completely immune to this particular antibiotic. Obviously a problem, but it gets worse once you take plasmids into account. See, everyone knows bacteria reproduce by division, but a lot of people aren't aware that they can also share DNA with their neighbors. So a whole bunch of bacteria are all independently resistant and are suddenly playing mix and match with resistances, to the point where it's a full immunity. And another terrible fact about plasmids- they can actually hold a lot of info on how to resist a bunch of antibiotics, AND they're not picky about who they share with. So staph can swap resistances with e coli, who swap it with tuberculosis, who swap it with tetanus... and you get the idea. Resistances build and migrate fast, which is why doctors are super careful about prescribing novel antibiotics. They don't even use penicillin anymore because everything is immune at this point. Pretty much the only time it gets used is when a patient demands antibiotics but doesn't really need them, so they'll give them to the patient to shut them up. Anyway this was way longer than I expected and thanks for coming to my TED talk.

I had to take them when I had my wisdom teeth removed, and I am here, one year later, trolling the daylights out of the boards. Sort of. The mechanics get pretty complicated, but generally antibiotics are poison to bacteria but not to us. They generally destroy/deactivate structures that we don't have, like punch holes in cell walls (humans only have membranes), or attack enzyme pathways that we don't have. You can't generally OD on antibiotics because they don't do anything to us, as long as you're not allergic at least. There are some top tier stuff that can hurt you though, IIRC. Usually used for treating stuff that is damn hard to get rid of, like tuberculosis. We limit antibiotic exposure to reduce the chances of spawning a super bug, and to avoid totally wiping out the helpful bacteria in/on you. You're on track for why it doesn't do dick to a virus- can't kill what isn't alive. A virus is generally a capsule, DNA or RNA, and a delivery mechanism. They're way less complicated and therefore have far less weaknesses to exploit.

They're lying. You don't seem to realize that they're quoting a press release, not a memo. The reason they're not linking to the press release is because it was probably announced to the local news, and in order to use it as a source they'd have to pay royalties. They're not going to bother because the audience for this story is really damn small. It's not worth it. You can go do your digging for yourself, but you'll probably be watching news clips from local newscasters for a while trying to find it.

That's my guess too. As far as I know most or all of the founders of Riot are men, so they'd likely be the highest paid. Generally the stats I'd be interested in are average time between advancement and retention. That's usually a good clue for actual discrimination.

Generally RPGs are famous for their ability to be a massive time sink. One of the newer and more popular ones is Persona 5, if you've got a PS4 you might find a copy fairly cheap. There are also the Bethesda games if you've never tried them. Think I've got 500+ hours on skyrim. Definitely look into modding, it makes it better. Even if it's QoL unofficial patches and such.

One time I called in late to work because I couldn't find my glasses. I'm extremely nearsighted so I ended up finding them by turning my phone's camera on and looking through it to see around my room.
: Dude your username is awesome.

Gracias. I like yours too. For some reason I see it and think of that horrible screeching banshee wail for dialup internet. But in a nostalgic way.

Pretty sure you just type "Do the thing" in microsoft word and you get whatever game you want.

If you like overpowered characters mixed with comedy, one punch man and mob psycho are both pretty good. Only anime I watched last season was reincarnated slime and it wasn't great, but it was worth a watch. Overlord is a better "Suddenly I'm a monster trapped in a MMO world" anime though. Pretty dark though.

I'm Amarillo. Just outside the red zone, we've had rain and hail off and on but nothing extreme.

: Bring back the ability to Honor the opposite team?
Back when it was a thing players would honor feeders because they helped them win.
: Would you, as a new player, have continued playing this game if...
Honestly, no. The client is terrible, but everything about this game is very unfriendly to newbies. Back when I started the game was new so smurfing wasn't really a thing, everyone was trying to figure out this new and interesting game so there was no such thing as meta and standard builds. Hell, one game I went AP Ashe mid because she only had AP scaling and it actually worked pretty well. No one raged, my ult was a flying guillotine and we all had fun. These days I'd have been raged at and reported. Honestly probably wouldn't have finished the game.

Title plus the stuff I've read this far. > A few hours ago at around 6:00 EST. I ran away from moms and ran to my dads. Now I know all of you reading will never meet me and will never actually be told in real life. I just wanted to get my story out of the way or at least say something to someone so this being out there is just for me really. So I'll start from the top, I am a 15-year-old white male from Minnesota. When I was around 7 my Mom married my stepdad, who I will refer to as bitch in this article because it's the truth. So my mom marries bitch in Mexico and woohoo. We get back home and they're married. Bitch and I lived in the same house but its sort of that cliche where the kid doesn't get along with the stepdad. And for me, it's true so we've never really gotten along even when I was 8 and we still don't.
