Hey guys, it's about that time, so I need your advice as I personally know fuck all about phones and have no loyalty to brands, so long as it is an android, I don't touch that apple shit.

My only tech preferences are that it has a good combination of high battery life and good camera. Doesn't need to be the best in either category, but well balanced between those two factors.

Also American here, as I understand region effects this choice.

Thanks for your help

Samsung Galaxy S[..] is a series that has both good camera as well as battery. Huawei as well.

As someone who just got a new phone yesterday after holding onto a barely working S5 for 5-6 years, the S10e is a pretty dang good choice.
>>
It really depends on what you want to do with the phone and your budget. In my country, the best phone currently(bang for the buck and not overall) is the Samsung Galaxy A50, which costs around 250 USD with 128 gigs. But if your budget isn't an issue you should get an S10 or Note10.

I would recommend the galaxy a70. Long as fuck battery life and a good screen and camera. Costs less than the s10 at least where I'm from.

What are the jobs someone with social anxiety and depression could do? I wanna find a job perhaps from home, so my parents don't put me into a mental ward and pay for a psychologist instead. I am also visiting a psychiatrist like once a year to get SSRI prescription.

I can’t decide between a classical nylon string and an acoustic steel string guitar.
I think classical looks ugly, old-fashioned and I don’t like how it sounds too “Spanish” sometimes, but I can’t get over how much of a deeper and warmer tone it has, compared to steel which sounds too metallic and twangy.
I already play the piano. The guitar is going to be just a relaxing hobby. Not planing to do anything serious with it and I don’t want to play a specific genre.
Help.

My frien I wanted to start playing electrix guitar but my parents forxed me to buy an classixal go with the instrument u wanr ro play. I just didn't have the motivation to continue plus I didn't saw future playing guitar starting at 15 while knowing who to do a lot of other stuff. I left it as a side hobby but at least I listen now to classixal guitar and play the guitar from time to time. If u want to be a vurtiouso get classical id u want to be campfire chad get acustic steel. Or if u a are a metal head u get electric with a humbacker or just a strat for a start

What country, different countries have different legal standards

Also any hints on the nature of the crime? Some are easier to get away with/harder to prove than others
>>
I dont know about Australia but in many countries you can choose to have a Jury or a judge. In your case you want a Jury. Talk to a lawyer and they'll help you out. As long as theres no physical evidence and the witnesses are proven to have known each other from the beginning you will be fine. They may as well be contaminated witnesses if they know each other and nobody else saw you do anything.
>>
>>21589272
Yes, of course. All they have to prove is that it is far more likely that you're guilty than that you're not. That's what "beyond a reasonable doubt" means
>>
>>21590191
No it isn't. Stop spreading misinformation. Beyond a reasonable doubt means theres not a single chance you didn't do it. As in, not a single reasonable doubt can be raised about the facts in issue. In civic court it's about being more likely than not, but not criminal.

My ear felt a bit sticky when I put my finger in there so I grabbed a q-tip and gently put it in there and gave it a spin. It didn't hurt nor did I force it at all. 2 hrs later and the hearing in my right ear is fucked. What the fuck did I do to myself?

I've had horrible ear issues my whole life, probably related to genetics, large amounts of wax, tinnitus, noisy jobs. Very experienced in this area.

The ear is extremely fragile to damage but very resilient in healing especially while young. From what you've said you probably just forced a bunch of earwax together and now it's all clumped and blocking your ear canal and thus your hearing. If you have insurance I recommend you just go to your doctor and they will take care of it. If not, I recommend you elevate your body temp at night with a heating pad or excessive blankets, whatever is available. This will soften the wax, then mess with it with just your finger in the morning and it will probably open up.
>>
>>21589418
You probably pushed a big ear wax ball deeper into your ear. I’ve had ear wax problems my whole life. Go to the doctor and they will clean it out. I have to do this sometimes
>>
>>21589418
You can clean it with hydrogen peroxide. Fill a large syringe with hydrogen peroxide, hold it in your hand for 5 mins so that it may warm up, put in ear.

Let it stay for 5 minutes inside, lie on your side, then once 5 minutes pass, put a towel and turn around on your other side, so that the liquid may drain.

It's cheap and harmless.

I just went through the same thing minus the qtip. They sell kits to remove ear wax at Walmart as well.

What's your guys ways of starting convos with attractive random people u see in public?
>>
>>21589782
"Hi, my name is [name]. I think you're beautiful and wanted to get your number so we can go out on a date later. What's your name?"
>>
I think the focus shouldn't be getting the number, but just practicing conversations in general. If you see an attractive person, introduce yourself and mention something you find interesting about them. For example, "Hi my name is *insert name*. You have such good fashion sense that I just had to talk to you. What's your name?" If you guys hit it off, then you can ask if they'd like to hangout again in the future. If the conversation kind of drifts away, it's ok to move on. A good conversation with a stranger can lift your spirits for the rest of the day, and give you a lingering sense of accomplishment.
>>
>>21589782
There's no one way, there are many factors which would affect the approach

>where are you
>what are they doing
>who are they with
>are they engaged in something or do they look bored
>does it look like they had a bad day or a great one
>how's the weather

these are just the big ones
>>
Assuming you're both just at a coffee place or something, go up with a smile on your face and say "hi, I'm *name*. " if they seem nice just tell them openly "I'd like to take you out, give me your number"

Most of the time these approaches dont work. But if you seem legitimately confident it will work. When you tell them you want to go out with them, use an actually personal compliment, like mentioning their eye lashes or their smile, w/e it is you genuinely like about them.

The key is confidence. If they tell you to fuck off just say "sorry to bother you, have a good day" and they'll probably feel guilty for being so rude.

What can I do to make myself stop smoking?
>>
>>21589892
Depends on what kind of person you are.
I got myself an e-cigarette, reduced the amount of nicotine over time and finally also quitted it. Worked great for me.
>>
>>21589892
Why do you want to quit? Focus on that and decide if you really want to then pick a method ie. Cold turkey, vape, patches, gum etc.
>>
>>21589892
I went from vaping to nicotine gum to the occasional cigar. The urge never really goes away though, at least not for me
>>
As someone who has been nicotine free for seven years and literally tried to quit and failed dozens of times, the best two ways to quit are cold turkey or the nicotine patch followed directions exactly.
