Default Recommend ANYTHING

Yes, anyyyyyythiiiiiiiiing.

I did start to write a list of the sorts of things you might recommend but I got bored quite quickly (so I wouldn't recommend it).

But it's fairly self-explanatory - if there's something you like that you think others might like, share it!

Here's one from me:

- Tesco's Salt and Pepper Baguette - It's like tiger bread, but approximately 17x nicer. I'd eat it for every meal if I could.

Turmeric as an anti-inflammatory. Seems to work just as well as ibuprofen and doesn't destroy your kidneys.

It's cracking in homemade facial masks too. Tho it can burn some skins (it burns my problem areas, tho I still use it as the results the next morning are grt for me).
It also stains skin orange if you use to much . It helps taking any redness out my facial skin. I'm told it's good for acne to (tho I don't know for sure)

I use this one:

http://www.itv.com/thismorning/style...ning-face-mask

It does leave me with blotchy red soreish patches afterwards (i'm told only some ppl get this reaction from turmeric,) so i do it at night and smother on moisturiser afterwards. It was very alarming the 1st time I used it! But the next morning the redness had gone both any natural redness and the turmeric reaction and my face was bright and glowing. It is messy tho. :/

I do not recommend the mint drink thing Costa are currently doing that someone told me I'd like because love mint ice cream. All it tastes of is half frozen watered-down milk.

See you in another 6 or 7 years, Costa.

Scientology. I know that it has a bad reputation, and people tend to think of it as a cult based on the batshit ****ing insane teachings of an insane and paranoid ****wit. It's so much more than that. It's all about spreading love and peace and harassing anyone who won't accept that Commander Zemu (or whatever the **** he was called, as if it's at all important that I get my facts right when talking about such obviously ******** bullshit) dumped people in a volcano millions of years ago, which is why Tom Cruise.

Short courses on Coursera.

I've almost worked my way through the lectures from 'Buddhism and Modern Psychology' and have about a third left of a course on statistical inference for psychology that's proven to be much more informative than the basic statistics course you do as part of an undergraduate psychology degree (in fairness, it is aimed at postgrad level). Thinking of picking a few courses from the data science specialisation next.

^ Those sound like pretty important subjects to me.

I've been signed up with them for ages but had completely forgotten all about it. I'm really impressed with the quality of the two I'm doing at the moment. It's quite a brill resource really.

^They sound good!

------------------------

If you're full of cold then I'd recommend buying some fresh ginger, lemon and honey and pouring hot water over them. (Chop them up and put them in a mug first!)

It's clearing up my awful sinus cold like a treat. Really impressed!

This is not vegetarian propaganda. These taste better than actual chicken nuggets!




I was probably about 10 the last time I had a chicken nugget.

Please can one person who eats meat buy some and confirm?
