2022.01.17 16:36 fatjewballs69 Question on popping the grain on a cutting board.
So I sanded my board all the way to 320, got it wet, let it dry, then sanded to 320 again. I repeated this two more times. I sealed with mineral oil first then a oil/wax combo over the course of two days. I washed the board again and it doesn’t feel perfectly smooth anymore. Is this normal or did I mess something up?

2022.01.17 16:36 qdogg88 1 minute film / my first film ever
So this is my first film I ever put effort into. I been learning some techniques from a guy from udemy and I just wanted to try stuff out immediately.
I'm looking for some criticism but in my opinion, I think it's good because in almost every jump cut it's aligned with the music which makes it a little more entertaining & enjoyable.
I think the ending could've hit a little better though.
The whole premise is I was watching video games streams on the TV, then it goes into rest mode so I change the channel and something scary pops on and makes me drop the camera.
But let me know what yall think please

2022.01.17 16:36 SimplesmenteIsso Eu tô louco?
Quando criança, eu acreditava que o universo equilibrava as coisas, então se algo muito bom acontecesse, era porque algo muito ruim viria.
No sentido emocional, parece que quanto mais emoções boas você sente, mais sensível às ruins e menos às boas você fica. Não tenho certeza se o inverso acontece, mas já vi sadpessoas se iludindo muito com pequenas coisas aparentemente boas.
Nosso cérebro traz esse equilíbrio, então acho que podem acontecer só coisas boas na sua vida, mas você ainda terá a sensação de altos e baixos, até porquê é quando você está no topo que percebe que não vale tudo o que dizem, e é quando você está no fundo que percebe que é melhor estar no topo(ou simplesmente tudo perde o sentido)...
Além disso, quando uma pessoa está feliz, o rendimento dela aumenta, é natural que os sentimentos ruins atrapalhem em contrapartida. Mas somos impedidos de estar sempre em bom rendimento pelo equilíbrio.
Mas por que equilíbrio?
Nosso cérebro está tentando impedir que percebamos algo?

2022.01.17 16:36 Dr_FAM Took Step1 AMA! Also, here are some general Step1 tips
I took the exam yesterday. So I had intended to do a write-up after my exam because I think they have been helpful to me. At this stage though, with the exam switching to P/F in like a week, I don’t think it would be helpful to people who are in their last few days of studying for me to list a whole year long write-up; there wouldn’t be time for you guys to make any major changes in resources or anything. Besides, I didn’t do anything special, just the regular stuff that everyone knows.
So I think it would be better for me to go through some general words of advice, tips, and strategies that I think helped me. Some of these things I haven’t seen people mention, so I hope it’s helpful to you.
Just as a reference:
NBMEs - took most of the new ones, and they were all in the mid 240s range
Uworld SA 1- 262
UWorld SA 2 - 250
Free 120 - 88%
Predictmyscore has me at 250
So this is the advice I have for you guys. Some of this applies more to the final people who are still going for the 3-digit score, but I think people who take it after P/F can benefit as well
Anki is a great resource, no doubt. But I think it’s reasonable to point out that the app really wasn’t designed for such a voluminous courseload. I used the Anking deck, and I have the utmost respect for those guys. But the deck is huge. It can definitely get overwhelming and sometimes kind of hurt your studying by demotivating you. There were definitely days that I would just not feel like studying at all because I had hundreds of reviews staring me in the face. Some days it would cause me to only do my Anki cards and nothing else because I was so tired afterwards. Other times, I wouldn’t study at all because I didn’t want to deal with it. So my advice to you are ways to deal with this “Anki fatigue”. I don’t buy into the sometimes cult-like mantra of Anki that you can never miss a day. I think there really should be a pause option. I know there are some ways to spread your reviews over the next few days to make it essentially like you skipped a day, but it’s not super easy to do, and definitely not something I wanted to deal with when I’m trying to focus solely on material. So, my advice to you is that if there is a day that you feel your reviews are weighing you down and hurting your productivity, go ahead and close your eyes and smash the space bar. I know that sounds blasphemous, but trust me. You aren’t going to be missing as much as you think. Either your cards are matured enough that it’s in your brain pretty solid, or it’s a card you’re learning that will show up in a couple days anyway. I should add that when I did this, I would press “2” or “hard” for every card so I would see the card in, for example, 2 days instead of 5. I’m not saying to do this 5x a week, but every now and again I think is perfectly okay. Look, Anki is supposed to help you, not hurt you. If you can use that time and energy more efficiently, I think that’s better.
Another thing I did is changed my “next day start” time to 9 pm. The default is like 4 or 5 am I think. Changing it to 9 pm allowed me to do some reviews at the end of my study day. I would try to do a couple hundred cards before bed. Then the next day I had a much more manageable number to do. Another strategy I used was to just kinda "read" the card instead of "doing/answering" it. Like I would just show the answer as soon as the card showed up, without really trying to recall the answer. This allowed me to at least see the material while limiting my brain fatigue. Finally, some days I would do two or three hundred cards then close my eyes and “Space bar + 2, space bar 2” the rest. That way I still got some Anki review in before I got fatigued. So I think you should mix it up a bit like I did if Anki is getting overwhelming. I actually stopped doing it completely like 3 or 4 days before my exam and I think it was the right decision.
REVIEWING UWORLD -
So this is more for the people taking it for a score: It’s the end game guys. Try to be more efficient reviewing your blocks if you’re still doing qbanks. Skip some reviews. You already know primary hyperparathyroidism cold; you can skip the explanation of the 80% correct first-order PTH question.
I think taking the new NBMEs was super useful for me. There were a lot of repeat pictures and even some repeat questions, or at least the concept behind the question. If you can, I would recommend doing them all. Make sure to review the high-yield NBME images doc, and commit the pictures to memory.
STUDY BREAKS -
I know study breaks are important but a problem I kept having is my study breaks would run too long and I would return feeling more tired than rested. What I started doing when taking a break was lying down on my sofa and watching step1 youtube videos on my phone. In particular I watched a lot of Dirty Medicine and sometimes Randy Niel. This honestly helped a lot because it kept my mind running on idle instead of completely turning off the engine and hoping to push-start it again after my break. Dirty Medicine makes pretty engaging videos and repeats himself to reiterate his point, so it’s not like watching a Boards and Beyond video where you have to be on high alert every second while watching or you'll miss something. I returned from breaks feeling physically rested from lying down, but my mind was still relatively alert and still in study mode. It also allowed me to take longer breaks with no guilt.
Yes, this was indeed a pretty big component of the exam. Probably had 2 to 3 questions every block. It is worth your time to study this topic. The way I did it is by watching all of Dirty Medicine’s ethics videos. Just open his playlist and play them all. The reason is that while you technically don’t need to know all the ethics stuff to answer communications questions, it definitely helps. If nothing else, it gets you in the right mindset of how to approach the question. Just repeating “Patient-centric, patient-valued blah blah” didn’t do shit for me. I needed to learn the actual material from the videos for things to start clicking for me. It’s literally like an hour and fifteen minutes for all the videos combined, so it’s not a big time investment and is totally worth it. One caveat, I didn’t do the healthcare video as that one was pretty long, and I didn’t need it at all. One thing that helped me during a communication question was to see which answer choices could be answered by simply saying “yes” or “no”, in which case that choice is probably not the right answer. The correct answer is usually an open-ended question or statement.
GENERAL ADVICE ON DOING A QUESTION -
Pay attention to the age/demographic in the vignette. For example, taking age into account is helpful for ovarian tumor questions. If they mention the patient is homeless, they usually are pointing towards some sort of TB or IV drug abuse. Immigrant patients usually point towards some vaccination thing. If you’re stuck on a question, see if the demographic is something that can point you somewhere.
Another thing I think is helpful when stuck on a question is to look at each answer choice and assign a disease to each one based on its description. Like if it’s a complicated blood question, look at the answer choices and if one of them says something like “consumption of factors and platelets, etc.”, that’s probably DIC. If one says an adverse drug reaction, think about blood-related drug rxns like heparin-induced thrombocytopenia or some cancer drug that causes myelosuppression, etc. If it says something along the lines of problems in globin synthesis, inappropriate shape due to dehydration, etc. you can probably assign the proper diseases to those too. Then, finally, go back to the question stem and see if the presentation matches with any of the diseases you’ve written down for the answer choices. Sometimes reading a convoluted question stem followed by convoluted answer choices worded in a weird way can cause your brain to panic. Simplifying the answer choices to individual diseases can sometimes “reset” your brain into thinking more simply and can help answer the question.
Finally, I think it’s a really good idea to read the last line or two of the question and and skim the answer choices before reading the whole question. Even if it doesn’t save you time, it definitely can save your brain power. For example, let’s say the answer choices are all or mostly blood-related diagnoses. Then you read the question and it says something like “a patient comes in with confusion and motor loss of her right leg her deep tendon reflexes are blah blah”. If you were to read the question without looking at the answer choices first, as you start to read your mind may start racing, thinking about the different strokes and cerebral arteries and different focal deficits, etc. And by the time you’re looking at the answer choices, you may be biased towards a neuro disorder, plus your mind has subconsciously put in the energy to remember the different strokes and stuff. But if I were to ask any of you right now “brain problems plus blood problems = what disease”, most of you would be able to think of TTP. With the background knowledge that you’re looking for a blood-related answer choice, the question stem becomes a lot easier to decipher and leads to less brain fatigue as you read through the clinical scenario.
TAKING THE ACTUAL EXAM -
Remember that you’re probably going to be taking the exam with a mask on. So make sure you have a mask ready that you are comfortable with, like your go-to mask during this pandemic. I don’t think it’s a good idea to get a brand new special mask for your exam. This isn’t the time to experiment; go with your “ol’ reliable” mask. And, remember to WASH IT a night or two before the exam. You don’t want to deal with smelly-mask syndrome for 8 hours. I haven’t heard this advice on here, so I hope it’s something new for you to consider.
The adrenaline when starting your exam gives you a big boost of energy for the first 2 or 3 blocks. You’ll feel like you don’t need to take a break. But in my humble opinion, you’re not doing yourself any favors by powering through 80 straight questions. Take a break after each block. It may seem like you don’t need it, but what if you get fatigued or have to pee 25 questions into the next block? It’s not worth taking that risk. Take a break, even if you just sit at your desk for two minutes. Ideally, go to the bathroom, sip water, take a couple bites out of a protein bar or whatever lunch you packed, then get back to it.
Finally, I want to address the question of whether or not to look up answers on your phone in between blocks. To be honest, I think it’s a good idea with some caveats. You need to know the type of person you are. If you’re prone to panicking and looking up answers will give you more anxiety, then okay, dont look stuff up. But let me give some potential benefits of looking stuff up: first of all, sometimes concepts repeat on subsequent blocks. If you forgot if methyl malonic acid is normal in b12 or folate deficiency, it’s worth looking it up real quick. Or any other simple thing like that. If you forget the FLAT CHAMP CHuGG second messengers, or which bacteria are gram-negative coccobacilli, just look it up. Yeah, it’s not the best time to review advanced conceptual topics, but little factoids like those, I think it’s worth it because they can come up again on the other blocks. Looking stuff up can also help your mindset. For example, I had a question where I knew 4 out of the 5 answers choices, but the 5th one was something I had never heard of before. The question was asking me about phagocytosis or something. I knew the 4 choices I knew didn’t have anything to do with phagocytosis (or at least I never came across that in my studying), but I didn’t pick the 5th answer choice because I hadn’t heard of it. So when I looked it up in between the blocks and saw that I had gotten it wrong because I didn’t trust myself, it helped my mindset. I realized that if I know (or at least am quite sure) the other 4 answers choices are wrong, I should pick the other choice even if I haven’t heard of it before.
Let me finish by saying the exam was easier than any of the NBMEs, free 120, and uworld self assessments. It was a lot less tricky. Another thing I noticed is that as you take the exam, your brain gets lighter. Let me explain. When you are taking a self-assessment or doing blocks, and they ask you about a harder topic like post-translational modification, it messes with you because even if you get the question right, your brain starts thinking/panicking about all the info associated with that relatively lower yield topic. You subconsciously think “Okay, I knew that was Exon splicing, but what if they had asked me about the poly-A tail or 7’capping?? I don’t know if I would have gotten it right, maybe I should review, aaahhggg!!” You have to constantly be thinking about different associations and different ways they could have asked the question, etc. However, when you’re taking the actual exam, if they ask you about exon splicing, you’re now done with that topic! You won’t be needing to know that bullshit anymore. Your brain gets lighter as the exam goes on, as you shed the worry of all the lower yield BS topics.
SHOULD I TAKE P/F OR GO FOR A SCORE?
This is the million-dollar question that everyone’s wondering. The general consensus is that if you score above the average, so like a 232+, then it was worth it. But the thing is, you don’t necessarily know what you’re going to score. If your predicted score is like 234, but you get a 227 or something, I’m not sure if that’s better than P/F. Or, worst case scenario, you drop like 15 points from your predicted and get a 215 or something, then that’s a tough situation to be in. I think you should only take it for a score if you are definitively above the national average on all of your assessments. That means you are consistently scoring 235+, with a lot of scores in the 240+ range. If most of your scores are in the 220s, and you have a couple high scores of 234, I don’t know if it’s worth it to take it. Don’t get me wrong, you definitely have the potential to score very well with those practice scores, and I know firsthand how hard it is to get to that point in your scores. But I think it may not be worth the risk of getting a lower score. I think for the current Step1 landscape, it hurts more to get a lower score than it helps to get a higher one. If you are getting 220s in your practice exams that means your knowledge base is great! Take step1 P/F and go and kill step 2. Don’t take the risk of getting in the 220s or god forbid, lower, on step 1. I know the P/F change is a crazy curveball but it is what it is. I know you have been working really hard for a long time for a score, but 220s on practice exams is just too much of a risk at this point in my humble opinion. It sucks, but it’s the situation we’re dealing with right now. I know your goal for a long time has been to get a step1 score. Taking it P/F does NOT mean that you have fallen short of that goal. It means external factors have changed and you have adjusted course accordingly. It shows wisdom and forethought. Take what I’m saying with a grain of salt, everyone is different and what’s best for everyone is different. But at the very least, try to let go of the tunnel vision to take step1 for a score and earnestly, with an open mind, consider the risks/benefits given your individual situation.
Okay so this ran way longer than I expected. I truly hope it was of benefit to someone.
Any questions about my exam or studying in general, ask away!

I love Beamng drive. Its physics are great! But by every other game I played taught me that every car grips like a suction cup and handles perfectly, which is, of course, not true. I've been playing for a while now, learning how car handle and what damadges them, but even after such a long time, I can't break. I simply can't find the breaking zone and timing. What should I do?
