2021.10.15 22:57 dennis_davies Adult Non-fiction: Self-help; probably about the importance of investing in books
Got the excerpt of the book this year 2021 which is as follows:-
"Think of what $25 can get you these days. You might get coffees for a week, a few pints at the pub, an Uber trip to a mate's party, or a movie ticket. These purchases will put a smile on your face and can brighten up a dull week. But the benefit or value of these purchases are of a short-term nature you drink the coffee, get perked up for a few hours, then it's gone.
Contrast that to something else you could invest your cash in: books. In return for handing over some of your hard-earned, you get to tap into the greatest brains that have ever roamed the planet. Authors devote their entire lives to studying and researching a single topic, then they bundle up the most important information into a neat little package to share with the world. What bloody legends! Books are the most undervalued commodity on the planet.
But you probably already know this. Telling someone to read more books is like telling someone to make money or lose weight. Wanting to do something and actually doing it are two totally different ball games. We're all busy with our jobs, our friends, our kids, plus we have to get some sleep, clean the dishes, go for a jog, and of course we have to find the time for some Netflix and chill. All of the book recommendations you're getting keep piling up on the nightstand, but when you hit the hay after a long day of dealing with life's obligations, you can't seem to find a good book that will tell you what you need to know to improve your life."

2021.10.15 22:57 cxmicsams Dealing with moving
Does anyone have any suggestions for making moving house for the first time in my life easier? The new house isn’t very far away, but I’m already going through autistic burnout, and my sensory sensitivities mean that I can’t drive over there to get used to being in the new house and where everything is before I actually move in.
It’s not quite ready for me to move in yet, but probably will be in the next month or so and I’m really hoping that someone will have ideas for making the transition easier. I don’t like dealing with change even when I’m not already burnt out.

2021.10.15 22:57 alwaysbloom1 Old heating system question
Hello I hope this is the right place to post! Basically I viewed a house to buy today and the heating system looked really old. The boiler was a brand new 'glow worm' but the radiators looked old and the pipes were visible on the outside wall. Recently one of the pipes burst and has since been fixed. Are these pipes a cause for concern? Can they be easily replaced if they go wrong?

2021.10.15 22:57 ifeel_likeapepper Advice for setting up my first planted tank!
Hi all! I purchased a male plakat koi betta a few months ago along with a 5 gal tank kit. I've been on this sub since then and I've finally worked up the courage to upgrade him to a glass, planted, 6 gal tank (largest I can go in my current space) during Petco's tank sale. I'm in need of any advice/assistance with getting the ball rolling.
I live on one of the outer islands of Hawaii so I'm limited to what I can source from local ponds and the only pet shop nearby (Petco). I think that things like CO2 injection will also be difficult because of my location, but please correct me if I'm wrong!! Shipping in plants is probably going to be difficult with agriculture laws and permitting so any assistance with that process, should I need it, would be helpful too!
I know that I will need to cycle the tank but due to my small space, I can't keep both tanks going for long, so tips for expediting the process or ways to safely keep plants happy & my little guy in the new space asap is greatly appreciated!
I am planning on replacing the glass cover that came with the tank with Lexan so I can cut holes for water propagation as I have many plants, including pothos for nitrate export. Because of my small space, his tank doesn't need a heater (stays at around 76-78) but I am in need of lighting and filter recs.
I am also planning on donating my old tank to my local plant shop which has a beautiful betta...in a tiny glass betta bubble on the wall so advice on that setup is welcome as well. I've included pics of my current setup and the new tank.
Mahalo in advance!!

2021.10.15 22:57 OrigamiRose7 How long does it take to see a refund in PayPal?
I had to go through PayPal to request a refund as a seller never sent out an item I bought and ignored my messages on Depop. The seller messaged me through PayPal and said they refunded me, but I don’t see anything on my end. Does anyone know how long it takes to see the refund?
Thanks so much for your replies!!

2021.10.15 22:57 PottedPlant_123 you know who would REALLY be a good guest character?
The Joker, because him being on the injustice 2 base roster despite his death being in the first scene of the entire series is bull, it made sense in the first game but in the second it was blatant pandering, he would be a way better guest character

2021.10.15 22:57 Flame_008 I’m having issues with controls in Fnaf VR DLC
I can’t seem to move in the dlc in the corn maze or the hallway levels. I’m sure it’s something to do with maybe a lack of certain buttons on my controllers. I don’t have a D-pad on my controllers, idk if that’s the issue or not. I’m using an HP reverb. Has anyone else had this issue and how did you resolve it? Thanks

2021.10.15 22:57 Hawxicity Have the devs stopped working on Pakka Pets?
As mentioned in the title, the latest updates I can find have been from 2015. I can't seem to find a clear answer, did something happen during development? Did they not reach the intended amount on Kickstarter? Or did the devs just lose interest?
Thanks for any answers!
