5 Things You Should Know – Part 107

Here are 5 things you should know.

1. If you are steadily becoming paranoid, leave your house immediately and buy a CO detector.

Really just go buy one right now. If you already have one, check that it’s functioning. By the time you get paranoid you could already have brain damage and won’t be in a mental state to save yourself.

It’s really scary. Basically, gives you hypoxia without any feeling of loss of breath as you have normal CO2 levels. At that point, you literally are unable to help yourself. Go to the 5-minute mark here and see must how helpless you are on low oxygen. Really starts affecting him at 6 minutes.

Carbon monoxide poisoning symptoms:

  • Dull headache
  • Weakness
  • Dizziness
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Shortness of breath
  • Confusion
  • Blurred vision
  • Loss of consciousness

2. If you don’t have access to Dramamine for motion sickness you can substitute Benadryl to reduce the symptoms.

Dramamine is great for motion sickness but not always readily available. Benadryl is a very similar type of medication and more commonly on hand. Benadryl doesn’t last as long but should take effect more quickly.

3. The etiquette of shaking hands differs by culture. If you’re traveling to a foreign country or interacting with a diverse group of people, do a little research.

Some cultures require a firm handshake. Some require a looser handshake. Some require you to look in the eye. Some require you to greet the oldest in the group first. Some think it’s inappropriate to shake the hand of a woman. Some require a bow. It all depends.

4. There’s a playlist on Spotify now called Showgoing that only plays songs from bands touring your city.

If you frequently go to shows, you’re probably familiar with the process of finding concert calendars and looking up bands individually. This Showgoing thing is great because now you don’t have to comb through the calendars, you can just hit play once on the playlist and know anything you like will be coming to town soonish.

Here’s the link https://open.spotify.com/user/showgoing

5. How to transfer playlists between streaming services.

  1. STAMP, which is like $10 for lifetime subscription but does a pretty good job.
  2. Soundiiz is also well regarded.
  3. Manually doing each song one by one.
