LPT: When doing anything that can damage your eyes, invest $2 in some safety glasses that meet ANSI Z87.1 so you can see what you're doing.

LPT: When doing anything that can damage your ears, invest $0.10 in a pair of ear plugs. Double up if possible when shooting firearms (ear muffs and ear plugs).

Don't skimp out on eye protection people! It's so cheap that nobody should even consider that a cost saving measure. You only get one pair of eyes after all. Good and cheap pair of eye protection is the Pyramex I-Force goggles for $25 CAD or $16.50 USD ( link and link). If you want a more traditional looking set of goggles there's also the Pyramex V2G-XP ( link and link).

To answer the obvious questions:

  • Yes, he was fine afterwards. He got very, VERY lucky. Went to the hospital as a precaution. UPDATE: He was hit where the eyelid covers the bottom of your eye. Was temporarily blinded in that eye but will suffer no long lasting effects.
  • They were soccer glasses. Obviously not rated. Nobody knew what he was thinking.
  • Checks of eye pro will be more through at the field for the next while, that's for sure.

You can get these if you need prescription lenses. These people are selling a 5 dollar product for 70. That's fucking ridiculous.

u/chipx86 · 51 pointsr/bayarea

I'm originally from the Chico area, and the Camp Fire hit my social circle pretty hard. I went up to help out in the make-shift camps/shelters being set up, dropping off and passing out supplies. The smoke was so bad that in the middle of the day, there was very little sunlight.

Some tips I've learned:


1. It's all about PM2.5 particles

Last year, people were sharing masks and filters that weren't sufficient for the true hazards in the air, the PM2.5 particles. These can get into your lungs and blood stream and wreck havoc long-term. So you need filters that cover these. Always look for that (and P95/N95 ratings on masks), and don't fall for some of the trendy-looking-but-otherwise-useless masks some people share around the Internet, or think that a surgical mask is going to do any good.


2. Treat yourself to quality personal air filters and goggles

Buy a good reusable N95/P95 respirator. The little paper-like masks are good in a pinch, but you're going to find that they're not that comfortable to breathe in, and if you wear glasses, you're going to fog them up.

I recommend the 3M 07193 Dual Cartridge Respirator. This is technically disposable (you can get replacement particular filters, but the carbon filter can't be replaced). However, it will actually last you a fairly long time. They're affordable and you're going to feel like you can actually breathe comfortably, even in heavy smoke, especially compared to those little disposable masks. I have a couple of these so that I can share with those around me.

I've since picked up the 3M 65021HA1-C Respirator, which is P100 (better than a P95/N95, adding resistance to solids and liquids containing oil) and has replacement organic vapor/particulate filter cartridges.

Along with these, some good safety goggles will help keep the smoke out of your eyes. I find these Dewalt DPG82-11 goggles to be pretty comfortable, even with glasses (though they may be a difficult fit for larger glasses).


3. Buy a new, quality home air filter

You have whole-house air filters in your home/apartment, and they probably do nothing for smoke. Most air filters people buy help with allergens only. So do yourself a favor and buy some air filters before they're out of stock everywhere. Something along the lines of the 3M Filtrete MPR 1900 filters or, even better, the MPR 2200 filters (make sure you get the right size for your place, but I think 14x24x1 is pretty standard?).

MPR 1900 ratings are a minimum requirement here. There's a chart on that Amazon link in the product pictures that shows you what filters you need based on what you're trying to filter. Look for the PM 2.5 Air Pollution.

Note that the higher the filter, the more your heating system will have to work, so just be aware of that.


4. Buy good portable air purifiers for the home

Along with the whole-house filter, you're going to want something you can put by the door or the windows (by the way, close those windows). I have a few of the Vornado AC350 air purifiers (one for Palo Alto, a couple for my place in Chico). They're not cheap (and right now they're more expensive than they were -- I paid $99 -- so shop around).

You'll also want replacement filters. In a pinch, you can wash the old filters, but I don't that that's a good long-term solution.


5. Car filters!

If the smoke gets really bad, and you're driving around in it a lot, your car's cabin filter is going to capture a lot of that smoke, and that's going to start working its way back into your cabin. You might want to consider getting your cabin filter replaced.

I know this can be done manually, just buy one online, take out the old, replace it. I had the dealership do this for me in Chico, but they were doing this for free for everybody, so... Lucked out there.


6. Avoid being outside as much as you can

If you don't have to go anywhere, don't. It's just not worth exposing yourself. You don't know what's in that smoke, or how well protected you are. Just prepare, buy food for the home, get the filters, and minimize how often you leave the house. This isn't always practical, and if you do have to leave, make sure you and your family are using quality air filters.

Check the air quality on a site like PurpleAir. Don't rely exclusively on your phone's Weather app. You want to use something that's tracking many sensors in an area, not just one or two official sensors.


Stay safe.


Edit: Added a link to the PurpleAir air quality map.

For some reason, they look blue, whereas glass that blocks blue would look yellow-orange. Like these ones, that block almost all blue (probably going a bit too far).

u/ILikeMeSomeAvocado · 36 pointsr/LifeProTips

For $8 you can have f.lux on all of your devices with a pair of orange safety glasses. Blue light really keeps me awake in the evenings. From my computer, phone, fluorescent lighting, tv, whatever. These are basically f.lux for real life and work very well.

u/broken42 · 30 pointsr/airsoft

Valken Zulus are [Pyramex I-Force goggles](

Valken Sierras are Pyramex V2G-XPs

Valken Echos are Pyramex Highlander XPs

Valken Axis are Pyramex V3Gs

Valken Alphas appear to be Pyramex Low Profile Chemical Splash goggles

The only goggles that Valken sells that aren't rebranded Pyramex goggles are the Tangos, and those are just knockoff Revision Desert Locusts.

u/herman_gill · 29 pointsr/Fitness

Yeah any D3 would be fine, it might be better if it's already immersed in oil though (drops in oil, or gelcaps). That's true of any fat soluble though.

Anxiety begone = Taurine, Inositol, Theanine, and also potentially even aniracetam halps... actually ZMA would help too (magnesium at least, and zinc for depression). For your budget is that including ZMA/Vit D and all that crap? I'm going to pretend like it isn't... lulz

I know you are worried about high cortisol, and I recently just developed a science-boner for Phosphatidylserine again, but it's expensive... I'm gonna add it to my stack and see if it helps with gains, wanna also be a guinea pig for it?

Supps to buy:

Beta-Alanine 500g $22 (1.4g/day)

Creatine 1000g $13 (2.8g/day, I know it's "low dosing it" but it should be more than enough if you're eating the meats)

Inositol 400g $20

Theanine 40g $14

Choline Citrate 500g $13

ALCAR 500g $15

MSM 500g $11 (this is because you're an achy old man, lulz)

Taurine 1000g $14

Expensive but awesome (especially for cortisol and potentially for sleep too, also helps with exercise/fatigue and might be an ergogenic):

Phosphatidylserine 50g $28

Total cost: $150... If you want to crush the shit out of your anxiety you can buy 1000g instead of 400g of Inositol and your total cost runs to $170, but I don't think it'll be necessary... unless your anxiety is getting really bad. But on the other hand it might halp with your gainz too (I have a currently unsubstantiated theory that Inositol is good pre-workout because of it's serotonin regulating actions, and it's also synergistic with choline).


Mixing instructions:

Pre-workout (15-45 minutes before):
All the Beta-Alanine, Creatine, Choline, ALCAR, MSM, half the Phosphatidylserine (25g), half the Theanine (20g), half the Taurine (500g)... If you buy the 1000g of Inositol also use half the Inositol here too (500g)
Total = 3545g, or about 10g/day (4045g with Inositol or about 11g/day)

Taurine + Beta-Alanine together actually helps prevent the Beta-Alanine tingles you don't like so much too. They are absorbed at the same site, but co-administration doesn't prevent Beta-Alanine absorption... so I think it might act to slow it's absorption to manageable levels, sorta like fiber for protein (stopping protein farts)

Pre-sleep (30-60 minutes before):
Half the Taurine, half the PS (25g), half the theanine (20g), all the Inositol (or 500g if you buy 1000g)
Total: 945g/day or 2.5g/half a teaspoon (1045g/day with more Inositol, or 2.85g/day)

To mix the supps: Get a big container, throw everything in, and shake the ever loving shit out of it. I'd suggest you shake the container every single time you add in a new supp to the batch. Maybe also throw it in a blender or something for an even distribution before hand. Also shake the ever loving shit out of it every time you want to take a scoop of it too. It'll be a nice pre-workout warm up, lol. If you want to run the batch through a strainer that also wouldn't be a bad idea by any means.

Oh also I'd like to add all these supps mixed together don't actually taste that awful. Slightly fishy/vinegary smell, but can't tell too much in water... a little bit sour


Vit D $10 (you already know this, but 4000IU/d on days you don't get sunlight, 2000IU/d during the summer). Take dat shit earlier in the morning. Also silvy's coupon code for dat commission OFU651. It works out to $8 shipped or something like that if you use it. But I'd also recommend buying it for the rest of the family and scaling dosages based on body weight (30-50IU/kg is completely safe year round, and kids actually need a decent amount because their skeletons are still developing and all that)

ZMA*4 $40 (take 2/day, one during breakfast, one pre-bed)... although if you're cheap you could just take 1/day and that'd also be perfectly legit. I'd have 2/day personally if you're eating lots of dairy (need more mag) and grainz (need more zinc). So $20 or $40, but 1/day is perfectly fine.

Just buy the damn glasses $8, you can also get a pair for your wife and the little guy so you won't be the only weirdo in the house. It's also a one time expense, so it's not substantial. Wear them at least hour or so before bed and leave them next to your bed for whenever you need to get up during the night to pee or whatever (but you won't with the sleep stack, it'll knock you the fuck out).

Proper melatonin regulation = say goodbye to dat breast cancer and various other illnesses associated with shift work sleep disorder. Everyone has a mild case even if they work days because of screwed up light schedules. Also don't forget to turn the lights on in your room first thing in the morning and open your blinds. Also dat flux.


Oh, if you wanna add something pre-workout (I don't know if it would stop the gainz at all but it'd definitely be great for fat loss) and a very mild stimulant that's probably fairly healthy but tastes like plastic on it's own (but smells great!); then buy some of this guy for $10 and throw it all into your pre-workout. It'd also help you tell whether or not the powder is evenly, and it's right around the standard dosage (137mg instead of 100mg, but whatevs). I'd actually serious recommend adding this because you're trying to cut.


Before you ask, yes I did spend like half an hour writing this, totes worth it. Every time I do a kb swing I think of you, and every time I almost break my arm foolishly attempting 1 armed barbell snatches I think of svunt... It's like me and you with Vitamin D. Good luck, you beautiful man =D


Edit: To everyone else reading this, if there are things you would like to add/change because you can afford it.

Here is what I would recommend:

Switch the 500g of Choline Citrate to 150g of Alpha-GPC (or buy in bulk for 3 years) ($65 or $140 for 3 years)

Switch the 500g ALCAR to 200g LCLT and 300g GPLC $26 and $50)

Add in Citrulline to the preworkout, 2250g ($135)

You can also easily add another 1000g of Creatine and 500g of Beta-Alanine as well.

But all those changes adds a huge amount of cost to the supps. If I'd had to order the cost:effectiveness ratio of the additions I'd say Creatine>Beta-Alanine>Alpha-GPC>Carnitines>Citrulline

u/beetling · 25 pointsr/jailbreak

You can get orange glasses that block out blue light for $8 on Amazon. They look goofy, but they'll do the job that f.lux does.

u/real_nice_guy · 25 pointsr/simpleliving

Everyone here has said meditation so far, which is great, but I'm going to offer up some different approaches.

I used to have a similar problem, information addiction is a real thing. I believe that the brain gets used to having such a high load of information going in, that it uses this information as a distraction, usually from either boredom or something bad that's going in on your own life. Also there's something to be said for the tiny little endorphin hits you get for every e-mail you receive or every page you open. That's the most likely cause of information addiction - addiction to this tiny chemical.


The way I got around it was several things. I didn't try meditation because normally my mind is pretty quiet, however I did notice that my sleep was messed up from being on my laptop so much, so the first thing I did was I got a pair of these glasses that block out the blue light from your computer screen which disrupts melatonin secretion which in turn disrupts your sleep pattern. Since wearing them for an hour or two before bed, I'm able to get to sleep a lot easier. Even when I'm not on my computer, I still wear them and I feel the onset of sleepiness hit me really hard around 10pm, whereas before I could only feel sleepy around 2am, which is awful. since I've been doing this, I've gone to bed around 11ish and been up at 7 bright and early the next day, even without an alarm. If you couple this with doing some book reading and shutting off that computer, you'll sleep like a baby. Although this isn't related to information addiction per se, it's still the best $8 you can spend if you have to use a computer late into the night and still want to be able to sleep well afterwards.

Will power - mindfulness

Secondly, I just used my will power to not go on my laptop as much. Any time I thought "yeah I'll just go on Google news and see what's happening with that cruise ship that sank in Korea" I'll go for a walk outside, or read a book, or listen to music, or go do that one chore I've been putting off for forever. Although in the beginning these things may seem boring, the more you force yourself out of the information overload, the more you'll begin to pay attention to the subtleties around you, which I suppose is a form of meditation - mindfullness - except I'm not advocating sitting somewhere and controlling your breathing, I think active meditation while doing things is incredibly useful. Sometimes, there just isn't time to sit somewhere and meditate. I know the maxim "if you don't have an hour to meditate, you need two," but tell that to the parent of 2 kids who has a full time job too. In non-meditation terms though, this is what i mean: I'll do things like really pay attention to how I prepare each stage of my breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and I'll put in an extra minute of effort to present my food nicely so it looks nicer to eat, but during those extra few minutes, my mind is totally concentrated on this one thing. If I find my mind wandering, I'll bring it back to what I'm doing. I'll give the same sort of attention to music - picking out individual parts of the song and discerning between instruments. By the end of the song you'll have kind of zoned out (which let's be honest, while not an aim of meditation, is nice to do sometimes) and be totally quiet.

No more internet news

Thirdly, I no longer go to the internet for my news. 99% of the things that happen on earth have no effect on my life whatsoever, and realizing this is not "being ignorant to the world around you" - you're avoiding falling victim to the media that says you have to be afraid of everything all the time, and if you're not you're falling behind the times and sticking your head in the stand.

Hear me now: that is bullshit. Having a healthy mind allows you to function and live your life as you want it, and gives you a sense of knowing when something is actually dangerous, as opposed to everything being dangerous.

If I need to know something, I'll know about it.

So, what I do is I turn on the radio, usually to NPR, in the mornings for about 15 minutes, get a rough overview of what's going on today just so I know what other people are talking about, then I'll sit there listening to music and I'll think about what I heard and critically analyze what's going on, form some opinions, and then go about my day. If I need some in depth comentary, I'll pick up a newspaper, because that still forces me to sit there and read words on a page, and not flip between things, which I used to do on the internet - it's incredible that I can click between 15 news sources and read them interchangeably second by second, but it's by no means healthy training the brain to do that I don't think. Being able to sit there and read one thing with your full attention, I believe is the best way forward.

I think this a lot healthier than being spoonfed the fear and anxiety news stations give you so that you'll keep listening to their station, or going on their website.

Knowledge as power

The idea that "Knowledge is power," is a half-truth, the real truth here is relevant knowledge is power. You won't find the Donald Trumps, or the Tim Cooks, or the Jeff Bezos of the world sitting there soaking up all the information they can in the world. They don't give a shit about what's going on in the Sudan unless it effects their company or their lives. If they do know about it, they don't agonize about it. They don't have time to have a scattered brain - they pin point exactly what they need to know, acquire it, use it, then move on. The power is being able to let go of the need to know about everything, because you'll find after a while that you actually know very little that can directly benefit your life, and the lives of those around you.

u/YouAreSalty · 23 pointsr/xboxone

I got these, which is tested by Consumer Reports to have best blue light blocking abilities. It works over my glasses too and is made by Honeywell.

The only thing is since it blocks out so much it makes everything really orange too and takes some getting used too. Most others don't block as well and thus you see more color.

u/askingRDT · 19 pointsr/dataisbeautiful

I'm sure you probably already know about apps like Twilight and the desktop app F.Lux... I'd also recommend these goofy looking things. I find that it really helps, esp. if its late but I need to use the computer, or go to a store with fluorescent lighting. They scratch kind of easily but are fairly cheap to replace.

u/SabinCrusades · 18 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

I got you covered, fam.

Wearing 'em right now, as a matter of fact. These ones are ideal for me since I wear glasses and I can wear these over them. But they make regular sunglass versions, if you prefer that.

One thing to note, these aren't to be used as a replacement for sunglasses. You'll have trouble distinguishing the colors on stoplights. Long story short, these are for home use, or office use (if you don't mind getting odd looks from people.) Pros outweigh the cons, IMO.

This are great if you have migraine issues induced by looking at blue light from screens and monitors. And I always wear it an hour before falling asleep. It helps beyond belief. And yes, these are perfect for late-night Switch gaming.

u/LilGrunties · 18 pointsr/kratom

Let me start by saying I understand the struggle to sleep. I spent 13 years on sleeping pills and have finally been fully of for 1 year now. You should strongly consider something other than benadryl. Regular anticholinergics use has a very strong link to dementia later in life. Consider some of these:

u/Terrik27 · 17 pointsr/DecidingToBeBetter

Ah, something I'm unfortunately an expert at! Skip to point 3 if you just want to read about the light, I'm pasting in something I wrote on a different thread. I have suffered from really dramatic SAD for years (Minnesota) and have finally got a handle on it.

For me, it revolves around 3 categories: Exercise, Vitamin D, and Light. Especially blue light. Also, I didn't realize until I started really digging into it how poorly researched SAD is. . .

  1. Exercise: The "easiest" one. Getting your heart rate up once a day appears to be very effective in combating depression generally, and seasonal depression specifically. Being a ginormous nerd, I bought a smart trainer to strap my bike into, and cycle fast for 30 minutes every morning through virtual lava fields in Zwift. It definitely seems to help, and I'm no longer 'foggy' in the morning, but I'm still having issues fitting it into my schedule. . . it probably takes 45 minutes more in the morning, total, to fit this in. . .

  2. Vitamin D: My entire family is known to be chronically deficient in Vitamin D, so I supplemented with the suggested dose of 2,000 IU a day for the last year. While getting a blood-test for an unrelated reason, I asked if the doctor could also check my Vitamin D levels, and they were hysterically low, ~14 nmol/L. Normal levels are around 85, and anything below 30 is deficient. With this new knowledge I started dosing with 25,000 iu a day, and noticed an immediate improvement in my mood. I've considered really cranking this up as there seems to be no documented negatives from too much vitamin D (if you drink adequate water, at least) but 25K seems to be working for me.

  3. Light: The tricky one. . .
  • I had a standard "10,000 Lux!" light box that was a hand-me-down from someone who hadn't found it effective. . . I didn't find it effective either. Some research showed that these were only rated at 10,000 lux when you were 8 inches from the light and looking at it. That's not going to happen. This model made no difference at all.

  • Looking around for a DIY solution with many more lumens, I ran across this blog: and This seemed like a good way to go: find the maximum lumens per dollar possible and spend what I could justify. Out came the spreadsheet, and at 183 lumens per dollar, this LED floodlight won the prize: I was thinking of getting 2 or 3, but I've only gotten one so far as a trial. It is SO BRIGHT. I'm intending to mount this over my bike trainer to get a blast of light while exercising. . .

  • Blue light is king, apparently. . . a fairly narrow band of blue (Lower than 540nm) controls the circadian rhythm. In an effort to get enough of the blue wavelength, I tried having a very bright white light at my desk at work. This was ridiculously over-bright, led to a lot of eye-strain, and seemed to have only nominal effectiveness. To try to deal with the 'blue issue' I was going to do two things:
    Wear blue-blocking glasses every night starting 90 minutes before bed. Richard actually got me turned on to these, and they seem to work really well:
    Wire up some LED's in the specific blue wavelength to use at my desk at work. However, I happened to find an (overly expensive) ready to go solution to this from Phillips: This sits on my desk just below my monitor and beams JUST blue light into my face, within my field of vision. I can comfortably have this on for several hours in the morning, and it seems to make a huge difference. I think.
    The light and the glasses seem to agree, as wearing the glasses makes the light very nearly disappear. . .

    TL;DR: Use a LOT of blue light in the morning, block blue light late at night.

u/juliaplayspiano · 14 pointsr/bikecommuting

I ride year-round in Chicago, but had never gotten goggles or a mask, since I didn't love how big they seemed to be. I added these 3M glasses to an Amazon order recently and was quite pleased with how they worked! They didn't fog up while I was waiting at longer red lights like sunglasses usually do, and the coverage was enough to keep my eyes from watering. Highly recommended!

Good luck.

u/_latch · 11 pointsr/askscience

Twlight, f.lux, etc. are steps in the right direction for circadian rhythms, but are relatively useless in my opinion if all other sources of artificial blue/white light aren't filtered out as well, such as lamps. The only way to really block out all artificial blue light is to wear blue light blocking glasses at night.

Pyramex I-Force for your eyes

OneTigris Mask for your face. Although a normal mask will work, the OneTigris is more comfortable and basically what everybody has started wearing

Edit: i messed up the links somehow

u/mooglinux · 7 pointsr/ADHD

One thing I find helpful is to wear a pair of Uvex SCT-Orange safety glasses. Those are what dentists use to protect themselves from the blue and ultraviolet light in their filling cure tools. There are lots of far more expensive products that are intended to do the same thing, but these safety glasses do a better job and are cheap as dirt.

Blue light is how your body determines whether it is day or night. Electronic screens like a laptop or phone emit a LOT of blue light due to the way they are color balanced. Wearing those an hour before bed helps me relax, because my brain has time to realize that no blue light = time to sleep. There is a program you can install on your computer called f.lux which tints you screen to accomplish the same thing.

Of course, being ADHD I am very very inconsistent in using these tools myself hah.... But at least I have them available!!

u/byteflop · 7 pointsr/rit

u/cambamkun · 7 pointsr/airsoft

G&G CM16 is solid. It has rails, is pretty light, and is suitable for CQB. Get him a couple of hi-cap magazines, 9.6v butterfly battery and smart charger to go with it and he's set gun wise.

Eye and Face pro:
I really like my Pyramex I-Force, never fog, low-profile, and meet the ANZI impact requirements so his eyes will be safe. The OneTigris mesh mask is really comfortable and will protect his face and more importantly his teeth. There are some that clip onto FAST and BMP helmets as well. Small version and one with ear-pro attached.

Honestly if he holds the barrel, there's no need to spend money on a grip, you can always go back and buy it later if he wants it. Same goes for the other equipment and attachments, stick with the basics and make sure he likes it before heavily investing.
A lot of people stand by Just Airsoft Ammo for BBs. Only use .2g BBs at the minimum. .12s and cheap BBs will mess up the gun's internals and may shatter on impact, potentially seriously injuring the person who was shot.

u/TheDunadan29 · 6 pointsr/news

There are the gun glasses, those things are actually pretty resilient. I mean you shouldn't intentionally shoot directly at them, but we shot at a broken pair at scout camp and it deflected a couple of rounds. They broke after more than that, but it was a good reminder that they do actually offer protection from a stray bullet or two. And they are meant to bend, or deform around the bullet, not shatter, which is important.

That said a full metal jacketed 5.56 NATO round probably will go right through it like butter, so depends on what they're using. But, if you're getting shot at with even .22 long rifle you should probably run away anyway, getting your eyes shot out are only one terrible thing that could happen.

I think the pellets the protestors are being shot with are considered "non-lethal" and moderate eye protection should prevent you from getting hurt like this.

Edit: you don't have to go fancy, these are relatively cheap:

The "don't go to sleep for a night and go to bed early the next day" advice won't work for you if you have Delayed Phase Sleep Syndrome.

The only solution that worked for me (and my situation was almost desperate) was changing my eating patterns (particularly the timing) and avoiding blue light spectrum after sunset. Your body should associate light + socializing + food with the time of the day you should be awake. If you stay in front of your computer at night watching videos and eating the brain and body think it's daytime and your schedule will get really messed up.

  1. The blue light spectrum blocks the realease of melatonin and interferes with your sleep patterns. Buy blueblock glasses (
    and wear them after sunset if you are at home (it is very important to avoid watching computer and mobile screens in the evenings before bedtime...I do it anyways but ALWAYS wear the glasses). Upon waking up, go for ten minutes under the sun, or get the room very bright (you can buy a blue light spectrum device such as

  2. If you need a miracle: Do a 16 hour fast before your intended awaking time to reset your circadian rythm. Then eat immediately upon waking up. (This guy explains it better than me:

    In theory one day should be enough. One day didn't work for me, but I have severe Delayed Phase Sleep Syndrome, my situation was desperate, and nothing worked...this literally changed my life. I did it for several days. Usually nowadays I don't eat after 18:30pm. if I'm at home. and I eat as soon as I'm awake

Wow no comments....

EDIT: Serious question: name everything you can remember eating this week, because maybe you're not eating enough because this is worrying you, I'm just trying to get all possibilities out there.

1 GO OUTSIDE for at least 30 minutes. Preferably in the EARLY morning, 7-8 A.M.

2 Drink a ton of water (at least 3 - 4 full glasses)

3 buy some red light bulbs and for you - do NOT get the 25 watt variety, since you're having so much trouble sleeping, I'll recommend the 15w varient to you, here

sleep saving red incandescent bulbs

4 download f.lux download ASAP Use the Darkroom mode.

5 Also IN ADDITION to f.lux, use UVEX "glasses" they are plastic and they filter out so much blue / green light (but not all green light) that even a CANDLE looks more yellow!

UVEX orange plastic wear
Just ordered these the other day, and I love them. They fit much better than the all orange version w/o the black frame.

Let me know if ANY of this helps, so that I know and also so you are aware of it and can tell others that may have the same sleep problem.

u/omg_drd4_bbq · 5 pointsr/DSPD

I have one routine which I call the Hard Reset Protocol. It's pretty hard to maintain long term, but I can do it for 1-2 weeks and lock down my circadian rhythm for several weeks at a time.

  • melatonin (1 mg sublingual ) around 9pm
  • orange goggles after 6pm, no exceptions
  • no electronic devices after 10pm, no exceptions
  • bed at midnight, alarm at 8, even weekends
  • Eat close to the same time and pattern every day
  • no caffeine after 3pm
  • daylight lights (200 watts CFL, 6500K) come on at 7am (this always is functioning)
  • Modafinil in the morning (50-100 mg)
  • lithium (300 mg) in the evening (not for the inexperienced)

    Between the melatonin and the orange goggles, I feel tranquilized by 11 and by midnight am out like a light. I tend to wake up 5 minutes before alarm, that means it's working.

    Also, going camping at the start really helps kick things off.

    As some have pointed out, this protocol is pretty brutal. Especially with the lithium, that is definitely "check with your doctor", or I solemnly swear I am up to no good"-level biohacking territory. It still works if you only get some of the elements, but there is a Voltron-like greater-than-sum-of-parts synergy effect when you get everything together. I would actually say lithium is the least important one, but for some people's biochemistries, it could be the lynchpin.

    But if you can follow the Hard Reset Protocol for a full two weeks and your circadian rhythm is still all over the place, you need to see a neurologist or something, because you may have a problem with your photosensitive ganglion. Essentially, this protocol grabs every Zeitgeber by the balls and says "You're coming with me".
u/top_shelf_sizzurp · 5 pointsr/depressionregimens

Light therapy has definitely helped me. I had SAD cycles as far back as middle school, but didn't know what was going on until halfway through college. Thankfully a therapist noticed the pattern and suggested a light box. I use it year round now, and turn it on as soon as my alarm goes off in the morning.

I'd also highly suggest policing your blue light exposure in the evening. That's the other side of the coin that people often ignore. We're exposed to so much artificial blue light from screens. The blue light tricks our brain into thinking it's daylight and screws up our production of melatonin and thus our sleep cycle. Your sleep cycle absolutely affects your physical and mental health. I use glasses like this at night when I'm watching TV or using my phone. I feel like limiting my light exposure has helped as much or more than the light box. The two approaches certainly support each other.

I wonder how different these are from these much cheaper welding goggles

Edit: sounds like you need welding goggles with a rating of 14 or higher so the linked ones (rating of 5) won't work.

It is not only during a solar eclipse that staring at the sun is bad for your eyes. People just need to be reminded during a solar eclipse since staring directly at the sun is how you witness the event.

> Also, how can I protect myself without some fancy-dancy special glasses for 50 bucks?

Welding goggles can be found for less than $10. You should probably buy darker lenses, which can also be found for less than $10. I would suggest a #14 shade or higher.

u/skittles_rainbows · 5 pointsr/Teachers

Um sounds like most of the students I've dealt with when it comes to severe disabilities. Welcome to moderate to severe disabilities. This is kind of the day to day. There is a difference between disability and behavior. This is disability. Yes it is involves behaviors, but at the same time it stems from disability.

It sounds like attention seeking behaviors. He needs an FBA (Functional Behavioral Analysis) and a BIP/BSP (Behavior Invention Plan/Behavior Support Plan).

So kicking you just block. Check out 1:30 for an example. Biting is counterintuitive. You push into the bite. When you push in it forces the mouth open and if you pull they can rip chunks of flesh off. As for spitting I always gave my staff wrap around safety glasses. Reason for wrap around is they cover the eye the most. I also keep my mouth shut. If you get saliva in your eye or mouth, you need to file workman's comp because its a bodily fluid and you need your shots. As for biting. That one is tricking. See the above. You need protection. Kevlar sleeves that most SPED classes have work for those who scratch and gouge. For biting they do a really good at holding in chunks of flesh an staunching the blood. I got my staff 23 inch welding gloves and cut the fingers off. You may still get bruises, ice helps, and so does arnica.

As for the FBA and BIP/BSP. There is something called ABC. Antecedent, Behavior, and Consequence. So antecedent is what happens before the behavior, behavior is well the behavior, and the consequence is what happens after the behavior. It doesn't mean an actual consequence. For example: a room is dark (antecedent), you turn on the light (behavior), you can see (consequence). Or you are told to stop doing a preferred activity by staff (antecedent), you throw a chair (behavior), you are given a physical escort to a cool down area (consequence). So what you need to do is fill out an ABC sheet. I made a pretty awesome one that you can see. It will help discover a behavior patter.

Then you need to look at why the behavior is happening. There are four functions of behavior. The reason you want to find out why is to write the FBA. These forms can be helpful.

Once you write an FBA you need to work on the BIP/BSP. Its all part of the package. Once you know all about the behavior you need to figure out what the hell to do about it. These are very basic forms and more research is needed to tailor it to the student. It needs to be implemented for 2-4 weeks and during that time take data about what is working and what isn't. Then make adjustments as needed.

Yeah. This is why a lot of people don't stay in mod/severe for long. The kids are violent. The behaviors are challenging. Many are not equipped to deal with the behaviors. This is just a common sense approach, but most teachers get lost in the behavior. They don't have someone to mentor them in how to do this.


u/some_random_kaluna · 5 pointsr/IndianCountry

Anyone going up to Standing Rock needs to bring a couple pairs of safety glasses with them for this--exact--reason. One pair should be clear so you can wear them at night, and the other pair should be polarized sunglasses for the snow glare in day.

u/sc_yang · 4 pointsr/medicalschool

hey i had a similar experience but thankfully avoided passing out. my mistake was not pinching my mask to prevent the vapors from fogging up my mask, and not wearing comfortable shoes. since then i picked up a pair of dansko clogs, and i wore a mask whenever i could to practice controlling my breathing whenever i felt that awful wave of panic and anxiety come on. you know the feeling. what i would do is start counting my breaths, nice and slow, until i got to 10, and then start over. it doesn't feel like it will help but once you get close to 10 you'll start to feel the wave pass. getting used to the mask and the feeling of restriction/claustrophobia that comes with that stupid sterile gown was the worst part for me. you may also want to consider getting your own eye protetion if you hate the visors that they have in the OR. i got these: and they've served me pretty well.

anyways in short: what worked for me was counting breaths, wearing a mask when i was outside of the OR to get used to it, pinching the nose tight so your breath vapors don't fog up your eyewear, and getting some clogs-- they're no good for running (or moving faster than a ponderous walk) but they're great support for standing. hope this helps!!

u/justin_tino · 4 pointsr/todayilearned

A tl;dr of this and other articles I looked at says blue light disrupts your circadian sleep cycles by suppressing melatonin release during sleep. Any light will really, but the melatonin suppression is increased by green light, and even more so from blue light (because colder colors have shorter wavelengths). If you look at any color chart, red is the polar opposite to blue, so to combat this, researchers suggest using red, or warmer, lighting at night. Another option is to use amber-tinted glasses, specifically for blocking blue light.
Also, f.lux is a program that you can download which will automatically adjust the blue light levels of your computer depending on time of day.

u/Sunjammer0037 · 4 pointsr/NoStupidQuestions

Yes, sleep hygiene is very underrated (to the point that most people probably haven't even heard of such term). I'll add a few more good tips:

  • limit exposure to blue light a few hours before going to bed, it disrupts melatonin. This one helped me the most. A lot of people know about F.lux and similar software, but I highly recommend taking it a step further and getting blue light-blocking glasses. I used these ones, they work much better than some of the more expensive options. And you can even wear your regular glasses on top. There's also an option with installing lightbulbs with a warmer colour temperature.

  • try to get enough daylight exposure during the day. Take a walk or exercise outside. It can get tricky during winter, in that case blue light lamps could help, they imitate natural daylight exposure, and are considered an effective treatment for seasonal affective disorder but can be helpful for those who don't have it too but suffer from insomnia or lack of energy due to not getting enough sun exposure. Vitamin D deficiency is also related to sleep issues.

  • I haven't personally tried this myself, but there's a lot of anecdotal evidence from people who use daylight-stimulating alarm clocks, saying it makes them wake up easier and have more energy in the day. For someone who hates being shocked out of bed with a loud alarm but would prefer waking up gently and in accordance to their sleep cycle, this could be a good option.

  • Diet as a whole matters too. Actually going to bed hungry can make it harder to fall asleep, so maybe it's best to experiment with what works for you. Certain vitamin and mineral deficiencies, like magnesium, are associated with sleep disorders, so it's a good idea to eat a healthy and nutritious diet.

  • try to have a before-bed ritual. Doesn't necessarily have to be reading a book, just try to unwind and give your body and mind time to adjust between the "awake" part of the day and "night" part of the day. I light some candles, burn essential oils (something sweet, not invigorating, that would have the opposite effect), turn off the light, brew myself a herbal tea and read in bed while giving myself a foot bath. Doesn't have to take long, you could make it 2 hours or only 20 minutes, but it would sort of signal to your mind that it's time to sleep soon.

    I used to have utterly fucked up sleeping patterns for years and finally managed to make myself a healthy sleeper, all of those helped me immensely.

    I also have one theory that I've never seen explained this way anywhere, but it makes perfect sense for me: most people would agree that if you wake up too late in the morning, you wouldn't be able to fall asleep easily if you went to bed very early that day, you simply wouldn't feel tired yet. However, I noticed that if I'm used to that sort of pattern, even waking up early one morning still doesn't make it easier to fall asleep that day, even though I'm supposed to feel more tired. It's not exactly a new theory, it's all about circadian rhythm, but my view is, the internal clock in our bodies expects the day (the "awake" part of our day) last a certain amount of time, and it gets so used to that amount of time that even being more tired can't instantly change it. I just don't feel like the day is over yet, it doesn't really register as "night" for me yet. I figured out that for me, the "awake" part of the day has to last 15-16 hours (I need a bit less sleep in summer). So even if I don't go to bed at the same time, I try to make my "day" the same length. For example, if I get up at 7am, I'll go to bed around 11, and then get up at 7 again, which would give me 8 hours of sleep that I need and fit neatly into 24 hours so that I can have the same schedule every day. Or I can push it around accordingly as I see fit or as needed. I could wake up at 9am and then would go to bed at 12am, maybe it would take me longer to fall asleep and next morning I would wake up before 9, but it would still be similar enough.

Ok. Keeping in mind that I'm US-based, I'm linking to US-based sites. Everything should be available through UK/European sites as well, I just don't know them as well(I'm assuming you're UK/European-based due to the currency). I'm also not including BBs into the initial cost, as I consider those to be a consumable item and tend to factor those into cost-of-play per day of playing.

Gun: I like this G&G Raider Shorty. $150. Alternatively, This CYMA AK is a good option as well, and comes in at $128.

Battery Charger: This is what I use $33

Battery: This one should fit both the Raider and the AK. Important note: If you're using lipos, and the gun is stock, you'll need to use a 7.4v lipo. The 11.1vs are going to shred your wiring. $13

Lipo Sack: You'll need one for charging your batteries $7

As an alternative, Amazon has a package deal for $40

Eye Protection: I like these Pyramex i-Force goggles $16

Face Protection: One Tigris makes this mask $16

Magazines: AK style Mag for $10/each or AR-style for $12/each. I'd recommend getting one extra for starters, and then get more as time and budget allow.

Belt: My normal choice would put you out of your budget, so there's this one that I've never used before that's normally $9, or there's this one from Condor that's $15.

Pouches: It's gonna depend on which rifle you choose, but there's this AK-style that's normally $9 or this AR-style also normally $9.

Almost forgot, barrel cover: It's generally considered good etiquette to have one of these on your gun when not in-play, and mot fields here in the US require them when not on an active field $2

Total Cost for AR-style: $254USD bundling where possible(you could save a little by not getting the belt for now. If you normally wear a belt, just attach the mag pouch to that belt. That'll bring the cost not on-sale to $245USD). Total Cost for AK-style: $230USD, also bundling where possible.

Personally, I'm more of a fan of ARs, but I'd go the AK route and spend the extra $$ on either a third magazine, or an extra battery.

As I'm thinking about it, a second important note on lipo batteries: charge them with the small white connector on the battery, NOT the one that connects to your gun. It might explode if you try to do that.

Hope this helps you out.

Safety goggles are much better, I do only a small amount of metalworking, but a lot of wood working, and man, the amount of splinters that I find on the top of my goggles is scary, if I were only wearing glasses, I'd have so much more splinters in my eyes. There are huge ranges of goggles. I have these and they're fantastic. Little bit of ventilation means no fog, and they're snug, and short (compared to [these things] ( so they don't restrict your vision much, and they work, well.

Had a buddy lose his vision in one eye doing woodworking because a splinter got under his glasses and skewered his eye (lathe), it's just not worth it. A little bit of annoyance in having to look directly at what you're doing is SOO worth having the full protection of not losing an eye.

In southern WI there are just those weeks where it is unsafe. Any time the actual temperature for the day is below 0 I opt to ride in doors and drive to work.

Above 0 having a good pair of winter biking shoes and full equipment makes it completely doable, though you will be slower.

The biggest issue most people face is fogging glasses. I picked up some anti fog construction glasses that work well, though I bought multiple pairs because after 10-15 rides and constantly wiping them the anti-fog is basically gone.

Some people have had luck with Mountain Climbing glasses, but I just can't justify $200-$300 on a pair of glasses that may work.

OP, I don't suggest biking in everything but if it is a nice 20-30 degree day get some gear and enjoy the outdoors.

Actually there is a thing called the retinohypothalamic pathway that is activated when a specialized chemical in your retina called "Melanopsin" is degraded upon exposure to blue light. This is a chemical that activates specialized neurons that bypass the visual cortex and go straight to the hypothalamus to degenerate Melatonin (waking you up in the morning).

Solution: Wear orange tinted glasses to block blue wavelengths http://http//

Ever try melatonin? It seems like a much more direct method than Ambien, and it's available over-the-counter (in the U.S. at least).

I can manage my "non-24" problem by

  • limiting my caffeine intake (I only consume it in the mornings)

  • limiting my late-night exposure to artificial blue light (try these)

  • using melatonin at bedtime to advance my circadian clock

I am not actively treating lyme currently. I have done longterm antibiotics and haven't seen good results. Due to concerns about longterm abx and gut flora issues, I have decided to treat mold issues and detox first and then come back around to eliminating lyme. I am currently not on any pharmaceuticals.

Mold/ Mycotoxin Binders: I am on activated charcoal (Bulletproof activated charcoal) to help bind and excrete mycotoxins. I couldn't tolerate Cholestyramine (Compounded without aspartame), it made me very ill. I also cycle chlorella. I go slowly because personally, when I take binders, I feel very sick and get very weird mentally, especially in regards to anxiety.
I also couldn't tolerate welchol, which made me suicidal but after going off it I felt fine.

Other considerations:

-Moved out of a water damaged building

  • Threw out belongings that I believed to be contaminated. (Many items that were thrown out had did not have visible mold.)

  • Liposomal Glutathione (I take the brand "readisorb")

  • Creatine (5g daily)
  • N-Acetyl-Cysteine
  • Magnesium Glycinate
  • Phosphatidylserine (200mg a day)
  • Fishoil (Nordic Naturals up to 4grams a day of EPA/DHA)
  • Probiotics
  • Prebiotics
  • Folate and b12 +other b vitamins
  • Curcumin
  • Minerals


    -Bluelight blocking glasses at night Heres some cheap ones: (

  • Infared Sauna

    -Clean diet, organic as much as possible, No gluten, low sugar, and I play around with dairy. Lots of grass fed beef and good veggies. (I was dairy free for a few years however when I eat it I feel fine.)

    -Avoidance of conventional household products. Instead: Natural detergents, soaps, toothpaste, shampoo, etc... I do use conventional aluminum containing deodorant because I have some less than ideal odor if I don't.

  • I keep journals on symptoms to help alleviate anxiety and monitor progress or lack thereof.

    -Air oasis filter to improve indoor air quality (bedroom)

    -Water filter in shower, Reverse Osmosis filter to drink from. (Ideally, you'd have a whole house filter but I do not.)

Agreeing with others that it does have blue light. Here's a great guide!id=Kindle%20Paperwhite/Kindle%20Paperwhite

The key things to look at is the Melanopic lux, getting that below 5 in the few hours before bed is the goal. Also the spectrum between about 420 and 540, shown on that page as a transparent curve in the background.

The kindle paperwhite is at 12, vs iphone/android phones at about 50. At half power (light level 13) the kindle is down at 2, which is pretty good.

You can also use blue light filter glasses. They should look orange, any that are clear will not work at all. Yes, the advertising is lying.

I like these

Which are also great for looking at your phone, or going to the bathroom.

It's a great site, it'll answer most of your blue light questions with every variation of device you can think of.

Before you try any medical interventions, buy a pair of these glasses and start putting them on 3-4 hours before you want to go to bed.

There is a fair amount of evidence that DSPS is related to exposure to artificial, blue light in the evening (i.e. from lights, computer screens, TVs, etc.) which impacts melatonin production and other hormones and cycles related to sleep and wakefulness. Those glasses are orange and block out most blue light. In fact, if you're wearing them and hold a blue pen and a black pen side by side, you can't tell the difference.

I've been using them for a little while now and have noticed a huge difference, both in my ability to fall asleep before midnight without any sleeping pills, and in my ability to wake up at a reasonable time in the morning without being super groggy.

If you cannot remove lights or stop staring at screens, I highly recommend these glasses -

They help me fall asleep on time everyday.

u/rundiablo · 3 pointsr/NintendoSwitch

There are actually plenty of pairs that fit over glasses. :)

(I own the last safety glasses style pair linked there and they fit perfectly fine over my reading glasses.)

u/ihcah · 3 pointsr/nutrition

I did that too- the flux program? These are just orange glasses (like workman's glasses, I got them for $9 on Amazon) that block ALL of the blue light that inhibits melatonin production. If you read the Amazon reviews, a lot of people have success with them when nothing else worked (including pharmaceuticals!).

u/hodor137 · 3 pointsr/ADHD

If you can't stop these activities altogether, you can get flux and/or blue-blocking glasses to cut down on the blue light from screens which inhibits melatonin. These work very well, although not perfectly. It's also why I'm a strong opponent of tablets for book-reading - get a kindle/nook.

u/Chrome4320 · 3 pointsr/watchpeoplesurvive

Right, depending on what level of protection you're after i'd say they offer 3 options:

Light - Bollé Tracker -

Medium - Bollé Cobra -

Heavy - Bollé Pilopsi -

I've only really got experiences with the Tracker and Pilopsi. I found the trackers slightly uncomfortable myself but i do have a rather wide head which could explain that, my brother tried them out and found them very comfortable! The Pilopsi goggles i've worn every day in work for the past 3 years or so, with very heavy use and throwing them around the shop I've replaced them twice due to the rubber seal starting to denature a little bit I'm guessing from sweat but the lens is extremely durable!

Basically I may be biased but I'd go for the Pilopsi any day of the week, extremely comfortable, virtually no peripheral view obstruction, plus the best sealing from the 3 options above!

Hope this was handy for you, if you've got any other questions in the same area i'd be happy to answer! :)

These orange glasses are another good option if you have many screens. They also prevent blue light from light fixtures, although that isn't as important as screens.

To get started you really only need protective gear and a gun.

For protective gear, I'd either recommend an inexpensive paintball mask like this or a lower mesh mask and goggles

For a gun, I'd recommend something like a G&G CM Raider or a KA TWS or a CYMA AK or something similar (M4 or AK is preferrable). Make a list of the best looking guns in your budget and post back here to help narrow it down. The high cap that comes with the gun should be enough, and if you really want then you can buy an extra one which will definitely be enough.

From there you will want a battery and charger from HobbyKing (I wont make specific recommendations since it will depend on the gun) and some good quality BBs (I wont make a recommendation as this depends on where you are playing).

It is more than possible to get into the game with that kind of budget, settle on the absolute essentials (protective gear first, then gun, battery, charger, and BBs) and then you can look at investing in other areas in your gear. I'd recommend that you play for a good while before expanding your loadout so that you specialise in an area that you really enjoy playing.

Check the super useful links in the sidebar for more information and good luck!

u/disgruntledJavaCoder · 3 pointsr/airsoft

Pyramex I-Force are very popular goggles. I believe OneTigris mesh masks are the most popular mesh lower. Also available without ear protection if you prefer that, though I think most would suggest going with ear protection built in.

u/MachoNacho95 · 3 pointsr/LeftWingAirsoft

I believe a 11.1V LiPo might be a bit too strong for a cheap AEG (Automatic Electric Gun) like the CM028, so for a beginner I'd recommend a 7.4V LiPo. Also important is to get a balance charger like the IMAX B6. If you don't use a balance charger, the battery may die or even burst into flames (since there is always a tiny risk of LiPos catching on fire even if you do everything right, store them in a fireproof container).

As for eye and face protection, a good and cheap combination are the Pyramex I-Force Dual Pane Anti-Fog Goggles at ~$16 and the OneTigris Foldable Mesh Mask at ~$15-17. You could play without lower face protection, but it's very easy to lose a tooth if you get shot in the face and replacing teeth is extremely expensive.

I personally use a paintball mask (the Dye i4 to be exact), because it's more comfortable and basically impossible to fog up, but a paintball mask is usually pretty expensive ($90-180) and won't be welcome at Milsim events.

If you have some money to burn (like $500+) and want to acquire really easily transferable skills (great demonstration of that here:, you can go down the GBB (Gas Blowback) route. Those guns are more expensive to buy, spare mags are more expensive and they need routine maintenance, but training with and using them constantly will yield great improvement in your skill with real firearms because they function almost exactly like real firearms (if that's something you're interested in). And also GBBs are extremely fun xD

Or for a compromise between realism and budget, get an AEG rifle and a GBB pistol. Good GBB pistols can be had for as low as $100, a great budget choice here is the WE Glock 17.

u/InevitablyChloe · 3 pointsr/airsoft

Goggles + face shield: I would recommend the Pyramex I-Force goggles. They are extremely light and dependable for all types of gameplay. For some reason, I can't make them fog (which is really good btw), and the price is pretty damn good too. Also, stay clear away from mesh goggles. For face protection, I would use a metal mesh mask. Any will do (I haven't seen any company screw up mesh masks yet).

Batteries: For a battery, my input would be to start with a 9.6v NiMH battery (you seem to already have one). If you know how to take care of them, upgrade to a 7.4v LiPo battery for the best performance. The 'C' rating should be around 15C if you are just beginning your use of LiPos.

Charger: For different battery types, it depends. A lot of people say that Tenergy Smart chargers work great with NiMH batteries, so I'll throw that on (feel free to correct me if there is a better one). For LiPos, I personally use a Turnigy Accucel-6, which has had no problems for me yet (again, please correct me if there is a better one).

Internals/Tools: I wouldn't say to open your GB yet if you aren't willing to devote some time. If you are, then I would say to pick up a set of allen wrenches/hex keys in multiple sizes, a set of screwdrivers in varying sizes, tweezers, pliers, wire cutters, Dremel, soldering iron, and a couple neodymium magnets (for keeping things in place, like ARLs).

The first things you want to upgrade (in my opinion, your build will vary) would be your motor and hopup bucking. Your motor basically drives the trigger response, rate of fire, and torque (ability to pull strong springs) of your gun.

A good 16TPA motor like the SHS High Torque or the ZCI Balanced will be good for most applications. They both have a good mix of trigger response and speed, and get you about 20RPS on a 9.6v NiMH, M120 spring, and 18:1 gears (results may vary). For higher torque builds (M125 and above), use a 22TPA motor for good trigger response and loss of fire rate. Do some research to find which motor is right for you.

Your hop-up bucking is one of the most important things to upgrade. Upgrade to a Prometheus Purple, Maple Leaf, or Lonex bucking for better consistency. In almost every application, flathopping the bucking is vital (you can search up how to flathop. there are plenty of articles out there).

BBs (Pellets): For your BBs, go with Elite Force BBs (.25s work for most applications). They are well-priced, and are some of the best BBs that I have used.

Guide: Search the forums and this subreddit. I don't want to type an essay, and it would do you much more good to search it up yourself (you learn more if you find it yourself instead of listening to me).

Maintenance: Refer to above, but do lube your gun every one in a while. (also research on how to do that).

A good 416 would be the VFC HK416 CQB, or the TM Recoil Shock 416 (can't find link sorry). Either are good choices and are relatively low-priced.

An AEG will serve you well. A well-upgraded AEG is dependable and cheaper to run than a GBBR. Most airsoft guns have Picatinny rails that can take real-steel attachments, so you're good there.

Do NOT get the 'discoveryline' one. It's not worth it. The two I mentioned above are the best, and will let you upgrade as you wish.

Best of luck!

u/DaGreatPenguini · 3 pointsr/bugout

This is great - I especially like the purpose-built mindset with reasonable goals, such as getting home from work. I've set up my car bag in a similar way, but also with the idea of having my 5 year old in tow.

I've been in two situations where I've been stranded and had to get home: twice in New England where I've been stranded in my car during freak blizzards, and again during 9/11 in DC where I was REALLY reluctant to get in the Metro (i.e., underground soft target with thousands of freaked-out commuters) during a very real terror attack on our nation's Capitol.

My bag is essentially the same as yours, except for the winter I cycle in appropriate clothes. I've also included construction goggles with my N99 filtration mask(s). Also, extra socks and Leukotape, which is better than moleskin for the dreaded long walk home. Zip ties and duct tape are also included in case I have to fix stuff that will inevitably fail.

u/FlapjackHatRack · 3 pointsr/Welding

I had the same problem so I bought these on Amazon. They work very well under most conditions, just keep them wrapped in a case when not in use as tiny scratches will allow fog to build up.

u/lorpo1994 · 3 pointsr/airsoft

The battery type in that gun is a 'nunchuck' type which exists out of 2 stick batteries wired together. Extra magazines depends on where you play and how trigger happy you would be:

  • Fast play, Lots of shooting, 1h+ matches, get 1 or 2 extra Hi-Cap magazines (They contain more BB's (200+) and you have to wind them with the small rotor on the bottom of the magazine).

  • Slower play, Milsim-like (I wouldn't advise this as your first experience in airsoft but I'll add it anyways, get a bunch of Mid caps (70-180 BB's) and a speedloader to fill them up as they don't make sound they could be useful for more sneaky gameplay.

  • CQB, 20 min games, just use the Hi-Cap magazine you got with your gun, will be plenty of BB's for you to start with until you have chosen what you really want.

    If I'd be you, I'd just get the gun with a nunchuck battery (9.6V NimH or 7.4 Li-PO) (fits in the stock of the gun) and a decent smartcharger. Play some matches in your local fields (make sure you have some fields near you before you buy anything) and search for your favorite field and adapt your gear towards that.

    Accessories aren't a must have, but a nice grip (I prefer an angled one) could give you some good comfort. Also a simple sling will save you from dropping your gun by accident. A scope again depends on the environment you play in, if it's CQB get an open reflex sight it makes aiming so easy. If it's outdoor, get a red dot which could have magnification (prices go up very quickly!). Flashlights are useful but expensive, laser sights are forbidden in some countries like mine.

    But most importantly, get some good eye/face protection, some which have been repeatedly advised:


  • Dye i4 for full face protection (I have this one in particular and it never fogs on me, It's just great, just doesn't give you the realistic look some people are looking for. But it is great especially in CQB situations

  • Revision desert locust for eye protection, I heard these are great against fogging up, they will cost you big aswell though if I am not mistaken (correct me If I'm wrong) as these are military goggles.

  • A simple half-face mesh mask to go together with one of the 2 eye-protection suggestions:

    Don't go about and buy plate carriers / camo before you know what you actually want, this sport is a money drain, use your money whise is my last advise.
u/Duck-Guy · 3 pointsr/airsoft

If you’re in the states unissued/lightly used ESS googles can be bought off ebay for like 20 bucks or on amazon pyramex I forces are only 15. Neither have fogged on me. From the 2 I’d recommend the I forces over ESS goggles because the thinner low profile lets the cooperate with lower mask much easier.

You should be able to find some cheapies. I don't like spending too much on goggles, I seem to scratch them more than glasses. last pair cost $15. Just had another thought, you could try these:

These glasses on Amazon may help. Some people just get extremely tired after wearing them for some time. Just make sure not to take them off (close your eyes if you are changing your shirt) as that sorts of resets the amount of time it requires for you to fall asleep.

u/duffstoic · 2 pointsr/sex

For Seasonal Affectiveness Disorder specifically, get one of those blue lights and have her shine it in her eyes for an hour every morning. I have a Philips GoLite, costs about $125, makes a huge difference. Or you can go outside and get direct sunlight first thing in the morning.

Then get rid of blue light at night, either by wearing a pair of ugly orange glasses or replacing your bulbs to be more orange (blocking blue light) and putting your devices in the new "night shift" mode in iOS or using a program like flux.

Blue light in the morning makes you feel good, blue light at night ruins your sleep. Depressed people virtually always have sleep issues.

EDIT: also magnesium. Magnesium deficiency may play a role in depression, and supplemental magnesium improves sleep which can help with depression. I recommend magnesium glycinate.

u/Orghast · 2 pointsr/AskReddit

Science is here to save you.

There is a kind of receptor in your eye called "melanopsin," which synapses directly with the mood/sleep regulation center of the brain. [1]

This regulatory center controls the melatonin level in your bloodstream. When light hits these receptors, it suppresses melatonin and advances sleep phase (makes you go to bed later). [2]

The kicker: these receptors respond to blue light. If you can block the blue light, then you can preserve your endogenous melatonin level.

The solution: wear special glasses that block light up to the 500 nm range. I got mine for less than $10. [3]

In a pinch, you can simply avoid looking at the computer screen. This is one major reason why I think reading a book before bed works so well.

Why not just wear blue blockers? Uvex Skypers absorb 98% of blue light and you can get them for <$10 on Amazon.

I've been wearing them at night for about a year. I'm still nocturnal, but I believe the 98% claim, they definitely reduce eye strain (transcriptionist + student = LOTS of computer use), and they're comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time.

u/DudeWhoRejectsLabels · 2 pointsr/CRD

Do you use scototherapy (dark therapy)? It works much better than melatonin for me. I think if you can get your pineal to produce melatonin naturally, it will continue all night instead of ending in 30 minutes. It's also possible that the noradrenergics could be an enhancer to the dark therapy - noradrenaline stimulates melatonin production - so while on their own you feel more wakeful at night, noradrenergic+scototherapy could be more sleep-enhancing than scototherapy alone if you otherwise have trouble with noradrenaline systems (as is possible in MDD and ADHD). The cheapest way to try out scototherapy is uvex SCT-Orange.

u/monkeyhihi · 2 pointsr/getdisciplined

I struggled a lot with this too. I tried putting my cell phone far away from me when I went to sleep so I would have to get up to turn it off; I tried the alarm apps with the crazy captchas that made me do math before it would turn off (I would just sleepily wind up removing the battery, and eventually got good at drowsy math)... I even tried the crazy-loud alarm clocks made for deaf people..... Nothing worked.

I would up taking a shotgun approach to this as well.

I started off with some very cool looking blue-blocking glasses that I would religiously start wearing once it was sundown, and wouldn't take off until I went to bed. I would take some melatonin at the same time as well.

Now, the real pièce de résistance was a sunlamp--of which there are many kinds that I used alongside the Sleep as Android phone app. There's a specific captcha on there called "Let there be light" that forces you to turn on a lamp before the alarm will turn off. By adjusting the sensitivity I made it so that only the INCREDIBLY BRIGHT sun lamp would turn it off, which combined with the sun lamp finally did the trick. By the time the alarm had turned off, I really did start feeling invigorated by the bright light.

Don't feel like you need to jump in to the deep end and wake up at 6:30 right away. Set realistic goals, and once you establish a rhythm you can adjust times based on your schedule.

Best of luck, friendo!

  1. Essentially doing porn and "other things" uses a lot of dopamine similarly to doing drugs. You use a lot of dopamine while "doing it", and then your brain is filled with so much dopamine that it makes it hard to think and act normally. Do this on a weekly basis and you're programming your mind to depend on these dopamine bursts to function, and it will be hard to function when you're not "doing it." It's essentially an addiction even if doesn't feel like it and can be the cause of mental instability.

    This website can explain it better: Also search some TED talks about this if you're feeling lazy.

  2. I bought these orange glasses off of Amazon

    The reviews do a good explaining about the effects of blue light and mental state.

u/commercialprospects · 2 pointsr/insomnia

Stick to it totally, no cheats, no fudging. I did this and it completely transformed my sleep. I also keep the house as dark as I can in the evening and turn off the screens at least an hour before bed. Your natural melatonin is very light sensitive, especially to blue light, so limit your light exposure as much as you can. I wear these for good measure.

Keep your wake up time the same every day (no matter what!) and don’t try to get into bed until you are really sleepy. Don’t worry about how sleep deprived you will be. If you wake up at the same time, the deprivation will actually help you sleep better in the long run.

Btw, it took me at least two weeks to start to feel normal. There was a lot of two steps forward, one step back. Keep your sleep log and you’ll see that you really are improving, even when it doesn’t feel like it. Good luck!

u/psych0therapist · 2 pointsr/Nootropics

I agree that sleep is incredibly important, and using electronics before bed isn’t exactly conducive to good sleep. I’ve been using 100% blue light blocking glasses at night for a few years, and these really help (though be careful when buying because some don’t block all, but imply they do - these look gnarly but have been tested to block 100% of blue light).

This, however, isn’t a perfect solution because the content most of us read on our electronics is stimulating. Personally I’ve had better results by donning my glasses, putting my phone in airplane mode, and reading an ebook that doing the same but keeping signal on and browsing reddit/reading articles.

u/grandballoon · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

People’s experiences can obviously vary, but I was diagnosed as depressed which then switched to bipolar II after my first (and arguably only) hypomanic episode, so my experience might have some good lessons for your girlfriend.

  1. Find a good doctor you trust who works with your girlfriend and isn’t afraid to (carefully) experiment with her meds cocktail to get her to the place she needs to be. Medication with bipolar is hard. It might take a good while to figure out what keeps her in a good place, but please remember that it is possible. I couldn’t even tell you the names of most of the things we tried for me post-BP diagnosis if I tried. Your girlfriend may be luckier. Also, and this is just my two cents because it was my experience, but if your girlfriend’s bipolar tends toward the depressive, as many people’s does, SSRIs should not be out of the question. Obviously I am not a doctor, but I’m bipolar and have been on both lithium and SSRIs and it didn’t make me manic. It did, however, help me manage my depression. Some doctors worry about mania with SSRIs, but not all.

  2. Sleep hygiene is very important for managing bipolar. Get some blue light blocker glasses (I use these but there are less-dorky looking ones if that’s important to you) to wear for about an hour before bed. Consider a light therapy lamp for about 20 minutes in the morning to cement her circadian rhythms and potentially stave off depression. Go to bed and wake up at the same time as much as humanly possible. This is a big topic, and you can read about it plenty online. It helps a lot with preventing mania to get a solid 8 hours a night. I recommend prioritizing this.

  3. On a similar note, self care is a big part of keeping yourself steady. Read a book like the power of habit or atomic habits to put in place some small, everyday things she (or you both) can do to take care of herself. This also just makes your life better in general. Meditation is hugely helpful in all aspects of life and would be my number one recommendation. Exercise is also terrific. Generally stay away from drugs or excessive drinking, if that’s a thing for her.

  4. She really has to take her meds every day. For a long time I resented medication as something I HAD to take, to the point where I flat out stopped taking them at all for a while. That was a terrible idea. The better perspective is that this is something you’re lucky enough to have access to. Thank Christ I don’t live in the ‘60s when they would have just put me on Thorazine or locked me in an institution. Thank god I have access to modern MAOIs that don’t make you obese. Thank god I have pills I can take that virtually erase my manic paranoia. As far as the vast majority of bipolar people throughout human history go, you girlfriend and I are the lucky ones.

  5. For me, the first year after the diagnosis was the hardest, emotionally. Being bipolar was a really, really difficult thing for me to accept. She may have an easier time, but I’m given to understand that it can entail a lot of grieving for a while. That’s normal and necessary.

    If you want, DM me and I’ll give you my cell number. I’m happy to talk to you or your girlfriend about it at length. She should know that my medical history looks a lot like hers and it hasn’t stopped from me from living a fulfilling, stable life.
u/mermanicus · 2 pointsr/AlternativeHealth

I really like this sub, but sometimes it has some strange articles on it that I don't personally believe in (everyone's entitled to an opinion), which can also turn other people off to the idea behind it. Not all good alternative health options have studies to back them up, but its good to at least try and find some science to back up the claims.

Anyways, I worked in Ophthalmology for a few years and found that reducing blue light at night is a great way to aid in better sleep (and has other positive effects). This is especially important for ages 0-20.

There is a relatively easy way to lessen the effects. Get glasses lenses that block blue light (they look kind of orange) which is the most effective (amazon has cheap options Another option which is less effective is to download an app that lowers the amount of blue light given off from screens (I think its called twilight for android, f.lux for windows, not sure about ios). This should be used about 2 or more hours before bed.

Another tip:
For eye fatigue (which is good for people on the computer all day as well as using handheld devices): the 20/20/20 method: every 20 minutes look 20 feet away for 20 seconds or blinks to let your eyes relax.

One thing that helps me when it comes to going to bed early is these orange glasses that block the kind of light from the TV and computer that can keep you awake. They look dumb as hell but they cost less than ten bucks and really help me wind down/get sleepy and fall asleep faster once I'm actually in bed if I put them on about 2 hours before I want to go to sleep

u/kronos299 · 2 pointsr/LifeProTips
  1. Establish light cues — use blue-blocking glasses (similar to flux) in the evening and get blue (or bright white) light exposure in the morning
  2. Iso-lateral exercises (stand on each foot bent at the knee until exhaustion or weight training on one side then the other). When people say exercise helps, it is usually this effect.
  3. Probably the hardest but still important: when adopting a sleep schedule, follow it every day, not just every weekday. Weekends are cultural, not biological. Staying up on Friday or Saturday will mess with your sleep schedule.

OP is asking about filters that absorb blue light.


u/IngratiatingGoblins · 2 pointsr/ADHD

Two big things for me are going to sleep / waking up at the same time every day, and reducing blue light at night. First one is self explanatory.

For the second one, it's very important and no one realizes it. Blue wavelengths of light, like from your TV, phone, and computer, WILL make you less tired at night, and keep you up hours later than you normally would.

To fix this, install Flux ( on the computer, and set it to the strongest setting at night. You will get used to it and even really prefer it at night. I'd also recommend blue blocker glasses:

They look goofy but will help when watching TV, and even cut out blue wavelengths from regular lights. I put them on soon after sunset. I bet if you start doing those things, you'll have less trouble sleeping.

u/kris33 · 2 pointsr/Nootropics

Wow, I'm amazed you guys haven't heard about the massive importance of lights on your energy level. I'd actually rate is as way more important than any kind of supplement/nootropic.

Light in the blue spectrum boosts the production of seretonin, giving you great, pure and clean energy. I often go from being grumpy, borderline depressed in the early morning to downright joyful after using my lamp for around 30 minutes.

The lamp I have is a Philips goLITE BLU. It's downright awesome. It's small, effective, easy to use (touchscreen) and portable. Some may think it's expensive, but it's actually not considering how big an impact it'll have on your life and for how many years it'll last you.

While blue light is great during the day it's harmful in the evening, since it prevents you from producing melatonin (the sleep hormone), both reducing your tiredness/ease of falling asleep and your sleep quality when you eventually do. To combat that I use glasses that filters out the whole blue spectrum, Uvex S1993X - just $8. It's much more effective than solutions like F.lux (it covers everything, not just your computer screen - and Flux can't stop all the blue light from the screen), and much easier to use too.

u/mmmm_frietjes · 2 pointsr/kindle

Thanks! According to what you say & what I've read on amazon's forum, it shouldn't be a problem on lowest setting.

I used to wear but they don't fit on my new glasses. I didn't know there were special lens coatings. I'll look into it. Again thanks. That asshole /u/kangthrutime kept insulting me about this, it's nice to read a normal response.

u/ColonelBuster · 2 pointsr/YouShouldKnow

Also consider using blue light blocking glasses for watching tv or any other screen based activity before bed.

u/thegrumpyhypnotist · 2 pointsr/Nootropics

the problem is that melatonin production is disrupted not just during specific sleep-time, but throughout the evening, when it would naturally get darker over time.

it's good advice to make sure that all lights are blocked while sleeping (including blinking lights from electronic devices, cable boxes, etc); however, it's kind of impractical tip to suggest that people should avoid all sources of light after sundown. flux is a good technological work-around to an unavoidable technological "problem".

edit: these glasses do a great job of blocking all blue-light from monitors, phones, TVs, etc:

u/MiserableFungi · 2 pointsr/GetStudying

Do what you can to sync yourself physically to a more normal schedule. Eat your meals consistently at regular times, for example. I've also been advised to modulate my exposure to light intensity when it gets late. One of my teachers suggested these. Blocking blue light from your eyes is supposed to activate your natural circadian rhythm into preparing you for late night rest. I've had this particular pair for a few days. Still getting used to them, and can't say for certain if they're effective or not. It may very well end up being YMMV.

u/thefishinthetank · 2 pointsr/LucidDreaming

It sounds like your sleep is really not good. The fact that you are going to bed late at night is likely part of the problem. If you spend this time staring at a screen or in a lit room your melatonin production will be suppressed.

You can try orange glasses. Put them on a few hours before your bedtime. They block blue light, which inhibits melatonin production. If you can get your pineal gland working you will have a better natural supply of melatonin and DMT. Also try to get sunlight while the day is on. Here is a link to the glasses I use. Good luck!

u/Zenmaster13 · 2 pointsr/airsoft

I've just bought a set of these. Assuming you're in the UK, they're perfectly fine for Airsoft. Also as a glasses wearer, they fit right over perfectly.

I found with the desert locust's that the rubber padding on the back presses against the sides of my glasses, needing me to make a ~5mm cutout for them to then provide some form of face seal, whereas these were surprisingly pleasant to put on.

u/Eisenstein · 2 pointsr/AskElectronics

You probably want a bench PSU as well: Korad 3005D

You need safety gear too!

u/Jenn_A · 2 pointsr/ladycyclists

I tried ski goggles but the fogging up and loss of peripheral vision just sucked too much. I use anti-fog safety glasses now not perfect but better for me.

Eye pro, you need it

u/aznsk8s87 · 2 pointsr/guns

I'm just going to use this space to write a potential post and then copypasta it to the mods, see if they wanna use it.

Hello! This is sk8s's guide to the holidays!

You're probably here looking for gift ideas for the gun enthusiast in your life. Now, each individual person is unique and preferences, but here's a little launching pad to get you started.

Here is a list of stocking stuffers for the shooting enthusiast in your life, in no particular order.

  • Ammo - Can't shoot a gun if you don't have ammo for it. Know what caliber (size) of ammo to get. If it's a handgun or a rifle, most guns won't be terribly picky about what brand it is. Depending on the caliber, the prices can vary greatly. A box of practice 9mm (50 rounds) will be in the $10-15 range, whereas a box of practice .45 ACP (50 rounds) will cost about $20-$25. Whether it's bulk practice ammo or a box of match grade ammo, it will be enjoyed immensely.

  • Eye and ear protection - I have a pair of these in my bag as a loaner pair (and I use them frequently if I forget my nice pair). Lucky Gunner has a fairly comprehensive guide for eyepro. As for hearing protection, Gunnit recommends the Howard Leight Impact Sport electronic earmuffs. I have them, I love them. A pack of regular foam earplugs is great as well for doubling up at an indoor range.

  • Targets - Gotta have something to shoot at. A pack of paper targets makes a great, cheap stocking stuffer. I like the Shoot-n-see targets for when I'm shooting with friends, and these for when I'm trying to shoot the best I can. However, there can be something quite satisfying about hearing the ring of a bullet hitting steel. If the person has a .22LR, this is an incredibly fun target. My buddy and I have shot well over 2000 rounds at his, and it's just as fun every time. For a centerfire handgun or rifle, check out MOA targets for some great steel targets.

  • Range bag - gotta take all the crap to the range in style! The most recommended range bag here is the Midway USA compact competition range bag. My favorite bag that I've seen (and will probably buy soon) is the GPS Range Bag, but that's because I'm anal about organizing my crap.

  • Range membership - Range fees can be very expensive. A range pass or membership allows the shooter in your life to go whenever they want!

  • Concealed weapons permit class - Has someone in your life been in a situation where they wished they had a gun to protect them? Is someone looking to have gun to prevent that situation from happening? Pay for them to go get their concealed weapons permit. They may or may not carry, but if the state allows it, it is never a bad idea to have such a permit. You know, just in case.

    Now, these are all just some generic questions and are not intended to be a one-size-fits-all solution (though I'm of the opinion that nobody will turn down ammo). Feel free to comment if you have any questions and we can help you out! Happy holidays!
u/sebalinsky · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon


When I was 7 or 8 about (I can't really remember), I would go over to my friends house and he would be playing GTA III. At the time, my parents wouldn't let me play video games at all so it was a big treat to just get to watch him play. He was a bit of a game hog but the times he let me play it was awesome. My favorite part was just driving around.

Here is something I would like from Amazon

u/Abstract_Logic · 2 pointsr/AdviceAnimals

You can get them HERE Looks like you just have to remove the rubber pice on the nose to expose the metal. or here and THIS is the searched used if you dont like either of thoes.

u/tospiteyourface · 2 pointsr/beards

ah, nice to meet you. here's hoping we never have to take a job that requires respirators.

those in particular were thrown in when i picked up my oxyfuel rig at the local welding supply shop. you can find them damn near anywhere that carries welding supplies, though. or just order from amazon, because amazon has everything. shade five is the most common since that's typically what you'll want for cutting applications, though i've seen lenses up to shade ten before - for carbon arc or plasma cutting, i guess?

i have mixed feelings about the things from a practical perspective, and in my experience i've found that they're very situational. generally speaking, i only use them for working in the field when i don't have a better option. in this instance, i was crawling around inside the engine compartment of a crane to disassemble the cowling and drum cover; very hot, cramped, and you've a metric shitload of hot metal flying all over the place. the fact that these goggles have no cracks for errant slag to discover and damn sure aren't going to be slipping off after three hours of sweating my way around crane guts meant that i could focus on what i needed to be doing without too much worry. but then you look at a shop setting and it's an entirely different story; given the amount of pedestrian traffic you have to be aware of and the relatively stable environment, the lack of peripheral vision and even a marginal amount of face protection are pretty solid nails in the coffin for me. they're clunky and restrictive enough that i'd rather throw on a tinted shield real quick and be done with the business.

on the other hand, the cool factor is hard to argue against.

u/terram_alwathani · 2 pointsr/dune

Well, let's start from the top and work our way down

"Tactical" shemagh

Dune sclera lenses

3M 6200 half mask

Torch goggles

3 yards of fabric for the cloak

Tunic that I got from a ren faire years ago

550 cord

Avatar knife plus a coat of white paint

Thai fisherman pants

And the base layer, an open face Zentai suit

Plus my old desert combat boots. I also had a nose tube that I made with a bread bag clip, electrical tape, and 550 cord, which is obviously not shown here and could definitely be made much better with a proper septum clip.

Edit: And a handful of random washers as water rings.

u/sneakydevi · 2 pointsr/lifehacks

/u/gravityalwayswins put the basics out there clearly so I won't repeat it, but I thought I would add a couple of things.

Light from devices and light bulbs can be a problem so either don't use them at night, replace them with things that don't use blue light, OR the simplest and what I do - use blue blocking glasses like these.

And the thing that has turned the tide for me? Magnesium. It has to be the right one though. I have been taking magnesium citrate for over a year and it didn't help much. I recently started taking magnesium threonate before bed and it has made a marked difference.

u/TurnABlindEar · 2 pointsr/Nootropics

Orange (or blue light blocking) glasses.

Sleep deprivation can improve mood but if it becomes hypomania you get some of the cognitive issues anyone would get. People often become more functional and focused but it can be hard to direct that focus. It might be working extra hard at work or school but is (more?) likely to be skipping work to re-plumb your kitchen or spending way too much money shopping. Pulled away from that special hypomanic project it looks more typical. You are likely to become more distractable, impulsive and irritable which is pretty typical of not sleeping enough.

u/thundahstruck · 2 pointsr/sleep

You want blue-blocking glasses, which are believed to help trigger melatonin production. I own the linked pair and put them on about an hour before bed, and I do think they help.

u/badgerwenthome · 2 pointsr/AskAcademia

Basic workflow: Find something to read, save it to Diigo or Zotero, autosync with Google Drive, mark it up in Xodo on tablet PC or smartphone (with another autosync), write about it using Sublime or Atom. If nighttime approaches, use blue-blocker glasses + F.lux.





I love the Surface Pro series for academic work. Use it as a laptop when producing, then lean back and use it as a tablet with a great pen when reading. The tools I use below also integrate with my phone automatically, so I have a three-part solution in two devices.


File mgmt:

I used to use Mendeley, but recently switched to Zotero for a few reasons:

- Open-source and highly portable (both the program and your bibliography/PDF library)

- Zotfile (makes it easy to save annotations, also makes file management with your favorite cloud provider a breeze)

- SciHub integration with plugin (shhhhhhhh.... but srsly it's amazing)

- However, Zotero does not have a good phone solution. If you use Google Drive (or w/e) and open your files in Xodo on your phone, linked to G Drive, the lack of Zotero phone app doesn't get in the way.

Diigo is also nice for web-first content (e.g. NYT articles, blog posts, etc.), and is available on phone/tablet/desktop. The free account does plenty.


PDF reading/annotating/highlighting:

Xodo is my favorite software for reading and marking up PDFs, with the Surface Pen or on my phone. It's fast, free, and full-featured, and works across devices. (SumatraPDF, my old favorite, does not support annotation but is still great when speed is the primary concern, e.g. when ctrl-F-ing through huge PDF textbooks)



OneNote has its perks and many adherents, might be worth a try, but the Zotero/Xodo combo linked through G Drive keeps my stuff in one place.

For blue-blocking, these glasses are dorky but dirt cheap and get the job done. This plus F.lux makes late-night reading sessions much easier on the little bit of subsequent sleep you might get.

Also, consider writing in an application like SublimeText or Atom, which are designed for programmers but are very easy to use, and offer much better color schemes than Word (e.g. dark backgrounds, text in whatever colors you fancy). Sublime is crazy fast, and Atom is prettier with more plugins but slow, so I find myself using Sublime for quick notes and Atom for longer sessions or touching up. I save everything in markdown files, so transferring from one app to the other, or to the web (or a publication) is easy.

u/green_which · 2 pointsr/migraine

If you want to try true blue blocking on the cheap, get a pair of these:

You can tell how much of the blue light is blocked by comparing these two spectra:

If the spectra look identical, then all blue light has been removed (this is what you see with the UVEX).

u/double-el · 2 pointsr/Paleo

Almonds specifically cause me acne. I know a lot of others that cant have nuts in general because it breaks them out. I would suggest eliminating nuts for a month and see if that helps. If not it could be eggs or night shades like /u/orangetiem suggested.

Have you ever heard of orange tinted glasses at night to block the blue light? Blue light can keep your body from producing meletonin. I used to have restless sleep but I heard about these glasses from some paleo blogger (cant remember who) and i've never gone back. I wear them 2 hours before bed and I look like a dork but I sleep through the night. They're pretty cheap and they're worth a shot.

u/accidental_warrior · 2 pointsr/Reformed

Set a time limit for yourself and then go to bed without any devices. I had to start leaving my phone downstairs because otherwise I'd browse the net and wreck my sleep. If you can't set a time limit, then don't start and just go to the bedroom and read.

If you must watch, do so with orange glasses, so you can block blue light from reaching your eyes. Your brain will interpret the blue light as sunlight and suppress melatonin secretion.

You'll also look like a dope while wearing those, which may help you indulge for a shorter period of time. :-)

u/kimikat · 2 pointsr/Supplements

I just found these which seem to be the fit-over your own version of the ones Hermy (and everyone else on the internet!) use. I even found the spectral analysis to confirm they block 98% of blue light. I can't wait for them to arrive! If they work well, I'll look into RX options.

Uvex Stealth OTG Safety Goggles with Anti-Fog/Anti-Scratch Coating (S3970DF ) - 19369, Navy Body, Clear Lens

Just a random one I found. As long as they are goggles that wrap around and completely shield your eyes from all angles (glasses are insufficient), you’ll be fine

u/YOJaden · 2 pointsr/chemistry

I experienced the same issue with my school's lackluster goggles. I purchased these

They fit my school's safety requirements for splash and impact and do not fog. They also fit well over glasses. Good luck!

u/sammiesfriend · 2 pointsr/chemistry

Uvex Stealth OTG Safety Goggles with Anti-Fog/Anti-Scratch Coating (S3970DF ) - 19369, Navy Body, Clear Lens
I have these, hard to fit the big framed glasses I have , so I wear my smaller frames. Indents form a bit on my cheeks and forehead but good ventilation if your goggles get fogged up.

u/Twisky · 2 pointsr/BuyItForLife

I don't own these, but would you be able to have goggles instead?

u/maxg201 · 2 pointsr/airsoft

Yeah I did have some problems with them fogging up but I switched over to these over the weekend and haven't had anything happen yet

u/LadyPotatas · 2 pointsr/airsoft

Bolle Tracker They're pretty good for cheap goggles/ glasses, have very little fogging and come with an elastic strap, plus they're full seal when used with the strap. They also only cost about £13

EDIT: Found the Bolle Trackers on amazon for £6.65

u/stevewmn · 2 pointsr/airsoft

Pyramex Safety Goggles. Excellent fog resistance, impact rated, so cheap you can throw them away if they get a little scratch.

u/Jayvee5000 · 2 pointsr/airsoft

I wonder why nobody knows about these (probably because vtac took em and slapped their name on it)

Pyramex V2G

Pyramex I-Force

Pyramex Highlander

I own these, highlanders, and I-forces. None of them fog, ever. If I had a million dollars for every time these fogged on me, I'd still be broke as fuck.

Don't waste your money on ESS's and Revisions. The prices on these bad boys are unbeatable.

u/HoneybadgerOG1337 · 2 pointsr/airsoft
u/Mcfly56 · 2 pointsr/airsoft

With the battery and charger you have on there they don't match. you can't use a nimh charger on a lipo you'll blow it up.

If you're going to use a lipo battery I use this charger

also with that battery it will only work if your gun is front wired (the plug for the battery is in your handguard) if its rear wired it wont work because you need the battery in the buffer tube.

as far as the gun sack you can pick up a hard rifle case at walmart for under 25$ and it will keep your rifle safe and you can lock it with padlocks if you'd like

I also really wouldn't recommend a paintball mask either cause they usually fog unless you get a really nice one like a dye i4/i5. they are also almost impossible to aim down sights with. I use arena flak jaks as I just pop out the vents and they never fog and you can get cheap replacement lens on ebay

others recommend the pyramix goggles as they are lower profile but I just find it easy for them to move off my eyes by just moving facial muscles

with those if you want lower face protection most people recommend the one tigris as it makes it easy to aim down your sights

bamf mags I've heard many different things on them so i guess it just depends on your gun if they fit they will be good if not kwa k120s, g&p skullfrog, and pts epm are all good mid caps and those go in order from least to most expensive

u/Jomaan · 2 pointsr/airsoft

Sounds like they might be doing it for insurance and liability reasons but that's a bit backwards as full mesh face protection isn't the safest thing around. Definitely wear a set of properly rated full seal goggles underneath it, such as the Pyramex iForce goggles.

u/DangitDave · 2 pointsr/airsoft

Spare Goggles

I like this brand to keep as a loaner. I keep 2 spares in the duffel in case mine goes down or if the a player forgets his/hers. Inexpensive, dual pane + anti-fog only kills out if you are pouring sweat, and fits asian faces very well.

Handheld Fans
Great for warm or humid days and you can't take off your gear to cool down. I keep a G&P Distress marker fan on me to cool down between rounds.

Electrolyte Gel Packs
Great for keeping cramping and general dehydration down. Gatorade works too, but I keep these in handy for people who only drink water all day and begin to look flushed.

u/VaporTrail_000 · 2 pointsr/airsoft

Yeah, low income can be a bear... but since you don't seem to be allergic to work, there are possibilities, even for the "too young" to work. Traditional stuff like mowing neighborhood lawns, less-so like dog-walking... or whatever.

Definitely rent first. Getting in to play the game will help you to figure out what role(s) you want to play when you do start buying gear and allowing you to focus on gear that lets you, as well as helps you, do what you enjoy.

Budget for your rental trips. Locally for me, a day's airsoft as a minimum rental is about $60US. That's $30 field fee, and $30 rental (covering mask/goggle, AEG, battery, and a single hi-cap mag. Additional mags and a chest rig can be rented for an additional $15, but usually, that's unnecessary. BBs are extra, ~$22 for 2700 rounds, (I use .32s and .20s are going to be cheaper) but you can save the ones in the bottle you don't use and use them on subsequent trips. All told, you're looking at about $70 per person, per trip. Once a month is probably a good rate.

Start saving now for gear if you can, don't burn gear money on rental fees if you can help it. Every dollar invested in your starter gear is going to (usually) improve the performance and longevity, especially in a gun, which will probably (and should) be your greatest single startup expense.

There are low-cost options for basic gear.
A set of Pyramex I-force goggles and a One Tigris foldable mask (or similar) can be had (collectively) for less than $50.
Condor makes some (at least in my limited experience) cheap but reasonably good quality gear.

My current cheap gear setup (less than $100US here, without shipping):
Pyramex I-Force
NO B Tactical Folding Mask w/ Ear protection (really a One Tigris knockoff, but it works)
Condor Modular Chest Panel
Condor Triple M4 MOLLE mag pouch

This setup, over street clothes, is functional and cheap, and I have personally had no major issuses with it. Minor issues include some condensation with the goggles (more "why am I staring through a fishbowl" water than fogging really, and that after several hours of play), and the mask straps loosening on occasion.

Changes I would have made looking back:
- Color choices on the mask, panel, and pouch. The olive drab I went with on the panel and pouch didn't match the rest of my eventual gear setup (black), which started with the black mask. Didn't plan that well enough. I would stick with a color (probably olive drab for cheap or Multicam for more expensive) if I did it over again.
- Should have gone with a set of three single pouches, rather than the triple. The ~50% (or about $10) increase in price would have been worth the increase in loadout flexibility. I seldom find myself needing six spare mags.

High dollar things you are going to want to budget for (at least eventually) when you buy gear:
- Boots. Regular street shoes are ok, especially indoors, but you really want to have a set of high-quality boots to play in, especially outdoor fields with broken terrain and obstacles. The ankle support and all-around toughness of a good set of boots are going to be worth the expense. Add to that the ability to switch out of your boots for the ride/drive home is great, especially playing outdoor fields where you might get rained on or have to wade through a building ( >1 inch deep puddles inside buildings, ISYN), and you'll feel a lot more comfortable doing so if you know you won't have to wear wet footgear home.
- Defogging system. I bought an ExFog system recently and ran it the first time last weekend (same time as the rain and indoor puddles) and I'm over the moon. Cleared up the condensation issues with the goggles I was having completely. I can't recommend this enough. But at >$75, it is definitely in the "luxury" category, so buy it when you can afford it, but consider it as soon as you can.

Something you might be able to get cheap:
BDUs/Combat Uniform. Old military combat uniforms and such can be found occasionally at thrift stores or places like the Salvation Army. Actual military uniforms are going to hold up great (even if they're not in perfect condition when you get them) and they are already camo. Much cheaper than buying them new, or buying civilian equivalents.

u/eyedwords · 2 pointsr/airsoft

highly recommend for these $15 goggles. amazon link

I have run them two days so far, and am in love with them. They are ANSI Z87+, comfy, and fit under my hat. ymmv with the anti-fog but i treat the lenses before i play and so far haven't been fogged out of a game.

first day with the new goggles I took a bb to the right lens from a player with a notoriously hot HPA set up from only about 25 feet and the lens was totally unmarked. it splashed sweat and dial soap off the lens into my eye which made it look like i had pinkeye, but that's a personal problem.

to be fair, I am one of the sweatiest people on the internet so my issues with fogging and sweat may not be relatable.

I was previously running some smith optics boogie goggles that looked very cool but would fog so bad I had to leave the field mid game more than once and those damn things were about $50. now i feel like i found my goggles.

lastly, just buy smaller gloves? is that an insensitive suggestion? i wear gloves in size small if that makes you feel better.

u/Ferrard · 2 pointsr/airsoft

Materials aren't impact rated, eyepro is because part of impact testing is that it has to remain in place on your head, but that's besides the point. To put it very simply:

$15 for 16-Joules of impact protection backed by MIL-PRF-32432 impact standards, ANSI Z87.1 high impact standards, and Pyramex, an industry leader in PPE.

Vs. hoping that you selected a strong enough material, hoping that you built your homebrew mask correctly, and hoping that the field allows your homebrew mask (which any field worth their salt will not), backed by your personal, non-expert confidence in your own work.

You can't replace your eyes. Buy the freakin' eyepro.

The "Indoor/Outdoor Mirror" version is polarized.

Pyramex I-Force Sporty Dual Pane Anti-Fog Goggle, Indoor/Outdoor Mirror Anti-Fog Lens

u/LiveAtThFillmoreEast · 2 pointsr/airsoft

No offense, but if a BB shatters on the mesh I think it'd go straight through your glasses. Things like the PYRAMEX I FORCES (WITH THE STRAP) are safe alternatives.

Also, ANSI Z87.1 isn't enough, you want AT LEAST ANSI Z87.1+ (yes, the plus makes a difference). There's some debate on whether even that's acceptable, but both the goggles I listed WAY exceed that.

Remember, it really doesn't matter what you look like if you lose an eye. For 15 USD you can completely avoid it, why even take this risk? If you don't like the I Forces I can link you others in different styles.

u/lvictory23 · 2 pointsr/BurningMan

PSA: Be VERY careful with glasses from Amazon.

I ordered some plastic glasses from China and they did not come with the proper ISO certificate, and the seller would not reply to a request for one.

Check out the four brands NASA recommends, and buy one of those from Amazon. I returned my plastic glasses and bought a 10-pack of cardboard glasses for $18 manufactured in the US, with an ISO certificate.

These are NASA-approved, ISO certified, Prime-eligible, and made in the USA:

There are others, too, these are just what I purchased.

u/kevin2357 · 2 pointsr/solareclipse

If you're really worried about it, note that there are 4 manufacturers whose products and manufacturing process have gone through the official ISO testing and certification for safe solar viewing: Rainbow Symphony, American Paper Optics, Thousand Oaks Optical, and TSE 17 (more info at )

I got my eclipse glasses, and my camera solar filter, from Thousand Oaks. Good company, been in the business a long time, has had previous large-scale contracts for their solar filters with NASA, Discovery Channel, Nat Geo, etc.

There are probably other manufacturers that build perfectly safe solar filters but haven't put in the time to get officially ISO certified. I'd expect that most eclipse glasses on Amazon are probably just fine. But if you're worried at all about it, go with one of the previously mentioned 4.

As an aside, is that $9.99 for a single pair? You can get packs of 5 or 10 for about that much from other manufacturers. American paper optics has a 10 pack here for $14. Thousand Oaks has a 5 pack here for $12.

I bought this 10pk of cheap eclipse glasses. Hope we don't go blind.

u/Needsglasses2017 · 2 pointsr/cedarrapids

I'm also in the area and need glasses. It appears only the packs aren't sold out if you don't want to break the bank. If there is enough interest maybe I could buy this pack of 10 and then we could all split the cost for whoever is still looking?

Doing a little more research on actual certified vendors to see if that link is legit, but the offer would remain once we found a legit seller on amazon.

Bought these over-glasses: NoCry Over-Glasses Safety Glasses - with Clear Anti-Scratch Wraparound Lenses, Adjustable Arms, Side Shields, UV400 Protection, ANSI Z87 & OSHA Certified

Wear over my standard size bifocals for shooting. Works great. Case good too.

u/Wicksteed · 1 pointr/Nootropics

I tried these blue-blocking glasses

...and strongly recommend them. I don't normally notice a big effect from melatonin pills but from these very dark, filtered glasses I notice I get drowsy at the right time, when I put them on 2-3 hours before bed. I combine it with flux, which I don't think does a thorough enough job.

And if they don't work for you, they are so strongly and weirdly filtered that it makes you feel like you're on a different planet when you put them on and look around when you're outdoors especially in a natural area. Also makes it feel like you're in a typical dream/memory sequence in a movie. I'm not exaggerating, they're not like regular tinted sunglasses. They're very weird, at least for me.

There is all sorts of sources of blue light besides computer screens. These are some great for blocking said light. And thus your melatonin level will be less effected at night time.

u/CovertDiplomat · 1 pointr/selfhelp

Firstly and most importantly, you need to PRIORITIZE sleep as something of value in your life. I often have trouble waking in the morning, and this is almost completely eradicated when I consciously prioritize sleep. It's not about a "hack" to waking up. It's not about a fancy alarm clock. It's about getting good, healthy, regular sleep.

  1. Go to bed at the same time every night.
  2. No video games/reddit/movies before bedtime.
  3. Wear these an hour before you plan to go to bed. They'll block out blue light and signal your body to release sleep inducing melatonin.
  4. Develop a morning routine, it will be easier to automate waking up if its part of a larger routine.
u/baylenmiller · 1 pointr/sleep

Sleep in a cold environment that's as dark as possible (blackout curtains or sleep mask). Ear plugs work wonders. The less light after dark the better. Use [blue blocking lenses](Uvex Skyper Blue Light Blocking Computer Glasses with SCT-Orange Lens after dark. Episodic unwind is a great way to ease your mind for bed (Watch a Netflix series or read fiction). Don't eat or drink near bedtime.

Depends on your sensitivity. Some people can live in a moldy environment with no apparent problem (though I've read it increases cancer risk); some get very sick; others: somewhere inbetween.

The insidious problem is the mycotoxins mold gives off. My understanding is that dead mold continues to be toxic.

Since you can't sleep, how about listening to some podcasts?

  • Heal From Mold is good for mold. Ep. 3 discusses mold assessment and remediation.
  • Not Just Paleo Podcast covers a broad range of health topics. Functional medicine in general is good for tackling mild / chronic health problems.

    Another possibility that just came to mind is activities; do you do anything different at home? Do you use LED lights in the evening? Or use screens more? Might be worth buying some blue blocking glasses.

You can try wearing blue light blocking lenses to see if there's a connection. I've used these in the past:

Blue Light Blocking Glasses

u/Classical_Liberale · 1 pointr/TheRedPill


Also get for your laptop and iphone. Get something similar (such as Twilight) for Android.

Get the inexpensive and wear it after the sun sets in your place (Don't use while driving).

Those should effectively stop blue light disturbance to your circadian rhythm. Also take some nice magnesium supplement as a relaxing agent for better sleep.

u/sayitaintsoap · 1 pointr/Nootropics

Use a blue light filter app on your phone/computer screens during the night time. Or wear glasses that block blue light like these:

u/Liedertafel · 1 pointr/Nootropics

This is a stupid question that I don't think deserves its own post. I bought a pair of blue light blocking glasses from Amazon. These ones good reviews and come up first.

I can still see blue. I thought blue was meant to appear as black. Does that mean they're not working?

u/foomy45 · 1 pointr/leaves

Same happened to me for weeks. Workout like crazy or do lotsa cardio to get yourself physically exhausted. Get blue light filtering glasses and put em on soon as the sun goes down, only take em off right b4 bed Melatonin supplements never worked for me long term. Chamomile tea helps a lil. Take naps anytime you feel even a little tired, it's better than nothing. An orgasm before bed never hurt anyone (helps a bit more for men I believe)

u/gonnalearnmesomethin · 1 pointr/ADHD

I guess it could cause your cells to die off faster.... I think we just do not know as much about the body as we think we do. Seems like it just boils down to any thing over moderation is bad for you.... food.. coffee... water... etc.

I personally think the invention of agriculture, and the move from hunter gather tribes to more complex civilizations, has just started humans in a slow decline since we changed from that life style to quickly to properly evolve.

Use to think it was mainly the diet change (yeah paleo diet changed my life completely but thats another story ha) but then this documentry had to come and blow my mind about a month ago. (TL;DR: all the artificial blue light and prolonged nights are stongly contributing to the rise in western diseases (cancer, diabetes, and so forth)) Been rocking a pair of blue light blocking sun glasses (Consumer Reports Winner) 2 hours before i want to go to bed and have noticed I get to sleep alot quicker. (side note, I have found reading a good fiction book right before I go to bed (20 to 30 mins) helps shut off my brain for sleep)

Sorry I dumped all that on you.... Just found all that interesting... ha

Ps. I love his out there rants... makes you open your mind up sometimes...

u/coach_cartierTV · 1 pointr/Twitch

Yo! Honestly I have the same problem and have always had issues sleeping. Lots of things you can do to help sleep.

  1. in order to reduce the blue light messing with melatonin production wear blue light blocking glasses. These are incredible for the price.

  2. take magnesium citrate, it's a great form of magnesium that will help with serotonin and melatonin production along with hundreds of other processes in your body

  3. last is L-theanine. another supplement I know. but it'll help you feel relaxed without sleepy but it can help you counteract all the bright lights you constantly are exposed to while streaming

    Hopefully this helps somewhat. Definitely worth the $8 investment for the glasses, the others are if great if you don't mind supplements.

u/MrJohnFawkes · 1 pointr/Nootropics

I see that yellow doesn't work from that study, but I don't see that they tested orange. I'm using these:

The community Q&A on there says they block blue light, and I can verify it- blue lights such as the one on my fan actually look green with these things on. Amber might be a little better, or maybe this color is actually pretty close to amber and I just have trouble telling the two apart. Do you have a different brand you've used?

u/frozensunshine · 1 pointr/Gifts

You could get him a FitBit One (that's what I got my father, also 60 this year) or any such wearable health tracker. It'll encourage him to stay active. If he already has an iPhone or some product that can be synced with the device, it'll be even better! My father is obsessed with his FitBit, and is daily walking 10,000+ steps. It's amazing.

You could also get him a nice bluetooth portable loudspeaker that he could use to listen to music while fishing. Never gone fishing myself, so I'm not sure if that's a thing, but I feel it might get boring sitting there for hours waiting for fish to bite.

Last idea- I read in bed too, and recently discovered this amazing pair of goggles that keeps the blue light out of my eyes so that my circadian rhythm is not disturbed. Check it out, it could be a good gift.

u/liftruneat · 1 pointr/bodybuilding

If you're having trouble falling asleep then you should check out these. They block blue light from all the technology we have to increase melatonin production and develop a normal circadian rhythm. I wasn't able to fall asleep for like 2 hours usually, then I started putting these on about 2 hours before going to bed and I fall asleep in 10 minutes tops. Might look weird but they are so worth it.

u/lazydazfraz · 1 pointr/Health

yeah that's why glasses are the best option. I've tried both and while the programs that reduce blue light make a noticeable difference, the glasses are still superior (when I first started using the glasses I couldn't believe how I just couldn't keep my eyes open after a period of time). Especially because the lenses block out other blue light like from the TV and ambient lights. The glasses I bought cost around $15 dollars USD online (meant to be safety glasses)

Not fashionable, functional and inexpensive

u/IUseRhetoric · 1 pointr/AskProgramming

I'm not talking about gamer glasses. I'm talking about blue filter glasses. You can't tell me that $11 is expensive. Plus these can be used not only to filter blue light from screens, but also outdoor blue light.

u/gravityraster · 1 pointr/sleep

I got these ones from Amazon. They are dorky af, but I wanted glasses that I would be sure blocked all the blue light and didn’t let any in through the sides. Now that I know they work in principle, I will take my time to find another stylish pair that I can wear outside the house.

Uvex Skyper Blue Light Blocking...

u/FRIENDSHIP_MASTER · 1 pointr/Advice

Wear [these]
( a few hours before bedtime. Blue light entering the eyes inhibits melatonin production which interferes with sleep. Also, stop taking sleep aids, as you will need larger and larger doses over time, which is NOT a solution. I took large doses of Benadryl for several years and have permanent cognitive impairments as a result.

This book is also pretty helpful in dealing with anxiety.

u/benprowde · 1 pointr/LucidDreaming

While night shift mode does help (and f.lux for computers), it doesn't block a lot of the blue spectrum light that is emitted from your screen. This spectrum will still harm your melatonin production. However, you can trick your mitochondria into thinking it's still nighttime by wearing blue blocking glasses. You can get some really cheap ones for $9 on Amazon. It will make you look pretty stupid but you're in bed anyways so who cares.

u/Volsunga · 1 pointr/neoliberal

Actual advice: this can be fixed by fixing your sleep. You can do this by avoiding caffeine after 5PM and avoiding blue and white light after sunset (use f.lux, rgb lightbulbs that switch to warmer colors after dusk, or something like this if the others are not an option).

u/nick_gibb · 1 pointr/weightroom

Have you tried dimming the lights (including not using electronics, as you noted) and wearing these orange glasses?

Works wonders for me.

Carb backloading is also not a bad suggestion. YMMV.

u/nicLlaus · 1 pointr/askscience

> BTW there's some evidence that other parts of the body may be directly sensitive to light - ie, the skin and not just the eyes - but the eyes are most important.

At night I wear these glasses to shield the blue light when using my computer.

When it's convenient and when I remember, I'll wear a sweater at night just to cover as much skin as possible. Sounds kind of OCD but honestly I think these steps help quite a bit - artificial lighting makes our bodies go, "wtf, what time is it?"

u/Ddnsf11 · 1 pointr/Narcolepsy

Oh I forgot to mention sleep in my other comment. Make sure you're getting 8 hours of restful sleep. If you're not sleeping well, one thing you can try is cutting out blue light two hours before bed by using orange glasses.

Discipline to sleep on time. You're on TRT, time to cut the addictions and really live your life.

BUT if you really want to hack it once in a while:

I use these glasses at night if I have to be in front of the screen.

Melatonin will nuke your body into sleep. Take it 1 hr before bed. Good for fixing it once in a while, don't get dependent on it.

u/thesheeptrees · 1 pointr/askscience

You can buy selective filter glasses if what you want to do is selectively filter.

I use these for late night web browsing & for long drives (commercial driver), keeps my eyes from feeling as fatigued if I have to be paying attention to what I see for a long period of time. They pretty much eliminate blue light, so anything that's blue looks black or grey. Greens look weird too - the green is still there but it's hard to describe.

u/hammertime84 · 1 pointr/cscareerquestions

I use these:

I start wearing those at ~9:30 pm, and have them on until I go to bed at ~1 am. I use a red light bulb (you can get 3W RGB bulbs for under $10 also) as a reading light after I go to bed.

I also use one of these after I wake up and until I leave for work aside from when I'm in the shower:

Doing that has let me shift to about 3 hours earlier than I was before which lets me work a normal job without feeling awful all the time.

We studied this extensively at a previous job I had and it was pretty effective for people. Here's a sample study we did on hormone shifts with the same basic thing (we used blue led glasses and orange safety glasses instead, but same effect):

u/revrigel · 1 pointr/getdisciplined

There are still other sources of melanopsin-affecting blue light aside from monitors. Wearing blue blocker glasses after sunset in addition to using f.lux will help you feel tired at a normal time too.

I'd recommend trying those out before switching out all of the lights in your house.

u/I_Am_My_Own_God · 1 pointr/Fitness

> avoiding computer monitors and TV's before you want to sleep help for some people, as well, but melatonin and zmg are amazing.

u/smigglesworth · 1 pointr/Foodforthought

I personally find these to be the ultimate treat

u/TheRealHorseFetus · 1 pointr/decaf

Try to avoid naps and optimize sleep. If you absolutely can't make it through the day without a nap, set an alarm for 15 minutes, and lay on the floor with your legs propped up on something so the blood can go to your head.

Try optimizing your sleep. I'll list the usual shit if you don't already know: Use a physical alarm, turn your phone and other electronics off an hour before going to bed, make sure your room is pitch black when you sleep, set the thermostat a few degrees lower than usual while you sleep, invest in blue blocking glasses and wear them an hour before sleep

Sleep in complete silence. If you live with someone, use ear plugs. Foam ear plugs have been known to cause tinnitus and are uncomfortable. Try going to an audiologist and having them make you some custom molded silicone injected ear plugs. They're like $300 but they're so worth it. Look into black out blinds.

Set your physical alarm clock in a drawer so you won't look at it and be stressed that you don't have much more time to sleep.

Wake up at the same time every day and eat a large breakfast that's high in fats and protein. This will help with your circadian rhythm. Avoid carbs and sugars at breakfast.

Try to exercise during the day, and you've already tackled the most important thing which is don't drink caffeine.

Good luck sleepy man.

Those might work - I haven't checked those out. What I actually got were these (even less expensive). The difference is quite noticeable - I was surprised that I would start getting tired as quickly as I did. I thought it would take 2 or 3 hours.

Oh, as for the lights, I thought you meant inside. Outdoor lights can be timed to coincide with waning sunlight, and also timed to go off at certain hours of the night. Lots of programming already being done with some of the LED lights, I believe over in Europe.

u/Stoic_Scientist · 1 pointr/BedBros

Get yourself a pair of blueblocking glasses and wear them for the last 2 hours before you go to bed. They block the blue end of the light spectrum that our screens emit. It is the part of the spectrum that most excites the brain which is one of the reasons that being on your screen right before bed is a bad idea.

u/Garth_Lawnmower · 1 pointr/LucidDreaming

No the glasses are orange. Make sure they state what part of the light spectrum they block. I got these: because they fit over my glasses. If you don't have glasses the brand has a pair that are probably more comfortable: Seems to be one of the more trustworthy brands.

u/Vhett · 1 pointr/Advice

Honestly, I don't believe these will actually block Blue Light.

Blue Light is a wavelength, and while people say those glasses work, it could simply be a placebo. Blue Light is typically cancelled out with an orange-tinted lense. f.lux is an application which also tints your screen orange to prevent Blue Light from coming through.

The thing to understand is that an "orange" filter doesn't block Blue Light, but there's a specific kind of orange that does.

If you've ever watched MLG gamers, all of their glasses are tinted orange, and I too have orange-tinted glasses which do work. Never once have I seen regular lenses block CVS.

I highly recommend buying some that are from this company. I've bought a pair, and they work amazing. Do I look goofy as fuck? Sure. But I mostly use my computer at home anyways.

I have always struggled with sleep problems, try talking to a sleep doctor. If the doctor finds that you have a sleep disorder, that is covered by the ADA since sleep is a major life activity. Your employer must make a reasonable accommodation like flexible work hours or later shifts. (Just keep in mind that reasonable accommodation for one business may be prohibitive for another.)

I've struggled with sleep issues my whole life, too. I went to a doctor and these were her recommendations. I finally found a winning combination.

u/sonicfreak360 · 1 pointr/Nootropics

I actually have some personal experience in this! I used to get really bad anxiety and depression after orgasm. I started wearing blue light filter glasses 4 hours before bed because it apparently blue light supresses melatonin production in the body. I don't seem to have any more depression and anxiety after orgasm anymore, HOWEVER its way to early to tell because I've only tested this once out of fear of getting anxiety and depression again.

My theory is that improper sleep cycles mess with prolactin related stuff, and orgasming makes it worse. But uhh... Honestly, take this with a grain of salt. But if you wanna try this yourself, here is where I bought the Blue light filter glasses.

u/HonkMafa · 1 pointr/explainlikeimfive

Blue light inhibits melatonin production. Even with f.lux, you are getting too much blue light onto your retinas. If you must sit at a computer screen before bedtime, these will allow your body to produce melatonin.

Your daughter sounds awesome! What a fun birthday party idea.

First, if you can find them in bulk, I would buy a bunch of lab coats for the kids. Along with rubber gloves, and possibly even some safety goggles, so that they really get the feeling like they're a scientist.

Then I would make some form of “flubber” for the kids to play with, because that seems like a mad scientist thing. Actually, you could even have them make their own to play with, to really get the scientist feel.

I would also make different colored jello in these test beakers, to get the feel like they're consuming weird concoctions. I think that would be awesome. Bonus points if there are candy eye balls in there.

You could also make some desserts that are fun, like "mud pies" with gummy worms, things like that!

To be completely honest though, I don't know the maturity level of an 8 year old, so I don't really know what might be cool to them. All I know is that I would want a party like the one I just came up with.. That sounds awesome.

Oh, and don't forget the test tubes filled with candy!

Staring at the Sun may be painless, but the damage to your eyes is no less serious for that fact. Long-term staring at the Sun is sufficient to cause complete and permanent blindness. I urge you not to experiment with this again without proper eye protection.

u/bytesmythe · 1 pointr/fffffffuuuuuuuuuuuu

You might find this article about light, circadian rhythms, and mood problems interesting.

The short version: your eyes have special photo receptors that cue your brain to be awake. They are triggered by certain frequencies of blue and ultraviolet light. Using specially tinted glasses that blocks those frequencies can help "reset" your brain's version of day and night, reducing insomnia, cortisol, and mood disorder symptoms.

Combine the tinted glasses with a decent diet, some exercise, and sunlight during the day (or maybe a supplemental lamp if you live somewhere cloudy), and you have a cheap way of significantly reducing the worst symptoms of mood disorders.

u/redpillbanana · 1 pointr/TheRedPill

There are a few things you can do to help you get to sleep earlier:

  • Take some melatonin before your target sleep time.
  • Turn down the lights and try to stay in the dark to trigger your natural melatonin production.
  • Wear some orange safety goggles (blue light blockers) in the evening, maybe 1-2 hours before your target sleep time - this will allow you to do things like read or watch TV while tricking your body into thinking it is dark, causing your body to pump out melatonin.
  • Have some hard, wild sex about an hour before your target sleep time. The stereotype of a man rolling over and falling asleep after sex is true, and it also happens with women in my experience. There's nothing better than falling asleep with a hot young woman curled up against you right after you've fucked her silly.
  • If you don't have a hot and willing woman nearby, you can read something that is interesting but difficult (while wearing the safety glasses) before your target sleep time.
  • Do combinations of the above (e.g. I like to take some melatonin and then have some hard sex in a dark room - puts me to sleep immediately).

    EDIT: And make sure your sleep area is dark and quiet. Move if you have to.
u/Space_Tardigrade · 1 pointr/insomnia

This happened to my friend when she moved away 3 months ago. She's a high anxiety sort of person (bipolar/BPD) and the stress of being a in a new place and trying to find work and poor sleep hygiene and being surrounded by unfamiliar things made it impossible for her to sleep at night for the first two months. I think having some difficulty sleeping makes sense in a new location so my best advice is to be kind to yourself. Maybe look around your room and try to make it more like your old room, is there more light in this room? Do you sleep on the opposite side of the room? Are there more noises? Take time to understand that this is a new place and you're still adjusting to a big change.

Additionally, some advice that helped me: Don't look at the clock at night, don't let yourself be aware that it's 5 am and you have to wake up in 3 hours because then you will definitely not sleep. Don't lie in bed for hours trying to sleep, if you can't sleep after being in bed for ~20 minutes then get up and do something boring or meditative in dim lighting: reading a nonfiction book, sudoku, yoga, meditation, listening to classical music, etc. You don't want to build an association between the bed and anxiety. If you think light may be keeping you up you can try buying blue light blocking glasses like [these]( Listening to a guided meditation while in bed often helps me to relax [here's one I like]( CBD for anxiety if you're really having a hard time calming down, I have a vape but the oil also works.


Keep exercising, keep avoiding screens (or buy glasses if this is too difficult), but I have a note on melatonin: less is more. Lower doses (<3mg) timed 3 hours before desired sleep times are more effective at entraining sleep schedules. Exogenous melatonin (the stuff you bought from the store) is meant to act as a signal to your brain to naturally produce melatonin, if there's too much then your brain thinks it's covered and will slack off. Basically, if you take a little bit 3 hours before sleep then your brain will think "okay time to get sleepy" but if you take enough to have a sedative effect then your brain will think "welp looks like my job is done."

u/cardulio_sparhouse · 1 pointr/writing

Writing is the part about writing I like the most, so I get much less satisfaction out of it if I'm not doing it manually. Anything "serious" I will always write first in a notebook and type up afterwards. Like jacmoe said, pen and paper bind you emotionally to your writing, and it's also great for editing - especially if you let the handwritten version rest for a day, then improvements just jump out at you while you're typing.

That said, obviously people are still churning out great literature working on computers. I haven't consulted any statistics, but I doubt even 1% of writers still work primarily (or first) with ink and paper. So I suppose it's not so much how your writing tools affect your finished works, but more how they affect you. I used to do a lot of writing on the computer, but now I find it jazzes me up too much. Writing on paper can be as slow as I need, to allow thought processes ample gestation time so I can express things I didn't know I wanted or needed to say.

For typing my stuff out, I use my moribund Packard Bell... EasyNote I think it's called, with an external monitor (working directly on the laptop encourages back hunching and neck crunching) and a clacky USB keyboard (gotta love that "glorious noise" Redtail_Defense was talking about.)

Oh, one last thing - for anyone working on a computer a lot for any reason, and especially near bedtime, please get yourself a pair of Uvex!

u/NestingOrangutan · 1 pointr/bipolar

These are the ones Jim Phelps talks about. I'm wearing a pair right now. The appear identical to the one on low bluelights.come but are $9 instead of $70. UVEX makes several similar pairs with what they call an Orange SCT material. They all should work as they have the same transmission spectrum. A chart of their transmission spectrum is available on the UVEX website. The are designed to protect people who work around bright UV light and lasers which explains their ability to block large amounts of blue light.

u/bonefish · 1 pointr/Nootropics

No lie, I wear these after 8:30-9pm most nights:

I tend not to follow Dave Asprey, but I assume he suggests them to minimize screens' disruption of melatonin release?

Anyway, that's why I wear them, and I do think they've had a positive impact on sleep inducement. I tend to read on my iPad til a few minutes before sleep and I have no trouble winding down with these.

u/llmercll · 1 pointr/TheRedPill

The blue point is critical, and I would take it even further. Put on blue light blocking goggles 3+ hours before bed unless you fall asleep with the sun (which is practicaly no one). Also use F.lux or IRIS, which I find to be superior.

Here's a link to the blue blockers I use.

Anecdotal story here, but I've had sleeping trouble all my life. Literally being unable to fall asleep and having sleeping schedules that were delayed by about 15 minutes every night no matter what I did. Stopping the blue light fixed my problem.

u/WolfieDaMerc · 1 pointr/airsoft

These Russian ones are for $55.00, and look like they're high quality just from the picture. Thick-ass lense it comes with too.

These next boios on Amazon for around $20, and are called UVex, and I swear by them. I work in the labor field and UVex is one of the strongest, most reliable PPE I've ever heard of. These ones are clear, so I don't know if they'll stick out on camo or if they'll give your position away due to glare, or if they'll just appear clear.

If those two don't suite you, then I'd recommend getting a pair of JULI goggles off Amazon, any pair will work. Some of them are priced lower, but they work great for what you need it for.

u/mujeresliebres · 1 pointr/askscience

In an intro level chemistry course most of the chemicals aren't dangerous. You can teach a lot of basic principles with salt water. Of course, that will really hurt if it gets in your eye but it's not vision threatening. I've TA'd gen chem labs as a grad student, so while this does depend on the school, I probably have a better idea than most about the subject.

My advice? Get a pair of actually comfortable goggles. You normally have to pay $5-10 to get a pair of lab safe goggles from the bookstore. Why not spend $16 and get these bad boys? I bought these the 2nd week of gen chem 1 when I was going crazy because my face hurt so much, my glasses were fogging up, and I was just plain miserable.

I wore them in every single lab from then on throughout my BS and my MS in chemistry. They're still sitting on my mantle. I'm a biochemist so you normally don't need to wear goggles to do work, but I needed them to TA and take every other course.

And if you quit chemistry after one semester, sell them on Craigslist for $10.

My experience is that even with full seal goggles my glasses fog anyway. I'm looking into getting new glasses with anti-fog lenses, which only win out over anti-fog prescription goggles because I'm due for new glasses.

Hilariously, the goggles themselves don't fog. Mission accomplished.

u/PeteBunny · 1 pointr/chemistry

Got these for my wife. Only $11 and worth it.

She still had a problem with fogging until last week. The Lab assistant went over to her, "You are wearing them too tightly, it is blocking your vents". She loosened the goggles and they now stay clear an entire lab.

u/citruspers · 1 pointr/airsoft

Pyramex V2G have dual pane lenses that help with fogging more than single-pane lenses in my experience.

You'll have to buy them from, but even with shipping and import taxes they were only ~20 bucks total shipped to The Netherlands. I imagine shipping to Germany will be similar:

u/lWatsonl · 1 pointr/airsoft

I use these and like them. They are reasonably priced and thermal lenses so a little better in the fight against fog. I'm actually in the process of a fan project for them that I have been meaning to post up here. I like the mesh masks with the soft sides. I think mine is oneTigers or something like that. The quality is fine.

u/MasterShaftner · 1 pointr/airsoft

The hard thing is that a lot of this is up to opinion and how you play. To start I recommend getting that rifle, a pistol with lots of available parts (like a hi-capa), some goggles and a mask.

Get an mesh mask and for goggles [these](Pyramex I-Force Sporty Dual Pane Anti-Fog Goggle, Black Frame/Clear Anti-Fog Lens work well.

Stuff like plate carriers and chest rigs are hard to pick for someone else.

So to start for that I would just get a good belt and pistol holster.

u/toxicoranges · 1 pointr/airsoft

If you really want some quality eye protection, check this out. Cheap, durable, zero fog, and low profile. The $15 I spent on these goggles is by far the best $15 I have ever spent on any type of airsoft equipment. Plus, these goggles are the same ones that Novritsch uses if you are into that.

All that for less than 150 bucks. Just note the higher the model CYMA models like the CM031 are generally more robust and higher quality than the lower model number such as the CM028S.

You'll probably still have that CYMA for years down the road too. They make good loaner/friend/backup guns.

I use a set of these with smoked lenses. They will never fog unless you scratch the lens trying to clean them (which I did, whoops) and even then they won't fog profusely unless you're sweating buckets. My local field also considers them full seal so they work, and they look pretty good with light loadouts that don't utilize a helmet. I need to get my eyebrows trimmed though 'cause I keep getting sweat on the inner lenses sometimes.

u/Just-Buy-A-Home · 1 pointr/airsoft

Depends on your kind of play. Do you want to go fast or more like realistic milsim? Is it an indoor or outdoor? I’ve heard people recommend these goggles: and you should get some sort of mouth protector (probably something mostly solid plastic). If you are indoor, you will probably want a smaller gun with less FPS (most indoor arenas have a limit on FPS). For your gun and gear needs, I recommend checking out for the best gear, but unfortunately it will take a bit to ship to you. If you could, find out what kind of play you want, find out the kind of field, and (maybe) find out what your field FPS limit is (or which field you plan to go to with your bf) and I can find a couple of beginner gun selections for you! Happy to help!

u/yellowdien · 1 pointr/airsoft

What a wonderful idea for a contest.

I've had a rough time recently, some real ups and downs... but in order to keep this from sounding like a sob story I'll spare the details. If you're curious, I don't mind answering questions in PM's.

What I really need is my car fixed, but that's just something I'll have to take care of in order of priority. I don't have any friends here (in my town), but I am going over to meet a guy tonight that's going to help me build my forge. By all indications this could be my first local friend, and I'm excited for a couple reasons, one being having a friend, and two being FIRE!! FIREE!!! FI... uh... Blacksmithing!

Speaking of fire though, Blacksmithing carries a certain risk. Not only are you dealing with a coal (or gas) fire that can get upwards of (or higher than) 2000 degrees Fahrenheit (1093 C for those of you using that system.) but you are heating and handling that metal. I built a small soup-can gas forge and hammered a little bit on a railroad spike, but wasn't using proper tongs or PPE. I hit it, my pliers lost their grip and the hot spike flew up and hit me in the face just below my right eye. I got lucky it didn't hit my eye. Even though it only made momentary contact, it still burned and hurt for a week.

So, right now the items on my wishlist that would actively benefit my continued well-being would be the safety equipment on it. There's a heavy apron, a pair of welding gloves and a pair of decent safety goggles that would help protect me from flying super-heated metal.

u/kdvorkin · 1 pointr/woodworking

u/thr0wawayth1ngs · 1 pointr/glasses

What kind of protection do you need, and why? If it's a work-related requirement that you have eye protection, consider a pair of side shields that go around the arms of your prescription sunglasses. You could also get a pair of safety goggles that will go over your sunglasses (there should even be a tinted lens option).

yep, I know. I also know dye's stuff isn't cheap (which is why I went vforce profilers when I started paintball).
dual pane "antifog" pyramex is $17 on, and would let you try at least the amber tint at minimal cost; lets you try it before you commit to it on your i4s.
Otherwise you'd have to head into a store and check out the lenses yourself. Ask to see if you can look through them in a darker area of the store/look into darker shadows and see how well it works for you. I'd suggest trying them for a few minutes at least so you can see how well your eyes transition from dark/light situations and if you are comfortable with the tint.

u/DrColdReality · 1 pointr/answers

Nope, you stand a fair chance of frying the image sensor. Ever use a magnifying glass on ants? Same deal.

If you put a decent solar filter in front of the lens, then it's safe. You can either use the filters found in eclipse glasses, or a #14 welder's filter. Both are 100% safe for viewing the Sun any time.

Once the Sun is completely covered, it is 100% safe to look at with the naked eye, binoculars, or anything else.

Understand that the size of the solar image you get from a camera phone is going to minuscule. I'm using a 600mm lens on a Nikon D810, and I'd still like a little more magnification. Get a solar filter and go out and try it now, don't wait until the eclipse. For a quick test, if you have a piece of silver mylar like they make balloons from, that will work OK for a short time.

Bona fides: amateur astronomer, former pro photographer, and experienced eclipse chaser. I'm gonna be in Madras, OR (along with perhaps 100,000 other people).

a shit ton.

You can program a driver or app or whatever to basically set the blue portion of the RGB of every pixel to zero, but the LCD/plasma is still emitting A LOT of blue light. For example, darken your room and and go to MS paint, make a black background, then open the image in picture view or some app and full screen it, and just see the bright glow of the "black" pixels.

So if I understand your post, you've been trying to wear something like these, but they're not working for you. I'd recommend something more like these, they'll fit over prescription glasses and I've never had them get stained. Uvex makes a good pair, you can get them on Amazon for <$15/pair. Once you get them adjusted well to fit on your face you'll really forget they're there. I know they seem like overkill to a lot of people, but they're about as safe as goggles get and IMO they're a lot more comfortable than the larger impact goggles.

u/Irishpersonage · 0 pointsr/airsoft

Welcome to the sport! It's a blast.

For fields, check here:

You can always rent a gun and mask at the field you play at, although the quality won't be too great.

The first thing you should spend money on is good eye and face protection. I recommend either these or these goggles, and this face mask.

Don't worry about buying all the kit at the start. You'll find out what type of gear, camo, gun etc. you prefer after playing a few times.

For your first gun, look into AEG's. Don't spend less than $100, but you don't need to spend more than $200. CYMA, CA, JG, there are some high-quality affordable AEG's out there that will last a long time.
