Bahaha, I vaguely remember the Genesis thread. A mod and myself and a few other members over in the OGA wanted to have some fun with it, and I remember this mod particularly changing the deepthroatgta4 name to Chevy Chase. It was a bit of an inside joke. Don't know about the rest, though. I kind of disappeared after that.

During some YouTube videos, the quality automatically re-adjusts into 144p from 360p (likely cause of slow internet connection). Is there any way to disable this from happening? I can happily wait for it to load.

Try pausing the video for a while and wait for the light grey buffer bar to load up a bit more.

Can't we like "fix" it to 360p only?

Why can't I pop my ears? Not matter how hard I blow my nose they just won't pop. I can cover my nose up and blow until the pain is almost unbearable but they just won't pop.

You could be sick or something. I got really ill when I was travelling a few months ago and when I had to fly back, my ears "clogged up" or whatever on the plane and would not pop for 3 weeks after I got back.

 

I went to the doctor and he said to under no circumstances constantly try to blow them out, that you can cause serious damage doing that. If anything just wait it out and take some decongestants. He told me to also gargle hot salt water but that didn't do anything.

I've never been able to pop them. I think I should have mentioned that. Oh and my Brother has never been able to either so I'm not sure if it's something to do with genetics.

...you're just trying to pop them at rest? Or at altitude?

That's a great job if anything like the people I've been acquainted with.

You go to the Mall Office, if they do use a contractor they will tell you.

Some use contractors for all the work, many use them only for the heavy work, and have their own people to patrol during the store hours.

What about the big cleanup over night? is that usually "heavy work" that's given to contractors?

Zee tweets about topics/members on gtaforums, so probably, unless he's being impersonated. :whuh: I think someone said Slamman was over the forums.

I've never seen Aron before, only Aaron (for boys) and Erin (for girls).

 

NathanT: I have trouble popping mine as well. I find it best to try to pop them once (usually fails, but builds up more pressure) and then wait a bit. They should crackle out on their own. It helps to open your mouth and move your jaw around a bit, too. My ears get really sensitive on flights, to the point that I'll be biting a pillow trying not to cry like a little baby. I know others who experience no pain at all, so it really varies with each person, as we all have differently shaped inner ears and eustachian tubes and all that, which are what primarily handle pressure equalization in our ears.

Try chewing gum, and the occasional yawn - and the most simple thing that I learned from diving: doing it before the pressure builds in the first place. A bunch of small, non intense equalizations are far better than trying to do it when the whole system is pressurized and swelling.

Not to worry, just visit the Mall Office and find out. If they do you go to the Contractors office to apply there.

Overnight is when they bring out the ride'um sweepers, and scrubbers, as well as walkers, and even plain old brooms and mops and buckets. The individual stores have their own crews (usually the clerks).

Also, the job is called (Floor or plant) maintenance not custodian. custodian is a librarian, in the U.S.

Yeah from rest, even from altitude they don't pop. I just want to pop them because for literally years it's felt like I need to, as I have a constant crackling every time I breath. When I went to the doctor about it, he didn't really give a f*ck and just said I wasn't trying hard enough so f*ck him. And I've tried yawning and chewing gum but still not luck.

Slamman is pretty bitter and pretty much anti-GTAF. As much as I like to see the powers that be let him back in, I'm not sure he would even accept any such offer.

 

I often "feel" MURDOC in some newly created accounts. Totally curious, but would never pursue since a few of us may have inadvertently been responsible for his later alt accounts getting found out.

 

I never really knew of Zee enough, but judging by the stories I hear, and the deep marks he left - I'd kind of be surprised if he wasn't a regular lurker or even a well behaved PBM.

How about at depth do you have problems touching the bottom of a pool?

It may be that fresh Mancunian air that's blocking your tubes. Aside from the usual gum, yawn, holding your nose techniques which you can still try afterwards, try steaming with a bowl of hot water and towel over your head to breathe in the steam. You can also get menthol crystals from some pharmacists which you just need to add in a tiny amount (like a seriously tiny amount as they are strong) and trying breathing that in it may help to release any blockages and reduce any swelling you have in your passages. After that you can try popping your ears in the usual way and see if it helps, you may need a few sessions over a few days to get it to work.

I'll also point out that if you don't have trouble with altitudes or depth then it probably isn't a case of not being able to pop your ears. Ears pop when pressure builds, so if you can't build pressure, you can't pop 'em. Which is probably a good thing.

 

However if your ears feel like they've got cottonballs in them it's probably something unrelated.

Admins are mostly trying to solve all the bugs in the latest forum boards. Due to that, they are deactivating some functions in this forum. It's difficult for admins to take care of this bulky forum. You may need to wait and see if the admins have made any progress with their debugging.

I think you have an OCD opposite to theadmiral's. She just wants to make something or the other every 10 minutes and you expect new threads popping up every 10 minutes.

 

Don't tell me you both are in some private clan of topic thrasher.
