Is there a problem for taking a gaming console out of a country with a plane?(along with its controller)

Is there a rule for that? Or for how many gaming consoles you can travel with?

I have actually only traveled by plane once, so I am no expert, but as long it doesn't exceed your maximum weight of luggage, you should be good.

 

Airport security might however find it a little suspicious if you have your only suitcase filled with playstations, but you'll know what to say.

There is a cellphone limit right? It’s only one i guess. However consoles are a bit different, if there are no limits for Laptops then neither should be for gaming consoles. I also think it wouldn’t be a problem.

 

I was just curious, never travelled with a plane.

Shouldn't be a problem. My brother-in-law has taken a Dreamcast on holiday before.

Taking games consoles on a plane is fine, so long as it's in your suitcase. I don't know the rules for hand luggage, but I'd hate for you to listen to me and wind up having it taken off you by some thug security agent.

I stopped visiting 4chan because of the NSFW content and generally unhealthy stuff. But I’ve been thinking of checking it out again to see how they’re reacting to the corona virus. Revisit 4chan or stay away?

Alright something a bit strange. Few weeks ago after a a few beers i felt that my eyes see a bit blurry than usual. I mean, not as blurry as it used  to be but then i forgot about it. Currently i still feel there is something wrong, may there be or is my brain playing with me?(I was a bigger weirdo a long time ago who did some weird sh*t, still kinda does)

Depends entirely on the board. There are some generally helpful and even informative threads to be found depending on your interests, but I assume you're talking about the more salacious boards. In my opinion, no, things aren't much better. If you've managed this long, you're missing absolutely nothing.

I think you're still allowed to carry consoles in hand luggage. That's how I brought my PS4 Slim from the capital on my current place of work. Suitcase was packed and the guys at check-in said that taking large electronics other than laptop in hand luggage was find as long as it's not operation. On top of that, it was an international flat as well. Not sure how it works in different parts of world though. I'm glad I asked the the security at check-in before hand.

I was just reading a story about a guy taking pictures of his dead boyfriend.  It got me thinking.  Do people take pictures of the birth process and post them on social media sites?

Understand what causes a hangover and act accordingly. Drink a glass of water per unit of alcohol drunk. I also sometimes proactively take an ibuprofen pill before going to sleep, though that might not be the best idea, because it stresses your liver a bit. But I haven't had any problems. Also, get some sugar in you.

The cynic in me says "don't drink". I never wake up with a fresh head and think "I wish I'd gotten drunk last night". This being said, I have since fallen off the wagon again and re-ignited my love for bourbon so take my advice with a pinch of salt. The classic advice is don't mix your drinks, but I don't know the science behind it all. I know it's so inconsistent. You can mix drinks all day and night and feel fine the next morning but you could have two pints of beer another evening and wake up feeling like you're recovering from an autopsy. Hydration is a big part in feeling part way human, so it's a good suggestion to drink water as well. There's all kinds of advice about hangover "cures" but truth be told, everybody that drinks has their own way of dealing with it and their own methods of conquering a hangover. Just know that when you hit a certain age, hangovers last longer and feel worse. That's just the trade-off you have to accept if you want to drink.

The thing about mixing drinks is funny. Americans, as far as I know, have a saying "beer before liquor, never been sicker". But we have the opposite saying here (that you shouldn't decrease the alcohol content of your next drinks). I don't think there's any truth to either of those, just that people tend to miscalculate how much alcohol they've drunk (hardly a surprise, given the fact that, well, they're drinking and their judgment is clouded), so after drinking 3 shots of 40% vodka and feeling fine, downing 5 beers feels like a piece of cake. And vice versa.

 

Anecdotally, I've had (minor) hangovers from just drinking a single beer in the evening. I've also noticed a correlation with "getting into it", that is, sort of behaving more drunk. Drink a beer and chill on the couch, doing nothing, vs. be more... drunk, I dunno, let the effects of alcohol show themselves more. But as I said, anecdotal and could just very well be related to my water intake at those times.

This saying was a game changer for younger me.  No sh*t.

 

The water trick is key.  Extra helpful if you switch to water an hour or so before going to bed.  Worst thing you can do as a beginner drinker is to keep drinking up until you go to bed.

It's also worth noting that some people aren't built to handle alcohol particularly well. Despite my past struggles with drinking, I have something called Gilbert's syndrome which was only picked up on last year after a blood test. It explained a lot of my stomach cramps and skin discolouration after a heavy night on the piss. I found it darkly amusing that I had a condition relating to my liver considering the circumstances. It doesn't affect me too much, but even without a condition like this, some people just can't drink heavily and feel okay with themselves. I know people that are on the floor after two pints, even with a meal. It's just not worth it for them to drink.

Well they do post newborns on social media as soon as the mother gets to hold the baby in her hands. Not sure about the birth process tho, I thought the loved ones have to stay outside while the doctors handle the birth.

I’m pretty young. Bad tbh, it may be like Rhoda says, maybe i’m not built to handle drinks. Although i never tried drinking lots of water with it, should do.

I am one of the latter. I always thought it was curious, I'm 6"1' and have a strong build from working in industry after HS (also i'm fat), but I'm notoriously lightweight in the pub. The upshot is that I'm often bought drinks and only need a couple because people find it hilarious. The downside is -always- getting absolutely destroyed on the town and spending a lot of time on my back...
