You can also pay a couple bucks and then not watch any commercials on Hulu. Every once in a while, you get a show that isn't part of that plan and it shows a commercial at the beginning and a commercial at the end. So, you sit through 1 commercial, and then stop the video at/after the credits and not watch the second one. If you watch a lot of shows on Hulu, it's definitely worth a couple bucks.

I read a long time ago (so, I don't have a source and I don't even know if it's right) that your REM sleep cycles are around 90 minutes long. If you wake up in the middle of a cycle, you're super tired and groggy. If you hit it between cycles, it's fairly easy to wake up. If you vary both the time you go to bed and the time you wake up, you may be able to hit between those cycles. For a while, I had the stride set at going to bed at 10, and naturally waking up about 15-25 minutes before my alarm went off. Then I started reading Game of Thrones again and stay up well past 11 reading. Now I've been barely able to wake up when my alarm goes off. So, the sleep cycle thing at least FEELS like it's true! :D

+10 to this.

Companies are loyal to the bottom line, not to you. Don't sacrifice living your life trying to prove yourself trying to be the best employee ever by doing nothing but work. Companies love for you to make extra effort all the time, but if they can make a million dollars by firing you, it doesn't matter how good of an employee you are. Work hard, do your job, but be ready to leave at a moment's notice when something better is around - you REALLY don't owe them anything.

I'm sure he would have understood that. And then he would have gone around telling us, his grandparents, and anyone else that he had to shit. How would you describe the words Fuck, or Bitch? :D

Besides, when he was a little older and more aware of appropriateness, we had a better discussion about which words are appropriate to say in public. It was a much better way to handle it.
