Is it normal to get the occasional day where you're mildly manic or something? (Closest word I can think of really)

Sometimes I just wake up in a good mood and I'm full of energy for literally no reason. Usually I'll get bored of things easily, get annoyed with stuff way faster than normal and feel really restless.

Since the robot in question is for a civilian market couldn't you just shoot it or run it over and kill it that way?
Ironically, I answered your question by misreading it as: "You can't shoot a robot made for a civilian market! It's a civilian!"

Yeah, I think that is fine.
Coffee/caffeine can also do that.

Yeah my first instinct was sleep quality. Sleep apnea or other disorders can lead to this.

statistically speaking boredom and loneliness is the underlying cause of many things

Or possibly ADHD, though that should also manifest in other arenas of life.

How would I mathematically work backwards to figure what a figure was before a percentage increase? Like, if a number increased  by 8 % how would I work backwards to deduce what the number was before the increase?

Are you over-thinking this?

x * 1.08 = current_value

Solve for x.

Yeah... I'll totally have to compare it with a low number analogy even when it's something simple like a rule of three, still wasting mental energy like that because I just don't feel confident with equations and formulas. It gets better when I use math more or less regularly. But when I don't I quickly revert to my feral self that's some sort of imaginary finger counter so to say.

To be totally honest mctravellers answer didn't give me full confidence, eventhough the opening question implies remove 8%, as I said above, I'd have to compare it mentally with another example that's easy to solve.

I'd like to save face. I was thinking it had to do with proportions or ratios. Like, if I increased a figure by 50%, that 50% in the new figure represents 1/3 of the new figure. If I increased the figure by 1/3, then the 1/3 represents 1/4 of the new figure. I wasn't thinking what to divide with  the figure, but rather what proportion to subtract from it.

Numbers are complicated man, especially when youíre not quite sure whatís going on with them.

Just so long as you don't say things are twice as slow, or twice as cold, or other nonsense like that  >:( ;D

Does caffeine really darken blue eyes?

Can most adults touch their toes?
