...what is hypermanganese?
Potassium permanganate
Um... I don't think (3%) peroxide should sting unless there's an open wound. It's in fact one of the things you can put on a wound and it can spill over to surrounding skin. It shouldn't make skin go white or stiff. Are you sure that was 3% concentration?

Also what you were trying to do there was essentially ignite the carbon with the oxygen from the H2O2. So you probably need more starting energy for that.
Shows I should read labels more carefuly. I thought the one we were using for cuts was 0.3%. It is indeed 3%. The bottle I thought was 3% is actually labeled as 30%.

please be careful with these things >_> i know you're not exactly playing about with ether but even simple experiments where you're getting the concentration wrong by a magnitude cannot end well.

I was trying to be careful before it failed to do explode. Put it under a copper dome, wore face shield. I got it on my fingers when I was cleaing up. I should have worn gloves.

I got asked by an acquaintance if I was circumcised or not. I'm not answering that here; I have the right to not answer questions about my genitals, but... what the absolute fuck is that question? Mind you, he's not my doctor or anything. My own judgement is that we may as well be strangers, and he's not privy to that sort of information.

I asked him what kind of motive he had for asking me such a bizarre question, and he just said that I'm cute. I'm so lost.

He was into you. And apparently dumb.

That said, I was horrified to learn how often that's done in the US.

Yeah, friend, he is into you.

Now that I think of it, that question was structurally similar to asking about a woman's pubic hair. Similar target; genitals. Still doesn't stop it and other questions like it from being massively fucking inappropriate with strangers. That's, like an 11/10 on the Questions You Don't Ask Strangers Scale.

Also... oh fuck. People are into me? Shit. I've been denying that such a thing could even happen, but now that I've been presented with high quality evidence (in the most uncomfortable way possible), I simply can't pretend that it doesn't happen. Oh no.

Wait, werenít you the same dude who was harassed by that fellow who kept telling you that girls find you attractive? The same guy who said you needed to talk about Tic Toc more?

I don't feel particularly harassed, per se, but that fellow does still tell me that girls are attracted to me. I discarded all instances of such as smooth talking, but that incident involving that guy earlier made me realize he's probably not fucking with me. He's probably speaking a positively-biased version of the truth, still. My current assessment is that it's less biased than I thought. He seems like a pretty decent person otherwise, so I'm friends with him and I put up with his stories.

The Tik Tok thing was fairly minor; I don't bother talking about it, and yet people (both boys and girls) find me attractive. I don't even try to appeal to anyone, yet it still happens. What are they attracted to? I see nothing attractive in myself, so I really don't have a damn clue what they see in me. I would quite enjoy it if they just sat down with me and explained why they see me in such a positive light. Maybe it would cure them of their attraction towards me.

Just . . . don't worry about it too much. You can literally say "no thank you" if you want, or "I'm not ready for that right now." Relationships are for you to explore and decide what you want.

I work in a primary school. A few weeks ago, the principal decided to have an "English Festival" which started with a singing competition (songs in English, obviously).

Now, the principal decided there was "too much English" in the English singing competition and cut all of my students' hosting lines. Poor kids - they were excited to show off for their parents, too.
