I've spent some time watching the "repair" side of YouTube lately, and with a bit of common sense (and a careful reading of the comments) you can spot the "fake experts," from useful amateurs, from the pros.

Some good fun YouTubers I found lately:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zyav4FWncCQ Keith Appleton does well-paced informative videos on model steam engines. In his Stuart 5A videos he deliberately tries taking some shortcuts, and shows the undesirable results, with plenty of warnings for novices about what's appropriate. He also has a great voice and persona - kind of like you'd expect Santa Claus to sound, but he can be just a little bit cocky when responding to some out-of-left-field suggestions from the viewers :) But he is not too rough and I've noticed he goes out of the way to respond to viewer questions. IMO he shows how to do it right.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHLKIEGALvk Mustie1 spends a lot of time in his garage fixing up gas engines of all descriptions - new, old, small, big, WV, Honda, whatever. Another winning personality and takes you through his procedures. Sometimes he gets forgetful but it's all in good fun here, and that always beats throwing things in the trash.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AlfJ1dxTuWI Mr Carlson's Lab

There are some people who get more attention than their skills deserve. I won't name names, but I will say that quite clearly some of the people doing cosmetic "restorations" (which turned out to be my gateway to better channels, which YouTube recommended - there's hope yet for algorithms) are quite bad. At least some of them are quite open about their methods and the shortcomings in their work, and others just do well.

I think that the biggest problem on YouTube is that many people, like myself, tend to armchair quarterback the heck outta everything, and it's usually just useless prattle. Like I said, you can usually spot these comments. One of my favorites is when somebody said "I disagree with virtually everything in this video" and then nitpick a tiny detail which turns out to be a matter of historical uncertainty or even taste :D

Edit: wrong link!

Could very well be me, but the fact that the guides to root a phone sound as complicated as changing the oil on a Federation starship is frustrating and discouraging, to say the least.

Getting an alert from my Intel Driver & Support Assistant that driver updates are available and having to update this Assistant EVERY TIME there's a new driver available. Remarkable.

People who use a ridiculous amount of toilet paper when they go to the bathroom. Yes, stool is gross, but you don't need to expend 1/3 of a roll every time you evacuate.

That's easy for someone without a hairy buttcrack to say.

Seems like it'd be itchier once the hair started growing back, or hurt when they were small hairs? Plus I'm pretty sure I have hemorrhoids so my butt is a constant nightmare. Also there's already too much other stuff I have to shave, so I guess I'll just stick to being a mudbutt.

It's gotten progressively more difficult to do so .. I'm pretty sure my next phone is going to be root-free, and just buy something that doesn't have a heavily customized/bloated version of Android. Or get one I can install LineageOS to. My current phone is still on Cyanogenmod, lol

It's weird & a little annoying to maintain but you get used to it & it's def better on the ole' bootyhole. Just don't touch the buzzer to the browneye and you'll be good to go. I'd also suggest using a soapy rag over TP when available. I have an active job and during the summer the last thing you want is a bacterial breeding ground around your nether regions.

Man, that's probably how my ass got so fucked up, being sweaty all the time. It's never been the same since my fast food days, slaving over the grill.

I feel like we've really bonded here.

Would it be safe to shave your buttcrack by yourself?

I cut my hair by myself and it's pretty hard to shave the back, so I think I could manage the bhole okay.

This is why bidet/washlets need to be everywhere. Got a portable one and I've never had a bad day since.

Yeah, I know a few people with them who swear by them. My ass is so fucked though that spraying water directly at it hurts. I itch the hell out of it in my sleep since it itches all the time, so I wake up with sore butthole most mornings and the stinkfinger. I probably have a lot of issues. I hope in the future when you can get new organs I can get a new asshole because this one sucks... ass.

I had unbelievably intense hemorroids before the holidays, and the culprit was obvious : it was sweat (coupled with tons of walking/physical effort, probably. I had a job where I walked non-stop all day). I met a surgeon lady who deals a lot with hemmoroids and she confirmed that sweat in that area creates ton of irritation and ultimately, hemmoroids. She said the best remedy was to get a sitz bath, and put lukewarm water(not hot) in and sit in for 15-to-20 min(no more since sitting on toilet for too long actually aggravate hemmoroids and can be its cause too because that position is not like regular sitting; it contracts anal-area muscles that shouldn't be put under stress. so no browsing your phone while taking a shit and chilling, hurry up and do your business)at least once a day, including after every time you defecate (you gotta clean bacterias off that area/lesion). you don't even need to bother with the pouch of liquid, just fill the seat and sit in.

She even went as far as too say that the creams(Preparation H, etc) don't even work, although I did put some on anyway. She says it's all in the sitz bath. She also suggested that at work I dried the ol' ass crack and asshole area mid-day (I had to do it with gentle touches of toilet paper but maybe something smoother is better suited). That helped so much to reduce the irritation and to heal. She also advised to change position every now and then/avoid sitting for too long when you're having an outburst of hemmoroid

By following her instructions, I got rid of the hemmoroids after one week (I was home for that time though, I guess if you're working a physical job during that time it may take a bit longer). No more itching for the vast part and when I do sense a tiny bit of itching coming, I get back on using the sitz bath for a couple days and it goes away

Follow this and you should get better. Hope you'll heal well my good dude

How Wikipedia deletes articles like the alternate display modes without warning. It's one thing to delete articles, but as long as it's not something actually illegal like child pornography, can't they at least give a warning in advance so that people can have the chance to put the info elsewhere?

Tape/glue etc. that somehow sticks infinitely better to my oily, uneven skin than to the clean, flat surface I'm actually trying to apply it to.
