I’m a 20m and I work as a carpentry apprentice with a union contractor. I’m just a first term apprentice, so I usually end up spending a significant amount of time cleaning. Because I usually spend most of the day working by myself, I enjoy listening to sports podcasts to pass the time faster. Usually I’d be listening to it with headphones (they needed to be updated) but today I was listening on my mini speaker. I regularly just keep my speaker playing when I’m talking with my supervisor just on a lower volume. Today while I was talking to my foreman (he’s a pretty nice guy and we get along pretty well). We were having a spirited debate about whether or not he actually drank urine (his argument was that he drank so much water that it didn’t taste like anything). When our conversation came to a pause to my surprise David jacoby blurted out “vibrating anal beads”. We both burst into laughter. After he left I backed up the podcast to see what story possibly could bring this up. (It was some story about a chess player and coach using vibrating anal beads to communicate which is cheating). Once I actually had an explanation on why that came up on the podcast I went to go talk to my foreman. I stupidly kept my podcast playing while I was looking for him. While I was passing a couple coworkers it was blurted out again, I cut my losses and continued looking for my foreman. I played it back for him and we both got a good laugh out of it.

TLDR David jacoby embarrassed me in front of my coworkers twice without trying

I thought it's sterile


hufflestitch t1_isxfvsn wrote

Urine is only sterile if 1) you don’t have a UTI, and 2) it’s collected sterilely. The tissue surrounding the urethral meatus often has bacterial colonies on the skin. So antiseptic would have to be used to clean the skin, and the urine would have to collected sterilely into a sterile container. Otherwise allowing urine to “age” is likely to result in bacterial growth. Regardless, bacteria still isn’t the biggest issue with drinking urine. You have to consider that this is what your kidneys excreted as waste, so putting it back through your renal system isn’t going to do any favors to your kidneys. Theoretically the same could be said for the liver if you are spilling bilirubin.

If you are on a construction site, earbuds/headphones are a REALLY bad idea. Saftey first... Every contractor I've known had a boombox that they blast music on.

I live in a new construction development that's still being built. They've definitely always got music on at all the in-progress houses. The flooring guys have especially good taste, and one of them can sing super well! You can hear him installing carpet and belting out 90s ballads from a block away.

You shouldn't be using headphones on a construction site.

Everyone has speakers and you just accept it, and have courtesy, that when someone is trying to speak you turn it down if its loud, or if you walk into a room with your speaker going and someone else is already in there, you turn yours down/off.

roguespectre67 t1_isri2yw wrote

This was one of the things they always bitch at me about. I usually have some kind of thing playing at my desk-music, a Youtube video, something to relieve the tedium of sitting there doing paperwork and answering phone calls and emails. Usually have my headphones on because nobody else in the office has the same interests as me and I don't want to make the 8 middle-aged Hispanic women out of the 11 staff we have listen to the Swedish and German metal bands I like. First it was "Fine, just get your work done." Then it was "We don't mind if we hear that, just don't use your headphones because you might miss the doorbell." Odd, considering that my office is about half the building away from the door and we have two people with offices on either side of the door who can answer it. Now it's "When you have your headphones on it looks like you're not working. Please don't use your headphones at your desk." This is despite the fact that I currently do the work of about 4 people including a hefty amount of what should be my boss' work that he's either too lazy or too apathetic to do. How do I know this? Because last week while he was on vacation we found months of backlogged paperwork stuffed in drawers and in intermixed piles all over the office, as well as the fact that he had over 300 unread emails from clients trying to get ahold of him.

But sure, bitch at me about being considerate and wearing headphones while I'm working.

My kids have in ear headphones and over ear headphones, they use both at the same time, that way they can listen to music/YouTube and hear their friends while playing games.


cafedream t1_issnp5c wrote

I do the same and I’m a 40 year old woman. I listen to audiobooks while I virtually kill shit. It’s a nice way to shake off my work day.

I also listen to an audiobook on my headphones literally all day while working. Helps my ADHD brain to not get distracted as much.


ThsMnkyWntsaWrdWthU t1_isuo7rd wrote

I do this too! Man, one of the best feelings in the world is finding out other ADHD people do the same "odd" things I do to get by/relax. It makes me feel more normal. Thanks for being that person for me today!


cafedream t1_isv8xwg wrote

I used to listen to music and then podcasts. But now I find audiobooks to be the best way to minimize distractions. I also listen while I’m cleaning or doing literally anything that I need to minimize distractions. If I need to concentrate hard on something and the book is becoming the distraction, I turn it off. Otherwise, I’ve got sound in my ears.

My ADHD friends hard core plan and make lists. I just distract my brain so I don’t get distracted. If that makes any sense. 😂


IHerdYouLiekMudkipz t1_isvdp4u wrote

If you do this on a computer you could pull up your audiobook or podcast in a web browser or application, that way you only need 1 headphones


cafedream t1_isvs32z wrote

I could but there’s something about having the sound come from a different source than where my game is from that helps me concentrate on both. Like I could legit listen to an audiobook and have someone talk to me and it’s fine. But if two people are talking in the same room and one of them is talking to me, my brain jumps back and forth and short circuits.

just throwing this in here, I'd suggest a pair of the Bone-Induction headphones. My wife got me a pair last year and I'm already at two pair. They dont go over your ears, so you can hear conversations in the room (as long as it's not blasting full volume)

My last job gave me a bunch of crap about headphones and in-ear plugs, but for some reason, they couldn't figure out what the new headphones even were... and a super cool bonus? You can wear ear plugs and still hear the music, pretty cool when you have to work with heavy equipment.

Any recommendations on brand for those?


the_ringmasta t1_ist7hxe wrote

Aeropex sound good. Mine keep breaking, but they also keep replacing them in warranty. So, just don't plan on them lasting past the warranty period, which makes them pretty expensive.


lipp79 t1_istcowm wrote

What is causing them to break? Is it daily use? Poor design?


the_ringmasta t1_istm5sy wrote

I use mine a LOT. Almost constantly, really.

I think there's a design flaw, as they all break the same way at the same spot, and combining that with my rough treatment may be too much for them. They may work great for people who don't wear them nearly 24/7.


NeedsMaintenance_ t1_issn44n wrote

I'm so much more productive if I'm working while listening to something; podcast, music or audiobook.

If I get bored, my mind wanders.

When my mind is wandering, my productivity drops.

If I'm listening to something, I'm not bored, my mind doesn't wander and productivity is great.

I also have depression and anxiety, so if just left to my thoughts, the bad ones start to seep in eventually.

Btw, the anal beads are a joke that went viral, and there's no evidence of Hans Niemann cheating outside of online chess right now. The guy who was his coach, Maxim Dlugy, has allegedly cheated online in the past but hasn't been associated with him for a few years - only released his emails because the chess world champion Magnus Carlsen, who originally accused Hans of cheating, mentioned him along with Hans

Its not even real. It was a joke started online being the only way this guy could cheat with their security was if he used vibrating anal beads or something. And the guy that lost ( because he is ruch powerfully and sheltered by the chess community) has just Said yep he must have used anal beads.

No Magnus he just kicked your ass .

If your intrested.

Magnus just sold his little on line chess empire to for $85 million so they have the monopoly in on line chess games and Magnus is to stay on as the figure head/mascot only to lose his first game in the next tournament. He then left without even telling anyone . He announced on Twitter that he quit the tournament after his next opponent won by forfeit. He is a man baby who can't except that he lost and is backing him because of their financial interests.

I said my piece.


Rylddd t1_isritjd wrote

Not only has he confessed to cheating before, but he was shown to have cheated more than 100 times, mate. Magnus has lost many times before and has not thrown accusations like those he did at Hans before. Hans couldn't even explain his moves. He cheated, regardless of what his fans want to say.


Annanake420 t1_isrknv6 wrote

Yeah he confessed to cheating when he was 14 . (In an online game)

Shown 100 times all of a sudden though ? Funny how all of a sudden they have "evidence" from previous games . Why not bust him then ?

But yeah I'm sure he had vibrating anal beads and somehow was getting signals from outside of the tournament as there were no spectators and it was on a 15 minute delay online . Sounds real as shit to me . Not even a fan of either player I just can smell big money holding on to power no matter what B.S. when I smell it.

Why didn't Magnus go to the tournament heads and bust him then and there. At least check his shoes for a device anything But run off and pout .

I do like how everyone else is getting busted now . Swiss chess club president and the like .


Rylddd t1_isrmmfu wrote

They have busted him before, privately. His account was closed in 2020 (when he was 16) for cheating. They let him continue playing due to his young age. According to, they were going to ban him before Magnus even tweeted anything about the incident. They have intentionally held evidence private so as to respect the privacy of players throughout the ordeal. The only reason evidence was made public was due to Magnus' public accusations (which you could argue were emotionally motivated, yes).

For the same reason, it would be humiliating for tournament organizers to pause the tournament to do a full shoe and cavity search in the moment. It's also ridiculous to expect Magnus to run to tournament organizers and make such a request. I have a feeling even if he did so it would only lead to more people calling him a "man baby."

I know that's what I said it was a joke on line and they ran with it you illiterate fool.

Learn to read.

That's the most absurd part of this whole nonsense.

That and all the people believing both the anal beads and the 100's of times we cam retroactively prove he cheated all of a sudden .

He is cool with every single chess organization except who have a financial stake in it being true.


thclogic t1_iss6ku5 wrote

I've heard that Magnus was working on some obscure opening he didn't use before which coincidentally the kid was prepared for which meant the kid either randomly studied the opening and it's defense or someone from magnus' training camp leaked what he was working on and that's why he moved the way he did.


EmeraldFox23 t1_isrtjkr wrote

Is it not confirmed that he has previously cheated multiple times, and even more often than he himself stated after the controversy? Anal beads or not, dude is not trustworthy.


Annanake420 t1_isruz9m wrote

He admitted to cheating when he was 14 in one of his first on line games. Everything else has been all of a sudden brought out in the last few weeks.

I don't know how guilty he is. But if we going with untrustworthy then half the field has been busted multiple times not only in on line games but using devices during live tournaments. And after a slp on the wrist they are back at it .

But only Hans embarrassed Magnus so he must be cheating.

With anal beads .



EmeraldFox23 t1_isrwe20 wrote

To be clear, are you saying he didn't cheat because other professionals have cheated and gotten away with it? Those two events are completely unrelated.


Annanake420 t1_isrxyng wrote

I'm saying I do not know . And I certainly am not going with the strait t up joke that 4chan put out stating that "if he cheated he must have used anal beads. "

Or believe accusations brought up years after the fact from the same company who has an $85 million reason to keep Magnus as the best player around . Actually more than $85 that's just what they paid Magnus for his on line chess company. Which gives them a monopoly of on line chess tournaments. It's too convenient to accuse him now .

There was and is no proof other then his victory of cheating in the st Louis tournament.

And if they knew he cheated all these confirmed times it needed to be addressed when it happened. Not brought up years later to help their narrative against him .

Its too convenient in my opinion.

Especially when is the only accuser. Every other chess board or tournament out there has publicly stated he is in good standing with them as of a few days ago .

And the other professionals didn't "get away" with it I'm saying that they got caught red handed took a suspension or fine and went about there business just as Hans did when he was 14.

My point in that was you saying he is not trustworthy.

Then neither is half of the pro chess players. Alot are even worse as they have been busted multiple times and at live events.

Which is why they metal detect and check for signals emminating from players before live events along with showing the " live play " streaming on a 15 minute delay which is now 30 minutes in most cases.

Their new crackdowns have gotten some people caught as of late including the president of the Swiss chess league.

Now seriously I need to go to bed instead of explain how corrupt literally every organization on the planet seems to be nowadays.

Just depends on your definition of sport. Do you have the same problem with people being called a "bad sport" some people use sport as "game or competition. Just as in the previous mentioned phrase you could say "you have a bad attitude when you lose". To be clear I am not saying it is or isn't, just noting why this argument always creeps up with less physical competition. I prefer keeping words defined clearly and believe sport should mean competition with physical prowess involved.
