I had something similar when I was a kid, on my feet and wrists. I had to soak my feet and wrap my wrists for 30 minutes everyday in some sort of "medicine" (no idea, I was that young) and had to wash using phisoderm, which used to come in a bright green bottle. I never went barefoot until I was like 8 or 9 because my feet were always chapped and cracked. I can remember waking up some mornings and my bedsheet would be bloody becasue I had been scratching my feet and wrists in my sleep.

I was lucky and grew out of it when I hit puberty.

Holy crap. Uber lost $4B on $11.2B in revenue. Ignore the headline $997M profit as that is a result of $5B in income from divestitures. I suspect that those divestitures were timed to goose the S1 income statement so Uber could go public as "profitable"

Wow. Any idea how Lyft is doing on the profitability front?

ETA quick google news search says pretty much the same, adjusted for market share.

Detroit couple creates Netflix-like service with pro-socialist programming

Like any good start-up, they're trying to raise capital.

A flat $10/month? Those fascist regressive pricks. Shouldn’t it be free to the 99% and paid for by $10,000/month subscriptions to the 1%?

I wish I could figure out why the OXO coldbrew maker clogs or leaks one out of four batches. The really enraging/confusing times are when it manages to do both.
