Update: Chika's route at 100%!   I'm still going to give it a once-over before handing it over to Ouraibaa, which might take a couple of days, but in the meantime:   http://strawpoll.me/2547512

update: Chika route done, handed off for QC-ing. Which means voting is now closed.   ...And, in what should come as a surprise to absolutely no one, Mayo wins.

Maan, you all write an awful lot. I have to spend my little free time everyday to keep up with the thread haha, and I think it's going faster and faster these days. Also the translation is still

I'm not sure what you've tried yet, but I find that this method tends to help a lot of people and is a little less known about.

 

Inhale as much air as you can, then exhale as much as you can, and finally hold your breathe until you can't anymore. Keep doing this until your hiccups are gone (you usually only have to do it once or twice).

 

I know it's been like 5 hours and they're probably gone already (at least I hope they are), but give it a try if it comes up again.

I'm not the worst one here! "Faster than 68% of AU" surprised me though, our country's internet is worse than I thought. I know some people's perception of Australia is "barren outback with animals that kill you", but the reality is more a technologically advanced, sprawling metropolis. So while I love living here, its strange to me my 850kb/s is faster than most of the country. I mean, relative to my country, I apparentally have better internet than havoc and his 50mb/s (B rank vs C rank, better than 68% vs better than 57%).

 

The upload speed would be exaggerated as I get nothing like that in practice. When I download things I tend to max out at around 700kb/s of the 850 odd from the speed test, but it's enough for my VNs and girl cartoons.

 

Yeah, speedtests say i download at 4mb/s, but thats a lie, the highest my downloads have ever been were at 450 kb/s. Atleast i dont have cap, but once i download 400gbs, my internet is severely throttled, so in that sense i do kind of have a cap, but its tolerable.

 

4 Mb/s (megabit) = 500 kb/s. Unless you meant MB/s (megabyte), but these things tend to be in megabits.

Still better than some of your but cmon I live in Finland

And so do I:

But 7Mb/s is not that bad, we had 5 for a very long time just until recently and it's only the downloads that are a pain. Netflix, Youtube and any other streaming service worked just fine when watching 1080p content. Unless someone else got on.  

 

 

I can bet that no one is in a greater misery than me right now.

Oh wow you live in Finland didn't know that :D Actually I pay for 15 and usually it is that. But one thing I want is a better upload, download speed is okay

Then you need to eat them fibers and be a healthy boy. ADSL uploads suck cock, wish could get fiber here.

I managed to make them go away by not breathing and clamping a hand over my mouth and nose for as long as I could without hurting myself in some way.  That's the best way I've found to get rid of hiccups.  I've tried having someone scare me and drinking a lot of water, but neither of those helped at all.  I was just getting irritated because I thought they'd go away by themselves like usual.

 

Hiccups? I just stop breathing or breathe really slowly and that does it.

Pretty much what I do.  I actually developed my current anti-hiccup technique during high school when I had them so bad they hurt my throat and I was having trouble breathing.

Oh okay. I tried holding my breath without using any kind of inhale and exhale technique, but it didn't work for for me. I don't think I've ever seen scare tactics work on anyone, but I've seen a few get over it by drinking water. Not sure what it is that gives variation to this, but I guess there are some things that just work better for others. I actually only discovered the method I use about a year ago. Before that, I would just let it go away by itself (really sucked).

I googled "40k yen" to see the exchange rate, and this was the second result.  I'm not exactly surprised, but why would people actually pay for that?  :michiru:

Just how desperate would someone have to be to pay for that. I'm not the least bit surprised something like this exists, but I'm utterly astonished that someone would actually pay for this nonsense.

Lol that's really weird. And it was 8 years ago so the price is probably higher now if the service still exists.

 

I wouldn't do that for free much less pay for it, just seems like a waste of time. Maybe if she's super good at video games I'd get her to unlock some harder trophies for me. :illya:

This is actually way (WAY) better than I expected....

 

 

Keep in mind though that my internet is inconstistent as FUCK so sometimes I cannot even connect to the modem from my room and there is an issue with my network adapter where I usually need to manually update the driver software to reconnect to the internet
