2023.03.20 21:01 alscacean Probably Hard to Believe but True

Me and my wife make about $500K per year with salary and bonuses about $330K after taxes. We are mid 40s and have 2 young kids under 4 years old. We live in the LA area in a decent 3/2 house we bought in the pandemic for $1.3MM - we owe $1.1MM on the mortgage. We have about $200K in liquid savings + the equity in the house ~$500K.
But we are struggling and racking up debt. We now have $60K in credit card debt + loans on the cars. We are planning on applying our entire tax return (which is typically large in the $50K range to this debt). We also have a maxxed out 2nd mortgage @ $100K with a high (8%) variable interest rate.
Both of our kids are in pre-schools which is about $3.7K per month. Our car payments total $1K per month and our mortgage is about $7K. I feel like we have good salaries, but we are really just treading water and not building our net worth. Some of the forced savings help but I think it's offset with credit card increases.
We spend about $27K per month. Which I couldn't believe at first, but the math gets you there quickly. Here is a typical month of the top 5 expenses:
Monthly Expenses:
  1. Mortgage + 2nd Mortgage: $7,800
  2. Kids Educations: $3,700
  3. Restaurants / Ordering In: $2,500
  4. 401K Contributions: $2,500
  5. Groceries: $2,000
  6. Home Improvements (averaged): $1,800
  7. General Merchandise: $1,370
  8. Personal Care: $1100
  9. Travel (averaged): $1,000
  10. Cars: $1,000
  11. Healthcare / Medical: $800
  12. Insurance: $500
  13. Utilities: $500
  14. Entertainment / Gas / Gifts / Home Maintenance / Etc: $930
I've been at my company for 16 years and I'm getting bitter that I haven't been made a partner, but I also feel I should be grateful for a $350K salary per year.
I'm considering the following:
  1. Quit my salary job and go out on my own in the same field. (I'm confident I can succeed at this but not without a couple years of comparable or below comparable pay).
  2. Sell my house and move to a more affordable part of the country. (This means I have to start over in my industry).
  3. Try my hand at being a custom spec home builder. I'm senior management at a high end custom home builder.
  4. Be grateful for what I have, shut up, and continue to grind / wait for better days.
Any of your ideas or comments would be appreciated.

2023.03.20 20:58 Naabjenia Yet another weapons suggestion thread

Yet another weapons suggestion thread
Hey, everyone!
I'm gonna make yet another thread with a few weapons suggestions and some other things hoping that some dev sees it.
I will list a lot of weapons, but I'm aware that they likely won't be added at all, since most updates add only 2 weapons.
So, here it goes:
Rifleman / Commander / Observer / Demolitions
  • Security team:
    • F2000 (and GL-1 grenade launcher)
      • I think the F2000 has been long awaited by the community. Being a full-sized rifle and having a high rate of fire, I think it should cost 6 supply points, being the Security counterpart of the FAMAS. It would be nice to have its proprietary optic, as well as the rail to add all the other optics available in the game.
F2000 Tactical with GL-1 grenade launcher
  • Insurgents team:
    • New attachment for the M16A2
      • The M16A2 is a great rifle. However, it lacks close-range optics. I think the Insurgents would benefit from an accessory that costs 1 supply point and makes it able to use all the optics available in the game. I'm talking about a rail attachment to the carry handle, like in the picture below. It would be analogous to the flat-top accessory that both the M16A4 and M4A1 have.
Rail adapter to use EOTech in M16A2 upper.
  • Security team:
    • AEK-971
      • Most of the Security weapons (as well as cosmetics) are western. I think that we could get some modern Russian equipment for the Security forces. I would like to suggest the AN-94, but I think it would be hard to balance, and the AK-74M would bring nothing new. So I think the AEK-971, a modern, fast-firing 5.45x39 mm would be a good addition. For balancing reasons, it should cost 5 supply points.
  • Insurgents team:
    • Colt Model 727 (M16A2 Govt. Carbine)
      • The insurgent advisors would really benefit from having a fast firing 5.56x45 mm weapon. It should be equivalent to the M4A1 stats-wise (rate of fire, damage, firing modes) and I think it could also use the rail accessory suggested for the M16A2. For the devs, it wouldn't be too much work, just having to edit the M16A2 model a little. It should cost 4 supply points.
M16A2 Carbine with rail accessory and an Aimpoint
  • Security team:
    • AWM
      • I don't think the security forces need another Marksman weapon. However, if I have to suggest one, it would be the AWM. It would be more powerful than the M24 and have a box magazine, making its reload time faster. It should cost 3 supply points and be more mobile than the M107A1CQ, although having a slower rate of fire since it is a bolt-action rifle.
  • Insurgents team:
    • SVU-AS
      • This feels to me like a much-needed weapon for the insurgents, being the counterpart to the Mk 14 EBR that the Security team has: it fires 7.62x54 mmR rounds, has a 10-round magazine, and is capable of firing in fully automatic mode. For balancing purposes, it should cost 6 to 7 supply points. Since it already has a kind of suppressor, it should not have any attachments available on the barrel.
  • Security team
    • UMP-45
      • Having recently received new weapons, I don't think we're getting anything for the Breacher class. However, I think the UMP-45 would be a classic addition, costing 4 supply points. I would suggest a semi-automatic shotgun, but I don't think the devs will ever add one (unfortunately).
  • Insurgents team:
    • PP-19
      • The PP-19 is a submachine gun with a high-capacity magazine that fires different 9 mm cartridges. I think the 9x18 mm (Makarov) rounds variant would fit in well for the Insurgents, with a 64 rounds magazine, costing 4 to 5 supply points. (Again, I think it would be nice to have semi-automatic shotguns, but...). A viable alternative would be the compact carbine HK53A3, costing 5 supply points.
  • Security team
    • MG4KE
      • Having a more mobile 5.56 machine gun that is between the M249 and the Galil SAR would be nice. I think the "compact" MG4KE would be nice. Just like the M249, it should cost 3 supply points, having a lower ammo count but more attachment possibilities. Just like the Breacher class, the Gunner class also had recent additions, so this is unlikely to be added.
  • Insurgents team
    • HK21E
      • Basically a belt-fed G3A3. It should be as mobile as the RPK-203 but fire at a slower rate of fire. It should cost 3 supply points. Again, this is unlikely to be added.
Other suggestions
  • New handgun
    • USP or Mk 23
      • A new .45 ACP handgun would surely be welcome. The classic USP or the Mk 23 would be a nice addition to the game. In order to not make the M1911 + Extended Magazine combo unviable, it should cost 4 supply points, having a standard 12 rounds magazine.
USP45 and Mk 23
  • Drum magazine for G3A3, FAL and G36K
    • Most weapons in the game have drum magazines, so I think these weapons could maybe get that attachment as well. I know this could be hard to balance, but it's something to think about. It would be especially fun in co-op.
Honorable Mentions
  • AN-94 (Advisor)
  • M1014 (Breacher)
  • HK53A3 (Breacher)
Tell me what you would like to see!

2023.03.20 20:55 CntrlPttrnDegeneratr Class selection for FYE with AP credits but undecided on major

Hi, I've found so much good info browsing this sub, but I have some questions I haven't found the answers to. I've been accepted to FYE but I don't know what classes to take. I'd appreciate any advice!
I'm truly undecided on major. I'm leaning toward civil, chemical, or mechanical. I'm also interested in biomedical, but I wouldn't choose that as a major -- I would choose something like chem or mech and just take some biomed classes. I don't really enjoy coding (though I have taken some classes and can do it fine), so I won't be choosing ECE, etc. I'm also not into business. I will need to spend 1-2 semesters just figuring out what major I want.
I have 5s on AP tests in Physics 1, Lang, and Chem. I am currently in Calc BC and Physics C. I expect to get good enough scores to get out of Calc 1&2, and Physics 172. I've heard it's wise to take the credit and run, so that's what I'm planning, unless my scores are unexpectedly poor.
I'm pretty disciplined with schoolwork and studying. Although high school hasn't been very challenging, I'm expecting college to kick my ass.
My priorities are: choosing a major; not being tortured by my classes; getting good work experience (I want to do as many internships/co-ops as I can, as soon as I can); getting a dorm with AC; making friends and having fun even though I don't party.
Soooo, finally I get to my questions:
1) I think I want to join an LC (I'm LGBTQ male). Should I choose EPICS or engineering band? I've already decided against doing honors/Goss for various reasons. Which LCs might I enjoy that have dorms with A/C?
2) What FYE courses should I take? If I take AP credit for Chem 115/116, Physics 172, Math 161/162, and Engl 106, what is next? Most people take courses in their major but I don't know what I want. I don't love the idea of taking CS 159 if I won't need it, since I don't enjoy coding all that much. But it's necessary for MechE? I like biology and chemistry, but taking bio or orgo might also be unnecessary. For math, should I just do Calc 3 and linear algebra?
3) What gen ed courses or electives should I take?
4) Have I screwed myself by having credit for almost all the typical first-year courses, yet not knowing what major I want? Are there some courses I can take besides the 131/132 series that will help me with this decision? I'm not great at knowing what I want until I try something out (see: coding).
5) Should I do early start this summer and will that help or make things worse for my decision problems?
6) Is there some type of first-year work experience I can get to help me with this decision? I'm fine with having a part-time job (I do now).
Thank you!

New rig
Got a more permanent fixture for my shelf shack at a local winterfest. Wanted something a little more fiddly than my KX3/PX3. Certainly seems like a nice receiver and I really like that I can work on it myself. It came with all the optional filters, too.

2023.03.20 20:54 Actual-Egg-4205 Explosion simulation errors in rendered view

I'm doing an explosion simulation but no matter what I try my explosion is always either a little blurry, transparent, or just looks off. It even gets blocky and turns completely white when I turn the emission strength up. I baked the simulation at a resolution of 330 and even 512 to see if a higher resolution would fix anything, however the errors remained regardless of how detailed the simulation was. I've tried messing around with volumetric shading a little but it always ends up not looking right, even with no nodes enabled. What can I do to make it look right?

2023.03.20 20:53 Minimum-Bee-5680 Get me out of my contract

I’m signed with a good agency here in LA for model & talent 5-6months ago. I have been self submitting on casting networks and actors access. I get to audition/self-tape 3-5 times a week. Only booked one music video in these months being signed with my own submissions.
Now, every photographers I meet they say that the agent is not good (there’s a lot of hearsay about my current agent) I feel the same way as well, when I text him he only response to me one word and with mean attitude. He really only handles men based on what I see on his IG. I’m trans and I feel like he doesn’t know what to do with me being the only trans on the roster right now. All the call backs I’ve gotten is all from my submissions. And people that I know in the industry finds it weird that my agent hasn’t sent me somewhere for castings.
I have a 2 year exclusive contract with my current agency. I was transferred to my current agent because my old agent (same agency) moved to New York division so I was passed along with this new one 4 months ago. I’m not sure if he’s even submitting me for breakdowns I don’t see.
How did you get out of your agency? How would you go about my situation?
Thank you!

2023.03.20 20:52 tikudz First three causes are worldwide as experts attest, rest locally specific - trinidad crime

First three causes are worldwide as experts attest, rest locally specific.
  1. POVERTY AND LOW WAGES - exacerbated by high cost of living in COVID's pandemic. 300.000 at mercy of the "poverty line" years, this oil rich land. A man's belly drives him to misdeed, unable to socially progress nor live humanely, all the while stressed.
  2. FAMILY - a forthright examination pegs this. More attention from authorities is warranted
  3. MENTAL HEALTH – nary anyone in power brings up its role. Would like a ministry of “mental health and loneliness.” COVID drove Japan that way, a low crime state no less.
  4. DRUG SMUGGLING – the ONE PERCENT ship in vast amounts as intercepted shipments attest. TT is a transhipment point. They bring the drugs people use and guns young, disadvantaged black males die from, the “law” disproportionally targets, unable to so much as prosecute one of the upper class.
  5. FAILURE TO FULLY DECRIMINALIZE – i.e. light and heavy, in the class of weed and cocaine respectively. JAIL SHOULD BE EXCLUDED AS A POSSIBILITY FOR USING. Weed simply regulated and casual smoking permitted, cocaine has REHAB and WELFARE open to the vulnerable.
  6. POOR EDUCATION SYSTEM – “outdated” sufficient appendix too. The British system is DESIGNED TO MAKE FACTORY WORKERS UNWILLING TO THINK FOR THEMSELVES SERVING THE EMPLOYER CLASS. Cuts in education bound to leave their mark in addition. CANADA is the world’s highest proportion of tertiary graduates in a population – brought on by high expenditure. Would like a FINLAND model – school equality; master’s degree for teachers; relaxed atmosphere; no homework (as a school counsellor told me); end of SEA and all standardised tests save for 17 year olds; subsidized day-care.
  7. HARSH PRISON – as things stand are criminal schools. REHAB must be at the forefront. NORWAY provides living comforts; prisoner education from trade skill to degree; good behaviour rewards that are EARNED; 2 year guard training; what’s more POST RELEASE SOCIAL WELFARE PROGRAMS.
  8. OVERCROWDED PRISONS – 7 speaks for itself. 5 would reduce the number. Reform the law such that prison is ONLY FOR THE HEAVY CRIMES, ALL minor offenses made non imprisonable – those people released at once. ALTERNATIVES TO PRISON the norm like home detention and scalable fines (size determined by wealth).
  9. POORLY TRAINED POLICE – end the joke of 6 months. NORWAY’S undergo a journey of three years to a BACHELOR DEGREE. Leadership roles require an extra 2 to a MASTER’S. TTPS’ disregard for assault complaints and tendency for criminality does not need explanation.
  10. Coast Guard's training must be more robust - make as America's. The US Coast Guard Academy at FOUR years, awarding a Bachelor of Science degree.
In short reform.

2023.03.20 20:45 Eleganos A technical, non-moralist breakdown of why the rich will not, and cannot, kill off the poor via a robot army.

Preface/TLDR: My arguments below aren't based wholly in some nebulous belief in human goodness.
I accept the shitty realities of human civilisation, even as someone who does try to see the bright side of life.
However, those are by and large evils caused by malicious negligence in some cases, and scrupulous selfish opportunism in other.
Neither of which would be present in a 'kill the normies' plan.
Rich people do not see themselves as a collective in-group, and they are not want to sink God knows how much of their hard earned resources into making an army of Death bots when their collaborators could rat on them at any time and initiate a corporate takeover or monopoly thanks to their no longer existent competition. Or to satisfy some petty personal vendetta. Or get good pr. Or any other number of immediately gratifying selfish reasons that, while screwing over the majority's plans for global genocide, would dramatically improve the life of whoever screwed them over.
Rich people are not known for being cooperative team players.
The 'cull the poores' scenario isn't plausible for solely moral reasons. It is just impossible on a technical and logistical level.
To elaborate...
I'm not denying rich are shitty, and I won't deny some places have it bad, or that some rich people WOULD kill the poor if they could.
I just deny the sheer ludicrous scale of what would be needed to formulate, prepare, and execute a 'kill the normies' plan.
It assumes that...
  1. Rich people possess the capability to unite, coordinate, and execute this plan simaltaneously
This first hurdle is what really makes it impossible since, even assuming the other points I'll mention are met, the rich would need to operate a collected unified front with perfect synchronicity and no opportunism backstabbing or short sightedness for the plan to work.
If it isn't synchronized, it gives the human race a chance to see the knife being drawn and do something before the rich try to thrust it into us.
If there's backstabbing, namely infighting, it'd Drain their resources AND give us that moment of realization in one. Assuming the plan isn't just killed in its infancy or that they don't mutual kill each other in some sort of wealthy civil war.
If there's incompetence on their end, say they get sloppy and the CIA finds out about the rich illuminati planning on killing us all. Or they recruit Elon Musk and he decides to betray them all so he can stoke his ego by being remembered in history as the man who saved humanity, or they fuck up and their killer robots/AGI become free before the butchery can begin, then they'll just be fucked.
And that'll be it. The moment we find out they tried and failed to kill us all enough people will be pissed off and willing to throw hands that they won't get another shot.
  1. All rich people, without exception, are willing and eager to murder all non rich people.
Rich people are disproportionately evil. They are not universally evil.
This is a statistical reality.
Even if there's only 1% out of them all who have working moral compasses and would not be down for the mass genocide, when we're talking about what would need to be a global conspiracy, that's more than enough for one of them to be recruited into the conspiracy, or otherwise learn of it through other means, and utilize their resources and political power to counteract it.
Even if only, as I pointed out with my Elon Musk example, to assert themselves as the neo messiah/s who saved humanity from the other, evil rich people.
  1. Rich people would require the logistics to enact this mass culling.
Hundreds of millions of murder bots don't just pop out of thin air. Unless the rich are using nanotechnology or bioweapons to do the culling, they'd need whole factories producing advanced robots, weapons, munitions, supply chains, ecetera. All of which would be glaringly obvious unless they had some bonkers tech to just completely wipe all evidence of this buildup from the face of the earth. And at that point they might as well use that same tech to just increase their power in the current system and steal from the other rich to become that much richer that much quicker.
Billions of people equals trillions of bullets, trillions of microchips, metrics fucktons of steel and plastic and circuitry and God knows what else. It requires hundreds of factories and dozens of shipping route configurations to transfer materials between them all
And this is all without getting into where the fuck they're storing these murder robots/drones to begin with. You can't exactly hide a fighting force big enough to literally end 90% of the human race in a couple of warehouses. You'd need a whole city's worth of storage at the absolute bare minimum. Assuming they sprang for exclusively compact drones and not the outright terminators lots of people seem to be imagining.
  1. Governments would need to do nothing.
I'm not even arguing 'governments will protect the people!' I'm arguing 'If this can be done, the American government and military industrial complex will just do it first.'
Because I can actually buy the American government, for example, hashing out the logistics, the coordination, and enacting the plan with the motive of imperialism and enforcing an authoritarian peace/rule over the planet.
At the least, if the tech existed to just churn out robot armies, en-mass, first world nations would be building up artificial fighting forces with that tech to levels comparable to the rich's secret army of Doom. Armies that would definitely be used to achieve zero casualty precision military campaigns in foreign lands. In regions that had been previously unconquearble due to the death toll, morale tax, and corruption issues in previous attempts at subjugation.
If nothing else, this would be a litmus test and a big red flag to anyone with half a brain and ability to discern the consequences of it.
Especially if it came out that rich people were churning these killer robots out en mass for 'reasons'.
And all this is without asking what happens when some poorer governments who weren't let in on the plan and subverted by the rich (under the logic of 'fuck em, they're poor, who gives a shit') turn out to have secretly squirrels away a few nukes. With which they could enact a forced peace under M.A.D or ruin the days of the perpetrators who caused this shitstorm as a final middle finger.
  1. Rich people would actually need to be motivated to do all of this.
Rich people in this scenario are essentially the illuminati, with full control over all governments, the ability to magic up a world ending army out of thin air, and all done in complete cooperation with each other with a single Game of Thrones backstabbing waiting in the rafters.
At that point...why do they need to kill the poor...
Like, what do the actually gain from it?
More land?
More resources?
They can get infinite of both. And could kick anyone they wanted dout of their land at a moment's notice.
To get more money? To rid themselves of the proles?
There are easier ways to do the former now that they basically own the planet from the shadows with their secret army of Doom, and if they kill all the poors then they aren't rich anymore. Their lives literally wouldn't change other than them being on the same level as each other, which when considering all the egomaniacs amongst them...would not end well...
This whole scheme would be more trouble than it'd be worth. Yes, most rich entities are shitty and commit crimes. But, if you'll notice, they haven't exactly been taking over any countries single-handedly as of late. Or trying to overthrow their own nations. Because it's more headache than it's worth. Why risk everything for a plan that wouldn't really personally enrich you all that much.
Cause remember: they all have to share their 'winnings'amongst themselves after rthe normies are dead. And if there's one thing thing the rich hate. It's sharing.
  1. They need to be perfectly fair and generous and cordial to each other once all is said and done.
So, 1% of humanity is left alive. All of them rich and whoever else those rich might want to keep around.
They now have to 'divvy the spoils'.
In what world does this not end with them turning on each other at the end so they can 'win more?
They've already illustrated an insanity beyond anything previously demonstrated din the history of the human race. The butchery of the whole species just so they can be the kings of skull mountain.
Except they aren't the kings yet. Oh no, there's still thousands of lesser rich people trying to hog that land and money.
And so, with no more external enemies left to unite them, they'd do what humans have done time and time again in comparable historical situations: turn on one another.
At which point they're liable to just end up wiping each othe Rout.
So even in a scenario where, by some absolute ridiculous miracle they 'win', they've still not won just yet.
And if they've not killed off all the poors. If a few thousand survived through the 8000 separate one-in-a-million chances that occurred throughout the cull of 8 billion, and if the rich deplete themselves enough over their mutual fights with one another, thinking themselves fre eof any other potential threat, then the proles might yet get their win.
So even in the perfect, impossible scenario where they win. The proves have an equal, if not more enjoyable win condition for the aftermath of the global cull.
In conclusion: I don't say this scenario is dumb because I'm a hopeful optimistic who has unwavering faith in human goodness (though I won't deny it either)
It's just not a plausible scenario that's feasible outside of a dystopian sci-fi novel.
If you like theory crafting it, or you enjoy thinking up ways it could happen and debating over them, then you do you.
Just be honest about the fantasy that is this scenario.
It's not going to happen.
And if you really thought it was going to, then you'd be a fool for seeing it coming not actively working on an escape plan so you can be one of the one-in-a-million lucky survivor's who'd slip through the cracks.
That's basically everything I've to say on this.
I await the inevitable responses on how I'm dumb and wrong and I gladly anticipate the voices of those who concur or otherwise have something new to add to the discussion.
(This post is not a personal attack on anyone, just the bad take. It is not meant to insult or denigrate any parties.)

2023.03.20 20:43 Eternity_Rose Can I move from zero social skill to being equally social as "normal" person?

(there is going to be a bit of sensitive topic about bad upbringing, do not read if you are not in a mood for that)
I have just recently found this community and youtube chanel and felt like it is suitable place to vent and maybe seek some piece of advice.
How to start learning social skills as an adult? And is it possible to make such a progress to be like someone extraverted or just so no one will think that I am shy or antisocial? Is it possible to reduce damage done in childhood to function like "normal" person? Story below:
So, I am a female and I'm going to be 21 years old soon. I have never been taught as a child how to socialise and you can probably imagine seeing other kids for the first time when I was 6 years old did not went too well. I made about 4 friendships in my life, 3 of them online.
My parents made every possible parenting mistake they could that did not involve being physically violent. I never really talked about anything personal with my parents. They didn't know my interests or even what kind of music I do like until I was around 19. For a very long time I was afraid of telling anyone my interests because everything I heard was; why won't you do math instead of X, why don't you read other book instead of the one you just picked. Or why are you litening to this kind of music, it is bad etc... I was not allowed to do any physical activities. They were interested only in my grades really.
Right now I have contact with two people; my boyfriend and sometimes my best friend from highschool. It feels underwhelming when I realise it. I always wanted to have friends and talk to people but never knew how. Most of my interactions with others ended up as me being bullied when I was younger. I heard "advices" from my family such as; if you were super good in math, like you would win a national math competition, then everyone would like you (literally these words).
So I always thought that if you will be very well-read and will have many interests then you will know what to say to other people, and they will be absolutelly amazed by your wisdom, and will become your friends. Unfortunatelly this is not true. Most people do not have such profound knowedge to engage in conversations about things I research. I ended up with lot of hobbies but still zero social skill. And I feel I acquired most of my knowedge just because I thought it is necessary to form a relationship of any kind with others.
I can not start a conversation, I don't even know what people talk about. Also it does not help that I am pretty much expressionless and don't hold eye contact. I try to look at other person whenever I remember that it should be done. However when I start talking my eyes just do whatever.
Right now I socialise mostly in college and it is not very bad. I think everyone likes me. However, no one is my friend. I only talk about topics related to our field of research. And I feel like this is the only thing I can talk about. I can give people lectures or tell them about books. But you can't build friendship over it. No one will care for me as a person if I never speak to them about personal things such as everyday life.

I think this posts belongs here, not in the thread because it is not about romantic relationship and is also about reversing the damage done in early life.

2023.03.20 20:43 Stojokes Potential Emblem Arval Skillset

I had a lot of fun making a potential skillset for Emblem Shez (which you can read here if you want) and made another one for Emblem Arval cuz Three Hopes brainrot never left me. These skills and weapons may be busted or really bad, I just wrote down whatever I thought sounded cool and accurate to the character.
Bond/Engage Skills:
-Bond Skill "Duality": At the start of odd turns, grants unit Def/Res+3. On even turns, grants Atk/Mag+3.
"Duality+ and ++": grants Def/Res+4-5 and Atk/Mag+4-5 [Qi Adept] also grants bonus to adjacent ally with the highest HP [Dragon] also grants Atk/Mag+1-3 on odd turns and Def/Res+1-3 on even turns.
-Bond Skill "Agarthan Arcana": If foe initiates combat, units deals 25% of damage taken to foes and enemies within 2 spaces of foe after combat. Minimum 1 damage. (Inheritable)
-Bond Skill "Cycle Keeper": When units HP drops below 30%, completely fill the engage meter. Has a three turn cooldown.
"Cycle Keeper+, ++, and +++": increases threshold to 30%, 35%, and 40% respectively.
-Engage Skill "Metamorphosis": While engaged, doubles the effects of units personal skill or increases its range by 1 (so Not Quite grants Avo+20, Generosity now applies to allies within 2 spaces, etc.)
-Engage attack "Rite of Souls": Use to attack an opponent within range and heal both unit and adjacent allies for 50% of the damage dealt. If this attack defeats an opponent, unit and adjacent allies are also granted Def/Res+4 for 1 turn. Range 1-2 [Mystical] increases area of effect by 1
Engage Weapons:
-Miasma Δ: Basic black magic. Range 1-3
-Luna Λ: An extremely heavy tome with only a single point of Mt, ignores half of enemy Res. Range 1-2
-Hrotti: A mysterious relic wielded by Emblem Arval, calculates damage using the higher of units Atk or Mag. Range 1-2
Extra Inheritable skills/proficiencies:
-Vigilant Gaze 1-4: grants Hit+10-25 to unit and inflicts Dodge -5-20 on opponent during combat.
-Tome Proficiency
-Staff Proficiency

2023.03.20 20:43 Bromeo-and-Juliet New job opportunity, what would you do?

Hello everyone, I’m stuck at making a decision and I wanted to hear other people’s opinions. Sorry if it reads terribly.
25 year old engaged male on a deployment overseas with the military. No major bills other than my car payment.
Back home I currently work for one of the top 100 fortune 500 companies but doing manual labor making about $22.50/hr. I have amazing benefits atleast from what I know. They will pay 100% tuition to nearly any school, 40 hrs sick, 80 hrs vacation. Retirement. Tons of other benefits. I work 36 hrs a week but get paid for 40. 3 day work week, 12 hrs back to back to back. Hour long drive to work at 4 am, hour long drive back at 6pm. It's rough. My coworkers are cut throat, and will brag about ruining other peoples lives. There is a lot of room for growth in the company, but it’s currently a very toxic work environment. I'm constantly stressed and do not enjoy it. But the job itself is very easy and not physically demanding.
I have a federal opportunity with my unit back home. $25/hr with guaranteed raises but little room for growth. Decent benefits as far as I know, and about the same hour long drive to work. 4 day work week. Some days are 10 hours long but a lot of days if there isn't much work they just do a half day. Still get paid the full day. Extremely healthy work environment but a bit more physically taxing. The biggest problem is that I lose my amazing Tricare healthcare and will have to go with blue cross blue shield which will cost nearly 5x as much, and will have a deductible unlike Tricare, which is amazing.
If i stay with my current position, I could milk my 100% tuition, go to college and get a degree in 4-5 years, while also getting an extra 4 hours off work each week as a benefit to going to school full time, and use my GI bill from the military to also pay me while going to school. Not sure how much that would get me but I know it would be nice.
Maybe the answer is obvious to you, but I'm stuck. Do I stay somewhere and ultimately be unhappy with my job position for the next 4 years possibly? Or do I go somewhere I know I will actually enjoy being? I'm open to any and all criticism/advice/questions/complaints.
Thanks for reading

2023.03.20 20:43 SaucySamurai959 My Collection

My Collection
By popular demand of some fellow redditors, posting my collection. Theme is, ofcourse racing colors. So, as far as possible I try and get only real cars, no uninteresting family sedan type stuff unless they're the sport version, and in their national racing colors. The sets are how they're displayed on shelf at home, but for this list on a carpet. Video and photo are not permissible in same post (eithe or) so I've posted links to the video of each set in below text.
Set 1: JDM in Racing Whites
Don't simply haven't been released in clean white, so I didn't include carded ones awaiting exchange for right color (Scion FR-S in red, Datsun 620 pickup, etc), but I've been hypocritical with the Evo's both in the red.
Video link Set 1
Set 1B: JDM Anime- Initial D
Scale is not 1:64 for these, and colors are per the OG series, hence separate from JDM set. I did have the blue custom Devil Z from Wangan Midnight, but the logos on front fenders don't make it clean enough.
Set 2: ze Germans Racing Silver (/ White?)
Missing some, like the Größer Mercedes 600 Pullman in black 1:64 from the museum shop and the Audi 80 Quattro in white get and red and an E36 M3 in blue that I just forgot to include. Also, colors are widely off bcoz Germany traditionally raced in white until Audi and Benz tried weight savings and made it silver. BMW and Porsche continued in white but then BMW also had some striking blues for their M road cars. 🤷🏽‍♂️
Video link Set 2
Set 3: Forza Italia in Rosso Corsa
I missed a couple in the original photo and video (Centenario coupe and convertible) and an off- color black 8C Competizione. Hvnt snagged a red Lancia Delta, so it's just a matter of waiting for price drops from scalpers.
Video link Set 3
Set 4: "The Good Guys"
Batmobiles (still in cards because awaiting 1:64 scale diecasts), but also A-Team, Knight Rider. Sold off the James Bond collection after really getting bored of the Corgi models quality. First Responders and some very American randoms that go on the same display shelf
Video link Set 4
Set 5: Brits in Racing Greens
Frustrating that they don't release the majority in the right color, but I try. McLarens ofcourse in the burnt orange corporate racing colors is excused, since the OG guy, Bruce was Kiwi.

Set 6: American Supers (White with Blue racing Stripes or vice versa)
Supertrucks: would've liked to have a Red-White-Blue theme (Ram Rebel-Silverado Trailboss-F150 Raptor) but the Silverado in white has too many logos and no clean sheet metal release. So it's still carded awaiting exchange if/when possible.
Tesla: EVs are fast, so they're included here since they technicality can't be on any other shelf and I don't collect the family car stuff. Also awaiting the 2023 Model Y diecast to complete the S3XY cars theme.
Got rid of the Callaway C7 since it never actually won anything, but Saleen and Panoz still on.
Video link Set 6
Set 7: American Iron
Both pony cars and muscle cars are included here.
I've tried to line them the way I display on the shelf with for example the Camaros facing the Mustangs, the Gulf liveried brand from each, the El Camino v Ranchero, and even the NASCAR Monte Carlo SS v Ford Fusion.
GM ofcourse simply had more brands and models for the muscle cars whereas Ford has released a lot more of its Mustangs.
While AMC really had only 1 entry each with the Javelin and Rebel respectively, I've included them near the Chrysler cars since they did eventually buy the company.
Then, at the rear is a bunch of 1-and-done models.

The saga is ongoing. Lots of updates. Lots of flowery language. Cheerleading.
I'll post the 32 OP posts in comments so save you all going through the whole thread if you're not MN members. Eta - couldn't add as a comment so here's the longest post ever.
The saga is ongoing.
He has run off with the kids, advice needed and handhold 32 replies Iamworthit · 05/03/2023 09:30
Posting for traffic. Apologies, its long.
Some might remember my previous threads. Basically I separated from my controlling ex in February. Things moved really quickly. And I managed to find a house. I moved out on Thursday. Instead of taking the kids out whilst I moved to make it less distressing for them which we had previously agreed, he stayed and made me take all my stuff out in front of them, and put it into the front garden. My friend and her children came over to help load her car up with my stuff. As awful as it was I stayed strong for the kids, they were excited about the new house, their new bedrooms and where choosing which toys to bring as well as playing with their friends in the front garden. Once my stuff was out (not much, he refused i take any furniture), he demanded my keys back, demanded the kids go inside, and literally pulled my 4 year old away from me, she was screaming and crying. He slammed the door in my face and shut the curtains. In hindsight I should have called the police then, believe me I realise that now. However i was trying to cause as least stress as possible. Due to previous advice on here I have recorded him on multiple occasions. I recorded the children Thursday morning whilst they were playing whilst I was moving my stuff out. You can see my stuff in the front garden and the kids happy and playing. When he took my daughter off me and put the other two inside and slammed the door on me, I started recording then too. You can clearly see and hear my daughter screaming behind the door , (part frosted glass door) and him pulling her as she's holding onto the front door handle from the inside. You can also hear him say you will see mummy tomorrow. Him and I had agreed that they would come to my new house on Friday morning whilst he goes to work. He has been using my past mental health against me, (see previous threads, I will try to link,) since I told him I wanted to separate, he wanted me to provide him a letter from a medical professional saying im sane 🙄. My cpn is dicharging me next week, so he will have that on paper - i know i dont have to do that but I will send him a copy because i have nothing to hide. On Thursday afternoon he phones me asking when will I be giving him half the child benefit. I tell him I am arranging mediation and we can discuss it there as he keeps ranting at me down the phone. So, Friday morning comes around. I message to double check what time he is dropping them over. I get back one message saying the kids are safe, I'm not taking any calls. He then ignores my texts and calls. I got round to his house and the car is gone, the curtains are drawn. He has done a runner with the kids! I phoned police and social services. As we have only just separated there is no child arrangements order in place. I'm absoloutely heartbroken. I've never known pain like it. They are 1, 4 and 6. They spend the majority of the time with me. Nearly 4 years ago he built and insulated a shed in the bottom of the garden. He has slept out there 99% of the time since. Leaving me to do all night time childcare since then. The girls who are 4 and 6 sleep in the bedroom next to me, the 4 year old wakes almost every night and comes and spends the rest of the night with me. My one year old has been in my bed since birth, what must my poor babies be thinking? He also works part time where I have the children on my own. The 4 and 6 year old are homeschooled. I take them to all activities and clubs and play dates etc. I know this is 100% about control, that he is using the children to try to break me so that his "she's an unstable mother" claims come true. I am 100% confident in my ability to parent my children. I am 100% confident that there is no issue with me, infact I've never felt stronger, my mh has never been better. That's why I knew I had to leave, because I knew I could be a strong single mother to my beautiful babies and I didn't want them witnessing his toxic behaviour any more. I will not have my children growing up thinking his behaviour is acceptable. I have a solicitors appointment Monday morning at 9am. All services have been informed, mediation is booked for 2 weeks time. I have phoned the police 4 times since Friday, who advise its a civil matter. I have spoken to social services who have said I'm doing everything right and have contacted every one I need to. I have even contacted universal credit. I believe part of the reason he has taken the children is because he won't receive the child element of universal credit anymore. He has Been begging for half the child benefit which thankfully is in my name. I was receiving pip due to my previous mental health issues, and he claimed carers element in universal credit. Obviously now I've moved out, and said he isn't my carer since we split, he doesn't get that anymore. He was only having to work part time because of this, despite claiming to be my carer, I was doing the vast majority of child care and household chores, whilst he slept in the shed so his sleep wasn't disturbed.
I have never felt pain like this. Being away from my children and wondering what they must be thinking, why they aren't seeing me, what he's filled their heads with is breaking my heart. I know and I will be strong and get through this short time until the courts decide on child arrangements. I'm also realistic about the fact that he could keep them until that date, in which case it could be at least a month before I see them again. Even when I had pnd 4 years ago, I went to a mbu with my daughter, they knew it was imperative that she be with me. I did end up being sectioned but my medication was adjusted and I made a rapid recovery. I was allowed to leave early from the section and even then all my children were allowed to visit me in the family room next to the unit as everyone knew how important it was they and I have regular contact. I was never a danger to my children, I just felt that I wasn't good enough to be their mother. However I've worked hard on myself, I am fully recovered. I engaged in all therapy, took the medication properly and came off it under their advice. I look after myself because I know that to be a good mother to my kids I need to be good to myself. I since have had my 1 year old and there's been no issues at all. Infact as 'my carer' he never once phoned any services or teams on me with any concerns regarding my mental health in an extremely long time, years, So there is also evidence of this.
I have my furniture being delivered today, the girls Bunk beds and sofa, tables etc. I will make this house a special and safe home for my babies, where they feel respected and loved.
I'm sorry for the huge post. Please if anyone has any more advice on what I can do, Or any questions for the solicitor appointment tomorrow I would so appreciate it. I need all the support and advice I can get. Thankyou

Stay strong. Are his family involved? Would ex mil speak to him . Awful situation for you op x
Nope, no one is answering or responding. I have absoloutely no idea where they have gone. My guess is he's spoken to a solicitor and they've told him he is legally with in his rights to take the kids as he has parental responsibility and there is no court order in place

Unfortunately, having gone through the same thing with a family member, this is correct and there is nothing the police can do.
@Iamworthit you need to download a C100 form and submit it to your local family Court for an emergency hearing to have the children returned to your care as soon as possible. This group were invaluable in guiding us through the process from the children being taken to getting a Child Arrangement Order in place. You sound like you are doing everything right

CalamityClam · 05/03/2023 10:19
Hold tight. My ex did the same thing. I had to leave without them. The DCs were safe with him even though I knew he was an absolute controlling TWAT - I knew they’d be upset, but I knew they’d be safe. I did everything you’re doing, determined to have it sorted legally so he couldn’t do it again, even if it meant waiting to see them. Believe me, the novelty will soon wear off for him when he realises he’s stuck with the kids and you’re as free as a bird.
It resolved for me quite quickly- within a couple of weeks. We shared care going forward. The DCs are adults now and have a very distant relationship with their dad.
So reassuring to speak to someone who has been through this and there was a positive outcome. I haven't spoken to them at all or seen them since Thursday morning, this is the longest its been. I'm assuming he has gone to his parents over an hour away. The police managed to get hold of him today and will be doing a welfare check tonight or tomorrow. They can't give me his wareabouts. Im terrified my kids are going to forget me, especially the one year old, other than a handful of nights where he agreed to have him for a night or 2 whilst I visited friends/ family, he's always been with me. And what if he turns them against me. I'm so scared they will think I've abandoned them and hate me or forget me. It could be weeks before a court hearing. Can a 1 year old Remember that long. I don't know.

Take a deep breath and step back OP. My ex pulled this stunt more than once and the judge awarded me full custody and him none because DS was so traumatised by him. It took a while but it was ok. Well done for recording it. Your solicitor will advise you.
How long did he keep your son away from you for? I'm so scared they will forget me x

macncheeeesey · 05/03/2023 12:34
He's trying to punish you and unfortunately you have to abide by the system.
He will likely realise how hard it is very soon and won't be able to keep up with the homeschooling and caring for three little ones - especially as you say he sleeps in a shed normally.
Use this time to make the house a home for them. You can apply for an emergency family hearing - I'm sure your solicitor has advised on that.
He's an evil man who is damaging your kids but he won't be able to keep them. You've done everything you need to and informed the right people.
Try to distract yourself and use this time to work on your plan of attack to get them back and get yourself right.
My ex took our DD and wouldn't give her back but did eventually. Police wouldn't get involved after they did one welfare check. I would call them and ask them to do a check and say he is mentally unstable and you're worried about the kids. This will be logged and hopefully will scare him a bit.
I know the feeling, my DD wanted to come back but ex wouldn't let her. When she did some back she was super clingy. She knew what her dad did was wrong.
You've got this and you'll get them back.
I'm sorry you went through this too. How old was your daughter when he did that? How long was she away from you for. I'm scared they will hate me, god knows what he's telling them about why they can't see me

Presumably he was taking care of them while she was sectioned so whilst he may not look after them when she’s gone he clearly can.
He looked after 1 dc then, not 3. He has become increasingly abusive since then
No, he went to work when I was in the mother and baby unit with my 2nd daughter. My mum and mil took it in turns to look after our eldest and he would look after her when not at work. Even when i went away for a couple of kights for my friends wedding my mum came to help him look after the kids

Op I would also strongly advise you to contact women’s aid after your appointment with the solicitor, they will offer some much needed support and advice. I did this a few weeks ago and I just got an email back with endless other support agencies, solicitors to call.

Snatches children like some mad man on the street. Or a father having his children for the weekend or maybe even being the resident parent.
With this whole women and men are equal they are aLeo equal parents 🥱. He text saying they were safe and he would not be taking her calls. Police have been called 4! Times and don’t seem to think there is any issue. Op willingly left them on the Thursday.
Im sure op will hear find out more Monday morning but nothing makes her the better or more superior parent in the eyes of the law currently.
The police got back to me today. They are doing a welfare check tonight or tomorrow. I didn't Willingly leave them on Thursday. I left them heartbroken, not wanting to cause any more distress and with a stupid idea he would do the right thing and give them to me the next day as planned.

I am so sorry you are going through this OP. The pain is like nothing else.
I have been in the same position as you and, unfortunately, as you have probably found, The Police have no powers if the father has parental rights. They say it is a civil matters for the courts.
All I can say is that this will massively go against him in family court proceedings- it did for my estranged husband. He was banned from having our child overnight for a considerable amount of time until he could prove he was trustworthy again. The courts and professionals also named that he was using our child as a emotional weapon towards me by doing this. Your husband will be viewed in exactly the same way by all involved. He isn't thinking about the children at all, he is thinking about himself and getting one over on you.
Brilliant that you have a solicitors appointment tomorrow, they will give you the advice you need.
Stay strong and get that child arrangements order in place💐
I really hope they do the same. I'm sorry you had to go through this too. It so incredibly cruel and unfair to the children.

Probably because it doesn't meet the criteria. The children are with their Dad, there's nothing to suggest they're at risk. Just because their Mum doesn't know where they are doesn't mean there's anything wrong.
The other thing is the police will look at the history of the family in assessing things. They've been called out before because the OP was threatening self harm. She's still currently under a MH section & despite being told its not a Police matter has phoned numerous times today. Regardless of what anyone here thinks they'll make the assessment based on the information they have, which from the sounds of it possibly doesn't look great for the OP. AND the other thing is, we only know OPs version of events. I'm not saying they're not accurate but we have absolutely no way of knowing
Police don't do a welfare check just because someone wants them to, there has to be grounds.
If for instance they don't turn up at school tomorrow that would have things reassessed.
Even if officers did go out to the house tonight & noone was home they're not going to turn it into a misper enquiry at this stage.
Show quote history The police were never phoned with regards to my mental health. I always went through the proper channels with the perinatal team. Yes I did have the crisis team involved but that was 4 YEARS AGO. I was in a mother and baby unit and the medication they gave me to treat it was to low a dose. I was always with my daughter at the mbu. I got sectioned 4 years ago, and once there, my dd went back to the family home with her dad. My mum and mil also took it turns to stay with them for extra support. My section was supposed to last 28 days. I was released at day 14 due responding so well to the medication. I had been observed with my children by the nurses and Dr's theres (yes I still got to see my kids, and kept breastfeeding her and pumping the whole time) even during that period I have never been away from the kids for this long. Everyone in my care knew I was a brilliant mother, I have documents from being there. I struggling with pnd, and never a harm to my children. We were very much bonded, I just felt absolutely not good enough to be their mother. I have engaged with services at every single point along the way. I since had another baby - the one year old, and I was put under the perinatal mental health team again for precaution, but due to me doing really well during that pregnancy my contact with them was very little and the discharged me a year after birth with a plan to come off my medication, which I have done. Even after all this I'm still strong because I know I have to be there for my kids when I do get them back they will need me more than ever. Yes he was claiming carers allowance. However he hasn't phoned any mental health team in years with any concerns about me. He is trying to gaslight me to say that he has concerns, well than why as he only just raised concerns since I told him I was leaving ? Thankfully this is all fact and documented. My cpn has been phoned by my ex regularly since for the last few weeks since I said I'm leaving. My cpn has received calls from my ex and his family claiming I needed a welfare check. I arranged for my cpn to see me, who agreed that I'm fit and well and will be discharged this week. My cpn told me he said to the mil that they are all wasting his time and to stop calling him. My cpn visited me on Friday when I phoned him to say my ex had taken the children, he came over straight away, and is still satisfied I can be discharged. I've had a traumatic childhood, pnd was almost inevitable I've been told, however I have worked bloody hard on myself and am a credit to my children. Any one else reading this thread in the future who has to go through similar, please do not let posters like this wear you down. I have had PREVIOUS mental health issues. My mental health now is better than its ever been.

Hopefully be seen by the court today 🙏 With a predicted respond date by Friday from him. I don't know when this means I will get them back, but at least the ball is rolling She will also put in a Prohibited Steps Order to stop him from changing their gp, Registering them for school, or taking them abroad.

I have no actual knowledge of the Court system in these circumstances or anything helpful to say but I just wanted you to know that I have read the whole thread and I think you are incredibly brave and strong. I think lots of people would have crumpled at this and maybe gone back to him or just broken down. Well done, keep fighting, hope it is all over soon.
Thankyou. Don't get me wrong I've sobbed huge tears of grief this weekend and been full of panic and worry, one thing I will not do is let him break me. My kids need the best version of me right now, and so that's my focus x
Go to post Iamworthit · 06/03/2023 19:25
Another update Not so great. He also did a Prohibited Steps Order. So the judge received them both today. They decided to see us together but the quickest available date is on the 21st of March! I've seen a copy of his order and requests. He wants me to admit I'm unstable. He wants confirmation from mh professionals I'm OK. It looks like he says I can have Supervised contact and calls. So obviously yes I'll take anything I can get, but need solicitor to confirm this. Also made allegations about how "unstable" I am. That I'm a suicide risk, that I've done x,y,z... BUT there's no record of him phoning my gp or cpn or anything, so hopefully that can quash that! He also keeps phoning my cpn telling him he is going for custody or he is giving me the order, or he is hiding away with the kids... So obvious he wants me to crack in front of the cpn. With regards to my cpn he is telling me he is putting my case to the team for discharge tomorrow, there is a chance they won't agree, and with the luck I'm having atm I'm beginning to think that they are going to say they won't discharge me.
Thanks for all the support. I really appreciate everything you ladies have said. I will update tomorrow with any news.

Just for my own understanding, why do you need supervised visits?
Show quote history I don't. He is claiming I'm mentally unstable and a flight risk because he's a controlling, pathetic excuse of a man. He vanished with the kids and put an application for a Prohibited Steps Order that I can't have the children back until he sees a letter from a medical professional to state otherwise.

Hi ladies. My cpn came over today. He isn't going to discharge me for another few weeks. This is positive, because it means he can tell the courts/judge that he is having the most recent interactions with me and there for can give an honest and open account of how I am. He phoned My solicitor personally and she agreed this would help my case. He has written a letter for this interim period to say he has no concerns. My solicitor believes if he with holds supervised visits before the court date he will be doing himself no favours at all. My cpn also told me that in his notes he has written that in his professional opinion my ex is mentally unstable (he has been pestering my cpn every few days for the past few weeks, since I told him I wanted to leave, however not once in over 3 years before I wanted to split was he concerned). Also that he is bring coercive, he is controlling, and the fact he sleeps in a shed 🤣🤣!! My cpn has Been brilliant throughout this whole thing. It's a case of playing the long game at the moment, I can't do anything to jeopardise seeing my kids. This is night 7. I last saw them a week ago tomorrow at around 11. I will not let him break me. He is using every tactic he can think of.

The update about your CPN is fantastic. You are doing everything right. I think you're amazing, and all of this will be working in your favour. Maybe once all of this is over, they will insist on supervised visits only for him! How's the house coming along? Charity shops and the British heart foundation furniture shops are great for filling up a house xx
Thankyou. Yes my cpn has been great! Every second that goes by is another second without seeing my children, but it's also one second closer to getting them back in My arms.
Today marks a whole week since I last saw, held, played with, cuddled or even talked to my beautiful babies.

UPDATE So, I got to see them this weekend!!! Supervised with my mum present at his request, but after 9 long days I finally got to see them, hold them, tell them I love them and they didn't forget me! ❤️ They loved the house, and their new bedroom 🤗 it was magic!
I'm hopeful for more contact this week which solicitor is hoping to negotiate. I'm STILL waiting for my letter from the CPN!. He was told by his manager to go through the NHS solicitors to make the letter water tight so that ex/his solicitors can't pick holes in it, so I'm actually waiting on the NHS solicitors now, its frustrating... They have had a similar case happen before, so want to do as much for me as possible.
However, ex agreed to contact this weekend, both days, due to my CPN speaking on the phone with my solicitor, and informing her I am well, capable, of sound mind, has seen me / spoken to me every few days since ex started with these mind games a month ago.
The kids were very anxious about going back to him, which was heartbreaking, but at the very least they know I'm always here, I have a safe home and I'm going to fight for their right to be with me, their mum.
Thankyou for all your support ladies. The first "urgent" hearing is next week, and then it's dealing with cafcass, social services etc for the next (and hopefully final) hearing in 2 months time where we will find out the child arrangements order.
Still a bloody long way to go till this is sorted, I don't trust that he won't do anything he can to get at me. He is already disputing the kids living with me and now my benefits may be stopped or suspended until this is sorted, which is just another form of him trying to control me.
I will never go back to him. I have lost all respect, faith, trust and any love I had for him is well and truly gone. He was able to hide behind clever words, confuse me, manipulate me and control me for far too long.
I hope the kids will forgive me for this upheaval in their lives, and I hope beyond all hope that they are back with me on a regular basis and that the judge can see him for what he is and that his actions have impacted our children's emotional well being significantly. But, until I have the judges decision, I know I won't take anything for granted. Anything could happen and now I know ex is capable of this, he could be capable of more and throw something else at me.
As always, thanks for checking in on me and your support xxx

@Iamworthit your court case is Tuesday I think? How are you doing? Have you seen your children again?
Hi, nice username, dd2 loves hungry caterpillar!
I saw them once in the week aswell as yesterday and today. All had to be supervised by my mum, despite his solicitor confirming she sent him the letter from my CpN on Tuesday lunchtime, and me also sending him a message to say he now has it. However this letter he so desperately said he needs for me to have unsupervised and overnight visits he hasn't even responded to. I'm presuming he is waiting till court on Tuesday.
Yesterday the girls informed me that daddy left them at a strange woman's house whilst he went to work...
The time has been wonderful and I've really treasured every moment. Yesterday my one year old was in desperate need of a nap, he snuggled up to me in our new king-size bed in our new house and he slept peacefully for well over 2 hours. I feel so blessed to be their mummy and am thrilled at how comfortable they have been when back with me for these times. If anyone reads this in the future going through something similar - they don't forget you. That was my biggest fear, but I have more faith now that the bond between a mother and her children will always be there, no matter what or who stands in the way. Love is love.
So, our new magic house (the girls named it) is empty again for now. I'm just counting down the time until Tuesday afternoon and hoping/praying/wishing/ that the judge sees him for what he is and what he has put the children through. My solicitor is hopeful, but obviously no one knows what's going to happen on the day. I never thought my ex was capable of what he has done, but here we are.
I hope everyone has had a lovely mother's day 💗

Thankyou for all your messages and words of support for tomorrow. The police know everything, they did their welfare check on the children whilst he was staying at his parents house in their old country farm house with the attatched holiday home for them to stay in surrounded by their 40 acres of land. Not in the home where he and I lived with his shed at the bottom of the garden and no doubt chaos in the house where for the first time he is having to do all housework, laundry and cooking. They have been back at his for almost 2 weeks now. I have found a small comfort in them choosing games on their tablets and me getting the notification to approve their choices. The fact that I left with barely anything means they have the majority of their toys there, beds, tv etc and to them it was our home where we all lived together so at least they have familiarity. Cafcass will probably be doing a Section 7 report in which case they will meet with us and the kids in both houses so can make their own assessments from that.
They love our new house and I've explained to them the benefits of two houses, bedrooms, toys, Christmas, birthdays etc. They are being so resilient and brave through it all. I'm hoping for them it's just been a bit of an adventure.
The children filled me in on their day at the 'stranger ladies' house, where there was other children, guinea pigs a cat and a dog. They watched telly and played with the other kids and the animals and they gave dd2 a dress she particularly liked. They were very animated about it. I guess at the very least they had fun, I imagine they've been pretty bored with him. We had to drive past his house and up the road next to ex's house to get to mine yesterday and dd1 proudly pointed out 'that ladies house'. Would you believe it's almost directly behind his house!! For all I know he's been seeing this woman behind my back. She could have been hopping over the fence every night and going into his shed for all I know. I can't believe this is my life right now, you couldn't make it up. But as I've come to learn the hard way I certainly can't trust him, and I won't put anything past him.
Literally just counting down till tomorrow now.

I have no idea who she is. I did however do a Facebook search of the local "Andreas" in the area and the kids pointed to who she was and pointed to the children who they recognised. It took all of about 60 seconds to find her. And the kids named the kids correctly to what she had shared publicly on her fb page. There's even a picture of her 'cheers-ing' her primary aged son both of them holding glasses of red wine. I've taken screenshots. Her name isn't on any registered childminder lists.

Will light a candle for you tonight. You've kept it together amazingly through all this. Here's hoping your kids will be back with you tomorrow.
Thankyou x

Op, stay true to yourself and your children.
don’t get caught up with what ex is doing/seeing/sleeping with. It is irrelevant! You can’t control it and the kids are ok. It will just muddy the waters. As others say it’s another twist from ex to distract you and send you off the rails.
focus on what you can do and what’s in the childrens best interest.
good luck with tomorrow, I hope the kids come home to you asap.
I genuinely don't care what he's up to relationship wise, I've been hoping he'd find someone else for a long time and leave me alone.
What I do care about is him leaving the kids with someone they don't know for whatever reason, when I'm round the corner desperate to see them, and him thinking he can do whatever he likes without any consideration for them, me or my mum who's had to drop everything (shes been brilliant in all this) without question, to supervise time for me to have my own children.
I will definitely be asking for first refusal of child care as some other posters have suggested.

My ex hid him for a month. DS was desperate to see me. My ex is a very wicked man.
Show quote history That's despicable. I'm so sorry x

Tomorrow is an urgent hearing to sort out the interim child arrangements before the first official hearing in May after cafcass have done their reports. It's possible there will be another 2 Hearings after that and this could take anywhere from 6 months up to a year to resolve.
Because he did a runner with the kids first, filed a Prohibited Steps Order to stop them living with me because he is saying I'm mentally unstable.
Best case scenario they return to live with me and the judge sees through his controlling behaviour and that he doesn't have the kids best interests at heart. Worst case scenario it stays as it is.
I suspect he has something else up his sleeve to throw at me tomorrow. Its clear he wants me to suffer as much as possible.

2023.03.20 20:37 kewlkangaroo I want to run Llama-7b-4bit in some type of Python environment so I can play around and learn with the code. I’m new to this specific field. How do I do this?

Sorry if this post doesn’t make a lot of sense. I’m still learning.
My Python knowledge is fairly limited, but regardless I’ve been messing around a bit with HuggingFace and creating little chat bot scripts with really low-end models that are available. However I’m extremely interested in Llama-7b. From the looks of it, I could run something comparable to gpt-3 locally.
My computer is pretty mediocre. Ryzen 5 3500, 16GB DDR4 3200mhz with a GTX 1650 Super 4GB. I’ve seen this model run on a Pixel 4 and Raspberry PI, obviously with differing results. At the end of the day I would like to see this running on my computer.
I’m reading all sorts of documentation and it’s not really clicking. There’s tons of different projects and I’m not sure exactly what I’m going for.
What I mean by “Python environment” is basically a way to run this model on my computer, then use Python to play around and add to it (for example, TTS). So when I see a bunch of different languages on github for certain projects, it doesn’t look appealing for my needs. What would I use? Pyllama?
Any help appreciated. I sort of need a ELI5 explanation.

2023.03.20 20:37 TheMightyBox72 Respect the Gorillaz (Gorillaz)


♪ Feel Good Inc. ♪
In 1999 a greasy cartoon character from Stoke-on-Trent, England had a dream: To become the most wealthy and famous musician in the world. His method of doing so, simple: make a deal with Beelzebub for his immortal soul. Doing so would set off a series of events which result in the formation of The Gorillaz, a defining staple of British pop, British punk, alternative, scene, and the music landscape in general, their misadventures spanning just about every medium and platform you could imagine.

Group Feats


Vocals and Keyboard
♪ Skinny Ape ♪
The pretty boy singer, Stuart "Stu-Pot" Pot (original family name Tusspot) had few ambitions in life and even fewer thoughts in his head. He had a knack for music, having worked in his family's music shop, but mostly he occupied his time with zombie movies. That is, until Murdoc Niccals crashed into his life. Literally, crashed a car through the music shop's window and smacked Stu with his front fender. Stu went into a coma, and Murdoc's punishment for the crime was community service, namely taking care of Stu's comatose body until he woke up. Murdoc proceeded exactly the way he'd been before his sentencing and a second car accident knocked Stu up out of his coma. After waking up, Murdoc found out the kid could sing, and so conscripted him into the band. He got the nickname 2-D from the 2 Dents in his head that Murdoc had left, and each accident had "fractured" an eye, leaving them both completely black, giving him a very characteristic inky gaze, even if there's nothing much going on behind it.

Murdoc Niccals

Bass Guitar
♪ Clint Eastwood ♪
The bass player, frontman, and self-proclaimed band leader, Murdoc is a rockstar's rockstar. A greasy, slimy, sleazy, grimy, foul-smelling, foul-tempered, hedonistic, narcissistic, hard-drinking, chain-smoking, womanizing, hip-thrusting, bass licking, Satan-worshipping dirty rag of a human being. Murdoc was the one who came up with the idea of Gorillaz, the one who sold his soul to Satan to make the band a success, and the one who got them their first headquarters, Kong Studios. Despite his near non-stop abuse (only tempered very recently by a stunt involving a demon mobster, the snowy mountains of Patagonia, and a prison break that nearly killed him), Murdoc always contributes to the band's image, their finances, their resources, their security, and sometimes he helps them make music too.


Guitar and Misc.
♪ DARE ♪
The girl who would come to be named Noodle was raised in a secretive Japanese military division, one which sought to use child soldiers as the perfect infiltration and assassination operatives. Noodle, while trained broadly in the ways of combat, was specialized in the use of audio warfare. Her teacher, however, upon learning that the project was to be scrapped and the trainees to be eliminated, couldn't stand to see her killed, so he wiped her memories with a codephrase so they could be reactivated later and shipped her out in a FedEx box. She wound up on the doorstep of the Kong Studio the very day the band put out an ad for a guitar player (after Murdoc shagged her in one of the studio's bathroom stalls (while she was dating 2-D)), and she immediately passed the audition with flying colors and was added to the lineup. She was named after the only English word she knew at the time, and even after regaining her memories it's stuck. Since then she's become the most compassionate, thoughtful, and consciously concerned member of the band, seeking to use their fame and platform to help better the world.

Russel Hobbs

Drummer and Mixer
♪ Saturnz Barz ♪
Russel Hobbs was a hip-hop head growing up in New York, who, by strange happenstance, has been dogged by the legions of hell for most of his life. During one particularly tragic incident, he and his friends got caught up in a drive-by shooting, one which left Russel as the only survivor. However, the spirits of his dead friends were nearly immediately sucked into his skull, allowing them to live on through him, and also giving him their combined musical knowledge to make him a veritable encyclopedia on hip-hop and musical composition. Sent to live with his uncle to try and recover from the trauma in the English countryside, Russel was found and then literally gagged and bagged by Murdoc and taken to Kong Studios. And after listening to their demos, he was impressed, and agreed to join the band.


Guest Rapper
♪ Rock the House ♪
Russel's closest friend both before and after his tragic death, Del would stick around as a spirit possessing Russel's body, summoned from inside Russel's skull and returns just as easily, his effects disappearing with him. He was used frequently in their first album as a guest rapper. You can see from these examples that Russ spaces out whenever Del is summoned, as Del seemingly can't exist physically while Russel is conscious. In between Gorillaz and Demon Days, the Grim Reaper caught up with Russel and took Del into the afterlife.

Cyborg Noodle

Backup Guitarist and Bodyguard
♪ Stylo ♪
After Noodle went missing and was presumed dead following a conspiracy surrounding the El Mañana video, a means to off one of the band's assailants after which she disappeared, Murdoc had an idea for a new album and, short of anyone to help him write or record, created a new guitarist and songwriter to play with him, especially on tour. So, using some remaining piece of Noodle's DNA in an unspecified capacity, he created a robotic duplicate, and decked her out with guns cause that'd be cool.


Backup Bassist
♪ Tranz ♪
Leader of the notorious criminal organization the Gangreen Gang, Ace was brought in to play bass for the band while Murdoc was incarcerated for unpaid parking tickets and attempting to bribe a judge to get out of it.


♪ 19-2000 ♪
The band have employed and spent millions on a number of different vehicles over their long career. As each has shown to be skilled drivers, any of them can effectively utilize the following.
♪ Tomorrow Comes Today ♪
