2023.06.02 00:32 hy_im_aaron My grievances & questions for Totk

Ok so, firstly, why couldn't they be happy... it's like mayoras mask all over again. Anyways.
Where did all of the sheikah tech go? And why couldn't it just exist along side the new purah tech (which is just sheikah tech rebranded) like I understand the shrines, they were meant for the hero, we completed then and gone, cool. But where are all the towers? Or the huge ass pilars surrounding Hyrule castle, or the Devine beast?? I've heard the argument of: zelda ordered their destruction so ganon won't take it, but it's been only a couple of years at most, they could only build lookout landing. I don't like that it's not even attempted to be explained. And also, now there's purah tech, which is the same, what's the difference?
Where's the triforce? Has everyone including the reincarnation of the goddess, the hero and Gannon itself forgot that they hold one of pieces of THE most powerful artifact of hyrule? That why zelda can seal darkness, that why link is the best swordsman and that's the reason malice takes over Ganondorf
If at all, where does Totk even fit on the timeline? If it's before Skyward Sword, Ganondorf shouldn't even exist yet. None of the gerudo. If it's after, how are Zonai different from Sheikah, sheikah had timestones even before hyleans were ascended into the sky by the goddess, it's all over the Lanayru desert.
Is the foundation of hyrule now not Canon? The royal family bloodline was started by Zelda and Link from Skyward Sword.
Many more but I'll leave it at that for now.

2023.06.02 00:31 Psychological_Lab174 Nitrites and nitrates

I decided to test my boy’s water today, just to make sure everything was okay. He didn’t appear stressed or anything, but I decided to test for peace of mind. I was SHOCKED to see his ammonia and nitrites were very high… 8ppm ammonia and 5ppm nitrite. I did an immediate 75% water change and added some Seachem Prime to neutralize the nitrites. I also added some aquarium salt to help his gill function as much as possible. I tested the levels after the water change and they were both negative, so it appears that everything has been neutralized for the time being. He is still not showing any signs of stress or weakening.
I do water changes 1-2 times per week, about 25% each water change. I only feed him what he can eat, so it’s not like any food is rotting in his tank. I have also scaled back his feedings since he had some bloating issues, so he is eating 4 pellets every couple of days. Every time I change his water, I also add some of the Seachem bio quick start to help with the bacterial biofilter.
This tank has been going for over a month and I have not had any issues with ammonia or nitrites. It’s a 2.5 gallon with a filter and heater. I’m not sure why this is happening suddenly? Is there anything I can do to make sure it doesn’t happen again?
P.S. please don’t judge…I swear I’m doing my best for my boy and I’m trying to be proactive as much as possible. 🤍

2023.06.02 00:29 HappilyAHeathen Girlfriend deliberately let me think she was dead.

I mostly just need to vent about this. I'm a man in my late thirties. I spent the entirety of my twenties committed to one person and dated sporadically in my thirties with less than inspiring results.
Had been in a relationship with this girl for three or four months. She was about 8 years younger than me, worked part time as a barista and lived with her mother in a one bedroom apartment but she was incredibly sweet and enthusiastic and would do these sweet gestures like writing me letters about how excited she was to be with me and bringing lunch to me at work so I fell for her pretty hard and fast--dating in my thirties has generally been a pretty disappointing affair, with most women treating me like some kind of consolation settlement for not getting what they really wanted, so spending time with someone who seemed genuinely enthusiastic about me was.... like a drug.
After about four months or so she wanted to meet my family who I'm not on great terms with but I settled and took her to my brother and sister-in-law's place. While she was there, they let slip that I live... uncomfortably close to my mother--when the pandemic ended, my landlords hiked their rent beyond what I was willing to pay so I reached out to my mother's landlady who had what I needed but the catch was being essentially next door to her. I'm not on great terms with my mother so I spent the entire time living there trying to pretend her place wasn't a rock's throw away... therefore it never really occurred to me to mention it.
Anyway, when my girlfriend found out, she didn't handle it well and accused me of hiding things from her. I apologized and we had a very long talk about it and it seemed like things had gotten better for half a week or so. One morning she was leaving my place to go to a class and about five minutes after she left, my entire house began to shake--it turns out a tornado had torn through the area, ripped the roofs off of a number of businesses and residences--there was a car crushed under a tree all of about a block away from my home so when I got out to survey the damage I was immediately worried about her.
Texted her immediately and asked if she was okay but got no response. I work in tv so my entire day was occupied with covering the path of the storm and all of the damage it had caused in between trying to see if there was anyone who could safely check on her. By the end of what turned out to be a twelve hour day I was a shaking mess with still no response--and I wouldn't get one for another three days. It was nonchalant and completely unapologetic. After that response, I wouldn't hear from her for another week when I finally got upset.
She called and still didn't apologize, only giving me a lame excuse about not being in a good headspace but I was so happy to hear her voice for the first time since the tornado hit that I forgave her. For the next couple weeks we kept making plans with about a 75% chance of her cancelling at the last minute. During the last night we were together she found out that one of my best friends who she hadn't met yet (new mother, so not a lot of time for socializing) and I had dated very briefly about eight years before, proclaimed she was sick of the lies and stormed out of my home. She broke up with me via text and told me never to talk to her again.
In summary I guess this post is half complaining about ghosting and half me trying to figure normal people out... like I'm about 80% sure I'm some variety of on the spectrum but it wasn't really a thing that was tested regularly when I was younger and don't really care enough to bother now, so I guess I need to have normal brains explained to me sometimes. Should I move forward in life always ready to detail every bit of minutia about my life in explicit and immediate detail, such as exactly what proximity my mother's home is to mine and whether or not my best friend and I initially dated for a hot second before deciding we'd much rather be friends almost a decade ago?

2023.06.02 00:27 Sinfect666 Ready to throw out the window

I have had my printer for about a year and printed a bunch of things, been trying to learn as much as I can. It's been a couple months since I printed anything. I recently got a new board game and have been trying to print organizers for it, it's been hell. I had filament that had been sitting out and seemed very brittle, it was a shiny blue, is this normal? I have gone through I think every possible problem, warping, first layer being very rough and not connecting at points, inconsistent walls making for walls so weak they broke with barely touching it, best I can describe it as strings all over the place and clogging. I got new filament to see if that was the problem and getting clogging again. I took the nozzle off and tried to clean it, I took the fed tube and actually cut a bit off the end bc there was a bunch of the blue filament in it. Still clogging.
I mostly print organizers with my filament printer, would going to a larger nozzle be a good idea or really bad one? Also if you have tips on how to get better print results please share, I have adjusted temps, speed, wall size and still had problems.

2023.06.02 00:19 Momispersonality AITA for telling my husband to block is friend

Background info: I 26F met my husband 26M when we were 22. Got engaged after exactly 1 year of dating. Married exactly a year after that and now have a beautiful 6month old daughter. When we first started dating he told me that his ex cheated on him and thats why they broke up. A couple months later he confessed that he actually cheated on her first and was a serial cheater but that she knew about it and thought it was hot and got off to it. But he had never cheated in any other relationships other than with her. I over looked this because I do love him and trusted that he would never do this to me. Fast forward to our original wedding day, that got pushed back due to covid, I found out that his “best friend”(26F), who was also not invited to the wedding, had asked him to do a threesome with her and had also sent pictures of herself in lingerie for his “approval” while we were dating. I immediately asked him not to talk to her anymore as it seem inappropriate. He freaked out and told me I was just being jealous and that I had nothing to worry about. Fast forward again to me being 6 months pregnant, I found out he was still talking to her but this time about our sex life and him complaining that I never wanted to have sex anymore. I told him that this was incredibly inappropriate and to not talk about that stuff with her. He agreed to stop and said he would talk to her anymore. Today I found out that he has been hanging out with her behind my back and has still been texting her and even complimenting her looks. I asked him yet again to not talk to her and to block her phone number and all her social media accounts. I fear that he will cheat on me with her like his last girlfriend. Am I being reasonable or just over dramatic?

2023.06.02 00:19 VindalooSpice Palm Springs: Best adult resort for a kinky bi couple?

Apologies for the possibly bizarre request, not finding any Palm Springs subs conducive to this type of question...
Bi MF couple visiting PSP for the first time in July and trying to figure out the best of the adult-oriented/clothing-optional resorts for a couple like us... we're not typical swingers looking to swap with other couples, rather we mostly play with other bisexual/hetroflexible/homoflexible guys or in mixed groups.
Of course, there are tons of gay resorts, but would a MF couple be ostracized? Any specifically that are sex-positive and OK with mixed genders seeking LGBTQIA+ playmates?
Thanks for any suggestions!

2023.06.02 00:18 Mysterious-Lychee98 Ugly duckling/makeover plot (FMC)

Hey, so I'm looking for books where the FMC is kind of an ugly duckling but becomes beautiful through a makeover or through time. The MMC only notices her beauty after her improvement, so no "I loved you from the beginning"-kind of plot but more like an enemies-to-lovers or "I can't believe I didn't noticed your earlier"-kind of plot :)
For example: Maybe she is kind of a nerd who doesn't know how to style (like the right clothes, hair, makeup) and gets help from a friend. And then her enemy who bullied her is stunned by her appearance.
But any kind of book with this plot that you enjoyed would be great (also for example friends to lovers/brothers best friend/millionaire romance/...). Thanks in advance! :)

2023.06.02 00:17 TheEndless404 How to get the most when selling an entire collection?

Hey all! So I’ve been thinking about selling basically my entire paper magic collection aside from a few decks. Upwards of 10k commons and i commons less than a dollar each, plus about a thousand worth a dollar to three dollars. A stuffed full D ring binder of rares and a couple hundred mythics. I can move the more valuable stuff pretty easily but I’m not sure about the best way to move the cheaper stuff.
I was thinking going through tcgplayer, maybe even considering the whole “ship us your collection and we’ll sell it for you!” thing if people like that idea. I don’t mind shipping my stuff myself as long as I’m making at least like 20-25 bucks an order.
How would you go about moving a collection to maximize profits and minimize pain in the ass?

2023.06.02 00:13 TallSmartWaterBottle A (new) method from another reality

Hey fellow reality shifters/jumpers!
I'm hoping this helps, not yet sure if this method exists in this reality, but if not it's a new method based on similar methods that should help a lot. With this method, there's no need for external objects, it's all within the mind and should work just as good if not better than the 2 Cups or Mirror method for a lot of you.

"By allowing yourself to not be attached to the reality you know, you can make bigger changes.
By allowing yourself to let go of all the external attachments you hold, you can perform a shift to any universe no matter the change.
That will prove difficult, but to make it easy, I have a tip you have likely yet to see or hear anywhere else that is combined with some things you may have learned.
Now what is it?
  1. Relax and center yourself by breathing deeply and visualizing your energy, your essence all of your energy.
  2. Next, visualize you're outside your energy, but that you're not your energy, you're just watching it.
  3. Visualize you're in a void of sorts, you're outside this universe in a place where all universes are visible.
  4. Imagine the universe you desire, fully see yourself in it and imagine the surprise and joy you'll feel upon opening your eyes and seeing yourself there.
  5. Open your eyes and feel the shift in reality.
  6. It'll be a knowing you shifted, a feeling within yourself, if you successfully did it.
  7. Start with small things but practice this method frequently and gradually increase the changes.
You can do this technique in the span of a few minutes, just follow word for word, no need to be in a super deep state even, just need to gain that separation and the best way is through simple relaxation, awareness, and detachment."

I shifted to a reality where I have a spiritual teacher who is a master at dimension jumping. He taught me this method while a student of him. I developed the ability of channeling after a couple years of meditation (way before I learned of jumping dimensions, I mean in this CR) and now I've been meditating for 4 or 5 years in CR time.
I asked his thoughtform from that reality some questions and through automatic writing (I use typing but same thing basically), this was one of his responses. He also told me the four most important lessons he taught me were as follows:
  1. "The most important thing I taught you is that you are never changing your reality. Not once. You're instead shifting to a similar reality where the change you desire already exists. It's drastically of importance to process and understand that on a deep level, such as to meditate on that fact, because upon full realization of that concept you'll easily shift to other realities or "jump dimensions" as you call it. With great ease. You'll have the ability to shift to this reality and fully be there in the present moment not in the past upon shifting."
  2. "All realities exist and you're not attached to any of them if you're able to move between them."
  3. "The greater detachment you gain from your current reality or at the minimum the circumstance(s) you're attempting to change, the massively easier it is to jump to a different reality with the desired change."
  4. "And lastly, to avoid undesired consequences practice practice practice with small changes and note them somewhere."

I asked a simple summary so I could put it on my wallpaper, and it goes as follows:
  1. Reality's not changing, you're shifting realities
  2. Infinite # of realities
  3. Detach to change
  4. Practice practice practice w/ small changes

I know some of you will unfortunately think I'm insane, schitzo, and/or delusional, but for those who are willing to maintain an open-mind reading this post, I truly hope my experiences will be of great use and help for you on your journey of jumping dimensions or shifting to the realties you desire.
Safe travels on your journey and much love,
A fellow reality shifter

2023.06.02 00:10 Dieguete_Yo LFM People: Say Hello to your new Latifi

And it'll be me! As I just got my license for LFM!
I'm making this post summarizing my learning and giving some useful tips that helped me get here. This was my first sim and the first time I got serious on it:

1.- Forget of learning all the tracks: Get some variety of tracks and use a while to go around them, don't worry about the times, just learn the track, go fast and learn to go on the limit. One trick I also used to myself was to put the track conditions to "fast", as that gave me some leverage for the time.
2.- Give it time! And be patient, you cannot learn in a couple of days, and if you see somebody saying "it took me 10 hours to get the license", they are experienced simracers. You'll need easily 10 hours to learn a single track, without having a competent race pace. Just forget about that, you'll get there.
3.- Don't put the AI too aggresive: Practicing against the AI is the best to learn to be predictable, drive safe and get yourself used to trac conditions during a race. If you put too high aggresive AI, they will dive bomb like crazy and you're not really learning. Also, don't make short races, the key for this is consistency, and if you are able to make 30-45 minute races without issues, you're there.
Once you got this, practice a bit the license server, any other track will just need a few hours practice and a touch on your setup. With just this and practice I got through.
I wish you luck guys! Hope to see you all on the track soon!

2023.06.02 00:08 NBAjjchamberlain NBA Finals 2023 - Five Strategies to Watch

This year’s NBA Finals is already historic. The Heat are the first play-in team to claw their way out of a 44-38 record and 8th seed to land themselves in the NBA Finals. The Nuggets have never made a Finals, had the best record in the battle hardened West and the city is absolutely stoked. What are NBA heads saying about the series? What are fans around the world hoping to see? How are coaches going to keep these ballers away from Denver’s number one trending story of the year: Shotgun Willie’s Gentleman’s Club, which infamously siren songed the Grizzlies’ Ja Morant into stacking cash on every inch of the private dance room? Slap a booty and get ready for the last NBA basketball of the year.
Thanks for reading JJ’s Substack! Subscribe for free to receive new posts and support my work.
1 - How to stop Nikola Jokic?
The two time MVP is having yet another killer season. He’s been, arguably, the best player in the playoffs of all time. He’s averging a triple double on 29.9 points, 13.3 assists, 10.3 rebounds and around 1 block and 1 steal per game. This guy can do it all and has undoubtedly contributed to the Heat coaching staff’s lack of sleep. Luckily the state just decrminalized a fanny pack of plant based drugs that may help.
Everyone knows how much the Heat love running zone defense. Can the zone even stop Jokic? Doubt it but the Heat are going to try. They run a fluid 2-3 zone which can flow directly into a 1-3-1 formation. The Heat need to pack the middle of the floor and push Jokic to the sidelines on the pick and roll using their 1-3-1. If the Heat can keep Jokic out of the middle of the floor that limits his options on the center-point guard pick and roll that he runs to perfection with Jamal Murray. Look for easy rebounds and putbacks on the weak side from Aaron Gordon and Michael Porter Jr.
Can the Nuggets outshoot the zone? Damn right they can. Will they? We’ll see. The Heat run out and defend every single three point attempt. They held the sharp shooting Boston Celtics to 30% from 3, down from 37% during the regular season. However, this series may be won from the three point line if the Nuggets can run and the Heat can get Butler into the lane for kickouts.
2 - Who can guard Jimmy Butler?
Aaron Gordon most likely. We will see if he’s too slow to stay in front of Jimmy. If Butler still has that nagging injury he’s been battling the past two series that will help out AG. There are a couple bodies that the Nuggets can throw at James Effin Buckets. Kentavious Caldwell-Pope is an underrated defender with sneaky strength. Reggie Jackson is rusty but used to be able to defend at a high level. Bruce Brown has the heart of fiesty chihuahua but he’s too small. Jamal is too small too. We’ve all seen what Jimmy’s done to smaller guards, he’ll bully his way to the lane and make defenders look stupid with his pump fakes, footwork, interior passing and little chip shots. If Jimmy gets stuffed this series, who will show up for the Heat?
3 - Malone vs Spo
Erik Spoelstra has solidified his standing as one of the greatest coaches of the era, possibly all time. This will be his 6th NBA Finals since taking over the reigns from Pat Riley in 2009. I have no doubt that Spo has some tricks in the bag and having the Godfather on speed dial doesn’t hurt either.
But Malone is no stranger to NBA legacies. His father Brendan was an assistant for the champion Pistons in the late 80’s and then again with the Knicks Finals run in 1999 and the Reggie Miller Pacers in 2000. Michael himself was an assistant during LeBron’s first Finals in 2007. So he does have some experience here in the promised land.
This coaching matchup will come down to, you guessed it, in-game adjustments. Each coach’s ability to change on the fly will be crucial to finding the weak points in each other’s schemes. Every possession will matter in these games. Look for Malone to push the pace with his crew and try to get some quick transition buckets before the Heat can set up their defense. Jokic excels in the rebound-and-go game. In the half court, Malone will try to move Jokic around to different points on the floor and it will be especially interesting when he puts Joker back to the basket in the post. He has the passing, vision, strength, length and creativity to be dangerous that close to the basket.
Spoelstra on the other hand will walk the ball up, play through Butler and try to swing the Nuggets defense from side to side. Expect him to set up Duncan Robinson and Max Strus on the wings where they can be dangerous driving or shooting the three off the Butler-Bam Adebayo pick and roll. Kevin Love can still knock down an open jumper and may have some post move tricks up his sleeve. But he’s so old he can’t even drive a golf cart anymore. Love can be another big body that Spo can put on Jokic to give him different defenders.
4 - Bench Scoring - Who will shine?
The bright lights may burn the bench guys but some will bask in the glory. Kyle Lowry is due for a big game after struggling against the Celtics top tier wing defenders. The Nuggets don’t have the bench defense to hold down all the Heat shooters so we will see a game won by a Heat backup, like we’ve seen in plenty of games so far this playoffs.
The Nuggets bench has issues. Jeff Green is too old. Christian Braun is too young. Reggie Jackson and Thomas Bryant have yet to work their way into the rotation. DeAndre Jordan is a mascot. However, expect some decent minutes from…Vlatko Cancar if the Heat bench is outperforming Green, Brown and Braun. Cancar can guard Love and Robinson. Really this Nuggets bench goes how Bruce Brown goes. If he has a hot game on both ends, the bench looks unstoppable. If he withers like a winter flower then the Heat bench will dominate like they’ve done all year.
5 - The crowd, the altitude, the experience, the refs
Intangibles. The stuff numbers can’t measure. The Nuggets crowd will be loud, fired up and intense. The Heat crowd, not so much. They’ve been spoiled over the years, show up late and leave early. They do wear the white shirts though which looks nice but makes the empty seats even more noticeable.
Do players play worse at altitude? Short answer, yes. Long answer, it depends. The altitude will effect the Heat at the beginning and end of games. The biggest concern is dehydration which means keeping the Heat out of the club and focused on basketball. Heat culture will play a big role here with everyone, top to bottom, 100% ready for each game.
The Heat have much more experience in the Finals than the Nuggets. They have two NBA champions in the rotation in KLove and KLow, three if you count the corpse of Udonis Haslem. They also have a few returning from their 2020 bubble Finals against the Lakers where they lost a heartbreaker to an Anthony Davis fall away three. This grizzled Heat team will be angry and hungry but what else is new? Their Finals experience may end up being the overriding factor in this series, especially among the coaching staffs. The Heat will stay calm and collected even with the intensity through the roof.
Finally, the NBA’s middle management, the refs. Who does the NBA want to win? What will revenue more? This is a coin flip. With the Lakers, Knicks, Celtics and Warriors all on the couch, gone fishin’ or 1-2-3 Cancunin’, the refs will likely call this series as even as they can. A Jokic ring would be the icing on the cake for Eastern European basketball which hasn’t ever had an MVP champion.
So who ya got? The Nuggets in 5 seems like a solid bet at +225 against a hobbled Heat team. But if the Heat push it to six and get back home expect them to finish hard and force a game 7. Heat in 7 is +1000 and it’s tough to bet against them the way they’ve defied all odds.

2023.06.02 00:08 TotalLoser9612 [L] I want to and deserve to die, I'm going to be alone forever why am I so unwanted

I'm a 27-year old guy and no woman has ever shown any hint of interest in me (so yes, I've never kissed). I can't take this anymore, what's the point of staying alive when no one actually wants you? I may not be horrifically ugly but I'm so bang average and, me meeting anyone is seemingly impossible. I'm short (5'6) and Indian (ethnically, I don't even know the language) which just makes things even worse.
My best friend who's a woman helped me set up a Hinge profile a few days ago and literally no one has liked me. Not one. That's hundreds of women who've seen me and said "no chance". How am I meant to not be humiliated by this? It's like she doesn't even seem to fucking realise that as a girl (and she's also probably top 5-10% looks wise) she has it so easy. She keeps trying to tell me "oh yeah we've got to take the positives where we can", "try not to think that way", and "oh yeah I find I'm able to be more positive about dating when I'm at peace with myself" and it's really starting to piss me off. It's so easy for her to say this shit when she can just rock up to a dating app, upload a picture and get a date within the hour. What reason do I have to be positive? Absolutely none. I'm a total reject who no one wants, and who no one will ever want. Even if by some miracle I got a date, it would soon become apparent I don't know what I'm doing. If it ever even got to a kiss they'd realise how I'm completely inexperienced and ditch me. Why am I even trying? Why was I ever so stupid to have hope this might change.
I'm just counting down the days till my family dies so I can kill myself. What the fuck is the point.

2023.06.02 00:07 Affectionate-Law8245 [M4F] Looking for a longterm partner for a Stranger Things roleplay

Hello. I saw this subreddit and I thought I’d give it a try.
I’ve been roleplaying for a couple of years now, I would say that I’m decently detailed but I would also say that I still have a long way to go in my roleplaying journey so please bare with me. A couple things before I get into specifics, I prefer rping on Discord I will mention again that I am relatively new so please keep that in mind when we are discussing or rping and 3 is that this is a commitment thing I understand people have things going on but at the end of the day this is a longterm roleplay.
With that out of the way i’ll explain a little more about the roleplay. This roleplay is going to be about Stranger Things, essentially it’ll be like we are playing out a season of the show except we can tinker with the season and have our own monsters and plot lines. I personally like to make my own character instead of using a canon character but you are free to do what you would like. As we make our way through the “season” our characters will begin to develop different feelings for eachother.
That’s my idea sort of, contact me if you’re interested
(Disclaimer, I can write (I prefer a bit of intimacy) smut so if you are into that we can totally do that. I am also using an OC)
I prefer Discord. Contact me :)
Best wishes!

2023.06.02 00:06 RoohsMama Dammit, I became a TedBecca fan after rewatching the finale!

Too be clear, I was never a TedBecca fan.
I hate it when we’re supposed to assume that the two main characters will fall in love. So I was vehemently opposed to Ted and Rebecca being an item.
They’re chalk and cheese. Rebecca is sophisticated, refined. Ted is folksy, unworldly.
When Ted baked biscuits for Rebecca, I was like “that’s just his way of sucking up to the boss.”
When Ted defended Rebecca against Rupert: “yeah, Ted hates a bully. He’d’ve done the same for anyone.”
When Ted comforted Rebecca after Rupert embarrassed her at the fundraiser: “I wish I had a friend like Ted.”
When Rebecca comforted Ted after his panic attack at karaoke: “I wish I had a friend like Rebecca.”
When they made it seem like Ted and Rebecca were communicating on Bantr: “fuckit, writers. Ted and Rebecca are not compatible! Don’t pretend that Ted can write those profound quotes.” (As it turns out yes, he didn’t.)
When Ted and Rebecca gave Christmas gifts to kids: “man, Rebecca looks like an ice queen while Ted is Santa’s elf.”
When Ted sang to help out Rebecca at her dad’s funeral: “yeesh, don’t ruin Rick Astley for her, Ted. You definitely ruined him for me.”
Whenever Ted or Rebecca reached out to the other but somehow the other was incommunicado: “thank God Ted ran off/Sassy was there/the phone fell in the river.”
When the prophesy made it look like Rebecca was choosing between Sam or Ted: “what the-! Those are both workplace relationships! Neither! Neitherrrrrrr!!!!!”
Finally, when the writers trolled us with Ted waking up at Rebecca’s place, I nearly burst an artery. “What the hell, writers! These characters deserve so much more respect then just hooking up! What is wrong with you?!?” I was so relieved when I saw Beard appear in his red thong.
I was so happy when Dutch guy (whose name we find out is Mathis) appeared in “Sunflowers”. I fervently hoped it would be him. This is what “fucking lightning” looks like. In one episode, Rebecca and Mathis had more chemistry than Ted and Rebecca in 3 seasons.
Then Rebecca bade farewell to Ted at the airport, and by golly, Hannah Waddingham’s performance was so good, because I felt her anguish. Rebecca loved Ted, but with such a pure love. They brought out the best in each other. They understood each other’s pain. They supported one another and together, created a winning football team.
This is the guy who forgave her even when she tried to humiliate and destroy him. He sought ways to cheer her up and make her feel worthy of love and respect.
In return, she never lost faith in him. We focus on how the Richmond team believed in each other, but we don’t mention how much Rebecca believes in Ted. Even when they were losing, she never thought of firing him. She was the first to see his panic attacks and the first to see him through.
In that final goodbye, I became a TedBecca fan, but not in a romantic way. I want to see more of this pure, beautiful friendship. I want to see Ted doing “biscuits with the boss” every day and trying his best at girl talk. I want to see Rebecca drumming some sense into Ted and preventing him from being too whimsical. I want to see them grow old together as only the closest, dearest, most heartwarming friends do.
Sadly, I don’t think Ted will feature in any possible spin-offs. It’s a pity because it’s not often that we see such a beautiful platonic relationship.

2023.06.02 00:06 Affectionate-Law8245 [M4F] Looking for a longterm partner for a Stranger Things roleplay

Hello. I saw this subreddit and I thought I’d give it a try.
I’ve been roleplaying for a couple of years now, I would say that I’m decently detailed but I would also say that I still have a long way to go in my roleplaying journey so please bare with me. A couple things before I get into specifics, I prefer rping on Discord I will mention again that I am relatively new so please keep that in mind when we are discussing or rping and 3 is that this is a commitment thing I understand people have things going on but at the end of the day this is a longterm roleplay.
With that out of the way i’ll explain a little more about the roleplay. This roleplay is going to be about Stranger Things, essentially it’ll be like we are playing out a season of the show except we can tinker with the season and have our own monsters and plot lines. I personally like to make my own character instead of using a canon character but you are free to do what you would like. As we make our way through the “season” our characters will begin to develop different feelings for eachother.
That’s my idea sort of, contact me if you’re interested
(Disclaimer, I can write (I prefer a bit of intimacy) smut so if you are into that we can totally do that. I am also using an OC)
I prefer Discord. Contact me :)
Best wishes!

2023.06.02 00:05 Snap-Zipper I (27F) don't know how to navigate my relationship with my abusive parents (50 F, 50 M)

I will try and give a short backstory first.
I am the youngest of 4; I have two sisters in their 30's and a brother in his late 30's. My parents are in their 50's.My father was a smoker and drinker, who abused us mentally and emotionally. He really tore us down. Because I'm the youngest by quite a bit, I was alone with them when everyone else reached adulthood, so I received that much more of the abuse. I had no self-worth and was very depressed and angry. The depression and anger caused my parents to treat me like there was something wrong with me because my siblings had hidden their feelings well, and it just got worse and worse.
Things really reached a breaking point when I was sexually abused by a boyfriend who was much older than I was, and my parents cared very little. In fact, they seemed to blame me.When I was in my late teens, I began dating my now fiancé. My parents kicked me out as they believed he would take care of me, and he really helped me to accept my past and heal. It was a long journey, but I'm so proud of how far I've come.

So that brings us to now. Both of my sisters have children. One of them is a narcissist with extreme main character syndrome, who I will call N. She has followed in my parents' footsteps and is verbally abusive to both of her young children. One of them is already in therapy at a very young age, and I'm honestly shocked that she even let the poor kid get mental help. Their dad is not in the picture. N also has a fetish for stealing married men away from their wives, which my parents seem to have no issue with. My parents spoil her and have left everyone else for dead. It's disturbing.
My other sister is my best friend- I'll call her L. She is a fantastic mother and has overcome so much abuse to not repeat harmful cycles. However, she still puts herself in positions where she can be hurt. She'll always visit my parents when they invite her over, even though N will always be there too. L will drive all the way there just to be ignored in favor of N, who my parents see constantly anyway. She keeps insisting on going because she wants to be here for N's children, and she wants the cousins to have a good relationship, which they do. It hurts to see her put herself in the line of fire constantly, and it makes me feel guilty about not doing it as well sometimes.
My brother minds his own business. He doesn't like what my parents and N are doing, but he's over the bullshit and does his own thing.
My parents ooze judgement and negativity. If you've ever read 'the narcissist's prayer', that is pretty much their MO. Zero responsibility, zero accountability, and they've taught N to be the same way. I've had many fights with my parents over the years, trying to show them how much they've hurt me, and all I get back in return is denial. This came to a head in 2020, when N was dating a married man and his wife found out. A family friend was the one who contacted the woman, but I was blamed for some reason, even though it clearly was not me. My mother told me she didn't love me anymore. My father told me I was no longer family. I really thought that would be the end of it. How was that not the end of it?
They continue to act like NOTHING happened at all. I still get invited to holidays (but not hangouts). Sometimes fiancé and I go, sometimes we don't. My mom guilt-tripped me into going on a shopping trip for my birthday because my father is very sick, and she's been understandably stressed. No accountability for saying she doesn't love me. Nothing.
Here's the thing. I really don't want to see them anymore. I probably still would to an extent, like at L's children's birthdays, but Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc.? They're nothing but stress on me, and I truly only go now because I want to support L, because this girl will not stop going over there for the sake of N's children. And I love N's kids too, very much, and I hate how they're treated, but I can't do anything. And it sucks, dammit.
One of N's kids has a birthday coming up, which I already said I would make an appearance at. It's unknown if my parents are attending. I haven't spoken to my father since late 2022 and I wished my mother a happy Mother's Day, but I was left on read. Needless to say, I do not want to see them there.
Now I'm torn on what to do. Do I send a text? Do I say, again, that how I was previously treated was unacceptable? That I've been 100% checked out of this relationship with all 3 of them since the 2020 issue and I want to make this breakup official? Or do I keep half-assing this for the sake of giving N's kids some positive interaction a few times a year, even if that is possibly accomplishing nothing? Am I secretly afraid to let go? I just feel confused and sad.

2023.06.02 00:03 Unluckily_Lucky_ I've started hating my best friend.

My best friend was so nice to me, he would give me insane gifts for my birthday and Christmas, he let's me play his games, we watch shows together, he offers to me food, and he still does. I also buy him gifts and stuff but i have a lot less money than him. But I think the problem started when he told me he had a crush on me, I didn't think I would mind, I've been friends with people who had a crush on me before and we were just fine, so i turned him down and moved on. But ever since he's been weird, he makes jokes about us crush on me in descreet ways, he touches my thighs even after I've told him I don't like it, he leans on me and wraps his arms around me for extended periods of times when we are alone even if I told him I don't like it. and if im able to get him to stop, he gets upset. I've started hating him, and he has no idea. He plans on us moving in together after highschool, he tries to talk to me and hangout with me all the time, and he gets upset when I don't sit next to him. I'm living through hell and he has no idea.

2023.06.02 00:01 jellysmacks I am entirely fed up with boxed-in thinking

It’s disturbing to me how little people respect their own observational or intellectual abilities, or the abilities of others around them. This seems to specifically be a huge problem when mental health is involved. Many people seek therapy or other forms of psychological help in the hopes that the one helping can teach them to understand themselves. Oftentimes they don’t understand that the one who is supposedly helping is only there to turn them into someone who fits in by societal standards instead.
I have no interest in being “fixed” or to turn my brain down a couple notches and live the rest of my days with values and goals that somebody else believes are important. I would, however, like assistance from somebody with training and knowledge in recognizing behaviors so that I can isolate my problems and correct them myself. This just does not seem possible, as I’ve never met a mental health worker who wants to help me be me instead of helping me be “normal.” In fact I’ve never even been lucky enough to converse with anybody who values neutral observations over a piece of paper with a clinical diagnosis on it.
It’s mind-numbing. What are you people doing? Is it sincerely in your best interest- whether it’s for mental health reasons, spiritual reasons, religious reasons, or any other reason- to shut up and take an unknown person’s word as law because they have a signed piece of paper from another unknown person stating that they’re qualified to speak on certain matters? I can’t imagine living my life so unabashedly unconcerned with my own intellectual integrity. Nobody ever discovered anything by reciting what someone else told them; everything new comes from finding things yourself.
I can only hope that somebody who reads this can relate, but speaking from experience it seems that it’s far more likely speaking like this will only elicit condescension. Don’t waste your time trying to convince me that what is honest is actually arrogant. I let myself believe that one for too long.

2023.06.01 23:59 Technical_Week741 What kind of furniture should i get?

I like to move my room around often, change it up, move furniture. I don’t like things like dressers because it take alot of space and is bigger so it is harder to move it and change my room.
I have tried the metal closet racks/drawers/shelves, they did not work, they are ugly or take up to much room, or not efficient for me. I am currently trying those fabric boxes, but not a big fan as unless stacked it takes up too much room, if stacked its hard to look in. I have tried and still trying those plastic individual drawers, best one so far, but they are still kinda ugly and for some reason other then that im not a fan.
Any suggestions on furniture or diys i could get so i could change the shape of the “furniture” (so like individual drawers), something not to big like a dresser, but not ugly like the metal bars rack? It can be a combination of different things.

2023.06.01 23:57 redditrantaccount Rewatching Star Wars Rebels S4E10

So you are rewatching The Rebels in preparation for the Ahsoka show, and of course you remember the rough plot and that S4E10 is gonna happen again, but you've watched the show long ago, long enough for your body to forget.
And then, you start the run of S4 E7 to E10, and you think, like, wow, best animated Star Wars ever, appreciate it, a couple of very cool scenes, should make a post on Reddit...
And then E10 smashes you.
I was crying my eyes out, agonizing, unable to stop, unable to breathe.

2023.06.01 23:53 puft__ Tired of being unhappy

I'm just so very tired of everything. Tired of work. Of media. Tired of being unsatisfied with myself all the time. Tired of feeling like shit for 10 days straight just to feel excitement for half a day.
Even games, something I could always fall back to at bad times, do nothing. I turn on a game, but play it on autopilot while thoughts are racing about life.
Used to sit at home most of the time but now I can't stand it because all I think is how best years of my life are running out and I just keep thinking about how alone I am every time I put on a movie or game. Lately I constantly go out and try new things, even if I have to do it alone, so it wouldn't feel like I'm wasting my time. It really feels like nothing is helping. I just literally started crying out of nowhere at work, fortunately made it to wc so co-workers wouldn't think I'm mental lol.
I was pretty depressed in my early 20s, spent most of my time at home, did not try a lot of things. To be fair didn't even think I would live to 30. Now that I'm in my last years of late 20s I want to catch up with everything. And I really tried hard for the last year. Finally got a raise which I'm content with, travelled, got drivers licence, started being physically active. But after all of this I start to realize that none of this fucking matters if you got no personal relationships. I just feel like I'm absolutely alone in this world.
I really wanted to become more social but it's so stupidly hard. Tried dating, met couple super cool people that I enjoyed date with, but didn't workout in the end. Trying to get better at small talk and meet some new people and boy is that going well. Seems like impossible when you spent so many years just sitting at home being depressed. Feels like something is missing that every other person has.
Thought I was going through bad times at early 20s but holy shit late 20s hit different. It really does not feel like occasional couple hours of happiness are really worth days of negative feelings.
Seems like today was one of the worst days I had in my life. But to quote Homer "one of the worst days of my life SO FAR" lol. If anyone actually read this mess of a wall-text, thanks and have a great day :)
