2023.03.20 21:07 marcandreewolf I asked GPT-4 to compile a list which tasks it assumes will NOT be replaced by 2030, and why.

2023.03.20 21:06 _bell_peppers I FINALLY PASSED THE SERIES 65! Here’s the long story, after an even longer journey, so I can be a cautionary tale to those who don’t use their QBank.

Oh my goodness guys, I’m screaming. I finally slayed the 65 dragon after 3 prior devastating attempts. Here’s what worked for me/what didn’t.
Few things right off the top: I am a 27 year old financial planner with ADHD and HORRIBLE test anxiety. I work for a firm that recently converted to an RIA, and they decided to require this shortly after I started until you got your CFP. I have a masters in personal financial planning and a masters in business administration. Over the past year and a half (yeah I know) I have: gone on vacation, gotten married, honeymooned, got my appendix removed, got Covid, had a bunch of personal deaths AND got a very poorly behaved puppy. So that’s why this is SUCH a stretched out process.
Attempt 1: October 2021. Work bought us Kaplan textbooks and the premium study system. I said to myself, “self, you have a masters in financial planning AND and MBA, this test is nothing”, I skimmed a few guides, walked in, and BOMBED. 52%
Study method? 0/10
Attempt 2: January 2022: okay, last plan didn’t work. I’ll take a week off work, read the Kaplan book and do practice questions. Cool. This is when the ADHD kicked in and said “that books dumb” and I only really got through section 1. I also bought Test Geek’s videos, which I enjoyed, but felt the practice test was way easier than the exam I remembered. I did some Kaplan practice questions, but only the chapter benchmarks, and still didn’t think they were super valuable (despite what literally everyone told me). Had a nervous breakdown the morning of because I knew I wasn’t prepared, and BOMBED. 60%
Study method? 2/10 my heart was in the right place and Test Geek helped me understand a lot of the key concepts I was missing, but not the little dumb details.
Attempt 3: July 2022. okay, now it’s getting personal. Just got married, back from the honeymoon, let’s do it. In fact, I’ll completely reset my Kaplan program so all my stats and such are new. I read the book, take a ton of notes and drew diagrams and all that, still not doing many questions though. I’d do the ones in the textbook, do the occasional qbank on chapters I didn’t understand. However, I also panic purchased Pass Perfect and STC. I ended up barely touching them, so a pure waste of money. Had a smaller but still ugly panic attack that morning, went in, mind go blank, got a 64%.
Study method? 5/10 I call this my first “true attempt”, where I studied but definitely not how I should have. I was thinking my lack of reading was the issue, and it was, but I also was studying to try and understand concepts, rather than studying for the 65.
FINAL ATTEMPT: 3/20/2022 I had my 6 month block, which was what I needed. I purchased the Kaplan Live Video class with an incredible teacher, Mr. David Cavaliere. If anyone is struggling with the 65, don’t wait like I did, find a class. It was 3 hours a night, 2 days a week for 4 weeks in January. After the class was done, I still felt like I couldn’t answer the questions on the test screen. I could get the concepts, but when my eyes hit the screen it was all another language. I decided to try Achievable as well, I went through and read their “textbook” and did a lot of their questions. My brain LOVED this textbook. It was a lot simpler, less daunting, and could be consumed in like 20-30 min sessions. I also realized I SUCKED at reading questions, and typically skipped a lot of the “is not/false/except” words. A week before, I did as many Kaplan questions I could a day. I also found the incredible Mr. Dean Tinney. I watched a lot of his videos, especially the test explications, and that was the kick in the ass I needed. I started a Google doc where I took notes on the question, what was being asked, and why answers were right or wrong. I ended up doing this with my Kaplan Q Bank too, and created a weird little book of more or less “1000 facts found on the series 65”. Instead of trying to connect every dot, I realized once I saw a question and it’s explanation, I typically would recognize it again and get it right. This also help with the ADHD, as it was nuggets of wisdom rather than an 800 page book. So I did as many questions as I could get my hands on (not a worry with the QBank!) and wrote as many like 1-5 sentence tidbits as I could. I bolded key words or concepts so it would be obvious that we were being asked about THAT thing.
Morning of, my wonderful husband made me a protein filled breakfast, I watched the last 30 min of Dean Tinney’s Mutual Fund, read my list of answer explanations, reviewed the 4 info dump sheets from Achievable, and went to the exam. Only cried a little bit this time 😅
During the exam, I read each question 3 times and used one of my note sheets to cover answers so I could stop myself from going too fast. It took me about 2 hrs 45 min, and I took a bathroom break after 70 questions to clear my head as I felt the anxiety coming on.
Study method: 8/10, which I had started Kaplan Q Banks sooner, I was getting 70s which did not spark confidence.
I saw a lot of questions about puts/calls (4-5, especially like “what was the gain/loss”), 2 about solicitors and a few advertising, two about joint in entirety back to back which made me laugh, most registration questions were about IARs, only maybe 3-4 math questions (ROR!), there were just as many point and clicks as there were head scratchers for me, I had 36 flagged for review which seemed like a cruel joke.
-takes stage with my 🏆 to make my acceptance speech- Overall I am so blessed to finally be done! I’d like to thank my husband, my incredibly patient work, Mr. Tinney and Mr. Caviliere, and my pets for snuggling on the couch with me all those late nights. Couldn’t have done it without you!
My boss already asked about the CFP. So I’ll be catching you on that Reddit! Trust me I will read and do practice questions the FIRST time lol, I learned my lesson.

2023.03.20 21:05 TheEmmaDilemma-1 should i report my professor to my university?

I (19F) attend a state university in a fairly religious state. My online history professor happens to be a member of this majority religion, and he makes that very clear to us in multiple ways. he will sneak in questions and information about this particular religions history into the lectures and study guides, even though there is absolutely zero reference to them in the textbook. he’s an old man that talks like the teacher from ferris bueler, and for the life of me i can’t make it through five minutes of those lectures, so it’s really frustrating searching the dense textbook for information that isn’t there, and then being tested on it in exams that are worth 75% of the overall grade.
What’s more is half of the class is currently failing because of how much information is needed at once for the exams. there are four total, and we have had two so far. only ~30% of the class got above a C- on these exams. The professor sent out an email complaining about this, but when I emailed him offering to share the Quizlets, I make of his study guides with the rest of the class before the next exam to maybe help them study, he told me not to do it because they’re failing since they are “lazy,” essentially (i did it anyway bc fuck that guy i’m not letting half my class fail). 
Oh, he also sent a follow up email after his initial one saying couldn’t share my study sets saying that there was one student i could share them with because they live on the reservation??? which really didn’t make sense to me.
he refuses any extra credit even though more then half of his class his failing, and sent an email saying to just do the work in the first place. the only assignment s we have in this class are weekly discussion posts and the exams, so there’s not much room for error. he said that, in university settings, extra credit is almost not existent, which was a bit silly because all of my other classes offer multiple forms of extra credit.
He has also sent multiple mass emails complaining about people cheating, calling AI (chat gpt) “satanic,” complaining about how he has to spend so many hours “trying to thwart these low life, lazy cheaters.” and essentially using some pretty strong language to describe his opinions on those who are doing poorly in his class. 
I’m actually doing pretty well in his class, but every time i complain about him with my friends they tell me i should report him to the school administration, and i guess i just don’t know if that would be appropriate in this situation. any advice?

2023.03.20 21:05 agirlwithcutemuses Need Help Reducing Debt with Limited Extra Income

Hello! My gf (23 F) went a little overboard with her credit limit after moving out last year, and has reached the limit ($30,000). Additionally, she is currently spending far above her monthly income, and had been charging the extra expenses to her credit card — with little consideration. She wants to take the first steps to stopping this problem and paying down her debt, so she can start managing it and begin to lower it overall.
Unfortunately, her current bills do not allow her to pay more than the minimum on her credit cards. How can she go about paying down this debt with limited extra income? She’s cutting down her spending and only charging things to her debit card in the meantime.
(Her mostly income after taxes and 401k contribution is ~3600 and her blanket bills amount to ~3300 a month (not including money for extras or food). In the past she has drastically overspent on food—which we are reducing, and we are reducing the amount of time/money she spends on extra activities and social things). She can still pay all of her bills, she just needs to pay down the debt and be able to start saving money again.
I’m just posting for her and she knows! She’d like all the help she can get, she knows it wasn’t the best decision but is happily getting back on track.
Any advice would be absolutely wonderful and helpful!

2023.03.20 21:04 robberrito The Nightmare Part 4

Spring break was nice. Gave me the right state of mind to write this chapter, and the next ones coming up within the week. **note that I don't know enough about bug biology so if you have any articles about bug behavior and anatomy that'd be great
DREAMS
-----
First
Previous
-----
I was not entirely sure what happened. All I know is that he walked off to go do his business and he… vanished. Just like that. Almost in an instant. He could not have simply wandered off, he had simply vanished off the face of the earth. I had heard every theory given by the authorities, and none made sense. How could someone walk a few meters behind you and disappear completely?
I paced back and forth in the bedroom of her new house, going over every detail of the situation. It was late at night and we were stargazing. All was extremely quiet. There were no rustles in the bushes or anything during the time that he had vanished, and there were certainly no cries of pain or exclamations of surprise that would indicate he was attacked. I had lost track of him for approximately 12 seconds before he had vanished. When he vanished, I thoroughly searched the surrounding area for any signs of life. Footprints, dens, nests, fluids, and whatever else, I analyzed. I found no evidence that there was anything else in the clearing we were present in except us. This meant that whatever could have possibly taken him did it extremely stealthily.
But why? I sat down on the bed with my hands on my head, pondering the question in grief. Why him? Why the sweet and lovely man that I had known for so long? If he was taken, why must they have chosen the love of my life?
I was filled with both rage and grief. I wanted to punch the wall as I wept, to let my emotions take hold and thrash about wildly in an uncontrollable meltdown, but instead I opted to sit on the ground and cry to myself. No amount of wild tantrums would relieve her of the pain, and I knew that. I permitted my dog to sit next to me and rest his head on my shoulder. I found it comforting.
Once I was done with my weeping, I immediately went back to theorizing. It was surreal, really. The last few days had been a repeat of this situation over and over. I had not been able to make sense of it. It made no sense. It was impossible. Well, according to normal logic it was. Was there anything else I had not considered?
I had done significant research into missing persons cases in similar circumstances as these. People disappearing when they should not have, people vanishing the moment they leave someone else’s sight, and those experienced with nature seemingly going insane and traveling to places they should not have. It was all eerily similar to what she had experienced. They had named these kinds of cases the “Missing 411” cases. Perhaps they would have to add in his case then.
Later that day, after I had done additional research into the situation, I decided that rest would be beneficial for me after I had gone 2 days without sleep. Luckily, it seemed my mind was too tired to protest, and I went to sleep without any sorts of issues.
In my dreams, I imagined myself in a grey void that seemed to stretch in all directions for infinity. I did not mind it, though. I wished to remain alone in that moment. I sat down on the cold, yet soft floor of the void, and simply stared off into the distance.
I imagined seeing him again. Seeing Timothy’s form approaching me and embracing me. Telling me it was going to be okay, that I did not have to worry anymore. I knew it was imaginary, but I refused to admit that. I hugged him and kissed him like he had never left me, like he had never been taken from me. I wrapped my arms around his neck and cried on his shoulder for what felt like an eternity. I wanted him back, my sweet, sweet husband that I had known since high school, I needed him back. He was the only person I could trust, the only one who had confided in me his true feelings, the only one who told me the truth, the only one who really cared.
In that moment, he had disappeared from the void, leaving me alone once again. I was about to let out a wail of grief until I noticed a figure in the distance. It seemed to be a rapidly approaching darkness that grow a little more clear the closer it came. It was almost like I was viewing it through the glass of a shower door.
However, despite its obvious creepiness, I could not bring myself to fear it. Instead, I felt comfort. I did not know why. I knew I should have been afraid, but in that moment, I could not help but draw myself closer. As I approached, the figure of whatever this was became more apparent. It seemed humanoid. It had a pair of legs, a pair of arms, and a head. Every part of its body seemed to be as black as the night, and a cloud of this darkness seemed to follow it as it approached.
As I walked closer, I came across a barrier that seemed to be the source of the blur. I leaned closer, staring at the figure as it come to a stop right in front of the glass. I felt a certain familiarity regarding this figure. Could it be…?
The figure put its hand to the glass, and a pair of white lights shined where its eyes would be.
“Leah?” It asked.
It was him.
I was so shocked she could barely gather the strength to move my own hand up to the barrier, resting my palm across from his hand. As tears fell down my cheeks, I croaked out my own reply.
“Timothy?”
The figure nodded, and soon after, he disappeared from the void, returning to whenever he came from.
I cried once again. Not out of grief, but of joy. Of course, he was still missing, but he was alive. He was still out there somewhere. There was still a chance I could be with him once again.
There were still yet many questions in my mind. Why was there a barrier between me and my love? Where was he? How could I get to him? Was he safe? Could he perish at any moment?
These questions overtook my mind for the entire time I dreamt. I questioned not his appearance or the creepiness associated with it. The only thing on my mind in that moment was my husband, and how I could reunite with him.
The description of the events surrounding this time may be… inconsistent. It was very soon after Timothy had gone missing, and I was very hysterical during this time. However, as far as I can tell, this is what had happened. Following this dream, I remember my awakening as being fully rested and clear of mind. The hysteria had vanished from my mind, and I had given myself one purpose. That is, to figure out where my husband had disappeared to and to reunite with him as soon as possible. Now, my search would have been fruitless had the news that would blast over the entire planet a few weeks later not unveiled itself, as my husband was nowhere where I thought he was. He was, in fact, beyond that.
He had not fully comprehended his situation until after he had woken up in that hole in the side of an alien spacecraft. He probably would have had an emotional breakdown, but something was preventing him from falling into despair. An unusual calmness that held him together in such a difficult time. He elected not to question it and to instead thank it. Now was not the time to panic.
He looked around the hole in the ship, analyzing the changes that had taken place since he was fully conscious. The hole had grown substantially larger, and the cover that he had placed behind him to ensure he was hidden had been… corroded? It was as if some large beast had taken a big bite out of it. Why had that happened?
He decided to intensify his focus on the environment around him, looking for any clues as to how this could have happened. Suddenly, he found the reason. The same… things… he was made of were floating about, consuming bit-by-bit pieces of the ship and (he assumed) using that to multiply or feed themselves or whatever.
He did not like that they were doing that. He really did not need that right now. How could he stopped them from doing that? He attempted to lift his hand to his chin to think for a moment, before realizing that he had lost his humanoid form. He cursed in his head and manipulated his body to the optimal form.
Maybe he could use the same method for those runaway… things? He still did not know what to call them, but he knew that they were tiny swarms originating from a much larger swarm, that being himself. He would just call them swarmites. He focused his will on ensuring the swarmites he saw would return to the main swarm, individually guiding each swarmite back into his care. It worked very well, with all of the littles swarmites returned to their progenitor. Now that that had been taken care of, he needed to ensure that they did not do that when he was busy “sleeping” or focused on other tasks.
He thought for a moment before manipulating his form once again. A thin membrane formed around his body, keeping the swarm in a consistent form outside his will and allowing him to interact with physical world far easier than before. Perfect!
Now that he had finished his task, he looked out to the vast expanse of space. He could not see any ships, which meant they had probably not stumbled across the sight of himself in the hole… probably. In any case, he knew he needed to move now that the hole was exposed, as they would definitely send someone to investigate once they located it. Whoever runs this ship will probably get chewed out for it.
In that moment he remembered those he was fleeing from. The bug people. He barely remembered their shape, as he was too busy escaping their clutches. All he knew is that they had kidnapped him from earth and had fed him to something, and now he was a sentient swarm made of something unknown to even himself. Whatever the case, they seemed to be afraid of him, given the massive amount of munitions they had fired at him once he began to significantly resist. He could not blame them entirely.
He began to float outside the ship and look around. All the ships he had seen earlier were still present, and in much the same positions as before. Hopefully they would not spot him.
He chose the least threatening ship he could and began floating toward it, taking note not to speed toward it lest he make himself more noticeable. The greater the velocity, the greater the energy, after all. Plus, he would rather not crash full speed into a giant spaceship if he failed to slow himself down.
What he did not know in that moment was that he had not taken every part of himself with him. Many swarmites remained behind, and now that their master had left, had taken to drifting through the ship, looking for any openings that would allow access to the habitable parts of the ship, where many bugs walked.
One of these bugs was in the cleaning chambers, using water to wash themselves of any potential germs or gross secretions. It was enjoying itself until a large collection of strange black gas began falling down from a vent above the bug.
“What in…?” the bug did not finish its response as it was forced to cough from the smoke-like gas invading its lungs. After a violent and intense coughing session, the bug regained its faculties.
“Preposterous! I cannot believe the engineers are allowing smoke into the ventilation systems! I am going to strangle them! They have wronged me too many…” the bug said before a stray thought entered its mind. It suddenly found its original mission far less important than traveling to its resting quarters and cuddling with its mate.
“Hm… he is likely feeling quite alone at this moment. I should pay him a visit, I am certain he will enjoy a surprise,” the female bug said. She immediately set her sights on the exit of the bathing quarters and began walking toward the resting quarters, ignoring the fact that she was still wet and had not brought her belongings.

The man said, "I don't have health insurance."
The nun asked if he had money in the bank. He shook his head and replied, "I don't."
The nun asked, "Do you have a relative who could help you?"
He said, "Just a sister, who's a spinster nun."
The nun sternly replied, "Nuns are not spinsters! Nuns are married to God."
The patient replied, "Then send the bill to my brother-in-law."

2023.03.20 21:03 john55155 Struggling in the early stages of my sports tech business idea

Hi everyone,
I am 9 months into my incubation/accelerator programme and I am struggling. I was accepted into this program off of an idea that would see me solving the problems that new rules and regulations are creating in the world of rugby. World Rugby, the governing body of rugby, is stipulating more and more rules that limit the amount of training that players can do a week. I have been working on a solution for the past few months but I am struggling with a few key areas.
My solution is based upon the use of Virtual Reality to simulate a pitch whereby the coach/manager can coach and train the player, either remotely or in person, in a simulated environment during a specific play e.g. during a scrum, lineout, kick off etc.
My first problem is estimating the market size for rugby is difficult. It’s near impossible to find good hard data about how rugby teams are spending their money around the world. The second problem I am facing is validating and verifying this problem at scale. I have interviewed a number of coaches and they have given me some good feedback, but I haven’t been able to widely verify that this problem is painful, and most importantly, worth paying for. Finally, another problem I am running into is that I believe my solution can improve game knowledge and awareness, skills execution and I believe it can reduce training injury risk, how can I convince managers and coaches that this performance boost is worth paying for?
Does anybody have any experience in the sports technology sector? How have you guys found it? I am struggling here in Europe in terms of market reach and discovery.
Any help/suggestions and comments would be welcomed! I am also interested in hearing what would ye do if you were in my situation?
Here are some companies working in this space already: INCISIV - https://www.incisiv.tech/ REZZIL - https://rezzil.com

2023.03.20 21:03 MoTw18 2023 DAT Breakdown (22AA/22TS/17PAT)

2023 DAT Breakdown (22AA/22TS/17PAT)
Scores:
Biology - 21
General Chemistry - 28
Organic Chemistry - 21
RC - 21
QR - 21
PAT - 17
Background:
Nontraditional student, graduated may 2022. Psychology major 3.85 GPA. Previously premed and scored 503 on MCAT (August 2021).
Materials Used:
  1. DATBooster! I truly think it has everything you need and they're always improving and adding new things. It was highly representative and prepares you very well. Biology is VERY representative with some questions similar or same as practice exam. Feralis notes and sheets are great. I personally followed the booster schedule and read feralis notes to get a good base, then focused on cheat sheets and booster quizlet. General chemistry was excellent on Booster. I HIGHLY recommend you read the study notes for each chapter. Orgo is great too, make sure to know reactions, acidity, stability, lab tests and techniques. Booster is ultimately the best resource due to its low price and EXCELLENT study material.
  2. Quizlet - I personally don't like Anki so i used quizlet from booster to memorize information. I think it's important to go be comfortable with your study techniques, so if you don’t like anki don’t be afraid to do something else. I did not rely heavily on quizlet, I used it to initially memorize the information then did practice questions and revisited the topics four to five times. I only used quizlet for biology, everything else I relied on booster practice and notes. If you’re using quizlet, make sure to constantly review material in phase 2 and 3.
  3. Bootcamp Bio Notes - I only used these for a quick refresher on certain topics such as developmental biology and ecology. I only used this in the final 2 weeks. Feralis is great but close to the exam I had to prioritize time so I used those bio notes. They are not too long and tell you what you need.
Study Timeline / How I Studied:
I followed the recommended booster 10 week schedule with minor tweaks of my own. I started light studying in December, then studied 10 weeks. I made my own personal adjustments especially at the end. I targeted my personal weaknesses and drilled information in the last 2 weeks. Do not be afraid to make your own schedule, I just personally like structure and the Booster schedule is easy to follow. During phase 1 of Booster, I began studying at around 10 AM and took breaks and finally stopped studying at around 8 PM. During phase 2, I stopped usually at 5 PM and I never reviewed practice exams the same day I took them. I really recommend doing this as you can take a break, clear your head, and be focused for review and further studying the following day. I made my own quizlet from going over exams, where I’d go over every single question and add terms / concepts I don’t know. I’d make a personal note of topics I need to work on. I printed the organic chemistry reaction packet from Booster and drilled the reactions. Luckily I took organic chemistry II in Fall 2022 so I already knew most reactions. I did the question and reaction banks on orgo and watched videos on reactions I don’t remember like EAS and Radicals. For general chemistry, I relied on the study notes on Booster. I attribute my 28 to the practice exams and notes. I transferred the notes to notability and highlighted and thoroughly went over each topic. For RC, I didn’t study but the method that worked best for me was reading 5-6 paragraphs and answering questions. For QR the practice / formula sheet was enough for me, it’s harder than the real exam but you’ll be prepared.
Day of Exam:
Bio (21): Booster was really representative here with 4-5 questions I’ve seen before. There were a couple questions that threw me off guard and only 1 taxonomy question. I felt the exam mainly focused on genetics, systems, and developmental biology, but every unit was covered. Some questions stumped me but I made an educated guess. The questions are SURFACE LEVEL. There were a few in depth but that’s all. I recommend Feralis, Bootcamp bio notes, and quizlet/anki. I’d make sure to know how to work with dihybrid crosses!
GC (28): I loved this section, it was straightforward with a few harder questions. No math was necessary as it was already set up for me. This question heavily tested concepts such as ideal gas / kinetic molecular theory, the idea that group elements share characteristics, what oxidizing agent really means, etc. They’re testing your knowledge of gen chem with a little math sprinkled in. I did see a question that wanted a classification of a certain element. Tricky because actinides and lanthanides are joined with the rest and my element was in the d block transition metal but also appeared like it was a lanthanide. Be careful! Also, with stoichiometry, if you’re confused you can check with the units cross out / match up.
OC (21): Not a ton of reactions and I can remember them (carboxylic acid + SOCl2, hydroboration of alkene, aldol, what reagent for this reaction). 1 H NMR was tested (1 question), 1 question on IUPAC, 1 question on lab test, specifically bromine test (booster has a sheet, MEMORIZE IT!) Rest were about acidity, stability, hybridization, aromaticity, etc. Booster really helps here pay attention to all hybridization and aromaticity questions on booster. NOTE: my exam had all structures in the format like CH3CH2… make sure you’re comfortable with those.
PAT (17): Don’t ask me anything here I despised PAT. Make sure you’re good on hole punch and cube counting at least. 1 floating cube showed up so know how to do those.
RC (21): I skipped my break after PAT and did this section. I had the adrenaline and mind focus to keep going. Most don’t do this, but I did this for most of my practice.I was really disappointed in this section. I had one really dense passage that was really hard to understand. Recall questions were harder and more critical thinking was needed. I guessed on 10 questions so I’m glad it worked out. All passages were 12-13 paragraphs. My method was reading 5-6 paragraphs and then answering questions. The questions were not chronological for me.
QR (21): Super easy, all questions were straightforward. I was shocked at how simple it was. No geometry, lots of algebra and applied math. Couple really easy probability questions, with 1 coin question really similar to a question I remember on booster. Booster prepares you very well here. I wasn’t sure on 2-3 questions max. Know statistics well and know how to calculate standard deviation / tell set has a greater SD.
Reflection:
Looking at my booster exams, I scored around the same as my highest score. For nearly all sections, I scored about my average. I did not have an increase in every section like many others. I’m extremely happy with my score and I’m glad Booster prepped me very well.
Ending Advice:
I despite standarized testing, feels like torture. Take your time here, have rest days and don’t push too hard. Your hard work will pay off here. You made it this far so you’re extremely capable in acing the DAT. Also if you’re aren't ready, don’t be afraid to push the exam. Better to waste a fee than paying for a retake. You’ll all do great!

2023.03.20 21:01 HistoricalAvocado101 Ducks in a row & First Time Buyer Advice

Hi financiers,
I'm looking for some advice on how best to set myself up to be the most financially stable, and, maximise my capital.
I am 26 and recently qualified as a solicitor which has led to a salary increase to £52k.
I am still living at home with my parents to whom I pay £200 p.m board, which I know is more of a token gesture than anything else.
I am looking to move out as I commute for work which takes an hour each way. I work moderate hours and therefore would like to move closer to my workplace.
I have saved £15k in a LISA which I expect to top up by £4k at the turn of the 23/24 tax year to maximise the government bonus.
I don't have any further material outgoings, I have a lease car which is £180 p.m, a sim only phone contract c.£8 p.m and gym membership £40 p.m.
Realistically, given the current climate, how much do you think I should be looking at spending as a first time buyer? I will be a single applicant on my mortgage and have an agreement in principle for c.£233k.
I ought to note that I will be salary scarficing my £2k over the basic rate towards my pension as the firm I work for match contributions up to 7% and I pay a plan 2 student loan and a post-gradute plan, which equal about £600 p.m.
Aside from purchasing a house, salary sacrificing any salary that falls in to the additional rate and using up my ISA annual allowance, what further do you recommend to maximise my capital in the long term?

What You Get

Phase 0) Digital Economics 101

The Digital Economics 101 module will open 1 week prior to the cohort start date.This is an onboarding module that will get you up to speed so we can get straight into the material.This will be required to finish before the start date.

  • Gain a deep understanding of all of the pieces in the digital economy.
  • Learn about the future of media and code — the front-end and backend of the internet — so you can focus your efforts.
  • Understand digital leverage, distribution, no-code tools, and digital assets so you can take part in the mental & financial wealth transfer.

Phase 1) Creating A Meaningful Niche

Every day I hear people going on and on about trying to find their niche.I also hear people talking about how they don’t know how to combine what they love talking about with what will sell.You already have the answer. You just don’t have the clarity.

  • Develop a long-term strategy to create your own niche — meaning you don’t have to worry about your “competition” playing status games.
  • Discover your life’s work, curiosities, and obsessions. I see too many people that are uncertain about this for years.
  • Cultivate and turn your vision, goals, and values into a brand that attracts an audience you love interacting with (and that will buy from you, and only you).

Phase 2) Content Strategy

There is one thing that separates those who make it in the digital economy and those who don’t.It’s the quality, articulation, and perceived originality of their content.The content you post has to make sense to the people you attract.Everyone has a different voice and tone that they resonate with. That they are congruent with and trust.It has to change their thought patterns or behavior — that’s what makes you memorable.That’s what separates you from the sea of people posting surface-level copy-cat style posts.Example and putting my money where my mouth is:

  • Become an expert-level speaker or writer on the topics you care about.
  • Never run out of content ideas for your posts or promotions (without using content templates — that’s how you stay a commodity).
  • Create posts, blogs, tweets, images, and videos that resonate with other’s on a deep level. People will actually ask you how you got so good at what you do.
  • Separate yourself from the ocean of B-tier creators that struggle to sell their products, services, andhave their ideas stick in the head of their audience.
  • Implement our Epistemic Research Method — which is just a fancy way of saying scientific research method… but it’s for researching your mind to craft brilliant content and product ideas.

Phase 3) Crafting Your Offer

Most people are sitting on a goldmine of skills, experience, and knowledge (that they can use to help people 1-2 steps behind them).That is what people pay for.Considering 95% of the market are beginners… if you are good at something, you can help them get to your level (no matter how “basic” you think the information is).Do you not watch basic content all day anyway? People don’t want new information, they want to be reminded of what works.

  • Use our Minimum Viable Offer strategy to start monetizing immediately (and have something to improve over time, rather than procrastinating until it’s perfect).
  • Have a strategy for reducing the time you spend working over time (as you build leverage and improve your offer).
  • Know how to create your own customers from the audience you are building, instead of “finding” the right customer for your offer.
  • Take the guesswork out of building coaching, consulting, or digital product offers.

Phase 4) Marketing Strategy

You aren’t making money because you aren’t promoting yourself or your offer.That is literally the only way to make money. Have something desirable and consistently put it in front of peoples’ faces.In Phase 4, I will show you how to systemize, automate, and be consistent with simple promotions.You will be able to make money without having the chance of forgetting to do it (or letting fear of failure get in the way).

  • Learn to sell on social media, in your writing, and across different platforms.
  • Have consistent sales coming in while focusing on your meaningful message (no need to sound salesy all the time).
  • Learn advanced automation strategies that you can implement at your own pace, especially once you validate your offer.

Bonus) The Creator Command Center

The Creator Command Center is a Notion template that houses all of the systems.This is how you will manage your brand, content, offer creation, marketing strategy, and systemized promotions for consistent sales.

Bonus) Live Product Build & Launch

In the first Digital Economics Cohort, I built out my course The 2 Hour Writer.I have videos showing how I build it with the strategies in phase 3 and 4.There is a bonus module that shows how I had an $85,000 launch that resulted in my first $100K month.I did this to prove the strategies inside Digital Economics work if you stick to the plan.And, this past Black Friday, I blew my that monthly high out of the water in 4 days.That’s the power of these strategies if you stay consistent with your life’s work.

2023.03.20 21:00 MasalaBoi [review] The Butterfly Effect - Sunny Khan Durrani

I had a heard a lot about this album and i already knew about Sunny Khan Durrani from La Haasil (which i consider a top 10 level dhh song) and Taaray. So while working on my practical file, i played all 3 of his albums in order. Now i didn't really fw Khabbarnaama apart from a couple of tracks and couple of parts here and there. Aetizaaz was a major step up and i really liked it but what blew me away was The Butterfly Effect which made me want to write about it coz apart from a comment or two on the best albums posts, no one was really talking about it.
The cover art shows a butterfly, obviously referencing the butterfly effect the album's theme is based on. The monochrome look matches with the dark tones of the album, similar to his previous album Aetizaaz. In the background, i ain't sure if that's a flower or broken glass. I used to think it's glass but ab lagraha hai it might be a flower.
The intro track, Distant Storms, talks about the butterfly effect, perhaps to fill in those who don't know what it is. The production and his voice sets a dark tone which continues in the rest of the album. The storm and thunder in the background really makes the listener feel like they are in for a dark ride. Really good intro.
Chup Raho 's hook is pretty catchy and the first verse talking about the old generation and figures of authority looking down and trying to dominate the youth is pretty solid. But what absolutely blew me the fuck away was the second part about the teacher blackmailing the girl. I had to stop whatever i was doing because i was absolutely stunned. The loud rough voice of the verse followed by the almost polite tone towards the chorus sent shivers down my spine. This song was the one which made me think that this might really be an actual GOATed album.
Kalakaar aur Dunya is easily one of the best storytelling songs in dhh. The song talks about (from what i understood that is, coz most of the albums in dhh don't have their lyrics released) Sunny and another guy in his class who shared a similar work in school (related to singing or poetry ig?) and though the other guy was better in studying and stuff, skd won some sort of award which the other guy felt that he deserved. After a fight between the two, a few months later, the guy scored less (i am not sure if i heard it right) leading to his parents's divorce and him committing suicide. The song talks about how the world is always against an artist and the pressure they face. Recently, my friend's friend's cousin comitted suicide because of his father's death and the pressure from MBBS. I think i heard this album the next day after that incident, which made me feel the end of the story much more intensely. A great track, arguably on par with storytelling tracks like Balli aur mein though i would still put the latter above.
Mandir Masjid talks about the animosity between the two religions and countries. I feel that the song gives a strong message about how in this obsession to protect our own religion, people from both the sides have forgotten that the other side is still human. Strip away a person's religion and country, and we are not so different really, and that's one of the parts i really liked about the song. I have seen firsthand extremists from both sides and the rising sentiments against each other. The rich and powerful people throw us against eachother while they profit on the blood of the middle class and poor. The song touches on all these topics in an excellent way. Though the end gets a bit repetitive but it's not that major of an issue, perhaps a nitpick. A wonderful song which if people actually listen to, it might lead to a brighter future for this country.
Koi Gila Nahi is a track i have listened to many times before i actually listened to the album. This song has the most replay value from all the songs in this album. SKD talks about how others around him are running for fame and money, sacrificing their art. He talks about the pressures on him and the struggles he goes through inside his own head. I love the production on this song. Though the other songs might have a better message or lyrics than this, it's still the one i listen to the most.
Pas E Parda means behind the curtains. The song talks about the backstage of the industry, how artists have power over their fans and how despite having thousands of fans, an artist still feels alone when he needs support. The hook is sung by Mooroo, feels somber and deep (i ain't talking about lyrically deep, or the voice. I am bad at explaining stuff but it feels deep, perhaps it's the production), i like it. It's a good song, but perhaps my least favorite excluding the intro and outro. I do feel that it's gonna grow on me, especially the hook which i already like a lot.
The outro, Anjaam starts with a line by Sunny, where he says that the butterfly has already flapped it's wings, now the storm is inevitable. Maybe he's referencing to his album, but i didnt really get what he's referring to so if someone else did, they can share it. The rest of the song is just beats. The production of this song and album as a whole is excellent, Sunny is a real good producer for sure. This song is mesmerizing af.
The Butterfly Effect is easily one of the best albums in dhh out there. The melancholic tone from start to finish, something he continues on from Aetizaaz, is beautiful. The stories in these songs send chills down the listeners. Sunny Khan Durrani is easily one of the best poets in the game. I am looking forward to his next album. The intro track just dropped today which I'm gonna listen to after writing this review.
The album is underrated af and deserves a lot more views. If even a couple of people check it out after reading this post I'd be glad.

2023.03.20 21:00 Super-Shenron How would Lee interact with each character of the S2 cast?

People tend to wonder how Lee would affect the plot of S2. Meanwhile, I'm wondering about his dynamic with the rest of the characters from the season. Here's what I'm thinking.
Pete and Luke would have an almost instant liking of Lee for having a good head on his shoulders, which should be a nice change of pace from the rest of their group. Lee would particularly bond well with Luke if he studied any art history relevant to the civil war (which he probably did) and more importantly, he would relate with his struggles in filling Pete's shoes after his death.
Nick will have some trouble trusting Lee, suspecting him to be linked with Carver. But I think he'll come to realize Lee truly means no harm and will come to trust his instincts when it comes to handling Walter. From his perspective, Lee would probably see another Ben in him and try to guide him any way he can to spare him the same fate as the young lad.
Carlos though? The guy wasn't exactly Clementine's biggest fan to begin with, so a grown man whose protective instincts towards Sarah are triggered enough to speak out about his parenting methods will immediately earn his disapproval. It doesn't help that Sarah will probably like the guy since he's shown himself to be good with kids and he's actually open to teach her how to take care of herself.
Rebecca and Alvin will of course be divided on whether to trust him or not, which may take the former a bit longer than it did for Clementine in canon. Meanwhile, Lee won't be happy to hear about her history with Carver. There are debates about her bond with Carver being nonconsensual, but the way she worded it in the game and her reluctance to tell Alvin will definitely have Lee interpret it as anything else but cheating... and we know exactly what his feelings about it are.
As for Carver himself... well, they're not gonna be best friends. Carver would see Lee as a threat to his authority just like Kenny. Lee, as a black history teacher who's a civil war buff, Carver (ya know, the people enslaving tyrant) is pretty much everything he stands against.

2023.03.20 20:59 koakanesan [Method] Productivity for the analytical mind, part 3: How to be introspective

(Please read the disclaimers and part 2 before you continue reading this post )
Welcome back to the second part of introspection, we previously explored why being contemplative is an integral part of improving as an individual, and now we'll explore how we should go about it.
As mentioned in the previous post, I define introspection as the ability to perceive, label, and process your internal experience. We'll be looking at each part of the process in depth.
Let's start with perception: how do you go about it?
Fortunately, for most of us, it can be easily done by removing distractions from our minds and simply shifting attention inwards.
You can do that by creating a space in which you allow the brain to sit in a "vacuum," so to speak, where it can't get distracted.
You can try this now by sitting down in a comfortable environment with nothing but a pen and a piece of paper, you can also listen to some white noise, or just relax in your cozy bed.
You have the flexibility to do it however you want as long as you fulfill the following: No easily accessible distractions and an uninterrupted time for you to sit within that physical space (start with 10-20 minutes if you haven't done this before).
Once you do that, your mind and body will populate your experience with all kinds of thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations. It can be quite amazing (and scary) to see how fast this happens.
Now we get to the interesting part, instead of reaching out for your usual distraction, you just need to do nothing, yes, nothing. Just stay with that experience.
An important disclaimer before we continue: Your experiences will vary wildly from each other, including the severity.
If you feel like you truly can't sit with whatever comes up and are filled with immense fear, anger, or sadness (if you rate it as 7/10 or above in terms of discomfort ) then I would highly recommend walking that path with a therapist.
Consult someone who will hold your hand and provide you with the care you need until you can tolerate that experience on your own.
On the other hand, if you feel like the experience isn't that bad, then you may keep experimenting.
You won't be able to "see" at first since your mind is going to process what is happening. Some of the reactions might be quite negative and a little bit overwhelming to you.
It is also normal if you feel that your experience is somewhat foggy or hard to discern what's happening there. This is going to be like learning how to walk. At first, things are going to be messy, but the success is in staying in the mess until your body is familiar with the environment and can tolerate it.
Do this for 10-20 minutes a day, three times a week as a start, and increase the dose as you see fit. The important step here is to just do nothing and to let your mind be as messy as it wants to be, sit there, and pay attention to it.
Then, once you feel like the experience is manageable, try to understand what is happening to you. You do so by directing your attention to the sensations you feel and trying to make sense of them.
Let me illustrate: Try to put your finger on the palm of your hand and move it slowly. Can you perceive that? If yes, then how did you do that?
Well, the answer is that you just do. You always perceive, all the time.
Where that perception goes is the difference, that is attention!
If you were playing a game or deeply involved in any activity and something brushed against your legs or back. Chances are you won't notice it. The reason being is that all of your attention is directed toward something else, so your mind doesn't have similar bandwidth for other inputs.
So what you're doing is shifting attention from one point to another, and that is what you need to practice, shifting your attention from point A to point B.
This is why it is important to create a space with no distractions where you direct your attention to the immediate feedback you receive from your body.
That is, dear stranger, how you perceive your internal experience!
(I realize that this does seem quite obvious to some of you)
Okay, so if I want to "see" then I need to get rid of distractions and shift my attention to my body, right?
Yes, that is exactly it. If you find yourself speed-running this, then you can move into the nuances of your feelings and thoughts.
Okay, then what about the other two?
Yes, let's do the second one, labeling. How do you go about that?
The obvious answer is to just label your experience, which doesn't seem challenging, right?
While I agree that it does seem easy, labeling your experience can be quite challenging once you clear the beginner level. Let us go through these levels together.
Beginner level:
Can you differentiate between physical sensations, thoughts, and emotions:
Can you label each one: "okay this is a thought", "Oh I see, this is an emotion" or "Oh this is an emotion with physical sensations" etc.
If you can do that, then congratulations, you can move on to the next level!
Intermediate level:
Can you name the emotion you're feeling: Is it anger, fear, happiness, shame, pride, or disgust: "I just finished this task, it took me so much time and effort, but I was able to do it, you know! I feel good about myself"
Can you put your thoughts into words: "I think I disagree with what you said, I think that having A and B alone is nonsense".
Can you describe the physical sensation in detail: " I feel a tightness around my chest and a weird feeling in my throat"
I would recommend using the famous feelings wheel as a helpful guide. Many of my clients have found this to be quite useful. The way you use it is fairly straightforward: go through the basic emotions(angry, fearful, bad, surprised, happy, sad, disgusted) and see which one will "click" with you or feels the closest to what you're experiencing.
Then move to the next stage (e.g: looking at the angry section, are you feeling humiliated, bitter, or mad?).
Then move on to the next stage (e.g: Feeling jealous).
Great! Now, you have a more nuanced view of your experience.
If you cleared this level, then congratulations. You can now move to the advanced level.
Advanced level:
Can you expand on the nuances of the internal experience:
Emotion: "I feel a sense of pride that I was able to finish this task. I am relieved that I was able to achieve this. At the same time, I feel sad that this journey has come to an end. This was quite the journey!"
Physical sensation: "I feel this tightness in my chest and there is this weird sensation at the back of my throat, it almost feels like my throat is dry. I also notice a strain on my eyes, I think I'm about to cry"
Thought: " I think that the issue you didn't mention here is that X, Y, and Z are fundamental parts of the process and while I agree that A and B are important as well, I don't see how we can dissociate the two processes from each other as it will result in issue C, D, and E"
Do you see, dear stranger, how we managed to go from simple labels to descriptions and expansions and how that allows us to have a greater understanding of what's going on?
The important thing to mention here is that you're not going to be at the same level across all the dimensions of your experience. Chances are you're going to be fairly good at one of the three (relatively speaking). You may find it fairly easy to describe physical pain in great detail, or you can write an entire paragraph on why you think this post is a waste of your time, or you can talk for a whole hour about how sad you are over the loss of someone you care about.
It's even a little more nuanced than that. For example, you may be very fluent at speaking "sad", but you may find it challenging to speak "angry", "loved", or "scared".
The unpredictable nature of human life will predispose you to be good at some things and not at others, which is normal. Therefore, if you find it easy to speak one dialect, that doesn't mean there is no area of improvement there. This also means that if you can't speak another dialect, then that also doesn't mean that things are hopeless. Being able to put your experience into words and expand on its nuances is a lifelong skill. You will get better at it the more you try to do it. Use the feelings wheel, talk to friends, or work with someone. The important thing to me is that you keep trying to express what you feel.
This finally brings us to the third point: processing!
Luckily, for processing, you only have to do half the work. Your mind will do the rest (given the right space to do so).
So what is emotional processing?
It is how your brain manages to understand your experience of the world and integrates that model as part of you. This usually will allow you to manage highly emotional states and go back to your baseline.
Let's look at a classic example: Break-ups.
Let's say that you have been with a person for some time and now you have both come to the decision to end things.
Well, at first, this change is going to feel drastic, but as time goes on and as you grieve properly, you will notice that your brain has naturally "adapted" to this change. That adaption is your brain processing the experience you went through. You might even have discovered that you have gained some insight into how to navigate romantic relationships in the future.
So what you're saying is processing is like moving on? Yes, to a certain extent, it is the ability to walk through the experiences you have, make sense of them and adapt to them by either shifting to a different model or by grieving some part of the old model.
I'm lumping the self, relationships, belongings, and ideas into one group called "model").
The good news is that if you allow your brain the space and time to feel, and make sense of things, then most of the processing will be done for you.
Unfortunately, our technology-driven lifestyle robs us of this ability. Being a little more intentional about this can be quite helpful.
The good news here is that paying attention and labeling your experience is technically part of processing your emotions, so you're halfway there!
Here is a breakdown for the rest:
First, create the space as we discussed. This is the seeing that we talked about, take some time out of your day to just have some alone time.
Second, pay attention to your external experience, and be present. The aim here is to try to understand and not change.
Third, Inquire:
Let's take X for example. On Tuesday morning, while going to work. A coworker of X said: "Hi, X!" and X felt this sudden urge to be aggressive towards coworker A.
Let's see how we can be introspective and process our experience by modeling X's behavior:
X: "Okay, so what was that all about, I was walking to work, as usual, coworker A said hi and I wanted to punch him in the face"
Okay, this is great, X took the first step, and the door is open, X took some time to think about this and shifted his attention inward. What's next? That's right, time to label.
X: "Well, thinking back on it, I felt angry all of a sudden. Wait, was I angry at him?"
Again, try to inquire and ask questions, the aim here is to empty that emotional energy that is stored within you. We're going to keep expanding on how X feels until he has nothing to say about that specific situation anymore.
X:" I don't think I'm angry at him necessarily. It's just that he is so annoying"
X: "Wait, why do I find him annoying?"
X: "Umm, It just feels so fake, like the way he greets us doesn't feel genuine and that makes me angry"
Okay, X is doing great here. He managed to stay curious, dig deeper and expand on how he felt. The next question would be, what about his greeting that makes him feel not genuine?
X: "Thinking back on it, he is always smiling and happy, but I know for a fact that this is not possible. Like how can he be happy all the time?"
Interestingly, it seems that X is more bothered by coworker's A attitude and how his smiling is bothersome to him because it is impossible to be that happy.
X: "I don't know, I just feel like, are you so happy that you want to rub it in my face every morning?"
We started with anger, and now it seems that the experience is shifting to another emotion.
X: "Wait a second, I'm envious of the guy, haha, oh my god! I'm envious of the guy, but why?"
Again, X is curious, asking questions, and making sense of things.
X: "I think I hate that I don't have what he has. It's like even though we're on the same boat I don't get to feel what he's feeling"
X: "Wait, I'm dissatisfied with my life, and I'm envious of him?! I also feel bad about not being able to achieve the same things at work. Wait, I can't really tell what this feeling is, let me get that feelings wheel that the guy talked about"
Great job at noticing when labeling gets difficult
X:" Oh, here it is, now let's see, there it is, shame! I'm feeling shame! wow, that is quite the surprise, I am ashamed of myself?!"
X:" Wait a second, so you're telling me that the reason I'm annoyed with him is that he's doing better at me in life even though we have the same job, and I feel ashamed about that. I'm also envious because I don't have what he has and every time he greets me with a smile it feels like he is rubbing it in my face!
What! I have never looked at it this way, wow, just wow! I mean this is alarming, I gotta apologize to the guy"
And that is an exaggerated and accelerated example of processing. What you see here is that X was living in ambiguity. By digging into that ambiguity and by labeling his experience and making sense of it, he was able to shift his perspective and "move on" from the previous model to a new one.
There might be some additional steps that he needs to go through before moving on completely and overcoming the feelings of shame and inadequacy, at the same time, he was able to start his journey by simply keeping a curious mind, asking questions, trying to understand, and making sense of things.
Once your mind clicks, when you have these "oh I see" moments in your reasoning, then that means your brain has acquired a new piece of data to integrate.
The other important thing to mention here is that sleep is also vital for processing.
If you feel like you haven't made much progress doing introspection for that day. I would highly recommend waiting until the next couple of days to check in with yourself. Some of the steps for "moving on" require some processes that are only available through sleep. So wait a day or two, then see how you feel about the issue.
The other important variable is time. Processing takes time and is not a linear process. You will find yourself going back to some points over and over and over until they click. Once they do, however, you will notice that those same issues won't feel as bothersome to you as they used to.
That is it; that is how you go about introspection, now go out there and open the door to the mysteries of your own mind! :)
Alright, dear stranger, this brings us to the end of today's post. I hope that I was able to shed some light on the importance of introspection as an integral part of change.
I'll see you all in next week's post: The why.

2023.03.20 20:59 dullaveragejoe Historical Christianity

When I first began questioning my religion 20ish years ago, I was very interested in finding out the historical truth of what Jesus really said. Catholic, Evangelical, JW, Anglican, etc people all believed vastly different things. Their had to be some way to know the truth without relying on what your parents taught. Many redditors seem to have/had the same questions. Hopefully providing this info will help someone else.
History of course is not a hard science. Ideally, a large number of disinterested sources which corroborate without collaberating leads to near certainty. Otherwise, we use the best evidence we have. The following is meant to be objective, the consensus of the experts in the field. If something is disputed by a sizable minority of experts, I've added a qualifier ("probably"). Please offer corrections, or subjective discussions, in the comments.
I. Historical Background. We're talking about the area around the Mediterranean Sea in the first few centuries CE. Moral people followed the rules of society and liberty was not yet a concept. Women were the inferior property of men, slaves were naturally to obey their masters, the poor and rich both had roles assigned at birth. Those who rebelled against social norms were often murdered. Vast majority were polytheist, small minority were Jews who only worshipped one god. Vast majority (>90-95%) were illiterate. Those who wanted a copy of a writing copied it by hand themselves (or via a trained slave) on their own time. Writing was done on papyrus scrolls without spaces,capitals, or punctuation. Those copying texts often changed the original either by accident or to suit their own purpose.
In 63 BCE the Romans took over the Jewish city of Judea. Many sects of Jews which each had their own ideas how to best follow the OT Law. Pharisees focused on literal, Sadducees were wealthy/powerful priests focused on temple, Essanes believed in keeping to themselves. Many also apocalyptic, including John the Baptist, believed God had let Devil rule world which is why sickness/death/wafamine were everywhere. But any day now God would annoint one or more human messiah's(Greek translation-Christ) to become a powerful priest/king and rule God's kingdom on Earth where everyone would come back to life and there'd be no more hardship.
II. Life of Jesus (The first 50 years of Christianity.) 30 CE Jesus is crucified- based only on the Bible itself. There are no physical evidence or first hand accounts of Jesus. There are misattributions or frauds but no first hand stories of his disciples either. There are though only a handful of accounts of anyone who lived/died at the time/place.
Likely Jesus=Yeshua was born as a poor Jew in the small town of Nazareth (northern Palestine.) A working class "tekton"(construction worker) he followed John the Baptist then later became a teacher to Jews in rural Galilee. Possibly taught that the apocalypse was immenent and that all should follow the heart of the Torah, to love God/neighbors. Associated with poosick. Traveled to Jerusalem for passover, created a disturbance in the Temple. One of his followers handed him over to Saducees who handed him to Roman governor Pilate for conspiracy against Rome (calling himself the Jewish King.) Pilate ordered him crucified like any other political troublemaker.
Disciples were perhaps briefly distraught by reality that their king was killed as a criminal. But soon began spreading stories orally in Aramaic that Jesus was annointed after death and resurrected after crucifixion.
50 CE- Paul dictates his genuine letters to scribes in Greek: Gal, Romans, 1 Cor, 2 Cor, Philemon, Philippians, and 1 Thess. Tells how he was a Jewish Pharisee who persecuted Christians (maybe because the idea that the mighty Jewish king was actually a poor crucified criminal was blasphemous.) Had a revelation, met PeteCephas and Jesus' brother James. Is now certain the rapture is coming during his lifetime. Disagrees with disciples who think salvation just for Jews- Gentiles, women, poor, slaves, all who behave themselves to be saved.
66-70 CE- Judean Jews rebel against Rome, lose, Temple is destroyed.
III. First Gospels written (70-90 CE)
Most likely Mark written first, original ends at 16:8.
Then a lost sayings Gospel known as "Quelle/Q". Matthew, Luke and Thomas written later based on Q.
All of the above written in Greek. First surviving copies from 250CE or later, Papyrus 45 esp. P52 and 90 have few sentences of Jesus' trial with Pilate now found in John 18 dated to 150 CE. P104 has a parable from Q dated to 150CE.
IV. Historical Sources that Christians exist in 1st Century
93CE Josephus wites history of Jews starting with Adam/Eve. Writes that in 66CE James, the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, was stoned.Antiquity of the Jews book 20 ch 9 Earlier book 18 passage either partly or completely forged.
100 CE- Papius of Hierapolis mentions Mark, sayings gospel, and Luke/Acts. Survives only as quoted by later Church fathers.
c. 100 CE Two early Church teachings the Didache and 1 Clement
112 CE Pliny the Younger discusses Christians with emporer Trajan in Letter 10
115 CE Historian Tacitus writes in the Annals about Christians, who worship a Christ, put to death under Pontius Pilate during Tiberius' reign.
V. Christianity Split Into Large Branches (2nd & 3rd Century)
Many sects splintered off which each had their believers, rituals, and wrote their own texts. To oversimplify- A) Ebionites believed Jesus was a man adopted as God's son at either his baptism or death. Only observant Jews can be Christian. Followed Matthew's Gospel which portrays Jesus exactly like OT prophets. (Virgin birth possibly created as Greek speaking author misunderstood Isaiah's prophecy.)
B) Marcionites/Docetics believed Jesus was really the true God, and OT God was false. Used Luke which portrays Jesus as completely divine. Also Gospel of Peter.
C) Gnostics believed salvation found in hidden knowledge of Jesus' teachings. Most likely believed world created by a lesser demon of OT and true God is hidden. Many are seperationists-believe Jesus was a fusion of man and God- and follow Mark (Spirit enters Jesus at baptism and leaves him on cross.) Likely also used Thomas. Later wrote Phillip, Mary, James, Gospel of Truth, Apocryphon of John, etc)
d) Pre-Catholic Orthodox. This is the group that won so we have the most evidence of. Believed in martyrdom since death of Jesus important. Starting with Iraneus in 180 CE write mountains against heretics. Ironically, some beliefs of each early Church father (Iraneus,Tertullian, Hippolytus, Origen) later decided to be heretical. The slurs used against "heretics" were most likely false, as they contradict the discovered Gnostic texts.
In Against Heresies iii Iraneus writes that John's Gospel was specifically written (after 100CE) to counter the claim that Jesus was a different God from that who created the world. Notice how John's is the only Gospel to firmly claim Jesus to be God (and the only God at that.)
IV. Catholicism Established 4th c Emporer Constantine legalized Christianity in 320CE. As the orthodox group held the most power they were able to establish their beliefs via the Nicene Creed in 325CE, other branches became heretical and illegal. 350 CE- Codex Sinaiticus our oldest nearly complete NT dated, close to modern version. 381- Council of Constantinople irons out concept of trinity.
Further reading This is mostly based off my notes of the NT scholar Bart Ehrman's books, especially misquoting Jesus, although I did try to be objective.
Read the current Bible here NRSV most accurate English.
The Gnostic writings can be found here
The 70ish papyri fragments we have can be viewed here for those who can read konic Greek.
TLDR
Nothing was written during Jesus' life or by his followers. Jesus wasn't considered a god at all until 100 CE. Much less the only god. The concept of the Trinity and that our bible is only accurate version is from the 4th century-over 300 years later.

2023.03.20 20:59 Grouchy-Ad-667 My (24F) parents (52F, 54M) are asking me for money to help them out of debt

In short, my parents are in a lot of debt right now. Nothing shady happened, just years of not living within their means (having 4 kids, building a large house on a large lot on one income, pool, NYS taxes etc.) catching up to them. It's finally come to the point where they've got nowhere else to turn, taxes are due and penalties are maxed out and are not able to out-work the debt.
So, a couple months ago my dad came to me and basically told me that, as much as it pains and embarrasses him, he has to ask me for a lot of money. Then he had told me it *might* come to this, and just yesterday he suddenly told me I needed to decide in the next day or so.
I have a decent amount of savings, but giving them what they need just to pay back the penalty fees would drain me financially and would set back my own financial goals.
My dad swears I'll get the money back. I trust him not to screw me over purposefully, but I don't trust I'll get it back in time for when I need it ( mainly to pay back student loans this upcoming fall). This would also leave me without an emergency fund.
Now I still live with them and they've been gracious enough not to charge me rent, which I have offered to do. I do feel I owe them something money-wise, and I want to help, but where is the line between equalizing/helping them and hurting myself?
Not sure if this is the right sub, but I'm more concerned with how to handle this on an inter-personal level rather than what the financially responsible choice would be, so I thought it might be appropriate.
TLDR: Parents need my money to help them out of debt, unsure what to do

2023.03.20 20:58 BigRock15 HP Omen 15 Motherboard

Hey guys, 2 years ago bought an HP omen 15 that has worked great. Recently, it crashed while gaming and would not power back on. I dropped it off at Micro Center and they’re saying it’ll be $1150 + tax because they have to replace the motherboard, but after looking on EBay I’m seeing the same motherboard for $500-$700.
Wondering if anyone can give me advice on how to handle, they said I can source the part myself and just pay labor, but implied that’s very risky and the part won’t be under warranty and may not work. Really appreciate any help!
