I have watched hours-and-hours of footage and posts surrounding the unfortunate, horrible situation. In my opinion, even with all the slowing down and brightening of photos and videos there is still not 100% definitive visual proof of shark(s) in the water. I believe I see them, but the contrary opinion of waves, pixels, or kicks are just too entirely possible to rule out. That being said, it took me days of “research” to form my final opinion. I have applied some logic and application of facts that lead me to believe that we are absolutely witnessing a shark(s) attack in real time. I haven’t seen anyone with my exact theories so I will make my first ever Reddit post and/or comment. submitted by DCTJBH to lastimages [link] [comments]
1) so many are asking why no other videos or first hand eye witnesses commenting. They are obviously being suppressed. The reason we see the one video is because it is on snapchat which was likely sent out “Live” rather than recorded and posted later. It was sent out before they even “knew” what exactly happened. I also believe the fact that the video we have all seen does not DEFINITIVELY show proof of what happened is another reason the poster initially posted in the first place. He may not have initially known when posting what he was actually posting. Obviously, the authorities, the cruise ships operating company, and other important figures have a million reasons to minimize or hide the absolute proof of sharks rather than the juvenile bad decision “lost at sea” theory. The idea of a shark attack like this is much more damaging to their businesses and imagine than a kid lost at sea due to his own bad decision. What if an innocent tourist accidentally falls in the water on their cruise, should they expect to be instant shark bait? See how it could benefit some to hide it? Also, it provides the family with a teeny tiny bit of privacy and decency to leave the shark inevitability out of it as well. It’s not as vicious to think about him dying via shark rather than not violently to the sea. Once authorities, powerful companies, and the victims families all have reason to suppress evidence and proof, they have a lot of threatening power they can use on teens that “leak” the truth. The teens were likely asked to wipe or clean video evidence and told to stay mum on the situation to avoid lawsuits. It benefits absolutely nobody to admit it was a shark attack.
2) I have seen this point a few places but it’s the most definitive proof in my mind he was killed by sharks. People (onlookers) do not react in such a terrifyingly, horrifying way as they do in this video if someone voluntarily jumps in to a body of water. Even with the possibility that some have mentioned that the current washes him away to never be found again is not an immediate thought that would require nearly every onlooker to scream as frighteningly and terrifying as the woman in the distance is screaming as well as almost everybody we hear. I’m a 34 year old father of 3 that considers myself fairly common sensical and the thought you could jump off a deck boat and disappear simply due to current and never be seen again wouldn’t even cross my mind until way after the reality the person was gone set in. These people let out deathly screams immediately upon seeing “something”. They all clearly saw something that this video doesn’t (clearly) see. That being said, the “bye bye” guys comment would need major explanation for me to make sense of that. That is quite possibly the least sensitive thing you could say witnessing something like that, regardless what happened.
3) I believe that each time a shark or sharks clearly breach the water and/or attack is when the camera pans out of focus. If you have ever been trying to film something and instead of watching your camera your eyes focus to the actual action, you lose focus on your camera. I’m pretty sure that’s what happens on all three pans here. The action in the water in those moments caused his attention to focus there rather than his phone. You can hear the moment the screams turn from exhilaration in a good way (holy shit bro just jumped!) to exhilaration in a bad way (holy shit, there’s something in the water with him)!
Would love to know your thoughts on my theories.

Going from 98 to 95 over and over and over and over again does a number on your confidence.
Deck that dragged my nearly soulless husk got me there was some jank I made up at the beginning of the season to incorporate Nebula. Great for getting me from 60 to 80 until Kitty showed up and then it was pain. It does help that the guardians look amazing in purple tho. Beauty is pain.
Cycled between a Nighthawk Devil Dino deck and BPGC deck shared by u/Captain_Fire92
that got me to 85 - 90 and then I got stalled again. OH AND DID I STALL. Stayed at 85 - 90 for days. Anytime I got close to breaking to 91 I'd go right back to 85.
These two decks did finally push me to 95 but then i hit a swarm of combo bounce decks. Spent the last 24 hours trying to taste the sweet nectar of Infinite ™.
Once I got to the last 3 hours I gave up and swapped back to Gamors.
It's surprisingly effective at starving decks that need the real estate to dump their hands. It doesn't need to worry about filling out the zones created by storm either. Since we have Shanna and Doom.
It's also great at locking out Galactus decks if you have Spidey and Absorbing man in hand and guess their location right.
Take the following with a grain of salt (I'm not that good) but best hand curve usually goes something like
T1: Nebula at far right - unless the first location is Lechuguilla and you want to force them to keep diluting their draws.
T2: Zabu (anywhere) or Starlord (Usually on Nebulla's location)
T3: Storm (Nebulla's location) of anywhere you feel is more optimal OR Drax on Nebulla if you have Zabu.
T4: Drax on Storms lane OR if you have Shanna / Doom you lockdown a more optimal location with spidey.
T5: Spidey / Absorbing man to double up on the lockdown OR Gamora depending on what deck your playing against
T6: Dr Doom OR Shanna + any other playable card in hand.
Oh and Absorbing man is pretty versatile and opens up some sweet reversals depending on the location.
Nothing says I love you like Shang-chi into Shang-chi at Nidavellir.
Or Dr Doom bots into Dr Doom bots if you get Project Pegasus.
Or Shanna into Absorbing man to fill up any remaining spots or hard to reach areas like Sanctum. Just be aware of the dreaded Blade into Blade combo. Makes your hand disappear.
Anyways, I'm going to bed. https://preview.redd.it/kdh9pkgh9b4b1.png?width=1029&format=png&auto=webp&s=5b57685d7bfb383934ecf87b0fbccb9ab31fc1b2
2023.06.06 05:34 redraiden3 Am I explaining or using ADHD as an excuse?
I recently had a breakup of a relationship that was nearly two years long. Over a three week period, I presented links of articles to my ex in what I felt was an attempt to explain (not excuse) how ADHD has affected my life and our relationship. I fully accept that I wasn't managing my condition for almost 20 years and how I got to this point. I'm aware there were times it seemed I was inattentive to her needs or I didn't express interest in her ideas but I feel that my (unmanaged) ADHD didn't allow me to fully engage in those situations.
I.e. Planning date ideas such as going to concerts (I've never been to a single one, never been a fan of live music but I was open to the idea of going to one with her) Or her having an emotional situation and I say something she feels is inconsiderate even though I believe it to be a positive aspect of her. (I'll explain more if asked about this situation in the comments)
Even now as I write this, I get this feeling in my gut that my ADHD was to blame because my intentions and perceived actions weren't in alignment.
So was it ADHD or not? I want be clear where the fault truly lies for my own growth and sanity.

2023.06.06 05:34 cyberdoritos I was in a car crash with my friends and boyfriend. We're fine but I cannot stop thinking about it.
Trigger warning; car accident;
A bus hit us, the car's side where there were me, my boyfriend and our friend. Somehow we all are fine and none's hurt, but I can't stop thinking about seeing the front of the bus, me hugging my boyfriend trying to protect him and all I could thought was: "my God, [our friend's name]" because it mostly hit him. Luckily and I truly don't know how, he didn't get any hurt... We still don't know how.
I don't know how to feel.
My boyfriend, as always, took care of me. After sometime, I dissociated a bit and that's it. I got really dizzy. I started acting childish, making morbid jokes and saying nonsense things. Episodes like that has happened before (me losing control over my mind and having some type of breaking down), but this one was harder. I started acting restless and honestly I don't remeber everything.
I can recall some moments 40 minutes after the collision, my boyfriend took me to a place so we could drink something and rest. I know now he noticed. I cannot remember everything during our walk, but I can remember him saying everything we were doing like an instruction ("well, now we're crossing the street", "take care, hold my hand") and he laughing over something I don't remember I said, things like this.
I don't know how to feel. I keep rewatching the scene of me holding him harder and the bus appearing near and nearer. I cannot stop thinking about this. He was almost sleeping while laying his head on my shoulder.
The worst part is to think that before everything, I was sitting in the place where my friend was. We changed because I got out the car for some reason then he asked me to sit there (right side, passenger seat). Then my boyfriend say he'd go in the middle and I sat in the left side. The bus hit right in the place where I was.
It's weird. I feel weird. I didn't see "my whole life in front of my eyes", but I understand that a single different move could've ended us. I don't realize that we were lucky, I can't remember everything. It's feeling weird. I need to take it off my chest even though it's very recent.

2023.06.06 05:33 CSDragon Does Sarina become more relevant to Ruby's story?
I'm only a few episodes in right now, but so far it feels like the only reason for Ruby to have been Sarina before, is so that Aqua would have someone to talk to over the course of the first episode.
Gorou is extremely important to Aqua's story, because he really never stopped being Gorou, a doctor and more importantly, an adult. Aqua couldn't have done the things he did without being Gorou, nor would he have nearly the same motivation since he wouldn't have been his father's first victim. It also affects his relationships with others since he isn't quite comfortable being an adult making friends with children his physical age.
But Sarina was 12 when she died. By the end of the prologue Ruby has spent more time as Ruby than she ever did as Sarina. And despite having lived 26 years her mental age is pretty much the same as her physical age. Sarina's backstory doesn't really add a whole lot to her character either. Does she want to be a dancer and idol because she was denied a functioning body as Sarina? No, there was one scene about Ai helping her get over her muscle memory, and her actual motivation is to Ai proud. Heck, she mostly wants to forget her past as Sarina since it was a tragic life.
And to top it all off, nobody knows or cares that she even had a past life. In 14 years Aqua never pressed further than "oh you're reincarnated too". The biggest justification for Ruby being Serina would be being able to reconnect her friendship with Gorou
Don't get me wrong, I like both Ruby and Serina, and I wouldn't want to see either of them removed. But I also wonder how different the story would be if they were completely separate characters, and Ruby was a normal child, not a reincarnation.
I have been told that Serina will be getting some attention soon in the manga, but does it actually take 119 chapters for Serina to matter to Ruby's story?

2023.06.06 05:32 amnesiac_22 Quitting while I'm ahead
I am nowhere near the same place as many people when it comes to the addiction. But I thought I should share here.
I am a total zoomer, 20 years old. Anti-smoking sentiments have been drilled into me my entire life, I thought it was punk and cool to start smoking, and obviously after puffing on things designed to be addictive for a few weeks, I was hooked. I haven't had nearly enough time smoking to feel any adverse effects, but tonight after chaining three in a ten minute drive, I knew I couldn't justify it to myself any longer. I tossed all my packs.
I smoked to be cool, I smoked to try it out, I smoked to relax. It just made me poorer, more anxious, and I have gotten all I need from them. I don't need nicotine.
Thankfully I have only smoked for about 6 months. Quitting should be much easier.
I am going to delete my reddit posts on pro-cigarette subreddits, block all cigarette youtubers and such. I don't need it in my life!

2023.06.06 05:31 kinkyfetishmemes New Paperless Order System?
I just went to BWW and was informed that they would be trying out a new paperless order system. We were informed that this was the very first day they were doing it, and that were were some of the first people to be trying it out. Instead of getting regular menus we were told to scan a QR code that brought us to a prompt to put in a phone number to get a verification code. After you verify, you're finally allowed to view the menu and place an order. When you hit "place order" instead of being able to start a cart, you have to put in a debit or credit card before you can place your order. At the bottom, there's a message that says you won't be charged at time of placing your order, but if after 70 minutes of leaving the restaurant and not having paid, you will automatically be charged. Then you're allowed to begin your order.
Firstly I understand why they are doing this. 1. They want to stop dining and dashing. 2. They want to stop people from complaining of their server mishearing their order.
Despite this, I think this system has major flaws and I most likely will not be going back after this experience. The main gripe I have with this is I always pay cash at restaurants. And this system is not very cash friendly at all. During my experience, when I paid cash, the system kept prompting me to pay on the site with a card, even after our server took our cash. We waited about 5-10 minutes with this message after watching our server take my cash and put in the computer, until it finally said the payment was processed ensuring no second charge. Besides the inconvenience of having to wait, I don't like to give out my card info or phone number without reason. Now BWW has my card in their database even though they didn't need it for my transaction.
This system also proves to be a problem for those without cards or phones because they can't even begin to place an order without either of these things. Additionally, although our server was friendly and I tipped her well, she didn't really do anything besides hand us the food and less charitable tippers would rightly feel a lack of need to pay for their service. Now before you write this off as an old boomer complaining about technology, I am 22, grew up with the internet, and prefer self checkouts. I just think this has gone too far and is engaging in annoyingly unnecessary upfront promises of payment before I can even think about getting a service (I have never dined and dashed in my life, why am I getting punished by having to potentially allow my card information to be held in a database or leaked?).
What are everyone's thoughts on this? Is this happening at BWWs near you or am I dining at a pilot restaurant?
P.S. The new system is also really obnoxious when you want to put stuff on the side. You only have two options: have it on or take it off. You can add additional serving instructions but there is no option for me to put my pickles on the side!!!!

2023.06.06 05:28 _RATS I think I might have made Malak impossible for myself
I've been playing through the first KOTOR and enjoying it a lot, but overall I'm not too knowledgeable about these types of RPGs and may have made the final boss nearly impossible. I have been able to saber throw the Jedi so he can't heal anymore, but I still can't put a dent in him without getting locked into combat and immediately dying.
My build is as follows:
- STR: 14 (2)
- DEX: 16 (2)
- CON: 10
- INT: 14 (2)
- WIS: 15 (2)
- CHA: 16 (2)
HP is 120
FP is 196
DEF is 33
I am max level.
My class is Scoundrel Conselor, The primary feats that I unlocked were Master Dueling, Master Defense, but no mastery of flurry OR critical hit, I was just using the regular versions the whole playthrough. My main force powers are Maxed Stasis, Maxed Lightning, Max Valor, and Max Sword Throw, as well as Heal.
For the majority of my playthrough I had Jolee and HK-47 in my party, with HK focusing on ranged and Jolee being my main buffer while I stasised, electrocuted, and flurried enemies.
I have read up on a lot of people's methods, most don't work for various reasons.
- I don't have speed, so I can't really get far without spamming stims
- I only have 3 or so mines so I can't burst him down with explosions.
- My playthrough was as more of a gray jedi, so I can't equip any DS or LS specific gear.
- I own no force immunity gear, so he can stasis / electrocute me very easily.
- No force throw to push him back.
- No drain life to heal myself.
I genuinely am at a loss on how to get through this, I've been trying for hours and I can barely make any progress without getting destroyed.

2023.06.06 05:28 Rofflesaur 2008 GM 5.3L Vortec - Mysterious Coolant Disappearance
I have a customer with a 2008 Chevy Suburban 1500 5.3L. The truck has almost 400K miles (he'd like to see half a million). It's mainly used for long distance travel. I've had the truck in the shop 3 times for this issue already, and I'm out of ideas. Symptoms:
- Vehicle is losing approximately a gallon of coolant before the engine starts to run hot, at which point the customer notices and refills (maybe over 1000 miles?)
- The cooling system builds no pressure on it's own. I can let it run for a half hour or more and the pressure tester gauge sits at 0. If I manually pump it up to 13-15psi while running, it will hold it.
Before anyone immediately yells out "cracked head," this truck has the 799 casting heads. The head cracking issue was a problem with the older 706. That doesn't mean 799s can't crack too, it's just less likely as they didn't have a factory flaw.
- Coolant dye test: No external leaks found. Not even the rear heater core or common areas such as the water pump gaskets. I allowed the vehicle to idle for over a half hour and not even a drop on the floor.
- Combustion leak test (twice): negative both times
- Cooling system pressure test (several times, both hot and cold): Holds pressure and slowly leaks 1-2 psi over a couple hours. I can't even count that as a leak because it's so slow that it could easily be from the tool or the reservoir seal.
- Compression test: All cylinders well within factory specifications.
- Cylinder visual inspection: Checked all cylinders with borescope cold as well as hot. Cylinders were dry and had no coolant present or evidence of coolant leakage. Cylinder wall condition was surprisingly good.
- Leakdown test: Changed the spark plugs because I removed them for borescope/compression test and they were due. Cylinder #6 had a sussy plug, so I leakdown tested that cylinder only and it was perfect. Didn't test others because of time and no evidence that they needed to be.
- Visual check of oil and transmission fluid: No evidence of cross contamination. No sludge on oil cap.
- Visual check of exhaust: not really an accurate test, but nothing other than normal amounts of water vapor were present at the tailpipe. No coolant smell.
I'm going to lose my sanity over this truck soon! Nothing makes sense anymore! If the coolant is not leaking externally, then it must be going SOMEWHERE. These things have dry intake manifolds too. Please help me! 😂

2023.06.06 05:28 potter875 Used Gen Fill today and saved a ton of time and frustration.
I had to creat a simple 11x17 photo collage today. The layout I came up with was cool but I was left with about 5 squares that wouldn’t hold a horizontal group pic and I had a few left to put in.
It was great. I cropped 1:1 and expanded the canvas as much as I needed, drew a selection around all four sides, and BAM! Done nearly perfectly. I did this for a bunch of images in a matter of minutes.
The amount of time and frustration I saved by not having to create a new layout or somehow convert the horizontal group photos to square was incredible.
The beta really does work well for this type of stuff. Don’t get me started on how much I love the remove tool!

2023.06.06 05:28 TraditionalAd4309 My long distance boyfriend said he wants to take a break, then he said he wants to break up and today he proposed the idea to only talk during at night, does this simply mean he has found someone else?
I’m not sure how to feel about this and his reasoning is that he is over stimulated when we talk during the day and is not productive. We don’t talk every minute of the day, we check in with each-other throughout the day and he said that’s too much for him. Has anyone been in this situation before and is this just an excuse so he can have a relationship with another girl?
I also want to add by saying, he went shopping 3 days ago and when I asked, “ why are you shopping a lot” his response was “ just catching up” and it was said in a tone that rubbed me the wrong way.

2023.06.06 05:27 blurryturtle 2023 Roland Garros Quarterfinals Day 1
It's getting to that round where it starts to be really difficult to see a difference between some of these players. In the late rounds, a lot of players are peaking and despite having previous matches, these player's form throughout different stages of the season and even throughout different seasons can vary widely so these are brand new contests. In any event, I'm ready to be wrong. Quick shoutout to the top 5 in each one of DC's contests : ATP Bracket Contest : blurryturtle, unpleasant, 5grand8to1, noomuam, Diego2305
WTA Bracket Contest : TehoInBug, noomuam (going for the double, nice!), Belle23, Dikkeduece, unpleasant (another double hopeful)
Odds Comp : blurryturtle, Goldenboy8401, thiago1314, oompa87, DC writer Gillioni
ATP Singles :
Muchova vs Pavlyuchenkova : Getting engaged at someone else’s wedding is poor form. Wearing the same shirt as your friend to a party is hilarious, but also considered a faux pas. Somewhere in between those two fouls is whatever is going on here. Just when Muchova has rediscovered her best form, Pavlyuchenkova has done the same. Both are playing tremendous, but the spotlight and the story is going to be pilfered by one of these two big hitters. The odds for Muchova here are -170 and I think that’s pretty accurate. Their previous meeting in 2021 was in Madrid and went to two tiebreakers. Pavlyuchenkova won those but I think she’s the underdog in this one. Both players are capable of hitting the ball huge, but Muchova’s straight set dismissal of Avanesyan was really impressive. Avanesyan is a wall but Muchova’s power off both wings really was effective. This is a day match so we can expect the ball to be moving fairly quickly; this take legs out of the equation a bit, but even so Muchova will be the fresher player.
There isn’t really a hole in Pavlyuchenkova’s game, and the same can be said for Karolina so there’s not a clear plan for either to really utilize. This is the first in a series of ridiculously good matches, because we’re at the stage of the tournament where everyone is playing at or near their peak. Expecting tiebreakers here and a very close match. Muchova in 3.
Svitolina vs Sabalenka : Sabalenka had things under control against Sloane Stephens, up 5-0 in the first set. Somehow, she found herself in a tiebreak. That’s the sort of variance that was a hallmark of Aryna’s game in the past, but recently she’s settled into a good focused patch so it’s interesting to see her struggling a bit. Stephens is tremendous with her movement and ballstriking, but that type of lapse with a lead is something you can’t afford against Sabalenka’s next opponent. Elina Svitolina has to feel great to be back in the quarterfinals of a major. It’s an incredible feat for any athlete to compete at the professional level after having a baby, and she’s looking like a contender for her second title in only her second match back. Kasatkina and Svitolina played a ton of good quality rallies, and in the end it was Svitolina’s ability to hit through the court that gave her an edge. Kasatkina had to look to outlast her and it took many more shots for her each rally to finally score a winner. When Svitolina was able to reset to neutral with a big swing or a deep lob, it really felt like a heavy change in momentum. I’d have Sabalenka -300 against Kasatkina, but Svitolina’s power makes her a different challenge.
Sabalenka opened around -428 against Svitolina, which feels a bit inflated to me. Svitolina has a pretty decent serve, and a ton of experience. Their previous meeting went to three sets (2020 in Strasbourg), and though Sabalenka is a much better player now, she has had some difficult sets in this tournament against much weaker players. Stephens isn’t going to counter-punch as aggressively as Svitolina, and the marathon rallies against Kasatkina have her in solid form. Sabalenka is the frontrunner, but given her first set against Shymanovich and Stephens there is a decent chance this could wind up in a third. It’s funny how things change from round to round. After Rakhimova/Sabalenka I thought Aryna was basically going to reach the finals, but after the Stephens match I’m not sure she will keep the ball between the lines long enough to beat Svitolina. Svitolina is really adept at putting the extra ball into play and she’s on a 9 match win streak, including the Strasbourg title. Sabalenka is fresh off her first major title and she won the title in Madrid. Probably going to get some pushback on this but I think Svitolina pushes this into a third and I think she’ll be the more focused player if it gets there. Svitolina in 3.
ATP Singles :
Djokovic vs Khachanov : Like the cartoons that play before a movie, Djokovic Alcaraz is about to begin. Karen Khachanov is quietly cruising through this draw, including a fourth round win against Lorenzo Sonego where Khachanov just met every single defensive challenge presented. Similar to Ruud, Khachanov just doesn’t miss the court very much, and his physical strength is off the charts. He has a huge serve, and his match on clay last year with Djokovic went to a third set. Yet the odds for this match have been set at -2500. That price is basically saying “pls do not bet”, and it’s good advice. Djokovic’s record this year is 24-4, so the random losses are prevalent enough to make his astronomical prices a less than profitable endeavor anyway. Still, Khachanov being considered an afterthought is both absurd, and accurate.
Djokovic had a safe fourth round against Juan Pablo Varillas, who is incredibly steady but not particularly dangerous to Djokovic. He doesn’t serve big enough to pressure Novak into errors, and playing Djokovic for the first time is difficult since the workload out on the court is something you have to experience to be prepared for. The greats look playable on tv, but when you’re out there and they’re just not missing it can get frustrating very quickly. Credit to Varillas, he gave the crowd a good show, but he just couldn’t hurt Djokovic. Khachanov can, and can’t. Karen’s serve is almost big enough for him to hold serve. They’re playing a day match, so the ball will at least be moving at a normal pace even in the slow conditions. Khachanov’s backhand is really consistent and he can take the ball down the line with pace, but he telegraphs his forehand a bit so Djokovic should be okay defensively. I don’t think this will be as one-sided as the odds suggest, because Khachanov can hang in long rallies and doesn’t make a ton of unforced errors. He has a poor record against Djokovic (who doesn’t), but familiarity with an opponent does let you compete at your best in a big-time situation. Khachanov is becoming a gatekeeper for the semis and finals of majors, but unfortunately Novak is a resident. Should be the closest match Djokovic has had yet, but with his elbow issue seemingly gone, there’s not a clear path to beat him. I expect Khachanov’s solid play will net him one set if Djokovic’s level lapses or errors abound, but that’s probably as good as it gets. Djokovic in 4.
Alcaraz vs Tsitsipas : These are the only two players whose games are not affected by the night-time conditions, so it’s fitting that they’ll be playing the last match of the day. Carlos Alcaraz is scary good. Musetti came into their match playing lights-out tennis and had just straight setted Cam Norrie, genuinely making him look like a lower tier player. Halfway through the first set, it was clear that he could barely win a game against Alcaraz. Carlos’s defense and consistency are just off the charts. When his opponent leaves the ball short or doesn’t hit with pace himself, Alcaraz is hitting the ball right past them. His inside-out forehand in the fourth round was frighteningly quick, leaving Musetti standing still on numerous occasions. If you’re even competing even from the baseline, you then have to deal with his dropshots, which are varied and accurate. Every single point you win against him requires effort and accuracy, and there are only 3 matches between him and his first Roland Garros title so he doesn’t have to conserve or budget his energy output at this point.
Before their match in Barcelona, Tsitsipas represented an intriguing challenge for Alcaraz. He has a great serve and a huge forehand, so Alcaraz’s defenses were set to be test. He proved very capable though, and coming into this match it’s unclear where Tsitsipas can hurt Alcaraz. In the slightly colder night conditions Alcaraz will have more time defend, and Tsitsipas’ backhand is still a liability. With Carlos’ backhand improving almost constantly this season, the cross-court exchanges are likely to favor Alcaraz. Since Tsitsipas’s main issue on his backhand is lack of depth, it’s likely that he’ll see a healthy dose of dropshots. Stefanos is fast enough to run these down, but over the course of the match I think Alcaraz’s power and variety will make a big difference. It’s hard to just completely write someone as good as Tsitsipas off, but he has holes in his game that he needs to fix before he wins a major title, and Alcaraz is currently the level necessary to win one. One thing I do expect from this match is that Tsitsipas will play regardless of the scoreline. Should be a close but somewhat one-sided affair. Alcaraz in 3.

2023.06.06 05:27 HappyFamily0131 AITA for wanting to get my hair cut more frequently?
It's been 11 weeks since my last haircut, and my style is fairly short and neat when freshly cut, so right now it feels to me like my head is a mop. I mentioned to my wife that I was going to make an appointment to get it cut and she gave me an annoyed sigh, because the frequency with which I get haircuts is a recurring point of friction between us.
She and I go to the same same salon and have the same stylist. It's an expensive city, a very good salon, and a great stylist. When my wife gets her hair cut it costs $100. Men's cuts are cheaper, but still pricey at $60. My wife and I are at a place in our lives and careers where we can afford to pay these rates without issue (dual income, no kids; we're dinks). By admitting to this, my entire post might just boil down to a privileged person whining. If that's the case, don't hesitate to say so.
I feel like it's not unreasonable for a guy with a short hair style to expect to get a haircut every two months at the latest.
She objects to this and says it's too expensive. She gets her hair cut roughly every three months. Purely on the math of it, she is spending more dollars per year on haircuts, so that's certainly not trivial, but I don't think it's enough for me to declare myself right on that alone, as nearly everything related to fashion is more expensive for women in a way that is not escapable. I wouldn't expect her to keep to the same clothing budget as me, for the same reason. Clothes for guys are just way cheaper. Same goes for haircuts.
Ultimately, it's hard to find a clear metric to measure how often is too often. My impulse defense is to point out that we can afford it, and that I want to like the way I look. I currently don't. My hair looks messy and unprofessional and I feel unattractive. I spend less per haircut than she does, and while I want to get them more often, it still wouldn't be frequent enough to have me paying more total on haircuts per year.
While I care about how your votes shake out, I think what I'm also looking for are ways to resolve conflicts where it's hard to say in any objective way whether something is too expensive.

2023.06.06 05:26 AngelinoNomad Send help; I can’t choose.
As the title states, I am stuck between three bags. The first one is the Bellroy transit backpack 20 L, second is the Bellroy classic plus 24 L, and the peak design everyday backpack v2 30 L.
A little about me is that a commute via public transportation, my edc varies depending on the situation.
I carry the following: •iPad pro 12.9 or a 13 inch MacBook •kindle paper white and or a physical book •a fivestar flex notebook •either a 20-32 ounce water bottle. Depends. •chargers, battery pack etc.
This bag will be used for 1. EDC - coffee shops, weworks, etc. 2. When I need to go to the grocery store able to pick things up to incorporate into food not grocery hauls 3. Traveling around town or overnight stays 4. Sometimes I ride a bike and would want it to be comfortable.
Ideally I would want a minimalistic bag. Any recommendations are welcomed. Thank you in advanced
