2023.06.02 00:44 autotldr Russia's Wagner Group chief threatens to pull his mercenary army from fighting in Ukraine if war efforts continue to be 'led by clowns who turn people into meat'

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 63%. (I'm a bot)
Yevgeny Prigozhin, the founder of the Wagner Group, continues to criticize the Kremlin.
The leader of the Russian Wagner Group said his mercenary army will not continue fighting in Ukraine if the war effort continues to be "Led by clowns who turn people into meat."
Yevgeny Prigozhin, who was previously a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, has become increasingly critical of the Kremlin's war efforts.
"If the whole chain is 100% failed and will only be led by clowns who turn people into meat, then we will not participate in it," Prigozhin at a training camp on Thursday, Reuters reported.
Prigozhin also said it had been "a tough year" and that confirmed the Wagner Army would be leaving Bakhmut on June 5 and replaced by Russian troops.
An analysis by The Institute for the Study of War said that the Wagner Group pulling out of Bakhmut and the Russian army moving in could leave an opening for Ukraine to retake the city.

2023.06.02 00:41 CivetKitty Elite levels and card evolutions: are they enough to save the game?

Before I start this long post, I want to thank everyone who flock to posts like this just to say "geT gUd BrUh," because these people are very helpful on proving my point. I also like the changes the devs mentioned recently, especially the upgrade cost reduction and the 2nd Slash Royale. But I think it is still not enough to solve the underlying issue that is plagueing the game.

1. The Disconnect from YouTube

These days, a great majority of a game's publicity comes from ads and content creation. Even ads are being less trustworthy because of low quality ripoffs of ripoffs of ripoffs of ripoffs of ripoffs of ripoffs of... You get the point. Many ads are straight up lying about the game they are actually promoting, which Clash Royale also does by the way. When I saw a CR ad that literally portrays 2 giants walking to opposite towers as kissing, I was utterly disgusted.
That leaves content creation to be the most positive way for promoting a game, and the best way of gaming content creation is to create a symbiotic relationship between the creator and the audiance. In the past, this relationship was achieved via deck showcases and tutorials, but these things aren't that useful anymore, which the reasons I'll explain on a later part of this post. The more card showcase and creator to audiance interaction, the more traction it will bring to these videos, making creators grow, encouraging the algorythm to show more CR content, and therefore, pulling more people into the game and videos about it.
However, for the last few months, videos milking on the "Update for Losers" and the state of the game has been doing better than simple deck showcases since the UfL was gaining a lot of searches. Maybe I should take back my previous statement as bragging about your house burning down is truely the most effective way of promotion. When u/Clash_with_Ash showed the Google Trends data of the UfL, I immediately reminded myself that raw search count data cannot display bias. The UfL made a bump on the graph, and so did the war in Sudaan.

2. The Rising Wall

Thie reason why deck showcases aren't that popular anymore is the rising barrier to entry. It's getting harder and harder for newer players to enter late game, while experienced players are deminishing and slowly losing the need to search for new decks because of their increased skill. Gradually, the number of deck showcases deminished, making new players unable to find up to date tutorials. As a result, the symbiotic relationship between the content creators and the influx of new players is broken while the barrier to entry into the "Kool Kids' Klub" is increasing.
Even worse, the "Kool Kids' Klub" constantly bashing on new players are discouraging community interactions. This is why I thanked these people at the beginning of the post by the way. The more you hate on noob strats, the more you turn them away from the game. The more the quitters, the faster the game will reach its demise. I kind of understand why you are being so toxic though. he reason is the midladder meta, something that should not have existed in the first place.

3. The midladder meta

The midladder meta (midladder in short) is a beginner strategy that was prevented evolution and became manifested into a meta. This meta, defined mainly by splash and swarm, is a natural way of learning the game since it is easy for beginners to pick up and get used to the game's system.
However, the absurdly high card level costs and the fact that the game requires synergies between these cards discourages a lot of people to explore new decks and branch off into different archetypes. Even worse, the fact that trophies were used in both the sweaty ranked mode and progression made players more unwilling to explore new decks, extending this tendancy to a full blown meta. Now, all that new players know of this godforesaken meta and tutorials that look like they are talking about an alternate universe.
Midladder, despite being the same for years, is an uncharted jungle where the only guidance is yourself. It should not be mocked to death, but rather, be thuroughly looked into and broken down bit by bit until it is completely removed in the future. For example, when you look at the deckshop.pro page for the Wizard and look at the section for counters for defending wizard, we can see 4 hard counters, Tornado from Arena 15, Poison from Arena 9, Lightning from Arena 8, and Miner from Arena 11. Which arena does Wizard come from? 4! This makes the perfect breeding ground for overleveled Wizard with weak counters. Also. I only looked at the defensive side since Wizard is a defensive card, and this stat also applies to this card being a support card for beatdown. Anyways, counters for defending Witch are even worse, with only lightning and Rocket showing up as hard counters. 1 redeeming factor of Rocket is that it comes from 1 arena lower(6 vs 5), but the long delay and the small AoE makes it a low priority lfor new players to upgrade. Pekka is shown as a counter to a defending Mega Knight, but the high cost is risky for a swarm oriented meta.

4. A Glimpse of Hope

I think the Update for Losers is an attempt for the devs to acknowledge this issue and try out conservative changes. Path of Legends aimed to split the competative rank system from the progression based trophy system. Not only that, The trophy system was tweaked to prevent a full tilt from becoming a bottomless pit, minimizing huge losses in progression. Although they messed up on level capping the trophy system and nerfing the free pass, I think they were on to something with the paid pass as well. I think the Book of Books was a bad design, especially when it comes to champions. Maxing out a champion without this item will take years, and even more if wild cards are not used as well. Nerfing the paid pass tried to lessen the gap between the spenders and F2P players, but the devs clearly didn't think of existing players and their overleveled cards.
Slash Royale 2.0 and the gold cost discounts is another baby step towards solving midladder, but I think this is still not enough. The game needs a more radical shift in order to save itself from burning down, and my pick is to just remove card levels entirely and tie it to the king level. Or at least completely copy over the leveling System from Brawl Stars. Brawler levels are much more tolerable since 1 brawler equals 1 deck. It makes fair match making a lot easier. However, CR has 8 cards to consider in 1 deck, so I don't think card levels really fit the game. Card levels should be transfered into king levels and make it 150 levels max instead of 15. To prevent power creep, each level should increase the stats by 1% instead of 10. Although this change needs careful consideration for compensating, it is way better to make midladder disappear and make deck diversity a universal trait.

Guys I need help, iam confused
Male 22 years old Hello guys first I want to apologize for this long text, also English is not my native language but I have something on my heart that bothers me a lot and I need answers...
I started texting occasionally (for 1 month) with this girl who I met on a dating app, first none of us took it seriously we sometimes answered to texts a few days later.... After a while we started texting more frequently and I asked her if she wanted to meet on the weekend, she told me she had already something planned (which was not sure) and that she will text me in the following days to tell me if she had time. A few days later she told me that she had time on afternoon, so we made plans and she told me if it started raining we could go to her flat (she lives alone) She said that she had no bad intentions she just did not want Rain to ruin our first date because I have an hour to drive there.
So I drove there on Saturday(without any expectations), I came 15 minutes late because of traffic, she was already in front of the door waiting for me. My heart immediately skipped a beat because she was very beautiful and I never had somebody keep so much eye contact (usually iam the one with very long eye contact) so we started walking had a very good chat and after one or two hours it started raining lightly so we got back to her flat, where we had very very deep talk, later we played some Mario kart on her bed. At this point I was very nervous because we were laying next to each other and having a lot of eye contact. After a while we stopped playing and she showed me her books at this point I have had build up the courage to finally kiss her. As already said I was extremely nervous because she was very attractive and I had never kissed a girl on the first date. So we made out for a while but I was actually way to nervous to bring a satisfying perfomance:)
But nonetheless we still cudled, during the cudling we also had a very good conversation before her girlfriend came to pick her up. She came a bit early which surprised us both why I had to leave earlier. While driving back i had extremely mixed feelings, she absolutely took away my breath but at the same time I felt very very uneasy about her (a bad stomach feeling) While I was driving home she apologized to me per whatsapp for the abrupt ending etc. She wanted to meet again the next day which kinda surprised me, during our date we alked about a big amusement in the region where we live. I had never gone there because I have a fear of heights but she was absolutely obsessed with it and she suggested we go there so we made plans. To cut it short I got sick in the evening and we couldn't go. On Sunday evening she texted me that she really enjoyed the time with me and that I was very cute but my shy and insecure type is something she is not into,which I understand so I explained her that iam not like that usually so she agreed to meet again
The weeknd was over and she asked on which weekdays I had time to meet? I told her I get off work earlier on Monday, she suggested we met at her flat and that she cooks for us both. She told me beforehand that she did not want to get intimate yet which was okey for me because I need time for that as well. So we met on Monday and drank a bit of wine and had very good deep talk again, she told me that she lost her virginity at 16 to her boyfriend who raped her and that she also got into therapy because of that. She also told me that she left her boyfriend 6 months ago because he was toxic and she was also very depressed afterwards. She asked me if I wanted to cuddle a bit, so we cudled and made out again, this time I was very sure of myself and she really enjoyed is as well, she gave compliments to my smell and my looks. She also got a bit touchy even tho she did not want to get intimate.
We ate something during which she asked me about my bad character traits and if i have ever got loud towards my mother, I answered (very honestly) that iam jealous and don't forgive easily and that I have also gotten loud with my mother. Afterwards we lay into bed again, she brought up the topic of what's gonna become of us? I answered her that I could imagine a serious relationship and that my main goal is always marriage (I knew she was very into career which is why I said it) she told me that she also could imagine a relationship with me as well, so we talked about marriage and family plans for a very long time, she asked me if I wanted to spend the night at her place what I rejected because I had work next morning and I did not want to drive for an hour in the morning.
I have to mention that she was always extremely kind and gave extreme amount of compliments which was very unusual for me
The next days we only texted and we also had no plans for meeting because she would spend the weekend at her parents place and would go to a party there. On Tuesday evening she texted me that she was unsure about a relationship because I had the same traits why she left her ex. I immediately answered and asked her which traits she meant and if she wanted to talk on the telephone about it, which she didn't answer that night. That was an common theme with her, she always answered late, even if I answered directly to her texts. She sometimes answered hours later without any excuse which I always found weird.
During this time I had trouble eating and sleeping because I was very obviously falling in love (my first time) she was always on my mind and also I had an very uneasy stomach.
We texted the next day and agreed to talk on the telephone but somehow she only found time around midnight even tho that topic bothered me a lot. I answered all her questions and assured her I would never get violent with her etc. But i was also very unsure about a relationship already, on Monday evening while we were cudling and having the conversation about a potential relationship I asked her if she talked with other people on the dating app, which she answered with yes, I asked her If one of the dudes on the app asked her for a date if she would meet with them and she also answered yes to that and reasoned that she is still single, which I found very weird and upsetting because we were just talking about a serious relationship? So I asked her about that on the telephone call and she told me that she likes having a backup in case things don't work out because that makes her feel better or something?
She actually deleted her dating app a few days later and told me that, that also made me very happy. The next days we texted normally and also made plans to meet on the next Monday which she claimed she was looking forward to. She canceled this meeting because she stayed with her parents a day longer to meet her grandmother. She already told me that her family has a lot of drama.... and apparently the meeting with her grandmother was extremely bad She wanted to meet and asked me on which days I had time, I told her that I could spend the night on Wednesday at her place or we could meet at Saturday. She told me that it would be better if I don't spend the night at her place yet because she doesn't know if she can control herself because she feels that secure and well next to me, even to she offered it the week before? On the same day she also texted me that she can't imagine herself in a relationship currently.
We agreed meeting on Saturday but the next day out of the blue she asked if I could spend the night at her place on Wednesday which made me jump out of bed in joy. So i agreed but the next day she sent me an voice message on what's app where she sounded like she was crying, she explained me that she felt very uneasy because of what happened with her grandmother (some drama she didn't want elobarte further on) and that she just want to stay in bed and stuff and that I couldn't spend the night at her place and apologized, I offered her to talk on the telephone to help her but she did not wanna bother me with her family drama?
The same night I get a call from her and we talked a bit, it was an extremely good conversation she was very sweet and we got along very well, also we made plans week for the weekend. She told me that she couldn't wait to see me...
On Thursday I was on a business trip where we also texted and we got well along very well, but since meeting her the first time I had this uneasy feeling that destroyed me from inside and especially on this day I kinda knew that things were coming towards an end. At 8 p.m I got a 2 minute long voice message and I already knew what was about to come. In the message she talked about what a good guy iam and how much she enjoyed the time with me but that she can't meet somebody which could lead to an relationship because she has commitment issues? She also apologized for breaking contact on whatsapp because apparently I don't deserve it I sent her an answer in which I explained that I also wanted to finish this the next time we met but I wanted to do it personally etc.
We talked it out and finished it like two grownups, the last thing she said that the world is small and maybe well meet again one day. We broke up in good terms.
The next days were weird for me, I thought about her all day and was empty inside. We had no contact at all expect that she liked my instagram story.
5 days later before going to sleep i saw that she followed new guys on Instagram(she only followed like 4 guys one of which was me before) which made me extremely jealous and i blocked her everywhere. The next day I got curious and decided to confront her(In a very humane way) if our relation meant her something which she answered with: yes otherwise I wouldnt treat you like that So I asked her why she already started following other guys on Instagram. She replied that these are only friends of her girlfriend and she already deleted them, and when I checked she really had deleted them, I apologized and she said that there is nothing to apologize. We talked about the last few days and she told me that she thought about me a lot...
Next Day she texted that it's not a good idea that I follow her on Instagram, I told her that I did not want to remove her from my life completely. She answered that she understands but doesn't want any contact at this moment I replied that I will respect that, she replied with a heart and blocked me everywhere When I checked with an fake acc her insta was deactivated. It has been deactivated for almost 3 weeks after last conversation
Guys sry for this long ass text and thank you for your patience. Writing this down helped me a lot, what is your opinion on what happened? I think she is not over her Ex-bf yet and just used me to waste her time and when it got serious she got cold feet...

Julien's Auction Book - part 2
Here are pictures from the second auction book... I noticed most GND pictures are of Kendra, interesting but not surprised. There aren't as many so I added some people might like. This includes pictures of the bedroom, which is probably the cleanest it's been in decades, the typewriter which was the highest auction item at $162,500 and I thought the acrylic baby oil was cringe.
I really enjoyed the mansion pictures, I wish there was some of the vanity as I'm still trying to picture the layout etc in my head.
Of other note they were auctioning off everything, which included: the black satin sheets (eww), Hef's credit cards, and passports.
See ya'll tonight! ❤️

2023.06.02 00:32 Forward_Awareness203 I[27m] got the girl[29f] pregnant who I barely know & she's keeping me in dark. Help!

I[27m] got a hookup[29f] pregnant. We were not even dating, we were just meeting for the 2nd time and had sex. She told she had IUD, but upon finding out she got pregnant, she said it was fallen off and was not there when we had sex. Also, plan B failed. Also, she told me she had just gotten off her period but later on she denies it. Ofc, I regret now not wearing a condom, I thought I had 3 layers of protection. She went for doctor's appointment 2 weeks after, all the pregnancy tests before that were negative (she sent me 1 positive pregnancy test pic after appointment, other than that 1 in front of me and 1 she took a day before appointment were both negative), I'm yet to see a positive pregnancy test in front of my eyes. She told me doctor said they can see sac forming and so yeah you're pregnant.
After intial shock, we both communicated over 2-3 weeks and then she finally decided to get an abortion at 6-7weeks. She said she can't do this alone and so she would want to move in with me. I was very clear with her that I'm doing this because of the situation and not out of romantic feelings. She moved in even before the date and I've been taking care of her ever since. Post abortion appointment, she had been a wreck emotionally and being the support system I was trying to do everything I can from consoling her, listening to her, driving her, staying home more, cancelling my own plans etc.
As time passed, I found her to be emotionally manipulative but ignored and thought it is because of hormone fluctuation. She would call her mom when I'm about to step out for few hrs and intimidate me that she might tell her if I'm not giving her enough attention/support, we haven't told parents and she knows very well I don't want to involve parents at any cost. She told if her parents find out they'll find out ur parents at any cost(even if I don't cooperate) and involve everyone, also they're pro-life. I've no idea how my parents would react but I'm trying to deal with it myself as much as possible. I encouraged her to widen her support group but she refused. She said she's talking to her (ongoing) therapist, grief counselor and a friend. She started getting attached to me & whenever I try to remind her that this is purely out of situation she would get upset at me and say I'm not being supportive. As we were reaching 1 month post abortion appointment date(last week), she told me she was about to have period. There were some false alarms but one day last week she told me she finally got her period and I was happy knowing hormones will balance out soon.
In this whole situation, there's this story abt her ex whom she met in a different country and were doing long distance before she found out he was cheating on him(2 weeks before we met for the first time). They were even planning to get married and start a family. Before around 4 weeks, he reached back out and justified that he was only talking to other girl because of her mother and he loves her only. Tldr she started talking back to him. She made the plans for visiting him next month, booked tickets and were talking to him about getting married and getting pregnant with him. This week she found out he's still cheating on him and so she cancelled the plan and is hurt.
Idk if that contributed to it but this week she also told me that she lied about something around abortion. The day she had the appointment, she freaked out and didn't go through it. And all the stuff that's been going on for last 6 weeks was lies. She said I started it and it snow balled into very big pile of lies. She had no courage to come clean to me about it and wanted to deal with her own. I asked her what's the situation right now then? Are you pregnant(it would be 13 weeks now)? What's ur intention going forward? And she's telling me nothing. She's just keeping me in the dark. She tells as far as you're concerned I'm not pregnant, I'll deal with it. At the same time, she deliberately brings up things around what ifs of keeping it. She has been spotting(which she was referring as period before) and when I ask if you're pregnant this could be something serious, she says it's normal to have spotting. She told me she has a ultrasound to show(dated 4 weeks before) if you don't believe, but she hasn't showed me yet. I ask her to do a pregnancy test in front of me, she denies it.
I'm a kind and nice person, she ack that as well, but I'm done with the games she's playing with me. I just don't know what she wants to do. I understand this is a hard decision on her but it feels like she's just playing games with me. Please tell me if I'm doing something wrong here, or how should I deal with this situation?
Tldr: got a hookup pregnant, she lied about getting abortion and now keeping me in the dark. What should I do?

2023.06.02 00:27 Adventurous_Goose852 The Bible does not have to be infallible. Fundamentalism isn’t a core Christian doctrine. Stop it!

This post is mainly directed towards Christians.
Fundamentalism is not a core belief of Christianity. An infallible Bible is not a core belief of Christianity. Stop treating it like it is!!!
A man went through years of education. YEARS. Wrote a WHOLE book. 27 BOOKS ACTUALLY!!! And guess what he said about the idea of the earth being 4 billion years old.
“they started trusting in the latest secular findings based on fallible dating methods, instead of the only absolutely reliable method—consulting the history book provided by the Eyewitness account (the infallible Word of God).”
PEOPLE!!! We don’t have to reject things with concrete scientific evidence just because your fundamentalist view of Genesis says something different!!! The Bible isn’t a science book! Stop embarrassing us!
I know someone’s gonna say we shouldn’t care about what skeptics and non-Christians think about us. But it’s HARD to spread the gospel when people keep saying “sorry I believe in evolution and the Big Bang, not God’s mysterious ways.”
Problem of Evil? FINE! Any other popular skeptic debate is okay with me! But the assumption that Christianity is all about rejecting science is ANNOYING.
Y’all have made creationism look like it’s synonymous to young-earth creationism and it’s ANNOYING. I’ve seen some people deconstruct, and I always assume it’s because of a valid reason. Most of the time it is. But i have a friend that actually deconstructed because he saw evidence of evolution. I managed to win them back, but WHAT?
Apparently, the general Christian doctrine is:
  1. Jesus died and rose from the dead our sins.
  2. Trinity.
  3. Evolution and the Big Bang are false.
  4. The earth was created in 7 days and the universe is 6000 years old.
  5. The Bible is infallible and a fundamentalist view is the only way.
  6. The end is near.
Y’all have created this stereotype that’s so annoying. I don’t care what you think about science. Stop acting like it’s part of the doctrine!! Paul didn’t care about Charles Darwin. Paul didn’t care about Lemaître. No apostle did. No early church fathers cared about what those people thought. Because they didn’t exist back then!!!

2023.06.02 00:17 welp007 Desperate times are calling for desperate measures at the Treasury Department. For the first time since 2007, the department is set to auction $15 billion worth of one-day cash management bills on Friday that will be issued on June 5.

Desperate times are calling for desperate measures at the Treasury Department. For the first time since 2007, the department is set to auction $15 billion worth of one-day cash management bills on Friday that will be issued on June 5.
Desperate times are calling for desperate measures at the Treasury Department. For the first time since 2007, the department is set to auction $15 billion worth of one-day cash management bills on Friday that will be issued on June 5.
This comes as the Treasury’s cash balances hover around $37 billion, the lowest level since 2017. Since the debt ceiling was initially breached in January, the Treasury hasn’t been able to borrow more money to pay its bills. If lawmakers don’t raise the debt ceiling by June 5, the Treasury is poised to run out of funds entirely, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen warned.
Congress appears to be on track to avoid that scenario. The House of Representatives passed the debt deal House Speaker Kevin McCarthy cut with President Joe on Wednesday. Now its fate rests in the hands of the Senate and Joe, who vowed to quickly sign it into law.
Cash management bills mature in a relatively short time frame, ranging from a few days to a year, according to the Treasury. They’re used to help manage the Treasury’s short-term financing needs.
Unlike Treasury bill auctions that occur on a weekly and monthly basis, cash management bill auctions are irregular, though not uncommon. For instance, last year the Treasury held more than 30 cash management bill auctions.
It is, however, quite unusual for the department to auction debt that matures in just one day. Over the past 25 years, the Treasury held six one-day cash management bill auctions.
Yields on cash management bills, which are determined by the auction process, tend to be higher than regular fixed maturity bills. Thursday’s $25 billion auction of three-day cash management bills carries a 6.15% yield. That exceeds the yields almost all other Treasury bills are trading at.
Friday’s auction is open to the public with a minimum $100 bid and can only be purchased in $100 increments.
“There likely won’t be an issue for the Treasury to find bidders on the paper as maturities this short can fit well in money-market funds or other institutional buyers’ books that are looking to invest cash over the weekend,” said Charlie Ripley, senior investment strategist at Allianz Investment Management.
It’s likely that yields on the one-day bills will end up mirroring yields of other bills that mature on June 6, he added, “but any negative headlines overnight indicating bottlenecks with the legislature getting through the Senate will impact the auction price.”
Underscoring the uncertainty around the debt ceiling bill, the Treasury said plans to issue $65 billion of 13-week bills and $58 billion of 26-week bills on June 8 were “tentative.”
The announcements “are conditional on enactment of the debt limit suspension because Treasury forecasts insufficient headroom under the current debt limit to issue securities in these amounts on June 8,” the Treasury said in a statement on Thursday.

2023.06.02 00:16 DevineHope_14 The Mark Of Cain

Book Of Genesis:
Chapter 4 [4:1] Now the man knew his wife Eve, and she conceived and bore Cain, saying, "I have produced a man with the help of the LORD."
[4:2] Next she bore his brother Abel. Now Abel was a keeper of sheep, and Cain a tiller of the ground.
[4:3] In the course of time Cain brought to the LORD an offering of the fruit of the ground,
[4:4] and Abel for his part brought of the firstlings of his flock, their fat portions. And the LORD had regard for Abel and his offering,
[4:5] but for Cain and his offering he had no regard. So Cain was very angry, and his countenance fell.
[4:6] The LORD said to Cain, "Why are you angry, and why has your countenance fallen?
[4:7] If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin is lurking at the door; its desire is for you, but you must master it."
[4:8] Cain said to his brother Abel, "Let us go out to the field." And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his brother Abel, and killed him.
[4:9] Then the LORD said to Cain, "Where is your brother Abel?" He said, "I do not know; am I my brother's keeper?"
[4:10] And the LORD said, "What have you done? Listen; your brother's blood is crying out to me from the ground!
[4:11] And now you are cursed from the ground, which has opened its mouth to receive your brother's blood from your hand.
[4:12] When you till the ground, it will no longer yield to you its strength; you will be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth."
[4:13] Cain said to the LORD, "My punishment is greater than I can bear!
[4:14] Today you have driven me away from the soil, and I shall be hidden from your face; I shall be a fugitive and a wanderer on the earth, and anyone who meets me may kill me."
[4:15] Then the LORD said to him, "Not so! Whoever kills Cain will suffer a sevenfold vengeance." And the LORD put a mark on Cain, so that no one who came upon him would kill him.
My question is. Does anyone know what the "mark is"? What made Cain stand out from the rest of the humankind, regarding this "mark"? at which He could not be killed.

2023.06.02 00:14 dianarchy DIYer trying not to fuck up your day

I called for a plumber and they're booking 6-8 weeks out. I wanted them to come drain and disconnect this unit so I could trust that it went back together right. Now I've got a case of The Audacity and I think I'm capable of draining and disconnecting these pipes, and I can keep my appointment for the reconnection instead.
I know next to nothing about soldering. I think I want to cut the pipes in the closet because I don't want to cut the collars (?) that are close to where it go through the wall in the room I'm actually working on. The closet isn't deep (16"?), but is there a drawback to pulling the pipes through the wall that I'm not thinking of? I would assume also that it'll be easieless flame risk for you if I cut closer to the middle of that span.

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

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

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

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

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

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