2023.03.29 03:09 SpudWithaDream Drake the type of potty mouth to watch South Park late at night
Drake isn’t allowed to watch South Park, because he has a bad habit of acting like the characters he sees on TV, regardless if they’re the hero or the villain. Drake is upset by this because all of his friends watch it. “If you’re friends jumped off a bridge, would you?!” “No sir” “Of course you wouldn’t. As long as you’re under 13, South Park is off limits! Do you understand me, young man?!” “Yes sir” “That’s what I thought. Now brush your teeth and go to bed!” Drake snuggles up in his comically proportioned bed with a giant letter ‘D’ on the headboard and his stuffed elephant, then notices a glowing light from outside his window. Curious, he sneaks out to discover the source of this beckoning light and sees his neighbors watching South Park with the closed captioning on. “Neat-o!”
The next day, he repeats everything he saw in the episode he watched last night to his friends and they all share a good laugh. His teacher then yanks him by the ear and says “come with me to the principals office, young man!” “I-I’m sorry, Principal Buttmunch” Drake blubbers “It won’t ever happen again!” “Sorry doesn’t cut it, mister! I’m suspending you for the rest of the week!” “No, please, my daddy will tear me a new one when he finds out I got suspended!” “Well, if you can’t do the time don’t do the crime!”
“AUUBREYYYYYY! YOU GOT SUSPENDED FOR SWEARING?! WHERE DID YOU EVEN LEARN SUCH LANGUAGE?!” “I… I…” “ANSWER ME!!!” “I learned it from watching South Park.” “I told you that show isn’t allowed in this household! How did you even watch it?!” “I snuck out to watch it at the neighbors house.” “Watching South Park AND sneaking out?! I didn’t raise a delinquent! That’s it! You’ve left me no choice!”
Drake’s dad then donates the TV to charity, washes his mouth with a bar of soap, and grounds him for the rest of the school years. Drake frowns as he stares at a blank wall, where he learns swearing can get you into trouble.

2023.03.29 03:09 cryptkeeperx I feel disgusted with myself.
Cw: mentions of s/a and abuse.
A while back my ex(who's also cyberstalking me...) wrote these disgusting terrifying poems about me. I just came across another one. It was extremely degrading and objectifying. It mentioned my favorite musician and how he hopes i can't listen to him anymore. That my favorite songs make me feel like he's touching me. It was mostly about how upset he is at the thought that i could potentially have a sex life now, but it was worded as if I'm cheating on him/as if he owns me, and all of his writing is like that. We broke up literally a year ago. He still does it. I just saw that over sixty people liked this shit. I know most of them. I'm terrified. I feel disgusted. I feel fucking violated. The last time i felt this gross was genuinely after i was sexually assaulted the first time it happened. I've been feeling this way since the first one of these I've come across. They're genuinely so disgusting and they're all on Instagram. Some of them are literally text written on top of my old art or pictures of us together. You can't see my face in them but it's clearly our pictures. People i thought were my friends are calling me disgusting horrible things in the comments.
I just feel fucking disgusting. I don't know what else to say. I'm also staring to realise how many things he forced me to do. He used to threaten to hurt himself if i didn't have sex with him. Said i make him feel undesirable and gross if i refuse even though i only said no when we were in public. He was extremely manipulative and i knew that but i only realised how bad it was now. It's just all coming back to me.
Half of our relationship was a blur and now i just can't stop going through my old diary entries and our old texts and almost every conversation we had is him pressuring me into something sexual or demanding that I act more like his mother. He used to constantly compare us.
He would often also say that i remind him of her while trying to convince me to sleep with him. It always felt gross and uncomfortable and he wouldn't stop no matter how much i asked him to. I'm just slowly realising how much damage he did to me and it's so scary.
I just feel disgusting and violated and i don't know what to do.

2023.03.29 03:08 silverarrows24 Adopted 4-month old pup in early January (he’s now almost 7 months). My partner (who lives with us) has been traveling for entire month of March. Best way to “reintroduce” them? Am I overthinking this?
Hello! My partner and I adopted a 4-month old pup the first week of January. We all live together. My partner has been traveling since the beginning of March and will be coming home in a couple of days. Do we think my pup has forgotten him or will he be ok if my partner comes into the house as normal?
I’ve had a couple friends over throughout the month and found that my pup is much more relaxed when meeting new people outside first before we all come inside together after the initial introduction. We had one friend visit last month who we did not introduce outside first (the friend just came right into the house) and my pup was barking at him, running away & hiding, and even peed from nervousness. He warmed up to him eventually and even cuddled on the couch but the initial hour was stressful for my pup.
Of course this situation is different than introducing my pup to friends… this is his “dad” who he did live with for his first 2 months of being adopted. His dad has just been gone for this most recent month of my pup being in our family.
I’m thinking we should “reintroduce” outside and then come inside, but my partner says it would be better for him to just come inside as normal since “inside” is the context that my pup is most familiar with him in. I think he’s feeling some type of way about being treated as a “stranger” but I really am just trying to look out for my pup’s emotional state. Especially since I’m starting to think he may be reactive to strangers (not aggressive but just nervous) - that’s a whole other issue.
Am I overthinking this? Do we think my partner should just come inside our home as normal when he gets back this week? What should we do? TIA

2023.03.29 03:08 Fallen-Werecat 10 years...three years later
They saw you today, with her, the one that you left me for. My boyfriend who picked up the pieces and his best friend, saw you at the store. Apparently, you looked like crap, long hair unkept, bags of exhaustion running under your eyes, she with poorly box dyed hair and a “I cut it myself in a fit” style a-line. She gained weight, enough that she is not skinny, that’s what they said anyways. I wonder if she goes to bed at night wondering if she is next. If you will use her change in appearance to find her replacement. Will you wait the 9 years this time? Or are you already looking?
It was inevitable that one of us would see you, I mean it may be a big state but it is a small world. I knew where you moved, the little townhouse you bought and all that, people talk and seemed to think that knowing how far you were would make me feel better…safer. It didn’t, not after 3 years when I had to move, and the only place I could afford was practically next door. The knowledge made me sick, the wondering if I would run into you with every new store I went, as I created my new routine. Days, weeks, months…I almost made it a year with out a sighting. I wasn’t there, I can’t decide if that was a good thing or a bad.
I wrote you a letter once before and threw it to the tides of life, here I am again. This time though I want to say, I am glad that you looked like crap, that she looked like I used to when I was in “my prime” as you scornfully called it. To know what goes around really did come around. For nine years I put my all into that life and what I thought we were both building. Only to have you walk out for someone younger, prettier, and broken in a way that made you feel powerful. Even if that glimpse, they got was just a bad day I don’t care.
I am happy, loved, and free. If I am the next one to spot you say in another 11 months or so, just know I will be smirking as I walk away knowing I got the better deal. I am not pretty, skinny, or conventionally smart, but I am free not just of you, but of all you represented. I feel healed and that was in spite of you. I don’t forgive you, because you don’t deserve it, and I don’t need it either.
To her…Good luck, you’re gunna need it….

2023.03.29 03:08 brilliant0ne The terrible, no good, very bad (couple of) days
The past couple of days have been a shit show and this sub seems like the only one who understands.
I know my puppy is a baby, even if I did have to write myself a post-it note to remind myself of that. I know he is probably teething like a mf right now. I know that he is still learning to be on this planet, let alone anything else. But, geez, I wish I had a camera or some shit to see a snapshot of the future so I could know, for sure, everything will be okay. Because, right now, it really doesn’t feel like it will be. He gets enforced naps, two hours down (give or take 15 or so minutes), and an hour to 1.5 hours up. He does pretty well with this and will usually settle down relatively quickly for his nap. It’s the hour when he is up right now that gets so damn grrrrrr.
I feel like I live in a landmine zone of nothing but shit that will overstimulate him almost as soon as he is awake and goes outside for his walks. There are several stray cats in the area and the local animal control is constantly full and really doesn’t do anything to work on this issue since they apparently live in a cat colony somewhere in the area. So, at almost all hours of the day, there is a cat (or 2 or 3) in the immediate area that triggers him to the point it is so hard to work on keeping his attention to just get out the door without him going into crazy mode. But let’s say we get past the door without the cats, there’s the rocks on the path out of the driveway that I am constantly having to stop and pull out of his mouth which makes him mad and then he starts jumping around and biting and pulling on his leash. There are apparently no treats better than the taste and feel of a good rock in the jaw. But let’s say we can get past the driveway without crazy mode activating. There’s the neighbor in front of me with the kids who scream and run toward us while the neighbor beside them has three dogs who bark and bite and growl at the fence while another neighbor is constantly driving up and down the street with his backfiring motorbike while another neighbor revs his motorcycle almost all day and somewhere in the area is a shooting range I guess.
So as soon as we get out the door, it’s chaos. Unless it’s 3am. Then that’s pretty chill.
I would put him in the car and take him somewhere a little less stimulating for his potty breaks and walking time but that’s not really feasible since I WFH and I use his up times to also take my own potty breaks, get food, try and throw a load of laundry on, or something.
But even without the overstimulating walks, it seems like anything puts him in crazy mode. Toss the ball one too many times? Crazy mode. Too much time tearing up a cardboard box with treats in it? Crazy mode. Too many minutes working on training? Crazy mode. No, sir, you can’t eat the couch today? Crazy mode. It honestly feels like if he is not asleep then he’s overstimulated.
If I am not working or playing with / taking care of my puppy then I am trying to cram in looking at training videos or reading one of the books I have seen suggested on the sub before about enrichment, training, and such. Right now, finances are tough so I don’t have the money for a personal trainer or behaviorist atm. And, honestly, I feel like most of this is just him being a puppy. I just feel like everything feels so urgent to get trained or worked on that I flounder around.
Don’t get me wrong, he is a good puppy and so smart. I don’t have even half of the potty training issues I have seen others have and any accidents he’s had in the last couple of weeks have been my fault because I didn’t have my shit together and to the door fast enough. He sleeps through the night about 99% of the time and pretty much has since he was 8 weeks old. He knows several things like sit, down, and touch.
Just the last couple of days have been difficult and I don’t feel like a person anymore right now just a bot that works between wrangling a little four-legged psychopath and then sleeping to get up and do it all over again.
Sorry for the wall of text, I am just really having a hard time seeing through to the other side tonight and everything feels like a mistake. I just needed to get that out to others who may understand.

2023.03.29 03:07 westcoastthrowaway22 Married 18yrs, wife (39F) had a brief affair and I (42M) found out. Separated since January, living apart since February. Both "single" for the full experience of separation. I slept with someone and hated it, it convinced me she is the only one for me. Help!
Wife had an affair over the end of 2022 with a co-worker. We are both in tech industry in Bay Area (and it will be easy for her to change jobs if it comes to that as a result of reconciliation - before anyone asks) and we have one child (9F), otherwise normal life and pretty decent relationship.
I found out about the affair and busted her, we both flipped out and things got hectic for awhile. I wanted to reconcile but she realized she was very unhappy, and now doesn't know what to do. She claims she didn't want to leave, but wasn't trying to destroy the marriage either and was just...stuck. She ended up in a bad place emotionally and made a series of choices she now views as mistakes. She claims that it didn't diminish her relationship with me in her eyes at the time, and sort of compartmentalized it. We have been separated all year, and living separately since February. We attended counselling, and are continuing with it as we both have things to fix up in our selves.
We are living apart and "single" with a DADT policy. The idea being that if you want to have another serious relationship with someone then its pretty clear you don't want to work on this, but in meeting other people you may also realize that you didn't appreciate what you had/want to maybe get another 20-30 years out of this. Maybe you have sex with someone and it sucks, maybe you have a date and its terrible, or maybe its awesome. But it will probably tell you a lot about where you are at. I went on a couple of dates and they ranged from mediocre to pretty good. Had a ONS with someone and basically hated it, made me very uncomfortable overall. But I felt like I also understood more about how she could engage with someone else, and it actually made me a little bit more sympathetic and take the affair less personally. People are just lonely sometimes and that's a terrible feeling, most people aren't trying to be awful they're just trying to fill a void that is very painful. I feel like it gave me a lot of perspective on her decisions and I became a lot less angry (and a lot less interested in anyone else, but it was a useful experiment I guess). The overall takeaway is that anyone I meet, I just keep thinking of my separated spouse, it really affirmed that she is the one I want and want to be the best version of myself for.
Has anyone had a similar experience and managed to reconcile with their spouse? How long did you stay separated?
TL;DR! Married 18yrs, wife (39F) had a brief affair and I (42M) found out, we separated in January, living apart since February, now both "single" for the full experience of separation. I slept with someone and hated it, it convinced me she is the only one for me. Looking for hope.

2023.03.29 03:07 tigergen Couple questions, having just finished the second film...(spoilers)
In the first movie, didn't Jake unite all the tribes? Did that include the Metkayina and whatever other Na'vi might appear in future films? I don't remember any looking very different like these new ones.
Also, if the humans have the technology to implant someone's memories into an Avatar, why didn't they do it with Jake's brother?
Not really a question, but I found Jake's behavior in this movie frustrating. The whole idea that by leaving the Omaticaya he would keep the tribe and his family safe was fairly absurd; wouldn't the humans always be after the Unoptaniun? Seems like having a leader that knows the enemy would always be an advantage.

2023.03.29 03:07 kickbut101 Trinity xbox 360 with E 68 error, just replaced southbridge error still there. ideas?
I bought a used xbox 360 slim trinity from goodwill and it seemingly worked so I did the RGH 3.0 mod to it, which also worked and I just continued on.
As I was getting to upgrading the HDD to an SSD that's when I noticed the E68 error and I thought it was super weird. I had no issues with hard drives when I don't have the ODD (Optical Drive) plugged in, only when I put it all back together with ODD and HDD plugged in do I see the error.
I thought it was southbridge issue so I replaced that tonight, buttoned it all back up and it once again gives me that error.
So I am suspect it's power issue or maybe cable issue for the ODD but at the moment I am not interested in taking it apart again.
Anyone have any success stories or ideas to try? I did in fact try a couple different hard drives, and it gives issue with each one.

2023.03.29 03:07 Southern-Tap1355 Not sure why anymore
Been regular blunt smoker for the past 12 years. Been off the marijuana for 1 month 16 days. I decided to quit cold turkey cause I’ve tried the weaning off method and that never worked for me. I’ve tried many times in the past but never went past a few hrs. I came to the realization I had to stop, not for my health but because I was spending over $1600 a month and wasn’t feeling that euphoria anymore. I’m working from home didn’t help the habit as it was only getting worst. I haven’t had any cravings for it but do miss the activities I did while smoking… none sense social media tv etc. I thought by quitting I would become a better person in the inside, thought I would be a better father, husband etc but I find myself acting the same way if not a little more irritable. A lot of people blame weed for this and that but at the end of the day we are our own worst enemy and vices. We make the choice to smoke it and honestly I think it had a better impact on my marriage then without it. It helped me be more understanding and put myself on my spouses shoe. It helped me rethink my choices and understand certain mistakes. It helped me be more patient with my kids. The downside was I hated the smell afterwords and felt ashamed because I knew my kids could smell it on me. I have an app that has been helping keep track of my time, and money saved which helps but I guess I’m coming to the conclusion that is it even worth it? Yes I’m saving money and getting better sleep(I guess) but I’m just not sure anymore…. People die everyday for on reason or another whether it’s cancer, heart disease car accidents, homicides etc. I’m sorry if I’m going off in different tangents but I’m trying to get everything out and make sense at the same time. I would say I’m pretty successful in my career and smoking has never hindered it. Been a productive smoker for the past 12 years and now here I am…1 month and a half and I’m exhausted… it’s a constant battle with myself to try and stay busy and supplement the time I would be smoking with something else. I’ve tried and have been trying but the only thing I can do is try and sleep it off because I’m truly not interested in following through with any activity. I know a lot of you will say I haven’t found the right one but I’m trying… tv not working, games not working, I still work out daily but weed has never stopped me from that. I’m not rich by any means but what’s the point in saving money if I can’t reward myself with something that “ reset” me everyday. Yes earlier I stated it wasn’t doing much for me but it always “reset” me. I felt as if it was my reward for all the hard work I put in as a father, husband, provider… This group has been inspiring and discouraging at the same time. It’s inspiring to see people whole have lasted longer then I have but discouraging to know that you can go soooo long and poof you relapse. I’ve always been my own worst enemy and nobody judges me more than I do. I feel bad every time I would get an oz but felt great when I took that 1st puff. My inner self says I can be better and do better but I ask myself why? Why not just do what makes me happy and has worked? Why try and fix something that’s been working? Does it even need fixing to begin with? I get that everyone’s situation is different but I’m starting to miss the point of why I even stopped. I’m not being and less or anymore of a husband or father. I can drop dead tomorrow and then what? Was it worth it? I would say no because I haven’t rewarded myself the way I have been for the past 12 years. Nothing I try to replace it with has been helpful. I’m just finding myself questioning it all. I guess to say I’m never going to do it again is a bold statement to make. I don’t know what tomorrow brings and neither does anyone. I just want to be “happy” maybe I’m writing this to try and convince myself that it’s okay to go back but I also have that other side saying to keep going? Going to what though? Sorry for my tangent but I’m just everywhere at this point.

Is it weird to control or does driving feel good in this game I loved the game "blur" and "Mario kart" if it feels like one of those I'm in.
I did not enjoy driving in hot wheels unleashed so if it feels like that I'm out.

2023.03.29 03:06 l00ky_here Anyone Else feeling underwhelmed by Evelyn Hugo?
SO I just read the book and honestly thought that I read better in the 80's with Judith Krantz, Danielle Steele, and Sydney Sheldon. It was a very underwhelming book where I just didn't connect to the characters and found the whole thing overrated. I don't read those authors any more, but there are so many better LGBTQ+ or Historical Fiction/Romance books written today than this one. How on earth did it get so hyped? How is it that people are crying buckets over it?

2023.03.29 03:06 Twiizzzy I'm finally ready to role up my sleeves and take this game seriously, but I'm lost, what do I need to do to get better?
Let me preface this by saying I took a few days off from Tekken. I noticed recently I've hit my second skill plateau. The first one was when I first started the game and it happened when the game finally "clicked" for me. Some of you newer players will know what I'm talking about.
The reason why I took some time off was because I was puzzled if I even want to play Tekken anymore. Don't get me wrong I love the game but at the same time I've been getting so frustrated with my matches recently, that I started contemplating quitting the game. So to not act rash I took a week off.
I collected my thoughts and now I'm back. The conclusion I reached is...I want to get good at this game. I want to get insanely good at this game. It's going to be really hard but I'm 100% up for it. Fighting games in general are something I enjoy and I don't want to stop at Tekken. I want to learn and master SF, MK, the upcoming League fighting game. I want them all. But I know Tekken is my first stop.
So why did I even make this post, well I would like to ask you guys, for some general tips overall and come niche stuff later on. To preface everything I'm about to type the character(s) I play and I plan on playing in the future (of T7) are: Kazuya (aka my current main), Steve (probably my fav character ingame), Kazumi. Outside of these 3 I also have an interest in Heihachi, Jin and Devil Jin, but the first 3 are my primary focus.
So, I'm now in the Orange ranks. And some of the first things I noticed is I'm getting absolutely schooled by some players. I'm only playing Kazuya and I dabbled a bit with Steve and Kazumi. What I'm noticing is I can't break my opponents defenses. They block a lot and I feel as if I'm stuck doing the same 4 moves which they can always counter. On top of that most people in Orange ranks can KBD and I can't yet so that could be why I'm getting frustrated because I always feel as if I'm whiffing and can't really apply as much pressure.
But like I said I want to learn Tekken right now. If this means going all the way back to the beginning and learning fundamentals so be it. What should I do? What should my steps now be to approaching this game? How do I control my temper when losing? I need a roadmap of sorts I can follow.
If anyone took the time to actually read this mini-rant thank you. If you took the time to reply as well thank you twice.

2023.03.29 03:06 StepwiseUndrape574 GTA 6 Storyline: What Could It Be About?
As with most details surrounding GTA 6, the storyline for the game is shrouded in mystery. However, there have been some rumors and speculations about what the game's narrative could be about.
One popular theory is that the game could take place in multiple locations, much like GTA 5 did with Los Santos and Blaine County. This would allow for a more expansive and varied story, potentially featuring multiple protagonists and intertwining storylines.
Another theory is that the game could take a more serious tone, exploring themes such as politics and corruption. This would be a departure from the more over-the-top and comedic tone of previous GTA games, but could potentially create a more compelling and thought-provoking narrative.
There have also been rumors that the game could be set in a fictionalized version of Miami, with a focus on drug cartels and organized crime. This could provide an interesting backdrop for a story that explores the seedy underbelly of the city and the criminal organizations that operate within it.
Ultimately, the storyline for GTA 6 is anyone's guess at this point. However, it's safe to assume that Rockstar Games will continue to push the boundaries and create a narrative that is engaging, thought-provoking, and, above all, fun to play.

2023.03.29 03:06 kcind75 Putting this out there to see if anyone has an explanation...
...that makes sense.
I don't know if Q is real. I don't know if we really will see justice or not. I don't know if it's all a psyop or not. I don't know if Trump is tryin to fight the ones rooted in power or if hes an elite puppet fuckboy lacky. The water has become so murky that I don't think anyone knows what up or down, right or wrong, or anywhere in between.
However, I've always been someone who believes the devil is in the details (no pun intended). The details are where stories fall apart or hold their truth.
So that said...two questions about 2 things that were/are right in our faces...
- The video where Hillary is getting into the van and is supposedly "fainting". If you watch that video closely, there's something that nobody seems to bring up. Yes, maybe she has an ankle bracelet, maybe not. Maybe the dude in the van, supposedly JFK jr (Im not quite in that camp..lol), is patting the seat, maybe not. But there's something else....go watch it. Don't watch her...watch the security. Especially the dudes just out of screen. When she has her "spell"...the security reacted in no more than a second. Bur they didn't react to her, necessarily. The set up a perimeter immediately. And yes, i know they are highly trained but between the several people just at her back...and the security reacting on both sides the way the did. There is no way someone can watch that video and tell me that the security not only didn't fully know what her reaction was about, but that they fully ANTICIPATED it was going to occur. That was not a security detail concerned she was having a heart attack or something. They knew she would react in that way and were prepared to defend their position. Go watch and tell me that's not what you see.
And 2....Why is JFK Jr's gravesight/memorial shaped like a Q? I mean, it's right there to see. Seems to me to be kind of an odd choice if it wasn't meant to convey a message.
I'm sure there a million other details to be debated. But these are two that I've always found difficult to explain away and have never seen anyone with a valid explanation. Look forward to the responses. Thanks

2023.03.29 03:05 joa0510 Unpopular opinion: aside from it bound to be a good game, I’m excited for Iowa vs SC because both sets of fans are insufferable.
I’m going to get a lot of hate for this one, I’m sure lol. However, if I had to have a debate on the most insufferable fans, it’s these two and UConn. You all think the world revolves around your team and while each of these teams in their own right deserves national spotlight (SC - duh, Iowa - Clark, duh, UConn- legacy), let some others have the damn spotlight.
SC- I actually have absolutely no complaints about the team. They are clearly one of the best of all-time, they’re a pleasure to watch, and I love the attitude I see from the players. They’re always helping people up off the floor (Boston, Cardoso, etc.). They don’t smack talk, as they let their game speak for itself. And Dawn is a legend and clearly a phenomenal coach.
The fans need to chill, though. Outlets put stories out about Reese and SC fans immediately, “How about how she did against SC?” Let the girl have a moment (and I’m not even a fan of Reese… Maryland fan here who truly believes now she wanted to be the star and Frese wasn’t having it).
Insert any team name makes the Elite 8 or Final 4. SC fan: “It doesn’t matter, SC will beat them by 50.”
Let another damn team have their moment. VT made their first Final 4 ever. Maryland reached the Elite 8 losing 85% of their scoring. LSU made the Final 4 in Mulkey’s second year as their coach.
Needing to bring SC up in every discussion is obnoxious and doesn’t seem to be the attitude the team itself has.
Iowa: Maybe my problem is more rooted with the team, but it’s the unawareness by Iowa fans. “Why does no one root for us???”
As amazing as Clark is (I’m not denying that before you come for me), she and Lisa Bluder are at times the toughest to sit through a game and watch. I have never seen a player / coach combination complain so much about foul calls. Hands in the air, intensely getting in the refs faces, etc. There is a reason why non-Iowa fans don’t root for Iowa. I have seen the complaining extend to players like Martin.
It is very rare that I have seen Clark called for a bad foul (I have also only watched a few of their games, but it’s not like I have ever seen her foul out, so her reactions are even more frustrating).
Also, yes, I do personally believe Clark deserves POY, but stop making Boston sound like a bad pick. Did you just see what she did against Maryland last night? Also, Iowa should be worried about her, because they have no one to guard her. If Boston needed to play 40 minutes or even played just as much as she did against Maryland, her numbers are way better. She is legit.
UConn; Irrelevant for this game, but UConn just gets added to the list because they swear their players always deserve awards, even when every national writer for NCAAW doesn’t have their player listed. Edwards is a great player, she is not a First-Team All-American, sorry. Every player on First Team deserved it more than her and even some on Second (would have loved to see Miller or Joens as First Team as a Maryland and Iowa St. fan, but I’m the first to admit neither deserved it).
Rant over. Will accept all the hate now. Open for a discussion on insufferable fans, lol.

2023.03.29 03:05 Defcon2030 Door Dash Driver hit my car and took off (Hit & Run)
The neighbor ordered Doordash and as the driver was backing out of their driveway across the street, they struck my parked car hard. It did considerable damage, but they barely stopped, they just took off.
I didn't notice the damage to my car until the next day. I was confused and angry there was serious damage to my car and no one left a note or anything. Fortunately my neighbor has cameras and caught the whole thing on video and audio.
I filed a police report and I'm going to send the video to them tomorrow. Just curious if anyone knows how this will work? I'm not sure who the driver was or how to contact them, but I assume that's something the police and find out.

2023.03.29 03:05 Niatzam Computer Planning Help Appreciated from a First-Timer. :)
What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
I'm planning to do what I would consider some light/casual gaming. That includes Second Life, League of Legends, MapleStory, Diablo 3, and I'd love to be able to run the upcoming Diablo 4 perfectly that's coming out in June.
I'll be watching a lot of YouTube videos, TV series, and movies. I'll probably be on Reddit quite a bit. Basic text based web surfing. I'll be writing quite a bit.
I don't plan on doing any type of photo editing, video editing, or streaming.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
I'd want to spend somewhere near the realm of $1250 CAD. I'm willing to bump it up by several hundred if absolutely necessary, but I'd prefer to proceed as economically minded as possible. I'm not savvy in this stuff, so I don't know if my budget is realistic considering I'm starting from scratch.
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
Within the next month.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
I need everything. I don't currently have anything for a computer. My laptop died a while ago and I've just been using my mobile device, but with tax returns soon coming in, I'm itching to fix it.
I type a lot, fast, and hard. A good, full-sized keyboard with a num pad is important. Nothing 'flat' in style - I have long nails and the keys need to be tall enough for my nails to have room to slide in between keys when I press. If it's flat, I have trouble typing correctly. Very basic "90s style" keyboards are perfect functionally, but I'd like something a bit nicer looking if possible.
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
I don't know what this means, but probably not. Sounds too technical for me to be interested lol
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Not that I know of. If SSD means wifi, I'd like a wifi option. Lol
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
I prefer something sleek/minimalistic. Nothing too bulky or with big/heavy groove/divots/patterns. I like the overall aesthetic of the Segotep Gank 5 (not the pink one).
Color wise, I'd prefer to avoid white or pink. I'm open to any other options that might be more interesting than just black. I don't know if this is even possible, but I love natural/wood textures.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
I'll probably find a copy later down the line.
Extra info or particulars:
I helped my BF build his, but only because I'm dextrous, not because I knew what anything I was connecting did. I was just doing the grunt work. I still only have a basic understanding of what each part does after some research, but I'm trying to get my head around it and learn. I just want something that works smoothly and that will be a pleasant/light/airy addition to my environment. It's possible there are some prefab options out there for me. I have no clue.
Any guidance would be tremendously appreciated!

2023.03.29 03:05 AutoModerator [Get] Dan Koe – Digital Economics Masters Degree Full Course Download
| || | submitted by AutoModerator to GenkiCourses_2023 [link] [comments]
Get the course here: https://www.genkicourses.com/product/dan-koe-digital-economics-masters-degree/ Dan Koe – Digital Economics Masters Degree
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.
2023.03.29 03:05 Odd-Flounder8442 Looking lucid dream pills and now I can’t stop having nightmares.
I bought these Lucid dream enhancing pills for fun and giggles and realized that their not that fun at all. Start off I’m 6’6 240 pounds a big guy and never really had a “lucid dream” I thought that was more of a spiritual thing people have. I took these pills double the amount and for the first two weeks nothing at all so I went to get a refund but realized it was non refundable lol. I stopped taking the pills but Then two days later I started having these dreams , nothing crazy at first but to me it was something different, so I took them again. Fast forward these pills eventually started to work. I don’t remember the last 3 nights but they all been terrifying to the point I’m like do I need a pastor. But today at 6am I just had the worst one.
It started like this. I’m at the gas station no reason at all showing off my old school challenger to some people by the gas pump. I went inside and met 3 people who were extremely cool 2 girls and this guy. We chatted for a minute and talked about music and festivals. The guy in the group , let’s call him chad, Chad had a bike out side and wanted me to try it with him for shits and giggles and I did. I got on ,then he got on the back bar and we took off to do a circle around the building just being boys lol. I take off and notice this guy in front of us. To dodge him I go to the left and soon as I do a car pulls up up to the side I am going on and that random guy pulls out a gun and shoots at the car. I slide to the bike to dodge the crossfire and run for my life in the other direction . I see chad runs into the gas station and I follow. We told the girls what happen and while telling the story the shooter comes in , he looks at us, buys a snack and says what are the points of guns if you not going use them and leaves. We just starred at each other and 10 minutes later we was on a different topic. Dreams be skipping around randomly but then later on the dream
This the creepy part- part 2 After that experience I felt close with chad as a new bro, we almost died together and I felt we both like the same things cars, parties whatever….Chad recently had a grandfather died and the funeral was that day and he asked me to come, I said okay. Dream skipped to the park where I pulled up to the funeral which was in front of the house outside in the middle of nowhere. I get out my car and park, which was about 1000 feet from the ceremony in front of the house. I see chad and the two girls. We all hugged and what not . I sat next to chad cousins and brothers. This is the weird part, nobody is talking to me chad didn’t introduce me to his cousins that are sitting next to me, there’s like 8 of them. The girls are acting like I don’t exist. The guy cousins have formed a little group and we’re talking chatting but it didn’t sound like English. One guy cousins is doing most of the talking when he randomly stops and but when he looks at me he just stares and grins…. I look away…The ceremony starts. Here’s an idea of the layout …We are sitting in the front lawn under this big willow tree. There are about 300 people sitting on white chairs. 1200 feet in front of us there is the main road where I can see my car . Back to the ceremony.
I’m sitting bothered still that chad hasn’t said anything to me after I sat down and hasn’t introduced me and the girls were in front of me and never once looked back to say anything. It got quiet, very quiet, the pastor is started talking. Everyone looked at him with intense stares. He reads and preaches. While he’s preaching I’m zoning in my head and started looking around and eventually got to the willow tree. I follow the branches with my eyes and came across a doll without a head, I turned to tell chad and realized he was starring right at me with this face and says pay attention to the pastor. I did. The pastor started preaching again and I went back to the tree. I continue to gazed the tree and I notice these legs hanging . I look up and there are people hanging by their neck but their heads are fully twisted so the neck has bones stick out from fractures ..I freak out and I turn back to Chad and notice everyone starring at me. The pastor continues talking and everyone heads goes in a 360 bones started popping out and bloods squirting everywhere. I bolted for my car. I look behind me and at this point they have all have gotten up and we’re chasing me. I run towards the high way and realized they are very fast and grabbing my arms to stop me , wrapping flesh off my arms and then I got woken up my by my girl sweating . And realized 7 hours has gone by. Yeeep there was more details but that was so intense in my dream it seems like I am dying. Hopefully they stop
There dreams are getting worst and worst . I don’t like it at all. Lol not taking anymore pills

2023.03.29 03:05 Tyran7us Saved over Outbreak?
I recently was shiny hunting a female Combee during an outbreak. I knocked out 60, and then caught 3 male shinies and accidentally saved again. Since then I have reset my time to keep the outbreak going and am going for my 4th shiny combee, the only issue is I haven’t seen A SINGLE shiny combee since resuming my 3 shiny male save file. I have been hunting for 6 hours and not one shiny combee - am I just extremely unlucky? Or did I somehow “undo” the increased shiny odds of the outbreak by resetting the time and resuming a saved file that already has 3 shinies caught from the outbreak?
