2023.03.24 07:43 lucasHipolito Possible bug with [Vat of Rebirth]

[Vat of Rebirth] is getting counters from any creature or artifact that is destroyed/sacrificed, even tokens.
I don't know if it is intended for it to get the counter trigger with non-permanent so I came here to present the situation.
I was trying a new rakdos sacrifice list that uses vat together with Atraxa and I noticed it gets +1 not only when the creatures are dying, but when I proc blood tokens, treasure tokens, sac the fable goblin token. Basically anyhing.
This is easily reproducible with sparky: - with the vat on the battlefield play [voldaren epicure] or [bloodtithe harvester]; - sac the blood token and see vat triggering;
Also the same with fable: - attack with the goblin to get the treasure token - use the treasure and sacrifice the goblin to any effect; - vat gets +2
Since the card card specifically says the card must go to the graveyard, I think this is a bug.

Recz Picks the Scariest Movies to Watch Right Now - If You Dare
Love the eerie silence just before the devil is out of the shadows? We've scoured the best horror flicks on Netflix, Amazon Prime & Hotstar.
Right after mum puts me to sleep, I can sense someone hiding underneath my bed and calling me out in the woods - the after chills of watching a gripping horror movie. Spanning across timelines and themes, horror movies are unsettling as they tap into your deepest fears and vicariously make you feel the deep dark thrill.
Yet there's something cathartic about watching these horrifying scenes from your safe couch. To fuel your love for Halloween, Recz, a recommendations app guides you to the best horror movie reviews that will ask you not to look back if you hear some noise.
Turn off the lights, grab your popcorn, and get ready to be spooked by these timeless horror classics.
The Invisible Man

Source: Internet
The movie is a well-crafted metaphor about gaslighting that dives into the troubled world of Moss, who is fettered by chains of emotional abuse by her boyfriend. As she manages to escape his imprisonment, she discovers that he allegedly died by suicide. And the very next moment, her abusive tech-maestro boyfriend is found to be stalking her right after his death!
Is he alive and invisible, or she's paranoid and impaired by trauma? You'll have a spooky time finding it out.
The Invitation

Source: Internet
Inspired by Bram Stoker's novel Dracula, the film follows a young woman, Evie, played by Nathalie Emmanuel. Following her mother's death, she agrees to meet her long-lost family members for the first time, only to discover the deep dark secrets they carry with them.
As she is invited to a wedding at a royal palace, she explores the people she's meeting, and the man she's falling for is anything but human.
The Menu

Source: Internet
Expect gory moments like gunshots, blood splatters, a severed neck, gurgling blood, burning, death, and more. The Menu may not feature any supernatural spirits but has numerous ghostly characters to spook you with.
The movie follows a group of people, including a young couple, a food critic, a businessman, and a group of friends, who travel to a remote island to savor at an exclusive restaurant where the host or chef has prepared a lavish menu with some shocking revelations and deadly surprises.
The Platform

Source: Internet
A gripping horror flick follows a man, Goreng, and his cellmate Baharat who are food-starved and fight over the leftovers that descend on a platform from the top floors. The movie is a metaphor pointing at the situation of overconsumption and greed. Though there is more than enough money, food, and resources to go around, overconsumption inevitably leads to inequality as the wealthy are not inclined to share.

2023.03.24 07:41 PhotographWrong7767 Ayara, First of Locthwain + Inkshield if Ayara is destroyed.

A player swung at me with their 24/24 [[Thrun, Breaker of Silence]] commander intending to take me out with commander damage. I cast [[Inkshield]] to keep myself alive and crazily got to put 24 of those 2/1 black and white Inkling creature tokens on the battlefield. I also had [[Ayara, First of Locthwain]] on the field. 24 ETB triggers killed two of my opponents and dropped the other one to 6 life. One of my opponents tried to cast [[Beast Within]] targeting Ayara in response to the "Inklings entering the battlefield".
(Yes he could have cast it in response to Inkshield but we had a lengthy back and forth on the table asking if the Inkshield was allowed to resolve and even the blue player didn't want to counter it so we agreed the Inkshield resolved. Only after it resolved did someone point out that Inkshield's Inkling production would trigger my Ayara. It's a pretty new deck for me and I didn't realise the Inklings were BW when I was just watching Ayara triggers for my mono black creatures)
Anyway, that opponent argued he had a window to destroy Ayara before the Inklings entered the battlefield. My other opponents argued those Inklings didn't use the stack and ETB'd as part of the resolution of Inkshield and therefore the Ayara triggers would always get put on the stack and remain on the stack even if Ayara was destroyed. He made one last plea to cast it in response to the first Inkling entering the battlefield to prevent the other twenty-three from getting triggers but we quickly ruled that the Inklings entered at the same time.
We're good acquaintances and there was no bad blood. We quickly played again after I inevitably won that game but I was left wondering if we did indeed rule this one correctly.

2023.03.24 07:29 lzharsh AITA For not wanting to take an 18 hour car ride with my annoying friend?

So my husband and I are good friends with another couple (Dan & Shannon), and have been for about 15 years. A few years ago they moved across the state, away from all their friends and family. They also have three children. Basically they don't get out much. But when Dan comes to town he always crashes with us, and when they both are in town we usually go out for dinner or drinks. We all get along really well and always have.
Shannon's birthday is the day before mine, so most years we end up celebrating together. This year we decided to go to Vegas- something we have been trying to do for years. After we all made that decision, I started looking up flights and hotels (I'm a planner) and relaying them to Shannon.
Now, two years ago Shannon was in a terrible car accident that left one of her legs immobilized. After I sent her a quote for a flight she said she would have difficulty flying because of her leg. Completely valid. Instead she wanted to drive.
Here's where I'm running into an issue. When it's all four of us driving together, her and I always sit in the back. Shannon is the sweetest, kindest, nicest person you could ever imagine. I love her to bits. Except she NEVER shuts up. I mean you never see her take a breath. Possibly the bigger issue here is that her conversation points are really....dull. During our last outing I spent 45 minutes listening about her periods and the new jackets she got her daughters. Really riveting stuff. She never asks me about myself or what's going on in my life. I get that she is at home with little kids all day and doesn't get a lot of adult attention, but sometimes it's a lot.
The ride between here and Vegas is about 18 hours. And sitting in the back of a small car listening to her talk about kids clothes sounds like torture.
I suggested maybe her and Dan drive and me and my husband can fly down. But her and Dan are pushing really hard to have us all drive down together. My husband said I might be over reacting and be the AH. So, reddit, AITA?
Tl;dr Planning long distance vacation with friends, don't want to ride down with them and fly down instead.

2023.03.24 07:24 Omega9927 My Best Worst Run So Far

This is a long post! Tl;Dr at the end!
So I just started a new run today, modded to hell and back but primarily QoL stuff, Britas, They Knew, Only Cure (it's a fun alternative when the hazmats are all hiding) and Don't Feed The Zombies and Susceptible. I turn off DFTZ hordes because they're broken, and instead zombies only eat corpses they happen to wander past, which is fun.
I have just shy of 300 hours in the game, but don't let that fool you I'm really, really bad at it, so I'm doing my absolute best here to give it a good good try. My character is Maya Hallman, dyslexic burglar who has a lot of focus on being small, quick and stealthy. I know stealth is usually pretty, meh, but when it starts at 3 and you have inconspicuous and graceful it's usually pretty handy to have.
It's worth noting I also installed Evolving Traits World for this run and for the first time. So it turns out Maya is also super anxious and has a lot of trouble sleeping, which is incredibly relatable. This becomes relevant later. Ish.
Maya spawmed in Riverside, at a library and got a good early bump to a lot of recipes through sitting and reading magazines. She was also prepared for the apocalypse and started with a spiked baseball bat, and a hunting knife. There was a commercial kitchen nearby with some steak and chicken just sitting on the benches, so she slapped that in the oven and had a meal for for a queen. Then she went and found a quaint little house free of zombies, behind a tall invincible fence, and dropped her bags there, got changed into her pajamas -a teal satin neglige she definitely didn't pull off a zombie- and slept.
Or so I thought, instead of sleeping, every zombie that walked past the house stirred her awake. So did every single random sound event brought on by the Random Sound Events mod. So the first night was tough to sleep through, even at maximum fatigue. But eventually, after several hours of trying, Maya was exactly well rested enough to get to it. Some powerful item organising later, some early morning Exposure Survival and a bowl of pasta later, we head out to start sweeping through the street.
There were a lot of zombies, and the baseball bat didn't last too long, neither did the hunting knife. But we found and axe and a crowbar so we have backup weapons and they're pretty good. Maya is a burglar anyway, she knows her way around a crowbar pretty well. Using our new weapons and a mostly cleared of food street, we go just up the road to a nearby gigamart. The back door is not only unlocked, but entirely missing so we walk straight on in.
Aaaand set off an alarm. Shit. Maya grabs three fridges and two shelving units worth of food and drink without looking at it, runs home through a couple other houses, and dumps all the food in the fridge or the cupboard. Among the goods are some seven sacks of fruits and vegetables, and about thirty kilos of non-perishables. Tinned foods, cereals and even some chips. A not so bad haul!
I proceed to immediately forget about the alarm, and the crazed blitz out of the store witnessed by many zombies.
A slightly more restful night, and we head to a nearby school parking lot, where I find a bike with a full tank of gas, and a jeep of some description with cracked windows, but otherwise pretty well maintained. We get the bike hotwired no problem and find a key to the jeep. But there's a really fancy looking sports car I'm interested in looking inside of, so I decided to test out one of my other mods I've never really played with.
Better Lockpicking! Maya grabs her newly baptised in blood crowbar, and I get a fun little minigame to pry open the door. I've never done this before, but it's cool! It also drains endurance like nothing else I've ever seen before, and my endurance seems to be coming back much slower than normal, but that's fine. I just want to get inside the car!
Well something I didn't think of, is all the noise this would make, and the inability to fight due to not having any endurance left. All those zombies dragged in by the alarm have been quietly and politely snacking on corpses in my street but otherwise leaving me alone. Until now, because why eat a dead corpse when you can eat a fresh one! So a horde some fifty or sixty thick comes shambling over to contact me in regards to my new cars extended warranty, and take a deposit of flesh upfront. After lots of crazed dragging around, Maya ends up just barely jumping on the bike and getting out of there.
One cool thing is whatever model bike this is has no horn, and instead pressing Q just revs the engine really loudly. So we do that for a while to drag zombies away from home, but it's not good enough in the end and we have to crash somewhere else for the night. I clear out no less than three houses, and STILL have to move onto a fourth house because all the exhausted attacking takes too long and draws too much attention from the zeds. I forgot to clear the fourth. Maya is so tired she passes out and sleeps for six continuous hours before waking up for the first time.
Too rested to sleep more, and with our sleeping pills at home, I check the bathroom to see if there's any in there, and get greeted by two zombies who I had no idea were in the house but of course, it makes sense. I did literally just, not check the house at all. Thankfully Maya is rested, so she takes them down with no worries. No sleeping pills, but that's fine. We find a second jeep, in absolutely perfect condition, and fill her up with fuel siphoned from the bike. Which had so much in it there's even still a bit left in case of an emergency!
We drive back home, and find that the hordes have moved around but are definitely still in the area. But with time, motivation, and a detour through the school, I drag them off in little clusters and slowly whittle them down. I even find a bottle of bourbon on one of them, stuff a pair of zombie socks in the top, and make my first Molotov in 300 hours. Absolutely satisfying, nothing goes amiss, I train all the zombies into a neatly packed congaline of flames and they all die politely.
Maya heads back home and has another restless night, waking up around four in the morning. Eat, take care of the zombies chewing on corpses in the back yard, watch the woodcraft guy take his shirt off on tv. Living the dream. But by now the zombies are starting to stink up the place and we've narrowly avoided corpse sickness by taking that break in the random house for a night, so i decided it's time to start burning bodies. Maya lights a campfire in the back yard and starts tossing corpses into it, easy enough!
But when she stops to have a cigarette, a zombie sneaks up on her. Drawn in no doubt by the crackling flames and the sound of burning flesh, so it's a scramble to pull her mask back on before she gets sick while also training the zombies through the campfire. Hey, at least I won't have to cremate them one by one this way?
Several very close calls and a lacerated arm later, the horde I had utterly forgotten about being drawn into and avoided in the school, is finally, finally, dealt with. So, Maya heads on into the kitchen through the back door for a well earned strawberry milk!
And immediately bursts into flames because a flaming zombie managed to die just on the cusp of my house and now the kitchen is on fire! And I don't have an extinguisher yet! The Stop Drop And Roll mod comes in clutch, and Maya puts the fire out before it gets too bad. She'll be tender on the lower torso for a while, but all in all that's a good trade for her life. The screams of pain draw in a couple of stragglers, but only four zombies comes to check it out. They stumble over some still burning corpses -one actually lost interest in chasing Maya and instead went to monch on a flaming corpse of its own accord- and quickly perish
Then, finally safe, again, Maya heads inside to watch the damage unfold and also, finish off that damned strawberry milk before the fridge burns down. All the counters are gone, all the weapons and the guns, all the cooking gear and even my cupboard full of drugs. But I managed to save my spare bags and it's honestly very pretty, the effects of a fire. Eventually, the fire dies out and only three tiles of kitchen remain. The one with the fridge, the one with the corner cupboard full of non-perishables, and a single wooden chair.
Counting her lucky stars, Maya doesn't even get pajama'd and instead just falls into bed. Somehow, the food, arguably the most important stuff I had, because I pulled it from every house in a two street grid, survived. All the weapons and the drugs and cigarettes are replaceable, and the burns will heal. For the first time ever, I actually have a recoverable run here! If this was my typical run, I would have been dragged down by flaming zombies for daring to use a new mechanic. I'm feeling good about this! I'll update when I inevitably wraparound a stopsign moving all my stuff!
Tl;Dr, Shenanigans after shenanigans ensue that end up with a massive, flaming horde wandering through my base in the early days of a new run, and burning down everything EXCEPT my stockpile of food, kicking off what will hopefully be a very badass character arc!

Alpilean Reviews: Examining the Effectiveness of this Weight Loss Supplement
Alpilean Reviews: Can This Supplement Help You Lose Weight?
Alpilean is a weight loss supplement that has been gaining popularity in recent years. The supplement claims to help you lose weight by increasing your metabolism and regulating your body temperature, resulting in a faster calorie burn. But does Alpilean really work? Let's take a closer look.
The main ingredient in Alpilean is a proprietary blend of six Alpine ingredients, including rose root, rhodiola, and purple coneflower. These ingredients have been studied for their potential weight loss effects and have been found to increase energy levels and metabolism, as well as regulate blood sugar levels and reduce inflammation.
While the ingredients in Alpilean have some promising research behind them, it's important to note that the supplement is not a magic pill. It should be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise for best results. Additionally, it's important to speak with your doctor before starting any new supplement regimen, especially if you have any underlying health conditions.
As for customer reviews, opinions on Alpilean are mixed. Some customers report positive results in terms of weight loss and increased energy levels, while others report no significant changes or negative side effects.
Overall, if you're looking for a weight loss supplement to complement your healthy lifestyle, Alpilean may be worth considering. Just be sure to speak with your doctor first and keep in mind that individual results may vary.

2023.03.24 07:08 commuting_sux When do I get stroppy with the retailer?

Motorcyclist here. I'm an all weather rider so when it comes to spending money on gear I dont shy away from dropping $$ on reputable gear based on good market reviews. Anyway..
Bought some new textiles from a well known Auckland establishment (nope not going to name drop) mid last year. Just before xmas break I rode through some bad weather and rain got through the liner. Took the jacket back to the shop and they in turn sent it away to the distributor. A week later I was told the jacket was ready for pickup with no fault found. I was told to make sure any zips were properly closed. Which I did.
Tuesday afternoon weather hit and I got wet again. Took pics of the areas where water got through and contacted the retailer again - emailed through the pics as well. Was told again they would contact the distributor for comment.
My question to you savvy retailers is, at what point to I get annoyed and start commenting on things like my rights , the CGA etc..? I'm pretty passive but I have this feeling I'm going to get the run around.

2023.03.24 07:04 Eyeballsoffire Perceval Moore (First OC)

This is my first character sheet so go easy on me

- Perceval is disheveled and has beige, splotchy skin. His yellow, dreary eyes shine through his greasy black hair. The dandruff receptacles he calls shoulders droop below his clavicle. His gaunt frame is accented with an audacious stride, which comes from the same place his extra weight does: an occasionally dysfunctional prosthetic leg. It’s a dull brass color with cogs at the knee and springs below the false kneecap, which appear shined due to the fact that it rubs up against his flowing black cloak with each step. He carries a crudely patched burlap sack, off of which hangs a flask and a measure of rope.

- Skepticism: Perceval isn’t one to fall for grifts. Snake oil salesmen don’t impress him and his psyche is bound tightly. Masters of mentalism and psychics have trouble prying into his mind.
- False leg: Born without a right leg, Perceval was equipped with a prosthetic leg made of cogs, springs and whatever was lying around the shop. His movement speed and mobility are generally uninhibited but worsen when his leg isn’t properly oiled and wound. (Sometimes sprockets dislocate for seemingly no reason) This also means he is less vulnerable to tripping attempts made on his right leg, due to the heftiness of his artificial appendage.
- Bad blood: Moore’s former appendage was infected with some nasty magic. Because of a lingering curse, he has an increased vulnerability to necrotic damage. (+2) He has nerve pain that flares up whenever necromantic magic is nearby, which serves as an early warning of danger or a tool for detecting dealers in the dark arts.
- Equipment: Rusty longsword, pot-lid shield and a hand-axe. Backpack includes a crowbar, 3 torches, a tinderbox, 5 days worth of rations, a medium water-skin, a flask and a bear trap. Carries 50 feet of rope strapped to the bag.

- Hilda Moore, a servant in the court of Lord Alabaster, was infected with a wicked blight that led to her death during childbirth. Her lone offspring Perceval, (named after her last living relative, a lord in a far away land), suffered the same terrible disease that afflicted his mother. This led to the medically necessary amputation of his hands at the forearm, and right leg at the middle-thigh. Before handing the child over to a local parish, a professor in Alabaster’s court named Dr. Solomon Fabian caught wind of the sorrowful situation and whisked the child away to his observatory in Hedgeborn. Raised in a gilded tower, hidden in a lush valley, the boy grew to be curious, though he was tragically ill equipped for exploration.
Professor Fabian began conducting experimental treatments and procedures on the boy beginning at the age of 7. It wasn’t until age 10 that the boy's adopted hands stayed attached. When the boy was 13, Fabian resorted to a deal containing unfavorable terms in order to afford his greatest experiment the gift of stride. In exchange for a leg preserved with magic, Fabian agreed to construct a ward for the Criminal titan Botwell Hogspore. After the exchange was made, the professor struggled to cut ties with the greedy baron who insisted on mutual benefit via immoral means.
The new limb granted Perceval freedom of movement, but something in his spirit changed. His disposition became bitter and tyrannical. His skin withered and his eyes seared a frightful yellow. Seeing how the magic changed the boy, the professor replaced the leg with a metallic remnant of an old hobby. Dissolving the pact with Hogspore meant certain doom, but Fabian’s conscience could bear it no longer. On his 14th birthday, Perceval watched his only real family die before his eyes a second time. Hogspore spared the boy, but banished him from Hedgeborn for all of his cursed days. After drifting from odd job to odd job, Perceval finds himself itching for vengeance.

- Perceval is a binge drinker, and on days he can’t trek very far he’s barely functional. He has a very all or nothing attitude about travel and alcohol.
- He isn’t loyal to any deity or religion, which is ironic considering he could really use some magical help and healing. He resents Paladins especially.
- He’s got no connections and the little family that he has resent him.
- He’s physically frightening. He scares children.
- He’s got a few disabilities. They wouldn’t be much of an issue but he doesn’t have access to the proper medication. This means he has chronic pain in his hands and he gets eye twitching due to the necromantic juju in his blood. Not to mention the bum leg.
- Perceval learned the rules of swordsmanship before he had proper hands. His adopted father was a great admirer of the art of fencing and a connoisseur of the blade. In combination with his experience as hired steel, he handles edged weapons almost as well as whisky.
- He can outdrink even the toughest of sailors.
- Mr. Moore knows what he looks like, and uses his startling appearance to his advantage whenever possible. His height, his dark second-hand hands and his piercing, weepy eyes grant him an intimidation bonus.

- Jax and Ibek the leg breakers. They work for Mr. Mojo, a shell trader and Whisp-weed dealer in his close-enough-to-home town of Fishborn. Jax is a cunning dark elf who always knows a guy. He’s done favors for Perceval, and Perceval has done favors for him. They’ve worked, eaten, and fought alongside each other. Jax is the closest thing Perceval has to a best friend. He rooms with Ibek, a gentle half-giant who snaps arms for a living and crotchets in his free time.
- Fritz Gumms the marshal, one of the few staples of law enforcement in the far-west city of Jewelcrest. He gave Perceval a warm meal and a dry cell to sleep in after he caught him stealing from the mayor's office. He’s Percy’s emergency contact.
- Piper (and Marion) the witchy shop keepers. On the outskirts of Hedgborn is a little slum called Sludgeborn, where the servants who don’t reside in the houses of their masters live. Along these strips of housing are carts and booths set up selling everything you could want and plenty you don’t need. In the fabric business is the stitch-witch Piper. She has described herself at various times as both “super fucking chill” and “goth but only for the music and the fashion and the culture and the self loathing.” Her sock puppet Marion keeps her company while she sells camel skins and microfiber underpants.

- Llewelyn Scruffs the bounty hunter. He’s a harengon outlaw that drifted into Jewelcrest around the same time Perceval got arrested. Scruffs bailed him out, but only because there was a much bigger bounty on his head in the next town over. While traveling, they were attacked by raiders. Perceval saved the outlaw’s life, but Scruffs was badly wounded. He agreed to take the cowboy into town, but on the condition that he didn’t turn him in. Llewelyn held up his end of the bargain, but resented Perceval for making him walk the last mile on his own.
- Robin Huperts the tavern keeper. She grew up in an adopted family just like Perceval. During his early adult years, she took pity on him and let him crash in her supply closet. She kicked him out after she caught him stealing beer, but she reads the letters he occasionally sends her way.
- Precious Romwitsy the traveling actress. The Redmoon theater drifts from town to town, finding audiences in everyone from nobility to paramilitary groups to farmers who can barely afford a ticket. The crown jewel of the traveling theater is Precious Romwitsy- a true thespian at heart. She shares Perceval’s periodic problems with alcohol. They’ve swapped plenty of stories, and forgotten just as many at the bottom of a bottle. He repulses her, but her vanity is melted by his witty countenance.
- List of canonical encounters with this OC: None yet!
If you made it this far... idk that's kinda crazy. Thanks tho :)

2023.03.24 06:51 LostBoy1136 Suggestions for affording surgery?

I was morbidly obese for most of my childhood (heaviest was 260 lbs as a 5'6 8th grader). When I got to high school, I convinced my mom to buy healthier food so I could lose weight, and I also began playing football and lifting weights. Throughout my teen years, I put on a lot of muscle and lost a lot of excess fat by improving my diet and exercising habits, but I noticed that my chest was always pointy and my nipples were puffy.
A lot of my "friends" and teammates made fun of me and nicknamed me things like "rocket titties," "cone nipples," etc., and would often squeeze and touch my man boobs to mess with me. It really got to me because I had lost weight to the point where I had a 6-pack but still had pointy man boobs. I talked to my family about it, and they said I was exaggerating and that my chest was normal. My older brother and some of my friends told me that I just had to keep bench pressing and doing pushups to shape my chest more, but I also felt like continuing to build my chest muscles just made it look worse compared to when I was fat because my man boobs pointed out instead of drooping down.
Last year was my final year in university, and I began taking weight training again since we returned to in-person learning, and I wanted to get back into the habit of lifting before my classes and study sessions. I met a lot of cool new people in this class, but a few of my gym buddies started asking me if I've ever taken steroids or anything because they were impressed by my physique but wondered why my chest was pointy and my nipples were puffy. I began to feel insecure about my chest again, and I decided to take the issue to the campus physician (at the time, I had no car nor health insurance to go to an actual physician). I ended up having the visit with a nurse practitioner instead of the campus physician because COVID was raging on campus, and visits for that took precedence over routine exams like mine.
She began feeling the area and said I have a lot of muscle mass, but she felt glands in my chest. She took my blood, did a hormone panel, and told me everything was normal a few days later. However, she mentioned that I would need surgery to remove the breast tissue.
A few months later, I graduated, moved out, and started my first "real" job, but I was spending so much on rent living on my own that it made it difficult to save money. Still, I had put enough away each pay period that I knew I could afford surgery in about a year. But, life took an unexpected turn when I got laid off. While I was unemployed, my family also really needed help financially and almost ended up losing their house, so I blew through my savings and racked up a lot of credit card debt to help them out and also pay my own rent and bills. Eventually, I landed a new job at the end of last year and have been working there for a couple of months, but it doesn't pay as well as my last position, and I've found myself living paycheck to paycheck (at least I have health insurance now).
Last month, I visited a popular clinic in my area (Washington D.C.) that does a lot of male breast reduction surgeries. During my consultation, they said I'd be a good candidate for the surgery because I'm in good physical shape. But, it cost $7,000, and they said that in 99% of cases, insurance wouldn't cover the procedure because it's cosmetic.
Summer is almost here, and it sucks to live another year of my youth concealing myself in baggy clothing even though it'll be uncomfortably hot soon. My friends tell me no one notices and that I'm making a big deal about nothing, but whenever I take their advice and go out in a t-shirt or wear a dress shirt that's actually my size and not too big, people I walk past stare at my chest, people giggle, and kids around my apartment complex laugh at me for having titties. In their defense, I'm 22, and even the older ones are only high schoolers, so I shouldn't take it so seriously. Still, it sucks because it sometimes makes me feel like I'm in school again.
Something else that bothers me is I never have the guts to take a dip in the pool when I get invited to parties or my friends and their families ask me to come over to swim. It's especially bad when attractive girls ask me to get in with them, and I just say, "I can't swim," "I'll get in later," etc. Needless to say, as I'm sure everyone on this subreddit can relate, but gyno has really weighed on my self-confidence for years, and I just want to get rid of it once and for all.
Anyway, the three options I've thought of to get surgery currently are:
  1. Get a better-paying job and save more aggressively. This will probably take a while, though, as it took me five months to get a new job after being laid off from my last one.
  2. Get another credit line. However, I already have quite a bit of credit card debt from my long unemployment bout, and it isn't wise to take on more by immediately charging $7k on a new card.
  3. I don't know how well this has actually worked for others, but I've seen some posts on this subreddit where people mention lying about being in pain to their physician and getting insurance to cover the surgery. I also have a few friends who have gotten insurance to cover nose jobs by telling their doctor that they can't breathe well in their sleep because of the shape of their noses (lol). I don't know if I'd still be allowed to choose the surgeon if I convinced my insurance company, but it might be worth a shot.
TLDR: I'm a broke 22-year-old with gyno. What's the best option of the above three for affording gynecomastia surgery?
Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Let me know what you think, and thank you for reading my post.

2023.03.24 06:51 Imaginary_Market_854 Kitty’s vet may have abused her?

So, I have an 11 year old rescue kitty. She found us when she was about three months old (friends had just purchased kittens at three months old kittens and she was developmentally and size-wise the same). Something had broken her nose and left scars when it healed, and chomped her tail (an inch ended up falling off when she was about five months old but healed beautifully). She has been our darling girl and sweet love for the last 11 years. Her vet of five years diagnosed her with fear based anxiety and aggression, and we give her gabapentin every day which allows her to relax and be comfortable.
It took her 10 years to let my parents be in the same room without running away, although when she broke the ice, she broke it. She ate treats out of my dad’s hand and scent marked my mom like the sweetie she is. When I was pregnant with our daughter she snuggled on my bump, and now she acts like she has silk mittens on and is extraordinarily sweet to our 16 month old. (To clarify, we know to still be cautious with her and our LO, we very tragically have to re-home our 6.5 yo neurotic and also medicated pup to a loving home because she displayed active aggression to our LO this week, and my husband and I both work in fields where we have seen the damage animal attacks can have on children).
So, her vet made it known to us that after reaching 10, kitty needs annual blood work for her prescription. Okay, fine. Super expensive, but whatever kitty needs. However, they had us give her 3x her dose of meds so they could do the blood draw. It didn’t work. She screamed from the back room for well over an hour before they told my husband she needed to be anesthetized. Our kitty weighs only 8 Lbs (just under), her growth was stunted as a little one and she remained small. As always, her blood work was perfect… however… they gave her too much ketamine for one thing. It took her about 12 hours to rest with her mouth closed after arriving home. She couldn’t blink correctly. And, worst of all, she urinated and defecated on herself when they anesthetized her, and they did the freaking blood draws on the same freaking side and hip where she sat in her mess.
When my husband picked her up from the vet 2.5 hours later they simply mentioned that she had peed while with them. I smelled/saw/felt her fur the second she got home, but it was too painful to clean for over 24 hours. She was depressed and despondent at her smell. We are moving for my husbands work for a one-year timespan and need them to write her note for her future vet in about 1.5 months time from now so that she does not require further blood work and trauma in her new city to get her medication, but I am freaking PO’d and want to report them the second I can. I have no reason to believe they didn’t abuse he further and handle her roughly. know she gave them a very hard time and can lash out, but THEY diagnosed her with fear based aggression and violence, they should KNOW this.
Who leaves an animal, a fastidious cat no less, in their own filth for hours and then sends them home that way. Wth. We bathed her tonight and expected the worst, but she responded with being wildly uncomfortable and trying to get out of the tub of course, but mostly love and affection as we cooed at her and cleaned her. She knew we were taking care of her. We cleaned all her pillows and dens, and her collar, but omg the color of the water that came out of her fur… no. I don’t know how to move forward but I cannot in good conscience just leave this be. They abused my cat. What do we do? I apologize for any formatting or grammar errors, this is a very stressful time and I’m on my phone typing this. Also, her spunk is now rapidly returning, because she’s an absolute champ of a survivor.
If this is the wrong thread to post this, please direct me in the right way. Kitty says thank you, and so do I!! Long live the catnip farmers!!

2023.03.24 06:46 dubcroster Regretting the AP HEMA Jacket PRO NG 800N

So I'm relatively new to Hema and longsword, and I recently acquired all the gear I thought I needed, including the jacket from the title of this post.
I have unfortunately come to the realization that I don't last more than a single round in this jacket before being completely exhausted, and I believe it's not only due to this jackets weight, but maybe even mostly because of the fact of me bing 800 degrees warm inside it.
Do anyone else have this jacket? Is there something that I can do in order to increase ventilation inside of it?
Should I just try to flip it, and get a light jacket and a plastron instead?
I may not be in the best of shapes, but this jacket makes me feel like being in the worst of shapes possible!

2023.03.24 06:42 Reika_Fujishima [AETHER][MIDGARDSORMR][FC][LFM] JOIN AZURE INFINITUM! A Growing, Global, Inclusive, Active, Organized, and Friendly Community Awaits You! Welcoming Players Of All Experience, Availability, & Play-Style!

We are Azure Infinitum
Visit us at: (
You may have seen us in the Aether data center's party finder during our weekly events, or may have seen our recruitment shouts around the realm in-game in Midgardsormr, but there just isn't enough space in those places to really explain everything wonderful about what our Free Company and community is.
Azure Infinitum is an LGBTQ+ friendly community, and welcomes players of all experience level, play style, and availability. We're a warm home with a balance of online players, weekly optional activities, and flexible ranks from our membership, to our support & leadership categories. We have a 24/7 Support Team, a Councilship that governs each tier, seasonal events of our own, and many resources between the games we support and online services.
Who We Are
We are an established 9-year old community who's home is in Midgardsormr Server of Final Fantasy XIV. We are a structured, well-rounded, welcoming, friendly, and organized community that hosts daily events (check out our calendar: ) that provide opportunity for members to excel. We work to provide an arena and opportunities to establish strong bonds and camaraderie between our members. As a community we are driven, we carry each other forward, and we are proud.
Our Name & Philosophy
Learn more about our global community here: (
Learn more about our FFXIV Free Company here: (
Azure Infinitum means "Azure/Blue Infinity or Infinite Blue/Azure" and there is some mythos behind the name that stems from our guild-wide philosophy of kindness, freedom, vigilance, diversity and activity. We promote positive fellowship among members in an organized guild, with our sights open to our unending endless skies, full of possibility and success together.
Our motto is "As Free As The Azure Sky!" which stuck well when our FC was restructured from an old guild in 2014 as Azure was founded, and it was first shouted as we looked out at a clear blue sky above. has continued to be our electric victory as we continue to snowball in success and activity, our members soaring high through the Azure Sky, flying together!
Click here to learn more about our community ranks: (
Our community has an organized ranking structure beginning with Members who comprise the majority of the roster. Scouts are our support team of Members who've stepped up to more officially support the FC, some work on obtaining a future leadership rank. Lieutenants and Officers comprise the proud Azure Council, a diverse group of players of different specialties and services to the FC, making up lower and higher tier leadership, seeing over the Scouts and the FC weekly events, aside from being admins. The FC Infinitum Master oversees all and leads the Azure Council and the company forward while always keeping the heart and vision of the community alive and in sight. Currently we are re-assessing ranks in the free company, giving more support permissions and duties to our Scouts, while the current council operates as a small team of Lieutenants lead by the FC Master.
Everyone Welcome and Who Fits Best
We have an open door policy. Whether you're casual, a returning player, a veteran, or a newbie, we have a vast array of players in our member roster. Our weekly schedule is organized and provides an array of activity for players of most levels, however we like to ask players who're pretty new or under the level cap, to be extra vocal about their needs while they're still unable to attend some daily events or higher level content that most of our weekly lineup focuses on. We want everyone to have as much fun as possible and have the most success. We find that most players enjoy Azure Infinitum, many have stated that they subscribed to FFXIV much longer than they ever would have imagined after they have been around in our community, as they've gotten involved and experienced all that we offer.
Our FC keeps a daily schedule (see here: of events that are hosted by permitted Scouts and Council ranks, these range from 8-man and 24-man raids and map parties, to WT journal groups and trial clear parties or farms, and more- and attending anything isn't mandatory at all here. We're happy to have you, and its up to our members how much they'd like to get involved. Attendance is optional! There's never any stress to attend FC functions.
Savage Raiding Statement
We find that some hardcore raiders looking for free companies just to join their statics who don't already have one, might not fit well if savage raiding is their only or greatest focus, because traditionally Azure does not have a Savage Static, but focuses more on allowing members to organize their own groups and also provides resources to do so. Despite not supporting an official static for the FC, we hope that hardcore raiders enjoy the wealth of our community's wealth of harmony and overall fun, and that everyone may take initiative to seek out or build a raiding static within our community if they are interested, as opposed to missing out on experiencing Azure. Depending on the content season, we may have an Unofficial static lead by a leader, and routinely offer limited time Savage-learning events that may run for a number of months.
Rules and No Drama Policy
Please take a moment to look over our Rules Page at (, we find that rude individuals and people who create drama are the outsiders here that don't fit well. We know its a big page, so at least visit the General Rules section before joining.
Recruitment Care & Activity
People of Azure Infinitum are often if not always good natured players who found their way to our community looking for a place with structure, friendliness, organization, and great activity, or they've been scouted during recruitment drives and have been well screened. Its a place where one can be social and attend everything, or relax in the background and enjoy the services and facilities of being in an active, organized, and friendly FC. We actively recruit periodically to assist with upkeep of community activity levels, and to meet new comrades. A community that closes recruitment can be doomed to stagnation. Its normal for a community to have an inner core of die hards who log in daily regardless of content releases, and also have an outer core of individuals that range from those with less availability to those who check in during Patches. This is why we take extra care in keeping the fresh blood flowing into Azure, cautious recruitment, and support our active model by always staying welcoming and sometimes running recruitment campaigns and other services. Like this ad!
Handling Online Drama
Because we keep a no-drama policy and have a strong communication network, it is leadership's ultimate priority to handle any issues that may come up as soon as possible, and most people appreciate our problem solving which has inspired many other communities. Between our Support & Leadership ranks, we use a number of report and resource channels to handle situations, and perform problem solving protocols & tactics to fairly address issues as possible. Drama is inevitable at some point for any online community, so its important to have a large and strong list of moderators (currently around 60!) and a council of leaders (15+) to quickly handle any problems. Luckily, we don't have a lot of drama, but we're always very well equipped and very prepared. Our community has been commended by game staff in the past for our methods, and we have worked with the FFXIV Special Task Force to ensure as much safety to our community as achievable. It should be stressed that it is up to our membership to report to GM's in-game, and to Azure Leadership should any issues or concerns come up. Its also highly recommended that our members appropriately document evidence that can be used to help us assess situations and make proper decisions. Documenation such as screenshots of harassment is a great example! Our members online safety is greatly important to us and is a number one concern of our leadership team. Our Rules Page at: ( describes a bit more in Chapter 3, including other entries on avoiding/ignoring trolls, playing while intoxicated, depression, and more.
Our Philosophy
We believe in our community and its people, how far we can go, how much we can do for each other, being an experienced community who's core values are positive fellowship, formation of bonds, and indomitable unity.
Azure Infinitum tightly grasps success and masters a casual and lucrative weekly play schedule while inspiring motivation and providing avenues for further success, friendships, and camaraderie among all who freely fly together among our Azure skies.
Founding on the principles of intricately forging a generally drama-free experience with keen leadership and a zealous and mighty membership, Azure has striven to guide and support many hundreds of players through every era of Final Fantasy XIV.
With an illustrious history, company lore, impressive statistics, and a model that is adaptable and blessed with innovative ability, Azure Infinitum claims a dominant presence of excellence and player growth that is possible in our community and extended services.
Estate Organization
We have the entire set-up at our estate, from gardens for members and Krakka Root production (free for members' chocobos), to our stables, nicely uniform clean lawn with hangout spots that are popular, with crafting stations, all available NPCs for simple mats and repairs, cut-scene viewer, toybox, triple-triad board, a fully operational and geared fleet of airships and subs, and our Azure Infinitum Assembly Chamber on the top floor for our meetings where announcements are made at our Grand Assemblies. Check it out if you like at Mist Ward 7 Plot 1.
We also have an organized form of gathering for weekly events in the yard, places to relax, food that is always available on tables at our Cellar, and hold a lot of special events and social games at our Hall. We're also conveniently located next to a Market Board and a Retainer Bell outside of our estate.
Communication and Extended Azure Services
We have multiple services of which none are mandatory, but we provide being ( where our Forums, Event Calendar, News, Company Meeting Summaries, Seasonal Merch Giveaways, Contests, Rules Page, and more take place and can be found. We also have a popular and active Discord Server.
We also have a Facebook Group, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram, Steam Group, (Look us up! Or visit: ( and Linkshells like our Infinitum Alliance LS for contact and aid from our allies if needed, our Azure Hunters LS for Hunters, and our Azure Industry LS which connects our members to our inner crafting/gathering community for newbies to pros.
Also worthy of mention is our big Company Meetings in-game, known as Azure Infinitum Grand Assemblies. Even though we have several avenues that keep people connected, our live assemblies gather the FC in unity where announcements are made first, and all proposals, ideas, and more, can be decided together live with the Azure Council present.
This network ensures a lot of information and communication gets around and has been exceedingly useful to us.
More On Events
One part of our reputation that often precedes us is our event crafting and hosting.
First, let me make sure its clear that attendance is never mandatory, but those who can make use, when possible, of what we provide each day, benefit from our events each week.
Since our beginning, traditions like our Thursday Treasure Thursdays events have run each week. Our weekly line-up presently begins on Tuesdays post-weekly reset, and consists of Raid Tuesdays, Wondrous Wednesdays (WT Journal Parties, often doubles as Trial Clears and Pony Drops), Treasure Thursdays (Endwalker's timeworn maps with groups of 8 doing up to 3 rounds of maps allowing for up to 24 maps ran), 24-Man Tuesdays (full pre-formed Azure 24-member alliances are made and raids are cleared, will be returning upon the release of EW's 24-man), Super Azure Slayer Sunday (our weekly meetup to do all sorts of PVP content be it Rival Wings or Frontline), and Monstrous Mondays (helps clear the current and previous patch extreme trials).
Special, Seasonal, and Quarterly Events
More info here: ( the latest event news & more at: (
We also have what we call Special and Quarterly Events. These types of events are Weekend-Long-Events that usually consist of a theme or celebratory social events we craft. During these events we hold big Riddle Races, Costume/Glamour shows and contests, 3-Story Mansion Maze Races, Speedrun Dungeon Races, Hide and Seek games, Custom Quest Events, Discord events like Cards Against Humanity nights, Comedy events, PVP Tournament Circuits, and more.
Our Special and Quarterly events are Azure Day Weekend (Takes place 3 times a year across a weekend, celebrates the FC), Azure Summer Festival (3-days at the end of August in partnership with Child's Play, raises money for children in long-term care, anniversary of historic FC event called the Lunar Rebellion), Anniversary Azure Day (a big weekend event in November that celebrates our Founding), Azure Day Saint's Wake (celebrates Halloween/All Saint's Wake), Azure Starlight Day (celebrating Starlight Day/Christmas/December Holiday Season), Azure Grand Melee and Duel Tournaments (PVP Circuit series crowning our PVP Champions) and more.
Azure Day Weekends
If you've been around our server you may have heard of our Azure Day Weekends. Our Azure Days take place quarterly as mentioned just above, with four evolved editions called Azure Summer Festival, Azure Day Saint's Wake, Azure Starlight Day, and Anniversary Azure Day. With Azure Day Weekends and related events traditionally occuring quarterly our members are always excited to see the next big weekend of crazy and fun social games, and our showering of the free company in gil and prizes galore. We go all out when we celebrate the free company, and Azure Days are another way we find for leadership to give back to the community. 2023 and beyond is now host to additional seasonal Azure Day events!
We're always giving our members a chance to have fun, win big, and make some great memories in the in-game family we've become. Something fun is always on the horizon in Azure.
I almost can't stress enough how friendly our community is. We have a vast variety of members from hardcore gatherers and crafters, social butterflies, chill veterans, experienced raiders, level grinders, support teams, PVP aficionados, mechanic specialists, and mentors. We're also very friendly to all casual players as well and we keep an open door so long as recruits are always aware that we have a no-drama tolerance here.
​Evolution into a Gaming Clan & Network
Plans are in the works and foundations are being laid that is slowly turning our community into a larger gaming network, with our first established Azure Wing with regular occurring activity being founded in Monster Hunter World, this has led to a successful Destiny 2 clan and more. Becoming a member of our Discord and/or Free Company now means access to things like our huge discord, Azure Wing membership in other games, and being able to join in on any of our other activities in the general community. Azure Network as its being called at the moment, is growing with an all-new website and community features for playing together across Final Fantasy XIV and to Azure Skies beyond!
We rank high as one of the top FC's in Worldwide Activity on lodestone, and have for a long time. Most of our players are divided between the US East and West Coasts, members in East and West Canada, and a few outside the US or in EU or Aus zones. Because we do have an activity policy (mentioned below) we keep a standard flow of people, and have crowds in the early morning, late morning, early afternoon, afternoon, evening, and late night crowds.
Elitism isn't our style. Our community boasts a broad range of characters, great personalities, the proud, and also some silly goofs. But elitism isn't welcome, no matter how successful we are or how large we grow. We're always welcoming towards fresh faces interested in joining our guild, and the in-game activity ranges between 30-60+ online at once during prime time hours, sometimes around 70+ on patch days, and usually always with half the roster logging in throughout a 24 hour period, and around 15-30+ during the night.
Activity Policy
We ask that our members do not go missing without logging in for more than 60 days straight. If we hear word from someone or have some kind of decent excuse, we place our members on our On Vacation rank, which lasts presently until 90 days have passed. Exceptions are made for military deployments, hospital stays, financial issues, disability/health related issues, moving, or other reasons that might fall on a case-by-case basis.
All members not heard from in 60 days (roughly 2 months) or currently 90 days (roughly 3 months) are discharged. We allow 3 joins to Azure Infinitum in total, but exceptions can be made due to reasons listed above. If removed for inactivity, or you've left our FC for another reason and haven't already joined 3 times, you're always welcome back, but please remember, we are not a revolving door.
Keeping our roster full of members who have been online and presently play the game actively ensures an active environment for our players who play often. It also keeps our credits and clerical processes balanced across our network, and allows space for new faces to join our big happy in-game family of comrades.

2023.03.24 06:39 dark_triaded_ho If you do end up being hired, remember it's all about appearance and NOT essence

I have been in Corporate America for a few years (sorry, I do not have any experience with companies in other countries, so my post is going to be exclusively about Corporate America). My unique position allowed me to see what goes on behind the scenes. If you do end up getting a job after going through the recruiting hell, remember that it's all about appearance and not essence.
Okay, enough. I will be accused of being bitter and jaded. I am. I just want to find a way to generate passive income without having to deal with these idiots, and their BS, and their recruiting hells

The first is sucking out the blood and power of any opponent. Second is to produce a chemical that enhances the power as it goes into the user. Finally is to inject a toxin that weakens what's left of the victim and their power. Every time the user gets a new power they can grow another tendril, further enhancing this power.

2023.03.24 06:20 Cannabun Guess I'm headed to jail for being me?

-tries to not panic- tl;dr Did not ask to be a homeowner, didn't ask for any of my disabilities either, yet here I am. If you don't live in a corrupt "small city" (less than 5k residents) this might not make sense to you. I also have C-PTSD, so my need to feel safe is like a priority. Having an Officer lack the intelligence to understand that just because a neighbor cried to you on the phone that "cameras are scary" does not mean her cry session turns into a law... Tell everyone else to take their cameras down. This not so intelligent Officer is willing to turn a civil complaint into a criminal one, all because he "hates coming down here". And of course, the day of my psych appointment, the poor woman is sick :( I was soooooo looking forward to her advice. Yes, autistic/adhd folks can say big words too, maybe not correctly but we can spell it! I contacted thirty-nine lawyers, none are interested in pursuing, so I might just go Pro Se in small claims court. I did report the police to the US DOJ Civil Rights division. Wrote a new template, this time they'll want to embark on this journey with me? lol
"I implore you, with the utmost urgency and fervor, to provide your astute legal expertise and unyielding advocacy as I am relentlessly besieged by a nefarious campaign of harassment and discrimination orchestrated by the (City Redacted) Police Department in (City Redacted), (State Redacted). As a young (exact age redacted)-year-old adult grappling with a plethora of physical and mental health challenges, I face this abhorrent tempest of injustice with heightened anxiety, borne from the indelible scars of my childhood traumas. The insidious climate of political partisanship pervading the (City Redacted) Police Department obfuscates the truth and makes it nearly impossible to discern whether I am receiving fair treatment or being victimized due to my political affiliations. In 2018, a malevolent (City Redacted) City Councilman, incensed by my exposure of his embezzlement of over $40,000 from a local tri-state business in the 1990s, left a chilling death threat on my cellular voicemail. This reprehensible act should have disqualified him from public office. Yet, the (City Redacted) Police Department's audacious dismissal of my report, underscored by their mocking laughter, unambiguously displayed their blatant disregard for my safety, welfare, and very existence. The year 2023 has witnessed a nefarious resurgence of harassment by the (City Redacted) Police Department. In their latest stratagem, they seek to distort a civil neighbor dispute into a criminal matter, justifying their actions with the spurious claim of being "tired of coming out here." They have brandished their supposed authority to arrest me, labeling me a "nuisance" for the mere presence of three Amazon packages on my porch, whose cumulative weight surpasses my physical capabilities due to my debilitating disabilities.
My primary care physician has corroborated my struggle with Complex-PTSD, anxiety, ADHD, arachnoiditis, scoliosis, kyphosis, and limb length irregularities, which inflict agonizing pain in my hips. An advanced functional MRI has disclosed that my bones belie an age nine years advanced beyond my chronological age. Furthermore, I am assailed by a life-threatening Vitamin D deficiency, with my blood containing a paltry 5.6ug of Vitamin D, a stark contrast to the 30ug typically found in healthy males. My already formidable health challenges are intensified by a genetic disorder known as Mosaic 47 XXY Klinefelter's Syndrome. The pernicious consequences of the (City Redacted) Police Department's incessant harassment on my physical and mental well-being are magnified by the constant looming threat of their unannounced appearance at my doorstep to arrest me for any pretext. Their calculated targeting capitalizes on my vulnerability as a disabled individual devoid of a support network and stable employment, resulting in a flagrant violation of my constitutional rights under the First, Fourth, and Fourteenth Amendments. Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) explicitly prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities and requires public entities, including law enforcement agencies, to accommodate the needs of such individuals. The actions of the (City Redacted) Police Department not only contravene the ADA but also perpetuate a toxic culture of harassment and discrimination that has become utterly intolerable. In the face of these appalling circumstances, I entreat you with the utmost urgency to provide your legal assistance in redressing the violations of my rights and holding the (City Redacted) Police Department accountable for their reprehensible actions. If, however, you decline to render such assistance, I shall be forced to represent myself as a pro se litigant, undaunted in my pursuit of justice and determined to expose the systemic discrimination and harassment that has plagued my existence. The unscrupulous conduct of the (City Redacted) Police Department extends far beyond my own experience, insinuating a deep-seated pattern of prejudiced behavior that has, for too long, evaded scrutiny and reproach. I am but one among a multitude of victims ensnared in their web of misconduct, and it is imperative that we dismantle this pernicious structure to ensure the protection of our fundamental rights and liberties. This unyielding determination to seek retribution and restore my dignity is fueled by the hope that my actions may serve as a catalyst for change, inspiring others to stand against the oppressive machinations of the (City Redacted) Police Department and bring about a transformation that will foster a more just and equitable society for all.
In this arduous and grueling battle, your adept legal acumen and unwavering advocacy will be invaluable in navigating the labyrinthine complexities of the legal system and securing a favorable outcome that will not only vindicate my rights but also illuminate the path towards reform. My steadfast resolve is fortified by the knowledge that, together, we can confront the insidious specter of injustice and discrimination that has shrouded the (City Redacted) Police Department and usher in an era of accountability, transparency, and respect for the rule of law. I implore you, once more, to lend your formidable talents and unrelenting support to this critical endeavor, as we strive to dismantle the pernicious forces that have sought to undermine our collective dignity and erode the foundational principles upon which our nation was built. In the event that you decline to assist me in this noble pursuit, I will not falter or waver. As a pro se litigant, I will marshal all my resources and muster the indomitable spirit that has sustained me thus far to expose the truth, hold the (City Redacted) Police Department accountable, and initiate a process of healing and renewal that will reverberate throughout our community and beyond. The weight of this monumental undertaking is immense, and the stakes are higher than ever. However, with your esteemed guidance and unwavering support, we can triumph over adversity, confront the scourge of injustice, and restore faith in the institutions that have long been the bedrock of our society. It is with this fervent plea that I beseech your timely intervention and legal expertise in this matter of utmost importance, for the restoration of my rights, the pursuit of justice, and the realization of a more equitable future for all. As we embark upon this odyssey for justice, I am cognizant of the daunting challenges that await us. Yet, it is the very gravity of these obstacles that imparts a sense of urgency and purpose to our endeavors. In the face of adversity, we must remain steadfast in our commitment to uncover the truth, hold the (City Redacted) Police Department accountable, and vindicate the inalienable rights that are the cornerstone of our democracy. In the annals of history, it is often the most unyielding of struggles that engender the most profound and lasting transformations. We stand at the precipice of such a defining moment, poised to reshape the contours of our society and usher in a new era of equity, fairness, and justice for all. As I entrust my fate to your expert guidance and legal prowess, I am buoyed by the unwavering belief in the righteousness of our cause and the unshakable conviction that, together, we can surmount even the most formidable of challenges. It is through our collective efforts that we will ultimately prevail, securing not only the vindication of my rights but also the restoration of faith in the institutions that have long served as the guardians of our liberties. I implore you to join me in this momentous undertaking, lending your considerable expertise and indomitable spirit to our shared pursuit of justice. In the face of adversity, let us stand resolutely, united in our resolve to expose the insidious practices of the (City Redacted) Police Department and champion the cause of those who have been similarly victimized.
In the event that you are unable to offer your assistance, I will forge ahead undeterred, embracing the mantle of pro se litigant and marshaling all available resources in my quest for justice. Though the journey may be arduous and fraught with peril, I am undaunted by the prospect of navigating the treacherous terrain of the legal system, buoyed by the knowledge that my cause is just and my resolve unyielding. The struggle for justice is not a solitary endeavor, but rather a collective undertaking that transcends the bounds of individual experience and unites us in a shared pursuit of truth, accountability, and reform. As we gird ourselves for the battles that lie ahead, let us never lose sight of the higher purpose that guides our actions and imbues our efforts with meaning and significance. In the immortal words of the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." As we join forces in this epic struggle for truth and justice, let us reaffirm our commitment to bend that arc ever closer to its ultimate destination, forging a more just and equitable future for ourselves and generations yet to come."
I'm so tired, I haven't been able to sleep for days because I'm scared they could show up at any time. My resting heart rate has been over 120 beats per minute for the last week, blood pressure is nuts, 155/110. My alprazolam, diazepam, clonazepam nor my Seroquel are equipped to handle this nonsense. Sadly, psych says I'm at the max for benzos, lame. 60mg diazepam for stress is like pointless. Sadly, our state doesn't understand the difference between addiction and physical dependency due to your disability. Asked for something to just knock me out for a while, and I got a "Hope you get through this." reply instead of a prescription #lovely lol. Okay, I'll shut up now, no one will probably read this anyways lol.

2023.03.24 06:19 QasimAliMalik What made your mom or dad completely change into a different person?

My real father died when I was 4. When I was 5, my mother met and married a new man named Tom.
Very quickly, Tom and I formed a deep bond, and by all accounts, he was (and still is) my dad. I was a “daddies girl” all through my childhood and into my teens. My mother was more of the disciplinarian in our home, but my dad was always a pushover. I could get away with murder…. as long as mom didn’t find out! I loved my dad more than anything… he was my confidant, my protector, and my favorite person.
When I was 16, my parents divorced and both moved to separate cities, 3 hours apart. I rarely got to see my dad after that, mainly due to distance, but also because I was 16 and just got my license and was off on my own, having fun. It was during this time that my dad became involved with a new woman who had 2 daughters from her previous marriage, aged 5 & 7. Unfortunately, their lives had been very tumultuous, as their father was a violently abusive alcoholic, and both girls had major behavioral issues, which didn’t become a problem until a couple of years after my dad and their mother married.
The oldest girl (Christina) was about 9 when she started fighting at school. We’re talking full blown fist fights with boys and other girls, where blood was spilled. It was pretty serious. Then she started acting out at home, and beating up the younger daughter, breaking windows, throwing heavy objects at the walls and doors… she even took a razor knife to her bedroom carpet, shredding it down to the subflooring. As the years went on, the anger and destruction only got worse. The younger daughter also began showing the same signs of destruction, but she was sneakier and got away with a lot more than we ever knew.
By the time Christina was 12, she and he sister weren’t allowed to be in the same room together because it always turned into a brawl, where things got broken and people or pets got hurt. My dad had to replace windows in the living room 6 times in 2 years… he replaced the TV 4 times, replaced the front door 3 times, replaced sections of drywall throughout the house repeatedly… the house was always in a deconstructed state. He even had to put locks on his bedroom door because both girls would just go in and take whatever they wanted without asking.
The worst part was that my dad’s wife wouldn’t let him discipline those girls. She had seen their real father beat the living daylights out of them, and swore it would never happen again…no man would lay a finger on her girls, ever again. And they knew it. Both girls learned very quickly that they could get away with anything, and never receive a punishment. When my dad did set rules, his wife just negated them. This went on until Christina left at age 17. She got into drugs and started hanging out with a bad crowd. Eventually she got herself caught up in a life of addiction, prostitution and homelessness. When she did come home for visits, she always stole things… money, jewelry, my dads new truck… which was later found burnt to a crisp in a ditch. Actually, that was just the first time… Christina stole my dads truck 3 times, each time selling the truck for drugs.
There are about 20 years of devastation that was caused by Christina and her younger sister, Pam. Both of them pushed my dad’s even temper to the limit, but he wasn’t allowed to say a word. He just had to live with the abuse and devastation.
Because of all the years where my dad had to be silent while watching his home and possessions be destroyed by self-entitled, spoiled brats, my dad became a different person. Long gone is the calm, laid back guy that made a joke out of everything and laughed frequently. In his place is a beaten-down, husk of a man that has no say in his own home. He’s usually grumpy and rarely jokes about anything. And though the 2 girls are long moved out… Christina died of an overdose in 2019, and Pam has 2 kids of her own and has been married 4 times, he still has no say in his own home.
In the last 5 years, my step-mother has taken on 3 other children from drug addicted mothers who couldn’t care for them, (ages 18 mo - 3 years when she got them 5 years ago). My dad is retired now, but he will never get to enjoy his golden years because he’s stuck raising other people’s children, without being able to be a true parent. He isn’t allowed to have a say about anything.
I honestly have a hard time calling home to speak to him anymore… he’s just not the same dad I knew and loved. And it truly pisses me off, because my dad was the best dad in the whole wide world.

2023.03.24 06:19 statusblue Was Bo the "problem"?

In the game day discussion, I sparked a good conversation and thought I'd make an individual post.
With recent success, going 9-3 in their last 12 games and beating playoff contenders such as the Stars, Leafs, Sens, and Kings, one question arises: Was Horvat the problem? Was he the type of leader for whom players would die in battle? It definitely seems like there has been a shift in the locker room culture since he left. Maybe it's due to coaching, or maybe the addition of players like Beauvillier is propelling the team to new heights. Perhaps it's the popular meme of a full team of Gretzkys when the games don't have meaning.
One thing is for sure: I sense a completely different vibe with this team. There is more willingness to go into the dirty areas, more willingness to battle for each other, and a willingness to die in battle for the sake of giving their teammates a shot.
Horvat is a great player with a strong work ethic and leads by example. Don't get me wrong, he was amazing as a player. However, as a captain and leader to lead the team to the promise land, it seems that he wasn't getting buy-in from the team. His lack of aggression and willingness to stick up for his teammates after a big hit was always frustrating to me. I turned a blind eye to it, hoping that he would come around to start beating on guys who were picking on players like Hughes. Unfortunately, that didn't happen.
I think if and when they announce Petey as the captain, we will see a winning culture imbedded into the team. Petey is fierce and he has the eye of the tiger. Killer instincts and cold blooded killer on the ice. He will lead by example and he will force players to buy in. Here's to hoping this change is the spark the Canucks need to get over the hump of "middle of the pack" every single year.

2023.03.24 06:18 OddMemory2244 The Crimson Court made me abandon Darkest Dungeon

I had 25 hours in game, I had just upgraded the smithy and guild to max, I was just starting to have a couple decent teams at lvl 6, and since I looooved this game so much, I went back and purchased all the DLC without looking at reviews, and I installed all of them. I went in blind, not knowing what to expect from the Crimson court. Oh, an invitation? A new area? Neato! And so I went.
A few hours later, I am closing Darkest Dungeon and never opening it again. The Crimson court ruins the whole game, because it takes over and cancels the normal gameplay loop, replacing it with something so, so, so much worse. The crimson curse is the single worst gameplay mechanic they could have added to this game. Not only that, but the fact that Crimson court NPCs randomly roam the corridors of the actual castle, now, means that I can't even have a team of "crimson cursed" champions to handle the DLC, knowing they'll die and it's ok. EVERY champion is getting the curse in normal missions. After just a handful of weeks doing excursions in the normal areas, due to the roaming bloodsucker monsters, virtually my whole roster has the curse, and the blood is exceedingly rare. Champions need blood far, far more often than blood is found. I cannot even go to the Crimson court itself to farm blood BECAUSE I NEED A FKOJEFWEIMKJLING INVITATION AND RNG IS DENYING IT TO ME.
So, I cannot send my lvl 6 champions on regular missions - therefore, it becomes impossible to kill bosses. I am loath to send lvl 4-5 champions either, given that they also all get the curse and just constantly die. The building that gives 2 bloods per week is not even enough to keep my currently-cursed champions from dying, and every healthy champion sent on an expedition is 100% guaranteed to be infected by the curse, but sending a party of infected is suicide because all 4 then require blood WHICH I DON'T HAVE. The only gameplay loop that allows any kind of progress now is to let the cursed champions die until there's just enough of them to be sustained by the 2 weekly vials, then just recruit cannon fodder from the coach and send them on a single mission, where they inevitably get infected, and then dismiss all four, only to restart with 4 new recruits. It does not allow leveling up, it does not allow game-after-game progress, it does not allow to have any lvl 6 champion, it does not allow to beat bosses, it does not allow to tackle the Darkest Dungeon. In one word, it is garbage.
The game is not playable at all, with the Crimson court active. Literally, absolutely, objectively unplayable.
There were ways to make this work. I'd really like an option to toggle off the fking court and be able to return to my game. There's also the option of locking the Crimson court to be only accessible for people who finished the game and are looking for an extra hard challenge that will change the gameplay loop of THE ENTIRE GAME, for instance, if they wanted to really make the Crimson court invade the entire game and upend the normal game experience. But I argue that it could have been fine if they kept everything the same but if the curse was kept inside the court, removing all roaming bloodsuckers, so players could choose to sacrifice chosen champions to the curse to advance the DLC. It could even have been good! But the fact that every champion going to any mission is quasi guaranteed to get the curse, the fact it becomes impossible to do normal missions AT ALL while the court is active, is the worst decision I have ever seen a game dev make.
The ONLY way to advance, now, would be to sacrifice all of my hard-grown champions by throwing them at a wall, letting every lvl 5-6 die until I get another invitation, advance the DLC, then restart - throw my champions at the wall to die of the curse in the hope of a single invitation, then advance the DLC a bit more, etc. I looked up how long it is - if it continues to take multiple hours for one single invitation to drop by chance, it would easily take me 15, 20, maybe up to 30 hours of grueling, unfun gameplay just to end the DLC and FINALLY being able to play the game itself.
My only option is to tolerate the grueling DLC that cancels the entire normal game (I'm not doing that) or delete my save and start over from 0 without the DLC (I wasted 25 hours on my save before the DLC bricked it, I'm not doing that again). So, last option: Uninstall Darkest Dungeon and forever remember it as this amazing game that is rendered entirely unplayable by its VERY poorly thought out DLC.
