Just recently received this in a trade. Like the knife, just not for me because I prefer soft-medium detents. This thing has a strong detent and fires like a rocket. Haptic #729.  
Purple annodizing on clip and pivot.   Drops shut.   Regarding the recent controversy regarding the brand, it passes the spine whack.  
Light marks on the clip and blade.  
Comes with pouch and Selinko card. I can verify the product is genuine on the Selinko card, but can't seem to pull up the information.  
Prefer to trade but will also sell I guess.

2023.06.08 00:53 justapcguy Kinda hitting Rock bottom here... Especially now with the current bank interest rate.

Really stressed about what's occurring as of right now with banks. I am still living with my parents, and just today, my parents were telling me there is a chance we might lose our house. Because of the bank loan interest rates. My parents kinda keep me outta the loop when it comes to house finances etc. So, only today i found out whats going on.
I was a student, still paying off my loans for the past 7 to 8 years on top of other expenses. Although, now i have about 5 to 6k left in student loans. I had to move back with my parents due to what happened with the pandemic and my job. I on purpose had to avoid seeing my doctor due to my personal health issues, since i really didn't want to stress my parents. Now i am hearing about this news. My mom told me to have strong mental health to what may happen in the near future.
I just feel tapped out and really depressed. Just when i thought i had a little room to "breath". Now, this...

2023.06.08 00:53 Roddy_Piper2000 I have some serious questions for the UCP "F Trudeau" crowd

I will start by saying I am NOT a supporter of the Federal Liberal Party. Too often they have made promises during elections and then pulled the football out at the last second.
But I can't wrap my head around the absolute anger and vitriol spewed towards the PM.
Why would Trudeau want to put all Albertans out or work?
Why would he pour billions of tax dollars into a pipeline if he wants to end O&G?
Is it the entire Federal Liberal Party you believe is behind this or just Justin himself?
Is this just generational anger passed down from parents who are still upset with Pierre for something he tried 40 years ago?

2023.06.08 00:52 MiddleMine What would you do?

Hello everyone. I’ve had two ectopics, one in my left tube (got surgery to remove) and one in my right treated with MTX. I had an HSG done yesterday on my remaining tube and it’s cleathe dye spilled through. We’ve been recommended to try again naturally. I’m scared as shit. What would you do? Try again and hope for the best? Or jump into IVF? The thought of a 3rd ectopic is too much. My mental health is already suffering so much. Any opinions would be greatly appreciated 🩷

2023.06.08 00:52 lovelacebeauty Implants or veneers

Hi, I’m 27 two kids and ALWAYS suffered with my teeth and gums. With each pregnancy my teeth would get worse, and now I’ve just had 4 extractions and now my wisdom tooth has snapped in half to. The 4 I had taken out were all snapped too. I’m still experiencing sensitivity in some front teeth and a tiny bit of movement in my two front bottom teeth. It’s really taking over my life, and I’ve thought about implants for some time now. Veneers I know I have to keep my natural teeth and they’re just not worth keeping. I really need some advice from people who have had veneers or implants. I currently have two dry sockets and in agony, so this really is something I desperately want as I just want to enjoy my kids without being in constant pain with my teeth. Sorry it’s short I’m just in pain but I’d like some advice please thank you!

2023.06.08 00:52 mbayyyyy Profile Review - semi-slacker trying to identify target schools


I know I don't have a particularly impressive work experience or academic history, but I'm proud of my strong GRE score. Which range of schools would you identify as targets and reaches?
Without considering my profile at all, it would be my dream to go to Stern; in reality, it seems like that's probably unrealistic. Wondering if Anderson/Fosteetc is more the range I should be targeting.


Work Experience (7 years):

Re: work experience. It's certainly not the rocket ship trajectory that some posters here have, but I think I can craft a narrative: something around having seen many different operational sides of health tech and wanting to gain business acumen to become a well-rounded leader in that space.

2023.06.08 00:52 big_knoop Is it legal to pump water from a river in Latvia?

I have a small mobile home on the Daugava river and need to connect it to a permanent water source for tap water. There isn't a city pipeline in the area and the ground is too solid to drill into it cheaply, I have been told it would be 5k minimum. A much cheaper and simpler option for me would be to simply put a pipe with a filter into the river, connect it to a pump and use that but I'm not sure if it's legal. I know the water wouldn't be safe to drink but it would be fine for washing dishes, shower etc.

2023.06.08 00:52 mynameisnotcasper What are some things I can do or maybe buy to thank my friend for putting up with my BS?

A couple nights ago I had a bad reaction to some anti anxiety medication I tried. While it's pretty typical for me, he said it was scary and is insisting he stays by my side like constantly. It's sweet as hell, and I get it, it's just pretty normal for me to have reactions like that to medication and I should have warned him. I just was desperate to not feel so anxious and sad all the time.
Anyway, I need to make this up to him. He literally carried me to his couch and that's no easy task carrying my 160 pound fatass self. I made him breakfast this morning now that I feel better and just made him some cookies. I just want to do more. He probably feels like I'm a burden and an idiot because he told me he thought I tried to kill myself. I just feel like shit for making this rough on him. And I forgot to make his coffee that morning so I feel bad about that too. I just don't want to lose his friendship, even if he kicks me out, I still hope we can be friends.
Whenever I give gifts, I tend to go like way overboard. My budget size doesn't matter I guess. I have like ten thousand saved up I was going to use to move in a few months but I feel like maybe I should use it to thank him for putting up with me. I don't know what to do. Maybe like pay for a vacation so he can get away from me for a while? He probably thinks I'm an even bigger loser than I think I am. Maybe I should just go live in my car so I don't bother people anymore. I don't know what I'm doing anymore. Please help, guys.

2023.06.08 00:52 sahsahruh Advice: Running out of options

Seeking advice, guidance, and general support as my family faces some tough decisions.
My parents and I rescued Bueller in October 2020, he turns 3 later this month. We love so much and he brought a lot of joy to our family, but his reactivity has also brought a lot of hurt. He has now bitten my mom 3x. They've had trainer after trainer, sent him to bootcamp, installed an invisible fence, and muzzle trained him, but he's reactivity is escalating.
He's always been anxious. When he was puppy he'd refuse to walk, so started working a with a trainer. It went well, but I definitely picked up the training better than my mom. We eventually stopped working with him because Bueller was pretty well trained (we thought). Plus the training company often worked with reactive dogs and we didn't think Bueller needed that (at the time).
He continued to be hard to walk, laying down just in the middle of the street and only walking where he wanted to walk. At some point they tried clicker training, but that didn't resonate.
Then he started getting very strong (he's a Boxer mix). My parents started to have a harder time controlling him, so they worked with a new trainer. Then my parents moved and they got someone else.
At some point before they moved, Bueller jumped on a neighbor knocking her down. (She was wearing clothes that trigger him and also has a history in the neighborhood of antagonizing dogs). This where is "aggressive" behaviors really starts. Looking back now it was alway there. He'd jump on me bit me, never breaking skin, since he was little. But he was little so it was easier to control.
Anyways, in October 2022 he bit my mom (and broke skin)on a walk after seeing 2 dogs he doesn't like. He saw them lunged, and then turned on my mom. So they looked in to boot camps. Sending him away for 6 weeks, was a very hard (and expensive) decision but we hoped it we were making the right decision. It went well, the trainers liked him, said he was smart but definitely had triggers. When he came home there was strict reintroduction phase and Bueller's life in general had to be more strict. Well, my mom "broke the rules" and Bueller jumped on her. She got reprimanded by the trainer, etc. Then after two weeks my mom "broke the rules" again, and took off the property sooner than she should have. Bueller saw a triggering neighbor, lunged, and turned on my mom biting her for the 2nd time.
The trainer was a little too blunt and was furious with my parents. He heavily suggested getting rid of Bueller and said rehoming would hard. This when my parents decided to get an electric fence and muzzle train him. He's good in the house, aside from annoying barking. Bueller has never reacted at home or on the property, only on leashed walks. He took to the trainings well and has been very good boy the past few months.
This weekend he bit my mom again. This time in the backyard (though on a leash). My parents are done. And I don't blame them. We all love him so much, and he is a very sweet boy 99% of the time but they're retired and he is a lot of work. Not mention how unsafe it obviously is for them to keep him.
We do not want to put him down but recognize this may be the only option as he will be very hard to re-home. My partner and I have talked about taking him ourselves but live across the country and are moving across the country again. Plus, we're renters making it hard to find a place that will accept big dogs, especially ones with so much history. Even if we lived closer and owned a home, I'm not sure we could really give the structure he needs. Or that we would be any better. What if he bites one of us or worse someone else?
We are all so heartbroken. We love him so much, but we don't know what to do anymore. I

2023.06.08 00:52 Fan_Ecstatic My (27F) fiancé (26M) slept with someone days before sleeping with me for the first time, and lied about it until after we got engaged

Hi guys, I need some help to get my thoughts and feelings in order. My fiancé and I first met around 5 years ago. There were sparks from the first conversation, and he found me on social media to keep in contact. I had some work to do on myself, so I kept limited contact with him so that I wasn’t leading him on before I was ready to do the right thing by him.
Around a year after that, we saw each other again from across the room at a party. We snuck away from everyone and talked for hours about a lot of deep things, about how we both had been keeping an eye out for one another through that 12 months since meeting and how we both felt a real connection when we first met.
He held my hand the whole night and introduced me to heaps of his friends, drunkenly told people I was his fiancé and took photos with me that he posted to his social media. We slept together that night but didn’t have sex because I didn’t want to rush into things. I made it clear I didn’t want to have sex and he wanted to sleep beside me anyway. In the morning he asked me to go on a date with him.
We went on the date and afterwards he came to my place and again we didn’t have sex but he wanted to sleep beside me anyway. He said he was old fashioned and happy to be taking things slow.
After the first date, he was heading to another town for his sisters birthday with a bunch of friends and family. He was going for a week and wanted to take me on a second date as soon as he got back.
We messaged constantly the entire week, I understood if he wanted to ease back on messaging while he was away but he didn’t want to. He told me everyday how much he wished I was there, how amazing he thought I was, how his parents would love me and how he’d already told his parents about me.
There was never any change in the way we communicated. He got back to town, we spent some more time together and slept together the weekend after he got back. The night we slept together for the first time, I said he should put a condom on and he said “don’t you trust me”. It’s stupid, but I was on contraception and when he said the trust thing I figured he got tested before we had sex, because I had.
We became official after that. 18 months into being official I was having health problems and my doctor said I should have an STD check. He had given me chlamydia. We had a huge argument and I asked him about his sex life before me. He admitted to having unprotected sex with over 10 people, and the most recent was a month before we slept together. A lot was happening at the time and I was really upset but I did forgive him.
2 years on from this, we are engaged and had been doing really well. I felt like we were so strong for getting through things. Then we got into an argument because I found out he had lied to me about something, I told him I needed honesty and trust to marry someone and then he confessed that he had unprotected sex with a stranger in the week between our first and second date, 2 nights before sleeping in my bed again and a little under a week before insisting on having unprotected sex with me.
I feel like this has shattered the view I had of our relationship. I am in love with who he is today and I know that he regrets what he did, but I’m so upset to be finding this out so late in the piece.
I know that we weren’t official but I think I deserved to know that information when he made me sick and definitely before we planned a whole wedding.
Do I suck it up and say ‘we weren’t official, you’re being sensitive’ or am I just a massive loser if I stay?

2023.06.08 00:52 ZJP31 Lionel Messi’s Career Has Played Out Like a Movie

A humble boy from Argentina blessed with other-worldly football talent committed himself to a Catalan club with his signature written on a napkin. He would eventually debut with the first team and shock the world with his phenomenal ability.
Coached by one of the most genius managers in history and mentored by arguably the greatest midfield duo ever, Leo would go on to shine for his club which he loved so much and deliver numerous trophies and magical moments.
Eventually FC Barca would be overseen by idealists obsessed with star-power similar to the club’s bitter rivals Real Madrid. Over time, this transfer policy would erode the identity of Barca and result in extreme financial mismanagement leading to degrading team performance after expensive transfers that were not effective. Leo and the rest of the aging core would continue to carry the responsibility of leading the club to consecutive league titles in difficult times.
After an embarrassing 2018 CL exit, Leo Messi at the age of 31 would single handedly dismantle a strong Liverpool side in the first leg of their 2019 CL encounter as he promised the Camp Nou he would do everything in his power to bring the trophy home once more. Despite his best efforts, the team collapsed at Anfield and were once again embarrassed out of the competition.
Two years and three managers later, things would only get worse. More embarrassing CL ejections, pandemic financial turmoil, and consecutive defeats for the league title. Leo was frustrated, he was getting older and his body wasn’t what it once was. He tried leaving Barca but the board was ready to take the matter to court. Leo stayed because he loved his club too much to endure a legal battle.
After the appointment of a new board and president, Leo was assured his contract would be renewed and he was committed to staying under new leadership. It wasn’t until the eleventh hour that Leo was informed the club could not afford him and that he could not continue at Barca. Feeling broken and betrayed by the club he gave his life to, Leo would take his family to Paris to begin a new chapter.
Little did the Argentine know what was to come, as the football gods looked down upon him and smiled, writing his destiny of greatness into stone. Leo endured great suffering with the Argentinian national team never having won a trophy with them, and many Argentines questioned his capability and loyalty to them. The appointment of a visionary coach and a team willing to die for their captain would see Argentina to their first international trophy in 3 decades, the Copa America. This victory would set Leo’s soul free and set the stage for the greatest triumph of his career.
During his 2nd season at PSG, Leo Messi would captain Argentina to their first world cup in almost 40 years. Leo played with ice in his veins surrounded by young and energetic players and brilliant tactics which resulted in overcoming the French powerhouse. The economically turmoiled nation was celebrating, because the little boy from Rosario gave them a reason to smile again, and cemented himself as the greatest footballer of all time.
Leo’s contract at PSG ran down and he was excited at the opportunity of re-joining Barca for one last ride. Unfortunately, the club was still recovering from financial turmoil and had to go to extreme lengths to attempt to re-sign him. In the end, Barca could make no guarantees and Leo was still haunted by his previous exit from the club. He chose to join the MLS and move to Miami to ensure consistency for his children, relieving Barca financially, and securing his own financial future.
Lionel Messi has reached immortal status, and is loved endlessly by the Catalan and Argentinian people. He has achieved everything possible with both teams and has nothing left to prove.
In life, closure is never a guarantee - even for the greatest footballer of all time. Let us not dwell on how he left, but celebrate the magical moments he gave us. Nothing is forever, but his name will live on through us. The phenom, the legend, the chosen one - Lionel Andres Messi.

2023.06.08 00:52 Nathanw425 r/CrazyFuckingVideos will be joining the blackout from June 12-14 to protest the proposed API changes which will end 3rd party apps.

Hello CrazyFuckingVideos,
As you can see from the title of this post It’s not related to our normal stuff that you see posted on the sub. For those who don’t know Reddit is making some pretty big changes to their API and how 3rd party apps access their API. For context you can read more about it here. The TDLR of this post is:
· 3rd party apps are going to be very expensive to run. Ad supported tiers are will be prohibited and using Apollo as an example would cost the devs of the app $2 million per month (source). This will ultimately put 3rd party apps in the grave. If you are using a 3rd party app you will no longer be able to use it.
· The NSFW API will be getting shut down so the only way to access NSFW content is through Reddit’s app. This means even if 3rd party apps do foot the bill They only get 40% of the content. This also means that bots and moderation practices that prevent, for example someone that comments on gonewild post rom commenting on teenagers selfie posts will break.
Why this matter to you
Many mods on Reddit use 3rd party apps to moderate because the tools on Reddit’s app are worthless. Contrary to popular belief that we all live in basements, most of us mods have day jobs and a lot of moderation happens during our lunch breaks or downtime in our real lives. We moderate because we care about the community. Forcing moderators to use the official app would probably slow down moderation and force more of the work to happen on the computer. This means your post/commnts will sit in the queue unseen longer. It will also take longer for a response in modmail and harmful toxic users will be more prominent and will remain rampant longer.
In discussions with other mods, these changes will probably cripple most NSFW content on the site. It will be extremely hard to keep child sexual abuse content and non-consensual intimate media off the platform with their mod tools practices crippled by the NSFW change. A lot of work has been put into this including parts of the NSFW community paying enterprise prices or access to private libraries that are meant to detect this kind of media.
Then, on a more basic level those who are using a 3rd party app will be forced to switch to Reddit’s official app to browse content as it will be unaffordable for 3rd party apps to maintain their apps.
The Open Letter & backout
The broader moderator community have been discussing this situation and we have released an open letter here.
Part of this initiative will be a subreddit blackout. We the mod team have discussed and have come into an agreement by joining this protest and CFV will blackout for 48 hours and maybe longer.
One large factor we need to take into account is you the community. In the end our goal is to make this a healthy community. We don't want this protest to be something where Mods are beating their chests and inconveniencing everyone because we don't like what's happening. We want this to be something that the community cares enough about that we can come together and say something with our actions collectively.
There are far larger communities than ours preparing to join this movement. 500 communities have signed up for this in the last 24 hours. The moderator team wants to join that and hopes that you will join us too. If you have questions please comment and we will respond to them!!

2023.06.08 00:51 TempusFugit1834 I’ve been looking for a discontinued OP36 with sunburst blue 369 dial which I dreamed of for a long time, and then I tried this new 36mm Explorer at my local AD… I need your help!

I’ve been looking for a discontinued OP36 with sunburst blue 369 dial which I dreamed of for a long time, and then I tried this new 36mm Explorer at my local AD… I need your help!
I’ve decided to buy my very first luxury watch, and have been in awe of the blue sunburst dial of the 116000 for a few years. I found a full set one near me in very good condition from a private seller I visited this week, very nice. He himself bought it from a grey dealer in 2020, but it is from 2013 and is « only » 1K€ less than a brand new 124270…
I think I’m still stuck on the blue 369 dial because I always thought it would be my very first Rolex. But I went to try the Explorer twice now and it feels just so perfect on my wrist, its size, hands, newer movement and bracelet, the fact its a brand new watch etc. (and according to my AD I could get it in a few weeks / couple of months).
I also think the Explorer dial is more balanced, the 369 116000 is beautifully simple but too much negative space I feel. It seems « weirder » than the more balanced Air King 114200 with the same dial (but its 34mm is too small for my taste).
I think I would not be interested in the 116000 if it was not sunburst blue. I’m also looking for a watch I can wear daily and for any occasion. I can’t choose right now… Can you please give me some advice?

2023.06.08 00:51 Soggy_End_1515 How not to compare yourself when an ex is a musician on tour with a gorgeous rockstar.

I dated a guy, briefly, who I liked. He was flaky as hell, which was incredibly confusing, because people seemed to love him and think he was a great guy. “Just a free spirit”, but undoubtedly one of the worst communicators I’ve ever met combined with no follow through and empty promises. But he was funny and cute, and I was pretty heartbroken when he told me that he was unavailable for various reasons. I’ve tried to move on, but he’s a musician and the band he plays for is currently touring with another band. The lead singer is literally one of the most beautiful girls I’ve ever seen, extremely talented, and a literal rockstar. He’s liking all of her posts (literally never liked mine) and tagging her in a lot of his stories. I’ve blocked him because it’s just too painful to see. I have a background in the performing arts, but by no means am I 20 year old gorgeous rockstar. Im a late 20’s something figuring it all out. How do you not compare yourself in these situations? I’m thinking of disabling social media until the tour is over in a few days. It’s just all too fresh.

2023.06.08 00:51 BuyWonderful Stars litter the night sky.

The sound of tires crunching on gravel stops me in my tracks. I feel like a rabbit caught in the headlights, prey about to be hunted.
I pause, trying unsuccessfully to control my rapid breathing. I’ve got the shovel in one hand, sweat dripping down my forehead, staining the t-shirt that now damply stuck to my skin.
Headlights beam through the dense bushes, for now I’m still hidden, but I know that if I’m not quick, my time will be up. I contemplate leaving, but I know it’s an impossible wish. The hole has nearly been dug, and what would I do with your body?
I try again to calm my breathing, remembering that yoga you tried to teach me, but it doesn’t work and not for the first time, I wish you were here so badly it makes my bones ache.
After a moment I’m back digging, feeling stronger, determined. I made you a promise. I was going to keep it.
Stars litter the night sky by the time I’m done, and I squint at them, pretend I’m a kid again for a moment, pretend that I’m seeing a rocket shoot by, heading to the moon. I make a wish on it, a wish that I know won’t come true.
I’d gently placed the locket I’d given you for our wedding anniversary around your neck, the faded piece of paper I wrote our wedding vows on all those years ago, folded and tucked into the pocket of your jeans, just in case..well I want you to know you’ve always been so loved.
There are no flowers nearby, it’s barren, desolate and it has been for such a while now. I wondered, briefly, about what the point was when you were still here and now.. Without you, it’s been so, incredibly lonely.
I want to remain at your graveside, lay here until I also perish, or worse, although I do have one bullet left in my gun for the latter. One bullet each, for if, and only if, the worst happened.. And for you, my love, it did.
Oh had I been tempted to use it, as well. But I know you would want me to go on. Now, I am left alone, without you, in this horrible new world.
No one believed me when I said the zombie apocalypse was coming. Not even you.
I tried to make you understand.. You said I needed to take my meds. I didn’t need medication, I needed you to listen.. We could’ve fought this, together.
I had to help you, before it was too late. I couldn’t stand the idea of you being bitten, and changing. I hope you know, I did what I had to do, to save you from this..
I’m not too scared of whatever is next for me. I’ve got my last resort, after all. And truth be told, I can’t wait to see you again, my love.

Heyy yall! sorry in advance if this has already been posted. I'm new to romance novels but I'm currently obsessed. I was looking for a book about a virgin fmc who may or may not know about sex (either is fine) but is very scared of the potential pain or an uncaring partner or someting along those lines. Essentially, she terrified and she's overthought it all and then mmc swoops in comforts her through it. I'd also like recommendations where the mmc has to stop because it's too much or even one where she's nervous and he has to take over essentially, being a bit assertive with it (swoon oml).
brownie points for page numbers! books with graphics scenes are totally encouraged!

My drinking is getting pretty out of hand and I know I need to stop. My now ex-girlfriend found out I fell off the wagon and lied about it, so I'm going through a pretty rough breakup too.
I have reached out to AA and another organisation and have been to one AA meeting. I will continue to go.
Not really sure what to do. Any advice would be much appreciated. I don't want to drink ever again.
Thank you

RANT My LO is 5 months old and both me and hubs work remotely (I’ve been back to work from maternity leave after 3 months). But my in laws are both retired so they’re able to come over every weekday to help take care of him. It’s truly a blessing—but I can’t help but feel sad about my LO obviously prefers to be with grandpa. Even when I come into the room during my break to play with him, he always stares and smiles at grandpa (I’m chopped liver).. it’s to the point where grandpa goes to hide in the closet so he can pay more attention to me.. which is kind of annoying tbh. My MIL claims he’s just “taking a break” but it only happens when they notice LO is paying attention to him. Which kind of sucks— I’ve been exclusively pumping for 5 months because he couldn’t latch well (recently starting to wean for mental health and wanting more time with LO). Even after his tongue tie fixed, we fixed it too late I guess and he only wanted the bottle (in fact, fixing the tongue tie made it worse.. he used to comfort feed from me but after the laser fix, he didn’t want to latch at all..only wanted the bottle). I try to connect with him through playtime.. bath time.. feeding him, but I just can’t “beat” my in laws, who are able to take care of him from 8-4 while I work😞
I guess this is just a rant, but has anyone else dealt with this? I wish I can be my son’s world, but sadly I feel more like a part time caretaker. I feel jealous of the grandparents but at the same time so thankful they can help while both of us work. Just want to get this off my chest in a safe place away from family and see if anyone else here has experienced the same..? If you took the time to read this far, thank you for listening.

2023.06.08 00:51 Weezy_is_the_goat Thoughts on this album?

Thoughts on this album?
Over hated imo. Honestly a solid project for a 37 year old that was 20+ years in the game. The main problem with the album imo is too many filler songs but got some heat on it.
7/10 imo i can understand some 6/10 ratings but anything below that is cap.
