2023.06.02 00:12 GimmeAllTheNaps How do I get a ticket dismissed when they don’t know that I’m a #Native?
I went to Manitou Springs and got a parking ticket for out of date registration - how can I best let the authorities know that I am a #native from Texas and am therefore not subject to their vehicle registration laws? If you could draft the appeal email for me in a copy and paste format, I’m far too busy sitting in the NEW AND obviously IMPROVED Casa Bonita line to do any research or writing of my own. #ThisIsExcessiveMoistureRight?

2023.06.02 00:11 KharnTheBetrayer1997 Easily my favourite Audio Log in Bioshock 1 -
‘Mistakes’ by Andrew Ryan -
“Could I have made mistakes? One does not build cities if one is guided by doubt. But can one govern in absolute certainty? I know that my beliefs have elevated me, just as I know that the things I have rejected would have destroyed me. But the city... it is collapsing before my... have I become so convinced by my own beliefs that I have stopped seeing the truth? Perhaps. But Atlas is out there, and he aims to destroy me, and destroy my city. To question is to surrender. I will not question”
I love how this shows the inner conflict within Ryan and the realisation within him that despite all his talk of Rapture ‘coming back to life’, he knows the dream is over, that the city is collapsing. He even partly recognises that his own stubbornness and refusal to let go of his rigid ideals for the sake of the Rapture’s survival is part of what has caused the City to fall.
It’s super refreshing to have this perspective from Ryan towards the end of the game and shows he isn’t just a one dimensional character. He’s flawed and sees where he is going wrong but feels he must cling to who he has become because it’s too late to be anything else, rather than admit the truth. Absolutely love it.

2023.06.02 00:11 Train_service_mod Heading to SF for a few days in Aug.
Heading to your fine city in August and have a few questions
1) From what I understand the beaches aren’t really swimmable. Realistically, how far south would I have to drive to go somewhere to swim? I read possibly Santa Cruz? Looked like it was only a little more than an hour. I would also specifically like to swin in the pacific.
2)I know it’s cliche but, I can read what’s the best bars or clubs but, what do you all think? I’m trying to be a lil boujee on this trip and want to hit some nice places.
3)Same as number 2 kinda, just about Hotels. I’m leaning towards the Fairmont or Driscoll. Are these worth it? Something nicer? Trying to live the high life out there.
Appreciate any and all help!

2023.06.02 00:10 Snakesballz Any advice on what might be psychogenic pain?
Im havin a rough time and I wonder if anyone has experience w something similar. 3 weeks ago I tore my labrum, and only found out today after my mri came back. The tear is minor and the radiologist/my pcp expect it to fully recover with conservative treatment.
The thing is, it never even hurt besides at the time of injury. In fact, the only reason I went to get an mri done was because the shoulder in question was clicking a bit and swelling occassionally, the latter worrying my pcp. However, when my pcp read my results to me, I had a damn near panic attack. I couldnt stop thinking about it for hours, imagining my labrum torn like a piece of paper or something equally silly.
I thought "how come I never even FELT pain there before? Especially even yesterday, doing pullups and using a punching bag?" As if on cue, 20 minutes after that thought, I had this sensation as if someone quickly sliced through the back of my shoulder EXACTLY where my doctor said the tear was. I went bone white, and convinced myself yesterdays gym session somehow retore it completely half a day later spontaneously, in half a second.
Once i came home, I kept having similar smaller awful pains, like someone digging through shards of glass in my shoulder. I couldnt stop thinking about it to the point ive kinda semiconsciously completely immobilized my arm.
5 hours later, the pain is gone, and Im somewhat convinced it was psychogenic. It felt SO REAL, hurt so extremely, and behaved 'realistically'. But it doesnt make sense that I never felt it before, only to conveniently feel it right after i learned about it, and it doesnt make sense to spontaneously reinjure it from nothing, only to go back to 0 pain now. I have a history of overthinking injury/hypochondria, and recently a fucked up head because of 3 back to back injuries I sustained, one of which i legitimately reinjured.
Its almost as if after learning about the injury, my brain put up the pain as a subconscious defense not to use it further.
I dont really have a specific question tbh lol, just wanted to share with someone who wouldnt call me crazy for thinking its psychogenic or call me a reckless dumbass for going to the gym beforehand, even though i had been going for the last 3 weeks at the same capacity with no issue.

2023.06.02 00:10 FlaneerOpDeTeven Dark “fog” inside buildings
So I’m running rudy enb and elfx (no enhancer or hardcore) and whenever I’m in an interior like lets say the bannered mare, I can’t look across the room or down a hallway because there is this dark kind of “fog” even though when I walk there it seems decently lit. Is this an effect from enb? Any recommendations on how to get rid of it?

2023.06.02 00:10 ChlorineFlavored Does a pre-booked ferry ticket guarantee you a spot?
I am going to Italy next month and one leg of the trip includes a weekend in Positano. I pre-booked a round trip ferry ticket from Salerno to Positano for friday/sunday for specific times each day. I’m more concerned about the journey back from Positano to Salerno because of videos of how terribly packed the lines are at the Positano Port even these last few days, so I can’t imagine what it will be like in a month.
Question is: are these lines for people who havent purchased tickets yet and are just trying to get on the next ferry? Do I have to wait in this line even with a pre-booked pre-set time ticket or is there a separate line for that? Nervous because I have to go on this ferry then catch a train afterwards.

2023.06.02 00:09 Trick-Tree3494 Came to the point that ..
I came to the point that I blocked her in all social medias and absolutely no connection with her whatsoever. I also admit that I sometimes dream about her and get in an emotional rollercoaster again. From remembering the first time she said “I love yous” to everything we have done together in our nine years being together. I miss her a lot, but I know she has moved on already as she told me few months ago. It sucks how it is now because I am slowly forgetting the sound of her voice, what she feels like and everything else. When do I stop missing her?

I upgraded to a sprite pro direct drive and I am trying to figure out how to place the filament. I had it on the middle of the top bar but it kept stressing and breaking which resulted in clogs inside the extruder.
Should I place it on the side? and if so which direction should I route the filament? From the end of the top bar or on the inside edge of the spool holder?

2023.06.02 00:08 noora_amalie_saetre Who do you think dies at the end of "El Silencio (Muted)"?
The series has been so successful that they're apparently thinking of doing a season 2, so it's got to be Ana ? But on the other hand, I'm thinking that Sergio, distraught that he has no chance of ever having a relationship with Noa anymore, could have jumped in on his own. Or maybe Ana could have pushed him off the balcony as she realized how obsessed she'd been with him and was losing everything. I don't know. The silhouette we see from behind in the final scene looks a lot like Sergio, though. And the rest of the cast is betting on Ana falling – the only logical assumption for a season 2.

2023.06.02 00:08 Uranit_78 The Vexation of 3.7 Spiral Abyss' flawed design
| || | submitted by Uranit_78 to Genshin_Impact [link] [comments]
The day is 1st of June, 2023. We log in to our favorite game, Genshin Impact, to do our dailies, spend the day of Resin, some of us do some crazy things like walk from King Deshret's Pyramid to Mondstadt. But, since it's a first day of a month, we get to enjoy our ever so distant monthy content - the reset of the shop, new free wishes, and the reset of Spiral Abyss and...
To no surprise to anyone, the 3.7 version of Spiral Abyss is one of, if not the most aggravating one since launch despite the obnoxious cycle of last abyss rotations. We came from hating Golden Wolflord to Triple Kenki, from Triple Kenki to the Wenut - Abyss isn't spoiling us to be fair. And we have to deal with those Consecrated Beasts, our most beloved all the time.
Yet this round up is the worst not because the monsters are annoying as hell, not fully at least. 3.7 Spiral Abyss is inherently badly designed
Let's have an overview of the latest Floor 12, and analyze it's infuriating flaws. Sidenote - i am aware of the difficulty increase in Floor 11 as well, yet it's much more generous timers offset that spike for now.
We'll start from the whole 1st Half, since i want to go over half individually Floor 12-1-1
1st Wave - 1 Pyro Whopperflower, 2 Cryo Whopperflower, followed by 2 Pyro Whopperflowers and 1 Cryo Whopperflower 2nd Wave - 3 Primal Constructs, followed by 3 Primal Constructs
The starting part of the Floor 12 is the probably the second least daunting one of the 6 halfs, but it's lineup still forces a certain playstyle upon you. While the 6 flowers may be annoying with their hopping and underground digging, they do fall quickly, and their inexistant poise makes them easy to stagger and quickly eliminate.
The Doritos however are a diffirent story. If you don't blitz them down, they go poof and enter stealth, unallowing you to comfortably attack them since the auto target system in Genshin will bruteforce you into one of their "beyblades" they leave while vanished. To burst the state prematurely, you ought to trigger a Quicken reaction on them, which will also stun them for a while.
Obviously then, running a Dendro/Electro duo is rather a must, that's alright, Genshin is a gacha, the amount of characters available is there for something, we cannot just blitz through everything with just Raiden National and Kuki Hyperbloom.
The other issue is the matter of the enemy spawn. The half consists of 12 enemies total, 6 for each type. However only 3 of them can be alive at a given time - once 1 goes down, it's immediately replaced with a diffirent one, providing a steady stream of foes. It might be an non-issue if you play someone like Alhaitham/Yae, but if you play something like Nahida, you constantly need to refresh your E, which may vary from a mild inconveniance (Keqing) to a serious displeasure (Cyno)
1st Wave - Jadeplume Terrorshroom
Chicken. Our dear and beloved Chicken. Will anyone be surprised if i say this is the easiest half of all 6? I mean, it's just one singular boss, a damage sponge who may hit you, but is rather fair to play against, it doesn't zoom from one edge of the arena to the other while chain knocking you up, right?
1st Wave - Consecrated Horned Crocodile & Consecrated Fanged Beast 2nd Wave - Consecrated Horned Crocodile & Consecrated Fanged Beast
Game's public enemy nr. 1 right now, and it's easy to tell why if you fought them once.
The Beasts have around a million HP each (tankier than Azhdaha), 40% resist to every element, increased to 70% for their own (Hydro for Crocodile, Dendro for Beast), have insane knockback on their attacks, deal gargantous amounts of damage and are surprisingly fast. The Fanged Beast even has an untargetability state to it.
We already had Consecrated Beasts in the Abyss. They actually are with us for nearly the whole 2023 - first ones appeared in the 2nd Chamber of 3.4 Floor 12. Up to this point, each time they were present, they fought in 2 each half. This time is no diffirent, we will face 2 of them at the same time - but this time, twice.
After defeating the 2 beasts, you fight the exact same line-up over again. This really makes the blood boil, since they were already a problem in 2, not to say 4. While this may come off as a hyperbole, shields are mandatory
in this half, or at least something that grants resistance to interruption, such as Xingqiu's Rain Swords. You are going to be thrown around like a bag of potatoes otherwise.
Despite it's catastrophic finish, i'd wager to say that the First Half of Floor 12 is fairly designed. You might say right now "THe hell? How 4 Consecrated Beasts be fair desing? DOWNVOTE!" - hear me out. I am as pissed off about their existance as you are, but if you pick a Dendro Character for the Doritos in the 1st half, you will not be regretting that, despite the increased resistance of Chicken and Fanged Beast.
Second Half, however, is diffirent
1st Wave - 1 Cryo Abyss Mage, 1 Hydro Abyss Mage 2nd Wave - 1 Abyss Herald: Wicked Torrents, 2 Abyss Heralds: Frost Fall
This lineup is a straight up "f**k u" from Hoyoverse.
The Abyss Mages are not really an issue here - they are alone and they die fast. The Heralds are the problem.
All the issues of this half stem from one thing - their elements. Combination of Hydro and Cryo attacks will result in constant Freezes, while the wide coverage and high range of the Heralds will make it hard to avoid the Freeze. Then, given the design of Heralds, you have to deal with a chunky Hydro and Cryo Shields. This sparks a seed for a big problem of this phase's Second Half - Elemental Restrictions.
You cannot go Freeze Teams in the second half. You cannot go Nilou Bloom team (not that you'd want to, Second Half is nearly exclusively single target). Hyperbloom teams are hindered because of Cryo. Hydro Teams also do not work. That leaves us with Mono Geo, Anemo Carry, Pyro and Electro teams. Since the former elements are inert, and react in a diffirent manner, let's close up on the latter. Electro teams can certainly do this phase, but it's not worth the time, as Electro needs time to chunk both Hydro and Cryo shields, while Pyro will only slightly struggle with Hydro.
1st Wave - Thunder Manifestation
Remember that bit about Electro being able to do that? Yea, don't bother, there's a Mosquito waiting to ruin all your plans.
The whole boss honestly isn't too bad, however it is more unpleasant compared to the Shroom. It can blink, quickly make or close distance, and flies in the air, which may come as a discomfort for certain melee users. But it's attacks are telegraphed, easy to dodge.
The existance of Thunder Manifestation in the Second Chamber solidifies the Second Half as a Pyro-focused one. And as i said in the 12-1-1 analysis, it's ok. Genshin is a gacha game, it's made to test multiple diffirent strategies. There's nothing wrong with making a Pyro-centric half...
1st Wave - Iniquitous Baptist - (forget the title)
...unless it then requires other elements.
Iniquitous Baptist is a new Abyss Boss released in Version 3.6. The boss itself is actually one of the squishiests ones in the game, but it has a gimmick. Since it's an Abyss creature, it has a benefit of Elemental Shields, which are used in the battle. Shortly after the he spawns, Baptists creates 3 crystals around himself and channels, gaining approx. 270% damage reduction
and a shield. To destroy the shield, you need to destroy the crystals - which require attacks from various, diffirent elements
. After that shield dissapears, the Boss will cover himself in another elemental shield, which needs to be destroyed in a more traditional way.
Normally, it wouldn't be a problem. I think that it's a cool boss, and it's existance in Abyss doesn't frighten me. However, Floor 12's Second Half already excluded Hydro, Cryo and Electro from optimal usage by the way of Heralds and Thunder Manifestation. This creates a situation in which you need to pray that the Baptist never covers himself in a Pyro shield nor will he spawn a Pyro crystal which will be impossible to destroy. Aeonblight Drake did the similiar thing with forcing players to use bow characters against him, but following ASIMON did not punish you for having a Collei or Yelan the way that Baptist punishes you for going mono-Yoimiya for example.
Now, you can say "U can use supports to kill the shield". Sure, but that takes time. We are talking about Abyss 12, we have 3 minutes to complete BOTH halfs in order to get 3 stars. Some people want to 36 star the abyss for those extra primos, some for the personal achievement. The last chamber already has beasts, which can take up even 2 minutes in optimal scenarios, leaving 1 minute for a boss which sometimes will be impossible to tear down. This isn't even a numbers thing - You can whale 10k $ on Yoimiya's banner right now to get her C6 and a R5 Thundering Pulse to top that yet you still won't be able to damage the Baptist if he gets a Pyro shield. The design of this Abyss just doesn't make sense in any way, which sparks frustration.
I will allow myself to compare the new Abyss to the one from 2.5, when the rise of difficulty in Abyss started to become noticable
Now how is this one fairly designed? It has Wolflord!
Look, this Abyss cycle is practically neutral Elementally. The only place where usage of a certain element is either encouraged or prohibited is in 12-2-2 against the Wolflord. Indeed, that boss is a pain in the butt, taking a lot of time, and i agree that it's presence is not satisfactory, but it does not require us to use an element previous chamber disincentivized.
To summarise, the irritation that the new Abyss generates comes from it's bad design. First half shows us the issue of bloated health bars and overpowered mobs, while second half has inconsistant elemental requirements for it's enemies.

2023.06.02 00:06 ThrowRAhelpfrien My (31m) girlfriend (29f) thinks my behavior towards my best friends girlfriend is inappropriate. Is it?
TLDR: My girlfriend of 6 months feels like I treat my best friends girlfriend inappropriately, like more than a friend. I have been friends with her for years and I feel like I just treat her like all my other friends. I am dreading an ultimatum and want to know if i am really in the wrong.
English is not my first language so sorry if I make any mistakes.
I feel like a little background is necessary. So I (31m) have been best friends with "Gabe" (33m) since university. About 6 years ago he started dating "Lizzie" (26f). I was really happy for him, they are perfect for each other and their relationship is really loving and happy. Even though we met Lizzie as "Gabes girlfriend" our friend group loved her immediately and she became a friend too. We do not invite her with us just because she is Gabes girlfriend, but because everyone loves her. If they were to ever break up we would still stay friends with Lizzie too.
Throughout the years she became one of my best friends and we are very close. They live 2 buildings away from me so we meet a lot. I had a horrible period 3 years ago where I was very depressed and both her and Gabe were there for me 24/7. She hooked me up with a good therapist, they helped me clean or cook when I couldn't because of the depression. I think you get the idea...
I am not necessarily a relationship kind of guy, these past years I only had shorter or less serious relationships. But I started dating "Mia" (29f) 6 months ago and I feel like I do want this relationship to become serious. The only problem is that it turns out she has a problem with how I treat Lizzie. She freaked out on me about it on Sunday and we are not on good terms since then. Here are some specific things that she finds inappropriate:
- We were out for drinks and Lizzie likes her cocktail in a very specific way. So I ordered her drink with the instructions, but Mia finds it weird that I go out of my way to get the perfect drink for her. I apperantly do a bunch of other small gestures for her similar to this. (I am generally a thoughtful person, I always try to remember what people tell me and absolutely know/do things like this for Mia and everyone else too.)
- Our city has this program where they try to make the balconies in the city center nice and colorful, so they hand out free flowers. You can pick up 3 pots of flowers per apartment. Me and my roommate Zack are not good at plants, so I pick ours up and give them to Lizzie every year because she loves them.
-We go to places together, just the two of us. It's not like I organise things like this, but if I want to go out for drinks and only Lizzie wants to come, I will not cancel. If we are the only ones interested in a concert than we will go together. Or if we need to go shopping for an upcoming holiday/trip we will not wait until a third person is available. One of us needs a ride home? We are practically neighbours so we will pick eachother up etc. These things were never awkward for us and Gabe doesn't mind at all.
- Lizzie calls me something similar to "darling" sometimes. I can not find a good English equivalent for it, but it just means someone who is important to you. But she also uses this same nickname for basically everyone she loves.
Mia also mentioned some other small gestures that she thinks are signes that there is more between us.
In my opinion nothing I say or do to Lizzie is inappropriate, I never thought of her as more than a friend. She is an attractive girl but I don't think we have any chemistry. I just treat her like I treat my male friends. Gabe and I have a very strong and open friendship, so I feel like he would have told me long ago if my behavior towards Lizzie was not okay. Also, none of my past dates or girlfriends mentioned any of these. But maybe we've been friends for so long that I don't even realise them.
Now I am worried that Mia would give me an ultimatum that it's either her or Lizzie. I know for a fact that I would choose 6 years of friendship with the person who practically saved my life over 6 months of dating. But this is my first relationship in years that I feel like could be serious. Is there any way to prove to her that these things mean nothing? Any advice is appreciated.

So I'm building a custom hunting rifle with bighorn sr3 long action (magnum) and a .284 bartlein barrel. I was fairly set on 7mm prc till I learned more about the stw then I stumbled across some 7-300 prc threads on other forums and am now wondering if this is a good option and how this performs.
I'm obviously not super concerned with shelf availability as I'm looking at a wildcat cartridge but I am very concerned on burnout of barrels as I would like to not have to be replacing barrels. (Why I'm leaning away from (7mm stw) and didn't consider 28 nosler as well. Anybody have experience with these cartridges and recomendions. And barrel life off a 7-300 prc. As well as any additional tips from the community
The gun will be used for antelope and elk in Wyoming. And planned to see some moose hunting in SE Alaska. Some plus 1500 yards range days would be fun at my local range but not the priority.

2023.06.02 00:04 _KevinBacon Struggling with the Pressure of CS and Personal Trauma - Advice Needed
Hey everyone. This is going to be a bit of a rant, so bear with me.
Back in 2018, I started a CS program because I genuinely enjoyed coding. It was challenging, sure, but I relished in working on side projects and learning more about the subject. My school also had a mandatory co-op program, which led me to a remote job at a VR simulation start-up right around the time when the pandemic hit and my mother was diagnosed with cancer in 2020 (yes, at the same time).
The job wasn't exactly what I'd hoped for (I ended up working primarily in Unreal Engine and prototyping gameplay mechanics with blueprints, rather than traditional coding, it was required “for readability”) However, I didn't mind too much and even found myself enjoying it. But being the sole developer for a small start-up quickly became overwhelming. My boss was expecting me to learn a new program unrelated to my degree every other week. I didn’t really pick up any new technologies because I was so mentally preoccupied with my mother’s health.
Then last summer, in the midst of all this, my mother passed away. This hit me incredibly hard and left me in a deep depression. Understandably, my performance suffered, and after a while, my boss let me go. I can't say I learned much from that job due to the mental toll, and what I did learn doesn't seem to be relevant to most CS jobs I'm seeing now.
Fast forward to today, I'm working part-time as a front-end developer for a local IT company because I networked. I'm getting experience with React.JS, but I can already see the scope creep setting in. It feels like I'm in a repeat of my previous job - being relied on for major projects with minimal supervision as a new grad.
The problem is, while I'm applying to jobs constantly, I find myself bombing interviews due to a lack of relevant experience and because my coding skills have rusted over time due to juggling job applications and this part-time work. I'm just too mentally drained to find the time or energy to study or work on side projects, even when they genuinely excite me.
I've begun to question if CS is even the right path for me. It's disheartening, considering how much I used to enjoy it. I feel like I just can't catch a break and every experience I've had thus far has left me feeling burned out.
Thanks for reading my rant. If anyone has been through a similar situation or has any advice, I'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you
EDIT: Luckily for me, my favourite areas of CS include gaming and web. While I want to get better at these skills, I struggle to find the energy to do it because a lot of self doubt creeps in.

2023.06.02 00:03 whitebleacharoni Sidon Missing
Im having trouble figuring out where sidon went. He was with me the whole time until we went up the big waterfall to wellspring island. After that he was just gone. The last thing I saw from him was a text bubble from him that said that if i was leaving he’ll keep looking for zelda or whatnot. This triggered whenever i walked into the water temple the second time while looking for him. If anyone knows how to make him show up please let me know.

2023.06.02 00:03 Fepa______ Struggling on the console version of the game
I want to improve but I want to use the information that the game provides me not post my tactic here and just get the answer
My main problem is adapting to the ai adapting to me
I'm always in control during the first 45 minutes but then the next half I just get text only commentary on extended highlights and than they score without a clue as to how was I even to anticipate it
After match report isn't of much use because it just tells me we played well but still lost and that they scored from the penalty area and the scouting report on console doesn't tell me anything that I can really use or at least know how to use
YouTube didn't help
I am losing my mind :)

2023.06.02 00:02 Low_Artichoke3104 Very concerned!
I went for an early morning walk at the park today because I knew it was going to be warm as the day went on. Now that Tennessee has instituted its very fine policy regarding people behaving like degenerates in public, I’ve really been keeping my eyes open for subversive behavior. Lo and behold, what did my recently keener gaze spy? Well, I’ll tell you. There were women everywhere in drag. I sped up to catch one in particular. Her hips were swaying suggestively as I approached from the back. I could feel the venom rising up my esophagus as I got nearer. With an, ahem, I alerted her to my presence. She took a moment to spin around. When I had her attention on me, I said, in a very polite tone, “You scofflaw!” She squinted and cocked her head to the side. She looked confused, but she knew exactly what I was talking about. There she stood, feigning ignorance. The nerve of her! Can you believe this, dear reader?! She was wearing pants. Pants are clearly men’s clothes. Add that to the little flirtation in her hips for everybody to see, and we had a quickly escalating situation. Oh. Not just pants either; blue jeans, she was wearing blue jeans! I’m witty. Sometimes a little too witty, my mother (rest her soul) would say. “You don’t look like a cowboy. A lady shouldn’t be dressing like a man.” I continued, “There are laws in this state. Good, righteous laws.” With that, she took a slow step backwards; sensing that she was trying to make an escape, I took two sharp steps forward, waving my finger as I approached. Her eyes got big and she straightened up, suddenly brandishing her walker menacingly. She was shaking it to and fro, scowling at me from behind her bi-focals. One of her little tennis balls shook free from a foot on her walker. People were starting to gather around. One of them, these heathens, aggressively threw a pinecone at me. Wouldn’t you know? Women in various styles of pants. And there were children among them. Probably not even their own children. I ran. What else could I do? These thugs, these park hooligans, saw how fleet of foot I am and didn’t even attempt to follow. I returned to my car and ducked behind it to make sure I hadn’t been pursued. Satisfied that I hadn’t, I let myself in and I wept. I wept long and hard. I fear for the future of the greatest country in the history of the world.
