The American Iron Front is an anti-fascist, anti-authoritarian, pro-democracy activist coalition. We are a big-tent community for patriotic folks working to undermine the encroachment of right-wing authoritarianism in the United States, even if they don't necessarily identify with the more radical and/or revolutionary sections of the anti-fascist movement. We hope to reclaim 'patriotism' from hateful far-right nationalists, and work towards a better America where all people are free and equal.

2023.06.02 00:28 TechOwlOfficial Sell or Keep Current Car

So back in the beginning of 2022, I bought my first car ever to drive back and forth from high school. It's a 2006 Nissan Pathfinder that I found on FB marketplace for $4800 that was a little rough around the edges but was overall a good car. I bought it at 126k miles and am only nearing around 131k now. I'm currently a nearing the end of my freshman year in college and still have that car. Don't get me wrong, I love it. It may not get great gas mileage but it's spacious and has gotten me from A to B with little to no issues. The problem now is that I'm gonna start working soon as part of my schools curriculum. The reason that's a problem is because I'm out of state for college and live an hour and a half away from the tools I have at home, if anything were to happen. Essentially, if my car breaks down, I'm kinda SOL unless my parents call off work, drive all the way up, and trailer my car back home or to a mechanic. I know how to get my hands dirty with cars but by no means am I expert and plus I don't have all of the tools and knowledge that I had from when I lived at home. My parents have sprung the idea for me to get a newer car, just something newer with less miles that will get me through until I graduate in about 4 years. While that idea sounds nice, the car market right now is kinda insane, with basic sub 50k mile Hondas, Toyotas, and Hyundais going for close to 25k in my area. And getting a car over 50k miles kinda feels like putting myself in the same situation I'm in. I don't want to get into this big car payment while I'm still in school. I don't mind the idea of keeping my car but I don't know if I should risk anything happening once I start working. What do you guys think?

2023.06.02 00:25 t_tristan5 Two computers, same connections, different speeds

I recently moved my home office doubling as a gaming setup into my basement for the summer months. Initially the wifi strength wasn't strong enough so I went out and bought an xFi Pod. I've used one in the past and it worked like a charm.
When I initially set up the pod, we also switched to a newer router (xfinity XB6) which to my knowledge is capable of handling what we pay for in internet speeds. (400 MBps). I had no issues for about a week and I was able to hard wire both my gaming pc and work laptop (into my xFi pod) and had no complaint on the speeds. Memory serves right I was getting roughly 120-180 MBps.
This week I've ran into speed problems. Running Ookla speedtest with both computers I get around 40MBps (hardwired). At first I went through some turn off and back on with both the computers, xFi pod, gateway etc. No luck on improving these speeds on either computer when hardwired to this pod. Nothing changed in the last week that would cause the sudden drop in speed so I'm stuck trying to figure out what is going on.
In the middle of my testing I tried disconnecting the Pod completely and let both computers connect to my gateway. After doing a speedtest on my work laptop...200+ MBps. clearly no signal issues there. I switch to my gaming pc and run another test on wifi connected directly to my gateway...40MBps again. What could be different in these two systems that would cause this big of a signal difference?

My thoughts and ideas: When running speed test on the xfinity app, its saying my house is receiving more than what I pay for in internet speeds. Signal strength to the xFi Pod is "Good" which is the best marker they use. Could there be signal interference with the xFi Pod? I've tried moving this to three different locations in my basement and hardwiring back to my machines, I get the same (slow) speed as before.
Why on earth is my work laptop able to get such high speeds in the same location as my Pod and gaming PC? I'm aware that I should expect some loss since its a mesh system but the difference is way to large to not scratch my head.
I come to this reddit looking for advice for troubleshooting this problem. I usually don't post in forums but am getting a mean dose of FOMO for the Diablo IV release.

2023.06.02 00:25 moon_lovers143 I don't know what to do now ._.

I saw this boy for the first time around mid-October during the first semester of uni. We sat on the same 2 pm bus to a certain campus and he was sitting somewhat across from me, facing me (if that makes sense). I didn't think much about them until I started seeing them more on campus by coincidence. During my second encounter with them, I was saying goodbye to my best friend as she got on a bus to a different campus for her next class. I was considering whether to take the bus behind her to go to a different campus because I just wanted to see a different scenery. Then, as I was walking to that bus behind the bus that my friend just got on, I made eye contact with that boy because he was sitting in the front seat of the shuttle bus. When we made eye contact, I could see his eyes dilate and I knew at that moment that we both recognize each other (I was standing outside the bus and didn't get on the bus as I was feeling overwhelmed with butterflies in my stomach). The 3rd time we met by coincidence, I was once again waiting to get on a bus and coincidentally he was on that same bus. However, this time, he purposely moved to a two-seater and was sitting on the seat next to the window. Right after, he kept looking at me and smiling at me. However, too many people needed to get on the same bus as me, so I couldn't get on that bus. Since then, we would meet coincidentally on campus while I was waiting for a bus or walking to my next class. Every single time, I would notice that he would sneak a peak at me, or we just both look at each other with our eyes dilated. I'm an Aquarius and I'm introverted, so loving him from afar already made me feel overjoyed and made my day. Even tho idk anything about him including his name as I've never talked to him before, his existence was enough to make me happy and make me want to continue living in the hopes of seeing him again. After hearing the news of Astro Moonbin's death, I finally made up my mind that I'm going to bring up the courage to confess to him because a thought occurred to me. The thought was, "What if he was always smiling like Moonbin, but actually struggling with life and maybe even considering suicide?" If that were the case, I want to be someone able to help him out and prevent him from committing suicide because I really like him. Although we only had two weeks left of uni as finals week was coming up, during the last week of classes, I finally bit the bullet and confessed my feelings to him. I said, "I have something that I've been meaning to say to you for a long time. This may be cringy but bear with me for a moment," I took a deep breath in, and with my voice extremely trembling while trying not to crack my voice or cry in the process, I told him "I like your smile and I think you're really cute. l hope you do well with your finals, I hope you have a great summer break, and I just hope life goes well for you in general." After that confession, we had some small talk, I asked him for his Instagram, and a few hours later he followed me back. A few days after I confessed, I decided to dm him on Instagram about how I wanted to get to know him better. He replied back to me in a week or two telling me he was not ready to get to know me because he was struggling with his mental health and needed a break from social media. However, he did wish that I have a good summer and do well on my finals. I liked his reply and I replied by telling him I'm glad he was taking the time to take care of his mental health, I understand him socially isolating himself because I've done that several times in my life before. I sent him the "sending a virtual hug" gif, and two days later he liked my reply and sent a simple sentence reply thanking me for my support and the smiley face with tear emoji. I sent him a simple sentence back saying "that's the least I can do" and that's the end of our interaction.
It has been a month and now I'm starting to overthink. I legit don't know what to do now. I know there are still 2-3 months of summer left, but when the summer ends, should I dm him to ask how his summer went/if he feels better, and if he could send me his schedule for the upcoming fall semester? What if I bump into him again coincidentally during the upcoming fall semester? Should I say hi to him? Should I wait for him to reach out to me? Should I let this go? But for some reason, I just can't let this go and I have a feeling that there is still hope deep down inside my heart. I've had a few crushes in the past, but I've never had one where deep down in my heart I can't let them go. None of my past crushes would smile at me on their own if we bumped into each other (I never talked to them before too). The many coincidental encounters made me wonder if they are my destiny/fate/soulmate because as the saying goes "if you meet someone a second time that's a coincidence, but a third time is fate/destiny." I know I may be delusional about this, but I can't stop thinking about them. Legit I don't mind being friends with him and if I'm not the one. If they're in a genuine relationship where that other person makes them smile, even if it's not me, I would genuinely be happy for them (I mean I would be a little hurt that I can't be the one, but still overall happy for them). I just want to be someone that's part of their life that can make them smile even if that means being just friends. Legit, I'm willing to risk my all just to see them genuinely happy. Please help a girl/hopeless romantic out! T-T

i told my friend about it and we talked about it then i decided to tell my best friend who also struggles with body issues. recently i've just barely been eating. i skip breakfast i skip lunch and i only eat a little at dinner. if i eat a lot i make myself throw up. i hate myself. i feel guilty everytime cause i feel like im not appreciating my body. my brain is completely fucked. i was sh sober for a month and a relapsed again today.
I'm starting school again next monday and it's stressing me and out so fucking much. i don't know what to do. i was doing so well but everytime i relapse for like a month after everytime i'm the slightest bit stressed i'll sh. i feel sick to my stomach i feel like im letting everyone in my life down. i'm a disappointment to my parents my friends i'm a fucking disappointment to myself and i just want it to end.

2023.06.02 00:24 TheSmallCheezeitMan My Friend makes me pay for everything!!!

I have never made a post, and this is my first one ever. But I am having some problems with my best homie. I just want advice from random people on the internet :). This is going to be long so If you read it I want to say Thank You. (also I know this is a huge info dump post) (Also the title is only part of the problem) So to start I met him in middle school. We are both in high school now. We have always been the dynamic duo and always had fun together.Im very extroverted when it comes to people. So I love to talk to him and hang with him any chance I get.But Sometimes he will flip for no reason at random times. Just suddenly get mad at me and tell me I am annoying or would just ignore me. Sometimes he would straight up hit me. Now I am a very big guy. So whatever he did never really hurt, but it hurt my feelings a little. I didn't mind .But after his episode, no matter how long it lasted, he would go back to being my best chum. I assume he does that when something bad happens and he doesn't want to tell me what happened. So he kinda acts out because I cant read his mind and know what he is feeling and shut up.He has done that for a while. But as I said, It didn't bother me that much because I could under stand it. The only time it did bother me was when he did that so bad that I stopped being friends with him for a few months. But we both made up and continued being best buddies after. Long story short, he blamed me for something I could not control and said I ruined everything. (I know that is vague but I don't want him finding this)Now back to the main stuff. He is older than me. So when he could start to drive, I could not. So now we can hang out after school and do things. Since we have met up til this point we have only hung out once outside of school. Side note: a little before he could drive he got a gf. So now we add her into this.In school we were fine. We were the best pals you can ever imagine. Except the obvious problem mentioned before. He would only really act out like that every once in a while tho. But now that he had a gf... I was like once every 2-ish days. Lasting almost an entire school day. I knew he wasn't mad at me but still, it sucked.Thats so far is only one small of the things he does that makes me mad. Here comes the rest.He constantly has problems with his gf and when I try to help I get blamed for stuff. On top of me trying to help their relationship, he kinda flirts with other girls, so idk if I should tell his girl or not.So back to him driving. He is the only one that can out of my friends. So I am the third wheel to him and his gf when we go out. I don't mind. Until they remind me that i'm alone. Also I pay for everything when we go out. Everything. No matter where. That makes me the most mad. They say it is because i'm the only one that works. I don't mind giving him gas money because as I said he drives me around. But he can't even pay for his gf. I have too. When I invite him out he always asks if i'm paying. With no thanks.I know it sounds like they are using me. But him and his gf see me as a some what close friends. His gf might be using me. But he is not smart enough nor thinks like that, to be able to use me. I think he does it without thinking. Fr Trust me on that.That makes me the most mad. ready for more.Whenever we are out I feel ignored until they need something. He even has tried to skip out on driving me back home.When he comes over to my house we have fun, until his gf ruins it by making sure we aren't out with other girls or something. I mean I read manga and comics. My only other hobbies are lifting weights and playing sports. Does she really think I get any girls? Let alone hang out with them. But she basically ruins out hang out time by texting him non stop and calling him. Making him get mad at me for interupting him while he is talking to her.Also I have a cool thing at my house (keeping it vague). They constantly ask to come over to use it and then proceed to ignore me. At my own place.The worst part is now he has "ghosted" me over freaking summer. What I mean by that is that he wont't hang with me at all! Not matter If I pay or invite him to something super cool. It is always met with a "idk" or "maybe" or "I can't". What?!The point I am making is that he basically controls our friendship. We can only do stuff he wants or what is on his time.I pride myself in being kind and nice to everyone. It was how I was taught to live. Still excluding him. Everyone around me treats me like crap. (except a few seniors on my sports team.) I constatly help others even when they don't ask me to directly. (I have way to many stories of helping people for no reason) I am so kind and cool and this... this is what I get. I am so much taller and stronger than everyone else. I could be the mean one if I wanted. And nobody could stop me.But then I remember why I should not be mean. And remember my favorite fiction characters. Like Superman, Batman, Spiderman etc. And remember how they have troubles, but are still the good guys. I want to be like them.Thankfully the seniors on my sports team have been making the team realize they should respect me more. And I actually have made a new friend recently. He is super cool but quiet. And he hardly talks to anyone. But I can understand him and kinda relate to him. He is kind. I'm planning on hanging with him more.But it sucks that no matter how much work I put in. In the end. My best friend doesn't really like me all that much. Even though when we hangout it is a blast. And we make jokes and have so much fun we can't handle it. I guess he has other priorities.I feel like it is all my fault. But deep down I know something. I am a kind, strong, nice man. That will do anything for my true friends. While he just isn't. Even if I get no thanks for what I do. I realize why I help others. Because it is the right thing to do. And I will never stop being kind. Even when so many others hate me and put me down.This is just apart of my journey. I have to accept it. I don't even know why I am posting this. Haha.

2023.06.02 00:24 TheGamingTurret Who are you gonna pull for your freebie? (If you haven't yet)

My order of priority is Gepard > Bailu > Welt in that order.
'But welt is so good tho' I will be pulling for both Luocha and Yukon. So my imaginary unit needs will be fulfilled either one I use. Don't get me wrong, Welt sounds amazing, but I could always pull him on the standard banner later. Where Yukon and Luocha are limited at this time. (and yes I'm aware you get a free Yukon in 1.2)
'Bailu is amazing' I 100% agree, but if I pull Luocha I won't 'need' Bailu as much, although I would like to have her. Again, same thing as Welt, I could easily pull her on my way to 300.
'Why Gepard when you get march for Free?' Gepard negates the need for a healer on the team entirely, and does everything March does but better. which allows for more varied team comps. Plus I mean he's one of the male units I actually like. He's a kinda derpy (not in the bad way) knight with a heart of gold. I feel similarly about Luocha, I like his character and his design, also funny that he beats people to death with an actual coffin.

2023.06.02 00:23 plantsarenotfood boyfriend (30m) is not thoughtful and it's making me (31f) rethink things

Me (31f) and my boyfriend (30m) have been together for coming up to a year now. For my entire career I have been working hard towards one goal, which I achieved last week. Its a really hard goal, and he knows how much work I put into it and how much it means to me. I was happy tears crying in public happy, and though he has been really lovely via message, it's kind of been a non-event in all other ways.
I feel super disappointed and let down. He's so good in so many other ways, and I honestly adore him, but this is really upsetting me. I dont want to have to tell him that I want him to care more, because then it will feel really forced, but at the same time it is really getting me down. This is a bit of a theme - he isn't always great at being thoughtful. He has glimmers sometimes, but mostly I have to ask him to do nice things for me (which he would then do without complaint). I think this kind of feels like a final straw, like the other bits of not being thoughtful were fine, but this means so much to me and for him to barely acknowledge it hurts a lot.
I cant work out if I'm being super petty. It makes me feel a bit like he doesn't care at all but I feel like I'm blowing it up into a huge thing. I don't even expect much, I'm not a fancy person, just some real acknowledgement of how incredible the achievement is would be great. I'm not sure whether it's worth raising it or if I should just move on? How can I raise it with him?
TLDR: my boyfriend hasn't really acknowledged something really important to me and its upsetting me.

2023.06.02 00:22 DigitalInk24 Advice on dealing with extremely antisocial roommates?

There is this guy, not a bad person, of course. But, I can not help but feel frustrated every once in a while... To be noted, we're basically 5 guys living in 1 room and sharing a bathroom and a tiny "kitchen area"( shittiest college dorm possible, ik), so there has to be at least the bare minimum of social interaction to maintain some level of cooperation. But he... well, he just refuses to interact, with little to no exception. He doesn't ask others if the bathroom is free when we're all getting ready in the morning, he just rushes to it for a shower or whatever avoiding eye contact, even if he's got classes in 2h but the rest of us are already late or have to leave but just need a quick face washing a tooth brushing. He stays up till extremely late, like 5AM sometimes. He's always wearing his headphones, and, doesn't matter if it's like 2AM, cause he's gonna casually turn on the light in the kitchen area( it's right next to my bed, lol) and rummage through his stuff( maybe drop something too, he's quite clumsy tbh). Also, when he's exiting the room or entering, it's like a jump scare. No footstep sounds, no carefully opening the door, it's like he grabs the doorknob and instantly slams it open( it scares everyone, lol). You also can't ask him of anything, cause he's straight up gonna ignore you if you try to grab his attention. Like there is this recent thing where our bathroom had some nasty pipe leaking problem, so I reported it to the administration to fix it, but the thing is, the whole place was a mess( and I really mean it, it's a cramped room full of guys after all). So, not to look like some hobos from the jungle, I suggested the others to at least sweep an area of their choice and mop it. Well, all but 2 people didn't contribute. One who had classes and was already late( totally understandable, don't blame him) and this antisocial guy( who could have but pretended like I didn't say a word). He also doesn't respond to any messages, he just gives u the "seen". Like the other day when me and this other roommate had to go out look for a new led tube for the bathroom and texted everybody about it so that they're okay with splitting the costs( broke ass students, lol), They all replied except this antisocial guy, who just left me in "seen"... He still hasn't contributed to the costs :/ I didn't get to see him since yesterday later in the day when he came back very briefly and left. It's a weird situation to be honest, cause at first when I met this guy I thought he was a cool guy, but now it's like he gave up on even trying to do the bare minimum of human interaction with me or with anybody.

2023.06.02 00:21 TakenByAThrowaway 8 Looking for team-based first person shooters (set in the 20th century) with competent AI and vehicular combat.

I'd like to get a game that has an actually viable, replayable singleplayer mode that I can play by myself, without the need for an internet connection, and at my leisure, especially as I have less time to play any games these days.
By competent AI, I mean bots with a sense of self-preservation and awareness of their surroundings: taking cover, avoiding explosives like grenades, trying to avoid using explosives when teammates are in the immediate vicinity, not running over teammates, the usual.
In addition to this, the AI must also have some common sense, i.e. knowing what weapons to use against what objects (say, anti-tank guns or SPGs against tanks and other AFVs instead of grenades, flak guns or MANPADs against aircraft instead of small arms etc.) and resorting to backup with such weapons if they don't have them instead of engaging in futile attempts against targets that they only stand a chance against due to sheer incompetence, , the ability to check for threats outside their immediate vision, and using naval craft effectively, such as positioning aircraft carriers and actually taking into consideration the aircraft aboard them; this particular point extends to a general awareness of crew members / passengers aboard a vehicle in general, any multi-crewed vehicle, really. Tanks, ships, planes (paratroopers, for example) etc. Also, having the ability to aim ballistic weapons properly. These are only examples within a range of features, some of which I may have forgotten to include.
I would also like to see some sort of tactical sense, say, gunning for thinly guarded areas, utilising combined arms in attacks, keeping up the momentum of attacks even as the enemy grows weaker, counter-battery fire and/or bombing runs against long-range artillery, following objectives, and so on.
High moddability (maps, models, textures, scripts, sounds etc.) would be preferable, though not a strict requirement of mine, and it would be great for 256v256, or at least 128v128, matches to be a possibility in the game.
Despite the title of my post, I would still be open to trying any games set in an earlier or later time period, but they must have some aspect of warfare that seems to be relatively unexplored in this genre, such as naval warfare (like in this video).
Ravenfield has been suggested to me previously, but that game's AI appears to be middling if not terrible, and largely unmoddable. The game aims to capture the feel of older first-person shooters like Battlefield 1942, which I played just recently, and it may have succeeded in this goal. I want more, however.
In essence, I am looking for a game similar to the one in that video, but with some semi-adequate AI, at minimum.

After reuniting with Gwen Stacy, Brooklyn’s full-time, friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is catapulted across the Multiverse, where he encounters the Spider Society, a team of Spider-People charged with protecting the Multiverse’s very existence. But when the heroes clash on how to handle a new threat, Miles finds himself pitted against the other Spiders and must set out on his own to save those he loves most. Anyone can wear the mask – it’s how you wear it that makes you a hero.
After a grueling five-year-long wait, Marvel fans everywhere will finally be able to return to the animated multiverse with Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. The upcoming sequel's predecessor requires no explanation, as Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse not only ensnared audiences and critics alike but also caught a prestigious Oscar win with a Best Animated Feature award. With "New York's one and only Spider-Man," Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), now becoming a household name, fans of the first film eagerly awaited the day they could see young Miles swing into the Spider-Verse again.
Thankfully, the wait is almost finally over, as Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will return to screens soon. This time Miles will not only be reunited with Gwen Stacey (Hailee Steinfeld) and Peter B. Parker (Jake Johnson) but he'll also be introduced to an entire multiversal society of Spider-people created and led by a particularly pessimistic variant of Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac). Though some of the other variants in this secretive organization view Miles as a nuisance more than anything else, they'll have to learn to put those apprehensions aside if they hope to save the multiverse from an all-new terrifying threat. As the release date for the sequel to one of the most celebrated Spider-Man films ever made crawls closer and closer, here is precisely where and how you can watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse when it premieres this Summer.

You won’t be waiting long, as Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is finally coming out in 2023, a full five years later. It’s been a long wait but by all indications the film is going to be a blast for fans of comic book movies, Miles Morales’ version of Spider-Man, and this new animated franchise featuring the iconic webslinger.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is one of the most highly anticipated animated superhero films of 2023. Serving as a sequel to the critically acclaimed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018), this upcoming installment promises to continue the exhilarating adventures of the Spider-Verse. Fans from all around the globe are eagerly awaiting its release. In this article, we will provide you with all the essential information on the film's release date and how to watch it online from any country, ensuring you don't miss out on this exciting cinematic experience.
This is especially true for many superhero films, which are often tied directly to specific streaming services. Disney+ and HBO Max - now rebranded as MAX - often house the new streaming releases for the MCU and DCU respectively, usually releasing anywhere between 1–3 months after theatrical release. However, with a film like Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, the situation is slightly different given Sony's lack of a dedicated streaming service, here's where to watch and stream Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse online.
When Is the Release Date for Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse?
When Is the Release Date for Spider-Man: Across thMiles, Gwen, Peter, and several dozen other Spider-people will be swinging into action when Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse premieres on Friday, June 2nd, 2023. This almost undoubtedly gives Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 and The Flash a run for their money as the biggest superhero movie event of the Summer. Spider-Verse?
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse had its world premiere at the Regency Village Theatre on May 30, 2023, and is scheduled for theatrical release in the United States on June 2, delayed from an initial October 2022 date because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Where To Watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Online:
As of now, the only way to watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is to head out to a movie theater when it premieres on June 2, 2023. You can find a local showing on Fandango.
Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait for it to become available to rent or purchase on digital platforms like Amazon, Vudu, YouTube or Apple, or become available to stream on Netflix.
How to Watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse
There's been no official announcement regarding Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse's streaming release date, though we know it will eventually be released on Netflix, rather than Disney+ or HBO Max.
In terms of which of the streaming giants Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be released on, Netflix will house the film upon its streaming debut. While again, Sony does not have its own dedicated streaming service, a deal was struck in 2021 between the studio and Netflix. The deal, stating that Netflix would stream Sony's films after theatrical release, was penned for 5 years meaning Across the Spider-Verse is part of the arrangement.
While Sony's Spider-Man content is also streaming on Disney+, due to the collaborations between Sony and Marvel Studios in recent years, Across the Spider-Verse will be a Netflix release. While the deal struck between Marvel Studios and Sony may extend to this film, Disney+ is only allowed to begin streaming Sony's Spider-Man releases upon their release on Netflix. As a result, Netflix will be the first streaming service that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be available on after its theatrical release.
Because it’s airing on FX, you can of course fire up Into the Spider-Verse via FX Now. But in addition, the animated flick is streaming on both fubo (which offers a free trial and has cord-cutting plans starting at $74.99/month; sign up here) and DirecTV (which also offers a free trial and has cord-cutting plans starting at $64.99/month.
Is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse in Theaters?
Not only was Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse the subject of rave reviews, but it also pulled in some gargantuan levels of cash at the international box office, with a final tally that quadrupled the film's ninety-million dollar budget. With incredible success like that, it's only natural that Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse would also be taking advantage of a theatrical release. That is the case, as the upcoming film will be exclusively available in theaters when it premieres on June 2nd, 2023.
When Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Be on Streaming?
The Spider-Man franchise is in a pretty interesting place regarding streaming. The various films of Sony's franchise have typically been scattered across multiple services. That said, following a historic deal between Sony and Disney, the many stories of Peter Parker and beyond are now available on Disney+. This includes the original Sam Raimi trilogy, the first Amazing Spider-Man film, and, starting mid-May, Spider-Man: Homecoming and Venom. Notably absent from the Disney-streaming platform so far are The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Spider-Man: Far From Home, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Spider-Man: No Way Home, Morbius, and most significant of all, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
Some of the films are not currently available on the service because Sony has pre-existing partnerships with Starz, as that's where most of the absent films are available to stream. That is except for Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which is instead only streaming on Fubo TV and FX Now.
If Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse comes to Disney+ before Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse's theatrical run concludes, that would make the House of Mouse's service a likely contender for a streaming release. However, Sony has also historically partnered with Netflix for streaming releases. Up until recently, that's where Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was available to stream, and Sony still brings their other big releases to the service, like Bullet Train and The Woman King.
When will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse be streaming on Netflix?
Sony Animation’s big new Spider-Man movie is about to hit theaters and will be headed to Netflix (at least in the United States) later this year. For a prediction as to when and a bit more about the new movie, here’s what you need to know.
As we covered in 2021, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be headed to Netflix as the service gets both Sony’s animation and live-action content via a first window deal struck in April 2021.
The deal stipulates that all Sony theatrical movies come to Netflix in the first window, which at a minimum, is 120 days after its theatrical release date. If it arrives exactly 120 days after, it’ll be streaming from September 30th, 2023.
With that said, given how big this movie is, we may see it release a few weeks after the fact. Either way, we expect the movie to be available between late September and November 2023.
Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Be Streaming On Netflix?
Yes, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is coming to Netflix approximately in December 2023.
In 2021, Sony and Netflix signed a five-year deal that gave the latter exclusive first-pay-window U.S. streaming rights for Sony Pictures titles after their theatrical and home entertainment windows. Fans can expect to watch Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on Netflix six months after the film’s theatrical release, thus in December 2023. The date seems reasonable considering that Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse dropped on Netflix on June 26, 2019, six months after its U.S. release on December 14, 2018. The pay-one window usually begins about nine months after a film’s theatrical release, but it might start earlier in particular cases.
Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Be On HBO Max?
No, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will not be on HBO Max since it’s not a Universal Pictures movie. Last year, the company released its films in theaters and on the streamer on the same day. However, they now allow a 45-day window between the theatrical release and the streaming release.
Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Be Streaming On Disney+?
Yes, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is also coming to Disney Plus approximately in 2025.
Once the pay-one window runs its time and Netflix’s exclusive rights expire, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will be available on Disney Plus. The pay-one window might last as long as 18 months, which means it will be a while before Disney Plus subscribers can watch the much-anticipated sequel. Unlike in other countries, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse isn’t yet available on the Disney-owned streamer in the U.S.
American fans will have to wait until 2024 to watch Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse and at least until 2025 for its sequel. We will update this post once there is an official Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Disney Plus release date.
Is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Available On Hulu?
Viewers are saying that they want to view the new Marvel's animation movie Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. It will be exclusive to the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.

You can also rent or buy the movie on iTunes or Google Play. You can also watch it on-demand or on a streaming app available on your TV or streaming device if you have cable.
When Will Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Be on DVD and Blu-ray?
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse will likely be coming to DVD and Blu-ray around the same time as the streaming release. With theatrical films, on average, coming to streaming sooner than ever (usually ninety days after theatrical release), we'll likely see Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse get a DVD, and Blu-ray release no later than Fall 2023.
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse Cast and Characters
Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse was written by Dave Callaham, Phil Lord and Chris Miller and directed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Kemp Powers and Justin K. Thompson. It stars the following actors:

Luna Lauren Vélez as Rio Morales
Jake Johnson as Peter B. Parker / Spider-Man

What is Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse About?
Returning with many of your favorite characters, including Gwen Stacy/Spider-Woman, Peter B. ParkeSpider-Man, and of course Miles Morales as our primary Spider-Man, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is set one year after the events of the previous film. Miles (Shameik Moore) is coming into his own as Spider-Man when he is unexpectedly approached by Spider-Gwen (Hailee Steinfeld) with an extraordinary opportunity. Does Miles want to help a team of Spider-People, led by Spider-Man 2099 (Oscar Isaac) protect the multiverse from the terrifying threat of a man known as The Spot (Jason Schwartzman)?
Obviously, Miles is going to say yes, setting him up for an adventure that will expand this movie’s concept of the multiverse in every possible way. Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse promises tons of new characters and worlds, without losing sight of what people have come to love about this particular Spider-franchise.
Miles Morales has become a massively popular Spider-Man, and you can be certain he’ll be at the center of Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse’s chaotic blend of action, comedy, comic book aesthetics, and large-scale science fiction. It seems more likely than not that Across the Spider-Verse will be the biggest animated release of 2023.

2023.06.02 00:20 _bark_vader_ How do I stop making more mistakes in my relationship?

I (20F) come from a troubled past. I've always had a very strained relationship with my family, and I never really grew up with any sort of support system other than from the 2 relationships I've had in the past. Both were extremely toxic, and over the course of both of these (one lasting 3 months, one lasting 3 years) I myself adopted toxic habits. I always thought I would end up alone after these so I gave up on relationships, until I met my current partner (19M).
It's started perfect. We've never had a fight like I'm used to in the past, rather one of us making a mistake and we talk about it. We've been together for around 6 months now and he could not be any more of what I've always wanted out of someone. It's always felt like once I met him that I met my other half. However, I've been so used to being in toxic environments with so many people that I didn't even realize how many I've adopted myself. I've found myself to become incredibly anxious all the time that this façade he has will just suddenly disappear one day and his 'true' self will show, but it never happens. Even when I'm being clingy and ask the same questions over and over (Ex. Do you love me? Am I boring you? You enjoy listening to me right?) he still answers them and is honest with me every time, even if the truth hurts. It's a reason why I love him so much, since his truths always help me be serious with my mistakes so I can work to correct them.
I made a horrible mistake last night, which is the pinnacle of all the mistakes I'm now realizing are slowly going to kill this relationship. I struggle with drinking occasionally, as it is a bloodline thing in my family. I went a full month without drinking, before my mom offered some wine to celebrate an achievement for my brother. It didn't taste like wine, and it hit me hard like something strong such as whisky. That night in a mutual group chat we are in I ranted about my love for him. The next night she offered to finish the bottle with me and I caved, since the happy lovey feeling of the previous night made me want to again. This time I had much more, and ended up calling my boyfriend. I do not remember this night at all, however he told me that it began sweet before it became extremely bad. I was clingy, asking extremely personal questions and pressuring him for answers. The next morning, this morning, I told him how I don't remember the previous night. We texted and he told me every single detail of that night, and I felt sick. My insecurities were projected tenfold, when sober they're not nearly as strong. I've always been extremely insecure but with how intoxicated I was, it was a whole other level. We talked and I apologized, and he was extremely forgiving, especially considering how I was not my normal self. He said that, however, the next time I drink he would not pick up.
I don't know what to do from here. I apologized several times but even I have the common sense to know they mean nothing since this isn't the first time that this has happened. I should have realized it previous times, but I just thought that acknowledging the problem was equivalent to doing something about it, when it very much is not. I've looked into counseling resources at our college so I can learn to properly process my anxiety and insecurities. He worded the questions I asked as if I was just needing answers to boost my ego, and I feel so terrible for making him feel that way, that those questions were anything outside of pure insecurity and anxiety. I feel like I text him enough already, being clingy, but I do not know what else I can do from here. I am soon starting a job so I can look into therapy to process my emotions properly so I can be my best version for him, and to make this last as long as it can. I never thought that I would end up being the problem and now that it's seriously hit me, I want to fix this as soon as possible. I'm terrified that this will only get worse and I will negatively impact his mental health, if I haven't already. I plan on completely cutting out drinking, since previously I only said I would stop drinking alone and only do it socially, however even socially I overdo it. I am not dependent on it whatsoever other than the occasional anxious night, however I need to learn healthy ways to overcome my anxiety without the need of it.
Is there anything else I can do?

2023.06.02 00:20 MathematicianDue231 My Meaning Amongst Life.

This week has been equal to a year, the fluctuation of emotions year-round. I was talking to this girl, I would write her poems and treated her the way I would treat my mom. I haven't had a relationship since years ago, so I've forgotten what it means to be physically/mentally loved. Although my family says they do, it feels forced upon oblivion. Anyways, this girl told me she wanted to stop talking because she was overwhelmed, but the more I realized what that meant, the more of a downward spiral I went into. I was very very understanding to her, but she just treated me like a friend, and I could not see her that way. For she and I would've rocked the world. And to top it off, my very mother told me she doesn't know what she is proud of me for, but she knows what she is proud in herself for. I have felt ever so meaningless this week, and I am all for it. I want to feel that connection with someone, I want that comfort of someone to lean to. I have a therapist and I am taking anti-depressants, but I feel a little worse than I did before. I know my purpose on this earth is to make music and to write my thoughts, but I feel as if I did that. Not with music, but with writing. I love writing poetry. It is my only form of expression deep from within. And to share with people isn't something I do everyday. Only a select few have seen my writing. As I am writing this, my room feels empty, with nothing but wall. Of meaningless frames and items. Like a prison. Just the other day, I felt a sense of manic depression. I lied in bed with my head spinning 200 mph, and a feeling of undoing, along with doing. I was stuck to every fiber to my bed, like velcro. Since then, my mood has been extremely down. I resort to coming to here because I have no one else. But, I don't want to be a part of the statistic of young men in any developed country, but it sure is looking peaceful. I just want this loneliness to be made into connectedness. Hopefully, I can receive the help I desperately crave.

2023.06.02 00:20 Academic_Tie_2512 She tried to kill me. she was supposed to kill me.

Foresight: late 20’s male, USA; prior military
The dream is vivid and only slightly lucid ( it still has a script apparently and it goes based on my reactions it seems)
Setting : European style church
Im dressed in ceremonial dress attire aswell as my dream father
I hear the priest say “I don’t want him in the ceremony.”
As im walking behind my dream father he gestures to stay while walking through the door.
The ceremony ( of which I have no idea what for, whom, etc )
In attendance is clergy and seemingly members of military uniforms unknown. Their uniforms resemble dated tunics and golden shoulder pads.
Military members and other civilians start slaughtering the church members and clergy as the “Ceremony begins”
(in my mind) “this is the beginning of genocide”
I don’t run I don’t panic I just watch. After a few seconds I just sit down in a pew trying to understand the meaning of this dream.
I look to my right and there is this young woman (mid 20’s) she had blonde hair and she was beautiful. Her eyes were an amazing silver. We lock eyes and she stabs me in the right shoulder with an ice pick. I don’t react. I don’t feel it. We stay eyes locked. ( I AM MEZMORIZED BY HER EYES)
She says, “your just gonna watch that. And not expect this to happen?”
she takes it out and slashes in between my groin and abdomen. She gets up as our eyes are locked still
I say “ oh no, I understand” ( I still don’t react. I don’t move.) her eyes go from confident and filled with purpose. To confusion and sadness as she slowly walks away.
(BLACKOUT) - I awake in real life ( in my mind ) “that cant be it. I want back in that dream” (im successful)
Now im in the basement of the church. I hear people being finished and begging for their life.
(in my mind) “I want to die in the sunlight, this doesn’t seem it”
I start fumbling and running into a catacomb like underground until I reach the end and im somewhat blinded by sunlight. I look towards it. Its her. And three of her “friends” (all brunettes and beautiful and never engaging vocally with me)
She say’s “come on your bleeding out, lets go.” – I follow
Now we are outside in a new setting ( somewhat European and middle eastern ; can be compared to up and coming Bahrain in the mid 2010’s ; brand new tall white beautiful walls, buildings growing with scaffolding and the only pollution is concrete dust and small construction debris)
We are all walking towards a hotel ( I’m seemingly healed ) local law enforcement approaches us and he asks the blonde. “ where are yall going? Who is this?”
I look at her. She looks back. Then speaks to the officer “ this is -------- “( a name I can not pronounce or remember, it had an European and middle eastern feel to it )
The officer is distracted by one of her friends. The blonde hands me a bill.
“give this to him, he’ll go away”. – I grab it.
I look at it. It has a 3 and 1\2 numeral. And looks like a combination of a Euro and a Dinar. No visible governmental figure. – he grabs it and says “thank you sir” and goes about his day.
We get to the hotel. All of sudden her friends have a man and they’re pushing him past the mud room. ( first entrance to take off shoes and etc, its essentially a front porch but enclosed )
I close to the door to mudroom in assistance and they are stomping and beating this man senseless.
Im shaking my head up and down and (in my mind) “these girls are pretty fuckin’ awesome”
I hear the blonde in the mudroom she’s audibly struggling and making noise and I hear herself slam herself against the wall a couple times in hesitation. Im confused thinking shes being attacked but its just her in there. She stabbed herself in the side 2 to 3 times with the help of the wall. ( I don’t think she had the heart to just straight up do it, she had to fall into the wall and force herself into it. )
I open the door quick and inquisitive; she perks up and try’s to hide what she just did. thinking a smile will make the cause for concern go away.
BLACKOUT ( A FUCKIN GAIN I awake. ---- as before i know there is still more. ) I fall back asleep.
Now were walking down the street all of us. Twilight is beginning . the brunettes are in front. im in the middle and the blonde is behind me a couple feet apart. The brunettes stop in their tracks with maps trying to assess where to go. so they stop. I stop just short of them. The blonde bumps into me because she didn’t notice. I can see her. Her eyes still amazingly silver but they’re filled with tears and pain, she’s wincing.
I approach and say. “breathe ( gesturing nose first and out the mouth) you need to breathe. Do it with me” (still gesturing) and the brunettes surround the blonde and I, in a hugging circle, and they’re helping to get her breathing under control. She’s got it down and it has seemed to work.
Then the blonde comes in to me and kisses me. THE most passionate kiss I have ever had (topping real life experiences) this lasted about 10-15 seconds.
I Awake. And I cant go back and see the rest of this out because I awoke 7 minutes before my alarm.
It pains me that I cant. I just don’t understand any of it, but I want back in.

2023.06.02 00:20 Oneiropolos Tips For Life Makeover

I've seen some confusion about things in both this sub and in the game, so I've created a sort of quick guide to answer some basic questions about some of the systems in the game. I only started when the global server opened so I'm NOT an expert, but I've tried to do some research and understand things the best I can so hopefully this will be helpful to someone!
Used to talk in world chat. It can be traded in your profile screen for gold. 100 Vitality is worth 500 gold when you tap "use" next to it under your picture. It caps depending on your level so unless you talk all the time in world chat, get that gold each day!
At your home, you have two basic needs - hunger and cleanliness. Hunger is a little time consuming to resolve since you have to cook and eat multiple meals to fill it. But being full is worth doing once a day as it earns you Chestnuts to be claimed each day. The amount of chestnuts are based on how much income you are getting from the Endorsement Queen competition that is always running as you get two hours worth of income from the previous day converted directly to extra chestnuts.
You gain 75 points of energy for cooking each day, maxing at 300 points if you don't spend it. This means you have four days of leniency before you start letting energy go to waste. Each point of energy converts directly to a point of proficiency, allowing you to work up the ranks of cooking. As you reach different levels, you can learn recipes that are sometimes faster to make or take care of your hunger efficiently. Your tablet in 'Home Services' might have some recipes when you watch the food related channels (Cuisine, Desserts, and Water). These channels are also available on certain TVs and computers in homes and you will learn different recipes from them. The computer also has a special bulletin option that also can grant recipes. Bookshelves often have a single recipe that can be learned by them, so If you don't want your own personal library, make sure you keep an eye out for different bookshelves in friend's homes! The last important place to get recipes is the Boardwalk/ community center. Two recipes come from NPCs that only spawn when it is nighttime in the game HOME screen (Please note that the home time moves differently than the rest of the game and your personal clock, so you may just need to pop over and check what time it is there.) The other NPC is always there if you look around the center area.
In general (there seems to be some exceptions), clothes under 3 stars require basic dye and clothes above require trend dyes. Things like dresses cost more dyes than shoes or socks. If you have a piece of clothing you wear a lot to pass levels, Fashion Battle, or Endorsement Queen, you can increase the stats on it by raising the charm on it. The important points are 8 and 16 charm, which gives fashion style +5% and +10% respectively. Dyes on pieces that are not in a set (and thus do not have a Charm in the lower left corner) do not increase stats. From a purely mechanical standpoint, it is best to focus on getting one piece to 8 so you can have the 5% rather than two pieces to 4, as that does not grant a bonus yet. To get to 16, you will have to extend the palette to unlock more colors. This often requires you to have had duplicates of the clothing pieces that you decomposed and got specific vanes for.
Ally experience and intimacy becomes INCREDIBLY slow to get and you will want to focus on the highest tier allies possible. You almost NEVER want to spend on an R ally - you cannot get what you invested in them back and you will get SR allies through various events and methods in game for free. One thing to consider when it comes to allies is that you want to be able to attain as many duplicates as possible - so allies from gacha events are a little more of a struggle here. If that’s all you have better than an R, go for it, but when the event is gone it’ll be much more difficult to evolve and raise the skills of them in the long run. There are currently 4 SSR allies available in the permanent gacha pools - Doomsday Rose (Cool), Perfect Match (Elegant), Red Spider Lily (Sexy), Fuzzy Fun (Sweet). There are 8 SR’s available permanently. Right now, the Rose Fantasy gacha has Doomsday Rose and Perfect match SSR allies also in it, and one SSR card not available in normal gachas. If you want more information, you can click the little i on the upper right corner and click over to Ally List to see which allies are available where.
General Clothing Tips:
Only five accessories count when it comes to scoring in Endorsement Queen and Fashion battle. It will always select the highest scoring accessories if you’re not sure and there doesn’t seem to be a penalty to adding more, but there’s no NEED to add more if you are certain you have 5 that will rank the highest. In other words, that ring that only ranks as a B in Endorsement Queen is probably not ever going to be counted so you don’t have to stress yourself out putting something on in every category.
Endorsement Queen:
The way this mode work is you’re trying to pass certain scores for themes to open ‘stores’. This earns you income which also counts towards increasing your level inside Endorsement Queen. Every level in Endorsement Queen increases the bonus given to your score, so it’s important to claim the income regularly in case it’ll bump you up in score! You likely want to check this daily and make sure you haven’t gotten any new pieces that are better than something you had on. If you ONLY increased an Ally, that will often update with “Highest Record Quick Endorse” just fine. However, if you got better clothing, you will need to tap Endorsement and manually replace it. 50 Income gained=1 Chestnut and there’s no penalty to converting, so it’s a must for gaining chestnuts for your house. When you tap management, you can redeem chestnuts, see how your current income is, and tap the “Income” button. Often when you level up (and almost every time at the beginning) you may be able to increase the Ability of a store so it gives more income, or Use a Decoration that will increase income. You will unlock multiple decorations in a row - always make sure the one In Use is the HIGHER percentage in each row that you’ve managed to unlock.
I’ve seen this confusion pop in world chat more than once. Yes, you need gold. You need a lot of gold. You will NEVER have enough gold. Ignoring just basic purchases you need to buy from the store and the like, there are several heavy gold sinks! Improving your ally always requires gold and once you get to the higher levels, that cost gets very noticeable. Through your guild, you can also take beauty courses, which the second and fourth categories are increased through gold. This gives a huge boost to your stats and once you get to around the 40th class, you are spending a minimum of 300,000 gold per class with some being more expensive.
If you still have gold after that, or maybe you’re stuck trying to grind some levels so you can’t take the next course or update your ally - you should probably still keep the gold. If it’s burning a hole in your pocket though and you want to indulge, you can spend 48,000 gold at the Starlight Show permanent Gacha for a ten pull. This will get you potentially new clothing pieces, makeup, photo additions, and if you get doubles, coins in decomposition to let you buy the clothes there. If your gold is in high supply, you’re probably missing something!
Miscellaneous Tips:
Not sure where to spend whatever currency you know you just saw you got from doing whatever you just did? Go to “Bonus” on the main menu and over to “Exchange”. This is a list of all the stores so you can see what you have to spend in!
Have extra energy but can’t move forward in levels? Check other outfits out in your Fashion studio to see if there’s other items you can collect in advance to make it easier for you later. Don’t let that energy go to waste! Hitting max means it stops generating new energy for you so spend it!
If there's anything I've gotten wrong or other tips and tricks I've left out, please comment! I don't want to give misinformation and there's probably a lot I don't know myself yet. There's also things that are coming to mind that I know I've left out but I had to stop somewhere!

2023.06.02 00:20 Crayshack "Twa" vs "Trois": A False Friends Story

This is a situation I ran into a while ago that I've kept in my mind as a cautionary tale about false friends. I thought that some people here might get a kick out of it.
One of the languages I've spent a bit of time with is Scots. Don't ask me why, I don't have a good answer. I wouldn't call myself anywhere close to an expert on the language, but I've picked up a few details. One of these details is that the Scots word for "two" is "twa." Very similar to the English word given the shared etymologies and I feel like knowing that fact helps me understand English better even with it being my native language.
This factoid came up randomly at work a few years ago. I don't remember the context for it, but I commented to a coworker that "twa" meant "two." He responded with "No, it means three." Of course, this confused the hell out of me until he went "un, deux, trois."
As it turned out, my coworker spoke a little bit of French which was a language I have never had much interest in learning. But, it is a much more common language to learn than my dabbling in the obscure Scots. At the time, I was unprepared for the word I knew to have a homophone with a related but distinctly different meaning in a different language. So, I ended up sounding like an idiot because I stumbled over putting together an explanation of the fact that I was talking about a completely different language.
Since then, I've tried to keep which language the definition I have for a particular word comes from. This might have been a tiny moment of confusion, but it worked well to highlight the potential issues for false friends. Now, whenever I think false friends might be a problem, I say to myself "twa or trois?"

2023.06.02 00:20 Confusedspouse01 My (M39) Wife (F39) said she's divorce me if I join the reserves. Odd part is she's active duty. Am I in the wrong here?

TLDR: My Wife is in the military, I'm not, I said I want to join reserves, she doesn't want her non English speaking mom and son home alone during the day while I'm at basic, said she'd divorce me if I joined
My wife is an active duty service member. She also gives me endless grief about how I never served. I looked into enlisting into the reserves to both serve the country and be able to keep my job as well.
She said if I do that she's divorcing me.
At issue is we have a 3 year old son and her mother staying with us. She works a regular shift and comes home. I work from home. She does not want them in the house alone all day while she is working. Her mom does not speak English. Considering it's reserves I'd only be gone as long as BMT and TS which would total maybe 4 months. After that I'd do reserves at her base once a month for a weekend.
I don't really see this being a big issue personally as this was the norm where I grew up. One of the grandparents home alone all day with us kids while the parents were working. This also included a grandparent who was deaf and mute and was the one who normally took care of us.
Am I a jerk here for wanting to join up? Or is she out of line?
Further background: I didn't serve because my father is a NAM vet who was drafted and spoke poorly about what happened over there, in the service, and when he came home. that tainted how I looked a the military. Obviously I've changed my mind on that. She also calls me a coward, stupid, dumb, doesn't have thinking function, loser, etc since I didn't serve.. it got worse she she came home from basic.

2023.06.02 00:18 _Black_Fox_ SPOILERS - Brad getting charged and punished didn't make full sense

In Season 2 Roy Geary gets murdered by Tbag and the police think it is Bellick. Because bellick earlier left a phone call cussing out Roy where he makes a threat to hurt him.
It's so weird that the police just hear this one phone call and then just assume this means Bellick did it. It might mark him as a suspect but in reality solving a murder isn't as simple for police as "this guy threatened someone let's just assume he did it."
There is an actual investigation first they don't just arrest someone instantly and send them to prison.
Although there is some evidence against Brad,there is literally evidence Brad didn't do it.
Let's take another look at the timeline.Brad And Geary have the fight where Geary knocks out Brad. Brad is hospitalised and is questioned by police. Geary is murdered by Tbag in a completely different location.
See what I mean? Brad clearly has an alibi. He was picked up from a gym which probably has CCTV. After that he was in hospital when Geary when murdered. Aside from the fact the hospital also probably has CCTV they have a record of him being there. How is he the killer when he was in hospital at the time the kill was committed. Also the hotel he was murdered at might have CCTV on top of that proving his innocence.
