2023.05.30 22:21 dabIsland When to close your A+SC and create a new one?
I had a profitable A+SC that was performing around 2.5-3 ROAS up until early may. Since early my performance dropped down to between 1.1-1.5 (on good days). I have quite a significant amount of spend within this campaign with lots of data.
Do you recommend creating a new A+SC and starting fresh in the hopes that it will fix? or do you tweak the current one and try to make it perform better? The only problem with A+SC is that there is not much to tweak besides adding new creatives, so creating a new identical campaign seems pointless. Thoughts?

2023.05.30 22:08 CertainAd46 Wife marking me have second thoughts.
My wife 31F and me a 27M have been married for 4 years and have 2 children. Our most recent son was born on May 5th and everything was going according to plan. I have been very happy with life, even when dealing with our two kids and every bill and household cleaning needed. Recently she’s been recovering from her c-section and resting while I hold the fort. Well she came downstairs of our home and saw a box and some toys on the floor and lost her shit, starting screaming, throwing stuff, including out 2YO sons bottle of milk. She yelled at me saying I’m not doing enough with the upkeep and keeping the house at her ocd level of cleanliness. I was hurt and confused.
Recently because I have the kids I get bored and go to the store with our 2YO son to burn time. I pretty much go once or twice a day and just walk around target with him.
Yesterday I went out by myself while our son napped and didn’t reply to a text that she sent, my phone was on vibrate and I rarely check my phone when I’m doing something outside the house, it’s just getting some alone time for myself.
Today I told her that I needed to get cat food because we were out, she said “you really want to go to the store?” I explain to her I just like getting out of the house even if it’s with our 2yo.
To cut it short she accused me of going out for “extra curricular activities” and the way she said it sounded like being accused of cheating. I told her sister and her mother about this and they both know she a little off her rocker at times.
I’ve recently been thinking about how easy life was before marriage, I love my kids, and my wife when she acts normal. Some people say they think my wife is bipolar or has some sort of mental issues. I wouldn’t disagree sometimes. But man my life would be cake by myself, even with child support. But this isn’t the first time this issue came up.
And for the record, I’ve been faithful out entire relationships. I purposely don’t talk to other women if I don’t have to just to avoid this issue.
What are some thoughts on this. Anyone ever deal with similar issues? How did you handle it. I would try talking to her, but it’s normally like putting water on an oil fire.

2023.05.30 22:07 oxidezblood We should get coop interactions in the next gr
If the gr games are going to follow the same kind of development process as the last two (WL & BP) id like to see more coop stealth actions.
SC: Chaos Theory, or Srmy of Two, coop vault walls would be amazing. One player stands against the wall, the others can interact with him to scale it. They can also initiate the coop vault from the top, giving them the option to reach down and pull the ally up.
Another thing is like to see, is a sleep dart drone. If drones are going to be relevant again, id like to be able to catch enemies that are about to spot allies. The ability to fire a single dart from the drone before a major cooldown could make a difference. Especially when helping new players with full stealth endeavors.

2023.05.30 22:03 YelderlyGoat Bike park at Hughes Stadium site?
Over the last few weeks, I have been being told by an enormous amount of people that Fort Collins will be home to the newest “Valmont-esque” bike park. Complete with a Velosolutions pump track, flow lines, DJ, etc.
Is this actually true? As far as I can tell, the city hasn’t even decided what they’re doing with the land. Is there insider knowledge out there or is completely made up?

2023.05.30 21:59 kittenegg25 Advice on Taking Short-Term Disability
I'm an engineer and the company I work for is terrible. They do not give maternity leave, so they told me to take FMLA. I plan to instead take short-term disability, but not tell them until the last minute because they are very sneaky and malicious, so I am afraid of what they might do if they know my next move (advice of my husband). Additionally, when I "come back" from leave, I will tell them I must work from home full-time. They will most likely not accept this and fire me lol. We are prepared for this. I just want to make sure I get the best deal (most money) possible on my way out lol. I know this sounds sleazy, but they are awful. They took 3 already-earned vacation days from all employees 2 years in a row. They make us work a few Saturdays a year with no pay, and threaten to fire us if we don't show up. They don't let me leave early for my appointments even when I reach 40 hours anyway. There's so much more I could say.
Any advice on how to optimize my situation (monetarily) with no regard for the company or professional relationship? Just stick to last minute notification and milking short-term-disability until I come in and say I will ONLY work from home. I live in SC, but work in NC, if that matters.

2023.05.30 21:36 Primary_Wish660 Sideboarding a creatureless Esper Control list for Standard.
| || | submitted by Primary_Wish660 to MagicArena [link] [comments]
I want to move back into Bo3, but it's been a while now, I usually hit Bo1 just because I didn't have loads of time and I fit games between working & life. But it's dragging me down, after going on the draw for the 7th time in a row, and then getting mana-screwed both times I'm on the play, I think I need a change. I've played it like this for a few days now, with no BankbusteInvoke.
So with this it's main goal is just get Mindsplice down, then beat them in the face with their own stuff, tokens from Emporer, or poison from White Sun's Twilight, or mill them out with Jace and Breach - the mill plan is how I win about 75% of the games that I do win, if they don't scoop to a Breach or 2 back-to-back Jaces.
I will usually lose to mono-red if I'm on the draw and don't get a sweepeenough lands, or a Wretched Sorrow to re-fill life, but on the play it's been zero problems so far. I have a decent chance against most things - except mono-blue, and to be honest, I think I sideboarded too heavily thinking of mono-blue. Every single mono-blue I've gone up against has had every fricking phase out possible at the ready after we trade counters and think I've ran them dry at least, and I have yet to be on the play against mono-blue in weeks now.
Any advice on sideboarding for this, in general, and any changes I should be making - most likely using less mono-blue minded counters? I would of liked to more heavily lean into the Mindsplice paying for more of the 'pay X' things, but honestly people will just scoop, at least in Bo1, when I've managed to sweep and stabilize. https://preview.redd.it/7vvvxkb4a23b1.png?width=1920&format=png&auto=webp&s=55103300a94478d8168f0540aa06bbb0ac9f68d9
2023.05.30 21:35 whatsakobold So I guess it is true - The real support is only for families, children, and young adults
I am 38 years old and received my diagnosis early this year after a massive depressive episode in December leading me to seek a psychiatrist and therapist. A couple of sessions after diagnosis, my therapist mentioned I could maybe start looking into support groups or meetups. I was originally very hesitant about that because, hey, social anxiety.
Today I decided to poke around and see what I could find in my area, kind of hoping the stuff I've seen here about lack of support for adults was just the usual run-of-the-mill Reddit doom & gloom.
Well, y'all are right. There's groups for young adults, children, and 'parents and families'. The 'parents and families' one really grinds my gears, since it's obvious we get dropped from the radar after 20 or so, but they still get their fucking group as full-blown adults not actually having to experience this first-hand.
I understand that as you get older, there is more of a mindset of needing to pull yourself up by your own bootstraps and take charge of your situation. If I didn't have social anxiety, or the anxiety around taking on additional large responsibilities in my life, I'm sure I could work towards starting a group (I would see this as a large responsibility, I understand others wouldn't, but any new 'project' in my life can add a lot of stress and trigger depression if I feel it's not going well). Starting and managing a group like this would be a thing I'd be capable of, but it would not be good for me. I really hate that adult mental health gets so fucking little attention in this stupid country (USA).
Sorry, just needed to vent. Thanks for putting up with that.
Edit to add - It's not like I'm in some rural area where it's just generally harder to get groups for anything together either

Hey y’all I picked up some Spanish moss when I was in SC off the road and I wanted to bring it inside to see if I can grow it and I was wondering if anyone knows how to kill chiggers and other bugs living on it without killing the moss?

2023.05.30 21:32 DangerousGrocery5 Housing concerns
Recent fall admit junior transfer for 2023 here. Wondering how likely it is for me to get housing on campus. I hear from a lot of other SC students that the village housing fills up the earliest, which is 4/5 the options that I applied for. Do you guys think it is worth trying to find roommates for on campus housing still since transfers are not guaranteed housing? I am considering looking off campus.
Would appreciate anyone getting back to me. Thanks.

Finishing up a machining class for my final quarter of my ME program. These are a couple of extra projects I finished on the side as well as my capstone project. I am beyond hooked and know it's a matter of time until I start looking to fill out a home shop. I spent every available hour in the shop outside of class just to get more lathe and mill time. Any recommendations on where to start with tools would not go amiss. I am about to start my first engineering job and will be able to think about gearing up. submitted by TheUnholyfreak to Machinists [link] [comments]
2023.05.30 21:18 darkbeatzz Double Microdisectomy
I had a microdisectomy on April 4th released out of hospital on the 6th. Things were going well until day 8 when I started to get pain across my back. I couldn’t find a comfortable position. Two days later I asked my wife to bring me back to hospital as I was finding it hard to stand up. I was readmitted to hospital. I had my microdisectomy redone 3 days later as I could not sit or stand. Unfortunately I had picked up an infection and spent a month in hospital. I am out now and 6 weeks after my second surgery and generally things are going well. I had my bloods done and infection has cleared up and I’ll be finished the antibiotic (linezolid) tomorrow.
My question is around recovery. I have been doing very little since getting out of hospital. I’m increasing the walking which I find really helps as I find sitting around makes me stiff. What should I expect over the next few weeks considering I have had two surgeries? Will it take me longer to recover ? The surgery resolved the issues I had before hand, my main concern now is what to expect over next few weeks as I continue to recover. Is pain normal? When should I expect to start feeling less stiff and for pain to subside ?
Thanks a mill

2023.05.30 21:13 Intelligent-Ad-6025 The CDC's Most Recent Webinar On How They Plan To Treat Chronic Pain
The CDC’s and Other Government Health Agencies Skewer the Chronically Ill, Chronic Pain and Disabled Population; A Commentary on The Latest “Guidelines” From The CDC:
(please refer to webinar)
If you don't want to watch this whopping eight minute video about government ran agencies talking about how to run our health care services for those with chronic pain, chronic illness or disabilities. Or, if you have watched it but don't really know what it means, then I will just tell you what this about and what it means. Most of this is in response to taking away or banning in many instances, the use of certain medications used to treat chronic illnesses and chronic pain that has left people disabled. They are admitting the pull out of opioids/opiates as well as their attacks on other medications such as Benzodiazepines, ADHD medications and in some states they have gone as far to reclassify muscle relaxers and Gabapentinoids as scheduled 2 narcotics. The fall out from this has left many chronic pain patients, chronically ill and disabled people without ANY health care, greater mortality rate, higher rate of homelessness, less functionality, poorer quality of life and many doctors that were not pill mills but still locked up in prison for the rest of their lives for running pain treatment centers in rural areas. They also bring up that, curiously, even though opioid/opiate prescribing is lower then it has ever been in US history, they are seeing a steep incline of illicit use of opiates amongst the adolescent demographic, to which they have never seen before. They do not understand this because young folks who have "muscle skeletal" pain are usually prescribed NSAID's or acetaminophen; they just can't figure out why the rate of illicit opiates in this demographic is higher then it has ever been when they are not even being exposed to prescription opiates. That's it they end that issue just sort of scratching their heads. According to their data if some one has not been exposed to prescription opioids/opiates these children shouldn't be doing this. According to their data NSAID's and Tylenol should be efficient enough pain relief for any and all types of muscle skeletal chronic pain conditions. I won't put words in their mouth or give you my opinion on why that is, even though my opinion would be based on some very good data, medical studies and other types of studies that have been conducted over the years. I will say that I think I shouldn't have to give anyone that opinion because I think the answer is obvious; keep in mind these kids are too young to have ever been exposed to opioids/opiate medications or crooked marketing strategies by Perdu. They go on to promote something called "healthy people by 2030" which is a government health based website that advocates for many healthy life practices and choices. One of those things is making sure that the chiropractic's industry stays open for customers, not for free at a charge, to make sure they are accommodating the needs of chronic pain patients. I am not sure why this is said and done because chiropractic treatment has been available and continues to be. They go onto say those with loved ones, friends and family that are chronic pain patients; empathy and sympathy is what is needed most. "Many times chronic pain sufferers will try to pretend they are not in pain. If this is your loved one or a friend or family member, make sure to have plenty of empathy and sympathy. Also pay attention to their body language, if they are rubbing the part of their body that is in pain or making facial expressions it's important to remind them not to over work themselves. That they need to take time to sit and rest; we need to get society to where we are stopping chronic pain at it roots". So what that means is that they expect everyone in society, employers, family, friends, loved ones, complete strangers the entirety of the health community to accommodate any all with chronic pain conditions (disability is not specified just chronic pain period). This is their answer, and the CDC is endorsing this, on how to treat chronic pain, chronic illness and disabilities in the absence of effective treatment (effective treatment being used currently is not discussed but current effective treatment implies without the use of opioid/opiate medications). Ok, so this is really confusing if you have not been keeping up with this stuff so let me fill you in on what this means in a deeper sense. As a person who has chronic pain, chronic illness or a disability. What you are supposed to do is make sure you are regularly attending physical therapy (cost estimate as much as $3,000 a session and as low as $45 for a "wellness" checkup that is only 30 min standard session is 1 hour fees vary depending on insurance, what company or if no insurance at all). Typically they recommend physical therapy once a week or every other week; although many primary and family care physicians understand once a month to be more practical for low or lack of income individuals (the CDC and Medicare almost demand once a week). You are also supposed to attend a gym and have an active membership. You are to seek a psychologist for cognitive behavioral therapy or psycho therapy to deal and manage your pain (costs on this can very widely as well as much as $200 a session). You are to see a psychiatrist to make sure your psychiatric needs are met with medications for mood management. You are also supposed to attend "mindfulness training" once a week; which is a fancy name for meditation. You are also supposed to attend either (and this is the only one they give options on) a chiropractor or get acupuncture done once a week. You are to follow up with your primary or family care physician to stay compliant on your meds (NSAID's, Tylenol, muscle relaxers, and then usually one of the following sometimes combined with one other thing but usually one; Tricyclic, SSRI, SNRI, anti-psychotic or anti-depressant that plays with neuro-nucleotides like Cymbalta, Amitriptyline, Nortriptyline, Effexor, Haldol as some examples, Steroids or Gabapentenoids such as Gabapentin or Pregabalin aka Lyrica). You are also supposed to see a pain management specialist at least once every other week (per CDC) for trigger point injections and nerve blocks or ESI's aka epidural injections (these can cost in a wide range as much as $5,000 for one injection the lowest I have personally seen is $2,000 for one injection to which some report as little as 4 hours of pain relief some injections patients report only 4 days of pain relief we are told these are supposed to relieve pain for as long as several months but really this is dependent on what pain condition you have and what is causing it and what type of injection is received for the injection). On top of all that they want to make sure that as a chronic pain patient, chronically ill or disabled to make sure to keep up with your social life by spending quality time with friends, family and loved ones. To make sure you are financially secure with either a job or disability/retirement benefits for those who apply (job is emphasized over over social programs). Lastly, to make sure you are eating healthy and getting between 8 to 10 hours of sleep a night (this is all per CDC and other government health agencies including CSMS for those whom are on retirement benefits). Now where were we, so essentially they want the entire society to let any one with chronic pain or illness or disabled to be allowed to go at their own pace. Allow for late appointments. Take breaks and rest as needed and avoid doing anything that causes or exacerbates chronic pain or illness and disabilities in the first place. They are not doing this as a policy they are doing this as a guideline so no company, corporation, business or any personnel is held to this by any legal measure. Once again I could insert my own take on this based on pretty solid evidence, but I think this is unnecessary as it should be obvious what the outcome of this will actually look like. I'll just ask this simple question; do you see an employer doing any of this for a customer or employee? Do you see all these different health care agencies accommodating to all their patients being late due to being slow and thus not punctual for this menagerie of different health care specialties the government health agencies want us to attend? The CDC seriously pushes for all, not just a couple, but all listed health specialties; and the other government health care agencies agree without question. They go on to talk about how they think the reason doctors feel so pressure by the CDC, DOJ and DEA in the helping of managing chronic pain or illness and disabilities is nothing more then they have not attended any of the CDC's seminar's; which are being updated for the fourth time in this single year. They say that doctors need to take time to understand and have deep conversations to understand their patients needs. That doctors need to be there for patients when in need of social rehabilitation and assistance such as obtaining a case worker, social worker or disability (which if you've been in this situation you know they will not do due to health insurance regulations, government interference, regulation or policy enforced by the company they work for or affiliated hospital, shortage on doctors due to covid and arresting so many for prescribing meds, health practices and administrations that run health offices running on a profit based model that basically demands that each patient visit only be 15 minutes to maximize the number of patients seen in one hour and legal issues in which many expert witnesses, colleges and other entities have sued doctors over the prospect of money which results in the termination of their job and license). Nope, none of that, it's all because they did not attend the CDC seminars that are continuously out of date and currently being "updated again" to ensure that doctors are staying compliant with the guidelines that are an unreasonable expectation at best and consistently changing. As one of the panelists says "after all these are not policies they are guidelines, and if no one knows how to work within those guidelines because they haven't taken the seminars they won't know how to implement them. We are really struggling with this one because when we passed the opiate prescribing guidelines for 2022 they were very strict and many states independently adopted these guidelines into law and policy that are different from state to state, but pretty much all do the same thing. We never intended them to be laws and policies but merely guidelines. When we released the 2023 opiate prescribing guidelines, we went back to the less strict guidelines resembling that of the 2016 opiate prescribing guidelines where the MME count was at 90MME instead of 50MME...we have seen no change in state accordance". These people act like our social safety nets are as accessible as over the counter Ibuprofen, when in fact they almost as accessible as the opioids/opiates they sought out to completely ban and obliterate out of our society regardless of the consequences is has had on health care providers and the chronic pain or illness and disabled people they were used to give back quality of life, pain relief and functionality. Andrew Klodney (one of the chief panel members that created the 2016 opiate prescribing guidelines) said "an entire generation needs to die in order for people to see my greatness". I don't think he meant to quote Hitler, but that is something Hitler did say; astonishingly Hitler also took opiate pain meds away from the chronically ill or in pain and disabled. Hitler also promoted "euthanasia" as a "humane and ethical way of helping those suffering to die with dignity". It wasn't until later many people found out he wasn't just euthanizing people who were in end of life care (or lack there of due to no opiates given to the general public, and only administered to his inner circle), as a humane and ethical way of dying with dignity; he was just killing anyone who had any kind of chronic pain, chronic illness, disability and that includes mental disabilities as well. Back on topic, the fact of the matter is our social safety nets, social rehabilitative services (SRS) like the SSA , food stamps, financial assistance and on have been slowly having their funding cut and certain facets of it being privatized over the years. The past ten years we have seen the most cuts and privatization of these programs then any other time in US history since their inception by FDR. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has not only been red taped but it is out dated. One of the reasons why you may have had your disability case denied is because the judge that decides on your case confirms the local job market with a job coach or vocational rehab specialist. The judge looks at your limitations and asks "based on this persons limitations, education and experience are their jobs in the local area this person can do and how likely is it that they can get one of these jobs?". The career specialist is financially incentivized to find a reason to deny a disability case for one. Two they do have to go off of what the current job market economy looks like, they only have to go off what it looked like since the ADA was last updated which was back in the 90's. This career specialist is absolutely reciting jobs that no longer exist and haven't existed since the late 90's or early 2000's and completely ignore the fact that things like pre covid door greeters are a thing of the past. They ignore the fact that job codes and other nifty legal loop hole language in job applications specifically designed to get around the ADA exist. They completely ignore that a vast majority of the republican party representatives have deregulated capitalism to the point of crony capitalism in the name of free market capitalism (give the employer the freedom to hire who they want and decide for themselves what is or is not a "reasonable accommodation"). This is so much to the point of government protections, I spoke with a disability discrimination attorney who said "the big corporations have got so much government protection and have been deregulated to the point I cannot even do my job. Many disability discrimination lawyers have changed their title or quit. There is no certainty or guarantee that anyone can hold a company accountable for disability discrimination anymore". To top all that off there are many company owned health care facilities, although this is not federally or state mandatory, have created policies where they are no longer taking private payers; people without health insurance. Some states are requiring each person who is disabled to reapply for disability every year, some states require that a person cannot be on disability for more then five years regardless of their disability statis. The state of Pennsylvania, to my understanding, has moved the retirement age up to 66 and the District of Columbia to age 67 some have considered even higher all the way up to age 71. Many states have cut food stamp spending or almost cut them all together to where many people who have been on food stamps for years have had their food stamps taken away from them entirely. In the state I reside in I was denied Medicaid due to the fact that, while he is my fiancé, we are not legally married and as far as they know he is nothing but a roommate. They denied my Medicaid claim because for a two person household, regardless of the relationship that person holds with you, one cannot make over the amount of $24,000 a year; I guess that is an acceptable amount for two people even when the money being made that is over $24k is not the person claiming Medicaid, but someone else's hard earned money. The mantra of the very conservative and traditionalist government when it comes to our social safety nets is one that would take us all the way back to the 1800's. Absent of major infrastructure where we all lived in small communities and everyone knew each other; they think it is the job of your friends, family and community to take care of you and not the government to which any one who has worked has paid taxes to support. The CDC and other government health agencies have made a catastrophe as the systems they are relying on are out dated, defunded and privatized. It is a system that essentially funnels people into homelessness and is one of the contributing factors as to why our homeless population continues to rise at what should be seen as 'at an alarming rate'. Which has led to outbreaks of diseases we have not seen since the 1800's like tuberculosis and cholera, due to all the human feces on the sidewalks and streets. I have been saying, it is a highly unsustainable system for the democrats to pretend they are the only party, take away pain meds which are the cheapest pain management regiment and most effective with limited risks comparatively, especially for those whom are disabled due to chronic pain and chronic illness and most likely to be unemployed or on disability. To take away opioid/opiate medications, act like they have the power to give all this untreated disabled patients with chronic pain and illness unfettered access to social programs when they do not have the ability to do this as every bill in the senate and congress put forward to do so in blocked, filibustered or expelled by the republican party. Along with that any headway progress that is made is undone on the state level where some states even redirect their social welfare funds to other entities like private home communities and private schools claiming "it stops early pregnancy and facilitates fiscal responsibility which helps homeless rates decline"; even though many chronic pain or chronic illnesses cannot be help or are caused by over working. Then the republican party red taps, defunds and privatizes our social programs. Then the republican party deregulates the market to where you cannot even hold a company accountable to nearly any laws at all. This is a system that is very dysfunctional as one is not guarantied disability income, health care, financial assistance, pain medication, employment and even if you do get employment there is no guarantee they have to do anything to accommodate your disability or health needs aside form allowing a person an inhaler for asthma or to make sure they can take their insulin during lunch. The CDC and the government health agencies that follow them blindly pretend that non of that is even ever an issue. In the webinar they even make claims that suggest if every one just lives as healthy as they possibly can, then no one would ever develop any underlying health conditions. I hate to be the arbiter of truth, but that is simply not true (that's me being nice it's BS with a capital B and we all know it). I don't know how we went from a society that understood snake oil pushers are everywhere to a society that might as well be saying we should live like the boy in the plastic bubble. Bubble or not the reality is as we grow old we fall apart and eventually we will die. You can live your life as healthy as humanly possible, and there is nothing wrong with that, but it will not stop anyone from growing old and dying nor will it stop all chronic pain or illnesses resulting in disability. Many of these things can be obtained genetically, many are from dangerous work environments that are physically intensive manual labor or repetitive and being overworked (70 hour work weeks are becoming the norm). Many times it is a combination of genetics labor. Being as healthy as you can by including (this is a real thing) waring SPF lotion inside can be helpful and lower risks but they are not a deterrent. We are incapable at this time of not only offering a suitable replacement for opioids/opiate medications, but we are also incapable at this point in time of having a society completely free of underlying health conditions such as chronic pain or illness and disability especially one where no one grows old and dies; one could easily argue we may never see such an existence as it may not even be possible. My final thought on all this is that I really don't care what kind of "guidelines" the CDC makes and other health agencies. Even if they make them into policy, how are they going to get an entire society and everything in it to accommodate (not even all) chronic pain or ill disabled people. People you don't even know, with so many conditions that cannot even be seen as they are internal. How is that even possible? Is that even possible or is this nothing more then fantasy or pipe dream? I know many people try their best and most have empathy and sympathy, but we can't even get what we already have to work in the favor of chronic pain or illness and disabilities to work now. Although many full able bodied people have the best intentions they have things going on in their life such as maintaining a sleep cycle, a social life and many of the above mentioned prescriptions given to chronic pain and illness people or those with disabilities by the CDC themselves. As the saying goes, there's only so much time in a day; and well there's only so many years to a life. Let us not deny the cold reality, taking care of a full grown adult with a chronic pain condition, chronic illness and disabilities is very arduous and taxing and most don't have the time or energy to take care of every chronic pain or illness disabled person for the 24/7 needs they may have. Let us also not pretend that every one out there has it in them to be 'the good Samaritan' especially multi-conglomerate corporations who hold a for profit model even if it is at the expense of another's well being or life and in this day age at the cost of our own society. There are many that will not engage with this, cut corners, do the bare minimum or just flat out not do it. They could be doctors, police they could be anyone within this society; ultimately it is a standard that cannot even be enforced and wont and I can pretty much guarantee that. This is the CDC's proposal of what to do since they took our pain meds away and chronic pain patients suicide rates have gone up 400%. They did this with no back up plan and since chronic pain patients and the chronically ill and disabled have had their health care turned into a joke with no resources to help. Taking away pain meds has also not caused a drop in the use and overdose of illicit opiates/opioids, it's gotten worse as many who seek their medical benefits take to the streets and become another number. The CDC members responsible for this just sit around scratching their heads like this couldn't possibly be due to the fact that they took away a safe supply leaving the entire population of society with either an illicit contaminated supply or the worst opioids or opiates possible which is buprenorphine (Suboxone) and Methadone; regardless if one is a recreational user or some one who needs them to function as close to a resemblance of their old life as possible for medical reasons; basically an entire rehash of prohibition and or the lead up to Nazi occupied Germany as if we have collective amnesia and haven't learned anything in the last 100 years at all.

| || | submitted by wtsnk to E30 [link] [comments]
I recently started a new job with a ~7.5 mile commute each way and needed a second car. Decided to spice up my the drive with a little 5speed, reminiscent of the one I learned to drive on.
Picked this ‘87 325, no e, up in Libertyville, IL after the guys at The Werk Shop
did a bang up job replacing the timing belt, water pump, some front engine gaskets, rear subframe bushings, and a few other much needed maintenance items.
Over the course of 3 days I drove her ~315 miles / day back home to Charleston, SC. I didn’t touch an interstate or chain restaurant the entire way.
She may not be fast, but she’s mine and made over 28mpg the entire way home. It is definitely more fun to drive slow cars fast!

2023.05.30 21:00 Pavke 1,000,000 (One Million) Cow Kills! Results from 2184 Cow Level runs
This project took about a month and a half to complete. Like always, it was done with my Single Player Sorceress
. Last Cow was slain yesterday, I was trying my best to finish this before the Diablo 4 release date.
You may remember my 10k Terrorized Act Boss Post from two months ago. After some Magic Finding, I wanted to get back to Rune farming. I have already done 11k Lower Kurast Chest runs and 20k River of Flame Chest runs. This time I actually tried killing monsters.
One million Moo Moos
You are probably wondering about the title: 1,000,000 Cows Killed!
It sounds so bombastic, how do I know how many Cows I killed? I know exactly how many Cows I killed, to the last udder!.
Cowihilus This Small Charm that actually counts every kill,
- There are 350-400 Cows per Cow level, so I multiplied the number of runs... NO! That’s not correct. There can be way more Cows per Cow level than that. It depends on the size of the Cow level. I tested maps from 334 up to 672 Cows. And numbers may vary drastically even on the same map.
- Each Cow kill gives 39,868 Base Experience... So I checked my experience gain after every run and… NO! That’s way too complicated and also not fully accurate. There are Unique and Champion Packs which give different experience values. I was killing Rakanishu and other monsters when getting the Leg, so that would screw the calculations even more…
- I made a Cow Kill Counter mod to precisely track the number of kills… YES! An actual in-game item that counts your kills! Big thanks to Bonesy, hidden gem of D2R modding community. This mod adds a Small Charm to your inventory and counts your Kills and Deaths:
so I needed to be careful not to have it in inventory when getting the Leg. Otherwise, it works wonders! Here is the link to the guide if you want to make your own: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TxP_RdoCdOk&ab_channel=Bonesy
You need some basic background in modding to follow the Guide. I brushed it up a little by giving it a Mephisto Soulstone look and a custom name.
I used the Cow Kill Counter to track the number of kills and I used my regular tracker to count the number of runs. Project started on 21st of April and ended yesterday on 29th of May. It took me 2184 runs to kill One million Cows
doing about 50 runs per evening and more on weekends. https://preview.redd.it/zyu5xgby423b1.png?width=596&format=png&auto=webp&s=0e2648b9d483b23830684fda7efec194b5e6bdb1
Map and Build What kind of Cow level you have matters when running many Cow runs.
Before I started to count the runs, I did several tests to find the optimal map. Like I already said, you can have as few as 334 Cows up to 672 Cows per map.
Depends on the size of the actual level. You don’t want it too big because you will spend more time teleporting around the level searching for big packs of Cows. You don’t want it too small because more time from the overall run will be wasted on getting the Leg. One of my good maps was huge! Cow Kill Counter counted 672 kills in few of the runs. On average, I was getting 590 Cows on average (30 runs) on that map. But, the map was too big, I had to run two loops to check most of the map area so the runs were taking too long. I settled for a medium sized map which had 510 Cows on average.
Of course, I didn’t fully clear the map in my runs. I focused only on big packs and stayed just long enough to kill the majority of the pack leaving some behind so I don't waste much time. I skipped the Unique and Champions pack since they take longer to kill and have lower chances to drop Runes, so it made little sense to farm them. Remember, Cow kills per minute efficiency is the key!
It is implied of course that the Tristram portal is right next to (or very close to) Story Field Way Point for a shorter Leg fetch run.
Since my deadline for One Million Cow Kills was to finish it before the Diablo 4 release date, I knew I had to be very efficient. Not just with the map, but with the Build too. Played Nova Sorc with following gear:
Griffon's Eye (5/5 light facet), Ormus Robes with +3 to Nova (4/5 light facet), Frostburns, 2x Stones of Jordans, Arachnid mesh, 2/10 crafted Amulet, Silkweaves and -15 light res Mang Song’s Lesson (5/5 light facet) with 8x Lightning Skillers.
You are probably wondering why the Mang Song Lesson.
You should know that I really like Nova Sorc. I actually love the build. Have been playing it ever since Patch 2.4 and theorycrafting about it a lot.
I looked at every possible item variation for Nova Sorceress and it turns out, for this specific thing (Cows), Nova Sorc with Mang Song Lesson is the highest DPS out of all builds. It’s also something refreshing and new. Won’t go too much into math details, but here is damage per second table for all possible Nova Sorc Item Builds (per monster lighting resistances) : https://preview.redd.it/gae30o70523b1.png?width=1720&format=png&auto=webp&s=d7e402d9f4ccbf34e853ec31740c865c0f750728 With this Build, I had 820 hp, 3970 mana and was sitting at -30ish resistances with 105 faster cast rate.
I don’t really need much (if any) resistances vs Cows since they all hit with physical attacks. I was putting out 35200 damage per second (Cows have 50% lightning res). With Static Field casts and my Nova damage output, I was saving about 1-2 casts per pack with this Build compared to any other. Also, it was very satisfying to see Mang Song actually being useful. Each run took 3 minutes or less (30 seconds to get the Leg included)
, I was killing around 458 out of 510 Cows on Players 5 settings
. In total, it took me 120 hours to kill 1,000,000 Cows in 2184 runs.
Without further ado, here are the results: https://preview.redd.it/44l8mtf1523b1.png?width=778&format=png&auto=webp&s=f680e3e673f9ff085a999a3cf1ef4fc9e5a68803 Very happy that I got 3x Jah, 2x Cham and a Zod
. On the right side, there are 3 runes. Those I got while testing the maps and the Build. I got some pretty nice GG Runeword Bases, like 15/3 4os Matriarchal Bow, 15/3 Grand Matron Bow, 15ed Archon plate, 15ed Dusk Shroud, 15/15 Eth Balrog Blade, 15/3 Phase Blade
and many others. In the beginning I collected Jewels and SC. Got 15as/37ed and 15as/38ed jewels and some very good SC. But after some time, I stopped collecting them because I was rushing to finish this before D4.
Although I got all these High Runes and good Runeword Bases, this project took 120 hours to complete. Which is way more than my other farm projects. At a High Rune (Vex and above) drop rate of one every 4 hours
, Cow Runs are way worse than my River of Flame runs considering efficiency. There were days and days without any significant drops and I was thinking about quitting. But somehow I made it through. On other hand, I got 4x Jahs while only 1 in RoF...

2023.05.30 20:57 ireallydontcare05 I was attacked in front of 3 cops, then threatened with arrest.
Ok to preface this a bit. I am a regional director in the apartment industry. I run 12 different companies across dall- fort worth.
So this morning I am making my rounds and I go to one of my properties in fort worth. When I show up the secretary informs me that there is an altercation going on at an apartment between a tenant and her granddaughter, they are breaking windows and destroying property and police are on the way. As the director I have to go and collect witness statements from the tenant. I get info from tenant. And while 3 pigs are talking to her I walk over to the granddaughter to get her side of it.
I walk up and start talking to her calmly. Attempting to de-escelate the situation(something the cops were not doing at all). After getting her side, our first action is to separate the parties. So we start helping the granddaughter get her things as she was leaving. During all of this, her boyfriend, who is not a tenant and is visiting property starts to become confrontational with me. I opened my hands palms out in a peaceful gesture and say. I think it's is in the best interest if you leave the property and allow us to sort this out between the tenant and her granddaughter.
At this time the boyfriend gets up in my face and starts pushing me. Now, me not wanting to severely injure a teenager, called over to the cops along with an employee of mine standing nearby. The cops witness the guy shoving me and proceed to sluggishly walk 20 yards and not do anything but stand there while I'm being assaulted.
The guy finally sees the cops standing there and just starts walking off property. I pull one cop to the side and inform them that we want him trespassed from the property and I want to file charges for assault by contact.
The cop gets in my face and says that my actions ( holding my hands out to my side, PALMS OUT. Was an aggressive action and they could arrest me for assault.
At this point I tell her to stop, give me names, badge numbers, and city identification number ( this is what they dont want you to get, badge numbers dont matter). And to leave the property immediately. And instructed them to go no further than the easement until a LT or Sgt was on scene. Needless to say the Sgt tried playing the "it will take months for any action to come to the officers involved,"
Unluckily for them. I'm a very patient man.
I CANT SAY THIS LOUD ENOUGH FUCK THE POLICE ALL COPS ARE BASTARDS
