2023.05.30 22:22 Legitimate-Bread-585 Overcoming Fear and Building Confidence: Initiating Conversation with Someone I'm Interested In
TL;DR - I'm afraid to message a girl on Messenger because it feels cringe, but I want to change that. I had a positive interaction with her during an assistant police officer training. I believe she knows about me and my brother through some online search. I would like to message her but don't know what to say. I'm introverted, lack confidence, and used to be overweight. I dislike my pictures and don't post them on social media. I need tips on how to start a conversation with her.
Hey, sorry if I have any typos. English is not my primary language. Some time ago, I made a post expressing my lack of confidence and fear of talking to strangers. However, it turns out that wasn't entirely true. While I don't have a problem talking to people in general, when it comes to someone I'm interested in, my brain tends to freeze like an error 404 page.
Recently, I attended an assistant police officer training where I had great interactions with a few girls. One of them caught my attention, and whenever we spoke, it felt like she was genuinely interested in what I had to say. She even mentioned seeing my brother, who works as a police officer, while he was on duty. These signs make me think that she may have done some research and knows that we are brothers, not just random guys with the same last name (which is quite common in my country).
I really want to message her on Messenger, but I find it awkward and cringy. I'm unsure about what to say since the only information I know about her is her age, the city she lives in, and that she is a single mom.
I should also mention that I consider myself introverted (self-diagnosed) and lack confidence, partly because I used to be extremely overweight at around 137 kg about a year ago. Currently, I'm 22 years old, 188 cm tall and weigh 102 kg. I have never had confidence in myself and always felt like people were laughing at me whenever they saw me. I dislike every picture of myself and never post any on social media.
I would really appreciate some tips on how to initiate a conversation with her and what to say.

2023.05.30 22:22 NewChinaHand Unable to find needed California State Plan projection
QGIS version: 3.12
OS: Mac 12.1
Problem: I am trying to project a map containing parcel boundaries (vector) and orthoimagery (raster) to match the projection used by a set of (offline) project plans (which I have as an image file) so that I can line my map layers up to match the project plans using the Adobe Creative Suite.
The engineer who designed the project plans in CAD told me that the projection she used was NAD83 (NSRS2011), CA State Plane Zone III, U.S. Survey Feet.
I cannot find this precise projection in QGIS’s list of projections.
However, I tried the following projections, and none of them worked (that is, none of them projected my map layers in a way that lines up with the project plans as expected):
NAD83 / California zone 3 (EPSG: 26943)
NAD83 / California zone 3 (ftUS) (EPSG: 2227)
NAD83(2011) / California zone 3 (EPSG: 6419)
NAD83(2011) / California zone 3 (ftUS) (EPSG: 6420)
NAD83(HARN) / California zone 3 (EPSG: 2768)
NAD83(HARN) / California zone 3 (ftUS) (EPSG: 2872)
NAD83(NSRS2007) / California zone 3 (EPSG: 3493)
NAD83(NSRS2007) / California zone 3 (ftUS) (EPSG: 3494)
NAD_1983_HARN_StatePlane_California_III_FIPS_0403 (EPSG: 102243)
NAD_1983_StatePlane_California_III_FIPS_0403_Feet (EPSG: 102643)
What am I doing wrong?
Which projection should I be using in QGIS so that my map layers line up with the projection “NAD83 (NSRS2011), CA State Plane Zone III, U.S. Survey Feet”?

2023.05.30 22:21 GentowGiant 32 [M4F] Online - Looking for texting friends Accountability buddy
Hey there future potential friends! So a little about myself…
I’m Tuan. 32 black male from Illinois. Im pretty introverted. I put all of my energy into interpersonal communication as opposed to large gatherings. I am better with deep conversations as opposed to short, repetitive surface talk. I also love sharing pictures of myself or of things that are relatable in the conversation. I hope that you are comfortable with sharing also. Random pics are the best!
Some of the things I’m into include cooking, bowling, video games, puzzles (less jigsaw puzzles and more mechanical puzzles like lock boxes and rubix cubes), tv shows. I’ve never been hiking but I imagine I would enjoy it if I were to do it. I’m part time in school, my major is Computer Information Technology (IT), I took a semester off and landed a job as a Jr. System Admin and I start school here again in about a week or so. It’s been a struggle balancing time and I imagine it getting a little worse, but I can manage.
What are your favorite tv shows? What are your hobbies? Don’t be afraid to ask questions your own. I love answering them 😏
As far as what I’m looking for; I’m looking for a platonic female friend I can have a daily convo with. Doesn’t have to be extensive. I just want a consistent friendship. Also to get to know someone.The most important part is that We keep it platonic. I’m not in the position to have anything more than friends at this point in my life. I’m about 6’4 with a bigger build. I’m in the process of actively trying to lose weight. That’s the reason for me seeking an accountability partner. A plus would be someone that is also actively trying to better themselves physically. Not just in theory, but in practice. Just to keep my spirits high and have a sort of a support system. Or maybe I could motivate you. Either way, it just a plus and not required. But, if you’re looking for someone to share meal pictures with, diet ideas, suggestions, progress pictures and overall motivation, We would be great friends.
If you’ve made it this far, send me a chat request. And hopefully you’ll also share a picture. Talk to you soon.

2023.05.30 22:17 vivaciousArcanist Could I get some feedback on an immortality method in my WIP?
Context: The world is Earth, however circa 2020 a solar flare wiped out all electronic devices, and in the following few years magic was discovered and came to fill the gap left by technology. This particular bit concerns the queens of Cascadia(name is subject to change), who were both alive during the dawn of magic and persist to when the story starts, 300 years later.
Additionally, necromancy in this world is split into 2 types:
1) Corpse animation, a branch of object animation that uses corpses, there is little magical difference between this and animating say a broom to sweep the floor outside the complexity of the spell.
and 2) Death magic, or rituals that are powered by the deaths of living beings.
So onto the immortality method. What I'm currently toying with is having the mage desiring immortality to spend a time casting spells that will activate upon their death that will tether their soul to their body using the energy of their death to do so. Should these spells work, the mage effectively becomes a ghost possessing their original corpse.
Should the mage desire, immediately following their death, they can use corpse animation to manually restart their bodily functions such as the heart beat to prevent further tissue death. That said, it isn't necessary and a mage could alternatively unsleeve their bones and live as a skeleton, though that would severely limit their ability to participate in society, given that both types of necromancy are taboo so seeing a skeleton walk around would signal that something highly suspect happened.
I am not fully sure the mechanism by which the soul functions yet, however what makes this necromancy work is that the original connection bound them to the continuous state of consciousness in the brain, however this severs that connection and reattaches their soul to the physical body.

2023.05.30 22:16 RamonesRazor Skipping sensation on brakes when stopping while hard turning left.
2008 Ford Ranger XLT Pickup
Over the last couple of months I have felt a skipping sensation on the brakes when I am doing something like pulling into a parking spot and braking at the same time. It only happens if it’s a sharp left hand turn. There is a slight groaning type noise that comes along with it.
It felt like it was coming from the front left wheel, so today I took it off to check the brakes. Pads are good, plenty of meat left and the wear looks even. Rotor looked good.
I didn’t see anything off or wrong with the wheel assembly.
What else could I check? Thank you.

2023.05.30 22:15 Critical_Dragonfly73 Conflicted on what to do
So to start off, I’m 20f and my boyfriend is 38m. We are extremely happy together and I wouldn’t change a thing about the relationship.
However, my family’s approval is really taking a toll on our relationship. I’m not staying at my moms house right now because she basically kicked me out after I told her his age. I’m staying with my grandma, who also doesn’t approve and wants nothing to do with him. However, neither of them have met him or even given him a chance, and they refuse to. Yesterday, I was staying at my friends house and my boyfriend wanted to take me out to breakfast. My friend told her dad that I went with him, and he said I’m not allowed at the house anymore. Again, he’s never met him. It is also super unfair to him to have people think he’s disgusting and that he has bad intentions just because he is 38 with a 20 year old.
They all automatically assume he’s some sort of predator when that is not the case AT ALL. Neither of us entered the relationship seeking for an age gap relationship; it just happened. He is literally my best friend. We’re very comfortable with each other. When we’re together, the age gap doesn’t even cross our minds. We have an amazing connection. He is one of the only people I know I can be myself around without judgement, we have so much fun together, there is absolutely no issue with power dynamics, I know that we both genuinely care about each other, etc. I don’t want to end things with him, and I know we’d both be extremely unhappy if we ended the relationship. However, I feel like that is the only option left.
There is so much tension between my family and I, and I don’t know what else to do. I don’t want to have to live for the sake of what they approve of, but at the same time I still live at home with my mom. Not only that, but the fact that they don’t approve really upsets me and I feel like they are disappointed in me. They refuse to get to know him and they always make backhanded comments about him without even knowing anything about him other than his age. They don’t like when I make plans to see him. I keep telling my family how happy he makes me, but they seem to think I’m just a helpless little girl who will be taken advantage of.
I love my boyfriend so much and I’ve never been happier, but I hate the tension and strain it has put on my relationship with my family. Any advice?

2023.05.30 22:15 Rekix_YT Why do i feel like this at age 14
Hi, I'm 14 years old and my perception of the world I would say doesn't fit my Age. My life at the fucking age of 14 is boring, unfunny, full of suffering and stereotypes. Every day is the same, I have no experiences, I walk around in the same clothes for months and listening to my brother's experiences doesn't really help.I have ADHD which wouldn't be so bad but when you add depression, anxiety and I don't know what other disorders I have it's unmanageable. It's starting to affect me everywhere.I used to be able to hide it now I'm fed up. At school I'm all the time with no energy and no smile.Luckily I'm invisible to others so at least that's it.What pisses me off the most is that my anger and pain gets bottled up inside me and sometimes I can't hold it in and I unleash it on my dad who I love the most in the world and then I suffer even more. It's a never ending process and cycle of suffering.
I know you say "at this age?" "It gets worse."
That's what scares me. Life is easy at my age compared to adulthood and if I'm suffering like this at 14 I'm going to put a bullet in my head by 21
My father is the only one who knows that I'm probably mentally ill.Sometimes he hides his fears behind sarcastic remarks like "you're afraid of people(meaning my social anxiety)" or sometimes he tells me I'm suffering from depression so sarcastically. Sometimes when my dad gets drunk he tells me things but the only one that sticks in my head is "You're only going to suffer when you grow up" which just confirms what I've been thinking for so long
I'm tired of it and i think i don't have enough energy to live to next year

"Commander Johnathan Shepherd, XS-104, August 27, 2093, personal log. We really screwed the pooch on this one. I... I don't know where I am. The computer can't recognize the local stellar cartography, at all. I don't even know how long I've actually traveled. It was only about 10 minutes. I guess FTL time dilation is a bitch. The timing was right, but the singularity completely collapsed. My best guess is I'm about 37 light-minutes from an F, maybe G sequence star, sensors are a little screwy so I have to eyeball it. I'm not big on the math, I just fly what and where they tell me.
"I still don't even know what went wrong. I can kind of make out a couple of constellations, but they look... Off. I was supposed to only go a little over 4 light years, a quick jaunt over to Proxima Centauri. I was excited about a chance to go FTL, but now, I don't know. We have a couple of small colonies over there and have had a few successful unmanned runs, along with a light resupply for testing. Given how far off the constellations are, if I'm looking at the right ones, I think I went further, far further than I should have. Heh... I guess manned missions need a bit more work. I keep thinking a little bit about the double-slit experiment. You know, particles acting differently under active observation? Could my just being here have messed things up a bit? I dunno.
"I still have about 80% of my sublight engine fuel and 54% FTL fuel, whatever nonsense they're using to generate that huge amount of power to maintain the envelope. At least THAT math checked out. They wanted a test run of two flights, there and back, with a little extra in the tank, further testing maybe? I could care less right now, and yes, I do care, just a touch. I flipped a 180 now heading back the way I came. If all goes well, I SHOULD be close enough to detect something from Sol. I'm not picking up more than the stellar background so I'm guessing I'm further than man made signals have made it out, or they're just too weak to pick up. At least that gives me some idea of how far out I am, but that really doesn't make me feel better.
"Sandra, I'm sorry, I really thought I'd be back in time for dinner with the in-laws, and no, this wasn't just a way to get out of it. Heh heh. I love you though, I really do, with all my heart. I'm so, so sorry if I can't make it back to watch Beks grow, I'm still going to try my damndest to make it back. I have enough fuel for another shot to make my way, and I'm going to do it. I'll even ask the Devil himself if he'll give me a hand back home, I'm not going to give up.
Rebecca, my sweet Beks, I'm so very sorry if I can't make it back to you. If anything happens, THAT will be my greatest regret. If worse comes to worst, know I genuinely love you and want you to grow strong. I'll always be proud of you. Well, second star to the right, and straight on until morning.

2023.05.30 22:13 vjbm90 Potty training tips and advice
Attempting potty training with our first child (M/25 months). He’s showing lots of signs that he is ready but how do you know when is the right time?
Tried this afternoon… two pee accidents, two half accidents where he started peeing and then stopped himself until he was on the potty and then two successful pees on the potty.
For the two pees on the potty he didn’t tell us verbally that he needed to go, he just kind of froze and looked downwards so I guessed he needed it and him on the potty and then he went.
Does he need to be able to tell us verbally when he needs to go? AIBU to expect him to do that on the first day?
Any tips or advice welcome, especially what signs show he might not be ready or how long to give it a go for before deciding he’s not ready? I don’t want to push him if he’s not quite there yet

2023.05.30 22:12 Captain_Jmon Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest might just be the best ending for any movie
To this day, this is the position I will always take when someone asks me what film has the best conclusion.
Dead Man's Chest and by extension At World's End do both have issues no doubt. Their plots are a little bloated, and the films both drag on a bit. However, I find them to be incredibly charming and engrossing films. Nowhere else do I think this is best exemplified then the climax and ending of DMC.
For starters, the battle on the water wheel is simultaneously goofy and exhilarating. AFAIK too, it is mostly practical effects. The chase/mini battle between the Pearl and Dutchman is such a good teaser of what we would get with the maelstrom fight in At World's End. Let's also not forget the incredible score of not just the climax but the entire film.
BUT, the cream of crop is sequence jumping from the Kraken battle Jack's death Norrington at Port Royal Jack's vigil. Never has a film ever made me feel such a rush of emotion, chills, etc. I haven't even mentioned the incredible cliffhangesurprise with Barbossa's return for movie #3. That scene I personally believe inspired the end credit/teases that we see so prominent among Marvel and other franchise blockbusters. Overall, I don't think I had ever felt as sad, betrayed, but ultimately excited for another entry of a movie than I did with Dead Man's Chest. Feel free to disagree with me or tell me what endings you find better, but I don't think I will change my opinion any time soon.

2023.05.30 22:11 AdvancedPaint5916 Speeding ticket going 100 on an 80, what should I do?
I'm 28. I've been driving for 10 years. This is my first ticket. I was going 100 on an 80 (it was right off of the 401 and I was going around 115 on 401 and as I was pulling down my speed I got caught on the 80 km/h exit ramp).
Cop pulls me over. Mentions his body cam is active. I had my licence and insurance ready so I just gave it to him. It's my dad's car but I'm on it.
Anyways, turns out my dad left the old expired insurance in the car. Anyways cop takes my licence, asks me to look for the non expired insurance. Says he'll be back.
He comes back with my $95 ticket. I tell him I'm insured but I have the incorrect slip and ask if my registration is enough? (First time pulled over in 10 years, I have no idea what to show). Apparently my dad needed to sign the registration which he didn't. Cop mentions that and says to yell at my dad for that. Anyways he says he isn't gunna give me the ticket on any of that, just speeding 20 over. Mentions the options are on the back of the ticket.
I say sure. He asks if I need help getting back on the road (since we were pulled over on an 80 road). I say no I can take it from here.
I drive off.
So, 100 on an 80. 20 over. $95. (It is a big hit and tbh i can barely afford it right now so it would be nice if there's a way to simply postpone the payment).
Which option should I take? Please help!

Just recently my Surfacebook started to have very long boot times when it is attached to the base (140 s). What I did:
- Ran Surface diagnostic tool
- Unistalled the recently installed programs
- Checked disk space, more than 25% free
- Updated Windows
- Reset the device with a fresh Windows install
None of the above helped fixing the problem. Does anyone of you had a similiar issue and / or has an idea how to fix it?

It one thing if you know how to trade, but why is it such a popular thing now. Are people using the certificate for jobs or something ? Or is it playing into the Xbox achievement, it something nice to hang up on your wall? Some people just getting a funded account to flex like they got money like that. Some gurus be pretending. But even big time traders who been trading since before funded accounts were invented, why do they pursue this activity?

2023.05.30 22:09 Vandorbelt I feel like they really did Zelda dirty in TotK
Major spoilers ahead for anyone that accidentally ended up in this post. This is your warning. Hell, warning for everyone here, this is a long rant, so be prepared. Here we go...
This has been a gripe that has been building over the course of my playthrough, starting with the very first dragon's tear that you find in the northwest of Hyrule field, but to get into it, I have to provide some thoughts on the backstory coming into this game from BotW. In BotW, despite having an incredibly sparce story for the base game (don't hurt me, I haven't played the dlc), one of the central elements was Zelda's conflict between being a passive princess dedicated to ritual and duty and hoping that her power manifests, and her desire to embrace her own destiny by seeking ways to challenge Ganon without relying on her powers of light. The climax of this story ends with her finally realizing her powers not because of her role as princess, but because of her bond she grew with link over the course of her adventures while gathering the guardians.
The big primary character trait of Zelda is that she is a princess who makes her own way. She is soft-spoken at times, sure, but she is ultimately curious, motivated, and adventurous. She loves learning and seeing the world with her own eyes.
And ultimately, her final act of bravery was to lock herself in a century long battle of will with an ancient evil in order to seal it away and protect the kingdom. She is an incredibly strong-willed person who cares deeply about her friends and the people of Hyrule.
But what do we get in TotK? Well, in our initial scene beneath the castle, we get princess Zelda, the adventurous princess who wishes to explore the catacombs beneath the castle with her vigilant knight Link at her side. Awesome.
But then what? If we follow the story directly as laid out in the tears cutscenes, she's teleported back in time where she immediately seems unsure of herself. When queen Sonia offer for her to come back to the castle, she briefly protests, but seems to quickly give into to Sonia's quiet and comforting words. In fact, much of Zelda's behavior with Rauru and Sonia seems to have them being like surrogate parents, with her playing the part of the child who needs direction from the commanding father and gentle mother. She also gets a costume change from her normal cloaked outfit, to a more regal dress with some cutesy tears emblazoned on her cheeks.
I would have thought that Zelda, as versed on Sheika tech as she is, would have immediately taken more interest in Mineru and her work with the constructs, or would have thought herself to seek training from Sonia on how to control time, and yet at every step it seems other characters are laying out her path for her. Meanwhile, she just has this perpetual 🥺 face on all the time and seems largely confused by the things taking place around her. The first moment it seems we get an actual look of determination on her face is when she and Sonia confront ganondorf's puppet... right before Sonia is killed and Zelda immediately collapses next to her crying out in sadness.
And of course, what is her final act of bravery in this story? Quite literally to kill herself so that Link and his special sword can defeat Ganondorf. And mind you, it's not the culmination of some great personal development of her character. Quite the opposite. The pieces to the puzzle were all put in place by others. Her powers were a product of her liniage, passed down by blood from Rauru and Sonia, the master sword was sent back in time by link, the secret stones were a gift to the sages from the zonai, and the knowledge about the master sword and eternal dragon were given to her by the deku tree and Merenu. All she had to do was put them all together. Nothing about her personal journey or growth is relevant to her ability to do any of this.
Perhaps the greatest achievement of Zelda from her time in the past was the brief period between the imprisoning and the death of Merenu, where the two of them cooperated to set up the events of the game so that Link could find the master sword and save the kingdom, but this was only given brief mention in a snippet of dialogue from Merenu after the spirit temple. Hell, Zelda's dragon transformation would have been far more impactful if her final cutscenes had her as a much older woman, having spent years preparing and guiding the early kingdom of Hyrule. Plus, if she were older, it'd truly drive home the tragedy of the act by emphasizing the fact that she was never going to truly reunite with link. Even if she was transformed back, she'd be decades older.
But, of course, she is going to get transformed back, and we all know it, and so the whole thing loses its value. Not only that, but the thing that changes her back? Some vague bullshit about the power of Sonia and Rauru being channeled through link, which also somehow heals his arm? We are never given any indication that this is possible, or any real explanation for why it happens at the moment it does, it just does.
And look, I'm not saying Zelda has to be a fucking girlboss or anything. I get that this story is more focused on the Zonai, hyrule's history, and the imprisoning war with the demon king, but did they really need to strip her of all agency? I mean, BotW felt like it was at least trying to subvert the traditional princess archetype of the helpless maiden who needs her dutiful knight to save her, and yet in this story she really seems to be just that: an object for you to rescue, completely incapable of making any sort of meaningful personal contribution.
I mean, even in the throne room scene with Rauru and Ganondorf, she expresses a unsure discomfort with Ganondorf, before Rauru immediately follows with "yeah, he's definitely evil, I just want to keep him close." Like, great, so Zelda tries to provide some emotional insight into a character, but it turns out Rauru is not only already aware, but far more convicted in his belief and already acting on it. Great.
Anyway, this has been a long rant and I won't waste any more of your time, but this has just been bugging me and I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned it. I feel like the story really took a step back in the way it treats Zelda as a character, and it felt like it really undermined the message of the first game. I almost feel like TotK would have been better if it were just another Zelda game taking place in an ambiguous distant era with a new link and Zelda, rather than a direct sequel to BotW...

2023.05.30 22:09 Nonameneed454 Spiders won’t leave me alone 🕸️
I would like to talk about something different that I have experienced recently. I'm not usually a person who dreams a lot, but lately I've been seeing spiders in my dreams all the time. I see many spiders of different colors and varieties, large and small. In my dreams, these spiders appear in different places, sometimes inside an abandoned house, sometimes on the doorknob of my car. That's not the weird thing, the weird thing is that since I've had these dreams, I've been constantly encountering spiders in real life. It's not something that normally happens very often. I saw spiders in my car twice. This morning, as I carefully looked at the ceiling of my room, I saw a small spider dangling. a few days ago when i opened the kitchen cabinet i saw a dead spider in a bowl and again today while sitting at starbucks a spider fell from the ceiling on my lap. and a few more times i saw spiders in different places. I don't kill spiders, I push them slowly so they get away from me. But I don't know why they keep appearing in front of me. this started to get weird. I don't know what the meaning of seeing a spider in a dream is. I just wanted to share how I feel. And I would like to add one more thing, I am always on a journey in my dreams. I'm either going to the airport or traveling by ship. In my last dream, I found an abandoned car and ran away. I don't know where I'm going, but spiders are always with me. Spiders are everywhere in the trunk of the abandoned car, in the secret rooms of the ship, in the toilet of the airport. 🕷️ Hey spiders I would like some privacy please

2023.05.30 22:09 Burning_Dominos [Mid-Late 90's/early 2000's ?] [PC] Top down action/hack and slash 3D game where you fight demons
[Edit : I'm sorry, I fcked up the title nomenclature]
Okay this one is tough since my memories aren't exactly clear about the game.
This was probably a really bad game from a small studio, since I never came across it anymore.
Here's a small list of what I remember :
-It was an action game, character was moving in real time, and battle were real time too.
-Main character is a blonde douche in shiny armor. I remember fighting mainly demons, with sword and spells.
-Graphics were very blocky, in 3D. You could compare it to what FF7 was in terms of blockyness (when not in combat). Maybe prerendered backgrounds, I don't remember exactly.
-Very generic art direction. I remember the first level (?) to be mainly covered in ice/snow. Part of village/castle covered in snow.
For the last two details I'm very unsure :
-There was maybe loot. Like, you could loot a wand and cast ice spells. Not sure about that.
-Cover of the game featured the blonde douche under a heavy light, maybe similar to the first Deus Ex cover. Really not sure about that one either.
That's all I have and again, that's a tough one. I remember buying it second hand in a old gamestore in the late 90's. That's pretty much it. I hope somebody could help me !

2023.05.30 22:08 whoevruwant69 Much anticipated "DMT HCL"
| || |
Here is my 2nd attempt at dmt hcl.... Very beautiful shiny white... Only thing im not sure on is how to use it.... First time was much less and was only able to get about .8 grams off 1 pull from 250 gm mhrb powder. Realized it taste like dmt but vaping it hardly gave me a head change. I used naptha the first time and anyone want to guess what solvent i used for this run? Yield almost 10 grams from 500gm mhrb powder. 3 pulls minutes apart of about 175 ml total then i poured on 75ml more solvent and let sit. After i was done with the first 175 ml i seperated the solvent i poured on earlier and hit it once more with 50 ml solvent and let sit. Finished the 75 ml much faster than the first 175 ml and removed the last 50 ml. It hardly produced any so i considered the expirement complete. 6.8 gs of pearl white crystal powder about 2.8 gs of off whiteish yellow and about .5gs of more yellow crystal powder dmt hcl. Total time 3.5 - 4 hrs. Nearly 2% yield. Anyone wanna guess what i did to get the dmt hcl? Of course i used lye and distilled water and mhrb powder but what solvent and what method of retrevial. I only took 1 picture of the first 175 ml product and here she is. Could have been better but i didnt even know i was going to share this until just now. Pic is same just one is zoomed in then snapped a screenshot... How can this get one high if smoking/ vaping dont work? submitted by whoevruwant69 to DMTlab [link] [comments]
2023.05.30 22:07 ThatDruidOverThere Lost a shit ton of stuff
English isn't my first language, sorry for any syntax mistake.
When i was younger, from 11 to 19 i'd say, i use to have a folder on my pc where i'd put all kinds of shit. Photos i had taken with my shitty phone, pages upon pages of teenage angst, whole ass parties that i'd film on a gopro in the corner of a room.
This folder was like a scrapbook, but it was not really a conscious effort. It was really more like my dumb little memories that i would never look at and hope to forget to be able to discover them ten, twenty, fourty years later and show them to everyone around me when my life would have gone better.
"Let's dive in the weird psyche of a teenager trying to get a grip on life, trying to understand how it works, trying to make a path for himself and believing from the bottom of his heart that he is failing. Let's see what he is that makes me me today. Let's thank that little asshole filming himself smoking bongs, listening to Wiz Khalifa alone at his window and thinking he's some kind of grunge icon".
It's been a year since i've been together with someone that makes me genuinely happy. Scratch that, i am happy. I'm proud of who i am, i'm surrounded by people i love, i learned how to acknowledge the good around me and to give to everyone the love that i know they deserve, and this person came at the right time.
So as you do with a person you are very intimate with, you talk about your "Dumb little scrapbooks". And it hit me. It's been years since i've seen that folder, where is it now ? So i try to remember. I use to have it somewhere on my pc, on a hard drive, it never was far away from me. I remember copying the folder on Usb Drives when i had to clean up my pc, i remember quite clearly making a copy "Just to be sure".
But i've moved so much over those last years. I've lost shit. I asked my dad, my mom, my siblings who inherited my first pcs. None of them seem to have seen anything. They always tell me they'll call me if it appears somewhere, but in my heart in know that... More than surely i forgot to copy it once, and deleted it.
Today, once again, i ransacked my appartment, hoping to see the little blue drive where in KNOW it use to be, but alas, no drive, no usb, no sd card, no cloud contains the precious folder.
I was on the verge of tears, as everytime i think about it. I even did that thing where you look up at the sky and swear that you'll be a believer if only i would find it. I remembered my grandma who called upon Saint-Antoine and it always seemed to work. How lucky.
I always try to make myself feel better. I still have the memories. I really don't want to dwell to long in those times of my life anyway. It was really cringe at best.
But everytime one idea stays with me and will always hurt a little :
I use to resent not having photos of me and friends, hell i use to think i had no real friend. This folder could have proven me wrong if only i had stopped to give it one attentive look.

2023.05.30 22:06 KaleidoscopeFine9399 What's the fastest way to improve in valorant.
assuming I have way too much time, I like boring stuff, especially vod reviewing, I am willing to spend money on a coach. What is the fastest way to reach high elo? My plan is to get at least plat before I get any coaching because I feel like lower elo is just learning the fundamentals, so what is the fastest way to do that? I have less than a week of playing ranked and I managed to get silver.

2023.05.30 22:05 TheFuriousCoconut Weight gain and sexual attraction
My sexual attraction to spouse isn’t what it used to be bc they have gained so much weight that they are now considered medically obese. Their weight impacts our ability to have sex the way we used to. I know I sound shallow and with time, I know looks fade. I maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle and expect my partner to care about their health as well. IMO, maintaining your health is an important thing to do for your partner. They won’t exercise bc they quit within minutes of starting. They want me to work out with them but I can’t get a good workout if I’m doing very beginner things. I’m a runner. Started in elementary school and am now almost 40. It’s as if they expect it to be easy when they’ve gained 40lbs. Maybe this is just a vent post. They are overly sensitive and have very big feelings and what I describe as “emotional come-aparts”. This is perhaps related to something they were diagnosed with as a young adult but it has never been confirmed while we’ve been married, it’s just something he allegedly has. I hesitant to discuss all of this with them but weight is a touch subject.

2023.05.30 22:05 raracasputin Price help with my Ancestral Akaviri Chests motif?
I checked on TTS but since I play on PS I am not sure what to sell this thing for? Says its 1.9 mil on there but I cant find any in a single guild trader. I tried listing it for the TTS price twice now and I get it back each time.
Do you think zone chat would be a reliable place to try to sell this? Or should I just keep dropping it til it sells?
