2023.06.08 01:23 Unknownuser_157 I need opinions if I should move back in with my mother or not.

To give you some background info, I (14F) had lived with my dad for 10-12 years and not too long ago I had moved in with my mother. Back in September, 2021 I had started to live with my mother because of an abusive situation with my step-mother, me and my brother called our dad and told him the abuse we had experienced for 10 years. He got angry at us and started giving us attitude saying he gave her the punishments and told her to do the things she did. He was saying things like “I don’t think y’all realize how much she has done for y’all” and “this is very fucking rude of y’all to do because she has raised you both through all the shit you put her through” he was assuming that we were the bad guys in this. He was never really there for it all because he had a job as a foreman boss and still does. After that summer he gave us a “pep talk” but was really just trying to gaslight and manipulate us to make us think she wasn’t abusing us, we went through physical, mental, and emotional abuse for our whole childhood. She used to push us against walls and throw us on the floor, grabbed us by the back of our necks and threw us outside to work, not to mention the fact that we had that punishment all the fucking time, for the littlest things. When we were around 3-4 if we were crying she would come sit on us to where we could not breath or until we passed out. She would body shame me or belittle me every time she saw me, one time she almost made me eat rat shit because I didn’t like the food I had bc it was old but that’s when her kids said that’s disgusting and too far. She used to starve us too. One time I had lied about something little and I was kid, little kids lie a lot when they don’t like trouble, but she had forced me to eat hot sauce sandwiches for a week straight saying “this will burn the lies out of you” same with foods like artichokes she had 20 or more jars of pickled artichokes and she forced us to eat them when we got in trouble for the stupidest things. There is far more that had happened but I won’t go into anymore detail, after telling my father everything he came and picked us up after summer and so we stayed with him in a hotel with his work and my mom had given me and my brother an hammy down phone that we could use to keep in contact with her, one night I was up late on it and I didn’t realize that my dad had woken up so he saw me on it. After he saw me with the phone he decided to go through it the next day and saw the messages between me and my mom, so he made a deal saying he would let us stay there for a year and see how we liked it. I liked it because I had my brother I wasn’t going to school and I could do anything I wanted to do, but after I while I went down to my dads for the summer and I decided to live with him again because I would be able to go to school and go out more, and be away from my brother, but after a while I regretted it. I miss my brother to death and I wish I was still with him, but I don’t want to hurt my dads feeling nor my papas, I also have my friends and I’d be leaving them. If I lived with my mom I could be with my cousins, and my brother. I just need help deciding if I should move back in with her or not. Opinions will be very much appreciated.

2023.06.08 01:23 YesiFuckedTed As a woman, if you feel uncomfortable in a situation where a man is approaching you, sometimes playing it cool is the safest option.

I often see the advice given to women who feel uncomfortable/unsafe being approached by a man is to immediately make a scene or to tell him to “fuck off”.
Now I’m not talking about situations where the man is obviously being threatening and aggressive, in that case make a scene and do what you can to make yourself safe.
But, there’s been too many times where 13-16 year old me would be in a situation where I was standing at a bus stop alone in the evening coming home from school or taking my dog on a walk. And these men would try to talk to me/get my number even after me telling them I’m underage.
Even when I was frightened and scared I would always play along, give them my number if they asked, and fake interest in giving them a call or hanging out another time.
I know it’s not ideal, but there’s way too many stories of young women being assaulted and MURDERED from turning down a man’s advances.
13 year old me was not equipped to fight off a grown man if I angered him by saying no. Especially if I was alone or forgot my knife and pepper spray that day. Even then he could still overpower me.
I honestly think immediately shouting, cursing, etc is not the safest option. I’m not focusing on “teaching them a lesson” as they’ll find some other girl to do it to, instead I’m focused on my safety.
Using this has always worked, they’d leave me alone with the thought that I was interested and I’d go home safely, delete their contacts, and find another route to take home.

2023.06.08 01:23 zeldaminor Update on ferritin of 3: confused!

Hi everyone, I posted here in February when I was originally diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia and extremely low ferritin (3). I got blood work done yesterday for the first time since then. My current numbers are the following:
Hematocrit: 41 (Feb: 35.7) normal Hemoglobin: 13.8 (Feb: 11 low) now normal RDW-CV (red cell distribution width): 14.9 (Feb: 14.3) HIGH MCHC: 33.7 (Feb: 30.8 low) Ferritin: 7 (Feb: 3 low) LOW Iron: 175 (Feb: 43) HIGH Percent Transferrin Saturation: 43 (Feb: 10 low) now normal (all other levels such as CBC are within normal range; vit B and D and hormones not checked)
I am feeling better in general and able to run much, much better--I am a long-distance runner (ultramarathon) and had been struggling a lot to keep even a slow, steady pace over the winter and last fall. However, I'm confused about my recent test results. My ferritin is still crazy low, which would account for still having some symptoms, but my blood iron level is too high now?! This is concerning to me. I've been taking Blood Builder Mini, alternating between half a dose and a full dose each day since mid-February, and eating fortified foods such as cereals and protein powders. I am vegan.
I haven't yet spoken to my doctor as I've just gotten the results but am confused as to what to do. I know I need to raise my ferritin level, but I'm afraid of raising the iron level since it's already flagged as high (which I never thought I would see!). Also, the red cell distribution width is high, which can also indicate anemia. What to do?

2023.06.08 01:23 madmako_ New to military dating with no support system :/

Hi guys, I am feeling at a lost. I'm (24F) new to this military dating and my bf (24M) who is in the navy recently left for deployment. I have no support system back home bc of where I'm from so I'm hoping this thread can ease my overthinking self. This is going to be a long one, so sorry in advanced! :(
Some background, my bf and I met online. He's based in Japan and I'm from Singapore so we’re doing long distance! A few days before his deployment, we managed to meet up in Japan since I was also there for holiday. It was as if fate brought us together with that little time we had before he gets shipped off haha!
We've only been talking for about 1.5 months & when we met irl, we made it official together (we move fast lol!) I really like him & we both share the same vibe and jokes, which is why it was easy for me to say yes to be his gf lol. Before his deployment, he also made an effort to facetime me almost daily bc he said he wanted to spend as much time online and irl before he sails off & that made me fall for him more! I even gave him a tshirt and a card as a gift and he brought the card with him to the ship :')
Coming from Singapore, I have zero knowledge on the US military dating or lifestyle. I was never exposed to it growing up. So when I got together with him, my friends and people around me didn't get it either. It's like I have no support system once I'm back home.. :(
Before I met him, I didn't even know what deployment is and all that. I've been reading reddit posts, blog articles & videos on how to deal with navy deployment and what to expect... But I just can't help but feel so sad, scared and helpless? I feel so stupid saying this bc he’s only been gone for like a few weeks lol.
This is only coming to 2 months of us talking and I don't know if I'm being too emotional or overthink too much. What I am afraid of is him losing interest or getting bored of me while he's out at sea :( He hasn't given any signs or cold emails to show that he is, so this might be my overthinking self talking!
I am also well aware that I should expect nothing when it comes to communication. He gave me his military email & we have been emailing at least once a day. But sometimes he takes a few more days to reply, is this normal?
There was one time after I replied to his email, I’ve not heard from him for a couple of days. I started overthinking but turns out he didnt get my email! Thankfully he reached out to me first just to check in but I didn’t know email could get lost tbh
He's on ship, not a sub so communication might be a little easier? Correct me if I'm wrong because I really want to learn more! If you guys have any knowledge, wisdom or tips to share, I would really appreciate that :) Thanks for reading my long rant if you made it here lol!
Some questions I have:

2023.06.08 01:23 LionhearthOutfitters Fixing the "Flexible Series Drop" issue

So apparently the current Flexible series drop is the first stage in a change that is being made to card acquisition that is supposedly going to be for the better of the players (not my words, this is what SD has told content creators in their private discord, at least according to KMBest's most recent video). Which has my wheels spinning thinking of what could they be working on that could even POSSIBLY fix the shitshow that is the current shift (you know its bad because I've been a SD apologist, saying they had our best interest at heart since the beginning and even I am sitting here saying to myself "this is a craven cash grab...")
On one hand we don't want all new cards to be like High Evo, who upon release so many people were excited to get him that basically no one could judge how good he was because he was only being played into other decks that were also High Evo decks... as much as it might "feel good" to just get new content for free right when it was coming out, we would be flooded with massive Meta shifts, a lack of time to understand a deck fully before something else drastically shifted things... it would be interesting sure but if it were all the time it would get old quick; Not to mention having something you are working towards is actually one of the fun things in a game where "Collecting" is an aspect. Not everyone gets the same joy out of collecting but I think most enjoy the moment they get something new that they worked towards. So how do they fix it... here are my thoughts:
The one thing they could implement that I think could make these flexible series drops work would be a "Trial Month" system. In this system every player (who is at least in Series 3) is put into one of 4 groups and each week of the month each group gets access to 1 of the new card releases for 1 week for free. At the end of that week the card goes away and is replaced by 1 of the other new releases and so on until the end of the month. At any point during the month you could buy the card as a Series 5 or Series 4 card respectively (maybe even a small discount if you buy the one that is your free trial that week?).
Example: This season group A. gets free access to Silk for week 1, Group B. Spiderham Group C. get a free trial of Ghost Spider, and Group D. get 2099. Anyone can choose to buy any of the cards in the token shop provided they come up (again maybe a discount if you buy the one you are currently getting for free so as to incentivize spur of the moment purchases). Week 2 Group A gets Spiderham, Group B Ghost Spider Group C 2099. Group D Silk. and it would change up every week until the end of the month when all cards then go into the Shop and drop in the "flexible drop" system that is currently implemented. Okay so why this works: This gives people time to play with the card and see how valuable it is to them, but also takes into account the "High Evo" of it all. This would make each month's new cards a big meta shake up but would have players playing the new cards into each other rather than into themselves. Additionally it would give the players a good handle on how good a card is after that point. Then if things are staying in S5 we as a community know its because it actually has that value and so we spend the tokens (jumping on the discount quickly because everyone sees that Silk is worth 5k tokens and act accordingly), if no one is buying Snowgaurd after their trial well then SD has the info needed to say "this product should be reworked OR highly discounted."
So thats my thoughts... How about you? what change outside of "everything should just be free" do you think they should implement? maybe something in the collection caches? i know that i have a 1/400 chance of getting a S5 card but sitting at CL4903 and never having hit a free S5 might be why keeping cards artificially high feels so bad...
Lastly i just want to remind people that we vote with our dollars. Money is the only language that companies understand, and so while I do think that ultimately Second Dinner do want to make a great game, I also understand fully that they are a business and they need our dollars to keep making a great game. If you don't like whats happening i encourage you to not spend money on the game but i also encourage you to not only do that but to do it together! we live in the internet age, and if 25% of their playerbase all say "on X date we are all going to start a spending strike" well collective action speaks a lot louder than just choosing to be done with a game... I for one am still having fun with the game despite its flaws, and the only reason all of this makes me angry is specifically because I DO ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT THE GAME AND WANT IT TO SUCCEED!
okay Fixes over, Rant Over, i'd love to hear your thoughts now.

2023.06.08 01:22 Isthatahamburger If you work for a firm and design a product for a company that hired your firm, does the company usually gift you one of the item you designed once it’s out or do you get any discount on it??

2023.06.08 01:22 lostlife27 27M, no degree, no driver license, never had a girlfriend (virgin), longest job been bagging groceries and pushing carts for the past 4 and a half years. I feel stuck and just feel my life flying by, losing time.

I feel like a complete failure, not just as a man, but as a human being. In fact, I don’t really feel like a traditionally masculine male anyway, I’m some freak who’s into femdom stuff, most women expect men to dominate them.
I’m also not very good looking apparently, so it’s even more important that I make more money to make up for that and give women more of a chance to want to be with me (good looking or not, who wants to be with someone who can’t afford rent and bills? No one wants to be at constant risk of ending up on the streets).
I’m not saying all women are gold diggers, (I do live in the US, the western world, I’ll leave it at that, and yes I’m a white American, so don’t assume I’m from elsewhere, people can complain about their own country too) but really, I don’t think anyone wants to deal with constant financial insecurity. It doesn’t just cause stress and arguments, but genuine risk of ending up homeless, or (if lucky) back to living with family dependent on them. Don’t get me wrong, that’s a blessing to have, but it doesn’t feel great to HAVE to have.
I don’t hate my family, and it’s not terrible hell living with my parents. I do pay a little (while making NOT EVEN $400 a week) but barely save any money anymore and constant credit card debt, often taking the entire next paycheck and therefore relying on the credit card that week again.
I don’t feel I should be asking my parents to let me pay less (usually $300-$400, more or less, depends on the bill which varies, I pay $100 rent and two utility bills) especially at my age.
I rely on health insurance (which sent 26 I have to get from my own age, US law allows you to stay on your parents health insurance until 26) to afford my multiple prescription medications that will have terrible withdrawal if I suddenly stopped, even slow gradual reducing the dose can be very dangerous and shocking to the nervous system and brain and body) so less hours could mean losing health insurance. GoodRX would discount meds, but not the doctors visits to refill them, nor the blood tests or other potential procedures, ER visit I probably just wouldn’t even pay……
I take UbeLyft a lot, live pretty close to the job, usually less than $10 a ride, sometimes less than $8. My parents also often give me a ride so I’m kind of cheating I guess.
Besides the fact that I couldn’t afford a car anyway, I stopped trying to drive because of rage and panic attacks (mostly from loud sudden noises, even after getting on MORE medication for worsening uncontrollable explosive rage, which fortunately did help a lot) and constant intrusive thoughts.
The intrusive thoughts sometimes get overwhelming and stick around for some weeks or months, sometimes they fade away, it’s strange. I also have OCD so that probably makes it worse.
I have a million different ideas, just wish I could instantly bring into existence. The closest thing to that now is AI generating, but it’s not perfect yet and it’s also oversaturated with so many people already using it. It cannot however generate say, fully animated videos or fully automate video editing, definitely can’t create video games.
I spend too much time playing video games and watching YouTube, because I feel I have no better use of my time anyway, and it provides short-term pleasure I can’t otherwise have. I can’t just, instantly create a successful business or launch myself into a successful career. I can’t just instantly have a girlfriend (AI doesn’t count, I don’t do that either) or even visit a sex worker because THAT’S illegal in nearly all of the US. It wouldn’t really SOLVE any problem anyway.
I feel like time is moving faster and faster (this perception of time acceleration is actually supported by science) and I’m just losing more and more of my life.
I was a loser in my teens, AND my 20s. I’d at least like to be able to save my 30s, and if possible the last few years of my 20s.
I’d like to not be a 30 year old virgin who’s never had a girlfriend, but that’s not even the NUMBER 1 priority anymore. It’s actually supposed to just be a normal byproduct of life, but I’m not normal and haven’t had a normal life…..
I have been let go from jobs and told how they’re “SO SORRY” because I “TRIED SO HARD” but I just wasn’t cutting it. Like what, am I retarded or something? They certainly wouldn’t say that, because then I could sue them with proof of discrimination.
I’ve also only worked in retail/grocery though. Without being able to drive (I’m not sure I ever will drive now) or a degree (stopped going back to school because I was unsure of my major, [and now AI is automating a lot of it too], and I knew transferring to a university after 2 years meant either having to commute to downtown or somehow moving to live there).
I know this is wrong, but I have legitimately thought about trying to scam people. But even that requires hard work, probably better to put that work into something legit and legal instead.
It feels like everything has too much competition, and only the BEST OF THE BEST can be successful and even make a living wage.
I do not see myself becoming the next Elon Musk or Jeff Bezos. But many regular jobs won’t pay any of their employees enough to afford rent and bills (including billion dollar corporations!). I also have to actually be good at something, of course.
I’m almost 30 and have no idea what to do.
I don’t identify with the typical “incel” community, but I’ll just say this, I’m not virgin or celibate because I want to be.
Too many thoughts, can’t focus on anything, don’t even know what would lead to success. I’m already 30, is it even possible to change these things (too broke to support myself, single virgin) before I’m 30? Before I’m 35? Things take time, right? I already lost a lot of my time, it just feels wasted.
You could sieve your ENTIRE LIFE at a job and it never pays good or has any opportunities to progress, plenty of people RETIRE from these jobs only because they get donations from a GoFundMe……
I don’t ever want kids now, but I really want to be with a woman romantically and sexually…..
I also got kind of an addiction to virgin humiliation JOI now, like, EXTRA MEAN femdom, lots of censored porn “for betas”, but feels pretty bad after finishing….

2023.06.08 01:22 shawnot Flipping cars ruins everything for everyone

I've been casually looking for a 718 GT4 for a few months, and after realizing that new allocations are a dead end, I started browsing for used ones in all the typical places. I recently saw a real gem for sale in Westwood, MA at the Porsche dealer, being offered for ~$124K. Gentian Blue, Manual, Carbon Bucket Seats, Carbon Ceramic Brakes, 1 owner, 15k miles.
Not to my surprise, but when I called up the dealership the salesman told me that it was already spoken for, and actually it didn't even last a week at that price. He was a really friendly guy and offered to keep me in touch on any similar ones down the road, which I of course appreciate.
Flash forward a week and now I see the same car being sold at some "side of the road" exotic car dealership in MA, for $137k. WTF?!
This is the kind of stuff that makes my blood boil and honestly is part of what drives the outrageous prices in the used car market. I like owning sports cars that appreciate, and I also understand that a dealer needs to make a profit (especially if they actually do some work on the car), but $13K for flipping a car that you basically just picked up 3 days ago is robbery in my opinion. It's instances like this that make me secretly hope the market tanks and people like that lose a bunch of money.
Sorry for the rant, but pretty pissed about that one.

2023.06.08 01:22 Aussieshepdoge 35 [M4F] #Cincinnati, Ohio - Daddy looking for a good little girl, non bratty, eager to please.

Hello there! I am a 35 year old daddy dom. I am 6'1", mostly grey hair that I keep pretty short/shaved. Blue eyes and a bushy beard that is red and greying fast. I do have a “Dad bod” (slightly overweight and a bit of a gut.) but I am working on it. I enjoy listening to heavy metal, and progressive metal. Devin Townsend is one of my absolute favorite artists at the moment. I do a lot of PC gaming and I have a switch that I don’t use very often. I also enjoy tabletop board games quite a bit, though that is hard to plan for. I am a pretty big homebody, but I would like to start being more outdoorsy, camping and things like that. I am pretty laid back and do have some quirks. Socially I am lacking a bit, I don’t do well with hints and some social cues may escape me altogether. I also have a really bad tendency to take what people say at face value. Now, not to come off as boring, I am quite funny and I like to think that people enjoy my company quite a bit. I am totally an open book and happy to answer any and all questions.
What I'm primarily looking for is someone who wants to be taken care of in a sense. I want to cook for you, dress/undress you for the day/night while also picking out what you wear, bathe you, shave and groom you. I have a lot of kinks, though I don't consider a majority of them to be "mandatory." I am a dedicated and loyal person, I want to be a foundation you can build upon and explore your little side with zero judgement, someone you can feel safe with and excited to try new things with. I want the same amount of effort I put into a relationship to be reciprocated.
I want someone who would look up to me, let me help them express themselves to the fullest extent they want without judgment or criticism. I want my girl to be obedient but not to the point of allowing herself to be taken advantage of, I would never want her to put herself into an uncomfortable situation just to make me happy. I want someone who is clingyish about 80% of the time. I want her to be able to have fun with friends or go out and enjoy things from time to time and allow me to do the same. I want someone who is comfortable around me and just enjoys my company. I want my girl to be herself, and help me build a relationship with her that we can both enjoy and explore together.
I'm looking for a cisgender girl that is somewhere in the petite to average body type range. (healthy weight and proportionate.) I prefer girls that are shorter than myself, but not a deal breaker. I am only interested in monogamous relationships. I have no interested in having children at all.

2023.06.08 01:22 Historical_Low3248 I need help with my PC

I just bought a 1tb 980 pro ssd and i installed into my PC. Prior to installing, i shut down my pc, unplugged it, and all the stuff your supposed to do when working on it. I pop open my case and install it and everything is all good until when I boot it up. In my settings it reads my new ssd so i know that’s all correctly put in, but the problem is my 2TB seagate hard drive is now no longer being read or recognized. I just took my pc apart all again unplugged and plugged it back in thinking maybe i numbed a cord somehow when installing my ssd, but still it will not read. Any help right now would be greatly appreciated.

2023.06.08 01:22 Smart_Try_3516 Am i missing something? Or am i just dumb?

I read a lot about Distrobox and Toolbox recently, because i wanted something like what i thought they were. I wish i had one machine or one vm for every use case i have, but it is impractical or too expensive.
I installed fedora silverblue and i couldnt for christ sake make it work as i intended.
Now i changed my os to POP OS, thinking it could be some distro problem or incompatibility with my machine. But after all the trouble, i wont work the way i need it to.
So im here thinking, that maybe Distrobox is not what i thought it was..
I read that there is some integration with system and it its, of course, not fully separated.
But i just created two containers, and installed firefox on both (22.04), but i can't wrap my head around the fact that both instances work like they are the same.. if i install a theme or a extension, it goes on both, and it is not what i want..
I need all separated,, the most like two completely different systems that i can..
After all i read, and videos i watched, it seemed like it would work like that.. but, i cant make it work for the sake of me.. ive been two days wated, mostly trying to work it out..
actually thinking about it, it doesnt make sense.. because if you create a container for a development enviroment, it should intefere in the same services and apps installed on other containers, because it would defeat the whole purpose of creating a dev environment to begin with.. so, i still think im doing something worng...

Catra’s life has been one never-ending problem, but after years of war, suffering, and healing, she’s finally managed to solve it and lay her demons to rest—it’s too bad that she can’t remember any of it.
Instead, she’s standing in a circle of magical, amnesiac strangers, without a name and without a past. To make matters worse, the beautiful woman holding her hand is maddeningly familiar. As decades of memories slowly begin to return, Catra and the rest of the group must piece together what led them here and why… before someone remembers something they shouldn’t.
Read chapter 6 of the story right here, or get caught up by starting right at the beginning!

I just got an offer for a flex RT position in picking. Is Flex RT really worth it? I only plan on working at Amazon for another year. I am in school so this flex schedule would definitely help. I am currently in an RT nihjt shift which is very hard on my body that I have been doing for 6 months now.

2023.06.08 01:22 RememberToBackupData RStudio life hack: Move the Source pane to the right side and everything else to the left.

Now that I write R professionally, I found that I was spending a lot of my work day with my head rotated leftwards to look at the Source pane. I thought I should do something about it before I develop any injuries, so I went to Tools → Global Options → Pane Layout and changed the panes so that it was:
And then I fully minimised TabSet and resized the Source pane so that the first 80 columns were around the middle of my screen. Now I can program without having to keep my neck rotated all day :)

2023.06.08 01:22 SRMcleod They Wear A Human Face

This will be the last statement I ever make before I disappear forever. I’ve heard that this kind of a thing is quite common for those who finally grow a conscious and decide to leave for good. I personally don’t know anyone else apart from a few people I used to work with who knew about this, so here we go. My name isn’t important, but you can call me DD. When I think about it, I’m not important at all, I’m just the messenger or whistleblower, so anything else that would further “incriminate” me isn’t important either. What is important however is this story. It’ll probably be swept under some rug no doubt, that’s the usual approach to these things, the words “conspiracy theorists” has a strong negative vibe to it, we can thank the boys at Langley and the Pentagon for that one. They have been responsible for more cover ups and lies than anyone else on the planet, except for a few. Well anyway, spoiler alert; there’s a derelict object orbiting Ganymede which is one of the moons of Jupiter… Now that I have your attention let’s begin.
I work for NASA. Well, that’s half-truth really, if you saw my real credentials, you would say that I worked for NASA, and that’d be that. The truth is I’ve been free lancing for various intelligence agencies, some named, some not, for about the last 10 years... Most of the other guys that worked with me were sort of the same, varying in different fields. My job was to delete or remove all the UFO evidence the government “accidentally” let slip into the public eye. We call them UAP’s I’m not sure why the different name but that’s what we call them. What often happens is one of those idiot Astronauts goes for a spacewalk on the external side of the ISS and gets too wild with a camera and boom one of those things is front and center of the next biggest conspiracy to hit the internet; or one of those weather balloons go up for some science experiment or something and they catch one zooming on by. Let’s face it, its been happening a lot these days, it is becoming increasingly difficult to cover up and eradiate everything, whilst Tech Giant companies continue to sell to everyone on the planet a personal camera to record anything they want, with the ability to upload it.
You can only suppress this kind of thing for so long before the conspiracy theorists finally get enough evidence together to make most denials look suspicious at best, and if you keep denying it, well you just look dumb. One thing everyone must know about the Governments of the world, they really care about how they appear to the public, in their little Geopolitical world its known as Optics, its part of their control apparatus. But that’s another story.
So, with the Ganymede object. It requires context that it’s been seen by almost every major Government in the world. Before the James Webb telescope gave us detailed images, we were getting shots from Hubble, and so on and so forth. So, when you think about it this object sort of throws a whole wrench into well... Everything. As far as we were aware at the time when we found it there was a… damn I’m not sure what it was but shit... its strange. It looks like a space station sphere within a toroid, roughly 900 feet across in diameter, it or they both look as though they counter rotate. I think; around each other which is how it is maintaining its orbit, it’s hard to tell, because the body of it doesn’t have any patterns or distinctive features or something along those lines. Juno got too close to the thing, and made it shoot out a ping. So, they had to make it out to be a bunch of random sounds and disruption in downloads for those who wanted the pics from the Jovian planets moon for the mainstream media to keep the all the people calm. The media told everyone that Juno was disrupted, and communication would be shut down for a bit until the proximity was past. Sometimes I think those types of cover ups work a little too well. Juno got a lot closer, and no one was aware. That’s when people like me take over and we work to figure out as much as possible, and then cover the rest up.
The color of this thing shimmers from time to time, we couldn’t tell whether it was some sort of technology, or defensive camouflage or something that had been busted from the internals, or even if it had been naturally made to be iridescent, what we do know though however is that it emits little to no radiation, there is zero heat, and it has no life signatures whatsoever. Throughout this you will notice how behind the eight ball the intelligence services were when it came to this thing and can sometimes be with other of these major world altering revelations sometimes. But I digress.
So, we quickly began covering up everything, and gave it a name, Little Rock. Stupid and probably insulting but that’s what we call it as it looks like a rock anyhow. We tried dating how long Little Rock had been orbiting Ganymede, though without any form of reference it was anyone’s guess, quite possibly before life even existed here on Earth. There is another thing we had to verify about it, we had to make sure of this, but it has a giant freakin hole in the center of it, one of the guys who I worked with has been looking at UFO’s for quite some time, looking for offensive capabilities and the such, he told me that the hole could have been made by either a huge comet ramming through it, at some point in the past or, some other form of kinetic weapon that was shot through it. This evidence was in the images that Juno spat out and it’s like it’s been blown to pieces. We couldn’t make heads or tails as to how.
Moving along, we fast forward to why this has taken so long coming out. After the Juno cover up, we had to get on top of this thing before other Governments decided to move on this, so we launched another satellite in secret almost straight away, this one was launched by one of SpaceX’s rockets; they made a big show that it was only launching more of the Starlink satellites, but one of them had an Ion drive on it and slung shot itself around the planet to move into the trajectory of making it to Ganymede and hopefully running into Little Rock. Well, it worked. The Satellite we sent was called Nemo, it got into an orbit with Ganymede and has produced some more detailed photos of Little Rock, and well its worse than we thought.
Surprise to everyone we aren’t alone in the universe. I think I should just rip that band-aid off and let everyone digest what I just said. And yes, I meant that, we are not alone. We have the proof, but by now I think everyone’s suspicions are just confirmed.
Nemo was shot down, by probably the same thing that got Little Rock maybe? Whatever it was it had been hanging around after Juno passed it or it could have always been there, we aren’t sure. This thing looked like some inactive debris, so Nemo approached it and was instantly destroyed. When we looked at the play back footage, which took longer than we wanted it to get back to us, it looked like a small object had approached Nemo, it had a strange physical look which puzzled everyone, the only way to describe it would be the Angel depictions from the Genesis section of the bible like a sphere within a was just bizarre.
The playback showed that as soon as Nemo got there it began moving and changing its orbital direction to meet Nemo, so we have limited information as to what it was and why it did it. When we saw the initial playback one of the four-star Generals who was there with us at the time told us all to copy it to his files for the Pentagon and delete the original. We had to do it but after that we all theorized about what our best guess was. The best one I remember was that it was some sort of proximity drone that activated too late when Little Rock got hit, went dormant again, then when Nemo turned up it went active and did its job. We think it’s a proximity drone since it never attacked Juno, because Juno didn’t get too close like Nemo did.
Now we get to the best part. Somewhere along the line the drone must have been scanning the wreckage of Nemo and figured out its origin, keep in mind that we didn’t leave one of those dumb golden plates on Nemo like Voyagers got, that pretty much says come and get us. So how it made the connection is a mystery to us. What happened next was very scary, we got the same frequencies that Juno picked up earlier here on Earth. For reference there is loads of space junk up there above our heads, and some of it woke up. To be specific the one that woke up is a bit infamous, it’s called the Black Knight Satellite, this thing has been in orbit for the longest time around the south pole; we had originally assumed it was a hunk of debris from the Mir station years ago, but as of more recently we thought it was something else, the conspiracies surrounding it say it is an Alien spacecraft, and well its true. We keep an eye on these things in case, and for the most part it stayed dormant all these years we have never had a way of getting to it without it being obvious or reckless, at least to my knowledge. When those frequencies started, post Nemo getting wrecked the Black Knight decided to start moving in a certain direction and it began emitting a frequency like the one that Juno read. Though it was softer and didn’t emit consistently it bleeped a few times then stopped and started moving.
From what we understand the Black Knight began moving towards Europe where it dropped something out of a holding bay onto a collision course with Earth. You guys should have seen the amount insanity that caused with the intel community, and NASA practically pooped themselves as this payload slammed into the Siberian tundra about 400 miles from anything remotely resembling human habitation and no one knew why or what it was.
That’s when the race had been on, every Government that wanted to see what it was, were sending everything they had up that way. The Russians had a huge head start and were pretty much all over it setting up quarantine stations and a huge facility over the top of what had struck the Earth. We were watching via spy satellites and stealth craft, whilst I’m told we had spies and wet work teams on the ground which made sense because we got photos from the inside of their makeshift facility. Our first reports showed that they’d been excavating it for days, it was a large 3 meter by 3-meter black cube. I’m serious it was a cube, with a lot of... well, I’m not sure, but the images we got back made it look like some sort of sludge. Like this oozing red sludge. The Russians were keeping away from the stuff as it probably freaked them out. They were instead sticking probes in it, taking samples and trying to figure out what it even was. The sludge was given a wide birth, as it was expanding out of the cube, the initial containment zone had been expanded, and was growing daily from the imagery we got back. This was concerning to us, and there had been talk of dropping all kinds of ordinance on the site. As far as we are aware we were moving into different defcons, which is a state of readiness for war.
It must have been something that happened because the cube emitted a pulse. This was read like a seismic event over in that region. For some reason the sludge apparently stopped moving. It just stayed in position and then it calcified. The info we got said the pulse made it crystallize and it looked like a ruby. Within the crystal were sacks or at least they looked like small gross little wiggling sacks full of puss and bile, like larvae or maggots looking for a meal.
No one exactly knew what had been going on, although they did know one thing, these larvae couldn’t be reached by anything, how we figured that out was easy. The Russians have some of the best drilling equipment on the planet and some of the largest and strongest diamond tipped filament drills in the world. Keep in mind that these types of machines and tech are specialized and leave a paper trail. They cost an exorbitant amount of money and are often from overseas corporate manufacturers. So, for secret projects they need a finer touch or end up leaving a large fingerprint on everything. In normal situations Governments will often pay using a black budget that no one can audit or talk about during a live parliament session. This relates to us because we were the ones who the Russians were buying extra drills from and our hardware to crack this structure. If Russia already had the equipment and they were buying more from overseas Manufacturers, it meant they needed help getting into it, and they didn’t care if it was obvious.
These larvae sacks eventually were dissected out of the crystalized structure The Russian government had stopped buying excessive amounts of drills, we heard. Now these larvae weren’t like the ones you find in movies, they looked like tiny little specs, which eventually grew to the size of human bodies, looked like a body bag that had veins and a lot of discharging sludge coming off them, they would wiggle around every now and then like a caterpillar moving around on a leaf, We knew that they didn’t get them all, but the willingness to continue wasting resources was weaning, they got a few of them and left the others, their scientists had found thousands of these things apparently, but they had just sealed off the cube and the word was they planned to fill the whole thing with concrete, or something worse.
The ones they extracted were moved to another facility and we only have sparring reports and rumor as to what had happened since their scientists are tight lipped and every spy that got close to this vanished. I’ll say this without any context. Its human. Somehow someway it’s human or at least appears to be. It has from the documents that we were able to obtain and translate, a human type of body with a working nervous system and humane features down to a detail. On a cellular level their cell structures and makeup of their nucleus is different though, they are harder to destroy, and the life cycle is elongated before undergoing mitosis. There was some speculation as to why they were birthed in those living larvae sacks, the theory went by some of the brains of the freelance contractors and the intel community that in order for any of those things to survive here they have to be birthed from this planet. which would include adapting their immune systems and growing on this planet. You can imagine the absolute nightmare fuel that brought about. This was when the higher ups really considered just dropping a nuke on the whole area and blowing it all to Jesus; and if I’m being honest, I don’t really blame them for wanting to do that. But somehow level heads prevailed, and they decided that if anything was going to happen the Kremlin would be the one to deal with it but if it went beyond their borders, it would be a NATO issue.
We had gotten assurances from higher ups that all data would be shared as it was increasingly obvious to every country involved. The negations meant that the Kremlin was prepared to drop any ordinance they had to deal with it. This wasn’t the best approach but there was an assumption from everyone that NATO would step in if something went sideways even if it was still in Russian territory. Things were very tense in those rooms, I’m just glad I’m not there anymore.
Here is the part that should scare the pants off anyone; we know for a fact that the larvae sacks eventually hatched, or something, and they all came out looking like humans, well they were birthed into various ages, some were 40 odd some were in their 20s, some female, some male. It was as if the birthing sacks had a set expectation of development, not only that, but they had ethnic diversity, meaning they had different racial traits and backgrounds. Some were Caucasoid, others Hispanic, Asian and so on. The Russians were smart enough to photograph and fingerprint all the ones that they had pulled from the ruby structure and thank God they did. Another weird coincidence was that when they ran the DNA and fingerprints most have matching DNA strands to those who have gone missing globally. Yeah, that’s right missing persons cases that have been all over the world, not just in the Russian region but globally. But the differences in their cell structure meant that these things weren’t those missing people, so that was its own pandoras box.
Now that we have caught up, The worst part. They lost them. They literally broke out of their containment zone and ran off into the Siberian tundra, most of them nude or in hospital gowns, those damned idiots lost them. What we know is before the giant jail break. Is that they had been attempting the communication process and education with these hybrid humans, but it hadn’t gone very well, somehow one of them had figured out some information that they shouldn’t have, and even though they were housed in one of the most sophisticated dark gulags they got, these hybrids got out, this isn’t some old soviet era dump, its an actual top level place where they were housing most spies and just pure evil people the Russian Government hated but couldn’t kill. They housed them there moving everyone else out and the Hybrids, they could communicate without anyone else knowing. So, they got out and are in the wind now, and everyone is losing their minds trying to find them. Good luck, I say.
I had to blow the whistle on this one, what the hell is being done to find these people? And what are they going to do if they catch them? I don’t know and don’t want to know, they killed everyone who knew too much and that includes me. so I’m gone, I’m out, I’m leaving this mess behind me, this will be one of my last broadcasts, don’t expect anything in the future, they are probably going to try and find me, but I’ll head off grid and stay off grid forever ill step back if anything ever comes about from this.
Just one more thing before I go, this is more of a thought that we played with in game theory classes during the strategy meetings. When the owners of the Little Rock station had a let’s call it a “security measure” in place to activate Black Knight to have all of this happen with the Cube and the Hybrids, and let’s say it’s a contingency to make sure their civilization survives, who were they fighting? and why were they losing. Food for thought.

2023.06.08 01:22 NextKing2972 [SPOILERS] Things I'm learning about ASTV from interviews

  1. Spider-Man India was gonna be a lot more different (I'm guessing more like his comics counterpart) but Indian-American and Indian-Canadian animators of ASTV got on a call with Lord & Miller and effectively molded Pavitr Prabhakar to the one we see now. Shout out to them.
  2. ASTV and BSTV were going to be one movie. They were writing it shortly after ISTV, and it was going to be released 1 year earlier than current ASTV (so 2022) but Lord & Miller realized early on that they were fitting two movies in one script and asked Sony for a trilogy instead of a duology. Sony weren't happy but supported their vision nonetheless.
  3. Fans of Pemberton should already know he loves incorporating inanimate/non-instrumental objects in his scores and ASTV is no different. When Miles draws, marker scrubs are in the score. When cars crash, their sound is in the score. Pemberton describes his favourite musical moment in ASTV being the goose chase scene in the car wash because they actually used real goose sounds in the score for that.
  4. Phil Lord credits Christopher Miller for a lot of the comedy in the film, which makes sense since I personally thought this film had his signature snappy successive humour seen in his projects like Afterparty and The Lego Movie. Namely, Miller made the jokes of the "ATM machine", "chai means tea" and all the Jeapordy prompts when Miles guest hosts.
  5. Avi Arad, who's worked on literally every movie or TV show with Spider-Man attached to it, pitched the idea of Spot being the central villain of ASTV to Lord & Miller. They thought it was silly at first but were more inclined the further the idea was developed.
  6. There are 280 (that's the last number they counted) Spider-People in this film, 95 of which are pre established characters that have existed before the film.
  7. The most recent addition to the film happened 2 months before release. It was 3 minutes of new content and from inception of idea to voicing to animating (they skipped storyboarding) to completion, took only 8 weeks to create which in animation studio terms is bewildering. Lord says this process was nowhere sustainable, so it's miraculous they were able to do this. The scene is not confirmed, but from Lord's description, it was a scene where the characters are in harmony and getting along. If I had to guess, maybe it's the Rio and Miles scene at the Captain Jefferson party, but I can't say for sure.
  8. Metro Boomin provided much of the temp music for the film, which is music used temporarily in unfinished scenes for syncing movement and melody. Some of the temp music even made the final cut of the film.
  9. Spider-Punk almost didn't make the cut according to Phil Lord, but Lord thought Hobie Brown felt perfect as a character who at first appears like an antagonist, one who has opposing world views to Miguel, but ends up becoming an ally in the end.
  10. Mumbattan (a combination of Mumbai and Manhattan) was made colorful and vibrant and bustling compared to Miles' world to emulate the Wizard of Oz scene of Dorothy opening the door to Oz and going from black and white to color film.
I have tons more but they're miscellaneous to be honest.

2023.06.08 01:22 Tomcro11912 Paramount plus won’t be a thing in 10 years

Paramount Plus is a streaming service that was created to provide viewers with all their favorite shows, movies, and exclusive content. However, it seems that the platform is not working as well as expected. There are various reasons why this is the case.
Firstly, Paramount Plus has not been able to attract enough subscribers to make it a profitable venture. The company has been struggling to keep up with other streaming services like Netflix and Hulu, which have a much larger audience. This is because Paramount Plus does not have enough exclusive content to keep viewers interested. Compared to its competitors, the platform has a limited range of shows and movies, which is a significant drawback.
Secondly, the user interface of Paramount Plus is not very user-friendly. It can be challenging to navigate the platform, and the search function is not very efficient. This can be frustrating for users who want to find specific shows or movies quickly. A streaming service that is difficult to use will undoubtedly turn away viewers.
Thirdly, Paramount Plus is not available in all countries. This leaves many viewers unable to access the platform, which is a significant disadvantage. With the rise of global streaming services, it is crucial for companies to ensure that their platforms are available worldwide. Paramount Plus has failed to do this, which limits its potential growth.
In conclusion, Paramount Plus is not working as well as expected. The platform has not been able to attract enough subscribers, lacks exclusive content, has a user-unfriendly interface, and is not available in all countries. These factors have contributed to the platform's poor performance. If the company wants to succeed, it needs to address these issues and make significant improvements to the platform.
