Should I end my friendship?
I've (20) had this friend(20) who has been my friend for the past 6 years. We used to be used close in the beginning but then around year 4 she had to move abroad. I have DPDR so I often forget that people around me exist when I haven't seen them for a while along with some other issues I face.
From the start, she's never really been a great friend to me. I've always thought of her as an escape from my shitty household, so I saw her as a light in my gloomy existence at the start of our friendship. This light being the very reason I never really saw her flaws till later on but even then I would tolerate them because I needed my escape.
Moving forward to year 5,she's gone through some very traumatic shit that I would always help her through. But she's very manipulative in the sense that when I was going through my own shit she she sent me messages about how she was going to KHR and that forced me to invite her over to my house and later when I asked her she said she wasn't serious.
This is year 6, now I notice so many issues with her that I don't have the patience for and I know I'm not a good friend but I've always been good to her and she's acknowledged it. She's admitted that I'm there for her more than she's ever been there for me. She now uses me as a escape from her terrible hostel life, which I was fine with till she came over to my house and admitted that she not only has a new best friend but that she was sad that the boy she liked (loves) wasn't willing to meet with her and that she only came over to meet with him.
The other thing that really hurt me was that we decided to meet this new uni friend I made. She has this issue of kinda being self absorbed to the point where she continued to talk only about the guy that she liked to my friend and didn't really bother asking him any questions. Not only that but when my friend asked her questions about me her responses really fazed me because I didn't know that's how she viewed me. She said words like yeah "I clinged onto her" (me to her) and that whenever I would address my issues with her I would basically be "throwing a fit". This visit btw was imposed on me by her, I didn't want to meet her since I was still grieving my dead cat and things were really terrible for me when she stayed over
This was the last time I talked to her in person,after that she asked me if I wanted to hang out I said no. Now, she has messaged me saying that she knows that I was sad and that she's trying her best.
I don't know how to respond.. should I just end it?

2023.06.03 13:49 TreCoPie Need legal advice in cyber case.
Hi there few days ago I found out that my account was frozen on request of Hyderabad Cyber cell and after requesting a lot I managed to obtain the report copy. On the report say a person X reported that he was cheated for approx 10 lakhs and his money was send to my account. I Sold USDT to a user who paid me the said amount from person X account and on receiving the INR I released the USDT. Now the problem is that my account is frozen. And I'm trying to reach the ACP whose name and contact details is on the report but he's not responding so I'm about to email them.
And it was a pretty huge amount almost 60% of our family networth. And I don't know what I should do. Interestingly when I called the one who made the complaint wasn't very cooperative I explained to him bout my situation and I asked do you know or use Binance/crypto he said yes when I asked him if you sold USDT he wasn't answering me and ultimately dropped the call and blocked me.
He have stated in his report that someone insisted him on WhatsApp to make subscription to YouTube channels and he will be paid and later on he was told that invest in crypto and he will get benefits and then magically he gave his account and his 10lakhs were given out to 40 people over days and he did what nothing...? Kinda funny. And strangely X name start with P and account from which amount was send is R and the trader in binance name starts with A. What the heck is even happening.
And something "Garibi me atta dhila" happened to me Chandigarh cyber cell made a hold of another amount on my account and this amount was never transacted in or out of my account. And trying to contact the officer he don't even picks up the call.
So, what can I do what are my legal aids that I can take. And everyone is asking me upfront fee when everything I have is freezed.
Kindly assist me if there's any legal ways I can get my hard earned money back.

2023.06.03 13:49 queenliz2fr Voldemort's many victims
Inspired by the comment that I made in this post: https://old.reddit.com/HPfanfiction/comments/13z6amv/voldemort_successfully_kills_harry_in_the_forest/
Harry dies in the forest but the sacrificial protection is enacted. When Slughorn and Charlie show up with reinforcements for the second part of the battle of Hogwarts, most of the Death Eaters are killed or neutralized and Voldemort, even if still powerful enough to fight Slughorn, McGonagall and Kingsley even with his crippled powers is still not powerful enough to fight an entire army alone. He gets apprehended and thrown in Azkaban isolated from everybody else. Normally he would have been sentenced to death but by now everyone agrees with Hagrid's statement that he has become too much less than a human to be able to die.
One night as he is pondering in his loneliness over his frustration that he knows so much more magic than anybody else but is unable to use it, he sees his mom who tells him to repent for his crimes because she saw what he will become otherwise and shows him the flayed baby from the King's Cross chapter. Voldemort disregards it thinking it's a trick of the mind and the dark room.
Then the next day he is visited by Myrtle who tells him she had always looked up to him. He was so charming and so good at everything and so popular, while she was a loser and Tom Riddle was the only one who ever acted nice to her when told some classmates who were bullying her to leave her alone. Voldemort just shrugs and responds that he was a prefect and was just doing his duty and doesn't even remember her name. He killed her by accident because he didn't know there was someone else in the bathroom and accuses her that it was because of her he was forced to forever shut the Chamber of Secrets.
Next day he is visited by his father and his grandparents. They all express shame about what Tom had turned out in life. Despite always hating the paternal side of his family, he surprisingly starts to feel a bit embarrassed while watching the disappointed looks on their faces.
The third day he is visited by Hepzibah Smith who is still shocked about Tom's betrayal. She reveals that she had always loved Tom and while she never expected a young handsome boy like him to love an "old hag" like her back, she still treated him like a son and a friend. She revealed her deepest secrets to him and welcomed him into her house, always gave him a nice tip because she knew Mr. Burke was a miser who underpaid and overworked his employees. Now what's this? Is Tom feeling a shadow of guilt.
And so it happens every night some ghosts being accusatory, others questioning his unnecessary brutality towards them, until he gets to James and Lily. Both mock him for being such a coward as trying to kill a defenseless baby, only to meet his downfall at his hands. They are followed by Bertha Jorkins, Frank Bryce, Cedric Diggory and the mother with the two children whom he killed in his quest for the Elder Wand. They all ask him what had they done wrong to him in order to deserve to be killed. Voldemort thinks he is going to collapse in tears after such a lengthy torment especially when the ghosts are joined by the envoy of Gringotts who yell at him for killing them just for being bearers of the bad news and with occasional flashes of Grindelwald toothless smile mocking him by asking him "Did you get what you were looking for?". The group is finally joined by Snape whose throat is still bleeding and says through gargles "I have always been faithful to you, my lord (the words are uttered mockingly) and put my skills to the best of my ability to your service. Yet when I came with a simple request of not killing a person that wasn't even on your target list, if fell on deaf ears. Serves you right!"
For the first time in many, many, many years Voldemort collapses to the ground and starts crying while saying to what may seem to an outsider no one in particular "I'm sorry! I'm sorry I killed you all!" and then everyone disappears except for two people. Voldemort suddenly feels at peace as Dumbledore and Harry, who despite their antagonism in life, look at peace and have kind looks on their faces. They point towards a light.
"Well I think Tom it's time to join us," says Harry.
"But why did all this happen?" asks Voldemort confused.
"Don't you remember Tom that I once told you there are worse ways of destroying a man," explains Dumbledore. "To be quite frank I hoped it would last longer but seems your mother's love saved you from beyond the grave from the fate I had in store for you."
"So am I dead?"
"I think so, your soul appears to be mended," responds Dumbledore. "It seems like you really came to feel remorse about all your victims after having to see their faces every night over the past couple of years. Unfortunately I don't think your body made it. Feeling remorse after making horcruxes can be quite an intense feeling. So much so that it will break the heart and kill the body."
"But then why didn't I die earlier?"
Dumbledore chuckles at this and for the first time Tom actually gets to see the infamous twinkle in the eyes, "Well you see Tom? It was all part of my plan. Remember when I told you that merely killing you won't satisfy me. I wanted to see you suffer through your neverending torment before you finally embraced death through remorse."
"What do you mean?" asked Voldemort confused. "I thought you had Potter destroy all my horcruxes so I would be mortal again."
"I might have mislead Mr. Potter here and his friends with regards to one of your horcruxes. I knew you managed to also turn Gryffindor's sword into a horcrux and I knew no one willingly helping you got access to it. I wanted to keep it intact so you'll have all eternity to finally die by your remorse," explained Dumbledore in a kind tone.
"But I never managed to get a hold of the sword of Gryffindor because that dumb hat would not let me," said Voldemort quite frustrated. "In the end I had to settle for Nagini just to accomplish my obsession with number seven."
Now it was Dumbledore's turn to look shocked, "Wait what? You actually made your pet snake - a living mortal creature with an average lifespan of 30 years - the container of your soul? Not even I thought you were that stupid, Tom."
Voldemort looked away in embarrassment and Harry also looked at his former teacher quite confused.
There was a long silence before Harry decided to break it by pointing towards the light, "Anyways, welcome to the afterlife Tom!". Tom realized that he was starting to change. His bone-white skin was starting to get a normal color and when he managed a glance at his reflection in toilet water he noticed that his facial features were becoming more human. He was ready now to step into the light. It was strange. All his life he had feared death but now he was at peace. He saw the light as inviting and he knew that nothing bad would ever happen to him if he were to step into it.
But then all of a sudden heavy chains started enveloping his body and they were all tied to the dead bodies of the people that had been visiting him so often lately. They were dragging his body to the floor and they were very difficult to drag. "What's happening to me?" he asked.
"Oh yeah by the way... you have to carry the weight of all the lives you destroyed for eternity. Just feeling remorse does not spare you from the eternal punishment for your crimes," explained Harry casually. "Also don't expect a warm welcoming party in the afterlife. Now let's go!"

2023.06.03 13:49 DraconicMagister Help finding contact information for school, hospital, and a therapist
Hello! I was hoping I could get some help tracking down some contact information so I can get records.
Looong story short I'm American but grew up in a few places abroad, among them being Geneva. Beautiful city and country, miss it terribly.
Unfortunately I find myself needing a few records to prove somethings to social security, and I was a child there in the late 90s early 2000s, so I'm struggling to get the information I need.
It's a long shot but if someone could help me track down who I need to speak to that would be wonderful.
The first would be my old school, I don't know how to spell it so I made a voice recording of me saying it
. It was a white villa that had gotten repurposed into a school for troubled kids, everything from autism/adhd to mental retardation and psychopaths. I think it was uptown or something because it was about 45 minute or an hour walk from the main train station which was a couple blocks from where I lived. It was next to a giant office building for...I'm pretty sure a phone company or bank? Something monolithic with a logo.
I know that's not terribly a lot to go off of, but that's why I've been having trouble.
I was also in a psych ward for a few weeks at the hospital university Geneva, and while their website does have an English section it doesn't seem to have any email addresses.
The third is is likely the least likely, my therapist. Her name was Madame Jackson, child therapist. I really don't have much more to go on then that.
If someone could help me with the contact information I would deeply and truly appreciate it, and I appreciate you taking the time just to read my post! I also have a couple of old school friends I'd love to speak to again but I have no way to know how to even begin to try and make contact. Likely a question for the school if I manage to get in contact with them.
Thank you again so much for your time! Smiley day to ya!

2023.06.03 13:49 carolynkeene2000 Am I the asshole for starting to slowly cut off my friend?
Sorry if this post is a little wacky, I've been up for almost 24 hours and I've worked for 12 hours within that time doing heavy duty lifting so I'm tired.
I 22f am friends with 26f. We live in different countries and only communicate online. Recently my depression is getting to me and my friend is going through a lot of issues right now. I'm worried that how I am now is going to affect her. We've been friends for over half a year. During this friendship we have talked literally every single day.
To explain my mental health and how it affects this post, I have Severe Reoccurring Major Depression as well as anxiety.I tend to overthink and also have PTSD and insomnia. I also found out recently I tend to be jealous about my friends. Like if I consider them my best friend I want to be their best friend. (I am working on trying to fix that state of mind. It's the first time I've noticed it and I'm trying to fix it.) Anyways due to my friend pulling away due to whats going on with her, I've been pulling away mentally/emotionally. The overthinking is not on purpose, but it is getting to me/triggering me by telling me she doesn't actually care and that I'm not actually her friend. It's causing me to shut down mental and emotionally for days and I think she knows something is wrong.
She messages everyday, and we talk about what's been going on with her. She's been asking how I'm doing and I've honestly been avoiding her questions. I've never done this before but I'm consciously trying to pull away from our friendship. My brain keeps telling me she won't notice and that eventually I'll just be gone from her life and she will have never remembered I was there and that it's for the best so my bad mental state doesn't affect her.
I will not disclose what my friend is going through due to it being something personal for her and something I know if affecting her really badly to have to go through.
So WIBTA if I continue pulling away from her due to fear of how my mental health will affect her? The reason I think I might be the asshole is because I'm just pulling away without talking about why I am pulling away with her. But at the same time I already know I'm not her best friend and we haven't been friends long so maybe it's best to pull away now before either of us get hurt. I'd rather be the one hurting than her which is part of the reason I'm seriously considering slowly pulling away. I know I probably sound childish, but and I probably ATA but I can't control how my overthinking is affecting me. Plus I can't afford therapy/don't have insurance. So please don't bring that up. I want to go back but I can't rn.

2023.06.03 13:49 No-Apartment-6158 Am I obligated to help someone who constantly messages me for help?
Few years ago I came across a facebook message of a woman begging for help as she was in a very difficult financial situation and was unemployed. I went through her profile and saw that was also begging for help on other pages etc. explaining her situation as well. I believed her story & because our country has a very high unemployment rate and poverty is growing.
I felt so bad and decided to give Sadaqah, but I made the mistake of not making myself anonymous as I had to ask her a few questions regarding her banking details ( so I could send her money ). After that, she would message me few times a week asking for money and I would give her. It wasn’t much as I was still a student, but it was enough for some food. It got to a point where I couldn’t afford to send her money anymore and I started getting annoyed/bothered by her constantly messaging me. She has also promised to pay me back but I haven’t seen any money back ( I also wouldn’t of accepted her money back because I know she needs it ).
Ive spoken to her and explained to her that I cannot constantly provide for her and even recommended local food banks, but she would still message me. Ive blocked her number and facebook profiles, but she would get a new numbeaccount and message me again. I tried to be a good person and please Allah by helping those in need but I felt like it was getting too much and I stopped.
It’s been a few years and Alhamdullilah Im in a better financial situation but I still get messages from her ( not often, but once in a while ). I ignore them, but part of me feels as if I should help her due to her being someone who is in need and me being in the position to help her. Im just scared that she will start to rely on me as her source of income and the messages will start flooding in again. What should I do.

2023.06.03 13:48 wtfixair12 The Role of Air Conditioner Cleaning in Preventing Mold and Mildew
Air conditioner installation in Adelaide
play a vital role in keeping our homes cool and comfortable during hot summer months. However, if not properly maintained, they can become a breeding ground for mold and mildew. The accumulation of dust, dirt, and moisture in the air conditioning system creates the perfect environment for these harmful substances to thrive. In this article, we will explore the importance of air conditioner cleaning in preventing mold and mildew growth, as well as provide you with valuable tips and techniques to keep your AC unit clean and mold-free.
The Role of Air Conditioner Cleaning in Preventing Mold and Mildew
Air conditioner cleaning is a crucial task that should not be overlooked. Regular maintenance and cleaning of your AC unit can help prevent the growth of mold and mildew, ensuring a healthy and comfortable indoor environment for you and your family. By keeping your air conditioner clean, you can avoid the following issues: Mold and Mildew Growth:
Mold and mildew thrive in dark, damp environments, making your air conditioner an ideal breeding ground. If left unchecked, these fungi can spread throughout your home, causing respiratory problems, allergies, and unpleasant odors.
Poor Indoor Air Quality:
A dirty air conditioner can circulate mold spores, dust, and other contaminants throughout your living space. Breathing in these pollutants can lead to respiratory issues and worsen existing allergies or asthma.
A clogged and dirty AC unit has to work harder to cool your home, leading to increased energy consumption and higher utility bills. Regular cleaning ensures that your air conditioner operates efficiently, saving you money in the long run.
Neglecting air conditioner cleaning can result in the accumulation of debris and blockages within the unit. This can cause the system to malfunction or even break down completely, requiring costly repairs or replacement.
To prevent these problems, it's essential to incorporate regular air conditioner cleaning into your home maintenance routine. Let's explore some effective cleaning techniques and best practices to keep your AC unit in top condition.
Effective Air Conditioner Cleaning Techniques Turn Off the Power:
Before starting any cleaning procedures, ensure that the power to your air conditioner is turned off. This step is crucial for your safety and to prevent any damage to the unit.
Clean or Replace the Air Filters:
Air filters play a vital role in trapping dust, pollen, and other airborne particles. Over time, they can become clogged, hindering proper airflow and providing a breeding ground for mold. Clean or replace your air filters regularly to maintain optimal air quality and prevent mold growth.
Clear Debris from Outdoor Unit:
The outdoor unit of your air conditioner can accumulate leaves, dirt, and debris, obstructing airflow and promoting mold growth. Remove any obstructions and clean the unit with a soft brush or vacuum cleaner to ensure proper ventilation.
Clean the Evaporator Coils:
The evaporator coils inside your air conditioner can collect dirt and dust, providing a perfect environment for mold and mildew. Use a soft brush or a specialized coil cleaner to gently remove the buildup. Take care not to bend or damage the delicate fins.
Check and Clean the Condensate Drain Line:
The condensate drain line removes excess moisture from your AC unit. Over time, it can become clogged with dirt and algae, leading to water backup and mold growth. Inspect the drain line regularly and clean it with a mixture of bleach and water to prevent blockages.
Schedule Professional Maintenance:
While regular DIY cleaning is essential, it's also recommended to schedule professional maintenance at least once a year. HVAC technicians have the expertise and tools to perform a thorough cleaning and inspection of your air conditioner, ensuring optimal performance and longevity.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
- How often should I clean my air conditioner?
It's recommended to clean your air conditioner every one to three months, depending on usage and environmental factors. If you live in a dusty area or have pets, more frequent cleaning may be necessary.
- Can I use bleach to clean my air conditioner?
Yes, you can use a mixture of bleach and water to clean the condensate drain line and prevent mold growth. However, take precautions and follow manufacturer guidelines to avoid damaging other components.
- Are there any signs that indicate mold growth in my air conditioner?
Yes, some common signs of mold growth include a musty odor, visible mold or mildew, and an increase in allergy symptoms or respiratory issues when the AC is running.
- Can I clean the evaporator coils myself?
Yes, you can clean the evaporator coils yourself using a soft brush or a specialized coil cleaner. However, if you're not comfortable doing it, it's best to leave it to a professional.
- Should I cover my air conditioner when not in use?
It's recommended to cover your air conditioner during the winter months or when it's not in use for an extended period. This helps protect it from debris and moisture, reducing the risk of mold growth.
- Can mold in my air conditioner be harmful to my health?
Yes, mold in your air conditioner can release spores into the air, which can cause respiratory issues, allergies, and other health problems, particularly for individuals with pre-existing conditions.
Proper air conditioner cleaning is crucial in preventing mold and mildew growth, ensuring a healthy and comfortable indoor environment. By incorporating regular maintenance and cleaning practices, you can avoid issues such as mold-related health problems, poor indoor air quality, and reduced AC efficiency. Remember to clean or replace air filters, clear debris from the outdoor unit, clean the evaporator coils, check and clean the condensate drain line, and schedule professional maintenance when needed. By following these tips, you can keep your air conditioner running smoothly and enjoy clean, cool air throughout the year.

2023.06.03 13:48 LostPurple3574 I got 1000 Upvotes here last week grabe! Answering your questions to achieve what I have now.
Hey guys! Really overwhelmed with your comments of support, really really happy to receive a positive feedback with everyone. I am the one who made this post: https://www.reddit.com/phinvest/comments/13vc18u/you_guys_did_this_to_me_with_your_advices/
With that, I am happy to share answers to your questions on the comment sections. Please take everything with a grain of salt as all our based on my experience, different advices, and my take on it as I assess it on my knowledge, capability, and situation.
So the question is, how was I able to achieve a bit of financial confidence in me as a young 20 year old guy years ago? (I am 28 right now)
To give more background, I am from a poor family. I paid for my education by working as a BPO employee, I had nothing and I experienced na makitulog sa kaibigan just to have a shelter. But I never gave up
Let's say you are like me, you have a good education but you just graduated and you don't know what to do.
Once you start working, you are going to realize that salaries between 20-40k is pretty low for a COMFORTABLE LIFESTYLE (Sorry I won't sugar coat)
You wanted to have a good lifestyle, a good stable income, a good demand with your expertise, and extra fund monthly to do side business, investments, or simply enjoy life. You can also plan out getting your first car in this.
With that, here are things that you should know or consider to do:
- Get job experience - This is pretty basic but I believe some people undervalue the importance of this, a lot of people wanted to jump from nothing to a high salary quickly but the question is, what can you offer? Why will a company pay you that much? What can you contribute? You see, it is very important to get actual work experience first and your next decision will be based from what you are feeling and seeing with your current industry. I am not a fan of average work as I like to be someone who is great in what I do. Because remember, Average effort can only produce average results
- Augment Your Skillset - What exactly do I mean by augmenting your skills? It can be as someone who is good in spreadsheets and data, similar to accounting or statistics. But the question is, how can you get paid good with that type of knowledge? Learn new skills that is complimenting your current skills - Learn coding or programming in which can transition your expertise from just knowing accounting/data skills and become a data scientist, it can also be something like you being a digital marketer but knowing how to use different skills like email marketing, eCommerce Softwares, Copywriting, and many more! You get the idea, how can you make yourself valuable to your clients/company.
- Decide what kind of lifestyle will you be comfortable sustaining - Decide which lifestyle you are willing to spend on that will give you comfort, security, and focus on what you want to achieve. This is very important as I have experienced it recently, not being in an environment that you want would make you do less. Point is, you can't really spend less with the lifestyle that you want. Its a matter of earning more instead of just focusing on bigger savings. If 50k is your comfort level, then earn more to save more. Wala eh, magastos talaga yung comfort mo. Again, living frugally na di maayos will just make you distracted and uninspired.
- Focus on increasing your earning power - Its just pretty common na most people starts with "Ano pwede investan? "San pwede mag invest?", while it is a good way to start knowing about investing but a lot did not consider EARNING POWER. Remember, if we just talk about Mutual Funds for example na mag gain ka ng 8-10% yearly, if you only have 10k to invest thats only 800-1000 php gain. Now, you can start investing naman but the most important thing is to increase your earning power. Investing 1000 php monthly can only give you little gain kahit ano pa yan to be quite frank. Kahit maayos na start yan if you want to achieve more you should focus increasing earning power. Ano to? Salary increase, more clients on the side, bigger role na may bigger pay talaga. Connected yung 5 ko dito.
- You are the asset - Yes, you are the asset. It means invest in yourself. Why will clients and company pay you a high level salary if you are just someone na makikita lang kaagad skillset? is it a matter of exploited agad na mababa pay mo? No, its just reality na you are irreplaceable. You have to be someone na valueable sa company. Make yourself valuable enough na loss ng company pag di ka nila nahire or if you leave them. Build that portfolio, compile your achievements, become outstanding. Pero even with this, don't get exploited parin and take care of yourself. I am not talking about overworking, just invest more in knowledge, experience, and expertise.
- Budgeting - This goes different for everyone, but for me nilalabas ko agad yung expenses ko before mag start yung month. Example June ngayon, nilabas ko na expense ko nung May last week. I have budgeted my rent, electricity, wifi, food, leisure, gas, car expenses. etc. All of these are cash or nakahilaway na sa main bank ko where I keep my money, EF, investments. I have a specific bank account/digital wallet for spending and a wallet organizer with multiple categories (Food, Gas, Parking, Groceries) meaning, yun lang pwede ko gastusin. Di ko gagalawin yung pera ko sa bank, yung tinabi ko lang for this month. I do the same process every single month
- Saving and Investing - Pay yourself first, before mag start month ko again nakabudget na, kasama na doon savings and investment ko. If you have good income na, decide mo magkano savings mo and investment and bawas mo na agad sa gastusin mo. Remember, Income - Savings = Expenses. Not the other way around. Make sure to also build an EF (Emergency Fund, for example 20k monthly cost of living mo then you should have at least 120k for emergency at buhay ka for 6 months without income if may emergency.)
- Insurances - Sorry, but don't get VUL. Do that math and you'll see, compare mo din health/life benefits niya vs traditional insurances. Traditional parin talaga, investment-wise naman mas madali pa mag invest sa ETFs/Mutual Fund. Based on my own exp and research to, shitty VUL. haha, get a 10-20 year payable life insurance to protect your health in case of emergencies.
- Learn about investing vehicles - Learn about putting your money sa stocks or as simple as putting money sa mp2 pag ibig, mutualfunds and ETFs. Invest at your own risk, make sure to study first. I wont really give an advice here besides LEARN IT!
- Invest in yourself mentally and physically - So lahat ng ginagawa mo sa buhay worth it ba? You are not an endless self-improvement project. Yes we still do a lot of effort to achieve excellent results pero end of the day you have to enjoy life with your loved ones and kahit ikaw lang din mismo. You are not climbing the mountain to say "I AM HERE AT THE TOP" but for you to see the world. Take care of yourself mentally and physically, enjoy and live a long life.
I hope may napulot kayong aral or something na pwede niyo i-start, will be leaving multiple links sa post na to sa mga threads na pinost at finollow ko before. Best of luck everyone!

2023.06.03 13:48 feloniousskunk Badge Beasts
I was digging through past posts and didn’t find an answer, so I’ll ask. How can some people get their badge on day 1 of the month? I’m only getting three quests a day, which by my math, means that the earliest I could get the badge is in 10 days. Until last week I had a little dice roll that would allow me to change the quests, but that’s gone now. Other than that, how can you refresh the quests? What did I miss?

2023.06.03 13:47 riyajha01 Biden says he got 'sandbagged' after he tripped and fell onstage at Air Force graduation
| || | submitted by riyajha01 to u/riyajha01 [link] [comments]
President Joe Biden quipped that he got "sandbagged" Thursday after he tripped and fell — but was uninjured — while onstage at the US Air Force Academy graduation.
Biden had been greeting the graduates in Colorado Springs, Colorado, at the front of the stage with salutes and handshakes, and turned to jog back toward his seat when he fell. He was helped up by an Air Force officer as well as two members of his US Secret Service detail.
Onlookers, including some members of the official delegation onstage, watched in concern before Biden, who at age 80 is the oldest president in US history, returned to his seat to view the end of the ceremony.
"I got sandbagged," the president told reporters with a smile when he arrived back at the White House on Thursday evening before pretending to jog into the residence. Two small black sandbags had been onstage supporting the teleprompter used by Biden and other speakers at the graduation.
"He's fine," White House communications director Ben LaBolt tweeted after the incident. “There was a sandbag on stage while he was shaking hands.”
Biden has been dogged by questions about his age and his fitness to serve, and his missteps have become fodder for political rivals as he campaigns for a second term in 2024. He has stumbled before going up the stairs and onto Air Force One and he once got caught up in his bike pedals while stopping to talk to reporters near his home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

2023.06.03 13:47 oofB0T Question About the church of the bulb(spoilers for both ravening war and ACoC)
So based on how we know the bulbian church acts in “a crown of candy” isn’t it safe to assume that raphaniel was successful in his mission of warping the church towards his views, and do we think that he’s the reason the church is the way it is in “a crown of candy”? Cause I feel like the church is much more “balanced” and less zealous in this season then in “a crown of candy”

2023.06.03 13:47 OkJunior43 Most Important Thing For Fortnite Mobile Users!
I am using Rog Phone 2 (Android 9). When I recently installed Fortnite, I got a loading screen that said Optimising Content after everything is downloaded. After that Fortnite was running butter smooth like literally no frame droppings at all. But when I uninstalled and installed Fortnite again, I never got this Optimising Content loading screen after everything is downloaded. And therefore the game is running normal full of frame droppings here and there. My question is "How can I get Optimising Content loading screen after everything is downloaded"!

2023.06.03 13:47 markwilliam2544 Revolutionizing the Road: A Look Into the Latest Car Technologies!
Are you ready for the future of driving? Car technology has come a long way in recent years, and it's showing no signs of slowing down. From electric cars to self-driving vehicles, let's take a deeper dive into some of the latest car technologies that are changing the game.
First up, electric cars. With concerns over climate change and the push towards sustainability, electric cars have become increasingly popular. Not only are they better for the environment, but they're also cheaper to operate and maintain. Plus, with advancements in battery technology, electric cars are now able to travel longer distances without needing a recharge.
Next, self-driving cars. While this technology is still in its early stages, there's no denying the potential impact it could have on the way we travel. Self-driving cars have the potential to reduce accidents on the road, as well as make transportation more accessible for those who are unable to drive themselves. Plus, imagine being able to work or relax during your daily commute instead of stressing out behind the wheel!
Other exciting car technologies include lane departure warnings, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. These features are designed to make driving safer and easier, and they're becoming more common in new cars.
Of course, with new technologies come new challenges. Cybersecurity and privacy concerns are valid issues when it comes to self-driving cars, and there are still questions around how to best integrate these new technologies into our existing infrastructure.
Overall, however, the future of car technology looks bright. With continued innovation and advancements, we may soon be living in a world where accidents on the road are rare, emissions are minimal, and commuting is a breeze.

2023.06.03 13:47 Snappy_Darko Can you downclock RAM speed in the BIOS for AM5 so that it will run ok?
AM5 DDR5 RAM compatability is pain in a$$ - as this video make
s clear. Its just teething issues I realise, but ive been told that currently (at least for my planned build, for whcih ill use the MSI B650 Mortar) - I should stick with lower-speed ram to ensure it works smoothly - an MSI forum memeber seemed to know what he was talking about here
. Ive therefore selected 5200 G.skill falre x5 (64gb kit - 32 x 2)...but for 10 more dollars I can get some 5600 of the same kit (that suypposedly should work...but the speed is perhaps too high currently - BIOS updates may change this.). My question is whether I would be able to lowelimit the ram speed in the BIOS. For example I get the 5600 and just limit it to run at 5200. Is this possible, would this solve any issues I may have? (and hopefully later on MSI will release a BIOS to improve this issue).

2023.06.03 13:47 crispytree3 How many decks do you/ your play group own.
My playgroup of 16 people including me shares 200 commander decks ranging from pl5-Cedh. We have been doing this since 2017 and obviously the number of decks slowly started to get some what out of control. Tonight when we were playing someone brought up the question of “do you think anyone does something similar to us (sharing decks and such)” . So here I am representing my play group and presenting the question. Before anyone says anything or asks YES we all spend too much money on cardboard.
Decklists and specifics will be provided upon request.

2023.06.03 13:47 wilderCu Leased 2023Highlander Hybrid stolen after 1 month. Insurance not paying full amount.
So we traded in our 2019 Highlander and got a $6500 “discount” for value above the end of lease price. We also paid about $5000 payment on delivery. Total price was around $56k for the vehicle. This is pretty much the MSRP for xle trim.
However, our lease contract just shows the discounted price of $45k as leased vehicle price (trade in isn’t taxable apparently so not included). The insurance company is taking this as the vehicle price for settlement.
This likely makes Toyota “whole” but not us. We have the waiver of depreciation and had hoped to get most of the value back we put in… but I feel we’re about to get screwed on the trade in value.
I’ve emailed and called the insurance company but they can’t seem to hear this pov. Toyota forwarded a screenshot that outlines the discount and other financial info and says it will be sufficient but now won’t answer the phone.

2023.06.03 13:46 Idrialis Call made from Google Voice (desktop) is received as a WhatsApp call. Am I or GV service hacked?
Just as it sound, but before explaining what happens, I'll give you all the details. I live in the Dominican Republic. I have a Google Voice account with a NYC code area number. I have had this number since Google Voice was in beta. I don't live in the US. As a US number is needed for creating the account, back then I used a prepaid phone number I got on Tmobile during a US trip. I don't have that number anymore but set phones and everything to be on mail/desktop/app, etc. No phone on my app is linked. When Hangout was a thing I could make phone calls from the app, but as of today I can't make calls on Google Voice app since I can't link the account to a number. Let's call this GV number: X.
On the other hand, I have two phones:
Secondary phone: iPhone 14 Pro max with · Phone Number B · Phone Number C ·WhatsApp app with Phone Number C. Primary phone: Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra with · Phone Number A: my main phone number, that has NO WhatSapp. · My main whatsApp is with my Google Voice Number, X. · Whatsapp Business with Phone Number B (yes, I use in one phone a WhatsApp account with the number that belongs to the other phone). I hope this is not at all confusing. So, let's go to the issue. As you may know, if you don't use Google voice number frequently, you may lose it. I do use it to receive or make calls, but the other day I spent a month that I didn't use it, so I went to Google Voice's website on Chrome in my laptop and placed a call from Phone Number X (Google Voice), to Phone Number B. Phone Number B is my iPhone. I had my iPhone on my hand, waiting for it to ring, so I could answer the call and let it run for one or two minutes. Instead, Samsung Phone was the one ringing, with an incoming call on WhatsApp B from an unknown number, with a photo on it. I answered and it was me... After all the confusion. I ended the call, and dialed again. The call was incoming through WhatsApp again, with another different number, also with a photo. Repeated the call a third time, the same result. I received the call on WhatsApp from another different number than the previews 2, also with profile pictures that by the way, they looks like stock images photos. Repeated a fourth time. I finally received the call on the phone line B on the iPhone, this time from a local phone number, not known to me. Repeated again, received it on Whatsapp again. Repeated again, received it on WhatsApp. Called again, received in on Phone Number B, and this time the call was from my Google Voice number, finally. Then I tried calling Phone Number C, which has Whatsapp on iPhone. I received the call on WhatsApp C, not on the line.... Called Phone number A, that doesn't have WhatsApp, and received the call as it should be, on the line and from my Google Voice number. Talked to a friend, who also has a Google Voice number with balance, has an Whatsapp with that Google number,, and locals phone numbers with WhatsApp as well. I asked him to try it himself. He was surprised when he received the phone calls on WhatsApp. Tried posting on Google Voice sub, they called it a fake thing and deleted my post immediately. Does this happens because I don't have any US phone number linked to my Google Voice? Is my account hacked? Is Google Voice system twisted? I'm willing to try it with any of you and/or record a video....
