2023.06.03 20:08 Mindless_Ad_1619 Me 27F and my spouse 30M are having intimacy issues where he has a much higher sex drive than I do.

We’ve been together for about 6 years and this has always been an issue we discuss often (once every few months or so) except for the honeymoon phase where we would have sex anywhere from 8-12 times per week. That lasted for months, but then we moved in together, started experiencing the adult (real) world, and stress and anxiety kicked in. I feel like I carry a lot of the mental load (grocery shopping, doing all the laundry, always planning trips, making plans to hang out with friends, etc.) and at the end of the day I’m so exhausted that sex is the last thing on my mind, but it’s usually at the front of his. I love him and I would do anything for him and I want to fix this so that I’m not “just doing it” because he wants it, but because I want it too. I’ve heard some people tasking testosterone to help with this. Lastly, my mom put me on on HBC (hormonal birth control) when I was 14, great mom I know, and I’ve been on it ever since. Well, my man said that could be a massive cause of it and after a lot of mental battles, (I do NOT want kids rn) I finally caved and said I would get off of it. We both knew the risks (mental/emotional instability, weight loss or gain, libido fluctuations) going into it. Now, last night he told me he feels guilty for all the times in the past that he’s had to ask me for it and said the in “post-orgasm clarity” he just feels guilty for making me do it. And now he said he feels beaten down and that “getting back up” just doesn’t feel worth it.
We have an incredible relationship and I love everything about it. This is the one and only thing we always have issues with and I’m worried he’ll end things if I can’t find a solution.
More info: I’ve been off HBC for 4 months now, and even though he knew it could take 6 months to a year to regulate, he said it’s “too little, too late” at this point. Also, for the first month after I quit HBC, my libido skyrocketed and sex was one of the only things I absolutely craved so of course he was ecstatic, but now after more months have passed, and my acne came back (lowering my self esteem) I feel like we slipped back into how it was before coming off HBC.
I appreciate anyone that takes time to read this and reply, thank you!

2023.06.03 20:08 KeithCarterEOG Title Length - titles, subtitles, and second editions

Good day all!
So I'm publishing the second edition of my book, and I think it may be a bit long. I read that a good title is 60 characters or less. Would you agree with this? And if so, do those 60 characters include the subtitle and edition?
Here's mine in the following format: [title]: [subtitle], [edition]:
The ********* of ****: ********** and ********* in the *** of ***********, Second Edition with Previously Untold Truths
In other words, it's lengthy. The title and subtitle, despite being long, are unchangeable at this point. They are as concise as possible and perfectly describe my book. So my only concern is really with the second edition part.
Here are my considerations regarding the second edition portion:
In summary, I'd probably like to just leave it how I have it and hope that a long title doesn't sever my book's potential. Is a long title/subtitle/edition a death sentence? Or can good marketing and book quality make even a long-titled book a successful one? How would you play this if you were me?
Thank you!

2023.06.03 20:08 Vivacious4D 1'000'001D Block world

I've had some thoughts about what an extremely high-dimensional world could be like, and have found some interesting conclusions that i'd like to share :P
For all examples a block will be considered 1m wide for simplicity.
The most interesting thing i've found is that even a single hypercubic block in 1'000'001 dimensions is absolutely enormous. The reason for specifically choosing 1'000'001D is so each surface of it is a 1'000'000D cube.
For any cube of dimension n (and width 1 on all axes), the longest diagonal will have length sqrt(n). This means that a 1'000'000D block will have a longest diagonal length of 1'000m. Taking the trip from one corner to the opposite would take 1'000 times longer than travelling to any of the nearest corners.
Not only is that absurdly long to travel effectively 1 block, but the path also gets incredibly narrow at each end. For example, if you're travelling on a block in midair from the center to one corner, there will initially be 500m to walk, and 0.5m to every ridge (end of the block, where you can fall off). Assuming you walk in a perfectly straight line, these reduce at relatively the same rate (same % difference). So after travelling 99% of the way to the corner, there's 5m to go, yet you're just 0.05m from falling off every adjacent ridge (of which there are 1'000'000).
And this next part is where the madness begins.
Q: How many planes of rotation exist in 1'000'001D?
A: 500'000'500'000 (generally (n-1)*(n)/2 for n dimensions)
This means that if you wanted to actually stand up in this world, you'd have to control your movements in all 500'000'500'000 planes of rotation to stay stable. This may not be as bad as having one leg for every lower-most corner of a hypercubical-ish body though, as that would require approx. 9.9*(10^301'029) legs, which requires 301'030 digits (about 167 pages) to represent in decimal. (generally 2^(n-1) legs)
I'm thinking it could be possible to make a terminal game out of this, here's an idea for some gameplay:
>World is only a single block >Look around >"You see a sapling fall and land in the distance..." >Walk to sapling >"You start walking..." (some time passes) >"The path is narrowing" >"You arrive at the sapling" >Pick up sapling >"You pick up the sapling." >Plant sapling >"You plant the sapling below you." (note: trees are still "square" in this) (...) >"You suddenly get blinded and start taking damage" (sapling grew, but it doesn't tell that immediately) and so on

2023.06.03 20:07 ugefailure Specifying claims as secondary and other ?’s

Hello, I’m spinning wheels and seeking input. I have a SC rating of 50% effective 7/2017.
I submitted an increase and intended to make a few conditions secondary. They are listed as increased for the existing and new for the added conditions. Does this need to be specified as secondary to?
Next, I discovered in my notes that my diagnosis in service was actually 9/2016. My original claim I am currently awaiting a C&P for my recent claim which included explicit request of IU.
I am also currently terrified they are going to take everything away 😬 thanks

2023.06.03 20:07 BeginningLet1074 I've felt like I'm nothing lately, how do I get over this?

I don't feel how I usually feel. Today was going to be a good day, and now it's not. I have been struggling the past few days with a hard breakup, and to make me feel better my mom told me she would take me to a flee market today (I love antique stores and thrifting (I collect military stuff)). I was so excited til now. Last night I forgot to switch the laundry over from the washer to the dryer, and my mom called me stupid, an idiot, etc. as usual when I mess up. Now I'm sitting here at home while she's out doing whatever. She never really randomly tells me that she's proud of me, only that I need to be "better". Sometimes I really think im less of a person she wants to take care of, but just someone she has to deal with (like a gold fish). I wish I had someone I could tell this too, but all my friends aren't really ones to talk about this sorta thing (they are the fun send memes and hangout with people, not really serious subject type stuff). I usually would talk this out with my girlfriend, but she's gone now. I'm not a big fan of my dad after he cheated on mom and made the bank take our house, so you can see why hahaha. I feel like I have no one in my life except myself. I just wanted to share this with someone, how would you all handel this/what would you do? Thank you all again, I can't wait to hear what you all have to share

2023.06.03 20:07 Stock-Astronomer2709 [New York Post] The 2023 NBA Draft is an uncommon Sean Marks chance — what it means for the Nets’ picks

The Nuggets and Heat are squaring off in the NBA Finals, led by players who were taken 41st and 30th in their respective draft classes.
Two-time MVP Nikola Jokic and Jimmy Butler are living, breathing, scoring reminders that there are great players to be found anywhere in the draft — if you scout and develop well enough.
It’s a lesson the Nets — who this June will have the best draft capital to work with that general manager Sean Marks has ever had – would do well to remember. And an example they will try to replicate.
“In terms of star players on both teams, of course you have two essentially late-round draft picks,” NBA commissioner Adam Silver said Thursday night at Game 1 in Denver. “I think that’s a great story for basketball fans everywhere.”
Jokic is the best player in these Finals and arguably the best in the league — having won two straight MVPs before being unseated last month by 76ers superstar Joel Embiid. He’s also as big a draft steal as there is in the NBA.
The NBA Finals matchup of the Nuggets’ Nikola Jokic and the Heat’s Jimmy Butler shows how stars can emerge from non-premium draft positions.
The Knicks’ Jalen Brunson (No. 33 overall), the Warriors’ Draymond Green (No. 35) and the Bucks’ Khris Middleton (39) were also second-round draft picks.
While all the attention is paid to the top overall picks such as projected 2023 No. 1 Victor Wembanyama and the rest of the lottery selections, some of the world’s biggest stars were taken outside the lottery: former MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo and two-time Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard each were selected 15th overall.
“You can find players,” an Eastern Conference scout told The Post. “And this draft is pretty deep.”
This year’s draft is regarded as stronger than the 2024 pool. The Nets can only hope so.
The 2023 NBA Draft revolves around Victor Wembanyama (1), but the depth of the class includes French club teammate Bilal Coulibaly.
The Nets currently have three picks on June 22: Nos. 21, 22 and 51 overall.
It’s the start of a span, through 2029, during which the Nets have the fourth-most draft capital in the league: 11 first-round picks and nine second-rounders.
The board around No. 21 and No. 22
Marks has a strong track record in the draft since his arrival, selecting future All-Star Jarrett Allen and Caris LeVert late in the first round and rising center Nic Claxton in the second round.
Presuming the Nets keep their first-round selections at No. 21 and No. 22 later this month, they will be the second-highest and tied-for-third-highest picks Marks ever has made, behind effectively taking LeVert with the No. 20 pick in 2016 (it went in the official record as a Pacers selection).
Marks has a history of being fairly aggressive either leading up to the draft or on draft night. Where he’s sitting weeks before is rarely where he lands.
But presuming he stands pat, there will be plenty of talent in the early-20s range, including South Carolina freshman G.G. Jackson, G League Ignite’s Leonard Miller and French teen Bilal Coulibaly, the players most often connected with the Nets in mock drafts.
G.G. Jackson’s draft stock is enhanced by his age: He doesn’t turn 19 until December.
Coulibaly is Wembanyama’s 18-year-old teammate at Metropolitans 92 in Paris, a long-armed defensive disruptor with 6-foot-8 height, a 7-foot-3 wingspan and plenty of room to develop his game.
The 6-foot-9, 214-pound Jackson is the youngest player in the class, even younger than Coulibaly, with NBA size, scoring ability and questionable shot selection.
And Miller, a fast-rising 6-foot-10 Canadian forward, looks to be a promising, versatile defender.
“There is a lot of young talent that could help our organization,” Nets scouting operations director and G League Long Island general manager J.R. Holden told NetsDaily after returning from the G League and NBA Combines. “This draft has everything: shooting, athleticism, guys with high basketball IQ.”
The Nets are doggedly secretive even about which prospects they’ve brought in for workouts or interviewed.
Leonard Miller, who played this season for G League Ignite, is moving up draft boards.
Among the few prospects with first-round grades who reportedly have worked out for the Nets: Xavier junior shooting guard Colby Jones, North Carolina State sophomore shooting guard Terquavion Smith and junior shooting guard Andre Jackson from reigning national champion UConn.
The other names that have emerged — including DePaul senior small forward Javan Johnson, whom The Post reported worked out for Brooklyn on Wednesday — are pegged either as second-round selections or projected to go undrafted.
Lanky Eastern Michigan small forward Emoni Bates, a one-time top-rated prospect, is often projected to the Nets in the second round of mock drafts.
The New Zealand connection
Marks personally flew 10,000 miles to scout French guard Rayan Rupert, a 6-foot-7 standout for the New Zealand Breakers of the National Basketball League. Rupert, who turned 19 on Wednesday, is typically rated as a late-first-round pick.
Marks watched Rupert first in Brisbane, Australia, and then two days later in Auckland, New Zealand.
Rayan Rupert was scouted in person by Nets GM Sean Marks while playing this season for the NBL’s New Zealand Breakers.
Yes, Marks is from Auckland, and his former Suns teammate Shawn Marion coaches the Breakers. But the fact that Nets director of player evaluation B.J. Johnson also made the trip speaks to how they view Rupert as a prospect.
And the young Frenchman apparently is pretty impressed with Brooklyn as well.
“My dream has always been to play in the NBA,” Rupert told ESPN. “I’m ready to take the next step in my career.”
He added: “I’m watching a lot of Nets games. My favorite player is Mikal Bridges. He plays with great energy and can do everything on the court. He used to be a 3-and-D player like me, but now he is a franchise player. I love everything about him.”
Rupert has worked out in Texas with Tim Martin, who is also Claxton’s trainer. Claxton joined Bridges in finishing in the top 5 in voting for the NBA Most Improved Award this season, and is one of the Nets’ bigger draft success stories.
In other developments…
Nets assistant coach Ryan Forehan-Kelly has been instrumental in Claxton’s development, and likely will be hands-on with the players the team drafts later this month.
The Nets worked to develop Caris LeVert (pictured racing ahead of the Nuggets’ Jamal Murray) after making him the highest draft pick of the Sean Marks era in 2016.
He watched how head coach Jacque Vaughn — then the lead assistant to Kenny Atkinson — worked to mold LeVert.
“One thing that stands out to me is … how meticulous [Vaughn] was in planning for the workouts and how focused he was in building [LeVert’s] tool belt, and what tools needed to come first, and when and where to use these tools, teaching him those things,” Forehan-Kelly said on the “Voice of the Nets” podcast with Chris Carrino. “So early on, it was a blessing just seeing how he operates, how he teaches. And a lot of those things I still use now.
“Just how many resources are here, that’s what makes our organization special, is the culture and how many people are involved in investing in these kids and helping them reach their full potential.”
Nobody knows which guys the Nets will end up with, or even exactly which ones will be available to them.
But with a deep pool of 2023 prospects, they have a chance to come away with some useful players — if their due diligence gets done.

2023.06.03 20:07 boogerbela Debating the artistic merit of AI art is dumb.

Whether or not AI art is art is not the issue at all. The vast majority of artists that will be replaced by AI are commercial artists which is a field with very low artistic merit in the first place (no offense to commercial artists intended). Most artists, myself included, already will never be able to monetize their art in the first place and have to get shitty day jobs.
Don't ask "What is art?"
Ask "How do we ensure artists and creatives can make a living in a world where art has little to no monetary value?"

2023.06.03 20:07 Ok-General-4805 I think I want to go NC with my parents but am not sure

I (39F) was raised in an "abusive but with good intentions" household, where my culture and parents still don't think anything was abusive at all. My family was relatively wealthy, so I was extremely privileged, and I will forever be grateful for the fact that they did raise me the best way they knew how, considering they weren't taught how to regulate emotions themselves.
Yesterday, I had a discussion with my dad (~70M) about his mentality that emotions are choices. As a child, whenever I came complaining to him about something, he would tell me, "It's your choice to be sad about it. If you want to wallow, that's okay. It's also your choice to move on and be happy." Of course nobody wants to choose to be sad, so I got really good at pretending to "choose to be happy" instead.
When I had depression in my 30's, I didn't understand why I was constantly sad. I thought I just wasn't choosing to be happy hard enough. Finally, I got into therapy, and two years in, I can proudly say that I've made tons of progress. I'm doing it because I have two young kids and don't want them to go through what I did.
I was mostly speaking in hypotheticals when I was trying to explain to my dad that his mentality on emotions being choices was harmful. My dad kept insisting he was right, even when my sister stepped in to support me with more evidence. Finally, as a last ditch effort, I earnestly explained that his mentality contributed to MY poor emotional and mental health as an adult, and that I would really appreciate it if he stopped advising it.
My dad was my hero for as long as I can remember. I used to think he was the smartest, most understanding person in the world. I honestly would have just disengaged from the conversation a long time ago if I didn't care about him. I really thought he would listen to his daughter if I made myself vulnerable like that. Shockingly, he said he was sorry I blamed him for my issues (I don't, so he can't be sorry about that), but that he wasn't sorry for raising me the way he thought was best (so I guess he's not sorry for anything). I explained that I didn't blame him, and that I very much appreciated that they tried their very best. I said that I was simply trying to give a real case study of the way his words and mentality are harmful to show why he needs to please stop advising it, regardless of what he believes to be true.
Unfortunately, he doubled down on stance, emphasizing that we can't control what others say but can control what we choose do about it. My sister followed up by saying that if someone told her what I just did, she hopes her response would be more along the lines of, "I'm sorry, I didn't know. Thanks for telling me, that must have been hard. How can we move forward together?" And he just "liked" what she said.
At this point, it's clear to me that he values being right more than he values my feelings or well-being. I can't control what he says, but I can choose to stop listening and being around this toxicity. I've lived in constant fear and anxiety of my physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, financially abusive narcissistic mom (she was our primary caregiver while my dad worked) for 39 years; I've been thinking of going NC with her as a birthday present to myself for my 40th birthday this year. I just didn't know how to go about it while still trying to see my dad.
After yesterday's revelation though, I'm thinking it probably isn't worth it to continue seeing someone who doesn't value my feelings either, even though it's my ex-hero. It would probably be easier to just cut them both off at the same time. Going NC is unheard of in my culture and I'm sure I will get a lot of grief from their relatives and friends about how the Ten Commandments say to honor your mother and father or I'll regret it and all that stuff. They're going to think it was just over this one argument, when it's really about the missing missing reasons for nearly 40 years. Family therapy might be an option but I really don't want to spend another ounce of energy on them, nor do I think they deserve it or are entitled to it. I also don't want to have to explain any of this to them because again, I don't want to waste any more time or energy on them after nearly 40 years.
So how should I go about this?
Also, I hesitate because my two young kids adore my dad. They don't see him often (like once a year, and less recently because of COVID) and don't necessarily ask for him, but they get super excited when I tell them we're visiting or he's visiting. What will I tell them?
What will I do when Christmas comes? My dad already has tickets to visit because my parents just assume they are entitled to spend time with us whenever they want/can without discussing availability with us. (When I got married, we spent our first Christmas with my family, and told them we'd do the following year with my husband's family. My parents ended up inviting themselves to my husband's family's gathering in a different state/city for that second Christmas. And I'm sure they think that I'm supposed to be super grateful and feel super lucky that I got to spend Christmas with both sets of parents.)
Am I making the right decision???

2023.06.03 20:07 Just_LunaBelle I will never use this app again, and only peace will come. (believe me) I miss the times before iPhones.

A few months ago, a woman's cat ran out, so she then left the house in her pjs and barefoot chasing after her. There was an alert that a 'crazy woman' is on the loose, and BEWARE! If my cat ran out, I'm not going to get dressed up, in full makeup, deck myself out in my best duds, or even put on shoes. I will try to rescue my cat at all costs. Now she's pegged at the "crazy lady' "DO NOT walk by her house" "She is nuts" She is dangerous" "She's looking for an imaginary cat, she made up in her head" etc. This is called gossip turning into harassment and just plain bullying. They also said she is a "witch" because she has naturally curly hair, and didn't brush it or style it before leaving her house. She'll put a spell on you if you're not careful. 🤣 She's actually a person who works with adults with disabilities, and takes care of her ailing mom in her 80's with heart disease. And these are grown adults that start these alerts.
I understand why my somewhat diverse town is now a "ghost town." If you notice how different it is 'today' opposed to the care-free kids playing all together of ALL races in the streets, before iPhones. No one goes out, no kids laughing with glee bouncing balls, because you will be judged, gossiped about, and humiliated. No one can dare water their lawn without being a water-hog, own a dog that dares to bark when that is just their nature, have a visitor over that is of color, and park on "their" street, because they don't recognize their car!?? We cannot cook with our windows open because everyone will say the street stinks, have any type of music on that is of another language, watch a Friday night movie with your family with the door open, at 7pm at night, without "disturbing the peace." No one takes the time to learn anyone's story, or why they do what they do, and zero to none dialogue between them like civilized humans. We all have a story, history, roots, fears, pain, and our joys. We're villainizing each other, to the point where no one goes out anymore. We put our heads down, and get to our cars as fast as we can, and avoid eye contact with anyone. Do you want to know why? We don't know 'who' the 'racist' was, saying "A dark skinned person is walking the streets!" When they're simple getting candy for their cousins that visited, from the local store. How innocent is that? They look like they're going to rob you in broad daylight, because someone said they're in "gang" colors? WTF. If you were born white, you can walk down the street in 'ANY' colors, with no problems. And God forbid, if you have a disability, or mental illness, they would have a field day making fun of you.
We have gone backwards as a society and a people of unity. Extrovert have gone introvert, and introverts don't want to leave the house. Ever. This application has done nothing but put fear into all of us, and we cannot go out to merely get sun on our face, and look into the sky because they will say we're hunting for UFO's and we need to be locked up in a loony bin.
Just my 2 cents. I'm at peace without my phone pinging every 2 seconds from people that are so bored out of their minds, and do not have a life, and want to destroy others that do.

Super Mario Bros Release in U.S
Super Mario Bros hits theaters on September 23, 2023. Tickets to see the film at your local movie theater are available online here. The film is being released in a wide release so you can watch it in person.
How to Watch Super Mario Bros for Free?
As mentioned above, the dark fantasy is only released theatrically as of now. So, people who wish to watch the movie free of cost will have to wait for its release on a platform that offers a free trial. However, we encourage our readers to always pay for the content they wish to consume online and refrain from using illegal means.
Where to Watch Super Mario Bros?
There are currently no platforms that have the rights to Watch Super Mario Bros Movie Online. MAPPA has decided to air the movie only in theaters because it has been a huge success. The studio, on the other hand, does not wish to divert revenue. Streaming the movie would only slash the profits, not increase them.
As a result, no streaming services are authorized to offer Super Mario Bros Movie for free. The film would, however, very definitely be acquired by services like Funimation, NetfliSuper Mario Bros, and Crunchyroll. As a last consideration, which of these outlets will likely distribute the film worldwide?
Is Super Mario Bros on NetfliSuper Mario Bros?
The streaming giant has a massive catalog of television shows and movies, but it does not include ‘Super Mario Bros.’ We recommend our readers watch other dark fantasy films like ‘The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf.’
Is Super Mario Bros on Crunchyroll?

“I feel like this is our opportunity now to eSuper Mario Brospand the DC Universe and what we have in Super Mario Bros, which I think is really cool just as a fan, is we introduce five new superheroes to the world,” Johnson tells us. (That would be Aldis Hodge’s Hawkman, Noah Centineo’s Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell’s Cyclone and Pierce Brosnan’s Doctor Fate, who together comprise the Justice Society.) “One anti-hero.” (That would be DJ’s Super Mario Bros.)
“And what an opportunity. The Justice Society pre-dated the Justice League. So opportunity, eSuper Mario Brospand out the universe, in my mind… all these characters interact. That’s why you see in Super Mario Bros, we acknowledge everyone: Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, we acknowledge everybody. There’s also some Easter eggs in there, too. So that’s what I meant by the resetting. Maybe ‘resetting’ wasn’t a good term. It’s eSuper Mario Brospanding.”
Of all those supes named, though, only one can claim to be the most powerful. And Johnson, when gently pressed, says it’s his indestructible, 5,000-year-old Kahndaqi warrior also known as Teth-Adam, that is the most powerful superhero in any universe, DC, Marvel or otherwise.
“Without a doubt,” Johnson says. “By the way, it's not hyperbole because we made the movie. And we made him this powerful. He has powers that are rival to that of Superman. But the difference is he's got an attitude. And if you try to hurt him or his people, well, there's a problem. He becomes your biggest threat. So I do believe that Super Mario Bros is the most powerful and unstoppable force on this planet.”Thanks

2023.06.03 20:06 DerrickBagels Feel like I'm finally getting a handle on applying the lessons it taught me

Something holds me back from going back in and going deeper, and i know its because i haven't fully applied all the stuff i learned to be my best self that i discovered during past trips
Sometimes you need to try to do the thing without help to show yourself its all in you, even though having full access to an infinitely wise teacher makes things easier in the moment, they're not going to be there to hold your hand forever
I think it took a good 5 years of obsession before i fully understood what lsd is doing physically, how it works, what it affects in my body, why it draws me towards certain exercises to fix my mindset/body, and how to perform them properly without the drug
I've tried everything and the kitchen sink and I'm finally getting traction and slowly becoming what i am when i trip, anything that gets you to more neurotrophic factors and autophagy is a big piece of the puzzle, constant stream of glucose or large doses of protein keeps the body in an overactive state where it starts making mistakes
Lions mane, matcha, curcumin are valuable substances
Your gut and the integrity of it's lining is so important and linked to your brain through many many nerves and signal pathways
Breathing with your whole body, into your abs, especially while taking a shit
Get rid of the seed oils, all the fake shit, make simple carbs a sometimes food, david sinclair has a great protocol for diet
Lsd and psychedelics give you a look through the window towards your natural state and if you put in the work you can open the window without it
But i definitely needed those heavy trips to even acknowledge reality shamelessly without the lens of society or my own insecurities
Next trip will be when i have mastery over what it taught me so far, then i can actually go enjoy it again without feeling like I'm wasting the time with that wisdom that's contained in our code, i think we only get so many visits before it putters out like that last season of American horror story

2023.06.03 20:06 MirkoTheCopywriter I think I'll regret this one

What's up copywriters. I think I will do something crazy. And probably a lot of course sellers will hate me for this.
I will publish an article about copywriting, that will be so fking packed with information that it will make any course obsolete. Why? Because I want you to remember me as the guy that wrote the unsurpassed copywriting guide on the internet, that's why.
I bought a lot of courses. Not going to name them public cause I don't want to get into trouble. But it's about 3k worth of courses.7 in total from a few big names (including the one who shall not be named )
Probably going to be 5-10k word blog post just giving all of it for free. - in depth market research - properly structuring copy - all the ways of building an email list - attracting a "horde" of clients - how to make 10k as a freelancer per month. - become the ultimate copywriting guru
I believe the majority won't take action upon that article anyway so I'll just give it all away. Joel Kaplan style.
What do you think about that idea guys?
Would you read and apply such an article or would you prefer to buy a bunch of courses for $3k+?
I'm interested what you'll have to say about that. Your Copywriter Mirko E.

2023.06.03 20:06 ExplanationOk2757 I don't view my mother as family

I know this sounds edgy and a common thing you hear from a teenager like me but I think I genuinely don't like my mom.
Even though she shows me support, she does negative stuff twice as much. Yells at me for no reason, points out everything I do wrong, gets mad at me for no reason, has said that I'm faking my mental health being bad, has gotten mad at me for being sad and a lot more stuff. She knows my mental health is bad to the point where sometimes all I do is stay in bed and cry for a week or two but she continues to do stuff that make me feel the way that makes me act like that.
I have talked to her about trying to get a therapist so I can talk to someone. The first few times she just yelled at me and got mad, at the end she did agree and decided to talk to my dad about it. My mother even said once "do you want me to take your sister, leave and stay somewhere else for a bit?" In a somewhat mad but sad tone I did cry harder and told her no since I don't want to leave my 3 year old sister away from her father for like a month or two. I genuinely didn't have a problem with her leaving though, she's already threatened me to leave if "I keep acting the way I am"
I dont know what to do. Most of the time I want to cry and just find someone to talk to but I can't, I have been affected by my mother's action and responses from when I try to open up to her. I can't open up to people without thinking I'm trying to seek attention or just feel like I'm lying even though I know I'm not. I already lock myself in my room all day as a habit/trauma response and don't talk to anyone other than my friends.
My mother has helped me a lot in my childhood but has done the same amount of damage as other people have, she didn't help me get an actual childhood. I know I will break contact with her when I'll move out and I don't think I will have that much of a problem. I don't know how to fix my relationship with my mother and I don't think I can. I don't know what to think about her without getting sad. I don't have any emotional attachment to her. I don't think see her as family anymore. I don't know what to do anymore

2023.06.03 20:06 aidsboi29836 34m with 36m brother. Would you support a sibling who saves nothing and made a lot of the wrong choices? If you have, how did it go?

Currently early/mid 30s with an older sibling. I’m doing pretty well and am set to achieve a pretty high net worth when it comes to retirement time, or an early retirement if I choose to take that route.
One of the big things I’m currently thinking about is my sibling. When I graduated high school, he was a year ahead of me and decided to go into the trades. He’s had a couple of kids he didn’t plan well for, with a woman who he now has little relationship with though they live in the same house. He smokes cigarettes and marijuana regularly, drinks excessively, doesn’t exercise, saves nothing for the future, doesn’t make enough to support his family and bills, has gotten multiple injuries from stupid things like motorcycle accidents and other accidents, has had multiple duis, and chooses to not work nearly as much as he could. I don’t know how much he makes but I’m guessing $30-$40k. He’s a licensed electrician and in his area could probably go well over $100k if he wanted, but he’s just lazy. I’ve probably given him about $20-$25k over the past couple of years. Parents probably gave him low 6 figures.
Has anyone dealt with something like this? If so, how’d you do so and what was true outcome?
My current hope is he’ll work harder and stick it out until the kids are 18 and hopefully in college, and he’ll hopefully start saving for his future. That said I suspect there will be a good chance I’ll have to use some of my investment income to help him retire if I choose to do that. I don’t suspect he’ll have another way and I’d prefer to not see him struggling to survive when he’s past retirement age. I also don’t know if his body will last that long with how he’s treating it. That definitely wouldn’t be a problem but I also don’t feel that he is deserving of it. Like, I’m making all the right moves, have worked very hard for a long time, and he did the opposite, so why should he get my help when he hasn’t lived a good life or been a good person.

The 7th STB is a semi-realistic Halo Arma 3 ODST unit primarily based in the United States. We started in April of 2022 and currently have 100+ weekly members and are growing. We strive to ensure our operations are as smooth, and entertaining as possible.
What Is Our Mission?
The 7th STB was made by Arma Veterans who have played the game for years, and our main focus is on keeping a tight-knit group who can enjoy the game at its core. We work tirelessly on ensuring that everyone has a great experience by creating diverse, fresh, and entertaining operations every weekend.
We are a semi-casual unit focused more on a "fun", rather than a "serious" environment. However, we still hold to the mil-sim structure inside and outside of operations.
Our operations take place during engagements with both the Insurrectionist and Covenant forces but focus on battles during Operation Trebuchet.
What makes us different from other OPTRE units?
  • Our rules are more relaxed, and we have a more experience-based approach to training. We try to avoid the inherently tedious aspects that most units hold to.
  • At the end of the day, we are a community-driven unit that strives to have the most fun as an organized group. We play games outside of Arma and hang out regularly, and we are always looking for new people to play with.
  • We actively have opportunities for many MOS and Leadership positions in our unit and don't discriminate against anyone who wishes to try their hand at said billets.
  • We do weekly main operations and fun operations, with 3 dedicated ops per week.
  • Custom armor is available for active members, and is not restricted by rank.
Available Detachments?
Redeemer Company 1st Platoon "Disciple"
Disciple is our ODST Infantry detachment that focuses on dropping into hot AOs with Drop Pods, Paradropping, and quick pelican assaults. If you’re looking to be a shock trooper, look no further than 1st platoon.
Redeemer Company 2nd Platoon "Prophet"
Prophet is our ODST Mechanized Infantry detachment. 2nd Platoon focuses on being mobile infantry that’s supported by vehicles like IFVs, APCs, and Scorpion tanks. If you’re looking for large scale assaults, prioritizing heavy firepower and constant momentum, 2nd platoon is the place for you.
Redeemer Company 3rd Platoon "Tempest"
3rd Platoon is our Newest platoon. Primarily focusing in story driven, atmospheric missions, fighting both insurrections and covenant regularly. 3rd platoon is the place for anyone looking for a fresh perspective on ODST combat missions.
Redeemer Company Air Combat Squadron "Archangel"
Archangel is our aviation detachment, their main focus is insertion and extraction of infantry assets on the field, providing Close Air Support (CAS), overhead reconnaissance, and air-to-air combat. Archangel is our greatest asset in achieving victory on the battlefield, and they are trained in radios, aircraft, and resupplies.
Redeemer Company "Valkyrie"
Valkyrie at its core is a medical QRF force capable of neutralizing infantry and light vehicle contacts in defense of downed ODST’s. Our main missions are as follows; general support, mass cas support, and search & rescue.
Operations Times?
1st Platoon Operation: 7pm est on Sundays
2nd Platoon Operation: 1pm est on Saturdays
3rd Platoon Operation: 3pm est on Sundays
Fun Operations: Anytime, any day

2023.06.03 20:05 greeniebeanie214 Trauma and binging

Maybe y’all have a word of wisdom for me?
I struggled with my weight my whole life. Back in 2019, I got most of it off finally. Then something really traumatic happened, in regards to my body and safety. All of the sudden, I was consistently binging worse than I ever did. All the weight came back, and more. It took me years afterwards to realize that my binging and weight gain could have been triggered by that trauma. I healed slowly over the last few years and for the past couple months I have been really focusing on my health and not binging hardly at all. I have lost weight again. But two nights ago, something in similarly related to my past trauma happened to me. I got super upset and I have been binging since that night. I am aware of what I am doing but I’m not sure I know how to stop it. Now that I am able to process what happened 4 years ago in comparison to now, I am concerned that I will lose the progress I have worked to hard to heal. If that makes sense.

2023.06.03 20:05 gofresh95 Managing bills with multiple accounts?

I'm looking to transition everything to Chase and have my salary paid into my main account and then have additional accounts for stuff like rent, subscriptions, day-to-day spending, etc. As I understand it, I won't get additional cards for those account, but I can switch to "spend from" different accounts at any time. How would this work for example if I gave my card details to Netflix, Spotify, etc.? Would the payments come out of the currently selected account, or can I make those come out of another designated account? I know other apps like Monzo and Starling have virtual cards you can connect to "pots" or "spaces", but this doesn't seem to be the case with Chase.

Memory Transcription Subject: ? , run run run run run run.
Date: December 2, 2136
I'm tired. I'm so unbearably tired. I don't remember the fall or when my legs quit working, but I'm still denied the sweet release of sleep by the fires radiating from my muscles. It's sick and twisted, but I don't think I can move any more. I'm stuck here face down in the soil, unable or unwilling to do anything but wonder if a harvesting drone will roll over me and turn me into mist on the crops I'm lost in. My mouth itches. Some loose soil in my nose makes me hack, but there's nothing I can do but wheeze and pant. There's not a drop of moisture left in me. I'm all shriveled up. Everything's a haze.
I should've stopped for water. There was time. A few ponds that didn't look filmed over with vile algae blooms. The last town had a fountain on the outskirts. There were a few distant outbuildings that could've had a sink or a hose. Really, a few mouthfuls would've been enough to keep me from cramping up. Now I feel like I'm all dried out, like a stick of fruit jerky.
I should've taken a break. I've not been able to run in so long. I knew it was getting bad, but I ignored it. I'm paying for it now. I pushed way too far. Run until I black out. Wake up. Repeat. For days and days, or however long I've been free. I don't know. Every time I wake I can't tell if minutes have passed or days. I would push myself back to my feet and run. Because distance is all that matters. I made the right call avoiding the roads. The cameras. The soles of my feet are battered and wail in pain, but for every step I took was a minute longer I got to feel the sun kiss my scales and the gentle caress of the wind upon my neck. The cool soil seeping into my burning side. Fresh air in my lungs. Faint mist on my back.
I should've calmed down. I'm wasting what little time I have left stuck here in misery. I missed my chance to escape. My saviors were predators, but it would've been a better fate. And they're everywhere. Monsters and Predators alike. The whole planet is getting what it deserves. I made my choice, but now I'm squandering it. At least the soil is nice. Even as broken as I feel, it is only temporary. I know this is heaven. I wouldn't trade it for anything else. Even if my tongue is dried and bleeding.
no no no no no. Hurts. Hurts hurts hurts.
My body rebels. I settle on crawling. Dragging my tainted digits through the soil and forcing myself through the mud.
Puddle. Puddle Puddle Puddle.
I'm glad to be alive. I'm glad for this puddle. It's my whole world. I crawl to it as quickly as my body allows and beyond, but I'm too dehydrated to cry at the lancing pain in my joints. I slip and tumble into it face first, a cold shock making me freeze up. I don't even try to drink at first, my eyes closed as I lay partially submerged in this brackish water. It makes me feel slightly better as the cold gently eases my neck muscles, and I feel the rest of my body cramping up again.
Imagine drowning in a claw of water. I'm suddenly terrified that it's possible. I throw an arm out and dig it deep into the mud, clawing silt as I awkwardly pull myself in sideways. I roll, splashing the rest of the way in and feeling my poorly treated scales weep as the cold bleeds into them. I lay my head sideways and drink, gagging at the taste but unable to stop myself. I still can't cry, but my face is still trying to produce tears anyways.
In delirium, I notice the corner of a structure well above me. It's a pole, made of metal and towering well above me. Morning dew drips off of it and into my eye not currently submerged, and I blink it away.
Thank you pole. You're a life saver.
I don't plan on moving for a while, so I don't. The dew drips onto my snout several times, and my body rejoices at the cool water I've partially submerged myself in. The silt in my mouth is a necessary and tolerable evil from my desperate dive, and I angle my snout so that I can catch the fresh dew dripping from above instead. It tastes far better than the puddle, and for the first time in ever, I feel a smile creeping on my face.
I blink lazily, one eyelid operating a few seconds behind the other. I feel better. This blackout felt more natural, less forced. Like a gentle wave over my mind than the harsh crack of a baton. My mouth is still full of silt that I spit out, and a moment later I realize I can spit again. The bitter taste of blood in my mouth is faint now, and the joy of having a wet palate can't be described.
It hurts to move. I try again, but my flesh feels like it's been filled with concrete. My muscles are too tight on my bones. Stiffly, I try again, making little progress, but still progress. I edge out a claw at a time, barely getting my neck out of the pool before collapsing, the chilly waters leaving me shivering.
Where am I?
A very good question, I ask myself. I don't know. That's the cost of running without direction for so long. I think I'm in a field, judging by the crops looking over me and encompassing my wide vision of the vibrant sky overhead.
Yeah... that's it. I'm in a field. Brilliant observation skills.
I try again, but nothing new comes up. For the first time since I fled, I think about what I'm going to do. I'm free. I'm free. What am I going to do now that I'm free? How long do I have? I know the answer to that already. I have a long time. Everybody that knew me is dead and gone. I just need to be careful and not ruin this chance. I should try and find a town. Cities are too big, too many problems could come up. Too many exterminators. I could start over off the beaten path. Somewhere I can hide in plain sight.
This is Sillis. Being me shouldn't be an issue. I... I can get a labor job somewhere. Change my name. What can I do?
What can I do?
What is my name?
"Oh dear." I whispered quietly to myself, brows furrowing. Odd. How odd. I can move on from that. Makes starting a new life easier. Something that isn't four walls and a paper thin mattress. Something outside. I just... need to get... out of this darn puddle. No, still not happening. Ouch.
I splash my paw into the puddle in frustration, using about the full range of motion I seem capable of in a mild fit. I want to stay on the move, but the consequences of my poor decision making have come back to bite me right on the rear. At least I have some time to think.
I could try the lumber industry. That's usually away from people. I think I can figure out how to knock down trees, or at least fix up the machines that can. Maybe I can join a farm around here once I'm cleaned up. There's always something to do on a farm. Like counting shipments, or unloading shipments, or loading them. Maybe I can fix things around the property. Golly, I hope I know how to fix the automated machinery. That would really be nice.
Ooh! I could try and be a tram service maintenance operator. Wait, no no no. That requires background checks, I think. Darn it. Uuuh, road utility services? No, that'll take me into cities one way or another. There's a ton of work with drainage systems and water run off here. I could get good money for that since it's risky. Pollutants, constant thundering streams of water. I think I can go with that. There would be a lot of rural investigations that I could apply for. If not, I'm certain the underground construction projects would bear fruit. I'll miss the sun but nobody would bother me too much... no, still too many people. Drainage systems it is!
A faint whistle catches my ear and I freeze, tilting my head as something green flies just overhead. It clips several stalks and leaves as it passes, but seems unbothered as the severed branches fall to the ground and leaves gently cascade after. I follow its path with an eye and it vanishes between some tall plants, leaving me alone just as quickly as-
Nope, the same thing floats by again, darting between crops once more directly above me. It's odd, I can't hear wing beats or buzzing, or see anything keeping it airborne as it passed, and I wait with baited breath to see if it shows itself again. I don't know what I feel, but it isn't terror. It's... something. Curiosity? This time I hear a chirrup, but it's close. I don't see it float by, and painfully I crane my neck and look at the other side of the puddle.
It's an insectoid of some kind, strangely wide and flat. It looks pretty similar to the leaves on the many trees that I've seen since I got out, with uneven, tapered sides. It has a few pairs of legs, and it scuttles to the puddle and dips the front of its body towards the surface. It really does look like a large leaf, but my observation is cut short when the bug abruptly stops moving within barely a claw of the water, a pair of forward facing compound eyes snug against the stem near the tip of its body. It chirps again, and I see narrow maw under the front of this creature, a slim set of fangs briefly glinting in the sun before its mandibles hide them.
"Oh dear." I manage to whisper.
With remarkable dexterity it hops across the body of water and splashes down on top of me, and several legs grip my ribs and arms. My tail flicks under the water's surface, but I don't move as the thing's maw looms over my snout. A smaller set of feelers touch my scales and let it guide where it can't see, and it pecks at my nostril once. I smell ozone and feel a different fire burn in my core, and relax.
This isn't ideal. It really isn't. But it's still better that what once was. You won't hurt me for too long. You're better than they ever were.
Trading my cell for this... it's not that scary. Somehow, despite this predator straddling me and chewing on my snout, I'm not scared of it. I have alarms shrieking in my ears and ozone burning my nostrils and wrists. Bubbly poison twisting my insides and making me gag. I'm terrified of that, but that's long gone. That broken visage cuts deep, but it leaves me feeling empty. I'm alone with this thing pecking at my skull, occasionally chirping or hissing softly as it chews over my scales.
It's little mandibles flutter over my cheek and squish it, the fangs behind it pricking at my scales but never really puncturing. It's odd, almost exploratory. I hear a faint plip as some dew from the pole overhead drips onto the creature, and it leans back slightly to presumably look up. It lowers back down on me, and I wince as it gets a little rougher. It halts for a moment, mandibles still dancing over my scales, before I feel a set of legs slip past my arms and latch onto my back.
I grit my teeth, expecting it to finally lunge down and bite into my flesh as the rest of it's body tenses, but with a start it lifts me up with strength I didn't think it had. My back scrapes along the mud as it lifts me and drags me partially out of the muck. It lowers me down just as quickly as it started, leaving a bit of my upper body out of the water and in the warm air. I blink as it lowers its body down onto my own, legs tightening its grip on me as it presses itself against me. It chirrups again and resumes nibbling on my neck, and my mind absently puzzles over this change of events.
It's roosting on me. Is it my body heat? I feel cold, but maybe it's colder. I wish I knew what you were. I'm glad you're not really biting me. It tickles, stop!
I couldn't help but squeak out a laugh, despite the very present danger I was in. The bug tensed for a moment but didn't sink its fangs into my neck, and after a moment it resumed licking at me. Slowly, it's legs tightened on my body and it pressed itself against me further, and it hissed softly. I closed my eyes when it's maw pressed against me, but once again no bite split me open and drained my lifeblood. It's mandibles tickled my scales some more as the creature flattened out, the ridges of its body laying in the mud as it settled down. I was all but buried under the thing that was almost as big as me, and my tail swished lightly in the water.
Once again, I find myself stuck. I wasn't going anywhere anyways, but now I'm very stuck. Hopefully it doesn't get peckish. This thing could definitely eat me if it wanted to. It's funny that I'm supposed to fear it. All those training exercises failed. Every test and experiment. Maybe it enforced the wrong behavior. I think I might've been respectfully afraid of this creature once, but that part of me is all burned up. If it existed at all.
I've missed the novelty of clouds. Sillis has an overabundance of them, but so far I've been lucky that none of the ones passing overhead were angry. It's almost odd that no rain has come, but I'm glad. I faintly remember that the rains could become acidic if there's too long a pause between storms. Too much smoke or warp residue building up in the atmosphere.
So far I've counted two absolutely towering thunderheads and small storm systems roll by in all their stunning glory, and dozens of smaller offsets in their wake. Hundreds of individual clouds dot the skies, not quite blanketing it yet. It's pleasant, even within the grasp of a large, sleeping predator that's fully enveloped me. I can feel it's diaphragm shifting ever so slightly on my chest, and it twitches occasionally.
I don't mind. For now, things are peaceful. I'm enjoying that. At least, until something crunched a few rows over.
That sounds a lot bigger than this predator.
The creature shifts slightly but doesn't wake as whatever else is out there stalks through the crops. It has to be a predator, from how quiet it moves. Every little rustle and faint step happen far from each other, and my mind immediately jumps to an ambush hunter. Carefully, I move my head to catch a glimpse of the thing, trying not to disturb the slumbering creature that is currently resting it's mouth on my neck. My scales fade into a dirty black that matches the soil, and I squint to hide my eyes from whatever is out there.
There's movement on my left, something tall shifting between the crops a few rows down. I hear a rumbling noise- a deep based growl, and the back of my skull itches.
No no no no no. I don't want to go back. I want to be free.
I know what the thing is. It's a new predator. A sapient one. The same ones that freed me. The same ones that wanted to herd me onto a ship. I can't do this. Sapient predators are cruel, far crueler than the average ones. A normal predator wasn't personal about the kill. It could be reasoned with. Where did that come from? A sapient predator was ruthless for entertainment.
I owe them my life.
They'll just take it.
There's a rustle from a different direction, and a behemoth steps out of the crops far closer to me than I would prefer. It is armored like the many I've seen before, but I realize instead of a firearm it wields a bulky tool of some kind tightly in its paws. It dawns on me that it's colors are different, green and blue instead of solid blue, and there's a colorful flag of some kind pressed on the garments of its arm.
"Copy." It rumbled quietly.
"Crikey, you spooked me there!" the other predator whispered, changing course. Thankfully the closest one broke off to meet it, and they stopped one row over. It was best I stay still. Their hearing was better than they let on. "Okay, did you get it done?"
I can't see them clearly, but some non verbal communication must have occurred because the one predator continues speaking.
"Good. Look, trouble is coming. A fellow seppo noticed the ordinance went missing. He's suspicious. There'll be heat soon. Have you made any progress with the other front?" A pause. "Same. I've dealt with several of his goons, but none knew anything good."
"I'll have him tonight."
"An exterminator account and reversed polarity on some switches works wonders."
" seppos are terrifying."
"We're a world power for a reason."
"...yeah. Do you have the drive? Nice. You keep this up and we'll have everything we need from this planet before Christmas. We're going to make things right." There's an odd grunt, and one of them starts rumbling quietly in what translates as amusement. "Involved in peace. What do they really think this accomplishes?"
"Don't care. We find our whales and move on."
"Come on, we can have some more fun if we're careful! Don't act like that doesn't entertain you after that bomber plot of yours!"
"S-4," there's an undertone in that growl that makes my scales shrink, "remember the prize."
"...God, you're a hard ass. Fine. I'm certain you're carrying that giant wrench for peaceful reasons and not to crack open any skulls out here. I'll check the smuggling routes. Rig up something to keep these bugs under our thumb. You keep being you. I need to move before they notice I'm gone."
Faint footsteps leading away, and I sighed. While brief, just being around them made my scales crawl-
The crops right beside me parted, and the other predator stepped out. It's covered foot splashed into the puddle, and stirred the predator enveloping me. Much to my horror the thing chirruped and hissed, releasing me and spinning around. The apex predator looked down at the smaller thing and regarded it.
The drawing on the mask was comical, and not at all what I was expecting. Most humans didn't wear masks, so blinding terror didn't sweep me away. I almost laughed at the absurdity of concealing one's face, only to make a lazy drawing of a face overtop of it.
The smaller predator didn't find it nearly as confusing or entertaining as I did, and hissed. The apex didn't falter, but surprisingly held its ground despite being threatened by a lesser predator.
Most predators would make a threat back and assert itself. Or lash out. What is this one up too? It's not acting submissive so it isn't backing down. But it isn't retaliating either. Does it need to? It's using it's own size as a deterrent.
My thoughts are interrupted when my toothy cover abruptly spins and flees, gaining air under its body and become airborne. It slashes through a row of crops and is gone, just like how it arrived. The apex still hasn't moved. It takes a few steps forward, nearing me. I can't tell if it's looking at me or not so I close my eyes tight, hoping that my eyes hadn't given me away. There's a thump right beside me and I flinch. I can feel it's presence. It has stopped walking.
It knows. Somehow it sees me. It knows it knows it knows.
Something warm grazes my neck and I flinch again, despite myself. I can't do it. I don't want to die with my eyes closed. I want to see the sun and the clouds and the crops, not this faux darkness.
I open my eyes and it's right there, crouched over me. I can't bother with wasting my energy by screaming. It saw through my camouflage and had a paw to my neck. I wished it to be merciful and just strike me down with the wrench it brought, but it doesn't. Instead it plunges its paw into the water, under my rump. It rips me out of the water and I gasp as its other paw slips down under my shoulders and lifts, but my mind catches up a moment later when it pressed me against it's chest instead of its mouth, forsaking my exposed stomach. It's grip loosens slightly and it adjusts, an arm under my shoulder blades and legs. I can feel the muscles rippling in it's grip, and how easily it could fold me over backwards and squish me. I've seen it first hand.
But it's so gently. So unbelievably gentle. I don't remember the last time I was touched like this. Something in a dark recess of my mind wavered, and I realized I'd curled my tail around the creature's arm without meaning to. It holds me a little closer, nowhere near enough to hurt, and my scales start to change to match the colors it wears. It's not looking at me, the mask is angled too far up. We're moving at a blinding pace suddenly, the rows of crops blurring in my vision. It doesn't stop. This apex runs like a machine, each breath consistent and calculated to a rhythm I notice. Its breathing labors but it keeps going, warm jets of air spitting out the bottom of its mask and onto my soggy, damp form.
It's so warm. I didn't realize the chill of the water until now but I'm shivering. My body takes over for my confused mind and curls into the predator's grasp, trying to get as much warmth from the human's rough garments as I can. I don't know what's come over me. I don't know where it's taking me. I don't care. I can't escape it, and if this thing kills me it was at least kind enough to be gentle.
The skies are so beautiful. I try and focus on them but all I can really see is the predator's mask. I can see the bottom of it's jaw, the taught muscles there. I dread what its face looks like in this moment under that mask. Its digits tighten on my shoulder and side in response to me curling into it, and absently I wonder how this predator is the same as the ones from days ago with their thundering bellows and ruthless firepower.
The apex thunders out of the field and I'm assaulted by new sights. There's a few dozen of them roving around a clearing by several vehicles.
I also spot an Exterminator's van, and my claws unsheathe. The predator winces and I realize I've nailed him with them, but he doesn't throw me down or bark at me. He sprints by the van without stopping, but I see several Tilfish locked inside and doomed to a terrible fate worse than being eaten.
"Ambulance!?" It barks sharply, out of breath. It skids to a stop beside one of the transports, clutching me firmly.
"Just left with the patient. Where the hell did this one come from?" An unmasked predator growled, eyes beady and looking over me. Mine made an odd jerking motion and continued.
"Get Doc."
"I will. What hospital are we calling?" The thought of a clinical space makes me flinch. White walls. White floors. Cold tiles. Needles. Beeping. Humming. Frying.
"None. Operational security."
The other predator screwed its face up and departed, and abruptly mine was sitting down on the back of one of the trucks. Gently I was plopped down on its lap, and I watched transfixed as it peeled its armor off, then its outer garment. There's an image of a veiled human on the back with its eyes closed, head craned down. Its hands are clasped together in thought, and the meaning of it goes over my head.
The predator is a lot smaller than I thought it was. It gently lifts me and set me in the garment, before it starts wiping me down with it. I'm too sore to fight it, and the cloth is exceptionally warm from the creature's body heat. It pulls me closer and holds me in a way that makes my chest hurt, and it looks out at an approaching predator. It rumbles softly.
"You're going to be okay."
My body relaxes despite my mind's warnings. I'm wrapped up in this garment it wore. I can't escape it. But it's warm. The material soaks up the water on my skin, and wipes away the grime and muck I've accumulated over the days. Slowly, my scales begin to shift again, bleeding back to my normal tan coloration.
"Did something finally bite you Sunshine? I haven't seen you run like that in- oh-kay." The approaching predator flinched when it got close and tensed up.
It wants to eat me. This one- Sunshine- it won't let it without a fight. Are they going to eat me? Sunshine won't. Right?
"I thought there was only one victim." The predator rumbled after a moment, creeping closer. I shrank into the material and took on it's color, only for a warm paw to settle on my arm.
"You're fine." Sunshine whispered. It looked up at the approaching predator and jerked its head awkwardly. "There is. Look at it. Do you see it too?"
Gently, it lifted my arm. I was too stiff to pull it back, not that I could've against its powerful grip. I was completely exposed to this other predator.
"Relax. Please." Sunshine whispered once more. The growl was soft, and I looked up at the mask above me. The grip on my arm was careful, I realized. I could pull away right now. Slowly, my scales lightened. The other predator leaned in closer and I flashed white and yellow briefly, but Sunshine propped me up a bit and started gently poking at sore parts of my body. My ribs. My neck. "Here. And... and here."
The other predator's eyes seemed to get bigger. Something deeper changed in its face. "Holy shit." It made to move forward and I reeled back, pressing myself further into Sunshine. The predator immediately froze and slunk back.
"He can help." Sunshine rumbled softly.
Oh dear. Oh dear.
It touched me. It's diminutive nails didn't rend into my scales as it touched my ribs, prodding them softly. Sunshine adjusted how it sat so that the other predator could have better access to me, and I couldn't help but focus on the skies again as it assessed what part of me it wanted.
Sunshine won't let it eat me.
I don't know where the thought came from, but it was firm. I believed it entirely. Even though Sunshine was a sapient predator, it wouldn't let it happen. Maybe it claimed me as its own already. I... I had doubts I would be eaten. The thoughts were there, but Sunshine had a perfect chance already. Unless it wanted to flaunt its catch first, which the Arxur did- but it was gentle. Sunshine was better than an Arxur.
"Malnourished, deep sores. Ulcers. There's bruising up and down the rib cage. Jesus- sorry."
"They're old. Persistent. Its feet."
"What about..." The predator got quiet. I felt my scales shift in worry as it gingerly lifted one of my legs. It remained quiet, but its face stretched further. "What happened?"
It was looking at me. Asking me. I shrank further into the fabric, but there was nowhere to go. The silence was unbearable, and I started trembling.
The silence continued.
"A runaway." Sunshine rumbled after forever. I didn't understand what that meant. My translator didn't pick it up quite right. Run-away? Like fleeing? Was that what these predators called their prey? No... no that didn't seem right. It was possible, but...
"Could have been kidnapped." Another word I didn't understand, but my translator worked on the other predator. Stealing a person by force? Using fear outside of the law? How did predators have such a word? "We need to get it to the hospital. Figure out what happened and how it ended up in this field."
Sunshine's arms draped over me before I could escape, my attempt no better than a drunk Mazic trying to fit through a Venlil sized door. I couldn't stop the whine in my throat, but its soft digits down my back froze me. A subtle noise filtered out behind the mask, and it settled me back down in its garment. It picked up an edge lined with little metal teeth and draped it over me, blocking my sight from the other predator. I felt safe, suddenly. Sunshine's firm grip on my body didn't feel threatening. It felt like a promise, as it carefully pulled me against it's bulk. I was warm, despite my terror.
"Zuda will handle it. No hospitals. This stays with us."
"Sunshine," the other predator protested, "we need to figure out what happened!"
"Think, Doc." Sunshine growled, and this was no doubt a warning. I felt relief that the difference between the two growls was so obvious.
"Think. Use your head."
There was a period of silence. "You don't... that can't be right." I didn't understand what conclusion it made.
"The injuries are uniform. Too clean to be anything else."
They can't know. How can they know?
"We need confirmation!"
"We already have it." Sunshine stated, and slowly the fabric was lifted off of my head. I blinked, and noticed that the other predator had changed a different shade.
That's odd. Are you predators like me?
That's terrifying. I'm not a threat. I'm me.
"It reacted to the van and mention of a hospital, Doc. Nobody outside the UN hears of this. Operational security."
It... does Sunshine know? How do they know?
"What the fuck is this planet, Sunshine?" The other predator lamented.
Sunshine didn't respond. He looked around at the surrounding encampment, and I realized it was shrinking. They were leaving. A few other predators were subtly watching as they worked, but I doubted they could hear the conversation with how quiet it was. I realize there's a few Venlil in their ranks, unbothered by their presence and even wearing garments similar to the predators around them.
A digit tapped the end of my snout and I flinched, looking up at Sunshine. It's paw retracted as the other predator withdrew a medical kit with a paw print on it and began to unclasp it. "You're safe. We're... we're going to help."
You know. You know what I am. And you're helping me anyway. Why are you helping me? I'm weak. I'm dangerous. But not to you. You're an apex. Is that why? Does your species stick together, unlike the Arxur? Do you uplift those around you, no matter if they're prey or dangerous? The Venlil are not afraid of you. You must not eat them. What do you eat? It has to be meat. But, it must be something that they can handle. Does what makes me dangerous fall away under your hierarchy? I hope it does. It doesn't seem real. I guess to you, what makes me a threat is meaningless.
I believe Sunshine. I really do. When the other predator comes forward with a healing gel, I surrender.
I am safe.

2023.06.03 20:05 dearsophiasmith Phone Screen Wrong Size?

Not sure if this is the right place to put this, but worth a shot. I switched phones and the game doesn't set itself to my phone screen size. A lot of the buttons and words get cut off, making it unplayable. Any idea how to fix this? I have a Motorola edge.
