is my snail ok?
a while back i made a post about my cornu, turbo, because he’s been hibernating on and off every other week. i finally got the tank conditions to be pretty consistent (had too much ventilation at first) and i’ve been feeding him assorted vegetables (broccoli, carrots, cauliflower) and dried-rehydrated mealworms. he hasn’t really been touching the mealworms, so that might be contributing to what’s happening now. i’ve also noticed him rasping at the side of his tank, but i assumed he was just trying to get water droplets.
i have a photo of him from this morning and a photo of him from just a few minutes ago. he’s sealed himself up again, and i’m not sure why this time. it’s also kind of orange which is worrying? the humidity in the tank is good, the temperature is fine, and i can’t find any bugs in the tank that might’ve upset him.
i want to be able to give him the care he deserves, and i’m really starting to worry about him more as time goes on. the last couple of days he was slower than usual, too. i’ve had him for about two months and haven’t seen the discoloration before, but is there a chance this is just normal snail behavior?

2023.06.03 19:35 Workw0rker Relapsed: Symptoms are all back.

Hey everyone this is just a list of symptoms I find that happens to me when I vape.
  1. Low Energy. Seriously after taking a couple puffs for a couple hours I have low energy. I can feel myself being dragged down just from walking alone. It sucks and I hate feeling fatigued.
  2. Bad Breath + Tonsil Stones: Its gross. My breath is now getting stinky again (I floss and brush every day). I also get tonsil stones which are disgusting and having to clean them out makes me gag.
  3. Diarrhea. Its gross. Ive been eating healthier but ever since I got the vape my shits have all been liquid and my ass is sore from wiping (time to get a bidet).
  4. Coughing up phlegm in the morning. Every morning after I started vaping again I cough up nasty dark yellow phlegm. It coats my mouth for the rest of the day and adds to the bad breath.
  5. Chest Pains. Yup, random chest pains. I had a spontaneous lung collapse years ago and it feels similar and it creates so much anxiety.
  6. Acne Flare ups: Not sure if its related but since I started vaping again my acne has been getting worse despite my skincare routine.
  7. Anxiety: This one should be number one but here it is cause Im too exhausted to fix it and im blaming the vape. My heartrate is soaring through the roof, Im a bit more shakey, I sweat much more making my hands super clammy. All anxiety symptoms.
  8. Depression: I find myself feeling shitty because I vape and the shame that comes with it. How could I fail? How could I feel so good from something so terrible? Terrible thoughts that bring me down and sap my energy.
  9. Boners not as strong. Thats all you gotta know bout that. Vaping kills your dick.
  10. Cold. I feel much more cold when I vape, physically cold. I have to layer up or else Ill start to shiver.
There is probably more but these are the ones that come up.
Remember everyone why youre quitting. These symptoms are all not worth the small dopamine boost you get from sucking on a battery.
Theres probably more but these are the ones that I find most prevalent.

2023.06.03 19:34 redditnamesucks A fortuitous slip: Did Vietnam's Vice Minister of Education slip and fall to his death? Or did something else happen?

The morning of October 17th 2019 was a cool and bright autumn day, two words rarely used to describe the treacherous Hanoi’s weather, when Lê Hải An arrived at his workplace, the Ministry of Education on 35 Đại Cồ Việt street, Hai Bà Trưng district, Hà Nội. Normally, he would have had a big breakfast at the office canteen then head off to his office at the second floor where he would spend the rest of his day trying to solve the numerous problems plaguing Vietnam’s education.
At 7:10 AM, someone spotted a figure falling from the 8th floor. There was a blood-curling smash; the figure was declared dead on impact. It wasn’t hard for people to identify the man.
In just a few hours, public media across Vietnam would declare that Vice Minister Lê Hải An had died. The reason?
He slipped and fell off the balcony.
The story I am about to tell you is not just a simple fall.
The story I am about to tell you sounds like something out of a conspiracy theory, the one spewed by tinfoil hat wearers on the street, the one peddled by shock websites and fringe extremist forums, the kind that would make you think it was a rejected Hollywood script and not real life. And I must admit, I have to work with secondary foreign sources with many being biased and some outright spewing baseless conspiracy theories. Many original sources had been removed or edited, forever lost into a memory hole resembling that of 1984. In trying to be faithful, I've removed a lot more "fantastical" elements that have no proof to be cross-checked; I will do my best to paint a complete picture of not only who Lê Hải An was, but the treacherous world around him, a nightmarish jungle of political infighting.
To those who don’t believe, I ask you to just give me the benefit of the doubt and remember this one thing:
“This is Vietnam.”
PART 1: The model teacher
In Vietnam, we have this saying: “Tôn sư trọng đạo” meaning “To worship your teachers and to respect your study.” A teacher was not simply a teacher; he/she was the paragon of society, the enlightener, the one who upheld all the virtues of society, who embodied such virtues, and who passed on such virtue to younger generations.
Lê Hải An was one such man.
Born in April 1st 1971 in Hà Nội, An was the son of Lê Hải Châu, a famous educator whose mathematics book was once the golden standard of Vietnamese mathematics education. In fact, if you were in Vietnamese highschool in the 90s to early 2000s, you would have used one of his books. For his contribution, Châu was awarded the title “The People’s Teacher,” a once highly prestigious prize reserved for the most devoted teacher. Given his family’s background, An was said to be set for life.
But An did not take the easy way. He challenged himself continuously, was handpicked as a government-sponsored student to study Mining and Geology at Moscow State University of Geodesy and Cartography. Even late in his career, he still pursued his passion for the mining industry, successfully defending a thesis on the application of neural networks in the oil industry at the Heriot-Watt University.
Given his background and training, Lê Hải An was made a professor at the Hanoi University of Mining and Geology. At first he was a teacher at the Petroleum department, but rose steadily through the rank. To his students, he was a knowledgeable yet compassionate teacher who never sought to exert his authority; to his colleagues, he was a man of honor, of dignity, representing the paragon of teachers thought to have been lost. Nobody complained when he was made the University’s principal; nobody complained when Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc appointed An to be the Vice Minister of the much troubled Ministry of Education.
Well, maybe not nobody.
PART 2: You have to go to Hà Giang and take the national exam
For every Vietnamese students, nothing struck the fear of God in them worse than the word "National Exam." Not as competitive as the Chinese Gaokao or the Korean Suneung, it is the stuff of nightmare that have made and broken life. Students competed for the sweet sweet spot at the Police Academy and Military Academy (It is in fact more difficult to become a cop or an army officer in Vietnam than to become a doctoteacheengineeIT technician); parents wait anxiously for their children's performance to show off to friends and families; educators wait for the top scores to make their annual achievement look good so they can attract better students to their high school.
Exam season rolled around, and the results were released by July 11th 2018. As soon as the scores came out, all of Vietnam was shocked.
Of all the 64 cities and provinces, Hà Giang scored the highest in the national exam, with the highest number of “Thủ Khoa” or “The top scorer.” This, to many, was a surprise: not only Hà Giang was the poorest province in all of Vietnam, it traditionally had high illiteracy rate, high dropout rate, low graduation rate, low university admission rate, and so on and so forth. The fact that during the same year Hà Giang had the highest rate of failure to graduate from high school also raised eyebrows.
And Hà Giang was not the only province. Sơn La and Hòa Bình, two other terrible performers, also scored suspiciously well, outmatching province such as Thanh Hóa-Nghệ An-Hà Tĩnh who have been known as "Đất Học" or "The land of the studious."
Immediately, people began to cry foul. There was a lot of anger: a lot of students who had worked their whole lives were in danger of losing their spots to some “irregularities.” A common saying began to emerge: “Em phải đến Hà Giang thi đại học” or “You have to go to Hà Giang and take the national exam.” Investigations were launched into the Ministry of Education just one day after the score was released.
Quick investigation revealed that this was not just some "irregularities" but a systematic scheme, raising scores for test-takers: some exam takers received a nine points out of a total of ten points boost for individual exam, and some had their total points raised by thirty points out of a total of forty. Not only that, the exam-takers who benefitted from this were some of the most powerful people in Vietnam. Take the case of Hà Giang: one of the person whose scores were raised was Triệu Ngọc Mai, daughter's of Triệu Tài Vinh, General Secretary of Hà Giang. The Triệu clan ruled Hà Giang as a fiefdom of their own, holding most important positions; they had strong ties with the Minister of Education Phùng Xuân Nhạ, a widely-hated and despised figures for his bare-faced corruption and mismanagement, and the President of Vietnam Trần Đại Quang. People were expecting the investigation would go to nowhere - afterall, who dared to incur the wrath of the President of Vietnam?
Then, out of nowhere, Trần Đại Quang died.
On September 21st 2018, the fit and healthy Trần Đại Quang suddenly passed away from “a rare and unknown virus which he contracted during his trips.”
No more explanation was given. One month later, on November 3rd 2018, Lê Hải An received Decision 1475/QĐ-TTg from Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc himself, making him the Vice Minister of Education and in charge of the National Examination scandal
PART 3: His final moment
For the next year, An worked with diligence, doing his best to hold the perpetrators accountable. By the numerous newspaper articles, it was clear he was the one leading the charge while his superior, Nhạ, kept a low profile and only appeared on the media every now and then to make some empty speech. He worked hard, showing up at his office early and having breakfast in the office’s canteen to save time, then immediately dived into work in his office on the second floor. His work yielded results: 16 bureaucrats were arrested, 222 exam takers were exposed, large sums of bribes were confiscated. To many, perhaps An included, it wasn’t enough. Everyone knew the big fish Nhạ was still out there, and everyone was itching to see him fall.
It was on the morning of October 17th 2019 when Lê Hải An arrived at his workplace, the Ministry of Education on 35 Đại Cồ Việt street, Hai Bà Trưng district, Hà Nội. We had little idea of what had happened on that day, but what we knew painted a very strange picture.
Normally, An would go straight to his office on the second floor, rarely having any reasons to go anywhere else. And, given the early hour, most other offices would be empty.
Yet, on that day, An seemed to have gone to the eighth floor. There was no record of what he was doing there or who he was meeting; the floor also had no camera. Photographs of the crime scene showed a table which supposedly An had sat - this table had an almost empty glass of cold tea, a cigarette pack, and an ashtray with ash in it. Another table was photographed with an old red gym bag and a nylon bag containing non-descript items; next to this table was a chair with another plastic bag containing non-descript items on it. All the tables were seated next to a balcony which was about 80 centimeters tall. An was described to be 180 centimeters tall, and when his body was discovered it was lying parallel to the building from which he fell from next to a tree but seemingly did not hit it.
Given all the evidence, by 8:30 AM it was concluded that An slipped and fell. No more investigation was made
PART 4: The truth won’t set you free
Of course, the conclusion did not satisfy anybody.
On one hand, there is very low trust for the Vietnamese police who have shown their ineptitude and willingness to fake evidence time and time again. With miscarriage of justice cases such as Hồ Duy Hải and Huỳnh Văn Nén fresh in every one’s mind, the police’s conclusion lost even more credits. The fact that the police quickly concluded An slipped and fell only at most two hours after they were notified of the accident and refused to investigate any further reek of a cover-up.
But, even with the benefit of doubt for the police, the idea of An slipping and falling was deemed unthinkable to many. For one thing, people did not understand why An went to the eighth floor when his office was on the second floor. If he was there on business, what business could it be at such an early hour (government offices in Vietnam often begin work at 8:00 AM if not 9:00 AM.) If he was there to meet someone, who was that someone and why was he not investigated? No investigation was made into his phone or email either.
Then there was the balcony.
The balcony was described by some to be eighty centimeter tall, which would make slipping a feasible case for someone 1.8 meter tall like An. However, images from the crime scene show a police man standing next to the balcony and the balcony reaching his chest. Given that the minimum height to be accepted to the police academy is 1.64 meters, we are looking at a 1.2 meter tall balcony at the very least. It will be very hard to slip and fall over, unless someone was leaning over it. But why would anybody do such a thing? Some suggested he was drunk and tired and this could have been the case, but with no toxicology report done on him there was no way to make sure.
Some commentators also pointed out that even if An leaned out and fell, his body would have landed in a perpendicular angle with the building block he was falling out from. Yet, in the crime scene image, he was shown lying parallel to the building, as if he had rolled over on his side. There were no obstacles on the way down so his falling body could not have hit anything. The only thing in his way was a tree, but the branches were very frail and images did not show any conclusive evidence that he hit the tree on his way down.
So, if he did not slip and fall, what else could have happened?
Suicide was also suggested and has remained a strong contender. It must be remembered that An was an important man being surrounded by enemies. He had a very heavy burden to shoulder and had to endure political shenanigans from all sides. Perhaps, the pressure had broken the hitherto earnest teacher who had not had a taste for the wild political arena. So, he decided to go to the eighth floor, climbed over it (which could have required him to drape over the balcony, explaining why his body was found parallel to the building) then let himself fall.
Of course, some don’t agree with the idea. They pointed out he was a very happy, very respected man with a long and promising career, a loving family, and a dedication towards a higher calling. Men like him, they said, rarely killed themselves. While this could be true, this “proof” is very weak as many successful men have committed suicide. Perhaps, he was only showing himself to be happy; perhaps there was something else going on with his life that we would never know.
Finally, and perhaps the most pervasive, is the idea An was killed. Of course, given that this theory was born out of circumstantial evidence not any real evidence, this belongs more to the conspiracy theory bin. The temptation was there: An was leading the crusade against some very powerful individual, many of whom had both the power and desire to get rid of someone like An. If the former President himself could die so mysteriously while in office, who was to say An was safe? The police’s quick conclusion and refusal to investigate any further as well as the image of a supposedly official letter from his wife begging for police protection (now scrubbed off the internet) only added more flame to the fire.
So, assuming An was killed, who had killed him?
The obvious answer to many would be Nhạ: he was An’s boss, he was investigated by An, he could’ve lost his power and friends and influence. He wanted An dead, had the means to do so, and was therefore the prime suspect. The many clans whose children’s road to power An had dashed such as the Triệu clan also had axes to grind with An.
However, there was another suspect.
Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc, the man who had appointed An to the position himself.
Before this all happened, Phúc was rumored to be in a power struggle with President Trần Đại Quang and the Ministry of Public Security. After Quang’s death in 2018, Phúc was trying to court Quang’s Department of Public Security to his side. The new head of this Department was Tô Lâm (The man who was videoed eating at Salt Bae’s place in London while Vietnam was under lockdown and starving.) Perhaps, as a gesture of peace, Phúc sold out his subordinate as an “apology.”
Ultimately, given that these theories are born out of the lack of evidence and the coincidence, we cannot accept them as “reasonable.”
PART 5: Farewell
On the 21st of October 2019, Lê Hải An’s funeral was held. It was a simple affair and yet it attracted thousands of mourners, ranging from the Vietnamese elites to his students. To many, the loss of An was a great loss to this world. Even without his work to clean up the Ministry of Education, he was an honest, hard-working, humble man who had always tried his best to live up to the image of the model teacher that had become so rare in modern Vietnam. The fact that such a good man had to die so early only rubbed more salt into the open wound.
But time will fly. Life will move on, heals will wound, stories will be forgotten, people will forget. Lê Hải An will one day fade into obscurity, and with him the question:
“What happened to Lê Hải An on October 17th 2019?”
Shameless self-promotion
In the next episode of "The Mysteries of Vietnam," we will return to a re-write and updated version of the first case I wrote about years ago: did Hồ Duy Hải murder two innocent postal workers at Cầu Voi post office, or was it the work of a serial killer on the loose? And why is the Vietnamese government intervening in the case?

2023.06.03 19:31 alm1688 Yeah, thanks for reminding me that all my friends are dead.

I’m currently living in a nursing home and rehab facility recovering from a hemmorhaggic stroke that has paralyzed my left side and left me wheelchair bound. I’ve been here nearly three years (thanks for that curveball,2020!)& have made a handful of sweet old friends in their sixties, eighties, and ninetie. On the weekends we would get together so that I could show them movies that I thought they should watch- ‘Hook’,’Jack’, ‘Lilo&Stitch’, ‘Frozen’,’Encanto’,’Moana’,’Jumunji’, the entire‘Harry Potter’ series and whatnot. Unfortunately my friends have been dying one by one, starting last June with my sweet66 year old friend and neighbor, Daniel- he had a health crisis last May and was hospitalize, his wife said that she would have him come back to this facility once he was released from the hospital - I’m unsure of what actually happened with him but I do believe that it was something to do with his blood sugar (though he was not diabetic-but his family brought him a lot of sweets and sodas that he would go through at an alarming rat)& then once he consumed all of his goodies, he would constantly ask the staff for snacks and whatever so I believe that his wife was worried that the staff would not stick to his new diet or something and took him to another facility where he ultimately passed away at, then in at the beginning of March, my fellow stroke survivor and neighbor who was young and either in her thirties or fourties’ passed after having another stroke, later in March, my new friend, Joan passed away after a stint in the hospital I was told that she didn’t die but that she would not be coming back to the facility- I assumed that she maybe needed more care than this facility provided but after a week in the hospital, she did in fact return here but was a mere shell of who she had been- to me she already looked dead, her face was sunken and she couldn’t close her mouth so she just gasped and wheezed instead of talking - I didn’t think she would survive the night she returned but she did and she passed a few days later. Early April my 99 year old friend, Ellen passed unexpectedly in the night, she was always a bit depressed but she was in good health and always ready to mock my hiccups the moment I got them lol. Late April, my 85 year old diabetic friend, Lisa was hospitalized with liver failure and passed a week and a half later- the last time she had called me from the hospital, her tv was blaring so I couldn’t stay on the phone with her because it was hurting my ears and I couldn’t hear her anyway- her text to m a mere12 hours before she died was gibberish and I couldn’t make out what she was trying to say, so I tried calling her but it just went to voicemail, I was told the next morning that she had passed that morning… anyway, the housekeeper was in my room this morning wiping down my footboard and sadly said “oh you don’t have anyone you can talk to now.” - I don’t think she meant any harm in saying that I think she said it because she was sad thinking of all of the deaths. But damn, now the reminder has made me sad because I don’t have anyone to watch movies with on my iPad on the weekends and my old, younger friends have their own lives and better things to do than come visit their “old”friend in a nursing hom, jezee lady, thanks for the dose of depression today …

I am so pleasantly surprised
my buddy sold me 2oz of this stuff for a killer deal cuz I haven’t been able to make my regular trips to the dispo due to an injury. so I took it without really inspecting the bud first. got it home, and expected it to be some reggie ass shit since it’s full of stems & leafy as hell. the smell was not promising either.
well i smoked some of it this morning and have never had such a good & strong high from only 2 bowls. my tolerance is insane too, so i’m not sure if it’s just because of the different terpene profile or whatever but damn I will never judge it before I smoke it ever again🫡

2023.06.03 19:28 littlestormerready This is a good morning

I took my kid to skate practice. After watching many practices on the sidelines, knitting - today I walked the space around the track. Listened to music. Rested when I needed it. Walked slower when I had to. Didn't give a fudge what others thought. Took lots of water breaks, and even spun my practice poi for a few songs!
Hold on to days and mornings like these!! In a few hours, I many be in bed wirthing and moan in pain.
I will need to remember that I am more than my pain. That some days (most days) the pain Wins, BUT every once-in-awhile - I win. Small, tiny battles.
But I am still fighting. That is Enough.

2023.06.03 19:26 Akmedrah The Princess's Man - 16

PART 15 <==H==> FIRST
Will was excited, the past few weeks seemed to herald a new change in Ilicia’s and Agrana's relationship. He had been surprised when came back that first day to find Agrana eating and chatting idly with Ilicia. He was more surprised when Ilicia told him what had happened and when Agrana came to him to assure him of the end of her attempts on Ilicia's life. Will had nearly exploded trying to contain his shock.
It was now commonplace to see Ilicia and Agrana chatting when Will was not around. Will suspected his grandmother did something to facilitate this, but she assured him she had done nothing other than explain her relationship with Karva. Will was suspicious by nature, and as the Princess's Man, he was obligated to be suspicious of all things having to do with the princess. And an Ogdeshi taking a sudden interest in the princess and serving her was suspicious.
Will knew Agrana was a woman of her word. But he also knew her as a master manipulator, and he had confidence in the fact that Agrana would see little wrong with killing a large number of humans to get what she wanted. The thought of Ilicia coming to harm sent blood rushing through him in a way that threatened to bring on the natural occurrence of the Orcish blood rage.
Will was excited. All of this rushed through his head as he walked with Ilicia. He knew he was worried, and he hoped today would provide some reassurance for his ever-active imagination. Today was the day after he completed his training and he was to spend the entire day with Ilicia. She walked next to him, her arm through his, as he led them both through the twists and turns of a forest path that ended in a strange building seeming to grow out of the wood of a gargantuan tree.
The door opened automatically as they approached to reveal a wood elf-man in clothing that seemed to emanate a sense of regal energy. The elf smiled at them and bowed. "Master Will, Princess Ilicia, welcome and please do come in."
Ilicia smiled back at the man. "Thank you sir."
"How is the family Jullian?" Will asked as he stepped through the door, making it feel three inches too small in all directions.
"My wife is well, she is in the kitchen cooking as usual. I will be serving you today as my children are not here at the moment." Jullian said with a quick bow. He led them through the building which Ilicia realized was far larger than it appeared from the outside. They passed several other couples and groups that were seated at different tables as Jullian led them up a sweeping flight of stairs and out onto a balcony that appeared to be several hundred feet in the air and protruding from the tree.
"Will, what is going on with this building?" Ilicia asked, getting a twisting feeling in her stomach as she looked over the railing.
"That would be my wife's fault, she does as she will." Jullian said to Ilicia with an apologetic smile. He bowed once more, and then turned and walked away.
"What is this place Will?" Ilicia asked looking around and noting more and more things that simply felt off. She opened her mouth to speak again as a silver platter with goblets of water floated over and unloaded its cargo before simply vanishing into thin air.
Will laughed at her shock. "Jullian is a wood elf."
"Even I noticed that." Ilicia said wondering where Will was going with this.
"His wife is a goddess." Will said with a smile at how quickly Ilicia's jaw dropped. "We are not sure what she is a goddess of, but she has a penchant for cooking and brewing and she loves Jullian with her whole heart. She fell in love with him when he found her wounded in the woods and stayed by her side, talking of his home in the woods of his youth, he cooked for her and cared for her for three weeks before she could rise on her own."
"Wow." Ilicia said, "Do you know how she was injured?"
"No,and I am not sure anyone knows except Trina. That is the name she has chosen to go by. She also tells people that she is simply Jullian's goddess when asked what she is a goddess of. She is a rather interesting character, if she ever comes to say hello I am willing to bet you will like her."
Ilicia smiled at Will and Jullian reappeared. "So what would you like to eat?"
Will smiled and rattled off a list of food which all sounded strange. Ilicia looked around to see where he had made his selection, but Jullian simply smiled at her and told her to ask for anything she desired. Ilicia realized what was going on and ordered her favorite food from home. Jullian smiled, bowed, and vanished through the doors once more.
"Anything we want huh?" Ilicia asked with a mischievous grin on her face.
"She is a goddess. But I will warn you Ilicia, last time I started trying to challenge her in her ability to cook anything, well let's just say she is willing to humor most things. If she feels you crossed a line, she will let you know by making your food so spicy you taste it for weeks, and that's only after the second or third bite." Will said, his tone indicating he was speaking from experience.
"What did you ask her for?" Ilicia asked.
"My dad told me he used to eat at a place called 'micky dees' so I ordered one of everything from their menu, thinking I would have her stumped with food from another world." Will said and then looked up. "She made it all and delivered it to me, told me to enjoy, and told me if I ever asked her to make such ludicrous and disgusting food again, I would find myself unable to eat solid food for a year."
Ilicia laughed and smiled at Will as Jullian brought out a small cart loaded with plates of food he began to lay on the table.
They ate their food and talked about various things. When they were finished eating Jullina brought them dessert. Will turned to Ilicia and broached the topic of Agrana.
"Ilicia," Will said in a serious mood now, "why did you take Agrana as a member of your staff?"
Ilicia was caught a little off guard. "What do you mean? Why would I not take her onto my staff? Her skills are self-evident."
"Oh, I know. I remember well who first taught me other than my father." Will said this with no anger, simply curiosity. "But I would still ask why you did this. Is the protection I provide lacking? Do you anticipate me leaving you anytime soon? I simply want to know what your reasoning was in making this decision."
Ilicia thought for a moment and then spoke. "I had several reasons, mostly I wanted her to not want to kill me. But since then I have come to some conclusions as to why having her around will be better than not."
Will nodded and Ilicia leaned forward taking his massive hand into both of hers. "I do not think your protection is lacking in any way. I am fairly certain that should I ever be kidnapped, you will tear apart the continent one rock at a time, laughing the whole way."
Will shrugged. The noncommittal way he agreed with herreminded her just how powerful Will really was. Ilicia continued. "The short answer is, you can never have enough bodyguards. The long answer is, I think that while you are the Princess's Man, you will begin to fulfill a far more important role in political functions once we return to the kingdom." She finished her thought in her head, "Hopefully that position is as my fiance or husband, and you can leave all the bodyguard work to Agrana."
Will thought about this for a moment, his eyes never leaving hers. Ilicia knew he was probably mulling over important thoughts, but a part of her wanted him to just look at her like that as he took her on the table. Ilicia shook her head and spoke once more. "So in addition to helping with my safety in that regard, if you leave to deal with the man who killed your father, I will still have a guardian."
Will nodded at this and seemed to relax. "Very well, but I want you to know if she ever makes a move against you again, I will kill on the spot."
Ilicia nodded, knowing from his tone that this was not a discussion but rather a statement of fact. That mischievous voice in her head also wanted him to command her in that tone. Ilicia blushed at the thoughts she was having and looked away from Will.
Will smiled at her when she finally got her blushing cheeks to cool. "So, we have eaten and now we have a whole day to ourselves. What would you like to do, Ilicia?"
"Well, I would like to visit your grandmother's library if she will let us." Ilicia said, remembering the room of books she saw Yilan in earlier.
"Of course." Will said with a smile.
Jullian appeared. "Is there anything else you would like?"
"No, Jullian it was fantastic as always." Will said with a smile.
"Thank you." Jullian said and turned to Ilicia. "If you have a moment my wife has requested a moment of your time."
"Of course Jullian." Ilicia said, turning to Will.
"I will wait for you outside." Will headrf down stairs on his own.
Ilicia followed Jullian through the building which only further exemplified how incredibly large the building was compared to its looks on the outside. When he finally led her into a kitchen that could have fed the entire castle she grew up in, Jullina bowed to her, smiled at the glowing woman standing behind a counter, and then turned to grab a tray of food and leave.
"Come Princess," the woman gestured to a stool set next to her. "Have a seat and talk with me for a moment."
"Of course." Ilicia said, falling back on court manners in this rather strange incident.
"Firstly, call me Trina," the goddess said, "and secondly, what do I have to do to make you forget your love of Will?"
Ilicia's jaw almost hit the counter. "What do you mean? Why would I ever do such a thing?"
Ilicia was angry, a deep anger that burned deep in her gut. Trina stopped what she was doing, knife paused mid-cut. "I care for Will, his father and mother both were dear friends of mine and always treated me no differently than anyone else. As a divinity, I have some small gift of foresight, and you need not be in love with Will. More importantly, he needs to not love you."
"I see why you wanted to talk to me only." Ilicia said indignantly. "Will would kill you."
"I spared with the boy once, and he very well might be one of the very few mortals who could kill a god, but that is beyond the point." Trina said with a calm voice of understanding. "I need to know what I would have to do, to what I would have to give you, to get you to remove Will from your life."
Ilicia panicked. She hated this woman. She looked into Trina's eyes. "You will have to kill me. I love him, there is nothing you could give me that could replace Will."
The goddess stared hard at Ilicia who did not back down. Trina chuckled. "Those Garrow men sure do pick firecrackers. You know there was a time where Will's father took one of my daughters on a date? She came home and said she would bless whoever he married because he was a handful. Then he went and married Yilan's daughter and they gave birth to a man who is by rights almost a god in terms of his ability and power."
Ilicia's head was spinning as she tried to follow Trina's words with her ears, and with her eyes the flurry of time-defiant movements her hands made. Trina paused again and looked Ilicia in the eyes. "You are a brave woman, and you will need to be. A time will come when the love you hold is used against Will, I hope you are strong enough to face the repercussions. Will is getting anxious, and I can not warp time any more than I already have without causing you harm. Take this and go to him, cherish him while you can princess."
Trina handed Ilicia a sweet roll and then hesitated before placing her hand on Ilicia's head and bowing hers for a moment. Ilicia felt a wave of energy wash over her. "Go forth with my blessing child."
Ilicia stood and left the kitchen to find Jullian waiting to take her outside. The sun was setting, where it had been morning just an hour or two ago. She looked back to the building and then to Will. She shrugged and slipped her arm through his. As she shared the sweet roll with him, Trina's words echoed through her mind.
One phrase in particular rattled her to her bones as Will guided her back to Yilan's library. "...I hope you are strong enough to face the repercussions."

2023.06.03 19:24 JarePur28489 Milf?Help?Advice?

I met this beautiful woman when I was 16 and she was 24 we met at a job we both this was back in 2015 when we met used to work we got along very well due to we had to work together. The job was a lot of people all ages from 16 to whatever so incase anyone ask here where I live 16yr is the age you can work. So we together every day I started to get to know her a bit more and same her with me I was attracted to her she was gorgeous.I was attracted to older woman senses I maybe 9-10 so I always thought of fucking her or just being in a relationship in general till maybe a few a few weeks in I found her FB and IG I wanted to ask her for her number was to much of chicken to ask but after convincing myself I asked and gave it. We started talking a lot more at first it was me saying Good-morning or goodnight but all of the sudden it’s her now and she than vegans to to tell send me hearts or kiss emojis so I would go and everything was going good when I accidentally sent the emoji face this one (🥵) and replied with the same and the wink face with kisses I was surprised and after that we sent emoji like which was pretty sexual an just talked on the or work alot. Now we skip fast forward 6 months so technically now its 2016 I already had her number and everything and at this point we had this thing where she would joke about me always flirting with her and what not but I only did it cause she would give me this look it wasn’t a normal look she would bite on her bottom lip most of the time an being her eyebrow up with a smile. So me a 16yr kind knew what she was up for well not at least what I was thinking was to fuck luckily she was to. So I talked to we once leaving work and was a bit nervous to ask and was second guessing a lot I almost blew it but I somehow got the balls to ask and tell her how I felt. I explained to her I was into her not like a friend type of way more of a well I wanna fuck I just told her there was no point at all sugar coding it she was quite at first but than told me she was flattered and we went back to her place mind you it’s likes 11pm. We get there she tells me I have to sneak in the light the back window cause of her 3 kids so I do. I go in through and automatically she’s on me we making out taking are clothes off and she just grabs on to my dick hard it hurtes a bit not gonna lie an slips it in her. And she just starts riding me the whole 8 minutes she looked me dead in the eyes that same look biting on her bottom lip and her eyebrow up with a small smile. I kid you not I just nutted after those 8 minutes she eventually told me that when she texted me 66 that I was she wanted me the second go around was a bit longer an i lasted more this time.
If you want to hear about the second time let me know but I do miss her we fucked for almost 7 years she just 31 and I’m 23 but we stopped fucking this early year cause she said she need to get some things situated but never spoke to me again. Now she’s engaged and wants nothing to do with me and i don’t know what to do or how to even react I feel like I was used. But I am going to keep trying like in the messages it’s just hard I have so many videos and pictures of her like how can I continue after something like this?

2023.06.03 19:23 acidbb Boyfriend threatened to crash my car into a pole with both of us in it.

Good morning! I guess this is a vent, it just happened and I have nowhere else to share it. My relationship with him is extremely rocky and it's reaching it's breaking point, I regrettably signed a lease with him so I'm stuck for another year of yelling and slamming doors and gaslighting. But that's not the vent. Today he picked me up from work in my car and I offered to buy us both food. We started having a normal conversation about our animals and it turned to chores. He likes to argue with me about how often I do chores and even gaslit me when I KNOW how often I've done them, to the point he'll acknowledge it when it benefits him and then forget it when it makes me look competent. We were literally arguing about how often I've done the dishes. While on this topic he said if I didn't shut up he was going to crash my car into a pole with both of us in it an 80 mph. You can understand why I'm upset. And then he has the audacity to say, "if you actually knew me you'd know I respect cars more than most humans" and minimizes the fact that I'm upset that he directly threatened my life and car, because he was being an asshole and I wasn't letting him. I know this is abusive and he is abusive.
tl;dr Boyfriend threatened to crash my car that I pay for into a pole because I wasn't letting the "argument" which was just a conversation about chores, go his way.

2023.06.03 19:22 Four_N_Six Need help with a decision on mice

I recently bought a new PC after playing on a gaming laptop for about 6 years. Keyboard and headset are all set, and I'm using the Razer Tartarus with (so far) great success.
My issue is my mouse. I have had very bad luck with Razer mice in my past, and when I got the new PC I decided to get a new mouse, too. I was previously using and loving my Razer Trinity (using the circular button layout), but in less than a year, started having issues with my right click. Playing a lot of FPS and needing to ADS, this became an issue so I decided to spend the money on something to replace it with.
I picked up the Spatha X about two months ago and it's been good until a couple of weeks ago. I started having issues where now it's registering a double click whenever I single click. Doesn't happen every time, and it isn't always causing problems, but it's getting worse. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, all the usual fixes, but haven't been able to find a solution online. Last night on a whim I checked Amazon and saw that for some reason, the Logitech G502 was nearly half off (and it was my back-up choice to the Spatha X in the first place), so I grabbed it without looking much further into it.
This morning my Google app flooded me with articles about gaming mice (as was expected), and I saw another option that I hadn't considered before, the Logitech G604. It's not as stylish (I couldn't care less about looks at this point), and it runs on a AA instead of my Spatha's rechargeable, but that shouldn't really be an issue. Mostly I'm drawn to it for the extra thumb buttons, which I've grown accustomed to after using the Trinity.
Does anyone have any experience with these two Logitech mice? I can return to 502 and get the 604 no problem (hasn't arrived yet), but I'm not sure if I'd notice the extra buttons THAT much to justify bothering with the switch. 502 has only 3 thumb buttons, but from what I'm seeing online, it has 12 buttons compared to the 604's 15, so mostly it's the convenience of having 6 on the side instead of just the three.

2023.06.03 19:21 trixieseyelash GMM may have saved my life

This morning I was getting ready for work in my bathroom around 4am and watching one of my favorite Mores, the one where they make a necklace, having a good ol time. I heard a squeaky sound, paused it for a moment, and figured it was my a/c so I went back to watching. Moments later, I felt someone watching me and looked up to see a dude standing in my living room, in the dark, peering into my bathroom. The squeaky was from him breaking into my back door. I screamed, locked myself in the bathroom, called 911, blah blah blah. All is relatively well, my therapist is getting an earful on Tuesday. I think he didn’t expect me to be awake or home (I obviously don’t know how much stalking is taking place), but thanks to me being on a strict schedule of listening to some form of mythical content before work, I didn’t get murdered or robbed!
