2023.06.11 02:38 HumanPersondotexe lgballtart will be going dark *indefinitely* starting June 12th as part of the Reddit-wide blackout in protest of the absurd API pricing
Blackout? What Blackout?
If you haven't heard yet, over the past week and a bit Reddit has been organizing a platform-wide blackout where thousands of subreddits (including huge and default ones with tens of millions of subscribers like aww
) will be going private and/or restricting posts so no new ones can be made.
A list of participating subreddits can be found here
This is in protest of Reddit announcing its new API pricing for its previously free API, which is extremely expensive to a ridiculous degree.
Some subreddits will only go dark from the 12th to the 14th of June, while others like lgballtart
will be going dark until Reddit actually does something.
There are two key reasons;
- This sucks for third party apps and their users (many of which are subreddit mods or Reddit's most active contributers)
This API pricing is forcing third-party apps to shut down. The developer of the extremely popular third-party app Apollo announced that Reddit's API pricing would cost him $20 million per year
to run the app. Since then, he has announced (along with the developers of other popular apps like Reddit is Fun) that he has to shut down the app on June 30th to prevent being charged huge amounts of money.
For me and many other avid users, the official Reddit app is borderline unusable with its horrid loading times and video player that lives in my nightmares. So instead, I use a third party app which is significantly smoother and has additional features. This makes moderating and just being on this platform much easier.
If these apps go away, so do many mods. And Reddit without moderation could result in rampant spam and potentially illegal content being posted.
Most Reddit users are lurkers or occasional commenters -- the people who actually submit content, who are most active, are much more likely to use third-party apps. And I don't know about you, but I think a platform focused on content would be pretty boring without content. 2. This sucks for the visually impaired
Reddit's official app is awful when it comes to accessibility. It does not support iOS's native text-to-speech tool.
A lot of third-party apps, on the other hand, do. This is what allows many blind people to use Reddit.
By forcing third-party apps to shut down, Reddit is forcing these users to go away.
I don't think I have to explain why that's bad.
To be frank, it's because two or three days won't do anything.
If Reddit knows that we'll all come back after a small amount of time, they can just continue like we did nothing at all. If we keep going at it until they change, that's not something they can ignore.
Why do you think that will work?
Because Reddit hates negative press. And the past two Reddit blackouts that have occured - the first against Aimee Challenor
, the other against COVID misinformation subreddits
- have both worked because of this.
And in this situation, we do have bad news coverage. The BBC has covered the situation
. That's massive attention all pointed at Reddit.
If the other two have worked with similar situations to this one, I have hope that we can force Reddit to change this time as well.
How will this affect me, a simple gay ball connoisseur?
Well, you probably won't be able to see most of your favorite subreddits.
But more importantly, we on lgballtart
highly encourage you to stay off Reddit
during this time. The point of this blackout is to make Reddit lose money to show our dissatisfaction, because they thrive off advertisements. Less users, less money, more incentive to change.
Reddit needs to remember that it's us, the users, who make their content. So we need to show them.
Yes, it sucks that this is all happening during Pride month, the time where our little gay ball oasis should be at its most active. But I think that if we have a chance to stop Reddit from getting worse, we should take it, and that means participating in a blackout at an inconvenient time.
So, LGBallTarters, citizens of LGBallTart, homosexual sphere enthusiasts - I wish all of you a very pleasant 'please stay off Reddit, because we won't be open and neither will almost anywhere else'.

2023.06.11 02:37 Tuirvaris Want to marry boyfriend and begin PR process.
Hoping to get some perspective on several aspects of the process given our situation. I have a lot of questions, so this is quite long. Thank you anyone who takes the time!
Background: I'm a Canadian citizen and my boyfriend is a US citizen. We want to get married in Canada and begin the PR process and get him an open work permit as soon as realistically possible. I've bounced back and forth on the government websites and seen a lot about the different tracks for spousal sponsorship and I have a few questions. I'm also overwhelmed by the density of information and I'm sorry if some of what I'm asking should be easy to figure out.
(1) First off, if someone comes into the country on passport (which I gather gives them 6 months max stay), and we get married and apply for PR, does that application allow for that 6 months to be extended? Or is there another additional process to do that? I gather people outside US need a TVA, but I can't seem to find clarification on whether that's needed here. As an extension of this, does a submitted application then allow for an open work permit application?
(2) If we did an inland sponsorship as above, could he return home to visit or retrieve possessions during the processing period?
(3) I'm also uncertain about getting him in for the visit we want to be the long one. We're nervous about what to say when he's asked at the airport this time. I was thinking of getting him to say, "I'm here to stay with a friend for the summer to go camping on the west coast a bunch," or something to that effect (which is basically true). I'd appreciate any guidance for this bit.
(4) Another question is, if we intend to extend the stay and he gets a return flight, is it a problem if we "decide to change when he returns later"? or does he have to absolutely leave on that return flight? And if he does, what does it do to our application? I gather that having the return flight in place reduces the chance of him getting turned around by the officer upon arrival, so should we book the return for like five and a half months out to maximize our time to get paperwork through, or do a more modest time like two months to reduce risk?
I appreciate any info and feedback provided. We're both working like mad right now and trying endlesses searches to find relevant posts (specific to inland + passport) has been futile so far.

Blood in the Snow: A Medieval Fantasy RP
It has been snowing endlessly for several years now in the land of Eistoria. This endless winter is known as Permafrost, and no one knows who caused it or why, but some think it was to change the tide of a war, but all sides had lost because of it. Eistoria's people and most of the wildlife are steadily dying out due to the cold, lack of food and dangerous beings and creatures attacking any that dare venture outside the safety of their homes. The storms were summoned by and unknown evil and due to the dangers, no one has been able to figure out the cause or how to stop it. The Great Wizard Alibaster in the capitol city of Avantris, however thinks they have found a solution, but it requires precious materials being delivered from the city of Aguefort City. Due to the treacherous roads, the wizard had requested an entourage of the city's best to escort a caravan to Avantris. They will have to brave the wilds in the storm while being hunted by various evils who vow to destroy anyone who dare make the journey.
Meanwhile in Aguefort City, a royal woman named Anastasia has contracted her shy Knight Sigrid to aid the Conjurer Simon and gather four other skilled specialists to escort her out of the city in an attempt to stop the ongoing war, but who knows who may be trying to stop her from leaving.

2023.06.11 02:35 bluetoster2000 What is the best background to accumulate attributes
From time to time the game releases events that add a few attribute points to a character and there are two events that give points that work with most backgrounds
brawler theaches that works only once and combat drill that can be repeated more than once for the same character
The idea of this is to have a promising character at level 1 almost the entire campaign trying to get him to accumulate points from these events
I have tried this a few times and in the end it has not turned out so well because there are not so many points that I have added
I usually always had a farmer in reserve trying to accumulate points but in my last game I left a cultist not for this purpose but because I had the idea of getting some armor
The thing is that, as he recruited new mercenaries, he released the event of transforming cultists giving him points in resolve and it happened more than once and an idea came to me
If I recruit a lumberjack, for example, who is one of the lowborn's with the best attributes, I turn him into a cultist, I leave him there in reserve transforming new recruits plus the combat drill, perhaps he is one of the best cards to do this tedious task of getting more points
What do you think, has anyone done the same? or is there a better way

2023.06.11 02:35 Cole-Spudmoney Fixing Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith with only minor to moderate changes
Since rewatching Revenge of the Sith
about a year ago I've come to appreciate it more in a lot of ways. In particular I've warmed up to the idea of Anakin's fall to the dark side being motivated by wanting the power to save Padmé, because of his own fear of losing people, rather than being a simple "seduced by power for power's sake" situation as it was presented in the original trilogy. It's a much more interesting concept... in theory, anyway. There are still two major problems with its execution:
- It overshadows everything else motivating Anakin's choice to turn against the Jedi and join the dark side.
- Anakin goes full-on evil far too quickly, leaping right from panicked despair over helping kill Mace Windu to slaughtering little kids in the space of an hour or so.
- Anakin seems to lose his original motivation almost immediately, as is particularly shown in his last conversation with Padmé on Mustafar.
What I want to do here is not
a complete rewrite or reimagining. It's just an adjustment of all the stuff that's already there in Revenge of the Sith
but not used to its full potential.
The first really important change I'll make is in the scene where Palpatine reveals himself to Anakin as the Sith lord. Rather than just
being like "Join me and I can save Padmé
", Palpatine should be doing everything he can to reinforce the trust they'd already established with each other: saying "All I want is to bring order and security to the galaxy
", and "In all the years we have known each other I have never lied to you
", and so on. Anakin is still conflicted, so he still reports Palpatine to the Jedi, but he needs to be able to have genuine loyalty to Palpatine rather than just making it an obvious deal-with-the-devil situation.
So when Anakin walks in on the Mace-vs-Palpatine duel, it should be Anakin himself who kills Mace Windu outright rather than just cutting his hand off and having Palpatine finish the job with Force-lightning. It needs to be Anakin's deliberate choice to side with Palpatine over the Jedi Order, out of the genuine belief that the Jedi had been holding him back and manipulating him, and that they'd been plotting to take over the Republic (which, as we see in the movie, isn't entirely
false) and so need to be completely purged root-and-branch. Anakin should not appear to be throwing himself on Palpatine's mercy: he's long believed Palpatine to be wise and just, and now he's going all-in on that existing loyalty.
So Anakin (who notably doesn't have his Sith name yet) is sent to the Jedi Temple – but his role is to destroy the defences on the Temple gates, so that the clone troopers can pour in and do the dirty work of massacring everyone inside. As I said before, Anakin isn't that far gone yet: he's only been a Sith apprentice for about an hour.
We'll then have the brief scene that night with Anakin and Padmé before he leaves Coruscant to go slaughter the remaining Separatist leadership (who are not
on Mustafar, but elsewhere). And the next day, Palpatine announces the founding of the Empire.
And now, crucially, we'll skip forward in time a few months. Anakin is now hunting down the remaining Jedi who initially escaped Order 66, and now
he's progressed to killing kids: we'll actually see him cut down a Master and Padawan. He's using the Sith name of Darth Vader and fighting with a red lightsaber – and he's wearing the familiar Vader mask with voice-changer, but with a black hooded robe rather than the suit and stackhat. Meanwhile, Padmé is now very close to being due, and has formed a secret political alliance with Bail Organa and Mon Mothma. She and Anakin have grown distant; their last conversation is not unlike their last one from the movie except with no Force-choking, and it ends with them at an impasse. Anakin also leaves his old blue lightsaber with her now, saying that their unborn child can wield it in the glorious new society they will build.
Anakin has to leave now, though, because Obi-Wan has been on the run all this time and has just been tracked down to Mustafar. Anakin starts off wearing the Vader mask but takes it off almost immediately. He thinks that Obi-Wan has been sadly misguided by the Jedi Order all his life, which makes him dangerous to the security of the Empire regardless of their personal history together. Their duel ends a bit differently, as they make their way up to the rim of a volcano – Obi-Wan ends up stabbing Anakin right though the chest, pretty much destroying his lungs and severing his spine; Anakin then falls into the volcano, lands on an outcropping in the crater and is motionless as he catches fire, making it seem to Obi-Wan that he's got
to be dead. When Palpatine arrives and sees the state of Anakin he says something like "We'll salvage what we can". Then, when Anakin is revived in the Vader suit, Palpatine says something like "Do you remember who you are?" and Vader replies "I am... Darth Vader." It's a more subtle sign that despite Anakin's original motivation being his fear of loss, his actions have caused him to lose everything including his own identity. It also preserves a bit of mystery for the viewer watching chronologically: exactly what is the deal with Vader anyway? Does he remember his life as Anakin at all? Was he saved from death by Darth Plagueis's thing that Palpatine had been talking about earlier? Given that Palpatine said "salvage", could Vader just be Anakin's clone? These questions are set up to be answered in The Empire Strikes Back
confirming that he is
Anakin and remembers everything.
Speaking of preserving mystery, the twins are not named
on screen in this movie. Well, Luke can be, but Leia definitely isn't. Padmé is quickly taken away from Coruscant as soon as the Mustafar duel happens. She doesn't die, but after Anakin's apparent death she's in a deep depression and just reacts numbly when she's told that the twins need to be separated for their own protection. We know that Luke will go to his uncle and aunt; we don't explicitly find out where Leia and Padmé will go into hiding, only that Bail Organa will arrange it.
Some other points:
- That balcony scene with the "So love has blinded you?" banter does more harm than good to build up their relationship and can be cut.
- The deleted scene where Yoda talks with Qui-Gon's spirit ought to be left in.
- I kind of like the idea of post-Mustafar Obi-Wan, Padmé, Yoda and Bail Organa all reuniting on Dagobah, and that being the planet where the twins were born, rather than some generic moonbase. Mostly because of the part in The Empire Strikes Back when Luke says "There's something familiar about this place..."
- We don't need to see the Death Star under construction: it just raises too many questions. Perhaps we can just see the hologram of the plans again.
(I originally posted this fix about a year ago, the day after rewatching Revenge of the Sith
for the first time in years, but it was soon removed because it was the wrong day of the week. I've only made a few changes to wording: the ideas are the same. Before the original post was removed a commenter explained the intention behind how the actual movie structured Anakin's fall to the dark side, how it was all about his fear overcoming his capacity for love and how his immediate leap to committing atrocities was an expression of his self-loathing et cetera et cetera – and okay, I understand, but I honestly think that was dumb and melodramatic and not how people actually behave, so I'm changing it.)

2023.06.11 02:35 IgnoramusPolymath Another "One-Way Speed of Light" post for your dissection (apologies!)
Preamble (feel free to skip)
Firstly, I would like to apologise for posting a topic like this; I have read through many of the "Is this the solution to the one-way speed of light?"
threads already posted on this subreddit and have seen the comments gradually growing more exasperated at having to deal with yet another thread about this, so I would like to say sorry for adding to that. I promise that, if I was smart enough to figure out myself why this wouldn't work, then I wouldn't post it here.
Secondly, I would like to clarify that I don't think that this is
a solution. I have posted it here because the people here seem to be better-educated than me and have a more indepth knowledge of the physics surrounding the problem, and so would be more likely to help me understand why this wouldn't work, if that makes sense?
Thirdly, this doesn't contain a way to measure the one-way speed of light
, just an attempt to try and determine if there is a discrepancy in the one-way speed of light in different directions. (See point 6 below)
The Problem™ (or my understanding of it) In the video that Veritasium posted, he set up a hypothetical scenario, within which there were some guidelines on what is possible within this hypothetical scenario:
(1) There is a way to fire a laser over 1km of perfect vacuum
1:47 - "Imagine you have a laser that can fire a beam through a perfect vacuum for 1km." (2) Electronics that are "together" can be synced perfectly.
2:42 - "Start with the clocks together and sync them up first." (3) Clocks can react instantaneously to the presence of laser light:
1:53 - "Start a timer the instant you fire the laser beam, and then, exactly when it hits the end, stop the clock." There are also guidelines on what is not possible within this hypothetical scenario:
2:08 - "OK, so you need two clocks: one at the laser and one at the end which stops automatically when it detects the laser light."
(4) Electronics cannot be synced "remotely"/at a distance.
2:19 - "You could connect them via a wire and send a pulse from one to the other, but that pulse will travel at the speed of light so it will arrive with a time delay." (5) Electronics that move relative to one-another are no longer synced.
2:53 - "The clock at the finish line was moving with respect to the one at the start, and special relativity tells us: moving clocks tick slow relative to stationary observers." Finally, there is the question being posed:
10:42 - "How about starting with synchronised clocks in the middle and moving them apart with equal and opposite speeds? [...] This only works if the speed of light in each direction is the same; if the speed of light depends on direction, then so does time dilation."
(6) The broader question is whether or not you could figure out there was a discrepancy in the one-way speed of light in different directions, rather than what the one-way speed of light is in a given direction:
4:21 - "What if the speed of light in this direction is from the speed of light in this direction?" 4:33 - "The question is: could you figure it out?" Therefore, any "solution" proposed should be compatible with these guidelines.
I acknowledge that some of these are impractical (like a km of perfect vacuum) or otherwise not actually possible (such as the "instantaneous reaction" of clocks, etc.), and their impact on any actual measurements in the real world might be more than negligible (although I'm not sure to what degree this is true).
Some thoughts on a possible "solution" (Credit to Veritasium for the graphics!)
On the "start" end of the 1km stretch, there is a pair of lasers:
At the "finish" end of the 1km stretch, there is a pair of clocks/timers:
- The lasers are identical in specification.
- They are positioned alongside one-another, with their beams parallel to one another.
- The lasers are synced to fire their beams at exactly the same instant.
- The lasers, once synced, are not moved with respect to one-another.
In the 1km stretch itself:
- The timers are identical in specification.
- The timers can react instantaneously in the presence of laser light.
- The timers are positioned alongside one-another and are lined up to match the two lasers 1km away.
- The timers are synced so that their clock measurements are identical.
- The timers, once synced, are not moved with respect to one-another.
Finally, for the complete setup:
- The stretch is exactly 1km.
- As in the video, there is a perfect vacuum between the laser and the timer, and this remains the case for the first of the two laser beams.
- For the second laser beam, rather than a vacuum, there is a medium placed inbetween the laser and the timer:
- The refractive index of the medium is greater than one.
- The medium is flawlessly homogenous, giving it a constant refractive index along its length.
- The laser is lined up with the medium in such a way that the angle of incidence/refraction is 0° (such that the path the laser follows is the same as if the medium were not there).
- It has 3DoF (can be rotated/reoriented freely in space).
- It can be locked securely into any orientation selected for the duration of the experiment.
The experiment would then be to fire both lasers, note the time difference between the two timers, then repeat in different direction(s) to see if the time difference is the same across all of them or not. NOTE: This is based solely on my understanding that the speed of light through a medium is a fixed fraction of the speed of light through a vacuum (e.g. for a medium with a refractive index of 2, the speed of light through the medium would be 0.5c). This may be entirely incorrect.
Examples: For these examples, the refractive index of the medium is 2.
SCENARIO 1: In the case where the speed of light in a vacuum in the measured direction is c, the time difference measured would be 3,335.641 ns
SCENARIO 2: In the case where the speed of light in a vacuum in the measured direction is 0.8c, the time difference measured would be 4,167.008 ns
SCENARIO 3: In the case where the speed of light in a vacuum in the measured direction is 1.2c, the time difference measured would be 2,779.805 ns
Basically, if there is a difference in the speed of light between two given directions, then there should be a difference in the time difference measured between the two timers in each of the directions.
This solution has been stuck in my head for about a year now and I can't think of a reason why it wouldn't work (outside of the practical stuff like constructing a 1km freely-rotating perfect vacuum chamber, etc.), so I have decided to post it so that I can find out why it won't work and free up the part of my brain that's been occupied by this solution.
Shoot two synchronised lasers parallel to one-another simultaneously -- one across a vacuum and the other through a medium -- towards two synchronised timers and measure the difference in time it takes for the two beams to arrive at the timers. Reorient the whole setup and repeat. If there's a disparity, it may be due to differences in the speed of light in different directions. If not, then I guess the speed of light is the same in the two directions?

2023.06.11 02:35 alrabi88 If you chose not to return to nursing, do you have any regrets?
If you started EP early and never went back to nursing, even if you could, do you regret it at all?
My daughter had a tight, tense little jaw that made for a painful, shallow latch from the beginning. Less than a week pp, I switched to EP because my nipples were destroyed, I was dreading each feed, and I found pumping easy.
I'm currently 7 weeks pp and I keep having friends and family ask if I'm going to try to nurse again (assuming my baby's jaw has chilled out a bit with time and age). I just feel so weird admitting that I don't even want to anymore. I have briefly tried once or twice over the past few months and I didn't like it at all. One side was fine and one was still kind of painful, but the whole thing just felt weird as heck. At the end of the day, I just I like the ease of a bottle and knowing exactly how many ounces my baby is taking in each feed and each day. I like being able to go places with just my pump and leave my husband or parents to watch and feed her. I like knowing that the transition will be seamless when I go back to work in a few months.
Every EP'er I know in real life has been more of the "EP is so terrible and difficult; I did everything I possibly could to return to nursing" mindset, and I don't know if I'm missing something because I don't feel like that at all. The idea of trying to nurse and starting over in terms of getting used to everything just feels daunting and pointless. And as much as it bothers me to say it, direct feeding now feels kind of ick and unnatural to me.
But I also recognize that I'm only two months into EP with a goal of 12 months. Will EP wear me down more than I'm expecting? Am I being shortsighted here? Or do I just acknowledge that this is unconventional but it works for me and I might as well roll with it?
Would love to hear other experiences.

2023.06.11 02:34 tacosandcheez AITA for leaving my dads house a week early?
I 32 f, have quite a complicated family. My bio parents f/m 53 have never been together, openly hate each other, and have pitted me against each other my entire life. I could write a book on bad parenting from these two but today I’m going to focus on this specific incident with my father. F is a functioning alcoholic. He has previously had issues with drugs. He tends to get super messed up and say awful things, not remembering them the next day (or at least pretending they never happened). Example: he told me a few months after my wedding that I looked like a clown in my wedding make up or he once told me when I was 19 that as I aged, I look more like mother and that that was a bad thing. Every summer he guilts me to come home and work for him on my break, despite my having a husband, dog, house, etc. and my own life 3 hours away from him. As the people pleaser I am, I end up coming up and wasting my break doing manual labor for his small business. Last night, I had been talked into camping. I did not want to go because we were going alone and that means if he gets in a “mood” I will be his only target for his mean behavior. He proceeded to ramble on about a number of topics including negativity about my husband being two-faced for not disclosing that he’s depressed and sees a therapist to my dad before I married him (not hisbusiness). I lost it and took a walk. He also said I do not understand the political system (I teach government) and that I am stupid for being concerned about women’s rights. He also stated a number of racially insensitive statements about black people and then proceeded to rant about how his mother (a woman I lived with for five years as an adult and love dearly) was a bad mom for “abandoning him and his brother” by divorcing his dad who used to beat/ emotionally abuse her. (He somehow doesn’t believe this) He also threw our camping grill and went on a rant about religion being fake and made a comment about god sucking him off. He also said he wants to die multiple times. I’m giving the cliff notes version because to tell it All would be too long. So I called my husband and told him I’m lying and saying his grandma is sick and he wants us to go see her so I can leave early. I am lying because I’m scared to be honest about it with dad. He’s going to try to make me feel bad since I said I’d work with him for two weeks and it’s only been one. Am I the asshole?

2023.06.11 02:34 Ubermenschz Right approach? (Fullstack VS front/back)
What's the right approach iyo? I want to learn programming, I have zero knowledge. I've searched the internet, and here's what I've learned: some people suggest that I should learn the fundamentals of both front-end and back-end, thereby becoming a full-stack web developer. They also mention that it would probably take me 6-7 months to learn the fundamentals and two frameworks - one for the front-end and one for the back-end. They argue that all beginners, even those wanting to be front-end engineers, should understand some fundamental concepts in computer science and software development that are commonly taught while learning back-end engineering. Thus, being equipped with this knowledge, you become more flexible and can work on personal projects with ease, building web apps because you would understand the back-end, while front-end developers who only know front-end stacks are limited in this sense. On the other hand, others suggested that I should concentrate on either front-end or back-end. They argue that I could learn more during the time I focus on one field and one framework. The main argument was that if someone wants a career switch, it would be easier and faster to learn web development fundamentals, learn one front-end technology or library such as React.js, build some website front-ends, and then try to get a first job as a front-end web developer. Pros: - Comprehensive understanding of web development and how different parts of a web application interact. - Flexibility in job roles; you can work on a variety of tasks. - Better potential to work on solo projects or as a freelancer, since you can handle all aspects of development. - As technology is converging, many companies look for developers who can handle both sides of the development process.
Cons: - The breadth of knowledge required is large; it could be overwhelming for beginners. - It may take more time before you feel competent in your skills and ready to apply for jobs. - You may become a "jack of all trades, master of none," where you know a little about a lot but are not an expert in any one area.

2023.06.11 02:34 G8br13ll I Discovered A New Traversal Technique
| || |
I Don't Know Much About Speedrunning Techniques, But Maby This Could Be Used For It. It Is Helpful For Cheesing Shrines submitted by G8br13ll to tearsofthekingdom [link] [comments]
I Came Up With A Technical Name For It. I Dub It, R.S.C.L. Rocket Startup Cancel Launch. (If You Any Suggestions For Better Names, Comment Them.)
Video One: The Starting Launch If you jump right before/right as the rocket starts, you'll get a huge boost in momentum.
Video Two: Late Timing If your timing is late in re-pulling out the shield you will loose most of your starting momentum.
Video Three: Early Timing If you're extremely early (Usually while Link is still in the shield surfing animation without the shield) Link will begin to ragdoll out of the air.
Video Four: Preforming It Corectly
If You Want To Do It For Your Selfs, Here's A Step By Step Guide I Made:
Step One: start with the beginning launch from earlier. Step Two: quickly hold left on the d-pad to pull out the shield quick select. (Preferably pull put quick select right as/right after the blast ring appears in the back of the rocket.) Step Three: hover over the unequip slot. Step Four: release the d-pad momentarily and press it again. Links shield should dissappear and he should be out of the shield surfing animation. Step Five, hover over your rocket shield in quick select. Step Six, release the d-pad and immediately press ZL+A to start shield surfing again. Step Seven, repeat from Step Two until you want to stop, you rocket disappears or your shield breaks. (In the event of your shield breaking/rocket dissappearing and you still want to continue, you can just continue the cycle with a different rocket shield.)
Hopefully Someone Finds This Useful
2023.06.11 02:34 seab1010 Really enjoying the game.
Diablo 4 is so vastly superior to Diablo 3, especially at launch.
I’m only about half way through the main story and quite enjoying it so far. For my first play-through I’m just checking in for smaller casual sittings and following my nose. Some side quest chains are surprisingly good. I’m not just racing from one marker to the next, skipping text etc. The open world has some really nice memorable locations. The art and music is top notch.
Also not using build guides in the easier two difficulties for first playthrough. Just changing up build as I find gear. Getting the Druid landslide on trample and double landslide aspects has been very satisfying after doing storm for 30 levels.
Combat ‘feels’ more Diablo 2 methodical so far rather than diablo 3 but that might change.
I guess most are onto end game here but big thumbs up for the pre end game stuff.

2023.06.11 02:33 Elegant-Equivalent86 Time to stop
Today I read a post on a relationship subreddit about a fiancée that discovered her fiancé gambled $8k in a week timeframe and was asking for advice.
The responses hit home to me and most said to run far far away. One comment said anyone with an addiction should be avoided.
The comments spoke only facts. More importantly, the comments made me realize that I’m not a good partner and will never be with constantly gambling everyday.
Realistically, we are a walking red flag and I’m sick of feeling sorry for myself. For months now, my paycheck is gone in a day from paying off gambling debts.
I play haitian lottery and basically you play off of numbers you get from your dreams, whatever you see in your dream represents a number.
I am just sick of feeling sorry for myself. I’ve been an attorney for almost two years and I have nothing to show for it as I gamble away from paycheck before it even hits my account.
Money comes and goes, we can always make it again, but life, we only get one chance at life.
As everyone else here, I’m always with the mindset that I can make up some of the money but I’ve come to terms with the loss.
I can make more, a legitimate way, by working hard for it. Don’t let your life pass you by, I’ve decided to make a change for myself today.
Those comments really hit home for me. In reality, we really are a walking red flag with no future.
Everyone has their own vice to fight in life. For some, it is alcohol, violence, gambling, endless shopping and the list goes on.
You are not a monster for falling into one of the demonic vices available to us in life.
We can’t change the pass but we sure as hell can make a chance today to change our future.
Thank you for coming to my tedtalk

2023.06.11 02:33 Yayacroft Finished 6 cycles of ABVD, now what?
Hey everyone! This week I finished my last infusion for 2B CHL. It’s been a long six months and it doesn’t really feel like it’s hit me yet that I’m done. I think once I have my end of treatment PET is when I’ll really start to wrap my brain around being done with active treatment. The anxiety is real lol.
For those of you who are in survivorship after this regimen or a similar one, what has your physical recovery looked like? I know what to expect out of the first two weeks, but I imagine that it’ll take some time for my body to truly normalize. Did any of you struggle with persistent fatigue or pain? Brain fog? How did you manage that?
Also, what has hair growth looked for you guys? I’ve started to have my hair grow back on my head the past two months, while my eyelashes and eyebrows began to fall out. Did anyone experience delayed hair growth or more hair loss post treatment? Any particular tips or tricks to help move things along?
I have an appointment next week with my onc where I’ll surely be asking lots of questions, but I’d love any guidance or tips from my fellow lymphomies.
Thank you all for being a support and resource to me the past 6 months. I’m trying to keep the faith I’ll be NED at my EOT scan! As always, fuck cancer 🤘🏻

2023.06.11 02:32 IrreliventPerogi Deadhouse Gates: A First-Time Reader's Experience, Thoughts, and Observations - Book 1: Raraku Pt. 1
Book 1: Raraku
Epigraph Another entry of Sayings of the Fool by Thenys Bule. I've wondered before what kind of Fool the title refers to; I'm now comfortable saying that these are sort of anti-proverbs, which are examples of folly that must be avoided in others. The fool swims across the desert sands, because he has "seen shells and the like//On this desert floor." Thus, he "swims this land's memory//Thus honoring its past." Curiously, the Fool recognizes the suicidal nature of the task, "For [he] shall drown long before//[he is] done." Also, he is not dying of dehydration, but specifically drowning. It is the past that shall kill him.
The Fool has prioritized honoring the past over his life, the present. Such seems to be our lesson, and given the following chapter (and I assume Book 1 as a whole) being filled with characters making drastic choices for the sake of the past, I feel like this is a most relevant, and thus ominous, warning.
Chapter 1 A new setting, a new cast. I'd known this before I'd started GotM, but it conceptually bothered me far less than it seems to bother others. You learned a new setting and cast in the first book, right? You'd be doing the same if you backed out for another series, right? Anyway, with longer scenes and samples, I can confidently say the prose, characterization, and dialogue are all much improved after a decade's training on Erikson's part. This all also feels very Dune-ish, as well. But without further ado...
Epigraph A poem or excerpt of a poem titled The Path of Hands by Messremb (whom the Dramatis Personae tells us will make an appearance himself at some point) It ties rather closely with the opening scenes of the chapter, so I'll give my thoughts on this once we have some more context below.
The Chapter Itself It is the next year, 1164 B.S. and what is locally called the Sixth of the Seven Years of Dryjhna, the Apocalyptic. We get some indication as to what this means later. Mappo Runt watches a rising plume of dust moving across the desert while informing his companion, Icarium, of what it is he sees. Flat-headed, long-necked, shaggy, and black with three legs, he judges it to be some creature known as an aptorian. He also berates Icarium for his running hairdye. Disguised as a Tanno, the seven-foot, Jaghut-blooded Icarium speculates that their passage has been marked by anyone caring or knowledgeable enough to guess who they are, but such could not be helped. The presence of the aptorian speaks to another impending convergence, one which Shadowthrone is inspecting. This particular creature, ranging wide of its pack, has seemingly fallen under the sway of Sha'ik. We get some slight information on who or what Sha'ik is, but not terribly much. They do hold an army out somewhere in the desert, by a watering hold the two aim to reach.
Icarium eyes his friend, a millennium old, and as a Trell, large with a shaggy mane down his neck and back, bearing long, sinuous arms. He recognizes reluctance in his friend, and calls it out. It seems the aptorian is a demon of sorts, and Mappo is reluctant to face such creatures. Icarium, in contrast, is driven by curiosity and would press forward. They pack up camp and enter the basin.
Later, by nightfall, the two continue into the desert, and we get some nice descriptions of the land and its fauna. resting in some ruins, the two prepare for tomorrow's search. Of note, the sand faintly glows to Mappo's eyes, so I assume Trells can see into infrared? We already knew his sight was much better from the previous scene, but this helps contextualize it. We get confirmation that the land is indeed littered with tels, as that's just how long-term civilization works, especially in a desert. Separated fairly evenly at fifty years apart, there was once a rich and powerful civilization that lived here. Many of the ruins tell of a swift and violent end, although the exact nature of this end is uncertain. From this time, legends of Dryjhna the Apocalyptic have formed, resurging once again across the Holy Desert Raraku.
Curiously, the ensuing thoughts of Mappo, despite their strangeness, are considered "familiar ruts" by the text. Thoughts that deny they can discover what occurred here, that they are "no closer" than they've ever been, and that he has no reason to doubt such thoughts. They're looking for something in the lost past, and the nature of that hunt has Mappo checking himself. In the courtyard, Icarium has found something. Tiny scratch marks along the base of a column, coordinated. Could these be the imprints of passage the Epigraph speaks of? This is enough to suggest to the two that there are D'ivers nearby, and we soon find out why. They even assume a specific D'iver, Gryllen. They anticipate more shapeshifters, and it is now that I should point out that all the characters of this storyline are designated as ON the Path of Hands, indicating that this is a literal path/route which is part of some ritual or ceremony. One which seems to attract many shapeshifters, which is described here as "the fever for which there is no cure." The references to Ascendancy both here and in the epigraphs seem to indicate that this path has some ties with that as well. They also reference gates (Deadhouse Gates?) which some believe offer Ascendancy.
The Path of Hands is a path that leads to an Azath. Not the Deadhouse but the Odhanhouse in Seven Cities. Namely, because they themselves are near Pan'potsun Odhn, and are, well, in Seven Cities, lol. There is a belief that entering the fickle gates of an Azath provides ascendancy. Considering Shadowthrone and the Rope entered the Deadhouse, and Shadowthrone is evidently interested in the goings on here, there likely isn't nothing to the idea, but Icarium and Mappo seem to be heading for it for some other reason. Namely, Icarium's eternal goal, which we receive some indication of.
Icarium has lived for centuries, possibly millennia,* yet cannot remember his own past (whether this is because of magic shenanigans is currently unknown, but immortals with a mundane/finite memory are one of my favorite niche tropes in fiction so I'm all in on this storyline. It may be that he inherited a Jaghut lifespan and a human/whatever memory, causing this, but the continual reference to a curse may very well be literal) and seems to be seeking a way to recover them for what seems are personal reasons. Mappo seems to regret something in his or Icarium's past, considering his friend's curse a gift.
*This also makes his question "how long have we been friends?" into a bit of fun foreshadowing rather than just the tired "catch the audience up" question. He's legitimately asking on top of the rhetorical device.
A pack of six wolves follows them into the ruins, betrayed by their scent to be shapeshifters, or rather, one shapeshifter in six bodies. D'ivers, it seems, change into groups of animals, be it a swarm of rats or a pack of wolves. Absolutely sick. They recognize the shapeshifter as Ryllandaras, but he does not recognize them. The Trell offers to open their discourse, calling him the brother of Treach (an ascendant himself, the "First Hero") whom thought him dead. The creature responds psychically, promising to kill them, but curious of their story. They seem to feign ignorance of one another, an alliance of convenience rather then friendship, boasting that they'd be able to take him on. They do soon give up the charade, calling one another by name as a final intimidation tactic, and this dissuades the pack from taking them on. We get the implication that Icarium resorting to violence would be a very bad thing for everyone involved, such that Mappo is sworn to prevent such an occurrence. The D'ivers does not seem to recognize Sha'ik, and seems to think killing it's aptorian is no big deal. We leave Mappo and Icarium for the chapter with their disagreeing with that diagnosis, but allowing Ryllandaras to pass regardless.
The next morning, the Imperial Harbor of Hissar is filled with a fresh transport of troops, surrounded by native tribesmen and women armed and shouting, building towards a riot. Such are the musings of Imperial Historian Duiker, the same man who defended Heboric in his trial. Meeting him is Mallick Rel, advisor to the local High Fist, also named as a jhistal priest of the Elder god of the seas. That he was merely greeted by the advisor was a calculated insult. Curiously, this adviser has quickly ascended the ranks to get where he is, inviting countless dark rumors of what he may hold over the High Fist, such that any who stood in Rel's way seemed to meet an accidental end. With the ship now unloading is the new Fist of the 7th, Cotaline of the Crow Clan. Although Duiker doubts his capacity to navigate the political web of the Empire, we shall soon see he is more than adept at cowing the locals.
Mallick Rel near immediately insults the man, his words smooth and insidious. The historian remembers his quick-formed dislike of the creature. Rel informs him that the Empress has no active machinations in Hissar, whatever his source. Duiker is here to observe the new batch of prisoners bound for the Otataral Mines. It doesn't seem like a stretch to assume this is the same ship that Felisin and co. were boarded onto. Mages were often used in the Otataral mines so that they may double as a containment facility. While the mages within often went mad, it is unkown if this was from Otatartal changes or Warren deprivation. With the new batch containing so many muggles, long-term Otataral exposure can be studied in depth.
The two are approached by two more, an unnamed rough-looking captain and the lone surviving Cadre mage of the 7th, Kulp. The two newcomers express significant distaste for their new Fist and the Wickan people as a whole. MR inserts himself into the conversation to note that Coltaine is an odd choice, given the tension between the two groups as well as the Wickan's status as formerly one of the Empire's strongest rivals. But Duiker comments that this is not at all strange, Coltaine was the one to unite the clans and establish a rebellion, one the Empire had a terrible time putting down. The Emperor, in his usual fashion, acquired Coltaine's loyalty through unknown means. While the man was placed in Quon Tali backwaters to rot after Laseen's coup, the degredation of events on Genebackis necessitates the maintenance of order on Seven Cities at all costs, hence, the skilled local Coltaine is placed back in command in the face of the prophesied rebellion.
The man himself approaches the seething mob, who had been continuously escalating their hostilities over the course of the above conversation. With a sheer undulating shout he manages to quell them; compelling them to fall in line and quietly move out. Admiring this show of skill, the four comment on it, with the captain mentioning how Coaltine's political savvy matches his savage people skills. Mallick Rel thanks him for the advice. I must admit, despite spending several paragraphs describing how loathsome the man is, that his directness and frankness, calibrated to match the new energy of the conversation such to drop everyone's defenses was very well done. I myself didn't note the Captains blunder until it was pointed out. He may be a schemer but his people and manipulation skills match.
Elsewhere, sailing down from the Skara isles, our Bridgeburner crew of Crokus, Apsalar, Fiddler, and Kalam continue their journey home-ish. Fiddler, for his part, is bored and seasick, internally lamenting his presence. Crokus and Moby attempt to comfort him, with minimal success. The monkey/demon, for his part, has adopted the sapper as many creatures do.* Fid's internal monologue is a delight to read BTW. He internally frets over their coming excursion in 7C, and all the danger the continent posses.
*While I mentioned this before, it is weird to me that Mammot's familiar is just hanging around after his death. There's something there.
Apsalar calls out a school of flying fish, running from something large. Kalam mentions that its odd the hunting fish would themselves be hunted round these parts, being apex predator's in the area. The dherabi of Seeker's Deep hunt them, but they never come out into water this shallow, or on the opposite side of the continent. Unfortunately, a dhenrabi, one who's scent betrays it as Soultaken, far more massive than any natural creature, appears and begins pursuing them. I will say, this is some excellent creature design. Sure, it's "just" a centipede sea serpent, but the added details of how it swims/sinks with filling/emptying it's caprice with air, along with how it uses this to hunt is the kind of creative and interesting detail that makes this stand out without devolving into an exposition dump.
Interestingly, the Soultaken uses the opportunity to out itself by communicating with them. Fiddler uses the opportunity to warn the creature not to approach. It ignores his warning, moving in for the kill, and promptly has it's head blown off by Fiddler using a munition. My guy is just wandering around a fantasy world with a backpack of thermite grenades while being vaguely unimpressed with all the wizard shenanigans he come across. What an excellent character. As an aside, I assume this particular Soultaken was heading much in the same direction the others were, for whatever reason. I also wonder if they survive the deaths of their animal forms. Hours later, they notice some ridders on the coast, a Malazan messenger and his guards. The two Bridgeburners comunicate through glances, one touch I like with this is how Kalam's messages, while clear, are in Fiddler's pattern of speech, as we're in his head.
I'll note the likely importance of whatever this messenger is hoping to convey, but not speculate as there's nothing to speculate about. Also, Blue Moranth are apparently a thing (although they may have received a passing mention in GotM, now that I think on it) and the route that Fiddler internaly lays out gives us a rough idea of some of the geography of this world. Crokus attempts to make small talk, giving the audience a peek into the Bridgeburner's last time on 7C. The time when Kalam and Quick Ben were on the opposing side, the T'lan Imass marched for the Emporor, and somehow, the two were folded into the Bridgeburners themselves. I'll also note the mention of the "Seven Holy Falah'dan" for later. Fiddler demands the boy be quiet, as "all wars are ugly, but that one was uglier than most." Kalam himself only revealed these details while drunk.
Crokus, thwarted from one line of communication, demands that the BBs explain why they're passing almost completely through the wrong continent on their way home. They explain that they intend to assassinate Empress Laseen. Apsalar takes to this well, muscle memory brining an old smirk of Sorry's to the forefront all the while. She remembers that Kalam himself was a master assassin, high ranking within both his time under a Falah'dan and in the Claw, and is thus confident in his skills. For whatever reason, their plans and preparations begin in 7C with the rebellion. Whatever it is they intend to do here is in accordance with Quick Ben's (who can apparently just warp wherever) scheme he was cooking up at the close of GotM. For the sake of Darujhistan, Crokus agrees to the plot; and so we leave them as they land upon the coast.
Well this has been one heck of a setup! Expanding the world while still being constrained to what's been referenced before. Shapeshifters are racing an immortal amnesiac down the Path of Hands, rebellion is closer than ever, and our good old Bridgeburners are scheming to take the Empire down from the head. I, for one, cannot wait to see how it all unfolds!

2023.06.11 02:32 Holanor YA (?) post apocalyptic/sci-fi featuring mutant pig monster
I read a post apocalyptic/sci-fi novel as a young teenager that I think was YA (although very gruesome) and I’ve been struggling to remember the name of it.
There are two plotlines from the novel that I vividly remember.
- There are two families/factions at war with each other and the female protagonist is forced into marriage with a man from a rival factor. A significant part of the plot is dedicated to her plotting to murder her husband and escape while trying to fool the rival family into thinking she is not a threat to them anymore.
- There is a highly gruesome sequence in which a group of teenage boys are restrained/chained up in reach of some mutant pig/human hybrid that cannibalizes them one per day. The boys have to listen to one of them get picked off and eaten alive as they plot their escape. At one point the monster wishes the survivors “Good night” after cannibalizing one of them and the male viewpoint says (gallows humour) “Nighty night. Sweet dreams.”
Does anyone know this book?

2023.06.11 02:30 gummyworms214 Children's Chapter Book?
I can't for the life of my remember much about this book. It was read in story time to my 4th grade class around 10 years ago and it was a fairly new book I believe. We did a project around it that involved making our own magical hats that would "help us travel" with the characters in the book. Now on to what I remember about the book! There were two main characters and a monster or mystical creature. It involved a magical land that was only accessible with these magical hats. It was one of those books that you could imagine the land as you were reading it because of the amount of sensory words used! There was definitely a villain looking to destroy the magical land. The creature was like a guide to the main characters through this land and there was a very distinct word throughout the book that I believe started with a W. That's all I can remember and I really hope someone knows what I'm talking about! I want ti be able to read it again as it keeps popping up in my memory!

2023.06.11 02:30 Ok-Outlandishness489 Girlfriend living in same city as her partner for 2 months. Advice?
I don't even know where to start but I'll give you all a run down of what's happening. My girlfriend and I been dating for 4 years and 2 years cuckolding/ one sided nonmonogamy (this is my first time posting on here so not sure what the right term is for our specific situation). Her job allows her to travel a lot and has to stay places for months at a time. Back in January she visited an office in Europe for 2 weeks to see if she liked it (we live in US). She loved the job and met a guy there which she had fun with and obviously I was all for her having fun while she was there. She’s never really had a long term partner she just usually hooks up with random people on her trips. Anyways she's going back to that office for two months across the world. Idk if that decision was because of the guy or the actual office but either way this is the first guy she's kept in contact with. They talk all the time and he's cool with me and l'm cool with him. She clearly has feelings for him to keep talking this long and she tells me she's so excited to spend her summer with him.
At first I thought this would be fun because I most likely won't be able to visit her so Atleast she'll know someone there and will get to experience a new country with a local and also experience new feelings and intimacy, but the more they talk and express their feelings it sorta worries me. But at the same time it turns me on incredibly. Like the idea of her having a hot fling all summer cuddling going on dates having hot sex is such a turn on, but also so scary. Luckily with her job she has a strict deadline to come home so I'm not worried she'll dump me and stay with him forever but what if you know?
The reason I’m posting here instead of a cuckold subreddit is the feelings part. The past 2 years it’s just been her having sex and me being turned on by that. But now she likes to say things like “I love having 2 boyfriends that love me” sort of as a joke because they aren’t dating but she is serious about liking the multiple attention and love so I think this fits into nonmonogamy. Feel free to tell me I’m wrong or suggest a different place to put this. But the advice I need is, as originally being a cuckold, should I worry? I’m very used to her being with other people just not used to her having feelings for them. I think I am okay with it because we have communicated a lot about it prior to her trip I just still have worries I’m making the wrong choice allowing her to love both of us. Lmk.

2023.06.11 02:29 RelevantFriction Do transcripts matter after 4 years of work experience? Should I take this class?
I'm wondering if it is it worth it for me to take this college class this summer, and some advice would be appreciated. The class I want to take is called 'instrumentation and process control' but I don't need to take it. I have 18 credits left (or 6 classes) and this class does not apply to graduating...
I want to take this class because for one, my work pays for it, but for two, it is super applicable to the industry I work in so I'm really interested. Also I figure when I move jobs or are up for promotion I can use it as a point to market myself.
But I bought the book, and I can read through it and learn it on my own without taking the class... But in that case it won't show on my transcripts. So instead of taking exams this summer for a class I don't need, why don't I just teach myself at my own pace?
So basically... The decision to officially take this class comes down to whether I want it on my transcript or not, and as someone who has been in the industry for almost 5 years - started when I obtained my AS - will my transcripts really ever be looked at again?
What would you do in this situation?
