2023.05.31 06:27 anangrypudge Ghosts of the Deep Final Boss Solo Tips
Finally managed to get my solo clear down to 6 phases instead of a stupid 10 or 12-phase. Of course it's still not a 4-phase like the pros are able to do, but I'm no pro. As such, this is a compendium of tips and tricks for fellow non-pros.
I was on arc hunter but that's not really important as these tips are about general mechanics and weapon recommendations. I still think bonk titan is the best and safest way to do this solo.
- The central section (Heart) will always be one of the 3.
- The key to successfully activating a section is to make Simmumah move. She always starts at the Heart, so if you activate that first, she won’t move. Therefore, it won’t be a successful activation.
- The WQ symbol will always spawn at the section where you kill Vorlog. The circle will always appear along the straight-line path from the PREVIOUSLY ACTIVATED section. So you don’t need to stand around looking for the circle, just run directly back to the previous body part.
- Be conscious when trying to do a finisher on Vorlog or (uncharged) melee him to death. When finishing or punching, your player model will be on top of where he is. So if he’s standing just outside the green circle when you hit the finisher button, even if you were inside the circle at that point in time, it won’t count.
- Killing Vorlog at ANY body part will move the boss there. Even if it’s not the “correct” body part. You can use this to move her to a safer spot if she’s bothering you too much.
- Moths spawn not on Vorlog's death, but when the next Vorlog spawns.
3x Lucent Hive Phase
- If you ever forget to check a symbol before crushing the ghost, all is not lost. Simply rush to the next Lucent Hive and crush it before your timer runs out. The new Vestige will replace the previous one. Of course, don’t forget to check the symbol of this one.
- But note that the symbol of the one you forgot won’t reappear. The Lucent Hive will respawn, but the symbol won’t be there. So you need to do that forgotten one last (third), and identify the symbol by process of elimination.
- After Imbuing the 2nd vestige, clear all adds before going for the third. This clears the battlefield so that the minimum possible number of adds will be present for the 3rd vestige i.e. DPS phase. Note that this “minimum number” is still a lot, I think 6 thrall and 6 acolytes. But killing those 12 is still easier and quicker than having to kill 20+.
- After imbuing the final vestige, one more set of adds will spawn – 6 thrall and 6 acolytes. Don't worry about them yet, your main priority is to Arby the boss (or break the shield if you're not using Arby). This is so that you can get out of the green aura ASAP and be free to roam.
- Don't go looking for the adds. Damage the boss and let the adds come to you, killing them when they do.
- Adds will not respawn. Once you’ve killed all adds, it’ll just be you and the boss.
- But you also want to prepare a safe exit once damage phase ends. The add spawns are exactly the same as the start of the encounter, so if you’re on the far edges of the map, the adds will spawn right on top of you. I like to be close to the water at the end of a damage phase so I can dip in to reset.
- Arby doesn’t just one-shot the shield. It prevents teleports as long as you shoot her immediately after imbuing the final vestige. She can still annoyingly dodge your shots, but she won’t teleport.
- In a pinch, run into the water to escape. You can spend a good 20 seconds in there, more than enough time for your health and some abilities to regen. Just be ready for the mass of adds greeting you when you emerge.
- Alternatively, go through the water to the other door that leads back to the main arena, so that the adds won’t be right at your doorstep when you emerge.
- If you’re invis, the moths can’t track you, but they will still blow up and kill you if you collide with them. So basically just never ever run or jump in the direction of moths even if you’re invis with an overshield.
- Because this is a long fight, it’s in your best interest to make the pre-damage phases go quickly. Otherwise it’s fatigue and loss of concentration that will end your run rather than the actual difficulty of it. Don’t waste time killing adds you don’t need to kill. Just get to the mechanics and only start clearing the field after the 2nd imbue.
- If you ever need a break cos your fingers are cramping up or you're losing focus or whatever, go into the Lucent Hive room that's furthest from the rally flag. Once you kill all the adds, crouch behind a rock on the lower level. The Lucent Hive up there is melee-based so it won't bother you, so you can stay there as long as you need.
- The big question is if you’re running Arby, what heavy should you use? I got the most mileage out of a rocket launcher – Adept Hothead with Alloy Casing, Tracking Module and Explosive Light.
- Tracking Module is the MVP here. ADS for a second till you hear the lock-on SFX, then fire. The further you are from the boss, the higher the chance of a hit cos the rocket has time to curve towards her.
- Alloy Casing + arc reloader mod(s) = very quick reloads.
- Finally, you want to keep picking up heavy bricks during the fight. I was able to fire 12-13 rockets per phase cos of this, which is the key to doing at least 2m damage per phase. This is also why I run double special — it makes heavy bricks rain from the sky.
- 2x surge mods, 1x time dilation. You can also run 3x surge but I preferred to swap 1 surge for arc scavenger to give me 2-3 rockets per brick instead of just 1.

2023.05.31 06:25 daisysml My retail pharmacy is awful
The first instance occurred during my training at a separate store a year ago. I had accidentally dropped some capsules or tablets of a medication I was counting, and I immediately asked what I should do. The technician training me shrugged and told me to just pick it up (bare hands) and put it back in the bottle. Now, even as a new technician at that point in time, I thought this was strange and unsanitary.
A few weeks later, after returning to my pharmacy, I dropped more tablets. I asked the pharmacy manager what I should do. He told me to pick it back up and put it in the bottle. Another instance is I've seen him and other technicians repeatedly count with their bare hands when using the automatic counter (the machine that counts by the weight of the medication).
A few months go by. One day when I am working the water stops working. There was a pipe that had burst down the street. According to my state's law, a pharmacy must have running hot and cold water, and I brought this up to my boss who was also working. He asked the district pharmacy manager what to do, and she said to stay open anyway. My boss is another story for later.
The counting trays are not cleaned between each medication, which some technicians may recognize as important due to certain allergies like sulfa. They are not even cleaned periodically throughout the day. They do not clean between countings of medications such as Warfarin, which some may know is considered hazardous to those not taking it and is disposed of in hazardous waste. I try my best to clean the trays (when I could even find alcohol wipes to begin with).
At this pharmacy, one day, a person (who I will call John) abruptly leaned over the pharmacy counter and grabbed my hand with both of his hands and held tight. On a later date, John had come up to the register twice in a thirty-minute time period, making inappropriate comments. Then, he waited for me outside and watched me walk to my car and whistled a song at me.
Another individual (who I will call Daniel) had trouble with the general store manager (who I will call Sophia). Daniel comes into the store quite often looking for Sophia. He looks up and down the aisles. Whenever he comes in and Sophia is there, she runs to the office and watches him on the camera. Daniel had once sent her numerous love letters, leaving his phone number and such, to which Sophia's boyfriend had called and threatened to call the police. One day, Daniel appeared at the pharmacy register looking to ring a store item out. He had asked me very out-of-pocket, personal questions, to which I had lied knowing who he was as a person. At the end of the conversation, Daniel said, "You know, it's funny how people can't tell the truth anymore. There are really creepy guys out there haha."
Just last week, I was working behind the counter and counting a medication. One of the shift managers comes up to me to inform me there had been a kidnapping in the parking lot and that the other shift manager is calling the police. I don't know all of the details of this except that the person had screamed for help and such as they were dragged into a vehicle which sped off.
(Note: there are no official cameras in the parking lot)
Retail pharmacy is tough. Customers do not like "no" for an answer. Certain medications can be very important, but as a technician, there is only so much I could do in the grand scheme of Big Pharma.

2023.05.31 06:22 No_Lie_11 I was gaslit, manipulated and almost kidnapped by an online "friend"
Throwaway account. Names have been changed. May be triggering to some (mentions drugs and SA).
I'm posting this in need of support and maybe as a warning to people. I'll try to keep it short. Please don't send hate, i know I'm a dumbass for doing this. So I met this girl Betty here on Reddit because of our common interest in raving and festivals. We texted for months and i thought we were good friends. She seemed super nice at the time but reading it back now it's all sweet talk and manipulation. We planned to go to this festival together where it'd be me, my husband, betty, her bf mark and their friend kim.
So, fast forward we arrive to their place and all seems ok. Mark seemed like a bit of an ass but i gave him the benefit of the doubt and assumed he was just an honest guy. He was fucking loaded and Betty was very spoiled by him. He was also a decade older than her. So then we go to the festival and during those 4 days these people fed me lies, manipulated me, love bombed me, gaslit me and talked shit about my husband while he was asleep. They tried to trauma bond with me and be relatable. They fucked with me and my husband's minds. They said they loved me and wanted me to be happy and that i should leave him and join them on festivals and they'd find me someone rich to spoil me. Everytime I tried to stand up for my husband they said i was making excuses for him. They manipulated me so good that i was pretty much convinced and doubting my marriage, pair that with substances and little sleep i was in an impressionable state. Mark also made sexual remarks to me and talked about him and Betty's sex life in front of me. Mark also replaced the drugs we bought from them with bunk shit through their friend at camp who was likely oblivious to the situation.
On the drive home yesterday me and my husband realized everything but we still had to return their camping gear we borrowed to their house and get some of our stuff we left there. We were very much on edge, scared of what would happen. When we got to their house to return the stuff they asked if we're staying the night and we said no. Then Betty called me into her room (she led me way further than expected), half closed it and stood halfway in front of it asking if i was ok. I'm a dumbass for walking in but i was trying to play it cool. Suddenly i heard Mark screaming and cursing at my husband, a door slam and my husband screaming my name. Appareny mark had asked him to sit down and my husband said no, so mark had gotten up and yelled, ready to attack. I bolted out and their roommate was standing there confused while mark was standing by the couch looking pissed off. I frantically yelled my husband's name, opened the front door, saw him, looked back wide eyed and walked out fast. Then me and my husband ran for our lives while the roommate still kept yelling wtf is going on. We got in our car and drove fast to the nearest McDonald's. We got a hotel and the fucking hotel number was the same as their apartment number and i broke down so badly. We had to change rooms.
I'm still in shock and disbelief of this. I'm so fucking angry that they basically ruined this festival for me that I'd spent a lot of money on. Then they had the audacity to try to manipulate me again by saying sorry and a whole bunch of sweet nothings, even lying to make my husband look bad. We're safe now and in another state and have blocked them on everything. We don't want to know what their real intentions were, but they did want me all to themselves and to get my husband out of the picture. We think they wanted to use my body. They also kept trying to feed us and suspect they mightve been trying to poison us. There's so much more to this story but it'd be way too long if i got into it all. These people are grade A manipulators and they definitely had me in their grip for a while..
People, please stay safe out there. This was moments away from becoming extremely dangerous and I'm glad we got out of there. I worry I'll have PTSD from this or if my brain will erase it all, i don't know. Either way, please send support my way. I never thought this would happen to me but here we are. And mind you this was my first time in America and my first real festival. Idk if i want to come back. I'm scared of going to another festival because of the possiblity of running into them. Lesson learned; Never meet people off reddit. Just don't.

2023.05.31 06:20 justneedtorant_ I (21F) hooked up with someone (21M) then got ghosted after he told me he was going to stick around
I broke up with my long term boyfriend a couple months ago. Long story short, he crossed my boundaries multiple times. I tried to work it out but was not happy and was uncomfortable for a long time. I finally got up the courage to end things and have felt free since then. I am not sure if that is valuable info, but he is the only guy I have been intimate with and had sex with.
I got a dating app and have talked with a few guys but nothing really has come from it. I hit it off really well with this one guy and the conversation kept flowing, we went on a date a few days later and it was great. He admitted he was catching feelings, wanted to see each other again, said how I made him so happy, how comfortable he is around me, how he’s going to stick around, a bunch of other sweet bullshit. We had plans to binge watch a bunch of movies and go for a walk. He kept telling me how excited he was, how I should come over sooner, whatever. The only thing we talked about doing was kissing, nothing more than that.
Once I got to his place, we watched a couple movies and things started to progress really fast. He kept trying to move my hand to his dick, trying to get in my pants, and I kept telling him I wasn’t ready and didn’t want to move too fast. I remember one comment he made was “let’s go fast”. That should have been my first red flag to get tf out of there. I just kept turning away, pulling his hand away, but he kept trying. Physically I was into some of it, but I told him mentally i’m not ready for sex. I thought he would stop and be understanding because he told me about a one night stand he had that really messed him up mentally because he needs an emotional connection to that stuff with.
I was battling the whole time in my head what to do because 1) I’ve only slept with one person 2) haven’t been talking to this guy for long at all 3) I didn’t want to be used for sex 4) we didn’t discuss anything about having sex 5) trusted him with all the sweet bs he said. I asked him if sex is all he wants, he said no. He made a comment that he’s still going to talk to me after this because I make him so happy. I gave him a bj so he could finish and hopefully move on.
Couple hours later he is pushing sex again. Eventually I said yes to sex. He was saying the right things, it felt good in the moment. I don’t regret it happening, but wtf it was terrible. Don’t think it lasted more than a minute so I got not a lot of pleasure out of it. He didn’t offer to finish me off or anything, just put his clothes back on and continued watching the movie. He didn’t check in, didn’t ask if I was okay. Now that I write this, there are so many hints that I should have gotten out of there sooner. I asked if he was okay and he said yes, asked if it was okay and he said yes. When I left, he didn’t even kiss me goodbye. After I just rocked his world for a minute, I was expecting more than a quick hug.
Once I got home, things felt weird right away, he wasn’t “acting normal” I guess. I asked if he was still interested in talking and if not to just let me know. He said something like “I am, I just feel off and I don’t know why. It was nothing you did”. Told him I noticed and asked what happened, he said he’s not sure. The next day I sent him something along the lines of that won’t be happening again until i’m ready, made it clear i really wasn’t ready for sex but I did say yes and take responsibility for that, and that i felt uncomfortable with how i’m being treated after the fact. He said he wasn’t treating me differently, it wasn’t anything I did or didn’t do, he just felt off.
The next thing I sent was “whenever you want to talk about it, i’ll listen” he didn’t even open that snap before he unadded me like 4 hours later. Went to my dating app and saw that he unmatched me. Obviously lied to get his dick wet, he’s a good liar. He surprisingly didn’t block my number, so I sent him a snappy text saying “All you had to do was be honest with your intentions, you’re an ass. Hope your next time lasts longer than a minute.” Yeah I’m not proud of that, but it did feel good to send after getting treated like that because it felt like he was messing with my emotions just so he could have sex.
This is definitely a first for me, learned a hard lesson. I wish I stood up for myself more, I wish he took my first no as seriously as he took my first yes. Also he tried go without a condom without asking me first? Yuck. I’m not upset that it happened and that we had sex. I’m upset at getting the silent treatment the next day, how selfish he was, being lied to, and how fucking terrible it was by not even offering to finish me off. There is a lot more I could add and other bs he said to me, but don’t want this to be crazy long.
Just looking for any advice to move on without closure, how to forgive myself, how to not make this mistake again, and/or how to trust someone again. My guard will be up for a while. He put so much effort into talking to me and said so many convincing things that he wanted more than a hookup. I’m just so confused on the 180 of his attitude/feelings towards me. I now realize that I didn’t want to continue talking anyway, it still just hurts to be rejected when I did what he asked for. He said he was emotionally available, yeah right. He ghosted me without explanation and didn’t acknowledge my feelings at all. I understand feelings can change, I wouldn’t be this upset if he was straightforward. But I feel naive and like I got tricked.

2023.05.31 06:20 Jamie2322 How to filter or export group member info
*should clarify first that this is NOT is not a data mining thing for sales or marketing! That's all I've been able to find when google searching.
I admin a few groups. Some of which are for women only for various (and sometimes sensitive) reasons. Some of these get pretty large (one has over 100k members). The group in question has about 4k members but looking at group demographics it looks like about 12 males have slipped through the cracks. When sorting member requests you can filter by gender (although on desktop it is glitchy). But once theyre approved as members I cannot for the life of me find a way to filter the member list down. This is a group that should have zero men involved so I would like to at least see the profiles (I know my own personal profile was listed as a man for like 4 years at one point and still no idea how that happened. I only noticed when I saw a "Jamie changed 'his'..." )
So yea if theres any advice on how to get this info. 4k (and growing) is too many members to search through the profile of each and every member. On the insights, even when exported, it just shows the number and no actual data whatsoever linking to where the data came from. So yea I'm lost and need help

2023.05.31 06:19 pfpacheco Almost got phished
I’m sitting in the McDonald’s parking lot rn annoyed but glad I’m paranoid cause it prevented me from just getting scammed.
Idk if it matters but I’m in Orange County California. I just accepted a McDonald’s order, $4.25 for 1.8 miles. I got here and selected “arrived at store” and was waiting inside for what I realized was a single cookie. As I was waiting a call came in and it popped up on my phone as “DoorDash” so I answered. A man confirmed the customers full name and the location of the McDonalds I was in and explained to me that the order was accidentally sent by the customer and that he was going to walk me through cancelling the order. He also mentioned something about compensating me for the trouble and also that he needed to update some information. I was already sketched out at this point and then the red flags really started to fly.
He told me to exit the store 🚩and instructed me to select the question mark icon in the app and then select “unassign.” As I walked out (and looked around to see if someone was watching me), I tapped the question mark icon.“Unassign” wasn’t even an option🚩. I told him there was no option to “unassign” and he again instructed me to select “unassign.”🚩 I read the options that were displayed and he then told me to select “something else,” so I did. He then explained to me that the company was updating everyone’s transfer(?) information 🚩 and that he was going to walk me through updating/confirming some account information(?)🚩. It wasn’t clear what needed updating and why, but he instructed me to pause my dash🚩. I tried to pause when an order came in so I declined it and paused. He told me to let the order expire from there and I told him I already declined it. Here is where 1000% realized he was a scammer. He said that they were going to give me $150 and that I could spend it on personal expenses and then mentioned something about toiletries!!?? What the fuck. I hung up and ended my dash and ran here and sure enough it’s a thing. I’m a pretty new dasher and I’m glad I listened to my gut.
I started a chat with support in the DoorDash app and explained and they said they were going to call me and asked me for my phone number. The real DoorDash called and I spoke to an Indian woman who was pleasant but hard to understand even though I’m pretty good at understanding people with thick accents (no shade to her, I know everyone outsources call centers). I explained what happened and she listened and all she said was she noted me account. I told her I ended my scheduled dash because of this and now I can’t dash any more tonight and she basically said too bad and suggested I dash tomorrow. Wtf!? I (politely) asked her if I could be compensated for this incident and she said no. I asked her if this was a common scam or if it sounded familiar and she didn’t answer and again said something about noting my account.
I’ve been sitting here in my car outside of McDonald’s now for like an hour, pissed and confused and relieved and now I can’t dash anymore for the night 😑. A McDonald’s employee came out and asked if I was waiting for an order and I explained the scam situation and she seemed kinda confused and said someone else picked up the order but if I needed it to let them know.
All of this was weird af. Anyway, fuck scammers and small orders and stay safe out there.

2023.05.31 06:19 survivalistdaydream Links to Phosphorus
Ever since the “I dream in phosphorescence” line, I’ve picked up on a bunch of possible phosphorus ties in ST lyrics. This is likely just overzealous pattern recognition but I thought some of you might find it interesting.
The basics, for starters: Phosphorescence is a form of photoluminescence that makes an object absorb and then emit light. The general lyric interpretation there is just “i dream of things glowing”, but it can be analyzed further.
Phosphorescence occurs when a substance absorbs a shorter wavelength of light and remits it as a longer wavelength (reminder that on the visible spectrum, violet is the shortest and red is the longest- “I look for scarlet and you look for ultraviolet”). There are two mechanisms of phosphorescence: Triplet- atom becomes trapped in a form of quantum spin Persistent- The absorbing material has a structural defect that the light becomes “trapped” in (for example, a vacancy defect- an empty space where an atom should be). Both of these could be used as metaphors to describe the patterns of pain in ST lyrics.
Phosphorescence is named after phosphorus (even though few phosphorescent materials actually contain it).
There are 4 phosphorus allotropes- white phosphorus (the vapor of which destroys jaw bone, can be used as a weapon), black, red phosphorus (can be formed by exposing white phosphorous to sunlight), and violet (formed from heating red phosphorous in a vacuum). “Choke myself on sacred vapor”, Jaws, various weapon references, recurring night/sun links, “the vacuum I am”, scarlet vs. ultraviolet
I think the frequent use of “entanglement/tanlged” etc is interesting in the context of the memory/Alzheimer’s references. One of the causes behind Alzheimer’s and some other neurodegenerative conditions is that tau proteins within neurons are altered, then build up and cause neurofibrillary tangles.
The process by which tau proteins are altered is hyperphosphorylation, which put simply means that a bunch of phosphates are attached to it. The wikipedia page for hyperphosphorylation specifically uses the phrase “fully saturated”, which I find funny- “darling won’t you saturate”.
Like I said, probably all coincidental- but with ST you really never know

2023.05.31 06:19 kawfeebassie Rules-Lite Narrative Wealth and Gear System
I am designing a rules-lite narrative TTRPG for my gaming community that is borrowing ideas from a number of other systems including Freeform Universal, Forged in the Dark, Fate, Core Micro and even some lighter weight trad systems like What’s Old is New and Savage Worlds.
I have been struggling a bit with coming up with a simple abstract system that combines the concepts of Wealth, Status/Reputation and Experience (XP). The only currency
I am envisioning in the game are Wealth Points, and wealth is used for everything including:
- healing and recovery of wounds during downtime
- the time and resources required to improve skills and abilities (character progression)
- the time to research, locate and acquire gear and equipment (or craft)
- bribes and information broker fees to acquire intelligence information
- travel and other logistical costs
- investing/donating to allied factions to create beneficial future effects for the party
- improving relationships/ties (theoretically by doing things like spending time with them, buying them gifts, wining and dining, etc)
So, as the players adventure in the world, they acquire Wealth Points, which they then have to decide how they want to spend. Got beat up in that last Boss fight? I guess you have to decide to spend some of your Wealth getting patched up instead of improving that gear item or leveling up some skills. Need to buy the schematics for the building you need to infiltrate for that time-sensitive mission, I guess we put off buying that cybernetic arm to replace the one you just lost and you have to suffer a disability until you can earn more WP.
I am pretty happy with the overall concept I have described above so far. I like that players will have to make difficult choices about how they spend their wealth, and spending wealth to achieve goals or make the story more interesting will compete with their desire to keep making their characters more powerful, and even the level of risk they are willing to take during encounters. (There are other resources like Stress and Grit that can be used to deal with consequences as well, so I think tying wealth to recovery will only add a small additional consideration with regard to risky behavior during play).
So, the part I have been struggling with is wealth inequality and scale, particularly with regard to the cost to acquire things (gear, information, etc). The significant difference in wealth status and potential cost of various items from the mundane to super expensive, etc. With regard to gear, there is also the consideration of gear specializations and quality, etc., that I could have as both a mechanical and narrative impact.
So here is an idea I would appreciate some feedback on. Mundane common just have a fixed WP cost, and characters can acquire them easily without making a roll.
Anything that is specialized is given a Wealth Rank based on a step dice strategy:
D0 - Destitute (you can’t buy anything) D2 - Poor D4 - Lower Class D6 - Middle Class D8 - Upper Class D10- Wealthy D12 - Rich
Items you can acquire (physical or conceptual) have a quality rank of 1 to 4:
1 - Poor 2 - Mediocre 3 - Good 4 - Very Good
To acquire specialized equipment, first the player needs to roll a check to see if they succeed in finding the item to acquire, then they roll for cost/quality. They roll the Wealth Rank dice associated with the item X a d4 for the quality of the item they will receive.
The result randomizes both the quality of the item they will receive, and its relative cost. Since the cost is a multiplication factor, they might get a deal, or they might get squeezed on the overall cost which scales up.
If the item exceeds the Wealth Points the player has on hand, then they either need to go it to debt with a relationship/ally, pool WP with other players, or acquire the item using other means
like trade, borrow, steal, etc.
If they do acquire the item, it is tagged with the quality ranking in their gear list and will be used when including the gear in action rolls for advantage/disadvantage. The GM can use the quality of the gear when determining position/risk and effects, and consequences for failures etc (weapon misfires, barrel explodes, expired security card alerts security).

2023.05.31 06:17 Fullies4bullies Pickup basketball game
So I had a membership at 24 hour fitness and there was always good runs there. Of course you had the average players, but the majority of players who played were above average players and there was a few ex-college players. It was teams of 5, first one to 15, 2s and 3s, and winning team stays on. So one day there was a really good team who was running the entire gym off the court. They had 2 D1 guys on there team who played at Hawaii plus 3 other guys who played at Junior college. They were on a 6 game win streak. My team was up next and we only had 4. We needed one more and some small skinny white kid came in so we picked him up. He looked like he was trash and I thought we were gonna get smoked. So the game starts and the other team scored on the first played and this little dude went to get the in bounds pass like he was the point gaurd. In my head I was kinda pissed cuz I thought this dude was just gonna be a ball hog the whole game and we’re gonna get smoked. Well this kid came down the court and hit a 3. Nice stroke too, my confidence in him went up a little but I still thought we were gonna lose. He got the rebound on the next play sprinted by everyone, and on the fast break threw the damn ball through the D1 guys legs and made the layup. I couldn’t believe it. The next 5-6 plays it was just this dude going back an forth with the D1 guy and he was lighting him up. The whole gym was crowded around the court going crazy. I mean this kid was so fast and quick with the ball he was playing like Kyrie. He was crossing everyone up, hitting every shot, and making every layup. I was mezmorized watching this dude play. Dude ended up hitting a 3 in the D1 players face for the win. The other team was pissed off, but at that point I wasn’t even focused on the fact we won. I just wanted to watch this guy on my team go to work. We ended up going on a 7 game win streak before he had to leave. This is where it gets interesting. I asked this guy if he plays college basketball and he laughed. He said in high school he was on varsity as a sophmore averaging 26 a game. Then going into his junior year the school brought in a new coach who completely sabotaged everything. He said that him and this other kid in his class were the best players and this new coach fucked them. The coach brought a bunch of new freshman who he coached in AAU and got rid of the rest of the team. The guys friend who was supposedly the other best player got hurt. When he got healthy again the coach put him on the JV team where he scored 30&32 in the 2 games he played. Then quit cuz the coach wouldn’t bring him back up. Now for this guy he said he averaged 28 with a bunch of freshman around him but the next season he tore his meniscus and missed the rest of the year. Then got addicted to OxyCotin after the surgery and stopped playing basketball. He finally got sober after 2 years and he’s getting ready to play at JC this next season. Oh and this was his first game back from getting injured. I’m rooting for this kid man, I really believe he will play D1.

2023.05.31 06:14 Alive-Hawk8671 The Fabian Strategy: The Art of Patiently Battling Online Spam
Hey guys! I have seen recently that many people are falling victim to online scams. So I have drawn parallels with my experience in the military and how everybody can battle spamming attempts. Check it out! Introduction:
As we weave our way through the labyrinthine strands of life, we find the whisperings of strategy, harking back to antiquity, echoing in every nook and cranny of human endeavor. Strategy, in its most distilled essence, is the master plan—the overarching blueprint that delineates the path to success. Whether it's navigating the blood-soaked plains of ancient battlefields or the binary-coded universe of cyberspace, a good strategy can mean the difference between victory and defeat, safety and exposure.
Our focus today revolves around an intriguing military strategy, borrowed from the vaults of the Roman empire, with an uncanny application in the battle we wage daily in our inboxes against an implacable foe—spam. Ladies and gentlemen, presenting the 'Fabian Strategy'! Define the Military Strategy: Fabian Strategy
The Fabian Strategy, named in honor of Quintus Fabius Maximus Verrucosus, the Roman general celebrated for his tactical patience and guile, offers a unique perspective on how to engage with a formidable enemy. Abstaining the thrill of direct confrontation, Fabius Maximus, also known as the 'Shield of Rome', introduced a military doctrine where patience was valorized, where battles were not always won by drawing swords but by biding time and striking only when the enemy was at its weakest.
In essence, the Fabian Strategy champions a war of attrition, patiently eroding the enemy's resolve through continuous harassment and avoidance of full-scale engagement. It recognizes that rushing into a face-off against a stronger enemy could lead to swift defeat. Instead, it endorses a slow-bleed approach, waiting for the enemy to overstretch, make mistakes, and present opportunities for decisive strikes. Military History: The Second Punic War
Let's roll back the clock to the Second Punic War, a time when the Roman Republic and the Carthaginian Empire were locked in a brutal struggle for supremacy. At the heart of the conflict was the Carthaginian general, Hannibal, a man of remarkable military acumen, who threatened the very foundations of Rome. His tactical brilliance and battlefield victories had left the Romans scrambling for a response.
It was in this dire hour that Fabius Maximus entered the scene. Rather than engage Hannibal's forces directly, Fabius chose an unconventional path—he decided not to decide, not to give battle. Instead, he shadowed Hannibal's forces, employing a strategy of constant harassment, disrupting supply lines, and employing scorched earth policies. By doing so, he effectively stretched Hannibal's resources thin without putting his own forces at risk.
This approach was met with heavy criticism from the Roman public and Senate, who expected a swift and aggressive response. However, Fabius held fast to his strategy, his eyes fixated on the long game. In the end, his strategy paid off. Hannibal's forces, unable to sustain the campaign indefinitely, were gradually weakened, turning the tide of the war in favor of the Romans. Personal Development Application
: The Patience for Spam Prevention
Now, one might wonder, "How can a military strategy from ancient Rome possibly have relevance in the digital realm of spam prevention?" But herein lies the brilliance of the Fabian Strategy—it's not about the literal application of warfare tactics; it's about the underlying philosophy of patience, of playing the long game.
Let's delve deeper into how we can 'out-Fabian' the cyber hordes of spam:
Case Study: Jane Doe's Comprehensive Battle Against Digital Spam
- Don't Rush to Open Emails: The first tenet of the Fabian Strategy in dealing with spam is the practice of restraint. Picture each new email notification as a potential battlefield. Now, would Fabius Maximus rush headlong into an open field against an unseen enemy? Hardly. He would study the terrain, assess his opponent's strength, and gauge the right moment to engage. Similarly, don't leap to open every new email that buzzes on your phone. Exercise patience. Scrutinize the sender's address and subject line before opening the email. If it seems suspicious or unexpected, it's likely better to ignore it.
- Watch and Wait: In the digital war against spam, information is your ally. Keep a keen eye on your email account's security settings, spam filters, and keep abreast of the latest online scams. Much like Fabius Maximus, who understood the importance of knowing his enemy, you too must be aware of the tools at your disposal and the strategies employed by spammers. Regularly updating your spam filters and adjusting your security settings can go a long way in thwarting spam emails before they even reach your inbox.
- Strike When the Time is Right: Once you've identified a spam email or a phishing attempt, the time for patience ends, and the time for action begins. Report these incidents to your email service provider. This act of retaliation not only helps improve spam filters but also disrupts the spammers' operations, much like Fabius' harassment tactics against Hannibal's forces.
Let's walk through the digital life of Jane Doe who I met online in a subreddit of cyber security. She is a modern-day digital person who, like many of us, once found herself beset by spam from all directions. Be it her email inbox, social media platforms, or even her mobile phone—spam was ubiquitous.
Jane's battlefront was not just her email inbox. She found herself dealing with spam on social media platforms, online shopping sites, blogs she frequented, and unsolicited text messages and calls on her mobile phone.
Here's how she adopted a comprehensive Fabian Strategy against digital spam:
- Emails: Jane began by scrutinizing every email she received. She did not rush to open each new mail but instead took her time to verify the sender's details and the email subject. Emails from unknown sources, or those with dubious subjects, were left unopened. She regularly updated her spam filters, reported suspicious emails to her service provider, and never responded to any spam emails—thus not giving away that her email address was active.
- Social Media: Jane was an active user of various social media platforms, which unfortunately exposed her to a barrage of spam messages and friend requests. Instead of instantly responding to these requests, she followed the same principle of patience. She carefully reviewed the profiles behind such requests and messages. Profiles that seemed fishy or lacked adequate details were ignored. She also made liberal use of privacy settings on these platforms, limiting who could send her messages or friend requests.
- Online Shopping Sites: While Jane enjoyed online shopping, she was aware that it also opened up a new avenue for spammers. She made sure never to make purchases from sites that lacked secure HTTPS protocol. She was also cautious about sharing her email address. Where possible, she opted out of marketing communications to avoid unnecessary emails. In cases where sharing her email address was unavoidable, she created a separate email ID just for shopping purposes.
- Mobile Phone Spam: Jane's patience and diligence were also extended to her mobile phone. She did not rush to answer calls from unknown numbers. If they were important, the caller would leave a message. She followed the same cautious principle with text messages. Messages from unknown numbers, especially those containing links, were deleted. She also registered her number with a "Do Not Call" registry to minimize unsolicited calls.
- Comment Spam on Blogs: Jane maintained a personal blog, where she often found spammy comments posted. She took the time to moderate comments, not publishing those that appeared promotional or irrelevant. She also implemented CAPTCHA and comment approval to keep spam comments at bay.
- Educating Herself: Above all, Jane prioritized staying informed. She frequently updated herself on the latest digital security news and spamming tactics. By understanding her enemy, she was better prepared to guard against them.
Over time, Jane noticed a remarkable change. The flood of spam in her digital life had reduced to a trickle. Her careful, patient approach, coupled with timely action, helped her create a safer, spam-reduced digital space. Not only that, but her experience also helped her friends and family, as she shared her strategies and tips with them, raising their awareness and helping them combat spam. Conclusion:
The adoption of the Fabian Strategy in the realm of personal spam prevention is a potent reminder of the wisdom of patience and vigilance in our increasingly connected world. In the face of persistent and evolving threats, a strategy of steady resistance and watchful waiting, coupled with decisive action at the right moment, can turn the tables on even the most relentless spammers.
The Fabian Strategy isn't merely a military doctrine—it's a philosophy, a mindset. It's the recognition that not all battles are won in a blazing glory of immediate victory. Sometimes, the greatest victories come from the quiet perseverance, the patient endurance, the deliberate choices made in the face of adversity.
So, the next time you find your inbox besieged, remember the tale of Fabius Maximus. Remember that patience, combined with the right actions, can thwart even the mightiest adversary. Whether on the battlefields of ancient Rome or the digital frontiers of the 21st century, the principles hold true—patience and persistence can, and often do, win the day.

My thoughts on my baby being in the NICU
- I hate that it feels like I need ‘permission’ to see MY baby. I totally understand that I need to check in and show my ID for safety reasons. However, it’s annoying.
- I have to follow all these rules for MY baby. I can’t just feed her when she’s hungry. When she was on the blue light for her bilirubin levels, I couldn’t just pick her up and hold her. I can’t wear jewelry. I have to use a specific sink to wash my hands before I touch her. I have to make sure the door to the isolette is closed whether she’s in there or not. -It’s hard to pick her up with all her wires and tubes and close the door before sitting in the chair to hold her. - I have seen signs that I’m not suppose to eat in the NICU, but I have ate my snacks because it’s a hassle to leave the NICU and I have to be let back in the room (again safety issue). Besides Dad and I, only FOUR people can see her and only two at a time. Those four people cannot change. There’s also a sign that says no using cell phone while holding baby (I also don’t listen to this, but I DO listen to the rule about cleaning your phone).
- There’s basically no private time with MY baby. When I’m breastfeeding or pumping, I have a privacy shield thing that goes around me, but it’s not perfect. I keep it around me when I’m done because I like the privacy. We’re just in a big open room with other babies and parents and nurses/staff.
- Along with no privacy… I feel watched ALL the time, especially if the privacy shield isn’t up. Sometimes.. I feel judged. I don’t want to be watched while I change her diaper. It takes me longer because all these freakin wires attached to her. Not to mention, I’m a first time parent and it’s been a hot minute since I’ve changed a newborns diaper. I also don’t want to be watched while I give a bath, change her clothes, etc.
- It feels downright WRONG every single time I leave the NICU without MY baby. It’s like leaving my heart behind for strangers to care for it. The feeling is AWFUL.
- I don’t feel like an active participant in her plan of care. Medications were added without us knowing (multivitamin and iron so nothing crazy), the feeding tube moved, she was moved to a new room, and we have absolutely NO say in when she’s ready to go home. We are just told what they are adding to my breastmilk “just extra calories” no real education about it or if I even have the option to refuse it. I feel scared to say no to anything because 1. I don’t want to be judged or labeled as a complicated mom & 2. I don’t want her stay to be longer. I literally just want her home ASAP. Plus, sometimes you don’t know what questions to ask. You don’t know what you don’t know. I also find it annoying that doctors don’t call and update you consistently. I get not calling everyday if nothing has changed but I think at the minimum, docs should be calling every 3 days. (Docs for adults call a family member everyday if asked/appropriate where I work).
- The alarms give me anxiety. In nursing school, it’s stressed “focus on the patient, not the machine / treat the patient, not the machine.” Well, it seems like there’s always some alarm going off in here. It makes me look up at her monitor and hope it’s not her. When it is her, I’m thinking “is she okay?! What can I do?!” Most of the time, she fixes her wacky vitals herself and quickly. Now that we are getting close to discharge, I am REALLY discouraged when she, for example, has a heart rate drop. This pushes the discharge date back every time it happens. Back to my nursing school knowledge, every heart rate drop that I have seen with her… she has LOOKED fine. She’s breathing with no color changes and it lasts like a second or two. Soooo it’s just really really distressful, upsetting, and discouraging.
- The drive back and forth SUCKS! It also sucks to plan around her ‘care times’ (the times that she gets vitals, diaper changed, and fed). That also goes back to I can’t just feed her whenever… she’s on a schedule. But if she were at home, she would be fed when she showed signs of hunger not at specific times.
- I feel like a LOT of my precious maternity leave has been ‘wasted.’ I haven’t gotten to spend nearly as much time with her as I want because it’s hard staying in this room. Plus, I don’t want to be at the hospital, I actually want to be home, but I want her WITH me at homeeeeeee.
- I feel like I have missed a LOT of bonding time with my baby. I feel very very robbed of my time with her & the experience I had in mind for delivery / postpartum.
In summary, having a baby in the NICU is really difficult. I will say I know there are rules and schedules for these sweet babies for a reason. Our nurses have been extremely kind and update us when we come here or call. I am VERY thankful for all my daughters nurses & nothing about my post is negative to them. Even the privacy comment, I appreciate them checking on us and making sure we’re okay. It’s definitely taken a toll on me mentally, BUT she has been improving and getting stronger every day. I’m thankful she’s really just in the NICU because she was born prematurely & no other concerns. I know it could be worse and I am so so thankful she’s doing well and I KNOW she’s where she needs to be and the staff are taking good care of her. ❤️

2023.05.31 06:07 LeSydBarret 7780 text from AT&T (attwrls) regarding HBO Max
I ended up getting a text from a 4 digit phone number, usually I get those from AT&T. Sure enough AT&T is informing me of the HBO max change I'm sure you're all aware of. Except the address is going to attwrls. I looked up if the website belongs to att but the website is blank. I looked up the 7780 number further and someone got a similar text, and it looked fishy. Even weirder someone reported this number on this subreddit and they said it was a scam from an official AT&T reddit account. Is this a scam? I mean its even saying the account holder name, in which the account holder doesn't ever use it. It's only used for official stuff like AT&T. https://preview.redd.it/m13rg6uou43b1.png?width=720&format=png&auto=webp&s=36b978d5e06a39c37a89f49998f3a7593c095bc3

2023.05.31 06:06 LuciaNevermore I have my IPSY items shipped to work because that's where I need the boost in my mood. Today... it sent me off on a 45 minute rant.
(Don't worry... I stayed late to make up for my very long break.)
REQUEST: if you don't like what I said or how I had to say it, just... say that. I'm remarkably open to feedback. PLEASE don't use that name that people like to use that started out referring to racist white women, but now encompasses almost any assertive woman.
Hello [NAME OF IPSY CUSTOMER SERVICE AGENT I was escalated to when the people responding on Twitter demonstrated they couldn't read],
😇 I apologize in advance for the tone. My frustrations are in no way intended to target or belittle any individual. My heart is so full for you poor people that are on the front lines having to respond to the disaster this merger has created. If my language or comments are inappropriate in anyway, I invite you to reply and provide specific examples so that I can do better. Because I try to learn from my mistakes.
I understand that the length of my messages increases the level of reading comprehension required to understand my issue. For this reason, I would like to request a phone call from a senior IPSY customer service person, preferably by appointment. I am not tangiential, rude, or threatening, and if you tell me how much time is available, I will respect that.
My May 2023 GB just arrived, or at least somebody’s 2023 GB arrived. While I understand that the TOU for your subscription service indicate that no particular products are guaranteed, in this case absolutely every single product in the bag is a substitute. Three of these items are absolute garbage because they’re made in China. The only one from a brand that I have ever indicated any interest in is the wrong color. It’s obviously for a much darker skin tone. [Warning... this is where I demonstrate that I think I'm special. 🙄🤣😁] This is not my bag, and for somebody that’s been a customer for multiple years now, mine shouldn’t be the last one to get shipped out. I subscribed to GB in September 2019. I shouldn’t be getting the leftovers at this point. There is no way IPSY matched this bag with me on purpose.
It is unacceptable they so many people have received unwanted substitutions like the garbage ones that I did. This bag is not remotely matched me and I want a new one.
I also did not receive all of my add-ons. Instead of a second bottle of Hey Honey Bee Clear Skin Purifying drops, I appear to have been given a garbage perfume that I cannot use. And that contradicts the preferred scents in my profile. (I try hard not to get my hopes up about anything that I ordered from IPSY because I know that I am not guaranteed to get it at this point like I used to be, but this is a product that I cannot purchase in Canada. That’s why I bought two of them. 😭) It is unacceptable for you to make substitutions for add-on purchases.
Furthermore, it is unacceptable that customers have to contact you to report that their entire order hasn’t been shipped. IPSY should be proactively issuing refunds as soon as you know that you’re not able to ship the entire order. What procedures are in place for the distribution centre to report back to accounting or billing at IPSY that they have been unable to fulfil a customers order? Does your business model rely on customers informing you of the problem? 🤨
[I really should have cut this out because I am getting a little tangential at this point. Oh well. 🤦🏻♀️🤷🏻♀️] This may explain why I have been completely unable to find a hairbrush set that I ordered from IPSY ages ago. I don’t remember ever receiving it, but by the time I noticed that I didn’t receive it, it felt like it was too late to report it, and I wondered if it just might be in my house somewhere unopened, so I didn’t bother. At the time I thought… If you see never shipped the product surely they would have issued me a refund. But if it’s his business model or your distributors business model is to undership and hope the customer doesn’t notice perhaps I should not have been so naïve.
[Warning... more "I'm special" ] I want to know if you want my business or not because if you don’t, I will find somewhere else to shop.
I have been patient. I’ve extended all kinds of grace because I know that this merger has not been easy, but someone screwed up somewhere in a very big way, and we customers have yet to hear anything from the company about the problem. We deserve an apology and an acknowledgement from your leadership that they messed this up. Big time. We deserve an apology from the people that made the decisions that have resulted in this disaster: that shouldn’t be left to front line staff.
I just looked at these products made in China, and one of them is from one of the pseudonyms for Dirty Little Secrets. That alone should be reason enough not to do business with you anymore. I cannot believe that you continue to purchase garbage from this company and put them in your bags. I would rather receive a bag entirely containing Refreshments products because at least they are made by workers in countries where unionize if they wish. Again, your customers deserve a response as to why you maintain your relationship with them. And by response, I mean a blog post or an apology email sent to all your customers.
Are you folks unionized over there in customer support? Because if not, you might want to consider it.
Bullet point summary of what I’m asking for:
* A telephone conversation from anyone in IPSY management that can explain WTF is going on over there (in terms of steps IPSY is taking to address this 💩-show merger, what happened to my May bag, to AND why you continued to do business with a company that is super sketchy and not representative of your apparent company image) and is open to hearing quality feedback from an articulate customer.
* My May 2023 Glam bag. Or any May 2023 bag that has put been put together using my profile.
* My missing add-on item.
* Confirmation that you actually have a system in place for your distributors to report to you that they have been unable to ship out the correct product, that a substitution has been made, or that a product is no longer available.
* A frank answer to the question as to whether or not IPSY wants my business. I may think I’m pretty hot stuff because I am intelligent, articulate, and problem solve in my sleep, and I may feel entitled because I’ve been a customer for almost five years, but I’m not so narcissistic as to think that one customer ACTUALLY means much to IPSY. It would be nice to know exactly where I stand, though.
I made a video of me opening the package because a number of Redditor’s have a recently reported that their interactions with customer service I’ve left him feeling like they were accused of lying about not receiving items. Unfortunately, I accidentally clicked “stop” in the middle, so it is in two files, but if you would like to see the videos, I can send them.
Respectfully and in solidarity (because I know you do not have an easy job),
What I should have had: Aceology Brightening Treatment Mask (my pick), Glow Recipie Strawberry Smooth serum, Love+Craft+Beauty eyeshadow trio in Outta Limits, Pear Nova lip liner in Asteroid, Uvé Beauty blender.
What I got: Elemis Pro-Caollogent Night Cream (UK), Anne T. Dotes tinted moisturizer in shade #8 (??? the package says #8, but I don't believe this is the fairest shade they have... it's not very fair, but it actually might work for me, so I will try it tomorrow and then apologise for that section!)... now the garbage: Give Them Lala Lip Scrub - DLS brand; The Beauty Crop "Brow Friends Forever" - I don't even know what this is but the ingredients start off with "Wateaqua, PVP, Polyurethane..." OMG; and SORICH highlighter - 100% a garbage company. They have three items on their website. 🙄.
And the perfume I think may be a sub for my missing propolis drops is called "Vanilla Sky" by Skylar. It's selling for $18 in the shop right now. I wouldn't buy this if it had been available as a $3.50 add-on. Or a $2.00 add-on. Or... at all. When I grew a tiny human inside me, it resulted in being allergic to large amounts of frangrance... like perfume.

2023.05.31 06:04 love_911 How does increase the bus bandwidth when Data Lane expand?
I'm trying to understand about Lane-scalable feature of DSI. In the specification, There is an explaination that DSI is a Lane-scalable interface. Applications requiring more bandwidth than that provided by one Data Lane may expand the data path to two, three, or four Lanes wide and obtain approximately linear increases in peak bus bandwidth.
I have a few questions. What happens to the bandwidth when the Data Lane expands? Based on my understanding, there is a limitation on the maximum bandwidth of 2.5Gbps. So, if the system has 1 Lane, the SerDes will have a 2.5Gbps bandwidth. However, if there are 4 Lanes, then the bandwidth will be divided by 4. Even if the Data Lane expands, the maximum bandwidth does not increase.
- How does increase the bus bandwidth when Data Lane expand?
- Can it be implemented Four-Lane Transmitter with Two-Lane Receiver in the real case?
In the specification, there is a explanation about Multi-Lane Interoperability and Lane-number Mismatch. "Typically, the peripheral’s bandwidth requirement and its corresponding Lane configuration establishes the number of Lanes used in a system. The host processor shall be configured to support the same number of Lanes required by the peripheral. Specifically, a host processor with N-Lane capability (N > 1) shall be capable of operation using fewer Lanes, to ensure interoperability with peripherals having M Lanes, where N > M "

2023.05.31 06:03 Comfortable-Army-492 Lows
Fasting insulin test came back 36 while my blood glucose numbers have been okay. HOMA-IR calculated 8.4 severe insulin resistance. I've been monitoring with a libre 2 because 2-3 hours after eating my sugars go below 70. Even with eating every 3 hours this happens 1-2 times a day and I feel really crummy for awhile afterwards. I went to the doctor for a refill on an unrelated prescription but I also asked for a refill on libres because I've been woken up twice this past week with numbers in the 50s. This really worries me because I'm the primary caregiver for my 2 year old and 4 year old and I'm legit worried I'll pass out when nobody else is home. The physicians assistant told me not to worry because "you won't die from low blood sugar unless you're taking insulin. You need to eat more carbs".
What?? Is this right?? He made me feel like I'm overreacting. For reference I've been eating low glycemic low sugar, mainly fats and proteins and trying to keep carbs under 20g per meal. I'm 8 weeks out from my appointment with an endocrinologist but the mental weight of feeding myself healthy is so much :(

2023.05.31 06:02 imbriandead I'm gonna miss this
I've known this day was going to come for a long time, now. I've always been a cautious kid, worrying about the future instead of living in the present.
In late middle school to early high school, I spent all my time organizing time to spend with my friends, because I was afraid of what would happen when we grew up and grew apart. I saw everyone talking about it online (probably on Reddit tbh, I've been here a while), and I became so afraid of what life would look like after high school that I made sure to spend all the time I could with friends.
My last day of school is on the 8th. My last day of school ever,
for the foreseeable future. There are so many things I went through in high school that I would've never seen coming. So many obstacles that served to make life a living hell.
But there was also just school. Going in every day, seeing friends, learning things, going home, and spending time with friends after school. I realized back then that this would certainly not last forever and I regret to say that I hit the mark head on with that one. My best friend since 6th grade now lives 3 hours away. My friend group is pretty much completely different than it was freshman year (barring my best friend, the one real one who stuck around, even if only in spirit). I was told to expect this, but I never thought it would happen to me.
It can be so hard to cherish something that can also bring so much stress and hopelessness. Academics can be ruthless. But looking back on it all, I'd say that I don't regret any of it for a second. The negatives tend to stick in our minds more because of how bad they make us feel, but the positives are always there, ever-present, never changing, yet always growing. And you certainly overlook them until they're almost gone.
I know there are going to be a lot
of people I'll probably never see or talk to again after high school, like friendly relationships that never cultivated outside of school. I'm gonna miss them. It's not like you can just walk in just any crowded ass building and be greeted with familiar faces every day.
And, honestly, the learning was fun, too. I worry I'll start living up to my username after I graduate, now that my daily dosage of brain stimulation is gonna be gone. As someone who loves to learn but hates to seek out new experiences, it's kind of a bummer.
For any 2027 kids reading this, know that you've got this. The 4 years really do fly by. One minute you'll be struggling with slope-intercept form, and the next minute you'll be grabbing your diploma on stage. All I can say is this: Value your current friendships, but don't feel afraid to let some go if needed and meet new people. If your town is anything like mine where multiple middle schools merged to form the high school populace, there's gonna be a lot
of kids just like you that you don't even know yet that are worth meeting. Branch out your horizons. Talk to people.
Who knows how much our generation has a problem with that, lmao.
Take your studies seriously, but don't stress over it, either. If your school has a lot of class options and you find yourself planning out your entire transcript, you probably won't end up sticking to said plan. Shit happens, and your life and personality will change and grow. You might not hit your academic goals by the time you hit your senior year, and that's fine.
At the end of the day, everyone walks back to their seat with a diploma in hand. And after high school, nobody cares
what grades you graduated with. And, who knows? You might end up doing better than you expected.
As much as the past four years have been hell for me (for completely unrelated reasons), high school has been the one constant in my life that kept me going because it
kept going. I've grown to value what it's done for me. You don't need to be "popular" to enjoy high school. Cliques and popularity are social constructs, anyway. Remember the human in your peers, and I wish you guys the best of luck in this new chapter of your lives as my class moves into a new chapter of our own.
And to all the wonderful mfs in the classes of 2020, 2021, 2022, 2024, 2025, and 2026: it was great coexisting with y'all. Been missing you first 3, and gonna miss you last 3. Peace out, highschool

2023.05.31 06:01 yolkofficial I(18) am reaching out for a room/basement to live in with queer friendly folks so I can get away from my mentally ill/controlling mother and start my adult life
I made a post about this situation I'm in, and a user suggested that since I live in Montana I should post here, so I will. I tried to be brief, but I figure it's better if I explain just enough, because it is a complex situation.
I am 18 and I live with my mom because she tries to involve herself in every part of my life. I can't do anything without her wanting to know. She is emotionally codependent on me and makes me take care of her emotions, often just resorting to be being confrontational or yelling/crying. She makes the family shame me if we have a bad interaction. I can't leave the house because she'll call the cops on me and blow my phone up and drive around trying to track me down. I can't get a job because she'll insist on driving me. If I tried to get a job in secret, she would find out because she keeps track of my sleep cycle throughout the weeks, and she would find out easily even if I snuck out at night. I can't drive because I don't know how, and I don't have anyone else to teach me. She has control over my savings account(which has a little bit of money left over from survivor benefits) and I don't have the login info, nor do I have a way to get to the bank without arousing suspicion as to where I am. If I had someone come over to hang out, she'd want to know who they are, she wants to know everything. She is in severe denial about our parent/child relationship, because there is none anymore, it's been that way for the last several years. It's becoming more uncomfortable as the months pass and I'm tired of living life in fear of her emotions. She provides food, she drives me around, she gets me to my appointments, hell if she's got extra money she'll just buy random crap for me, but I am miserable. When I say I can't leave, I mean it, I'm not being lazy, I wish it was that simple(I ran off to a job corps but I was struggling to keep up with caring/grooming myself and I did a dumb thing and got kicked out, that was my ten months break from home but I still couldn't get a grip on my independence and ended up right back at home), because if I just left with the $50 in my pocket, I'd lose the items that bring me joy and the hobbies that make me money, and she would track me down. She will
find me if I'm out on my own without someone to make sure she won't try to drag me home, and I'd probably just get shamed for going homeless when I technically have a place to go, but not a home where I'm allowed to be an adult. I need help. In a way, I feel like reaching out is the adult thing to do instead of waiting for a miracle.
I need a place to move into, whether it's a corner, a room, or a basement, preferably finished(but it's okay if it isn't as long as it's livable), I'll take what I can get. There's some items I can't bare to have to hunt down again, and there items that are sentimental to me. I have many things, but however much space you can provide to me is how I'll figure out what compromises I can make. My bike is not one, a bike is important to have, I've gotta have a bike with me cus I can't drive. I can't promise I can get you money for something like rent right away, but I'll definitely try to figure out how to pay you back monitary wise, and I'm happy to help with chores and the like. I'm trying to get involved with disability benefits and help from the state, but I'm basically an adult child being stuck with my mom while I wait, and I'm getting sick of the waiting, my anxiety gets worse the more crap that comes out of this woman's mouth but she still
won't let me leave cus she wants to "help" me with anything related to being and adult and she does this creepy worshiping/begging thing with me, probably anticipating my abandoning her and it's making things more strained. I have a savings account, and maybe about a grand in it, but I can't say for sure that I have it because I don't know if I can withdraw it without her being there.
My plan is a plan that once it begins, it has to be successful or I will be right back where I started and the situation might actually become drastic and unlivable. If you're going to help provide a home, you're probably going to end up being closely involver with every step and it won't be pretty. The plan:
- Move in with someone
- Gain control over the savings account/close it and open a new account. Easier said than done, getting the login info without her freaking out and accusing me of not trusting her is the biggest obstacle, though I figure if I bring my ID and one of the monthly statements they sent to my house something could be worked out.
- Gain control of my phone plan(she has the phone on her account, it's paid for with my money, but she has the number associated with her account.) This is more complicated because I dropped my money on this phone(lol $1,400 and the camera still can't take a decent picture of the moon) and I don't want to ditch it, so I plan on going to the store and telling them I need to open my own account and get a new number, but that I had paid for the phone originally, hopefully that'll make sense to them. I know my mom doesn't track me through my phone or my internet use, so I'm good there, but I should be the one managing that account, not her.
- Learn to drive. I've got my permit to learn(only cus I ran away to a job corps for some time[failed]), and I've got till next January to get those six months in, and I would need help with that learning to drive part.
- Get connected with the community, more for fun, but then I'll be able to start getting a social life and network so I won't be worried about feeling outcast.
Of course I do intend on moving out as soon as the state can provide me disability and housing, but that's gonna take a while. I ask for at least a year, I don't want to be in your place more than a year, I'll be doing my darnest to start taking care of myself. I've got my own past beyond my mom to deal with, and living in this situation prohibits me from healing.
You probably want to know what I'm like, so I'll tell you this: I'm very much a people's person, I'll talk about absolutely nothing, and I'm witty(but not in an obnoxious attention seeking personality way). I'm creative and have many hobbies(knitting, crochet, writing, drawing, magazine collages, and many more), and I like gaming, big fan of the older CoD games. I don't smoke/vape in any sort of way(though I don't care if you do, just know that I'm
clean), nor do I engage in any hardcore drug use(I do
care about that being around that sort of thing, I only tolerate pot/psychedelics), yarn is my drug of choice. Speaking of drugs, I do have some prescriptions, one of those being some testosterone for my transition (that being the reason I'm asking for a queer friendly home, I don't want to waste either of our times if you don't feel comfortable with that), which is a gel, so you won't have any needles lying around(which is the main method most trans ftms use for hormone therapy), and I will keep the gel and all my other meds locked away. I promise that my transition has no relevancy to my stay, I'm just informing you in case that would influence your decision, because some people get really hostile at the thought of trans people. Otherwise I'm just some guy. The other thing I should mention is my disabilities, doesn't worry, nothing that makes me dangerous, just autism/ADHD/anxiety/depression, overall I maintain an outgoing attitude when I'm around others. I will say I don't want to be in a house with kids because I say a lot of vulgaedgy things when I feel safe/relaxed and I wouldn't want that rubbing off on them, but if it comes down to it, I would be willing to work on being more tact. I just want to make it clear again that I do not want to be in your home if me being queer bothers you, don't need to put that stress on each other.
I'm open to living with a family, or a group of friends looking for another pal, or just someone who can be a great help with helping me integrate myself into the world/taking control of my role as an adult. If you've got space and you're willing, or you know someone who is willing, let me know. I'm posting purely out of desperation and I'm reaching out because I only know I'm alive at this point because I'm typing this post, and I'm tired of living life like this. Thank you for your time. (Of course if there is a better place for this, please let me know)

2023.05.31 05:59 Key-Indication-8085 Coming home and being unloaded on.
Came home from work after picking up our kid(4) from child care. My wife (39F) has been home since her job at the school ended this semester. She's on the couch looking like she'd slept there and watching a movie. She greets our daughter, cooks some leftovers, and goes upstairs while me(39m) and our kid stay downstairs to watch Lion King and eat dinner. No biggie.
Towards the end, I hear my wife on the stairs, out of sight, just sitting and sniffling. I figured it was allergies as she's complained about it but eventually comes out and sits at dinner table across from us as we're eating. From there, she begins to just unload all her frustrations about me and my family. Blaming me again for things of the past like not getting her help while we lived in Germany, getting her home in time to see her mom in the hospital before she died, not being there for her, not being on same spiritual level as her. How I cheated on her, how I was at fault for allowing her to open up marriage so she could date women, how my family and I want to put her in the looney bin, how I didn't help her get on depression meds when she told me she needed them. That too much has happened already, and she expressed already how she was done with the relationship, and I just kept holding on and forcing the relationship to go on. Lots of claims, many false or half truths. My previous posts would better explain of them.
Anyhow, I let her rant while holding our kid, who's trying to eat and watch TV during this. I felt sad that this was happening as we'd had a talking a few nights before that seemed positive. I don't know what triggered this at all. I tried to talk and asked for elaboration on a few claims but didn't get far. Tried telling her my side on a few of the stories she still claims I lie about because her feelings are her intuition, which make them full truths and anything I say a damn lie. It was very one-sided, nothing I said was taken with a grain of salt and bluntly told I'm a liar and mental abuser.
She goes silent and leaves again. I tried asking for clarification on some issues. I noticed hypocrisy in after some time, and she just says she's tired of having to explain it to me and is just done.
I also noticed she posts on Facebook and tiktok before I even arrive home about how I'm breaking her and a mental abuser. Looks like I'm in for a fun ride, so now I'm dead set on getting a consultation with some lawyers ASAP.

2023.05.31 05:56 jetkyy I cant increase my androgens
For reference I am 6'1 tall 160 pounds. I am lean and athletic. I regularly play sports usually 2 times a week. I workout full-body for the days I am not concurrently playing sports. Futhermore, on tops of this I have a dialed in regiment. I sleep 10hrs per day, eat 4 eggs a day, eats all kinds of nuts and fruits, and consume 3000+ calories perday, removed seed oils from my diet, dont eat fish but I supplement omega 3s, eat veggies aswell.
But despite all of I still can get my grip strength higher than 105lbs. Its really discouraging to see this number on the dynometer and really has me puzzled why my adrogen status is so low.
What do you guys think is the issue. Furthermore even say that certain aspects of my regiment is not perfect and that is hurting my testosterone levels but would it make sense for my adrongens to be this low even though most other aspects of my routine are near perfect.
