2023.05.31 05:18 thetrivialstuff why is bylaw enforcement so inconsistent around here?

This is probably an unpopular take, but I don't understand why the city doesn't hire a crapload more bylaw officers and have them pay for themselves.
This city has bylaws for all kinds of things, and it seems like only a few of them are actually enforced.
It's confusing, because on the one hand, there are activities that are completely normal that don't bother anyone, and you can do them quite freely, but always under the spectre of "maybe this is your unlucky day." (And for people who are pathological rule-followers, it means they get to have significantly less fun than everyone else, and that's not fair at all.)
On the other hand, there are bad and dangerous activities that really should be illegal, but they're enforced even less and people do them all the time and make everyone's day worse.
To pick just one example, an off-leash dog ticket is between $100 and $300. If finding off-leash dogs in clearly signed leash-only areas were my job, I could easily generate $1000-5000 in revenue per day, and at $45/hour that would only cost the city $360.
I think the city should take this approach with every single bylaw on the books, no exceptions.
And hear me out about why:
This would immediately make it clear which bylaws are stupid and more harmful/annoying than the thing they outlaw. It would let us clean up and simplify our rules, and come away with a city that's both safer and more fun.
If we started actually enforcing dog leash laws everywhere, yes, a lot of bad dog owners would be in for a nasty shock, and a lot of responsible ones with well-behaved dogs with good recall... would also be in for a nasty shock. And that sucks, but I think it's a necessary suck, because that's how we get enough actual dog parks, and big enough actual dog parks, and some number of hiking trails where the signs say "expect loose dogs" instead. There are enough good dog owners in this city to make this happen, and I really believe this is something the area needs.
And afterward, there would be places where the dog-phobic, or even just ordinary hikers and trail-joggers who don't want to be approached by dogs, actually could be reasonably sure they won't run into any, and places where dogs owners would never have to worry about being ticketed.
If we started enforcing all the "no overnight parking" and "park closed after sunset" signs (yes, all of them, a total crackdown), it would start a very necessary conversation about how nice it would be to have more areas where you can park with a takeout meal after 5 p.m. in winter, how nice it would be to be able to stargaze from places like Thetis Lake on a warm summer night, and yes, how maybe we could alleviate some of the housing pressure by creating a few out of the way areas where sleeping in a car for free is legal (and address any other problems, like littering and sanitation/waste dumping, with more specific rules - oh wait, we already have those - and actually enforce those too).
If we started enforcing noise limits for vehicles (not entirely bylaw jurisdiction, but we might as well), all the Harley owners and kids with with after-market fart cannons would be fined into silence... and that's it; I don't think they're a large enough demographic to push back, nor do I think it's immoral for the majority to oppress their freedom of expression in that one very specific way.
(On the other hand, I think it's very sad that Western Speedway is gone and I think we should bring it back, and I think it should be completely legal to put a fart cannon on a racecar and drive it around the track until 10 p.m. on a school night.)
Actually enforcing the laws we have is a good way to get them fixed - especially if we start enforcing them against everyone equally, instead of seeing certain groups targeted more often, with the laws being kept as convenient excuses.

2023.05.31 05:18 SoulfullySkullify My mom’s fucking overbearing, psychotic behavior over socks…

I bought men’s socks, and I am a woman. I have worn men’s socks before, Uniqlo makes the foot part longer for both MEN AND WOMEN. They only sold the style I wanted in men’s, I paid for the socks with my own money. I asked for string to hem part of the socks to make up for the long foot part Uniqlo makes, the psychotic bitch tried to hit me, and tell me I’m an “idiot” for buying men’s socks when I’m a women. They literally only sell the style I needed in men’s, and men’s socks have worked for me before, WTF? Plus, why is she attacking me (trying to scratch me) for asking for thread to hem it? It’s fucking ridiculous, it’s not like you paid for it, plus why is it so hard for you to give me fucking thread? Uniqlo has big foot sizes, it’s not because it’s a men’s sock. I’ve worn men’s socks from other companies, and they’ve been fine. I was just tryna get thread to hem it, then complete my laundry. She lashes out at me, and goes nuts… saying IM throwing a “tantrum” when I’m trying to diffuse the situation, and stay in my own space. I was chilling for a second doing my laundry in my room, when she literally bursts in and calls me a “bitch”, because of some socks I bought… and she tries to scratch me? Fucking psychotic. Afterwards, she literally tries to gaslight me into thinking everything is my fault, I’m the problem, and she needs to call my aunt BECAUSE of me. I mean what? I simply asked for thread, and I was a LOT calmer than you. YOU’RE the problem. Maybe I’ve always second guessed myself my whole life, because my parents always try to tell me I’m in the wrong, even though I KNOW I tried to diffuse the situation… and I wasn’t the one who started this over fucking SOCKS. This behavior… it’s been happening my whole fucking life. Now she’s telling me she’s gonna tell my therapist I don’t know how to do anything, and she needs to dictate everything I do, because of socks… Im done man. These people drive me nuts, can’t get nothing done when they lash out at me for the smallest things. I constantly feel like i’m constantly being too nice trying to make sure I don’t catch them on a bad day, and set them off over nothing. I don’t even want to be in a relationship over fear my partner will act like my parents do. My therapist diagnosed me with bipolar disorder, depression, and anxiety… she asked me if I experienced any trauma or intense pressure in my childhood… My parents constantly expecting A+, shaming me and hurting me if I get less (No A or B…), making me feel like I’m always wrong, making me question myself, kicking me out in the cold/rain (without a jacket/shoes) over small things, making me skip dinner to sit in the basement in the dark, saying I can’t wear things in the “boy” section cuz it’s only for boys, landing me in the hospital cuz they basically beat me up and refuse to admit it, lying to my other family members saying I am the cause of all their problems, saying I’m worthless, saying I’m a “loser”, and they’re a winner, etc… didn’t contribute to it all, sure thing. (sarcasm) When I grow up, just know… I’m gonna be great just to prove you wrong. Everything they’ve done to hurt me, will come back to them. I’ll leave this place, I’ll block their contacts, I’ll live far away, and never see their faces again. I’ve been awaiting the day I leave their grasp since I was 8. I don’t need their negative bullshit in my life. When they have a bad day I shouldn’t have to pay the price for it. I’m not being successful to appease them, I’ll do it for me. I’ll go to a good college, then leave them in the dust. Whenever they ask me for something when I’m older… I’ll say “jokes on you now, you treated me badly — you get nothing from me”. I’ll keep working towards that.

2023.05.31 05:17 Ok_Marionberry_9932 My most successful Blackjack session yet.

I like to test it by seeing how long and consistent it plays Blackjack before It does something not consistent with the rules of blackjack, like sometimes it just places my cards face down and I have to ask it for the card values repeatedly, sometimes it doesn’t check its own hand for blackjack, sometimes it keeps on dealing the same card etc. So I asked what I should prompt it with to play Blackjack correctly.
Prompt: What would the best prompt be for you to play blackjack fully, completely and by the rules be?
ChatGPT: To play a game of blackjack fully, completely, and by the rules, we can follow along with the gameplay and simulate the actions based on your decisions. Here's a prompt to initiate a round of blackjack:
"You are playing a game of blackjack. You have been dealt two cards, and the dealer's upcard is showing. Please let me know your cards and the dealer's upcard, and I will guide you through the game by providing the optimal strategy and simulating the dealer's actions. We'll follow the standard rules of blackjack. Please provide the necessary information to begin."
So I prompted what it suggested, and it worked quite well.
Alright so I have to remind it this is a simulation only and there’s no real exchange of money, And then I have to ask it to pick the random card values that it deals, and use emojis for suit because it just looks better. But it played flawlessly for quite some time, until I was bored and I didn’t have to correct it every other hand. It’s the best I have gotten to perform hand after hand.
Maybe nothing, but maybe food for thought.

2023.05.31 05:17 ZydecoOccultist Were Pirates Really So Much of a Threat That Even a Military Genius Like Julius Caesar Had to Be Sent To Fight Them? Are Pirates just that Better Fighters than Random Barbarian Tribes?

So many ages ago when I was playing Age of Empires, the very first mission of Caesar's campaign was to wipe out a fleet of pirates. I lost a few times and I remember the Defeat screen saying that because Caesar used his own private fundings for the military expedition, he is pardoned and won't face imprisonment, loss of military and political leadership, and nmnost importantly a lawsuit from the Roman government for loss of warships..... But it sstated something the Republic will take over in battling the pirates since Cesar's defeat alerted the Senate just how big of an issue the pirate attacks are. When I won the campaign, it emphasizes just how big a boost it is to Caesar's career that he managed to wipe out the entire pirate coalition.
In addition I finally watched the entire Once Upon a Time In China series for the first time in completeness rather than just stopping at the 3rd movie the last few times I seen the film over the past decades. The 4th movie had Jet Li on the mission to capture the pirates and he doesn't simply use the police but gets an entire militia and round up 50 volunteers so they can capture one of the heads through abn unexpected ship counterattack. He then uses the captured pirate leader to gather intel and attack the pirate base with an elite cadre of volunteers and then continues holding the elader hostage awaiting for the rest of the pirate fleet to attack the enarest town in retaliation for ransacking their unprotected base and in expectation they will try to free their leader by attacking the local prison. He has the complete militia force of over 200 to fortify the town and a big battle takes plae as over 400 pirates besiege the town.......
So this makes me wonder........ Were pirates so huge a deal that not only do local militaries like Jet Li's character in Once Upon A Time in China have to mobilize a military force to defend against them but even a brilliant military mind like JUlius Caesar have to be sent in sometimes to battle them?
Oh I almost forgot, Ben HUr even has a battle between Greek pirates and the Roman Navy that ended with not just the ROman deeat but the Admiral's ship being destroyed and it kicks off the whole reason why Massala was even able to become a charioteer. Because he saved the admiral from drowning, the Roman militaryman takes him in as an adopted son and gives him funding to become one of the best chariot rider throughout the whole empire.
Is this actual realistic? That actual professional navy could lose to a bunch of ragtailed pirates in an engagement?
For a long time I couldn't believe Caesar actually had been sent to fight pirates until I learned recently the event was real. And ditto with the idea of a Roman fleet facing defeat from pirates.......
Just how far fetched is Once Upon A Time in China sending Jet Li to mobilize a militia to defend a community from pirates? Was piracy really the big a danger?

2023.05.31 05:16 Worth-Falcon4275 Trip Report: PCT Section D one-night fastpack

Where: PCT Section D from Angeles Forest Hwy to Soledad Canyon Rd
When: May 13-14, 2023
Conditions: Sunny, high of 78F, nighttime low of 60F, little to no wind
Lighterpack: https://lighterpack.com/nzlooc
Overview: My training plan had back-to-back long runs of 18mi and 12mi scheduled for this weekend. I wanted to turn it from a lonely training slog into more of an adventure, so I decided to try my first fastpack. I found a partner unhinged enough to run it with me, and chose a section along the PCT so I could use the FarOut app to check current trail conditions and water availability. This section was runnable, came close to the goal mileage, had no food storage restrictions, was free of snow, had plenty of thru hikers around for additional safety, and had the North Fork Ranger Station (complete with picnic tables, water cache, and pit toilet!) conveniently located for our overnight stay. We planned to just cancel or perhaps try to find a different route in the event of unfavorable weather, but the weather forecast shaped up nicely in the days leading up to the trip.
Day 1: 17mi, +2700ft/-3500ft, 5:23 elapsed time, 4:48 moving time
My boyfriend dropped us off at the Mill Creek Summit, took a photo of us, and we started up the trail at 2:44pm. I was expecting a long, slightly uphill but mostly flat jog, followed by a downhill into camp. We were met with more of a rolling hills situation for the first few hours, resulting in random intervals of jogging (flat and downhill) and walking (uphill) as I tried to keep my heart rate in zone 2. I typically run in the cool evenings and into the night after work, so the afternoon sun, mild heat, and (albeit relatively low) pack weight made me feel even slower than usual. Or maybe it was my faster buddy running effortlessly on my tail?
We crossed a few streams where we gulped down the rest of our electrolyte mix and topped off with cool, clear water. We lost the trail once, briefly, when we climbed over a large blowdown instead of switching back in front of it, then crested a ridge and began the unexpectedly steep descent over rocks and roots, shielding our faces as we ran through overgrown bushes. After a final short rise, the sun began to set as we flew down sharp switchbacks cut into a steep, brushy hillside. My toe snagged a rock on the trail and I fell, gashing my knee and hand before performing a somersault front-flip to land just off the side of the trail, scrambling a bit to stop my slide down the hillside. After some cursing and waiting for the initial jolt of pain to subside, I determined there was no serious damage and we ran the final 1.5mi down to the ranger station.
We filled our bottles from the cache (thanks Todd!) and located a relatively flat spot to set up amongst several PCT thru-hikers' tents. One group asked us if we had cached our overnight gear at the station before our run, and were amazed to hear that all our overnight gear was in our running vests. I pulled an alcohol wipe out of my snack-Ziploc first aid kit to discover it was dried out... my buddy gave me one from his kit to clean up my knee and hand. I ate 1500 calories of turkey wraps, pretzels, and granola bars; a welcome change from the 9 energy gels I'd eaten during the run. I laid out my Thinlight pad on the dusty gravel and set my Uberlight mattress on it, suddenly realizing that they're the same width and the Uberlight would probably end up touching the ground as I tossed and turned in the night. I hoped it wouldn't get a hole in it, pulled my Buff over my eyes, and went to sleep.
Day 2: 8mi, +700ft/-2600ft, 2:22 elapsed time, 2:02 moving time
I woke up after a restful night's sleep to a still-inflated Uberlight. I ate my breakfast of mountain house blueberry granola (my fave) and Starbucks sweetened instant cold brew (new for this trip but definitely a keeper) in bed. As we packed up, we overheard a hiker asking Todd about trying to catch a ride to a gear shop and post office to exchange his threadbare pack; my buddy was heading home in that direction and was able to offer him a ride to build up some trail karma. We waved goodbye-for-now and set off down the gradual descent, working up a sweat quickly in the direct morning sun. We dipped our shirts in a stream to cool off, climbed out of a valley, then descended to my buddy's girlfriend's air conditioned car at the trailhead. I got dropped off at home and then my buddy drove back to give the PCT hiker a ride before heading home himself.
Gear Notes: New gear on this trip included the Salomon Adv Skin 12 running vest, Thinlight pad, Salomon filter soft flask, and S2S Air Head Lite pillow. New experiences included cowboy camping and no-cook (if that even counts when you can just pack fresh turkey wraps for dinner).

2023.05.31 05:16 Screaming_Mosquito Why does no one acknowledge the hinge?

So... how do I bring this up exactly? I mean honestly how does one bring up what I'm about to bring up? If you're from outside the United States and you have zero idea what I'm even talking about don't worry, the reason I feel compelled to make this thread in the first place is due to the fact that Americans seem hellbent on not talking about how commonly we have to deal with this problem. Or as far as social media goes, that seems to be the case. I've searched and searched, used nearly every search engine, and crawled across the vast array of social media apps and multiple subreddits and made this same thread dozens of times as well. Still, I have come up with zero good faith responses to my inquiry. So I'll just bring it up again and ask nicely like I've been doing in the hopes that I break through to one of you so that you'll actually be willing to talk about it.
So here it goes. Why does everyone act like the continental hinge that exists at the shore-side border of Virginia and North Carolina isn't there? Please, for the love of God, you have to know what I'm talking about. I'm sure there's at least ONE, at LEAST ONE of you who's watched that thing swing open for a few minutes and swallow a smorgasbord of trees, street lamps, street signs, wild animals, or God forbid, a car full of people whole only to close up just as quickly.
I swear I'm going to lose my mind if the responses in this thread act like I'm speaking gibberish again. The hinge, it's located at the apex of where North Carolina and Virginia meet the Atlantic sea as I said, and from that pivot point the split in the continent it causes runs along the NC/VA state line down the NC/TN border eventually ending up at the frontier between Louisiana and Texas. I've made a crude map of it that I pinned to the top of my timeline, so none of you should have any excuse this time to pretend like you don't know what I'm talking about.
I'm no geologist or anything, but this has at least been going on since 98 given that's the first time I remember it happening. It doesn't seem to happen at any sort of regular, predictable interval so I'm wondering if tectonic plates don't relate to what's going on here??? No clue. If you are a geologist yourself, please, I'm begging you chime in. What's been causing this? Do any of you like... ever talk about what's going on? What to do about it? Anything??? Is the government going to do anything? The scientific community? Literally anyone? I'm sorry if I sound desperate I just don't understand why a lot of people I've brought this up to pretend like they've never heard of it or (and this is actually the most common response) just shrug it off like it's not somehow a big deal that a vast chunk of the continent swings out wildly on a hinge into the ocean every now and then, throwing everything laying along its boundary into a dark murky abyss of black water never to be seen again.
This isn't a problem to people? Maybe I'm bitter, or screw it. I am bitter. I am very bitter that everyone has ignored this. I've been bitter since I first learned about this thing when my dog fell into the abyss it created all those years ago. I've gotten bitterer since I've seen people driving right in front of me on the highway get swallowed up because of it. I've grown irate watching all the construction work being done (at least where I am) just to repair the damage to the roads its caused over and over again, only for the people working on it to be seemingly oblivious to what caused it. And worst of all, I've grown paranoid, freaked out, and mentally scarred since the very last time the hinge swung the lower southeast out into the ocean.
That was about a month ago. There's no way none of you don't remember that. There was a blackout and after that an internet outage where I was and everything. The area of North Carolina I live in, we've had a small homeless encampment problem in our rinky dink downtown for about two years now. And then suddenly around the time April rolled over to May, we didn't. I mean I'm sure a lot of you have heard of cities busing the homeless to other cities or locales before, but... Let me just say, in regards to what I ran into and watched happen last month driving down the rural back roads outside of civilization when this last swing happened, I know now that there are indeed people who know damn well that the hinge is there. They know enough to bus all of our town's homeless population to where the continent splits open and wait long enough for it to happen in order to... I think you catch my drift. What I'm still completely thrown by is the fact that the people hired by the city seem to know enough about it to reliably predict when it will occur.
That's why I'd appreciate a geologist's input, or anyone's really. Please for the love of God, tell me you at least know what I'm talking about so I can stop rambling.
Please.

2023.05.31 05:14 ouyoo 26M Friendship, companionship?!

Hellooo :) hope you're having a nice day/night! I've been feeling a little extra lonely lately and while I can handle it well enough, it isn't exactly something I'm fond of so maybe you're in the same boat and don't wanna be quite so lonely too?
It'd be nice to have someone in my life to talk to throughout the day and share everything with, music, memes, every random stupid thought that might pop into our heads. I can be a shoulder to lay on too if need be. I tend to get along with just about anyone as long as you're not a complete asshole, although if you're a bubbly person you score bonus points with me :3
Lil bit about me, I turn 27 this summer, I live in Nevada, until recently I worked in advertising but I dropped that to go back to school full time. I have 3 super cute kitty cats I’d be more than happy to share picture of. I’m a huge homebody but I also love to spend time outdoors, I like things like museums, gardens, zoos and aquariums too. I’m open minded, nonjudgemental, and easy going
I like to play video games occasionally, I used to play more but it’s slowed down quite a bit. My go to right now is Siege but I'd be open to playing other games. I enjoy movies (in love with Studio Ghibli and anything horror! Fantasy stuff too) & shows, music, I’m into hockey, Golden Knights 🥳❤️. I have houseplants, I like true crime, anything spooky, Halloween, I love dinosaurs and sharks, and there's about a million other random things I'm interested in
Anyways, I don’t wanna drag things on so if you’re interested shoot me a chat telling me a little bit about you or something witty!

2023.05.31 05:14 SapphireSparks101 Just caught up with the manga

I'm not sure how I feel about it. I think that for one, the direction is kinda confusing right now. I understand we'll eventually discover what Aquas intentions are with this movie, but currently the narrative just feels confusing and seems to bounce between the characters a lot, and leaves me as a reader more confused. The manga also feels very exposition-y at times, over explaining and reading more like a list of events rather than a story unfolding. Maybe it's me, but the time skips kind of feel unnatural too.
I also find that the idol stuff gets completely shoved to the side once Ruby becomes aware of her father being the murderer. It leads to a tone shift I'm not sure I'm a fan of. Having Ruby contrast Aqua was a lot more fun to read to be honest. It's not like I don't understand why Ruby is the way she is now, but it's frustrating to read. She wants to be an actress now too, and honestly, we've had enough acting arcs with Aqua, Akane, and Kana. We've seen multiple characters grow into their acting and learn, must we go through it with Ruby? I do like seeing her last life brought back up though, and I like seeing it affect her character (although it does seem like her trauma is just suddenly starting to affect her now which is a little contrived for the plot)
Any thoughts ? Agree or disagree? Just looking for a discussion. I'm clearly still hooked it I have the energy to discuss all this lol

2023.05.31 05:12 Mr_Kha My Gaydar and BL

I think, some other gays might know this: Whenever I go out, it can happen that I know exactly that a guy I just pass or sits near me etc. is gay. I do not spot every gay, for sure. But some. I then small talk a bit, maybe we even exchange numbers. I was in a resto, and on the table next to me was a young boy, and after seconds of eye contact I knew he is gay, and he knew I am...After some beer he even signaled me to follow him, while he was standing up and going to the toilet. LOL. I was with a business partner, so I did not dare to follow.
My gaydar is also okay with some actors, when I watch series. But, strangely, nothing when I watch BL. There are only a few actors, Fluke, Tigre (Tin Tem Jai), Gun, Postcard, where my gaydar is waiving.
Take the new hyper-couple Gemini and Fourth: Nothing. Zero. Neither of both give me any gay vibes. I assume therefore that in real life both are (so far) not gay. They are still young, a lot can happen, LOL.
How is it with others?

2023.05.31 05:12 ZestycloseTart4837 I've asked for subs assistance here a couple of times to no avail but I'm back one last time in hopes that someone here will be willing & able to help me out a little bit if possible....

As the title suggests (as well as my profile lol) I have requested assistance a few times but I've never received any and that is totally okay with me because I know that there were/are others that needed the help more than me and I sincerely pray that those people were able to receive the assistance that they needed.... However, this time I'm a little bit more down than I have been and I'm really hoping for any advice I might be able to receive along with the assistance I'm here praying that someone is able to help with!!
So, I officially lost my job (due to no fault of my own) my place of employment decided to supposedly "temporarily" close while the owner focused all his time and attention on opening a completely different establishment over an hour away from where I live. We all can see that ib war barely managing to make it before when my place of employment was only 10 minutes away from my home so there was simply no possible way I could follow my boss over an hour away to the new location hence leaving me temporarily jobless....
I've done everything short of having a total mental breakdown.... My hometown is extremely small and jobs are almost completely non-existent so finding a replacement job has proved to be just harder than I had already anticipated and it's taken much longer (even with me applying to online/remote job openings)....I am constantly trying, I don't want anyone to think that I've just given up and am here looking for a hand out while doing absolutely nothing to better my situation myself because that simply is not the case.
I am here to ask you kind strangers of reddit for any assistance you are able and willing to offer to me with an open mind and an extremely heavy heart.... Unfortunately I'm about out of everything in the house... Now, I've applied for SNAP benefits and my worker keeps saying that this shouldn't take very long maybe 3 days to be approved and then 3 to 5 business days to receive the card in the mail. So, literally anything that'll hold me over (pack of noodles, bread, lunch meat, ect) just whatever cheap, filling stuff that I can find for cheap to hold me over until this happens would be an extremely huge blessing that I cannot even begin to thank you for!! Next is my gas situation (I would be grateful for a gas card or literally however anyone feels the just comfortable doing it) because I am completely out of gas now and I cannot even attempt to go into the potential job locations without it because the closest onesc area still a good 11 miles from my home which may not seem like much to some people but if you seen these hills and stuff you'd understand I think. Also, I have an interview tomorrow at the local dairy queen (I'm literally ready to accept any job I'm offered) and then on Friday I have two interviews scheduled (one for fruits of labor cafe and the other is for the local florist 🤷‍♀️) Like I mentioned earlier, I'm literally ready to take any position that is offered to keep from going under too far!!
Those are my two main concerns at this moment and I would sincerely appreciate absolutely any help at all. Please, just tell me what I need to do and I would be more than happy to do it in a heartbeat!! I'm not sure what else to do or try but any and all suggestions are welcomed!! I can create a Walmart wish list if needed for some of the needed items as they're cheaper there and I also have cash app if anyone needs this information please do not hesitate to ask!! Willing to answer any questions anyone may have... Everyone please have a blessed day and look out for one another!! Ya never know what others are going through in their own personal lives ❤️

2023.05.31 05:12 Fine_Confidence_4209 Regarding her single (per my last post)

Regarding her single (per my last post)
Besties!!! Ok so from my last post where I dropped the bomb that she had a single in 2013, upon my research it has completely vanished from the internet!! There was a music video and everything. I still have it on my phone though maybe I bought it back in 2013 so that’s what I still have access to it in my Apple Music?? I would love to share with y’all but I have no idea how.

2023.05.31 05:10 ZydecoOccultist Were Pirates Really So Much of a Threat That Even a Military Genius Like Julius Caesar Had to Be Sent To Fight Them? Are Pirates just that Better Fighters than Random Barbarian Tribes?

So many ages ago when I was playing Age of Empires, the very first mission of Caesar's campaign was to wipe out a fleet of pirates. I lost a few times and I remember the Defeat screen saying that because Caesar used his own private fundings for the military expedition, he is pardoned and won't face imprisonment, loss of military and political leadership, and nmnost importantly a lawsuit from the Roman government for loss of warships..... But it sstated something the Republic will take over in battling the pirates since Cesar's defeat alerted the Senate just how big of an issue the pirate attacks are. When I won the campaign, it emphasizes just how big a boost it is to Caesar's career that he managed to wipe out the entire pirate coalition.
In addition I finally watched the entire Once Upon a Time In China series for the first time in completeness rather than just stopping at the 3rd movie the last few times I seen the film over the past decades. The 4th movie had Jet Li on the mission to capture the pirates and he doesn't simply use the police but gets an entire militia and round up 50 volunteers so they can capture one of the heads through abn unexpected ship counterattack. He then uses the captured pirate leader to gather intel and attack the pirate base with an elite cadre of volunteers and then continues holding the elader hostage awaiting for the rest of the pirate fleet to attack the enarest town in retaliation for ransacking their unprotected base and in expectation they will try to free their leader by attacking the local prison. He has the complete militia force of over 200 to fortify the town and a big battle takes plae as over 400 pirates besiege the town.......
So this makes me wonder........ Were pirates so huge a deal that not only do local militaries like Jet Li's character in Once Upon A Time in China have to mobilize a military force to defend against them but even a brilliant military mind like JUlius Caesar have to be sent in sometimes to battle them?
Oh I almost forgot, Ben HUr even has a battle between Greek pirates and the Roman Navy that ended with not just the ROman deeat but the Admiral's ship being destroyed and it kicks off the whole reason why Massala was even able to become a charioteer. Because he saved the admiral from drowning, the Roman militaryman takes him in as an adopted son and gives him funding to become one of the best chariot rider throughout the whole empire.
Is this actual realistic? That actual professional navy could lose to a bunch of ragtailed pirates in an engagement?
For a long time I couldn't believe Caesar actually had been sent to fight pirates until I learned recently the event was real. And ditto with the idea of a Roman fleet facing defeat from pirates.......
Just how far fetched is Once Upon A Time in China sending Jet Li to mobilize a militia to defend a community from pirates? Was piracy really the big a danger?

2023.05.31 05:07 rajixib837 Will there be very high level players cheesing noob's adventures?

I'm a Diablo and online ARPG noob. Feel free to insult me for never considering sweating in these types of games, or that I'm on the wrong subreddit for noob questions.
I enjoyed the few hours of the beta that I had available to me, and will likely wait for a sale since I'm not interested in paying $100 CAD for a video game I'm somewhat uncertain about. I'm not totally blind to the Diablo series over the decades (just never played), but am I correct in assuming that it's new thing that other pub rando players are now visible/playing in the same server instances?
If that's the case, and I buy the game in December or something, will I have a bunch of very high level meta sweatlords cheesing the fuck out of my solo attempts at clearing dungeons, or, is the Diablo community generally pretty hands-off with lower level players? Do enemies scale dynamically?
Obviously, I'm not enthused about the idea of having said sweatlords cheesing any challenges I want to face alone or at least with other similarly leveled/skilled players. Assuming there is dynamic scaling, if a meta player arrives, and then the enemies scale up well above my level, am I just screwed?
Also, am I correct that this is some sort of new FOMO tactic, whereby the devs are assuming that if I see a bunch of higher leveled players' gear, attacks, damage, etc. that it will be also be assumed that I'll be jealous in some way and either pay money to skip ahead (which I'm typically not and won't)? Again, I'm not quite sure what I would be getting myself into with this game.
I've played a lot of Monster Hunter World before considering this game, and thoroughly enjoyed it. This game seems to implement PVP as well, which is not super interesting to me, but maybe rewarding? In that game, I was the max level sweatlord who would join noobs, but I'd at least have the decency of switching to lower level weapons so that the hunts would still be challenging for the noobs (and me, since the noobs could die at any time).
Any links to videos/articles explaining this stuff would be appreciated.

2023.05.31 05:07 Delicious_Initial213 Anyone have recommendations on a build for T3 cavalry rush?

My goal has been to try and blitz to the T3 city center for Blinking Dark Knights (@ 10 range total movement) to break archer lines, and since Dark Knights do so much damage with that one last action point (24 * 1.6 (charge) * 1.2 (Spawnkin)) and from an Attack of Opportunity (24 * 1.4 (Ferocious) * 1.2 (Spawnkin)), they can harry pretty effectively on the first turn of engagement and allow my own ranged attackers to get into position.
So far I've been running
Race: Unicorn Mount, Ferocious
Culture: Dark
Society: Imperialist, Scion of Evil
Tome 1: Horde
Tome 2: Souls
Tome 3: Doomherald
Racially, the unicorn mounts are crucial as they allow for a total of 10 movement, thus enabling an immediate archer harry even with max range Awakened/Enchanted/Amplified archers. Ferocious is there to increase the power on their second full health hit they get before they get decimated.
Culturally, Dark has what I think is the best cavalry unit for this strategy. Spellbreakers and Awakeners are awesome, but both can't affect these archer lines without getting pelted for 1 or 2 turns, even on horseback. Feudal Knights may be honestly stronger than Dark Knights and can potentially pair with Adaptable for early access, but Stand Together is a lot harder to proc than Cull the Weak and Feudal isn't as good at Research as OrdeDark is. Bastions are strong units, but I don't feel they necessarily fill this suicide shock role as well. Finally, Berserkers aren't mounted and would have to spend 2 or 3 turns advancing on foot while under fire.
Societally, Imperialist is there for the extra 20 gold per turn from turn 1, which I haven't seen matched in terms of gold generation by any other society trait other than maybe the Shadow Walkers/Perfectionist Artisans combo. This 20 gold grows to 40 pretty early in the game with a 2nd city, and 60 with a 3rd not too far thereafter which is vital for building/rushing the unboosted T3 city center and Dark Knights. Scion of Evil helps brute-force population and found those secondary/tertiary cities faster, and provides the some draft we'll need to actually train Dark Knights when we get there. Even bugged to not give the bonus rank up at Pure Evil it's still a great feat.
Tome-wise,
Horde is there because I don't like Pyromancy. Chaos affinity helps with gold generation for early game armies (both rungs 2 and 3 are S tier features), Spawnkin helps improve the damage of an alpha strike from Dark Knights, Summon Irregulars helps us use mana replace draft gold cost on units and doesn't require expensive mana generating buildings/improvements to keep using, Houndmasters are decent enough, and Battle Seeker Training is just fucking nuts. I know a lot of people are high on Blaze of the Horde, but I think that takes a pretty specific build to utilize well (though I usually end up taking it anyway at some point).
Souls is there to continue the work of Spawnkin by removing gold from our unit production cost occasionally with Bone Golems and Skeletons, and to provide us the much needed Shadow affinity required to move quickly toward Stolen Power. Soul Overflow is also an amazing combat spell to cast, but the soul economy is completely borked and the AI loves to save you mana instead of souls so pick it up at your own peril. Nothing else here matters.
Finally, Doomherald is there to continue advancing Shadow affinity for Stolen Power, to give us a great research and mana generating tile improvement, and to provide us a rather unique (but ludicrously mana expensive) T3 battlemage that can also harry 10 tile distant archer lines with movement (4) blink (4) and its weak AoE (2). I have not tested the Banshee yet in terms of how well it assists Dark Knights in their charge, but lord knows I don't want anything to do with Necromancy as a tome and I'm not really sure if another tome is better than getting Stolen Power faster.
Would love to hear what people think on this, not sure if there is more room for optimization here on any specific area.
