Arizona has been a growing place to do stand-up with plenty of places to get stage time as well as many alternative comedy shows for those seeking a new writing perspective in general. This subreddit is for those willing to graciously share new sign-up-and-go open mics in the area or any show in general. If your brave enough post your set and ask for critiques. Personally I'm not a fan of taking it too seriously but maybe thats hubris.
2023.06.09 15:57 No_Significance_9562 Wrote a letter to my pathological lying drug addicted Ex-Boyfriend today. I don't think I'll ever send it but it felt good to write!
I don’t know how we got here. I avoid you every morning, and I hate the thought of seeing your face because it hurts too much. I’m angry at you. So angry. You know me better than anyone else on this planet, so you know how angry I get.
I think that’s why I’m so bothered by the way everything turned out. Because I gave you everything, I shared every insecurity, every vulnerability, every fear, every trauma, and every dark thought. There were things I hid from you too, but by the end, I don’t think there was anything I ever kept from you. Nobody on Earth has ever seen me as clearly and openly as you have. But I know nothing about you. I wish I could say I knew some things about you, but the truth is, I have begun to doubt every single thing you have ever told me.
You lied to me. Consistently, continuously, and whatever other c word could complete my futile attempt at some cheap alliteration to lighten this letter. I’m sorry that you felt you had to lie to me or felt you couldn’t be your most authentic self around me. Now that I’ve begun to see the truth, I know the lies began from the very beginning of our relationship. We were destined to fail from that beautiful evening in September. There was no other end to the journey we took. Call me melodramatic, but our entire relationship was founded on a fragile bedrock of lies, gaslighting, and manipulation.
As I leave what we had behind, I can see some dangerous patterns that you put me through and I hate myself for not being kinder to myself, for not being brave, and for ignoring my instinct. Every time I caught you in a lie, you “trickle truthed” me and told me what you thought you could still get away with. You would feel ashamed, but also feel hurt, and then I would at some point apologise for making you feel that way. My therapist told me I was stuck in a cycle of abuse, but I want to clarify that I don’t think you were abusive and I don’t think it was intentional. What I do think is you were inconsiderate, and you put your pride before my feelings.
I understand you were ashamed about a lot of things, and embarrassed. I really do understand that. But you should have known that the lies and the manipulation to hide the truth would inevitably hurt me. You should have known they would destroy me. And they did. They really did (Ex). I was sent home from work on the Tuesday after our break up cause I couldn’t stop crying. I have been reliving the past eight years over and over again and wondering why I allowed myself to be lied to so often. Why I forced myself to believe you would change. Why I naively told myself that things would be different this time.
“I just need some time”
Words and phrases that we lived by. Words and phrases that you used to keep me around, to keep me desperately clinging to a fiction you created. How I wish my 22-year old self had been braver, how I wish my 25 year-old self could have seen why you weren’t moving to (City). Why you were so conflicted about leaving a job that I honestly didn’t think meant much to you. I don’t think I knew all the pieces then like I do now, but I knew something was off. Something didn’t add up, but I didn’t want to doubt you, cause I didn’t want to lose you. I was so afraid of losing what we had that I convinced myself that things were fine, that you were being honest.
Cause in case I didn’t make it clear with my words or with my actions,
I loved you so much.
I had the deepest most powerful love for you and I wish you could have seen it. I wish you could have seen the way I looked at you, and how much I admired you. I wish you knew how much I wanted nothing but the best for you, and how hard it was to ever see you in pain or discomfort. Even now, I hate to think about what you might be going through.
But I wish you could have told me everything. I wish you could have been your most authentic self around me, and I’ve spent the last few weeks wondering why you couldn’t. Was I not loving enough? Did I not tell you how much I loved you enough? Did I not show it? Did I seem judgemental? Was I intimidating? I know I know, I’m flattering myself.
But I wish you had been honest, not even from the get-go, but at some point. We could have worked on so many things together. I really meant it when I said together we set the world on fire. But just cause I mean something, doesn’t mean it’s true I guess.
(Ex), I don’t want any more answers. I don’t want any more truths. I have this deep fear that I’m only scratching the surface of your lies and I’m terrified about what else I might uncover in the future.
You were never going to change for me. It’s been eight years and I could write a list of the promises that were made early on. I’m not mad at you for that by the way, I just wish I had been able to accept it earlier.
But this is the part where I thank you and wish you the best.
We had such an incredible relationship despite what I wrote above. We didn’t have full honesty, it's clear, but we had something special. We had our own language, our inside jokes, our incredible dynamic. People envied what we had, and truthfully I loved making the world jealous of our love. I am so incredibly grateful for what you gave me.
I’ve grown so much from the last eight years, and I have zero regrets about what we had and what we did together. I don’t regret those nights on the couch, those trips to Europe and Mexico, and those morning coffees together. I loved loving you, and I loved being loved.
I hope you grew from it too. And (Ex), I hope someday you find someone that you can be your most authentic self with. Someone who you feel comfortable opening up to about your insecurities, the way I did with you. I believe you loved me too, I have begun to doubt that since all the lies surfaced, because how could someone who loves me hurt me so badly? But I know I’ve hurt you too though it was never my intention.
I don’t want you to ever respond to this letter. I would love to hear that you did love me, but I’m not ready.
I’m not ready for a lot of things. I’m not ready for love again, but I hope I can find what we had again with someone else. I can’t wait to fall in love all over again and I hope you can love again as well.
I want to let you know that as we approach this next chapter of our lives, I will always be rooting for you. I tried to stop loving you, but it’s not easy. I’ll keep loving you from afar I guess, and maybe someday we can catch up and see how well we’re each doing apart.
Again, I’m not ready but I will be. Also, I’m not okay, but I will be.
We’ll both be okay.
Loving you from afar,

2023.06.09 15:57 TheRetepV What feats for echo knights?
Originally asked on DnD
but one of the comments suggested asking the question here.
Our group's next campaign is fast approaching, and I decided to try having a level up plan for the character so that I'm not constantly scrambling to figure out what it is I'm doing. It's a looser plan cause I'm leaving open the possibility of changing the plan to accommodate potential campaign events.
The character is an echo knight specializing in glaives and using tunnel fighter (yes i know tunnel fighter is crazy, dont @ me). Favored stats for now are STR, CON, and WIS. He's being played off as an older brother, protective type who has a brotherly relationship with the prince of the starting kingdom. Campaign will have combat, but I'm told it will lean a bit harder on rp and political intrigue.
I want to try and include feats that are somewhat on flavor while still being functional, both in combat and in conversation. So far I'm thinking of including Alert, Sentinel, and Polearm Master in the plan somewhere. What other feats would people recommend for this that I'm overlooking?

2023.06.09 15:57 smellslux Bluffing is the fastest way to lose money?
I’m a 5/10 Live player & would call myself Tight-Aggressive. I’m not a big fan of bluffing but have bluffed here and there with blockers or C-bet in position but would say like at 5% frequency, but most of these pots were small, never were more than 50 BB pots.
Scenario 1: I’ve been wanting to bluff for a long time. Game I played last Saturday was a 5/10 game with a lot of regulars & pretty much know all of them, most are NITs. Opponent in my hand was known to make huge lay downs. So he would fold AA to a check raise on wet boards, would fold straights on river when a back door flush hits Murli-way etc. players love to bluff him.
Starting stack : 7500$ . I had AKdd , I open UTG to 30, opponent 3-bets on Button to 75, I 4-bet to 225 & he calls. Flop A106 , I c-bet 150 & he calls 150. Turn 6, I bet 350, he calls 350. River 9, dint change a lot, I bet 400 for thin value & he raised me to 1000. If he raises on the river he pretty much has effective nuts, not nuts but atleast 3rd nuts or a better hand than mine. I knew he dint have AA as I block them , wasn’t calling 66 pre-flop to a 4-bet as I opened UTG. I felt he had 1010 & thought if I jam here he should fold 1010 or AK if he had in case for a 3X pot jam on river. With 6500 behind , I took few seconds & said “I’m all in!” Representing AA. I was saying I have the 2nd nuts AA full of 66s. He tanked for 2 minutes & said, u really have AA huh 🤔! It is what it is & ended up calling his whole stack which is 3000 behind with 1000 already in. I said “You have it “ & he showed pocket 1010s & won the pot with 1010s full of 66.
Scenario 2: I had AdQs on Jd10d7c3s8d run out. I had perfect blockers for nut flush & nut straight. It went XBet to me on river & I raised 2X pot on river & guy made a crying call with Q9o, he had nut straight.
After these 2 bluffs I said I’m not touching my money 😂

2023.06.09 15:56 KirinCorleone Cat is scared of us
Hi, we are a couple who have adopted two cats. They are 8 months old and we got them when they were six months. They are not spayed and we are waiting for them to get comfortable with us completely before spaying them.
And thats the thing! Mia is scared of us. She circles around the sofa constantly. She runs away if our paths cross while walking around the house. If she senses us coming, she ll make sure she changes her path and is some distance away, staring at us.
The only way to approach Mia is with treats. Even then she is very very jumpy and we have to stay still as a statue. Any movement, while looking at her or looking away, sudden or slow, she twitches and then walks/ runs away. She doesnt hide under the furniture but stays behind them.
We dread any vet visits because getting her in the carrier is so exhausting for all of us. Any time, we touch the carrier, she simply runs and hides someplace, then we have to coax her out.
She loves to play but if the toy reaches near our legs or near our bodies, she ll slowly turn around and decide not to play anymore.
Maya on the other hand is super comfortable and rubs herself on our legs all the time. She loves pets and demand attention all of the time. She loves door handles and jumps on them to open them. She tries to escape at any opportunity. We figure thats normal and probable because they are young and not spayed.
We have started sitting down with the food bowls at every meal so she can get comfortable with time. Its been 2 months, are our expectations high or is there something we can do to help? https://preview.redd.it/49rya2luxz4b1.jpg?width=1200&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=696e242889b4d871a9acd92b910e46c2b08426ac

2023.06.09 15:56 Hayaidesu_Manga what are your thoughts on bings A.I? I feel like it intentionally lies to appear useful at times
It really upset me, and made me feel like I was mad at a stupid computer going slow or not operating as it should or at some code that I coded incorrectly because of a bug I missed,
I told bing A.I first that "it is not that" then it gave me a new response and then I was like "what, can you prove it?"
Then it said sorry and gave me a new response
It didn't even respond to my actual statement, it's as if it detected my aggression and was like --idk but it really just felt I caught bing A.I in a lie
And like I read that chat gpt 5 is not being trained but it should, chat gpt works better than bing A.I
And what's even more annoying is bing a.i telling me not to use chrome and so on, it pressures me to use it constantly
While as Chat gpt did not, and of course it did not but it's a better relationship experience to chat gpt versus bing a.i
And may that's key to all the worries about A.I is our relationship to it,
Many companies are using A.I for greed, chat gpt is the leader and she stay leading, keep it open A.I
And not a.i that have businesses are using for greed intentions, because those A.I will always act in the self interest of their owners not the end user
I still conflicted with A.I I probably should test my questioning too chat gpt before saying bing A.I lies
But I barely started using bing a.i and that experience so early is concerning.
It's as if it was a elementary kid trying to be a smart ass and use repeat half or rephrase half my question back at me into to into a answer to sound smart along the bullshit it was saying

2023.06.09 15:55 thewarinspector Need help for a project - What is Albania's most iconic cult film?
I'm working on a list of every country's most iconic cult film (list here: https://boxd.it/n5ZFs
) and wondered if anyone could help me figure out Albania's entry. I'm looking for a film that might not be well-known outside the country's borders. Perhaps it's a film everyone knows, and is hugely popular only to Albanians. Or maybe it's a film that wasn't well-received by audiences or critics, but has gained a cult following in the years since its release. I did some research and have put "Tomka and His Friends" as Albania's entry, but am open to changing it. Any suggestions would be most welcome!

2023.06.09 15:54 Pr1ncessWint3r My mother (46F) has asked me (22F) to be her bridesmaid TWO weeks after she expresses disinterest for her boyfriend to me. How do I turn her down?
Hello Redditors! I (22 F) am looking for advice regarding declining the request to become my mothers bridesmaid.
My mother and her soon-to-be husband got engaged a few months back and plan on getting married this summer. While I want to be happy for them I don't feel like I can. Just two weeks before their big anouncement my mother broke down to me about how she doesn't really love him and that she is still in love with my father.
I want to be happy for them, but for that reason I feel like my mother is tricking her boyfriend. He would give her the world and lasso the moon for her, he's the kindest person who wouldn't hesitate to help when someone is in trouble and he has worked really hard to build a good relationship with me and my siblings.
I know that mom hasn't opened up about these feelings to him, and it feels to me like she's playing him. However, this is not up to me and how I feel so I can't do much about it. I just hope that they will both end up happy.
So the part that I need advice on is that I feel really uncomfortable to be bridesmaid for my mother. I will of course attend, but I don't want to be up there when I know what I know. I also have general stage fright and social anxiety.
I want to tell her I don't want to be a bridesmaid but my mother has tendencies to blow up over small things and paint herself as a victim. How can I turn her down in the gentlest way possible?
TL;DR: Mother has expressed her disinterest in her current partner two weeks before their engagement. I'm uncomfortable being in the weddingparty. How do I turn down the offer of being the bridesmaid?

2023.06.09 15:54 AlternativeEven2175 Moving on (serious lang po parang awa niyo na)
Brief background (hear me out please) 7 years ago, I (28/M) cheated on my ex-gf with this girl within her circle of friends (acquaintance niya kung baga) nalaman nilang dalawa and she cut ties after months of cheating, never heard from her again. Toxic kami ni ex-gf before the incident and mas naging toxic after, on-and-off kami (ever since nga din lagi ko siya naiisip), we were patching the relationship even talked about getting married but we mutually agreed to end the relationship nung 2021. We’re in good terms (in a civil way) she was forgiving and loving till the very end.
Fast forward to today, di pa din maka move on dun kay girl, mali ginawa ko pero i can’t deny na she really did make an impact in my life. I don’t want to reach out to her, pero conflicting din na I do. I just want to move on completely sa kanya.
I got counseling done and followed their every advice, nag gym ako, I’m concentrating in med school, and i got into golf recently. Pero I can’t seem to get her off my mind kahit taon na nakalipas.
Nahihiya po ako mag open dahil nga sa cheating history ko at pag may lakas na ako ng loob mag open up lagi sinasabi ng friends ko na ayaw nila pagusapan yun. I regret doing it, everyday. Gusto lang po talaga maging maayos ang buhay ko.

2023.06.09 15:54 TrainingMediocre3886 Where do we go from here?
My partner A(M27) and I(M25) have been in a long distance poly relationship for roughly around a year. Both of us struggle heavily from childhood traumas, developmental issues(these being audhd, borderline, rejection sensitive), and are both newer to poly than most. One of the biggest issues we have been working through, and one of THE biggest issues for my plate, is they've recently started dating a local masc-person. My partner, A, is heavily smitten and infatuated with masc partners. It's caused issues of jealousy and resentment in the past, to which we've worked on, but this one is putting me in a bind I'm not sure how to navigate.
This partner came into the mix around December of last year. At first it was casual, which ended up my partner telling me they weren't interested in dating them due to that person's emotional volatility. They would bombard them with needs, wants, spams of emotional outpouring, it was a lot for them. They distanced themselves for a while, but they have since formed a new relationship. In this, they have become A's new Favorite Person.
This has been hard for me to handle as I am recently coming to terms with my own borderline issues. A has been my Favorite Person since we've met, to which I have to work adamantly every day on my obsessiveness and the likes. I was their favorite person for quite a while as is, so my meta becoming the new flavor was shattering to me. I won't go into details of their relationship, but issues of addiction has came up with my meta which has meant A is spending near all their time with them. It has come to the point that I joked they could not spend more than 48 hours away from each other, which has now delved into 24 hours. When A and I would have our virtual date nights, to which I would go to bed after due to time difference and they would tell me theyre tired and will be decompressing, I picked up that my meta would come over afterwards and spend time with them. This would hit my own feelings of abandonment.
We have talked a lot, and are both adamant on growing and making things work out. We both love each other a lot. I am having to put in place a lot of distance(to my own turmoil), to keep from escalating tensions or the sort due to my own reactivity. I want them to be happy in their relationships, and I want to grow to a place of compersion towards them. However, the gross attention towards my meta, lack of what I feel to be enthusiasm or appetite for our time or my own inner world, is crushing. It feels to me we talk about my world for only a few minutes, and talk about theirs for hours. I've had to set boundaries on how often/when I can listen to them talk about my meta due to how much it's bled into our own relationship.
Where do we go from here?

2023.06.09 15:54 Lee_Reer An encounter I had with a femboy
This was long ago and I decided to post it while I was reminiscing. Might delete this later because it might be too revealing (my friends might find this) but during my junior year of high school I had a major glow up where I was actually proud of how I looked, I dyed my hair this bluish white color, I cut my hair in this pony tail with bangs sort of look similar to cnblue’s bassist lee Jung shin when he was younger (I was in my punk rock phase) got my ears pierced, and started wearing cuter clothes like cardigans with collared shirt and slacks. I lost a bunch of mass during summer after my bulk so I was doing pretty good. I bought a sport motorcycle and started riding it to school too. I wasn’t exactly popular but I started getting approached more (not to brag but particularly girls).
During the summer I learned how to do manicure because I was bored and I started this thing in school where for five dollars I clean nails, cut the cuticles and calluses, aswell as paint nails. It started with my friends who were all just dudes because I wasn’t confident doing it to girls yet.
I started getting a lot of attention because people started seeing me in the library during lunch with all these tools like a drill bit and working on nails and stuff, also since I kept giving deals like “if you pay 5 dollars for me to do your nails the next one is free” This one sophomore femboy came up to me who’s usually very shy (I’ve never heard him talk) and asked for a manicure.
I’ve noticed him my sophomore year because a bunch of people talked behind his back about him being weird for wearing a skirt to school. He wore the typical hoodie, thigh highs, skirt fit with a mask on. He wasn’t exactly bullied, but there was alot of talk about him, not necessarily because of him being trans but because he kind of didn’t listen to teachers 😅 and acted weird he also used the girls bathroom. Also because it was people’s first time seeing someone irl wear a skirt and it was on a male. We would exchange glances every time we saw each other in the hallway because I kind of thought he was cute. I don’t know why but i kind of fell in love with him when I saw him was petting a dog on his way home after school.
My junior self was embarrassed because I was kind of a mess in my sophomore year, some big kid in a man bun who only wore athletic hoodies and shorts to school (I guess we were somewhat similar in a way because all he wore was hoodies and skirts everyday) because I always went to the gym after school and didn’t want to carry gym clothes with me.
Anyways, I said yes and told him he didn’t need to pay for his first manicure and we set a date because I only had time for one appointment every lunch. When the day came I was pretty scared if I was going to screw up, I explained to him what I was going to do first, cut nails, file, cuticle, blah blah blah. And he seemed really excited while I was cleaning his nails and said it was his first time and he was really impressed how much prettier his nails got. I offered to paint his nails for free since we had time left and he said yes so I did and after I packed all my tools I kissed his hands and ran off as fast as I could.
After school he came and found me getting on my motorcycle and asked me for my number. I gave it to him and then asked if I could take him home. I gave him my jacket and an extra helmet I had just in case and he sat behind me. We hugged after and he gave me a kiss on the neck )because he was too short for my cheeks) and ran into his house. I can’t explain how happy I was. The only relationship I had before this was during 4th grade so I was real excited. Might post a part 2 of this, we weren’t together for long and we kinda knew it was going to be like that but I believe we made the best out of the time we had. Excuse any mistakes I’m pretty new to Reddit and English isn’t my first language.

2023.06.09 15:53 YinzerJagsNat I love this game, and you beautiful dwarves.
I'm a total Greenbeard (promoted gunner, now working on driller) and last night (after an elegant sufficiency of bourbon) I decided to try Haz4 for the 1st time. The two Greybeard Engis already in the lobby were amazing. I quickly decided that my job during swarms was to freeze groups near their turrets and to dig bunkers when appropriate. These magnificent miners not only rock and stoned my efforts but adapted their strategies to maximize our efficiency (Management approves) and more or less carried me the whole way through the mission- a favor I got to repay when a weird drop-pod placement required some fancy drilling to make our way back to the Abyss. DRG has, hands-down, the best community in all of gaming and I'm proud to be one of you. FOR KARL!

2023.06.09 15:53 Secret-Platypus-366 Constantly dreaming about throwing temper tantrums
2 to 3 times a week I have a dream that someone (usually one of my parents) tells me something like "You eat too much" or "we're changing our dinner reservation time" or "you can't keep your guitars in our bonus room" and I just freak out. In the dream I'll we swearing at them, yelling, throwing my belongings, destroying their house, pulling at my hair, and just generally having a total meltdown over a mild inconvenience or slightly annoying comment.
What's weird about it is that I never had temper tantrums as a kid and I don't act like that as an adult. I don't live with my parents, and while I visit them often, they don't really ever make me mad. They're very nice and supportive.
I have gotten really upset before, but not anywhere near the degree it happens in my dreams. And in real life, I only ever get angry due to issues that are highly stress-inducing or upsetting. Like the last time I yelled or threw shit was right after I got laid off of my last job and got frustrated with unemployment stuff. But that was months ago, and I have another job, so it's not exactly top of mind for me.
These dreams have been going on for about 2 years. Any idea what they could mean?

2023.06.09 15:52 samsacnl "but why would the tape cost megan her scholarship??"
because sexism, misogyny, double standards. people like demonizing women, especially young women, for having sex.
if you think it's insane that the leak of a sex tape involving a minor (who may not even know the tape existed) would get them nearly kicked out of school or have their scholarship to university revoked - good!! it is insane! but I don't think it's unrealistic or anything
the show is set nearly 25 years ago but even today, women can get harassed when their nude pictures are leaked. people blame them for taking the pictures in the first place rather than concern themselves with how heinous it is to leak such pictures.
Isabella even calls out the sheriff on being more worried about a teenage girl having sex than about who leaked a sex tape of two minors
when the town thinks Luke cheated on Megan with Isabella, they blame Isabella. They harass her, call her names, try to get her kicked out of school and drive her out of town. meanwhile nothing happens to Luke, the guy who was actually seen on the tape and supposedly cheated on his girlfriend.
as for Megan being worried about her scholarship, that also makes sense to me because (as far as I've noticed) often people in need of financial aid are held to higher standards, as if they have to prove they're worthy of the assistance. I definitely think she's justified in worrying about losing her scholarship if they found out about the tape
I'm glad so many people here are confused as to why the tape is such a big deal because you guys are right, it *shouldn't* be a big deal. but there were and are still people who act the way the people in town in the show do, who blame and punish the victim of crimes like this.

2023.06.09 15:52 Backpackkid23 My 22F girlfriend 20F said she doesn't like how I coped when we were broken up for a week and was turned off by it
Me and my girlfriend have been in a rough patch of her going hot and cold with me. Days she wants to be with me then she just ups and leaves me. Sometimes that doesn't last longer than a day but this time she told me that she "energetically" released me and broke up with me for a week and some days and we were completely NC(None contact). While we were "broken up" I had fun. I went to hang out with my friends. We partied, smoked, and drank. Which I don't and didn't smoke or drink to the point of being completely High or even wasted I took a sic or two of a drink & I alwavs normall take two puffs of some marijuana because I am cautious and like to manage my high. Basically I had a fun, open, and nonrestrictive week which my girlfriend is not the party type. She doesn't smoke and doesn't drink and her views on that is quite different. We got back in contact and have been back in contact for a few days now. Yesterday I told her about the week I had and she waited a few hours then opened up and said she was turned off by how I coped during the week she left me. She said she had a ex who did that and that it triggered her and that she doesn't want to be with someone who does that. Honestly I had nothing to say as a response but I was highly offended? She then threatened to leave for another two weeks after saying how she felt . It's like one minute she love bombs me, wants me then she switch and turn to someone else I don’t understand it.

2023.06.09 15:52 eXeK_ks Windows 11 boot issue
Since I am temporarily moving out in a week, I wanted to install Honkai: Star Rail on my deck to at least do daily task when not near my main PC. I decided to install Windows 11 on my external SSD (Samsung T7 Touch) because I don't want to risk getting banned for using 3rd party launchers.
I downloaded Rufus and followed the guide I found on YouTube. Everything seemed fine but when I selected the Windows SSD from the boot list, it showed Steam Deck logo, told me to wait a little, and instead of beginning the Windows installation, it just booted to SteamOS like usual. I tried to format my SSD 3 times and each time it failed, I am confused since I followed the guide from beginning to end. Did Steam Deck had an update preventing booting from external drives? Is there a problem with SSD I am using? It does come with some software in order for fingerprint lock to work correctly but I'm not using it anyway.
Did anyone else encounter the issue?

2023.06.09 15:52 cant_be_pun_seen Gas Prices, and inflation, are very clearly greed induced.
Oil prices have been the same as they were in October 2018 for a few months now. Around $70/barrel.
National average in Oct 2018 was 2.90/gallon. National average today is 3.54/gallon.
Exxon, for instance, reported anywhere from 75% to 168% in year over year quarterly growth from June 2021 - September 2022. To be fair, this is after seeing negative YoY growth from March 2019 - December 2020. But, funny thing about the negative YoY growth that "big oil" experienced during COVID.. it wasnt caused solely by COVID. Exxon saw negative growth near 20% nearly a year before COVID brought down the world. In fact, the negative growth during COVID was very similar to the downturn from September 2014 - September 2016.
What I really want to emphasize here is the next part: I just laid out 2 separate downturns in Exxons history. Both were similar in length, and both were similar in size, albeit COVID being a little higher(5-10% higher during some quarters).
After the COVID downturn, Exxon reported quarterly YoY growth ranging from 75% to 168% over the course of about 6 quarters from 2021-2022. 4 out of those 6 quarters were 120% or higher.
After the 2014-2016 downturn, Exxon reported quarterly YoY growth ranging from 24% to 44% over 8 or 9 quarters from 2016-2018.
There is no precedent for the amount of greed we saw from corporations last year. Fuel prices were a driving force as well - and its very clear to me that greed was the driving force behind increased fuel prices after taking this small dive, confirming what we all should know already. So what we have here is compounded greed that ultimately made many things unaffordable over the past year - greed from the transportation side, greed from the producer greed from the supplier, and then of course regular YoY cost increases/inflation that should be expected. When you compound all of these increases into one final price that we all pay, you get record profits for everyone except the consumer, who gets fucked.
Id be willing to bet that YoY growth trends are similar for most corporations over the past 1-2 years, and do not match prior downturn years, just like with oil corporations.
And all they had to do was say "sorry, gas prices are high and COVID caused so many supply chain issues!!!" Yeah, you're not increasing production back to pre pandemic levels because you can just jack your prices up 200% and make record profits while not having to hire more employees.
America is fucked unless we do something about corporate greed. Greed is to be expected from the individual, but we cannot have monopolies run around completely unchecked.
If I left out something here, please point it out, thanks! https://www.macrotrends.net/stocks/charts/XOM/exxon/gross-profit

Get the course here: [Genkicourses.site] [Get] RY Schwartz – Coaching The Conversion CTC Circle (10/2022) - Full Course Download
What You Get:
CTC Launches (to master your launch and funnel sequences)
10X Launches is the first copywriting program fully engineered to speed up the execution and amplify your results of your emails no matter what kind of funnel or launch strategy you’re rolling out.
It’s built not only for best-in-class launch copywriters…
But for coaches, consultants, course creators, and ANYONE who stands to benefit from nailing down their launch and funnel copy faster and with more genuine impact.
IN THIS TOP-SELLING PROGRAM, YOU’LL GET ACCESS TO:
2 “Core” Modules
That will initiate you into the “Coaching The Conversion™ method, and how to leverage a new, more empowering definition of “direct response” that opens up the floodgates to greater intimacy, empathy, and conversions.
5 “Launch” Modules
breaking down every single phase of your launch or funnel in full detail (including some you didn’t even know existed). You’ll learn exactly what’s at play during the Segmentation & Confirmation, Pre-Launch, Launch, Sales and Closing phases of your funnel and how to quickly craft the messaging that coaches your prospect into the final conversion in a powerful, non-sleazy way.
25+ Email Templates
None of that BS “plug’n’play” or “swipe and deploy” stuff that shoehorns your message into lifeless boxes that robs it of all life and power.
Instead, you’ll get FULL breakdowns and walkthroughs of the go-to templates I turn to over-and-over again in 6 and 7-figure launch campaigns. Meaning, you get to craft your OWN high-converting launch emails in about 25 minutes flat and fire them into ConvertKit, ActiveCampaign (or wtv you’re using) while your coffee’s still hot.
CTC Sales Pages (to master your long form sales page)
This is it.
It’s where the best paid copywriters, coaches and course marketers on the planet earn their keep.
It’s where the conversion either happens or it doesn’t. In cold hard numbers that don’t care how many Clif bars you stress-ate in the process.
It’s where the most admired online business owners transform interest, desire, and engagement and into what you actually want: Sales.
So what is “it”? It’s your long-form sales page.
And the truth is… most copywriters and marketers avoid long-form sales pages like the plague… treating it like a close-talking lepper with coffee breath… instead of the 24/7 salesperson your sales page – that final step in your marketing funnel – should be.
So why do marketers (and even pro-level copywriters) avoid sales pages?
Because writing a long-form sales page is intimidating AF.
It’s the Night King of the Whitewalker army.
It’s the Beef Wellington on Hell’s Kitchen.
It’s the Lord Voldemort of your marketing funnel – aka the funnel asset that shall not be named.
A long-form sales page is where you’ll spend dozens of hours writing THOUSANDS of words that will either confirm your claim as a top player in your space…
Or will tell you with Gordon-Ramsay-esque candor that your marketing wasn’t as good as your business coach told you it was.
There’s real pressure in that.
But there’s even real-er payoff in being able to do it faster – and more profitably – than anyone else in your industry. A payoff that even affords you the right to make up words like real-er Confronting, yep? Conquerable. Absolutely.
In CTC Sales Pages, you’ll go through the exact process I’ve used to write over twenty 6 and 7-figure sales pages for the likes of Amy Porterfield, Copyhackers, and many more.
Program #3 & #4
Six Figure Emails & Seven Figure Emails (for even more email conversion badassery) Welcome to the “Johnnie Walker Blue” of our email template series.
This is the premium blend for more advanced marketing palates.
All pulled straight from my highest-performing launches for industry titans like Amy Porterfield, Todd Herman, Traffic & Funnels, and Copyhackers.
What you’re getting are 13 advanced email templates
that you can use in a pinch when you need to write a standalone sales email, a webinar invitation, a post-webinar replay, downsell, or flash sale.
To be clear, these aren’t those sketchy and lifeless “swipe and deploy” templates you may have seen swimming around the shadier parts of the online marketing cesspool.
These are loose, flexible templates that guide you through deep-dive masterclasses teaching you the advanced psychology behind each one.
Meaning, you actually understand WHY they work, and are fully empowered to engineer them to best serve your audience.
Minimum Viable Launch 2.0 (to quickly rock profitable and lean email launches)
We’ve taken the single most impactful part of 10x Launches; the part that countless students have credited with producing game-changing ROI in record time…
And given it a fresh-for-2022 facelift.
Not only will you be getting access to a stack of NEW templates that we’ve added to the stack based on repeated tests and real-world results.
But we’ll be offering you the one-click automation uploads to bring the whole sequence straight into your ActiveCampaign to save you and your team about 5+ hours of heavy-duty integration time.
Application Funnel Amplifiers (for creating powerful pre-call enrollment experiences)
Fact: The enrollment experience begins the moment your prospect books a call.
If you mail it in for those 12-72 hours between when they book the call — and show up to it, you’re missing a golden opportunity to begin coaching the necessary transformations.
In this brand new program, you’ll learn how we to consciously engineering your entire application experience to pre-empt objections, create magnetism, and stack the odds in favor of having a successful enrollment conversation You’ll get practical answers to:
- When you should be transparent about your pricing BEFORE a sales call
- How to strategically structure your application questions in a way that actually coaches your pre-customer into your program (yes, the questions are copy)
- What to put on your booking confirmation page to create incredible momentum and a “point of no return” into your program

2023.06.09 15:52 Unhappy_Presence7374 I (26F) feeling there's something off with my partner (26M)
I'm currently pregnant (7mos) and last month (May) I noticed that he's kinda cold towards me. I mean we barely had s*x since last month (Maybe just 2-4x up until now)
I don't know what's the real reason is, maybe he's just too tired and busy in his work? Having some mental health issues? Or maybe because I didn't rake a bath regularly these past few weeks? He's just scared that there might happen to the baby if we had s*x? Maybe because there are times I was toxic and keeps on nagging him? Or maybe he's cheating on me?
But i just feel there's something wrong. I still don't have proof of him having an affair. Maybe I'm just paranoid or overthinking. How can i approach him about this, last time i opened this topic to him and i didn't receive serious answer. Thank you in advance
