2023.05.28 13:52 RougeBlender Subscription based game

So here is the thing, I think Bungie leans heavily on the fact that they claim their game is free to play to try and draw in new players. But allow me to pose this question to current players.
If you never again had to buy the season pass, could get access to older content, and didn't have to buy dungeon keys anymore, would you pay monthly subscription fee to play destiny 2?
Now I know this idea may not appeal to some based purely on the fact that you would be paying a monthly fee, however I'd like to bring up some key points.
You already pay these prices to access just the current content - $12.50 - $20 per season (depending on if you buy the annual pass, season bundle, or the silver) - $50 per expansion - $20 for a dungeon key
That totals to $82.50 - $90 by the end of the year to access content most of which isn't playable after a three month period. That's $6.87 - $7.50 per month. For comparison, Final fantasy XIV charges $12.99/month for easily 100x the content and shoot you can play through the whole base game and first expansion without paying a dime to see if you like it. Even removing the expansions you would still be looking at only a max of $3.33 per month to cover the same costs. But we pay that to access Temporary content, that if you don't get, you miss parts of the story, like the death of Holiday who was killed off during season pass content.
Personally I'd be willing to pay $5-$7/month on a subscription IF, - Bungie let us go through old content including old seasons and DLCs (including the old stuff from when Activision called the shots). - Didn't charge us to access the dungeons. - Invested some of that money to improving the servers and hiring a database engineer. - Got rid of paid season rewards - And finally put some actual effort into making a good story for the expansions, lightfall was a dumpster fire story wise.
If you have made it this far I appreciate you taking the time to hear out my points, but I am genuinely curious to know if the system I proposed would appeal to you more than the way things are currently set up. Please let me know and tell me if there is anything else you would expect out of Bungie if they were to switch to a subscription based system.
Extra note, I am aware of the legal set backs to bungie giving us access to content from forsaken backwards, but I'm still a little salty that before I moved I bought forsaken, didn't have steady internet for eight months while I tried to get a foothold, and then didn't have access to content I paid for when I finally settled in so it's hard to feel for Bungie on that one.

2023.05.28 13:52 LoveHasDied How can I actually start this cheap af motorized bicycle I built?

How can I actually start this cheap af motorized bicycle I built?
Found a Walmart sale on a Kent Beach Cruiser for $69.99, picked that up, a bunch of cheap signals, reflectors, and bells and whistles from Amazon under $50, and the engine kit itself cost me $75 vs $120 due to outer box damage and me not caring, was packed in foam and untouched. It's fully assembled, I just cannot get it to initiate its first combustion, it's not the fuel, I'm using Shell V Power Nitro, supposedly the best gas aside from 100LL AVGAS, and the recommended break-in 9:1 ratio of 2 cycle oil, aka 10% oil. I can't get the damn thing to start, don't have the energy to keep trying, been at it since 4am and I'm beat, no treadmill to spin the wheel either, just me and trial and error, I do however have a second carb to try out. What are your suggestions? For the price it's an absolutely gorgeous bike, if it would run. Thanks

2023.05.28 13:52 Visual-Apartment-236 How can I (26F) my boyfriend (27M) who just lost his mum

I need help.
My boyfriend's mother passed away last night and I don't know how to talk to him or comfort him. I'm not good with words and I don't want to copy paste google condolences.
I'm really sad and I just want to be there for him but I don't know how to do it. I cannot be with him physically as he along with his family left for their paternal home after last rites.
He, just like most Indian men isn't very expressive of his feelings but he's very emotional and had a very strong bond with his mother. I just want to be there for him, give him a hand to hold, a shoulder to cry on like he does for me always but I can't do it physically and I'm absolutely pathetic with words.
Please someone help me, anyone who has any experience how to handle the situation.

2023.05.28 13:51 stonedmutt This group still active?

I have been struggling with this disease for 18 years, diagnosed at 2 and still feel the effects very bad today at 20.
I can’t believe a group with people with the same issue exist!! I’ve never had anyone to understood how bad it can get, in years since my father with the condition (thanks for the GREAT genes) passed. His never went away either, got worse till the end at 32.
Quick question, everyone and doctors tell me to do physio therapy, but when I did at 14 to help, he use to force my bad hip OUT and my specialist always told me not to force that hip in that direction if it hurt too much, it physically won’t by itself but he forced it. I refuse to go back because of that and after two years of working I’m already feeling it.
I’m so scared for the future, I’m only 20 and in so much pain almost daily between my bad hip, and my knee n lower back are messed up because of said hip. Has anyone else did physio and had this issue? Them doing normal hamstring exercises on your hip instead of listening to you saying your specialist said not to do that ++ it RLLY HURTS. Like, my hip goes numb when it happened.
Once again I’m MIND BLOWN there’s a group of this with people who also struggle with it.

2023.05.28 13:51 EdutzuMielutzu Ranked matchmaking is awful

Hi! I came back to this game after a few months. I like to play ranked. I was diamond in multiple season, but this one, after my first match of the season I got placed in silver 5. Why? Now I really struggle to climb to gold. My teammates are always disconnecting from the match being put in yhe situation to play 3v5 or even 2v5. They dont communicate; they like to push even on GR side, they dont plant because they hunt kills; they have no crosshair placement, they are blind or deafen or even both, they only press W+Mouse1. I dont know what to do to advance in rank. I can't seem to find any player who is at least decent. My theory is that I get placed in the team with NPCs. I'm 100% convinced that I have bots in my team or my teammates are just stupid guineea pigs with internet connection. The system doesnt reward you if u have good stats. Currently I have 10 matches with 20% win rate and 2.09 kd ratio. I'm very dissapointed. Is this player base that stupid?

2023.05.28 13:51 Senior-Watch4294 Getting rid of “permanent hickey”?

So I was playing spikeball on the beach, dove for a ball and scraped the side of my neck. It got sunburnt as it was healing and now it seems like it’s heat to stay. About the size of a quarter, right side of my neck, slightly darker than surrounding skin, looks EXACTLY like a hickey. Any treatment I could do to get rid of it?

With all the uncertainty surround the debt ceiling and being announced over the weekend a deal has been made. If passed would this mean a huge swing of volatility in either direction?
Having said this. Does this Mean Vix options will be volatile and have price swings? Would this be a play to make?

2023.05.28 13:50 VanaVisera [s1 spoilers] A Certain Voice Actor Teases his Return in Season 2?

The moderation bot won’t let me put a season two spoiler tag in the title. So potential season two spoilers everybody.
On Jason Spisak’s YouTube channel he has an AMA video. In the beginning of the video, he asked his fans to not ask him about season two of arcane because he “knows what’s happening in season two.” And if that wasn’t damning enough…take a look at the comments on the video. He hearted someone saying that Silco must obviously be in season 2 If Jason can’t talk about it. He’s winking at the fans here even though he can’t say anything about it.
This isn’t 100% direct confirmation, but it’s really about as close as It can get; as Jason signed a non-disclosure agreement in regards to season two of Arcane and can’t legally, directly talk about it. Which is standard for actors.
But it’s also obvious that Silco has room to come back even though he died because he will more than likely be seen in flashbacks to Jinx’s childhood as well as a voice in her head. Which is such a cool concept.
I’m excited to see Silco make a return. And I’m interested as to how different he’ll be compared to what they did with him in the first season.

2023.05.28 13:50 Cool_ball999 Awaken 19/ a prey's pride

[First]() [Prev]()
This took an unbearable amount of time, sorry, I was busy with tests and you know… school stuff, it's not looking good for my writing, I pretty much only have free time with my phone for only 2 hours a day except for weekends. As a compensation for the ridiculous amount of time this chapter took, it's going to be extra long, and have action parts again (kind of) and some gore, enjoy!
"What was it again?"
"Schen- i mean Schon"
"Right, what got you here, near the edge and all? It's a nice edge, but still an edge"
"Desperate for work I guess, I assume you're the same?"
Schon… no, Schen… answered as he took a sip out of his drink, it isn't as bad as he thought it would be, it's sweet, and at least it isn't recycled water.
"Kind of, I just work here because… well… my skill set isn't impressive"
"A loader, no? All that work in the cargo bay?"
"Yeah, what does it feel like being an SC?"
"Being a security captain feels…"
Schen took a glance at his tag, hidden beneath his shirt and new uniform, a piece of memory and evidence of who he once was.
"Oh yeah… aren't you an ex-mil?"
"I am"
"Why did you quit?"
"It's… it got a bit too mu it can ch for me, though i do miss my team, best few people i've ever worked with"
"Good terms?"
"Brothers, live by them, die by them, not literal on the latter of course, but it can happen, too bad we're disbanded now"
"Let's just say they don't wanna work without their favorite captain"
"Oh… Where are they now?"
"Living their best life with their family i hope, least there's nothing to threaten their lives there"
"Why don't you go back to yours?"
"Don't have one, too old to return back home and do nothing, and too old to find a mate, kinda missed my chance back then"
"And you're satisfied with just being an SC in a random cargo ship that visits edge territories?"
"It's still something, besides, i've got more than enough experience for it… hmm… lunch's over, good talk"
"Looks like it is, nice to know you… Schon?"
He nodded in confirmation, and went to pay for his lunch. It was decent, but he'd rather have it stale than having to actually pay, he can't believe he actually missed those stale rations. Perhaps because he was used to it, old habits and preferences are hard to shake off, they said. He went back to his post, just a little room filled with camera monitors with a teeny tiny armory next to it. Genuinely, it looked pathetic next to the military armory he was used to.
But the weapons were familiar, kind of, just lacking the usual stopping power and attachments of the ones he used to have. After the (unfortunate) disbanding of his team and his (honorable) discharge from the military as well as the new (rather stupid if you ask him) identity of Schon, he was desperate for work. It's his fault really, he should've been at home enjoying the rest of his life now that that Schen technically no longer exists.
But the soldier in him wanted to do something, so he did, and now here he is, a simple SC in a cargo ship, which took an unnecessary amount of effort, as apparently the union was still somewhat skittish about the video he broadcasted before he went on the temporary desertion, but now that he knows everything, it doesn't really matter. It isn't bad by any means, but it ain't the military, and the more he worked the more he wished for a pirate attack. He also just missed being together with his team, but alas, they have their own lives, so he had to let them go, though he does have their contact number saved on his personal datapad.
He turned on the only monitor inside his room that isn't used to look through a camera, and looked for anything interesting in the network. Interesting as in any news regarding the 'Goels' and their recent introduction, he had been keeping a close eye on it. He doesn't need to, it isn't his business anymore and if he tried to make it his business again he can expect agents on his tail, but since he was heavily involved anyway, he thought why not as well do it. And it was just fine so far, though he has no clue how the green one, Abel if his memory serves him, turned from a drone to… well… that.
He learned a bit about who humans are, and what humanity was like, before it went away and was 'replaced' by the Goels. And as far as he knows they're dead, like extinct dead, so obviously the appearance of the cheery human male that acted as the Goel ambassador shocked him. He still has no clue now, though his theory as to how essentially boils down to 'ancient civilization fuckery'. And as far as he can tell, there's no problem with that, yet, the discussions were relatively smooth if the news were to be trusted and the council seems to actually starting to trust the Goels, kind of.
He browsed through the tabs and websites, most of which he already read and glossed over.
Trade offer accepted between union and Goels
No surprise there, no man or woman in the council wanted to pass up such a deal.
Military showcase ends in awe, fear, and admirance
He saw the videos on that one, it was impressive.
Goel ambassador visits Caevit palace garden, Godfather was shook
He suppose having such an important guest roaming around your garden can be a bit complicated, so he understands.
Goel ambassador faints during a direct discussion with the council, paramedics clueless
Now that's interesting, and frankly worrying, he didn't get to see the full broadcast yesterday, actually he missed most of it, so he didn't get to see what happened.
"What happened to you?"
He mumbled as he read the article and looked at the pictures and videos of the accident. Unknown cause, immediately escorted, and the sudden silence from the Goels, and it has been for almost half a cycle now. Strange, he looked through the video again, watched how Abel behaved, and noted the many oddities present. He seemed just fine, just giving his presentation to the council as professional as one can be as an ambassador and then suddenly he just… dropped, he thought about exhaustion at first, but the longer he thinks about it the dumber it gets.
No way the current Abel is human, he was explicitly told by him that there are no humans left, so what is it?. He couldn't come up with anything, but kept it in mind as he looked for more info on the current situation. It wasn't long until he realized there's nothing else he can learn and turned off the computer. He looked at the time, and suddenly remembered something vital, alcohol break, he reached down under his desk and took out a bottle, the very same one that he took to the desert planet with him.
No shot glass no problem, he popped the cap off and drink straight from the bottle, not very classy but whatever. He hid it back under the desk and walked out of his office now that he actually remember something actually vital, his men. The security team more precisely, and he's the current captain, someone's had to check on them. He ran into one guard waiting around the cafeteria and greeted them.
"All good?"
"All good, no danger"
"Yet, keep an eye out, and if you can, help anyone in need, being a security isn't just about holding weapons and warding off pirates, you should know that by now"
"Yes sir, sorry"
"Sigh i've worked with trainees that are better than this"
He grumbled as he left to look for another man to inspect. His new subordinates are… a particular group. Some of them take the job seriously, some are a bit more relaxed but still vigilant, but most, like the one he just gave a mouthful to is God awful, improper stance, manners, no incentives, and utterly basic in weapon mastery. He has to cut them some slack, they're just basic security after all, not soldiers, but still. He ran into a more favorable one patrolling the hallway leading to the reactor, he actually knows this one's name, Koern, a Civean, and he couldn't be more glad he actually got a salute from him.
"Greetings, Captain Schon, is there any problem?"
"It's Sche- i mean… yes thank you, and no, there's no problem, just daily inspection"
"I see, how do I do?"
"As usual, very good, keep It up"
"Thank you sir… sir can i ask you something? I've been considering looking for you but now you're here…"
"Sure, i can spare some time"
"Can I request a leave from you sir?"
"I can if there are valid reasons"
"I've requested it to the captain, but all she said is that i should ask you first"
"I see, but what's the reason?"
"Family matter, I have a relative on a planet named Rosan IV, ever heard of it?"
"Isn't that the newly built colony planet?"
"It is, a much better built colony compared to the rest, new union projects and all that stuff, my cousin signed up for it, we've been communicating just fine so far, until a few days ago"
"What happened?"
"I don't know, he just went… silent, i thought okay, maybe he's busy or there's a problem with the communication there, so i just waited, but it has been too long now, usually he sends a message almost daily, now there's nothing"
"I don't think you need to ask for a leave in that case"
"Rosan IV is in the list of destination of this ship, station building material shipping, after this one we should be on the way there"
"Oh thank God, i knew i should've checked the list"
"Well… this is an edge operating ship, you know? In that case, all you'll need is a shore leave on any station there, short but should be enough for you to check in on your cousin"
"That's all i need sir, thank you"
"Of course, now continue your work, we'll be there before you know it"
"Yes sir"
Schen walked away with a little curiosity in his mind, Rosan IV huh? isn't that the planet that's been really silent? He remembered a conversation at the cafeteria, a few people were talking about it. Some talk about how stupid of a project it was, how it was no different than any other colony, a 'gold plated' lie if you will. But most were talking about how it became a 'ghost' of sorts, communications fell, ships that come and go there go missing, a few creepy tales here and there, it was almost a horror story.
He doubted it, such an ambitious project is bound to have some issues, there's a huge price for luxury, and that price is probably hitting right now. Which made him worried a little, a new colony is a gold mine for pirates and raiders, that was probably the price, pirate intervention. But if all goes well, it shouldn't be that bad, no way those ridiculous stories are real…. Maybe.
Rana sat down on his padded seat, in his room, in his literal castle, thinking, not about anything in particular, but just thinking. And maybe glossing over his new arm again, to be in awe again, he still doesn't know how the movement is that smooth. Pearl white, shaped just like his other arm, even has the claws, and probably smoother in terms of movements than his actual arm despite being a prosthetic. It has been quite a while since his particular experience on that planet, and the prosthetic is still not showing any issue, any normal prosthetic would break down or need maintenance after this long of a time.
It's also… self repairing? He's not sure if he's hallucinating, but he's pretty sure the arm rebuilt itself after he accidentally bumped it into something hard. A small piece of the outer casing fell off, he didn't pay much attention to it, until it disappeared minutes after when he tried to look at it to see how bad it was. All in all, a new experience, awe inducing and a bit scary, would be really nice too, if it wasn't for-
"AAH! Oh… dad…"
-That, his father.
"It's time to-"
"Look at my arm and pry it open, i know"
"Good, let's-"
"But why?"
"Sigh Rana, we had this conversation before, you know the reasons"
"Well I don't want to care about it!"
"It's for our people…"
"No, it's for yourself! Come on dad! Don't you hear what they said? What did they offer? They gave us everything!"
"No one in this universe, organic or not, is stupid enough to give away vital information and material to someone else they just met, they must be hiding something"
"So they're lying, is that it?"
"Yes, i… we believe so"
"Okay, give me a reason why they're lying"
"That's what a dumb leader would do"
"Oh please, don't act like dad's not just another servant to the matriarch"
"She's your grandma"
"Doesn't change anything dad, and no, i don't like laying on a bed while people i don't know try to pry open my arm"
"Sigh does that mean you don't-"
"Fine… as you wish… but i hope you can understand"
"I already understand, and i don't like it"
Rana heard his room's door opening and then closing behind him, and sighed. Life hasn't been the same since he returned, his father has been a lot more serious, he can understand that, it makes sense. But he had been putting him into these weird 'inspections' ; they weren't inspections, they were straight up experiments, to try and pry open his new arm. That was how he discovered the last strange and fascinating thing about it, it can feel pain.
He remembered how everyone in the room froze when he screamed in pain, they were bewildered. It was only when he kicked the person inserting some sort of needle-like thing into the gaps of his prosthetic in the face that they knew what was happening. And yet, knowing what it does, his father still insists they do more of his experiments. It doesn't seem to matter how many anesthetics, painkillers and other treatments have been done, he can still feel the pain, it pops up from time to time, sometimes waking him from his sleep.
It was not something he wants to go through again, even if he's unconscious during the operation. At Least it isn't everyday he gets 'inspected' thanks to someone who dislikes the idea as much as he did. Rana heard his door open again, and smiled knowing who it was.
"Rana? Honey? There you are…"
"Hey mom…"
"Have you eaten yet?"
"Mom, a servant came here an hour ago, bringing the food, of course i did"
"Good, something to help you recover"
"Mom, I'm good, okay?"
She gave him a pat and a scratch on the head, his favorite guilty pleasure. He always feels like he's still a child everytime she does it, and not a grown man, but it would be a total lie to say he doesn't like it.
"You need energy to recover from that"
She tapped his prosthetic.
"It's not like it's gonna grow back…"
"One can hope, it's terrible what happened to you"
"Well, it's okay now, they redeemed themselves"
"Hmph… no one's hurting my boy, no one, not even a sentient AI from a different era of the universe"
"Thanks mom… But i don't think you're fit enough to fight Cain"
"I'll beat him with my motherly aura, the thing he's missing, anyway, how's your arm, darling?"
"It's fine… still hurts sometimes"
"Sigh if only your father would listen, him and his ridiculous experiments, what's in that arm anyway?"
"Technology used by a race that defied time…"
"Doesn't justify him doing those things to you… he's been here, doesn't he?"
"He just left"
"Hmm…. You two had a talk?"
"He's just here to… you know what he does"
"Well glad to know he doesn't get through with it today, alright sweetie, just here to check up on you"
"Mom, i'm not a boy anymore"
"A boy you are not, you are a grown man, but my boy you are, and always will be, see you tomorrow honey"
"Stay safe"
Well that doesn't last long, Rana thought as his mother left the room, that's one of the issues they had since forever, she is always very busy. Because unlike father she's not the type to just sit behind a desk and give out orders, she's a lot more active, and caring at that. His father is the supreme general, sure, but Rana always looked up to her more, and her job as the health minister. She's always on a trip to visit hospitals all around the union and other things he doesn't know much about. And of course, unlike his father, that means she's not always home, shame.
Rana thought about it, and suddenly remembered his interaction with Lnaia that night when he first woke up to discover his arm missing. He never told it to her, but the reason she felt familiar is that both her and his mother have the same job, making sure of people's wellbeing. He thought maybe she would know, but maybe not everyone knows that the current Qrid health minister is married to the supreme general, it isn't exactly a super popular thing.
Sometimes Rana gets reminded of who his parents were everytime he looks at any news regarding the Goels, about Cain and Abel. Just how unironically similiar they are, to be so far apart in mindset and goals and yet so close to each other through love… well… atleast Cain and Abel did, he's not so sure about his parents, not anymore.
Faen sat in his office, stressed out of his mind, everything has been a mess, Abel's incident at the councillor station, the countless interviews asking for his opinion, it was, somehow, getting a bit too much. Faen expected everything, but Abel passing out in the middle of a speech for no reason is not one of them, and for the Goels to go completely silent after, just what in the world is happening?. He doesn't like it, he doesn't like being out of control, out of the know, not knowing anything makes him uncomfortable, knowing that it can decide the fate of his kind made it near unbearable.
He founds himself scratching his own desk with his claws from all the stress, he stopped, and sighed as he brushed off the wood chips. Maybe he should he take his medications again, he opened a drawer on his desk and took out a small plastic container with labels on it, a medication for high blood pressure, he took one pill and set it back inside the drawer.
"Still on your meds, love?"
A voice came out of nowhere, it trigerred his instinct to reach for the concealed handgun next to him, but as he aimed towards whoever's in front of him, he realized it was a mistake.
"Still as nimble as i remember, though you got a bit stiff on the arms there"
"I thought you already left…"
"Come on Faen, both you and i know i wouldn't leave without at least saying goodbye to you"
"Is that all you're here for?"
He said as he put the gun away, coming back to a more calm demeanor.
"Of course not, i'm here to check up on our son, and talk to you"
He raised his eyebrow a bit at that.
"Not as rare as you making a call to me, we need to talk Faen"
"Sometimes i wonder if you take all the medicine i prescribed for you…of course about our son!"
"Sigh is this about-"
"Yes! What makes you think it's a good idea to probe our son like he's some sort of foreign creature?"
"I've taken every precaution, he's been given anesthetics and-"
"Oh i don't care, it's not about how bad of a pain he's experiencing, or how subdued it is so it's not dangerous, this is about him experiencing it in the first place! that's not supposed to happen!"
"Yana, please, we have the best doctors working on him"
"Well I don't believe you…"
"Because I'm the health minister and I need to see their license, and if I don't… i see them as unqualified as to even hold a needle, but i'm here not to hear you say what or… how you do this, we've been there, it doesn't matter… he's still our son and i disagree, what i want to know is why"
Faen massaged his forehead out of annoyance.
"You're scared…. I know"
"You're scared of the Goels, of their ways"
"Anyone would"
"I know… and you're trying to do something about it…"
She sat down on the chair right in front of his desk, it was preserved for only other generals and the matriarch herself, incase of a private meeting, her sitting there is technically illegal.
"....But does that change anything? Change the fact that they offer help?"
"You can't trust anyone just like that, they're hiding something"
"And you can't just distrust them for the same reason, it goes both ways, even if they are, is that really a reason for you to dissect our son?"
"It's just his arm"
"So what? You're trying to take it off and leave him armless?"
"It's not the only prosthetic in the world"
"And yet the finest! You have to admit it, they are superior in many ways, they are thousands of years ahead of us, I have never seen such a sophisticated prosthetic before, you know me, this is my field, and that thing on him makes our best prosthetic look ancient!"
"But then what am I supposed to do? Do nothing? Sit there as those things do whatever they want to us? to the union?"
"No! you work with them… i heard what you two were fighting about, i was outside, about why the Goels have no reason to lie, and i agree with him"
"Then what?"
"Here's the thing Faen, there's a difference between being exploited, and working together… they're looking forward to working with you, giving the union their technology and helping it improve… you on the other hand… want to exploit them, learn what they can do and how they did it and then see if you can do it for yourself, i get the point, but why would you steal something that is given out for free?"
"Do I really have to say this again? It's because-"
"Pride… It's because of pride… looks like the old sentiment that caused the great war all those years ago are still here… shame, i thought we would be better as a species, turns out we never change, what a disappointment"
She uttered those last words with bitterness and a flat face, and left the room without another word, she didn't look back, or say goodbye as she is probably leaving, as if she doesn't care anymore. Faen was half stunned, half angry at what she said, that was just her assumption, he reasoned to himself. But now he can't stop thinking about it, as much as he tries to deny it, is that really him? Is that what she thinks of him? A disappointment?

2023.05.28 13:50 SecurityUnusual8099 Childhood dog of 14 years is gone

I already edited my old post to say that he'd passed but I felt like I needed to make a separate post for myself.
He went to sleep at around 12:50 am today at a vet clinic I always go past to get to the city, it was sudden and I wasn't prepared but I don't think I ever would've been prepared. I didn't say goodnight to him before going to bed but then again I never used to, but I felt like I should have because I knew he was going soon. My mother woke me up suddenly a couple of hours after I went to sleep in hysterics crying, telling me that my dog would have to go to sleep that night. What's usually a half an hour's drive took less than that because of how late it was, and how fast my mother was driving, my dad sat in the back with our dog who was whimpering the entire time. I hated that I could hear it but I couldn't bring myself to have both of my earphones in.
We got to the vet too quickly and went in, and she confirmed that it was best to have him put to sleep. She told us he had some sort of lesion or bleed on the brain, and that he didn't know one side of himself existed, which is why he was walking in circles. It also explained why he'd suddenly gone blind and deaf. I got to cuddle him before he went to sleep, but not for very long, and I hardly noticed when he had gone to sleep, my mother was holding him and I couldn't see around her. I didn't get to see his eyes close and I don't know if that's a good thing or not. I was touching his back when he went to sleep, that was the only part I could reach. I got to give him hugs and kisses after he was gone, but it felt wrong that he was so still and wasn't giving me a side eye or trying to wriggle away. I could hardly stand after it, my dad had to hold me up and I was seconds away from having some sort of panic attack, I could hardly breathe. I got to keep a bit of his fur that the vet cut off for me, but it isn't enough, I just want my dog back.
I can't stop crying, my eyes are sore and I have a headache, and I've had to call off work because I can't even distract myself properly. I'm trying to stay positive and be happy, saying that I'm just glad he was with us, and I've been putting up pictures of him on instagram but it isn't enough. I want him back with me, I don't care if I don't see him for half the day, just knowing he isn't downstairs and is being turned to ash somewhere hurts so fucking bad. I wanted to have some of his ashes but my parents refused because it's too expensive and morbid. I don't fucking care if it's morbid, I wanted more than his hair but I'm being forced to accept that it's not healthy or whatever the fuck. I literally don't care, I wanted his ashes, I would've paid for it myself if I could but by now it's probably too late anyway. Just because my mother spent more time with him doesn't mean she should get the whole goddamn overall decision, he was my dog too. I picked him out as a puppy, I named him, I walked him, and he was my brother and best friend. I sound angry but I really don't have the energy, I'm just so exhausted with life right now, I don't want to deal with this bullshit anymore.
So... Yeah, my dog is gone and I just want the pain to be over. I'm happy that he's in a better place, but I wish that better place wasn't so far away.
(repost because I'm stupid)

2023.05.28 13:49 Redditdjc1987 Frustrated Greeter. LAT v Corrections

TL DR: Frustrated greeter. 1yr GSD. We have seen some succes with engage / disengage game but are now plateauing. Should I switch to correcting frustrated behaviour at closer distances?
Hi all. Long time lurker across thousands of reddit threads which have proved invaluable to help me triangulate how to raise my dog! So a genuine thank you all for all of your contributions.
We have a 12 month GSD who became reactive to other dogs at around 6 months. He is a frustrated greeter and is desperate to meet. This manifests as fixating, barking, growling.
We moved him into a prong when he was becoming unmanageable (9months) and regret not doing this sooner. It was a game changer. We unfortunately had him on a harness before as recommended by an earlier trainer and we accept this has likely either exacerbated or created this problem.
We have been training LAT and engage/disengage tirelessly since he became reactive. Moving to super high value treats has seen us close the distance to around a road width. At this distance he can now disengage (perhaps after staring for 5 seconds or so). But now, closing the distance further is becoming very marginal gains.
We discussed with our breeder and another balanced trainer and the following recommendations were made:
Trainer - no nonsense. Strong prong correction as soon as he begins to fixate. Short leash to maintain control.
Breeder - use the end of the leash to tap him on the head as soon as he begins to fixate or bark to break his focus.
So my questions are
1) with engage / disengage, can you ever truly close the distance to the point of being able to pass a dog on the same pavement/sidewalk without a reaction? I.e. is it worth us continuing to try and close the distance further?
2) if we begin correcting frustrated behaviour, would we undo the good work we have done with building a positive CER around other dogs using engage / disengage?
3) Is it worthwhile to continue with engage / disengage at a distance but then employ corrections when he plays up at lesser distances (i.e. over threshold). Can both methods coexist?
Thank you again.

2023.05.28 13:49 NotMichaelCera Beard glitch in Palace of Ice?

I made my Human character clean shaven, but after one of the long rests, he had a full beard out of nowhere. Personally I think it’s funny (and I imagine that time has just passed and he hasn’t shaved) but has anyone experienced weird glitches like that to their characters as they progress through Palace of Ice?

2023.05.28 13:49 Low_Tell1587 Any info on Prinz 601 Super 8?

Any info on Prinz 601 Super 8?
I recently bought a super 8 camera as I was given a roll of film from someone who passed away and wanted to put it to use.
My first mistake I think was not checking for info online before purchasing as I now have a camera which I'm not entirely certain works.
The motor runs fine when shutter is pressed. It came with a roll inside that I thought I would as a test roll to see if there were any problems but the meter has run and the shutter still seems to shoot which I've is not usual.
Also when I got the camera, my second bit mistake was raking out the light meter battery - I thought it was for the motor. Inside was probably the original mercury battery it came with but the paper had badly disintegrated and once the cap was off it wouldn't go back in so I had to take it out. I found online that they dont sell those batteries anymore and was unable to find anything to be a suitable replacement. SO my genius solution was to simply wrap the naked original battery in some paper and chuck it back in. How could I tell if it still works, if thats even a possibility? Through the view finder, the light measure is scale at the bottom but I can't see any needle like others had said.
Anyway I'll include some pics and if anyone knows literally anything about this camera itd be a great help. I'm heading towards a proper film place tomorrow thats a couple hours away so maybe they'll help but I've yet to find anyone so far.

2023.05.28 13:48 JaimeSalvaje Unifi to Delta

My wife was just hired on through Unifi to be a cabin cleaner. She mostly took this job for the flight benefits and to work part time while she works on her mental issues. Well, after some research it looks like the flight benefits suck in comparison to when she was working with American Airlines as a contractor. Of course having some flight benefits is better than not having any, for the moment at least. In the future she wants to work for Delta directly and maybe even move to a city that has a Delta hub. Anyone know how she would go about working for Delta as a full time employee in the future?
