2023.06.06 04:57 eGGn0Gd0G Some data & perspective from my first climb to Infinite

Some data & perspective from my first climb to Infinite
Hey fellow snappers! With the season reset upon us, just thought I'd share my rank progress graph (data from MarvelSnap.pro) on my first ever climb to Infinite this season (CL ~3100, started playing mid-Jan). Hope someone finds it at least mildly insightful and/or encouraging as they work on the climb this next season :)
Starting from 50 (reset from mid-80s, which was previous career high), it took me 1500 games to climb to Infinite, with ~HALF of those games played between when I first reached 90s till when I finally got to Infinite -- aka there was a STEEP learning curve (literally, as you can see in the graph) as I tumbled down to high 80s and had to claw my way back over more than a week. Cheesy point being: YOU CAN DO IT!! Don't be discouraged -- soldier through it, learn the ins & outs of the meta and how to pilot a couple of your decks really well, so that you can manage cubes to climb. I know it's been said a ton, but this game really is like poker so you just need to bet/retreat efficiently. For better or worse, it is what it is with the current snapping mechanic. I'll post my deck lists and stats in the comments.
More context--
I was high on my previous career high finish of 86 and was looking forward to climbing in May. However, I felt I immediately hit a wall the first week or so of the season; since the game can match you against people within 30 ranks, at 50 I was going against former Infinites (who all reset to 70), as evidenced by last season's gold card back and some already having the new Rank 80 profile icon. I was hard-stuck in the low 50s no matter what deck I tried, and I read some other people (even former Infinites) saying they had a tough time climbing too; I was very discouraged early on.
Then I saw u/StrngBrew's Drac/Modok Discard deck and decided to return to my original favorite archetype from Pool 1-2 when I first started playing. Besides swapping out Star Lord for Collector (or for techs like Luke Cage or Cosmo at times), this deck helped me shoot up to the 90s, peaking at 98 after a couple weeks! New high achieved.
..But then I hit another wall, this time against Kitty Bounce and Sera Control. Then High Evo came out; I bought him and took him for a spin, but mostly just faced stalemate mirrors or Galactus (still hate that card lol). Tilted down to low 90s, so I made this post to ask for some inspiration and got some great ideas -- most notably DoomWave-centric ones (s/o to u/RayRay_9000, u/Jdizzle201, & u/tipustiger05), and also s/o to u/PhloxInvar for an awesome writeup on the Discard deck (highly recommend fans of the archetype to read that).
Of course, with any experimentation comes growing pains, and that's when I experienced the aforementioned steep learning curve and dipped into the high 80s for a week. Thinking back to the DoomWave lists, I wanted to blend them with High Evo since I still wanted to play with my new card. Ultimately, HE DoomWave is what got me across the finish line, going from 90-100 in a couple days! (Then I was able to mess around in Infinite over the weekend and even got to 110.)

2023.06.06 04:56 Iforgotmynameo Bed Bath & Beyond Digital Dividend

A completely hypothetical tinfoil detached from all reality, just intending to have an interesting discussion… What if Bed Bath & Beyond we’re to give out a digital dividend… it would have no monetary value so they could theoretically get away with giving it to shareholders without creditors arguing shareholders were receiving something due to them first.
This would make the most sense if the Bed Bath portion of the company were purchased by a company that already had NFTs as a part of their business model (*cough Gamestop). Again, there is nothing whatsoever to make anyone believe this would ever happen in a million years…. but… what if it did? Could it theoretically expose the naked shares and cause shorts to close their positions, causing the stock price to rise and allowing Bed Bath to pay its debt by selling some shares?

2023.06.06 04:56 Jasnaa12 I hit the grand jackpot at Ignition Casino 💥

I’ve been playing at Ignition Casino for a while, and I love it. They have tons of games, they take Bitcoin, and they have great bonuses and promotions.
One of them is Hot Drop Jackpots. These are jackpots that must drop before a certain amount or time. They have daily, hourly and super jackpots.
I tried some of these jackpots, playing slots and table games. Then, something incredible happened. I was playing Reels & Wheels XL, a slot with a bonus wheel that can trigger five jackpots.
I got three bonus symbols and triggered the wheel. It spun and landed on…the grand jackpot! I was stunned. The screen exploded with fireworks and confetti, and showed me what I won: $498,765!
I was speechless. I had just won almost half a million dollars! I jumped and screamed with joy. My heart was racing and my hands were trembling. It was unreal.
I checked my balance and saw that it was true. The money was mine. I cashed out with Bitcoin, which was quick and easy. I couldn’t wait to party with my family and friends.
That’s how I hit the grand jackpot at Ignition Casino. It was a miracle, and I’m so thankful for it. I still play at Ignition Casino, because they rock. Maybe I’ll hit another jackpot soon. Who knows?
Have you ever hit a jackpot at Ignition Casino or any other online casino? How did it feel? Tell me your stories in the comments below! 😊IgnitionCasino #OnlineGambling

2023.06.06 04:55 CasualCompetive Possible Polybius Square in Website connected to Polybius Urban Legend

In 2017, Youtuber "Ahoy" made the video "POLYBIUS - The Video Game That Doesn't Exist". In it, he tracks down the origins and influences of popular video game urban legend, Polybius. He concludes that Polybius was started by Kurt Koller, who owns the website coinop.org. Ahoy concludes this because, among other reasons, the earliest known reference to Polybius is an article on the game on coinop.org. When Ahoy emailed Kurt asking if he was responsible for the addition of the game to the site, he responded "[Polybius's entry's] wording on coinop.org is very specific. That is all [he] is allowed to comment on." Ahoy tries to see if there is code hidden inside of the article, taking note of the fact that "disappeared" is spelled "disappeard". He tries to see if there is code that can fit into a Polybius Square, a popular method of encoding. A Polybuis Square works by having a 5 by 5 letter grid be the recorder. Every square in the grid has a letter inside, the code is a group of numbers with both digits being through 1-5. For example, in a grid with a standard alphabet code, the code "44 23 15 41 45 24 13 25 12 42 34 52 33 21 34 53 24 45 32 35 43 34 51 15 42 44 23 15 31 11 55 54 14 34 22" outputs to "the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog". Anyway, Ahoy ultimately turns up fruitless. I tried to see if I could decipher a code hidden inside as well. I took note of the fact that "disappeared" has three letters that appear twice in the word while "disappeard" only had two. I made a C++ program that would take in the article and see all the words that had multiple pairs of letters and produces a code. Every time I ran the program, I changed a factor (the number of letter pairs in each word, whether to delete duplicate words, what information contributes to the code , etc.) What I found interesting, is the case when the code was that for every number of the code, the first digit is the index of the first mention of the first duplicate letter in the word and the second digit is the index of the first mention of the second duplicate letter. In that case, both the first and second digits of the numbers are between 1-5. Still, after experimenting and playing around with the parameters for a couple of days, I have turned up blank. I am at the end of my rope. Below I have left a C++ algorithm as well as a few other resources if someone else wishes to try to decipher this. Obviously, it is possible that there is no secret message at all and that I am on a wild goose chase.
C++ algorithm :
#include #include #include #include #include #include std::vector findDuplicateIndexes(const std::vector& words) {std::unordered_map> wordIndexes;// Iterate over the words and store their indexes in the mapfor (int i = 0; i < words.size(); i++) {const std::string& word = words[i];wordIndexes[word].push_back(i);}std::vector duplicateIndexes;// Iterate over the map and find duplicate wordsfor (const auto& pair : wordIndexes) {const std::vector& indexes = pair.second;if (indexes.size() > 1) {// Exclude the first index when adding duplicate indexesduplicateIndexes.insert(duplicateIndexes.end(), indexes.begin() + 1, indexes.end());}}// Sort the duplicate indexes in ascending orderstd::sort(duplicateIndexes.begin(), duplicateIndexes.end());return duplicateIndexes;}std::vector hasMultiplePairs(const std::string& word) {std::unordered_map letterCount;for (char letter : word) {// Ignore whitespace or non-alphabetic charactersif (!std::isalpha(letter)) {continue;}// Convert the letter to lowercaseletter = std::tolower(letter);// Increment the count for the current letterletterCount[letter]++;}int pairCount = 0;for (const auto& pair : letterCount) {// Count pairs of letters (each pair consists of two occurrences of the same letter)pairCount += pair.second / 2;}std::vector letters;if (pairCount == 2) {auto it = letterCount.begin();while (it != letterCount.end()) {if (it->second < 2) {it = letterCount.erase(it);} else {++it;}}for (const auto& pair : letterCount) {letters.insert(letters.begin(),pair.first);}return letters;} else {return letters;}}
int main() {std::ifstream inputFile("polybius.txt"); // Replace "polybius.txt" with your input file name (if you want to)std::ofstream outputFile("output.txt"); // Replace "output.txt" with your output file name (if you want to)if (!inputFile) {std::cerr << "Error opening input file." << std::endl;return 1;}

// put these following five lines in all double-blackslashes if you dont want duplicate words deletedstd::vector duplicateIndexes = findDuplicateIndexes(words);for (int i =0; i < duplicateIndexes.size(); i++) {words.erase(words.begin()+duplicateIndexes[i]-i,words.begin()+duplicateIndexes[i]-i+1);letters.erase(letters.begin()+duplicateIndexes[i]-i,letters.begin()+duplicateIndexes[i]-i+1);}
for (int i = 0; i < words.size(); i++) {int position = words[i].find(letters[i][0])+1;outputFile << position << words[i].find(letters[i][1])+1 << " ";}
return 0;}
Articles text:
This game had a very limited release, one or two backwater arcades in a suburb of Portland. The history of this game is cloudy, there were all kinds of strange stories about how kids who played it got amnesia afterwards, couldn't remember their name or where they lived, etc.
The bizarre rumors about this game are that it was supposedly developed by some kind of weird military tech offshoot group, used some kind of proprietary behavior modification algorithms developed for the CIA or something, kids who played it woke up at night screaming, having horrible nightmares.
According to an operator who ran an arcade with one of these games, guys in black coats would come to collect "records" from the machines. They're not interested in quarters or anything, they just collected information about how the game was played.
The game was weird looking, kind of abstract, fast action with some puzzle elements, the kids who played it stopped playing games entirely, one of them became a big anti videogame crusader or something. We've contacted one person who met him, and he claims the machines disappeard after a month or so and no one ever heard about them again.
Until the ROM showed up.
Here's what we've found so far:
Found English strings "insert coin" and "press 1 player start" and "only" - looks like a 1 or 2 player game.
Text in the game says "(C) 1981 Sinneslöschen" Maybe a German company?
If anyone has heard any additional information about this game, we'd appreciate hearing about it.
Quick update, we just wanted to go on record here that Steven Roach is full of himself, and knows nothing about this game. We have it on good authority. No, Polybius is not a Tempest prototype. No, Polybius is not a vector game. Does the title screen look vector? No, it does not. We've recently received some new information about the game (today's May 16, 2009), and yes one of us is flying to the Kyiv, Ukraine area tomorrow and yes the trip is related to this information. Stay tuned.

Anyway, I would be really glad if anyone would be able to find a hidden message inside this article. Good luck to anyone who tries to decipher this!

2023.06.06 04:55 JoyfulJourneyman Public Journal To Fix My Life Day 7 of 90

Hello again! I hope you all had a great day. As always, here's a summary for new readers:

This journal is intended to keep me accountable on my journey of healing and self-improvement. I'm determined to climb out of a deep hole, and I believe this journal is a crucial step. I can't promise that reading this will be interesting or fun, but it will be real. With that said, let's begin.

Today was pretty average, and nothing interesting happened, which is okay. Not every day can be an adventure, right?

I woke up early, did a 10-minute meditation, and attended my online class. I had to do a presentation about the marketing process, and it went well. After that, I received a letter from the city informing me that there will be no water supply until 5 pm tomorrow due to construction. So, I prepared myself by filling a couple of thermos with water, I think I'll be good.

After that, I smoked a joint and chilled in my room for a couple of hours. Then, I cooked rice with meat and beans for the whole week. I find it easier to prepare meals in advance. It was really good, and I shared some with a roommate who loved it.

Later, I searched for places to take pictures this weekend and found a beautiful park in my city with a great view of the sunset. I decided to go there on Sunday and challenged myself to invite friends to have a picnic. I'm not used to doing that, but I read somewhere that the best way to make friends is to take the initiative and invite them. So, I took a step out of my comfort zone and invited them. I haven't received their response yet, but I'm pretty sure they will accept.

I've noticed that I've been wasting a lot of time on my phone in the afternoons for the past two days. Tomorrow, I'll challenge myself to go running as a way to exercise and break that habit. I want to start building the habit of running, so I'll start small with 20-30 minutes of running and maybe try jumping rope for 10 minutes afterward (I'll have to figure out how to do that tomorrow, though).

That was my day, not too interesting. See you all tomorrow!

P.S. OMG, I just realized it's been a week since I started this journal! Thank you so much to everyone who reads it daily and supports my journey. You're truly saving someone's life. Love you all.

2023.06.06 04:55 Flame_The_Insane WIBTA If I left everything to my fiancée's niece?

I (67f) and my fiancée (74m) first met when we were in our early twenties. While I did think he was pretty cute, I wanted to keep my options open for a bit, and though his five brothers were all pretty good looking, I decided that I might as well settle down with him. We ended up starting to date in our late twenties to early thirties and moved in together in our mid-thirties. We later got engaged right after I found out I was pregnant with our firstborn O (17f). Now, I've always been a health nut, and my husband has some.. deformities.. that I overlooked because I love him, but I was worried about how it might affect my kids, and by extension, my bloodline.
O, even as a baby, had a very evil look to her, mainly due to her inheriting her father's eyebrows, but seemed otherwise unharmed throughout her life, and when she was 4, we had twins, P and C (13m) They seemed even more normal than their sister, though P did have a bit of an angry eye, it was nowhere near as bad as his sister's and fathers.
I originally planned on leaving a majority of things to my youngest (by a few seconds) C, and this stayed the plan until their birthday.
O had already had her teenage birthday, and had a really squished face, inherited from her father. This worried me for her siblings, as well as to her health, but I hoped for the best. Then came P and C's birthday earlier this morning. I made them a nice cake before I went to work, (Level 8 fitness career, almost 9) and when I returned, I realized the horrors I had casted upon my bloodline by marrying for love.
P looked very- lumpy- to say the least, and I don't even mean in an overweight or buff way, I mean he was weirdly- lumpy- especially in clothes, plus, he was a mid of scary AND hideous! He would never find love like that, but I had still held out hope for my future- until his brother walked out of his bedroom looking like a tube of mostly used toothpaste in human form. I was devistated. My kids were most likely going to pass on their father's deformities onto their kids, my grandkids, IF they managed to find love, and I didn't want to risk the bloodline because of my heart.
Luckily for me, along with having five brothers, my fiancée also has a sister (73) who had two kids, J (19m) and S (16f), who both took after their father rather than their mother, who like all of their siblings, was a bit on the deformed side. This meant her kids looked, NORMAL! I was ecstatic and immediately changed my plan to leave everything to S when she had her birthday. The issue comes when I told my fiancée about this. He lost it on me, saying all sorts of mean things and calling me an asshole because not only had I known the risks of this before ever having kids with him, but also because I was about to leave my own flesh and blood out to rot for someone not even related to me by marriage (we just never got around to it, but did want a ceremony) or blood (I was orphaned as an infant, have no living family). I tried explaining my side of things, with the heath concerns for my grandkids, but he shot back that if I loved my kids, I would never think about replacing them with someone I'm not even related to just because they don't look like the average sim.
I still feel like I might leave everything to S when she turns 20, and since we never married, my fiancée would have no say in it, but his words really got to me, and now I can't stop wondering, WIBTA if I left everything to my fiancée's niece?

2023.06.06 04:54 Vast_Chapter7860 Vet told me that my little mister has arthritis and now I’m in my feelings…

He’s been with me for 10 years already but I would’ve never known, based on how energetic he always seems to be! Plus, his blood work and all other samples, perfecto! They sent me home with a bunch of stuff for him and his other normal medications, so we’re all good there. But after finding out, I started to notice a little more closely…he’s slower to get up and get going in the mornings…he’s quicker to lay down and sleep at night…he needs 10x more rubs and cuddles than he usually asks for…I notice a change and now, I can’t stop thinking about how limited our time left with each other may be 🥺 but what hasn’t changed is my love for him and the fact that I got him until his very last breath. I told him that the very first time I ever held him after adopting him and I stand on that 💯❤️💕🐶 For now, I’ll continue to enjoy the bond we have for what it is, for as long as we have it.

2023.06.06 04:54 HeadOfSpectre The Silver Baron - 5

July 7th Excerpt From the Journal of Violet Stone

I don’t remember much. Just the scenery flying by me as I ran from the train station. I didn’t see anyone chasing me. But I felt chased. I didn’t know what to think, what to feel, or even where the hell I was going. The only thing I felt was fear.

When I finally stopped, it was because I just couldn’t run any further. My lungs burned, begging me for air. So I ducked into an alley, trying to catch my breath, and organize my thoughts. The rain pounding down around me was too loud. The street was too quiet and every car that passed by sent another fresh jolt of terror through me as I replayed what had happened at the train station over and over again in my mind. The way that he’d fallen, the look on his face in the instant before he’d gone under the train. Oh God… I couldn’t get it out of my head! I couldn’t stop seeing it in my mind!

I wanted to go home, but was that even an option? How the hell does someone just go home after something like that? I couldn’t just waltz through the door like nothing was wrong! If Sam and Lisa didn’t notice, Rose sure as hell would and that assuming that the police weren’t already there. Someone could have recognized me! That Marilyn Monroe looking girl on the platform had gotten a good look at me. What if she told someone? It didn’t matter whether I’d meant to push the guy or not! It didn’t matter how much I’d fucking hated him at the time. He was dead. I was responsible. I’d pushed him. It was my fault.

‘I’ve just fucking killed a man!’

That thought… that reality didn’t feel real. It hadn’t truly hit me yet.

I’ve just fucking killed a man!’

I felt sick. If I actually had anything in my stomach, I might have even thrown up. Moving made me feel even worse, so I just stood there, letting the rain soak me to the bone, shaking from the horror and the cold while I tried to figure out what the hell I was going to do next. But all I could think about was the way he looked as the train went over him, and wondering if anything would have changed if I’d at least tried to grab him. Could I have caught him? Could I have saved him? What then? What would happen next? As far as I knew that motherfucker had murdered my goddamn parents! Should I really have even bothered trying to save him? Maybe I should have felt vindicated by all of this? Maybe this was some kind of justice, right? It sure as hell didn’t feel like justice. It’s not like I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that this had been the guy! There were doubts! There were a lot of fucking doubts!

I heard the sirens in the distance. But nobody came for me. I saw a police cruiser pass my alley. It didn’t stop for me, but it did make me think about my sweater. The goddamn sweater… it would probably be enough to identify me, right?

For a moment, I thought about turning myself in to the police. I mean, maybe once I told them that it was an accident, then maybe they’d be cool with it and let me go? I mean, the police are just known for being trustworthy and reasonable, right? What did I possibly have to worry about with them? I could just turn myself in and everything would be hunky fucking dory! ‘Oh, you just threw a man in front of a fucking subway train! Yeah, no big. Go home! Take a load off! Get some coffee! Try not to think about the man you just threw under a fucking subway train!’ Yes! Go to the police Violet! Great idea! And while you’re at it why don’t you do it in the fucking nude too? GREAT IDEA VIOLET! ALMOST AS GREAT AS THE TIME YOU THREW A MAN IN FRONT OF A FUCKING SUBWAY TRAIN! REMEMBER THAT?

I took off the sweater and abandoned it in the nearest dumpster. I hid it under some trash bags and hoped to God that nobody would ever find it, then, after standing in the rain like an idiot for several minutes with no idea on where to go next, I started walking home.

Nobody noticed me.

Nobody followed me.

The city was just… quiet. Not quiet, quiet. But nothing felt out of place. The world around me almost felt normal, and it was my own fault that the normalcy felt wrong somehow.
I entered my old bedroom through the fire escape, just like I used to back in high school when sneaking out at night to drink was the worst thing I’d ever done. I could hear people in the apartment, and I listened to see if any of the voices were unfamiliar. I heard Sam and Lisa talking over breakfast, and I could hear the TV. Nothing out of the ordinary. It satisfied me enough that I was safe. I locked my bedroom door and crawled into bed, pulling the covers over my head and listening to the rain and the voices outside. But I heard nothing out of the ordinary. It was like nothing had happened. Like it was all just a bad dream. Eventually, I fell asleep.

I stayed in bed until well after noon, staring up at the ceiling when I couldn’t sleep anymore. Sam and Lisa both left for work. I could hear Rose going around the house. She’d said that she had the day off, save for classes in the evening. She only bothered me once, though. Knocking on my door to check on me. I told her I was sick, and she didn’t pry. She didn’t sound suspicious. Just concerned.

I kept replaying what had happened at the subway station over and over again in my head. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and I couldn’t stop hating the quiet around me.

Sometimes, I wondered if it was just a bad dream. If maybe I’d never even left my room at all. Maybe I just wanted to believe that. It was better than thinking I’d just killed someone. There was a part of me that didn’t really seem to care. It still hadn’t fully hit me yet. After all, no one had come for me. So maybe it really was just a bad dream? Even if it hadn’t been, how had that man known who my Mom was? What about the things he’d said? Was it just a weird coincidence, or a horrible mistake? Maybe it was both.

I checked my phone when the afternoon began to slip into evening. The whole event was getting hazier in my mind. I was starting to convince myself it hadn’t happened. Lisa had messaged me, asking how I was feeling. Rose must’ve told her I was sick. I lied and said I was feeling a bit better, then I checked the news.

When I read the story I felt sick all over again. No name for my victim, no information at all. The man who’d gone under the train was just identified as ‘a man.’ That was it. Nothing else. There wasn’t even a picture of him.

There was however a picture of me… kinda.

It was blurry as hell. I tried to make out my own face amongst the black and white pixels but I couldn’t. It might have been me as I entered the station, although my hood was over my head, my hair was covered, and the only thing I could sort of identify was my lips, which aren’t exactly that distinct. Really, it could have been anyone in that picture. Anyone at all.

An unknown possible suspect’ It said under the picture. Followed by: ‘The suspect is believed to be male, approximately 6’2 and was last seen wearing a grey hoodie and jeans.’

They got the outfit right, and were only a little off with the height by two inches.

All in all… I can’t say that any of this really seemed damning to me. Although the idea that the police (or at least the news) had no idea who I was didn’t do a whole hell of a lot to calm me down. The idea of ‘getting away with it’ seemed just as bad as being caught.

For the second time that evening, I wondered about turning myself in to the police. I mean, this wasn’t exactly first degree murder. It was an accident! That had to be at least manslaughter, right? I mean, it was still a crime but it wasn’t first degree murder, right?

Christ… I was probably committing an even bigger crime by not coming forward! Why wasn’t I going to the nearest police station? What the hell was stopping me? Fear? Fear of what, consequences? You don’t fucking kill a man and not suffer any consequences! Even if it was an accident, there had to be some kind of consequence, right?

Was it justice? Assuming that this guy really had been the one who’d killed my parents all those years ago, did he really deserve to die like that? Thrown screaming under a train and… and…

God I didn’t even know if it was really the guy or not! It could have been anyone! He could’ve just randomly known my Mom and just so happened to look like her killer! It wasn’t even a perfect resemblance! I mean, fuck, how many fucking people in New York have blond hair, blue eyes and glasses? Thousands at least! Justice wasn’t a valid excuse! It just wasn’t!

I wanted to continue to lie there and stew, but I don’t know if that was really an option anymore. Slowly, I forced myself to get out of bed and head into the kitchen. I’d eaten nothing all day, which wasn’t all that healthy of a diet. As a further fuck you to my digestive system, I rummaged through the cupboard. There was a box of off brand pop tarts that I jammed them in the toaster for breakfast, if you could still call it that at five in the evening.

While I waited for my sugar enriched breakfast to ‘cook’ I raided the fridge for a drink. I found some OJ, and wandered into the living room. Rose had already left for class, but I knew Sam and Lisa would have been home soon.

When they did come home, they found me in the living room, under a blanket and finishing my shitty off brand pastries. Lisa fussed over me, like I knew she would. Sam just took over the TV and changed the channel to something other than the news.

I went to bed early last night, checking the news stories again on my phone before lying awake in bed. I might have slept a little. I couldn’t really say. I was just alone with my thoughts.

I’m not supposed to go back to Toronto for another day or so. But maybe I could leave early? Fuck off, leave all of this behind me and try to move on with my life? Sam and Lisa wouldn’t question it… much. That sounded like a horrible idea though. Just… fucking off, forgetting, pretending that this didn’t happen. It sounded like a mistake. Running away seemed like the exact kind of thing that would come back to bite me in the ass… and then what would I do? Was I supposed to just keep running from it? I knew in my gut that this would only ever make things worse. What would that do to Sam and Lisa? What would it do to Rose? I didn’t want to find out. I didn’t want to put them through that!

As I lay in bed a quiet resignation settled over me… and oddly enough, with it came a bit of peace. I guess even if no one else ever found out about what had happened at Prince Street, even if I took that secret to my grave, it would still gnaw at me. I’d still be looking over my shoulder, waiting for the day to come when it caught up with me. I didn’t want to deal with that. I didn’t want to put my family through that!

So I made a decision.

I don’t know if this will be my final entry or not.. I might not be coming back after this. Sam, Lisa, Rose… if any of you are reading this, I’m sorry. I swear to God, I didn’t mean for any of this to happen.

I’m going to go to the police in the morning and I’m going to turn myself in. So if this is it… well… goodbye.

I hope you don’t hate me too much.


Okay, so what the fuck?

I did the right thing! I turned myself in to the police! I was ready to go to jail over this!

Instead, I’m back in my old bedroom at Sam and Lisa’s and I’m 99.9% sure that I’m off the hook.

I went to the police station. I told them that I was there to confess and up until that point, things went as expected. They took me to an interrogation room and I waited for someone to come and talk to me. I was in there for about an hour, fidgeting aimlessly with my hands and waiting for some kind of judgment before someone finally bothered to show up.

The guy who walked through the door had a sort of ex military look to him. His eyes were intense and he had a muscular physique with a neatly trimmed goatee. He didn’t say a word to me as he came in. He just looked down at the file in his hands before sitting down at the desk.

“Violet Stone, right?” He asked. Straight to business. I always thought that Detectives were supposed to come off as friendly at first. This guy seemed like he’d come in with the express purpose of kicking my ass.
“Yeah, I’m Violet.” I said.

He looked up at me, sizing me up for a moment before huffing.
“Alright… well Violet, well my name is Vincent Bennett. I’m the Detective assigned to the Arthur White case. I understand you’re here with information, correct?”

Arthur White? Was that the name of the guy I’d killed?
“Yeah… I was… I was the one on the subway platform with him.”
“The one who pushed him?” Bennett asked.

I hesitated for a moment before nodding.
“It… it was an accident!” I said, “He’d grabbed my arm, I was just trying to get him off of me!”
“Right… tell you what Violet, why don’t you walk me through what happened yesterday morning, okay? Tell me everything that you remember.”

I did just that. I told him about how I’d run into Arthur and his daughter while I’d been out on a jog, I told him about how he’d mentioned my mother and how I’d followed him, and finally I told him about what had happened on the subway platform.

The whole time, Bennett just took notes and nodded quietly, only pausing a few times to ask a question.
“So - you attest that it was an accident, that Mr. White fell into the path of the oncoming train?” He asked.
“Yeah… yeah, it was.” I said.
“Okay. You mind if I ask why it took so long for you to come forward?” He asked, “I mean… this happened yesterday morning. It’s been at least twenty four hours.”

“I was panicking!” I said, “Look, I didn’t know what to do or if I should come forward or what!”
“A man was killed,” Bennett replied. “And you fled the crime scene. You also took a while to come forward. Forgive me if I find any of that suspicious.”
“Well, I’m trying to do the right thing now!” I argued although Bennett’s stony expression didn’t seem to change much.

“Miss Stone… are you aware of who Arthur White is?” He asked. “Do you know much about the White family?”
That question of his seemed awfully loaded.

“No, why are they important?” I asked.
“Depends on which circles you run in,” Bennett replied. “I’m gonna be honest with you… Arthur White was a real piece of shit. I wouldn’t really call him the worst member of the White family. Arguably he made the rest of them look saintly in comparison. But he was still a man with a… history. You say he resembled the man who you believed killed your parents… was that your only motivation for following him to the Prince Street station?”
“He mentioned my Mother by name!” I said, “He said he knew Diana Stone!”

Bennett paused, before looking up at me again.
“You’re Diana Stone’s daughter?” He asked.
My brow furrowed.
“What, you knew her too?” I asked.
“I’ve… heard the name before.”

My heart skipped a beat.
“So he did kill them…” I said softly, “You’re telling me that he did kill them?”
“Arthur White was not a suspect in the Diana Stone murder, no. His-”

Bennett’s phone started to ring before he could finish whatever it was that he was trying to say. His ringtone was the opening riff of ‘Phantom of the Opera’ by Iron Maiden.

He paused, tensing up a little at the sound of the ringtone. Then he quietly reached into his pocket to take his phone out. He stared at the screen, which depicted a big red X on it, before quietly standing up.

“Excuse me,” He said softly as he left the room, and for a few minutes, I sat there in the uneasy silence, waiting for him to come back. I found myself fidgeting with my hands again as I looked over at the mirror that dominated the wall to my left. I figured that there had to be someone behind it, watching me. Maybe it was Bennett? I squinted, trying to see if I could see him behind the glass, but there was no luck.

The only thing I saw was my own reflection, squinting back at me like an idiot and the security camera in the corner behind me. I looked back up at the camera, staring into it for a moment. I wondered if maybe Bennett was watching me through there. Maybe nobody was watching me? It was hard to say. I stared back into the iris of the camera for a moment, before the door opened again and Detective Bennett came back in. I saw him stuffing his phone back into his pocket.

Something about his demeanor had changed, but it was hard to say exactly what. When he spoke to me again, his tone was much quieter.
“Thank you for your time, Miss Stone. We have all we need. You’re free to go.”

Free to go?

“Wait, what?” I asked. “I… I just killed a guy! What do you mean I’m free to go!”
“You indicated that Mr. White’s death was an accident, correct?” Bennett asked. “That’s all we need. Go home, kid.”
I stared at him in disbelief. He was just letting me go? I’d fucking killed a man and they were just letting me go? That didn’t make any sense!

“So that’s it?” I asked, “You’re not going to arrest me or… or press charges or…?”
“No. We’re not,” He said. “You’re free to go.”

He picked up his folder and headed for the door again, pausing before looking up at the camera and then back to me. He held the door open for me, and after a moment, I got up and followed him.
“Do I need to get a lawyer?” I asked.
“That won’t be necessary,” He replied as he led me back through the police station. Once we were back at the front door, he pushed through and gestured for me to follow.

Once we were outside, I watched him take out a pack of cigarettes and a lighter.
“So that’s just it, then?” I asked. This whole thing still confused me.
Detective Bennett still didn’t reply. He just looked up toward the building, before taking a drag on his cigarette.
“Take my advice, kid… don’t ever look a gift horse in the mouth. It might not always be so pretty on the inside,” He didn’t look at me as he said that. He started down the steps of the police station, before pausing. “And do yourself a favor, keep your head down for the next little while.”

“What’s that supposed to mean?” I asked, but Detective Bennett was already walking away from me.

I’m not an idiot.

Something isn’t right here. I just don’t know what.

I keep thinking back to the phone call Bennett got. I’ve got a feeling that it had something to do with my sudden release. What I don’t know is what or why and to be honest, I’m not sure that I want to find out.

Bennett told me to keep my head down, and I’m smart enough to take his advice.

I’m leaving tonight.

I’m going to let Sam, Lisa, and Rose know over dinner. I’ll think of some bullshit excuse. Maybe I’ll say that it’s a work thing, or something. They’re not going to check. I’m supposed to be heading home in a couple of days anyway, so they’re not going to think too much of it if I leave early.

Either way, whatever the hell I’ve gotten myself into, I want to get out of it sooner rather than later.

2023.06.06 04:54 FrenchyFried05 I am 15 And Recently Lost My Father This Year

At around 1 AM on May 16th I lost my dad to cardiac arrest and I watched it all go down in the hospital with my mother, my aunts, and my older brothers (who are in their thirties). Earlier, he was diagnosed with liver silicosis, he was quite a drinker.
During his last days he told me he was sick and was suffering from a ton of back pain, so of course I made sure he was comfortable as possible, and came to his service whenever he needed me. On his last day he could barely stand up and my mom and I didn't know what to do, as he was taken to the hospital (Kaiser Permanente) the day before his death and they said the tests all came back negative, then pretty much kicked us out the room. The day after, he fell unconscious and was unresponsive for the rest of time, and we did call 911. Later though he died in the hospital.
These past few days I've been trying to figure out if he knew he was dying. On his last day (just an hour before he fell unconscious) he asked me to give him a cigarette and walk him to the front porch, so fulfilling his order I did. The thing was, smoking on front porches isn't allowed in our neighborhood. That led me to thinking he wanted to look outside for one last time perhaps. But I'm not sure. At the same time he wasn't eating the food we offered either. But he looked up at me and very personally said "Thank you." Those were his last words to me.
I miss my dad very much and he always told me he cared for me the most. One year prior to his death he told me that if he ever left us that I would be the man of the house.
I just want to know if he knew he was going to die. It makes me sad to think he wasn't embracing it. I think it would make me feel better if I know he knew.

2023.06.06 04:54 JoyfulJourneyman Public Journal To Fix My Life Day 7 of 90

Hello again! I hope you all had a great day. As always, here's a summary for new readers:

This journal is intended to keep me accountable on my journey of healing and self-improvement. I'm determined to climb out of a deep hole, and I believe this journal is a crucial step. I can't promise that reading this will be interesting or fun, but it will be real. With that said, let's begin.

Today was pretty average, and nothing interesting happened, which is okay. Not every day can be an adventure, right?

I woke up early, did a 10-minute meditation, and attended my online class. I had to do a presentation about the marketing process, and it went well. After that, I received a letter from the city informing me that there will be no water supply until 5 pm tomorrow due to construction. So, I prepared myself by filling a couple of thermos with water, I think I'll be good.

After that, I smoked a joint and chilled in my room for a couple of hours. Then, I cooked rice with meat and beans for the whole week. I find it easier to prepare meals in advance. It was really good, and I shared some with a roommate who loved it.

Later, I searched for places to take pictures this weekend and found a beautiful park in my city with a great view of the sunset. I decided to go there on Sunday and challenged myself to invite friends to have a picnic. I'm not used to doing that, but I read somewhere that the best way to make friends is to take the initiative and invite them. So, I took a step out of my comfort zone and invited them. I haven't received their response yet, but I'm pretty sure they will accept.

I've noticed that I've been wasting a lot of time on my phone in the afternoons for the past two days. Tomorrow, I'll challenge myself to go running as a way to exercise and break that habit. I want to start building the habit of running, so I'll start small with 20-30 minutes of running and maybe try jumping rope for 10 minutes afterward (I'll have to figure out how to do that tomorrow, though).

That was my day, not too interesting. See you all tomorrow!

P.S. OMG, I just realized it's been a week since I started this journal! Thank you so much to everyone who reads it daily and supports my journey. You're truly saving someone's life. Love you all.

2023.06.06 04:54 phuckZero Ok... I'll come clean too.

Ever scammed someone out of their baal quest for a g rush?
Well I have... many times.
Remember, in legacy D2, you can't see normal games after killing normal baal for the quest... you can't see nightmare games after killing nightmare baal for the quest. People grinding levels wanted to stay in normal until about level 40 doing normal baal.. and then do NM baal until eh... 50 or so... People didn't stay in NM long.
Well.. I'd g-rush my friend with no consenting bumper by doing this:
I'd rush my friend to normal act 5... he's level 1 still.
I'd tell him to make a public baal game... "normal baal -3" or something.
So I'd have him sit in a5 .. I'd go kill all of Baal's minions... and static baal all the way down...
So then we wait (which, back in the day in 2003, didn't take long)... When someone joined the game... you KNOW they don't have the baal quest... because they wouldn't have seen it in the list if they did.
So, then we start our act.
Me: Man FUCK this game... I quit... I can't believe he took that entire account from me....
Him: Dude don't sweat it man... you still have like 300+ sojs..
Me: .. nah fuck it... i'm dropping everything in worldstone... TP up.
**at this time... my chat is blown up with "PP" ... even whispers**
so he keeps hyping it up... maybe a minute or so
I invite the random baal questless fucker... he enters tp... baal dies... friend bumped.
Yeah... been waiting almost 20 years to come clean. I think I probably did this to 20+ people.

2023.06.06 04:54 ApplicationOk2979 Anyone in Dallas/FW area up for giving boops, lovins, scratchums, treats and pspspsps to a kitty in need of a foster? A lot of patience is required. She recently had babies, now weaned, and another foster was able to take them in. Need help for mama 🥺 Just spayed.

Anyone in Dallas/FW area up for giving boops, lovins, scratchums, treats and pspspsps to a kitty in need of a foster? A lot of patience is required. She recently had babies, now weaned, and another foster was able to take them in. Need help for mama 🥺 Just spayed.
We aren’t sure if she is a stray who once had a home or a feral, although she isn’t aggressive. Seems to be about a year old. Rescue thinks she needs a little more time to get warmed up to people, but they don’t have any volunteers to take her in. They had her for a month and said they weren’t able to tame her and are planning on releasing her this Wednesday unless they can find a volunteer! They would help you out for sure. The lady who fostered her feels a month was too short so is anyone up for the challenge? She has never hissed at me and before the rescue got her and her babies, she did come a few steps towards me when I had food. I would do it but I have a huge dog and two cats so I feel my home would be very stressful for her.

2023.06.06 04:52 throwaway9696837181 Need advice!!

27m No gallbladder History of stomach pains Hital hernia Acid reflux
2015 - started getting stomach pains, which began my life of constant throwing up to this day
2017 - first endoscopy came up nothing
2018 - found blood on stool and after a colonoscopy it came out to be a benign juvenile polyp which they removed, second colonoscopy in 2020 shows im chillin
2021 - still having horrible stomach pains, In December 2021 I had emergency surgery to remove my gallbladder
2022 - living life still struggling, I do another endoscopy and they see an ulcer and hiatal hernia which after a couple months of protonix and strict diet. Ulcer went away after a follow up endoscopy
2023 - still throwing up from pain, burning feeling in my stomach, constant acid reflux. Diarrhea and days where I feel so sick, 1/2023 did a ultrasound endoscopy and saw no sludge in bile duct but did find an accessory spleen, and my hiatal hernia.
April 2023 I do a pill endoscopy and they find a ulcer deep inside my small intestine you can see the image here
He mentioned I need to do a push entroscopy and will see if he can find it,
May 2023 he couldn’t find the ulcer and doesn’t feel like he should do a balloon endoscopy. He said it was way to deep and leant wanna do a colonoscopy and put a breathing tube in and find it that way. He checked biopsies for chrons disease and SIBO, celiac, UC, and others and came back negative. Blood works came back elevated which you can see link below
He mentioned he isn’t concerned about it being chrons tho because it’s slightly elevated. And he said I will take protonix at night. He also prescribed me mesalamine to take 4 times in the morning.
How do I treat the ulcer? Is it cancer? Tumor? I’m lost and it’s hard to get answers. I don’t wannna wait and I’m scared to know if it’s something bad

2023.06.06 04:51 quartersinacokecan Roland V-Drum Sounds??

This is more of a curiosity question than anything. So I did some Googling, and couldn't find information, but does anyone by chance know how they record the sounds for Roland V-Drum modules? Have they every released information about what drums and cymbals they used? I assume they definitely altered it digitally, but I thought the sound must have originally been acoustic.

2023.06.06 04:51 ratprey what to wear at job

hi i’m transmasc and 18 and my first ever job interview is on wednesday for walmart. i’ve never had a job before, so i’m wondering what kind of clothing i can wear to work everyday so customers and coworkers don’t misgender me. incase it’s needed for reference, im either going to be a stocker or one of those people who have to choose groceries for customers who make online/app orders. also, to any other trans person who’s worked at walmart, did you come out as trans to your higher ups and coworkers? if you did, were you treated well and were they respectful of your identity, name, and pronouns? i’m nervous about facing problems because of my identity. thank you in advance to anyone who responds!

2023.06.06 04:51 MrsHarris2019 Rear ended on interstate with toddler in the car

Idk why I’m posting. We just got our 3 year old home from the emergency room and everything just hit me.
It wasn’t my car. It was a U-Haul pick up truck. We’ve had a car in the shop for 3 months (that’s it’s own shit show) and have been renting cars which costs a fortune. This week tho I really only needed a car today to take our daughter speech at 11:30 and PT at 2pm. I also have a huge load of stuff in my basement that’s been waiting to go to the dump/goodwill/thrift store. So I thought it would be a two birds one stone to get a pick up truck and it was only $50 for the day, extra insurance, and the miles I’d be using.
We picked up the U-Haul and I realized it didn’t have a back seat. I panicked because I needed to be able to put a car seat it in, it had tethers and a picture so I did some research. It’s legal in my state, our car seat manual had instructions, the car manual had instructions, and I double checked what else you should do with the Red Cross website. I did all of that and felt uneasy but it was the middle of the day on a Monday we rarely encounter many other vehicles during our drives to therapy appointments and never have any traffic so I brushed it off.
Leaving PT we had been on the interstate maybe 2 minutes when a blue SUV rams into us.
No air bag deploys for me, it was a large jostle but in that moment I was calm. Pulled over, called 911, called my husbands work, called my mom and waited. My daughter is screaming bloody murder. I orginally told 911 I didn’t need an ambulance but she didn’t calm down, she has autism and doesn’t always answer questions. 30 minutes go by and she hasn’t calmed down at all so I call 911 again and say I do want EMS to come look at my daughter while we wait for the police. But I am calm.
The other car is folded up like an accordion. But I still wanted to get out of the truck and beat the shit out of him but I wasn’t panicking just a calm quiet anger.
EMS arrives they say my daughter doesn’t need an ambulance but we should take her for an X-ray just to be sure everything is okay. Then the police and my husband arrive. I am still calm
I drive to the next exit and my husband puts the car seat in my car that he drove today and he takes over driving the U-Haul and follows me making sure no one besides him is behind me. I still feel calm.
We drop the U-Haul off, head to the pediatric ER. We tell them we were in a car accident and they call it in as a trauma alert, we go back to a room filled with people. I am calm.
They do a bunch of tests and she’s completely fine so we go home. I am no longer calm. I can’t stop thinking about how bad it could have been if he was going faster when he hit us or how absolutely devastating it would have been if I was driving my own vehicle. My car is so small that SUV would have destroyed my car and I doubt we would have gotten out without injury. It would have been so bad. I know it wasn’t I know my daughter is fine and I think I am fine but as whatever calm focus I had leaves my body I now notice how bad my back hurts.
I had just started to get over how anxious I was driving my daughter around. I use to have panic attacks when I drove her more that 15 minutes. I was almost back to normal. Now I don’t ever want to put her back in a car. I don’t want to drive on the interstate ever again or anywhere for that matter. I don’t know how I’m going to drive that same section of interstate every Monday for PT. I don’t want to.
U-Haul was understanding that with the ER visit I couldn’t return it tonight and are waiving the fee for an extra rental day. But I think I’m going to call them tomorrow and ask if anyone can come pick up the truck because I cannot get back into it. I feel so dramatic, everyone is fine, I won’t have to pay for the damage to the truck, I won’t even have to pay for my daughters ER visit, by all definitions I don’t even think this counts as a moderate collision on my end. But it was so scary. He hit us at 75mph. We were going 55 which was the speed limit. I just can’t stop thinking about how bad it could of been.

What You Get:



Designing a Blockbuster Hit Starts Here
The best products start with the best and most profitable ideas — which don’t happen by chance nor by waiting for lightning to strike.
It takes a proven process to zero in on the idea with the potential to fly off the shelves.
In this module, you’ll discover my Profitable Product Idea. You will:
  • Choose the best product and audience for you to profit from right now
  • Make sure your Idea passes all 7 Criteria of the Profitable Niche Checklist
  • Express your Idea in one simple phrase that attracts your target market in droves
  • Pre-validate there’s demand for your Idea in a way that automatically lines up your future customers
  • Create your Profitable Product Idea Blueprint so you have everything in one place
This process was developed over 7 years and 7,000 students, and can shave months or even years off your journey from idea to profit.
Whether you don’t have any ideas, or you have too many ideas, or you’re not sure whether your idea will work, your Blockbuster Hit Product starts here.


Turning Your Idea Into an Irresistible Offer
In this module, you’ll take your profitable idea and transform it into the kind of thing folks will line up to buy.
We call it your “Offer”, and it’s the scaffolding around your idea that makes it real. Elements such as:
  • Your blockbuster course name, your price point, your guarantee, bonuses and the reasons to buy now
  • The points of credibility that create massive buyer trust — even if you’re just getting started
  • Your uniquely valuable “process” — how you go about getting your students results (a huge selling point)
  • The social proof to start attracting paying customers immediately, even if this is the first time you’re doing this
The right offer can triple or even quadruple your sales, while the wrong offer will turn a great Idea into a ghost town.
By the end of this module, you’ll have the deep confidence that comes from knowing that everything you’re creating is exactly what your audience wants to buy.
Now you’ll be ready for Module 3, where we’ll start building!


Creating Your Minimal Viable Product & Getting to Market Fast
By the end of this module, you’ll create just enough of your new program or course to be able to start making real, actual sales to real actual customers.
So many programs stop short of this critical step, and leave you stranded, wondering how to bridge the gap between theory and practice. That’s a huge mistake, because it’s critical to test the real world response to your offer before you create your whole course or product, while you still have time to make easy changes and pivots.
Some folks hit it out of the park on the first try, while others need to refine and adjust for a few cycles before they land on just the right thing. Either way, this process ensures you never waste months and thousands of dollars creating the wrong thing.
In this Module you’ll:
  • Use the “paint-by-numbers” MVP process to choose the exact pieces of your product and how they fit together
  • Finalize your Launch “Blueprint”, including the exact concrete steps to get to market FAST and start making sales straight away
  • Choose and deploy one of the 3 simple marketing & promotion campaigns to locate and find the people most likely to want to buy from you
  • Copy/paste from our pre-written campaign messaging templates to immediately have people wanting to know more (versus tuning out or scrolling past)
  • Follow the word-for-word sales scripts to confidently sell your MVP and start taking money even before the end of the module!


Reach Even More People & Make Even More Sales
Now that you’ve proven your offer by making some sales, our optional Module 4 is where you can take your marketing even further by stacking 2-3 campaigns together to create a supercharged, multiplier effect.
Whether you stack simple campaigns, requiring little-to-no technology, or more robust campaigns — this is how you realize Goal X. A whole lot more. Whatever that looks like to you.
In this Module, get ready to turn a handful of sales into an avalanche:
  • Get our EIGHT pre-written ready-to-go “Experience Marketing” Campaigns that you can just plug right in
  • Recieve my entire vault of pre-written scripts, emails, web page templates, sales & video scripts that you can take and customize or just use “as is” — they’re yours and they’ve generated literally millions of dollars for my other students
  • Create a Custom Campaign Stack that suits your dominant marketing style — whether you prefer to sell through 1:1 conversations, speaking to groups, or writing — so marketable feels easier than it ever has before
  • Recieve my entire vault of pre-written scripts, emails and web page templates that you can take and customize or just use “as is” — they’re yours and they’ve generated literally millions of dollars for my other students
  • Stand out with your marketing in a powerful, unique, fresh and engaging way that gets the attention of your ideal customers, which is 99% of the battle in today’s noisy marketplace, so you can make some real money
After that, we start to really dial up the “WOW” for your students…


Supercharge Your Results
Now that you’ve proven your product with real sales and you have a plan for reaching even more people and making even more money, this is where we pour fuel on the fire by “experiencifying” your course.
“Experiencification” is the process of stacking the 10 Core Experiences of The Experience Formula™ into every element of your Experience Product, to increase the effectiveness of your product by 10-30 times.
In this Module you’ll:
  • “Experiencify” your program with the 10 Core Experiences of The Experience Formula™ to create an engaging experience that works with (rather than against) the brain to get your customers “hooked” on taking action and getting results
  • Watch as your students spontaneously put down distractions and excuses and become “achievement machines”, focused on taking action, getting results and bringing more customers your way
  • Embed a powerful process for gathering success stories right into your course, so you can quickly have dozens if not hundreds of glowing testimonials (this is how I ended up with 1480 testimonials and counting for EPM!)


If you're wondering why our courses are priced lower than the original prices and are feeling a bit suspicious (which is understandable), we can provide proof of the course's contents.

2023.06.06 04:50 Alive_Dog6469 Is there really no PREVENTION for a dissolving marriage between (40M) and (36F)? What can I do as a desperate (18M) do?

Heya folks,
I don’t think I’d be the appropriate person consulting advice here, but there’s just a lot on my plate and mind, right now. And I need some serious help. Long post!
So, my mom (36) and pop (40), have been married for well over ‘20 years’, and I was never the one to really pay close attention to the stability of the relationship, but I think it’s all finally crashing down now. So I just need some advice on what I can do, as a son or a third-party. For a bit of background, both my parents are foreign citizens residing in Australia, now as Australian Citizens, who now both ‘hate’ each other? I don’t have the full scope of the circumstances involved, but it’s gotten pretty serious, and I’ll try detailing what’s been happening.
So, my mom apparently met this new guy during work about 1.5 months ago, and they’ve been talking; texting; opening up to each other ever since. Because of the late night drives, and busy schedules during the day (even though she recently has been unemployed), it aroused my dad’s suspicion, in saying that, he confronted her yesterday revealing all the texts and even ended up talking to the dude. Needlessly to say, I was pretty livid because, this made dad cry. Even a police report was made regarding the whole situation, where the dude my mom was conversing with, got a ADVO. But the real issue arises, where, this dude was/is an emotionally manipulative shit. I don’t know, how superficial this dude is, but his words are stringing my mom’s heart pretty well.
He’s ‘sad’ or betrayed apparently, and keeps brining points about suicide or coerces her to some degree. From my understanding, he’s a student to some capacity, who’s already in a relationship? Again, my understanding of this whole debacle is vague. I feel like things are going to escalate way too quickly, if something isn’t done. As for me, I’m currently living with my parents, and my dad has given me the final verdict of what they should do. Divorce or no. I’m having mixed opinions because I’m seeing new evidence, but also stressed about how this is going to affect the family, and am worried about my little sister (5). I thought maybe family/marriage counselling would be appropriate, but I don’t think one of the party will comply, so I really can’t force it.
A bit of insight into the relationship is, mom won’t open up to me, though I try to be neutral as possible, keep denying every facet of her relationship with the bloke—stating things like, how I wouldn’t understand, or that it’s over (clearly isn’t). Dad, who is a hard-ass but does loves us, he’s just not very emotionally adept. I am trying to understand everyone’s thought, opinions, but again no one is listening. The relationship between mother and father, would be toxic, as they do bicker and argue a lot due to mom’s financial habits. But the toxicity has culminated to the point where it’s either divorce or remaining stationary. Advised dad to be more understanding, and mom to be a bit more open, but they’re both on each other’s throat. This dude who my mom’s also been talking too is making everything way worse, even trying to convince her to run away and marry him???
I don’t want to assume anything, but maybe it’s my mom’s way of letting loose? Her form of escapism, maybe finally finding someone who understands her? I don’t know. But what I do know is there is a serious problem. Also, divorce isn’t really that easy of a process, variables such as my dad not being fluent in English, finances and emotional impact on my sister’s well-being are just some I’d list.
I am so lost, please help. I have also have had responses to stay out of it at all cost, which fair be it, this really shouldn’t be my problem. But I’m either guilt tripped or stressed about how the implications may impact my little sister’s wellbeing.

2023.06.06 04:49 harvickfan2018 Just plain sad nascar gaming for consoles is dead

So I'm fed up with motorsport games and all the bull shit 😒 like what the fuck is going on. One minute they say oh we are working on the next big nascar game for people who don't have iracing..... Then the next fucking thing is its not coming were sorry we don't have the resources and etc.
Well I'm to the point here where if iracing the company or who ever owns them needs to find a way to buy them so we can't a fucking legit 😤 playable game. I can't even turn on heat 5 without getting pissed off and turning it off anymore. Nascar needs to grill motorsport games and give it to iracing/monster games look how popular the world of outlaws game is.
Per Steam db everything has stopped on development for nascar ignition and heat 5 unfortunately what is everyone on vaction? Where is the IndyCar game does it even work. 🤔 Hell HALF OF THE PEOPLE WHO WORK THERE PLAY IRACING HMMM SPEAKS VOLUMES IMO. NASCAR DOESNT EVEN KNOWLEDGE A CONSOLE GAME JUST IRACING TINGS.
Even the pro league guys are on iracing that should speak about what has happened to console Nascar games.
Are we just supposed to wait around and see what Mr. Hood can do or jump to iracing for a simulation experience we are doomed for nascar gaming imo. It's run its course I guess 🤷
They promised us a next gen on the heat 5 well apparently its canceled plus they closed to smaller studios including the Orlando location apparently its sad nascar gaming is fell off the rails.

2023.06.06 04:49 fd1830 COSTMETIC DENTISTRY ADVICE

My dad had 10 upper crowns done in 2001 from the best cosmetic dentist in the city at the time - all intact 22 years later. They still look incredible, better than veneers of today but they cost a fortune (literally). In 2001 it was worth the money because so many dentists did unconvincing "chiclet" block teeth. IMO his only issue was doing uppers only, so the lowers were a different shade. My genetics isn't "pearly white" it's a "natural bone" colour so I'd get 10 upper + 10 lower. His were crowns but I'm only referring to veneers in the rest of the post.
I'm seeing amazing work for as little as $1k and up to $6k. I'm finding hard to distinguish $6k vs $1k per tooth, especially in different countries and currencies. Obviously theres many options inside that range. BTW I'm only considering legitimate regulated practices!!
Are technique/technology improvements bringing costs down? I've always understood cosmetic dentistry to be among the most expensive cosmetic work you can have done.
I know experience is a major cost factor, but even skilled dentists vary. What risks come with less experienced dentists (veneer longevity, enamel loss, etc)?
Something that confused me was looking at veneers from well-regarded prosthodontists... the veneers looked good, but not as natural/complicated/artistic as many from normal cosmetic dentists. I thought prosthodontists were supposed to be masters of restorations like this. This surprised me.
When I asked about veneers my dentist shut it down completely and told me to do Invisalign instead, which I did. I took this as a sign he's a good dentist putting the patient before money (4.5k/tooth). If the costs are justified, I'll definitely go with him... but that's roughly $90k for 20 veneers which I could put towards some other things I also want done.
TLDR; Basically I'm seeing some really amazing porcelain veneers (especially on instagram) in the 1-2k range now and I'm finding it really hard to justify (or at least understand) $5-6k per tooth with today's advancements in dentistry.

2023.06.06 04:49 AustralianChrono Chronologica's Drag Race Season 4: Episode 8- Big Mother Lip Sync

Rachelle Mirage struts the runway wearing a pantsuit in orange and red.
“Hello world!”
“Welcome to Drag Race.”
Rachelle smiles.
“Ms Michaels, how you doing?”
“I’m fabulous baby.” Floss grins. “How YOU doing?”
“Amazing. Let’s kick out Chronologica!” Rachelle cackles.
Floss winks.
“Tanvi Lioness, are you ready to see these comedians shine?”
“It’s time for them to exit the house.” Tanvi smirks.
“For our Challenge, our racers were tasked with competing in the BIG MOTHER improv challenge!”
“And on the runway, they’ll be wearing Red Velvet looks.”
“It’s TIME!”
“Category is… Red Velvet!”
Crayola Boxx struts out in a red ball gown, uttering the shape of a cake. She’s got a big, swirly skirt, and she spins around and around, with little bits of ‘frosting’ spurting out of the stage. She’s got a big red updo and a smile on her face.
“Not the spurting.” Floss looks around awkwardly.
“It reminds me of what you used to-” Rachelle stops after looking at Floss’ rageful face.
Aguacate struts out in a full ball gown, with multiple layers of luscious red velvet cake. She twirls down the runway, revealing a big slice has been taken right out of her backside, exposing the real cake, which is completely bare. Aguacate takes a lick of her delicious frosting, and licks her fingers clean!
“Oh… Aguacate did it so much better than Crayola.” Tanvi whispers to Rachelle.
Wearing a surprisingly high-fashion number, Jaslene Bangus walks down the runway. Her hair is dark and slicked back into a high pony. The outfit itself, however, is a two-piece suit made entirely out of red velvet. The collar and front of the suit jacket is made to resemble the red curtains of a theater. As she walks, her face showcases class and poise.
“Thank God it’s not another cake look.” Rachelle says.
Zazu Nova arrives in a Lightning Mcqueen inspired form-fitting red velvet catsuit, hugging the her curves, with black accents in the form of lightning bolts paying homage to Lightning McQueen's design, and red velvet jacket with racing patches adding an edgy and rebellious vibe to the look as she struts with a smile.
“Vroom Vroom.” Floss smiles.
Granny Gorgeous enters the stage in a red velvet cape, a huge one that covers her entire body and makes her frame not so visible. With a long red wig, Granny is serving caftan velvet realness with a smirk.
“Oh, she’s giving Granny.” Tanvi smirks.
Fiore Stravaganza shines in a sleek velvet dress that hugs her body tight. She’s got a massive red headdress, made of the same red velvet material, replacing a wig like Fiore would normally rock. Her face is expressively painted, and Fiore looks like a star.
“Gorgeous.” Rachelle smiles.
Yasmin Raiz oozes sex appeal, strutting the runway in a deep red velvet bodycon dress that hangs low off her shoulders, with a little cream flower pin on her bosom. She wears sheer cream nylon gloves with a small ruffled bow at the wrist, a perfectly coiffed cream-blonde wig, small deep red glasses with flower-shaped frames, and carries a cream fur coat, as if she doesn’t even need the reveal.
“Delicious.” Floss winks.
King Omari Star stuns as he enters the stage in a red velvet kilt, with an asymmetrical shirt that has a matching long, flowy cape along with it. He’s got a massive pair of red platform boots, and as he walks, he gives every inch of royalty with a smirk.
“He loves a cape.” Rachelle chuckles.
“Hi Racers.” Rachelle purses her lips. “Nobody is safe.”
“First up… Yasmin.”
Yasmin smiles.
“You really have a soulful vibe, and I enjoy it.” Tanvi nods. “You hit the marks comedically, you enjoyed yourself and I was really quite pleased to see it.”
“Thank you!” Yasmin grins.
“It was a real fun time, and I do think you really were one of the highlights to see. Solid work, girl.” Rachelle smiles, “You have been consistent these past couple of weeks, and you only leave me wanting a little bit more, and I must say that I do think this look is a good switch for you. Keep up the good work.”
Yasmin bows.
Fiore smiles.
“You look gorgeous.” Racehelle grins. “Like, wow.”
Fiore flicks back her invisible hair and smirks.
“In this challenge, I did wish I got to see MORE from you in the challenge, though. It feels as if something is keeping you from fully going out like you did in, let’s say, the Snatch Game..”
Fiore nods.
“Just need- more engagement. I feel as if you’re hardening up, going back into that inner shell, when I want you to let us see even more of you. Pretty will only get you so far, Fiore.”
“I can assure you, this is me.” Fiore looks at Rachelle.
“Well…” Rachelle nods.
“Moving on, Jaslene.”
Jaslene looks at the judges.
“YAS! Girl, this look is great.” Floss smiles. “I damn love it.”
“Thank you.” Jaslene nods.
“I feel you have been middle of the road for a few weeks. But this week, I saw the effort baby. But it is not quite enough. I’m going to need you to keep driving- because at this point, I feel as if you’re lagging behind.”
“Noted.” Jaslene says.
“Hii…” Zazu says awkwardly.
“I think we know.” Rachelle says.
“Yes.” Zazu responds.
“This wasn’t quite the best performance. Well, you stumbled. I wanted to see you do well, but unfortunately- it wasn’t quite enough, and I’m going to need you to fight for this.”
“I do want to do this.” Zazu purses her lips. “For me, I feel challenged here. But I will always take every single critique and fight for the crown.”
“That is what I need.” Rachelle looks at Zazu. “Keep it going.”
Zazu nods in agreement.
Omari adjusts his cape.
“You have a royal presence to you.” Tanvi says.
“King Omari Star.” Omari smirks. “Is my full name.”
“I can see it.” Tanvi responds. “I think you had a good balance of funny and real. I enjoyed you this week.”
Omari smiles.
“I wanted you to push yourself out of your comfort zone this week, and you did. And for that I have to commend you” Rachelle responds. “Well done.”
“Thank you.” Omari grins.
“Hello.” Granny says.
“I am loving this look.” Rachelle looks at Granny. “It’s giving- a bit generic, but also- I do feel like you’re reinforcing that idea said a few weeks ago- I am seeing a lack of brand.”
“Okay…” Granny smiles, ever the pleaser.
“I want you to get dirty this week, but you did not.” Rachelle says. “And I'm going to need you to further think on what your drag is- what you bring. Because again- at this point, that’s really important.”
“I understand.” Granny smiles.
“¡Hola!” Aguacate winks.
“You’re pure chaos!”
“AHHHHH!” Aguacate screams.
Tanvi giggles.
“That is what I liked.” Tanvi says. “Well and truly, you stole the show.”
“Thank you.” Aguacate smirks.
“I feel like unlike others, you do know who you are. My advice? Keep doing you.”
“I will.” Aguacate adds. “I can tell you that.”
“Finally, Crayola.”
“Hello dear.” Crayola smiles.
“You weren’t funny, baby.” Floss frowns.
“Oh.” Crayola looks surprised.
“As in- you know, I was expecting haha. But I got- oh, nah.” Floss laughs. “Like, damn, there was nothing fun- and I wanted to see you make me laugh!”
Crayola nods.
“For me, it came off- just like you were trying too hard, it wasn’t the smooth sailing we were looking for. And it just wasn't a very clever delivery, or very funny either. It was a shame.” Rachelle adds. “…And this gown doesn’t do you any favors- it looks frumpy.”
“I apologize.” Crayola responds.
“Racers, before we deliberate… I have a question to ask.”
Everyone looks at each other.
“Who should go home tonight and why? Starting with… Crayola.”
“I think this week I disappointed.” Crayola frowns. “And I do really enjoy this, but I am not delivering, and I will be truthful with that. I wasn’t the best, and I’m sorry.” Crayola says.
The others look surprised.
“Zazu.” Aguacate says. “Ms Boxx at least has two wins. This is what, her… 4th time in the bottom 3?” Aguacate laughs.
Zazu frowns.
“I do agree, Zazu.” Granny sighs. “Sadly, at this point, she is not delivering as consistently as the others.”
“For me, Crayola.” Omari says. “I see a fighter in Zazu. I do not see that in Crayola, as… clearly, neither does she.”
Aguacate giggles.
“I think, Crayola.” Zazu nods. “I’m sorry, but I will not say myself- I can never...”
Rachelle nods.
“For me, Crayola.” Jaslene responds. “At this point, she is not showcasing herself at her best.”
“Now, Zazu is clearly at the bottom.” Fiore purses her lips. “But if I’m being honest, at this point, Jaslene isn’t delivering anything new either, I don’t think.” Fiore nods. “Like you have said she has been, for a lack of a better term… flat-lining these past several episodes.”
Jaslene looks surprised, as well as Rachelle.
Jaslene Bangus: “What the fuck?”
“Let her fight for the bottom.” Fiore shrugs.
Jaslene rolls her eyes.
“I do agree with Zazu.” Yasmin nods. “Unfortunately.”
“Thank you, racers. Whilst we deliberate, you may untuck backstage in the Crystal Lounge, sponsored by Princess Papaya Tropical Drinks.”
The racers enter the platinum lounge.
Jaslene stomps in, grabbing a drink before turning to face Fiore.
“What the fuck?” Jaslene says.
Fiore raises an eyebrow. "What's the matter, Jaslene? Did I say something wrong?"
Jaslene clenches her fists, clearly pissed. "You think it's okay to throw me under the bus like that? Saying I should fight for the bottom? What the hell girl? I thought you were my sister?”
Fiore smirks, taking a sip of her drink. “Please, Jaslene. I was just stating m ytruth, what I have been seeing these past few weeks- If you can't handle a little critique, maybe you're not cut out for this competition. I feel as if you haven’t been delivering, and to me, you’re dead weight, right now."
Fiore Stravaganza: “Real talk, I said her name because simply put, at this point, I feel the AE girls have been holding me back. I need my brand focused on me.”
Jaslene's trembles. "You have no right to judge me, Fiore. You act like you're better than all of us, but you're just a mean-spirited queen hiding behind a pretty face."
“Darling, you came up with the name PRETTY GIRLS, I’m not just pretty, I’m gorgeous.” Fiore growls. “I was just being honest.”
“Honest?!” Jaselene rolls her eyes. “You’re acting nasty.”
Fiore's eyes narrow, her composure slipping for a moment. "Watch your words, Jaslene. I may be straightforward, but at least I'm not deluding myself like some queens here. I speak the truth, and if you can't handle it, that's your problem. Now go fix your hair."
Jaslene looks as if she is ready to scream, as Omari raises his hand in between them. “Let’s not.”
“I just..” Jaslene rolls her eyes. “Whatever.” Jaslene walks off.
“Beef.” Aguacate giggles.
“...Can I ask, what is going on Fiore?” Omari asks. “Like, there’s this switch..”
“There’s no switch.” Fiore responds quickly, looking at Omari. “I’ve always been competitive here, and clearly you haven’t been paying attention.”
Omari rolls his eyes. “Alright.”
“How is everyone else?” Granny asks.
“I am disappointed to be in the bottom again, but girl- I love to perform.” Zazu puts in an earphone. “So, I'm going to give my all.”
Zazu Nova: “A stage is where I shine. That- I am not scared of.” Zazu grins.
“For me, it’s-” Crayola sighs.
Crayola pauses, and looks down. "I don't know, guys. I'm just... I'm really struggling right now. I feel like I'm not good enough, like I don't belong here. And seeing myself disappoint week after week, it's really taking a toll on me."
“You won last week, girl.” Fiore adds.
Yasmin puts a hand on Crayola’s shoulder. "Hey, hey, none of that talk, okay? You are talented, Crayola, and you absolutely belong here. We all have our off weeks, but that doesn't define who we are as queens. You have so much more to offer, and I believe in you."
“I just wish you didn’t say your own name.” Omari says.
King Omari Star: “I would never say my own name. I will always fight. And Crayola… it is a strange response.”
Crayola looks up at Yasmin, tearing up. "Thank you, Yasmin. I'm just scared of going home, you know? I don't want to let myself down or let anyone else down."
Yasmin pulls Crayola into a warm hug. "I understand that fear, but remember, this is just a moment in our journey. It doesn't define our worth or our future. We've come so far, and we're all here to support each other. You are loved and valued, Crayola."
Granny smiles. “We're a family here, and we lift each other up. Don't let negative thoughts bring you down. Embrace your uniqueness and shine."
Granny Gorgeous: “I feel the same, though. This is… scary.”
Aguacate chimes in with a grin. "Exactly, mija! We all have our strengths and weaknesses, but together, we make this competition fierce. Keep your head high and remember why you're here."
“Vroom vroom.” Zazu winks.
Jaslene looks in the mirror, combing her hair before sitting next to Omari.
Jaslene Bangus: “Well, I guess that’s over.”
Fiore and Jaslene look at each other for a second.
Jaslene Bangus: “Full steam ahead.”
“Welcome back, racers. We’ve made some decisions.”

“Fiore, Jaslene, you’re safe.”
The two look at each other before walking separate sides of the stage.
“Omari. Yasmin. Great work. You’re safe.”
The two grin.
“Aguacate, this week you made us CACKLE. Condragulations, you are the winner of this week’s challenge.”
Aguacate jumps for joy. “WOOHOO”
Aguacate: “Another one.” Aguacate winks. “I I think I’m a frontrunner.”

“Granny, you’re safe.”
Granny bows.
“That means Zazu Nova and Crayola Boxx, I’m sorry my dears, but you are up for elimination.”
“The time has come… for you to lip sync to your life!”
**Conga by Gloria Estefan starts to play**
“Good luck… and don’t fuck it up!”
Zazu Nova: “I know this is my fourth time, but lip syncing is what I do. I’m never going down without a FIGHT!”
Crayola Boxx: “I’m giving my heart. That’s all I can do.”
Next Time!
Racers, it’s time to makeover your loved ones!
“My WIFE!” Omari yells, tearing up.
“Woah.” Aguacate stares awkwardly.
“I’m going to shit on these bitches.” Jaslene smirks.
“Oh, another bodysuit?” Fiore looks at Jaslene.
Fiore Stravaganza: “This is MY moment.”
