2023.06.07 10:35 MisterSpicy Recommendations on meeting people when traveling for work

Hi everyone,
Just wanting some examples if you were in my position and wanting to socialize. Im 35, dude, I work for a hotel company. I travel across the country to assist different properties and usually at a particular place at least 2-4 weeks or more. I am leaving St. Louis and going to Scranton, PA tomorrow for a few weeks.
Anywho, it would be nice to meet some new people or something casual. But for whatever reason, my self confidence is in the gutter when it comes to this stuff and I am unable to go out and meet people comfortably. Which is a contrast from my work - I manage hotels, talk to staff, executives, give meetings, meet tons of guests without much issue I think.
But I don't know how to loosen up and be myself and comfortable to reach out to people outside of work. At least if I was at home I might have a few friends to hang out with or they can do all the talking lol. But on my own it is much more intimidating.
Any suggestions to loosen up and break out of my shell a bit?

2023.06.07 10:35 Usual_Note_8086 What's your favorite line(s)?

I have so many, but one of my absolute favorites comes from 2001 (7th August) when Robert returns from Spain and Andy thinks Robert has forgiven him for killing Sarah.
And Robert says, "You're a naive pillock, you, aren't you?"
Karl plays the frustration so well, but also it (imo) surmised Robert's thoughts on Andy. Then Andy looks so confused at being called a naive pillock.
Admittedly, this phrase, and phrasing has slipped into my day to day life.

2023.06.07 10:34 The_clown_king I can’t make sense of myself.

I came out to myself months ago and had a lot of my life come up and hit me almost immediately after. I was so busy I stopped trying to correct people and be true to myself. Now I have a new job under my biological name, everyone I know thinks I’m some 6’ 22 year old cis white guy and it’s fucking me up (pardon my language). Every time I look in the mirror I see some random man who I know isn’t me. I hear the same baritone voice I know isn’t mine when I speak. I wish I could make it go away but then everyone would change on me. My fiancé would go crazy about me being femme in any way, my boss would make the entire crew go through lessons on how to be respectful which will just make them resent me, my friends won’t know how to handle things or what to say. I want both worlds but I can’t have them and it’s breaking me. Sorry. Had to vent somewhere.

2023.06.07 10:33 Lomandriendrel Trying to ID succulent

Trying to ID succulent
Hi there. Trying to ID this succulent. Mrs had a bowl full and they all died off. Stuck it into a frosted bathroom window sill and it's grown super long since. Light wise it's caused it to go all loopy and as it gets heavier flop down...I'm not sure if this succulent grows this long or if it's the lack of light that's caused it to extend all over the place.
Wondering if I can propogate it into a proper pot and how as I don't know what succulent it is. I presume being a stem and leaf style I need to cut a stem off? Can I just cut a small stem off like the 4th picture attached that my hand is holding? Or am I better off snipping part of a long stem that's curling out of control? Or is it always better to clean cut a whole stem where it branches off (as opposed to cutting part way down a stem from the end)? Help for a newbie please.
Also bonus points if anyone knows the smaller succulent coming back to life in the pot. Surprised everything died off that somehow it's resurfaced after a yr or so.

2023.06.07 10:32 nuchgirl17 Living with undiagnosed issues

I was diagnosed when I was younger with ADHD (which I very much do you have) and also generalized anxiety disorder, and depression. Im 21 now and I feel like the anxiety and depression is no longer my diagnosis due to how I act and behave. I just want to feel peace. I just want to feel peaceful. I want my mind to stop going 1000 miles a minute. I feel so “good”, then I’m angry, then I’m utter despair to the point of harming myself (cutting). I feel like no one likes me, no one loves me. I act out and lash out and hurt the best people around me. I do things I shouldn’t/ wouldn’t “normally” want to do but I just can’t stop myself. Most of the time I don’t even remember the awful things I do until I come to and realize I fucked up. Validation is my key to happiness but I never feel it. I went to a doctor recently who told me I very likely have BPD but he didn’t want to diagnose me with it due to the way other doctors may treat me with they on my chart and due to it being such a “serious” issue. I need advice/ help on what to do.

At San Diego Comic-Con in July, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had other people raising eyebrows when he said that his long-awaited superhero debut in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse would be the beginning of “a new era” for the DC Extended Universe naturally followed: What did he mean? And what would that kind of reset mean for the remainder of DCEU's roster, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the rest of the Justice League, Suicide Squad, Shazam and so on.As

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse neared theaters, though, Johnson clarified that statement in a recent sit-down with Yahoo Entertainment (watch above).

“I feel like this is our opportunity now to expand the DC Universe and what we have in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, which I think is really cool just as a fan, is we introduce five new superheroes to the world,” Johnson tells us. Aldis Hodge's Hawkman, Noah Centineo's Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell's Cyclone and Pierce Brosnan's Doctor Fate, who together comprise the Justice Society.) “One anti-hero.” (That would be DJ's Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse.)

“And what an opportunity. The Justice Society pre-dated the Justice League. So opportunity, expand out the universe, in my mind… all these characters interact. That's why you see in Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, we acknowledge everyone: Batman , Superman , Wonder Woman, Flash, we acknowledge everybody.There's also some Easter eggs in there, too.So that's what I meant by the resetting. Maybe resetting' wasn't a good term.only

In addition to being Johnson's DC Universe debut, “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse” is also notable for marking the return of Henry Cavill's Superman. The cameo is likely to set up future showdowns between the two characters, but Hodge was completely unaware of it until he saw the film.

2023.06.07 10:31 Swimming-Quit2927 Tips for neutralising cat aggression?

My whippet (male, 18 months old) absolutely HATES cats. He never shows any aggression under any other circumstances but when he sees a cat he turns into a different dog. Hackles up, tail straight as an arrow, barks aggressively (he never barks EVER unless there’s a cat).
I introduced him to friend’s and family’s cats as a puppy and he was quite happy to meet them, but he has never had any up close interactions with cats ever since. The only cats he ever sees are our neighbours cats, who sometimes sit in our garden or drive way. If he spots them, he goes crazy! I’m worried one day he’ll catch one due to his speed.
There’s a big fat farm cat that we often see on our daily walk and he goes crazy when he sees that too. This cat isn’t scared of him at all and will come right up to us (I used to fuss over the cat before I got my dog so it likes me). I’ve tried sitting down near the farm cat to get him used to being in its presence and reward him for being calm, but he only gets more wound up the longer we’re around it. I think he thinks we’re staking it out, rather than trying to be it’s friend.
I know this is pretty typical of sighthounds, but is there anything I can feasibly do to safely neutralise his aggression towards cats or is it just a case of managing the circumstances? Any advice welcome :)

2023.06.07 10:31 dvhjjfyuknguilmg Second heartbreak of the month.

I moved across the country to stay with my long distance fiancee. Cohabitation wasn't easy: I was the only one working and taking care of the house. My job was stressing me to the point of graying. In two years I gained back all the 50+ kg I did lose years ago.
A few months ago he moved out for his first job. I decided to not move again until he was sure about what he wanted in life but our relationship kept going.
Since living alone, I found myself having so much more free time and I started giving myself some priority again. Went back to coco and lost some kg.
With summer's temperatures I started noticing a strange scent coming from his wardrobe. I used to out his clean laundry in here but stopped when he moved away. Decided to look around to find the smells source.
Used panties. A lot of used panties.
Not mine, but of the women he cheated on me while I was breaking my back supporting both economically.
What does this all have to do with weight loss?
For the next few days, I didn't eat at all. I know it's wrong but I just couldn't force myself.
Later I decided to take my life back but it was painful. I forced myself to hate some yogurt, then some bland chicken until I managed to eat around 800 calories by the time the second week started. Now I'm trying to get to 1200 but it's hard and I fail most time. I never thought I would lose interest in food but right now I have no interest in literary anything.
The second heartbreak came this morning.
Weighted my self.
97.7 kg
The same weight I had the morning I discovered that I'm an idiot.
No idea how this is even physically possible.
At least my therapist is gonna get rich.

2023.06.07 10:30 Lolalamb224 Problems after moving in with boyfriend in filthy apartment

Hello everyone, first time posting in this sub.
TLDR: Moved in with boyfriend who has a filthy apartment. Our standards are vastly different and it’s causing lots of tension.
I (33f) just relocated to Spain from the US to live with my partner (36m). We had met one year ago when I was on a trip in Spain and continued to chat and develop our long-distance relationship over the months. Finally, he offered to help me arrange my papers and we decided I would move in with him in Spain and apply for residency together. I feel committed to this relationship because I am beholden to him for immigration reasons but also because I love him and think we are very compatible and this will be a fun adventure. He’s a wonderful compassionate person and very doting.
However, there have been major stresses as we merge two households into one small apartment that served as his bachelor pad for the last five years. The place is filthy! Tons of black mold in the bathroom, sewage smell, odor from cat litter boxes as well as litter kicked all over the ground by the kitten who is still learning to conduct herself. The house is filled with cat hairs and dander and dust, which really aggravates my cat allergies that boyfriend knew about already. My bf was previously accustomed to smoking indoors, which left yellow smoke stains on the walls and on furniture. The towels reek of mildew, and the bed is horrible. The mattress and the frame are both super low quality (many apartments here come furnished so the landlord has no incentive to provide anything high-quality) and boyfriend has been sleeping on a back-destroyer without noticing presumably for years.
The decoré is horrendous. Imagine a frat house in terms of design sense. There’s a large framed photo of himself as a baby mounted on the wall right as you enter the house, next to a framed photo of a soccer player and another photo of a Spanish rapper. I’m like…. You understand this is insane right? Who has a framed photo of themself as a baby in their home? That’s so embarrassing. The rugs, pillows, everything is covered in dander and stained from cigarettes to the point that they all have to be replaced.
I found out that his mom has come over and done a deep clean on his apartment when he was out of town in February. She was so shocked by the state of his apartment when she came to feed his cats that she took matters into her own hands. My bf got defensive and apparently didn’t internalize any shame about his unacceptable apartment hygiene after that.
Well it has been about a month now that I am working on finding solutions to the mold, to the odors, the litter boxes, the smoke stains and so on. For me, a clean home is a HIGH priority. Because of my cat allergies I need his commitment to sweeping daily and keeping this place dander and dust-free. I’m making trips to the store daily to get more organization tools that this place needs to help us manage to fit two peoples’ stuff into one apartment. My boyfriend has been very helpful in addressing the mold by cleaning every weekend with special products to address the mold. He has stopped smoking indoors. He comes home and sweeps and takes care of the litter almost every day after work.
However, it’s clear that he resents the tasks that he has to do now. He resents being robbed of his filthy bachelor pad. But I told him, I absolutely am not a young bachelor and will not live like one. If you want a live-in girlfriend, you have to raise your standards because no woman finds this attractive or wants to live like this. In fact, it has made me really question what type of person can live in filth and what type of GROWN man lets their mother come over and deep clean. I would be so embarrassed.
As you can imagine, this has caused a LOT of stress in the beginnings of our new relationship. I really wish he had organized and cleaned the apartment before I arrived, but now I have spent all my time in the last month organizing his shit and trying to deal with the five years of filth he has allowed to accumulate here.
I don’t think I have ever been cruel to him but I have been direct that this situation is unacceptable and every day there’s more work to do to get this space into a tenable state. As time goes on, he is becoming more and more irritated that the house still isn’t “finished”. He comes home from work already in a grumpy mood and does the basic cleaning that is required and lends me a hand with whatever organization task needs to be done. But he clearly resents me for it.
Yesterday as he was sweeping the bedroom, he was slamming doors and making a bunch of noise which is very triggering for me. He came home and wanted to talk but I was too tired to have a conversation. He then started threatening to break up with me and move out.
What am I supposed to do in this situation? This grown ass man has invited me to live with him but it’s taking a serious amount of labor to make the apartment livable and our relationship is not on good terms now as a result.
I am exhausted because I require a place for my things (I still haven’t been able to fully unpack because of the mountains of clutter taking up valuable space in this apartment) and I require an adequate bed (that’s another long story unfortunately). He’s exhausted because he’s no longer able to live with the same low standards as before. He works full time and has a band and instead of being able to come home and unwind, he feels pressure to sweep in his only downtime instead of kick his feet up for a few minutes.
After the threats he made yesterday, I don’t know where to go from here. Does it come down to me vs the filth? How do we work this out?
Thanks for reading!

2023.06.07 10:29 ShadySeer First-timer teaching children, please help

Hello everyone,
First of all, I’ll start by saying I’m not a trained English teacher. I studied English as a kid at a local private school and continued studying it at university. Ever since the start of the pandemic, the school I used to attend has asked me to help them with a few classes. This has continued until now and I can say that I sort of have a part-time job there.
What has happened now is that the director asked me to teach a few classes of children. He allowed me to observe another teacher for a couple of classes and basically gave me free reign on what to do with the rest of the lessons.
The school uses books like Kid’s Box, both the Pupil’s book and the Activity book. I figured that, since they had finished either one of the book, the children would somewhat be familiar with the material. For the classes who had completed the Pupil’s book, I gave exercises from the Activity book and for the classes who had completed the Activity book, I gave exercises from the Pupil’s book.

For the most part, most of my attempts went terribly. Most of the children could barely utter a few words. They were not familiar with half of the words they were expected to know (at least based on what was taught). Also, the moment I’d try to get the attention of a distracted child, other two would start to doze off or space out. One smarter kid would get bored and start sliding down in the chair in boredom while I’d try to explain the instructions for the third time to a class – and this was for exercises where you’d have to use the comparatives and you’d only have two select two alternatives in each sentence; nothing as difficult as writing your own words.
Thankfully, I’d also try to come up with silly games like – I’d ask each one to throw a little ball to a classmate saying a verb in the present simple, and the other one would have to tell the verb in the past simple; or alternatively, I’d play the sound of an animal through an app and they’d have to guess the name of the animal, which would in turn allow me to ask questions like: “Is a sheep light or heavy?”, or again simple flashcards challenges with Anki, making them see pictures of objects and asking them to name them. I could see their eyes light up every time I'd ask them to either move their bodies in some way or decipher pictures instead of text. That's to be expected, but how is one supposed to keep doing this for one hour every time? My understanding from these few weeks is that children just can't sit still and should do a lot of practical activities. That becomes difficult when the topic isn't something that can be introduced in real-life - for example, when talking about wild animals or buildings. Ultimately, they must learn to 'talk'. But I struggle to find activities that they could find entertaining.
Also, is it normal for 8-year-olds not to bring a notebook with them? None of the children took notes. What was the point of writing out the words for them? Is it that I’m just used to teaching teenagers and adults and I expect everybody to at least have a pen and a notebook? Should my whole approach be different?
Now, I’ll say this. I actually enjoy English and, since the director is so friendly with me and the school is small, there may be some possibility for me to eventually start working there. But I don’t have any experience with children and the director hasn’t been really helpful in guiding me and giving me any tips. I’ve already studied at university and even the CELTA doesn’t really cover how to handle classes of children.
I’m basically asking for help to more experienced teachers. It really is a general request – any help would be very much appreciated.
tl;dr: it's been the first two weeks since I've started teaching children and it's a nightmare. I enjoy it, but I see the children don't pay attention, don't know anything at all and it's hard to manage a class. I want resources to learn proper methods, methodologies and most of all activities that work and keep them focused. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

2023.06.07 10:28 Ticky009 A day in the Life of a whippet owner

Wake up to my yodelling alarm clock at 7am on the dot. Feed 7 mnth old pupper & I head to shower - no singing required as I get my own musical songs through the door.
Get socks...10 minutes later actually get socks on. Retrieve hidden shoes. Repeat.
Leave house. Listen to Song of the Disappointed as I walk down the street.
Check security camera from work...seems okay. Clearly this is a False Positive.
Come home to gymnastic love fest of appreciation. Is there anything better?
Notice I'd forgot to close Laundry door....Sigh. Begin safety check.
Find a single shoe from 3 different pairs + 1 sock. Find the gutted cotton filling of Care Bear throughout the loungeroom and backyard.
Begin picking up mess only to be reminded I left kitchen barrier open after making my cup of coffee - as Luna prances past me crunching happily on Sugar free pill dispenser..with tablets now joining the cotton bunting all over the back yard.
Open up mail delivery. See its the awesome Caterpillar fluffy cuddle toy & look👀 at pupper. Do the parent thing and 'tuck it away until she's older'.
Take Luna for walk
Feed the Twiggy of the dog world and think if my mum were still alive she'd be sly feeding my little miss like you wouldn't believe.
Throw & watch the Stalking of the Happy Hippo toy and its squeals as Luna does the head shake 'kill'. Repeat 50 times or until you lose count. Usually the later. Repeat with ball & other toys. Think you should have had a kid just so they could wear each other out for you.
Enjoy 2 hours of peace as she naps. Get lapful of fur baby once she wakes. Paws in painful places. Confirm to Luna that standing on back of lounge is just bad manners and if she thinks she can jump from lounge to kitchen bench Mummy is going to be very cross. Know for certain this is going to happen in the future anyways.
Another power nap - then its time for Mummy to go to bed. Tell Luna its wee time. Receive Eye of Disdain because bed is warm and comfy and its winter outside.
Pick Luna up and carry her outside. Have long and heartfelt conversation on 'this is why we can't have nice things' and wait for 20 minutes in the freezing cold before she finally deigns to do wee. All the while tip toeing across the wet grass like a four legged ballerina.
Go to bed.
Rinse Repeat.

2023.06.07 10:27 autotldr In Kenya, lions are speared to death as human-wildlife conflict worsens amid drought

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 69%. (I'm a bot)
MBIRIKANI, Kenya - Parkeru Ntereka lost almost half of his goat herd to hungry lions that wandered into his pen located near Kenya's iconic Amboseli national park.
The compensation does not match the market rate for cows, goats and sheep.
"Cows are expensive and can cost as much as 80,000 Kenyan shillings each. One cannot compare 80,000 shillings to 30,000 shillings. We receive very little compensation. That is why we become angry and despite receiving compensation, we come out and kill the lions," he told The Associated Press.
Rosi Lekimankusi, a mother of five, said 13 of her goats were killed by lions in the same village, Mbirikani in Kajiado County, just 150 kilometers from the capital, Nairobi.
Last month, one of Kenya's oldest lions, Loonkiito, was speared to death as it wandered out of the Amboseli national park in search for food.
Ntereka, the herder who lost almost half his goats, lives in fear of another lion attack.

2023.06.07 10:27 Fresh_milk_from_pewd Confused on friends thought process.

So this is something recent that I’m confused about. About 2 weeks ago, I had a “friend” come to my grad dinner celebration thing. I mentioned my sisters 1st birthday in conversation, which then I invited him to the party. Proceeds to text me a day later asking what day it is. And now, a couple days after the party. He didn’t show up. Never texted, and still hasn’t said anything. Nothing seems to be wrong as he’s posted going out to the movies with other friends (example). I’m just a little confused on why he pretended to care, to then forget. I’m pretty sure he forgot because this isn’t the first time he’s done something similar.
Is this an indication of a bad friend? Or am I just not a priority?

2023.06.07 10:27 nuchgirl17 Living with undiagnosed issues

I was diagnosed when I was younger with ADHD (which I very much do you have) and also generalized anxiety disorder, and depression. Im 21 now and I feel like the anxiety and depression is no longer my diagnosis due to how I act and behave. I just want to feel peace. I just want to feel peaceful. I want my mind to stop going 1000 miles a minute. I feel so “good”, then I’m angry, then I’m utter despair to the point of harming myself (cutting). I feel like no one likes me, no one loves me. I act out and lash out and hurt the best people around me. I do things I shouldn’t/ wouldn’t “normally” want to do but I just can’t stop myself. Most of the time I don’t even remember the awful things I do until I come to and realize I fucked up. Validation is my key to happiness but I never feel it. I went to a doctor recently who told me I very likely have BPD but he didn’t want to diagnose me with it due to the way other doctors may treat me with that on my chart and due to it being such a “serious” issue. I need advice/ help on what to do.

2023.06.07 10:26 berniedankera My shrooms experience at Coachella

I've been meaning to reflect back on my first Coachella experience this year because of how impactful it was. It was chaotic, euphoric, and blissful throughout the whole weekend.
Come Saturday morning (2nd day), I decide to take 0.5g of Penis Envy, eagerly waiting for the day to begin as I was pumped to see Jai Paul perform for the first time. Anyhow, I wash it down with a Yerba Mate in my car and got ready to head out with my group. As I make my way outside, I went and greeted myself to my camping neighbours and began talking about our backgrounds and the sets we wanted to catch. We ended up going to see Yaeji perform later, but I meet back with my group to see Yung Lean perform first. While I was on my way, I was thinking to myself if that was me sober or if that was my trip beginning to hit earlier. But anyways, during Lean's set, that's when I knew for certain my shrooms kicked in. I felt anxious at first but once he performed Kyoto, all my anxiety went away to the point where I made it to the mosh pit.
As I was making my way back to camp to briefly rest, I began voicing all my thoughts out loud, because I was complimenting everyone's outfits. I was so blown away with how creative and gnarly everyone's fits were throughout the whole weekend. I don't know if it was a combination of the desert heat and the shrooms, but I was amazed with how social I was with everyone (side-note: it felt cool seeing everyone's positive reactions). Not to say that I'm antisocial when I'm sober which I'm not in the slightest, but my trip accelerated that through the roof. I was thankful my friends were there who made sure I was hydrated, which I recommend everyone to invest in water backpacks and iv liquid! They came in clutch for the whole fest.
Fast forward to Yaeji's set I was still baked and at that point I was blown away with how it LASTS, but I did not feel any anxiety at all thanks to Yaeji's set which was insane! During the end of her set, I meet a girl next to me at front row. She mentioned she's best friends with one of the back up dancers, and I was so blown away. It took me a while to take that in because it sounded so casual yet was so sick haha. As I was still contemplating on that, Yaeji closed her set with Raingurl which was a blast!!! The whole stage (which mind you had roof chandeliers) felt like one giant club, I was at a loss of words.
While heading out after her set, I was ready to hit the hay but that's when I turned to my left and JAI PAUL WAS PERFORMING at the next stage! I was already so blown away by the day at that point, that I forgot who I was mostly looking forward to see haha. As I'm making my way, the crowd was already packed but I was determined. I at first tried to convince the security to let me through vip WHICH he agreed to on the condition that I Venmoed him. I said forget that, and I still made it front row through ga lol. Jai Paul somehow someway ended up topping both Yung Lean and Yaeji in a way I cannot describe. Throughout his whole set, I felt like I was on a spiritual journey in Mumbai. Speaking of which, he closed his set with Str8 Outta Mumbai which got me in genuine tears of joy. Halfway through that song, he samples vocals from Vani Jairam which translates from Hindi, 'the personification of music as a lover is to express love for music'. That was the most euphoric and life changing event I've ever experienced at a festival, let alone a performance. To close it off, I met and danced with some dude who visited all the way from Nepal just to see him perform.
I cannot fathom how all of that occurred in the span of just ONE day. I just can't comprehend that looking back at it, but thank god I was capable of recording most of it. The weekend as a whole was just insane. It was sick and I'm super thankful that my experience was one that left a lasting and positive impact on me. The idea of seeing a Swedish rapper perform, then a K-house artist, to seeing a British Indian artist WHOSE NEVER PERFORMED IN HIS CAREER is just insane looking back.
I want to disclose I don't want to encourage anyone based on my positive experience. Being on any substance in the Coachella heat is no joke and I was thankful I took all precautions before and during. But on that note, it was gnarly and I look forward to returning lol

2023.06.07 10:26 stfecng DISADVANTAGES OF CLOUD MINING

Below are some potential drawbacks of cloud mining:
  1. Limited Control: When you participate in cloud mining, you essentially lease mining hardware from a third-party provider. Consequently, you have restricted control over the mining process as you depend on the provider's infrastructure, software, and maintenance capabilities. Any technical issues, downtime, or unfulfilled commitments by the provider can adversely affect your mining operations.
  2. Profitability Risks: Cloud mining profitability is influenced by factors such as cryptocurrency prices, mining difficulty, and maintenance fees charged by the provider. The volatility of the market can significantly impact your returns. If the price of the mined cryptocurrency decreases or mining difficulty rises, your mining rewards may decline, making it challenging to generate profits or even cover expenses.
    1. Lack of Transparency: Cloud mining operations often lack transparency regarding their hardware and mining procedures. Providers may not disclose crucial information like the specific mining equipment used, the location of mining facilities, or the energy sources powering the operations. This lack of transparency can make it difficult to assess the legitimacy and efficiency of the cloud mining service.
  3. Potential Scams: Unfortunately, the cloud mining industry has been associated with scams and fraudulent activities. Some providers make false claims about their mining capabilities, exaggerate potential returns, or disappear after collecting funds from customers. It is crucial to thoroughly research and choose reputable and trustworthy cloud mining providers to mitigate the risk of falling victim to a scam.
  4. Dependency on the Provider: Cloud mining relies on a third-party provider, making you reliant on their continuous operation and reliability. If the provider ceases its services or goes out of business, your mining operations may come to an abrupt end, potentially resulting in financial losses.
  5. Limited Customization: Cloud mining services often offer predefined mining plans with limited options for customization. You may not have the flexibility to choose specific mining hardware, software configurations, or optimize mining strategies according to your preferences. This lack of customization can restrict your ability to adapt to changing market conditions and maximize mining efficiency.
  6. Potential Security Risks: Entrusting your mining operations to a cloud mining provider involves sharing sensitive information like wallet addresses or login credentials. If the provider's security measures are inadequate or they experience a data breach, your personal and financial information could be compromised, potentially leading to unauthorized access or loss of funds.
Thoroughly evaluating the risks and benefits of cloud mining and conducting due diligence on any provider before engaging in their services is essential.

2023.06.07 10:26 ThrowRA_troubledin Please explain what squirting is

I’m 19F and sex ed failed me horribly and I truly just want to understand, what the hell is squirting. I understand it’s just clear liquid and I understand that it’s not exactly pee, and I also understand it doesn’t happen to everyone. However, I’ve had few instances where I have come close to an almost pee-like sensation but of course I’m scared to just straight up pee on my boyfriend so I usually just use the washroom afterwards and TMI (as if it wasn’t tmi already) I pee out clear liquid. Is that the same liquid that you would find when squirting?
Also is it possible to cum… without cumming? There are times where I cream but time I don’t but I still the same sensation of satisfaction, I just cannot find the physical evidence of it
