2023.06.06 04:58 anthayashi KBL: Best among the unpopular poll summary (part 5)

Previous Posts: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4
So once a while we will have a favourite/best kbl post and it is always the same few show that are being mentioned. Recently someone posted the results for a survey conducted and the result are the same too. So in an attempt to be different, let's have a poll for "less popular" / "rarely mentioned" KBLs. Would be interesting to see how it goes.
The following popular shows will not be in the poll:
Where Your Eyes Linger, Color Rush (S1), To My Star (1&2), Light on Me, Semantic Error, Cherry Blossoms After Winter, Blueming, Roommates of Poongduck 304, Choco Milk Shake, Our Dating Sim, A Shoulder To Cry On, Unintentional Love Story, The Eighth Sense
Part 1: You Make Me Dance and Mr Heart are the clear winners among the six, 38.5% and 30.4% respectively. others are The Tasty Florida (9.8%), Wish You (9.1%), Nobleman Ryu's Wedding (7.6%) and Peach of Time (4.5%).
Part 2: Kissable Lips is the clear winner, taking 39.1% of the votes. the second place is half of the first place at 19% (first love, again). third is 15.2% (tinted with you). the rest are my sweet dear (10.2%), color rush s2 (8.5%) and behind cut (6.5%)
Part 3: This poll is more balanced, comments also mention how some of them did not even heard of these shows or dont like most of them. happy ending romance get first place at 26.8%, 2nd goes to Love class (25.6%), 3rd is once again (21.6%). the rest are oh! boarding house 17.4%, ocean likes me 7% and blue of winter 1.5%.
Part 4: The New Employee is clearly the winner at 59.1%. seems like it it too popular to be in the unpopular poll. the director who buys me dinner take 2nd at 20.1%. the rest are individual circumstances at 9%, all the liquors at 7.2% and oh! my assistant at 4.6%
There isnt enough shows for a part 5 yet, so for fun let's have a poll among the winners. did not include the new employee this time as it seems like it belong among the popular now so do not want it to dominate the poll. I put director who buys me dinner instead. was unsure if i should include kissable lips or not as it too also dominate the poll it is originally in, but i leave it in still.
As for the rest of the "unpopular shows", if you already like them, do continue to talk about them more often if there is a post suitable for it. for people who had not watched them yet, do give them one try at least.

2023.06.06 04:53 adamsark Tiefling Racial Template (Dungeon Fantasy Compliant)

TIEFLING 25 Points

Choice Professions: Bard, Demonologist, Wizard.
Marginal Professions: Cleric, Holy Warrior.
Throughout history, the copulation between demonic entities and mortals has been a common affair. Whether a contractual obligation of a Demonologist, the results of a succubus' or Incubus' feeding, or one of the uncountable sacrifices to summoned demons, these all result in a commonly recognized "race" of offspring called Tieflings.
The most common feature of Tieflings are their noticeable intellect, natural charisma, and innate magic. In nearly all forms of society, Tieflings are outcasts outside of their kin, as their infernal heritage makes it difficult for them to mingle with other types of mortals. Because of the variety of demonic entities that can spawn Tieflings, the physical traits of Tieflings are quite amorphous, though they trend towards having some form of horns, elf-like ears, red-hued skin, black sclera, a tail of some type, and digitigrade feet. Height-wise, they're the same size as Humans in general, but their elevated feet grant them an extra two inches of height when standing.
Tieflings have the same power-ups as Infernals, but may also gain more Demonic Features instead.
Attribute Modifiers: IQ +1 [20].
Secondary Characteristics Modifiers: Per -1 [-5]; Wil -1 [-5].
Advantages: 13 points spent on Demonic Features; Charisma I [5]; Magery [5].
Perks: Brotherhood of Demons [1]; Racial Gifts (Tiefling Demonic Features) [1].
Features: Digitigrade Posture; Non-Prehensile Tail; Nubbin Horns; Sunburn-Resistant Skin. Head, Foot and Leg Armor and Clothing is (usually) incompatible with other humanoid beings.
Disadvantages: Social Stigma (Minority Group, {-10}) [-10]. Optionally, you may take additional disadvantages to gain extra points to spend on Demonic Features. This includes Can Be Turned By True Faith [-1], Damned [-1], Distinctive Features (Unnatural Hair, Skin, and Eye Color) [-1], Name-Bound [-1], Divine Curse (Holy Water counts as Acid) [-5], Unusual Biochemistry [-5], Dread (Occasional (Holy Areas & Paraphernalia), x1; Cannot Be Trapped, -50%) [-5 to -10]; Weakness (Occasional (Holy), {-10}; Doubled Damage, x2) [-20].
*Brotherhood of Demons: Demonic entities consider Tieflings as beings that won't interfere in their affairs. So long as the Tiefling in question isn't taking hostile or aggressive actions towards a Demon, the demon will ignore them and focus on any other mortals beforehand. In rare instances that a Tiefling interacts with a Demon, they may do so without immediate hostility from the Demon.

Demonic Features are as followed:
Head: Damage Resistance 1 to 3 (Limited (Skull), -70%) [1.5 per level]; Striker (Horns: Crushing, {5} or Impaling, {8}), which may include Weak, -50%, [3 to 8]; Teeth (Sharp, {1}) [1]; Infravision [10]; Parabolic Hearing 1 [4]; Acute Hearing 1 or 2 [2 or 4]; Night Vision 1 to 5 [1/Lv.]; Extra Arm (Tongue: Extra-Flexible, +50%; Short, -50%; and Weak (1/2 or 1/4 ST), -25% or -50%) [5 or 8].
Tail: Striker (Tail: Crushing, {5}, Cutting, {7}, or Impaling, {8}; Reversed Arc, +0%), which may include Weak, -50%, [3 to 8]; Extra Arm (Tail: Extra-Flexible, +50%) with any combination of Long I, +100%, Weak (1/2 or 1/4 ST), -25% or -50%, No Fine Manipulation, -30%, No Physical Attack, -50%, and Short, -50% [2 to 25].
Hands and Feet: Claws (Hooves, {3} or Sharp, {5}) [3 or 5]
Skin: Damage Resistance 1 to 3 (Limited (Burning), -20%) [4/Lv.]; Damage Resistance 1 or 2 (Tough Skin, -40%) [3 or 6]; Temperature Tolerance 1 to 3 (Heat) [1/Lv.].
Unusual Features: Universal Digestion [5]; Less Sleep 1 to 4 [2/Lv.]; Reduced Consumption 1 to 4 (Optionally, Cast-Iron Stomach, -50%) [1/Lv. or 2/Lv.]; up to 3 Infernal Charms (Darkness, Fireball, Etc.) [1/Lv.].

2023.06.06 04:43 PeensMagicalBeans Please Double Check if You, Your Parents, and Grandparents are signed up for Fair Pharmacare

My heart sank today at the pharmacy when I saw someone decline to pick up all of their prescriptions because they were out of this person's budget. For their privacy, I didn't approach them to tell them about Fair Pharmacare, but I hope this information will spread. Even if you are 13 years old, ask your parents about this. If they aren't registered, I am sure that they will be grateful for you bringing it up. Please also bring your laptop to your grandparent's place and help them with this, along with any immigrant family you know.
Note: I don't work for the government. I can't guarantee everything I say is accurate, but I can confidently say for the most part it is.
What is Fair Pharmacare: Fair PharmaCare helps B.C. families/individuals pay for many prescription drugs, dispensing fees and some medical devices and supplies. The plan is based on income. The less you earn, the lower your deductible (you might not have one). Everyone should register even if they make $1M/year.
I have benefits through work/school so why do I need this?: Many benefit plans will deny coverage if you have not registered for Fair Pharmacare. Benefit plans do not want to pay for something when the government could be paying for it. They may cover something at lower costs, but when you get into $10,000+ drugs, they will likely be auditing to see if you are registered. Also, what if you lose your job? You may as well register.
If I am here on a work permit or student visa do I qualify?: Yes. You might not be able to register online. Call 604-683-7151. You will likely need to manually complete some forms.
I think that I am already registered. Where do I confirm?: You can confirm via this link. A lot of people assume that because they have MSP, they are registered, but they are not. It is not automatic.
Where do I register?: Unless you are here on a work permit, student permit, or haven't filed your 2022 and 2021 taxes, you can register here.
What information do I need to register?: Your MSP number and information from your CRA notice of assessment.
Why aren't all British Columbians automatically registered for Fair Pharmacare?: My educated guess based on consent and experience is that the Provincial government does not have automatic consent to access information about your income from the Federal government. You need to provide that consent.
Do I need to register every year?: No. The Provincial government will automatically access your information from the Feds and update your deductible amount. There are some situations that you will need to re-register, like moving out of Province and coming back, but I'm not getting into that today.
I lost my job. Can I have my Fair Pharmacare deductible adjusted?: Yes. If your income went down by more than 10% of your net income from two years ago, you can apply for an income review. Visit this page for more information.
What if I can't afford my deductible and need my medication?: You can have your deductible spread out over the year so you are not paying it out all at once. There is some information here, but contact Fair Pharmacare for more information.
What prescriptions are covered?: You can see what prescriptions are covered by searching the BC Pharmacare Formulary. You can ask your doctor to prescribe something that is covered. Click on the hyperlinked DIN number for actual information. Some medications require special authority or are only covered under certain plans (eg. Plan G for patients receiving psychiatric care - don't ask me about this because I know nothing). Here is a general list of the supplies that Fair Pharmacare covers.
What is Special Authority?: Special Authority is full or partial coverage that requires a special circumstance. Your doctor needs to fill out a Special Authority Form to get coverage. For some drugs, all that is required is a diagnosis (eg. a diagnosis of Acne for Retin-A) or it requires you having tried one of the drugs that are already covered and it didn't work for you (eg. trying Dexadrine before getting Vyvanse covered for ADHD).
How long does it take Special Authority to be processed?: It can take up to business days for a Special Authority request to be processed. Some are done faster. You can login to BC Health Gatweway and filter by Special Authority to see if it is approved. I think that you need to register for the BC Services Card App to login to the health gateway.
How many days can be dispensed at a time on Fair Pharmacare?: This varies and you should be very mindful of this. Always ask your pharmacist about this because I have been out of pocket $200 when I wanted 90 days for convenience but one prescription would only be covered for 30 days at a time.
My prescription is not covered through Fair Pharmacare. What can I do about this?: BC has a drug review process%20or%20a%20non%2Dbenefit). Check to see if it has been approved by Health Canada and reviewed by CADTH. Take a look at what their reports said about the drug. If your drug was recommended for approval but BC still does not cover it, [e-mail the Ministry of Health](mailto:[email protected]). Maybe even the Minister of Health and your local MLA. Some years ago, I noticed that BC covered a drug for people under the age of 18, but no longer for those 18+. I e-mailed the government pointing out the reports, stating that it didn't make sense because the condition doesn't magically go away when the person turns 18, and guess what - they changed the policy a couple of months later.
The BC Government does regularly solicit feedback on drug coverage. I get an e-mail periodically with a list of medications that they will be soliciting feedback for, but I can't even remember how or where I signed up for it. You can subscribe for updates to this public page which I imagine does the same thing as the e-mail I receive does.
What else can I do to make a difference?: I am not sure which is the correct body (BC Pharmacy Association, BC College of Pharmacists, BC Government), but personally I would like a campaign that has a sticker, cards, or something at every pharmacy in BC that shares information about Fair Pharmacare. If someone is being rung up and Pharmacare isn't listed on their receipt, the cashier is required to tell them about it. Perhaps government employees or Pharmacists can comment and let us know which body would be in charge of making this happen.
Hopefully this information helps. We are very lucky in BC that we have this program that applies to all British Columbians instead of just seniors and children. This can save you a huge amount of money. I often hear people complaining about the cost of Vyvanse and they have no clue that they can get it covered through Fair Pharmacare's Special Authority program. I hope this helps you or someone that you know.
If you really want to give back to your community, stop making peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and handing them out at Main/Hastings. Consider visiting a senior or hosting something in your condo's amenity room that walks people through the registration process. This will make a difference in a meaningful way.

2023.06.06 04:41 samsixseven Lots of confusion and newly diagnosed

I'm sorry if this is too long of a post. Im 20f and just diagnosed with Graves Disease about a month ago. I found out I was hyper after having to go to the er with crazy high heart rate, confusion, and tremors. My endo diagnosed me with graves two weeks later but didn't give me any info about the disease or what to expect going forward and put me on methimazole which I was allergic to. Im now on PTU and propranolol and im pretty anxious about it. I got very sick as a child so i've always had pretty severe health anxiety and the idea of being on a medication that can damage my kidneys and liver for a year (at least) is kind of a nightmare for me. I haven't read anything about anyone actually experiencing permanent remission after antithyroid drugs so I was initially thinking of avoiding experiencing relapse and the cardiac symptoms to go with it and having rai. My endo basically said rai would be a mistake because women my age are concerned about fertility, (something I don't care much about) and said surgery was the better idea. I wanted to avoid surgery because I was hoping to actually get back into theater and singing after mental health issues kept me from living a life and she seemed to think that sounded irrational. I'm really just desperate for information because everything I'm reading contradicts what I read before and I'm afraid of vocal cord damage with surgery (or just not waking up) and the hormone fluctuations from residual thyroid tissue or no results with the rai. My endo also keeps giving me info I'm not sure is true, (like antithyroid drug remission being 70%) and i'm having trouble just going with whatever she says now. any thoughts or advice are much appreciated.

2023.06.06 04:39 anewatom AITA Walking Away Because of one Comment

To set the the scene, the person I’m in relations with is twice my age. As a result there’s always been some power imbalance and dynamics which most people frown upon. This person let’s call him J it’s mostly aware of this, and usually does his best to not “advantage” but lately he’s been invested into his business heavily. Our relationship is totally secretive which I think favors him for he’s a public figure, ongoing 10 years. I’ve been living out my car for the past few months let’s call it daddy issues, scraping by, helping him with his business so he doesn’t need to hire someone to be there, studying, and working part time. Just of late I finally had the time to do an overdue oil change and the mechanics alerted me if a strange noise probably the motor mounts or engine. I haven’t got to look at it, mostly due to financial reasons. After a back to back double shift I’m driving home and the car begins vibrating and battery lights cut in and out. I know I’m about to be stranded. I text him and he comes, telling me to take his car and go sleep while he waits for a tow. At this point I’m like, he’s very understanding, I would’ve just slept in my car until traffic cleared up then decided what to do. When see him back he makes the comment “cars don’t just break down like that, you didn’t take care if it”. Maybe it was the accusatory nature but all rationale left my mind and I walked out. Like how, when I’m stuck running your business, going to school, and working where do I find the time? Not to mention I’m fucking broke and you don’t pay me

2023.06.06 04:37 jinglepringlepooh Should I Be Worried?

A little bit of context before I get to the specific situation; I am a 22 F and have a few physical issues (as well as mental, but thats irrelevant to this imo). Here is the list of the ones that have been officially diagnosed in the last 8 years or so.
A few months ago, I got to see a new rheumatologist to get a diagnosis for EDS (or to get to the bottom as to why I dislocate all the time) and he was fantastic! Took my pain and concerns seriously. Took 18 vials of blood and did countless tests on them.
A month later I see him again, turns out I have a ton of antibodies where they think I have RA and PA and possibly Sarcoidosis. However, we got on the topic of back pain and he recommended I get an x ray and a MRI to see if the PA is fusing my vertebrae. Okay cool whatever let's just see if I can feel better.
I had a follow up apt set up for the 12th of June, as my MRI was on the 1st of June. I got a call today (5th of June) asking if I could move up my appointment to tomorrow because the doctor saw my testing results. The nurse seemed a bit... empathetic while on the phone as if she seemed sorry? They also fit me in at (what I would consider) an odd time aka 3:50pm.
I can't help but think it's something really bad? My genetics aren't the best but I have no clue what it could be. Should I be worried? I have been kind of worried about it since they called. I asked my mother (whom has a lot of health issues as well) and she went silent when I told her.
I will keep yall updated but I really didn't feel like I could go into how worried I was with my irl friends and I needed to kind of get some other input or something. I don't know. I know whatever it is I'll live with it and have to figure out a plan so worrying before I see him won't do anything- but the bumping it up a week and the nurses tone is telling me the appt tomorrow is not going to be pleasant.

2023.06.06 04:32 BananaAdditional3337 Deciding to go no-contact with my parents [TW: All of the Above]

(I'm new to Reddit/this subreddit, so thank you for your patience!)
I just finished my first year at college, and coming back to my childhood home has triggered intense rage, depression, and anxiety. I believe my mother has many narcisisstic traits and was verbally and physically abusive. As context, here is a summary of her behaviomentality:
There is a lot that bothers me about her, but I think the overwhelming reason why I want to cut her out of my life is I believe she is incapable of any empathy, growth, or love. I think the single most damaging moments in my childhood were when she laughed at me when I cried/screamed at her. The distress, destructive anger, and depression she caused made her visibly gleeful. She smiles when I cry and has done so for 19 years. I do not want to allow her to make it to 20.
Recently, I sat both of my parents down and explained what I've been feeling for the past 19 years. I gave my mother an ultimatum: Change, or I will never speak to you again, and you will never have the privilege of meeting your grandchildren. I told her she is not the kind of person who I want around my children, and the best thing I could do as a mother is to ensure my children never feel a day of the terror, depression, nonsensical rage, and agony I endured. Her reaction has convinced me that I need to follow through on my ultimatum.
Her reaction has been to gaslight, manipulate, diminish, and lie. She laughed at me during the initial confrontation. It has been weeks since I poured out my heart to my parents. She has tried to use my recent ADHD diagnosis against me, essentially telling my father I need to be medicated. She didn't tell him I was diagnosed with ADHD, just that I was crazy and delusional. It has been weeks, and she has not attempted to apologize at all. She has not tried to make amends. She mostly just either ignores me or nags me about stupid, irrelevant things.
My father sat me down and asked me to calm down and think things through before cutting them off. He recognized she is manipulative, abusive, etc. He mentioned my mother has been crying a lot, which quite frankly, I do not care about. I cried for 19 years and no one gave a shit. While it is validating he agrees she is abusive, I am disgusted that he never tried to defend me, comfort me, or change her treatment of me. He is also incredibly absent. I have never had a real conversation with him. He never showed up to support me, inside and out of the house—no ballet recitals, no violin competitions, no awards ceremonies, etc. He is unmistakably emotionally neglectful, physically abusive, and emotionally abusive.
In the fallout from my conversation with my parents, I have engaged in some painful introspection. I think I have become fundamentally a worse, angrier, and meaner person as a result of the narcissistic abuse I experienced (to be clear, I do not have NPD). I think I have some pronounced narcisisstic traits and have spent a lot of time worrying about the negative impact I've had on others. I've hurt a lot of people, and I want to be a better, healthier, kinder person.
The abuse I experienced got the best of me for years, and as an adult, I'm taking responsibility and growing. I'm reading self-help books, in therapy, and am trying to make amends. However, I view my parents as a major impediment to my becoming a better person. I cannot heal and grow if I am constantly subject to their warped reality and hostility. I seriously believe I need to cut them off in order to have a shot at being a good person, even if it means going through financial instability, being homeless, etc. I don't care what hardship I have to overcome if it means I'll be free of their abuse.
I am trying to map out what this estrangement will look like. I don't know how to tackle this problem at all. I'm 19 and have no idea what the future will look like for me. I am terrified. Please give me guidance on the following:
1) Should I even cut them off? Am I being rational/mentally healthy/responsible in this decision?
2) What are some tips for a 19-year-old college student cutting off their parents?
3) Should I maintain some form of limited contact with my father in case they need to contact me?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I'm sorry for the long post, but thank you for reading. I want to emphasize I don't think either of my parents are evil. My mother lost her mother when she was 14, and my father lost his father when he was in his late teens/early twenties. My parents fundamentally should never have had children, and I just want to make sure I don't repeat their mistakes.

2023.06.06 04:29 History-Afficionado House Peake - Part 3

House Peake - Part 3
Continuation of my Peake roleplay campaign, trying to seize back the lost holdings and maybe help the Blackfyres (Bozos died out even thoug hi tried everything to save them).
Shortly after, Lord Gareth of Starpike passed away due to cancer, leaving the inheritance of Starpike to his heir apparent, Lord Gerold "The Drunkard." However, Gerold's life was cut short by his excessive drinking, creating a succession crisis. The mantle of Lordship then fell upon Gerold's shrewd son, Bertram, who showed great promise. Unfortunately, before Gareth could see his booties hang, Bertram succumbed to complications from gout, acquired through prolonged feasting in Holyhall.

As a result, Starpike passed to Morgil, Gareth's second grandson. Morgil, a homosexual man afflicted with gout and obesity, managed to stabilize and grow Starpike despite his personal flaws. He excelled as a kind and brilliant diplomat, forging alliances with powerful houses such as the Risleys, Hightowers, and Rosbys. The alliance with House Rosby would be his greatest achievement. However, as his death drew near, he had to make the unfortunate decision to disinherit his firstborn son, Bernard Peake, who was deemed a lunatic and had inherited The Deepwood in the North through a convoluted succession.
Instead, Morgil's second son, Gedmund Peake, a glorious and formidable fighter known for his bravery, patience, and command skills, was designated as the heir. Gedmund was beloved by the smallfolk and esteemed by his colleagues. His prowess as a duelist in the Reach was nearly unmatched. However, with the growing desperation of the Night's Watch, Gedmund made the request for his father to take the Black. Consequently, the responsibility of inheriting Starpike fell upon Manfryd Peake, the third-born son, who was married to Patrice Rosby.
Manfryd Peake, The Most Ambitious Peake in recent memory.
Meanwhile, after spending 20 years imprisoned by a minor baron during a revolt, Amaury "The Luring" Peake, the brother of Gareth and inheritor of Starfall (as the Daynes had relocated their court to Sunspear following the deaths of the Martells and some usurpation by the Dalts and Santagars), managed to have children. His eldest son, Beric "The Bastard of The Elbow," later ascended to the position of Lord Commander of the Kingsguard, marking the second time a member of House Peake held the highest position in the order. Perhaps it was worth considering incorporating white shields into their crests, reminiscent of the Darklyns' sigil.

2023.06.06 04:22 That_Permission5911 The "Boy" Scouts (and the Feminist takeover of it, it being somehow an "evil" and "misogynistic" institution) [RANT]

I'll jump right in and start from the beginning, but I think you already know where this is headed...

So, I grew up in Kansas, and although the state government grew increasingly republican, the county I lived in was all liberal democratic. At one time I was in the boy scouts. This was early 2010s or so. I personally never went far in it because it was hosted at a church that was far away, I was very socially awkward and never liked social interactions in general, and it was a cub scout group that did primarily boring things like tying the same knots over and over and also listening to hour long presentations about fire safety or whatever. I never really got to go outside but was there for the free food. I believe I was in second grade or maybe third grade, and only even got to go to like 10 meetings or so. My dad took drove me to them and after he left, for military service overseas, my mother just quit paying for it, and never approved of it anyway. She didn't like me hanging out with him.

In fifth grade I moved to another state, where I currently reside, where the government is completely liberal and democratic. The main motivation for the move, I was told, was my mother hated the Kansas Republicans cutting off educational programs and welfare benefits. But I believe the real reason was to keep me away from my father. He was in the same state after returning from service in both Afghanistan and Iraq, and by the time we moved into this state, he had already been assigned away. Fortunately, the reassignment was stonewalled by many completely unpredictable things. This was the year that NATO ISAF became NATO RSM, and OFS became OEF. I believe the changes were initiated by CJTF OIR, after pretending to be successful with UN SCR 2254, which was written as a response to a rising conflict in Syria that resulted from, among other things, al-Qaeda splitting from Daish. Remember that the CJTF is a mechanism for NATO to create operations and carry them out with non-NATO forces. NATO RSM led the effort in OEF, which is a counterterrorism campaign targeted against Daish. None of that matters anymore because a year or two ago, all NATO forces were withdrawn by the Doha agreement.

I suspect the non-NATO forces will be flocking to Syria in the coming months but honestly, I've never been able to keep track of what they've been up to. My mother said my father was away overseas constantly, in Germany, Israel, or someplace random, but I learned that none of it was true. He was at home, and she spun misinformation using the narcissistic technique of hounding him for information over the phone, making him guess about an unpredictable future, and then deliberately ignoring updates whenever a decision was actually made. He was in Hawaii on a cruise ship when I thought he was in Tehran.

The way women manipulate people like my mother did to me here is important for the story on this post. So, keep that in the back of your mind for now.

So as a kid I remember the giant fuss that feminists made over the boy scouts. They said that girls should be allowed to join, and the program should be renamed to just "the scouts". There where little carboard signs everywhere with this bullshit on them, as well as the effort being reported in the local news.

The girl scouts, apparently, is not as fun as the boy scouts. I suppose they don't go outside, go camping, or go on field trips. Instead, they sit around in a classroom and learn cooking and cleaning or whatever. I don't know, I was never a girl scout. It was the fact that boys have so much more fun that was considered misogynistic by the feminists.

So, in many troops now, girls can join. In the cub scouts that I was in, there weren't any girls, as far as I can remember, but the counselors themselves where girls, which I think was unusual, given that men usually do that.

I don't understand why the girl scouts can't just restructure their own program. Allow the girls to have the same fun stuff. There's no reason why they can't do that and stay completely on their own.

Of course, the girl scouts are run by women. These women are in charge and made it lame. They design the whole program, run the whole show, and believe that somehow, their failure is the fault of men and boys.

But it's not our fault. The fault is literally the women with the full power and responsibility over their own schedules. They could easily make any renovations to the girl scouts that they want.

Boys just know how to have more fun. We know how to get along and we're not afraid of actual life, and the great outdoors. But then the women want to infiltrate our group. And change it completely. My cub scouts experience was pretty lame, because these liberal women removed anything that was actually fun. They ruin the girl scouts and now want the same for the boy scouts.

We are not misogynist because we live our lives freely and have more fun. I think we never should have let the girls in, they are so miserable and whiny. The amount of narcissism they have is so insane and crazy to me. They have no right to barge in and change things according to a political agenda. What needs to be done is some self-introspection as to restructure the girl scouts. If they want to stop selling cookies and go camping or swimming or hunting or whatever, then why not let them do it? Why do they have to come over to the other side? We did not design the girl scouts. Women designed the girl scouts. Women ruined it and blamed all the men of the world as if we somehow had any control over what they do. I will not be made to believe that I have any responsibility at all for the fact that the women counselors ruined girl scouts all by themselves.

Also, women should not be in the military. I'm sorry, but it comes down to the biological fact that they are not naturally gifted in the areas that a good solider requires. Number one being the oath of honesty that the military enforces. If my father ever behaved like my mother, straight up lying about his location or his credentials, he would be court-martialed immediately.

Now that I think of it, isn't it strange that feminists have an obsession with tearing down any institution that stands for honor? As if men are not allowed to be honorable? Just a final thought...

2023.06.06 04:08 Individual_Method436 Post Menopausal Hysterectomy due to endometrial cancer

I am 59 and had been experiencing some post menopausal bleeding. Went in for an endometrial biopsy and a D&C, and results came back endometrial carcinoma FIGO 1. Am going from that procedure on 5/19 to a complete hysterectomy (uterus, tubes, ovaries, cervix) on 6/15 and my head is spinning a bit. The surgeon is planning on using the DaVinci system to perform the surgery in the minimally invasive way. But because I am fat (yes, I own it - haha), she did warn that if my lungs have a problem with the inverted position, they may need to do a vertical incision from above my belly button to my pubic bone. I am really worried about the recovery from either. I've been reading along on this sub, and it seems like many of you are younger than I am, and I haven't read about many having to do this due to cancer (or maybe I just haven't read enough.) I don't even know what I am asking here, except that I am scared and worried. :-( Maybe I am just looking for some good advice pre and post operatively and maybe from someone older and/or out of shape and how you handled the surgery and recovery. The cancer part is not even registering, except that they told me it is low level, and caught early, and should have a full cure with the hysterectomy. I have to hope it works out that way. I have had major surgeries before - I had a spinal cord tumor that took two operations to remove, leading to a 6 level spinal fusion, a CSF leak, a staph infection - my back was opened 4 times in all - I joked they should have just put in a zipper! :-) But that was 7 years ago - when I was 7 years younger. I had so many complications from that, so I am worried if the same thing happens again. And I am a teacher, so I need to be able to work again when late August comes around. Will I be ready by then? So much to worry about! Sorry to go on so long - hoping for some comforting words and wise advice. Thanks to you all.

2023.06.06 04:01 HomesteadWife85 Gestational Diabetes?

I'm 30 weeks pregnant. My midwife gave me the option to do the 1 hr glucose tolerance test. My only risk factor is that I'm over 25. I'm 37 years old, healthy pre-pregnancy weight and maintained a healthy pregnancy weight so far. I was weight lifting 4 days a week before pregnancy. The cut off for the test results is 140. My results came back 152. She had me eat breakfast, then fast for 4 hrs, drink the orange drink, and then she took my blood an hour later. She's recommending I change my diet... Cut out sugars (we started a Mediterranean gut healthy diet a couple weeks ago) and greasy fried foods (don't really eat those anyway)... She also recommended exercise which I'm doing. Daily 30 min walk. I have no symptoms of diabetes. How seriously would you take this result? Did any of you fail the 1 hr test and then go on to pass the longer one? From my understanding, they don't diagnose gestational diabetes from the one hour test. Any input appreciated!

2023.06.06 03:56 Sad_Dog956 Tips for doing a sustainable cut. Also, how do I know I am gaining muscle, not fat?

Hi, 21F, 5’3”. I started a body recomp journey in April with my goal of getting from 135 lbs to 110 lbs by the fall.
Since then it has been a nightmare, I have gained 13 lbs as of today within 1.5 months.
When I first lost weight around 2 years ago, I went from an XL to an S in about 2-3 months accidentally and I believe I was on a 1000 to 1200 deficit if I could give a rough estimate since I was definitely not tracking and just eating on the go. I found that unsustainable and I have been trying to fix my diet since then.
I started strength training and cardio and have been trying to eat anywhere from 1500 to 1700 calories. But since I have started I have gained weight and gone from a size M up to L to XL. It’s becoming unmanageable to have this extra fluff in daily life.
I have gone on a run and felt people staring at me and laughing at me. Adult women older than me have seen me and fussed with their shirts to hide their stomachs since mine has gotten so disproportionately big as a lot of fat is stored in my stomach.
I don’t mean to really rag on anyone here at my current weight. I’m just not at the physique I want to be at and want to get back to being leaner. I have tried to do a cut to 1200 which failed. And then a cut to 1500 according to my dietitian, which I am currently failing since I tend to eat at around 1800 which is around 100 calories under maintenance for me.
I struggle to fit in 12k steps since it takes around 2-3 hours for me to walk and/or run that much and I don’t have that free time. I tried to do strength training with the CG Iron series and I am seeing results but I am worried that I am not really gaining muscle so much as just more and more fat instead.
Some things that I suspect could be causing issues: - my meals used to be around 200 calories per meal which was too small for me and caused overeating at the end of the day - I struggle to drink 8-10 cups of water per day - idk how to fit steps in as a person taking extra classes and doing sedentary work on top of it - I started lifting a little heavier and added cardio on top of strength training - I added mixed nuts and carbs to my diet to fix satiety issues -I struggle to get enough protein in (~120 g) without maxing my calories and have mainly relied on tofu and protein powder as low cal options
I can’t keep spending money on new clothes just to keep up. Any tips on what am I doing wrong and how to do a sustainable cut?

2023.06.06 03:56 Haunting_Win_1072 Is this thrips?

Is this thrips?
I just bought this monstera cutting and am naturally being anal about the plants I bring into my home (this one is currently in quarantine). I did clean off the leaves before taking pictures without thinking but im worried the plant has thrips. Small white thing on the top of the leaf in picture 1, possible damage picture 2, and another possible thrip picture 3. I haven’t ever encountered them though so I have no clue if im over reacting or if this plant is bringing the plague to my house? I have not seen any thing other than those white specs, like no dark colored moving thrips.

2023.06.06 03:55 carlosblue_14 The Amalgam: Chapter 4(Part 1)

N was flying while carrying Uzi and Doll with him follow V in the distance.

N: V, wait for us.

She didn't seem to pay attention to them and kept moving forward.

Uzi: What the hell is wrong with you 2? When my dad said that Thad was heading to the dead body area, you guys just, what was that all about?
N: Me, we… it's complicated.
Uzi: Don't tell me it's complicated! You're going to tell me everything you know about that thing NOW.

N hesitated for a few seconds, but Uzi looked at him annoyed, clearly not willing to listen to an excuse, to which she had to give up.

N: It's okay, but, you should know that I don't have all the details, it was V and J who knew the most about this, I… she just followed her orders.
Uzi: Fine, fine, but start talking already.
N: Okay… tell me, how much do you know about us when we got here?
Uzi: Outside of the fact that they came here killing everyone?
N: Well... let's say it wasn't that way, oh at least not as they told you.
Uzi: What do you mean?

In retrospect
A ship arrives and lands on Copper-9, some drones came out of it, but they weren't teardown drones, as they were wearing JCJenson uniforms.

N: When the core incident happened, they first sent an investigation team to find out what happened.

The group of “investigative drones” walked around the site examining the bodies of other wrecked drones on the ground.

Drone Researcher 1: Commando, you guys get to see this, it's a fucking massacre.

Suddenly a metallic noise is heard coming from a mound of bodies piled to one side. The drones look at each other suspiciously and approach cautiously. While one of them speaks.

Drone Investigator 2: Who's there?

N: These drones had no means of defense.

The leader of the group approaches one of the bodies and touches it, nothing happens.

N: They didn't have a chance.

A cable shoots out of the mound and through the leader's head.

Drone Investigator 3: Wow, what the hell?!

What looks like a clawed hand emerges from the mound and grabs the body, then a partially formed mechanical creature rises up, legless and missing an arm, but his appearance is intimidating enough that the drones know he caused it all. this, especially when he starts laughing.

End of hindsight
Uzi: So, that thing was the one that slaughtered the drones and not you?
N: Uh… 50/50.

Uzi looked seriously at N.

Uzi: We're not for N games.
N: Sorry, just me-
Uzi: That doesn't matter now, if what you say is true and then they sent you guys to take over.
V: No

V realized that her partner had opened her mouth, so she decided that if they were to know the truth she should tell it herself.

Uzi: What did you mean by that?
V: That after that, "Incident", combat drones were sent to eliminate that thing.
Uzi: Drones what?
V: Basically soldier drones, with weapons and the whole thing.
Uzi: And what happened?
V: We could barely hold that thing back, what do you think happened to them?

Uzi swallowed at that.

Doll: Если компания хочет убить эту штуку, почему они не послали вас с самого начала?
V: Because we didn't exist at that time, or at least not as such.
N: what do you mean?

V hesitated a few seconds before answering.

V: According to J, we are an… update that the combat drones should have received, but they gave it to us because they had unwanted behavior changes.
Uzi: Define, “unwanted behaviors”.
V: Well, they became extremely irritable, hyper active and started killing everything that moved.
Uzi: How are you?

V looked annoyed at Uzi.

V: Believe me, they were much worse, but as she said, in short they went crazy, so the company ordered us to take care of them.
Uzi: They sacrificed them.
V: It's a way of saying it, but yes.
Uzi: N, why didn't you mention that?
N: Because, honestly I didn't remember them, I mean, from what V says I think he's referring to team 23 and J didn't let me help much.
Uzi: Anyway, I think- wait you said 23.
V: yes
Uzi: You mean-
V: 23 teams were sent to put an end to that thing and none of them succeeded, we are team 24.

There was an awkward silence, Uzi trying to process the information she had just received, knowing that 23 groups of company-armed drones had been destroyed by that thing… it was terrifying.

Uzi: And you say that only you could face it?
V: Well, not exactly, that bastard destroyed my head and it took me a while to regenerate, when I woke up N told me that J had killed him, something that by the way turned out NOT TO BE TRUE.

N laughed nervously at V's comments.

N: In my defense J said that he had done it.
V: Anyway, when I got there his body was lying in the snow without moving, it was very big and they had given us the order to eliminate all the drones in the area to make sure that it hadn't escaped infecting someone, we needed to stock up on oil and we couldn't leave it out in the open, just like that, so what and...
Uzi: So what?

V and N didn't respond, Uzi didn't understand the reason for this, until he realized with horror what they were referring to.

Uzi: You buried him-
Doll: На горе трупов.

He said coming to the same conclusion as Uzi

Uzi: But why didn't they destroy it?
V: J didn't want to and said we needed to keep it, company orders.
Uzi: You can't be serious.
V: Ok, looking back maybe it wasn't the best idea, but she was the boss at the time, okay?
Uzi: I know, but why the hell would the company want to keep the thing that killed so many of their drones, it doesn't make sense, they'd just be wasting resources.
Doll: Я тут о чем-то подумал, она говорит, что "Джей" убила эту штуку, но явно это было не так, но и она не мо гла притворяться, что это сделала, так как ее тело не имеет сознания, а vdrug-
Uzi: J was infected all this time.

Uzi noticed that Doll looked at her annoyed for interrupting her.

Uzi: Hey, you did the same.
V: I doubt J was infected, I mean, that thing tried to turn us into its "minions" several times, even with J, but never succeeded.
N: That is true.
Uzi: But, what if she wasn't infected as such, but she, she "contained" it.
N: What do you mean?
Uzi: Think about it, J was absurdly loyal to the company, and they wanted this thing alive, but clearly couldn't kill it, what if J managed to transfer that monster's consciousness into hers and she contained it.

There was silence again.

Uzi: But, when I killed her, the program took over, the Absolute Fixer was supposed to regenerate J, but instead she just grew and grew, what if she wasn't killing for the sake of killing.
N: I don't understand, what does the program have to do with that thing?
Doll: Во время занятия профессор сказал, что чем больше и сложнее машина, тем больше вычислительной мо щности требуется для ее правильной работы.
Uzi: Right, maybe the fixer was trying to keep him contained, but… when we killed him, we-
V: They released that thing.

V looked annoyed at N and Uzi, the latter lowered her head as she realized that the monster that had taken Thad and many others had been released by her, first attracting the murder drones to the colony and now releasing an immortal monster that He only seeks to kill. It was in situations like this that she wondered… what would have happened if she had never left the colony that day? I don't notice her concern and try to cheer her up.

N: Uzi, it's not your fault, well technically yes, but the point is that we've all made mistakes, right girls?

V was not interested in answering and Doll just looked away from her.

N: Uzi you don't-
V: Oh that's not true!

Quickly V decade, N did not understand until, under her sight, there were hundreds and hundreds of those "zombie minions" around the place, most walking aimlessly, while others pulled out the piled bodies and took them away.
N quickly descended with the girls and stood next to V.

N: V, now what?
V: Silence, I try to think.
Uzi: I thought you'd jump right in and kill them all.
V (annoyed): I don't know if you noticed, but those things aren't easy to kill.
Doll: Так что, мы просто спрячемся здесь?
V: No, but, hey, Violet.
Uzi: Don't call me that.
V: Ok, “Uvi” or whatever your name is, can't your weapon shoot a super laser like J?

Uzi looked annoyed at V

Uzi: First, my name is Uzi and second, no, the energy core wears out very quickly and I used it to kill that other thing.
V: Ugh, great, and your Russian girl?

Doll looked annoyed at vi and manifested a knife pointed at her.

V (growling): Seriously none of you think of anything! I guess that's how J must have felt with us.
Uzi: Oh I'm sorry if, you know, we tried to process everything that just happened.
N: Hey girls
V: Oh yes, of course, now you start to think about that, right?!
N: Girls
Uzi: Maybe we could deal with this more calmly if, you know, THEY DIDN'T KILL SO MANY OF US!
V: Do you really blame me? When were you the one who released that thing?!
Uzi: Hey, it was the Absolute Solver who broke my weapon and destroyed himself.
V: I remind you that you killed J and he became that thing because of you.
N: Girls
V (points to N): And if you hadn't sided with him, we would have finished all this, and we'd go home.

Tired of nobody listening to him, N screamed.


There was an awkward silence, mostly because N wasn't the type to, well, yell for attention.

Uzi: Hey, we're waiting for you, what's up?

N pointed to the side, when they turned around they saw a large number of those "zombies" staring at them.

V: oh

The creatures began to laugh and ran towards them.

V: Oh you have to be kidding.

V quickly launched herself at the "zombies" cutting a group of them in half, but as expected, this didn't stop you and they began to crawl towards her. N fired several energy shots from her arm.

N: Uzi, I think we could use a little help.
Uzi: I don't know if you noticed, but I need a power core for my weapon to work.
N: But you don't have those claws and-?

Uzi looked annoyed at N not wanting to bring it up at that moment.

N: O-okay

N pierced the torso of one of the zombies and ripped out its energy core which he delivered to Uzi. He quickly attached it to his gun and began shooting at the creatures that kept coming.

Uzi: This is much better.

He quickly smashed the heads of several of them, to ensure that the bastards could not rise again. While this was happening, Doll was eliminating multiple zombies that were trying to get to her, but either she sent them flying using her powers, or she crushed them with said strange symbol that she summoned. V for her part cut and shredded all the zombies she found, if she were around another time she would possibly drink her oil, but she was more focused on finding Thad and preventing him from finding the body of that thing that in that.
As she ripped the head off of a zombie drone, she heard what seemed to be the sound of... an engine?, when she turned her head a gray blur hit her. When he fell to the ground, he saw what appeared to be a wrecked takedown drone, barely standing, with wires sticking out of its body and its wings spread, but unlike them, its clothing was more… “formal”, it was covered. of oil, but even so the symbol of the company and the number 23 on his chest were distinguishable, he was one of the members of team 23 sent to deal with that thing, who had to be sacrificed as they became unstable.

V: Ugh, what I was missing.

The creature laughed and jumped towards her, its claws collided with V's who tried to defend himself from the zombie that did not stop laughing, N attacked him from behind, but surprisingly, his broken wings bent towards him causing a deep cut on his neck. chest. N stepped back somewhat in pain, then pointed her cannon arm at him, but noticed that V was in the middle.

N: V move.
V: Do you think I can? Just shoot him!
N: But-
V: Just do it!

N was forced to fire, creating a large cloud of smoke as the shot hit, she approached and found V badly damaged, having lost a leg and an arm.

N: are you okay?
V: This is nothing.

Suddenly the winged zombie pounced on N, a large part of her body was missing, only her torso and one arm remaining.

N: Ah, take it from me.

What could be described as a ninja star flew out and impaled the zombie's head, spinning inside and ripping him apart internally, the beast convulsing before falling dead to the ground. N looked in the direction of his savior seeing that it was Doll, Uzi was shooting at the other zombies that were advancing towards them trying to make them go back.

Uzi: Not to put pressure on them, but these things keep coming, how many of us did they kill?
V: In our defense, that thing did 70% of the job.

V, having partially regenerated, prepared to jump into the approaching zombie army, but stopped when she heard laughter and growls from another direction, she and N turned in that direction and saw multiple eyes in the blizzard staring at them, V between the hills. her eyes to see straight, only to be caught off guard when the rest of the now zombie team 23 flew in her direction. Team 23 unlike the team of N, V and J, this was made up of 12 prototype disassembly drones, if killing one cost them anything, this was going to take longer, they flew over them as if they were vultures, they then charged into the group in an attempt to finish them off.

V: Ugh, it had to be these guys.
N: Do you know them?

V cut two to one who flew at her and fired multiple rounds at her head to make sure he didn't get back up.

V: We killed them, you don't remember, no wait, J left you out of that.
N: That when she was her?
Uzi: Look, I'd love to know the context of all this, but we could focus on that later!

Uzi blocked the claws of one of those things with his weapon, he held her and tried to snatch it away to leave her defenseless, because she pressed the trigger, the weapon began to shoot in all directions, accidentally hitting both the zombie drones and V and N.

N: Ouch.
V: Be careful idiot!
Uzi: Do you think I can control it?!

One of the shots went to Doll, who covered herself waiting for the impact, but there was none, when she opened her eyes she saw that she had managed to stop the energy projectile in midair, she didn't have time to process this when one of those things struck her. stabbing him in the chest, she screamed in pain, but she wasn't going to sit idly by, so she redirected the projectile's course and launched it at the flying drone. Although she didn't hit the target, if she smashed her arms, she clearly didn't take it well and she lunged at Doll, who manifested several knives and threw them at her head to kill him once and for all.
On the other hand, V had to deal with 3 of those things, as if he didn't have enough problems. She turned her hand into a kind of harpoon and threw it at one of them, the harpoon stuck in the chest of the winged zombie and threw it at a group of common zombies that were approaching, the other two jumped towards her, she barely managed to stop. the first, but not the second, who bit his left arm. V grunted in pain before yelling at her partner.

V: M!
N: I'm-
V: Help!
N: oh

He quickly destroyed the drone that was attacking him and flew towards V, taking the drone that was directly attacking her by surprise and threw it at another one that was flying towards them, smashing them in the air, V turned his free hand into a sword and attacked the drone that was attacking him. It bit the arm, but it was faster and ripped it off, she screamed, but in anger and changed her sword for a machine gun with which she shot at the creature, destroying it.

V: Thanks, uh…
V: Yes, that.

Back with Uzi, she was trying to free her weapon from the grasp of the flying drone, who refused to let go.

Uzi: Oh come on, let it go.

Uzi kicked at the creature, but it had no effect, instead it hit him back, Uzi fell and the monster threw the weapon aside, she tried to move away, but he lunged at her, digging his claws into the snow and it opened its mouth, showing its sharp teeth and wires that dangled from its mouth. When the zombie was going to "bite" it, almost as if he did it out of instinct, Uzi attacked the creature, thrusting his fist into its mouth, then his hand turned into a claw and opened it, smashing its head, the monster fell dead. On top of her, Uzi pushed the body to the side and looked at her claw, covered in oil... and felt the need to taste it, lost in her thoughts it felt like time froze, until she heard Doll scream, she quickly regained her composure and returned his claw to normal. Doll was desperately trying to get rid of the tide of reanimated bodies that were trying to reach her, although she could easily just destroy them using her powers, it turned out that the damage caused by that "spider" in the colony somewhat interfered with her, so she was it was making it difficult to use them correctly. Quickly a flurry of energy shots tore most of them apart and they gave him time to get away from them. V flew into the air attracting the remaining flying zombies who started flying after her. N tried to follow them, but she saw that Uzi and Doll were being surrounded, she looked at V being surrounded in the air by those things, but Uzi was also in trouble. N had to decide whether to help Uzi or help V.
Uzi and Doll were trying to push back the zombies that were crawling towards them, Uzi's gun would run out of power at this point and Doll's powers would keep failing.

Uzi: Ugh, because they just don't die.

She kicked one that was nearby while the others kept getting closer. One who was supposedly dead behind Uzi, got up and grabbed her from behind, she tried to fight, but accidentally dropped her weapon, fed up with this, her hands turned into claws and she impaled the drone's head, then threw it to the ground and began to crush it over and over and over again until it was simply nothing but scrap.
She gasped at the incessant urge to kill, for doing so... felt good, felt VERY good, she looked at her claws again, with oil dripping from them, she again felt the need to taste it, but quickly came back to her senses when more of those zombies approached her, a wide smile broke out on her face while that strange symbol flashed on her visor, she didn't bother to retrieve her weapon, because she already had others.
As this was happening, a white eye under a mound of corpses watched the group fight their minions.

Returning to our group, Uzi ripped and shredded the zombie drones that pounced on him, this while N and V took care of the last 2 remaining flying zombies.

V: huh, L?
N: It's N
V: Whatever, don't you think you should tell your girlfriend to calm down a bit?
N: what?! No, she's not-

No sooner had she noticed the small mountain of bodies that Uzi had created, she found herself hitting while she was laughing uncontrollably at a zombie that had stopped moving a long time ago.

N: Oh… that.

N managed to decapitate the flying zombie that was attacking him, then he approached Uzi, Doll was on one side watching, she didn't dare to approach her crazed companion.

N: Uh, Uzi?

Uzi ripped the head off one of the zombies and used it to hit the limp body of another that was next to it.

Doll: Я не думаю, что это хорошая идея, чтобы привлечь его внимание her?
N Uzi?

Uzi turned around, about to drink the oil from the head she was holding, until N caught her attention and she came to her senses.

Uzi: No?
N: what are you doing?
Uzi: I…

She quickly tossed her head to the side and climbed down the small hill of corpses that she had made.

Uzi: she was just in charge of cleaning the place.
N: Umm… And that was necessary?

N pointed to the mound of corpses that Uzi made.

Uzi: Oh, that, it's just… let's change the subject.
V: yes

V approached holding the head of the zombie that was attacking her, then smashed it to make sure the bastard stayed dead.

V: How to find your "little friend" and put an end to all this at once.
Uzi: Look, I want to end all of this too, but you don't think there's any alternative other than, you know, killing him.
Doll: Ненавижу это признавать, но он прав.

Uzi looked at Doll confused considering that she tried to kill V just a few hours ago.

Doll: But that doesn't mean I like him.

V looked at Doll who looked at her annoyed, she rolled her eyes and turned her attention to N.

V: Well, I think he is already

V was interrupted when a kind of mechanical roar was heard in the distance.


And she was already fed up with these zombies, they simply did not stop coming, or so she thought, since there were practically none alive, but in the distance she could see a light moving erratically and quickly.

Uzi: What is that?
V: Ugh, I'll take care of it.

V opened his wings and flew into the blizzard which had increased, a few seconds passed without anything happening, until shots and sounds of clashing blades were heard, then V flew out and crashed into Doll.

N: V!

N rushed to help her partner while Uzi aimed his gun and fired at the approaching dim light, but missed as she was zic-zac.

Uzi: What the hell?

Suddenly, the creature jumped towards her, managing to ram her, the beast raised her claw to pierce it, but Uzi stopped it in time with his own, it was at that moment that she was able to see it more closely. He was moderately taller and bulkier than a common drone, he had a red jacket that was torn and covered in oil, his arms and legs were more robotic and coarse, in addition to having claws on both his hands and feet, his helmet was cracked and at the same time Like other zombies, it seemed that its jaw was attached to its head by cables, in addition to having a single glowing white eye in the middle of its visor.

Uzi: T-Thad?

A shot of energy hit the creature freeing Uzi, but this had not finished with it, as it was clearly more resistant than the others, the beast quickly recomposed itself and ran on all fours towards en, who fired again.

Uzi: No, wait.

N fired, but the zombie hunter dodged and jumped on him, digging his claws into his torso, N screamed in pain as the hunter violently withdrew his claws ripping into his chest and digging them into his face . Doll decided not to be left behind and materialized several knives around her and threw them at the creature. She, however, did not even bother to protect herself, since most of the knives could not go through his body and only one hit his head, but he simply took it from his face and threw it abruptly to the ground. He then began to approach her while chuckling slightly as Doll backed away, she tried to summon one of those weird symbols like when they were in the colony, but it just kept failing without interacting with the physical world. Luckily for her, V managed to wake up and lunged at the thing, using her swords to block the attack from her claws and trying to cut it.

V: I should have killed you when I had the chance!

He simply laughed, irritated by this, she managed to stab him into her chest with her sword, then spread her wings and began to soar with him.

N: W, wait!

V continues to rise as she punched the monster in the face.

V (hitting him): Let's see, if you keep laughing at this.

The creature continued laughing at her, V angrily tried to hit him to smash his head, but he caught her arm with her mouth and ripped it off causing her to scream in pain.

V: Ah, damn son of-!

But she couldn't finish when the enhanced zombie opened her mouth and several wires came out of it, digging into her head.

V: No

His visor glitched and a message appeared on it.


Then her body was inert beginning to fall at high speed. Below, Doll, N and Uzi looked expectantly when they noticed how they began to descend at high speed.

Uzi: Uh… that doesn't look good.
N: V!

N opened his wings and tried to reach them, but they crashed into the ground, generating a large cloud of dust and snow that covered the place. After a few seconds of waiting, the light from the creature's eye and its laughter became present and showed itself above. from V's body which cushioned the fall, N launched against the beast which responded in the same way, digging its claws into the torso, then opened them throwing large amounts of oil and took N's head and smashed it against the ground , only to then crush it with the claw of his foot, then he slowly turned his head and laughed when he saw the two remaining girls, to later launch himself on Doll.

Uzi: Ugh, dammit.

She tried to shoot, only to realize that she couldn't pull the trigger, it was as if her body refused to do it, while the zombie attacked Doll who threw knives at it to stop it but just like before, it was useless, because which using all his concentration, he managed to stop him by placing that strange holographic symbol on his limbs, although he could easily tear him to pieces at that moment, due to the failure of his powers, the most he could do was stop him, but that was enough, because Uzi could take care of the rest.

Doll: Давай, поторопись и сNESи ему голову.

Uzi raised her gun and aimed at the head of the zombie that was struggling to get free... but for some reason she couldn't pull the trigger, she tried to, but she couldn't, because in that monster she still saw her old friend her.

Doll: Узи, чего ты ждешь, я не могу-

The creature broke free of those holographic restraints causing a small burst of energy that sent Doll flying and knocked her unconscious. Then she directed her gaze to Uzi who still couldn't shoot him, he began to walk towards her while Uzi backed away out of fear.

Uzi: Thad

The creature began to laugh slowly as it extended its claws.

Uzi: I-I know you're there… please don't make me do this.

He did not stop his advance, in turn N recovered consciousness after regenerating seeing how that thing approached his friend.

N: Ozi!

Uzi finally using all his willpower managed to pull the trigger... but nothing happened. It turns out that he spent all of the weapon's energy on the zombie army from before. When he looked up he saw the zombie standing in front of her, staring at her with his only eye.

Uzi: Thad, I-

Uzi stopped as he felt the blades of the being's claws pierce his body, then the creature picked him up while roaring and split him horizontally in two, throwing his remains roughly in different directions, with the top falling to the side of the mound of bodies. that she had formed earlier and a few surviving zombies that were creeping towards her.


N got up when he saw his friend being violently murdered and pounced on the monster that he had begun to laugh uncontrollably. He blocked the attack of his claws with his own and tried to subdue him, but N was too angry, and when that happens, he stops being the cute boy of the group, his visor showed an X instead of his eyes and he started to smile, then he held the creature's hands tightly and placed his foot on his chest, then he began to pull while it tried to free himself from his grip, but it was too late, N ripped off the zombie's arms and then dug his claws into his torso, beginning to destroying it while ripping out its insides even using his mouth, then he began to repeatedly hit its head with his hands and didn't stop until only shattered scrap was left. Despite this he didn't stop until he heard V's voice.

V: No?

N stopped his attack upon hearing that V finally remembered his name. Then they both looked at each other in awkward silence. To say that she was surprised was an understatement, J always said how N was a burden and a dead weight, so V's vision of him was not a big deal, but he never thought that his clumsy partner could "explode" like that. shape.

V (thinking): I wonder what J would have said if she saw you now?
N: I-
V: Look that doesn't matter now, that thing isn't really dead, now we just have to get rid of its body and all this hell will be over.
Doll: What kind of thing?

Doll said with her arms crossed, although she had been willing to help them finish this thing off, what would they do next? N and V were still Killer Drones, their purpose was to kill the worker drones, they would return to the colony and kill to all.

V (annoyed): What are you insinuating?
Doll: Что они собираются делать, когда закончат с этой штукой?
V: Look whatever your name is, I still haven't forgotten that you tried to kill me, so I would suggest you watch your words.

They both looked at each other with mutual contempt, while N was silent thinking about Uzi. But they all stopped when they heard a strange sound, like metal and plastic breaking. The three of them turned slowly in the direction of the creature and saw how it was getting up, despite its damaged state multiple cables were coming out of its body, and connected to the arms and various remains of other zombies scattered around the place and the remains of the shattered head, the wires from the head reached out and grabbed the head of the flying drone that N had decapitated earlier, then attached it to his body, for a few seconds there was silence, but it was broken by the laughter of that monster whose eye lit up in your viewer.

V: Why can't you just fucking die?!
Doll(scared): Ч-что это за монстр на самом деле?

N did not hesitate and launched himself again at Uzi's killer, but he had to avoid it as the zombie doubled his body and multiple cables with pieces of sharp metal extended from the large hole in his torso thanks to N. Then he rejoined and ran on all fours towards V and Doll, V changed his claws for weapons and started shooting, while Doll threw whatever she had, knives, throwing stars or pieces of zombie drones at him. But nothing seemed to stop him, V tried to sting him with the stinger of his tail, managing to infect his arm with the acid nanobots, but this did not seem to matter to him, even when it began to corrode and separate from his body. He countered by stabbing V into his arm and again ripping him from his body.

V: Not again!

The zombie was going to impale his head with his claws, but a holographic symbol of Doll around his wrist stopped him. N then charged and pinned him before throwing himself against a wall to pin him down.

N: V shoot!

V, unlike Uzi, did not hesitate and began to shoot at point blank range at both of them, the shots slightly damaged N but the same could not be said of the creature, that although its body could resist the shots, its head could not and it was being damaged. So to get rid of it, I grabbed the stinger from N's tail and cut it before digging into the head, causing it to remain inert on the ground, although the disassembly drones could resist the effect of their own nanobots, or at least of In a way that wasn't lethal, that didn't mean they couldn't hurt them. After breaking free, he ran again like a wild animal towards the two girls while they shot at him. V exchanged his amra for a sword while he attacked the monster.


He held the swords and using absurd force split them in two, V changed his weapon again, this time into normal claws. Then he tried to attack it with his claw, but the zombie opened its mouth and several cables came out like tentacles trying to catch it, V quickly moved away and avoided being touched, although he had tried to maintain his serious attitude throughout this time, the truth it's that there was something that worried her, and a lot, her arm, it didn't regenerate, well, it did, but VERY slowly. Because? Why wasn't her regeneration system repairing her at the same speed as before? What was that feeling in his chest? Was it fear?
V moved further away from the creature fearing for her life, whatever she did to him had triggered that survival instinct she apparently lacked, apparently a side effect of slowing her regeneration.
Doll looked annoyed at V when she saw that she was alone against this monster, who began to approach her in a threatening way while she laughed. She manifested various knives, saws, ninja stars and anything she could use as a weapon, then began to throw it at him as he began to run against her, unlike before if it had a greater effect, as the objects managed to go through his body and leave him still. more, but he kept advancing, even his cables quickly assimilated several of the objects that were thrown at him in his own body. Doll, on the other hand, was exhausted, using her powers so often and relentlessly was draining almost all of her energy, not to mention that they were not working properly, since several of the objects that she was throwing at her were vanishing in the air. So using what little energy she had left, she manifested various symbols on different parts of the zombie's body and turned them around several times, a horrible sound of metal and artificial organs breaking was heard as the creature's body fell to the inert ground. . Doll breathed heavily feeling her microprocessors boiling from overexertion, sure that now the damned should be dead...
I think by now you should get the idea that this is almost impossible, as her broken body began to rise again, twisting the broken joints and bending to stay upright. Then she began to walk on all fours towards her, she was helpless, too tired to do anything, she was about to close her eyes waiting for death when several shots attracted the creature. N and V started shooting at the monster in order to kill it once and for all, but without success. N had already regenerated and V had decided to attack again because she didn't know that this thing would inevitably kill them, but at least she wouldn't die hiding like a rat. Another confrontation with an obvious result was about to take place, but the zombie stopped and looked in another direction. The group of three looked confused in the same direction and noticed something, in the small mound of bodies from before, several of the zombies' bodies were torn apart and open, as if a wild animal had devoured them, since said animal was on its back. , over a corpse and what could be described as two wings made of... meat?, the creature slowly turned around and showed itself as Uzi, but in the middle of her visor was that strange symbol and her mouth had several sharp teeth, she started laughing when she flew at high speed against her old friend managing to ram him and causing them to crash against the wall causing a cloud of smoke, when this dissipated his new appearance could be better appreciated, his body looked slightly different, but his legs were now more similar to V's, in addition to possessing a tail with yellow acid on it, but the most prominent thing was clearly its wings that seemed to be made of meat. Uzi laughed and attacked the zombie Thad who could barely defend himself due to only having one arm, several cables came out of the zombie's mouth and tried to hold Uzi, but she countered with her tail which he bit and smashed, causing the acid to melt his wires and part of his jaw. As these two killed each other, V, N, and Doll looked away from the conflict.

V: Since when-?
N: We shouldn't help.
Doll: Я не думаю, что это хорошая идея?

Uzi pinned Thad slammed him repeatedly into the ground as he laughed uncontrollably, then without giving him a chance to defend himself plunged his claw into the hole in his chest and violently ripped out what could only be described as his heart. Whereupon the creature wailed in apparent pain, and its single eye went black. Uzi laughed as she dripped the oil onto her face.

V (pointing her arm at her weapon): Great now we have to deal with her.
Doll: Я думаю, мы не должны привлекать его внимание her-
N: Uzi you did amazing!

Uzi turned to look at them abruptly and smiled when he saw new prey, he put aside the artificial heart and began to approach them while she slightly tilted her head, as if they were analyzing them.

V: Goodbye to the surprise factor, idiot.
N: But, she-

Uzi's laughter began to increase as she approached them menacingly, so they "instinctively" began to back away. Uzi extended her claws ready to pounce on the poor defenseless group, as Doll could barely stand upright, V was missing an arm and his wounds were still not fully healed, N was the only one fit to fight, but it's not that the be willing to harm Uzi.
Just when she was about to pounce on them, suddenly the creature's arm grabbed her neck and pulled her close to him, showing that his "heart" had been reconnected by the cables that were reattached to his body. .

V: Oh you can't be serious!
N: Uzi!

N tried to go help her, but it was too late, the zombie opened her mouth and several new cables came out and stuck in Uzi's head. She struggled for a few seconds before going limp, N looked worried, but then the creature began to convulse violently, releasing Uzi.

The creature's body went rigid and then fell limp to the ground, this time truly dead.

V:…what the hell just happened?!
N: Ozi!
N quickly approached Uzi who was unconscious on the ground, he lifted her up and tried to make her react. On her visor could be seen a constantly rotating charge symbol.

N: Come on Uzi, she reacts.

N tried to see if she could do anything, but it's not like he really knew how to fix her, especially given the change in her body. But luckily for him, her visor came on and Uzi started to react, this time without that strange symbol on her face.

Uzi: Ugh, my head, what happened.
N: uzi

N hug Uzi happily.

Uzi: N… I… can't… breathe.
N: Oh, sorry.
Uzi: *gasp* Thanks, I felt like, wait-

It was at that moment that Uzi felt something strange in his back and her legs, when he turned to look, to say that she was surprised was an understatement.

Uzi: WHAT?! WHEN?! AS?!

Uzi looked in shock at her wings and legs, as well as her tail whose stinger was broken. But I also notice something, Thad's body lying on the ground, rapidly closing in on him.

Uzi: Oh Thad.
N: are you okay?
Uzi: Yes, only…

I look sadly at the body of her former friend.

N: Don't worry, it was for the best.

At that moment V coughed to get her attention.

V: I don't want to ruin her “moment”. But I think we should find a way to kill this thing.
Doll: Разве она не мерт-
V: Don't say it!
N: Say what?
V: That damn thing is dead because it surely isn't!

As if it was a response from fate, a strong earthquake started at that moment.

Uzi: Wow, what's going on?

She suddenly came to a stop... only for moments later what could be described as several giant tentacles made of wires to emerge from the ground towering over the group who were in a visible state of shock.

V:… How I hate myself.
Doll: Я тоже ненавижу тебя.
N(in a panic): This can't be happening, this can't be happening, this can't be happening.

Then one of the tentacles began to descend dangerously in the direction of the group that quickly began to flee.

Uzi: Watch out!

The tentacle crashed into the ground digging into it, although it missed by a considerable distance, the ground began to crack, creating a crack that began to widen more and more.

Uzi: wow

Uzi lost her balance due to his new legs and fell into the void, not that she's used to how to use them.

N: Uzi!

N quickly launched after her spreading her wings. V and Doll tried to escape, but it was useless, because the ground began to collapse and Doll was about to fall, but she managed to hold on to V, who tried to get her off of her.

V: Get off me!

V struggled with Doll, completely forgetting that the damn floor was opening up, which is why she didn't notice when a large piece of rock collided with them and made them fall into the void. The crack began to widen as it swallowed various debris, zombie remains… and Thad's body. While a certain artificial life construct was beginning to see its priorities.

YES, it was expected that episode 4 would be split into two parts due to how long it is, but I'm still glad to be able to release this before episode 5 of the series comes out as I don't want to see it and then have to change several things at the last minute, so the next part will be the last... of course if I don't overexplain it by mistake, XD.

Pdta: If you notice grammar errors or some misspelled words, it's because I don't speak English, use google translator to translate this, so some things may not be understood correctly.

2023.06.06 03:55 incomingPAsummer2023 Passed the PANCE! AMA + a note to all the anxious minds

I found out this morning at 7:00am (central time) that I passed the PANCE!! First attempt, and far clear of the passing margin. Ask me anything; I'm happy to share study tips/stats/etc., but the real purpose of this post is this:
If you're reading this, you might be preparing to take the PANCE, or in the waiting period between taking the PANCE and getting results. Either way, you're probably nervous AF. I was too, less than 24 hours ago. (Like, seriously a bit of a mess.)
I'll be honest: I made excellent grades in school, never failed anything, and was always at the top of my class. And I STILL freaked out after the PANCE. So no, the fear doesn't discriminate, hahaha. BUT.... it also does NOT mean you actually failed, just because it feels like it.
I thought the PANCE had many easy questions, but also had juuuust enough random/hard ones to make me question how well I really did. And boy did I psych myself out. A week (or more) of waiting for results for the most important test of your life is an extremely nerve-wracking concept. I had fully convinced myself that I was just borderline enough to not make the cut, and I promise I'm not just being dramatic.
And what do you know, I passed.. with a pretty high score, too.
THE. ODDS. ARE. IN. YOUR. FAVOR. Repeat and repeat and repeat it again. Tape it on a sticky note on your mirror if you have to. 93% PASSING RATE. I know it doesn't fix everything instantly, but say it out loud a million times to yourself if you need to. Anxiety is stubborn, I know. And here's another blanket statement for you to lean on: hardly ANYONE feels great after leaving the PANCE. Including the people who made all A's in school. YES, it is totally normal to feel pretty crappy in the waiting process; but your emotions do NOT equal truth here. You likely did just fine, and you will get that -C!
One more for the road: TRUST YOURSELF. If you have made it at least decently through all the EORs, packrats, EOCs, and have put in the work with preparing... You're ready. You will never know the answer to every question, but that doesn't mean you aren't ready. I felt like the PANCE (at least my version) was most similar to the EOC and packrats, in the sense that I left feeling like I wasn't quite sure how I did, but ended up doing fine. I repeated that to myself over and over while I waited for results, and sure enough, same outcome — I did great. I say this to remind you that your gut is worth trusting.
Take some deep breaths, be proud of yourself, and know you WILL get that PA-C!

2023.06.06 03:46 MarcCurry Let's talk about the real-life benefits of VR gaming

I was discussing the benefits of VR gaming with one of my best friends last night. We slipped into this topic after gaming for a while and downing a couple of beers, so you can only imagine how far we went into our scientifically-philosophical analysis. In our delicately enlightened minds, VR gaming seemed like one of the most beneficial hobbies because of many factors, and I'm here to list the most important of them so sit back and enjoy.
Improving health & body
Some of you remember my story of losing 63 lbs (29 kgs) in less than a year, mainly "exercising" by playing VR games. I know I'm not alone in this, since a couple of YouTubers (LazyPeon turned out not to be that lazy) and fellow gaming colleagues managed to achieve outstanding results by including VR gaming sessions in their sedentary lifestyles. The modern, technologically advanced society brought the sedentary lifestyle to the wide masses, and with it some inevitable health issues. Spine problems, hypertension, obesity, muscle atrophy, etc. are all relatively acute issues that are the repercussions of spending the majority of the day in front of the screen. VR gaming is excellent for maintaining baseline bodily health for people who cannot or don't want to spend time in gyms. Playing physically challenging VR games for just an hour a day can get rid of so many issues - I had a mild case of sciatica before starting my weight loss journey, and VR games like Clash of Chefs and Beat Saber helped me strengthen my back muscles and completely recover my spine.
Hand-eye coordination
It's old news that video games improve eye-to-hand coordination. However, VR games take that to a completely new level since they almost identically replicate the way we naturally move our hands and eyes.
My job requires me to sometimes do detailed, manual work, and I remember how easier and faster I used to finish it after playing some shooters (like Apex, Warzone). However, VR games played a significant role in this because, during that period, I also used to play Clash of Chefs and Beat Saber a lot as a part of my weight loss journey. Imagine preparing meal after meal in Clash of Chefs, battling with other cooks, and sometimes just throwing the knives and plates around to work up your body harder - then jumping into Beat Saber to cut through the notes for an hour or two. I felt like I could be a professional samurai at one point :)
Stress relief
This one is quite obvious, but it shouldn't be left unmentioned. Modern life is so clustered with all kinds of information - not only the informative ones, in fact, "empty" information constitutes probably more than 70% of our daily intake. In fact, some studies suggest that an average person in this day and age goes through more information in a day than a 19th-century person used to go through in their entire lifetime. Since our brains didn't evolve much (if any) over the last 150 years, they cannot follow the technological advancement we've come to - meaning that our brains have come to be overwhelmed with so much extra information we receive on a daily basis. This causes micro-stresses that build up over time and, in combination with bigger stresses (the real estate market, inflation, etc.) lead to mental health issues.
Well, VR gaming can serve as an incredible medium for relieving extra stress by immersing yourself in VR games and forgetting about real-world problems at least for a little while. Into the Radius, cyubeVR, and Clash of Chefs - the three most immersive VR games I played helped me refill my batteries and recover from bad days (or weeks) so much
VR gaming is definitely something that, if utilized correctly, can change the lives of many. These are only some examples of real-life benefits resulting from VR gaming mentioned in this post, so, if you have any other to add, please do so. If you have any examples of certain VR gaming changing your life for the better, as Clash of Chefs and Beat Saber did for me, make sure to recommend them so others can learn about them.
Let's discuss the positive and beneficial sides of VR gaming :)

2023.06.06 03:43 ohbagelmybin Advice for a curly hair noob?

I've been having trouble finding/understanding how to care for my curly hair for years now. I ended up cutting all of my hair off to try to ease the hassle of it but now 7 ish months later its grown back and this time I want to learn how to care for it. I'm honestly looking for advice, no matter what it is for curly hair in general. I have no clue what to look for in hair care products, and seeing all the products on shelves in stores seems a bit overwhelming. I guess I'm just looking for health in my hair, I don't have to have "perfect" curls just something that is healthy. Does anyone know where I can start, or any advice for someone new to the curly hair ways. (Btw for background, I'm mixed with white and black, and sadly my mother hasn't known how to/showed me ways to care for my hair specifically, and often would take me to salon' to have it "managed".)

2023.06.06 03:36 Relentless-Dragonfly My nightmarish chin lipo journey thus far..

I finally got my chin lipo done last week after months and months or dreaming and researching. So far, my results look good and at the end of the day, that what's most important to me. But I wanted to share my experience since I wish I had read something like this before I went in. I don't think it would have deterred me from getting the procedure, but I do wish I had been more prepared. Maybe someone can learn from my mistakes.
I went to a very reputable surgeon in my area. Board certified in facial plastic surgery, stellar reviews on every possible platform. Really great before and after gallery for chin lipo specifically, it was obviously one of his most popular procedures. I thought I found the best in my area. The procedure ended up being on the pricier end of what to expect in my area, but I felt that it was worth it given his specialty and experience.
The problems started the day of my appointment. I arrive about 15 minutes early and they inform me that the surgeon is running late. Turns out he was running a whole hour late. I sat in a waiting room for almost an hour and a half. Of course during this time, I'm peeved, but I don't say anything. I don't want a rushed procedure so I'm not going to try and rush someone else's procedure. But my alarm bells really started ringing when I went to the bathroom while I was waiting and there is someone else's pee sample sitting in the sink, seemingly abandoned. That's gross. I try to shake it off and hope its just a fluke. However, full on panic ensues when I see the state of the surgery room. It's messy, disorganized, and not at all what I picture when I think of a sterile environment. It's messy but not visibly dirty, so I don't run screaming, though maybe I should have. It also doesn't help that my surgeon appears to be just as disorganized as the room. I'm internally freaking out at this point. The only thing keeping in that room is the fact that this man has a ton of documented experience, a board certification, and less than a handful of bad reviews. I've already paid and I don't even know if I'd be able to get a refund at this point. I know I'd for sure lose the deposit which was still more than I could afford to lose. So go I through with it.
The procedure itself was incredibly uncomfortable. It was local anesthesia so I was awake the whole time. The only pain was with the numbing shots and that was about a 5/10 but I'm also a baby. That was all to be expected based off my research and what he had told me pre-procedure but I was still surprised but just how uncomfortable the whole thing was. My biggest complaint about the procedure itself was that he had restrained my hands to the bed. He did not warn me ahead of time, which I do not appreciate at all. There was a female assistant in the room at all times and staff close by outside the room, so that somewhat helped my anxiety. At this point, I just wanted to be done and get out of there.
I wish I could say that was the end of the nightmare but sadly not. I was sent home with gauze wrapped around my head that added some compression, but this was to be taken off the next day. He had told me pre-procedure that he felt compression after 24 hours was unnecessary. Since just about every other surgeon on this planet recommends compression for a bare minimum of a week, I went ahead and bought a jaw bra on amazon anyway. So after taking the gauze off the next day, I pop on the compression garment and go to sleep. I wake up on post-op day 2 with the most horrendous looking rash on my neck. I'll post pictures in the comments if I can. But basically it's just absolutely nasty. Immediately I assume that I've got an infection so I call my surgeon. At this point, my surgeon has lost all of my trust so I also book an urgent care appointment. My surgeon essentially brushes off my concerns as normal and tells me to leave it alone, in a patronizing tone. The urgent care clinician said that it did not look like an infection or an allergic reaction and said that maybe the compression was to blame and to stop wearing the jaw bra. So I was left feeling absolutely hopeless and powerless with no compression options and the ugliest rash I've ever seen on my neck.
I decided that no compression was not a risk I'm willing to take and I started using some athletic tape as a form of compression. This allowed me to keep the rash area clear but still adding at least a little compression. I don't know if this method will actually work but the area feels compressed and it's at least better than nothing. So here I am, post-op day 5 with compression tape on my chin, a slightly better looking rash on my neck and all the god damn hope in the world that that was not all for nothing and I didn't just burn $5000. So far from what I can see, the results have been worth it. Which should clue you in on how desperate I was for this procedure. But holy hell this has not been easy. I've felt like I haven't taken a breath since the moment I walked into that office 5 days ago.
