2023.06.02 01:20 BeatTerrible8979 Want to make a half resin model of the demon core with real plutonium.
So the idea would be to have the tungsten shell (1:1) and then the actual core be a resin ball (3in) with a tiny enough spec of plutonium that it wouldn’t be a danger to anyone. Maybe some blue led lights for extra effect. I know you can buy small quantities easily. But I’d prefer not to spend 5k on a old smoke detector. Laws in my area say it’s illegal to have more than a gram and not be licensed. So less than a gram.

So removing a fan replacing it with an LED fixture. I have a junction box with two romex's? coming out of the right and one from the left. I'm assuming one goes to the switch, one goes to the hallway light (that's out right now) and one is a feeder. I can't get the LED to work without somehow disconnecting the hall lway light. submitted by Significant-Yam8644 to electrical [link] [comments]
I'd appreciate the help.
Notes: there is no ground were talking circa 70's maybe wiring. There is a red wire that has black tape wrapped all the way up.

I looked at honda’s spec sheet for the ‘23 accord and realized there’s nothing about LED fog lights. I know the dedicated place for fog lights were removed for the ‘23 year but did they just get rid of them entirely?

2023.06.02 01:01 EtNuncEtSemper The Raid on Skopje (Uskub), 1918 (Part 2)
| || | submitted by EtNuncEtSemper to MilitaryHistory [link] [comments]
The march, led by two local guides, begins on the morning of 26th, with the 1st RCA in the van and the RSM as rear guard. From Lisiče, the road is a series of mountain paths, on which the cavalry moves on foot, single file, leading the mounts by the bridle; the column stretches out for 6km. The pack animals carrying the machine guns advance with difficulty; the mules seem to be less sure-footed than the Barbary mounts. Drenovo is reached by evening, but the pause is short; by midnight, the march resumes. Crossing a plateau which rises to almost 1800m (5900ft), they descend towards Aldinci, which they reach by dawn on the 27th. But the RSM, having taken a wrong path, was forced to retrace its steps and it arrives at Aldinci only towards the evening.
The RCA march again after sunset, in the rain, and reach Crvena Voda by morning on the 28th, followed by the RSM during the day. The provisions have long been exhausted and the cavalry forages what they can; but at least there is enough water for the animals. In late afternoon the cavalry set out once more and, before midnight, they stop close to Dračevo, ready to debouch into the Skopje valley.
FJG plans to attack Skopje from 3 directions, W, SE, and E.
- RSM, better equipped with heavy weapons, will take and hold the Vodna heights, which dominate the town from the west; they will also block the Tetovo (Kalkandelen) road, which the XIth Army is using.
- 4th RCA will attack NW from Dračevo directly into Skopje.
- 1st RCA will cross the Vardar near Jurumleri and attack Skopje from the E, along the Kumanovo road.
Action, which comes as a total surprise for the enemy, commences at 0500 on the 29th. The Moroccan spahis
set out in deep fog towards Vodna. By 0900, having brushed aside light resistance, they are installed solidly on the heights and begin to block the Tetovo road, which by now is full of Bulgarians and Germans fleeing Skopje.
The 4th RCA follows along the right bank of the Vardar. Near Gorno Lisiče (a different village from the Lisiče at the foot of Mt Golešnica) they are stopped by heavy fire from a German armoured train. The chasseurs
dismount and attack on foot; the armoured train withdraws towards the railway station, and, by 0800, the French reach the outskirts of Skopje. Half an hour later, they penetrate the town and patrols move to secure the heights north of Skopje. In the mean time, retreating Germans set on fire the railway station and supply dumps.
The 1st RCA crosses the Vardar at 0530, but, at Jurumleri, it comes across a Bulgarian infantry battalion. The Bulgarians resist stubbornly; two sabre charges fail to dislodge them. While some chasseurs
dismount and attack on foot, two squadrons move to the Skopje-Veles road to deliver a flank assault. By noon, the Bulgarians are set to flight and a large road convoy is captured; by 1300 the 1st RCA reach, and cut, the Skopje-Kumanovo railway. But it is too late to stop several loaded trains which have fled north, escorted by the armoured train. Lacking heavy weapons, the 4th RCA could not prevent them from leaving the railway station.
Shortly after noon on the 29th, Skopje is under French control, although there are still, especially in the Turkish quarter, stragglers trying to escape, as well as some rear-guard action on the Kumanovo road. Despite the destruction, a significant booty has been captured and the cavalrymen can finally eat their fill.
For three days, the cavalry has been out of touch with higher command. War pigeons, carrying FJG's daily reports, have failed to arrive at the AFO HQ. A French aircraft makes contact with the cavalry during the battle; then, around 1400, two French aircraft land close to Skopje and take off shortly thereafter with a full report. In Thessaloniki (Salonica), Franchet d'Espèrey has been negotiating since the 28th an armistice with the Bulgarians. The news of the fall of Skopje is decisive and, shortly before midnight on the 29th, the Bulgarians effectively capitulate.
The mission of the cavalry is by no means over. They have taken Skopje -- now they have to hold it against the inevitable attack of the XIth Army, determined to escape towards Kumanovo. The main roads are blocked as follows: from Tetovo, by the RSM; from Kačanik, by the 4th RCA, to Kumanovo by the 1st RCA. Few in number and lacking artillery, they need urgent reinforcements. But the Tranié task force is delayed by the fighting at Veles. Despite the armistice, throughout the day of the 30th and continually through the night, Germans and Bulgarians attack the roadblocks, primarily on the Vodno heights to the W and the Kačanik road to the N. Finally, on the morning of the October 1st, the first elements of the Tranié task force reach Skopje and, by the end of the day, they have relieved the cavalry and taken control of the road blocks, securing the French hold on the lines of communication. The mass of the XIth Army, some 60000 Bulgarians and 1500 Germans, cease combat and surrender, but the German HQ units escape to the north.

2023.06.02 00:52 emotional-opossum 2015 Honda Accord push start not always working
Hi all, I'm hoping someone can help me out here or at least provide some advice.
I have a 2015 Honda Accord that doesn't always like to start. When I press the button, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Most of the time it takes a few presses for the engine to start. On very rare occasions, it starts on the first press. This started as such a rare thing- every now and then it would take a second try to push it, but it's getting to the point that I'm pressing it five or six times before it actually turns over.
Over the winter the push start stopped working entirely. We called triple a thinking we'd need it towed to a mechanic, but the triple a guy showed up, tested the battery, and said it was just a bad battery and that I didn't need to waste my money at a mechanic. I later found out that the original battery hadn't been replaced in almost 8 years, so it was a miracle that it was still working at all. Everyone recommended batteries plus to me because of the great customer service. We went there, got the battery replaced, and the car was running perfect, always turning over on the first press. That only lasted a month or so, before it started to act up again. Eventually, it was starting to take three, four, even five tries to get it going. It was definitely worse in the cold, and we had a very long winter this year, so I assumed it was the just the weather.
I didn't drive it for a day or two over the weekend and when I went to turn it on Monday to get to work, the engine would not turn over. No matter how many times I pressed, it would not work for the life of me. That afternoon after I got home from work, I tried jumping it to no avail. We assumed the worse and figured it was the starter. However, we tried again this morning and got it going. I'm thinking we just didn't wait long enough for it to charge before trying to get it running.
This afternoon, it turned over on the first press. I thought it was safest to get the battery tested anyway, so we went to batteries plus. They tested the battery and said it was working fine. They had me turn it on and off a few times, and it was acting up again. It took two/three presses to get it going the couple times they had me turn it on and off. So then they blamed it on the alternator. They recommended a local alternator place. I called them, explained the situation and did my best to explain what batteries plus told me, and they said it probably isn't the alternator but that they'd look at it anyway. I am going in tomorrow morning, and hopefully they have some answers for me.
I'm not sure if it's batteries plus just not wanting to replace my battery (I imagine it's got to be under some kind of warranty, it's less than a year old), or what.
Yes, I have replaced the fob battery. Several times, actually, just to be absolutely sure (I've only ever really needed to replace it once, and when I did I had a dash light come on telling me that was needed).
I'm a little worried that the starter needs to be replaced, but I've been told that if it's an issue with the starter that jumping the car would do nothing. I've also read a lot of people saying that they've had the starter replaced, only for it to fail again weeks later.
It's very similar to what is happening in this video, but I've never had it start(?) to run. I have only ever had it make that click sound.
Honda Accord 2015 Push To Start Won't work on the first tryby u/Officialmo in Cartalk
Any help or advice is so greatly appreciated!
ETA: I'm not sure if this helps, but in the 4ish years I've been driving this car, I've had the brakes (or something to do with the brakes) replaced and the high pressure fuel pump replaced, nothing else super major.

2023.06.02 00:46 Ultim8_Lifeform Respect Clint Barton, Hawkeye! (Marvel Cinematic Universe)
"Clint. You should not be here."
"Really? I retire for, what, five minutes and it all goes to shit."
Clint Barton worked as one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s top agents for a number of years under the codename Hawkeye, being put on various assignments from keeping an eye on notable items like Mjolnir and the Tesseract to the mysterious Budapest mission where he recruit Natasha Romanov to S.H.I.E.L.D.. These experiences led to him becoming a founding member of the Avengers despite his own claims of just being a regular guy with a bow. Hawkeye worked with the Avengers for several years, from Ultron's attack to the superhero civil war that saw the group falling apart at the seams. However, his life as he knew it was snatched away after the invasion of Thanos, which saw 50% of all life in the universe being erased including Hawkeye's entire family. Hawkeye took up the alias of Ronin, a vigilante that roamed the globe in a vengeful rampage to kill the many criminals that had survived Thanos' snap. He eventually rejoined the Avengers after they discovered a way to bring back everyone that had been erased, but the guilt from what he had done as a result of his grief still weighed on him even after his family had been brought back. It wasn't until he met his future protégé Kate Bishop that Clint's faith in himself and his efforts as a superhero were restored.

2023.06.02 00:38 Uthred__Ragnarson Monitor not receiving a signal from GPU after Chipset drivers installed
I've planned to install new nvme ssd for PC and upgrade to Win11. First thing i did is updated the bios to latest version. Everything worked fine on same system so bios is not problem to eliminate. Second next day I started by installing ssd into PC. I started same system to check if it is working and yes, it worked so i started by installing fresh windows 11 on it. Done that and ofc first thing to do after installing windows is drivers. I've downloaded and installed AMD Chipset driver it asked to restart PC which i did and after that it was black screen.
I tried restarting, still not working. No signal on monitor, no led lights on keyboard.
I tried unplugging it from wall, changing ram slots, taking out CMOS battery, taking out both bootable drives and nothing still worked.
Only hint i got is keyboard gets light when i unplug Graphics card (which has light on).
Could it be gpu is malfunctioning the whole system? But how can chipset drivers affect GPU idk...
Best thing would be ofc to uninstall drivers, but how to do that when i can't access to anything on my pc since i don't have image. Is there a way i don't know. I would happily start from scratch but i don't have an idea how.

2023.06.02 00:34 xtremexavier15 TSWT 26 (pt 2)
The episode resumed with a shot of the Final Two holding the effigies their helpers had made as Chef wheeled the person formerly in a hazmat suit in a wheelchair, their suit traded in for a full body cast.
Izzy spoke up. "Are we actually going to throw our dummies into an active volcano without any safety? That sounds lethal, even for me."
"As the saying goes, 'No excruciating pain, no million dollar gain'," Chris told her, pulling out a briefcase as a reminder then promptly tossing it away. "To help you get those dummies to the top of the volcano, you can use the rewards your teams earned on your behalf in the Aftermath Lava Surfing challenge," he continued.
"Ezekiel won a wheelbarrow. Too bad he's out," he said, the camera panning the host at the base of the volcano as the wheelbarrow rolled down next to the host, "but Alejandro gets a baby stroller," the stroller rolled down next to the wheelbarrow, "and Izzy gets diddly squat."
"What?" Mal gaped.
"Mal," Chris said, "for winning the effigy challenge, you get a twenty-second head start. So, get going!"
"Toodles," Mal said, running off with the wooden statue in his arms.
"At least this dummy's light," Izzy said, carrying it in her arms.
Mal tossed his dummy into his baby stroller as soon as he came to Chris, then ran up the slope chuckling as it did not break.
Chris watched him go with his usual smile, then turned to watch Izzy as she walked up. "Shouldn't I have the wheelbarrow if Ezekiel's not competing?" Izzy said.
"Sure, why not?" Chris said, watching Izzy put her dummy in her wheelbarrow and push it up the hill.
The scene cut to Mal running up the mountainside path at a decent rate. "It's been a long ride," he told himself, "but I'm going to claim the prize and live life comfortably!"
The camera panned down to Izzy, still pushing her effigy up the slope and panting heavily. "Why am I getting tired now of all places?" she said to herself.
"Having trouble?" Mal called out mockingly. "Maybe if you continue to run like a freak of nature, you might get to the top in time to see me win the money. But I doubt it!" he laughed, running off again.
The path soon leveled off, he passed a few bushes, then saw what was ahead and frantically skidded to a halt. He stopped right on the edge of a bubbling lava pool. "What the inferno?" he asked, the camera getting an overhead shot of the lava right before it flared up, forcing Mal to dive away with his rather flammable dummy.
Chris chuckled off-screen, and the camera zoomed out to show him and Chef standing on the other side of the lava lake. "Yoo hoo, over he~ere!" he called in a light and airy voice, waving to the malice filled man. A series of stepping stones spanned the gap between the two sides, but hanging over it from a large wooden frame were several heavy objects: from the left to right were a log, a grand piano, a safe, a simple weight, a purple armchair, a metal cage, and a bomb. The ropes holding the objects in the air ran along the framework and down to a structure near Chris and Chef, where each individual rope was tied around a long log.
"Check out the look on his face," Chris told his assistant as the camera zoomed in on them and the two men high-fived.
Izzy finally arrived at the other end of the lava pool, stopping when she saw it. "Now what?" she said in awed disbelief.
"The only way to the top of the volcano," Chris said as the camera panned across a close-up of the stepping stones, "is past this river of lava," he pointed down at the bubbling rock as the camera reached him again. "Those rewards probably won't be too helpful," he added, Mal and Izzy frowning as they stood by with their respective dummies.
"All you have to do is hop across these stepping stones," the host continued, moving over closer to the end of the path. "Easy-peasy, hot and cheesy!" he said as the lava flared up again. "Buu~uut," he added impishly as the camera panned across the hanging objects, "we've rigged a few booby traps to, that's right!"
"Make things more interesting," the two finished in annoyance.
"Chef," Chris turned to his assistant, "a booby demo, if you please!"
Chef took out a machete then turned around and chopped the first rope. The freed end quickly slid back through the wooden frame, and the log dropped onto the first stepping stone, broke, and fell into the lava with a burst of flame and a splatter of molten rock. Izzy raised an eyebrow and Mal gasped in surprise.
"Yeah, you really don't want to get hit by those," Chris told them. "Your helpers can either keep them secure," he continued, turning around and motioning to the two pairs that were standing by the tied-up ropes, "or send them falling. It's your call. Aaaand, go!"
Mal got moving first, picking up his dummy out of the stroller and running from stone to stone. Izzy lagged behind, but she still kept up.
"Chop the ropes! Now!" Mal commanded, and the shot cut over to Noah, Eva, Sky, and Shawn on the far side of the river.
"Team E-Scope, don't let them win!" Izzy cried out.
"Hold on!" Sky stopped everyone. "I don't want to fight anyone, or help out Mal."
"Me too," Shawn agreed. "I'm just here because I have too."
"I said cut the ropes!" Mal shouted forcefully.
"You two are right. Let's leave them at each other's throats," Noah said.
"Or better yet, we sabotage Mal," Eva offered.
"I'm already ahead of you!" Shawn grinned and grabbed a machete. He chopped down the rope holding the couch, and Mal took notice and jumped onto the next stone.
"Don't even think about messing with me!" Mal growled.
"Can't hear you!" Shawn mocked him as he cut a series of ropes. A bank vault, piano, and cage all fell down, but Mal effortlessly avoided all of them and eventually made it to the end.
"How were you able to avoid all of those?" Noah wondered. "That cage should've contained you."
"Mike's personalities can come in handy. I'll be taking my leave now," Mal laughed and made his way to the volcano.
Izzy reached the four helpers. "Welp, that was a bust," she griped.
"Don't just stand around complaining," Eva said. "Go to the volcano."
"And what about you guys?" Izzy asked.
"We'll catch up with you two with the helicopter Chris drove us here in," Sky added.
Izzy's face turned into determination. "Here I go! Time to stop the biggest, most baddest villain in TD history!" She let out a battlecry and dashed hastily towards the volcano.
The scene changed to a long-distance upward shot of the volcano, soon cutting to the top as the camera panned across the non-competitors, gathered in a sweaty and sweltering mass on the rim of the volcano's crater.
An upward pan of Chris holding the million-dollar suitcase revealed him standing happily in a cool breeze, the shot zooming out to show it being caused by a giant electric fan blowing air over a large ice cube being held on an intern's back. Several more ice cubes were stacked around the area, and were already beginning to melt.
"So...," Chris said to Chef, the pilot standing beside him, "know of any season three wrap parties?"
Chef didn't answer, and instead averted his gaze and walked away whistling in a very suspicious manner.
Chris frowned at him, but his expression quickly changed to excitement as he looked out over the edge of the volcano. "And here they come!" he announced as Mal was shown racing up the path with his dummy.
The shot cut to the edge of the crater as the dummy was thrown up first, followed by the villain leaping up with a dark smile on his face. He caught the dummy and grinned even more.
"Looking for this?" Chris asked as the shot cut to the million dollar case.
Mal let out a dry chuckle as he made his way to the edge of the crater.
"Stop right there!" Izzy's voice said, causing him to pause and turn around mid-way.
"Izzy," Mal said as the camera cut to the girl at the roof of the crater next to her dummy. "Can't you see I'm about to beat you? Just spare us the trouble and let me win!"
"If there's anyone who deserves to be competing against me, it should be Mike!" Izzy argued back.
"Mike is nothing to me!" Mal shouted furiously. "He should be the one left behind, not me!" That was when he inhaled sharply as his head got closer to the camera.
Suddenly, Mal began falling and landing in the pink grounds of Mike's brain.
"Urgh." Mal grunted before his eyes widened and he saw that his tower was practically rubble at this point. "Impossible. Where's my tower?" Mal asked furiously.
"It's gone Mal. It's gone for good," Mike smirked victoriously as he entered, much to Mal's anger.
"How were you able to push that button? I had that reinforced so your puny arms could not penetrate it," Mal asked angrily.
"I'm not half as weak as you think I am. It's time to end this," Mike glared at the evil alter who smirked fiendishly.
"Very well," Mal said with sadistic glee, "This should only take ten seconds." Soon, Mal and Mike charged at each other fiercely and began punching and kicking each other with so much ferocity.
Meanwhile, at the top of the volcano, Mike and Mal were having such a gigantic fight that Mike's body was thrashing itself violently much to everyone's horror.
"What is he doing?!" Owen asked in concern.
Heather stood in front of Cody protectively.
"Surrender already, you peon!" Mal grunted angrily as Mike's body continued to thrash violently.
"N-never!" Mike said confidently as he continued to claw at himself.
Noah gasped at the scene. "Mike's fighting Mal for control of his body!" Noah realized.
Inside Mike's mind, Mal tackled Mike down as the latter struggled to get himself off of the evil alter.
"Look at you, so pitiful and pathetic!" Mal hissed viciously, "You were a fool to challenge me. It's not like your friends will ever forgive you for this. How will they see you now that they know I exist?"
Mike seemed to be in thought about Mal's words but chose not to let them get to him. "I won't let you win this!" Mike raised his foot to kick Mal in the kiwis, causing Mal to release him from his hold out of instinct.
Mike pushed Mal back and began punching him, trying to keep him down but Mal did not look like he was giving in.
Back at the top of the volcano, everyone was anxiously watching the fight unfold.
"What are we gonna do?!" Sadie said in horror.
Sky seemed to be in deep thought before smiling. "We have to rally Mike on! Show him that he's not alone in this!"
"I'm on it," Shawn nodded before speaking up. "Mike! It's me, Shawn! I just want to let you know that no one is mad at you about Mal's actions!"
"All of us are logical enough to separate Mal from Mike. It's just common sense!" Noah smiled encouragingly.
"We're all rooting for you to kick Mal's butt!" Eva added happily.
"We know you can do it," Ella encouraged.
"Mike! I just want you to know that you're my best friend and I can't imagine life without you! I know it may seem rough in there but please, we all have your back!" Sky said encouragingly.
Back in his mind, Mike smiled warmly as he heard this and Mal got up, all tattered and beaten. "Those nobodies… are idiots. I'm a part of you and they WILL see that!" Mal cried out in fury.
"You're wrong Mal! You may be a part of my mind, but everything you ever did was all you and no one else!" Mike spoke in determination.
"You always wanted me to rely on you. To make yourself feel important. That desire turned you bitter and hateful and led you to who you are today. You wanted me to feel scared and feel I needed you to be tough, but guess what? I have friends up there. Friends who have stuck by my side even when they learned my disorder before I could properly confess, friends who stuck by me even if they voted me off in season one for the others' behavior, and friends who still stay beside me despite everything you ever did to me!"
Mike's body began glowing white, and for the first time in Mal's life, he felt genuine fear in his eyes. "No… you can't do this to me. No one will ever cross you with me in charge," Mal pleaded desperately, "I'm a part of you."
Mike just narrowed his eyes. "That's true. I can't get rid of you, but I can seal you enough to where you can never cause this much trouble EVER AGAIN!"
Soon, Mike used his hands to shoot a powerful white blast which Mal tried to resist but in the end, it was hopeless and he was blasted into the deepest corners of Mike's mind.
"IT'S MY TIME!!!! MMMMIIIINNNNNEEEEEEE!" Mal cried out in horror as his voice faded into the distance.
Back at the volcano, Mike opened his eyes and grabbed his head. "Wh-Where am I?"
"Mike! He's back!" Ezekiel cried out happily before Topher stopped Ezekiel from going to help him up.
"Wait, this could be a trap," Topher said sternly.
"Let me try something," Duncan told the group before whistling 'In the Hall of the Mountain King,' and all he got was a blank stare from Mike.
"It's really me guys. I swear," Mike smiled encouragingly.
"Mike! You're back!" Sky cried out as she embraced the comedian, to which Shawn, Noah, Dawn, Ella, Sadie, Lindsay, and Cody were all quick to join in.
"Guys, I am so sorry about everything Mal did," Mike apologized profusely. "I should have told you all about him after last season, but I thought he was no longer a problem and-"
"It's okay. We know you never meant for this to happen," Shawn smiled at his friend.
"I promise. I won't forget to let you all know about my problems," Mike pledged.
"Great to have you back," Chris said with an unamused look on his face, "but can one of you toss your sacrifice in the volcano already?"
"The one next to you," Topher told Mike as Izzy dragged her dummy. "If you toss it in the lava before Izzy does, then you win the million dollars."
Mike and Izzy locked eyes, then he grabbed his dummy and both ran as fast as they could to the edge of the volcano.
Quickly forming a plan, Izzy slid to a stop and hurled her dummy. It flew through the sky like a bullet, and moments later, it soared into the lava unceremoniously, and aside from a small splash-back that the Peanut Gallery quickly dodged, nothing happened.
"Oh yes!!!" Izzy boomed. "I won! I won! I won!" she cheered, jumping up and down in glee.
"And that's a cool million for Izzy," Chris told the audience. "The winner of Total Drama World Tour!" The contestants all applauded and cheered for the winner.
"Way to go, Izzy!" Owen cheered out loud.
"Nice job, eh!" Ezekiel clapped his hands.
Chris opened up the briefcase for Izzy, who marveled at the dollar bills inside. "It's so beautiful!" she exclaimed as she took the briefcase and hugged it tightly.
"You worked hard for the money, Izzy," Mike said as he walked over to congratulate her. "I'm just glad to be back in control again."
"You're welcome, and stay you, Mike," Izzy shook hands with Mike.
"Ohh, you didn't throw any pineapples in the volcano, did you?" an unfamiliar voice asked, the camera panning right a little ways just as two elderly Hawaiian men in flowery skirts and leis walked up.
"There are signs everywhere!" the other said.
The camera cut to the Peanut Gallery all stepping away to show several signs with crossed-out pineapples on them.
"Oh yeah," Chris said blankly. "They really ruined the shot, so we put the human wall there."
A third old Hawaiian man came over to reveal another sign. "Don't you know what happens when pineapples meet lava?"
It was then that the volcano shook and rumbled, a long-distance shot of it showing a few reddish streaks forming along the outer edge of the crater.
"Uh-oh," Chris said, gaining the camera's attention as the volcano was shaking, "Didn't see that one coming. Anywho," he chuckled before taking a deep breath and yelling "RRRUUUUNNNNNN!"
The volcano was shown from a distance again, the smoke billowing from the top turning into a full-blown eruption of fire.
Back at the top, the three Hawaiian men went running back towards the path down, followed by Chris, Izzy, Mike, and the rest of the contestants as lava began to cover the screen.
It parted as the scene cut to the base of the volcano, the former contestants running and screaming across the beach as flaming rocks rained down from above and the lava took over the screen again.
"See you next season I guess," Chris said as the camera cut to him as fire continued to fall. "Maybe with a whole new cast, 'cause let's face it – these guys are probably gonna melt," he laughed.
"Until next time," the host said, his voiced strained as the scene cut to him standing up in front of the sky. "I'm Chris McLean, and this has been Total! Drama!" The camera zoomed out to reveal that him and Chef were now aboard the old Boat of Losers, but the host's outtro was interrupted by a sudden object. Both men looked up, and one of the rocks, entirely on fire, was shown rocketing towards the boat.
Chris and Chef ducked to either side as it landed, punching a hole in the ship with its crash. The Boat of Losers began to sink, and the rest of the cast treading water nearby laughed as the two adults went under.
Their mirth was short-lived, however, and quickly turned to terror and they swam away screaming as large flaming rocks started raining down upon them once again, and the footage cut to static.
(Roll the Credits)
The shot featured flaming rocks hitting the ocean and whatnot. The rocks caused some splashes, but they weren't big enough to fully cover the screen.
The camera panned to the right to show Ezekiel Clone on his raft. A big smile formed on his face as he drank his coconut and watched the lava explosion. Noticing the camera, he gave it a wave before it faded to black.

2023.06.02 00:23 DepecheMode92 Fair value for my 16 328i M Sport?
| || |
Hey guys, you are the F30 experts so wanted your opinion. I’m debating on selling my 2016 328i Alpine White on Coral Red and moving into a G20 in a few months. I bought it at 15k miles and it’s at 84k miles now. I have all service records and it’s been a reliable car, CPO up in September. It has a few dings, curb rash, front bumper scrapes, but interior is immaculate and I’ve always garaged it. It has M-sport package, premium package, technology package, Harmon Kardon, and LED head lights. Every option pretty much except heated seats, and it’s a California N26 car. I’m seeing zero option cars with similar mileage list for around $18k, but I figured this must be worth more with the extensive options. I appreciate your opinions! submitted by DepecheMode92 to F30 [link] [comments]
2023.06.02 00:22 DigitalInk24 Advice on dealing with extremely antisocial roommates?
There is this guy, not a bad person, of course. But, I can not help but feel frustrated every once in a while... To be noted, we're basically 5 guys living in 1 room and sharing a bathroom and a tiny "kitchen area"( shittiest college dorm possible, ik), so there has to be at least the bare minimum of social interaction to maintain some level of cooperation. But he... well, he just refuses to interact, with little to no exception. He doesn't ask others if the bathroom is free when we're all getting ready in the morning, he just rushes to it for a shower or whatever avoiding eye contact, even if he's got classes in 2h but the rest of us are already late or have to leave but just need a quick face washing a tooth brushing. He stays up till extremely late, like 5AM sometimes. He's always wearing his headphones, and, doesn't matter if it's like 2AM, cause he's gonna casually turn on the light in the kitchen area( it's right next to my bed, lol) and rummage through his stuff( maybe drop something too, he's quite clumsy tbh). Also, when he's exiting the room or entering, it's like a jump scare. No footstep sounds, no carefully opening the door, it's like he grabs the doorknob and instantly slams it open( it scares everyone, lol). You also can't ask him of anything, cause he's straight up gonna ignore you if you try to grab his attention. Like there is this recent thing where our bathroom had some nasty pipe leaking problem, so I reported it to the administration to fix it, but the thing is, the whole place was a mess( and I really mean it, it's a cramped room full of guys after all). So, not to look like some hobos from the jungle, I suggested the others to at least sweep an area of their choice and mop it. Well, all but 2 people didn't contribute. One who had classes and was already late( totally understandable, don't blame him) and this antisocial guy( who could have but pretended like I didn't say a word). He also doesn't respond to any messages, he just gives u the "seen". Like the other day when me and this other roommate had to go out look for a new led tube for the bathroom and texted everybody about it so that they're okay with splitting the costs( broke ass students, lol), They all replied except this antisocial guy, who just left me in "seen"... He still hasn't contributed to the costs :/ I didn't get to see him since yesterday later in the day when he came back very briefly and left. It's a weird situation to be honest, cause at first when I met this guy I thought he was a cool guy, but now it's like he gave up on even trying to do the bare minimum of human interaction with me or with anybody.

2023.06.02 00:20 NotNiko15 [Demo] Modern Cosmic Horrors chapter 1
Modern Cosmic Horrors
Interstellar Terran Print, 2145
Chapter 1: Predator Dream
This story was made in collaboration with an arxur. Big thanks big guy.
Memory Transmission Subject: Vinro, Arxur Cattle Farmer
Date [Standardized Human Time]: May 2130
I have been having nightmares lately. It is an uncommon fact among Federation species that arxur can feel fear, and we want it to stay that way. We are not excused when having nightmares. We are expected to overcome them, however it’s much easier to run from it and wake up. It is in our best interest to be unnoticed and pretend to sleep. Waking up screaming is infantile and it’s greatly frowned upon.
These nightmares are unordinary. I’ve been dreaming the same nightmare for weeks. I am a preyed upon. Something unspoken is chasing me through the forest. The fear of being hunted is clawing on my mind, but not enough to wake up. I feel exhaustion in my dreams, but I always manage to pull through until the dreaming sleep phase ends, and I eventually wake up.
I work as a cattle farmer, I rear venlil cattle. Their meat is highly valued, especially scrag and shoulders, which are soft. Their legs are definitely stronger, but it’s nothing for our jaws, and there is more meat to harvest. I only feed them grass and leaves. If they ever wanted a fruit, they would have to work hard to earn it. They always fail though. I suppose the grass and leaves diet doesn’t give them enough energy to work efficiently, but my colleagues just marginalize it saying the prey is just too weak for our duties. I knew who was correct, they lack nutrients, but I wasn’t willing to provide it to them. I don’t care, and I can’t afford being ostracized.
As usual I had the same nightmare. I could have sworn they are worse with each day. It was suddenly interrupted as I was awoken in the dead of night by a noise coming from the pens. Keeping my nightmares in mind I can not say that I hold a grudge against the cattle for waking me up. I simply stood up and went to investigate the noise.
The night was rather cold and the stars were unobstructed by clouds and light pollution. The farm was surrounded by trees. When I entered the pen, I saw a prey laying on the ground, twitching in its dream. Its welfare was negligible, but a pitiful picture nonetheless. It mumbled audibly, without a doubt it was responsible for the sudden scream. I kicked it in the chest lightly with the intention of waking it up.
It suddenly opened its eyes and rested one of them on me. The sight of a hulking arxur was probably not as bad as its nightmare, because it stopped shuddering. Was it relieved to be still alive? I leaned over with dominance to emphasize my following command.
“Stop making noise.” I said with a bland but cold voice. I was good at imposing fear by being devoid of emotions, but even now, the prey did not freeze, but silently backed away a little. “Go back to sleep” I added, I paid no attention to its abnormal bravery.
“No! Please!” It bursted suddenly. “The nightmares will hunt me again!” The other cattle started waking up and a noise soon filled the air. It was the moment when I finally felt wrath. I kicked the culprit in its temple, knocking it out. The chatter soon went silent after that presentation.
Despite working at the cattle farm, I am not allowed to snack on the cattle. The amount of cattle must not change without being recorded. If the meat is harvested, we take records. If it’s punished by death, duly noted. If prey escapes, it must be found, dead or alive. If it dies from sickness, everyone must know. Snacking on cattle in the middle of the night is considered theft, even if I wanted to give an example to the remaining.
When I left the pen and was about to close it, I saw it twitching again. This time more erratic. It looked like a seizure. More noises started to fill the air. I sighed, picked up the prey and headed to the cold store. If it survives the seizure, the number of cattle won’t change. If not, at least the meat won’t start spoiling and it will be noted as natural death.
I opened the doors and a cool atmosphere started to escape the room. The red bulb lit up the room, there were chunks of meat hanging from the ceiling. I dropped the twitching prey on the ground and started observing it. It was slowly but surely crawling to the closest wall. Then it started climbing up, backed up against the wall until it stood up. It was then when I snapped out of the trance. The prey was supposed to be unconscious, yet it stood there, piercing me with its big, glassy eye. The red dot reflected in it. I decided to end this charade and took a step, when it launched towards the meat chunk and drowned its dull teeth in it. The venlil tried to tear a piece of meat, aiding with its tiny claws. When it finally managed to get a morsel, it gulped it entirely and faced me.
“Go back to sleep,” It said, in a fluent arxurian.
I recognized the venlil as a thread and bared my teeth in order to charge, but when it came to this, the venlil dived under my legs and ran straight to the pens. I hurried behind it and was met with a horrible sight. There were venlil killing each other, ripping their windpipes off. Some were shouting and crying. One of them came to me and started begging me for help and to release them from their disease. Predator disease, as they called it. On cue the predatory venlil pounced on the pleading prey and tore him apart. It was then, when I noticed the gate to pens was open and all venlil started to flee. The predators were focused on me this time, I could count at least ten. I thought I was dreaming. Was the unspoken oppressor the venlil all this time? Was the mare that hunted venlil changing them into predators? Will my mare turn me into a prey when I go to sleep? I was frozen. I did not care about the consequences of showing fear, I was overwhelmed by it. I started running deep into the forest. When I was exhausted from running, I collapsed by the tree and zoned out.
I woke up at dawn. I knew I was afraid in my dream, but I could not remember any details. My legs were hurting, like I’ve been walking all night. After resting and examining the surroundings I realized I was completely lost.
I was wandering through the forest, analyzing what happened last night. The venlil were dead, some of them. The rest probably fled. The carcasses will be harvested for meat that needs to be eaten quickly. Living cattle can be stored longer than harvested meat. If I return to the farm, not only will they take me for a lunatic, but I will be charged for wasting food and executed. By contrast, venlil who fled will be tracked and used for breeding to fill the shortage, no harm will be done to them for a long time. I will be hunted by my people.
And my dreams.

2023.06.02 00:15 asimpleguypassingby Just educated Guesses
Hey, after reading chapter 1085 I have few educateed GUESSES
- Imu/Mu is Uranus and is the commander of "Space".
everything from a design (pitch black) to the power she display (the attack of lulusia) seems to go along with the idea that she is link with the power of the sky and probably Uranus. Another interesting point is that Uranus, the greek mythological deity, is known as the primordial Sky deity. He is also considered as the commander of the stars. This is a shared trait with Imu that is litterally the Commander of the 5 elder stars ; the Gorosei (litteraly 五 (5) 老 (old, accient) 星(star) ). This also led me to believe that...
- The gorosei does not exist (let me explain...)
If Imu is indeed the bearer of Uranus, there is a possibility that the Gorosei does not actually exist and is rather a manifestation of Imu's power. A little bit like big Mom and the way she gives life to her hat or her saber. How would Imu be doing this? I dont know...
Plus, during the chapter 1085 during the attack of sabo, We see that the gorosei completely transforms, with monstruous aspects and pitch black taints, just like Imu and her devil tail/ arrow shape attack. Demon fruits? maybe but I don't think so.
- the "D" particule is not a name (per say)
But rather a self administered mark of rebelion against Imu. when Imu explain that their difficult situation is due to Lili's fault and that she wonders if it's was a well thought out plan from Lili, the D in the signature of the letter confirms that Lili willingfully betrayed Imu. If Lili were inherently of D lineage, Imu would have probably known it from the start. To me, it means that she deliberately added the D particule to her name at the time, when writing the letter (hence the confirmation for Imu that she has been betrayed).
Also in the latest chapter, we can see a flashback of Sabo where he notes the weird coincidencal presence of the D in the name of both Luffy and Ace. Ace highlights that it doesn't matter and that he might as well add a D to his name. To me, this is a hint from Oda to let us know that you can just casually add the letter your name. It's less about an heritage in blood, than an heritage of will in rebelion.
In that Idea, the D serves as the sign of defiance against the power in place, and might as well represent the moon or the Rising Sun
of the dawn.
*Bonus* i will add that this last point fits the sementic used by the gorosei when talking to Imu "The Light
that need to be estinguished"; here, I think that the light simply refers to the D particule.
