2023.06.09 19:14 NervousCrackers Toy spinning obsession

My little one is 10 months old.
He loves spinning things. Those suction fidget spinner toys, the wheels on cars etc. He will play with other things too but he definitely loves to spin things.
Had a HV review today and she didn’t seem worried as he is developing well. He can crawl and cruise and chat and clap. No pointing or waving yet.
I dr googled (stupid) which indicated it may be an early indicator of ASD.
Anyone experienced a baby/ toddler who loved spinning toys? Anxious FTM!

Beast isn't broken and move is good (you're probably just doing it wrong). Guide below (CL6656)

Home brew move and bounce
I hit infinite for the 4th time today with a home brew move/bounce deck that is not only strong but also really fun to play. There is a lot of chatter on this sub that move isn't viable and the nerf to Beast broke him and to me those things couldn't be farther from the truth. The challenge with move is that cards are moving left and not right, with the addition of ghost spider along with strange you can move cards are all over the board multiple times. This deck is also unpredictable, I lost count of how many times I dodged Shang Chi by moving my Vulture and the right time.
Turn 1: Play kitty. If no Kitty then setup your first move with Iron Fist (you need torch or vulture in hand)
Turn 2: Either move torch or wait on vulture. If I have miles in hand and don't have torch or vulture sometimes it's worth bouncing kitty to get a 1/5 on turn 3 with Miles. You can also play Angela.
You can also trigger Angela with vulture or torch and have fist move those cards out of that location, adding power and allowing you to buff Angela more with additional triggers.
Turn 3: Ghost spider to move your torch. Play kitty into Angela. If you had to wait on vulture you may just be fisting vulture for the first time.
Turn 4: This is really where things can get kind of crazy, you have lots of options. Continue buffing Angela with Kitty and look at moving your torch or vulture with Strange. Ideally you are moving from left to right in case you want to Heimdall left turn 6. You want your torch to end up in the same lane as iron fist because you want to beast up torch, fist and kitty on this turn. Beasting up any move card is really what you want to prioritize whether it is ghost or fist.
Turn 5: Set up cards for 6. If you have Heimdall and Monkey in hand you need to decide what you want your turn 6 to be. You can play Monkey on 5 with iron fist, kitty, torch and cloak especially if playing Heimdall will hurt you (think Fisk Tower).
Turn 6: Heimdall and a 0 cost 8-10 power kitty along with moving something into the cloak lane. You want your torch and vulture in separate lanes though so you don't over commit power to one lane.
Just like any deck this does have it's limitations and it's strengths. There is nothing you can do about Galactus, just retreat, lose one cube and move on. It's tough sledding against High Evo Lockjaw, it's usually too much power to contend with. Wave is annoying but not unbeatable especially if you played Cloak on 5. High Evo Lock down is only a problem if they are using Professor X in the middle lane.
As I was typing this I was like damn I hope this makes sense, if you have any questions just ask and i will do my best to answer as I am sure there is something I missed as there is so much nuance toa deck like this. Happy snapping!

2023.06.09 19:13 jeffweemademedoit I’m leaving my boyfriend and he has no idea.

a rambling vent.
t-minus 20-something days until I am free from my adulterous and abusive partner of 2.5 years. I should be excited; I should feel empowered and strong. I know I am logically doing the right thing. Everyone in my social circles, to whom I’ve disclosed my situation (friends, managers, one relative so far), have all agreed — get the hell out.
In fact, some are even amazed that I stayed so long even after finding out about the dating & hookup apps, the mysterious transactions, the emails soliciting sex work from backpages… Truthfully I’ve been clawing my way to financial independence for the past year since I realized what he was doing. I figured, yes I know, but maybe he’ll change. And if not, I will just fake not knowing and take the time I need to be prepared to move out so I’m not homeless. And from there, it took a long time for me to wake up. Because it wasn’t just the cheating, it was the screaming, berating, the few times that he had shoved me or lightly slapped me on the cheek, the sexual objectification, lies to hide his drug use.
One day in the car, after he made another comment on how awful I am at driving (a skill that I had been confident in for my whole life — I grew up participating in motorsports), the words just fell out of my mouth. I said:
“I never thought of myself as anything other than capable until I met you.”
He brushed it off. In that moment, the words were more jarring to me than anything else.
I am a shell of who I was. I have no confidence; my memory is shit, I feel so dumb when I used to be very academic; I second-guess everything, I can’t even talk without worrying what someone is thinking about what I am saying; I weigh more than I ever have; I feel and look horrible. But all of these feelings are in complete contrast to what I’ve done in the past 2 years. I learned a new trade that is now supporting me with ancillary income, I switched professional career paths and increased my salary by 20%, and established 2 separate circles of friends (I haven’t made new friends since 2019).
I used to pride myself on my independence. I used to think I didn’t need anyone to survive on my own. I used to value my level of integrity and character. My childhood was absolutely destroyed by infidelity; it still haunts my mother to this day. How could I let this happen to me?
Now I just feel like… I’m the one sneaking around, making these plans to leave him? Everything is sent in stone. I won’t reverse my course. I paid my deposit, set up my accounts, paid first month’s rent. But I now I feel like the bad guy. I feel like I’m overreacting. Are people going to think, “why didn’t you confront him first?” But what’s the point in that when someone made a pattern of cheating on me since 6 months in? And to top it off, I realized a few weeks ago that he is also been meeting up with and talking to “The Ex” (the one who everyone said to not worry about; they were finally done - he found me) off and on for at least this year, and I think last year too.
I should be looking forward to my apartment and putting pride in keeping things clean, and decorating, and enjoying my own safe space. It’s an absolutely beautiful space, brand new. But I’m dreading it all. I don’t know what the next chapter is supposed to look like. I just feel like an almost-30 year old failure leaving a relationship that I thought would be “It,” that I was in denial of every glaringly crimson red flag. It’s like I can’t even trust myself to date again. And why would I want to. And am I even going to be interesting or pretty or young enough to meet someone else when I’m ready?
And then, not like it matters, but he’s just gonna go off smirking to everyone that I was The Bad Guy that just Up And Left for No Good Reason. And that I was Lazy because I would play video games after working & cooking us dinner, that I didn’t want to pay the mortgage (I paid half even when I was part-time looking for a new job, at my own financial detriment, when he makes over 80k-100k) or invest in furniture for his house, that I didn’t do XYZ in bed (even tho he only lasts 2 minutes), that I didn’t do all of the chores, that he “bought me” a car (after he forced me to sell mine; and then made it so I paid this car loan in his name so I was financially trapped.)
I hope in another universe, there’s a better version of this man and we are together living happily as equals. But that’s not this universe, and it could never be.
Factually I should be happy. I am leaving a man who was abusive, degrading, unfaithful in so many ways, and manipulative. Honestly, even ONE of those things, is more than enough reason for most people to leave. I just don’t feel that way. I’m terrified of what he’s going to think or say to me when I tell him that I have had enough of his behavior and that I’m moving out (I’m pushing this off until a few days before my move-in date so I can pack & leave ASAP.) He knows the exact thing to say to tear me down. He is going to be completely blindsided. if you got this far, thanks for reading. I am wondering if any of this is relatable to someone else out there, and if anything I have done is respectable or commendable. I feel like a coward.

2023.06.09 19:11 Jazz__maintains7 Breaking down the 23-24 schedule / projecting wins and losses https://www.tennesseetitans.com/news/titans-release-2023-schedule-and-it-includes-two-primetime-games-at-pittsburgh-o

Here’s what I think about our chances to win each game . Week 1 we lose to the saints without Alvin kamara. still won’t be a breeze. We beat the saints 2 years ago in Tennessee. Saints have a stout run defense and I’m not sure how much our secondary has improved. I like D Carr with that new receiving core. I would say saints win at home week 1. 0-1
Week 2 . The chargers don’t strike any fear into me at all however it will be a great test for our o- line because they have bosa and Mack as their pass attack . Unless those two wreck the game we should be able to win our home opener week 2. 1-1
Week 3 . The browns have a lot of unknowns. How good will Deshaun Watson be after a full off season ? Derrick Henry said nick Chubb is the best RB in the league. Can he outplay him ? I would think so . Another game that should be won in the trenches I predict we win 2-1
Week 4 . I really want to beat Cincinnati. We owe them for last year when they completed dominated us and for the divisional round loss in 2022. That being said I don’t think we will win . 2-2
Week 5 . We own the colts enough said . We get the job done on the road in this game . 3-2
Week 6 . We travel to London to see the new look ravens with Odell Beckham Jr. It would be nice to get a win going into the bye week. This one could go either way. I see us losing by one score . 3-3
Bye week
Week 8 - Arthur smith and the falcons come to town and play hard , they give us a good game but we grind out a victory coming off our bye week fresh . 4-3
Week 9 / TNF in Pittsburgh / it will be a short week for us so this one will depend on health . We won TNF last year in Lambeau. I like our chances in this one . 5-3
Week 10 . We go on the road to Tampa Bay. Im not very worried about their offense and their defense wasn’t great last year. This is a team we can beat . 6-3
Week 11. Derrick Henry still owns the Jags. 7-3
Week 12. We come back home and host Bryce young and baby panthers. We lose this one at home . 7-4
Week 13 . The colts come to town and we get the job done . It won’t be pretty but a win is a win 8-4
Week 14 . MNF in Miami . The last time we saw the dolphins we beat them at home in 2021 . It was a blowout and the dolphins were the hottest team in the league at the time . We won’t win this game unless we can consistently get pressure on Tua. If not , tyreek hill , waddle and geisiki will kill our secondary . I think we lose this one . 8-5
Week 15 . I actually think the Texans will be competitive this year and we split games with them. This one is at home and it should be a win 9-5
Week 16. We go on the road to face the Seahawks who were absolute world beaters last year . They match up great against us. We lose on the road to Geno smith and company 9-6
Week 17 . We travel to Houston for a pivotal divisional game . It can go either way but based on my prediction we lose . 9-7
Week 18. Our playoff fate hangs in the balance once again this time we are fully healthy and we host the jaguars . We get our revenge and make the playoffs as a wild card . AFC champs once again . 10-7
What do you guys think ?

2023.06.09 19:11 FormalLanguage6425 Destination 225 Cadet Pathway Overview as of Summer 2023

I'm currently in the cadet pathway for Southwest's Destination 225 program here in the Phoenix area at CAE. I just wanted to give a quick update on what things are looking like here for any prospective students and people who might be considering this program. I came in with 40 hours of flight time and a bachelors degree for reference. I'll list the pro's and con's as I can see them.
  1. This program is designed to be legit. Quite literally from day 1 you'll be learning RRM (SWA's version of CRM) from a handful of SWA pilots, and they'll come back every few months to teach more about RRM and SWA culture and lifestyle. The guys they pick to be the mentors for the cadets are super awesome and very down to earth, and they're usually very open to communication with you. Brad Monda is the head of the program and he truly busts his ass to keep this program afloat and constantly improving.
  2. You'll be flying some pretty nice and pampered planes to train on. At CAE every plane the SWA guys will fly is a full glass cockpit. Farming G1000 and a glass standby instrument as well.
  3. Much like any other flight training at home or in a school, if you're willing to bust your ass and fly full time you'll be in and out of this program in no time, barring any delays (I'll cover this much more in a bit).
  4. The school itself (CAE) is generally pretty good about student concerns and keeping you informed about any changes they make to training, but they aren't perfect.
  5. The facilities you'll be training at (no matter the location) are truly top notch with access to simulators, a plethora of instructors, and people who care.
The biggest problem right now with this program doesn't have anything to do with CAE or SWA itself, but thats not to say the program as it stands right now isn't perfect.
-The biggest problem is delays. Up until Summer 2023, if you weren't in a SWA affiliated university program or transitioning from the military, the ONLY place you could get the training done was CAE, and they've been hit pretty hard by delays, on top of some other glaring issues.
- The first of which is just an overall lack of FAA examiners to conduct checkrides, leading to about a 5 week wait of just being inactive from flying. They say the national average is 3 months so we're lucky, but I can't attest to how true that is, so I've taken it with a grain of salt.
- The second is the in-house training delays. They have cited abnormal weather as the big driver of the flight syllabus being so slow, but I don't find that answer satisfying at all. They advertise about 4 months to finish the private pilot portion of the syllabus, but not 1 person from my class of 17 finished by that time frame and some are looking at closer to 6 or 7 months, not including the 5 weeks of check ride inactivity.
- LOTS of students are very irritated with the time AND cost overruns. In the monthly town hall meetings with SWA and CAE, questions about this are brought up frequently. While it is possible to have a part time job on the side of training, the school adamantly dissuades this since you must be available for training at time of day, and you don't know your schedule until the night before. That practically makes it impossible to have a job that works on a schedule so you're left with Uber or DoorDash-like jobs that you can do on your own time.
-SWA itself is doing a great job by opening other training locations for the cadet pathway training to take place, to take the pressure off CAE. The crown jewel of these seems to be US Aviation Academy in Denton, TX, since they have the ability to conduct checkrides in-house and totally bypass the nationwide examiner waitlist.
- Also, it's important to note that the NEW LOCATIONS IN TEXAS AND FLORIDA ARE PART 141. For those who don't know, Part 141 is the full works flight training, with fully fledged lectures and lessons and quizzes, on top of the flight time, much like a college course. Part 61 is essentially a self taught program where it's up to you to learn basically everything aside from flying techniques, by textbooks or even BUYING AN ONLINE COURSE TO MAKE UP WHERE CAE WONT.
- I can't even begin to describe how infuriating it is that SWA's program at CAE is part 61, and COSTS MORE THAN THE PART 141 PROGRAMS FOR THE SAME (IF NOT BETTER) TRAINING. If my personal situation would allow for me to move myself and my girlfriend back to Texas to finish this training I would in a heartbeat. I can't see for any reason at all that anyone would pick CAE over the other 2 schools going forward. On cost alone, they're 10% to 20% CHEAPER and give a much more in-depth training (or at least it seems that way).
- The absolute BEST part and my major selling point of this program to me are the partners. SWA doesn't have the luxury of sending graduates to their regional airline to build time, so they have a suite of pretty cool part 135 partners to fill this gap. Places like Jetlinx or XOJet where you can get a taste of non-airline flying gives the graduate a totally different perspective on the job market. You can even go to SkyWest if it's regional experience that you want. SWA has been teasing us for months on end saying that new partners are on the way, so I'd expect them to announce that in by the end of 2023 if not earlier.
- Once you finish the training you'll begin time as an instructor (could be Arizona, Texas, or Florida) and get to about 650 TT before you can make a decision. At 650 you basically get to choose from a handful of the Part 135 partners that will get you multi engine & turbine time, and the second you hit 750 you can go. If you want to try your hand at a Part 121 you can elect to be a CFI to 1500 TT and get your ATP and go fly for SkyWest or iAero. If you're really lucky you can elect to take a leadership position at CAE (not sure how it works at the other locations) and get to 1800 TT and go directly to a new hire class at SWA.
- Obviously these jobs are NOT handed out like candy and you must be a qualified candidate to get them much like anyone else, but the training is most definitely designed to be good enough to get you a job here.
If I could go back in time to before starting this program, I wish I would have seriously considered continuing at my local flight school while in college and saving, quite literally $60,000 for the same exact part 61 training in a glass cockpit trainer. As many will probably agree with, if you're hungry enough you'll find a way to get there all the same. THE WAY THE PROGRAM LOOKS RIGHT NOW I'D STAY AWAY FROM CAE AND HEAVILY CONSIDER US AVIATION ACADEMY. Even then, a big part of me wishes I would just do it on my own locally for the same training, cheaper, and you could work part time to support yourself. A lot of this will come down to what each person wants to get out of the training. Best of luck!

2023.06.09 19:10 Advanced_Breath_5993 Trying to make career moves postpartum is hard :(

Just a vent - this whole being a mom AND having a career thing sucks. It truly feels impossible to keep trying to be better at both.
I’ve worked in banking for 10 years and have hit a dead end as far as my skills, education, and interests are concerned. I’ve found a position within the local government that my experience translates really well to and I’m interested in. I first applied for this position in March of 2020 when my daughter was 2. I passed the written exam and was in the final interview stages, feeling really confident, doing really well, expecting to hear something back April 1, 2020. I’m assuming you all can guess why that didn’t work out. The position posted again March 2022. Two weeks after I applied I found out I was pregnant again. I couldn’t justify forfeiting the 16 weeks paid maternity leave in my current position, so I withdrew my application. The position posted AGAIN April of this year, so of course I applied. When it came time to take the exam, I was incredibly sick, as well as both kiddos, but I powered through it. I ended up passing by some miracle. Now, two nights ago, the whole family got food poisoning at dinner and we’ve been fighting for our lives over here trying to keep from erupting out of both ends. And of course my in person interview was today.
Outside of my intestinal distress, I feel like my ‘mom brain’ has been 150x worse after my second baby than my first. I’m in the interview today and I’m trying to thoughtfully answer the questions, but I felt like a rambling idiot. Like I know that the scenarios I was using were good, but I couldn’t get the words to flow right to make coherent professional answers to their questions. And it’s so disappointing and honestly embarrassing.
Like, I know I’m better than that. I know I could do the job. But I’m 7 months postpartum, the baby is still very inconsistently sleeping through the night, I’m breastfeeding, and I’m not at my 100% and I know it. I’m a good worker and I know I would do the job well, but I really feel the chances I’ll get a callback are slim to none. It was a shitty interview.
My current position is unfulfilling, severely underpaid, and I just feel stuck. After everything I’ve gone through trying to get this stupid position, I keep thinking maybe this just isn’t my time. Maybe this isn’t my season to try to make a career shift. Maybe this is the time to enjoy the kiddos and let work be background noise. Earn my keep and go home. There will be time for career moves later. It’s just hard to be anything but disappointed in myself right now.

2023.06.09 19:09 Geek_Rokys Wargame for SLA

Hey all,
So as we are getting minis for the SLA, do you think we will one day get an SLA wargame? I know there is not enough "factions" but it could probably work similarly as Space Marines in WH40k mixed with (I haven't played this one but) LOTR.
Having humans pick one either radiant order or just house they follow. For parshendi we could pick which Fused will be leading the attack/defense. There can be the middle envoy where parshendi would be "neutral" and have some chasmfiends on their side or just humans equipped with hell-lotta gem-tech. Or heck it some squads with mix of parshendi and humans.
I know it seems kinda limited for now, but I think it can be a really fun as we will additionally see how everything will resolve in book 10 (I know years in future but you know, we need to start somewhere), as it is in a what? 20-30 year span from book 1 to book 10? Maybe there will be in the end Scadrialians joined and you can have another faction. I know ghostbloods kinda are but, they are not the "in your face war" people. OOOOH and heralds.
Just a small rant from my side as a person who started wargaming like 9 months ago and does not seem to find a good fit for any universe available.

2023.06.09 19:09 Chewsgum [REQUEST][Blizzard] Diablo IV Standard Edition PC ($69.99) (3rd Attempt <3)

Hello to anyone who reads this. I'll start out by saying even if you don't read the whole thing I hope you have an amazing and beautiful day. I figured I'd make one final request from this wonderful community. I did have the wonderful pleasure of being blessed by this community once before and can say from the bottom of my heart to everyone who gifts one here, thank you. You are truly wonderful and bring so much joy to everyone. It's truly hard for me to honestly ask for something like this especially at this price tag. I only come here because there's currently no way I can get it own my own. I do feel a bit weird asking for such a gift but this is the best option I feel I have. I hope everyone who reads this understands. I guess one good way to start this off is by covering my history with the Diablo series. <3
Now, I'm not an OG Diablo player whose played since the beginning. Hell, I wasn't even born when the first game released. I never played the first one but I do remember playing Diablo II a small amount as a kid but only for a little bit. As a kid my go to game on the PC was Unreal Tournament: Game of the Year Edition. My true love for the series started with Diablo III. I was there during the beginning where the launch was disastrous and the real-money auction house was a thing. I knew I found something good through all the mess the game had at its launch. I remember playing it after school for hours daily. I didn't know much about the series so to me it was just a game I played through a couple times with different characters and called it quits. My true love for the game didn't blossom until I played it again on PS4 lent from a friend. I can say right then and there that I was addicted. The gameplay of Diablo is something you truly get lost in. Hours go by and through it all you're having nothing but pure fun. I feel over the years that multiplayer games, especially in the competitive scene, I just can't compete in anymore. I've noticed I've been sticking to PvE multiplayesingleplayer games more and more and honestly I like the change. It's relaxing. I can honestly say that with Diablo IV I didn't expect to be as interested. I didn't fall for any hype or marketing except when it came to one thing. The open beta. Looking back at it, it honestly would of been better if I didn't play it lol. From the moment the game launched, I picked my character, and proceeded to play the story, it was all over. I knew this was going to be a special game (at least to me). Everything felt perfect to me and I proceeded to hit max level within the first day and continued to play until the servers were shut down. I explored and took in everything I could and was honestly have the most fun I've had in a while from gaming. The open world design compared to Diablo III is such an improvement but the biggest improvement for me is the gameplay. Everything the game has to offer combat wise is a 10/10 for me. The sound effects, the visuals, all of it makes for such an immersive experience. It feels amazing to do anything in Diablo IV. Exploring caves, entering rundown towns, fighting demons that overrun villages and dungeons. And all of that was just from the open beta. The full game experience I truly think will be 1000x better and hold up so much more then previous Diablo's. Since then, I've been doing my best to learn about everything from the Diablo series. Seeing how the old games played and most importantly, learning the story. I've been doing nothing but thinking, watching, and reading up on everything Diablo. Everything except for what's in Diablo IV. If possible, I'd like to be as blind as I can be (outside of the crazy time spent in the beta) if I was to get the game. Honestly though that kinda wraps up my history with the series. I would say I'm on the newer side but I would love to get to know the series more. Possibly make friends along the way too! <3
I hope I provided good enough reasoning behind my request. I feel so giddy and excited when it comes to this series and would love to continue my journey with Diablo IV. I would lose myself in this games world for a very long time. It's honestly everything I want in a videogame especially now since I'm sadly not able to play much games. I would also love to think of this as a wonderful almost 2 week old birthday present if possible. If I can provide any info I'd be more then willing to talk to anyone :D I love you all! <3

2023.06.09 19:09 jigglewigglejoemomma Renewing US passport from the UK. Should I expect the same 10 week timeline as if applying in the US?

So I must leave the UK by August 2nd. I intend to do a visa run and come back to the UK for another two months to tie up some loose ends, meaning leaving the UK before August 2nd and then returning. I've sent my passport to the US embassy for standard speed renewal with all the proper requirements the first week of June. I wasn't aware of the huge backup that seems to be the case, and that's totally on me.
In any case, despite my best googling, I haven't been able to find the information I'm looking for. So in comes asking Reddit.
When renewing a US passport through an embassy while abroad, is it possible for the passport to be processed faster (closer to the previous standard month) because it's part of a smaller pool of passports being processed there, OR is the passport still put into the total pool of passport renewals that the government is dealing with and in which case I should still very much expect this to take 10 weeks?
If I should still expect the renewal process to take ten weeks AND having already mailed my passport out at standard speed, is there anyway to contact the US embassy in the UK OR the US as a whole to pay the extra to have the renewal process sped up?
I've received conflicting information here from a call center representative telling me that I will need an emergency travel visa (though despite reaching that call center through the UK's US embassy he said he doesn't know of any specific info to the UK's embassy that could help me), while online I've seen information telling me to contact this or that American number to pay more to change to the faster service.
The problem with these options is that 1. Getting an emergency travel visa to go to Europe and then another to come back to the UK seems unrealistic, and 2. I'm unable to easily call these US number's to check my options (which will likely not be useful in any case because I suppose they're for this question but for people in the US, not for people already abroad like me where I guess they'd tell me to contact the embassy, which I've tried and have nothing to show for it).
TL;DR questions: Should I expect my passport renewal process to take the estimated 10 weeks it would if I was renewing at home in the States, or will it likely go faster from having fewer passports to process at the embassy themselves?
Should I expect the 10 weeks, does anyone know how I can change to the faster service after having already sent my passport out while being abroad?
If not, how likely is it that I can use emergency visas to fulfill a visa run? I'd have to come back to the UK in any case to get my passport that's coming to my girlfriend's house regardless.
Sincere thanks to any and all answers and info I might get here.

2023.06.09 19:09 Notriv GPU usage spike, drop to 15 fps

Ive searched for this issue and found no solutions, one worked during the beta (installing an older nvidia driver) but now diablo wont open with that driver, need to be updated, but the newest driver has the same issue.
I will play fine at medium-high settings for 10 or 15 minutes, GPU usage around 50%, then randomly it will jump to 100% usage and my fps drops to 15. changing certain settings or restarting the game fixes it, but this is making it nearly impossible to play for long peroids.
has anyone found a solution to this? im running a GTX 980, 16GB vengeance RAM, a ryzen 5 5600X, and all on a 840EVO SSD.
I even can play 40 fps on hgih/mazx settings, same issue after 10 mins. my card isnt great, but it meets the requirements and i dont understand whats causing this.
Thanks!

2023.06.09 19:09 Hayabusa71 DD2 has no content tied to beating a boss, other than a new chapter.

Right now, the only real reason to kill a boss more than once it to either: A)You're trying to get the Grand Slam B)You want memories on your team.
Everything else in this game is unlockable behind candles that can be farmed (Even the difficulty). And the most optimal way to farm is to play the latest chapter you've unlocked, i.e. once you've beaten Ch.2 there's virtually no reason to fight the second boss again.
Why? Every other rougelike has items/characters/whatever tied to progressing through the game and usually mastering bosses.
Beat the boss 10 times to unlock the alt version of it. Beat the boss without taking damage to get a secret character. Beat the boss in less than 15 rounds to get a weapon.
In Darkest Dungeon 2? Beat the boss. Ok, now do the next chapter.
Technically speaking, You can unlock everything in the game by replaying a single chapter endlessly.
There should be an entire separate unlock tree tied to actually replaying the game. Since, you know, it's a rougelike.
Kill 200 fishfolk to unlock Shroud related battle items. Kill the Librarian 10 times to unlock more Trophies. Kill the Denial in less than 15 rounds to unlock a rare stagecoach upgrade.
New skins, pets, trinkets and items. Leave the heroes tied to candles, same with most trinkets and items. But reward us for repeatedly playing the game.
Imagine finishing a run and instead of "yay 75 candles" you get "A Shackle Of Denial will now appear in the basement inn (And you get 75 candles)"

2023.06.09 19:07 Expert-Giraffe9241 I (M17) am concerned about my younger brother (M12) and need help on how to think things

So I am writing this post for some advice on how to treat/ encounter my little brothers actions, because right now, I don't know what to do and am stuck. For context, me and my (6th grade) little brother have been close in our earlier years when life didn't take its course and force me to move on to growing up while leaving him behind. I always feel bad whenever I think of this but it just had to happen. We're still close but it's always "im busy" or " I dont want to play right now" half the time he asks.
But, over the years i've noticed that he's gotten more stubborn than usual. I dont mean this in a condescending way but im just afraid that it's going to carry on throughout his life. For example, about a year or two ago, there was an issue concerning his phone. He ended up breaking the screen to the point where it broke through the screen protector and had the actual screen looking like it was supposed to be the screen protector and had been using it for months. Mind you, he didn't tell me, my siblings, or my parents that this has happened with his phone and has just been using it this way with no mind to it. I'm pretty sure I was the first to confront him about this and when asked "why didn't you at least tell anyone that your phone was like this", his response was "its not your phone so why do you care about it so much" or "if its not bothering me, why are you bothered by it" or "its mine so why do you care about it". I don't really care about what he said even though it was in a sassy tone, but more about the message behind it, because now it just looks like he doesn't even care about things.
A few more events like the previously mentioned one happened a bit more frequently after that. He got a nintendo switch for his birthday in december last year. Over the months he started to get more games on it by asking my sister to take him to gamestop. I would usually play with him when he asked this time as I wasn't really busy around this period and ended up developing a liking to the Super Smash Bros game he had. I would play it on my own sometimes when he wasn't using and more than half the time willing to play it with him when asked. After a bit of time though, I ended up not playing for a while and kind of lost interest because of school again. A few weeks ago I wanted to just try it for a bit to see if I still had some interest in it and asked him where the game card was to put in the switch. All his response was "Oh I don't know where it is". I was asking him questions like "do you atleast know where you last had it?" or "can you atleast try to remember some hot spot areas you might have played the game near" or "at least give me somewhere I can look so I can look for it for you" and he just started to get irritated and getting angry saying that he doesn't know where it is, but you could kind of tell that he wasn't even trying to think of a place or help, or maybe that was just from my perspective.
I'm just concerned about my little brother because now it looks like he just doesn't show interest in things, would sometimes steal things like food and lie about it, used to straight up lie about things even though caught in the act, (maybe) doesn't really acknowledge consequences to his actions, and basically doesn't do anything other than watch youtube videos and play on the computer all day. I don't want to end up controlling and demanding like my parents towards him nor aggressive and mostly angry at him like my older siblings, but I don't want to just ignore some of these actions and don't know how to carry on from here. And even though sometimes he does get pretty annoying and acts weird sometimes, I try not to be rude or just brush it off as this is his childhood and these are things that hes going to remember. He's definitely a smart kid, always scoring high on tests, but I'm just scared that he's going to be lost through these every day acts and end up losing the bond with him.

2023.06.09 19:07 i_like_2_read What can I expect and prepare for when transitioning into an office workplace setting?

I started teaching right out of college almost 20 years ago and have never set foot in a private sector or office job. In the fall, I'll be leaving the classroom for a government position that allows me to work from home 3 days a week and 2 days in the office and travel to other states a few times a year. Without giving too much detail, it is a project management position where I'll be collaborating with different divisions within the office, leading committees, communicating with vendors and training people that use our product.
A coworker that came from an office job that knows me well stated that I will thrive in the areas that require communication and socialization, but may struggle with the lack of structure that a school day provides. He also said to be prepared to be bored since working in an office is A LOT slower paced than the classroom especially when doing government work.
For those that have worked outside of the classroom, would you agree with this? What other suggestions or tips can you give me? What was the biggest work culture shock that you experienced? This is still a public sector job, so I can roll over my pension and my salary is public knowledge, if that plays a factor in the advice you can share. Thanks for the help!

2023.06.09 19:07 ConformistWithCause Eye of Ugin is a safe unban

Isn't a mountain so creativity isn't playing it, doesn't tap for blue so you can't cast archmage's charm, can't cast ragavan, hammertime doesn't play eldrazi, wouldn't benefit cascade, tron could be a problem since ulagmog will cost 8 instead of 10. Could keep going on but I think it's fair to say it would be a safe unban. 10/10 totally fine

2023.06.09 19:06 somerandomperson2516 i was scrolling through r/twosentencehorror

until i was sucked through my phone, i than woke up in a dark room i can only see a white neon bright orb so i decided to touch it than i woke up in a grassy plains biome surrounded by plateaus than i looked up to only see the knife guy flying?! the knife guy than floats down than rushes at me using 1 of his knife but thankfuly i dodged it, i than punched him in the guts than comboed him ending with a kick to the face knocking him into a plateau. the plateau exploded due to the knife guy's energy than he flew up and started charging an energy knife bomb! he took 40 minutes to charge it than he threw the charged energy knife bomb, the charged knife bomb is too big for me to dodge so i decided to make myself unstable thus making me not STABle for a few seconds but that few seconds wasnt long enough. i took a bit too much damage and i was barely standing. i notice that the knife guy started flying towards me with his hands out ready to punch me while he's flying so i decided to think of anime boobies to make me motivated allowing me to dodge than pick up the energy knife from the charged energy knife bomb throwing the knife at the knife guy doing some damage but than the knife guy said "its time to get serious heheheheheheh" he than started to fly upwards meanwhile spawning more knifes around him making a circle of knifes around him than he stopped flying upwards and started flexing. he than started throwing the knifes at me one by one to tire me but thankfuly i parried some of them using his own knifes but than i realize the fatal error i made, he started to control the knifes i was using to parry than he made them fly upwards making me unable to let go due to im scared of heights and how high i were. soon he stopped raising the knifes he than pointed them towards the ground than the knifes i was holding onto started going towards the ground at high speeds. i knew there isnt anything i could do... i cant..- than a yellow beam of light hit me, the beam of light is 10 feet long and reaches to the moon, i realized this is my energy allowing me to fly so i let go of the knifes allowing me to get rid of my fear of heights than i started flying towards the knife guy but the knife guy didnt like this so he started throwing beams of knifes towards me but thankfuly i dodged it, we kept repeating this 5 times until i reached the knife guy than i launched a energy beam at the knife guy making him unable to fly for 10 seconds due to the damage he wasnt expecting so i went behind him doing a nasty punch on his back than comboing some punches doing a sledge hammer to the ground knocking the knife guy to the ground than i teleported above him with my hand back than i launched myself towards him punching him with all my might but the knife guy had enough. he makes a tiny knife explosion around him forcing me to dodge than the knife guy starts screaming for 5 minutes, knife starts growing out of his hair, the knife guy spawns even more knifes, after 5 minute passes he than teleports behind me with insane speed stabbing me in the back paralyzing me, i than fell to the ground hoping to recover but i couldnt... i notice that the clouds were circling making a hole than i notice that in the hole of clouds it kept switching from day to night repeating that 50 times in under 5 minutes than i notice 20 lightning strikes which kept repeating faster and faster until a man showed up which healed me i thanked him than i did a kicked the knife guy's balls but since he made all of his hair knifes my foot got stabbed than the knife guy elbowed me knocking me into 5 plateaus but i launched a energy beam at him while i was getting flung dealing damage to the knife guy but it looked like it did nothing, the man that appeared said his name is bob, bob than launches an unexpected energy blast at the knife guy which did a little bit but not enough but than bob gets an idea, he tells me to give him 5 minutes and we might have a chance so i agreed. i chad walked to the knife guy than i started playing the wii with him giving us 3 minutes but than the knife guy realized that i was trying to stall so he punched me into 5 plateaus but thankfuly i dodged it so i only hit 4 and a half plateaus, i than started circling him while flying while shooting energy blastes at him than i launched a energy blast behind him but he turnt around really fast and did a sledge hammer attack knocking me to the ground but thankfuly its been 5 minutes than i notice by looking at the water a big blue energy ball, i pushed the knife man into the water than ran towards bob, bob than threw the energy ball at the knife man doing insane damage, there was only a couple pieces of islands left and the knife man no where to be seen, we than danced but than we realized that the knife man wasnt dead?! he than did a small energy beam at bob's heart which bob couldnt dodge killing bob, as bob is dying he said "d- d- do t- this for m- me i- if you d- dont do it... who WILL" than he died as he slowly turnt into ash than the wind slept the ash away... i started crying... i started raging, the water started to turn into waves and lightning started to appear the clouds started to go dark, my hair started to turn yellow than i let out a scream thus fully making my hair turn yellow. i notice something strange as if i was stronger... i punched the knife guy which sent him into 20 imaginary plateaus than i teleport behind him meanwhile he's getting flung backwards than i'd do a attack which sent him down than i'd grab him by his head than i put his head in the water for 2 minutes than i'd throw him in the air than launching a ki blast to his head while his mouth is still open than grabbing his head after that kneeing him than throwing him to a island i slowly flew down to the island than saying "is that all you got, what happen" the knife guy than said "eheheheh this isnt even my final form!" the knife guy than started to transform into his final form which made us equal in power, i than flew backwards charging a huge energy beams and the knife guy did the same by charging a huge knife energy beams, our beams clashes, the beams accidently reached to the core of the earth blinding everyone stopping the beam than transforming the earth into a lava planet, i notice that we have 5 minutes left so i flew towards him kneeing him 4 times than punching him in the stomach than launching a ki beam to his stomach than i'd teleport behind him doing a strong punch attack on his back but i'd be caught off guard when the knife guy teleports behind me doing a kick than 20 fast punches than stabbing me than flying towards the ground that isnt lava than the knife guy flys upwards launching beams of knifes but thankfuly i created a shield before the knifes can hit me than i launched a strong beam attack almost ending the knife guys life, i than walked towards him holding him by his neck over lava, i than said "i'll let you live IF YOU NEVER HURT A SINGLE PERSON AGAIN" the knife guy agreed so i threw him towards the island than i flew away but the knife guy didnt want this, his pride was hurt and he knew he couldnt live like this so he launched a one final big large knife at me, i realized that and i said "YOU FOOL!" i launched a one handed energy beam attack completely destroying the knife and killing the knife guy too, i than flew away hoping to find the exit but than i saw the same orb i saw in the start so i followed it than it stopped at the door than i opened it but than i saw the horror of i was in the knife guy's world...

2023.06.09 19:04 throwraFrequentRow2 I wish he was still here

2 years ago I met a lovely man on a dating app. My usual experience with dating apps was that men talk for a bit and stop replying, but he was so so keen
He had just moved to the uk from abroad and was obviously keen to meet ‘a cute English girl’ in his words. He texted me non stop and for the first time ever, I actually enjoyed conversation with a man on a dating app. We would talk about so many interesting topics and he would constantly send me pics of his day. He was very sweet and kind
After a month of texting, we were ready to meet and we had our first date at my favourite farm shop. It was about an hour from my house and he happened to live a few houses down! And we had a great spark! He texted me after the first date to tell me how much he fancied me
And that’s how it started. We started dating, I planned all the dates, picnics, walks etc but I didn’t mind as he had just moved here. Our chemistry and connection was great and I felt happy. We would do so many spontaneous things and he would introduce so many new foods and music into my life. We talked all night about shared experiences and had so much in common. We did little camping trips and trips to little towns and I felt safe and happy. It wasn’t fireworks but it felt wonderful.
All my friends commented on how well suited we were and how happy I seemed
And then when my tenancy ended, he said why don’t I move to his town so I did. I got an apartment with some female roommates and it was great
He never planned a date though and as he was broke, he never actually did anything for me. I was kind and supportive and did a lot for him.
3 months in, he completely changed. He was cold and moody with me. He was impossible to communicate with. He did nothing for my birthday when it came round.when I addressed a need, he played victim and called me manipulative
I thought he was depressed and I did my best to support him.
But one weekend, I felt terrible around him. He was really cold with me. Shaking his head at me and criticising me. He dumped me over the phone and told me he dated me because he was lonely and never fell in love. I didn’t understand as he was the one that pursued me.
Tonight for the first time in 2 years I’m heading for dinner at the farm shop alone. I’m incredibly sad. Especially as the farm shop sent me a voucher for a meal to mark our anniversary and we’re not together (we were known by the shop for having our first date there and everyone commented on how we were a great match)
I feel empty and I can’t find the same thing with anyone else. Like no man will ever connect with me in the same way and I’m scared I’ll be alone forever. I’m 28 and very lonely, I’ve worked on myself and like myself but I wish he was there to join me
I’ve tried dating apps, but honestly no one makes me feel anything. All my friends are getting married and he even was on a wedding invite I got last week as a plus one.
Tonight I really want to message him, I need closure and a cuddle. We were. A great match I know it, he hasn’t even messaged me again to ask how I’m doing

2023.06.09 19:04 BigcaketakeLilcake Why is everyone so high on Scoot?

Every single post on this sub praises Scoot and trashes Miller, and I see no other reason other than “Scoot has crazy potential because he’s athletic!”
He objectively did not have a good season for the G league Ignite:
16.5 ppg on 14.1 fga, 43% FG and 27% from 3 on a team that finished 11-21. I get he has an “nba ready body” but the dude is a bad shooter at 6’2.
Miller went for 18.8 ppg on 13.9 fga and shot 38% from 3 on the best team in College basketball (on top of shooting 86% FT). He was basically a better version of Jayson Tatum at Duke.
If you’ve watched any of the nba playoffs this year, 2 factors keep coming into play: shooting and size. I just don’t see how anyone can look at these 2 prospects and think “Scoot is the automatic pick, he’s generational talent while Miller looks like a bust”. Don’t know how many times I’ve seen people state that Scoot would go number 1 in most of the last 10 drafts, which is absolutely absurd to me.
It’s like saying I think Russell Westbrook will contribute to winning a championship more than Paul George.

2023.06.09 19:03 Armed_Buoy [DA2 Spoilers] Just finished DA2 for the first time and absolutely loved it after being underwhelmed by Origins

I've been going through the DA series for the first time over the last couple of months and I wanted to share my feelings on the first two games, especially DA2.
For some background, I've only recently started considering myself a "Bioware fan" to the point where I felt compelled to check out all their major releases. This is largely due to Mass Effect's Legendary Edition release, which completely blew my mind and left me desperately wanting more games which featured a similar approach to things like character writing and worldbuilding. I had already played the KOTOR games growing up, and even jumped into a bit of SWTOR here and there, so it seemed the obvious next step in the Bioware catalog was Dragon Age.
As I participated in the online Mass Effect fandom, I pretty quickly started hearing bits and pieces about the various Dragon Age games: Inquisition was a mixed bag, 2 was awful, and Origins... well, that was Bioware's magnum opus. Understandably, all this praise that Origins received from the community had me rather excited to try it out for myself. I completed my first playthrough this past autumn, and after all my anticipation... I came away feeling very underwhelmed.
To be fair to Origins, a lot of that disappointment just boils down to my personal preferences not aligning with what the game offers: I don't typically find Tolkien-inspired western fantasy all that interesting, and I don't really enjoy most "oldschool" CRPG combat systems. So, lo and behold, I found myself mostly uninterested in the game's setting, and the gameplay to be dreadfully boring. The main narrative really didn't do anything for me, either, especially since I found the orcsDarkspawn entirely uninteresting as the game's big bad. Perhaps my biggest disappointment with the game, however, was its cast of companions; by the end of my playthrough, I think Alistair and maybe Morrigan were the only characters I genuinely cared about, and the latter mostly just because she was my chosen romance option. I found everyone else (save for my dog, I guess) either mostly uninteresting or annoying to deal with. I actually enjoyed Awakening's cast a fair bit more than the base game's, but I didn't feel like that DLC gave me enough time to really form a strong bond with its characters before it ended.
There were still a lot of good things I liked about Origins, particularly its quest design and how much player agency it provided in most situations, but I ended up walking away from the game feeling pretty "meh" about the whole experience. I started to suspect that Dragon Age might just not appeal to me in the same way that Mass Effect or KOTOR did -- after all, if the supposed "best" game of the series disappointed me, what hope did the "inferior" subsequent entries have of winning me over?
Well, after dragging my feet for a few months, I finally got around to starting DA2 a few weeks ago. I had heard all the horror stories about this game via online discourse: crappy combat, lackluster dialogue, and recycled assets as far as the eye could see. I went in expecting the worst, but after spending 50 hours or so on my first playthrough, I ended up having a fucking blast.
For starters, I much prefer the combat in 2 to Origins. Maybe I'm just a filthy casual that just couldn't appreciate the deeper mechanics present in Origins or whatever, but everything feels so much more dynamic and responsive in 2. I played a warrior in both games (dual wield in Origins, 2h in 2), and I LOVED being able to more quickly move across the battlefield and reposition myself to focus on key targets or protect my squishier companions from aggro. The combat encounter design could get pretty tedious at times with its tendency to throw random waves of enemies at you from all sides, but even so I found the overall gameplay loop much more palatable than Origins'.
The main narrative was another strong point of DA2 for me. The whole idea of the game being a story retold by Varric is such an inspired choice, and I love how the devs really leaned into that idea at certain points, such as when he tries to convince Cassandra he went completely Scarface on Bartrand's goons during his personal quest in Act 2. Moreover, I thought the somewhat smaller scale of DA2's narrative led to me connecting with it far better than Origins' "world-saving hero" story. I had a blast roleplaying my Hawke as they went from a destitute refugee all the way up to Kirkwall's Champion, and found myself really invested in the setting of Kirkwall with all its various lore and ongoing conflicts. Yes, the lack of environmental diversity and reused maps did become apparent, but it wasn't something that really bothered me all that much or took me out of the experience.
The biggest surprise of DA2 for me was its cast of companions and the gameplay systems surrounding them. I absolutely loved the cast of companions in this game, with each of them having such distinct personalities and compelling personal narratives that paired perfectly with the game's main story. Varric, Merrill, and Aveline were major standouts in my playthrough, but I ended up connecting with pretty much all the companions by the end of the game, perhaps save for Sebastian. Additionally, I think the friendship/rivalry system is probably the single best companion affinity system I've yet seen implemented in any game. While Origins' like/dislike system was interesting in theory, it ultimately just felt like it punished me for using companions that didn't agree with my Warden's views, not to mention it was incredibly easy to bypass the system using gifts. With the rivalry system, I felt like I had a lot more freedom to bring characters that didn't agree with Hawke on everything, knowing that the act of simply bringing them along with me on missions meant that I would be gaining favor with them one way or another. I still managed to end up going the friendship route with most of the characters during my playthrough, but I did rivalmance Merrill, which I thought was a super unique and compelling experience that perfectly suited the way I was roleplaying Hawke.
There are a ton of other finer pros and cons I have regarding DA2, such as the dialogue system and how it handled certain important characters towards at the end of the game, but I don't want to waffle on here for too much longer. Ultimately, DA2 completely exceeded the low expectations I had for it, both due to its poor reception within the community and my own personal experience with Origins. My enthusiasm towards Dragon Age has been completely reinvigorated, and I can't wait to start Inquisition in a few weeks' time once I'm back from a short vacation. I won't be properly joining the sub until I'm finished with Inquisition, but I'm very much willing and eager to discuss anything regarding Origins or 2 in the comments.
