2023.06.09 18:55 LitBrit94 [Comic] The characters of Watchmen and community

While reading the comic for the first time, I was struck by Chapter 11. Specifically, when the fight breaks out between the two women - former lovers - on the street where the newsvendor Bernard sells his paper.
Tensions between the various people who meet on the street that night: Bernard, the indifferent boy who buys comics from him (also Bernard), Gloria, her estranged husband Dr Malcom, the onlookers, the police nearby - all of it is forgotten as they all rush to stop the violence, even as total annihilation looms over their heads.
This is sandwiched between snippets of Ozymandias' villain monologue - because that's what it is - detaling the origin and logic behind his master plan, and how he believes it will "stop the fighting". He has been preparing for this moment for years, alone, from his high tower. He defined himself and relationship with others by intelligence and distanced himself from childhood. Since his parents' deaths, it only got worse, and now he is so far removed from humanity that he may well have been on Mars all this time. May well have been from Mars. He had to do it alone, to become a legend like the kings and pharaohs he idolised, because he related more to dead tyrants than people like Bernard.
It never even occured to him to consult with his fellow costumed adventurers. It had to be all him. He had to be the only one taking the credit, even if he would be the only one who knew he had saved the world. It was like the ultimate validation of his genius, of himself. He is the worst traits of Rorschach, Dan and Laurie combined: unyielding, a slave to nostalgia, desperate for purpose. All to the ultimate detriment of humanity.
Back on the ground, Dr Malcolm, about to intervene in the fight, tells his wife: "In a world like this...I mean, it's all we can do, try to help each other. It's all that means anything."
It was only possible to discover Ozymandias's plan by the other main characters working together. Rorschach, Silver Spectre II, Nite Owl II, none of them would have discovered the truth had they not communicated and collaborated in some form. Doctor Manhattan had the power all along, but not the will. The learned helplessness of his former human life bled into his super one, and resulted in his struggle to retain any aspects of that life weak at best. He needed Laurie to change his mind. He couldn't do it himself. But while he lacked control, he still evidently learned for the connections he lost and it was thanks to that that he saw anything worthwhile in preserving humanity at all.
Rorschach, for as cripplingly isolated as he is, still makes the effort to contact others in his circle and involve them in what's going on, whether they want him to or not (and it's mostly not). He's the first one to do so. I got the impression, particularly during Rorschach and Dan's teamup, was that in spite of everything, there is a part of Rorschach that genuinely desired a positive connection with others, most exemplified by his interactions with Dan. When Dan snaps and calls Rorschach out for his unreasonable behavior, instead of getting angry or leaving, Rorschach apologies and it's such a genuine human moment for the both of them. Rorschach is cynical, angry and traumatised, but he still keeps living because trying to help others, and the world has meaning to him. It has to.
Dan and Laurie are both very lonely people when we first meet them. Isolated from their former comrades, estranged from family and lacking a circle of friends, they feel adrift and hopeless. Dan in particular clings to the past because that was when he was most happy. Back then, he was part of a team, a community, fighting for a united goal.
As partners, Dan and Laurie have the healthiest communication of the cast. They express and explain their feelings to one another and help one another. Laurie gives Dan the boost he needs to get back in the suit and feel good about himself, and Dan reciprocates her emotional support. Sure, their desire to help others is second to their own fulfilment, but when they see trouble they go and help. They may still be helpless against nuclear apocolypse, but so is literally everyone besides the fools bringing it about and Doctor Manhattan. Still, they are content with being happy and helping others to be so if they have the power. They realise their human limitations and do not overstep their bounds - like certain other people. Their community is small, but sturdy, and they are finally connected to others in a way that fulfils them.
Bernard, the newspaper vendor, bemoans the hostility with which people treat each other in bad times, and reaches out, for the first time, to the boy who buys comics from him, and finally gets his name. All this time they've been together, and Bernard finally finds out the boy's name is actually the same as his. Though it's a brief moment, and the boy is indifferent, it means the world to Bernard and as disaster strikes, he uses the last moment of his life to try and protect the boy.
All this, to me, this highlights just how meaningful and necessary community is in the world of Watchmen, and how damaging a lack of it is on individuals and the world in the story. Because it took too long for people to come together nobody was able to save anyone, not even Ozymandias (although he would like to think so). Everyone spent too long apart, in bitterness and indifference.
Apologies if this ramble is a mess, I'm not very good with sorting out my thoughts.

2023.06.09 18:55 CUNT_AND_BLUNT "you have been reported tea killer"

That's what some level 27 with an A10 premium said to me after I accidentally killed someone, Story being someone was already struggling to shake a Mig21 off in sim battles, so I tried to help out by firing an Aim9-g at that guy, sadly in sim it doesn't tell you who you have locked unless you have good radar.. Sadly the Kfir. C7 had only a rangefinder. The missile hit the friendly F5 who I apologised to straight away after shredding that Mig21 with the 20Mils and getting to a safe altitude. Then this mf comes out with no kills and 10tons of tnt dropped saying I'M the tea killer when he launched a missile at me before. It's rather funny isn't it?
More or less is this really that bad? After all I didn't know the missile was tracking a friendly (yeah I know I shouldn't have fired) but he was going to die either way. Who is in the right?

2023.06.09 18:55 prankerjoker Martin had Bulldog prank call Frasier in Leaping Lizards (Theory)

I have a theory about episode titled leaping lizards. In this episode, Bulldog calls Frasier at home pretending to be some doctor asking for Niles. He says the boys at the club were settling a bet with the Mikado.
Frasier says he was in an all male version in college. And sings a verse.
"Three little maids from school are we."
"Prim as a schoolgirl well well be"
"Filled to the brim with girlish glee"
"Three little maids from school!"
At the point, Martin come out with a portable radio laughing at Frasier.
"Dad, would you please be quiet? I'm trying to settle a bet here!"
"You sure are. Some caller bet Bulldog he couldn't make you sing over the air!"
"Sayonara, Doc!"
Hilarity ensues.
My theory? Martin called the radio station to ask Bulldog to prank call Frasier.
When Bulldog calls, posing as Dr. Julius Erving, he asks for Niles. Frasier mentions he is not there at the moment. That is when Bulldog mentions the Mikado and this got Frasier's attention.
Why would Bulldog ask for Niles in the first place when he wasn't there? How would he know Niles wasn't at Frasier's apartment. How would the prank call play out if Niles did answer? The goal was to get Frasier on the air.
The only 3 people who knew Niles was going to be out was Martin, Daphne and Frasier. And Frasier didn't know Niles was going to be late until Daphne told him.
This makes me theorize that Martin is the one bet Bulldog he can make Frasier sing on the air.

2023.06.09 18:55 Blackademic1 How to better structure my days?

I am looking for advice as I'm on the last leg of my PhD. Wondering if current PhD students, recent grads, or profs are willing to share how you structure your writing days? Coming into grad school, I was STRONGLY against structuring my days as a 9-5...simply because that did not work for me (ADHD, family commitments, etc). However, I've recently shifted to that model as I am trying to crank out as much writing as a I can. It has been productive, BUT I don't love it, to say the least. So I'm wondering what others do/have done when you're on a tight deadline?
Additional question: any software that has been helpful for reading and/or writing? For example, I plan to start using speechify to help get through texts a bit faster.

2023.06.09 18:54 ChipmunkOk6550 I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

I was woken up at 2:30 this morning by my ex on the phone with an old friend of hers, telling her friend to get out of an abusive relationship.
My ex, who broke my hand, put her hands around my throat, and did so many more things that I have yet to fully come to terms with and will likely never be able to talk about outside of therapy, was being so kind and gentle to her friend. "Well, there's clear emotional and psychological neglect, at least, if not more, but--I hate to ask--physically, has there been.....?" I had to lay in my bed and remember the times I told my ex that I would have told any of my friends to leave a situation half as bad as the one I was in, but I stayed. And now I'm stuck living with my ex for the next year, listening to her clearly show more love and concern for people who live hundreds of miles away than she ever felt for me.

2023.06.09 18:54 Rare_Ad_725 Dangerous washing machine

Hi,
I'm looking for some help with an issue at my apartment. My washing machine has been been working off and onsince I've moved in and this is the 4th time they've came out to look at it. The last time I used it, it literally sounded like there was a tornado or thunderstorm outside of my window. Fyi, I'm at the opposite side of my apartment with both doors closed. Basically, I told them I didn't want it in my unit anymore. So they go to their manager, she calls me and I tell her everything that happened and she tells me they couldn't find anything wrong with it. I tell her I literally thought it was going to blow up as I was running to stop it. Fyi again, my little brother stays with me right across from the washing room. So I'm thinking about him as well. She then tells me she wants me to show them how I'm loading it 🤦🏽‍♂️ I told her I've been doing laundry over 20 years and respectfully if they refuse to get me a new one, I have no problem leaving it on the side walk. She told me she would charge me the full price for, charge me for damage to property, and and send me an eviction notice. I told her that's fine, have a good day and hung up on her. Like is this coming out of her paycheck? If she had an appliance in her house that she thought was literally going to blow up, endangering you and your family, wouldn't you want it out.
I live in the state of Georgia, and I'm wondering if anyone can help me with the laws for apartment units. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
Thanks

2023.06.09 18:53 Puzzleheaded_Log3903 Build with strange behaviors, not POSTing and not turning on

Hello, it's the second time I have a problem with this build within the span of one year.
The specs are: SSD XPG SX8200 Pro NVMe, 512GB CPU Ryzen 5 3600XT GPU EVGA NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super SC Ultra Gaming, 6GB PSU Corsair 550W 80 Plus Bronze CX550 RAM Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB (2x8GB) 3200Mhz DDR4 C16 MoBo1 Asus TUF B450M-Plus Gaming MoBo2 Gigabyte Aorus B450M
This computer I have a dual boot with ubuntu and windows10, my basic usage is for CSGO (win10), internet stuff and programming (ubuntu). I was using XMP to set the RAM clock to 3200Mhz and that is it. I have two motherboards and am currently using MoBo2 (Gigabyte Aorus B450M).
The issue: 1 - Basically the computer doesn't POST, no led lights, no signal of anything happening when I press the power button. Using the MoBo2 (Gigabyte Aorus B450M)
I was using the computer normally, turned it off and went to sleep. The next morning the computer did not start as I described earlier. The tests I executed was to check if the PSU was turning on by doing the paper clip jump then turning on, after this I checked each pin voltage with a multimeter which were correctly, right after I went to check the CPU power cable pin voltages which were also correctly. Then I disassembled everything from the motherboard, including the CMOS battery remaining only the CPU itself, 24 pins cable, CPU power cable and CPU fan cable. After this I tried again to turn on the pc by touching the PWRSW pins, again no success. After some time I decided to change the CPU fan by just connecting another fan on CPU_FAN pins and it worked! Right after I turned off the PSU, added 1 RAM stick, SSD, GPU, plugged the stock cpu fan in a SYS_FAN output, then proceeded to turn on the computer. It worked again! I was able to boot up, choose between windows or ubuntu, see my log in screen etc. I decided to turn everything off and go for the case mounting. After mounting everything, pressed power button and no signal of life again. Based on my finds it could be the case since some screws and motherboard's standoffs were rusty. One more time I decided to disassemble everything and test it on the top of the mobo's box. Unfortunately I was not able to turn on the computer anymore. Once again I checked everything, every cable, the PSU again, changed the fans and used a different one, checked if the MoBo was somehow physically damaged, even sprayed an electrical contact cleaner in the mobo but nothing could make it turn on.
This is the second time I have a problem with this build, the first time I had with the MoBo1 (Asus TUF B450M-Plus Gaming) which I'm gonna describe below.
2 - With the Asus mobo I had a problem with computer not starting, not POSTing, only the mobo leds were working. I did all the tests I commented above changed it and it did not worked anymore. I made tests with my friend's mobo, rams, ssd, gpu, psu but nothing could made it work, when using my stuff on his build everything worked. Based on this I condemned the mobo and bought MoBo2.
After trying everything with MoBo2 (gigabyte) I gave a shot at using the MoBo1 (asus) just because everything was disassembled. Turned out that using the CPU, 1 ram and GPU I was able to make the MoBo1 work! After the surprise I tried to stick the ssd to see if I was dreaming or not then reality came and the build did not turn on again.
I'm concerned about the CPU because it's the only thing I have not tried in these two scenarios. With MoBo1 the PC lasted working a bit than 1 year and same with MoBo2 now.
Does anyone have any clue, test or thought related to these scenarios?

2023.06.09 18:53 Ann35cg Advice or thoughts on moving forward?

Hi everyone- please bear with me if this is long. My journey began when I started my period at age 12. Up until the age of 16, when my doctor finally put me on birth control, I had excruciating periods that left me bed ridden. More than 3x I fainted from the sheer amount of blood loss I’d lose in one sitting (one trip to the bathroom), I would vomit from the pain and not be able to move. My mom had to come get me from high school after collapsing in the hallway.
They were mostly managed by bc though not 100%, I’d often skip my placebo week and not have a period purposely for months. Hormonal IUD ruined me, I had it a year before removal and had every bad symptom possible, not only was it the worst pain I’ve ever felt to have it inserted, I gained 25lbs and had painful cystic acne.
Cut to present-day, I have been tracking my cycles with an app and am 4 months post LEEP/conization surgery, where the doctor admitted she had to cut out more of my cervix than originally intended to remove all high grade precancerous lesions. My cervix is now so short it is almost flush with my vaginal walls. Recovery has been tough, my periods have been 4-6 days late every month, but the pain didn’t return as badly until now.
All week I’ve had pelvic pain, belly, lower back, thighs and a tingly feeling in my calves. I can FEEL my surgery site, it feels like it did the week after I had it, it’s a stinging feeling like someone pulling on a scab, and a pressure that goes all the way to my anal area. I’ve hardly bled, and I wonder if that’s due to scar tissue.. I’ve read in a support group that some women have experienced reverse menstruation after this procedure and the inflammation either brought on or exacerbated endometriosis.
My question is- how do I get my doctors to take me seriously about endo? My grandmother had it. I’ve had 3 ultrasounds looking for cysts on my ovaries and they’ve always been clear. But the pain remains.
If you’ve made it this far, thank you.
TLDR; endometriosis symptoms starting at young age/puberty, returned post LEEP procedure, looking for some help

2023.06.09 18:53 Responsible_Will_320 Making Friends as an Adult: Exploring Different Types of Connections

Hello! I'm making this post to help out other people who struggle with making friends are just need some advice. Whether this is helpful or not you can tell me. But I think you'll be able to leave with something. So let gets started. There are four main types of friends:

  1. Social Friends: These are the buddies we meet through shared interests and social activities. They bring a refreshing break from our routines and offer companionship and support when needed.
  2. Work Friends: Colleagues can become friends too! Building relationships in the workplace not only enhances our professional lives but also creates a sense of community and support during office hours.
  3. School Friends: Remember those classmates we used to hang out with? Reconnecting with old-school friends or making new ones through educational pursuits can add a touch of nostalgia and support to our adult lives.
  4. Online Friends: With the rise of social media and online communities, friendships formed in digital spaces can be just as meaningful as offline connections. They provide a global network of individuals with shared interests and experiences.
    Each type of friendship has its pros and cons, but don't let that discourage you. Embrace the opportunities that come with meeting new people and building connections. Remember, friendship adds richness to our lives, no matter the form it takes. Okay now that I got that over with, let's break down "Social Friends".

Social friends, as the name suggests, are the friends you make through social events like parties, movie gatherings, book clubs, and more. These connections can also be formed online through various platforms. However, navigating social friendships can sometimes be a bit tricky.

When you meet people at social events, it's natural to assume that they are open to making new friends. However, it's important to remember that everyone's motivations for attending these events can vary. Some may be looking to expand their social circle, while others may simply be seeking a fun activity or a change of scenery.

To build a deeper connection with social friends, you'll need to put yourself out there. Since you already share a common interest or hobby, leverage that as a starting point for conversation and connection. Ask questions, show genuine interest, and actively listen to what they have to say. By engaging in meaningful conversations and finding common ground, you can establish a stronger bond.

Keep in mind that building friendships takes time and effort from both sides. Don't be discouraged if not every interaction leads to an instant connection. It's okay to take it slow and let the friendship develop naturally over time.

Remember, the key is to be open, approachable, and willing to invest in building a deeper connection with your social friends. By doing so, you can cultivate meaningful relationships that extend beyond the social event itself.

Feel free to share your own experiences and tips for making friends through social events in the comments below. Let's keep the conversation going and help each other navigate the world of adult friendships!
Pros of Social Friends:
  1. Common Interests: Social events bring people together who share similar interests or hobbies, providing a natural foundation for building friendships.
  2. Fun and Excitement: Participating in enjoyable activities with friends can bring a sense of excitement, making social events memorable experiences.
  3. Variety of People: Social events attract diverse individuals, giving you the opportunity to meet people from different backgrounds and perspectives.
  4. Shared Experiences: Bonding over shared experiences can create a sense of camaraderie and deepen the connection with your social friends.
  5. Expansion of Social Circle: Making friends at social events helps expand your social circle, providing opportunities for future gatherings and connections.

Cons of Social Friends:
  1. Surface-Level Connections: Since social events often involve meeting many people, friendships formed in these settings may initially remain superficial and require further effort to develop.
  2. Varying Commitment Levels: Not everyone attending social events is actively seeking new friendships, which can lead to uneven commitment levels and potential disappointment.
  3. Limited Time Together: Depending on the frequency of social events, you might not have ample time to build deep connections with every person you meet.
  4. Overlapping Friend Circles: In some cases, your social friends may already be part of other social circles, which can complicate dynamics and impact the exclusivity of your friendships.
  5. Difficulty Sustaining Connections: Maintaining friendships made through social events can be challenging, particularly if events are infrequent or if there is a lack of shared interests outside of those events.

Remember, these pros and cons can vary depending on individual experiences and preferences. The key is to approach social friendships with an open mind, invest time in getting to know others and be receptive to the possibilities that each connection brings.


Okay, now Work Friends.

Work friendships can be quite challenging to navigate, often resembling a turbulent tsunami rather than gentle waves. It's not because the people you meet at work are necessarily unpleasant; it's more about the nature of the work environment itself. Let's face it—nobody truly enjoys working. Spending five days a week, eight to ten hours a day, engaged in work tasks can be draining for anyone. This shared experience of work-related stress can sometimes affect interactions and dynamics among colleagues.

When it comes to making friends with your coworkers, it's crucial to understand the pace and dynamics of your workplace. Consider the fact that people come and go from organizations frequently. Trying to forge deep connections with everyone within your first few days might not be the most sensible approach. Not only may you end up leaving the job yourself, but others may not have had the chance to truly get to know you yet.

However, if you genuinely want to make friends at work, there are a few strategies to keep in mind. Firstly, take the time to observe and understand the work culture. Each workplace has its own norms and dynamics, so it's important to respect and adapt to them. Secondly, be patient and allow relationships to develop naturally over time. Engage in casual conversations, show interest in others, and look for common ground to bond over. Building trust and rapport takes time, so don't rush the process.

Lastly, remember to maintain professional boundaries. While it's great to have friends at work, it's important to separate personal and professional aspects. Avoid getting involved in office politics or gossip, as it can strain relationships and harm your professional reputation.

Work friendships can be rewarding and provide a sense of camaraderie in an often demanding environment. By understanding the pace, respecting the work culture, and investing in genuine connections, you can navigate the challenges and create meaningful relationships with your coworkers.

Share your own experiences and tips for making friends at work in the comments below. Let's continue the discussion and support each other in building strong work friendships!

Certainly! Here are some pros and cons of making friends with your coworkers:

Pros:
  1. Shared Understanding: Your coworkers understand the challenges and intricacies of your work environment, providing a unique understanding and support system.
  2. Increased Collaboration: Building friendships at work can foster a sense of teamwork and collaboration, leading to better communication and productivity.
  3. Networking Opportunities: Your coworkers can serve as valuable connections for professional growth, job opportunities, and career advancement.
  4. Social Support: Work friends can offer emotional support, lend a listening ear, and provide a sense of camaraderie during stressful work situations.
  5. Enhanced Job Satisfaction: Having positive relationships with your colleagues can contribute to overall job satisfaction and enjoyment of the workplace.

Cons:
  1. Blurred Boundaries: It can be challenging to maintain a clear separation between personal and professional life when your friends are also your coworkers.
  2. Office Politics: Becoming involved in office politics or favoritism can strain relationships and potentially impact your professional reputation.
  3. Potential Conflicts of Interest: Disagreements or conflicts within the workplace can create tension in friendships and affect the overall work environment.
  4. Limited Social Diversity: Relying solely on work friends for social interaction may limit exposure to a diverse range of perspectives and experiences.
  5. Transient Nature: As people change jobs or move on to different organizations, work friendships can be subject to change or fade away.

Remember, these pros and cons may vary depending on individual circumstances and workplace dynamics. It's important to approach work friendships with a level of professionalism, set boundaries, and navigate any challenges that may arise in a thoughtful manner.

Okay we move on to school friends.
School friends are relatively straightforward to make, especially if you're in college or high school. Typically, the people you sit around in class or interact with regularly are likely to become your friends. School friendships are generally less complex, and you don't have to worry as much about personality differences or introversion. Since you're all around the same age, the chances of encountering bullies or harm are relatively low.
However, it's important to remember that not everyone will share the same interests and hobbies. Avoid trying to force conversations or make people like what you like. Instead, embrace the diversity of interests and engage in open-minded discussions to learn from one another.
If you want to maintain long-term school friendships, make an effort to stay in touch without being overly clingy. It's a two-way street, and not everyone may prioritize keeping in touch with old friends. If that's the case, be understanding and open to making new connections. Don't be afraid to reach out to old school friends via direct messages or social media to see if you can hang out occasionally.
Remember, the key is to find a balance between maintaining school friendships and embracing new opportunities for social connections. Keep in mind that people's lives can change after school, and priorities may shift. Be open to new friendships and experiences while cherishing the memories and connections you have made.
Here are some pros and cons of school friendships:

Pros:
  1. Proximity and Commonality: School friends are often easy to make because you are in close proximity to your classmates and share common experiences.
  2. Shared Academic Goals: School friends can provide academic support, study partners, and help each other navigate coursework and assignments.
  3. Sense of Belonging: School friendships contribute to a sense of belonging and community within the educational environment.
  4. Social Development: Interacting with peers in school helps develop social skills, communication abilities, and the ability to navigate different personalities.
  5. Long-Term Connections: School friendships have the potential to develop into long-lasting relationships, providing a network of support beyond the school years.

Cons:
  1. Limited Exposure: School friendships may lack diversity in terms of age, background, and interests, which can limit exposure to different perspectives.
  2. Transient Nature: School friends may drift apart or change as educational paths diverge or people move on to different stages of life.
  3. Cliques and Exclusivity: School environments can sometimes foster cliques or exclusive social groups, making it challenging to break into established circles.
  4. Academic Pressure: Balancing academic demands and social interactions can be challenging, potentially leading to stress or neglect of friendships.
  5. Limited Compatibility: While you may be close in age, not all school friends will share the same interests or values, making it harder to form deep connections.

It's important to keep in mind that these pros and cons can vary depending on individual experiences and the specific school environment. School friendships can be valuable, but it's also important to explore relationships beyond the school setting to broaden your social horizons.

Online friendships can indeed be one of the easiest ways to make friends, especially for introverts. The barrier to entry is incredibly low—all you need is a device with internet access to connect with people from all around the world. It's as simple as turning on your PC, phone, Xbox, or PlayStation and reaching out to make friends.

In the online world, friendships can form quickly and effortlessly. You can meet someone while playing a game together and instantly click, or simply connect by following each other on social media platforms like Twitter. Online friends can feel like the best companions for introverts because they understand the need for personal space and the comfort of connecting from behind a screen.

Of course, it's important to exercise caution when making online friends to ensure you're not being catfished or deceived. Be mindful of sharing personal information and use common sense when engaging with new acquaintances. While online interactions may lack face-to-face communication, it doesn't mean you should abandon basic social etiquette or forget how to interact with others. Treat online friends with respect, kindness, and the same level of decency you would extend to offline friends.

Remember, online friendships can bring incredible joy and a sense of belonging, but it's essential to strike a balance between virtual connections and real-life interactions. Don't isolate yourself solely in the online realm—try to maintain a healthy mix of online and offline friendships.

Remember, online friendships can bring incredible joy and a sense of belonging, but it's essential to strike a balance between virtual connections and real-life interactions. Don't isolate yourself solely in the online realm—try to maintain a healthy mix of online and offline friendships.

Feel free to share your own experiences and tips for making friends online in the comments below. Let's continue the conversation and help each other navigate the world of online friendships!
Another important aspect of online friendships is the potential for them to grow into real-life friendships. While online interactions provide a convenient and accessible way to connect, it doesn't mean that these connections have to remain confined to the digital realm.
As your online friendship deepens and strengthens, there may come a time when you feel comfortable and ready to meet your online friend in person. This can be an exciting opportunity to take your friendship to the next level and solidify your connection. Meeting in real life allows you to engage in shared experiences, explore common interests, and create lasting memories together.
However, it's important to prioritize safety when transitioning from an online friendship to an offline one. Take necessary precautions, such as meeting in public places, informing others of your plans, and trusting your instincts. Trust and open communication are key throughout this process.
It's worth noting that not all online friendships will develop into real-life friendships, and that's perfectly okay. Some connections may remain exclusively online, and that can be fulfilling in its own right. The beauty of online friendships is their versatility—they can exist purely in the virtual space or extend into the offline world if both parties are comfortable and willing.
Here are some pros and cons of online friendships:

Pros:
  1. Accessibility: Online friendships are easy to initiate and maintain, as they only require an internet connection and a compatible device.
  2. Broad Connections: You can connect with people from around the world, expanding your social network and exposing yourself to diverse perspectives and cultures.
  3. Introvert-friendly: Online friendships can be particularly appealing to introverts, as they provide a sense of connection and companionship without the pressure of face-to-face interactions.
  4. Shared Interests: Online platforms allow you to connect with individuals who share similar hobbies, interests, or passions, fostering deep connections and meaningful conversations.
  5. Flexibility: Online friendships offer flexibility in terms of communication, allowing you to interact at your own convenience and fit it into your schedule.

Cons:
  1. Limited Face-to-Face Interaction: Online friendships lack the physical presence and nonverbal cues that come with in-person interactions, which can sometimes hinder the depth of connection.
  2. Trust and Safety Concerns: It's important to be cautious and mindful of potential risks, such as catfishing, scams, or online harassment. Establishing trust and verifying identities is crucial.
  3. Potential for Misinterpretation: Online communication can sometimes be misinterpreted due to the absence of tone of voice or body language, leading to misunderstandings or conflicts.
  4. Superficiality: Some online friendships may remain superficial, as the limited nature of online interactions may make it difficult to develop deep, lasting connections.
  5. Balancing Online and Offline Relationships: It's important to strike a balance between online and offline friendships, ensuring that you have a healthy mix of virtual and real-life connections.

Remember, every friendship is unique, and these pros and cons may vary depending on individual circumstances and experiences. It's important to approach online friendships with caution, establish trust gradually, and maintain a healthy balance with offline interactions.

2023.06.09 18:52 SixxieKit How should I go about collecting/Selling?

Hey! (I know everyone /can/ do what they want, im just looking for advice to help me on my way)
So im struggling with the mind of how to go about selling my cards. I only want to collect specific ones, or so I thought. Getting the paldea evolved booster box yesterday has me questioning, but here's the thing.
I love organizing and looking up cards on eBay and TCG. I love collecting pull rates. The only thing is my neck hurting so I need to find a better seat to do all this, haha. But in all reality I could easily just hoard pokemon cards to sort and resort and price check and rate and yeah... but monies are needed to supply the desire for cards, haha.
So, should I hold cards in hopes that they go up in price, or should I sell them straight out at the beginning of the releases?
Astral radiance was the first box I had, and it was a complete bust. Nothing of worth in a sellers sense, but some pretty cards I certainly don't mind keeping. Im currently out about 300$ with no card over 2$.
I just started out, but im trying to find a system for myself before I sell my base cards from child hood. But.. to keep up on buying cards I need to sell cards.. and that is starting to be frustrating.
Now, it won't stop me from getting cards. I have two collections. One for my godson, where I want to get every pokemon I can, not every card, just every pokemon. So he sees that he has that specific pokemon he sees in the show and on GO. And then my collection is just specific pokemon that I perceive as being my friends and family. So, that leaves for a lot of wiggle room in selling high priced cards.
But in the mean time I get to chill and organize these beautiful pieces of artwork, with all their little codes, and rarities, and pull rates.
Also, when it comes to selling. Im currently practicing selling MagicTG cards on ebay, because I would rather learn mistakes on cards i have no desire for, rather than try pokemon and find myself in a downwards slope of being scammed and losing cards I could have enjoyed collecting in the long run. Is ebay safe for the seller?
I see many pokemon subs saying to use PayPal services like family and friends, but they've used that in the makeup community, and the buyer is typically the one that wins out. Weather the seller has proof or not. So it does make me weary.
My brain is short circuting soooo I guess ill pause here and hope for advice/suggestions.
NOTE: im not looking to turn this into a "get rich" thing, just to fund itself, if that makes sense.

2023.06.09 18:51 bengoretner Fuck it, I’m optimistic again: Ange’s fit with Tottenham

Fuck it, I’m optimistic again: Ange’s fit with Tottenham
In a classic spurs fan fashion, I managed to be disgusted exactly one week and now I’m ready for disappointment once again :) !
I took a close look at how Ange might set up next season and dang it if I’m not intrigued.
Here’s how I believe he will set up, with examples from his Celtic side, how I think our players and depth would fit and what type of players I’d go after.
In Possession Philosophy:
While in possession, ange likes his team to setup in a 4-1-4-1, with the fullbacks creating a horizontal line with the number 6 which makes it arguably a 2-3-4-1. Number 6, the pivot, is responsible to always make himself open and create triangles between himself and everyone around him, in order to push the ball forward. Ange likes his wingers to hug the sidelines, in similarity to Pep’s City side, which allows them 1v1 opportunities vs the opponents fullbacks, and creates space for both the number 8s between the opposition’s Fullback and CB. The wingers also sometimes tend to switch places with the number 8s to cause confusion. The number 9 can get all sorts of opportunities, from the number 8s or through sideline crosses, and he has to make the most of them.
In Defence:
Ange’s teams defend in a high pressing 4-2-4. When losing possession, the inverted fullbacks come in to press aggressively and usually they’re the ones to get the ball back and stop the counter attack. Notice here it will be Udogie and Bentancur. The defensive line sometimes goes as far as inside the opposition’s half (like Man City), which requires very high awareness from our CBs. This I believe would be our biggest weakness and why we most nail our CB signings
Let’s see how our players fit this system (spoiler: they actually fit the system in a really exciting way) -
GK: David Raya
Perfect fit - homegrown, one year left on his deal, PL proven and can distribute passes.
CB: Romero & Laporte
Like I said Ange likes to play with his CBs on the halfway line. To do that, the CBs have to be comfortable on the ball, agressive, fast and have high awareness. Romero fits this perfectly, and while there are better fits to this system then Laporte, he fits alongside Romero like a glove. he balances Cuti’s agression perfectly, is experienced in playing a high line and is comfortable with the ball, which would bring a much needed calmness to our build up.
RB/RM: Pedro Porro
Here I think Ange has to make an adjustment. Usually his fullbacks are inverted, but I believe he’ll have Porro burning the right sideline back and forth, delivering crosses and creating a beautiful triangles between himself Kulusevski and Bentancur in the build-up / between himself Kulu & Kane in the final phase. Notice Bentancur will have to cover for him when we lose the ball high up the pitch.
LB: Destiny Udogie
Here is another guy who fits the system like a glove. The inverted fullbacks are allowed to go as far high up as they want, and make runs to the 8s designated space between the opposition’s CB and Fullback. Now go ahed and watch Udogie’s goal involvements this year and tell me where they all come from. This young lad is going to explode. Plus he’s fast and agressive enough to fit his defensive assignment perfectly. Only minus is experience - it’s a very hard role which requires high awareness so you don’t leave massive holes behind you.
Pivot: Bissouma
Do I need to elaborate? He was the only midfielder who came in to receive a ball last year, he doesn’t lose the ball, plus It’s a similar roleto the one he had at Brighton.
Box to box: Bentancur.
Because of the adjustment we made for Porro to go high up, Bentancur gets the inverted fullback role offensively. Which is fricking exciting. Rodrigo is great in the buildup, doesn’t give the ball away, and can make smart, sharp, ‘assist to assist’ passes forward to the number 8s. Remember how I said defensively the inverted fullback is responsible for immediately pressing and getting the ball back, aggressively. Rodrigo can do it. While it’s a different role for him, if he does succeed in it, Rodrigo has the potential our MVP and to make this team scary. Very scary.
LW: Son
1v1s wasn’t Son cup of tea this year, but he has the opportunity to get the ball in a very open field a lot in this high spread system, which we know he likes, and his chemistry with Kane and Maddison could be a gigantic problem for opponents to deal with. Plus as I said the wingers tend to switch places with the number 8 quite a lot, catching defenders off guard, which is where I think sonny is gonna make his money this year. Imagine a quick switch up between Son and Maddison, then a quick 1-2 between him and Kane. Oh yeah.
Number 8s: Kulusevski & Maddison
God am I excited to watch this 2 in the half space behind Kane. They compliment each other so nicely - Maddison just a little further back makes the CB come towards him to cancel his long shot threat, which opens up space for Son & Kane and Maddison’s great through balls. Kulu is a strong, shifty dribbler, perfect for creating chances In-between a Premier League CB and Fullback.
Number 9: Harry Kane
Hopefully he stays because I’m really excited about this project. But to keep the optimistic approach, Ange likes his number 9 to play almost as a decoy, forcing opposition CBs to choose between him or the other upcoming threats. And Richarlison could feast in this role.
Transfers:
We badly need a GK, a CB and a creative CAM. I made my examples with Raya, Laporte and Maddison, although I’m no scout and there are many other intriguing options, plus I won’t be upset if we went with the younger route. I’d also like to see us signing another CB to jump Dier and Tanganga in the depth chart.
Depth:
-Im really intrested go see how Gil does in a 1v1, hug the sideline role that actually fits him. -I think Hojberg fits as a defensive sub for Bentancur. -Ndombele could actually be our best super sub in a while, we just saw him play 20-30 minutes a game for a Seria A winning Napoli side, and this CAM role fits him perfectly. -Davies is a nice defensive sub for Udogie. -This role should certainly be more suiting for Richarlison then whatever Conte had him doing.
In an important note, if this project ends up not working out, I won’t be upset. This is the exact football I want to watch our Spurs play.
Thank you for coming this far, hopefully I got you excited as well.

I'm having an issue on Pixel 6, despite the assistant and all it's functions being set to 'off' the above prompt repeatedly comes up when earphones are plugged in . This disrupts Spotify for example as the phone seems to go haywire and starts / stops / changes songs at will.
Any insights as to why this is happening. I'm on Android 13. It's been working fine until this morning out of the blue.

2023.06.09 18:51 Ahkhira What to do with too much bourbon?

As the title says. Life has been boring lately. Yesterday I lost my primary job, and my Sous was very happy to welcome me back in time for the weekend. (No, I will never fully escape this kitchen!)
Prep cook and I received the orders, and someone screwed up because we have 2 cases of bourbon!
Head Chef thinks it's funny, and also today's cooking challenge. I've come up with bourbon bacon (for cheeseburgers and other yums), a bourbon glaze for steak tips, and bourbon pecan pie for dessert, but other than that I'm out of ideas.
Anyone care to share ideas before dinner service?

2023.06.09 18:51 hansuper My first take on ergo mech for the beginner.

My first take on ergo mech for the beginner.
Hi everyone!
I recently posted a question looking for recommendations on ways I could either fine tune my existing setup or products / kits that I could jump into that I could really tailor however I like and there were a handful of comments indicating there are people frequenting this subreddit who are just now starting to explore the ergo keyboard world (maybe they are also coming from MechanicalKeyboards?).
To that point, I wanted to share what I felt like was my own relatively low-effort foray into the semi-custom ergo mech world for anyone that felt like they were overwhelmed with how deep this side of the hobby can go.
I started with a Dygma Raise which is essentially just a standard 60% split layout, but with 8 thumb clusters buttons - 4 on each side. I initially went with this product due to my perception of their build quality and the company's passion for its development and it really exceeded my expectations. I believe this would be considered an integrated plate mount. I have zero experience with QMK, VIA, or any other third party keyboard firmwares, so their Bazecor application was really appealing to me as I felt the GUI interface was intuitive and well designed and the firmware flashing process was very simple. I also purchased their first-party tenting mod when it was released for both of my keyboards and it has been a game changer for me.
I immediately replaced the stock switches with Gateron Ink V2 Yellows, which I lubed myself with what was, at the time anyway, a pretty typical collection of products: Krytox 205 on the stems and center mast of each switch, and Krytox 105 on the springs. I was initially surprised by the experience with the lubed switches as I felt like they now needed more actuation force, despite being a bit smoother. I assume I used too much lubrication as it was my first time (innuendoooooo). I did not do anything to the stabilizers.
After a few months with this setup, I felt like like I was still missing something. I really enjoyed typing on my Dell XPS and MBP keyboards, so I started looking into ways that I could emulate that scissor-switch feeling in a mechanical switch. I found the Gateron Box Ink V2 Pinks, which were relatively new and had a slightly lower actuation force with the same 1.2mm pre-travel as my current Yellows. I am a hard typist and almost always bottom-out, so if I really wanted to get as close to that scissor-switch feeling as I could, I needed something with way less than 3.4mm of total travel. After some more research, I found this tutorial on the ball bearing mod. I ordered these ceramic ball bearings from Amazon, as I didn't want to muffle the sound of my switches and I prefer the sound of the bottom-out. As they were 2mm diameter bearings, this reduced the total travel of my switches to about 1.4mm. The only issue that I've noticed with this mod is that if I am holding a key down (W to walk forward in an FPS for instance), if my finger on the keycap deviates too far from the stem, the switch may rock up slightly and disengage. This issue has mostly been addressed with muscle memory.
Just recently, I decided to replace the stock PBT Cherry profile caps from Dygma with something else. I wanted something minimally sculpted to continue the trend of the scissor-switch board, and found these low-profile nSA keycaps from Nuphy (maybe proprietary profile for them?). I'm still getting acclimated to them, but I really like the aesthetic and feel so far. I did have to retain the stock sculpted thumb cluster caps for comfort, and the 2.75u right shift cap, but I'm happy with the changes so far.
Hopefully this helps a few people who are interested in this hobby! I know not everyone (like me) wants to jump right in with something totally custom. While this probably ended up costing me a bit more than someone who already knew what they wanted and was willing to be more adventurous in choosing other layout options, it's been a nice transition into the healthier (for me) ergo space, while allowing me to still utilize almost all of my muscle memory from non-ergo boards.

2023.06.09 18:50 roughridingtigercat Is Peterson missing the message in Canada?

There's obviously a Quebecois/left wing nationalism going on in this country. But it seems like something is changing. I can't tell if it's covid/ukraine wahigh real estate prices etc, but for the first time in my life, I've seen people who have traditionally been pro American flipping the switch.
I noticed it started right after Biden got elected.
Keeping in mind this brand of nationalism seems to tie in with the fate of Canada versus "being Canadian". I get the feeling hearing so many people talking about leaving Canada lately has been cause to make people rethink their commitment to the country.
Maybe it's a kind of stockholm syndrome against Trudeau, I really don't know.
I could come up with a number of possible reasons.
For starters I think the media has convinced people of both the left and right, that America has it's own problems they don't want to add to their workload.
It could be our declining economy and high inflation state side, making a move to the US unaffordable for many.
I'm scratching my head but I just can't figure it out. Maybe it's people resentful they themselves can't get out. But I get the feeling more and more that people are kind of turning into a new age nationalism. Where it's effectively a kind of religious devotion/belief in something, when that belief isn't easy. The biggest change I've noticed is that there seems to be an absence of the historic divide in country. Which is the division between Anglos/French/immigrants. The Quebecois just amped up their language protection and surpisingly a lot of Anglos who were traditionally hostile to their politics are almost proud of the Quebecois even if they are a massive pain in the ass.
It could obviously be an influence of the Ukraine war. All of a sudden dividing the country up linguistically has lost it's appeal. but I just can't get past that something is changing in a way I've never seen in my life.
In the past it was obvious nationalism was based on trying to find a national culture etc to be proud of. I feel like Canada is so far past a national identity that we've moved to the next logical step where nationalism is based on commitment to the country.
I think the parrellels with Russia-Ukraine America-Canada are apparent.
The new American trade relationships not to mention another of other things has kind of proven we're only America's friend when it's convenient for people like Biden.

2023.06.09 18:50 travis_b13 Ever learning, and finding new details. I dove into the proxies, and I had read through the S-1, DEF14A, 424(b)(5), and dockets. I tracked the shares and preferred shares and as of bankruptcy, TSO was 739M. I had gotten to 4/23/23. Part 2

Ever learning, and finding new details. I dove into the proxies, and I had read through the S-1, DEF14A, 424(b)(5), and dockets. I tracked the shares and preferred shares and as of bankruptcy, TSO was 739M. I had gotten to 4/23/23. Part 2
This is an update as u/Significant-Bowler23 pointed out some things that I missed. This is less bullish, but I think it is more all encompassing. Current TSO based on information available is as follows:

Common Stock Outstanding: 586,843,262
Reserved for options & warrants 18,320,144 Reserved (not issued)
Series A Convertible Preferred Stock 122,355,810 Reserved (not issued)
Issuance pursuant to exchange agreement 5,000,000 Reserved (not issued)
Total Shares Outstanding 739,056,836

"Hold on, stripper boy. Why do you keep changing this?" Well with more information comes a better understanding. Let's walk through what Significant-Bowler23 pointed out, and I will walk you all through how we get to the end.

updated spreadsheet
So, I was wrong about the 100.1M shares already issued as it related to the S-1. That's because the 100.1M shares issued was related to the S-3 with B Riley securities in their $300M offering. As of the date of the S-1, approximately 100.1M shares had been issued for the B Riley deal, not for the S-1. That changes things, and I did go back and confirm that here:

https://bedbathandbeyond.gcs-web.com/static-files/4f8724e9-6246-4336-a0d4-281c7ed3bc27
So, since those shares had been issued not in relation to the S-1, when form RW was issued, and the S-1 withdrawn, that only withdrew the offering for the 111M shares offered in the S-1.

S-1 offering
So we can see in the green section that BBBY issued approximately 100.1M shares related to the BRS deal, they still had about 178.2M shares available to issue related to that deal, and had 111.7M shares available from the S-1. However, if we had 428M shares, and approximately 100.1M shares were issued related to BRS, then why isn't it 528M? I think that some warrants may have been converted for the difference, and I continue to research that. I remember seeing somewhere that some were converted, but I still need to find it.

So the S-1 states that shares of BBBY outstanding as of 4/10/2023 was 558,735,983.
S-1
It also goes into more detail about shares that are restricted but are not part of the 558.7M

S-1
Therefore, I believe after walking through this again with this additional information, we can conclude that 558.7M are the shares outstanding that would be considered the "float", whereas the cumulative 145,675,954 shares in the picture above are part of the TSO, but are restricted.

So, let's talk stocks/shares and learn just a bit.

thanks random google image
There are various terms for different "batches" of shares. Authorized shares are the 900M shares that BBBY has that they are authorized to issue. They have issued 739M shares. Of those, 6.5M are treasury, and 145.7M shares are restricted, leaving 586.8M shares of 'float', which can be traded publicly.

Again, we still don't know if any of the shares from these deals are closely held. I would assume the shares from B. Riley are not, as I went back and looked at the charts and it looks like they were sold on the open market. The HBC shares could still be closely held, but we don't know. Best case, 275M in the market, 311M held close by HBC. That's what I'm coming up with as of now.

This stuff is complex, and not everything I put out is going to be what everyone wants to hear, but I try to be as forthcoming as possible with information. We are still waiting on stalking horse, we know what could be lurking for all of us. I look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts on these new developments, and I will continue to update everyone as new information becomes available.

The top green is where I believe we currently stand as of now

Cheers.

2023.06.09 18:50 Every_Direction_7320 My recent ex girlfriend 27F(BPD) is going to court should I attend as victim?

So I'm 29m going to try and paint this in a light that doesn't glorify myself so I get honesty.
Keep in mind she has a 7 year old daughter. We were off and on for two years. Serious for a year. I moved in 7 months ago. The first 3 months were like a dream. Everything was perfect. 3 months in I had discovered on her phone that she had done Only Fans work a year ago. Now, I personally hated discovering this because I would have never dated a woman knowing that information. Please respect my opinion on this, it's just how I feel. I had also discovered that a decent paying job she had helped me get into, she had screwed one of the managers and two other employees. When I discovered this information and just told her how frustrated and angry it made me, it was just about how she had to what she did to survive ect. and that if "I were a real man," I would have just accepted it. That was an arguement for a night. One night I decided to drown my problems in alcohol and got carried away. I blacked out by the time she had gotten home and all of those things blew up. I became abusive. I called her a fat whore. I called her every hurtful thing in the book to match how all of that I mentioned previously before made me feel. I gave up drinking which was the honest truth to my problems. It ends up that she convinces me to go get therapy. I never had needed therapy or medication in my life. I was very happy before her 6 years single and knew I had high highs and low lows. I tend to believe everybody does at a certain point. I stop taking the medication after a month and the therapy because the medication flatlined me. It took away any enjoyment I felt from life. I even stole a wallet just to see if I would feel something and I haven't stolen anything except a donut when I was 17 because I ate it while in the store and didn't pay for it. Badass. Anyways. Ever since after those three months it had been a toxic spew. Neither of us wanted to make the other person happy. She clocked out mentally. Stopped cooking. Stopped cleaning. House was a disaster and she had 4 cats to look after and I was allergic. She used to clean everyday to keep my allergies down but stopped. Our sex life took a dramatic hit and sleeping together would happen maybe once or twice a month and it was not as good as it used to be. One night she tells me to leave because of an argument we had. I told her I wasn't leaving and she proceeded to throw all my expensive electronics at the door. I react in a toxic way and say OK, we'rer doing this now. I take my shoe and throw it at the TV, breaking it instantly. She proceeds to pick up a lamp and smash me with it, cutting me. Then punches me in the face twice, drawing blood from my mouth. I told her I wasn't leaving I pay bills too and I'll just sleep on the couch. She said no I'm calling the police and I said fine. Go for it. She does. They come. I'm treated as the hostile person at first but I comply. They look at the marks on me and the zero marks on her. In this state I was seen as the victim of domestic abuse and even though I didn't want it she was arrested and taken into booking. I stayed home she came back a few hours later. She said that she just wanted to sleep and leave her alone. I said OK(that was what I just wanted to happen originally dude ffs). We take couple's therapy together. It actually worked for two months. We would identify where we would say something mean before saying it, and were better people for it. Our sex life still never returned to normal and she really resented that. So the day of the break up her daughter wanted to buy me candles and sing happy birthday. I said okay we can do that two days after my birthday since we're both off. Sounds like a fun family day. Well the day prior of those arranged plans she comes home from work with the most evil eye in the world. "What are you up to? Let me see your phone." No, we're done the phone thing. Stop. She said she doesn't see my phone then I'm out. I started to sense a manic sense coming on and i began to feel uncomfortable. Very uncomfortable. I told her I'm going to go to bed at 9 pm and we can talk about it tomorrow. She said no it's done tonight if you don't talk about it. Sure enough I wake up and everything I own is at the door. There was no talking. Nothing. She was done.

Fast forward to now. I've been at my parents for 3 weeks. The court date is coming. The first few days hurtt and I missed her. We kind of became friends sharing memes and videos throughout the day. But then I told her I can't maintain this relationship because it hurts too much and that I miss her. Almost in the same breath out of anger I text her back the following day mad at her. Toxic as usual. She ended up blocking me so I drove to her apartment in tears after I regained my senses. I begged her quietly to let me in. Or just come outside and talk with me. I was just lost and wanted to see her because all of this had gotten so out of control. She never opened the door. She said she was calling the cops for me trespassing now. She did so but I left before they came.

Now her court date for assaulting me is coming up soon. This will be her second assault charge, first one unrelated to me 3 years ago. Do I attend? I do believe she's going to face a severe sentencing for the second charge this time around most likely including jail time. There is no chance we could ever be together I've recently come to that conclusion and built walls. I worry about her child, who does have a loving baby dad and supportive family on that side so it's not as if the child will be in protective services. So there's that. I don't know why I'm here. Support is nice.

2023.06.09 18:49 PruneBig 20 yr old Daughter in bed with sensory overload, 2 days after 2nd ketamine infusion for depression

She has autism and often gets "sensory".
After the first session she just felt good. It was a "baby" dose. She still hallucinated through the whole thing but liked it.
We went back just 2 days later for her second one and he gave her the full dose. She seemed to be in deeper, saying lots of words about where am I? ...and such, and she screamed coming out of it and thought she was dying, but quickly recovered and said the trip helped her. That was on a Wednesday, today is Friday, and we scheduled her next treatment on Monday. I plan to ask for the "baby dose" for her.
But yesterday, the day following her 2nd her treatment, she said she felt "sensory" which I thought the ketamine had gotten rid of since she said after the first one that the ketamine cured everything. And then this morning (Friday) she woke up angry and feeling like everything was too bright and too loud. She tried to go outside but said she was frightened by how loud and bright everything was. She is currently curled up in bed and needs just quiet and dark and rest. I took her a sandwich which she ate but I'm so worried. I just want peace for her. She is such a trouper and she suffers and struggles ever since she was so young.
Does anyone know if this frightening sensory overload will pass?

2023.06.09 18:48 CG1991 Why did Dynamite abandon the Turok (2019) TPB?

The Rob Marz run of Turok (2019) was brilliant. One of my favourite things to come out of Dynamite but they completely abandoned the TPB.
It was on Amazon for the longest time, but the date kept getting pushed back every month by a month until it stopped updating and now shows as unavailable.
Ron Marz has no idea why when I asked him, and Dynamite doesn't respond to emails or messages on here. It's annoyed me enough that I'm not touching Dynamite again.
I've accepted it's not coming out but want to know why.

2023.06.09 18:48 Key_Marsupial_5931 AITAH for being upset me wife spent 1k to be there for a friend?

So yesterday my wife got a phone call from her best friend that she's had since high school. (were all mid to late 30's) Ends up at her OB/GYN appointment they discovered a cyst on her ovary and they believe it may be cancerous. They took a blood sample and she should get the results back by end of today or tomorrow.
My wife decides she wants to be there for her friend. Understandable. The problem is, we're on the west coast and she's in the great lake area (2000ish miles apart) she found a plane ticket for $970 and was off super early this morning and will be home Sunday afternoon.
There's three main points that make me upset and annoyed at the whole situation and I do feel terrible for not liking that she went but, hear me out...
1) Finances. We've been really financially secure for years now and up until this year, this wouldn't have been an issue as we just would've been able to pay for the ticket with cash. Currently, however, money is SUPER tight. We got hit hard by Uncle Sam for taxes and owe a significant amount that we are paying though monthly installments. Also, earlier this year my wife got rear ended and our car was totalled. Fortunately, we owed less then it was worth so we were able to put a good down payment on the new one. However, our loan went from having 1.9% interest to 4%, so our payment is significantly higher. Those, plus just in general everything being way more expensive. We are living paycheck to paycheck and just had to put our replacement dishwasher and washing machine on a credit card. So now, we have an amount of credit card debt that makes me uncomfortable.
2) logistics. We have 3 kids (2, 3 & 9) weekends are bonkers at our house. Between keeping the two younger boys from destroying everything and each other and making sure the 9 year old gets to the activities she takes part in and making sure all the necessary cleaning is done, it's a whole ordeal to keep the weekends on the rails. We've each taken solo weekend trips before but they're all planned and we'll make sure to setup the weekend so that the remaining parent is setup for success. This was completely out of the blue and now I'm stuck trying to figure out how to get my daughter to her special event she's been looking forward to, making sure my boys aren't just staring at screens all weekend and getting groceries and doing some cleaning so the house doesn't turn into shit show. (I applaud all single parents out there)
3)commitment to friendship. So for starters, my wives friend is a single, childless doctor who just spent a shit ton of money having some huge house built for herself. That said, my wife and I just celebrated 10 years being married and the last time her friend came out here was for the wedding. And I believe in the 6 years before we got married she only came out once (and that was cause she had an internship at a hospital here and lived with my wife at the time) My wife has had several traumatic incidents happen in that time. For example, losing her dad while 8 months pregnant with our first born, 2 miscarriages, having to terminate a much wanted pregnancy at 24 weeks (hence a 6 year gap between kids) and most recently, a debilitating car wreck. Her friend never made it a priority to come and be there for her friend, even though her lifestyle would lead to that being significantly less impact full.
So, I just don't fully understand why my wife felt she needed to make such a rash and impact full decision when her friend has shown to not be willing to even do the same for multiple occasions. All for the results of a test that could very likely come back as negative. I just dont get it.
Thank you.
Tl:Dr Wife spent 1k we don't have to fly 2k miles for potential cancerous test results of a distant "best" friend, causing negative ripples throughout our family and household.

2023.06.09 18:48 Individual_Middle388 Update: AITA towards my family (who I am now in NC with basically all of them now)

I'm not even going to bother to hide. I'm even using the same account where you can look at my last post.
Uncle found out I hang out here. Don't know how. Gave this long speech how it reminded him that he and his wife are bad parents (you said it not me). And he ended with giving me devasting news. I'm never seeing my dog again. I'm not allowed anywhere near the house. He once again threatened me that he'll call the cops for trespassing and dad will go broke for bailing me out. I was given as long as I want with her when it was usually 2 hours from my visits. I stayed for about 6 hours cuddling her and tried to play with her but wasn't in the mood knowing this will be our last time together. I can tell she knew we're never seeing each other again. She was extremely sad when I left. I can tell she wants to come with me. This happened last Sunday.
I know all of you are going to laugh at this. I'm getting what I deserve right? I'm just letting you know I'm going to be happier. I'm going to live a better life. I'm starting to get there. But know this wasn't a waste of my time. I actually took people's advice on here (shocking right!). I'm going to focus on those that truly love me and those I truly love back. I am going to plan a great Father's Day for my dad. Boyfriend and I are looking at bigger apartments as well as a new puppy. I've always wanted a big fluffy dog which is why dad got me a golden retriever (I still miss you baby girl) but boyfriend thinks a small dog would be better and I agree (looking at a yorkie or havanese). Again shocking right! I'm agreeing with someone. That's what love is. Making compromises. And tonight me and my friends are going drinking and shit talk every toxic person in our lives (that includes everyone here so yay!)
There's my therapy. Although maybe some of you should look into that. Or at least give up anime or House of Dragons. You people are way too obsessed with inc*st. I should find this upsetting but again I'm just laughing at the irony of people accusing me of this.
