2023.03.30 14:17 Unique_Algae Strangest most vivid nightmare after taking melatonin
Let me preface this by saying that I took a pretty high dosage of melatonin for the first time in a couple of months. The first thing I remember is being in an operating room and a surgeon pulling and rearranging these like fiber wires coming out of my brain. It was insanely intricate and he was explaining the process of how each movement would bettefix problems with my brain function. After the operation for some reason I needed to be “reborn” (this is where shit gets weird) and I was literally put back inside my mother and birthed again. I think the reasoning behind this was to like reset my body. Well anyway, afterwards I feel really good and I’m having nice heart to heart moments with all of my family members and soon after it’s bedtime. (This next part is kind of irrelevant but I’ll tell it anyway) I wake up in the middle of the night on the couch, thinking I’m alone and start playing rocket league for some reason. (I think I’ve been playing a bit too much rocket league recently) and I notice that my aunt? is in the room and she is still sleeping. So I turn the console and tv off (forfeiting my comp game in the process, sadge) and head to bed. I’m sleeping well but then I start to have these tiny random hallucinations and like a migraine sort of feeling. I think I’m awake but I soon realize that I’m just dreaming so I calm down and just let the nightmares/hallucinations keep going hoping they’ll stop soon, but they keep getting worse. Then I see this huge grotesque fat sweaty man (hidden in the darkness) with a kitchen knife walk slowly into my room as he becomes clearer and clearer to see until he starts stabbing me repeatedly. I know it’s not real but I start to call for help as the head pains get worse. I soon realize that in “real life” I’m being rushed around by family members and I’m convulsing. I’m sort of whispering different phrases like help me, thank you, and I’m thinking I don’t deserve this kindness, why would they help ME? when suddenly I have this realization that I’m possessed and now I’m starting to violently fly around in the air while I’m convulsing. This is all happening while my consciousness is split between the “dream” and “reality”. This all reaches a sort of head after a minute, when it become too much for me and I wake up in real life. After waking up I had the realization that my dream subconscious interpreted myself as a devil like figure and that fat man as a god figure trying to purge me/the devil from the world. This is probably the scariest dream I’ve ever had. It felt so real and vivid (probably why I remember so much). I don’t usually have nightmares and when I do I’m really good at just realizing that I’m in a dream and that It’s all ok, so it’s kinda crazy how I was able to incept myself inside of a dream and scare the living shit out of myself like this. I don’t think I’ll be taking melatonin again for a while. Just reliving this is scaring me.
One last thing - if any of you have taken antidepressants you might know what serotonin/brain zaps are. Well this is the best way to describe what the head pains felt like in the dream. I’m also an atheist btw.
tl;dr - I undergo a strange surgery, to say the least. Realize I’ve become possessed after the surgery and shit goes crazy. I’m the devil and some murderous fat man is god.

2023.03.30 14:15 Manofathousandface Let's talk unnecessary but mildly interesting queries
I'll try to keep it short (I'm going to fail)
1: Social Insurance/Security Numbers. What the fuck are those on a galactic scale. What would they be called and would they be a 1-1 thing? The Shadow Broker's Volus in ME1 (can't remember his name) mentions all the different economies in the galaxy, and how they are basically apart of a galactic world market/currency exchange system. If you're living on a planet that deals mostly in one species (say humans and Earth and their colonies) I'd imagine they probably deal in their own currency. But on the Citadel and any other melting pot places in the galaxy like the Omega Station, (where credits are obviously used) how the hell would this shit work?
2: Credits. Is that only the neutral currency in the galaxy or does every single economy use it now? When that Volus from ME1 talks about all the different economies, are the economies of colonies of one species differentiating from each other? Like how the dollar is worth more in the states then the dollar in Canada? Eden Primes credits aren't as much as Earth's or maybe they are more because of the whole Prothean gold mine. How much does it differentiate from species to species when if credits are taken into account? So many questions that don't matter too much but my dumb ass always thinks about it and I'm not even at all versed with economics.
3: Omni-tools. Seriously what the fuck are they. Wrist bands? Hand held devices that project them? There are supposed to be mini fabricators and in some cases mass effect field generators attached to them so how small are they actually? I don't think they can be implants. IN ME3 they mention something about weapon parts being smuggled onto the citadel in a text log email thing you can find, inside hollowed out omni-tools... what? How?
4: If Joke breaks his legs while in the middle of space on the way to the bathroom is the Normandy stranded? Do they have a back up pilot? Does he get casts put on by Chakwas and then just goes back to his job? (I honestly imagine that last one to be true given his work ethic)
5:How common is space travel? Like, maybe not owning your own ship capable of using mass relays, but traveling to other planets in your solar system or even going back and forth between systems? Is it only for the rich and those who's jobs require them to do so? Do the vast majority of people/species, remain on their planets/colonies and the citadel if they are born there? Can any jackass just jump on a shuttle?
6:Military Question. Honestly should have been number 1 but I forgot about it until just now. When Space Travel/combat is the most common thing in the galaxy, do all other forms of armed forces, Army, Air Force, etc, get absorbed into the Navy? I mean, if they are flying in space they can probably figure out flying in atmo (Joker being prime example) and I'd imagine with their tech most if not all of their ships can go into water just fine. Navy Seals and Marines may be in the navy and deal with water but they do a lot of land work to, or actually I think They have Sea and Land positions. Regardless it feels like having those different branches is unnecessary even if you are fighting boots on the ground.
7:Do Turians and Humans need to take special antibiotics to bang just like the Quarians do when they mate outside their species? Asking for a friend.
8:How common are cybernetic enhancements/prosthetics? Saren, Kai Leng, and Shepard after they die, seem to be the only ones that have these. Biotics have implants sure but I'm talking cyberpunk levels of Neural links and shit like that. Hell, half the time I wonder when Shepard holds their hand up to their ear to talk if they have one of those tiny communicators or just an internal communicator. I mean the omni-tool is supposed to be used for communication purposes as well but they don't always get pulled out for making a call.
9:I'm forgetting the rest and this is definitely not short. I need to know though if asari are hermaphrodites or just females capable of mating with everything.
10:Virus, colds, disease, cancer. Is any of this cross contamination a high risk (obvs with quarians it is I'm not asking for them) Like when you travel from earth to another planet or the citadel do you need to get space malaria shots? Not diving into this one this has been long enough and I need to sleep.
Thanks for any feedback if I get any at all.

2023.03.30 14:09 moonlight-lemonade Allergic asthma + pollen season and diet
Just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this. Ive been losing weight since October, doing well. Allergy season hit a few weeks ago and suddenly I'm hungry all the time and going over my calories every day. I'm still losing, even if it's slowed, so it's not the end of the world, but it's frustrating.
Before anyone asks, I have an allergist, I'm on meds, she just raised my inhaler dose to see if it helps, but overall, because of the hell that is perimenopause, my allergies got WAY worse, so this might just be me for the next few months.
So my breathing is not dangerous, and I'm functional, but it's definitely not what it should be. I'm more tired, exercise has gotten to be me just phoning it in or skipping (which is sad, because I was doing really well and enjoyed what I was doing).
I finally decided to just up my calories until I feel better (maybe May, definitely June). My body is in stress right now and I can't do anything about it (more than what I'm already doing). So maybe having a large calorie deficit is not what I should be doing right now. Not that mine was that large. I don't have it set to sedentary because I'm not sedentary (even though many here would think I am). I eat back exercise calories. I eat more when I'm PMSing. Basically, I'm very much into not starving myself and losing in a healthy way by eating a sensible deficit. But right now, with my body under constant stress, that sensible deficit is still too much.
It's just annoying but not much I can do. Just wondering, anyone else?

2023.03.30 14:08 ChoccoAllergic 25 [M4F] UK / Europe / Anywhere - Tall, Strong, Adventurous, Loving, and Funny Guy Looking For His Soulmate
My name is Kenan (pics)
and I’m a 25-year-old civil engineer who now makes scale models for a living. I’m from Cornwall, UK, and I’m looking for a genuine connection and relationship with someone who can share my passion for nerdy hobbies, travelling, and personal growth.
I run a business that makes scale model kits for tabletop gaming. It’s a hobby that turned into a career that I absolutely adore. I get to be creative and work on something I enjoy every day.
I enjoy gaming with friends online or in person, painting miniatures, strongman training to challenge myself physically, crafting things with wood or metal or anything else I can find (I've made knives, bows, boats, and more)! I also love exploring nature and camping/ hiking or bushcrafting, playing D&D and dark heresy, voice acting for fun (and sometimes paid), cooking delicious meals and experimenting with different cuisines, and so much more!
I’m big into strongman training, which suits my build well. I'm tall at 187cm, and I weigh 120 kg. I'd describe my physique as ‘kinda fit kinda fat’; very strong with a bit of extra weight. I work out a lot, eat healthily, and will continue to do so! Strength training has massively helped with my hypermobility, so it's absolutely something I'll be doing for a long time to come.
I’m an open-minded, empathetic, and loving guy, who has a lot of love to give to the right person. I cherish quality time with people I really care about. I love travelling and seeing new cultures, learning about history and global issues, and generally trying to better understand myself and the world around me. I’m always curious and eager to learn new things and expand my horizons. I would love to find a partner who shares this mindset.
I want a true life partner; someone I can love with all my heart, and who will do the same for me. Someone who is kind, honest, loyal, and supportive. Someone who has similar interests and values as me, but also has their own personality and goals. Someone who is adventurous and willing to try new things with me, but also enjoys cuddling on the couch and watching movies. Someone who is looking for a long-term relationship that is based on mutual respect, trust, and affection.
Something else that’s important for me is that I don’t drink, smoke, or do drugs at all. It’s just not my thing. I prefer to enjoy life without any substances that might alter my perception or mood. I don’t mind if you drink occasionally or socially, but I don’t want to be with someone who smokes (I am asthmatic) or does drugs regularly.
There’s so much more to say, but I’d rather save that for if we get to chatting! If you think we might be a good match, send me a message and tell me something about yourself! Or add me on Discord (preferred); Kiwipie#0248
I look forward to talking!

2023.03.30 14:05 A-Dikinjer-Hass Early to Late 2000's Upbeat Song (Male singer, possibly a band)
I was listening to Mambo No 5, and it unlocked a random song memory from when I was younger. I remember loving a song that had the same upbeat feel as Mambo No 5 but I'm pretty sure the lyrics had something to do with "been all over the world, and I still love you" or something to that effect. Or maybe "Ive been everywhere and i still love you"
Anything helps guys, thanks!

2023.03.30 14:04 Mayhem_Cheesecake AITA for telling my brother "not to waste food"?
I (19F) Decided to go with my mother (36M) and my brother (14M) to a local Chinese restaurant near us. But when we went there and started getting our meal my brother suddenly put his utensils away and ate with his hands (reminder that my brother also didn't wash his hands, he never does...)
I ask him why he didn't use the fork and knife given to us. My brother then grunted and annoyingly told my mom that I didn't let him eat, I did let him eat but just questioned why with his grubby figures that he just used to play with his friends with outside. My mother yelled at me to leave him alone and "There aren't many people here!"
This was a popular restaurant, of course there were people around us.
Later, my brother gave back with a whole plate of rice (yes, that restaurant also had a mini buffet.) and a little bowl full of sauce. I knew he wasn't going to finish it all since he wasn't even done with his first dish and usually doesn't eat much rice. The moment I stared at him he threw a mini tantrum and told my mom to "make me not stare." how could you not look at a teenager causing a scene.
TURNS OUT HE TOOK ⅔ OF THE RICE THAT WAS LEFT.
I told him that he shouldn't take that much and to only take how much you knew you were going to eat. He threw his plate on the table and went outside with a pouty attitude. My mother yelled loudly how embarrassing I am and going at it how I could not have finish my second plate which only had one little onigiri left. I complained to her about the matter of my brother and how he shouldn't take the whole thing. My mother left for him, Come to find out my brother was sitting criss-crossed on the middle of the empty street. She got so fed up with us that she ended up paying and leaving with us immediately.
My family is known for doing chaotic things like these but I'm really sensitive (and petty) when it comes to wasting food due to a trauma long ago. I know that was pretty harmless yet troublesome to be in but it's still annoying and would like to share it.
(Sorry if my English wasn't that good in those paragraphs, it isn't my first language)

Sharing Jims's responses to my follow up questions for CONTEXT on 11/15/2022: 1) - Has Niocorp recently applied for a DoE/LPO loan for "debt"..?
"We are indeed in discussions with several U.S. federal agencies about potential financial assistance to the Project, but all have very strict rules about disclosure of those discussions and processes. I’m sorry but I cannot say anything more about this at present.
" 2) - Could any additional CO2 capture methods still be possible by ex-situ, direct mineralization, or other methods now being undertaken via the New Process?
"The reagent recycling tied to the Calcium and Magnesium removal, which we recently announced as part of our demonstration plant operations, is effectively a carbon sink and is expected to reduce the carbon footprint of the eventual operation
3) - Who owns the patent/rights to this New Process being implemented? Or can it be licensed moving forward?
"We hold the rights to any intellectual property developed and related to the Elk Creek process by virtue of our contractual relationships with L3 and other entities involved in the work. While our focus remains on using proven commercial technologies in the public domain, we will act to protect the parts of our process that may be novel. "

NioCorp Rare Earth Demonstration Plant Showing Positive Rare Earth Recovery Results NioCorp Rare Earth Demonstration Plant Showing Positive Rare Earth Recovery Results - NioCorp Developments Ltd. https://preview.redd.it/229cui302vqa1.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=2a4f9802a34182fee1c34f557bab2ab622e901b9 CENTENNIAL, Colo. (January 4, 2023) – NioCorp Developments Ltd. (“NioCorp” or the “Company”) (TSX:NB) (OTCQX:NIOBF) today announced that its demonstration-scale processing plant (the “demonstration plant”) in Quebec, Canada has succeeded in obtaining a rare earth dissolution rate of 86-95% from Elk Creek ore through hydrochloric acid leaching, and has achieved a loading rate of rare earths as high as 99% in the follow-on solvent extraction recovery step. These relatively high rates, which were expected, point to potentially strong rates of overall recovery of separated rare earth oxides, subject to additional demonstration testing over the coming weeks. Additional solvent extraction steps will be deployed to establish the ultimate recovery rates of potential rare earth products. The demonstration plant has further established that the rare earths recovered in the initial solvent extraction step are accompanied by only two impurities of note: iron and a very small amount of nickel. Given the success of this initial separation step, L3 and NioCorp expect that losses in the additional solvent extraction steps would be low. NioCorp is currently focused on demonstrating its ability to recover three high-purity rare earth products: (1) neodymium-praseodymium (“NdPr“) oxide, which is the principal component of neodymium-iron-boron (“NdFeB“) permanent rare earth magnets, (2) Dysprosium (“Dy“) oxide, and (3) Terbium (“Tb“) oxide. Both Dy and Tb oxide are critical to the type of powerful NdFeB magnets used in the traction motors of electric vehicles. However, very little of these high-purity separated rare earth products are made outside of Asia.
“These results are in line with our expectations and they show that the ongoing work at the plant is proceeding in a positive direction,” said Scott Honan, NioCorp’s Chief Operating Officer. “In the coming weeks, we look forward to seeing the final results from the separations extractions testing that is now underway and to reporting those results to the public.”
(APRIL 4th 2023 -will be 12 WEEKS out.... Expecting Results SOON IMHO....)

Feb. 2nd 2023 THE NYTIMES ARTICLE DROPS ~Nebraskans Are Sitting on Strategic Metals. Is Mining a Patriotic Duty?~ By Dionne Searcey Nebraskans Are Sitting on Strategic Metals. Is Mining a Patriotic Duty? - The New York Times (nytimes.com) Mr. Honan, NioCorp’s chief operating officer, on Beverly Beethe’s farm. “The rocks are different here,” he said.
ELK CREEK, Neb. — In this rural part of Nebraska, county-board agendas include moratoriums on solar farms and some residents scowl when they pass the handful of wind farms that have sprouted. But the idea of a new mine that could help power the transition to renewable energy has received broad support.
The tenor of these quiet flatlands, where deer bounce across gravel roads and neon sunsets scream across the long horizon, would change dramatically if mining for metals like niobium, scandium, titanium and rare earths begins.
But many people here think Southeast Nebraska, dotted with dying downtowns and aging residents, could play a small part in helping to solve a full-blown geopolitical crisis that Doc Evans, a Johnson County commissioner, summed up like this: “The trouble with China.”
Mr. Evans and numerous others welcome the digging that a company called NioCorp wants to begin because they feel it’s their patriotic duty. For too long, they said, the United States has depended on other countries for metals and minerals the nation could find at home, if only someone were willing to spend the money and effort to retrieve them.
“I think it’s good for our country,” said Don Othmer, who lives in Elk Creek, where the mine would be. Relying on other countries for raw materials means “we’re kind of held hostage,” he said.
Geological fate meted out hundreds of millions of years ago left the United States lacking rich stores of many of the raw materials found on the federal list of minerals
critical to the economy and national security. The country has relied on imports of certain minerals and metals that are abundant in China and elsewhere and are needed for America’s fighter jets
, building materials and cellphone batteries.
The United States is determined to no longer be dependent on other countries, particularly now as these materials, which are also used in making electric-vehicle batteries and for transmitting energy from wind turbines and solar panels to the power grid, are key ingredients for an economy that relies on renewables. Measures enacted under the Biden Administration offer major incentives to mining companies and processing facilities to do their work domestically.
But the biggest incentive is the market demand that has increased the price of metals including rare earths — a set of elements found together, with names like terbium and dysprosium — making it newly economical for mining companies to scour the nation for even small amounts that can be scraped from underneath the soil. Downtown Tecumseh, Neb., one of the nearby towns that would feel ripple effects from a new mine.
NioCorp wants to bring in hundreds of workers and heavy drilling equipment to dig the metals. After decades of exploration and looking for financing, it soon may be able to get started, buoyed by new demand for a domestic supply of critical minerals and metals that can power America’s transition to renewable energy. And the company has embraced the messaging that plays well in this conservative area that counts patriotism as a key value.
“It will help America,” said Mark Smith, chief executive of NioCorp, which is based in Colorado.
The federal government is hoping to find new deposits of minerals and metals
by carrying out projects to digitize information from 100-year-old geological maps and by flying survey planes all over the country. The government is also financing programs to comb through waste piles of old mines, including coal ash, for materials once deemed worthless. One program tests ways to sift minerals and metals from Superfund sites.
“Can the U.S. meet its own mineral supply needs? It’s a big, complicated question,” said Graham Lederer, researcher at the United States Geological Survey’s Geology, Energy & Minerals Science Center. “Anything could be a resource. You just need to develop the technology and bring the cost down.”
Just outside Elk Creek, pronounced by some locally as “Elk Crick,” workers from NioCorp are clearing trees to prep the land for digging, should it succeed in getting more financing
. The company, now listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange, said it has lined up German buyers for some of its niobium.
Hundreds of people and a new governor-elect turned up for a series of town halls in November held by NioCorp. The meetings drew investors from Kansas City who snapped photos as they wandered Elk Creek’s tiny downtown past a bank, a post office, small grocery store and the Village Tavern, which is known for its signature drink, the Elk Creek Water (Mountain Dew, Squirt, 7 UP, vodka and gin) as well as an annual event where beef testicles are served (the “Nut Feed”).
“We’ve had a harder time keeping the younger generation here,” said Don Gottula, who owns a propane shop on Main Street. “We need a booster shot, I guess you could say.”
As the hunt for more materials used in batteries continues, energy officials predict more scenes across America like the one in Nebraska, a state with abundant cornfields and cattle but no operating mines. In Utah, a mine has begun producing tellurium
. A new cobalt mine in Idaho
is expected to be operational this year. New lithium mining
is planned for North Carolina, and in California companies are trying out new technology to extract lithium from geothermal brines
The world may need more than 300 new mines in the next decade to meet demand for electric-vehicle and energy-storage batteries, according to Benchmark Mineral Intelligence
In Nebraska, metals that were a distant memory from high school chemistry class have become part of regular conversation. Like most people in the Elk Creek area, any of the dozen or so farmers who gather for morning coffee several days a week before the lanes light up at Harvest Bowl
in nearby Tecumseh can speak fluently about niobium.
“Didn’t they put that in Superman’s underwear?” one joked on a recent morning.
Niobium might help batteries hold a charge longer, another said, and that’s a good thing out here where miles separate even gas stations. But did anyone ever consider what happens to the wind turbines and solar panels years from now when they no longer function?
“When they wear out there’s no place to go with them,” said Milton Buchholz, a retired farmer and former county roads department worker.
The conversation turned to the prairie fires and dust storms that swept across parts of Nebraska last summer. The crop-withering drought just won’t let up.
“I’m not convinced whether this is all man-made or God-made,” said Mr. Evans, the county commissioner who sat at a table near farmers in hats advertising pesticides and fertilizer and one that read “cow whisperer.”
“I know that we may be contributing but who did it 100,000 years ago when we had an Ice Age?” he added.
To build the mine here, workers would burrow nearly 2,500 feet into the earth, creating an underground mini city to operate machinery. Construction would take almost three years, requiring 400 workers and convoys of heavy trucks rumbling across the plains surrounding Elk Creek, population 98.
“If we want to give our kids a chance, we’ve got to use the resources we have,” said Harold Richardson, a farmer and retired teacher from Elk Creek.
China is the world’s main producer and processor of scandium and rare earths. America has only one rare earth mine, in Mountain Pass, Calif. It sends its ore to China for processing. (Mr. Smith of NioCorp is the former chief executive of MolyCorp, which used to own the Mountain Pass mine.)
Brazil is by far the world’s biggest producer of niobium, which is used to strengthen steel. China Molybdenum
, a state-backed company, bought a key niobium mine in Brazil in 2016.
The importance of having a domestic stash of metals was highlighted in 2010 when China blocked exports of rare earths to Japan
during a dispute over a fishing trawler incident, sending prices soaring. Since then, tensions between the United States and China only have escalated, prompting fears about politically and economically motivated supply-chain disruptions.
NioCorp executives say the amount of metals they could recover at Elk Creek
would be scant compared to the Chinese supply; they are still determining whether they can economically retrieve the rare earths. The company plans to dig titanium, too (China, Japan and Russia are among the world’s biggest titanium producers), but niobium is the most abundant metal at the site, and if operations go forward, Elk Creek would be the only niobium mine in America.
Company executives say they expect demand for the metal to increase for use in new versions of lithium ion electric vehicle batteries under development.
NioCorp has obtained all the necessary permits to start digging. But if it digs the rare earths, NioCorp may need to look overseas for processing. A new processing facility that is in the works in Texas could take years to become operational.
“I’d really want to see these activities done in the United States or an allied country” such as Japan or Britain, said Mr. Smith of NioCorp.
New demand for greener sources of energy is fueling interest from Wall Street in the Elk Creek mine. But the messaging from NioCorp tends to focus on the metals’ traditional uses — in oil pipelines and guided missiles, residents said.
“NioCorp is being very thoughtful in how they’re communicating with Southeast Nebraskans,” said State Senator Julie Slama, who represents constituents in Johnson County, which has voted Republican in every presidential election since the 1960s. “In Nebraska, we have a sense of patriotism and desire to serve our country.”
People have been talking about a mine in Elk Creek since the early 1970s when, according to local lore, pilots reported their instruments went haywire while flying over southeast Nebraska. The real story: University researchers received a federal grant to fly over the state with instrumentation that identified changes in the earth’s magnetic field, indicating the possible presence of certain minerals and metals.
“The rocks are different here,” said Scott Honan, NioCorp’s chief operating officer.
Back then local workers were hired to carry out exploratory drilling, digging up hundreds of core samples, tubes of earth, for testing. Stacks of them are stored in metal sheds on Beverly Beethe’s farm, where the mine would be located. Residents signed land leases with the company, which eventually bought 226 acres. Some landowners netted lucrative deals and could receive royalty payouts of as much as $10 million a year.
But the deals created bad blood. Some residents who were left out were miffed. Others like Ms. Beethe question whether they got a fair deal, especially in an area where the price of farmland has recently skyrocketed
“The way I got treated, I hope that they don’t treat the community that way,” she said.
Many residents also are worried about damage from the toxic chemicals used in mining and processing.
They wonder about cancer cases near the mine site. Rare earth metals are found alongside radioactive elements. Mr. Smith said that at Elk Creek the amounts are so small they don’t require state licensing, but he said as a precaution NioCorp plans to seek licensing anyway and will carry out required monitoring.
Higher paying jobs would be welcome in the area, residents said, but still they wondered, how will the mine ever be able to find 400 workers? The nearby state prison has tried to fill vacancies by nearly doubling starting pay, to $28 an hour. Staff shortages are so severe at the local school district that the superintendent is pondering a four-day week for the next academic year. He already doubles as a bus driver because he can’t fill the job.
And what if the workers do come? “Where the hell are 400 more people going to eat in this town?” said Tim Weber, who opposes the mine.
Residents like Lavon Heidemann, a former lieutenant governor from Elk Creek, have benefited from the mine already. He was paid to help drill exploratory hole No. 7 back in the 1970s and now works as a local representative for NioCorp, fielding questions from his neighbors.
Mr. Heidemann sometimes stares out from his hilltop farm at the blinking lights on the wind turbines several miles away. They bug him a little. He worries the nation might be transitioning too quickly to renewables. But, he said, the Elk Creek mine would be good for America.
“I wish it wasn’t in my backyard, but it is. Other people sacrificed, and we need to sacrifice too,” Mr. Heidemann said. “I love this country to no end. We have challenges today and if we can help make it a better place in an environmentally safe way then, hot dog, I want to be a part of that.”

FEB. 6th, 2023 ~NioCorp’s Rare Earth Demonstration Plant Showing Strong Rare Earth Recovery Results, in Line with Expectations~ NioCorp's Rare Earth Demonstration Plant Showing Strong Rare Earth Recovery Results, in Line with Expectations - NioCorp Developments Ltd. CENTENNIAL, Colo. (February 6, 2023) – NioCorp Developments Ltd. (“NioCorp” or the “Company”) (TSX:NB) (OTCQX:NIOBF) today announced that its demonstration-scale processing plant (the “demonstration plant”) at L3 Process Development in Quebec, Canada has succeeded in producing a high-purity mixed rare earth concentrate from NioCorp’s integrated demonstration plant. These encouraging results lend support to the technical feasibility of separating high-purity oxides of several key magnetic rare earths, on which the U.S. is presently 100% dependent, primarily from China, from ore comprising the Elk Creek Critical Minerals Project (“Project“). NioCorp’s patent-pending demonstration scale rare earth extraction and purification solvent extraction process operation is ongoing in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec, using solutions generated by the upstream operations of the demonstration plant. The rare earths were then precipitated out of solution, producing a solid that contains 6% praseodymium (“Pr“) oxide, 25% neodymium (“Nd”) oxide, 0.35% terbium oxide (“Tb“), and 1.6% dysprosium (“Dy“) oxide, with the balance of the solids consisting primarily of rare earths with minor base metal impurities.
Based on these results, and subject to additional demonstration testing over the coming weeks, L3’s process engineering team have determined that overall recoveries for these four magnetic rare earths are likely to be greater than 92% and meet commercial purity specifications for magnetic rare earth oxides.

2023.03.30 13:59 FoxenInTheHenhice [TOMT][Short story][<2003] A man is stranded on an island (and his teammates didn't survive, I think) and grows weaker because of lack of food while a lion or tiger also follows him and he quickly catches a fish at one point to eat while the lion is after him
I read this in school in the early 2000s and we were given printouts with illustrations on them. There is a tiny chance that it could be the last chapter of a book too.
I don't recall the beginning but I think the man and others were shipwrecked on this island. It wasn't a desert island and there may have been lush greenery. He was the only one to make it to the end of the story. Throughout the story, the lion's presence is there.
I recall one scene when the lion is following the now-emaciated man and he manages to crawl to a body of water, pull out a fish and eat it. He felt some energy because of that. Either he was able to fight the lion or the lion was still there and he was rescued by a ship. He may have made a boat to drift out into sea with the wood on the island. (However, I might be confusing it with Sinbad or Ishmael using Queequeg's coffin).
The ending had him waking up on the ship where they gave him food. The starving man ate and ate until he gained a lot of weight. It ended with him saying something along the lines of 'Food is the greatest thing in the world'.

2023.03.30 13:55 AmbitiousTypes My now-wife and I got the case of the fuck-it's, cancelled our massive $20,000 October desert wedding, and eloped while on vacation in Maui on Friday. My favorite person said 'I do' in the middle of my favorite forest on my favorite island in the world. Happy is an understatement.
2023.03.30 13:54 Unique_Algae Strangest most vivid nightmare
Let me preface this by saying that I took a pretty high dosage of melatonin for the first time in a couple of months. The first thing I remember is being in an operating room and a surgeon pulling and rearranging these like fiber wires coming out of my brain. It was insanely intricate and he was explaining the process of how each movement would bettefix problems with my brain function. After the operation for some reason I needed to be “reborn” (this is where shit gets weird) and I was literally put back inside my mother and birthed again. I think the reasoning behind this was to like reset my body. Well anyway, afterwards I feel really good and I’m having nice heart to heart moments with all of my family members and soon after it’s bedtime. (This next part is kind of irrelevant but I’ll tell it anyway) I wake up in the middle of the night on the couch thinking I’m alone and start playing rocket league for some reason. (I think I’ve been playing a bit too much rocket league recently) and I notice that my aunt? is in the room and she is still sleeping. So I turn the console and tv off (forfeiting my comp game in the process, sadge) and head to bed. I’m sleeping well but then I start to have these tiny random hallucinations and like a migraine sort of feeling. I think I’m awake but I soon realize that I’m just dreaming so I calm down and just let the nightmares/hallucinations keep going hoping they’ll stop soon, but they keep getting worse. Then I see this huge grotesque fat sweaty man (hidden in the darkness) with a kitchen knife walk slowly into my room as he becomes clearer and clearer to see and then he starts stabbing me repeatedly. I know it’s not real but I start to call for help as the head pains get worse. I soon realize that in “real life” I’m being rushed around by family members and I’m convulsing. I’m sort of whispering different phrases like help me, thank you, and I’m thinking I don’t deserve this kindness, why would they help ME? when suddenly I have this realization that I’m possessed and now I’m starting to violently fly around in the air while I’m convulsing. This is all happening while my consciousness is split between the “dream” and “reality. This all reaches a sort of head after a second, where it become too much for me and I woke up in real life. After waking up I had the realization that my dream subconscious interpreted myself as a devil like figure and that fat man as a god figure trying to purge me/the devil from the world. This is probably the scariest dream I’ve ever had. It felt so real and vivid (probably why I remember so much). I don’t usually have nightmares and when I do I’m really good at just realizing that I’m in a dream and that It’s all ok, so it’s kinda crazy how I was able to incept myself inside of a dream and scare the living shit out of myself like this. I don’t think I’ll be taking melatonin again for a while. Just reliving this is scaring me.
One last thing - if any of you have taken antidepressants you might know what serotonin/brain zaps are. Well this is the best way to describe what the head pains felt like in the dream.

2023.03.30 13:46 aadha_taklu MSBA at T20 program vs MS Statistics at T54 program??
Hello everyone! I hope you are having a great day! I had posted the same post on Statistics
and now want your take on it to get a balanced view.
I am an international student in my late 20s from engineering background. I have an above-average mathematics background but lack programming skills, though I expect to become proficient before joining my masters. I am a quick learner and reasonably good at self-learning. Though I have some work experience, it is not in pure statistics or data analytics, so I consider myself a fresher to both fields.
Though I feel that MS in Statistics is a better program than MSBA/MSDS because I feel having in-depth technical knowledge should be preferred over generalist programs, I am not too sure if MS Stats offers equally good opportunities after graduation. I applied to and got rejected from Statistics programs at Penn State, UIUC, Virginia Tech, Columbia, and Purdue, probably because of my poor grades in undergrad, where I was not matured enough and focused on extracurriculars and ignored studies. Since I started applying very late in this cycle, was initially overwhelmed by the process and wasn't even sure if I'll get an admit to MS Stats, I missed lots of other good statistics programs and applied to MSDS/MSBA programs as well.
I have various offers but these are my top 3 at the moment - IUB Statistics
- Though not highly ranked at T54 (Statistics, USNews) or T170 (University rank), I am looking forward to the IUB Statistics program as I feel that I will be more comfortable with a math-heavy curriculum. The 2-year course duration, small batch size, and relatively reasonable tuition were a few other factors. Also, this program offers an option of a tuition waiver in the case of TA/GA, so I was expecting to save significant money and graduate almost debt-free. There is an IU Statistical Research Centre as well, where most students get the opportunity to pursue an internship and gain some sense of statistics in real-world applications, which is a plus. Also, this comment
and a friend who is a postdoctoral researcher in Stats at the T10 Stats program has told me to join IUB and skip the MSBA programs. UCLA MSBA
- UCLA on the other hand is a T20 Uni and Anderson is a T15 (MBA) college. Their faculty also seems well qualified with good industry experience, and I think the quality of education should be world-class. One of their professors contributes to the R library and has one of the highest downloads as well; another one has really good papers published and has experience working with Uber on the Price-surge model. Primarily, I think my goal of pursuing quality education from the US will be fulfilled by the experience here. But this is all in my mind; kindly correct me if I am wrong. Also, this program is pretty expensive and won't make sense if I can't snag a $150k+ placement. Goizueta/Emory MSBA
- Goizueta is T20 (MBA) and Emory is T82 ranked Uni but doesn't seem anywhere close to UCLA Anderson from my experience till now and the MSBA program is pretty short at just 10 months. But their placement stats are pretty attractive, and they have offered a reasonable scholarship to me and promised a bit more in the next few weeks. So, this seems like a reasonable option just based on the placement/fee paid ratio. Curriculum
- IUB Stats
vs UCLA MSBA
vs Goizueta MSBA Placement
- Though not exactly apples-to-apples, I am bound to compare the average starting salaries of these programs. Both MSBA are under business schools and they seem to have a solid and dedicated career services and they take placement of their students seriously. There are various opportunities like Internship, Co-op programs or Monthly employer meets to ease the placement process. Also, the employer panel at UCLA is very impressive and covers a diverse range of sectors - Career Impact UCLA Anderson School of Management
. The UCLA MSBA program mentions a $115,000 Avg Starting Salary, whereas the Goizueta MSBA program mentions a $100,000 Median Starting Salary. Both quote above 95% placements within 3 months of graduation on their webpage.
Whereas for IUB Stats, placements are not the priority and there is not much support from the dept and you have to undertake the whole process by yourself. I went through the alumni details
on the IUB Statistics webpage, and it shows placement data of around 6 people for 2020, 6 for 2021 and 4 for 2022 batches for both the Master's programs. Also, there is no mention of remuneration anywhere.
According to the COL Calculator
, a starting salary of $115k in LA is equivalent to $77K in Atlanta and $75k in Bloomington. This puts the $100k at Goizueta way higher than UCLA's $115k weirdly. Fees and COL
- I am expecting to spend less than $70k ($42K tuition) over 2 years at IUB Stats. If I become the TA/GA, I expect some further tuition waiver and graduate debt-free. The UCLA MSBA program should cost me around $110k ($70k tuition) for 15 months. I am yet to receive/expecting a scholarship award from them. The Goizueta MSBA program should cost $92k ($60k tuition after a $20k scholarship) for 10 months. The Goizueta team has promised more scholarships in the next few weeks.
I come from a lower-middle-class family and will be taking out huge loans to pay for all the programs. Though I am debt-averse, I don't mind going for a moderately expensive program, if the future career prospects outshine the cheaper one. Opportunity and VISA
- Since I am an international student and plan to stay in the US for the foreseeable future, work opportunities and my VISA matter a lot to me. Will there be any quantifiable difference in the opportunities I will get if I have one university on my resume over the other? How much will this affect my chances of getting an H1B visa sponsorship in the future?
Before anyone mentions that university/college doesn't matter at all, it did in my case. If I had not completed my undergrad at a Tier-1 institution, I would not be getting any offers, considering my 2.6 CGPA and a sizeable gap period. Other offers
- I don't expect you to know about every other program out there, but I'm sharing just for information.
MSBA - UC Irvine ($52k tuition after scholarship, 1 year); Data Science - Notre Dame ($60k, 16 months); Data Analytics - Boston University MET ($62k, 1 year). I am still waiting for decision from ASU Statistics, NEU Analytics, UMCP MSBA, UCSD MSBA, UIUC Predictive Analytics.
I may seem confused to some people, because I am. Which one will be a better choice in case of opportunities - an expensive but top-ranked generalist program from a top ranked college or a lower ranked specialized program from a good college with almost no fee?
Thank you for your time. Any advice is appreciated.

2023.03.30 13:34 tspinthru Black sheep this thread is for you
I (33m)/ no kids, am the middle of a half dozen adult siblings. Parents and siblings all TBM except for the youngest whose just kind of finding their way. All of my siblings went to BYU, a couple served missions, I have a double digit quantity of nieces and nephews.
I stopped going to TSCC asap in early adulthood. I joined the Marine Corps, went to an in state university. I’ve always worked really hard, I hated being broke when I was a kid. I did a lot of solo traveling just to experience new places and people. I never bought into “the world” is filled with evil and “non members”. I’m agnostic more than anything, and if there were any truth to non denominational Christianity I could never wrap my head around it after long term submersion in the LDS bastardized version of it.
Overall my experience growing up in the church was awful, I always thought everyone else was great with god but something was wrong with me. Bishop interviews were torturous and honestly damaging in my adolescence. The temple was a horrifying experience. I had to stop the madness. I couldn’t live with myself and stay any longer. I didn’t leave because of selfishness I left because of honesty; to myself.
It’s really weird having a large family and having close relationships with none of them. I have some great relationships otherwise, especially with my gf and her family. But it’s a lonely road feeling like I’m the only sane person in mine. My family are all really good people, and although I’ve accepted for years it will always be the way it is, I can’t stop mourning for the relationships we’ll never have, and how they’ll never experience true individuality outside the Mormon masks they’ll never take off.
I have one uncle that thinks like me. We meet once a year and sit at a bar and vent our complaints while we share a few beers.
I’d love to hear any comments from anyone with a similar experience. I know there’s plenty of black sheep out there, we’re silent observers by nature.

2023.03.30 13:34 StepwiseUndrape574 Huge GTA 6 Leak Claims Rockstar’s New RAGE9 Graphics Engine Is Incredible
Besides offering up chaotic open-world action, one thing that Rockstar's games have done ever since Grand Theft Auto III is push the envelope in terms of technology. This is somewhat debatable up to Grand Theft Auto IV, which stunned audiences with its mix of macro-scale simulation and micro-scale detail. GTA V and the newer Red Dead Redemption 2 have continued this tradition, and both are still capable of putting the hurt on modern PCs. That's largely thanks to their forward-looking design that integrates features that contemporary systems weren't really ready for when the released.
gtaonlinerain GTA V can still look startlingly realistic at times.
The thing is, even though it just got a re-release on the current-generation consoles, GTA V originally released in 2013. The game's still fun, of course, especially the online mode that has seen continual updates over the years. The technology behind the title is getting a little dated, though, and fans of the series are understandably chomping at the bit for a new release. Rockstar has confirmed that GTA VI (or at least, the next GTA game) is in the works, but as usual, the company hasn't released any information about the title, nor mentioned a release window.
The leaks and rumors that we've heard so far place a hypothetical "GTA VI" at the end of next year, or even in 2025. That's a lot of development time, even if the company only moved into active development in the middle of last year, as is supposedly the case. In a time when almost every other development house (from Square-Enix to CD Projekt Red) is moving to the Unreal Engine, it seems like Rockstar will thankfully stick with its own in-house tech, known as RAGE.
That bit of information comes from a tweet by Chris Klippel, who is among other things the creator of Rockstar Mag, a French-language gaming news site that focuses on topics surrounding Rockstar Games and its releases. You can see the tweet above. Chris says that he has been in touch with people who have seen the latest version of RAGE in action, and that its graphics engine is "assez incroyable." Chris describes the latest version as RAGE9, which is interesting; Rockstar doesn't talk about RAGE as a separate product from its games, likely because it doesn't license the tech.
gtaonlinearcade The arcade area added to GTA Online would look amazing with ray-traced lighting.
It's not hard to imagine what sort of features the game engine might include to warrant that description. Heavy usage of ray-traced graphics will go a long way toward impressive presentation, but based on what we've heard in the past about GTA VI, it seems likely that the latest RAGE might be more impressive in its ability to scale content from infinitesimal details all the way up to gigantic cityscapes. We've seen demonstrations of similar technology in Epic Games' Unreal Engine 5, and given the nature of "GTA", such capability would be perfectly suited to the games.
Another impressive characteristic in GTA VI might just be the NPC AI. Historically, Grand Theft Auto's NPCs have been extremely simple stand-ins mostly intended to give the scene a realistic look without having much in the way of personality or believable behavior. That could all change in the next GTA game, based on a patent filed in October 2020.
From what we've heard, the next Grand Theft Auto title will be set in Vice City once again, so look forward to exploring the city's tropical environs. No word on the chronological setting, though; it could be set as far back as the Cuban Missile Crisis, or it could be set in the modern day. We also don't know necessarily what platforms the title will appear for, but based on Rockstar's history, we'd expect it to be available for the PS5 and Xbox before it appears on PC later.

2023.03.30 13:34 Oxnodeia_Cresilia "Pokemon" around the area
So when I was doing my work I ran into some of these pokeballs everyone was talking about. In them I found some pokemon and I was curious so I went to Yuu who seems to know what they are and they gave me some information on the ones I have found. There were a lot of them around diasomnia.
1 - shiny eevee (I shall name them Waffles) 2 - gabite (asleep in pokeball, mad I woke it up ') 3 - magikarp (flopped in my face) 4 - riolu (stole my snacks but was interested in one of my magics. Maybe I can teach them..) 5 - shiny beldum (yuu mentioned something of "mega evolution looks rad af" seems weird but something to acknowledge) 6 - arcanine (very warm and fluffy) 7 - a shiny rayquaza (Yuu was freaked out, it is a large dragon like one... they know something we dont?) 8 - Absol (in a way sorta reminded me of malleus so imma nickname them Mallie)
There was also two eggs that I found. One was white with red and blue triangle shapes on it and the other is Translucent Blue with a red orb in the middle and with some small yellow dots in it? If you have any ideas please let me know about those last ones. But looks like I'll have a lot more mouths to feed. Luckily I have the money for it.... but I should ask Yuu again what they need to each eat. I doubt they all have the same diet.
Um, good luck to everyone with the 'pokemon'.

2023.03.30 13:33 EurekaStockade The AI Pause is Globalist BS--Globalists using reverse psychology to sell the Artificial Intelligence Big Lie
6 MONTH PAUSE ON AI DEVELOPMENT= 119
By getting Globalist stooges like Elon Musk to ask for a pause in AI development --Globalist are using reverse psychology to sell the AI Lie
There is no Artificial Intelligence--and there never will be
Machines can LEARN --but they cant THINK
There are no Quantum Super Computers
They are no Autonomous Robots
There is no Nanotechnology
Its all part of Globalists trying to convince the Younger Generations that they are scientifically progressing--when in fact science & technology have stagnated over the last 4 decades
Apart from the internet--which is just a fancy communications/surveillance network--nothing new has been invented
We could have cheap energy with nuclear plants--but instead we are going backwards
Economists have been awarding themselves Nobel Prizes for decades -- & what has come of it
We are back in the 70's with inflation & high unemployment & high energy prices--soon we will be lining up for petrol on alternate days--there will be rolling blackouts---& old people will be eating dog food---just like the 70's
Globalists believe if they talk about Artificial Intelligence often enough-- we'll believe it exists
They are hoping to establish Scientism as the New Age religion
The belief that science & technology will solve all our problems
That if we surrender all decision-making to an unbiased AI computer---we will usher in a Utopia-Heaven on Earth
Apparently-- even though humans are smart enough to create an Artificial Intelligence—we’re too dumb & greedy to solve our problems
Problems created deliberately by Globalists to sell their Resource Rationing Scheme
Engineered complexity & global economic inter-dependency that only an AI super-computer can handle
Thats why they push Climate Change Extinction--to sell the narrative that humans are stupid & selfish-- & destroying the environment--so they cant be trusted to make decisions
Instead an unbiased Machine God will make all the decisions for us---monitor & allocate resources-- reward the Worthy--and solve all the world's problems
The Utopia Lie is vital to selling Resource Rationing--Austerity
Saving the Planet
For the Greater Good
Heaven on Earth-- which of course they have no intention of delivering
Globalist arent Progressive--all they deliver is Stagnation-- Mediocrity-- Banality
Thats what the whole Progressive Agenda is all about
They think if they keep using the word Progressive --we wont notice the massive Stagnation

2023.03.30 13:32 ThrowRAludwin My gf [23F] “replaces” me [24M] with guy friends when we are long distance. Is it emotional cheating and should I mention it?
tldr; My gf has a pattern of making close guy friends (one of whom professed his love for her) when we have to go long distance. She doesn’t have many close guy friends normally. Would you consider this emotional cheating?
Multiple times my gf and I have had to go long distance, and I noticed after the most recent (and longest) one that she has a pattern of making really close male friends when this happens. To be fair, she is a bit of a bro and meets all her friends at the gym which is mostly male, but it still seems like a pattern to me.
The most recent one is the one I’m most concerned with, although I found out (she didn’t tell me which idk how to feel about, but her friend mentioned it not knowing I didn’t know) that one of these guys basically asked her out and wanted to leave his gf to be with her. I feel like it’s not unreasonable then to assume that these friendships can certainly be misconstrued as the kind that becomes a relationship. But anyways, the newest one was the longest we were apart and she became really close with a guy. They go to the gym 3-4 times a week, go on backpacking and skiing trips, and just hang out, smoke weed and drink pretty regularly. I know they’ve watched movies together 1 on 1 at night, which makes me kinda uncomfortable, but since she told me (not when it happened, but later on) about it I wouldn’t assume anything. The real kicker that I can’t wrap my head around is that they eat dinner together one on one before going to the gym most nights. That was surely going on for a while and she never mentioned it until I came to visit and she had invited him over for dinner and had to explain where that came from.
I hadn’t thought about it until recently, but to a lot of people that’s a date, not a hangout.I can’t imagine a world in which, long distance, I invited a smoking hot chick I became friends with over to have dinner one on one with me without my gf knowing. And I think excluding sex and cuddling she basically replaced me with him as a surrogate bf while I’m away. We’re no longer long distance so I think some parts of what they do have dwindled, but I still notice their closeness and sometimes I feel like I’m third wheeling them. Maybe I’m spiraling, but I also feel like she seems to treat him bettegive him more attention sometimes. She recently went on a ski trip with him and some of his friends on a weekend that she definitely could have planned something with me. I don’t think she should spend every weekend with me, but we haven’t taken a trip in a while whereas the two of them have gone skiing or backpacking like 5 or 6 times in the last 6 months. It seems like she thought of him first.
The crazy thing is that I still don’t think there’s a world in which she’s actually cheating on me. I guess the question then is, would you consider this emotional cheating? I cant tell if I’m just coping and rationalizing it all because I love her and I don’t think I should be meddling with her friendships, but also the more I think about it the more it feels like it’s crossing a boundary.
To be clear, I also haven’t expressed my discomfort to her, that’s on me. Figured I’d mention that since I assume many answers will be “talk about it”. Frankly, I don’t know how. Advice on that could be nice too!

2023.03.30 13:25 Nerdy1980s My farm
One square meter at a time.
Five years ago, I married into the farm life. Not a big farm, by any means, and more of a retirement hobby. Although "hobby farm" is like saying the ocean is moist.
But, for nearly 20 years prior, there was a homeless couple that lived on the farm, in a different area from the main house. They tore the living hell out the area they lived in.
They were hoarders. I mean, like the type you find on hoarder shows. Only they never had to worry about running out of land to put their stuff off. Dump truck loads of stuff we've hauled off in the last 5 years. From what I was told, the husband died of old age, and then the wife got ill and eventually ended up in a nursing home.
This is still an ongoing project. But this year, we're getting very close. Anyway, we finally got to the point where I'm literally sitting on the ground, picking up anything that isn't organic and i can see... one square meter at a time.
The only major item left is the actual decaying trailer they lived in (and then abandoned and lived outside the trailer after it got full). That's about 85% cleared out. Depending on the weather this year, we might be able to get the trailer hauled off this year. -Due to insects, we can only work on it during wintespring Once it gets too warm, we have to worry about bees, wasps, and most importantly, poisonous spiders. I live in the southeast USA.
Anyway, yesterday, I was literally scraping the dirt, at the bottom of their "garbage burn pit". I should get the last vestiges of that to the dump today. It was a burn pit about 7'x7', and when they decided they couldn't burn stuff fast enough, they turned into their main dump that grew to about 25'x40' and 6' high in the middle. I first started cleaning it about 3 years ago. Only the trailer (which is more like a single wide manufactured house) had more stuff than this pile outside.
But what spurred me to write this...
When I was raking the burn pit, to loosen up the half burnt garbage, a northern black racer snake.. a harmless snake that eats rats mostly.. but very beautiful up close, was stuck in a piece of plastic it tried to slither through, and I managed to cut the snake out of it's bind, and let it slither off into the field. 🤗

2023.03.30 13:17 cucumberboba all stars was bad. not as an opinion, but as a fact. i can explain.
- continuity did not exist. it almost felt as though the writers didn't care. all of a sudden, heather's lost her arc from world tour, courtney can jump off a cliff, and she can eat lactose now. it doesn't make any sense. this shows cheap writing.
- it wasn't as dramatic as the other seasons, and it felt centered around one storyline. that being mal and zoey. seriously, you let them get to the finale just because of some rushed antagonist story? it doesn't make sense.
- derailment. there was lots of derailment this season. look at heather, zoey, sierra, duncan, courtney, lindsay, jo, lightning, gwen, and mike. maybe even the whole cast was derailed and stripped of there original characteristics.
- cheap writing. that's all i have to say.
if i had the opportunity to rewrite a season, it would be this one.
