My SO and I are going on a cruise for the first time (msc splendida) and I have few questions:
1) I might take the thermal/spa package. At what time can we expect less people? is it accessible 24 hours a day?
2) When the boat is docked, can we leave it and come back when we want?
3) How is the food if I only have the basic package?
4) Are the parties on board extra?
Thank you all!

2023.03.29 11:29 panicked_butter Boomshakalaka - im so sorry

Im typing this at almost 2am on a phone so whatever standards ya have lower them to the fuckin floor. This shit's gonna be all over the place. No this isn't feel pity me or "im not like other girls" i just need to get all this shit off my chest.
The night before i turned 12 my mom had told me i could grt whateber haircut i wanted and she'd let me. This meant the world to me, i absolutely hated(and still do) having long hair. I had really long thick hair with natural highlights and it went way past my shoulders before i got it cut. Ever since i was little i remember constantly getting told that people paid hundreds to have it, i couldn't give a shit less and still couldn't, so, i got the levi ackerman haircut with a side part- the only time i had short hair before this was when i was a baby and it was growing. I was so excited, i felt so happy and proud because i was finally able to somewhat express myself. I was mainly excited to see what my papa thought/said though, he never told me happy birthday because he couldn't, like, he was too sick and physically hurt too. It hurt, but i understood. The day after my birthday aka the day after my haircut he passed away. I didn't get to talk to him or even say anything for about a week or more prior. That was last year, my birthday is coming up. Im not sure how to feel. I was excited to see what he had to say since he is/was rhe only positive male rolemodel in my life, he was like my father figure since my actaul dad is a peice of shit that should've left a long time ago but sticks around like a fucking leech or parasite. I've always been the bud of the jokes in my family since as long as i could remember, immediate and extended on both sides. I remember getting made fun of for being ,fat" when i was a toddler and it never stopped and still hasn't, in kindgergarten i developed a eating disorder that im still trying to get over. My family loves to say family is important yet the second one of the family members gets out of earshot they immediately start talking shit about them until they come back. When we got the call my papa passed we headed over to say our goodbyes, everyone complimenred my hair and we(me and my brothers) were trying to lighten the mood. We came back a little over a month later and my aunt and her kids were there. My cousin kept talking to me about my hair, they said "uncle (name) said you were probably gay" or "grandma says you look like a boy" and many other things along those lines, including thise exact things. What the fuck? I literally just got a haircut. My sexuality is and none of their fucking business. Especially not because of a haircut. I'll admit, im queer, that still doesn't make it ok for them to talk about me or anyone like that ever. They, and my own immediate family, are literally the reason i was only excited for my papa to see it
I remember being told if my papa had a favorite grandkid it was me. He bought me my first real bike, got me my first real fishing pole, taught me how to use those long stick styled knife sharpeners from when he owned a butcher shop, and sooo many other things i can list. You know those boxes of Raspberry filled powder donuts? He'd get those and give me one or two(at dif times obviously) and tell me to keep it a secret since it'd sometimes be before dinner. I remember he used to babysit me when i was little. I remember everything we did together, how on Saturday's he'd cook breakfast and save me a peice of crispy bacon and watch cartoons with me, how on a couple occasions i put face paint on him, another couple occasions i did his hair, and sooo sooo much more. In summer we did yard work, winter we helped put up christmas decorations(he loved to go all out and we accidentally started a little bit of a contest for a few years with the neighbors), and later in the summer we'd have(and still have) beach family reunions for four days at the campsite we've stayed at for years. And for my 10th birthday he got me my own box of Raspberry filled powder donuts, which i had to wrestle out of my brothers' and cousins' hands on a few occasions, all the same day. Now every now and then my uncle and/or gramma get me my own box.
I really miss my papa. All the great memories we had and made. I wish i could tell him about all the new things in my life since he passed since so much has changed. I got a puppy since she was rescued, my other dog is taller then me when she's on back legs, im going to a new school, i have great grades and got into leadership, im starting track, and so many other little things like the recipes I've tried/or made that i know he'd love, I've gotten counseling, and all the really stipid and funny things i do at school. All because he's the only one who'd every actaully tell me he was proud of me, the only one who was actaully excited and happy for and with me. Like yeah other people would get happy and excited too, but at the same time it feels like it's something they expected and it was just a fake. And the only other time i get told someone's proud of me is whenever it's a joking type of mood, all i want is for someone to tell me they're proud of me and it not be fake. My papa made a very specific type of potato salad, I've never had anything like it and nothing better then it. He said his secret was cream cheese and love, along with whatever else he had put in it that you wouldn't typically put in potato salad. I used to get huge servings of it and would always go back for more. My uncle and gramma have tried to remake it on a few occasions, i either mever ate it or ate a small amount. Everyone agreed it was different even though they'd followed the exact recipe. I miss it as stupid as it may sound.
I haven't cried about his passing but as i right this i feel like i might cry, or sneeze, i cant really tell yet they feel the same to me when the come on lol. I know this was a lot and i doubt anyone actaully read it all, but if you did thank you.

2023.03.29 11:11 marikasweet GET NIKE GIFTCARDS FOR FREE

Head to a Nike Outlet or Clearance store. Find a SHOE that is reduced in price very heavily, for example a $250 shoe reduced to $100. Once you find a shoe like this purchase it, I highly recommend buying a shoe with Nike Air. This would be something like Vapor Maxes, Airmaxes, & etc. NOT A SHOE LIKE ROSHES OR VAPORFLYS . . . I’ll explain why. Once you have bought this shoe, start wearing it for a couple days outside until it looks decently used. OKAY, now i'm going to explain why you want a shoe with AIR, you want to buy a shoe with air so you can pop it!!! AFter a couple wears hold a lighter to the air bubble until it pops OR slice the air bubble. Make sure it looks like an accident and not done purposely. Once all this has been done, head to: Fill out all your info and in the “Reason for Return” section state something like “I’ve been a loyal follower of Nike for years… blah blah blah … these shoes popped only after 5 wears and i'm extremely disappointed. I can no longer wear these shoes due to not having support due to the popped air bubble. Looking forward to your response” DON'T COPY THIS EXACTLY OR NIKE WILL START CATCHING UP, CHANGE IT UP AND MAKE IT SOUND BELIEVABLE. Once you are done with the form there will be the next page giving you instructions on how to return the shoes for credit. DO NOT SHIP THE SHOES IN THE BOX YOU GOT IT IN BECAUSE IT WILL SHOW THE PRICE THAT YOU BOUGHT IT BEFORE After 1 or 2 weeks you should receive a gift card for the RETAIL amount of the shoe. So if you bought a shoe for $50 and retail was $200, you just made $150 in profit easily.

2023.03.29 11:05 Pikkon423 Pretty Bummed

Sorry for length, mostly just a vent, but any advice or encouragement is welcome. So far I've applied to 10, rejected from 8, fairly sure 9 is coming, no GRFP or hon mention either. Was bummed about these but never really pinned my hopes on them as I was still pretty confident I was going to get in to my current institution with my current mentor. I was planning on staying anyways as I really do enjoy working with them and they are pretty well known in our field. However, now due to some inter-departmental bureaucratic slap fighting they are now threatening retirement. My closest friend in our group has had a few serious family emergencies and I'm bummed for them too. The paper we're co-authoring has also stalled out, they're a 3rd year PhD and the brains behind the core of the work and I'm struggling to fill in some of the gaps without their knowledge and have been feeling guilty about not being able to shoulder the load for them while they deal with their heavy personal stuff.
I'm still proud of how far I've come. I've struggled most of my life with school, high school gpa was around ~2.4. Spent 7 years in comm college changing majors and manged a ~3.2 gpa completely off of a very strong last two years (I thought I stopped being lazy but turns out I just learned how to cope with ADHD I recently discovered I likely have). In 3 years of uni I've managed to get a 3.77 taking a double majoring and a minor while working full-time most weeks. I've also completed internships I'm very proud of as well.
The last month and a half has just felt like an endless string of blows and I just feel old and tired. I've been looking forward to the day I graduate for years. It always felt like the crowning day that I'd finally break the cycle of poverty in my family. Now I kind of just want this semester to be over and graduation kind of just feels like a thing I have to do. I have a semi-tangential job lined up after graduation in case everything breaks badly that should allow me to leave the hospitality industry and tide me over until I can either apply again or get a job that more aligns with what I want to do. At this point I think my ideal scenario is my mentor doesn't retire but I still get rejected so that I can just work as a post-bacc RA in their lab for a year and mentally regroup. I'm still holding out a bit of hope everything works out and I get accepted to either of the last two but oh well if I don't, I'll survive. Felt like I did everything right in the application process: got lots of feedback on a the majority of my material and got an assessment of my standing from grad admissions I've got to get at least one lucky bounce!
Still certifiably bummed, though a little less than when I started this vent.

We understand that making sure you know what to expect from your joint replacement experience is important to you. As you are reading through this material, if you have additional questions please reach out to us to discuss.
Each patient is unique, and can experience joint pain for different reasons. It’s important to talk to us about the reason for your knee pain so you can understand the treatment options available to you. Pain from arthritis and joint degeneration can be constant or come and go, occur with movement or after a period of rest, or be located in one spot or many parts of the body. It is common for patients to try medication and other conservative treatments to treat their knee pain. If you haven’t experienced adequate relief with those treatment options, you may be a candidate for Mako Partial Knee replacement, which may provide you with relief from your knee pain.

How Mako Technology works

Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology provides you with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy. First, a CT scan of the diseased knee joint is taken. This CT scan is uploaded into the Mako System software, where a 3D model of your knee is created. This 3D model is used to pre-plan and assist your surgeon in performing your partial knee replacement.
In the operating room, your surgeon follows your personalized surgical plan while preparing the bone for the implant. The surgeon guides the robotic-arm within the pre-defined area and the Mako System. The surgeon guides the robotic-arm within the pre-defined area and the Mako System helps the surgeon stay within the planned boundaries that were defined when the personalized pre-operative plan was created. This helps to provide more accurate placement and alignment of your implant.

2023.03.29 10:48 XEione97 Is it worth it to go overseas for an Animation degree?

I recently applied to multiple schools offering Animation degrees as I would like to learn the skills and make connections that will allow me to get a job in the 3D film/gaming field. I've applied to Digipen's BFA Digital Art and Animation in Singapore, but I have been offered a placement in Bournemouth University (BU) for their BA(Hons) Computer Animation Art & Design in the UK.
I have compared both their curriculum and though both looks good, I personally prefer BU's as their modules feel more specialised to the subject and they have great accreditations and connections. However, my financial situation means that I would have to take up a student loan to cover half my costs if I were to go to BU as it it pretty expensive. I don't really mind staying in Singapore either since it's less expensive, but I am afraid of loosing out on opportunities if I give this up. I know industry connections are important, but how much is too much to pay for those connections?
I'm really in a dilemma now need some second opinions from people who have studied in these schools/ working in the local industry, thanks!

2023.03.29 10:28 AffectionateAd631 Battery charging strategies

I'm curious what strategies people are using to maximize the life and minimize capacity losses for their batteries. The response I got from Rivian customer service was "ABC, always be charging." Keep charging to 70% as much as possible and minimize time at higher ends of the battery.
My concern is cycle charging. I never got a clear answer whether it's better to charge back to 70% each day to keep near the same SOC or whether it's best to use the battery a reasonable amount, say something like to 30% SOC and then charge back to 70%. My understanding of battery technology is that they will degrade over so many cycles, so my thinking is that I don't want to charge every day to minimize the cycle charging. Is that not a thing if it stays below 70%? Any informed EEs or longtime EV owners out there have any insights?
Much appreciated!

2023.03.29 10:22 ThrowRa-Sammie26 I need some honest opinions..

I've posted on here quite a lot lately, I feel stuck & helpless, I'm at that point where I'm starting to blame myself for all that has happened. I could really use some advice, Good or bad. If it is my fault, I'd love someone to be straight up with me about it, Because right now I don't know what to think.
I do apoligize for the long post, It is going to be a bit of a read, but to understand, You need the backstory on us, We have been together for 8 years & are engaged.
I met my partner when I was 18 at the time, He is 4 years older than me. He imediately became like my best friend. I always wanted to be around him & he felt the same. We did everything together, I honestly thought I had it all. I was so damn happy.
About 8 months later we rented a house together & things were okay, Until they weren't. It seemed as though he really loved attention from other women. I found all these messages on his facebook with him talking to other women, Which I never minded him having girls as friends. He told me they was his "cousins". Until I actually found out, They were his exs. I also had found a website as to where he had been sending nude pictures of his "downstairs" to other women.
Honestly I seen red flags at that stage, But for some silly reason, I still stuck around. I guess I still hoped I'd get the guy I loved back.
A couple years into our relationship, Things were pretty mellow, We still did a lot of stuff together, That was until I had our daughter. It was then I got pushed aside. He used to go out drinking a lot, Come home pissed while driving my car, It got to the point where he came home so pissed one night, Got out of the car screaming that I was cheating on him (Which I never have cheated on him) But, I slapped him. I knew imediately it was wrong, But I did. I was so upset, I was a stay at home mum that hadn't left the house in almost a month. He took off & came back the next day.
He then became more distant. Working really late etc. So I asked him in a nice manner if there was someone else, I had trust issues after seeing stuff on his phone but that to this day is still rubbed into my face that I "accused" him of cheating even though I just asked in a way I thought was appropiate.
He does have a massive issue with anger, Which lead us to a bad patch almost 2 years ago. We almost had split up. He became very stressed from work, & my daughter and I would always be on the recieving end. She was only little at the time & he got pissed off at her for not cleaning her room, He went to her room screaming his lungs out calling us all the names under the sun, putting all her stuff into garbage bags. I told him to fuck off, to get out. He then grabbed me by the throat and slammed me up against the wall, I slapped him in the face, He let go, Smashed my mirror out of my wardrobe and left. It was a real shitty few months of this, It got to the point where I left to stay with a family member with my daughter for a few nights, To then I came home to him sending nudes to other women & asking them if it was too small because he thought that was the problem in our relationship. I almost died when I seen it to be fair. He told me he wasn't in the right headspace, That's all I got
It took months for him to realise the anger he had, & he actually got help, Well sort of.
We then had been okay, Although deep down I couldn't look at him the same after what he did, But we had No arguements of any kind until these last 5 months.
He had been super stressed from work again, So I organsied a date night for us. To which he let me down to go drinking with mates instead. I told him, That I didn't mind him going out, But I felt it was a shitty thing to do as I had stuff organised for us which he knew about. He then proceeded to call me a cunt, Retarded, A selfish bitch, Etc.
This is when everything just came rushing back to me, I remembered all the shitty things he had said & done before. It's like something had clicked in me, Like yes this man meant the world to me, But this ain't love, This ain't normal. I have became very distant in these last months, I can't bring myself to hug him, kiss him or have any kinds of imtimacy with him.
So because of this, He was sending me texts for months that I was cheating on him, How I should go & wash other mens 'cum' off me before he got home, How I had lost my interest in everything with him etc. This went on from the time he would go to work till he got home. Hours straight of non stop texts.
He would go through my phone, Bedsheets, Wardrobe, Pretty much all my belongings to find any kind of evidence that I was apparently cheating on him.
I got accused of cheating also because I carry my phone around with me, Which is just so he don't see my personal messages to my mum as I needed someone to talk to, or this app as he tries to go through my phone every night.
He starts all these comments on how I'm dressed when I go to bed (If I wear trackpants & a tshirt) because it's not sexy. He always would try initiate sex, Like that was the answer to our problems. Or if he picks a fight with me, He expects me to be okay like half hour later.
I fake my period just so I can be left alone & all.
If I'm on my phone, I'm texting apparent boyfriends.
If I do my make up or get dressed up, I'm trying to look good for other people.
I deleted all my social media because he didn't like guys that I was friends with just liking my posts or photos.
It has gotten to a point where I just don't want to be here with him anymore, But it scares me to leave because I don't know what kind of reaction I'll get due to his anger. It's hard to see someone who was my whole world, My best friend, Go to this.
He's just now for the last week, Quiet with me, Barely speaks, & if he does, Its only something shitty that he thinks of me or just about what he does at work.
He told me that this relationship is fucked, Because of me, Because of my distance towards him. I've honestly started to believe that this is my fault & maybe this abuse stuff is just in my head. I'm not myself anymore, I don't take care of myself, I don't do my make up or even try dress nice anymore.

2023.03.29 10:15 HayamiMasaki [Tournament] Oden and Kaido 20 Years Ago: Why Oden is among the top echelon is strength

[Tournament] Oden and Kaido 20 Years Ago: Why Oden is among the top echelon is strength
Good day everyone.
Today I would like to prove that Kaido was already "Yonko level" 20 years ago, or whatever term you would like to use for the top-tier combatants in One Piece. And to also prove that Oden was on that level as well through that. My main aim is to disprove the headcanon that people seem to take as fact these days, which is that the Kaido who fought Oden was much weaker than the one who fought Luffy.
To start this analysis, we would need to start with Kaido, specifically the youngest we have seen him.
We can see that even as a kid, Kaido was already a monster. Note that this was in the Grand Line, a place reputed to be a "Pirate Graveyard" and yet a kid who has barely turned double digits in age was seemingly having no trouble fighting and winning wars.
At 15, despite the Rocks Pirates already having Edward Newgate and Charlotte Linlin, Kaido's reputation was so great that his joining made some people think they were now unstoppable. We can conclude through this that even back then, Kaido was already very strong even by new world standards.

31-Year-Old Kaido, 28 Years Ago
This is a big one. Kaido, 8 full years even before the fight against Oden, was already seen as the "Embodiment of Might" This is not a light title to bestow on someone, the things we know about Kaido such as:
59-Year-Old Kaido
"PEOPLE SAY, "In a one-on-one fight, always bet on Kaido"." "This pirate is SAID to be the strongest creature alive!!!"
All of these statements are based on reputation, you cannot simply take one and not the other as truth. This is the truth, Kaido during the present day was known to be the "Strongest Creature", Kaido 28 years ago was also called the "Embodiment of Might". Both of these hinge on other people's opinions.

39-Year-Old Kaido, 20 Years Ago
Let's continue to talk about Kaido's reputation, specifically the reputation of his strength. This was during the Oden fight. Kaido was already thought of by his subordinates as "Invincible", in fact, the way it was phrased, that was seemingly how he was known already to the outside world.
Now, one might say, "but these are all the opinions of fodder" and that this is simply not enough evidence to prove Kaido's strength 20 years ago. Well then, let us ask Big Mom what she thinks of Kaido.

She seems to think very highly of Kaido's strength. Almost like she's sure of it. But how could that be possible when:
Kaido and Big Mom, Wano Arc
KAIDO AND BIG MOM HAD NOT SEEN EACH OTHER IN DECADES. Came from Big Mom herself. She was very confident in Kaido's strength despite not even seeing him for at least 20 years.
At this point, you might say "Well, she's heard of what he's done over the years and that he's an emperor now. Even if he wasn't that strong when they last saw each other, she would obviously expect he's grown to that level"
Big Mom vs Kid and Law, Wano Arc
KAIDO WAS ALREADY CONSIDERED AS AN EMPEROR WHEN HE FOUGHT ODEN. It isn't just "now", he was already that then as well. Another statement coming from Big Mom herself, she is really helping me out here. This might be the most useful Big Mom has been yet.
Let's continue...

These three panels seem to have happened shortly after Oden's death, we can infer this by looking at Kaido's physique, and how it also seems to be just after the first time Yamato "dropped Joyboy's name". We know Yamato read Oden's logbook as a kid through her flashback.
"I suppose we'll never see him" "Just continue to be the strongest there is"
We can see through these panels that King already saw Kaido as the strongest and that he was unbeatable even back then.
When does an Emperor's crew have qualms fighting another crew? When they're facing another Emperor's crew! Prime Whitebeard had second thoughts about fighting Kaido and his crew, only several years after Oden's death because the consequences would have been too much.
Oden, who had sailed with the greatest pirate crews in history, also valued Kaido's strength very high as you can see in the second panel.
I'm not arguing for Kaido being the strongest 20 years ago, hell I'm not arguing for Kaido having been the strongest when he was alive during Wano. All I'm saying is that Kaido's reputation, even 20 years ago, was unchanged and was already as great as it was in the present time.
There is no proof Kaido got stronger since then, much less MUCH STRONGER. People's main argument usually comes from this:
It only states Kaido is nothing like he was 38 years ago when Kaido was 21. It has no bearing on Kaido's strength when he was 39.
  1. That's how old he was 20 years ago. And yet people act like he couldn't have entered his prime during that time. Even though Shanks currently is 39, Teach is 38, and Mihawk is 43.
Kaido, who I have already shown to have been a monster since he was a kid, and then a monster when he was a teenager, didn't achieve "Top-tier" by 39 according to many, despite all the evidence against it.
That's all for Kaido, and how strong he was 20 years ago.
Now let us discuss the man himself, Kozuki Oden.

We can see through these panels that Oden was a monster, not unlike Kaido and Big Mom, from the day he was born. He went to war against Samurais at the age of 15! Note that this was when Wano was still prosperous and their warriors were still plenty and mighty.
This was Oden before even leaving Wano. "Something dangerous," Whitebeard says, that is not a light statement to be made. He even tells his underlings to stand back after this. And then goes on to meet Oden himself as they clash equally. This was all we see of it, the anime added a bunch of stuff.

Oden gets hit by Roger's named attack, and yet he gets right back up and continues on. He didn't even lose consciousness, coughing out blood is not that big of a deal. Note that after this, he participated in the war against the Roger pirates that went on for 3 days and 3 nights.

The narrator confirms Oden returned to Wano many times stronger than before he left. Even calls him "Invincible".
Now let's go to the Oden vs Kaido fight, and how people always misconstrue it for something it was not.
To start off:
NUMBERS. I know people like to underestimate or downplay its importance, but we have it here coming from Kaido himself. They do matter. A lot.
And yet...

Oden and his retainers were outnumbered. Kaido wasn't even fighting Oden alone. And you also can't argue that he stayed back throughout the war because he is shown in the panel above attacking.
Oden was dealing with Kaido and his men. And yet as the narrator said, the battle lasted longer than expected because Oden's strength surpassed even the enemy's imagination.
Oden vs Kaido: What we see of the 1v1

This is literally all we see of the fight. 2 pages.
"Kaido never used his hybrid form" Let's be real, Oda just didn't want to show Kaido's hybrid in a flashback. Regardless, that can't even be proven true, as we only saw 2 pages of the whole fight, even though it was already established beforehand that the battle had taken a long time.
These are the facts, Oden's attack was so strong that it made a big scar on Kaido, a scar that still wakes him up in the middle of the night. Oden wasn't defeated straight-up, Kaido was never shown to be stronger than him. Oda wouldn't have constructed Oden losing this way if Kaido could have actually beaten him. Oden had to be distracted.
Kaido gets flashbacks of Oden's would-be last attack before he got distracted.
Oden's strength was so great that Kaido can't even imagine there being a samurai of his like again.
As for my last point, let us discuss the infamous panel:
Forget your own interpretations. Let's just look at Kaido's words, "There are only a few capable of fighting me!!!". This statement is not about respect. This statement is about strength. Specifically, Kaido is using the present tense, which means these are the only guys Kaido believes are or were strong enough to fight the current him.
(The fact that Oda never makes a distinction between current Kaido and Kaido from 20 years ago also goes well with my whole argument.)
Another caveat, obviously, is that Kaido is only listing people who he has fought against or at least those he has seen fight. He won't list people he doesn't know the strength of even if they were worthy of being in this group.
"B-but Kaido must've seen Garp during God Valley" We don't know that.
"B-but Big Mom fought him for 3 days and there was no conclusion"
It wasn't an all-out fight.
So to summarize everything:
  • No proof Kaido grew stronger since 20 years ago. Even if he did, that doesn't disregard the fact that he was already "top-tier" 20 years ago.
  • Oden is "top-tier" or "Yonko level" and probably even stronger than Big Mom, at least according to Kaido.
That is all for me, thank you for entertaining my thoughts. Saraba da.

2023.03.29 10:06 Syndrome-of-imposter Help in trying to slow my conscious mind

Hello everyone, in the last 6 months I have been through a lot of trauma. I lost my boyfriend, then my dog got sick and I had to say goodbye and now I have moved in with my brother to take the pressure off with bills. I am keeping healthy, visiting therapy, going to the gym and reading lots of self help books and I am mostly ok. The one hurdle I can't seem to get past is my conscious brain trying to constantly remind me why I should be sad: because I am alone and have lost a lot of what was special to me.
It's like the exercise where you tell someone not to think of an elephant, and it's the first thing they think of. I know it's not my subconscious because I sleep well, I am able to focus at work and day to day I can live my life quite well. But something snaps back to remind me of my problems at least every hour of the waking day. How can I stop it? I'm trying meditation, I've tried letting the thought pass without judgement but it all just feels so difficult.
Thank you in advance for any thoughts and expertise

2023.03.29 10:02 --___--Water--___-- Changes

Posting 2 poems because they 2 of the first poems I ever wrote, Changes first and then It's Yoda, not particularly good but a big moment in my personal self-development. If I have to re-submit I will but I would much rather them both be on the same page.
Changes was written the day Christina Grimmie was shot and killed back in 2016, being part of the growing Youtuber and influencer / online community back in 2016 was a different time and that affected me a lot, to me it was a defining moment in the online community clashing with reality, which up until then were not integrated whatsoever like now, escaping into the fantasy was nice while it lasted. It's Yoda Bitch was just a fun bit of wordplay after discovering the emotional outlet that is poetry.
The first poem I ever wrote is a very personal poem I wrote about a friend being murdered, writing about it was the only way I found to ease the pain, it was actually read at her funeral by a friend and broght tears to the audience, that is what gave me the self-belief to continue writing about almost anything and everything. Maybe I'll post it some day.
The look of fear that emanates from their eyes as they read from the book of devices devised to replace and suck their unnecessary work lives into the ether to be formed Into ultra dense hives which is all good but a little bit too civilised for the old folk who think that "the world is mine" they think they have been here long enough and have eyed that they survived so it's on with the status quo ride they barely know how to order a ride thinking it's magic and it's on their side Ethereum, Uber, Google and Tesla will decide that's why no more do I have a job making cars robots driving and making the kosher pope tsar when did that happen I just married what I bought the kids do what at what age now it's worse than I thought it's all memes and shock culture and the worst thing is ___ worst of all is the fandoms friend pretenders full of gimme even the randoms need to watch it or get shot like Christina Grimmie
It's Yoda Bitch
Nothing do you know about me Plain to see it is says I, The world functions does it not The planes out of the sky are falling, Calling are the extinct The brink they are on, installing, Our trap they have fell into, hee Children, the clean, the trap they do see Against the machine, "rebel!" they plead The stink too great it is, Corruption have the aged inflicted Too great the disease of greed
Sometimes I Accidently Dream of You Bed2

2023.03.29 09:58 xpolpolx Other places for Money Exchange

I randomly found $120 in my luggage the other day and went to one TT currency exchange where they denied to exchange my money because there were some stains on the bills. The bills honestly don't even look to be damaged but it seems they are picky about the bills being cleaned. Are there any recommendations on how I can get this money exchanged? It would be nice to get a few extra thousand baht in my pockets. I have since washed the money by hand and it feels clean, but there a few little spotted stains on some of the bills. Is there anywhere else around here that would take my cash in exchange for Thai baht? Are there any other Americans on there way back home that can exchange with me? I'll buy you some beer or something I just want to get this sorted out. Thanks!

2023.03.29 09:53 hopefullynotanicegrl Cold turkey???

Is going cold turkey the best way to go? I hadn’t even realized until the other day but I’ve been smoking nicotine of one form or another (cigs, iqos, vape, joints, you name it) every single day for pretty much 7-8 years now. I’m 12 days clean of weed but I’m finding myself reaching out to an iqos 3-4 times a day, which isn’t TERRIBLE but I just want to be fucking doneeee man

2023.03.29 09:52 JamesonRhymer 6 Dates to Marry- THIRD DATE: Your date decides. Who would you rather ELIMINATE?

This is part 3 of a week long game we started early in the week.
Part 1:
Part 2:
But to recap, I’m fixing you up on a blind date with 6 people. Each day, you will eliminate the contestant you are least interested in. At the end of the week, we’ll see who democracy has chosen for you.
Yesterday, the sub eliminated Penn.
You called Penn up to break the news, and thankfully they were understanding.
“I’m sorry to hear that, Redditor. I rather enjoyed our chats. You’re a great hang, but I understand. I’ve been single for a while so what’s a little while longer? I’m sure I’ll find the one soon and I hope you do too. Thanks for two great dates- you’re top notch.”
For the third round, your dates are taking you out to someplace that they love and you’ll get to experience a bit of what makes them tick.
Select the person you’d like to eliminate and tomorrow, you will go on a fourth date with the remaining 3 people. You can also revisit the links up top to review the first and second dates if you want to refresh on your previous experience with each of the remaining prospects.


“Hey there’s an open window. That’s perfect, let’s go in!”
Jessen leads you through a busted out window into the cement decay of an abandoned building that looks like it hasn’t been inhabited since the 70’s.
“Are you sure this is okay?” you ask.
“Totally! I do this all the time. I love finding new abandoned buildings to explore and see what I find. It’s like modern archeology. My parents don’t know though, so don’t say anything if you meet them.”
“Sure. How did you get into this?”
“Mmm. That parts kinda weird. But long story short, I used to cut myself a lot when I was really depressed. I’d come to places like this because nobody was here. But don’t worry, that’s all in my past now. These days I just explore and mess around. You can throw a brick at a wall or break a window and who cares. It’s just fun. Wanna try it? Take this rock and throw it at anything.”
You take the rock and half-heartedly throw it at a cinema poster on the wall.
“See. Who cares, right? Wasn’t that fun?” Jessen then walks over and kicks a small filing cabinet over.
“Take that, you stupid filing cabinet!” Jessen says laughing. “I’ve been trying to learn to look at the bright parts of life. But sometimes it feels good to kick over a filing cabinet.”
You guys spend an hour or so there talking about life. You learn that Jessen is a receptionist at a dentist’s office, but doesn’t really like the job, but also doesn’t know what else they’d do. Money is not an issue because they live at home and their parents cover a lot. So for now, Jessen is just killing time in life.


You’ve found yourself at a nice park on the outskirts of town. Sitting on a bench facing a large green area, Brux hands you some fabric and a needle and begins teaching you how to knit.
“It’s a little tricky at first, but you’ll get the hang of it,” Brux assures.
“So you knit here a lot?”
“When I can. It’s super peaceful and I like the fresh air.”
“Don’t take this the wrong way, but I’m surprised you’re into knitting. You don’t seem like one of those fashion-obsessed types.”
Brux smirks lightly. “You calling me a slob?”
“No, no, I-“
“Relax, I know you didn’t mean anything by it. Some things are more about the process than the result.”
“I guess you have a ‘point’ there!” you say, making a mock stabbing gesture toward Brux with your needle. But in a flash, Brux drops everything, grabs your needle hand, bending it behind your back, and shoves your torso toward your knees. After a second, they release their grip and apologize profusely.
“I’m so sorry!! It was a total reflex, I didn’t mean to do that! Please forgive me,” Brux says with a heavy blush as they help you back upright.
“Okay sure…but you need to tell me what’s up. Last time we met, you Houdini’d my wallet out of my pocket without me ever feeling a thing. Today you Bruce Lee’d me into a pretzel in the space of one second. I get that it was a reflex, but not a lot of people have that reflex. What’s the deal here???”
“It’s actually just from work.”
“I’m a stunt double. I work on films and stuff. My specialty is martial arts, so I stand in for a lot of the female macho types.”
“What?? Why am I just hearing this?”
“I don’t like to tell people because then they get all weird and start asking about celebrities and whatever. But I’m not a big red carpet type. It’s just a job for me. My parents put me in martial arts from an early age and I got scouted at a tournament and so I started taking film gigs because…money. But it’s not my identity. Sitting here on a bench with my yarns and good company is more my speed.”


And now for something complete different. After the blast you guys had at Disneyworld, this was a total contrast.
“Alright, we’re here!” Blue says as they park their SUV in a space beside a mountain. “This is the best hike in town!”
Blue then takes a swig of their energy drink and belches loudly as you guys open your car doors to get out. That burp sounded way louder than it needed to.
“Wow, you’re a rugged one, aren’t you?” you comment.
“I guess! I do a lot of camping and hiking and all that.”
Finally! That was the perfect segue to bring up that burning issue that’s been in the back of your mind. Sure, Blue was a sculpture-ready work of art, but that first date…
“Oh, so you do a lot of outdoor stuff? I guess that skill came in handy for that, uh, accident at the picnic the other day. I’m so glad you weren’t sick or anything. I was worried.”
“Accident? I didn’t have an accident. I took a dump. Just like everyone does- and a fat one at that!” they said with a comically exaggerated wink and a click of the tongue.
“But right behind a tree?” you say, trying to force a laugh so things don’t get too awkward.
“Life’s too short to hold onto energy. You see the peak on that mountain? That’s the challenge. You see this apple and granola bar? This is energy. Energy in, energy out, keep moving. Anyway, I grew up in a house with a dad and three brothers. We were always outdoors. But I’m kinda the high-fiber, water guzzling health nut in the family. My dad always jokes that my dog should carry a plastic baggie for me when we go out! But anyway, I’m human. I poop. Who cares. Now let’s get going- I’m about to take you on the best hike of your life and I can’t wait to see the smile on your face!”
Blue lets out a roar as they grab your hand and drag you toward the trailhead.
One thing about Blue you noticed is that they are always overflowing with energy. But they were a great hiking guide and knew all about the types of animals and plants you encountered. Blue shared lots of survivalist info and you could tell they were a master of the outdoors. You knew from previous conversations that they were a department store model and cashier at Abercrombie & Fitch, but you learned today that they’re in training to become a wilderness survival guide specializing in beginners who, as Blue described, “have never experienced the pure awesomeness of nature”.


You didn’t even need a car. Naeve had you meet them in a rougher part of town and you set out down the street on foot. Soon, you understand why Naeve told you to dress down a bit. Naeve as usual is wearing thrifted indie clothing, so no change was necessary for them.
“I want you to meet some of my buds around here.” they say as they led you to a tent up the way.
“This is Jim. He’s the funniest guy you’ll ever meet.”
Jim is a homeless guy with a friendly smile. He’s been homeless since the Pandemic and Naeve occasionally brings him food when possible. Over the next couple hours, you accompany Naeve, meeting the homeless of all walks of life. You learn that Naeve was homeless for a few months, but they didn’t even seem to mind it that much. Now they live in a rent-controlled apartment near the homeless encampment but still stays in touch with the others and does everything possible to encourage local restaurants and grocery stores to donate food that’s about to go to waste. Naeve also participates in local activism to help reduce homelessness in the city and pass socially focused legislation.
“See, that’s what I call a perfect exchange,” Naeve said. “We had a great time, met some cool cats, and it didn’t cost us a dime. People today waste too much money. The world is already free entertainment!”
One thing you notice about Naeve is that they don’t need good looks to feel confident. They may be on the lower end of average, but they have a knack for relating to anyone and matching their energy. They kept you included in all the conversations and by the end, you felt really knowledgeable about a portion of society you didn’t know anything about.
Who do you want to eliminate?
If you hit the bell, I'll let you know tomorrow when Date 4 happens with the remaining 3 people ;-)

2023.03.29 09:41 TranquilityTea People that still keep their coins on exchanges, why?

With all the horror stories we have seen in the recent and not so recent times of exchanges going down and taking users' money with them there are still many people that continue to keep their coins in the hands of institutions that obviously can't always really be trusted.
If you belong to a group of people like that what are your reasons for doing so? Is it that you have never tried to move your coins anywhere else? Do you feel more comfortable having all the crypto in one place? Do you perhaps have a bad experience with cold storage?

I don't actually know how many reactionaries who are fine with interracial marriages but I think there needs to be a new ethno-christian movement but that'll be hard to form with other reactionaries if they see my marriage as progressive or something
Also I'm sure many of you don't care about race. This post is to find out where I can meet others who feel that way (the Integralists of Brazil are somewhat what I am thinking perhaps)

2023.03.29 09:30 Blossomfile INTP partner not communicating

My bf is an intp and also has avoidant attachment. He's really caring and kind deep down but he has problems withdrawing when we get too close.
One problem with his poor communication is he can't forward plan (an avoidant thing or an intp thing or both?) I told him I wanted to go to an event, he knew I had some things on this week but called me on his way to the event telling me to meet him. He didn't bother to forward plan, check when I was free, and he ended up going to the event without me because I was unable to go that day. He couldn't see why I was annoyed he had left it till the last minute (literally he was on his way) to check the day, and he didn't bother to change it after he knew. This happens frequently. He'll call me like 'im at the beach 5 hours away, get the train and meet me right now' as if I can drop everything.
Anyway he's always about space space alone time blah blah. So I've been giving him that. But now it's at the point where we speak maybe twice a week. Now I'm an introvert so I can cope with this. I used to chase him and complain at him for his lack of contact but now I just stopped. Since I stopped, and I also stopped reaching out, communication is at an all time low. I don't know if he is actually happy with things being like this because it's more comfortable or if he somewhat preferred it when I chased him a bit. I've pulled back completely at this point.
Maybe this is to do with him being avoidant not an INTP but I know INTPs also like space. Is it wrong of me to completely just give up on contacting him and letting him come to me? When I would get annoyed at his lack of messages he would withdraw more but it seems if I don't get annoyed then the communication just stops. Not sure how to proceed?
