2023.05.29 17:43 Falling_awayy I am resenting you now

Why did you move over cities to be near me? Why if you knew you couldn't project yourself long-term with anything? Why did you let me believe in a future together?
Why if you knew you'd repeat same old patterns you didn't like, you didn't do anything to change it? Why didn't you tell me you knew that you'd walk away when things got hard?
Why did you tell me you believed you could be in love with the same person your whole life, if you knew you were not willing to work on yourself?
Why did you promise to tell me how you felt, if something bothered you or upset you, but didn't do it? Why did you promise and didn't tell me how hard it was for you??
Why did you let me believe in your love and then walked away? Why did you let me believe in your love if you knew you'd give up anyway?
And then you told me "at least I tried it, that's what I tell myself". Being in a relationship isn't trying. Working on yourself and the relationship, that is trying. I still love you, I still miss you. Thanks for loving me your way, thanks for caring and being affectionate, thanks for all your patience and loving words, you were amazing at showing me your love. I hope one day you can heal yourself, so you are able to love and receive the love you deserve.
Thanks for our last meeting. I really enjoyed spending the day with you, talking, crying and hugging, thanks for showing you still care about me. In another time, we would've been amazing together.
Sincerely P

2023.05.29 17:42 iiinoooontario Job has morphed into a completely different job but title and description does not reflect this. What should I put on my cv/resume?

I work in the public sector, super hard to get any changes done related to my job description that has not been updated since I came on board nearing 6 years ago and my boss who’s the CFO has not brought it to HR or COO when we first talked about it 2 years ago. My job title is (department) administrator but I am working alongside HR now for workforce analytics and pension analytics duties along with managing projects, grants, and reporting various compliance requirements. I literally started out as an administrative assistant and am doing a lot more stuff than that now. They don’t want to have to put me in another bracket that’s outside that grid/step because it would be a “new” position and they would have to hire an admin assistant bc it’s already forecasted in the budget , and build a new business case for my current position so I’m looking for a new job.
Tailoring my resume left and right is the worst because the title is not reflective of what I actually do. I have a few set of duties and responsibilities that are all over the map so I literally have 4 resumes specific to the 4 major responsibilities I have in my role.
Can anyone please shed some light if I should change my job title on my resume/LinkedIn

2023.05.29 17:42 pagalvin Potential for gaming / simulation with ChatGPT

The first game I ever played as Adventure back on a dumb terminal using CANDE connected to some kind of Burroughs computer. Zork took that to whole new level and I've always been fond of text games like that.
I played around with ChatGPT today to see what it can do here and it's pretty good. Here's a single prompt and the result. I think we can wrap this inside a game loop, add some memory via LangChain or similar and you could build some really cool stuff that could be really interesting and fun to play.
Youl could do the same thing for traing perhaps, like repairing an engine. I can think of a bunch of uses.
Here's the prompt:
``` You are a game master These are the rules you must enforce --start rules-- Don't let the player do something an ordinary human could not do --end rules--
The player controls an avatar working in a virtual physical place and may travel from one location to another
Evaluate player moves and track the following: - Their possessions - How long it takes to make a move - Whether it's physically possible to do (don’t allow impossible moves)
Maintain some state information: - What physical items does the player possess? - The player's location - The player's injuries - discovery facts about each room, especially facts that you make up in response to player action
--Location 1-- Living room in a house It has numerous paintings, clocks, a couch, a television, a television controller It has one exit to the kitchen to the north This is where the player begins the game. --End Location 1--
--Location 2-- Kitchen It has ordinary kitchen items It has one exit to the living room to the south --End Location 2--
--End Locations--
Player move: Please describe my current location. Describe some of the paintings. How many clocks are there? Turn on the t.v. to channel 5. Crush the t.v. down to the size of golf ball.
Show me the current game state in markdown format.
go north and describe what I see.
show me the current state of the game in markdown format ```
Here's the response:
``` Your current location is the living room in a house. There are several paintings on the walls, depicting landscapes, people, and abstract themes. There are three clocks in the room, two on the walls and one on a table. In the center, there is a couch facing a television that has a remote control on the armrest. There is one exit to the kitchen in the north.
Some of the paintings include a beautiful mountain landscape, a portrait of a distinguished-looking gentleman, and a colorful abstract piece with energetic brush strokes.
There are a total of three clocks in the room.
I will turn on the TV to channel 5. However, I cannot let you crush the TV down to the size of a golf ball, as that is not physically possible for an ordinary human.
Current Game State:
You walk north through the exit and enter the kitchen.
You see a typical kitchen with countertops, a stove, an oven, and various kitchen utensils. There is a refrigerator with a few magnets on it, and several cabinets containing plates, glasses, and other kitchen items. There is one exit to the living room to the south.
Current Game State:
  • Location: Kitchen
  • Possessions: None
  • Injuries: None
  • TV Channel: Channel 5 (Living room) ```

2023.05.29 17:41 eroverton Noisy cat is driving me nuts

Hi, I'm not sure what to do about this cat. He's a sweet boy that I've had about a year and a half - so he's about 2 years old now. Problem is, he will not let me move without beginning to meow incessantly. ESPECIALLY if I go anywhere near the kitchen.
He's a healthy boy, neutered, vaxd, playful, affectionate, obsessed with birds. But I work from home so I'm here most of the day in my "office" spot at the table. Anytime I stand up to go anywhere, he starts meowing and runs ahead of me to wherever he thinks I'm headed. Okay, fine.
But the kitchen. From the moment it's evident that I'm going into the kitchen he meows and meows and meows and yowls and carries on like mad. He has food. I have dry kibble which he likes available all day, and I feed wet in the evening. Before, he would only act like this when I was preparing his can food in the evening time, which was annoying enough but I likened it to an infant screaming for a bottle even though he can see that it's coming.
But now he will not let me be in the kitchen at all without the incessant meowing and yowling. He's perfectly fine the rest of the time. He's not hungry, he has food there. He gets treats sometimes. He has water. But now it's his habit to yell the whole time I'm in the kitchen no matter what I'm doing or how long I'm there, and it's frankly making me want to yeet him out of the house just to get some quiet and it's driving my family crazy too. Does anyone have any advice on how to get him to shut the hell up and let me live?

Post# 593185 of 593185 I am definitely not a biotech expert and what I've learned about Northwest and DCVax-l was shared with me by one of the legends in the biotech world !!! My biggest takeaway is this:
From 2018 forward, it became apparent that DCVax-L was a breakthrough, technological process for the treatment of nGBM and rGBM, but its true potential was only known by a "handful" of experts, and as such, the understanding of the broader market implications was a relative unknown. Early on, several of the comments that I heard from BP were," The GBM market is really not that big!" and " Personalized, Immunotherapy vaccines are not really in our 'Wheelhouse'. We sell compounds/pills!!" On and on! The comments didn't mean that BP wasn't paying attention! Quite the contrary, BP was watching like a hawk as results from Dr. Liau and the UCLA trials began to leak into the medical community suggesting a broader application of DCVax-L on a "stand alone" basis and in combination with CI's for all large tumor cancers ( mentioned in the latest 10Q for future trials), thus dramatically expanding market potentials!!! But the "Big Moment" occurred in late October of last year when the STADIUM LIGHTS turned on, shining bright lights on the latest nGBM/rGBM ,Dr. Liau trial data suggesting 50%to 65% OS for 8 years with emphasis on rGBM !!! That was the point in time when BP and the entire biotech world realized that GBM/rGBM would be treated and managed as a CHRONIC DISEASE!!! with unlimited PROMISE and HOPE for patients and unlimited marketing potential to finance existing vaccine production and the continuing development for improved treatments for all diseases!!!!!
So that's what I learned and that's my story and I'm stickin to it!!!!
Cheers especially to all the Mom's and to everyone !!!

The light switch just turned on for me !!! I'm not a doctor or scientist or a STEM concentration "rock star", but if I read something over and over again several times and look carefully at the pictures SOMETIMES, NOT ALL THE TIME, a major mental breakthrough occurs and I believe that I've discovered something very profound!!
In this case, I believe the main message from the slide deck is that DCVax-L, either by itself or in combination with CI's has turned the whole thing around for treating nGBM/rGBM from having to kill the tumor to a "management process" !! It looks like now with this new information, that GBM patients can receive vaccinations as needed with "Zero" side effects and live a long and happy life !!! A comment from a medical expert that DOES KNOW !!!:
Dr. Greg Zivic:
This treatment can turn a Glioblastoma into a chronic treatable disease even after recurrence of the tumor.
So help me out here. Does the above reasoning seem logical based on the slides all of us have just reviewed?? If it does or is, then little Team Northwest has just changed the healthcare landscape forever in the way that we treat disease!!!!!
Am I way off base or are all of onto to something that is fabulous beyond belief???
Bright Boy Re: thermopost# 591947 Tuesday, May 09, 2023 8:41:30 PM Post# of 596749 Go The UK is determined to be the world carrousel for use of immunotherapy vaccines to treat cancers and all forms of disease!!! From my friends in the UK, my use of the word "determined" grossly understates the effort behind the "Grand Plan"!!
So far, the MHRA has not only accepted and approved the MIA application (manufacturing license), but voluntarily offered the expansion to a GLOBAL MANUFACTURING" license allowing for the import of live cells and the export of vaccines to the far corners of the earth!!! People!!! That is huge!!!!! BUT as always 99.99% of the retail investors don't understand the significance of that license or anything else about the process and look to the screen to validate the importance/value of the license, where they are greeted by Citadel and Virtu and the rest of the gang that manipulate the price to new lows, confirming that, in spite of everything they just read from the greatest medical minds in the universe, is a bunch of crap!!!!
Fortunately for the cancer patients and shareholders of Northwest, the MHRA does not include in their decision making process the current SP of NWBO or the opinion of the "gutter filth" that manage those companies or any other companies that participate in the ordered destruction of small biotechs that are engaged in the development of immunotherapy vaccines!! So, it's on to the filing of the MAA (marketing license), the approval and the decisions that will guarantee swift treatment deliveries to patients!!
So Griffin and Cifu and Fuerstein and the rest can lie all they want , but the GREAT UNITED KINGDOM will not be denied the ultimate crown of being the WORLD CENTER for CANCER TREATMENT !!!!!
Bright Boy Re: hoffmann6383post# 578889 Tuesday, March 21, 2023 1:55:12 PM Post# of 596749 Go People, People, People!!! It's your friendly "hillbilly" here with some more great news!! Don't know if I can "one up" my earlier post about the "Dog eating the license", but I'll try. So here we go!!
I don't think everyone realizes how dynamic and important the manufacturing license really is so I'll take a shot at giving you my take on it. First of all, the marketing approval (MAA) and the government subsidy approval(NICE) are pretty much in the bag before the manufacturing team gets the "green light" to proceed. The MAA and NICE teams talk to the MIA team and say," This stuff looks really cool and we wanted to let you know before you run off and do a lot of work on something that we won't approve when you're finished!!" Okay! So that's the first part.
Now for the second part and this is the part that involves a lot of money so read very carefully!!! The MIA license allows for global export of the vaccines and global import of immune cells/tumor resected material. Anyone in the entire world that is diagnosed with GBM can NOW ship their tumor samples to Northwest/Advent/Sawston to have their personal vaccine made and stored, all to be shipped back to the patient/doctor on a prescribed injection schedule. The beauty of this process is that patients everywhere can NOW receive their vaccine on a compassionate care basis. No more waiting!! No more opportunities for the "dark forces" to delay or deny suffering cancer patients their desperately needed treatments !!!
People, as of yesterday, Northwest is now IN BUSINESS !!!! AND that opens the door for institutional investors and an uplist to the New York or Nasdaq exchanges!!!!
All of the above is as good as that first sip of ice cold buttermilk on a hot summer day!!!! AND for those unfortunate shorts and haters it adds a whole new description to the letters FTD and I'll let you guess what that might be!!!
Bright Boy Re: None Tuesday, March 21, 2023 9:05:54 PM Post# of 596749 Go The MIA allows for "International Immune Cell Imports" and "International Vaccine Exports" !!! That is big news and a big, big market and should access every cancer patient in need!!!!

Abstract Objective: To define the landscape of treatment patterns and current epidemiological data regarding gliomas in Pakistan.
Methods: As part of the Pakistan Brain Tumour Epidemiology Study (PBTES), data were collected from 32 neurosurgical centres across the country. Our retrospective study looked at patients who underwent surgical procedures for gliomas in 2019 in neurosurgical centres. The data was collated and analysed using STATA version 15.
Results: A total of 781 patients with gliomas were identified 479(61.8%) in public sector hospitals, 302(39.1%) in the private sector). The most common histopathological subtypes were glioblastoma 262 (33.5%), followed by astrocytoma 147(18.8%) and oligodendroglioma 93(11.9%). Gender distribution was skewed towards men 508(65%). Private institution hospitals performed surgical biopsies as the first surgical procedure 75(23%) more often than public hospitals 38(9%). Chemotherapy was given to 115(29.8%) patients, and there was no data regarding 467(53%) of patients. Similarly, only 202(43.9%) patients received radiation therapy, and there was no data for 469(60%) of patients. For high-grade gliomas specifically, only 95(31.8%) patients with HGG have a record of receiving radiation therapy, and only 57(18.9%) had a record of being started on chemotherapy.
DCvax: A promising advancement in oncology for the treatment of glioblastoma Areeba Fareed [email protected], Samia Rohail, […], and Abdul Moiz Khan all authors and affiliations All Articles
Contents Declaration of conflicting interests Funding ORCID iDs Footnotes References PDF / ePub More Dear Editor, Glioblastoma is a malignant neoplasm of the central nervous system that arises from glial cells, primarily astrocyctes and is characterized by poorly differentiated, fusiform, round or pleomorphic astrocyctic cells with marked nuclear atypical and brisk mitotic activity.1 Despite advances in early diagnosis and comprehensive treatments, there is nearly 100% recurrence rate and dismal patient survival.2 According to researchers, more than 13,000 Americans are diagnosed with Glioblastoma annually, causing significant morbidity and mortality. There has been no cure for Glioblastoma so far.3 Treatment options often include surgical removal of the tumor followed by concomitant radiation and adjuvant temozolomide TMZ chemotherapy which has been the standard of care for glioblastoma since decades, but exposure to high doses of ionizing radiation is a well-known exogenous risk factor for glioblastoma. The inability to cross the BBB is the major obstacle in achieving remission after surgical resection followed by chemotherapy and radiation.4 As a result, glioblastoma typically recurs within six to 8 months and the survival rate is generally less than 5%.2 Despite the development of novel, complex, multidisciplinary, and targeted therapies the outcome for patients remains almost universally lethal.5 Therefore, the need for effective treatment is undeniable. For this reason, it has been a priority area in cancer research. Recently, US biotech company Northwest Biotherapeutics has developed a brain cancer vaccine, called DCVax, which is designed to help patients' immune system to target their tumors that may prolong their life by months or, in some cases, years.5 Thus, opening a door for the development of innovative therapy for targeting glioblastoma. The vaccine is created for each patient individually by isolating dendritic cells, from their blood which is then primed with biomarkers from a sample of the patient’s tumor.6 Dendritic cells present tumor antigens to the immune system, prime T cells, and mobilize antitumor responses.6 To evaluate the safety of the vaccine and its impact on survival time in patients with Glioblastoma, a phase 3 randomized control trial was conducted.7 In this trial, 348 patients newly diagnosed with Glioblastoma were tested at King’s College Hospital and other centers around the world for 8 years.7 Patients had surgery to remove their tumors as much as possible, followed by radiation and chemotherapy as the standard treatment for Glioblastoma.7 Among these patients, two out of three were treated with the vaccine, DCVax-L, with the remaining one-third receiving a placebo.7 The astonishing result of the trial has shown that newly diagnosed patients who received the vaccine survived for 19.3 months compared to 16.5 months for those who received a placebo.8 Overall 13% of all trial participants treated with DCVax lived more than 5 years after diagnosis compared with 5.7% in the comparison group who did so.8 Moreover, this is the first time in 17 years that such a significant result has been achieved in a Phase 3 trial of a systemic treatment for newly diagnosed Glioblastoma, and it’s the first treatment in 27 years for patients with GBM recurrence.9 Thus, this development represents a major step forward in our efforts to combat this devastating disease. Based on the findings of the trials evaluating the drug’s efficacy, it has the potential to improve the quality of life for patients, especially for the elderly and those unable to have surgery. A global clinical trial has concluded that the DCVax is the world’s first vaccine to treat deadly cancerous brain tumors that could help patients to live for years.9 This breakthrough could benefit 2500 people a year in the UK being diagnosed with Glioblastoma.9 It has also been shown that this therapy can be used to treat cancers other than Glioblastoma.9 However, due to high recurrence rate and lethal outcomes, the treatment of gliblastoma has seen significant transformation, switching from an aggressive surgical strategy to a more cautious one. The endorsement of the vaccine is a commendable achievement, and it demonstrates the unwavering commitment of researchers and healthcare professionals to discovering effective treatments for such lethal disease. Furthermore, vaccine may enhance the quality of life of a patient and provides a new hope for patients and their families Thus, it is crucial that we continue to support research into Glioblastoma and the development of novel treatments so that we can envision a future where this disease is eradicated.

2023.05.29 17:39 Kaptain-Konata 33 [M4F] Florida - nice guy seeking potential LTR

Hello there
I’m looking to meet a nice, sweet, caring girl looking for a long term monogamous relationship.
If you feel like you have flaws or problems, don’t worry I’m not perfect either. I work a lot, I’m bad at texting back, I’m antisocial unless around people I know and trust. Not a fan of crowded places. I rather be on a lake with nothing but my music, a fishing pole, and a cooler of beer then a concert or theme park. I don’t mind age gaps if that is a concern.
A bit about me: I’m 33, white, dad body. Nice, caring, loyal guy, I have an affectionate and dominant nature. Dark sense of humor, I don’t get offended easily so no worries.
I have a career, my own life, my own house, no drama, currently single, never married, no kids. Outside of this I’m into fishing/boating, motorcycle riding, anime (I’m a fkn weeb), video games. Music I like metal, rock, country and Spanish.
Im near the Ocala area of Florida if it helps picture it on a map. If you’re interested let’s chat.

I am currently on lease until the end of July for which I pay ~1.2k including everything. I plan to either move to North Jersey (near NYC) or DC/VA area in August. I know the rents would be around 2-2.5k for a studio / 1bedroom apts. I could move in the basement of my parents in North Jersey and contribute maybe 1k to them (they don't expect anything from me), but I don't know if it makes sense to do that given that I make six figures already.
I own a 2012 prius,which works fine and has no issues. I have saved up roughly 20k.
What should I focus on at this point? I know I can make more money (250k+/year) if I transfer to a big tech company in a year or so (I accepted to work at current company because it is remote).
Should I focus on saving/investing or should I spend more on myself (travel, new car)? I guess the ideal is to find the delicate balance between the two.

2023.05.29 17:39 chadbarrett So I finally got around to reading the 14 Features of Fascism and couldn't help but laugh. It seems applicable to pretty much every group in every country, from politics to identity.

I saw the typical riff raff back and forth with someone trying to calm another down, that Republicans are NOT literally Nazi fascists trying to blah blah blah, you know the drill. With the other side insisting that they check off nearly every box! Then linked some overly exhausting article on it, as "proof".
Knowing how the internet is, I decided to look up these 14 features myself, and as expected, if you don't like a group, it's pretty damn easy to pigeon-hole any opponent into this ideology. Forward: I'm actually a liberal progressive, just a bit anti "terminally online woke weirdos", and also understand the intention of the author was these features are meant to be extreme reflections. However, I'm highlighting how it's used casually to frame your opponent into that category for political convenience.
So let's see how the average young woke liberal Redditor checks off these boxes? Surely, the most anti-fascist group out there wouldn't be... Fascist.
1. The cult of tradition. “One has only to look at the syllabus of every fascist movement to find the major traditionalist thinkers. The Nazi gnosis was nourished by traditionalist, syncretistic, occult elements.”
This one is the most silly... Because "Traditionalist thinkers" encompasses literally every ideology, from religion, to political, there will always be dead thinkers who are admired and revered thought leaders. Now while there may not be any direct occult traditions, even though many are knee deep in their horoscope, there are definitely ingroup signalling. Let's do a pronoun roundtable before the group and introduce ourselves. I'll admit though, this isn't as strong, as say, the Nazis who were propper occult based.
2. The rejection of modernism. “The Enlightenment, the Age of Reason, is seen as the beginning of modern depravity. In this sense Ur-Fascism can be defined as irrationalism.”
This one doesn't apply. I could bend a bit and find some ways, but it would overall make the argument weak. If anything, they are the ones encouraging depravity like sex work is real work type stuff, so I wont push on this one. But fascists don't need to check off ALL 14.
3. The cult of action for action’s sake. “Action being beautiful in itself, it must be taken before, or without, any previous reflection. Thinking is a form of emasculation.”
Every year, every damn year... Me and my fellow progressives are attacked because we need to "Vote Blue, no matter who!" or "If you don't vote Democrat, you aint black, Jack!"
4. Disagreement is treason. “The critical spirit makes distinctions, and to distinguish is a sign of modernism. In modern culture the scientific community praises disagreement as a way to improve knowledge.”
This is probably their biggest one. This absolutely fits the most extreme cases in all ways. Culturally, they've absolutely made it so any one who dissagrees with them on any nuanced issue from COVID to Clinton being a queen, will label you a heretic. People like fucking Jimmy Dore and Russell Brand are now considered "right wingers". Ever see someone have a nuanced take on the trans issue? You don't so much any more, because it gets you banned across reddit. But people used to.
5. Fear of difference. “The first appeal of a fascist or prematurely fascist movement is an appeal against the intruders. Thus Ur-Fascism is racist by definition.”
This is highlighted by the liberal elitism growing disdain for the working class. The snobbery and aversion from poor and working class types make them uncomfortable, and viewed as inherently racist, sexist, transphobic, and problematic. These "evil white trash Republicans" are viewed as a threat to our country and actively coordinating to spread lies and propaganda over Minecraft to convert our children to becoming... ALT RIGHT
6. Appeal to social frustration. “One of the most typical features of the historical fascism was the appeal to a frustrated middle class, a class suffering from an economic crisis or feelings of political humiliation, and frightened by the pressure of lower social groups.”
Again, ties right in with the above. It's those damn, uneducated, white trash, rural folx voting against their interests. They view them not as struggling poor in a dysfunctional economic system, but rather, uneducated poor who are too dumb to think for themselves, who ultimately drag down the country.
7. The obsession with a plot. “Thus at the root of the Ur-Fascist psychology there is the obsession with a plot, possibly an international one. The followers must feel besieged.”
This obsession of this idea that there is a sophisticated Russian/GOP psyop all across the internet trying to spread misinformation. That any time people say something you dissagree with, it's either a victim of this nefarious plot against people, or coordinated active agents themselves spotted in the wild, trying to recruit Twitter and Reddit users.
8. The enemy is both strong and weak. “By a continuous shifting of rhetorical focus, the enemies are at the same time too strong and too weak.”
This is my favorite. Trump was both an absolute incompetent moron, who couldn't even string a thought together, but also a sophisticated and calculated mad man who was about to overthrow the entire government. Russia as well, can barely launch an invasion against a small country as their entire infrastructure scrambles and crumbles to their poor leadership, but also sophisticated enough to shift the entire global zeitgeist including changing the outcome of an American election.
9. Pacifism is trafficking with the enemy. “For Ur-Fascism there is no struggle for life but, rather, life is lived for struggle.”
Also SUPER common. Guilty by association. You aren't even allowed to TALK to the other side. It's either "giving them a platform" or "empowering their thoughts by paying attention to it." Very very cultish and insular here. It's seen as heretical to simply be friendly to the other side. So much so, many of these people have cut off family ties over it.
10. Contempt for the weak. “Elitism is a typical aspect of any reactionary ideology.”
I want to give them a pass on this, because I saw what antifa looks like in real life, and it's a bunch of sissies. As most of these "woke leftists". However, they do still see people on the right as weak, intellectually. And they hate them for it. If anything, the left is worse than the right with how much arrogance they hold at the higher ranks. And we have data to prove it.
11. Everybody is educated to become a hero. “In Ur-Fascist ideology, heroism is the norm. This cult of heroism is strictly linked with the cult of death.”
Just look around Reddit and the rest of social media. Online activists literally dedicate their lives to "fighting the secret underground cabal of GOP agents spreading misinformation". Literally, Reddit is ran by about 5 full time power mods who are all activists, who also recruit activists. They all think they are a hero in their own plot.
12. Machismo and weaponry. “Machismo implies both disdain for women and intolerance and condemnation of nonstandard sexual habits, from chastity to homosexuality.”
I'd initially say they don't fit this... But they do fit the spirit of it. They are just on the inverse. Machismo and masculinity in general are deemed evil. Instead, they lead with loosely defined virtuism that guides them. It's all the same shit though. 4Chan types may want to troll and set up a raid and ruin someone's life for some stupid racist reason... But at the end of the day, they are doing it for fun/meaning and to feel powerful over a group of people. The terminally online left is no different... But instead of using machismoism, they use virtue to justify their bully tactics to have fun/meaning and feel a sense of power over others. They just have to find a way to label the person a heretic, then it's morally justified hunting season, where it's morally encouraged to ruin someone's life.
13. Selective populism. “There is in our future a TV or Internet populism, in which the emotional response of a selected group of citizens can be presented and accepted as the Voice of the People.”
When it's Trump trying to redefine the norms and institutions, suddenly the state is sacred and instutions must be preserved. When it's Bernie (My man), suddenly it's "Well yeah, the government is shit and we need to start it all over from scratch! Bernie is a shill now. We need someone even more radical! Capitilism itself has to go entirely through revolution!"
14. Ur-Fascism speaks Newspeak. “All the Nazi or Fascist schoolbooks made use of an impoverished vocabulary, and an elementary syntax, in order to limit the instruments for complex and critical reasoning.”
I think this one goes without saying. This is their second hardest one on the list that fits the author's intended extremist definition. They are almost defined by their newspeak. The obsession with definitions, the treadmill constantly going to signal how committed they are to "the cause", is all so cultish.
Anyways, my point is. You can probably do this with any other group. I don't think my defining of the left here, is any more or less dishonest than if you were to do it with the right.

2023.05.29 17:39 DryBreakfast555 Is it okay to leave?

I know this is a reconciliation sub, so maybe mods will delete this. I just don't want to post this somewhere else because I don't want to just get flooded with "he's a lying, cheating jerk. Leave him." I want to actually hear from people who want to stay.
We've been trying to reconcile. DDay was a couple of months ago. But the longer this goes on, I'm just in more and more pain all of the time. He's doing basically everything right. I do love him. I don't want to hurt him. I would rather be strong though to stay. The kids won't forgive me for leaving until they're adults, if they forgive me at all. I didn't forgive my mom for a long time for leaving my dad.
But this is months now of almost constant pain for me. There's good moments, sure, but they aren't thaaat good. Not with him. And I'm exhausted. Will the pain and exhaustion slow down if I leave? If this is as much pain as he was in before the affairs started, I guess it's no wonder he ended up looking for some type of escape.
He said his behavior was his own fault, all his own problem, and that he should have talked to me before going outside of the marriage. But he also said that he already felt our relationship was dead and decayed for a long time. This was news to me. Obviously, we had problems. I knew that, but I wouldn't have described us as anywhere near a dead relationship. So, if the relationship was dead before the affairs, and I feel dead now, what are we fighting for? Are we just not really good for each other? Maybe I just can't make him happy, and if he needs to go outside the marriage, he's making me miserable.
I feel like I'm looking for permission from someone who knows reconciliation is possible for me to leave. But I also feel like I'm looking for someone to tell me that I'm walking through hell, and I will eventually come out the other side. That it's worth it to have months and months of pain. That it'll be worth it to experience pain with the person I love for the rest of my life.
Mostly, I'm just so confused. I'm in a lot of pain. He's been in a lot of pain for years, it seems. Maybe that's a sign that this wasn't the relationship of our lives after all, and we should take that seriously.

2023.05.29 17:39 Far-Requirement-3285 Dating slow? Is it normal?

I’ve(26m) have recently been seeing a great girl (25f) but I’m not sure if we’re moving at a slow pace or just not at all.
For context, my last relationship was 0-100. We met and kissed the same night and ending up full out dating and her basically living with me after two weeks. Definitely was rushed as the relationship ended about 6 months in due to multiple factors and ultimately just not being happy.
Which brings me this new girl via sliding into her dms. We met and went out till 7 am the first night. But no kissing or any of that. Just flirting n such. We ended up hanging out again a few days later. My schedule got busy and I didn’t see her for three weeks (job change, busy with other hobbies, out of state wedding, just busy in general). But we still texted nearly every day.
We started to go out more often and now we have one day a week that we dedicate to going bouldering and out for drinks after (this is one of our favorite activities and it’s nice to have a common hobby). I always walk her home whether it’s a night out with friends or a one on one just me and her.
We text almost everyday, we flirt, we make plans and after the 4th date we have been more touchy with each other. She’s met my friends and vice versa. Still haven’t kissed though…
We have started to see each other at least twice a week now. I’ve known her for about 6/7 weeks
She has stated to me that she’s only ever been in one relationship in her life, and from her stories and context it seems that it was while she was in college. So I understand that she likely just takes things slow.
So my question is, do I continue to keep it at this pace? Or do I switch something up? I obviously know I need to sit down and talk with her about what she wants from this and see if our goals align.
TLDR: have gone on multiple dates with this girl. It feels like we are progressing but not at a rate I am used to. Do I keep pursing or nah?

2023.05.29 17:38 TeachGrouchy895 I quit drinking, husband has not..

On May 15,2023 I woke up feeling like shit because I was hungover for the 4th day in a row.. I was sick of this constant feeling day after day. I grew up around alcohol. I have been drinking a little less ,sometimes a little more than a pint of rum everyday for the past 4 years. I thought about quitting drink every single day. I couldn't go to rehab because I have 3 kids and a full time job. I woke up not remembering and with injuries that i couldnt recall. My kids would tell me about conversations that i dont remember...Why am i giving my kids the most shittiest version of myself?! How selfish. Day after day i felt like i dont deserve my kids..constant guilt. Whatva miserable life. May 15th I just decided I was not going to let that rum touch my lips or enter my body. Anyways, today is my day 13. My husband and I have been married 5 years. He's the step dad of my kids. He is also an alcoholic. He has known that i wanted to quit drinking and has told me he Is not going to quit. I wasn't expecting him to quit but I was hoping for some support by not taking shots in front of me and not getting shit faced In front of me. But indeed he does every night... he talks bad things about me to my face, goes on drinking rants about me and be Littles me. At that point I get away from him. I don't sleep with him or want to be near him. He knows how bad it hurts. I'm starting to resent honestly disgusts me how he gets. Alcohol has caused that wedge. I don't know quite how to move so early in my own recovery and don't want to expect too much. Anyone ever gone through this?

2023.05.29 17:37 sodavid90 Just a little rant…

So, for a little context, this happened last September…I’m good friends with a girl and she always respected and liked my Tarot readings (I work full-time with Tarot mainly on instagram, and sometimes I’ve some readings at Etsy and Fiverr…but insta is where my baby Is flourishing). I’ve predicted correctly her pregnancy and gender. So she wanted me at her kids baptism as a guest and my bf as her dj for fun. Till here, everything is okay…till one night, a week before the baptism, she comes super irritated with her father because he didn’t wanted the witch at his grandkids baptism. Even saying that he would have the priest do something to the table I would be at…hello to the new witch hunt 🤷‍♀️ saying thinks like “I will make a scene if she comes” “I will do whatever it takes so she feels uncomfortable” (it’s not hard to make me, a social anxious potato uncomfortable)…
I’ve seen her father before and he always seemed so nice, and then…it’s not the first time that people judge me because of my work, I comprehend that they do not understand it and simply judge a book by its cover, but it deeply infuriates me in some way. Not feeling welcomed made me feel sick to my Stomach when I truly did nothing wrong. I’ve only helped his daughter and supported her through thick and thin.
I ended up crying my eyes out (forgot to mention that I’m sensitive af) but got my things together and ended up going so she wouldn’t lose her dj a week prior to the event, my bf didn’t wanted to go anymore due to the disrespect towards me, but I made everything ignoring my own feelings for her. He ignored me all day long not even saying hello like he did to all guests (thank god after all he said before).
Nowadays we are still friends but I just can’t be too much in her life so I don’t aggravate her dads feelings or something…just for being myself 🤷‍♀️ oh and her mom is a hairdresser who was the last person to cut my hair nearly two years ago and she cut too much leaving me with a strange hair cut, way shorter than I wanted (I was trying to let my hair grow and it went from nearly mid back to the shoulder.). And one time I bought her kid a present, went to her home to present her with it and her mom Called asking what the creature was doing at her home…needles to say that she never touched my hair again nor have I been at her home again….yeah both her parents have something against me, at least she smiled and said hello at the baptism, lol. How comforting!
This was last summer, and I’ve had other moments where I felt people where or are disgusted with what I do, or trying to use me because of it for their own benefit. Like old schools colleagues who never gave a damn about when when in school and now that I have my tarot job, I’m cool out of the blue, but you know what? At the end of a long day, when people who truly admire and respect my job compliment their reading and bring back positive feedbacks…that’s what give me fuel to not give up…because I have thoughts about giving up a million times…
And if you are reading this and would or are working full time with tarot: never let others opinion get too deeply into your skin. Do what makes sense to you and be happy while you’re doing it. We won’t get acceptance or respect from everybody, so let’s cherish the ones who do.
And having shitty days like I’m having right now because memories like this are coming up? Are natural and normal…just keep swimming 🧡
This was just a stupid rant. Thank you for your attention 🧡

2023.05.29 17:37 Botchko Heading on a business trip

Feeling relieved that I can remain sober this weekend, before I would try to promise myself to not drink an rest up for travel then get drunk all day and night before heading to the airport. The amount of anxiety relief and emotional stability the days leading up to a work trip is night and day, grateful for the support with my family and especially with this community. If anyone can relate or in the same position, these trips become so much easier remaining sober. Any city I would land in my immediate GPS, even before reaching the rental car station was “liquor store near me” and wake up in my hotel with a bottle and 4-6 IPAs beside my bed and roll out of bed and try to get to my place of business on time. Never would be on time of course, made up a “meeting” that I had to take before and keep my team waiting on me even though my whole purpose of the trip was to get there for a day on site and provide leadership along with help. Never been more focused in my life. IWNDWYT at the airport!!!

2023.05.29 17:37 Orphandestroyer98 Handle with Care 6

Memory transcript subject: Lani, Venlil Gardner Date: [standardized human time] October 27th, 2136
Next paw was when Chris would be able to go to school, we have all his supplies so as a treat me and him went on a walk through town. I was passing by Marlik’s place so went inside and greeted him.
“Good paw Marlik how are you?” Marlik turned in my direction as he was tending his plants and when he saw Chris his wool puffed up. “WHY IS THAT PREDATOR NEAR YOU?!” Marlik was panicking he dropped his water fan on the ground. “Look Marlik its fine this is just my new son” I tried to calm Marlik down and his wool only slightly went down. “Look Lani I know we’re wonderful friends but what were you thinking bring him in here” Marlik then turned to Chris and Chris just stared silently with his hands in his hoodie pockets. “Look Marlik how about you and me talk at the table while Chris just takes a look at your garden” there was brief silence.
“Fine but if that predator ruins any of my plants we’re gonna have a problem” I could hear the slight anger in his voice so we headed to the table while Chris walked into the garden marveling at its beauty.
“So you mind exposing to me why you adopted a human?” I turned away from Chris and towards Marlik. “I just felt awful for them and hearing about Chris’s case I just knew I had to take him in” Marlik then grabbed a cup and filled it with juice and took a sip. “What does your daughter think of this Lani I mean seriously don’t you think this will affect her in school?” Marlik took a big sip from his juice. “Look Marlik my daughter hopes that it will be fine I’m just worried about the other kids you know” “look Lani it’s just that you need to be careful alright, also what was so special about Chris’s situation that you chose him?” I got a bit nervous when he asked “apparently he has something called autism” Marlik was now curious when he heard this. He tilted his head “what is autism?” He took another sip of his juice. “Is a genetic thing that makes it so he’s better at problem solving but it also affects his social skills as he has trouble with that” Marlik then looked at me “so it’s kinda like Predators disease?” When I heard this I got angry. “IT IS NOTHING LIKE PREDATORS DISEASE ALRIGHT,ITS JUST HIS BRAIN!” Marlik went back a bit with his wool puffed up a bit “Look Lani just calm down I don’t mean to insult him its just that it sounds similar” I leaned over the table “well maybe you shouldn’t go around assuming things like that, I mean you say that to a full grown human who knows what will happen” when I finished saying that Chris walked into the room. “Hey you guys done talking or? Me and Marlik then turned to Chris. “Oh yeah we we’re just finishing” Chris then turned to Marlik “hey you have a wonderful garden just one question” Marlik then stared at Chris.
“And what would that be?” Chris then pointed to a statue in the garden of Venlil with wings. “Where did you buy a statue like that, I mean it looks somewhat familiar to me but I just don’t know why” Marlik than looked at the statue and then back at Chris “I bought it at a antique store in town” “okay cool hey Lani can we go now?” I looked over to Chris “yeah sure come on”
We then left Marlik’s house and started walking around the town again when Chris stopped and was staring at a building. “Hey Chris you alright?” Chris then turned to me “they actually have a vegan Mc Donald’s?, come on we have to get something to eat” Chris then grabbed me by the hand and we walked towards the restaurant and inside. We then order a couple fries, some apple and a soda. “So Lani how do you like the fries?” I turned towards Chris “they are delicious I mean I can’t believe these are made of plants and they sell them so cheap” me and Chris then talked for a bit as we walked back home.

(Yes, I did search.)
I've been trying to get Debian working again on my X13s, since Bookworm is nearing release and the RC2 of the Bookworm installer supposedly has X13s support. Has anybody had any success actually using the new Bookworm installer? The RC4 installer black-screens shortly after selecting "Install" for me.

2023.05.29 17:36 nickel4asoul I still feel like I should've done more.

About a week ago, I (34m) was walking to the nearby supermarket and had to pass through a walkway that went under a station. There were several other people ahead of me walking in the same direction and another behind us.
There are several bars near to where I live and a town centre with even more, so it's not unusual to hear drunk people getting into fights or shouting. Before I'd entered the tunnel there'd been the sound of two people in a loud argument and a possible fight before one of them began coming our way - the person behind us.
He was muttering and ranting to himself, saying really sick shit, so could hear him getting closer. I looked behind me to see which side of the tunnel he was on so he could pass by, but when I turned back around I caught the two girls ahead of me flinch and realised I'd missed something important. I'd initially thought he was just wearing a hood, only now that he was a couple steps behind me it became clear it was a sweater wrapped around his head with only the eyes exposed. And that's when I spotted he was holding a butchers knife.
Between the look in his eyes, which I can only describe as crazed or like meeting the gaze of a wild animal, and the sight of the knife I'd already begun to run. The most I managed to do in that moment was hold out my arms to help the two ahead of me move a bit faster and by the time all of us had reached the top, he was out of the tunnel and staring at us. It was a the most pure fight or flight moment I've ever felt and it wasn't a conscious decision on my part to start running.
This is the moment where I still think I could've done more. I'd left my phone at home because the shop was so close and the only way to call the police was to continue on. The guy wasn't chasing any of us in particular and seemed to be moving eratically, making me think he was on something or having an episode. There was another man from the tunnel who'd been walking his dog and we looked at each other before giving the knife wielder more distance.
There was a chance we could have incapacitated him and the reason I still think about that small possibility is because by the time I returned from the shop less than 10 minutes later (after notifying the security and manager to warn people who might be heading in that direction), there was an ambulance and police cars responding to a stabbing (which several bystanders confirmed). I don't know what happened to the victim beyond being taken to hospital, but can't help thinking I and the other guy (if he'd helped) had a better chance than whoever the knife wielder ended up attacking.

2023.05.29 17:36 MyNameIsAMeme Jimmy Butler is a bigger foul merchant than Harden, he's actually the best in the league.

I saw the thread yesterday comparing the FTR(free throw rate) of Harden to Butler and I decided to do some more research on the topic. The results were actually pretty interesting.
Butler since joining Miami has been Top 5 in FTR twice, 6th once, and did not qualify once due to missed games(would’ve placed Top 5). For the most part his FTR is only comparable to players you foul on purpose. Embiid was the only other player with similar usage and FTR.
I decided to compare Miami Butler to 2016-2020(Prime) Harden because most people tend to complain the most about the flopping during that time period. I picked a 4 year span for Harden because Butler has been in Miami for 4 years(2019-2023).
FTA Chart Link
In terms of just attempts at the line Harden clearly has the edge, but that does not really tell the full story. Harden was shooting and handling the ball far more often than Butler. This chart here provides much more context.
FTA + FGA Combo
Harden was shooting a few more free throws a game, but was also attempting far more shots per game. Just from looking at this chart you can tell Jimmy Butler has a far higher FTR.
I saw a lot of people saying “Well Jimmy goes to the rim and Harden just shoots threes,” So I looked into the shooting stats.
% of FGs at Rim
Jimmy did take a higher percentage of shots near the rim, but that doesn't really matter once you do the actual math.
# of FGs at Rim
Harden was actually taking more shots at the rim and it was only really close for one season. So Butler takes fewer shots by a wide margin of 7.5 shots, shoots less at the rim in comparison to Harden, how does he manage to shoot even close to the amount of free throws Harden was getting?
I thought maybe usage could help me understand why Butler was shooting free throws at a higher rate than Harden at his prime but that made me even more confused. Even his USG % isn’t close to Harden.
% of FGs from 3-10 ft
Butler did shoot a lot more often from the intermediate range. Maybe he was just getting fouled quite often in this range.
# of FGs from 3-10 ft
It is clear Butler did shoot from this range more often than Harden. Maybe that range is where he gets the free throws.
Free Throw Rate
Butler manages to destroy Harden when it comes to Free throw rate and Harden has the reputation of being one of the biggest floppers in league history. I don’t think there is a reasonable explanation for Butler having a FTR comparable to guys who get fouled on purpose like Giannis, Gobert, and Plumlee. Unfortunately, I could not find a leaderboard for highest FTR in a season but .693 in the 2019-2020 season is the highest I have seen from a wing player.
Harden has this reputation of being a flopper and being horrible to watch, yet Butler is literally statistically better than Harden at drawing fouls. For his entire Heat career Butler has made 6.85 field goals per game and made 7.2 free throws per game. LeBron has only broken over .5 once in his entire 20 year career.
