2023.03.25 02:01 kp-- Douces Séparations

Sailesh sat listlessly watching the rain drops just lazily slapping the window pane he was next to. He'd just arrived from a flight not long ago. Not only could he still feel the strain the long flight had on his knees, he was yearning to perhaps, stretch them out. But an Asar in Kathmandu doesn't relent. The downpour was vicious, often making it difficult to have any fun time. Forget hiking, he'd be lucky to even get past the hotel without getting soaking wet. As he took another long swig of his cigarette, he contemplated the life choice that led him to the place he was currently. Surely, it'd mark a closure, perhaps seal the old wound. He'd relish this.
As his breath clashed with the pane, and fog slightly formed, he was interrupted by the host,"So brother, what will you be having today?". He impatiently waved him off, angry that the waiter had interrupted his train of thoughts. The waiter, rather meekly said,"So will you have anything else, sir? This is your 6th peg, Mother was wondering if you'd like anything else". Sailesh softly chuckled before replying "I'm waiting". As the waiter gave him a knowing nod, and gently faded away, he took another swig of the whiskey he was drinking. Cheap shit will always be cheap, in this shithole, he thought to himself. Still, anything to get that familiar burn down your throat, with the slight buzzy sensation in your temple. For the money he was tossing at it, he couldn't possibly complain. It would be that he dearly missed his scotch - his favorite poison. He rapped at the table impatiently, she hasn't changed a bit, had she? Always taking her sweet time. As he could make out the silhouette of a woman with a child through the foggy glass, he grew excited: "She came, she finally did!". Not only that realization made him jerk back from him day dreaming, he proceeded to straighten up, and pull his hair back. After taking a few moments to compose himself, he hailed the waiter silently to take away the glass and empty his ash tray. As the entrance door slowly opened, he could make out his once love of his life, slowly approaching him with a kid, his, presumably. Aakanshya was a woman of sophistication, and absolute grace. The moment she walked towards you, you'd feel a gentle breeze on your forehead, whilst the back of your throat dried out, and you just wanted to steal a gaze from her, as long as time allowed. Her full lips often made you aware that even despite not smiling, she had a soft, gentle curve that made her face anything but hard. Suffice to say, Sailesh felt a cocktail of emotions within him growling, as he looked at a woman he once loved over anything else.
As she sat down with the kid, Sailesh gently motioned towards her. After a brief eye contact, he felt as if they were pulled down, away from it. Perhaps he still had feelings for her. Perhaps he was here to find out why things happened, the way they did. Still, he could feel the pangs of that same constricting pain in his heart, as if someone, or something, held it. It took an effort breathing in. And thus, he started, "So Aaku...". Aaku gently smiled back, that same smile he now knew he yearned for more than 5 years. As she waved, the kid chimed in, "Is he the uncle you were talking about, mummy?". Aakanshya slowly nodded, then proceeded to speak, "Yes, Sailesh uncle here is my best childhood friend. We practically grew up together, just like you and Saakshi". "Eww, Momma grew up with a boy? That's so funny hahaha". "No Arya, uncle here was very good at tying my ribbons! Firstly, say hi to uncle, will you, dear?" Arya suddenly shouted, "Namastey Sailesh uncle!" in a manner that could only be described as being contagious. It was impossible not to have your heart melt right there and there, this some five odd years old brat, speaking in the cutest manner possible. Sailesh extended his hand "I'm Sailesh, how old are you?". Arya looked puzzled at the hand offered to her, promptly looking towards her mother for clues on what to do. As Aakanshya motioned Arya to shake his hand, Arya followed suit. Sailesh hasn't shook a hand that was more tender, warm in a while. As he dismissed her hand, he directed his gaze towards Aakanshya. "How long has it been, again?" he said, words slightly slurred. Perhaps the whiskey finally hit. As Aakanshya drew a long breath, Sailesh leaned back, reaching for his zippo. That's when he noticed her hard gazed, the same stone cold, disappointed pair of the most beautiful doe eyes one could imagine, staring through him. As he followed her gaze to Arya, it hit him that perhaps lighting a cigarette in front of a child, wasn't the best of decisions. Arya chortled,"Look momma, uncle smokes too, just like Daddy!". As Aakanshya frowned,"Momma are you about to shout at uncle?", with the most innocent of eyes. Sailesh bit his lips in a mixture of embarrassment, and restlessless. Yeah, fucking A man, fucking A, light a cig right in front of the kid.
"So how have you been?" Sailesh said, huffing after his own silliness. Aakanshya answered,"I'm doing great, Sailu, how are you doing?". "Doing fine. Company offered me a vacation plan, I rejected, caught the very first plane from Cali straight here so I could perhaps go visit old friends. But with this weather...", Sailesh chuckled. Aaku sighed, "Well, that's a nice change I suppose. You always were the overworker". As Sailesh motioned the waiter yet again, he asked Arya, bored, "So what will you have, Arya?" Arya took the menu, and immediately pointed at what she wanted : An icecream. Well, she was certainly her mother's child, this girl. Once the orders were placed, Sailesh spoke "So what are you doing these days?" Aakanshya slowly turned her head towards Arya, and said "Well, mostly taking care of Arya. Housework was much more difficult than I imagined", she smiled softly. "How long are you staying?" Sailesh sighed,"Hard to tell. I can return anytime, but I was looking to meet old faces here. Suffice to say that's nigh impossible at this weather. So I'm probably going to get holed up in a hotel till I get back home". "And how are your parents, how's Aunty doing?" "You know they're dead, Aaku. Why must you ask?" Aakashya's eyes widened,"When?". Sailesh bitterly replied,"It's been what, 2-3 years?" "I'm sorry, Sailesh, I didn't know that". Sailesh's lips curved ironically, as he smiled and retorted,"Well, it's none of your business anyway, so there". Before those words were barely out, he regretted saying it. "But I do care. And I'm sorry." Sailesh could see hints of tear well up in her eyes. "Sorry I wasn't there for Aunty and Uncle". Sailesh whipped back, "Well they'd not count on it, after all, you abandoned me". Aakanshya look at Sailesh, with a look of surprise, speechless. Arya, startled, looked at Aakanshya, "Mommy, are you crying? Are you about to have a fight with uncle, just like daddy?" Sailesh asked, opportunistically, "Do mommy and daddy get in fights often?" "Yes, daddy shouts at mommy, and mommy shuts the door and cries. It's really sad, you know -" Aakanshya interrupted Arya's monologue, and quietly motioned her to hush. So Sailesh went into brooding, before letting out his next question, "You're happy with him, aren't you?" He could feel Aakanshya visibly disturbed, silent. Perhaps blaming her from the get go wasn't the best of ideas. At the same moment, the orders were served, and that was the end of that. As mere small talked, veiled in pain were exchanged on both sides, Sailendra couldn't help but walk down back the memory lane.
It was that night, that had been their last. They had sneaked out of their friend's wedding together, got to his apartment, then started making love. Intimacy with her was a special time, he'd only been vulnerable with so many women. As they rolled over the bed, he had gotten up to look at the moon-lit fields across the window. He had sat down in the arm chair, contemplating the difficulties ahead in life. He was but merely deep in thought, when she had rolled over, glistening in sweat beads, whilst gently being caressed by the moonlight. That's when she'd said, "Sailu, we should get married, na?" He had but merely scoffed, looking at her saying, "Babe, I'm hitting the states next week, I won't be back for at least 4 years, you seriously think I'd be able to take care of myself, let alone you?!" Whilst running his fingers on her playfully, he'd find her smiling slightly, then turning over, pulling the blankets. And that was the exchange they had, before she abruptly called Sailesh a week after he landed on states, stating she was getting married soon. And him, in a foreign land, feeling utterly dejected, and betrayed. Why did she choose this banker, over him? What possibly could that bald jerk give her, that he couldn't?
As Sailesh was wading through the free fall of his thoughts, reality struck when Arya tugged at his jacket. "Uncle, will you come home? I'll show you my doll". Sailesh, frowning, shook his head. Suppose it was time to part ways. The visit had been extempore, after all. He had called her on messenger right as he landed, perhaps to make peace with himself. Though how exactly this meeting ended up making him any less disturbed than he already was: He wouldn't know. All he knew was the ship had sailed, and he was left out in the rain. As the bills were paid, and they stood in front of the restaurant under umbrellas, Sailesh said "Well, guess this is it then. Take care, alright?" As Aakanshya turned after nodding, he could have sworn he saw her back shake.
As he stood there, questioning himself, all the while lighting his cigarette, he couldn't help but kick himself for being an ass. Perhaps he went too hard on her. After all, she did come, didn't she? And yet, he was right there, in the same spot she left her, 6 years back. As the gentle pitter patters of droplets onto the puddle singed but meekly, he looked at the mother-daughter slowly walking away from her. He was but just there, looking at her, then her daughter, a spitting image of her, going away, engrossed in conversation. As he scratched his nape, he couldn't help but spot a familiar birthmark on little Arya. Something he had grown accustomed to, often bemoaned about for being unsightly. Then it dawned him, that perhaps, this would be the last time he'd see her, as he couldn't possibly face himself after today's charades.
Not after what just happened, not after what he said to her.

2023.03.25 02:00 TheGhostHuntr A 150 Skyrim SSE Mod Load Order With No CTD's, or Bugs

After a long and drooling three weeks of modding up Skyrim SSE for Xbox X/S, I finally nailed it down to where you can have 150 mods with the old Bruma Expansion, and experience no CTD's or bugs.
I went back and forth using "Beyond Skyrim: Bruma v 1.3.3," and modding without it. But if you really like that mod as I do, you can have it ,and still add to the game with some really cool mods.
Unfortunately, you can't use the newer Bruma Expansion it has to be the older one, but even so, I managed to have a ton of creatures and just about every conversation mod there is, land, water and tree overhauls as well, and the game runs smooth. Been playing with this load order for almost two weeks and have had no crashes or bugs so far.
Make sure you install them in the order they're listed, and of course remember, when you do the NPC overhauls, do a hard reset for each. With all these I still have about 234.6MB left over, so you won't be overloading your game.
If any of these mods are not for you, feel free to add, or play around with the ones you prefer more, but at least load this list for you base, and then play around with the mods you want. If you nay questions, feel free to message me:

2023.03.25 01:43 FreshScarcity7199 Pain, trouble eating for 3 years, worsening. Weight loss. Scans keep coming back normal.

For background, I’m a 21f with POTS and Celiac disease but I’ve been gluten free for 3 years and the blood tests confirm this. Issues started with celiac but after going gluten-free, the pain never entirely abated and slowly got worse. The POTS I’ve had for 10 years and it used to be very well managed, but improper nutrition has caused it to flare out of control, so my brain fog is so bad that I can’t think to write a post like this on most days. I am doing everything to fix my health on my own (exercising as able, proper fluid and electrolyte intake, force-feeding of healthy calorie-dense foods such as rice and potatoes) but it feels useless as I am still losing weight, and I’m already pretty underweight (87 lbs currently, 5’2” in height). I might feel better for a couple weeks and gain a couple pounds back but then the abdominal problems return with seemingly no trigger. (I’m at 87 pounds after a good week).
The pain is around the bottom of my ribcage, center of my body, and throughout my stomach. This starts 15 minutes after I begin eating and can last for up to 6 hours. I can be starving yet somehow still feel full and in severe pain from my last meal. Sometimes the pain will be milder but then later wake me up in the middle of the night with severe painful bloating and acid reflux. Pain is partially relieved by lying down after eating but it can’t all be postural because it wakes me in the night despite trying many different sleep positions.
Weirder still is that so many tests have come back normal. Normal upper endoscopy and upper GI study showed no obstructions or abnormalities beside acid reflux. My stomach does hang low when I am standing (below the button of my pants) and appears to be enlarged but with no visible cause. Gastric emptying study came back inconclusive (exactly 10% remaining after 4 hours) and live scan showed stomach movement, ruling out gastroparesis. HIDA scan was normal. I have unpredictable bowel habits that are constantly changing, but trying antibiotics wrecked my gut and left me with diarrhea for 2 months. Recent CBC shows low red blood cell and hemoglobin levels, so I have since begun supplementing with prenatal vitamins (I’m not pregnant btw) which have helped me have a bit more energy.
It’s hard to tell what other symptoms I have that are connected to this because my POTS causes a lot of issues including brain fog, heart rate and blood pressure abnormalities, dizziness, etc. But some of the other issues I have had primarily after the gut issues began 3 years ago include nasal congestion, recurring low grade fever, heat rashes and facial flushing, throat discomfort, and minor bladder issues. I can’t tell you what might be connected but I’m listing everything.
My current medications are Propranolol and Fludrocortisone (for the POTS) and Nortriptyline and Gabapentin (for the gut pain. But I’m slowly getting off the Gabapentin because it stopped helping).
Any input of any form is very greatly appreciated. I’ve already been dropped by multiple physicians because they couldn’t help me and I don’t know where to go from here.

2023.03.25 01:41 _Malara WIBTAH? Potential April fools day joke, but would like to know if it’s too far.

I’d like to do a prank where I make a bunch of cake balls and cover them with chocolate. Then another batch of Brussels sprouts covered in chocolate. Is this too far of an April fools prank because it involves food? The one person in my work that has a gluten allergy has been told (and I’m making a gluten free batch too), but I’d like the community’s input before I do it.
So… Would I Be The Asshole?

2023.03.25 01:35 babyxxpigeon17 A Niagara vacation

It was so terribly cold. Snow was falling, and it was almost dark, when out of the blue, my wife called me at work. "We're going to Niagara Falls for the weekend. I got us an awesome deal!"
We had both been working at our first "full-fledged" jobs for a year and had reached that moment after graduation when you suddenly realize you can't make that impact on the world your student enthusiasm once promised. At first, I just sighed. It was the dead of January, and I had already expended all my energy on a week of inconsequential stress. I just wanted to collapse on the couch for two days. Sarah felt a similar weary exhaustion. I could tell. Her tone was more hopeful than excited, but she had dreaded the routine we were sinking into and was trying her best to pull us free.
I looked to the ceiling and adjusted my telephone headset. At that time I was working at Stats Canada on the tele-query desk. I took a deep breath and, as convincingly as possible, said, "Sounds good." I don't think she bought it, but we went nonetheless.
This was Niagara Falls before the casinos when there was a very distinct off-season. When we got to the hotel, we were given the details of our "lovers' special". One dinner to be used either Friday or Saturday, two breakfasts, a roll of tokens for the arcade, 10% off some "4D" movie ride experience, and a 2-for-1 coupon to Max Tussaud's. I guessed it was Madame's nephew? We also got a bottle of sparkling wine in our room and chocolate treats on our pillows. I was impressed. It sounded good.
When we got into our room and saw the "bottle" of wine - basically an aeroplane-sized glass and half - and the chocolates - "fun wrapped" Oh Henry's left over from Halloween - we both started to laugh. The tone for two wonderful days had been set. We decided to cash in on our dinner coupon right away.
The restaurant off the lobby had hopes of being better. There were huge panoramic windows that promised a view of the gorge. Unfortunately, they had some winter moisture problems that day, and it felt like we were defrosting amid the dripping streaks and foggy patches. The decor was your standard booths and tables though the "romantic" lighting was unique. Dollar store battery-powered tea lights were lodged inside thick tumbler glasses and shed a muted pleasantness in a "what a great idea for a craft" sort of way. I had a feeling they were created by our waitress since she was the one who always seemed to be fussing with them. Only one other couple was in the dining room, so she attended to us immediately.
"Can I get you something to start?"
"Sure." "Thank you, that would be nice." We both responded simultaneously.
"And what would the lady like this evening?"
Sarah smiled at the flattery. "I think I'll have a glass of white wine." She glanced over at me to see my reaction. This was a subtle cue of the mood to follow. Diet Coke was usually the beverage of choice. She didn't normally drink alcohol. One glass numbed her nose and made her giggle far too easily. When she did drink, however, it meant she was comfortable with my company and open to anything to follow. I raised my eyebrows in a debonair way.
"And for the gentleman?"
"Do you have Foster's on tap?"
"Yes we do."
"I'll have a pint please."
Sarah smiled at the happy memories I invoked. At university, Foster's was my signature beer. It was at a time when Crocodile Dundee was a known name, and Australia was inexplicably cool. 15 cent buffalo wings and a pitcher of Foster's was the Tuesday night special at the London Arms pub. There the Classics Club would meet and, as a group, circle the wagons and drink ourselves into extroverts.
As soon as the waitress left, Sarah smiled at me. She reached out and held my hand across the table. With my gaze on hers, she slipped her foot from her shoe and slowly began sliding it up my pant leg.
"I got a pedicure this morning." She announced seductively.
I nodded and pretended I didn't notice her invitation. "What colour?" I asked.
"I'm not telling." She teased. "You'll just have to find out later." Her devious little smile was gorgeous.
"Mmmm. I can't wait."
When the waitress returned with our drinks, we immediately retreated to our personal spaces as if we had been discovered by the chaperone. Sarah opened the menu and began to salivate at the variety.
"Can we add an appetizer to the package dinner?" Her question seemed innocent enough.
"You're on the package?" Our friendly waitress disappeared, and we were no longer a lady or a gentleman. She ripped the menu out of Sarah's hand and took mine before I had even opened it. She then scurried to her podium and brought back a tattered, grease-stained, photocopied page that we had to share. We both burst out laughing.
The waitress was flustered that we were not as bothered as she was. "The drinks are NOT included!"
"What choices do we have?" I asked, expecting the usual chicken or fish. I had been on many packages before with my parents.
"Coffee or tea." The waitress snapped.
Sarah and I looked at each other in amused disbelief.
"I'll have coffee please." I didn't even flinch at the ridiculously limited package. I was eager to get my order in early.
"And I'll have the tea!" Sarah followed my lead. "Can I have some milk with that?"
"Yes." The waitress snarled.
"Fantastic!" I enthused.
"Yes, great! I'm glad we got the package, Honey." Sarah joked.
The waitress stormed off and returned sometime later with our lettuce-only salads drowned in Kraft's Italian dressing and our chewy chicken dinners, which she had thoughtfully allowed to cool. She tossed the plates on the table and left us to peacefully devour our deal. We didn't see her again until we requested the bill. For some reason, we found it amusing to leave a generous tip, which of course, defeated the purpose of the package, but we didn't care. It was fun.
The rest of the holiday was marred with similar off-season products and services. The wax museum was only half open, so we couldn't see the pop stars of the seventies. I didn't think it was a problem, but Sarah pouted playfully. She really wanted to see young Bowie. Meanwhile, the arcade was particularly stingy about spitting out coupons. So much so that Mike, the scraggly-haired repair guy, ended up escorting us from game to game and repairing the devices on demand. In no time, he was acting like an old drinking buddy. He joked and laughed, then, out of the blue, revealed that working at the Niagara Falls Fun Centre wasn't his career choice, that his dream was to be part of a travelling carnival. He desperately wanted to see more of the world, he explained and socialize with a greater variety of "wildlife." Mike winked at Sarah to punctuate his meaning, then began advising her on which games to play.
Sarah was partial to Skee ball and clearly had career potential in the sport, but Mike quickly pointed out that the token-to-coupon payout was not the best. In a furtive whisper, he revealed that The Storm Stopper was your best bet, provided the arcade had left it on its original factory settings. He assured us the ones here were "cool." The game had lights that ran around the outside in opposite directions and you had to hit the button at just the right spot to win. It looked impossible, but Mike was right; if you calculated tokens in versus coupons won, it was the best deal. It only took a little practice to win a minor jackpot every 5 or 6 times.
We would cheer each win as if Toronto had won the Stanley Cup. I would give a quick fist pump and a full lung "Yes!" while Sarah would jump up and down screaming, "WhoooHooo!" Of course, in the end, when we cashed in, "Mike's secret" only bumped us up from a key-chain flashlight to a "deluxe" nail beauty set. Mind you, it did come complete with clippers, scissors, a file AND a cuticle scraper. Not only that, it was all neatly packaged in a paisley-patterned pink and green plastic vinyl case. Mike was so pleased to give us our prize and to be honest, we were thrilled to win it if only to see his broad chicletted smile. It was more of a trophy than a grooming set.
That night, I made reservations for us at a fancy Chinese food restaurant - the Bamboo Garden. When we arrived, we had half-expected renovations of some sort. Instead, the place was immaculate. Gentle pools teeming with goldfish highlighted the epic black and red Ming dynasty decor. Real candles flickered on crisp white tablecloths. Again, the restaurant was virtually ours. The reservations on my part were entirely unnecessary. In fact, as soon as we entered, they knew us by name and guided us directly to our table. A live lounge piano caressed the air, its notes danced vaguely around familiar harmonies until finally, as if prompted by our presence, a song emerged immediately accompanied by the velvet voice of oriental karaoke. It was our song remastered

One simple thing i want in a new NFS...
...I think it's time for devs to start getting more creative with the open world activities/side missions...
I'm tired of long jumps, billboards, silly colllectibles, speed traps and speed runs.
idk, bring back free roam npcs even Payback had free roam npcs you could race against and unlock a whole sub-side quest tree with them.
I don't know, bring back Challenge Series from og games, anything...
Also, wouldn't hurt adding a sorting/filter option to the map on Unbound, even completed activities still shows up both in the menu and in-game making it even more of a pain in the ass to complete them...

Why do restaurants offer gluten free buns but not gluten free fries? Or even offer whether their fries are gluten free or not? So close to being accommodating.

General Resources

REMINDER: Bind your account!

Please remember to bind your accounts and take note of your UID, member code, server location, and any information related to your account (e.g. amount spent, student roster, etc). If anything happens to your account (e.g. losing access, unauthorized access), you will need to provide as much info as you can to Nexon's customer support email. Guest accounts that are unbound will be extremely difficult to recover, perhaps impossible.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

[01] When does the server reset?
For global, dailies reset at 19:00 UTC and weeklies reset on Sunday.
[02] Should I re-roll this account?
This will depend on your priorities with PvE, PvP, or both, but you can generally see the “ideal” units as Iori, Hibiki, and Tsubaki for most content, while Shun and Haruna are great for PvP.
[03] Who should I spend my elephs on? Who should I mystic unlock?
At the start, prioritize spending your blank elephs on getting Serina to 2-star for the increased healing stat, Tsubaki to 3-star for the extra tankiness when she is reloading. It is generally advised not to spend your elephs on increasing characters to 4-star and 5-star ratings, since there is only a stat increase and the amount of elephs needed is quite high.
[04] What do my support students’ stats do?
Aside from increasing the stats of their own skills, support students will provide additional stat boosts to your striker team. The specific increase(s) can be viewed by clicking on “Support” on the right side of the team formation screen.
[05] What should I buy in the shop?
[06] What does the “leader” position do?
This is purely cosmetic, as it changes which student’s chibi shows up on the map.
[07] What benefits are there to joining a club?
  1. Students assigned to assist with TA cannot also be selected to assist with JFD.
  2. 20 credits are rewarded every minute by setting assistants.
  3. The specific unit that is borrowed can be only used once a day.
  4. There's a fee of 40,000 credits, when borrowing a assistant student.
  5. The donor receives 50,000 credits instead; even though the fee is 40,000 credits.
  6. The fee can only be received 20 times a day.
[08] How does the pity system work?
You need to pull, at a minimum, 200 times in order to get 200 recruitment points that are redeemed for the character you want. The recruitment point system does not carry over from banner to banner, it is only shared between banners that are concurrently running.
[09] Why can’t I find my friend’s club?
While the servers’ updates are separated from JP and global, the global servers are separated further into smaller divisions. You need to be on the same server as your friend, which you can check from the home screen: top-right menu button > account > version info. The server must be the same.
[10] When is X banner coming? Should I save for X student?
We never know for sure, due to the fact that global servers are on an accelerated schedule compared to JP. Please refer to this guide for some more info.
[11] Should I use Pyroxenes to refill my AP?
If you want to prioritize progression, the first three daily refills are decently valuable, this is because the Pyroxene cost of refilling will increase for every three refills. If you are focused on character collection or future banners, you should be saving your Pyroxenes.
[12] Why can’t I buy X student’s eleph in the shop?
You can only buy elephs of students you own.
[13] What should I craft?
At the start, prioritize crafting cafe furniture until your comfort is maxed out, then students’ gifts, then whichever upgrade materials you need. The crafting system is the only way to get furniture and gifts at the moment.
[14] What is the “Anniversary” in account settings?
This is your birthday, used for characters to wish you happy birthday.
[15] When will the beginner guide missions for Nonomi end?
This is a permanent addition, so feel free to take your time with the tasks.
[16] What is the best place to farm EXP?
You can run any map to farm EXP, as the EXP gain is equal to the amount of AP spent (i.e. 10 AP spent = 10 EXP gained). You should be looking at the stages that drop the equipment upgrade materials that you need.
[17] What is the “Secret Tech Sheet” in the Total Assault shop?
This is used to upgrade a student’s (non-EX) skill to level 10.
[18] Is it worth doing a raid if I can’t pass X difficulty level?
It is always more efficient to clear the highest difficulty you can finish instead of failing/forfeiting a higher difficulty.
[19] Can I claim the Limited Students through exchanging Expert Permits? How often does the Expert Permit shop resets?
You cannot get the limited students via this method. You will still need to pull for them. There's no specific mentioned but it's expected to be monthly.

2023.03.25 00:24 Silent-Elevator-8998 Looking into Hashi diagnosis, unsure of what lab values mean

Hey guys! I have been dealing with a lot of health issues for a while, I am 21 and just got a bunch of lab work done because I found a good doctor finally. I also found out that other people in my family have been diagnosed with hashimoto's disease. However, my lab values all came back within normal ranges. My TSH was 0.92, my free T3 was 4.1 and free T4 is 14. I do have a vitamin D deficiency but have been taking supplements for a while to treat it. B12 and other vitamins are all good. Only weird things were my GGT is low at a 9, my leukocyte esterase in my urine sample was high and my iron is high at 39.
Is it possible to be diagnosed but not have abnormal lab values? I have an appointment in a few days and I want to bring it up but I am not sure if he will just say that everything was normal.
My symptoms are: pressure in my throat, trouble swallowing, stomach pains, food sensitivities (gluten and dairy mostly), anxiety, depression, mood swings, weight gain and loss, intolerance to heat, joint pains, tmj and myofascial pain syndrome, irregular heart rate/palpatations, weird bowel movements (constipation, malabsoprtion as well), and suuuuper bad brain fog and memory problems.
I swear I feel like I am going crazy, I keep forgetting everything and I am always tired. I also have been having weird moments where I dissociate for a long time and then the day is like over lol.
Please let me know if you experienced something similar or what other tests I should be asking for!!

2023.03.25 00:15 BiPickleBear 21F/27M, advice on household chores

Background: I met my husband, let’s call him Mike to keep it anonymous, in April of 2022. We got engaged in June of 2022 and married in January of 2023. We met in college while participating in the same program.
My husband was raised with parents who are very very rich and his mother took care of all of the cooking/cleaning. Where I grew up with only my father, so I was in charge of cooking and cleaning since I was 10.
The issue: My husband and I current contribute 50/50 financially for bills, but I found I was doing all of the housework including grocery shopping and cooking. I wouldn’t have an issue with this if he was taking more care of me financially, but he isn’t. In addition, we’ve been letting one of his friends stay in our spare bedroom (he pays a portion of bills) while he’s inbetween places. The friend is very dirty and never cleans anything and the bathroom got disgusting for me to do because it would be covered in boy pubes and toothpaste grime. We had a conversation and although I wanted to split things more evenly, he doesn’t “know” how to do a lot of things. I settled on that if he kept up the bathroom really nice that it was fine that I did literally everything else.
The issue now becomes that he doesn’t keep up with the bathroom. He says that he doesn’t see the things that I think are “dirty”. I have taken him into the bathroom at least 4 separate times since this has become his responsibility (September of 2022 so about 6mo) to explain the things that are dirty and why they need to be cleaned. When he does clean it he asks me what products to use and how to do it. The first few times were fine because I can understand that he wasn’t taught these things, but now it’s become annoying. The point of him taking the bathroom was so that it wouldn’t be on my plate. But he does the absolute bare minimum every single time he does it so it’s never actually fully clean. I thought that it might just be time and practice he needs so I’ve tried to be patient and nice. He’s been receptive to our conversations and accepts that he needs to improve but I don’t feel like he ever actually changes anything.
I’ve left this topic alone for a while because I don’t want our “roommate issues” to become “marriage issues” because at the end of the day it’s just a bathroom. But, I’m wearing thin.
I am a vegan and gluten free so I have to cook all my food. I had a surgery in January and we had a conversation about it because I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the house or cook for a few weeks while I healed. I specifically asked him to keep up with the dishes and make me food during this time. I offered to show him how to cook my food ahead of time but he declined it every time. So, to help him get through taking care of me I prepped some meals. When I was hungry he fed me that. After the peeped food ran out he started to act upset when I’d tell him I needed food. He’d roll his eyes, sigh, and say he didn’t want to make anything. So id be hungry for like 4+ hours before I’d actually get fed.
2 days into that and I talked to him about it. I said it was unacceptable behavior. He apologized and made me food. The next day he tried to make me food, but asked me how to do it. I told him to Google it because I’d offered to show him weeks ago and I physically couldn’t with my healing process. I knew his cooking wouldn’t be mine but he wouldn’t even Google how to make the food and it was unbearable.
Now, I’m able to cook for myself BUT he did not keep up with the dishes like I asked. So literally every single dish is dirty. I said something a week ago and he said he’d work on it. Nothing for 2 days so I asked again. He did one load. It’s been three more days and he unloaded the dishwasher and has yet to do another. It’s now at a point where I don’t have dishes to make myself food and with my diet I have to cook.
I’m just at a loss. I take care of so much. We’ve had conversations about this and he apologizes but nothing is changing. I don’t know what to do or what to say to him at this point. Is this sexism? What do I do?
More context: I graduated my program last month. He left the program a few months ago because it’s not what he wanted. We are both currently unemployed. I’ve been trying to get him to apply to jobs but he’s been not going to school and not working since October of 2022. It would have been so nice for him to take care of the house and cooking while I finished my program but I still did everything even though he wasn’t doing anything. He started applying in February and has only applied to like 6 positions and hasn’t head anything from any of them. I know he’s been struggling emotionally so motivation has been hard but it’s been so long at this point I’m loosing my empathy. He spends most of his day playing video games.

2023.03.24 23:30 Haunting-Ad-9169 Microsoft is selling your personal information to advertisers.

Welcome to big tech ran by liberals. Whatever it takes to fill them coffers is just fine with them.
Here is just a small taste of a standard Windows 11 installation, let alone what those updates do.

The video shows what I am talking about.

But the TLDR is yes they steal then sell all of anything you do with your computer, even with a fresh install.

The solution: Install O&O Shut up 10++, just google it, actions>Recommended then reboot

Also disable customer experience telemetry in services (windows key, type services then press enter. Look for the service I mentioned and double click it. from the dropdown menu look for disable and stop the service . Make sure to hit apply and then OK afterwards then reboot.

I hope this helps anyone who does not like how Microsoft is profiting more than ever selling your personal information.
Afterwards enjoy data mining free OS that runs great. Run wireshark again to verify if your settings worked and search for DNS. The only one you should find is microsoft update. Before theres tons of advertiser DNS!
What made me go this far as to inform people and fix the problem? I posted the exact same thing on microsoft help and my entire post was deleted and i got permanently banned
