2023.03.30 18:56 ChickenParm98701 Spongebob was peak Quality from 1999-2006. "The Best Day Ever" was its turning point

Most will say that once Hillenburg left & the 2004 film came out, that peak Spongebob was over.
I truly believe we still had 2 more great years of Spongebob after the movie. As a kid in 2005/2006, i didnt detect a decline in quality until 2007 came around.
Fear of a Krabby Patty, The Lost Mattress, Skill Crane, Shell of a Man, Selling Out. Gary Come Home special --- all felt iconic to me.
The only so-so episode to me in 2005 was the SquidBob TentaclePants one. And the one where Patrick became really smart.
Wishing You Well, All That Glitters, Karate Island, Wig Struck, Bumner Vacation, A New Leaf, Mrs Puff Youre Fired -- all amazing episodes.
The so-so from 2006 were probably Chimps Ahoy & the one where Patrick dresses up like a lady.
In all honestly, "The Best Day Ever" should have been the series finale. The episide itself is pretty lightweight -- but the song is iconic. Lol.
Once you hit 2007, the eoisodes become more bland. My fav episodes from 2007? Id go with The Thing, Hocus Pocus, Born Wild (the motorcyle ep), SpongeHenge, and To Love a Patty.
^ a decent list but there were so many new episodes in 2007. So in 2007 alone, the bland episodes outnumbered the good episodes. And sadly such a statistic has occured every year since.
I have to note - 4 episodes in 2017/2018 truly blew me away as top notch quality.
Mimic Madness
Squid Noir
The Scavenger Hunt
The ep where Squidward babysits Pearl & she breaches onto dry land.

The land in this area is underlain by a layer of limestone, eroded and dissolved by rainwater and groundwater to form caverns, holes, and tunnels. This type of terrain is called "karst" and results in many geological features such as wet sinkholes, depressions, natural bridges and a disappearing stream. The hikers can either hike the 3.6-mile Sinkhole Trail to view the numerous sinkholes and geological features, or the 2.8-mile Gum Swamp Trail around a cypress and gum swamp. We recommend wear hiking shoes and bring a water bottle, and consider bug spray or long pants/sleeves. 10am

2023.03.30 18:56 Zeitzbach Theory - Why I think Chapter 4 will be about Don.

So before the recent leak, I was a subscriber to the "Introduction Order" theory that based on the introduction in chapter 0, we can tell who's going to be a part of the next chapter. This also lines up somewhat with the lyric of Lament which describes our journey from sinner to sinner and chapters to chapters but they're vague enough you cannot really tell which verse belong to who until you play through them.
However, thanks to the recent leak and how Pmoon say they have no plan to do a Don extraction on the April 6th does make everything a lot more sussy. It might be because of the Don E.G.O so they can do a W Corp on top but it puts Don back on the radar for me to reconsider the theory of the Introduction Order.
Spoiler for some of the books, Leviathan and Library of Ruina btw.
Going with the lyric theory, we're currently at this portion.
Why'd you make my voice stutter?
Why do truths never matter?
Why'd you curse me with "you're a natural born genius"?
The Natural born genius make it sound like it has to be Yi sang but the first 2 sound really weird and doesn't really fit with his poem. Instead, the whole thing, just like Rodion part in the song, is more of a conversation between 2 individuals. The quips lines up with Don Quixote and Sancho. Sancho, in the book, always tell Don what he's seeing only for Don to make up BS excuses to why that's actually something magical or how the inn is a castle. The natural born genius might actually line up with how Sancho was promised to be made a duke only, when given a chance as a joke, ends up being really good at governorship. Just like Rodion and Sonya, it won't be surprising if the role has been reversed as well for Don Quixote and Sancho, like how Sonya went from a poor prostitute to a revolutionary leader that book Rodion failed to become, Sancho might no longer be an easily fooled farmer and is actually a rich nest kid.
But the biggest factor to consider is really the Chapter 4 art card.
The chapter name tells you who it's about. Outcast is Gregor and how he's treated by his family in the book or in this case, as a deserter. Unloving is Rodion and how she acts on impulse and that the focus of Crime and Punishment is about the road to redemption through love. Unconfronting is Sinclair and Kromer and how Sinclair had to be saved by Demain because Sinclair can't muster the courage to face Kromer.
Each of the card also has a scene from the climax of the chapter and the memory of each sinners. Chapter 4 card art however, is an office in Kcorp. Based on the room and how there's a visible fireplace, it looks like a study.
Yisang and Gubo are linked and as we know, Gubo works for Ncorp so Yisang, being a former scientist that works on the gacha system, is likely from N corp as well before he ran which lead to Gubo appearing in Leviathan to chase a runaway who stole the technology of them trying to recreate what Yisang made. This really makes you ask "Why is Kcorp the setting then?"
Meanwhile, who can be considered Unchanging to the point of being delusional, line up with the lyric and also has a rather important moment in the book that takes place in the study? Don Quixote. In the book, when Don returned home after being crowned a knight at an inn to rest and pack up again, his family and friends actually decided to seal up his most prized room, his study, after burning a bunch of his books. Like how Kromer is turned from a minor antagonist into some major, this event can also be written into some major as well because it is the point where Don become even crazier and go on a journey to "Fight his nemesis wizard", dragging Sancho with him.
Also based on the location, we can assume this will take place in either district 11 (Kcorp) or if we move to a new area, District 12. Remember what major event took place near these areas in the past?
The 8 o'clock Circus
The 8 o'clock circus was doing their things at District 12 before retreating to District 10 and in order to get there, they likely have to pass through District 11 so these 3 Districts are the "Circus zone" and we're currently right on them. There's a specific person whose EGO and background is a carnival, Don Quixote. This lines up perfectly with how each base E.G.O art of the identity outright show their major events in their lives that will be revealed in that chapter. Gregor has the smoke war, Rodion has the massacre of her town over what she did and Sinclair has his family.
What do you think? Will it be Yisang? Maybe but I'm really leaning toward Don Quixote now. It's the perfect time for something to happen that result in the the K-corp study being locked away that lead to Don and Sancho going to the circus while they are still in the area.

2023.03.30 18:55 HollowSeeking Another, much messier page on reclaimer (red bed) drops and locked container drops.

Another, much messier page on reclaimer (red bed) drops and locked container drops.
I really should have used a computer.
Something like 400 locked containers and 140 reclaimers were recorded (I had everything unlocked when I started recording these, so drop tables could be notably different with incomplete artifact and consumable pools.)
Important note, there are 4 types of artifacts. Suit artifacts all share one icon and one databank entry. Every other artifact type (xenotech, unknown, and personal if my memory is correct) has unique icons and databank entries.
Locked containers will always drop a unique icon artifact. Every artifact except for a few of the rarest showed up. (Music box ((the rarest artifact)), melted globe, blown nightlight, silver Lattice and reactive stabilizer never showed up from this source for me.)
Reclaimers have a surprisingly small drop pool. They mostly drop artifacts but can give a large proficiency calibrator or situationally a consumable*. Most often you will get a suit artifact ranging from very good in combat (disruptive overload) to useless (emergency proficiency)
BUT! Reclaimers have a chance to drop the rarest personal type artifacts (music box, melted globe, blown nightlight) so they're very useful for databank completion but a coin flip for actual combat usefulness.
Also it's important to note that reclaimers will not kill you nor break a shield. https://youtu.be/JG9bDDklujg
*Reclaimers will give you a consumable instead of an artifact if it doesn't get enough health from you. I haven't nailed the exact value, but I'd guess using it when you have less than 70 integrity (maybe 50 or up to 80) then it can't take enough health from you to make an artifact so you get a consumable. Hopefully a silphium vial.
FINALLY I also recorded 125 Green bed uses, and it spawned bats 46% of the time, so be prepared every time you take a nap.

2023.03.30 18:55 yvaine_5678 I Want To Live Away From My Mother's Rage

Me (16F) and My Sister (13F) have been raised by my Father (47M) from past 3 years. Everything's been good and we really appreciate our dad supporting us in every stage of our life, Our Dad and Our Mother(40F) have been separated since my sister was born but not yet divorced. They've tried to mend their relationship a lot of times but they end with a note of violence, screaming and abuse.
Since childhood, Mom was on meds for anger issues and whenever she got off it she would mentally and physically abuse us. It once got so bad, she got us naked and made us stand in the cold wind for two hours until, our grandma (maternal) got back from a dinner and covered us with towels. The second time mom fought with grandma, she took us to an abandoned Railway Station and threatened to leave us there and didn't take us back until we cried and begged about her being a better mother than my father (I was 9 and my sister was 6). These Episodes of Bursting Out In Anger, stressed us out so much that we had to move from one relative's house to another to escape from her. I have had a relativity nice childhood, the exception being my mother's outbursts.
Mom frequently cried to herself about not being able to get back with my dad and make things work out, I would feel incredibly sad and guilty about this and would often blame myself for their separation until dad mentioned that the marriage was doomed from the start. About my dad, he is a very loving and supportive person. I struggled a lot with my grades and having been bullied in my 4th year for being "Awkward and A Complete Oustcast" to the point where even my teacher would refuse to acknowledge me. Yet, my dad never gave me false hope and bought us to his house whenever mom hit us. It has gotten a lot more better since we started to live with our dad (It happened only because of court's decision, otherwise mom would never let go of her punching bags).
Forward to me turning Fourteen, My Grandparents (Paternal), Aunt's, Uncle's, Cousin's, Friends literally everyone had my back and I was so thankful for it and Still Am. Mom's doing pretty well she ain't getting off her meds and that gave me relief. Me and my sister went to visit, two days into the visit and she started to pester me about my dad's dating life. She wanted me to inform her about all the women my dad meets. This is not the first time. She once checked dad's phone and blamed it on me. Turns she's been doing this for a long time.
So, I met my dad's girlfriend(43F) of one year and she's such a sweetheart, we instantly clicked and found a lot of things in common. Hence, I enjoyed my time with her. My Mom somehow found out about my dad's girlfriend and started sending threats to her to "back off from her husband" she always badmouthed dad and stalked his girlfriend from my account.
At this point, I was really done with her delusions She got access to my group chats and sent messages like "OP is an idiot" "She doesn't get good grades". My Dad called up the police to inform the harassment she put us through, she apologized for her behaviour but we all know she didn't mean it. She tore up my notes, i spent three weeks to write since I was on a sick leave and called me an ungrateful daughter. Her side of relatives admitted her in an mental institution for three days, but she escaped from there to return back to her house and beat my grandma up for complaining to the relatives.
We planned to have an family trip together on my father's side, for that, I needed my identity proof. Turns out it's with my mother, at this point I was on talking terms with her. So I phoned her and asked her to send them. She got absolutely mad and told me off saying "Why do you behave like an adult?" "You have no respect" "You and Your Sister are turning into your Dad" "You share a lot of secrets with him and exclude me" I'm sorry but we don't share any sort of secrets and I can't violate my dad's privacy for you. Now, she won't send the pictures and was stating about how it's her wish to not let us go with our dad's side because they are all "strange" people, I have spent half of my childhood with them.
Right now, I am going to start college in a month and I don't want any hindering chances of me and mother being together ever again that also means lessening our chances to see our maternal grandmother ever again, she has always been for us and also got in between mom beating us causing her to get hit herself. This makes me cry so much, I still have love left for her, mom cried while apologizing after one of her episodes and it made me feel extremely guilty for always escaping whenever she got angry.
My dad feels the same, he always encouraged me to go back to mom and rekindle our relationship because she's not always like that, I rather feel like he feels sympathetic towards her even after she abused him too.
I want to get away really bad, I am currently planning to move to dorms so I would never see her again yet I'm not sure about leaving my sister alone juggling in between, my sister is really affectionate with my maternal grandmother and I know she will go back to her some day. It hurts to see her cry after I hear my mom's insults over the phone.
I'm very much unsure about all the decisions I take because according to my mother "I am a child and not to meddle in adulthood" and "I don't have a say".

2023.03.30 18:53 TheFinnv I messed up, got caught up in a lie and I dont know what to do

For starters, I know this is totally my fault, I just feel a bit lost right now and don't know what to do.

I moved out from my parents at the end of feburary to live with my sister, because I felt stuck at home and always pressured by my mother to do something. I'm currently enrolled in chemistry at Uni, but I've been at it for 4 years now and I'm only moving forward very slowly and am even close to having to quit entirely because of failing classes to often. I've always struggled with studying, I think it's undiagnosed adhd, but everytime I bring it up in my family I get shut down with "Its not adhd, you're just lazy, get your act together". I think the truth might lie somewhere in the middle.
By october last year I had decided to more or less take a break from uni entirely for one semester in hopes of being able to get help, get better and then resume some time later, but it didn't work out, because I always got distracted and there is always other stuff. The few times I tried to reach professionals, I was either referred wrongly after waiting for months, or didnt reach anyone at all. So when my sister decided to offer a place at her new house so I could try and get better without my mother trying to meddle, I took her up on that. As you can see by it taking 4 months to finally move, that was quite a challenge for me as well, both due to external factors as well as my struggeling to follow through with things.
Condition for the move was, that I improve and by that also take at least one class that I had to pass the exam in. That's where my troubles begin. Wanting to fill the time I had started working in December, just 3 days a week but still. Since I had already taken the class, I didnt think I would have to start particularly early on starting to study, so I pushed it back. The problem is, as usual, I pushed too far and as an extra curveball, the Professor teaching that class passed away, meaning the exam might look different. Feeling I coulndt do it anymore, I didnt sign up for the exam, but I didnt tell my sister, because I thought I would figure it out somehow. Since she didnt ask in the past few weeks, I thought I had managed to avoid it.
Well today she asked and in a panic, I said the exam was in a week. In actuality its tomorrow, but I cant sign up anymore and I wouldnt pass anyway. She again said very clearly that condition for living there is that I pass the exam and now I dont know what to do, because I cant tell her now and I cant produce a result out of thin air. I dont know what to do. If I have to move back to my parents, I'll just get worse.

tl;dr I moved in with my sister on the condition of passing an exam and now I've failed the chance to even write it and I might have to move out

2023.03.30 18:52 Dragonmystic Manual of Exalted Power: Memorials. (Very, very early sketches and notes)

It's still early on, but I wanted to share that I am starting back up on trying to write the Memorial Exalted. I'm starting from a more solid, cohesive root than the attempt from a while ago.
Right now I'm just sketching out their place in the world, history, and what sort of play experiences and mechanics I would expect out of them.
It's only 6 pages right now, but here's the TLDR:

2023.03.30 18:52 Formal-Mud-990 For what it's worth this is the proof for later when some try to say I didn't try

Misinform comes in all shapes and sizes. To all degrees and extents. In ever form and fashion's conceivable. Only as limited as the limitless stretch of human imagination. I strongly encourage to do google checks on any and indeed all if you can manage the parts of this you don't understand or believe to be correct. I challenge you to prove it wrong with reliable and trustworthy sources. If I am wrong then you proved it. An only time was lost. If I'm right . Then it is your future loved ones who are yet to be born that are lost. If that seems worth checking into then I say do it.
As a life long Minnesota home grown individual. I tend to believe as a whole MN is better . Better then those who will blindly follow without doing the due diligence of staying the course when necessary and going around when need arise. Maybe I'm wrong there too huh?
Earl Miller along with alot of original top level of various positions like head of marketing, the guy who made the thumbs up like icon on face book is a specific example for instance, all agree on attention grabbing tactics being used to work for the interest of someone rich. Misinformation comes in all shapes and sizes. all Forms and fashions. To all conceivable degrees and extents. As countless and limitless as the ppls own personal perspectives allows them. It can be on purpose on accident. For fun for harm and even just for the fuck of it. This is a problem for us all that can only get worse the longer it goes unaddressed. Trickle down economics: Reaganomics as it's sometimes referred to as. The only responsibility of the corporation is that of the fiduciary responsibility to it's stock holders even at the expense of the stake holders, at the expense of the environment, and community. this is not the solution it is in fact the problem. It is the reason for 90% of the suffering by the 99% less rich then the top 1% of wealth holders. If I create money in my home it is considered bad counterfeit and illegal. When businesses do this with no money it is called " cooking the books" Also illegal. When private and commercial banks do it it is legal, and when you continue to allow fraud to remain legalized it creates a lot of problems that can have nothing done against them. In 1971 Nixon takes America off the gold standard system replaced with the FIAT system. Fiat is Latin for let it be so by the way. Only governments can make a Fiat currency. And only banks can create by lending. Central banks lend to investment banks , who lend to commercial banks,who lend to top corporations who go to giant govt contractors who then finally lend to borrowers. It was in 1932 that the glass steagall act was passed to help oppose this. Yet in 1999 treasury's Secretary at the time Larry summers as well as his predecessor Robert Rubin repealed this glass steagall act. Then congressman Hank Paulson more or less said if you don't bail is banks out for letting this problem occur via these methods ever citizens bank account emptys and they revolt and you lose so do what you got to make it borrow it whatever we need a 700 billion dollar bail out now. This is how along with Allen Greenspan's timely encouraging you get inflation and insurance causing subprime housing crises. The FED is the lobbyist for the commercial banking system. Plutocracy is government by the rich. Goldman Sachs uses money to buy influence in Congress to pass laws to make it easier to make money on wall street to buy more influence in Congress....one of the most influential investment banks of the world in Sept 2008, just about one month before the stock market crashed conveniently changed it's banking status from investment to commercial,this made it eligible for state protection. It was in ancient Greece that Pluto stated it should never be more then six to one ratio in financial pay between the highest and lowest paid position. It wasn't until 1923 that J.P Morgan said it was actually 20:1 as optimal difference. I'm sure him being a banker is just coincidence. Now just 100 years later it is sometimes 500:1 even 1000:1 and when the income inequality is in a ratio of 500 to 1 the whole concept of living may as well be between two different species. The difference in economy ideals the ways of living all together. The ranges of disparity is in entirely different brackets. One never seeing even the best of the worst of the other in any circumstances. There can be no sense of community's if there is no common ground on which to live next to one another. It takes good communities to raise good kids teaching them in good schools without biases and agendas other then that of allowing the next generation to be the most capable and competent when the time comes to pass the torch as no one can hold it up forever no matter how strong it must be passed. Human beings right now at this moment are acting to accelerate if not make it a certainty the lives of our grandchildren will be worsening. More world wide famine disease and war. All creating more death . We all follow suit unquestionably due to the slavery of greed stemmed from this income inequalities. We do this even though we all love our grand kids when over a time any system is built to create laws for legalization and moral codes for the justifying these walks of life. We do I think deserve to be walked on by them. For if that is not so then it is equally as not so possible for us to rise together for the future of mankind. Truly then and only then will the systemic changes necessary for elimination of the evils allowing this way of life. The American declaration of independence states the following in it's article 11 but for those saying I take what I want out of context to suit my own ends...yes that is correct. I would encourage all to go when able and read the thing in it's entirety to see the context for themselves. --" All experience has shown that mankind is more disposed to suffer- Whilst evils are sufferable- then to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed."-- American declaration of independence --"God made all men equal and gave them the rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit to happiness. That to secure these rights governments are instituted amongst men deriving there just powers from the consent of governed. That when any form of government becomes destructive of these ends.

Systemic Changes During Economic Downturns:
Increase in unemployment rates Decrease in consumer spending Increase in government spending on social welfare programs Decrease in government tax revenues Decrease in corporate profits Increase in business bankruptcies and closures Increase in foreclosure rates and home price declines Decrease in GDP growth Increase in government debt levels Increase in poverty rates Increase in income inequality Controversial policy's passing congress during economic downturns:
Economic stimulus packages Unemployment benefit extensions Bailouts for specific industries Changes to tax policy Changes to regulations on financial institutions Infrastructure spending Presidential remarks during economic downturns:
Calls for bipartisan cooperation to address the economic crisis Promises to create jobs and stimulate economic growth Urges for increased government spending on social welfare programs Proposals for tax cuts or other measures to spur economic activity Systemic Changes During Economic Upswings:
Decrease in unemployment rates Increase in consumer spending Increase in government tax revenues Increase in corporate profits Decrease in business bankruptcies and closures Increase in home prices and decreases in foreclosure rates Increase in GDP growth Decrease in government debt levels Decrease in poverty rates Decrease in income inequality Controversial policy's passing congress during economic upswings:
Tax cuts Deregulation of industries Changes to government spending priorities Infrastructure spending Presidential remarks during economic upswings:
Claims credit for economic growth and job creation Proposes tax cuts or other measures to continue economic growth Promises to maintain fiscal responsibility and decrease government debt levels Many of these systemic changes have persisted from their time of origin to present day, although the specifics may vary depending on the time period and the context. For example, government spending on social welfare programs tends to increase during economic downturns and decrease during economic upswings, but the specific programs and amounts of funding may change over time. Similarly, tax policy changes and deregulation can have long-lasting impacts on the economy, but the specific policies and their effects will depend on the political and economic context. Other systemic changes, such as changes in unemployment rates, GDP growth, and income inequality, may be more cyclical and subject to fluctuations over time. However, even these changes can be influenced by long-term factors such as technological innovation, demographic shifts, and globalization. George Washington, who warned against the dangers of political factions and the concentration of power in his farewell address. Abraham Lincoln, who famously described democracy as "government of the people, by the people, for the people" in his Gettysburg Address. Franklin D. Roosevelt, who championed the New Deal as a way to restore economic power to ordinary Americans and protect them against the excesses of the wealthy and powerful. Lyndon B. Johnson, who declared a "war on poverty" and passed legislation like the Voting Rights Act and the Civil Rights Act to promote greater equality and fairness in society. Barack Obama, who frequently spoke out against income inequality and the influence of big money in politics, and who warned of the dangers of authoritarianism and polarization in his farewell address. Dwight D. Eisenhower, who warned against the dangers of the military-industrial complex and emphasized the need for balance between national security and civil liberties. Ronald Reagan, who championed conservative principles such as free market capitalism and individual liberty, but who also spoke out against government corruption and waste, and who signed into law the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986, which granted amnesty to millions of undocumented immigrants George H.W. Bush, who championed a "kinder, gentler" conservatism and who signed into law the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibited discrimination against individuals with disabilities
Gerald Ford, who emphasized the need for transparency and accountability in government and who sought to heal divisions in the wake of the Watergate scandal Richard Nixon, who championed conservative policies such as law and order and the war on drugs, but who also signed into law important environmental and workplace safety legislation, and who famously declared in his second inaugural address that "we cannot learn from one another until we stop shouting at one another" John Quincy Adams, who spoke out against slavery and who called for greater investment in education and science, and who famously declared that "if your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." James Madison, who helped draft the U.S. Constitution and who championed principles such as federalism and separation of powers, and who famously declared in Federalist No. 10 that a well-constructed government can control the effects of factions and prevent them from undermining democracy. Thomas Jefferson, who championed democratic principles such as individual liberty, religious freedom, and popular sovereignty, and who famously declared in the Declaration of Independence that "all men are created equal."
Andrew Jackson, who championed the interests of the common man and who fought against the power of entrenched elites, but who also faced criticism for his treatment of Native Americans and his expansion of executive power Franklin Pierce, who emphasized the importance of compromise and reconciliation in the face of political divisions, but who also faced criticism for his support of pro-slavery policies and his handling of the issue of states' rights James K. Polk, who presided over a period of territorial expansion and economic growth, but who also faced criticism for his aggressive foreign policy and his handling of the issue of slavery in the territories James Monroe, who championed the principles of nationalism and self-determination, and who famously declared in his Monroe Doctrine that the United States would not tolerate European interference in the affairs of the Western Hemisphere John Adams, who helped draft the Declaration of Independence and who emphasized the importance of civic virtue and education in maintaining a healthy democracy, but who also faced criticism for his handling of the issue of free speech during the Alien and Sedition Acts. Again, as we go further back in history, the language and context of presidential speeches may differ from what we are accustomed to today, but many of the underlying principles and ideals remain relevant and important.
Martin Van Buren, who championed the principles of limited government and individual liberty, and who emphasized the importance of protecting the rights of minorities and marginalized groups William Henry Harrison, who emphasized the importance of public service and civic responsibility, and who called for greater investment in infrastructure and public works projects James Buchanan, who emphasized the importance of preserving the Union and upholding the Constitution, but who also faced criticism for his handling of the issue of slavery and his failure to prevent the outbreak of the Civil War Millard Fillmore, who championed the principles of free trade and religious tolerance, and who signed into law the Compromise of 1850, which sought to resolve the issue of slavery in the territories Zachary Taylor, who emphasized the importance of national unity and the preservation of the Union, and who faced criticism for his handling of the issue of states' rights and his failure to prevent the outbreak of the Civil War.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, who championed the principles of social justice and economic equality, and who led the country through the Great Depression and World War II, and who famously declared in his first inaugural address that "the only thing we have to fear is fear itself" Harry S. Truman, who emphasized the importance of international cooperation and who oversaw the establishment of the United Nations and the Marshall Plan, but who also faced criticism for his handling of the issue of civil rights and his decision to drop atomic bombs on Japan Dwight D. Eisenhower, who championed the principles of national security and economic growth, and who oversaw the construction of the interstate highway system and the launch of the space race, but who also faced criticism for his handling of the issue of civil rights and his reluctance to push for greater social and economic reforms John F. Kennedy, who emphasized the importance of civil rights and social justice, and who led the country through the Cuban Missile Crisis and the early years of the Cold War, but who also faced criticism for his handling of the Bay of Pigs invasion and his personal life and character Lyndon B. Johnson, who championed the principles of civil rights and social welfare, and who oversaw the passage of important legislation such as the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act, but who also faced criticism for his handling of the Vietnam War and his expansion of the federal government's role in domestic affairs. Again, these examples span a wide range of historical eras and political contexts, but they all demonstrate the ways in which presidential speeches and policies can have a lasting impact on American society and its political and economic systems.
On how Presidential speeches and policies can have a significant impact on American society id point to the following.
Presidential speeches can inspire and mobilize the public to support certain policy initiatives or social movements. For instance, Franklin D. Roosevelt's famous Fireside Chats during the Great Depression helped to restore confidence in the government and laid the groundwork for the New Deal, while John F. Kennedy's call to "ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country" inspired a generation of Americans to volunteer and engage in public service.
Presidential policies can have far-reaching effects on the economy, including on employment, wages, and the distribution of wealth. For example, Ronald Reagan's policies of deregulation and tax cuts in the 1980s helped to stimulate economic growth and job creation, but also led to rising income inequality and a decline in union membership. Similarly, Barack Obama's stimulus package and health care reform efforts in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis helped to stabilize the economy and expand access to health care, but also faced criticism for their cost and potential long-term effects.
Presidential speeches and policies can also shape the country's political and social structures, including issues such as civil rights, immigration, and foreign policy. For example, Lyndon B. Johnson's support for the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act helped to dismantle legal segregation and expand voting rights for African Americans, while Donald Trump's policies on immigration and trade reshaped the country's relationship with its neighbors and with the world.
And while arguably at worst and debatable at best I'd summarize it by way of how It's difficult to quantify exactly how many presidential speeches and policies have lasting effects to the present day, as the impact of a given speech or policy can depend on a wide range of factors, including historical context, political opposition, and implementation challenges. However, it's safe to say that many of the examples we've discussed earlier in this conversation have had a significant and lasting impact on American society and its political and economic structures. For instance:
The New Deal programs and reforms initiated by Franklin D. Roosevelt during the Great Depression continue to shape the country's social safety net and regulatory framework, with programs like Social Security and the National Labor Relations Act still in place today.
The civil rights legislation passed during the 1960s, including the Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act, helped to dismantle legal segregation and expand voting rights for African Americans, although issues of racial inequality and discrimination persist to this day.
The deregulation and tax cuts implemented during the Reagan era continue to shape the country's economic policies and debates, with questions about the role of government in the economy and the distribution of wealth remaining hotly contested.
The health care reform efforts of the Obama administration, including the Affordable Care Act, have had a lasting impact on the country's health care system and access to care, although challenges to its implementation and ongoing political opposition continue to shape the debate.
These are just a few examples, but they demonstrate how presidential speeches and policies can have a lasting impact on American society and its political and economic structures.
The Marshall Plan, proposed by Harry Truman in 1947, helped to rebuild Europe after World War II and cemented the United States' role as a global superpower.
The War on Poverty and Great Society programs, initiated by Lyndon B. Johnson in the 1960s, helped to reduce poverty and expand access to education and health care for millions of Americans, although issues of poverty and inequality remain a challenge today.
The Clean Air Act and Clean Water Act, passed under Richard Nixon in the 1970s, helped to protect the environment and improve public health, although debates over environmental regulation and climate change continue to be major issues today.
The Americans with Disabilities Act, signed into law by George H.W. Bush in 1990, helped to expand access and opportunities for people with disabilities, although challenges to implementation and ongoing debates over disability rights and accommodations remain.
1987 CDC knew how and who aids would most likely effect and harm. Instead of being helpful and precise a fear campaign was launched. " Aids will explode into the hetero sexual community." , So instead a lot of in reality not even needed but now clogging the lines for those who do from being tested, Was said on commercials to the public at large. Just like covid is not Russian roulette, and of course technically anything can kill anyone or anything else at any time, yea sure it's not wrong. That is the just the law of the universe and as such it applies at all times to all things regardless of gender , race economic status , or personal preference of the plethora of human enjoyments practiced throughout the ages. As of may 2021 according to the CDC 75% of covid deaths are 65 years or older in America. 98-99% of those are unvaccinated.
So if if your 65 years old or older and not vaccinated don't go crowd surfing at a concert or you will probably be a goner.
The easy said an not implemented as easy as said I get that but none the less a fact for it Solution here is simply put help the most vulnerable after discovery of who that is and how to do so. Not to panic into a pandemic Robbing kids of education and sanity via stupid ,pointless , unhelpful, horrible means. Just to parade them around like masked bandits is both as ironic as it is ignorant. And what the whole world was doing not so long ago.when the same people in private health care, who are the very ones always saying to go get a second opinion, want to allow only one in the public debate you have problems. Problems including but not limited too Countless prescriptions labeled effective, safe , now giving out lawsuits for those who took them.

2023.03.30 18:51 leonaidon Capybara FBI

In the dark and mysterious forests of Brazil, there was a capybara named Max who worked for the Federal Bureau of Rodentia (FBR). Max was a master of the water gun, and he was known for his precision and accuracy when taking down the most dangerous animal criminals.
One day, Max received a mission from the FBR that was unlike any he had ever encountered before. A group of jaguars and tigers had stolen a priceless artifact from a museum, and they were holding it deep in the jungle. But the twist was that they had surrounded themselves with a ring of deadly snakes, making it nearly impossible for anyone to get close to them.
Max knew he had to use all of his skills to complete this mission. He gathered his gear - a water gun loaded with a special blend of water and chilli oil, a pair of night-vision goggles, and a pouch of snakes. He set out into the forest, his heart racing with excitement and fear.
As Max approached the jaguar and tiger hideout, he could hear the hiss and rattle of the snakes. But Max was undaunted - he knew he had to think outside the box to complete this mission.
Max quickly sprayed the snakes with his water gun, causing them to flee in terror. He then reached into his pouch of snakes and began throwing them at the jaguars and tigers, causing chaos and confusion.
With the jaguars and tigers distracted, Max charged forward, his water gun blazing. He dodged their attacks and fired his water gun with deadly accuracy, hitting them with the chilli oil mixture and taking them down one by one.
Finally, Max reached the stolen artifact. He carefully picked it up and made his way out of the hideout, dodging the last of the snakes that tried to stop him.
As Max emerged from the jungle, he was greeted by the cheers of his fellow FBR agents. They congratulated him on a job well done, and Max smiled, knowing that he had once again proven himself as the greatest capybara agent in all of Brazil.

2023.03.30 18:50 JonathanBricklin Osho as Reader

[I posted the following on Quora as a response to Osho's "sources of inspiration". But I would love to hear feedback from those who, like me, fullly acknowledge his enlightenment, or those who thinkof him as justva rascal.]
Osho was a voracious reader his entire life (if somewhat shy of the “hundreds of thousands of books” that his disciple and editor Anand Mayapa has attributed to him having read). And Osho's own 647 books—all transcriptions from his Talks—align with the most profound insights of many realized masters. But the source of his primal insight, like the Buddha's, was not his encounter with anyone else's writings or presence. It was his own ongoing enlightenment experience that lead him to his core teaching:
whatever is, is, and each moment of perceived isness emerges from an unascertainable abyss.
In the myriad online videos, you can see him emerging from this unfathomable source, moment by blissful moment.
Although Osho's core teaching was not inspired by anyone, a lifetime of voracious reading found resonance with enlightened perspectives from a vast array of sources, covering a wide range of genres, from the Dao De Jing to Jonathan Living Seagull. Sometimes, he would find only a few lines to share, or even just one line, as with the Talmud's “God is not your uncle.” But texts reflecting his own enlightenment experience were commented on in full and exquisite detail. Two such texts that he said had particularly special resonance for him were the Isha Upanishad and Zen patriarch Sosan's Hsin Hsin Ming.
Osho summarized his reading life during experimental nitrous oxide sessions. The transcribed result—Books That I Have Loved—is a fascinating, ever-shifting, hierarchy of books that had meant the most to him. The nitrous oxide surely accounts for the perpetual reshuffling of so many “most beloved” books—books that he relates with the fervor of an intoxicant. He is most sober, tho, in his discriminating between which authors he believes are themselves enlightened and which are not. Of his near contemporaries, Gurdjieff gets his most respect, and also seems to have been a post-enlightenment inspiration as a rascal guru.
Though Osho mostly reserves his highest praise for enlightened, Eastern authors, he has ecstatic enthusiasm for Western authors as well, and not just the ones he considers enlightened--like Pythagoras and Heraclitus—but also the “near enlightened,” like Nietzsche, Kazantzakis, and Alan Watts. He is particularly enthusiastic about the French psychologist Hubert Benoit, and Tolstoy.
Of Benoit's Let Go he said:
"It should be on the bookshelf of every meditator. Nobody has written so scientifically and yet so poetically. It is a contradiction, but he has managed it. Hubert Benoit's Let Go is the best that has come out of the modern western world. It is the best book of the century as far as the West is concerned.”
And he offers up equal enthusiasm for Tolstoy's Resurrection, which he claimed “has been a bible to me.” Tolstoy is one of Osho's spiritual, but not enlightened, geniuses. Osho effusively praises War and Peace and Ana Karenina, but it was Tolstoy's lesser known Resurrection that he not only read many times, but carried around with him day after day like the “bible” he felt it to be, saying, “The four gospels…miss the the whole spirit of Jesus. Ressurection is far better.”
What is somehat ironic, tho, about Osho's comparative dismissal of the Gospels here is not only that Tolstoy begins the book with 4 quotations from them, but that the last of them, from Luke, may well convey the most relevant inspiration for Osho’s former, current, and future disciples:
“The disciple is not above his master: but every one that is perfect shall be as his master. “

2023.03.30 18:49 pedrob_d People are missing the point of the respec system

Too many voices here complaining about the respec system, and many of which think it is just an arbitrary annoyance. It is not. This post is meant to be a voice contrary to those.
1- Respec cost makes choices meaningful without punishing experimentation.
It is cheap to change your character build early on as you are starting and exploring spells. It is also ok to correct small mistakes. Only when the character becomes more developed then respecing is more and more expensive.
You are acting like choices are irreversible from lvl 1 like diablo 2 was and like D4 developers did not think about experimentation at all. This is a well thought system with scalling, and that NEVER makes repcing IMPOSSIBLE, just expensive.
that is not extreme like D2 (which we can all agree sucks!!) When you get a better torch you have to reroll the same character so you put 2 less points in strength or whatever.
Meaningful choice is very very important for any RPG. Makes you think harder about what you want to do exactly as you worked hard for that extra skill point.
2-It adds to the RPG side of ARPG - roleplay
If you ever played a game like D&D or any other RPG, you would understand that build and skills are obsoletely integral to a character identity.
I don't remember my past characters I played in my D&D game with my friends as "the fighter I played" It was the "Arduim, the human fighter who was a bow specialist/ archer and who was really good at hitting things"
Similarly when it comes to Diablo, I like the idea that my Rogue called "Kojer" is a melee specialist, or that my barbarian called "Bull" is a Frenzy axe wielder. If I get tired from playing Axe frenzy, and suddenly feel like playing a WW barb, I just roll a new character. Different name, different physical customizations, different builds, different "personality" - different CHARACTER. You get it.
I am probably TOO extreme in the sense that I will make decisions considering role play in detriment of game play. For example, "Touro", my frenzy barb in D2 I have had for 10+ years in my single player save, only repairs his equipment in ACT 5 because he only trusts barbarian smiths. Dumb? Yes. But I think it is fun to do some roleplaying.
3- It makes "sub class" specialization as meaningful as new classes.
I don't see you complaining when you have to level up a new class character. You started the game as a barbarian, but now you feel like playing a build that happens to be based on the rogue. Well, you will roll a new character that is a rogue, right?
In this system, if you want to play a different build within the same class, you might consider also rerolling the character. Therefore, the respec system means that "sub classes" or builds gain the same meaning as entire different classes.
I mean, I could take the "free respec" argument to an extreme and say any individual Character should be able to change classes at any point as well, right? You could have a single character that can change class AND build whenever they want. That is too extreme, isn't it?
4- Add one more side to replayability
What if the game is THAT GOOD what you want to play through the story again? Well, making a new character is a perfect excuse for that.
After all you are playing the game to have fun. If you are reluctant to just REPLAY the game, honestly, you have to do some thinking if you are actually having fun with this hobby or if you are just addicted.
So you don't say I am an extremist, let me end on a valid criticism to the system
5- If you start a fresh character undecided on the build and make it up depending on which legendary items you get , the system will punish you.
Because items make or break builds, you will want to change builds after you drop a cool unique for a specific skill, and the system will punish you.
This makes SOME sense in that its one game system going against another. However I will just say this is why you have a stash!! Save the cool items you find along the way, think of cool builds you can make around them, and try a new character in the future for that purpose. Why not?
Or if you don't feel like it at all, pay the expensive respec and just change it, YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO.
Anyways, my point is that the current system is robust and very well crafted with reason. This is just my point of view. Peace and respect above all.

2023.03.30 18:49 Altie-McAltface If you think having ADHD is bad, having ADHD on top of being blind is even worse

I can lose things literally right in front of me. A common scenario when I'm getting ready leave the house: I'll take my guide dog's harness off the peg it hangs on and put it somewhere next to the front door. Then I'll call my dog over and clip on his leash. I'll look for his harness on the peg because I forgot that I took it off less than 10 seconds ago. I'll look in random places nearby, then start panicking because I'm not checking the chair next to the door or the foot of the stairs. This whole time the harness, which has a fluorescent yellow sign and retroreflective tape on it, is sitting in plain sight.
I can't count how many times I've lost my phone. I finally wised up and got a bright colored case for it, which has helped a little bit.
I'll also be holding onto an object, getting ready to put it away. I'll tell myself, sometimes out loud, that I'm going to put it in a specific spot where it won't get moved. I'll remember that I put it away, but I'll forget where I put it, and again, its usually out in the open.
Sometimes I'll lose something, try to find it, get frustrated, buy another one, feel guilty that I've wasted my money, then find the original one. Even worse if the original was where it was "supposed" to be the whole time and I didn't find it even after searching the area multiple times. This recently happened with a keycap puller I put away in a specific drawer. When my frustration started mounting upon not finding it, I started repeating this madness mantra "I don't want to buy another one, I don't want to buy another one, I don't want to buy another one..." Of course it was in the drawer the whole time. The transparent, plastic, and relatively empty drawer that was easily accessible.
Another big one is water cups. I'll take a cup from the cupboard, use it to drink water from the fridge, then set the brightly colored cup on the white quartz countertop with the intention of reusing it for future hydrations. Later I'll enter the kitchen, look for the cup, not find it, and get another one. Repeat the process until there are 3 or 4 cups on the counter. Sometimes I'll see the cup but forget it's mine and get a clean one anyway so as not to drink from someone else's cup.
Basically if the object isn't in physical contact with my body, it's pretty much lost. And sometimes even when it is. I spent 5 minutes in the back of a cab in a panic looking for my expensive specialized sunglasses, only to find them hanging on my collar.
A lot of the coping strategies for ADHD rely on being able see things, like quickly taking notes or writing labels on containers. I've partially solved the label issue by using containers that are bright solid colors. The colors don't necessarily have to mean anything, but it's easier to find the red drawer below the pink drawer and above the orange drawer, vs tying to find the otherwise identical drawer labeled "USB cables". It also helps that I really like that 90s aesthetic of colored translucent plastic.
I'm lucky enough to be employed (which is rare for blind people) and have a pretty laid back job. It doesn't pay well enough for me to move out of my parents' house though, and both my mom and my dad likely have undiagnosed ADHD, which is a whole other can of worms.

2023.03.30 18:49 Miregali How about an ARK Battle Royale (Hear me out)

What if there was a Game mode with a custom map with different Buildings and monuments, you wouldn't be able to farm resources other than food but you could still craft anything from the stuff you find. You could be able to raid outposts for access to advanced weaponry or defeat small bosses for access to some Tek stuff. you could only tame up to five tames and you couldn't tame everything, taming would also work more like Passive taming. Eventually you could tame ,,Big Ones" like a Charcharodontosaurus , a Quetzalcoatlus Northropi you could deck out, a Giganotosaurus Carolini, a Spinosaurus Aegyptus or a Wyvern. The Dinosaurs would also be switched up and more realisticly sized, the Tyrannosaurus Rex would act like a Giga except it's immortal (Yes). There would be no special Blueprints and you could craft ammo very easily (otherwise it would be kinda hard). Instead of a Zone every living Players location would be revealed every Day and night circle (wich is alot shorter). Survivors would also have to worry several Events such as Heatwaves or storms wich would force them to either find bases or build them themselves. Survivors could team up in groups up to three mid game if they can peacefully cooperate, but knowing the average PvP player we can be honest and with certainty say that will happen like fucking never lol. I know my recent ARK says that I am very shitty at this game wich I am lol, but I simply had this idea lol.
Also what are the snail games lol

2023.03.30 18:48 soayherder Brain flaring anxiety over kids and school

My oldest is speech delayed but a combination of private speech therapy and special ed services (with IEP) have been doing wonders for helping him catch up. Unfortunately, his behavior is not catching up as fast as the rest of him. I'm trying to keep reminding myself that he has had a LOT of new stuff pitched at him in a very short amount of time and in that context it's really not that bad.
But, I started trying to take all three of them to cub scouts (four year old twins and oldest, who's six) and while the twins are getting the hang of it and participating very quickly - we've attended twice so far - last night I had to chase the oldest around the scout hall constantly, including collaring him multiple times because despite being told not to, he kept trying to go outside by himself. He is SO disruptive. Not breaking stuff, not actively malicious, he just wants to do what he wants to do and currently doesn't care how that affects anything or anyone around him.
This means things like spinning in circles and running around during the flag ceremonies. Opening the bottom of a connect-four board to dump the pieces out in the middle of other kids' game. Not participating in duck-duck-goose so that I pulled him out of the circle but when his little brother was running as the goose, jumping in and jumping on the kid who goosed him. Not violently, nobody was hurt (and the kid in question was 14, thank god) but at the same time...
...I am just SO EMBARRASSED and struggling with my feelings and my frustration. On the one hand, making it very clear to him that this is NOT OKAY, on the other hand, trying to be compassionate because it's all so new to him, we just started kindergarten in February and that's not a long time.
But also? He still isn't potty trained despite my efforts. His teacher told me the other day, 'he tells us, "I don't wear underpants, I change my own pull-ups!" when he goes to the bathroom'. Very confident and almost bragging. Which a) is news to me since at home he still wants ME to wipe his butt, and b) proves to me that he KNOWS what the expectations are and is choosing to try to pursue his own course.
All this is weighing heavily on my mind so last night I emailed his speech therapist and his teacher to ask about OT services to work hard on getting him caught up on following the social expectations because I don't want him going into first grade as a sort of lame 'separate-but-equal' situation. It hurts my heart so much.
And to top it off, this morning I got pulled aside in the school parking lot and politely asked to slow down when turning into the pre-k/k parking lot. They were nice about it but of course asked who my kids are so on top of everything else now my brain is flashing neon signs that there's going to be a note in a file and a strike against me somehow which will affect how the kids are regarded. I just need someone to tell me it's going to be okay. I can't talk to my husband about this because he will not understand why I'm so upset since I'm doing everything I can to get oldest the help he needs. (When we talked about it last night he started trying to tell me we should pull him out of school and homeschool him again - which DIDN'T WORK THE FIRST TIME and is why we have the setup we have now, AND it fell almost entirely on me the first time as it was.)
This is on top of some major medical and other life stress and my mom being out of the country for two weeks in a conflict zone right now. I'm overwhelmed and struggling.

2023.03.30 18:46 terribleheadspace 24 F / Looking for (female) friends to VC with

Hello, makenewfriendshere. We meet again. I am once again asking for friends. This time, I'm looking to find voice chat friends to foolishly be socially awkward with. And to play chess with. If you're into that, send me your discord tag and let's link up. Just tell me a little bit about yourself first. I prefer chit chatting w other women since I don't really feel comfortable 1o1 with guys online, but I will try to be open (butttt im sorry but one creepy, misogynistic, or homophobic thing and i will scadodoole, im not playing)
Besides chess, I have a graveyard of other hobbies: I dabbled into writing, & stories about sentient toilet papers were written (thank you, writingprompts). I drew cats from memes, I had a readathon mania when i discovered zlib years ago, designed fake book covers that no one asked for, made some music, i even dipped my tongue into new languages. All have been abandoned eons ago in liu of depression.
Then the xqc v. Moistcritikal chess match happened and my mind has been reopened. I have found a new joy in living and losing miserably at.
I like horror and psychological thrillers books and movies, but I've substituted that with air crash investigations and whatever Shawn Cee reacts to that I can find on YouTube. That's the extent of my films and shows, lol.
Music: currently my focus is on exploring hip hop/rap, I'm very new to the genre. But my fav artists are kendrick lamar, little simz, leikeli47, tierra whack. Favourite album of 2022 is: Renaissance or Mr Morale, I can't pick.
Before my hip hop phase I was a twenty one pilots, Melanie Martinez, half alive & KKB type of person. I also like LoL's K/DA if that counts.
Games: none but among us and chess and i suck at both🤙🏾
I'm very very socially awkward and I'm just trying to learn how to conversate. I'm not as expressive on VC but I try to be. If that doesn't bother you, shoot me a message.
BTW I AM QUEELGBTQ+, just in case. If you're homophobic or disrespectful please don't contact me. Just trynna keep away from any awkwardness. Also, no NSFW. Also, final thing: I can't see chat requests, please PM me instead!!
Thank you and have a cool day. Stream RENAISSANCE by Beyonce

2023.03.30 18:45 DaylightChampion WMD (Weapons of Minimal Destruction)

Admiral Demeton "report."
Vice Admiral Ek'sulud "the escort has fallen for the decoy. Our 'fleet' of condemned vessels is leading them away from the convoy ships, which have now gathered within a '10,000 miles' (units adjusted) radius... though it appears one vessel has remained in the escort formation... I already have firing crews prepared to launch a stealth missile at the remaining escort. We're ready to engage and capture the convoy on your command, Admiral."
Admiral Demeton "... which vessel remained in formation? Is it the Hive Ship 'Armageddon'? That was the only ship we needed to lure away."
Ek'sulud "no, sir. HS Armageddon was the first to chase the decoy fleet. The facades on the condemned fleet were immaculate, and the enemy forces are convinced that they are striking a crippling blow."
Demeton "then what vessel?"
VA Ek'sulud "we've gathered all the intel available, and it appears to be a... human 'destroyer'. Not much intel to be had on such a novel race. It's an angular, 'dinghy' of a war ship. It appears to have no weapons aside from point defense, but it is classified as a 'destroyer'. Our analysts suspect that this 'destroyer' has a singular cannon hidden at the nose, powerful enough to 'destroy' a ship with a single blast."
"Regardless, its engines are exposed and a single stealth missile should cripple it, stopping it from turning that cannon on our fleet. I advise we act IMMEDIATELY Admiral. Time is of the essence if we want to take the convoy hostage. The facade fleet won't hold up to much more scrutiny."
Demeton "...I ... well ... Engage."
The stealth missile flew, invisible. The fleet followed it, almost equally invisible. With a lead slowly growing to '50,000 miles' (units adjusted) the warhead glided silently to its appointment.
The engines of the human vessel blew out in a splendid geyser of plasma and molten metal. The strike was so precise that the vessel didn't rotate in any direction, completely dead in the water.
VA Ek'sulud "the human vessel is dead, Admiral. It can't turn its nose cannon towards us. Our forces have fanned out and will be boarding every enemy vessel shortly."
Demeton "excellent. We'll be able to fly this convoy home as our own, hostages on every ship to ensure our safety."
VA "Admiral, it appears the human vessel's reactor was struck as well. It's bursting with fire and beginning to spin violently- Admiral! Correction: the human vessel is launching a massive volley of missiles, and they are, somehow, homing in on our cloaked vessels!"
Demeton "point defenses are active?"
VA "yes, the first missiles will be intercepted in 5, 4, 3, 2-"
The maximum range of the attacking point defense was around "45 miles". The human retaliation began detonating "50 miles" off the stern of the attacking vessels. They shined with with the brilliance of stars. But the distance of detonation was too great to do any damage.
Every detonation was also accompanied by a jet of vaporized metal, shining with the brightness of a small nova. Reactive shields gave out immediately, and so did the engines and reactors of each ship.
Nuclear shaped charges. The efficient precision was chilling. A charge that wouldn't have begun to tax the ships' shields was completely gutting them. In fact, the entire volley delivered as a single payload wouldn't have been a threat to the flagship, but the battle was over in a single volley.
The Admiral numbly started searching through menus of ship files.
"Vice Admiral, prepare to send a report to the queens. This is a complete defeat."
The entire ship rocked and shook as its main engines and reactor vaporized. Main... didn't they still have enough power to attack? No. The rest of the fleet was gutted. One vessel having the strength to fight might give the impression they all did, putting lives at risk when there was no chance of victory.
VA Ek'sulud "... right away Admiral... Admiral? What are you looking for?"

2023.03.30 18:44 el__chico Some implant ideas

You know how in some sci fi games like cyberpunk or deus ex, you can buy an upgrade that will show you grenade trajectory prior to throwing? There should be an implant here that does the same, hold G and it will show you the arc and bounce. No i am not mad at baddies that frag their own team.
Besides this effect, it could also give you +1 grenades at rank 5, increasing the max count to 5 with bandolier, similar to how experimental stims let you carry one more.

Speaking of stims implant, what the f**k is it even supposed to do? You get 12 seconds of safe fall? Pff.

I get its niche but the effects are lackuster.
It should have a number of buffs and debuffs, making it more risky/interesting to use

20% small arms resistance
heavyweight+battle hardened
masks radar signature (even while running)
triggers response jacket (no need to take 1 hit)
8% increased fire rate (no bloom penalty)
1 sec reduced shield recharge
triggers spring step speed (firing will end it)
cloaks you for 2 sec (firing will end it)

puts you on fire for 12 seconds
tranqs you for 12 seconds (reduced moving speed)
fking blinds you lol

my idea of it is that it should give the same benefit as some implants (but not current ones which are terrible choices) without their associated debuff or trigger condition (ex 20% resist is conditional to revives or standing still, now can be bypassed) but mix in some debuffs to make it more risky

last idea would be to buff logistics specialist
-for vannies, harassers etc it stays the same
-for valks, sundies etc it will upgrade from squad spawn to platoon spawn
-MAYBE lets you (and only you) use non-squad but same platoon beacons to deploy

At the moment it brings no benefit for valks and galaxies as they have built in squad spawn

2023.03.30 18:43 emerald_tendrils How could I better handle this situation rather than bluntly refusing to see future MiL? 32f, 35m, getting married this summer.

Hi folks, I'm asking for advice here because my typically very opinionated mother is biting her tongue and AITA told me I wasn't allowed to post because of mentions of violence...
In short, my partner and I are getting married this summer after being together for 2.5 years. He is the sweetest, kindest man I know. He's a great partner and father to his daughter. We are choosing to elope for various reasons and we are doing it quite soon because we'd like to be married before TTC. 10yo daughter (50:50 custody) and I have a fantastic relationship but she is not joining us for our wedding for a few reasons (one being that she has multiple diagnoses which lead to very extreme behaviours at times, especially around big events and we decided we would like to have a special day where we weren't on edge). Because SD to be is not going to be at our wedding we are going to have a party afterwards to celebrate and give her an opportunity to get dressed up and be the centre of attention.
My partner has a strained relationship with his whole family. They are very much the type to fall out. His parents haven't spoken at all since they split suddenly when he was a teen. His brothers don't speak to his dad and periodically fall out with his mum. His mum doesn't speak to her sisters etc etc. In the time that we have been together, my partner has not once spoken to one brother and has spoken to the other twice - once because he had stolen money from their mum. The last time the three of them were together it erupted into violence with property damaged and everyone injured. We see both his parents regularly but he is not close to either. His mum cares for his daughter once or twice a week for a couple of hours after school. This is not a need for us but something my partner feels is nice for his mum as she does not work and doesn't have many friends.
I feel like this is a very cold summary but I'm trying not to write screeds...
Anyway, when we began planning our party we did not invite either of his brothers. They weren't even on the guest list. Before we sent out invitations I asked FH several times if there was anyone else he wanted to invite and he said no. I have four siblings who are all invited, plus partners and kids. We are all very close and spend long weekends together. They also love his daughter and include her in everything wherever possible. As a result the guest list is heavy on my family and his friends.
FH asked FMiL to please not tell his brothers about the party. He let them know we were engaged and that we were eloping and said he'd go with a drink after to celebrate. We also arranged to go for dinner with his dad another time. FMiL went out of her way to let the brothers know and they both sent him a barrage of abuse over "not being invited to his wedding." The next day she messaged to say unless we invited them she would also not attend. FH is obviously hurt by this and has said he's gutted that his only family will be his daughter. But he hasn't said that to her. He has said nothing to her aside from "ok." Since this, FH decided maybe he 'should' invite his brothers and they both told him to "fuck off". This wouldn't have been an issue if FMiL hadn't said anything.
This is where the advice needs to come in. FH has been continuing to have her pick SD up from school and then collecting her later. FMiL asked to keep having her. He has not said a single thing to her about the impact this has had on him. We have not had any pleasant wedding planning conversations in weeks and he even talked about cancelling the party. I told him I understand how he feels but that I'm really hurt that there is now no looking forward to us being married etc, but that he has not said anything to his mum about the hurt she has caused. I have been refusing to see her because I feel I can't act as though everything is fine but I also don't think it is my place to call her out. I feel like it's starting to drive a wedge between us. I want to be a supportive fiancee/wife but I also don't want to enable FMiL's shitty manipulative behaviour. Help?
TLDR: I'm refusing to see FMiL after she tried to manipulate us into invited FH's brothers to our reception despite them really not getting along. How can I better manage this?
