Thinking of going to Law School (Mid Life)

2023.06.02 12:26 rex9802 Thinking of going to Law School (Mid Life)

I am debating taking the plunge and going to Law School. Is it worth it? I am currently 42.
In college I was planning on attending law school but after a few years at my first job in the state legislature I grew tired of politics and it skewed my feelings. I then took a job with a real estate developer and pursued my MS. in real estate instead. Shortly after graduating with my masters (2008) I started (and sold) my own commercial construction but since then my career has not been what I’ve wanted it to be.
Recently I started another small construction company that is a one-man show doing a very specialized service, which I have gained notoriety for as doing this one specific thing extremely well. However, I am honestly not sure why I am a stand out person in this field because it is a VERY simple process and I fear my niche might get overcrowded in the future.
I have a wife and 3 kids under the age of 10. I currently earn $150k.
My decision to consider law school is because of career security, potential for higher salary and personal desire.
My personal desire comes from a few places.
I find law VERY interesting and I appreciate the intricacies found within the written law. I enjoy hearing about an issue and weighing the facts against case law to help determine the situation. I find real estate contracts and leases to be works of art and I’ve enjoyed writing them in the past 20 years as I’ve always managed various rental properties.
I am also up for a challenge. Since selling my company in 2015, I feel a void in my career where I am not striving for something exceptional. I do great work today but I kind of feel like I am in semi-retirement as I work some days 2 or 3 hours (I do work 6 days per week and have my share of 12 hour days).
Money (salary) is a concern for me as I make great money now but I am not sure of the longevity. I lost a bulk of my funds from my company sale on a business I tried to start a few years ago (I am an entrepreneur, this is the cost). But my concerns with law school tuition are low because I will only take the plunge if I am certain it will ultimately pay for itself (will it?).
I live outside of Baltimore, but after school would even consider a move to DC if there is a benefit in salary (which I am sure there is). I also have to consider my 3 kids (who will be starting college in 8 years and are currently enrolled in private school).
So- what do you think?

advice needed on purchasing a 991.1 garage queen
Currently hunting down 991.1’s for my first Porsche,
Found this car that was not listed in the marketplace but recommended from a friend that knows the owner.
991.1 Carrera S Year made 2015, purchased new in 2015. Mileage: ~7000 km ‘s
The owner of the car is the first owner.
Initially I was shocked with the mileage of an 8 year old car and many people said that Porsche’s are meant to be driven.
Any experiences from anyone here that bought a garage queen before?
Any advices for me on what to check or common things that needs to be replaced for an 8 year old 991.1?
Will view the car this Monday with the owner.

2023.06.02 08:28 Kaminoyousha Chapter 7 Bankruptcy (x2)

Hello, everyone. This is my very first time posting on reddit ever. I've been occasionally reading on here and I'm confident enough to talk about BK.
My husband and I filed Chapter 7 back on April 17, 2023 and received our discharge on July 29, 2015. I prepared the paperwork myself because we couldn't afford an attorney.
Now, here we are getting ready to file Chapter 7 again next week. I'll be preparing the documents again. Here's our issue.
We got evicted on May 1st of this year and had to move out on the 10th before the landlord could file for Writ of Possession.
My husband sold a big ticket item online for his manager on April 27th. From what I was told, the item would've retailed for $1,300, but it sold for $900 due to some blemishes. He gave his manager $600, keeping the remaining $300. We used that to get a moving truck, a storage unit and gas for my husband to get to and from work. I was wondering if I have to list that in my schedules, seeing that his boss kept 2/3 of the profit. I read that anything sold before filing BK must be disclosed. Could they go after his boss for the $600? Should we exempt the entire $900, even though my husband received $300 from the sale? The LAST thing I want to do is commit Bankruptcy Fraud, accidentally or otherwise.
My husband also sold out washer and dryer for food and gas money. They wouldn't benefit us any way because we're living in am extended stay, which is way more expensive than our old apartment (also, because the storage unit is not big enough).
We also know that we're surrendering the car that's up for repossession with less than $300 in equity
I never thought I'll be doing this again. I tried going back to work, but I'm physically disabled and finding it hard to hold down a job. I haven't worked on over five years.
Thanks for reading and I'm so sorry about my dissertation-like post. 😂
Thanks in advance for all your help and replies.

2023.06.02 05:07 Darkmatter36 Just a reminder to get out of your own a** sometimes and experiment (feat. Audeze LCD-3F 2015)

Ok so right now I am typing this out of my pure amazement and also realization of my own stupidity (exaggerating). Over the past few months I have been recklessly buying used high end headphones that pop up for good prices just for the new experiences. I've bought like 6 or so and now I have a really rad pair of Audeze LCD-3F's from 2015. I replaced their pads and headband earlier this week and have been listening daily after work.
I had heard so many nice things about these early fazor models, some people saying they're the best tuned cans Audeze's ever made. Well I really haven't been seeing that. These sound pretty good but the sound stage is isolated left and right while being distant and disjointed. Also it feels like the music is being forced into this oddly soft tonality that I really don't like, ruining the pacing and impact of some of my faster songs while somewhat improving the slow vocal tracks. All in all, I was ready to pack these up and list them for sale, until about 30 mins ago...
I realized that I had been running these balanced through my Questyle CMA400i and that historically it doesn't play well with the odd headphone while running balanced. So I plugged in my XLR adapter into the quarter inch port and started listening to them single ended.
"Wow, what?" was my first thought and I quickly realized that these are one of those headphones that prefer a single ended connection. IMMEDIATELY the sound stage stuck together, pushing everything in a 360 around my head and funneling strait into my ears. The bass exploded into pure bliss and the vocals fill the whole stage vs sounding distant and recessed before. Still wrapping my head around this sound and it's fantastic, super relaxing and so much resolution. I really don't know if it's the warmth of this class A amp or the single ended connection vs balanced that is causing this level of improvement for these headphones. I guess I will have to keep them permanently and test them with different amps in the future.
Some songs that I recently discovered and their issues I had heard running balanced:
Point being here is to experiment! Don't get stuck thinking X headphone sounds great this way so surely this is correct for Y headphone as well. This hobby proves to be so awesome and fulfilling, even after you think you've seen it all. Thanks for reading!

2023.06.02 00:35 Jelly_Mac 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport White

Looking for a diecast model of a white 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport to give as a gift to a friend who recently lost hers in a crash and was very attached to it. I am not familiar with diecast models but I am posting here in the hopes someone might have one they can sell or help me locate, since I have been searching online for days and am unable to find any active sales for this model. I am fine with smaller sizes and am not picky on the quality as this is more of a memento for her. This is from a long expired aliexpress listing and would have been perfect for me if it was still available.

2023.06.01 23:49 Beykid44 [Request] [XBOX] 10$ Xbox Gift Card (Asphalt 9 Legends)

Hey everyone! I'm u/Beykid44. I live in the U.S and I'm makin' a request. That request is for a 10$ Xbox Gift Card. I play on the xbox platform and I play ALOT of games, Mostly because of game pass I wouldn't have played any of the games I have without game pass. But there is one game that isn't on Game Pass. It's a free to play game called Asphalt 9. It's an Arcade Racer featuring all sorts of cars like the Acura NSX GT3 EVO Bugatti EB110 or the Lamborghini Miura Concept. I've loved the franchise since I've played the 2nd Installment on PlayStation Portable. but it's like Diablo immortal levels of pay to win. It's mechanics are easy to learn but hard to master. We like to use speed tricks. They are "Tricks" to make you go faster. There's also nitro like In every arcade racer. There 4 types of nitro Base Nitro, Imperfect Nitro, Perfect Nitro, and Nitro Shockwave. They all go the same speed. They're just used for different things.
Asphalt 9 is the first I've invested money in. Unfortunately I can't buy the Item I need right now as my dad won't buy it for as he currently doesn't have money. So I'm asking you generous people to buy me the daily events pass. Why do I want this? Well there's an event going on that requires alot of grinding. It's for a really cool car too! now it's not just for this car. The pass will last 14 days, so if I get it on Sunday I get a chance to get three very special cars! now I don't know what cars will be available after this week but leaks suggest the next 2 events will feature the Ferrari Monza SP1 and the Porsche Panamera 2 Very good cars.
I really hope someone accepts my request because it would suck if I couldn't get those sweet wheels xD.
My gamertag is here! https://xboxgamertag.com/search/HellRazer21781

2023.06.01 23:01 Agreeable-Elephant15 Richard Herring interviews Taskmaster people v3.0 - now with added Season 16 cast members!

Richard Herring interviews Taskmaster people - the full links (REVISED AND UPDATED)

📷
As regulars to this sub will know, I like to occasionally post up links to Richard Herring's Leicester Square Theatre interviews with Taskmaster people, and as the last interview from his spring recording block is now up on RHLSTP.co.uk and the contestants for Series 16 have now been announced, this felt like an apposite time to update.
ETA: I should add that any interview recorded after the guest's appearance on Taskmaster is highly likely to mention TM at some point, and after Rich's own appearance on it in 2020, that likelihood goes up from "highly" to "almost certainly". There may be some exceptions to this (I can't remember if it comes up in Sara Pascoe's most recent appearance),but Rich is a huge Taskmaster fan who also likes to talk about his own success on it.
(NOTE: Most Edinburgh Fringe recordings with a second performer on the bill, the second performer is doing stand-up; you can skip ahead to the relevant portion, but I don't think they're time coded, so it's trial and error).

2023.06.01 22:05 AromaticDelivery3314 I sometimes feel life is actively trying to stop me to study again...

Hello .. gusto ko lang iunload tong nararamdaman ko about life in general. Sorry in advance for the long post.
So a little backstory, I am 26M now turning 27, this year, I started going to college 2013 pa then i stopped coz I have to work for my family, then after that I've been constantly trying to get back to school but it just seems life is not allowing me. First attempt ko to go back was 2014 but unfortunately may nangyareng problem sa family ko kaya i have to use the money I saved up na para sana sa tuition, then 2nd attempt ko 2015, i thought mag technical school muna ako dahil eto na din ung panahon na iniimplement k-12 so natakot ako bumalik ng highschool, pero di ko den siya natapos dahil commission basis lang job ko nun and my sales weren't that good, so wala nanaman ako money to support myself. This sunk me into depression until i found a new job, naregular, kaya naglakas loob ule ako mag-aral noong 2018, this time bachelors degree na tlga but different program. But nawalan ako ng gana, i know this sounds my fault but let me explain. Yung mga professor ko kase hindi pumapasok and ako nagbabayad ng tuition ko nun so I feel di na worth it ituloy dahil halos wala den ako natututunan. Iba ang feeling kapag ikaw na ang nagpapa-aral sa sarili mo, every cent counts kse pinagpaguran mo yun e. So i stopped again ng 2019, coz i also got promoted so i thought to focus on my career first. Then the pandemic hit, and andami nang nangyare sa buhay ko...pero nandun pa din ung desire na makapag aral.
Fast forward sa ngayon, natuklasan ko tong compressed learning program ng CHED para makagraduate ka pa din with Bachelors using your experience sa work, so siempre natuwa ako na may gantong program. I was planning to go back this year sa school na gusto ko, naready ko na lahat ng requirements and all, tapos nalaman ko on hold applications nila. Why are you doing this to me life!
Now my wife gave me an option to either wait until open na ule sila for application or just go back to the traditional schooling na would take me 3-4 yrs sguro dahil ung natapos ko sa college noon old curriculum pa, unlike sa inaantay ko na possible 1 year lang. I dont know if my body can handle the student life while working kaya sobrang unfortunate. Ok naman ako sa job ko ngayon but having a degree would still give me an edge in the future. Im open for advice kung anu magandang gawin, salamat sa sasagot.
Also, para sa mga youngsters na sinusuportahan pa ng magulang nila, learn to appreciate the value of education tlga, mag-aral hangga't bata because in our country education is more of a privilege than a right. Just my advice.

2023.06.01 21:18 Devica9199 Pre-SAS Bath & Body Works Collection (w/ story lol)

Pre-SAS Bath & Body Works Collection (w/ story lol)
Happy June everyone! With SAS approaching and all of us sharing what our collections look like before (just missing 3 ffm’s from the recent sale that is in transit), I wanted to share mine as well. I still have a lot, but it used to be waaaay more (especially the ffm’s, was pushing towards 100). I’ve been decluttering the past few months and everything is kind of scattered in my tiny bedroom, bathroom, and the main bathroom upstairs that everyone showers in.
I first got into bath and body works when I was in my first couple years of high school in 2013-2015. Wasn’t really shopping there after that except for the occasional hand soap or hand sanitizer. Then shopped a little bit in 2020, but it has been full-blown obsession in 2021 and 2022. After the SAS that ended in January, I haven’t really bought much from them. I still love it but it feels like the obsession is just shifting towards other things and the price increases.
Posting this to hopefully remind myself that I don’t need to get too much this sale. Buy some things to play around with and get some backups of the scents I love that they will be discontinuing 🤞🏻🤞🏻

2023.06.01 20:13 testtubepax Purchase advice

Hello there !
I am look to join y'all in the Jeep group rather soon, and I am hoping to hear your recommendations, experience, any wise (or not) words which could help me decide on my first Jeep.
My needs: buying used, manual, light off-roading so I have no special requirements - close to stock is good. Riding motorcycle as my primary vehicle, so Jeep will be used on as-need basis. I would drive it during bad weather and/or occasional off-roading.
My conundrum: due to above requirements, I do not need anything "flashy", I am looking at Wrangler X/Sport model(s). I do not care about the newer tech that is being added, and I am perfectly fine with bare-bones unit. I only care that it is mechanically sound. With that said I found several vehicles from different years and wondering how to proceed. Assuming that mechanically vehicles check-out, which would you recommend for me:
  1. 1997 SE, 153k miles, 4 cyl, soft top, ~8k
  2. 1999 SE, 163K miles, 4 cyl, hard top, ~$5.5k
  3. 2002 Sport, 83K miles, 6 cyl, soft top, ~16k
  4. 2006 SE, 88k miles, 4 cyl, soft top, ~$18k
  5. 2014 Sport, 101k miles, 6 cyl, soft top, ~$17k
As you can see, I do not care about the looks, nor the age. I am not afraid to pay up, but I also would not like to overpay it. I am only interested in reliability, so I do not have to wrench it often. With not much knowledge to start off, I learned that '06 and older have a better reliability grades than later models/years, and coincidentally, that is the last year for 2.5L 4-cyl engine.
From the expected light off-road use and high gas prices in CA, I am longing for the 4-cyl option, but looking solely at the price and age, they are quite expensive for their age (the 2015 one seems like the best bang for the buck).
I tried researching it on my own, but my google search gave me only biased reviews and sale pitches. Maybe I am not searching it with the right search terms.

I am moving this weekend, so I may not have a chance to reply to all of you. All replies are appreciated, positive and negative ones.

Thank you

2023.06.01 20:01 PhiloSpo Slavery and Old Testament, Comparative Law in Ancient Near East, Part I

Originally.
(i) Slavery, in its different manifestations, was for a notable part of its history a spectrum, it could even be relative (to complicate things right from the start, relative in a legal sense, i.e., associated with split legal subjectivity, that is one could be a slave in relation to the person and not a slave in relation to the third person. E.g., this was a known regional occurrence in Ancient Near East family law, where (1) one could not be both a spouse and an owner, meaning the personality was split by the husband and an owner, (2) concubinage and offsprings in some circumstances, e.g. concubinage with a non-owner, could lead to peculiar consequences where ownership was limited. This complex interaction between law of persons, property law, family law and consequently inheritance, occurs when slaves have the recognized capability to enter legally cognizable familial relationships – comparatively rich and understudied subject, be it regionally or locally in Ancient Near East and (pre)classical Greece, as if we make a connection now with what will be said below, Slavery in later Greco-Roman milieu has some notable differences compared to previous millennia, this being one of them, but the situation changes again by the early middle ages, when we again see complex familiar relationship concurrent with changes to the insitution itself), it showed noticeable regional variability, it depended on citizenship status, potential public relation (e.g. corvée), etc.
(i.i) What it meant by a spectrum is that different status coexisted, what we typically call chattel slavery (heritable status with almost non-existent legal subjectivity - why almost is that ANE differed from Roman in this regard in some finesses, though granted, framing it like that can be a bit unfortunate) and other forms of slavery which had specific legal consequences, (a) ex contractu (self-sale, sale of alieni iuris, to show the complexity here, e.g. the latter form could result in chattel slavery, it could be with a limitation period on redemption if the loan was not for a full price of a pledge, after which the person could be non-redeemable, or via some other penalty provision etc.), in this broad category we could also add a pledge and a distrainee (all these would be subject to varying contractual provisions – we can however extrapolate some regional tendencies of customary law in some periods), (b) ex delicto, this was closely entwined with contractual obligations, but it nevertheless has some important peculiarities (e.g. slavery arising from these obligations could fall outside of some post hoc court-intervention or debt-release, a royal prerogative jurisdiction), (c) there are some other forms differentiated by some legal historians, like famine-slavery, but we would complicate this too much with further nuances. All these lead to different legal consequences and interactions with other fields of law.
(i.ii) Biblical peculiarity on this is that it is prima facie more stringent and detailed textually (I will return to this word) with limitation on ownership for some types of slavery – that is Israelite slaves. Non-Israelite slavery is rarely mentioned in legal texts of the Bible, and when it is, it is indirectly by contrasting it to the benevolence afforded to fellow Israelite slaves, its presence is better attested in other narrative sources. But it is not exactly clear how this would translate to practice (comparatively, even debt-slaves were alienable, but the right of redemption was a real right to be exercised against any new owner or possessor), given that similar limitations existed for some forms of slavery elsewhere in surrounding cultures. That is not to say there were no differences, but we do not have legal documentations from Palestine/Judea from this period. In any case, this did not apply to chattel slaves (unless naturally, they were not yours, but were in your possession with a real or contractual title), both in Ancient Near East or Old Testament. Another unsolved issue is that there were plenty of mechanisms for non-chattel slave to become a chattel-slave, but OT is rather silent on this (or better, we do not have actual legal documentation which would attest this to any specifics) with only very limited and rather ambiguous textual references – but if look at it comparatively in surrounding cultures, this did happen. Another one that is frequently mentioned is blanket sale prohibition (akin to Ham. Codex §279-281), or flight protection (cf. Deut. 23:16-17), but this did not and could not apply domestically - it would make the whole institution of slavery unworkable (and anything in relation to it, security, property rights, ...), both for chattel and other types of slavery. The idealistic meaning, the Covenant as addressee, is a blank prohibition to Israel of making treaties internationally to engage in slave-extradition - but again, what this meant in practice (or what basis it had in practice, if any) is not known.
(i.iii) Another issue frequently raised which warrants a closer look, which we will tackle comparatively, is Exod. 21:20-21. It seems easy to situate within Ancient Near Eastern tradition (e.g., Cod. Ham. 116), namely, a creditor could due to violence, mistreatment or injury done to a pledge or a distrainee with this action forfeit his claim in part or in full (subtract compensation from the loan), or even be subjected to vicarious punishment (this sub-principle of talion is later explicitly condemned in Deuteronomy, so it further complicates things) if a pledge or a distrainee dies and compensation is not paid (there is no direct talion as the injured party was not free). All this is fairly clear to this point, the issue becomes, if we reason a contrario, that chattel-slaves could be killed at discretion (without cause), which is mistaken – masters generally in Ancient Near East do not have the right to kill slaves (narrow exceptions), but have to go with cause through appropriate judicial venue (when executions happened, they were not to be performed by owners) – there is nothing special with Exod. 21:20-21, the misunderstanding enters due to anachronistic backreading of Roman legal norms which differed on this, where owners could exercise summary execution in principle without cause. To save myself here from further critiques, (i) this was a¸most plausible development (Roman law, comparatively, probably did not recognize this capacity in earliest stages, i.e., without cause, but due to development of roman society, e.g., later disappearance of a comparable institute of debt-slavery could have removed the incentives for moderation we see in Ancient Near Eastern milieu. Evolution and disappearance of nexum has been a subject of great scholarly attention (pre-tables, post-tables, lex Poetelia, comparatively with paramonè and antichresis (primarily as pledge) in service), but this is beyond our scope here, and this was naturally a simplification, selling, non-pledgeability of persons was a process which was not realized, but nevertheless, the characterization holds for our purposes here) and (ii) classical period slowly ascribes some very limited legal subjectivity to slaves. This Greco-Roman tradition is important to the development of rabbinic texts on slavery at this time, which changes the understanding of OT. [Nothing said here is precluding the corporal mistreatment, punishments, brandings, sexual exploitation, etc., it is merely beyond the intended scope of the post]
(ii) Now, if we return and expand on that textuality (i.ii), it was meant as a relation between legal codices (ANE codies, Old Testament) and legal practice. Much of the scholarship is about the former, and one should not conflate the two with bringing later ideas about law backwards. These texts were not positive law (i.e. that courts would apply in actual cases) – this had been a hotly debated subject for the more than half a century with various arguments, ranging from royal apologia, (legal) scientific text in Mesopotamian scientific tradition (divination, medicine, … e.g. they also share textual and structural affinity), notable juridical scribal exercises and problems … That is not to say they have no relation to practice or that they are not profoundly informative about ancient cultures, customs or law – but literal reading of them and literal application is more than problematic, not only because law rarely (never) gets application like this (there is always interpretative methodology), but because they were not positive law to be actually applied at all. Sadly though, this is extrapolated (high confidence) to Ancient Israel and Judea to the lack of record to be compared against, but it can be stated for surrounding cultures, where legal documentations plainly contradicts codices, neither does it reference them. So, when we read about time-limitations (3 years, 7 years, Jubilee), it is not something one would see either as legal norm itself in this strict sense narrowly or something the courts or contract would take as non-dispositive (if we take these texts to have some non-legal ideal with cultural values to be strived toward), not to mention they would be a notable inhibition in practice to legal transactions (they would as a consequence de facto limit loan-amount, shifting the preference of pledged objects, no one would lend and credit in years prior to Jubilee, etc.). Likewise, we have documentation from surrounding cultures which likewise plainly contradict these time-limitations. From this we also cannot know surely what limitations (if there were any practically, but even the text offers some workaround, or rather consitent pattern how courts would intervene customarily - though one should note customs were or would be territorially particularized) would there be for Israelites becoming chattel slaves to fellow Israelites through various mechanism (e.g. whether contractual provisions could bar or limit right of redemption under relevant circumstances, what sort of coercion could a creditor employ etc.) in practice.
Obviously, the situation is much more complex. The old revisionist vanguard (Kraus, Bottero, Finkelstein,...) has cleared the ground for newer, more integrated proposals (Westbrook, Veenhof, Barmash, Jackson..., Chripin in the middle, to those that squared it closer to the pre-revisionist line, Petschow, Démare-Lafont,...), while the latter is a modest minority (take this reservedly, I do not intend to mischaracterize their work, which is an unavoidable consequence of this short excerpt), even in biblical law, there seems to be no end in sight - but this is not the subject of this post.
(ii.i) A type of act that is referenced though are edicts. (There was no systematic legislation or uniformization of law, save some partial exceptions on the matters of royal/public administration and taxation/prices – royal involvement in justice was, beside edictal activity, through royal adjudication, beside mandates to other officials). Our interest here is limited to debt-relief edicts (as an exercise of mì“šarum prerogative), for which we have considerable textual attestation, both direct and indirect (references) – they were typically quite specific what kind of debt (and by implication slavery) was released (e.g. delictual debt could be exempt), by status (degrees of kinship, citizenship specific), region, time,… (e.g. Jer. 34:8–1, Neh. 5:1–13, but OT authors/redactors can be critical of failure to use this prerogative).
(ii.ii) Prescriptivity of written law (legislation whose norms would be primary, mandatory and non-derogable - or even the connection to understand law as "written" law) is something which slowly develops in Ancient and classical Greece, 7th-4th century BC, which was a considerable change in Mediterranean legal milieu, also influencing second Temple Judaism with emergence of prescriptivity in probably mid Persian period.
(iii) This shorter section will be devoted to some features of the principle of talion. Equal corporal retribution (talion) principle predates Hammurabi´s codex (e.g. codex Lipit-Ishtar, 19th century BC), though not in this specific textual form. The most famous textual form comes from the biblical tradition, e.g. Exod. 21:23-25, which is a modified transmission from Ham. Codex (§ 196-200). But biblical tradition likewise further changes the principle itself, e.g. insofar as it denies vicarious talion explicitly as a reference to previous textual tradition (Deuteronomy). It should be noted however that there is signifixant divergence in the understanding of these verses, e.g. Westbrook said it is not a case of talion at all and offers a completely different interpretation. In any case, the principle enters into cuneiform law (Summerian Lip.-Ish. and Akkadian Ham. in Old Babylonian Period) at the end of the 3rd mil. BC and early 2nd mil. BC, most plausibly through West Semitic (Hebrews & Ancient Israelites as their descendants) being the influence with migration at the time. Older cuneiform law texts do not know it in this corporal form - composition is in pecuniary amount with injury tarrifs (similar to e.g. later Anglo-Saxon tables, see this post). Regardless of what we say about the textuality and scholarly/scribal legal tradition above, there is no reason to suppose this textual change materialized in changed practice. Compositional systems follow the same logic, in lieu of revenge and retaliation (which was subsidiary and subjected to potential “public” intervention in Ancient Near East and elsewhere, medieval and early modern period had another institute, destruction), the injured party and offending party primarily negotiated a compensation, which results in a debt to be settled, where talion was a measuring value in negotiations, i.e. starting at the worth of injuries should they befall the offending party. Not the subject at hand, but the Medieval period on this is, if anything, more fascinating - the institution was present on the continent right to the end of the ancien regime in the 18th century and corresponding changes in criminal law into modern form, as it was gradually pushed out, starting in late medieval period.
—----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There are naturally multitudes of issues to be raised here (I tried to keep it concise), e.g., marriage and gender, children, role of sexuality and sexual exploitation to slavery, later developments to which I passingly alluded, etc., they might be addressed further down the line in the next post. Further clarifications in the comments.

2023.06.01 19:51 elevenmile Weekly Ochiai's Interview with Naoki Yoshida (in full)

The following info is a summary, and contains some info that most people already know. Some information will be omitted. For instance YoshiP and the host's discussion on Metaverse, and YoshiP's opinion on AI (TL;DR: He has no definitive stance)
What is Weekly Ochiai? Basically an online based talk show program hosted by Yoichi Ochiai. He's a media artist and academic researcher.

Program flow (from top to bottom)

Introduction

  • Ochiai's introduction
  • YoshiP's entrance, introduction (as usual, YoshiP's designation is very long: One of the Board Directors of Square Enix, Chief of Creative Business Division 3, Final Fantasy XIV Producer, Director, and Final Fantasy XVI's Producer)
  • YoshiP accepts the invitation because he gets a chance to speak to Ochiai (his first time talking to Ochiai). So much that he wanted to have a meal with him, so he attended the interview without eating. Ochiai is very honored.
  • Introduction on what FFXVI is.
  • Introduction video of FFXVI. This footage is chosen

Final Fantasy XVI Part I

  • Story introduction
  • YoshiP wants people to have fun with the story. To laugh, to cry and to enjoy. The length of the story is equivalent to a 4 seasons of overseas TV series ※ The word "overseas" instead of "western" is because of playing it safe. "海外" is mostly defined as foreign or overseas countries outside Japan (a general definition). If it's specifically western, the word "西洋 "would be used.
  • As known before, they are doing their best to ensure there's no loading required in this game.
  • Sure, people can enjoy the story, but please take ample sleep and rest as well.

Final Fantasy XIV

  • Recounting the experience in how YoshiP got into Final Fantasy XIV. This is already recounted numerous times so I'm not going to repeat it anymore.
  • Prior to joining/transferred to work on XIV, he was still in the Dragon Quest side.
  • When FFXIV was in the progress of rebuilding, Ochiai was still in university.
  • Rebuilding the game from scratch is touted by FFXIV as "the first in the game industry". Plenty of media people wonder why YoshiP just didn't scrap XIV and make it XV instead, which YoshiP says that doing so wouldn't restore people's faith in Final Fantasy series, thus revamping the entire game was necessary to do so.

Final Fantasy XV

  • YoshiP heard that there are a lot of people who enjoyed FFXV, however the most glaring problem in the feedback he received was how "abrupt" the story ended, as well as the DLC and its issues. This was already touched on other interviews. So as YoshiP go to various places and talked to the players about XV, most of the criticisms he got focused on that. While each FF is created based on what the director wishes the game to be, since XVI is a title followed by XV, and story being one of the important elements of an RPG, YoshiP wants to ensure that they can tell the story in a coherent manner to address the cons. of XV and also prove to players and fans that Final Fantasy is still going strong, so story is where the development team is pouring their absolute effort in.

On how the story is evaluated※ by YoshiP when creating a masterpiece game

  • YoshiP shares his thoughts by citing the difference between how a Hollywood movie is made (its system and how a script decides who to fund them), and how the game is created in Japan. As games are created by corporations there's no funding involved, therefore it's very systematic, and thus there's no evaluation/review involved in it. Since all of the ones developing the games are gamers too, they just read through and give feedback to the scriptwriter. Just that the requirement is to create a unified "story + game experience".
※ In Japanese, review, but the word "review" is not used because it's not really accurate when trying to get across the meaning in English

Final Fantasy XVI Part II

  • When was YoshiP approached to make the game? 2015
  • Ochiai points out that world changes a lot in between 2015 to 2023, citing the war between Russia and Ukraine, COVID, and even in game industry itself, Fortnite gaining prominence plus Unreal Engine's evolution, how different development 3D games have become, indie games and how game development environment has also changed and move forward since, so he asked YoshiP on how all of this affected the story and the development throughout. YoshiP then shares on how the game started its development: The game started with only 3 members, as at that time FFXIV was gaining prominence and is growing rapidly, and YoshiP directly told the higherups that immediately working on XVI was not possible because of this. And since YoshiP was, and still is, working as a director and producer of FFXIV, he cannot work as the director for FFXVI, which is why he chose Hiroshi Takai to take the position, out of time reasons as well as consideration to the fanbase (which he doesn't feel it's appropriate). The game started with only 3 members: Producer, Director, and Script Writer. As XVI being slowly worked on for one year, the transition from other staff members working on XIV to XVI began. The story was decided at that time to be static, universal and easily understood. The base of the story at that time was based on energy wars - There's crystals, crystals benefit civilization, flourished, and so on. Then the Blight happens, which he won't detail. Thus, it's a story containing military history, with medieval gothic Europe-style as a base, Magic, and each countries on war with each other fighting for resource. However YoshiP didn't expect that war between Russia and Ukraine actually broke out (he didn't mention this directly but you know what he meant) and he actually discussed with Sony before once to cancel the schedule he had with them during the second trailer release. He is worried that in this timing, releasing a game that contain a realistic depiction of war (followed by people dying in war and living desperately in face of death) may not be appropriate because of the events that are happening, even though it's just entertainment.
  • Ochiai also cited a point where VI and VII (where he's from that generation) was also enjoyable due to how "movie-like" it is. And he also thought of how forward thinking VII was. YoshiP agrees because at that time, the Gaia Hypothesis was also gaining prominence during the 90s in Japan, which give birth to the concept of Lifestream, and that impacts him a lot. Ochiai also discussed on how FFVII Remake has a universal story theme that deals with energy as a theme.
  • The other point of XVI is the Eikons and the Dominants, and how their existence affects the story as well as the "energy/resources theme" .
  • Ochiai also brought up FFX, which he enjoyed when he was in middle school days. YoshiP also commented that Ochiai's generation is where they praised FFX highly as one of the greatest masterpiece (FFX is very popular in Japan)
  • Ochiai followed by asking what would be the greatest FF for people before his generation. YoshiP answers that since he's 50, his generation would pick FFI as their favorite because coming into FFI after Dragon Quest is very different because of how FF is so much more dramatic, then followed by III due to how polished the game is due to the job system, as well as the occurrence of Crystal Tower. VII would be another shocking moment for YoshiP as the game transitions into 3D, as well as it's volume (3 discs worth of content), but ultimately the definition of what Final Fantasy is can be different from generation to generation, individual to individual.
  • Switching topics, from 3 starting members, it then expands to about 30, and work further for 1 1/2 years for the alpha version. Ultimately due to the nature of the venue, YoshiP isn't willing to disclose the exact amount of people working on it, but it's on "several hundreds". This game is also not developed in Japan only, it's an international effort (production outsourcing, facial captures done in studio outside Japan, etc). YoshiP has given a very small info. You can press Triangle button to speed up the staff credits roll.
  • YoshiP has cited the reason behind why it's full facial capture because of how the graphics have evolved up to this point that not using full-facial capture is going to end up looking fake, thus breaking immersion.
  • Ochiai followed with another question on how much the graphics have changed between each titles he have worked on, from his days in Hudson Soft, to DQX, to FFXIV , then to FFXVI. YoshiP answered by stating that in XIV, there's a lot of considerations to make when it comes to graphic because of rendering several hundreds of people in one screen, and how the memory has to accommodate for home consoles, so it's a lot different than developing for standalone games. When it comes to standalone FF game, since they are developing the game from scratch, they can reconsider the technology (and did), and find out the trend, which development pipeline to use, and discard things that are unnecessary.
  • And since the game is rendered on real time, Ochiai asks if there's anything YoshiP is particular about when developing the game through the use of game engine. YoshiP's answer: They wanted to stop using anything that is related to pre-render, but there is one particular scene that involves the sea (which he won't detail because spoilers) and he felt that going real time render is impossible for that particular moment, so he'd say 95% of the game is real time, and the sea/ocean is pre-render, and characters that are rendered in real time will be pre-rendered just for that particular part and created a movie cutscene of it without any need of loading (since they are going with an FF with no "Now Loading" on screen). Another thing that the development team is particular about would be the use of Cutscene Editor (things they use to create cutscenes): with many people using the editor, addressing feedback and having programmers working to perfect the tools and create amazing cutscene through the tools as well.
  • YoshiP has emphasized on one thing: He has no idea who or which department will be creating FFXVII (FF17). Of course the above mentioned experiences would be useful for any new work developed by CBU3 in the future, but he has no idea if the experiences working in FFXVI will help FFXVII for now.

On Worldwide Game Market

  • According to this, as of 2023, the worldwide game industry market share (if the term is wrong please correct me) has reached 172.6 billion (Roughly 24 trillion yen), and in 2023, 88% of that number is occupied by the digital market, which includes console games (download), PC games (download), mobile games and so on.
  • YoshiP has one again reiterate that this will be PS5 exclusive (for now). Ochiai asks if there's online or multiplayer content, YoshiP then answered that there's a high difficulty mode after clearing the game once, and a score attack mode will be available, which people can compete with others in scores. While it's not player vs player, the score will be uploaded to the leaderboard, and people can compete with each other. Basically, this is a single player RPG game. Ochiai comments that it's rare to see a game like this today.
  • Ochiai then followed with his next question: In Square Enix, which age range/generation occupies the most for the current development team composition for FFXVI. YoshiP answered that the development members are mostly in their latter 30s (by average), which Ochiai commented that their exposure on their first FF lies on around VI or VII, and entered Square Enix after the merger (Square Enix was previously known as Squaresoft), and also got used to games emulating the movie watching experience, and pursue high fidelity graphics, thus they know what to achieve in terms of their ideal FF. YoshiP agrees, saying that FF has been aiming for high quality graphics since the near end of SNES days (VI), therefore expecting high quality graphics have been the baseline compared to other games. The other would be the game volume, story and music. Those components are what have been expected by the fans, so it's an absolute requirement when working in FF. As someone working in the management side, he is highly aware that those are necessary.
  • Even the modelers of FFXVI are from Square Enix (meaning it's done internally, not outsourced). There's even staff members working specifically at sculpting (especially a master), working on the physical outlook of the Eikons. YoshiP specifically went to Fine Arts university to find talented sculptors to work for him. At first these people doesn't look like they're interested in digital work but demonstrating how important having a sculptor can contribute a lot to expressing their artistry in game industry, it changed their minds and thus willing to offer themselves to work on FFXVI. This shows that the development team can be very particular at their work, so even for sculptors, they can spend one full day only sculpting on the models.
  • Ochiai then followed by asking about how AIs are utilized in FFXVI (as party members acting on their own, the game system operated by AI, etc). YoshiP finds it difficult to answer because it depends on which segment to utilize AI, but to him, there is a worth in creating a stage through human hands because a sense of entertainment can be felt from there, but for things that are extremely tough to be done manually, then a level of automation using AI would be better, although from academic point of view, the level is really low. However since the technology is rapidly advancing and it comes to the point where doing it manually can end up being unmanageable, therefore having AI managing some of the task proved to be helpful and positive in this case.

Questions from viewers

Q: What makes a game uninteresting/unfun for games that should have been interesting/fun? What can be done to make it (an uninteresting or unfun game) rise again from its ashes? A: I think the definition of the word "uninteresting / unfun" is not as good thing here, and this is what I said this last time as well. I received a lot of evaluation about how this "isn't fun" or "isn't like Final Fantasy", but if you keep looking into it it's just nothing but negative. Now, what makes it not fun, and finding the reason behind and analyzing it is something I love to do, so for example, server being too heavy, and opening a door takes about a minute? Yeah, that's not interesting, right? It just adds up to your stress. So from there once you dissect the factors and reason behind why things aren't fun, then the whole word behind what makes it "not fun" will no longer be a thing...(omitted halfway)...then by doing so, once you dissect everything, and when you solve them all things will become interesting. Well, at the very least I find that game will become interesting, and that's how I approach it with that mindset.
  • YoshiP then cites his experiencing in rebuilding FFXIV at that time, smashing issues that are worth 12,000 lines in Excel during the analysis of what makes FFXIV 1.0 such a failure.
  • YoshiP also cites that one cannot approach an issue and solve it through sensationalism.
Q: What are your thoughts in Final Fantasy remakes? I'd like to know what you think about FFVII Remake. A: To players like me who had played VII (the original) on release, the game is legendary. But how people accept the game can differ. Like when I was just focus on leveling up Materias during the end game, like how I was focusing on leveling Knights of the Round and other Materias before the final boss, and as I am working towards strengthening my characters to absurd levels, I ended up forgetting about the story. This happened too when I was playing Dragon Quest VI, where once I start to go ham on perfecting the characters, I end up feeling hazy about the story. But to me, if you were to ask me what's the most interesting part about VII, then it's definitely that part, right?
When it comes to remaking the game in modern context, since the game is developed by a different division, we didn't necessary discuss with each other about it, but I take that they have been thinking really hard on what it takes to remake this game. But still it's a game with a momentum where almost everyone in the company is involved in the development, so to release this with only one disc worth of content, 100% of it with the graphics quality we have today is likely impossible. Therefore, because VII is a game where those who played it already know what the game is about, so even if the game is divided into three parts, it's a game where the developers would want to properly create this game in its entirety, and it's because of this sentiment they have that it's been separated into three parts. Also, because this is an FF game that has begun to emphasise the appeal of its characters, I believe they are attempting to create a game experience while focusing heavily on these characters.
I've already known somewhat about the next game that everyone has been looking forward to, but since I'll get scold for saying too much so I'm stopping here but it's a very well made game so please look forward to it.
  • YoshiP also cites that people have different answers to the question "What is Final Fantasy X", but they can't just take everyone's answers in and create a game with those in mind, so it's a challenge to create a game for the series.
Q: Are the accessories that YoshiP is wearing right now FF related? A: Necklace is from FFXVI. It's not even officially announced, and it's just a prototype. Since I like silver accessories, so when it comes to making things related to my own products, I usually conduct the supervision myself, and if the product is not to my liking, I'll never move on with it and release to the public. I also have two rings that are FFXIV related. The rest however are bought from street stalls. This armor looking ring I have with me is from Diane Westwood. I found this ring when I was involved in the production for another fantasy game when I was 25 and was looking for armor (as reference). This ring then appeared in my search results and I thought, "Wow this is so cool!", and this ring was the first time I actually used credit card and purchased it from a website. But that's the only branded accessories I have and the rest are from street stalls, and some stuff were bought when I was on official trip in Mexico and so on.
Q: How does it feel for Final Fantasy to have continued and reached 16? A: Wow I mean I am thankful, but it probably dawned at me that there's probably no series other than FF with the number "16" attached to it, yes?
Ah yeah, so I got a question from overseas media asking me when I was being interviewed asking if there was a discussion of doing away the numbering format for Final Fantasy titles, and I answered "yes I did" but somehow this led to voices being spread that Yoshida wants to do away with FF numbering format for titles in the future, and I gotta say no that's not what it is!
So I am doing a lot of PR things for 16 (FF16), there are people in their 20s, and those young media (consumers or journalists) who hasn't played a single FF title before. So indeed...I asked them why don't they play FF then? And I also did marketing research as well as talked to the players and gamers around the world. They told "Eh, so I have to play FF1 right? Like I don't have the time for it!" and I went, "No, no that's not the case!" And indeed you were right, as there are several foreign/western games that stopped using numbering on their long running franchise and switched to using subtitle format, but ultimately, well this is a debate I did take part, but there are a lot spinoff titles for Final Fantasy, right? Therefore, sure we can take the numbering off, but this will make it look like it's a spinoff and that is an actually difficult thing to do. And for most fans they are quite proud of the FF titles they like that are numbered and so it's not an easy thing to do, which is why we just went with it for 16. But somehow that part was all omitted and somehow they made it sound like I wanted to do away the numbering (laughs)! But since you asked, I figure this would be a good chance for me to bring it up and explain it.
  • YoshiP also commented on the difficulty of reading Roman numeral and how confusing it can be when looking at 14 and 16 (FFXIV, and FFXVI).
  • YoshiP also commented about the packaging design, since in Japan, the physical package only consists of a logo with a white background. But this time they've decided to stop it and go with packaging with artwork background. This led to YoshiP commenting about how they need to work hard to keep attracting more players to try out Final Fantasy and if they stopped moving forward, the series will end up being a niche as it is. So it's always important for him to keep figuring out how to get new players into the series and enjoy the series together.
Q: In the past, Director Kamiyama has mentioned that it's hard to look at things without being spoiled, and I think it's truly the case here but what about this time? Do you think it's better for us to lock Twitter in order to avoid spoilers? A: I'm quite a contrarian here and I also like mystery (genre), so I'd like to be surprised when playing it. When looking at PV, I will think "oh it's definitely this or that" and hype things up, and I do like that. But once I go further and got bamboozled, "Ouch I was wrong", or "No that wasn't the case!".
Ochiai: Ok everyone do shut down your SNS accounts!
YoshiP continued: So when playing the game, I'd love for them to concentrate without looking at info around the Internet. I also got comments saying that is it fine to show this much because so many trailers have been released, and I have to say we haven't shown anything crucial.
Ochiai: Ah, so a shutdown is required then.
YoshiP: Yeah please do. Well, there's also many people who judge purchases through looking at livestreams and decide whether to buy from there. I don't deny what they're doing here but for those who want the full experience, it'd be nice if they shut themselves completely online so that they can enjoy the game in full.
Q: We have game livestreaming in today's age and the feeling is the same as looking at family members playing on TV screen back during the Famicom (NES) days and that's fun on its own. So what do you think about livestream and its culture? A: I don't think too much about it. If people having fun watching at it from entertainment perspective then there's no right or wrong in it, and if they're really not comfortable with it then they could just not stream it and that would be it. However it does feel irritating when you were told "yeah I have seen everything I don't feel like playing it anymore" but having a reaction looking at your favorite streamers playing it does indeed feel emotional, or getting excited over looking at streamers defeating enemies so hard that you know you'll never touch it, it does give the PR of how this game can make people laugh, cry or cheer, and that experience itself is invaluable. I also watch players streaming, so it's something I appreciate.
  • YoshiP also commented on people who loves backseating in stream comments. Which he does comment on hoping this can stop and let the streamers play the game in peace, even for games that he aren't involved. To quote, "Oh god enough of those instructions and just let them play for fun!". He does understand why people do so though.
Q: This might be a weird question to ask but since you have put so much energy and effort into creating this game, but when it comes to management, how do you translate that into profits and sales? In terms of timing and your target audience and so on. (Since the answer to this is very important, a separate thread will be created for this)
That's about it. But as mentioned just above, there was a question regarding how he'd project and predict on the sales of the game. Since this is important, a separate thread will be created so that people can take note of that.

2023.06.01 19:20 MooMoosATTACK Engine swap?

Aside from, this is the stupidest idea ever, would it be feasible to put a mercedes-amg cla45 s engine inside of 2001 Toyota rav4? On a similar note, I was looking for a swap with a 2018 Porsche 718 Cayman GTS engine into a Porsche 944. I’m not too experienced so I’d probably take it to a shop that does these kind of things, but I don’t know how I can get just the engines so I don’t have to pay for the whole car that has the engine. Thoughts?
