2023.06.10 19:49 TheOther18Covids Not stopping at the crosswalk on 33rd and ave D N?

Just came back from a drive and was just curious if I did anything wrong.
So I'm heading east on 33rd and there's a cyclist heading west. He's stopped with his hand out signaling to turn left on ave D. There are people waiting on the north side of the crosswalk. I look up and my light is green. I scan the intersection to make sure no one is stepping out and that it's safe to proceed. so I continue driving. The cyclist who is waiting to turn starts screaming at me and pointing to the people at the crosswalk. He then proceeds to flip me off after I pass through.
Was I wrong in this situation?
I was under the impression that this was a traffic light controlled crosswalk. However, by the reaction of the cyclist, who was quite pissed that I didn't stop, I'm questioning whether I need to stop at that crosswalk even if my light is green.
Thank you in advance!

Use this thread to promote yourself and/or your work!
(Descriptions of fictional crimes investigated by the story's main Character Max.)
Detective's Fate
It's august of 2008.....
Max is a detective living in Chicago He checks his pistol and puts on his police badge as he walks out his front door.
He has been searching for a serial killer known as the Caller for years and always been one step behind due to the red tape.....
More importantly the chief's lazy attitude towards getting search warrants and actions approved by the courts for raids. Twice Max had good intel on the suspect's locations and photo evidence showing him at the sites.
The department needs more vigilant, caring officers and leaders but no one steps up to do it, instead they just complain about the slow progress and officers. And hinder investigations.
Now Max has decided that it might be time to stop playing by the rules and catch this scumbag.... .... ....
Starting his car Max sets his GPS to the address that "The Caller" was last seen and pulls out of his driveway as the 50 miles of directions pop up.
The killer's nickname being for his signature of calling in as he is committing the crime.
As he drives he remembers his first case, five years ago now..... ..... .....
A woman, Joane Taylor, was found dead in an alleyway after going out for the night. She showed no signs of struggle leading the police to believe she had drank to much and expired from alcohol poisoning.... ...
The death was written off as a "party gone wrong".... That is until several more were found and the coroner decided on a whim to test for other substances.
Once it came out that the deaths were possible murders...
The calls started coming in, almost like the suspect wanted credit before revealing himself....
Then ways of the deaths began changing as the Serial Killer explored his twisted desires searching for his preferred method.
The last case being a young woman found stuffed in a dumpster after the killer apparently got scared off.... Max will never forget it.... .... ....
The GPS finishes and the car beeps its final direction, taking an exit off the highway. Ramps out here are always confusing... Which is funny since he has driven this one for five years now...
The chief says he should sit this one out but he can't... The latest victim 3 months ago.
Marie Spelner, a waitress out on her smoke break talking to her spouse on the phone.
Survived by her husband, no children or living relatives. ....
Max Spelner turns into the driveway of the house he was directed to... Stepping out of the car he walks up and knocks on the door. Looking at the house he knows the family must be doing well if they live here.... Raising his hand to knock again he hears a scream from inside....
A second later the door is answered by a middle aged butler holding a tray with wine glasses on it... "Hello Sir, I'm sorry but this house does not wish to partake in any offers at this time..."
Max calmly says. "I'm not selling anything."
The butler looks confused for a moment before his eyes dart over Max's shoulder seeing his unmarked cruiser and he nods.
Looking past the butler Max sees that a woman is cleaning up after their dog.
"Have you seen this man?" Says Max holds up a picture of the one suspected of being the killer.
The butler gives it a once over before replying. "I'm sorry sir, no I have not." His tone sounds like he is lying... ....
"Are you sure?" The detective asks.
"I would not lie about something like that, sir." He states, his eyes not meeting Max's.
The woman calls from inside "Fletcher, who are you talking too?"
"Some man asking about a killer" he calls back.
"The killer is an inside job!" The woman quickly states.
"What?!" Max says.
"The Killer, it's an inside job." She says again, louder this time. In the same Max also hears a child begin to cry in another room.
"We should start from the beginning, it will be easier to explain trust me." The woman says.
'She seems to know what is going on....
"How do I know your story holds water?" He asks out loud.
"Oh I wouldn't lie. I have been following the case myself and it seems like an inside job to me." She states, somehow sounding hurt.
"Is there anyone else in the house besides you two and the baby?" He asks noticing the baby isn't crying anymore.
"Just Fletcher and I live here, the baby is my cousins but he just stays the night sometimes." She replies.
Max draws his gun and enters the house upon reasonable suspicion of an emergency in progress or suspect on the premisses as the man seems to be deceiving.
While the woman still seems unconcerned that the child is now silent.
He pushes past the butler and rushes towards the area he heard the crying. passes the entryway, the dinning room, and a kitchen before finally finding a child in a playpen.
"There there..." He says in a sing song voice picking up the child. "I'm officer Max, do you know where your mommy is?"
The child just cries louder.
Then he sees the man from the photo walk out of the bathroom, upon seeing him he bolts for the door and Max sets the child down gently then gives chase.
He runs through the house, following the man as he can hear the woman screaming at him to stop but he doesn't."
"Stop or I'll shoot." The man doesn't even break stride.
Instead he runs out of the front door and jumps into his car.
Furious that the man might escape he fires at the car as it drives away.
The back window shatters and he hopes he got his tire, but he doesn't wait to find out as he runs to his car and initiates a pursuit....
He flips on his concealed lights in his cruiser as he reverses down the drive and into the street.
The suspects car is fast but he manages to keep up with it weaving in and out of traffic as people move over for the siren.
As they approach a red light there is heavy traffic in the intersection..... ....
The suspect slams on his brakes and Max's cruiser only just stops short of hitting it. Jumping out the Detective points his firearm at the vehicle running up beside seeing heavily tinted windows.
"Get out of the car and on the ground now!!" He shouts as he moves to the driver's side door.
After seeing no response....
Max throws open the door and the driver is gone with the passenger side open.
He quickly runs to the other side catching the man trying to sneak off tackling him to the ground and then takes his arms putting them behind his back.
Max grabs his radio and calls it in as the man cries.
As he is waiting he hears a noise that sounds like static.....
"Wrong guy moron.. Did you ever stop to think I wanted you close for this one. That I planned everything...Even framing the pothead..... I almost lost interest until you pulled in the driveway... The attic is kinda cramped tho... I think I'll go carve some meat. Maybe graduate to other things to. I'm not sure yet. Lets see if you can catch me before......" A familiar voice says over the radio then cuts off... ...
Max looks at the man on the ground. "Why did you run from me?" He asks.
"Cause I have like 19 grams of marijuana in my pocket." He replies...
"Do you know how stupid that is?! I don't care about that I'm looking for a killer."
Before he can answer Max hears the woman from the house screaming for her life and a child's cries on his radio.
Then from below Max. "He's in the house, he's in the house! My mom and the baby!" The man on the ground says crying.
Max uncuffs him and runs to his car heading back to the house as he lays down rubber on the road... ... ...
As he approaches and pulls into the driveway he notices the front door is open.
"Hold on I'm coming!" Max screams jumping out of his cruiser...
He runs into the house finding the woman's body arriving too late. Moving over to her he checks for a pulse but she is gone, a large gash in her neck.
As he stands up he slips in a fluid but gains his balance and tries not to think about what it is....
He rushes to the room the baby was in finding the play pen empty. He leaves the room searching the rest of the house and still doesn't find the child.
"Where are you!!!" He calls out....
"This is the Callers first kidnapping and the media would eat up the fact I failed to stop the man." He thinks as he blames himself.
Sirens begin to blare in the distance as backup is about to arrive... ... ...
"There's a woman dead and a baby missing! The woman is in the dinning room straight ahead of the front door, Hurry!" He yells into his radio...
Looking over at the mother seeing a piece of paper on the floor.
He walks over to it seeing writing.
"So close... Looks like I'm a kidnapper now.... Good luck finding me.... And... I so enjoyed killing that sweet wife of yours. Might do it that way again. Not to the kid tho....later Max. Ps. This game is so fun.." It says.
"He was here..." Is all he can muster as the team enters.
"He was right in this house and I missed it because her son freaked over weed and ran..." He says as another officer speaks to him gently.
"Don't beat yourself up Detective, it's not your fault. He must have hid before you got her and left after you arrived." The words do little to comfort him "First day back on the job and the killer escaped taking a child..." He says as he walks away.
The chief arrives in his new lexus with a screeching of rubber as he lurches to a halt.
He quickly exits and leaves his door hanging open as he rushes into Max's face....
"I told you to stay away from this case MAX!!!!....(takes a breath)...
"If I catch any flak from my superiors, I won't suspend you.... That'd be to easy. Desk duty and an entry level demotion. The new guy will have a higher rank than you if things go my way.... Now get outta my sight...". "(Sighs)...
"This job is gonna be the death of me..." He says walking away from Max and towards the Coroner's van..... ..... .....
On the way home the detective stops by the store close to his house which is unlike him because he usually follows the same routine.
He nears the front door and he hears a kitchen timer ding loudly from behind him as his car explodes throwing him through the storefront windows as they are blown out..... .....
Alarms around the lot and others nearby create a cacophony of noise. His head pounding as his body aches, Max pushes himself up and collapses as the store manager runs over to him telling him not to move as he dials 911.... .... ....
Waking in the hospital Max recalls the feeling of the Shockwave as he flinches in phantom pain.
"Who woulda thought its like holding a ringing metal bat that hurts your hands but all over and way more intense." He thinks.
He suddenly feels tired and falls asleep.... .... .... ....
The next time he wakes, he sees a breaking news story that Jane Saltani is reporting on....
"Young toddler Accidently Shoots Serial killekidnapper ending his life and Alerting residents in the Area." The news anchor says.
Sighing to himself Max thinks about how crazy that is and laughs.
Tho he really wanted to bring the guy in. He closes his eyes to get some much needed sleep as his door opens.
Max looks up to see a man with a silenced pistol pointed at him.
"Hm. Now they think I'm dead. Funny how they just assume they got the right guy. Just like.... You did Detect... ....." Max hears but then hears no more as his end comes at just over the speed of sound....
The Caller leaves the hair of another intelligent convicted murderer that he obtained in a spot that's believable and quickly leaves.....
He disables the surveillance system and sends a virus out to any device that has received video data from the hospital.
Erasing and corrupting the systems. Leaving a master hackers finger prints on a glass from his home....
"Sorry, no witnesses." He says to the security guard as he fires... ..... ..... .... ....

2023.06.10 19:46 JoseLunaArts Cid Campeador was a mercenary. His bio could be easily turned into a mechwarrior biography.

After digging into literature, I found that the story of the legendary knight Cid Campeador, sounds to me like the story of a mercenary Mechwarrior, instead of the usual legend that shows him as a religious warrior. It does not take too much to export this story to Battletech universe, and indeed I plan to add a version of him to my Mechwarrior Destiny game at some point.
The following is a summary of "Historia Roderici" an old Spanish text that may likely be inaccessible to English speaking readers, not only because of language barrier, but also because of the ancient Spanish words that are difficult to understand even for modern Spanish speakers. You will discover that Cid Campeador was not a religious hero, but a merc.
I believe it could be used as source material to inspire a novel.
Sorry about the long read, but it still shorter than the original "Historia Roderici".
Rodrigo "Ruy" Díaz de Vivar is also known as Cid Campeador, and some people believe he was a religious hero but others see him as a mercenary. The oldest biography is "Historia Roderici" in 1190 when the Castillan warrior had passed away 80 years ago. This biography was made popular via minstrels, and it incorporated many fictional episodes that composed "Cantar del Mio Cid" around the year 1200. For example, there is no evidence that Rodrigo had 2 swords called Tisona and Colada, and a horse called Babieca. He had 2 daughters but they were not named doña Sol and doña Elvira.
Spain was invaded in the year 711 from the south and only a small strip was left at the north where Christian kings would seek a safe haven. The invaders ruling lasted for 800 years but these years also were full of internal disputes, just like in the Inner Sphere.
The war in Spain was always portrayed as a holy war, like a Jihad. This was the time where the term "pariah" was born. The non Christian rulers paid tribute called pariah to Christian kings in exchange for protection. And that was the historical context of eternal war.
Rodrigo was born in the small town of Vivar, near Burgos. His father was a low rank noble, but his mother was from the elite of nobles, daughter of count of Oviedo. The last name Diaz indicated he was son of Diego. When he was 10, his father died, and he was sent to the court of Fernando I de León, to complete his education with the sons of the king. One of the sons, Sancho turned Rodrigo into his page and became close friends. He receives high education and learned to fight. He knew how to read and write, something very uncommon.
When Rodrigo was 15 he went with don Sancho to Zaragoza, a territory which was under the protection of Fernando I de León in exchange for pariah. Ramiro I de Aragón uncle of Fernando I de León wanted the land under protection, and this is how Sancho and his "mesnadas" (forces under command of a lord) went to help. Ramiro I not only was defeated, but also died.
When Fernando I (ruler of Galicia, León and Castilla) died, he distributed his kingdom among his 5 sons instead of having a linear succession, because Alfonso, his second son, was his favorite. Sancho ruled Castilla and had the right to collect the pariah of Zaragoza. Sancho did not like the distribution of land, as he felt he should have been the heir of the whole kingdom. He entered a conflict with his siblings. Rodrigo ended up being in charge of the army of Sancho. In his first one on one match defeated the Alferez of Navarra kingdom, Jimeno Arcés. This is where he earned the title of "campeador", which means he is a master of the battlefield.
After his mother died, Sancho started war against Alfonso. Rodrigo skill surfaced among all other warriors. Sancho won the battle, but Alfonoso escaped and did not surrender as agreed. Instead, Alfonso agreed to allow Sancho to conquer Galicia ruled by his younger brother García. García was defeated and was and outcast who escaped to the taifa of Sevilla. But that did not end the war with Alfonso. In the new battle, Rodrigo skill shined again. And Alfonso was defeated once again. Alfonso was an outcast too, and he went to the taifa of Toledo. The reunification war ended. But it would last a few months.
Zamora was ruled by his sister Urraca. Many nobles gathered there and they did not embrace Sanho as the king. Urraca supported them, and supported Alfonso. Sancho sieged Zamora for months, but it did cost Sancho's life at the hands of a Zamoran warrior, and not even Rodrigo could stop that. The killer pretended to defecte from Urraca city and earned Sancho's trust. The defector Bellido Dolfos was going to show him a weak spot in the walls of Zamora, and when Sanch went to the loo, the defector took Sancho's spear and killed him. Alfonso became king. García attempted to recover his kingdom but ended in prison where he died. Alfonso married Rodrigo with doña Jimena, relative of Alfonso and apparently Rodrigo was deeply in love with her.
Rodrigo was sent to collect Paria To Sevilla, and García Ordoñez, close friend of alfonso was sent to Granada. Granada ruler asked Ordoñez to attack Sevilla and that Rodrigo had to fight García Ordoñez and made him prisoner and set him free later. García Ordoñez accused Rodrigo of stealing a portion of the pariah of Sevilla, which are believed to be the gift of Sevilla ruler to Rodrigo for defending his land.
Alfonso went to Taifa of Toledo, and Rodrigo was sick at home. There was an attack on a castle and Rodrigo reacted without asking for permission, chased the attackers who entered Toledo territory and Rodrigo took a huge loot, Alfonso was so upset because that destroyed Alfonso's plans to own Toledo without a fight. García Ordoñez presented this to Alfonso as an attempt to make people from Toledo to kill Alfonso. So Rodrigo became an outcast, and he was exiled and had to make a living. Along the road, many men joined him. He went to Zaragoza to offer his services. Now Zaragoza should not have to pay pariah to different kingdoms for protection.
This contradicts the jihadist nature of Rodrigo as a religious warrior. After the ruler of Zaragoza died, his 2 sons also fought. Rodrigo stood in the side of Zaragoza, and the opponent sought help among the kings in the north. The enemy forces outnumbered Rodrigo's but he defeated them in the battle of Almenar.
An uncle of the ruler of Zaragoza, who was prisoner of Alfonso, earned the trust of the alcalde who controlled the prison, so the alcalde passed the message to Alfonso. The uncle offered him the castle of Zaragoza in exchange for paying the pariah to Alfonso. So Alfonso marched towards Zaragoza. But Alfonso this time was not ahead of the forces. He sent scouts who were killed. It seems that the uncle died while the expedition was on its way to Zaragoza, so the alcalde had the idea of becoming an ally of Zaragoza and tried to kill king Alfonso.
Later Alfonso met Rodrigo and Rodrigo told that he had no part in that betrayal, and Alfonso and Rodrigo went back to normal relations without hard feelings.
Alfonso managed to conquer Toledo and that meant a raise in the pariah for other taifas. But religious fundamentalist fanatics from northern Africa were asked to help and their fanatism made them fearsome. Alfonso had Zaragoza under siege, and Rodrigo did not want to fight Alfonso. But news came from the new invaders and the siege stopped. Then the battle of Sagrajas came, where Alfonso suffered a defeat. Alfonso had to escape to save his life. Rodrigo went to Toledo to offer his services to Alfonso.
Alfonso commissioned Rodrigo to take care of the invaders and conquer lands, and to collect the pariah from Zaragoza, which had Rodrigo working as a merc for 6 years.
But good relations did not last. During a campaign Rodrigo was supposed to reinforce Alfonso's forces, but Rodrigo did not arrive. Rodrigo was exiled for second time after García Ordoñez made the king feel betrayed. Alfonso took his property and made his family prisoner. Rodrigo begged and his family was set free. And he became a warlord in Valencia and fought against both sides.
Rodrigo suffered an attack and he took revenge against García Ordoñez and led an expedition to do exactly that and looted along his way. Alfonso gave away these lands and no one wanted to fight Rodrigo. Now the only enemies of Rodrigo were the invaders in the south who attacked Valencia and killed its ruler. Rodrigo sieged the city and help did not arrive so they surrendered, and Rodrigo self proclaimed himself prince.
The invader Almoraviles forces were obsessed with taking Valencia. And epic battles took place.

2023.06.10 19:44 YuiSendou Crime and Punishment in Union

I feel like I don't have a good handle on how Union handles criminals. This is relevant, because in an upcoming session it's very likely that my PCs, who are Union forces, will capture some pirates on a frontier area (~6 months nearlight realtime from nearest other system), and I want to have a good answer to what will happen to them after, that keeps with the flavor of the setting.
The Crime: the pirates have killed several (less than 10) people from a non-Union state, destroyed important but not critical infrastructure, and stolen a large load of valuable commodities. The non-Union state is being nice and willing to turn them over to Union's justice, because relations are frosty at best and their own justice system is abhorrent to Union. For a handful of pirates, they'd rather buy friendlier relations. There is an HA colony in the system as well where the pirates can be sent.
I think an appropriate answer, that keeps with the Union Pillars, is roughly as follows. First they spend some time in the HA colony, where they cannot die of poverty but they won't have a fun time. They may work a crummy job if they choose, or a nice one if they get in touch with certain ethically compromised officials. Then, when outbound transit is available, they get a nearlight trip to what passes for a prison, where your movement is limited, your mail is read, but the confinement area is like, house arrest to a nice mansion. Sometimes a guy comes through and lectures you on philosophy, you can hold a job if you want to, or study something, and then eventually your term is up. Then you're free to go wherever, starting off from Metropolitan space. - which is nice enough to get most people to quit any crimes of profit.
This is an attempt to try to square the image of Union as a utopian good guy, with no secret brainwashing programs or w.e., with the need to...do something to bad actors other than just shooting them in the face. It does notably leave open the door for committed political criminals to come back and try again, which is a fun storytelling opportunity!
What other ideas do people have? How have you approached it in your games?

Me and my girlfriend went to thailand last 3days. On first day everything is alright and i didn’t feel unsafe or something that will make me uncomfortable it was all good in the first day. On the second day it was a long day after visiting temples and we went to a local dispensary named Herb Dispensary right after you exit the BTS train in Nana station. The staffs are two people and they did assist me pretty well and they were really kind and accomodating. The girl offered me to taste the strain of the one im buying in their smoking room. I didn’t hesitate because it was convincing that she’s a good happy person and the other staff brought the bong and the weed i bought. He even offered me to grind my weed before i hit the bong. The moment i hit the bong somethings off, it has different taste and didnt feel right. But i didnt feel anything yet after i took it and the moment i stepped outside the shop with my girlfriend, everything is vivid and i felt like im daydreaming. I started getting paranoid and my heart is beating fast. We decided to ride a tuktuk because i cant feel myself and im starting to melt. While walking to ride a tuktuk, i saw myself getting crushed in a bus thats coming and i felt it. I was hallucinating and paranoid and i can feel and hear what im thinking that time. The moment i entered the tuktuk im inside a 3rd person view and im the universe. My heart is beating really fast and everything is distorted. I cant focus on reality and i keep melting and i felt like im dying. My girlfriend keeps talking to me and assuring me that im fine. I told her that the staff in the dispensary put other substance in my weed. I told her that i feel like im on a dmt trip. i’ve never tried dmt and im afraid to do it from the stories on what ive heard about it. It was 2hrs until we get back in the hotel and from what i can remember everything happened in just 10minutes. We didnt figure out yet what was the susbtance the staff added and i cant feel my body, my hands are sweating and im getting cold. My lips turned into gray and i thought im dying so we rushed in the emergency room. Im still tripping while rushing in the er and everything went fine but i was traumatized and wasnt ready for that trip. Without my consent the staffs added Ayahuasca in my weed and they let me rip it in their bong. How did i know it was Ayahuasca? i brought back my leftover in the dispensary. When i inspected it i notice a little wood stem or root mixed in the weed the staff grinded. They sabotaged me and im lucky because im not new on psychedelics ( i have experience in lsd / shrooms. ) Imagine if you were just a pothead that doesn’t have any idea about psychedelics and suddenly someone sabotaged you and you saw yourself melting and depersonalized im pretty sure they wont come back in their real senses. Beware of trying new things on other countries and never trust anyone easily, it was a lesson for me and im still recovering right now from the trauma i’ve experience.

2023.06.10 19:40 shinydewott Dead Rising 2 OTR steam port input bug

I have played OTR on my PS3 years ago, so when I saw it was on sale a few days ago, I was excited to buy it.
The game looks good and runs decent-ish, but the controls are awful. I had 2 attempts at playing now, I don’t want to spend too much time because I might just refund the damn thing if I can’t fix it. On my first attempt, the interaction button “E” worked fine with picking up weapons or using the camera but it wouldn’t let me open doors or talk with people, meaning I was stuck on the elevator scene. I had to start over because I couldn’t open the bathroom door before the picture taking scene and couldn’t save, and this time the interactions worked fine, but WASD keys all made me walk forward rather than strafe or walk backwards. I could only turn around by aiming, which was really annoying. In both instances I kept rapidly swapping through items as well, making having more than one item annoying and unusable
I haven’t been able to find ANYTHING about this online, so I hope someone here can help me
Thanks, and have a good day

2023.06.10 19:39 Astronomical_loser AITA for wanting to wear my hair curly?

I’m an early high schooler and a black girl who has been wearing her hair straight for as long as I can remember, thanks to my mom’s insistence. Recently, I’ve become curious about what my natural hair can do and want to embrace my curls. However, my mom is resistant to the idea, citing reasons like my hair texture not being suitable, potential shrinkage, and my sister’s past hair damage from going natural. She believes it’s too late for me and suggests I’d have to shave my head to start over.
I disagree with my mom’s reasoning. Currently, my hair is growing at an extremely slow rate and struggling to retain length throughout the school year. My mom attributes this to me not leaving my hair alone and having dry ends. But when I apply grease to moisturize, she criticizes how it looks and feels. Even when I let my hair down during a blowout, she insists on putting it up, claiming it’s just a phase.
It’s confusing and frustrating because my mom never acknowledges that the regular heat styling she uses on my hair could be a contributing factor. I’m almost certain it is. The front sections of my hair are heat damaged and practically fried, yet she continues to straighten and curl my bangs against my wishes. Sometimes she opts for blow-drying instead, even though she has never taught me how to style it that way, leaving me feeling lost.
At the end of the school year, my hair is stuck in a state of limbo. I’ve been experimenting with different styles, including low buns, ponytails, and attempts at a braid-out. A few days ago, my mom called me into her room for a conversation that turned into a half-hour session of her berating me about my hair. She claimed it wasn’t retaining length and insisted that I needed to move it around more, contradicting her previous advice to leave it alone.
During our argument, I explained to her that I wanted to wear my hair in its natural state. I expressed how much I disliked having it straight and feeling like I had no control over my own hair. However, she firmly maintained that I couldn’t wear it that way, repeating the earlier reasons with frustration and claiming it’s simply not in my genes.
To my relief, my sister backed me up, expressing her disagreement with our mom. She pointed out that heat styling has always been the norm for us, and we never had the chance to embrace our natural curls. In response, my mom suggested blow-drying and using straws if we wanted curly hair so badly. Feeling exasperated, I sighed, and my sister said we shouldn’t have to go to such lengths. My mom dismissively said she was going to bed, closed her eyes, and waited for us to leave.
Leaving the room, I felt angry and annoyed at my mom’s unwillingness to understand. All I want is for my hair to be healthy. Am i advocating for myself? or just being a stubborn teenagers?
(i asked ch at gpt to revise this to be shorter, that’s why it’s written like a british scholar lol)

2023.06.10 19:39 leafisnotaplant It's getting harder everyday to explain to our clients they have no other options

So I work for an insurance broker based in California. I started on customer service and recently got promoted to key account manager (which means I basically overlook the customer service team, review policies that are renewing or cancelling, assign tasks and deal with underwriting issues), but currently they're understaffed so I'm pretty much doing both jobs at the same time until they find someone to replace my spot in customer service. What I'm trying to get at here is that I both still receive calls from our clients and also get to see all of the renewals that are upcoming... And boy these renewals. Right now there's a crisis with insurance, I don't know about other states but in California auto insurance is just a mess right now. All companies are increasing their prices drastically, many companies are not accepting new business and the ones that do only offer liability, and also some companies are just closing business in California and slowly non-renewing all the policies, and on top of that companies are changing their billing plans to be 25% down on renewals. If someone has a claim or a point in their record it's gonna be impossible to find another company that'll take them and their current one is definitely gonna increase the price to a ridiculous amount because these companies are literally trying to get people to cancel their policies. They don't want more clients and they don't want the ones that have a risk of getting in an accident to stay with them.
Everyday it's just harder to have to tell that to our clients. I've seen policies go from $1,000 for six months to $4,000. The other day I saw one where the client was paying like $900 for six months and on the renewal just the first payment is gonna be over $1,000. And I say is because there is no other option. We've had so many clients say "well if you can't find me something else then I will on my own" and then they come back and pay the renewal because they didn't find anything on their end either. At this point we're telling them yes, please look for other options on your end and if you find something we'll gladly assist you with cancelling your renewal, but please make sure you've closed the deal with the other company first cause if you cancel now and don't find anything else, opening a new policy is gonna be really expensive and most likely you'll only find liability. Clients that had one car on their policy and don't have it anymore are keeping those policies active until they get a new car in like two or three months because they fear if they cancel they won't find a good deal when they need insurance again.
It's just really frustrating on all ends. I understand how difficult it is for our clients and trust me we do all that's in our power. Reviewing each policy carefully, making sure they have all the discounts they can apply for, making sure the annual mileage is calculated correctly, offering to increase deductibles to reduce the price a little and if you have an old car with comprehensive and collision we advice it's not really worth it and to remove that coverage. But in the end all those things only go so far, yeah it may reduce the price by like $500 max, but it's still gonna be a lot more expensive now. So it's frustrating in that sense, but also the clients blame us for this when we have nothing to do with the pricing. The amount of people who have cursed at me the past couple months is insane. And I understand they're upset, and they have a right to be upset, but it's so draining to get yelled at for something you have no control over.

2023.06.10 19:39 NewRapIsLargelyTrash Yea if the mods are gonna be inconsistent powertrippers, I'm out. ✌🏾 it's been fun

It's been fun, boys. Discussing all things rap, cracking jokes, getting serious, and everything in between with you guys. This has been one of the most enjoyable and active subs in reddit.
Recently the mods have finally come back from the dead to try to "improve the sub". So check it out, go look through the sub recently. It's so "improved" lol. They just delete what they don't like. These mods are just powertripping now that WE, the actual regular USERS of the subs(not the people who leave their accounts for years at an time) made this sub what it is. We grew it, and we self managed it. We fostered a community where open discussion was prioritized. Bullshit got downvoted, good shit got upvoted. Mods allowed scat porn to sit on this sub for months, but removed my post asking a serious question about discrimination in hip hop. Mods removed polls but allow scat porn? Mods removed a video of a hip hop violinist but allow scat porn to sit for months?
That's the kind of incompetence that would get you fired in the real world.
Yea if Mods are gonna be powertripping through every post, this sub is officially never gonna be fun again. Clearly the mod who deleted my post is trying to control the discussion and push an agenda. I'm off to better rap spaces, because I would rather not live under the rule of these sensitive, powertripping, little-d!ck-having, deadbeat, lowlife, need-to-mind-ya-business, mods.
Happy Juneteenth, thanks for the ban! Gfys. Good luck trying to turn this sub into your sh!tty vision. Kinda like a deadbeat dad who wants to hang with his kid after the kid grows up and becomes rich. Pathetic. You're the dogsh!t scum underneath my shoe and you have 0 personality

2023.06.10 19:37 fooddiefirst Pole dancing scratches that itch

In case it helps anyone out there, I have finally found something that personally scratches that itch when my partner has no desire for months at a time. Pole dancing classes (pole work, floor work, chair dance etc) give me a channel for sexual expression that is completely independent from my partner. It feels so good to feel sexy, strong and fierce on my own terms, and look in the mirror in the pole studio and "want myself". I've been going almost every day, and if I miss a day, feel that "urge" coming on. But I know I can always schedule my next class in my workout app, and know exactly the next time I'll get my fix. It helps so much with regaining my sexuality, feeling some sexual fulfillment, and regaining some control in the relationship. Usually the low desire partner controls the relationship, but now I can control whether or not I'm getting turned on when my partner tries to cuddle with me (just to completely ignore me if I try to get more passionate) ! We tried sex therapy together for 2 years, and while it improved our relationship, it didn't make a dent in our sex life. I kept wishing for some tea or pill to kill my libido, because masturbation just didn't scratch that itch for me. I'm so grateful to have discovered pole dancing so I can finally feel some relief and release, and no longer put any sexual pressure on our relationship. I'm hoping one day he might want to have more sex, but until then I feel somewhat confident that the pole will finally be enough. This post is not an invitation for DMs, but I'm hoping to help some women (or possibly men can pole dance too) stuck in the same boat as me. Hope y'all find some relief.
More context: My partner and I have been together for close to 12 years. We had a great sex life for the first year, and then our frequency died down to once every 1 or 2 months. We were both students at the time and realized he had trouble feeling desire when he was stressed, which was the norm througout his undergrad and grad school years. I had maintained the same level of desire as at the beginning of the relationship, but he would decline when I tried to initiate sex, or pretend like he didn't know I was initiating. Finally 9 years into the relationship he got to a point where he was no longer stressed out regularly, but our sex life still didn't improve. With a lot of persuasion, he finally agreed for us to go sex therapy. It helped the relationship a lot, but not the sex life. Was at wits end because I didn't want to cheat or break up, and I couldn't find any medical interventions to help me. The next closest thing that works for me scratching that itch is kickboxing or martial arts, but it didn't hit in quite the same way, and partner wouldn't let me hang a punching bag at home to vent. Pole dancing is a revelation and a god-send!

2023.06.10 19:37 Sure_Temporary8411 BEWARE IN THAILAND

Me and my girlfriend went to thailand last 3days. On first day everything is alright and i didn’t feel unsafe or something that will make me uncomfortable it was all good in the first day. On the second day it was a long day after visiting temples and we went to a local dispensary named Herb Dispensary right after you exit the BTS train in Nana station. The staffs are two people and they did assist me pretty well and they were really kind and accomodating. The girl offered me to taste the strain of the one im buying in their smoking room. I didn’t hesitate because it was convincing that she’s a good happy person and the other staff brought the bong and the weed i bought. He even offered me to grind my weed before i hit the bong. The moment i hit the bong somethings off, it has different taste and didnt feel right. But i didnt feel anything yet after i took it and the moment i stepped outside the shop with my girlfriend, everything is vivid and i felt like im daydreaming. I started getting paranoid and my heart is beating fast. We decided to ride a tuktuk because i cant feel myself and im starting to melt. While walking to ride a tuktuk, i saw myself getting crushed in a bus thats coming and i felt it. I was hallucinating and paranoid and i can feel and hear what im thinking that time. The moment i entered the tuktuk im inside a 3rd person view and im the universe. My heart is beating really fast and everything is distorted. I cant focus on reality and i keep melting and i felt like im dying. My girlfriend keeps talking to me and assuring me that im fine. I told her that the staff in the dispensary put other substance in my weed. I told her that i feel like im on a dmt trip. i’ve never tried dmt and im afraid to do it from the stories on what ive heard about it. It was 2hrs until we get back in the hotel and from what i can remember everything happened in just 10minutes. We didnt figure out yet what was the susbtance the staff added and i cant feel my body, my hands are sweating and im getting cold. My lips turned into gray and i thought im dying so we rushed in the emergency room. Im still tripping while rushing in the er and everything went fine but i was traumatized and wasnt ready for that trip. Without my consent the staffs added Ayahuasca in my weed and they let me rip it in their bong. How did i know it was Ayahuasca? i brought back my leftover in the dispensary. When i inspected it i notice a little wood stem or root mixed in the weed the staff grinded. They sabotaged me and im lucky because im not new on psychedelics ( i have experience in lsd / shrooms. ) Imagine if you were just a pothead that doesn’t have any idea about psychedelics and suddenly someone sabotaged you and you saw yourself melting and depersonalized im pretty sure they wont come back in their real senses. Beware of trying new things on other countries and never trust anyone easily, it was a lesson for me and im still recovering right now from the trauma i’ve experience.

2023.06.10 19:35 Key-Front392 I (F18) cheated on my toxic ex (M19) with my manager and have been harassed for months

I (f18) was in a relationship for a year and a half with my ex (m19). He was very very insecure. He was a virgin when we met and I was far from it. He took it out on me constantly. He blamed me for getting physically assaulted by a man before we met because I slept with him. He ruined my 18th birthday by accusing me of cheating with my friend because her middle name is my first name. Bare in mind she was my ONLY friend. And he was critical of her for no reason. Making jokes about her weight and such. And a friend I made later who was transgender he was extremely rude about her and wouldn’t let me see her because he viewed her as a man, and I wasn’t allowed to be near men.
He made me cry constantly and wouldn’t listen or care. I have ASD and I’ve always been very naive when people hit on me. The problem was he constsntly shamed me and controlled what I could do. So I didn’t take it as a oh he cares I took it as a wow what a bad person. So I defintiely talked to people who liked me a lot and didn’t really realise and I feel bad but I wish we’d had good communication. I tried to have it so many times and talked very openly about what upset me and why but he wouldn’t do that.
Later on in our realtionship he snapped at me for no reason and screamed at me in public, cussing me out and made me cry and starting punching walls and threatening to leave me alone there (he was my lift and we weren’t near home). What caused this? Me asking to pee hahah. I left him for one day and inevitably ended up being the one to beg for him back. During the day we were apart I was trying to sext other people to get my mind off it and move on but I couldn’t, ofc I undersrnad how this puts people off getting back together. I’ve used my body for attention for years and it’s not healthy. But we got back when we shoudlnt have. I wasn’t happy.
He always bought me things and took me places. Comforted me and bought me things when I was on my period or sad. Took me on dates and paid for everything. The occasional insults and anger outbursts and controlling behaviours were not all the time. I’m not close with my parents and have 2 friends who I’m not rlly close with. So this is a lot to me and it was hard to leave because I’ve never met someone who could put up with me.
I got a new manager at work (m29) who immedaitely took interest in me. I was very disgusted at first, I have a history of sexual harassment at my workplace being the only girl and dealing with old men as customers all day as well. We eventually became sorta friends and talked a lot over text. Looking back it was weird but I don’t really have many friends and it seemed genuine. I hate how naive I am but I still view him as nice and more genuine than anyone else sometimes.
One night we had a staff do. Both drunk, me and my manager flirted over text after. Not in person once. I felt disgusting about it. I kept saying I can’t because of my boyfriend and I don’t like my manager at all. But it happened. I told my bf within an hour and broke up with him. I was glad we were over and I had an excuse (I knew what I did would mean we’d break up and honestly I think that’s partly why I did it) He came over to my house and started throwing my stuff, snatched my phone, filmed a video of me crying to send to his friend saying “look at the wh0r3” over and over saying how I don’t deserve to be loved and even called his friend so they could degrade me together and threatening screaming at me so loud my parents were going to call the police. It was scary. He went straight to my workplace right after to scream at and threaten them. Within a day he came back to my house to ask for forgiveness. I turned him away as I was still shaken.
After we broke up, I went on a date with my manager. He was talking to me every day and letting me cry about missing my ex over the phone. I thought he really cared for me more than anyone ever has to let me do that when he likes me. I’ve never had that support in my life. But looking back that might be naivety. It’s probably stupid that I’m still not sure. I still think he cares more than anyone else but he’s almsot 30 and I’m 18 and he wanted to sleep with me. But still I’m not sure. I went to his house after and I wasn’t rlly sure on sex. I’m not at all attracted to him and the age gap is weird. I Saïd no at first but he really wanted to and I was physcially aroused so I said he can just touch me but I am not comfy doing anything back.
Long story short he ended up giving me head because he really wanted to and I didn’t see the harm in refusing because well it’s just free pleasure right? I don’t know why I’ve always had that mindset because the sex I had with my ex was so passionate and intimate and I truly can’t enjoy casual sex with people I don’t care about after that. Looking back the age gap and my lack of self respect to firmly say no makes me feel sick. But I was still single and it wasn’t really overly willingly
My ex has come back to me so many times. Every time it starts off the same. He makes a new account or even showed up at my house before. He’s bought me many gifts since we broke up to get me back. Every time I let him back in, tell him how sorry I am and let him insult me to blow off steam and comfort him. And he cuddles and tells me he Loves me and gets me food. Then he has sex with me. And then within a day tells me how disgusting for getting with my manager. Bear in mind he’s been with another girl since we broke up as well. He’s fully harassed me for almost 5 months now and can never leave me alone more than a week. Well tell me he wanted to murder me then 3 days later message all of my friends to beg to see me and bring flowers. And I feel so much guilt for what happened that I keep letting him back but he’s extremely verbally abusive. I just always feel I deserve it because of what happened and let him blow of the steam.
I judt don’t know what to think. I know I’m in the wrong. And I know the guilt and disgust I feel is the result of my own actions. But being so lonely now with no friends and awkward at my job as well as being harassed reguarly is so hard. He always makes new accounts and it’s so hard to shut him down when he pretends to wsnt me to lead me on because I feel so much guilt. I know how awful he is deep down but I don’t know how to move on when I’m far from the victim in this situation. It’s hard to stop responding when I messed up. But the harassment and making me feel I deserve to die and whatnot with zero support in my life outside of my manager who I’d rather not use as support is difficult. Man relationships are complex. I’m not asking for sympathy btw I know what I did was very crappy.
TL;DR I cheated on my toxic ex to leave him and I let my older manager use my body and I’ve been harassed by my ex for months on end

2023.06.10 19:34 555-quick-rat I don't want to do this anymore

I haven't worked since February, I apply for jobs and get interviews but they never go anywhere. I was laid off from a job that instilled false trust (never going to be naive like that again). My relationship is turning absolutely loveless but I share my apartment with my partner so me going on my own isn't even possible while I don't have a job, so the fights just get worse. I'm pretty certain I'm developing agoraphobia by the amount of panic and anxiety I get leaving my apartment to do basic things. This is not what I wanted out of my life but I'm so brain fogged by burn out and medications that I can't even figure out what I do want.
My suicidal ideations are getting out of control and it's only been 4 months. I start formulating notes in my head and consider how I would want to end it. I've dealt with ideations for over half my life but they've never been so serious and so present like they are now.
If I run out of my savings or come up on my lease renewal and have to live with my parents again, I don't think I even want to bother to continue living. I worked so hard for years to get to where I was just for a company to treat me disposable and crumble the little bit of motivation I had to keep going. The idea of starting from 0 is so exhausting.

2023.06.10 19:34 AviatorByrd It should be illegal for kids under the age of 10 to carry around a tablet or smartphone.

My cousin had a daughter in 2013 and soon gave her daughter a tablet. It always made me super dooper uncomfortable to see her latched on to a tablet whenever she came over. She now has three kids, two of them almost completely void of personalities and one on the spectrum. They were both given tablets at a young age. I also have another cousin in Canada who was left in front of the TV so her mom wouldn't be bothered. She's now 21, on the spectrum, and super dooper weird.
I saw a dad waiting at an airport with his two kids holding phones and tablets of their own. I went to a family doctor a few days ago and there were a few kids holding phones. I had to wait three freaking hours and for every minute of them, I was fuming and wanted to scream at the parents asking them to turn it down. The inconsideration of forcing everyone in the waiting room to listen to loud children's shows is one thing, but it made me cry inside to see children's mental health and attention span being sacrificed just so they won't bother their parents. WHY TF DID YOU HAVE KIDS IF YOU ARE GOING TO ZOMBIFY THEM LIKE THIS!?!?

2023.06.10 19:33 Clickd__ GameSense Sonar (Collectors Edition) Review !

Hey guys, I want to get into reviewing pads as I have been collecting and using them for years now. I received this pad from Gamesense to help with feedback and I am allowed to make a review on it! This will not affect my opinions, and I would have been perfectly ok with purchasing the pad up front or afterwords to make this review :)

I want to get straight into the meat of this pad so specs and details will be at the end ->

The Sonar: aka the balance glass pad. In the age of speed, where aimers crave light weight, less friction, more speed and raw aim, this pad comes as a breath of fresh air.
While this statement may come across as a little controversial, I think it is excellent that Gamesense is bringing something different to the market than another speed pad. Do not let this fool you into thinking this a slow pad however, as it is still made of glass, and provides that low initial/static friction that glass pads are synonymous with.
What is does bring, is control in the form of dynamic friction and stopping power. Comparing this pad to Skypad 2.0 and 3.0 is has quite a different surface. Not necessarily to the feel, as by hand it is closer to the Skypad 3.0 surface.
But in terms of its feeling through the mouse is where this pad sets itself apart. Where the Skypad can feel like my mouse is floating and gliding, I feel locked in on this surface. As if my mouse is ON the surface, not merely gliding over it.
This gives an initial feeling of almost roughness through the mouse skates, similar to a an almost Hien like feedback. This is a feeling that lessons over time and I feel as though the pad does have a small break in period, of a few days or a week.
Once past this, the micro corrections inherit the glass pad property of being in your control, light and low friction. The beauty of this pad comes into its sweeps, tracking and flicks. It stops on a dime, which seems as though it contradicts its low initial friction, but in practice does not.
I find it most prevalent on a 75 degree or more flick, where I quickly swipe my mouse and lock into the target, something in which I struggle with on the Skypad due to its incredibly fast and smooth nature. In this way, during fast movements, the Sonar acts as a sort of controlled pad, which not inheriting the muddy or inconsistent nature of a plush cloth pad.
This means on every motion I get the same, unchanging experience. Flick-stop, flick-stop, switch-switch-switch.
Lets talk about tracking. I have been playing less tracking heavy games of late (CS and Valorant), but just to test this aspect of the pad I have done some tracking sessions in Kovaak's. While my previous comments have indicated that the strong suit of this pad is its controlled stopping power, that does not mean it is bad at tracking by any means.
Most tracking consists of smooth, slower motion, prioritizing accuracy instead of speedy target acquisition. Here once again the pad excels. With the exception of a truly speed based cloth pad(Artisan Raiden for example) the tracking offered by this pad is well inline with fast hybrid offerings.
I would not say it is "as good" at tracking as a Skypad, IF you have immaculate mouse control or crave a friction-less experience. I think for everyone but the speediest of demons, this pad offers a level of tracking far beyond their own capabilities, and will not be a hard ceiling to their mouse control skill.

Final overall thoughts regarding the pad:
Things I like
I like the design of both this pad and the regular black version. I think it offers something unique and eye pleasing, which I think is important in a pad. I prefer a simple design, with well thought out colors, and I think both variants of this pad accomplish that goal. The collectors edition Minwah of Pearl some might consider garish, but I find to be quite enjoyable as it reminds me of a blanket you might find on the spare bed of your grandmothers house.
I like the control this pad offers in static and flicking type aiming. It gives me a sense of control over my mouse, while not hand holding as much as a control cloth pad.
Also the size of this pad feels great, while being 500x400 the vertical space is sufficient, somehow it feels like there is so much space horizontally, even for the low sense players. With the rounded edges it also feels very comfortable on the arm and does not cause any discomfort.

Things I don't like
The design implementation: while I do like the actual design, the way it is implemented on the glass leaves a close up feels a little blurry, and some of the characters having a sort of cloudy outline. I believe this is the case with ALL glass pad designs, as the print must shine through the surface, and it is more of a minor nitpick.
Initial Feeling: my first impressions of this pad I thought my mouse skates would start deteriorating like going over a cheese grater. It felt extremely abrasive on the mouse skates for a few day until breaking in. I believe this feeling is due to the bead blast surface, and what is in fact what gives the pad its control.
I have gotten used to it, but it did leave me a little wary at first that my skates would quickly degrade(which is common with glass pads)
My last gripe is consistent across all glass pads I have used and that is it feels terrible once I start to sweat. I live in a pretty humid environment, and my AC doesn't run full blast all the time. So during extended session as I start to warm up and build a little sweat, I just stick to this pad. However, I have experienced this with all glass pads so I won't count it against it.

Overall I enjoyed my experience with this pad. It is the most enjoyable glass pad I have used yet, especially since I don't hone my mouse control as some users, and prefer a little control in my life, even with my cloth pads. This pad fit well into my repertoire, and did not hold me back even after switching to it immediately. After the break in period, the pad does speed up a little, losing some of that "grating" feel.
All in all I would recommend this pad for any game, it offers something for all scenarios, and really lets the user decide what level of control they have over it. If you are a cloth pad user and have been looking to move to a hard surface, I would recommend this pad over Skypad, unless you are sure your mouse control would not hold you back for a significant amount of time.
My own personal opinion is that glass pads are diminishing returns, and most gamers would benefit more from coaching or vod review if they are looking to up their game, but this pad is more inline with purchasing a pad to fit your need, especially if you hate cleaning or wearing out your cloth pad.

2023.06.10 19:33 5camps Short reviews of every nation I've played as in Anbennar part 8 - Haless

Part 1 - Cannor Part 2 - Escann and Deepwoods Part 3 - Aelantir Part 4 - West Serpentspine and Gerudia Part 5 - Bulwar Part 6: The Forbidden Plains Part 7: East Serpentspine
I'm nearly at the end of these series of reviews. After Haless it's Yanshen and then that's about it. The whole continent has some of my favourite mission trees in the entire mod so I'm excited to talk about it.
Azkare -> Sunrise Empire ★★★★★
Azkare is someone staring down the multiple genocidal campaigns across Anbennar, and indeed across regular human history, and asking themselves how they would design a campaign where you are the Good Guy. One where the end goal is to create a truly equal state that values all its citizens. It’s an interesting design issue since empire-building has certain inherent traits that are really hard to present as being a “good” option. Gee Hiderion, what are you going to do when one of your internal states votes for independence huh? Just going to march in an army to crush the rebels? How many millions must die for you to achieve your “dream” Hiderion? You can answer these questions during your questioning at The Hague! Or wherever they try war criminals in Anbennar.
Playing it though, it’s great fun. Sure it’s another Haless state that is simply based around conquering everything, but the mechanic on how you integrate them all into this single parliament is pretty neat. It feels like messy internal politics, which I enjoyed from a role-playing perspective. It’s wild that this much effort went into a single nation’s mission tree too, and one you absolutely never see created in-game by the AI. I have some nitpicky problems. While the writing is generally good, I think the author tried to write a short piece of romantic fiction at one point that felt so out of place it bordered on comedic. Also the end of the mission tree has such silly requirements that I didn’t even bother trying. But it’s overall one of the most complete trees in the entire game and would be one of the first ones I’d point a new player towards.
Plus, so long as you embrace the roleplay of being Hiderion, the guy with the biggest Elf Savior complex in the entire world, it is neat to imagine yourself crushing the previous horrid regimes across Haless and rebuild them in your vision of equality and tolerance. Bhuvari are slavers, Verkal Ozovar want to mind control the whole continent into subservience, and do you really think everyone would be better off under The Command? If Haless had to be united, Sunrise Empire would probably be the best option. Just don’t ask the Oni that question.
Fengwuzhe -> One Xia ★★★★
I know a lot of people play EU4 because they love to watch numbers go up. Stack modifiers on top of modifiers and watch as your god soldiers destroy armies 3 times their size. I am not that sort of player. I legitimately have no idea what army tradition does. The only number that matters to me is the size of the army. If I have more soldiers, I should win the battle. If I don’t, it’s probably a bug and should be patched. That all said, there was something about marching around as this death squad of militant harpy combat monks as One Xia that tickled a little part of my brain, giggling as I watched The Command flee in terror despite outnumbering me.
What made it all the more satisfying is the challenge it was to get there. As Xia, you are one of the first ports of call against the might of The Command. That’s another part I love about Anbennar that other people seem not to: I love fighting The Command. It’s a race against time as they gobble their neighbours, as you frantically build up a force capable of taking them on. Once they do turn on you, there might as well be that “Objective: Survive” popup. It’s interesting to play a game of EU4 and actually lose a war and have to figure out how to rebuild so you’ll be able to take on those hobgobbos if they attack again.
The actual story of the nation was a bit lost on me. I liked the design of the mission tree and how it forced you to really drill your troops to progress, which was a neat change of pace for me. But what their nation actually fought for and believed in wasn’t terribly well portrayed. Maybe because I don’t have a lot of experience with the genre of fiction they’re based off. Also man is the Blue Scarf Rebellion such a weird disaster. Only pops at a point where you’ve basically already won the game. A huge amount of effort into a very forgettable disaster that I very nearly didn’t see because I had reached the standard boring EU4 end-game by that point.
Verkal Ozovar ★★★★★
One of the coolest things in Anbennar is how they’ll take specific mechanics from the base EU4 game, warp it into something new, then re-contextualise what that new mechanic represents. Escann is the best example of this when it comes to the design of an entire region with how they repackage the native migration mechanics. What Verkal Ozovar does for vassal gameplay is so utterly wild and creative and I had a truly fantastic time with it.
The whole conceit is that you remain as this single province hold for the entire game, but through a series of vassals, and a very heavy focus on vassal loyalty increases, gain control over all of Haless. Early on you’re playing what seems like a fairly standard game, albeit heavily vassal-focused. But as your vassals start to dwarf (heh) your single province, it becomes a game unto itself of how does one maintain loyalty while progressing through the mission tree.
I’ll give you a few examples of the stuff I would do to maintain loyalty. I would declare war and then never move my troops from the capital because keeping them alive was more important for loyalty purposes than using them for the war. I would declare wars entirely for the purpose of draining my own vassal’s armies and manpower so they couldn’t build up a large enough force to want to rebel against me. It’s evil in a whole other way than how EU4 and Anbennar usually enforces it through “click the genocide button”, and it really fed into the themes of the story. These totalitarian, mind-control dwarfs, who seek to subjugate the people around them so they swear absolute loyalty, all while never having the capacity to ever resist you.
I literally had a notebook next to me of my vassal’s dev sizes so I could keep track of how large they were getting and dole out new provinces accordingly so none would get too large. The final end reward of having the capability to ensure total vassal loyalty is the best end-game reward in the whole game, because suddenly I was free to grow however much I wanted. I declared on the Lake Fed then just left the game on x5 speed and watched as my combined vassals experienced 3 million deaths in attrition and still won the war. My computer may have hated me for it. The end game of Ozovar is the slowest I’ve ever seen EU4 run. But I loved the campaign and it’s a top 3 all time favourite nations to play in Anbennar.

2023.06.10 19:32 TheWatcher657 Why Alexee Will Be and Should Be Found Not Guilty. Case Analysis. The Real Guilty Parties Exposed. Long Read.

Hello. I know just from reading the title you are likely seething with rage and hate for Alexee. Likely you have already down voted this post. I am appalled by the number of people having already convicted Alexee and now want her lynched.
I am equally appalled by the amount of video the public has access too. This has tainted public opinion and makes it almost impossible she will be afforded a fair and unbiased trial based on actual evidence introduced in court. All of the surveillance video from inside the hospital should never have been released. This violates Hippa Laws and a patient's Right to Privacy. "When you use security cameras in a healthcare environment, the video footage that you record qualifies as PHI. As PHI, video surveillance footage must be protected according to HIPAA regulations.Jun 10, 2021"
Alexee was experiencing an acute medical and mental health emergency and the release / leak of hospital video violates her right to doctor patient confidentiality. For those whose blood is boiling what if this was inside an abortion clinic and a teenager was violated by the release of videos in a patient treatment area? Protesters would be enraged and demand action--where is the outrage here?
Based on the facts as currently known (no discovery yet just what is in public domain and can be verified) this is how I would defend Alexee during a trial. I ask you to consider all of the following:
--Innocence until proven guilty in a court of law--the cornerstone of our legal system and society.
I strenuously argue and expect the following be inadmissible and excluded from trial:
>All video of Alexee inside the patient treatment areas of the hospital--both security cameras and police body cameras excluded .
>Police bodycam footage from inside Alexee's treatment room should be Hippa protected. She has the expectation of doctor patient confidentiality. Police knew there was no crime actively happening inside the hospital room at the moment they entered. The question of IF a crime was committed already occurred in the toilet room previous to police arrival and there was no flight risk from Alexee in a hospital room with one way in and out.
Police violated her civil rights by entering her medical treatment room while Alexee was in a hospital bed. Further police by entering her hospital room delayed urgent medical care Alexee required and placed undue stressors on her during a critical moment when per the statements of the doctor she was hemorrhaging.
>At no point was she read her Miranda Rights. Any statements made during an acute medical and mental health crisis inside a treatment room without her being advised of her Miranda Rights cannot be used against her at trial.
--During all video of her in her treatment room and patient hallway areas--as has been so far illegally released to the public violating her Hippa rights-- Alexee was under the influence of pain medicine administered by the hospital.
Pain medicine alters how Alexee feels, her body's sensations, perception of said sensations, mental acuity, mental state, memory and cognitive ability--this is the whole purpose of pain medications. These are indisputable and known scientific facts for decades which have proven pain medications cause all of these reactions which is why every single pain med has strict warnings not to operate machinery, not to drive Et cetera, Et cetera, Et cetera........ (For those attacking Alexee as mentally deficient, "slow", retarded, "mentally off" and / or view her reactions as not appropriate the hospital had her hopped up on pain medications before she even went to the bathroom. I say shame on anyone convicting her in the court of public opinion under the influence of medication(s) and during an acute medical and mental health crisis.
>Purported pictures of Alexee with her cheer leading team in the grey shirt and holding the megaphone in her uniform. These pictures are all over the internet and have not been verified as authentic. I believe there is a high likelihood these particular pictures have been photo-shopped making them altered fakes. There are multiple indicators of the two most widely distributed photos showing they are not authentic.
The person who took said pictures, origin of the pictures, original metadata and chain of custody of these photos must be discovered and questioned. Once the absolute original files have been discovered, if they even exist, they need to be independently analyzed by a digital photography expert.
I ask everyone to please put the videos you have seen out of your mind as well as it should and will likely be for the jury during the trial. I ask you to consider the following facts as we understand them at this juncture. Use only the following facts to determine if there is any reasonable doubt concerning Alexee and what happened. Even a scintilla of doubt or uncertainty means Alexee should be adjudicated not guilty by a court.
During a trial I argue the following in defense of Alexee:
>Alexee is a teenager. She only recently turned 19. She is inexperienced in life, sex and relationships. Although technically an adult by a few weeks the law is contradictory. She is still in high school due to when she was born and started kindergarten. At 19 she cannot smoke cigarettes, vape or buy or drink alcohol. Society and the law has decided 19 is not old enough to make an informed decision on smoking and alcohol. Her mother treats her as a child.
>Alexee has been treated in such a way by her mother to be ashamed of teen sex and its possible consequences. Her mother despite good intentions created a relationship of shame regarding sex and loosing her virginity. Most teens and even young adults do not share intimate sexual details with theirs parents for many reasons. Consider the added stress the mother has created for years in a misguided attempt to protect her daughter.
People in general but especially children and teenagers deny they did something wrong when accused. A child is observed breaking an item and even though said child knows the parent saw her break the item often will deny they broke it when questioned. There are decades of child psychiatry and doctors to testify regarding this. Those young children grow up to be teenagers and if the parent(s) have not properly handled these learning opportunities at young ages the teenager will have--in this case 19 years--of improper responses of how to handle life.
>Alexee's mother was beaten and abused by her father so badly Alexee was born preterm with hip and spinal problems causing pain on and off her entire life. Imagine the unhealthy relationship regarding sex, men and pregnancy her mother--despite good intentions--during Alexee's life imprinted on a child and then a teen.
>Alexee was taking hormonal birth control pills. We do not know if these were prescribed for acne, menstrual problems or birth control reasons. If prescribed for acne or menstrual problems and Alexee's mom knew she was taking them this combined with her mom's many years worth of admonishment, forbidding and shaming of teen sex and her mother feeling confident her daughter was a virgin--this would create a mental assurance for her mother she could never possible be pregnant.
Likewise, regardless if Alexee was taking hormonal bc with or without her mom's knowledge she would be assured she was preventing any possibility of pregnancy and being safe. Hormonal bc is widely regarded as virtually 100% effective and the best non-surgical option for preventing an unwanted pregnancy. The Pill is the gold standard for being safe and responsible to the point it's common knowledge providing a false sense of security.
The pill is so ubiquitous as infallible even in pornographic videos it is commonplace for the teen or woman to state "pull out I'm not on the pill"--as if she was on the pill it would be 100% guaranteed safe. Teens and even adults are indoctrinated to commonly believe the pill is infallible--even in porn.
We know sex education is lacking in all public schools, her fundamentalist church certainly wasn't providing sex ed, her mom used fear, shame and abstinence as the only approach and her father was a scumbag abuser not even in her life in a meaningful way. Media targeted to teens promotes "safe sex" rarely making a point any bc can fail. It's promoted and considered as an absolute.
No matter how you consider the above facts both Alexee and her mom were very confident there was no way she could be pregnant. Taking the bc pill to Alexee was an assurance she could not become pregnant, she could not disappoint her mom--she was being safe with no risks and in a committed long term relationship. She wasn't "one of those girls" or the school slutt.
>Alexee gained some weight. Everyone knows the Pill can cause weight gain. Its the number one reason teenagers and young women state they don't want to take the pill. There is so much pressure on being thin--especially for a teenager and a high school student going to prom ect. When she noticed she gained some weight of course it was because of the bc pill. She can't be pregnant--of course not--because she's on the pill. How could she be? A quick Google search "can the pill make me gain weight" confirms its common.
If her mom knew about her being on BC this causes no alarms for her mom because not only does she believe her daughter is a virgin she's on the pill and the pill makes many women gain weight.
>Maybe--and we don't know--Alexee was on BC because of menstrual issues. If that was the case then any period irregularities would be explained by known period issues, the pill can make periods light or non-existent in many women so nothing to be worried about if she's irregular, besides irregular periods are common in teens--especially athletes, as a medical fact. It is well known many women bleed during pregnancy at the time when they expect to be having a period so think they are regularly menstruating.
There are even entire TV shows based on the woman not knowing she is pregnant--many are adults in their 30s, experienced in life and many even had previous children!! Plenty of incidents making this fairly common and plenty of respected medical doctors will testify in court to this phenomenon.
>Alexee was treated in the emergency room in December--one month prior--for back pain. The same back pain she experienced on and off her whole life--and the same back pain that would bring her to the ER the night she delivered. She would have been around 32 to 36 weeks pregnant (pregnancy full term is 40 weeks gestation even though everyone commonly thinks 9 months) and at the end of December when seen in the ER. No one, not a single medical professional noticed she was very pregnant while in the hospital four weeks prior to delivering a baby.
>Alexee tells her mom she is in pain in January and needs to go to the ER for treatment. This is significant. If Alexee knew she was pregnant and premeditated killing and hiding the baby from her mom, boyfriend and the world it makes absolutely no sense she would tell her mother she was in pain and needed to go to the hospital. If she premeditated murder and secrecy then she would not have presented herself to her mom in pain and needing medical help. Everyone has seen TV births--although not realistic--there is almost always pain and pushing and then a baby. So Alexee who has premeditated and purposely hidden 40 weeks or pregnancy fooling everyone--her mom, peers, boyfriend, coaches, teachers, nurses and doctors decides to tell her mom she needs to go to the hospital when IF she had realized she was pregnant and consciously hidden and schemed everything!?!?! This makes no sense.
We know for a fact she knew how to do things herself on the "down low". Afterall she wasn't having sex infront of her mom--she went somewhere private to do the deed. If her premeditated plan all along was to knowingly conceal........see where this is going?
>January ER visit considerations:
--Alexee's mom had three kids--makes her very experienced at pregnancy--and has no idea Alexee is pregnant.
>Alexee is seen by and triaged by a registered nurse. She does not notice she is full term and in active labor. The duty of and sole purpose of the triage nurse to identify acute medical conditions needing immediate and emergency treatment--like say heart attacks or active labor.
>Alexee is taken to a hospital exam room and seen by the intake nurse--another registered nurse-- who's duty is and is trained to takes vitals, acquire pertinent information, makes trained medical observations and prepares the patient for possible required exams for when the doctor arrives--all of this on behalf of the doctor.
This nurse does not notice she is full term pregnant and in active labor. Remember that part above "prepares the patient for possible required exams" if the nurse has any indications the issue was in anyway related to female reproductive organs or involved the vagina the nurse would have the patient--Alexee--change into a gown for a possible pelvic exam.
She does not do this--Alexee is not in a hospital gown so another registered nurse experienced in emergency medicine--nurse number two--is completely oblivious to a full term pregnancy and active labor.
>The doctor comes into the exam room. This is a licensed and trained medical doctor specializing in emergency medicine. She speaks with and presumably examines Alexee for her back pain--to do anything less is malpractice. This medical doctor, certified and practicing emergency medicine orders pain medicine administered to Alexee.
We have a trained and experienced MEDICAL DOCTOR that does not realize Alexee is full term pregnant and in active labor. Remember those photos on the internet I discussed earlier and believe them to be faked and photo-shopped? If they were real and she was that visibly pregnant tell me two registered nurses and a licensed medical doctor given the symptoms displayed, age of the patient and the obvious dynamic between mom and daughter about keeping her virginity and you still don't this she is full term pregnant and in active labor.
The dynamic observed between Alexee and her mom the doctor had the DUTY as a standard of car to ask the mother to leave the exam room so she could privately discuss things with Alexee.
>We have all been in the hospital and ER so we all know how this goes. We know another nurse came to administer the pain meds and to administer test(s) order by the doctor. (we also know this by the police interviews of all medical personal involved)
This is nurse number three not noticing a teenage girl is full term and in active labor!!! Not just any registered nurse but the Emergency Room CHARGE NURSE--the head of the nurses in the ER at that time. (he's the male nurse in the videos wearing a skull cap).
>We know one of the tests ordered by the doctor and administered was a pregnancy test. A pregnancy test that results POSITIVE. We have a teen girl patient in extreme pain who is sure she isn't pregnant and is adamant she is not pregnant because I don't believe she thought she was. This patient is in an exam room and you the medical staff and especially the doctor DO NOT immediately return to the exam room to conduct a simple and quick pelvic exam (which doesn't even require a doctor a nurse can do and routinely do pelvic exams).
>Instead the doctor orders an ultrasound. So time passes when a quick pelvic could have been done but wasn't and in comes the ultrasound tech. She DOES NOT HAVE THE PROPER WAND ATTACHMENT TO CONDUCT A PREGNANCY ULTRASOUND. On top of this she is an Ultrasound tech--certified and trained--and even after attempting an unsuccessful ultrasound doesn't realize Alexee is full term pregnant with a baby literally in the birth canal in active labor.
Keep in mind the certified and trained ultrasound tech who has done presumably dozens, if not hundreds, if not thousands of ultrasounds on pregnant women in labor--because ultrasounds are common in virtually every pregnancy--this tech doesn't realize Alexee is full term and in active labor.
We KNOW the ultrasound tech had to pull up Alexee's shirt to expose the skin on her stomach to attempt the ultrasound (because you can't do an ultrasound without skin to wand contact via some snot-like medical grade jelly).
IF the tech thought Alexee was in active labor, full term and close to delivering does anyone not think she wouldn't tell a nurse or the doctor?? "Hey you better check on this girl right now?"
>None of the medical staff even tells Alexee her pregnancy test was positive. Alexee and her mom still have no idea Alexee is pregnant.
>Alexee feels like she needs to use the bathroom--to have a bowel movement. The nurses and doctor allow her to get up, unaccompanied and waddle / run holding her bottom all the way down the hall. Alexee has NO IDEA she is pregnant--has never been told by any medical staff and didn't see the baby on the ultrasound because the tech botched the procedure not having the correct wand.
>Common knowledge to most people--lay people--as a baby enters the birth canal and crowns the woman feels an overwhelming urge to have a bowel movement. We expect even at the lowest and most minimal level of care by registered nurses and licensed doctors to know a woman in labor experiences a sensation of needing to have a BM before the baby is born. Medical facts and training teaches nurses and doctors to instruct the woman to push the baby out as if she was pushing to have a BM. We know virtually every woman has a BM at some point while pushing.
Alexee and her mom still have no idea she is pregnant at this point despite being seen by three registered nurses, an ultrasound tech and a licensed MEDICAL DOCTOR.
The medical staff KNOWS 100% Alexee is pregnant-and has known long enough to send in an ultrasound tech perform a botched ultrasound--and yet the medical staff knowing all of this allows Alexee to waddle-run down a hall holding her bottom, ALONE and be in a bathroom over 20 minutes.
We are so far past medical malpractice on so many levels to the point of gross negligence and blatant disregard for Alexee-the patient. I've seen a lot of cases of malpractice at busy hospitals but nothing has ever come close to the malpractice and willful disregard for patient care and safety as I have learned in this case.
>Alexee, doesn't know shes pregnant, feels like she needs to have an urgent BM. She's on the toilet, shes in pain, pushing feels good because that is what her body is telling her and everyone knows if you feel super constipated with a huge and heavy poop that's stuck as soon as you get it out you will feel better.
At some point Alexee's body takes over--humans are animals--and like animals a body will birth a baby as an automatic process regardless if the mom is ready or not. Regardless if the mom is even conscious or not--after all comatose patients have delivered babies spontaneously.
This is that time.
I know everyone is going to shout but she should have called for help ect ect.
Really think about this and consider:
>Alexee is a teenager, young and inexperienced with her body and womanhood. She only just barely meets the legal definition as an adult buy mere weeks and can't even buy vape or a pack of smokes and she's still in high school. An adult by technicality only she is in high school, acts very immature and has not had any life experiences as an adult.
>Alexee has been to the ER twice in 30 days time and is in the ER at this very moment sitting on a toilet with an incredible urge to poop, she's seen by half a dozen trained medical professionals even just moments ago and she knows they gave her a pregnancy test "just in case" and no one has told her she's pregnant, she's scared to death but in her mind she's on the birth control pill and not a single person at the hospital during two visits has told her she's pregnant. She has NO idea a baby is about to come out. It's not possible to her and based on all we know she has confirmation in her mind time and time and time again she is NOT PREGNANT. In fact, she is on her period she thinks, she sees blood--yes confirmation of period, cramps, pain, nausea--all valid, legitimate and known period indicators. She can't be pregnant as we have established and since she is at the hospital they would have told her if she was. She has back problems, thinks she is on or starting her period and is constipated worse than she has ever been--of course combined these are the cramps and pain from the pitts of hell.
>Experts will testify at some point in that toilet room she disassociates with her body. Now she is in fear, overwhelming pain, anxiety, young with limited life experience. She has been drugged by the doctors with pain medicine which affects her sensations and cognitive abilities and decision making. She wants to yell for help but she can't. There is no voice, no words and no actual realization as to what is happening to her.
>This is NOT unheard of. Fear is a power controller. Every person responds differently. Many people do nothing and totally freeze and are oblivious to external stimuli. History is full of people--aged and experienced adults who are trained professionals in life and death situations who freeze and cannot function or function in a totally illogical way.
--The airline pilot who despite thousands of hours of flight experience suddenly forgets how to fly or simply does nothing. Or does something so incredibly stupid and so contradictory to every bit of training and flying instinct makes the wrong response causing the plane to crash. (Atlas Air B767 / Continental Express Q400 / UPS A300)
--Trained soldiers in battle firing on their own fellow soldiers wearing the same uniform right in front of them but in that moment they kill their friends.
--A veteran police officer responding to a school shooting in Florida so overcome with fear he cannot enter the building to do the job he has trained, practiced and done for 25 plus years of his career resulting in dozens of children dying or injured.
--A respected gray-haired "old salt" ship captain who has crossed the Atlantic hundreds of times in his 50 year career--actually the admiral of the fleet-- who becomes impotent when his ship hits an iceberg and after giving the orders to evacuate disappears from leadership. (Titanic)
The recent Idaho murders the downstairs roommate, who has experienced actual adult experiences living on her own in college, comes FACE-TO-FACE with the killer while her four friends and roommates are bleeding out locks herself into her room, goes to bed and does NOTHING for hours until the net day. This is despite her admitting she heard a pained / muffled scream, moaning, an unknown voice and came face-to-face with the killer POTENTIALLY while the victims could have been saved with immediate medical care. She is defended by society as bearing no burden or negligence because she was young, scared and had been partying so was under the influence of substances.
Wait a minute........so was Alexee. Ironically some of the same people in this very forum who defended the Idaho roommate for being completely without burden by ignoring and going back to bed want to lynch Alexee or lock her up for her entire life.
Can we under all of these circumstances expect a teenage girl who has every legitimate reason to be sure she is NOT pregnant and not in labor expect her to be rational in this moment?
If Alexee herself didn't know she was pregnant, had no reason to expect she was pregnant, was on birth control, her mom who has had three pregnancies doesn't notice, her peers don't notice, her teachers don't notice, her coaches, her church, her boyfriend AND....
the visit where the birth occurred:
If ALL of the people in Alexee's life and ESPECIALLY TRAINED MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS did not notice or realize she was not only pregnant but in active labor HOW CAN WE EXPECT ALEXEE--a teenager--TO REALIZE THIS WHEN SHE TOOK HERSELF TO A HOSPITAL WANTING HELP?
The hospital and its staff disgust me. They acted with total disregard to Alexee and human life. Not a single nurse or doctor even bothered to try and resuscitate the baby when it was found. Most likely the baby was beyond resuscitation but for medical professionals in a hospital to not even attempt to save the baby after totally botching the standard of care for Alexee up to this point shows how criminally negligent everyone who treated Alexee that night is culpable for the death of a child.
The state has WAY overcharged Alexee. At most she should be facing abuse of a corpse. She needs mental help not jail. She is not likely to ever re-offend.
The ER doctor should be charged with manslaughter and negligence resulting in a death as her level of care was grossly negligent.
My heart goes out to the little boy who is not live--stillborn or otherwise. All life is precious.
So is Alexee and her life. This is beyond horrible for all involved. Every single person in Alexee's life failed her time and time again.
Do not as a jury pr society fail her again and sentence her to life in prison. There is so much reasonable double of premeditation and medical negligence / indifference in this case it would be criminal for a jury to convict her of Premeditated Murder in the 1sr degree.
I pray for everyone involved on so many levels. This case has no winners--only losers . Every single person in contact at any point with Alexee--but especially on the night in question-- and Alexee herself has a heavy cross to bear for the rest of their lives.
The nurses and ultrasound tech should be retrained, put on probation to be monitored making sure they have the skills and judgements needed to care for patients and the medical doctor should lose her license.
Alexee especially as well as her mother and boyfriend need education and counseling.
Thank you for your time and consideration.

2023.06.10 19:31 suit32 2017 Nissan Altima SR Won't Turn Over

I recently installed a new transmission that came with a computer already programmed. We cranked up the car and drove it around. After a couple of days, the car won't start. The lights come on, and there is a clicking noise but won't turn over. I tested the battery (still good) and tried jumping it off. I looked up several videos online that suggested checking the brake switch and keyfob. The brake isn't hard to push and the lights do come on. The car recognizes the key fob. I called the dealership and asked if it could be the transmission's new computer. The service center gentleman said that wouldn't affect it not turning on, just the car's acceleration during shifting. I live in the countryside so it is very expensive to tow it to the dealership. If anyone has any advice it will be greatly appreciated.
