Hello all, I posted a poem I wrote a couple weeks ago and here is another one! I really enjoy writing these, and so I hope they inspire and entertain at least a few of you :)
When I Die When I die, don’t look for me in the sunset I won’t be in the sunrise When I die Don’t look for me in the stars I won’t be in a constellation When I die Don’t look for me in an object I won’t be in your guitar When I die Don’t look for me in an animal I won’t be a bird When I die Don’t look for me in the trees I won’t be in the grass When I die Don’t look for me in a book I won’t be within the pages When I die Don’t look for me in pictures I won’t really exist there When I die Don’t look for me in the mirror I wasn’t with you all along When I die… I’ll be in the waves I’ll be the waves I’ll be the crash and the foam and the gentle lap lap I’ll be the green and the blue and the kelp floating back I’ll be the calm and the beauty I’ll be the storms and the fear I’ll be the tall and the short and the brave and the weak I’ll be the healthy and the sick and the excited and the bored Pleasing to most, unpleasant to others, threatening to some But mostly just steady. I’ll be at peace. I’ll be done, and I’ll just come in the then go back out I’ll return to the sea. Because the wave was just a way for the water to be

2023.06.10 02:05 ChichMagnet [FNV] The game stutters and lags when loading distant objects (trees, rocks, cliffs, or just general world loading)
Gentlemen, I give up.... From this day, I am officially part of "could not solve it myself so I went to reddit" club. Recently I decided to replay New Vegas with some mods. I downloaded bunch of texture mods and my game is freezing and stuttering like hell whenever I am walking around in the Mojave while loading some distant objects. I tried LOD's and they made things worse. The stutter removing mod is not compatible with Windows 10 and generally causes a lot of issues. I tried moving the entire game into my SSD and although there are some minor improvements, it's still a mess. So, dear Mojave wanderers, how can I solve this issue ?? Here are some of my graphical mods that might be the cause of the problem, Legacy Reborn High + NMCs Textures NV LARGE + Poco BuenoSuperPele's Disordered Retexture Pack2K HD Cloud Retextures Nut's Natural Grass Wasteland Flora and Terrain Overhaul Mojave Cliffs - High Higher Poly Rocks Improved LOD Noise Texture Micro Clutter Architecture Retexture Pack - 2k Character Expansions RevisedFurniture Pack HI-RES Chems and Health ReTexture Pak

2023.06.10 02:02 Schneetmacher Haul Reviews: Possets & Area of Effect!
Hello, IMAM! Today I am reviewing fragrances purchased from Area of Effect and Possets
. All are oil-based.
I haven’t included like & dislikes before in reviews, but I think I should start now, as it provides some context for how I approach scents. Likes
· Black licorice / aniseed
· Artemisia / wormwood, fennel, mint & associated “cool” herbs
· Citrus (including neroli)
· Most fruits (excluding those listed in dislikes), especially tropical ones and raspberries
· Cinnamon & nutmeg
· Most woods & resins (excluding those listed in dislikes)
· “Green” profiles
· Rosemary, thyme & similar herbs (excluding those listed in dislikes)
· Most nuts (excluding those listed in dislikes)
Patchouli is also a “like,” but my skin can amplify it to a ludicrous degree so I have to be careful. Dislikes
· Sandalwood (migraine trigger)
· Birch bark & leather / birch tar (allergic)
· Icing / buttercream
· Almond (includes most cherry accords)
· Aldehydes (includes apples)
· Most florals
· “Powdery” scents and anything with a lipstick / cosmetic accord (this includes most ambers, in my experience)
· Black & Earl Grey tea (funnily enough, I prefer tea to coffee irl)
· Papaya (had this go “sour” / rotten on me)
It is possible that benzoin might be another dislike, but I have to experiment more before I make a decision. And I try to be careful with musk, as some varieties can induce headaches.
While I chose the fragrances all based on notes, I make a point of not double-checking when I test, going in as blindly as possible. Now, on to the reviews! Possets
“Priya” – lemon, cardamom, and vanilla
Prior to testing, I opened the FS bottle and then open for a few hours, in a method I’d read about on here for “accelerated aging.” In the past I’ve found that this helps to deepen a fragrance in a positive way. (The only bottles I can’t do this with are skinny wand vials – they’ll fall over.) This method even improved the sniff test! While initially it had smelled like a very clean lemon (perhaps too clean), afterward some tasteful hints of sugar came through.
When testing “Priya” on the skin, I was met with a true lemon sugar accord. In fact… I was reminded of pancakes. Or, at least, how pancakes are apparently served in Great Britain. For context: when I first heard of the 4160 Tuesdays perfume “Sunshine & Pancakes,” I was terribly confused by the notes list: lemon, orange, honey… no cake / pastry note, no maple syrup, what the heck was this? Then I learned that across the pond they’re often served with drizzled honey or sugar, and lemon squeezed on top. Anyway, the opening of “Priya” smells like what I imagine British pancakes to be.
With such a promising opening, I wish I could say that the sweetness deepened into something spicier / woodier, or even just carried through to the end. However, the lemon – which is a powerful
lemon to hang on for so long – eventually became purer, and purer, until it started reminding me of household cleaner. Altogether, I think what ended up on my arm would make a heavenly room scent; but it’s not something I want on my skin.
Given that “Priya” is tied to a worthwhile charitable cause via Possets, I won’t destash the full bottle as-is. Instead, I’m going to decant it so people can sample it first (since samples of this aren’t sold separately), and if they like it then they can purchase the FS from Possets.
/5 – lemony fresh
“Pippin Pie” – The juiciest and most tart apples, the flakiest and most buttery pastry, heaps and heaps of sugar and a kiss of spice.
This was a surprise free sample in my order, and I went into this with some trepidation as apples and my skin don’t get along.
My first impression was that this was very
savory. Like, Fyrinnae being weird kind of savory (think “Artisan Bakery”). Out of the bottle, those first sniffs gave me some pause! On the skin, though… that first half hour was the most delicious pie crust imaginable. I don’t normally go for scents that are that
gourmand (usually too much for my nose), but this was where pies go to die. This was the Double-R in “Twin Peaks.”
After half an hour, though, it faded… and faded… until there was something so faint on my arm I could hardly tell if it genuinely approached apples or if it was just softly soapy. Two hours, and the scent was genuinely gone.
I tested on each arm, separately, and confirmed this. My skin ate “Pippin Pie” up, sadly.
/5 – the pie did, in fact, die
“Bear Lake Shake-Utah” – a raspberry milkshake made with berries picked that day… amid the scent of the summer sun hitting the mountain lake, crystalline air, the milky raspberry shakes cooled and comforted them
I was so looking forward to this milkshake. Alas, this has made me discover I’m not much of a fan of lactonic notes. It’s hard for me to articulate how they’re separate from vanilla or coumarin, but “milk” is definitely different in perfume, and I don’t think I like it. In fact, I would go so far as to guess that it was lactonic notes I disliked in previous banana-oriented fragrances I tried, and not banana itself. I may need to try banana again.
The raspberry, as well, was not what I was looking for. Now, my favorite incarnation of raspberry in perfume so far is from a niche house: Svensk Parfym, “Virke” (means “timber” in Swedish). It smells like raspberries growing wild in the Swedish taiga, and it’s one of few EdPs I’d consider repurchasing, if I can’t find an indie raspberry to which I can declare loyalty. So far, my favorite indie has been Stone & Wit “Cipher,” which is a fresh, juicy, and not at all candied raspberry.
The raspberry here, however, is much more like a lollipop or Jolly Rancher than the fruit itself, which was disappointing.
/5 – not my kind of milkshake, I guess Area of Effect
“Isabelle” – peach, black pepper, fresh cut grass, soft vanilla, dry wood, cedar
While I did not double-check the notes before testing, I recall that I’d purchased “Intelligence” and “Isabelle” together for comparison purposes as peach scents, since I was still on a quest to find my perfect peach.
After resting, “Isabelle” no longer smelled super traditional out of the vial, and I actually caught whiffs of peach. When I tested I smelled something cool and green under everything else, and I’m starting to think that is, in fact, Area of Effect’s base. (Yes, I know this has a “fresh cut grass” note, but I’ve smelled this nuance in other AoE scents I’ve tried.) The opening of this is an under-ripe peach, in fact, still on the branch. Eventually, this does get more “picnic grounds” than “picnic meal,” and isn’t very sweet.
For someone who enjoys softer scents, and wants something feminine that isn’t off-the-wall but also not super traditional / vintage, “Isabelle” could be a wonderful everyday / work scent. Sadly, it’s not what I’m looking for.
/5 – peach needs longer to ripen
“Intelligence” – peony, peach, coconut, olive leaf, cotton candy, vanilla bean
Of course, I tested “Intelligence” right after “Isabelle” so the comparison would be fresh in my mind. I must say, I was surprised at how strong the peach note was in this one, since my first impression had hinted it would be of the softer variety. Now, the peach wasn’t necessarily as juicy as I wanted (I’m starting to wonder if what I want is even possible in a perfume: a juicy, realistic, not-too-sweet peach that doesn’t fade right away), but here was a peach note that was sticking around!
And the way it settled wasn’t too heavily gourmand, either: peach still wafted up from my arm, but sniffing closer to my skin I found a lovely coconut with just a sprinkling of tiaré petals (not full-on monoi oil).
Looking at the notes, I’m curious about what I don’t
get on my skin. I didn’t smell peony at all, nor cotton candy; and what little vanilla was there, was quiet. (I think the olive leaf was what I mistook for tiaré.) This wasn’t nearly as sweet on my skin as what the notes list would suggest, and I’m actually grateful.
I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised that I enjoyed “Intelligence” so much, as that’s usually my highest DnD stat (magic-user). 😊
/5 – For the time being, I really think that I’ve found my peach scent!
“K.K. Slider” – coconut cream, rum, pineapple, chai spice, nutmeg, graham cracker
After “Pippin Pie,” I tested this one, hoping to get a better result from what I remembered as “key lime pie, but with pineapple.” Out of the vial I’d gotten no fruit, but I hoped this would change on my skin.
I was wrong. I was very, very wrong. The sweet crust evolved into a full-on icing accord that overwhelmed my nose, to the point where I had to scrub. There was no pineapple. ☹
/5 – definitely try this if you like icing
“Killer Tomatoes” – tomato leaf, sun-dried tomato, dirt, fig, patchouli
All right, I’d had several noes in a row and really wanted a yes. I needed a great green perfume. Funnily enough, in my curiosity regarding AoE’s sun-dried tomato note I’d previously tried “Garden Warfare,” but gotten mostly dirt from that one. In a review I posted to IMAM, the actual perfumer behind AoE commented that “Killer Tomatoes” was what I really wanted. It’s late, but I did eventually try it!
And it’s what I wanted. As far as green profiles go, it’s in a similar vein to Morari “Tomato Vine” – but whereas that is pure green leaves and almost spa-like in its Zen, “Killer Tomatoes” has a tanginess that really does evoke tomato flesh (particularly of the sun-dried variety). I don’t know how AoE did this (most “tomato” notes in perfumery refer to the leaves & vine), but they did it. And I love it!
/5 – I found my tomato!
“Viva Piñata” – guava, hibiscus, hot spice, mango, coconut, beach, cola, sandalwood
This was the last one I tested, and one I’d remembered really being hyped about. It’s also the one I can smell the least
out of the vial – remarkably subtle. On skin, a sort of candied / dried mango accord started to form, and I got excited! It didn’t stay sweet, though – or project very much. Eventually it became mainly a soft musk, which really isn’t my thing.
Color me shocked, though, when I got the notes list for this review and saw sandalwood
. If I’d remembered sandalwood was in this, I wouldn’t have purchased it. Luckily, this didn’t cause a migraine, but that “soft musk” I picked up I’m not guessing was sandalwood combined with whatever makes the “beach” note (sand, waves, etc.). I wish the fruits had stuck around, and that I’d gotten the hot (presumably chili) spice.
/5 – out with a whimper
This was… kind of a disappointing haul, if I’m being honest. Outside of the FS I’d purchased from Possets of “Dance with Me,” which I already love, I’m only keeping two of my samples and destashing everything else. I’ve put myself on no-buy now, until I sell my destashes and use up more of what I already have.

2023.06.10 01:47 Cumgoblinn Under the Dirt You Stand on
Heyyy I know it’s been awhile, I feel really bad about how we left things and I wanted to apologize. You matter to me, I don’t want you to forget that.
I wanted to write this to you in hopes that an auburn glow warms the hardened crevices of your face again, a strawberry milkshake blends your stomach, and that your frozen tears ripple with impulsive cannon balls. I want that for you. A frozen statue imposed in your place in the halls and your hands have maintained the ordered timbre of a reliable mower buried in work. The oil and sweat is nice but you have to let something grow sooner or later. I’m sure you’re feeling lonely, y’know we can’t be separated forever.
Remember when we spilled our guts like water on a house plant? You shattered but we always got you a new home. I hoped the arrangement I gave you would be the last. A couple marigolds and snapdragons wear a ribbon that tells you to keep your head up high. But we both know you can’t, we uprooted in grief and left the past buried. I gave you the prescribed remedy of 50 milligrams of insulating fertilizer so lofts so much now I can’t help but miss the sound of your voice.
We shared the same pair of eyes, you were always the romantic one. My cottage core gossip carried your giggles up when you were stuck in the mud, my still observation steadied your green thumbs. A strategic peppermint salted the iced path where you flourished. Your foolish optimism is dearly missed.
I’m just not the same without you, a Gemini pair of jokers. Two sides round out the same coin that’s plagued by an ace in the hole and a tail in the grave. You were a foil to my shine and being the better blade of our double edged sword makes a slay more castrated than play. A dull boy who left his axe out in the winter. Without you I'm left to let-pay feinted facers, just say-we’re better together. I’m not here to cut your head off.
Omg Ik ur busy but I have to tell you some tea
Those old ivies you planted are growing around that dying tree. It’ll get cut down sooner or later, I thought you might wanna know. Spider moved out of the Willow. I heard they’re both devastated. I guess life does that to you, right when you want to get settled in some belligerent blade tags the best bark. I saw a girl dancing with a marigold in her hair, I swear it sung from seasons past. I guess I should quit the conjecture. I wanted you to remember the pollinated impressions that permeate old hearts and flowers. You were being honest, I do care too much about being right.
Hey, I also wanted to apologize. I know how much she meant to you. Normally you’re the reckless one but I only saw her brightest colors and let you see the darkest. Your burial in a clay coffin cloaks from the cold, the salt, and whatever else she’ll say. I get it. I’m the one who told you “You should get to know flowers, they make a house a home. You need a home right now, winter is coming soon.” You don’t need to cut your ear off. I hear you. I’m sorry sparks flew before a storm but I’m sure you at least saw the forecast. I guess you didn’t see it because she was all of the things you left behind. A Sunday crossword, a stuffed dinosaur, a bowl of sugary cereal. She was a Saturday morning blessing. Pure magic, everywhere she glowed, sunlight followed every step. She was your missing half whose absence was marked by a starry night. Sincerest condolences.
You wanted forever but we both know you wouldn’t have gotten there. I told you that sunflowers get easily distracted, that they wander to the sun past your eyeline. She followed the sun into the horizon then left you on your coldest nights. I tried to warn you, a sunflower turns away out of habit.
What did you expect from a goofy little fruit? A person so sweet they hum to the tune of sunlight, almost as if no one noticed how her roots wrap around the ground. Coincidentally lain about in an act of effortless beauty that just so happens to be on display for you. The deal is one sided. The soil is staked and occupied. She’s not in a position to support or trust right now, just like I told you.
Maybe I’m harsh :/ still love u tho <3
Maybe she did too. Your green eyes paint a pale self portrait but maybe it wasn't so bad. She gave you sunflower seeds, she crocheted glistening memories out of nothing. Remember when you saw her sunbathing last summer? She looked so happy. You didn’t want her to get cold so you left the door open, she trailed some dirt but you didn’t mind. You were too busy watching the rain together; you would’ve done anything for her.
I guess that's when the sky shattered and time stopped. The sound of water crushing away nature’s grays and baptizing the mulch covered us like a blanket. Books and baubles blocked your peripherals and she was the apple of your eye. Her head laid heavy on your shoulder as she ranted about something silly as a smiling atlas guides your future. The weight of your world was enough to carry, I guess she didn't think so.
Where does Atlas go without the world? Shot into the empty void? You couldn’t survive without me. Honestly you should be grateful I kept you grounded. you’re no Atlas, you couldn’t carry the weight and buttress the fair flower. Maybe a better you is buried in my backyard; if you’re buried in my backyard maybe it’s for a good reason. Sometimes I think you’re better at decomposing, she made that clear. She handed me the shovel and you were happy to go. You’re the part we left together.
Your favorite was sunflowers. You used to love how tall they are, how their pronounced stem dances subtly to a breeze, how rounded seeds were focused but not blind. Her animated roots tango danced tangled threads in a tread through a cold world. I bet you were in awe of her casual beauty weren't you? I bet you loved her didn’t you? I remember when you’d eat sunflower seeds by the barrel before you ever actually saw one. Too bad you did. I’m so sorry you found one and it was everything you ever hoped. I’m so sorry YOU blocked the sun. I don’t feel bad for you and I'm NOT going to apologize.
You do that, you don’t listen. You wander to the pasture and then use your tears and petals as ink. Like it was ever that dramatic, your lenses are tinted in pastel. How could you not remember marigold memories of people you cared too little about. The world is too big and too green to revolve around you and someone else. You are a parasite to their ecosystem. You are seconds away from a trowel cutting you off. The dirt you stand on is too good for you. You have no right to make me feel bad.
The early bird gets the worm? Birdbrained. Did you ever stop to notice the flowers? No! You’re moving so fast that you’d rather dig your outstretched head in the sand than stop and think about what you did wrong. You’d think if you were flying you’d actually have some perspective. I can’t believe how selfish you’re being, I still need you in my life.
You love sunflowers more than the sun. But you’re irresponsible and nonsensical if you don't rip Cupid’s arrow out again. I used to want to be like you but you got shot in the knee and I stand above you. I hope nature finds it right for you to sprout from your casket and grow green and bright, and I hope I don’t have to dig you out kicking and screaming.
P.S. I am sorry I’m such a cynical asshole, maybe we can be friends again <3
Your better half

2023.06.10 01:42 melreadreddit BNZ green top up + ev + gov rebate?
My commodore (our only car, currently we are a one car family, partner e scooters to work and back) has gotten long in the tooth, high kms and is costing me about $100 a week in petrol.
After renovating our house, and interest rates going up, (and everything else!) I'm having to watch my budget closer than ever.
Our home loan is with BNZ, and we have about 40% equity, so would qualify for a green top up loan at 1% for 3 years for an electric vehicle or plug in hybrid.
Am I right in my calculations, that I could get a 10k Nissan leaf (not that I've ever wanted an EV, but perhaps needs must?) With a $3450 clean car rebate, paying it off over 3 years at 1%, and getting the rebate that I can then use to pay off a couple of smaller bills I've got? I see some on trademe through dealers that have the "this car qualifies for a $3450 rebate"
With my calculations, paying off $10k over 3 years is under $70 a week. So at my current rate of using $100 on petrol, plus other costs associated with a large petrol car, am I right in that the car will actually pay for itself over that 3 years? I'd technically only be paying approx $7000 for the car after the rebate.
What do you all think, Hive mind?
I've been looking at smaller cars that are around that same 10k price range, but would have to get a loan (if I qualify, with a credit card and mortgage, credit seems not so easy to obtain these days) A car like that I wouldn't get a 1% loan, I wouldn't get a rebate either. It would also have ongoing fuel costs of course.
Would keep the commodore as the family vehicle until partner buys a double cab Ute early next year. (He will pay for this, we have separate accounts and don't share $$, we each just have parts of the budget we take care of)
I clean houses for my job, and so I'm driving all around town on the daily (where my commodore is at it's most thirsty!) So could make driving almost free, and after claiming my 95cents/km come income tax return time (self employed sole trader) I'd actually be "making money" from the deductions as far as tax is concerned.
Am I missing something? Is this the best way to get a smaller, hatchback vehicle for me to cruise around for work and ferrying kids back and forth to school etc?
Car is just a personal car, I claim the per km rate come tax time, rather than the business own the car and claim expenses and depreciation. If that all makes sense.
I will post this in the EV sub too.

Thanks for getting all the way down here! I will likely be bringing these items to the local sale. Here's some items I have, but have not yet taken pictures of because interest is likely very limited.. Most of this stuff would be miserable to ship so I have only included local prices. Message me if you want pictures of any of these items TO BUY LOCALLY IN MA.
Local items - old timestamps
AKs & King Arms PDW Shorty https://imgur.com/a/eSniMhz

- Bought off of hop-up App. Gun supposedly was worked on/upgraded by "Georgia Airsoft". Received it and was disappointed with the amount of rust - presumably from the humid environment in Georgia. Lost interest in it based on the sheer weight
- Worked last time I shot it though it had the notorious "jamming" by smashing semi... It's an easy swap to auto, shoot, and back to normal but still annoying.

2023.06.10 01:28 NuclearWasteland Today I chose violence. Lets talk about EGO.
Never again will I buy a gas engine mower for a small plot.
Quiet, variable speed blades, does not scare the animals, even the chickens will follow along after bugs, no fumes, the batteries can be used in an ass ton of very nice home owner tools, machine is light enough I can wrestle it out of anything it gets stuck in, power capacity can be expanded with additional or improved batteries, NO BELTS, like driving an RC car around the yard, zero turn design, cupholder that won't vibrate the fizz out of your drink because there's no attached explosion box.
Seriously, I'm done with gas engine anything related to mowers. It's also easier on the grass and soil because the whole machine is not shaking like a concrete vibrator, liquifying the wet soil and displacing it under tire tread anywhere that is not perfectly dry.
I did not realize how badly the engine vibration was impacting myself and my landscape till it was absent.
I've thrown my lot in with Ego. Stupid name, great products, promised continued battery compatibility with ALL their tools. I use the mower batteries in a battery bank for camping. Can't easily do that with the engine in a gas mower that just sits idle in the off season. The high CFM leaf blower is amazing. The flood light is contractor grade. The push mowers are light, quiet, reliable, and chew up unkept lawns like a champ. The string trimmer is, well it's a good string trimmer, I dunno. Electric variants of those have been pretty good for a while if you pay enough.
There are places for gas mowers, and def for larger property applications, but this is the future, electric is viable, so so off brand batteries are available cheaply. There is no reason for me to spend on a comparatively priced fuel burner going into an increasingly EV future. It plugs in to charge as simple as my phone, and has a charge plug FOR my phone beside the aforementioned cupholder, of which there are two. There is an available shade canopy that is sturdy enough to act as a light rollover bar, and mount for an equipment box or yard tools.
Seriously, go electric. It made mowing my rough hilly forested 2 acres actually fun, like a little off road adventure every time. The zero turn is surprisingly capable on things other than flat lawn.
There is a reason Craigslist and Marketplace are flooded with free gas mowers.
The chainsaws are also pretty nice, and a major reason for my electric choice is fire. No heat and spark making engine, which after massive sustained fire evacuations a few summers ago is a HUGE deal. Not only is there no hot exhaust to worry about, but also no exposed friction heat sources, such as obtuse belts and pulley systems. This is not the flat-belt drive 1920's. Direct drive that shit with an enclosed high torque variable speed motor.
It has nice LED lighting, so you can near silently mow at night, even in a residential area, when the sun is down and it's cool out, and nobody will care because unless you chew up a rock or big branch nobody is going to hear it through even the most basic of vinyl frame double pane window.
I am using this thing outside it's intended spec's, and am using it hard, and it keeps going. This is the sort of machine the average home-owner actually needs, but marketing and bravado says otherwise.
It is not commercial equipment, but if you actually do need that, this brand is also expanding into that market.

2023.06.10 01:22 GhostsinGlass With the downtown revitalization starting and the boon our economy is receiving from the tourism uplift with the cruise ship visits I have to ask, where is the pressure on commercial property owners to stop being dead weight?
This one is tricky because in general I'm never a fan of those in authority telling others what they can and cannot do with what is their own private property but as it stands I feel this is an issue of those private property owners affecting others.
I love our city, I love to crack jokes about our city. What I don't love is the pang of guilt and embarrassment I feel when these shuttles/packs/herds of tourists are shuffling through downtown looking to spend their money and the area is littered with missed opportunities that end up bringing the overall experience down.
The little shop at the very nexus of the downtown core that's stood empty for far too long, right between NV and Milktease. What a fucking eyesore that is, with Dino Meneis face leering into the street from his election posters he couldn't be bothered to remove. Yeah Dino, you give a shit about Thunder Bay alright, dick. This location being left to rot by Azzolini is a crime.
The Lyceum, another problematic property with huge potential, allegedly going to be developed but that's been a song sung so many times now that the tune has gone flat.
ex-BMO, corner of Court and Red River, still siting empty and from what I've heard it's due to the price tag, another absolute waste of potential especially with the downtown revitalization That building looks like amazing potential. When your storefront could be angled to engage two intersecting corridors with very high travel, at a damned intersection no less you've got so much engagement that your advertising budget could be enough to buy a hotdog and you would still do well.
Apple Chipotles, something something dude may or may not be a woman beater so whatever makes things difficult makes me happy. Lot 66 and Tony & Adams pack the house with people and instead of having a little venue for people to pop over to for a little lowkey downtempo ambience with live entertainment they get to see a shuttered business. Shove a piano in there and play the blues, it would work.
77 Court Street, the solar powered derelict distillery that never happened, or whatever. This place and the lots around it being left to decay or worse really gets my ass in a tuba. The parking lot next to it is no-mans land where the asphalt is being replaced by our two native grass species, switchgrass and 3cc syringe. I don't know if the owner is the guy who owns the lot in the back but given that the parking lot has large scrap metal pieces that may at one point in time have been something useful makes me think so. That machinery has been sitting there rotting away since at least 2009 according to google streetview. what insanity is this? It's no wonder nobody wants to develop the lot next to it right next to those new apartment buildings. The same owner has a large greenspace in a back lot full of rotting vehicles. Various states of decay, lots fit for the crusher but some not out of the realm of restoring. Just sitting there smack fuck doing nothing but looking like shit. What's more is this shitheap of a property brings down the entire neighbourhood and that's really saying something when it's on fuckin Manitou.
17 Cumberland Street South, I don't even know anymore. Nothing on this stretch should be sitting empty because everything is booming on this street more or less thanks to Tomlin Sub, Lakehead, Water, Prospector, In Common, etc. Yet this old fashion store is dead weight doing nothing but holding up the apartments above it, or the law office I can't remember. Literally looks like the 1970's inside.
So the taxpayers and such want a return on the investment of their money being sunk into the downtown revamp, that's fully understandable and our city needs this. So if these and others are for whatever reasons just leaving properties as dead weight actively working against the best interests of the city and the taxpayers in it what pressure is being put on them, what pressure could be put on them. Wasn't it said here recently that residential taxpayers pay insane amounts because the CoC did some fuckoboingo thing that kept taxes dead dead low for commercial property owners?
That's something to be mad about, I love my city and I want it to prosper. I love when we get tourists on this subreddit coming to Thunder Bay and asking what to do, I love how so many people engage with those posts. So I feel that some of you may also feel a mutual sense of embarrassment at the presentation we are giving our guests, so there's another reason the city should be putting pressure on these dorks.
Sorry about the rant, I'm so sick of seeing Dino Meneis face, so very sick of it.

2023.06.10 01:22 ThrowAway7s2 Response to "The Importance of Pronouns" from doorcountypulse.com on June 8, 2023
This is a response to https://doorcountypulse.com/the-importance-of-pronouns/
, and it also reflects on https://doorcountypulse.com/hello-peninsula-pulse/
Supreme Court cases do not operate the way the Independent article suggests. Small details in a decision, tangential to the issue being decided, do not turn it into a landmark case, or even establish precedent. Rather, it is a decision's holding which determines whether a case is a landmark or not. The Independent is foreign owned and operated, but being a large outlet, they should know better than to put out an article like the one you linked to.
In the court system, pronoun policy is currently split at the appellate level, with the Sixth Circuit and the Seventh Circuit taking opposing sides. The Supreme Court has not weighed in on this yet, but the split makes it more likely they will choose to rule about it.
Besides this, Jonathon Turley writes at https://jonathanturley.org/2023/04/25/seventh-circuit-upholds-termination-of-high-school-teacher-who-objected-to-pronoun-policy/
that a currently pending religious accommodations case, Groff v. DeJoy, could "gut the underlying standard used by the Seventh Circuit in its ruling for the school district".
Sixth Circuit https://www.opn.ca6.uscourts.gov/opinions.pdf/21a0071p-06.pdf
Seventh Circuit https://adfmedialegalfiles.blob.core.windows.net/files/KlugeSeventhCircuitOpinion.pdf
Oral argument for Groff v. DeJoy https://www.oyez.org/cases/2022/22-174
The results of a 2021 survey imply that the purpose of pronoun requirements are especially in order to get rid of conservative employees and civil servants. https://legermarketing.wpenginepowered.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/Leger-The-Atlantic-Survey-Wokeness.pdf#page=10
found that Biden voters backed woke pronouns by a nearly 3 to 1 ratio over Trump voters. The table on page 4 shows that most people surveyed disagreed with woke pronouns: https://legermarketing.wpenginepowered.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/11/Leger-The-Atlantic-Survey-Wokeness.pdf#page=4
. It follows from this that you should not expect your article to be supported by most readers. If people aren't responding negatively to you, it may indicate that they stay quiet because they don't want to be targeted, rather than that they agree. The 14,202 Door Countyites which voted yes on Wisconsin Referendum 1 not that many years ago didn't just disappear when 5 Supreme Court justices ruled against them between eight and nine years afterwards: https://web.archive.org/web/20081127174554/http://elections.state.wi.us/docview.asp?docid=10049&locid=47
Both Champaign and Indianapolis are large cities, which can draw on outlying areas to get workers, making up for having below-replacement fertility. Door County also relies on importing workers, but because it is not a large city with lots of political power, this is less reliable. In 2020, for example, the supply of foreign J-1 workers was abruptly cut off. Door County manages to get a consider number of immigrants from outside the county, but most who relocate for longer than a season are wealthier than people residing in Door County. They also tend to be older and not looking to start new families.
Instead, as larger-scale governing bodies destabilize Door County and break down its social fabric and economy, they can use former Door Countyites to solve the worker shortages in large metro areas. Support for transgenderism is a shibboleth for the economic interests of large metro areas. This manifests itself locally as a lower quality of life and an economic leakage to outside the county. An example of this is in the letter by Janet Wilmoth about having to drive to Green Bay to see a veterinarian: https://doorcountypulse.com/letter-to-the-editor-emergency-veterinary-service-needed/
Because it isn't a big city, Door County is especially dependent on its birth rate for its future. The total fertility rate in 2020 was 1.533 lifetime births, well below replacement of 2.1 lifetime births. At this rate, each generation, without factoring for immigration or emigration, will be 27% smaller than the one before. However, since something like 30% to 40% of young adults leave the county, the effect is even stronger than 27%.
Transgenderism's concomitant drugs and surgeries tend towards sterilization, and towards making its subjects less attractive to the opposite sex. Assisted reproductive technologies are too expensive to be implemented on a broad scale. Transgenderism is a risk to Door County's future, because it could help push that 1.533 figure even lower. In this way, transgenderism is a demographic factor in the overall gentrification, just as unaffordable housing is an economic factor. Just as it is unwise to encourage unaffordable housing, it is unwise to encourage transgenderism.
Or even if you think replacement fertility is unrealistic and unachievable, consider that when the age structure of a population gets too unbalanced, it is harder to take care of the elderly. The struggles at Scandia Village are an example of this: https://doorcountypulse.com/scandia-village-up-for-sale/
. Or should elderly people just be relocated far away, or as some think, even euthanized? Every transgender sterilization is a step in the wrong direction.
It follows then, that someone who refuses to use preferred pronouns might not be a horrible bigot who gets perverse satisfaction from it, but rather, someone who loves his or her community and wants it to have a future. Such people may even be willing to personally be on the losing side of a litmus test for the collective good.
The sponsors for Open Door Pride are listed at https://opendoorpride.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/06/THANK-YOU-TO-OUR-2023-SPONSORS-2-1024x576.jpg
Some of them, such as the Miller Art Museum, Door County Community Auditorium, Peninsula Music Festival, Northern Sky Theater, have benefited from, and can expect to consider benefiting from, public, tax-funded support. Because taxpayers come from all sorts of political backgrounds, these organizations should have avoided all political activities, aside from lobbying for particular things directly related to their organization.
An example of the political trust vested in the Door County Community Auditorium is described in https://doorcountypulse.com/struggle-for-a-stage-door-community-auditorium/
. But like Disney in Florida, they are engaging in partisan activity, betraying that trust. Institutions which benefit from public funding should be non-partisan and impartial. Public money should not be spent on group-think.
Most of the sponsors are local, but Carrie Busse Shorewest Realtors and Napalese are from Green Bay, the Avenue Art & Company is from Appleton, and Marketini Media is from Madison. They get to influence Door County while their cities benefit from Door County's emigrating young-adult population.
I'm not sure if this has been covered in your classes so far, or privately by your boss. If so, bear with me as I restate it. The Pulse has a different political makeup among its advertisers versus its readers. That it is a free paper tends to result in a readership which is inherently less educated than the readership of a subscription newspaper. I used to know a man who had once ran a free paper, but sold it. He was a conservative. It had a lot of general-interest content, nothing political, and especially featured ads for alcohol. Free papers tend to be read by people who read occasionally rather than regularly.
Occasional readers are less educated than regular readers, and the level of education corresponds to the political alignment. This means that natural readership of the Pulse is more conservative than the overall population of Door County. For people with a regular reading habit, the Pulse competes with a number of subscription outlets, while for occasional readers the Pulse has less competition.
Yet the Pulse isn't dominated by gas station and liquor store ads. Unlike many other free papers, its advertisers run more towards the left. This makes sense, because presently Door County has a disproportionately left-wing visitorship. One factor in the loss of right-leaning tourists may be in marketing decisions over recent decades has shifted. Right-wingers from the Chicago metro area are probably drawn more towards state parks in Indiana and other Door County alternatives. Local businesses geared toward tourists, or even seasonal residents, will probably be well-served by advertising in the Pulse.
This leaves the Pulse in the situation where it is to the left of its readership, but still financially sustainable. Its leadership must be aware of this vulnerability, as the Pulse's podcast tends to be to the left of the paper. That it sometimes leaves its readership behind is exemplified how, in the recent midterm election, Ron Johnson did not return any answers to the Pulse's questionnaire, while his Democratic opponent did. Door Countyites voted for him anyway, by a margin of only 75 votes. During the 2022 election it seems that a number of Republicans intentionally spurned media outlets over left-wing bias. To the extent that they did so, and won office anyway, this served to send a message to their base that they were unwilling to be manipulated by left-wing media. It could even be seen as a plea for fair treatment in the future.
Instead of pronouns, there are other topics out there. Recently, a large firm was paid a lot of state money to write a report which claimed that "Potawatomi was chosen in honor of the tribe that had lived in the area before ceding its land to the US government in the 1830’s."
You could write an article debunking this, and explain what really happened. I think it would be well-received locally, though maybe not by the DNR. Had you written an article about how pronouns should always be biologically honest, that would have hurt your chances of getting a job someday as a journalist in a large metro area, but I don't think debunking Graef would hurt you. With some effort, you should be able to find other topics which are win-win for both your future career and for Door County. Although this is a social relationship, were it a biological relationship instead, this would be "mutualism" rather than "parasitism" or "predation".

The sole survivor of a forgotten world, an old Vindertech employee who has honed a new set of skills… slaughtering husks. submitted by MarvelMuse to TheFortniteCreatives [link] [comments]
The Wandering Muse is a fusion of the styles of the Norse warriors with their wooden designs, modern day militant survivors of an undead apocalypse, and the magic Norse runes of old. With the details on the outfit, you can tell that the Wandering Muse has been through tough times, to put it lightly.
The glowing visor of the helmet and the runes in the sword are powered by old magic, inspired by a green version of the Cube Magic we have come in contact with before.
The skin was inspired by the highly detailed ‘Unreal’ female item shop skins that were so intricate and detailed that I couldn’t help but wish there was a male option. I give you… the Wandering Muse.
(If you saw a similar version of this post earlier, I made some edits to the skin to better fit the in game facial model I was basing it off of.)

| || |
I left my neon green (kubotai) rasbora in my partner's care for a week after adding water to my aquarium. He was in good health, normal behavior. I came home today to find him with a red belly, and he's swimming with his tail floating up (swim bladder?) like he's having trouble keeping it down. Checked my water parameters to find that my nitrates and ammonia are high (nitrites are zero). I did a 20% water change. Anything else I can do?? Is my little buddy doomed?? submitted by jenja42 to aquarium [link] [comments]
Pictures attached show him from the front and back with the red, irritated belly. Third picture is my whole tank, 10gal. He's the only fish with a bunch of pond snails (damned hitchhikers, lol).
2023.06.10 01:12 birdsofwormtown Can I ask the postmaster if we can hold a customers mail until they remove noise makers from their front yard?
I have 2 customers on the same street who have “ultrasonic” Animal Repeller noise makers. I put ultrasonic in quotations because I can hear that shit and it’s awful. They emit a high pitched noise and it gives me a headache.
Iv called the department of public works and complained already. I did this in the town I live in saying it interfered with my use of a public way (sidewalk) and the next time I walked down that street they were gone, but idk if they were forced to get rid of them or just decided to. I’m honestly not sure if they are loud enough to legally have to be removed.
There is a serious bunny problem in this town but the noise makers don’t work. I see them eating grass in front of them all the time.
I hate those goddamn things with a passion. It’s a blood curdling high pitched noise that is just terrible. Idk how anyone could install that in their front yard. I suppose old people just can’t hear it but plenty of children live on these streets. It’s cruel tbh.
Does this count as obstruction we could hold their mail over?

2023.06.10 01:09 bobwehadababy1tsaboy Can't cone to terms with cutting
| || |
I've been told it's all zoysia grass. It looks like it from the blades. Sod dropped at 2 different times. 1 is cut very short and looks more yellow. The other I let grow to about 2.75in and it's more green and healthier looking. All recommendations I've seen say zoysia is a 1.5in grass. Coming from a tall fescue home in the north, I'm struggling to accept that. Are the recommendations right? 1.5in height and 1in water a week? Zone 9a north Florida. Sod is between 8-12 weeks old. Grade is piss poor (flat). This pic after receiving 3.5in of rainfall last week. submitted by bobwehadababy1tsaboy to lawncare [link] [comments]
2 close ups included. Thumb in shot is the green 2.75in cut.
2023.06.10 01:08 Middle-Persimmon7077 Am I a warm olive, neutral olive, or cool olive?
| || | submitted by Middle-Persimmon7077 to coloranalysis [link] [comments]
Recently, I found out that I’m olive skin toned, bc wearing mustard-yellow clothes made me look washed up. And wearing pastel blue (a very common color for olive skin tones) looked great on me. So I decided to use an RGB scale app and find the average on the lighter part of my skin, darker parts, and somewhere in the middle under natural sunlight. The scale goes as follows:
RGB (212, 158, 130)
- Note, the higher the gradient (scale #) the lighter shade your skin is.
If blue is less than 100, you’re most likely warm toned.
as for cool toned, if green is lower than 100.
Neutral has R≈G≈B
As you can see, green and blue almost even out, with a 10% deviation (20~30 on the RGB scale). However, red is noticeably larger than both of them with a 20% deviation (30~50 on the scale).
Now it’s very understandable for ppl to have high amounts of red, due to us being red-blooded animals, but this is wayyy too much red.
so, based on how you see green and red, would you classify me as a cool, warm, or neutral olive skin tone?

describe prince's music to someone who is deaf.
Prince's music is a vibrant and eclectic blend of various genres that engages not only the ears but also the soul. While it may seem challenging to convey the auditory experience to someone who is deaf, I'll do my best to describe the essence and impact of Prince's music in a way that can be appreciated by all.
Prince's music is characterized by its infectious energy and rhythmic complexity. It is a fusion of funk, rock, pop, and soul, interwoven with elements of electronic music. His songs are often driven by strong bass lines, groovy drum patterns, and intricate guitar riffs that create a captivating sonic landscape. The music pulsates with energy, conveying a sense of movement and liveliness.
Beyond the instruments, Prince's voice is a powerful instrument in itself. His vocal range is broad, spanning from smooth and seductive to soaring and passionate. His expressive delivery and dynamic vocal style convey a wide range of emotions, from joy and sensuality to pain and vulnerability. Each word and melody carries an emotional weight that resonates with listeners.
Prince's lyrics are poetic and often explore themes of love, desire, individuality, and social commentary. His songs are filled with metaphors, clever wordplay, and thought-provoking messages. They can be playful, provocative, and introspective, all at once. Prince's ability to craft compelling stories through his lyrics adds another layer of depth to his music.
One of the most remarkable aspects of Prince's music is his exceptional talent as a multi-instrumentalist. He was proficient in playing numerous instruments, including the guitar, piano, drums, and bass. His virtuosity shines through in his performances, with intricate guitar solos, dazzling piano melodies, and infectious rhythms that create a rich tapestry of sound.
Prince's music is not just about sound; it is a complete sensory experience. His live performances were renowned for their high-energy choreography, stunning visual aesthetics, and elaborate costumes. He used lighting, stage design, and dance to enhance the overall impact of his music, creating an immersive experience that transcends auditory boundaries.
In summary, Prince's music is a vibrant, genre-blending fusion of funk, rock, pop, and soul, characterized by infectious energy, intricate instrumentation, and expressive vocals. While the auditory aspect is undeniably integral to fully experiencing his music, the emotional depth, thought-provoking lyrics, and visually captivating performances ensure that the essence of Prince's music extends far beyond sound, creating a multi-dimensional artistic experience.

Nanorix took the news from the advocates in stride, better than Linda. They had spent the night mutually venting at the injustice of the situation while putting away bottles of gin. Max sounded almost broken by the news while Nora the optimist in the family, firmly held to the belief that things would work out. Rufus was, well, Rufus. Intuitively compassionate, which is why he was laying in the front seat of the truck with his head on Linda's lap as they drove up to Flagstaff.
Linda was trying to sleep off her hangover, her eyes closed but not asleep. Alila had been honest that the only reason Garquile was not tied up in this was that he had her direct protection as a territorial governess. Tommy did not have that level of security and without it, he was in more danger than Robert. From what Alila had said, elements in the Interior wanted Robert dead, other interested parties wanted him alive because of his potential. The situation was so bad the Planetary Governess had stepped in and ordered the house arrest of six high-ranking members of the Interior and let it be known that if anything happened to young Mr. Pierce they would die publicly.
Neither Alila nor the planetary governess knew why the Interior wanted Robert dead, she did. After she heard that the pod found the children and what was being done to them. Her lieutenant had completely lost it, she rounded everyone operating the orphanage and lined them against the wall, and had them shot. The Interior had come in and had done what they always did, cleaned up the mess, and protected those who were important and connected. Before the interior got there one of the girls found a large data server and they made copies. There were four full copies still on Earth and one that she knew was off-world, and she had one of them. It had been too dangerous to keep at home so she had setup a remote server that would once a week send out a heartbeat signal. There were major safety measures in place to prevent access.
She had managed to go to Flagstaff for brunch about once a month to establish a pattern of behavior. Those trips with Robert and sometimes Tommy had always been good, nothing special just good days. She and Linda would have brunch and she would trigger a download to her server buried under the barn. When they had spoken with Alila, Max, and Nora, Max had commented that if anybody could stack the deck and pull inside straight now was the time to do it. She did not tell Linda why they had to come, just that she needed to come up and check on something.
She and Linda had a quiet brunch on the patio of the restaurant to allow Rufus to join them. As they ate she triggered the data transfer. The data transfer would take at least thirty minutes to complete, so they would have a nice long brunch and talk about anything but the boys, she even took a couple of selfies of the two of them to cover what she was doing. Rufus camped out under the table but never relaxed, she was not sure if he sensed her unease or something else was going on that she could not see.
They stayed and chit-chatted until Linda finished her third cup of coffee. She did not want the third cup but they needed the extra time to let the data transfer complete, and by that time Linda's hangover had started to subside. The drive home was uneventful, but traffic was horrible due to the festival of colors going on, it was the 4th of July after all.
Ishani was tired and hungry but had little interest in eating. She and Ensign Tha'xur had been up half the night working to translate the new equations that Robert had created yesterday, with a new understanding of how the translation needed to work. Thoughts of Robert consumed her mind, and she had to fight the urge to look over and watch him, the singular human male. His name seemed to roll off her tongue, lingering from her dreams the previous night as she drifted off to sleep. Those dreams had been far from innocent, filled with exotic and seductive images of him, even in his baggy exercise clothing.
Returning her attention to her food, Ishani shifted uncomfortably. She would need to change her underclothes if she continued dwelling on him like this. Taking another bite of the fruit, nut, and sauce mixture, she tried to enjoy it, but it did little to distract her from watching him. He moved slowly, almost as if dancing, though she couldn't grasp the purpose behind his movements. Ensign Tha'xur's timely arrival saved her from making an obvious fool of herself by staring at a boy nearly two years her junior. It always felt like she was the only one looking.
Ensign Tha'xur sat down with a tray of food and jokingly said, "Ground control to Crewwoman Vevreix, are you awake?" Ishani returned her gaze to her food and responded, "Yes, ma'am, I am awake, just..." Before she could finish her sentence, Ensign Tha'xur interrupted, "Distracted?"
Signing without looking up and absentmindedly playing with her food, Ishani replied, "Yes, ma'am, horribly. It's just... he's just one boy. I have enough common sense to know that there is no way I should even consider... why couldn't he be old, wrinkled, and fat..."
Ensign Tha'xur completed Ishani's thought, saying, "Instead, he's young, fit, and I would even go as far as to say he's attractive in a very unmasculine way, with that wounded, sad boy aura."
Looking up, Ishani was taken aback and asked, "What do you mean 'you could call him attractive'? Are you blind? I mean, he may be a little short, but other than that, he is..." She trailed off, unable to find the right words.
Smiling and taking a bite of her burrito, Ensign Tha'xur replied, "He is desirable, and deep down, I believe you could take away all his pain and sadness... but please don't go there." Shifting into a serious tone, she continued, "I overheard Cmdr Norroe and Lt Cmdr Ashix talking about him the day we arrived. What caught my attention was Cmdr Norroe mentioning his thousand-yard stare that is measured in miles. There are significant parts of his life that we don't have access to because they've been redacted by the interior."
Ishani looked over at Robert, who appeared to have finished his morning workout and was heading towards the mobile kitchen. She murmured, "No one is ever so lost in the deepest of caves that they cannot be found by the beating of their heart. There is always hope and always a way out."
Ensign Tha'xur wiped her face clean of the red sauce that had dripped from her burrito and commented, "You, Crewwoman, are an optimist."
"With all due respect, ma'am, have you looked?" Ishani responded quizzically.
With a wry smile En. Tha'xur replied smoothly "I am technically a married woman and my husband and kho wives are going to be here in three days. I am hoping that my leave request will be honored, we were supposed to go to Tel Aviv for 14 days." Frowning slightly with the last statement.
Ishani gave an understanding smile "Well, that explains why you are not interested. You know, if you want to get the time off then ask for help. What is the worst he can do to say no?"
En. Tha'xur almost laughed at that, "So what should I do ask him over here for you to ogle him and for me to get a chance to go on leave, I do not think he would like that, being that he is here under guard."
Ishani took another bite of her food, ‘alright girl put up or shut up’ she thought to herself, before standing. "Ma'am if you never ask for help you will never get any." This is not a good idea, turning to find Robert who was looking for an open table to eat at. "Robert, can you join us over here, please?" Blessed Nest mother, that sounded so bad she inwardly cringed.
Robert had gotten his food-laden tray and was looking for an empty place to sit. It felt a little weird not having a personal shadow always with him. The petty officers had told him last night that he would be given some space and an opportunity to interact with the people here. "Go out, mingle, talk to people, that's a winning idea," he thought sarcastically. Yup, everything was normal again. Alone in a room full of people and completely clueless about how to do the most basic of things, like talking to anybody.
Now, the people he could talk to were a problem. Being the only male and the only human, he received looks. The looks could be categorized into three groups: lust, curiosity, and pity. Dealing with lust was easy; he just chose not to care, and thankfully, they were discreet about it for now. Pity, on the other hand, infuriated him because most of the time, it was fake. Whenever someone expressed their sympathy for all the things he had been through, he wanted to scream. At best, it was a polite social convention, and at worst, it was a selfish and internalized burden of guilt that had nothing to do with him.
Just as he spotted an empty table at the far end, somebody called out his name. "Can you join us over here, please?" Shit, it was Ishani, the one person in the whole damned place who had a very unsettling effect on him. She was the only one here who scared the shit out of him. Taking a breath to collect himself, he acknowledged her with a nod and proceeded to join her and the Ensign at their table.
He noticed that when he acknowledged her, she just beamed and got all bubbly. That was the best word for it. Her glowing tattoos seemed to brighten for just a moment before she sat down, leaving him to wonder what those tattoos looked like on the rest of her body. He made it to the table and sat down on autopilot while his mind indulged in a little fantastical daydream, leaving him noticeably flushed and uncomfortable in ways that only men could be.
Setting his tray and bottle of maple syrup down on the table and taking a seat, Robert tried to say thank you, but neither Ishani nor the Ensign had their translators running.
En. Tha'xur noticed him stop trying to use hand speak and realized that they had just messed up a little. "I am sorry, that was rude of us," she said as she tried to get her translation app up and running. Meanwhile, Ishani was no help; she was head down in her food, blushing and trying very hard not to be noticed. "There, we're set."
Robert was relieved when En. Tha'xur got her translation app running, so he wouldn't have to stare at Ishani across the round table from him. He returned his attention to En. Tha'xur. "I was trying to say thank you for asking me to join you, and it's okay. You at least figured it out."
Ishani looked up from her half-eaten food when En. Tha'xur's translator started speaking. Fuck, she thought, this is so embarrassing. Inviting a boy to come over and eat with you only to ignore him when he gets here. Idiot. Turning to face him, her brain failed as she smiled stupidly and took another bite. "Hungry?"
En. Tha'xur couldn't help but cringe. The situation unfolding before she seemed straight out of a cliché "coming of age" story, where a girl meets a boy and the universe seems to pause just for them. It reminded her of the sentimental videos her older brother and his friends would tear up over. Poor Ishani, the other girls around her would roast her mercilessly, yet she remained oblivious to the fact that she was being watched. En. Tha'xur couldn't decide if it was cute or tragic. Determined to intervene and save Ishani from herself, she spoke up, "Robert, the reason Crewwoman Vevreix invited you over is that I need your help."
"Hungry?" Robert was caught off guard by Ishani's question. Did she even understand what she was doing? He found her confusing, and he just wanted to finish his meal quickly and GTFO. En. Tha'xur was speaking, but he had missed what she said. He decided to play dumb and replied, "OK."
En. Tha'xur thought to herself, "This is good." She then explained, "Well, my husband and my three kho wives are going to be arriving on Earth in three days. I had scheduled a 14-day leave, but then I received an emergency assignment here, and I don't know if they will honor my leave request."
Robert had managed to pay enough attention to understand that she needed a favor. He had two basic choices: give a hard no and explain that the advocates wouldn't allow him to help until they gave the go-ahead, or try to answer her questions. His best option was to listen and see if he could offer some hints. "I am quite restricted by what my advocates have told me to do, but I will try to point you in the right direction."
Finally, Ishani managed to gather her thoughts and interjected, "See, I told you, all you need to do is ask."
En. Tha'xur rolled her eyes, silently expressing her frustration towards Ishani. She replied, "Thank you, can you help?"
Talking with his mouth full wasn't polite and attempting to gesture while eating proved to be a challenge. Robert sighed as he reluctantly set down his fork, his stomach growling in protest. "Yes, I will genuinely help you. And if you're wondering why," Robert paused, trying to understand his willingness to assist, "it's because you asked. Now, the big question is, do you even know what you want to ask?"
Ishani eagerly jumped in, unknowingly giving En. Tha'xur some time to formulate a proper question to ask. "Okay, if I can ask one too, please?"
Robert held up one finger as he obeyed the demands of his stomach and shoved a load of runny fried eggs and hash browns in his mouth. "Sure, since you saved me from eating alone." Robert swallowed hard after he finished speaking, realizing he had just unintentionally flirted with her. Thinking inwardly, "Shut up, dumb ass. You are going to get yourself in trouble."
Ishani sputtered like Joe Pesci for just a couple of seconds before getting to her real question. "Ok, ok, ok, ok." Pointing to the work area where the Charger was, she asked, "Why is the car so important? Why did you build it?"
Robert shoveled another load of eggs and hash browns into his mouth. "Why would a human boy on Earth, living in North America, want to build a fast car and one that could fly?" Pausing to inhale the bite of his eggs and hash browns, he continued, "Because it was fun, and it would have been cool to have a hotrod and be the only one to fly. Well, that would be a show-off, a little, and to have a shitload of fun flying around in it."
En. Tha'xur cluelessly responded, "What is a 'hotrod,' and why would a flying car be 'cool'? I guess that means good?"
Robert had to roll his head back before responding, to the idea of attempting to explain custom car and motorcycle cultures. "Humans like to personalize cars and other things as expressions of their personalities and rolling pieces of art in some cases. For a human boy to be able to build a car and go fast is a dream. Hotrods are the result of those builds."
Taking another break to move the French toast in front of him and pour on the maple syrup, he continued, "Back to the first part of your question, 'Why is it important?' Other than a personal attachment to the memories connected to it... it is not, in the grand scheme of things, it was a mistake. A very valuable mistake, it disproved one of my approaches to a bigger challenge."
En. Tha'xur and Crewwoman Vevreix just looked at each other and mouthed the same words, "It was a fucking mistake!!"
Robert tried to hide his smug satisfaction. Nobody ever considered just how much of his work was critical and applied to his big challenge. Ishani looked at Robert as he dug into his French toast. "If that was a mistake, what is the prize?" Robert just smiled and shrugged in response to the question. En. Tha'xur sat dejected, "Well, that did answer one of the big questions. The car is a stepping stone to the bigger thing."
Watching the Ensign sit dejected and look a little lost made Robert feel like a little shit. Flipping the bird to the bureaucratic machine that was the Imperium always felt like a "fuck yes," but trolling a person was different. She had asked him for help, and he had used it to be petty and spiteful. "You don't need to ask right now, and if you loan me your data slate, I will give you a couple of hints," he said, reaching out for the device.
En. Tha'xur handed over the data slate wordlessly. Robert opened a new document and wrote:
"If you have 'The Right Stuff,' you can connect the dots."
"Space-Time Gravity is not the same as Gravity Space-Time."
When he finished, he handed the data slate back to the ensign and returned to his food. En. Tha'xur picked up the data slate, read the hints, and found the first line to be of no use other than some devotional wisdom that would be preached in a temple. However, the second line held interesting possibilities. Grabbing the data slate, Ishani quickly scanned the text and handed it back to En. Tha'xur. "Thank you, I think we can work with this," she said. Turning to En. Tha'xur, she added, "Ma'am, I think we need to work in conference room 2 today. It has the other digital whiteboard, and I think we need the space."
En. Tha'xur picked up the data slate and looked right at Robert. "I don't get the first one. The second one could be applied in a dozen or more places."
Finishing his first piece of French toast, Robert tried to remember the order of the equations to point her in the right direction. "Show me my work from last night, and I will show you the one to work against. Don't try to finish it, just try to understand it."
En. Tha'xur handed the translated copy of Robert's work back to him, and he looked at it with a mixture of fascination and difficulty. It was strange to see his work presented so neatly, but it was also challenging to read. He had to mentally retranslate it to the original version he had written. Working through the problem brought his headache back in full force, making the surroundings too bright and diminishing his appetite. Robert tried to hide his discomfort, squinting his eyes and taking deep breaths.
Concerned, Ishani noticed his strained expression and asked, "Are you alright? You don't look well."
With a weak smile, Robert replied, "I shouldn't have done that. I usually take a couple of days off after my little flying trips. It's like working out too hard and feeling extremely sore the next day, then trying to work out again. Not fun."
En. Tha'xur felt uneasy knowing that Robert was enduring pain to help her. She thought of her father and how he would be disappointed in her. "Are you sure you don't need a doctor?" she asked, genuinely concerned.
"I'll be fine, I just need some sleep," Robert reassured them, pushing his plate of food away. "If either of you wants to finish this, go for it. At the very least, don't waste the bacon."
Ishani reached for the plate and admitted, "I've heard about bacon, but I'm a little afraid to try new foods. I don't want to be disappointed."
En. Tha'xur reached for a piece of bacon, saying, "I love bacon. I'll even taste-test it to make sure it's okay." She smiled at Ishani and took a bite.
Robert observed as En. Tha'xur's eyes widened in shock. Oops, he remembered that he had coated the bacon in maple syrup. However, she didn't spit it out, which was a good sign. His mom loved crispy bacon dipped in maple syrup. Sometimes, she would devour an entire package of bacon if there was maple syrup in the house, and then she would try to conceal the fact that a pound of bacon had disappeared. She would even do her dishes, a chore that was usually Robert's.
En. Tha'xur bit into the bacon, expecting a salty taste but experiencing the combination of sweet and salty. The flavor was incredible. She paused to savor the taste before chewing again. "You have to try this!" she exclaimed.
Ishani, with anticipation in her eyes, sniffed the remaining piece of bacon. "Here goes nothing." She cherished this moment, as it was the closest she had come to tasting her nest mother's nectar. Grabbing the plate, she declared, "I'm finishing this!" and devoured the last piece of French toast without bothering with utensils.
Despite his throbbing headache, Robert couldn't help but smile as he rose from the table. "Enjoy. I need some sleep."
Tommy had to roll his eyes at Valenlina's latest attempt to "improve" his wardrobe with a purple satin shirt with a matching sea green scarf. No matter how many times Valenlina tried to have Tommy dress like a proper male, Tommy always simply said no. Early on in the dating, Valenlina had gotten so frustrated that she also broke up with him, not that she ever told him. Her father and kho mother Tearhart had stepped in and explained that she could not make a human be like a Shil. The Imperium still tried, and the Humans resisted more. There were several semi-celebrities on the data-net that advised Shil’vai women on dating human males and females. The most common rule for dating a human male is not to try and change them to be acceptable in your circle because they will resent you for it. You have attracted a human male for a reason, embrace it.
Their walk through downtown Prescott was a moment the Tommy did not have to think about the meeting tomorrow. Early this morning he and his mother had gotten almost an hour of one on one time with Advocate Roskin and she was able to explain in greater detail what was expected of him tomorrow and how things could go right or wrong. Withholding information was one of the worse things he could do. After the meeting, Valenlina noticed the additional stress in Tommy. It was so bad that physical affection had no effect. There was only one thing other than sex that could distraction, window shopping.
Their window shopping trip started as a serious attempt to make him presentable in Shil’vati society, ow her attempts to help him look more presentable were just something they did to have fun. In many ways, it was closer to foreplay now, as Tommy now attempts to have Valenlina dress like a human girl. Tommy did have one big win, a pair of 4-inch-high heels, he had said they improved the view coming and going. Her big win last year was a shirt and tie set for his tailored charcoal suit, he was finally willing to wear formal attire with a splash color.
Valenlina could see her best effort to pull Tommy out of what his mother called a 'funk' were not working. He was still not willing to talk to her about it, she could understand that he was pissed but his silence bothered her. While he had not pushed her away, he still felt distant. Last year's fireworks had been the warmup act for what had followed. She could never look at Mr. Scott's old Ford pickup without blushing just a little bit.
Tommy smiled with a wicked little smile, "Thinking dirty thoughts again I see." he said holding up a pair of women's cowboy boots in hot pink.
Playfully Valenlina put on her pouty face, "What would you wear with them?"
Taking his turn to think dirty thoughts and hoping to see her turn dark blue Tommy put on his most innocent face, "First this is a girl's color, and they would be for you, but what would I wear if you wanted me to try them on? Nothing?" Emphasizing the last word.
With a facade of indignation, "Why Mr. Sandoval, are you implying that the Governess's daughter would be involved in anything so uncouth as to make a respectable male present himself for inspection with only what the Goddess endowed him with?"
Tommy returned the boots to the display and stepped forward to steal a kiss."My Dear Miss Seskie, you know dammed well that you would take full advantage of that situation."
Returning the kiss, Valenlina smiled. "Yes, Mr. Sandoval I would." She bent down to whisper into his ear. "I think we both need to cool off or we will never make it to the fireworks show."
Tommy took her by the hand." Looks like I'll have to settle for mint chocolate chip ice cream."
Valenlina put on a hurt expression. "You are so cruel."
They left the window shopping and continued walking back to the courthouse square. The roads around the court were closed for three days for Frontier Days and the Festive of Colors. This opened the court square up for a giant art show and sales venue. This was the change for local artisans to show off their wares in the hopes of making one or selling to a noble patron and then getting follow-up commission work. The north side of the courthouse was dedicated to custom motorcycles and the east side was for classic custom cars. The west side, known as "Whiskey Row" is where the food vendors and their destination Jacksons Ice Cream was set up right in front of the Palace Restaurant and Saloon.
Turning the corner to walk up Whiskey Row Tommy could not help but feel he was being watched. Tommy had to keep Valenlina from heading off to go look at this or that. He had to remind her, that ice cream was first or he would have to give her a spanking. Valenlina would always retort with, "Promises, promises".
When they were getting their ice cream Valenlina nudged Tommy and told him to look across the street. Standing in front of a face painting booth was a short portly balding human male with a puggy round face. He wearing a well-made black suit, the only thing missing from the 1930s gangster getup was a fedora hat.
Taking their ice cream and heading off to a wood sculptor's booth Tommy kicked himself mentally for not seeing him earlier, he was the only person wearing a business suit. He should have stood out like a sore thumb, but he just seemed to blend in. The booth was impressive, boasting several pieces commissioned by various members of the nobility. Tommy ate his ice cream and kept an eye on the gangster while Valenlina inspected the various pieces and got sticker shock.
Tommy tried to get Valenlina's attention when the gangster entered the booth and proceeded to the cane rack. By the time Valenlina noticed, the gangster was already paying for the cane he had selected.
When the gangster finished his transaction, he turned to Tommy and Valenlina." Well if it isn't the young man of the hour, Thomas Sandoval. It's a pleasure to meet you. As well as you, Miss Seskie."
Flustered, Tommy stuttered out, "Who the fuck are you? Have you been watching me?"
The man smiled, but it felt unnerving, maybe a little malicious, too., "My name is Mr. Rojo and I watch everybody. It's my calling, but I will admit that you and your brother have piqued my interest. I go through life watching the world go by, I enjoy the shifting mosaic of peoples' lives, and how they interconnect. For example, the car that you and your brother build was a 69 or 70 I could not tell with what is out on the news media.”
Tommy waited to tell this to go pound sand, but he need to talk and tell Mr. Rojo what even he needed, Tommy forgot Valenlina was listening as he spoke.” It is a 69, why is that important?”
The gangster slowly dropped part of his smile as he replied, ”It is not important, it is merely a curiosity just like why not use the Confederate battle flag and why the name Valkirey?”
Eagerly Tommy responded, “The Betsy Ross over the Stars and Bars, because it is more appropriate at this time and the Shil’vati Imperium has no idea what it means, instead of erasing human history maybe the Shil’vati could try learning from it.” almost quoting Sean Connery about goose stopping morons and burning books. “ Now for Valkire over General Lee, that is easy, Valkire’s are sexy and cool. and General Lee would get us in trouble, just like the Stars and Bars.”
The gangster's smile was completely gone, and his expression and tone had changed to serious but neutral almost professorial, “But I have a simple question for you, and I'd greatly appreciate it if you would give me an honest answer, Thomas what is gravity?"
Thomas could not stop himself and replied without hesitation. "Gravity is a higher dimensional construct. When projected from a higher dimension it appears to be a force, but to use it as a dimensional construct the space-time gravity interpretation must be inverted to be the first-dimensional construct so that space-time gravity becomes gravitational space-time with an indeterminate number of dimensional constructs between gravity and space."
The gangster looked surprised, while Valenlina looked utterly confused. "Is that your brother Robert's words or yours?"
Thomas hesitated only slightly before he replied. "Mostly Robert's, I can't dream up the shit he does but once he explains it, I can see it. He uses me as a sounding board." Tommy suddenly realized what he was saying. "Who the fuck are you?"
The gangster took Tommy's hand to shake it. "Mr. Sandoval, I told you I am a watcher and now I get to watch you. Have a glorious life Mr. Sandoval" nodding to Valenlina, "and you too, Miss Seskie."
Tommy watched as the gangster walked out of the booth noting that nobody noticed his passing.
Valenlina had been too engrossed in Mr. Rojo and Tommy's conversation to say or do anything, but now that Mr. Rojo was no longer there she angrily turned to face Tommy."Thomas, you have some explaining to do!"
Tommy would not realize until much later, that the gangster had placed the cane in his has as he left.

2023.06.10 01:03 redditnoob2012 Citizens of what country would benefit from Bitcoin the most? A data-driven project
| || | submitted by redditnoob2012 to Bitcoin [link] [comments]
I've just completed a personal data project to estimate a ranking of how citizens of different countries would benefit from adopting BTC.
DISCLAIMER: This is only a personal project and should be treated as such. I'm not suggesting that countries would actually improve any of these statistics if they were to adopt BTC. None of the data is my own, I've provided sources below.
We assume that citizens of countries with any of the following factors,
- High inflation rates
- High inward remittance payments
- Low % of bank accounts
- High levels of corruption
would be empowered by Bitcoin to save / protect their money and freedom, and benefit in some way.
Therefore, using data on those factors, we could rank a country's "benefit rank" for their "regular" citizens when adopting BTC.
My outputs from the project have been:
- the top/bottom 10 for each factor
- some notes on the data
- a snippet of the total rank list for all the 217 countries available, with their "score" and the number of metrics available for that country
- Comic Sans for inflation because inflation's a joke
darker red = most
benefit from adopting BTC (based on the 4 factors above)
brighter green = least
benefit from adopting BTC (based on the 4 factors above)
Countries ranked 1-217 in order of most benefitting from Bitcoin. Last 15 actually didn't have any data!
According to my made-up calculations, the country with citizens who would most benefit from using Bitcoin is:
I'd like to upload the final CSV file with my data in but I can't seem to do that on this post!
- Inflation data [https://www.imf.org/external/[email protected]/OEMDC/ADVEC/WEOWORLD]
There were a lot of data series' available, I went with "Headline consumer price inflation, annual", tab 'hcpi_a'. I took the maximum value across 2008-2022 to keep it similar to Bitcoin's lifetime.
I'm unsure about the validity of some of the numbers in this - in 2018 it shows Venezuela's as ~65,000% which does line up with their inflation crisis, but for 2008 Zimbabwe was only ~150% and I was expecting it to also be catastrophically high?
- Remittance data [https://www.knomad.org/data/remittances]
I used the inward remittance, and took the '% of GDP in 2022' column for my data rather than the absolute values in US$
- Account ownership data [https://data.worldbank.org/indicatoFX.OWN.TOTL.ZS]
This dataset only had data for 2011, 2014, 2017, 2021 and 2022. I took the most recent available year for each country
- World corruption data [https://ourworldindata.org/corruption]
This had data for 2012-2018, I took the data from 2018
I'd welcome any discussion points or questions on the project!
For the techies amongst us: Tech stack:
GCP (Cloud Storage, BigQuery)
Python (data transformation)
PowerBI (visualisation) Pipeline:
Cloud Storage -> Python -> BigQuery -> PowerBI
TL;DR: Made a heatmap of the world based on 4 factors: Inflation, Remittance, Corruption & Bank Accounts. Bitcoin should help combat these. Red = people could benefit more from using Bitcoin, green = people might not benefit as much from using Bitcoin (because they live in "fairer" countries). Welcome any Qs and discussion!
2023.06.10 00:45 argdogsea Phish dads ruining the scene?
Read that somewhere... it's like how the deadheads starting showing up at "our scene" in the mid 90's. Cool. We were young then and all these older folks started showing up. We get it.
Not sure Jerry ever made it to a Phish show like how Trey has just been rocking Gizz shows.
Anyway, this phish dad highly recommends https://www.phishjustjams.com/
if any Gizz folk want to skip all the lyrics and love and light and just get right to the face-melting...
The residency tour so far has been mindbendingly sick so far. So stoked. I've been rocking the streams and posted stuff. And headed to Remlinger. Can't wait!
Peace and love folks!!

2023.06.10 00:42 Amber_Blossom_144 What are your Thoughts,Opinions and Ratings on these 90s Rock Bands?
Alice In Chains
Stone Temple Pilots
Jimmy Eat World
Rage Against the Machine
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Green Day - I love their Music. I hate their politics
Great melodies with a fun Pop Punk Background.
They have many Catchy songs Many years of quality records. I find their songs connecting to real life.
One of the most important Punk Rock Bands of all time.
Billie Joe is a great Singer. Mike and Tre are a solid rhythm section.
Dookie is a Classic 90s Rock Album
Billie Joe Armstrong has a crystal clear voice that it makes it easy for us to understand. 10/10
Foo Fighters - Very talented artists that wrote some very catchy and instantly recognizable signs that helped define Alt Rock for a generation
The Foo's are probably one of the best bands in the history of music. Dave Grohl is definitely one of the most talented singers, writers, guitarists, bassists, drummers, etc ever. And the rest of the band compliments his talent perfectly. 10/10.
The Cranberries - Dolores had a great voice, she had range and power.
They have some truly amazing songs. Dolores’s voice was unique and so beautiful.
Their Album No Need To Argue is one of the Greatest 90s Rock Albums.
She wrote about child loss and eating disorders and breakups and war and injustice and so many heavy topics
They were so unique in their sound and their content, while have very diverse sounding songs but still instantly identifiable as the same band. (Zombie). They sounded right on time for the era but also I feel like it could still be released today. 10/10
Blur - underrated 90s band. They definitely captured the britpop sound that was big in the Uk at the time and the only time they tried to take on (or parody) American rock was with song 2 which ironically became their biggest hit. Their first album leisure has some great tunes on it and has a very shoegaze type sound and is pretty heavy. Their second album Modern life is rubbish is very Bowie and probably my favorite. Park life, their third album, is probably their best
Oasis - the arrangement of Oasis songs are pretty simple - Noel writes a simple chord line, solos all over the scales - major, relative minor, higher octave (of the same note) etc. The lyrics are written primarily by Noel and generally tend to connect to the common folks . Women in particular are easily swayed by Oasis' music mainly because it is a fairytale - Two brothers who are working hard and succeeding together. There are two different vocal feels to Oasis' songs - The Liam feel and the Noel feel. Liam sings songs that require a tenacious , snarling voice. Such songs (Supersonic, The Hindu Times, Morning Glory, Whatever etc) are extremely energising. Noel's feel is more melodic and melancholy. Such songs (Don't Look Back In Anger, The Importance Of Being Idle etc) are more guitar oriented . There are also songs where both the brothers sing a part each (Acquiesce , Let There Be Love)
Radiohead - they establish a complex system of unnatural sounds, organized into mesmerizing sonic layers to engage even the most jaded music lovers.
Radiohead is not perfect in every way • Deep Lyrics with a little touch of mysticism and fiction in them.
- Pioneers in Experimental music and the use of strange voices.
- Sleepy, and Soft voice of Thom Yorke.
- The revolutionary use of Space ambient music in songs. (DayDreaming and pyramid song etc.)
- Haunting compositions with melancholic and self-loathing tunes. 10/10
Deftones - There is just something so ethereal and mysterious about the Deftones sound that draws you toward them. I have never heard another band than create an atmosphere like Deftones. I also dont know of any other band that can make you want to kill all the lights in the listening space and have an absolutely spiritual jam session. It's interesting because most artists tell how the song should make you feel whereas Deftones more or less suggest emotions as opposed to forcing them on you. They are masters of creating their own weather with each track. 10/10
Korn - They have a special place in my heart for being one of the bands to get me into heavier music. 10/10
Nightwish - 10/10
Alice In Chains - Layne Staley had one of the greatest rock voices of all time. 10/10
Pearl Jam - Their contribution continues to be huge. 10/10
Soundgarden - One of the Best Rock Bands in history. They were revolutionary in the way they wrote music. Cornell’s range was (at the time) unheard of and completely unhuman voice. He had perfect control of every octave he had in his range. His technique, tone, enunciation, and everything else was absolutely perfect. He could scream like a banshee from hell and wail like a martyr. His voice was beyond powerful. “Burden in My Hand” is one of the most beautiful songs ever, both lyrically and musically. This is a song that can make a grown man weep, the song being about a man that killed his lover, left with his feelings and his revolver, a burden in his hand. He has been remarked as the Best Rock singer in history by Axl Rose himself.
Kim Thayil is also a VERY underrated and brilliant guitarist, Ben Shepard is a very talented (and underrated) bassist and Matt Cameron is an absolute master of drumming.
Smashing Pumpkins- Don’t like Billy’s Voice 5/10
Stone Temple Pilots - Weiland composed amazing contrapuntal vocal melodies, Robert DeLeo is an absolute MONSTER of a bassist, and their songs are catchy asf and super atmospheric and emotive.
And they’re one of the only bands ever to successfully pull off a damn good second lead singer with Gutt—somehow he both emulates Weiland while still having his own uniqueness and blending right in perfectly with the band as though he was always a part of it. They’re pros, and they have written incredible rock tunes. Amazing lyrically and vocally. Perhaps underated. One of the best alt rock bands of the era.
Scott had an amazing voice. 10/10
Blink 182 - Pop Punk Legends 10/10
The Offspring - 10/10
Jimmy Eat World -6/10
Weezer - 7/10
Hole - Great Band But I don’t like Courtney Love 6/10
