Ok I have heard bits and pieces but I feel like I don’t actually know anything concrete. Who is the mysterious stranger and how does one find him? I have a quest that says to find him 9 times and i havent found him once playing consistently for 2+ weeks. Should I skip it?

2023.02.03 05:55 Sad_Career_9604 Credit Card Recommendations for Student
Hi, I am a student and was looking to get a new card specifically for travel. In the month of March I am spending $1000+ on work travel (~$800 for a hotel and $250 for transportation) that I will be reimbursed for so I think it might be worth to open a credit card with a signing bonus but am not sure which one. The next time I'll be spending this much on travel won't be until OctobeNovember. Does anyone have any recommendations for credit cards or advice if I should even open a new one? I have included some information about me below.
-BofA Visa (choice of 3% on travel, online shopping, or dining) and Discover student cash back (5% rotating categories)
FICO score- 750
Oldest Account Age-1 year and 6 months
Chase 5/24 status: 2/24
Average monthly expenses-
$50 for groceries
$50 for online shopping
$30 for dining
Everything else is pretty much covered by my parents
Open to Business Cards: Sure? Not too sure what the difference is
What's the purpose of your next card: Cashback
Do you have any cards you've been looking at: Not really
Are you OK with category spending or do you want a general spending card: Not really picky but am thinking something travel-related would be the move

2023.02.03 05:53 JuniorOgun12 God of War Ragnarok's interpretation of Ragnarok is the worst part about the story.
I know that games are not obligated to follow mythology to a T, the Greek trilogy didn't. But Fimbulwinter and Ragnarok are ripped from Norse mythology, so I was hoping they wouldn't neglect it. The reveal of this change kills all tension in the story. There is no rush to stop the apocalypse that will threaten friends & family, as the game instead takes a much slower, light-hearted pace with less focus on epic set pieces: Atreus does chores for a giant, goes on an ultimately pointless fetch quest for Odin, makes friends in Asgard, and tries to solve Thor's daddy issues. By the end of the game, almost all your allies are alive and well. It's especially disappointing compared to the grim ending of the last game.

2023.02.03 05:50 Dravv Moved into newly renovated rental property and there is no mail box for my unit?
Reaching out here because I have honestly no idea where I would find this information and I don’t want to show up to the local post office sounding like a complete lunatic.
So, I just moved into an apartment at a rental property in New Jersey that was recently purchased and renovated by a property management group. When I signed the lease and received the key to the apartment, I was not given a mail box key despite me knowing that they have those outdoor key accessed mail boxes at the center of the grounds. When I asked the manager about mail she told me I would have to take a copy of my lease to the post office and they would give me the key to my mailbox, and specifically said “this is because the mailboxes belong to them and not us.” This seemed odd to me as I have never lived in an apartment with the outdoor silver mail boxes where the landlord did not provide the keys.
Out of curiosity, I decided to swing by the outdoor mail boxes and noticed that there isn’t even one for my unit. In fact, my building seems to be short a full 6 boxes, as it has 22 units and only 16 boxes.
I reached back out to the property manager this afternoon regarding this and the response I was given was “Unfortunately, I don't have any information on this. You will have to ask the post office. Those mailboxes belong to them.”
It seems ludicrous to me that a company would purchase and renovate a property and then not ensure they are enough mailboxes to cover the available units. I guess my question is, IS this actually the landlords responsibility to provide? Does this very from state to state? If this is the USPS’s responsibility, what channel do I need to go through to get this fixed, and how long could it take?
I am already planning to set up a PO Box, because my assumption is that this will not be fixed anytime soon, regardless of who is responsible. I’m pretty much just looking for the peace of mind of knowing who needs to take care of this.
If you managed to read this entire ramble, thanks! Lol

2023.02.03 05:48 DressUpFighterOnline Confirmations on the February 2nd ExStream
- A Sweet Surprise:
- Merchant of the Winds!
- Exchange old materials for Golden Beryls and Advance Dungeon Ticket box. 10 materials for each exchange for up to 5 exchanges per day.
- If you don't have old material, this event also give you materials to exchange as well.
- Share Your Expertise:
- This will be focused advancement class guide (skills, talisman, runes, etc.)
- We also look for details and special tips & trick on the class that are not clearly explained.
- KDnF is selling their merchandises here, and they wanted to see our opinions on some the items (not sure where they were going with this though).
- No package raffle this stream.
- Can we finally get popular old avatars without any purchase limits and trade shenanigans on a regular and constant basis, also how about bringing back the cera avatars withdrawn from the shop.
- We wanted to prevent price gouging and messing with market price.
- Are there any plans to bring back really old event auras like the Arad Runner avatars?
- There was an issue that many users have lost their emblems when upgrading from Arad Walker aura to Arad Runner aura. So they don't have any plan for this rerun. But there's are any other one you wanted to re-release, be vocal and let them know.
- Webstore black diamond, what happened?
- The Avatar and aura has been going on for a few years and no update. But there will be a new event for DFO privilege user and coming soon on 1st half of this year.
- Does Neople have any plans to deal with the delay of content in DFOG? To give a bit of context: Ispins to Warpath was around 2 months for KDNF. While Warpath to Bakal Raid was around 1 month (this was with delays as well). DFOG's update from Ispins to Warpath is approaching 3 months and may even be 3 months and a half+. Warpath to Bakal Raid from the sounds of the latest ex streams confirmations point that it could be 2 months+. It feels as if DFOG is once again falling behind after keeping a decent pace at the start of 110, which could be detrimental as Warpath could've easily help prep more players for Bakal Raid. Moreover, it feels discouraging to hear that the reason why reworks or other patches aren't being brought is because Warpath/Bakal could be delayed for many more months, when we're already at a very delayed timeline.
- For this case, the gap between Ispins and Machine Revolution is higher but it's because of our update schedule mechanic. You guys know we have big updates every 3 months or so. On our 8th Anniversary, we will one of our developer to talk about this topic, so stay tune for transparency.
- Is it possible to make Master Contracts more available? Whether it be through events or available monthly for gold in the CERA shop?
- We consider giving out Master Contracts through events
- Is it possible to increase the Avatar Inventory space and/or the Avatar Closet?
- Will look into data to see how widespread this problem and will get back to you about that.

- Q: Valentine day plan?
- Amir - Single awareness day
- Sungahime - More trend of love and appreciation for friends and family
- Q: Which NPC would you give the event Sweet Sensitivity Boost to
- Sungahime - Red Witch
- Amir - Woon or Minet
- Q: Why did you choose your main? What are the biggest Pros and Cons?
- Sungahime - Witch, started from Nexon DFO, cool asthenic and mechanic (e.g. candy explosion). Biggest pros, lots of installation skills and mobility. Biggest cons, install skills and 2A no y-axis range.
- Amir - Rogue, started as Ranger, but then she loves the architype. She was more used to Shadow Dancer on other game but DFO's take on Rogue was very different. You can play her really fast and roll your face around the keyboard. Great evasion, double jump, i-frame. But if you compare her to Berserker or Spectre, she can feel weaker. Not a lot of flexibility with Tasliman.
- Q: Do you have any bug moment or memorable moment on DFO recently?
- Sungahime - Some bug with Ispins with Itrenok's rock
- Amir - 1st Ispin on male striker, took her 7 hours to solo Ashcore. She was not dodging and doing mechanic correctly. She invested a lot on Fire damage on her striker, so that didn't help.
- Q: Any shoutout?
- Sungahime - halfmango doing livestream and live translation on twitch channel about KDnF talk-to-developer on February 4th. His reddit announcement here.

2023.02.03 05:46 Ovirfrushtm Promoters Bootcamp and Speaking Driven Business – Dan Kennedy and Ron LeGrand
What will you learn in Promoters Bootcamp and Speaking Driven Business?
This home study course's Promoter section will teach you:
Source By: Promoters Bootcamp and Speaking Driven Business – Dan Kennedy and Ron LeGrand
- How to start from scratch and have a profitable seminar business in any field you choose up and running in 90 days.
- How to find the best speakers who can consistently deliver sales and virtually guarantee your success. Poor speakers result in low revenue. You will become wealthy if you are a good speaker.
- How to design a seminar format that will double room sales. It takes skill to plan an agenda and decide when to sell and when not to sell. If you fail here, you're doomed.
- How to properly light the room, where to place the sales table, and how to manage traffic flow. What you should never do under any circumstances. If you break this rule, you will not like this business and will have no idea why you failed. Follow it, and you'll be able to mock all the stupid seminar companies that don't get it.
- What your on-site helpers should know in order to double or triple sales, and what they should not do in order to avoid killing sales.
- How to handle show confirmations in order to increase your show rate and lower your cost per attendee. This is a multi-step process that is simple and straightforward, but it is critical to your success. I'll show you how to automate it.
- How to reduce or completely eliminate refunds. It is painful to have a sale fall through. It's 80% your fault if it does.
- How to choose the right media to fill seats while keeping marketing costs to a minimum. This is one of the industry's best-kept secrets, and it's what keeps most people away. If you don't master this, your career as a promoter will be cut short. Once you obtain the key to the vault from my faculty, your business will quickly grow to the size you desire. In fact, I'd argue that this is the most important thing to learn in the seminar business, but my friend Wright Thurston disagrees.
- Who to target, how, when, and how frequently. Solicit the wrong prospects, and the results will be disastrous. Every detail for every type of media will be covered, and checklists will be provided to ensure that nothing is overlooked.
- How to run free events to acquire customers versus paid events to teach and sell, and why you should know the difference. For the record, if you want to stay in business, all events are sales events.
- How to design a boot camp to maximize learning and create raving fans among your customers. In the last 11 years, I've taught over 300 boot camps, and thousands of success stories and hundreds of millionaires have resulted from them.
- How to turn your seminar business into a passive cash flow machine that generates a substantial income long after your seminars and boot camps have concluded.
- How to quickly assess your success and know the bottom line the day after the event. I'll give you the template we used for this report as well as others that will be very useful for your tracking.
- How to choose the best hotels for a seminar or boot camp, as well as how they differ. If you don't know this, you could easily lose half of your attendees to a free seminar while attracting the wrong audience for the other half.

2023.02.03 05:41 The_N00bster I am loosing my fucking mind at my ex for staying with her toxic grooming boyfriend.
I know this title seems bad, but I am supporting her through it and I have been so patient. I also haven't blamed her, or shown any anger to her for being in this situation. But holy shit am I still frustrated. He is so painfully this huge piece of shit and it took her so long to realize that. I know she's the victim in all of this, but that doesn't change the fact it's not frustrating to deal with. She is 18 now, and he is 46 and knew him since she was 12. He actively hit on her when she was 17 (maybe more so but that's all I was aware of) and waited until her 18th birthday to wait until she's drunk (while he was sober) to sleep with her, so yeah I think it was rape too. I don't know if there is just a more clear cut case on someone being a groomer and it took her months to realize that. I know why, because of the emotional connection and she felt like she could trust him, but wow it killed me on the inside on how long it took her to realize. Now she realizes he's done all of this but still cares for the guy. I fucking hope he dies in the most horrific way possible and she is there caring for him. Holy shit does that anger me. I can't yell at her either, because for one that's unproductive but two, it's still not her fault for all of this. He took advantage of her. So, I just have no way to deal with all of this pent up frustration. She wants to leave him, but also lives with him so it's difficult, and I am loosing my sanity thinking about it. The situation gets worse too, I covered the main bits, but he is also controlling and doesn't let her have male friends (she keeps me secret), has anger issues, etc, just a more clear cut piece of shit. I hope karma is real so he has the biggest downfall I can only dream of. I almost never get angry, but I am at my fucking limit now.

I just bought the Sony xm5 over the ear headphones and I'm using them for working out. Does anyone have recommendations for ear pad covers to help stop the sweat wear and tear?
I had the older Sony wh-xb900n and used them strictly for working out. I used them for 4 years and they still looked and felt brand new.
I don't know if the xm5 is build as durable or not.

2023.02.03 05:38 Gullible-Nature8522 Gears Town
Electro City is a story of tiny creatures called megawatts who live in our power grid. They travel inside our power lines and live in power stations and transformers. One day a blackout from a thunderstorm threatens everything they hold dear to them. It's up to Frizzy and her friends to travel across the world to save her town. They travel inside power lines, internet cables and under the ocean to find the creator of electricity. With his help they can save Frizzi's town.
Frizzy here! I've lived in this magical wonderland called Gears Town my whole life. It's full of old-time folks that wear these big straw hats and cowboy boots. We are in the desert after all. It's a small, quiet town with loud people. Spittoons, saloons, wooden old western shops, and our local dog named Rusty Bolts. It's dusty, rough, and full of sand, but with a little shine, I think this place could really start to look up. That's where I come in. Frizzi's the name my family gave me because, well, I'm so frizzy. I rip things apart and build them bigger, better, stronger, and shocking! The rest of my family doesn't really see things the way I do and although we don't share the same interests, I believe one day I could show them the future. By the future I mean the internet. That thing has got it all. Funny videos, crazy people, new and interesting ideas that could really change my town for the better. I can just see it now. (Funny daydream moment of the town in the future)
In my town there lived a colony of furry little creatures called megawatts, that's us. These crazy charged creatures were always jumping around and conducting currents all through the town. Town by town these little furiously cute creatures lived in each and every electrical transformer. You know those cylinder things way up high on those wooden poles by the side of the road. Those little buggers created our entire infrastructure that built the world. Before that there were the ashes (Little fire guys that dripped ash). They were en-caged in these old lanterns and had to be lit every night. (Picture British ashes with posh accents). They used air to travel from lantern to lantern. (Hot air balloon and zeppelin transport with hand gliders and old TVs in their lantern community inside the lantern) (steampunk, kind of magical fairy dust people) Thankfully, those guys are gone, they were so rude. Now with the advancements of Sizzlman Frankbuzz (benjamin franklin) (show him flying a kite and getting shocked as an ash creature) and nikola teswatt (Nikola tesla) we can connect all these communities together to create something even better! The mighty and extravagant Giga City! This city was the substation to the whole process, I'm talking shiny streets, cool cars, and anything your heart desires. (Chrome city with greenery)
These guys made everything possible for the Megawatts and their smaller towns. The city was gigantic and filled with fun and cool things to do. Zipping trains that could just float in the air suspended by magneto creatures. Roads buzzing with the energy of the city. This was no slump, but the magic really happened where it all began, the power plant. This place is the mecca of life itself. It was like the IKEA of the world. Whatever you needed, they had it. Everything stemmed from this place. We all praised the big, towering stacks cutting the clouds in the sky. Nobody was ever allowed to go there but every night I would look across the city and imagine what they could be doing there. What a dream that could have been. (daydreaming). Well, back to my normal routine. I'm a sky climber. I change out lights for the digital creatures. These towers are so high you could see the entire coast. I even get to talk to my buddy Digi. He's like a messenger for the giants(humans). His whole family does it. My Mom says I can only travel in my hometown, but I imagine what it would be like to see the other side. (Dark clouds closing in the distance with lightning and thunder) I better get home, said Frizzy.
I slide down the rope that secures me to the radio tower as the thunder starts to shake and rumble the tower sending rumbling through the metal surface. I Zipline down to electrical wires hanging from the tower which go to the ground. I'm on my way home as I grind through the lanes on my electric roller blades. All the lights on the street level (inside the wire streets) start to dim as lightning slams into the dry desert ground. I shoot my hook gun and grapple onto the lights avoiding falling debris. Almost home, I just have to get there before our town closes the big metal doors as they brace for the storm's impact. I slide under the vault doors and make it into our town center. My house is just down the road. I fly into my bedroom window as the whole house is going under lockdown with sheets of metal locking us all inside. The storm rages as we rush to the basement. Over the radio we hear our mayor comforting all the citizens of Gears Town. A piece of wood and shrapnel cut into our ceiling in the basement and water dripped from above. The lights sizzle, dim and everything fades to darkness. We fell asleep on the couch in the basement surrounded by water beginning to flood.
The next day we woke up and put our house defenses offline. As we all gathered to the town center the mayor of the city said on the intercom that nobody was allowed to leave the city center or beyond. Nobody in our town had electricity and our colors were beginning to fade.(from yellow to black).(faint yellow now). I can help, I yelled out to the crowd. My parents told me I couldn't go and it was too dangerous to go anywhere. I had to do something or everyone and everything would crumble. Our town was losing power drastically by the hour. Flowers were wilting and our home was starting to glitch out. I couldn't just sit here and watch everything vanish. I ran to the back of the wall behind the bushes where I used to sneak out at night to hang out with digi. I jumped on my rollerblades and set off as fast as I could. The highway roads were crumbling and overgrown with vegetation. There I saw the Surges. Dressed in brown with rust covering their metal robotic bodies. One of them yells out "intruder alert," and I jump into the air with my hook gun and grapple onto the street lights. The surges start shooting net guns to try to capture me. They seem to feed off of electric creatures as I spot little yellow guys in their circular bellies. Nice try guys! See you never! I made it up the rope and to the signal tower where digi was. I tell him everything and we make a plan to find the inventor of electricity to save my home town. We travel down the slide inside the cell tower where Digi has his car waiting. It's unlike anything I've ever seen. The streets are full of tvs and colors. Everything is chrome and shiny with trees growing from the ceiling downward. People are traveling alongside us in these vacuum tubes so fast. We make it to his house to gear up and look up where to find the inventor of electricity. His room is filled with computers and tiny walking robots. Even his dog is a robot made of tiny robots. You could change the walls of his room by pressing a button. Now we're at the beach, now we're in the city, now we're in space. Digi showed me everything I have ever dreamed of. On his 3d computer he found a link to the inventor of the internet. All the way in a place called Great Britain. "That's where we need to go, Frizzy," said Digi. From there, we put on our cool tech suits and set off for a journey of a lifetime.
We took Digi’s car to the train station and set off. We got our own room full of snacks. I explored the train as it took off into the sky traveling at the speed of light. So much to see on the outside. (Fiber cable is clear). (Details of places). Projectors and screens showing moving pictures of different places around the world. One of them called "Japan" had cherry blossoms with the pedals falling down on the screen and the pedals were 3d so they were falling into the train through the moonroof. Digi told me of the places in stories that amazed me. Not even Digi has been this far before, goodbye small-town USA, hello the world. Suddenly, all of the lights in the train turned blue, the conductor over the speaker saying fasten your seatbelts, we are going below!!! and we plunged straight down. I grit my eyes closed as Digi laughs at me. I open my eyes to these colorful creatures called fish. So many of them are in big and small groups. Our train finally hits the bottom when the conductor says over the speaker, welcome to the Atlantic Ocean, Dinner is served! Our train lights up and everything around us starts to open up. It's like a huge city highway underground. So many stores, types of weird people. On the outside huge fish and octopus in neon colors. We fall asleep on the train to tranquil sounds and jellyfish floating above us. (Train has a moonroof).
I wake up to breakfast and Digi stuffing his face. Over the speaker I hear next stop, Ireland! Digi and I looked up on his laptop of the things in Ireland and found funny videos. Our train was coming into the station. We got off at the stop but nobody else did. It was like a ghost town. A man of the ash people in a funny uniform with a bagpipe walked up to us and we started saying "yorgin torgin noopie googie." He then started dancing up and down making weird sounds with his instrument. One of his eyes was googlie. Digi hit the top of his head which resets him, and his eye went back into place. He said to us, "whater youus want hmmmm?" We told him how we needed to get to Britain, and he said, "Ol righty over here Yun snappers." He led us to his house which was on a brick road. Looking to the outside we only saw lanterns. No internet or electricity. It was odd but also pretty cool. His house was steampunk with gears and cogs and a smokestack coming out of his house. It looked like a shoe but full of machine parts. He sat us down and drew up a map. His steampunk cat jumped up on the table and greeted us. He stabbed the map and said, "right er here is what you want." He showed us the routes and told us to be careful of the dragons and elf people along the way. He threw his map back in his big treasure chest and showed us to the top of the transport tower where we saw a hang glider and a zeppelin and a hot air balloon. This is how you go, he told us. We picked up the hot air balloon and made off. On the land were goats and farmland. The winds started ramping us and it pushed us off course.
Crash, thud, our balloon was stuck on something as I get up to take a look outside. (Looks out over basket) I look over the edge to see a giant tower as our air balloon gets snagged on the side of it. We jump off as the balloon deflates and we land on the top of the tower where we see some fellow watts towards the middle of the tower. We approach them as they have dinner with an impeccable view. Digi taps on the man's shoulder and asks him where we were. He points to the city and says in a fancy accent with a bit of a mumble, "you are in the grand city of love, food, and dreams. You, my friend, are in France! We need to find London sir, I said. London my dear boy, London is very far, said the French man. He told us to come sit by him for some food. Yum static and protons-light particles, as they float in different colors around the dish like fireflies. He tells us how to get to London. We borrow his cool electric motorcycle and zip down the tower in the power lines. We see everything in the city. I snap pictures for my scrapbook. Digi and I come across a surge with enemies coming straight at us as we drive to our destination. Time for a detour Digi yells as he pulls a wheelie and jumps onto the internet wire down below us. We crash down into the tunnel sending us into a crazy vortex and we accidentally get sent into a house as we slide into the ethernet port of a nearby computer. We ding around inside the wire and get thrown into a laptop connected to the wire.
The light around us in the tunnel instantly goes into darkness. We are knee deep in beautiful baby blue water heading down the tunnel. We venture towards the end of the tunnel which is illuminated by an eye searing bright white light. It becomes more apparent the farther we walk towards it. We stand at the end of the tunnel looking down. Below us is a glistening waterfall flowing thousands of feet down into a green and mossy ravine with black sands. The ravine leading to a metropolis of lights and a mega city. We jump and glide through the air with our hang gliders. The air hitting our faces filled with mist from the waterfall and flying insects high in the sky. We look to see where the ravine leads to in the distance as we approach closer.
"This place looks wild '', it's a city built with 100 levels of towns and highways. Half all chrome in the city and half wildlife. Green trees growing in the sidewalk and vines growing on the chroma buildings. Everyone here is full of so much color. Everyone is wearing business suits and riding on sport bikes leaving rainbow trails behind on a blue led highway. We see a bike rack and borrow a bike and drive around looking for our way out of here. We stop off at a diner and take a seat. We overhear someone talking about the world beyond us as everyone ignores him. The cook behind the diner shouts the man's name demanding him to leave, "Stop with your nonsense Glitch!" He takes his coffee with his sign that reads "There's a world beyond, I've seen it". We follow the man outside where he is sitting on the street corner by his stuff. We approach him and ask him who he is and if he can help us. His face lights up and he tells us dreams of a world beyond this place. He tells us his name is Glitch and that people call him that because he can't do anything but dream. Glitch said he was born to dream and see the world. He was the result of a computer system glitch. (He was a malfunctioning digital creature who acted funny and glitched a little like someone was zapping him. (He has a hole in his shoe with a toe hanging out, he wears a cap on his head that is worn and owns a little cat named Leo) (Leo is a fat Chinese cat) He was unlike any of the other people here which acted like robots with no expression. We told him that we believed him and that we could help him see the world beyond here if he would help us try to find the outside world. He told us that he knows of a way but it's very dangerous and he needed our help to make it out. He said we had to venture up the 100 stories by climbing the mountain on the side of the 100-story building. This was the shortcut as we couldn't get into each level without clearance. The man brings out hiking gear inside of his tent in the alley and hands us the gear. We all get the gear on and walk to the mountain. Climbing it with the cold snowy files brushing across us. (Mountain is snow but instead of snow its white papers/files of a computer) We walk for miles and climb up with pickaxes and rope attached to our belts. Swinging across like in tomb raider we jump to a cliff to get around the dead end. We find a hut and a snowmobile sitting beside it. Me and Digi get on and the man gets on the skies attached to the snowmobile. He yells with joy and laughter as we shred the mountain. Digi yells look out! A rumble starts to make our snowmobile swerve and the man behind yells avalanche! We try to outmaneuver it, but we get buried.
I wake up frantically and look for Digi. I can't find him and I'm alone and scared. (The static electricity around him turns blue) After hours of searching, I break down and cry. I look into my backpack at the scrapbook that I was putting together and look at the Gears Town people, Digi, and other moments. I say to myself, I'm sorry, I couldn't make it. I fell asleep in the nap sack I packed in my backpack. I wake up to laughter and a light. I follow the light guided by the aura borealis. The laughter and sounds get louder and louder. I see a campfire and logs beside it with glowing marshmallows over it. (Marshmallows are light particles that look like it) It's a cute little black and white cat with spots. I'll call you Muca. I thought I heard Digi though. You did, said Digi behind me. I turn around with a smile and hug him. I thought you were a goner. The crazy man jumped from under the snow papers under me and said, same here sparky. I was so glad to see them. What do we do now I asked? Both of them said they didn't know. Muca looked at me and pointed with her nose in a direction with a funny noise showing us that she wanted us to follow her. We follow Muca to a weird glowing hole in the ground near the top of the mountain. Muca points down and smiles. Thank you little one. Muca jumps into my backpack, and we slide through the hole in the ground. We fell down onto a train. We see signs everywhere on the sides pointing to Britain. Yes! We are on the way finally.
Passing the blue ring tube, we hit a mega slide and are launched into the air. We land in the digital tube and make our way inside the directory, the telephone booth. We run across the index and look up electricity city to find the creator of electricity. He is somewhere in the district called clock Mod City. Digi points to the only clock in sight. It's a giant Clock tower. That must be it, Frizzy replied. We jump on the telephone buttons dialing the location in and get sucked into the phone. It takes us to the underground ancient sewers of London where we see another civilization and then we shoot to the top of the tower. There we see clocks everywhere and a long hallway with cool artifacts. We knock on the big door to see the inventor of electricity. No answer. We walk inside and see a robot man made of clock parts. He tells us the inventor hasn't been seen for years. We came all this way to help fix my town, we told the man. He said the inventor told the robotic man that he was expecting Frizzy would come and to tell him that he was the key to the future. The robotic man gave him a book showing him everything the inventor worked on and everything that the future would hold. He saw battery designs, cool looking windmills and a device that would generate lightning to use as power. The clock man/robotic man was the future see-er and told Frizzy that he was going to do things that the world has never seen before. The clock man then said there's no time to waste and opened the roof of the clock tower which had a giant satellite, it sucked them into it. The clock man said you are the key Frizzy, while he threw them an artifact, saying you'll know what to do with it when the time comes, it's what you have always done. They turned into particles and beamed into outer space where they saw little space guys as they were beaming to the satellite in the sky. They saw the past and future as they were getting beamed up. (Past and future for Digi and frizzy so digital stuff and electrical inventions). They made it to the satellite where they saw another civilization of creatures who had a city there on the satellite. They were then re-directed by the satellite through a toll way with a really lazy person who let people into the major highway. They made it past the tollway and to Gears town after they told the person where they needed to go after they paid the tollway. Beamed back down to gears town. They ran away from the surges and Frizzy looked at the artifact and saw a Wi-Fi symbol on it. Frizzy looked to the sky and it clicked. The radio tower Frizzy exclaimed! They raced up to the tower in the Nic of time before their whole town was destroyed. Digi held them off and Frizzy inserted the artifact into the radio tower which sent out shock waves fixing everything. The Surges disappeared, the towns turned vibrant again and the power plant turned back on. (The power plant was slowly fading off). They go back to the town center in Gears town and Frizzy is congratulated along with Digi. Everyone is so curious about Digi because they have never seen a creature like that. They were both given the keys to the city in a ceremony and Frizzy was given the Lightning bolt which could open the Power plant. The mayor of Gears town told Frizzy he earned it. Make us proud, he told Frizzy and Digi. They went to the power plant and saw that in the control center it was the inventor of the electricity with pictures of him everywhere and his knickknacks on the table with a note that said, Reach for the stars Frizzy.
Digi and Frizzy worked together on so many projects there. Created so many inventions. Frizzy came up with something called the fusion reactor which made an artificial sun on earth that could generate endless electricity for everyone. They invented wireless electrical poles. Everyone from Gears town mixed in with the people from the big cities to a new place called Atlas where they all lived together. This was A mega substation city. Frizzy invited Digi and everyone they met on their way to London to a big party. They lived in peace and had a blast together. End of story. (Show funny and cool stuff after.) (Fill in parts later if other characters join in power plant for different ending)
*Reference nuclear fusion as the future which Frizzy creates in the end.
*Solar panels in the desert and wind turbines background.
*In some places water turbines are used as scenery.
*Joule people babies from megawatt people.
*The Internet cables different people and connects the world together. spider internet creatures furry
*Human connection because he watches him watch tv while he is powering the tv. Watch behind the tv screen.
*When they go under water it drops off into ocean and the cable is see through with lights coming from it and stuff projected under the deep blue sea
*In the end frizzy gets promoted into the power plant to use his new ideas. Nobody would listen to him in the Giga city, and they all watched as he got promoted.
*In the Giga city hall in front of everyone after he saved the day and fixed everything. Frizzy even made new friends along the way from different places and they were also invited to the power plant factory to aid him in inventing the future.
*He received the giant lightning bolt key that could open anything.
*Anger or sadness can change the electrical current flowing on the outside of the creatures from green-excited, blue-sad, red-angry.
*Creatures are fuzzy, big eyes.
*Characters of different natures have chromatic Chroma flair coloring.
*Muca has white is pearl with sparkles
*Traffic is above and below. City inside the tunnel underground.
A giant storm causes the power plant to malfunction and causes a blackout and surge (bad guys) to invade and take over the creatures' cities and towns. The main character has to work with the other villages to travel across the world by internet to uncover how to fix their hometowns. Under water lines where he travels and across the skies by Wi-Fi and older communities where he gets stuck in Ireland with the ash community and needs to find a way to England where it all began with a reference to the creator of the internet. Picturing America as the cowboy west in Nevada (his hometown) and the big cities of New York. He also ends up in Japan. The creature looks like that country. All furry creature balls but different face features and outfits.

2023.02.03 05:37 gunnsrevenge BB 2.7 ltr Blown front axle, horrible ford service & great ford service
The incident: I dropped my ‘22 Big Bend ( 6k miles) into 4Low after I parked in some winter crud at our local ski area. Typical crusty snow and gravel- not off road or ditch driving! As soon as I started to add power I heard the sound of breaking metal coming from the front DS wheel well. At that point I disengaged, and had someone pull me onto the black top portion of the lot where I then tried to move in 2 high. More gnashing of gears and the front DS wheel locked.
Bad dealer: Called road service and had them drop it at the dealership where I purchased it from which was not my local dealership. I think that it’s reasonable to do that because I would assume that the salesperson has a vested interest in their customer’s service experience. Nope. The service department told me that because I was stuck and used 4 low that I basically negated my warranty. And no loaner to boot. Huh? So I contacted my salesperson. He told me that he has no say in the matter.
Good dealer: I had another flatbed there in 15 minutes ( Ford road service covered that as well) and prearranged drop off at my local dealership who had an F150 loaner warming up for me and, unprompted ( I did not discuss my previous experience ), said that this will DEFINITELY be a warranty claim. They added an apology that it will take a couple days for them to actually get into the axle.
The axle: when I was contacted via text with an update I was told that the differential was broken and they ordered 28 parts for the axle assembly. Me: does the tech know why or what happened? Service: no, but when the tech started taking it apart a gear just fell out [of the differential]. Me: … I assume that that is NOT supposed to happen. Service: lol. No. That is definitely not supposed to happen! Lol.
It’s a new model and things happen. Doesn’t change my positive feeling about the vehicle- it’s probably the favorite of the vehicles that I’ve owned. It’s covered under warranty and Hopefully it’s a secluded issue.
I’ll post any pix of the damage if I get some.

2023.02.03 05:37 bistroboybieds OG Player returning to Tamriel
Howdy folks, I played a lot of eso when it first came out and then very sporadically throughout the years. Looking to make my return to Tamriel and I am going to start a new character since I don’t remember a thing that I was doing from before.
My question is, I understand that quests are no longer level-capped so does this mean that it is meaningless to grind for levels? I used to spend hours just running around and fighting enemies, but now would my time be better spent questing?
Edit: Also, I left my ESO plus subscription running for like a year and have accrued 26,000 crowns… what should I spend those on lol

2023.02.03 05:37 --Ace-of-Spades-- Wondering if anyone else has seen the Game Theory about Ellie being “immune”?
POSSIBLE SPOILERS WARNING
I just finished watching the Game Theory’s video discussing Ellie and how shes “immune” to codyceps. I thought it was really interesting and had a point I wanted to bring up in regards to this video because he didn’t discuss it himself.
Those who watched the video, the next 2 paragraphs are a summary for those who haven’t watched but are still interested.
For anyone who hasn’t watched the video, he came to the conclusion that she is not immune, but simply infected with a different type of cordyceps which, rather than turning you into an infected, it worsens the state of your immune system. At the same time though, it’s a medicine used in real life to medically treat issues in our bodies with fungi, by killing the fungi. He elaborates on how this keeps Ellie from becoming infected. It’s a result of this specific cordyceps strand killing off other fungi, including the one making everyone into “zombies.”
He found this from the one of the lab scenes where it shows one of Ellie’s medical records taken by the doctor which shows levels of different parts of your body involved with the immune system, and was able to formulate the idea from that and game dialogue.
What I wanted to point out is how the survivors could utilize this specific strand of cordyceps to render themselves immune, and possibly heal any recently infected. If the survivors were to use the strand which kills off other fungi, they could infect themselves with it and become immune. A similar thing could be done for those recently turned by the fungus, as it has probably not harmed the body to the point of no return after maybe a week or so.
The real problem is the characters in game coming to this same conclusion as the game theorist, and then getting their hands on enough to save everyone. If a part 3 is made it really would be interesting if this was covered and cool to see his theory confirmed. It really makes a lot of sense tbh

2023.02.03 05:31 9inkski3s Facebook keeps marking comments in a specific group as spam
I belong to many groups, but this is happening on 1 specific group. I have been part of it for a few months but rarely participate (just read posts etc). Some weeks ago, the admin tagged everyone in the morning, I didn't see the tag, then at night she tagged everyone again, and I also didn't see the tag, but eventually see the post in my feed. I replied to the admin letting her know the everyone tag seemed to be not working because I didn't got notifications both times (I generally don't care but this time it was something I wanted to participate in and missed the chance because I was not notified). I only said the first part, I didn't mention anything else about missing the earlier video because of the tag. I just made that 1 comment, nothing else at all on the post or any other posts. Seconds later it was marked as spam, I clicked "disagree with decision" and moved on, no big deal.
After that, I have not commented on that group again, until today. The admin posts something about a course she is offering. I commented once asking if that course will cover a specific topic, because it generally does not and that's the topic that interests me right now. A few seconds later, I get another notification that my comment was spam.
The weird part is that their explanation of spam provided on the notification says things that I am absolutely not doing (posting multiple comments in a short amount of time, posting information irrelevant to the group, etc). It does not happen in any other group at all (I am way more active in others). Has anyone had this happen? Is this something that the admins are manually marking as spam? I asked the admin on inbox but so far no response. The message makes it seem like it was auto-flagged by Facebook. Any input is appreciated.

2023.02.03 05:28 isanewone HELP! Do I have any legal obligation here?
Okay, SO.. without getting into too much detail:
A few weeks after I had started my salaried position at a new job, a family member unexpectedly passed away. It was a shocking situation and I had to travel out of state to be there for my family.
My job agreement says nothing about bereavement it just has a catch all of 40 hours of sick/personal/etc.
When I called my employer to let them know, I explained the situation, apologized for the sudden absence and specifically stated that of course this time does not need to be payed, I just need the time to grieve. Their response was "of course, I'm just going to say don't worry about anything we've got you covered." That was all that was communicated as far as pay etc.
I was somewhat surprised to see that they had payed me in full for my time away which was about two weeks. However, during my interview my employer had made statements about how they "give too many bonuses and raises I love my employees too much," so I just assumed that was her decision.
So 4 months later, zero words have been spoken about this, it is a new tax year and my employer emails me and informs me that we need to work out a "payment plan" for the time I took off to grieve.
I stated that I felt blindsided because this was 4 months ago and they had said virtually nothing about this until now. I also will reiterate that I stated that this time did not need to be payed.
Their response was that they wanted to give me time to grieve and then the following months were just so busy.
Some more time passes and nothing formal has been set up and they ask how I want to move forward via text with the payment amount BEFORE TAXES. They also stayed that it was expensive to pay me while I was gone even though no extra staff was hired, that the company doesn't make much and that I actually make more than them... I stated that moving forward, I would like everything written out and documented as far as time taken off, personal time used, taxes payed, hours accrued etc.
They respond "well I thought you could just tell me what you can afford each paycheck." They want to talk about it tomorrow, but I will riterate that I have already payed taxes on this income, it is a new tax year, and I never ever agreed to any sort of "loan" or pay advance?
It all just feels really fishy and I don't feel like this is my responsibility.
If you read this far, THANK YOU. I am feeling frustrated and lied to.
Edit: Forgot to mention that via email they stated they wanted to pay for one week in full and have me "pay back" the rest but now it's all of the time taken off.

2023.02.03 05:27 sparkslyfi fight with mom - how should I go about this
So, I got into an argument with my mom today but I feel so misunderstood. I feel like this is the first time I've been very silent for the first time after an argument. I usually continue talking/yelling but now I feel like it's just done, I've been silent as my mom has been hurling every insult or curse she can.
But at the end of the argument, all my mother does is just curse me and my future and say she hopes she never needs me and is just saying she'll curse me with an early death and no success in life and I said that she's evil.. well I shouldn't have said that, but I feel as though she's saying all these things to hurt me.
The issue stems from the fact that I am the only girl in a 6 sibling- 2 parent household, and I'll be honest I was not helpful with household chores when I was younger because I was always raised to focus on school. This year I am in a gap year and I've been trying to pick up and do better now that I have a baby brother. So I help take care of the baby and clean and with 5 brothers people just create a mess and make things so much more difficult so I get frustrated with it and I can become really demanding when cleaning, and of course, men aren't expected to do anything and that's a cultural thing and I don't mind it but when you're the only girl it's just different, you don't have anyone to lean on to spread the weight. I used to tell my mom I understand what she had to deal with all these years
A relative last year during my last year of uni came and I found out that she was basically backbiting about how I don't do anything and just stay in my room as well as the way I dress when I am at home (I am a fully covered hijabi btw). I found out that she has only come to our home two times a year and the day she came was a farewell to another relative, and I had a thesis presentation due the next day so not only was I in an apartment packed with 20 people but I had a huge evaluation due. So ever since I noticed that relative, make comments about me behind my back, I've just disliked her. Then my mom says that she's right why do you have beef with her, she's calling out what a loser you are. And that just made me so mad because she knows how much uni has been stressful for me.
The thing is, I feel as though I'm always called out when I make mistakes. or don't help with chores for the day. But the interesting thing is my mother had a baby and she also works from 9-3 so I'm the main person changing diapers, changing, feeding, and cleaning. The same baby she hoped would be a girl and stated that she'd raise the girl better than she raised me. Not only that but she goes to part-time school and I help with every assignment and I've always helped with them whenever I can. And I am not saying this because I want any credit or acknowledgement. I am doing this to be better and for the sake of Allah. I'm genuinely trying to change and be a better more helpful person to the family. But it's like whenever I don't do something I'm called out and I'm the type of person where the negative sticks out way more than the positive.
Sometimes I just wish I was a boy that could just stay in their room and do nothing and have no one comment about me honestly, and I would openly express that. I'm just frustrated...

2023.02.03 05:24 Masoth99 Path from Process Engineering to Synthetic Biology
Hello everyone, looking for some advice here. I have a BS in chemical engineering and have been in the biotech/pharma industry for about two years now mostly doing commissioning and process engineering with a little bit of mostly mechanical lab work and some MSAT work. Recently (ish) I started learning about synthetic biology and I think it is just the coolest field out there. Hindsight being 20/20 I wish I had explored more in college and joined something like iGEM, but what's done is done. Now I'm wondering what the best path is for me to try and move into the synthetic biology field. Is upstream PD a good in between role to get some research and cell culture experience? Does process engineering experience count for anything when looking at grad schools and research roles? Do I need to do a masters to get biology experience?
Any advice or just people's experiences related to this would be greatly appreciated. I'm just feeling a little lost and daunted at the concept of a complete career change, but I really do think synthetic biology is something I am/can be very passionate about.
Thanks in advance!
