2023.02.03 05:05 Sammi-Kay Sooo... I need a little advice.

So after like 15 months hrt. Decently passable. Whatever. I think that I'm ready to date right? I want to meet someone in person, in passing, or some occasion. But I'm like before I mess that up Im probably a little rusty so let's try a dating app. Well I am filling out all of this info and it asks what I am looking for and I've always considered myself to be PAN because I don't care I could love anyone right? But I'm swiping up, down, left, and right. I finally meet someone cool and they are AMAB but NB.
They are awesome. Goofy, whimsical, cute, and we have a lot of fun together. I look forward to the time that we spend together. The first time we hung out together was a little weird I guess but they told me then that they are actually in a Poly relationship with another partner and they have their own partner as well and I'm like well I don't have any room to judge anyone so just gonna go with it. Everything goes pretty well.
But I am having a lot of doubts. Mostly about my actual attraction to this person. Like we have fun and laugh like crazy and I dare say I love them. But some interactions, lack of being assertive, and a feminine mannerisms from them just kinda put me off.
So much so that it messes up my head space to where I can't enjoy the sex. We mostly have regular sex where I just do my part as a girl normally would. It's not like they are bad at it at all right but I'm just not into it anymore. I don't know what's wrong or why I am feeling this way but I still find myself getting jealous of the partner they live with. I get excited when men hit on me in public and I feel really bad about it but It makes me more aroused than my partner does.
Did I make a mistake? Am I not Poly? Am I not PAN after all? Should I stay in this relationship?

2023.02.03 04:40 ThriftStoreKobold ...to Boldly Go Where No One Has G-- no not like that!

Back in the 90s, a mutual friend of our DnD group "Brad" suggested running the FASA Star Trek RPG for us at his house. He'd bought the books months earlier and hadn't played yet.
Most of us were fans of ST:TNG, and all of us were (are) nerds, so we agreed. As a longtime DM, I suggested a session zero where we decided the era we'd play (TNG,) create PCs, and figure out what kind of campaign we should play.
The concept we pitched to Brad at session zero was to have a prototype reconnaissance ship with a cloaking device that could explore new worlds without starting wars or violating the Prime Directive.
GM Brad agreed on the condition that the Klingons knew we'd stolen the cloaking tech and were out to take it back - an awesome plot point. We'd also be in the furthest reaches of Federation space so Brad could feel free to throw anything at us and homebrew a campaign.
For a first time GM, Brad was pretty good. He wrote a couple great adventures and managed our shenanigans for a few months of the campaign. There were several great storylines going, and I enjoyed the change up from being a forever DM. We'd even encountered Q (a godlike cosmic being,) which was a fun connection to the show. One adventure, though, we managed to evade the Klingons with quick thinking and cloaking: our party's Chief of Engineering managed to kill the engines and redirect power to life support and cloaking, meaning no "exhaust" would be present to locate our ship (hell yeah, ST VI: Undiscovered Country...)
For some reason, Brad seemed pissed at this outcome. Best guess is he wanted to run a ship-to-ship combat. He never said. For our part, the recon bird would've been absolutely wrecked by a Klingon Bird of Prey. So we hid. Brave? Nah. But smart. The adventure ended with us avoiding the BBEG through suspense rather than action. It was an awesome session.
The next session? Not so much. Brad kicked off by announcing that the Federation was canceling our prototype project and we would need to return our bird to federation space. The USS Archangel would be decommissioned. The party was floored. We got over the initial shock, then the Captain (me) did his best Kirk impression and gave the crew a Motivational and Inspiring speech that boiled down to: "We've risked everything and proven the value of the Archangel and her crew. Any who wish to return to Federation space and get reassigned: shuttlecrafts are ready. But we're not going back. To hell with the Federation. We stay and finish what we've started."
The crew were all in. Brad, however, was visibly pissed. "You'd be hunted down. You can't be pirates!" The party were all for going rogue, in game and at the table. Brad takes a deep breath, and the next thing we know, the Borg show up and catch us in the open. We weren't fast enough to run, and we definitely weren't strong enough to fight. For every plan we pitched, Brad had a reason it couldn't work. "Well, what are our options?" "You could call on Q," Brad said. We debated, since Q is basically a trickster god. Finally we decided it was the only option.
Q arrives and somehow launches our warp core at the Borg ship, destroying it in a fantastic explosion. But it also stranded our ship in deep space with only impulse engines. Brad told us without the warp engines, we would be months from the nearest station that could repair our ship. And without the warp core, we wouldn't have enough power to use the cloaking device, either. We tried to bargain with Q to no avail. We were sitting ducks. The session ended with the party completely deflated and Brad grinning smugly at how well he'd railroaded his players and ended the campaign he'd done so well at building. Dude chose to burn it all down than let his players do something different.
(We never played RPGs with Brad again, but the rest of us are still in a weekly DnD group 30 years later, so there's at least a happy ending.)

2023.02.03 04:40 3S3B 1 month on aripiprazole. Holy shit.

Hello! my psychiatrist just put me on aripiprazole one month ago, ans BOY i feel really different. I've been taking 25mg of quetiapine since 2017, and now i take 15 mg of abilify along that. I feel really anxious and surprisingly, full of energy. However, i also feel really tired and my bursts of energy last very little. although i feel sleepy most of the time, I'm unable to stay still or in the same position a long time. I also feel more impulsive than ever (money ans socially wise). I can read for the first time in years and concentrate for a longer period of time, which is awesome.
However, i feel a little unhinged (?) idk, i feel i need to run, to jump, scream or something. I feel restless and it worries me. Also, I've been experiencing blurry or shaky vision for shorts periods of time and spasms as well. i wanted to ask, is this normal? is it temporary?
honestly, I'm glad i found this sub, it makes me feel less alone since none of my friends take the same medicines as me.

2023.02.03 04:37 Cupinacup Yeah, Dr. White! Yeah science! A professor of engineering at Purdue is arrested for possession of meth, students at /r/Purdue react.

Right off the bat, this isn't slapfight drama, but it's a dramatic happening in a subreddit and it made me laugh, so here it is.
It all starts when one student posts to /Purdue asking where their engineering professor was: "[He] didn't show up to teach AAE 334 or his office hours (I believe) today. No absences were announced in class or via the syllabus or email. I emailed the TAs. They have no idea why he didn't show up and are trying to reach him but cannot. Does anyone know if he is okay? "
Which elicits the response, "Long time reader. First time poster. This might have something to do with it. Hard to show up to teach when incarcerated at the local jail. [booking info]". The rest of the thread has some funny posts too.
After this revelation, the professor is placed on leave. One student is upset that the school isn't standing up for "one of their most legendary professors".
The sub also has been having fun posting (generally Breaking Bad) memes at the professor's expense:
"Hollup... Let him cook"
"You, and your endothermic reactions and your ego"
"Photo I took today (real)"
"The Super Sub back at it again!" (I don't get this one, it's an F1 meme).
Also found this thread from about a month ago advising students to take this prof's class and this other thread from two years ago complaining about the prof being a jerk on Piazza

2023.02.03 04:30 Sellinzs 27 [M4F] Orlando/NA - Looking for a meaningful connection

Hi there, my name is Reed I'm 27 years old from just outside Orlando FL, I am at a point in my life where I yearn for a connection, someone I can genuinely enjoy talking to, someone that pushes me to be the best version of me that I can be and being able to be that person for them as well.
I work a full time job that I'm not particularly passionate about but have a side hustle writing that I really enjoy and am working towards making my full time thing; I love to hear about peoples passions be it professional or hobbies. I do a lot of random things for fun, mostly play video games so it'd be awesome if you gamed too (I'm on PC) but I'm happy to talk to anyone, other than gaming I stay fit (about 40 miles a month) enjoy thrifting, eating good food and really any kind of adventure with friends, I am definitely more of an introvert/home body who loves twitch/youtube but I am almost always down to get out and explore with those close to me. I love to laugh and would love to find someone who can be just as goofy as me.
I'm a fairly liberal guy but my general philosophy on life is 'Do whatever you want as long as you aren't actively harming others' I don't drink or smoke but cool if you do in moderation/responsibly. I'd love to hear your perspective on life and how you got to that point. Really more than anything I want someone I can be myself around and someone that likes me for me, someone I can help achieve their goals and vice versa but at the same time someone I can do absolutely nothing with and love every second of it. I want a meaningful connection with someone that needs their someone.
I hope this stands out to you.

2023.02.03 04:21 Independent_Click383 Bedtime routine for twins?

Hello! My husband and I are currently in the process of trying to establish good sleep habits for our twins (15 weeks actual, 11 adjusted) and, to be completely honest it’s not really going well. We are super inconsistent, and I was wondering if any of you had some great tried and true bedtime routines that did not involve a bath every night. My little ones hate the bath with a passion that I can’t for the life of me figure out why. So bath for us is very stressful and involves a lot of crying (Only most of it from them), but it’s definitely not relaxing for anyone involved. So right now our routing is some version of feed, burp/digest in bunch chairs, put pjs on and change diaper, and if they are not too over tired from not napping (that’s a whole other post in ours own right, who to stop contact making when you can’t Sherry train yet) we will read a book and then I rich them and sit with them until they go to sleep. But that thing isn’t always the same and what we do doesn’t always stay the same from day to day. So, can I hear your awesome bed routines?

(and he's got links! Not to the important stuff, but still)
Do tell - what is the important stuff? You're free to link to them if they're so important. In fact, you're encouraged to do so.
The issue has been known of for some time and written about far past 2005 - to current day, actually.
Chief of the SEC, Gary Gensler, recently said,
"When you place a market order - 90-95% do not go to the 'lit' exchanges - do not go to NASDAQ or NYSE, they go to wholesalers and they don't have order by order competition and part of that is because of what you just said; Payment-for-Order-Flow which is, yes, banned in the U.K., in Canada, and Australia and the European Union..."source
On a different, but related note...
Why Private Equity Firms Like Bain Really Are the Worst of Capitalism
And that’s when the fun starts. Once the buyout is completed, the private equity guys start swinging the meat axe, aggressively cutting costs wherever they can – so that the company can start paying off its new debt – by laying off workers and cutting capital costs. This process often boosts operating profit without a significant hit to the business, but only in the short term; in the long run, the austerity approach makes it difficult for companies to stay competitive, not least because money that would otherwise have been invested in expansion or product development – which might increase revenue down the line – is used to pay off the company’s debt.
It takes several years before the impacts of this predatory activity – reduced customer service, inferior products – become fully apparent, but by that time the private equity firm has generally resold the business at a profit and moved on.
You say...
But you won't be able to, because not only is this not a "serious fucking problem" it's actually not a problem at all.
That's patently, absurdly untrue and a bogus fucking lie, if not utter ignorance of the issue.
I see from your comment history that you're a lawyer.
And you post in the conservative subreddit fairly regularly.
Your credibility is low (in my opinion).
For more on the specifics of some of the bullshit happening we can read Cellar Boxing — The Predatory Secret That Wall Street Uses to Exploit an Infinite Money Glitch in the Stock Market This a light-hearted explanation of a ruthless tactic used by hedge funds and market makers to naked short companies to the ground and profit endlessly
Hu & Black's work on this subject make it clear that this is an on-going issue.
Empty Voting and Hidden (Morphable) Ownership: Taxonomy, Implications, and Reforms
The derivatives revolution and other capital market developments threaten this familiar pattern. Both outside investors and insiders can now readily decouple economic ownership of shares from voting rights to those shares. This decoupling - which we call the new vote buying - is often hidden from public view and is largely untouched by current regulation.
Do you really think this decoupling is made obvious by those able to buy the votes?
Here is one more quote related to the discussion:
The President of the NYSE, Stacey Cunningham, recently said,
"...stocks that have a high level of retail participation, the vast majority of order flow can trade off of exchanges, which is problematic," said Stacey Cunningham, president of Intercontinental Exchange Inc's (ICE.N) NYSE.
"That price formation is not really reflective of what supply and demand is," she said at a conference hosted by CNBC."source
In case anyone missed it, she said, "That price formation is not really reflective of what supply and demand is..." Go "frEe MaRkEt!"
Again, you're free to post some linked, sourced rebuttals at any time. You know, the "important" stuff.
To end: it should be noted that FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) and the NYSE are Self-Regulatory Organizations (SROs) - "We investigated ourselves and found no wrongdoing!"
More importantly, though, the DTCC/Cede & Co. is also an SRO (Self Regulatory Organization; see above sentence) and it is impossible (for "regular people" - for non-executives of the DTCC) to tell the extent to which FTDs and phantom/counterfeit shares (which are used in overvoting and debasing the very foundation of democracy and corporate voting) are laced throughout the system because they do not provide that information.
This wouldn't be a problem if they just came clean - which can be done in a safe and privacy-oriented way by publishing related raw numbers that can then be cross-referenced with public information and data. Unfortunately, I very seriously doubt they'll do that, because they've been covering up fraud, manipulation, crime, and utter nonsense - and the resultant suffering and pain of billions of people across the world - for so long they are morally fucking bankrupt, hypocritical cowards.

2023.02.03 03:27 I_willbeatthis Before the escape (Part 1)

I've wanted to share my story for the longest time now, just wanting to literally get off my chest. Today I start that journey.
I certainly never expected the twists and turns that would come to be 35 years of my life. I remember being a young girl looking out the window on yet another drive home from the kingdom hall wishing I could be anywhere else but in that car with my family. I remember being a teenager just praying someone would love me enough to get me away from the hell of my parents and the religion. Not once in the course of my childhood did I ever think that I would be the one who would have to save myself. That I would be the one to change everything and be the person I always needed. But let's not get too far ahead here let me explain where and what I came from and then we can get into my grand escape from it all.
I was born into a Jehovah Witness family in the late 80's. I was third generation on my moms side, and fourth generation on my dad's side. Being born a female in the JW's you were only good for one thing and that was obeying your father until you were old enough to obey your husband. So began my life of being told I was never good enough for anything else. My father, a man who was completely broken and unloved himself always seemed to take joy in making sure I remembered he decided everything I would do. Shaping who I would be, how I would act, what men were allowed to talk to me. He loved to remind me I was never quite as good as the boys my age in the Kingdom Hall. Why can't you be more like a boy so and so. I still struggle with the man that my father is but that will have to be another story for another day. My mother, though broken herself, tried a lot harder than my father. She struggled with her own mental health issues but at least she tried to love and support me. My father always found a way to remind her that he was in charge and so she never really allowed herself a true connection with me all my childhood and teenage life.
I remember the first time that I ever questioned the JW's(Jehovah Witness) beliefs and it was when I was five years old, in kindergarten. In those days we still read the bible stories in the classroom. I wasn't allowed to sit and listen to the stories, so the teacher would ask me to go and play by myself in another room. I remember one day I told the teacher I just wanted to sit with my friends and I wouldn't listen, I just wanted to sit. She let me stay. I remember listening to the story that day, and though I can't remember the exact story I remember thinking this is the exact story that my mom and dad tell me at home. Why do JW’s separate themselves from people who are talking about the same stories we tell? I wondered why I wasn't allowed to stay. I never mentioned what I did to my mom and dad, even in that moment I knew that if I did I would be in trouble. I don't remember if I ever stayed for any more stories, I just remember that one day.
Another big moment I had was when I found out that my mom's sister, my aunt, had dated and married a man who became a JW for her. From that moment I knew that I would never want to marry one of the JW men and that I would want to find someone I could bring in. That's what I told myself anyway. I now realize I was just looking for someone to love me enough to get me out. Someone I could use to escape because I felt I had no other choice. I am lucky enough to say I found that man at the age of 19 and he has stuck by my side ever since, he will come into the story later on.
I never seemed to fit in with any of JW's. Even when I would try my hardest it never seemed to be good enough. There was only one man that kept me in for as long as I stayed and that man was my grandfather. He was the most beautiful man you have ever met. He had a disease that kept him housebound and my grandmother was his full time caregiver. My grandma and grandpa were the people who showed me true love in this world and showed me the kind of love I truly deserved. He never had an unkind word, he was just a man of pure love. My grandfather also plays a major role in my escape but we just aren't there yet.
Things started to change for me pretty quickly once I hit highschool. I saw the world through a completely different lense. I met a boy(let's call him Joe) in highschool who changed alot for me. Joe was my first love and I feel I mentally mistreated that boy. If I ever saw him again I would apologize and give him the biggest hug. Joe showed me love, he showed me how to start loving bits of myself. Showed me things that were pretty awesome that I had never been told before. He used to sing to me in our classes together, and my goodness that boy could sing. We would spend all night secretly talking on MSN messenger until my dad got home and needed the computer. I would sneak out of the house to go and meet him across the street at the park just to steal a couple kisses. Friday nights were always the easiest to sneak out because my family would have a movie night in the basement. So I would say I was going up to my room and then sneak out the back door. I would leave the back door open a crack that way if it was closed I would know someone was upstairs and I'd have time to craft a story. One night I came back with the front and back door locked. I got so lucky that night and had a great story that no one questioned. As the end of highschool started to draw to a close I really wasn't sure how I would keep a relationship with Joe not being able to see him everyday at school. About half way through grade 12 I ended things with him and broke my own heart. Joe told me once we officially ended it that he hoped I never did what I did to him to anyone else. I've never forgotten those words.
Though I ended things with Joe he started me down a path that I could see my freedom. I saw that I could lie and hide things from my parents to be and do what I wanted. I tasted freedom and I loved it, I wanted more of it.
Then one day things all started to change. My grandfather started to decline rapidly in his health, we knew the end was coming soon. I had not been baptized yet and decided as a gift to my grandfather I would do what would make him the most happy before he died. And so I began my process to get baptized at 17. I was baptized in December and my grandfather passed the very next month in January. And so the one man who kept me tied to being the good little Jehovah Witness girl was gone. So began my struggle with finding my path to myself or finding the path to what my parents wanted me to be.
So begins the crazy stories that have become my life. If you've stuck around for all of this so far, buckle up because it's about to get bumpy.

Update: Long time lurker
I wanted to thank everyone for the comments and insight from my post a few days ago. I’ve taken things really slow and focused on mechanics both in the garage and in the field. All the information and videos posted was very helpful.
I’ve thrown hundreds of shots into the practice net at lunch and spent about an hour around dusk every night in the field. This is taken from one of my best throws where I was able to keep my body/feet mostly perpendicular to the target, shorten my cross step, and generate a a throw I was happy with.
It’s hard to see from this video but I still have an issue with the plant step, ensuring that I’m not straddling and my feet are staying in their respective linear lanes so I can generate good power from my hips. Also my arm doesn’t reach full extension and my left shouldehand could definitely use some work.
This post is meant to be a community appreciate post because veryone here is awesome. I would have never had the push to look deeper and break things down if it weren’t for you guys!

2023.02.03 03:12 I_willbeatthis [Real] (02/02/2023) Before the escape (Part 1)

I certainly never expected the twists and turns that would come to be 35 years of my life. I remember being a young girl looking out the window on yet another drive home from the kingdom hall wishing I could be anywhere else but in that car with my family. I remember being a teenager just praying someone would love me enough to get me away from the hell of my parents and the religion. Not once in the course of my childhood did I ever think that I would be the one who would have to save myself. That I would be the one to change everything and be the person I always needed. But lets not get to far ahead here let me explain where and what I came from and then we can get into my grand escape from it all.
I was born into a Jehovah Witness family in the late 80's. I was third generation on my moms side, and fourth generation on my dad's side. Being born a female in the JW's you were only good for one thing and that was obeying your father until you were old enough to obey your husband. So began my life of being told I was never good enough for anything else. My father a man who was completely broken and unloved himself always seemed to take joy in making sure I remembered he decided everything I would do. Shaping who I would be, how I would act, what men were allowed to talk to me. He loved to remind me I was never quite as good as the boys my age in the Kingdom Hall. Why can't you be more like boy so and so. I still struggle with the man that my father is but that will have to be another story for another day. My mother though broken herself tried alot harder than my father. She struggled with her own mental health issues but at least she tried to love and support me. My father always found a way to remind her that he was in charge and so she never really allowed herself a true connection with me all my childhood and teenage life.
I remember the first time that I ever questioned the JW's(Jehovah Witness) beliefs and it was when I was five years old, in kindergarten.

I remember one day I told the teacher I just wanted to sit with my friends and I wouldn't listen, I just wanted to sit. She let me stay. I remember listening to the story that day, and though I can't remember the exact story I remember thinking this is the exact story that my mom and dad tell me at home. Why as JW's do we seperate ourselves from people who are talking about the same stories we tell. I wondered why I wasn't allowed to stay. I never mentioned what I did to my mom and dad, even in that moment I knew that if I did I would be in trouble. I dont remember if I ever stayed for anymore stories, I just remember that one day.
Another big moment I had was when I found out that my mom's sister, my aunt, had dated and married a man who became a JW for her. From that moment I knew that I would never want to marry one of the JW men and that I would want to find someone I could bring in. Thats what I told myself anyway. I now realize I was just looking for someone to love me enought to get me out. Someone I could use to escape because I felt I had no other choice. I am lucky enough to say I found that man at the age of 19 and he has stuck by my side ever since, he will come into the story later on.
I never seemed to fit in with any of JW's. Even when I would try my hardest it never seemed to be good enough.

2023.02.03 02:54 brandowun Razer nari ultimate vs Razer kraken v3 pro

Just want to make sure people in the future with this question sees this. I have owned razer nari ultimate for over 4 years. And today it finally gave its last sound wave. The cause of failure (stopped charging). Besides that I enjoyed the nari, I have a tiny head and it slipped off a lot so if you have a smaller head be warned if you lean over it will slide off. It was very comfortable and it was an awesome headset.
But I’m honestly glad it gave out. This new headset by far none is worth the extra 80$ for the kraken pro v3 (200$ nari is priced at 120$ in early 2023). For one it stays on my tiny head. It’s locked on there like a saw bear trap. It’s super lightweight a lot lighter feel. Has more options on razer synapses and it makes it far more clear on the changes you make. I can take off the mic. It’s usb C charging. It’s lighting is a ton better. The audio is far better from the few hours I have used it.
Hope this helps anyone squash this question on which one to buy. If your budget only allows the 120$ nari my advice would save 1 to 2 more weeks and try and get the kraken v3 pro. It’s that much better and if your going to be stuck with it for years. That small amount of money outweighs the extra money.

2023.02.03 02:41 Unqualifiedvoter How do you process all of this stuff?

Here's my story in a nutshell:
I followed the "covenant path" by the book. Seminary, mission, BYU, married young, kids rights away, and a good number of them, law school at BYU. I read my scriptures everyday. Fresh out of law school I was making decent money in an awesome starter home. I was in the EQP and then WML. Our missionary efforts had been going well and we were the example for the stake. I went to the temple monthly with my wife (I've never liked the temple but I went and tried to have a good attitude). I paid full tithing. I felt great and attributed it to living the gospel plan.
The only thing I had on my shelf was Joseph Smith using a rock in a hat. But I had brushed it aside.
I was feeling on top of the world. I honestly thought that if I could just share powerful testimony with others, the spirit would speak to their hearts and I would be able to bring people to the joy of the gospel--the same joy that I was experiencing.
Since I was an attorney and apparently a great WML, I thought I should double down on learning as much as I could about the Church so I could really become a gospel scholar and advocate for the church. I wasn't concerned about encountering ex-mormon lies because I knew, as J. Rueben Clark said, "If we have truth, it cannot be harmed by investigation." Plus, my testimony was rock solid and I was doing all the things to keep it that way.
I actually thought that I could go into ex-mormon forums and by utilizing my sincere testimony backed by a thorough grasp of the issues, I could bring them back into the fold. It would be like the miracle stories you read in the Book of Mormon. I felt so good about it. I also felt like it was something that I was destined to do based on some language in my patriarchal blessing.
One of my ideas that I was excited about related to the Pearl of Great Price, Facsimile 2. Why? Because a footnote says "If the world can find out these numbers, so let it be." I thought if someone hadn't figured it out yet, maybe I could and it would probably be amazing.
I started by googling about the Book of Abraham. And I'm sure you can put together what happened after that.
The more I tried to study, the more I found that the most likely answer, based on all reasonable inferences, was that it's fake. All of it.
Ultimately, my view is that I'm 99.9% confident that the Church is just like any other religion out there. It's just a bunch of made up beliefs. I think the most likely reality is that when we die, that's it. And truthfully, I feel good about that. I would even say I had a spiritual experience about it.
But there's just that 0.1% of me that says, "okay, we don't know everything and maybe God set it up this way to trick all of us and that's why the way is so narrow. Plus, the scriptures say lean not unto your own understanding." But that 0.1% of my logical brain takes up about 90% of my emotions. It's weird.
It's now been 10 years since I went down this path with about 7 of those just being absolutely stuck in a quagmire. I don't know what to do.
I don't even know what I want to do.
I don't mind doing church stuff. As I said, I've really have liked it. I also don't have a problem being a part of an organization that isn't 100% true or totally moral. I'm a member of the bar after all. Plus, I don't think I could join any group that is 100% true and moral. It just doesn't exist.
I also know all the M**rmon jokes that only M**rmons get and I don't want to let the jokes go to waste.
So I like the group I'm in, even though I don't agree with some of the view and I think it's all made up.
I guess the main problems I have are:
(1) Home life. My wife has doubled down and we can't seem to talk about things without getting into fights. Even though I'm an attorney, I'm a non-confrontational person. I love her a lot and things are great as long as I don't say what I think in relation to Church topics. So I mostly stay quiet.
(2) Kids. I also don't like to teach my kids things that aren't correct. For instance, my wife read the part in the BOM about how we are all less than the dust of the earth and explained how we are all sinners and of no worth if it weren't for Jesus. I saw the look on my daughter's face and had to chime in. I explained that my view was that Nephi was just trying to express how grateful he was for Jesus and used that example. I said he admits that he is bad at writing and that my view was that this was bad writing with good intent--he was just trying to say that God can make up for where we may fall short. I have to do things like that all the time because just blasting the doctrines can lead to shame and inadequacy. Scripture time is like walking the edge of a knife blade.
(3) I don't feel like I can openly talk about my actual thoughts. I recently made some changes in my life due to a mid-life crisis, largely because of all of this church stuff. One of my goals is to not overthink things and just to do things I want to do (or not do things I don't want to do). I made a personal blog to document some of the stuff I was doing but then I mostly just ended up writing mostly draft posts about church stuff (I'm not sharing what that blog is here). It has been nice to sort through my thoughts more carefully, but some people found my blog and I'm just not ready to share those thoughts with them. I'd rather share with strangers, if that makes sense.
(4) I think my last problem is that I mostly feel like my brain is fried. I don't even know where to go from where I am now or even where I want to go.
So anyway, there you have it. That's where I'm at and a little bit of my story.
I have no idea why I'm posting this or what I'm hoping someone will say. As I said, I'm trying to do things I want to do without overthinking. So since I wanted to make this post, I'm just doing it.
If you have any thoughts or suggestions, I'm open to them.
Thank you for listening/reading.

2023.02.03 02:39 Better-Swimmer8162 Employment Ableism is Sooo Awesome

Sorry, rant alert: You know what is super refreshing? Having to deal with constant ableism in the workplace /s. Not only does my employer not provide appropriate accommodations, they are now requiring that I am on call for 24 hour periods of time to cover my able bodied colleagues if they get the sniffles. This is above and beyond my contracted number of shifts. When they asked me and an able bodied colleague to cover another colleagues shift on 2 back to back days… my colleague told them she could cover 4 hrs. Their response “ great thanks so much”. I replied those hours would work for me and that I had a doctors appointment after that so I couldn’t stay later. Do I get thanked… no I get scolded and told that I shouldn’t schedule my appointments when they need me for call. Keep in mind I did not agree to this call shift, the shift in question is a “nice to have” shift, not “need to have” shift, that I have medical obligations every day I’m not working because I have multiple serious medical disabilities, that I told them I was very serious about adherence to my agreed upon number of shifts when I accepted the job, and that they picked this day for me after I had already been scheduled for my appointment…. And that they had nothing but praise for my able bodied college who had no reason at all for limiting her available hours… why is the different response for me? Oh and when I told them that I disappointed and confused by the disparity of their replies and viewed this as ableist, one of my supervisors basically said she couldn’t be ableist because she has an autoimmune condition too… awesome… there are some parallels in racism that I can draw but won’t get into that. I’m pretty done y’all… this is not the first time I have dealt with ableism at this organization … so frustrated I have to rely on them for health insurance in our “amazing” American healthcare system. Sorry about the totally not productive rant- Thanks for listening!

2023.02.03 02:18 space-magic-ooo 40 [M4F] Ohio or anywhere! - Today we learn about the blanket octopus!

The blanket octopus is the supervillain of the sea. She doesn’t take any shit and is basically the epitome of a female badass.
The females are about 10,000 times larger than the males who live in her hat skin. When it’s time to make the sweet loving the male blanket octopod will detach his arm (which is where his spermy boys are) and give it to her. She will keep a hold of this until she is ready to make the baby blankets.
Not only do these badass blankets of the sea have a super cool cape and look like Batman as they swoop down on prey but they are immune to jellyfish and have been known to rip off tentacles and whip other creatures with them.
Freaking awesome.
Puppy, dog, cat, and me pictures! - https://imgur.com/a/6b3vb1Y
Hanging out after cooking an amazing dinner and I would love to make a new friend to chat with! Let’s talk!
I’m a pretty cool guy with a pretty cool job and a pretty cool life. I am tall and I like my face. I like science and video games and nature and art and stuff and things.
I used to be a DJ a long time ago, recently got back into music and have been producing my own so if you like Electronic music (house, indie dance, drum and bass) we could definitely talk about music! I am also REAAAAALLLY looking for vocalists so if you like to sing let’s talk and see if our styles compliment each other!
I will totally play video games with you. Or board games, or hide and seek, or follow the leader, or maybe even capture the donut... because donuts are more rewarding than flags.
I will watch movies with you. I will happily share links and pictures and things about science and nature. I will also be happy to talk shit about dumb things in the world.
I will not ask you for feet pictures, talk in creepy asterisks, or show you my dick randomly.
I will also not apologize for being a man, or myself, or act like either of us is less than awesome. We are all awesome and this whole “I’m a piece of shit, talk to me!” culture around here is dumb. Seriously, telling me how you are a loser and the world hates you boo hoo is not sexy, I’m really sorry you feel that way but I know from living that the only way to change it is to stop feeding it. So be happy please.
You -
Reasonably well adjusted in life, knows how to conversate, is ok with being ok.
If you enjoy camping, hiking, being out in nature, fishing, boating, or just staying in and playing video games we probably have something in common, I love being active but I love video games too.
If you send a picture with your message that would be nice!
Really all you need to do is reply in complete sentences and throw a question mark on the end of some of those sentences every once and awhile and you will already be a unicorn in my book.
I’m in Ohio but you can be anywhere.

2023.02.03 02:10 baguette-magique “Friend” plagiarized my work and now I feel like I have to isolate myself from our friends so I don’t end up getting emotional and telling everyone

Apologies in advance this is going to be very long.
I just started grad school last fall and towards the end of the semester I was in a very low place mentally. I find the field I’m in competitive and quite frankly hostile. People are not hesitant to openly compare themselves to each other and would certainly bolster themselves at the expense of others. This has always bothered me, and it seems much more heightened in grad school as authorship and idea ownership have become more contentious between peers.
This type of competitiveness is not in my nature and I refuse to believe that it’s part of human nature to be so callous, cold, and selfish. Maybe naïvely, I crave a sense of community - to be supported and supportive. I’m starting to think I’m not cut out for this type of career path.
I befriended a girl (I’ll call her Amanda - not her real name) over the summer who is in my same program. We took a class together that my PI (major professoboss) was teaching. It was an extremely tough course although the material was interesting and relevant to my research. Amanda seemed to have a lot of imposter syndrome - and in a way I saw a younger version of myself in her. I wanted to help. And so I didn’t mind helping her with most of the assignments, even if I had done the brunt of the struggle before she had even started.
At this point Amanda and I saw each other often and became quite close. We came up with matching Halloween costumes. I threw her a surprise birthday party with a lot of our friends. We’d surprise each other occasionally with tea. I finally felt like I had a real friend in my department. One who would be happy for me for my successes or sad when things weren’t going well - and me to her in return. Neither of us would take each other’s successes as a personal slight. I was finally not alone. Not an island. I had confided all that I was feeling in her and let her know how much I cherished her as a genuine friend.
Towards the end of the semester things had taken a turn for me mentally and I was on the verge of dropping out. The last week of school I had stayed up for 3 days straight working on code that wouldn’t converge for a project worth 40% of my final grade in the class my PI was teaching. Amanda came over to my place a lot so we could work on our individual projects. I cried a lot. Called my parents. Told everyone how miserable I had become. How much I wanted to quit! She was around for that. She was also struggling with her project. It was the only class she was taking so she needed to score a certain grade so her gpa wouldn’t fall below the program’s requirement.
There were two submissions for the project. One for a video where we discuss our project - that was due at the beginning of the week. And another for the report due at the end of the week. The video was originally due on Monday - I couldn’t get my code to converge and so I submitted a video with no results. Tough. I reached out to my PI because I knew a lot of us were dealing with the same issue and asked if he would consider a 24 hour extension. He grants it! The next day, a few hours before the video deadline I get my code to converge. Amanda asks if she can see it. I don’t usually share my work, but with trusted friends I always do. We all do. I send it over. She ends up not getting her video submitted. Tough, because that’s 15% of the 40%. She can still make the grade if she knocks out the report.
The next day I see her in a coffee shop where I work a lot. I’m there working on the report. She tells me she got her code to converge! Awesome. But I have a gut feeling telling me something’s not right. I ask her if she used my code and tell her if she did use any of it to make sure it’s scrambled. She waves me off and tells me not to worry about it. I get the impression that she didn’t use any of it and I feel like a jerk for even suggesting it. I need to learn to be more trusting. A week later I get an email from my PI addressed to me and Amanda. He’s pissed. He sent screenshots of some of our code. They are identical! She didn’t even change the comments!! I doubt she even read it too because I had unsimplified fractions and goofy looking equations because I wrote it in a sleep deprived state - and it was all untouched. Copy, paste. I’m so scared. (Finished in the comments)

When the ref made it over for the count Sid kicked out on two, Sid then retreated to the corner when Sting ran in for a Stinger Splash, Sid caught Sting by the throat and planted him in the center of the ring with a chokeslam. Sting looked finished. Sid then turns his attention to the audience and calls for "Power Bomb'. At that moment The Horsemen hit the ring and attack a prone Sting and the referee calls for the DQ. Sid stands in shock before shouting 'Why?' at his stable mates. Argument ensues between the Horsemen in the ring and a bewildered Sting just rolls out and walks up the ramp. Security hits the ring to stop the situation between the Horsemen from escalating as we go off air.
Leading into WCW Havoc
The Horsemen appear in a promo at 6:05 PM on Saturday Night on TBS. Sid is puzzled about their interference in his match with Sting, when he had the upper hand. Arn Anderson explains that their objective is to bring the WCW World Heavyweight Title back to Ric Flair and Sid is an important asset for wearing down the champion, but only Flair should be the one to take the belt from Sting. Sid fumes, declaring himself as the ruler of the world and the rightful owner of the World Heavyweight Title. Flair acknowledges Sid's talent, calling him a future champion, but states that being a Horseman brings bigger matches and more lucrative contracts. He then appeals to Sid's desire to support his grandparents back in Arkansas. Flair extends his hand, offering to work together towards the common goal of bringing the WCW World Heavyweight Title back to Flair and reminding Sid not to bite the hand that feeds him. The crowd cheers for Sid, but their cheers turn to boos as he shakes Flair's hand and raises the Four Horseman hand gesture. With this gesture, Anderson, Windham, Flair and Vicious stand united, ready to achieve their objective.

2023.02.03 02:00 ignolex Cognitive dissonance

Recession? Party on!
I’ve been watching with fascination the financial markets’ turnaround in the last couple of months. It’s as if participants at one point glanced at each other with a knowing smile and said ‘alright boys and gals, it’s time to get back out there and make some money!’. The animal spirits are back in full force.
Tech is roaring. Tesla at 50+ earnings’ multiple again (the Church of Elon’s Witnesses is back in session). Meta added 25% to its value just today (really? you can try to delay it all you want, but eventually Meta will rightfully find its resting place next to Myspace). And don’t get me started with meme stocks and cryptos (I guess there’s never any shortage of greater ‘regards’, as they like to call themselves).
The cognitive dissonance belies in the fact that all of this is happening for seemingly the wrong reasons. The markets got a whiff of a coming recession, which means that the Fed and other central banks will apparently be forced to cut interest rates, no later than at the end of this year to-be-sure, and despite every central banker’s assurance of the contrary. Recession! Yay! Has anyone noticed how the theme of the last few years has been ‘bad economic news = good news for the markets’? It didn’t use to be like that. It doesn’t feel right.
How is any of this related to housing, you ask? Turns out, very much.
The exuberance is spreading to other areas, including real estate. Pending sales, after dropping almost 40% compared to last year are creeping back up. Mortgage applications are up 25% last week (although down 10% this week). Suddenly houses are again going pending within a week.
To be fair, this is nowhere near the prior year’s craziness level. Early 2022 felt more like a bunch of frantic starry-eyed individuals making a last-ditch attempt to hop on a runaway train headed for a cliff. This year feels different, more subdued. I'm sure it's more complicated, but my guess is that some potential buyers, having sat on the sidelines trying to ‘time the bottom’, are thinking along the lines of ‘well, the prices are down somewhat, so are the interest rates. stock market is up and recession is canceled (yes, recession is coming, but also it’s canceled. Reconcile that). spring is almost here… so this is it, this is the opportunity!’
Except for it’s not. Yes, recession is coming and it’ll be a doozy. We haven’t had a real economic downturn in way too long (and I don’t mean that pandemic-induced pseudo slump with money handed out hand over fist left and right) and we’re way overdue.
A recession is like a forest fire: a necessary phenomenon that allows an ecosystem to clear the way for the young and healthy. And it takes a real good burn to have that reset. If you look back at every market crash over the last century (and beyond, I’m sure), a true rebirth didn’t occur until the feeling of desperation was fully entrenched. Until every smirk off of every day trader’s face was been wiped. Until every money manager scratched their head and said ‘well, that sucked ass’. It hasn’t happened yet. And it has to, if the economy to grow again in a healthy way. The craziness has to be eradicated.
I’m sure that folks at the Fed share that sentiment and the only reason they didn’t jack up rates to 10% and burn the whole thing down is because of the fear of the financial markets collapsing after having for years been propped up by cheap money and grown dependent on it. Central bankers are therefore left with an unenviable task of walking the tight rope between runaway inflation and appeasing the markets.
This craziness won’t last. Sooner or later the markets will need to decide whether recession is coming (not good for housing) or the Fed needs to hike more (ditto). Yes, neither of those scenarios is bullish, but what do you expect after a historic runup in such a short time period? Did you really expect price/income ratios to climb to record values in a matter of a few months and happily stay there? Do you really think the entirety of US real estate is suddenly worth 40% more than just a couple of years ago? I humbly disagree.
What goes up…

2023.02.03 01:47 paperbagPENNY I decided to take a bubble bath instead.

I was triggered by a trauma meme sub today. I normally find those post amusing because of how well I relate. Anyways, It was something so small about finding out what your trauma response was but I didn’t expect it to affect me the way it did. While I did sort of recover, the effects were lingering which led to me having a major breakdown over an inconvenience.
I cried and cried before impulsively attempting to smash my head against my balcony sliding door. I ran to it awkwardly with no thought and my shoulder ended up made contact with the door first, saving my head.
At that point I realized what had happened and how lucky I’d been. I decided to do something I hadn’t done since I was a child, and that was take a bath. I turned off all the lights and I have a candle burning in the corner. Even though I live alone I still locked the bathroom door because I feel so vulnerable taking a bath lol.
I’m still currently in the tub. I don’t know how long I’ll stay in here for, but I wanted to share this small victory and I have no support group whatsoever. It was a rocky start but I am happy with the ending 💜😮‍💨
