2023.06.01 15:23 accidentlysilent Believix Rewrite . ( Context : So , Hi! , Basically i'm just going to be reworking the transformation's perks and as well , how to obtain the transformation in the first place , I am including Sophix both Tharrix [ Lovix ] , too! )

Believix .
[ - Origins of This Transformation?
long ago , a great woman named Gaia was born out of a mountain , she soon fell in love with humans and their emotions and their ardor.humans , and their children read about Fairytales seeking to see the fairies themselves , Gaia created the Earth Fairies , and with the power of belief and purity created the mythical White Circle.
she soon anointed a ruler to the Earth Fairies , and influenced by her love for the humans , she created the Earth fairies with power , and told them that their true spark will only burst when a friendship is born with the humans before Gaia soon melted to the ground and became a part of the mountain but before doing so created the legendary Ethereal Fairies to guide those using the power...
The Earth fairies ruler , upon making a friendship and bond with a human , soon transformed into a form called 'Believix.'The power of Believix could morph into two forms , if the Believix fairy had proven themselves to the Ethereal fairies they would spark into a new power.But of course , light is not completed without darkness , and the white circle has the black circle.

[ - How To Obtain This Transformation? of course! , to obtain this transformation , an Earth Fairy must bond with a human , they must truly bond and gain their belief and trust from the person , if done so , they will gain their spark , this also serves as their 'Final Form' and if they prove themselves to the Ethereal Fairies they will be transformed.But for those who are out of this world , or rather fairies coming from the Great Dragon's Realm , they must go to earth and bond with humans aswell.
[ - Perks! Myalix Wings : a Believix Fairy may equip their Myalix wings , a special pair of wings that allow them to cast a therapeutic spell that allows them to use telepathy to communicate with humans and has 'after effects' that allow them to manipulate nature.Myalix spells also contain positive energy of the white circle , which means it can also battle the black circle , but if the person who the Myalix Spell refuses to change the spell has no effect.( i removed the automatic belief thing because its really weird for some random woman to say 'I hate nature' then suddenly 'omg i love it #heart #omg #WHAT- )
Zoomix , Tracix and Speedix wings will be removed but their properties are added to the Myalix wings.
Sophix.
[ - Origins of This Transformation? its basically an alteration of Believix , known to manipulate the season of Autumn with its power.the first Earth Fairy to obtain this , was the Major Fairy of Nature of course , Lady Diana who after living under the court of Queen Morgana and proved her wisdom in countless battles against rebelling fairies was given under the Ethereal Fairies decree , the Gift of Wisdom and she soon became a general who had her own court in the Amazonia.this transformation would protect anyone under it , and no fairy who had no Sophix had a harder times dealing with the ones wielding the power , but of course this system would be destroyed by the Black Wizards who , after destroying a garden filled with Sophix energy and absorbing it and now The Black Wizards would be more resistant against Lady Diana and her court.
[ - How To Obtain This Transformation? Obtain The Gift of Wisdom , and prove yourself , once done , it will spark to the transformation.I imagine the winx , asking and pleading the Ethereal Fairies for help they place the Winx [ Including Roxy , she deserves to be the 7th winx. ] , the Winx must do logic puzzles with the Winx having to do decisions that truly determine if they want to save Earth. Afterwards , the Winx obtain Sophix and the rest of the episode stays the same.
[ - Perks! Enhanced Powers , with the Winx able to use a special Sophix spell which allows them to heal nature alike and even gain power from it.
Special Spells Names!11! - Eternal Flame , Bloom. - Rebirth of Spring , Flora. - Tidal Heart , Aisha/Layla. - Harmonia's Whisper , Musa. - Order of Flowers , Tecna. - Forest's Serenity , Roxy.
Tharrix
[ - Origins of This Transformation? another alteration and gift of the Ethereal fairies , this transformation was told to be given to those who showed great ardor and courage in doing something , The Gift of Heart would solidify itself to this transformation. Legends say that the first to obtain this transformation was Lady Aurora of The North , who , after doing a battle with a beast and obtaining a scar from it just to protect The White Circle's Palace and The Ethereal Fairies , The Gift of Heart was given to her. Myths tell even more that the reason why Lady Aurora's Hood covers her back is to hide her scar.
[ - How To Obtain This Transformation? of course! , First The Ethereal Fairies must gift you with the Gift of Heart , then once proving your courage and ardor it sparks into Tharrix. , For this Gift of Destiny I quite imagine the Winx during Sibylla's Cave [4x21] that during their venturing , Icicles would rain down and trap the Winx in their fears however their convergence and their courage breaks the trap and the Winx's Gift of heart protects them from actual icicles raining down , and then they proceed to meet Sibylla's , then for [4x22 , The Frozen Tower] i'll just change Bloom's dialogue from 'Let's Use The Gift of Heart' into 'Wait , Remember We Unlocked Something During Sibylla's Cave? [Roxy] , 'Oh Wait , Right! [ Aisha ] , 'Well I guess its about time we use it! Believix , Tharrix! [ Bloom ]'
( For The Part where Roxy almost's freezes to death , let us imagine that instead , Nebula completely filled with rage shoots an Icicle at Roxy that weakens her and makes her almost faint , making her de-transform from Tharrix to Believix again. ]
[ - Perks! The Special Spells this time is about freezing enemies , but this time , I've finally created some ideas for the spell's purpose.
Bloom - Cycle of Passion - Bloom creates a purplish fire track that is heatseeking , once it hits its target it solidifies and traps them in a cage of ice. Flora - Untamable Nature [ I love this name so much so i'm not changing it so ykykk ] - Flora creates a shower of pinecones that once hits a target entraps an enemy in Ice. Aisha - Reign of Waves - Aisha manipulates bubbles to create a river of water , that submerges the target in freezing water , that usually leaves them frozen.
Musa - Winter Chimes - Musa puts her hands together then unleashes a sound attack , that deafens opponents and encases them in a Frozen Orb. Stella - Crystal Light [ i love this one too so ykkykyk ] - Stella unleashes a light that freezes anything that dares look at her beauty , she can also manipulate that light into an orb that explodes and freezes anything caught in the light. Tecna - Prismatic Thunder - Tecna aims with her fingers in a beam like way , then that beam encases the target in a prism , that prism being made out of ice , Tecna can also manipulate the Prism to move the target. Roxy - Artic Claw - Roxy's hand is basically in a claw shape and she uses that claw to strike her enemies down , once the claw touches an enemy it engulfs them in a frozen wall like chamber.
Ty for reading , and have a good day! ( - I'm so sorry that this is so long , I hope you can forgive me-.

2023.06.01 15:14 TangoApocalyptical_ Where do you drive? What's the last couple of weeks been like?

I really want to see some stats on the issue of dead zones. For myself, I am in north Florida.
4.95 rating, 56% acceptance rate, 10% cancellation rate
I don't think demand has dropped this much. Uber has overhauled their platform to exclude picky drivers. I went from being able to make $50-100/night to maybe getting 1 or 2 rides, and I'm pretty sure I can guess why. I doubt it's demand, because too many weird things have been happening randomly....for example last friday night I went driving, got online and ventured out into the deep. It was over an hour and I had not seen any requests, so I go offline and go back on....immediately get a 'out of your preference' eats request for $3. Accept that, complete it, and wait for another ride.....nothing coming in. Go offline and back on, immediately boom another out of preference request....$2
So I thought that was a good tactic to keep using just driving around and toggling off and on, but they just keep giving ridiculous requests that I can't make any money from. How is something like $3 for 12 miles viable?
Too many drivers are calling out common scenarios in some of the biggest cities in the country. I bet if we compared our stats we would notice a similar trend.
We all know Uber is dishonest and does things like baiting drivers to a surge zone only to rip it away when you reach the area. They contain all the power to curtail our experience and unfortunately for those who are struggling it's causing us extreme frustration and affecting our lifestyles. Just wish this was fair, but it looks like they only care about drivers who will accept low fares that take exorbitant amounts of time to complete.
To those who are condescending to drivers, you should be ashamed. I'm willing to bet at some point in your lives you needed or will need a ride from rideshare, and I bet you'd be mad taking a cab...because cabs aren't cheap, neither is Uber for that matter just a little bit less.
These drivers provide a much needed service but it's looked at as a bum job because people just think drivers are worthless, have no skills, lazy, not willing to better themselves.
Drivers are just people, making extra cash, or ends meet...but that isn't commendable in this world. I've used Uber plenty of times, and I know how it is...and when I do use it I tip great. I tip great because I know that most people who Uber are going through tough times, I can see that thousand yard star in their eyes...the feeling of just getting through another day, another trip to the gas station, another PB&J sandwich, another bill finally paid, getting that laundry detergent so you can wash your clothes, standing at the grocery store picking the generic brands and adding the prices up based on what's left in your bank account, declining friends invitations to hang out because you aren't sure you can afford it.
There is a very small percentage that wants to do this for a career. It's a stepping stone to something better. People love to tell you that if you don't like something or it's not enough, find something else. Thanks for that idea, you know I just didn't fucking think of that 🙄
I use it for extra income due to covid wiping out my family's expenses and catching their lives back up, it's been a tough couple of years and Uber has helped me and I am grateful for what I've been able to do. I work my ass off though, nights and weekends I'm on the road putting the hours, miles, wear and tear on my car and self.
I like having the flexibility to drive when I can, so getting a second scheduled job doesn't fit for me.
Please respond and comment your ratings and area so everyone here gets an idea of the BS Uber is pulling.
I'm just very curious.
If you don't have anything constructive to comment just don't. If however, you know of different opportunities I can use to acquire income I'd like to know. I was doing online surveys but that is very time consuming and the payouts are small and infrequent.
Day labor? Fuck....I don't know. I just don't know.
Maybe I'm looking for validation of corruption, maybe I'm crying out for help in fear of losing everything...I feel defeated.

2023.06.01 15:08 mrmrmrj Time to start buying CF Industries

About 200M shares @ $60 = $12B mkt cap. Completely clean balance sheet. Revenues are down from the 2022 peak but still well above 8-10 years ago. CF has a cost advantage to non-US fertilizer suppliers because US natural gas is the cheapest in the world. CF is the global low cost producer. Farmers will always need fertilizer.
I cannot explain the insanely cheap valuation. FCF yield = $2.4B / $15B EV = 16% on 2023 numbers, falling to 13% next year if estimates are correct (but the sell side really has no idea). I thought the stock was on sale at $75, now it's $60. I kept waiting but time to start nibbling.
The quarterly dividend is $0.40, up from $0.30 a year ago, and probably going to $0.50 in the next few years.

2023.06.01 14:58 chrw12345 Ideas for a service-oriented sub

Hi!
I've recently met a really great new potential play partner and we are in the process of testing the waters and chemistry over a few early dates and sessions. Loads in common, good chemistry, broadly like the same mixture of dynamics.
One thing that gives her great pleasure is service, in particular domestic service and cock / cum worship. The latter is in my wheelhouse, but the former I've not had much experience with. I'm a big caregiver and often take a daddy role, buut vanilla me is also a very fussing and overbearing pleaser.
I love being looked after and served, but I'm not in the practice either in a dynamic or outside tbh. I really want to explore this as just the few things so far have been incredible - taking my shoes off at the door, massaging my feet, cooking incredible meals, making my morning coffee.
Can anyone give some examples either from the top or bottom of some ideas for service tasks etc I can give to help us both explore this space? She is very domestically oriented - loves cooking, cleaning and care. I like this and I alsomlike thugs like being washed d down in the shower, massage and being touched / stroked.
Thanks so much - want to grab a rare opportunity to feel looked after whilst still topping with both hands 😂

2023.06.01 14:56 HooliGan1420 21M - I bid thee a humble welcome into my very straightforward but amazingly long post. Feel free to explore, laugh and be charmed if you may ^^

Halloha, my name's Gianluca. Nice to meet you!- is what I would say in a formal setting.
But hence you found me in my area of comfort, welcome to my humble abode. Would you like some tea? Maybe you fancy some Earl Grey.
Anyway anyway I'm starting to babble lol, if you're wondering what I'm here for, it's for talking to you, interesting person out there wherever may you be. Meeting new people and all it brings is something I love. Making friends this way is amazing so therefore I presented myself!
If details are something you're into hearing, i can give you lots:
-I have to refuel every day almost cuz I go through an entire tank in 2 days or less. Love driving around. (Had to get new shoes and take up running to reduce expenses)
-I'm a car mechanic, also a construction worker, carpenter and if patience blesses me on that day; a painter.
-What am I saving up for? Well it's big, pretty massive in fact. So massive i could write an entire letter about it... Huh... Would it be cheeky if I said you can ask about this in your message? Would be a good idea.
-Had to start running everywhere for transport which is fun, I also do cycling, practice jumps and tricks at the bike park and do motorcycle and karting races. (Other categories and car racing are a work in progress, will upgrade soon)
-Music taste: this is the part where you look at a bunch of hyperbabble about bands that don't make a lot of sense unless you heard them, but I'll just throw a buncha names and you can see if any of the following applies: Radiohead, Megadeth, Fishmans, Marillion, The Black Keys, Queens of The Stone Age, Buckethead, Alphaville, Dire Straits, Little River Band, David Bowie, XTC, UB40, Commodores, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Cure.
-Ultramegahyper car and motorcycles fan, but in the weirdest way possible. My dream cars are actually cheap french hot hatches like the 306 and a 90's Renault Clio. The car I'd get first no matter what is a 1998 Ford Focus. If possible the RS version. And as for motorcycles I want a Kawasaki ZXR, 80's style. Also love German cars, especially old BMW's, first one I'd get is an e32 with the M70 V12 engine. Also love old Volkswagens and Audis, without a doubt would own an 80's Audi with one of their 5 cylinder engines and turbocharge it. Also very fond of japanese cars and will own a Nissan in any form possible, especially the 350z
-Played almost every Need For Speed game that ever released, started my journey with the franchise through Underground, and played every release as they launched. (yes even Undercover, I actually enjoyed it). I listen to the soundtracks of old NFS games in my free time. Also played Midnight Club, Forza, Assetto Corsa, FlatOut, Burnout, BeamNG... I COULD KEEP GOING.
-Not everything in my life is about cars though, my day is dedicated to music too, especially playing piano. I'm also a guitar and bass player. And really want to get more sound gear and instruments in the future (Cars and music gear? I'll be broke all the time)
-I'm relatively organized, but living by myself has shown me that being the only person inside the house, I leave stuff around unless somebody visits. But while living with my parents I didn't make any mess anywhere so I'm not an absolute demon.
-Yes, living by myself also requires me to cook and I'm actually an amazing cook. I include lots of seasoning and veggies into the meals, even soy to balance things out and eggs for protein. Learned lots while being independent.
-Fun facts about me to end this: The amount of clothes I have in total is so small that i can wash them all in one washing machine load, the house machine size. I also have 3 different pillows around me at all times cuz I don't like laying on a flat surface. I listen to music even while showering. And I own a dog that requires me to feed her on a daily basis even though I beg her to feed off the sun.
Anyways that's about it from me! Hope you enjoyed this lil introduction that is the size of the Twilight prologue, but way better.

2023.06.01 14:52 archaeologistbarbie Advice needed: can I adjust cake pan size with foil?

Advice needed: can I adjust cake pan size with foil?
I’m trying to recreate the top tier from my wedding cake (anniversary is today!) and the recipe I’ve got calls for 3x 7 or 8 inch cake pans. I have one 8 and two 9 inch ones and I’m wondering if I can essentially use a foil dam to make the two 9 inch ones a bit smaller. I’ve been messing around with foil and parchment and made a scrunched up ring of foil, lined it with a round piece of parchment with edges cut to overlap vertically, then made a ring of foil to sit in the middle to hopefully prevent leaking around/behind the parchment.
Tbh I can’t tell if this is a terrible idea or smart, because I’ve read plenty of things about using foil to make a pan smaller. I’ve just never really tried to do it besides creating a donut pan from a muffin tin, which worked okay.
My cake recipe calls for quite a lot of whipped egg whites, so think baking 3 8 inch layers one after another is probably off the table for batter deflation reasons.
Tl;dr - terrible idea to convert 9 in. cake pans to 8 in. by using foil and parchment?

2023.06.01 14:36 Harrietofthesea Cheap portable diode lasers - waste of time/money or ok for for a bit of messing around?

I'm fully intending on investing in a proper mid-range CO2 laser down the line, but I'm not there yet (figuring out business/products and what exactly I need). Have been planning on outsourcing cutting of some prototypes to external laser cutting places, however I just came across this extremely cheap portable diode laser, and wondering if I could get by with one of these for the purposes of just testing out ideas, without having a particular need for fast efficient cutting.
For the price ($77AUD, which is roughly $50 US dollars), I fully understand it's likely to be a bit of a POS and probably not have a long shelf life, but wondering if this kind of thing can be a passable/usable POS, or just not worth the bother? Would use it for thin ply and acrylic.
Has anyone used this kind of thing and able to share some feedback on their experience?
Specs of this one I've found:

2023.06.01 14:33 yeyebrother12345 Poor Little Kid....

Hi there, I'm Anthony and I solely believe in ghosts and I am a diehard horror fan. But I have never felt so uncomfortable, yet safe, yet paranoid in my life.
I lost my Mom at 14, and my Dad, 2 years, 4 months, and 5 days after. It was a little over a month after my 17th birthday. When my dad died, my sister was 19, her boyfriend (now fiancé) was 22, and none of us had the credit history to refinance on my childhood home. Though it was in one of the many hoods of my hometown in the West Coast, I still miss it to this day, and so does my sister. Since then, I had to go through Guardianship, Probate, and having to get ready to move out.
When I moved with them (my sister and her bf), the area that we live in is about a 15-25 minute, gas-guzzling drive back into my hometown, aka, the city. We live in building 1, which consists of alot of single, stoner mothers with plenty of children. I vividly remember earlier this month i was hanging out with who we will call I, and T, for the remainder of this story. I was sipping on a Coca-Cola and eating a pepperoni pizza slice from dominoes when they told me the story about the poor child known as Bella, I've always called her, Little Bella, since.
Little Bella's parents I believe were doing chores around the house and running errands, And she just so happened to be a wee bit curios and adventurous, as all creative 3 year old children are. Her favorite show was playing (sadly, I don't know which one), and she wanted to turn on the tv. However, the tv was one of the HUGE box tv's like the one i grew up with back in the early 2010's, you know, the ones with the blue, green, and red lights inside of it to project the show. The tv stood on a small little stand that she inevitably climbed on top of, and lets just say that she is now in a place where that show will always play, and she gets to come up with the most beautiful episodes no director could imagine in 10 lifetimes.
The sad thing, was after the loud noises occurred and the inevitable happened, the father put the girl in the bathtub, not filled with water, she was just put in there because the father had no idea of what to do. As someone who sleeps in the living room of the same apartment she "dreamt away" in, and someone who has developed paranoia since my parents passings, I often see shadowy figures of what looks like that little girl, probably with pigtails, and maybe sometimes just a ponytail.
She seems innocent and happy, but sometimes she just spooks me once in a while when the light to the bathroom isn't on and she's lying there in fetal position by the shower handle, once the light goes on it feels like i can feel her scurry past my legs and out the door to probably go outside and come back in the hallway when I'm done.

2023.06.01 14:31 TheOtherArod AITA for not wanting to go on a trip with my pregnant fiancé that I can't afford?

My fiancé (31F) and I (30M) are expecting a baby in November. We both have full-time jobs, a mortgage, and 2 dogs. I cover around 80-90% of the household expenses, including the mortgage, power, insurance, internet, and water bill. She only pays for gas and groceries, and I usually cover the bill when we eat out. We've had this arrangement for several years. We have this arrangement because my income is a lot higher then hers and she has a car payment and student loans she’s paying off.
Recently, with the baby on the way, I've expressed the need for more careful spending. We've been discussing bigger expenses. However, today she suggested going to Mexico to visit her godkids. She got upset when I expressed my inability to afford an unplanned trip, especially considering the expenses we've already had this year. We took a trip to Denver in April, went to South Carolina last month for my uncle's birthday party, and I'm soon heading back to South Carolina to discuss his will since he has cancer and wants my assistance with carrying out his will.
The tickets for the Mexico trip alone are currently around $600 each, and the total cost of the trip would likely be at least $2,000, considering other expenses there. When she asked if I wanted to go, I honestly told her that I can't afford it due to the unexpected expenses we've already had this year.
I have more credit card debt than savings at the moment and need to focus on reducing it. Additionally, as first-time parents, we should be financially prepared for any unexpected expenses that may arise.
I also reminded her that I lent her $2,000 recently to pay her income tax bill, which she promised to repay as soon as she could save up the money.
She accused me of being selfish and claimed this might be our last chance to travel before the baby arrives. I suggested a more budget-friendly alternative, like a local trip to San Antonio using my accumulated points for a two-night stay. However, she instantly rejected the idea and insisted on seeing her godkids. I then told her that if she really wants to go, she can do so, as I believe it's more important for us to be financially stable before the baby arrives in five months. We haven't made any major purchases yet, despite her sisters planning a baby shower.
As I'm typing this, she is ignoring me and not speaking to me. Am I the asshole (AITA)?

2023.06.01 14:22 22244244 Replica One Ring

Hey, this is my first post in this subreddit. I read over the rules, but if its not allowed in this subreddit let me know. I’m new to LOTR and have been wanting to buy a replica One Ring with the chain necklace. I’m aware that Noble Collections has one and WETA/Jens Hansen also sells replica jewelry. I was wondering if anyone has ordered a good quality one from Amazon? I’ve been reading the reviews to try and figure out which one is best. Ideally I would buy the WETA/Jens Hansen one, but it is a bit out of my price range. I’m looking for at least something stainless steel because it will last longer. Also it doesn’t have to be an exact replica, but I don’t want something looking completely fake or cheap either. If anyone has any ideas and is able to help I would really appreciate it.

2023.06.01 14:15 CleaningLadyDrama AITA for paying the cleaning lady what she quoted

This seems clear cut to me (and a very privileged problem), but here we are:
I (46M) just got a promotion at work, and my partner, "Michelle" (45F), suggested I could use a little bit of my raise to get a cleaning person every two weeks for my apartment (we split time between my place and hers). She has someone clean her place and loves the “just cleaned” feeling that comes with having someone clean her place, and this way we’d always be in a place that was just cleaned. I admit I liked the idea, so I agreed.
I asked a friend who lives in the close-by neighborhood (we’re in Chicago) for the name of his and his wife’s cleaning lady (“Katy”). Note: I had talked to Michelle’s person, but I live on the North Side, and she lives on the South Side and her person didn’t want to travel all the way up to the neighborhood I’m in, otherwise I would have used her person.
Katy and I texted, and she asked my address to figure out travel time, how many rooms (2br, 1ba, kitchen, living room, and dining room), square feet (850), and how many people live there (me full time, Michelle is there 50% of the nights, and I have my 13yo daughter 50% of the time as well). She tells me she has her own supplies (I need to provide a vacuum), and the first cleaning will be $140, and then every other week will be $100. This seemed reasonable, so I scheduled a time with her. She came yesterday morning and was there for just under four hours. I gave her $160 in cash (my friend advised me to tip $20 for each cleaning). She told me that wasn’t enough, that she needed $180 for the first cleaning (not including the tip).
I was confused and asked her did it take longer than she expected (no), was it dirtier and she had to work harder (no), did she use more supplies than estimated (no), rather after doing the cleaning, she felt that $180 for the first cleaning, and $140 for each subsequent cleaning was the new price she felt was fair.
I told her that had she told me this BEFORE she started to work (she had done a walkthrough prior to start working so I could show her the apartment) I probably would have agreed to the new pricing (or asked to meet in the middle), but to spring this on me AFTER the work was done, with no real reason for it other than “this is what I think it’s now worth” isn’t fair, and that she can take the $160, but that’s all she’s getting from me and I won’t be using her services in the future.
She took the money, gathered her stuff, and stormed out. She called my friend’s wife, and I’m getting a lot of texts about them about how I’m being cheap and made them look bad (how?). But to me there’s the principle. She quoted a job, worked the job, and then tried to increase the price after the work was done even though she admits she didn’t do more work than what she quoted for or needed more supplies than what she estimated. My friend says I should have just paid because I could afford it. He and I are both big fans of this sub, and we agreed to let you decide, so AITA?

2023.06.01 14:11 NEVANK What too much penis envy can do

This happened about three or four years ago now. Was reminded of it and thought I'd share again. While I've certainly dabbled plenty, this post is about a friend of mine who took too much of the most potent mushroom known to man. There are some things that were probably forgotten about or accidentally left out, it's been a minute, but nonetheless here is my friend's experience.
One night I came home from a long shift at work to find my roommate tripping sack on mushrooms. That in particular wasn't the issue, but he was in a sleeping bag on the floor when my other roommate walked over to him and was just checking on him. He said "Let me see your hand" because we were going to get him out of the bag. He just smiled weirdly and looked at him. So he decided to reach in and grab his hands to move him. As soon as he grabbed his hand a look came over his face of "No you fucking didn't". And yes he fucking did.
He shit, naked all inside the sleeping bag and was playing with it, and my other roommate just grabbed his hands. We all realized how out of it he really was, which for him is saying something. So we decide to leave him in the bag and try to move him to the shower. When we make it to the door to the bathroom we tell him to drop the sleeping bag and he was greatly offended by this and started to get really confused. Out of nowhere, he says "I have to pee". So we tell him to go pee then, pointing at the toilet.
He proceeds to piss in the sleeping bag, standing up. At this point, we just shove him in the bathroom and I took the role of getting him in the shower. Once he was finally in I turn the warm water on and tell him to clean up. He starts humming and singing while moving back and forth slightly. I decided to let him just soak. Right as I was leaving the bathroom I told him "Do not touch this knob", as I feared he may not realize how hot the water is. Before I can say anything else he grabs his dick and begins to masturbate. I yelled at him and he looked shocked. Like everything was fine and had no idea why I was so upset.
We finally get him to clean up and I leave the bathroom. While he was showering I hear him talking and he kept saying "I'm so glad I'm back guys, it's good to be back" and just kept singing. When he got out of the shower it was like a light switch in his brain or something and he was totally back to normal. He kept apologizing saying it felt like a dream that he couldn't remember much of. He was literally mind-blown you could tell by the way he looked. He took a nap and told us the rest of the story which happened while I was at work.
He looked at a painting on the wall of our friend and thought it was Jesus, and at the time he thought that meant the end of the world I guess. So he casually got naked. One of our friends showed up before I got home that night and apparently, he tried to make some sexual advances on him. To the point where he had to put him in a sleeper hold... no one is mad or anything we actually look back and laugh at the whole thing. He learned to tread lightly on the mushrooms after that.

2023.06.01 14:11 Eastern_Internal4114 Estimated cost of repairs?

Hey guys! I have a 1998 chevy 3500 bluebird microbus (4-window) that's getting some work done to it but I wanted to know if anyone else has had similar work done to their bus and how much it cost you? The mechanic said he'll reach out to me in a few days to let me know the cost of the parts & his labor but I want to get an idea from you all on how much I should expect to spend.
The following will be done by the mechanic: -Fix rear axle seal leak
-replace fuel pump & "drop" fuel pan
-replace one of the wires for the bus hazard lights
I'm expecting that with the parts and labor it should come close to 1k but what do you all think?

2023.06.01 14:04 Unlikely_Platform_25 2010 1500 with the 5.3

Hi,
I have been shopping for a new truck on a fairly cheap budget as car loans are quite high right now so want to pay cash and need a new vehicle due to rust :(. There's one at a local dealer that is a 2010 with the 5.3 and 190k miles on it for 10k. I'm a bit skeptical on the mileage but that seems to be the going rate these days at least within a few hundred miles of me in new york. I havnt looked at it yet to check for rust or anything, I don't know much about that year and motor so just wanted to get thoughts on it being a good or bad idea. Body does not look rusted at all, still need to look underneath.
Tldr 2010 Silverado 1500 5.3, 190k miles for $10k. Good idea or bad

2023.06.01 13:51 tweeter46and2 Advice on using a freezer

I am new to this and wanting to get started as cheap as I can to see if it is worth getting into. I have a small chest freezer that I am not using. Thinking about using a cheap wireless temperature controller as I seen in a video. Maybe a pc fan running the wires out the door and attempting to seal up better if necessary. Wireless humidity monitor and maybe some pans of water inside. From what I have read the humidity won’t mess up the meat just alter the taste. My concern is really the freezer. I don’t want to mess it up with it cutting the power on and off so often and not sure how good the temperature controller would work. Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.

2023.06.01 13:40 Zhukov-74 Jason Schreier: Inside the Making of Redfall, Xbox’s Latest Misfire

Over the years, Microsoft Corp.-owned video-game developer Arkane Studios has cultivated a reputation for releasing games that are beloved by fans yet don’t sell very well, such as Prey and Dishonored 2. By contrast, the studio’s most recent game, Redfall, has achieved something new. It has managed to be, at once, a commercial and critical disappointment.
Redfall, a multiplayer shooter set on a fictional Massachusetts island full of vampires, debuted on May 2 and was promptly panned. Fans and critics slammed the game’s bugs and shortcomings. On the review aggregation website Metacritic, Redfall has earned a paltry 54 out of 100, ranking it among the year’s worst-reviewed games.
“It seems there is an issue with every element,” reviewer Tauriq Moosa wrote. “In the end, Redfall feels unpolished, underdone, underwhelming, and uncomfortable.”
Joost van Dreunen, a video-game analyst and professor, said Redfall’s failure highlights the significant gap between Microsoft’s lofty aspirations and its actual products, which also calls “into question Microsoft’s ability to establish long-term franchises on its own strength, rather than buying them outright.”
But to the makers of Redfall, the mediocre reception was no big surprise. The project suffered from unclear direction, frequent attrition and a perennial lack of staff, according to more than a dozen people who worked on the game, speaking anonymously because they were not authorized to discuss it publicly. A spokesperson for Redfall’s publisher, Bethesda Softworks, declined to comment.
Development of Redfall began in 2018. At the time, ZeniMax — the large, privately held owner of Bethesda Softworks — was looking to sell itself. Behind the scenes, the company was encouraging its studios to develop games that could generate revenue beyond the initial sales, a popular trend dubbed “games as a service,” which was taking off in the late 2010s thanks to lucrative hits like Overwatch and Fortnite.
According to people familiar with the process, ZeniMax was strongly urging developers at its subsidiaries to implement microtransactions — that is, recurring opportunities within games for players to spend real money, say, outfitting their characters. Although this wasn’t an absolute mandate, several ZeniMax franchises such as Fallout, Doom and Wolfenstein would soon release new versions incorporating online multiplayer and monetization options.
At Arkane’s headquarters in Austin, Harvey Smith and Ricardo Bare, respected industry veterans, were tapped to serve as co-directors of Redfall. Following the commercially unsuccessful release of its sci-fi shooter Prey a year earlier, leadership across the company wanted to make something more broadly appealing. What eventually emerged was the idea to make a multiplayer game in which users would team up to battle vampires and perhaps pay for occasional cosmetic upgrades.

Suspiciously good condition!
Hey everyone, I recently got this jacket off eBay, it wasn’t cheap but definitely the best condition piece for the price I could find! I don’t know much about these jackets, it seems to have 897 on the tag with the crafted with pride logo and red print on the back of the tag. I’m a bit suspicious as the tag is a LOT more worn then the jacket, it doesn’t have inner pockets and overall the jacket is in great condition. It has a heavy carhartt zipper. It’s almost like someone sewed a vintage tag into a newer jacket! Any ideas? Thank you!
