2023.06.10 22:31 JoshAsdvgi THE SNAKE MYTH


A Hopi Legend

At Tokóonavi, north of the Grand Canyon, lived people who were then not yet Snake people.
They lived close to the bank of the river.
The chief's son often pondered over the Grand Canyon and wondered where all that water went to.
"That must certainly make it very full somewhere," he thought to himself.
So he spoke to his father about it.
''So that is what you have been thinking about," the latter said. "Yes," his son answered, "I want to go and examine it."
The father gave his consent and told his son that he should make a box for himself that would be large enough for him to get into, and he should arrange it so that all openings in the box could be closed.
This the boy did, making also a long pole (according to others a long báho), with which he could push the box in case it became fast or tangled up anywhere.
When he was ready he took a lot of báhos and some food, went into the box, and allowed himself to be pushed into the water, on which he then floated along.
Finally he came to the ocean, where he drifted against an island.
He found the house of Spider Woman (Kóhk'ang Wuhti) here, who called him to come to her house.
He went over and found that he could not get through the opening leading to her house.
"How shall I get in?" he said; "the opening is too small."
She told him to enlarge it.
This he did and then entered.
He told her a story and gave her a báho, and said that he had come after beads, etc.
She pointed to another kiva away out in the water and said that there were some beads and corals there. but that there were some wild animals guarding the path to it.
"If you had not informed me, how could you have succeeded in getting there and how would you have gotten back?
But I shall go with you," she said, "because you have given me a báho, for which I am very glad."
She then gave the young man some medicine and seated herself behind his right ear.
He spurted the medicine over the water and immediately a road like a rainbow was formed from the dwelling of Spider Woman to the other kiva.
On this they went across the water.
As they approached the kiva to which they were going they first encountered a panther, who growled fiercely.
The young man gave him a green báho and spurted some medicine upon him, which quieted him.
A little farther on they met a bear, whom they quieted in the same manner.
Still farther on they came upon a wildcat, to which they also handed a báho, which quieted the animal.
Hereupon they met a gray wolf, and finally a very large rattle-snake (K'áhtoya), both of which they appeased in the same manner as the others.
They then arrived at the kiva, where they found at the entrance a bow standard (Aoát nátsi).
They then descended the ladder and found in the kiva many people who were dressed in blue kilts, had their faces painted with specular iron (yaláhaii), and around their necks they wore many beads.
The young man sat down near the fireplace, Spider Woman still being seated on his ear, but no one spoke.
The men looked at him, but remained silent.
Presently the chief got a large bag of tobacco and a large pipe.
He filled the latter and smoked four times.
He then handed the pipe to the young man and said: "Smoke and swallow the smoke."
The swallowing of the smoke was a test: any one not being able to do that was driven off.
Spider Woman had informed the young man about this test, so he was posted.
When he commenced to smoke she whispered to him: "Put me behind you."
This he did in an unobserved manner, so when he swallowed the smoke she immediately drew the smoke from him and blew it away, and hence he did not get dizzy.
The men who did not observe the trick were pleased and said to him:
''All right, you are strong; you are certainly some one.
Thank you.
Your heart is good: you are one of us; you are our child." "Yes." he said, and handed them some red nakwákwosis and a single green báho with red points, such as are still made in Shupaúlavi in the Antelope society.
They then became very friendly, saving that the were very happy over the báhos.
On the walls of the kiva were hanging many costumes made of snake skins.
Soon the chief said to the people:
"Let us dress up now," and turning to the young man bid him to turn away so that he would not see what was going on.
He did so, and when he looked back again the men had all dressed up in the snake costumes and had turned into snakes, large and small, bull- snakes, racers, and rattle-snakes, that were moving about on the floor hissing, rattling, etc.
While he had turned away and the snake People had been dressing themselves, Spider Woman had whispered to him that they were now going to try him very hard, but that he should not be afraid to touch the snakes; and she gave him many instructions.
Among those present in the kiva had also been some pretty maidens who had also put on snake costumes and had turned into serpents.
One of them had been particularly handsome.
The chief had not turned into a snake, and was sitting near the fireplace.
He now turned to the young man and said to him:
"You go now and select and take one of these snakes."
The snakes seemed to be very angry and the young man got frightened when they stared at him, but Spider Woman whispered to him not to be a coward, nor to be afraid.
The prettiest maiden had turned into a large yellow rattle-snake (Sik'á-tcua), and was especially angry.
Spider Woman whispered to the young man, that the one that acted so very angrily was the pretty maiden and that he should try to take that one.
He tried, but the snake was very wild and fierce.
"Be not afraid," Spider Woman whispered, and handed him some medicine.
This he secretly chewed and spurted a small quantity of it on the fierce snake, whereupon it immediately became docile.
He at once grabbed it, held and stroked it four times upward, each time spurting a little medicine on it, and thus freeing it from its anger.
The chief was astonished and said: "You are very something, thanks.
Now, look away again." He did so and when he turned back he saw that all the snakes had assumed the forms of men and women again, including the maiden that he had captured. They now were all very good to him, and talked to him in the kindest manner, because they now considered him as initiated and as one of them.
He was now welcome, and the chief invited him to eat.
The mána whom the young man had taken got from another room in the kiva some bread made of fresh corn-meal, some peaches, melons, etc., and set this food before the young man.
Spider Woman whispered to the young -man to give her something to eat too, which he did secretly.
She enjoyed the food very much and was very happy.
Now the chief asked the man why he came, etc.
"I hunt a lólomat kátcit (good life) and was thinking about the water running this way, and so this way it runs.
I have come also to get Hopi food from here.
I also heard that there lives a woman here somewhere, the Hurúing Wuhti, from whom I want beads."
"What have you for her?" they asked.
"These báhos," he said. "All right, you will get there.
But now you sleep here."
But Spider Woman wanted to get back.
He told them that he wanted to go out a little while.
Then he went and took Spider Woman home, and put her down.
She invited him to come and eat with her.
She had a pövö'lpik'i off which she lived and which never gave out, but he left her and returned to the Snake kiva, where he was welcomed and called brother and son-in-law (möö'nangwuu), although he had not yet married, but only caught the mána.
So he remained there.
That evening and night the chief told him all about the Snake cult, altar, etc., etc., and instructed him how he must put this up, and do that, when he would return.
He did not sleep that night.
In the morning he again went out on the same excuse as the previous evening, and went to Spider Woman, who went out. She made a rainbow road into the ocean to a high bluff where Hurúing Wuhti lived, and to which they ascended on a ladder. They went in and found an old hag, but on all the walls many beads, shells, etc.
The woman said nothing.
The young man gave her the báhos, then she, said faintly, "Áskwali!" (Thanks!)
At sundown she went into a side chamber and returned a very pretty maiden with fine buffalo and wildcat robes, of which she made a bed, and after having fed him, invited him to sleep with her on the bed.
Then Spider Woman ,whispered he should comply with her request, then he would win her favor and get the beads.
So he did as requested.
In the morning he awoke and found by his side an old hag, snoring.
He was very unhappy,
He stayed all day, the hag sitting bent up all day.
In the evening the change, etc., that occurred on the previous day was repeated, but the hag after this remained a pretty maiden.
He remained four days and nights with Hurúing Wuhti, who is the deity of the hard substances.
After four days he wanted to go home, so she went into a room on the north side and got a turquoise bead; then from a room west the same: from a room South a reddish bead (cátsni); from one east, a hard white bead (hurúingwa), a shell.
Then she gave him a few of all kinds of beads and told him to go home now, but charging him not to open the sack, because if he did they would be gone, and if he did not they would increase.
"You go to the Snakes, who will give you clothes, food, etc."
He then returned to the Snake kiva.
There he staved four days and four nights, sleeping with his wife.
When he was ready to go home the chief said: "Take this mána with you.
You have won us.
Take it all with you, take of our food.
Practice the ceremonies there that I told you about.
This woman will bear you children and then you will be many and they will hold this ceremony for you."
So they started.
At Spider Woman's house he told his wife, ''You stay here.
I will go to the rear."
So he went to Spider Woman's house and she asked:
''Well, did you get the mána?" "Yes," he said. "Well, you take everything along."
But she forbid him to touch his wife while they would be on the way, as then his beads would disappear and also his wife.
So they started.
The beads were as yet not heavy.
During the night they slept separately.
In the morning they found that the beads had increased, and they kept increasing as they went along the next day.
The next night they spent in the same way.
They were anxious to see whether the beads and shells had increased, but did not dare to do so.
The third night was again spent, and the contents of the bag increased the same as the previous two nights.
The bag with the beads and shells now became very heavy and the young man was very anxious to see them, but his wife forbade him to open the sack.
The fourth night was spent in the same manner, and when they arose in the morning the sack was nearly full and was very heavy.
Spider Woman had also put some strings into the bag with the beads, and the beads were strung onto these strings a,; they kept increasing.
They now approached the home of the young man, and the latter was very anxious to get home in order to see the contents, of the sack, so they traveled on.
When they had nearly one more day's travel to make the sack had become full.
During the last night the man opened the sack, although his wife remonstrated most energetically.
He took out many of the finest beads and shells and spread them on the floor before them, put them around his neck, and was very happy.
So they retired for the night.
In the morning they found that all the beads except those which Hurúing Wuhti had given to the man had disappeared. Hence the Hopi have so few beads at the present day.
If that man had at that time brought home with him all the beads which he had, they would have many.
So when they arrived at home they were very despondent.
At that time only the Divided or Separated Spring (Bátki) clan and the Pö'na (a certain cactus) clan lived at that place, but with the arrival of this young couple a new clan, the Snake clan, had come to the village.
Soon this new woman bore many children.
They were snakes who lived in the fields and in the sand. They grew very rapidly and went about and played with the Hopi children, whom they sometimes bit.
This made the Hopi very angry and they said:
"This is not good," and drove them off, so they were very unhappy.
The woman said to her husband:
"You take our children back to my home and there we shall go away from here alone."
Then the man's father made báhos, gave them to his son, who put all the snakes with the báhos into his blanket and took them back to his wife's home, and there told the Snake people why he brought their children and the báhos.
They said it was all right.
Hence the Snake priests, when carrying away the snakes from the plaza after the snake dance, take with them and deposit with the snakes some báhos, so that they should not themselves return to the village.
When the Snake man returned to his village lit and his wife traveled south- eastward, stopping at various places.
All at once they saw smoke in the distance, and when they went there they found a village perched son the mesa.
This was the village of Wálpi.
They at once went to the foot of the mesa on which Wálpi was situated and announced their presence.
So the village chief went down to them from the mesa, and asked what they wanted.
They asked to be admitted to the village, promising that they would assist the people in the ceremonies.
The chief at first showed himself unwilling to admit then), but finally gave his consent and took them up to the village.
From that time the woman bore human children instead of little snakes.
These children and their descendants became the Snake clan, of whom only very few are now living.
Soon also the Bátki and Pö'na clan came to Wálpi and found admittance to the village.
At Wálpi the Snake people made the first Snake típoni, Snake altar, etc., and had the first Snake ceremony.
From here the Snake cult spread to the other villages, first to Shongópavi, then to Mishóngnovi, and then to Oraíbi.
At the first Snake ceremony the Snake chief sent his nephew to the north, to the west, to the south, and to the east to hunt snakes.
He brought some from each direction,
The chief then hollowed out a piece of báho, made of cottonwood root.
Into this he put the rattles of three of the snakes and the fourth snake entirely.
He then inserted into it a corn-ear, and tied to it different feathers of the eagle, the oriole, blue-bird, parrot, magpie, Ásya, and topóckwa, winding a buckskin String around these feathers.
When he had made this típoni, the first ceremony was celebrated, and afterwards it took place regularly.

2023.06.10 22:31 PufffPufffGive After a year of (what I believe could be a rebirth) I’ve had 5 snakes cross my path in the last 3 weeks. Any Thoughts?

Early 2022 my best friend. Whom I loved very dearly chose to take her life. In that same time period my partner chose to end our relationship and cut all ties. Then my Boxer tested positive for cancer. I Broke. Mentally, physically and spiritually. I cried everyday for a year. Barely left my home and isolated from Everyone I knew. I have never felt so empty and invisible and sad. I’ve never died before. I was forced to look inside myself on a whole new level. I honestly thought I might die. It took a lot of will, hope and work on myself to finally after a year be able to exhale. I recently left a very toxic job chose to road trip through Utah & Sedona. In my travels I had multiple snakes cross my path. One at night went over my boot while unpacking my tent. The next I was sitting next to a stream in Zion writing my thoughts and it just popped out the stream slithered towards me and then took off for the bushes. The third I was in Bryce Canyon meditating after breakfast and I opened my eyes and there’s a snake crossing my path to get to the forest. In Sedona I was on a hike with my pup. Listening to a talk about rebirth and out of no where this huge snake pops out of the brush and dances it’s way down the path with me. Yes I get it’s Utah and Arizona. Well I’m in a new job have gone back to yoga and meditation and I’m starting to see color in my days again. I was on a micro dose mediating yesterday and poof a snek (not once have I seen one on my property) is sunning in my backyard and slithered across my path.
Would one consider this to be sign of sorts. I feel like Gaia is trying to show me something. Either that or I’m a snek charmer.

2023.06.10 22:29 JoshAsdvgi The Sly Young Man

The Sly Young Man

The Sly Young Man

There were two brothers, one married, the other unmarried.
The married one lived in one place; the unmarried one, in another.
They did not want to live together.
One time the unmarried brother wanted to visit the married one.
When he approached his house, he listened, and thought, "Why, my brother and his wife are talking and laughing quite merrily."
When he came nearer, however, he noticed that the man's voice was not that of his brother.
So he crept along the wall very cautiously, and then looked through a rent in the skin covering.
A strange man was having quite a merry time with his sister-in-law.
They were hugging and kissing, and talking and playing with each other.
He thought, "My brother is not here.
Probably he is off hunting wild reindeer."
The others meanwhile took off their breeches to and made love right before him, though unaware of his presence.
At the most critical moment the young man entered the house.
The woman, however, shook herself free, swifter than a she-ermine, and in a moment the man too was hidden beneath the blanket.
The young man said nothing.
He simply sat down and waited for the evening.
The other man, the one hidden under the blanket, having nothing else to do, also waited. Late in the evening, the married brother came home.
The unmarried brother said nothing to him about the strange man hidden in the house, the woman also said nothing; but both were silent and very anxious.
The married brother said, "Listen, wife! Our brother has come to visit us.
Cook plenty of the best meat and reindeer-fat, and we will have a hearty meal .
The visiting brother said nothing, and waited, as before.
The woman cooked some meat, and taking it out of the kettle, carved it with great care and spread the meal.
The married brother said, "Come on! Let us eat!"
The other answered, "How can we eat, since a strange man is hidden in our house?"
The married brother said, "Then I shall look for him in every corner, and certainly I shall find him."
He did so, searching all through the house, but found nothing.
Then he said again, "So it was a joke of yours.
Come on! Let us have a meal!"
The unmarried brother said, as before, "How can we have a meal?
A strange man is hidden in the house."
The same happened three successive times.
At last the unmarried brother said, "Leave me alone!
How can we have a meal? A strange man is hidden in your bed, and covered with your own blankets."
The married brother pulled off the blanket.
The strange man was lying there, face downward.
His head was under the pillow.
The married brother felt very angry.
He drew his knife and with a single blow, cut off the head of the adulterer.
Then he came to himself and said with great sorrow, "Oh, brother! – and you, woman!
You ought to have warned me in time.
Now, what is to be done? I have killed a man. What will happen to us?"
He sat down and cried most wretchedly.
The other brother said, "What of it?
There is no need of crying.
He has been killed, and we cannot change it.
It is better that I carry off the body and dispose of it."
He took the body and carried it off.
After sometime he found the tracks of the killed man and followed them up.
He came to a beaten road, and then to a large village.
It had numerous houses, some of them Tungus, and some Yakut.
They had herds of reindeer and also of horses.
In the middle of the village stood a large house just like a hill.
It was the house of the chief of the village.
The unmarried brother arrived there in the night time and soon found the house of the killed man.
He entered at once, carrying the corpse on his back.
The parents of the killed one, an old man and an old woman, were sleeping on the right hand side of the house.
The bed of their son was on the left hand side.
He went to the bed, put down the body, and covered it with a skin blanket.
He tucked in the folds with great care, and then placed the head in its proper place, so that he looked just like a man sleeping.
The old man, and the old woman heard a rustling sound and thought, "Ah, it is our son!
He has come home." Then the father said, "Ah, it is you! Why are you so late?"
In another corner slept the elder brother of the killed man and his wife.
He also said, "Why are you so late? You ought to be asleep long ago."
The man who had carried in the corpse crept softly out of the house and went home.
He came to his married brother, who said, "Ah, it is you! You are alive.
And what have you done with the body?" – "I carried it to the house of his parents and put it down on his own bed.
He ought to have slept on it long ago."
After that they had a meal.
Then the unmarried brother said again, "I will go back and see what happened to the dead body." – "Do not go!
This time they will surely kill you." – "They will not kill me. I shall go and see."
He would not listen to his married brother, and went back to the house of the dead man.
He approached, and heard loud wailing.
The relatives of the killed man were lamenting over the body.
He entered and saluted the old man.
Then modestly he sat down at the women's place.
The old man said, "I never saw such a face in our village.
Certainly, you are a stranger, a visitor to our country." – "I am," said the young man.
"And why are you lamenting in this wise?" –
"We have good reason for it," said the old man.
"Two sons we had, and now we have lost one of them.
He used to walk in the night time, heaven knows where.
Then he grew angry with us and in that angry mood he cut off his own head.
After that he lay down, covered himself with a blanket, and then he died.
So you see we have good reasons for lamenting."
They had a meal and then some tea.
After that the old man said, "We have no shamans in our village, although it is large. Perhaps you know of some shaman in your own country?" –
"Yes," said the young man, "I know of one."
He lied once more. He did not know of any shaman. "Ah!" said the old man, brightening up, "if that is so, go and bring him here."
He asked them for two horses, – one for himself, and another for the shaman whom he was to bring.
"I will ride one horse, and the other I will lead behind with a halter for the shaman."
He rode off without aim and purpose, for he knew of no shaman.
After a long while he came to a lonesome log cabin.
Some wolflings were playing before the entrance.
He entered. An old wolf-woman was sitting on a bench.
Her hair was long, it hung down and spread over the floor.
A young girl was sitting at a table. She was quite fair, fairer than the sun.
This was the Wolf-girl. The wolflings outside were her brothers.
The old woman looked up and said, "I never saw such a face in our own place.
No human beings ever came here.
Who are you, – a human creature, or something else?" – "I am human." –
"And what are you looking for, roaming about?" – "I am in great need.
I am looking for a shaman, having been sent by a suffering person."
She repeated her question, and he answered the same as before.
The old woman held her breath for some time.
Then she said, "I am too old now.
I do not know whether I still possess any power, but in former times I used to help people." He took hold of her, put her upon his horse, and rode back to the old man's home.
He took her into the house, and said, "This is the shaman I have brought for you."
They treated her to the best dainties, and all the while she was drying over the fire her small, strange shaman's drum.
After that she started her shamanistic performance.
According to custom, she made the man who had taken her there hold the long tassel fastened to the back of her garments.
"Take care!" said the old woman, "do not let go of this tassel!"
He grasped the tassel, and the old woman wound herself around like a piece of birchbark over the fire.
The house was full of people, housemates, guests, onlookers.
After a while the young man said, "I feel very hot.
Let somebody hold this tassel for a little while, and I will go out and cool myself."
He went out of the house.
The moon was shining brightly.
A number of horses were digging the snow for some tussock-grass.
He caught them all.
Then he cut down some young willow and prepared a number of willow brooms – one for each of the horses.
He tied the brooms to the tails of the horses.
Then he set them afire, and set the horses free.
Seeing the glare and scenting the smell of fire, they ran away in every direction.
He went back and took hold of the tassel again, as though nothing had happened.
Then some other person went out, and hurried back, shouting, "O men! the country all around is aflame!"
And, indeed, the horses were galloping about, waving high their tails of fire.
"Who lighted this fire?" said the people. "Perhaps the spirits."
Everyone left the house. They stood outside, staring upon that living fire fleeting by.
"Ah, ah!" said some of them. "It is our end. This fire will burn us down."
Not one of them thought any more of the old woman.
The young man, however, quietly slipped back into the house.
The old woman was drumming more violently than ever.
She was so full of inspiration, that she had noticed nothing at all.
He looked about. No one was there. The old woman drummed on.
Then he lifted from the ground a big kettle full to the brim of ice-cold water and all at once he overturned it over the old woman's head.
After that he put the kettle over her head and shoulders.
The old woman shuddered, and fell down dead, as is the way of all shamans when frightened unexpectedly.
The young man left the house, and mingled among the people outside, looking most innocent.
After some time, however, he said, "Why are we standing here looking at this blaze, and meantime we have left the shaman alone in the house?
That is wrong."
They hurried back, and the wolf shaman was lying on the ground, wet and stone dead, half hidden in the kettle.
The old man was in great fear, and wailed aloud, "Alas, alas! I lost a son, and that was bad enough; but it is much worse that this Wolf-woman has died in our house.
Her children will surely come and wreak vengeance upon our heads.
We are already as good as dead. O God!" he continued, "we are in a bad plight.
Somebody must go and carry the Wolf-woman to her own house."
The people were full of fear and nobody wanted to go.
Then the old man tried to induce the young visitor to convey the body of the Wolf-woman to her family.
The young man said, "How can I do this? They will tear me into bits."
The old man had a young daughter who was very pretty.
He said, "Please toss this old woman away! If you come back alive, you may marry this young girl as your reward." –
"All right," said the young man, "but still I am not sure.
Perhaps, even if I come back alive, you will break your word and give me nothing." –
"No, never!" said the old man, "I will deal honestly with you." –
"So be it," said the young man.
"Now please kill for me two ptarmigan, and give me their bladders filled with fresh and warm blood."
He took the bladders and placed them under his armpits.
Then he drove some iron nails into his heels, into the very flesh.
He took the old woman and put her upon the saddle.
Then he bound her fast, though not very strongly.
She looked, however, quite like a living person riding a horse.
They set off and reached the house of the wolves. "Oh," the wolflings raised a yell, "Mamma is coming, mamma is coming!
"Easy," said the young man. "My horse shies easily.
Take care lest you cause some great misfortune."
And he secretly spurred his horse with the nails of his feet.
The horse reared and threw him down.
The other horse did the same.
The body of the wolf-mother fell down like a bundle of rags.
The bladder burst, and all the blood was spilled.
They lay there side by side, swimming in blood.
The wolf-children said, "O brother! our mother is dead; but that is as nothing.
We have killed that stranger by our imprudence.
He is near unto death, and no doubt his brothers and sisters, and all his kith and kin, will come here to have revenge."
They went near and looked at him.
The blood was streaming down his arms and legs. "Oh, oh!" said the wolf-children, "How can be live?"
In despair they took him by the hands and feet and shook him and said to him, "Please, man, do not die here!
We will give you our pretty sister."
They worried him, howled over him, and entreated him, and by and by he acted as though feeling a little better.
He sighed low, "Oh, oh!" In the end he fully revived and came to.
"Ah!" said the wolflings to their sister, "see what good luck we have.
A man was dying, and we said, 'We will give you our sister,' and he revived."
So he took the girl and went home.
"Be sure," said the wolf children on taking farewell, "when you return to your own place, not to tell your kinsmen that we had nearly killed you!" –
"I will not tell," assured the man, and galloped off with his bride.
They came to the old man. "I have come back and am alive!" shouted the young man. "Where is the girl?" –
"Here she is," said the old man.
"Thank the Spirits, you have come back safe!" He took the other girl, and went back to his brother with two women and three horses.
The brother said, "How long it is since you were here! I thought you were dead but I see you have brought some girls." –
"I have," said the young man.
He entered the house, and without much ado, cutoff the head of his sister-in-law.
"There you are!" said he.
"You shall have no more paramours."
He gave his brother the old man's daughter and took for himself the old woman's daughter. After that they lived on.

I’m an almost 20m and haven’t had a job. My first job was at a Pizza Hut, but I suck at listening to instructions and socializing. Also I get easily overwhelmed.
My main idea was to become a delivery person for Amazon or something. One I don’t have delivery people’s food, I would be driving place to place on my own. I would get physical action from loading trucks and moving boxes and delivering them. And I hear drivers and delivery people get paid a lot more than say retail or whatever.
Problem I haven’t got my license yet I have a permit and have completed the class part of the dmv program all I need to do is the final exam and get my license, but I hate driving and my mom is a pretty shitty teacher yelling and putting pressure on me instead of understanding my limits and feeling comfortable on the road.
There’s also school and I’m planning on getting a job as a computer programmer so I could learn to code and work from home. Which is great because transportation is an issue and I wouldn’t have to worry about social crap. Also coding would be cool as just a practical thing cause I’m a creative person and want to develop games, websites, and I’m into animation and stuff.
So any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
PS: does anyone know if there’s a subreddit that is basically about beginner life advice like doing taxes and paying bills. Also with budgeting and what have you.

2023.06.10 22:15 RevolutionarySpend30 Should I have road tested a new timing belt?

Hey everyone!
So I’m going to go out on a limb and embarrass myself here for the benefit of my knowledge and for those on this sub.
I replaced the timing belt and water pump on a friends VW Golf Plus with the 1.6 BSE Engine.
After I had everything back together she started right up and ran like a dream. I proceeded to top up the coolant with the ac blower on its lowest and temperature on its highest, and once the engine temp stayed at a stable 90 degrees Celsius I topped up coolant to max and then called it a day.
That means I had the engine running for 15 Minutes with the new belt and pump and gave it a couple revs (up to max 3,000 rpm).
I’m back home now and wondering if I should have road tested the car to see if the timing belt tensioner (also new) remains in proper tension position under load? Or if the new belt in general sits right?
Background: I’m an apprentice BMW tech and the last Timing Belt I did was today on my friends VW 😂 needless to say the only thing I’ve done so far timing wise is chains so I’m not sure.

2023.06.10 22:15 MushyCacti Any good places to buy trichocereus in or near Sacramento? I'm staying in the bay this weekend but I'll be over in Sac tomorrow

Any other recommendations where to buy trichos in the bay would be nice too. I've been trying to find Altman's PC at home depots but so far no luck. Thanks!

2023.06.10 22:11 pinguinconscious Words from a former professional player - Jim Courier: "I still had a bit of magic in me"

Former No. 1 and holder of four Grand Slams, The American Jim Courier looks back on his best memories at the start and end of his career, the defeats he suffered and the coaches who forged him.
Who was the strongest player you faced in your career?
Pete Sampras was the best in the 90s and he was very difficult to manoeuvre because he was a rhythm breaker. He made it impossible for you to feel safe, even when you were on serve. He wouldn't do anything extravagant for four games in a row, then suddenly, at the end of the set, he'd slam down two or three points. If you haven't played in the previous games, you forget how to play. His serve was incredible, but he was just as dangerous on the return. I also really struggled against (Ivan) Lendl. I only had the chance to play him when he was really in top form and that was difficult for me to manage. His sliced backhand was frighteningly effective because it stayed very low on my backhand. At the end of his career, I was starting to develop the tools to compete, but I wasn't there yet and he beat me soundly at the Masters (6-2, 6-3 in 1991 in Frankfurt). At the time, the courts were very fast with a very low bounce and I suffered enormously. People forget just how incredible Ivan's consistency was.
Who was your favourite player to play against? The matches against Andre (Agassi), he was the complete opposite of Pete. We had a similar style and it was very open in a way. If I played well enough, I could win. If I didn't, he'd beat me. I wasn't at his level when I arrived on the circuit. He came first, still as a teenager. But once I got stronger, I started to feel comfortable against him (trailing 4-1, he finished 7-5 in his favour).
The most incredible match you've ever played?
Against (Marat) Safin in the Davis Cup (won 0-6, 6-4, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 in the 1st round in 1998). It was a decisive fifth match against Marat, who was still a teenager. He was new to the circuit, inexperienced, but brilliant nonetheless, and he was killing me. I was down 6-0, 4-1 in forty-five minutes, and he was hitting winners all over the place. I was at the end of my career and that's when I used my backhand slice to beat him. It wasn't the kind of shot you'd think would be effective other than in defence. But I used it to change the tone of the match and it worked. I used all my science and experience. There was another decisive Davis Cup match in the same vein against (Greg) Rusedski (1999, 8-6 win in the fifth set). Those were moments when, at the end of my career, even though I wasn't winning as much as I used to, I still had a bit of magic in me.
You don't mention Pete Sampras' tears (*) in Australia in 1995...
That match (defeat in the quarter-finals 6-7, 6-7, 6-3, 6-4, 6-3) probably made me think of more things than any other match I've ever played, so it's bound to be unforgettable.
It was the first time people saw Pete in a different light. There was drama on the pitch, there was a lot of drama off it, everything was dark above us. We both had cramps after the game in the dressing room. It was incredible. It really was.
His coach, Tim Gullikson, who had suffered a brain tumour, had been rushed back to the United States following a third stroke that very morning. The American was overcome with tears at the start of the fifth set when a spectator shouted "Do it for your coach, Pete!
How did you come up with the idea of asking him if he wanted to stop the match and carry on the next day?
It came naturally. It was one of those moments when the match almost came to a halt because he was overwhelmed by emotion. But we had to carry on and that was the only way I could think of to get him back into the game because he was letting go. What people probably don't know is that I was close to his coach, both Tim and Tom Gullikson, our Davis Cup captain. We were all part of the same travelling circle. So the night before the match, we all went to dinner together. We had a table of ten with my coach, Pete, Tom and Tim, who was on the plane back to the States when we were on the court. So there was no animosity between Pete and me. I understood exactly what he was going through and I had to bring him back into the moment. Then he won the match, but I don't regret it.
Which coach has had the biggest impact on you?
The one who has helped me the most in my professional career is José Higueras, as well as Brad Stine. With José, I went from being a good player to a great player. But if I hadn't met Harry Hopman, who allowed me to come and train at his academy on a scholarship when I was 11 or 12, or Nick Bollettieri, who did the same a few years later, we wouldn't be talking together. Because I come from a very small town (Stanford, in Florida) where I was the best at the age of 10, but where there was no competition to help me progress. They say there are forks in the road in life. These three have been really important in mine.
The moment that changed your career? In Paris, in 1991 against Andre Agassi (3-6, 6-4, 2-6, 6-1, 6-4). A lot of very, very good players reach the Grand Slam final and never win. I'll never know if I would have been able to overcome defeat in that first final. But I didn't lose and that's what gave me the confidence and conviction to carry on and play at a good level.
How important was your heated discussion with (Brad) Stine in the car park of the Rome tournament a few weeks before your first French Open title?
Huge, really. I'd started the season well, played well in Australia and won the two Masters 1000 tournaments in the United States (Indian Wells and Miami), which enabled me to break into the top 10 and gave me the belief that I could go even further in a Major. After that, I came to Europe thinking I could carry on where I left off, but that wasn't the case. I struggled in Hamburg, which was Madrid's tournament at the time. And in Rome, I wasn't up to the task (eliminated in the last 16 by Cherkasov). I expected to win. I acted as if it was a done deal, and Brad immediately told me: "OK, now you have to win again, nothing can be taken for granted. It was essential for me to change my mindset. Brad had the courage to do it, which is not the case for all coaches.
Do you remember his words?
Not the words specifically, but the tone. It was eye-to-eye. I didn't want to talk to him and he didn't want to let me go off on my own. We had to have this discussion, we had to have it at that very moment. That's why he's such a good coach and still works so well with Tommy (Paul, 17th in the world). And he loves France, which is one of the reasons why I speak a bit of French...
When did you feel the strongest?
It's probably not the answer you were expecting, but it was precisely after I lost to (Stefan) Edberg in five sets in the last 16 of the 1991 Australian Open. I'd had problems with my physical resistance in previous years. I remember coming out of that match feeling that my game was in place, but also that my legs and my lungs were in great shape, that I was physically very strong. A week later, I went to Indianapolis for strength and endurance tests. I did a VO2 max test where they put a tube in your mouth, inject oxygen, put you on a treadmill and you run until you can't go any further. The machine kept running and every 30 seconds it went up and up... I remember wanting to stop three times. But I kept pushing and pushing. In the end I got off, but the people who were there, who saw all the Olympians going by, couldn't believe it. Did this tennis player stay at this speed for so long? They told me my score was 72, like the cyclists, which was incredible. That's when I said to myself that I wasn't going to lose any more matches because of fatigue. I'd started working on my fitness with Pat Etcheberry in November the previous year and had made a huge leap forward in that area. I felt almost irresistible. And that was just before coming here to Roland Garros.
When did you feel loneliest?
When I lost here to Sergi (Bruguera), when I was trying to win my third Roland Garros and I was leading. He came back and won and I felt very alone that night (6-4, 2-6, 6-2, 3-6, 6-3).
Wasn't it worse at the 1993 Masters when you read a book at the change of ends against Andrei Medvedev in the group stage?
I was just tired from a long season at the time. I was just trying to survive, because I didn't particularly like being in tournaments at that time of year. I wanted to go home. What people forget about that moment is that I was losing before I got the book out ('Maybe the moon' by Armistead Maupin) and started distracting myself. And then I came back and served for the win. I had three match points at 6-5 in the third and then I panicked (defeat 6-3, 1-6, 7-6). If I'd won, people would have said that reading at the changeover was the new winning strategy, but that didn't happen. So the story was told the other way round, but it was a survival mechanism that kept me competitive because I was mentally exhausted after a long season.
Which current player is most like you?
Rafa's (Nadal) relentlessness is something that speaks to me. For those of us who know what it means to see Federer, Djokovic, Nadal and even Murray succeed, the consistency they've shown and all the work they've put in, it's hard to identify with them. But of all these players, I identify with Nadal the most, because he's physical, like I was myself. He doesn't have a crushing serve like I did. But he tries to impose his forehand and when he plays, I can see the game through his eyes. Even though I've never been as good as him, I at least understand what he's trying to do.
Your biggest regret?
I don't have any regrets. I don't have to. I live my life with my eyes wide open. Taking in as much information as I can and using it to make choices and stick to them. It's easy to live your life with a mirror and look back wondering what you would have done if you'd gone left instead of right. But I think I've been extremely lucky. First of all, I have a wonderful family, parents, brothers and sisters who have given me a lot of stability to pursue my dream. In a way, I've found my vocation and I couldn't have had a life like this if I'd gone in any other direction. Even if my career had been better, my life couldn't have been better."
His life as a former professional player
Since the end of his career in May 2000, Jim Courier has become the star consultant for American television. Davis Cup captain between 2010 and 2018, he now covers the Grand Slam tournaments, excluding Wimbledon, on the Tennis Channel. At the Australian Open, he was one of the first former tennis champions to interview players on court after matches, an exercise in which he excels and has no equal. He lives in Los Angeles, where he keeps fit by cycling and playing golf at the LA Country Club, where he will be present next week for the US Open (15-18 June). He is also one of the prestigious ambassadors of Swiss watch manufacturer Rolex, a major global partner of tennis for over 45 years. Alongside other great champions of the past (Roger Federer, Björn Borg, Chris Evert...) and the new generation (Carlos Alcaraz, Iga Swiatek...). "It's an honour to be part of this family and to contribute to the development of a sport that has already given me so much.

2023.06.10 22:10 Vulture_sosunny Stubborn Misogynist Cust. Vs. Knowledgeable Female HC

Nothing cracks me up more than customers who come in and refuse to work with me because of my gender. I’m a female head cashier, most of the front end management team at our store consists of women. Never mind that I’m the one running the shift, we have a few regulars that despise working with the women and always opt for male cashiers, regardless of how new / inexperienced they may be. Last week I had a customer come in and ask one of my newer [male] cashiers about our return policy regarding plants. This cashier does a great job and he’s an absolute sweetheart, but he was stumped and pointed the customer in my direction. I was standing by the pro desk with one of the male associates. We were chatting when the customer approached us. For context, I am 5’4”, and this pro associate was well over six feet. I was also in between the customer and the pro associate.
Cust. : “Hello sir, I have a question for you.” The customer didn’t look at me at all, and was looking above me past my head at the pro associate.
Pro : “Hello.”
Me : “Hello sir.”
Cust. : “So I have these plants at home I need to bring in to swap out or get my money back, I just wanted to know what your policy was?”
Pro : “Ah, well,” the associate looks towards me.
I launch into an explanation with the customer, who still does not look at me and only the pro associate, about how our return policy on plants works and how he can go about it easiest. Before I worked as a head cashier I was a service desk rep. I know our return policies well, so it’s not uncommon for the cashiers to turn customers my way for specifics. After I have explained, the customer smiles and looks back to the pro associate. “Thank you sir, have a nice day.” And leaves.
… WHAT?? The pro associate and I looked at each other and launched into conversation on how disrespectful the customer was, and how he was definitely sexist.
Another great day at Home Depot. 🥲 I hope all of his plants die and his return gets denied.

2023.06.10 21:59 THDThrowaway19340823 June 2023: Do those of you with years of Home Depot experience feel like Home Depot is legitimately starting to go downhill?

I am wondering if anyone else here is feeling similar to how I am feeling based on recent trends after nearly eight years of Home Depot experience between two stores.
It seems as if Department Supervisors are stretched thinner than ever before, as if the new hiring process (even if well-intentioned) is creating even more issues with call-outs and turnover, and that the wages being offered by Home Depot are not keeping it competitive with other employers (especially when considering the level of stress of many positions within HD). Also, now that the dust has started to settle on the Store Leadership (Re-)Structuring (SLS), it does not seem like it made the stores run any better.
(Before I get replies advising me to find another job if I do not like it, Home Depot is a second, part-time job for me supplementing the income from my full-time career and given that my current wage at HD is above what a lot of competitors offer for starting pay in my area, I am not likely to go elsewhere unless circumstances really force my hand.)
What are the thoughts of some of the other long-term Home Depot employees here?

2023.06.10 21:55 hellholedaytrip My friend is the worst parent I've ever met and I don't know what to do.

So I'm not a parent myself and in all honesty I don't think I should care as much as I do but I'm geniunely concerned at this point and I wanna get some opinions/suggestions on this.
I (m24) have a friend m (23) who we'll call Ricky. Ricky is a single dad to his son Darren. Darren is 3 and Ricky adopted him when he was a couple months old after his mom who was also a friend of ours died. Ricky's nice to him and everything, he's not abusive to him in anyway and his geniunely trying his best considering he's a one man band. However that does not mean he is a good parent. Ricky is EXTREMELY oblivious and ditzy when it comes to parenting and it's getting to the point where it could be considered neglect. Let me list out some highlights of what I mean.
And literally so much more I don't have time to write here. It's hard to translate through text but I'm geniunely disturbed when I see this stuff in action. I'm worried for Darren's future if Ricky doesn't fix his behavior soon. Any input would be great, I never know if I should say something or not. Thanks.

Anybody biking today? I heard yesterday people made it the whole way and the ranger stopped them near the loop on the way down and said the gate should have been closed and issued warning tickets. Also talked to someone who saw bears on the road yesterday. So…. Is it a grizzly pullout? What is that? …. weather seems unlikely as it’s stunningly beautiful today (description). What does this mean?? Riding it tomorrow.

2023.06.10 21:39 ravachol1234 Ukraine’s flood of deserters

It has been well reported that up to 1,000,000 Russians have crossed their borders to avoid the war since the invasion. Much less focus is given to what’s happening for those Ukrainians who don’t want to heed national patriotism or fight.
The BBC reports that Ukrainian military service has been hard to enforce due to reluctance and corruption. Many are paying a monthly sum to avoid being called up. Ukrainian frontline commanders are reportedly complaining that the increasing number of conscripts too scared or unwilling to fight is proving a burden on the battlefield.
Many are risking their lives to cross the Tisa river in the west to seek refuge from combat in Romania. According to the Romanian government, at least 20,000 military aged men eligible for military service have entered the country since the beginning of the war, ostensibly to visit and then simply not return to the Ukraine.
Another 7,000 deserters have crossed the Tisa river despite armed patrols and road blocks, as the only way to save their lives. Ukraine’s police force claim they are detaining at least 20 men a day on the international border – each facing up to 10 years in prison in ‘free’ Ukraine.
Numbers appear to be growing despite the cost of ‘people smugglers’ and the dangers of the journey itself. Ukrainian sources say that at least 90 people have died from exposure, frostbite and drowning. One deserting combat veteran describes how even after reaching the Romanian side of the river, he was spotted by a Ukrainian patrol on the other bank: “I heard shots first, then a string of insults”.
Capitalism’s lust for profit and its consequential wars with rivals, targets our class. They shoot us, starve us, drown us and displace us. Ukraine’s two floods, the Dnipro south and the dissident’s west are mirrored on the Russian side of the front-lines. It is not about freedom or justice, it is about slaughter and greed. These are not war crimes, this is the crime of war.
Desertion is only one form of resistance. Perhaps at the height of the battle, it is the easiest one to take. However, to end the war, this war and the next, all of capitalism’s wars, resistance has to be globalised and militant.
The working class is in the firing line for capitalist greed whatever side of the frontier we are on. That is why we say that the fight to end it begins at home.
Uncompromisingly pursuing our class agenda here against their social peace to undermine their war, there. No war but the class war means exactly that.

2023.06.10 21:36 Hyperion235 Fall of Winterhome Survivor/Extreme. My final challenge.

First off... I now understand why many collectively refer to this scenario at its highest difficulty as "Winterhell". Because it is.
Currently attempting practice runs on Extreme until I can find a winning strategy.
My main strategy is one I have copied from Jwiise's speedrun of Winterhome. Yet it's still a struggle to keep enough people alive until I can raise enough hope.
Laws: Radical Treatment, Overcrowding, Care Houses, (Soup or Sawdust), House of Prayer, Evening Prayers, The Temple and Shrines.
Scouting involves sending the 1st group to grab food and the 2nd group makes their way to grab the 2 groups of Engineers to the West. I also send the Automaton to the city to be put on the Wall Drill.
Tech: Faster Gathering, More Scouts, Flying Hunters, Hunting Tactics, Medical Post Upgrade, Healthcare Insulation 1, gathering post insulation 1.
My 1st day starts off like most attempts: dismantle as many of the redundant roads as I can, staff all available Medical Posts, Cookhouses, and Hunter's Huts, and then try to lower Discontent enough to be able to sign Radical Treatment. Afterwards, I put as many Workers and Children on the ruins within the generator's heating area as possible and put any spare kids on the steel ruins around the southern Coal Thumper. I also build a Wall Drill and a Sawmill in the northern region.
The rest of day 1 has me building new Medical Posts in the northern region, building a few Gathering Posts near ruins, removing any tents left in the cold, and replacing them around the generator.
The next couple of days are more of the same, building more Gathering Posts to cover the ruins as well as a few Resource Depots on Day 2 to avoid filling up on resources and building more medical posts as I get more Engineers
Every time now I have been failing to meet the 50% Hope deadline.

2023.06.10 21:36 True-Position-2594 Need genuine advice before deciding to put my dog down for sleep. Long post !

On 24th April, my dog, a 1.5 years old golden retriever got into an accident. He got loose while I was walking him, started chasing a squirrel in road and got hit by a car. He fractured his front and hind leg on left side.
We took him to vet and they suggested surgery with intramedullary plates. We agreed. Bought him back home after surgery but no improvement.
Took him to vet again and he told us that our dog isn’t able to immobilize (moves a lot) so there’s implant failure. So he performed the surgery again and admitted him. He put him in crate for a month for immobilization. But after a month there was implant failure again.
My dog underwent 3rd surgery where all implants were removed and the cast was put to allow natural healing.
In past 1.5 months my dog has undergone 3 surgeries and 15 anesthesias for wound dressing.
He is unable to sit still no matter how much we restrain him and put him in his crate. So he brakes his cast every other day and we have to realign the bone.
It’s been 1.5 months and there’s zero recovery so far.
We belong to a place where there are no laws for animals or veterinary doctors and no such thing as pet insurance.
After spending a fortune and seeing no results and seeing my dog undergo so much suffering I’m thinking of giving up.
I asked a veterinary doctor from non profit organization and he told me to let my dog go peacefully. But my dogs treating physician is refusing to give up.
Lot of people are telling me that he’s doing so to extract more money and giving me false hope.
2 other senior veterinary doctors have told me to put my dog to sleep.
Few things come to my mind …
1) my dog still eats well. Wags his tail when he sees me. But is unable to even stand. The vets who are in favor of euthanasia are telling me that I’m prolonging his suffering.
2) who am I to decide when he should live or die ? My dog had no say if he wanted surgeries or not and neither will he have a day in matter of euthanasia.
Please advice me what I should do ?
