Messages I have received from my Mom who loves hip hop, but doesn't understand the slang. Now that she has found Urban Dictionary and Rap Genius I am constantly getting messages from her about the true meaning of the lyrics.

2023.06.09 16:45 Raokairo Is every single doctors office backed up beyond their ability to help?

I have a huge problem. I’m in a great amount of pain in my shoulder. I woke up and this intense searing pain just pulsed through it. It’s deep, like a rotator cuff issue I think. It’s not an emergency by any means and I don’t want to burden potential patients with something that isn’t life or death, but I’m in so much pain I can’t concentrate.
I used to use St Luke’s of Blue Valley but they never answer my calls, treat me like a fucking wallet and literally never get back to me even on their stupid app. And now apparently they’ve moved and I never knew that. I’m sick of St Luke’s health system in general. It’s complete garbage that people who need to see a doctor have to wait months to see the doctor they’ve already established a relationship with. What is that?
I called HCA Belton to try to establish with a new doctor, but they’re months out for new patients. Once you get in apparently you can get same day appointments easily but that’s just what the receptionist said. It’s still over a week for me to see a fucking NP.
I don’t know what to do at this point. Urgent care facilities don’t have any resources that don’t send you fifty different places for labs, and the hospitals direct you to small practices that can’t handle the amount of people thrown at them. What do I do? I literally cannot understand what I’m supposed to do in a healthcare system that doesn’t care about my pain.

2023.06.09 16:45 Vivid_Tooth1394 Creating Misogynistic Men?

My PIMI husband (who i am leaving) live and breathe to make jokes about women or say things as bold as "women have it easy" "the Incel community are the way they are because they're treated bad" and my favorite "woman would rather chat with friends then have hobbies".......
AT THIS POINT I CANT tell if its the community we were raised it, social media, or personality. Which I hear things from the platform that are constantly sexist but they always twist it "I know this sounds harsh sisters but this isn't what this means" etc.....
I am a 25 F, (yes, a touch feminist for good fucking reason) a PIMO for the last three years. My husband, who I have deicide to divorce, at least if I'm forced to be a PIMO, I can be on my own rather then have a prejudice, sexist man PIMI breathing down my neck forever.
What do you think? Does the org unintentionally support this behavior? Are men my age a dying breed of just showing respect for struggle or women?

2023.06.09 16:44 _karmakiller_ Seeking Passionate Volunteer Storyboard Artists for Horror Drama Web Series

We are currently seeking dedicated and talented volunteer storyboard artists to contribute to our upcoming horror drama web series, set to premiere on YouTube later this year (estimated release due to change). This unpaid opportunity offers a chance to be part of a captivating hour-length animation project that explores thrilling narratives and pushes creative boundaries.
Project Overview: The series is rooted in early 2000's digital horror roots, but has evolved over many months to develop a narrative more in line with something outside the genre of found footage. Without specific details, it delves into an alternate history with themes of oppression, political ideologies, flawed social expectations, death, disease, religion, and controversial topics handled with the sensitivity and care it needs to deliver a unique heartfelt and inspiring message to audiences. Our target demographic is adults and late teens interested in serious western adult animation projects.
Plot Summary: In the heat of a growing statewide pandemic, a late teenage emo boy assembles a band with his two best friends to distract himself from the harsh reality of his brother being slowly eaten away by the disease. Meanwhile, the boy's father struggles to do the same running for the county sheriff, becoming more and more self destructive with his own anger management issues. As he spirals into a tunnel of greed and ego, the boy will have to look into his broken mirror to truly redeem himself, even if nobody may ever know what it really costs him...
Timeline and Commitment: Storyboard artists will work collaboratively with the team to bring the scenes to life. While we understand that volunteers have other commitments, we expect a reasonable time commitment to ensure steady progress. Specific timelines and deadlines will be discussed during the onboarding process to accommodate everyone's availability. However, we can say now the series debut episode will be split into two parts; each spanning around 30 minutes long for a total runtime of an hour.
Project Vision and Team: Our team is composed of passionate individuals who are deeply committed to creating an immersive and unforgettable web series. Led by a talented writer and director, we are dedicated to realizing our shared vision and are excited to welcome artists who align with our creative goals.
Compensation and Future Opportunities: While this is an unpaid opportunity, we believe in the value of artists' contributions. As the series progresses, there is potential for future paid opportunities, especially if the project becomes monetized on YouTube with the partnership program. We are committed to fairly compensating artists for their work as the project develops.
Token of Appreciation: To express our gratitude for your involvement, we are exploring options for a small token of appreciation. This may include digital gift cards, exclusive access to project-related resources, or other thoughtful gestures to acknowledge your contributions.
Examples and Collaboration: We have already developed several storyboards for parts of the web series. As a potential storyboard artist, you will have the opportunity to collaborate with the initial artist (me), providing your unique artistic perspective while maintaining the overall vision of the project.
To Audition: If you are passionate about horror, possess experience in storyboarding and or comics, and are eager to contribute to our web series, we would love to hear from you! Please send us a message with the following details:
We greatly appreciate your interest in joining our team and look forward to reviewing your submissions. Together, let's create an extraordinary series that captivates audiences and showcases the incredible talents of our collaborators!!
(PS. I understand how this may upset some artists, and I completely understand that. However, I'm currently unable to put any funding towards this series as of now since there is no sources of income available to me yet. All of the work gone into the series has been limited to the resources I have available at hand and generous individuals happy to contribute. I in no way mean to pose this request in a way that undermines the value and importance in artists. I would do the storyboarding entirely on my own, but a team of one person is incredibly stressful, tedious, time consuming, and harmful to my mental health. In the process, I hope to build up the portfolio of any artists who want to make a name for themselves in the industry and do this type of work full time, embracing their potential and showcasing their wonderful skills to employers. Thank you for reading, and I apologize in advance.)

Friday, June 9 — 5 significant news stories
Today ChatGPT read 1066 top news stories and gave 6 of them a significance score over 7.

After removing previously covered events, here is today’s significant news:
[7.7] General Motors adopts Tesla's charging plug standard, joins Supercharger network — Reuters
General Motors (GM) has agreed to adopt Tesla's North American charging plug standard and give GM electric-vehicle buyers access to the Tesla Supercharger network. The move follows a similar decision by Ford, meaning three of the top EV sellers in the North American market have now agreed on a standard for charging hardware. Tesla Superchargers account for about 60% of the total fast chargers in the United States and Canada, according to US Department of Energy data. The alliance among the three leading rival US EV manufacturers has significant commercial and public policy implications.
[7.7] Ukrainian forces launch assault against Russian positions in the south — The Guardian
Ukrainian forces have launched an assault against Russian positions in the south, with tanks, armoured vehicles, infantry and artillery being used in the fighting. The combat, which is taking place south of Zaporizhzhia, includes an attempt to break through in the Orihiv-Tokmak sector, which blocks the route to the Russian-occupied city of Melitopol. The Institute for the Study of War has said that the Ukrainian counteroffensive has begun, while Ukrainian officials have insisted that they would not make an official announcement when the counteroffensive begins and have cautioned against focusing on a single area, suggesting it could involve a number of components.
[7.3] Russian sabotage group accused of blowing up Ukrainian dam, causing mass flooding — Reuters
Ukraine's Security Service (SBU) has released an audio recording of a phone call it claims proves that a Russian "sabotage group" blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric station and dam in southern Ukraine, causing mass flooding and environmental damage. The SBU has opened a criminal investigation into war crimes and "ecocide". Russia has accused Ukraine of destroying the dam, but has not commented on the recording. The SBU said the recording confirms that the dam was blown up by a Russian sabotage group, which wanted to blackmail Ukraine and staged a man-made disaster in the south of the country.
[7.2] Zelenskiy warns of global ecological disaster after Nova Kakhovka dam collapse — The Guardian
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has warned that the ecological disaster caused by the collapse of the Nova Kakhovka dam has become a global problem as contaminated waters flow into the Black Sea. The flood waters have brought sewage, oil, chemicals and possibly anthrax from animal burial sites. Kyiv has accused Russian forces of blowing up the dam and committing ecocide. The disaster has affected 100,000 people downstream, with 50,000 hectares of forests flooded, and 20,000 animals and 10,000 birds under threat of imminent death. The Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant, 125 miles upstream from the dam, is also at risk.
[7.1] The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts intensifying weather patterns over winter — CNBC
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has announced that an El Niño climate pattern, which can cause warmer temperatures and more extreme weather, has arrived and is expected to strengthen over the winter. In the U.S., an El Niño can cause wetter weather in the south and drier conditions in the Pacific Northwest and Ohio Valley, and can potentially lead to a warmer winter in the north. The intensity of the event will influence its impacts. There's an 84% chance for a stronger than moderate El Niño this winter. Global effects may include droughts and fires in Indonesia/Australia and extreme rainfall in eastern South America.

2023.06.09 16:44 Responsible_Pitch207 Last year my (27f) bf (27m) broke up with me and I think I’m not over it even tho we’re back together.

We had been dating a year and a half and he blindsided me with a breakup after just talking to me about moving in together and starting a family. We were broken up for a few months and I know during that time he was seeing someone else. He didn’t cheat on me. I confirmed that when I messaged the other girl and asked her when they met. I started talking to him again during the holidays after his sister invited me over for thanksgiving. At this point him and the other girl had broken up. When we got back together I told him that he needed to remove the other girl from social media and block her number and he didn’t hesitate to do it right in front of me. Since we’ve been back together things have been pretty good. We’re living together and looking in to buying a house. But periodically I still feel insecure about our relationship. I’ll check his social media to make sure he hasn’t added the other girl again, which i never used to check his socials before this. I also occasionally have dreams about him cheating on me or leaving me for the same girl. Last night was the most recent dream that happened and it became very violent. Sometimes I get flashbacks of me going through the breakup, like when i would be crying in my car or crying myself to sleep and it makes me feel sad again.
I just don’t understand why i still think about it when things are going well for us and we are getting more serious about our future together. Has anyone gone through this and how did you manage to let go of the past?

2023.06.09 16:44 Enlargerama Never finishing a project

Hi fellows,
I lurked this sub and other related ones for a long time. I suffered the problem, and also I read a lot of threads, of never being able to finish a project.
This was actually present for me until about half a year ago. Your game was never good enough. What else to add? The customers deserve a better experience, etc.
A few weeks ago, I finally decided that all the features in my game are enough and release my steam page: https://store.steampowered.com/app/2409000/Marine_Glory/
and added a twitter page for promotion:
https://twitter.com/marineglorygame Before I released the page, I had a few private testers and we communicated a bit. After all, I came to the same conclusion after every talk: The details aren't that important.
Example: For my game, I really wanted to add a fishing feature (which I did). And with one side mission, you unlock the fishing ability. But most of my testers didn't even use this ability once and went straight on with the main missions. It was just me who wanted to add the most value to the experience.
So, in conlcusion, I made it a habit to straight up just write down your core mechanics/gameplay and implements them as good as possible. Everything else is filler.

My two cents

2023.06.09 16:44 Ultraman60 Older art trends/challenges, worth it? Or not worth it?

Hey fellow artists,
I've been grappling with a dilemma lately, and I need your input and advice. You see, I've recently stumbled upon some older art challenges like the Jacko Challenge and the Sailor Moon Challenge. They seem like so much fun, and I can't help but feel a pang of regret for missing out on them when they were at the height of their popularity.
Part of me wants to dive headfirst into these challenges, breathing new life into them with my own unique twist. I want to recreate the excitement and passion that surrounded these challenges, even if it's a bit late. But there's another part of me that worries if it's all just a futile effort. Will anyone care? Will my art be lost in the abyss of the internet, overshadowed by newer and trendier challenges?
I know some might say, "Why bother? Move on and focus on the latest trends." Which i did, I mean i recently drew the Barbie challenge and drew this new spider man character, but a part of me can't help but feel a connection to these older challenges. They hold a certain nostalgia, a reminder of a time when art was all about exploration and personal growth. And deep down, I believe there are still others out there who share that sentiment, who appreciate the beauty and creativity of these past challenges.
I suppose I'm seeking reassurance that it's not too late, that my art will find its place even in a world obsessed with the "next big thing." I want to hear from fellow artists who have taken similar paths, who have dared to resurrect older challenges and breathe new life into them. How did it go for you? Did you find an audience who appreciated your art despite the passage of time? Or did it feel like shouting into the void?
Please, share your experiences, opinions, and advice. Help me navigate this creative crossroads and decide whether to embark on these older art challenges. Let's have a conversation and embrace the beauty of art, regardless of its age or popularity.

2023.06.09 16:44 anthonius1 A hornet build.

So I'm pretty new to the game, I've been playing for a month or so. I feel like I've been learning a bit, moving from just simple cargo missions with my freelancer, to running bounties with my hornet.
Now I don't have a ton of in-game money, or time (I'm lucky to play a hour a day or every other day) so I don't want to waste too much time making a useless build. Figured hey, maybe you fine folks could offer some input.
So....I started with a pure ballistic repeater build, which while fun....required me to run to port every other bounty.
So,.I moved to a laser repeateneutron cannon build. Wing mounted panthers and nn-14(?) Neutron cannons for my top gimble and front gimble. I heard they pack a mean close range punch and do extra damage to shields.
That being said, even when I stagger fire, I run out of power very quickly. I'm having a hard time with pvp dog fights. Got into a scuffle with a corsair last night and while I did significant damage, I felt like they were toying with me.
So...I was thinking about a disruptor (front gimble) repeater, ballistic gattling up top and wing mounted ballistic cannons.
I'm running military grade c for shields, PowerPoint, and coolers.
Any input would be great!
Seems okay for small ships, bit

2023.06.09 16:44 thevoidcaptain Pineneedle Geese and the Passers-by

I was driving home from work the other night. Two motorcycles ripped past me like I was standing still. I was doing 80. A couple of miles down the road I saw brake lights. I pulled over to see if I could help. There was a woman standing on the shoulder on her cell phone. I could hear someone cursing at the top of their lungs. The bike was in the pines on fire. One rider laid on his side piled up. His body twisted. His friend was talking to him, I couldn’t hear what was said. I ran up to them. The crotch rocket was ablaze at the base of a tree. I had always heard that you shouldn’t move someone that’s been in an accident because you might injure them further. But the fire was growing. We had no choice. His friend and I lifted him and carried him up he slope to the asphalt. We laid him down and I put his helmet between my knees. He was broken. I could feel that he was broken. When the police arrived an EMT relieved me and I stood on the shoulder watching as they attended to him. After working 60plus hours at the refinery that week I was exhausted. The fire grew and grew and I was no longer helpful so I left. I wrote this poem over the next week or so.
(Pineneedle Geese and the passers-by don’t ask why)
The turnpike shoulder
full of dead geese in spring
brand new Pumas
full speed grease in pines,
the garden state is burning
forward the median
The rain light full on light rail head case
ready set for a Friday night at the shore
toward a meaning
a slipshod living
asbestos siding
whipsaw giving
the best is hiding
O’er rumble strips guided
Our broken bodies lie
Ill costumed for the slide
Dead geese on the shoulder cry
Majic came
To the states in ‘03
Sylvester in ‘04
Big Lu form little Peru came in two thousand and two;
From Poland
From Ghana
From Lima;
From cracked land
From fortunes pilfered
From hidden gems;
The world gave us her donations and we gladly accepted
Let’s all occupy the same space And pretend that we are in control
Lets all utilize similar skills And pretend that we are in control
Purposely poised to be our best selves
Positioned by chance
Propositioned by chance
Equal opportunities presented presently
perfunctory purpose provided
by need
Our tired
Our hungry
Our poor
Majic quit smoking cigarettes when the baby was born but he has been on nicotine lozenges for four years now
Sly is a high school drop out One of the smartest men I’ve ever known
Lu, a compassionate man, a lapis lazuli man, drives his Toyota everyday, back and forth to work It has over 300,000 miles on it.
I clean the bathrooms and I mop the floors
I wipe down the microwave
inside and out
I toss heavy bags full of garbage into reeking dumpsters
I can hear the flies buzzing as I approach
When I lift the lid, the flies burst forth
A fountain of dreams
A cloud of smoke, blue-bottle buzzing
The language of radiation echoing across empty space
An Intermittent flash
As the defunct star from which it emanates rotates
Washing their hands in their own vomit
Burning themselves against the sun
Falling to the land that is mine
The land that is yours
The land that was made for both of us
We ply our trades
Turning with the world
Burning with each other
Burning with envy
Burning with hate
Burning with pity
I put up a small sign that warns of wet floors, so that no one falls, and if they do they can’t sue the company because the sign was there and they chose not to heed its warning
When my wife lost the baby these guys took me out for drinks
I got drunk:
Taking a piss in the alley behind the bar
I looked up
Between the slick brick buildings
The moon echoed in the puddles
The sound of a muffler-less car
I searched for shooting stars
My dick in my hand
But I saw nothing save stationary stars, the ones that are always there
And I cried
Majic called me a cab
Sly paid the fare
Lu buckled me in and tipped the driver
I made it home ok
and went to work the next day
Compromise is a thing meant to pacify you
Understanding is a curse uttered in your sleep
A promise you will keep
Something you’ve given
The vastness of the sky at night is a lie that sounds different than the lie of the sky during the day
Ferrous moments Kept in by the stars
Whilst fishing on the beach a rocket took off from the crypt of Cape Canaveral
the diminishing vapor trail burns lower and lower still Casting its leaden tail upon the face of the earth
Compromise is a lie told to you
by you
you can’t escape the atmosphere
Their ain’t enough fuel in the world

2023.06.09 16:44 HR_Office_Guy 39 [M4F] #Milwaukee #Wisconsin - Turning You Into My Pregnant Traditional Wifey

I (39 m Wisconsin MAGA) have always known I was going to be a father one day. After college that dream turned into something more. This primal, raw, animalistic need to breed. To push deep inside a soaked fertile pussy, flooding her womb with my thick hot white cum. Pumping wave after wave of potent seed inside of her. Filling her. Claiming her as mine. Marking her with my cum. Knowing that in that moment I may very well be changing her life, our lives, forever.
This...need...only seems to get stronger. Most days seem worse than the last. I quickly realized how much it turns me on to hear about how this same need is with my partner. How her hormones are forcing her past the point of craving to be filled and impregnated, it is all she can think about. To feel stretched full, looking into my eyes as I give everything to her. Letting me see her reaction, both of us knowing what it means, as she feels the weight of my body pressing against her. Knowing that I am making sure that every single drop is as deep inside of her as it can be. Where it belongs.
For me, it is so much more than a simple creampie. There is nothing hotter than giving in to that hormonal need, knowing that it will lead to a family. That I would make her my wife, keeping her constantly full, pregnant with one baby after the other...
I want to hear just how badly that need is for you. To be claimed and filled, a pregnant Housewife

2023.06.09 16:44 brobrobrono How much should I have in savings BEFORE starting as a flight attendant?

Hi all, I have just graduated with a bachelor’s degree and my current job doesn’t pay super well. But I am able to save on rent where I live and can easily save half of my paycheck. I have always really wanted to be a flight attendant and since now I have no real commitments (except this job oops) after graduating, I am thinking now or within the next few years I can pursue my dream.
I am expecting my salary to go down (currently 35k), and expenses to go up (moving if relocated, etc.). How much would you suggest I have saved before switching and going into this?

2023.06.09 16:43 EuleStein Ti vs Ni - equally effective?

Since Ti searches for logical consistency in the flow of premises and Ni simply intuits the conclusion based on patterns (?), is Ti always going to outdo Ni in terms of thorough understanding/ solving ANY problem, and Ni always going to be faster than Ti to arrive at conclusions ,i.e. faster problem solving?
I see a struggle in me when I'm doing math. On one hand I have to prepare for an exam, so I try to find an intuitive connection to explain math theorems (hardcore mathematicians, don't be mad, I won't teach that 'incoherent' shit) so as to simplify my notes, but I have a logical conscience so to speak, that 'forces' me to complicate my notes to address leaps in logic. Listening to it makes my notes look frightening. Does this mean I have a high Ti as well?

2023.06.09 16:43 Flimsy-Assumption513 I just realized something, AOT is similar to movies like Black Death than to stuff like GOT. My opinion

So I was recently look at AOT fan art on my phone until I realized something that probably you weren’t aware of. Allot of people had been comparing got and AOT because they both have a similar way of starting and ending things.
But the first time I watched it, I didn’t have any GOT vibes throughout the entire show. But rather it reminded me of something that I just couldn’t put two and two together. It reminded me of something that I watched during quarantine because the first time I watched AOT was during the summer of 2022.
Black Death is a 2010 movie made by Christopher Smith, the actor Sean Bean (also known as boromir) is in this movie and it’s one of the reasons why I watched it and also this is when I was trying to get medieval history because before I hated reading and eventually I would love reading now reading and writing is part my life. Also accurate history yeah I’m a medievalist and one those people who knows right from wrong.
Anyway the reason why I think this movie has a similar vibe is because of the plot and the style. Remember spoilers also if I miss anything or said something wrong just know that I haven’t watched this movie in a long time.
the main character is a monk named Osmund who broke the rules of falling in love with a women. One day a group of Christian soldiers come asking for a monk who can guide them to this village.
The soldiers and the people have suspicions of this village which is the reason why these knights are here to investigate. Osmund states that he knows or has heard of this village so they choose him.
Throughout their dark adventure of fighting bandits and talking about stereotypical medieval things, and killing one character who was infected but never told anyone about it. They eventually make it to the village, the thing is that the village looks all peaceful but Sean bean states that everyone here is evil no matter how nice they are to us.
This statement eventually becomes true when osmund finds the beautiful girls doing some kind of black magic and then getting imprisoned by the villagers. Once they wake up the nice and friendly villagers are know the enemy.
Your stuck inside this cage thing and everyone is looking at you with hatred. The villagers then start to execute allot of the characters including Sean bean. Osmund is told by the witch to go to the small looking house thing.
Traumatized he finds his girl friend dead covered in blood. This is when that one guy with the black hair and beard escapes killing all the villagers. The witch manages to escape and then the bald guy who states that they see this women as a god. The guy with black hair kills him stating something about god has abandoned you.

2023.06.09 16:43 EasyBend How do I get up earlier? [Advice]

I am a pretty motivated guy in my late twenties. However, if there was one thing I could change about myself is that I'd get up early and be able to do exercise at the start of the day - like run a 5k.
I'm currently lack a specific time to wake up meaning Im waking up around 10:30am and going to sleep at around 2:30am. I find myself productive in the evenings but I want to also be productive in the mornings so I can alter my routine a little. I often find myself tinkering with hobby projects until the early hours having started them at 7:30pm.
Additionally, I recognise that one key element of getting up early is going to bed early. So say I wanted to wake up at 8am, I go to bed at midnight. What then happens is I accidentally browse TikTok or Reddit for an hour or two because I have no motivation to sleep with the "Just one more video" mantra OR I do go to sleep but when the alarm goes off in the morning I turn it off because my "sleep" brain tells me to get more sleep. I know I could delete the apps but I do still want to browse them on my downtime. I know I could move my alarm to across the room but when I've tried this previously I just get up turn it off and go back to sleep with my sleepy brain. I am honestly not functional in the mornings its like Im a different person with different goals.
Anyone experienced similar stuff and know how to fix it?

2023.06.09 16:43 twasbutamacrolide How much instep break-in can I expect?

Just got my second pair of boots, went for tecovas jason this time with goal of wearing them for long hospital shifts.
With these, the entire fit is quite snug and comfortable, however after a few hours of wear as my feet swole, the instep became incredibly tight and moderately uncomfortable/painful. This never happened with my previous pair of goat skin boots, however they are a half size larger and stretched too much, requiring 2 socks/insole to be worn with them now.
I’m not excited about returning them because the next half size up felt rather loose, so my question is, how much can I expect the instep to break in or loosen up, or is an exchange necessary?
Thanks y’all.

2023.06.09 16:43 CFAjd Lonely wedding guest?

To my wedding, I invited half a dozen friends from work plus their guests. All but one of them declined and he isn't bringing a guest. I'm concerned he won't have a good time amongst my and my fiancees families. Should I warn him ahead of time? I will definitely try to introduce him to some people, but I will have other guests, so I won't be able to spend a lot of time with him. What do you suggest?
Following the ceremony we are having a cocktail hour, buffet sit-where-you-like dinner, and dancing.

Me and my partner are from different countries. We want to move together by the next year. One of our goal is to start a family. We haven't decided yet who will the one moving abroad to reach the other one but there are many chances it will be me. In any case our future child will grow up two and half hours flight away from one branch of his extended family. And even if it's still a manageable distance it scares me because I have a wonderful relationship with my mum and my sister is basically my best friend. I want that my future children would love them too and could count on them. I am worried cause I have an aunt and a cousin living just few car hours away but I barely know them (probably I wouldn't even recognise my cousin if I would meet him). I am terrified something similar could happen especially because probably we could see each other just few times every year. So I was wondering what's your experience with far away close relatives. How did you make it work?

I work in the business of overnight car parts delivery. The state of Wisconsin employers are exempt from paying driver's time and a half for overtime. Before we started our routes every night we had to sort out 3 semi loads of parts in the warehouse for 2-3 before scanning and loading our trucks before we do our routes.
There are employees that work in the the warehouse full time helping drivers sort parts and load trucks. When they are not sorting parts they sorting mail that is delivered on semi and from large hubs to our warehouse to be delivered to local post offices during the day. These warehouse works receive time and a half for their overtime because the employer is legally required to do so sometimes making more money than drivers.
There is roughly an average of 10 hours a week minimum that driver's sort parts in the warehouse before they do their route. Wouldn't the driver's also be considered warehouse workers also? This is more than simply loading and scanning parcels for leaving.
Is what this company doing legal? Would this company have to possibly pay workers back for this? Is it worth it for me to file a claim with a government agency? If so which agency?
Company is very unprofessional and have been in trouble for similar things. I work for a different company now that pays salary and does not require b Me to sort before my route.

2023.06.09 16:42 NeoAhhh I think i found a game about art that has lore

(they deleted my post from gaming so im posting it here)
The name is different strokes and its about art(like i said) and its weird sometimes.
if you go play it(recomend it) you might not think nothing at first and think im crazy but there are ghost you can talk to in the game and one ghost says something like "i got scared to death and ended up here",does it mean the gallery of the game is actually heaven or some sort of after life?
also another ghost dialog comfirms its saying "you wanna see what under the sheet? nothing silly im a ghost" or something like that,it might mean some sort of lore or im just crazy idk
it might also mean that the staff of the gallery are some sort of angel,since they are the only characters that arent ghosts,the player might be a ghost if thats the case or someone that has ascended from earth to after life
last thing i want to say is that the game is good i recomend you to play it if you like drawing (link to the steam page:https://store.steampowered.com/app/2102020/Different_Strokes/ and itch.io if you dont want to dowload it:https://swsteffes.itch.io/different-strokes)
anyways goodbye and have fun

2023.06.09 16:42 Melodic_Cantaloupe88 Im starting to get nervous on my high sat fat diet, but still believe in it

The past 2 months I have only used animal fats (ghee/tallow for eggs) in cooking and nearly daily have been having some cheese. I would be in keto but this time of year I enjoy fresh fruits like watermelon and mangoes too much. But this winter will probably do keto for sure.
My daily food is normally like this: Breakfast is 3-4 eggs in tallow or butter. Or just 5oz of high quality cheese like real parm or gruyere.
Lunch/dinner ( I only eat from 6-11:30) is normally some sort of protein like a half pound or more of lamb/beef/salmon. This is always eaten with pineapple/mango/watermelon lately.
I know I probably shouldnt do the fruits but like I said this time of year I like them too much. I also do zero grain aside from homemade mac and cheese or spaghetti once a week. But I use only a handful of the pasta. I dont do any other form of grain.
I have felt excellent off seed oils and even olive oil. Months ago I had very low saturated fat and felt like crap. I ate a lot of peanut buttealmonds and a lot of dried fruit, usually a pot of oats or rice a day too. In hindsight im fortunate to not have gotten obese. I could never imagine that diet again. The thought turns my stomach.
I should also say cheese used to constipate me, but since dropping grains and pufa/mufa fats I have had no digestive issues aside from what might be slight delayed stomach emptying due to the high fat currently.
However ive been reading some stuff, its hard to tell if its just the old 20th century propaganda of sat fats but with my diet not being fully keto im nervous my ldl is soaring and im slowly setting in arterial plaque and heart disease from all the cheese and fatty beef ive been eating. I know whithout a blood test nobody here can help me but im just wanting some insight from those more experienced.
Am I on a dangerous road or what? And thanks for reading.

2023.06.09 16:42 Auto_Fac Question about Chant & Intonation

Hey all,
I made a post a few days ago about my going on retreat at a Russian Orthodox monastery nearby. It was a deeply moving few days and left me much to think about and I had many questions the monks were happy to suffer and answer!
I am very liturgically curious and so I've found a lot of resources on the OCA website about music and the various liturgies, but one thing I haven't found an answer to or notation for is the intonation of certain parts of Matins, Vespers, and the Divine Liturgy.
I am from a Western context and very familiar with the chanted divine offices in our tradition but much less so with Eastern liturgy. I noticed that there are many parts of Vespers, for example, that are chanted and obviously have particular tones attached to them depending on days of week, season of church year, and whether it's a festal day, and I think I've found the music for that.
But is there a general rule for the intonation of things like psalms, prayers and litanies? I tried to track what the monks were doing during the liturgies to discern a pattern, but couldn't really figure it out definitively. It seems like you go down a half-tone or something at the beginning of the sentence and again at the end, but then they seemed to do it in the middle of sentences as well?
For example, at Vespers:
↓Bles↑sed is our God always, ↓now ↑ and ever and unto ↓ages ↑of ages.
So "Bles" is a half-tone or so down from "sed"; sed through always is the same note, then down for now and immediately up again to and.
In the west I would call this simply intonation and not chant, but I am wondering if there is a general rule to follow or document that might explain how it's done with prose.
Thank you!

2023.06.09 16:41 VeryLopsidedlmao Clash Royale Trophy Road Is Less Fun Now

So recently i got Clash Royale again. Legitimately the only game on my phone i play consistently. Of all the things that were different from the last time i played 14 months ago, i got to say Trophy Road isn't as fun. You get like 4 cards for getting to every arena (except the ones nearer to the end) and everything i want to use is literally stuffed into the last few arena's like the legendaries, the epics, and some cards i really want to use. Also might just be me but it also seems like the Trophy Road got harder as well so i spend a few hours getting to the next arena for a bunch of mid cards. I swear last time i started Clash Royale i got to the last arena in like 4 days back when there was only 12, i should have enjoyed that time more : (
TL:DR There's not a lot of cards throughout the first half of trophy road and everything i want is neaat the end
