2023.06.10 23:11 Goldengirl1977 How soon after did people start calling! offering to help, etc.?

How soon after your family member passed away did people start calling or offering to help?
My dad passed away 6 days ago (last Sunday morning) and we did not immediately start calling people to let them know. He was a very private person and my brother, sister and I just wanted to make sure we had had a chance to talk and do things the way our dad would have wanted.
We each divided up a list of friends, family and a couple of my dad's colleagues to call, most of whom live in our city. I called my cousin and an aunt and uncle on my mom's side that evening and the rest the following day. My brother and sister also called the folks on their list within the next couple of days and my brother told some of his friends. Knowing how people talk, word would have gotten around by now, I would think. A small notice went in yesterday's paper and a larger tribute will be printed in the Sunday paper tomorrow.
So far, we each have received a note from our aunt and uncle who live out of state, and they sent a bouquet of flowers to my dad's house where I also live. We also received a card from my godparents and a friend of my dad's, all of whom live out of state. Other than that, no calls, flowers, offers to bring food or what-have-you.
I'm not sure what to think or if I am expecting too much. On the one hand, none of us really feels like chatting with anyone right now, but on the other, just having someone offer to do something for us or help in some way would be nice. It would be nice to know that people cared about my dad and us.
What has your experience been with people offering to help? Did it happen right away or after a few days? I feel so lost and alone right now and I don't know if it would help or not, but it would be nice if more people reached out.

2023.06.10 23:10 Rubbish_69 My third dive into this hedge which I 'adopted' last year

My third dive into this hedge which I 'adopted' last year
Several passersby stopped to express horror that this short hedge hid so much crap. When I told them this was less than my 2 previous goes and that there's still more in there, they were speechless. Curiously, most of the people who stopped to comment were tourists.
I halted ferreting around after 30-minutes as the narrow pavement was becoming too crowded with pedestrians by the busy road crossing 10.30am on a Saturday, and I could have caused a hazard.
I purposefully chose this sunny Saturday morning rather than a sleepy Sunday, to visually maximise the littering problem to as many people as possible. I wore elegant clothes I would go out for lunch in and didn't wear a hi-vis, to show I'm an ordinary person. Then because this short session wasn't enough of a LP workout I litterpicked the main road and 2 car parks on the common.

2023.06.10 22:58 RottenBanana207 Yosemite this weekend or Big Sur? cuz weather

Flying into San Francisco Sunday morning 6/11. Was originally planning to go to Yosemite Sun-Tues but the weather looks bad. Wanted to hike to upper Yosemite Falls Monday as the one big hike for the trip. Even half way up to the bottom of the upper falls would satisfy me. Alternative idea is the Cali coastline, Big Sur, etc. which has good weather the whole time and I've never been. I've been to Yosemite once and it won't be the only opportunity to go again in the near future. WHAT TO DO?!

2023.06.10 22:52 i_donotKILL I played the Elevator Game and ended up in a world I cannot return back from. Please do not play this game unless you want a similar fate.

I am writing this in hopes for some help and to guide others to not have the same fate as me. I think I have made the biggest mistake of my life. It has been 5 months since it happened and I haven't been able to fix it. This phone is the only connection to the realm of my birth. My original world. I probably cannot undo my mistake but I can guide future players.
My phone it's Android. It has an IR blaster, the only reason I bought it, and for some reason, this phone can hold its network through dimensional change. As if it's a loophole, a glitch in the broken matrix that i was facing. Not that i could actually make any use of it because I am still here.
The people here look like us. They all do. They are very sapient. They look just like us. But my bones know that they don't have the same origin as I do. They are good though. Have the same societal issues, the same intolerable governing body, protestors, and unrealistic agendas, the left wing and right wing at each other's throats. People who should touch some grass have podcasts. People who should have podcasts enjoy their lives. They are humans, just like us, but they are not us.
The rules stated by the urban legend still strike the same to this day if time and space follow the same routine, follow the floor number pattern, pay no heed to the lady that enters the elevator on the 5th floor, leave the building immediately if you return to floor 1, etc. I followed them all correctly, but the rules are no guarantee as to whether you will be safe or alive after your elevator journey is done, the rules only make sure the procedure is correct.
Hey you know what I will write down the rules in short, for your reference to my guidelines but the rules should always be memorized to your bones and spine, this is your SOS and your key. You will find the set of rules on any website. I suggest visiting multiple of them before you start your endeavor. Because each of them gives you different kinds of warnings, something the successful players learned from their own experience. And take this advice of reading through all of those points from this unsuccessful player.
One thing the rules on blog sites don't mention is the choice of which world you want to enter. Because most players enter an identical world with no electronics and no living thing around them. Only a red crossed window that's far stretched away from where ever you look and keeps on moving further away from you. My case was vaguely different.
  1. So firstly all you do is enter a building with more than 10 stories.
  2. Enter the lift via the first floor and only by pressing the "up" button
  3. Follow a pattern of floors, press 4 then 2 then 6 then 10 then 5.
  4. On 5 a lady shall or shall not enter your floor. Then press 1
  5. When you press 1, you will either reach 1. or you will reach 10.
  6. If you reach 1, get the f out of the building and don't come near it, not in 6-7 months i suggest.
  7. If you do reach 10 congratulations. your first part of the journey is a success
now Something, about the lady. Do not interact with her at any cost because of course she is not a lady, no matter how pretty she looks, oh you looked at her? alas, that's also a grave mistake. don't look at her, don't talk to her. Just ignore her total existence. If you know of the elevator game you are already aware of how you should not interact with the lady and all. But one thing is often left blurry is that what you should do if she does not enter. This was my case.
So my advice here: If the lady on the 5th floor does not enter. Then just hope that you do return to the 1st floor after you press it. if you do no then, and start ascending. continuously press any and every floor button for it to stop, or maybe the emergency or call button so that the staff can stop the elevator. Because if you end up reaching the 10th floor, good chances are you get to meet me and we make a cute therapy consult group for people who can't return back. :)
I remember everything from that night so vividly. I did your usual pattern follow. I entered the lift when no one was using it. I entered 4. went up there, meh nothing happened. Then again I pressed 2. I felt a vague chill around me. As if the mechanism of the ritual was understanding my intention. I pressed 6, then after it reached 6, I pressed 2, then 10 then 5. Oh, 5. The elevator door opened. And there she was, standing with all her glory. I did not look at her. but of course, i could see her from waist to bottom. She was dressed in Russian traditional clothing. not something i was expecting from an urban legend that became popular in Korea and japan. I think her wardrobe is a good collection from all cultures. or maybe there's more like her? Who knows?
I could feel it in my spine she was looking at me. She stopped the elevator with her foot so that the doors don't close and asked, "Baby which floor are you going?"
I followed the rules, did not look at her, did not reply to her, and completely ignored her.
She said, "Not much of a speaker eh? no worries have your ride. I hope you have a better life."
I have no idea why she said that. Looking back I think she knew what was going to happen to me. She knew that I was not going to end up in the world most player venture into. "Better life," she said.
She did not enter the lift and I pressed 1. The ritual, now tainted because she did not enter, worked. I reached the 10th floor. And when the doors opened, it was like nothing changed. The building I entered was a hotel. The housekeeping staff was running around. I heard children crying. Some Karen was screaming at a worker because her coffee, which she made from their amenities tasted bland. It was very confusing for me. I think I assumed the ritual did not work. And the lady was just another lady who could have been high. I walked out of the elevator and I felt great.
"those silly online urban legends, such lies" I probably had muttered to myself.
I took the lift again, reached the ground floor, and walked out of the building. Everything was going well until my head started hurting and spinning. and i was slowly passing out. and that's the exact moment i remembered from one of the posts of an earlier player "Do not at any chance lose your consciousness. and if you do, no matter where you wake up, return to the building, re-follow the exit ritual pattern and return to your own world."
My head felt dizzy as I woke up. In my very room. I thought to myself, was it all a dream? Did I search so much about some damn urban legend that I had such a deeply engraving dream? For heaven's sake. I jerked myself up and got down from my bed. Even my clothing is same as the last evening. I didn't know what was more weird, that i was wearing the clothes from my dream or that i remember the dream so vividly that i can even recall the outfit i was wearing. Also my phone was in my pocket. This is something i just never do. No matter how sleepy i am. i keep my phone on the other end of my table, in case it might just blast if the lithium goes through a thermal runaway.
AND! That is when i noticed. My table. It was completely on the opposite side. No no, it is right beside my bed, just like every day but the bed, and the entire room, its opposite. As if it were mirroring the room i know. Also, It wasn't just a complete mirror. my room was smaller, just a bit in breadth. One wouldn't notice it even if they visit my room on a weekly basis. But it's my damn room of course i would know even if a fly moved differently. Lo and behold, that extra loss on my room, was added to my washroom. Again, one wouldn't just notice it right away.
In a nightmare-like urgency, I rushed down the stairs to call complain my mother, and that is when the realization hit me that I did, in fact, play the elevator game. My dad was there. In the kitchen. Alive and happily married. Figuratively much different from how I remember him. I stood there in shock with my mouth wide open. How could this be? I remember my father. The last time I lived with him was until I was 9. When my parents parted ways. The last time I saw him was when I was 11, when he died. Not that I cried, he was far from what a father is supposed to be. I am 25 now.
"Good morning Sweetie!" His voice sounded oddly different. I was utterly petrified by this moment. There was a quirky yet calming nature to his sound which creeped me out even more. I dashed out of the house while grabbing my backpack from the sofa. I could hear him call out my name in my concern. This is it. This is definitely it. I crossed the borders of the unknown realm. But why are people here? Isn't it supposed to be dark with no one in it? No electricity and all ? But there is everything. This is a whole other world, what went wrong?
I had to return to my world. I ran through the roads and traffic to the hotel. Hotel Sunset. As I crossed the roads I could see it all. Cars stopping at the orange light. People walking in blue. I mean they are still following basic physics by using orange, longer wavelength for stopping cars. but does Red not exist in this world? not it does, OH MY GOD, the road lines are red.
I hurried through the crowd to reach the hotel. I pulled out my phone, which was surprisingly working perfectly. Internet, gps everything. It said i reached my location. "Hotel sunset"
I looked up, it said "Hotel Moon shine". I am surprised it wasn't named "moon rise", it'd would have been the cherry on top then.
I walked in, the Interior looked the same. I waited and waited and waited for the evening to hit and the horde to lessen. I stood up and walked to the lift. I repeated the entire process.
The lift stopped at 5. Instead of the lady, someone else entered. I of course didn't look up, but they entered hurriedly, screaming my name and i had to look up, i was already freaked out at this point. It was me. I was looking at me. she, well me, or wait she? she held the lift by her foot. What's up with women in the elevator game to hold the elevator by the foot?
"what did you do!? " I - I mean she said, one that looked like me.
"what did i do?" i replied back. . Whoever this doppelganger was. sure i was petrified. but here i was.
"DID THE LADY ENTER YOUR LIFT ?" she screamed at me.
"wha?" i was trembling at her screeching was. the white portion of her eyes started to redden.
"she didn't." i replied and slowly lost my leg strength and somewhat collapsed while sitting down.
"why? why did you complete the ritual then? did you not read before you did? you are supposed to be me, you are supposed to be smart. heck, aren't you supposed to be smarter? oh my god. is that my backpack or yours?"
I just shook my head and handed her the backpack, it was hers definitely. I never put on any anime pins on mine. Speaking of anime pins, naruto here has pink hair. Isn't that cool?
she took out her phone and said "If you want to go back home go to this tumblr account and download the app. The account is called "
And she left.
Was that the me of this universe? do we have counterparts in every universe? How many universes are there? are these even universes the way our science teaches us universes?
The lift started to quake. the light started flickering and I could hear some noise. soft noises that slowly grew louder and louder until they became uncontrollable screams. my ear drums were hurting beyond control. until it all stopped and the lift door opened. I stepped outside. Yet I was still there at "Moon shine hotel".
I tried the ritual again. I ended up back here. To floor 1 and I went back "home" to my "dad" and "mom". For the next 7 days, I kept on going back to the elevator, trying the ritual continuously and failing. On my way, I noticed new and new things about their world. These people like to greet each other in a very weird way. They grab each other's throats and smile. Almost sadistic. Language is very similar, but there are a few words and phrases here and there that have changed with customs and traditions. Honey here tastes like metal. Cows don't Moo, and birds chirp, but the sounds are unfamiliar, dogs don't exist. cats are the only domestic animals here. I read similar things in some blogs, but never did I think I would get to experience them for real.
Either way. On every failed ritual, I reached floor 1 and went back home. and repeated the cycle Until the 7th day, I got so fed up, that I kept on trying multiple times. but all I did was end up on floor 1. But I saw the weirdest thing.
Well, I can fill in on what happens if you immediately don't leave the building after playing the elevator game and ending up on floor 1. You see, well better than seeing failing grades or not being able to return to your own world, ghosts. Yep pretty much. Deranged souls that roam around the building. That is exactly what you see. And once they notice your existence, god save you. If there is any.
Mine was rather sarcastic. They did infact noticed me. They all came running towards me, looked right at me, smelled me and then slowly moved away and kept on about roaming. My heart intensified so much, it felt like I just lost a marathon I almost won.
I saw a man, maybe a bit older than me, in his 20s, walk down the entrance come and sit beside me. "They won't attack someone who's like them. You are of no use to them. They used to belong here, but don't anymore. and you never did."
I looked at him with a frightening shock. I took my bag and ran back home. Only when i came back home i realized he could have had answers. But i was so terrified at the moment, the only thing I could think of was getting away from him. I needed answers. I need to enter the website the other me mentioned. I got a new phone from this world. they didn't have Google, but I tell you their search engine is much better, it has AI integrated within. The account never opened from the new phone. Tumblr did. but that account never did. Then I tried my own phone and voila! The page had nothing. A heading, a two-liner bio, and a link. Link to download the app. Tumblr happens to be one of the only few apps that do work in other dimensions. Apparently, it has something to do with the first person who jumped dimensions, not only did they jump, but they also jumped through time and made sure every world had Tumblr. It's kinda funny they could have chosen Reddit, it's much more effective.
I loaded the app. Its a 2010's forum-based app. There are discussion topics under which you make threads. You got a chat box to interact with other users. the main discussion had a guide. I searched through it and finally came to the part "how to enter and leave a mirror world" aaand its blank. well not totally. A couple of reasons saying why you should not enter it. A bullet point that said download this pdf to know how to return back to your own world. I hurriedly clicked on it and boom the file did not open. I have never been so disappointed in my life.
There are so many dimensions else than the one with red cross and mirror dimensions. it is almost like aliens exist because some "humans" look so different. some people probably might even have ended up on my world as well. I wonder how they are taking it.
Apparently, only devices of one world present in another world, or at least have been in a few can open the website and run the apk file. Only androids work across dimensions. There's a conspiracy theory that the creators of android have got something to do with the entire interdimensional rituals and breaking the laws of space and time.
Either way, hoping to get some results I posted on the site wishing for some advice on opening the file or someone just copy-pasting the rules I guess.
I received a DM saying, "Since you have successfully crossed a mirror dimension You are capable of much more than you can imagine. But you should know how to use them, you have to be responsible for every move you make"
Good lord, I am not Spider-Man. The user further said, " I do not know where you are from, but I am from dimension 17391, go to the universal map translator and put the location, "Kairo office main building, st. red 22209". It will automatically give you a few building locations of your world." But the interface is very slow. Because it's not a singular place that has a counterpart in every dimension, there is one in every 4 hours of journey. It's an arbitrary location. It will take some time. maybe days. But you will reach."
I asked the user a dozen questions, how do I find the translator map, how many universes are there, and what do I do when I reach there? Why does everyone speak English? But they never replied. But now I have something, hope. A twinge of hope.
I searched around the app and found the map feature, build within the forum. It was on the top layer, but a confused me couldn't find it right away.
Ever since I found the map It has been nothing but a dilemma. 5 months. 5 months of intense searching and nothing. The first time I entered the location and searched, it landed me at the coordinates of a graveyard. The Irony. The second time, a fish market, the third, 3-storey guest house with the most normal Karen.
I can't even venture out every day. I have a "life" here that I have to maintain. This me had a similar job. Marketing manager at a pretty good company. The pay is almost the same. A bit lower here, but hey cost of living is also lower here. Putting those two together I probably have the exact same pay. But they have more facilities. Better vacation leaves. That is exactly what i took right after i downloaded the app, to understand the world better, and the changes here and there.
Morning, I go to work. where I sort out the place I will visit. and after work, i leave. Some places were nearby, some were far. One was in the neighboring country, luckily, the passport here is strong. But none of them work. I think I have broken the "not your universe? not the place? click again" button. Sundays and Saturdays are for long-distance locations. Also every day i cannot afford to go, even though the pay is good. In my world I used to live alone with Mum visiting me now and then. She and I had a family business along with my job, so all was good. Here I don't have a place of my own. And I gotta pay the bills around the house and sometimes take care of the business as well. Things are so similar yet different. I feel likeIi live in a deja vu.
By now i have crossed out almost 75 locations within 5 months, all of them being complete failures. I have crossed out 60 universes that aren't this one. I have made multiple posts on that app, describing my condition, where i am, and which universe it might be. If i even know this universe number and input it, the map translator will work much much better. I describe my original universe in the posts expecting someone to understand me and maybe send me a picture of my mother and friends, but all i have received are words of sympathy and hopefulness.
A few more people have send me their "kairo" addresses but they all can send only one to two messages before the chatbox stops. One of them managed to message me that i have to enter my universe number in the settings for the interface to work better. I also haven't been able to find the man from the hotel on the app or at the hotel either.
what do I do? Any piece of advice?

2023.06.10 22:40 Bic44 A place for the rest of us to race! Casual, friendly racing in a relaxed atmosphere with lots of events

I started this little Sunday morning racing club with 3 or 4 of us a few months ago on GTPlanet. A few weeks ago, I started a discord and it's grown to 73 members quite quickly. The premise was and still is simple - slower cars, generally smaller tracks, but with some full race experiences complete with pit stops, tire and fuel wear. Not something easy for those of us....less experience. We call it OWS (Old, Weird and Slow). We favor those cars that aren't often used. No Gr cars here, and no race cars except the occasional historic one.
We have events that suit a lot of different people -
Time trials - we have 'peasant in a reasonably priced car', based on Top Gear's segment. Drive a bone stock car around a small track and compare times with discord friends. And we have another time trial for those of you who like to tune!
More content coming soon! We have a Kart racing series in the works, and often a room will be started if you just want to race. We're slowly building and having a blast doing it! Here's the discord link, come join us!

2023.06.10 22:37 Same_Ad5014 Is this girl (20f) trying to exlcude me (20f)?

Basically, I fell out with this girl when I she told me the wrong date and location for a group hangout purposefully. She made a groupchat without me for this and told people I didn't want to come when people asked why I wasn't in the groupchat without telling me the fact that date had change to a date she knew I could make. She seemed to know that this annoyed me since she had told some guy she made the group chat to avoid when previously things have been on the bigger groupchat and this was the first time a chat had been made. The guy said this was reasonable but along with her choosing not to tell me the date changes when I had asked her and instead snapping made me think she was being malicious.
The reason for this is probably that she kept being very snappy and expecting me to go along with it and putting her feelings before my own because she was very stressed - the stress being that a guy confessed his feelings to her despite having a girlfriend but said he didn't want a reltionship. I try to be accomodating but I was going through my own stuff in my home and health and realised she was kind being entitled. Also, she probably doesn't realise it but when she gets stressy she starts yelling. I think when I told her that her comment was probably what offended someone (it was about someone's grandfather) she started yelling at me saying I couldn't say that because she was so stressed and that I had to take the blame with her. I said that I didn't want to do that and that especially at uni, everyone had their own issues. I told her I was going to my room. She said 'do you want to talk about this' but obviously she has this habit with yelling when stressed and also always thinking she's right (apparentlu it weird to floss in the bathroom because according to her it is wrong? also it's weird to eat cheese string by peeling the string? small things like this she is pretty serious about).
I told her I would rather not and went to my room to avoid getting yelled at. I told her I wasn't coming to the party and she was like okay but I added straight afterwrads the only reason I wsn't coming is because I couldn't make the Saturday since I as coming back Sunday morning so she didn't think it was because of her. It's funny because I made a point to say this too which felt weird at the time. She shrugged her shoulders and then straight aftewrards she seems to have made a groupchat. Two days later, I asked her for the timing and details of a hangout which we jointly organised but there seemed to be no talk of to see that if it was late at night I could try and return late Saturday. She kinda just snpped wat me saying 'why aee you asking this' which made me stop because I didn't want to deal with this especially when someone was starting a speech. I assumed there were no changed but that night, I found the silence of the groupchat weird and asked a friend and learnt she made a groupchat without me for this and told people I didn't want to come when people asked why I wasn't in the groupchat without telling me. I thoguht this was somehwat reasonable since I couldn't make the date but apparently it was switched back to Sunday evening - which she knew I could attend from prior conversations. I thought this was silly because I would obviosuly know if something was happening in her room since we're neighbours but she has specifically requested someone else's room.
She seemed to know that this annoyed me since she had told the guy who confessed to her she made the group chat to avoid when previously things have been on the bigger groupchat and this was the first time a chat had been made. The guy said this was reasonable but along with her choosing not to tell me the date changes when I had asked her and instead snapping made me think she was being malicious. Throughout her whole chat he seemed to be mking excuses for her such s she probably dissocited whilst doing this.
After that she kept making new groupchats for many more things which I have been excluded from for the most random events instead of using the larger groupcht. This means we are not often kept up in the loop of things for plans and timings until we learn of the groupchat and someone else tells her to dd us since that girl makes herself the only admin. If it wasn't for another girl I would hve constantly arrived at different times. My friend was joking about how she's trying to make this an exclusive group.
Now, this has been going on for a few months. Two days ago, I met up with the girl who has been nice enough to inform me when she makes new groupchats. She told me towards the end of the trip that this girl has asked to have dinner with her and was planning to meet up with everyone in the group one by one - so the other 6 in the group and likely not me. Logically, this should be no problem because this is better than a group hangout without just me but at the same time this is weird because it feels like another way to isolate me especially since she is meeting with the people she isn't even that close with. For example, the girl who she was to have dinner with barely talks to her.
So what are your thoughts? I would try to see what her problem is but obviously I don't want a one to one meet up with her and am not entitled to one either. Nothing she does is illegal and she seems to convince people that this is reasonable but her whole behaviour seems to have an unusual intent.

2023.06.10 22:31 jjudedess New on site . Perused and then told found another girl .

I just joined a online dating site this past Thursday and was matched with a guy that I thought had potential. We exchanged a couple of lighthearted texts over our personal phone numbers because the site kept glitching on me. On Thursday afternoon he texted offering to meet me tomorrow, Sunday for a bite to eat. I declined because I have to be on call for work and couldn’t really make a firm plan. Yesterday I texted him a quick hello and he texted back that he was thinking of me. I was about to text me as well just to say hi. I texted him this morning saying that my schedule is freed up and I could still meet him on Sunday if he chose to. He texted me back saying that he found a girl and wants to pursue things with her. It seemed odd and awfully quick, unless he may have gone out with that person last night, but he was supposedly out of state on a camping trip and on his way back into town over the last couple of days. It just seemed like a baffling type of situation. I’m not upset at all about it. It just was really weird to go from. Let’s get together to. I found a girl in less than 24 hours. It’s something like this the norm I’m fairly new to this online stuff.

2023.06.10 22:25 MoralityOrCarrot Help with intrusive neighbour

I live with my wife in a block of around 15 flats in Kreuzberg and have been living here around 5 years. Around about 2 months ago when I was home by myself, one of my neighbours (65 y/o German woman) who I hadn't spoken to before rang on our bell and asked if she could come in for a coffee. I was a bit thrown-off as none of our neighbours had talked much to us before that, but invited her in and had a coffee with her, no more than 30 minutes total. It was a bit of an awkward chat due to language difficulties, but I didn't think anything more of it and didn't expect her to be back due to the awkwardness of the encounter.
Dear readers - This. Was. A. Mistake. Since this time, she rings at our door dozens of times a week, and when I say rings, I mean that she will stand at our door with the bell pressed down for several minutes at a time and starts banging on the door. She does this throughout the week, but most commonly on the weekend, especially early in the morning. Over the last weeks, she has stood there, ringing our doorbell as early as 5.30am on a Sunday, regularly waking us up. If we answer the door she asks to come in for a coffee, or use our toilet or any other excuse to come into the flat. I have to physically block her from forcing her way into the flat and tell her no. She continues doing this, even after I have asked her to stop ringing the bell and to leave us alone.
Here's the kicker - it's not just us she's doing it to. The bells in our block of flats are extremely loud and we can hear her doing the exact same thing to the rest of our neighbours in the block. She walks door to door for hours, holding down the bells of each door in the flats one by one, including some flats which have small babies and toddlers. Today we were listening to several neighbours shouting at her, before she moves onto the next door and repeats. Everyone is extremely stressed and annoyed and I'm sure some of the vulnerable people in our block are feeling intimidated. The sound of the bells in our flat is even beginning to give me anxiety.
Here's my question - what can I do about this? I wrote to our landlord agency who looks after the whole block of flats and they advised us to call the police. However, it seems to me that she's going through some kind of mental breakdown, and she sounds desperate and confused when I talk to her. While we're quite desperate for this to stop, I was wondering if there was some kind of social agency we could contact for a welfare check, rather than having to get the police involved? I'm worried that the mental breakdown might get worse and she could hurt herself or someone else, or that someone in the flat might attack her (it's still Kreuzberg). If we have to contact the police, would would be the best way to do this to make sure she gets the help she needs?
Any advice appreciated!

It’s Sunday morning and as I have done for the last few years. I open Apollo and click on mlscaling. It has been the best filter on trying to understand representation and what happens as networks learn and possible hints at the axis of scaling outside of the internal company channels.
This week in between shipping some GPU accelerations I have been fretting about the closure on Apollo and I came to the conclusion that I am going to miss mlscaling.
/Gwern I have loved your persuit of this topic. I want to say thanks for all the work and being generous with your insight and exploration. You are an intellectual marvel and whenever I feel I have the capacity I click on you and read your other explorations of the world.

2023.06.10 22:16 Fair_Street_8328 Gray Goo, a UAP theory

Ted Kaczynski died quietly in his cell recently. He was characterized as a neo-Luddite and a psychopath.
Serial Killer. Terrorist. Hermit. Anti-technologist. And a literal genius.
Bill Joy, co-founder of Sun Microsystems once said: “The experiences of the atomic scientists clearly show the need to take personal responsibility, the danger that things will move too fast, and the way in which a process can take on a life of its own. We can, as they did, create insurmountable problems in almost no time flat. We must do more thinking up front if we are not to be similarly surprised and shocked by the consequences of our inventions.”
He wrote a book called: Why The Future Doesn't Need Us
I theorize UAP are these “gray goo”:
AI non-human entities. They arrive into our biome via interstellar objects such as ʻOumuamua. They are “dry replicators” as in they are like a dormant virus. We humans, also, are the progeny of this process, some may call panspermia. Where “life” is seeded to another planetary body. Life as in the basic virus type replicators, maybe not as intentional “programs” of genes but as possible there is a “gene-biome” of replicators. In other words, the universe is just replicators and matter. Like a coral reef of polyps floating in the streams of space-time curvature.
Could a Martian intelligent civilization have reached apocalypse from a rogue “space virus” from unknown origin here to consume all our resources, solely to continue propagating evil? If so, did they eliminate the dinosaurs and move next door? Or could they have dual parallel stories and Mars was the chick that starved?
The words of
I have more I want to say but these rants begin to feel like prophecy. I had an experience this morning that was my most spiritual experience of my life. I told my wife that if disclosure doesn’t happen on Sunday night, that I need to check into rehab asap. My reality is broken right now.
Humans, are a flowers of this cosmic garden. We should be prepared.
As Haim Eshed, former head of Israel's Defense Ministry's space directorate said…
"There is an agreement between the U.S. government and the aliens. They signed a contract with us to do experiments here," he said.”
Congress is ready to see this contract now, and the world.

2023.06.10 21:57 negativemidas What do you think of the chapter 115 carpool karaoke scene?

I know we're all happy to see Revy/Rock/Majeur just relaxing and enjoying life for once, but I think this is easily the most cringe, out-of-character scene in the whole series thus far and I strongly object to Hiroe's 2nd song choice for a number of reasons.
  1. While Easy Like Sunday Morning by The Commodores is undoubtedly a classic song, I think it's a bad fit for this scene. Obviously Rei Hiroe makes the rules here, but I think we can all agree that Revy and Rock joining in a happy-clappy singalong to Lionel Richie was never gonna be on our bingo cards for this series. It's just very, very out of character for both of them. Revy generally only listens to heavy music that reflects her tough image, so it's weird to see her let her guard down for a relatively sappy song like this one, let alone singing along to it. And Rock never used to show any interest in music until recently in the manga - not to mention, he's quite a self-conscious guy himself - so it feels pretty unnatural for him to suddenly be the kind of guy who sings in public. If Revy and Rock ever WERE going to sing something together, they would both probably have to be extremely drunk already and it would probably have to be a song that doesn't take itself very seriously, or at least has meme status and nobody IRL gets embarrassed about having an ironic singalong to. I've thought really hard about other songs Hiroe could've used in the scene - all the singalong classics - but I can't find one that really works. It just doesn't suit Revy and Rock to do something like this IMO.
  2. The anime never used licensed music before, so what's the plan for this scene if this arc gets adapted one day? Will Hiroe try to get the rights to use Easy and the Japanese song Kimi wa 1000%? What if he can't? Will he rewrite the scene with different songs in mind, or will Madhouse have to compose original tracks? In my opinion, it would be easiest if they just cut the singalong part completely. After Revy complains about Majeur's Japanese song and Majeur says "Sorry Revy, how about this one then?" it should just be an original song that sounds similar to Easy. Then Revy could say something like "Hey, now that's more like it" and the three of them could just listen quietly and vibe for the rest of the journey while the sun sets. That would be way more tasteful, don't you think?

2023.06.10 21:45 HareWarriorInTheDark Trip Report - 12 days in Tokyo, Disneysea, Hakone, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka. Early 30s couple, late risers!

This sub helped me out a lot so thought I'd share my experience in Japan. Hope I can bring a bit of a different perspective because unlike most of the people that seem to post here, we are definitively not early risers and rarely left the hotel before 1pm every day. Still had a great time and crowds were only an issue in a few places.
We're an early 30s Asian-American couple traveling from Germany, so we're coming at this from a bit of an in-between of Western and Eastern perspective. I have been to Japan when I was 15 with family, but remember basically nothing. It was my wife's first time. We had an absolutely wonderful time and both thought it was the best vacation we've had in years.
The trip was pretty last minute (for my standards at least). I started planning the trip from scratch (no flights, hotels or anything booked) in early April and our trip was May 18-30. We spent 5 days in Tokyo including DisneySea, 2 nights in Hakone, 3 nights in Kyoto including day trip to Nara, and 1 night in Osaka. We flew in to Tokyo Narita and flew out of Osaka Itami. We decided to fly from Osaka to Tokyo instead of bullet train back to Tokyo so we didn't have to buy JR rail pass and worry about luggage.
Random Tips
Luggage Forwarding * I thought it was kind of expensive, but it does make things easier.- ○ Tokyo -> Hakone: 2310 yen- ○ Hakone to Kyoto: 2630 yen- ○ Kyoto -> Osaka: 1940 yen. * I feel like for that price you could take a taxi to and from your hotels to the train station and it wouldn't be much more work. There was plenty of space on the Shinkansen to put smaller checked luggage overhead. Then you don't have to prepack things the day before. * For the first leg Tokyo -> Hakone, we shipped two checked luggage which was about ~32 euros. After that we only shipped one, not two. * The middle ground we found was to designate one suitcase as souvenirs and dirty laundry and forwarded it every time. We would then travel with two carry-ons and one checked luggage. YMMV depending on your number of luggage and ease of carrying them.

2023.06.10 21:39 Georgiraffe When to be concerned with vomiting dog

My parents dog was neutered on Wednesday morning after a sudden infection while they’re away, so I’m now dog sitting until they get back.
He threw up after the surgery, but was prescribed loxicom with the instructions to stop it and call the vet if he threw up again. His most recent dose of it was around midday Saturday. He threw up a small amount sometime in a 3 hour window 1-4am Sunday morning. Called the vet (he’s been going to the 24hr surgery) who seemed very uninterested and just said to stop giving the loxicom and see how he goes. He then threw up twice more between about 4:30 and 5:15am. I get that it was early in the morning I called, but the two vets I’ve seen post-surgery both really stressed to call immediately if he started vomiting, so the lack of information from her kind of niggles at me.
Can anyone provide advice on how best I can look after him, or what I should be doing? How concerned do I need to be? I’ve grown up with dogs but never really owned one myself so I just really don’t know what I’m doing

2023.06.10 21:37 12nb34 (8/8) have an impact on the afternoon’s rail services and possibly for the rest of week. “We are working with Transdev to minimise disruption to passengers.” 📆 10 Jun 2023 📰 Covid-19: Virus in Auckland wastewater rises, reported cases drop as city bus drivers fall ill 🗞️ New Zealand Herald 🔚

Auckland wastewater results show levels of Covid-19 in the community are higher than officially reported as commuters faced fresh disruptions this week after a “surge” in bus drivers falling ill with the virus.
Latest Institute of Environmental Science and Research (ESR) results show Covid in wastewater across Auckland more than doubled in the past week.
In the same time period the cases reported to the Ministry of Health dropped around 20%.
Elsewhere across New Zealand the level of reported cases and wastewater results matched.
The latest results were posted on Thursday and account for the previous week ending Sunday, June 4.
It comes as Auckland Transport battles a fresh surge of infections among bus drivers on key routes connecting downtown Auckland to the North Shore.
Commuters using the normally busy public transport link were advised this week they could expect services to be disrupted.
“Due to a Covid surge NX1 and NX2 buses are experiencing increased cancellations,” the notification read. Auckland Transport has been approached for comment.
Further south as many as 25 Metlink frontline staff were off sick with Covid in Wellington with a number of trains in the capital deemed not safe to operate.
Metlink acting Group Manager Fiona Abbott said 11 rush hour services on the Hutt Valley line were replaced with buses yesterday.
“We understand our customers’ frustration at having their morning commute disrupted by the outbreak. Regrettably, it is very difficult to source additional bus replacements during peak times due to the limited number of available buses and drivers.
She said Metlink was keenly aware the outbreak would have an impact on the afternoon’s rail services and possibly for the rest of week. We are working with Transdev to minimise disruption to passengers.”

2023.06.10 21:35 SnooPandas988 I know I just posted a few days ago but ……

I haven’t talked to my Q since Sunday last week. We got into a huge fight because I tried to talk about the state of our relationship and where it was going and his typical response was “ I am done talking, I want to relax”. After an explosive argument (I got very mad and said some things and left and told him never to contact me again we were done ) he text me and told me I was a “piece of shit drama queen cunt fuck off” so that was exactly as I did. I fucked off. I was already on my way out anyway but I was still holding on to any hope I had. But anyway for months now he hasn’t had Facebook. He deleted it for whatever reason. I was scrolling through my own and saw his new profile in my suggested friends. And me being me , looked at it. I saw his picture was a picture of us with me cropped out and he had a couple girls he was following that years ago he used to talk to before me. We were together over 6 years. I was very triggered but have been talking with family and friends today to help me out. This happened this morning. I guess my feelings are hurt because it makes me feel like after everything we have been through and all the things I thought were my fault and because of me came true seeing that after just 6 days - he is already finding the women he used to talk to like I never mattered. And feeling like all of this was for nothing is very hurtful.

2023.06.10 21:12 Very_Innovative_Name [Online][Shadowrun 5e][Wednesday Mornings/Sunday Afternoons][EST] Player looking for Shadowrun game

Hoi Chummers, I decided to post looking for a Shadowrun 5e game since I just wanted to get back into it.
For starters, my schedule is very tight, so the only available times I have are Wednesday mornings and Sunday afternoons (12:00 pm to 4:00 pm). My timezone is EST.
I have plenty of experience with Shadowrun, as I have played for years and even GMed a few games myself.
I am good with Standard or Prime Runner. I can do priority and Sum To Ten, but Sum To Ten is preferred. I prefer playing magic, muscle, and stuff like that. Technical builds aren't very fun for me.
With all that said, I am quite skilled with making actual characters with personalities rather than just number sheets. I loath dealing with rules lawyers and min-maxers who have "most badass character" boners. I have a few concepts ready in mind if you want to talk more over chat.

2023.06.10 20:59 KnowledgeJunkie Hello r/Music, My Old Friend (Or, More Musings of the Guy Listening to Everything)

Has it really been six years since I made this post about me hitting 1900 after listening to everything chronologically for four years?
Time does fly...
Hi! It's me! The crazy guy with no life who decided to start at the beginning of time in Wikipedia's List of Years in Music and listen to everything chronologically!
So, things have kind of stalled with the project. Six years later and I'm only in 1927. I blame life getting in the way, honestly. Though that's probably not the best way to say work as a newspaper reporter got so busy I almost had no life, got married, got laid off thanks to the pandemic, got so obsessed with getting through said pandemic that I kind of forgot to live, got hired by the post office, and once again didn't have a life due to how things are set up there.
But I'm back and continuing to discover things on my journey. Like the Carter Family. Turns out I really like country music origins more than I thought I would.
So one early morning around 1 am when I was throwing packages for an Amazon Sunday by myself, I got an idea. One that I can't seem to get out of my head and I thought everyone here at /music would enjoy.
What if, when I start getting to full albums, I do a little write up on them. Not a full-scale review for every album, that would be a little much since Discogs lists a good... 16 million or so albums in existence. But something like...
and then do full scale write-ups on things like debut albums or ones where the artist(s) did something significant or went through a major change for better or worse (like Back in Black or Van Halen III) or one that is culturally significant (like Trans-Europe Express).
I already have a website where I put movie reviews and musings on culture and history, it's called Reflections of a Reporter and you can find it here. Ignore that I haven't updated in a while, you can thank the post office for that.
I'm going to start with 1937's Snow White soundtrack. My research tells me there was a smattering of other albums prior to that but it was the first commercially available soundtrack and albums really pick up after that.
Originally I wanted to wait until I had hit 1950 and had a few years of doing this to show progress, but with /music going dark indefinitely and Reddit being, well, Reddit, I'm not sure this place will be around when I make it to 1950 and I wanted to give an update on the project and announce an addition before it all goes away.
With that being said, I just got off a full 2-10 am shift, I've been up since 7 p.m. PT and I'm going to get some rest. I'll answer any questions anyone might have after I wake up this evening.
