2023.06.08 17:09 HaveIGoneInsaneYet SFV Grandmaster Choses Modern Controls
Why am I writing this post?
I see a fair bit of angst against players who use modern controls. Particularly from people who've played other versions of StreetFighter, saying that anyone who uses modern over classic are bad at the game and are limiting their growth. So I want to show people a clear and concrete example of a player who's good at streetfighter choosing to use modern. Hopefully helping to reduce the stigma people have about modern controls, maybe even convince a few to try it out for themselves or continue using them during their ranked journey.
Why am I using modern controls over classic, especially since I have a lot of prior experience?
Antiairing with dp is hard. In SFV I played Ken. Even though I had a good aa dp I still opted to use crhp 99% of the time. Doing this allowed me to be insanely consistant at antiairing. Modern gives me that same functionality with the 1 button dp. Sure, I've lost access to different speeds of fireball, some jump buttons, and a few grounded normals but I've gained 1 button exdps and supers as neutral tools. The speed an consistency that you can input those is not something you can do in classic. The options they shutdown especially when you're in burnout, far outweigh what you lose in my opinion. The biggest con to the modern control scheme is how hard it is for someone to use it after years of playing classic controls. It legitimately fried my brain to even think about holding down the assist button not just wanting the alternate move but even to do the autocombos. I continue see moments in my gameplay where using modern causes me to lose interactions because my brain is still fighting the control scheme. But that is a problem solvable by time and practice.
I legitimately think modern has a place in the competitive scene. I'm currently diamond 1 with a high win rate, and I fully believe that I'll be better at SF6 than I was as SFV. I hope we see even top players choosing modern over classic in specific match ups. But even better will be seeing new players do well in tournament, who got into the game be cause modern controls got them to try out the game.

2023.06.08 17:08 WetLion6725 Looking for some self help tips at home while I'm waiting for treatment
So I found out the other week I have CPTSD. Phsyciatrist wants to meet up in 4 weeks to talk treatment plan etc, but I need help like now. I have so much to do, at home, in general with my life, work, social life, everythingggg and I know the treatment with them can be a long process I can't wait another year or 2 to function I'm falling apart at the seams.
It's already been put off for years and I'm getting to the stage now where its not just 1 or 2 things that need taken care of it's everything and if I don't sort myself back out to a functioning sort of state I'm worried I'm gonna slowly loose everything I've tried do hard to work for and build on, I'm loosing friends, clients at work because I keep taking days off cause I don't feel up to it, struggling to keep on top of the house, finances started to look seriously questionable, it just feels like everything's falling apart.
Psych was nice enough gave me the standard leaflet and booklet of it told me to go easy on myself etc but I don't have time to take it easy, and I know right, I have all the time in the world bla bla bla but I don't let's be honest I don't and I've already lost so much time to my shtty "parents" and a@s#%s. I wanna live my effin life and stop being a terrified hermit rotting away on the inside, I literally just wanna be able to do the basics without everything feeling like a massive horrendous terrifying chore and I'd rather just sleep my life away.
How do u guys ground urself or try keep ur mood high or at least stable so you can get on with stuff, I know the basics on grounding, done some dbt work but that was prior to my diagnosis and yea it helped me be more logical but it hasn't really changed how I feel or my mood in anyway and it's the unpreidcatbale mood swings that have me all over the place, I've recently learned they could due to emotional flashbacks but I don't even know how to pinpoint them to know if that's what is the cause or ughhh I dno I'm rambling at this point and don't even have the capacity to read over this but yea if anyone has any tips to just stabilise my mood a little or a good way to distract the mind and keep myself grounded it would be so appreciated.
Sending u all love and healing vibes ♡

2023.06.08 17:08 TehKingofPrussia Finished act 5 for the first time, here are my impressions of the game
First of all, I really like Darkest Dungeon 2 and I would say overall I prefer it to DD1.
DD1 was extremely repetitive and tedious after I figured out (heard from Filthy Robot) that keeping 2 enemies alive and stress healing+healing to max at the end of every fight is the way to go, every fight was more or less the same. It was also EXTREMELY grindy and a very long game. To this day I've never finished DD1, I've tried multiple times, but every time I would get burnt out before I would get to the end. To this day I still don't know what the final boss of DD1 is like (tho I did spoil it for myself a bit so I know who
DD2, on the other hand, is much more to my liking. The art and animations are very welcome, the whole game seems much higher quality overall. The new combat mechanics and deeper character and ability interactions+relationship management is also excellent, although I'm not a fan of +relations items that work on random chance, considering how big the difference between +3 and -2 is. The whole gameplay loop of DD2 is much more enjoyable and a lot less grindy.
But my absolute favourite in this game is the Flagellant. I fcking love that class and he has the single best Hero Shrine mission in the game.
I only have 3 problems with DD2:
- It's too short. After I put together my Plague Doc+Jester+Grave Robber+Flagellant teamcomp, unlocked their skills and paid some candles for them, both Act 3, Act 4 and Act 5 bosses went down on first try and I went into the act 4 and 5 bosses completely blind (I've heard the legend of the bullshit that the act 3 boss is so I did spoil it for myself, but then I killed him on the first go). I don't know how meta that team is, I figured it out by myself and it's pretty potent (125 damage Sepsis on Focused Fault? Yummm) I hope more content is coming, I'm more than ready for it!
- I say this with extreme reluctance...but the latter half is too easy. Maybe I just had a really OP team and some good luck, but I spent way more time on the second and third acts than the fourth and the fifth. By that point of the game I've had a well-oiled and apparently quite strong strategy that worked really well and I just breezed through the game.
- Act 3 boss and the Captain enemy are way too strong. Act 3 boss is just ridiculous and I think this is more or less widely accepted. It's such a braindead fight...just attack attack attack. Don't even bother doing anything else, just go berserk and hope for good Death Door rolls (and itemise to 90%).
The Captain enemy is a personal nemesis of mine, Captains killed me more than Act bosses. Unless you have a pull that can hit position 4, you're kinda f*cked. They are especially bad because of where you encounter them. This happened to me the first 3 times I encountered them and before I unlocked the Jester's pull:
Captain buffs whole team before I could kill him.Size 2 enemy crit AOE's the whole team, even though I blind himmy entire team is on or close to death door and is shuffledturn 2 starts and I get a bunch of random blue tokensenemy is still full of dodge rolls and god knows what else. They gain such a massive advantage in the first turn that it becomes a nightmare to catch up with them afterwards.
Last time I played this fight out without a pull I lost 2 Heroes, even though everything else before (and more or less, after) was a cakewalk. They are way overtuned for a size 1 support enemy. I tried blinding, weaken, I tried focusing the captain hard, nothing seems to work consistently except for pulls.
No other enemy gave me this much trouble in the game. I think your tools are very limited when it comes to dealing with him, he's a devastating insta-game over enemy hiding in positon 4 with a lot of health and if you let him take just a single action you are in way too much trouble. The fact that his team gets the free fog from the area makes it even worse.
I would suggest that he should take 1 turn to prepare that bullshit buff spell so you at least have 2 turns before he ends your run.
Other than that, I'm very happy with the game and I'm looking forward to more expansions!

2023.06.08 17:08 mrnotadvice QQQ insurance trade - and I still think the market is going higher
| || | submitted by mrnotadvice to MrNotAdvice [link] [comments]
While I believe that the market is setup to go higher, and of course you know that the market could care less what I believe, but yesterdays selling was strong and sudden. That leads me to believe that it was programmed trading and/or coordinated. Now, trying to figure out what a bunch of bots or institutions are doing is as hard as figuring out when the Philadelphia Flyers will win their next Stanley Cup,. the following trade is for insurance. Remember that with options there is not only a directional component, but an "acceleration" component.
When price moves in a direction and starts gaining momentum, the option will move more - this is also called GAMMA. That's about as technical as I want to be and there are other Members who can offer more details than I. Let's look at it this way: I believe the market will test that 371.24 level. https://preview.redd.it/b3qt55iz5t4b1.png?width=948&format=png&auto=webp&s=e232a71c9e83b95b131edb00b8cbf1c2f658f4a0
But I cannot ignore the confirmed reversal we put in yesterday.
The pattern is called a High Close Doji.
Its when price closes below the low of the previous day (or periods) low. The previous day's candle is called the Trigger Candle and in this case, it happened on Monday.
The rules of a High Close Doji, or HCD, are as follows: A high is made -this is the Trigger Candle. Within 3 days a candle closes below the low of the Trigger Candle - this is called the Confirmation Candle. Thats a confirmed reversal - and when you hear me call a "Confirmed Reversal" this is what I am talking about. So, the stop would be a close above the Trigger Candle high. And that's it. Thats one of two of the most high probability setups I use. It is simple if executed correctly and the stop is respected. Start looking for them on the daily chart. Also, add in if the reversal happens at a previous area of Resistance, or a +2sd (Standard Deviation) then its even better. This is how I trade with such high probability. I am more than happy to have a live lesson on this if there is interest so let me know. https://preview.redd.it/y5uio7ir6t4b1.png?width=357&format=png&auto=webp&s=ce1290c80250f5aae5d8804a87046b9cfc03a806 High Close Doji: Trigger Candle
- must be the candle with the highest high. The more previous resistance the better. And it is only valid when the market has gone UP not after a period of consolidation. Confirmation Candle
- Must happen within 3 time periords - the sooner the stronger the reversal. Entry Candle
- The day/hour whatever the time period after the Confirmation Candle. Stop
- A close above the Trigger Candle high.
Therefore, I am adding an insurance position, QQQ puts. You might wonder how I can be long and short at the same time. Well, first of all, this is insurance. If we break the 357.78 level on the daily, then I take the small loss on this trade. But if the downside continues, then I am positioned to make some money. Also, because yesterday was a moderate Bearish Engulfing candle, I would expect a retrace up to 352 - 353 area. This happens, a lot, on these type of big red candles. So, here's the trade I am in and sent to VIPs and Traders yesterday. https://preview.redd.it/6hq7hdrl7t4b1.png?width=783&format=png&auto=webp&s=afe71d4c4e2a2f945303f27b395e1f56094c3f52
I am buying QQQ puts. I am positioned sized at 10% of my total.
Now, I know at least I have some insurance and if the market continues down, I will be able to absorb some loss and make money. One other comment: I put a post up the other day about the market going up. I still believe the market will test that 371.24 level. I WAS surprised at the selloff yesterday but I still do think that level will be tested. Why? Because the market is so close to that level that I believe programmed traders etc. will want to see "what's up there" - sort of like a gap. I find it interesting that the day after major firms called for higher highs in the market, all of a sudden out of nowhere we get a selloff. I am not a conspiracy theorist, ok, maybe a little when it comes to aliens and crop circles and the US government being run by Lizard People (shout out to u/Eclectic
!). But I do find it interesting that the day some firms came out and called for higher levels, the market pooped its pants. This type of stuff is fun to debate but in the end, I trade price. I STILL believe the market is going higher. Timeframe, within the next couple of days. But in case I am wrong, which I can be often, I am positioned for it. I don't care about being wrong on directional calls because I am following price. Here's more of what guides me: If the Daily time period confirms a reversal with a HCD, Then the Weekly needs to confirm also. Then the Monthly needs to confirm. The longer the time period, the more conviction. Sounds simple but most just call out a direction without any math behind it. Now you can see why I can trade with so little emotion and trust of my calls: its based on sound math and even more sound candlestick reading. I will try to do a better job explaining WHY I am doing something from now on. My ultimate goal is to teach men and women to fish.

2023.06.08 17:06 Traditional_Earth149 What’s the worst set of docs you’ve seen?
Just finished up a job today, that is by far the worst set of documents I’ve ever been sent to price! Highlights included.
Every revision of the drawings from T1 onwards (most drawings were up to T7) just dumped into a folder with no sorting.
All drawings were just references no Indication of what they were including no reference to the revision just row after row of files with the same name and just a number at the end that didn’t relate to the revision number.
A schedule of drawings (over 100 drawings) that hadn’t been updated so a lot of the revision numbers were wrong.
Finally sorted them all out to the latest to find they hadn’t been coordinated. Between the schematics and the layouts sizes of pipework was different on multiple areas
And to cap it off I had three schematics for riser five one for drainage, water and heating. Each of them showed a different number of overall floors and none of them matched the layouts!!
What’s been your horror stories?

2023.06.08 17:06 autotldr Brightest gamma ray burst: The most powerful space explosion ever seen
This is the best tl;dr I could make, original
reduced by 66%. (I'm a bot)
Scientists have discovered that a structured jet carrying large amounts of blown star guts pointing right at Earth triggered a record-breaking space explosion that lit up the sky with the highest power we've ever seen. Summary Source FAQ Feedback Top keywords: jet#1 burst#2 GRB#3 star#4 explosion#5
This collapse created a gamma-ray burst with a narrow, organized jet surrounded by a larger outflow of gas.
"GRB 221009A represents a massive step forward in our understanding of gamma-ray bursts, and demonstrates that the most extreme explosions do not obey the standard physics assumed for garden variety gamma-ray bursts," says astronomer Brendan O'Connor of George Washington University, lead author on the new paper.
According to the team's findings, something else was a substantial amount of expelled outer star material pulled along by the jet as it burst through.
"GRB jets need to go through the collapsing star in which they are formed," explains astrophysicist Hendrik Van Eerten of the University of Bath in the UK. "What we think made the difference, in this case, was the amount of mixing that happened between the stellar material and the jet, such that shock-heated gas kept appearing in our line of sight all the way up to the point that any characteristic jet signature would have been lost in the overall emission from the afterglow."
"The exceptionally long GRB 221009A is the brightest Gamma Ray Burst ever recorded and its afterglow is smashing all records at all wavelengths," O'Connor says.

2023.06.08 17:06 NotedHeathen Male cat easily accepted younger male cat, but hates the new, 8-week-old female kitten. Help!
When we introduced our 2-year-old, neutered-later-in-life-former-Tom, Chicharrón, to our 2-year-old neutered-before-full-sexual-maturity cat, Vinny, there was some hissing through the bathroom door for a couple of days, but by day 3 they were playing footsie and touching noses. It’s been two years and they’re best friends.
Fast forward to now: a week ago, we brought home a female kitten we rescued from the highway and it’s a totally different story. Although Vinny adores her, Cheech begins hissing intensely wherever he’s close to her through the door or her covered kitten crate, even transferring some of that aggression to Vinny (brief hissing and swatting before they settle down and are back to normal again).
That said, he doesn’t rush the kennel or try to get at her, he just stands his ground and hisses intensely at her until we distract him with treats or toys.
We’ve tried scent swapping, but he gets dangerous if we attempt to rub her scent on him. We fed him near her crate, but he’s so food obsessed, he hardly notices her enough to make the association. Given his huge size and potential to kill her, there’s no way I’d let her out of her kennel around him.
I’m beginning to get worried that we’ll never be able to safely let her out. I’m also confused as to why another male was so easily accepted whereas a tiny female kitten isn’t. Has anyone else been in this situation? If so, what helped, how long did it take?
Chicharrón gets lots of attention and love and has many escapes. We’re starting the Feliway plug-in tonight and taking him in tomorrow to have bloodwork and get his dental issues tackled (hopefully the insight and pain reduction will help), but I’m contemplating asking for a med that might help mellow him during the transition. At this point, I’m not sure how else to proceed.

2023.06.08 17:06 Vegetable-Editor9482 Quilt finished but it shrank a LOT. Add a border after the fact?
I finished a quilt for my husband and am very happy with the way it turned out, but it's too small! I had planned and measured and thought I had it right--I even prewashed all of the fabrics. I did do more quilting on it than I had on my first two; could that have reduced the size significantly?
Most importantly, is there a way to add a border to it now? Here's what I'm thinking:
- Remove binding
- Cut border; pin right side of border to both sides of the sandwich, raw edges aligned
- Turn; line up batting, pin new border sandwich together
- Quilt border, probably in a different pattern since it would be tough to line them up

2023.06.08 17:06 Pyro-trips My breakthrough with my eyes open for 90% of the time
So I took dmt like 2 or 3 years ago and had a trip where I payed in my bed took the first hit and got the experience of a super strong mushroom trip then took my second hit, I started to feel my body crack like glass and a pain in the back of my neck started to persist. Then I took my third hit and I had shattered into a million pieces at this point I was just a soul on top of a bed then I see this eyeball in my ceiling with a phycedelic style to it then the eyeball opened and inside the eyeball wass maybe 15 different ancestors of mine who looked like warriors and asked “are you ready?” I said “yes!!!!” Then they giggled at my excitement and pulled me through the eyeball, at this point I’m guessing I blacked out cuz I left the room entirely to travel through this phycedelic eyeball and got to meet very VERY POWERFUL entities. Most of them seemed like they were chilling in there own little space but when they saw me they had this energy of “bro what are you doing in here? Who let you in here? “ then I would just stare at them in aw (I had this feeling of being a child with big bulgy eyes that had just seen the biggest slice of cake get put in his plate” at this point I would fall back into my room and chat with the ancestors of mine for a little bit and then they would say “you ready for another one?” Then I would of course say yes and get launched back into another realm with entities in it that we’re pretty much gods of different aspects of life. When I finally stopped getting sent to different realms I lay on my bed with the ancestors in my head and all around me telling me how much they missed me and to try and learn from this and don’t abuse this. After they finally left I lifted my head up super fast and gasped with joy and started laugh,crying. When I finally calmed down from how amazing it was I look over and realized I had my girlfriend at the time, on FaceTime with me. She was not pleased, she was upset that I didn’t do it with her and it made me upset and still had slight entity thoughts in my head that told me “she’s not happy for your amazing realization” so I broke up with her the next day for her shitty attitude. I don’t regret a thing. Dmt changed my life for the good!

2023.06.08 17:05 stego-goes-gao Current makeup of the squad
An update to this post from two months back
Premier League Rules
Source: PL Website
- A squad can contain no more than 17 players who do not fulfil "Home Grown Player" criteria.
- The remainder of the squad, up to a total of 25 players, must be home grown.
- A "Home-Grown Player" means a player who, irrespective of nationality or age, has been registered with any club affiliated to The Football Association or the Football Association of Wales for a period, continuous or not, of three entire seasons, or 36 months, before his 21st birthday (or the end of the season during which he turns 21).
If you don't have a Home-Grown Player, you can simply begin the season with 17 foreign players. If you want more players on your squad, up to a maximum of 25, they need to be home grown. So it is not a strict rule but given the number of matches and expected injuries, it is fair to expect each team will wish to utilize the 25-player limit by filling the squad with 8 home-grown players.
European competitions have a stricter version of this rule. You can read the exact wording here at official UEFA site
. I will paraphrase it below.
- Maximum Squad Size: 25
- Minimum Club-Trained players: 4
- Minimum Association-Trained players: 8
Once again, there is no strict requirement. Just roll up with 17 foreign players, leave the other spots blank and the club is free to participate in the competition. The rules here make a distinction between "Club-Trained" and "Association-Trained" players.
Association-Trained players are Home-Grown players as above(with the exception that Welsh players no longer count as Association-Trained unless they played under FA pyramid; because Wales has a different Association; this exception shouldn't matter to top clubs anyway).
Club-Trained is the same definition as Home-Grown except the player had to spend their formative years at the specific club. This is to encourage academy investment and use, and mitigate top clubs just buying Association-Trained players and calling it a day.
Each competition further has exceptions on adding youngsters.
- PL allows registering unlimited number of U-21 players, i.e. they do not take a spot on the squad list if they were born on or after January 1, 2002 (for season starting 2023)
- CL/EL/ECL allows registering unlimited number of U-21 players IF they have been at the club for at least 2 years, starting from their 15th birthday.
LFC Squad Foreign Player
Club-Trained (also Home-Grown) Player
- van Dijk
Association-Trained (also Home-Grown) Player
- Calvin Ramsay
- Will not take a spot for next season in PL; however needs to be registered for UEFA as foreign-player
- Will take a foreign-player spot in PL 2024/25 and beyond due to PL definition of season being "from the day the summer transfer window closes to the last league match of the season" (Source: PL Handbook) ; Will also take a foreign player slot for UEFA
- Will qualify as club-trained player in CL/EL/ECL 2025/26 & beyond if PL 2025/26 starts in August due to UEFA definition saying "the season immediately following his 21st birthday may be counted if his birthday is on or after 1 July (winter championships) or 1 January (summer championships) but before the first match of the relevant national championship." (Ramsay's birthday is July 31; rule source is UEFA document)
- Harvey Elliott
- Qualifies as Club-Trained(and Home-Grown) starting this summer for both PL and UEFA.
- Does not need to be registered on either list for next season since he is still U-21
- Stefan Bajcetic
- Qualifies as Club-Trained(and Home-Grown) starting this summer for both PL and UEFA.
- Does not need to be registered on either list for next season since he is still U-21
- Fabio Carvalho
- Continues to qualify as Association-Trained(and Home-Grown) as usual
- Does not need to be registered on either list for next season since he is still U-21
- Will never qualify as Club-Trained in the future due to being signed a year late
tl;dr - Liverpool can sign a maximum of 2 foreign players unless someone leaves. Also while there is not an urgent need for it, Liverpool can sign a maximum of 3 additional homegrown players to supplement the squad.
- Current Squad Size: 20 (+2 in Elliott/Bajcetic who are club-trained but do not need to be registered for next season; +1 in Ramsay who is a complicated case; not counting Carvalho since it seems he is set to leave)
- Foreign Spots available: 2 (if 2 new foreign signings do come in, Ramsay cannot be registered for Europe)
- Homegrown spots: 6 club-trained players in Trent/Curtis/KelleheJoe/Harvey/Bajcetic starting from summer 2024 + 1 homegrown player in Hendo. Can always be supplemented with academy players if someone steps up to senior squad(or the old reliable in Nat and Rhys if they stay)
- Contracts expiring in 2024: Adrian, Matip, Thiago
- Contracts expiring in 2025: Trent, Salah, VVD, Hendo, Tsimikas, Nat Phillips
If Kone+Thuram happens and no one else leaves, then Liverpool can only sign homegrown players to supplement the squad.

2023.06.08 17:05 sebastianistoblame Sleeping bag for bikepacking the Slovenian alps
I will be bikepacking in Slovenia this July on the West Loop route. I currently own a Mountain Equipment Classic 500 sleeping bag (Comfort rating 0°C) and Decathlon mat with an R-value of 1.6. I am also using a silk liner. The bag is a little too warm for the temperatures I am expecting there (around 11°C). Also, I want to save some space so I am currently looking for a new sleeping bag.
I am based in Germany, therefore I currently have my eyes on a Cumulus Lite-Lite 200 (Comfort rating 9°C). There's also an option to overfill the bag with 30g of additional down, which increases the comfort temperature to 7°C. Packing size will stay the same then.
I think I am kind of a cold sleeper as I found my setup a bit cold in 5°C nights, but this might just be because of the low R-Value of my mat or the fact that the ME Classic bag is a little big for me.
A lot of people here like quilts, but I think I will rather stick to a sleeping bag.
Do you have any other recommendations? What do you think of the overfilling idea?

2023.06.08 17:05 TimmyTurnersDad6 Hi, my name is *truck drives by* but everyone just calls me dad.
please don't call me dad.
But yes! Hello it's my first time on reddit! A little-lot about me:
- I first used reddit as of posting this about 2-ish weeks ago but I've shadowed Reddit for much longer. I never wanted to make an account due to shyness, confusing rules, and the dreaded censorship that seems to plague every platform. (Plz don't ban me reddit, I beg.) However due to my introvertedness taking over more and more, now seemed like a good a time as any!
- Yep! The name comes from a Nickelodeon cartoon, and if I have to explain from: ¹ how dare you. ² we can't be friends!
- I browsed over hundreds of subreddits, always thinking if I ever did join - where would I start? I had ideas of where, but not-so-much when...And given said strict rules, I always thought I had a knit and knack for sentence structure, spelling and grammar as I've been complimented on my penmanship and organization skills...yet, reddit I'm sure will truly test me on that. I've been out of an English class for many, many years now. So forgive me in advance I'll try my best!
- Speaking of many, many years - I'm not so young and not so old either! It's a mystery. And as per reddit guidelines to not share sensitive information - I suppose I will keep it that way. You'll just have to think of me as an enigmatic mr. magoo-like shape; formless in the hands of it's users, but an organized cut figure in staunch of his allies. Think of Inspector gadget except more mysterious. (And who trips on his own shoelaces.) So...basically Timmy's dad!
- I'm a gamer, hobbiest writer and photographer, and a perspective teacher (in my former years) and I plan on adding a bit of each into their respective subreddit categories in some form of time. I write amateur poetry from time to time, stemming from natural & creative to erotic prose gasp! and when I feel like it - short stories. I tend to also gravitate towards shapeable wordless songs and giving them my own spin (like ost's), as well as coming up with songs lyrics of my own. I went to a magnet school in my younger years for all of the above forms of writing as well as screenwriting and playwriting. All of this is fun to me and that's the extent of it. Nothing more. If you stumble upon any of my former pieces searching for an answer as to why I wrote some of the things I said, or why I said them...it comes down to just whatever floats into my peripheral vision in that given moment; sometimes it's music that inspires me, and othertimes it's just what needs to be said. And hey, sometimes I'm blindsided by my blindspots. And other, other, some times I stop using the word "time" so often! Grrr!
- As for games, I'm a replayer of not-so-old games that are not so timeless, but not-so new anymore eiGarrett! This is mainly due to financial tightness and that older games charm I can't forget. Games such as:
- Kingdom Hearts 358/2 days (and all it's entries, except Unchained X)
- Resident Evil 4
- Uncharted 3 (and all it's entries, except Golden Abyss)
- Breath of the Wild
- Sonic Advance 2 & 3
- Yugioh 5d's Wheelie Breakers
- Yugioh 5d's world championship 2011: Over the Nexus
- Yugioh Tagforce 4 & 5
- Destiny 1 & 2
- Apex Legends
(There are others, but these are some games I hold dear that come off the top of my head.)
I've found games sometimes help shape and induce flow-like states to help us ease into transitions of moment-to-moment actions defining our playable characters, some. Or in other cases, defining ourselves most when we need to caught between a rock and a hard place...like in a gunfight...(I'm looking you Apex Legends, Uncharted, and Destiny.) But yes, in those instances - I've found that what help shape me along with some of the game's life-lessons taught to our characters, did indeed help shape me into the person I am today. (Inb4 someone says I identify as Harumo-chan the master of hoe-jitsu), lol no I'm saying the best parts about our characters can help shape us sometimes without us even knowing it. (But Harumo-chan did help shape me Timmy, why can't you see that?) More power to you then. The best parts for some and the worser parts for others i suppose. :P
6½. What i mean to the last point is, part of my strength I've found is from when I draw strength from other strong characters I've seen and what they've been through; (or put you through and thus you're going through the sh*t-show together.) Characters that have really inspired me are probably namely Sora, Riku & Roxas from Kingdom Hearts, Nathan Drake from Uncharted, Sonic, and Yusei from Yugioh 5d's. I know, very adult of me right? Mm, I am interested however where others draw their strength from? Which form of medium do they choose, why did they choose it and who do they draw strength from if not in a show or game?
I could talk about why I choose these individual characters but I believe that's best suited for another thread/post. P.s. as for tv shows though? A huge inspiration i draw from is Rick, from the walking dead. I don't watch many new shows anymore. (As for why that is, maybe that's also best suited for another post.)
- Speaking of shows - I don't really have time to watch anime all that much but some influential ones I've grown to be very fond of are:
- Yugioh 5d's (subbed)
- Sword Art Online (subbed) and season 1 only
- Soul Eater
- Avatar: The Last Airbender (yes this counts lol)
- DragonBall Super (subbed)
- Soul Eater
- Golden Time (one of the first anime's I've cried to, though that was a long time ago, would be interesting if I have the same reaction rewatching it. All I remember is getting exceptionally emotional and invested which was out of the usual for me. Although I can't remember which part got me the most.)
There are others, and I've seen all series of Yugioh and DragonBall alike, but these in particular stood out to me. For DragonBall Super mostly due to the absolute insanity the tournament of power was and that last fight. I've seen other animes or stopped, started and stopped again as I couldn't get invested into them. That's why Golden Time really took me by surprise. Same with Yugioh 5d's and S1 of Sword Art Online. I am interested to see what other subreddits with differing views on what sorts of animes other people prefer or recommend I watch.
Same with games, music or movies.
To wrap up,
Tldr; you can call me Timmy (Timmm-aH!) For short, or even shorter than short - dad, just don't get weird with it, (unless?...no I'm joking, unless?...) and I'm here like anyone else to peruse reddit on useful or entertaining things!
Anything else I'll either edit this big jumbo post or add on later!

We are both tool army member, he bought two tickets and i put in for 3. His went thru..then my order kept saying that i had exceeded my ticket limit.

2023.06.08 17:03 BottomShelfVodka The day my husband’s cat got us evicted from our townhome.
[July - September 2013]
The next 3 months were rather boring. We didn't have the money to blow out in town, so we spent most of our time either swimming in the community pool, or we were in the house playing Borderlands or watching Netflix. This was when Devon and I binge watched the full series of Breaking Bad, Weeds, and Sons of Anarchy. Aside from that, nothing too eventful occurred...until around mid September when we were evicted from our townhome.
Peanut remained high strung after we introduced the kitten. He went from being a sweet, snuggly kitten himself to being a 6 month grumpy old man. He was miserable and insisted everyone around him should be miserable as well.
He wasn't outright mean though. He never hissed or growled after the first week of the kitten's presence. He just started doing spiteful shit. He would hide in the shadows and attack our ankles when we'd walk by, or he would lay camouflaged on the hardwood floor in the middle of the night, ready to attack any unsuspecting victim passing him on their way to the bathroom.
One day, as I stood at the top of the stairs, I spotted Peanut downstairs. He was lounging on the back of the couch, sunbathing in the window, just minding his own business.
I'm not sure what came over me, but I excitedly yelled out "PEANUT!!" while running full speed down the stairs to pet him.
Well, that fucking spooked him, to say the least. I'm pretty sure he interrupted that excessive eagerness as me trying to murder him. One moment he was on the back of the couch; the next moment he was outside.
I didn't even know that was an option.
Not surprising considering the rest of the house was cheaply constructed out of paper mache and chewed bubble gum, but my husband's cat smashed out our fucking window. How.
I opened the front door to recover our poor, scared, evil baby kitty. I don't think he even knew how the fuck he had just teleported into the front yard either.
I cuddled him in my arms and apologized to him profusely for being so terrifying. When I brought him inside, I inspected his fur for any loose glass. He was unscratched and unharmed, thankfully, but I'm sure his adrenaline was through the roof.
Considering our account was still in the negative, we couldn't afford to fix the window immediately. Our solution was to tape up a few free boxes from our local liquor store. It was a good enough fix to block out the Mississippi heat, but it wasn't exactly aesthetically pleasing for curb appeal.
When we moved into the townhome originally, we decided to pinch a few pennies by simply not disclosing that we had a cat and a dog...and now another cat. You'd never suspect us to have pets though: no ammonia odor, no fucked up blinds, no chewed or clawed furniture. We've always kept a clean house, we just happened to have a smashed window bandaged with a few flattened out cardboard boxes and tape. No big deal.
A few days after the window incident, there was a knock on the door. It was the head of management. He came to congratulate us on having the fanciest looking house on the block, and he wanted me to help him remodel the rest of the houses to follow suit.
Lol nah, of course not. He was actually there for a "maintenance check"
...but he was actually, actually there because he wanted to know how the hell we broke that window. To avoid being penalized with a pet deposit, I tried to come up with a quick lie on the spot, but before I could answer, Peanut decided to greet the angry landlord by walking circles around his legs, covering the man's black slacks in his trademark orange fur. Angry landlord was not a fan of cats...or of me.
He wanted to take "a look around".
Why. He already saw the cat. Just increase my rent and go home already.
As he made his way through the living room, headed toward the kitchen to "check the appliances", he was greeted by another eager fuzzball who popped out to surprise him from behind the counter.
Hello, Punk. I'm so glad you decided to make an appearance.
Now, all the commotion has Chloe's attention. Why not introduce her as well?
We were busted. Game over.
Angry landlord expected back pay from us for all the months we had skipped out on the pet deposit, but since we couldn't pay it, he told us we could not continue our lease after the end of the month...only two weeks away.

2023.06.08 17:03 Blitz1293 'Woke' media: it's pros, it's cons, and it's legacy effort(?) Post.
This will mostly be me getting my thoughts out there, and I kind of want to get DGGs opinion on this, because I don't find a lot of people who share my perspective, I feel people as with most things lately, are torn between two extremes and I am somewhere in the middle. I'll be charitable with my definition as I don't think it's inherently bad, but I do think it's important to define it. I would define so called 'woke' media as music, television, movies or any other popular art that has strong or intrinsic progressive themes, or inspiration.
So for instance, Endgame is not woke. It has woke moments but that's really as far as it goes. Contrast that with another movie that I think is great (and I assume most of DGG agrees) and that's Everything, Everywhere, All at Once. It has a very progressive fabric, and clearly the people who made it had a progressive bend. I'm pointing that out because I think that's a fantastic movie, and properties like it are phenomenal, and buck the conservative narrative of "Go woke go broke". Not that I think many DGGers, or Destiny agree with that.
Now let's look at some bad 'Woke' things that came out semi-recently. The one that sticks out to me that is kind of personally upsetting is Rings of Power. I would say RoP wasn't bad because it's woke, it's bad because it's not well written, or particularly well acted or directed. It doesn't have much internal logic, characters are bafflingly stupid, and it's pretentious on top of all that. You could say Galadriel is bad because she's woke, but I would say she's just the female version of thousands of male characters who were supremely competent, and all their obvious flaws were either ignored or treated as strengths. I'm a huge Tolkien buff which is why this one in particular stings, but again I don't think the show was bad because it was woke, it was bad because of a myriad of poor creative decisions. Random Film Talk
on YouTube did a pretty thorough breakdown of the shows structural flaws.
The other that always comes to mind that I think is bad EXPLICITLY because of how 'Woke' it is, was The Woman King. This movie is the exact opposite of Rings of Power. It's acted, directed, and shot well, and ignoring the historical inaccuracies, it's written well. However, as someone who is interested in history, this movie is the equivalent of Song of the South, or Gods and Generals. It is so offensively ahistorical it almost seems malicious. It makes heroes out of the slavers
, rewriting history to make them seem like scrappy underdogs who were fighting against oppression (they weren't) and also make no mention of other attrocities that were committed by the Dahomey Empire, like FGM. But at least there was loads of girl boss energy. For another example, see Netflix's recent Cleopatra series. Both also engage in a really annoying trend of women only being empowered by basically becoming men. They can't be powerful in their femininity, they have to be masculine.
All that being said, it feels like we are at the peak of this artistic trend. I don't think it will go away, nor should it as I have said I don't think it's inherently bad. But I would also be lying if I said it wasn't getting a little obnoxious. Maybe I'm a little cynical because of how corpratized it's become, which makes it feel insincere.
I'm curious to get DGGs thoughts on this, and what your read of 'Woke' media is. Do you think it's a trend doomed to die? Do you think it will keep going until every character is a strong, non-binary, polyamorous, bi-bracial lesbian? How do you feel about 'woke' themes? Do you agree that it's more about how it's handled on the creators part? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.

2023.06.08 17:03 InternalGuess1827 My all time favorites
Okay, so I've been reading/playing hosted and COH games since... 2019 ig? The first one was ' Life of a Mercenary ' and the one to really drag me into this was ' The Great Tournament ' but well, they don't exactly come into my favs even though they are absolutely amazing reads. So here are are my all time favs ( legends in my opinion)
1) Samurai of Hyuga
The first book just made me addicted to it, making me yearn for more. The second and third were very pretty hard for me ( especially third) mentally, cuz I just HATE helpless MCs who can't do shit. The world building was top notch, it was gritty and it was real, it felt real, sure sometimes I felt that why does my MC is always being treated as some cusion bag for tragedies but the way the MC grew from being a sell sword to a protective dad sort of person was just too cute to ignore. Also, I love Junko, I just have a thing for ROs that are suffering and are possessive.... So yeah.. 😅😅. And well, the climax of book 4 pretty much gave me depression 😀, book 5 also felt like drinking some really shitty drink but like you're trying to desperately forget something so you just keep going on. Well, I'm desperately waiting for the next serving of that drink. Also, this is the game that got me into anime. I heard that this game got it's idea from rurouni kenshin, so I went ahead and watched the OVA ' Trust and Betrayal ' and well.... Ig now I'm an anime enthusiast now as well ig 😅😙.
2) The Grim and I
I've only played this once and I'm never gonna replay this. Never could I have imagined that an after death experience could be this dreadful and suffocating. I've literally speed read the last chapters and simply deleted it afterwards and then proceeded to brush my teeth while pondering about my existence. Art is not always sunshines and rainbows, sometimes it dark and gritty. And this writer has succeeded in conveying that to me.
3) Creatures such as we
Idk why I feel so .... Different about this, this whole game felt more like a dream to me as if I was walking on clouds, uncertain, and not quite knowing what to feel or when to feel. The whole tone of the game was.... Sombre, as if the very air that the MC was breathing was stale, even uncomfortable at times, but it didn't fail to show us the bright side when I felt happy, just... Happy. Also, I didn't play this game ever again.
4) I, The forgotten One
The latest in this list, I absolutely loved this even though sometimes I had to feel a lot of grief and all but hey you gotta sacrifice something if you wanna experience art 😙🥲😭😂, but yeah, I absolutely loved it. The thing that I loved the most being the slow burn romance btw the MC and the aristocrat.
For now, that's all that I have in this list of ' legendary ' I've ought to have created a tier list of all the books I've read but nah, I'm too lazy to do that. Well, that's all, just wanted to share this with y'all. P.s. - your opinions might differ with mine, just know that I respect your opinion 😌😌.
