2023.06.10 20:32 DuncanStudios2000 I'm laughing my ass off at this!!

So I had an AI make an informal version of a part of my book were tie group is attacked by Death Eaters (wingless dragons), and honestly this is better than my version!
Well, well, well, what do we have here? A group of heroes getting their butts handed to them by a drake. And let me tell you, it's not a pretty sight. One guard is crawling towards them, screaming for help like a little baby. The commander runs out to save him, but it's too late. The drake has already ripped off his arm and is chowing down on it like it's a Thanksgiving turkey.
Now, I know what you're thinking. "What should I do if I ever encounter a drake?" Well, first of all, don't get near a Death Eater. That's just asking for trouble. But if you do find yourself face to face with one of these beasts, don't panic. Stay calm and still. They can sense fear, you know.
Anyway, back to the action. The drake finishes its meal and saunters off like it's no big deal. Meanwhile, our heroes lay there for a while to make sure no other Death Eaters are lurking around. Smart move, guys.
In conclusion, if you're going to mess with a drake, you better be prepared to lose an arm or two. And if you see a Death Eater, well, you probably deserve it.

2023.06.10 20:32 OutlandishnessOk3245 Swelling won’t go down after 3-4 weeks.

Hi, I had my 4 wisdom teeth taken out 3-4 weeks ago and had a lot of swelling. After 2 weeks, the right side of my face went down however the left didn’t. I was told everything was okay and that I could go back to college after a check up. However it’s nearly 4 weeks and the left side of my face still has a grape-sized swelling despite the other side being fully healed. I don’t feel any pain, I’m just concerned whether or not it might be an infection of its normal.
Please let me know what I should do or if there’s any way to treat it myself as all the dentistry offices are closed for the weekend.

somehow I lost all of my progress?? help please
I saved the game as usual, closed the app and put my phone in my pocket. After an hour I opened ark again and now I no longer have my tames (they are still in their "cages" tho), my map progress, all my bases are "blocked" (I have no access to fridges, doors, or anything). However my character level is still the same along with my engrams and stats. I'm sure I didn't click "create new character". I had high level argys, spinos, lots of farming hours... nearly 350 days and everything is gone. I'm speechless.
can someone help me please? has this happened to anyone else?

2023.06.10 20:30 OrneryEffective9951 Help! flying monday and need advice about carrying my gel

So i travelled into the UK for the first time last year with nearly a 6 month supply of injectable testosterone and needles, the only stop that i got in regards to this was at the chicago airport where the TSA agent gave it a cursory glance and passed me through. I had a ton of proper documentation and medical records.
I’m heading back to america for a couple of weeks and am now on tostran. I have a nearly empty bottle of that which i am planning on packing into my hand luggage, along with a pump of testogel that i had to get because my tostran is due to run out while i’m there and i was unable to get more due to shortages. I was planning on packing the testogel into my checked baggage.
Both have their original boxes, which have my full name printed on them on a label. the tostran has my gp address and signature, the testogel only has the address of the pharmacy i picked it up at (boots) and the original bag from boots (also labeled with my name)
is this going to be an issue? i don’t have have a doctors note as detailed on the website because i was stupid and didn’t get it before the gp closed for the weekend. will i encounter issues or is the way i plan to pack it going to be ok?

2023.06.10 20:30 winol5 Am I the only one that likes Oleato?

I was a fan of Starbucks innovation 10 years ago when I was in college and it was my main source of food.
Then, I moved to Seattle and started enjoying smaller coffee shops, and the occasional reserve beverages when I wanted something new.
For me, as a customer, oleato has been the innovation I needed to go back to Starbucks regularly (there are a lot of regular locations near me that offers it).
Funnily enough, I have IBS which means that I have stomach problems very often, and yes, coffee did trigger them for me. However, oleato for whatever reason causes me less, or same trips to the restroom (same for my non-ibs friends)
Do I think it's for everyone? Of course not, nothing is. Do I think baristas should be forced to try it? Of course not, that's a stupid policy. I'll help defend your right to say no.
Do I enjoy all the Oleato beverages? Not really, I don't like the cold ones. But the oat milk latte is by far my favorite drink these days at Starbucks, the texture is great and the olive oil complements the oat flavor.
So.... Am I one of the very few that actually enjoys it?

2023.06.10 20:28 Equivalent_Current_3 How to put yourself out there?

In an effort to meet new people and hopefully start dating, I know I need to put myself out there.
I am 25M. I work 8 to 10 hours a day so that only leaves evenings to get out there.
Mon - Bible study
Tues/Thurs - Climb with friends
Wed - Chores
Fri - either dinner with friends at a pub (I dont drink personally) or a walk in a local nature area/park.
Weekends - Im usually doing something. Skiing, climbing, going to the farmers market, I recently joined a volleyball group which I found through friends.
I have also asked friends if they know of anyone but that always turns up dry so I dont ask that often.
So beyond what I do, what do people mean by "put yourself out there"? What else can I do? I am social and friendly whenever I meet people. But no one really seems to notice me, or notice that I am single. Even if I try to flirt and ask girls out. On top of that it seems that no one else is single. Like today I went to the local farmers market and everyone near my age was holding a kid or with their partner.
Please dont mention online dating. I have tried that extensively but never got any matches so I have given that up.

2023.06.10 20:27 FrederickCombsworth TIFU by forgetting and having to carry around my client's body fluids for the entire weekend

So this actually happened yesterday but I hope it still counts. Since it's against the rules to include the specific word for the fluid, I will describe it as 'yellow body fluid'. You know what I mean.
I work as a professional in a niche field covering social work/probation. Part of my job is to take body fluid samples from clients that have problems with addiction and criminal behaviour. We do this to check recent alcohol/drug intake (I assume you can imagine they're not always honest about that). We do sometimes visit people at home, and then go back to the office to process the fluids and have it sent to a laboratory.
Yesterday, friday afternoon, I met a client at home and took a fluid sample. Went back to the office and joined my coworkers in their pre-weekend enthusiasm. Finished work quickly and left for a few drinks with friends. As soon as I arrived home and unpacked my bag I realised my mistake.
So yeah, I now have someone's fluids lying in my fridge, right next to my groceries. Since I will stay at a friend over the weekend, I will actually need to carry it around for the entire evening as we decided to meet up at a restaurant tonight. Afterwards I will have to kindly ask her if I can store my client's fluids in her fridge and after the weekend I will have to actually carry it back to the office to process it. At this point I don't even know if the quality if good enough to still process it so I might as well carry it around for nothing.
TL;DR: took a yellow body fluid sample from my client. Forgot to process it, now I need to carry it with me until next week.

2023.06.10 20:27 ShadowAssassin96 Recommendation for Commuter Scooter

Looking for a Scooter to use on my commute so I can stop renting Spin/Lime/Bird whenever I got into the office 3 days a week. Work is in SF, so I drive to a Caltrain station and ride the train to the last stop closest to my office, and from there I ride 1.5 miles to the office one way, usually takes about 7 minutes, so a 3-mile total commute on the scooter at the end of the day. And unlike the norm for SF there's really only 1 hill I need to deal with that is not particularly steep, so I don't think I need a dual motor. No plans to ride it elsewhere in SF, and near my home it's far more flat. From there, I need to carry the scooter into the office with me.
I was looking into the Segway Ninebot D18w originally, but seen a lot of comments here saying its not particularly good. I was also looking at the Ninebot G30LP or the Niu KQI2 if I could find a good deal on either of them, but slightly concerned about their portability for carrying on the train and into the office given their weight.
Other scooters I've been looking into are others I've seen commuters around me riding recently: Unagi, Volpam, Isinwheel.
Anyone have any good recommendations? Are the G30LP or the KQI2 more portable/easier to carry than they seem? Is the D18W not as bad as a lot of posts on this sub seem to make it out to be? Trying not to spend over $500 if I can help it.

2023.06.10 20:27 Broken_Oxytocin Could I have SIBO and/or other gut problems induced by Covid?

I googled SIBO, and a few of my symptoms lined up for the condition. Yet, when I visited my doctor, he said I “didn’t qualify” to take the SIBO test as if it’s some kind of fucking off-limits procedure.
I currently have: -No appetite (near constant) -Random bloating (infrequent) -Never taking a dump or taking 5 in one day (near constant) -Dull aches (infrequent) -Weird, soft looking stool (half of the time) -When I get full I feel like throwing up (half of the time)
Could this be anxiety making me feel nauseous (what my dipshit, fat cunt doctor incessantly proposed), or is it some form of gut dysregulation? I’m leaning on the fact that it might be SIBO, but what do you guys believe it might be?

2023.06.10 20:27 Speeda2 Struggling hard to get stylish ranks as Dante

I'm trying to get S ranks on the main story, but for some reason I cannot for the life of me get good ranks as Dante. The highest I've gotten in combat is around 3.5k style points, whereas I can get 5-6k, sometimes even 7k easily as Nero and Vergil. I've got a lot of time on Vergil, but Dante seems worlds harder to even crack 4k style each combat scenario. I can't even get S ranks on goddamn Devil Hunter.
Are there moves I'm missing out on that'll really help me out, like Judgement Cut giving basically free style for nothing? I really wanna start getting good ranking with him, but it seems near impossible compared to the other 3. I appreciate all the help I get here

2023.06.10 20:26 Hi_Her My birthday was the worst

The only saving grace was the lemoncello cake my SO bought for my twin and I (who was also my best support that day because she hates our day just as much).
My dad is a crazy narcissistic sociopath. I have cut contact with him over 12 years ago and he is all 'woe is me' about it to anyone who listens. I dont want to get into my whole life story so the TL;DR is that when I was 11 my parents divorced after my mom defended herself after he attempted to beat her because she got mad at him when she found out he was cheating on her their entire relationship. It was a messy divorce and he is still with the same woman. This woman served me the divorce papers which I didn't know what it was, and it broke me seeing my mom break down after opening the envelope. He never called or visited or let us know where he lived (my twin and I). The only person who knew was my brother. He was my dad's Golden child. Let's say my brother is the type of guy who stole $10,000 as a teen and got away with it, crashed every car he owned and got another within the same week. Lived with my mom until 27 and when he bought his first house told my mom she isn't welcome to ever stay there while allowing his wife's parents to live with them. My dad is also the type of man to use 'inheretance' as an attempt at controlling us our entire lives.
Ok sorry that was so long. But that's the jist of it. So I cut contact with my dad and brother after I had a suicide attempt when i was like, 24 because i was in chronic pain and every doc kept saying it was in my head. The same docs were upset that I took their words literally. How else was I supposed to take it when that's all you say?
Anyways... When I reached out for support my dad said 'what do you expect from me? go find another man to take care of you' and my brother told me to never come near him or his family until I get over myself.
After a decade I stupidly went LC with my brother in attempt to rekindle a relationship. It was going ok until yesterday.
My dad always tries to call and text me to say happy birthday. He never responds to me when I reply. I asked for an apology from him as a birthday present. I've tried talking to my brother about it, I ask him why he never responds. He says he doesn't want to get involved. I said it would be nice to have my older brother stand up for me for once in my life. He responds, basically saying he is sick of my drama with dad, the drama I created between us (brother and I) and if I can't accept everything for what it is, he has nothing to say to me anymore, he's got his own shit to deal with.
I didn't respond to him but I got so angry I somehow shattered a ring off my finger when I slammed my hand down on my coffee table after reading his text message.
Have fun with dad's 'inheretance' while you take care of his stubborn, alcoholic, and demented mind and body as he ages.
Fuck you dad. Fuck you bro. Fuck you Bo for ruining my young mind when you served ME legal documents that dhould have went straight to my mother. You fucking bitch ass cunt couldnt ever face my mom. Stop ruining my life. The exit is stage left. You will never hear or see from me ever again. Setting my phone to block any incoming calls or messages unless they are in my phone book (thanks new phone features), and both your numbers are on the block list you useless shits who aren't even good enough for fertilizer.
Thank you for attending my therapy session. I apologize for my anger. I'm so fucking angry and I'm sorry if it triggers anyone.

2023.06.10 20:25 leeatutk How to get my 6 month old golden to sleep past 4:55 am?

How to get my 6 month old golden to sleep past 4:55 am?
Gus was doing great up until last month. He is crate trained and usually slept until 7-ish each morning. He would vocalize, but not bark, to let me know that he was up and needed to go out. However, the last 30 days have been a doozy. He was boarded for 3 days and later tested positive for coccidia. I'm not sure if he picked up the habit of barking in the morning from his stay at the boarding place or if it was due to the diarrhea, but it needed to be taken seriously, even at 2 am. The vet gave us meds so he's feeling better, but he continues to wake up before 5 each day with incessant barking. I've tried to wait it out, but he can keep it up for nearly 2 hours. It's also worth noting that we moved last week and he's having to get used to the new place, but at this point, I just need the old Gus back. Any suggestions?

2023.06.10 20:21 Generic_Username_321 Sweaty Hands & My Dermadry Journey

Just started using Dermadry and I'm going to try and update this every other day to help keep me on track and using it as frequently as I am supposed to because I'm bad about sticking to a routine. This may be more for myself than anything, but if someone else finds it useful, even better. I'll try and format it by sections so you can just read the parts you're interested in.
Dermadry Treatment:
Using the "Upgraded version" with the rubbery bottom mat, and hexagonal grid top mat. I am using bottled water at room temp, however, I have read others using different types of water, and even adding chemicals to the water. For now, I will stick with bottled water, and depending on the results in 2 months, I may change it up.
6/10/23 - 10:00 AM Treatment 1: I used ~250ml of room temp bottled water in each tray. Set the current strength to 5mA to just feel it out (1-15mA is recommended). For the first couple of minutes, I couldn't feel anything, but as we approached the 15min mark I could feel a slight tingling and my hands were a little itchy. The biggest surprise came at the 15min, 10min, and 5min mark (I think). The voltage readout displayed "L5" and I felt a shock strong enough to make my forearms spasm and tense up. It wasn't painful, just a weird feeling, and I assume this has to do with its rotating current phases. Their website states "L5 will be displayed when the tension is lower than 5 volts." I don't know what that means, but I will contact customer support about it. My hands were a bit sweaty after I finished up, and the itchiness was gone after a few minutes, but after an hour my hands dried up a bit and have been completely dry for several hours. I plan on doing it again at 5mA tomorrow and then give it a day of rest before upping the voltage up to 7 or 8mA.
Background: I'm in my late 20s and have suffered from sweaty hands for as long as I can remember. I would say I have it moderate during most of the day, but in social situations, it can go up to a 10 in severity. I'm talking wiping my hands with a paper towel over 10min will completely soak it through. At its worst, I can clench my fist and literally have beads of sweat run off. I get a bit self-conscious in social situations, but I wouldn't say I have bad social anxiety. But it's this slight nervousness that really sets off my sweaty hands.
Improvised treatments: I started out trying to dry my hands with harsh chemicals on a few occasions when I knew I had a social event of some sort that would involve shaking hands. I would soak my hands in brake cleaner or rubbing alcohol as I work with them and had it lying around. Alcohol would just dry it for a bit, but sweating would come back 10-fold within 30min after. Brake cleaner lasted a while longer, but is absolutely terrible for your skin, your health, etc. Please for the love of god, DO NOT use brake cleaner, I was young and stupid and it only worked for a few hours at a time. I also tried wearing latex gloves during my entire time working as it caused me to sweat a bunch and would get my hands to sweat so much, that sometimes it would prevent me from sweating further the rest of the day. This kind of worked, but my work environment has changed, and working in latex gloves now would just make people think I was a psycho. My final attempt was to just get healthy. For a whole year, I dropped almost all caffeine, drank nothing but water, and dietary/workout shakes, worked out and had a diet to match with hardly any dietary cheating. This helped out mostly with social situations, as I wouldn't be near as self-conscious, but I still would get severe sweating during dates, big meetings, and school tests.
Antiperspirants: I bought some Dove Clinical Strength antiperspirant and used that for a while, applying it before bed, or during the day and letting dry under a fan for 15-30min. This would help for normal day stuff, but the moment anything like a date, or a meeting with a boss occurred, it would be like I hadn't done anything. After about two weeks of on-and-off applications, I switched to trying Certain Dri with the results being about the same. The third product I tried was Sweat Block Wipes which were less effective than the previous ones. Not saying these products aren't good, they just weren't effective for me. The last product I tried was Antihydral, I ordered this at the same time as Dermadry and was by far the best. One application with just enough that you could tell there was a layer on there, and let dry for 15-30min under a fan kept my hands dry for days at a time. I only tried this a couple of times before my Dermadry unit came in, so this is my fallback plan if Dermadry doesn't work. I hear from some users the effectiveness of Antihydral can wear off over time, so I have put that on pause while I just do Dermadry.
Medical treatments: I went to a dermatologist and was prescribed Glycopyrrolate. This would help if taken in high doses, but when I got a new dermatologist he highly advised against taking it in the dosages I was. I still have a lot of it left over, and will still take it before a date or social event. In combination with the antiperspirants, this is still fairly effective but requires planning ahead and remembering to take it. I have fairly good medical insurance, but after talking it over with the doctor, the cost of Botox with the side effects and longevity of the treatment made me put it off as a final Hail Mary if all else fails. Finally, I got Dermadry and that's what I'm starting now, and we will see how this works for me.

2023.06.10 20:21 RelationshipInCrisi My boyfriend (M29) and I (F26) are on the rocks after 12 years

Hi all, TL:DR at bottom. For the first time in my life, I'm thinking of breaking off my relationship with my boyfriend of 12 years. We've been together since highschool, hes been my one and only this entire time. We've built a life together, a house, a dog, cats. My entire adult life has been spent with him. But I'm now not so sure if there's a future for us. We've always had problems. Minor spats here and there, but a big one that's been a point of contention since about 3 years in has been the intimacy. I was just finishing University and we had moved to a new city to be closer to my school and closer to his work. This was hard for him even if it benefitted him because it distanced him from his friends, which he had a real hard time with. This resulted in him using nearly all his free time taking the bus back to hang out with his friends. It was rare he'd be at home with me at all and when he was, he was so hungover from the nights previous with his friends that he couldn't do anything outside the apartment. When I got my license and a car, it became him begging me to drive him, "I'll get home sooner to see you" he'd say, which was true... The bus would take him near 3 hours while me driving him was only 40 minutes. But weekend after weekend of this left me feeling uninterested in having sex, and it dipped to about once a week, where it now still is. We've had loads of arguments regarding my sex drive being low, and how he's missing the connection of being with me physically. I've expressed that I feel like he doesn't make time for me other than to have sex, which always blows up into a big fight about how I don't realize how hard he works to keep this relationship going and how hard to tries to make me happy. Which is mostly true, he busts his ass at work and generally works hard. But I don't personally see the effort in regards to the missing emotional intimacy. This issue pops up periodically, maybe two or three big blowouts about it a year. All this to say, I'm not perfect. Not even close. I've had a terribly hard time being assertive and direct about how I feel which is detrimental to the relationship. I have depressive episodes which makes me a bummer to be around, I often let things fester to the boiling point because I fear confrontation. All this makes me far more agreeable to things I shouldn't be which no doubt hasn't been easy for him to navigate.
Honestly, I started having these doubts years ago. But I wanted to work on them and expected this to get better, especially as I had really started vocalizing my qualms but it seems to have only made things worse. But looking back there were a lot of... Inappropriate things I shouldn't have tolerated but was too young and naive to really act on, such as extreme jealous (male friend touched my hand while hiking to help me up a steep ridge, and he went off the handle saying he doesn't trust me,) he was oblivious to when I developed anorexia, he kept asking if I was gay because I would say no to sex, up until today during our not-enough-intimacy fights. It came to the point where I've been agreeing to sex reluctantly and have been getting more or less no sexual pleasure from it for years to keep the peace while I try to get us to work on my issues,, which I think he knows since there's no foreplay, and he knows I don't usually orgasm during it. Today, I had run out for a couple hours with the puppy to do some errands and chores and had just gotten home. I hadn't yet eaten so I was preparing myself something to eat. He asks if I'd like to have sex, to which I say I'm not feeling it, and I'm making lunch. He suggested afterwards, which I wasn't keen on either. So instead he asked if he could touch me while he gets off, which would mean delaying me making food so again I said no. This launched our trip/quazi-annual fight about lack of intimacy. I tried to explain to him that I need to feel more effort and emotional connection from him to be more open to having more sex. I want to feel important and valued, and like he wants to do things with me outside of watching tv. He proceeded to get really mad and defensive because he does put in effort in the form of finances and working on better his job prospects so we can have a better life. (For context, he makes about the same amount as I do yearly, just so no one assumes there's a breadwinner in this circumstance). It divolved into him angry and upset because he felt I wasn't listening to him, and that I'm basically asking him to forfeit one of the things he likes to do in his very small window of leisure time in order to satisfy me. (Which yes he does have a very narrow window of time, he works out from 8-10, his schedule has him working usually 10-7 WFH, and then he usually has some sort of meal prep which would take him from 7-9, if no meal prep then he'd play bass or read work-related things to improve his employable skills, which leaves me from 9-10 for basically TV). It got relatively heated, not yelling or insulting, on topic but both emotional and upset. I suggested that perhaps every second Saturday, we do a date night. We would alternate who plans the date, and we would each plan a date that we think the other would enjoy. He didn't like that idea at all. Instead he wants me to decide what I want to do as a date, plan it, and then ask if he wants to go. He said if I lead by example then he'll get a better understanding of what's expected and be able to do the same. My problem comes from the fact that this isn't a new suggestion, and this isn't the first conversation we've had about it. And I've done that But nothing comes of it and the cycle repeats. At this point, I'm nearly 30. I feel lonely in my own house, and I'm not sure where to go from here. We are tied together in every way, with the house only being owned by us under a year, three pets under 3, all our assets are together, we've only really dated each other... The implications of even considering breaking things off is daunting and life changing, especially since we live in a HCOL area so we'd both suffer tremendously. But I also can't help but think I'm overreacting to something minor and that it'd be a waste to just...throw this all away. I have no frame of reference for whether or not this is pretty normal stuff, and don't really have anyone in my life I can talk to about this.
So... I guess I wanted to know from others in similar positions what youve done and how it's worked out. Please be as blunt with me as possible. If what I've written screams that I'm the problem and that I need to work on xyz, please say so. If I'm the problem I want to work on it and do better.
Sorry for the wall of text but it felt really good to articulate my thoughts as I've not really done it in this much detail ever.
TL:DR: Boyfriend doesn't make time for me so I don't feel the intimate connection I require to be more sexually intimate. At what point is it no longer worth continuing the relationship?

2023.06.10 20:20 blurryturtle 2023 Roland Garros Men's Finals 🐢

As usual, before a big final, I like to get a little behind the scenes insight. Last time, I got up close and personal with the players, but as a result, a restraining order was issued, so this time, I leveled up and installed some cameras in their hotel rooms. This will give us a first-hand look at their prep for the finals.
Casp-o-vision :
Sunday, June 11th. The clock strikes 6:00AM. Norwegian music begins playing. Casper’s eyes open. “Ahhh Kongesangan,” thinks Casper, “the only choice for brushing one’s teeth”. Casper begins brushing. He is already in the bathroom, where he sleeps standing up to maximize efficiency. He brushes the right side efficiently, and does the best he can on the other. Though these teeth are mainly defensive, they are constantly improving. Casper turns to his coaches, who are sitting in the tub watching him brush. They nod and make fists, the only coaching he has ever received from them. He nods and makes a fist as well. The main coach, whose name he has never learned, hands him a plate of Fårikål, and he begins eating. “Shouldn’t I have eaten this before I brushed my teeth?” he asks, but perhaps the storyteller, like Casper’s team, did not think this through. Still though, Google is very informative. “Boy, I sure do love Oslo,” muses Casper. “And fjords.” Wow, Casper is ready for Roland Garros.
Djokocam :
Sunday June 11th. The clock strikes 6:00AM. Norwegian music begins playing. “Perhaps we should not have been roommates” thinks Novak, as he looks across the room to Casper’s bed. But Casper is not there. Djokovic stretches his impervious to cramps body. He is not in a bed, but gently relaxing on a bed of moss, which grew when he summoned it with warrior one. He eases slowly into chair pose, and a chair appears. Goran quickly sits in it. “Look at my cool new shades!” says Goran. “Very nice, Goran,” says Novak, as he closes his eyes to begin meditating. “You think we can win, Novak?” asks Goran, while swinging his legs excitedly in the chair. “Yes, Goran,” answers Novak. “Can you believe they eat snails here?” asks Goran, while pretending his hand is an airplane. “Yes, Goran,” answers Novak. “Would you ever eat a snail?” asks Goran, while pretending he is an airplane. “Yes, Goran,” answers Novak. “Wow,” says Goran. His friend Novak is so cool.
Casper emerges from the bathroom, and Djokovic heads in. There are crumbs in the sink, and Ruud’s team shake their fists and nod at him as he begins combing his hair. Novak shakes his head. He is ready for Roland Garros.
Men’s Singles Final :
There is something about Casper Ruud’s game that makes it seem like he is not doing anything special. He is ultra-consistent, and he makes the right choices in almost every situation, but his disciplined approach can make a player like Zverev or Rublev seem like they are on another level. Ruud has made two Grand Slam finals already (both last season), but was summarily written off before they began, suffering defeat at the hands of Carlos Alcaraz at the US Open, and Rafael Nadal at Roland Garros. Here again, he is being given very slim chances by most people. When you do everything right (by the book), there is a sense that you become predictable, and the greats of the game have excellent situational awareness. If they can move early to your shots, you’re not going to get many errors from them. It makes this a very uphill battle for him, because Novak Djokovic is a player that is unlikely to be rattled by the classic patterns and approaches to the game, and is one of the most consistent players the tour has ever seen. Once he gets in a rhythm, you’re playing a tennis game set to expert, so Casper will need to elevate his aggression here.
Ruud will thankfully be fresh for the finals, but after watching the Alcaraz demise it’s hard to gauge how long that will last. Him being a bit older does give him a bit more stamina and experience, and he had a fairly quick match against Zverev. He’s also done this before, so I think physically he is ready to go 5 sets. Thinking, though, isn’t it always the cause of our blunders. Zverev looked competitive in parts of their match, but he is not at the top level of the game yet. His ceiling is, but where does his ceiling lurk? Ruud is nearly robotic out there. You know he is going to execute and move the ball well and his defensive skills are solid enough to make his opponent play several shots to win a point. It’s the discipline he has that allows him to do this regardless of the stage and the opponent. Zverev, on the other hand, is very much thinking out there. When he has a setup, it’s very up in the air what he should do. He’s often creating angles and situations that he is only going to play 1-2 of per match, and it leads to errors as he second-guesses and hesitates on shots (especially rough in choosing when and when not to come to net). In truth, he could have wound up deep in the match against Casper, but when Zverev had control or time, he made a lot of unforced errors trying to crack Ruud’s defenses. Despite having a ton of experience on tour, Zverev has not really ironed out his game and since returning from injury, he hasn’t really dealt with a match where he had to play hard every point in order to win. The ability is there, but the repetition of effort is not.
Speaking of repetition of effort, it should be noted what a great adjustment Djokovic made in his semifinal match. He is very frequently a slow starter on clay, but he came out and looked to match Alcaraz’s aggression from the start. It was a very “I’m not going to miss and I want you to know that” approach, and digging in in this manner started to forced Alcaraz to come up with more and more ambitious attempts. They both have a lot of heat on their shots, but Alcaraz is certainly the one swinging harder on the average ball. He started to make errors, but it looked to me like he would wear down Djokovic’s defenses with the onslaught. There have been a number of matches this tournament where the first couple games were furiously played, and eventually one player settled into their role as a defender, or folded up and forced offense until they lost. This didn’t feel like the case here, as both of these players can legitimately expect to hit a high percentage of their shots no matter what style they proceed with. A good example is how a post-cramp, immobile and defeated Alcaraz was able to guide winners off Djokovic’s serve. Not a strategy to win the match, but something that he rarely uses in match-play yet was instantly able to do.
After losing the first set, I still like Alcaraz’s chances. It had become the best type of ATP match, one where the player who is serving doesn’t just automatically win. The great big 3 matchups featured so many breaks and yet those breaks weren’t huge cracks or fails at all, it was just that at the highest level, players can play defense and offense from everywhere on the court. They exchanged breaks late in the 2nd set, and it seemed like Alcaraz’s aggression was finally mentally wearing Djokovic down. Early in the third though, disaster struck in the way that it always seems to when a phenom plays Djokovic at a major. Carlos Alcaraz cramped. Spectacularly. His hand cramped, his calf cramped, and he looked like Medusa slid in his DMs for a moment. Big credit to Djokovic for being bigger than the moment, and coming across the net to express concern and help Alcaraz to his chair. Cramping is something that affects a lot of players on tour, but it was pretty unexpected from Alcaraz. His physical strength is off the charts, and he trains extremely hard. If some combination of nerves and over-exertion really caused this, then it’s a by-product of Djokovic being willing to go toe-to-toe with him right from the start of the match.
There are great nutritionists working on the tour, but once you actually go full-cramp, it is nearly impossible to continue playing tennis. The muscle is in pain, and doesn’t want to fully flex even if you do. In short, you’re fatigued, in pain, and weak. Alcaraz forfeited the game so he could get treatment, but with 2 full sets left against the guy who is leading the GOAT debate currently (and competing against off-tour opponents), you’re pretty much finished. Brave of Alcaraz to finish out the match, and I had some hope that the kid would go full-tank and hydrate to recover for a 4th, but it appeared the damage was irreversible. He stood in on some returns, and while this means that any poor returns leave your court position too shallow to cover both wings of the court, he did show a pretty good ability to utilize this tactic. I’d love to see him do more of this in the future, as the best returners are pretty much hugging the baseline and you need this to win with minimized effort on hardcourt and grass. I’d also add, his deep return position was allowing Djokovic to serve and volley an awful lot, and Novak really was the one scoring off the dropshot in the non-cramp sets so Alcaraz will need to work on some other strategies. A good restful win for Djokovic, and a new wrinkle to the “how high will Alcaraz rise” debate. I don’t think too many people were really expecting cramps (to my knowledge it’s the first time he’s dealt with that on tour), and he had the momentum before they occurred.
One of the best things about majors is how long the players are out there. It allows for so many deviations in strategy and planning. Dumping sets to conserve energy, planning to sprint early then take a set off, and changes in strategy (holding back a bit of pace on serves early or playing frequent dropshots to take your opponents legs) can be really effective. Djokovic got the benefit of an interesting result here. It seemed like his defense was good enough to keep Alcaraz at bay but he wasn’t able to counter-punch. If this was by design, kudos to him and his team for allowing Alcaraz to punch himself out. If it wasn’t, it has at a minimum inspired other players to dig in on defense against Carlos now that they’ve seen the gas tank actually on E, which is tremendous for the tour since we’ve seen a few top guys fold against him already. The names on the trophies are less important than creating an environment where these guys can compete at their freest, because the sport won’t continue to grow unless the product is visibly enticing to the non-tennis public.
Djokovic Ruud should be a great match, the same way Swiatek Muchova was today. Ruud has yet to win a set against Djokovic in his career, but almost every single set has been confined to a single break of serve. That’s largely what I expect here. Ruud is good enough to compete with Djokovic for 75% of the match. Similar to the CA/ND situation that caused the cramps, Ruud is good enough to play Djokovic on even terms, but not really able to get out of trouble once he’s in it. Since Djokovic’s measured approach won’t wear himself out like Alcaraz’s did, this means a long match, with a vaguely assured result. This is good for Ruud for a few reasons. One, he won’t be distracted very often. When you’re going uphill but are a great competitor like Ruud, you don’t get caught up in the “what ifs” of an L or fret changes in the scoreline, you just keep an eye on how you’re doing out there. Trying different approaches, working on the spots you’re losing ground in, and communicating with your box constructively rather than complaining are useful, and keep you in the present moment. That’s a good place to stay for Casper here, because the crowd is very likely to get behind him. Djokovic is a beloved champion, but fans want to see a long match. If Ruud was considered an even contender here, he could almost enter villain territory, as fans would not want to see a great champion dethroned. Since he’s publicly regarded as a plucky underdog, he’ll have plenty of support.
Tennis-wise, the problem here is simple. Djokovic has the best backhand in tennis, and Ruud fights his off. He can create some great angles with it, and hits passes fairly well, but it’s a safe target for Djokovic which means the majority of shots are going to go there. We all saw how devastating a weapon the dropshot and forehand inside-in became for Alcaraz when Tsitsipas attempted to camp in his backhand corner, and I fear that Ruud will have similar issues in this match. This is doubly tricky because Djokovic’s backhand dropshots are much better and much more frequently attempted down the line. Ruud served well against Zverev, but he went out wide from the duece court a lot and Zverev never really punished him for it. Djokovic ropes these shots cross-court very well and he’s good at picking a few spots to up the aggression. If Casper is forced to abandon this serve, it’s a problem because it’s generally the best way to ensure that his second shot is a forehand. He plays well behind the pattern, but great returners (and great teams hello Goran) are likely to notice any significant lean on a particular serve. The odds at -450 indicate that Ruud will be competitive (because basically everyone watching is looking to bet on Djokovic at this point), but this would be the most surprising result that has occurred in tennis in a very long time. I think Ruud wins the same set via steady play and heavy hitting that Khachanov did, but it’s hard to see Djokovic struggling with patterns and opponents that he has already figured out. Djokovic in 4.

2023.06.10 20:19 flashlightmorse Am I insane or is the food in my house unreasonable?

 I am a 17 year old boy who works out. I need to eat a lot. I live alone with my mom who barely eats. She considers an apple and a handful of almonds to be a meal. my house usually has a few fruits and veggies, some eggs, and milk in the fridge, and some oatmeal, rice, and bread in the pantry. We also have some cooking ingredients like flower, sugar, etc. Sometimes there's some meat. I eat around 1200 calories a day. Most of that is a protien shake and milk. My mom takes diet pills(phentermine and andphendimetrazine) I know there always is food, and I *could* eat it, but it never feels "worth it to me". What's the point in having 2 eggs and an apple if I'm just going to be hungry again in 20 minutes? All of the food in my house is "keto" and "low calorie" so it's not very filling. I feel so turned off by food that I eventually just hit a breaking point and walk to the grocery store and buy junk food. At least it satiates me for a few hours. I don't really know what normal adults eat. I'm so hungry all the time. I've started smoking weed just so I can bring myself to eat a loaf of low calorie bread. 
Whenever I complain to my mom about it, she says there is food and I can eat it. And I know she's right but it still feels like she's wrong somehow. I don't know what I'm supposed to do. It feels like I go a few days eating well below matinence and then I snap and just eat junk food. Am I in the wrong? Am I just bad at cooking? I'm not allowed to spend her money on food at the grocery store for myself, and I won't be working again until college. I'm unsure of what I'm supposed to do. According to online calculators I'm supposed to have upwards of 3,000 calories a day. Is that even possible? I don't know if I have 3000 calories worth of food in my home right now. What should I do?

Legal to remove unwanted/unwelcome “tenants” from a home I do NOT own/rent myself?
Tl;dr - best legal way to remove undesired “tenants” from my sisters home?
Sister is currently and lives in a low-income rental with her two kids. She became involved with a guy, who then got evicted from his own residence, and he moved in with my sister, and brought his mother in tow (she was living with him).
When my sister and this guy met, they were both working (how they met), now they’re both unemployed. She lost her job due to some health struggles, not sure about him. She’s a U.S. resident, he is undocumented.
She does not like the guy, but feels trapped. She’s been in and out of the hospital for various reasons, currently sitting with her as she’s coming out of a second surgery in two days. The guy is pretty worthless, sapping her of resources, and using her for shelter, but he IS, at least on paper, an adult in the house. Her kids (my niece and nephew), are 15 and 18, so they CAN take care of themselves for some things, but not everything. The guy doesn’t help her with anything, his mom lives in the basement and DEFINITELY doesn’t help with things, and he frequently brings his nephew* over and stay as well. He doesn’t clean, or get the kids around when they need to be places. He has access to her car, but my folks, who live in the same town, are the default caretakers for them when my sister is down-for the count. My folks are the ones shuttling her kids up to the hospital to see her, getting them to/from work or school, double checking there are groceries in the home.
Nobody likes this guy (sister, her kids, my folks, me), and it’s clear he is a leech. So many of her mental/emotional health struggles got worse once he moved in, and she’s largely been a recluse/shutting out others ever since.
Without wanting to jeopardize anything for heher kids, what can a person do to get an individual(s) removed from a dwelling given the following:
Feeling a little lost, and unsure what to do. My parents are aging so quickly I’m trying to shoulder all of this, and when my sis gets out of the hospital, she’s going to need a good amount of support care for a couple months until she’s on the mend.
We just want this guy and his mess of a life gone - it would be such a relief in terms of the reduction of mental/emotional stress, my sister could actually focus on healing and taking care of herself/her kiddos.
I guess this was a bit of a rant as much as it was an ask for Reddit guidance.
It’s not likely anything will be done until my sister is coherent (she just got out of her second surgery of the week), but I’d like to know what options might be out there?
