2023.06.08 11:07 Particular_Day_6888 Pulled a fast one on Uber

I do Uber Rides and almost never do UberEats delivery. However last night, I was calling it a night, and was heading home. I figured I’d leave the app running, in case I get a good one. Well, whaddyaknow got a UberEats pop up on radar for $50. I’d have to drive 10 miles for pick up, and drop off was pretty close, so I of course took it, because it was well worth the 15 miles.
Then, the fiasco begins. I had already driven 8 miles and was fairly close to the pick up spot (fast food restaurant) when I got a message from the customer saying, “I’m canceling.” I replied back with an easy, “Ok, you’ll probably still be charged for it.” The order didn’t go away on my screen, so I decided to keep heading to the restaurant. As soon as I pull up, customer messaged again saying that the last driver told him that the order had already been picked up by another driver and that he’ll get his money back. I thought to myself, “well that sucks, what a waste of gas, mileage, and time for only $3 if I call support.”
But then, I decided to double check with the restaurant, and asked for the order anyways, since I still have the request up. True enough, they told me that the order was picked up 2 hours ago, and I was the third driver to show up after. Then *light bulb * I told the girl at the counter that it was ok, not her fault yadda yadda, and asked if I can make a personal order. I proceeded to order 1 out of the 3 items on the request, exactly as ordered, which cost me $5, then marked the order as picked up. The customer messaged me again asking if I had the order, and I simply told him that I have what the restaurant gave me, and that they were out of some stuff, so you’d have to report missing after delivery. Dropped off the food, took a picture, and completed delivery. Then immediately bamm, $42 for that trip. Which meant after my $5 investment, I at least made $37 instead of the measly $3 from support. But that’s not it, an hour after, received the “You’ve received a tip!” Message. Customer tipped me $20.
Screw you Uber! And screw you whomever picked up the actual order and ate it!

Why are my strawberries dying?
Any idea why are my stawberries dying? I saved them from a lawnmover at a friend's property, transported them in a bucket (I planted them in the bucket, in the same soil they grew in) and planted them in separate pots (yeah, i know these are plastic bottles, I was not prepared for rescuing so many). But after several days, they started dying, and not from underwatering as I kept checking on them daily. They get about 6 hours of direct sunlight. The ones I left in the bucket as i had no more bottles are doing better, to my surprise

2023.06.08 11:06 Sun_wanderer Woek issued FCA Conduct Rule Breach

The FCA regulate financial service sector in the UK and have 6 rules to ensure future employers have more information on potential employees. If a rule breach is given this stays on a person's file for 6 years
I currently work in a bank and have recently received a disciplinary and they have given me a FCA rule breach because I had customers on hold for too long.
I did appeal both to which a senior manager upheld the disciplinary but decided to drop the FCA rule breach. I thought this was the end of it but months later I get an email saying another department in HR have inspected the case and are now overturning her decision to drop the FCA rule breach so now I'll have one
The conduct rule breach is 'You must pay due regard to the interests of customers and treat them fairly'.
I have just graduated from university with an accounting and finance degree and I believe this will ruin any chance if getting a job. Looking at the FCA definition of this rule I do not believe I have breached it however firms are allowed to Interpret it as they wish. I am relatively young and my workplace knew at this time I was extremely stressed and was struggling as i had a week of work sick due to mental health ( I had been pulling 13 hour work days back to back, whilst caring for my grandparents and attending university so I was run down). I did make them aware of this however they clearly have not considered it.
I did not even know these FCA conduct rules existed and now I have supposedly broken one which could ruin my life. I am not with a union so I couldn't get anyone to come to my meetings but could I look into paying a solicitor or someone to look into this and potentially force my workplace to drop it?

2023.06.08 11:05 facetime010101 Enfamil Nutramigen Infant Formula, Hypoallergenic and Lactose Free Formula

Enfamil Nutramigen Infant Formula, Hypoallergenic and Lactose Free Formula

Caution: It's important to remember that these evaluations are guides to potential health concerns and not definitive measures of a product's safety or efficacy. They are based on individual ingredients rather than any negative effects the final product may have. The way ingredients interact in a formulation can influence their potential impact, and the presence of a specific ingredient does not automatically equate to harm when used in a product. It's always crucial to do your own research, consider the product as a whole, and keep in mind that personal reactions can vary greatly. When making decisions about personal care products, it is recommended to consult with healthcare professionals.

Brief: This formula predominantly contains corn syrup solids and vegetable oils, used as carbohydrate and fat sources respectively. However, corn syrup as a leading ingredient could contribute to excessive sweetness and long-term health concerns. It also features Casein Hydrolysate, denoting it's hypoallergenic and suitable for babies with milk allergies. The inclusion of probiotics like Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG promotes gut health. Always consult with a pediatrician before introducing a new formula, especially in cases of allergy, metabolic disorders or prematurity. Also, note that palm oil can affect calcium absorption in some infants.


Typical ingredients description and side effects

  • Zinc Sulfate
    • Zinc sulfate is a mineral that is frequently used in dietary supplements and baby formulas. Zinc is an essential nutrient that supports various body functions, including immune function, protein synthesis, wound healing, DNA synthesis, and cell division. It's particularly important for babies as they grow and develop.
    • Potential Side Effects:
      • Gastrointestinal Issues: Excessive intake of zinc can cause gastrointestinal issues such as vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramps.
      • Zinc Toxicity: While rare, severe overconsumption can lead to zinc toxicity, with symptoms including loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and headaches. Long-term excessive intake could potentially interfere with the body's absorption of other essential minerals like copper and iron.
    • EWG Skin Grade: 6

  • Manganese Sulfate
    • Manganese sulfate is a mineral that's often used in dietary supplements and food products, including baby formula. Manganese is an essential nutrient that supports many body functions, including bone development, metabolism, and brain function. As of my knowledge, manganese sulfate is generally considered safe in the quantities typically found in food and formula, but excessive intake can lead to adverse effects
    • Potential Side Effects:
      • Neurological Effects: High levels of manganese exposure have been associated with neurological issues, but this is generally associated with environmental exposure (like inhaling manganese dust), not dietary intake.
      • Interference with Iron Absorption: Manganese can interfere with the absorption of iron. This is generally not a problem with the levels of manganese found in baby formula, but it could potentially be an issue with very high levels of intake.
      • Digestive Issues: As with any mineral, consuming excessive amounts could potentially cause digestive issues like nausea or diarrhea.
    • EWG Skin Grade: 3

  • Ferrous Sulfate
    • Ferrous sulfate is a type of iron supplement that's often added to baby formulas. Iron is an essential nutrient that's necessary for the production of hemoglobin, a protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. It's also worth noting that some infants may have difficulty absorbing iron from supplements like ferrous sulfate, which can potentially lead to issues such as iron deficiency anemia. However, most infants can absorb and utilize the iron in baby formula without issue.
    • Potential Side Effects:
      • Gastrointestinal Issues: These can include nausea, constipation, diarrhea, or stomach upset.
      • Iron Toxicity: Though very rare and typically associated with accidental ingestion of iron supplements, iron toxicity can be serious, causing symptoms like dizziness, rapid heartbeat, rapid breathing, fever, and in severe cases, can lead to organ damage.
      • Interference with Nutrient Absorption: Excessive iron can interfere with the absorption of other nutrients, such as zinc.
    • EWG Skin Grade: 4

  • Sodium Selenite
    • Sodium selenite is a form of selenium, an essential mineral required for a variety of biological functions. It is sometimes used in infant formula to ensure that babies get an appropriate amount of this nutrient. Selenium plays several important roles in the body. It's a key component of various enzymes and proteins, many of which are involved in protecting cells from damage. It also supports a healthy immune system, aids in DNA production, and is involved in thyroid hormone metabolism. However, like all nutrients, selenium needs to be consumed in appropriate amounts. Both too much and too little selenium can be harmful.
    • Potential Side Effects:
      • Selenium Toxicity (Selenosis): Although it's rare, consuming too much selenium over time can lead to selenosis. Symptoms might include gastrointestinal upset, hair loss, white blotchy nails, garlic breath odor, fatigue, irritability, and mild nerve damage.
      • Interference with Other Nutrients: High levels of selenium can interfere with the absorption of other essential nutrients, like zinc.
    • EWG Skin Grade: 10

  • Choline Chloride
    • Choline chloride is a form of choline, which is an essential nutrient important for a number of bodily functions, including brain development and nerve function. It's typically added to infant formula to ensure that babies get adequate amounts of this nutrient, as it's naturally present in breast milk. While choline is generally safe and necessary for proper health, consuming too much can lead to side effects, although these are not typically a concern at the levels present in infant formula.
    • Potential Side Effects:
      • Gastrointestinal Distress: Consuming large amounts of choline may cause nausea, vomiting, increased salivation, and increased sweating.
      • Fishy Body Odor: In rare cases, excess choline can lead to a condition called trimethylaminuria, or "fish odor syndrome." This condition causes a person to produce a body odor that smells like fish, due to the body's inability to properly break down a compound produced from choline.
      • Lower Blood Pressure: There's some evidence that high doses of choline can cause a drop in blood pressure.
      • Increased Risk of Cardiovascular Disease: Some forms of choline are converted in the body to a molecule called trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO), which has been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease.
    • EWG Skin Grade: 3

  • Vitamin A Acetate
    • Vitamin A Acetate, also known as retinyl acetate, is a form of vitamin A that's often added to food products, including infant formula, due to its essential role in supporting vision, the immune system, and overall growth and development. It's generally safe for use in such products, but as with any nutrient, too much can lead to adverse effects. It's important to note that these side effects are generally associated with excessive intake over a prolonged period, not normal dietary consumption.
    • Potential Side Effects:
      • Vitamin A Toxicity (Hypervitaminosis A): This can occur if an infant is given too much Vitamin A over a long period of time. Symptoms can include nausea, dizziness, blurred vision, and even hair loss in severe cases. However, it is extremely rare and typically associated with over-supplementation, not food sources.
      • Birth Defects: Consuming extremely high levels of Vitamin A during pregnancy can potentially lead to birth defects. However, this is not relevant to baby formula but rather a concern for pregnant women.
      • Interactions with other nutrients: High levels of Vitamin A can interfere with the absorption and utilization of other vitamins, such as Vitamin D and Vitamin K.
    • EWG Skin Grade: 9

  • Tocopheryl Acetate
    • Tocopheryl Acetate is a form of vitamin E that is often added to baby formula, skincare products, and various other products. Vitamin E is an essential nutrient known for its antioxidant properties. It plays a crucial role in protecting cells from damage, supporting immune function, and promoting healthy skin and eyes. In the context of baby formula, tocopheryl acetate is generally safe and unlikely to cause side effects when consumed at levels that are within the recommended dietary allowances for infants. However, like any nutrient, it could potentially cause side effects if consumed excessively.
    • Potential Side Effects:
      • Bleeding: Vitamin E has mild anticoagulant properties, meaning it can prevent blood clots. While this is typically a good thing, in large amounts, it could potentially increase the risk of bleeding.
      • Nausea, Diarrhea, Stomach Cramps: Some people may experience digestive upset from consuming too much vitamin E.
      • Rash: Some individuals may have a skin reaction to topical use of tocopheryl acetate, though this is less relevant for its presence in baby formula
    • EWG Skin Grade: 3

The grading system used by EWG in the Skin Deep database is as follows:
1 to 2: Low hazard
3 to 6: Moderate hazard
7 to 10: High hazard

2023.06.08 11:05 Homegrown_Hooligan Ashlea Funds

Does anyone else get the ick by Ashlea literally doing her own funds for unis and lions? Like surely the point in doing a fund is that the receiver isn’t meant to know?
Like last night she was literally doing a uni fund where she collected the money and then sent it to her mod and now there’s a lion one. People were asking who the uni is for and she goes ‘it’s for me’
There was someone who dropped a uni and the ‘agreement’ so she called it was that they would drop the uni and the rest of the viewers had to ‘match it’ and drop another.
Fund after fund after fund this girl. What a team you have having to keep organising your own funds 🤡

2023.06.08 11:04 bitchinwitchy Witnessed strange lights

Witnessed strange lights
Back at the end of last year I had a series of weird things happen that I’m trying to process/get some insight on. It started a few months after I began experimenting with magic mushrooms. I had taken a fair amount of mushrooms before these events happened and hadn’t experienced anything out of the ordinary even taking probably close to 7 grams in a period of 2 hours or so - and did not have too heavy of a trip) I decided to start dosing before work which I figured would be chill as (like I said) I had already experimented and did not get visuals or feel particularly out of control. In fact it felt like I was a lot more in tune with my surroundings even driving and stuff.
With that said, I started taking about 1 gram or so every couple days and around this time is when I met Sue - a homeless woman who would come into our coffee shop almost daily while I was barista-ing. I was immediately intrigued by her and we became fast friends. She told me she was 67, half miwok Indian, half polish, and she was always dressed in a colorful outfit, beautiful rings, with her nails painted. She’d tell me about her tarot readings and we’d share a cigarette while I was on break. It was clear when I met her she probably had some type of mental illness going on because she would sometimes talk loudly about arch angel michael, money from god, and things that didn’t make a lot of sense to me, but I tried to remain open minded and curious with her. I even offered her mushrooms but she refused saying she had “enough spiritual stuff going on in her life.”
One day, after a particularly interesting conversation with Sue, I disappeared off to run an errand for my boss, when I came back Sue was gone and my boss handed me a tattered book. it was “A Life in Drama” a biography on Shakespeare or something of the like, and the outside of the book was covered in cryptic pen drawings like I’d never seen before. There was an inscription “June Sue I learn from you!” Which immediately brought me back to the first day I met her. She had drawn me and I had told her loved that I loved her name - she told me I should add it to my name and I agreed with her.
“your guardian anglebirth” it read. And there was a sparrow hawk, trees, a ship all sort of in abstract pen drawing. On the front, in small ink, less than an inch, there was an almost abstract looking shape and in the center was the word “love” - she never told me what the shape was as she didn’t remember drawing it but later my therapist suggested it as a picnic basket. Anyway, a few days later I went and had it tattooed on my arm because I loved it.
I was in the process of quitting my job around this time so I wasn’t seeing Sue as often which prompted me to think about when to go visit her. I was in no hurry to show her, I knew when the time was right I would go.
A few afternoons later, after taking about a gram of mushrooms I bought 200$ worth and then went to see her. It was around this time that day I started hearing voices I thought at the time were god and the mushrooms themselves.
It’s been a while since this all happened so my memory is a bit blurry, though I did write down most of what happened shortly thereafter. Anyways, there was something about Sue that I trusted. I really wanted to show her my mushrooms so I took her to my trunk. All I remember is sitting in the back of the trunk with her and all of a sudden these crazy lilac purple lights start shining down on me like I’m on a stage? This is in broad daylight on the street. I remember there was like a little noise they made I think, and it felt like i was in the twilight zone. It was so bizarre - I’ve never experienced anything remotely like it. And the only place they really shown down on was my face and neck (where I had lots of acne). As I’m like, what the fuck is going on Sue looks over and says something along the lines of “many gifts are coming to you.” ( like I said, never experienced ANY visions before and having Sue acting like she saw the light too makes me feel like something weird is going on. )
Later on back in her tent all of a sudden I start experiencing the most insane pain but it’s not physical. To this day I don’t know how to describe it but I was deeply uncomfortable to the point where I am SCREAMING in this woman’s tent and she’s telling me to quiet down so the cops don’t come and commit me. After that she gave me water, food, and it kind of felt like she could read my mind which is a phenomena I experienced a lot the next few days. Everything I needed she provided. I was completely depleted and weak. She was yelling at mysterious powers saying “earthangel June (me) does not deserve this!!” She told me I had been divinely poisoned by the mushrooms because I had not blessed them before ingesting them. Later that night she also tells me that her tarot cards told her a young woman would come to visit her and that I was she.
I slowly came down a bit. Sue offered for me to spend the night, but I knew I wanted to go back home, though it was past midnight when I got home. I don’t remember much of the mundane time between - The next morning I woke and headed back to her where I spent another full day and find out both me and my dads debit cards aren’t working, and Sue is unsurprised (I’m starting to believe in this weird matrix of energy she’s talking about and feel like I’m targeted when I’m around her, or that she has some sort of bad luck) She dropped many lessons about God, energy, and demons and doing readings for people, which I started to come around to that day. I noticed that even people I would have avoided or felt unsafe with on my own, respected her or at least stayed away from her. I have a vivid memory of her saying “watch this!” And then with a lasso motion zapping me energetically so hard it makes me wince. That day Sue piled heaps of designer clothes into the trunk of my car which had been donated by the wealthy. As she does this she handed me a piece of paper that had printed on it what I later find out is a piece of “They’re made out of meat” by Terry Bison.
They're made out of meat." "Meat?" "Meat. They're made out of meat." "Meat?" "There's no doubt about it. We picked several from different parts of the planet, took them aboard our recon vessels, probed them all the way through. They're completely meat." "That's impossible. What about the radio signals? The messages to the stars." "They use the radio waves to talk, but the signals don't come from them. The signals come from machines." "So who made the machines? That's who we want to contact." "They made the machines. That's what I'm trying to tell you. Meat made the machines." "That's ridiculous. How can meat make a machine? You're asking me to believe in sentient meat." "I'm not asking you, I'm telling you. These creatures are the only sentient race in the sector and they're made out of meat."
She asked me if I remember the guy who comes into our coffee shop with a helmet on sometimes, and I say yes, and she suggests he might be an alien because she found this on the table after he left.
It is clear to me now that day, November 29th I was beginning to open the question - who am I? I’d been curious of my lineage but also potential past lives.
I went back home that night and At 2am still hopped up from the mushrooms I put on some clothes Sue had given me and got in my car feeling called to drive aimlessly. After 15 minutes I reached a glowing indigo Hyatt sign and immediately pulled in. I had just quit my Hyatt job and figured at the very least it could be a job opportunity for me there (as I had just quit working at a Hyatt)
When I got there a short, beautiful, and politely unassuming woman greeted me at a desk amidst a beautiful well light welcoming room. She appeared to be completely alone and I immediately felt safe and welcomed by her, though I quickly revealed I wasn’t quite sure why I had intended to show up to the hotel. I went with the flow, the woman asked me if I’d rather be at a cheaper Hyatt down the road and I immediately refused. I went to use the restroom, when I came out there was a single strangely menacing, yet friendly guard.
I hung around aimlessly, asking if I could sit on the marble countertops - dressing and acting as if completely in a trance and unashamed of myself and still high on mushrooms. The woman discouraged me because I think I would’ve been seen on the cameras. Instead, I sat down on a comfortable couch and began to converse with her. I felt She was gentle and good hearted but I also felt we were deeply on the same wavelength somehow. She asked me about my life, and I vaguely mentioned it was changing deeply - referring to my experiences with Sue and Psylocibin, without mentioning them. I stared deeply and intently at her, listening to her talk a bit, while in my head I asking questions in my mind “who will I have children with?” “Where do I belong in this life?” Feeling desperate and exhausted by those questions.
The woman picked up her can of bright red coke with both hands, 3 fingers facing up on either side, and told me the answers would come to me in a dream. I broke out into surprised, joyful, and astounded laughter and exclaimed “holy shit!” Because in my state it seemed like she was totally clued into what I had going on. Then she said what translated to my trancelike state as something along the lines of, “this isn’t my first rodeo.”
At this point, I’m still in an altered state and believe this hotel is somehow heaven?
Once our conversation was over, we took the elevator up together, (I think she knew I was high and wanted to make sure nothing went wrong.) I asked for a room on the 4th floor, but she said an entire childrens soccer team was residing and that she’d give me the third. I laughed and thanked her. She asked me a few questions, I don’t remember what they were, but they were easy to answer and I only remember her saying “we just want to make sure what you took was clean.” I’m not sure what she meant by this looking back, but in the moment I thought she was asking me because there was something she didn’t want to share with me if the mushrooms I had taken weren’t safe. Like she wanted to check my purity or something (though I could be imagining that)
She lead me to my room, said I could leave the door open, with the latch, when I wanted to come down, and did not give me a key and then she said that she’d be with me all night long.
I put my things down, and immediately began to look at myself in the luminescent hotel room mirrors feeling a deep pain and sadness. I slowly and delicately put my hair up, washed my face carefully, got undressed and began to massage lotion into my skin for some reason?
Then I looked in the mirror and began to squeeze the gunk out of my skin, believing that I am somehow ridding myself of ancestral curses - famine, disease, rape, pain. I started to form a story line around potential past lives. I’ll spare y’all the details of the rest of my episode because a lot of it still doesn’t make much sense to me. But besides the light I saw, it’s little coincidences that I keep coming back to in my mind that are so strange.
Like, The next day I get a haircut, the barber is an eclectic guy and mentions my evil twin sister (something Sue also did) for no apparent reason (I’ve never met the guy before) afterwards I go to the kava bar and immediately meet a random girl who also seems to be in the middle of a psychotic episode. She starts talking about conspiracy theories and stuff and she tells me she is secretly a native woman who just appears to be a black woman. Then she pulls out a pendulum and refers to it as “this thingy” I’m a bit surprised because the night before Sue had shown me how to use one to read yes, no and maybe.
I take my new friend Candace back home with me (she reveals to me she has another name she only shares when she feels safe) I don’t remember what it was but when I introduce her to one of my roommates as Candace he says “oh no it’s something more ancient than that” which I find really weird because he’s never met her before (how would he know she had a second name?) and it’s just a weird thing to say in general.
I forget I have a therapy appointment that day and am all of a sudden skeptical of my therapist, Candace briefly meets her and then tells me “she was divinely sent” which makes me feel less paranoid and I remember expecting her to say something of the like.
It’s also around this time I find 3 dead birds on a bike ride on the ground (3 different species) within exactly 11 minutes and they seem to stand out enough to maybe be trying to tell me something. I asked my friend who is a medicine woman to interpret the meaning, and it feels pretty on point to what happened looking back.
In retrospect, not necessarily everything I’ve shared means something extra-ordinary, but I’m curious to hear some other thoughts on what happened, and the context.
I put my things down, and immediately began to look at myself in the luminescent hotel room mirrors feeling a deep pain and sadness. I slowly and delicately put my hair up, washed my face carefully, undressed and began to massage lotion into my skin for some reason?
Then I looked in the mirror and began to squeeze the gunk out of my skin, believing that I was somehow ridding myself of ancestral curses - famine, disease, rape, pain. I started to form a story line around potential past lives.
I laid down in the bed, bluntly put, grabbed my vibrator, and spent hours with a voice in my head I believe to be the woman. She was gentle, wise and delicate, and when I touched myself I felt it was not me but her.
She told me things I wanted to understand about original biblical references, the creation of Adam and Eve, or whatever names they were, and I saw and felt at times, that I was birthing other creations amidst the quiet, deep intense, solitude of our connection. It was deeply lovely. I looked at the clock and had an innate sense our time was coming to an end. Completely naked and feeling nothing but gratitude, love, and wonder, I opened the curtains and looked out at the most beautiful cloudy sunrise. I felt I was looking directly at god and not a word had been said all night inside the room. It was one of the most beautiful things ID ever seen - I was truly in it, and I just knew.
I forgot, that when I had first checked into the room I had texted the man I was sleeping with, whom I loved, but was feeling confusion around as we were staying only casually connected. I regrettedly called him back (he had tried to call me earlier after I had sent him a series of cryptic texts like “some really cool shit is happening call me when you can.”) I asked him if I could come over, he said “I have some things to do today, can it wait?” I said “no” “he said I guess I can make the time then, or something along those lines.” Still in a complete trancelike state, I got in the car and frantically drove to his house without any real permission, which is painful to think about in retrospect.
When I got there, I unassumingly rang the doorbell and he happily let me in as if, or as I thought, he’d been expecting me.
I crawled into bed with him and felt safe again, like I had with Sue and with the woman whose name I had learned was Alexandria. I thought I could relax, but then immediately sex ensued again, and I felt both more and less control than I usually did when I was not in this strange state.
I don’t remember much except screaming and crying loudly, calling his name and telling him I loved him (which I had never done before) and I remember him saying it back to me.
I could feel my spiritual energy was so strong he was responsive to it which was terrifying as it was so new to both of us. In retrospect, I feel we were-him most of all, somewhat blind to what was happening. Sue had told me we had the power to hypnotize men, but I didn’t think I would be doing that so soon.
Before I knew it he asked me if I had a condom. I said no only in my car outside. And he pulled out what almost appeared to be a flaming red one directly after asking me if I had mine. I don’t remember putting it on or taking it off. I asked if he’d had sex with anyone else and he said “last week” which was strange and hurt me because I thought we had been sort of accidentally exclusive for the majority of our relationship together - later he revealed he had not had sex. I recall holding his hand and showing each other the birth of creation, me showing him love perhaps, feeling balls of light and darkness as stars circle each other before they explode. After that I only really remember being on top of him, me in complete control, asking him to cum, him saying “I can’t” and then having a massive horrible realization, looking him straight in the face and saying, “ohhhhh you’re the devil aren’t you? You’re beautiful. Oh my god you’re beautiful.” He looked so beautiful and I held his face. Then I was professing my love for him again and again and again even though my heart was breaking as I did because I somehow knew the face looking at me was not capable of love. The rest was a confusing blur. I don’t remember much about leaving him except that it hurt me probably more than the spiritual pain I had experienced in the tent. I felt completely and utterly alone, heart broken, and terrified. Rattled, and in a daze I pulled up my phone directions, and drove for what felt like 20 minutes until I saw a beautifully insane woman, head hung low, dressed in black, almost like a shadow, sitting on the curb, both feet in the road. I slowed down, rolled my window, and asked for Sue. She said yes she’s already at the place with the TV, and she said she wanted something in return. She went to reach for my Bluetooth adapter and without question, I handed it to her. I had learned not to be afraid to lose things, my love and life was the only thing that mattered to me.
I drove onward, got on the freeway, and in memory, passed exits I recognized over and over again driving for what felt like an hour, miserable and screaming and crying in pain and fear, windows rolled down wind recklessly pushing and pulling at me, and calling out for Sue, understanding I was time traveling. I remember most vividly seeing the words “Richard blvd” (the name of my exit to Davis” at least twice between sacramento exits. I attempted not to doubt, only to trust, I would arrive home, though I was terrified for my physical and spiritual lives.
I don’t remember much about arriving home. I only remember being deeply relieved to be somewhere familiar again.
I would stay in this state a few more days…until my parents pulled me out, I believed my mother had died and I felt such agony I was screaming in the room of my house, my roommates rushing in to comfort me. I was not in control enough of myself to remain on those realms in any capacity after the days I had been through. I needed to be recaptured reraptured in love only my family could give me. And I am forever grateful they took me home to them.

2023.06.08 11:04 Goat2016 Alternative idea to the current auto-kick system.

I'm suggesting and alternative to hopefully reduce the amount of votekicks we get appear in the corner of our screens. As I seem to spend half the match with one there & it's annoying.
The idea:

2023.06.08 11:01 g3rrity Hdin positioning and keybinds for tele stomp

I struggle to be able to hold shift while also teleing, hammering, and pressing alt to see drops especially in places like CS where lots of things are dropping and I want to be able to quickly see and scan them as I go. What is best positioning when doing this? I know where to stand generally to cast hammers but I’ve heard both keeping mobs to NW of you and NE of you when casting hammers. I struggle to position also with teleing in particular. It feels chaotic atm and not as efficient as I’d like.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions! <3.

WTC Final 2023
WTC Final: Travis Head made many records with a century, and made the biggest partnership in the final of the ICC tournament

WTC Final 2023
The final match of the 2021-23 cycle of the World Test Championship is being played at The Oval in England. Teams of India and Australia are face to face to become Test champions. At the end of the first day's play, Australia scored 327 runs for three wickets and is in a better position in the title match. Travis Head scored 146 and Steve Smith scored 95 runs for Australia. India had dropped Australia's three wickets for 76 runs. After this, Travis Head, who came to bat, scored fast runs and brought his team to a very strong position.
Along with scoring a century in this match, Travis Head made many records in his name. He is the first batsman to score a century in the final of the World Test Championship. No batsman was able to score a century in the first final of the Test Championship. At present, the biggest score in the final of the Test Championship is also in the name of Head. He is still unbeaten and will have a chance to score a double-century on the second day.
Inducted into the club of Sachin and Clive Lloyd
Travis Head has also joined the list of batsmen to score the first century in a knockout match of an ICC tournament. The first century in the knockout match of the ODI World Cup was scored by West Indies veteran batsman Clive Lloyd. At the same time, in the knockout match of the Champions Trophy, the first century came from the bat of India's Sachin Tendulkar. Now Travis Head has scored the first century of the Test Championship.
Biggest partnership in the final of an ICC tournament
In this match, Travis Head and Steve Smith shared a 251-run partnership for the fourth wicket. With this, this pair has made a world record. This is the highest partnership in the final of an ICC tournament. Earlier in the 2003 World Cup, Adam Gilchrist and Matthew Hayden shared an unbeaten 234-run partnership against India. Now Smith and Head will have a chance to increase this partnership on the second day of the match.

2023.06.08 10:58 Yakut5892 My [21 M] white girlfriend [ 21 F] said that I moved up the social ladder for dating her and I'm lucky for a brown guy.

Okay guys, I'm using a throwaway cause my girlfriend seems to know a lot of people. Sorry, if it's a bit long and winded. Please bear with me.
My girlfriend (Jennifer; not real name) and I are both college students in a mostly white university. It's known for having a great engineering program and thus has an influx of brown South Asian students including me (Mostly male) come in.
Now, I am a Christian Indian born and raised in America, who comes from the stereotypical, traditional family who came to this college for engineering. My girlfriend is white who was apart of a sorority when she started college here for about 2 years until she had to leave due to time commitment issues. I met and started dating her about a year and a half ago when she was in the process of leaving. I had actually started liking here before I knew about her sorority past. (Just putting that out there)
Jennifer still keeps in touch with her sisters and also knows many guys and is still very social. I, on the other hand was nothing like her at all. She is the first girlfriend that I have had. I, like most brown guys it seems, was a shy, socially awkward nerd who didn't know how to talk to girls in the first year. I met a "friend" in one of my classes who seemed to gravitate towards me because I guess he knew I would be willing to help him out in class and help him with homework answers and perhaps he may have used me. I didn't care, because I was willing to do anything to make friends. In return, he invited me to hang out with him and his friends and in a short amount of time he taught me a lot of things when it came to the social scene, parties, clothes, and talking to girls. (I actually was able to get a hand-job from a girl who did it through pity for the most part)
Eventually, I met Jennifer at a party that my friend invited me to. We hit it off and we started dating. Everything is swell. She introduced me to her friends who didn't mind me at first. I introduced her to my friends both white and brown. I still made friends with the brown guys because that's my people, if that makes sense and helped them with their social life.
Now, this happened a few days ago and I haven't seen my girlfriend in person yet. Well, we were both talking about a Greek hosted party that we were invited to and encouraged to invite anyone we could. So, me being a friend wanted to invite a few of my brown friends to the party just as she wanted to invite her own friends. When my gf heard that I was going to invite other brown guys, she came up to me and asked me nicely "Is it alright if you didn't invite your friends?
I asked her why? She said "not all of them, just a few." I asked again which ones? She basically listed off all of my brown friend and none of the white friends that I was planning on inviting. (My list isn't that big btw). We went back and forth about it until she dropped this bomb.
"Well, let's be honest you went up a notch socially since we've been dating. You don't see Indian guys dating white girls like me at all do you? I did agree with her on that part regretfully. My girlfriend is a very hot and attractive girl like most sorority girls and does have guys eyeing her. I guess I agreed, because honestly every brown guy that I have seen with a girlfriend has been either overweight or just not attractive at all and I assume they are settling for a brown guy because no other guy will take them. So, I felt like the luckiest brown guy in the world since dating my girlfriend. I know this makes me a douche bag and I hate the fact I think like this and it doesn't help that Indian men are the least desirable by most women including Indian women :/
Anyways, I told her so are you dating me for some exotic thrill, pity, dare, or because you actually love me? She said "of course I love you. I wouldn't be with you with this long if I didn't". After, some loving words, we had sex and she went back home and we left the question about the friends up in the air. The party isn't for nearly 2 weeks, so there's time.
Now, I don't what to think or position to take from this exchange. On one hand, I feel very hurt emotionally as I could never measure up to my girlfriend especially when another dude could snatch her up easily. I'm also hurt because I am not ashamed of my heritage and should never be, but my girlfriend goes and says this. I love her so much and she may be my first everything for the most part, but I feel so close and understand one another on the same wavelength. I don't know if this could be get in the way of our relationship.
Tldr; My white girlfriend says that I should be lucky for dating her as a brown guy after getting into argument about inviting brown friends to a party and now I don't know how to feel about this and where I should I go from here.
EDIT: Thank you everyone for all of the advice and encouragement I received from you all. I decided I'm going to talk to my girlfriend and ask her about where she sees us in the future. I will also go more in depth for her reason for dating me and her views on brown people. I will make sure I update you all. It'll either be good or bad. I'll let you all know either way.

2023.06.08 10:58 luna_wolf8 PLZ HELP… juvenile leo swollen belly, no stool/urate, not eating, eyes shut. More info below!

PLZ HELP… juvenile leo swollen belly, no stool/urate, not eating, eyes shut. More info below!
I purchased my (I believe possibly female?) leopard gecko on April 20th (not sure of exact hatch date).
Pic 1-3 taken yesterday Pic 4-6 taken 2 days ago Pic 7-8 taken May 27 Pic 9 taken May 9 Pic 10 taken May 4 Last 4 pics taken April 20
Husbandry: -soil/sand mix until replaced with paper towels yesterday -warm side 85°-90° / cool side 75°-78° -humidity kept around 40% -Arcadia shadeweller T5 uvb -halogen bulb for heat during day, ceramic bulb at night -calcium w/o d3 kept in a small cap in her enclosure
Usual diet before current symptoms: -mostly small dubia roaches, silkworms, black soldier fly larvae, crickets (recently stopped feeding crickets and waiting for order of grasshoppers to arrive) - occasionally hornworms, mealworms and small superworms -once a week I offer 3 wax worms as a treat but she doesn’t particularly enjoy them
Important info: - May 4 pic (pic # 10), I was feeding her when one of the bigger dubia roaches that I feed my adult leos fell into her enclosure along with the small one I intended to drop in there. She snatched the big one up before I could get it back out. She acted like she had a hard time swallowing it - pointing her head up to the ceiling and kept opening her mouth. My husband had duty that evening so I was alone with our 5 kids and no vehicle since he drove it to work. Since I was unable to get her to an emergency vet, I did what I had previously read in one of my leopard gecko care sheets which was slowly give her water with a syringe to help her get the dubia down. She eventually got it down and went back to normal. She never seemed to have any issues again, meaning her stools/urates were totally normal and she continued eating the following day or two.
  • May 27th (pic 7 & 8) somewhere in those few days she ceased eating but was still passing regular stools and urate. She was due for a shed very soon so I figured it was due to that.
  • Between May 27th until Tuesday she had begun to appear bloated/thicker around her mid-section and her eyes were usually closed. Her eyes, I assumed may have possibly been due to substrate or shedding so I changed her back to paper towels (also so I could monitor her stool/urate output better). Her eyes are not cloudy and there is no discharge. As of yesterday, she does not lay down completely. She has her lower body completely on the ground, but her upper body, she used her arms to keep herself upright. I also noticed yesterday, her belly appears to have red areas on it whereas before yesterday it was completely translucent with no red areas and no black spots like you see sometimes with juveniles. Her belly is extremely soft, there are no lumps, just little skin rolls which she has always had.
Care Regime: -warm bath daily/every other day while gently massaging her belly from neck to base of tail -flukers eye drops twice a day -water and clear pedialyte via syringe drops twice a day just in case she isn’t using her water dish -carnivore care mixed with calcium & repashy grub pie once a day via syringe started two days ago -bene bac every other day -dose of Panacur (0.03 ml) 3 days ago
My exotic vet is 2 hours away and yesterday I brought my daughter to her pediatrician appt and was unexpectedly given a referral to see a neurologist today 3 hours the opposite way today and I have appts tomorrow and Friday for my other children since I try to make their appts all in the same week. If I need to take her to the vet, I will try to arrange for my mom to come pick her up and bring her there for me but if there is anything else I can do at home for now?
Additional info- I have 3 other leopard geckos. Everyone has their own front open 50 gallon enclosure with warm, cold, and humid hide, plenty of enrichment, fresh bottled water everyday, and everyone else is healthy and normal

2023.06.08 10:57 PenautButter- Rental company didn't charge me yet

I rented a car here in Rome from AVIS they reserved the renting amount and it got reserved. a few days before I dropped the car off the rent amount went back to my account. I dropped the car off and told them that the rental amount went back to my account and they told me it will automatically be detucted (this was yesterday) still the amount didn't get detucted from my account. I have a flight tomorrow to go back to my country and I'm not sure if I will have problems in the airport because of this

2023.06.08 10:54 Chrispy_Terman Disappointing

Maybe if Activision let blizzard do what they know this game would be better. It’s obvious that this is an incomplete game with tons of missed details. Reminds me of how COD MW2 felt when they released it. The dungeon bosses are ridiculously difficult (at least for my Druid) I dropped back from tier 2 to 1 and had to spend 30 minutes running around the tiny room just to beat the den mother. I’m now 3 hours into trying to beat the girls mom in the mine. I’ve played every Diablo game and expansions that ever came out and was in the D3 closed beta. D4 could be sooo much better than this. I guess they didn’t mind rushing to hit that 666 release date. Also if they put more time into checking the details instead of promoting to death a game that a ton of people already know, it may feel more complete.
