Restaurant creole near me

thinking about the dastardly 'To the Bone' movie and like..???

2023.06.09 17:20 basilikaolivers thinking about the dastardly 'To the Bone' movie and like..???

I feel like the movie heavily implies that Eli just? doesn't eat at ALL?? For the duration of the entire film??
I watched To the Bone for the first time when I hadn't spiralled into a full on ED yet but still had a bad relationship with food and sorta idealized the thought of having an ED - so the beginning stages basically. I now watch it frequently cause I use it to trigger myself (even tho it makes me cringe so bad 😭)
But it isn't until recently that I sorta realised how heavily they imply that Eli doesn't eat at all. Like, at ALL. 😩 They don't show her struggling with resisting either, like bruh
When she goes to that restaurant with L*ke (💀 public enemy #1) , she chews and spits out food while talking cheerfully like it's not hard at all. We all know how hard it is to not swallow food you've chewed, especially after you've been starving for as long as she has. Especially while being distracted by a conversation??? WHY IS SHE NOT STRUGFLING😭
(I'm not saying there has never been a person who's been able to do this, but this is a MOVIE meant to represent EDs. This shit is so unrealistic and the way the characters talk about it too makes it sound like it's the norm)
I don't get HOW the creators didn't consider that that would give such a warped image of EDs to people. Still to this day sooo many people think that people with e.g. anorexia just like. don't eat at all, or that we're not hungry at all, which is so not true
We all know it's so much more about restriction. Straight up fasting for a long time will not work
And in a way I feel like the movie sets a dangerous... bar(?) for people with EDs/in danger of getting an ED. Not only bcs of the blatant thinspo, but because every time I watch that movie, my disordered brain gets so jealous of Eli's "ability" to restrict and how unbothered she seems about it. They make resisting look so easy. When in reality we all know how every instance with food feels like a damn face off
Hunger is a biological reaction😩 A much more realistic representation would be to show how difficult it is to deny your body a basic necessity
(the movie has sooooo many other flaws and awful things in it, this is just one I haven't seen anyone mention)

2023.06.09 17:17 Green_madam 34 [F4M] Ukraine/Anywhere for husband

This text is only for single man without kids, who searchs for wife. You can be Christian (practicing or not) or atheist.
Important, CHAT DOESN'T WORK CORRECTLY. I can't see and reply to chat requests, can't fix it. Text to letter section. How to do that? Open my profile > More options > Send message. Not chat but message.
I'm a single female from Ukraine (can meet with you in another country, more safe for you). I search for a single childless man older than 35 (older- better) for a serious relationship, first without physical aspects. Your age and appearance are not important. I wish you are self-employed, your own master and boss or digital nomad who is not bended strongly with certain place of living or office shedual but that is not a strict demand.
Sometimes men expect physical aspects very fast and leave fast if not get it soon. In my opinion, this means the first interest was not in the relationship itself but in these aspects. That's why I want to find a relationship first without it. So I can be sure that a man stays near me because he really likes me, not for physical satisfaction itself. That means not only one sphere of relationship. People divide into 2 groups. Those who give more than take and opposite. Wishing to gain satisfaction fast leads to frustration and disappointment.
I have got few marriage offers in the past, but felt that they were not serious because the men were too young, not well settled and made these offers trying to gain something. Being not a young girl, I still wait for a right person—a man who will be happy staying with me and will do everything for me by his own wish. Sounds too vanilla? Yes, I am a dreamer.
If things work, I can relocate to you or to invite you to live in Ukraine after the war ends. If you are able to set up app called telegram for chat and meet in real life before autumn, then please text me. I prefer well written letter that was sent in inbox letters, not in chat requests.
Now more detaily about me. Never been married, no kids (will not have in the nearest time and probably a childfree), no pets . Was raised in small village at farmer's house (the nature was great but didn't like the hard working lifestyle) and prefer city life. I don't smoke, don't drink alcohol . You will not have to suffer dealing with numerous people around me because I don't have friends (people disappear when interests and lifestyles become different) and my family is very small. I don't visit bars, clubs or parties and not addicted to social networks. As an introvert, I can't open to someone fast because have been cheated by those whom trusted. Life teaches, only real actions show the true person's intentions, not just his words.
About two negative moments. The first is my passivity. I was raised in a culture where it was considered vulgar if a woman is too active in the path of creating a relationship. Yes, it is obvious that active women will get success sooner than passive one but I can't change myself and prefer the one who will take initiative and will be just classic old-fashioned gentleman.
The second negative moment is that being introverted, I totally dislike situation when I have to contact with unknown people, especially with men, especially in field of relationship. That sounds not logical because how can someone know anyone if he/she doesn't like starting this contact? There is only one solution for me. I can start contact only if I have already got very detailed information about person so this makes illusion that he is already not a stranger. Most of men send short message, expecting that I will ask many questions trying to find out his personality. The truth is that I will not do it. Yes, you can call me bad for that, but I will reply only to well written detailed letter from someone who will not make me to ask many questions but will write proper letter with basic information by himself. Man's appearance means nothing for me, but what he says and what is more important, what he does - that's important.
That were negative moments. Obviously, there are much more of them but I'll let you discover size of all iceberg by yourself. Thanks for reading.
P.S. Please, be patient and don't expect fast replies, sometimes it is not easy to do due to many reasons. That one who puts efforts in his first letter will get reply faster.
P.S.S. Chat doesn't work correctly and doesn't show messages and requests there. Text only in letters section.

2023.06.09 17:17 Huge_Sandwich5272 I (19M) received bad, unexpected news from my girlfriend(18F)

I (19M) received bad, unexpected news from my girlfriend(18F). What do I do? So I want to start from the "beginning" because our relationship is not very long. So: I like my girlfriend since the summer of 2021, and she started liking me from the end of 2022. (We have known each other for about 5 years from the current date). She took the "first step" and confessed this to me at the beginning of March 2023. From then on, we started dating. We were very close, and we have been officialy together since 15 May. everything went well, we understand each other, we love each other, of course there are also "arguments", but not so serious as to affect our relationship. sometimes I saw my girlfriend was sad, and I always asked her that. her answer was always like: "no", but I knew her quite well and always wanted to talk to her. she told me that this upset is related to her problems and that she does not want to talk about them. I kept insisting, I kept insisting, but I couldn't do anything, so I gave up and told her that if She ever wants to talk about it, I'm here, present. I always try to make her laugh, to become more “smiling”. She didn't always seem to have this upset, but she was starting to get "sad" more often. and today, June 9, I went to school, we met, everything seemed ok. I got home, we talked again, we sent each other messages, she told me a few more things, and then she said something that I can say just upset me and from here I want to start reading the whole conversation:
her: "I want to talk to you about something. something serious and I don't know if it's that good" me now?" she: "I don't know, if you want I'll tell you now, if not, tonight" me: "tell me now, if you can" she: "ok, I'll write in the notes and come back" me: "since I heard that it's not good, I already want to cry, but I'm waiting here, I have to listen" her: "promise me that you won't cry, nothing, otherwise I won't tell you" me: "you have to tell me" her: "you have to promise me" me: I can't because I might not fulfill my promise, but at least I try her: so I dont want to talk anymore but only for two weeks and you haven't done anything wrong, I'm not mad at you, I'm not doing this to talk to someone else or anything like that. I just want to be "alone" for a bit so I can put my things and thoughts in "order" and I hope you don't get upset and understand me because I'm really not ok and that's the only way I'll be able to be again ok and sorry (She doesn’t want us to talk for 2w- this means exactly when im done with one of the most important exams in my life) Her:and that way you will be able to learn without being distracted Me:love, do you think this is best for you? Her: for both of you that there are 10 days left and you take the exam Me:but are you sure you want to do this? Her: Yes Me: ok, know that I'm always here if you need to talk to someone and I'd be happy to. and I'm sorry that I couldn't help you with anything and maybe I noticed that you were sad and I tried to make you talk if "you don't feel ok", but maybe I didn't try hard enough, sorry Her:why sorry, nothing is your fault, you did everything you could, I really appreciate , so yk Me:still not enough. I hope that in the near future you will be able to discuss anything with me and I'm sorry that you couldn't discuss and want to talk about your "problems" and everything that bothers you and doesn't make you feel good Her:and I hope Me: and I still hope that, in the near future, your problems will be our problems. I know that life is hard sometimes, but together we can make everything easier and together we can overcome all the problems ,and im sorry again. and I will do my best to respect your wish. now I don't feel too well and I want to go to bed.. I'm sorry, and just so you know, I love you and I'm sorry that I couldn't be there for you when you needed me Her:ok, I understand and thanks and I don't want you to think about it because you didn't do anything wrong and you have no reason to feel bad for it and I want you to focus on your studies and the exam, not to think about this thing me:ok, i'll try *seen 5h ago”
Please, i need help. should I leave her like this for 2 weeks so that She becomes ok again? I think she would go deeper into her thoughts and I don't know how good that would be. should i go and try to talk to her?

2023.06.09 17:16 Ryiverz B4NE: C3E2 – Love’s in the Air

So here we are – Riders on exile. Well, better this fate than becoming Swiss cheese. If they sent such a big offensive there, they were really determined. But they really think they’ll find some documents there? They can try, but Yan claimed that there’s nothing of value left.
I was the one leading the group – with Svarog detector in one hand, with my eight-shot revolver in the other and with cig in my mouth. Our gear was unchanged – I still had my SV-338 on my back and had my armor, which I found out it was modified version of Clear Sky’s CS-3b.
Sorrow wasn’t far from me. Even though we had most likely the most advanced detectors out there, he still was throwing bolts here and there. Probably because of boredom. This doesn’t mean that I stopped using them myself – I had a pack of bolts on my belt.
I should’ve mention it – we were heading to the Garbage through northeastern path. Soldiers came from southwest and they are most likely looking for internal dangers rather than those from the outside, so we were relatively safe.
After failing a couple of times to spark a conversation in our group, I was just focused on finding a safe route to the Zone’s first crossroads. And – I’ll be honest – I wanted to find an artifact. Not only to gain some cash, but maybe to find something that would make this journey more interesting. The luck wasn’t on my side that day, sadly.
We came to the Garbage. We all knew by instinct to prepare ourselves for some resistance. Resistance as powerful as Clear Sky these days, but resistance nonetheless. To our surprise, however, we found the nearest ”outpost” empty.
Confused a little, we started exploring the surrounding area. No presence of bandits could be located. I even used my scope to see the insides of a hangar, but on the surface, it was safe. Even the sentry dressed in Sunrise suit, standing before the brick wall didn’t open fire at us. Quite the opposite, actually – he waved when he saw us and said to come closer. And we did just that.
”Riders!” – he shouted with joy. - ”Holy fuck!”
”Hey, em…” – I tried to remind myself of his name. - ”Oh! You’re Yara Bubble. One who was a ”whale” on our party.”
”Yeah, I overestimated my capabilities. I shouldn’t drink that much.”
”At least you’re alive and well now.”
”Yep.”
”Still, we’re curious about the current situation in this hangar.”
”Nothing to write a book about, I’m afraid. Duty and few hired loners executed an assault on the complex, clearing the place from this scum. For now, bandits haven’t inducted any sort of retaliation.”
”Not surprised. They’re…”
Suddenly, Zrak started… What’s the name for crow’s sound? Let me check… so I found the name ”caw”. So he was… cawing? Sounds stupid. But that’s the most common answer. Anyway, he started making loud sounds.
For others, it’d seem like he’s doing this for no reason. But we’ve found out this meant that an emission is approaching. And that meant we should be careful, Zrak especially. Codex said that crows die way faster in blowouts than humans.
”We should get inside.” – Sorrow stated. - ”Emission’s gonna hit us in a moment.”
”Wow…” – Yara was impressed. - ”Your bird can sense such things?”
”Yeah – one of the reasons why I love him. Come on.”
We made our way into the hangar. It was occupied mostly by loners, but few Dutyers were hanging around here as well. To spy on us or escape from the superiors for at least a moment – it’s hard to blame them.
Of course, even if emission just started, we won’t just sit like cowards, doing nothing. We popped a vodka bottle and I shared smokes with Sorrow and Craver. We were exchanging jokes of various quality. I felt good, but couldn’t get rid off the feeling that this was… artificial.
After blowout stopped, we bid our farewells with Yara and continued going to Army Warehouses. Atmosphere here was pretty much calm. Bandits may not be present at that time, but mutants were still roaming the lands. They weren’t attacking us, though.
We weren’t going to Duty outpost – we still weren’t sure if we could safely enter Rostok, even though some ex-soldiers claimed that they miss our visits and were surprised that we stopped going there. Hell, they promised us to talk to their highest superiors for an official invitation. We got one, but we continued to be hesitant about this.
Instead, we used Garbage-Wild Territory route. It’s rarely used, so even better for us. Unfortunately, that meant going through the field rich in fire anomalies. Nothing that four Svarogs and lots of bolts can’t solve.
Going further into this location (that many claim to be almost as bad as Red Forest, which I can’t understand), we found something interesting. Okay, maybe not that interesting, but we found bodies of mercs and loners that had to be fresh, judging by the state of corpses. We decided that we’d leave them alone.
Soon after, we got near the wreckage of helicopter that had fire anomalies around it. One of it was still active, but that’s because the body of flesh was in it. Strange that it didn’t turn into ash. But we went to nearby big door that was hiding a part of Rostok complex.
I’ll be completely honest here – I don’t know what should I write about this location. Really, it’s so uninteresting that I’d have to lie to say something worthwhile. And I don’t want to do that. So for your entertainment, I’ll just skip to Warehouses.
We ended up near bloodsucker village – the location that’s our destination. In south of it, there’s a small farmstead that poses as Freedom outpost. That’s official information, but it’s actually Irina’s place where she lives and that’s where Quarrel visits her.
Yep, living next to abandoned village that bloodsuckers really like for some reason plus it’s dotted with various fire anomalies. How she can live here without problems is unknown to me, but hey – strange shelter is better than no shelter… I think.
We were careful about stepping here. With weapons in our hands, we were slowly approaching the farmstead. We didn’t saw any signs of Freedom presence, which made me (but maybe others too) slightly disturbed. This didn’t last long, though.
”Guys, it’s safe, I assure you.” – said the woman in Freedom helmetless SEVA, coming out of cover.
”Hi, Iri.” – Quarrel waved at her.
”Hi, Cas. Oh, and hello, Riders.”
We just nodded at her, without uttering a word.
”What brings all of you here?” – she asked, a bit surprised.
”Army raided our place.” – our tough guy replied. - ”Big offensive – with choppers and such.”
”Huh… good that you didn’t stay to fight them.”
”Of course. It’d be stupid, so I commanded that we should get somewhere else, at least temporarily, so we could come up with the plan of recapturing the place.”
I rolled my eyes when I heard this. Quarrel – prideful as usual, even if it involves lying. He really changed through these months. But I wanted to get straight to the point.
”Long story short – army raided our place and Quarrel suggested that we should come to you.” – I said after a moment of silence. - ”Are you willing to share some space with us?”
”Of course.” – Flora replied. - ”Perhaps not the house, but this barn should be enough. It has relatively whole roof, so you won’t get wet. Are you fine with that?”
”Yeah. But there shouldn’t be any problems with… neighbors, right?”
”Last bloodsucker was killed by me more than a month ago. They didn’t reappear since then. Other mutants don’t come here as well. It’s really a safe location.”
”I’ll stash the items there.” – Quarrel joined the talk. - ”After that… maybe you want to go somewhere?”
”With you? Always.”
After this exchange of words, we got to the barn. Quarrel just left the stuff he was carrying through this journey in the corner and he was heading out with his girl, saying ”See you later, guys” before leaving us.
Craver quickly organized his part of this barn and instead of helping any of us, he proceeded to eat some sausage. I wanted to say something, but I knew that this won’t help much, if at all. Suddenly, he got a message that made him visibly happy.
”Lads, I have to go.” – he said loudly.
”Have fun…” – I replied to him with indifference.
Ex-ex-merc (I know this sound stupid, but still wanted to write this) grabbed his gear and quickly left the hideout, leaving me and Sorrow alone in our new home. I should feel bad about this, but I started to feel… lighter. Like a tension got swiped away.
We finished organizing out parts at the exact same moment. I briefly checked if Sorrow is alright, but he said he’s fine and then he started another vodka bottle. I should leave him to his thoughts and let him rest for a while.
I looked through our items and grabbed new pack of cigarettes. I lit one and lied on my sleeping bag. After thinking about what to do, I pulled out my PDA and started watching some videos on the internet. I don’t know why, but in Army Warehouses, there were much better speeds.
So I was detached from that world for some time, not thinking about my or others’ problems. This felt… good. Very good, even. But then I turned towards Sorrow, who had his head buried in his legs. I got to him, sat nearby and pat his shoulder. He immediately raised his gaze to me.
”Plagued?” – he was a bit confused.
”What’s the problem, Sorrow?” – I asked with genuine intent.
”Can I be completely honest with you?”
”Sorrow… you’re my brother. I’d never replace you. I’ll never sell you out. I’d rather pop a bullet in my head than to give you up. So yes, you can be perfectly honest with me.”
”Plagued… I don’t think coming here was a good idea.”
”Why?” – I asked, even though I suspected what the answer might be.
”Quarrel said it’s good that he’ll have us and Irina close. It’s not even that I’m envious. It will create new problems, new arguments. More likely for our group to fall apart. Craver going to mercs and his girl isn’t helpful either. I don’t want to stop them, but with each day, we grow more distant from one another. I wish it was like in our old days.”
”I want that too, Sorrow. But sadly, there isn’t much we can do about this. I tried pretty much anything I could. And us leaving them won’t help either. It’ll just cement the fall of our team.”
”Yeah…”
”One can hope that it’ll eventually get better. At least we have each other.”
”There’s that… Eh…”
”You feel better?”
”A bit. Thanks. But…”
”What?”
”I’m curious about how the soldiers do in our former base.”
”Huh… I won’t stop you.”
”I’ll try to return as fast as I can.”
”Be careful, brother.”
”I will. Goodbye.”
And I became last man standing. Eh… Even though I let him to do the thing he wants to do, we both know it’s an excuse to be alone with his thoughts. He still cares, otherwise he’d pull out Kurt Cobain long ago.
Few minutes later, I got up and went outside. I couldn’t find Sorrow anywhere. I lit up another smoke and started to look around my new place. Mutants were really far from my current location, but I saw approaching Freedomer. I was cautious, with revolver in my hand.
”Hey!” – guy shouted cheerfully.
”Greetings.” – I replied calmly.
”Is there Irina Flora around?”
”She’s absent. Personal matters. Why do you ask?”
”She was supposed to give me a report, so I could give it to Lukash.”
”Really?”
”Nah, it’s just an excuse, so I could get out from the base.”
”But what do you want from her?”
”My amount of weed is getting low. I asked pretty much everyone if they have some to spare. Looks like I’ll have to look elsewhere. You’re here alone?”
”Yeah. And who are you exactly?”
”Yurik Bear. I know you’re Rider, but I don’t remember which one.”
”Plagued.”
”Maybe you want to go with me? I’ll have someone to talk to.”
”If weed is involved then I’ll go.”
”Great. I’ll go around for a while and ask others for some plant. But after that, I know the place where we can chill out. Follow me.”

2023.06.09 17:16 Lost_Government6187 26 [M4F] SoCal/California - Looking for love on the internet. What could possibly go wrong?

Happy Friday!!!
Greetings, internet! I am a 26 year-old male from Southern California! I desire a true, real relationship. One where we start out as great friends and it naturally progresses into a great, intimate relationship.
I'm very career-oriented and have a full time job working for the government (ironic, considering my username here). I live very comfortably on my own but figured it would be great to have someone to share this magical journey of life with. I've made posts on here in the past, but I've had more interactions with bots than actual people (seriously, what's with the bots? I'm not interested in your crypto scam 😭)
I'll try my best to describe myself physically here. I'm on the taller side, white, not overweight but not skinny. Probably not the best description but I would be more than happy to exchange pictures over chat!
As for my personality, I am a huge nerd. I love all the typical nerdy things you can think of and would love a woman who shares similar interests, such as video games, Star Wars, Marvel, etc! Though, that is not a requirement either!
As for what I am looking for: I am looking for a woman to share the rest of my life with! I'm not very picky at all when it comes to who I mingle with as I feel I connect pretty well with various people from all walks of life! Just be honest about your intentions! If you do decide to message me, PLEASE be a woman from SoCal, or at least somewhere from or near California and be willing to travel! (If distance becomes an issue, we would both be splitting this responsibility, so let's be realistic about it!)
In your message, send a little about yourself, and include the word "tomato" so I know you read all of this! (I will ignore your message without the word tomato - nothing personal, but I want someone genuine so I need a way to filter out fake people/bots) I like putting faces to names fairly quickly so be ready to exchange photos after we start talking for a bit! Talk soon!

2023.06.09 17:16 sunflowersinthesky10 How do I better appreciate where I live?

About a year ago, I moved to a new city (let's call it City B). I'd just started a remote job, and so I figured I'd take the opportunity to try out a new city. While my previous city (we'll call it City A) had been home and there were things I loved about it, I didn't think it was where I saw myself permanently. Once I decided on and starting planning the move, I think I started enjoying City A more. It's like the fact that I knew I was leaving made me push myself to really enjoy those day-to-day things more. I appreciated things like going to my local bookstore, favorite restaurants, and local events much more when it was potentially one of the last times getting to experience them.
City B has been a lot of fun. Looking back on the last year, I've done a lot of cool things that are really unique to this place. But I've really struggled with making this city feel like "home" and I still don't feel like I have a super solid sense of community here. About a month ago, there were some big changes in my job that have made me decide to start looking for my next role. My industry actually is really big in City A, so a lot of the jobs I'm looking at are based there, which I feel ok with. I feel like I'm glad I've had my time here but am homesick still and ready to go back and feel more confident now that its where I'd like to live more permanently.
The thing is, now that I'm thinking about leaving, I feel like I'm enjoying City B way more. I feel like I'm taking advantage of more and enjoying them more. It's made me realize that maybe I appreciate things more when I'm in that sort of travel mindset of a place being a temporary visit. I'm worried I'll move back to City A and not appreciate it as much as I did in those last few months there. Does anyone have any advice as to how to really appreciate where you live?

2023.06.09 17:15 Fit_King2147 Wholesome poop story?

I know we all love poop stories here, so here’s my addition, and it’s a good one. I was traveling Europe with my boyfriend, and it was his first time so we were trying to pack as much into our trip as humanly possible. After being so busy for the first 4 days of our trip, I had a horrible realization- I hadn’t pooped ONCE since we’d left the states. I have IBS so sometimes this happens to me, usually I just take a laxative and get back on schedule. Unfortunately for me though, I forgot to pack any. I had to send my boyfriend out in Italy to find a pharmacy for me and get me something to help. He came back quickly, and told me so proudly that he asked the pharmacist what would help my situation, she she gave him some medicine for me. The bottle was all in Italian, so I used the Google translate app to figure out how many I should take. I popped a couple pills, and went on with our day. Alas, nothing happened and I still hadn’t pooped! The morning of our 5th day, I took another pill for good luck, just to see if I could get things moving. Well, that one sure did the trick. We were in our hotel room getting ready to go out for the afternoon, and my boyfriend had just gotten in the shower when my stomach started CHURNING. Like SOS I’m gonna die churning and rumbling like I’ve never felt. I started pacing and going through my options- do I wait for him to finish showering? Do I run down the street and find a cafe and devastate their bathroom? What do I do?? Unfortunately, I had that decision made for me, and I just couldn’t hold it in anymore. I shit my pants. And not just a little bit. It was all down my legs, all over me. My boyfriend comes out of the bathroom, and I run past him and lock the bathroom door trying to figure out what to do. I get in the shower, and do my best to wash my jeans in the sink (I ended up throwing them away, there was no laundry near where we were), and collected myself as best as I could. I was horrified at what had just happened, and even worse, I had to tell my boyfriend. I came out the bathroom and burst into tears. He though someone had died or I was mad at him, but when I told him what happened, neither of us could stop laughing for a good 20 minutes. He was so kind to me, and was even ok cancelling our plans for the day so I could stay close to the toilet just in case… this happened months ago and we still laugh about it occasionally. I’m so lucky to have a partner that still loves and accepts me, even after I violently shat my pants and almost ruined our vacation.

2023.06.09 17:14 bikingfencer Galatians, chapter 5 - vices and virtues

Galatians   Chapter Five (https://esv.literalword.com/?q=Galatians+5)
 
-1. The Anointed frees [שחרר, SheeHRayR] us unto freedom [חרות, HayROoTh], therefore stand, and do not submit [תכנעו, TheeKhahN`Oo] again [שוב, ShOoB] to yoke [לעל, Le'oL] the slavery.  
“The expression for freedom [επ ελευθερια - ep eleutheria] (in slightly different Greek form) appears in the certificates of sacral manumission which were given to slaves who purchased their freedom. The slave would deposit the money in the temple of his god for the priest to transfer to his master “for freedom.” He then became the slave of his god, free from his human master.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 545-546)  
“Among the Jews, the Messiah’s reign was to be a reign of liberty, and hence the Targum [ancient Jewish commentary] on Lamen. [Lamentations] ii. 22. says, “Liberty shall be publicly proclaimed to the people of the house of Israel, על יד משיחא âl yad Mashicha, by the hand of the Messiah, such as was granted to them by Moses and Aaron, at the time of the Passover.” (Clarke, 1831, vol. II p. 393)  
...
-5. And we, in spirit upon foundation [of] belief, waiting [מיחלים, MeYahHahLeeYM] to hope [for] fruit, the our righteousness [δικαιοσυνης - dikaiosunes, justification, righteousness].  
“The language is so compact that Paul’s meaning has to be inferred from 3:14; 5:22-23; and Rom. [Romans] 8:23-26.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 548-549)  
“The full measure of human righteousness is still a thing of the eschatological future (cf. [compare with] Rom 5:19).” (Joseph A. Fitzmyer, 1990, TNJBC p. 789)
“That they could not have the Holy Spirit, without faith, was a doctrine also of the Jews; hence it is said, Mechilta, fol. [folio] 52. ‘That faith was of great consequence, with which the Israelites believed in Him, who, with one word, created the universe; and because the Israelites believed in God, the Holy Spirit dwelt in them; so that being filled with God, they sung praises to him.’” (Clarke, 1831, vol. II pp. 393-394)  
-6. That yes, in Anointed YayShOo'ah ["Savior", Jesus] there is no thought [חשיבות, HahSheeYBOoTh], not to circumcision [למילה, LahMeeYLaH] and not to foreskin [לערלה, Lah`ahRLaH], rather to belief, the laborer in way [of] love.  
“No passage in Paul’s letters is of greater importance for integral understanding of his religion and the relation of his faith to his ethics. The mutuality of faith, hope, and love – a theme repeated with many variations – runs through everything he has written and forms the substance of his theology. … Paul’s religion is distorted whenever his ethics and his ‘good works’ are made to appear as an incidental by-product of his faith rather than as one of its essential ingredients.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 550-551)  
“This humble, holy, operative, obedient LOVE, is the grand touchstone of all human creeds, and confessions of faith. Faith, without this, has neither soul nor operation: in the language of the apostle James, it is dead, and can perform no function of the spiritual life, no more than a dead man can perform the duties of animal or civil life.” (Clarke, 1831, vol. II p. 394)  
...
-12. Would that [מי יתן, MeeY YeeThayN] and be cut [ויכרתו, VeYeeKahRThOo] the misleaders [המתעים, HahMahTh`eeYM] [of] you!  
“‘I wish that those who are upsetting you would even emasculate themselves!’ This is what Paul said and meant. … for a similar outburst see Phil. [Philippians] 3:2-3, where the advocates of circumcision are ‘dogs,’ and by a play on words – περιτομη [peritome’], κατατομην [katatmen] - ‘circumcision’ becomes ‘mutilation.’ Paul may have been thinking of the mad spectacle of the Cybele-Attis cult, whose priests in frenzied devotion used to emasculate themselves as a sacrifice to their deity. … The shock of Paul’s statement to the Judaizers can be measured in the light of the prohibition in Deut. [Deuteronomy] 23:1. To a devout Jew his blunt language would be as sacrilegious as a Christian would find the wish of a disbeliever in sacraments that all advocates of baptism would drown themselves. Never happy after making such denunciations (II Cor. [Corinthians]1:23-2:11; Phil. 3:18-19), Paul quickly changes his tone…” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 554-555)  
-13. My brethren, to freedom you have been called,
only that not be, the freedom, means [אמצעי, ’ehMTsah`eeY] in hands of the flesh,
rather that minister, [each] man [את, ’ehTh (indicator of direct object; no English equivalent)] his neighbor in love.  
“To be freed from the ceremonial law, is the Gospel liberty; to pretend freedom from the moral law, is antinomianism.” (Clarke, 1831, vol. II p. 395)  
-14. See, all the Instruction included [כלולה, KLOoLaH] in saying [במאמר, BeMah’ahMahR] one – “and love to your neighbor like you.”  
“The quotation is from Lev. [Leviticus] 19:18; cf. Rom. 13:8-10 [and Matt. [Matthew] 7:11 (Joseph A. Fitzmyer, 1990, TNJBC p. 789)]. The tense of the verb ‘fulfilled’ is perfect; thus Paul says that the whole law is fulfilled, in the sense of ‘has been fulfilled’ whenever one man loves another as himself…. Paul the Christian loved his neighbor not because a commandment disobeyed would bring punishment, or fulfilled would merit reward, but because it was his new nature to do to.  
But who was Paul’s neighbor? He was, first of all, ‘the one who was near,’ the fellow member of the society of Christ who needed help to bear life’s burdens (6:2). Then, with continuously lengthening radius, Paul drew a series of concentric circles to embrace all men (6:10; I Thess. [Thessalonians] 5:15; I Cor. 9:22). Even his enemies were included, for Christ received sinners, and personal vengeance was no fruit of the Spirit (6:1; Rom. 12:20; 15:1-3). … He bore the burden of his neighbor’s sins, and although he sometimes had to threaten them, he was never without hope for their repentance (I Cor. 4; II Cor. 12:19-13:10; II Thess. 3:14-15). He could hurl anathemas, and his friends did not always find him easy to get on with … but the love of Christ would never permit him to contract the circle of his neighbors (Rom. 9:1-3; 10:1; II Cor. 7:5-16; 1:23-2:11). (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X p. 557)  
...  
…………………………………………  
Fruit of the Spirit and usurpations of [ומעללי, OoMah`ahLahLaY] the flesh
[verses 16 to end of chapter]  
-16. Say I to you, walk in way the spirit and do not fill [את, ’ehTh] desires [תאוות, Thah`ahVOTh] [of] the flesh,
-17. for the flesh desires [מתאוה, MeeTh’ahVeH] to what that is in opposition [שבנגוד, ShehBeNeeGOoD] to spirit, and the spirit is opposed [מתנגדת, MeeThNeGehDehTh] to the flesh. [The] two [of] them oppose to this to this, and to that [ולכן, OoLeKhayN] you are not able to do [את, ’ehTh] what that is in your want.  
“This is Paul’s way of stating the Jewish doctrine of the ‘two impulses’ which are at war within the heart of man. The rabbis declared that God created Adam with two inclinations, one good, the other evil, and required him to choose which to obey. He was free to follow his good impulse, but he chose the evil, and so did all his descendants. Consequently every man became the Adam of his own soul. Some maintained that the evil impulse awakened at the age of nine, others at twelve. Study with practice of the Torah was the sovereign remedy to wear it away …” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 561)  

-19. Deeds of the flesh are revealed [גלויים, GLOoYeeYM], and these are they:
adultery [נאוף, Nee’OoPh] and fornication, impurity [טמאה, TooM’aH], licentiousness [זמה, ZeeMaH], 20. slavery of idols, magic [כשוף KeeShOoPh in my Hebrew New Testamenti ; the Greek here is “φαρμακεια pharmakeia - the use of drugs of any kind, whether wholesome or poisonous...” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X p. 562] hatred, contention [מדון, MahDON], stinginess [צרות עין, TsahROoTh 'ahYeeN, “squint eyed”, Ζηλος Zelos jealousy], anger [כעס, Kah'ahÇ], strife [מריבה, MeReeYBaH], divisions [מחלקות, MahHLahQOTh], factions [כתות, KeeThOTh], 21. envy, drunkenness, profligacy [הוללות,HOLeLOoTh], and as similar.  
Say I to what that I already said: doers of deeds like these will not inherit [את, ’ehTh] kingdom of the Gods.  
“Πορνεια [Porneia] ... fornication ... means ‘prostitution’, but includes sexual vice and unfaithfulness to the marriage vow. The task of the church in creating a conscience on this matter was made doubly difficult by the practice of prostitution in the name of religion. Long before Paul, the prophets had denounced the fertility cults and made prostitution a synonym for idolatry.  
Φαρμακεια [pharmakeia] ... Since witches and sorcerers used drugs, the word came to designate witchcraft, enchantment, sorcery, and magic. The law of Moses prescribed the death penalty for it, and the prophets denounced the Egyptians, Babylonians and Canaanites for practicing it; but this did not prevent the Jews from producing some famous practitioners (Acts 13:6-12; 19:1-20). Next to state-worship, magic was the most dangerous competitor of true religion... claiming to specialize in the impossible, it prostituted faith to superstition, and divorced religion from ethics. ... In Paul’s spiritual arithmetic, faith plus miracles minus love amounted exactly to zero....  
Ερις [Eris] is ... strife ... The spirit of Eris is perfectly described in the words of Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland – ‘ambition, distraction, uglification, and derision.’  
The fact that he expected the near return of Christ to end this present age must not be permitted to obscure the equally important fact that he regarded his own life and witness for Christ as an essential element in hastening that event.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 561-565)  
-22. In opposition to [לעמת, Le`ooMahTh] this, fruit of spirit:
he is love, happiness, peace, patience, [ארך רוח, ’oRehKh Roo-ahH, “length [of] spirit”] generosity, good heart, faithfulness, 23. modesty [עננה, `ahNahNaH], restraint [רסון, ReeÇOoN] [of] self– upon such [מדות, MeeDOTh] as these there is no instruction further [חלה, HahLaH, sic ["so in cite"] for חלאה, HahL’aH!].  
“Since love is a personal relation it is not a matter of law, and cannot be commanded; and since it is God’s own love growing as his ‘fruit’ in the hearts of men, no one can claim it as a merit for self-salvation. ...  
... in every age ... men have found it hard to see how God could have anything in common with humanity, and Christians have been tempted to make a distinction in kind between God’s love and man’s love. Paul’s authority has been claimed for this dualistic view. Αγαπη [agape’] is set against ερος [eros]. God’s love is said to be αγαπη reaching down to save man by his grace, and ερος man’s self-love aspiring upward to save himself. Paul’s αγαπη is associated with justification by faith, the Greek ερος with salvation by works.... Jerusalem and the Christian faith are made to oppose Athens and human reason, and the conclusion is drawn from the history of Christianity that ερος, man’s self love, has always been a source of corruption of αγαπη, love inspired by God’s grace.  
This interpretation of Christian love is intended as a defense of the doctrine of justification by faith and as a means of securing scriptural support for a dualistic philosophy which aims to protect the transcendence of God against humanism. But to draw such sweeping conclusions from a word study of two Greek nouns, without adequate consideration of other related Greek words and ideas, is to oversimplify. The LXX [The Septuagint, the ancient Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible] is full of evidence that this distinction between αγαπη and ερος cannot be maintained on the basis of lexicography. The Greek O.T. [Old Testament] uses both the noun αγαπη and the verb αγαπαω [agapao] to express not only God’s love for men, but man’s love for God and for his fellow man. Although there is no certain evidence that the noun αγαπη was used by nonbiblical writers prior to Christianity, the argument from silence may be invalidated by future discoveries, and it would be precarious to conclude that αγαπη was a specifically Christian word.  
One-sided emphasis on God’s love as ‘unmotivated’ by anything in his creatures tempts men to regard him in the light of an egotistical philanthropist who expects gratitude and praise but neither needs nor desires the mutuality that is inherent in the very nature of love... Without a faith that dares humbly to believe that God needs man’s love ... the Christian’s conception of his high calling to be a kingdom builder is liable to reduce itself to blind obedience to commands given arbitrarily for man’s good while awaiting God’s eschatological fiat. Such a misconception is bound to give aid and comfort to the inclination of human nature – ‘the flesh’ – to divorce religion from ethics.  
Grave moral consequences result from such a view of Christian love. It is associated with a doctrine of predestination that makes God’s choice of the objects of his salvation utterly arbitrary.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 565-566)  
“The peace which was the fruit of the Spirit ... could be trusted to keep men's hearts and minds (Phil. 4:7), so that they need have not anxiety about anything. This explains the sublime recklessness of the Christian peacemakers. Being colaborers with God (Rom. 8:28), they were aggressors for peace. They aimed to live at peace with all men (Rom. 12:18), but fear of making enemies did not turn them from their task of producing soundness, wholeness, and harmony in a world of chaos. Their reasonable service was to ... substitute the righteousness and peace and joy of his [God's] kingdom (Rom. 14:17) for the low aims of 'the flesh,' thereby creating the conditions for peace. Their ideal was to live so that quarrels could never get started.  
Christian peace was therefore neither the calm of inactivity nor the mere passive enjoyment of freedom from strife. It was not the imperturbability of the Epicurean, or the apathy of the Stoic, or the contemplation of the mystic. The man who possessed it was not exempt from storm and shipwreck, but by faith he knew that he would arrive in port (Acts 27:21-25), and that all was well for him and his fellow men of faith ... And so, where all else was panic, he played the man.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 567)  
“... just as God’s patience was not to be presumed upon, so the Christian’s patience was not a spiritless good nature that would put up with things which it could not escape, or would not prevent. It was patience with a purpose, as in Paul’s pleas to Philemon, which contrasts so sharply with the Stoic motive for self control... Those who bore this fruit ‘turned the world upside down’ (Acts 17:6), and the enemy did not know how to deal with such unheard of patience and persistence.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 568)  
“Negatively defined, gentleness is everything that the ‘insolent, haughty, boastful’ men of Rom. 1:30 are not. It is the opposite of υβρις [hubris], the worst of sins in the eyes of the Greeks – deliberate, arrogant defiance of the gods by overstepping the limits set for human beings. In the O.T. such men are called ‘sons of Belial,’ the turbulent, highhanded wicked, who rage against God, kill, rob and enslave the righteous ‘meek’ and take possession of the earth for themselves. The psalms are full of moans and complaints against this rich and powerful majority, who used religion as a means of gain and kept their consciences in flexible subservience to the exigencies of power.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 569)  
“’Εγκρατεια [Egkrateia] is temperance (KJV [King James Version]), self-control (RSV [Revised Standard Version]) ....  
The Stoics had helped to prepare the soil out of which this fruit of the Spirit was to grow. They insisted that the sovereign reason could and should control the passions. They believed in a law of nature to which they must conform, and they endeavored to maintain their inner freedom under all circumstances. But their motive was very different from Paul’s, the one being devoted to the glory of the God of grace, the other to the preservation of the sovereign self-will. When the Stoic collided with things beyond his control, his inner independence turned into apathy, practicing the motto ‘When we can’t do what we want, we want to do what we can.’ He took orders from his commander in chief, an impersonal God who had the power of life or death; but he did it in such a way as to make it clear to God and men that he, the Stoic, was after all the captain of his soul. He controlled his anger because he found it a nuisance to be under the power of any passion and in his sight meekness was contemptible weakness...  
Paul exalted humility: ‘It is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me’ (2:20). ... His self-discipline was the result of his spiritual experiences, rather than an undertaking to induce them; and his self-control was sane compared with the ascetic excesses of later Christian groups such as the ‘Encratites,’ who forbade marriage and followed fantastic dietary rules.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X pp. 569-570)  
“Unrepentant sinners have no appetite for the fruit of the Spirit, and when its production and distribution require changes in the political and economic status quo, men ... pass laws against it ... Especially in time of war these traits of Christian character have been forbidden fruit, though given for the healing of the nations. Occasionally the world, exhausted with fighting, and sick of its cynical Epicureanism, has professed a desire for the fruits of the Spirit, but on its own terms without the cross required to produce them.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB X p. 570)  
... 26. Do not, please [נא, Nah’] be panters of [שואפי, ShO’ahPhaY] honor vain [שוא, ShahVe’], the provokers [המתגרים, HahMeeThGahReeYM] and enviers [ומקנאים, OoMQahN’eeYM] a man in his neighbor.  
“The right stood in terror of the iconoclasm of the left, and the radicals labeled all other men reactionaries ... Both sides professed to love liberty and defend it, but neither was willing to grant it to the other.” (Stamm, 1953, TIB vol. X p. 572)   END NOTE

2023.06.09 17:14 Own-Claim-6217 How bad is street parking?

How bad is it really? Long time lurker, first time poster. I’m afraid the fear mongering has gotten to me.
My partner and I are moving to SF in early July and having a difficult time finding monthly parking options. We know to leave nothing in the car but I am still scared we will get smash and grabbed for no reason if we do decide to go with street parking. Car is a 2015 Lexus. We will be in Russian Hill near North Point and Hyde. Any advice (seriously about anything) is welcome!

How can I make better organization for electric cables?
I am using a small power bar to power Belkin power bar (inside network rack). Any recommendations for network PDU (in Canada).
Also, electric outlet is GFCI, and it trips off when I plugin printer. So, I moved it away. How can I stop tripping.
Please don't roast me for poor placement near plumbing. However, I appreciate for any recommendations to move it away. It is doable but takes network down for few hours.

2023.06.09 17:12 ducttapeallday My Majestic Mirage experience

This is just my story so take from it what you will. My wife and 2 kids went to DR with another family of 4. All inclusive swim up room , booked in the family suites (as opposed to the “adult” buildings). Upon arrival we were booked in and given keys. Went to the room… which ended up being in the adult building. Not sure still what distinguishes one from the other but i didnt care. It was late thanks to flight delay and i just wanted to chill. Upon entering the room the odor of piss punched me in the face. It literally smelled like a parking garage stairwell. But as i said it was late and i had a few drinks and figured we settle it the next day. At Mirage they assign you a butler, who really did do his best. So the following day i mentioned this to him and he said hed take care of it. I went to the pool for the afternoon and got a text saying housecleaning did aroma therapy and extra cleaning. When i went back to the room I expected to notice a difference but now it was a combo of pee and a god awful air freshener. I told our butler we needed a new room. I was not obnoxious about it. They granted my wish…. To the room right next door. Guess what? Smelled in there too. I asked again to move but this time they were insistent that it can be taken care of. I said unacceptable and requested a move to the family section where we were booked. This apparently was an issue. They told me it gets this way and theyd bring me a dehumidifier… which they did , which did nothing. I could not fathom how these folks thought this was nothing. It was pungent. Eventually we moved again… but i had to accept a non swim up suite…. But it was nice , smelled good and the pools were still only seconds away.
Moving on ….. even though its all inclusive this obviously doesn’t mean you aren’t going to spend money , mainly on tips and trinkets…. Its part of doing business. However i feel like the pressure to tip here is unprofessional for a resort of this supposed stature. I tip well for a job well done… but it seemed like i was always being solicited for something. I wore a Red Sox hat … so often a convo would begin with someone who works there about Big Papi…. That quickly turns into a sales pitch for photos…. Jewelry… excursions… etc. Im good at saying im all set but some of these dudes are relentless to the point its not comfortable.
The actual pools were awesome met some nice folks. But par for the course mixed drinks taste like they use artificial sweeteners and are weak. The beer selection is comical…. Coors Light, Heineken and Presidente …. Thats it. My suggestion is stick to rum and coke… you know exactly whats going into the glass. There are a couple of nice bars that if you tip well they proof up you cocktails…. But at a resort like this should i have to?
The food was okay. We were a big group and the buffets were popular with us. Lots of the food was fine but things like cold cuts, cheeses, shrimp and sushi arent made for outdoor buffets in 98 degree weather. The restaurants also were underwhelming. Dined at the steak house twice and the teppanyaki place once. These meals were not high caliber. The steak house was non reservation so they try and get you in and out ASAP… which guess is par for the course. The portions were small and they didnt cook the steak as ordered. The Japanese place was also fast paced , despite a reservation . Food was delicious (my kids ate the scrimp fried rice with eggs and they hate seafood and eggs) but once again the portions were a joke. Room service is what it is. Takes minimum an hour and its just mediocre at best. The night we arrives i order the “Chicken Breast Dinner with potatoes and vegetables” i got 2 grilled oversalted chicken tenders with a side of still chilled potatoes. No veggie at all. Snacks and soft drinks as well as the limited beer selection was replenished daily.
Not be entirely down on the place…. Its a nice place. The entertainers and help staff are great. They seem enthusiastic and are good at getting folks up and moving. Obviously the beach is gorgeous and the water beautiful. We went and swam with sharks and stingrays …. Went bottom walking with the space helmets and had a nice party at a sand bar. Once again drinks weak and cheese sandwiches were the lunch we were served. I also went golfing- free green fee but carts and rentals cost some cash. The course was all ours , which was awesome… i saw some cool wildlife and the course is in good shape given the heat. At the turn we got a saran wrapped chicken salad sandwich with almost no chicken in it.
The pool is where spent most of our time and all around the pool are walk out suites. For the first 4 days we were there, a woman allowed her what seemed like a 6 year old kid frolic around buck naked on their outside cabana bed. This suite was literally 30 feet from the swim up bar. Bizarre.. no one ever told her to cover him up- she didnt care. I just set up shop away from them but it stuck how strange the scene was.
The casino is nothing to write home about. We play some roulette. A girl with our group turned 20 bucks into 200 and you think we were in Vegas the way they kept eyeballing her and changing the person spinning the ball. The “pit boss” stayed put right up until she cashed out.
And just to put a cherry on top…. The day we were leaving….. i needed more cash to tip the butler. I had tipped 20-30 a day everyday but ran out of USD The 1 atm at Mirage was out of service …. I walked to the next resort…. Elegance and their atm was down. I walked back and told Jeffry our butlet id borrow some cash from our friends and take care of him. He offered to take me to their 3rd property…so we went and the atm there promptly ate my card.
I had fun …. I can have a good time under any circumstances and my kids had a ball and thats what i pay the money for …. But i expected much more from this place. I was disappointed. I wont return again.

2023.06.09 17:12 kittyroux Bra suggestions for 38F-ish short, narrow roots?

Hello! I have lost 40 lbs and now my bras don’t fit.
My measurements:
BUST
UNDERBUST
The calculator gives me 38G, but my 38FF bras are on the tightest hook and at least a half size too large in the cup. I have very short and somewhat narrow roots which I figure are leading the calculator to expect more boob volume than I actually have. My shape is projected with even fullness in all directions. I’m pretty closely set, only about a centimetre of space in the middle.
My bras:
  1. Flirtelle Thalia 38FF in black. This bra used to fit really well, but now the cups are very wrinkly. The wires are nearly narrow enough (still maybe a centimetre too wide) and the cups are about the right height, maybe a little too tall still. I would probably fit a 38F well now, my only issues with this bra being that the gore is a bit too wide, the non-stretch lace shows badly under thin tops, it’s not very cute, and it only comes in black and a very yellow light beige (I am a very pink light beige).
  2. Panache Ana 38FF in sweet lavender and vintage. This bra has always been technically ill-fitting but I like it quite a bit anyway. It’s shallow and for tall roots so I have a gap at the top of the cup, but with the stretch lace it’s not uncomfortable and was not very noticeable before, though the cups are fully too big now. The wires are about a full inch too wide and the tall cups hurt my armpits a little after a full day. The gore is nice and low, so it’s not too wide for me there. The bra is very cute too.
  3. Curvy Kate Flutterby 38FF in pink/lilac. This bra does not fit and never did. I bought it because I loved the colours but it is uncomfortable in every way. It has vertical boning in the band that curves and digs in at the top and bottom, the gore feels like it’s punching me in the sternum, the wires are so wide the straps dig in to my armpits and shoulders, and the cups wrinkle at the top. I can‘t wear it for more than a few hours.
Additionally I’ve tried Panache Envy 38FF in black and had to return it, but I don’t remember the specific fit issues. I think it was too small in the band at the time.
I’d love specific brand and style suggestions since I have to buy online and returns options aren’t great in Canada. Thanks in advance!

2023.06.09 17:10 Mortennif Here are changes I would make for every killer

Trapper - Any survivor tampering with bear traps suffers from Exposed, Oblivious, Hindered by 50%, Blindness, Exhausted, Broken and has their aura revaled. All of this for 600 seconds
Wraith - Wraith can now smack survivors from beneath his cloak
Hillbilly - When chainsaw overheats it explodes killing everyone in the trial
Nurse - She starts taking pain blocking medicine and no longer goes into fatigue after blinking
Huntress - Hatchets have mini propellers installed that guide them towards the survivors
Doctor - Survivors in madness 1, 2 or 3 see ilusionary palletes, windows, lit hex totems, generators, chests, doctors and other survivors. They remain there until action associated with them is completed, after which they disapear
Hag - wiping away the traps triggers them (to wipe them you need to touch them)
Shape - Adds Evil Within 4. While in it the Shape can grab and murder any survivor and he has 150% haste
Cannibal - going near a hook while using your chainsaw will refill all tokens
Nightmare - While in the dream world unmutable baby shark song plays at all times.
Pig - Jigsaw boxes are rigged and none of them contain the key
Clown - Yellow bottles now smell like piss
Spirit - it is possible to disattach body parts to split up and search for survivors.
Legion - There is now 4 of them
Plague - untreated infection might cause the survivor to die
Ghost Face - Marking a survivor reveals their search history to all other survivors
Demo - Survivors can be grabbed into upside down, a place with 0 palettes or windows
Oni - You can pull out the club while not it blood fury
Deathslinger - Instead of the redeemer you use an AK-47
Pyramind Head - While suffering from torment survivors get visions of their cringiest memories
Blight - New serum formula allows the blight to fly
Twins - Victor is now a grow up adult that hunts survivors by himself
Trickster - blades can go through walls
Nemesis - any stars members suffer from exposed and can be moried for the duration of the trial
Pinhead - solving the box requires the player to solve an unsloved before integral.
Artist - Any crows on the map start swarming survivors
Sadako - TV's now spawn in every trials. Watching them causes sadako to spawn and having 2 killers in one trial (or 5 in legions case)
Dredge - Going near a survivor for 3 seconds will consume them and add them to the dredge
Wesker - after 7 minutes everyone is sacrificed
Knight - All 3 guards will find a gen each and kick it whenever possible
Skull Merchant - She gets replaced by the Predator
Singularity - 3D printers' nozzles randomly jam, requring the survivors to spend 2 hours trying to unjam them
I do believe these would be great changes for each of the killers. Let me know what you think

2023.06.09 17:10 Ninni00 Me(21M) and my friend(23F) talked about our relationship again and things got different.

Hi everyone, I have updates on my last post in this sub. thanks again for the advice. they were very helpful.🥰
For context: me and this girl are really nice friends, she host me at her home during the University lesson, every 2 week, and thing were great. I started have feeling for her but she was not corresponding me, so we decided to be just Friends.
It's been 4 months after that,, and everything with her went ok, that was fine with me, we had so many good times, I was Honestly happy. But it happened one night (8 days ago) that we ended up talking about it again, she asked me. we solved it quietly , "just friends" we say, BUT the following morning, on the train, she started crying in front of me thinking back to the night before, and after returning home in the evening, she went to sleep saying she felt tired. After a few hours she entered my room telling me that when she's with me she feels great, she thinks that no one understands her better than me, and that she would like to start a relationship with me but the distance between us ( I live in Sicily and her in Lombardy) blocks her. (I then told her that I would move near her house if we got together. It will be difficultbut I would do that.) in the end, she told me that she has confused ideas and that she wanted to stay a week without talking to clear her ideas about this situation, 2 days after the talk, I returned to my home since the lessons were over. The next Monday I have the flight to go to her again, and I will stay until Saturday. What are your ideas on this?
TL;DR! : after telling me to just be friends now she tells me she would like to be with me but she's insecure because of the distance between us.

2023.06.09 17:10 Mads-N Problem coworker

So I (22f) work as a waitress at a restaurant with a bartender (40s-50sf) who I’ll call Becky. Becky has been there for years, and seems pretty friendly with the managers who have also been there for years.
Becky isn’t a manager, but she acts like she is one. She’s constantly telling me what to do, and recently it’s felt like she’s gone out of her way to belittle or condescend to me. Like calling my side work my “little chores” and telling me to stop because helping her is more important.
There are some drinks that for whatever reason don’t print out a ticket, so I have to go and physically ask her to make the drink. Half the time Becky straight up tells me ‘no’ and to go ask someone else, even though it’s literally her job. It’s infuriating because as a waitress, I have to tip bar out, so I’m literally paying her to refuse to make drinks for me.
Becky also guilt trips me over text a lot to try and get me to give her my shifts. She’ll say how she’s having trouble making rent, and that she really needs my shift. I’ll admit that I’ve given in to her too many times, but I felt bad for her. I’ve learned my lesson on that front, though, and I’ve blocked Becky’s number.
I feel like I should talk to a manager about this, but I’m nervous. Like I said before, Becky’s been there forever, and she’s pretty buddy-buddy with most of the managers. She’s also gotten employee of the month multiple times, one of those times being literally this morning.
Honestly, I just want to not work with her anymore. At the end of the summer my schedule will be changing to accommodate my classes, and we won’t be working together anymore. Should I just wait it out? Or if I talk to a manager, what should I say/how should I phrase it so they’ll believe me and take me seriously?

2023.06.09 17:09 moomoomeow2 Today I Completed Drops.

Hey friends,
Today I completed every unit of the language-learning app, Drops. Drops is a vocabulary app with a lot of different language choices. Every day, you are given five minutes to learn your vocabulary using a variety of methods like word-matching and spelling. The vocabulary is split into related units, such family, Christmas, or shopping.
I got a job to teach English in Andalusia nearly two years ago. Problem was, I didn't know Spanish. So I started using Drops' Spanish (Castilian) course to learn basic vocabulary for when I lived there. I no longer live in Spain (sadly) but kept using Drops because I want to achieve higher proficiency in Spanish.
Drops was very helpful and I recommend to people who are looking to improve their vocabulary. It has a huge expanse of vocabulary (I've learned over 3500 words in the app). I also like the pictures it uses to explain concepts with simply translating to English. It even has units for learning pronunciation and the language's script.
There are some things I don't like, though. In order to unlock certain units, you have to complete certain units within the same subject. This means the user may not be able to learn certain vocabulary unless he learns others first. On the other hand, some of the units may not be useful. The longest unit for me was Racing, which had 31 terms (most units only have about 17). Similarly, some units may not apply to the user; for me, the units Gender Transitioning and Extreme Sports don't present super relevant vocabulary. This can be an issue if a more desirable unit is locked behind another, less relevant unit.
All this being said, I consider Drops a useful language-learning resource. Feel free to comment if you have any questions!
