2023.03.26 00:57 katethrowaway797979 For some reason thinking about this person made me relapse.
Just venting, but it's nice if someone here can relate.
For some reason I don't care much for this person now. I know they're toxic and I have cut them off. I blocked them recently, but curiousity killed the cat and I looked them up, forgetting how I felt about them. They don't know I self harm and I would never tell them I do.
I became triggered and I self harmed. This person essentially stalked me in public, played mind games with me too (but there is more to it than just this). I was very anxious when thinking about him.
It lasted for almost 5 years until I realised nothing good could come out of this. A while afterwards, I stumbled upon him on another site, talking to other women. He was already in a relationship too. What sucked is that for whatever reason, at the time I felt something genuine. Maybe I was young and dumb, but I'm glad nothing came of it.
I don't know why. I suddenly felt a rush of anxiety and this triggered me to self harm. Maybe it's a build up of other things going on in my life at the moment, but this seemed to be the one things which triggered me.
The good news is that I now have my scar as a reminder to never look him up again. Never go out of my way to try and reconnect with him, because it's clearly disruptive to my mental health.

Received this letter in my best friend's mailbox. I read the part about the "investor wanting to buy another property in the area" and I just saw red. Given that people can't even find a place to live, this just seems incredibly tone deaf. submitted by steamoven to GoldCoast [link] [comments]
2023.03.26 00:57 ThrowingAwaySock The same 2 numbers keep showing up.
I notice a few years ago that the same 3 digit number kept popping up. It would be on the clock when I'd look up or when someone caught my attention. It would be a highway marker when I looked up from my phone. It would be the hotel room number randomly assigned to me. It would be on a liscence plate infront of me on a long drive. Multiple times it would be the comment count on a post I scrolled past. I have seen this number consistently every day or two for over 5 years.
Sometime last year, a second set of three digit numbers started to randomly continuesly pop up. Often within 5 minutes of the other. It would be the liscence plate in front of me, while the other number would be an exit on the highway we passed. The frequency would increase if I were going through something difficult, like, I see those two numbers 3 or 5 times throughout the day.
I think the glitch has something to do with trauma. I can't point when I first started noticing the first set of numbers. But I think I started noticing the second set shortly after, at the time, something that was almost a tragedy.
I was away from home for work. My spouse was home looking after the kids. After a long day we have a catch-up about our days. They bring up that they slept in and couldn't find the toddlers in their room. After much searching, found them playing in the (indoor) hot tub. Our toddlers don't know how to swim. They somehow got the hot tub lid half off and played for who knows how long. I felt sick to my stomach to think what could have happened. I've felt very off since that phone call. Everything has felt like it wasn't real. I started noticing that second number pop up. I also noticed I started having strong feelings from the call of the void. I would sit in my hotel room and I would be drawn to the balcony, I'd stare at the ground and have this incredible urge to jump. I wasn't depressed. I just felt the urge to not live anymore. This feeling lasted all summer. It eventually subsided.
The rest of the summer was a bunch of seemingly very close calls/ never heard before freak accidents that could have ended horribly to people around me, but no one ended up hurt, not a scratch.
I still feel like something is very off. Everyone I talk to seems unfamiliar to me. I'm treated differently. Personalities are slightly different. Even my spouse seems different. My kids are however, the same. I feel at home around them.
I think my kids died and I killed myself.

One of the raid drives finally died. Rather than invest more in this system I'm building a legitimate server. Feels like I'm losing an old friend.
They don't make them like this anymore.
2023.03.26 00:56 BendyShaft Who are our counters?
Pretty new to Yone and I’m using u.gg for my build and to see matchups and I’ve played against a lot of “losing” matchups but they honestly aren’t even bad if you play patient and I’m not even that good at Yone so I’m wondering what matchups are genuinely unwinnable.

2023.03.26 00:56 Upset-Somewhere624 My mother taught me to hate myself
Thank you for reading this.
I am 21. I hate doing skin care and eating healthy I neglect myself and my body. My boyfriend is very supportive but he asks me to take care of myself and dress well and present myself well.
I try to I’m pretty good at make up. But that’s all.
When I was younger around 6 and older my mother used to tell me my nose was too big, my skin colour was too dark and my hair was too frizzy as she didn’t know how to properly treat curly hair.
My mum had a friend and when I was around 11 my mum asked a waxing lady to wax down there and her friend was there, he friend proceeded to laugh at my vagina and make fun of it as it was apparently “ugly” and then I remember she tore my jeans and I had to walk home alone wearing torn jeans. Whilst my mum just sat there and let her do all that and laughed with her.
I have a lot more humiliating stories I just it’s too painful for me to recount.
Recently my mother went to stay at her friends for three months and she only calls me for money she hasn’t spoken to my dad in three months or my other siblings. She only calls me for money and tells me she loves me when I send her money.
My boyfriend doesn’t like my mother. He can see the effects she has had on me. She’s still my mother but when I confront her about the things she’s done she ignores it and gets defensive.
So I hate myself because of her and she’s constantly telling me I’m too fat even though I am a normal weight.
Should I just move out and cut her off? I don’t want to as I love her but the other day we were talking on the phone and the same friend was listening to our whole conversation and I didn’t know she was there.
UHM so idk what happened here but what would anyone else do in this situation?

2023.03.26 00:56 f86sabreATL 3 Week Notes
I’ve had my 2023 EUV for 3 weeks now. I’m close to 750 miles. Windows are tinted. License plate showed up a couple of days ago. I’m going to put in for the Alternate Fuel Vehicle plate that allows for single passenger use of HOV lanes and free use of premium lanes. My primary way home from work doesn’t have any kind of HOV, but my alt routes do. Having options for ATL traffic are important. I did add a space shuttle sticker and a Darth Vader TIE Fighter to the back window.
The only real thing to note is how unremarkable owning and driving this car is. I mean that in a 100% positive way. It does exactly what is expected in a way you would expect it to. It looks fine, drives fine and is reasonably comfy. No issues with charging. Using L1 at home now, but we are a few weeks out from having the garage done and that will get us to L2. L2 charging is available at work.
Only thing that I’m even thinking of busting out the wrenches for is seeing if there is any way to get the driver’s seat to go lower. I’m coming from a 05 Mini Cooper and an 03 Evo, so I like sitting lower in the car.
So, happy owner thus far!

Yo guys, I switched to a z53 kraken with lian li uni fans, from an evga clc 240mm with the same fans...
My temps use to be 29-30°c on idle and 89°c with cinebench r23 and 16000 score on multi core test with 4.7mhz boost
Temps are terrible with the kraken. I'm getting 37-45°c on idle and it goes to 90°c half way through the 10min test and my boost is stuck around 4.4mhz, cinebench r23 test and I'm getting 14500 points in multi core test...
I also switched to a Corsair 4000D from Meshify C, It's a new build but the same cpu pretty much, my motherboard use to be b550-f, switched to a x570 evga ftw board
Are these temps normal? Should I sandwich the aio with more fans?

2023.03.26 00:56 QuietContribution278 A fresh start with community help
Hey guys, I’m a published writer and a part-time graphic artist with a long time love for the RPG genre, both in video games and on the tables. I have a large background in game balance and UX. And as much as I love DND and some of the other systems, I’ve come to a bit of a realization in the past couple of months. The idea of DND seems to be a whole lot more interesting than the actual play can be sometimes, of course DND and other table tops are wonderfully and wickedly fun games, But there’s just certain things about them that seem to become less cool, the more you get in to them. Small problems with the way the systems work, cumbersome rules that don’t make sense, bad balance,and most troubling to me, systems that seem to have an insane amount of potential That were just never touched and left to be an afterthought.
All of that being said, I’m setting out to create a new tabletop RPG system with the help of the community and the following set of goals.
• the base, for the system is a mixture between Pathfinder and several additions of DND, I want to fix most of the major issues with the way those games are handled while still preserving enough familiarity that people who are familiar with those systems can pick it up in a reasonable amount of time.
• I want to remove some of the common roadblocks for the encouragement of diversity in build type. Ex. multi classing is a really cool idea in DND but unfortunately, if you were planning on playing a high level campaign, you can permanently miss out on some levels of your main class or even your cap stone by multi-classing, and it can hamper peoples willingness and likelihood to experiment and have fun with the system.
• balance. I want a system for more balanced, and 5e, where are the players have the ability to feel powerful without also feeling like they’ve invalidated the play experience. I want a smoother, more linear level, progression with a larger power cap. And I want more abilities, affect the world in Ways other than you just deal ask amount of damage. My goal is to have a few items as possible that are strictly for combat and maximize the ability for things to be used in interesting, unexpected ways.
• I want to expand on certain ideas like having more mythical medals other than just mithral and adamantium ect. And a magic system that has a greater physical component like runes at its center.
• I want to do away with the spell slot system, and use a more grounded and real feeling type of magic, with a life point cost system instead of a separate and cumbersome resource.
• most importantly, though I want to create a system that encourages people to play through high levels. A system that actively is built and designed for people to be able to play from levels one to what ever, where your campaign doesn’t just ended with nowhere when you reached the level cap, and you don’t just get bored somewhere at 13th level and decide to start over because the material wasn’t designed for you to be that strong.
Of course, nothing is set in stone and I am making this post to try to get community feedback on some of my ideas so if anyone has any ideas for things that they would like to see you in a system or ways they would change how it’s handled in DND or pathfinder I would love to talk to you in the comments

2023.03.26 00:56 TigerLily4415 Some (long winded) thoughts on healing
Sorry if this is kind of random and incoherent, but I had a realization, so I figured why not post about it. It’s a positive thing so I hope it’s relatable to others here. Near the end there’s some mention of how I experienced religious trauma, so TW if you’re not in a good place right now.
Today I was just chilling at home and I watched a YouTube video of Mickey Atkins (who’s a therapist and uploads about mental health) reacting to another video of Girl Defined spewing their typical, toxic tradwife nonsense. And if you’re lucky enough to have never heard of GD, “toxic” is really an understatement, all these fundie chicks talk about is how you shouldn’t have your own identity but instead give yourself up to God, how self-compassion is selfish, sexuality is shameful, etc. I think Mickey has been an atheist all her life, but her horrified expressions and detailed professional criticisms of the doctrines really said it all. She doesn’t just cover religion, I recommend checking her channel out.
I’ve renounced my faith for about six months now (yay) and I’m honestly in a good place. No one’s ever going to be perfect, but it’s the happiest I’ve been in a while, and I’d say I’m done with actively deconstructing Christianity. Am I going to have new experiences and continue passively deconstructing it? I’m sure I will. But the point is, I’m now focused on what’s next for me. So I didn’t watch this video for the purpose of deconstruction, but a curiosity of how a therapist breaks things down because I’m interested in maybe becoming a therapist too. I loved what Mickey had to say, but I think it hit a little too close to home, having to hear the brainwashed fundies robotically repeat these harmful messages that used to plague my mind. I couldn’t stand them presenting it innocently like “oh this is just my opinion!” and not mentioning all the emotional manipulation it entails, or how children are indoctrinated into this being objective truth.
Nothing wrong with Mickey’s video btw, I love that her insights could benefit some people, but the source content bothered me. GD was insufferable and just reminded me of my life’s lowest point, so I only got halfway through the video. I turned it off.
Then it hit me, I turned it off. I can do that now.
I can turn it off, and that’s a huge improvement from last summer, where such a thing would send me into an anxious obsessive spiral, to the point I couldn’t sleep sometimes, where I’d be crying on the drive to work, back when my mind took these things way too seriously. With the ever looming threat of eternal fire, I’d panic to do the mental gymnastics and rationalize that the Bible doesn’t contain the horrible ideas that it does. I’d find my own sense of peace, and then work backwards to find verses and make the religion fit. This wasn’t done maliciously or even consciously half the time, and I think every religious person does it to some degree. But when I (often) wasn’t successful at it, I’d have to assume that “God” is perfect, therefore I’m the problem. I wasn’t “allowed” to be mad at God which only made things worse. I constantly felt broken and that I was wrong for wanting to be myself, to be happy, and approach my life practically rather than by black and white definitions in an ancient book. The distress was internal and paralyzing. I couldn’t control my own thoughts.
How I came to be an atheist is a complicated matter that could be it’s own post. I’ll spare you the transition period, but where I am now is like night and day difference.
Now, I become distressed by religion, I recognize that it’s external. I can simply turn it off, and almost immediately feel fine again. I can just go about my day like anyone else. When Mickey started laughing at them, saying “Wow you simp for an imaginary man”, I truly felt that. That’s really what it is when you remove the fear tactics. It’s just not relevant to me anymore, it’s no longer my life. My current life, my authentic, science-backed, emotionally stable worldview is wide, and sees Christianity the same way I’ve always seen other religions, just as a bizarre cultural phenomenon. A sad example of the many folleys of the human mind.
When I say I laughed, I mean I laughed at the absurdity of Christianity, not so much at the women themselves. If anything, I pity them. That may sound condescending, but I truly mean it. It’s heartbreaking to look back and see people waste the one life they have trapped in this ideology. You don’t see how miserable you were until you make it over the fence. Maybe I’m just projecting my own experience, but I don’t believe that any extremist Christian, deep down, is happy. They’re just gaslighted into thinking that they’re “supposed” to be, but it’s only thinly veiled smugness. It’s a vicious cycle of people turning back to religion for “solutions” to problems they don’t realize were created by religion in the first place. Like when they talked about “worldly desires” not filling the void like Jesus does, do they realize that most people don’t think they deserve to burn for existing as a human? That void is self inflicted, and knowing much religion harps on “you don’t believe hard enough”, I doubt it’s actually filled as much as they claim it is. It’s a lot of exhausting mental and emotional work, it’s a whole lot of lying to yourself. I know it’s easy to hate on these people, maybe I’m too kind. But I’ve been there before. Not justifying it at all, but any fundie who hurts others with their faith is surely hurting themselves. I wish I could help but you can’t make a horse drink. I see these people now, and even though we all have flaws, I feel a mixture of luck and relief when I sincerely think to myself, “God damn, I’m just so glad I’m not you.”
Thanks to anyone who read all this, I didn’t intend for it to be so long. Best of luck on your individual healing journey.
TL;DR: I watched a video of a therapist criticizing Christian fundies, found it a bit triggering so I turned it off. I reflected on how dogma doesn’t control my mind like to used to, and just ramble on about how religion harms people.
This post isn’t about the video itself but I’ll link it if anyone asks. :)

2023.03.26 00:56 Complete-Tangelo-447 VOC vs Temp
Airthings View Plus
I have noticed ambient home temperature effects VOC readings. Located in Florida and I like inside temperature of 78 F (+/- 1 degree) at 50% humidity. Typical VOC readings are in the 200-250 ppb. Put on a jacket and lower temperature to 75 F and at 45% humidity and VOC readings are in the 60-80 ppb.
I guessing building materials etc effect the readings. I hate cold weather :-)

2023.03.26 00:56 StepwiseUndrape574 GTA 6 Launch Windows Possibly Outed By Take-Two SEC Filing, Here's What We Know
Video game publisher Take-Two has one of the biggest video game franchises on the market thanks to Grand Theft Auto. The latest game in the franchise is GTA V, which is still incredibly popular despite having launched way back in 2013. Recently, Take-Two filed a 10-K with the SEC that shows what the company plans to spend on marketing over the next five years. That form showed that in fiscal 2024, more money would be spent on marketing than any other fiscal year over the next five years.
The marketing spend for fiscal 2024 ending March 31, 2024, is $89 million, more than twice the amount for other years listed on the form. Analyst Jeff Cohen from investment firm Stephens believes that massive marketing budget will coincide with the launch GTA VI. In other words, the filing suggests the highly anticipated video game may be several more years out than many fans expected.
gta v planes Being a publicly-traded company, Take-Two is required to file a 10-K with financial details each year that outlines its marketing spending for the next five years. The last 10-K form filed in May 2019 showed a spike in marketing costs in fiscal 2023, but that spike has now been shifted to fiscal 2024. Many companies have delayed major projects by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic that forced workers to operate from home and shut down production across the world.
Cohen pointed out that marketing spending has been an accurate predictor of the launch of major games from Take-Two in the past. For example, a marketing spending increase was noted on the 10-K form during the launch year for Red Dead Redemption 2, well before that game was announced. GTA VI is expected to launch sometime between April 2023 and March 2024 according to the filing, assuming there are no further delays.
Past rumors suggested a 2021 launch date, so a launch no sooner than April 2023 is a long time away for gamers. With GTA V and GTA Online still incredibly popular, Rockstar wouldn't be in a rush to launch the new game. And a delayed launch would also ensure that the game is optimized for next-generation Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles.

2023.03.26 00:55 alecubudulecu Reduced power recoil spring for G34 build?
Built a G34 - and I got it pretty close to functioning on first build. Did the polishing of the rails and internals …. Can’t say it’s as smooth as my gen5 G17, but it’s decent.
Issue. Lots of failures to feed. I suspect it’s due to slide not cycling fully. The ejection is very weak. Additionally …. +P ammo works fine. Cycles very well.
This leads me to think changing to a reduced power recoil spring would fix the issue. Opinions? (I’m using an OEM g17 gen3 spring ). Actually for now everything internally is OEM.
While I think it’d fix it. I’m more curious …. Think I’m just putting a bandaid on a bigger problem? Should I dig into what’s potentially causing it to not function as is with OEM?

2023.03.26 00:55 18cr what does this mean?
So about two months ago I (22F) reconnected with an old mutual friend (23M). We didn’t know each other well when we first rekindled, but we quickly grew close. It started when he’d come to my job to use the facilities and it quickly turned into him coming just to see me when I clocked out, and the majority of our hangouts were us talking for 3+ hours in my/his car. We did have one date, it lasted about 11 hours and it was amazing. We had a lot in common, whether it be certain POV’s or music taste. He was very respectful of my boundaries as I am slightly reserved/shy, and even stated he’d be “willing to work with” my hesitancy to open up right away.
In a short matter of time, we went from occasionally texting to communicating all day every day & seeing one another whenever we had days off from work. He made it very clear that he liked me, whether it be telling me I’m his go-to person, calling me gorgeous or complimenting me frequently. I could also tell by the way he looked at me. He even hinted at him wanting something official with me. I’m aware that moving this quickly is a red flag, as I have done much research on narcissism and love-bombing, but I was genuinely enchanted by him.
I recently went on a family vacation to Turks & Caicos and barely heard from him the duration of my stay. He did tell me twice he missed me, but his texts were still few and far between. I messaged him to inform him I was home, expecting him to be more communicative, but instead he thumbs-upped my message and I haven’t heard from him since. I tried to look past his silence while I was away and chalked it up to him not wanting to bother me on vacation but still, nothing.
I know I can be an overthinker, but I cannot help but feel like I’ve fallen victim to a love-bombing narcissist. This is the first person I’ve felt anything for in years, and am having a hard time coming to terms with the halt in communication. Also, we had planned a trip together two weeks after my return from Turks & Caicos. Nothing was set in stone, but we spoke about it quite a few times before I left for my trip. Should I cut my losses? Am I being too self-centered?

2023.03.26 00:55 Kaibaman94 I'm on episode 19 of season 1. Who is the main character?
At first I thought it was Thors. Then I thought it was Thorfinn. But then it blurred between Thorfinn and Askaladd. Now I feel like Askaladd is the MC. But now The Prince seems to be the focus
Thorfinn I guess from the opening is supposed to be the MC. But his whole character is extremely straightforward 'revenge'. He seems more like a side character, lost interest in him a long time ago. His character doesn't make sense and he's also extremely dumb.. Back in Vinland there's a hostile dude who keeps slaves (forgot his name) who I'm guessing was only being held back from wrecking Thors Village by Thors himself. In his absence I bet his village has been taken into slavery and dumbass Thorfinn hasn't even bothered to make an effort to go home and check in on his mother and sister..they're probably slaves now. It's not like he can't, I don't think Askaladd would even object to letting Thorfinn go, heck he was encouraging him to go away since he was a kid. Askaladds would also know Thorfinn would return to him anyway due to being obsessed with revenge in an honorable duel.
That's Another thing that doesn't make sense, Thorfinn is set on revenge in an honourable manner yet he has no honour himself, he's a mass murderer. He's killed women and children/been responsible for it even after being taken in and fed he still led Askaladds raid onto a village.
I get he was traumatised as a kid, but after all this time and what he's done himself he hasn't even self reflected once. Tbh I'm glad the focus isnt on Thorfinn, hope they give him some room to get over his obsession with revenge and actually go check in on his family sheesh.

2023.03.26 00:55 Specialist-Fan-2453 should I clip my African grey
Hi everyone , 20 yr old college student here, have had my African grey for about 8 years now. After years of living in the same environment, he is really starting to get bored. I do my best to entertain him whenever I can and I am pretty much always home with him 24/7, but I can tell that he really wants to go outside… he is so bored of living in this same house even if i try giving him new activities, it just isn’t enough mental stimulation. The problem is he isn’t bonded to me so harness training or flight training is pretty much impossible, plus he really hates the harness.
My question is would you guys think it would be a good idea to take him to get professionally clipped? That way I would be able to bring him with me out to the yard (on 0 mph perfect weather days), car rides with me when I go to get fast food, we can even visit a Petco or bird shop, etc. I know his life would be so much more fulfilling this way. I know clipping can be negative physically and mentally but at home he rarely flies anyways he mostly walks and climbs everywhere. He is only willing to fly to my mom who he is bonded to but she won’t flight train him, she doesn’t really care about the bird as much as me sadly. Please give me your opinions and suggestions as to what to do. Thanks !!

Can anyone suggest a trusted link/shop to get a copy of The Battle at Gardens Gate on vinyl online that doesn't cost a fortune for the record or postage. (UK based)

2023.03.26 00:55 coster-monger NEED ADVICE - pet store breeding cats
Apologies in advance for rambling, I’m not the best writer.
My local pet supply store is home to 4 cats (3 males and 1 female). All the cats belong to the owner of the store and his son who pride themselves on being cat lovers and refuse to adopt out any of the cats. I know this because I asked if the female was up for adoption because she’s extremely sweet and loves to be carried around the store and just has a zest for life. He was adamant about keeping the cat because he loves her and she was surrendered to him by a family that couldn’t care for her. Overall, the cats seem happy. They love people, and they seem relaxed and healthy. Ive always thought they would be happier living in a home rather than a stuffy cluttered store with no windows, but at least they are being cared for. I do have concerns about hygiene, like I always see one of their litter boxes is filthy and is right next to their food bowls and attracts flies. There used to be really sad looking birds in cages for sale but I think they’ve improved conditions a bit since last year. Now, my dilemma. I found out from my partner that their female cat is pregnant, meaning she and at least one other male in the store haven’t been fixed. Actually, I’d bet that none of them are fixed. This makes me furious. The thought of a young healthy happy female cat having to live with three intact male cats this whole time especially after hours with no one there to supervise. If I had known I would have said something. Now she’s going to give birth to a litter of kittens that will need to find decent homes in a city with so many homeless cats. This is driving me up the wall! He could have just gotten her spayed.
I wanted to get advice as to whether I should confront him about the situation and ask that he get the cat spayed after she gives birth. This obviously goes for the kittens as well…. He’s kind of old fashioned and proud seeming and I’m just worried that he would freak out and kick me out of the store for questioning him. Another concern I have is that he is able to care for the newborn kittens. The store is a big mess, ie the dirty litter box (I really hope there is more than one for 4+ cats). What would you suggest I do in this situation? I don’t want to “rat him out,”because I do believe he cares about his animals, but I’m quite conflict averse and this seems like a big undertaking… I still really care about these cats and want to advocate for them. thank you for taking the time to read.
