2023.05.29 18:15 MortusMelee I met an anime fan IRL and it ruined anime for me

I just want to share my story since it's unbelievable that it happened and it's pretty frustrating to me.
I was born and raised in Mississippi and loved the show naruto as a kid.(7-8) I used to watch it every time it aired. I happened to hear that it was based of a comic and I wanted to read some. So I convinced my dad to take me to my local books-R-us and buy 1or 2 volumes of the Manga. We get there and we head to the Manga section and find the series I was looking for. We were confused why it was printed backwards.
But then he appeared, (and I swear to God I'm not making it up, i asked my dad years later thinking i was misremembering or made it up and nope, its real) a very short(about 5f), VERY obese, neckbearded, and pimpled dude.
This guy bardges up to us and starts loudly complaining about how we are supposed to read it backwards and starts ranting loudly about how bad "Western" media is compared to anime and Manga, and ranting about various things very loudly, and very obnoxiously. We stood flabbergasted that this dude just barged up to us and started b*thing to a father just trying to shop with his 7 year old kid. This dude kept at it as we were shopping and he had to have been at it for 5 or 10 minutes.
The rest is kind of blurry but I remember I made a vow to myself to never end up like him. Shortly after I stopped watching all anime to not end up becoming like him. I'm now 21 and now whenever I look at anything anime themed I feel Very uncomfortable and I kind of cringe to myself.
I want to like anime but I just can't help feeling uncomfortable watching it now. I really think it's from meeting that obnoxious fan and the impact it had on me when I was 7. I really think this 1 dude has completely ruined the medium for me.

2023.05.29 18:08 RakeMeSenpaiuwu [NEWBIE] Hey guy's i am planning to buy my first electric guitar. Never learned guitar before. Please suggest

My budget isnt a lot so I'm leaning towards second hand one's. I shortlisted a few model's on the second hand site and some of these model's were within my budget:- 1. Ibanez grg121dx gio series 2. Esp ltd h51 3. Ibanez grg170dx 4. Esp ltd ec10 5. ltd viper 6. Yamaha 012 7. Cort cr100 les paul
Btw I'm a complete beginner, but I'm really looking forward to getting good at guitar. I got inspired through an anime(Bocchi the rock xD), kinda a corny reason to start learning but i never appreciated music(specially guitar) before watching that show. I usually like Pop, rock, edm, metal and even jrock. Looking to play anime op/ed's as well. So please suggest me accordingly, and any sources to start learning, amp suggestions etc. are all welcome. Thank You :-)
Edit: Also, Please do tell what thing's to keep in mind before i buy a second hand guitar. I don't have a friend who plays guitar so i practically know nothing about how to check the quality of the guitar

2023.05.29 18:07 Fancyred Here's a Paragon-Centric Hero Concept I Came Up With: Mandy the Pelter!

Here's a Paragon-Centric Hero Concept I Came Up With: Mandy the Pelter!
Fun fact: Reddit fought with me two different times to keep me from posting Mandy. I guess she might just be too powerful. This time, I'm going to try and upload the concept as a text post instead of a media one.

Here's her level 1 design! No color, I know. Unfortunately, I don't really have coloring utensils on handy. That said, her design is inspired by the Agropelter and a Mandrill, hence her name being Mandy the Pelter.
She's on the stronger side on her own, but a lot of her levels can be wasted if she isn't supported by paragons. She's also designed to encourage spending money on her, so while you can just place and forget about her, you really shouldn't.
Complete information about her levels are available here. Do give critique!
As for what some of her other levels would look like, below is an unshaded series of potential designs for each level. The idea is that she would also have a Paragon form of some kind, but I haven't been able to get a good design to paper, unfortunately.

The basic idea is that she would be come more encased in this like, Paragon \"suit\", like a caterpillar weaving their own chrysalis.
To top it all off, I even came up with voice lines for her that you can find here. I imagine that her voice would be low and a mite deep.
Do give me your thoughts on design, balance, etc.! I've put a lot of thought into her.

2023.05.29 18:06 TheRatisme Volume 20

So I’m reading the light novels, getting caught up, and I just had a question for anyone that’s caught up.. Does it get better? I’m honestly feeling extremely annoyed with the events of volume 20 so far. Sorry if anyone doesn’t want to hear this, it does come from a love of the series, it’s just.. The last few volumes actually annoyed me quite a bit. I really enjoyed the series up through volume 16 on my last read, which is as far as it had updated at the time, but.. It took like two or three volumes to get through the arc in Kizuna’s world, and as much as I like those characters.. I’m not nearly as invested in this “mamoru” character or the implications of time travel shenanigans. Reading this is hurting my head, and not because it’s too complicated. Rather, am I going to have to learn a whole new cast of characters that are essentially clones of other characters? ..and am I expected to care about them? I’m just getting really annoyed at the prospect of enjoying so much of a series, knowing it’s coming to an end.. and then having the last several volumes potentially be a complete slog virtually unrelated to the main story. It also feels like a massive pain that right when the other heroes/villagers start getting developed and start being fun characters, they get sidelined for god knows how many volumes in favor of these bozos I care nothing for. It’s like just when I was finally invested in all the stuff going in in kizuna’s world, it’s just “nope, we’re going back now”. Then when I get interested in the plot points and characters back home, it’s literally immediately “nope, we’re in the past now”. I just feel like the last few volumes it’s been doing this thing where it drags on forever in parts I have no interest in, like the stupid twenty person battles that are all one on one between ten different parties and always the same “Naofumi is watching from the side and commenting on every single fight” gag, as if he’s not in a fight himself and as if any of us care HOW filo killed this guy or “the heavenly empress” killed that guy.. At this point I’m just venting, I thought this series was so good, but I’ve really been struggling through the volumes for a good minute now. I genuinely want to like it and keep reading but I’m so unbelievably frustrated at how it drags on and then cuts me off on the actual good stuff. Perfect example; I love the slice of life stuff, with the cast and characters were actually interested in, in the world we know. Why in God’s name would I be interested in it with “R’yne”, “Holn” and “Mamoru”?! Of course I’m not, can we just get to the conclusion of whatever the hell this is and go back to melromarc? But I have the distinct feeling that won’t be happening, and I’m stuck with this for a while. Anyway.. I could rant about this all day. Sorry to anyone that read through all this; My question is just “Does it get any better?” Are there any reasons to keep reading? Because a hundred pages of this “time travel” nonsense already has me feeling incredibly stupid about how excited I was to get caught up.. It’s not even the time travel that annoys me, it’s that they actually expect me to care about the cloned characters or the differences between timelines. ….am I actually expected to learn a whole new, completely uninspired cast, this late in the series..please saintly even right at the end…?

2023.05.29 18:04 AutoModerator Here's How To Watch 'You Hurt My Feelings' Free Online Streaming ON Reddit

A new comedy by A24 is coming our way this summer! You Hurt My Feelings was written, directed, and produced by Nicole Holofcener. The film is also produced by Anthony Bregman, Stefanie Azpiazu, and Julia Louis-Dreyfu.
Download ➤ ► 🔴🧿⭕👉 'You Hurt My Feelings' Free Online Streaming
Romantic comedies are always about finding your true love, but Nicole Holofcener has stood out in her career because her movies often focus on the struggles of maintaining or rediscovering love later in life. That once again looks to be the case in her new movie, You Hurt My Feelings, where she teams up with Julia Louis-Dreyfus.

While the movie is written and directed by Holofcener, it also has another big name in Hollywood right now behind it — studio A24. The producedistributor has long been known for its acclaimed entries that offer something different than the typical superhero/franchise fare of many other Hollywood studios. A24 has been on a particularly hot streak of late, with its 2022 movie Everything Everywhere All at Once winning Best Picture, as well as a slew of other movies earning awards and strong box office numbers. Will You Hurt My Feelings keep that momentum going?

Already intrigued? We know you are, and we also know you're wondering how you can watch and stream You Hurt My Feelings from the comfort of your own home. Luckily, we did some research and have an idea of when this will happen.

Fasten your seatbelt, because here's where you can watch and stream You Hurt My Feelings online.

You Hurt My Feelings release date
After premiering at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival in January, You Hurt My Feelings arrives in theaters for US audiences on May 26, which is the Friday of Memorial Day weekend.

The comedy is going to be an alternative to the usual summer blockbuster fare, including in its opening weekend, going up against The Little Mermaid and the broad comedy About My Father.

You Hurt My Feelings is also just one of many A24 movies set to come out in 2023, joining Beau Is Afraid, Past Lives and Talk to Me.

Where To Watch You Hurt My Feelings:
As of now, the only way to watch You Hurt My Feelings is to head out to a movie theater when it releases on Friday, May 26. You can find local shows on Fandango, IMAX, Regal, AMC Theatres, Cinemark, Cineplex, Landmark Theatres, Alamo Drafthouse and Harkins Theatres.

Watch Now: You Hurt My Feelings (2023) Online Free

Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait for it to become available to rent or purchase on digital platforms like Paramount, Vudu, YouTube and Apple, or become available to stream on Amazon Prime Video.

Is You Hurt My Feelings streaming?
No, You Hurt My Feelings isn’t streaming right now. It is exclusively available in cinemas after its wide theatrical release on May 26, 2023.

Since A24 is set to share a digital release date, we can only speculate as to when it may be available to watch at home.

Looking at Aster’s previous movies, both of which were also backed by A24, Hereditary had a wide theatrical release on June 8, 2018, while it became available to rent or buy on Amazon Prime Video and other platforms on August 21, 2018.

Meanwhile, the director’s cut of Midsommar dropped in cinemas on August 30, 2019, before streaming on September 24, 2019.

Aside from Aster’s projects, A24’s Oscar-winning hits Everything Everywhere All at Once and The Whale had a wide theatrical release on April 8, 2022, and December 21, 2022, respectively.

The Michelle Yeoh-starring movie became available for streaming on June 7, 2022, while the Brendan Fraser-led drama didn’t come out until March 14, 2023.

If you put all of these together, this averages out to just under two months – but it’s likely set to follow Aster’s previous flicks, meaning the wait might not be quite so long. We’ll be sure to keep you posted when updates roll in.

Is You Hurt My Feelings Streaming on HBO Max?
No, You Hurt My Feelings will not be on HBO Max since it is not a Warner Bros. movie. Last year, the company dropped its movies on the streamer the same day they premiered in theaters. However, they have since stopped and like many others, started allowing a 45-day window between the theatrical debut and the streaming release.

Is You Hurt My Feelings on Netflix?
No, You Hurt My Feelings will not be on Netflix. However, it is possible that it will make it to the streaming giant eventually seeing as it’s home to other A24 movies like Uncut Gems. Until then, you’ll just have to head out to theaters or wait until it becomes available on digital.

Is You Hurt My Feelings Available On Hulu?
Viewers are saying that they want to view the new animation movie You Hurt My Feelings on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. It will be exclusive to the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.

Is You Hurt My Feelings on Amazon Prime?
We hate to tell you that ‘You Hurt My Feelings’ is not included in Amazon Prime’s library. But you can still make the most of your subscription by turning to other alternatives that the streaming giant houses, such as ‘Prisoner X‘ and ‘The Prison.’

When Will You Hurt My Feelings Be on DVD and Blu-ray?
As of now, there is no set date last to when You Hurt My Feelings will be available on Blu-ray and DVD, but we'll keep you updated once we know more about when the film will be available on physical media.

You Hurt My Feelings cast
Julia Louis-Dreyfus headlines You Hurt My Feelings as novelist Beth. This is a reunion for Louis-Dreyfus and Holofcener, as the two previously worked together on the 2013 movie Enough Said. Of course, Louis-Dreyfus is best known for her TV roles as Elaine on Seinfeld and Selina Meyer on Veep, but she has also starred in The New Adventures of Old Christine, Downhill, You People and has a recurring role in the MCU as Valentina Allegra de Fontaine.

Playing Beth's husband Don is Tobias Menzies. Many viewers will likely know Menzies from either his role as Prince Philip for two seasons on The Crown or in Outlander, though he has also appeared in big-name shows like Game of Thrones, Rome and The Terror.

Other members of the You Hurt My Feelings cast include Michaela Watkins (Enlightened) as Beth's sister Sarah, Owen Teague (Mrs. Fletcher) as Beth's son Elliot, Arian Moyaed (Succession) as Sarah's husband Mark and Jeannie Berlin (Succession) as Beth's mother Georgia. Also appearing in the movie are David Cross, Amber Tamblyn, Zach Cherry, LaTanya Richardson Jackson and Sarah Steele.

What Is You Hurt My Feelings About?
Nicole Holofcener has distinguished herself in her career by centering many of her works that deal with the challenges of sustaining or rediscovering love in later life. This appears to be the same situation for You Hurt My Feelings which tells the story of a woman and her husband, focusing on their relationship over the years. The couple’s apparent happy life takes a hit when their little white lies are revealed to each other.

2023.05.29 17:58 TallLab1036 An in depth profile of myself.

Hello hello. I hope you enjoy this short introduction of myself.
Some have asked why I've come here to seek this, and really, why are any of us here? We're searching for something that we can't find elsewhere so we've decided to give this a shot.
I've tried other sites without luck and dating is difficult in my area. By that I mean everyone is super country, as in enjoying fishing and listening to country music while complaining about liberals. Or, to phrase it another way - guns, God and Trump. That's a hard pass for me, so this seems like the next step.
A couple of things before I start:
Distance isn't an issue for me. I'm hoping to meet someone and chat to see where things lead, if there's a connection of any sort. If there is, we can move from there. Distance is a relatively small issue if you can find someone who is truly perfect for you, after all.
I should also mention that, for the most part, age isn't an issue. To some extent it will be of course, but I don't mind a bit of an age gap in either direction at all. If it's an issue for you, that's understandable; however, if you think it will be for me, well the only way to really find out is to message me, now isn't it?
I'm open to anyone who sees this and is interested (including those of any experience level) as I don't want to limit myself when I could possibly find chemistry with someone.
Also, while I am in general an emotionally intelligent, nurturing and supportive person, I'm also a massive sadist. To be more specific, I enjoy psychological sadism (although physical sadism is definitely fun too) and that is reflected in my kinks and, to some extent, my personality. While I believe boundaries and limits are to be respected at all times, and I don't enjoy anything if my partner doesn't, I absolutely love teasing, tormenting and torturing my partner in both play and everyday life.
Prepare for a mountain of text! It's a bit long, but I assure you it's worth the read. I decided that since I'm putting myself out there with a post, I want to truly and fully put myself out there and represent myself. I'm hoping that those reading this will recognize the effort that was put into this and get a good feel for who I am as a person. If you feel it's too much, save it for later, skim or even just message me if you would rather get to know me more naturally.
My post is cobbled together from thoughts, beliefs and realizations that I have come upon in my years in the lifestyle (which is why you might see slightly different styles of writing in different parts, this post is taken from my kink profiles and are the sum result of over ten years of experience that I find I still add to every now and then. I try to edit and organize it a bit from time to time, but it's difficult due to the fact that there's so much that I wish to include.)
Long story short, I can be a bit...rambly, sometimes. So apologies in advance for that, although I have recently made great strides in editing my post. So I've got that going for me, which is nice.
While it's certainly a lengthy read, it's not nearly as bad as it seems. I recommend reading the whole thing (obviously since I wrote it), especially if you're interested in getting to know a kinky, geeky and empathetic person.
Now that I've covered that, it's time to get to the part you've been waiting for.

About me:

I decided to put this part first because I believe that, above all else, the people involved should connect on a personal level and "click", if you will. This tells about who I am and my hobbies and such. If someone can't accept this part of me, how could we possibly get along?
I'm a lighthearted, playful and fairly laid back, yet somewhat serious minded, person who's rather upbeat and probably too curious for his own good. I'm also kind, caring, friendly, sometimes cynical and often sarcastic (although in a lighthearted manner, and never at the expense of others.) There's nothing I love to do more than laugh; I love most things involving humor, although I do believe there's a very fine line between hilarity and stupidity.
Now, for some little bits of trivia about me:
  • According to the Myers-Briggs system, I'm an INFP. Online tests can give you an idea of where to start, but they're not that reliable and the results can change depending on your mood that day. To truly discover your type requires self-reflection to learn about your cognitive functions, and while doing so I learned a lot about myself. I don't follow it religiously, but I believe there are some elements of truth to it.
  • I'm definitely a Type B Personality.
  • I'm a hopeless romantic, an old soul who's young at heart, a cynical optimist and a realistic dreamer.
  • I'm definitely that type that believes in better safe than sorry, and one of my mottos is "Hope for the best, prepare for the worst." I also tend to do copious amounts of research before any big decision.
  • I consider myself to be a very grounded, down to earth and genuine person.
  • I'm extremely friendly and believe in treating others with the same respect that you would like to receive and generally try to do what I feel is "right" by others (more on that in a bit.)
  • I like to believe in the best of human nature, although I seem to be let down a fair bit. Even so, I don't want to let that stop me.
  • I have very strong values and ideals, and an even stronger moral compass.
  • I believe people are free to do and believe what they want, so long as they don't harm themselves, harm, cause trouble for or inconvenience others, or attempt to force those beliefs on others.
  • I believe that a life lived for others is the only life worth living.
  • I believe that there's no point in worrying about things that you can't change. If you let yourself get dragged down by it and obsess over it, you'll find yourself crushed under the weight of all the injustices in the world.
  • I've been told (rather often actually) that I have a very nice voice, frequently being told that I should go into radio or be an announcer of some kind. I'm very expressive and my voice reflects that, having lots of highs and lows. Truthfully, I believe it's one of my better features.
  • I much prefer talking to typing in general, especially when first getting to know someone as you get a much better idea of their personality. Also, I feel like I come across kind of...stiff in my writing style when that's very much not me, so voice allows me to showcase my truest self.
  • I tend to be a confidant of sorts; due to my open and genuine nature and what I've been told is a welcoming...aura, I suppose, people tend to find me easy to talk to and trust, coming to me to confide things and seek out advice. This is something that brings me great happiness and pride as having the trust of others is important to me.
  • Promises are very important to me; once I give my word in regards to something I'll keep it, even if I don't particularly want to. As cheesy as it might sound, to me my word is my bond.
  • Admittedly, subtlety is not one of my strong points. I'm a very open, upfront and honest person. I'm terrible at lying (I hate doing it and I just give away that I am) and can't keep a straight face to save my life. If I were an actor, I would probably be Jimmy Fallon.
  • I welcome people to give me constructive criticism and feedback as I'm constantly looking to improve myself. Yes, that even includes those that message me saying my post is far too long.
  • I can't fake a smile to save my life, it has to be genuine for me. One of the many reasons I hate having photos taken of me.
  • I find intelligence, humor and kindness to be the most desirable traits in a partner (although being easy on the eyes doesn't hurt.)
  • My senses are all very sensitive, and can sometimes overwhelm me when I'm introduced to new stimuli.
  • I used to do drugs. I still do, but I used to too. Wait, I'm just kidding, just wanted to throw a little Mitch Hedberg in here. I don't drink, smoke or do drugs. While I have no issue with those who drink, I do tend to avoid smokers and hardcore drug users.
  • Despite what the length of my post may say about me, I absolutely hate writing.
  • I enjoy visiting places but hate the actual traveling (which is one of the reasons why if I could have one power it would be teleportation [actually if I could have one power it would be the ability to manipulate space and time, however for simplicity's sake I'm just going to say teleportation for now {not Star Trek teleportation though, fuck that.}])
  • I hate waiting and I hate making others wait.
  • I love the symbolism of trees and what they represent: strength, vitality, protection.
  • If I had to rank the seven deadly sins in the order that I'm guilty of from most to least, it would go: Gluttony, Pride, Sloth, Lust, Envy, Greed and Wrath.
  • If I were to list the Magic the Gathering colors that I most identify with from most to least, it would go: White, Blue, Green, Red and then Black.
  • Growing up I was all about DBZ, Dinosaurs, Gargoyles, Ghostbusters, Ninja Turtles, Pokémon, Power Rangers, Spider-Man & X-Men.
  • I absolutely love animals and have two cats of my own, Ivy and Jasmine (there are wonderful stories behind both names), that I love to death. I probably talk to them like people a bit too much.
  • I spend far more time living in my head than I should.
  • I firmly believe that breakfast offers the best food. I could eat waffles everyday.
  • I call Gatorade by their flavors as opposed to their colors.
  • I absolutely love when I'm thirsty and soda burns my throat.
  • You won't catch me running unless something is chasing me. Partially because I have asthma, but mostly because running is awful.
Over the past several years I've come to appreciate music a lot more than I used to (before it was simply used as background noise as I can't stand silence) and have discovered that I'm a fan of alt-metal, heavy metal and hard rock more than anything else.
Some bands I enjoy include:
Adelitas Way, Amaranthe, Breaking Benjamin, Disturbed, Evans Blue, Five Finger Death Punch, Gemini Syndrome, Otherwise, Pop Evil, Sevendust, Shinedown, Shaman's Harvest, State of Mine, Theory of a Deadman, Three Days Grace (before Adam Gontier left)
I enjoy other types of music as well, for example another band I like is Bowling for Soup as I love their sense of humor; it's great to see people not taking music so seriously. I'm also a fan of big band music, which I actually have Fallout 3 to thank for. I enjoy classical musical as well and, despite having no real knowledge of it and most of it sounding the same, I find it incredibly relaxing and peaceful.
While I enjoy relaxing and watching television, I have trouble watching hour long shows as I can only focus on it for so long before my attention wavers, around that time I start looking at my phone and just waiting for it to be over. It's also why I don't watch too many movies; I need my entertainment bite sized. I'll watch movies every once in a while, but they generally need to be 100 minutes tops (unless it's something I'm super into.).
I have difficulty getting into things that are realistic; they usually need to be fantastical in nature and capture my imagination. My preferred genres are comedy, horror (mainly supernatural, no slashers) and most things involving special powers or abilities, however I can sometimes get into action or drama as well. I also have a love for the world of animation, possibly because they tend to be more creative and aren't limited by reality; it's part of why I'm so partial to anime.
Some shows that I'm fond of are:
Animation: Adventure Time, American Dad, Archer, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Bob's Burgers, Bojack Horseman, [China, IL], Disenchantment, Futurama, HarmonQuest, Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, King of the Hill, Metalocalypse, Mike Tyson Mysteries, Mr. Pickles, Rick and Morty, Robot Chicken, South Park, Superjail, Ugly Americans, Venture Bros.
Live-action: Arrested Development, Better Call Saul, Breaking Bad, Carnivàle, Dexter, Eureka, Friends, Game of Thrones, The Good Place, House, The Lost Room, Monk, The Muppets (2015 series), The Office, Parks and Rec, Psych, Stargate, Stranger Things, Walking Dead, Warehouse 13, Wilfred
I definitely binge my shows, I like to wait for a season (or preferably an entire series) to be done before I jump into it. I'm also the type that's fine watching something just once. If I ever feel the need to watch it again it will be many, many years later. This extends to games as well, I generally need things with replayability such as MOBA's or Rogue-likes.
Gaming is easily one of my biggest hobbies and has been for many, many years now. I see it as an art form, as a way to tell a story that you can deeply immerse yourself in and get pulled into, something that can captivate you and make you lose all track of time because it's simply so engrossing. It's also a damn good way to have fun and kill time, especially when you're playing with friends. It's a big part of my life and something I have spent quite a bit of time and money on. Some people may be put off by this, but it a part of me that I will not deny or hide; after all, if someone has an issue with that then how compatible could we possibly be?
Some video games that hold a special place in my heart are:
Action/Adventure: Alan Wake, Assassin's Creed, Bastion, Batman: Arkham Asylum, Bayonetta, Brütal Legend, Bully, Darksiders, Dark Souls (first one), Deadly Premonition, Dead Space, Devil May Cry (3 & 5), Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Heavy Rain, Hellblade, Infamous, Last of Us, Legend of Zelda (A Link to the Past, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Wind Waker), Luigi's Mansion, Metal Gear Solid (Twin Snakes, 3, 4 & 5), Ninja Gaiden (2004), Overlord, Phantom Crash, Resident Evil 2 remake, Saint's Row 2, The Saboteur, TMNT: Turtles in Time

Strategy: Civilization (3 & 4), Endless Legend, Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswalkers (2012 & 2013), Portal, Star Wars: Galactic Battlegrounds, Warcraft 3
Not only that, but I've also gotten into tabletop gaming, including both board and pen and paper games (such as Dungeons and Dragons.) I initially got into the latter as an exercise to strengthen my creative muscles but found it was a fun way to goof off with friends. For the former, it's almost gotten to the point that I enjoy them more than most video games as it provides an experience that you don't get anymore; friends gathered around and competing against one another or cooperating against a common foe, something that's disappeared with the advent of the internet.
Some board games that I love are:
BANG! The Dice Game, Dead of Winter, Dice Throne, Epic Spell Wars, King of New York, Lords of Waterdeep, Munchkin, Pandemic, Red Dragon Inn
I enjoy reading as well, although I find it difficult to find a book that can keep my focus and really draw me in like I crave. I'm constantly on the prowl for new material, and my favorite genres would probably be apocalyptic/post-apocalyptic, dystopian, horror and dark fantasy/grimdark, although I'm certainly in the market for something that has a good element of humor to it as well. If you have any recommendations, I'd absolutely love to hear them!
Bring up video/board/tabletop games, super powers, comics, cartoons, anime, manga, sci-fi, fantasy or technology and I'll happily chat your ear off. I'm quite social and love to talk, however I'm also an introvert so there are plenty of times where the pressure of constant social interactions with others gets to me and I need to take some time to myself to mentally recharge.
As I mentioned, I absolutely adore animals. Seriously, if you want to make me hate a bad guy, have him hurt an animal. Ironically, I'm practically a carnivore. I'm convinced that I would starve if I had to hunt for my own food just because I couldn't bring myself to hurt them.
Speaking of food, I'm a bit of a foodie (I dislike that word, but it's accurate.) I'm all about sauces, seasonings and spices, not to mention a love for anything deep fried. I love experiencing different tastes and textures while trying new long as they're not vegetables. No veggies, except corn and potatoes; those two get a pass as they're amazing. I also enjoy onions and peppers in small quantities in dishes.
I've got a nice guy next door look in that I have no tattoos or piercings, have glasses, stay clean shaven and have a bit of a baby face (as in I look rather young, I often get mistaken for being in my mid 20's). I wouldn't say that with my look I would be called handsome, sexy or hot (however I am often called cute (I've also been called handsome a fair amount, it still feels weird though.) I'm also rather pale due to the fact that I stay indoors most of the time (if you can't tell from that, I'm white.) Because of my appearance, and my friendly and laid back nature, people tend to view me as rather innocent. I suppose that isn't entirely incorrect though, I'll admit that I can be a bit naive at times in regards to people and the world.
As for politics and religion, I tend to try to stay away from both.
While I believe I'm somewhat in the middle for the former, as I have views from both sides, if I had to choose I'd say I definitely lean way more towards the left. I believe in the greater good, the needs of the many over the needs of the few, in advancing science and finding alternative fuels and materials that don't pollute or destroy our environment in the process, in trying to create a brighter future, etc, etc. I'm definitely not on the far left however, and hate social justice and cancel culture. I'm empathetic and all, but people need to stop getting offended by every tiny thIng and creating problems that don't exist. That's definitely not exclusive to the left, the right is very guilty of it as well.
For the latter, I generally just consider myself not religious as I don't think or care about it too much. If I had to classify it though I'd say I'm agnostic. This means that, while I don't believe in any god or gods, I acknowledge that they might exist. While I'm 99.3̅3̅3̅% certain that there is no grand creator or afterlife, there's no real way we can know for certain. We're a very young and ignorant species, there's much about life and the universe that we are unaware of or don't understand yet.
I just try to focus on being a good person and doing right by others, not for some earthly or heavenly reward, or for a smug sense of self satisfaction, but because it's simply what I want to do. It's who I am and what makes me feel good about myself.
I try my best to live by The Golden Rule (also known as treat others you the way you wish to be treated or do unto others as you would have them do unto you), being guided by own moral compass that directs me in how I interact with others. I always do my very best to make others feel wanted, cared for, appreciated and understood, to give them validation; I never want anyone to feel left out or unwanted, for any reason at all. Perhaps it's from my own difficult childhood, since I felt that way when I was young and don't want others to go through the same things that I did. Whatever the reason, whenever I say or do anything I tend to, without even realizing it, think about how it will affect the other person and the different ways that it could be taken. I strive to treat others with the courtesy and respect that I believe that they deserve.
As I mentioned, I have a strong moral compass. The only problem is, this is true North for my compass; I feel that's the correct way to treat and interact with others, and I believe that's what everyone should do. So when other people don't act in the way that I believe they should, even though I know everyone is different and everyone has different thoughts, feelings and experiences that led them to those (we are the product of our environments after all), it can bother me. I've come to realize that this is due to holding myself to extremely high standards, and often holding other people to the same standards to which I hold myself.
Unfortunately, that can lead to conflicts with others, sometimes over things that they might feel to be insignificant. It doesn't happen very often though as I can recognize whether something is actually a big deal or not and put it to the back of my mind; I wouldn't be a very good friend or partner if I nitpicked over every little thing, now would I? Despite being very much driven by my moral compass, I'm also calm, collected, understanding and logical by nature.
I've realized that I used to put a lot of pressure on myself when interacting with others, trying to be funny and entertaining, overall trying to make sure that they were having a good time and enjoying themselves. If, for whatever reason, I felt that they were bored I ended up trying even harder to keep them engaged and joyful. It was somewhat of a bad habit of mine; I suppose I just felt like I had a personal stake in everyone that I interacted with, a responsibility almost, and didn't want to leave them wanting. I still do this to some extent, but not as much as I used to; as I've grown and matured, and my anxiety has lessened, I've learned to pull back a bit and that I don't need to carry everyone's burden on my shoulders. I still wish to keep people engaged and happy, and still take on more responsibility than I probably should, however I imagine that I'll always be that way; it's just in my nature.
I'm an emotionally intelligent and extremely empathetic person who's well aware of his inner workings due to my introspective nature. I'm easily able to see things from multiple perspectives, which I believe is because of how I process empathy. I don't necessarily feel the exact pain of others, but I mirror it; it's second nature for me to put myself in their position which allows me to understand the plethora of ways they can think and feel. This is something that is a core part of who I am and that I take great pride in.
I feel deeply, which can lead to me taking things to heart and sometimes reading too much into things or overanalyzing them. Thankfully, due to my great experience in emotional control and regulation (which I'm about to go into), I'm generally able to take a step back from my emotions and understand the intent and meaning behind words and actions so there's less of a chance of misunderstanding.
Because I feel so deeply, that caused problems for me when I was younger. My emotions were a swirling vortex, out of control and ready to burst out at any second. Puberty certainly didn't make this any easier either.
It's been said that our personal identity is 80% environmental and 20% genetic. While I might be genetically predispositioned to feeling so deeply, a lot of it likely comes from traumas experienced in childhood and my inability to process them properly. They left scars that I'm still dealing with today, and as a result of said scars, growing up I was diagnosed with PTSD, anxiety, depression and OCD, on top of the ADHD that I already had. However, I'm thankfully in a very good place thanks to a combination of past therapy, current medication and constant reflection.
I've done a lot of work to be able to get a handle on my emotions. Because I got used to having them under such control, I've been told that at times I can come across as kind of indifferent or hard to read. That's one of the reasons that I'm such an upfront, open, honest and expressive person; I want people to be able to understand me and I generally tell exactly what I'm thinking or how something makes me feel so that others can do that.
Honestly, one of my biggest fears is that no one will ever be able to understand me like I understand myself. It's right up there with a fear of the unknown (one is the reasons I don't do deep water, I don't want to fuck with any Cthulhu monsters that are down there) and losing my memories, as in the end we're just a sum of our memories and I don't want to lose who I am.
I never claimed to be perfect; I have my flaws as well, and try to work on them every day to improve myself as a person. Since I've already put so much of myself into my profile, I thought that it was only right to put the negative parts in as well.
While some of these things could certainly be considered negative traits, I believe that they help make me the Dom that I am. Because I AM so compassionate, because I AM so empathetic, because I HAVE been through so much and still keep going, I feel that I can give a sub or a slave what she truly needs to thrive in her environment. Feel free to read more about that below.

My Beliefs:

If I had to break down why this all appeals to me to one reason, to put it simply, I'd have to say that I'm the kind of person who wants to be needed. I find that, overall, I feel more driven and fulfilled if I know that I have someone that depends on me. If I have someone whose best interests I must keep in mind, who I need to protect and care for, I feel a greater sense of purpose than the humdrum rumblings of everyday life.
When you combine that with my nurturing and empathetic nature this type of relationship is the natural choice for me (more on that next). I believe that's also why I find myself naturally drawn to the weak, the helpless and the damaged. I have an overwhelming desire to heal them, to help and protect them while nurturing them and watching them grow into who I know they can be, which goes with what I was saying before.
A sub knows that her Dom loves her unconditionally and only wants what is best for her. While I do certainly enjoy doing this, I primarily do this to help my sub above all else. I'm a nurturing soul who wishes nothing more than to protect his partner. To take care of her and help her when she needs it. To be her support and her life line. To give her the guidance, structure and discipline she needs to feel fulfilled in life. To set rules and guidelines so that she can move freely within those set limits and be happy. To help her decide what is best for her when she herself doesn't know. To provide the security and comfort of knowing that she is being taken care of and that she has someone she can talk to about anything without any sort of judgment or prejudice. I want her to thrive and become the person that she was always meant to be. I enjoy pushing my sub to explore her boundaries and limits, within reason of course. I simply wish to see her flourish and blossom, to help her become what I know she can be and reach higher plateaus.
I realize the previous paragraphs could sound condescending in some ways, however that couldn't be further from the truth. I see my partner as an equal, someone who simply has different needs that I can fulfill so that they can live a fulfilling life themselves, and in turn by fulfilling those needs of theirs, I feel fulfilled as well. We ultimately form a symbiotic relationship of sorts.
Make no mistake, I have no desire to micromanage every tiny detail of my sub's life, nor form a codependent relationship where she's entirely reliant upon me for her mental and emotional needs. The level and extent of the D/s relationship is decided after long discussion and input from both parties.
Some believe that being a Dom is just telling people what to do and getting what you want while getting off, but it's so much more than that. It's not as easy or simple as it appears, you must always keep what is best for your sub in mind, even if it conflicts with your own immediate or future interests. You must constantly be aware of her needs and desires while providing checks and balances to help her live a life worth living. Anyone can simply give a sub what she wants, it takes a true Dom to say no because you feel that is what is best for her.
At least that's how it should be. There are so many "Doms" out there that don't care about their subs at all, only themselves. They don't care if they're suffering physically or emotionally, they simply use them as toys they can play with and then toss aside when they're bored; they abuse them and hurt them simply because they get a kick out of it. A real Dom/sub relationship is a very special and strong bond, much more so than a vanilla relationship in my opinion. So many people seem to have issues understanding that unfortunately, there's a certain stigma associated with this and preconceptions are formed before they even learn anything about it.
Truthfully, I believe the sub holds the power in the relationship in many ways. She is the one that is choosing to submit after all, to give up her power and control to the Dom. Despite that, she is the one that has control over the power of safe words, that can stop an activity with a single utterance. Her subservience is completely voluntary, something that many people don't seem to think about. It's not simply about someone bossing someone around because they can, it's about someone choosing a partner that they feel is worthy to give their all to.

What I'm looking for:

I'm not here looking for a booty call or one night stand, but to find a potential partner in crime, possibly for life if a connection is made. More than anything, I simply wish to find someone who looks at me the way this girl looks at her prom date.
While the following is my ideal, as I said at the beginning, I'm open to talking to anyone that reads this. However, I'm not particularly interested in "littles" or "brats".
Ideally my partner would be what is typically called an adult babygirl, and I'd like to elaborate on that term since some might not be familiar with it. Essentially it's someone who enjoys the nurturing, loving and structured aspect of a Daddy Dom or DD/lg relationship but isn't a little themselves; meaning that they don't have a mental age that they regress to, among other things. (I don't identify as a Daddy myself, however due to my protective and supportive/nurturing nature you could say I'm Daddy leaning.)
Some people have their entire lives revolve around the lifestyle, going to munches, conventions, parties and attempting to reach out to their community and find a place to belong. That might work for them, but it's of no interest to me. While I'm certainly not opposed to chatting and making friends and connections, I have no desire to be a part of a community. I'm simply seeking one whose ideas and beliefs line up with my own for a symbiotic relationship as I mentioned before
If I had to describe such a relationship, it would definitely be on the lighter side of the spectrum in regards to what daily life would be like. I'm seeking a 24/7 TPE, however I also enjoy being casual with my sub. Perhaps in some ways it's more similar to a vanilla relationship with strong Dom/sub undertones than a typical BDSM relationship.
In my perfect situation, we would still be able to joke around, have fun and be very close and romantic; however there is also the constant understanding that I am in charge, and what I say goes. No matter how much fun we may be having or what we might be doing, she should always know her place, even if it's only in the back of her mind. There are rules in place for her benefit, and if she breaks those rules she will be punished.
By what I say goes, I mean I have the final say in subjects because, as a submissive, she has given the reins of power over to me. She trusts me to make her decisions for her and to do what is best for her, to take care of and protect her. I'm never the type to say "this is how it's going to be, I don't care what you want, end of discussion" as discourse is the only way two people can truly understand one another. I always value my submissive's input and always want her to give her opinion and speak her mind if something is bothering her.
My ideal sub would be one that is loyal and devoted above all else, but also one who is looking for a Dom she can actually have a connection with. One that, not necessarily needs, but craves guidance, support, structure and discipline in their life; whose life does not feel complete without this, like there is a void deep inside her that cannot be filled unless she has a Dom to guide and take care of her, that she can in turn make happy and serve to the best of her ability.
Beyond anything else though, I want to like them as a person before I love them as a sub. My perfect partner would be someone who is intelligent, kind-hearted, earnest, funny and a has a fair touch of dorkiness in her. I want her to be someone that actually has personality, that I can laugh with and talk to for hours upon hours on end and still hate the thought of leaving. Someone that will either indulge my love of games and geekery or join me because she's just as much of a fan of those things as I am. Someone who loves how I tease and torment her, keeping her on the edge and revelling in the pleasure I get from watching her squirm.
One thing to note is that just because I am very friendly (sometimes people are surprised when I begin acting more Dominant, others aren't as they say they can "sense it in the way I present myself", even while being friendly and joking around) doesn't mean that I'm not strict when I have to be. I have no problem at all with enforcing rules and giving out punishments, although it's certainly not my favorite aspect of the relationship. I would prefer to reward, encourage and nurture my sub, however there are times when discipline is necessary; if one feels the need to act up, one must be ready accept the consequences after all.
If I had to describe my style of dominance, or what makes me dominant, I suppose that would be a little tricky. I don't feel the need to control everything, nor do I attempt to, and I have no problem with kicking back and letting others take the reigns in everyday situations if I feel they're more qualified or I just plain don't feel like it. Nor am I the type that "oozes" dominance, I don't care for confrontation and am a very easy going, go with the flow person. What I believe it boils down to is I simply feel comfortable with power and, quite frankly, enjoy it. I bear the burden of leadership well, it comes naturally to me and I thrive when I have the weight of another's life on my shoulders; I have little trouble making hard decisions when I need to. It also helps that my sexual inclinations line up with this nicely. If it doesn't last quite some time and doesn't end with both parties panting and soaked in sweat, I'm not particularly interested in it.
On that note, I have quite the kinky side despite my friendly and charming exterior. I suppose I should list it here because, while certainly not the primary focus of my interest in this, sexual compatibility does factor in to some extent.
My kinks are:
Anal, begging, biting, blowjobs, body worship, bondage, choking, cock worship, consensual non-consent, creampies, crying (the good kind), cumplay, deepthroating, degradation, desperation, dirty talking, face fucking, facials, free use, hair pulling, hole stretching (basically pushing my partner to her limits), humiliation, hypnosis, name calling, objectification, orgasm control (which includes edging, forced orgasms, orgasm denial and ruined orgasms), public play (in a discreet manner), slapping, spanking, spitting and teasing.
One thing I feel I should mention is that the acts of degradation and humilation are limited to play time and only sexual in nature, never attacking my partner in any way.
I also believe very strongly in aftercare and safe words as the mental and emotional well being of my partner is very important.
I realize there's no one way to live this lifestyle, but I feel like a lot of what I said should be obvious and general knowledge in regards to this; however from my experience it doesn't seem to be that way too often (not referring to the that are inexperienced in this, more those that do this for the wrong reason), which is why I wanted to share my views in such detail.
I feel like I've rambled on enough already and am dangerously close to having a TL;DR (yeah, I hit that ages ago), so I'll just say that if you're interested in learning more about me and getting to know me, you can give me a message and we'll see where things go. I like to get to know people naturally, just talk with them and see where things lead, whether that be a short chat, a simple friendship or something more. It seems silly to have expectations when you don't even know the person or how you'll get along.
Even if you're nervous or anxious, you think you might not be good enough, doubt my intentions or anything along those lines, still give me a message. After all, what do you have to lose?
Thanks for taking the time to read my little novella, I hope to hear from you soon. So long, and thanks for reading!

2023.05.29 17:53 spottygrunge Why is Stacey such a baby?

I’m rewatching the series and I can safely say Stacey is the most irritating character on this show. It annoys me so much how Stacey can’t seem to spend more than a few days away from her family and Barry Island before completely acting like a brat and demanding that they go back every weekend to see them. It’s like a 7 year old crying at a sleepover wanting to go back home to mum. Gavin is pretty annoying too but Stacey is just far worse than anybody. Also that scene where she’s at Pam and Mick’s with her mum, Bryn and Nessa (they dropped off all her stuff in the moving van) and she has a full on tantrum about her mum letting Nessa have her old room, despite the fact that Nessa is about to have a baby. Pam and Mick where more than patient with having to deal with her childish attitude.

2023.05.29 17:50 Hot_Requirement1899 Professor changed an assignment entirely because other students are using AI.

To keep things short, my professor only has 3 homework assignments throughout the semester and we are on our last one. These assignments consist of a series of questions (usually for me they are about 4-5 pages long single spaced). I decided to get it done early for once so I can focus on other finals but I have yet to submit it just in case if I wanted to go back and write some more. After about a week or two of the original assignment, my professor posts an announcement talking about AI and also changes all of the questions that I already completed. So far there is no answer given if I will be given any credit for the work I’ve done or full credit for completing previous work. What do you guys should happen?

2023.05.29 17:38 chickenpotpioneer Succession of genes and a case for Logan crossing out, not underlining

Sorry for the length.
The mark of a good finale is revealing a new piece of information that shines new light on the same story and reveals character motivations that were hidden beneath the surface the whole time. I think we got that with the finale last night. I think so much emphasis was placed on Logan's corporate Succession plan through this series that we didn't realize how important Logan's genetic "succession" weighed on his mind and colored the narrative between the lines.
First off, all the kids achieve complete self awareness here at the end. Kendall keeps firing off lines that cut so close to the truth it feels like the audience POV:
"Maybe that is why you're better adjusted and I'm just a fake business pyscho"
"I'm a specific cog that only fits in this one machine"
"If you don't let me do this I might be dead"
Roman reaches full self awareness too -- not only is he bullshit and was never a proper candidate, but Kendall probably wasn't either. And honestly, Logan was right about the three of them not being serious people. Logan may not have gave off "deep longing to be a grandpa" vibes, but I think Roman saw that it WAS a big deal and that is why he calls it out right at this crucial moment. The subtext is a lot to unpack. Logan, a "good old boy", has a bi-racial adopted granddaughter and a grandson born through invitro that doesn't share his genes. He puts his hands on Iverson. He has that odd "fake poison" dinner gag with him. Deep down, he closed the door on the thought of Kendall carrying on his genetic legacy. Another reason why Tom has so much good will and leverage in his eyes -- he is his key to protecting the "Roy" legacy.
I think there is a case to be made that Logan crossed out Ken's name when he fully threw his lot behind Tom. It even tracks with him adding "Greg?" at the same time as the cross-off, if you view his decisions through that lens, Greg being the only other player with blood relation to Logan. Also recall the background plot of Logan trying to eat foods that boosted his sperm count so he could make a baby with Kerri. This WAS important to Logan, it was just never made that explicit.
Shiv knew that by keeping the baby, she would effectively be delivering her father the "real" grandbaby he expected, and this is why her story is just as much a tragedy as Kendall's. She is confused about being a mother, yet at least she knows she has this new bargaining chip that will give her leverage with her father, the fantasy she mentions to Tom of "grandpa bouncing his grandchild on his knee", but he dies right before making that a reality.
It explains Logan's divorce lawyer advice to Tom as well -- Logan did not want them to split. He wanted them to stay together, and have his grandchild, and keep Tom around as his pain sponge. The irony is that Matsson has carved out his own "Loganesqe" corner of this world and will now keep the abusive cycle between Shiv and Tom alive in this next chapter without Logan around. It adds context to Kendall's feelings of intensely disappointing his father, and his own conflicted feelings about not genuinely feeling a love and connection for his kids, but trying to pretend he does. It all goes back to Logan's existential dread at not securing a proper Succession of his lineage. In the end, I think he gives up on it in a way at the beginning of S4 -- and that is when he waxes poetic to Colin about life and death, and pivots to his "rebuild ATN like pirates" mindset. If his idiot kids can't protect his legacy, he'll go down with ship himself.
This is the full context we needed to understand this warped sibling dynamic living in the shadow of their father. Logan would make jokes about Kendall's kids "not being serious grandchildren" when he wasn't around. Shiv knows this well and even tries to stop Roman from going there because it hits a nerve. In the end, Shiv can't give her brother the win, whether to spite him or protect her own future, we can't say for sure. But what is apparent is that she falls in line to accept her place in the world her father would have preferred for her - carrying his grandchild and empowering Tom to keep the good family name alive. Kendall knows this, Roman knows this, they all know this. The air has been cleared.
Roman is free, Shiv is anything but free (by her own choosing), and Kendall is stuck being followed around by his father's best friend, paying him to hover over his shoulder as a testament that his Logan was in fact capable of genuine connections, just not with him. A constant reminder of his past sins and his father's disappointment - a hired grim reaper of grief and shame.

2023.05.29 17:30 MR_PHOENIX_JI [7 minute read] Observations of a first timer - Feel free to add

Learnings from a first timer :
I quit my job in Oct, travelled overseas for a while and started prep from Nov. As of 28 May morning, i had put in 1463 hours into my attempt (yeah i measured every single minute) . I am expecting 100+ in paper 1 and on brink (fingers crossed) in paper 2 and might fail in just average to worst case.
Here are my learnings:

  1. PERFORM PERFORM PERFORM : You have to perform in those exam hours. Knowledge, books etc ARE helpful but only till a point. IT ALL BOILS DOWN TO YOUR PREPARATION AND HOW YOU WRITE THE EXAM. Writing the exam is a CRITICAL skill that no book or coaching will teach, CAN TEACH AND ARE PERHAPS - INCAPABLE TO TEACH. EVERYONE TALKS ABOUT CONTENT AND OUTCOME - NO ONE TALKS ABOUT THE PROCESS YOU SHOULD PURSUE TO DIGEST THE CONTENT AND ARRIVE AT THE DESIRED OUTCOME. Everyone can solve a paper afterwards - but doing so in those 4 hours IN THE EXAM HALL counts. IN THE HALL, have to perform like a machine with RAW UNADULTERATED RUTHLESS FOCUS. YOU SHOULD NOT MAKE MISTAKES - AND NOT PANIC WHEN YOU FIND YOU MADE SOME. If you panic, you should know how to calm yourself down. Easy said than done but this should form a major portion of the preparation. In the end, its not about from where the paper comes, but how you do in whichever paper comes.
  2. PLANNING : You have to have a plan - for difficult paper, easy paper and what will you do in each case and what if all plans fail and at the same time not to over plan. You have to take crucial decisions in exam hall in case the paper is a googly. You have to remind of what has to be done in every case and what has to abstained from in ANY circumstance. You have to train to control your emotions and apprehensions. I remember story about a person from IITB(my sister went there, i didn’t) who used to set alarms in night and write an answer and then sleep. He would evaluate it in morning. He wanted to get an idea of how he would perform. That is the level of dedication you are up against. so better plan.
  3. MIND OVER MATTER : This is another overlooked factor and most important in my opinion. It is not about strategy x or strategy Y. Its about keeping your cool and self mastery. ***You should see that you have an effective response to probable contingencies.***I saw a video of a guy emotional after screwing up interview. I feel you bro, but you just let your emotions get the better of you. So many hours wasted over a moment of laxity.As for me, I felt the pressure in CSAT after i could solve only 15 in first hour, ended up doing some stupid mistakes due to that and on the brink currently.IMO, You have to be so strong as not to crumble in the cumulative weight of your untamed expectations.YES EVERYONE IS EXPECTING, EVERYONE IS HOPEFUL, but you have to detach yourself from everything and perform when the bell rings. Remember, only your actions can free you from these petty distractions. Watching LBSNAA and royal entry videos will only condition you and attach you to what should be done REALLY SURGICALLY, DISPASSIONATELY AND METHODICALLY. Truly great ones add a factor of delight with their process while performing. Without optimum performance, you can never beat the best. AND REMEMBER, ONLY THE BEST MAKE THE CUT. MY SENIOR IN SERVICES TOLD ME - ONE MISTAKE AND YOU LOSE A RANK, TWO MISTAKES YOU WILL MISS THE CUT OFF. DON’T LET THIS EXAM BECOME THE BOULDER OF SISYPHUS.
  4. CONSTRAINED PREPARATION: I feel preparation should always be constrained. In prelims, you must complete the exam in 2 hours.While preparing in mocks, i set random alarms in between to simulate the times invigilator would interrupt me. I took printout of OMR. I sat near window in afternoon to simulate the case where my seat would be near a sunny window in afternoon. I woke up after sleeping three hours to check how i perform in mocks if i am not able to sleep on night before prelims. I really poured my heart out and still i am not sure. That’s how this exam is. Asymptotic scale and a gazillion probabilities - but only 2 outcomes.In Mains, you must write answers fast. If you don’t complete the paper in time, you are done. In Interview, you must calm yourself in the time and sing when your turn comes - without letting your emotions get better of you. I say we should also learn to control ourselves within a timeframe.So, the question is - WHEN THE EXAM PERFORMANCE CONDITIONS ARE CONSTRAINED, WHY SHOULDN’T THE PREPARATION BE?Quality folks will say do everything with quality, relax and read a book till you touch its soul - i say do the job in the stipulated time with desired quality. There is no end to quality. You just must reach the quality UPSC desires.Time is the REAL thing. THERE IS ALWAYS THIS CONSTRAINT OF TIME that will haunt us through our journey. At any given time, you HAVE TO DELIVER IN A STIPULATED TIME. You can study all books in the world you want, do everything XYZ sir recommends but if IT DOESN’T SERVE YOU IN EXAM HALL, I SAY ITS PRETTY DAMN USELESS. PREPARATION SHOULD ALSO BE VERY FUNDAMENTAL.
  5. FUNDAMENTALS OVER EVERYTHING: People will always whine how was this paper. People will always do after every paper. Yesterday was difficult, but kinda possible. S wave, P wave - DRC question - Somalia one - Coup one from 2022 PYQ and vision places in news, ballistic missile cruise missile - It had its share of easy ones also.UPSC can never deviate from syllabus. Foundations must be covered in any case. It can never go away from syllabus.There is a truth that is true for a certain time(age). When that truth becomes widely known such that it starts destroying the level playing field UPSC envisages, UPSC changes the game and ushers in a new age.Yesterday’s prelims heralded a new age. Prepare yourself for a series of coaching institutes start the claim game and DISCOVER NEW PATTERN.
  6. MARKET ECONOMY: UPSC has a flourishing market around it. Our veterans joined the coaching institutes and good for them. Nowadays, THERE IS LITTLE TRUTH AND TOO MANY LIES PEDDLED. Coaching Wallas also know they will get a new flock of sheep every year, regardless of how many candidates are failing. It's a set business. Only problem is, it is built on the dead aspirations of aspirants who gave it all but didn’t make it. FEW PEOPLE SUCCEED FOLLOWING THEIR ADVICE, but most fail.Some might say, 99% will still fail. But problem is, if you moved from the 1% to 99% due to wrong advice of someone you trusted, is it not their fault? Yes, you are responsible but is it all your fault. The best way to absolve is reflect on your own and find your own truth.STOP BEING THE PLAN B OF PEOPLE. YOU ARE NO MORE THAN A VIEW FOR MOST OF THEM. THEIR STRATEGIES ARE POOR GIMMICKS, THEIR ASSURANCES A JOKE - DROPPED AT THE FIRST SIGN OF TROUBLE. STAY CLEAR AND USE THEM - DON’T LET THEM USE YOU.
I have said about “What” above - “HOW” everyone does it and “HOW” diligently we do it determines our fate.I think many successful candidates who have crossed IT know it better than me. Hell, i don’t even have a moral responsibility guiding folks when i am still at the gallows - but i thought i should speak what i feel.Let me know if i am wrong. Feel free to add your view guys.
PS : Also comment for flow and coherence guys. Its essay length already.
Yours truly,Fellow aspirant.

2023.05.29 17:16 dewa1195 Finished MoI first time read, I'm sensing a pattern here

So, this was another heart-rending book by Erikson.
The prologue scenes set nearly 300k years ago and 150k years were very compelling. Starting with a heartbreaking scene right from the beginning, I see you, Erikson. I see you. The horror of the Jaghut-T'lan Imass war was shown in its most vicious form where Pran Chole and Cannig Tol are hunting a Jaghut mother of two... the resignation from her, the tone was set there. And the theme I'm finding in this series is Compassion is a hard thing. Kilava's actions borne from compassion, a kindness to the Jaghut woman actually hurt the world. Makes me wonder... Compassion leads to happiness, compassion leads to despair. The child suffering for over 300k years... that's... I don't have words.
Which brings me neatly to the second topic:timeline. We are shown in the prologue that T'lan Imass existed around 300k years ago before Burn's Sleep. And Kallor was cursed some 150k years ago. And sometime in the later chapters Kallor mentioned how he was alive and fighting when T'lan Imass were nothing but babies in the world... it leads me to question my sanity a little. Am I misunderstanding this? Is Kallor not human/mortal? I'm going slightly insane. Please, please let me know the answers to this. Or at least let me know when/which book I will get answers to this if you can't directly tell me. This will be greatly appreciated.
That's the timeline rant done.
I enjoyed all the different storylines here.
Mhybe and Silverfox: I was rooting for them to meet one last time at the end there. Alas, she Silverfox left. It was expected but sad. Four souls in one body, Silverfox. A flesh-and-blood bonecaster. I have a lot of thoughts on Silverfox and I can't hope to be coherent about any of it. I'm just floored.
Whiskeyjack:I am still reeling from Whiskeyjack's death. It reminded me of Yang Wen Li's death. All they wanted to was to move away from war, settle down. I was happy for Whiskeyjack, for Korlat, for finding that with each other even if it was just for a short while. When Itkovian had that feeling about not meeting each other again, I was preparing for Itkovian's death. I was also preparing for Dujek's. But NOT WHISKEYJACK'S!!! Ugh. I'm gonna make this a post to celebrate Whiskeyjack instead. I enjoyed Rake's and Whiskeyback's friendship. He had an effect on everybody. It was immeasurable. The fact that Rake himself did the protective spells around Whiskeyjack on Moonspawn... it was a hard hard hit. The fact that he could have had his leg healed up completely makes his death all the more tragic but also makes me think of why. Why he wouldn't get it fixed. Makes me wonder if Tayschrenn even tried to save them from Kallor. Him and the two Marines. I just... have a feeling Laseen wanted him dead. Crap, I should stay away from conspiracy theories. sigh.
Ganoes Paran and Bridgeburners: I liked Paran's arc. Going from the 'The bridgeburners are likely to kill me' to the 'that knife in your back was long turned away, Captain' was amazing. I have a lot of thoughts of Paran's role as the Master of the Deck and it's such a brilliant, brilliant thing. Dujek and Whiskeyjack talking about how he was chosen as someone close to Tattersail... I refuse to believe that. Paran has been in the presence of a lot of ascendants. He's been used by Gods before and I think that played a much bigger role in this than the closeness to Tattersail but I'll be happy to be corrected. The bridgeburners themselves were a delightful lot. From the very beginning I loved each and every single one of them. I grieve for all who were lost. I'm glad the rest settled down in Darujhistan. A tavern was exactly what I pictured for them.
Quick Ben: He's one of my favorite characters. To find out about the warrens, to put himself in a God's path, to try and find a cure... his wit and wisdom and kindness, for it was kindness I thunk that leads him were all a delight to read. He's a high Mage now and that worries me a little. He's smart enough to unravel plots, I'm very sure but I still worry.
The entire Capustan waBarghast/Grey Swords/priests: This was one of the hardest things to read in the entire book. The infamous chapter 16 had me tearing up. Just thinking about the betrayal, about how Brukhalian stood and fought and died and how Karnadas died the very same day, it was a double blow. I was listening to the audiobook and it was so hard to comprehend... to understand why... I mean I knew why. It sucked. It sucked. To have Hood himself come to take Brukhalian, I still wonder whether it was an honor.
Itkovian: the burden he took upon himself... there's nothing else I can say. This is the kind of thing, where doing a duty he imposed on himself will be warped to the others outside after his death. There will be many who will look upon him a Saint. And I just want to say that the man was a good man who was dealt a rough hand. What am I saying, they've all been dealt a rough hand. I blame the Crippled God for all of it.
Anomander Rake and Caladan Brood: I think this book shows us the terrible burdens he's taken on himself. The burden of Dragnipur, keeping his people sane and alive and trying to survive... he's a tragic figure...Anomander Rake knew everything about everything. Like he knew about Paran walking across/into? draginpur. Caladan Brood, with a similar burden is another tragic figure. The way his hands shook when he forced himself to make a decision to end it all... All these super old people... smh
I think I'll never stop if I don't limit myself. So, I'm just gush about two more characters. I lied. Many more. Sorry.
Kruppe: Just who the fuck is he? I want his backstory. Someone tell me his backstory(I jest) but please. I love every page Kruppe is in. He's one of the most compassionate people in the series. Standing up to Brood’s temper and not having a scratch after that, I smiled at that. I think I'll appreciate him so much more on the rereads. I can't wait to finish this series just to pick it back up again.
Kallor: I don't know what to think. I'm angry. I'm also concerned. The curses obviously took a toll on him and the effects of that are not something I think I can comprehend. I want to see more of his story. I want to know why he destroyed his own kingdom, why the people were so desperate for removing him from power that they actually brought down a foreign God. I have a lot of questions. Sadly no answers await, not for the next two books at least.
Lady Envy, Tool, Toc and Segulah: I adored them. I loved each and every one of them so much. There's so much history between Envy and Rake. And Envy's conversation with K'rul was one of the most enlightening parts of the book. It made sit up in my chair and reorient everything I knew. (Same for the conversations between Draconus and Paran). Toc's friendship with Tool, gaining the respect of the Segulah, his suffering, his resurrection as Anastor... I should have realised something when Anastor lost his eye. Great foreshadowing. The Seguleh were awesome. The way Erikson showcased the strength of human, to the strength of T'lan Imass and finally the strength of Seguleh... it was a treat. Showing these power levels off like that.
I liked the resolutions to most of the conflicts in this book. They were masterful. This was one of the best books I've read. And they keep getting better and better.
This got awfully long shifty eyes. I don't think I'll ever stop if I don't cut it off now. (Please let me know if I should not make such long posts)
I'm glad I picked this series up again. It's worth it.

2023.05.29 17:14 NorthPermission1152 I understand now

I picked up the original Doom and Quake for my series s a couple days ago, and after playing them for a while I came to love Doom and completely despise Quake to the point of uninstalling before completing the fourth episode out of frustration because of the "Spawn" monsters. Yes they actually do feel like trying to swat a fly with your jazz, Yahtzee was on the ball about them and the fucking ogres, they can get fucked.

2023.05.29 17:12 echo_he1 HP envy 13 x360 convertible laptop not charging [FIXED]

My laptops 3 years extended warranty expired in December 2022. In these 3 years I have sent my laptop to service centre for 3 times. This laptop has heating issue and would restart due to over heat. 1. Battery swelling 2. Speaker sound rattling and tearing up 3. Display turning off when converted to tablet mode.
While my laptop was within warranty, it was easy for pickup and drop for repair. It was completely covered. This year my laptop had a bsod and now it won't turn on without the charger being plugged in .
After many interaction with HP customer support. I have come to conclusions. 1. Once your warranty is expired, you can't get extended warranty. 2. pickup and repair for battery would cost me 349€. 3. You cannot get spare parts from parts.hp store.
I decided to fix it by myself. It's hard to get a genuine replacement battery but after going through list of sites.
Bought repair tools from local store. Watched many YouTube videos to pry open the back cover without ruining it.
This hp laptop is modular and easy to fix, but to find genuine replacement parts online is the challenge. I don't know how long I can prolong the life of this laptop. But I enjoyed fixing it by myself.

2023.05.29 17:10 madmadmax862 I am not a gay man but.......

Look. I need a completely honest perspective from other straight dudes. I thought Shohei Ohtani was pretty cool when first finding out about him. He throws a baseball pretty hard and hits pretty far. When the Angels came to Baltimore and split a series with my O's, I was supposed to be in the stands the day Ohtani took the bump. But I was busy that day so I had to watch it online. And man. Idk. There was just something about him that was so captivating. He kinda got shelled for Ohtani standards, giving up 5 ER, including 2 HR through 7 avoiding a quality start, but still of course pitched above average. He also hit a 456 ft, 3 run tank that genuinely scared me when I heard it. Idk if any of you guys happened to catch the highlight of the game but it was genuinely silent in the stands for about 10 minutes after that. I've never heard a homerun so loud and commanding. And he looked pissed off and intimidating while doing it. After this, I found myself trolling one of my friends who doesn't know anything about baseball. In this instance, I wanted her to say if she found Shohei attractive, so I looked up the comical prompt of Shohei Ohtani looking handsome. And Jesus. Am I the only one who thinks this dude looks like a genuine anime protagonist? Not because he's Japanese but the broad shoulders, fit build, flowing hair. I wouldn't want to fuck him or anything but I just constantly catch myself admiring his handsomeness. Then this morning I got a post of him looking handsome in a suit on my explore page, prompting this post. What do you guys think? Anyway gonna go play The Show now.

2023.05.29 17:03 Willb000g Hoping to do my first marathon next year. Hoping to get some insight on training.

Long story short I’ll be turning 20 this year and I’ve been running on and off for pretty much my whole life and have fallen off running for the last couple months after a series of shoulder dislocations that made me a bit lazier than I should be at the moment.
Running a marathon has been a life goal of mine for a long time and I’m hoping to train up to a Marathon some time next year. I haven’t run for the past 2 months but before that my long runs we’re around 18kms at around a 5:30km pace(I’ve definitely lost quite a bit of fitness since then though.
Since I haven’t been running much recently I was thinking about doing a 10k race plan this summer. Half marathon training plan for the fall/end of the year and begin ramping up my mileage for a marathon in the early spring to do a summer marathon next year. Does this sound reasonable? Does anyone have any plans they’d recommend for a first time marathon? Also I have had some knee problems and shin splints in the past from running in highschool and was looking to see if anyone had any good stretching/strength protocols they follow so I can hopefully avoid this in the future.
Thanks in advance for the help getting me started on this journey towards hopefully completing my first marathon!

At San Diego Comic-Con in July, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had other people raising eyebrows when he said that his long-awaited superhero debut in Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant would be the beginning of “a new era” for the DC Extended Universe naturally followed: What did he mean? And what would that kind of reset mean for the remainder of DCEU's roster, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the rest of the Justice League, Suicide Squad, Shazam and so on.As
Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant neared theaters, though, Johnson clarified that statement in a recent sit-down with Yahoo Entertainment (watch above).
“I feel like this is our opportunity now to expand the DC Universe and what we have in Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant , which I think is really cool just as a fan, is we introduce five new superheroes to the world,” Johnson tells us. Aldis Hodge's Hawkman, Noah Centineo's Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell's Cyclone and Pierce Brosnan's Doctor Fate, who together comprise the Justice Society.) “One anti-hero.” (That would be DJ's Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant .)
“And what an opportunity. The Justice Society pre-dated the Justice League. So opportunity, expand out the universe, in my mind… all these characters interact. That's why you see in Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant , we acknowledge everyone: Batman , Superman , Wonder Woman, Flash, we acknowledge everybody.There's also some Easter eggs in there, too.So that's what I meant by the resetting. Maybe resetting' wasn't a good term.only
one can claim to be the most powerful superhero .And Johnson, when gently pressed, says it's his indestructible, 5,000-year-old Kahndaqi warrior also known as Teth-Adam, that is the most powerful superhero in any universe, DC, Marvel or otherwise
"By the way, it's not hyperbole because we made the movie."And we made him this powerful.
There's nothing so wrong with “Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant ” that it should be avoided, but nothing—besides the appealing presence of Dwayne Johnson—that makes it worth rushing out to see. spectacles that have more or less taken over studio filmmaking, but it accumulates the genre's—and the business's—bad habits into a single two- hour-plus package, and only hints at the format's occasional pleasures. “Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant ” feels like a place-filler for a movie that's remaining to be made, but, in its bare and shrugged-off sufficiency, it does one positive thing that, if nothing else, at least accounts for its success: for all the churning action and elaborately jerry-rigged plot, there's little to distract from the movie's pedestal-like display of Johnson, its real-life superhero.
It's no less numbing to find material meant for children retconned for adults—and, in the process, for most of the naïve delight to be leached out, and for any serious concerns to be shoehorned in and then waved away with dazzle and noise. Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant ” offers a moral realm that draws no lines, a personal one of simplistic stakes, a political one that suggests any interpretation, an audiovisual one that rehashes long-familiar tropes and repackages overused devices for a commercial experiment that might as well wear its import as its title.

In addition to being Johnson's DC Universe debut, “Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant ” is also notable for marking the return of Henry Cavill's Superman. The cameo is likely to set up future showdowns between the two characters, but Hodge was completely unaware of it until he saw the film.

Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant has finally ended the box office blues. It will be a close call, but based on the estimates, the year's biggest opener remains Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness with its $187 million start. Nonetheless, Wakanda Forever's $180 million opening is a huge one, being the biggest ever for the month of November (beating the $158 million of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire), the second biggest of the year, and the 13th biggest of all time (though it could go up or down a few slots once the actuals come out). It led an overall weekend box office of $208 million, which is the fourth biggest of the year and the biggest by a long shot of the past four months, with no other weekend since July 8 -10 even going above $133 million.
This isn't the $202 million opening that we saw from Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant in February 2018, nor should we expect the amazing legs that were able to get that film to an astonishing $700 million. With that said, expect it to perform strong throughout the holiday season, likely repeating the five-weekend number-one streak that the first film had, and it shouldn't have any trouble becoming the second highest grossing film of the year so far, beating the $411 million cume of Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. The audience response is strong, with the A CinemaScore falling below the first film's A+ but bouncing back from the B+'s earned by Doctor Strange 2 and Magic Mike's Last Dance, which ranked among the worst for the MCU. improvement over the recent franchise installations,with the aforementioned films coming in at 74% and 64% respectively on Rotten Tomatoes, both at the lower end for Marvel films, while Wakanda Forever's 84% is closer to franchise norms, though not meeting the high bar set by the first Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant 's 96%.
The sequel opened to $150 million internationally, which Disney reports is 4% ahead of the first film when comparing like for likes at current exchange rates. Overall, the global cume comes to $330 million. Can it become the year's third film to make it past $1 billion worldwide despite China and Russia, which made up around $124 million of the first film's $682 million international box office, being out of play? It may be tough, but it's not impossible. Legging out past $500 million is plausible on the domestic front (that would be a multiplier of at least 2.7), and another $500 million abroad would be a drop of around $58 million from the original after excluding the two MIA markets. It'd be another story if audiences didn't love the film,but the positive reception suggests that Wakanda Forever will outperform the legs on this year's earlier MCU titles (Multiverse of Madness and Love and Thunder had multipliers of 2.2 and 2.3 respectively).
As for the rest of the box office, there's little to get excited about, with nothing else grossing above $10 million as Hollywood shied away from releasing anything significant not just this weekend but also over the previous two weekends. When Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant opened in 2018, there was no counterprogramming that opened the same weekend, but Peter Rabbit and Fifty Shades Freed were in their second weekends and took second and third with $17.5 million and $17.3 million respectively. That weekend had an overall cume of $287 million compared to $208 million this weekend Take away the $22 million gap between the two Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant films and there's still a $57 million gap between the two weekends. The difference may not feel that large when a mega blockbuster is propping up the grosses,but the contrast is harsher when the mid-level films are the entire box office as we saw in recent months.
Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant , which is the biggest grosser of the rough post-summer, pre-Wakanda Forever season, came in second with just $8.6 million. Despite the blockbuster competition that arrived in its fourth weekend, the numbers didn't totally collapse, dropping 53 % for a cume of $151 million. Worldwide it is at $352 million, which isn't a great cume as the grosses start to wind down considering its $200 million budget. Still, it's the biggest of any film since Magic Mike's Last Dance, though Wakanda Forever will overtake it any day now.
Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant came in third place in its fourth weekend, down 29% with $6.1 million, emerging as one of the season's most durable grossers and one of the year's few bright spots when it comes to films for adults. The domestic cume is $56.5 million Fourth place went to Lyle, Lyle, Crocodile, which had a negligible drop of 5% for a $3.2 million sixth weekend and $40.8 million cume., in fact )
, which isn't surprising considering it's the only family film on the market, and it's close to grossing four times its $11.4 million opening. Still, the $72.6 million worldwide cume is soft given the $50 million budget , though a number of international markets have yet to open.
Finishing up the top five is Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant , which had its biggest weekend drop yet, falling 42% for a $2.3 million seventh weekend. Of course, that's no reason to frown for the horror film, which has a domestic cume of $103 million and global cume of $ 210 million from a budget of just $20 million.
The one new specialty title of note comes from a filmmaker we don't typically associate with the specialty box office: Steven Spielberg. The Beard's semi-autobiographical family drama Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant opened in four theaters in New York and Los Angeles to $160k, a $40k average. The film expands to 600 theaters the day before Thanksgiving, and it has the potential to break out in a way that none of the other of the season's awards contenders have. We're also seeing very solid numbers from Watch ‘The Magician's Elephant , which grossed $1.7 million this weekend for a seventh place finish, bringing its cume to $5.8 million.

2023.05.29 16:54 prrrrji My ex (22M) bought me (19F) a plant to take care of during our breakup and left me with so many questions

My ex loves taking care of plants. He bought me a white orchid to take care of before breaking up with me completely. We actually already broke up over the phone and I asked him to just end things there because I don't want to have to break down in front of him in person. He insisted on coming to see me. Maybe he was trying to convince to let go, maybe he missed me, maybe he wanted to show respect for me; I'm not sure. He told me to keep updating him about my life, and he'll ask our mutual friends how my life is going. He told me that I can reach out to him anytime and wanted to keep in touch. I told him we'll be strangers, he told me we'll be exes. He told me he'll always know me for who I am and see me as a person, I told him he'll never know my progress and I'll simply be a memory or character to him. I asked him how is dumping me so easy for him and how his feelings can change so quickly. Then, he raised his voice and asked me if he looks happy, if he looks good -- and he was right, he looked just as miserable. We kept hugging before he eventually left. We broke up due to my fault because I was the one who broke his trust through a series of trivial lies. He told me it's better for me to be single and we both have problems that we need to work on. I begged and begged and promised changes but he's not willing at all. No matter what, his mind is set on breaking up. I started going to therapy and owned up, but he's just not willing to get hurt. He was the first man to treat me right and now it feels like I'll never find someone who treats me right.
I just have so many questions. Why did he buy me a flower? Why did he want to see me? Once we heal, will we ever be able to be together again? Does he care if I feel sad? Does he care if I move on, especially when he broke up with me for my sake? Do dumpers ever reconsider? Do emotions for male dumpers sink in right away, or do they slowly sink it after a while? It's so hard to move on when he treated me so well and cared for me until the very end. I can't villainize him because it was my fault.
I can't get past this stage of self-blame. I can't breathe when I wake up, and I have no motivation to eat or drink or work. Yet, a part of me feels relieved that all the begging and the breaking up are finally over. I don't know why I keep on gravitating from being absolutely miserable to laughing and making jokes about the breakup to being relieved; and the cycle repeats. Have you guys ever felt relieved after being dumped?
tldr; my ex bought me a flower during our breakup and left me with so many unanswered questions

2023.05.29 16:51 fanficwriter1994 "Champion of Hyrule" Challenge Update

Note: This is an update on my challenge, since I had this idea brought to my attention. It kind of makes sense to me anyway.
You awaken, startled, and find yourself in a strange room with blue water flowing from up high, you standing in the center of a hexagonal platform with six other platforms, adorned each with a different symbol, at each of the points of your platform.
Standing on the platform with the yellow symbol you find a blonde woman who you would recognize to appear much like Princess Zelda from the The Legend of Zelda series, though none of them seem to match her appearance exactly.
"Greetings, traveler from another world." Speaks up the woman, smiling mildly at you. "I am Hylia, goddess of this realm and agent of the GOlden Goddesses who created it. I am sure you wonder how you got here or if this is even real, but I assure you, it is. I have brought you here on recommendation of a certain, impish deity from outside this realm, with a request." Explained Hylia and a lifts a hand to create a ball of light.
"I was granted the ability to host a, as your people call it, Jumpchain, and directed to take you on as a Jumper, as for why I am doing this, well... There hasn't been born a hero in this timeline. Link doesn't exist here." She sighs and shakes her head.
"For that reason, I have called on you, to take the role, so let me get to the actual rules next." She explains.
  1. You must take each Main Series Zelda game jump in chronological Order, as in the timeline chronological order.
I. Skyward Sword
II. Minish Cap
III. Four Swords
IV. Ocarina of Time
V. Majora's Mask
VI. Twilight Princess
VII. Four Swords Adventures
VIII.1 Adult Timeline/Downfall Timeline your choice
VIII.2 Wind WakeA Link to the Past
VIII.3 Phantom Hourglass/Link's Awakening
VIII.4 Spirit Tracks/Oracle of Ages or Seasons
VIII.5 None/Other Oracle game
VIII.6 None/Oracle of Scenario
VIII.7 None/A Link Between Worlds
VIII.8 None/Zelda 1 Gauntlet
VIII.9 None/Zelda 2
IX. Breath of the Wild (Final of this section of the chain)
  1. You may not use the Universal Drawbacks Supplement.
  2. You may only use standard Supplements such as Cosmic Warehouse or it's replacers, Bodymod as well as Housing, Dock and so on Supplements.
  3. You can choose 1 Drawback in a Jump when you make your build, it's negative effects are doubled but you may take it's CP into all other Jumps too, granting that CP the Drawback gave to your starting budget.
  4. CP carried over from Drawbacks are cut in half during Gauntlets.
  5. Companion Purchases and Imports are free of charge.
  6. If you hook up with somebody and have a child, it can become a Companion.
  7. You cannot quit the chain until you're done with all of the above jumps as well as one more additional Jump.
  8. You must take the role of Link and do his job.
  9. As Link, you must be Hylian though in the Adult Timeline you may choose to be one of the other races as that Link wasn't initially chosen but become the hero of his own volition, you carry the race choice into the Spirit Tracks Jump.
  10. Heart Container are a thing here too, but you will start each Zelda Jump with only the starting 3 heart containers. They work as damage sponges, keeping you save and healthy until they run out.
  11. You cannot take the Triforce between the Jumps of this section of the chain, if you as Link would have one of the Triforce aspects, fine, that is just part of the jump. But you cannot rip the Triforce of Power out of Ganondorf's stiff corpse after Twilight Princess and take it into Four Swords Adventures, sorry.
  12. During Gauntlets and Powerloss situations (Item or Perk loss) you may choose 10 Perks and 10 Items from the jumps listed above and take them along into those jumps but they're scaled down to local levels if they're too OP.
She took another breath, smiling a bit. "Naturally I won't demand this without further recompense after you save my world, naturally." She states and takes a last breath before running into the rewards for basically marathoning all of the Zelda Franchise:
  1. You will be known in future Jumps as "The Hero of Light", with all things dark and evil knowing you on sight and knowing that you have faced far worse than them in your time. This grants you the sort of treatment reserved for police officers as these beings know, you are the Immune System against their kind.
  2. You may take Generic First Jump, Generic Virgin and Generic First Gauntlet following this series of jumps. However, Gauntlet rules for powers are in effects in these jumps.
  3. You are granted the Triforce for real this time, though because of divine politics it isn't omnipotent outside the world of Hyrule. Once per year it can be used to grant a wish up to and incuding something on the level of restoring the Lorule Triforce or reviving the dead.
  4. The Triforce grants, for each of it's components, one of the following boons:
I. Power: Grants Immortality up to three times a Jump with only extreme damage from weapons that are explicitly powerful against you working. Also grants a x10 boost to all physical attributes.
II. Wisdom: Grants near limitless magical power, greatly increase intelligence, a x10 multiplier to the speed at which you're learning new information, as well as allowing you to grant your Perks to another person if they agree to it.
III. Courage: Never be frozen in fear, always able to react and act. You also have a strong will, able to withstand incredible hardships, resist attempts to break your will and even resist any and all efforts to possess you. Lastly, no amount of time can rust your blade, your skills will remain as fresh and well oiled as if you had been practicing nonstop for years. Lastly, if you would die for real, another you is born and the plot and your time in a Jump shall not continue until that you is at least 12 years old, which in Zelda terms means they're ready to kick ass and take names.
IV.1 Additionally, the three grant the following spells: Din's Fire: Create a powerful fireblast around you at base, may also be used as Pyrokinesis and heat control.
IV.2 Nayru's Wisdom: Create a bubble shield around you that lasts 3 minutes at base, may also create a panel or large dome shield of up to 50 meters in circumference. Attacks cannot penetrate this shield while it lasts.
IV.3 Farore's Wind: A Teleportation Spell, can bring you to any building you've been to or out of a building you're in, regardless of teleportation restrictions. Has enough range to reach the International Space Station in your world from the Mariana's Trench's deepest point.
  1. All of your Companions, gained here, share a Companion Slot, meaning that for the price of one Companion, all of them can be imported. However, they do not share the same companion stipend, instead each gets their own as separate companions with a +400 CP to any stipend they would get and another +300 CP for Item Sections and any special sections of a jump. Don't want your comrades getting held back, right?
  2. Weapon purchases and upgrades stack, all manual upgrades are also fiat backed. In essence, if you have several purchases of the L2 upgrade applied to, say, the Master Sword, each of them will multiply the power of said weapon.
  3. Fi, Sword of the Hero: The spirit of the Master Sword, Fi, has regained complete self-awareness and may manifest once more in physical form. I have integrated knowledge acquisition abilities into her that will work in all future jumps similar to how it worked in the time of Skyloft. She also imports separate from Companion Slots automatically with 800 general CP and 400 CP as a stipend for Item sections and other sections like that separate from Items or Perks. CP from importing her directly naturally stacks on top of that but not in the way of the other companions. Lastly, she can, like in Hyrule Warriors, assume the form of the Master Sword which she can manipulate telekinetically and has all the same upgrades and powers as your own strongest variant.
  4. The powers of the champions are now your own to command. Mipha's Grace, Daruk's Protection, Urbosa's Fury, Revali's Gale and Link's Time Dilation are all abilities you now possess on the same level as said champions, and yes, the time dilation is an actual ability, not just a game mechanic. However, Daruk's Protection doesn't work against electricity and can be broken through, and Mipha's Grace still takes some time to cast.
  5. Hyrulean Hero: You have earned the loyalty, friendship and in some cases love, of so many people in this world, why should we leave you to on with just a pittance of that? At will you can summon an army of Hyrule's various races of light, from Hylians to Koroks and Kokiri, of all the eras you have visited. They are equipped to the peak of their respective armed forces capabilities, Hylian Knights standing with Goron Warriors, Zora Pikeman flanking Kokiri Bowman and Gerudo Skirmishers preparing to charge in after Rito bombing runs, Sheikah Shinobi preparing to go in with an army of Guardians. Just be careful, this is still a medieval army, Guardians or not.
  6. (NEW) Companions can import into Generic First/Virgin Jump/Gauntlet with 1000 C to use and a Origin of their choice. They will come along with you through the levels of the Jump/Gauntlet, obviously.
Once again she took her time to breath through after the rant, before smiling at you. "So yes, please do your best to be the very spirit of the hero, I will await the day you finish. Ah, another thing: The various actions you can perform and the detriments that are listed, they all apply to jumps after the jumps here in this world, only that you don't need to continue into another Zelda Jump, if there are any left." She explains and smirks a bit.
"Naturally I wouldn't mind having one or more Zeldas coming along with you, I heard it is fairly entertaining when the fate of my world isn't at stake. Hint Hint."

2023.05.29 16:40 spacegoat243 Does anybody know how to play the old Flash games?

I've been trying to play "Coolest Coaster Designer Ever" using a Flash emulator. The game works like it should except for actually riding the coaster when you build it. The countdown ends and the cars are frozen. Does anyone have any way I could play this?
