2023.03.31 09:14 thisismypornaltlolol Are there any classes or resources available to help improve peer to peer communication and conversion
I want to make a change for the better to help me navigate the world myself and not rely on others. I’ve been making improvements in a lot of areas through therapy, reading, and whatnot. But the main thing that I feel continues to hold me back and always has held me back is my inability to have a conversation, understand people, and be understood by people. Because of this I was wondering if there were any classes I could take that would help me with speaking, communicating and conversing in general.

2023.03.31 09:14 76SUP Respect Hunahpu and Xbalanque! (Popol Vuh)
Known together as the Maya Hero Twins, Hunahpu and Xbalanque are the central characters of the narrative within the Popol Vuh document, the oldest Mayan myth that we have preserved in its entirety. They went on many adventures together, with their main goal being to avenge their father, who was slain by the lords of the underworld Xibalba, One Death and Seven Death.
For this respect thread, I'll be using the Allen J. Christenson translation of the Popol Vuh. Christenson made both a direct, literal translation of the original K'iche' text as well as one that attempts to be more traditionally readable. After reading both, I'll be using the readable version - trust me, it doesn't add anything in or change anything, it just condenses the text so that you don't need to read incredibly long sections of poetic broken English like this that only explain a few actions.
- After a man named One Hunahpu had his head severed by the lords of the underworld, it was placed into a tree; the daughter of an underworld lord, Lady Blood, would later come to look at this tree. Hunahpu's skull spat on her, causing her to become pregnant.
- After they were born, her two sons were mistreated by Grandmother and their two older half-brothers, One Batz and One Chouen. They were abandoned at first on an anthill, then on a thornbush, and when they became older and started hunting birds for themselves, they had their food taken away.
- The two got their revenge on their older brothers by tricking them into climbing high into a tree. The tree suddenly swelled in size, leaving the older brothers unable to climb back down. After the twins told them to wear their loincloths in a certain way, they turned into monkeys. This was apparently somehow something the twins did.
Physicals Strength and Speed
- The underworld of Xibalba has a number of trials, which the twins father and uncle ultimately fell to. There's several dangerous rivers to cross, a bench that's secretly a burning hot stone, and a number of houses laden with traps and monsters.
- The twins pass over the dangerous rivers by floating over them using their blowguns. This includes the Pus River and Blood River, which are exactly what you'd expect.
- After the twins' loss at a ballgame, they're ordered to give the Xibalbans a large amount of flowers as a prize the next day. That night, they instruct a bunch of ants to gather the flowers for them from the Xibalban's garden while they deal with another trial.
- After Hunahpu gets decapitated in another trial, he has a new one made for him out of a squash; the twins engage the Xibalbans again in another final ballgame, winning by having a rabbit distract the lords of the underworld, then swapping out Hunahpu's squash head for the original and finally shattering the squash head. Gonna be honest, I really don't get the rules of this game or the rules of this trial.
Noticing the Obvious
- When the twins are put into the pitch black House of Darkness and tempted with cigars and a torch for light, they keep strong and deny both. Instead, they trick the Xibalbans by putting a red macaw feather on top of the torch and using fireflies as pretend cigars.
- When the twins are put into the dangerous Blade House for a night, which is trapped with many cutting blades, the twins just tell the blades not to cut them, which works somehow.
- When the twins are put into the hail-filled, immeasurably cold House of Cold, they just destroy the coldness somehow.
- When the twins are put into the ravenous jaguar-filled Jaguar House, they just feed the jaguars some bones they had around.
- When the twins are put into the roasting-hot flame-filled House of Fire, they just don't get burnt.
- The twins finally meet their match in the Bat House, which is infested with razor-snouted death bats. They at first succeed from hiding from the bats inside of their blowguns, but when Hunahpu peeks his head out, he's swiftly decapitated.
Tricks Slaying Evil
- To defeat Seven Macaw after first failing to just shoot him with a blowgun, they got the assistance of Grandmother and Grandfather. They told them to pretend to be healers, then rip out Seven Macaw's teeth and eyes.
- To defeat Zipacna, they created an elaborate fake crab using a rock and flowers, planting it in a cave at the bottom of a mountain. Zipacna liked eating crabs, so they lead him to the crab and had him crawl into the cave to get it. He had to crawl on his back to make the attempt, but somehow the mountain collapses on Zipacna at this point, trapping him and turning him to stone for some reason.
- To defeat Cabracan, they befriended him, then fed him a bird covered in dirt, which somehow sapped him of his power. They then tied him up and buried him alive.
Equipment Seen Repeatedly
- The Xibalbans still plan to kill the twins after they beat their trials. They don't scatter their bones or hang them, since they think they could just revive from it, but ultimately decide to bake them in a large oven, ground their bones to dust, and throw it into a river. The twins willingly allow them to do this to them, and wind up later on reviving anyways; first, they appear as two "people-fish", then as two poor orphan boys dressed in rags.
- These two orphans have incredible dancing skills. Their skills somehow give them the ability burn down buildings and instantly recreate them, and the power to repeatedly sacrifice themselves and revive after.
- Their dancing talents draw them enough fame to be invited to Xibalba to perform for the underworld lords.
- With their dances, they're able to revive a sacrificed dog, restore a burnt down house, revive a man with his heart cut out, and revive Hunahpu after he's had all of his limbs severed, his head removed, and his heart removed.
- Eventually, the lords of Xibalba ask for the orphans to sacrifice and revive them. This had been their plan all along; the two kill One Death and Seven Death, but refuse to revive them, finally taking revenge.
- The Xibalban lords and their vassals and servants all flee into a ravine, but they're swarmed by innumerable ants. The orphans arrive, planning to kill all of the Xibalbans, but after they beg for their lives they decide to spare them. However, they go on to make several demands of the Xibalbans, basically telling them to live terrible lives and only take sinners down to the underworld rather than just everyone.
- After finding what was left of their father and comforting him, the two rise as lights into the sky, becoming the sun and the moon.

2023.03.31 09:13 weaselorgy420 23M, what would bone pain from vitamin D deficiency feel like? Or is it nerve pain, something else?
23M, 215lbs, 6ft white, no drugs smoking or drinking, just started supplementing b12 orally and D3.
My legs have been having this deep shooting or radiating pain for a couple months and I really can’t tell what’s causing it. On a couple occasions it was hurting in my arms too. It happens frequently just standing or even laying in bed. I went to the doctor a few weeks ago because I’ve been having b12 deficiency numbness and tongue issues as well as my legs hurting and they did a bunch of tests. My b12 was like 354 (was at 252 a couple of years ago when they had me supplement orally) and my vit D was at 20ng/ml. They told me no b12 injection, but they gave my mom one :(
I’ve been playing phone tag ever since I had these tests done, only one time did I speak to someone and it was a nurse who just read to me what I could already see in my patient portal that my vitamin d was low, b12 questionable given symptoms and history, and my testosterone was on the low side of normal. The only thing she told me was to supplement vitamin d if I wanted to and I asked about testosterone and how much vit d to take and she said she’d call back after asking the doctor but it’s been another week with no response.
I’ve been having this leg pain since January when I did a little bit of running (2-3 days) playing soccer and got shin splints in both legs, or what I assumed was that. It was so bad that I could barely walk and it took like 3-4 weeks until it stopped hurting to walk. Then I started getting the deeper shooting bone pain just sitting or laying down. Now it’s mainly just my left leg and it’s shifted more towards my ankle but it shoots up my shins. I do Olympic weightlifting and it gets really aggravated and painful. When I sit at the bottom of a squat (slav squat) it feels like my legs are going to snap and give out when I come back up. The pain is so sharp that it actually makes my leg give out and I limp. I started taking 5000IU D3 gummies last week and I noticed some improvement but that’s probably placebo for just one week but I skipped it yesterday and my leg hurt real bad today. I can walk and jump without it hurting, it just randomly hurts deep in my leg with no warning for a brief moment and is especially prevalent after stomping around in the gym. If it were a stress fracture I’d imagine I’d feel it jumping…
Is this bone pain or nerve pain? My feet and legs often get a little numb and tingly from what I imagine is the b12. The best way I can describe the pain is that it feels deep, dull, and sharp but shooting which is kind of using all the words people describe pain which makes it sound unhelpful :(

2023.03.31 09:13 MysticFoxWisdom Their character is insufferable
I have a role play partner right now who’s amazing at writing but all their characters are insufferable.
When we first started role playing he apologized to me and told me that a lot of people don’t enjoy his characters because they are often “men who have toxic masculinity issues” and I replied with something along the lines of “that’s okay characters who grow as people during the story are my favorite.” And they literally said “oh he won’t change.”
I don’t know why I kept role playing with them. But my character has been constantly insulted and even hurt physically by theirs at every chance. We had wanted this story to be a enemies to lovers situation but at this point I can’t even imagining my girl falling for his character.
My character cant even talk about anything without being insulted. Their characters inner thoughts are only ever how my character disgusts them or how much they want to kill mine.
Any time I try to advance their relationship by having my character be more kind it’s immediately met with cruelty. And at this point I can’t even think of a way to get my character to like his. It’s impossible at this point. Because there is nothing to like.
Their character is angry when my character helps because it emasculates him, and so he responds by insulting or beating my character.
Their character won’t allow any moments for them to bond and if mine tries it’s suddenly a situation where my character is being “pathetic” or my character is just completely ignored
And if for any reason my character even mentions to their other characters that they even know or helped him, then my character is “betraying” him because he doesn’t want anyone to know he needed help or that he even knows my character. And my character gets treated worse than how bad they were already being treated in his retaliation.
I’m starting to understand why they said people hate their characters and don’t like role playing with them.
Enemies to lovers is supposed to feel exciting and fun, but I’m finding it hard to want them to be lovers, in fact I’m debating throwing this whole rp away even though I’ve created a close bond with my partner and I love his writing style and long posts. But to add insult they hardly ever write back. I’m lucky to get one reply a week…which is making me lose a lot of hope.
Even though my character was the only one trying to bond while being insulted constantly, when I would talk to my partner they would be blaming everything that happened to my character on my characters “stupidity”
That “stupidity” was basically anything my character would do. If they were nice, if they tried to defend themselves, if they helped their character, if they didnt. It got to the point where I didn’t even know how to respond anymore, everything I made her do she was treated badly for it. At one point my partner said that they don’t know how my character is even going to survive because his character might just kill mine.
I’m just so tired…I really want a good partner and I’ve been searching for months. I’m sad that I hardly get replies and when I do…it’s just my character being treated like trash and being blamed for everything.

2023.03.31 09:13 Ice_Stormyk sharing my overall stats / planning test / looking for your opinions
Hello reddit , i am new here , but straight to the point . I would like to share with you my overall stats , training , diet , my current physique , supplement use and plan for my first cycle .
Years of working out : 3-4
Age : 21
Weight : 78.20kg ( I just ended my heavy bulk season where I went from 62kg to 80kg in 3 months and now Iam few weeks into clean bulk where I went to 78kg . My stages are usually Dirty bulk 3 months , clean bulk 3 months and then 3 months cut , I know you might think it's stupid etc but it just works best for me - I tried many variations . )
Height : 175 cm
Bodyfat : 13,5% ( in cut I can easily manage 6-8%
BMI : 25.5
body water : 62,5%
Weight without fat : 67.86kg
Body mass : 64.30kg My macros at clean bulk :
3500 cals 200g protein 360 carbs 80 fat My basic day of eating with supplements ( in clean bulk ) :
Empty stomach : Tribulus , Aswaghanda, Ecdysterone , B-complex , Vitamin C
breakfest : musli with milk
after breakfest supplements : D3 + k1 + Fish Oil
snack : oats protein blueberries water shake
lunch : chicken breast with rice/potatos and veggies
snack : oats protein shake
dinner : chicken breast with veggies
before sleep : zinc , magnesium , cbd oil
Once a while I take Agrez (pre workout supplement! before working out My training split ( I usually switch every 2-3 months ) :
Monday : hamstrings + calves
Tuesday : shoulders + triceps
Wednesday : back + biceps
Thursday: quadriceps + calves
Friday : chest + triceps
Saturday : rest
Sunday : rest - wellness ( Russian sauna , ice bath )
As I mentioned iam at clean bulk atm and I do 10 min fasted uphill run every day beside leg days and I workout abs on empty stomach every other day . I also do ice bath every day for 1-3 minutes for regeneration.
My view at me is that I strictly follow diet , train hard ,most importantly I train good and I have 7-8 hours of sleep . I used to have trainer for my first year for gym/diet . Iam overall very active , I like to go on long walks , ride bike , iam also an amateur boxer I train once a week with friends . I don't drink alcohol and also I don't smoke . My actual physique : https://imgur.com/a/7OnYNPL Cycle plan : Test C 16 weeks
16 weeks - 400mg/week split in 2 then jump on TRT 200mg/week for 20 weeks until next cycle. Also forgot to mention I take Cialis every other day 30mg for pump / better erections .
So my question is what you guys think about this plan I have inside my head ? Not that I did not do my own research , I did study it a lot , but I would like to know your honest opinions on this one . I was also thinking about doing TRT after the cycle ( I know what it is and I know its for life ) but what if I just didn't do pct but instead I would do TRT between cycles . And then when I would be totally happy with my physique I would just stay on TRT . ( I know many people do this but what. you guys think about it)
If you have read the whole post thanks , let me know your honest opinion , wish ya all amazing day with even more amazing workout ! )))

2023.03.31 09:13 ThrowRA9-3 If a guy (30M) is liking other girls revealing pictures does that mean he still likes the girl (21F) he’s with?
This may seem pretty self conscious but I’m genuinely curious. I’ve had this happen in my last relationship and I found out later on that guy (22M) was cheating on me and doing lots of stuff behind my back the whole time, so I’m just trying my best to be careful in future relationships. I just saw that the guy (30M) I’ve been talking to for about a year now has been liking this one girls revealing pictures recently and it just brings me back to my past relationship and all the things I just didn’t think were possible warning signs but ended up being so. He seems to be serious about me like he’s asked me if I’d live with him on multiple occasions, has talked about a future with me, and he tells me he really cares about me. I’m honestly in love with him (I haven’t told him yet because it seems too early) but seeing this makes me scared to even mention it because he can really hurt me at this point and I’m not sure what I could even do about it . I’ve been working to get over the past relationship trauma and unlearn toxic traits that I had developed during that relationship but I can’t help but feel me being insecure about this is somehow bad like I feel guilty even questioning it because I couldn’t see him hurting me like that but on the other hand I never saw it coming with my ex either. If anyone has any insight, opinions, or even just advice about this situation I’d really love to hear it.

2023.03.31 09:13 New-Initiative-8167 Should I tell parents about CSA
The caretaker of my after school program sexually assaulted me, and eventually raped me around the ages 6-10. He manipulated me, and scared me into silence. After a while I couldn’t handle the shame and I repressed it. I’ve now recovered the majority of the memories, hopefully. But I still have ALOT of missing time. I’d like to confide in my mother, we are close and she is really caring and loving. But she struggles with her mental health, and always has. I’m fearful of putting it on her. My brother took his life a few years back, which she is still completely shattered over. I’m afraid that this might be too much for her to take on. Any advice is appreciated greatly 🙏🏼

2023.03.31 09:12 CompleteLandscape791 how to stop jacking off forever
if you’re a guy reading this with a problem, I’ve got the solution.
I recently decided to stop jerking off because it was affecting with my mood day to day, and I was noticing some death grip when I had sex.
it just so happens that I was out a few nights ago and we decided to check out a porn theatre we’d seen on a city street a few times out of morbid curiosity.
i don’t know what I expected, but going inside of that theatre was absolutely horrifying. it was dark, smelled like sweat, and i immediately saw three dudes jerking off to out of focus porn poorly projected onto a screen. it wasn’t even a dvd or anything it was just an anal scene on pornhub or something. to the right of the screen there was a tv playing a video of a woman giving a guy a rimjob. I made eye contact with a guy sitting in a back row, and decided to get the fuck out of there after 40 seconds.
i looked at porn last night and I felt sick to my stomach. it was messed up in there and i think it really fucked me up.
if you jerk off too much, google porn theatre and drive to one. walk in and take that shit in. it’s hell.

2023.03.31 09:12 Few-Package8047 A life of experiences, need a safe space/support
Forgot to add, I'm using a dupe account for anonymity.
Alright, this is something I need to open up with. This is something about which I need like minded people to talk to and piece this all together. It’s ruining my sleep (I got three hours last night because I was so terrified of falling back asleep and waking up to something unpleasant), making me snap into fight or flight responses when I hear the damn crockpot say it’s done because something behind me spoke, and something that is making the stress and worry in my life infinitely worse.
I’m like 99.9% sure I’ve been abducted by aliens.
Now… This is something that I feel has been happening for a while and it’s always kinda been a running gag between me and my family/friends. “There goes *name and address withheld*, how were the aliens last night?” they’d say. “Oh, creepy, as usual, sound based paralysis, keeping me knocked out, the classic” I’d reply. And I’d be off on my next adventure! But it wasn’t a joke to me. I could delve more into previous experiences and I want to since I feel you all could help me. However, I want to jump to what I feel was the turning point in all this because as scary as waking up paralyzed and unable to scream was, sleep paralysis is a real disorder. I wrote a note asking the aliens to stop abducting me and the paralysis stopped for a while but that could easily have been psycho-symatic. I lived in a haunted house (a whole other story but don’t worry the ghosts were friendly) so of course I would be scared of the dark in some way and be worried about seeing faces outside the window or felt myself being watched. Heck, once or twice I kinda felt myself floating a bit waking up at night but that could easily have been me being woozy from having suddenly woken up at night. Things continued like that on and off from childhood to early adulthood.
Before recently, it was only sleep paralysis and maybe a weird dream or two followed by some odd thoughts or sensations like snapping awake and either feeling or having a voice in my head say “it’s okay it’s all over now” (which only started happening a few years after the first few paralysis episodes as a teen/young adult).
Fast forward, past childhood, teenage years, into adulthood having moved out and things began getting more intense (which does not necessarily mean malevolent as I’ll get into). I suddenly had multiple experiences where I “saw” something.
Now... “Saw” is a bit of a loaded term. In my entire life there's really only been a couple moments that I think I could qualify as having "SEEN" them which are the most recent moment, funnily enough.
As of the past year or so, I now have three categories of experiences. The most vivid are waking moments where I can tell I'm not in a dream, although I am sometimes not fully conscious, like having a snippet of something like half waking up from anesthesia and then passing out again (although never experiencing some horrible experimentation thing). These include moments like seeing I’m kinda dangling in the air and thinking “cool! This is happening!! (sudden change in feeling as I wake up more as if my dream state and waking state react differently) wait… Oh shit this is happening okay be calm hold up I’m gonna bump into that window no it’s gonna let me through and dematerialize” that sort of thing. Second is dreams that become more real, like one time I was dreaming normally and suddenly found myself choosing to run into the master bathroom, then it felt more real and I was crying to “please, just leave me alone” and feeling pure and utter shame and disgrace that I left my wife sleeping in the bed while I let my instinctual fear take hold of me before a sudden, short buzz snapped through my forehead and I was calm and walked out and there were two tanish (color not fully remembered) not too short Grey aliens, one leaning in the doorway and another sitting on the bed and then the dream was over. Finally there were just dreams like when I was practicing being a keeper in soccer and was doing well but then when a harder opponent came I got distracted by trying to do nice things instead of being a keeper (like getting the ball when the opponent said don’t because it’s their job to get the ball they kicked too far). That made the opponent feel disappointed in me and I felt bad I failed them but I somehow knew it was aliens training me or something and thus I had to work on my focus because they’re training me and training involves not being perfect. Obviously those dreams are the ones I least expect people to believe regardless of any information I give.
I’m sorry if I sound disjointed or rambling so far. I just have a lot of things about which I have never spoken about so I feel I have to mention this stuff.
But, let's get into the first time that I, in my waking state and no possible super realistic dream, saw something.
There’s been 3 of those where I believe I saw an alien. But the first was back in the middle of last year when my wife was abroad on vacation. I refused to sleep in the bedroom almost the entire time because I was terrified of them abducting me and not having my wife there as ... I dunno, another person to help, comfort me, etc? I think this was after that bathroom dream where I felt shame and another similar incident. But I digress. I slept on the couch with the tv on and facing the bedroom door, ready to pop up at any time and see them (I still fall asleep with a view on the entire room in case I wake up so I can see them). But still, I finally worked up the courage on the very last day before she came home to sleep in there because something told me in my head, or some feeling, that it was important that I slept in there at least once. I felt it was the beings telling me I had to overcome my fear and be able to go with them or that I knew it from somewhere else. So... I left some long ass video playing on my phone and passed out on top of the sheets in my clothes not even laying on the pillows. This was hours after I normally went to sleep because I was procrastinating- I mean getting the courage lololol.
I slept for a few hours, and... At the end of the dream I was having, it suddenly morphed into something of that second kind I mentioned. Say what you want, but the dream had a different feel to it then, more tangible and real but not quite as vivid and in a real location like the bathroom one. For some reason, the submerged school I was in with fish swimming in the halls had a certain presence. I was suddenly trying to influence the fish and water and everything but couldn’t get it. Then some large entity like maybe a whale or shadow of a manta ray was nearby and I said something like “oh, I am slowing down time but only for me because you’re slowing down time around me”. I forget the exact words and looking back they don’t make the most sense but the main idea was that whatever I was doing with time was being counteracted and it was a revelation that I wasn’t fucking up, I “got it”. Then, the “camera” the view of the dream shifted and I saw the “sport model” ufo ( Picture of the "sport model"
) fly from my position into the next room of the school and land on a pedestal near the back with the water all swirling around beneath it. For some reason, I knew this was the ship taking me home and I was getting a glimpse of the craft, allowed to know just a BIT more about what I experienced instead of having my memories wiped.
Okay, bit weird, but like, at that point I was all in the UFOs
and UAP legislation rabbit hole. Of course I had a weird dream about it.
Except… When I woke up at dawn and looked out my bedroom door, I saw, half in the hallway bathroom doorway... A Grey. A typical, short, big headed, big eyed alien. Naked though, no jumpsuit, I don’t think, but I guess I could be wrong because it was sort of hazy. I snapped up onto my hands and knees, half leaning forward to get a better look and half trying to fully wake up. Before this I had actually said to my wife that I’m sure plenty of people would willingly go with aliens and let them do some medical tests and all that if they asked nicely so they could learn about us and we could learn about them. I honestly would if they just rang me up and asked so I could see a real life spaceship and help them know more about my species. So, I thought, with the dream I just had, were they finally just gonna come over and not be all spooky and say hello and we can be friends? I hopped up and said “Hi!” in some sort of breathy like thank god you’re here sort of tone which was a HUGE deal for me because I worked for YEARS to overcome my innate TERROR of even a basic DRAWING of a Grey alien and also switch my fight or flight response half because of how I felt during previous sleep paralysis or weird dream experiences. However, the alien was kind of frozen, it was t-posing like a glitched game character for lack of a better word, and it eventually disappeared into the muted blue nothing of the fading night, like it went from 50% opacity to 0. It didn’t feel like a dream then. I was awake and getting out of the bed and I’ve never hallucinated before when in the pre waking twilight. Heck, I never really saw anything when having sleep paralysis and that’s a symptom of sleep paralysis. And then I just sort of... Went about my day from then.
I just sort of knew at that moment for a fact that they were seeing how my waking self would respond to seeing one of them. I feel it may not have even been a real alien but just a projection or a dummy. The feeling of the real me, the dream state self, being totally cool with them but the waking self tied to the fleshy bone sack with animal instincts having that innate “WHOA WTF” feeling I have to deal with is something I’ve felt for a bit.
Still, there are two other waking moments where I saw a Grey alien but never a clear and obvious moment, always obscured in some way, but, so far, I feel that’s the point. I’m not supposed to see them flat out yet, you know? I’m not supposed to be one of those people who claim they got to walk around the ship yet. I’m getting closer as the very last encounter told me, but I’m supposed to wait and go on faith and live out my life without the full confirmation and with the element of uncertainty to fully experience the last few days of this era with all its ups and downs before they reveal themselves and everything changes.
And, I mean, no matter how scared I was or what may have been done to me or if they were teaching me like in that dream... If I was taken, I’ve always been put back and I’m never hurt. Some people claim to have huge cuts or something. But I’ve never had that. I’d lived in the woods for the majority of my life so maybe some of the bruises I thought were just from random branches smacking me while hiking were from them and I did recently have one weird abrasion on me, but I’ve never been really hurt. And if I was helpless and put snuggly back in my bed, they don’t wish me real harm because I couldn’t have stopped them. From what I can tell, all of this fits with the obvious fact that whatever those UAP the government finally admitted exist actually are, we’re not dead yet since nothing we have could counter a ship that can pull 5000gs. So… they’re at least not malevolent and maybe just ambivalent which I’ll take. Or at least some aren’t evil and I’ll take that too.
I have no idea if I’m just crazy like I said before or not. But, just typing all this out I realized with how the UAP legislation talks about so many sightings going into water and how I felt I was being taught and thus the dream was in an underwater school... I mean... I did always have this weird fascination with things being able to just dive into the water and rocket away under there into a whole new world where nothing else could touch them.
And add to that one time my I nodded off on the couch with my head on my wife, then I suddenly popped up, gasping, like I was some veteran with PTSD ready to attack the person waking me up (which I do enough that she jokes about it) to which she replied “boy, that meeting with aliens really fucked you up, huh?” Another reason on top of a few I feel she knows more than she’s telling me and is here to help me through this. To be frank, I wonder if she’s an alien or was abducted too and they let her in on what’s going on because she’s REALLY good at keeping a secret lol.
Holy jeebus I just postulated that my wife’s an alien wow. Maybe I am crazy.
All I can say is this is all exactly what I experienced. I mean, I live in a city (not a big one but still) with a military airbase. Like, how would an alien ship not get noticed? So, maybe my stress is finally getting to me. But it’s just one weird experience on top of another and another. There are other incidents like when I began being taken away from my bed where I saw what looked more like a floating Grey alien doll than a real one. And there was the most recent event where I woke up to my wife cradling me like she did during another waking event telling me it’s okay before I saw what I think was the most clear and true real alien a couple weeks ago. Again, all I know is this is what I experienced, real or not. I mean, I grew up in a haunted house so weird stuff isn't new to me at all. I used to play with the ghost there who I named Gigi when I was a kid. All I can really rely on is the basics. If I'm just crazy then as I get my head more in order this will stop, but if it's real, I'm still here with no ill effects beyond being scared witless sometimes so they at least don't want me hurt or dead when they very easily could do that.
And I mean, hey, if it is real, kinda cool aliens or whatever thought I was interesting enough to visit, right? And I never feel they mean me any ill will, if anything I kind of get the vibe it’s just necessary and unfortunate that I specifically have to go through thisexact thing but I know I’d rather deal with 10 minutes of pain for a year of pleasure than let myself live with a problem forever. If they’re training me and watching me and helping me, that’s kinda awesome and really gives me purpose in life. I just wish they’d be honest with me so I can know to fully devote myself. I’d feel bad if I didn’t succeed in the training or if I disappointed them. I’d love to be good enough for them and myself. But then again, I kinda feel I never got much praise as a kid so maybe that’s what’s contributing to these hallucinations. I wish I’d just know if I’ve finally lost it and I can go see a doctor, lol.
Before finishing typing this though, I did a bit more research and, apparently, according to other people who claim to have been abducted or to have seen Greys, them vanishing into thin air like the one I saw isn't that uncommon. So... There's that at least. Although it's very possible I've heard that before and simply forgot but it was still in my head somewhere and that made the alien I saw disappear in a waking dream. I still feel I saw something and I wasn't dreaming it though. Still that's the only time I saw one disappear like that and the other two I saw when waking, or the other two times I saw them when a dream started to become real, didn't do that either.
The US congress is holding public hearings in April on UFOs so… We'll see.
Anyways, thanks for coming to my TED Talk.
Peace, friends. <3

2023.03.31 09:12 Redrastafari18765 Garp will betray the WG
What if garp switch sides on the final war? He probably knows how dirty WG operates and he hates the WG. Plus, roger could've told Garp about Joyboy right? They've fought countless of times and probably have high respects with each other. Plus the Godvalley Incident which is a confidential information. He probably knows more than that since he has been living his entire life as a marine.
Additionaly, while Garp knows that Joyboy will come back, he patiently sits and pretend working as a Vice Admiral as a preparation to bring down the WG. He also sacrifices a lot like letting Ace die when he could've actually done something. For someone who wants to bring down the WG, he knew that taking WG down wouldn't be that easy. He needs to endure those pain to maintain his final goal.
It could be a good storyline if things go that way, also Garp might've been secretly contacting Dragon in order to bring down WG.
(Sorry for bad english, not my native tongue.)

2023.03.31 09:12 seventhmoreno Arduino Code Structure
I need some advice on the best way to structure my code. Not sure what will be best as far as functions, loops and such.
So the idea is to first scan for an object, connect to object, send object info back continuously, if connection lost then repeat process.

2023.03.31 09:12 throwaway_thxu My only sister has social anxiety disorder. She's mean, rude, and selfish. It's ruining my life.
She's 27 going on 28 and has never had a job, doesn't shower, doesn't clean her room, doesn't go to the doctor, doesn't go to the dentist, and all she does is sit at the dining room table playing video games and listening to podcasts on geopolitics.
She's mean, too. She's rude. She spat in my face -- I almost moved out over this, my mother had to beg me to come back because she doesn't want the community to gossip about her. What's more, whenever she's angry she uses my past experiences with substance use against me even though I'm sober. Like she'll call me an alcoholic whenever she feels pissed. She has no friends. She doesn't have anything kind to say about anyone. She criticizes immigrants. She criticizes people who can't speak english. She criticizes her countrymen who come to Canada for asylum. I'm typing this and it's so wild to see when she herself is an immigrant.
I'm actually angry. She's squandered so much resources. Imagine being in a country where education is accessible and choosing to play video games instead. My sister was going to be an engineer -- she did two years and dropped out, which is the most selfish thing. It's year two that she hasn't been in class. It wouldn't even cross my mind to drop out -- if I didn't like the program, I'd change it. Especially now that all jobs require some type of post-secondary education. But she doesn't care. Like she doesn't give af about ANYONE. All she does is take and complain.
My mom is so disappointed and exhausted. Imagine having to remind your 27 year old daughter to shower and then getting yelled at. It's always 'I willllllllllll' and then she never does it.
Imagine being that 27 year old person having to be reminded to shower! I would be mortified.
I feel like I have to work extra hard for my mother to make up for my sister's bs. I'm doing my masters and working two jobs just to support our family. I always feel so hopeless and stressed. And there she is, waking up whenever and playing video games til whenever.
All of this under the guise of social anxiety disorder. What the fuck ever, dude. A lot of us struggle with anxiety and we still wake up and make things happen. It's so selfish. She doesn't even take her medication. I offer to pay for dentist appointments and she doesn't go. She waits for my mother to bring iced-coffees and meals for her. She has body odour -- I've brought her deodorant and she throws it back and calls me derogatory names.
I'm so tired. The house isn't fun to be in anymore. If she can spit in my face, she can do anything. I don't even feel safe or comfortable in my own house.

2023.03.31 09:12 Fit_Orange5293 Extreme unhealthy obsession
Extremely unhealthy obsession with someone- I am going to try to be as honest as possible for my sake this time. I would like to start off saying I have many mental illnesses making me struggle daily and I know this is not a normal thing for the average person, this is why I’m telling my story.
I’ve always looked up to this man, I’ve always been attracted to him and kind of liked the way he was so mean to me which made it more special when he wanted to speak to me. Sometimes he’d want nothing to do with me and I was okay with that, then sometimes he’d want to speak with me which felt like a big rush, like when you find out super super exciting news. We were never close and I was never super obsessed with him because I knew I could never get to the point of having him
Let’s go back to a year ago from now. Finally he shows actual interest in me, we start rambling about so many things that both him and I are very passionate about, he doesn’t want me to stop talking to him, we spoke for hours and hours giving me an insane rush. 3 days staying up all night talking to eachother. Him and I were both in a terrible mental state at that time and what was said and done shouldn’t have been. He tells me he thinks he likes me… or maybe loves, which was really confusing to him as he’s never felt this way for me. I spilled everything and told him I’ve always been attracted to him and that I really like him too.
I’m going to leave out some parts here so this isn’t easily identified as me.. sorry
Things happened and him and I weren’t able to talk for a bit, I obsessed over him. I would cry and throw up about how much I missed him- note that we didn’t even talk much before the whole “I like you” situation happened, I couldn’t sleep, I would drink every day, I was so sick and miserable in my life. I would write messages to him every single day or throughout the day and create notes as if I was speaking with him. I was disgustingly obsessed
I eventually convinced myself I’d never speak to him again and created a chat alone with his name and spoke to that as if he was dead. I would say how much I miss him and beg for him to come back, I would scream and cry begging for him to come back. It was horrible and disgusting
He comes back a couple months later and we try to catch up, I am still extremely obsessed with this man and sick to my stomach. I would stare at my phone waiting for a reply from him, I would set alarms for his schedule so I could speak to him, I tried my best not to show how strung up I was though. If he didn’t reply accordingly I would have panic attacks and feel like he hates me. Eventually It all built up and I was frustrated in the moment and I ended up blocking him on everything so I’d stop speaking to him, it hurt for a very long time afterwards but I eventually started thinking about him less and less. I recovered from this addiction.
3 days ago I had a dream about this man and he will not stop running through my head. I am so tired of this and I need help but the help isn’t helping. Please don’t comment if you’re going to call me crazy, I know. I’m diagnosed with many mental illnesses.

2023.03.31 09:11 prollyacat laptop ram problem?
I have an Acer Nitro 5 laptop and its screen started to flicker. It had those RGB lines across the screen. Earlier, I tried to rearrange the RAM (remove then put back again) and the flickering stopped.
Can the flickering be caused solely by RAM? Do I just need to upgrade? Thank uuu

There, a kick in the shins from one level 46 amoeba.
I’ve disabled adventure sync and turned off sponsor content. Just access Settings General
Join me and actually push back against the latest changes in a way that they have to listen too , because it hits them in their pocket if enough follow suit. They’re not listening to anything else.
