2023.06.07 04:05 Zesty_Musky_Muskrat Major Support Course Change and Petition...etc...
Well, I'll try to make this short but I'm just feeling defeated and unsure what to do. I'm a 3rd year micro major. My issue is with o-chem 2 (CHEM 217). For the microbio major, you're only required to take o-chem 1 and 2 (CHEM 216 and 217). I took o chem 1 (CHEM 216) last winter, had a terrible time with a teacher who did not teach (she drew out 2 mechanisms the entire quarter), and got a flat C. I then obviously went to take o chem 2 spring quarter 2022, but ended up doing a late drop of the class for mental health reasons. I'm currently in o chem 2 (CHEM 217) again. I don't know if I'm gonna pass (with a C-) it, and I just feel so defeated by the course, and it's not like I haven't studied. I'm just dumb and terrible at chemistry. I can't really do an emergency withdrawal for mental health reasons again for the same course, because I'm sure they won't buy that shit, even though my mental health is shit all the time and I do have suicidal thoughts quite frequently, along with severe OCD shit. I've taken and am taking all kinds of meds, etc. I don't want it to be an excuse but it won't make sense to them that I can do fine in other classes but just not this one because of mental health...
I was wondering if anyone has experience with major support course changing. The thing is, I already took biochem, and got a B. We have a choice in microbiology whether to take CHEM 369 (formerly chem 371--principles of biochem) or 314 (formerly chem 313, survey of biochem). You don't need chem 217 to take chem 314, which is what I took and passed fine. So, if I've taken o chem 1 and bio chem, why do I even need o chem 2? O chem 2 is only meant for my major to prepare you for biochem principles 369/371, as it is only a prerequisite for CHEM 369/371, NOT CHEM 313/314. Would it be possible to argue that I don't need to take CHEM 217 and could replace it with something else? I was thinking quantitative analysis or something like that as a replacement. I just hate it here at cal poly and want to be done. I can't do o chem, my mental health is shit, and I feel like I'm killing myself over a course I don't even need in the first place. I am studying, I still have a final in o chem 2 rn that is worth 40% of my grade next Thursday, but I don't know. I had an exam worth 20% of my grade today that I just felt terrible about and I'm already at like barely a 70% in the class.
Any advice or experiences would help. Thank you.

2023.06.07 02:48 Cockroach_Conscious How is this schedule as an incoming freshman for EECS
I'm an incoming freshman into EECS. For my first semester schedule, I have
- CS 61B
- PHYS 7B
- R&C B
Should I add another course to this schedule, such as EE 16A? I'm not sure how much work 61B and 7B are. Alternatively, I could also add a fresh/soph seminar or a DeCal course?
Also, what are some easy courses to fulfill the R&C B requirement?

2023.06.07 00:54 meg_megatron22 I’m at my breaking point.
The last 4-5 years every fall and every summer I have to buy new clothes because nothing fits. I have lost weight, then gained it all back multiple times. I’m so disappointed in myself and my lack of discipline.
I am going shopping again today. I get to a point where I consider really bad options for myself because I just don’t see any end to this. I do have PCOS so it definitely makes things a lot harder, but I’m working on balancing my hormones. Birth control made me gain 30 lbs in less than 5 months.
I’m at about 215 right now I think. I can’t look at a scale anymore I just can’t do it. I know I need to have around 1200 cal a day, and lessen carbs/sugars. I’ve started swimming since the outdoor pool is open now. And my newer job requires me on my feet more. Why am I just not losing any weight?? Because I have too many treats. I need to stop eating my emotions. I also have an unhealthy way with food because of my upbringing. But now I’m an adult, I have to fix this for myself.
Has anyone else been in this position? What helped them really, truly, get on track??

2023.06.07 00:11 califangus Cruel Systemic Dysfunctions
I'm in California and I've desperately needed psychiatric help for a decade, but can't get help. I specifically need a psychiatrist that can address non-SSRI depression medication and help with ADHD.
This is made more complicated due to a disability where I can't do phone or video calls.
Barrier 1: Medi-Cal is a false promise, impossible to find a psychiatrist that will take it.
Barrier 2: Medi-Cal subs to Beacon Health for coordinating, if you can call it that. Always a dead-end, they won't facilitate in-person visits and require all communication through phone. Won't do anything by email.
Barrier 3: County. I went to county mental help for any sort of assistance, but they won't do anything unless I become violent.
Barrier 4: I sold some assets to get on Blue Cross for a while, and even with that insurance I couldn't get help. The few psychiatrists in a two-hour commute radius either won't take new patients or require consultation by Zoom.
Barrier 5: Tried to use TDD (teleservices for the deaf, even though I'm not deaf, I have other issues). That doesn't work, so I feel sorry for deaf people in the same situation. There's a state service I signed up for that never worked. T-mobile is supposed to run a competing service, but they don't work either. The system never allocates an intermediary. Basically, all this person does is read what you type and speak it to someone else they call who is likely at a computer looking things up. Totally absurd to even have to attempt this when all people like me and the deaf need is for ANYONE at the place we're trying to interact with to use a computer. I'm guessing people won't learn how to type? I don't know.
Barrier 6: spastic overreaction to controlled substance abuse. I have a regular doctor I like who isn't allowed to prescribe mental health medications. Even if I found a psychologist that would let me meet in person, I suspect the metering will be so draconian other problems will emerge. This country is so cruel: getting so paranoid about some people abusing drugs, they deny them from those with legitimate needs. Ultimately with no options, this leads victims to seek the only source they can find on the black market, which is far more dangerous.
TAKEAWAY: The state of California, operating under the guise of progressive humanitarianism is in fact a dysfunctional tyrannical meritocracy of decision-makers who reign supreme, trusted and appointed only because of their pedigree, while being utterly clueless and isolated in silos completely separated from reality. Look at the boards of groups like Beacon Health. Even if you file a complaint, it goes nowhere, lost in the abyss of the gatekeepers who work under them.
END: I'm at a total loss with no hope. This is the society we've created. At a minimum, perhaps everyone should stop pretending anything works.

Hello, I got admitted to cal poly pomona and I am supposed to send in my official transcripts from community college to cal poly pomona by July 15, the deadline. The problem is that i sent in my transcript this week to cal poly and it it's supposed to say AD-T/ AS-T on my transcript which it doesn't because I sent the official transcript early and I wasn't awarded my degree. I wanted to know if thats going to affect my admissions if I send it again with my transcript indicating that I finished my degree and have the AD-T/AS-T. Thank you.

2023.06.06 21:21 Weak_Beginning3122 Heros are everywhere lol
Heros suck, they are very easily punishable and have no real good end board (pop dark law and negate or steal dpe) I run heros too but I would never be caught dead running a hero engine... especially with most people using a hero lives (very ashable and they scoop after or die next turn) or use Faris so they're locked into heros only and sure some heros are okay I'd say the only okay ones are dusktopia for slow play, dpe for pops and dark law for removing their second hand(gv) MAYBE dominance if you're one of those guys (leaving that there....) all of which can be pumped out using some other engine and then using your own mdm (Malic denier then Malic again after first link or fusion whatever) for bodies and using a fusion sub or something for dpe... and if you're lucky and get a mask change 2 then you can also get a floater in gv effect and get your own dark law (DOESNT REQUIRE HERO EVEN JUST A DARK MONSTER WITH A LEVEL LOWER THEN DARK LAW SOME HERO PLAYERS JUST DONT READ LMFAO) so like I just don't get why people are still running pure hero engines when even the new support will probably be good but still not used fully in pure heros just because heros are ass lmao, way too resource heavy with no good endboard unless lucky or god gamer, but alas I know why they all do it and it's because of tearlaments and the fact that you can super poly and make absolute zero to field wipe but even then most cards (including some heros even) get some good effects when sent to gv so idk why they'd think using a pop all enemy effects card would be good.... idk I just honestly start to feel bad after I absolutely shit on heros for like the 15th time that day and even end up using their own cards to beat them like 95% of the time where they scoop or just end up doing the afk till timer is out thing and just just annoying and I feel bad for them lmao
anyways long rant short
FREEHEROS they desperately need a new card like Faris that either doesn't lock them into heros or let's them go not minus 18 for 2 eh cards or else they're gonna keep getting shit on by not pure heros or just better decks lol (and not wake up that shit is absolute ass don't let others fool you lmao)

2023.06.06 20:30 SleepyAF100 Legal Logistics
Hello! I have questions regarding living together.
- I’m aware that polygamy isn’t a legal option but does common law partnership acknowledge poly groups or does it also limit to only 1 partner? I know some laws require you to be living together for at least a year to qualify for common law but how does this apply to polycules who nest together?
- Can you also have different common law partners in different countries or is it treated like marriage? Like for marriage, they usually require proof of non-marriage, how does it work for partners? For example, can you have A your common law partner in US while B is your common law partner in Canada?
I’m asking for purposes of buying property and having privileges to certain things such as life decisions and access to assets in case of emergency.
The only thing I can think of right now is some form of POA to grant rights to them. But I’d like to know other ways more experienced poly people navigate this.
Feel free to correct some of my assumptions as well. I’m curious about this. Thanks!

2023.06.06 19:43 WorldAwayTweedy I'm in my first semester at a prestigious university. Students keep dropping out of their classes.
I first noticed it in my 100-level Political Science class.
Week one, the class was absolutely packed. There was energy. Debate. Discussion.
Five weeks in, and now it looks like nearly half the class is gone.
Mind you, Professor Weldon was not only an exceptional lecturer who explained concepts with passion and great insight - he was also a very easy grader. It made no sense to me that people were transferring out of his class. A couple of stragglers dropping off once they realize that Poli Sci isn’t for them? Sure. But this was ridiculous.
It happened in my other 100-level classes too: four weeks in, and a little over 40% of the class transferred out of English 101. Psychology? A lecture hall of roughly 200 people had been reduced to 120 or so.
I brought it up to my friends on campus who were also in their first year.
“People dropping classes in their first few weeks is totally normal,” replied Dinesh. “If I saw you sitting there in one of my classes with that dumb expression on your face, I’d drop it immediately too.”
Ha-ha. Very funny.
I turned to Mallory. She just shrugged and said “I don’t know man,” and went back to reading her book.
I’d known both of them for close to five years now. While none of us were in the same program (Dinesh was a robotics geek, Mallory was obsessed with history), we’d all been very close since high school. We were outcasts who clung to each other over our shared love of D&D, video game music, and badminton. After weeks of nervousness hoping all of us would get admission to this university, we were thrilled to find out that we’d all made it - our little trio would get to continue.
“Guess I’m just overthinking things, then. Don’t know why this isn’t sitting well with me,” I responded to both of them.
As we continued hanging out in the mezzanine, I couldn’t shake the fact that the campus, as a whole, looked much emptier than usual for a Monday.
As usual, I showed up early for the Poli Sci lecture. Yes, I am a tryhard, and yes, it’s important to me that I’m as close to a model student as possible in this new chapter of my life.
I watched as students shuffled into class. I also paid attention to Professor Weldon’s pre-class demeanor. He was his usual chipper self.
I took the opportunity to go up to him and ask a quick question.
“Hey, Professor Weldon…”
“You can call me Michael!”
“Right, hey… Michael, so obviously, we’re only like five weeks into the class and it’s my first year so I’m new to this whole thing… just wanted to confirm it’s normal for students to transfer out of their classes in the first few weeks? I’ve noticed a really big drop off in all of my classes including this on–”
“Totally normal! I mean, students are still figuring out what their interests are and what their overall class workload needs to be, so this is all very standard stuff. Great question though!”
Well, alrighty then. I think I just needed to hear it from a professor. I started questioning why the whole drop-off thing was even bothering me in the first place. I turned to go back to my seat.
“Don’t ever ask that again, alright?”
I turned around. Did the prof just whisper what I thought he did?
He doubled down with a hushed response.
“I’m not gonna say anything about it, but a word of advice. For your own good, just listen to the material and study it. You really don’t wanna be asking people around here questions like that. Are we clear?”
All I could do was muster up a nod and walk back to my desk.
And with that, the lecture kicked off. As Professor Weldon discussed the various types of political systems around the world, I tried my best to forget the weird exchange I just had with him. To his credit, he defaulted to his regular sunny disposition throughout the presentation. I even answered a few questions he posed to the group, and he called on me as if nothing had even happened.
There were moments though, as I looked around the class, where I felt like I wasn’t alone in my… hypervigilance. Most of the students were tuned in or dozing off as usual, but I spotted a couple of faces who seemed… nervous? Like they were anxiously contemplating something?
In the midst of my surveying of the room, my eyes were drawn to a student sitting near me: a student who I remembered being quite outspoken in earlier weeks of the class, but who now seemed very reserved. From my vantage point, I could make out some of the notes he was scribbling in his notebook:
Follow up Q’s for the Dean:
- Has my drop out request been approved?
- Am I allowed to tell my family?
- Why are only some students notified about this?
- Does it emerge from Williams Hall?
As you can probably tell, these questions had absolutely nothing to do with the class.
I wrote them down in my journal. It was time to do some research.
After class, I invited Dinesh and Mallory to my (unfortunately) tiny dorm room for an evening conversation about everything that happened today.
While I waited for them to arrive, I spent my time doing online research to see if I could uncover anything that would shed light on the happenings - looking up things like “dropoff rates increasing” or “odd occurrences” at my university. I unfortunately wasn’t able to uncover much of anything - everything online was very boilerplate and sanitized.
The note - “Does it emerge from Williams Hall?” - from class earlier was the only thing that led to something of moderate substance. After searching through our school intranet, I realized that Williams Hall had been more or less designated as “off limits” for a number of years now. Outside of being the location of some of our final exams and student body meetings, the building had been cordoned off so that construction and renovations could be completed there.
Strangely enough, my research also showed me that prior to Williams Hall being sequestered, it used to be the hub for our Faculty of Arts, and was the former homebase for a lot of our major university clubs (theater, debate). These classes and clubs had all been moved into other buildings at the university over the last fifteen years or so.
As I continued digging, Dinesh arrived.
“Hey cuckoo bird,” he said as he came in. Before I could cut him off and tell him that this was kind of serious, he continued–
“So, uh, something happened actually and… maybe you’re not totally completely nuts.”
“Okay…,” I responded.
“So, we’re in week five right? Up until last week, my robotics class was basically at capacity - one or two stragglers dropped off in the first few weeks, but we were more or less a full group. Today, I shit you not, half the class was missing. I asked the prof, and he said they dropped out, and then he just changed the subject. I looked into it, and if you drop a class after week three, you’re required to pay a full refund. Why the fuck would anyone drop a class this late?”
I nodded. “It’s not just dropping classes and switching into other ones. I think it’s–”
“People dropping out of the university altogether,” Dinesh said, cutting me off. “Feels like there’s… less people in general now, at the campus.”
A rush of anxiety hit me as I realized that Mallory hadn’t responded to any of my texts today. I shook it off.
“So… something really weird happened in Poli Sci class today.”
I filled Dinesh in on everything. He was a bit incredulous, and didn’t totally believe the exchange I had with the instructor (his interpretation being that Professor Weldon was simply offended I was pointing out that people were dropping his class).
Nonetheless, he helped me with my research.
We scoured the web, searching up old Reddit posts, blog posts, discussion board conversations - anything at all that mentioned Williams Hall or bizarre events at the university. Aside from jaded former students calling out the difficult grading scale here, everything we came across was useless. But, we did notice a suspicious trend…
The year 2008 was very interesting for the school… in that there was no record of anything happening here that year. No campus events that took place here (or events that were hosted at the university in general, for that matter), no sports records, no graduation records, the list goes on. Nothing. Were there any professors that taught here in the year 2008? Not that we could find. A 2008 yearbook? Nope.
Dinesh and I went deeper and deeper down our rabbit hole, as I tried to push aside concerned thoughts of still not hearing back from Mallory. Dinesh mentioned that we should hone in on the year 2008 and try to use the Wayback Machine, in case that could help us find anything that might’ve been archived or deleted since. It took a little while, but we were able to dig up an old message board conversation, which I’ll share below.
Thread: So are we going to talk about that?
Title says all… June 7 at Williams Hall. won’t say more at risk of exposing myself, but I know there are lots of others who go to this school or went here, and were there when it happened. Why the actual fuck is no one talking about this?!?
This some Skull & Bones Society shit? :)
Yep. Count your blessings and stfu. Nothing more you can do. Remember what they said happens if you blab about it.
that no one has called the cops in this whole fucking time is insane.
also I swear to god they told some kids to get out of dodge before it happened. Knew a bunch of ppl who pced out a few weeks before. linguistics class with a certain hot professor was emptyyyyyyyy. No one else had a clue…
btw: Have any proof you were actually there? Also wtf is reality? Like that actually happened.
I’m sure people tried to call the cops.
I was the only guy that crawled to the door when it was all over. Apparently the rest of you just stood up and walked out. Maybe different reactions to shock for all of us?
heard about this through a friend, friend knew a guy who went there and said something really messed up was happening there and that the rumor mill was in full swing, like the *final exam* wasn’t normal, he tried to drop out but they wouldn’t let him(?), but left nyways. Apparently they found his body later.
I never believed him tho lol my friend says shit a lot of dumb shit when he’s blazing >_>
Thread locked due to inappropriate content.
We also found two other threads on a different message board, both created by the same person in 2008. The posts didn’t mention Williams Hall or the university explicitly, but they did mention the June 8th date. The post was of a mother claiming that her daughter randomly disappeared after going to the campus one day. The mother detailed how she didn’t buy the official story she was told by the police that her daughter simply “ran away”. She said that she was speaking with other parents in the area who were dealing with the same situation, and that she would provide updates as they came. Both threads were locked soon after posting.
As I jotted down the recurring date that was coming up in these threads (June 8th, 2008), I heard the door open.
Dinesh and I exhaled as Mallory entered. But that relief washed away quickly - something was off. Mallory was not herself. She’s always been quiet and reserved, preferring to be 'near people but not participating', but this time felt different.
We slowly started filling her in, trying to find a way to make our disconnected musings make sense. She listened as we talked about the student drop-offs in our classes and the overall campus feeling more empty, the peculiar goings-on in my Poli Sci class earlier in the day, and the archived message board posts we discovered during our online research. As we detailed our findings, we realized that we both sounded a little crazy… all of these things were, ultimately, random occurrences that we were stitching together like some sort of conspiracy theory.
But then Mallory spoke up.
“I had a meeting with the Dean earlier today. I’m going to drop out.”
The hours after Mallory said that were stressful. Obviously, Dinesh and I were shocked, confused, and most of all, deathly curious on what spurred this on for her.
Frustratingly, she wasn’t giving us too many details.
She asked us if the Dean had organized a meeting with either of us earlier in the week. When we both said no, she looked really, really miserable. Her reaction only added to our confusion.
We asked her if her reasons for dropping out were similar to what we were researching, and she begrudgingly said yes. When we asked her to elaborate, she said she was sworn to secrecy and couldn’t speak further.
“Why can’t you tell us what’s going on?!” I asked her, for probably the 30th time in our back-and-forth.
“I just can’t. If I say anything more…”
Her eyes trailed off, as if suggesting there was some terrible fate that would befall her if she elaborated further. Most of her answers to our following questions were just a simple “I’m sorry.”
Our one-sided conversation with Mallory continued for quite some time. Eventually, Dinesh asked the question that was lingering at the back of my mind. A question that seemed utterly ridiculous but also very necessary.
“Do you… do you think we should drop out too, maybe?”
It took a while for Mallory to respond. She chose her words carefully.
“I guess it’s random,” she started. “It’s random… which students they explain this whole thing to, and which ones they don’t. If they call upon you, you’re given the option to drop out. But if the Dean didn’t meet with you…”
“What the fuck does that even mean?!” Dinesh responded.
“It… means that I don’t think they’ll approve it. Even if you want to leave.”
Dinesh turned to me with a look of bafflement.
“I mean… we could just, like, leave though, right? Like… physically get up and leave? Like, how could they actually stop us from doing that?”
I saw Mallory’s eyes widen as Dinesh spoke those words to me. I knew that she wanted to say so much more to us, but she just couldn’t. The look in her eyes made it clear to me - us running now would be a mistake.
We struggled to get anything more out of Mallory. Eventually, I jumped in with a softball question that I prayed she’d answer. Referring to the research we were doing, I asked her plainly –
“If Dinesh and I keep digging, do you think we’ll be able to figure out what’s going on?”
She paused for a moment, and then nodded.
And that was all I needed.
“I think it’s time we go on an adventure, Dinesh,” I said.
“Goddamnit,” was his reply.
As we all left my dorm room, the three of us reluctantly gave each other a group hug. We’re not the mushy, touchy-feely types, so this was the first time we’d ever done anything this sentimental. It was awkward and not great, but everything felt too serious for us to not do it. As we let go of each other, I saw the first tears I’d ever seen Mallory cry.
“I”m really sorry I can’t say more. I’m really, really sorry,” she said. All good, Mal.
And with that, Dinesh and I headed out on a nighttime trek towards a certain building.
We made our way through the nearly pitch-black, empty courtyard, towards a bunch of construction signs and scaffolding that suggested we were getting closer and closer to Williams Hall. Dinesh, continuing his research on his phone, was chiming in with some “fun facts” –
“This building’s been under construction for like over a decade… how?”
“It’s probably just an excuse,” I responded.
Past a collection of tools and barriers, we arrived at a side door to the building. To my surprise, it wasn’t locked.
We entered, using our cell-phone flashlights to maneuver through the dark. Past the scent of old wood and peeling wallpaper, in a hallway that I can best describe as “rickety”, a word that I’m aware doesn’t make sense in this context but is the only one that comes to mind -
We arrived at the foyer. The ceiling stretched high above us. We maneuvered around a wet spot on the floor reflecting back at us (probably a leaky pipe somewhere) as our phone lights illuminated the dusty engraving above us that read Faculty of Arts.
“Which way do you think we should head?” I asked as our lights spun around the room, taking in every inch of the once-bustling building. The beam from my cell phone cut through the air, creating a glow that illuminated relics around us: various seating areas that seemed carelessly assembled, abstract art installations that were now covered in grime, and a collection of aged plaques adorning the walls, preserving the wide smiles of professors and administrators of years past.
A sign off in the distance that read Final Exam Room caught my attention. I motioned to Dinesh and he followed.
With our footsteps across the marble floor of yet another hallway that had seen better days, we approached our destination. Along the way, we encountered empty classrooms on both sides of the large corridor. Our brief peeks into all of the rooms revealed perfect preservation and consistency: desks and chairs neatly arranged, and the boards in each room having only one simple message written on them:
REMINDER: FINAL EXAM - JUNE 8TH
“Does every class do their final exam on the same day?” I asked Dinesh.
He didn’t reply. He was drawn to the large doors at the end of the hallway. I flashed my light at the engraving above them -
FINAL EXAM ROOM / STUDENT BODY MEETING ROOM
Huh. Weird combination if ever I’d seen one.
“I feel like coming here was beyond stupid,” Dinesh said.
“Yep. But we’re here now.”
Dinesh shined his phone light on a small sign posted up beside the doors.
Final Exam Room
Most Recent: June 8, 2008
Next Exam: June 8, 2023
Don’t forget to study!!!
We froze up. The obvious question for both of us was why a seemingly abandoned and under-construction building would have a note about an upcoming final exam scheduled for just a few days from now… an exam taking place only half-way through the semester, mind you.
“Do we go in?” Dinesh asked.
I wasn’t voted “most inquisitive” in high school superlatives… because it wasn’t a category. If it was, I would’ve secured it, no competition. This whole thing had been nagging at me from the first couple of weeks. I needed to know what was going on.
“Yes. We go in.”
We opened the doors, revealing a large room with hundreds of desks, all perfectly spaced out from each other. It was an exam, after all.
The hall stretched far and long. As we inched our way in, a pungent smell flooded my senses - like nothing I’d ever experienced before.
I pointed my phone light from desk to desk as I walked on by, realizing why the abandoned room felt so “lively” to me from the second we opened the door.
Nearly all of the desks were occupied by the headless and decayed bodies of students seated upright. Hands on the table. Coats on the chair behind them. Bags under desks.
Before the shock of the sight could overtake us and force us to get the fuck out of there, the sound of footsteps from the other end of the large exam hall caused us to redirect our phone lights to the source of the sound.
A figure emerged from the shadows, dressed in attire that was unmistakably formal. His hands were clasped behind him, a posture of composure and control. A face that I hadn’t seen since my first week orientation. The Dean?
He addressed us.
“Gentlemen - the exam isn’t for a few days now. I suggest you get back to studying.”

NPO AEG VSK 94 w 9a-91 kit
Pics: https://imgur.com/a/fQKSUhB Sales overview: https://youtu.be/ypG28woLCXg New never fielded NPO AEG VSK94 all stock, Includes the gun, Upgraded lightweight suppressor, 4 additional midcap mags (for a total of 5), conversion parts if you wanted to convert it to the 9a-91 (grip, upper reciever w folding stock, outer barrel, inner barrel, and barrel nut if running it without supressor and original manuals and documentation. This is a beautiful odd gun that is absolutely built like a tank all steel receiver with a hard phosphate coat same as the real deal. the VSK94 historically is/was used by the spetsnaz, fsb count4er terrorism units and other russian special forces as a 9x39 subsonic DMR as a easier to manufacture alternative to the likes of VSS. The 9A-91 primarily has seen use with Russian police forces. It is used as a cheaper and more versatile alternative to the SR-3M Vikhr I did a video look at this gun in detail here: https://youtu.be/6Aop8yqT5Gc . Gun was shipped in parts from russia, so no original box, I assembled it and went over install and reviewed it as i went. I did also examine the gearbox as well while it was out of the gun. You can find a internal review here: https://youtu.be/7uyfZ__9r3Q Asking $875 Obo for everything
KWA RM4 ERG Magpul edition
Sales Overview: https://youtu.be/7AS_XO12oX4
This gun is used I have fielded it a few times but pretty low milage (i tend to collect more than I play).
Package include, Gun, 1x 30 rnd mag w/cutoff, 6x K120c's with cutoff, Leapers red/green dot, magpul backup rear iron sight, and original spring/recoil weight.
- cleaned regreased re shimmed,
- AOE and airseal work
- new bearing piston head
- oring aluminum air snozzle
- High torque neo motor.
- basic mosfet install with self resetting fuse
- Prommy 6.03mm tightbore barrel
- the Ulysses recoil system for KWA ERG's (this is only available in Korea and took some doing to get here) this is adjustable system that lets you go from about a m90 to about m110 in power while safely increasing the felt recoil, I have heard others comment its close ish to 9mm in terms of recoil by far the most you will get out of a electronic recoil system but its still a little weird as it technically recoils forward.
This gun is a blast to use, but it really wasnt getting the feild time from me over my other replicas so decided to sell it. Its a great PTW or "realistic" training type of weapon due to functioning bolt cutoff and that all mags can be locked to a realistic 30 rounds if desired, disabling the trigger after the last round fired and requiring you to hit the bolt release after changing a mag before you can fire again (note its not a GBBR the bolt doesn't actually blow back)
Asking $550 OBO

Golden Eagle GBBR NIB https://imgur.com/a/Eya0qn6
Selling this never been gassed or fired can be tested or chono'd on request. The GE GBBR system is a WA clone this means you can use WA upgrade parts (Which basically means GHK parts as they also run on the WA system). The receiver is Polymer but the hand guard and barrel are metal. The handguard is what they call the delta style which is sort of this interesting almost triangular shape see pics. From what I have heard these may not be the most amazing GBBR but are a fair base/entry into the GBBR world without breaking the bank with reasonable aftermarket part support.

Was originally a tan stock used as a dye test for dying the nylon fiber a camo pattern and masking techniques. Then later was modified and material removed to test fitment of a CO2 reg into the stock. you still should be able to lock-on the stock plate or the spacers but you will be missing several of the latching or locking teeth on the sides.

2023.06.06 19:05 throwaway123454321 Am I being unreasonable about requiring a seller to remove 30 year old Poly-B pipes?
We put in an offer on a home in the Rocky Mountains. House was built in early 90 with Polybutylene piping. The sellers reportedly replaced “most of it including the central manifold.” He reports 40% of the pipes is still poly-B. That means 40% of the original pipes are 30 year old polybutylene. The house is listed for over $850k. For a house at this price, I will not accept any poly-B pipes.
Supposedly the owner runs a plumbing company and thinks it’s a ridiculous ask to replace these pipes, telling us they’ve never had a problems in the 10 yrs they’ve lived there. I find this disingenuous if true. He basically said “just buy a home warranty and replace it when it bursts.”
Am I being unreasonable?

2023.06.06 18:23 DDSKM FR265 Not Registering Effects of Weight Sessions?
For context, I’ve been bodybuilding for 14 years and as a result am heavily focused toward anaerobic training, with the odd zone 2-4 run or cycle thrown in once or twice a week. (I’m aware this watch isn’t necessarily an appropriate fit for me).
I got my FR265 a week ago and love every aspect of it, aside from that it doesn’t seem to register any training effect after training certain muscle groups (arms / back), but has no issue with others (chest / shoulders / legs).
Just finished a monster back session, and went to look at the stats and saw 0.0 anaerobic load, requiring a 0 hour recovery time, even though it estimated ~350 cals had been burned. Friday (arms) was the exact same, other than an estimate of ~550 cals.
I know the watches aren’t designed for resistance training, and anyone who is really serious about HR and performance should use a chest strap; but is this something that I’m doing wrong, or is it common place?
As someone who has never had any fitness tracking devices but have tried, and vehemently despise my girlfriend’s AW8, I think Garmin have nailed everything in terms of functionality, usability and aesthetics, but if data is inaccurate, it’s worth less than no data at all!

2023.06.06 18:02 LIS1050010 Guide: Create a Wildfire Action Plan
CREATE A WILDFIRE ACTION PLAN
Your Wildfire Action Plan must be prepared, and familiar to all members of your household well in advance of a wildfire. Use the checklist below to help create your plan. Each family’s plan will be different, depending on a variety of issues, needs, and situations.
Your Wildfire Action Plan Checklist
Create an evacuation plan that includes:
- A designated emergency meeting location outside the fire or hazard area. This is critical to determine who has safely evacuated from the affected area.
- Several different escape routes from your home and community. Practice these often so everyone in your family is familiar in case of emergency.
- Have an evacuation plan for pets and large animals such as horses and other livestock.
- A Family Communication Plan that designates an out-of-area friend or relative as a point of contact to act as a single source of communication among family members in case of separation. (It is easier to call or message one person and let them contact others than to try and call everyone when phone, cell, and internet systems can be overloaded or limited during a disaster.)
- Have fire extinguishers on hand and train your family how to use them (check expiration dates regularly).
- Ensure that your family knows where your gas, electric, and water main shut-off controls are located and how to safely shut them down in an emergency.
- Assemble an Emergency Supply Kit for each person, as recommended by the American Red Cross. (See next section for details.)
- Maintain a list of emergency contact numbers posted near your phone and in your emergency supply kit.
- Keep an extra Emergency Supply Kit in your car in case you cannot get to your home because of fire or other emergency.
- Have a portable radio or scanner so you can stay updated on the fire.
- Tell your neighbors about Ready, Set, Go! and your Wildfire Action Plan.
THE SIX P’S REMEMBER THE SIX “P’S” Keep These Six “P’s” Ready In Case Immediate Evacuation Is Required:
- People and pets
- Papers, phone numbers, and important documents
- Prescriptions, vitamins, and eyeglasses
- Pictures and irreplaceable memorabilia
- Personal computer hard drive and disks
- “Plastic” (credit cards, ATM cards) and cash

2023.06.06 17:18 Green-Chocolate-7870 ISO Cool Middle Aged Dad Friends
I'm a 40s tech dad and newish transplant to SoCal (<1yr) near Great Oak High School, and finally settled in enough to make time for new friendships around healthy pastimes/hobbies. My wife recently started working full-time, and my 3 kids (ages 10-17) need a bit less of me, so I'm looking to create new connections outside of my family. I would love to join or create an inclusive community or just meet some local folks outside the home and socialize/hang once a week or so. Things we might connect about:
- Making/listening to music (alternative, indie, post-hipster)
- Making things (3d printing, soldering guitar pedals/synths)
- Technology (I work in SaaS/Cloud)
- Movement (road biking, weight lifting, hiking, yoga)
The only hard requirement is to follow the Wheaton Law ("Don't be a dick"). I've been WFH since before the pandemic - I need to get out. Let's do something cool!
