2023.06.01 07:07 UncommonPhoenix Anybody seen plans for a single/narrower bed?

Everything I see tends to be a double or queen bed. I'm tall (5'10), but I tend to stick to one side of the bed. I'm not super thrilled about a bed running the long side of the van, I'd like a fixed bed due to health issues that cause exhaustion. I want a van I can stand and sit in. I like outdoors and having windows open, but I am a bit of a homebody and need to be inside during certain times of the day. Thoughts on something that would work?

2023.06.01 06:42 tdpCA Misty is the big bad.

Misty is a serial killer. She is lying about being surprised to find Lottie. She kept tabs on everyone. She says she didn’t keep tabs on Lottie but that’s a lie. She not only knows where Lottie is she’s working for her. She calls her Charlotte not Lottie when she kicks Walter to the curb. She has been Lottie’s handmaiden since the very beginning. She may not have visited the compound before but she’s in contact with Lottie. The police came very quickly to Travis house to arrest them for breaking and entering. A remote hermit cabin specifically intended to be where no one goes. Misty called the police. Misty found a way to go with Nat to Travis house to be sure that would not find anything Lottie didn’t want her to see. Police came quickly to the Travis hanging as well. Lottie may have called that one not Misty but it limited their time there. Lottie was watching Nat. Lottie was watching Travis. Misty and therefore Lottie knew where Van was. Tai tried to help Nat and Lottie knew it. Misty is a devious dangerous thug for Lottie. She will die last and Walter will kill her. As he dies.

2023.06.01 06:38 weirdthingsarecool91 Anime movie, German sounding name

I am having trouble remembering the name of an anime movie that I have seen several times a long time ago.
The main premise (if I remember correctly) is about a guy that fights supernatural creatures with the help of his mech style suit that he carries with him in what is essentially a van. He has a helper girl that I remember wearing a mask that has 4 eyes (or maybe she even had 4 eyes). I remember a big battle in a building and the creature is basically expanding throughout the building. It's a gory scene. The protagonist dons his suit and fires what is essentially magical ammunition to take it apart.
I hope my rambling helps. Please help me.

2023.06.01 06:36 MadebyMike5 Rivian Service Frustrations

Color me frustrated with Rivian Service right now. Back in February, I scheduled an appointment with rivian Service for a recurring wind noise issue. They were backed up, so my appointment was set up for May 19th at 8 am for the wind noise, a couple recalls, and service bulletin items.
On May 19th, I took the morning off, drove 1.5 hours to the service center, dropped off my R1T, and got a 2 week rental. I've been watching the app to see if any of my service items have been completed and nothing has changed. I checked the location of my R1T a couple of times and could see it was still in the parking lot. After 10 days, I finally contacted my guide to see if she could get me some info.
Well, they called me last night, 12 days since I dropped it off, and the update was, "Good news, we've pulled your truck into the shop, and we're getting to work. We should be able to meet the ETA of June 14th." WHAT?!? So my truck will be with them for nearly a month...
Why in the heck did I have an appointment, and why was the drop off at a specific time? I took time off of work with the expectation that an appointment meant that I was up next. I could have just as easily dropped the truck off on a weekend, not during rush hour traffic. To say I'm frustrated is an understatement.
Anyone else with a similar experience?

2023.06.01 06:21 Fainman128 Battery Danger - Update 2 on 31 May 2023

Battery Danger - Update 2 on 31 May 2023
This is an update (hopefully the last update!) in regard to the "Battery Danger" message I experienced. Here are the prior posts:
Original Post on 10 May 2023
Update 1 on 15 May 2023
I now have the car back with a new battery. The EV Concierge is reimbursing my fuel expenses while I had the rental car (which was also taken care of).
Potentially helpful background:
I traveled out of state to find & buy the Bolt EUV (with S&S and SC). I purchased the car in Feb 2023 and DCFC'd it 4 times on the drive home immediately after purchase. Since I've been home, I charged up to 80% nightly with the 32A / 240V charger that came with the car.
When this event occurred, I still had about 140 miles remaining even though the picture shows "Low".
What I learned when I picked up the car:
The car was towed in, horn still going off, on 10 May 2023. The tech disconnected the negative on the battery to get it to stop and parked the car in the far corner of the lot. The next day, Thursday 11 May 2023, the tech saw error code P0BBD (Hybrid Battery Pack Voltage Variation Exceeded Limit).
Apparently what happened here is the battery has contactors and all of those disengaged as a safety mechanism when the car saw this code. The horn goes off - possibly with the hope of draining the 12V battery if no one is around. If this were to happen while driving, the assumption is you'd still get the notice and you'd slowly lose propulsion power - so you'd have enough time to pull over and gtfo.
Anyway - the tech followed diagnostics and a bulletin had him contact Technical Assistance Center (TAC) for further direction. TAC had him put together a report and scheduled the local field engineer to come out ASAP which ended up being Monday morning. The field engineer had a device that plugged into the engineering port (on passenger side) to stream data to engineers in Detroit. It was then decided a battery replacement would be the resolution and the bad battery would be carefully packaged, crated, and sent to LG.
When the new battery was installed, the coolant was also replaced and the battery was programmed remotely by the engineers in Detroit (I think).
The tech also put the car on their DCFC which performs an isolation test and rebalances cells. He said it's free to use and it wouldn't hurt to do it monthly (the battery doesn't need to be at a certain level - just needs room to charge).
Let's get nerdy:
I got a copy of the diagnostic report it showed the following:
  • Battery 1 & 8 @ 3.80V
  • Battery 9 @ 3.85V
  • The rest of the 32 batteries were at either 3.82V or 3.83V
He pointed out battery 9 as the outlier and said especially since it's in the middle of the pack so it's not near anything that would cause the increase in voltage.
I looked up how thermal runaway happens here are 3 possibilities:
  • Overcharging: Charging a lithium-ion battery beyond its recommended voltage limit can cause the deposition of metallic lithium on the anode. This can create microscopic metal dendrites or "whiskers" that can penetrate the separator between the electrodes, causing an internal short circuit and leading to thermal runaway.
  • Overdischarging: Discharging a lithium-ion battery below its recommended voltage limit can also lead to thermal runaway. Overdischarge causes the formation of copper or other metallic deposits on the cathode, which can cause internal short circuits upon subsequent charging.
  • Elevated temperatures: Lithium-ion batteries are sensitive to high temperatures. Exposure to elevated ambient temperatures, excessive heat generated during charging or discharging, or external heat sources can increase the internal temperature of the battery. If the heat generated exceeds the battery's ability to dissipate it, a thermal runaway reaction can occur.
    • This can happen on batteries with higher voltages because they will discharge faster (more watts / more heat) compared to the other batteries.
One of the key reactions that can occur during thermal runaway is the breakdown of the electrolyte. The electrolyte in a lithium-ion battery is typically a flammable organic solvent that contains lithium salts. When the battery undergoes thermal runaway, the high temperature can cause the electrolyte to decompose or vaporize, releasing flammable gases such as ethylene and propylene. These gases can further contribute to the heat buildup and increase the severity of the thermal runaway event.
As the temperature continues to rise, the decomposition of the electrolyte and other active materials in the battery can accelerate. For example, the breakdown of the cathode material, which often includes a nickel-based compound, can release oxygen. Oxygen can react with other battery components, such as the electrolyte or the graphite anode, resulting in additional heat generation and the production of more flammable gases.
The release of flammable gases, combined with the high temperature, can create a self-sustaining chain reaction within the battery. The heat generated by the exothermic reactions can further accelerate the decomposition of the electrolyte and other materials, releasing more gases and causing a feedback loop. This feedback loop leads to an increase in temperature, pressure, and the release of additional flammable gases, exacerbating the severity of the thermal runaway event.
In closing:
I learned a lot and ordered an OBD reader from Amazon.
The tech informed me if I were to try to change my own 12V battery whenever it needs it, there are some contactors that disengage and make a noise when the negative side is disconnected (always remove the negative side first). When putting in the new battery, if the contactors don't re-engage, you may need to have it towed in.

2023.06.01 06:12 ThatAction27 30M - Anyone with like interests Nvan

This is my first time posting something like this but I thought I'd put it out there to see who I might meet. I want to see if anyone, guys or girls might have similar interests and go from there. I'm 30M in North Van so preference would be on others nearby. I don't smoke but I do drink occasionally. I'm more on the introverted side so it takes me time to get comfortable with people but I do have a sense of humour once that happens (I think).
My main interests are sports (watching and playing), hard rock and metal music, reading, travel, gaming. I also like the outdoors and want to get more out there whether that be trying different outdoor activities or doing team sports of some sort. I'm also open to trying new things.
Anyway if you have some similar interests or just want to chat, hit me up. Don't know if anything will come of this but even just chatting is cool.

2023.06.01 06:00 Analypiss Respect Juggernaut! (Marvel, 616)

Respect Juggernaut

This won’t hurt me! Nothing can!
Cain Marko was the son of nuclear scientist Kurt Marko, who worked in Alamogordo, New Mexico with Brian Xavier. After Brian died in a lab accident, Kurt married Brian’s widow Sharon for her family’s money, resulting in Cain becoming the stepbrother of the Xavier’s son Charles, the eventual founder of the X-Men. Kurt proved to be an abusive father to both Cain and Charles, which combined with Cain’s jealousy over his brother’s telepathy, fostered a lasting resentment between the two of them. After Kurt died saving them from another lab accident, Charles and Cain would end up serving with the army together in Korea. During their service, Cain would stumble across a cave that had a temple dedicated to the powerful mystic being known as Cyttorak. Touching a crimson gem at the heart of the temple, Cain was transformed into Cyttorak’s avatar on Earth, an unstoppable human Juggernaut. Shortly after, the cave collapsed, with Xavier barely managing to escape. Years later Cain would dig his way out and seek revenge on Charles for the perceived slights he had inflicted upon him. In doing so, Cain would come into conflict with the X-Men, Hulk, Spider-Man, Thor, Doctor Strange, and many other superheroes before eventually burying the hatchet with his brother. However, despite joining the X-Men and later Thunderbolts, Cain would return to being a villain each time. Throughout his life and various goals and motivations, only one constant has remained for Cain Marko. No matter the obstacle, he will never stop.

2023.06.01 05:58 Adept_Historian_7175 No S3 Spoilers - Just a big, long-winded Thank You to the creators, the actors, and this community

Ted Lasso is the only show my 16 year old son and I watch together. It has given us so many opportunities to talk about Big Ideas and unexpected things. It’s the one show that makes me laugh, cry, and laugh/cry during a single episode. It is the one show my son and I can bond over. Any parent of a teen will agree this is kind of a big deal. We have already agreed to a rewatch. I’m thrilled.
Wednesday nights are sacred in our home because it is Ted Lasso Night. Sometimes we laugh together. Sometimes we cringe together. Often we all pretend that no one is crying together. Strong feelings are had about who deserves a shot at Keeley, appropriate comeuppance for Rupert, if Ted should stay in England, and whether Rebecca should end up with [choose your person]. I said Boat Guy I know I’m right. No one debates whether Sam deserves all the goodness, if Van Damme is the best name ever (it is), if Dani Rojas is the most beloved television character of all time (Football is life!), or if Bumbercatch is an absolute sleeper (deeply underrated dialogue). We never question Colin’s choices (so proud of the lad), McAdoo’s leadership, or if Richard is the most prolific lover at all of Richmond (duh, and sign me up). These things are givens. Oh wait - one more…Will is an angel sent from heaven to watch over this club. His only job was to make sure they became great men and women. He succeeded. Will saved the universe by being Richmond’s kit man. He earned his wings, and I will die on that hill.
And still, I haven’t addressed my favorite people: Higgins, Coach Beard, Roy Kent, Trent Crimm (the Independent), Jamie Tartt, Sassy and Nathan Shelley. Seriously - how often can a person rattle off TWELVE IMPORTANT CHARACTERS before they get to the ones they give a genuine shit about? Thank you. Writers - May your strike be impactful and valuable. May inspiration strike often and may your ideas be lucrative. You deserve to be paid fairly for your talents. I’m more than happy to wait till the powers that be agree to that.
This is my comfort show. I’ll rewatch many times. If anyone involved in the creation of this beautiful beast reads this - Thank You. What you have created is important and it is treasured. I appreciate ya. Im not sure you can comprehend just how much.
p.s. Someone please publish a list of books read and referenced in this series. I want to know where the writers got their inspiration from.

2023.06.01 05:56 Remarkable-Being-249 most annoying trip of my life

I did 2g of mushrooms with a friend recently, I have done them before and at a little higher dose, about 2.5g. It was their birthday, I went by the store to get some snacks for after the trip, spent about $50 on goodies, arrived at the location we were going to trip, a house where they were house sitting near some trails. We ate the mushrooms, went for a walk, and at first had fun.
We sat by a river and were in our own worlds, then I looked up and they were crying. It happens of course, I didn't ask about it. They seemed to want to be in it. Then, we walked and they kept recording voice notes, putting their phone in my face to sing or say something, I didn't have the same urges they had but couldn't seem to bring myself to say anything to them about it. It was their birthday and I was trying to be the best friend I could be. I won't get too much into their personal issues, but they admitted to me they were a master manipulator (which I've picked up on over the years and have set some boundaries around them) and spent their birthday upset and crying about a person they claimed to be in love with and from what I know, that person was never interested in them. When the person made that clear to them, my friend spent days upset at how much this person hurt them. I don't know the full story but I do know this person and there is a pattern with this.
We returned to the house and I was getting hungry, snacking at the kitchen counter. Soon after, my friend announces the person who they are house sitting for will be returning soon. At this, I wasn't surprised, it's pretty on par for the chaos they create in their wake. However, I knew I didn't want to drive anywhere and made it clear I would not drive or be a passenger in their vehicle - they are not a good driver. They left to bring their dog home and said they would come back. I sat in my car, not tripping hard, but still with the mushroom effects going on, it had only been about 3 hours and my pupils were still big. I decided to walk around, with finally a moment to myself, and was soon harassed by a man driving in a van. I quickly went back to my car to sit.
My friend returned and we sat in a parking lot together. After a couple hours, we went back to her place a few mins away. She spent the rest of the evening mad at the world, claiming life was mean to her. All of this really bothered me. I just observed, it became more and more clear to me that this person has some toxic levels I don't want to be around. I dedicated my entire day to them, spent my time and money being there for them, and they spent the day obsessed with the idea of a relationship with a person who was never into them. I kept thinking, I'm sitting right here, offering love and abundance and they couldn't see me. I felt hurt but never submitted to the chaos, instead I learned a valuable lesson and now know I need to put more distance in our friendship. They sucked the life out of me that day. The next day I was exhausted and had a terrible headache.
I should have known better, it was not a positive experience for me. Next time my plan is to sit on my porch and look at the sky.

2023.06.01 05:34 Kendalf Analysis of the Mullen Van EMM Test Data

Analysis of the Mullen Van EMM Test Data
TL;DR: Inconsistent test procedures, incomplete details, and results that are incompatible with previously stated results make it impossible to draw any solid conclusions from the data
We finally have some more data on Hardge’s EMM device than the bits and fragments that have been found previously. Kudos to Cal for acquiring it from Hardge and sharing it publicly. Here’s my analysis of what has been shared. As usual, this is long, because the details matter.
The data shows dyno runs from two different days, the first on Jan. 5 (Run A) and the second on Jan. 20 (Run B). While there is nothing in the data itself that labels the runs such, it seems that we are supposed to assume that Run A shows the Mullen 1 cargo van without an EMM installed, while Run B is supposed to be the data for a van with the EMM installed.
SOC % Over Time
The tables shown indicate the battery State of Charge (SOC %) at different hourly time intervals. The data shows that the van in Run A completely ran out of charge after 5 hrs 37 min, while the van in Run B still had 44% of charge after that same amount of time. I put the data into a simple graph to show that based on the data presented the van in Run B (w/ EMM, we assume) clearly used less battery charge over the same time interval. If we extrapolate Run B linearly then the data implies that it could have run for a full 10 hours before reaching 0% SOC.
The graphs plot both Power (hp) and Calculated Speed (mph) as a function of Time (seconds). It essentially provides a timeline of how much power was required to rotate the dyno wheel at the indicated calculated speed at each moment of the run. It provides much more detail than the tables for Time and MPH, which appear to be manually recorded at far fewer intervals.
Run A Graph
Run B Graph
This is especially significant because the Run A graph displays quite a lot more variance in the vehicle speed and power, at least in the first half of the run, compared to Run B. When analyzing data, the differences can often provide clues for a meaningful understanding of the results.

Analyzing the Run A and Run B Differences

The reason it is important to carefully consider the differences is because we need to determine if the different results are caused by the device/phenomenon that we are actually studying, or by differences in the testing conditions. This is why scientists and engineers try to keep test conditions between trials as close as possible, in order to minimize the effects of environmental differences and make it easier to conclude that the result is due to the thing being tested. Unfortunately, there are several notable differences in the Run A and Run B testing conditions that may undermine how confidently we can conclude that the observed results were due to the EMM itself.
First, the NOTES indicate that Run A was conducted at a temperature of 63 F while the temperature during Run B was 74 F. Temperature can affect EV range, with collected data showing that EV range generally peaks at around 70-71F. This is due to a combination of the battery thermal management systems working to maintain an ideal temperature for the battery around that range, as well as the lower need for HVAC usage to maintain a comfortable interior temperature. The test notes indicate that “all acc on” for both tests, and Hardge has said in previous comments that this includes lights, radio, and even air conditioning. But the notes do not indicate what temperature the HVAC control was set to. A higher temperature would have the heater drawing more energy in Run A. To be fair, if the A/C was set to a lower temperature, then cooling would draw more energy for Run B. Without the details we are unable to assess the impact of the temperature difference.

Significant Fluctuations in Driving Procedure

But the data does show that there were significant differences in how the van was driven between Run A and Run B. The speed for Run B remains essentially flatline between 44-45 mph for essentially the entire run, and it is most likely that cruise control was set to maintain this consistency. In contrast, the first half of Run A exhibits significant speed fluctuation, with speeds dropping as low as 33 mph and rising above 53 mph, including two sharp accelerations that increased speed by about 15 mph. Even without overlaying the light blue lines indicating the range of speed for Run B over the data for Run A the fluctuations are obvious.
Speed Fluctuations
Fluctuating speeds can significantly affect energy consumption and range for an EV. This study showed that:
Driving speed oscillations negatively influence energy consumption of BEVs. The larger the oscillations, the higher the energy consumption. While small oscillations of 0.1 m/s^2 don’t significantly influence energy consumption, larger oscillations of 0.3 m/s^2 do (with a gain of 14% for eco-drivers, 37% for normal drivers and 53% for aggressive drivers).
Repeatedly accelerating and decelerating uses up considerably more energy than travelling at a constant rate of speed, causing up to 53% higher energy consumption according to that study. Those who have driven EVs for an extended amount of time know personally how different driving styles can impact efficiency. The exact same car driven over the exact same route in different manners can result in meaningful differences in the expected range (this very unofficial test showed a difference of 7% in battery charge from just a 30 mile drive).
This is also evident in the graph of Power between the two runs, with the power in Run A fluctuating significantly out of the range exhibited in Run B, with multiple periods showing double or triple the power draw. Again, the blue lines show the limited range of power draw for Run B compared to Run A.
Power Fluctuations
While it appears that cruise control was activated for Run B starting around the 12500 second (3.5 hour) mark, it is important to note that the cruise control was set to a higher speed of 53 mph, compared to the 45 mph speed set for Run B. The vehicle was then kept at 53 mph for more than 2 hours until the battery was depleted. In an indoor dyno test without the effects of aerodynamic drag, higher speed will have less of an impact on power, but there is still a meaningful difference. This is why the EPA uses different drive cycles to determine the EV efficiency and range at different speeds, and why the “city” rating is almost always higher than the “highway” range rating for EVs.
It is baffling why Mullen did not keep the driving profiles more consistent between Run A and Run B. The major differences in driving profile compromise being able to conclude that the greater efficiency displayed in Run B is due to the EMM as opposed to Run A being driven in a much less efficient manner.
This issue is compounded even more by the fact that only a single trial was conducted for each configuration. Everyone who has conducted scientific testing knows that multiple trials are important to average out the effects of random extremes. Why did Mullen chose to do only a single run with and without the EMM? Or, did Mullen and Hardge in fact do multiple runs, and cherry-picked only a single sample to share? It should be noted that it was a period of 15 days between Run A and Run B. Why did it take more than two weeks between the tests? We don’t even know if they used the same van for both Run A and Run B.

What about the Distance Travelled?

I will finish this post with one more factor I noticed that calls into question the legitimacy of the testing procedures performed. For a graph of speed versus time, the area under the line represents the total distance travelled. Using a tool like Graphreader allows you to plot out and generate a data set to match a given graph, and then with a bit of Google Sheet-fu we can derive the total distance travelled by the vehicle for each run.
I leave it to the reader to try it for themselves, but the result I obtained was:
  • Run A = 262 miles
  • Run B = 242 miles
With 44% SOC remaining and that distance traveled in Run B, a linear extrapolation would end up with a distance of 432 miles (65% higher than Run A) by the time the battery is fully depleted. But here is why this range figure does not make sense in light of what Mullen has previously stated.
In the PR statement that Mullen issued on April 20 (which remains deleted), Mullen stated that the testing of the EMM on the M1 “showed more than a 75% increase in range” (stock M1 is claimed to go 110 miles), resulting in a “calculated EPA estimated range of 186 miles”.
April 20 Mullen PR Statement
And yet the results shown in the data would imply that the estimated range ought to be an incredible 432 miles! Why would the company claim 186 miles as the improved result, rather than 432 miles? Are they not understanding the implications of their own data? Or are there some other factors that disallow claiming the 432 miles range?
But here’s another questionable aspect of this range value from the test results. Run A indicated that the stock Mullen 1 van travelled 262 miles total, which is nearly 240% the actual rated range for the vehicle. This strongly suggests that there are aspects with how the test was conducted that are unrealistic and depart from what you would see in real-world usage. You may recall that when Hardge had Element Materials test his golf cart, it was done with the drive wheels lifted off the floor and spinning freely, thus greatly reducing the load and allowing much longer (and entirely unrealistic) runtimes.
With so many details of the test procedures and other aspects of how the runs were conducted missing, it is difficult to draw any firmer conclusions based on what has been presented. Though at least it is more than what we had before.

2023.06.01 05:22 Klutzy-Coffee5598 Small claims court

My friend and I own a van together and I am going to sell my half to a different friend. Both friends agreed with the idea and the price I would receive. I told the friend buying my half he could use it under the condition that he pays me. He has been driving it, napping in it, and using it on a somewhat daily basis for a little more than a month and has yet to pay me or give me a time frame as to when he is going to pay me. I am getting impatient and I was wondering if he doesn't pay me could I make a small claim on him using it for a month and never paying me anything or did I just make the mistake of trusting him and letting him use it.

2023.06.01 05:08 notatheist The Shining: Blending The Book With The Movie

The entire movie takes on one day. Redrum day. Dec 2. Jack is already in the storeroom. Danny is asleep.
Wendy is hired on as the new manager. She’s the innkeeper, bookkeeper, bar keeper and more. She’s a great mother.
While the all-wound-up Jack is in the storeroom she unwinds him by making him believe he’s been a jet setter. He’s been at a july 4th ball but now it’s time to get to work.
He’s not allowed to work on his play anymore. No play. He drives to his new interview to have second thoughts about the job. She drives him to drink.
He says he’ll do anything for a drink. Deal. Halloranns life is payment to the hotel.
Wendy leaves Jack. Outside. To die. Navajo, Apache motif.
The story changes chapter 42 Mid Flight while Dick is on his way and Jack is still locked in the store room.
Now Hallorann thinks he is going to the Overlook to see if he has to replace the Torrances. Now he thinks they got scared and left. And all Wendy has to do is make sure she times it perfectly.
She keeps Danny with her so she doesn’t have to go looking for him when redrum time comes, then she sends him out of the bathroom window to go hide. She makes sure she has the knife with her so she can keep Jack from unlocking the door.
Al Shockley is really Watson who plugged his finger in a light socket. Al is also the tennis coach at stovington. Hence the tennis ball, and the couple wearing tennis clothes and carrying a bag of tennis balls out when Jack is walking in the hotel to meet with Mr Ullman. They took his balls with them.
Al is the court. The roque court? The tennis court? The divorce court. Where they fight over you in court. Al is courting Wendy. It’s all a masquerade.
Until Wendy unmasks in room 237. It was her! Wendy is stronger with the shine than they had imagined.
Also, Wendy probably killed her sister Aileen when they were kids. She probably accidentally killed her with her thoughts and has spent her whole life not believing it could possibly be true. Not believing that she made her sister run after the ball and get hit by the van all just by thinking it. She never could believe it until now. And killing a sibling would have made her very powerful (Navajo Apache motif). A Skin Walker in fact. And if Danny accidentally killed his unborn sibling by trying to get in its head, then that would make him one too.
Anyway it’s a lot and there tons more. But it’s for sure Wendy in the movie. After all she is turning it from a ghost story to a horror film.
Plus she’s more channeled. Jack was destructive. And she wears the carnation in her lapel. And she’s got the gold dog collar on her neck.

Hi everyone,
Seeing as Apollo may be going down and many may leave Reddit, I thought I’d post my HF journey and recovery in the hopes that many may see it and benefit.
I’m a health worker so some of the writing is a bit medically. Apologies for the length.
Right sided penile pain began in approx September 2022, worse on erection. Urinary symptoms gradually began, increased frequency and urgency. Erectile issues also began at same time and gradually increased, difficulty getting and maintaining erections. Penile pain persists. Noticed bend, bottle necking and shortening of penis, with hard palpable lump at area of pain. Saw urologist Dr Simon Van Rij in Nov 2022, impression no significant red flags, could be pelvic floor issue so referred to physio and recommended USS. Physio commenced March 2023 but USS not done yet. Currently wanting to rule out Peyronie’s as penile/erectile symptoms have worsened. Saw Dr Mark Morunga (Essential Men’s clinic Auckland); impression Peyronie’s and recommended P-shot following USS confirmation of plaque. Penile USS showed normal vascularity and no tissue thickening, but unable to rule out early Peyronie’s.
1/6/23 Began identifying more with Hard flaccid syndrome (HF) as I was felt that the penile deformity was more of an indentation (right upper lateral shaft, just beneath the glans) than a bend or curvature). Researched HF subreddits and found several users who had reported a complete or almost near complete recovery from HF using a combination of posture corrective exercises, psoas muscle stretching, pelvic floor stretching, and various strengthening exercises (glues, core). Began treatment on 18/5/23 using Scott Herman AP tilt correction exercise YouTube video and pelvic floor stretching routine at least once daily (some days twice) and noticed significant improvement in penile temperature, sensitivity, flaccid hang, penile fullness and erection quality within first two weeks. Morning elections and spontaneous erections are also returning. Having some lower back pain when doing glue bridge holds for glutes.
After months of agony I finally feel like I’m effectively recovering and on my way back to normal. Interestingly, I masturbated on 29/5/24 and felt absolutely rock hard with less effort than before I had HF. When I performed a level in my hard state my cock barely moved because it already felt like it was in kegel mode. My hypothesis is that HF is possibly an advanced symptom AP tilt and pelvic floor tightness.
One of the things that shocked me about this whole journey was how little academic information exists about HF. Being effectively cured by using Reddit has been both amazing and kinda hilarious. I would love to see this issue researched in depth because I think the treatments for HF have many benefits for overall penile and sexual health in healthy individuals. Additionally, the treatment is easy, free, and non-invasive making it tremendously accessible. I now only know too well the suffering that HF can cause, and the euphoria that a strong healthy cock can bring (or bring back) with this wonderful treatment.
I hope many see this and possibly benefit too. Love to you all

2023.06.01 04:52 SpicyTabasco3000 42M going on a family vacation with wife and 4 kids + MIL & FIL that my in-laws and my wife planned that no one else wants to go on

My in-laws and my wife are country fans and romanticize everything about the south.
I have never really fully embraced it, neither have our children.
Our oldest just graduated from high school, and now they are making us go to Gatlinburg Tennessee for a week on vacation.
It's going to be a 20 hour round trip by car to go to a part of the country most of us don't even think about, to enjoy a culture we really don't care for.
I thought we got out of it when our van started having mechanical issues and the shop wasn't going to be able to have it done in time for us to go.
But, no. Our in-laws are now renting a car.
So, now I am driving a 20 hour round trip in a rental car full of angry kids that don't want to go.
Sucks that this may be the last trip that we get with our oldest child and it's probably going to be on a low note.
I can't even begin to explain how difficult it has been trying to explain this to my wife and in-laws.
Our trips are usually pretty big, like bucket list big.
Disney World, Disneyland, beaches, major cities, skiing in the Rockie, kids' first experience in a new ocean to them.
From what I can tell we are going to be spending a week in a geriatric tourist trap with a southern drawl.
Now, I like some country music. It's all much older stuff not the formulaic buzzword pop music that's getting churned out these days.
Like Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton and the like. Now, my kids are getting older and they cannot stand country music. Even after explaining who Dolly Parton is and playing her music for them many times, they're not interested.
Apparently 2 of the days are going to be at Dollywood
Sure, 3/4 of the adults going will enjoy themselves. But these vacations aren't supposed to be for the adults and I just don't see the kids enjoying themselves.
Is there any way to make this something they'll enjoy?
I've been trying to play it from a "surprise" angle by not telling them what we'll be doing. But even then they're not enthused about the idea of sitting in the car for 10 hours only to end up in Tennessee.
Edit: typos

2023.06.01 04:36 FormalOperation6497 Weird Error problems

For the past few weeks I've been trying to fix my Valorant doing this weird behavior. basically whenever I launched Valorant I would be perfectly fine until anywhere from 10 seconds to a minute later the game would randomly kick me out and put me in an error screen, this screen showing the error code Val 1. HOWEVER it was not that simple as it was not just Val 1 but the error code would later switch somehow to VAN 1067. both of these are common error codes but it happens at the same time. I've already submitted a support ticket to Riot and tried everything they suggested but none of it worked. I tried on my other computer and it worked perfectly fine its just this one. I even factory reset my computer and it still doesn't work. does anyone have any ideas?

2023.06.01 04:07 Libbysdomain About 3 hours to kill in Belfast before departing for cruise

In a couple of weeks, several of us are flying into Dublin, arrive at 5:30am and I figure by the time we deplane and get our luggage, we’ll be leaving by 7 for the 1.5-2 hour drive to Belfast. We can’t be at the port until noon, so I’m trying to figure out how to use those hours productively. We have already arranged for a van to transport us to Belfast. So whatever you can suggest would be appreciated.
