2023.06.07 04:46 CS7Simmo How I would book Shawn Michael’s Last Match
My 4th booking now, previously done Cody finishing the story, MJF debuting in WWE and Drew’s heel turn.
SHAWN MICHAELS NEEDS TO HAVE ONE MORE MATCH. Sorry I know he’s old but that awful tag match in Saudi Arabia at Crown Jewel 2018 can’t be his last match, especially considering how good his ‘Retirement’ in 2010 was.
So starting off, who should it be? There’s plenty of candidates who would be amazing like Rollins, Balor, hell what about Rhea Ripley. But my choice is AJ Styles, this is probably the dreamiest of all dream matches. Anyway this is how I’d book it.
We start at Survivor Series 2023, AJ Styles faces Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Championship, and loses. After the match Styles is visibly furious, after all there’s no chance the bloodline didn’t interfere. On Smackdown it’s announced that Styles will be on the show for a promo. (‘We will hear from AJ Styles’), something like this.
On this Smackdown Adam Pearce can’t seem to find AJ anywhere when he gets approached by Gallows and Anderson. Anderson says to Pearce “AJ is gonna be exactly where he needs to be”. Pearce assumes Styles is showing up then. However when it’s time, Styles’s music hits but he doesn’t come out. Commentary apologise for Styles being unprofessional and will update the fans on any information.
A week and a half later, AJ Styles shows up on NXT. He doesn’t come out to his music though, instead he comes out during a match. Security are following him but not pulling him back. Styles simply gets in the ring, floors both men in the match and grabs a mic. “I am exactly where I need to be, and until I get what I want, I’m not going anywhere”.
NXT cuts to a break, when it comes back, Shawn Michaels is on the phone. “Hunter did you let him come here? No that’s what I thought, I want him out of here. I don’t know what he wants”. That’s all we get.
Next week Styles does it again. The week after, Styles is walking backstage when he’s stopped by HBK. “I don’t know what you want, but you need to stop sabotaging my show”. Styles replies “OK, see you around”. He winks at HBK and turns around to leave. “Actually scratch that, I haven’t got what I want yet”. Styles pushes past HBK, as he shoots AJ an angry look.
Next week, Styles interrupts a match again but this time HBK walks out, producers and security are following him begging him off. He gets in the ring, shouts at AJ. “What do you want!”. Styles says “You”. HBK looks taken aback. “I’m retired”. “We’ll see”. Styles starts to walk away, when suddenly he slaps Shawn. “What are you gonna do about that?”. “Nothing”. Styles smiles and leaves.
On Smackdown Styles shows up. He says “I know Shawn Michaels doesn’t wanna fight me, I was just pushing his buttons. What I really want is the world title, and I am gonna win the royal rumble”.
At the rumble, Styles enters No.20, beats everyone down and eliminates someone like Nakamura. As the countdown begins, Styles poses in the ring, shouting “It doesn’t matter who it is”.
You know who it is, at Number 21 it is Shawn Michaels. HBK runs in and immediately eliminates both AJ and himself just like Mick Foley did to Randy Orton. HBK then delivers a sweet chin music on the outside to take AJ out.
On Smackdown AJ comes out and demands Shawn Michaels to come out. But he doesn’t. This happens for weeks, every time he calls him out, and every time HBK doesn’t answer. As the weeks go on Styles gets more and more crazy.
The week before Elimination Chamber, Styles shows up on NXT, once again demands HBK come out. “The show won’t go on until you get out here”. Styles keeps cutting his promo staring straight down the camera. Suddenly, in the corner of the shot, HBK rises up after sliding in the ring, he’s standing in the corner. Hits crotch chop, AJ turns around into a Sweet Chin F***ing Music. Michaels gets on a mic and simply says “I’ll see you at Wrestlemania”.
The promos on Smackdown building up to mania focus on Styles claiming he is better than Michaels. “You stayed retired because you were scared that if we faced, I would embarrass you in front of all these people who admire you”.
Michaels says “I stayed retired out of respect for the Undertaker, if I wanted to kick your ass, I would’ve. And I’m going to”.
At WrestleMania 40, AJ Styles vs Shawn Michaels main events Night 1. (I’d want it to main event night 2 but if Roman’s reign ends here it’ll be much more monumental if it’s on night 2)
Hopefully the match is banger, even at his age Michaels could go, and he is still the most reliable Wrestlemania performer of all time, so it should be good.
The match remixes some memories from Michaels’ career. Styles hits a Pedigree, Michaels locks in the sharpshooter, Styles goes for an AA but HBK flips out into the corner and hits AJ with a Sweet Chin Music (just like the Cena match on RAW in London 2007) however Styles kicks out.
The finish of the match is Styles hitting a Styles Clash, then a phenomenal forearm for the win.
And that’s how I’d do it, I hope you enjoyed it and let me know hit you liked it.

2023.06.07 04:45 FistyMcBeefSlap Time to chamber a barrel
What’s an approximate time to chamber a barrel for a relative noob on a manual machine. I know this is a vague question but if you could just humor me with some approximates I’d sure appreciate it. Talking about setup, indicating (average for different types of indicating and work holding), chambering, fitting…. Trying to get a sense of how long it takes most folks when they’re learning and how much faster one can get once they get some experience. We talking 2 hours? 10 hours?

2023.06.07 04:40 certifeyedgenius Almost ended up the idiot
Took my Kriss Vector to the range last weekend for the last time before I sell it. Removed the magazine and cleared the headspace. Cleaned it and then I took photos of it yesterday.
Today, I took it out to remove any modifications, including the screw to loosen the trigger. Instinctively, was about to pull the trigger to test the pull, and even put my finger on it.
Something told me to STOP, and just pull the charging handle back first. A live round was extracted and dropped onto the floor.
I realized that when I took photos yesterday, I staged it with a loaded mag. Must've chambered a round and not realized it.
Came this close to my wife banning me from firearms forever and police at my door. Always treat it like it's loaded.

2023.06.07 04:36 Shadowfreddy311 Microsoft Bing (write a story about scp055)
Dr. Jones was a senior researcher at Site-19, and he had a secret. He was the only person who knew about SCP-055, the mysterious object that defied all attempts to describe or remember it. He had discovered it by accident, when he stumbled upon its containment chamber during a routine inspection. He had entered the room, curious about what was inside, and had seen... something. Something that he couldn't recall, even as he was looking at it. But he had felt a surge of awe and fear, and had quickly left the room, closing the door behind him.
He had tried to report his discovery to his superiors, but he found himself unable to articulate what he had seen. He had tried to write it down, but his notes were blank. He had tried to take a picture, but his camera was empty. He had tried to go back to the room, but he couldn't remember where it was. He had tried to forget about it, but he couldn't.
He became obsessed with SCP-055, spending hours in the archives, searching for any clues or records of its existence. He found nothing. No one else seemed to know or care about it. It was as if it had never been there.
But Dr. Jones knew it was there. And he wanted to know more.
He devised a plan. He would use a device that could record his brain activity while he was inside SCP-055's chamber, and then play it back later, hoping to bypass its anti-memetic effect. He smuggled the device into Site-19, and waited for an opportunity to sneak into SCP-055's room.
One night, when the security was low, he made his move. He found the door to SCP-055's chamber, marked with a sign that said "Do Not Enter". He ignored it, and entered the room.
He saw... something.
He activated the device, and placed it on his head.
He approached... something.
He reached out his hand, and touched... something.
He felt... something.
The device recorded everything.
Dr. Jones ran out of the room, terrified and confused. He didn't know what he had done, or what had happened to him. He didn't know what SCP-055 was, or what it wanted from him. He didn't know anything.
He ran to his office, where he had hidden a playback device. He locked the door behind him, and plugged in the device. He put on a pair of headphones, and pressed play.
He heard... nothing.
He saw... nothing.
He felt... nothing.
He remembered... nothing.
The device was empty.
SCP-055 had erased itself from his mind.
And from his device.
And from his story.

2023.06.07 04:36 sumdeal Rep Sarah Stalker newsletter
TLDR Got a long spam email but it had some good info buried how to engage in the legislative process
So I got this in my email today. My husband said it was spam and while I understand the beginning is very much on one side but at the end it gives good simple information on how to observe the process that is shaping our state. It’s possible I am also overthinking. Did anyone else read this?
Let’s dive right into June, shall we? The U.S. Department of Justice came to Louisville in May for community feedback on how to address a pattern of unconstitutional policing so the public can help craft reforms for the Louisville Metro Police Department. I attended one of the several meetings, and want to share the Findings Report with you if you haven’t already seen it. If you didn’t attend an in-person meeting, you can email [email protected]
or leave a message at 844-920-1460 to share ideas at any time. They will also be able to provide you with more information about future events. We are approaching the one-year mark on June 24, 2022, when the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade, declaring that the constitutional right to abortion, upheld for nearly a half-century, no longer exists. Kentucky voters rejected a ballot measure in November 2022 aimed at denying any constitutional protections for abortion. Despite a victory for abortion-rights advocates, the amendment’s defeat keeps a ban on abortion in place while a legal challenge is presently being considered by the state Supreme Court. I am committed to refiling bills to support and protect women’s health, and access to healthcare, while working with women on both sides of the aisle in both chambers who are also focused on addressing our poor maternal health outcomes in KY. We are now in the month of Pride which celebrates our LGBTQ community and acknowledges the struggles and history that got us here. June 28, 1969, marks the beginning of the Stonewall Uprising, a series of events between police and LGBTQ+ protesters that spanned over six days. The Stonewall Inn was one of the most popular gay bars in New York City. Throughout the state, it was illegal to serve alcohol to a gay person until 1966, and in 1969, homosexuality was still considered a criminal offense. It was not the first time police raided a gay bar, and it was not the first time LGBTQ+ people fought back, but the events that unfolded over the next six days fundamentally changed the nature of LGBTQ+ activism in the United States. If you are interested in attending an event or volunteering at an event, you have an extensive list of opportunities that our friends at the Fairness Campaign have listed here. Also, with the arrival of June and its vibrant greens and sunny warm days, the Office of Sustainability is excited to launch the Green Resources for Residents guidebook, a one-stop resource to help individuals and families save costs while going green! Residents can learn about financial incentives available through the Inflation Reduction Act, Louisville Metro Government, Louisville Gas and Electric, and more. June also kicks off the interim committee meetings for 2023. The Regular Session ended March 30th, and after a short break, lawmakers return to Frankfort for the interim, which is the time we are not only in meetings but also working on legislation we want to file when we go back into session in January 2024. Every committee I serve on (Agriculture, VMAPP, Small Business and IT, Local Government) turns into a joint committee, meaning the Senate and House standing committees are combined. I enjoy the opportunity for everyone to be in the same room for a more extensive conversation since during the session our committees are separate. Likewise, any task forces, statutory and special committees will also meet during the interim period. I am also thrilled to be serving on the Health & Human Services Delivery System task force. There are so many important services that run through this cabinet, and we need to find ways to improve the structure of how supports and services are delivered so Kentuckians have their needs met in a timely manner. I believe in transparency and civic participation, and want you to know how to engage in the legislative process. The comprehensive 2023 interim calendar is available on the official Kentucky General Assembly website. Please note, the fluid nature of our work means the calendar may be subject to change. While many of our interim joint, statutory, and special committee meetings are held in our historic Capitol Annex building in Frankfort, I understand not everyone can be there in person. However, in this digital age, distance is no obstacle to democracy. Kentucky Educational Television (KET) and the Legislative Research Commission will be providing a livestream of the committee meetings, ensuring you can participate remotely. The legislative calendar will be refreshed weekly with information about upcoming committee meetings to keep you updated. Furthermore, you can find more information about each interim joint, statutory, or special committee on their web pages. We are only as strong as our willingness to engage; which looks like staying informed, involved, and committed to positive change for all, particularly those who are vulnerable. We have a responsibility to each other and the common good. Let’s be each other's best partner and advocate in this journey; even when we might not always agree, I promise I will always be open to an honest conversation. If you have any comments, questions, or concerns, email me at [email protected]
. You can also call my office at 502-564-8100, where an operator will happily connect you to my assistant Jake. For assistance en Español call 1-866-840-6574. Those with hearing impairments can use the Kentucky Relay Service at 711.

2023.06.07 04:23 Mahendra08 Need help...
I will be arriving in Ahmedabad for the first time in my life on June 8th. I will arrive in the city with no money, no place to live, and no contacts. My goal is to build a business.
I had an e-commerce business in the USA, so I am not entirely new to the business field. I have also had a few side hustles.
I am aware that it may be difficult since I have never lived in a city before. I grew up in a small village (in Gujarat) and had a good life there, but I have no experience with city life.
Initially, I had planned to bring my laptop with me, but since I won't have a place to live, I had to abandon that idea.
I am 21 years old and have only completed 10th.
I don't know what will happen, but I am open to whatever comes my way. I would love to hang out with some of you and share our knowledge with each other. My first goal is to make some money for a temporary accommodation.
I am open to any suggestions you may have.
You may upvot the post so that it can reach more people. Thak you (:

2023.06.07 04:23 Apprehensive-Log-928 Commerce Internship
Hi everyone! I just completed (2INO - commerce internship course) this summer and I'm wondering if it's worth pursuing an internship in BCom. I've spoken to some commerce students and each one has explained the pros and cons. I'd like to know your opinion on this. When you encounter commerce students, how many of them recommend doing an internship? Should I pursue the internship or search for a job with higher salaries?
I’d love to hear your opinions.

2023.06.07 04:13 03L1V10N 🐣 P1HARMONY Theo's B-Day Event in Kuala Lumpur (July 1st, 2023 from 11:00AM to 6:00PM) 🐣
2023.06.07 04:09 Twigs2Branches 2nd year uni student. This sub is constantly making me doubt wanting to become a teacher.
I'm not sure if this is just a classic case of an 'echo chamber', but the more I browse this subreddit the more it dawns on me that becoming a teacher is going to be horrible and not what I had in mind. I'm wondering if I should just avoid reading this sub in general, but then again blissful ignorance albeit blissful, is still ignorance at the end of the day. It's baffling to see how many teachers in Australia seem to hate their job, have bad experiences with students, as well as faculty and leadership.
I'm starting to consider dropping out because I don't want to spend another 3 years at uni only to become as miserable as the other teachers on here. I guess what I'm hoping for is for someone to tell me I'm wrong. When I started my degree, It was around the time that I saw this post-pandemic cultural shift towards appreciating essential workers more (nurses, doctors, teachers etc) But after a year of reading posts on this subreddit daily, things just seem to be getting worse instead of better. This isn't what I had hoped for, and now I feel like I've lost all motivation.
Does anyone else feel the way I do?

2023.06.07 04:06 onlyhereforthebeerYo East Lyme ― A staff member found a loaded handgun inside an infant’s diaper
East Lyme ― A staff member found a loaded handgun inside an infant’s diaper bag Friday morning at Ballestrini’s Child Care Center in Niantic.
She secured the loaded Smith & Wesson M&P 9MM handgun in a desk in the office and called the police and the child’s father, according to a police report and the child care center.
Town police who investigated the incident said it was not criminal in nature. The parents ― one of them a probation officer and the other a correction officer ― have permits to carry a handgun and said there was a mix-up with the bag brought to the center, according to the police report.
Andrea Ballestrini Rowe, director of Ballestrini’s Child Care Centers, said staff reacted quickly to make sure the children were safe. She said the bag never left possession of the parent or staff member and was locked in the office after being found.
“At no time was there a threat to the children in our care,” she said in a notification to parents. “Yes, we agree that the gun being in the program was a risk, but at no time was there a threat made against the program.”
Rowe said the center notified parents of the incident. She said the center would be checking all children’s bags on a daily basis, and the child’s enrollment was suspended. She added that the center also is reviewing its security protocols “and working closely with local authorities to ensure the continued safety of our program.”
According to the police report, a father dropped off his infant at the child care facility at 161 West Main St. in Niantic a little before 8 a.m. Friday with a pink backpack-style diaper bag. Police said the infant “was not physically capable of accessing the diaper bag.”
Police said a staff member, who was unpacking the bag, put the bag down and heard a “metallic thump” and thought it was a water bottle. The staff member checked and saw it was actually a firearm in a holster. The staff member then removed the gun and secured it in a desk in the office and called the infant’s father and the police.
The police officer, William Bergantino, who came to the child care center retrieved the firearm “and made it safe,” according to the report.
According to the police report, the mother of the child, who uses the bag and owns the firearm, came to the center. Both parents were apologetic and informed the police officer that “there was a mix-up which resulted in the wrong bag being dropped off at day care” with the infant. The firearm is registered to the mother and both parents have valid Connecticut pistol permits.
She told police the firearm was in a holster, loaded with a round in the chamber, and had the safety on.
According to the report, the father, who is employed as an adult probation officer, told police that he grabbed what he thought was an empty bag that morning, put the infant’s lunchbox in the bag, took the child to the center, and left for work. He returned to the center once a staff member notified him that a gun had been found in the bag and he called the infant’s mother to ask where her firearm was, and she said it was in the pink bag.
According to police report, the father detailed safety measures in place at home to ensure firearms are properly stored. Police said the parents were remorseful and said they both would ensure safe storage of firearms in the future.
According to the report, the mother, who works as a correction officer, told police that due to her recent work schedule she had been asleep when her husband dropped their child off at day care. She said she has been using the bag when she runs errands and placing the firearm in the bag for protection when she is out, as the holster she uses to carry the firearm does not always fit comfortably with certain outfits.
The mother said she had used the bag the evening before, and her husband unknowingly grabbed the bag with the firearm still inside, the report said.
Police referred the matter to the Department of Children and Families and did not file charges.
Jason Fargo, parent of another child in the class, said he was only notified of the incident on Sunday evening. He said he wanted more detailed information from the day care center sooner and went to the police to get a report. He said he is calling for the center to hold a “town hall” style meeting about the incident.
“My daughter was in there in the same room with a gun that they kept saying was secured,” he said. “But the legal gun owner was not in the room and it was holstered with a live round in the chamber, and it says it in the police report, that the officer had to make it safe and (the staff member) put the bag down and they heard a thud so the gun could have gone off.”
He said the parents are both state employees, and any other parent would have been charged.
According to the Office of Early Childhood, state regulations specify that no dangerous weapons or facsimile of a firearm are permitted on the premises of the child day care center or group day care center unless carried by a peace officer.
But East Lyme Police Chief Michael Finkelstein said there is no state law that makes this a criminal act. He said the police reviewed the incident and also reviewed it with the New London state’s attorney’s office, which agreed no criminal violation occurred based on existing information.
He said the parents’ professions played no role in the determination. He said both parents are legally allowed to possess firearms and, in this case, the child was so young, that there was no reasonable chance for a child to access the weapon.
However, Finkelstein said that after new gun violence prevention legislation signed Tuesday by Gov. Ned Lamont goes into effect, an incident like this could be looked at differently. Most portions of the newly signed law, which expands the state’s safe gun storage laws among other provisions, will be effective in October.
Finkelstein added that hopefully this incident is a reminder to people that storing firearms in a bag that could be mixed up and brought to a child’s school is a danger.
DCF, Office of Early Childcare
Ken Mysogland, bureau chief of external affairs at the state Department of Children and Families, confirmed a report was received after a weapon was located at the child care center.
"Information provided indicated that the center immediately responded, safeguarded the young children and contacted the authorities,“ he said in a statement. ”No further action is warranted in relation to the daycare's actions.“
“The Department is working in collaboration with local law enforcement to investigate the circumstances under which the weapon was brought to the daycare and to ensure the person(s) responsible for the child's care provide a safe environment for this child and any other household members" Mysogland added.
The Connecticut Office of Early Childcare, which licenses day care centers, issued a statement that the child care center followed proper protocols and no violation was found.
“OEC investigated this case and found that the operator acted responsibly upon becoming aware of a firearm on the premises, thus no regulatory violations were cited,” the agency said. “Program staff locked up the firearm and immediately called police and followed their policies by notifying parents of the incident per their emergency plans.”
Rowe said that this is not a situation the Ballestrini child care centers have faced before.
“I am proud of our team’s prompt and responsive actions to protect the children in our school and we are grateful that all are safe,” she said. “The safety of the children is our number one concern, it is important that families continue to feel safe.” [email protected]

2023.06.07 04:03 colton2822 Which fuel with added horsepower?
Chimera intake, ransoto Amazon exhaust, DHM S1 cam, DHM flash. Should I be running 93 octane or 87 since it is producing more horsepower? I’m assuming the combustion chamber is getting hotter because of the increased power than stock was. Also have an oil cooler and large oil pump is that matters at all.

2023.06.07 04:03 ForSacredRussia1 Yury Terekhov's Marginals: "Let this darkness engulf the enemy, and let us be protection, shelter and disguise. Let fear cover those who were vile and cowardly, on whose hands the blood of Bucha, Mariupol and Bakhmut"

Yury Terekhov's Marginals ENGLISH
It is surprising, of course, that a great war fell to the lot of my generation. After all, it would seem that we were not born for this: the horrors of world catastrophes died down, the Berlin Wall collapsed, the generation of my parents sincerely tried to create their own cozy and autonomous world. The only pity is that they had to pay with their own freedom. As a consequence, we return to the starting point according to Quincy Adams: "I should study politics and war in order to give my sons the freedom to study mathematics, philosophy and commerce, and their sons to study art." So it fell to us to find out the price of life, freedom and dignity. And while there are those who believe that these concepts are not so simple, we will have to fight.
So I wouldn't indulge myself with fantasies about how quickly a peaceful life will be restored after the war, Putin or the regime somehow magically ends. It is time to recognize that from now on our destiny is a war that has just begun. And, if you're lucky, politics in its distilled form, namely the forging of a new civilian nation on the smoking ruins. Does it scare me? No, I just took note of it. I advise you to look into the darkness as a predator, and not as a victim. Let this darkness engulf the enemy, and let us be protection, shelter and disguise. Let fear cover those who were vile and cowardly, on whose hands the blood of Bucha, Mariupol and Bakhmut, who exchange other people's lives to maintain their miserable status. Will we forget? Will we forgive? Shall we give our children and grandchildren the same experience?
Удивительное дело, конечно, что на долю моего поколения выпала большая война. Ведь, казалось бы, рождены мы были не для этого: отгремели ужасы мировых катастроф, рухнула Берлинская стена, поколение моих родителей искренне пыталось создать свой уютный и автономный мир. Жаль только, что расплачиваться им пришлось собственной свободой. Как следствие, мы опять возвращаемся в исходную точку по Куинси Адамсу: «я должен изучать политику и войну, чтобы дать своим сыновьям свободу изучать математику, философию и торговлю, а их сыновья занимались искусством». Вот и нам выпало узнать цену жизни, свободы и достоинства. И пока находятся те, кто считает, что с этими понятиями не все так однозначно, нам придется воевать.
Так что я бы не стал тешить себя фантазиями о том, как быстро наладится мирная жизнь после того, как каким-то волшебным образом закончится война, путин или режим. Пора признать, что отныне наша судьба это война, которая только началась. И, если повезет, политика в ее дистиллированном варианте, а именно сколачивание новой гражданской нации на дымящихся руинах. Пугает ли это меня? Нет, я просто принял это к сведению. Во тьму я советую смотреть как хищник, а не как жертва. Пусть эта тьма поглотит врага, а нам будет защитой, укрытием и маскировкой. Пусть страх покроет тех, кто был подл и малодушен, на чьих руках кровь Бучи, Мариуполя и Бахмута, кто разменивает чужие жизни на поддержание своего жалкого статуса. Забудем ли? Простим ли? Дадим своим детям и внукам испытать то же?
2023.06.07 03:58 OutcomePlayful Maxx m4a hop up issue with vfc mcx
| || |
I have been doing a lot of different tries want to make it work, but Maxx m4a really became a pain in the ass. I am in Japan and running my mcx with 0.9j power with 0.25 Bb. The aeg was a wet dream, before maxx m4a was installed… With pts mags which is one of the best option for tricky mcx, maxx can be having double feeding and miss feeding a lot. I have tried different nozzle, different sector delay chips, different mags, even different brand bb. submitted by OutcomePlayful to airsoft [link] [comments]
Now, my mcx have feeding issues at the first 10-20 rounds of the mags, it can be double feeding, or no feeding and all. Meanwhile , even the air seal has been improved a lot, the fps was incredible, my mcx has a significant worse accuracy than before. I’m using the default flat nub from maxx, an Miyagawa bucking made in japan( better accuracy than maple leaf but still worse than vfc original chamber era)
I have work on it for over a year, do someone also have similar issues that can give me advice thank you so much.
Hope I will smile on the maxx hop up one day.
2023.06.07 03:51 Nice-Pass-6724 Ant tree dungeon idea
(This post is just gonna be me rambling about a dream of what could be in grounded 2)
Imagine if the tree wasn’t an early game lab location, but instead a late game dungeon. 5 layers each with unique ways to explore the tree. With layer one being the bottom of the tree. Sap coming out of some of the roots attracting hordes of tiny little black ants, 2 mites long but in large hordes. If you get near they all attack you at once but are easily killed. Closer to the tree and some on climbing on the base of it, giant black ants bigger than any other ants seen in ground. The size could be orb weaver size, and they would be heavily armored and could resist every element but sour. You can make climbing gear and climb up the tree, and the middle of the trees trunk could be layer 2, with the giant black ants crawling around. You can’t attack while climbing but you can throw grenades at the ants to send the giant ants all the way to the ground. Their corpses would be soured out so no pincers or armor plates could be collected from their bodies. After climbing the tree and using sour grenades you can enter layer 3, where you find a sap leaking hole with ants coming in and out to the other layers. When entered you will be inside the colonies base, and by using a torch you will light your way though the colony, fighting large groups of 6-9 smaller black ants, while also finding giant black ant warriors to fight. You can eat pure sap for large heals after fights. You will eventually find your way to layer 4, lower inside the tree you will reach the queens chamber, you will fight her while also fighting hordes of small ants and duos of large ants. After defeating her you will use her pheromones to command ants to move a blockade and allow you to enter layer 5. In layer 5 you will find why the entrance was blockaded, a brown widow fought its way into the nest and had made a nest, and after fighting it with the help of ants (queen pheromones allow them to command them) the ants will open a second entrance to the tree so you can enter through the bottom and not have to climb. Using the ant queen pheromones (rubbing them on your body) they will be friendly, give you pure sap sometimes, and will protect you near their nest. If you attack one only the ant you attack will attack back all others will ignore the fight.
Im guessing nobody is gonna read this but it’s nice to have it out there

2023.06.07 03:51 starcat_the2nd Asked chatgbt to turn distractible into a SCP
Item #: SCP-XXXX
Object Class: Euclid
Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is to be contained within a soundproof and electronically shielded containment chamber at Site-██. The containment chamber is to be equipped with audio monitoring devices to detect any anomalous activity. SCP-XXXX is to be stored in a locked and sealed soundproof case when not under testing.
Due to the memetic properties of SCP-XXXX, personnel assigned to its containment must undergo regular psychological evaluations and memetic resistance training. No personnel with a history of attention deficit or hyperactivity disorders are to be assigned to SCP-XXXX.
Description: SCP-XXXX is an audio recording identified as the "Distractible Podcast." It is an anomalous podcast series hosted by individuals known as "Mark" and "Bob," with each episode ranging from 30 to 60 minutes in duration. SCP-XXXX exhibits a number of highly unusual properties that affect both the hosts and listeners.
The primary anomalous effect of SCP-XXXX is its extreme ability to distract and divert the attention of individuals who listen to it. This effect is amplified in individuals who already possess a predisposition for distractibility. The content of the podcast is intentionally designed to be highly engaging, frequently shifting topics and employing rapid-fire humor, sound effects, and tangential discussions. These elements work in tandem to captivate the listener's attention and prevent focused cognitive processing.
Listeners often report losing track of time, becoming disoriented, and experiencing difficulty in completing tasks while listening to SCP-XXXX. The distractibility effect persists even after the podcast is paused or turned off, leading to prolonged difficulty in concentrating on other activities.
Furthermore, SCP-XXXX possesses memetic properties that make it highly contagious. Listeners who have been exposed to SCP-XXXX are more likely to recommend it to others, resulting in rapid propagation of the memetic influence. The podcast has gained a significant following and has been downloaded millions of times.
Addendum XXXX-1: Incident XXXX-Alpha On ██/██/20██, during a routine containment inspection, a security breach occurred when Junior Researcher ██████ unintentionally activated the playback of SCP-XXXX while performing maintenance in the containment chamber. Due to the containment breach, SCP-XXXX's memetic effects spread throughout Site-██, leading to a mass distraction event. Multiple personnel became incapacitated, and a number of security breaches occurred across the facility.
After █ hours, security personnel managed to regain control of the situation and contained SCP-XXXX. A thorough review of security protocols was conducted, and additional measures were implemented to prevent similar incidents in the future.
Addendum XXXX-2: Experiment Log XXXX
Experiment XXXX-01: Purpose: To assess the long-term effects of exposure to SCP-XXXX. Procedure: D-Class personnel D-2534 was exposed to SCP-XXXX for 24 hours. Results: D-2534 exhibited extreme difficulty in maintaining attention and focus for several days after exposure. Cognitive impairment was observed, and D-2534 displayed a marked decline in performance on cognitive tests. Conclusion: Prolonged exposure to SCP-XXXX amplifies the distractibility effect and results in significant long-term cognitive impairment.
Experiment XXXX-07: Purpose: To examine the effects of SCP-XXXX on individuals with attention deficit and hyperactivity disorders. Procedure: D-Class personnel diagnosed with ADHD (D-3867) listened to SCP-XXXX for 15 minutes. Results: D-3867 experienced an intensification of symptoms associated with ADHD, including heightened restlessness, difficulty concentrating, and increased impulsivity. These effects persisted for several hours after exposure. Conclusion: SCP-XXXX exacerbates the symptoms of attention deficit and hyperactivity disorders, making it highly detrimental for individuals with these conditions.

2023.06.07 03:44 Jolly-Crewman Room For Steeve
Alright so we all love Steeve.
But what I hate is leaving Steeve behind, especially so because I actually get really attached to the little glyphid. The space rig has some room near the top of the Rig or we can build a room onto the rig if need be. It's time we have reward Steeve for his undying loyalty. Let's get a room for Steeve, like a playpen or something covering in grass with a bed for Steeve where we can spend the day petting and playing with Steeve.
Make it lore friendly with an antechamber like the medbay where your cleansed and detox'd upon entering or leaving so management wouldn't have to worry about anything Steeve could bring aboard.
We can save Brothers. Save Dotty.
We couldn't save Karl, so let's save the only friend we have left to save.
Maybe a small chamber in the side of the drop pod for Steeve to actually go into when you still have him at the end of a mission, like Molly has!

2023.06.07 03:41 odiumer Should there be more ways to get good alignment points?
Hi, I am new to the AOW series and absolutely love AOW4.
I played quite a few campaigns with many different starting factions, but one minor thing I find annoying about this game is that there are very few ways to get good alignment points and all of them are in random events. Even though playing evil in AOW4 is extremely fun, I already tried to do a few runs trying to play as a good guy, and out of 3 I managed to reach pure good alignment only one single time when I was delaying ending the campaign on purpose. I find that kind of stupid, sure it is and should be much harder to be considered good vs bad, but it should still not be so ridiculously time-consuming.
It is lucky that alignment does not matter that much for most factions, but still, I think it should be tweaked how the gain happens. For once high culture is highly affected by it, with its bonus from being pure good vs neutral vs pure evil, and with how the game works right now if you are not role-playing it is never worth playing as good guys with high culture( and you always should either go neutral of rush pure evil which is very easy) because you lose one of two main culture bonuses for an almost entire campaign. One quick fix for high culture could be that you get shifting bonuses from in between alignments as well.
But I personally hope that in future we get some more mechanics that will be affected by alignment (giving some replayability for the same faction thru different alignments). And even if that does not happen, I still think we should get some reliable way to get good points during the campaign. For example, having alliances with factions, packs and vassalages with free cities of good alignment could produce some either every few turns. Or maybe declaring war (even unjust war) against evil factions good gives us some good points? Destroying infestations and clearing some types of ancient wonders I think can already give an event to gain good points, but with certain "evil" infestations it could be granted automatically/or (for better control for evil campaigns) it should always give an event with that option. Maybe there could be a new building giving you points like a charity house vs a torture chamber (or something like that).
What do you guys think about the alignment system and its current impact? Do you agree there should be more ways to gain good points? If you do, do you think my ideas for implementation are ok, or do you have different ones? Or maybe you think it is easy to gain good points already, in that case maybe you can give me advice on how to do that? Either way, i appreciate any response.

2023.06.07 03:39 Dry2061 Question for getting my driveway redone and asphalted
I was looking on Minnetonka's website regarding permits. And it states that either I need a permit or my licensed contractor needs a permit to asphalt my driveway. And apparently the permit identification number must be shown on the contract or website.
I went with a company from the city paper. And this is my first time hiring anyone regarding the driveway.
Welp. I'm not seeing any permit info at all. I've emailed the company asking for the information, but I'm assuming if they refuse to provide the information then I should just contact the Minnesota Department of Commerce?
Sigh. This definitely isn't how I wanted to start the week.
