2023.06.09 02:51 Ok-Pervert-2412 Work Trauma - Toxic Corporation - Discrimination
I'm an old guy and have a small novel I could write about my life, and the role trauma shaped who I am today. I was in a toxic work situation in my late 30s and 40s that was out of control. I was making more money than I had ever made in my life, but management was using my mental health treatment to leverage against me in performance reviews. It got to a point where other employees felt comfortable enough to humiliate me at dinners or meetings. One time a coworker, who was jelous of my national performance stood up in a restaurant screaming obscenities at me (she was probably drunk 8am meeting) - this was in front of diners including 5 professionals I had know from childhood. We all worked for a giant multinational pharma company, and I probably had a good defamation case, and later a strong ADA case.
Net net I let it slide, the top producer nationally in my company had such low self esteem I let crap like that slide. I knew if I pushed for the rep (who was a drinking buddy of the Area Manager) would eventually end my career.
20 plus years later I have days where I dig up these traumas and they make me burn inside. If only I had a tape recorder on that day or at that meeting - I would have recovered hundreds of thousands in punitive damages if not millions. Bad luck, just before iPhones.
I had a bad day today, went down memory lane and feel horrible this evening. I have done thousands of hours of CBT, book reading, group - all have helped but I still feel broken.
I am not a violent person, however I have fantasies of retribution towards a handful of people who prospered while I, national rep of the year - bla bla bla had a career that was torpedoed over the time at that company. Tonight's fantasy is dark alley with a Sig-sauer 40 with a nice can on the end of the barrel.
Obvious not healthy thinking. Anyone who has ways to break that kind of thinking? I thought I had moved on, do good for a year or two and then rage comes back.
Sorry if this upset anyone.

2023.06.09 01:59 Aegison Need help editing font that has clipping problems
Hello, I use a font that is easy to read for ESL students but I have issues with it clipping the button part of lowercase letters when the paragraph spacing is tight in Word. Also, when highlighting the font the lowercase letters extend past the highlighting. I like to use black highlighting for "redacting" word on quizzes and the lowercase letters poking out is too much of a hint.
I also noticed that the cursor in Word isn't as tall as the letters. All other fonts that I tested in Word the cursor is the same height as the font.
I have been trying to edit the font in Font Forge but I really don't have any idea what I am doing. Can anyone help me adjust the right settings to get the spacing/highlighting correct on this font?

2023.06.09 00:17 beenoc [Combat Robotics] Riptide: How one Battlebots team managed to just be the worst in every way
This drama is mainly about the events of Season 7/World Championship 7 (WC7), the season of Battlebots that aired in 2023. Big spoilers for the season inbound, including the overall winner
, along with spoilers of the outcomes and winners of previous seasons.
I will try my hardest to be unbiased which is hard because I am extremely biased and any attempt to be unbiased could only come across as enlightened centrism. I will simply try to keep the bias to a manageable level.
In case you don't know, Battlebots (well, combat robotics, but Battlebots is the most well-known and publicized event by an order of magnitude) is a... sport? Game? Hobby? Lifestyle? Where the goal is to throw two robots of a comparable weight against each other, with the goal to destroy each other. Battlebots itself is in the heavyweight category, with a 250 lb weight limit per robot. Other popular weight classes (relatively popular - heavyweight is the only televised one) are antweight (1 lb), beetleweight (3 lb), hobbyweight (12 lb), and lightweight (30 lb.) Battlebots itself airs on Discovery, generally with a main season and a spinoff season each year.
If you watched Battlebots back in the late 90s when it was on Comedy Central, you might remember robots that were basically big wedges pushing each other around a square and maybe occasionally taking a bit of armor off. That's not how it is anymore
. Bots are destructive, powerful, and great spectacles to watch fight. Seriously, you should watch Battlebots. It's on Discovery+ and
Max. If you don't want to spend the money,
Norwalk National Havoc Robotics League (NHRL)
has competitions every few months that are livestreamed for free on Youtube in the smaller weight classes.
In case it's not clear from the write-up, Battlebots is filmed usually in the fall, and the season airs spring the next year. So all of the events in this write-up occurred over a 2-week period in OctobeNovember 2022, but only were public drama as the episodes aired January-May 2023. Much like any reality/game show, all the builders, production, etc. knew the outcome of the season before anything aired, there's just millions of dollars of NDAs.
Something interesting about Battlebots that might surprise those unfamiliar with it is the culture. While teams work as hard as they can to reduce the other robot to splintered scrap in the box, back in the pits everyone is super awesome and nice and kind and helpful - a frequent occurrence is going to the pit of the bot you just took apart and seeing if there is any way you can help with the rebuild.
The classic example
is in the 2021 season, when the iconic Witch Doctor
's weapon disk kept breaking due to poor quality steel. They were scrambling to find material and resources to machine a new disk, when a ton of teams came together to save their season.
(yes, that's a trans Battlebot) lent them their pickup truck, to go pick up steel from a nearby supplier who was found by the captain of Team Blacksmith
They needed to recreate the failure to figure out was wrong, so Team Shatter
(the biggest, strongest hammer-bot in the competition) took their robot to the test box to try and break a disk.
They took the steel to the nearby build space of Team Chomp
, who stayed up all night on their waterjet to cut new disks (the new disks worked well, by the way.)
After the season, they still didn't know for sure what the cause was, so they worked with Team Hypershock
to create a dummy test robot, modeled after the very durable robot (and future 2022 champs) Tantrum
, they could test the old disks on. They then sent the broken disks to a materials science lab run by a friend of the captain of Team Tantrum to perform materials analysis.
Many of these teams had fought Witch Doctor in the past, others would fight them in the future. But that doesn't matter - in robot combat, everyone is friends outside the box.
Every year there are of course rookie bots competing for the first time. Sometimes from veteran teams and builders, such as last year's Blip
(from the creators of Tantrum), or this year's RIPperoni
, from former members of the teams behind Uppercut
, but just as often from new builders, at least new to heavyweight (almost nobody starts out with with the robots that can cost as much as a new car.)
One of these 'new-to-heavyweight' rookies last year was Riptide
, captained by Ethan Kurtz (the guy with the "you know I had to do it to em" pose.) Ethan had found a good amount of success previously with the beetleweight Rival
, and Riptide was basically Rival writ 80 times bigger. Riptide had a pretty good first season, winning 2 out of their 3 qualifying fights and making it to the quarterfinals before losing to the extremely good SawBlaze
No real controversy, aside from a false start and early hit on HUGE
in their first fight - written off as "I'm fighting a heavyweight on Battlebots for the first time" nerves, no hard feelings from anyone, not even HUGE. They also gave fan-favorite (formerly) indestructible brick Duck!
such a bad thrashing that Duck! permanently retired after that fight (Duck! was having a bad year anyway, that fight was just the icing on the cake.)
Their success led to them co-winning Rookie of the Year alongside Glitch
, who won an amazing 7 fights in a row, a feat only done before by 3-time championship winner and undisputed GOAT Bite Force
(Glitch had to bow out of the tournament because their bot had taken irreparable damage despite the victories, but it's possible they could have extended it even further.) Riptide became well known for Ethan screaming "LET'S GO!" (or sometimes, "LET'S F------ GO"!", giving the censors a bit of a workout and annoying production) after big wins.
So coming into season 8, their sophomore year, hopes are high for Riptide and people want to see this breakout star do well, right? After all, there's no big controversy in their funding or anything, is there?
Stan is the bald dude next to Ethan in the team picture. He's Ethan's dad, and also one of the main sponsors for the team through his company BeCourageous. Where did Stan Kurtz get his money to sponsor a big team? Well, he once had a company named RevitaPOP. RevitaPOP made vitamin B12 lollipops. If you know anything about 'alternative medicine,' this is where you say "oh no."
Stan Kurtz was once upon a time the president of Generation Rescue. Yes, that Generation Rescue
, the Jenny McCarthy 'vaccines-cause-autism' one. He was instrumental in getting the 'movement' off the ground in the first place - I even seem to recall seeing a link to a talk he did where he said he was backstage for McCarthy's interview with Larry King, but I'm not about to sift through hours of his horrid talks and speeches to find it.
Stan Kurtz sold lollipops that he claimed cured autism, autism that he and his organization claimed was caused by vaccines. In fact, he claimed they even cured his son Ethan's autism! Remember this when you read about Ethan's behavior - it's not an excuse, but "autistic but prevented from going to any kind of therapy or anything because it would make his dad look like a liar" is certainly an explanation.
Let me divest into opinion for a sec. Stan Kurtz is evil. There is a direct line between the actions of Stan Kurtz promoting vaccine denalism and snake oil cures, and dead children. Fuck Stan Kurtz. Every other problem with Team Riptide could be overlooked if they did not have this dude as their primary sponsor (which necessarily would require replacing Ethan as captain, because you can't separate him from his dad financially.) Okay, back to the writeup.
But put a pin in "Riptide's captain and his dad are antivaxxers" - it's a surprise tool that will help us later.
Riptide in WC7
Fight 1: Glitch
Aside from that, people didn't have that much of an opinion on Riptide going in to WC7 (and even that wasn't too widely known until partway through the season.) Generally, there was a feeling of "let's see if they can keep it up" - often a lot of very promising rookie bots have weak second seasons. They started the season fighting Glitch, to see who was truly better. One hit, weapon-on-weapon, and Glitch fucking died. Upside down, weapon not spinning, no way to self-right.
Team Glitch asked Riptide to hit them again try to flip them back over, maybe knock some life back into the bot. Not an uncommon thing, but sometimes it backfires. Riptide did, launched Glitch across the box, and now Glitch was super
-dead. Instant, extremely decisive knockout for Riptide. No drama yet.
Fight 2: MaD CatTer
Now on to the second fight. This one was against MaD CatTer
, consisting of community college professor Martin Mason (goatee in the middle) and his students. Martin Mason is known for his intentionally cheesebally and over-the-top Macho Man imitation/homage, with lots of pointing at the camera and saying "Oh yeah!" Also by all regards the nicest man on planet Earth and one of the most beloved figures in combat robotics.
Of note is MaD CatTer's driver, Calvin Iba (guy beneath Martin's pointing hand.) Calvin Iba is one of the few builders better known for his smaller robot - his robot Lynx
is the winningest beetleweight of all time, with an incredible 11
tournament wins, 8 undefeated, and an overall record of 86-11 as of December 2022 (and several events since then, but I can't find overall fight records of those events.) Now, Lynx is a very similar design to Rival (and therefore Riptide) - Lynx predates Rival by a few months, but the design is relatively generic and common at lower weight classes so it's not exactly plagarism.
This is relevant because Battlebots production tried to stir up drama, painting Calvin as angry that Ethan copied his bot and scaled it up to 250lb before Calvin could himself. For what it's worth Calvin did play into it a bit (he brought Lynx to the fight), but by all regards there aren't really any serious hard feelings about that. "Beater bars" (the weapon style of Riptide/Lynx/Rival) predate all three bots. Worth noting that Rival lost to Lynx
in a brutal slugfest in the semifinals match of NHRL a few years ago, so maybe Ethan had a bit of a revenge arc more than anything.
On to the fight. MaD CatTer is a pretty serious bot - not most people's favorite to win it all, but a 'serious contender for semifinals' kind of bot - so nobody knew how this would go. It was back and forth for... about 10 seconds, then Riptide got one good hit and did not let up. MaD CatTer got taken apart like they never had before, left a smoking mess, stuck sideways against the arena wall
, knocked out within a minute. Riptide then drove around a bit and punted pieces of MaD CatTer around the box, which got them a warning from the ref for being unsafe and for doing unnecessary damage to perfectly salvageable components of MaD CatTer. The team apologized later for that, saying they wouldn't do it again. Remember that.
Okay, two rapid knockouts against serious bots. Riptide is definitely not suffering from the sophomore curse. But in the post-fight interview, we did get a little taste of Ethan being a bit of a jerk - basically dismissed Calvin/Lynx as worse Riptide, and put his hand over Martin's mouth
(without Martin's permission) as a way of saying "shut up wrestler man!" Could have been funny, but it came across as somewhat mean-spirited and Martin clearly was not cool with it (and Martin Mason is not a sore loser - he spends almost every post-fight interview gushing about how good the other robot is, even if MaD CatTer loses.) Production asked Calvin what he thought, and he said (while holding Lynx) "well, I designed this robot to be unbeatable, it's a great robot to base it off of. Good job." Good comeback.
Fight 3: Captain Shrederator Captain Shrederator
is a longtime veteran, being one of the few robots (alongside Witch Doctor, Hypershock, and Lock-Jaw
) who has competed in all 7 seasons of the reboot. And they've competed for even longer - under various names and throughout various small tweaks, Captain Shrederator is basically the same robot as Phrizbee
, from original Battlebots Season 3.0 in 2001. They're not exactly good
by any modern standard, to be honest, but they're fun and an institution of the show. Worth noting that leading up to this fight, Nick Nave (son of Shrederator captain Brian Nave and a member of the team) had been hinting at possible controversy around this fight for a few weeks beforehand on the subreddit, so people were ready for some shit.
So going in, everyone expects Riptide to win. Here's a bot that made MaD CatTer look like a middleweight, versus a team with, at the time, a 6-18 career record. Riptide can't be complacent because even Shrederator can do some damage if you let it (by some metrics, Shrederator may have the most powerful weapon in the competition), but it's their fight to lose. Ethan Kurtz explains his strategy in an interview before the fight - get some big hits that flip Shrederator over. Once they're upside-down, they can't self-right and they'll be counted out. Makes sense, a solid, quick, safe, easy way to win. Well, watch the fight here if you can
If you can't, I will summarize: It starts off with Shrederator dodging Riptide and spinning up, until eventually Riptide gets a solid hit that breaks a piece of Shrederator's shell off and destabilizes them. One more big hit from Riptide and Shrederator lands upside-down - it's over. Well, no. Riptide then goes in and hits them again before they can be counted out. And again. And again. And again. At this point Shrederator is basically completely dead, but it's still able to spin. Shrederator's team calls over to Riptide "yo, stop it we're dead already." Riptide hits Shrederator again. Riptide's weapon operator tells Ethan to hit him again. And so he does. And one more time, as sparks fly out of Shrederator's pulverized electronics. Riptide leaves Shrederator dead on the floor, as they go and, you guessed it, punt shrapnel around the box. At this point the referee has to physically take the controller from Ethan (while the rest of team Riptide tries to stop the ref.)
Of course this is a KO for Riptide, but in doing so they did around $10,000 worth of extra, unnecessary damage to Shrederator, and almost the entire bot had to be thrown out and rebuilt from spares. Riptide was not apologetic (and in fact later Ethan would gloat to the camera over how Team Shrederator hadn't even tried to rebuild their bot.) No members of Team Riptide helped Shrederator rebuild either, though one did offer. (It wasn't Ethan, Stan, or the weapon operator Sid.)
To say this was controversial to the community would be lying. Controversy requires some argument or debate. There was none - everyone
thought Riptide went way too far. Riptide later tried to say "we interpreted their spinning as intent to keep fighting, and we couldn't hear them asking us to stop." Which was seen by most of the community as a load of crap, since Ethan had said to the camera that he didn't need to do those late hits just before the fight, and teams are bantering with each other in fights all the time. Riptide was formally warned by the ref again for this fight.
At this point, the editors I guess realized that controversy sells. In almost every remaining episode of the season, even ones where Riptide didn't fight, they had some clip of Riptide, or Ethan, or something else to rub in "these guys are really mean and have a good bot, wHaT iF tHeY wIn???" Very much a 'whenver Riptide's not on screen, all the other robots should be asking "Where's Riptide?"
' situation. It got old very fast (read: instantly.)
Fight 4: Black Dragon
You want to talk about beloved teams, you have to mention Black Dragon
. This Brazilian team is known for two things - their plush duck, which they won in a claw machine the first time they came to the US for a competition and have kept as a good luck charm ever since, and their durability - they had gone a near-record 24 matches without ever getting knocked out, winning all of those fights or losing by judge's decision. Leading up to this fight, Battlebots kept having segments showing how Black Dragon had almost surpassed Bite Force for the "most fights without a KO" streak (Bite Force was never KO'd in its entire 4-season career, going 26-1 with 1 lost JD.) Of course, then they had to fight Riptide.
This fight was probably the least controversial Riptide fight of the season - you can watch it here
. Riptide went in and did not let up, unrelenting, leading to the Brazilian bot suffering their first ever KO in under a minute. Riptide was actually pretty chill in the post-fight interview, very respectful towards Black Dragon - I guess that ref warning stuck. For now. With that, Riptide advanced to 4-0 in the qualifiers, and ended up securing themselves the #2 overall seed (behind the undefeated Brazilian monster Minotaur
, a favorite to win it all every season and the season 3 runner-up.)
Round of 32: Shatter
For those who don't know, Battlebots has a series of qualifying fights (this year, 4 fights per bot) to determine, out of the contenders (50 this year), which 32 get to compete in the tournament for the Giant Nut, and where they will be seeded. As the #2 seed, Riptide got to fight the #31 seed - hammer-bot Shatter, who you saw earlier helping Witch Doctor. Now, let me not mince words - Shatter was fucked. To paraphrase a comment I saw, "If Shatter drives like a god, gets the most perfect hammer shots ever, and in general is the best a hammer has ever looked in the history of hammers... they will still lose." There was no way Shatter could ever, ever
win, barring some kind of catastrophic self-induced failure from Riptide. But damn it, Shatter captain Adam Wrigley was sure as hell going to try.
Now, for more info, the bots have rules that govern what you can do. There's a lot, but 2 are relevant - strict 250 lb weight limit, and the tip speed of a spinning weapon cannot exceed 250 mph. Bots are weighed before each fight to confirm the weight limit, and all bots with spinners have to do tip speed tests in the test box. After the weigh-in, you cannot modify or work on your bot in any way without the approval of production and safety. Not for anything. Maybe a sticker if you want.
So when a Shatter team member found Riptide working on their bot
in the tunnel leading from the pits just before the fight, questions were had, and team Shatter demanded Riptide be reweighed and tip speed retested (there were rumors in the pits that they were spinning faster than 250mph.) The team later explained they were attaching a plastic hammer to the robot to mimic Shatter (teams doing funny decorative mods to their bot to mimic the other bot is a longstanding tradition.) All evidence seemed to point to that being the case, so nobody thinks they were lying about it, but it still warranted a reweigh. My opinion - that's fine, but tell production. If people think you're going to do something illegal, and you do something legal but in a way that looks illegal, don't be surprised when people think you're doing something illegal.
I will note that the show made a big deal out of how when Riptide was weighed before they were 'caught,' they weighed in at 250 lb, and the re-weighing said they were 248. There was some concern from Shatter about that, not helped by Stan Kurtz being kind of smug back to them. In response to one Shatter member asking "Why is it 248 now and 250 before?", Stan responded "You're right, there's something wrong. We made it lighter." Now, the thing with this is that there are multiple scales, they're not extremely precise, and if anyone has ever worked with industrial scales before you know how easily they come out of calibration. Some builders have said that whether or not the AC was on could add a pound of weight from the airflow. The "250lb" scale was not the same as the "248lb" scale as well. Generally, nobody really
thinks there is something up with the weight, but working on the bot post-weigh-in absolutely warrants a reweigh, no matter who it is.
Riptide complained a lot about it, to the point where the word "whiney" comes to mind. You messed up, teams are meant to tell production before they add decorative stuff and you didn't, so you need to be reweighed. You've already pissed people off in the past so don't be surprised when they give you a bit more scrutiny. Take your lumps, apologize, act like adults, and maybe people will give you the benefit of the doubt next time. Instead, there was a lot of "oh boo is me, we're being discriminated against" - a direct quote from Ethan is "their paranoia is affecting our performance, I think it's really uncool that they did this." Granted, if the scale drifted the other way and they had to lose 2lb of armor to satisfy the arbitrary scale drift, I would get it more, but as it is they just look, well, whiney.
At this time, unbeknownst to anyone until they revealed it on a livestream, Team Whyachi (the team behind the powerful flipper Hydra
, engine of (self-)destruction Fusion
, and Comedy Central-era legend Son of Whyachi
, who had the pit next to Riptide, was asked by production to put a spy camera up to make sure everything was above board. Allegedly they also began doing analysis of the audio and video of the actual fights, to make sure teams (read: one team) weren't cheating and spinning faster than the "maximum speed" they did in the test box.
However, aside from the (explainable, acceptable) scale drift, Riptide was not found to be cheating with tip speed or anything else. Shatter accepted this without complaint - they just wanted to be sure. So, that's out of the way. Ethan basically said "they are paranoid and are trying to ruin us so we will crush them" - fair enough, I suppose. Here's the fight
(note: this video includes the entire 'weigh-in' drama before the fight if you want to watch it instead of just reading about it.) For what it's worth, Shatter lasted longer than anyone yet against Riptide - almost 2 minutes - but it went the way everyone expected. The most unexpected thing was in the post-fight, where Ethan basically said "Adam is a paranoid loser" (alongside, allegedly, some more personal insults that got cut), then went in for a "sporting" handshake. Unsurprisingly, Adam refused it.
Now, Adam is basically the "union rep" for the builders - he's the guy chosen (by the builders) to represent them when Battlebots is thinking about changing the rules. He is a very widely respected guy and is by all accounts very sporting and nice. So when you've pissed him off enough that he refuses the handshake (only the second refused handshake in modern Battlebots history, as far as I am aware), you know you fucked up. But either way, Riptide is on to the round of 16.
Round of 16: Hypershock
You saw Hypershock earlier. They're quite good - definitely a contender, though generally not going to be anyone's main pick to win it all. This year, they were the #18 seed after a rough set of qualifiers, fighting 2021 champs End Game
, 2021 runner-up Whiplash
, perennial contender SawBlaze, and the confusingly fast Claw Viper
(seriously watch this
, look how fast that boy is.) But after a solid win over #15 seed Lucky
, they were on to the round of 16.
When I say Hypershock is a fan favorite, I mean they are the
fan favorite - between their iconic style, aggressive driving, and captain Will Bales's humor and charisma, it's probably not wrong to say Hypershock is the most popular bot and team around. People love Hypershock, and people don't love Riptide, so this fight had a lot of "save us, O-Will Bales Kenobi, you're our only hope" energy with the community. Leading up to this, Will said in an interview that Riptide was good, but every team can't be good forever, and that someday Ethan will experience, in Will's words, a "humbling event."
But Hypershock wasn't the odds-on favorite here - Will Bales's flashy driving tends to lead to errors, and against something as nasty as Riptide, any error is death. The full fight isn't uploaded, but here's a clip
of the post-fight highlight reel. Will started out doing a 'box rush' (charging straight at the other bot as soon as the fight starts), only to attempt to dodge to the side. Unfortunately, this led to him powersliding directly into Riptide's weapon, losing a wheel, and getting flipped over.
Now, the thing with vertical spinners in Battlebots is they spin 'up' - this means that the outer side goes up and the inner side goes down, so you can brace your own bot against the floor and send the other one flying. Now Hypershock is upside down, effectively spinning 'down,' so the energy from hits pushes the other bot down and themselves up. Riptide is spinning 'up' as normal. Both of these are extremely powerful weapons. Both want to send Hypershock into the air. So what happens when they collide? The energy of both weapons goes into sending Hypershock flying
up over 25 feet and slamming into the ceiling of the Battlebox. Remember that that thing weighs 250 pounds. To quote Will in the post-fight interview, "nobody has ever been hit like that before." Much to the chagrin of Hydra captain Jake Ewert, who had the goal of being the first-ever bot to send another bot into the ceiling (and came within inches in their fight against Deathroll
), Riptide made Battlebots history here.
The rest of the fight goes as expected at this point and Hypershock is KO'd, with Riptide moving into the quarterfinals. Sorry Will, you aren't the humbling event this time.
It's the final episode of the season - the quarterfinals, semifinals, and finals are all in one episode. People are spooked because Riptide is a incredible, powerful bot built and driven by shitty people, and nobody wants them to win but they might. But to go any further, they have to beat Copperhead.
. This snake-themed bot is probably best known for getting a new captain almost every year, and this year it's Luke Quintal in charge for his first time. They just came off of an insanely dominant upset
over 2021 champs End Game.
Luke has said that he was too focused on Copperhead to pay attention to the controversy, so he became aware of it when, leading up to this fight, builders kept coming up to him and whispering in his hear "dude, you have to beat Riptide. You have
to beat them. You might be our last hope." He's just a first-year captain/driver, with the oldest bot in the competition (Copperhead has had the same two frames for its entire 4-year career - this is the longest any frame has competed in the history of modern Battlebots without replacement), who's had to have back-to-back fights against rookie of the year Ripperoni, 2018 Most Destructive winner ROTATOЯ
, and End Game. No pressure.
Now, people have tried ways to beat Riptide. You can't just tank their hits with a durable bot (Black Dragon.) You can't outdrive them with fancy footwork (Hypershock.) But something nobody has been
insane enough to try is to go weapon-to-weapon on purpose
to break Riptide's weapon. Copperhead just went weapon-to-weapon with End Game and broke theirs. Copperhead is durable enough to take those huge hits Riptide deals out. So their strategy is to just go berserk until something breaks. But there's one major plot twist left.
Remember how I said the Kurtzes are anti-vaxxers? Well, the pandemic is still going on. In order to get into the pits, you either had to be double-vaxxed or
test negative every day. Well, there's no confirmation that Ethan was or was not vaxxed (but let's be real), but guess what? In the greatest Chekhov's gun in Battlebots history, he tested positive for COVID the day of the Copperhead fight. Riptide is out their driver for their biggest fight ever.
Other builders have confirmed that this was not the first or only time that team members had to miss days due to testing positive, but previous times either 1) did not involve the drivers, or 2) were in the qualifying rounds where fights could be postponed to following days. But neither was the case this time. Now, this is really a shitty situation for Riptide, and I do feel some degree of pity for them - what a thing to happen. But at the same time, lmao.
Riptide has to spend most of the day deciding who would drive the robot in the fight. The first person they ask? Jack Barker, driver of End Game and 2021 world champion. Jack agreed - can you blame him? Riptide is a hell of a bot, probably super fun to drive, and who knows, maybe he could win another Giant Nut. This got as far as Jack driving Riptide around the test box, before Luke found out and was like "hang on, no. He's not on your team. It's not fair that you can just go to the best driver in the pits and ask them to drive for you." Production agreed and hastily made a new rule where the driver has to be a member of the team. This all was not in the episode, and was only revealed by Luke Quintal after the season aired.
Team Riptide then deliberated between the several members of the team who might stand a chance. They eventually decide on team member Felix Jing, who's an award-winning Vex Robotics driver but has never driven a heavyweight before. Felix seemed to be a nice enough guy, and pretty humble. However, in the deliberations over who would drive, they lose time and are unable to replace their damaged weapon from the Hypershock fight.
So the fight. Riptide box rushes Copperhead, and the first weapon-to-weapon sends Copperhead flying. Luke's bot is still going, though, and goes in for another clash. This goes on for a few hits, until a massive hit sends Copperhead flying up and Riptide flying back - but when they come to, Copperhead's weapon is spinning... and Riptide's weapon is cracked down the middle
, exactly what Copperhead was aiming for.
Copperhead does not let up and keeps hitting, eventually ripping about a quarter of Riptide's weapon off completely
. However, the damage from the last 4 years of fighting added up. Those big hits from Riptide were the final straw - one of Copperhead's two wheels just falls off
. Copperhead can still move, just about, on just one wheel, but suddenly this fight got a lot closer. They keep hitting Riptide, but it goes to the judges after the full 3 minutes.
It's a split decision. Battlebots is scored on an 11-point system - 5 points for damage, and 3 each for aggression and control.
All three judges gave Copperhead three damage points to Riptide's two and Riptide two control points to Copperhead's one.
The first judge scored aggression 2-1 for Copperhead. 6-5 Copperhead.
The second judge scored aggression 2-1 for Riptide. 6-5 Riptide.
The third judge scored aggression 2-1 for the winner... Copperhead!
They did it, they saved the goddamn universe. We will not have to live in a world where the ur-anti-vaxxer and his dickhead kid win Battlebots. Everyone is fucking ecstatic. I cheered. The audience cheered. God probably cheered. And boy, did the pits cheer
- some builders have said this was the biggest celebration in the pits they had ever seen. Tim Rackley of Monsoon
(big lad with the flag) apparently was picking Luke up and carrying him around the pits cheering. Riptide is out
It's a pity Ethan wasn't there to experience his 'humbling event' in person, but it happened. He was there on a video call on a tablet - apparently, production did ask him how he felt and he went on a 5-minute rant about how the team was being forced to face jealousy and adversity because they had to get reweighed. The entire rant was cut from the episode that aired. I've seen conflicting reports if he said "if I was there we would have won," but it would be in character if he did.
Team Riptide used their appeal (each team gets one) to ask the judges to re-review the fight - they did (absolutely fair - you have nothing to lose, anyone should appeal in this situation), and as though to rub it in even more, the sole judge who ruled for Riptide changed his mind
about Riptide's aggression, giving Copperhead a unanimous JD. The saga of Riptide in WC7 ends here.
There was zero drama of any kind for the rest of the season (all 3 fights of it.) All the fights were great, clean fights between respected and respectful teams and robots. Copperhead ended up losing to HUGE
in the semi-finals - no surprise or shame there, HUGE
is designed to be invincible to bots like Copperhead. HUGE
ended up facing the mighty SawBlaze
in the finals, and in probably the best finals match in combat robotics history, SawBlaze
managed to win a unanimous JD, giving SawBlaze captain Jamison Go
the Giant Nut.
Literally zero people were unhappy with this - both Jamison
and HUGE captain Jonathan Schultz
are some of the nicest, most genuine, humble builders in the sport, and going into the finals it was very much a "no matter who wins we all win" kind of thing. Both bots are also "non-meta" - "meta" being the general form of bot that Hypershock, Riptide, Witch Doctor, Copperhead, etc. are, a compact vertical spinner - seasons 3-6 saw meta bots win both first place and runner-up, so people were excited to see a finals match with something new on both sides.
This was very recent, so no news if Riptide will be invited back next year. I would be shocked if they weren't, though - controversy sells, and regardless of how bad the team is, the robot is a killing machine that makes for incredible spectacles. There is allegedly a "sportsmanship rule" being added next year - it's a pity that something that has gone unspoken for decades has to codified in rules because of the actions of one team, but hopefully it will help. Between unethical sponsors, destroying fan favorite bots, being rude both inside and outside the box, cheating allegations, and a stunning lack of humility, Riptide really checked all the boxes in the 'bad guys' field this year.
I could say "the viewing community is willing to give Riptide one more chance to apologize and redeem themselves" but that would be a lie. For the most part, the subreddit, main Discord, etc. are all sick and tired of ever seeing the team again, and would love nothing more than for some cool, nice builder to hijack the bot so we can have cool robots and
cool people. I don't know how the builders feel - I imagine that they're probably not quite as vehemently opposed to the team on average, but there's probably no love lost.
I enjoyed writing this up quite a lot, because it really was a classic "villain defeats the main good guys, but then the underdog comes out of nowhere and saves the day" story. Also Battlebots rules. Feel free to ask me anything about the show, or any bots, or if you want to see some cool bots that I didn't include. And seriously, watch Battlebots, it's so good. Check out /battlebots
- it's the off-season, so the shitposts are about to get real good. I'm running out of characters so the collection of miscellaneous facts I originally had stuck on the end of this writeup is going to be in the comments.

🎉Hello fellow microscopists!🎉
In this post, you will find microbe identification guides curated by your friendly neighborhood moderators. We have combed the internet for the best, most amateur-friendly resources available! Our featured guides contain high quality, color photos of thousands of different microbes to make identification easier for you!
- Every microbe hunter should have this saved to their hard drive! This is the joint project of legendary ciliate biologist Dr. Wilhelm Foissner and biochemist and photographer Dr. Martin Kreutz. The majority of critters you find in fresh water will have exact or near matches among the 1082 figures in this book. Have it open while you're hunting and you'll become an ID-expert in no time!
- The website of Dr. Martin Kreutz - the principal photographer of the above book! Dr. Kreutz has created an incredible knowledge resource with stunning photos, descriptions, and anatomical annotations. His goal for the website is to continue and extend the work he and Dr. Foissner did in their aforementioned publication.
- The work of Michael Plewka. The website can be a little difficult to navigate, but the photos and information within is excellent.
- Maintained by UCSC's Kudela lab, this site has many examples of marine diatoms and flagellates, as well as some freshwater species.
Amoebae and Heliozoa
- Amoeboid organisms are some of the most poorly understood microbes. They are difficult to identify thanks to their ever-shifting structures and they span a wide range of taxonomic tree. Penard Labs seeks to further our understanding of these mysterious lifeforms.
- Ferry Siemensma's incredible website dedicated to amoeboid organisms. Of particular note is an extensive photo catalog of amoeba tests (shells). Ferry's Youtube channel also has hundreds of video clips of amoeboid organisms
- Foissner and Berger created this lengthy and intricate flowchart for identifying ciliates. Requires some practice to master!
- This website features an extensive list of diatom taxa covering 1074 species at the time of writing. You can search by morphology, but keep in mind that diatoms can look very different depending on their orientation. It might take some time to narrow your search!

2023.06.08 23:47 Lolmanmagee Auto Attack : the lost Murky build
60% of murkies i see go Q build, it is the most popular one (despite it being his WORST build IMO, but this is not about that)
30% of murkies i see go E build, it is less popular but starting to become respected as it is very legit survivability and macro potential.
10% of murkies have no idea what the builds are and just go silly stuff like time to krill into rejuv bubble and wrath of cod into making inky.
(not gonna count meme build as even though it is funny, i don't think anyone actually mains that build)
but there is one pretty solid build that i see NO ONE do and that is auto attack build. (0-3-3-0-3-1-0) on the surface it looks like just slime build but with a weird 4 and 7, but it is actually very different in how it plays.
ill walk you through the basic theory of the build because i think it is completely unknown for the most part.
the first talent in the build is living the dream, its actually really interesting as the spell power effect works as a hybrid between the macro of tuffer fish and the team fight of slime quest and in some niche ways it actually performs better than the other 2 in those regards despite it being a hybrid, on the macro side of things it can work the way tuffer fish does (W > Q > mostly cleared wave) once it hits 10% spell power, which is almost immediate and once you get to level 7 and being at 25% spell power you can simply (W > mostly cleared wave) as the spell damage is not reliant on you casting slime and around level 11 you get to where the W will even one shot warrior minions with the spell power which while you usually can spare to walk over and Q as well, it is nice and for macro it actually slightly surpasses tuffer fish as it effects not only your W but your Q as well, in testing i have found that this level 4 on giants it saves you 2 entire seconds compared to tuffer fish (and 5 seconds compared to slime quest...) its nothing as crazy as letting you solo a bruiser at 4, but it is still relevant how it is better.
as for its combat hybridization it gives you 74 bonus damage on Q > Q which is only half as much as with slime quests 125 but for several reasons, this is better than it appears and ill list them out sequentially.
1 : you get it immediately and don't need to complete slime quest; while living the dream *technically* has a quest, assuming you stay alive it will be fully complete by about the time you hit level 5 which is a incomparably better speed to slime time.
2 : it effects your W still; your W does not come into play in every fight but it his highly relevant for octo combos and the odd zoning puffer fish that gets ignored.
3 : it effects the damage of your FIRST Q; this does not matter often, but the spell power boost increases the damage of your first non boosted Q as well which is kinda niche but can sometimes come in clutch for a kill under towers where you can only get 1 slime off before they are in the gate.
4 : combos with time to krill; will talk about time to krill more specifically a bit later but suffice it to say increasing its damage by a straight 25% is solid.
(really like this 4, even outside aa build iv been trying to incorporate it into a hybrid E/AA build, which is kinda untested but has decent theory even if it has not worked that great in the few games i tried it)
but alas that is enough of the 4 now onto the 7 : time to krill.
the basic idea of this 7 is that you sacrifice some of the utility of kiting for just RAW damage and stickiness, and the damage is actually pretty good, baseline it makes each aa deal 28 bonus damage which is alright if not crazy and living the dream bumps it up to 35 bonus damage per AA and now your getting into the territory of having a actually pretty good auto attack instead of the normal murky AA which is basically useless but that you might as well use. (murky base AA is only 62 so 35 bonus damage is a more than 50% damage increase on it and puts it up with real hero AAs like mei or anub) but another highly relevant part of this 7 is the slow, not only is it straight up by 5% the superior of slime times slow (30% slow vs 35% max slow) which is great cause you did not pick that talent, but splitting your slow between your Q and the AA gives pretty good utility as for example if your Q is still on a 3 second cooldown but someone low hp walks past you, you have the opportunity to AA them twice and apply a slow that is good enough that you can chase them down (its a 14% slow for 2 aas) and apply your slime slow and then go in for a kill and even though the damage is done through a DOT which is not usually how you want to be dealing your damage, it generally does not bite you in the ass as it is not your primary damage source.
ill take this mid section to compare octo combos damage potential as 99% of the time octo is required even though i do love when im able to take march. (also i decided to differentiate on whether or not you get the slime off after the combo as even though you usually can, you sometimes cant and its not really part of the true combo) [the combo is Q > W > R if you dont play murky and have read this far along for whatever reason]
in Q build (0-1-1-2-3-1) (Q build can tbh take slime AA or fish oil so ill list both those variants)
the combo deals : 1045 damage (1451 with second slime)
in Q build 2 (0-1-1-2-3-2)
the combo deals : 1451 damage (1969 with second slime)
in E build (0-2-2-2-1-2)
the combo deals : 1822 damage (2103 with second slime)
in AA build (0-3-3-2-3-1)
the combo deals : 1165 damage (1657 with second slime)
as you can see E build octo is still king and AA build octo is actually kinda middling, dealing less damage than Q build that goes fish oil, but i think it was important to discuss this with science numbers instead of vague statements. (although AA build will often get a bit more damage out just due to there usually being time to krill stacks on the target and the general sticky playstyle)
i don't think i need to explain fish tank, it works just the same as in Q build the only difference is AA build does not kite as much so life steal is even more important. (even though Q build "technically" gets 15~more life steal from their Q, in reality this just almost never matters, if anything AA build boosting W life steal matters sometimes vs anti heal)
16 is when the build really comes into its own just like in any murky build, if you have played Q build variant 0 you known how powerful this 16s playstyle is, but in AA build it is even better; kinda hard to describe but time to krill + slime AA deals substantial damage;
if you dont mind shameless self promotion here is a clip of me using the build at 16. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YNgHx1a_sOY
you can see me krillin the kharizam and dealing massive damage with slime AA 16 and then later the raw damage of the build allowed me to kill a full hp zuljin who was standing right next to his fort.
onto 20s; all of them are actually good in this build.
- big tuna kahuna is amazing if there is a nova or zera that one shots you before you can start life stealing vs them. (id even call it essential in that situation)
- making inky i feel is the most situational of them all as already few heroes can withstand you in a 1v1, but if you dont need more tank and the ult upgrades dont make sense in the matchup, you might as well pick it as it is more damage.
- and a shark too is actually really interesting as the spell power from living the dream 4 actually effects it and you can get pretty spicy kills with it as now the octo combo deals 2694 damage (3061 with second slime) which if you scroll back up to the octo comparisons section, is a EXTREME amount of damage relative to what you had before. (even though levels do corrupt it slightly, this test was of course at 20 while the others were at 16, but 4 levels does not double your spell power lmao)
- infinite murlocs is actually super crazy in this, march already deals surprising damage and again, the spell power from your 4 effects it which basically makes you have supreme god levels of damage while you are casting this; of course its only weakness is that you miss out on octo by getting march 10, which is just throwing in most comps.
now lastly i guess i should talk about its obvious Achilles heel, you lose the stacks on death; this is not as bad as it sounds as the stacks come back super quickly and if you are feeding to the absurd level that you consistently have below 25% spell power, that's a you problem; murky is super survivable, especially post 13. (if this is actually the case tho, just do E build until you get more comfortable it gives you basically get infinite survivability)
although it is annoying that you lose the spell power at kinda the worst time, as when you respawn you generally just super extended fight and want to return to laning; but its really not the end of the world to Q > W waves for a rotation and you get the stacks back pretty fast. (its only really bad if you die like a idiot at level 5~ then you lose alot of power and gotta Q> W > Q waves, but you should not really be doing team fights that early anyway unless its braxis)
TLDR ; the build is (0-3-3-0-3-1-0) its pretty good and people dont use it much, would recommend if your comfortable with murky.

Pics in order P220 Legion unfired XTEN 500rds P320 AXG Pro 500rds 1911 ES 1krds P938 Legion 3-400rds
The LGS said ALL Sig pistols come with some kind of wear like that from the factory. Calling bullshit. No other LGS has sold me a Sig looking like that.
With that, my other 4 Sig pistols say otherwise. Even my Sig rifles dont have that kknd of wear.
Also, I have a P220C SAO that the coating has worn off the top. It has several thousands rds through it though.
I get it, parts wear, but parts shouldnt be worn like that on a brand new gun. Am I being unreasonable to request they make it right?
2023.06.08 21:56 Leavemealoneplease57 Here we go again

Here we go again, over beef jerky this time. Guy decided to shoot an unarmed man that was outside of the gaststion after kicking him out for allegedly stealing a beef jerky. Shot the man in the forehead through a locked door. There is seriously something wrong with Detroit gas station clerks and boy do I have stories. The first an only shooting ive witnessed in my 25 years of life in Detroit was done by a gas station clerk. I was walking to the gas station one night and as I entered the parking lot the door flung open and the clerk ran out shooting at a man's back as the man ran away. The man he was shooting at was probably about 12 yards from the gas station already and this was a huge man, I'd say he weighed anywhere from 450-520lbs. I wouldn't even call it running, it was more of a fast wobble. Anyway, the gun jammed..it was a brand new .45 sig Sauer. The clerk picked up the shell casings and acted as if nothing happened, when I asked what the guy did his response was that the guy stole two sub sandwiches and a pop tart. Here's another story, same gas station but different clerk. I was there with my younger cousin buying some snacks and the clerk claimed that I short changed him. Everything was calm, I added up the total of everything I bought and discovered that he was the one that actually owed me. What he owed was literally just one penny but anyway my younger cousin then joking repeats me and says "yeah, you owe him"..the guy tells my little cousin to shut the fuck up. Now here's where I have to admit, my little cousin has anger issue and with him being a small guy and having a child at the age of 14 he absolutely hated to be treated like a kid so there was no way he could've let the guy just talk to him that way. My cousin replies and says "fuck you, I'm not a child, who the hell are you talking to?"..the guy doesn't say a word after that, he instantly turned around and reached under the counter and grabbed what seemed to be an Ak47 but I'm not sure because the barrel was tiny and if I'm not mistaken I believe the magazine was skinny like it shot .22 caliber. Anyway, he then proceeded to open the door thats used to get behind the counter and holds us at gun point while praying in Arabic. We didn't flinch a muscle or even try to run, we just looked at eachother in silence. He then went back behind the counter and told us to get the fuck out. The other clerk that worked their liked me (the guy that tried to kill the guy over sub sandwiches) and told me to just only come when he's there so one day after the incident I went to do a walk by and see who was working so I could get change to catch the bus. I saw that the crazy guy was working so I asked a stranger to get the change for me. The crazy guy saw me and called the police and you're not even going to believe this...the nut job called the police and said that I had a gun lol what the hell. I didn't know until I got to the bus stop and five police cars pulled up and told me that the clerk said I had a gun and they searched me and searched the whole area for about 30-45 minutes before they realized the call was bullshit and let me go. Know that I think about all this stuff, I really should have been calling the police on those guys. submitted by Leavemealoneplease57 to Detroit [link] [comments]

First impressions. This thing is great for extending the lead far and writhing small. I was also able to push fairly hard compared to a lot of other pencils. The diameter is almost identical to a Kuru Toga Advance Upgrade but it has a non-slip feel. I really like this one. The big con is that it is completely cylindrical with no clip and it was rolling all over the place. It’s on the lighter side.

2023.06.08 20:12 Efficient_Glass1698 Phone holder
Hello all, found a nice ac mount phone holder on thingiverse, and I want to adapt it so my iPad mini fits it along with my phone. It fits vertical but for long trips, it would be nice to have it sit horizontal to not watch Netflix and only have it on maps with my car, that has a built in GPS, my problem is I need to extend the arms of the holder about an inch. When I use prusaslicetinkercad/fusion360, it distorts the hole the arm clips into the mount at. This may be a dumb question from a very green rookie printer, but is there a way I could cut the module into 3 parts where the arm only gets extended? Thought questions and concerns are appreciated.

2023.06.08 16:59 sciguy11 Pretty sure I am somewhere in the ace spectrum
Long post. Trying to get some perspective on myself.
I (mid 30s male) was often called "asexual" during high school and my 20s.
Back then, it was more pejorative than descriptive, at least growing up. The label, also meant "complete absence of sexual desire", as there was no real "spectrum" back then.
I also have, at least compared to my perception of others, low-ish libido.
However, I always thought I could not
be asexual (based on the definition of "complete absence of") due to two major factors:
- I (male) am only attracted to women. Basically any romantic feelings or infatuation growing up was towards a female person so how could I be asexual? I equated this with heterosexuality apparently some feel that this is not necessarily the case.
- I am married and have sex with my wife periodically, and it is a pleasurable experience physically and emotionally. We were both virgins when we got married so that may also affect my perception of sexual interactions between people.
However, I am never "lost in passion" and am very aware of what's going on around me and am somewhat "technical", "mechanical" or "scripted" (I am thinking about angles and how to make it good for my wife). Even "making out" or foreplay feels very step-by-step for me (do this first, do this next, etc).
Obviously the physical sensations are good, but I feel like my brain is, again, being very "procedural". My wife has sometimes mentioned that "there isn't a checklist or fixed routine that you have to go through each time".
To elaborate, I never feel like my body is doing things impulsively (except maybe orgasm?). I am very aware of what of going on, and my brain goes through this sort of step by step process ("according to cosmo or askwomen
, she may like this. ok so she likes this, so do this. she likes this next, so the next step is this. she says do this tempo, so do this"). I never feel like I am letting my drive take over. It sometimes feels like a game of chess...
I know movies are not a good example, but many movies show people so entrenched in passion that they are tripping on things while making out, etc. Never happened with me.
On the contrary, things that seem to fit here:
- I can go weeks without sex. Only after about two or three weeks will my body feel like I "need" something. However, this just seems physical as I never felt the need to watch pornography or have visual stimuli. Again, my male (and female) peers found this odd.
- When masturbation was mentioned in health class in high school, my thought was, "That's weird. Why would anyone ever need to do that?". For a long time I also thought sex was only for procreation (how else are humans going to procreate naturally?). My peers found this odd as well.
- I never had "raging hardons" that people sometimes mention. I never had the urge to masturbate because I saw a beautiful woman. I seemed to be an exception here, too.
- Overall, my brain finds women attractive, but doesn't trigger much else physically, unless it's in the moment itself, and only with my wife. It also only seems to happen when we are actually in thy act. She could walk aroud the house in "sexy" clothing, and while I would surely like what I see, I wouldn't be constantly "in the mood". You know those short clips on tiktok or YouTube where a woman wears lingerie and walks into a room to "surprise" her husband or boyfriend, and the guy drops what he is doing and wants to start making out? I don't think that happens with me, unless I make myself do that (if that makes any sense).
- Never had erotic or sexual dreams or sexual daydreams. I can visualize things, sure, but I have to think about it, versus it "just coming to mind" , intrusively.
- Never understood my friends saying they "need" sex. I understand libido, but never understood needing sex.
- I don't think I could have a sexual interaction with anyone except my wife (basically, comitted relationship).
- Even when I had "crushes" I never thought about sex (except maybe "well, we will want to have kids", etc) and pretty much thought about having a relationship with care, emotion, hugging, travelling places together, going to a national park, having fun, etc.
- When we got married, we didn't have sex for a few months. Neither of us felt any pressure to do so and eventually did when we felt the time was right for us. People used to joke saying "control yourself" and "hopefully there are no honeymoon babies" and I was thinking "I mean, it can't be that difficult to hold back can it?"
- Some movies show a woman using her hands to "fan" herself when she see someone who she finds "hot". I don't think I have ever felt that way [or the male equivalent] since puberty.
- People mention things happening "in the heat of the moment". I don't think I have ever felt something like this.
- Related to the last point above. People mention cheating "by mistake" and "it just happened". I can rationally understand someone cheating on someone after developing a long relationship with someone else, but don't really understand when people say it happened "in the heat of the moment".
A few interactions that may help illustrate this more:
- When I was in college, a cheerleader friend sat next to me, extending her legs out. She then asked me how her (shaved/waxed) legs looked (look, I just got them waxed/shaved, what do you think?) running her hands across them. I said they looked nice and then got up and left. My point is that I didn't feel any arousal and actually forgot about this until I started writing this post.
- Another college friend expressed her feelings for me once. Among other things, she mentioned fantasizing about us being together sexually. For various unrelated reasons, I said I was not ready for a relationship, but I wondered about this part since I had never had sexual fantasies with anyone whom I was interested or infatuated with. Apparently, people do?
Sexy commercials don't "turn me on". AgainI can appreciate aesthetics, but I don't get "in the mood".
If I looked at a lingerie catalog, I would feel like "wow she is gorgeous". I would also feel this type of "gorgeous" is different than if I saw a handsome male model or even a beautiful woman in a business suit (with the latter being closer to the lingerie example but still quite different nonetheless). However in all cases, I would NOT feel "the blood moving", feel the need to masturbate, or feel the need to have sex with my wife.
At the same time, if I am with my wife and there is not much time pressure, we can have sex. As I mentioned earlier, while the physical sensations are good, it does feel somewhat procedural to me.
Anyways if you made it this far, what are your thoughts? Feel free to tell it how it is (trying not to have the reddit echo chamber stereotype lol)
