2023.06.09 07:21 TennisIsWeird Ben Simmons shooting with his wrong hand genuinely makes me angry

Prefacing this by stating that I’m not a Simmons, 76ers, or nets fan. I consider myself a casual and actually do not care about how any of these teams or this player does.
That said, Simmons shooting with what is quite obviously his wrong hand for like 6 years pisses me off. How uncoachable/how much of a daddy’s boy do you have to be to still be stubbornly making this easily fixable mistake so many years later? I say “easily fixable” because he CLEARLY shoots better with his right, and is CLEARLY uncomfortable using his left. It literally looks identical to me when I broke my right arm and tried to shoot left handed for 3 months.
Again, I have no stake in anything here, yet I struggle to put into words how irrationally angry this wrong-handed shooting situation makes me.
While I’ve thought this forever, what led me to post it was this video I came across today: https://youtu.be/8rzK174rLak
Like bro, I get the ambidextrous thing, but it’s not like you’re just writing right-handed. You literally throw your baseball passes right handed because you are naturally stronger and more coordinated from that side (!!!)
Is he a moron or just so overly influenced by his father that he refuses to “disrespect” his coaching or something?

2023.06.09 07:20 Master_Lions_Den [TotK] [SS] What if Hylia was Rauru’s and Sonia’s daughter?

They named the land Hyrule because they wanted it to be bright like the future for their daughter.
Then Zelda comes along, tells them of the evil of the demon king, brings a broken blade, and then they seal the demon king away.
Sonia dies, Rauru sacrificed himself, the sages were all dead, who leads hyrule now? Hylia.
Then Demise, the spirit of Ganondorf, comes from a crack in the ground to wreck the world. Hylia remembers a traveler named Zelda talk of a sword that seals the darkness, a hero, etc. she remembers that her father was the last of a people to come from the sky, so she sacrifices her Zonai blood to use a power of light given to her family by the three goddesses, the triforce, from her fathers bloodline.
She sends chunks of land to the sky, with all the people on them. She traps Demise, the demon king, on the surface. She then goes and uses her mothers bloodline and uses time powers to search all across time to find a hero- this is Link from skyward sword. He travels back in time to help her, he is the first Link.

2023.06.09 07:20 archythebird15 An ER dr. watched me have a stroke, misdiagnosed me, increased my pain for hours, then she was done with me. can i do anything?

I have always been open with all my drs. about my usage and feel its important. I do however regret telling the ER about it and i will explain why. I went to the ER for side/flank pain, vomiting, and speech issues. while alone in my room i started to vomiting and could feel my hands start tingling and the feeling kept going higher up my arms. I page the nurse in who gets the dr. in. I say " ting, ting, arms, up" oh shit, i cant talk right, im getting upset because i cant say whats going on. The dr. tells me to calm down because im just hyperventilating. I say " ting, up" as i realize that i suddenly have the hardest Elvis lip ever and its stuck. I say " face, ting, froze" The dr. asks about pot and how long i have smoked.i had already told the admitting nurse that i smoke. i tried to say 15 but im not even sure of the sound i made. the dr. then turns to the RN and tells him to give me adavan and capsaicin or capsin lotion. dr. tells me that i am sick because i smoke pot and the lotion will pull the pot toxins from my body.

2023.06.09 07:18 duckowucko [Long-Schall] Browder Administration and "Return" of the Business Plot? (1941)

[Long-Schall] Browder Administration and

35th President of the United States, Earl Russel Long (AFA-Communist)


Vice President: Upton Sinclair
Secretary of State: Theodore Green
Secretary of Treasury: Henry Morgenthau Jr.
Secretary of War: Henry Stimson
Attorney General: Earl Warren
Secretary of the Navy: Frank Knox
Secretary of the Interior: Harold Ickes
Secretary of Agriculture: Henry Wallace
Secretary of Commerce: Norman Thomas
Secretary of Labor: Frances Perkins
President Pro Tempore: Key Pittman (Democrat)
Speaker of the House: Everett Dirksen (Republican)
In a shocking turn of events, Earl Russel Browder became the first non-republican or non-democrat to win the White House since 1856. Despite his unique affiliation, he kept true to his campaign promise and organized a politically diverse Cabinet; though of course, heavily favoring interventionists. Former President Long had made it a point, however, to take as long as possible to move his stuff out as Browder began to move his stuff in.
Browder would get to work in his first few months in office, petitioning Congress and making several notable speeches over the radio, perhaps the most extensive use of which by a President so far. In March of 1941, the Lend-Lease Act would be passed with flying colors, allowing the supply of food, oil, and raw material to the allied nations alongside the Soviet Union. This was quickly followed by the Neutrality Act of 1941, which allowed for a "Cash and Carry" policy, which was disliked by the struggling British. Browder would also enforce official resource embargoes on Japan, Germany, Italy, and Vichy-France; the latter of which had officially joined the Axis during the interim after the election.
Domestically, President Browder would continue much of the existing policies of Huey Long and George Norris. However, Browder was able to push through the Corporate Revenue Act of 1941; raising taxes on all businesses classified as "Large" that did not produce a certain percentage of their profit for the Government, which in a way encouraged companies to pursue military contracts in new ships, planes, trucks, and tanks as Browder and his administration put into effect their military expansion program in July.
In the wake of a call for a "March on Washington" by African-American Leader, Asa Phillip Randolph, Browder would sign an executive order that would prohibit employment discrimination among defense contractors based on race, faith, and sex. Browder would also begin to allow larger amounts of European -namely Jewish- refugees into the nation with some convincing from Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau.
With rampant military and industrial expansion followed by sudden openings and closings of trade routes, the American economy took a massive shift, though definitely positive in these short few months, with unemployment dropping by a whole 1 percent, currently standing at around 10% and it appears to be dropping fast.

October Morning

In the early morning of October 2nd, 1941, President Earl Browder was leaving a Virginian hotel with Vice President Upton Sinclair and a few aids and bodyguards when a few youngsters that were recently sighted coming out of the local recruiter's office walked up to the group and opened fire with concealed revolvers.
As it stands, the health of President Browder or Vice President Upton Sinclair is unknown. However the President's bodyguard has confirmed the deaths of 5 of the 6 attackers, and it is suspected the sixth has been arrested. The identities and ages of the young men have not been released, and their motives are under question. However, theories that have previously been debunked have cropped up again in public circles; talking of Japanese or German infiltrators running the Government, or of a "Business Plot" previously revealed by the late U.S. Marine Smedley Butler in 1933 following the election of George Norris. Has the business plot returned after a Communist was elected? Have the Japanese infiltrated our Government? In the meantime, we can only hope the President and Vice President are alright.
Garner Administration (1933-1933)
Norris Administration (1933-1937)

2023.06.09 07:18 CursedHarrenhal A Guide to Jon Snow's friends & foes in the Night's Watch in TWOW (Spoilers Extended)

Im trying to predict what's gonna happen with everyone at Castle Black in TWOW. I have ideas, but one problem keeps coming up; we dont know how the brothers of the Night's Watch will respond to Jons murder.
I believe Jons murder will cause a lot of division in Castle Black; between the NW vs the Wildlings, the NW vs Mel & Selyse... but it will also cause division WITHIN the NW. Some seem to support Jon, others appear not to. For the majority of the NW, theres no indication one way or another. But I wanna know who's on which side, so heres what I've come up with so far:
- Ghost
- Dolorous Edd
- Hareth (Horse)
- Rory
- Satin
- Iron Emmet
- Leathers
- Jax
- Arron
- Emrick
- Pyp
- Grenn
- Toad
- Bowen Marsh
- Wick Whittlestick
- Othell Yarwyck
- Septon Cellador
- Alf of Runnymud
- Left Hand Lew
- Ser Alliser Thorne
- Mully
- Fulk, the Flea
This list only includes NW brothers who are still alive by the end of ADWD. It's hard to say who supports Jon and who doesn't with certainty. So let me give a brief explanation for each of these guys and why I think they will be either pro- or anti-Jon:
- Ghost - Obviously he's on Jon's side. He arguably IS Jon. And yes.. Ghost is a brother of the NW
- Samwell Tarly - No explanation needed. But Sam is far away, in Oldtown, so he's irrelevant to Castle Black in the TWOW opening
- Edd Tollett - No explanation needed. But Edd has been sent to Long Barrow along with Iron Emmett, so he isn't at Castle Black either.
- Hareth (Horse) - Horse is guarding Jon after the Shieldhall speech, right as the assassination is about to take place. If Jon trusts him enough to guard his life, this probably indicates Horse will stay loyal to Jon:
Horse and Rory fell in beside Jon as he left the Shieldhall. I should talk with Melisandre after I see the queen, he thought. If she could see a raven in a storm, she can find Ramsay Snow for me. Then he heard the shouting … and a roar so loud it seemed to shake the Wall. "That come from Hardin's Tower, m'lord," Horse reported. He might have said more, but the scream cut him off. (Jon XIII, ADWD)
- Rory - The same goes for Rory, he was with Horse guarding Jon as the assassination took place. I wouldn't be surprised if we learn in TWOW that Horse or Rory were killed in the assassination attempt. But if they survive they'll probably be Team Jon
Val, was Jon's first thought. But that was no woman's scream. That is a man in mortal agony. He broke into a run. Horse and Rory raced after him. "Is it wights?" asked Rory. Jon wondered. Could his corpses have escaped their chains? (Jon XIII, ADWD)
Jon saw the flash of naked steel a few yards away. His own bowmen nocked arrows to their strings. He turned in his saddle. "Rory. Quiet them." Rory lifted his great horn to his lips and blew. (Jon V, ADWD)
- Satin - Seems to be close with Jon. Is picked by Jon to go on missions. Jon defends Satins positions as his personal steward and squire after Edd. Satin is the only one of Jon's friends who doesn't get sent away to the Shadow Tower. Satin also adopts the old gods, indicating his closeness with Jon. Also it's clear the anti-Jon faction hates Satin. Satin probably has the most evidence of anyone to show he'll support Jon. Satin's whereabouts at the time of the assassination are not known
His friends laughed—Grenn, Toad, Satin, the whole lot of them. (Jon III, ADWD)
Septon Cellador spoke up. "This boy Satin. It's said you mean to make him your steward and squire, in Tollett's place. My lord, the boy's a whore … a … dare I say … a painted catamite from the brothels of Oldtown." And you are a drunk. "What he was in Oldtown is none of our concern. He's quick to learn and very clever. The other recruits started out despising him, but he won them over and made friends of them all. He's fearless in a fight and can even read and write after a fashion. He should be capable of fetching me my meals and saddling my horse, don't you think?" (Jon VIII, ADWD)
Whatever Satin may have done in Oldtown, he is our brother now, and he will be my squire. (Jon VIII, ADWD)
- Iron Emmett - He is picked to be the master-at-arms for Castle Black. He spars with Jon. He is selected for the mission to the weirwood in ADWD. There isnt solid proof he would support Jon, but he seems to be a prime candidate as an ally. He was sent to Long Barrow with Edd Tollett, so he isnt at Castle Black
- Leathers - Leathers almost certainly supports Jon. Leathers is a Wildling who became a brother of the NW. Jon makes him the master-at-arms after Emmett. The anti-Jon faction does not approve of Leathers appointment
"Is it true that you mean to replace Emmett with this savage Leathers as our master-at-arms? That is an office most oft reserved for knights, or rangers at the least." "Leathers is savage," Jon agreed mildly. "I can attest to that. I've tried him in the practice yard. He's as dangerous with a stone axe as most knights are with castle-forged steel. I grant you, he is not as patient as I'd like, and some of the boys are terrified of him … but that's not all for the bad. One day they'll find themselves in a real fight, and a certain familiarity with terror will serve them well." (Jon VIII, ADWD)
"How many men are enough?" he asked Leathers. "A hundred? Two hundred? Five hundred? A thousand?" (Jon XIII, ADWD)
- Jax - The same as Leathers. Jax is a Wildling who joins the NW. He isn't mentioned as often as Leathers, but given that Jon's murderers were in large part motivated by Jon's relationship with the Wildlings, I imagine any Wildling NW-brother will have to be pro-Jon
- Arron & Emrick - Two brothers from Fair Isle who are recruited by Jon. They both swear their oaths before the Weirwoods, even though they were born following the Faith of the Seven. There is little information about them, but what little we have seems to suggest they may be pro-Jon
- Pyp, Grenn & Toad - These guys are Jon's friends who he sends away to the Shadow Tower. They are certainly pro-Jon, but they aren't nearby enough to matter
- Bowen Marsh - Stabbed Jon
- Wick Whittlestick - Tried to slash Jon's throat
- Othell Yarwyck - The First Builder of the NW. He is one of the leaders who is increasingly antagonistic towards Jon leading up to the assassination. He was seen at the Shieldhall meeting, standing near Bowen Marsh. Almost persuaded to support Janos Slynt for Lord Commander in ASOS. He doesn't attend the Thenn-Karstark wedding
As for Borroq, Othell Yarwyck claimed the woods north of Stonedoor were full of wild boars. Who was to say the skinchanger would not make his own pig army? (Jon XIII, ADWD)
But others had chosen to absent themselves to show their disapproval. Othell Yarwyck and Bowen Marsh were amongst the missing (Jon X, ADWD)
"I summoned you to make plans for the relief of Hardhome," Jon Snow began. "Thousands of the free folk are gathered there, trapped and starving, and we have had reports of dead things in the wood." To his left he saw Marsh and Yarwyck. (Jon XIII, ADWD)
- Septon Cellador - A part of the council that becomes increasingly antagonistic towards Jon's command. There's not a lot of evidence to support him being anti-Jon, except he hates the Wildlings and assoiactes with the anti-Jon faction
"These are godless savages," said Septon Cellador. "Even in the south the treachery of wildlings is renowned." (Jon XI, ADWD)
- Alf, of Runnymudd - Alf appears to be heartbroken when Garth is killed by the Wildlings. Some have theorized this indicates Alf and Garth may have had a gay relationship, but there is no other evidence for this. Alf is seen hanging with Bowen Marsh during the Shieldhall meeting. He likely blames Jon for the death of Garth. He is one NW brother I feel certain hates Jon
"Who is it?" asked Owen the Oaf. "Not Dywen, is it?" "Nor Garth," said the queen's man she knew as Alf of Runnymudd, one of the first to exchange his seven false gods for the truth of R'hllor. "Garth's too clever for them wildlings." "How many?" Mully asked. "Three," Jon told them. "Black Jack, Hairy Hal, and Garth." Alf of Runnymudd let out a howl loud enough to wake sleepers in the Shadow Tower. "Put him to bed and get some mulled wine into him," Jon told Three-Finger Hobb. (Melisandre I, ADWD)
Othell was surrounded by his builders, whilst Bowen had Wick Whittlestick, Left Hand Lew, and Alf of Runnymudd beside him (Jon XIII, ADWD)
- Lefthand Lew - There is no evidence for him being anti-Jon... except he is standing with Bowen Marsh and the anti-Jon faction during the Shieldhall speech. I have no idea what his beef with Jon is, but I feel certain he is with Marsh
Othell was surrounded by his builders, whilst Bowen had Wick Whittlestick, Left Hand Lew, and Alf of Runnymudd beside him (Jon XIII, ADWD)
- Mully & Fulk, the Flea - Right before the Shieldhall meeting, Jon is told by Mully and Flea that Ghost is acting aggressively. This is obviously a warning that Jon is surrounded by enemies who will try to kill him. But it could additionally indicate that Mully and Fulk the Flea are specifically Jon's enemies. This is the only potential hint I could find that might suggest Mully & Fulk are on either side
"That'd be sweet, m'lord," said Fulk the Flea, "but your wolf's in no mood for company today." Mully agreed. "He tried to take a bite o' me, he did." "Ghost?" Jon was shocked.
- Spare Boot, Kegs, Halder, & Albett - These men are part of part of Othells builders. The builders are seen with Othell and Bowen Marsh in the Shieldhall
- Ser Alliser Thorne - Alliser hates Jon, but he isn't at Castle Black right now. Although I predict Ser Alliser will return and maybe even be elected new Lord Commander in the beginning of TWOW, some theorize he may even seek justice against Jon's conspirators
Please tell me what you think of my list! I'd like to hear arguments about why should anyone be added or removed from either list?

2023.06.09 07:18 degeaku 30M; 26F - 6 months into marriage

I (30M) married to Wife 26, she has really toxic parents. Father has been abusive and used to beat up her mom. Kind of broke all the ties with all their folks. I mean these are people who are incapable of holding relationship with any people. They literally live isolation with hardly any friends or relatives
Before getting married she seemed to be aware of this issue and said she will draw clear boundaries between me and her parents
However after wedding she is forcing me to meet them and visit them. And her mom's trying to make decisions for us now.
I got into heated argument and told her how they have messed up every possible relationship and they are trying to ruin their daughters marriage.
What surprises me is she doesn't stand with me in this whole drama, she is siding with her mom saying she brought her up and her mom's more important for her.
Just for context, we have add no fights in our relationship except when her parents try to meddle with things
My in-laws just remind me of chaos, everytime I have to deal with them I get anxious and I dread these meets with them. Every meeting ends up with them finding a fault in me or my family or how we have move away from my parents. Whereas my parents have absolutely no say in our relationship.
I have no idea how to deal with this. What should I tell my wife I have told her several times to protect me from her parents and not put me in awkward position. But she is instead telling that she'll leave the relationship if I don't make terms.
How do I deal with this?

2023.06.09 07:18 Tiny-Student3254 Wife has been served for unpaid tax while visiting her home country. She has not lived there for 9 years.

So. My wife of 1 year, partner since 2012 has just been served a tax bill at her father's home address in Poland. It is addressed to her in her Maiden nameand appears to have been due since September 2019. It does not state what the tax is for only an article number but no explanation. There is also a brief threat of further legal action if she does not pay in 7 days. We will be back in the UK by then. While she is still a Polish citizen she has not lived nor worked in Poland since 2010. How seriously do we need to take this? I have no idea how any of this works in Poland and neither does my wife or her father. Its also worth noting that the tax is for 180zl, not a huge amount of money and we could pay it off before we go but it seems unreasonable that she be taxed at all. Sorry that I don't have a lot to go on but if anyone with an understanding of the Polish tax system could give me an idea of what this is all about I'd greatly appreciate it.
edit It was a case of mistaken identity. Same name different addresses. Clerical error.

2023.06.09 07:16 MacMillerfan23 I have watched that Roadrunner documentary so many times.

I used to watch No reservations with my father as a kid. He loved Anthony’s shows and I have very found memory’s of being a kid and staying up late watching it with him. He didn’t even care about celebrities but Anthony was an exception. Since I lost my Dad years ago and Bourdain passed, the Roadrunner documentary really hits home for me. I struggle a lot with depression and a bit with suicidal thoughts. That documentary was there to comfort me in a weird way. I felt like I could relate to him and he reminds me of my Dad. The documentary is also a reminder of someone who was so inspiring, yet so imperfect like everyone else. It helps knowing that someone even in his position in life, was still struggling like everyone else. It hurts still and it’s sad, but in a way the documentary makes the pain more bearable. Almost comforting. I miss my Dad and I wish I could go back in time and watch No Reservations with him in front of the TV late at night. Irreplaceable memories. It still hurts.

2023.06.09 07:15 lorem_ipsum_H So, it's been a heck of a year, but I look back and I'm astonished by how much I've grown.

CW: Abuse and Trauma and stuff. I promise this post has a happy ending. Approximately 365ish days ago, my dad and I were talking about politics. My father was and still is a very conservative man, in keeping with the rest of my family. I was and still am significantly more progressive than him. In some fashion or another, I asked him how he could conscience his uncritical support for republican establishment after the awful things they had been doing to trans and queer people in various places across the U.S. and elsewhere. He asked me a question I was not prepared for.
"Why do you care so much? Are you gay or something?"
Let's back up a little. I'm Vanessa. I'm 19, almost 20. I'm a nonbinary transgender woman and I use she/her pronouns. I've known I was trans, definitively, since I was 17. Up until my dad asked me that question, though? Nobody in my family really had any clue. I owned exactly one dress, which I concealed in the depths of an old hiking backpack. I didn't even buy the thing - I sent the measurements to a friend and she bought it for me. I also had one of those jokey catgirl maid outfits that people usually buy as a bit, but it didn't fit me very well (I'm 6'3" and change, broad shoulders, big ribcage, yadda yadda). Needless to say, I'd worked very hard to keep the details of my identity hidden from my family - a staunch intergenerational clan of members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, a fundamentalist Christian sect known more colloquially as "Mormons." I'll spare you the intimate details of their doctrine here, but, they're not big on the queers.

Despite my efforts, here I was. Sitting on the edge of a bunk bed, leaning forward to keep my head from scraping the underside of my brother's upper bunk, utterly silent in the face of my father's aforementioned question. Now, I want it to be known that I am an accomplished liar. My skills in subterfuge were not to blame for what happened next. I was simply so tired and so frustrated with the way of the world that I simply answered "Yes, dad. I'm a trans girl."
I begged my dad not to tell anyone else. He ignored me, telling my mother near instantly. The next two weeks were, to say the least, pretty hellish. At first my parents wanted to conceal my identity from my siblings - they didn't want me "spreading" it or "indoctrinating" them, most notably the younger brother with which I shared a room. But that didn't stop us from having nightly arguments well into the night where I would plead with them to look past their implicit biases and religious dogma, bombarding them with study after study to no avail. One particularly bad night, my mom called me the T-slur, and when I pointed it out she said that I had basically done the same thing to her by calling her transphobic.
It didn't lack its funny moments, though. When I first sat down with my mom to talk about the subject she said, completely serious "[DEADNAME], I really want to you just... think for a second. About what you would look like as a woman."
My sister in Christ, that's KIND OF THE ISSUE HERE
Anyway, I talked to my brother about my identity despite their protests, because, yknow, they're dumb and wrong. He was 14 at the time. Very mature and intelligent. I really love the kid, and I hope he's doing okay. I asked him "What do you think makes you a boy?". He responded, bluntly "well, I have a penis." And I asked him, then "Well, what if you didn't? Would you still be a boy?" "Well, yes, I have XY chromosomes." "Okay, but, what if you didn't have those either. You're still the same person, just different chromosomes." And so on and so forth. Essentially, my goal was to establish a difference in his mind between the ideas of gender and sex. I thought it was a pretty interesting conversation. Afterward, my parents told me he said it made him very uncomfortable. He didn't express that to me in the moment, but if it's true, I regret that. I do harbor more than one suspicion that a lot of that might just stem from them sensationalizing it in his face all the time, but I digress.
He told my parents about it. I think his intentions were probably pure, but, they definitely didn't see it that way. The next morning, my mother said I needed to be out of the house by 2:30 PM or she would call the cops. My parents said a lot of really bad stuff that day. They said I was evil, that I had tried to groom my brother (yes, really). So, I left. They let me take the car I drove to and from work every day, at the very least. I packed the bare essentials into some bags and just... left. I didn't have anywhere to go, other than some local shelters I had examined in the event of this specific occasion arising. I lived in a city with a police force and populace that were notoriously hostile to homeless people (and trans people for that matter) and I was terrified for my future.
I reached out to a bunch of friends, especially the queer ones, telling them about my situation. One of them, to whom I am eternally grateful, made an arrangement with their parents for me to stay at their house temporarily. That may very well have saved my life.
Getting kicked out was fucking awful. I lost my house, most of my possessions, relationships with my siblings. I had to drop out of college since I now needed to work full time to save up for a new place to stay. But the family I was staying with was extremely supportive and gave me what I needed to bounce back.
It's now been almost a year since I first got outed. I've moved in to a new place in a better area for queer people (shoutouts to the puget sound woooo) with housemates who accept me for who I am. I'm working full time, and it's retail, and that sucks, but I'm surviving, and more importantly I don't have to be in the closet anymore. A month ago, I finally started HRT. My wardrobe is gradually being filled up with more and more cute, femme clothing. My hair is growing out and it's beautiful. I bought a gun and familiarized myself with its use and maintenance. Soon I'm going to apply to work at a nearby shipyard, which will be a job I might actually like.
The point I'm trying to make here isn't that I'm a really cool and awesome person (although, to be fair, that is true), but rather, that even when things get really, really, really bad, they can always, and, more than likely will, get better. I know with things being how they are right now it can be easy to lose hope and start panicking about the state of the world, but if there's one thing trans people, broadly, are very good at doing, it's surviving, especially through support of one another.
I look back on how I answered the question my dad asked me today, and despite all the awful shit that my family did to me as a result of it, I can't in good conscience say that I regret that decision. Life may not be easy, but I'm living it as who I am, and finally growing into the woman I've always deserved to be.
mtf, surround yourself with people who care about you as you are. Keep those people close and cherish them. Support systems are lifesavers. You're all beautiful and far stronger than you know.

2023.06.09 07:13 Fhiszy How do I tell my parents I don’t want the car they bought me?

I know this title may sound bad but please hear me out. I am 16 and my family lives on a pretty tight budget. I’m not given much, but I am grateful for anything I do get. I was recently surprised with a 98 chevy s10 short bed. This car was bought for $750. I was so excited and even cried when I got it because I was so thankful that they took their own money and bought me a vehicle. But when I looked closer I was a little put down.
Of course there is only so much you can get out of a cat for $750. but this needs a lot. Windshield, wiper motor, water pump, Manifold leak, and tires just to name a few. There is even more things that aren’t working properly that need to still be diagnosed.
This car is supposed to be ready for me to be able to get to school in august which is about 2 months away. the problem is that my parents are very big procrastinators. I know my dad more than anyone and i know that this will not be done in time.
Also, if you look this car up, it is insanely small and feels unsafe. it has two seats and absolutely no room to the point i get anxiety just sitting in it. It is also a manual, which i know how to drive, but is so impractical for my needs. Being a new driver, a manual car is a lot more for me to focus on.
Although I am a car guy, i do not care about the visual and cosmetic parts of a first car. as long as i am comfortable and feel safe i am fine. but this car gives me neither of these things.
I currently have a part time job making about $150 per week but i only work two days a week which is hopefully going to be more soon. I want to sell the car they gave me and use my own money and whatever i can get from the car to find something more practical for my needs, but i’m scared to tell this to my father because i don’t want to sound ungrateful when i truly am very grateful. i am not one to complain about much, but when is comes to something that i will be driving a lot and spending money on gas i want it to be something i feel safe in.

2023.06.09 07:12 poopoocatchu1 Kendall and the Waiter

The waiter dies because of Kendall, but Kendall doesn't explicitly kill the waiter.
The waiter never would be in the situation without Kendall's involvement......but on rewatch I see that the waiter is the one who moves the wheel to avoid the deer. He steers the car into the water when Kendall is looking down at the gearshift and doesn't see the deer.
If the waiter didn't do this they would hit the deer and maybe run off the bridge.....but there's no guarantee anyone would die.
It's a great bit of writing because it doesn't explicitly shape Kendall as a murderer. He's a guy who is wreckless, selfish at times....and does nothing to avoid shitty/tragic situations.
It also made me think of Kendall's relationship with water in a different light. He was making bad decisions that lead to him being thrown into the water....but he himself didn't steer himself in. It was a confluence of heinous decision making compounded by bad fortune. This is so on brand with his business/personal relationship with his father.
Also it gives me hope for the Kendall we see in the finale. He will forever feel guilty about the waiter.....but I think he has a chance to move on and live with himself knowing that it was not explicitly his fault for the kid's death.
Maybe this was a very small reason why he didn't kill himself in the finale?
Unrelated: I keep marveling at this show up on rewatch. It has such amazing continuity and allows for us fans to comb over details and have discussions.

2023.06.09 07:11 Ok-Tea870 AITA for holding onto some (possibly petty) anger/resentment?

I was adopted, and my bio dad didn’t know about me until I was close-adopted at 4. I reached out to him as an adult, and he raved about how much he missed out + how much he wanted to be a father figure. He has 3 daughters and a wife, and for 6 years, I’d celebrate all of their birthdays extensively. I’d get them gifts, go to their parties / help set them up, babysit for their birthdays, etc. We are all close, as I live 10min away from them.
Well, my birthday is something I love celebrating. My bio dad and I had never celebrated before, and when he brought up celebrating my 26 birthday a few months ago, I was ecstatic. He suggested that the weekend of my birthday, we should go to a festival and he’d set it up! The week of my birthday, he reminded me and said he’d text me the time the day of. The day past, and I heard nothing. That evening, I reached out and asked him what was up. He told me he was at the festival with his family aka his wife and 3 daughters. I replied and asked why he didn’t invite me, and he said his day went in a different direction and birthdays aren’t a big deal, I’m an adult and I shouldn’t be upset.
We talked a little more about it, but he was pretty firm in his stance. A week later, we celebrated one of his other daughters birthdays twice in that week — given, she did turn 16 and not 26.
This was a couple months ago, and now everytime it gets mentioned, he recalls how ridiculous I am about birthdays and how I care too much. I have said I disagree and I was excited to celebrate a birthday with him, and he gets angry. I emphasize that birthdays are important to me, and I wanted that to make it be important to him. He gets mad and kinda aggressive, so I don’t push it more than that, but he’s always the one to bring it up?
Inside, I am super hurt. But he acts like I’m so crazy and ridiculous with a bitter attitude anytime ANY bday gets brought up and he can recall mine. He recently said that my “abandonment issues” are probably why I have emotions about it and he try’s to remember that but I should work on it (I am in therapy and adoption support groups lol). Idk at first I really felt confident that it was worth being upset about…now, I’m worried I am being dumb and the sadness I feel inside about it is silly and I’m being unfair for considering pulling back from him? AITA for being so upset still and wanting to pullback in closeness bc I feel unseen?

2023.06.09 07:11 CrimsonEclipse18 [Across the Spiderverse] Mayday is an anomaly

Mayday's entire existence is only possible because of Miles the anomaly. Miles was the reason the other spider people got pulled into his universe (since if he wasn't there that 1610 Spider-Man would have stopped the collider), Miles helped Peter B get back on his feet by being his mentee and inspiring him, Miles was the reason Peter B decided to return to MJ and make things work, Miles is the reason Peter B wanted to be a father.
Every step in Mayday's existence was set in motion because Peter B met Miles. Without Miles, Peter B would have never decide to get back with MJ, let alone be a father considering that seems to be why they divorced in the furst place.
Mayday is the anomaly that was created because Miles, another anomaly, met her father. It's why currently only Peter B's world have 2 spider people, because Mayday was never supposed to exist.
And there's no way Miguel doesn't know this, but he accepts Mayday's existence because he's the daughter of his close friend as well as his feelings and guilt over his own daughter. And I wouldn't be surprised if this becomes a plot point in the 3rd movie.

2023.06.09 07:11 HoneyxClovers_ PIMO teen really needs to vent, feeling very lost

Warning: Pretty long venting
Recently, my (f17, 18 in less than a month) life just feels terrible lately. I graduated less than a month ago and so over senior year, my parents were stressing me out about college and ended up making me, practically forcing me, to enroll in this online college. My dad even told my mom that if I went to college on campus that he wouldn’t even help me out financially during college (parents are both PIMI but divorced).
Ever since I’ve been telling ppl that I’m going to an online college, they give me a weird face and ask why would I do that and not go to an in-person school. My college dreams were crushed and it’s been weighing on me for months. I originally wanted to go to NYC for college (where I’m originally from) but my mom shut me down real quick. So, seeing my best friend and everyone else from my class going away to college in the fall is really hard for me, so much FOMO and just being upset about me wishing I pushed back to my parents to tell them that I wanted to go to the college I picked, trying to please them. But I knew it wouldn’t have worked because in every universe, they wouldn’t be accepted by me moving away to a secular institution full of drugs and alcohol and kids partying.
But it can always get worse. My mom said that along with online college, I could regular pioneer. So yesterday I officially applied to start the same month as I start online college. I thought that maybe I could get a job at least while doing college to save up but even that plan she fucked me up. Now my mom wants me to do LDC, just making the decision for me. It just feels like every time I try to negotiate and please them, they make it 10x worse.
And to top everything off, my mom made me (asked and set it up) to start a Bible study with this new young girl at my hall like two months ago. So every Saturday, I go to her house and study the enjoy life forever lessons with her which means I have to prepare every Friday. And this Saturday, we will be talking about why being gay is bad because her father literally outed her to us… great.
My life is literally hell. I didn’t expect this to be my life after graduation. I wanted to move out and go to college, dorm, meet new friends, finally get a real boyfriend, extracurriculars, all the things I’ve seen in the movies. I was so hyped a year ago but now that will never happen because of the religion I was born into and my strict and PIMI parents.
Lately I’ve just not been myself. I’m sad all the time, I overeat way too much, I stay in my room watching TV shows and movies, and just can’t find any silver lining in my life right now. And like I mentioned before, my bsf is going to college an hour away so every time she talks to me about it, I feel envy even though I wish I could be happy for her.
And ofc I know that college isn’t everything but it was something that I looked forward to for most of my life and now I don’t have that anymore. And going to college online isn’t quite the same even though I get the same degree by the end but it’s a good college with a good community, even though it is virtual.
And I love my parents but this religion has sucked so much life out of me lately that I don’t know what to do anymore and I don’t have nothing to look forward to. And, yes, I am crying as I type this but it feels a bit better to vent all this out. I can’t talk to any of my friends abt this bc they don’t know what being a witness is like, especially being PIMO. This is the only place where I can share my true feelings.
It’s just really hard for me rn and I’m just trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel.

2023.06.09 07:09 Witty-System-6069 26 [M4F] California/Anywhere. Searching For A Relationship.

Anyway, I live in California too, a state that I’m proud to call home and hopefully can live here the rest of my life too. Anyway, about me. I love to write poems, but people probably disagree with me that what I write isn’t really poetry. That’s understandable, people have different likes. The majority of what I write is dark/sad/somber, but I promise it’s not a reason to be concerned. I also write about love, hope, essentially all good feelings life has to offer.
I have an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts (Arts and Letters Emphasis) and a Certificate of Achievement in Communication Studies from Community College; and a Bachelors Degree in Anthropology from the university level.
Long story short, I’ve never been in a relationship before. I focused on my well-being in the six years I spent in college and searched for my personal values and that of what I’d like to find in a woman I may consider being in a relationship with. My personal values now are kindness, empathy, understanding. These are the 3 important values I hope a woman I meet has too. At the end of the day, we’re all people trying to get by in life and succeed as we see right. We all deserve to experience love and happiness, don’t we? I think that we do. I hope to meet a woman that believes in this too. Ultimately, I have a lot of love to give to the right woman. 😌
If this matters, I’m…
-165 pounds and on skinny side
-Black hair and brown eyes
When sending me a message or chat, please introduce yourself and not just say “hello.” I’d like to learn a little about you. I hope to meet a woman that’s at least 21. And yes, I’m fine talking to older woman too.

2023.06.09 07:09 happyfreakinggardens Help! Is this normal?? Long post!

I've been renting for 3 years from a lady who lives very close to me. She asked in February if I would interested in buying her house and the house I rent as they are on the same land.
She had an appraisal done and it came back at 310k to which I said that's too high for me. She came back and said 280k and I said let me check interest rates. At the time they were around 5.5% and I said I wasn't sure so then she offered owner financing at 4%. I agreed and then signed a rental contract in March that said until July or when the house sells. In April I painted the kitchen and bathroom and began tidying up/buying things. In May she comes to me and says no owner financing. Interest rates are now up to 6.5% and I hustled to get a lender and a real estate lawyer and pre-approval. THEN I find out she doesn't want to move out until the end of July because she is running a home business and something or the other so this now begins to effect when I can lock in an interest rate. I had the real estate lawyer draft a contract and I asked for things to be split as fairly as possible in whatever is the normal way. Send to her and she sends back another contract which she signs where I am paying for everything and also liable for everything. She will not split closing costs. The way the contact is laid out, I am to have an inspection sign that I am okay with it within 5 days and she is not responsible for fixing anything if something is wrong. The termite inspection is to take place in July because closing would be August 1st meaning if I've signed I am okay at the end of June and termites are found in July I've already committed Earnest money. Also the seller doesn't want to be liable for termites found. Furthermore she has in the contract that she will not be providing warranties and I really need a general warranty deed with English covenants of Title. Also she has in there she won't make any corrections to defects I might find in the walkthrough.
I am feeling very distressed about all of this. I know 280k is lower than 310k but I feel very much like she is running the whole show. If I had known the real offer was 280k at whatever the rate was when she felt like signing a contract plus all these costs and liabilities I would've started looking for houses in February when rates were below 6% in my area. She wanted to do this whole thing without real estate agents and so I haven't had any guidance. I am seriously offended by this last contract and only really understand it because my late's father's best friend is an attorney who offered to read it. My own real estate attorney just told me "just write changes you want" instead of explaining to me everything going on. I have just yesterday enlisted a real estate agent and new lender as of today and I am honestly worried she will be upset and evict me. Maybe that is dramatic. But this whole thing is rubbing me the wrong way. I was actually happy to pay 280k for all of this because I would have both a house and a small cottage to use as rental income. But I am feeling taken advantage of here with the liability and costs lately. I just wanted things split fairly. I have instructed my new real estate agent to negotiate things fairly but I am also considering just ditching and looking at other houses under 300k. I've got a bad taste in my mouth from this experience. Other things to note - while I have been renting this cottage we've had a looser landlord/tenant arrangment than most people. I do have a formal lease but for example, there's been ants in the bathroom and kitchen now for a week and nothing has been done, there's a showerotten wood issue in my bathroom and instead of dealing with the contractor she is out of town and I am supposed to meet the contractor to deal with it. The water will be turned off while they are fixing the bathroom so I have to go live somewhere else for a week. I was of the belief that landlords had to make provisions for their tenants and I have been so understanding and patient because I have been worried about this deal falling through. There are different boundaries when it's tenant/landlord vs. buyeseller.
I guess this is both rant and an ask for advice? I am totally overwhelmed. I run a home business and need a stable place to live.

2023.06.09 07:08 Various-Doctor-34 Why does everybody hate Andrew Tate so much for no reason?

I don’t understand why so many people hate Andrew Tate so much, especially women, even Muslim women. He’s fighting against feminism and all these degenerate ideologies. He’s done more for the Ummah than most of us could ever in our lives.
What bad has he done? He’s motivated men to take care of themselves, control themselves, and be good fathers, husbands, and role models and he wants women to be comfortable at home with their husbands and be great mothers, wives, and role models. I understand he might have said bad things in the past, but overall, he generally makes great points like how traditional gender and family roles are being destroyed, and how Islam is the only religion that doesn’t tolerate degeneracy. Of the bad things he says, he’s just being a charactepersona most of the time, and even if he was being serious, this was all before he converted to Islam.
It’s annoying to hear people’s justification for their hatred of our brother Tate by saying “he’s a misogynist”, “he’s a sx traffickerpist”. Unfortunately in a society like this, people just want to do anything to make him guilty, even though he’s not even in jail anymore and is not proven guilty yet. Those same people who hate the Tate brothers, they would also be proudly cheering and enjoying themselves fully at some Chris Brown concert or some rapper like 6ix9ine, and funny enough, they actually objectify women with such filthy slurs and even abuse women, yet they get way more respect than our brother Andrew Tate does. Again, since Andrew Tate converted to Islam, all of his sins are washed away. Even if he is guilty, though the world would hate him, we got to support him and make sure he doesn’t do those things again. Many of the Sahaba also did worse things than him, and even some of them attempted to kill our beloved prophet (saw), and he forgave them after they converted. The double standard is that when some celebrity who is lgbt or liberal converts, just because they appear to be nice, they get praised heavily, but when somebody like Andrew Tate converts, they get massive amounts of hate.
Why don’t we give Andrew Tate another chance, whether he’s innocent or guilty? There’s this Hadith saying that “help your brother, whether he is oppressed or an oppressor”. This is not saying that if he’s guilty, that we condone what he did. This means that we support him in the sense that he would stop doing the crime and would make reparations to the victim.
Lastly, while Andrew Tate mainly says good things, he does have flaws too, but just like any other Muslim, we are all learning something new every day. If he does any sort of mistake or sin publicly after his conversion, he should just be privately informed and that we pray Allah guides him and us all.

2023.06.09 07:07 No_Young5561 It will be two years next month

My father passed suddenly in 2021 and I don't know how to live with the fact that it has been that long already. Music is still especially. And I have started having panic attacks. That didn't even happen during the first year. I don't understand what this new terrible evolution of grief is but it's feels like a rock around my neck some times.

2023.06.09 07:07 DrainBrah All being locked up in a psych ward teaches you is to be less honest around psychologists/therapists

I had to do nearly a full month last summer as a result of being honest with these people outside and in at the hospital and I realized lying about how I felt was the only way to taste freedom again and not end up in a group home.
Like yeah I still know exactly how I'd do it. I still "want" to do it nearly daily. I'm no better a year out despite weekly therapy and meds since.
Ik "psychology is a racket" Isn't exactly a hot take here but realizing I speech-checked my way to freedom instead of actually feeling better is really troubling looking back

2023.06.09 07:07 AmythestBunny How do I convince my fiancé to move back home with me? Should I?

This is my first post so I have no idea if I'm going about this right so please bare with me but here it goes.
Some background I 21F have been engaged to my fiancé 20M (Lets call him (S) for a little over a year now, we have a 5 month old son together I don't know if this matters or not but S proposed then we found out I was pregnant. Looking back on it, it was not the right time to get engaged, we were living together with some friends shortly after we both became homeless (Long story may make a post about it later) we had been together for a year before this, we plan on a long engagement. a month or so after finding out I was pregnant S's mom offered to move us in with her (D), D's boyfriend (DB) and her 3 other sons (18(G),15(Z),13(J) 9 hours away from where we were and pay our whole way there.
Our friends lease was almost up and we couldn't stay any longer so we said yes. Some important information before we agreed D said that there would be a car so we could get jobs, and to doctors appointments, no rent, no bills, and that I wasn't expected to clean after her other children. Well we get on a bus and make our way here and to our surprise, there's no car, so no way to get jobs or get to appointments.
We talk to her about this she says she has a friend (C) willing to help with rides to the doctor until she gets her car fixed (keep in mind it still isn't fixed and we've been here 10 months) and that since we didn't have to pay rent then no jobs should be fine until we get the car. After 2 times of this friend taking us to the doctors she starts asking for gas money, we tell her she has to take that up with her friend because we have no way of making money, the next day his mother starts shouting at us about gas money, we were super confused so we just went with it and found a way to make some money to pay for gas.
There were no more problems until 2 months later, DB gets arrested, he was in a car with some friends (Not C) with no tags and drugs in the car that were out in the open and everyone in the car was clearly intoxicated. It wasn't a big deal to anyone or a shock, he was physically abusive towards D and mentally towards her son's but left me and S alone. We all talked and decided it was best if DB didn't come back to the house when released, or even back on the property, DB came by a few times to get his things and try to talk to D since then with little to no luck.
A few WEEKS after DB and D broke up D starts talking to this dude (K) he's divorced, with two kids (that he has split custody of) 15F (B) and 17M (A). They have been together for about 8 months and has recently moved K and A into the house, we have had to move everyone around build walls and even get a storage building just to fit everyone onto the property. This is were my problem is, there is still no car, so no jobs.
They have been really busy moving all of K's things into the house that S forgot my 21st birthday and our plans cancelled last second, we were making up for the ruined plans this weekend but they just got cancelled to. Tonight D was supposed to take me to the store so I could get baby food (He has formula but he's a little under weight)
At first I was online and gonna place an order for it to be picked up tomorrow, and I was gonna ask C (Who said she'd drop anything and everything to help me with my baby) if she'd take me but when I say something to D about it she says she'll take me tonight instead. I make dinner, everyone eats, I think we're gonna go and then D comes out of her room yelling and screaming that she needs her house cleaned and that everyone needed to help. At that point I give up even the idea of going because I knew we weren't.
S, Z and I have turned into the house maids since D has thrown all the responsibilities of a father (of his brothers) on to S because D doesn't want to parent them. Because of this I feel like me and my son will always come second and that is what S has shown me, I've talked to him about this and he apologized and told me it'll more than likely be like this until we get our own place. I have talked to S about the problems I have with his mom and all he says it's just they way she is.
We have recently been offered an opportunity to get back to where I'm from, we'd be moving in with friends into a rental house, we'd have a car, we'd also be able to take a bus if needed. Child care close by also my family willing to watch him for free. Seems great right? Well S doesn't want to burn the bridge with D since they just rebuilt it from the first time, if he leaves all his reasonability's get thrown onto Z the 15m not G the 18m I don't want him to either but I see what being here does to him. I don't want to take my son away from his loving uncles. I've told him of the offer and he wants to but the thought of leaving his brothers alone with his mother again scares him.
This matter is putting a strain on our relationship and I don't know where to go from here. Do I give him an ultimatum? Do I just leave? I want to tell him I'm leaving with or without him, he can come with, or he can follow me later but the choice is his. I really would like some advise on what to do.

2023.06.09 07:06 westslopebear Found this thunder egg at the bottom of a rock pile.

Found this thunder egg at the bottom of a rock pile.
TL;DR Found a thunder egg in recently deceased fathers belongings. Trying to figure out where it might have come from.
I was going through my fathers belongings after he passed away a couple years ago. My father was a shameless hoarder, pack rat, and more often than not a thief as well; I found all my missing tools coincidentally too.
I was sifting through one of the many buckets and sacks of rocks, minerals, and stolen silverware. At the very bottom of it was four or five bulbous geode-esque stones. I thought they were geodes. Being the impatient person I am, I immediately took my mini sledge to the largest of the group; because we all want instant gratification sometimes.
I was pleasantly disappointed with the results. I was bummed that they weren’t geodes, excited that it was something just as interesting. Even if I had no clue what. I had never seen nor heard of thunder eggs prior to this.
After asking around and doing some research. I now know what it is. The mystery of where it was found remains unsolved. I’ve yet to see any images or similar content that has the same sort of composition to mine. So ask you fellow rock hounds, what is your opinions on where it may have came from. I live in western Colorado, and I don’t think there is any known thunder egg locations that are real close to my area either.
