2023.06.01 03:37 Flynnsgroundlamb [Six Flags Great America][Hersheypark] Trip report
I made my first trip to Chicago over the weekend. I went for the baseball games on Memorial Day, but I thought that I should go to Six Flags Great America since it was nearby.
Superman (2x): My second Ultimate Flight clone, after Great Adventure. I really like the pretzel loop.
Joker (1x): A very interesting sensation. I'd already ridden the one at Great Adventure, but the rotations were pretty intense in some spots.
Batman (2x): I was looking forward to this. I rode once in the front row, and once in the back row. It's very intense in the back, and I liked it more in the back row. The zero g roll and corkscrew were great.
Flash (1x): No complaints.
Goliath (2x): I liked the dive loop and the zero g stall. The oldest RMC that I've ridden so far.
X Flight (2x): My second wing coaster, after GateKeeper. I liked the elements much more on X Flight. A little bumpy in the back row going through the keyhole, but pretty fun overall.
Maxx Force (1x): Very cool concept. I went with the front row for my one ride. Great view, and I really like the inversions.
Raging Bull (3x): My favorite ride in the park. The pre drop seems much quicker than Apollo's Chariot. I liked the layout, and pacing.
Demon (1x): Worst headbanging I've ever experienced.
Viper (1x): No complaints.
I got back in time to go the passholder preview for Wildcat's Revenge today at Hersheypark.
Wildcat's Revenge (1x): I liked the drop down out of the station, and the pacing, and the inversions.
Candymonium (2x): Good floater on the hills, and I liked the view when circling the fountain.
Skyrush (2x): It was really running fast today. The first drop in the back left wing seat (my favorite seat) is the only element on a coaster that still scares me every time I ride it. It feels like you're going to be ejected right out of the car.
Great Bear (1x): I got a front row ride. Great view of so many rides from the top of the lift hill. It was much faster than I remembered. Great snap to all of the elements.
Stormrunner (1x): The launch and the snake dive are two of my favorite elements.
It was a really fun trip. I don't think that I'll go back to Great America soon, but only because it's so far outside of Chicago, I'd have to rent a car again. I'm much closer to Hersheypark, and I'm looking forward to more rides on Stormrunner, Skyrush, and Wildcat's Revenge.

2023.06.01 03:36 bitterbrownbrat1 should I get a second opinion?
| || | submitted by bitterbrownbrat1 to askdentists [link] [comments]
I have been going to the same dentist since I was in 8th grade and now I'm in my mid 20's and they moved their practice over the state lines so they sold their contacts to another dentist.
Anyways, its been 8 months since have last seen a dentist and i see the new one and i get x rays done and they said I have 10 cavities. I'm not saying that it is impossible but they did not show me the x rays or show me where they would eb etc. I left a bit shocked and the next day called to ask if they could me remineralized and the dentist was at a graduation and they said that they think they are beyond a certain point.
I called again to ask if they could send x rays to me or something that said where the cavities were located, and they sent me the x rays but they are not panoramic like the ones in the reddit. plus I'm not sure what to look for ?
no medical conditions
i do smoke + drink but I can count on one hand how many times I have done thsi within the last year
I wear a thick mouth guard that I got made at night because I grind my teeth
I have had cavities before , last time I got one filled was ten years ago probably https://preview.redd.it/tf4a4i3m8b3b1.jpg?width=1916&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=682884e13487d732fe3f654972a9dec3fcb7049d
2023.06.01 03:36 Wraithdagger12 #SVTFOEdailyChallenge Season 3a - New season, new evils, new mysteries
| || | submitted by Wraithdagger12 to StarVStheForcesofEvil [link] [comments]
Who are the real villains? Them? Or Eclipsa?
Extremely overdue, but here are my thoughts/notes I took while rewatching the show the past few months! This is Season 3a, which I have arbitrarily cut off at episode 11, right before things started getting hot. Note that not all episodes have notes, because I didn't really have any new thoughts about them. Also included are bits of conversation I had with folks on the WTWC Discord.
I might make some more in-depth posts about some things if I feel like it. If you have any of your own thoughts, feel free to share them below. Anyway, enjoy! Return to Mewni
Moon the Undaunted
- Moon's confession to Star about not being a 'cool warrior queen' really shows who she really is (in that she sacrificed a lot for her family and kingdom)
Marco and the King
- Between going to war (best case - high casualties; pyrrhic victory) and signing a peace treaty (at a disadvantage), i think teenage Moon made the right decision, at least in the moment
- What were Moon's major 'decisions' in her character arc? There's not killing Toffee so as to not free Eclipsa, and there's trying to walk the tightrope when it came to Mina vs. Eclipsa in the end
- Glossaryck conveniently leads the Butterfly queen in a very particular direction
- 300 year old vending machines that Eclipsa knew her combination to
- I like how Eclipsa was unfazed that there was still a war going on, 300 years later
Scent of a Hoodie
- Which monarch (or “acting” monarch) partied harder? River or Festivia?
Rest in Pudding
- Pony came over after hearing about what happened in Butterfly Kingdom and after getting her hair done. So, it took weeks - months - to do her hair, which i actually think might be feasible for her
- From Olin: It makes me think, other then Questbuy did they go to another dimension to do anything mundane like get your hair done? The closest I can think of it chilling at the Bounce Lounge.
- Me: Star even took Marco to the Earth mall for that formal outfit
- Most of the dimension hopping was either for fun in Season 1 or Star causing mayhem while under the influence of magic in Season 3
- Pony mentioned ‘hoodies’ - how many hoodies did Star steal?
- Random thought: Are tigerfish a thing?
- So Star ‘called for’ Glossaryck and he came back - makes me wonder under what circumstances he appeared to folks before
- From Olin: Based on the Book of Spells I assume Glossy will always show himself to a wand wielder when called, as long as there is magic. I doubt he ever really dies.
- Unicorn squirrels are a thing on Mewni, apparently
- The whole things the MHC and Moon said about Eclipsa is so silly. From the start of this arc to the end, no one explained why being in love with a Monster is bad; why dark magic is so bad. I could go to bat for them and give some objective reasons (even if i disagree with them), but they never gave those reasons
- Eclipsa's "I did what I had to do for me" re: dark magic is actually quite interesting: I think she wrote in the Book of Spells that she needed some of those spells to protect the kingdom if it came down to it. Also, heck, folks should look objectively at some of the stuff Solaria and Sky did. Crescenta, too, for that matter. Deep dive (heh) into everything each queen did and you'd find some sketchy stuff
- "They said you could be in my mind and I wouldnt even know it" #foreshadowing
- From Olin re: 'deep dive': Morality on Mewni is a lot different then it is in Echo Creek. Mewni - Skulls everywhere, put people with mental health issues into catapults, raising the dead is fine, but Eclipsa's chapter is evil. I know the writers did this for the story but it would be interesting to know how it got so different.
- From Andrew re: 'from the start of this arc to the end': I always felt the answer they were going for was simple: they were just racists that refused to listen to reason and were willing to screw over the kingdom & half of Mewni’s population to vindicate themselves
- My reply: That's the thing though because I feel like they had a reason, they just didn't make that reason. That, or they just got so caught up in the lies that they forgot what the truth - the reason - actually was
- More random thoughts about the MHC:
- I could argue that the MHC's self-serving nature makes them more neutral and not necessarily evil
- Although i'd put them closer to the 'evil' end of the spectrum than the middle
- To me the MHC mostly just wanted to maintain their standing and weren't overtly concerned with other people - they just kind of followed the winds in that regard
- What i mean is that people have pointed out from the history we have from the books that there was some flip-flopping on whether to fight the Monsters or be at peace with them
- Solaria, for comparison, definitely evil - she saw herself as a conqueror and was willing to commit genocide for the sake of it
- On Reynaldo - or any of them, really - it's hard to say what their exact role was on things like the cover-up of Meteora
- They were all in on it, and given that it's something they had to live with for hundreds of years, they kind of had to stick together
- Random thought: I've always thought that Toffee's corruption was different than dark magic. Dark magic tended to be purple/black, Toffee's was more green/black. He put 'himself' into it. Now that i think about it, i wonder if Toffee used his Septarian regeneration on the Realm of Magic?
- Seahorse had a demoncism - how did he need one to begin with?
- Demon powers come from Demon spirits?
- Jackie throws left handed
Trial by Squire
- So Marco drops back into Star's life and Star almost forgets that he was gone at all (in that she talked to him like she always did)
- Similarly to the first episode, Star and Marco fight baddies together naturally
- Moon and River basically told Star and Marco to go away and hang out while they figure things out (re: Marco being back on Mewni)
- Star basically makes a royal decree for Marco to be her squire and be around her all the time, and even gives him a room in the castle - I wonder how Moon and River felt about that? 😛
- 'Yeah mom, my best friend, who I totally don't have a crush on, is gonna be staying with us, also he's gonna stay up and watch me sleep some nights' 🤪
- Thinking ahead to Starfari, in a way, Star seeing how Monsters were actually being treated on Mewni connects the story set up in Season 1/2 with the present
- In S1, Star realized Monsters were being treated "unfair" and that history had been, let's say exaggerated to show Mewmans in a positive light
- I'm not sure Star ever walked the streets of her own kingdom, let alone an outlying village - Mewman or Monster - and actually saw the reality of things
- The 10,000th annual squire blowout...
- The Butterfly dynasty has maybe lasted 1000 years at most
- So Quest Buy was around a lot longer, ya?
- Why did Star want a tree costume of all things so badly?
- Marco's costume at the end reminds me a bit of Jushtin, maybe?
- Marco was going to St. O’s to come clean to the princesses
- Why were they going in a carriage?
- There’s someone else who looks like Princess Jaggs?
- Jorby is there
- I think the big takeaway from the episode Princess Turdina is to be yourself
- The other princesses still accepted, and were proud of Marco even after he admitted "I am a boy"
- In addition to the Forest of Certain Death there's the:
- Lake of Endless Suffering; Dam of Constant Sorrow; Bridge of the Inevitable Hereafter - who comes up with these names?
- Also why do they seem to be associated with off-limits areas/places where Monsters dwell?
- So Star’s Petition of Friendship was actually genuine and everyone seemed on board with it, compared to Crescenta’s thing which was more, uh.. bad

2023.06.01 03:34 harry-jg How to Pay Hulu Outside in USA
Can't access Hulu outside the United States? It's as if the universe has conspired against you, demanding you provide a US credit card and asking you to physically be in the country. This becomes particularly vexing when you're on a vacation in, say, Paris, and all you want is to binge-watch your favourite show while munching on a croissant. Turns out, renewing your subscription can be as complicated as explaining the plot of a time-travel movie to your grandmother.
So here's the trick: You need a VPN. Hulu, being the sly fox that it is, looks at your IP address to see if you're within the good ol' USA. But a VPN, with its digital cloak of invisibility, lets you masquerade as a Yank, regardless of your actual whereabouts. Meaning, you could be sipping sake in Tokyo or riding a camel in Egypt, but Hulu will think you're eating apple pie in the heartland.
Through diligent labour, my team and I scrutinized over 60 VPNs designed to finagle Hulu's geoblocks. And standing tall among the crowd, we have ExpressVPN. It's the Brad Pitt of VPNs, offering multiple US servers and lightning-fast speeds to let you access Hulu without as much as a hiccup. And just to sweeten the deal, you can take ExpressVPN for a spin without any risk, as it's protected by a 30-day money-back guarantee. If it doesn't tickle your fancy, getting your money back is as easy as pie.
Getting Cozy with Hulu Globally: A VPN's Role in Your Streaming Escapades
Ever tried to access Hulu outside the United States? It's like attempting to communicate with a mime—nearly impossible and often met with an unamused silence. Hulu, with its treasure trove of binge-worthy content, unfortunately, dons an armor of licensing restrictions that keep it securely tethered to the Land of the Free. Its digital gatekeepers, aptly called geoblocks, detect the non-US IP address and give you a digital cold shoulder. And if you thought that's the end of your woes, there's more! Setting up a new Hulu account would need a US credit card, a hurdle that's hard to leap.
In these dire times, one can count on the prowess of a Virtual Private Network (VPN). Picture a VPN as a savvy undercover agent, masterfully disguising your IP address as if you're lounging on a couch somewhere in New York, even when you're actually sunbathing in Barcelona. A VPN juggles your internet traffic, directing it through a server of your choice, thereby replacing your original IP address with a shiny new one from the chosen location. This high-tech sleight of hand can bamboozle streaming platforms into thinking you're within their allowed borders.
In layman's terms, pick a VPN server located in the US and voila! You get a US IP address. When Hulu gazes upon this borrowed IP, it believes you're a proud dweller of Uncle Sam's land, lifting the barriers. Suddenly, signing up, renewing subscriptions, and accessing your beloved Hulu shows become a cakewalk, no matter where on the globe you're perched.
Imagine you're trying to sprint a marathon on stilts - pretty inconvenient and unstable, right? Now swap those stilts with a pair of world-class running shoes, and suddenly you're Usain Bolt. That's precisely the upgrade ExpressVPN offers when you're trying to subscribe to Hulu or streaming in Ultra High Definition.
In a test of virtual athleticism, ExpressVPN's New York, Dallas, and Chicago servers gave a stunning performance. Clocking in at an average speed of 91 Mbps, they fell only a hair short of my prime 100 Mbps connection. It’s like running a race and placing a close second to a cheetah. Given that you need merely a humble 25 Mbps to stream in UHD, this VPN crosses the finish line with excessive energy to spare. Even when I indulged in a hair-raising episode of American Horror Story, buffering was a foreign concept.
In addition to its impressive speed, ExpressVPN offers a roster of 24 US locations, akin to a digital buffet of options for connecting to Hulu on your world travels. Even from the other side of the world (9,153 km away, to be exact), my New Jersey server stood like a steadfast guard, ensuring my connection remained unbroken.
What's more, ExpressVPN’s MediaStreamer acts as a secret decoder ring, enabling you to watch Hulu on devices that usually don't shake hands with VPNs. PlayStation, Xbox, or even that one smart TV you got at a Black Friday sale years ago; all can be brought into the fold. The setup process was quicker than making a microwave popcorn bag. Simply jot down a code from your ExpressVPN account dashboard, feed it into your smart TV’s network settings, and voila! I found myself catching up on Hulu shows on my antiquated Samsung Tizen TV with no hiccups.
While ExpressVPN might ask for a few more pennies than its fellow VPN services, the sheer performance justifies the price tag. It's like paying extra for a VIP concert ticket - you're assured of the best experience. And with a 30-day money-back guarantee, you can test drive it on Hulu, no strings attached. And if you decide it's not your cup of tea, their customer support is there to process your refund without quibble. They’re rather nice about it, really.
Picture CyberGhost as the highly competent butler of your digital mansion, ensuring a seamless Hulu streaming experience. This ace up the VPN sleeve not only provides fast and reliable connections but serves them with a silver platter specifically designed for Hulu. Imagine a world where buffering is as extinct as dial-up internet, all thanks to CyberGhost’s Hulu-optimized servers. I frolicked in this paradise while renewing my subscription using their Miami server.
Using CyberGhost's Hulu-optimized servers is like walking through an automatic door; it's a breeze. The interface is as user-friendly as a Labrador puppy. A simple peck on your keyboard typing "Hulu" in the search bar under the "For streaming" tab, and you're given a list of servers that are specially designed to work magic on Hulu. Better still, some of these servers have undergone a digital personal training regimen to optimize their performance for Fire Stick and Android TV specifically.
While CyberGhost may not be as predictably consistent as ExpressVPN, akin to a weather forecast, its connections still hold strong. Think of it like a relay race with the US, UK, and Australia servers, each passing the baton without letting the speed dip below an 82 Mbps average. I was treated to uninterrupted feasts of "Santa Evita" and "House of the Dragon" in Ultra High Definition, without so much as a single awkward pause or hiccup.
Private Internet Access
Imagine a scenario where you have a myriad of IP addresses at your disposal for streaming Hulu like a monarch, that's exactly what PIA offers. This VPN is a playground teeming with server options in the US, reducing your chances of being in the middle of an overcrowded digital mosh pit. Trust me, you'd prefer your own breathing room when renewing your Hulu subscription, which I did with as much ease as butter sliding off a hot knife. With such an extensive server network, you have a buffet of alternative routes should Hulu unexpectedly pull the roadblock on one.
What sets PIA apart from the crowd is its penchant for personalization. Think of it as the bespoke suit of VPN apps. This little wonder comes with an array of widgets that are as flexible as a yoga instructor, ready to twist and bend to suit your interface aesthetic. Additionally, it hands you the reins of encryption, allowing you to choose between the Fort Knox of security - the AES 256-bit encryption, or the slightly more fleet-footed but still quite secure AES 128-bit encryption.
Now, this plethora of customization options could be a bit like being lost in a tech version of Narnia for the newly initiated. It's a lot to take in. But give it a little time, a few exploratory clicks and swipes, and you'll find the app's interface becomes as familiar and easy to navigate as your favorite neighborhood bistro.
Five Secret Passages to Hulu Land Without a US Credit Card in 2023
Juggling through the nuances of signing up for Hulu, especially without a US credit card, can make your head spin faster than a hamster on a wheel. So let's pop the lid off Pandora's box and unveil the five undercover methods to bring Hulu to your fingertips.
Before you sprint into action, let's cross off a couple of quick checks:
Make sure to equip yourself with a VPN. Any VPN on my coveted shortlist should do the trick, but I would tilt my hat towards ExpressVPN. It zips along at breakneck speeds and boasts a generous offering of US servers to select from
Now you're in the right gear, but you need to be in the right place. As Hulu only pays house visits to those who reside in the US (virtually, of course), that's where you should connect.
With these quick checks done and dusted, you're ready to proceed. Brace yourself as we unveil the five secret scrolls to gain access to the tantalizing world of Hulu.
MyGiftCardSupply: Your Key to Unlock Hulu's Magic Box
A Hulu gift card from MyGiftCardSupply is your golden ticket to the land of unlimited entertainment.
Step 1: Buying a ticket. Venture into the online bazaar of MyGiftCardSupply, and procure a Hulu gift card ranging from $25 to $100. The amount depends on how deep you want to dive into the ocean of Hulu content. Be sure to sign up if you haven't already - think of it as a friendly handshake.
Step 2: Sniff out the code. Once the gift card purchase is complete, you'll receive an email with the precious code. Open it, and gently copy the code.
Step 3: Claim your prize. Stride confidently to Hulu's redemption page, type in your hard-earned code, and create your account. Do remember to use a US address and zip code when signing up – they are quite particular about that.
Step 4: Let the show begin. Slide into Hulu's log-in page and gently type in your shiny new credentials.
Step 5: The Grand Finale. Now it's time to sit back, relax, and bask in the glory of endless entertainment on Hulu. Step into your personal streaming universe and enjoy the show!
Hitching a Ride on iTunes US: Your Unconventional Route to Hulu
Now, let's stroll down a different route, this time, a path known as 'iTunes US.'
Step 1: Set up camp in the Land of Apple. Visit Apple's website and pitch your digital tent by creating a new account. Consider this your personal American outpost in the universe of iTunes.
Step 2: Stock up on provisions. Replenish your digital coffers either directly through iTunes or via a US iTunes gift card, which is akin to your secret stash of apple cider in the cellar.
Step 3: Summon Hulu. Type "Hulu" into the search bar and download the app. Much like calling a pet, it'll come running and install itself onto your device.
Step 4: Enter the realm of Hulu. Use your iTunes funds to either get a shiny new plan or renew an existing subscription, and then log into your Hulu account. This is you officially checking into the grand Hulu Hotel.
Step 5: Savour the spectacle. With all these steps complete, you're now in a position to pay for and enjoy your Hulu account. It's time to kick back and indulge in the smorgasbord of entertainment that Hulu has to offer.
Hopping onto the Hulu Train with a Prepaid US Card: A Thrifty Globetrotter's Guide
Let's now venture down a pragmatic avenue, namely the 'Prepaid US Card' route.
The first station is "Prepaid US Card Central". You'll need to navigate your way to VISA or MasterCard, where you can choose your ticket – the prepaid card.
Next, we arrive at "Funds Station". Here, you need to fuel up your prepaid card. This can be done directly or by transferring money from your bank account, given that your card of choice supports such cheery transfers.
Having acquired your ticket and made sure it's packed with funds, it's time to board the Hulu Express at the "Hulu Account Terminal". Here, you'll need to check-in, select a subscription plan, and jot down the necessary particulars.
We're almost there. The last stop before you start your entertainment journey is "Registration Point". Here, you pay for the service using your shiny new prepaid card. Now, if this doesn't work for some reason, perhaps the ticket machine is being obstinate, don't fret – just try the gift card method instead.
With the ticketing process complete, you're all set to start watching. It's time to sit back, kick off your shoes, and let the Hulu Express whisk you away into a world of non-stop entertainment, right outside of the USA.
PayPal Your Way to Hulu Paradise: A Modern Maverick's Approach
Welcome to the "PayPal method", a trail favored by modern mavericks, digital nomads, and online shopping aficionados.
Begin this journey by constructing your own digital finance fortress – a PayPal account. You'll need to swing by PayPal and ensure you're setting up a US account. Now, it's imperative that you get this right, because Hulu can be a bit snobbish when it comes to foreign PayPal accounts. If setting up a US PayPal account starts to feel like trying to lasso a greased pig, simply revert to our old reliable – the gift card method.
Having established your PayPal account, you're now ready for the next leg of the journey. Head on over to Hulu, strut your stuff, and log in using your credentials.
Next up, it's time to pay the piper... or rather, the subscription. If your account is a newborn, fresh out of the internet womb, you can also kick off a free trial.
With these steps accomplished, it's time to kick back and start watching. Dive headlong into the ocean of your favorite Hulu shows, and swim around in the thrill of it all.
StatesCard: Your Magic Carpet Ride to Hulu Bingeing
Behold, the wonders of StatesCard, the 21st-century magic carpet ride to the land of Hulu bingeing!
Your journey starts at the port of StatesCard, where you'll need to carve out your digital presence by clicking the "Sign Up" button. Having successfully become a part of the club, add a little bit of that digital money to make it official.
Your next stop is Hulu. Log in with your carefully crafted credentials or take a bold step and create a whole new identity for yourself (strictly on Hulu, of course).
Once settled in, it's time to pay the virtual ferryman. Use the card information you secured from your new friend, StatesCard, to pay for or renew your Hulu subscription. If you do this right, you'll have successfully purchased your ticket to endless entertainment.
Having accomplished these milestones, you're now fully armed and ready to embark on the Hulu adventure. Sit back, relax, and let the world of your favorite Hulu shows envelop you.

2023.06.01 03:34 sevwriter Short story I just wrote about depression. "Maple Syrup"
First time posting or getting feedback. Appreciate any of your thoughts. It's kinda absurd and not scientifically sound, but I had a fun afternoon writing it.
By the time the ants found maple syrup on the kitchen counter from a Friday night breakfast-for-dinner, my head was half-squeezed shut. The constellation of symptoms was described medically over the years as Panic Disorder, Depression, Anxiety, Cyclothymia, and Bipolar-Not Otherwise Specified. The mental healthcare system, insofar as there was one in the United States of 2010-2022, never did give me a straight answer.
No matter. The name didn’t concern me. I had years of experience subverting sexual identity labels to thank for that. And the meds provided a charitable blanket over most of the stars in my particular constellation. Chemicals, after all, don’t need to know a diagnosis to work. What did concern me was the feeling of my head squeezing into itself and with it, the world as I knew it. The sensations began to transcend the psychological into the physical. My head ached, but it wasn’t a headache.
By spring my spirit was in an anvil. Sharp, tight, and dwindling. I didn’t need a shrink, I needed an enlarger. Sometimes I’d start to cry. Sometimes I thought I would die. Sometimes I just lied there, desperate for a distraction that didn’t come. In those days my mind could go from zero to deep needless torment in under seven seconds. I envisioned dark red synapses firing across the surface of my brain. Those were the Bad Thoughts, and they were getting darker and redder that inordinately warm April of 2022.
There were other types of thoughts too, lest you think I went certifiable. These ones were shades across a lighter chromatic spectrum, and they propelled me through a day physically and socially unscathed. Drop off the UPS package (light yellow). Walk the dog (sea foam green). Respond to the text (baby blue). Call in to the meeting (nectarine).
The ants weren’t as plentiful as the ones in my San Francisco apartment, which formed yards-long lines along the bottom of my bedroom wall. But they were more determined. Scrappier. They’d crawl out from several directions: my garbage disposal, the windowsill, the dishwasher. It was a multi-directional onslaught that I both saw coming and chose to do nothing about.
An ecosystem fueled by Vermont’s finest Grade A syrup began to thrive in my kitchen. Flies and mosquitoes found their rightful place within it. I felt guilty for letting things get this way, and then guilty for thinking that ‘getting this way’ meant anything beyond my own arbitrary standard of cleanliness. It all sounded vaguely fascist. And anyhow I had a house, a job, a dog, friends. An extant and healthy mother, father, and brother. I went to the number one liberals arts college. On these facts alone I clung strongly and proudly. I’d never actually let myself go.
Yet that appeared to be what was happening. Doing the Bare Minimum was my new MO and ridding these ants was a touch past this threshold. My head could handle the Easter-colored thoughts and the Dark Red thoughts that squeezed. But there was no room for ones of moderate intensity. I could handle the gargantuan and the tedium, just nothing in between.
Besides dying alone, my deepest fear was to end up on a show like Intervention or Hoarders. In May of that year I discovered that it’s our deepest fears we inadvertently move towards. I was blocked by my ex for one too many late night drunken texts. I was chronically unsure of where I stood in my friend group. My parents were close in geography but far in spirit.
Perhaps my only source of stability then was my job. I worked from home in software. My Bare Minimum MO had been soundly applied here too. Luckily this coincided with a post-Pandemic phenomenon known as Quiet Quitting, which even my boss knew about, so I was able to float on semi-intelligent cruise control for the time being.
I can guess what you’re thinking. You worked 15 hours per week, in a house to yourself, ate pancakes for dinner, and were sad?
I wish I understood it too. By June, Pride month, I forewent cooking entirely. I ate one meal per day, delivered from an app. I couldn’t even look at my kitchen. It was situated between my living room and my bedroom, so the only time I spent in it was heads down on my way to or from sleep.
My head was still intact but then so was the ant colony. I’d cleaned the maple syrup and all the other visible food scraps, but the ants’ infrastructure proved too resilient to falter. It fed on the seedy kitchen underbelly. Crumbs in the crevasses, I guessed, but couldn’t be bothered to look.
It’s June 2023 now, and the ants have thoroughly taken over the kitchen and living room. I took the office, bedroom, and 1.5 bathrooms. They take up so much space they should split rent! It’s not like they don’t have the work ethic.
I had a close call this past winter when my landlord came to unstick my door and noticed my insecticidal interior. The overhead light was covered in something “brown and wavy.” I pegged him for an amateur or a semi-blind because my ants are dark red and their movement is hardly fluid.
Instead of reprimanding me, he referred me to his brother in law, a documentarian with a new project examining the interplay of urbanism and geologic decay. I landed a starring role, insofar as one can star in a documentary. This led to another part in an alternative web series about climate change. They filmed my parts from my house. This led me to a sponsorship deal with the country’s leading carbon neutral tire company, whose name I hardly need mention. Now, I work 15 hours per quarter. I never made amends with my ex nor determined my standing in the friend group. Who needs love when you have 23,000 followers at your fingertips? I also didn’t heal my childhood trauma while my parents were alive and close by because my license expired and there was no way to get to the DMV.
My head doesn’t hurt anymore because my new prescription reroutes the norepinephrine from my nucleus accumbens to my basal ganglia. I live peacefully with the ants. They call me the queer Jane Goodall, if you can believe it. Ants are one of the planet’s most durable species. What commenters call disturbing, my followers call inspirational. I consider it a downright privilege.

You immediately dive headlong into some dense green foliage, so as not to be detected by any onlookers. Quick! choose a womens swimsuit from the burberry collection, and let’s get out of here... https://us.burberry.com/l/womens-swimwea#/swimwea

2023.06.01 03:32 jreddit5 Which CAP2 should I get?
I really wanted Sage. When I flipped through the pics, the Sage just made me feel calm. But it’s sold out. I need to order by June 5 for an upcoming trip.
So now I think it’s between the burnt orange/gray interior, or the green OD X-pac/blaze orange interior.
This is for travel, to fit adapters, cables, chargers, you name it.
I already have a CPL 24 and CTB 26 in black/gray interior, and the CAS 2L in slate/blaze, orange interior.

2023.06.01 03:31 circus_circuitry What on earth can I do?
I live in northwestern Oklahoma. This morning while sitting on my patio a little green anole scurried by me and disappeared behind a tree. Now I have learned they are not native here. I assume it's an escaped or released pet and I'm wondering if it's possible to catch it and either keep it or find someone who can.
Am I out of my mind or can I possibly help the little dude?

2023.06.01 03:31 batterylizard Cooling a non-insulated room on the roof?
Hello, I live in a 500 sqft room in a building. The room is basically a brick box on the roof. It traps heat and has quite tall ceilings. There is one window that I’m running a window unit out of (13,000 btu) but it doesn’t practically nothing to bring the temperature down here in Chicago summer.
Would a mini split system be able to cool this down? what other options do I have to cool down this space ?
Thanks I hope I can get some solutions.

2023.06.01 03:31 Royal_Confidence5352 Does this sound like IBS?
27F already scheduled a colonoscopy for peace of mind, but I’m still scared. For a couple years now have had these bad left sided “flare ups” that start on upper left side of abdomen under ribs and then goes down, still on left side only. I get a burning, aching pain, and need to pass a bowel but can’t, only pass mucus. Nothing seems to help the pain much and just have to ride it out. Then it clears and I’m able to pass bowel movements again. I notice before and after my menstrual cycle bowel movements are horrible. But during my cycle they are more consistent. Seems like it’s hormone related too? I’m also having stringy, flat, snake like poops. My bowel movements have always been snake like, but I feel like the last 3-4 years they have been flat and with ridges. Coincidentally, I started having hemorrhoids 4 years ago and still have them now, which I hope explains the bowel shapes with ridges and some flatness. I started taking Metamucil and green juices which helps on normal days but not during a flare up. I had gastritis years ago that cleared with meds but then I started having these flare ups again. I cant pinpoint what triggers them because sometimes I eat the same exact things and sometimes they cause flare ups, sometimes they don’t. I feel like my immense health anxiety triggers them more than anything. Last year I had my gallbladder removed so now the urgency to poop is even worse after eating, especially if I haven’t eaten in a while and then eat… boom have to go. These flare ups also seem to happen the most when I’m extremely hungry like in the morning and fast, and when I finally eat I get horrible stomachache, acid reflux, gas, bloat and a flare up that lasts a couple days. I of course have been so deathly afraid of colon cancer or something like that but I truly hope colonoscopy is clear and it’s only ibs. No family history of colon cancer, but yes of gastritis and gut issues. Do these symptoms sound like IBS?

2023.06.01 03:30 irishpisano Benton’s and Greene’s last days
I only watched the first half (more or less) of the show during its run and now and binging the entire series for the first time. I am surprised and impressed by how well the writers handled Benton’s and Greene’s last respective days of employment.
Benton spikes the ball like the badass that he is and makes a successful Herculean effort to save a shooting victims life after EVERY doctor and surgeon told him it was impossible.
Greene handles two traumas simultaneously then whips through a couple of quick patients (like clearing the board in old times) and then finishes with a little girls splinter in the sweet way that only he could.
Perfection on both accounts.
I’m anxious to see what the final days are for Carter Lewis Weaver Kovacs etc… (no spoilers past S8 please)

2023.06.01 03:29 rodog22 Requesting feedback on first chapter
Is anyone interested in critiquing the first chapter of my planned cultivation fantasy series. Sort of an alpha reader? it's less than 1800 words. I want to get several people's opinions of my prose before I write more chapters.
“I can’t wait to eat it.” Gong Li salivated over his next meal. Which was unfortunate, on account of the fact that it wasn’t dead yet.
Over 30 paces away from where he hid was a gnarlwood elk, its hind quarters marked by significant scarring that almost resembled burn marks. Presumably from a recent run in with a predator.
The gnarlwood elk was a truly majestic spirit beast that naturally cultivated the aspect of wood. And as was typically the case for spirit beasts, the path of its cultivation expressed itself in its unique physiology. The creature’s skin was the color of smooth, deep brown bark. It had fur like a normal elk, but it was green and looked more like moss that covered little of the lower half of the beast’s body. The elk sported massive antlers that more closely resembled gnarled tree branches, hence its namesake, with large flower buds growing out from it. Those flower buds were more than mere decoration, however. When opened, they would produce a pollen like substance. When exposed to it, a potential predator would experience severe irritation in its eyes and respiratory system. Also, the beast was about the size of a draft horse.
Li licked his lips in anticipation. “Mhm wood chi infused venison. My meat and veggies all in one bite.”
The Gnarlwood Elk stood cautiously in a clearing in the forest. It drank from a nearby brook, occasionally scanning the area for any signs of predators.
But Gong Li’s next meal wouldn’t find him. He had been on hunts before, but this was the first time he was permitted to join in on the hunt of a spirit beast. Such a thing would normally be too dangerous for someone of his cultivation and he was not expected to take part in the hunt itself. But the important thing was that the spirit beast didn’t notice him. This was an opportunity for Li to demonstrate his ability to suppress his spiritual power. What little he had as a mortal realm cultivator, anyway. Failing to do so might cost him and others their lives the elders of his clan told him. So he was sent on this hunt alongside his cousin Gong Fang and his team of beast hunters to prove his worth.
“Ready”, whispered the man himself in the bushes on Gong Li’s left. Gong Fang sported wild, spiky black hair that shimmered in the noonday sun with oil. His lean corded muscles clearly visible, as he wasn’t wearing a shirt. They bulged as if ready to rip out of his skin as he prepared himself for the hunt.
“Ready,” To Gong Fang’s own left was a woman. Gong Yue was built tall but slender. She shared the tanned complexion that most of the Gong Clan sported, which contrasted nicely with her short, silver hair. After a brief flash of light surrounded her uplifted hands, a wooden bow with a dark blue stone above the grip appeared in her grasp.
“Fire,” Gong Fang catapulted himself out of his hiding spot and into the clearing keeping up a storm of dirt and grass as he went. Gong Yue summoned an updraft, allowing her to take flight and break off small tree branches. As she knocked her arrow, the dark blue stone socketed into her bow’s limbs glowed with sparks of lightning inside. The sparks made their way to the bow proper, and Gong Li could smell the faint hint of ozone in the air.
The beast immediately knew something was wrong, but it was too late. Just as the gnarlwood elk popped its head back up, the arrow struck its neck. The beast reeled.
Gong Fang continued his charge, summoning a massive curved cleaver from his storage ring.
Gong Li watched as the beast struggled to get back on its feet, but the electrical current from the arrow had overloaded its nervous system. It violently flung mud into the air as Gong Yue fired another arrow into its flank.
As he closed in Gong Fang launched himself over ten paces into the air. He came down on the creature’s neck hard; The weight of the sword, his body and his technique. Together they easily cleaved through the base of the creature's neck. Gore sputtered out from the elk’s body and onto Fang but he jumped away from his fallen prey before the flower buds on the antlers blossomed. The beauty of the vibrant yellow petals were marred by the red gore that now covered them.
Fang was grinning. Grinning with the mischievous glee like a kid in an abandoned candy shop.
“Yeah! That’s what I’m talking about.” Fang triumphed over his kill. His enthusiasm was contagious. Li couldn’t help but cheer as well, despite the gory scene.
As Li and Yue caught up to Fang, Yue generated a current of air around them. The current, shaped like a dome, would keep the pollen from the flowers from getting to them.
Fang looked down at Li was a few finger widths shorter. “so little cousin tell me what you think of our technique?”
“Your methods are solid. Yue using lightning to paralyze the target, which gives you time to close the distance and quickly deliver a killing blow. I initially wondered why you use a cleaver instead of a spear as a melee hunting weapon, but now I see the logic of it. Cooks typically use cleavers to cut through bone and thick meat. However, a cleaver style sword can also be an effective way of killing an enemy quickly if you have the strength and precision to wield it. If you attempted to pierce the large Grade 2 beast’s neck with a spear and raw strength alone, it wouldn’t have guaranteed a kill. Given the strong hide and healing factor of the target. But by using force chi, you can apply greater kinetic energy and wield a heavier weapon.”
Fang grinned and looked towards Yue. “Told you he was a smart one.”
“Do you use this strategy against all your targets?” Li asked.
“No. Different prey calls for different methods. Although this is the strategy we use most often. We specialize in hunting large herbivores. That’s what sells the best prices on the market, anyway. They’re also the main course for the most profitable dishes of the clan owned restaurant. Also you’d be amazed what a pair of testicles from just about any large spirit beast would go for.
Li raised a skeptical eyebrow. “Spirit beast testicles?”
Yue interjected. “Many people think the testicles of large spirit beasts make for a potent aphrodisiac and may even increase fertility. There’s not much evidence to support the claim, but who am I to deny a fool so eager to part with his money?”
Fang barked a laugh. “Especially if it’s lining my pockets, eh.”
“We should get moving now,” Yue started scanning the area. “The scars on the elk may look old, but wood aspected beasts have an especially efficient healing factor. The creature that gave it those wounds could be nearby.
“Alright then, just give me five minutes to clean my sword and wash the blood off in the brook.
As Fang made his way to the brook Li turned towards Yue. “I was wondering, cousin Yue. Why use a bow with a lightning aspected beast core instead of cultivating it yourself? It would seem like the perfect fit to supplement your wind path.”
Yue shook her head, “Well, for one, the lightning aspect is hard on the body. It’s one of the most difficult aspects to cultivate.”
“No offense, but you don’t cross me as the type who would fear a little hard work.”
“No I’m not. But…” Yue trailed off.
Yue gave Fang a regrettable expression. “Lightning is also one of the rarer aspects out there. To learn to adapt to cycling it through my meridians, any large quantity would require me to go through several Grade 2 beast cores. The clan simply doesn’t have those kinds of resources anymore. Our current situation is the reason why the elders requested we take you on this hunt with us. While your own path was designed for smithing the metal and fire aspect have obvious combat applications. They want as many of us prepared to defend the clan as possible. Should our enemies decide to take advantage of our weakness and hasten the clan’s fall.
As Li contemplated the clan’s current predicament, he found himself suddenly slapped with a torrent of water. After recovering from the initial shock, Li looked in Fang’s general direction. And there he was beaming with satisfaction in the brook over 10 paces away, sword in hand.
“You bastard.” Yue screamed.
Fang simply laughed and pulled back his weapon. He dipped the bulk of the cleaver in the water and made a sweeping motion back towards Li and Yue creating another wave of water. The water was accelerated to deceptively high velocities due to his application of force chi to enhance the swing. Yue was ready for him this time however. She generated a wall of wind chi that redirected the wave of water back at Fang. The combined force of the water and Yue’s wind technique knocked Fang off his feet submerging him in the brook’s shallow waters.
Li flicked off a piece of the gnarlwood elk’s bark-like carapace off his shoulder with a sigh of irration. “You’re a child cousin Fa-.”
Li found himself smacked hard by a current of air. He went spinning and before he knew his face smacked hard into the dirt, dazed. It took a moment to realize what had happened. Yue had struck him with her own technique. But why? He was only a mortal realm cultivator. She wouldn’t have hit him with an attack that hard, only for her own amusement.
His head was spinning, but Li did his best to lift it up and look around. It was then that he came to realize what had happened.
The impact knocked him a clean fifteen paces away, on the other side of the stream for his own safety. For the predator had arrived to claim its wounded prey.
