2023.06.03 00:22 squaredk2 How I'm J3 and on the way to FIRE by 35yo

My day for J1 is 6am to noon. My second day starts at noon and goes to 6pm. J3 is 6pm to mignight.
What I have done now is changed and manipulated time. With this method, I get 21 days a week. Stack that up over a month, I'm kicking everyones ass. Stack it up over a year and you're avacado toast. 5 years? I'll be on a yacht sippin mai tais on the coast of Italy.
And I'm not crazy. You're all crazy for thinking it takes 24 hours to work J1, just like some dude in an office did 30 years ago.
Each job is senior level, making $200k+. I even rent out my 3rd and 4th bedrooms on air bnb for $1k+/week each, since I live in a desirable tourist destination. I even have 3 sports cars that I rent for $300+/day on truro just for vacation money.
My husband is a nurse, and we use his salary alome to pay all the bills. All of my income goes directly into CDs and high-risk index funds.
All I needed was 10+ years of dev experience and a good work ethic. Literally, anyone can do it if you go through the grind of finding the right jobs in the right time zones!

2023.06.03 00:21 themasterpodcaster Water Shielding Complete Enclosure

Method One
This uses 1.25 wide 2.33ft tall 15 gallon cylindrical water containers. I'm thinking I need two layers so that I can offset the first with the second layer on the outside. Each container on the outside has its center blocking the spot where the two containers on the inside layer
meet. This makes a wall of water without weakness I hope. The wall needs to be 3.25f so it needs to be taller. On top of these containers on the inside layer of them is a single row of collapsible 5.3 gallons water containers.
I'm thinking Ill put a plywood between them and the containers underneath them so they can be pushed together and fit closely together and so the different diameter doesn't cause them to go off.
The top of the 15 gallon containers has a spot at the top where there's a gap thats a weakness. Im thinking Ill put 1 gallon water bag there perhaps partially empty to make it more malleable and the weight of
the 5 gallon container will hopefully mush it down so it fills in the uneven gaps in the top of the 15 gallon container. In front of the row of 5 gallon containers on top of the 15 gallon containers Ill put a pool tube to help block the weakness on top of the 15 gallon containers.
Ill overlap these pool tubes at the end in order to create a totally unbroken wall of water. Because the wall needs to be little taller Ill add large fomentek water bags at the top. The large fomentek bag has its top 6 inches lying on top of the 5 gallon container
and its held in place by a couple bricks wrapped in tarp or something temporarily. The bags hang down on the inside and overlap hopefully by 6 inches from bag to bag. Then you put 4 3x6x1.25 giant 140 gallon water bags on top of the structure lying perpendicular
to it. They overlap all the water walls by a foot. Then the pool tubes are put over the gaps between them. When there full you slide your hand under and remove the bricks from the water bags if possible. Or the top could be made of water bags.

Method 2
You use 6 or possibly 8 140 gallon water bags for the main wall of water. There 3ft wide, 6ft long and 1.25ft thick. First you position and fill the 15 gallon containers. You put 4 on the outside of every water bag. They weigh 120lb each and the water bag weighs
1100lb. So with 4 on one side weighing almost half as much as the water bag and the basalt and frame wall on the other side it might keep them standing up well enough. They 15 gallons are 2.33ft high and the water bags are 3ft tall standing on there side so tall
enough to hold them up. Putting another 500lb of sandbags on top of the 4 containers might work well if the water containers arnt enough. You position a 15 gallon in front of the spot where two water bags meet and then put a 5.3 gallon container on top so its
as tall as the water bag. You can also put fomenteck water bags over the crack as well if you can make them stay in place. You could two to shield one end and then two each side. The two on the end extend way outside of the actual area your shielding.
The ones on both sides form a tight wall along with the two on the end but then extend of the other side somewhat. The width of the basalt structure is 4.25ft and the length of the water bag is 6ft. So you could push the two that extend from the side of the end over
.85ft each to make room to fit the final end water bag between them. You might be able to overlap the where the waterbags meet on the lengthwise sides as well. There are different sizes you might be able to use to make it fit better. The roof of the water shielding might
bend down .25ft to meet the wall or you could put fomenteck waterbags on top perhaps. Like with the first method you might need to put something light weight on top of the structure to help prop up the water ceiling that the top of the basalt structure is roughly
level with the top of the water wall. This is a nice method in that you be able to set it up quickly because there you dont have to postion a bunch of things carefully. They just start in the position and it will only take a small number of hours for a garden hose to fill all
the containers from what I read. Its also nice because you can keep better track of the small amount of cracks. You could also use 4 inch fence posts and fence post foam or concrete possibly to hold up the water bladders. You could dig it with a 3 inch auger attached
to a well powered drill instead of using a fence post digger, shovel or a real auger. To protect the fomenteck water bags and the 5.3 gallon constrainers the more delicate ones you could use 1 or two layers of heavy cheap moving blankets.
Hopefully this would block pretty decent air guns and stuff that gang stalkers might try to shoot at them and you could protect it with plywood from the most vulnerable direction. Can also protect them from any natural damage. Then you can put a heavy tarp
to help protect them from the sun. Poly tubing might also work for water shielding especially for the roof where there isnt much pressure on it or for shielding cracks but I dont know about how you close them so no idea if it works.

The water shielding can act as an automatic sound barrior as you build I think and while you test the structure.

9 containers long is 11.25ft nearly long enough to the length of the structure 9 plus 2 containers which is 11.5
18 for first layer on sides
8 for first layer on ends since it takes exactly 4 to equal 5ft and fill in the space
26 for first layer
sides second layer is 22
ends second layer is 12
second layer is 34
total is 60 for double layer 1 heigh containers costs $1000

15 gallon containers

140 gallon water bags and other sizes

large fomentek water bag

large fomentek water bags in bulk cheaper

1.3 gallon containers
36 Pcs 1.3 Gallon Collapsible Water Storage Bag Water Container Bag Emergency Jug Clear Plastic Storage Pouch Freezable Water Carrier Tank Foldable Bottle for Outdoor Sport Camping Hiking Backpack

5.3 gallon collapsible containers not quite as big as they say for the ones I measured that i got from walmart after I filled them up to the absolute top. It was 10 inches wide 12 inches deep and 10 inches high or something.

pool water bag 10ft long and is it 1ft wide? $9 and free shipping

You could use a pop up gazebo or a more quickly set up greenhouse or possibly a soft storage shed wich is similar if there big enough. You set up the pop up gazebo and then build it inside of it. The gazebo is more respectable and accepted by
landlords and stuff then a big tent or tarp. Put a heavy tarp over the gazebo possibly to protect it from weather and other damage. If the amount of steel or aluminum in it is too much in the gazebo and messes up the shielding you might be able move it off of the
structure with a person or 4 wheeled doly on each leg ( just a random idea).

The economy will get worse as far as I know and will possibly collapse. Gas prices will rise during the summer at least. Basalt and other materials and items might become less available.
The warm weather will end eventually making it a lot harder to complete a large structure. I certainly feel texteme urgency because of my rapid mental and physical decline and also these reasons.
Also as far as I understand it which is quite limited the world is getting worse and more controling, gang stalking will probably get more alot more empowered and there technology is getting better.
But the best way to move effectively is still to be smart and deliberate to test things as far as I know. It takes time to be smart so you should get started on it.


I didnt condense my questions enough i just tried to cover everything mostly even though I must have missed alot of things. I leave it to you to judge what information I need the most and to answer the questions and give other information
in the most helpful way you have time for. What I need urgently is to order my basalt and my water containers and I can figure out the other details as the stuffs on the way. So I need to be able to decide on a rough plan and on a type of basalt so I can order my
basalt. I need to know if water shielding is going to helpful for me and how much water I need.

So I'm trying to block RNM because sinking up there attacks with my thoughts is an incredibly important part of the attacks. I want to block the mental attacks themselves but blocking the RNM will probably be enough to make that stop
by itself. I also need to block them making me feel emotionally numb, low energy, extremely depressed lack a void of happiness chemicals or something and making extremely unintelligent and cant form thoughts. These symptoms all vary at the
same time and seem parts of the same attack. Sometimes when its bad its also very hard to move and I can perceive my body as heavy and stuck and strange. My consciousness is compressed and receads as if I dont exist and I become dethatched
Also reduces anxiety. Happened when I was writing this because speaking about it is a trigger for them and I had to wait for find the words. Other TIs talk about similar symptoms.

These symptoms can all change

an extreme amount in just a second since its artificial and they change based on triggers that hold an emotional charge and significance to my attackers.

So i'm only trying to block them attacking my brain.

How should the basalt be around my body compared to around my head?

How thick should it be around my feet compared to my body?

I think you said that you need it double thick above your head and behind it but in the pictures of your set up it showed 1 full crate above and 1 full crate behind the same as the full crate on either side.
Is it true that you need it double thick above and double thick protection behind while in a prone position?

Why is that? Is above more important just because of the angle of attack or that part of the brain?

Is this also going to be true with me whos not trying to block physical attacks? Will my forehead or face or top of head or both be more vulnerable?
Since all im trying to block are the RNM, mental attacks and perhaps nervous system influence ( just totally guessing about that last comment )

In your photos you have pillowcases with basalt on top of the side crates and back crate covering the crack where they meet the top crate. The pillowcases only give you like 3 inches of protection. How does that actually work to block the crack?

Why dont you need basalt to block the vertical cracks between the crates?

I cant get a good handle on why you dont need 2 crates high 2 crates deep and 3 crates wide with one removed for your head to get the protection.

Why dont you need basalt to block the vertical cracks between the crates?

How much do you think the protection varies by thickness? If you double it or half it how much does the protection multiply or divide?

What's the highest amount you think youve divided the attacks by and what was the weakness that stopped you from dividing it further?

Could I divide it more than that and how?

Do you think RNM and mental attacks will require more or less basalt then physical attacks. They seem to be able to intrude on my mind for reading or attacking to a
very unusual degree and none of my shielding tests have effected it at all for many years although I've done some which might be very strong ones.

Do you think I need water with my basalt since it will cost me $1000 or $1500 to $2500? I think i've seen you say it blocks DC heavy pressure. Is that a single type of physical attack or an important aspect of electromagnetism?

What are the chances they could use DC heavy pressure in a mental?

Will all types of attacks be blocked with the combination of basalt and water if you have enough?

is that the magic combination for everyone or just for your physical attacks.

Whats the ratio in thickness of water to basalt for a full shield of water?

How much do you think the amount of time I spend inside it will affect how well it works. Like will spending only 2 hours in it be a lot inferior then being able to spend 24 hours or a week.

What do you think about how to build it?

Do you think it would be ok to use small nail gun nails in the frame since the mainstay bags that you have metal on them?

What are angles of attack and how does it make sense to set up my thicker protection

I need any kind of help you can give me with this project. Iv been working on this plan and this post for 6 to 12 days where the majority of my work everyday was on it. Then other weeks and months
on similar plans and research on making basalt shielding happen. So it takes me forever to do anything even though I labor all day during the time im not recovering from it. It doesnt seem like I'm capable of
taking in the information on what basalt shields and on the measurements and to figure out how to classify my attacks. I had to make a simple summary of the most simple aspects of using basalt and water
to understand it and that must have taken me a day or more of work to piece together different posts and to organize.

2023.06.03 00:17 VPackardPersuadedMe War over trans lobby is manna for the right - The Times
War over trans lobby is manna for the right new
Only obsessive minorities on opposing fringes benefit from a confected combat in which most of us are on the same side Matthew Parris
Friday June 02 2023, 9.00pm BST, The Times Take a guess. If you had to name the single best thing that has happened for the British political right in recent years, the manna from heaven for politicians and political commentators, what would it be? The implosion of the Scottish National Party? Delicious, admittedly, but even better for Labour. Immigration? Freighted with doubt. Jeremy Corbyn? A bonanza but a one-off.
No: I’ve spotted a gift that just keeps on giving, a never-ending conflict with a hopelessly unpopular foe, a media column that’s endlessly readable, a Tory minister’s applause-line that never fails. I give you . . . the Why Oh Why War with Woke: a so-called culture war of marvellous ferocity, winning readers, viewers and voters as avid spectators — yet a civil war in which almost the entire nation is actually on the same side.
But what fun! Medals for courage in combat against . . . well, whom? Some nutters in The Guardian, a gaggle of pointless dons and dizzy undergraduates, and a handful of self-appointed spokespersons whose names escape us. What a battlefield on which to prove yourself. Thank you, oh Divine Provider of fodder for the right, thank you for that standing ovation in the middle of my speech, thank you for that new commission for the extra column in The Daily Telegraph, thank you for that career-enhancing opportunity to be shouted at by an unlikeable person on a studio sofa on morning TV. Woke has been the making of the anti-woke, nothing but a bonus for the right and nothing but a headache for sensible progressives on the centre left. And the latest and biggest dollop of heaven-sent manna has descended thanks to what we may in convenient shorthand call the “trans lobby”.
A gift! I’ll wager that hardly a single vote has been forgone by the Conservative Party nor a single reader lost by any right-of-centre publication — and powerful new support gained — by their sallies against “the woke warriors” of trans, with their he/him/she/hethey/them preferred pronouns and impossible positions on women’s weightlifting. Poor old Sir Ed Davey and stammering Sir Keir Starmer, trapped by “what is a woman?”. Caught in the crossfire, they babble obvious nonsense and hope nobody notices.
What more could the right hope for than to see the left tangled up in all this? How many readers that The Guardian didn’t already have is that newspaper winning by forcing out columnists who dare risk being dubbed “trans-exclusionary radical feminists” (terfs). Meanwhile the tripe-exclusionary radical commentators (tercs) are having the time of their lives.
Be in no doubt. The grotesque billowing of enthusiasm for gender reassignment that we’ve been living through did need voices brave enough to call it out. Janice Turner in this newspaper is one of those, and I admire her greatly. Kathleen Stock has been a warrior who never asked for the battle she had to fight and deserves her growing reputation not just as a warrior but as a thinker and writer. Be in no doubt, too, that real children have been chemically and physically mutilated, real young heads turned, by the flaring of a dangerous fashion for an idea that had to be confronted. We needed people such as Janice (no right-winger herself) to say and report these things.
Be in no doubt, either, that some men and some women have always experienced an irrepressible longing to live as the opposite sex so far as anyone can. Stigmatising such people is cruel and wrong. They must have respect, and we could talk about the issues this raises, which are complicated, like grown-ups. We could, but we don’t. So I stand back. Not for lack of thought, nor fear of being “savaged on Twitter”, wherever that is. But as a columnist and ex-politician I detect a growing relationship of mutual dependence, a symbiosis, between quite small, obsessive minorities on opposing fringes of a society that is itself neither divided nor angry, but enjoys the fireworks. Most of Britain are simply spectators. This is a blood sport for non-combatants, not a real culture war.
“Who, whom?” was Lenin’s guiding question. Who gains, at whose expense? I discern three groups of gainers. First there are Stonewall and the serious trans activists and self-appointed spokesmen for other nebulous organisations. Can you remember any of their names? This issue forms the only platform, the only definition they have, attracts the only spotlight, airtime and print coverage they can get, and without it they are nothing, and simply disappear. Stonewall, likewise, is making good money “advising” on these issues. But the whole crowd cannot amount to more than a few thousand souls.
The second group of gainers are their political adversaries: mostly Tory politicians, mostly on the right of their party. Few cheers are available for their Gradgrind economics, even from Tory activists, but they get a warm reception for their attacks on the “wokerati”. The right love the trans debate just as they once loved Tony Benn. Something to kick at. It’s making them feel relevant again.
Third, I’m afraid, are we commentators. There are journalists’ households in Britain where, were it not for woke-bashing, the children would not eat. Tercs are giving new meaning to the expression “dining out”. These, then, are the Who: predators and scavengers. And the Whom; the victims? In the trans “debate” I identify two categories. First, and most to be sympathised with, are what I suspect may be the great majority of transsexual people. I know one or two. Privacy is what they crave. They just want to get on with their lives, and are doing so with no help at all from their self-styled representatives, some of whose outlandish claims and aggression simply embarrass them.
The second category are the realistic centre left. They are being made monkeys of, caught between the terfs, the tercs and the trans-activists on an issue that has nothing to do with their policies or philosophy. I know and you know what Starmer undoubtedly knows to be a woman. Enough said.
But in a sense there’s one more category of victim, and that’s you, the general reader, wasting time and even indignation on something that, in the deepest sense of the word, isn’t even happening. About 99 per cent of us do know what a woman is, don’t wish to be hurtful, and don’t feel remotely torn, just sometimes a bit bemused. If you want common sense, read Janice Turner. And for the rest, stop thinking about it, stop talking about it, it will finally go away, and later generations will wonder what came over us

2023.06.03 00:12 Adept_Victory3201 31 [M4F] UK/anywhere. British professor feeling introspective

I love my job, I work with great people, and I am doing some really satisfying work. However I can’t seem to shake this somewhat flat feeling. I’ve moved around the UK for a while now and it often leads to fleeting friendships and a lack of stability. Consequently it gets a bit lonely- so here we are. I’ve written a little about me here:
6ft, Blue eyes, brown hair
I love my sport (both watching and playing) Often love to read but need a good recommendation to get me back into it again. Hiking is great fun, it gives you real sense of accomplishment. I want to travel more and would love to hear some of your stories.

2023.06.03 00:10 fur_fox_sake_ AITA for not going to my friends’ kid’s sporting events?

My husband (35M) and I (35F) are good friends with a couple who we’ll call Justin (40M) and Maddie (40F). We once worked at the same company as Justin and over the course of 10 years became close with them. They have 3 children: 11F, 9M and 7M. They own a boat on a lake and they like to invite us over to hang out on the lake, have game nights and dinner. This does mean that their kids are usually around when we are together and we’re happy to entertain and play with them. It’s very rare that they get a sitter to go out on double dates or go out on dates themselves. I think that over the years, Justin and Maddie have become comfortable with having us over and seeing us with their children and their children enjoy seeing us as well. My husband and I currently do not have kids of our own.
Maddie is a stay at home super mom. She’s a planner and is very involved in her children’s lives. She ensures that they have a full agenda of activities and are involved in sports and she loves it and I love that for her. She is also involved in her local PTA and has a solid group of mom friends that she’s met through PTA and community events.
I personally feel that Justin could really help her out more. There have been times when we have been over where my husband and I are helping Maddie get the children to bed and Justin isn’t engaged. He travels often for work, works late or is out golfing with colleagues. Due to this lack of support, I am one of the people she reaches out to for favors (I assume she asks others but I am not sure). My husband and I both work and are in high level leadership roles at our respective companies so we recognize the work commitments Justin faces.
I’ve driven one of her sons to his baseball games when her other son was playing on a different field. I’ve even helped watch her kids when Justin had surgery and she would visit him during recovery. One favor I declined to do was to be at Maddie’s home when the kids got off the bus at 3pm because her FIL was getting discharged after having heart surgery and Justin was at work and had a meeting. I too had a meeting at 3pm that day and was in the office an hour away. I couldn’t understand why Justin couldn’t take time off for a family medical emergency. At this point, I was beginning to question all these favors we were being asked when it came to child care. I was annoyed that they were asked with no regard to our job schedules and with little to no explanation as to why Justin wasn’t around to help. Messages to me would also imply that since I could sometimes work from home or didn’t have kids, I should be around /free to help.
One day, I was asked day of, if I could take her daughter to gymnastics and again was annoyed because she had to be there by 4pm. I still had more work to do. I was venting to my husband and he reminded me that they were great friends who always welcomed us into their home and that acts of kindness like this is a small way to show up for our friends. So he picked up her daughter at their home and dropped her off at gymnastics and brought her back when practice was over. He ran errands in between. Months later we are at a Christmas party with friends and a different friend was talking about her own daughter’s gymnastic competitions. Out of nowhere Maddie makes a comment/joke that my husband likes watching girls’ gymnastic practices. The table got quiet and my husband was shocked, upset and uncomfortable. He only dropped her off that one time and did not observe the practice as Maddie was claiming. I too was upset because of what it implied and already felt very taken advantage of. Luckily the comment wasn’t acknowledged since it really had nothing to do with the conversation and our other friends didn’t bothered to entertain it. We both were so upset and but chose not to say anything at the party.
We did decide to re-evaluate the amount of support we would be giving to Justin and Maddie. Our thoughts were that we didn’t want to loose the friendship but we could set better boundaries on what we were able to do. Perhaps we should have recognized earlier that it was strange we were the ones to be called when they had other parents in their community they could rely on. I remember getting dropped off at soccer by my teammates parents when mine couldn’t. We also decided that it wasn’t worth confronting Maddie because she wouldn’t take the feedback well or maturely. I also feared that the discussion could dive into Justin’s lack of support when it came to raising their children and that is not our place to comment. I also had heard from a mutual friend that some of the mom’s in the mom group were beginning exit the mom group because Maddie was overbearing. Maddie is also very insecure and is in denial about other issues she and and her family has so it didn’t seem right to pile our disappointment on top of that when we could simply change how we interacted with them.
For months, Maddie and Justin would invite us to watch their boys’ soccer and baseball games on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings. We declined to attend, we never attended games before and we also don’t do this for our other friend’s. Also, watching children’s sports is the last thing we want to do on Friday nights/Saturday mornings. Maddie mentioned that she would like to see me come to one of the games and that it was so much fun as her and her mom friends fill their yeti’s with cocktails and have a blast. I assume to entice me into thinking it was as cool as going out to a bar. I said that it sounded like a fun time for them especially since they needed to be there but I had other commitments during those times (watching Succession obviously). She didn’t understand and she continues to ask me to show up to her kids’ events. The most recent ask was to run a motheguardian-daughter 5K with her daughter because she couldn’t run. I’m a runner and this is something I would love to do but I also don’t want this to spark a debate about showing up for one kid and not the others. I feel bad that I haven’t been fully honest about my reasons but I just think that there’s so much to unpack with their family dynamic that I’m respectfully choosing to stay out of it and continue to politely decline. Am I the asshole?

2023.06.03 00:04 MotivicRunner 2023 Florence/Rome Diamond League Discussion -- Fast times abound in the distance races!

I was busy last night and didn't get a chance to create a preview post, so instead we get a post-meet discussion thread. Our third stop in the Diamond League season takes us to the Italian city of Florence. Most athletes have started to figure out where they currently stand based on their season openers, and now it is time for them to start sharpening themselves for the road to the Budapest world championships. This is as good a time as any to encourage everyone reading this to bookmark the Road to Budapest page in order to keep track of who holds the automatic qualification standards in their respective events and how qualification based on world rankings currently looks.
Going into this meet, the men's 100m was set to be a marquee matchup between Fred Kerley and Marcell Jacobs up until Jacobs had to pull out due to injury. Also on the schedule was an exciting women's 400m with Femke Bol looking to continue building on very quick season opener in order to challenge Sydney McLaughlin-Levrone later on this summer at the Budapest world championships.
In the distance events, the two star events were the men's 5000m and the women's 1500m. The men's 5000m, which was one of the deepest races ever at this meet two years ago, had a field filled with talent: 13 men with sub-13:00 outdoor PBs (Stewart McSweyn, Mo Katir, Thierry Ndikumwenayo, Berihu Aregawi, Telahun Bekele, Woody Kincaid), 7 of whom have run sub-12:50 (Moh Ahmed, Selemon Barega, Yomif Kejelcha, Nicholas Kipkorir, Jacob Krop, Joshua Cheptegei, Grant Fisher). The hype around the women's 1500m, in contrast, was all about the absolute pinnacle of the field: a world record attempt by Faith Kipyegon.
Some personal thoughts from the meet to get the discussion going (spoilers ahead!):
Feel free to use this thread to discuss the meet.

2023.06.02 23:23 k07738 Choosing between a few different breeds

Hello! I am thinking about getting a puppy sometime in the next year and am going back and forth between 4 breeds: Miniature american shepherd, australian shepherd, kooiker, and sheltie. They all have certain things in common and I'm having trouble choosing which would be best. Thoughts are appreciated, especially if you have had one or more of the breeds and can give a bit of first hand comparison between them. Also feel free to suggest another breed if you think it fits well or better than one of those I mentioned. 1) Will this be your first dog? If not, what experience do you have owning/training dogs? No. I grew up with a medium sized mixed shelter dog (we adopted him when he was 9 months and he lived to be 17!!!). We also got a Pomeranian puppy when I was 19ish. I later adopted an adult (5 years old) Golden Retriever, he was reactive and we trained on this with help from a behaviorist so I know a bit about working with special issues. So I am familiar with dogs but have never raised a dog from a puppy without my family being involved as well. 2) Do you have a preference for rescuing a dog vs. going through a [reputable breeder]( I want to go through a breeder for various reasons. 3) Describe your ideal dog. A dog that can come everywhere and wants to engage with me and train. Eager to please, smart, adaptable, can be calm and stable in busy environments, affectionate. 4) What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why? I have gone through looking at a lot of breeds and I think I am now mostly focused on shelties, kooikers, aussies, and MAS. I like that they are all active and eager to please, highly trainable, and bond closely with their families but aren't overly friendly with strangers. I have read that shelties and kooikers both can tolerate days off from activity well (this of course also depends on finding a breeder who can match we with an appropriate puppy as there is variation). Aussies/minis are amazingly versatile but definitely seem higher energy, so here I think finding the right match could be more difficult.
5) What sorts of things would you like to train your dog to do? Primarily just to be calm or neutral in many situations so that they aren't limited in where they can go. I also want to use this as a chance to learn a lot more about dog training and dog sports, so go to lots of classes and pursue whatever the dog and I find fun. 6) Do you want to compete with your dog in a sport (e.g. agility, obedience, rally) or use your dog for a form of work (e.g. hunting, herding, livestock guarding)? If so, how much experience do you have with this work/sport? I don't have experience yet but want to try different dog sports, not to compete but to fulfill the dog and do something fun together. **Care Commitments** 7) How long do you want to devote to training, playing with, or otherwise interacting with your dog each day? For physical exercise and training 1-2 hours (outside of days we have a class or a weekend when we can go for a long hike or ski trip). I have flexible home office hours so I will also be home just hanging out with the dog for around 14-18 hours a day. 8) How long can you exercise your dog each day, on average? What sorts of exercise are you planning to give your dog regularly and does that include using a dog park? If by exercise we are talking purely physical exercise: around an hour in the form of walks and play. But as noted above I want to spend 1-2 hours total on things that would wear the dog out, such as physical exercise and mental stimulation/training. 9) How much regular brushing are you willing to do? Are you open to trimming hair, cleaning ears, or doing other grooming at home? If not, would you be willing to pay a professional to do it regularly? I'm happy to brush a few times a week and of course do trimming and ear cleaning as needed to keep the dog clean, comfortable, and looking nice. **Personal Preferences** 10) What size dog are you looking for?
medium 11) How much shedding, barking, and slobber can you handle? Can handle some shedding and barking. I think slobber is not great for me. 12) How important is being able to let your dog off-leash in an unfenced area? This would be super nice, but not necessary. **Dog Personality and Behavior** 13) Do you want a snuggly dog or one that prefers some personal space? Snuggly 14) Would you prefer a dog that wants to do its own thing or one that’s more eager-to-please? 100% eager to please 15) How would you prefer your dog to respond to someone knocking on the door or entering your yard? How would you prefer your dog to greet strangers or visitors? In a perfect world they would be calm and unfazed, but I also don't mind if they bark a bit or want to greet. 16) Are you willing to manage a dog that is aggressive to other dogs? No, I don't feel confident in this.
17) Are there any other behaviors you can’t deal with or want to avoid? Because I really want the dog to be able to join us lots of places and travel with us I want to avoid reactivity. **Lifestyle** 18) How often and how long will the dog be left alone? Around 8-10 hours day on weekdays, but no more than 6 hours in a stretch. 19) What are the dog-related preferences of other people in the house and what will be their involvement in caring for the dog? I have a partner, we will both care for the dog but are in agreement about what we want. 20) Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets? What breed or type of animal are they?
We have a young cat, a rescue around 1.5 years old. 21) Will the dog be interacting with children regularly? No, but they should be ok with children.
22) Do you rent or plan to rent in the future? If applicable, what breed or weight restrictions are on your current lease? Rent, no restrictions. 23) What city or country do you live in and are you aware of any laws banning certain breeds? I'm not aware of any breed bans. 24) What is the average temperature of a typical summer and winter day where you live? In the summer highs around 68F and in the winter highs around 32F **Additional Information and Questions** 25) Please provide any additional information you feel may be relevant. My partner and I are active people who like being outside (climbing, hiking, skiing) and we both have a lot of flexibility in our schedules for the next year and a half to raise a puppy. We also both want to really train the dog to a high level. I'm interested in sports and my partner is interested in crazy tricks, so we want to really engage with the dog and hope the dog will have some good drive to work. 26) Feel free to ask any questions below.

2023.06.02 23:20 espiller1 [DISCUSSION] The Anthropocene Reviewed by John Green • Chapters 19 - 21

Welcome friends, it's John Green o'clock again as we dig into more of The Anthropocene Reviewed. Today's check-in covers Chapter 19: Penguins of Madagascar, Chapter 20: Piggly Wiggly and Chapter 21: The Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest.
Chapter 19: Penguins of Madagascar. Begins with Green talking about the Beatles and why some people think Ringo is the best. He discusses proactive opinions and how he believes the opening scene of the Penguins of Madagascar is a cinematic triumph. In the film the producers describe the 'silly little snow clowns' as they go off on an adventure. Green then goes on to discuss lemmings and the misconception that they can spontaneously generate 🤣 as well as that they self correct for population growth via mass suicide. These stereotypes were brought for due to a film called White Wilderness) and a scenes shot in Calgary (so close to my hometown!). Green sums up his argument that the lengths we will go to hold onto a lie and how we as humans will mostly mindlessly follow rules. Green rates the opening scene of Penguins of Madagascar 4.5 stars
Unrelated, but I'll always think of Cumberbatch when I here the word Penguins.
Chapter 20: Piggly Wiggly.
Opens as Green talks about his great grandfather Roy, who worked in a grocery store. He then discusses the introduction of self-serve grocery stores including the infamous Piggly Wiggly grocery store which opened in 1916. After just a year there were 350 stores. Green comments that the stores were able to replenishing the earth and brought down the price of goods. Campbell and Oreo became the top soup and cookie brands (and still are today). Green discusses briefly the effect of mass media and brand awareness. By 1922, there were 1000 Piggly Wiggly stores but, Saunders got too greedy and that mixed with his own bullying behaviour, led to his downfall. He then invented grocery stores with meat counters, etc like the super markets of today and went on to find success again. After Saunders got greedy again and met his second bankruptcy, he thought of a machine operated store with no staff. Unfortunately, it failed, and Green goes on to discuss how the big companies get bigger, but eating the small. 2.5 stars.
Chapter 21: The Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest. Nathan's hot dogs started in 1916 in Coney Island, New York. Everything has changed over the years to how it used to feel but on July 4th, the hot dog brand holds its yearly hot dog eating contest. It started in 1967 with 127 hot dogs eaten by the winner in one hour! Now, it's a 10 minute contest. The introductions on ESPN are longer than the actual contest since competitive eating is a sport. Green introduced me to the term 'Reversal of Fortune' and compares the contest to how Americans strive to get more than you actually want in life. He discusses the atmosphere of a contest and how *when you have the microphone, what you say matters**. 2 stars.
Join us on June 4th when u/spreebiz will present the next three chapters - 22: CNN, 23: Harvey and 24: The Yips.
As always, feel free to pop over to the Marginalia and chat away!
Happy Friday 🥂

2023.06.02 23:18 WillTally Casual mixed usage recco

I'm an averaged height guy looking to buy a decent mixed road and trail usage bike for casual exercise/leisure riding. Most usage will be done around a well paved ~1 mile loop of my hilly neighborhood however I'm very close to some decent mixed use hiking trails (mostly flat with packed dirt and leaves) so I'd like the ability to ride on those as well. Definitely will *not* be doing any racing or serious mountain biking or using it to commute or anything like that though. I'm thinking a hybrid bike would be best but not too sure on brands/models. I had a lot of bikes as a kid but haven't purchased one in a long time.
My budget ideally is sub $500 but I'm the kind of person who will stretch their budget a bit if it means something significantly better for not much more money ($700-$800 total max). Good value is most important to me so if I can get 95% (functionally... aesthetics not too important) of the bike for half the money, so that kind of scenario is probably my preference. I'm definitely not opposed to buying used either. First thing that caught my eye locally was a used Trek Dual Sport 2 hybrid for $375... would that be good? Didn't see much else used locally online but I haven't hit up any of the local bike shops yet. I will once I have a better idea of what I should be looking for.
Anyways, what would you recommend?

2023.06.02 23:12 FluffyHamburgler Dive bar recommendations in Fisherman's Wharf?

Does anyone have a good dive bar recommendation near Fisherman's Wharf for a guy looking to mingle with locals and maybe some tourists on a Friday night?
I saw the Red Jack Saloon and International Sports Bar but I'm not quite sold on those.

2023.06.02 23:11 somemore_of_what PSA to travel baseball parents: don't forget about your other kids.

I have friends and family members now having their kids get old enough to play travel baseball. Having grown up around it, I thought I'd share my story and tell you what I tell them.
I had an older brother growing up who was a very talented ball player. Parents got him started in travel ball at around 9 years old. It was pretty much a year round thing, and they were taking him on a handful of trips each year to play baseball. The team he played on was one of the best in the county, and he played with and against several guys who went pro. They were pretty dead set on helping him play in college and go pro himself some day.
With all of this money and time spent on his baseball play, my little brother and I got a bit "left behind". We never had any money left over for us to enjoy vacations. Parents spent less time with us because there was always some baseball game to go to or some trip/showcase for him to play. It meant our little league games or other events like birthdays, etc. were missed because the older brother's baseball was prioritized.
It was tough on us because my parents didn't help us get the same opportunities. Did we want to play travel ball? Of course, but because of the sunk cost with our older sibling they couldn't afford it for us. And they told us both when we were young that we weren't good enough to play travel ball.
At the end of the day, all that money spent and my brother ended up playing 1 year of college ball before dropping out. He ended up fine, but I think looking back they regret missing out on some of the important moments of mine and my younger brothers childhood because of baseball.
I still love the game but it's a little hurtful to watch given the history. I feel like it's a great sport, but because of a difference in natural talent level (and money), it took away the attention from us growing up.
TL;DR, if you have one kid in travel ball make sure you're supporting your other kids in their activities too. There's more to life than just baseball.

2023.06.02 23:01 krmiller01 Let Me Tell You A Story Of THE Best AD In America

Let Me Tell You A Story Of THE Best AD In America
Let me tell you a story about the BEST AD in the United States. Two months ago, I went into the AD in Texarkana, Texas and asked to talk about getting on a list for a steel sports model. Having never stepped foot in there in my life, I was fully expecting to be laughed outta there.
The owner heard me, comes up to me and introduces himself, and treats me like the president of united states for the next half hour, like I was the most special customer on the planet. He explained he didn't have any at the moment but took down my info of my top 3 and would call me if it came up.
Expecting my info to be thrown in the trash the second I left, he texted me an hour later to thank me for coming in.
Flash forward two months later, I get a text that he had a James Cameron Sea Dweller if I wanted it. I kindly asked to pass and asked to be considered for an all black Sea Dweller if one ever comes in. He texted me back and said he'd have one coming in a few days and offered me that one.
Here is where it gets good. It was horrible timing; I kindly explained that I was closing on a house in two weeks and I was told no major purchases. He understood, just had me put a $1k deposit down and said he'd hold it for two weeks until after I closed.
After I closed on the home, I walked in, and was greeted by name and felt right at home. Of all of the horror stories of ADs, there are great ones out there!
