2023.06.01 03:26 pixel__panda The worst feeling for me right now, is knowing that it just doesn’t matter how much I write / speak, how carefully I word it, or how compassionately & hopelessly I try to help him understand…
He will never understand me, or even genuinely try to understand me, if I need something from him emotionally or feel upset over something that happened involving him.
I’ve written a humiliating number of paragraphs. I’ve peppered in “I love you” and reassuring statements in between every ‘critique’ that I have. Still, this all just hit me after my last attempt at ‘opening up’.
I guess at this point in my life with him, whenever he prompts me to share my feelings (or in this case I basically just need to finally get it out), I more or less get a visceral reaction of panic, uncontrollable crying, absolute fear. I’ve never been this way. I couldn’t believe how my body was reacting to the mere idea of sharing my thoughts and feelings .. ESPECIALLY involving him & our relationship.
You know what f*king sucks? He actually sat through everything that I had to say and had been trying to say unsuccessfully for months. Granted we were on the phone, but holy moly, to have this feeling that he was open, listening, caring, maaaaaybe even a touch of possible empathy (ok that’s too far) .. I legit wanted to do a tap dance afterwards!
I told him to just take some time to process it and that I love him and want a future with him. I felt like I explained everything so clearly and with the entire tone and purpose of wanting us to work. It must have taken over an hour but he seemed to be handling it -fairly- well.
Two days later? Dive bomb. Crash. Complete guilt and desperation to UNDO UNDO UNDO. His ‘conclusions’ were, despite my crippling efforts, all the same: - “Yeah I just don’t understand” - “We’re not on the same page AT . ALL.” - “You berated me for two weeks and stonewalled me and now you want to keep doing it!” (Aka I had a emergency heart problems and told him I needed a break because things just kept getting worse and I made a point to mention to him how important it is he tries to be more compassionate to me to continue moving forward - this time is not like others, my LITERAL heart (health) is on the line.) - “I don’t care anymore I can’t make you wait for me to be better (???) just go ahead and be single like you want.” - “You broke me, I am physically I’ll from this!” (O the irony ….)
I could die trying to gain his unconditional love in these moments, to receive non-judgmental listening and some form of validation I’ve read about in all of the “communication” self-relationship-help articles. To feel like he suddenly thinks, “holy sh1t, this is serious, I should really try to listen and she seems eager for us to move forward together, we love each other” …
Why the hell am I imagining this?^ Why the hell am I not surprised? Why the hell do I fall forward to him like a sick puppy and profusely apologize, revoking ALL of the thought, time, effort and breath that I put out to BRAVELY (pathetic as that sounds) stand up for myself, my health, and my wellbeing - hell, even as an outsider looking in - KNOWING that his treatment has not been kind or fair?
How I cried and told him how horrible I’ve been and after everything I’ve done for myself the past month and a half, I cried for him back and told him how much I miss us and want to be back together.
This is sick. Who even am I? To top it all off, I’ve started lying profusely to him; something that I have, since entering the realm of adulthood and serious relationships, struggled too much with my level of empathy to even consider! Not even in my childhood and teenage life have I lied so much. I can only conclude to the current state of actually losing my mind, the plead for validation, love, care etc that I’m desperately seeking, a mix of both, xyz….
I can say that this current moment in my life is undoubtedly one of the worst … it could be the worst, actually, given I seem to have lost myself and am doing and becoming everything that is opposite to who I am.
I’m lost and I’m scared and this post has gone off the rails from my initial ‘brief’ rant idea .. I truly have never felt so alone I’m my life aside from the birds I sit with outside everyday (birding is saving me right now mentally tho idk how much more of the ‘real me’ is even there at the moment)
I’m grateful for this community and I have no idea what is going to happen, I don’t even know what the heck I WANT to happen, but I dream of better days.

2023.06.01 03:25 Wooly44 Player agency is almost nonexistent at the moment
I am getting really burnt out on how the game is playing at the moment, which is driven by a couple of factors:
So much of the game currently resides on lucking out and getting build pieces for whatever you have at the moment, and not anything else. A lot of the flexibility I've found in the past is only given now by things like early duo or huge board presence early on.
You also simply do not have enough health. Health being as low as it is with the potential for whoever is much stronger than you (either dependent on them being an early-power focused hero or just simply a highroller) makes those fifth place games feel that much more like a waste of time, and that much more common.
If you don't get a good start, you lose. The power of early tier minions having gotten higher and higher makes for a ludicrously huge power disparity between individual players' boards, and it is entirely luck dependent. Taking eco cards like scouts right now unless you are really strong is laughable. This makes playing the rest of the game out again feel pointless, and as though you have little to no control over the outcome.
All of this plays into what feels like an almost entirely luck driven experience that you have little say in affecting change in for way more games than I'd like to play. And it's only gonna get worse with the addition of diablo. Very not excited for the future unless some big changes happen.

2023.06.01 03:25 OujaRevive Older color dragon shields are more durable?
I think i remember reading somewhere that dragon shield matte with older colors has better durability (emerald, blue, and ruby iirc) How's your experience with that?
I'm done with the dual matte as it gets sticky sooooooo quickly even tho I always play with a clean hand + playmat and wanna go back to regular matte but I know they had quality issues in some of their last batches so I just wanna make sure first

2023.06.01 03:25 GrecoRomanWrastler My parents are prisoners in their own home
My reddit colleages, I come to you in my time of need. My family is in crisis and I need advice. This is a long one, so buckle up.
So about 10 years ago my sister (50) lost a job and couldn't pay rent. My parents agreed to let her move back in to go to school. Unfortunately against my advice, she decided to get a degree in a niche area without many jobs. She graduated a few years ago and is working part time jobs in the field but making shit money, has no benefits, and is having a hard time finding a fulltime job.
The first thing to know here is that my sister is the most difficult person I have ever met, and saying she is a bitch would be a massive understatement. She is basically a teenager in an adult body and I have never met anyone else like this.
And my parents are the nicest people ever, and have always had to help her in one way or another. So when she couldn't pay rent they let her move in. A year later when she couldn't afford the storage unit, they gave up the garage. When she graduated, they paid so she could fly across the country to her graduation. And during all this time, she hasn't paid a penny towards the household, but is somehow in debt. Oh and did I mention the home cooked meals? Because I sure as fuck will get to that.
As far as the living situation, they are all in a tiny house and it has become completely toxic. My sister verbally abuses my mom every day. It doesn't matter what my mom says or does, she will get yelled at for no reason. We are talking about crazy shit. And if my mom dares respond, then she is told that she is "nasty", or called her a "bitch" among many other things.
She can't even control herself when I come to visit and we always get into fights about it and I am told to "shut the fuck up and mind my business". She is completely in denial of her behavior. I have seen her lose her shit because my mom dared to suggest that she cook something for herself. She has even lashed out several times and said "I can't stand this fucking family". She walks around looking absolutely miserable and the negative energy consumes the room when she walks in.
And during this time my father came down with a serious health condition and he's not even free from her bullshit. He can barely walk and has been yelled at for eating stuffing she wanted.
But beyond that, she is a control freak and has competely taken over the house. She controls the AC, TV volumes, and lights, at all times. If my parents change the AC, she will literally come out of her room within a minute to change it back. If we are in the living room, she will change the lights to her liking, and then go in her room and close the door. When she decides it's bedtime, living room is off limits and my parents are forced to go into their room. And "bedtime" is several hours before she actually goes to sleep. She just wants my parents in their room so she can enjoy silence.
They have become prisoners in their own home, and feel like they can't even leave their bedroom. But she will also barge in their room anytime she pleases. It's her house, they just pay for it and get in her way.
Now let's get to the fucking dinners. Even though she verbally abuses my mom on a daily basis, she also expects my mom in her 70s to make her home cooked meals every night. To the extent that she will text "what's for dinner" every day. And if it's cooked wrong, or the serving size is incorrect, it's time to yell at the chef. And guess who doesn't pay for any of this food? Getting takeout tonight? Guess who's paying. She has never so much as offered to pay for a pizza. If my parents meet their friends at a restaurant, they are expected to bring her home dinner. And my parents are still trying to work so they can support all 3 of them. And then after she is served, she won't say a fucking word, and will continue looking miserable.
I know the first thing the people are going to say is that they have enabled her to get to this point. Absolutely true and they realize it. And now it has been going on for so long and they are overwhelmed and don't know how to escape the situation. They have enough to deal with due to my father's health issues, and he doesn't have the mental strength to deal with this anymore. My mom is depressed, cries, and is practically begging me to help with this. I am worried about their health and the stress this is putting on them. And I am absolutely fucking furious that she is stealing their older years from them, and how she treats them, so I have been trying to intervene.
Now let's jump back to the job situation. There are basically no jobs in her field. We can't ask about the job search, or it's an immediate fight. And she is just too stubborn to take advice. I have had a pretty good career, and I try to offer advice, but I might as well be offering it to a cat who would probably listen better. As far as I know, the search has been pretty half assed.
So I can't let this situation continue. I felt like I could convince her to leave if I made it financially possible. I spent weeks staying up till 4am making myself physically sick. Running numbers and coming up with plans. Basically seeing if I can come up with a way for her to afford rent and bills for 6 months which would give her time to find a new job. And after dozens of hours I figured out a way to make it work with loans, debt restructuring, and me giving her a lot of money.
I approached her and said that she needs to move for her own good and for our parents, and that I came up with a financial plan to make it possible. I presented the plan, and the response? "I hope you didn't tell mom about this plan". My jaw must have hit the fucking floor.
I kept pushing and saying that I was concerned about how the stress in the house is affecting our parents, and the response was, "you're being ridiculous". When I told her that mom was having chest tightness from all the fighting, I was told "she brings it on herself". I have never been so fucking angry when I saw a text. Not even from my whore ex girlfriend that was pregnant from another dude and told me it was mine.
I have continued making myself crazy offering everything I can to make her leave. Loans, thousands of dollars, cosigning leases, movers, furniture. You name it, I have offered. But she won't fucking budge. And I know she needs money, so I told her the only way she's getting a dime is when I see a signed lease or at least a reserved apartment.
Even with all the security I've offered, she is now refusing to leave until she finds a new job. And then I expect her to move the goalpost. It could be years. There is always going to be some excuse not to leave and my parents are expected to deal with this for as long as it suits her.
So I don't know what the fuck to do. I need to get her out immediately but she will not take any steps even when offered financial assistance. I really don't want to go down the road of evictions or courts or cops. I think the stress of that on my parents would be equally bad, and would destroy our family. We recently got in a fight and I told her that if it was me, I would evict her, and she called me an asshole.
I know another option people talk about is for my parents to move. Again, the health issue is one concern, but they also won't be able to find a place with as low of a mortgage payment they have now, and they are very tight with money as it is.
The only other thing I have been able to think of is signing a second lease, paying for a few months, and hiring movers to come get her shit. That scares the hell out of me for my own credit and if I need to move, but I don't know what other options I have. And not sure if it's even legal.
But please, does anyone have any fucking advice for me?!

2023.06.01 03:25 Initial-Ad2104 "God Hates Me!" No, God Loves You!!
"God is love and he's the Father of love the Father who created love."
I've seen posts about some people saying "God Hates Me" or "God doesn't Love Me" and "Why did God let this Happen". God loves you and if you haven't noticed well look around you and see how far your life has gone and tell God "Thank You" for what? You didn't make it thus far on your own and If you think that you made it here ON YOUR OWN you didn't, we all need help from the one person we know who has our backs HIS name is J.E.S.U.S and we ALL have times of trouble, heartbreak, pain, hurting, spiritually, physically, emotionally, and mentally BUT the Lord promises us THAT WE'LL HAVE TO NEVER FIGHT ALONE IN OUR BATTLES THROUGH LIFE. "If God loves me then why did he give me parents who abuses me?" God didn't give you parents that abuses you, God gave you parents of love, happiness, gentleness, kind, and sweet but when your parents were children they were probably beaten, bullied, abused sexually, or mentally and that sort of pain/abuse does not go away and when they were children they probably said to themselves "When I have children I wouldn't do the things that my parents did to me" (Some of them) and some have said "When I have children I would treat my kids the same way my parents treated me" and when God sees this kind of stuff it saddens him it hurts him even more because YOU'RE HIS CHILD and HE WILL NEVER EVER TREAT YOU THE WAY YOU'VE BEEN TREATED. Whenever parents abused their children and they think no one is watching GOD IS WATCHING and GOD IS PROTECTING YOU. Remember whose child you are when you look in the mirror and when that person (you) stares back at you tell him/her that I AM A CHILD OF THE MOST HIGH GOD.

2023.06.01 03:25 Raviolimonster67 How to get 30 backstab kills
I've tried every game mode from GW to shipment 24/7, every possible perk that could make it easier, tactical and lethal but im only at 3 kills, how do i do this challenge? It seems impossible to me. I can't think of anything else to do. I've tried flanking, I've tried being quite hell i even stood behind doors in ground war waiting for people to go through it, just for them to turn around last second. Its the last weapon challenge i need in this event, how do i do it?

2023.06.01 03:25 Dry-Meat-3205 Mini rant
Nothing is more annoying then being sick and getting better to randomly getting worse. Got bronchitis 2nd time was on prednisone and 500/50 advair diskus this time around got better after 3rd day was finally able to breath without needing my inhaler. Today was my last day of prednisone. Then last night bam hella congestion couldn’t sleep because I couldn’t breathe felt like if I was pushing weights to get my lungs to expand. Did my nebulizar in the morning cause I wasn’t as conscious at night but I probably should’ve done it then too. Still didn’t feel as opened as it usually does went to urgent care cause I was dizzy and my fingers were tingling got 2 shots of steroid cause my lungs were raspy and couldn’t get oxygen in as I was supposed to. Was able to do a video call with my pulmonologist which noticed I was far worse then before back on the high dose of prednisone now if I get worse he says I have to go to the hospital cause apparently when you get better you stay better not get worse. Oh how I resent my overly dramatic lungs and wish they wouldn’t make breathing so difficult like breathing is supposed to be natural and effortless not a workout where you can get sore afterwards. Anywho I got to make an appointment for a chest X-ray not looking forward to that. Asthma sucks and being sick with asthma is even worse.

2023.06.01 03:24 cali_born90 If Raquel had come clean to Ariana after the original “one night stand” with Scandoval, how do you think things would have played out differently?
Both Tom’s described the original interaction between Tom and Raquel as a one night stand and then a large break in between. If Raquel had started to feel guilty and come clean to Ariana, what would have happened? Would Ariana have even left Sandoval? Would she excuse their one time slip as long as it wasn’t brought up on the show?!! Scandoval definitely wouldn’t have become the cultural phenomenon that has taken over our lives! Curious about others thoughts on how things would have turned out differently? We all agree that the affair was such a deep betrayal because of how long it lasted. Before you reply Ariana would have still dumped him, consider that it has been said Tom and Ariana had a pact to keep problems off camera and that she always knew about Miami girl. SO if Raquel would have come clean right away would Ariana possibly overlook a one time slip and simply distance herself from Raquel and make her sign an NDA to never mention it again OR would she have dumped him and paraded around with Doute regardless?

2023.06.01 03:24 Firelite67 Would you be open the idea of a singleplayer mode?
After having a look at Shandalar, I can confidently claim that it completely sucked.
BUT it had some pretty damn cool ideas.
So, what if WOTC put in a single-player mode for Arena, but has it sold separately so people can still play the multiplayer for free?
Here's what I'm thinking:
You start the game by picking a starting two-color deck with only cards from the core set. It's not particularly strong, but neither will the decks you face against be, at least in the start. The story of game is that you are a newly sparked-up planeswalker a relatively unknown plane. A villain, either a new one or an existing one, appears, steals the protagonist's favorite necklace, and escapes to another plane.
Coincidentally at that moment, you meet another planeswalker (either an existing or a new one), who teaches you how to use your new powers, and also how to play the game. They tell you that in order to get your necklace back, you'll have to hop through many planes in order to gain cards to put in your deck, so you can become strong enough to defeat the villain.
Essentially, the game will revolve around you hopping from plane to plane, which will function like levels. When you enter a plane, you'll usually help the local residents with a given problem, or an important MTG character with their story. In the Homelands plane, for example, you'll have to take down a reincarnated Baron Sengir while working alongside Feroz's Ban. Each plane with consist of a series of fights against various NPCs. Each battle has a limited pool of cards you can unlock from them, meaning eventually you'll get all that battle's particular cards. Winning fights will also give you XP, which can be spent like Gold to get a pack of cards from a given plane. In addition, the characters you meet will teach about various mechanics and deck types. Chandra, for example, will teach you about burn decks.
The story will be told via both in-battle voice lines, and VN style cutscenes, where you can make a few branching choices. Most planes have two major storylines that end the same way and give the same cards, but thematically are quite different. I don't know the lore too well, but the general idea is that you'll find out about the villain's evil plan, how your necklace is involved, and how to stop them, whilst at the same time engaging with the individual storyline of each plane. It should end with one final best-of-five match against the villain where you can use any card you want.
Something else that would be interesting is if some of the battles had special modifiers depending on the situation. Like your opponent may have some extra creatures on the battlefield to start with, or if someone is helping you then you can start with a planeswalker card. Something really interesting here is the Schemes from the Archenemy format, which I think could be really cool if they're used for the boss fights. If Inscyption is anything to go off, there's nothing more satisfying than winning against an opponent who was cheating. Not to mention, this should help compensate if the AI isn't that smart.
Anyway, that's the basic idea. What's your opinion on a singleplayer mode?

2023.06.01 03:24 Saga265 You lose because you don’t play for jungle
It’s always been obvious (if you have a brain I guess) that jungle is the most impactful role in the game and if you help your jungle you’ll have an easier time winning. I’m just amazed at how little to no knowledge people have of macro: baron is about to spawn and it’s 5v4, WHY DO YOU SUDDENLY RECALL? Why don’t you rush baron when it’s been pinged 10 times already and you prefer to push a lane or not even destroy a turret while we could’ve done a free baron. Why can’t people just follow what the jungler says???? At least when it’s clear that they are competent and or it makes sense but I guess nothing makes sense in people’s empty head when you’re in NA. Like you pushing a turret is just plain braindead when we could be doing baron and then pushing as much as we want.

2023.06.01 03:24 RockBandDood For Sekiro Players Who Haven't Played Wo Long Yet - Heres Some Suggestions For You To Make It More "Like" Sekiro
So I tried Wo Long on release and was disappointed with it. There are NPCs who follow you around each mission, which, I didnt realize until recently, you can dismiss using an item called the Willow Branch in your inventory. This is what made me decide to start a new playthrough. You can use this at the very start of any level to just take the area on by yourself, the NPCs are just major major overkill.
Second piece of advice - Dont invest in real Damage spells. This makes many fights, particularly boss fights, moot. I killed the first 5 bosses or so in 1-2 tries and that made me quit. You can invest your levels into a particular Element. I recommend primarily going with Earth. With Earth, you gain equipment load so you can wear heavy armor, without being slowed, like the Souls games in general.
Is this creating Artificial Difficulty? Absolutely. But its also letting your Sekiro chops shine through instead of spamming magic and having assists coming from AI companions.
I had a boss that took me over an hour to beat last night and I was like "Thank god, there is difficulty here"; you just need to control yourself and not invest in the more or less other "easier" mechanics, like absurdly strong Spells and Companions
Earth also has few spells that are damage spells, but they come with a catch for the most part. The Earth Spell I use the most is the Armor spell it. I also use the floor sludge spell to slow enemies down that are walking through it. There is also a poison spell that takes a few hits to actually poison the target, but its not damaging posture/health instantly like lightning and other spells.
If you want a more melee focused/Sekiro type experience, I think this is the best way to go about it. You can use Earth to get yourself a strong set of Armor that wont slow you down, the Willow Branch to get rid of Coop NPCs and just take the game on by yourself, and once you get to like 30-35 Earth Level, youll be wearing extremely heavy armor and not slowed at all.
I am not finished with this playthrough, but its been much more enjoyable having to 1 on 1 my opponents Sekiro style and taking on small groups instead of relying on NPCs and High Damage spells to do 1/2 the work for me.
Just a heads up for anyone interested in trying it, or anyone that got turned off by how easy it was with their first playthrough like I did.
Good luck if you decide to jump in

2023.06.01 03:23 disfreakinguy TIFU: I gave a child player a tragic back story that is accurate
I recently moved to a new state and started a new group with my daughter and her school friends. Only one player is currently relevant, she is 12.
She wanted an edgy, skulky sneak thief. I decided to make her the classic rogue: dead mom, missing dad, tough childhood. She's with the party to leave her old life and start a new one.
Here's the rub: I found out later that her mother died last year. For most of the last 8 years her dad has been gone from her life, only coming back into the picture 2 years ago. She lived a little bit of a rough life during that time.
I've sat with her and she actually loves her character, it's a way to sort of look at things from the outside, which she likes. We've been playing 6 months and we're invested.
But now comes the tricky part: she wants to go home. I'm absolutely not sure how to proceed here. I'm worried about how to approach this. Thoughts?

2023.06.01 03:23 Zealousidea__chic422 Question about car accident and arbitration with other company
A few months ago, I was driving and a trash truck pulled out from a parking lot in front of me and I hit it. The truck pulled out from the left side of the road and was making a left turn onto the lane I was in. I was cresting a hill and the sun was ccoming up and blinded me just as the truck pulled out in front of me, so I never even saw it until I felt the impact of the crash and my airbag deployed. I was in my lane and I was going about 20 mph.
The police came and said the trash truck driver was at fault in their report. The trash company has some no name insurance that I had a hard time finding contact information for, and I was not able to get through to them so I called my insurance to report the accident and to get things moving because I needed a car. Although there wasn't much damage, they totaled my car since the airbag deployed.
My insurance could not get the other company to respond, so they went through arbitration and I just got a letter from them telling me that, incredibly, we lost the arbitration! So I am out $1000 deductible and my the difference in cost betweeen what I paid for a newer car vs. what they gave me for totalling it and the increased insurance I am now paying. Just wondering, for anyone with expereince with this, how could I lose an arbitration case when the other driver was very clearly at fault? Do I have any recourse? Also, when I started looking for new insurance (since my insurance raised my rates about $700 per year) I was told that it looks like I am fault in the CLUE system so I can't get competitive rates. Any help/advice would be appreciated.

2023.06.01 03:23 Enrichedminds17 We Are Human Too Short Film
Hello everyone! I'm Anthony Headen. Writer, Director and Producer of MULTIPLE AWARD WINNING SHORT FILM, "WE ARE HUMAN TOO. BASED ON TRUE EVENTS, IN WHICH UNARMED, NON-VIOLENT, BLACK CITIZENS ARE KILLED BY POLICE ON CAMERA, AND DESPITE CLEAR EVIDENCE OF WRONG DOING, THEIR ACTIONS ARE JUSTIFIED. THE FILM OFFERS A POINT OF VIEW FROM THE OTHER SIDE, BY DEPICTING THE VICTIMS AND THE OFFICERS INVOLVED IN THE SHOOTINGS AS THE OPPOSITE RACE.
The trailer can be viewed here https://youtube.com/shorts/h1O8bFV8Dss?feature=share
The short film We Are Human Too can be viewed here https://youtu.be/weZ9VmaBDT0
Since winning multiple awards, https://m.imdb.com/name/nm2559839/awards/?ref_=nm_awd
we've decided that we can raise more awareness by making a feature length film and distributing the project ourselves.
That means we have to pay for film permits, production equipment, legal fees, cast, crew, marketing and theater rentals ourselves, so we're asking for your help. Please donate and help us produce and bring this film to theaters.
As you know, filmmaking isn't cheap. I don't come from money either. It took my entire 4 years worth of savings to make this short film, but it had to be made, as the subject matter needed to be addressed in a softened manner to offer a different perspective.
We want the feature length version of the film to raise as much awareness as globally possible, so changes can be made to prevent these ongoing tragedies from reoccurring.
HERE'S MY DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT ABOUT WHY I MADE THIS FILM....
Observing numerous debates, media personalities, and politicians' callous responses to these tragedies, I realized what a bit of their disconnect was. THEY IDENTIFIED WITH THE POLICE INVOLVED AND NOT THE VICTIM!
This can be innocent enough. I'm careful not to attribute racism to every negative scenario that involves opposite races. Sometimes it's a misunderstanding and someone needs to be offered a different perspective to comprehend the other's position in certain matters.
I have friends and loved ones of all ethnicities, so I'm acutely aware of how culture differences can lead to misunderstandings.
You ask yourself, "How can someone watch a video of a person with their empty hands in the air, be gunned down, and say they deserved it?"
I began to brainstorm and arrived at an answer. "If the officer looks like me, a non-violent, law abiding citizen, then surely there had to be a justifiable reason he shot that person."
So with that perspective, I wondered what that type of mindset would think if the same exact scenario played out, but the victim looks like them instead of the officer involved.
I found a lot of people finally understood the African American perspective, after they watched "We Are Human Too".
I felt it was the best way for us to understand each other, come together as HUMANS and make our everyday experiences as positive as we can for one another.
Yet, the problem still persists. Officers make fatal mistakes with, often, zero accountability. As if the victim doesn't matter, or isn't human.
Please help us bring this film to as many eyes as possible, so we can stop the madness and bring humanity to the forefront.
Thank you for considering.

2023.06.01 03:23 bins88_ Anyone else have trouble with the Opsix?
I purchased the Opsix a few months back, a bit of a lateral move from my other poly the Minilogue but I really needed full sized keys and the demo intrigued me. Fast forward to now, I can’t seem to make anything worth a damn from it. Any time I tinker with some of the template presets, I ultimately end up with harsh, tinny leads (after 30 minutes of tinkering with operators). It ironically made me appreciate the Minilogue a lot more, how effortlessly I can land into something I like and edit the parameters on the fly. I don’t think it helps that Korg isn’t offering any sound libraries for free yet, wish some questionable stock presets. The stuff I really gravitate towards on the machine are the old EP/WurlitzeOrgan sounds and the sequencer can be pretty fun. Just feel like I am barely using half of its capabilities and was wondering if anyone had tips/similar experiences.

2023.06.01 03:23 my_travelz Sharing local outlook calendars
We have some users who are trying to share there their own calendars and they keep breaking even when they give permission for someone else to make an entry, so I have a ticket where I suggested to the user that they make a out of office calendar in the cloud which would be done by us in IT, but they are claiming that it’s too complicated, even though we provide them instruction on how to do this. Is this not a good suggestion or is there another method? It’s a office 365 shop with the O365 apps - Government office

2023.06.01 03:23 SweetnCold Getting ahead…
I’ll try to make this post as less dramatic as possible. The point is, I’m feeling a little bit behind, especially at high school. Idk if I’m just burnt out, or lazy, but high school came at a point where I’m being super pessimistic about myself, and my future. An example is when I study as hard as I can for a test, and still perform poorly, and watch everyone absolutely ace it effortlessly. Even without studying much. Ik, comparing yourself to others is an extremely unhealthy habit, but it’s soooo hard to care about it anymore. And especially when most of my close friends are super hard-working, and smart, it made me question whether I should keep trying anymore. Ik some of y’all will say that I should maximize my chances of succeeding, but it’s not as easy as it seems from my experience. I just wish one day I’d get a glow-up, and maybe even help the people who had my struggles. Atp, all I keep wishing for is not making it to my 20s, which is also something I’m aware is horribly wrong, and I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy. Also another life-wrecking problem I have is social anxiety. I cannot for the love of god talk to someone (especially my teachers) without shivering, or saying things I shouldn’t say, and I read somewhere from a math teacher that having confidence, and self-esteem is the only way you’ll ever be good at school from their experience, but it’s not a problem I think I’ll ever solve. But for now, I want someone who at least had the same experience as me to tell me if/how they fixed it. And about my current health? Bad. I’m severely underweight too. And lately, I’ve been getting back to some of my unhealthy habits. And also one of the worst things is my close friends trying to help me, but end up not doing anything. Makes me feel like a true piece of shit, and that all I’m doing is basically holding them back, and wasting their time. And also, socially sometimes I tend to hurt a lot of people without ever meaning it. This is giving me a habit of never engaging in a social convo. Like, ever. Fearing I might unintentionally cross someone’s line. And lately, I’ve been feeling like I’m really not human. Long story, short. I don’t feel like I belong here, at all. Is it mental illness, or is it true, or just delusion. I don’t wanna make this post longer, I already know I might regret posting it, but hopefully I don’t. Thank you, for reading 💛
TL;DR: I’m just feeling super behind, to the point where I feel like I’m never gonna go anywhere in life.

2023.06.01 03:23 jkozmetsky Is it wrong to not want a sky blue phone because it feels too feminine for me?
To start, I identify as a woman. I grew up a bit of a tomboy though, and I prefer some things I own to be in darker colors. I recently just got a new phone, the phone was part of a promotion and my brother gave it to me. He asked which color I wanted, and I said the navy blue one. He said there wasn’t a navy blue one, there was a black one and I said yes, the darkest color option is what I’d like. The phone was shipped in the wrong color (a sky blue) because he accidentally told them navy blue and they assumed that meant the blue one, which was a sky blue. I went to exchange it, because my brother told me the AT&T person said I had 14 days to do so, but my brother had already thrown away the packaging I needed to make the exchange and only an authorized person (my brother) could do the exchange and he didn’t want to come with me to the store.
I was a little frustrated, but I didn’t make a big deal about it and accepted what I got because I just got a free new phone (🎉), otherwise this story might’ve ended up on AITA
. I just want to know if my frustration is misguided/wrong in the fact that I really don’t like how my new phone looks because the color feels too feminine for me? Is thinking a color is masculine or feminine pointless or wrong?
There’s nothing wrong with being feminine. In fact, the longer I’m looking at this phone typing this out, the more this color is growing on me. I just want to be able to decide when and how I’m being feminine.

2023.06.01 03:23 D_2d Remove string characters from labels
New to locals and for loops but I basically want to remove string characters from labels in a loop, so that I can make multiple graphs. My variables look like this:
"var1 Start business"
Then we have var2
"var2 Start studying"
How would I remove var1 and var2 from the labels, so that I could just have "Start business" and "Start studying"
I have multiple variables too. Any help will be appreciated!

2023.06.01 03:22 mollz735 Struggling to make friends at workplace
So I (25f) tend to make friends with the introverts and bring people into my curated circle…but I joined a new workplace and I am clearly not breaking into to already established social rings. I work at a school and I get along fabulously with the students, especially the new students and foreign exchange students because I love welcoming in new people like a typically bubbly enfp.
But I just feel like such a weirdo because essentially do all my socializing with 13 year olds and I hardly converse with any of the school staff and especially not any of the teachers who are kinda cliquey.
Now school is out and I have a new summer job at a restaurant and I’m once again worried I will just remain on the sidelines. I am an extrovert but I tend not to get along w other extroverts…
How do you break into social groups?
