"If you're not careful and you noclip out of reality in the wrong areas, you'll end up in the Backrooms, where it's nothing but the stink of old moist carpet, the madness of mono-yellow, the endless background noise of fluorescent lights at maximum hum-buzz, and approximately six hundred million square miles of randomly segmented empty rooms to be trapped in. God save you if you hear something wandering around nearby, because it sure as hell has heard you" THIS IS A FICTIONAL CONCEPT

2023.05.28 03:58 euphoria_23 My Anorexia Story podcast episode ❤️

Hey guys!!!! Just wanted to share my story with y’all. So the eating disorder I struggled with was Anorexia (I NEVER ever binged or vomited bc like ewwww 🤢 but omg you’re still totally valid if you had something else like binge eating disorder or even 😳 atypical anorexia!!!)
Growing up my family wasn’t rich or poor and I would say we were comfortable! Like we only had two houses: a penthouse in NYC and a summer vacay house in St. Bart’s. My parents are also pretty normal and neither abusive or perfectly supportive. Like…. when I told them I wanted a Range Rover for my 16th bday, they only got me a Jeep (whatever 🥱 I’m not bitter or anything but trauma like this DEFINITELY contributed to my anorexia)
I would say my eating disorder started in 9th grade when, at the private school I went to, I broke my ankle and couldn’t ride my favorite horse anymore. I obviously gained a little weight and broke into TEARS when the prom dress that Donatella Versace herself made me didn’t fit anymore.
Yeah long story short blah blah overexercise and restriction. I won’t mention numbers bc they’re sooooo useless and triggering 🙄 (oh also I never ate more than 2 calories a day and ran at least 50 miles every morning)! I even had to get hospitalized 17 times because I was SUCH A LOW WEIGHT and even got a medal at my local hospital for being the best anorexic. But of course even if you were never hospitalized you’re still totally valid!!!! Body shape and weight don’t define how sick you are 🥺 butttttt in case you’re curious, here’s a nude photo of me at my lowest weight.
And then I found JESUS and he SAVED ME 🙏🏻 from anorexia! I’m not trying to tell others what to do or say there’s only one way to recover (but if you don’t believe in our true savior then you’ll never recover and also burn in the fires of hell for eternity btw)
So yeah that’s my story!!!! I hope I was able to help and inspire some of you. Remember that weight gain is OKAY and different for everyone, which is why I’m still underweight. Bye guys and here’s a 10% off code for protein bars ❤️❤️❤️❤️

2023.05.28 03:58 HelloIAmMarryMarry IWF Heavy Metal Title Qualifier( Seth Rollins in AEW)

When booking Seth Rollins in AEW, there are plenty of dream matches we could set up, but only one match already has the in-built storyline with a main event spot open. See, starting in June, AEW will reportedly be launching a new show AEW Collision to be headed by someone not named Kenny Omega or MJF, with the current talk indicating that AEW will be initiating a "soft" brand split. With this new opportunity, here is how I would book Seth Rollins in AEW. Enjoy!
So we start with AEW Double or Nothing 2023 to set up the building blocks. We start the Main Event is an anarchy in the arena match. Blackpool Combat Club(BCC from now on) vs. The Elite with Konosuke Takashta. A bunch of silly mayhem, Takashta jumps off a bunch of ridiculous things, The Elite fire, I don't know, Byan Danielson out of a fucking trebuchet, Jon Moxley goes full Bagby from Trainspotting throwing pint glasses of piss over his shoulder from the press box. The end of the match features Moxley setting up for his double under-hook DDT(what is he calling it nowadays? Is it still Dirty Deeds?) when over the loudspeaker, "Sierra Hotel India Echo Lima Delta SHIELD." Moxley turns to look at the ramp looking as if he had just seen a ghost. This distracts Moxley long enough for Omega to recover. Omega plants Moxley with the one-winged angel 1-2-3. The Elite win the match. Every week until the return of Forbidden Door, two electric boogaloo, we are shown Moxley walking around backstage asking everyone if they know who played that music at Double or Nothing. No one seems to know. Eventually, he asks Tony Khan, and even he says something like, "Mox, I have no idea. We've been working on trying to figure out what happened. I promise you we will find whoever did it."
At AEW Forbidden Door, BCC and The Elite have their rematch, and again Moxley looks to be in a position to put the Elite away when he hears over the loudspeaker, "Sierra Hotel India Echo Lima Delta SHIELD." Moxley looks around again but sees nothing and turns to finish the job. He hits Omega with his finisher, but before Moxley can cover, he is hit from behind with a steel chair, making the ref call a DQ win for the Elite. The man is Tyler Black. Tyler Black looks down at the broken body of Moxley and leaves the ring.
The next stretch of booking is building up to two shows. All In at Wembley Stadium oi oi and All Out two weeks later, presumably followed by All Shake-it-all-about two weeks after that. The next night on Dynamite, Tyler Black walks to the ring, grabs a mic, and keeps acting as if he's about to say something but doesn't. He just puts the mic down and walks away. This happens again the following week, but before he can leave, Moxley's theme hits, and he runs right up to Black and gets in his face. Before anything can happen, they both are interrupted by Don Callis. Don Callis stands in the middle of the two and talks about how "this company was founded on a bet. That's why they called it All In. Now here, Tony Khan thinks that there's money to be made here. We're playing our first stadium boys, so Khan's rolling the dice, but it's a big gamble, and this is a volatile situation, so here's the deal you get your promo time separately," he gestures to Moxley. "You can talk next week," he gestures to Black, "you can talk the following., but that's it, there'll be no violence. Not until All In, if there is any physicality before then the match is off, and each of you will eat a 250,000 dollar fine to pay back the gate that you're throwing away."
This is all about delaying the gratification, as Black hasn't said a word since debuting not one word into the microphone. Next week Moxley talks about his past and how he's never really forgiven Black for what he did. One of the reasons he left WWE, he states, was that he couldn't "play nice" with Black like management wanted him to, and just when he thought he could move on, that he had moved on, he came to AEW to spite him. The following week Black comes out TO NO MUSIC. This is important. We hear him speak for the first time. He says that he's on a free agent contract and can be employed by any company if they pay royalties to WWE. He was hearing about the hype of AEW, MJF, Chris Jericho, and Omega and wanted to see what it was all about. But when he got here, he saw his former partner sharing the same ring as someone as accomplished as Kenny Omega. And that made him sick. How can this great company have a pile and, I quote, "dog shit" be main eventing their most significant Pay Per View of the year across Kenny Omega. "Jon, or should I call you Dean? You should have gone back to CZW, as your only relevancy is being able to bleed more than Ric Flair. At All In, I'm going to murder you."
Moxley and Black come face to face, but Don Callis comes out to plead the two to not come to blows. The two stand down, but on the way out of the ring, Black hits a curb stomp on Don Callis for a little bit of heat before the match.
The two meet at All In in an Intercontinental Champions Challenge match which is based on the Champions League's rules because football because England oi oi. The pair have two sixty-minute Ironman matches—one at All In and one at All Out then whoever has the most points by the end of the second match wins the feud. So, let's book these matches.
Moxley's music hits, and he walks to the ring as the hometown hero for AEW. This is the house that Jon Moxley built, and the fans are well aware of who the outsider is. Moxley's music fades away, and the crowd waits with bated breath for Tyler Black. After a short pause, we finally hear, "BURN IT DOWN!" as Seth Rollins, aka Tyler Black, makes his way to the ring.
The match starts, and both men start off the match by locking up with some good old chain grappling. Going back and forth, Black can eventually take control by slamming Moxley's hand into the turnbuckle pad. Moxley then fights back, trying to set up for a quick Dirty Deeds, to which Black counters with a clothesline hurling Moxley out of the ring. Black acts like he's going to do a suicide dive to the outside of the ring but promptly sits down to take a little bit of a breather and to swerve against some expectations like the cheeky heel he is. Moxley gets back into the ring, and the two continue to brawl. After a bit, it's Black's turn to be clotheslined out of the ring. Moxley does his best Black impression and also sits down and proceeds to mock Black. Black is too quick, though, and rushes the ring. Moxley tries to get up in time but runs right into a curb stomp 1-2-3. Black is up 1-0. Black goes for another pin immediately after but only gets a two-count.
The two continue to go at it, and about thirty minutes have passed by this point when Moxley his a quick Dirty Deeds out of nowhere 1-2-3. The score is tied up at 1-1. Later in the match, Moxley nails a devastating Brainbuster to Black on the apron. Moxley then proceeds to hit another Dirty Deeds in the ring to secure a point lead. Moxley is now up 1-2. The fight spills out of the ring for the third time now with only 5 minutes left on the clock; Moxley prepares the announce table. Moxley looking to make a statement and put Black through the announce table.
The ref starts to count. Black counters into a Pedigree and stumbles back into the ring. The ref continues to count 7-8-9-10. The score is tied 2-2. The ref restarts his count as Moxley begins to stir. The ref counts eight as Moxley is stumbling to get into the ring. The ref counts nine as Moxley is stumbling up the ropes. Just before Moxley can get into the ring, Black dropkicks him off the apron, and the ref counts ten. Black is up 3-2. Moxley gets back into the ring after shaking off his stupor. The clock has 60 seconds. Moxley is overwhelming Black and pummeling him in the ring. Ten seconds, Mox hits another Dirty Deeds and goes for the cover, but he's too slow. The clock runs out before he can make the pin. Black is in the lead after their first match.
Next, Dynamite Black comes, picks up a mic, smiles, sets down the mic, and walks to the back. Moxley would come out next week and address that Black got lucky he got saved by the bell and promises at All Out he will finish this story once and for all and finally get revenge for the Shield.
Their All Out match starts with Moxley making his way to the ring; however, Black attacks Moxley during his entrance. Moxley tries to fight back, but the surprise attack is too much. Black hits Moxley with a chair and then a curb stomp onto the chair before throwing him into the ring, and the match officially starts. Black goes for the pin 1-2-3. Black leads 4-2. black picks Moxley up and tries to deliver a Pedigree, only for Moxley to counter and fight back. Moxley hits Black with a clothesline, an elbow, and another clothesline. He hits Black with a suplex and another suplex. Black is disoriented, allowing Moxley to hit a Dirty Deeds 1-2-3. Black is up 4-3.
The two continue to fight as the clock ticks down—forty-five minutes on the clock. Moxley attempts to hit an avalanche slam off the top rope but Black counters and knocks Moxley to the ground. Black then hits the Phenoix splash 1-2-3. Black is up 5-3. The clock is at thirty minutes. Moxley quickly recovered from the maneuver and rolled Black up in a small cradle right after the three counts to bring the score 5-4. The two continue to fight until Moxley is knocked back into the ref. Black looks at the situation and looks all around at the crowd before going outside and grabbing a steel chair. Black starts hitting the chair against the canvas yelling at Moxley to get up. Moxley gets up but counters Black's attack into a Dirty Deeds on the chair. Moxley gets rid of the chair and wakes the ref up 1-2-3. The score is tied 5-5. The pair continue to fight as the clock ticks thirty seconds. Black is back on the top rope, looking to give another Pheniox splash. With the last bit of his energy, Moxley lashes out, scrambles to the top rope, and delivers from the top rope a Dirty Deeds 1-2-3. The bell rings as the time hits zero. The final score is 6-5. Moxley wins.
From here, you can have Seth Rollins, aka Tyler Black Fuck off back to WWE or keep him around in AEW. The prompt "Seth Rollins in AEW" was so vague that I kept it to one feud, but you can easily take this as a jumping-off point and then have him enter into a storyline with other big names such as MJF or Omega or maybe even have a match with Darby Allen. This also sets up Moxley and the BCC to be top stars on the new show AEW Collision. Where ever you choose to go from here, This is how I would book Seth Rollins, aka Tyler Black, in AEW.

Saw Greenbrier Help!
Some back story to start:
I bought this house over a year ago and It’s had an abandoned yard and there are saw greenbriers (Smilax bona-nox)all over the yard.
What I have done so far to try to get rid of them: I have tried using round up 41% glyphosate concentrate and it does some damage to the top part but never fully kills it. I have dug up the root systems as best as I can they are so in there about (1 or 2 ft in the ground ) I’m never sure if I get all of it because of how big the yard is and how deep they go I also been cutting the tops off twice a day to try not to have them grow any leaves to maybe kill them that way no luck.
These things grow so fast it’s not even funny one moment there not there and they will be in a few hours.
Any help and input is appreciated I really would like to get my yard without these vines and there big thorns.
Attached are some pictures of some of the vines there are ones that are bigger and thicker.

What if 13 Venémiaire was a successful Revolt?

Portrait of King Maurice I by Jacques-Louis David

Difference: In this alternate timeline, Joachim Murat remains loyal to the orders of Paul Barras and ignored Napoleon Bonaparte's commands. For the sake of an interesting story/timeline, he secretly had royalist sympathies deep down due to how much bloodshed the initial revolution had caused for the people of France.
Without cannons, the republican forces are at a larger disadvantage, even with Napoleon Bonaparte in their group. The royalists still outnumber the republicans 6 to 1, which without the cannons being a threat makes this an easy win for the royalists rebellion. Murat, seeing the writing on the wall, secretly retreats, leaving Napoleon to die without either cannons or a counter attack to save his life. While some republicans make Napoleon a martyr for his bravery, he is almost forgotten entirely in history due to such an early death.
Within a few more weeks with support from Austria and the British, the royalist rebellion is able to orchestrate a compromise peace deal. In exchange for the destruction of the Committee of Public Safety, France would bring back the monarchy. However instead of the restoration of the Bourbon Dynasty, a vote within the rebellion group so the creation of the House of Dresden with Maurice d'Elbee to become the new king of France. The reason was that the royalists in this timeline did feel that a constitutional monarchy similar to parliament in the United Kingdom would be a safer system than continuing the path of the Republic. However they also feared a continued abuse of power by the House of Bourbon. The British agreed as Maurice made it clear he was more open to peacefully working with the British and the Prussians were happy that a German born could become king. Austria was hesitant but agreed as it was clear Maurice's intentions were to restore France internally, not to recover lost territory.
On January 28th, 1796, the Committee of Public Safety was officially dismantled with all members either becoming imprisoned, exiled, or executed depending on their rank. Two days later, the new new parliament system was announced. While mostly noble family members were part of the system, a few wealthy merchant families were able to join in as well, allowing for a small amount of representation of urban middle class families.
On March 6th, 1796, Maurice d'Elbee was officially crowned King of France. For the rest of his reign, Maurice I would focus mainly on the restoration of France, pushing parliament to implement tax and agriculture reforms while also reminding the nobility of what happened the last time the nobility gave up on fulfilling their duty as enlightened people to protect the poor.
By May 23rd, 1796, King George III would allow Princess Augusta Sophia to marry King Maurice I and ensure personally that the monarch in reformed France was solidified. This resulted in 2 sons (Maurice II and Romuald I) and a daughter, Olivia.

So with all this information/context about the scenario above, how much impact does this have on Europe. I'm all ears for ideas, whether it be about the monarchy, the relationship between the UK and France, or just the lack of Napoleon. Also I apologize that the AI Art created an orange suit for the king. This was the best portrait I could get that looked like Maurice after a few attempts to even get a normal face.

2023.05.28 03:41 bakedasbread_wife [UPDATE] Please share success stories on vaginally delivering your large baby

Original post: https://www.reddit.com/NewParents/comments/12fddrc/please_share_success_stories_on_vaginally/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=android_app&utm_name=androidcss&utm_term=1&utm_content=share_button
My LO is 1 month today! I remembered that I never posted an update on what happened on this subreddit. Here is my birth story! (Copy and pasted from the private subreddit I posted it in) This is a LONG post - I felt that I wanted to include as much as possible. TL;DR at the bottom for those who'd rather skip the novel
TW: I talk about blood
It all started Wednesday 4/26. I was 40+3 and my Dr was going to schedule an induction for Monday 5/1 if I didn't go into labor over the weekend. I was very passionate about letting my body decide when it was time to go into labor, so I was very anxious about a possible induction. I was 2cm dilated, 50% effaced, and baby was -3 station. I was like this from my 38w appointment. It's worth mentioning that I was measuring ahead and my OB expected a big baby.
My fiancé and I did the deed around 5:45pm on Wednesday, in hopes of getting things started, and boy did it work. I went to the bathroom immediately after we were done, and I had bloody discharge for the first time in my entire pregnancy. I was so excited but also trying not to get my hopes up.
We went downstairs and almost immediately I started complaining about achey hips. It seemed to come and go, and wasn't very intense. I couldn't figure out if it was gas, or just hip pain, or something else. It got more and more noticeable very quickly. By 6:45pm I was using a contractions app just for shiggles. I had no idea what contractions were supposed to feel like, but I wasn't getting any tightening in my belly (that I ever noticed anyways). I very quickly started to yell each time I felt this hip pain. It was a squeezing sensation and I couldn't get into any position at all to get comfortable. The app told me to "get ready to go to the hospital soon" after only recording 5 contractions. I was shocked. It kept saying the same thing for a few hours. I was eventually upstairs, in bed, bawling, yelling, and shaking. I was still getting bloody discharge with every pee and I started to worry that it was too much.
At 10:45pm, I finally said let's go to the hospital. My contractions (that I still didn't know were actually contractions) were averaging 3-4 mins apart and 30-40s long. We grabbed our hospital bag and left the house.
The hospital is a 10 min drive, and I had 2 contractions in the car. Once we got to L&D, they checked us into triage to take a look. It's a little after 11pm at this point. A Dr checked my cervix and I was 5cm and 80%. Holy shit was I shocked to hear that. She then told me my water was broken. When the hell did that happen?! I had NO idea, and we all assume that it happened because of the sex. So the guesstimated time stamp for water breaking was 6:00pm. They told us we were being checked into a room. I was still shocked because I was convinced that we'd get there and they'd send us home. But now this was real!!
The problem now was that my contractions died down a LOT. I knew that wasn't good, so we started walking, doing deep squats, and I did a little nipple stimulating. Nothing. I think from the time we checked in, to about 7am, I had less than 10 contractions. I slept on and off from 2 to 5, and woke up with 2 strong contractions in that window.
The night shift Dr came in before she left to do another cervical check, and I was only at 6cm. Day shift Drs and nurses got in at 7, and the Drs began talking about my biggest fear. Pitocin. Now it's worth mentioning that I was dead set on an unmedicated birth. After some talking to, I agreed to pitocin. I got really emotional because I was hooked up to all this stuff, and I really wanted freedom of movement for labor. I was having a really hard time emotionally with the way things were going so far. But I tried to stay positive and think about meeting my baby soon. They started me on 2 with the pitocin and bumped me up by 2 every 30 mins or so. My contractions didn't come back/intensify until I was at 8. They really started to get intense and regular at 12. Baby's heartrate did pretty good with the contractions, but one of the Drs seemed unsure and wanted to place a contraction measuring thing inside my uterus to measure the strength of my contractions. After a while with that in, he decided they were good and strong.
The timeline of my cervical checks is kind of foggy, but I know I went from 5cm to 8cm over the course of 12 hours. The Drs were concerned because of how slowly I was dilating. I don't think it would have been as much of an issue if my water hadn't been broken. They didn't want to let me go over 24hrs with it broken.
They started talking about my next biggest fear. An epidural. I was absolutely against it and wanted to feel everything. But here I was, not progressing, and in shit-tons of pain. I had received advice, from a mama in our community here, to relax into the contractions, and I remembered that and tried SO HARD to do that each time but damn my body wouldn't let me. I was practically convulsing with each contraction and yelling in pain. The Drs encouraged me to get the epidural in hopes of my body relaxing and therefore dilating more. I finally agreed to it, because I started to realize that if I didn't get it, and I still didn't progress, that I'd need it anyways for a cesarean. But if I did get it, it may be my only chance at vaginally birthing my daughter.
The anesthesiologist was awesome and made me feel very safe and comfortable. It was quick and easy (minus me freaking out over the weird electrical tingles and sensations in my leg, which he said was normal). I started to feel relief after about 15 minutes, and I hate to admit how glad I was. My pushy Dr came in, not even 30 mins after the epidural, and said we should do a cesarean now because I wasn't progressing. I got kind of mad and felt like it was unfair. I had JUST gotten the epidural. I told her no and that I wanted to wait to let my body try for a while longer. (At this point, it was only about 11:45am, and I still had about 6 hours until my 24hr mark). She was pissy with me but agreed to let me try longer. Very shortly after that, my nurse came in with another nurse to help move me around in different positions to try to help baby move down.
After trying for a few more hours, I got a cervical check, and I was holding my breath in anticipation. But I had ZERO change. I was devastated.
The time came for the cesarean talk again. I had to agree at this point, because baby girl clearly wasn't going anywhere and I didn't want to risk infection for either of us. They did all their prep, wheeled me down, and here I was in a bright cold room with a lot of people. A different anesthesiologist was taking care of me now and he was also awesome like the previous one! My epidural wasn't working anymore so he gave me a spinal. That worked, so my fiancé was escorted in and they started the process. I just want to say how much I hated the cesarean. I hated the way it felt. The tugging, the pressure, the burning. It was so intense and nauseating.
9:48pm on April 27th, we finally heard our baby girl cry, and we cried. My Dr yelled my name (in a playful/shocked way) and they all talked about how big she was. 9lbs 8oz, 21 inches long! Holy crap lol I was not expecting that! I know I was measuring big, but I was convinced that the measurements were just bigger than she was actually going to be. Turns out those measurements were SMALLER than how big she was lol they cleaned her up, handed her to my fiancé, and we got to meet our baby girl. I was absolutely devastated that I was not able to do the golden hour of skin to skin. I only got to look at her for about 5 minutes before they escorted her and my fiancé to the nursery.
After stitching me back up and wheeling me to recovery, I finally got to hold my baby. She fed and it was an amazing experience. But this time was also the beginning of a lot of pain for me. They had to push on my belly to get my uterus to contract down but wow I hated that. SO painful. They did it every 15 mins for 2 hours. I was able to go back to my room after that, where even more of a nightmare began. I was losing a lot of blood and my uterus wasn't going down like they wanted. 2 Drs came in and said they needed to check inside my vagina for clots. That was pretty painful. They found a lot. Then they found more. And more. They needed to go into my uterus through my vagina to get more. They said this is why my uterus wasn't going down, because I was clotting really bad. They told me it was going to hurt really badly and asked if I wanted anything for the pain before they did it. I said no, and they went ahead with it. Can I just say how traumatized I am from that experience. Wow. I screamed louder than I ever thought possible, and was in the worst amount of pain in my life. I think I traumatized the resident Dr who did the procedure because of the way I was screaming. She had to do it AGAIN too. They found a lot of clots and pieces of placenta. The 2nd time, when they were done, I felt it all spill out of me and it felt like 2 gallons of warm guts. It was like a horror movie. I never want to experience that ever again.
That was pretty much the end of it all besides me staying another day or so in the hospital. I want to say how important I feel it is that I let my expectations go at a certain point. I had the perfect birth in my head, and I did not get to experience that perfect birth. I don't know what it feels like to push my baby out, I didn't get to have my golden hour, I didn't get to have an unmedicated birth. But my baby is here and healthy, and so am I. That's all that truly matters in the end.
Thank you all for being such a great support system on this journey. And thank you for reading, if you did. It was quite therapeutic to type this up.
What a wild ride this was. Pregnancy I would do all over again, but I'm not so sure anymore after my birth experience. My baby girl may be my only child after going through this.
TL;DR: I was in 27 hours of active labor with my water broken, which ended with a cesarean because my 9# 8oz baby girl wasn't moving down (she never went lower than -2 station).

2023.05.28 03:22 Minute-Weight-5555 Character Sheet: Ashter Lake

I've recently been posting art here! So, here's an official sheet of my precious character's story and ability!
Ashter Lake is a third year like many others of the cast and is a powerful Elite Tier in the current story, reaching a high 4.9 with the strange Icy Claws ability.
He was originally from a school called "Beachfield Elementary/Middle" where he grew up in a rather lovely environment. The school didn't despise lower ranks and allowed everyone to grow up as equals. The staff however were PACKED with Elite Tiers, so whenever a fight breaks out, someone can come along and defend the attacked students.
Currently standing in the top 100 in the Turf Wars, the High School houses some powerful Elite Tiers and around one High Tier standing as its King.
Ashter faced no difficulties and met a lot of friends until his father was taken away, he started to be cold and distant which others tried to comfort, and the boy discovered his ability as he cut a student. This made him distant, he honed his skills in order to find whoever had taken his father, as his mother was a Low Tier and was spared in the attack.
With his skills, he managed to catch the eyes of Wellston and was given a nice four-year scholarship with paid dorms and education to work there, which was around his first month into the school so people like John weren't exactly introduced to him yet.
However, the strife and violence in the school frightened him. Ashter never trained his ability against others and he only found ways to use it in different ways, discovering the shield of ice he can create as will be explained later.
He would attempt to make friends with John, but he always pushed him away. He however made friends with the others that soon made him a target for others which revealed Ashter's ability to the public.
In the future, as in when he fights John, Ashter would join Blyke in various spars and soon become a High Tier thanks to a specific event during their duo vigilante runs.
The rest is still unknown.
Elite Tier (4.9)
Icy Claws
The user's nails grow longer and have a cold touch to them, allowing harsh cutting action that leaves a cold icy crystal behind that causes frostbites.
Ice Slash: The user cuts, leaving icy crystals.
Icicle Shield: While not natural, the user can stab the ground, causing a small shield around half the size of the user to be shielded with ice. This ice however being so unnatural only allows a defense of a Mid Tier in fortification. So around a 2-3 in defensive capabilities.
Stats: Power- 10/Speed- 4 /Trick- 4/Recovery- 1/Defense- 1
High Tier (5.4)
Icy Claws
Way more dangerous, the user's nails are even longer and durable, sharper and so much more, it can cause even LIFE threatening slashes that can reach deeper into a person's flesh. Fun fact, when Remi saw Ashter as he came to check up on her, she attacked him due to the similarities in abilities. The ice causes an even quicker internal freeze, so a healer of Elite Tier standing is needed to rid of the effects of the icy effects. But it is noted that the victim needs to be around a burning fire upon being treated.
Moves stay the same.
Passive is unknown. But some noticed a colder temperature in Ashter's body which is resistant to colder environments.
Stats: Power- 10/Speed- 6/Trick- 6/Recovery- 1/ Defense- 1
Fun Facts!
  1. Ability is focused on my Elemental Claw set I did months ago!
  2. Rein's stat sheet and level were used. Upon looking into it, I based the level difference on Blyke's. This unknowingly made Ashter's stat change go from a 4.9 to a 5.4, something I based his stats based on Remi's points. Blyke managed to go from 4.5-5.0 which is a 0.5 boost. 4.9-5.4 is a 0.5 boost.
  3. The ability was focused on the Flame Claws ability Volcan and other agents also have. However, due to a lack of ability sheet, I am basing this on MY personal spread.
  4. I was going to base it off of water, but what's the point if I could've made Ashter a user of Hydrofreeze?
  5. Icy Claws stems from my first initial ability, Elementalist, but I decided I needed an Elite-High Tier bound oc, not a cringe 8.0 who can lose to John :<
  6. When he was in High School, he first discovered his ability. However, he honed his body and managed to become an Elite Tier (4.9) a month after, which allowed Wellston to recruit him due to his insane amount of growth within barely a month of gaining his ability.
  7. His mother's ability was simple flowers that grow on her. It is Low Tier in power and doesn't posses any perks besides making her a very great fashion icon for Low Tiers.

2023.05.28 02:59 autobuzzfeedbot 23 Useless Disney Facts That Are A Lot More Interesting Than These People Gave Them Credit For

  1. "Michelle Pfeiffer was one of the performers for Alice in the Main Street Electrical Parade in the 1970s."
  2. "How about the bullet hole in the glass above the ballroom scene in The Haunted Mansion?"
  3. "There are at least four (unsure of the number since 2018 when I last worked there) beagles that sniff the Disneyland hotels for bedbugs almost daily. They're amazing little sniffers and loved by all that work with them or have been honored to meet them. Disneyland makes good and sure no bedbugs come bugging ya!"
  4. "Doritos were invented at Disneyland."
  5. "The Jungle Cruise is behind the stores on Main Street. So all the trees you see over the tops of the building are jungle on the other side. It's most notable next to the fire station. Just a weird little tidbit that puts the size of the park in perspective."
  6. "Disney parks use a grayish green color nicknamed 'go away green' to camouflage things like show buildings and electrical boxes that they don't want you to notice in the park."
  7. "The letters that spelled out 'C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A' at California Adventure are now in Sacramento at Cal Expo. This is my favorite Disney fact. I grew up climbing on those letters and now I live close to Sacramento."
  8. "I’m Korean American, and I remember there was a 'Korean Day' at the parks in the ’80s! With a parade of Korean Celebrities! The park was packed with Korean People!"
  9. "A lot of people know about the Disneyland cats! They are an integral part of the Disneyland ecosystem. But what you might not know is that cats that are considered 'too friendly' are adopted out! Usually, Disney works with the local shelters and rescues to adopt out the super friendly kitties!"
  10. "You used to be able to buy bras on Main Street in Disneyland!"
  11. "Walt Disney designed the push-flap garbage can. He took it to manufacturers and everyone thought it was useless so he never filed for a patent."
  12. "New Orleans Square at Disneyland cost the same amount of money as the Louisiana Purchase."
  13. "There was a hostile Yippie takeover of Tom Sawyer's Island at Disneyland in 1970 that effectively shut the park down for one out of the only four times the park has been closed."
  14. "Back in 1999, they put a cast member in the haunted house dressed in a suit of armor. He prowled the area near the corridor of doors and his job was to sneak up on the doom buggies to scare passengers. It did not last because people would get scared and punch the knight or he would discover people doing intimate things in the buggies. I was on it with my dad, the knight scared the bejesus out of me and I screamed really loud and startled him too."
  15. "There are small offices in the castle. Source: Worked in one above Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique."
  16. "In 2004, Cary 'Jay' Sharp won a charity auction to become the Haunted Mansion’s 'official' 1,000th ghost. His honorary tombstone can be found near the Phantom Five at Disneyland with the text 'JAY, doctor lawyer legal clerk, forever buried in his work.'"
  17. "The singing bust on the haunted mansion that people think looks like Walt Disney is actually the guy who voiced Tony the Tiger (Thurl Ravenscroft). He did many other voices throughout Disneyland, too."
  18. "One of the more well-known ones, but it's still fun to drop on people who aren't park regulars or don't know about it. Haunted Mansion is mostly a facade building, with the stretching room (elevator) taking guests below ground, then they walk through a tunnel (double-image portrait gallery) that passes under the park's train tracks and into a whole other building for the majority of the Doom Buggy ride."
  19. "Bank of America was the sponsor of It's a Small World when it opened in 1966 at Disneyland. Louis B. Lundborg, the bank's board chairman, sat in the first boatload with Walt and some children."
  20. "On Main Street, on the right-hand side facing the castle, there's a little inlet roughly halfway through, by where the Starbucks is. There's usually some seating back there and that's where Disneyland's lockers are. Right next to the lockers, there's a brick wall with a water fountain. This wall was where they tested the look of various bricks while constructing Disneyland. One side has very smooth and regular bricks, the other has uneven and mismatched bricks, so they could see which style they preferred. When construction was finished, they either didn't have the money to replace the wall or left it there as a little nod to the construction efforts."
  21. "When I worked in the parking structure I found out there are way more plainclothes officers and security guards at the park than I previously thought."
  22. "Before popcorn was in the parks they used to sell peanuts but the shells were so messy so they switched to popcorn!!"
  23. Finally, "My 1992 season pass to Disneyland cost $250. It was a laminated card with my photo and was called a 'Disneyland Picture Passport.' It was good for the following 365 days, had no blackout days, and included parking."

2023.05.28 02:56 PeterNYCResistance Chinese guy has sex with three different latinas in a one day period, here's how!

Hey y'all sorry I haven't been active on reddit recently, after my amazing month hanging out with Guitaristfor3v3r (check out his awesome stories with amazing tips for dating in Latin America) https://www.reddit.com/AsianMasculinity/comments/10frn5i/mexico_city_dating_update_a_wild_first_three_days/ https://www.reddit.com/AsianMasculinity/comments/10ld8x6/mexico_city_update_it_keeps_getting_bette https://www.reddit.com/AsianMasculinity/comments/11gkq42/dating_in_mexico_city_the_grand_finale_part_33/ )
We hosted about 5 different reddit Asian bros in Mexico City and showed them around. I then took some time off and settled down with a girlfriend. But for my last month there I decided to be single and go out partying.

On Friday I went on a daytime date with a girl then took her home to hook up. We have met many times at the club and danced and made out but she was always with friends. I remember she called her family in my room to tell them she was coming home late and I knew that it was on. After she left a booty call I have been seeing came over and she slept over. Both these girls were from my favorite club and using the tips at the bottom of this post. These two hookup stories were not that interesting, just standard hookups that you guys can copy and paste the advice below and do yourself too.
On Saturday night I went out to meet a Mexican wingman around 2AM. The club had many large rooms and was at medium capacity. We met his friends who just stood around and chilled so I wanted to move around the club to be close to single girls or girl groups. I saw a cute, slim woman in her 30s leaning on a wall and approached her with my sarcastic fun approach. We made eye contact and smiled, then took her hand, kissed it like a silly romantic telenovela TV show, and started dancing with her. It worked, and my friend came in trying to translate for me. I realized I had just had sex twice the previous night, so I handed her to him, and they spent the next two hours dancing, grinding, and making out. I stood nearby to protect him from any cockblocks but he said it's fine and I should go find a girl for myself. I laughed because I had sex twice the previous night but then realized that if I had sex again tonight, it would make a legendary story with three girls in a one day period.
So I casually approached girls, not being direct or aggressive but playful and indirect, commenting on the environment, like pointing out couples making out or the music. I approached two different girls but realized they were just being friendly, so I left them trying to find a girl that was more open to me. I saw a tall woman dancing alone by the bar. I danced with her separately with space between us. If she was interested in hooking up, she would have gotten closer, but since she didn't so I didn't try to force physicality with her. However, a shorter Mexican chubby girl joined our dance, and as we danced separately, she gradually came closer to me until we started grinding and eventually making out.
The club was closing in 30 minutes so all her friends came over to get ready to leave. Our six person group consisted of me, the shorter Mexican chubby girl, her hot dyed blonde-haired sister, a guy the blonde-haired sister had just met that night, her cousin, and another slim and sexy petite 19-year-old cousin. We moved to another large room, and it took another 30 minutes for everyone to use the bathroom. While waiting, the short Mexican chubby girl and I were making out. When I looked next to us, the 19-year-old slim and sexy petite cousin was giving me seductive F me eyes. Whenever the chubby girl wasn't looking, I would sneak a kiss with the 19-year-old. Eventually, we started three-way kissing, which was incredibly hot. My Mexican guy friend was nearby with his woman to translate for me, and he thought me making out with two girls at the same time was awesome.
At this point, I had the thought that while having a threesome with two family members would be amazing, it also had a high chance of failure, such as the girls slut-shaming each other. So I focused more on kissing the 19-year-old. The chubby girl didn't like that but accepted it. I then started "seeding the pull" by telling the 19-year-old that my place was two blocks away, and I had weed. She consulted with her family members, and the chubby girl said it was her group of friends, so she made the rules. I sighed because I thought this was the point where I would be cockblocked. However, the chubby girl said her 19-yeah-old cousin wouldn't go to my house, and instead, we would all go to her apartment 20 minutes north for an afterparty.
My initial reaction was to go home and call it a night. I didn't want to risk going 20 minutes north to a rural area with five other strangers. But based on my social skills and the feeling I got from these girls being kind-hearted and friendly, I decided it would be safe. I agreed to leave with them and told my Mexican guy friend he could leave me alone and go home with his girl. We all went outside, and I took the lead and suggested getting two taxis for six people to her place. I asked them to wait there outside while I ran home to grab beers and weed and ran as I could like a hollywood action scene. The guy and I called $5 Didi taxis to their place. In the back seat of my taxi, it was me and the 19-year-old girl, her sister sat in the front. We were getting touchy and kissy in the back, and she whispered in my ear that she was thankful for me paying for the taxi and wanted to “repay me”. We arrived at the apartment complex where the chubby girl lived, but those three were on a separate adventure to buy liquor. Our group killed time for 30 minutes waiting for them. I was worried I would lose the arousal of my girl because it was chilly outside and her sister was there. However, I felt confident in the hookup because of how she had pursued me earlier. I didn't make any excessive moves on her physically or verbally. We simply engaged in regular casual conversation. The second group arrived, and we all entered the apartment with the liquor. It was 6 AM, and we had a little mini dance party. My girl tried to pour liquor into my mouth, but I only drank a little because I was certain we would have sex.
The layout of the apartment consisted of a living room with a sofa and TV where we partied, a bedroom without a door, and a bedroom with a door. The other couple, the hot dyed blonde-haired girl, and the guy, started making out. My girl took me by the hand and led me to the bedroom before they could use the room first. I quickly ran to the bathroom to pee and, when I returned, she was undressing. The party and music music was still thumping outside, and she was in her bra and panties while I was in my underwear. She got on top of me and started passionately kissing me. I picked her up, threw her onto the bed, and got on top of her. I took off her bra and panties, and then my underwear. When I touched her, she was soaking wet. I told her to relax while I touched myself. As we had sex, I reflected on what was happening at that moment. I had already had natural intimate unprotected sex with two different women the previous night, and tonight I had a pick of three girls who wanted to hookup with me because dating in Mexico is so great for Asian men, and picked the hot 19-year-old petite girl. The main thought that crossed my mind was that I would write an epic awesome story on Asian Masculinity and inspire a ton of guys. It may sound silly, but that's the truth. We had amazing sex, and I won't forget the feeling of her legs wrapped around me, her repeating "cogerme," the other couple thumping on the door for their turn on the bed, and me finishing inside her unprotected. Immediately after I finished, she was ready for round two, trying to get on top of me and clawing my body. The other couple kept banging on the door so we left the room.
The next four hours were spent sleeping on the living room couch while reggaeton music videos played on the TV. She slept using my arm as a pillow. I remember several times when I tried to move my arm to go to the bathroom, and would she subconsciously while asleep pull my arm back under her head. That was so cute. Some point I woke her up and, got on top of her for a lovemaking session, then went back to sleep. Morning came, and we slowly woke up one by one. Once we were all awake, we sat in the second bedroom and joked about the previous night, excluding the sex of course. Since I knew everyone was hungry, I ordered a large bucket of KFC for $15 using the Didi app, and they were extremely grateful. One of the girls mentioned that her parents were about to come back, so the guy and I left. He helped me find my way back to Mexico City, and I arrived home by 4 PM, completely exhausted but with a smile on my face. The next day was my last day so the 19 year old came over then after she left my regular hookup came over then I ran to the airport.

It took me an entire month to process the events and emotions of that night, like experiencing a positive form of PTSD. Every time I think about it, I can't help but smile. I hope that you, my Asian brother reading this, get to experience something similar one day.
TLDR Some notes I keep in mind when going out at night:
  1. Take a nap and go out late. You'll be sober and full of energy while other guys are drunk and not at their best, and girls will be selecting non-stupid guys. You don't need to drink heavily. Just have one beer and sip it slowly to appear as part of the crowd. You can also bring a disposable vape to look like you are just an innocent casual guy having fun.
  2. Move around to where there are groups of girls and stand near them in proximity, when you are ready and they look bored, approach them by making innocent comments about the environment or about them. Let them try your interesting drink or vape. If she's not reciprocating or only being friendly, smile and go back to your friends. Don't try to force approaches to work like some try hard PUA. You will see interested girls latch onto you with high interest. Repeat this process until you find a girl who latches onto you. Once you find a girl who's interested, ask her who she is with and if she can leave them at the end of the night, stay close to her, buy a round of drinks, dance and make out, and "seed the pull" by suggesting going back to your place for drinks. If her logistics are bad but she likes you, exchange contact information and send a selfie pic of you both to her and set up future plans. But if her logistics happen to be good, continue dancing and enjoying the night with her until it's time to leave, and then arrange transportation for both of you.
  3. For the few guys that need to hear this, don't be cheap when you are traveling. If a beer costs a few bucks and you get the feeling a girl likes you, just buy it for her. Or get a Didi taxi to make things easier. Or get a decent place at a great location. These things will really be appreciated by the girl.
  4. A great way to follow up with girls after getting their contact information is by sending them a really cool and trendy but low cost cafe, bar, or restaurant and asking if they have been there, and if not then make plans to go. Because when you message a girl the next morning to set up a date, it is like “you are approaching her for a second time” and need something shiny and interesting to get her attention again, such as a good place. Do not message her “hey lets get dinner” because there is no time or location attached to it and needs investment from her and looks needy. It is better to bring up a cool spot which gets her attention and interest again. I did this and got a near 100% response rate from all my girls, it was awesome.

Can y'all upvote this? I usually get like 50k views per post but only 20 upvotes, it would help the reddit algo. Check out Guitaristfor3v3r's posts linked above which have even more tips about dating in Latin America! Let me know if you guys have any questions below and I will do my best to answer.

2023.05.28 02:36 GummiesAreFunny Three nights ago, my girlfriend moved back in with her parents after living with my mom and I for almost a year, I’m heartbroken.

This is a throwaway account, I’ve been having trouble getting this to post so hopefully it works this time.
TLDR: My girlfriend moved away after living with me for almost a year due to many circumstances and the long distance is leaving me lonely and sad.
For my feelings and the situations to make sense I’ll start from the beginning. I (F18) met my gf (F18) when high school started. We were really close freshman year but not anything romantic because she was with her now ex at the time. In our second year, we didn’t have similar classes so we weren’t as close, and she was also getting close with her now best friend at the time. In a personal moment of vulnerability for my gf that I won’t go into detail about during that year, she said she liked me. However, I did not ask her further about this because she was feeling mixed feelings about a lot of people and things and I didn’t want to overwhelm her. When the pandemic hit I didn’t speak to really anyone for a few months. Until Christmas of 2020 my aunt gifted me an iPad, and I was able to FaceTime with my friends because at the time I had a Samsung phone. My gf was one of the people I got closer to, and eventually in the summer she confessed she liked me once again, one thing lead to another and we were together. We finished high school, but her situation, especially with her mom was getting dire and unsafe, and also at that time, her best friend was living with her still being 17 after a long story of a not so safe home environment. I begged my mom to let them stay with us, as it would be her, my moms bf, my toddler brother, myself, my gf and her best friend, and that we would all do college. My gfs best friend did not want to leave with us because she did not want to leave her bf, as we were moving 2 hours away. After staying for two days, left to go stay with my gfs parents for a bit, and then got sent to live with relatives far away, and it wasn’t much of an improvement. My gf stayed with us since then, and we did college. She did good in college compared to myself, however she did not like the major she chose and wanted to switch. However, the only way to switch meant she had to have some requirements, and even then it’s not guaranteed based on limited space. The same program back where she used to live had less requirements and more space. My mom had also been going through some tough financial burdens as I’ve mentioned in a previous post but to sum it up, house issues, and family issues put a strain on her and her bfs relationship, so my mom does anything to make him happy so he doesn’t get up and leave her to struggle. Recently, we had gotten two kittens with my moms permission, one for her and her bf and one for my gf and I. We only had one litter box at the time since they were very small. My gf was visiting her grandma when we got them, and she was mad that they weren’t sleeping with me, and we ended up having a huge argument, which continued when she got back, she didn’t like that my mom wanted the kittens with her bf and wanted to separate them, but my mom didn’t want to do that. My mom layed it into me when I asked in private if we could negotiate something. I’ve always been appreciative of what she does for us, and I personally didn’t care, but my gf said I was always going to put my moms needs in-front of hers and I didn’t want to be one of those partners. My mom expressed that she feels like I do too much and she doesn’t do so much, which was true, as I didn’t want her to feel unwelcome or overwhelmed which happened anyway. My mom loves her as a person and loves her company but was feeling overwhelmed. She said she just wanted a bit of help and to just follow what she says. I went outside to clean and I cried because I hate confrontation and to be yelled at. When I went back to my room my gf said she was leaving. A lot of factors lead to her leaving but I guess this recent event was the final push. We had been petty fighting due to stress for a few months, and in these arguments she would threaten to move out and leave me. She said she still wanted to be with me even though she was now actually moving out. We eventually told my mom and she cried for a bit, but understood and said if she ever needed to come back she could. My gf packed and left 3 nights ago, we broke the news to my moms bf two nights ago, and was also sad but understood and said the same thing. I haven’t really had time to process, as two days ago we ran errands all day, then yesterday my mom has flown overseas for a week relating to the family issues, and I have to watch my toddler brother since plane tickets are expensive right now. I’m heartbroken, because we haven’t spoke much since she left, I still love her and I know we have both been busy. Her best friend now that she is 18 is going to live with her again with no issues so she can do school too. I feel isolated and lonely being so far away and without really anyone to talk to. I haven’t cried since she left, as I held them back as she was leaving, and can’t bring myself to cry in-front of my mom again. I couldn’t force her to stay though because if I loved her I have to be willing to let her go. Thank you for listening.

2023.05.28 02:35 Mysterious_Day3581 I might stop breathing

1 minute without Synapse X, I can’t stop shaking and I’m having severe mental breakdowns. I woke up today trying to log onto Synapse X but it was down, I had a major panic attack but managed to calm down after a few hours. I couldn’t go to school today, I am so worried that I even took my dads gun from the shed. I am nothing without Synapse, it is my life, it is my destiny, without Synapse, I wouldn't be able to do anything. Synapse is the best thing ever made and I can't get rid of my addiction to it, it is the best game in existence . I can't stop trembling and crying, I am very worried. I used all of my money on Synapse, my only nickles and dimes. I don't know what to do. Synapse can't be gone for any longer cause if it does then I'll go insane again.. breaking my mouse, chair, house and everything I own. Synapse is very amazing and I can't lose it. Synapse is my life, I met my amazing girlfriend john wihle using it, I was delivering pizza's in bloxburg with an ultra grinding exploit, when I saw this amazingly attractive woman named, CoolDjoleProGamerYT, she was so cute, I flushed. I found her home later then and tried to talk to her, she was so kind and cute that i accidentally typed my thoughts out "mind: she's so cute.." and she flushed then i got nervous, we then went in and made out, after that we went on many dates to Adopt Me, where we adopted 2 boys named DemonicLuciferr, and RedDoflaming0. Demonic and Red were so cute that I even took them out of town and took them to Brookhaven. after that we had our own child in Bloxburg on our rooftop named lazerlamps. Our kids were so cute and amazing that I even fed them my special milk, they liked it so much that they wanted it again. and the day after... Syanpse was down and I went through my panic attack, Shivering in fear of losing my fiance and kids. I am so scared that I might just lose my mind and go insane... I want my kids back...

2023.05.28 02:31 volodo 1st part out of 3 - 800+ug trip report

Here is the longest I have ever written. My really heavy trips that are like a sequels to one another and they are totally connected. Sorry for the bad English - not my main language. I also will write only about the first trip this time - it took me so long, so only if you are interested in me sharing the 2nd and the 3rd trip with you, only then I will write them.
Fast backstory - mid 35, married, a 2 year old kid, running my own business. Started with MJ 12 years ago, then couple years later met Lucy and since then that is my base to every trip - sometimes pure, sometimes mixing. For many years I have been tripping alone in doses range 200-500. Mostly for fun. Never less, but also never higher. Never less, because thought that it was boring, but never higher because I was scared loosing control and do something that would hurt me, especially since I was going always solo. And for past 2 years I didn't trip much- didn't felt the need and didn't have much time. Also important note for the story - my wife is a doctor and she is against any use of any substances and we had an agreement with her, that even if I decide to use it, than I have to promise her that I will do it in a way she wouldn't know about it. I never lie to her ever, but I lie only about when I trip, saying that I just stay at work late. I feel really bad for it. But I was tripping way before I met her and she said that she would never ever be with a man, who uses any drugs. I know she would not divorce me because of it, but I still leave her out of it. So I trip usually outside, in rented places. Or overnight in the living room of our house - she is a heavy sleeper, so I don't need to lie then, I just trip and join her in the bed near the morning. Story will be about 3 very heavy trips I had this year. SO, here goes!
Prequel trip, Short prequel - it was last summer, was tripping in the wooden rented cabin. I dropped around 700 (first time over my 500 limit). It was by accident, I took the wrong batch. I dropped thinking 6 tabs of 75, but I accidentally took to my drive the 120 tabs (understood the mistake only when got back home), and I added mushrooms to the mix as well. Long story short - my first comatose state, lying on the floor for hours , experiencing "death", flying into the cosmos and experiencing the meaning of life. I will quote myself from the last reddit post I made a year ago:
"I felt like there's just laws of gravity Because felt like gravity is the only force that travels anywhere Without knowledge of time it just exists And it felt like we are just energy floating around the space. And that everything we know and see around, sounds and feelings - all that is just to set boundaries for this energy to be contained in one place. Without my shell, my history, memories and emotions I will just scatter, like energy of supernova, all light particles fly from the epicentre away into the darkness... Death. And life - is what contains this energy, let's it develop and sparkle up to the last day. Life is fucking beautiful"
So yeah, my first real dive into the deep. Time stretched to infinity, never ending trip and me not existing and not being able to see my own hands. I thought a lot about that experience and if I ever should try the heavy dose again. Tried to find a trip sitter for myself that I could trust, but never did and decided to leave it at that for some time.
1st trip - Winter 2023. I am at a very low point in my life - tired, some business struggles with profit, same at home and the toddler kid tested our marriage. I didn’t trip for around 4 months, never had a chance to take a break, but I decided that it is enough. I rented a AirBnB house (the owner lived in other house just 40 metres away) with an inside pool, took LSD with me more than I needed or planned to take. I didn't intend to take a hero dose that night, but was to lazy to unpack it and cut it, because mine comes not perforated, so I took everything, around 20 tabs of 100ug. So I relax during the day, visit sauna and the pool and closer to midnight I had a time to reflect on the life crisis I was in. I tried to think about positive solutions and how to cheer myself up. I usually drop tabs at midnight, so by getting closer to the start I become sadder and even more angry by the life I was living, how unfair to me it was, that I have to go that long, pay so much, lie about just to take a small break. The break I thought I deserved the most.
So i take the strip, look at it and just go YOLO - I cut it in half and consume around 1000ug by 22:00. The real effects started already on 10min and around 20min they become intense. And at that point I became mad as hell - firstly I started to yell and curse. I decided to record myself on the phone (just the sound), so I can reflect on the trip next day. I just walked around the house shouting and whining about my life crisis, about how nobody gives a fuck, how I am tired of working my ass off and still have to go that far -to rent a house, drive somewhere and hide from my family members just to have a chill night and take a small break. Around 1 hour pass (it was the last time I looked at the phone clock) and that was when whole hell breaks loose - I start to demolish the house in anger. I break furniture, I destroy the rags and curtains, I broke the window while still continue to yell "I don't fucking care anymore". I swear I saw how the lights turned up in the owners house and I knew - that is it... He will call the police and the most intense part of the trip I will spend in jail. I grab the phone and run to the pool and sauna area, close the door behind me, turn on all the lights and prepared for the worse. There were tinted windows in the poll area all around and since I turned all the lights and it was dark outside - everyone should be able to see what is happening inside, especially the owner. I lifted the heavy marble coffee table over my head and at top of my lungs I yelled "I give you 5 minutes to stop me, or I will through this table it the glass sauna door". (The important note here is that the pool area had an installed radio station and speakers, so some random "relax" station was on all the time playing random songs while all of this unfolded)
So I just stand there, half naked, with coffee table over my head, waiting for someone to enter. I waited for the police lights to show up. I think I saw somebody to press his face against the tinted window to look inside, so I yelled again "If you don't stop me now, than all of this is and everything that will fallow is your fault" At that point I was blaming not just the owner, but absolutely everyone - my wife, my kid, my employees, myself. "I earned this time, I earned to have my rest, I earned all of this and I will prove it to you! If you are not stopping me now, than I am right! And no matter how crazy you will think I am, I will prove you that LSD is the key to all the questions" At that time the conception of the time started to blur, like there was no start or end point to anything. I started to talk like if I was from the future refering to this present moment (I am quoting myself here, because those words are recorded on my phone) "This trip ended, now is morning and you are not stopping me yet - that means I am right, I was always right and I deserve this insignificant resting hours in this whole eternity"... And still nobody was coming in. I gave up and dropped the coffee table on the floor. At that point my body started to shut down. I felt down on the floor, I could not see my hands or body. I tried to get up, but I was falling every time as though my body was disintegrating. I felt my heart stopping, like if I was having a cardiac arrest. I was not being able to take a breath and was choking. A huge pain in my chest as the life was leaving my body. I felt the blood stopping in my neck . Lights started randomly to turn off, turn on, music fading in and away. I though someone entered the room as I was dying on the floor. The roof of the house collapsing and falling on top of me. The huge amount of pressure against my head as my skull cracked open. Darkness and just like white noise for eternity. Just random rays of light and immense force of gravitation ripping me to shreds.
And at this point some magical shit started to happen, that even till this day I am convinced was real and still not sure how to explain it. 2nd and 3rd trip only convinced me even more, but that story will be later. The first thing I heard after eternal darkness was the radio - the titanic song by Celine DIon. But the word were not the same, she was talking to me. Like some entity started to talk to me through different songs on the radio. I can't remember the words exactly, but the titanic song was that they (entities) understand my pain, that they know I am tired, but that in the end of life we will be all together and my pain and suffering will be over. Then the song changed and now it is some jazz song where the male voice is arguing with female voice about why he (male voice was representing me) has to suffer through this life, to be that alone in his struggles and the female voice was trying to convince him that it is all worth it at the end. The next song (It's Raining men) was saying that I am good man, that I have to continue finding moments also for my own pleasure and I have the right for the rest I deserved. The mirror appeared in front of me and I saw reflection of my tired face. Then I saw my phone that was switching through all the good pictures of the life I was living - mostly photos of how happy are my kid and wife, how much love I gave them and that I should not give up on life. I saw the photos that were transferred to my home HDD for storage and should not be on my phone. And songs were changing from one to another, sometimes fast. Sometimes playing full length and sometimes not even playing for 5 seconds and I know that no radio station would prank me like this. Some other familiar song switched and the words said that I had to man up, to be strong, that life is full of shit and that I need to be strong to get through it. That all the entities on the "Other side" will be patiently waiting for me, when I will fulfil my purpose here on Earth. That the universe will still hit me hard, that my life will be challenging, but since I dove so deep and for the first time looked behind the curtains of how the thing work in this universe, saw the "Other Side" - I will be rewarded from time to time, that they will help me be strong and be n the right path. And that I was right - I deserved the rest, I deserved to get a break and that I will get this brake this time, but I should not push my luck any further.
At this point I started to have a feeling of love. Same feeling I had when I met my future wife and fell in love with her. I started asking if this female entity was some kind of form of my wife or her soul, or her astral projection? Why do you care so much? And she said nothing, but also did not denied it. I felt the urge to fight for my life, fight no matter the difficulties. To fight and do everything possible to make my family happy, to protect them and be there when they need me. My vision started to get back, I saw the roof of the pool area. I was lying on the floor, the bright light was still on. I looked on the sides and found my phone nearby. I rested myself against the wall and noticed that it was around 4 in the morning (6 hours into the trip). The last "custom" song started to play on the radio - the woman sang about if she chose the right guy in her life to say YES to. She also told me that I should ask for help and share this experience with my wife. I involuntarily grabbed my phone and opened up the chat with my wife. As I wrote "Sorry, I messed up, I need something to tell you, call me" the song changed to her being certain I am the right man for her to marry. And here I finally started to taking back control on my actions and I erased almost everything except for "sorry", and the song changed to depressed tone, that maybe she was wrong in choosing me. I started to type same message again and the song became positive again. And in the end I just sent to my wife on word - "sorry". That was the moment the song ended, the radio switched to forecast, told me that the day will be sunny and warm (we don't have warm days in winter, there was snow outside) and wished me a great day.
And here the magic ended, like if someone flipped the switch. Radio started to play usual retro songs with no changed lyrics. I tried to stand up, but I could not do it right away. I felt a sharp pain on the forehead. It felt like I hit the head, so apparently I really did fall on the floor head first. The trip was ending really fast, the memory started to get back to me as I started to have more control over my hands and feet. I grabbed the phone again and checked if it was still recording - it was. I started to look around and saw the coffee table flipped on the side. I remembered how I demolished the whole house. I got up and made my way to the closed to door, that was leading to the living room. I was so afraid and I was certain that there will be someone - police or at least the owner waiting for me. I opened the door, turned the lights... the house was fucking intact! I thought that I was tripping and that is just an illusion, but the more I went through the rooms, I didn't see even a tiny bit of destruction. I destroyed so many things, that felt so real, how furniture broke, how kitchen appliances and ceramic broke into small pieces smashing against the wall and floors.... Nothing! I tripped hundreds of times before and always knew what was real and what was not. But this time I still don't know how to explain it. Even the "broken" window was intact. I ran back to the pool area and looked for the cracks on the floor, since the coffee table I threw was heavy to break the tiles. And I did find a small crack right underneath where the table landed, so it meant that at least the coffee table I really did throw that night. But that was much later than I destroyed everything else, how can I remember the coffee table and hallucinate everything else. I remembered that I had recording on the phone. I hid in the bedroom and started listening - I really did yell on top of my lungs almost for an hour and then I heard some noises, but nothing that can be defined as 100% of something breaking. Yeah, some furniture sounds, maybe something fell couple of times on the floor but no glass breaking or anything else. But I could swear by how real it was, that I did all of this.
But still there was other problem - I really did yell a lot and there is just no way the owner or his family members would not hear me. My windows were open through out the night. I looked through the curtains to see if owners windows were open and they were. So there is just no way he could not hear me yelling almost for 1 hour, promising to destroy his house. Imagine you rent out a house and hear someone yelling rants and wants to destroys your house, and you hear something happening inside. I would certainly called the cops if I was in his shoes. " But Ok, ok.... Even if he didn't call the cops, he most certainly will have questions in the morning" - I thought. I went through the house 5 times more and except for the crack in the tiles in the pool area, there was no sign of anything being destroyed or damaged. And even the crack was not that noticeable. I went to the bed, where I laid till the morning and started to think through all possible explanations I would say to the owner and all possible question he could have.
The morning came and my wife called - told me she just opened the chat and saw my "Sorry" asking what I meant. I said that I thought I would be home earlier from my work tonight, but had to return back so wrote her "Sorry". Matter closed. But then I remembered the request of the entity - to ask my wife for help and to share this experience with her. Ok, if I will tell her and try to prove my point, she would think I am crazy, or I have a psychosis or something - and that would certainly not make thing better in our relationship. But not asking her for help - I felt that I failed her astral projection from the future, that it would somehow change my future and the life I will have after I die. I really didn't know what to think and what to do (after 2nd and 3rd trip it became a bit clear)
And for the AirBnB - I got out, closed the house, left the key under the mat, and with the pupils still wide as possible, sat in my car and drove to owners gate waiting for him to get out and talk to me about what happened this night. But he looked through the window and just smiled, waved at me and opened the gate remotely... I drove away. In 2 hours his wife wrote a review on the AirBnB that I was a great guest, tidy, quiet, etc. That they would be happy to see me again and would recommend me to other AirBnB hosts. I was shocked!
Like WTF? Did they really not hear me? Or they just decided to close the matter, not talk to me and hope that I would never get back?... And then I started to think about what happened that night. Quote: "And that I was right - I deserved the rest, I deserved to get a break and that I will get this brake this time, but I should not push my luck any further" - that what I was told that night. Did they (entities) protect me this time? Was that something they showed me, that I could've done, but I didn't? Or they fixed the destruction I made and shielded me from the owner by isolating the sound? I was ready to even believe in this kind of miracles.... And I still think that something not normal happened that night.
So, this is the trip report. I hope you like it and it wasn't boring. Any questions welcomed. And if you want me to write 2nd and 3rd part - let me know.

2023.05.28 02:15 LongDistanceTaxis Rage 2 xbox one review

Rage 2 is the latest installment in the world-renowned first-person shooter series that was developed by id Software and Avalanche Studios. The game is set in a post-apocalyptic open world, where players take on the role of a ranger who has to fight their way through a variety of enemies and factions to save what remains of humanity. The game was released on May 14, 2019, and has garnered a lot of attention from gamers all over the world. In this article, we will take a closer look at Rage 2 Xbox One review, and see if it lives up to the hype.
Rage 2 has been praised for its fast-paced action and stunning visuals. The game features a wide range of weapons, vehicles and abilities that players can use to take down their enemies. The open-world nature of the game also allows players to explore the vast wasteland and complete various side missions and quests. The game is set in a vibrant and colorful world, which is a departure from the series' previous dark and gritty aesthetic. The game's soundtrack is also exceptional, with a mix of techno and heavy metal that perfectly complements the game's frenetic gameplay.
One of the standout features of Rage 2 is its combat system. The game's gunplay is top-notch, with a wide variety of weapons that feel and sound satisfying to use. Players can also use special abilities such as ground pounds and dash attacks to quickly close the distance and take down enemies. The game's AI is also notable, with enemies that have unique strengths and weaknesses that players must exploit in order to succeed. The game's vehicular combat is also impressive, with players able to take control of various vehicles to traverse the game's vast open world and engage in high-speed battles.
The game's story, however, has received mixed reviews. While the game's world-building is excellent, the game's plot falls flat with a lacklustre narrative and forgettable characters. The game's dialogue is also hit and miss, with some lines feeling forced and cheesy. The game's pacing is also inconsistent, with some missions feeling overly long and others being too short.
In terms of graphics and performance, the game is visually stunning on the Xbox One platform. The game runs at a steady 60 frames per second, with minimal stuttering or frame drops. The game's in-game graphics are crisp and vibrant, with impressive lighting and particle effects that bring the game's wasteland to life. The game's fast-paced action also runs seamlessly, with no noticeable lag or

2023.05.28 02:04 Max_Boom93 [F4F] Shorter lady seeking a long term Roleplay with taller, or much taller woman

Good evening everyone, I hope you are having a fantastic day today! I have been playing Railroad Empire 2 all day, and now I am looking for someone to help me take a break and create a long term story for us to enjoy.
I do not have a specific plot in mind at the moment, although Slice of life stories are great as a back up plan! I am more so looking for a specific physical attribute for any story we may find ourselves engaged in. I find giant women incredibly intoxicating. I am looking for someone that is willing to role-play as a woman around 10 feet tall, or taller!
I do not have any particular preference to the appearance of your character, outside of her height, and I am perfectly ok with Fandom characters that are not 10ft tall being played that way!
I understand this isn't for everyone, so if not that is perfectly fine by me! Hope you have a nice evening if I have lost your interest!
As far as literacy is concerned, I am for 3-6 sentences each post, but tend to go longer if the situation is enhanced by more detail. I know that not every little action needs to be described, but I would probably put more into describing a house than my breakfast.
Anyway, if you are still interested in playing my opposite as a very tall woman, please shoot me a message! I anticipate being away for another 5 hours at least, and I have tomorrow and Monday off from work as well! I can't wait to hear from you!

2023.05.28 01:46 LiedTo2022 Safe for little one to play outside?

We are currently living with my in-laws due to some financial issues (VERY long story)
Their neighborhood has a small feral cat population, tho most are friendly just still a little shy. My mil feeds them all, and has taken in 2 litters from our resident "mama cat" (thankfully she was recently fixed) however her 2 adult toms from litter 1 are intact and roam free.
Is it even safe to let my toddler play outside? They are constantly in the yard since she's the only one who feeds them, pooping and peeing everywhere. They also have 2 dogs who eat this, then go themselves. No, she will not call anyone to remove the cats, and I personally don't want them going to a shelter in case they'll be killed.
But, I don't want to rob my baby of the joys of playing outdoors! Do I have an options? Or is it just my parents house or the park?

2023.05.28 01:45 Orangezonethrowaway What part of a manic episode is this?

She usually purposefully stops taking her medication in the spring and then goes manic. Her family will soon convince her to go to a therapist/institute for proper assistance/guidance and get back on track (take her meds)
However, she has burned so many bridges this year that none of her family members want to help her. We've been divorced for a few years now and share a child. Our interactions only involve him. We don't discuss anything but him, so I have no clue about her diagnosis or how she behaves when manic, other than stories I hear from police/friends....
Twice this week, she's been found at a bar and her house completely unresponsive. For example; police were called to a bar where she was sitting but not speaking to anyone and refused to leave when they closed. The cops came to talk to her and she didn't say anything from the point they met her at the bar, to putting her in their vehicle, to having the EMS take her to the hospital via ambulance. Just a blank stare and no words....
In the other incident, her neighbor called the police because her tea kettle was going off along with her smoke detector for over 20 minutes. When they arrived and opened her door, she was sitting on the couch, staring at the TV and unresponsive.

Is this the depressive part after going manic? Is this typical of bipolar 1 or 2? Is this a cry for help? Not sure what to make of it, as again, her family is usually involved at this point....

Thanks for any guidance....

I’m not too sure if I am allowed to say this on this Reddit, but I have a few fixes/suggestions for two UsefulCharts charts. Please note I am in no way criticising the work that has been done there, I still think the charts look amazing nonetheless.
  1. On the map of the Christian Denominations Chart, Greek islands in the Aegean Ocean appear to be coloured grey (matching with Turkey), instead of being red (to match with Greece and Eastern Orthodoxy).
  2. On the new version of the Biblical Family Tree, I think Sarah’s relationship to Abraham needs to be shown, however it is not.
  3. I think the boxes for Jesus and Mary could be a bit larger (and Mary with a photo) since they are the two most important figures in the New Testament.
  4. I think it would be beneficial to re-add the large rounded black strips that say “The Flood”, “Exile in Babylon”, etc., as they were really useful tools in pinpointing figures to Biblical events.
  5. I think it would be better if Jacob’s children with Bilhah and Ziplah are actually physically shown on the tree with a line. It is something I always thought would be better and actually turn it into a family tree as such.
  6. I am not sure if this is on purpose, but the timelines on the left side of the tree have capital letters of different sizes, so for example “pErSIAN pErIOD”.
  7. I am not the biggest fan of the slightly rounded curves on the boxes with names in them, but i understand it’s for aesthetics.
What I like about the chart: - It now has the Christian timeline and Jewish timeline, instead of a Judo-Christian timeline and a secular timeline. - I love that Jesus’ exact connections have been shown - It’s interesting to see how historical leaders intertwine with Biblical stories, which is what has been shown on here. - I love how John the Baptist’s relation has been added.
Take what you want from the suggestions. Again, I’m in no way criticising the charts and I really appreciate all the effort that has been put into them so we can enjoy them.
