2023.05.28 04:48 moe_master The world longest joke (Pt 1)

So, there's a man crawling through the desert.
He'd decided to try his SUV in a little bit of cross-country travel, had great fun zooming over the badlands and through the sand, got lost, hit a big rock, and then he couldn't get it started again. There were no cell phone towers anywhere near, so his cell phone was useless. He had no family, his parents had died a few years before in an auto accident, and his few friends had no idea he was out here.
He stayed with the car for a day or so, but his one bottle of water ran out and he was getting thirsty. He thought maybe he knew the direction back, now that he'd paid attention to the sun, and thought he'd figured out which way was north, so he decided to start walking. He figured he only had to go about 30 miles or so and he'd be back to the small town he'd gotten gas in last.
He thinks about walking at night to avoid the heat and sun, but based upon how dark it actually was the night before, and given that he has no flashlight, he's afraid that he'll break a leg or step on a rattlesnake. So, he puts on some sun block, puts the rest in his pocket for reapplication later, brings an umbrella he'd had in the back of the SUV with him to give him a little shade, pours the windshield wiper fluid into his water bottle in case he gets that desperate, brings his pocket knife in case he finds a cactus that looks like it might have water in it, and heads out in the direction he thinks is right.
He walks for the entire day. By the end of the day he's really thirsty. He's been sweating all day, and his lips are starting to crack. He's reapplied the sunblock twice, and tried to stay under the umbrella, but he still feels sunburned. The windshield wiper fluid sloshing in the bottle in his pocket is really getting tempting now. He knows that it's mainly water and some ethanol and coloring, but he also knows that they add some kind of poison to it to keep people from drinking it. He wonders what the poison is, and whether the poison would be worse than dying of thirst.
He pushes on, trying to get to that small town before dark.
By the end of the day, he starts getting worried. He figures he's been walking at least three miles an hour, according to his watch for over ten hours. That means that if his estimate was right, he should be close to the town. Unfortunately, he doesn't recognize any of this. He had to cross a dry creek bed a mile or two back, and he doesn't remember coming through it in the SUV. He figures that maybe he got his direction off just a little and that the dry creek bed was just off to one side of his path. He tells himself that he's close, and that after dark he'll start seeing the town lights over one of these hills. That'll be all he needs.
As it gets dim enough that he starts stumbling over small rocks and things, he finds a spot and sits down to wait for full dark and the town lights.
Full dark comes before he knows it. He must have dozed off. He stands back up and turns all the way around. He sees nothing but stars.
He wakes up the next morning feeling absolutely lousy. His eyes are gummy and his mouth and nose feel like they're full of sand. He’s so thirsty that he can't even swallow. He barely got any sleep because it was so cold. He'd forgotten how cold it got at night in the desert and hadn't noticed it the night before because he'd been in his car.
He knows the Rule of Threes - three minutes without air, three days without water, three weeks without food - then you die. Some people can make it a little longer, in the best situations. The desert heat and having to walk and sweat isn't the best situation to be in without water. Unless he finds water, he figures, this is his last day.
He rinses out his mouth with a little of the windshield wiper fluid. He waits for a while after spitting that little bit out to see if his mouth goes numb, or he feels dizzy or something. Has his mouth gone numb? Is it just in his mind? He's not sure. He'll go a little farther, and if he still doesn't find water, he'll try drinking some of the fluid.
Then he has to face his next, harder question - which way does he go from here? Does he keep walking the same way as yesterday (assuming that he still knows which way that is), or does he try a new direction? He has no idea what to do.
Looking at the hills and dunes around him, he thinks he knows the direction he was heading before. Just going by a feeling, he points himself somewhat to the left of that, and starts walking.
As he walks, the day starts heating up. The desert, too cold just a couple of hours before, soon becomes an oven again. He sweats a little at first, and then stops. He starts getting worried at that. He knows that when you stop sweating, you’re in trouble. It’s usually right before heat stroke..
He decides that it's time to try the windshield wiper fluid. He can't wait any longer - if he passes out, he's dead. He stops in the shade of a large rock, takes the bottle out, opens it, and takes a mouthful. He slowly swallows it, making it last as long as he can. It feels so good in his dry and cracked throat that he doesn't even care about the nasty taste. He takes another mouthful, and makes it last too. Slowly, he drinks half the bottle. He figures that since he's drinking it, he might as well drink enough to make some difference and keep himself from passing out.
He's quit worrying about the denaturing of the wiper fluid. If it kills him, it kills him. If he didn't drink it, he'd die anyway. Besides, he's pretty sure that whatever substance they denature the fluid with is just designed to make you sick: their way of keeping winos from buying cheap wiper fluid for the ethanol content. He can handle throwing up if it comes to that.
He walks. He walks in the hot, dry, windless desert. Sand, rocks, hills, dunes, the occasional scrawny cactus or dried bush. No sign of water. Sometimes he'll see a little movement to one side or the other, but whatever moved is usually gone before he can focus his eyes on it. Probably birds, lizards, or mice. Maybe snakes, though they usually move more at night. He's careful to stay away from the movements.
After a while, he begins to stagger. He's not sure if it's fatigue, heat stroke finally catching him, or maybe he was wrong and the denaturing of the wiper fluid was worse than he thought. He tries to steady himself and keep going.
After more walking, he comes to a large stretch of sand. This is good! He knows he passed over a stretch of sand in the SUV - he remembers doing donuts in it, or at least he thinks he remembers it; he's getting woozy enough and tired enough that he's not sure what he remembers anymore or if he's hallucinating. He thinks he remembers it, so he heads off into it, trying to get to the other side, hoping that it gets him closer to the town.
He was heading for a town, wasn't he? He thinks he was. He isn't sure anymore. He's not even sure how long he's been walking anymore. Is it still morning? Has it moved into afternoon, and the sun is going down again? It must be afternoon; it seems like it's been too long since he started out.
He walks through the sand.
After a while, he comes to a big dune in the sand. This is bad. He doesn't remember any dunes from when he was driving over the sand in his SUV. At least he doesn't think he remembers any. This is bad.
All the same, he has no other direction to go. Too late to turn back now. He figures that he'll get to the top of the dune and see if he can see anything from there that can help him find the town. He keeps going up the dune.
Halfway up, he slips in the bad footing of the sand for the second or third time and falls to his knees. He doesn't feel like getting back up, since he'll just fall down again. He keeps going up the dune on his hand and knees.
While crawling, if his throat weren't so dry, he'd laugh. He's finally gotten to the hackneyed image of a man lost in the desert, crawling through the sand on his hands and knees. It would be the perfect image, he imagines, if only his clothes were more ragged. The people crawling through the desert in the cartoons always had ragged clothes, but his have lasted without any rips so far. Somebody will probably find his dessicated corpse half buried in the sand years from now, and his clothes will still be in fine shape - shake the sand out, give them a good wash, and they'd be wearable again. He wishes his throat were wet enough to laugh. He coughs a little instead, and it hurts.
He finally makes it to the top of the sand dune. Now that he's at the top, he struggles a little, but manages to stand up and look around. All he sees is sand. Sand and more sand. Behind him, about a mile away, he thinks he sees the rocky ground he left to head into this sand. Ahead of him, more dunes, more sand. This isn't where he drove his SUV. This is Hell. Or close enough.
Again, he doesn't know what to do. He decides to drink the rest of the wiper fluid while figuring it out. He takes out the bottle and starts removing the cap when he glances to the side and sees something. Something in the sand. At the bottom of the dune, off to the side, he sees something strange. It's a flat area, in the sand. He stops opening the bottle and tries to look closer. The area seems to be circular, and it's dark: darker than the sand, and there seems to be something in the middle of it, but he can't tell what it is, so he looks as hard as he can but still can't tell from here. He's going to have to go down there and look.
He puts the bottle back into his pocket, and starts to stumble down the dune. After a few steps, he realizes that he's in trouble; he's not going to be able to keep his balance. After a couple more sliding, tottering steps, he falls and starts to roll down the dune. The sand it so hot that he thinks he's caught fire on the way down - like a movie car wreck flashing into flames as it goes over the cliff, before it ever even hits the ground. He closes his eyes and mouth, covers his face with his hands, and waits to stop rolling.
He stops at the bottom of the dune. After a minute or two, he finds enough energy to try to sit up and get the sand out of his face and clothes. When he clears his eyes enough, he looks around to make sure that the dark spot in the sand it still there and he hadn't just imagined it.
Seeing the large, flat, dark spot on the sand still there, he crawls towards it. He'd get up and walk towards it, but he doesn't seem to have the energy to get up and walk right now. He must be in the final stages of dehydration he figures as he crawls. If this place in the sand doesn't have water, he'll likely never make it anywhere else. This is his last chance.
He gets closer and closer, but still can't see what's in the middle of the dark area. It’s hard to focus, and lifting his head up to look takes so much effort that he gives up trying. He just keeps crawling.
Finally, he reaches the area he'd seen from the dune. It takes him a minute of crawling on it before he realizes that he's no longer on sand - he's now crawling on some kind of dark stone. Stone with some kind of marking on it - a pattern cut into the stone. He's too tired to stand up and try to see what the pattern is, so he just keeps crawling. He crawls towards the center where his blurry eyes still see something in the middle of the dark stone area.
His mind, detached in a strange way, notes that either his hands and knees are so burnt by the sand that they no longer feel pain, or that this dark stone, in the middle of a burning desert with a pounding, punishing sun overhead, doesn't seem to be hot. It almost feels cool. He considers lying down on the nice cool surface.
Cool, dark stone. Not a good sign. He must be hallucinating this. He's probably in the middle of a patch of sand, already lying face down and dying, and just imagining this whole thing. A desert mirage. Soon the beautiful women carrying pitchers of water will come up and start giving him a drink. Then he'll know he's gone.
He decides against laying down on the cool stone. If he's going to die here in the middle of this hallucination, he at least wants to see what's in the center before he goes. He keeps crawling.
It's the third time that he hears the voice before he realizes what he's hearing. He would swear that someone just said, "Greetings, traveler. You do not look well. Do you hear me?"
He stops crawling. He tries to look up from where he is on his hands and knees, but it's too much effort to lift his head. So he tries something different: he rolls over and leans back trying to sit up on the stone. After a few seconds, he catches his balance, avoids falling on his face, sits up, and tries to focus his eyes. Blurry. He rubs his eyes with the back of his hands and tries again. Better this time.
Yep. He can see. He's sitting in the middle of a large, flat, dark expanse of stone. Directly next to him, about three feet away, is a white post or pole about two inches in diameter and sticking about four or five feet out of the stone, at an angle.
And wrapped around this white rod is what must be a fifteen foot long desert diamondback rattlesnake, with a hovering tail and rattle seemingly prepared to start rattling, looking directly at him.
He stares at the snake in shock. He doesn't have the energy to get up and run away. He doesn't even have the energy to crawl away. This is it: his final resting place. No matter what happens, he's not going to be able to move from this spot.
Well, at least dying from a bite from this monster should be quicker than dying of thirst. He'll face his end like a man. He struggles to sit up a little straighter. The snake keeps watching him. He lifts one hand and flicks it in the snake's direction, feebly. The snake watches the hand for a moment, then goes back to watching the man, looking into his eyes.
Hmmm. Maybe the snake has no interest in biting him. It hasn't rattled yet - that’s a good sign. Maybe he isn't going to die of snake bite after all.
He then remembers that he'd looked up when he'd reached the center here because he thought he'd heard a voice. He is still very woozy; he feels like he might pass out soon. The sun still beats down on him even though he is now on cool stone. He still doesn't have anything to drink. Although maybe he had actually heard a voice. This stone doesn't look natural. Nor does that white post sticking up out of the stone. Someone must have built this. Maybe they are still nearby. Maybe that was who talked to him. Maybe this snake is even their pet, and that's why it isn't biting.
He tries to clear his throat to say, "Hello," but he’s too dry. All that comes out is a coughing or wheezing sound. There's no way he's going to be able to talk without something to drink. He feels his pocket, and the bottle with the wiper fluid is still there. He shakily pulls out the bottle, almost losing his balance and falling on his back in the process. This isn't good. He doesn't have much time left by his reckoning before he passes out.
He gets the bottle open, manages to get the bottle to his lips, and pours some of the fluid into his mouth. He sloshes it around, and then swallows it. He coughs a little. His throat feels better. Maybe he can talk now.
He tries again. Ignoring the snake, he turns to look around him, hoping to spot the owner of this place, and croaks out, "Hello? Is there anyone here?"
He hears, from his side, "Greetings. What is it that you want?"
He turns his head back towards the snake. That's where the sound seemed to come from. The only thing he can think of is that there must be a speaker hidden under the snake, or maybe built into that post. He decides to try asking for help.
"Please," he croaks again, suddenly feeling dizzy, "I'd love to not be thirsty anymore. I've been without water for a long time. Can you help me?"
Looking in the direction of the snake, hoping to see where the voice was coming from this time, he is shocked to see the snake rear back, open its mouth, and speak. He hears it say, as the dizziness overtakes him and he falls forward, face first on the stone, "Very well. Coming up."
A piercing pain shoots through his shoulder. Suddenly he is awake. He sits up and grabs his shoulder, wincing at the throbbing pain. He's momentarily disoriented as he looks around, and then he remembers: the crawl across the sand, the dark area of stone, the snake. He sees the snake, still wrapped around the tilted white post, still looking at him.
He reaches up and feels his shoulder, where it hurts. It feels slightly wet. He pulls his fingers away and looks at them - blood. He feels his shoulder again - it feels like his shirt has two holes in it - two puncture holes. They match up with the two aching spots of pain on his shoulder. He has been bitten. By the snake.
"It'll feel better in a minute." He looks up - it's the snake talking. He hadn't dreamed it. Suddenly he notices - he's not dizzy anymore. And more importantly, he's not thirsty anymore - at all!
"Have I died? Is this the afterlife? Why are you biting me in the afterlife?"
"Sorry about that, but I had to bite you," says the snake. "That's the way I work. It all comes through the bite. Think of it as natural medicine."
"You bit me to help me? Why aren't I thirsty anymore? Did you give me a drink before you bit me? How did I drink enough while unconscious to not be thirsty anymore? I haven't had a drink for over two days. Well, except for the windshield wiper fluid... hold it, how in the world does a snake talk? Are you real? Are you some sort of Disney animation?"
"No," says the snake, "I'm real. As real as you or anyone is, anyway. I didn't give you a drink. I bit you. That's how it works, it's what I do. I bite. Plus I don't have hands to give you a drink, even if I had water just sitting around here."
The man sat stunned for a minute. Here he was, sitting in the middle of the desert on some strange stone that should be hot but wasn't, talking to a snake that could talk back and had just bitten him. And he felt better. Not great - he was still starving and exhausted, but much better - he was no longer thirsty. He had started to sweat again, but only slightly. He felt hot, in this sun, but it was starting to get lower in the sky, and the cool stone beneath him was a relief he could notice now that he was no longer dying of thirst.
"I might suggest that we take care of that methanol you now have in your system with the next request," continued the snake. "I can guess why you drank it, but I'm not sure how much you drank, or how much methanol was left in the wiper fluid. That stuff is nasty. It'll make you go blind in a day or two, if you drank enough of it."
"Ummm, n-next request?" said the man. He put his hand back on his hurting shoulder and backed away from the snake a little.
"That's the way it works. If you like, that is," explained the snake. "You get three requests. Call them wishes, if you wish." The snake grinned at his own joke, and the man drew back a little further from the show of fangs.
"But there are rules," the snake continued. "The first request is free. The second requires an agreement of secrecy. The third requires the binding of responsibility." The snake looks at the man seriously.
"By the way," the snake says suddenly, "my name is Nathan. Old Nathan, Samuel used to call me. He gave me the name. Before that, most of the Bound used to just call me 'Snake'. But that got old, and Samuel wouldn't stand for it. He said that anything that could talk needed a name. He was big into names. You can call me Nate, if you wish." Again, the snake grinned. "Sorry if I don't offer to shake, but I think you can understand - my shake sounds somewhat threatening." The snake give his rattle a little shake.
"Umm, my name is Jack," said the man, trying to absorb all of this. "Jack Samson."
"Can I ask you a question?" Jack says suddenly. "What happened to the venom...umm, in your bite. Why aren't I dying now? How did you do that? What do you mean by that's how you work?"
"That's more than one question," grins Nate. "But I'll still try to answer all of them. First, yes, you can ask me a question." The snake's grin gets wider. "Second, the venom is in you. It changed you. You now no longer need to drink. That's what you asked for. Or, well, technically, you asked to not be thirsty any more - but 'any more' is such a vague term. I decided to make it permanent - now, as long as you live, you shouldn't need to drink much at all. Your body will conserve water very efficiently. You should be able to get enough just from the food you eat - much like a creature of the desert. You've been changed.
"For the third question," Nate continues, "you are still dying. Besides the effects of that methanol in your system, you're a man - and men are mortal. In your current state, I give you no more than about another 50 years. Assuming you get out of this desert, alive, that is." Nate seemed vastly amused at his own humor, and continued his wide grin.
"As for the fourth question," Nate said, looking more serious as far as Jack could tell, as Jack was just now working on his ability to read talking-snake emotions from snake facial features, "first you have to agree to make a second request and become bound by the secrecy, or I can't tell you."
"Wait," joked Jack, "isn't this where you say you could tell me, but you'd have to kill me?"
"I thought that was implied." Nate continued to look serious.
"Ummm...yeah." Jack leaned back a little as he remembered again that he was talking to a fifteen foot venomous reptile with a reputation for having a nasty temper. "So, what is this 'Bound by Secrecy' stuff, and can you really stop the effects of the methanol?" Jack thought for a second. "And, what do you mean methanol, anyway? I thought these days they use ethanol in wiper fluid, and just denature it?"
"They may, I don't really know," said Nate. "I haven't gotten out in a while. Maybe they do. All I know is that I smell methanol on your breath and on that bottle in your pocket. And the blue color of the liquid when you pulled it out to drink some let me guess that it was wiper fluid. I assume that they still color wiper fluid blue?"
"Yeah, they do," said Jack.
"I figured," replied Nate. "As for being bound by secrecy - with the fulfillment of your next request, you will be bound to say nothing about me, this place, or any of the information I will tell you after that, when you decide to go back out to your kind. You won't be allowed to talk about me, write about me, use sign language, charades, or even act in a way that will lead someone to guess correctly about me. You'll be bound to secrecy. Of course, I'll also ask you to promise not to give me away, and as I'm guessing that you're a man of your word, you'll never test the binding anyway, so you won't notice." Nate said the last part with utter confidence.
Jack, who had always prided himself on being a man of his word, felt a little nervous at this. "Ummm, hey, Nate, who are you? How did you know that? Are you, umm, omniscient, or something?"
Well, Jack," said Nate sadly, "I can't tell you that, unless you make the second request." Nate looked away for a minute, then looked back.
"Umm, well, ok," said Jack, "what is this about a second request? What can I ask for? Are you allowed to tell me that?"
"Sure!" said Nate, brightening. "You're allowed to ask for changes. Changes to yourself. They're like wishes, but they can only affect you. Oh, and before you ask, I can't give you immortality. Or omniscience. Or omnipresence, for that matter. Though I might be able to make you gaseous and yet remain alive, and then you could spread through the atmosphere and sort of be omnipresent. But what good would that be - you still wouldn't be omniscient and thus still could only focus on one thing at a time. Not very useful, at least in my opinion." Nate stopped when he realized that Jack was staring at him.
"Well, anyway," continued Nate, "I'd probably suggest giving you permanent good health. It would negate the methanol now in your system, you'd be immune to most poisons and diseases, and you'd tend to live a very long time, barring accident, of course. And you'll even have a tendency to recover from accidents well. It always seemed like a good choice for a request to me."
"Cure the methanol poisoning, huh?" said Jack. "And keep me healthy for a long time? Hmmm. It doesn't sound bad at that. And it has to be a request about a change to me? I can't ask to be rich, right? Because that's not really a change to me?"
"Right," nodded Nate.
"Could I ask to be a genius and permanently healthy?" Jack asked, hopefully.
"That takes two requests, Jack."
"Yeah, I figured so," said Jack. "But I could ask to be a genius? I could become the smartest scientist in the world? Or the best athlete?"
"Well, I could make you very smart," admitted Nate, "but that wouldn't necessarily make you the best scientist in the world. Or, I could make you very athletic, but it wouldn't necessarily make you the best athlete either. You've heard the saying that 99% of genius is hard work? Well, there's some truth to that. I can give you the talent, but I can't make you work hard. It all depends on what you decide to do with it."
"Hmmm," said Jack. "Ok, I think I understand. And I get a third request, after this one?"
"Maybe," said Nate, "it depends on what you decide then. There are more rules for the third request that I can only tell you about after the second request. You know how it goes." Nate looked like he'd shrug, if he had shoulders.
"Ok, well, since I'd rather not be blind in a day or two, and permanent health doesn't sound bad, then consider that my second request. Officially. Do I need to sign in blood or something?"
"No," said Nate. "Just hold out your hand. Or heel." Nate grinned. "Or whatever part you want me to bite. I have to bite you again. Like I said, that's how it works - the venom, you know," Nate said apologetically.
Jack winced a little and felt his shoulder, where the last bite was. Hey, it didn't hurt any more. Just like Nate had said. That made Jack feel better about the biting business. But still, standing still while a fifteen foot snake sunk it's fangs into you. Jack stood up. Ignoring how good it felt to be able to stand again, and the hunger starting to gnaw at his stomach, Jack tried to decide where he wanted to get bitten. Despite knowing that it wouldn't hurt for long, Jack knew that this wasn't going to be easy.
"Hey, Jack," Nate suddenly said, looking past Jack towards the dunes behind him, "is that someone else coming up over there?"
Jack spun around and looked. Who else could be out here in the middle of nowhere? And did they bring food?
Wait a minute, there was nobody over there. What was Nate...
Jack let out a bellow as he felt two fangs sink into his rear end, through his jeans...
Jack sat down carefully, favoring his more tender buttock. "I would have decided, eventually, Nate. I was just thinking about it. You didn't have to hoodwink me like that."
"I've been doing this a long time, Jack," said Nate, confidently. "You humans have a hard time sitting still and letting a snake bite you - especially one my size. And besides, admit it - it's only been a couple of minutes and it already doesn't hurt any more, does it? That's because of the health benefit with this one.

2023.05.28 04:48 WritingSweetroll Our Troubled Youths - Part 1 (Official Remake)

[AN]- This is the official remake of my series, "Our Troubled Youths". I was young and kind of a virgin when it came to writing lol. But, I've grown a lot in my writing, and I wanted to truly give this series a better story, and the better characters it deserves. So please enjoy!

“Slow down-” AJ huffed, chasing after Willow. She ran fast through the thick woods of Virginia, one goal in mind. It was very early in the morning- but Willow was determined that she would bring some food back home, and not just some small rabbit– but a deer. Ruby told her that deer were active at dusk and dawn, so she’d have to choose one of those times for the best results. In order for her to get around Clementine knowing, she’d have to sneak out at dawn. Willow ignored AJ, she had made a shot at a big, juicy deer. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a clean shot so the deer immediately fled. But that didn’t stop the fire in her veins, she was determined to feed her family, but mainly, she was determined to prove herself.
AJ huffed in irritation. He mentally cursed at himself, realizing this was his karma for acting this exact way when he was Willow’s age. AJ stopped running, walking instead now. She was in good vision, and it seemed she’d slow down as well. Besides, he needed to catch his breath.
Willow stopped, looking around for the deer. The blood trail confused her as it ran in circles. She calmed herself down. Tracing the trail closely, she was slowly gathering a possibility to where the deer had gone. Her vision was so focused on the floor that she didn’t realize where she was walking– and then all of a sudden she had felt herself slipping. “Ah!” She yelped, rolling down a steep hill with rocks and stumps- the pain caused her to shout in agony.
AJ was quick to action, “Willow!” He called out, running on pure adrenaline.
Willow finally fell onto the floor, deeper into the forest. Everything was blurry, but she could see she fell from a pretty high ledge. She shook her head trying to regain consciousness, everything hurt. After about a second, she tried to get up- “A-ah-” She stumbled, sitting back onto the floor. “Shit.” She whimpered from the pain of her ankle, it was definitely sprained, hopefully only sprained. But that seemed like the least of her issues. Her heart dropped as she heard the all familiar groaning. She looked up to see dozens of walkers coming over to her. It seems the commotion of her screams had gathered a lot of unwanted attention. “N-no.. no!” She tried to force herself up, she only successfully made it halfway before she fell down again.
AJ made it to the cliff's edge, looking down at Willow. “Shit! Willow!” He started to slowly make his way onto the steep ledge, he planned on sliding down gradually. “I’m coming!” he shouted.
Willow had a brief relief as she heard AJ’s call. So, her mind cleared for a moment, and she went into defense mode. “Damnit!” She complained, seeing that her bow was nowhere to be found, so she slid as far back as she could. With her back against an oak tree, she pulled out her knife and held it near her chest. “AJ…Please hurry!” She shouted, the walkers were getting closer and closer…to now where she was realizing how immobile and defenseless she really was. Panic rushed in quickly, and her mind went straight to insulting herself. If only she’d listen to her mothers warnings, if only she wasn’t so stubborn–
Her thoughts cut short as a walker fell onto the floor, grasping at her shoes, inching closer to bite her. “Ah!” She shouted, taken aback. She’d never been this close to a walker before, and she’d never feared for her life this badly.
“Willow!” AJ screamed with a fury. He held up his own bow and arrow- and shot the walker before it could hurt her. He quickened his pace down the hill, he was close to the bottom already so it wasn’t a safety issue to do so. He finally got to her, and immediately scooped her up in his arms. Willow kept her defensive stance, even in the safety of his arms. It wasn’t until a few minutes later, when she held her knife in front of her face. The knife was clean. No blood on it at all. She let the knife rest against her chest. She cried, and threw her hands over her face to cover said tears. Her knife being clean meant she didn’t even try to kill the walker on her, she would’ve died if it wasn’t for AJ.

Willow sat silent in the medical room. It used to be a dorm for some kids years ago- back when people actually were alive before the apocalypse. Sometimes she’d wonder what it was like for them. Must’ve been a lot better. She focused on some ripped medical pages that were hung on the wall. Ruby really wanted it to feel like a ‘real doctors office.’
The silence was then interrupted by Ruby coming into the office. She held fresh bandages in her hand, and some saline. It was homemade saline ofcourse, just salt and clean water. In the other hand, she held a hot drink.
“Hey there.” She said softly, she placed the items on the desk. “This is some ginger tea.” Ruby gave her the hot tea, “Ain’t as good as tylenol, but it's something.” She then went onto her knees, lifting up Willow's ankle gently. Willow sucked in her breath as the pain stung her. “I know..I know.”
Willow sighed, placing the cup in her lap. She held it tightly, letting the warmth surround her finger tips. “So. How bad is it?”
Ruby gently wrapped her foot in the gauze, “Well. It’s not broken so that's good. You just need to not move on it so much- let it heal. You had a pretty nasty fall.”
Willow nodded. “I mean, how bad is it?” Willow bit her lip, “With mom?”
“Well….” Ruby grunted getting up, dusting her hands. “I mean, I'm not gonna sugar coat it. Even Louis is mad. And you know it takes a storm to upset that goofball.”
Willow gulped. If her dad was mad, her mom was furious.
“AJ’s taking the brunt of it. She’s letting him have it.” She sighed, placing her hands on her hips and shaking her head. “But that doesn't mean you're safe.”
Willow started to bounce her leg anxiously. There was no doubt that she would be getting her ear chewed out. “Ok.” She said, accepting her fate.
“I’ll let her know you’re ready to be seen.” Ruby started walking away, but turned around half-way. “It’ll be alright. As scary as Clementine is sometimes, she still loves you to death. It's the reason why she’s so passionate.” She then exited the room, leaving Willow to soak in her thoughts.
Willow allowed the silence to engulf her. This was the only peace she’ll be getting before a fighting match of emotions. She grumbled to herself, thinking, ‘Why didn’t you just pay more attention? If only then we could have been feasting on a deer.’ She sighed heavily, and fell back onto the springy mattress. Interestingly enough, she felt a brief happiness along her chest. Memories from when she was a toddler had come up. There isn’t much entertainment in the apocalypse- but her dad sure found out ways. Example being, he would throw her onto the spring mattress and she’d fly into the air. He would catch her again and repeat the process. Willow being 15 couldn’t experience that again, she was just too big. But still, the memories were always welcome to come back.
Suddenly, those feelings of joy were quickly swept away as the door was heard being open. She sucked in her breath as she braced herself. Louis and Clementine walked in- obviously not happy. Clementine leaned against the pole on the other bunk bed across from her. Louis just sat down, looking more disappointed than angry.
“Get up.”
Shivers. Her voice was stern and harsh. It could even scare a walker. Willow sat up, met with the eyes of a very upset mother. But to Willow's surprise, her eyes were glistening and wet. She was holding back tears with all her strength. It made Willow feel even more guilty.
“Willow, what are the rules?”
“I know. I get it, but–”
Clementine chuckled, “Apparently you don't get them. Repeat them. Now.”
Willow sighed, looking at the floor. With an attitude, she replied, “Which ones?”
Clementine replied with a judgy expression, “Excuse me?”
“You have a rule for everything I want to do–”
“The rules we follow when going into new places, or new experiences.” She emphasized her last two words, biting back at her daughter's sass.
Willow swallowed, her mothers tone wasn’t lighting up. She decided to cut the bullshit and truly answer. “We listen for monsters–” Only the first rule, and it bit at her ego; She didn’t even think about the walkers stupidly enough. It seemed her shock was shown through her expression– because Clementine looked at her with a small relief. A relief that she actually learned from her mistake- rather than being stubborn about it. “-and..we always find a way out.” Willow finished in almost a shamed whisper.
The room was silent now. Surprisingly, Louis was the one to break the silence. He clapped and whispered in an awkward tone, “Hooray! You figured it out!” Obviously trying to lighten up the mood, something he always tried to do.
Clementine turned around slowly, looking at her partner of 23 years, with the disgust of a stranger. She sighed and placed a palm on her forehead. Willow couldn’t help but chuckle at this. Her chuckles only started a domino effect of chuckles. And just like that, the family came together again. Regardless of how much fear she had of her mothers anger– she never felt unsafe or unloved.
The laughs ended, and it was serious again. Clementine sighed, coming over to Willows bed, and sitting on it. Louis followed, sitting next to her as well. “Willow.” She spoke softly. “I don’t make all these rules to dim your light or passion. I just want you to be safe.”
“But you went through so many different eras of yourself.” Willow looked down at her hands, interlocking them. “What if I never get to see the other sides of me?”
Clementine sighed. “We went over this Willow. I can’t let you experience even a fraction of what I went through. Times are different, we got food, water– hell even generators!”
“I know mom. I do. I’m grateful- I really am. But it's still not perfect. You can’t shelter me forever. Things…don’t always go to plan.”
Clementine stared at the floor for a bit. “I know.” She finally responded. “--And I know experience is what you need. Just, don't be looking up to younger me as no role model. She was of the past, this is the present.”
“But you were badass-”
“No. I was surviving. You can’t look at my past and think that way, okay?” It got silent again. “There’s nothing badass about the nightmares you wake up to every morning.” She whispered.
Louis got up and then decided to squeeze himself in between the two. He widened his arms and hugged both of them. He gave Clementine a tighter hug, knowing that her mind was probably racing at the thought of her nightmares. She hadn’t had them in so long. He kissed both his lover's head, and his daughter's head. “Listen. Just promise us that you’ll tell us when you want to go hunting or scavenging. And…” He looked at Clementine and said, “And, maybe we’ll think about letting you go out on your own.” Clementine raised her brows at this, but decided to let it go for right now. She was exhausted mentally.
Willows eyes lit, she smiled. “Alright then.” She replied with glee.
“Alright let's get out of here, hospitals give me the heebie jeebies.” Louis stood up, ushering Clementine to stand up as well. Willow followed, only to immediately shout a scream of pain. Louis sucked in his breath. “That’ll teach ya for sure heh.” He then swooped Willow up, carrying her out of the room, with his lover by his side.

2023.05.28 04:47 PhilledZone "Load in Backgrouind" error when trying to upload an avatar

Hey everyone, so I need help with something.
I wanted to update my avatar, but when I opened the builder it just gave me the following error:

When I click on the select button to resolve this error, I get every sound source on my avatar selected, but there is nothing on them that could change the outcome of this error.
I have been searching around a bit to see why this could occur, but I only found a post of someone using the wrong Unity version. Now, I am using the correct version, I went in to double check that too. At least the official docs say that it's currently 2019.4.31f1, which I am using. From what I got they did want to update to a newer version, but haven't done so yet. I also recently updated the SDK Base and Avatar packages to version 3.2.0. The only other packages I added, besides from the default ones, are the most recent versions of Gesture Manager (ver. 3.8.4) and Avatars 3.0 Manager (ver. 2.0.20). Maybe it's an issue with one of the versions or one of the extra packages?
Help would be very much appreciated!
Thanks to everyone in advance!

2023.05.28 04:46 JamesIsHere_from_YT I can't find any entry level jobs within walking distance near my house or any online jobs on my schedule. Am I not searching correctly?

I'm 16 and on summer vacation and I am looking for a job. The 2 types of jobs I'm looking for is either a full time job for the last 4 weeks of summer or a 2 day a week full time schedule, NOT on weekends, and the job either has to be online or within 3 miles of my house so I can get there by foot since I don't have a car or bike. And of course, I'm in high school, which means it has to be something with no experience required and entry level. It can be almost ANYTHING, from a cashier or waiter to a reddit moderator or video game tester. I already asked on another subreddit, and apparently a 2 day a week job is a thing. I haven't asked yet, but I HOPE a one month job is a thing too.
But the only thing I've done to search for jobs is go online and go to sites like Indeed and look for jobs without experience, in my zip code, etc. and I get literaly no results with exactly what I need. Usually I find 3 and they all have a problem, like it's only 18+, it's too far from me, or something else that somehow got through the filter. I don't know where to go to just find entry level jobs near me. Within 3 miles of my house, there's not a lot but still a variety of places. There's 2 strip malls, a gas station, a CVS, and even a few other places like a community library that I'm sure could hire someone. And the online job part is REALLY confusing.
So what should I be doing to find jobs? Do I need to go to a different website? Do I just go up to these places and ask if they're hriing? Is it actually complicated? Do I have to find a certain app? Is it more or less complicated than I'm making it? And what about the online job idea? I have a lot of questions and it's really stressing my out how something that should be so simple is difficult for me. My summer has started and I plan on working in a few days, so I hope I can get some advice and help soon. I know this was a lot of info I put in this post, but I hope I can get some advice.

2023.05.28 04:45 Several_Ad_8086 Monster Hunter Custom Archetype Ideas

So I haven’t played yugioh in a while but I always liked making custom themed archetypes in my head and recently I’ve really gotten into Monster Hunter World. Literally last night the thought of a monster hunter archetype popped in my head so I just wrote up a bunch of cards that I think would be cool. I tried to base them all on their unique things like nergi growing spikes and using them as armor and also attacks or how rolling can get rid of Fireblight etc. Idk if anyone will care or if they’re good but I liked thinking of them anyway lol. Revolves around special summoning lil bois to get big bois
p.s. My bad if my psct isn't that good but i think the cards are at least legible lol, open to criticism.

2023.05.28 04:44 autotldr Ancient tombs and mummification workshops unearthed in Egypt

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 24%. (I'm a bot)
The workshops and tombs date back to the 30th pharaonic dynasty and to the Ptolemaic period, he said.
Five beds made out of stone were discovered still standing inside the room, which would have been used to mummify the most sacred animals.
One of the tombs belonged to "Ne Hesut Ba," who was the head of scribes and the priest of Horus and Maat during the the fifth dynasty in around 2400 B.C., Sabri Farag, head of the Saqqara archaeological site, said in a separate news release.
The second tomb belonged to a Qadish priest named "Men Kheber" from the 18th dynasty, he said.
Old Kingdom tombs for humans were discovered painted with the names of the dead and their wives.
Inside the New Kingdom tombs, which date back to the 1500s B.C., alabaster statues of the tombs' owners were discovered still intact inside, with hieroglyphic text in blue.

2023.05.28 04:44 GrimJesta So We Started

So We Started

So we started Black Sword Hack at work today. Our CY_BORG game is on hold as a lot of the kids went home for the holiday weekend (it's a mental health residential/IOP facility), so we decided to do a two-shot Black Sword Hack game.
You know, reading this book I really liked the game. But actually running it? I'm absolutely in love with it. The classless, "feat-based" character generation, the dangerous demonic pacts and trafficking with spirits, the nasty Doom Die, all of it plays out so well. This game really emulates the grim, doomed-hero style of sword and sorcery we get from Elric of Melinbone, Conan of Cimmeria, and Fafhrd and Gray Mouser, and best of all, the nature of how the rolls work (and the maneuvers you can pull off using the Doom Die) really got the kids into it. Several of the kids have a really hard time connecting with the world, so they took a risk today and played the game (only one of the players was a regular; the rest were new and looking to try the therapeutic gaming group). It was amazing seeing them come out of their shells and really connect through a game.
Hats off the Black Sword Hack. It really is a fantastic little game.

2023.05.28 04:44 GrungyAltyBoy10 I'm back once more.

This is easily my favorite listening experience out the now 3 post I've done on this sub. Some of my favorite songs so far throughout the discography land on this post. You can probably guess most of them, but I found some very interesting tracks that I never heard of. From the very first listen to the first album I'll review here on the post, I've seen a big spark of creativity the band has never shown until that point. Sadly, this is by most fans and critics opinions their highest point of their careers. I'm not disrespecting any futures releases and already putting them down before I even listen to them but that's what it seems to be like. But I'm still genuinely excited for the next to come. Now, it's time to hear my takes from these 4 albums. Just remember that I only gave one listen per album so my ratings will definitely change overtime.
Summer Days (And Summer Nights!!): 8.3/10
FAVORITE SONGS: Girl Don’t Tell Me (9/10), California Girls (9/10), Then I Kissed Her (8.5/10), Help Me, Rhonda (8.5/10), You’re So Good to Me (8/10)
LEAST FAVORITE SONGS: Summer Means New Love (5.5/10), Amusement Parks U.S.A (6/10), And Your Dreams Come True (6.5/10)

Beach Boys' Party!: 5.5/10
FAVORITE SONGS: Barbara Ann (8.5/10), You’ve Got to Hide Away Your Love (7/10), Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow, Hully Gully
LEAST FAVORITE SONGS: Medley: I Get Around/Little Deuce Coupe (4/10), Mountain of Love (4/10), I Should Have Known Better (4/10)

Pet Sounds: 9.4/10
FAVORITE SONGS: Wouldn’t It Be Nice (10/10), I Know There’s an Answer (10/10), God Only Knows (10/10), Sloop John B (9.5/10), Caroline, No (9/10)
LEAST FAVORITE SONG: That’s Not Me (7.5/10)

Smiley Smile: 8.4/10
FAVORITE SONGS: Good Vibrations (10/10), Vegetables (9/10), Wind Chimes (9/10), With Me Tonight (9/10)
LEAST FAVORITE SONGS: Wonderful (5/10), Whistle In (5.5/10), She’s Goin’ Bald (5.5/10), Gettin’ Hungry (6/10)

If you have anything to say, I would love to know!
I know there's been a single released during this time and a couple of bonus tracks off of Smiley Smile and I've reviewed them so if you wanna know the scores just ask.
I've also made a playlist and started tomorrow I'll be listening to it almost daily.
Thanks to the people who has been giving their time to say their opinions as well. I thought these posts wouldn't be well liked by this community. Y'all are genuinely one of the friendliest music subs I've ever came across and I'm thankful for that!

2023.05.28 04:43 FroztyPenguin Vaginoplasty Day 6 Live Experience

Buckle in, today's blow-by-blow vaginoplasty update is long one.
I woke up early because I was excited to get the packing out. As I’m healing up and feeling better, I’m becoming more and more aware of the packing and it is uncomfortable! It’s a difficult feeling to describe, it’s just like internal pressure. It’s more painful when I stand.
The doctor came by and pulled out the catheter and the packing. The removal of the catheter felt weird, but it only took a split second for him to pull it out.
The removal of the packing went like this: he pulled off the hospital mesh panties and all the pads that were around the outside. Then he looked for the packing around my clitoris but I guess it had fallen out already. Then he reached up and the tail of the packing which is just like a gauze ribbon was sticking out of the vagina. He pulled on that and an unbelievable length of that gauze ribbon just unfurled. It was like a magician pulling handkerchiefs out of a sleeve. There were a couple of times that the packing had sort of adhered to the vaginal wall and he just pulled lightly and consistently until it came free and kept going. It smelled kind of weird (like iodine maybe?). When the packing was all pulled out, he looked for the gauze around my clitoris again but it was gone. He waited for a second to see if any of those stuck spots would cause any additional bleeding, in which case he’d just have to insert some gauze and his fingers and hold it in place for a second, but it didn’t so he didn’t.
I was scared to look at the vagina, because I thought it would be a total gore fest and I wanted to be excited about it not disgusted by it. I did look at it with a little hand mirror and was pleasantly surprised. It looked like a vagina, albeit a very swollen and bruised vagina. I couldn’t see the clitoris or the labia minora because it was so swollen, but I’m assured that they are in fact there.
No sooner did I put on new panties with a pad then I was ready to poop, as the nurse had predicted. I walked to the bathroom which was much easier now that the packing was gone and pooped. Because it was a pretty dense poop from days of not pooping, I instantly clogged the toilet. Somewhat embarrassing, but this is the real experience and everyone in the hospital has dealt with much worse than a little bit of my poop.
I wiped front to back as instructed by the occupational therapist, but my spouse (cis woman) got on my case and informed me that it isn’t enough to wipe front to back, you also need to make sure that the wipe is either folded so that there is a fresh area or get a new wipe to prevent infection. In hindsight that seems obvious and makes sense, but I’m new to this and need really clear instructions. I’m not sure why I didn’t fold it or get a new one, since that’s what I used to do when I had a penis (you know, last week) but I think I was just stressed out by the newness of the situation and the discomfort of pooping without being able to actively make the effort of pooping and sitting on the toilet for that long.
I also peed a little but t was just a dribble, so it didn’t really count for my pee-so-that-I-can-be-discharged requirement.
I got back in bed, and this was the first time that I’d been up walking when my legs didn’t shake uncontrollably when I got back to bed. It was an encouraging sign and really did show that the removal of packing made a big difference.
OT came and set up the shower. He put a glove over my hand that still had the IV in it. The plastic donut pillow was set on the shower chair with a towel over it. I was allowed to let the water hit just above my vagina and then run over it. I loved getting to shower, I was feeling very gross after nearly a week without a shower. I bled onto that towel a little bit, but only a smidge. I patted the vagina dry and I was able to actually towel off my upper body and hair. I dried while I was still sitting down, so I was able to dry my legs by just sort of lifting them up to where I could reach one at a time. OT showed me where to put bacitracin/neosporin on my groin, like between my legs and my labia majora. The incision was easy to see when I spread my legs and was more in the front rather than down under. It wasn’t as sore to spread my legs as I expected.
Then I put on loose PJ pants and a hoodie for my discharge outfit. It felt pretty great to wear pants. PT came and walked me all the way down the hallway and back, which was really unbelievable that I could go that far once the packing was out. I can’t even believe what a difference it made.
I drank so much water because I was so eager to go home that I peed like four times. Also, I pee a lot in my general life. I’m very hydrated.
Pharmacy came and gave me meds, the nurse took out my IV, Urology came through to let me ask any last questions and then I headed home. It felt weird that there wasn’t some more official “going home” stamp or announcement or something.
I have had a lot of euphoria today. I saw a camel toe in my panties. I can't stop smiling. I feel like I've got this. I can do it. I can recover and the recovery seems like it could be easier than I built it up in my head to be. The pain and discomfort of days one and two already feel like the distant past. I would do it again and make the same choice in a heartbeat.
I think this is it for my posts, because they were really just meant to fill in a gap of information that I noticed online, and I feel like I’ve seen people post about their dilation and at-home recovery experiences and the milestones they’ve hit once they’ve come home. I will post tomorrow about how I picked the program that I went to, because that’s been a frequent question from people here, but then I think that’s it from me.
Of course, as you’ve probably gotten to see, I’m an open book and I’m comfortable discussing everything, so if there are any other questions about any aspect of my transition (surgical or not) before I return to being a reddit lurker rather than an active participant, let me know.

2023.05.28 04:41 ReasonableSpring8187 If House Manderley had its own version of the Sea Snack

Lets look at the state of House Velaryon was in When Corlys started his carer they had a lot of prestige due to there connection to House Targaryen but lets at there economic state of House Velaryon they controlled a modest island with a few villages and there seat of Castle Driftmark was damp, often flooded and dark with salt stains.
Through his trading voyage Corlys turned all that around making the the Velaryon's the wealthiest house in the realm wealthier even than the Lannister. He built a new grander marble castle called Hightide and turned the villages of Driftmark into towns as he built new towns.
Lets look at House Manderly the wealthiest Stark vassals who control one of just five cites in the realm.
So lets say Wyman had a younger brother Sir William Manderley. On his fifth and tenth name day he tells his father that he will be six and ten in a year which in Westeros is legally a man and he has read about Corlys Velaryon and means to outdo him and fells that given the Manderly wealth he can do just that. He ask his father to build tweenty merchant ships.
  1. The Merrling King - flagship
  2. The Lord Edwly - after the Manderley's leggie Lord Edwyl Stark
  3. The King Aegon - as Aegon the fifth he died that same year, 259 A.C at Summerhall
  4. The Queen Betha - after the late Queen Betha Blackwood
  5. One after his Lord father. I don't know the name of Wyman and it this timeline Williams father.
  6. The White Harbour - some ships are just named after places.
  7. The Winterfell
  8. The Lady Marna - after Lady Marna Stark
  9. A ship after Sir Wilma's mother- name unknown
  10. The Lord Rickard - After the heir to the North
The next ten names keep in line more with personal taste than patriotism
  1. The Adventurer
  2. The Golden Maiden -
  3. The Trader
  4. The Merchant
  5. The Shark
  6. The Sea Knight
  7. The Beauty
  8. The Sapphire
  9. The Other Slayer- because Sir William likes reads a lot of history and mythology.
Over the years Sir William leads a number of trade voyages to the far east gaining vast wealth for House Manderley. His father the Lord of White Harbour funds the voyages and his brother Lord Wyman after him so the profits are theirs but Sir William gets a percentage.
However the profits are so great that over the years the Manderley taxes to Winterfell and Kingslanding ALONE are enough to make the Stark's and Targaryen's wealthier than the Lannister's. While the Manderlys are the wealthiest family west of the Bone Mountains a level of that has not existed outside Yi Ti scenes the fall or Valyria. White Harbour becomes the most opulent city west of the Bone Mountains even as all the poor in the Manderley lands are lifted out of poverty. People form all over the world flock to White Harbour making it larger than Lanistport but still smaller than Oldtown.
Now that the Stark's and Targaryen's are both wealthier than the Lannister's what do they do with all this gold and how dose this affect the rebellion?

2023.05.28 04:41 Real_Eyezz Correction to previous tinfoil - Jan 26 events- halfway to birth on Jun 15

Correction to previous tinfoil - Jan 26 events- halfway to birth on Jun 15
TLDR- Day of Cheng tweet 1/26 - 20 weeks - exactly half the total term of a pregnancy due on Jun 15 Gamestop's investor meeting. Cohen's form 3 with BBBY (initial ownership form filed on 8/15 to Jun 15 is full term of pregnancy 10 months). Was Jan 26 also the date on the court docs showing Cohen as an interested party or was that around Jan 18 or so?
On the 444 post with Pricewarehouse Coopers I commented and made a mistake about the 44 min from the Cheng tweet to the filing. But found something else interesting to me. I originally got it wrong here also in some spots https://www.reddit.com/beyond_uranus/comments/10mllhy/buck_bunny_game_released_ystdy_thur_126_at_around/
but I think I have it correct now. Protocol Gemini (Gamestop links) did tweet the Bed Bath celebratory emojis 44 min before the WSJ broke the story of raising funds on Feb 6, the day we ran to over 7 a share. Related to Hudson Bay Capital (where we still don't know the institutional investor they helped assist).
Now the way weeks and months are calculated here and in relation to pregnancy is bit strange since different months have different amounts of days.
From Cohen's 8 15 form 3 (initial ownership form)- is showing as 10 months exactly as well, but 43 weeks and 3 days, or 304 days.
Obviously if you double 140 days you get 280 weeks. So take from that what you will. But what is interesting to me is that the auction has been moved to Jun 14 , 1 day before GME's investor call.
The below is just graphic evidence and me checking my math
Jan 26 - 2 buck bunny tweets, Cheng 2023 and Beyond! tweet, and BBBY's late 10Q released (that had data running through Nov 26).
We even get A 420 . Nioce 4 months 20 days


Checking my math
Events of 1/26
  1. 1pm Gamestop NFT Buck
  2. 3:40 pm Cheng tweet 675 mil secured - "To 2023 and Beyond!"
  3. Second bunny tweet at 5pm , or 240 min apart from final event.
Entire number set
1 hr 30, 1 hr 10, 1 hr 20, 4 hr
or 90 min, 70 min, 120 min, 240 min
1 to 3 is also 2 hr 40 min or 180 min
2 hr 30 min 2 to 4 selection or 150 min

From Jan 26 to Jun 15
1:00 pm eastern Gamestop NFT, 1st Bunny tweet of the day

2:29 pm Bed Bath 10Q dropped

3:40 pm Cheng Volition capital tweet 675 mil dollars raised - "To 2023 and Beyond!" - 117 minutes or 1 hour 11 minutes later after 10Q drop
81 minutes later or 1 hr 20 minutes later
5:00 pm eastern -Gamestop NFT Bunny Game Drop 42k carrots beneath the sea. Blue crystals similar to Hope Diamond from Titanic. 42 carrots as 42 carats of the diamond? That is not close to the Hope Diamond carat count. We explored some theories in this post

2023.05.28 04:40 decorated-cobra PSA: No experience and/or struggling to find a casual or part time job that pays well?

I noticed I've been posting this under a few posts recently so thought I would do a bigger one to summarise everything. If you don't mind working with children, I would highly recommend becoming a swim teacher.
It also pays very well, as a 20+ year old casual employee where I work you would get $33/hr (at 19 it's about $30/hr and 18 around $26/hr I think). Some places pay more and some less.
Disclaimer: Getting the license is a process, so might take maybe 6-8 weeks, but if you aren't having any luck anywhere it is definitely worth it as it is a literally guaranteed job at the moment. You also need to be above 17 to officially start work (but you can do all the licensing stuff at the tail end of 16 if you want to work straight away when you're 17).
"Guaranteed job" might seem like an exaggeration, but it's not. For example, school swimming lessons (that all schools are required to do) have seen an unprecedented halving in duration recently solely due to teacher shortage. I work at 2 swim schools that are chomping at the bit for teachers and we virtually hire or train anyone that moves (in the last year, our interviews for people that are licensed have had a 100% offer rate).
For the process:
  1. do AUSTSWIM course and CPR course (either St John's or RLSSWA)
  2. get working with children check - do this early so you don't have to wait for it too long
  3. get police clearance (most jobs need this from my experience) - same as above
  4. do your practical hours for AUSTSWIM course by contacting any swim school near you and/or the department of education swimming lesson program.
  5. complete & submit paperwork
  6. receive license and apply to department of education or any local government near you. i have never worked at a private swim school but i assume they are also desperate.
It is particularly good for current or future uni students, non-professional parents looking to return to workforce, and anyone generally looking for casual or part time employment.
Feel free to reach out to me with any questions!

2023.05.28 04:39 Alarming_Phase9950 Self Serve Checkouts

Self serve checkouts are infuriating and possibly the single most horrible part of life. I can understand a business (specifically Woolworths, Coles in this example) finding efficiencies and budgeting improvements in using self serve checkouts. Sure it removes jobs, but that isn’t even my actual frustration with these things.
They’re agonising to the customer (in my experience) every 3 items I have to wait for the staff member supervising to come over and enter their code because the weight hasn’t registered properly. Every other item, I have to lift it off the weight scale and place it back on because they must use the most sensitive weight detection known to man. Every 5 items, just when I’m getting on a roll- “unexpected item in bagging area”. Honestly, can they not update the software or something in these machines to make the experience at least somewhat better? Yes, I know, online shopping exists. But sometimes it’s just convenient if I’m at the shops anyway. All conveniences is destroyed when I have to use this machine because the one line they have open is backed up to the other end of the store - and I’m sure that’s because some people flat out avoid self checkout for the pure inconvenience it is.
Okay, I’m being hyperbolic, I can understand if some of this is my operating skills. But I need to get this frustration out there and see your thoughts

2023.05.28 04:36 ReclinerRater Looking for the best wall hugger rv recliners? Here are some tips and recommendations.

Hi everyone,
I'm a long-time RV enthusiast and I love to travel in comfort and style. One of the things that makes a big difference in my RV experience is having a good recliner to relax and enjoy the view. But not all recliners are suitable for RVs. Some of them take up too much space, are too heavy, or are not durable enough for the road. That's why I prefer wall hugger rv recliners, which are specially designed to fit in tight spaces and require minimal clearance from the wall.
Wall hugger rv recliners are also easy to install, operate, and maintain. They come in various styles, colors, and features to suit your preferences and needs. Some of them even have massage, heating, or swivel functions to enhance your comfort.
So how do you choose the best wall hugger rv recliner for your RV?
Here are some tips and recommendations based on my personal experience and research: -
  1. RecPro Charles Collection 30" Zero Wall RV Recliner: This is one of the most popular and highly rated wall hugger rv recliners on the market. It has a sleek and modern design, a durable faux leather material, a padded headrest and armrests, and an easy-to-use lever mechanism. It also comes in various colors to match your RV interior.
  2. Thomas Payne Euro Recliner Chair with Footrest: This is another stylish and comfortable wall hugger rv recliner that features a swivel base, a footrest, and an adjustable headrest. It has a soft fabric material that is easy to clean and maintain, and a sturdy wood frame that can support up to 300 lbs. It also comes in different colors to suit your taste.
  3. Mcombo Electric Power Lift Recliner Chair with Massage and Heat: This is a wall hugger rv recliner that offers more than just relaxation. It has an electric power lift function that can help you stand up or sit down easily, a massage function that can target your back, legs, thighs, or lumbar area, and a heating function that can warm up your body. It also has a USB charging port, a cup holder, and two side pockets for your convenience.
These are just some of thewall hugger rv recliners that I recommend for your RV. Of course, there are many more options out there that you can explore and compare. The important thing is to find one that suits your needs, budget, and preferences. I hope this post was helpful and informative for you. If you have any questions or comments about wall hugger rv recliners, feel free to share them below. I would love to hear from you.
Happy RVing!

2023.05.28 04:34 Acrobatic_Clock_6118 Am I burnt out?

Is this burnout?
It’s hard to be sure with me. I’m waiting to see a psych for a diagnosis of ADHD (I 100% have it). I’ve had assessments in the past but they said I had a learning disability but with lots of hallmark ADHD traits (exec dysfunction, in attentiveness, tardiness, unorganized, poor memory, etc…)
At the beginning of College I was full of hope that I can compensate for my shitty HS career into something better and start a career. It wasn’t until it was too late that I suspected ADHD. I failed half of every semester and I took 4 years out of 2 to graduate and I dropped out, total waste of time. I started having feelings of being a loser because I fell way behind on expectations and never started my life, only to be brain fogged, unemployed(able), and having lost any sort of ambition.
I wanted to do many things but I can’t sustain any interest, now I have no interests, no job, nothing. I don’t even qualify for 95% of jobs because I never finish what I start. I wanted to play piano, nope, want to read, nope, want to be a programmer, nope. I’ve only ever worked part time minimum wage and my record of staying employed was 4 months due to constant firings for the most shameful of reasons.
My friends are all adults now and have settled or doing well post high school and I’m a lonely kid trapped in a 22 year olds body, I don’t even take myself seriously.
I’m exhausted all the time, I sleep in until noon, I’ve been drinking more, but rationing it because I have no money, I’m brain fogged, I’m rarely happy or joyful, I’m in debt that went to a collection agency, so I can throw future investments away. I don’t even care that my life is crumbling anymore, even my voice changed. I speak in a lower and slower tone.
This condition is stripping away my happiness and robbing me of a life I want to live

My friend and I are finally taking the lifetime dream vacation we've been scheming about since like... 2018? We're going to Japan for three weeks. I don't know if I'll squeeze in posts during that time or not, but if I do... it's gonna be at weird times. I'm not even sure if it'll be on the right day according to my usual timezone. Just going to roll with things and see how it goes.

I wanted to upgrade my bed frame (a $230 IKEA Slattum) but didn't want to drop $1000+ on a Thuma. I searched this sub for bed frames and saw multiple mentions of KD frames. The price was right and a couple days later, two packages landed on my door step.
KD frames are cleaned up, sanded, unfinished poplar wood. I thought about leaving the poplar as-is or just adding polyurethane. Watched a few youtube videos and decided I wanted to sand, stain and finish the wood despite no experience. I spent an additional $140 or so at Home Depot and Lowe's:
Varthane Gel Stain - Hickory Minwax Pre-stain wood conditioner (I ended up using almost 2 pints) Minwax Wipe-on Polyurethane Paint Project Lifters 2 packs of 220 grit sandpaper Regular paper towels Shop towels tack cloth small poplar wood sample Staining pads
I bought a full sized frame as well as the rolling drawers that slide under the frame, so 50+ pieces to work with. I gave everything a light sanding with 220 grit, nothing too heavy. Cleaned up the wood with tack cloth, air compressor. Applied pre-stain conditioner, waiting 30 minutes and applied the stain. About the stain - I picked up small piece of poplar at Home Depot and used to test colors with some stain I already had. Didn't like how any of them turned out, then caught a reddit thread about gel stain working well on poplar. They weren't lying. It's much easier to work with - more forgiving.
Anyways tl;dr: Lightly sanded, stained, several coats of wipe-on polyurethane, cure time and I've got a nice looking, solid bed frame for a fair price. Hope this post helps anyone looking for a nice bed frame.
