2023.06.10 22:10 robonlocation Montreal Airport Shuttle size
So last week, I took the train from Ottawa to Montreal to get to the airport. When I got off at Dorval Station, the shuttle arrived after about 7 minutes, but it was a small van, maybe 8 passengers. The problem is about 30 people got off the train and needed to get to the terminal. The driver told us he would be back in half an hour. Is this a common issue here? I kindof expected a large shuttle, similar to the buses you see take people to car rental lots.
Unfortunately I was cutting it close already (my Ottawa flight was canceled and I had to hop on a train to Montreal so I could catch my flight), so I had to get an uber to get to the terminal. I actually ended up splitting it with 4 other people who were in a rush, so it wasn't too bad. But if the shuttle only comes every half hour, they really need a vehicle that can hold more people.

2023.06.10 22:03 Cameron_Blalock I was hired for one position at a reastraunt, yet they are scheduling me at a position I didn't apply, Train or sign for. What are the legalities of this? Shoukd I leave or demand to be put on what I applied for?
Howdy, I'm a 21 year old male in college, I recently took a summer job at a high volume reastrunt for the summer as a ServeServer assistant. I interviewed for this position and was hired on the spot, I was supposed to do 4 days of days of training, but on my 4th day we were short staffed and they let me go on my own, as I have a few years of experience in doing this. As a server assistant I was assigned to a few tables that were assigned to me, and I was on tip share on that point. As the night is ending a manager asks me for my availability, to which i tell him to work me asmuch as possible, and his response was he can guarantee 5 days and if I ask for a 6th he can give it to me, but a minimum of 4 days a week, after this conversation he informs me to take the next 2 days off and I'II get my schedule in 2 days. So, I get my schedule and I'm scheduled for 3 days and I'm scheduled as a Busser and a food runner. 2 positions I didn't apply for or train for. And these two positions are much much less money, 15$/hr with no tips. Yet I applied for 2 tipped positions. What are the legalities of this? Is this a false premise that I can sue for? Should I demand the correct job? Or should I just leave?

2023.06.10 22:02 Electronic-Draw5599 Asking for hookup after 2nd date rejection?
33 (M) I went on a Hinge date in London with a girl on Tuesday night, had two drinks, I did some innocuous touching every now and then and I held her hand on the walk back to the train station. I wasn’t expecting to kiss but we just fell into a 30 second long make out before we parted ways, she said lovely to meet you etc.
I asked her out for a 2nd date the following morning and she didn’t see it working out romantically.
I might be bad at reading signals on a date, but did she just want to hookup on the first date and wasn’t being direct about it?
Anyway seeing there’s no relationship potential, do you reckon it’s worth asking her to hookup? I have a strong physical attraction to her, and we all have sexual needs.

2023.06.10 21:45 HareWarriorInTheDark Trip Report - 12 days in Tokyo, Disneysea, Hakone, Kyoto, Nara, Osaka. Early 30s couple, late risers!
This sub helped me out a lot so thought I'd share my experience in Japan. Hope I can bring a bit of a different perspective because unlike most of the people that seem to post here, we are definitively not early risers and rarely left the hotel before 1pm every day. Still had a great time and crowds were only an issue in a few places.
We're an early 30s Asian-American couple traveling from Germany, so we're coming at this from a bit of an in-between of Western and Eastern perspective. I have been to Japan when I was 15 with family, but remember basically nothing. It was my wife's first time. We had an absolutely wonderful time and both thought it was the best vacation we've had in years.
The trip was pretty last minute (for my standards at least). I started planning the trip from scratch (no flights, hotels or anything booked) in early April and our trip was May 18-30. We spent 5 days in Tokyo including DisneySea, 2 nights in Hakone, 3 nights in Kyoto including day trip to Nara, and 1 night in Osaka. We flew in to Tokyo Narita and flew out of Osaka Itami. We decided to fly from Osaka to Tokyo instead of bullet train back to Tokyo so we didn't have to buy JR rail pass and worry about luggage. Tokyo
- We stayed in Ginza, which was significantly cheaper than similar hotels in Shibuya or Shinjuku. Maybe it was because I was planning such last minute, but I enjoyed the area just fine. Lots of restaurants and close to Tokyo Station which was convenient.
- Shout out to Star Club in Shinjuku. Had a wonderful Saturday night there drinking til 4am, chatting with other patrons and the super friendly bartender. Mix of locals and tourists.
- T's Tantan Ramen in Tokyo Station was one of my favorite ramen places of the trip (tied with the Michelin star one from Kyoto, but minus the wait). The bowl had a good variety of vegetable ingredients (which didn't seem that common in Japan, most ramen was just noodles and meat) which I really appreciated. Small queue but didn't wait more than 10m.
- The only restaurant reservation we made all trip was at Bon. Vegetarian multi-coursed meal. I would recommend, it was very nice, though sometimes a tad under salted for my taste. My wife loved it though. You get your own little private room to eat, even for two people, which was unexpected and very lovely.
- Asakusa has a tourist center with air conditioning, bathrooms, and an 8th floor view. Nice place for a rest
- Akihabara did nothing for us, as we're not really into anime or games. Pretty skippable if you are similar.
- I thought Ameyoko Shopping District was a disappointment. More like a flea market, it was similar to many Taiwan street/night markets that we've been to before. We also had probably our worst meal in Japan here, at a hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurant where the food was extremely mediocre. I would have skipped this place altogether and go to Ueno Park or something instead.
- Character Street in Tokyo Station was very fun to explore, we did a lot of shopping there. Nice place to visit before taking the Shinkansen.
- We enjoyed Takeshita Street in Harajuku. As mentioned before we went at around 8pm and it wasn't too crowded.
- When planning I had thought about skipping Shibuya Scramble but I'm really glad I didn't. Something about witnessing the sheer number of people bustling about was so epic and grand. Reminded me of Saturday midnight at EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival) when the atmosphere is electric and everyone is moving from one main stage to another.
- Golden Gai was interesting to look at, but way too claustrophobic for us. Very small alleys and very small bars.
- I enjoyed Tsukiji Market a lot. This is one of the places I would agree with people here and advise you get there early. Take advantage of jet lag and get here before 7am, and it is literally a buffet of delicious fresh foods. (not much choice for vegetarians though sadly). By 8am it was starting to get REALLY crowded. I prefer picking out my sashimi this way as opposed to a restaurant tbh, you can look at many options and pick whatever looks freshest. First time eating Wagyu here, had it on a stick. Delicious. Not the cheapest, but I figured if I ate it at a restaurant I'd also be paying for table service and atmosphere. I'm not big on the "restaurant experience", I'd rather just eat my food and be on my way.
- I thought Hamarikyu Gardens was wonderful. I love city parks where there is green, peaceful nature in the fore ground, contrasted by enormous skyscrapers towering in the background. Hamarikyu Gardens fits that perfectly. Got there right when they opened after visiting Tsukiji Market and it was a perfect way to walk off the big hearty breakfast. ~1 hour at a moderate pace should do it.
- Ginza Corridor after work was very interesting to see around 5-7pm or so. Simply packed to the brim with business folks wearing suits and having a good time after their work day
- We checked the weather and specifically went on a rainy weekday. I highly recommend, it was not crowded at all. Almost all the rides are indoors anyway and most of the queueing is either inside or covered. We got to the park at 2pm and basically rode everything we wanted before the park closed at 9pm with time to spare.
- Popular rides still had 40m-1hour wait, but we used premier pass for Center of the Earth and Soaring. Most we ever waited was 20m for Finding Nemo (similar to Star Tours, all in Japanese but very fun). I checked the app the next day when it was sunny and saw the wait times for each attraction were 3-4x longer.
- Another thing I think the rain helped with was that the premier passes did not sell out. We were able to buy them as late as 6pm to Journey to the Center of the Earth. (Fun ride, but I can't imagine waiting 1.5 hours for it)
- I think Soaring is pretty meh, I'd probably skip it next time. I've been to the one in CA ages ago and remember thinking it was just okay too, but we had extra time so decided to try it here.
- Sinbad was excellent, the ride that most exceeded expectations. It's basically "It's A Small World" but way better animatronics and story telling.
- Indiana Jones is worse than in the one in California (less exciting, no fire effects), but the line was nonexistent so we went on it twice.
- It stopped raining at night too so we were able to catch the Believe show with no issues. It's a good show but it is very long, about 40m. Much longer than I thought. After show is over, there's only about ~1 hour before the park closes, so good time to catch a last ride at one of the popular attractions while the locals are heading home.
- I love how every restaurant has a display in front that shows you what the food will look like. They were all extremely accurate and not at all misleading!
- (not a tip but a rant, is it really necessary to have 10 thousand parking spots when the vast majority of people are going to arrive on Tokyo's world-class public transit system?)
- Open Air Museum was really nice on a pleasant day. It's mostly outdoors. We spent a leisurely two hours there, but you could probably do it in one hour at a brisk pace.
- We left our Ryokan at 1pm to do the Hakone Loop and still completed it comfortably with plenty of time spent on shopping.
- Speaking of shopping, Cat Goods near Gora station was a wonderful little store full of cat stuff!! Our shopping list in Japan was basically to buy as much cat-themed home goods at possible, and we went crazy here. They also do tax-free! Recommend this place if cat-themed goods sounds interesting to you, the shop people were super nice!
- We stayed 2 nights 3 days in a Ryokan. I purchased Hakone free pass for 3 days, which was maybe not worth it. The first and last day we only took transport to leave Hakone to Odawara station, so I think it would have been cheaper to use the IC card to pay for it ad-hoc instead of an entire extra "free pass" day. Might be worth looking in to.
- If you have the Freepass, don't tag IC card at the stations. Show your Freepass to the attendant instead. It can't be a screenshot, they need to see the day
- Google Maps was great everywhere except Hakone. For some reason it was especially unreliable here, it led us stray a few times.
- Busses are faster for getting around, but have very little space for luggage and seemed packed with locals. If time is not an issue, I'd ride the Hakonetozan Line with your luggage, much more comfortable and more space.
- If you can spare the money, getting a private onsen was really really nice. Plus you can drink while you chill!
- Had an excellent time at Gion Bar M16, favorite bar experience we went to in Japan. The owner was super friendly and welcoming, and was himself a very interesting person that has lived a full life and travelled all over the world. Very interesting to talk to. He was also very knowledgeable about whiskey and drank whiskey with us while letting us try some different whiskeys and giving recs about what to buy and bring home. Also gave us lots of delicious and interesting snacks while we got drunk together. We also met a friend of the owner there who is a foreigner that has been living in Japan for 8 years, and gave us some recs.
- One of his recs was Eikan-do Temple as a less-crowded temple option. Good rec! We really enjoyed this place a lot. Probably our favorite temple out of the 5 or so we visited. They have this really extensive "shoes-off" wooden walkway on support beams. It felt like exploring a big tree house, because the wooden part went up the cliff as well. The insides areas were also very extravagant and intricate. Not so many tourists, even Sunday middle of the day. I really recommend as well!
- Another of his recs was Men-ya Inoichi (has a Michelin star). You line up when the shop opens to get a ticket, and then come back at a designated time, though there's still a wait before you actually eat. We probably waited ~50m in total, 20m at the beginning and 30m when we returned. Even then, thought it wasn't worth the time. Don't get me wrong it was very good, but IMO not significantly better than other ramen places.
- Kodai-ji Temple was a miss for us, especially after Eikan-do. Thought it wasn't that interesting, would have skipped.
- Kiyomizu-dera was indeed very nice, but very very crowded. Another place I would actually either going early or late for.
- The shopping street in front of Kiyomizu-dera was super fun to browse, but also very crowded.
- Had lunch at this tucked away Soba restaurant in an alley that was very nice, one of my favorite meals in Japan. Owner was friendly and spoke in Japanese to a translator that replayed his words in English. Noodles nice and chewy. Good experience, felt very personal!
- We visited Yasaka-jinja Shrine and Maruyama Park both in the evening and during the day, and much much prefer it when it's dark. Less crowded and there are cute little lamps that are lit up and make the whole place look magical.
- Arrived in Nara station at ~2:30pm and left at 7pm. Felt like we saw plenty.
- Nothing new to add, the bowing deer are fun to visit and feed, though they can be quite aggressive. We went on Saturday and there was large crowds of children in their school uniforms, but we didn't really mind it too much.
- Isuien Garden and Yoshikien Garden are both very nice gardens, good place to get away from crowds for some peace and quiet.
- Didn't spend much time in Osaka, but Dontonburi was fun to walk through and shop.
- Ate at a very nice Okonomiyaki restaurant. It was our first time eating it so can't compare it to anywhere else, but the staff was super friendly and bubbly and we had an excellent time there. They also have a little dice game you can play to "gamble" on getting a drink for free, or "lose" and get the drink double sized and also pay 2x the price
- Shout out to our hotel, Hotel Royal Classic Osaka. We were only there for one night, but my god this hotel was so convenient. Directly connected to the subway station via an elevator, and also has a 24-hour FamilyMart you can enter from the lobby. It was also only 3m walking away from a airport limousine bus, which made going to the airport super easy. If we ever visit Osaka for a longer stay, we would definitely book this hotel again.
- The flipside to getting to a popular tourist spot early, is to get there very late. We visited Takeshita Street in Harajuku at 8pm at night and it was very comfortably not crowded. Also noticed other tourists spots tended to clear up near closing time, like Senso-Ji in Asakusa.
- As everyone says, toilets are generally as clean as you can reasonably expect, everywhere from parks to gardens to subway stations. Nastiest toilet I saw was in Don Quixote at 1am, trash everywhere.
- 7/11 seemed to have English featured more prominently on their products labels compared to other convenience store chains. All the convenience store food options seemed very similar, so I started to favor 7/11 for the language convenience. (FamilyMart had English in super tiny letters on the side of the label lol)
- In one of those small counter seating type restaurants, I saw someone take the wrong backpack when they left (didn't know it was the wrong backpack at the time ). A few minutes later, the person who's backpack was taken got up to leave, and was very confused trying to find his backpack. He spent a long 10m talking to the restaurants folks (in Japanese), before the original guy came back super apologetic. Anyway keep an eye on your stuff. I know Japan is a safe country, but accidents do happen.
- One trick we had was to tie a little charm or hair tie to the handle of our umbrella, making it less likely someone would accidentally take yours from the sea of indistinguishable white plastic umbrellas.
- Yes there's a lot of walking. My feet tend to get damp if I'm out all day and foot powder works wonders, highly recommend it. Picked up this trick while attending music festivals.
- No issues with tax refunds and customs. We packed some of our stuff in carry-on in case they inspected, but nothing happened.
- Used Ubigi esim and it was perfect. I bought 10gb and used 7gb over our trip, doing most of the navigation and planning. My wife bought 1gb and used about 700mb with just random internet surfing. I will 100% be using this service for travel to other countries in the future, not just Japan, it was so damn convenient.
- Definitely leave extra time for navigating subway stations, those things are like enormous underground malls.
- Shinkansen app didn't work for our iphone country (Germany), but I was able to use the mobile web browser pretty easily. Great for free, last-minute rescheduling of Shinkansen tickets when we inevitably take too long shopping.
- Apple Wallet Suica / IC card worked like a charm (with AMEX and Mastercard). One thing though it that it can sometimes take up to 1 minute for the money to load onto the account, so don't wait until the very last minute and accidentally hold up the bus.
- Taxis are green when someone is in it and red when they are free (at least in Tokyo?). Confused the hell out of drunk me at 4am in the morning. I think in Kyoto it is orange instead when someone is in them, and the orange/red difference is quite hard to spot from far away.
- On that note, I had sorta assumed the metro runs all night in Tokyo, but this is definitely not the case. They stop service from about midnight to 5am, so keep an eye on the last train if you do intend to catch it. Otherwise you'll have to take a more-expensive-than-usual taxi (captive markets), but not a big deal. We thought it was typically priced in comparison to most other US and European cities.
- We had a choice between a 1 hour or 3 hour layover in Tokyo NRT and we chose 3 hour because we weren't sure how long it would take to transfer from Terminal 3 to Terminal 1 in NRT. In actuality it took less than 30m, so the 1 hour would have probably been fine. We didn't mind the extra buffer time to relax though.- Absolutely enormous plane flying between Osaka and Tokyo. Like literally it was the size of a transatlantic plane, with 10 seats in each row, for a sub 1 hour flight, completely full with business travelers (judging by their suits and brief cases).
- We aren't big foodies; we like Japanese food a lot but food isn't really a top priority for us while traveling. Some of our favorite meals were from 7/11 (kelp & bonito flavoured tofu stick, sukiyaki beef over rice, fish flavored cheese snacks, grilled squid. Yum!)
- Most meals were good, if a bit straightforward. At least the places we ate at, main courses seemed to be carb heavy, with a side of meat, and little else. I know we could have gotten side dishes, but the portion sizes were too big for us to order more.
- Very few vegetables in general, and if there were some they were pickled. (Guess it makes sense for an island country). I usually bring fiber pills with me when traveling and do recommend it for Japan too.
- Wife is vegetarian, I am not. Japan is not particularly vegetarian friendly if you don't like tofu, which fortunately my wife does. Most places did have at least one tofu option, so it worked out okay for us. She doesn't follow it super strictly though. A few times she would order a dish and I would just pick out the meat from her bowl.
- Portion sizes were a LOT bigger than I thought they would be. I think maybe we are just small eaters. US and European portions are a little bit bigger I suppose, but Japanese portion sizes were too big even for us. Especially ramen! It was crazy to see folks wolf down an giant bowl of ramen, then ask for an extra helping of noodles with their remaining soup, and finish that up too.
- We only made one reservation beforehand and waited in line over 10m once. Worked out fine for us.
- Restaurants tend to do last call an hour or more before closing, so don't get there too late. Happened to us twice before we learned our lesson, got to a restaurant about one hour before the listed closing hours and they turned us away.
- The Japanese palette seems to be much more subtle than typical western palette, and notably less salty. We often find Asian food at US/German restaurants too salty or saucy. Even then, some of the food we ate was bordering on the minimum range of my taste buds to almost be bland. Just my opinion, most of it was good but sometimes the lack of salt was pretty noticeable to me. My wife tends to like things less salty than me though and she thoroughly enjoyed all of those meals no problem. Soup noodle places like ramen and udon are excluded from this, those were usually perfectly salted to my taste.
- Walking while eating seemed fine. I saw at least 3 different instances of Japanese people doing it.
- Apparently there are no laws banning public drinking in Japan. You can drink alcohol on the street no problem, but I rarely saw people doing that (unlike here in Germany where people seem to take full advantage of it and also leave trash everywhere). I did see a few groups of Japanese people doing it at night in Tokyo, usually near bus stops, and the next morning saw the empty bottles and cans. Guess there are litterers everywhere. We had a beer in the park at night, weren't loud about it and took our trash with us. That was very pleasant.
- Hotels always have liquid or foam hand soap! I hate the bar soaps that most Western hotels provide in the room, so I usually bring my own liquid hand soap. Was totally not necessary for this trip.
- Lots of people on this sub have mentioned check-in time being very precise, as in you rarely can check in before the designated time. We didn't experience this first hand. But on the flip side, we did find out that check out time is very precise too! They start calling your room about 15-20m after your check out time. This is in contrast to most American/European hotels that we've stayed at, which are in my experience very lax about their check out times. We can often get away with leaving the room at 1-2 hours after the stated check out time (we're late risers). Not so in Japan.
- Agree with other people's advice that booking a hotel close to a big subway station is probably the most important factor. It sucks having to walk 10m to the station every single day, and it is amazing when it is close. Also being close to a 24/7 convenience store was also very nice for late night munchies.
- We only knew sumimasen, konichiwa, and arigato gozaimasu and got alone just fine (lots of hand gestures!). We do know a bit of Mandarin Chinese though so that was helpful with reading signs.Some places knew Mandarin better than English and would switch to that if they thought we could speak it. Chinese tourism seems like big business (we saw a ton of Chinese tourists everywhere) so I guess it makes sense for people in tourism industry to cater towards that. Announcements (like over train stations) always went Japanese, English, often Chinese, then sometimes Korean.
* I thought it was kind of expensive, but it does make things easier.- ○ Tokyo -> Hakone: 2310 yen- ○ Hakone to Kyoto: 2630 yen- ○ Kyoto -> Osaka: 1940 yen. * I feel like for that price you could take a taxi to and from your hotels to the train station and it wouldn't be much more work. There was plenty of space on the Shinkansen to put smaller checked luggage overhead. Then you don't have to prepack things the day before. * For the first leg Tokyo -> Hakone, we shipped two checked luggage which was about ~32 euros. After that we only shipped one, not two. * The middle ground we found was to designate one suitcase as souvenirs and dirty laundry and forwarded it every time. We would then travel with two carry-ons and one checked luggage. YMMV depending on your number of luggage and ease of carrying them.

2023.06.10 21:41 newgirl222 Guy lasting a long time during sex ?
I 27yr old F) hate having to go to Reddit for advice or anything but here goes , I’ve been seeing this guy (28 M) for 2 months , we met at the gym & even tho we have been seeing each other for 2 months we had sec for the first time last night. We both have pretty busy schedules but we talk every day throughout the day , we train together at the gym almost every day , talk on the phone for hours , we’ve been on a few dates but wanted to get to know each other first before sleeping together with finally happened last night . i Can tell he genuinely really likes me and we have a great connection. We are both very active and healthy . We had an amazing date last night night & ended up in the back of his car and had sex, it was great , super passionate and loving except it took him awhile , i would say maybe 12 -15 min give or take to finish . Now i know a lot of guys can get frustrated bc women complain about guys finishing TOO quick, But I’ve seen and heard so many things about when a man takes a long time to finish it’s because he doesn’t really like the woman, that thought freaks me out and i know people would say to just talk to him but i was just wondering if any other men simply just take along time to finish even if they do really like the woman …

She’ll be once again aided by fellow heavy striking enthusiast Tokiko “Otoki” Kirihara
! Otoki is ChocoPro’s “Comaneci” shouting straight forward fighter. She’s sometimes showing off her comedic chops along side Anton in several forms of Black Comaneci, but outside of that brutalizing foes is her bread and butter! This kick-boxing, Judo throwing, Fourth Gen berserker can go toe to toe with the rest of the roster: even her seniors! Putting these two together fuels their respective berserk states, so this should be a blast. Let’s go, Lucky Comaneci!
Shin Suzuki 🍙 & Minoru Fujita 🐦
Masa Takanashi 🍶 & Sayaka Obihiro 💙 Shin Suzuki
has finally established himself among the best of the best in ChocoPro. This spunky technician found his true balance along side Choun Shiryu, but his overall power level has increased with his confidence. Expect his excellent fundamentals and incredible timing to lead this acrobat toward victory in any situation. While his ability is unquestionable, he will be testing that new attitude when taking on his ideal wrestler (who happens to be one of the champs he got the belt from!). Shin will be joined by Minoru Fujita
, the exalted Vice Principle and fantastic pick up partner. Known for his accolades in singles, deathmatches, and especially tags (also his angelic singing voice
), Fujita was once away from the Chocolate Square due to injury, but he’s finally back into the normal rotation! This bird loving brawler is still a terror with endless endurance...even if he looks a bit different now. His brawler style and high level of technicality make him a fierce (but also rotten) opponent. How will this rare pairing have improved with Shin’s rise to the top?
The Chef and the Drunk, together again! Sayaka Obihiro
and Masa Takanashi
are one of the most Veteran combinations you can get in ChocoPro! While both have been around since this new offshoot of Gatoh Move started, fate prevented them from teaming up often. (Also Obihiro being both a Chef and occasional member of the UMA Monster Invaders…) Obi is a charismatic scoundrel, able to do flashy pinning techniques that seem like magic. Her chops are on the same level as her boss and teacher, “the Oni” Emi Sakura! She brings with her a raw joy that is very engaging, and it helps that her move set is so flashy...not to mention that fiery gear! Masa on the other hand is pretty rotten, a counter-fighter with a knack for annoying his opponents. The Drunken Monkey's style is very technical and crisp, but he isn't afraid to go dirty! Don't be fooled by his laid back nature and swaying movements...Masa is a real threat. Between Masa's trickery and Obi's personality, this combination is a surefire thrill ride. Though Masa’s grudge about losing the belts in such a manner (due to Chrissy B’s injury) might lead to a bit more spice than you’re expecting...
Hagane Shinno ⚔️ (c)
Chie Koishikawa 🏵️
Winter is cold and unforgiving. Hagane Shinno
represents that freezing season with more than just his icy demeanor! This absolutely brutal striker has been nearly invincible in the series so far, having never been bested in singles combat! His solemn ferocity makes him an instant favorite among new fans...(with Hagane surprising most with his exceptional technical skill, emotionless demeanor, and explosive fighting style) while his byronic nature pairs well with his otherworldly beauty (canonically, thanks Emi!). This mysterious eccentric perfectionist has come out of his shell quite a bit since he paired with Chie Koishikawa in EGG TART, the cheery energy machine having even drawn a smile out of him! Hagane has had a long career, one that has been guided by his own stubborn & unflinching decisions. Every action is decisive. Every decision is final. While his unwavering will is one of the things that aligns him the most with Chie, there is an issue. He has decided that if EGG TART is going to progress and become a true team on the same level, he must force Chie to grow out of the “protected” and stop being her Guardian. He has granted her a challenge for his Big Blue Belt to test her growth, to see if she is truly up to the task of true synergy. This forced increase in chemistry will be brutal, but fruitful for them both regardless of outcome. Chie Koishikawa
has endless energy, boundless potential, and a destiny beyond what any of us can fathom. But is she capable of seizing that unique strength? Her charisma is unquestionable, the Frantic Fencer warming the hearts of fans across the world with her emotional outbursts and reckless style. Her desire is rock solid, her passion burning out of her far beyond what her body can take (even giving the former tag champions one of their greatest defenses). But there will always be another Mountain to climb. Baliyan Akki learned this when it came for him, but even Akki possesses something Chie does not: perfect synergy with his tag partner. Chie wants to ascend, she wants to be able to bring down stronger opponents both on her own and as a team with Hagane. But all of their battles have ended with her being the weak link, the downfall of the team. She has been training harder and harder, pushing herself further and further...but is it enough? Chie has finally earned a Super Asia Title shot, but in a unique way: She must prove herself in this match to be her Guardian’s equal. To stand beside him, instead of behind him. She will need to push beyond her limitations to succeed, to reach that next level. Chie must find a way to strike down a superior foe, to at least bring herself to be able to stand proud against him. Will her speed striking be enough? Can she outrun the cold? Can she find a way to harness her hidden talent of “too much energy”? Good luck, Chie!
Come and see the wild creativity that produced Two of the Seven AEW Women's World Champions! (Both of which have appeared on ChocoPro!) You'll be wondering if you're seeing future champs, as well. ChocoPro is the Frontier of Pro Wrestling! Match after match of hard hitting, chaotic, fun bouts with a friendly online audience. We're quickly growing, and you're welcome to come along!
Here are some Frequently Asked Questions
“What is this?”
ChocoPro is a free online promotion run by AEW's Emi Sakura, that takes place in the legendary Ichigaya Chocolate Square! It features a steady pace of live Episode releases, fan interaction, season long story arcs, and much more! A place where the turnbuckles are replaced with 14th floor windows, the ropes are often replaced with fans, unforgiving walls provide creative avenues for skills otherwise unthinkable, and you can take solace in knowing that the referees usually do nothing. While it might be a shocking change at first, the intensity and storytelling will leave you wanting more.
“Why are they fighting in ____?”
Short answer is that it is a cost effective, unique venue with a better availability schedule and allows the roster access for training. Emi Sakura has been using this place for a long time, and you might be surprised at some of the names that have used it (even outside of ChocoPro!). There are a few in-ring Episodes and Gatoh Move has in ring shows with crowds on the YouTube channel. Think of it like the Hart Dungeon but as a promotion, if that helps!
”What are the rules?”
While special match stipulations will usually be explained before the respective matches, the general rules of ChocoPro are simple. Pins only count on the Chocolate Mat and are not broken by the edge or Wall. Submissions usually only count on the Chocolate Mat, and ARE broken by reaching the edge or wall (sometimes ceiling...). Double pins and Double submissions are legal (and encouraged) in ChocoPro Tag matches, meaning cohesive teams will always have the advantage! Count Outs only exist if specified, since many matches stray from the comfort of the Chocolate Square into the streets (and the rest of the building itself!) There is a Time Limit for each bout (based on card placement and importance) and the Referee has discretion (even if they tend to do nothing most of the time!). Every Ref is different, some have different levels of bias and speed.
“How can I support them?”
Watch the show! Even if you can't see it live, the views matter! Like & Subscribe! You can join the Channel's membership for different tiers of perks...but also, you can buy single episode Sponsorship, Digital autographed photos, and more on their shop site
as well as purchase shirts from PWTees (which features some great options!)
If you'd like to donate or purchase a main wall sponsorship, you can via Paypal
...and don't forget to cheer for your favorites! (especially if you want to do a superchat!)
”How come there aren’t a lot of comments on the threads?”
ChocoPro is a YouTube show, meaning the discourse happens live...in the chat! Those that comment in the threads on here tend to do so in order to help new viewers that might be intimidated by the fast moving chat. Don’t be afraid to just dive in though, the community is friendly.
“Why are you posting this here? / Are you paid for this?”
This is a wrestling forum, and I'm trying to broaden the horizons of others! There is a lot of good wrestling out there...Plus growing the fan base means more people for me to joke around with! I honestly do believe this is what a lot of fans are looking for, even if it is too different for some! But different tastes are good. Variety is the spice of life. This is a labor of love (it really doesn't take that long) considering how much work they do to put on so many shows...for free!
If you have any other questions, feel free to ask me on here or on Twitter, where I’m somehow still sick! ChocoPro is Energetic!

2023.06.10 21:34 Sufficient-War-3399 New Album Just Dropped And IDK How To Make It Do The Best I Can. Streams have been going up though so I'm grateful.
What's Good guys. My name is Aarxn & I've been making beats now for just over 6 years & releasing my own songs for just over 2 years now. I posted the first song I ever made in 2020 & since then I haven't slowed down.
I just released a Side A to my album with 15 songs & I've been trying to think of different, unique ways to promote my stuff and maybe find the right ears for my drop. Rather than the usual, like; posting 100 videos a week of the same song to TikTok and Instagram in hopes of one going viral... or emailing / Dm'ing dozens, if not hundreds of different radio stations or playlist curators.
I have plenty scheduled for the future and have also been working hard on getting things out more frequently this year. I feel like because music has helped me so much through life and helped me get past things I don't think I would have without it, that I just get a little bit delusional sometimes, but not in a bad way. I feel like because I know I'm doing what I want and I am actually releasing and getting some results but sometimes I can't help but feel like I am too confident. I know I will make it but how many rappers, artists or even comedians feel like they're going to make it no matter what and just don't. I can't allow myself to lose at a game I made myself a part of. Weird game I play

2023.06.10 21:33 FinnBalur1 A private high school in Toronto cheated me out of my pay by disputing my online teaching hours. Any idea how to go about this?
I signed with this school on May 8th, as a high school English teacher, after quitting a 10-month contract job that I had and that ensured me EI for July and August and even sickdays and holiday. I switched over for a couple dollar hourly wage increase. So, I work this new job, and they paid me less than half of what I'm entitled to get on May 20th. I complained, and so they stalled for weeks and made promises to rectify it on the next payroll period. June 6th comes, and the pay is wrong again. So, I complain again, and at this point they are bouncing me between each other: "go to him," "email her," "do this," "do that." They said I was an independent contractor, not entitled to holiday or sick days, or even paystubs. I am teaching OLC4O to their students, a course the kids need to graduate high school. They gave me timetables and I do online + in-person for them.
They are saying the reason this is a problem is because I did not record my online teaching using Adobe. The issue is my schedule was really busy, and they didn't train me on it. I expressed to them many times I was having technical difficulties with it. The vice-principal even referred me to a person I can email and their response was "we don't have experience with macs, but here's a [very unhelpful] link." I finally got it to work on my own, outside contract hours, but now I keep asking to get paid for my unpaid work (29 hours), and i am getting the run around. I threatened them with the Ministry of Labour but they don't seem to care, even ignoring my emails. I literally have an email from them saying "we will compensate you on the next paycheque," and a message from my VP with a photo of my timetable. But they don't care. I would have quit earlier but I believed them and said "okay, my money will arrive soon" as they stalled for time. Now I'm financially drained.
I'm filing a complaint with the ministry of labour, but it might take time to process and it's not guaranteed. An agent on the phone told me they may have misclassified me (as an independent contractor), and that it didn't make sense. A friend who used to work for EI told me to get a sick leave doctor's note for the anxiety this has caused me and apply to EI, but I think as an independent contractor I may not be entitled to sick leave EI, or even regular teacher EI.
I don't know what options I have at this stage, but I feel helpless.

2023.06.10 21:24 Ninety9CentCornbread Advice
Hello everyone. I’m a 24 year old from Austin, TX wanting to apply for the Austin Fire Academy next year. I have some doubts, and questions and would love to get some feedback and opinions.
First some background:
I have wanted to be a firefighter my whole life. As long as I can remember I have been fascinated by the thrilling career that allows you to help others and play a key role in serving your community. I gave up on this dream eventually. When I was growing up my family struggled with money hard, my mom always put pressure on me to grow up to become successful in the white collar world as a result. I wasn’t the best student in school but once I graduated high school I really tried to make her proud and become successful. I spent 4 and a half years taking online classes and teaching myself what I needed to know to secure a solid job in tech and now I have what I worked so hard for. A high paying job, working from home doing digital marketing. But I don’t feel satisfied. At this point, I’m 24 years old and I’m not enjoying the career I thought would be the answer to all my problems. Now every time I pass a fire station I can’t help but think about my original dream job I had as a kid. Because I was always told firefighters don’t make a good living, and that was made to be very important to me as a kid, I gave up. But now I am wanting to join the fire academy next year, God willing.
I do have a concern seeing as firefighting is an extremely competitive industry to get started in. Is it worth putting an end to my high paying tech career in order to follow my dream of fighting fires? I would say so, but it only would be worth it if I was successful in getting hired. I recently read that only 5% of cadets successfully secure a department job. And that has me worried. Is there any advice you guys have to try and help my chances of getting in the Austin Fire Academy and getting hired by the department afterwards? Would you recommend risking the marketing job I currently hold, even though the chances of me becoming a firefighter may be slim?
I am 5’ 7”, 135 lbs and in decent shape, with plenty of time to train over the next year to get my physique and stamina to where they need to be. But I also have a history of childhood asthma, and I had a fairly intrusive surgery on my ankle when I was in high school. The ankle injury doesn’t stop me from doing things now, I can still run, jump, I play basketball and skateboard. But I do feel pain in it, I don’t let it hold me back, but it’s there. The docs told me I’d most likely feel that pain regardless and so I try to never let it hold me back. I can’t remember the last time I wasn’t able to do something because of my ankle, but the pain is there. Will that disqualify me you think?
Do you guys think this injury or my asthma history would make it more difficult for me to get hired? Do I have a chance? Should I risk my career in order to peruse what I really want to do? Will my lack of experience in firefighting/emt training or certs be an issue as I apply for the cadet program?
I’ll happily take any other advice you guys and gals wouldn’t mind sharing with me as I take on this new challenge would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you, just be honest with me. What do you guys think?

2023.06.10 20:57 Skogsmard Old player getting back into the game after 4 year hiatus: Has the behavior of vanilla metros changed substantially, or is the Metro Overhaul Mod (or my inexperience with it) to blame for my "problems"?
I recently started playing a little bit after not having played at all for the last 4 years, and I haven't bothered with any DLC since Mass Transit (released in 2017). I was recommended to wipe my content manager of old stuff and start over due to compatibility issues and was then pointed to an essentials mod collection.
Among many other things, it included the Metro Overhaul Mod. Some were things I recognize from back in the day (TM:PE & Timboh's collection etc.), while others were new, at least to me. It was mostly smooth sailing until I started playing around with setting up a metro system. I get very frustrated by the complexity of, and the metro system's behavior, once I unlocked it.
First and foremost, the new default depth seems to be about -15m (I believe it was/is shallower before/in vanilla), and now the metro tunnels seem to interfere with other train and road tunnels whereas IIRC it didn't use to do that as it was at a default depth that let it pass under surface roads, but just above (or under, can't recall which) road tunnels located at -12m.
Could you let me know whether these problems are due to the mod (or my inexperience with it), or if these are a result of changes to how Metro behaves in vanilla C:S today?
From what I recall, making a metro system was as simple as: Plop down your station type(s) of choice where you wanted them. Connect stations with tunnels (which by default were on their own 'depth', only needing to avoid other metro lines). Draw the lines and stops. Done.
Now, it just, isn't. What changed? Is it the mod I am using, or the vanilla behavior of the metro transport type in the vanilla game?

2023.06.10 20:40 Grand-Earth2594 is artificial intelligence good for society?
Artificial intelligence (AI) has been a buzzword in the tech world for a while now, and it’s no surprise why. AI has the potential to revolutionize a vast array of industries, from healthcare to finance, and everything in between. However, with all great power comes great responsibility. The rapid advancement of AI technology has brought about concerns around its impact on society. In this article, we’ll explore both the advantages and disadvantages of AI and ultimately answer the question: Is artificial intelligence good for society?
The potential benefits of AI are vast and far-reaching. One of the most significant advantages of AI technology is its ability to improve efficiency and productivity. For instance, in the healthcare industry, AI-powered machines can diagnose diseases more accurately and faster than human doctors, leading to better treatment outcomes. Additionally, AI is revolutionizing the manufacturing industry by improving automation in factories and warehouses, reducing the need for human labor, and improving product quality.
Another advantage of AI is its ability to make our lives easier and more convenient. Devices like Amazon's Alexa and Google Home use AI to understand and respond to voice commands, making it easier to accomplish tasks like playing music, setting reminders, or ordering groceries. AI-powered virtual assistants are also becoming more prevalent in the workplace, allowing employees to offload mundane tasks like scheduling meetings or answering emails, freeing up more time to focus on more critical tasks.
Despite the many potential advantages of AI, there are also valid concerns about the negative impact of the technology on society. One of the most significant concerns is the potential for job displacement. As AI systems become more advanced, they are starting to encroach on jobs traditionally done by humans. For example, self-driving cars may eliminate the need for taxi and truck drivers, and manufacturing robots may replace factory workers. This could lead to significant unemployment and economic hardship for those who lose their jobs.
Another disadvantage of AI is the potential for bias and discrimination. AI systems are only as unbiased as the data they are trained on. If the training data has inherent bias or discrimination, the AI system will replicate and even magnify that bias. This has already been seen in instances where facial recognition systems have shown bias against people of color, and AI-powered hiring tools have shown bias against women. If left unchecked, these biases could perpetuate and exacerbate societal inequalities.
In conclusion, it is clear that the advantages and disadvantages of AI are complex and far-reaching. While the potential benefits of AI technology are vast, we must consider the potential negative impacts on society. It is up to us as a society to ensure that AI is developed and implemented in an ethical and responsible manner, with safeguards in place to prevent any negative consequences. With careful consideration and implementation, AI has the potential to revolutionize our world for the better.
