Arizona has been a growing place to do stand-up with plenty of places to get stage time as well as many alternative comedy shows for those seeking a new writing perspective in general. This subreddit is for those willing to graciously share new sign-up-and-go open mics in the area or any show in general. If your brave enough post your set and ask for critiques. Personally I'm not a fan of taking it too seriously but maybe thats hubris.

2023.06.10 20:10 AutomatonRecognizer Thermochemistry question regarding the thermal decomposition of specific compounds - (sodium oxide and iron oxide) using sodium as a source of energy

Hi there nice forum. The question is below if you don’t want to read the background info

BACKGROUND INFO : I’ve been spending these past few years researching the energy crisis that humanity seems set to encounter pretty soon and without writing too much, I’m very interested in the thermochemical decomposition of sodium oxide and to a lesser extent iron oxide (because I know it’s much harder, iron has a much higher melting point). Fossil fuels basically fit the criteria for being the best energy source ever. Cheap and abundant (currently), high energy density, high thermal radiation, highly portable. It just sucks that it pollutes and that it will run out soon

The websites that have influenced me the greatest (regarding the energy crisis) are

And others. I am not benefiting by marketing them.

My question is that at what temperature does sodium oxide completely decompose to its elements of sodium and oxygen. Does applying sufficient heat alone (thermolysis) enable the separation of these elements or are absurd temperatures required (I consider anything above 2700 or 3000 celsius absurd)

Is there any nifty chart that shows the temperatures required to completely separate these compounds using just heat alone? Sorry if the question sounds dumb it might be because I know that in order to get things to separate usually you need them to combine with another element like carbon or hydrogen (as is often done) along with an electric current using electrolysis.

I assume in the case of the decomposition of sodium oxide that the oxygen will simply combine with surrounding nitrogen once the decomposition occurs. Would that happen? Or would it be a different outcome? Im guessing it wouldn’t happen because both oxygen and nitrogen are negative or positive?

Picture a huge amount of sodium oxide or peroxide sitting in a high temperature bowl like stainless steel or titanium or whatever other container that can withstand the high heat. Then a fresnel lens ontop of the sodium oxide beaming it with solar power.

Or you could heat it up the conventional way idk but obviously you can’t heat it up to 2000 degrees using electricity because most of the industrial coils heated up disintegrate past 1800 degrees (if my memory serves me right) and heating up sodium oxide with fossil fuels to reduce it and use it as an energy source is pointless

MORE BACKGROUND INFO : Im trying to find out if there’s some chemistry genius out there that has tried and researched using these metals as fuel and found a way to easily separate them, or if there’s some way to separate them without using standard electrochemistry because the introduction of electrodes, gases and electricity brings about issues related to corrosion and increased costs. I know thunderf00ts been doing some work related to sodium but his work involves using the sodium for work rather than it’s synthesis and distribution

Sorry if all the things talked about here sound half baked I am not a chemist just a curious mind seeing if the worlds headed to complete shit or not. Electricity alone is not going to power your car or home, at least not without destroying biodiversity. It will also introduce immense pollution, the amount of rock you have to mine using gas powered cars is also off the charts and likely not practical (at least with lithium anyways) also there is very little recycling going on with todays batteries so how in the hell are we going to recycle enough batteries for the billions of cars in the future if we aren’t even recycling the ones being used now. According to various estimates there’s only enough mineable lithium for 1 or 1.5 billion electric cars let alone the batteries you’d need for the city or your home. Either there’s a solution on the horizon or people need to change their expectations about the future

2023.06.10 20:10 Not-the_honouredOne Kizaru vs Old Ray

Kizaru vs Old Ray
To this day people downplay Kizaru saying he couldn't get past an "old man" really acting like this old man is just any other dude.
Let me ask you how would it look like if the former right hand of the Pirate King simply lost to an Admiral just like that? And plot required something happen to save the Straw Hats at that time.
Anyway that's beside the point, a large number of y'all think that Old Ray is above Yamato, some people saying he is a little above her or around her level.
Now to remind y'all Yamato stalled Kaido for like 10 chapters or something, but yeah in real time it's probably like 15-20 minutes.
And Kaido was not holding back either as he states that he's trying to kill Yamato.
So if we can agree Old Ray is >= Yamato why is Kizaru slandered for being stalled by him for a few minutes as well?
If a character stronger than Kizaru, while not holding back can get stalled by why is that such a big anti feat for Kizaru to get stalled by a person around the same level at very least? It doesn't make any sense.
And then coming to Kuzan v Garp, it's the same thing again, Old Garp is unequivocally stronger than Yamato or Old Ray, as he's been way more active than any old legend in his later years and isn't suffering from any illness and has way better use of his haki than Old Ray or Yamato
And him slamming Kuzan is impressive sure, blitzing Kuzan and throwing him down like that yeah, very very impressive, but it's one exchange and it doesn't prove anything. Certainly not that Old Garp > Kuzan.
This man has god tier stamina fighting for 10 days v magma man this attack is doing little to nothing especially cause not only would Kuzan's durability be very good also because he's a logia who wouldn't take damage from being rammed into the ground of all things.
So the Admiral slander of them being "beat by old men" is absolute nonsense.

2023.06.10 20:10 bakochba Why is the Druid Spirit Boon so much work, what's up with Grizly Rage?

I played both a Necro and a Druid, I don't understand why as a Necro I had the book of the read at level 1 but as a druid I had to cross the map CLEAR A STRONGHOLD and go on a quest to open Sprit boons that also require me to spend spirit currency to unlock?
Where the Necro had interesting choices that changed my summons, I expected something similar for spirit boons, like if a bond with a snake I can turn into a snake, or have a snake companion, or at least throw a snake at someone. Instead it's just a bunch of passive stats? Not even game changing just 20% more damage when x happens sometimes.
Grizzly rage. Ok this is it, I'm a Druid, I'm channeling a grizzly, I'm enraged. I expected something like 10 seconds of 100% extra damage and health, all the grizzly powers at no spirit cost and maybe an upgrade that extends it on kill, you know a tank.
Instead it's just 20% extra damage and damage reduction which I can get easily from other sources and I still have to USE SPIRIT TO DO BEAR ATTACKS??? It's grizzly rage not slightly agitated bear that just woke up from a nap. Rage is on the title! An eragged cocaine bear isn't going to be slowed down by spirit or spend half it's rage time with basic attacks, it attacks recklessly with adrenaline fueled attacks and with all its might!!
My Necro literally gets Army of the Dead. An army of dead warriors comes from the ground to attack my enemies. I can get 2 maybe 3 slams while taking damage and then basic attacks again.
If you're about to comment about your level 70 paragon build with the RNG class defining aspects saying how good it is this post isn't for you. We get it, the point is the Necro feels good the entire game atvaby build style, that's how it should be, the amount of work require to get the Druid there seems why out of whack.

I have an ACR Electronics AquaLink personal locator beacon that has an expired battery which needs to be replaced. I can’t find a place near me that does that. I called the company and their customer service didn’t seem to have a clue. Does anyone know of a mail in service or a place near Portland, OR? I see you can order batteries online but am not sure if replacing the battery is straight forward or something I shouldn’t attempt on my own. Any ideas? Thanks.

2023.06.10 20:10 NoSleepTill-Brooklyn 25/EST/PC+PS5 Honkai, OSRS, and Diablo 4! Looking to make some long term friends

Heya everyone! So a little about me, I'm a college dropout who spends all my time currently just playing video games and watching youtube. On RuneScape I’m working on DS2 reqs and Jad runs on my main while I do a group iron on the other half of my screen :P
As for my interests, obviously video games and music which are pretty universal here as well as sports and anime.
As for my favorite games, I used to play a lot of WoW and Overwatch but have fallen out of favor with the latter two. Risk of Rain 2 is always a mainstay. Genshin, OSRS, Guild Wars 2, Skyrim, Pokemon, Sonic Frontiers, Smite, PoE, Diablo, MtG, TFT, Dead by Daylight, Temtem, Satisfactory, Plate Up, Elden Ring, Warframe, League, and Fortnite are some other games I've played recently! I also play every major sports release other than NHL on PS5
I have a massive library and just like to talk about anything so feel free to hit me up and try to make a new friend! Please be LGBT friendly (I am T myself)

2023.06.10 20:10 veganpiinkwiipes I ran a faker call-out sub called MunchSnark - and I regret it.

Hi. I used to run a sub called MunchSnark, which was similar to this sub, dedicated to calling out people on social media who faked physical and mental health conditions. I also used to be accused of being a faker because I was overdramatic and misinformed, and because I was friends with another “faker.” Even though MunchSnark meant everything to me when I ran it, I very strongly believe now that “calling out” fakers is just a form of bullying, and more often than not it targets people with real health conditions who are just “cringy” for whatever reason.
I started MunchSnark because a now-deleted subreddit called IllnessFakersGoneWild had just shut down. They were similar to a subreddit called IllnessFakers, but with more lenient rules, and a tolerance for transphobia and other forms of bigotry. I felt like there was a niche that could be filled, and things that could be improved upon, so I created MunchSnark as a space for calling out any faker (not just an approved subjects list) but with a zero-tolerance policy for bigotry in any form.
I never expected MunchSnark to grow. What started as an impulsively made little subreddit grew into a group of 100, then 1000, and eventually 20,000+ members. I thought I was doing a good thing, allowing callouts and criticism, bringing justice to the disabled and chronically ill community by spreading the truth about the awful fakers.
Then everything fell apart. MunchSnark was banned for violating reddit’s content policy, after some of the regularly-featured people decided to take legal action. It was easiest for reddit to simply shut down the subreddit, even though no rules were actually being broken. So we moved to discord instead. Things quickly became uncontrollable - I had no experience moderating on discord, and had to rely on others to help me. There was drama within the community, and within the mod team. All hell broke loose when KiwiFarms posters decided to reveal my identity and dox me.
In my past, I had done some really fucked up things. I was viewed widely as a “faker” because I was an overly dramatic 19-year-old suffering from improperly treated mental health issues that led me to act out in toxic ways. I was professionally diagnosed with all of the conditions they claimed I was faking, and that didn’t matter to anybody. Even though I had moved on and made slight progress to become a better person, nobody else had moved on from my horrible mistakes. It feels like there’s a constant storm on the horizon, just waiting for me to slip up and have my mistakes become my entire identity again.
The truth is not that I really am a faker - the truth is a lot more boring, not very sensational or interesting. The truth is that I am just a person who did some really bad things. I behaved in incredibly toxic ways. I hurt the communities that I misguidedly thought I was championing for. I was misinformed about the conditions I was diagnosed with, and spread that misinformation because I really just didn’t know any better.
The truth is that MunchSnark, and other subreddits like IllnessFakers and FakeDisorderCringe, do nothing to help the disabled/chronically ill and mentally ill communities - most people in these communities believe that calling out fakers (or “fakeclaiming”) is hurtful. The truth is we get it wrong - probably very often. We allow bullying and misinformation to grow and spread.
There is no way to know that somebody is faking, unless they admit it and say “I am faking.” And this does actually happen - former fakers are coming out of the shadows and owning up to what they did.
I want to own up to what I did too, and apologize for my wrongdoing. My toxic behavior when I was younger was completely unacceptable, and hurt a lot of people, including someone who I care about very much. And by running MunchSnark, I allowed hatred and lies and bullying to grow in the communities I cared about and hoped to defend. Even more than that, I hurt individual people - the “subjects” we post about are *real people* no matter if they’re faking or not, and being called out on a massive platform hurts, especially if it’s not truthful.
To everyone I harmed by my actions: I am incredibly sorry. It was never my intention to harm anyone, and it still happened. I know my apology is probably too little too late, and I wanted to say it anyway. If there is anything more that I can do to make things right, please reach out and let me know.
To everyone reading this who participates in subs like IllnessFakers and FakeDisorderCringe: Please reconsider your actions. I know that it feels like you’re doing the right thing - I’ve been where you are. I have been on both sides of the curtain, and I truly believe wholeheartedly that communities like this are not going to benefit anyone. In fact, they do a lot of harm. Listen to the part of yourself deep down that knows what you’re doing is wrong.

Ten things each USMLE student should do

Ten things each USMLE student should do

(“You might feel like you know it all until you start getting into details! ”)
I completely understand how daunting it feels to prepare for the USMLEs — a mountain of information to learn, questions with confusing choices that make it difficult to pick the “best” answer, and on top of all that, a strict time limit!
I’m an Internal Medicine physician, an Assistant Professor at Brown University, USMLE STEP 2 CK tutor for Michigan State University, and an author of a USMLE STEP 2 CK textbook encompassing all topics for the boards (Thieme: A WIN series for USMLE available online and in bookstores). In addition to a decade of teaching experience, I scored in the 99th percentile on all the 3 USMLE STEP exams and am currently creating an online USMLE question bank.
I hope the following 10 pieces of advice will simplify your “road to residency”:
  1. Use the “IRIS” steps to master USMLE topics. Input- Reflect- Integrate- Share
  2. Do as many practice questions as you possibly can ~The more you practice questions, the better your scores will get
  3. Tackle multiple-choice questions strategically.
  4. Focus on figuring out the right diagnosis.
  5. Use memory techniques to help you remember important details.
  6. Pomodoro!
  7. Use exams, particularly shelf exams, to guide your learning journey.
  8. Get a USMLE-coach
  9. Take care of your USMLE vessel (YOU!)
  10. “The shortest path”

1. Use the “IRIS” steps:

Input, Reflect, Integrate, and Share — in order to master the USMLE topics.
Reading a book (for example, 7 Habits of Highly Effective People) but not reflecting on it and not integrating it into practice will result in the “illusion of learning.” Similarly, it is extremely crucial to practice IRIS to perfect your craft of USMLE preparedness.
Books serve as a great base camp for your knowledge ascents. Choose any USMLE book- a comprehensive book you can reflect upon — for annotation, highlights, and other important notes/personalized mnemonics.
  • For Step 1, there seems to be a consensus of a clear-cut winner being First Aid for Step 1.
  • For Step 2, go to your university library (online/virtual), scan a few of the most popular books, and find one that fits your style. Then stick to the “chosen one” for your learning journey.
Shameless ad: the textbook I authored (Thieme: A WIN book) is also a concise yet thorough book you may choose to utilize for Step 2 CK or Step 3. Check it out!

2. Do as many practice questions as you possibly can.

The more you practice questions, the better your scores will get.

  • Finish all Uworld questions (tutored mode, chapter by chapter; learning one topic at a time improves clarity and efficiency).
  • Then finish the 2 Uworld sim forms, the free 120 NBME questions, and NBME practice exams (in the timed mode — to simulate real exam and to practice time management).
  • Also, try to finish as many Amboss questions as you can. If you finish Amboss too and have extra time and want to be a superstar student, you could even finish Kaplan Qbank along the way!
A suggested timeline for a 2-month USMLE Step 2 study schedule:
  • Complete the entire Step 2 CK UWorld in the first month (averaging around 80–100 questions per day). Focus on the learning objectives of each question and move on — you don’t need to memorize the entire explanation (example demonstrated below).
  • Then, for the next month, do an NBME self-assessment every week to assess your progress. Also, this month, focus on your NBME deficiencies (target your weaknesses, do not run away from them), and attempt to finish the Amboss Qbank.
Links: to NBME, UWORLD, and Amboss

3. Tackle multiple-choice questions strategically.

Step 1: Start by reading the last sentence of the question — this will save some time and will help guide your attention to the specific thing that the question is asking.
How does this save time? With some questions, you don’t necessarily need to read the entire question to pick the correct answer.
For instance:

Which of the following medications will help with ureteral stone expulsion? The answer, in this case, is tamsulosin.
You don’t have to read the entire question stem to answer this question! Time can be saved for other harder questions you will encounter later in that block.
And, if you are doing practice questions from a Qbank, you don’t NEED to read the whole explanation. The goal of this question is to understand that alpha-1 blockers help with ureteral smooth muscle relaxation making it easier for the stone to pass. That’s all; just move on to the next question.
Another tip to save even more time: For really long question stems and lots of lab values, you could jump to the last two lines and scan the labs to note any specific abnormal lab values that might’ve been presented to help answer the question even faster. For example, a long clinical vignette that ultimately says “antiGBM antibody positive”: This line alone gives you the diagnosis of Goodpasture’s syndrome, so you can proceed to answer the question.
Step 2: If the last line (or scanning the labs) isn’t enough, you must read the whole question.
The most efficient way to answer the majority of questions is to follow these steps:
  1. Read the question stem and highlight the pertinent findings.
  2. Make the diagnosis.
  3. Choose the answer based on your diagnosis.
Some students tend to fall into the trap of reading the question stem and then trying to reason through each of the answers before committing to a diagnosis, which is inefficient, as it leads to many back-and-forths.
To reach the diagnosis, focus on your highlighted portions of the question stem. Those are the puzzle pieces that you need to connect to figure out the diagnosis.
For instance:
  • Hoarse voice + weight gain + 1+reflexes in all extremities + proximal muscle weakness = Hypothyroidism
  • Hirsutism + easy bruising + proximal muscle weakness = Cushing syndrome
(As a last step, ask yourself whether all the puzzle pieces fit into the diagnosis you have in mind. To double-check, consider whether your diagnosis fits the patient’s age, chief complaint, and course or severity of the disease. If not, you probably don’t have the right diagnosis and need to re-think it).

4. Focus on figuring out the right diagnosis.

But how you may ask. Let me break this down even further for you.
To answer USMLE questions correctly, you need to master the art of making the right diagnosis — an art that can be learned by clustering different conditions with similar features and then recognizing the features that set them apart.

Further practice: Click on the following links to practice a few questions dedicated to learning of clustering and differentiating method:
Remember, no matter how prepared you are, you will always feel uncertain about some questions, and that’s okay. Just use your best judgment, flag it, and move on. Chances are that you might have a fresh perspective on the question when you come back to it later.

5. Use memory techniques to help you remember important details

Memorizing various pieces of medical information (for example, differentiating features of diseases, management steps, cut-off values, etc.) is key for acing an exam. Use memory-retaining techniques and tools, such as associations, mnemonics, the popular flashcard app ANKI, etc.
New onset ascites generally require diagnostic paracentesis. The two most important things you look for in ascitic fluid are SAAG and neutrophil count.
  • SAAG (serum ascites albumin gradient) = serum albumin concentration — (minus) albumin concentration in ascitic fluid
  • What is the cut-off of SAAG? 1.1.
  • How to remember? SAAG: “AA”= “1” and “1” because “A” is the 1st alphabet. So, the important SAAG value is 1.1. Elevated SAAG (>1.1) is elevated portal pressure.
Don’t build buildings without foundations. Don’t use rote memorization. Use (or even better, create your own) memory associations/mnemonics whenever possible.
* Ascitic neutrophil count of ≥ 250/mm3 is diagnostic of spontaneous bacterial peritonitis.
Example 2:
How to tackle questions of Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia?
Here is a link to a practice question on Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (to integrate what you learned).

Here is a link to information on one of the students’ favorite tools: Anki cards. This is particularly helpful for step 1. I also advise students to make their own Anki flashcards (based on UW incorrect, cross-referencing your chosen book as you make the cards). This reflective and integrative act of making cards is one of the best ways to retain information.

6. Pomodoro (RAM refreshment) technique

The most important strategy for productivity is the Pomodoro (RAM refreshment) technique; Do 25 minutes of USMLE-focused study prep time (with no distractions like your cell phone or TV), followed by 5 mins break. Then, refresh and repeat. (Some students prefer 50 mins study time and 10 mins breaks.)
Pomodoro breaks your work(study) time into portions and gives some rest time for the brain to come back much more refreshed. This provides the much-needed reset to your productivity decline after 25 to 50 mins of study (improving overall efficiency and preventing burnout). I have seen some students working on their computers during this 5 min break. This isn’t RAM refreshment. (Get up from that chair, go out of that room, and de-strain your eyes and your body posture!)
Here is a link to a great Chrome extension for this. It also measures your total study time.

7. Use exams, particularly shelf exams, to guide your learning journey.

If you start following these 10 pieces of advice from the beginning of shelf exams, by the time you take your USMLE Step 2, you will have mastered all its topics (and you may need a quick refresher, that’s it!).
During your 3rd year, use the IRIS steps: do UWorld questions subject by subject and take NBME clinical mastery for Shelf Exams.
Processing one subspeciality (chapter) at a time also improves clarity and efficiency — a lean-learning principle as opposed to batch processing. Isn’t shelf preparation automatic portioning?
Note: A 1–2-month time frame for USMLE preparation doesn’t typically give you enough time to follow ALL the IRIS steps. Also, during this time, a common example of batch processing occurs where students generate a practice-question block choosing all the system topics in UWorld instead of honing in and tackling one topic at a time.

8. Get a USMLE coach

All athletes have coaches; why don’t we?
You can get online USMLE tutoring/mentoring or seek a well-qualified USMLE tutor through your university.
There is no shame in asking an expert for help to improve any areas of weakness. When I go on my snowboarding trips, I always seek a few snowboarding lessons to accelerate my learning process.
Another shameless ad — I tutor on the Wyzant online platform. Here is a link to a $40 OFF for your first class.
I also do free weekly 1-hr Zoom sessions (Wednesday at 6 pm EST) on “how to get better at tackling USMLE questions” that anybody can participate in— here is the link.
Has there ever been any Olympic athlete who won a gold medal without the help of a coach?

9. Take care of your USMLE vessel (YOU!)

Take proper care of your physical and mental health -Since I love mnemonics, here’s another one! SEE well to do USMLE well: Sleep, Eat, and Exercise:
  • Sleep: at least 7–8 hours every day to recharge your body at night (Don’t partially charge your phone overnight only to run out of battery by noon)
  • Eat healthy foods
  • Exercise regularly

10. Always take the shortest path

There might be an infinite number of ways to go from point A to point B, but there is only one shortest path.
Finding the shortest path frees up some time to do other activities in our limited number of hours in a given day. So try to maximize efficiency.
Perhaps, the shortest path to achieving high scores on USMLE is to start following these 10 pieces of advice NOW !!
I hope this short thread on “how to learn!!” will help you on your road to residency!


Exam question schema: — In some USMLE questions, the question creators add a detail that tries to derail you through a red herring. Examples: “A family history of a neurological disorder in a case that sounds like chronic tuberculous meningitis,” “a recent camping trip history in a case that appears to be Neisseria meningitis,” “ a malignant head tumor that was noticed after head trauma” etc.
So in most USMLE questions, — you need the following schematic understanding:

2023.06.10 20:09 demondork224 [F4GM] Descending Into A Depraved And Perverse Labyrinth.

I’m 18+ and all characters and participants must be 18+
It's well known by now that a labyrinth can be found in the woods past the last village on the road. Tales tell of great riches within, though these tales rarely seem to agree on even the simplest details, and they're the only thing most people know about this place, and none have successfully returned to set the record straight.
There is a little more known about the labyrinth, known to a select few, a group which includes myself. The labyrinth is a maze of ever shifting connections. No map could ever be created, and anyone who finds themselves within would never be able to retrace their steps. Contained within the endless chambers are all sorts of environments, from the most expected, to the most out of place and fantastical areas. And all of this has been strung together by Talaghan, the goddess of depravity. See, the twisted catacombs aren't designed to protect a treasure by killing adventurers, they're designed to keep them there forever, bouncing between an infinite number of chambers which will have them committing a myriad of perverse acts, all for her pleasure.
And how do I know this? I am part of Talaghan's church, a worshiper of hers, and a follower of her beliefs. To us, this labyrinth isn't something to be feared, or a fortune to be won, it's a place of pilgrimage, to head into its depths is the ultimate act of worship, to dedicate oneself to perpetual acts of depravity to please Talaghan. And a pilgrimage I have decided to take.
I sit in the quaint tavern in the village at the end of the road, dressed in my religious garb. A black hooded robe that covers my entire body, but hugs much of it tightly, stretching over it as it is designed to do, showing off to anyone who looks on, and able to be removed very quickly indeed, by simply pulling it over one's head. I finish my drink, and tip the barmaid generously, since I doubt I'll have much use for the gold where I'm headed. The path into the woods is well trodden, with plenty of less informed individuals ready to try their luck, but I know what I'm walking into, and I couldn't be more excited.
Hopefully that has given you an idea of what I'm looking for here. The idea is that I'll be playing the woman who is headed into the labyrinth, with the express goal of worshipping her goddess by submitting to everything that goes on in their. As for you, well naturally you'll be in charge of whatever might be found in the labyrinth!
Kinks: cum, cum eating, cum food, cum play, cream pie,bdsm, bondage, forced, body writing, spanking, cuddling, degradation, rough partners, sizeplay, dominant partners, toys, multiple partners, spit roasting, mating press, full Nelson,frenching,rimming,body oil,bestiality,monsters,tentacles,water sports,wax play,sex machines,being filmed,cosplay,NTR,petplay,exhibitionism and biting and pretty much anything that isn’t my limits
Scat,gore,vore,hyper sizes,necro and vomit
If that's of interest to you, please get in touch at Demondork on Kik and come with any questions you have, clarifications you need and ideas you'd like to share. Just please do more than just tell me you're interested. Don't worry about responding slowly/late, I still want to hear from you. Finally, please no chat requests, I will simply ignore them.

Preamble: Yes I KNOW I messed up my speed flip, yes this is a bot I'm playing against, and yes I'm playing a season. I'm trying to get all the achievements so I need to play season. And for me playing w Ripper, scoring 10 goals using the car against bots is also an accomplishment. Anyway yeah, looky here.
So I have been out of the RL loop for a while now so I don't know if this is a thing, so please don't get mad if it is lol. At the very least it looks clean. If it is not a thing then I actually have a theory. I think when you speed flip into this quick wave dash you maintain almost all your momentum (No duh) but you also go a bit further with it, which could help w recover from a lost 50/50 kickoff.

What metal would be best?
Hi All I make lamps as a hobby and every now and again I need to make some metal moving parts or other small metal pieces for the project. Recently I needed one such thing to that the shade could be moved (basic drawing attached)
Having no milling machine I thought I'd use a piece of aluminium as it's soft and I thought easy to work with. Turned out I had to do most of the work with hand tools. Because of the original shape jigsaw wasn't helpful. Angle grinder didn't help either as. Metal got soft and it I couldn't cut it.
I spent two days cutting it until I got it to desired shape. My hand nearly fell off.
What other metal can I use which is easy enough to work with? As I work mostly in wood I don't have many metal cutting machines. And I usually need small pieces so large saws won't do the trick.

2023.06.10 20:09 Anonymous_666999 Aita for being “mean” to my sibling?

(sorry for the format i’m on mobile) Im not sure if this should go here in aita, but that’s where it’s going.
My (15) sibling (18) is the biggest bully i’ve ever encountered. I’ll be using the name Kevin for this story. Kevin likes to call me a Dumbass all the time. No matter what I do I’m a dumbass. When we were little Kevin would chase me around the house threatening to kill me. My other brother (20) we’ll call him James, had to literally sit in them. My sibling would degrade me, hit me, and even once threw a brush at me and gave me a black eye. Kevin manipulated me to tell my parents it was the cat. (don’t ask me why they believed it) Kevin loved to torment me, by just messing with me and manipulating me not to tell my parents. There were many times i had to lock myself in the bathroom. Kevin used to be on medication around the age of 15 and that helped soooo much. But they got pregnant and had to stop the medication. (they terminated) and haven’t been on medication since. and they’ve gotten back to what it was before. Kevin likes to use me as a punching bag (mentally), they have to do dishes? be mad at Troy (me). I have to wake them up? be mad at Troy. They wake up on their own? Theyre mad at troy. so one day I stuck up for myself and Kevin got mad, They said “THEY ALWAYS DO THIS” (me being “mean” but i was just sticking up for myself) my parents basically just say that i should stick up for myself more. And Kevin has a dog that sleeps in their room, but Kevin likes to go to their friends house (i think of the friend as my sibling). So who has to watch the dog?? ME. Don’t get me wrong i love that dog but they go away like 4 times a week. And I don’t get paid to dog sit for them. I’m doing online school because i literally cant go to school due to mental health. And Kevin LOVES to convince my mother to that i should go back. So this is the part where i am be ta. They did something dumb in front of my parents so i called Kevin an idiot bc i cant curse in front of my parents. And they got mad like always. They starting saying things like “you always do this, you’re always mean.” so i fired back “SO ARE YOU” and they got really pissed. And yelled some more so i went and got my phone out of their room and they said “see they always do that, we get in a fight and they act like everything is ok!” but in reality i was getting my phone to go to my room. so aita?

2023.06.10 20:09 maclirr Safe to leave car parked on wicklow gap road?

Hey 👋 Irish guy here, planning to walk a section of the St Kevin's Way pilgrim trail tomorrow (Sunday). The whole 26km is a bit long so I was planning to leave the car parked on the wicklow gap road in a layby or Coillte trailhead somewhere near Ballinagee Bridge (cutting the walk in half). I'd get the LocalLink 183 bus back from Glendalough later and ask the driver to let me off there.
Wondering if anyone has done anything similar. Is it a good idea to leave a car parked on that road? I've heard of break-ins on similar roads (the Sally gap road by Lough Tay is notorious). And is it a good idea to rely on that bus?

2023.06.10 20:09 GINJABRAD State of the game review in 2023 by a experienced early access player.

to start a little about me, I have played almost all pvp games on every platform for almost a decade now. I have killed all the top leaderboard players In this game at least once with a zero to hero M16 build I use against full meta builds including clans and vigor partners. I have a pretty good understanding on how the game plays with it's various designs, from hunters to raincoats. For me the worst part of the game currently is the broken headshot multiplier that leads to random outcomes from full auto fire even if you were more consistent and also when used in parity with terrible network performance that I'll discuss later on. The second frustration is the radiated air drop system, you want people to go for it by making it green (still not enough btw) but allow people to make it into a kill box trap and there isn't any way to know it's radiated before picking it up either ?!? Why would I ever touch it again when there's a high chance it's double radiated and I couldn't make it to an exit I'm near with two iodine. People I watch radiate it every time and ignore it because why would you choose anything else when this choice is so much stronger than the others. The portable signal, armour, disinfectant, radiation grenades are meta just fyi because they are too strong and have not once been adjusted based on community feedback. Why do fold consumables with a full shelter only take a few minutes but a gold gun takes days. They are both best in class items but are balanced completely different which is a contradiction those consumables should take hours at least to be properly balanced. Radiation grenades allowing people to permanently ruin large areas of these small maps, pois and crates with radiation especially when they are hunters with finished shelters and don't need the poi loot. This allows and premotes toxicity/griefing from older players to the newer ones with no opportunity to counter. I also want proning to be balanced by making the initial prone animation sound louder when you first prone out cause people can straight disappear in this game because proning has no audio cues unless you move. Also along those lines performance mode and sniping have a new visual exploit. Most players are running this new setting which allows a significant advantage by not rendering in foliage at distance. So you think you're on grass/bush covered hillside but for them it's a broken green texture map and you are laying down in the open. Also sniping has a bug allowing you to fire a shot spam change weapons and fire a AR almost instantly while they are frozen In place also once swapped it automatically reloads you sniper with no animation. How could you miss that? You're developing a new sniper and having the team/testers using it and not one person noticed or reported it? This game seriously needs a project health season like R6/BF with a core focus group of playes that play game as intended. I think instead of full wipes just implement stash limits to limit people to a certain number of weapons/consumables and reset the material each season. Ghost of tabor a similar gamein gameplay design are going to implemented a similar system the never wipe room In their armoury which is a great idea for this style of game. This would protect a limited armoury but stop the hoarding exploit that older players who grinded more abuse to run higher price loadouts more often. I also want just like that guy said in the stream to break down weapons into parts. Once I have two golds there is little reason to stay in the raid because you simply can't pick up the loot. Nothing worse than leaving a l96 etc on the ground when weapon parts are already in the game. Remove the jump shotting for these reasons, your ping in your game is unacceptable and higher than market standard/average and your matchmaking algorithm with a small player base best seen at the end of seasons forces a unreasonable amount of cross region matches at 150ms+. This level of network performance is unacceptable and makes the game have severe dsync and peekers advantage issues ruining its competitive integrity especially paired with a 3rd person perspective to line up and prefire. My last issue is instead of taking 2 years to make myren as nice as it is I think map reworks/variations to limit the repetition of the base maps especially the maps with literally no buildings or decent pois I'm talking to you long range maps and the two with those terrible bunker assets that are basically kill boxes with no way to counter once inside so people who just prone and wait you out listening for your footsteps through 6 feet of concrete get the win by playing passive.That's like 4-5 maps that could be improved over one new one in a similar time period. Just like BF2042, I think much work could be done with base maps as well as map audio occlusion (for example you can hear people on fabrisk In the tunnel through the mountains side) how is that possible and accepted? I don't make videos or posts but this is my opinion on the state of the game and this team mid 2023. Maybe I missed a few things and let me know I'm open to discussing things further. I'm trying to be positive to avoid moderation so I would appreciate the same In the comments thanks in advance.

2023.06.10 20:08 Stock-Aidme AITA for using my roommates car?

So my truck has a blown head gasket and it’s been hard for me to get around lately. I have to be using Uber All the time and constantly be asking for rides. My roommate went on a trip to Arizona this weekend and he left the keys to his car. My friends all wanted to hang out and go drinking last night but no one wanted to use their ride so I suggested let’s just take my roommates ride. He won’t notice if I just put in gas to about the amount it was before. Also he’s really chill and lenient about stuff. I known this guy for like 2 years so we are sort of close. Anyways we were all having a blast last night, dancing to music in the car, hollering and speeding alittle bit. Well one of my imbeciles I was with decided to put us in her Snapchat story of us dancing really hard in his car while I was speeding really fast swerving thru traffic. For clarification the only reason I was driving like that was because the teriyaki boyz song from need for speed came on and it made me really excited to speed. His car is really fast too so it’s perfect for that specific scenario. No one got hurt and we didn’t get pulled over. Everything is fine until I started getting All sorts of texts from my roommate. He is pissed at me for taking his car without his permission and driving so wreckless. In my defense the roads weren’t crowded, I didn’t drink that much, and I been driving for 10 years on these roads. He is saying he might move out because of me but I need him to help pay rent. What is everyone’s thoughts?

2023.06.10 20:08 Trick-Use6124 I need help creating a quirk that would pair well with a light based quirk.

I’m creating an OC that works for AFO and now has two quirks.
The first quirk is photon augmentation which allows the user to absorb light particles through their skin and release and shape it in a number of different ways including as flashes of light, laser beams, weapons, shields, armor and long tentacles most of which are made out of hard light. The downside of this quirk is that the user is limited to how much light is in the given area and that they must have exposed skin showing to absorb the light.
I’m hoping to circumvent the downside of the original quirk by giving them a second one that directly creates light thus giving them a near infinite amount of energy to work on. I also want this quirk to be powerful on its own and to help the user in ways other than just providing a light source.
My idea so far is the ability to create small “stars” using their vitality. These stars will be about the size of a baseball and can be moved telepathically. The user can cause these stars to go supernova creating a powerful explosion.
While I find this second quirk fine I would love to hear other quirk ideas that would go great with photon augmentation.

2023.06.10 20:08 kainvinosec Games to avoid on the Switch because of poor performance or issues?

Love the Switch so much and so many massive AAA games run great on it, but every once in a while, you find a game that just doesn't do well at all. Frame dips, bad aliasing, latency, bugs, etc.

So, help me out by answering the following three questions.

So far, my biggest 2 are:
LEGO City Undercover OLED Frame dips and bad motion blur
LEGO Worlds OLED Same frame dips and bad motion blur (maybe a problem with other LEGO games too? I've only tried these...)

I know I've encountered others, but I can't remember off the top of my head. Will update if I think of some. Curious to hear what everyone else has found as well!

2023.06.10 20:08 BlissfulBlueBell Will there ever be a day where I won't have a hard time leaving people?

I understand exactly where it comes from. It stems from my relationship with my shitty dad. I remember as kid, anytime I told him how I felt he would gaslight me and play victim. Next thing you know, I'm consoling him even though he was the one who made me cry in the first place.
I wasn't allowed to be anything but happy and obedient to him. I always ended up thinking I was in the wrong for feeling upset. That I deserve to get punished for not agreeing with him. I always craved his attention and affection, and he weaponized that against me.
Stonewalling me, yelling at me, or sending me away whenever I did something he didn't like. And now I'm taking this into my relationships. I've had guys say really mean things to me or just plain neglect me, yet I never am the one to leave. They always leave me first and it just reinforces this horrible mindset that I am inherently defective and unworthy of love and care.
That every guy I meet is a selfish asshole that's going to leave me. That my needs, wants, desires, hopes, and dreams don't matter. That only men in my life and everything they want matters. Im always 2nd place..I'm always an after thought. I'm easily replaceable. I always feel like I'm on thin ice. I can never just relax and enjoy connection.
It happens with friends too but it's the worst with romantic interests. Will therapy fix this? I always thought my biggest fear was betrayal, abandonment, or whatever. And they are genuine fears. But underneath that, I'm actually terrified of not being able to walk away when I need to. I put up with so much of people's crap. What if a guy starts putting his hands on me?
Will I make excuses and stay? Will I stay if I get cheated on? Will I stay if they're verbally abusive? Will I stay if they lie to me? Use my money? Financially abuse me? Control me? I don't know what my threshold is. I've been told I'm strong for what I dealt with as a kid. But im strong in the wrong directions. I should not be proud of withstanding abuse. I want to be strong enough to walk away, not strong enough to take multiple kinds of beatings (metaphorically and possibly physically) and not walk away.

2023.06.10 20:08 riana_01 I'm only dumping this here since I don't really got anyone close enough to share them with

One thing I learnt from my parents was how not to live my life. I'm not really "living the life" either it's mostly pathetic and I'm aware of that no shame. But I definitely know what not to do after I do get my life back on track. And my parents also gave me the best relationship advice anyone can get. You know you hear these people and read comments giving advice when to leave when there's a toxic relationship or what are the red flags. They only tell you and you read words you don't really get it first hand. But I had the blessing to get those first hand by watching not by reading or listening.
I got a brother he's the sanest person in my family. He raised me literally. My brother as my father figure. You think this is sad but let me tell you he's the best father there can be. He doesn't have a kid yet but I know he'll be the best dad ever. Atleast he was for me, it's as if God said "oops i forgot to give you a proper dad. Here I hope this helps." Raised by an elder sibling my whole life lmao. When he left home after he graduated I was devastated but also happy for him. Now my mom was there for me. Like she's the best of the two partners here. She gave up her dignity and respect for us. Now I know she tried to set an example as to how to maintain the marriage but honestly I really don't see it. Tbh she's really naive her whole life she has been like that. She endured. My entire dad's family gave shit to her and she endured because of us. She sacrificed but I honestly don't know if it was good or bad. I can't judge here since for me she has been my superhero the savior in my family. My mom comes first always and then bro. If my mom couldn't handle something she used to pass it bro and somehow I always listened to him. Now when it comes to my dad. Tbh I never really knew him until he retired from office. I used to be very oblivious to what was going in the house. Maybe my bro kept me distracted cuz after he left I always used to hear fights and bullshit drama and screaming. It's as if I was in an entirely different household. I asked my bro and he said well it always has been like that. You never noticed?
Anyway I plan on doing many things after I get my first salary. First would be to get my mom a ticket to her hometown where she can be with her mom and probably buy her things she never got from her husband. For example, a lipstick.
Now this post my seem like I'm villainising my dad which I don't really intend to. It's just some of the truth i faced in my life because these are the memories i have and these were the things I saw and heard in my household. But I love my dad regardless. Maybe it's just he doesn't love us back the same way but he's my dad how can I not? He worries about me and yk taught me things like a dad would. He just never loved or cared enough to show i guess. That's why my bro always came first because he was there for me more than my dad he taught me more things and he showed me how much he loved me. Even in school parents teachers meet it always used to be my mom who showed up never my dad. My dad never kept any info about my academics. Always my mom. The one time maybe in 8th grade my mom couldn't come so my bro came to meet the teachers.
My bro has been there but also my dad on certain occasions. But it used to be mostly my bro so thats why I consider him more as my father figure. But that doesn't make my dad any less of a dad.
I request you all if you want to comment don't say anything bad about him. He has his own ways and I know him more than any of you guys. That's how he was raised by my grandma and he lives like that so nothing wrong. There's no bad or evil person in this rant just a morally gray area for me. I just wanted to share this to feel lighter. I can't share or talk about this to anyone i know personally so here it is.
If bad English please ignore since I wrote this on the spot.
