2023.06.08 10:54 PuttingthingsinmyNAS Ice Shards and legendary aspects

One of the Ice Shards guides says this:
> These Shards do not benefit from‍ Elementalist's Aspect or ‍Edgemaster’s Aspect.
> Elementalist's Aspect: Core or Mastery Skills cast at or above 100 Mana gain a [20.0 - 40.0%] increased Critical Strike Chance.
> ‍Edgemaster’s Aspect: Skills deal up to [10- 20%] increased damage based on your available Primary Resource when cast, receiving the maximum benefit while you have full Primary Resource.
Where is this coming from? The guide itself even says to use the Elementalist's Aspect on your amulet
EDIT: nvm it's talking about the enchantment not the actual Skill

2023.06.08 10:51 jenhairvietnam The best leave in conditioner for hair extensions

I have tried a lot of products. There are several factors to consider when choosing a good leave-in conditioner for hair extensions, including:
  1. Quality of Ingredients
The quality of ingredients used in a hair extensions care product is critical. Look for leave-in conditioners for hair extensions that use natural, nourishing ingredients such as coconut oil, argan oil, shea butter, and jojoba oil. Avoid products that contain harsh chemicals like sulfates, which can strip the hair of its natural oils and cause damage.
  1. Moisturizing properties
Hair extensions require regular moisturizing to prevent them from becoming dry and brittle. Look for products that contain ingredients that help to lock in moisture, such as glycerin, aloe vera, and panthenol.
  1. Detangling properties
Hair extensions can quickly become tangled and knotted, so it’s important to choose a product that helps to detangle the hair. Look for products that contain ingredients like hydrolyzed wheat protein or silk amino acids, which help to smooth and soften the hair, making it easier to comb through.
Overall, the best leave-in conditioner for hair extensions should be gentle, nourishing, and moisturizing, with a pH balance that is specifically designed for extensions.
"Did you know that hair extensions are all the rage these days? They are super versatile and make it easy to upgrade your hair. But, they can get damaged over time. Plus, buying new high-quality extensions can be pretty expensive, which not everyone can afford. Therefore, people often look for ways to care for their extensions rather than throwing them away. One of the best ways to keep your extensions healthy is by using a leave in conditioner.
In this article, Jen Hair will provide the best leave in conditioner for hair extensions so you can make an informed decision when choosing one. Curious? Let’s jump into the detailed reviews!"

If you could replace the Original 8 World Warriors in SF6 (minus Ryu, Ken and Chun-Li), what characters would you replace them with?
I recall a few people criticizing SF6 on the fact that they brought back the OG 8 from SF2 and how that sorta conflicts with the whole "new generation" approach they're doing again with SF6, and while I'm personally not partial to either side of the argument I certainly am intrigued on the possibility of other characters taking their places.
Obviously Ryu, Ken, and Chun-Li are practically staples of the roster while the rest, with a few possible exceptions like Zangief or Guile, can be sat out with no big complaints from a majority of the fan base.
For the sake of argument however, if Guile, Zangief, Dhalsim, E. Honda, and Blanka were to not be part of SF6's base roster, what other characters from the franchise could you see taking their positions as base roster characters?

2023.06.08 10:50 wahooo92 I [29f] fear weed is ruining our relationship but he [29m] doesn't see it. Am I overreacting?

My partner and I of 6 years are avid stoners. In the past 2 years living together it's developed a bit into a daily habit. We live very successful lives so we figured it's not that bad. I don't drink and he seldom does, once a week or fortnight. Our general rule is we don't smoke during the 9-5 but most evenings and weekends.
However the past year we've been having these weird arguments over nothing. Sometimes I feel like this tenseness in the house and I feel like I have to be perfect and placate my bf or he'll get really upset. Bf says he feels the same vice versa. The other day we had an hour long argument because I didn't say yes to a plan "enthustiacally enough" (bc I was thinking slowly... bc I was high... but he didn't take that). Even being sober in the morning doesnt help much bc I feel there's background irritability from recently being high. I know irritability is a factor bc by the end of the day we both openly crave a joint bc of how annoyed/stressed we are.
However, none of this happens when we're on holiday. Which conveniently is the only time we don't have any weed because we're abroad. On holidays our relationship is as good as ever and I always chalked it up to a lack of stress, but that doesn't explain how this irritability manifests on weekends where we have 0 responsibilities.
It all came to last week. We had just come back from a wonderful holiday week. We unpacked, and then had a small zoot. Within half an hour, tensions were high and I felt like I was walking on eggshells. It's been a week (of daily smoking) and this tension hasn't subsided and yesterday we had an argument bc he didn't hear me say "goodnight love you" and wouldn't take me saying I already said it but nonetheless repeating it louder, he was just adamant I was lying and never initially said it (which apparently means I hate him) and it felt frankly paranoid.
I've brought this up with my bf in a way where I'm not putting faults on any one person, but just said that I noticed that I don't think weed is good for our dynamic and I think it's causing stress and anxiety in both of us. He got really annoyed and said weed didn't affect his judgement and not to "blame weed" for "pissing [him] off". He said this is a way to blame him and absolve myself of culpability for annoying him. He said it has nothing to do with weed and that I'm making correlations where there are none. I pointed out how a few years ago he quit for 3 months as he developed full blown panic issues on weed, and he said they're solved and are adamant they haven't come back.
In the end, I just said I'm personally quitting because I don't think it's conducive to a harmonious house or my own mental health, at least not for now. He got annoyed saying I'm being "extreme" and that I'm "punishing" him for yesterday's argument. I wanna clarify that I don't think weed is a bad drug, but I think our long term abuse of it hasn't been good for us personally.
I want to know if he's right and I'm being unreasonable and blaming it on weed is wrong. Am I being too hard, is it even possible for weed to cause these stress problems? I'm very lost and I hate to lose the only drug I have (I can't even drink caffeine lol), but it's worth it for the relationship, but I'm worried and baffled that it seems like he doesn't think the same.
Tldr: both habitual daily smokers, Ive clocked it may be the root of relationship issues bc we have few problems when sober for extended periods (ie holidays). I think it causes tension and poor critical thinking / relationship management. I've decided to quit for the sake of the relationship, bf thinks I'm being ridiculous and that it's not a problem and that neither of us should quit.

2023.06.08 10:49 Zagaroth [No Need For A Core?] - CH 091: Serpent Time

Cover Art <<Previous Start Next >>
The first serpentine dragon form he was going to work on was a variant of river drake. Preferring as always to grow and change existent creatures rather than make new ones from raw mana, Mordecai sent his mind searching among the small creatures that had become part of their ecology. Snakes were obvious choices, as well as most lizards, but less reptilian creatures could work as well.
True Dragons were not mammals, birds, reptiles, or any other common animal type. Yet all of those and more were capable of becoming draconoids, and the draconoid races often had some potential to evolve into True Dragons. So what made the difference? How did things that were not related species become related species like that?
As far as Mordecai could tell, it was a case of a faith-like interaction with a concept that every sentient race held. It reinforced itself as well, for True Dragons certainly would always claim that they could recognize another True Dragon compared to a mere draconoid, and for something like this they counted as being on the ‘mortal’ side of the equation. It probably didn’t hurt that the primary creator deity of this reality was a dragon, creating a very strong focal point of the concept of dragon.
It didn’t take him long to find a selection of animals that resonated positively with the concept he had in his mind, and he drew those creatures to the fifth floor. It didn’t matter that they were not all the same species, the transformations would fix that. Changing a creature was magnitudes easier than creating one, and reforging them into being the exact same species was only a little harder than starting with the same base.
The biggest issue with starting from scratch was not the physical structure, that was only a little bit harder than creating some of the items available as treasures. No, it was holding everything together at the same moment and filling it with synchronized animus and spirit while kick-starting every single chemical process at once in proper harmony. He had vague memories of having tried this before, just enough to have been left as a warning of ‘don’t do this’ by his more complete self.
Oh, if he wanted constructs or something relatively simple, creatures that had animus but not true life and spirit, those weren’t too hard. The bookwyrms and biting words were examples of that. Though creating constructs might become harder soon if his suspicions were right. Well, he’d have to wait and see on that.
These thoughts only took a portion of his concentration as he reworked his volunteers to match his vision. For these river drakes he used a classic sea serpent/leviathan model, a long sinuous body with various frilly fins running along its length, a narrow head and snout with sharp teeth at one end and a flat tail for speed and maneuverability at the other. But that wasn’t enough to make them a real threat to travelers, even if they were three feet long.
The first customization he made was some minor chameleon abilities. Nothing magical in this case, just the same ability to subtly shift the structure of their scales to reflect different colors of light that many normal creatures had, if slightly more efficiently designed. The effects were enhanced by the fact that the waterways were going to be filled with floating motes of light, making it hard to accurately measure depth and distance by vision alone.
And of course, any quality drake needed an important draconic feature, a Breath Weapon. In this case, he gave them a powerful, narrow jet of water that could pierce many materials as well as potentially knock foes back.
Now for mobility. They were already great swimmers of course, but he wanted more than that. He’d already made sure their scales and skin wouldn’t dry out easily, now he gave them a minor flight ability. It was closer to being a magically enhanced jump with a little bit of levitation for extra distance and a soft landing, and just a tiny bit of mid-air guidance. They could do this from water or land, and they had the sharp teeth and powerful snake-like musculature to act as constrictors, though they were too small to do so to a typical humanoid. Their land speed was pretty comparable to most snakes as well, though their side fins interfered somewhat.
There was a final important touch that wouldn’t affect anything in the immediate future but would come into play when they had more levels. These two to three-foot-long drakes were juveniles for the species he had designed, and he would be creating habitats for their later life stages as the dungeon gained more levels, and eventually some spawning grounds back in the hidden pools along with a way for them to get there in their adult forms.
Mordecai now turned his attention to the second serpentine form he wanted for this floor. Winged Serpents. Oh, not actual Couatl, these were not divine creatures after all, but he modeled them on the famous celestial serpents, giving their snake-like bodies both rainbow-colored feathers and scales as well as growing a pair of powerful, wide wings. They wouldn’t be able to soar the skies elegantly, but what they needed was maneuverability and the ability to leap upward in a quick burst.
Instead of free-roaming creatures like the river drakes, he made these pack hunters, and created a special mushroom for their nests: These were low, squat structures that grew from the ceiling, with a structure that was soft enough for tunnels to be chewed into it, but with enough tensile strength to continue to cling to the ceiling so long as the tunnels were not excessive.
From either these nests or from the tops of the mushroom trees they could keep watch for potential prey, and called out to each other with ultrasonic cries to communicate, the tones too high for most creatures to hear. They also used a separate set of clicks in that range for echolocation, allowing them to ‘see’ no matter how dark their environment was.
In order to capitalize on this, he gave them a pair of abilities. The first was a simple globe of darkness spell, about 40 feet in diameter that they could cast on an area about once an hour. This was readily countered with any sufficiently strong light-themed spell, but it could still cause problems for unprepared groups.
The second ability was related, but not so easily countered. Once a day, they could release a billowing cloud of dark ‘smoke’ from underneath their scales. This was a chemical reaction instead of a spell, and was a strong irritant to most species, creating effects not unlike that of pepper oil. The combination made it hard to see them and was extremely distracting, but also shorter-lived than the darkness spell. This was generally going to be used to enable the winged serpent to escape when injured.
Their primary combat ability was a poisoned bite. These were ambush predators, and typically would dive in on prey and deliver several bites before retreating, and would repeat the tactic as needed. And for a final touch, he gave them a razor-sharp tail tip, more than capable of flaying flesh and enabling them to eat prey in pieces, unlike a snake.
Now, he knew what he wanted to do for the two ‘warring’ factions already, but the ‘wildlife’ didn’t feel quite fleshed out yet, and he wanted to nail that down first. Well, he had water and air covered, and the warring factions would cover the surface of the land well enough, so why not something from underground?
While snakes could fulfill this role too, Mordecai felt that it would be overdoing it at this point. And definitely nothing plant-like, he’d done enough with the mushroom already. So a burrowing animal of some sort. Hmm. Let's see what his options were.
Well, no burrowing birds, he already had a flying challenge in a dense forest, he didn’t need more. Rabbits and polecats have been used in other levels already before even considering what his warring factions were going to be like. In the end he had two choices he liked, and decided that the mammal would probably work better with the warring factions, so he developed the other into a proper predator instead.
Not that it wasn’t already, but it was a little small for humans, and he could make some other improvements as well. Mordecai began channeling magic into a selection of trap door spiders to enlarge them to about the size of a horse and set to work ‘improving’ them. The first step was to make their poison more potent, namely into a mix of paralytic agents and digestive enzymes. Then he enhanced their silk weaving abilities, giving them different web types by adding ‘normal’ webs, thrown net-webs, and the ability to lay out sensory threads on the ground in addition to using webbing to reinforce their layers and create the trapdoors.
Of course, having them only use ground lairs would be boring. So Mordecai made sure they could dig into some of the larger mushroom trees to create lairs there too. Getting through this floor was going to require some proper paranoia. Now, while both the river drakes and the feathered serpents were going to be able to come in great numbers, the giant spiders were tougher foes, so he was going to limit them to hunting in pairs. This still wasn’t normal spider behavior, but that would help make things creepier and keep people on their toes.
He had a nice selection of fungal hazards and dangerous creatures, so now it was time to start working on the two war camps and their denizens.

2023.06.08 10:45 exsea Devils Advocate for Jocelyn

With all the backlash she received, even myself going hard on her. As I followed her backlash, I suddenly remembered something.
I am now a hypocrite for going hard criticizing her.
Why? Because I advocate comedy clubs. ANYTHING goes in comedy clubs. I kind of forgot that her performance was in a comedy club. not exactly meant for public consumption.
In a comedy club, everything SHOULD be assumed as a performance. nothing should be taken too seriously.
the issue here is her performance was shared ONLINE.
i for one will say that her bringing up MH70 was in VERY poor taste. and the way she bashed malaysia reeks of a lot of spite.
but that said. it was her skit.
who knows, she made it to intentionally stir up peoples emotions? if that was her intention, good job for her, it worked.
to be clear, i am defending her RIGHT to joke about anything and everything in a comedy club. however, freedom of speech does not mean free from consequence.
a comedy club is still semi public space. the audience can still react. to me i feel that i disagree with her content. but i shouldnt need to be so outraged. instead of feeling pissed i should just recognize that its content that i disagree with. she could be joking and the joke could be in VERY POOR TASTE. and thats the end of it. if i dislike her, i dont go see her shows.
that should be good enough.

2023.06.08 10:44 Maladjusted_Ghost Ghost writer struggling with ghost editor

Does anyone else have problems with being hired by middle-men and having to deal with their editors/writers? I know it may sound hypocritical complaining about either side when I work both sides, but it's such a different and difficult experience than dealing with a writer or editor directly. I'm editing one book for a client, but he didn't write the book so I have to send edits to him, get re-writes back, re-do things, and do this over and over without knowing if any of my advice is getting across or even matter. I feel bad for the ghost writer too, because I don't want to undermine their ability to be paid or do their job, but the client's desire for a "perfect story" is supposed to be my focus.
Now I'm interviewing for a ghostwriting gig, and wrote a plot outline to start. I was told: "We give you an idea of the plot and characters. You can use what is given to you or deviate any way you see fit. It's just an idea." But then the client sent the work to an editor, who wrote a completely different outline basically criticizing me for deviating from one or two of the suggestions and giving me a rewrite full of plot holes. I'm also a developmental editor, so the fact that she did a full rewrite is a little confusing and insulting honestly. I would never presume to do that. But she also gave suggestions that don't make sense. Like, she wants me to give information exclusively in dialogue even though the requirement was a first person present tense story, and she criticized me for giving information through the character's narration.
I'm really tempted to say something to the client when I send my re-draft of the editor's re-draft. For one, I think she's working with a bad editor. And beside that, as a writer she's just giving me bad advice. But I'm worried about losing a lucrative ghostwriting contract. I know I probably just need to suck it up and work within the structure I was given, but it's very frustrating. Has anyone struggled with this and do you have any advice or thoughts?
Commiserations also accepted.

2023.06.08 10:44 shayney13 Came to Broadway from Down Under! 7 shows in 6 days!

Came to Broadway from Down Under! 7 shows in 6 days!
I was super lucky to be able to visit Broadway for the second time in my life (never thought it would ever be possible!) - I will give a quick rundown of the shows I saw and what I thought!

Thursday 25th May - &Juliet - 9/10
I got Rush tickets for &Juliet which were front row and honestly not too bad! I almost didn’t see this however had watched a slime tutorial back from when it was on the west end and had loved it and even though I have just moved to Aus from NZ and will hopefully be able to see it here I wanted to go into the tony’s seeing most of the nominated shows. The cast were excellent - especially betsy Wolfe and Melanie La Barrie and it’s just such a fun show! I’m not usually a huge fan of Jukebox musicals but I love the book of &Juliet and think it’s just very clever. It doesn’t take itself too seriously but also doesn’t feel like the songs are just chucked in there. I got to stage door and met most of the cast too who were all lovely!

Friday 26th May - Funny Girl - 8/10
Was great to see Lea Michele on broadway and she was absolutely phenomenal! I really enjoyed the show, thought the cast was great, I quite liked the story and the music as well so overall really enjoyed it. I got to meet Lea at stage door and she signed my playbill :)

Saturday 27th May - Kimberly Akimbo - 10/10
I was absolutely blown away by this show. It was hilarious and heartbreaking and the show that has stuck with me the most from this trip. The character depth, the themes, and the plot were all fantastic. I loved the score and the cast so much too. I had to stage door after my final Saturday show because I didn’t have time after my three show day but I got to meet Victoria, Bonnie, Justin, and Steve who were all lovely. I really hope this show sweeps the Tony’s because it’s phenomenal.

Saturday 27th May - Titanique - 8.5/10
This show was hilarious. I laughed so so so much. It was a great story, and a great time at the theatre. I don’t feel the score added much but maybe because I didn’t know all of the Celine Dion songs some things may have gone over my head. Overall an absolute blast!!

Saturday 27th May - Some Like it Hot - 8/10
I really enjoyed this show, despite not having super high expectations. This felt like a Broadway show, the dancing, the sets, everything about it was super well done. The cast were great and I enjoyed the story and found myself laughing a fair bit. I’m a big fan of SMASH so felt a little let down by the score - some of the songs felt like SMASH rejects or just blended in with each other but there were definitely some standouts. Overall a very very fun show! After rushing to the booth theatre to stage door there, I was able to come back and met Adrianna Hicks who was so lovely and J Harrison Ghee who looked like they would rather be anywhere else than there lol.

Side note: Three show day was hectic but doable! Even though KA started a little late I was still able to make it to Titanique, pee, and have plenty of time before it started (especially because it also started late) and then make it back for SLIH.

Sunday 28th May - Shucked - 8.5/10
I think I had my hopes a little too high for this show and ended up getting let down a little. On paper this show is right up my alley because I love the songwriters and country music (especially Kacey Musgrave’s, Maren Morris etc). Overall I enjoyed the story of this show, but I think the absolute high point is the score which I don’t hear many people talking about. I definitely may be biased because I love the songwriters but I adored the score it is absolutely beautiful. Alex Newell was phenomenal as well! I think the rest of the cast were also fantastic!
I think it was funny but no where near way funnier than most of what else I’d seen on Broadway and the other shows didn’t have to rely on one liners to do it. When Shucked was funny, it was funny, but when it fell flat you could tell. I don’t think this is inherently an issue but when it’s marketed as being the funniest show on Broadway, I was expecting it to be funnier than Kimberly Akimbo and SLIH which it was slightly, but not enough.
I don’t think this is an issue with the show, as much as my expectations and overall I had a blast and have Walls, woman of the world, friends, and independently owned on REPEAT. I was also very tired as had had a busy morning and was also stressed about getting to Taylor Swift after the show so that may have added to me not being in the best headspace for the show!
I stage doored and got to meet Kevin Cahoon who was lovely, Grey Hanson, also lovely and Traci Elaine Lee who played Maizy and was FANTASTIC!

Monday 29th May - Got to see 54 sings Kelly Clarkson which was iconic. My two loves, theatre and Kelly Clarkson coming together was amazing. And bucket list moment to go to 54 below!

Wednesday 31st May - Parade 8.5/10
Not sure why I picked the saddest show to end my trip, but I really enjoyed Parade. Michaela and Ben were phenomenal, as were the rest of the cast and the show was heartbreaking but wonderful. I really enjoyed it. Surprised this was the show that had the worst audience behaviour, people on phones, as soon as the show ended two 60ish year olds were prepping to get in a fight, all very distracting :(.

Overall I had an absolutely amazing trip and felt so privileged to get to see all these shows!! (Also got to see Ham4Ham with SLIH, Shucked, and Parade!!!


Bonus: My shows from my last US trip

Dear Evan Hansen 10/10 - Saw this two weeks before it closed - had been wanting to watch it for forever and I absolutely loved it and wasn’t let down. I know the show has it’s critics but honestly I love it.

Hadestown 10/10 - Loved this show so so so much don’t know what else to say

The devil wears Prada (in Chicago) - 5/10 - Honestly don’t remember much, the music wasn’t very memorable and the show was ‘fine’ I guess. Hopefully they’ve managed to make some changes!

Mean Girls tour in Houston - 6.5/10 I enjoyed the show when I wasn’t incredibly anxious I was getting permanent hearing damage from how loud the sound was. Nothing crazy to write home about but I enjoyed it!

The Prom on tour in LA (twice) 9/10 - I love this show so much - it was beautiful, hilarious, so much fun. You could tell the budget for the tour wasn’t too high because the sets were pretty lacklustre but I loved this wee show and the cast were amazing.

2023.06.08 10:44 piccran Mom is moving in with another woman

I live in a single mom household, and my mom has asked me if I’m fine with us moving in with another woman and her son (she’s also a single mom). She came out to me years ago and I know she has been dating women. However, this lady she wants to move in with, I’ve only met her three times, and the last time was going on a cruise together for 6 days. I feel anxious about this as I am not sure how this will turn out, especially they have only dated for a few months, so this whole thing feels very rushed.
Also, the other lady is originally from Korea, and my family is Japanese descent, so there has been some tension when we talked about history and she mentioned how Japan colonised her country… which has nothing to do with me.
Anyways, I hope some smart folks here can give me some advice on how to deal with this. I’ve been following this community for a while, and I’m on day 61 of my streak.

Heavy Equipment Operators - Interstate Heavy Equipment
Heavy equipment operators are paving the way for construction projects. As a result, the demand for their skills is twice as high as for other types of work. The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that jobs for heavy machinery operators will grow by 10% between 2018 and 2028, which is twice the average rate compared to other jobs.

What Does Heavy Equipment Operators Do?

Many machines are needed to prepare structures, including felling trees, moving dirt and materials, and digging holes.
Operating Engineers use excavators with buckets, scoops, and shovels to move dirt and materials such as concrete pipes. It may be easy, but you need to know more than you think. Make sure the bucket is attached correctly and secured to the crane. Determining the maximum lifting weight of a crane is critical.
Paving and Surface Operators operate equipment that spreads concrete and asphalt on roads and car parks.
Pile Driver Operators use machines with large hammers to install large concrete, wooden, or metal piles (beams) into the deep ground to support structures such as bridges and foundations.

Other Job Requirements

Heavy equipment operators must clean and maintain the equipment. They are always expected to handle basic equipment repairs. Operators must adhere to safety standards. A critical aspect of safety is the effective communication of ground personnel using manual or audible signals.
Operators are responsible for documenting and reporting equipment issues to the project manager. The same equipment from different manufacturers is the same, but not the same design. Therefore, heavy equipment operators should consult the manufacturer’s manual for the specific machine you are using to find out how you can handle important tasks such as emergency shutdown. In addition, the manuals provide instructions for essential tasks, such as determining the maximum lifting weight of the machine in various situations.
The technology has become more integrated into heavy equipment. For example, the operator can monitor the weight of the cargo in real-time from an onboard system such as the Cat Payload. Likewise, a worker checked the load on a computer screen in a cab. Another skill that a heavy technician must master today is the use of hardware and software.

Work Environment

That’s not an excellent job at the table. You have to love the outdoors and be willing to work in any weather. Even if excessive rain or snow stops the construction project, it should not be suitable for the company to lose volunteers due to delays. To become a heavy machine operator, you need to get warm – and relaxed. Although most heavy machinery operators set a typical 40-hour week, the hours may be non-standard. It would help if you also prepare to work day and night, even on Sundays. Some employers may need over time. A pleasant advantage, however, is the extra salary.


Did we mention it’s not an excellent job in the office? Building areas are dangerous areas. As a heavy equipment operator, you hold people’s lives on earth in your hands. Knowing and understanding safety procedures is as important as knowing which handle to pull. Check your machine and surroundings before turning the key. If something goes wrong, a brave operator confronts the project manager and refuses to operate the machine.

2023.06.08 10:40 ZETS13 Drama movies or adventure type movies where characters fall in love along the way?

I’ve always been a sucker for films where characters join each other on an adventure or such, and then down the road they fall for each other. Some examples I can think of is Far and Away with Nicole Kidman and Tom Cruise. Another film I watched starring Christian Bale Hostiles was really dark. It slightly played into this which was unexpected. Is there any more films similar? Whether it’s a light hearted comedy, adventure, crime, etc movie or darker and more drama centred films? I like period piece films too and Medieval, I don’t mind recommendations in that category either.

2023.06.08 10:33 omelahr5 Binance is not ftx, fact!

Credit to Joe Foot for his insight.
I know stuff is scary but remain calm and collected and analyze the facts.
Fact #1: Binance is not FTX. Not even close. FTX had an average daily volume of 3-4B with the ocasional peak of +10B during the bull run. Binance is over 10B and routinely broke +100B during the bull run. Their revenue is at least 5-7x that of FTX yet people pooled them in the same category. Insanity
Fact #2: it took only RUMORS and speculation to trigger a 5% bank run on FTX for them to shut down withdrawals and panic. For contrast Binance had 22% of assets removed a few months ago (from 71B to around 55B) and they didn't panic or even break a sweat. In fact got interviewed the same day and said people could withdraw 100% of their assets from Binance if needed. He is either an epic master bluffer or he sleeps well at night knowing funds are safu.
Fact #3: Binance grew faster than most companies in modern history. Occasionally those companies will move fast and break things and yes, even break the law such as Uber, Facebook, etc. in the case of Binance they grew without major VC and mostly using ICO funds. They have no bank debt or major stakeholders and for that, the system is shocked. Binance was cash flow positive from month 1 they opened operations and people just can't believe it. But in reality the ICO model has a lot of advantages over the traditional funding methods and again the system is shocked.
Fact #4: when regulators go after every major player in an industry, in 9/10 times the problem is not the industry, it's the regulations. There's gonna be a lot of discussion around what the future looks like and you can bet your bottom $$ it won't be as clean cut as people think it will be.
Fact #5: Binance has onboarded at least 25% of all crypto users. Some studies actually say close to 45%. Binance has done much to help the field and CZ never shied away from any criticism. He has only been candid in his interviews even when he was clearly frustrated with whatever FUD was being thrown at him. I've met many people in my life who were leaders. Some were shit, some were the stuff of legend. CZ is not shit and he shows all the telltale signs of a great leader. I'm sure he made mistakes (and he will pay for them most likely in $$$ and stress) but there's nothing here that can take down Binance.
I firmly believe they can withstand this storm of epic proportions and when they do just think how their reputation is gonna skyrocket
