You know when you sit down for a meal in front of the computer and you just need something new to watch for a bit while you eat? If you search /videos or other places, you'll find mostly short videos. But while you're eating, you don't want to be constantly fumbling around with the mouse, loading video after video. You just want to 𝐂𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐤 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐬𝐮𝐦𝐞.

2023.06.05 06:14 worldstarcasm Elgato Hd60X not capturing audio on Xbox Series X

Here’s what my setup consists of (I also play on a monitor):
Elgato HD60X Xbox Series X Macbook Pro Astro A40’s (wired) and/or Astro A50’s (wireless) OBS
I’ve got everything hooked up right, watched countless setup videos as well as setting configurations for OBS / Elgato / Astro / Xbox and I’m officially stuck.
My HD60X isn’t capturing any game or voice audio. I really just bought the A50’s because I assumed my Elgato couldn’t capture any audio since it went through my A40’s mix-amp rather than the Xbox, but now that I have the A50’s I’m realizing the audio is connected through the charging station so I still capture no audio. I’m also hearing that wireless headphones overall should be avoided with the HD60X since the audio isn’t being captured through the Xbox.
What do I do? Should I continue using the A40’s with the idea that it could be easier to fix? Should I send the A50’s back since I only bought them thinking because they’re wireless it would solve my problem? I really need help with this if anyone could help, thank you

(1)
The Main Goal:
Well if you’re browsing this subreddit then much like me, you were alone this weekend and I’m sure you’d like to change that as much as me. I won’t lie, I am going through a rough part of my life right now. It’s difficult for me to find the energy for anything at the moment and I’m just really seeking affection in general, anything that will give me a push. I don’t want to be that person who brings everyone down but I could really use someone to talk to right now. I’d really like to find someone who’s similar to me so much to the point that we do everything together and talk about everything while not having to pretend to be interested. I want someone with whom we can mutually spew our emotions onto and have those feelings reciprocated. Not an emotional punching bag, but an emotional teddy bear to hug and cuddle until everything feels better as many times as we need. There’s people who I’m sure have told you the same, they’ll be there no matter how many times you need the support, no matter how many times the insecurities and bad thoughts come back but they don’t mean it. I will be the exception, I’m not so ignorant to think some nice words and tales of relating to you will magically forever heal whatever ails you then get mad when you seek the same support again. Mental ailments are rarely temporary and I don’t care about someone because they’re perfect, caring about someone means being there no matter how many times they need you to be. It doesn’t feel like a chore, it doesn’t get old, and it never will.
(2)
(2.a)
What I'm Seeking:
I will upfront let you know if I’m clicking better with someone else or if you’re the one, I’m not here to tread the sea of fish or keep my options open, I’m here for one singular person.
(2.b)
Relationship:
A relationship is difficult for me right now, it’s been nearly half a year since I got out of my last relationship and the reasons for it ending are partially responsible for how I’ve been feeling and why it’s so hard for me to seek the comfort I so desperately crave. I will tell you about it but for the sake of not treating the entirety of the internet as my therapist, it’ll be in private. I really need the comfort of intimacy and the warmth of someone who cares. I'm not going to feel better if I just sulk and don’t move on. This is my attempt to get better, I’ll admit I’m not great right now and I don’t expect you to be either. If we can help each other heal, then I’d be more than happy :) A relationship isn’t just being there for when someone’s at their best. Even if a relationship is hard at the moment, I do want a life partner and I don’t want to be alone. Things aren’t going to get easier without you so I don’t want to hesitate. I view my other as an equal, I don’t like categorizing us into specific roles. We take care of each other and treat each other how we like to be treated, whatever that is, it's as simple as that. I don't care if you're "successful" or not, living simple lives with our days filled with love is the ultimate measure of success to me.
(3)
Personality:
(3.a)
On the Surface:
As you can tell I can be rather… stoic but that’s largely due to my current stressors, I truthfully am goofy and fun loving but I just can’t find it in me right now. I want to return to that but without someone to light up my world it’s been difficult to just have fun and enjoy stuff. I’m definitely more introverted, you won’t catch me at any parties or really outside at all. I definitely prefer being home though the occasional outing is not out of the question and one day I’d like to travel to other countries because I think that kind of perspective is important.
(3.b)
The Core of My Being:
I like being a spectator to it all and if we bear witness to humanity burning or its miraculous recovery, I want to watch it with you. I enjoy watching humanity advance, less so when it devolves but I want to watch it to the end nonetheless. I’m both a realist and someone who lives with my head in the clouds dreaming of scenarios or worlds that don’t exist. I’m saying that I enjoy a good narrative and can suspend my disbelief to enjoy something but you won’t catch me refusing vaccines or ignoring blatant facts for the sake of some pseudo science or witch doctor’s remedy. I’m an atheist but I do not rule out existence after death, not because I’m agnostic but because due to the nature of potentially infinite time at some point after how many googol years with a googol amount of 0s after that, something’s bound to replicate your consciousness perfectly at some point. It’s actually a really fascinating topic I like talking about. If infinite time and infinite possibilities exist, does non existence exist? Though that’s an awfully existentially dreadful thought process considering the ramifications of infinite existence and infinite possibilities during said infinite existence. I would say I’m confidently left leaning and I don’t think I could truly get along with anyone right leaning, at least America’s definition of right leaning. Left and right seems to have just become; do people deserve to suffer or do they deserve to live good lives? Being political is not something I expected to become but how can you not be when crimes against human rights are being passed on a daily basis and at the end of the day, everything’s political. Oftentimes I imagine the perfect moment as relaxing with my significant other playing games or cuddling in a cold room under blankets.
I value that special someone above all of the existential thoughts, the bad of the world, the good of the world, they practically become my world. So many worries wash away when I’m with them. I don’t know if that’s the defense mechanism my brain created to not feel bad 24/7 but if it is, I’m currently without it.
(3.c)
Insecurities:
I talk of philosophy and politics here but really I spend most of my time just playing games, watching stuff, and trying to not be sleep deprived. I’m also nowhere near as well spoken, heck sometimes I feel like my speech is broken. I won’t claim to be something I’m not, I sit at home while I complain about the world doing nothing about it wishing I had someone here with me. I’m not noble nor do I really want to be, I have morals I uphold but much like most other hypocrites I acknowledge that my comfortable life is built on the suffering of others without doing anything about it. Why? My sleep problems? Am I depressed? Is that why I have no energy to do anything? Do I just think nothing I could do could help? I can’t nail it down myself, maybe it’s a mix of everything, maybe I’m just a bad person. I have always told myself that if I had wealth I would help people but if I get that kind of wealth will I just become a wealth hoarder who tries to justify my riches as something I earned rather than something given to me through incredibly lucky circumstances? If I do help people is it because I’m a good person or out of guilt? Will I die alone? I feel like I drive everyone away with my clinginess, I get paranoid often and need reassurance often. It’s something I want to work on, something I’ve been trying to work on. Hearing that someone cares about me just never gets old. I value self awareness even if it’s painful.
(3.d)
Socializing:
I’m definitely a socially anxious/awkward mess, especially around strangers. I do feel a large amount of anxiety in public, people can’t tell by looking at my face since I kind of go stone faced in an attempt to block everything out but yeah you’ll notice that if we go out in public. Growing up my pediatrician said I was probably autistic, never got a formal diagnosis so that’s just great. But yeah that explains why I can’t make eye contact with people, I kinda just stare at the ground and avoid their gaze at all costs. A lot of these social struggles go away to a great degree once I know you for a bit but yeah I apologize for how terrible I am at socializing at first. Don’t let my social struggles fool you though, I love cuddling and being close with my person.
(3.e)
Sexuality:
I am a heterosexual male, though I’m not very masculine like at all. I may even be a bit feminine sometimes. Not that I believe any activity or manner of acting belongs to a gender but I don’t know how else to describe it. I’m definitely super affectionate and love it when my partner is too. I am open to dating demi people but I do have a libido so I don't think asexual would work out.
(4)
Interests:
(4.a)
Video Games:
As stated before, I do spend a lot of my time playing video games. It’s been hard lately with me having no energy but I really do want to play more games and have a good time playing them with you! I primarily play on PC though I do have a switch. I’m primarily into platform fighters, roguelikes, open world, survival, and sandbox games. As for single player story games, I enjoy watching them through twitch or youtube but for the most part I don’t play them myself. I’d watch you play them though!
Here’s a list of games we can play:
-Minecraft (Java)
-Risk of Rain 2
-Gunfire Reborn
-Roboquest
-7 Days to Die
-Phasmophobia
-Rust
-Unturned
-Bloons TD 6
-Platform fighters: Super Smash Bros. Melee, Slap City, Multiversus, Flash Party, Fraymakers
Whatever you want to play I’ll give it a shot! I will say that League bores me to death but I’ll play it for you :) I try to avoid MMOs, not because I don’t like them but because of how addicted I can get to them. I enjoy learning games in-depth so MMOs can be a fast track to addiction.
I recently got Kerbal Space Program 2 and ehhh not really worth it right now but hopefully later it will be? I’m super excited for Tears of the Kingdom! In the far off future I’m excited for Rivals of Aether 2 which is a platform fighter releasing in 2024, let me know of your most anticipated releases and I’ll see if I could play them with you!
Also I never got into FPS games but I could totally see myself playing like CoD with you or Escape From Tarkov. Any FPS really, I’m down.
I am a fan of Pokemon but with how things have been lately I don’t know how long that will last. Pixelmon is a common Pokemon mod I play for Minecraft if you want to play that! Also if I say I want to play something with you I mean it but there are often times when no matter how much I want to I'm just drained and can do little more than lay in bed so please don't think I'm making an excuse.
(4.b)
Science:
I really enjoy keeping up with the latest advances in pretty much everything, it could be biology, technology, astronomy, anything! I love seeing progression and I love talking about it! Really I could go on and on about what I’m obsessing about that day. I particularly love technology, ask me for my laptop specs I dare you. When I was little I always wanted to be a scientist of any kind but then insomnia and fear of college stuff hit me like a truck aaaand that’s the end of that dream.
(4.c)
Anime:
You got me, I like anime but I’d like to think my tastes are benign.
Here’s some of my favorites I can list from the top of my head:
- To Your Eternity
- Vinland Saga
- Spice and Wolf
- Re:Zero
- Mob Psycho
- Dr. Stone
- Attack on Titan
- Spy x Family
- My Hero Academia
- Ranking of Kings
- Demon Slayer
Okay I can go on and on but I will say I don’t like pointless fan service and the spamming of cliche anime moments. I mostly enjoy action and anything well animated if it doesn’t have a potato story. Heck Demon Slayer could be my top 3 out of season 2’s animation alone. I don’t watch slice of life often or romance but I would with you!
(4.d)
Misc:
I’m not going to go on and on about the tiniest little things when the main ones are covered but I’ll watch pretty much any show with you and anything really. I like random youtube videos that explain some kind of lore or mystery, sometimes mini documentaries too.
As for food I looove sushi and I’m a sucker for fast food. Okay and candy, definitely candy.
I used to play tennis but haven’t really had the opportunity nor friends to play it with and I’m way too socially anxious to seek it out. Also I will say that when we move to something like discord I type waaaay more casually. I’m not going to expect long paragraphs back and forth like we’re writing English papers for each other, I do enjoy long conversations but seriously don’t worry about having to put the utmost effort into every response, I just like making good first impressions I guess.
(5)
(5.a)
My Physical Characteristics:
I’m 5’8 (172cm), 128 pounds (58kg), with curly brown hair and blue eyes. I like keeping my hair long in the winter and cutting it in the summer. I’m pretty slim in general so if you’re looking for someone large, that’s not me. I don’t work out but my work is pretty physical so at least I’m not totally inactive. I don’t have the urge to work out or gain muscle but I do want to maintain my slim figure so if I start losing control of that I’ll work out. I like to keep my face shaved because I don’t think I look good with a beard/mustache so if you’re into those I apologize. I have an average amount of body hair? I’d prefer to be completely shaved but it’s easy to lose motivation with that battle, if you prefer shaved then I’d have no problem complying. Anyways here’s what I look like: https://imgur.com/a/MZZgf2t
(5.b)
My Physical Preferences:
Having physical preferences makes me feel shallow, if I could make myself not have them I would but unfortunately that’s now how that works. I don’t care if you’re shorter or taller than me and I don’t care if you weigh more or less than me. All I ask is that you’re slim-average weight. I would never ask for someone to be something I’m not. I don’t care about tattoos or piercings.
(6) Expectations of You: I am not looking for someone “exciting” or someone to “keep me on my toes” I’m not looking for someone to cater to my every whim or anything like that. I don’t care if you’re “boring” or if you aren’t “successful”. I know it’s a common thing for people to not want a “boring” relationship and to seek something argumentative or something with constant challenges but I just want to be with you. During the exciting times, the boring times, and everything in-between, all of it will be great with you! Maybe we do argue sometimes or maybe there will be challenges but that will never be something I purposefully seek out and I don’t want that to be something you seek out either. I will not play tricks on you and I will not play mind games, I expect the same from you. We all have personal measures of success we may or may not have lived up to but what I care about most is our commitment to each other. If we have each other we can get through tough times, near the ends of our lives I want us to look back and feel that this life together was worth more than anything. That’s not saying I want us to be haphazard, I don’t want us to make poor decisions for the sake of yolo and I want us to always be rational, especially with each other. I want you to be someone I can trust to make decisions and weigh the options with a level head, I’ll try my best to live up to the same for you. Most of all I want empathy, understanding, someone to feel the utmost comfort and trust in.
(7)
Living Situation:
Currently my life is pretty relaxed, I work 3 times a week as a night shift stocker. I currently live in a 2 bedroom apartment with my roommate but we’re looking to move into someplace larger by the end of the year if everything works out. The internet is weirdly great for Ohio too like I have fiber and later this year we’re supposed to be getting dedicated fiber so that’s neat. I’m not attached to Ohio so the ultimate goal living location wise is probably moving to a country that won’t send you into a lifetime of dealing with the repercussions from one medical emergency.
(8)
Deal Breakers:
Might as well make this simple and make it a list.
- Anti-vaxxers
- Unironically believing astrology
- Right wingers
- Hard drugs (occasional 420 and alcohol is fine, may even join you)
- Wanting children, there was a time when I was younger when I wanted children but with the state of the word that’s a definite no and I feel like I wouldn’t be able to handle the stress. I’d love a stress free life with as much time with you as possible.
- Homophobic
- Transphobic
- Racist
- Super Religious
- Don’t be a bigot and don’t deny facts.
(9)
Closing Remarks:
Well you made it, I was thinking that finding someone I’d be willing to put a lifetime of effort into at least required this much effort. If I think of anything more I’ll update the post. Also about timezones, it really doesn’t matter where in the world you are. I don’t have a sleep schedule and I have most of the week off from work so it really doesn’t matter.
I request that in your response you do put effort into it, it doesn’t have to be anywhere near as long as this but at least enough so I know that you read this and enough about you so I know why you saw potential compatibility. I will seriously read all of it and respond the best I can. I do also request a pic included in your response (sfw please) or one soon after we start talking to prove identity, I’ll send identity proving pics too. As long as this post is up, you can send a reply!

2023.06.05 06:14 AsscherShapeDiamond Cushion Diamonds

Cushion Diamonds
The cushion diamond has rounded sides along with a square cut. For the first century of its existence, the most common diamond shape was this timeless cut, which has been around for 180–190 years. Cushion diamonds are less glossy than round diamonds but are nonetheless fairly bright. While some individuals favour round diamonds for their great overall sparkle, others favour the high brilliance of the cushion cut. Diamonds with a cushion cut often cost 20% to 30% less than diamonds with a round cut. Each carat requires more maintenance because when jewellers shape a rough stone into a round shape, more harm is done.

2023.06.05 06:14 davidblainestarot Glamour Magick synchronicity

I've gotten a lot of synchronicities either like this before or the exact significant phrase or keyword I was thinking... But I was stirring some turmeric in my tea and thinking how I want my next glamour magick to be SO INTENSE, I don't care how drastic and obvious the immediate change is. Like, let me see the full extent of what I can do! Let it be obvious that I did witchcraft, I don't care! Change every and anything necessary for me to be my ideal self, all at once! 🤣
And on TV right then I heard "It's not the same girl in the pictures".... Like, YASSSS! LET me be completely different!! 🤣
I've been liking my appearance lately and feeling like I was enhancing it, plus my overall diving feminine energy in how I carry myself. But I had candid pictures taken of me 📸 when I was doing a comedy show. I almost always look bad when other people take pic of me. Plus I have high social anxiety, facial tension that gets worse with social anxiety, and I don't like how my cheeks widen my face when I smile and laugh.
So those fucking HORRIBLE AWFUL TERRIBLE EMBARRASSING pictures that are going to haunt me, and in which I look nothing like how I look in selfies or even the mirror.... I was like DAMN!! Did my anxiety really set back my glamour manifestation that I even enhanced with Moon rituals????
Then I thought of what I know about the manifestation process, and I'm going with "I had to face myself looking how I fear I look to people, so that I can be even STRONGER AND UNWAVERING in my FOCUSED INTENTION to be ONLY MY SEXY IDEAL DIVINE FEMININE GODDESS SELF! 💃🏽🧞‍♀️. . . . . It makes sense to be aware of how I'm still super self-conscious about looking ugly, flawed, and awkward, even after I do magick, intentions, and affirmations to be THE COMPLETE OPPOSITE. Why would I be holding 2 opposing states of mind? This is why I got mixed results.

2023.06.05 06:14 ConversationDry8237 If I knew then..how to choose a way forward from an emotionally abusive relationship F29 M33

I have been married for almost 7 years. I was in a very vulnerable place when we first got together and he became my person. A few months prior to meeting him, I had attempted suicide and lost most of my friends. I was a sophomore in college and I did not have many friends to begin with and it scared people away. I was so lonely and he was the only one I opened up to (after a few months - no emotional dumping) that didn’t turn the other way.
He has always had anger problems. He has never physically been violent with me. His abuse is emotional. I have gone to therapy off and on (currently been seeing my therapist for 8mo) and tried various medication changes. He has a pattern of having an outburst of frustration or passive aggressively telling me something that he wants changed. Once I am defensive, he pushes the argument, won’t let me leave or “take a break”. I get emotional, super emotional. He tells me my feelings are wrong, why what I heard was wrong, how my thoughts are wrong.
It has been this way throughout our marriage. There are seasons of better or worse. Usually the better seasons are when I close up. I don’t feel attracted to him anymore and his random compliments feel pointed to get sex. It’s better to get it over with most of the time because if I say not tonight, he is usually grumpy or overly sexual until I do. I will never forget the time he said I looked beautiful and that he loved my body but then after sex, I was in the bathroom about to shower and he asked if I had talked to my doctor about weight loss.
I have always been heavier since the emotional stress of my suicide attempt but his constant negating comments about my weight, leave me feeling beyond insecure and ugly. I want to feel loved and I want to feel sexy. I have always been scared to leave, I don’t have a lot of other people besides him and financially I would not have been independent.
Over the last two years, we had a baby, I was diagnosed with preeclampsia after having my son which resulted in a stroke and surgery, my dad died unexpectedly, and my place of work is closing. It has been stress after stress and he continues to tell me that he doesn’t understand how I am more sensitive and emotional at times.
I have been working on how I can control my own emotions and feelings and how owning that is empowering. I realize that I am not being fulfilled physically or emotionally by him. I have never cheated on him or even wanted to. I recently crossed paths with someone who is younger than me that I find very attractive. I haven’t fantasized about someone like this since high school. I cannot stop thinking about him. He doesn’t make me feel like I have to be someone different. We have never been alone together and I have no idea if he is interested in me in that way.
I don’t want to be selfish and act on something that could ruin my marriage but I also don’t think he is ever going to change. Again I don’t know if this younger guy is interested in me like that but he has said some flirty things. It could also just be his personality. Being older than him and being married, it is hard to know how much he is interested and if he is, how can I even ask that? I know it sounds terrible to ask how to know if a guy is into you, I know I should be faithful, but I want to feel loved and I want to feel wanted.

2023.06.05 06:13 Mogwai10 This has never happened before

I’m sorry if this is formatted incorrectly or if I leave out details to not let myself be found out
Back in 05, during undergrad, I met this absolutely wonderful person while we were both RAs in our respective dormitories. For two years we dated on and off and we just somehow couldn’t fully connect. Something always felt off with her. She’d mssg me super amazing things like how amazing I am and such ( how would this not sound amazing to somebody)? Although when in person she’d act strange and sort of aloof.
I always chalked it up to immaturity or being shy. For two years we’d meet up every now and again and sleep together and she’d rush off. I was young so I didn’t want to play that jealousy card and figured she may also just want it to stay casual. Absolutely nothing wrong with that. I felt insanely lucky to even have the opportunity to be around someone who I found so absolutely beautiful. (She had the most perfect skin and piercing blue eyes that I still see in my dreams).
Years would pass after we “ended things” and never saw her again. But every year or so she’d mssg me on fb just to see or let me know she somehow thought of me. Every time all these years I’d also randomly just go back to those few date night that we shared. So it was kind of great to know she somehow thought of me. ( I say this because to me, I’m absolutely a ridiculously hideous man compared to how stunning she is. I’m a 3 compared to her being a literal 10. She was absolutely funny when she opened up and that would make me feel like I was the only one on the earth being able to even sit beside her).
Fast forward two weeks ago and a random mssg popped up on my fb and sure as day it’s her. She indicated that she had another dream about me and that she had to let me know. This time however, I’m currently in a relationship and live with my partner (bought a house together. Even moved to Texas from the Midwest.).
Since I didn’t think anything of it and figured she’d just make her comment and disappear like she always did, I kept the conversation going. Little by little she began stating how she still thinks about why we never ended up together (this was news to me as I always thought she just didn’t want to be with me completely). While interacting I find out she is neurodivergent so she mentions that perhaps while we were together that she maybe thinks that’s why she always seemed to be “off” and why we didn’t fully “connect”. ( I know very little of this so I have no proof and am not judging this comment from her)
This weekend she openly admits she is still in love with me and I was taken back because I basically left all of this behind assuming I just wasn’t enough. She is married with children yet she told me this.
I could never think of even remotely wanting this to be a thing, but I’m mostly just needing to vent because this was so big to me as a 21 year old and now being 40 it’s thrown a huge curve ball at me. I’d never follow through with this or even placate the idea.
I guess my question is, has anyone ever been in this situation and how does your world not shatter knowing a massive what if? My god my brain is running thousand of miles an hour of all those moments I still remember about her. But I don’t want them anymore. How I wish back then it could have been.
I have no one on earth I could talk to about this. And I hate it.
Edit: I will absolutely state I don’t want to be with this person. I never in my wildest dreams think someone would ever openly admit something like this to me. Especially from almost 20 years ago. I must end it. Before this gets worse or blows up to ruin what I have.

2023.06.05 06:13 plstcStrwsOnly Notes from the human body

If inclined, consider the idea of dunking one’s head face first into a bowl of ice water. One might observer how the body attempts to rectify the situation and the balance in you that comes after controlling the situation, always breathe first in through your nose, out through mouth.
For me, nitrous was a part of my life but it is no more. In nitrous I explored what it meant to asphyxiate, what it feels like to die, what it meant to become less and more unconscious, or how my body was ready to deal with the array of self destructive investigations that day.
In those times when my consciousness went out, only to be clicked back on as the air from my environment (and not the turkey bag with a mouth piece full of nitrous) slowly regained control over the abyss. When the light came back on and in times since under many circumstances, I visualized my child brain which never got to develop right (due to a bitch complication I had breathing difficulties and came out blue subsequently spent weeks in the hospital). In those moments when I come back to awake, it reset the base level circuitry where all connections converge. Forming new connections that I associate with positive and blessing, associations in part thanks to realizations from the dmt plant medicine, a therapist, a caring family, an awesome and supportive spouse, friends, and ketamine.
Since then I realized nitrous scratched an itch in me that I never understood. But as I dug deeper I discovered my subconscious deepest traumas, but it didn’t have to be like that for me if I could’ve found the right information.
Few lessons besides the obviously: Don’t use the compressed oxygen, can lead to permanent damage in the air sacs of your lungs. Once ok but do not incorporate into a habit of “getting higher this time” and it being a needed step.
Stop using alcohol mouthwash, kills good bacteria that make nitric oxide (not nitrous) from nitrites in beets (beet root powder gets the blood flowing btw)
Remember that your body really only knows what the pressure and quantity of cO2 is. The key is really all about partial pressure which isn’t well understood. Your body gets confused before it suddenly becomes aware we aren’t breathing as rapidly as it projected, and if the projection was lazy your breathing rhythm can get super out of whack! Blowing through a straw down into a cup of water is a cheap way to retrain your parasympathetic nervous system so as not to reinforce this new condition as a habit which is enforced with less resistance, (assuming one is inclined to be mixing nitrous with hallucinogenic substances that appear to increase neuro plasticity and perhaps play a role in neuro genesis) given the nitrous ability to release dopamine which is the neural pathway trainer.
Posture matters, be symmetrical, pitch your shoulders inflate your tummy.
Breathing nitrous through your mouth is one of the metabolically expensive parts related to abuse, because of the complex interactions of nitric oxide in your nasal cavalry (among over blood pressure and flow issues caused directly by the effects of the drug)
If you’re not just interesting in turning consciousness down, but simply the bounds of your consciousness, nitrous and dmt in my opinion are on opposite sides of the spectrum.
TLDR: when you’re done abusing nitrous (for the night or for life) simulate the experience you just induced by dunking your head under cold ice water, only rule is first breathe in should be in through the nose. This will help reset your nervous system and breathing, if you mouth breath during the night (wake up with dry mouth) tape your mouth shut for 1-7 days with micro pore tape to train your body.

2023.06.05 06:13 realshetty_01 An app idea

The idea is to develop a goal tracking app. At it's very core the app will help user break down goals into milestones and then milestones into todos then user can export those todos to their google calendar. Now the app comes with 2 unique features. One of them is the "explore page". So let's say a user has a goal in mind, to prepare for a marathon in 2 months time, now normally the user will have to research about this goal like what should be the training routine, what kind of diet plan should they be on and so on. Through "explore page" user will just search the keywords marathon 2 months and they will see other people's exact goals or similar goals. And the user will be able to checkout how other users are working towards this goal (their milestones, todos etc). The other unique feature would be to help people figure out and set up goals in life through AI generated questionnaire. I have already completed the core functionalities as I'm a programmer. So that's the idea. Please let me know your feedbacks. Thanks.

2023.06.05 06:13 Ionick_ When a simple Google search reveals the current state of a school reaching out to you for a job...

My school district is definitely one of those that is absolutely struggling with a teacher shortage. More specifically, the shortage largely affects schools that are, well... sites that no one wants to work for in the first place. It's very common for these schools to try poaching teachers from other schools over the summer break. I don't completely blame them for doing whatever they can to get vacancies filled, but I'm just astounded at the audacity and delusion of some of these schools.
I received an email earlier today (why on a Sunday, I have no idea) from such a school, and the assistant principal really tried pulling the wool over my eyes and made it seem like I should have been honored to even have the opportunity to be hired at this school. Well, a very simple Google search revealed this school as being completely contradictory to all of the fluffy adjectives and buzzwords this AP used... Daily violence and fights, rock bottom student proficiencies, abusive administration, etc...
Do these people really think prospective teachers are *that* stupid to fall for things like this?

2023.06.05 06:12 stinky_harriet Tandem, your infusion sets suck

I've only been using my t:slim for about 3 months. I have wasted more infusion sets in those three months than I did in the previous 3 years with Medtronic. I overused my abdomen by inserting Silhouettes (angled sets) there for 16 years. I switched to the Mio Advanced which was fantastic. Now I'm on Tandem and they sent Autosoft 90 with my initial pump order. I use SkinTac and I've still pulled them out. I've pulled them out just trying to disconnect at the site. I've had a couple of bent cannulas. I did received Autosoft XC with my new order but they're only marginally better.
I changed my site this morning. It really hurt when I went to disconnect the tubing. I thought about just ripping it out. I waited a minute then tried again and it felt fine. Worked good all day. After dinner I kept creeping up. I'd correct and it would plateau a bit, maybe come down slightly, then go back up. I just did another correction and got the alarm saying all deliveries were stopped. I removed the set and the cannula looked fine, but the whole underside of the tape was wet with insulin. I've never had that happen before. I don't know why the insulin was leaking out instead of going into my body. My site (skin) also looked fine. No redness, no lump, no pain. I also don't take a lot of insulin so I wasn't trying to push a ton of insulin through. 1.8u was the largest correction I took.
Now it's after midnight, I want to go to bed, and I have a brand new set in that I hope is working correctly. I have no idea how much IOB I have since it was obviously leaking out. I used the tubing fill to take half of what the IOB showed, I was afraid to do the full amount in case any did get into me.
And for those who are going to suggest the TruSteel, I've tried those back when I had Medtronic and they were super painful everywhere except my arms. I use my arms for sensors and hate the tubing there.

2023.06.05 06:12 Gunlord500 Incorruptible blocks in Master mode?

Hey guys, I just started a world in Master mode. All the wikis say that stone slabs are incorruptible, but when I tried to build a couple of shafts with that material, after a few hours I noticed they had started to turn Crimson. Are there any incorruptible block types in Master mode or is the spread of Crimson that extreme?

2023.06.05 06:12 KarmaFarmingperson Really dumb update idea : Gear remake

So I have a few really dumb idea to make dl2's gear abit less of a cookie cutter and a bit more distinct from one another.(at least thats what Ive heard the complaint was). Ik this may sound dumb but just hear me out.
What if each the gear for each class will have a permanent stat, or an "ability" for the respective class that will appear on all of the gear set in that class, doesn't matter the rarity or the gear level of the gear?
An example for a permanent stat: medic class gear sets can get a -15% use time for healing items that will appear on all of the medic class realted gear set. Or something like a +15% heal amount for all healing items. You get the idea
An example for an "ability":when wearing a medic class set a new option can be chosen in the consumable slot that is some sort of syringe. Its a one time use item that cannot be crafted and will only appear as an option when wearing a medic gear . When used, it will replenish some amount of health when you perform a parkour move . Each gear set will add another use to the syringe ( like if you wore 3 medic class gear set you could have 3 syringes) and you can replenish the syringe by performing a certain amount of parkour move attacks. Of course not every class needs the ability to be like medic like how I did have an idea for tank class to have a shield with certain amoint of moves that can block zombie grabs and stun enemies longer and all that. Yeah it's overtweaked but this is just a concept I pulled out of my ass. You get the whole idea.
Or, certain gear sets can have the permanent stat boost, and certain gear sets can have the "ability". Like medic shirts and pants can have the "ability" Ive listed above , and the rest, the bracer,glove,sneakers and head gear can have the -15% use time for healing items or the +15% heal amount, whatever was on the gear. That way if you wore a full medic gear you could have 2 syringes to use and a -60% or +60% for the use time or heal amount of healing items.
Yeah these are overtweaked but I just want the show the concept.
On a less important note, I also have an idea for generally, the whole gear system:
Instead of making every stat of every gear to be somewhat randomise, why not just make each gear of a single class have a permanent stat, and that stat could be more effective compared to other gears?
And, make stat that was boosted on that gear will always be around an amount , and will be the same of a similar gear of that gear level and rarity
Im probabily bad at explaining this but basically, medic class for example. Make the headgear will always have the parkour exp boost stat with a huge amount, like 15 or 20% or smth, and the shirt to have the parkour damage boost at around 15 or 20% as well. And this will apply to all the head gear or shirt that you came accross ,that is also similar rarity or gear level. You get the idea.
However, other gears like pants can still get the same stat effect as the headgear, but it is randomized and you can probably only get it on pants that are above purple/unique rarity. And you can only get like, at max 5% boost or smth.
Hell, maybe one gear could have like , 2 or 3 permanent stat, but one stat is just much higher than the other. Like medic bracers of the same rarity and gear level can have a +20% boost in health regeneration speed, while also having a +7% in parkour damage.
And yes, randomized stats like damage boost at nighta can still exist on a gear randomly
This is probably overtweaked by alot but this way it could make each gear of a class to have their own use, and it would probably make getting a whole class set more purposeful than it is.

2023.06.05 06:12 Dawn_Star_Platinum How Come Nobody Mods the BFG Edition Compared to the OG Version?

What bugs me is that nobody wants to mod the BFG Edition as much as OG Doom 3.
When we heard that the BFG Edition was coming out, Doom fans were expecting it to surpass the OG but ultimately it disappointed them.
Not to mention BFG has Lost Mission whereas OG does not, isn't that plenty reason to want to give BFG mods that turn it into the BFG Edition we deserved?
For people complaining about the "Improvements" BFG has, all modders have to do is - Reduce ammo count and increase the enemy count back to the way the OG had it - Give us back the flashlight (the LT/L2 buttons let us switch back and forth to weapon and flashlight) - Reduce the lighting and bring back the same level of darkness the OG had - Bring us back the OG BGM for the UAC Opening Cutscene and Pause Menu - Give us back the Weapons we had in the OG instead of the slight alterations for the BFG such as slower firing rate from the chaingun or any other weapon animation pacing - If Possible give us back the Main Menu and PDA Menu from OG
Maybe even bigger improvements such as: - Giving us the option to have either the Flashlight or the Armor Mounted flashlight. - Giving us the option to toggle the level designs darkness so we can bring it back to the same lighting the OG had or toggle it back up to the BFG lighting - Give us the option to choose which version of the weapons do we want, OG or BFG - Give us the option to use OG, BFG, or have a mix of both sounds when firing certain weapons like the shotgun - Give us the Killable Cyber Demon where you don't have to use the Soul Cube to beat it - Mission Selection, only available after you beat the Campaigns. - Give us the option to toggle which version of the Models we want to use, either OG or BFG versions - Give us Betruger focusing on his computer after that Cutscene with him and Swann on the first mission
I know some of these mod ideas exist but I'm talking about mod ideas for the BFG Edition.
Both versions are made from the same engine, the same programming software, so what's up with that?

2023.06.05 06:12 ImaRedditor_AMA This is gonna be weirdly specific but nothing ventured…

If you’re a Montessori teacher, trying to live by Maria’s teachings, who actually believe that children are the hope of the world and it’s our job to help them thrive, well… message me :)
If you’re not a Montessori teacher but this post resonates with you, it works too.
You don't have to have kids to love them. I hope to become a mother someday but whatever shall happen will happen. What I want first and foremost is a loving, meaningful and supportive relationship.
So why am I aiming for a Montessori teacher?I get frustrated in all areas of my life because I can’t find people who actually live according to their values. Most of them simply because they never really thought about their values, others because they think you have to be a saint to actually walk the talk, so they stopped trying.
I happen to have thought quite a lot about what matters to me, and I’ve learned to prioritize and be mindful about things that hinder me in trying to grow in that direction.I have a hard time doing it, and I fail in the smallest things, but at least I’m trying.I firmly believe that you need a relationship to grow. I know I need someone to lovingly call me on my BS and hold me accountable, helping me stay in the direction I’m going when I stumble.
Everybody loves Montessori, but not a lot of people understand the depth of her teachings and the implications it has on your life when you’re really trying to live according to them.
Same goes with Jesus actually. Many people love the idea of him, like atheists who tell me he was probably a super cool guy and a great teacher, or muslims who tell me he’s a great prophet, but none of them have actually really pondered the teachings and tried to apply them in their life.If they had they would be christians or they wouldn’t think Jesus is such a cool guy and a great prophet anymore. Once you know Jesus, you love him or hate him, but there’s no middle ground anymore (« Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I came not to send peace, but a sword. »)
I've been deeply disappointed coming back to the church after finding my faith again. Everybody loves the golden rule « Do unto others as you would have them do unto you » but very few live by it, because it’s pretty darn hard.Again, I’m not saying I’m acing it, far from it. Trying is all I’m doing, and all I’m asking for.
So yeah, if kindness, forgiveness and generosity are a big deal to you, and you don’t live pretending they’re easy things to do, let’s talk :)
( I’m looking for someone to live life with, but I’m also looking for someone to start a Montessori project with, and for that a friend would be enough so here is my post on Montessori .. just putting it out there :)

2023.06.05 06:12 k-seph_from_deficit What is the adjustment Denver can make to retain Jokic’s playmaking when teams force him to play like a traditional power forward offensively?

Jokic is still the best player in the world and an elite scorer even when not playmaking. I am not blaming this on him but just want to discuss strategy.
The traditional strategy that teams used in the last 3 years in the playoffs to counter Jokic is to neuter his playmaking and letting him operate as a forward.
Jokic in the last 3 years: 2019-20 7.0 to 5.7 2020-21 8.5 to 5.0 2021-22 8.0 to 5.8
Draymond mentioned this in a podcast he did a couple of weeks ago as well that GSW’s entire goal against Denver was to get Jokic’s assist numbers under 6 and he mentioned the one game Jokic looked normal was when the Twolves reduced his playmaking to 6 assists.
The adjustment Denver made this post season to counter this is to run the ball through Murray as much as Jokic, they both have nearly the same usage% of 28-29% instead of Jokic dominating the ball with the idea that if Jokic’s playmaking is clamped like this game, Murray can be the primary play maker and Denver’s offence isn’t completely choked. This has made teams just accept the Jokic playmaking matchup.
However, while Denver has this counter, it’s still better for teams to force Denver to play like this, with Murray effectively playing as a play making point guard and Jokic playing as a paint scoring focused power forward offensively.
This creates a much more even matchup because Jokic is reduced to a ‘normal’ 35 ppg elite scorer as opposed to the best playmaker in the last 30 years who will also put up 25 with ease.
In today’s game when the Heat forced this, Denver’s overall offence was so clamped when Jokic was on the court in the first half while they were forcing the playmaking through him.
He was -11 in a 3 point game with 5 turnovers while being in the -17 to -20 range until the last minute come back attempt. He’s normally a +8 to +10 so that’s at least a -20 point deficit on the Jokic minutes. He at least played more like a PF in the second half instead of forcing the playmaking which reduced the bleeding from his minutes.
Both Jokic and Murray looked shook and had a rough time adjusting to being forced to play new roles by Miami when on the court together in the first half which led to multiple players committing turnovers. The game was close due to the incredible run they went on in the non-Jokic minutes in the second quarter. That was the only stretch that Denver was not either exchanging buckets or getting out hustled.
Denver still the big favourites against the Heat because they still have better players but will need to play much better defense and find ways to generate much better looks for 3s through Murray if Jokic is being held down constantly.
Denver need to make a choice to either decisively run through Murray from the first quarter or have a concrete plan against Miami’s defence clamping Jokic’s playmaking to not neuter that part of the game.
What would you do?

2023.06.05 06:11 spaceflamingo3 a6400 lens selection

Hi everyone I’m trying to get my foot into photography and am in the process of buying my first camera. I’ve decided to get the a6400 but am having some trouble deciding on which lens I should get. A lot of the places I’ve been looking at have the zoom lens bundled with the camera. However I’ve heard that a prime lens is ideal for sharper images. I have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to lens. I need some recommendations. I mainly trying to focus on street photography. I thinking I’m leaning more towards a prime lens but any advice/ recommendations is appreciated.

2023.06.05 06:11 ImMoistyCloisty Code no longer quits when "END" is entered

I'm a beginner in python and this is for my assignment. I've attached my code as two screenshots, reddits code block never works for me.
Screenshot 1: here
Screenshot 2: here
The purpose of the code: Code a shopping cart system. Ask for users product code, quantity and shipping method. Prices are calculated with various extra fee conditions. Continue to ask for user input until "END" is input at the add_record() function. Design a function to allow users to search for a shopping record (I'm still coding this part). Print the users shopping record on a table with the total cost.

I've got everything working (still coding the search_record()) but after putting in the total_cost() function, the program no longer exits after "END" is input. It instead prints the table and total cost, and asks for input again. I can't seem to work this part out. Any ideas?

Any help or advice is appreciated, thanks 💜

2023.06.05 06:11 Mauisurfslayer A question on those suspended limb holding style holding cells

So in the republic area it seems like a very common piece of technology being primarily used by the separatists and also Hondo’s pirates.
They are extremely effective, they don’t let a prisoner move basically at all, constantly being suspended in mid air with their limbs being pulled or suspended by some kind of tractor field, unless the power goes out or the person captive has some kind of external power like the force, abilities innate to some species and even some equipment that can be triggered remotely. But even force users seem to be unable to break these invisible shackles.
So why is this actual a really horrible idea? Well let me put it this way, a average human starts mentally losing it in under 5 days in a isolation cell with no outside stimulus, and that’s them being able to actually move around the cell and perform actions to stave off the effects of isolation.
So i have the personal feeling that if you put someone into one of those tractor suspenders and left them in a room they would probably quickly start panicking due to the fact they can move and their torso and parts of their limbs are limp in comparison to the hands and feet. On top of that you also have them potentially get the effects of isolation, and with the two combined one of these things would be legitimate torture
So realistically these things are best used for short durations, I would say no longer than 5-6 hours. So in canon what is the longest duration of time someone has been put into one? I seriously doubt it’s ever explained but maybe just based of extrapolation and the timeline? If you have any knowledge please share!
