2023.05.29 03:55 Salukichow How do you deal with Hannibal-Pupper?

My mom got a German shepherd (probably a mix) puppy which as of writing this is 4 months old. She’s pretty big and still acts like a puppy (which is understandable). Since I live with my mom and she works weekends I have to watch the dog on weekends (I hate that I have to and I’d rather have the dog with her at work due to my lack of energy after my Physically draining job plus the dog hates me). She has been trained a little bit and listens to my mom, she’s an Angel but only for my mom and strangers. I’ve had to break up multiple fights today because god forbid my brothers elderly beagle mix wants food. She’ll also eat EVERYTHING: cat toys, furniture, the wall, shoes, hair that she rips off my cats and me, you name it she most likely ate it but it’s not like she doesn’t have food, she just likes inedible things instead. She loves to grab my cats by the neck, back, or head and shake them like toys. Her favorite “game” is to find the perfect time to bite me, jump on me (not in a cute playful way, more like the “I hope snapped your neck” way), and/or rip out my hair. I have many many MANY marks all over me due to how much this dog hates me. I keep telling my mom that I can’t deal with it anymore and the dog’s behavior issues gets pinned back on me because I have “a shrill voice that sounds like a squeak toy”, or because I scream every time the dog hurts me (I’m pretty sure that’s a normal response to teeth sinking into your flesh) , or I’m just “mean” because I pin her just enough to prevent an ER or emergency vet visit and put her outside to protect myself and the other animals. My mom even told me to take her on a walk to calm her down and give her a calming treat (I have in the past and it led to me nearly busting my head on concrete because she wanted to wrap the leash my legs and bolt and still the dog acts like a mfing psychopath regardless of whatever I do.) I do play with her, so idk where her energy is coming from (I’d like to know so I can barrow some myself, no dog needs the energy to attempt to fight god or become one) She’s close to 11Ibs, comes up to my chest when standing on her hind legs(I’m 5ft 4in), she’s not a small dog and it legitimately scares me knowing she’s not even close to being done growing. I’ve never dealt with a dog with this bad of an attitude and behavior before (saying something cuz I grew up with dogs and had to deal with my fair share of brats, but this is above and BEYOND brattiness. Borderline Cujo type of shit without rabies) I’m currently writing this as I’m breaking down in the bathroom because I had to pry her off my cat, the other dog, and pry shards of a cat toy she decided to destroy out of her mouth (it was plastic), chase her twice in a short span of time. I can’t deal with it anymore and idk what to do. What am I supposed to do? Do I just accept defeat and curl up on the floor? Should I admit to a mental hospital because I’m “crazy” for getting this upset over a dog? What is the proper etiquette when it comes to having a dog latch on your face/scalp? (because apparently screaming and crying while trying to get her to let go isn’t it.) Should I try bite training so she’s not quick to biting? How do you stop food aggression? How do you deal with Hannibal-pupper? I’m being serious, also sorry for the huge essay/rant on this.

2023.05.29 03:54 Arcetos Asura short guide. Two builds: yellow hold spam and blue infinite flamefetter

Asura short guide. Two builds: yellow hold spam and blue infinite flamefetter

I'll go over two builds for asura, the high dps with frantic playstile, and a more relaxed yet effective one.
For both builds, the sigils are the same, the recommended ones, providing extra fire damage, and energy regeneration. Brief mention about the enchant effects, try to get them all eithecombined with extra fire damage and/or normal atk damage (as this also counts for the hold attack). Other stuff like less energy usage, mod index multiplier or dmg to x faction is also good, but prioritize the two mentioned earlier.
Also I'll be using the Functor signature key, that for Asura precisely is one of the characters that most need it to truly shine. I will suggest and talk assuming you have it, as not having it would require to explain things twice for different kinds of gameplays. If you want to play Asura for a long time, get the functor key, as it's incredibly worth it for her.
Also for both, using the Me-Yow bot to make sure we are always (or close) healthy regarding energy. As for the universal chips for the bots, do as you please. I use "Counter measure" to extend my poseidon's S freeze and "Tactical Assembly" to have my allies close to make use of Asura's CC abilities.
As for teams, right now we don't have much to synergize with. When asked vets on discord I've been answered, and seen answered to others that using Tsuku and S Poseidon is the best right now, or close to it for the pure dps output and CC. Whenever we got more characters, build will be more important and rich.

A few Basic concepts:

Before we begin, a quick run about a couple important concepts.
- Skill cancel: Dodging at the right time, makes it so skills and attacks are still effective, while cutting short the animation. This is not only true for Asura, but for her is specially effective. For her 3rd skill, it can be cut pretty early, 2nd skill doesn't need it as it's almost instant, and 1st skill as soon as you see the arms appear you can dodge. For the hold attack, as soon as or a bit before she makes contact with the ground it can also be canceled.
- Flamefetter state: It's activated upon the use of any skill. For default lasts for 4 seconds and meanwhile it provides extra 20% fire damage. Asura's whole kit and gameplay should revolve around this.
- Do bursts of damage when flamefetter is up if possible: hold attacks, skills and ultimates (yours).
For the yellow build to work well is heavily required the use and abuse of skill canceling, while for the second one isn't as needed. Making it yellow frantic gameplay and blue more relaxed. Tho the yellow, if well executed is about 33% more effective than the blue.

Yellow hold spam build

The build is based around hold attack. And it's three main synergies:
- With the signature key, increasing damage and lowering enemy fire resistance.
- With Yellow code 3 increasing damage using energy.
- With energy sigil, as energy is used, chance to recover it
As seen in the video, the general loop is to use a skill then use a couple hold attacks with the cancels, rinse and repeat. Simple to explain but timing well the dodge cancels can be challenging at times.
Try not to use the hold attack if the flamefetter state is not up, as it will still consume the energy, but without the 20% energy bonus that flamefetter provides. You can try to get greedy and do 3 hold attacks per flamefetter state, and it's possible but hard, if you see you can't get it in time, cancel it before it finishes to save up energy (it happens to me a couple times in the video).
I want to give credit to XLyrcX for bringing this kind of gameplay to my attention and explaining it.

Blue infinite flamefetter build

I try not to go too ham on this one, but less frantic instead
The idea is to trigger the infinite flamefetter state at the beginning of the match. First by saving a bit of energy, then using the skills 3-2-1 or 3-1-2, with somewhat tight timing, and when skill 3 is about 1 second to be off cooldown, spam it hard to trigger the long-ass flamefetter state.
This is for more "normal" gameplay, not stressing about the countdown of the flamefetter nor the energy nor constant skill canceling, yet it's still super powerful.
This flamefetter state has the following sinergies:
- With functor signature key: the more normal hits, the more damage the hold attack will do
- The blue codes, make it so the base flame damage is increased to base by 45%, then the bonus can be stacked based on duration. So, sort of "spamming" the three skills you get to 135% extra fire damage.
- Since flamefetter state isn't an issue, energy isn't either, so save the skills for the right time, or use them all for big bursts.
*NOTE: the yellow hold&spam style can be used in combination with the infinite flamefetter build, but it doesn't pay off, as it does around 17% more damage than if playing "normally". If you wanna play hold&cancel, use the yellow codes.
The timing to get it working is hard to get at first. For reference, I use 3rd skill, wait till the bar is about 1/4, then use 2nd skill, wait till bar is 1/3 then skill 1, finally smash skill 3 once is 1 second off cooldown.
Here's a post I did a couple days ago only related to this build.
I'm not a vet, tho a very enthusiast player, bothering vets on the discord and watching/reading everything I find about the game. If you have either questions or suggestions, go ahead! If there are further things to say about Asura, or to correct about this guide, comment about it and I'll edit and credit you :)

2023.05.29 03:52 Intelligent-poop Any good 24 hour animal hospitals nearby?

Anyone know any emergency animal services? Hopefully not but if it ever comes to it i don’t want to worry about finding a place, but I don’t see anything in Vaughan which is surprising. I see only 2 in Richmond hill with questionable reviews
Are those the closest options? Any suggestions appreciated.
*I already have a vet in Vaughan, just looking for a 24 hour service as backup

2023.05.29 03:49 BEMOlocomotion Anxiety over partner getting wisdom tooth extraction

I feel like such a big baby but for some reason I'm anxious about my partner (35f) getting her 4 wisdom teeth taken out. She is doing okay but needs ibuprofen every 4 hours because her wisdom tooth with a cavity is causing her pain. I feel awful for her and she's usually in such good health. She's never been in the hospital or been "put under" before. I'm trying to be strong and keep a good attitude for her- but I'm worried for some reason and keep thinking about the worse case scenario. I'm also emetophobic and am worried about having to take care of her while she's puking as a side effect of the general anesthesia (not sure how common this is but it says its common online)...
Idk I'm kind of a mess and it's annoying because we don't even know when this is happening yet. I just know she's in pain and needs this done. I know people undergo way worse procedures all the time but I'm a huge bag of nerves.

2023.05.29 03:48 Beginning-Pin-4114 Pets Custody

My (22F) and my boyfriend (23M) are having a rough time and we may breakup. We've been living together for about a year and been together for 5. It is my apartment fully and I am the only one on the utilities and lease. The problem is we have 4 cats. 2 are 100% mine and only have my name on adoption paperworks, vet records, micro-chips, etc.
When he moved in he convinced me to take in 2 strays who we agreed he would financially pay for. Since there is no paperwork I am unsure how custody would work. His name is not on the veterinary account and they both live in my apartment. I love all the cae and they love their siblings and I couldn't bare to see them go. Also, if we broke up, he would have to move back in with his parents who have 2 pitbulls who are not good around smaller animals.
Is there a way I can set it up that the cats are mine? Without spending money on legal fees/an attorney? Does it matter who's name is on the micro-chips?
Any help would be so greatly appreciated as losing a long term relationship is hard enough but my cat would destroy me. He has also threatened violence if I try to keep the cats, but I know my home is the best option for them.

2023.05.29 03:47 portsmouthpreppies The captain of the varsity lacrosse team told me a gigantic joke in spring 2006, during my first day on the lacrosse field. He repeated it once when we were in the hallway together randomly. Today is spring 2023, 17 years later, and I’m just barely starting to get the joke.

The captain of the varsity lacrosse team told me a gigantic joke in spring 2006, during my first day on the lacrosse field. He repeated it once when we were in the hallway together randomly. Today is spring 2023, 17 years later, and I’m just barely starting to get the joke.
I’m glad I don’t remember much about spring 2006 except his comforting voice saying they should stop insulting the quality of my lacrosse. Apparently, even the way I cradled my lacrosse stick was offensive.
So, it was a girl who taught me how to play lacrosse. A college student I paid with my minimum wage student job probably like $30 to teach me how to play.
Everyone was offended. My birth mother who had already lost moral credibility in my eyes was offended that I was speaking to that woman. My cross country lacrosse team captain stared me down in the eyes during lax warm up sprint for having the audacity to play lacrosse instead of outdoor track. I knew I was dropping a lot of balls. I could hardly shoot. Jo Ja was counting down the days until Harvard.
Mi Su, whose Torah portion must have been about justice, commented on the JV field, at the school across the street, shared his cautious scientific theory that the reason the quality of my lacrosse was so poor (poor is not a haha word at all whatsoever and working class consciousness rocks!) was because I was scared of something.
I don’t remember the varsity lacrosse captain’s name, although I could find it if I really wanted to. I remember Ja Co for example, and other more popula wel-known seniors from the class of 06.
I apparently have absolutely no idea whatsoever, even now, about the extent to which upperclassmen were gossiping about me in fall 2005. My favorite year of high school. Freshman. Ka Jo (Regina George) and I both chose to play indoor track, which meant we had nice long rides on the bus together to distant points in Baltimore County. I remember her and I laughing together, probably in shock about the transition from middle school to high school.
I remember parents complaining in middle school about how their children were describing personal details about their lives on AOL Instant Messenger away messages. I remember ktzaqt23, of course. My favorite memory about her also involves lashon hara, gossip in Hebrew.
He pointed at this random woman in the hallway ho wore her hair in a messy ponytail on the side of her head, with the ponytail bunched up on the top of her head into a bun. He said “is that a dead animal?"
If it took me 17 years to understand the first part of the joke it might take me a while to understand the punchline. I bet pussy smells great and I think there is a deeper meaning to the joke. I drove, among other things, to a distant dual part of Maryland to lacrosse camp to get special summer camp training in 2004 or 2005 and improve the quality of my lacrosse. My lacrosse is just fine. Ka Jo and I crossed paths in the Salt Lake City airport in 2019 as I was returning home unsuccessfully for my attemp from my attempt to save my Georgetown student status. Her hair no longer looked like a dead animal.
It is the ultimate hazing experience to run a high school based around a competition to see who can be the best Jew, then send us out in the world. My favorite verse in the Catholic Bible right now is “you are the children of your father the devil." That’s also classically one of the most anti-Semitic phrases. The thing is, we ourselves, the students and alumni of that wretched high school, are more anti-Semitic than most people I know. We were anti-Semitic when we threw each other under the bus to chase a false chimera of being the Regina George or Winkelvoss twin of Judaism.
skamjave - Sasha Katie Ally Mimi Jessica Ali Vicki Emily
My favorite member of skamjave is Reaper. My second favorite is Sa, who had the audacity to put Dave Matthews in her screen name. My third favorite is the woman who took her bra off in my room in Latter Day Saints Hospital. She trashed every single item in my hospital cell, and of course I let her.
The reason my lacrosse was so bad was because a woman taught me how to play lacrosse. I hired a college student to teach me how to play on the same field where we had tryouts that spring afternoon. Even the way I cradled and dribbled the lacrosse stick was offensive. But the varsity captain knew so much about lacrosse that he would tell I was taught by someone who uses a woman’s stick. I think my lacrosse is decent and has steraightened out now. I’m done with normal lacrosse sticks and have started teaching myself how to play with a longstick like Ja De. I’m going to go running tonihhht before it gets too dark, then shower.

2023.05.29 03:46 Fanluna Looking for advice

Hey guys,
I'm a fourth cycle applicant looking for tips to help get interviews :) feeling hella disappointed after this year.
OMSAS cGPA 3.94 MCAT 520 (132/127/130/131) Last year Casper: 4th quartile English, 2nd quartile French
ECs: Hospital volunteering for 4 years, various small non-clinical volunteering, a couple of clubs namely in philanthropy and pre-law and robotics, two "published" abstracts (lesser known journals) and an honours thesis, part time hospital job, casual tutoring, high school lifeguarding/swim instructor. References: honours prof, a supervisor from one of my job supervisors, and my volunteer coordinator.
I'm in my gap year working full time at the hospital I volunteered at. When writing my essays for UofT and Western, I had a bunch of current med students look at them and comment. No interviews there. Rs from Mac and Queens as well. I got interviews from McGill and uOttawa French, but I spent my time prepping (with current med students) for McGill (waitlisted in the 90s) and didn't prep much for uOttawa, which not-so-magically also landed me no acceptance. I'm just trying to see where I could do better other than MCAT and making sure this year is my last application cycle for better or for worse. Thanks!

2023.05.29 03:44 grahamecrackerinc A Roadmap member wants to connect with me, but there's a strike happening. What do I do?

Saturday, March 4, 2023. 6:45PM.
In the world of #ScreenwritingTwitter, a buddy of mine (@TSchrack) quote tweeted a thread from Roadmap's new marketing coordinator for a great opportunity for BIPOC male screenwriter to get their name and work in front of execs. As a BIPOC male screenwriter, I just had to pounce! It was his first day on the job – wished him congratulations, showed him my credentials, and he liked it.
Sunday, March 5, 2023. 8:05PM.
This man SLIDES into my DMs, asking ME for MY EMAIL ADDRESS!
To reiterate my initial reaction: "🧠🤯". Without hesitation, I chased it with an "😂 OK!" He asks if I used Roadmap's services or pitched to the website. Yes and no; I spoke with James Moorer (director of outreach at Roadmap).
Thursday, March 16, 2023. 9:49AM.
I get the email. He "appreciates my willingness to put my work there, values it more than anything, and wants to honor his investment in my work!" He left a Calendly link to below to schedule a 20 MINUTE MEETING so we can discuss my project, which could open to door from me being a writer to me being a writer signed to representation.
But then fate struck.
Mid March–April 2023.
My grandma went into the hospital for a hip replacement. She made it out, but needed a full month's recovery and physical therapy, which left me no time to myself to schedule a meeting, query reps or develop any projects. When it was time for her to go back to work, it happened.
Tuesday, May 2, 2023. 12:01AM.
The fifth Writers' Strike in nearly 15 years. I can still query reps, but I can't pitch to them, even if I'm not in the WGA. I understand why this strike needed to happen and I don't wanna sound selfish, but I need to look out for myself and get my priorities straight to jumpstart my career, and as long as this strike wages on (see 2007–08 strike), my chances of seeing my pilot on TV screens this year will be slim to none.
Long story short, I really really REALLY want to meet with the coordinator, but how do I stop myself from pitching my story and becoming a scab? Could use some advice...

2023.05.29 03:43 Traditional-Beat90 New fan roster

To be honest I tried my best remaking from my old roster I posted a while back, but I chose this one due to fan demanded characters, story, fight potential
ROR Animated Series Season 1 Round 1 Thor vs Lu bu(1-0) (Battle of Power and Strength)
Round 2 Zeus vs Adam(2-0) (Battle of Judgment and Independence)
Round 3 Poseidon vs Sasaki Kojiro(2-1) (Battle of Pride and Humanity)
Round 4 Hercules vs Jack the Ripper(2-2) (Battle of Justice and Malice)
ROR Season 2 part 1 Round 5 Shiva vs Vlad the impaler(3-2) (Battle of Destruction and Transformation)
Round 6 Susanoo vs Blackbeard(4-2) (Battle of the Seas)
Round 7 Hades vs Nikola Tesla(5-2) (Battle of dignity and hope)
Round 8 Apollo vs King Leonidas(5-3) (Battle of Prophecy and Rebellion)After seeing what the author did with Leonidas, bringing him earlier and his hate being justified for bringing him out this early, also with Leonidas advancing as a General after death would give Tesla’s speech more impact.
ROR Season 2 part 2 Round 9 Beelzebub/Satan vs Buddha(5-4)This is supposed to be the big mid match of the series and I think this matchup would be better than with zero imo. After reading round 6 I reading about how miserable Zero was and how hajun was handled was kinda cringe for a lack of batter words and I think the message of loving yourself could be approved upon with a character like beelzebub
ROR Season 3 part 1 Round 10 Horus vs Qin Shi Huang(6-4) (Battle of kingship)
Round 11 Anubis vs Rasputin(6-5) (this one is a given)
Round 12 Loki vs Simo Hayha(6-6) (Battle of tricks and traps)
Round 13 Odin vs Nostradamus(7-7) (Battle of wisdom and arrogance)
ROR Season 3 part 2 Round 14 Vidar vs Siegfried(7-8) (Battle of Vengeance and Revengeance

2023.05.29 03:42 Vidal-Baboon AITA for cutting ties with someone when they were in need?

I (f21) had a situationship with a man (m32) I know the age gap is questionable and a lot of people are going to have their opinions about that.
We met online and quickly met and got comfortable with each other and vibed well. He came across extremely charismatic and fun and always initiated plans to hang out, but it was in no means anything serious. Just a friendship with some fun. When I met him he was living with his sponsor and the sponsors girlfriend. And he was attending AA meetings weekly. I didn’t grow up knowing the life style he had and the world he came from. I was pretty sheltered. From what I knew, he was doing good for himself.
After about a month and a half of living in fantasy land with him I decided I wanted something more deep with someone but we could still be friends. We both sorta just moved on with our lives not contacting each other.
Until about a month later he randomly messages me saying he got kicked out recently and is at a hotel drinking. And he needed a friend. I know this is him relapsing and he needed someone but I knew I didn’t know how to handle these situations so I told him it wasn’t a good idea for me to go see him but I could talk to him through phone. He kept insisting he needed me as a friend with him so I went because I felt bad.
When I got there he was drunk, still drinking, encouraging me to drink and trying to make passes at me. After failing at those things he finally started talking. It was all deep and extremely dark and concerning which made my emotions get the best of me and we held each other and cried. I was just doing my best to comfort him. And as I was crying with him, he kept wanting to have sex. He was really pushing for sex. And I was uncomfortable and confused. I wanted to leave but I didn’t want to leave him alone.
At some point he was doing karaoke by himself in the room and it was getting late, so I suggested I leave since he seemed to be in better spirits. I had my key and wallet in my hand and he grabbed them from me in a playful way as in… oh come on, don’t be a downer and stay a little longer. So I did.
Eventually he asked me to go outside with him because he wanted to smoke. I don’t smoke but figured I could use some fresh air. As soon as we got out to the side door, he said he forgot his lighter and ran back to the room… I waited there for 10 minutes. It only took us a minute to get outside from his room. And I couldn’t get inside because I didn’t have the room key. The second set of doors to get in from the front locked at a certain time. I tried calling him, it went straight to voice mail. I know damn well this guy did not just abandon me then block me. And then I remember he took my keys. I’m a broke 21 year old so I wasn’t worried about my wallet but I started panicking about my car.
I’m crying walking out to the front of the hotel calling my best friend expecting my car to be gone, but it was still just sitting there. I sat by my car for about 5 minutes for this guy to finally call me back acting like nothing happened for me to be reacting the way that I am. His excuse was that he had to poop. And his phone was off.
It turned into this big argument just for him to say the whole reason why I’m here is that he needed help getting into rehab. Like it’s midnight at this point, he could’ve said something 4 hours ago.
I was extremely hesitant and put off because he made it really dramatic. Like making it seem like this big mysterious mission we’re gonna go on and for some reason no one in his family was willing to help him. Not even his best friend. Literally all he needed me to do was drive him. It would’ve been nice if it didn’t end up being 3 hours away though.
And again, I know nothing about these situations. I don’t know if there’s stigma around going to rehab, I thought it’s good to go to rehab but he was being real shady about the whole thing which made me think I wasn’t doing the right thing.
We both didn’t get any sleep because it took all night for him to get everything situated with his insurance and finding an open spot and him letting everyone know where he was going. Oh and by the way, they offered to send someone to pick him up. I still don’t know why he needed help. Anyways we left at 6am and got there at 9. He was very emotional and didn’t want to go which made me emotional. He was Literally sobbing and saying he doesn’t think he can do it. I cried with him and we were in the moment so we had an emotional movie like good bye make out. I cried the first 30 minutes driving home.
Anyways all this just for him to call me two days later to pick him up. He didn’t want to be there and his PO gave the okay to leave if he went to the hospital. I don’t really know how this stuff works. I felt obligated to drive another 3 hours to pick him up and 3 hours to take him where he needed to go. I know I’m being insensitive but it was all “what the heck” oh and also he said he regrets the kiss and feels bad because he has a girlfriend and the car ride was just awkward.
And for the next two months he’d call me needing something, food or a ride or whatever. I kinda dreaded helping him. It wasn’t from my heart and I knew he was using me but I thought I should be nice because I’d appreciate someone helping me if I was in his situation. My friends called me an enabler and I agreed. I refused to help him once and he got so mad and accused me of being jealous when I asked why his girlfriend can’t help him. He’s honestly emotionally draining me and I resented him. He was so obviously trying to manipulate me using his child for a sob story, getting me vulnerable to take advantage of me.
A few weeks after he’d leave me manic voice mails. Him saying if I don’t pick up he’s gonna jump in front of a bus or that he’s driving 80 on the backroads. I felt like an asshole for ignoring him and not caring. I did at first but he’s just crazy. But I also feel like an asshole for calling him crazy because he needs help but more from himself because i’m just enabling his behavior. I don’t know, he made me stop caring with all his suicide threats. I don’t like the person he made me be towards him. So I blocked him and his two new numbers.

2023.05.29 03:36 phlokezs How I became superstitious over night

Or, a little stitious, hehe.
This is something that happened to me a couple of years back. It’s still printed in my memory to this day, it being one of the weirdest, saddest and also most joyful thing to happen to me. It’s not big, per se, but the symbolic value it has is far off the charts.
So, let me get straight to it.
I grew up with a lot of cool people around me, and this one lady in particular, let’s call her L. L used to work with my mom before she retired, she was her closest friend and they hung out regularly, both with and without my dad and her husband.
L is what you can call that fun aunt who isn’t really your aunt by blood, but choice. Extremely funny, easy to be around and one of those women that a rebelling teenager can crack jokes with without being afraid of offending anyone. She was one of those people that would take «send more money» posts on socials seriously, and laughingly transfer like 4 bucks saying «hey, have a beer for me too on your vacation!».
L got cancer a couple of years back. It hit hard for me, but of course even more for my mom and dad. The funeral was packed. Of course, she touched so many people.
Here’s the bizarre part. We came into the chapel, my mom, dad, brother and I. I found a spot quite far back as most of the seats were taken, I was about to sit down and suddenly, my ass hitting the wooden benches I managed to squash a bee, therefore stinging me right there on my bum cheek. I screamed so freaking loudly and I can promise you everyone in there could hear that «FUUUUUUCK!!!» from that one girl who was red as a tomato in the middle of the chapel. It hurt so bad.
Luckily, it was approximately 20 minutes until the ceremony started, so while my ass started to swell and the pain was just too much, I took my parents car down to the pharmacy to get some pain relief cream so that I wouldn’t have to stand during the whole thing.
Got back, the funeral was beautiful and very witty, just as L was. It was definitely in her spirit.
Outside, after the ceremony was over, we were just hanging around waiting for the coffin to be carried into the funeral car. My mom and dad was talking to L’s son and daughter, and I went over to offer my condolances and to say sorry for screaming like a little baby. L’s son, let’s call him M, told me that it was totally fine, but asked me what happened.
I told him the story, and I expected him to chuckle a bit (this is very much his humour), but instead he stood there totally speechless just staring at me.
I was a bit taken back and asked if he was okay. This part is what gave me chills so far down my spine I have no idea if anything is gonna feel like that again.
His answer was this: «We were at the hospital a week a go, and one of the last things L talked about was life after death. She’s never been religious in any way, but I asked her IF she could choose to be an animal in her next life what would it be? And she said, straight up, I wanna be a bee, so that I can sting someone and that person will carry on my spirit.»
Life have never been the same since.

2023.05.29 03:35 Shellbelleeee Was it me? Was His Actions ok, and I was just overreacting? Sorry for long post.. I Feel Conflicted..

I just want to add trigger warnings: abuse, sleeping pill use, possible reactive abuse?, self harm/suicide ideation
Hello everyone! I am just really struggling with determining if I was the narcissist in a previous relationship that’s weighing heavy on me. I would like to state that before this relationship, I was in an all over abusive relationship (That was actually my 1st serious relationship, happened in high school) that was very traumatic. Within and after that relationship, that ex was telling me that no one would love me or love me like he does, would physically hurt me as he would tell me that ‘he is not hurting me, I am hurting myself’, blame me for everything in the relationship, his mom would make excuses for him even as she heard him hurting me.. It was a LOT. And I guess that was also why I was so susceptible to my next relationship which is the one I am inquiring about.
So, that relationship lasted 3 years.. I went to therapy.. A year and maybe a half later, I met another guy (which is the one I am more confused on and questioning myself the most..) My 1st bf was known as not a good guy so it was easier for me to come to terms with that it was not me? But this one… Everyone LOVES him… We met through a friend of mine at a theme park.. I guess for a good month he was trying to get my number from her (she was a good friend of mine at the time, she was dating one of his good friends, they knew each other. She took us to where he was). I got a text from him saying “Hey beautiful, can you guess who this is?” and it all started from there..
He had previously gotten out of a 4 year relationship, 2 months before we met (Stupid me; HOWEVER, i did not know how short of a time span it truly was until I went through his phone and laptop), but he made it seem like she was just cheating on him and not doing right by him majorly, he was over it, and it was done. I didn’t know his part until the 4th year when I went through his laptop and saw that he would call her names, he would be trying to be sexual with her friend which is the same girl who told him that he couldn’t cheat on me with anyone besides her and he agreed (Same girl that would be mentioned in a bit), and so on.
We ended up going to the same college, and hanging out a lot; However, even from month one he was trying to get with me and saying that he “had” to be with me because I was sweet, beautiful, xyz but he didn’t have time for that at the moment due to him just getting out of the relationship (which I was ok with tbh. But when mentioning that I don’t think I wanted to date he would be like why?… (As well as I think this is what got me too because he was not prioritizing a relationship so it did not seem like he would be using me). He would call me while he was at work a lot, and he even showed up to my house once randomly because I was trying to avoid hanging out with him and me and my friend had to lie and say I wasn’t there. He would explain a lot of how we would make sense together in a sense and why I should not be opposed to dating him..
Within the 4th month, he confessed that he loved me and hoped that I felt the same… In my gut I felt that it did not feel right… But everyone was saying that he liked me, everyone loved him, and he seemed like a good guy and totally opposite of my 1st ex… So I thought, maybe this is love and maybe I do love him… One night I stupidly explained what I been through before meeting him (my previous relationship and friendships) and how I just did not want to go through that again… He said he would never put me through anything like that, will treat me how I deserve like the princess I am, and how laid back he was (but I did not think laid back would mean flirting with other women in front of me or in general, etc which he would mention at a later time when bringing things up to him “Well I told you I was laid back”).. By this time I was lowkey babe, his princess, etc… His friends telling me that he really liked me, and I made him happy… That he talked about me a lot.. I thought maybe this was it…
Around month 8, he asked me out… Immediately a shift began… Right after he asked me out he stated “You’re lucky because there was someone else I was supposed to date”… I instantly knew that something was wrong… But at the same time… A thought that ran through my head was my 1st ex telling me how no one would ever love me like him and other things… and tbh I think I just went with it and accepted fate Ig. I got in his car and we drove off… But now that I even look back, he would question me sexually compared to other women.. call himself the “booty king”.. and talk about how he was sad that he lost his old phone containing photos of all the girls’ pics he had while we were talking… so.. Yeah… Ig that wasn’t even the 1st shift.. I guess I was just used to that type of treatment now that I think about it..
To add more information before getting to the main portion, before so much occurred, I did not mind him hanging out even alone with girls.. He made me feel safe and I trusted him and even told him that. To the point where he told me that he was going to Disney with the girl mentioned above and that she liked him, but I need to not worry because he wasn’t going to do anything and liked me and other stuff. This was after he told me he thinks we shouldn’t be talking to other people (so this occurred a little before he asked me out). However, during this time, if he saw me with a guy he seemed to get jealous. For example, I was saving the table, and the janitor who looked like a guy my age came over, we nodded, and he just kept working. He came back as the janitor moved and asked me if he was flirting with me and thought that I was lying about him not flirting with me. Another time, I went to the movie theatre with my friend and he brought it up a few times and was asking about it and claiming it was a date. However, he would keep stating that he was not the jealous type and his friends would too..
But anyways after we started dating, he immediately started ignoring me as I was talking and would always be on his phone. One such event was when we were headed somewhere with his friends… Once they got out of the car, and I began talking to him, he immediately got on his phone and was kind of ignoring me but giving ‘mhms’, ‘ohs’, and other sounds like that.. Eventually I went quiet.. When his girl friend 1st got back into the car, he immediately put his phone down and started conversating with her… I was hurt.. which led to him doing some actions and admitting that he did them because I was sad and wouldn’t tell him why and shrugged. He would be on his phone looking at girls.. Even when my parents were going through a divorce, and I was venting to him over skype.. He was just ignoring me.. and I could see through his glasses that he was just browsing on tumblr which already made me more sad and alone, then I saw him staring at and sharing a picture of a girl showing her butt, and I got upset and he got upset with me for being upset.. On our one year anniversary even, I was talking to him, and he was ignoring me.. But I caught him looking at a picture with girls showing their butts and just became quiet and upset.. He’d already called me insecure and such by that point..
Another incident which I’m sure sounds stupid and may just be really stupid.. Was 2 months after we dated.. I told him all that I wanted for my birthday was to take him to HHN for his first time.. He said he didn’t have any plans to go with anyone else and pinky promised me.. I would say maybe a couple of weeks later he told me he was going with one of his girl friends that worked there on that night, and I immediately called him.. He invited me to go, but I couldn’t because I was busy, and I asked if he could wait, and he brought up that he couldn’t just say no because he already told her yes. I brought up the pinky promises, and stupidly begged him if he could just wait.. He said he couldn’t and he had to go.. Later he posted on snapchat about how much fun he was having and how cool and crazy it was.. Later told me he just went with her because she could get him in for free.. which I would have paid if needed, but I didn’t know.. He would manipulate me into letting him do whatever because his ex did (For example, going to stay on the beach with his girl best friend, her mom, and her sister, but by this point he already kind of made it clear that he did not care about me, so I was uncomfortable with it, but he kept pushing until I said yes and would guilt trip me for being unsure).
During this 1st year, he already called me a whore for having guy friends, crazy, insecure because of above things etc. One incident we went to the club with one of his guy friends, I didn’t know the plan was to find girls for him (his guy friend) to get.. So while I was trying to dance and interact with them, I noticed he was just looking around and pointing out girls and kind of didn’t acknowledge me a lot of the night.. Which did make me sad.. I became standoffish, and that led to an argument and him hitting the steering wheel yelling at me and asking what the fuck is my problem with girls.. Which I remained silent after trying to explain.. Another incident is when at some point in the first couple of months I told him I would have sex with him.. We ended up at a resort because I have timeshares.. However, I got extremely sick to the point I couldn’t breathe and was worried. I did say I would have to pass on sex at the moment because I really could not breathe and didn’t feel well. He was more upset that I didn’t give him sex and said how I lied.. Which I really didn’t mean to.. and I did feel really bad about.
He would say how he didn’t care about how I felt about something, would go do that said thing, and then would come back and apologize after talking to one of his girl friends about it, and how she made him realize it wasn’t cool. He would be really mean and say mean things.. he would start denying his actions and words so I started keeping screenshots to make sure that what I had remembered was accurate.. Adults would tell me that I better take good care of him while this was happening and he would look at me and smile and do like a jerking movement with his head like "yeah you better" if that makes sense..
I noticed after a while, I couldn’t control my emotions… I started becoming more and more emotionally reactive. I became increasingly jealous and trying everything to get him to care.. I also begin to try to find ways to get him to understand how he was hurting me and kept thinking of ways to get him to stop.. When I would react he told me that he showed his friends or told them what I did and their reactions and comments.. He told them I was crazy.. After a while I asked him to stop talking about our relationship to his friends because I noticed he wouldn’t tell them why I was reacting the way I was which also leads me to question if it was me.. I began trying to try to control situations so I wouldn’t get any more hurt. I started becoming passive aggressive and started saying mean things.. I threw my toothbrush at the bathroom door once.. I started taking sleeping pills because I got anxiety when he would text me that he was going out. I started taking the pills as well because I couldn’t heal and move on from the things that had happened as fast as he would’ve liked.. I would try to leave but he would say what I wanted to hear of course.. But if I tried to talk to him about the things, he would hardly say anything or just be like “you’re right, I’m trash”, change the subject, or tell me he would break up with me if I brought it up again.. Eventually he would tell me how I needed help and kiss me on the forehead.. At one point, I asked him if we break up, would he consider trying to work on things in the future after we both do growing, and he responded by shaking his head and telling me only if I had changed… I always made him not want to do things or not want to go to things.. He was more cool than me and had more friends than me he would say or imply at times and even brought it up because I got more likes on my insta posts.. One day I would be wifey and he would be so in love with me and not want any other girls.. and the next day I should understand if he wanted to breakup so he can go be with other girls.. His family said in front of me that he could just go get another girlfriend.. and he would shrug his shoulders and repeat that to me..
Major heartbreak events would happen after I helped him in someway, and he would feel a type of way that I wouldn’t want to help him or do things.. Like I helped get him jobs, get back in school, be on time for work, took care of him when he almost died (which led to a major event I will talk about in a few) he would tell me or show me that he didn’t care about me and I couldn’t count on him to be there for me either.. Like when I tried to tell him that I am becoming more severely depressed due to stuff, he was just like “I care less and less” because I brought up depression due to different things.. Which I know.. Stupid for staying.. However.. He would be “hurt” that I didn’t believe that he loved and cared for me.. That the trust I had was diminishing.. He would ask me why I thought he was lying to me and tell me that there were and are no other girls.. Everything led up to the 4th year..
After being with him in the hospital after he could’ve died.. I was with him and making sure he was ok afterwards.. Something was going to happen with a girl I didn’t feel comfortable with him being alone with and he told me.. surprise.. that he didn’t care and had to go.. Told me she said I was pretty.. I asked him if I could go through his phone a couple of days later, I guess I just needed that final push.. I found so much, from him talking to other women about our relationship but being more concerned about how we were having less and less sex, him cheating and flirting, him texting his friend about how he thought him and his ex were getting back together, etc. And I just lost it.. I woke him up shaking him asking why me.. just why… and before I knew it I slapped him.. It was like slow motion, I tried to stop myself but I couldn’t.. I immediately felt guilt.. and that was the first time I ever hit someone.. I know it’s not ok.. but that started an altercation and he dug his nails into me and so on.. I went to the bathroom bleeding.. and the next day.. He asked what happened to me and the marks.. I told him I just had a depressive episode.. and he told me that I shouldn’t hurt myself like that.. Like he didn’t remember anything.. It was like me and him switched places.. He began being afraid to communicate with me.. and to this day.. It’s been almost 3 years.. I feel extremely guilty and re-enact that night but begging myself to stop.. to just leave.. I still feel angry at myself.. His close friends were like “he really tried.. he really loved you.. ah I don’t think he’s like that”.. and sometimes it makes me doubt my experience..
At the end of the relationship is something I can’t forget.. He smirked and told me that he knew he’d be ok.. and that he already moved on and accepted everything.. and that has been something hard on me too.. I removed him from a lot but stupidly texted him a month or so later apologizing..
After the relationship when I would hear or see him or his name, I would have little panic attacks.. everything would go blurry and it felt like I couldn’t breathe.. Therapy isn’t helping.. I feel like I can’t move on and sometimes I idealize or day dream about suicide heavily..
I keep trying to stop myself from looking at his postings about loyalty.. being faithful.. giving everything to the girl who is always down for him.. not lying.. how his friends post how amazing he is and his quotes about cheating and such.. but it’s like a bad addiction I just can’t seem to break.. I keep asking myself was it me.. and if I’m just the narcissist.. He did take the blame and apologize near the end of the relationship and then once I reached out and apologized for my actions after the relationship.. But I still am so confused..
I feel consumed by rage.. envy.. Jealousy.. I see him being blessed with everything and thanking God and Jesus which diminished my faith.. If it wasn’t me, then how come he is getting so many blessings and get to be so happy.. I keep saying how it’s not fair.. I feel guilt.. I feel shame.. I don’t trust myself.. I can’t tell who I truly am after lashing out.. I feel like I want to give up.. Like it’s never going to end.. I keep seeing things about narcissistic abuse, and then I get scared because what if it was me….. Then I feel guilty for not wanting to watch any more things on narcissism or abuse for a while.. I keep praying, begging for it all to go away.. I have resorted to tarot and spells.. Faking it til I make it.. Nothing.. and then I get frustrated.. I keep reliving and trying to play things out differently if that makes sense.. I feel so alone, and I self-isolate so much.. It’s almost 3 years.. I am just confused.. and I am sorry for this being so long and possibly confusing and all over the place..

2023.05.29 03:33 ThrowRAbcynot I (36F) need advice pursuing relationship w someone (40M) I haven’t known long or child’s father (36M) LONG

I met my child’s father 4 years ago. We have 1 child together (3M) and a pretty textbook toxic relationship. We didn’t know eachother long before i got pregnant and it was hell. I think I cried almost everyday and when I gave birth I thought they were gonna kick him out bc we couldn’t even get along then. He yelled at me, made me cry, and even brought up how I didn’t thank him for the $4 he spent on me at McDonald’s on our way to the hospital. All while I was in labor lol I’m no saint but he’s next level.
 We’ve tried over the years and haven’t really been in any relationships w other ppl. Hes always seemed distant and closed off. We have a sexual relationship mainly but we talk/text a lot, I spend some weekends at his house, or we watch movies on the phone( we live 3 hours apart). But I still don’t feel like I know him. I’ve never felt like we were a family. A year ago I met a guy on hinge and went on some dates. BD was furious. After a lot of arguing I stopped seeing that guy and we tried again. And tried again and tried again and again. We stopped trying a few weeks ago and then couple weeks later hinge guy reached out to me. We’ve gone on multiple dates, he’s nice to me, and right away deleted his hinge account and said he didn’t want to see anyone else. I like him but I feel like something is missing. I think it’s that toxic spark I’m use to. He’s so smart, we have similar values/outlooks and I feel like I can be myself w him. We were both married for 10+ years before getting divorced while BD hasn’t had a relationship longer than 2 years and it shows. Now my struggle. I had to tell BD I was going on a date bc I wasn’t going to lie and eventually after a lot of rage texting, he told me he had a woman he would talk to off and on over the years and how she said she’d love to meet our child and how I should get use to someone else being around all the time blah blah blah. Basically if I don’t want to try and work things out he’s gonna try w her. He thinks we can turn things around. I mentioned how hinge guy has taken me on more dates in the last week than he has in 3 years and he said he didn’t mind (thanks?) going on dates with me but felt I wasn’t committed or loyal to him. I listed everything I’ve done to show that but it’s like nothing I ever do is recognized. He found someone he likes, speaks well of, and must see a future with. But it’s like my dumb brain says maybe this time will be different, maybe we CAN turn things around. It’s like I’m not ready to let go and maybe he isn’t either. Which person would you pursue a relationship with? I feel sick over this whole thing. No matter what I feel like I’m losing in some way. I’d love for our child to have parents that are together. 
tldr- should I take a chance on someone I haven’t known long or continue trying w my childs father. We’ve had many terrible years trying but I would prefer our child to have his parents together. Maybe things will finally be different or I’m continuing to be an idiot.

2023.05.29 03:31 Wrestling_gamer_0323 The Non-Canon Argument

Tl;dr All official material is canon in its own way to its own timeline.
Anyone who's watched Dragon Ball has heard the arguments of about the canon of Dragon Ball, with everyone fighting for their favorite movie or series to be part of the DB canon, while others say that the only thing that counts as canon is the manga. It's an argument that's been happening forever and is especially bad between people who love and hate GT.
I'd like to go over why I think the argument of canon isn't as clear cut as everyone says and why I think it's a bit of a meh argument to be having to begin with, especially and specifically the argument that "GT is as canon as fanfiction". Which is nonsense btw.
Firstly, I want to go over a couple quotes from Toriyama that I'm sure many of you have seen,
"I take the movies as “stories in a different dimension from the main story of the comic”. I’m entirely just an audience member for them."
"Being a lazy bum by nature, I was absurdly happy when I managed to safely finish up Dragon Ball’s serialization, and finally be released from Deadline Hell. The TV anime people wanted to continue for just a little bit more, but I [just couldn’t do] any more than that… And so, I left the Dragon Ball anime completely up to the anime staff, story and all. That was Dragon Ball GT.... Dragon Ball GT is a grand side-story of the original Dragon Ball, and it’ll make me happy for us to watch and enjoy it together."
Thanks to u/Riceatron for the post I pulled these quotes and sources from.
To me what's being said here paints the picture that Toriyama fully accepts GT and movies as being within the canon of the Dragon Ball universe, but sees them as alternate timelines, or dimensions as he puts it. I think the argument could be made that any official material made by those with the rights to Dragon Ball are somewhat canon and are especially more canon than a fanfiction, at least in the eyes of Toriyama.
Does this mean that GT is a continuation of Super or that we'll see SSJ 4 in Super? Absolutely not, as they're still separated into different timelines, just both are within the same universe and are both canon in their own ways. Essentially, canon does not matter until unofficial material is involved.
Think of Manga Goku, Anime Goku, Super Goku, GT Goku, Movie Goku, and the multiple other versions of him as essentially being the same the many different versions of super hero comics. Like how in one comic Superman may be weak enough to be injured by bullets, while in another he may be a literal indestructible god. Both versions of Superman are canon, but they are not the same Superman, they are from alternate timelines. Dragon Ball functions under the same concept.
This means the material considered to be canon is basically up to the individual watchers and whatever they decide to cling to as long as they don't try to say they overlap, which is honestly pretty cool to me.
Btw, I do not blame anyone who says "non-canon" instead of taking the time to say "within a different timelines continuity", as the first is far simpler and easier, I just think it becomes a problem when people try to use the non-canon argument to invalidate someones love for a certain aspect of the series or to say something as untrue as, "it's as canon as fanfiction".
Also, I'm fully aware I'm probably not the first or last to say this stuff and that I'm likely gonna draw hate towards myself, but I feel like it needed to be said.

None mint. Reasonable value estimate or worthless?
I’d like to know if I should upcycle these for some parents’ kids or try to get an amount?
Just in case, thought I’d post here.

2023.05.29 03:26 playingtricksonme My dog is suffering because of me, I am heartbroken

TW: impending animal death
I love my dog. She is almost 17 and grew up with my son. She is the light of my eye. She has been going downhill and after what we think was a seizure last week she started going downhill fast. I may have the times messed up, days are a blur.
This was her 4th episode and our vet called it an “old dog syndrome”. Every time she got a little bit better but not all the way better. This has been over the course of a year. I’m not convinced they aren’t seizures.
Our dog cannot ride in a car. She used to love it but now she hyperventilates. She has an issue with breathing sometimes because of some issue she developed recently and she was too old for surgery. So basically we have to keep her calm or she gets worked up and can’t catch her breath until we can calm her down.
My son has never known life without our dog. They were both babies when they met. He also graduated from high school on Friday. I knew after this last episode it was time for her to go over the rainbow bridge. I worked it into casual conversations so it wouldn’t come as a surprise to my son.
Here is where I fucked up. I called and scheduled an in home euthanasia, along with a paw print and hopefully it will be a peaceful and loving passing. My vet said he could do it that day or when he gets back from vacation on Wednesday. I said I think she will be fine a week and we will plan out this epic week.
For a couple days she ate steak every night and loved it. She was drinking in her picky way but drinking as normal. We have ice cream waiting for her.
She refused food and water a full day. I said shit and tried everything I could to find someone who could come do an emergency euthanasia in home with no luck. I offered to pay double for people to go outside their range to us but no. We are on some cancellation lists but it is looking like our appointment Wednesday is the soonest.
The day after she refused to eat or drink I got some pedalite and a child medicine dropper. I’ve been giving her droppers full of pedalite and she has been responsive to it. She went pee 2 times, although today she hasn’t been able to stand much. I don’t think she will make it outside again.
She even drank some water this morning when my husband was taking a shower. I did give her a gabapentin because her body is giving out on her so I want her to rest. She has been resting and when she wakes up I sit with her and pet her, give her more liquids, and just love on her until she goes back to sleep or gets up and walks around for a bit. The walking is hard because she can’t really get up and falls a lot. Sometimes though she hops up and strolls down the hall with a pep in her step though.
I hate that she is suffering. I hate that I thought she would be fine for a week. I hate that I was worried more about her passing traumatizing my son than her actual passing.
I also wasn’t always the best mom. I always snuggled her at night so we had that going for us. I didn’t like to play, she has son and husband for that. She would try to get me to play but I never would.
I can think of so many times I should have taken her for a walk her I didn’t.
She had a joyful life. We spoiled her and took her on adventures. I feel like we each brought so much joy into each other’s lives, but I worry I could have given her a better life.
I don’t know how to process this while being strong for the family. Thank you for letting me get this out.

2023.05.29 03:20 Zorubark Scenes that I really want to see animated to see how the anime community reacts, my top 5(in no specific order)

1, Aqua uses emotional acting and thinks about Ai and confronts his past self
I think for all the people who just watched episode one and said they cried, I think it's gonna be a really impactful scene, what aqua feels in it is very human, I think many people, even without PTSD can relate to feeling guilt when being happy, and that they're not allowed to feel good, and honestly, the scene where child aqua runs crying to ai made me almost tear up, that dream he has, that will never be real. Some people talk about how it's kinda weird aqua's situation with ai, "he loves her, but how exactly??" Well, I think that scene shows Aqua's feelings in a really understandable way. People also complain about him being too edgy, I think these moments where he is vulnerable are important for people to understand that Aqua is depressed and traumatized and that affects his behavior a lot.
2, Ruby gets hungry for revenge + goro's skeleton
I think that will really change how people perceive ruby, right now everyone talks about the parallel that Aqua is in a dark path and ruby has moved on, I saw a bunch of youtube videos with that and I thought "hehehe.. NOT!" and I wonder how it's gonna be, how people are gonna react to ruby's personality change and her manipulative attitudes like on the cosplay arc
3, Hikaru Kamiki reveal
I don't know what to say, I just think it will be epic, he comes with a bang, or should I say, a splat. Seeing Yura's star eye and then Kamiki will ignite anime onlies theories a lot and I love imagining it! Because the Hikaru stuff isn't even fully resolved yet, we don't even know why he kills. And also, waiting for the "hikaru is just like me fr fr" memes
4, Akane death flag
Akane death flag
5, Crow Girl
I love crow girl and I wander what people would think of her

2023.05.29 03:18 seanpbnj [Success story !MATT!] 1-5k for 1-5 person teams [aGoT !MATT! aGoT]

Apologies for the odd title, long story but it is intentional sry mods
  1. This is a real post
  2. TL;DR = Looking for 1-5 person teams to finalize a mobile fantasy card game (Beta version w/ some left to go) @ 1-5k / mo
  3. Long Version Have Fun = See Below....
  4. A Game of Tribute (Mobile fantasy card game)
  5. Turn based strategy mini game and PVP (single device) and online (multi-device)
aGoT is a game that started here on gameDev about.... 5-6 years ago? Ish? I hired a few people for a pet project and met quite a few, but one guy (!MATT!) from the UK seemed to really understand. After a LOT of sht (life sht, obv) we got to the point to make a demo and get a bigger company (TekRevol) to finalize it! After some more sht (life sht, obv, twas the roarin 20s) FINALLY got to the point to say success!! Almost
  1. BUT I haven't heard from my guy Matt in about 2 years. I am hoping he's still out there (and legit offering some short term options for some developers/programmers).
  2. Fantasy card game focused on gameplay / interaction / skills and less graphics / UI / animation. Mediaeval
  3. Need 1-4 programmers familiar with unity ($1-5k per month)
  4. Need 1 project manager to help oversee when I'm too busy ($1-5k per month)
