2023.06.10 23:00 AutoModerator What are the benefits and side effects of Ashwagandha?
What is ashwagandha?
The ashwagandha plant is one of the
most powerful herbs. Various parts of the ashwagandha plant are used for medicinal purposes, with ashwagandha extract mainly being used in supplements. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, a natural agent that reportedly helps the body cope with stress. As a result, it’s believed to be effective at helping reduce levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. It may also therefore potentially help with anxiety and depression too.
What does ashwagandha do? Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Ashwagandha is known to help reduce stress and anxiety. One way it does this is by reducing levels of cortisol, a hormone that is released in response to stress. Additionally, ashwagandha has been shown to improve mood and cognitive function, both of which can be negatively affected by stress. Enhances Cognitive Function
Ashwagandha has also been shown to improve cognitive function. One study showed that it improved memory and reaction time in healthy adults. Another study found that it improved task performance in people with ADHD. Additionally, ashwagandha may help prevent age-related cognitive decline. Boosts Energy Levels
Ashwagandha has been shown to boost energy levels. One study showed that it increased stamina and reduced fatigue in people with chronic fatigue syndrome. Additionally, ashwagandha may help improve exercise performance.
Additionally, ashwagandha may also help improve sleep quality and reduce inflammation. These effects can all contribute to enhanced energy levels. Regulates Blood Sugar Levels
Ashwagandha has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels. One study showed that it improved insulin sensitivity in people with type II diabetes. Additionally, ashwagandha may help reduce fasting blood sugar levels and improve symptoms of diabetes.
Additionally, ashwagandha may also help lower cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease. These effects can also contribute to improved blood sugar control. Lowers Blood Pressure
Ashwagandha has been shown to help lower blood pressure. One study showed that it improved blood pressure in people with hypertension. Additionally, ashwagandha may help reduce stress and anxiety, both of which can contribute to high blood pressure. Is ashwagandha safe?
Ashwagandha is generally considered safe for most people. However, it can cause side effects such as stomach upset, diarrhea, and vomiting in some people. If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, it's best to avoid ashwagandha. What happens when you take ashwagandha daily?
As a sleep aid, ashwagandha may help people get to sleep faster and stay asleep for longer. It is also used to promote male potency. Ashwagandha has a variety of health benefits, including reduced blood sugar levels, inflammation, mood, memory, stress and anxiety relief, as well as an increase in muscle strength and fertility. Depending on your requirements, dosages vary from 250 to 500 mg per day for at least one month.
When it comes to stress relief, ashwagandha may be as effective as some prescription medications. A 2010 study found that the herb was just as effective as lorazepam (Ativan) in reducing stress and anxiety. click the link below to learn more about abhwagandha, and its real health benefits.

THE BANKERS' MANIFESTO
"Capital must protect itself in every way ...Debts must be collected and loans and mortgages foreclosed as soon as possible. When through a process of law the common people have lost their homes, they will be more tractable and more easily governed by the STRONG ARM OF THE LAW (Cops) applied by the central power of leading financiers. People without homes will not quarrel with their leaders. This is well known among our principle men now engaged in forming an imperialism of capitalism to govern the world. By dividing the people we can get them to expend their energies in fighting over questions of no importance to us except as TEACHERS OF THE COMMON HERD." (Taken from the Civil Servants' Year Book, "The Organizer" January 1934.)
When, fellow "Strong-Arms-of-the-Law", Americans are now losing 4,000 homes, 2,000 farms, 2,500 businesses per week to the Money Vampires who made the prior statement. Is it just a coincidence? How many homes, businesses and farms have you helped to take away from good Americans for the IRS/Banksters? For those Officers who still do not know it, "YES, THE IRS IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE WORLD ORDER PLAN TO DIVEST AMERICANS OF THEIR WEALTH AND MAKE THE PEOPLE THEMSELVES PAY FOR THEIR OWN NATIONAL DESTRUCTION."
The above should make every Officer stop and think before assisting the bankers or "their" IRS government revenue agents.
It happens a thousand times a day across this land that our fellow Officers are unknowingly made a party to fraud and theft. And if you are one such Officer, then YOU unknowingly become the "executioners" for the men behind this diabolical system. Take heart, Officer. You can learn, as many others have, how to be a VAMPIRE KILLER, uphold your oath to protect the American People, and at the same time stay within the law.
MEDIA BLACKS OUT THE FACTS"BUT SURELY, IF THIS WORLD CONSPIRACY WERE TRUE I WOULD HAVE HEARD ABOUT IT IN THE DAILY NEWS!"
As in all investigations, it always comes down to, "How can we prove our case?" We personally feel it's hard to top the proof coming from the mouths of the very ones involved in this treacherous un-American program. Here's one terrific example. John Swinton, the former Chief of Staff for the New York Times, was one of America's best loved newspapermen. Called by his peers "The Dean of his Profession", John was asked in 1953 to give a toast before the New York Press Club, and in so doing made a monumentally important and revealing statement. He is quoted as follows:
"There is no such thing, at this date of the world's history, in America as an independent press. You know it and I know it. There is not one of you who dares to write your honest opinions, and if you did, you know beforehand that it would never appear in print. I am paid weekly for keeping my honest opinions out of the paper I am connected with. Others of you are paid similar salaries for similar things, and any of you who would be so foolish as to write honest opinions would be out on the streets looking for another job. If I allowed my honest opinions to appear in one issue of my paper, before twenty-four hours my occupation would be gone. The business of the journalists is to destroy the truth; to lie outright; to pervert; to vilify; to fawn at the feet of mammon, and to sell his country and his race for his daily bread. You know it and I know it and what folly is this toasting an independent press? We are the tools and vassals of rich men behind the scenes. We are jumping jacks, they pull the strings and we dance. Our talents, our possibilities and our lives are all the property of other men. We are intellectual prostitutes."
Hard to believe? If there is any doubt -- read on.
RICHARD M. COHAN, Senior Producer of CBS political news said: "We are going to impose OUR AGENDA on the coverage by dealing with the issues and subjects WE choose to deal with."
RICHARD SALANT, former President of CBS News stated: "Our job is to give people not what they want, but what WE decide they ought to have."
And what is their "agenda"? What do they believe we, the American people THE COMMON HERD, "...ought to have"? "

2023.06.10 22:56 HeadDuty4486 Will Prednisone affect IBD testing?
Hi! I just started on a 6 day course of prednisone 4 mg per tablet. I have a colonoscopy and endoscopy coming up in a month. They are suspecting IBD. My primary care dr gave me prednisone since I’ve been in such severe pain and I can’t wait a month without any treatment. It’s only been a day on it and I already feel considerably better. Not 100 % at all but manageable now.
My question is will me being on this for a week affect the results of my colonoscopy? Will they still be able to see IBD if it is there, even if the prednisone helps stop some of the inflammation?
I will be telling my gastroenterologist that they started me on a prednisone so hopefully they will take that into consideration and also the fact that I’m doing a lot better on it.

2023.06.10 22:55 vikCSonly What are the dos and don’ts in a Chinese wedding?
One of my closest friends is getting married to his long time girlfriend. They’re Chinese and I’m Indian. Obviously I’m invited to their wedding. I’ve been to many Malay and Indian weddings before but this is my first time attending a Chinese one.
My friend kinda warned me that both sides of the family are not usually close to Indians so I’m probably going to be one of the few or the only Indian in a wedding of about 500-700 people.
Ngl this is probably gonna be really awkward. The possibility of being the only Indian makes me nervous because I’ll stick out like a sore thumb if I unintentionally did something rude or embarrassing. Nevertheless I’ll still be there to celebrate the happiest day of my boy’s life
Can someone walk me through me the process of how the average Chinese wedding experience is like? What are the usual gifts? How long are the ceremonies? What is generally expected from the guests?

2023.06.10 22:55 Dapper_Breakfast_152 Will I withdraw again if I take suboxone for just one day?
It’s day 8 without subs. This has been a week from hell. •Day 1 : Didn’t feel too uncomfortable, mental cravings mainly •Day 2 : Started to feel uncomfortable during the day, night time rolls around and I try to sleep and it feels as though someone is constantly tickling my feet and sides. Got about 6 hours of sleep •Day 3 : Starting to really feel the affects of the withdrawals during the day. Crying out of no where for no reason. Night time rolled around and only got 4 hours of sleep •Day 4 : woke up extremely nauseous but couldn’t throw up. Sleep was non existent at this point •Day 5 : woke up violently throwing up, fetal position in the shower for the whole day. No sleep that night either •Day 6 : still violently puking. Sweating everywhere. Cold sweats and hot flashes. Went to the hospital for an IV drip. 4 hours of sleep •Day 7 : finally got some sleep, starting to feel better, no more nausea or vomiting Day 8 : physical cravings gone, mental cravings still there. I sound like an idiot for wanting to take them again. I know it’s all mental but my question is, if I just take them for one day, would I go through this whole process again? Thanks in advance
EDIT TO ADD : I was taking 8 mg of suboxone a day for 6 months

2023.06.10 22:51 sphill0604 My evaluation of my pet insurance-return on investment
Hi everyone, I wanted to post this to help some people decide whether to get pet insurance or not. I recently evaluated the cost of the insurance vs what they paid. This is my experience with 2 smallish dogs. I got my pet insurance when they were 7 and now they are 14. In those years I figure the premiums I have paid for each averaged $75/mo. This insurance was cheaper in the beginning but has increased as they have aged. I got $500 deductible with 90% coverage. So the total I have paid for each dog about $6300, for the 7 yrs coverage. For Dog A, I had 12 claims totaling $6906. And the amount approved and paid for him was $976. For Dog B, I had 11 claims totaling $4946, and the amount approved and paid was $954.00 So for Dog A- $6300 insurance premiums + $6906 expenses = $13,206 total expense, with a payment rate of roughly 7% ($976.). But for the pet insurance company the profit on me is roughly 85% And for Dog B-$6300 insurance premiums + $4946 expenses= $11,246 total expense, with a payment rate of roughly 8% ($954.). And for the pet insurance company the profit on me is another 85% here
My policy does not cover preventatives, annual exams, or dental work. In addition the $500. deductible is per diagnosis, so if I go in with doggy diarrhea, the $500 must be met before anything is even eligible for coverage. A limp, $500. deductible….etc. This means you must file paperwork knowing you will not get paid, but in case it happens again. If the diarrhea is for an issue down the line, it won’t even apply to that diagnosis., if the limp turns out to be a slight ACL tear, that’s when another diagnosis requires another $500 deductible. If like my dogs, they have several issues, the deductibles certainly add up., and you must keep track of all that to get payment when deductibles are met.
I bought the insurance, like many others, thinking if something really bad happens they will be covered. But the truth is…it is a false sense of security., and a VERY expensive one. You have to fight to get your invested money back. Of those claims I mentioned, I had to appeal denied claims decisions many times, sometimes I won and sometimes I did not.
I will keep these policies in place for my 2 Senior Dogs, but my next dogs, no. Instead, I will set aside the premium amount in a separate savings account, and use as needed. I know some can’t budget that way, but I can, and will. I just wanted those that are interested, to know, that this IS NOT a cheaper alternative. In fact, I understand now why so many companies are getting into the pet care insurance business.
Of course this is only my experience, some may have a different view. I just thought I would share

2023.06.10 22:50 Glum-Kale-8120 2012 Volvo S60 Not Starting
Apologies for the length of this post, but I want to provide all the detail I can.
The car in question is a 2012 Volvo S60 T5 with 99,500 miles on the odo. My daughter called me two weekends ago to tell me her car starting shaking while in a Starbucks drive through. I told her to park it and I would go look at it. From what she described, I figured it was a cylinder misfire. The car is from the generation of Volvo 5-cylinders that are oil burners, but I did not think it had anything to do with that as I have tried to train her to check the oil and stay on top of it.
When I got to the car, I tried to crank it to see the issue for myself, but it would only turn over for a few seconds and then stop trying to crank. I checked the oil and it was low, but only about half a quart.
I had the car towed to my home, and last weekend I replaced the ignition coil packs and spark plugs and put in a new battery as the old one was 5 years old (in Florida heat) and was testing marginal. When I went to crank the car, I got a click, but nothing else. The click was not the multiple clicks of a low battery charge, just a single click/thunk kind of sound.
I did some Google-fu and determined it was likely a starter issue, so I pulled the starter and had it tested, and it was indeed bad. So, I replaced the starter, after hand-cranking the crankshaft to ensure the engine was not seized, and voila, the engine cranked over. The car did not, however, start. After checking the spark plugs to make sure they were gapped well and that the wiring connections to the coils packs were solid, I tried again today to crank the car, and nothing but a click again.
I am smelling fuel and I know the battery is good because I took it back to AutoZone to be tested. The starter is new, too, so I now find myself out of ideas. The car is not throwing any codes other than those from battery disconnection that I cleared.
So, anyone have any ideas about what to look for next? I just purchased new cars for my daughters last week due to this issue, so I am just trying to get the Volvo running so I can sell it. I appreciate any insight the folks on this sub can provide.

2023.06.10 22:48 Lessemsaurus Shantungosaurus
Shantugosaurus, have you heard his name? Shantungosaurus was the biggest, most MASSIVE ornithischian dinosaur of all time! Shantungosaurus was so huge he rivalled the size of even the titanosaurs! He was 16.6 meters from head to tail and weighed a whopping 13 god-damn tons! His jaws were packed with 1,500 teeth. This, paired with his hard, keratinous beak, would be perfect for stripping the leaves off of branches and slicing the arms off of predatory therapods. I would also like you to know that there is NOTHING but a puny 74 million year gap stopping this dinosaur chad from busting through your walls and trampling you to death. In conclusion, Shantungosaurus was the biggest chad to ever live, and you are nothing compared to it.

2023.06.10 22:46 DuncanStudios2000 Chapter 1 pt 2/8 of my book The Wise
This book is set on another planet called Terragyn, and Draco is the Queen of the Elementals and all the planet... This book is set in the year 2065... Draco and the others are part of a humanoid race called Terragons that can live over 10,000 years... So in this book she's about 2,965 years old and her son is about 500+ years old... Zorr-EL on the other hand is a Centurian and they can live for over 80,000 years... Dan-AL is Draco's son... Here it is...
Zorr-EL is by far the wisest and most knowledgeable person in the universe, she's around 24,600 years old. She is the smartest Centurian to ever exist and has knowledge that spans for over 20 millennia, she has memorized all 679,465,923,512,094 books (and counting) in the Library of the Centurians. She knows more about this universe than OUR own scientists, she has wisdom as vast as a black hole is deep. Every week over 15,740 new books flood in to the library, to in which she reads; she can read 1,200 words per minute and has excellent edetic memory. Edetic memory is controlled primarily by the posterior parietal cortex of the parietal lobe of the brain. This is the part of the brain through which visual stimuli are processed, and images retained. Zorr-EL also has hyperthymesia syndrome, which is like an enhanced version of photographic memory. Now, Draco has some ability to be a knowledgeable person, but most of her wisdom comes from experience and not books, this is why Draco is a better ruler and Zorr-EL wouldn't be able to take her place. Since Zorr-EL relies solely on what the books say and not what experience says. For this, Draco is technically smarter than her, but does not contain the ability to retain vast knowledge like Zorr-EL can. Zorr-EL is the official teacher of the school of Fireborne and the personal teacher for Dan-AL. Of course Dan-AL does not like her know it all attitude, he doesn't mind her teaching. Zorr-EL tries to make it fun for him, but where she's smart in knowledge and wisdom, she lacks in fun and humor. Dan-AL sat quietly in his seat, Zorr-EL wrote on the blackboard. The chalk squeaked as it rubbed against the porcelain enamelled steel. Zorr-EL turned to the class. "Today we are going to learn about, other planets and THEIR life!" Zorr-EL said to the class. "Now, first we're going to learn about Earth and it's people..." A student raised her hand. "Yes Marcella?" "Why do we always talk about Earth? They're not that interesting..." The girl said. Zorr-EL smiled. "Well, they may not be interesting, but they are our allies..." "Draco has good friends on Earth, and it's a nice planet with wonderful life..." Zorr-EL opened a book up. "Now turn your pages to 365 and I'll read with you..." The class turned their pages. "Today we'll be learning of the great war that happened in their year 2030..." "Now, when the team known as The Defenders of Earth we're created, they protected their leading city, known as 'Seattle' from a creature known as 'Megasaur'..." "When they did this the people of their planet accepted them as the official protectors of the World, hence the name 'Defenders of Earth'..." "Later on more enhanced people began to come out of hiding, why is that?" A boy raised his hand. "Firgus?" "The stones of enhancement began getting found by them..." He said. Zorr-EL nodded. "Yes..." "Later on, more enhanced people began to appear and the Defenders of Earth had a harder time to keep them under control..." "Soon after the Lizardians came to Earth to destroy it..." A boy raised his hand. "Yes, Herald?" "Are there any more Lizardians left?" He asked Zorr-EL sat down on her desk. "Well yes, of course there are..." "But they aren't going to attack Earth again..." "Especially since your Queen is protecting it!" The kids chuckled. "Also, the Defenders of Space protect Earth as well..." "Why?" a kid asked. "I believe it is because Earth is a rich planet with perfect weather and perfect temperatures... So a lot of evil beings out there want to rule over the World.." "Earth is full of water and life, it has rare elements you can't find out here, and it is just a beautiful planet..." "The people of that World are lucky to have it!" Dan-AL sighed, this was boring, why bother talk about a planet who can't even protect itself from silly Lizardians? Zorr-EL walked around the class. "Now can anyone tell me when the Defenders of Earth we're founded?" "Why?" Dan-AL asked. "Excuse me?" Zorr-EL questioned. "Well, what have the people of Earth done for us?" "And why bother talk about them, they don't even live as long as we do... Seems a little useless..." Zorr-EL walked over to Dan-AL's desk. "Life isn't about how LONG you live, it's about how you live it..." She said. Dan-AL sighed. "Why don't we just learn about OUR people?" He asked. Zorr-EL walked over to the front of the class. "The people of this planet is learnt enough, the people of Earth are far from knowledge..." Dan-AL sighed again.

2023.06.10 22:45 TonyMcTony [Pyanodon] Py Sci Pack 2 automated at 190 hours
| || | submitted by TonyMcTony to factorio [link] [comments]
Since I sunk so many hours into this mod, thought I'd provide a sort of journal entry for my progress. This will be a long-ish post, so if you are not interested in my horrible life decisions, just scroll through and enjoy the pictures. I hope with this post, i can give some insight to the people behind me progressing in the modpack. And i hope to keep myself sane enough to keep going and write about my adventures to the next sci pack milestone, and eventually Pyrrhic Victory! Background:
I started Factorio about a year ago, didn't really like it at first when i was playing through the tutorial, and actually stopped. I remember thinking "wow I just pipe water to the boiler, add some coal and my stuff are all powered?" that was sort of a turn off for me. But then after giving it another try, i decided to stick with it and try to launch a rocket.
I played the default setting at first, and didn't like the pacing. I found myself advancing too fast through the tech tree. I got halfway through Blue science and didn't even really have a solid production of the components yet and felt like i was drowning. I restarted with marathon mode and it really clicked for me. Letting me learn about the basics before giving access to too many toys. In that mode i learned about dual loading belts, blueprints, trains (signals and station limits), and making 'somewhat' tileable/expandable productions. I didn't get into bots and i don't think i will. I only used Logistic bots to refill my inventory from malls and construction bots to remotely adjust my mining outposts.
Launched the rocket in my marathon mode, and decided to seek more! Before i thought to jump into the big mod packs, i tried to do a marathon mode Space Extension game to learn about scaling. Wow that was not for me. I got incredibly bored of making the same thing in larger scales so i quit.
So i looked for the next best thing in the list. Saw this Pyanodon pack and said, why not. Jumped straight in. The run:
I started my foray into PY a few months before PyAE came out, and was sort of glad that i did around this time, so i didn't have to re-learn everything. I didn't really get too deep into PYAL yet. I had a few restarts due to realizing a lot of my errors, and decided to stop restarting about the same time the Caravan patch came in. The Caravans were so much fun, i stopped having any thoughts of quitting the mod.
I started the game with the Py default settings (no biters and no pollution... my computer is old), and tried to keep it as pure as possible. The only mods i used other than the full PyAE pack were:
- Even distribution (to save my mouse and index finger during the burner phase... clicking all the coal was a pain in the ash)
- Vehicle Snap (There is a lot of driving in this game, i think that's what Py intended... for you to explore. I got tired of veering off and hitting my electric poles so i made 1 tile wide brick "highways" to aid my driving, and use the mod to snap in the cardinal directions)
- To-Do list (I actually didn't use this mod much... i felt like i needed a to-do list to write the to-do list, so i gave up trying to make use of this)
- Playtime+ (Time flies fast when you're having fun. And this lets you see that :))
Since the devs of this mod pack revel in pain and suffering, i thought by keeping it as lean as possible, it would fulfill that goal. I've never used any of the other recipe searching or planning or calculator mods, i'll explain it later on if i remember....
*Sidenote about RSO* The base game resource generation is a bit janky when it comes to PY. I had to roll the map a few times because i'd say 5/10 the starting resource patches would overlap and you'd have an impossibly hard start if there's not enough iron or copper. While RSO solves this, it messes up spawning of the farther resources (So you can get unlucky and have no Zinc spawn closeby, but also on the flip side, lucky and trivialize the early game power puzzle if you get a Geothermal water spot that spawn 3-5 patches in a spot, you can run a centrifuge without any powerplans if you get 3-4 spots of 3-5 patches of geothermal! [Py default will only spawn 1 as they are very powerful in early science])
Here's the full map that i've explored. To find far resources (Salt/sulfuGeothermal etc.) i set up a fishturbine+radar in the 4 cardinal directions, let them scan fully, then move them clockwise to the intercards, let them scan, and etc. it was quite effective.
Here's a closer look at the main area, with tags to identify general purpose of the spot Base showcase:
K enough babbling, onto the important stuff.
Start with the achievement - Py Sci 2 automated. I was going to get it under 190 but i forgot to ship my mechanical parts lol.
A better view of the area. Primers, Retrovirus&DNA Polymerase, Good alien Sample and Py Sci 2. Eventually i might export science packs through that pre-planned train station (i.e. move PY sci 2 to Chem sci). Borders with the Arqad area since i needed vrauk cocoons and Arqad Venom
Self sustained Arqad area. Makes its own ingredients for Vrauks and its food. I ship in Ralesia/Flora and Tin with Caravans, and have a train station bringing in red-hot coke and the Arqad combs
Further down south from Arqad, i have my Korlex milk (& Casein/Tuuphra), Zipir, Paragen, Flavanoid makers. I had a tiny amount of fish makers here and quickly realized that it was quickly overwhelmed... had to expand another fish factory. The line of biomass will eventually reach my intended biomass processing area. For now it is not backing up anything (got one of those 800 slot warehouses holding animal parts [see my log sci area later]. I will make that biomass processing area soon....
Further away, at another tin patch, i started a fish factory. Here is also where i tried to play with the Aerial Discharge base. They are quirky but sorta not that worth it. I use 3 to go between this tin outpost (steam to mine) and my glassworks outpost to make steam to process tar (next screen)
I realized that glass is getting used more and more and i needed to ship it (Mech parts, Biosamples, etc.) So eventually i had to create this little outpost where it receives overflow fuels (Petroleum and Gasoline) and also on site tar processing and burn all the fuel byproducts (Anthracene, aromatics, carbolic etc.) I ship out the pitch and creosote to help make red science bricks and sand casting and rails. The Aerial base here is the other end of the path from the Tin patch for fish. Steam is used to break down tar. I ship in syngas to power the oil burner for steam with an underflow.
Biosample and redhot coke to the Arqad/Py Sci 2 area from before. I never automated Biosample before this (can easily hand craft for the initial ones for synthesis of Alien Life). Caravans bring in Titanium/Steel and Lead. Train ships in glass. At this point i started REALLY voiding stuff since it was getting too complicated to hook them all up to be used. Yes i can bring this muddy sludge to my moss area but it was not worth it. I never void anything with fuel values though (Except trace hydrogen in remote spots) since you can easily hook it up to overflow to a oil burner -> Steam engine.
On to the best part (in my opinion). My Mechanical Parts 1 subfactory. I use 6 caravans here. My rationale is that these ingredients are used in small amounts, so 200 brains (200 round trips) of 1500+++ ingredients each trip should last me a life time. I ship in: Quartz Ore, Green circuits, Zinc plate, Rubber, Solder, and Tin plates. The Small parts and copper caravan outposts are exporter stations. I ship in glass from rails, make plastic from the wastewater from the Fish factory you saw earlier. AND....
I have a 'Janktown Express' train that brings in 4 obscure ingredients to the Mech parts factory. It brings in Titanium (just because its in the area) with the three ingredients requiring Antimony Oxide - Vitreloy (Brakes), Iron-Nex-Antimony (Shaft) and Lead-Antimony (Batteries).
This is the original 'Janktown Express'. My very first train that i used to take 4 components to the Logistic Science area from the Antimony area. To this day this train is still on its own rail line and not connected to the main rail grid. Sorta like those 100 year old historic trolley trains that run through a main City. Side areas:
Onto the other parts of my base, if you're still interested.
Here's the Logistic sci factory area that the Janktown express drops off the 4 components to. The Auog/vrauk slaughter houses are just south and ships all the chopped up parts into a giant warehouse where it supplies the animal sample maker. Circuitry sends overflow parts to the composter for biomass. Cottonguts and Moondrops are just north (not pictured) Here's my Niobium area that i rushed since i was DYING for the niobium underground pipes. (Not sure if you noticed how much F-in pipes i have in my base yet). It's coupled with the oil sands processing area where i turn oil sands into Syngas. I like this avenue because it let's me use up all the waste products in my base. (Most) stone, and all gravel and sand are shipped here to make Filtration media/Activated Carbon. Stone is crushed into Gravel and excess gravel crushed into sand. Activated carbon turns the flue gas that Oil Sand processing produces into Syngas, and Filtration media turns the Bitumen from Oil sands into Syngas as well. It does mean i cannot burn syngas for nothing (like just using it as fuel for glass/smelters) as it WILL eat up all the stone/gravel/sand. Also have to ship in Zinc and Carbon Dust (from my Coal power plant area) via caravans
Py Sci 1 maker with some landfill spaghetti before i was able to reliably mass produce landfill. I vent chlorine here since there's no good use for it (yet), and you will get A TON of it from NaOH.
Here's the bulk of my power generation. I have only 3 geothermal deposits so far but even they are not able to power one centrifuge. (3 geo = ~150MW, 1 centrifuge = 207MW). This power plant provides 118x6 MW, produces ash in big quantities (and ships them out). Coal processing lets me mass produce coke through Red Hot Coke, and tons of coal dust for the Filtration Media area from before. I ended up making trees here, i think it was because of Coke -> CO2. I originally wanted to make bricks here as well (ash -> rich clay) for when i really need to jack up red science but i never followed through... i think it was not as efficient use of ash as i thought. I ship out coke here for train fuel, since you will make a LOT of them. Also i ship out hot air here as well to the smelter area.
I really appreciate the tar deposits since there's a very simple tech that lets you make simple power setups. Tar + Vacuum = Coke + Heavy oil will let you run both Oil and Coal power plants to make power in a compact setup. the Tar deposits don't look like they will run out anytime soon either. I might make more of these tar deposits around the map later on. (I haven't touched crude oil yet, but will probably do so next). Nat gas (the last of the 3 bitumen seep resources) is required for Arqads.
and Finally, a wide shot of the (starter) centre of my base, based around the crashed ship. This shows the seaweed/moss/ralesia areas better as well as the Auog/Vrauk areas, and Cottongut/Moondrop areas up top. The middle right side area was a LOT more congested with early smelting but i eventually moved them out to another area. Yes there's a lot of slaked lime pooled up that i am waiting for the next research (salt products) to use them. (Hope you like the creative use of landfill to cross lakes). Final Word:
Some regrets that i had, and thought i'd share:
- I really liked Caravans since they had near instant transfer (Faster than any stacked inserters... 1500 items per swing!). But i think i had a misguided vision when i used them for delivering raw ores to my smelting lines. They will require more maintenance from me (putting brains/food in them) as usage goes up. I am not looking forward to squeezing trains in to replace those caravans. But caravans for low quantity items are still amazing for their simplicity.
- I probably automated Py sci 2 too early? I still have a lot of Log sci techs to go lol. Still have Phosphorous, MIBC, Molybdenum, guar and lubricant techs to research (and the TURD upgrades, if im interested in any). I remember i was completely done with Py1 sciences before i got my first Log sci pack at around 50 hours.
- I hopped into Quartz 2 WAY TOO EARLY. i totally underestimated the amount of fine sand you need. My god you need a lot. It really crippled my petri dish making capabilities (and then crippled my Py Sci 1). I made a ton of sand makers and then ended up with a billion muddy sludge, and i finally gave in to voiding it indiscriminately (Overflow valve -> sinkhole). This might be the reason why i still have so many log sci techs to research. I will likely hook up the glass outpost to dump molten glass to my py sci 1 area before long.
- Not taking the time to learn and figure out how to deal with creatures that use 10++ barrels of liquids and barreling machines. I had my arqad/korlex facilities back up so many times because the barreling machine was full and they could not take out any more empty barrels causing a jam. I think eventually i realized that those facilities do not start taking any ingredients in until it shits out all the empty barrels. Once i started paying attention to this fact, i was able to solve this headache.
Some words for the dev team:
- This modpack is amazing. I think not using any QOL mods really makes this modpack shine. I believe using calculators or recipe searchers, just basically turn this masterpiece into building Ikea furniture. I.e. you look up Py Sci 2, it spells out exactly what you need to make it and which buildings, and then you just follow it to the tee, place them one after the other, hook them up and voila, you (after a long time) have Py Sci 2.
- The buff to reinforced concrete, while INCREDIBLE (i can zip from one side of my base to the other, and don't have to rely on a car and avoid crashing into my own shit), made all the other cool tiles obsolete. Reinforced concrete is comparably much easier to make, and give the max speed (350%), while the other tiles (asphalt/iron oxide tile/etc.) give only 250% or matches the 350%. The higher tier cooler tiles should go up to even 500%. Also, i am not sure if the better tiles give faster driving speeds too? that would be nice too (if you don't rely on trains to get around).
- Caravans. Whoever made Caravans able to path through trees and pipes, made these guys so much fun to use. I remember before this minipatch, i had to design my buildings in ways that the caravan ogres don't get stuck. Now they almost always are able to find a way through unless you put overflow/underflow valves in tight pipe setups or they get stuck on another caravan lol.
- Solar and Tidal power seems a bit weak (at least at mk1). They are a pain to make and only give 5?MW (AND variable). Maybe if you bite the bullet and make a TON of them right when it makes sense to, it will pay off eventually, but so far the coal and oil powerplants overshadow the renewables. I assume when i get the processed biomass up and running it will be one more strike against Solar and Tidal.
Finally, i hope to continue this amazing modpack and maybe one day make that "PY COMPLETED" post like some of you have done so already. I really cannot believe how fast those guys who posted the PY COMPLETED posts have beaten this pack! PYAE only came out in december 2022? I cannot remember how many times i open the game, look at one of the recipes and immediately went to bed. I think it there were a good 3 or 4 times where i opened up the recipe for Good Alien Samples at night after coming home from work, take a look, and just shut the game down.
If you made it this far down the post, thanks for reading and hope you enjoyed this post as much as i enjoyed playing Py.

2023.06.10 22:45 RohanRL Help: low fps on RTX 4070.
I just built my first PC with an i5 13600k (14 cores, 5ghz) and an RTX 4070, and I feel like I am getting lower fps than I should be. In Minecraft Hypixel 1.8 I get around 500-1300fps, but my friend with an RTX 3060 gets 1k-2k fps. In Fortnite I get 500-700fps, but people with 3070 and 3070 ti get 900+fps. I have all latest drivers and I even use performance settings. I optimized NVIDIA Control Panel, but I can't seem to figure out why the fps is low. It shouldn't be a bottleneck as the CPU and GPU are a good pair and none of them are used significantly more than the other. Here are my full PC specs:
i5 13600k RTX 4070 OC 32GB (4x8) DDR4 3200Mhz 1tb Kingston SSD NVMe m.2 7000mb/s Corsair RM850x 850W PSU

2023.06.10 22:42 jtwlson2 I (32m) have never seen/met/talked to/ or interacted with my father in any way… and it still bothers me.
So, let me first preface this with I don’t want anyone to feel bad or sorry for me. I generally don’t talk about this because I don’t want people’s sympathy, I just want someone to listen… or no one to listed and for me to just vent lol.
My father had an affair with my mother and I was the outcome from it. Through out my mom’s pregnancy he would send her letters saying he was going to leave his wife and bring his other kids to start a life with her “for real” but those were all lies to comfort my mother. When push came to shove the day I was born my mother and my father had a contractual agreement that my mom would never force my father to pay child support and in return he would never be allowed to have custody of me. This was to ensure that his family would never find out about his bastard child, which to this day they still don’t know I am assuming. My mother never dated anyone else and to this day has remained single.
When I was a young child through grade school I was bullied pretty severely because I did not have a father. Kids are mean is all I can say lol 🤷♂️ but this caused me to have a less than ideal relationship with my mother because she refused to tell me anything about why my father wasn’t around until I was an adult. My mother kept all of the letters that her and my father sent back and forth while they were apart for the roughly three years that they were having an affair and I stumbled upon them when I was 15. From that time I completely resented my mother for her decision making, I hated myself for representing their lust for each other, I hated my father for obvious reasons. When I turned 18 I left home to go to college and the relationship continued to deteriorate with my mother until we completely stopped interacting and she moved across the country.
My early 20’s were nothing but struggles. Periods of couch surfing, consistently working 2-3 jobs just to try and make ends meet. I dropped out of college after two years because I couldn’t balance working 60-80 hours a week and making all of my classes. This really was my low point in life, and I was dealing with it using alcohol and elicit narcotics.
After a near death experience I completely changed my approach on life. My work ethic had never wavered, the day to day struggles to pay my bills and keep a roof over my head we’re real but I chose a route of forgiveness instead of resentment. My late 20’s were spent trying to rebuild relationships with my mother and my true friends. I managed to go back to and finish college utilizing some tuition reimbursement benefits for the company I was and still am working for today.
Fast forward to present day, I live a sober life with better but not perfect relationship with my mother. We don’t talk about my childhood or my father at all because there is still bad blood there that I can’t forgive so I try to forget. In reality, I still struggle with my existence. I still struggle to understand how my mother and father thought this was okay or was the best outcome. I am pretty confident I will always be bitter about this and have accepted that I will never understand. I choose to try and be a better person and to learn from the mistakes that I represent being alive.
There is no real reason for posting this other than it’s been on my mind a lot and I needed a place to compartmentalize my thoughts and just vent. 😊

2023.06.10 22:40 Altruistic_Rain9209 traveling
so i met someone and he wants me to travel 2 hours he said a couple times a month. what should i charge ? he says he doesn’t want to be intimate. He just text and said 500$ for a meet. should i just drop him ? i doubt he is going to pay for me texting him and i 500 sounds like a low ball to travel 2 hours

2023.06.10 22:40 Excellent_Shopping03 Vet threatening to stop prescribing Vetmedin
My 14-year-old Aussie mix is in remission from Lymphoma. He was found to have CHD by imaging last year and has been on 7.5mg/day since then. His onconologist prescribed it after his cardiac assessment. The vet has told me she will not renew his prescription unless he gets more imaging at the 1-year mark. The imaging is around $500 with anethesia, etc. Is this really necessary? I am correct in thinking that there is no way he would need to stop Vetmedin? What is the downside to keeping him on 7.5mg vs. upping it? Wouldn't it be worse for him to take nothing compared to a dose that may be too low? If he was 5 years old with no other health problems, I could see spending the money, but at his age and health history, it seems a bit much. Thank you!

2023.06.10 22:39 Mythdon- Do you consider your PC low, medium or high end? And are you happy with what you've got?
I consider my PC low-end:
- CPU: Intel Core i3-8100
- GPU: Nvidia GTX 1060 3GB
- Storage: WD Blue 500 GB SSD / WD Black 2TB HDD
- RAM: Crucial DDR4 2400Mz 2 x 8 GB (16GB)
- MBD: Asrock B365M Pro4
I've had my PC for a couple of years and it performs well for basic tasks and performs well/okayish for gaming depending the game. It's what I could afford at the time and while I've been happy for the most part, lately I've been wanting a lot more performance than what my current setup can do (especially since going from 60hz to 144hz).
I'm upgrading the GPU to a 6600 XT and down the road I'm going to upgrade the CPU or just get a new PC. I know the 6600 XT is going to be held back by my current CPU/MBD, but I think I'll be able to get by in the meantime until I do a complete PC overhaul. AMD CPU's/MBD's are pretty cheap nowadays, so if I go the new PC route, I'll probably go AMD next time around. And if/when I do get a new PC, I'll move the 6600 XT from my old PC to the new one.
