The term "shiny" originates from Pokémon. It is a term used to describe a pokémon that is a completely different color from all others in their species. We have taken that idea and expanded it to include objects, plants, food, and people! All color morphs are accepted providing they are atypical from the norm of that species, breed, or type.

2023.06.08 19:37 Fit-Caterpillar8330 Welcome to Bozeman: where your outdoor sport is your personality

Anybody else feel like the outdoor culture here (and in general) is becoming a toxic competition of 'who goes the hardest' and measuring self-worth based on Strava times and outdoorsy Instagram post likes? Perhaps it's part of broader social trends; but man I see a lot of people around here take themselves too seriously just b/c they run, ski, climb, bike, etc. a bit better than the average joe. It feels like a high school popularity contest here sometimes. Maybe I'm just ranting; but Bozeman didn't used to have this vibe.

Anyone knows where to find this but in other sizes?
So in Jonsau Shrine (to the west of Zora's Domain) you get a puzzle named Deep Force where you have to use these yellow objects to hit targets by sinking them and letting the rise on their own. Anyway I joined the yellow objects and added them to my autobuild fav list to test the materials outside. These things float in bot water and lava and won't burn nor do they conduct electricity. I think it would make a great base for many vehicles. The problem is that board is way too big for my needs. Does anyone know if there is another place were I could find the same material but in different sizes?

2023.06.08 19:36 cozybryant_ The Dray Convo

Genuinely curious: why is the general consensus that we’re nowhere near a Championship team without Draymond?
Let me start with: he’s a dawg who was absolutely invaluable to Championship runs and will go down as one of the all-time defensive players ever.
That being said, his body is declining. Still can be a great defender at times, but he’s not as athletic as he was in his prime and is later on rotations at times which leads to more fouls (Monk was living at the line after he beat his man in that Kings series). With him being undersized, that foot quickness is super important and you’re taking a big gamble betting on it holding up the next few years
He’s a negative player on offense at this point. Doesn’t even look at the rim 80% of the time; and the times he does look to score when he’s wide open, he can’t finish well when help rotates over to try and block
There’s no 1-for-1 replacement for him, I get that. But couldn’t adding some more size inside, and maybe a wing defender kinda cover up the hole he’d leave defensively? Offensively, you’re probably getting better looks since you aren’t playing 4v5 (sometimes 3v5 if he’s playing PF) which could take some pressure off your defense.
What do y’all think? Is 2023-2024 and beyond version of Draymond legit critical to a championship? Or is he more valuable in a team morale “don’t rock the boat” kinda way?

2023.06.08 19:36 Disastrous_Money8367 My [24M] girlfriend [23F] left me because I accidentally triggered her trauma/PTSD and says she can’t be in a relationship, but I still have feelings for her

Throwaway account, keeping everything anonymous.
My LDR girlfriend of 2.5 months left me due to her trauma I triggered accidentally. I was supposed to see her physically in August this year (brother’s wedding). We were nevermets. There is a mutual friend a little involved in this, I’m going to call him C (can be referred as him). It all started a week ago when everything was going well. We would text to each other every single day, and called whenever we could. Played video games, mostly to compensate for the distance. We “had” a sex life, as in we managed how we could through LDR.
Anyway, here is where the story starts. She asked if we could get a call going 7 days ago. I said it was fine, that I would make it. Then, because of her symptoms of chronic pain and her not feeling well, she decided to take a nap. I tell her that it is fine, to set an alarm at x or y time, and that if she slept through the entire night, I would understand. After 30 minutes that she said she was going to take a nap, she hasn’t opened my message yet. I assumed she fell asleep. Then, it was 30 minutes past the x time, so I decided to hit C (me and girlfriend met through this mutual friend), to rant and externalize my disappointment that she probably won’t be making it. I made it as a half-joke, as in I wasn’t trying to make her look bad. Then, C texted her because 33 minutes past our call time, she sent a TikTok to him. C then replied to my girlfriend asking why she wasn’t in a call with me. My girlfriend responded that she was on the toilet sending the TikTok and that she was going to call me a bit before going back to bed. All is good, I assumed.
This is where it all starts. Once C told me that my girlfriend was on the toilet and would call me later, I text her in a joking way about the fact that I know she’s on the toilet. She then proceeds to be mad at me for making her look bad to C and that I lied that she went past time because I gave her extra time. She doesn’t want to call anymore. I said I was sorry about the lie. Then, I tell her that “I won’t remind you to set an alarm anymore, and this (telling C that I’m disappointed) won’t happen again”. She replies “Ok”. 30 minutes pass, and then she asks, “isn’t that a little passive aggressive?” I then try to figure out what she means. I reaffirmed that I only meant that I don’t think it serves any purpose to remind her to set an alarm if she takes a nap before our scheduled call, as she already does by herself. It’s a simple task. I said I also wouldn’t worry about her not making it on time. She then proceeds to say that my reaction is toxic, that she feels triggered and doesn’t feel good (mentally and physically). She wants to leave (wasn’t clear at the time what she meant by “leave”). It felt toxic to her because “saying that you won’t remind me again just because I did one time is toxic”. I then apologized for being toxic without really knowing about it. That was the main event of what got her triggered, possibly digging into PTSD, which I didn’t want to ask right now because everything is tense but said that I would be open to let her communicate about that sort of thing later. To finish, she said she would be thinking about things. An hour passes, and she says that she really likes me, but that she can’t be with someone that triggers her trauma and nonchalantly dismisses it. I replied that I was sorry and that I would not repeat the same mistake that I did. She then finished up the conversation saying that she doesn’t know if she can be with me. I replied saying that I would leave her some time, and that she would get answers.
The next day, she says that she is sorry that her trauma ruined everything. I then take the conversation somewhere else (another platform) as I already started typing on that platform. I typed her a text, saying that it feels like I have been walking on eggshells (one or two incidents before that as well), especially with the fact that me saying that she could’ve been late to C wasn’t to make her look bad at all. I reiterated that I was sorry about triggering her, that I wasn’t going to make the same mistake, and that we should talk about her trauma and work on not making it trigger anymore. I said to her that if she really wants to end the relationship, that the ball is in her court, and that I wanted to get a clear picture if she wanted to keep the relationship going or not. She replied with “I know I want us to work but I can’t control my trauma responses”. We then exchanged other texts, and then she asked “Why would you want to try/keep going with me after this? My reaction was in most people’s eyes unproportionate”. I replied saying that I understood because there was a deeper reason, such as trauma, and that with time, we would have grown from this incident and that we still have a future together. She later said that she was “scared of not being able to always calm my trauma responses and that it will hurt you again”. I reassured her that she should let them come out, and that I know that with time, things would go back to normal.
A new day comes. She says, “I want to keep trying to build a good future with you”. She then proceeds to apologize about being sensitive the past few weeks, and that most her reactions have been too big because she wasn’t feeling that well. I appreciated her apology. We had a normal conversation, then she had to go do some homework, to which I said, all good, not going to disrupt you anymore, just glad that we’re moving forward together in our relationship. She said, “me too”.
Then, the day of the final event. She starts with “I know this is coming from out of nowhere for you, but I called the emergency psychology support line.”. My girlfriend said she was still affected by the trigger, and that it showed her that she can’t make the commitment to someone else. She then said that she cannot be in a relationship, that it breaks her heart, but she must choose her health over being with me. She also said that it wasn’t an easy choice for her because she was starting to fall in love with me, but she must choose her, to get better before anything else. “I only have enough in me to focus on school and fixing my mental health. Barely even that, I feel like I am spread too thin, and I can’t keep it up”. My general reply was that I understood, and that I appreciated that she put her needs first, instead of sacrificing her health, which “sucks to say”. I reminder her to keep seeing professionals to help her with what she is going through (she already did and does). I wished her good luck with everything, and that if she wanted to DM me, I would leave my usual ways of communication open. She replies that she wishes for me to find someone that is in the right place in her life, and ready to be with me. She said she’s sorry that she can’t be what I deserve right now. She also wants to leave me time and space, it’s best for her too, and that she is open to possibly be friends in the future. She told that I shouldn’t blame myself, saying that it was her trauma and her thinking she was ready for a relationship when she wasn’t. I replied with the fact that she shouldn’t be sorry, that she was enough and that she ticked what I wanted as a partner. The incident that happened a couple of days ago was a simple argument, an obstacle. I didn’t blame her, because it’s her trauma, so I “can’t blame anything at all”. As for staying friends, I said that I don’t know right now, because our future was building itself and we had plans to see each other, live together after a year, etc. We had more than that, but I would have to contextualize everything. Therefore, “I can’t guarantee if I’ll be able to just be friends after”. I wished her to take care, using her normal nickname, not the affectionate/romantic nickname I usually use for her. Her final reply since, was “I wish you the best of futures then [my nickname], take care of yourself”.
Overall, a breakup that was mostly because of me triggering her trauma. It was final. However, I did end up texting her after we’ve officialized our goodbyes, which isn’t ideal, but my emotional side decided otherwise. I told her that I wanted to make one last thing clear. That I’ll probably be looking for a partner somewhere else, whenever I’m going to heal from the breakup. However, if she did end up healing completely, that she feels ready for a relationship and wants us to be together, that she should ask me if I’m available at that moment. I affirmed that I wasn’t needy, that I understand that the both of us might or might not be together again. “The only reason I’m saying this is because we broke up due to things that are out of our control.” I then told her that she wasn’t obligated to answer this text if she didn’t want to. Hours pass, then my emotional self decides to crack again for one last time. I tell her that I still want her to still be in my life, that I just needed to process what happened. I said that I wish to do activities with her, but I will still have feelings for her. Then, this is where I said that I would be going no contact, but she shouldn’t be afraid to DM me if she feels the need. Told her she doesn’t need to reply, as I was just speaking my mind. She did just that, and we haven’t talked in 5 days now.
TL;DR : Girlfriend left me because I triggered past trauma saying something along the likes of “I won’t remind you to set (an alarm) anymore if you take a nap before our call” (she missed a call once) because, her words, “if I do something once you won’t remind me again” and “that is toxic”. We tried to stabilize, but she cracked psychologically and left me days later.
Obviously, the breakup is still new, but I still wish I was in a relationship with her, even if the relationship was relatively short. I could very much try to find another partner, but I still feel love for her and don’t really feel like dating anyone else. Anyhow, I have so many questions: - When should I break the no-contact (NC)? She finishes school in 4 weeks and will have a lot more time in her hands. - If she still does have feelings for me, and I keep the NC going too long, would she theoretically lose them? - Should I get her news once a week, and not talk about anything else? - Should I ask her straight away if she sees a relationship later, whenever she heals, or should I wait and just be her friend? I know I must have no expectations if I stay as friends. - Would it be wise to stay friends with her, but if she sees someone else, not sure I would be able to stay friends due to my feelings? - Should I tell her that I still want to see her in August?
I’m just looking for general guidance on what to do next. This is not a situation I’ve expected, and it’s leaving me into the unknown. Ideally, I want to see me and her back together, months or a year down the road, mostly because our breakup was due to her mental health, that she was/is already fixing with professionals.

The initial search through the offers is not going well.
“What about John Hopkins University?”
“Pre-approved for their internal loan program.”
“University of California Berkeley?”
“Pre-approved for their internal loan program.”
“It’s pronounced Dartmouth, and they’ll help talk to the bank to take out a loan.”
“Are there any universities in your entire tribe that don’t want us to take out huge expensive loans?!”
With a frustrated yell, Vilek throws herself on a chair. Thiva sighs and crosses more names off the list.
I was expecting this. The US and its wretched predatory profit-based educational system is a non-starter. I am not saddling the lambchops with about a million dollars of debt. Each.
At least I’m unlikely to have to pay my own student loans back, what with my debt holder being a smoking crater.
“Hey, this is promising!” Thiva’s ears perk up. “I told Johan we were looking into education on Earth and he said he’d see if he could talk to some people at Lund University. They sent us an offer, check it out!”
“Lund University. That’s in Sweden…” I’m reading the letter rapidly on Thiva’s pad and getting more excited the more I read. “They’ve got both therapist and engineering courses. And they’re willing to transfer your credits and give you both full-ride scholarships, as long as you’re willing to start the term early and ‘establish a baseline of knowledge’. And they’ll split your classes into morning and evening so you don’t have to run double-claw studies like we usually do… And they’ll even have the UN pay for housing and transportation to Earth? Jesus Christ, that’s… really damn good.”
Vilek perks up too, both of them watching me closely now with wagging tails. “So what’s the catch?”
I read it again. Slowly and carefully. And I find myself faced with a bastard of a choice. “Well for a start… this says nothing about me.”

Vilek and Thiva are running the math. It’s not looking good. “What if we sell your house? That should give us plenty of money, right?”
“Vansi still owns it, even if she’s never setting foot there again. How about a loan?”
“Nah, that was the first thing I checked. Banks aren’t issuing loans right now. Even taking out any money is hard. With the economy in freefall they don’t want to encourage a bank run.”
I chime in unhelpfully. “And I don’t think they want to give out a loan for a one-way ticket someplace they can’t make us pay it back.”
Thiva pouts with frustration. “That too. Ughh, this was such a good opportunity, too!”
“It is. So maybe you girls should go anyway.”
Thiva’s eye locks onto me right away. “No.”
“I’m just saying-”
“No, I’m not leaving you alone here! I can just finish school here, and…”
“…and leave Vilek alone on Earth instead? No, you two should stay together. I can house-sit Thiva’s place and try to find a job. Maybe get enough money for you girls to head back during summer and winter breaks.”
“I told you it’s not my place, it’s Vansi’s.”
“And she’s welcome to it as soon as she gets out of jail.”
Vilek flicks her tail-tip with uncertainty, ears moving thoughtfully. “…Are you sure this is our best bet?”
“I’m pretty sure it is. And we don’t have a lot of time to look for alternatives. Says here you guys will be working with a pair of tutors to make sure your knowledge base is up to spec, and that’d start in just a few days.”
They’re my friends, and they have an amazing opportunity here. I have to be strong. It’s what’s best for them. It’s just a year or two.
It’s not like I’ve barely survived the last month and a half on this wretched rock.

Date [standardized human time]: December 15th, 2136

Today’s physical therapy session is in my room. If I were hoping that’d lead to less pain, I would’ve been wrong. “C’mon, keep pulling your leg back! That’s the way!”
My arch-nemesis is currently leaning on my leg and levering it back toward my torso with her entire weight, and is encouraging me to pull back with both arms too. I’m pulling like a beast, teeth gritted so hard I think they might crack. “don’t… fucking… say it…”
My vision is blacked out from the sheer goddamn agony, while Chasa cheerfully encourages me. “Gold star, Martin! Do it for the gold star!”
But it’s the only way I’ll be able to restore a normal range of motion without lopping my limbs off and going for prosthetics. “mother… fucking… hate you…”
Which I can’t afford. And besides, upper prosthetics are nowhere near as advanced as people think. “That’s the way! Alright you can let go now, you did an amazing job!”
I collapse back immediately and straighten my leg. Opening my eyes I can see white stars dancing in my vision. Chasa pads up the bed and licks her paw before stroking it through my hair, giving me another cowlick. “Good boy, I’m so proud of you!”
I am defeated. “…thanks.”
“Hey, uh, is this a bad time?”
I blink at the familiar voice and turn my head. Mosun’s standing there with a confident expression, and Jarkim is right beside him. They both look good, far better than me at least. Jarkim’s got bandages on his leg and Mosun’s got a clavicle brace, but they’re both mobile.
Chasa gingerly climbs down from the bed and moves over to my file. “Nope! We were just done for the paw, except I was gonna give Martin his gold star~! He loves the gold stars!”
“…I am going to eat you.”
Jarkim squawks with alarm at my threat to my Zurulian nemesis. She is undeterred and cheerfully says “No you’re not.”
Jarkim speaks up. “Aren’t you… concerned, about him using that sort of language?”
Chasa stretches idly before placing the shiny sticker on my file. I’ve still got one for every session. “Nah, he doesn’t mean it. Threats and cursing are proven to help human pain responses, that’s all! He’s a big softy; I’ve got him eating out of my paw.”
I try to sound disagreeing but it comes out as a rather pathetic whine. “…I’m an apex predator…”

“So you were both discharged?”
Mosun flicks his ear affirmative. “I was in for a paw longer than Jarkim was, but we’re out and healing now. It’ll be another thirty-ish paws before my collarbone’s fully fixed up, but I can return to daily life.”
That’s an insanely short time to recover from a shattered collarbone, but I suppose the medi-teddies are the leading health care providers in the galaxy for a reason.
I nod. “Well, that’s good. The rest of the posse doing okay?”
Jarkim moves a wing in the positive. “Hanya got in contact with that human you mentioned, doctor Eriksson. She seems positive about it. Slavik’s back on their farm.”
I nod. “So what are you guys gonna do? I, uhh, I don’t know what you do for work, Mosun, but I think Jarkim’s out of a job.”
Mosun grins, before getting a thoughtful look and tapping his leg a few times on the floor. “I drive around stocking vending machines, so nothing that matters. But I’ve been teaching Hanya a little, like she asked. And I think… I think I’d rather like to start a Dance school. So I’ll be saving up a bit and getting it set up while I heal.”
It’s clear he doesn’t mean ballet, but I make sure to censor myself around Chasa just in case her cheerful disposition toward humans doesn’t carry on to ‘primitives’. “I think that’s a fantastic idea. I know there are a ton of humans who’d be lining up for a chance to learn your culture’s Dances. Yotul too, obviously. And Hanya’s shown there’s interest from other sapients too…”
Jarkim clacks his beak twice before speaking. “I’ll go work on Slavik’s farm for a while to pay them back, and to stay airborne. But after that… I want to help people. And I’ve still got contacts. So I was thinking of setting up a sort of troubleshooting agency. People could come to me with problems, and I’d try to help them out.”
I laugh, but quickly reconsider as my body protests the action. It’s the most stereotypical ex-cop thing he could do! “You’re gonna become a freaking private eye?!”
Jarkim looks me dead-on and deadpan. “…What’s a private eye?”

Date [standardized human time]: December 19th, 2136

My fingers run through Vilek and Thivas’ fur slowly. I have been discharged from the hospital, but I’m still going to be in for physical therapy every other paw for the foreseeable future. Right now, though, I am relaxed. “How long, now?”
Vilek answers. “Half a claw.”
That’s not a lot of time, but I am determined to not ruin it with a foul mood. “Mm… You girls all packed?”
“There’s not a lot to pack. We’re getting most everything once we’re there.”
Thiva’s currently quietly crying onto my shirt. “I’ll miss you.”
“I’ll miss you too, lambchop. But I’ll feel better with you two together, and doctor Eriksson is in Lund, so you can have in-person sessions.”
“And you’re sure you can’t come with?”
I shake my head. “Unless you got any new ideas. Besides, moving between human nations is a pain in the ass. I can’t get in as a refugee. Sweden’s been strict about refugees since before the Satellite War: I set foot on Venlil Prime first and VP’s been willing to house me, so that means according to Sweden and most other nations that I have to stay here until I can go back to the US.” Fucking ‘first safe harbor’ laws. “And since I’m a citizen of the United States of America I can’t move to Sweden on my own anyway. At least not without having a job or family or something there.”
Thiva looks up at me and says softly “…We’re family, right?”
Oh, wow, okay. I bite my lip for a second to keep from crying. It mostly works. “Yeah, of-of course we are. But that’s not how they see it. Don’t worry, we’ll try to figure something out. We just need to be patient.”
She gives a soft and sad sigh. I scratch behind her ears and look over at Vilek.

Vilek gives a soft beep and leans her head against my other hand. “Do you know a lot about the place?”
I shake my head. “Almost nothing. Lund’s a city in Sweden, and Lund University is around five hundred years old. Before going to Venlil Prime I had never left the US, which is almost as far from Sweden as you can go before you start getting closer again. But it was practically untouched by the extermination fleet, and the people are famous for being friendly.”
Even that much I had to search online to learn. The stereotype that Americans can’t tell Swedes from Swiss might not be true but it’s apparently not as far off as I thought.
“You’ll be studying one claw, then a break claw, then another claw of study, then you have three claws off. These six-claw periods are a day. You’ll study five days, then have two days to yourselves.”
Vilek whistles a soft laugh. “So there’s a lot of time to recover.”
“Remember, humans tend to sleep for eight hour stretches. So most people sleep eight hours, study or work eight hours, and have the remaining eight for transportation and personal stuff.”
“Hopefully that’s not going to be a problem…”
“I managed to adjust to VP’s time, I’m sure you’ll manage Earth’s. Worst case scenario, there’s coffee. Every student lives on coffee. And there’s soda, and potato chips, and curry. There are so many tasty things that you girls will adore trying on Earth.”
Thiva wags her tail softly, looking up at me. “You make us sound like gluttons.”
“No, I’m saying I miss those things because Venlil food sucks.”
Both girls play-push me and bleat with protest, making me laugh.
Mary mother of God I am going to miss them.
“Speaking of that, it smells like the food’s done.”
“Huh? I don’t smell anything?” Thiva gives me her most deadpan expression of confusion, and I roll my eyes at her and gently pinch the tip of her ear to pay back her jest. That elicits an adorable little squeak, and I smile while I get up and grab my crutch. I won’t be able to walk unaided for a long time, perhaps ever. I’m okay with that. I kinda want to have a walking stick anyway. A classy wooden one, like Tom’s.
Maybe I can be the first human with a walking stick made from Venlil wood?

I put out the spread. Cooking has been an extra pain in the ass with my injuries, but I’ll be damned if that’s going to stop me.
I present the plated-up meal on the table by the couch with a small flourish. “Here we go, girls. This is the meal I was going to make for you before things got… hectic. Tomato focaccia and pasta alla norma. And to drink, wine. That’s a fermented drink from the juice of grape berries. This particular wine is a variety called Nerello Mascalese, from my family’s ancestral home of Sicily.”
Vilek wags her tail as she leans forward. “This focaccia looks sort of like Strayu, but with a bunch of stuff on top?”
“It’s a sort of bread, almost all human cultures have some variation on bread. I’ve topped it with cherry tomato fruits, rosemary herbs, and kosher salt.”
The lambchops look at it with excitement, and Thiva’s the first to tear off a bit and place it on her outstretched tongue. She rolls it into her mouth and starts chewing, and her ears perk up and her tail wags at once. Her eyes half-close and she looks like she’s melting. “Ohhhh Protector… it’s so sweet, and salty, and juicy, and-and-and-”
Vilek excitedly tears off a piece for herself and plops it into her mouth. I’m rewarded for my hard work with an adorable squeal of joy from her, and she takes a second piece and shovels it into her mouth too. Only after swallowing does she focus an eye on me. “If I didn’t already want to mate with you beforehand, this ‘focaccia’ would’ve sealed the deal!”
I find myself blushing rather hard, and simply take a small bit of the bread for myself wordlessly. Thiva and Vilek both whistle a laugh.

After having thoroughly sampled the bread Thiva pokes at the pasta dish with a claw. “So what’s this other stuff? It looks utterly wild!”
I smile at the two, letting my explanation cool my jets a bit. “Pasta is made by combining a ground wheat powder with water, and then shaping the resulting dough and boiling it. Here I’ve combined it with a sauce made with tomato fruit and herbs, as well as a spongy and nutritious plant called eggplant. You guys don’t seem to mind bitter plants, so I figured it might be a good idea. Finally, it’s got a vegan ricotta made with almond nuts, lemon juice, and garlic powder… and basil, a wonderfully fresh leafy herb. This is a classic meal from Sicily, modified the tiniest bit for my herbivorous lambchops.”
The two take a pair of spoons and scoop up some of the mixture, making sure to get a bit of everything. They look at each other and, on an unspoken signal, put the food in their mouths.
They squeal and gasp. Vilek even squirms happily in her seat, while Thiva just wags her tail rapidly and moves her ears in slow little circle motions as she chews. Vilek’s the first to speak up. “…this is absolutely crazy, there are so many flavors… all at once! But I can taste each one…”
I pour some of the wine into their glasses, wincing a bit at having to awkwardly brace the heavy bottle in both hands.
I know the Venlil can hold their alcohol well enough to make the Irish blush, so I’m not concerned about that part. Having tried Venlil drink once, I am mostly curious as to if the lambchops will be able to appreciate the complexity of something that doesn’t taste like everclear and paint thinners.
As they take small sips, I needn’t have worried. Thiva in particular bleeps with joy and perks her ears. “Oohh… that’s rich! There’s sweetness, and acidity, and a sort of dried herb taste underneath it all?”
Vilek adds her own opinion, but is slower with it. “There’s a sort of earthiness… and I can taste it a little differently just by holding my mouth near the glass… that’s wild. It goes really, really well with the food too…!”
I laugh quietly. “Heh… I’m glad you girls enjoy it. Just make sure to leave some room for dessert. There will be chocolate cake.”
Thiva tilts her head. “You humans have meals for after your meals?”
“Only for special occasions. Don’t worry, you’ll love it.”

“It looks like dirt.”
“Wet dirt.”
I wait patiently with a small smile. They load their spoons with some of the moist, spongy chocolate cake and the rich frosting that I’ve so lovingly slaved over. And into their mouths it goes. I wait for the reaction.
It does not disappoint.
They immediately start devouring their dessert, while I grin. “Well girls, If you don’t want the ‘dirt’ I’ll be glad to take it off your paws.”
They quickly protest. “Don’t you dare!” “Yeah, we’re keeping the whole thing! This stuff is better than mating!” “How would you know? You’ve never even done it!” “Yeah okay, but am I wrong?” “…I didn’t say that!”
Laughter and whistling fills the room. As far as last meals together goes, this one is going about as well as I could’ve hoped.

We’re standing outside. We’re beside the politely impatient cab driver that’ll take the girls the first leg of their journey to the space port and on to Earth. Thiva’s crying again and clinging to me. It hurts, but I grin and bear it.
Vilek smiles, the human expression looking a bit foreign on her face. “…You promise you’ll be okay? I… I need to hear you say it.”
Thiva flicks her ear and tail. “Yeah. W-We can still change our minds, if… If you need us.”
I have no goddamn idea what I am going to do after you girls step into that cab.
I smile at my beloved lambchops, give them a warm hug, a pair of quick kisses on their cheeks.
And I lie to their faces.
“Don’t worry about me, I’ll be fine without you.”
This is the penultimate chapter of this story. Thank you for reading so far!

2023.06.08 19:34 Long8D How can I make an HTML page accessible with buttons for my worker threads?

Right now I have some code I wrote in puppeteer and I'm using express too. It accesses various chrome profiles and then it does some actions. To start these worker threads I run index.js then go into my browser and type in which starts a worker thread on that specific chrome profile. I have to do this for each chrome profile that I have.
Now I would like to be able to access in my browser and then be able to see my profile names with buttons next to them which will open and close the worker thread when clicked. How can I do this? I've tried many things and I think it would be a waste of them posting them here because I couldn't get anything to work.
Here is what I have that currently works:
let { workerData, parentPort } = require("worker_threads"); const puppeteer = require("puppeteer"); const fs = require("fs"); (async () => { const browser = await puppeteer.launch({ headless: false, executablePath: "C:/Program Files/Google/Chrome/Application/chrome.exe", ignoreDefaultArgs: true, args: [ `--remote-debugging-port=${workerData.remoteDebuggingPort}`, "--user-data-dir=D:/chrome-profiles/" + workerData.profile, "--no-first-run", "--no-default-browser-check", `--window-size=1920,1080`, ], defaultViewport: null, timeout: 60000, slowMo: 50, }); await new Promise((r) => setTimeout(r, 2000)); const pages = await browser.pages(); const page = pages[0]; await page.goto("https://www.google.com/"); 

const { Worker } = require("worker_threads"); const app = require("express")(); const http = require("http").createServer(app); let portCounter = 9444; app.get("/api/chrome", (request, response) => { const profile = request.query.profile; worker(profile, { remoteDebuggingPort: portCounter++, }); return response.status(200).send("Booting the browser"); }); function worker(profile, data = {}) { const startWorker = () => { const worker = new Worker("./worker.js", { workerData: { ...data, profile: profile, }, }); worker.profile = profile; worker.on("message", (message) => { console.log(`Message back from worker: ${message}`); }); worker.on("error", (error) => { console.log(error); }); worker.on("exit", (code) => { console.log(`Worker exited - ${code} ++ ${worker.profile}`); startWorker(); }); return worker; }; return startWorker(); } http.listen(8000, () => { console.log("HTTP server started on"); });

2023.06.08 19:34 ghann $WOOD calls - Lumber shortage incoming

$WOOD calls - Lumber shortage incoming
Canada could exceed the largest total amount of burned area recorded in this country in a single year. Natural Resources Canada released updated data and forecasts Monday showing that, as of June 4, there had been 2,214 wildfires across Canada this year, and about 3.3 million hectares burned. The 10-year average over the same timeframe is 1,624 fires and 254,429 hectares burned.
The department said it is unusual to have blazes across most of the country this early in the wildfire season, and that Canada could pass the annual record for burned area if the current rate of fire activity continues.
British Columbia, Quebec and Alberta produced 81% of Canada's softwood lumber in 2020. Lots of fires mean not only is inventory damaged, but timber operations are hampered due to inability to get to affected areas, but also temporary emergency orders about having chainsaws, jerry cans etc in tinder dry areas.
During the pandemic, lumber futures mooned. Lumber producers and resellers made huge money off of those shortages. As lumber prices crashed, their profits and stocks sank with it. The lumber bros must be dying for an excuse to pump lumber prices back up to the moon during the busy summer building season.
$WOOD is the closest ETF the loosely tracks Lumber Futures. Call volume and IV are still low for now with everyone obsessed with AI. 8/18 79c are $0.25/ea and could return 2300% if $WOOD re-tests it's 52w high.
Positions: 50x 8/18 76c, 100x 8/18 80c
