2023.06.02 21:32 montagne__verte A College Student's Guide to Minimalism

Hi Minimalists,
After the summer I'll be headed into my junior year of an American University. I've been a minimalist since my freshman or sophomore year of high school so I've been at this for a while. In my years of college so far I've lived in a dorm, an apartment, and at home on a gap semester so I can confidently give others advice. Whether you're starting out in minimalism or wanting to deepen your practice, this is for you. College is a great time to start minimalism because if you're like me, you're moving around a lot.
My University is a 3 hour drive from my house so luckily I was able to use a car to move in and out but I didn't have a car to use which turned out to help my minimalism as it resulted in smaller shopping trips. If I were flying in, it would be a different story and I would have to pack later but I had some room.

  1. *Seasonal clothing:* My college town has all four seasons so layering was my friend. Summers and spring I wore pants and shorts with a tank top. I have one pair of denim shorts and pants because really, who needs more? They last many wears and a basic blue or black denim can go with anything. In the fall and winter, I layered the exact same outfits with a jacket. I have a few different jackets which I'm trying to pair down. I have a huge snow jacket which I hate having because it takes up so much space. I was about to get rid of it but we had the craziest winter this past January and February so I'm glad I kept it. Sometimes you don't want to keep things but it will serve its purpose. If it doesn't, get rid of it. When I get clothes, I like to get new clothes, I like for them to have multiple purposes but snow jackets are very specific, however, it's better to be comfortable. Especially if you're walking everywhere which I was doing.
  2. *Underwear:* While I was at my apartment this past spring semester, I realized I never used all my underwear and socks in a week (I do laundry once a week). Since I've moved home for the summer, I put some of each away in a box and used what I had. If I needed more I'd grab some but I think I've figured out the perfect number which is different for everyone. I can't really comment on bras even tho I am a girl but I don't really wear them or if I do, it's a yoga bra and I'll wear it as my shirt.
  3. *Shoes:* If you live somewhere snowy and have a pair of hiking shoes that are water-resistant, they work in snow. I was told they wouldn't work so I bought a pair of Timberlands and barely wore them and wasted $150 on them. Recently, I bought a pair of Chacos chelsea boots. I got the black color so I could wear them to work and they'd look more professional. However, black absorbs heat so my feet always get warm. Once these have run their time I'll get a brown color. I have one pair of tennis shoes that I only wear over summer when I work at summer camps. I'm not a fan of tennis shoes but if you go to the gym or run then have one pair and only get another once they are worn out. I have two pairs of hiking sandals which I can also wear with socks in the chillier weather but I'd like to pair them down to one.
  4. *"Maybes":* You know these clothes, the ones you just cannot seem to donate but don't know why you're keeping onto them (or you do). What I've found is I'll get a bag and put my maybes in those and put them out of sight for a few weeks. If I don't miss them, I have my answer.
  5. *"Maybes" pt. 2:* If you move home during the summers and/or winters, I highly suggest keeping some maybes at home. When you come back, you'll most likely be able to donate it all.
  6. *Hangers:* Only bring with you how many hangers you currently need plus maybe one or two more if you want to be nice to yourself. Once you run out, you cannot buy any more clothes.
  7. *1 in 2 out:* This has been my philosophy with clothes for quite some time now because clothes are the biggest struggle of mine when it comes to minimalism. Now, whenever I buy an item of clothing, it has to be able to replace *at least* two items I already have or be something I need but don't have yet (like work clothes).

  1. *Linen:* You only need one pair of sheets, I promise.
  2. *Desk:* I work my best when my desk if clean so all I keep on there is a mason jar with a few pens, my laptop, and a fake plant (I don't like to move around a bunch with real plants and not every place I'm in has a window with a lot of sunlight). I take all my notes digitally so I don't have to worry about physical clutter. I do that with books/textbooks as well. Unless I *need* to get a physical copy, I always purchase it as an online book.

  1. *Towels:* One towel is all you need, I promise.
  2. *Toiletries:* Scaling down your bathroom routine is a must. I haven't worn makeup since I've become a minimalist and it works for me and I enjoy it but if makeup is a must for you, really think about each step and if you can cut out any. Also, don't keep so many refills on hand, just go buy another when you need it, it really helps with clutter. A few things I have refills on hand. Like my deodorant comes in packs of two and my razor comes with multiple head replacements.
  3. *Shower:* I've decided I'm going to get rid of my bath mat next semester. Why do I need one if I can just dry off in the tub/shower? Really think about what you *actually* need.
  4. *Toothbrush:* This is something I've just decided to do. I have an electric toothbrush that I've used for years but I'm going to move back to a good old fashioned manual one. The replaceable toothbrush heads are like $15 a piece! Plus, it's bulkier and I always have to keep a normal one on hand when I take a trip.

My roommate and I split the cupboards and drawers but I didn't use half of mine!
  1. *Pots & pans:* Get a good cast iron pan and pot and you'll never need anything else (just be sure you season them right). Maybe get another saucepan if your recipes are more complex but scale down on the complex recipes! (See my next point)
  2. *Recipes:* I love to cook but sometimes the recipe has 10 spices, 8 different veggies, and 10 different topping choices. I'm vegan so that makes some things easier but not much. You can edit recipes. It may take some trial and error but spice it to your liking. You're not going to taste a 1/4 tsp of cumin, I promise. Also, I don't like bell peppers so if a recipe has that, I get rid of it. Finding simpler recipes has really helped my kitchen stay minimal.
  3. *Food:* This is something I'm still trying to work on. I didn't cook much in my dorm but this past semester I didn't have a meal plan and I had a kitchen. I was spending anywhere from $200-400 a month on groceries and unfortunately I left a lot of food to go to waste. MAKE A MEAL PLAN. I love notion and made a recipe book with my favorite recipes. This has helped immensely with food waste. Also, don't get that one super specific thing for one recipe that you're only going to make once. Either skip the recipe or find a substitute. I'll use this example which doesn't apply to me but it's a good example. I love tahini and use it in a lot of things. I can go through a jar of it in 2 months. Others however may never use it but one recipe calls for it. Use another nut butter instead or skip the recipe. Or find more to use it in instead of letting it sit in your fridge and just throwing it out when you move.
  4. *Plates, utensils, etc.:* Do you really need more than 2 plates/bowls/cups? If you have guests, get compostable reusable plates or BYOP. I had 3 of everything but rarely used the 3rd so when I go back, I'm only taking 2 of everything. I wash my dishes as soon as I'm done (or as I go) so it hasn't been a problem for me. Same goes with knives. Do you really need a whole knife block? Just get 1 or 2 quality knives and you'll never need another again.
  5. *Appliances:* Be careful when it comes to appliances because they take up a lot of space when moving. If you drink coffee a lot, get coffee appliances. For me, I love tea so I have a kettle to boil water. I recently got a high speed blender to use as a blender and a food processor and I've loved it. I also recently got an air fryer as a gift. I haven't used it yet but I'm also scared to start haha. I just need to do it once and then I'll be familiar with it. However, if I can use that to replace having to heat up the oven each time, I'll take it. Don't get a toaster oven. You can heat up your bread on a pan on the stove just perfectly and it saves space.
  6. *Random shit:* We all love those fancy shaped bottles and the cool fridge organizers. I had a fancy bottle last semester. Didn't use it once so it is not coming back with me next semester. Those clear plastic fridge organizers are expensiveeee. Do you really need them? Minimalism isn't about having the best organization, it's about being mindful with your stuff. Maybe you find value in those organizers, go for it! But for me personally, they wouldn't add any value to me as I can already organize my fridge pretty well. However, I just bought one of those rotating organizers because the corner of one of my cabinets was getting crowded with spices and oils.

  1. Find a good multi-purpose cleaner and it will be a lifesaver!
  2. Dryer balls are your best friend.
  3. Target's brand Ever Spring has a concentrated laundry detergent and the bottle takes up almost no room and one squirt gets the job done. It's been a lifesaver.
  4. Just get a broom. A vacuum takes up a lot of space and is heavy.

**Living Room**
  1. Ngl, I never touched my living room once. I spent no time there. My roommate had some things but if you're not going to hang out there much, don't keep anything in there.

Hope I covered most things and it wasn't too confusing. If you have any other questions, I'd love to answer. If you want links to anything I mentioned please let me know!

2023.06.02 21:32 Baconbits7676 Pathology Report LCIS - need help understanding

Would anyone be able to help me understand what my pathology report means? Do I have LCIS or Pleomorphic LCIS, or something else? I'm clueless and my doctor is out of the office til Monday. My mammogram findings were fine pleomorphic calcifications.
I would appreciate any help/experience with this.
- Breast tissue with fibrocystic change, small intraductal papilloma, and atypical lobular proliferation with pagetoid extension into terminal ducts. See comment.
- Microcalcifications are present.
The breast biopsy contains fragments of intraductal papilloma as well as an atypical proliferation of lobular epithelial cells with pagetoid extension into terminal ducts. Although relatively scant lobules are present in this sample, the extent and pattern of lobular cells within these ducts is highly suggestive of LCIS in unsampled breast tissue.
The specimen received in formalin labeled and designated "right breast" consists of a 2.6 x 2.2 x 0.5 cm aggregate of tan-yellow lobulated pieces of fibroadipose tissue. The specimen is entirely submitted in (A1-A2).
The specimen is fixed in formalin for between 6 and 72 hours and has a cold ischemic time of less than 1 hour.
The examined sections demonstrate cores of breast tissue with fibrocystic change and a small fragment of intraductal papilloma with mild usual-type epithelial hyperplasia. One focal area demonstrates an irregular architecture. Immunohistochemistry is performed to further evaluate this focus.
Calponin: Myoepithelial cells intact in the area of interest
P63: Myoepithelial cells intact
CK5/6: Heterogeneous staining
ER: Negative in the area of interest
P120: Area of interest demonstrates cytoplasmic and membranous staining pattern
E-cadherin: Cells of interest are negative
Focal microcalcifications are present.
Mammographic calcification found on diagnostic imaging of breast.

2023.06.02 21:31 Dropped-Croissant Considering Conversion Therapy

I (21f) posted on this subreddit a bit back asking about whether my homosexual and transgender feelings are grave sin even if I fight them. And I was very happy to be assured that it wasn't, I am still a bit concerned because while I do fight it, I still feel it. And it takes me a bit to realize it, and only after I realize do I fight. It's like I'm fighting a foe I cannot see, only hear. It embarrasses me to know that God knows my sinning heart like this. It makes me feel like a fake sometimes, that I'm disgracing Jesus to call myself a Christian.
Conversion therapy.
I'm aware conversion therapy doesn't work for most people, but as far as I'm aware, most people are also forced into it. So, if I were to go by my own will, I really do believe it could help me.
Recently I found out that the lead singer of a Christian rock group I've enjoyed a few songs of had gone through very similar struggle as me, struggling with homosexuality too, and the final blow she gave to her unholy sexuality was rigorous conversion therapy. She has said she is very happy now, and even has a husband! Her name is Lacey Sturm and she sings for Flyleaf for anybody who hasn't heard and is interested.
It won't be easy for me to find it though, simply because I live with my parents still and while my parents say they're Christians, they've picked and chose what words of the Bible and the Church they believe and are pro-LGBTQ+.
I'd ask one of my pastors, but I'm afraid I may ruin my pastor's views of my family. So once again, I'm deciding to keep it between me, God, and strangers on the internet.
Is there anybody who could give me some pointers (besides giving in to sin please!)? Especially somebody who relates and shares the struggle.

2023.06.02 21:30 Accomplished-Farm752 The Chocolate Dancer

Once upon a time, there was a man named Snake Hips who loved chocolate more than anything else in the world. He would eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and he would even snack on it in between meals. He loved the way it tasted, the way it smelled, and the way it made him feel.
One day, Snake Hips was walking down the street when he saw a sign for a chocolate factory. He had never been to a chocolate factory before, so he decided to go inside. He was amazed by what he saw. There were giant vats of chocolate, rows and rows of chocolate bars, and even a chocolate fountain!
Snake Hips was so excited that he started to dance. He danced around the factory, twirling and spinning and shaking his hips. The other workers were amazed by his dancing, and they started to call him "Snake Hips."
Snake Hips danced all day long, and by the end of the day, he was exhausted. But he was also very happy. He had found his true calling in life. He was a chocolate dancer!
Snake Hips went on to become a famous chocolate dancer. He traveled all over the world, performing in front of sold-out crowds. He even won a few awards for his dancing.
But Snake Hips never forgot his love for chocolate. He always made sure to have a piece of chocolate before he went on stage. He said that it helped him to relax and focus.
Snake Hips lived a long and happy life. He died at the age of 90, surrounded by his loving family and friends. And to this day, people still talk about the amazing chocolate dancer who could shake his hips like no one else.
The End.

Get the course here: [Download Course] Dan Koe – Digital Economics Masters Degree (
Our website:

Phase 0) Digital Economics 101

The Digital Economics 101 module will open 1 week prior to the cohort start date.This is an onboarding module that will get you up to speed so we can get straight into the material.This will be required to finish before the start date.
  • Gain a deep understanding of all of the pieces in the digital economy.
  • Learn about the future of media and code — the front-end and backend of the internet — so you can focus your efforts.
  • Understand digital leverage, distribution, no-code tools, and digital assets so you can take part in the mental & financial wealth transfer.

Phase 1) Creating A Meaningful Niche

Every day I hear people going on and on about trying to find their niche.I also hear people talking about how they don’t know how to combine what they love talking about with what will sell.You already have the answer. You just don’t have the clarity.
  • Develop a long-term strategy to create your own niche — meaning you don’t have to worry about your “competition” playing status games.
  • Discover your life’s work, curiosities, and obsessions. I see too many people that are uncertain about this for years.
  • Cultivate and turn your vision, goals, and values into a brand that attracts an audience you love interacting with (and that will buy from you, and only you).

Phase 2) Content Strategy

There is one thing that separates those who make it in the digital economy and those who don’t.It’s the quality, articulation, and perceived originality of their content.The content you post has to make sense to the people you attract.Everyone has a different voice and tone that they resonate with. That they are congruent with and trust.It has to change their thought patterns or behavior — that’s what makes you memorable.That’s what separates you from the sea of people posting surface-level copy-cat style posts.Example and putting my money where my mouth is:
  • Become an expert-level speaker or writer on the topics you care about.
  • Never run out of content ideas for your posts or promotions (without using content templates — that’s how you stay a commodity).
  • Create posts, blogs, tweets, images, and videos that resonate with other’s on a deep level. People will actually ask you how you got so good at what you do.
  • Separate yourself from the ocean of B-tier creators that struggle to sell their products, services, andhave their ideas stick in the head of their audience.
  • Implement our Epistemic Research Method — which is just a fancy way of saying scientific research method… but it’s for researching your mind to craft brilliant content and product ideas.

Phase 3) Crafting Your Offer

Most people are sitting on a goldmine of skills, experience, and knowledge (that they can use to help people 1-2 steps behind them).That is what people pay for.Considering 95% of the market are beginners… if you are good at something, you can help them get to your level (no matter how “basic” you think the information is).Do you not watch basic content all day anyway? People don’t want new information, they want to be reminded of what works.
  • Use our Minimum Viable Offer strategy to start monetizing immediately (and have something to improve over time, rather than procrastinating until it’s perfect).
  • Have a strategy for reducing the time you spend working over time (as you build leverage and improve your offer).
  • Know how to create your own customers from the audience you are building, instead of “finding” the right customer for your offer.
  • Take the guesswork out of building coaching, consulting, or digital product offers.

Phase 4) Marketing Strategy

You aren’t making money because you aren’t promoting yourself or your offer.That is literally the only way to make money. Have something desirable and consistently put it in front of peoples’ faces.In Phase 4, I will show you how to systemize, automate, and be consistent with simple promotions.You will be able to make money without having the chance of forgetting to do it (or letting fear of failure get in the way).
  • Learn to sell on social media, in your writing, and across different platforms.
  • Have consistent sales coming in while focusing on your meaningful message (no need to sound salesy all the time).
  • Learn advanced automation strategies that you can implement at your own pace, especially once you validate your offer.

Bonus) The Creator Command Center

The Creator Command Center is a Notion template that houses all of the systems.This is how you will manage your brand, content, offer creation, marketing strategy, and systemized promotions for consistent sales.

Bonus) Live Product Build & Launch

In the first Digital Economics Cohort, I built out my course The 2 Hour Writer.I have videos showing how I build it with the strategies in phase 3 and 4.There is a bonus module that shows how I had an $85,000 launch that resulted in my first $100K month.I did this to prove the strategies inside Digital Economics work if you stick to the plan.And, this past Black Friday, I blew my that monthly high out of the water in 4 days.That’s the power of these strategies if you stay consistent with your life’s work.

If you're wondering why our courses are priced lower than the original prices and are feeling a bit suspicious (which is understandable), we can provide proof of the course's contents. We can provide a screenshot of the course's contents or send you a freebie, such as an introduction video or another video from the course, to prove that we do have the course.

2023.06.02 21:30 saatsazwatch Top 5 BEST Seiko Divers Watches in 2023

Top 5 BEST Seiko Divers Watches in 2023
People believe that wearing a watch during a rainy day would ultimately damage it and is simply impossible. What if we tell you that with Seiko Watches, not only can you wear your watch in the shower, but you can also reach depths of 200 meters in water while wearing it on your wrist?

Seiko Divers Watch

These days most advanced watches are considered dive watches because of their water resistance up to at least 100 meters. However, some models of Seiko Diver Watches can reach much deeper than that; for example, the Seiko Prospex S23635 watch allows you to scuba dive to depths of 1000 meters in the ocean!
The Seiko Dive Watches come with many various colorful designs that will please anyone’s fashion taste. They can be worn just as everyday watches and steal glances to your wrist. The waterproof feature is an add-on to their sleek design and the diver watches are not just defined by that.

History of Seiko Divers Watches

The very first Seiko Diver Watch was introduced in 1965 in Japan. Everything started with the history of “not being able to use wristwatches under the water”. That was when one of the world’s most distinguished watch making companies, Seiko, decided to invent the first professional Diver’s timepiece for up to 150 meters in Japan.
Shortly after that, they introduced the Seiko 300m Dive watch in 1968. But their greater invention was yet to come. In 1975, after 7 years of research, the company invented the world’s first Professional Diver’s 600m watch and this was a milestone in the company’s history. This watch had a fabulous design too and came with a titanium case.
After this great invention, Seiko did not stop. Even to this day, their bright and brilliant team of engineers is using innovative technology to manufacture more advanced dive watches to introduce to the world.

What makes Seiko Dive Watches good?

Seiko Divers Watches are one of the most outstanding timepieces one can wear. Unlike most watches that get entirely damaged in water, Seiko Dive Watches offer you relief and peace of mind while you go swimming in the water. Their spectacular design makes them the most suitable timepieces for divers and swimmers. Take into consideration that, they are intellectual in design and the brand provides customers with a high-quality timepiece.
These watches are called “True Diver’s Watches” by Seiko, and this shows the pride they take, and the trust they have in their watches. The Seiko Divers Watches warranty differs from model to model and from country to country; but in the United States, you can expect at least a 2-year Seiko watch warranty when you buy one of these beautiful watches.

Best Seiko Dive Watches in 2023

Seiko is one of the most satisfactory in dive watch marketing. People are always searching for a timepiece that is worth their money. We have done the research, so you don’t have to spend your time.

2023.06.02 21:30 MrMannForce Red sun over mountains and bull

Red sun over mountains and bull
I believe this is oil on canvas. It measures 38” w x 50” h. It shows a red sun over mountains on the top half in a much thicker paint with a bull over a small black circle on the bottom half in much less paint. I bought this at a thrift store (St. Vincent DePaul) outside of Cincinnati around 1997 or so. Been hanging on various walls of my residences since then. It has a signature of “Ciro” on the front. The back appears to have had paper at some point but is now just frame and open canvas. There is a stamp of “Artmaster Studios No. Hollywood California” on the back which I am not sure if it was a gallery or art supply store or mass manufacturer. There is a “#T-77” at the top of the back frame. There are also a couple other scribbles on the frame on the back which I can’t really tell if they are intentional..both appear to say “JA” with one scribbled over. Possibly a mass produced item but could not find anything similar on google. Would love to know more. Thanks!

Metallix Uprising - Chapter 4
AO3 Link
Chapter 4: Pity

\11 AS. Quartz Quadrant (Good Future).\**
Sonic runs around an underground utopia colored green with glowing buildings, opulent towers of crystals, and mountains and forestry. With 4 Time Stones in his possession, and the Robot Generators of this area destroyed, the blue blur is trying to find any sign of either Robotnik or Metal Sonic. He’s particularly eager to throw hands with his robotic faker, but he’s able to enjoy the sights as he continues on.
Sonic: “Man…this place is beautiful…”
Sonic: “Those crystals are especially eye-catching! I’m a little tempted to grab one of them, and take it with me as a souvenir!”
Sonic: “But I don’t wanna mess with anything! So I’ll just admire it from a distance!”
Soon enough, Sonic arrives at a room with a conveyor belt, and a long, tube-shaped mech attached to the ceiling, where Dr. Robotnik resides inside. He appears to be doing something with the mech’s console, clearly a little annoyed as he talks to himself.
Robotnik: “Ugh! This is much worse than the future I made!”
Sonic: “You’re just salty because your face isn’t plastered everywhere!”
Hearing the words of his enemy, Robotnik perks up a bit and looks at Sonic, who waves with a smug smirk. Then, with an angered expression, the doctor presses a button on his console, which causes the tube-shaped mech he’s in to drop to the conveyor belt floor, with an audible thunk. Plus, the entrance Sonic just went through is blocked by a spiked wall.
Robotnik: “Tch! Even if that WAS the case, I would still hate this!”
Robotnik: “Hence, why I’m gonna have to grab those Time Stones you collected!”
Sonic: “I thought your plan was to have your robo-hog beat me at Stardust Speedway, and get all the Time Stones then?”
Robotnik: “That’s mainly for Metal Sonic to fight you! I don’t mind getting a few of those gemstones a little earlier than planned!”
Robotnik: “Now, get a load of THIS!”
Pressing another button on his console, Robotnik activates the conveyor belt, which starts to push Sonic towards the spiked wall. Though, the blue blur isn’t fazed, and just starts running while smirking at the round doctor, who looks like he was expecting something much different.
Sonic: “Is THIS seriously your plan, Eggman? Trying to give me a workout?”
Robotnik: “No! I had a different machine set up here!”
Sonic: “Heh! Guess changing the future erased whatever robot you were gonna use from existence!”
Robotnik: “Well, it’s no issue! I can still take you out!”
Grabbing ahold of the two console sticks, Robotnik spawns a few spiked bombs from his machine that move across the ceiling, before falling down onto the conveyor belt to hurt Sonic. But sadly for the doctor, the hedgehog is easily able to dodge these bombs, while continuing to get on his nerves.
Sonic: “Running AND dodging? You’re really trying to make me work up a sweat!”
Robotnik: “Rrrgghhhh! No matter! Once you arrive at Stardust Speedway, Metal Sonic will destroy you without any issue!”
Sonic: “While you are here, I figure I should ask about him.”
Sonic: “For your first attempt at making a robot version of me, chrome dome looks pretty advanced.”
Robotnik: “Impressed? I knew from the start that he would be my greatest creation yet!”
Robotnik: “And while it would have taken me a year to fully complete and perfect him, the Time Stone gave me all the time in the world to do so!”
As the two continue their conversation, the bottom of Robotnik’s tube-mech starts to burn due to the friction from the conveyor belt. And after dodging another few bombs, Sonic starts to run backwards while talking.
Sonic: “Admittedly, he is pretty tough. Even has some of my moves.”
Sonic: “I’m guessing you used some data or whatever from our last few encounters?”
Robotnik: “Exactly! It’s why I captured and sent you to Robotnik Island and the Super Labyrinth in the first place!”
Robotnik: “A means to figure out what makes you tick, and how your speed works!”
Sonic: “Hmph. Trying to use my speed for your goals?”
Before Robotnik can respond, his tube-mech burns even more from the friction with the conveyor belt, destroying itself little-by-little. Then, he continues, with Sonic turning back to run normally.
Robotnik: “Why wouldn’t I want to use your power for myself? It’s what makes you such a pain in my side!”
Sonic: “Even so, there’s no way Metal can compare to me! I’ll prove it when the time comes!”
Robotnik: “Don’t be so confident! The original isn’t always the best!”
Robotnik: “And when the time comes, Metal will prove that fact!”
Sonic smirks a bit at Robotnik’s remark, but before he can comment on it, the tube-mech breaks down even more. Plus, the doctor’s starting to tap his feet a bit from the heat of the friction, clearly looking panicked. And as for the blue blur, he’s still dodging the bombs easily, while continuing his smack-talk.
Sonic: “What’s the matter, doc? Feeling the burn? Losing a few pounds?”
Robotnik: “S-Shut up! I just…have to get going now!”
Despite his feet-tapping, Robotnik manages to set his tube-mech to auto-pilot with the console, and proceeds to run off, while using the Time Stone he has to teleport away. And in a few seconds, the machine is destroyed, and Sonic heads off, reaching the Flower Capsule.
Sonic: “Heh! That was a nice little workout! But I think I ought to get going!”
After destroying the Flower Capsule, releasing all the colorful flowers within it, Sonic heads out of Quartz Quadrant, ready for whatever comes next.
\Some time later. Wacky Workbench (Present).\**
In a large warehouse with purple walkways, abstract mechanisms, a flashing checkered floor with bouncing platforms, grounded police sirens, and atom-like structures that generate electrical currents, Sonic is trying to carefully navigate the area, but is definitely struggling.
Because of all the bouncing platforms, electrical currents, and the many badniks, Sonic has been getting hurt a lot. However, he’s eventually able to reach an enclosed area with metal pistons, where he can catch his breath. And once he does, the blue blur starts an angry rant about what he just went through.
Sonic: “This place is an absolute mess! There’s so much I have to watch out for!”
Sonic: “Just how does Robotnik get through here!? Does he have some sort of secret passage somewhere!?”
Sonic: “Ugh! Trying to find the Robot Generators here is gonna be a chore!”
Sonic: “But whatever! I still gotta free this place! And I can use the Time Stones I have to get to the past easily!”
Trying to calm down a little, Sonic pulls out the purple Time Stone, and puts it up into the air, where it starts to emit a sparkly glow. Then, the world around the blue blur is covered in sparkly green energy, as the landscape changes. In only a few seconds, the energy disappears, and the hedgehog takes a look around.
Now, the warehouse appears to be under construction, with much of the girders and platforms colored green. The canyon area outside is also exposed, alongside some cranes, scaffolds, and girders looming below. But stuff like the checkered floor and bouncing platforms are still present. Seeing that not much has changed from the Present time, Sonic lets out an annoyed sigh.
Sonic: “Dangit…I was hoping traversing this place would be easier in the past…”
Sonic: “Though, at least it doesn’t look as bad as before.”
Feeling more confident and collected, Sonic decides to get a move on. Though, just as he turns around to where the metal pistons are, he’s startled by something he wasn’t expecting to see. It was Metal Sonic, but…it looked more blue than it was supposed to be. And that’s when the blue blur sees what it is.
It was a hologram of Metal Sonic, who’s stomping on one of the animals in Wacky Workbench. Nearby was the projector device. Now knowing it’s not the real deal, Sonic sighs and comments on the hologram.
Sonic: “A hologram projector, huh? Guess this is supposed to scare the animals here? Or is this some way of messing with me?”
Sonic: “Well, either way, it’s getting smashed.”
Walking over to the projector device, Sonic proceeds to stomp on it, crushing the thing to pieces, and causing the hologram to fade out. After that, the hedgehog thinks on a few things.
Sonic: “Come to think of it, I haven’t seen Metal Sonic in a while…and I don’t know how Amy’s doing currently…”
Sonic: “She’s probably freaked out right now…but I think I’m getting close to Stardust Speedway!”
Sonic: “So, I need to wrap things up here, and rescue her! Plus, send robo me to the scrap heap!”
Sonic: “Then, I can take care of Robotnik, save Little Planet, and call it a day!”
With a smirk, Sonic heads off to find the Robot Generators in Wacky Workbench, determined to do what he does best: Save the day, and beat Robotnik at whatever he does!
\Some time later. Stardust Speedway (Bad Future).\**
Amy Rose sits down on the floor in her empty metal cell, having a downcast expression. Outside of the cell, a few Badniks are watching over her, making sure she doesn’t try anything. However, the pink hedgehog has come to see that she can’t do much here, aside from mess with her Tarot Cards and think to herself.
Occasionally, the Badniks deliver some food and drinks to Amy, but they all don’t taste very good. So, the pink hedgehog hasn’t eaten much, and she’s feeling both bored, and concerned for what could happen next. Especially if Sonic isn’t able to find and rescue her. However, she refuses to give in to despair. She knows her hero will save her.
In order to distract herself from her situation for a bit, Amy decides to mess with her Tarot Cards again. Though, just a little while after she starts, she hears the sound of mechanical footsteps, which means her kidnapper has shown up again. Looking up towards the laser gate, the pink hedgehog sees Metal Sonic staring at her, with the Badniks being told to leave.
In it’s hands is a metal tray with some fried eggs, a biscuit with the Robotnik logo on it, and a plastic cup with water in it. This catches Amy’s attention, and she goes up to the laser gate as the robotic hedgehog speaks.
Metal Sonic: “Sonic The Hedgehog will arrive here soon.”
Metal Sonic: “Hence, you must be properly fed before the trap is set.”
Amy: “Ummm…thank you, but why not have these robots deliver this to me?”
Metal Sonic: “I decided that you should be notified ahead of time, so that you can make peace with your fate.”
Metal Sonic: “And while I was at it, I decided to take the food here myself.”
Amy: “...”
Amy gives a curious look towards Metal Sonic, seemingly trying to figure something out. This continues for a few seconds until the robotic hedgehog speaks again.
Metal Sonic: “...What is with that expression? Are you not interested in food currently?”
Metal Sonic: “If that is the case, then I shall promptly throw this away.”
Amy: “No, it’s not that! I just don’t buy your reasoning for coming here!”
Amy: “You didn’t really need to tell me Sonic was gonna be here soon, and you didn’t need to feed me ahead of time.”
Amy: “To me, it seems like you want to make me a little happier in my final moments.”
Metal Sonic: “Consider it your last moment of peace before the inevitable.”
Metal Sonic: “After I’ve killed my organic counterpart, you will follow suit.”
As Amy continues the conversation, Metal Sonic puts the tray of food into a compartment in the wall, which moves over to the other side of the laser gate, allowing Ms. Rose to eat some of it. Though, she just keeps talking.
Amy: “I still don’t buy it! You may say that you’re just a killing machine, but I think there’s more to you than that!”
Amy: “You have your own thoughts, and the ability to make your own decisions! Not like the rest of these machines, who just follow orders!”
Amy: “And while you can deny it all you like, I know deep down, you’ve got a bit of a soft spot!”
Metal Sonic: “Once again, you talk nonsense out of desperation.”
Metal Sonic: “If I was ordered to by my master, I wouldn’t hesitate to destroy you.”
Metal Sonic: “I don’t even know why I bother listening to you when it doesn’t benefit my directives.”
Amy: “Well…maybe it’s because you want to listen?”
Amy: “Not because it benefits you in any way, but rather, because you’re interested in what I have to say?”
Amy: “And maybe…a part of you enjoys listening to what I have to say, too?”
Metal Sonic: “...”
The two hedgehogs share a moment of silence, with the pink one smiling at the robotic one, hoping to reach through to it. But when the moment passes, Metal Sonic responds.
Metal Sonic: “...I’ll admit hearing such differing thoughts and views compared to Robotnik was interesting.”
Metal Sonic: “But I don’t care about what you say to me. As far as I’m aware, you’re merely dirt beneath my feet.”
Amy: “Then why do you keep this conversation going?”
Metal Sonic: “Why does it matter to you? Why do you bother speaking to me?”
Metal Sonic: “I was the one who kidnapped and imprisoned you. I’m the one who’s about to kill the one you love.”
Metal Sonic: “These factors indicate you should hate me. Yet, you insist on talking to me every time I’m here.”
Amy: “Well…I wouldn’t say I like you.”
Amy: “More so…I pity you.”
Amy: “No matter how much you deny it, you’re more than a killing machine. You have your own emotions and thoughts.”
Amy: “You can do so much more with your life. Yet, you keep following some madman who only sees you as a tool for his own desires.”
Metal Sonic: “Dr. Robotnik considers me his greatest creation. Why would he not care?”
Amy: “Just because you’re his greatest creation doesn’t mean he genuinely cares for your well-being.”
Amy: “What if he decides to replace you with a more advanced robot?”
Metal Sonic: “He has no need for it! I’m already advanced enough!”
Amy: “Then what if you fail a mission, and he ends up scraping you? Or leaves you to die?”
Metal Sonic: “I never fail!”
Amy: “No one is perfect! Everyone makes mistakes sometimes! Even you!”
Amy: “But if your creator saw you fail…what would happen?”
Amy: “Do you really think he’d be understanding? That he would-”
Metal Sonic: “ENOUGH!”
Suddenly, Metal Sonic punches the laser gate, startling Amy and making her fall to the ground. She’s clearly frightened, as the robotic hedgehog glares at her while ranting.
Metal Sonic: “It doesn’t matter if he cares about me or not! What matters is that I accomplish every directive he sets for me!”
Metal Sonic: “And I don’t make mistakes! I am the most advanced and powerful machine ever created!”
Metal Sonic: “Even Sonic can’t compare to me! He’s nothing more than my inferior counterpart!”
Amy: “...”
Despite her fear, Amy puts on a brave face as she gets back up. Metal Sonic has basically proven her point. He DOES have his own thoughts and emotions. He IS more than a machine. And now realizing that he snapped, the robotic hedgehog moves his fist off the laser gate and backs up a bit, looking down at the ground with clenched hands.
But before either of them can comment on this, Robotnik walks in. He’s clearly a little annoyed, though also looking eager for some reason. This snaps Metal Sonic out of his current state, as he looks over at his creator. Amy also stares at the round doctor too with an irritated expression. Then, the robotic hedgehog speaks.
Metal Sonic: “...Is it time, master?”
Robotnik: “It’s fast approaching. The hedgehog just got out of Wacky Workbench, and has the 5 Time Stones we need.”
Robotnik: “Hence, we need to set up the trap now. I’ve already moved the Robot Generators somewhere else so that Sonic can’t mess with the future of this area.”
Robotnik: “So, let’s grab the girl here, and take her to the raceway.”
Metal Sonic: “Yes. I’ve waited too long for this moment.”
After turning the laser gate off with the console, Metal Sonic proceeds to grab Amy by her wrists, despite her best efforts to escape, and then flies off to the racetrack where his fight with Sonic will take place. Robotnik also follows them in his Egg Mobile, eager to finally watch his greatest creation defeat his arch-nemesis.
While Amy is still very scared, she’s still holding onto hope. She knows Sonic will rescue her, no matter what Metal Sonic or Robotnik try to pull.
However…a part of Amy still feels pity for the metallic hedgehog…

2023.06.02 21:28 buteo51 Prologue: The Bronze Age Collapse

Ramesses shaded his eyes from the blazing sun and looked to the south. Thousands of chariots thundered towards the Egyptian camp, driving the tattered survivors of the Ra division before them. The Lord of Hatti had laid his trap well, keeping his forces hidden behind the city until the time was right, circling back to pounce on the Egyptians from behind. Ramesses raised his bow and called to his personal guard, bracing them to meet the Hittite charge…
Whatever the outcome, the battlefield at Kadesh lay at the heart of a deeply interconnected world. Levies from the upper reaches of the Nile clashed with mercenaries from the foothills of the Caucasus. Jewels from Afghanistan glittered on garments dyed in Crete. An endless stream of heralds carried letters from one end of the known world to the other.
Within a few generations, only the ghosts of that world would remain. One by one, the empires of the bronze age were brought low by the challenges of disease, famine, war, or rebellion. The great kings took much with them into myth or obscurity – dust settled on empty cities and shattered idols were swallowed by the sands – but this was not a calamity for everyone. For subaltern groups and newcomers from distant places, an age of opportunity was dawning. They could now find the space to create their own societies. Others found ways to breathe fresh life into the ruins of what came before. History was not over. New powers would soon arise.

[META]: Season 6 of Historical World Powers officially begins this Monday, June 5th, 2023. The map opens for claims on Saturday, June 3rd at 00:00 GMT.

2023.06.02 21:28 MN_RavenCroft Proverbs: A call to Action

I've been reading Proverbs and realize something. It's one thing to say that Christ is your Lord and savior, but that alone isn't enough. Proverbs 1:7 states "The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction."
Let's break that passage down for a moment. What is "the fear of the Lord" ? It's being aware that what you think, say and do are being watched and evaluated by God. And what does Solomon mean by "Knowledge"? It's a deeper understanding how we're all part of God's beautiful design.
Fools, as Solomon writes, choose not to act, not to understand. Many of us rest on our laurels and do nothing. We think that it's someone else's job. Proverbs goes further with this in v.20-22: "Wisdom cries aloud in the street, in the markets she raises her long O simple ones, will you love being simple? How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing and fools hate knowledge?"
Consider the homeless person that you see on the streets, or the person who is having a bad day, or someone who needs help crossing the street...what would the fool do?
The fool would only care about themselves and leave that person to their own devices, maybe rationalizing it with "I'm too busy" or "Not my problem". Excuses upon excuses.
Proverbs 3:27 makes it our problem....or better yet, a possible solution "Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to do it." Look inwards and consider what is REALLY holding you back from walking the talk...
So I say to you, my Brothers and Sisters in Christ, Do good to whomever you may meet, whoever God puts in your path, and you will be rewarded. It's our duty as Christians to do more than just talk a good game, but to actually ACT and further God's grace. Inattentiveness and Complacency are tools of the wicked. Don't get caught in that trap.

2023.06.02 21:28 buyinguselessshit Touhou isn't just about girls shooting

Touhou isn't just about girls shooting
It’s more than that, let me explain.
Since Touhou is the paragone of human virtue without equal past or present, it is most resplendent in love, tributes and accolades. Waking or sleeping, I must not forget Touhou’s great boon and in order to return its favour by day and by night, I should only think of fulfilling my loyalty.
What is Touhou? For the blind, it is their vision. For the deaf, it is their music. For the mute, it is their voice. For the anosmiac, it is their aroma. For the numb, it is their feeling. For the atrophied, it is their muscle. For the starved, it is their sustenance. For the thirsty, it is their water. For the exhausted, it is their energy. For the depressed, it is their happiness. For the disillusioned, it is their hope. For the pessimistic, it is their optimism. For the disadvantaged, it is their champion. For the marginalised, it is their justice. For the oppressed, it is their salvation. For the righteous, it is their symbol. For the enlightened, it is their muse. For the erudite, it is their education.
If ZUN speaks, I listen. If ZUN questions, I answer. If ZUN orders, I obey. If ZUN opines, I agree. If ZUN fears, I assure. If ZUN hopes, I dream. If ZUN is happy, I am jubilant. If ZUN is angry, I am apoplectic. If ZUN is sad, I am disconsolate.
Touhou is my ideal, Touhou is my romance, Touhou is my passion. Touhou is my strength, Touhou is my compass, Touhou is my destination. Touhou is my language, Touhou is my culture, Touhou is my religion. Touhou is my ocean, Touhou is my mountain, Touhou is my sky, Touhou is my air, Touhou is my sun, Touhou is my moon, Touhou is my world. Touhou is history, Touhou is present, Touhou is future.
If Touhou has a million fans, I am one of them. If Touhou has a thousand fans, I am one of them. If Touhou has a hundred fans, I am one of them. If Touhou has ten fans, I am one of them. If Touhou has only one fan, that is me. If Touhou has no fans, I no longer exist. If the whole universe is for Touhou, then I am for the whole universe. If the whole universe is against Touhou, then I am against the whole universe. I will love, cherish, and protect Touhou until my very last breath; my successors will love, cherish and protect Touhou until their very last breath.
In Touhou we trust, amen 🙏

2023.06.02 21:28 lostacoshermanos We need to stop eating at restaurants and just cook at home.

Fast food USED to be cheap. I just saw a coupon for 2 pieces of chicken the other day for Popeyes. It was 2 pieces of chicken and a biscuit for $5.49 with a coupon. McDonald’s hot n spicy is now like $2.50 and if you buy 2 only the second one is a dollar.
What about restaurants? A family of 4 at a steakhouse costs at least $150 not counting a tip. Starbucks drinks coffee or frap are like $7. A chipotle bowl you could make at home for $2 in ingredients is $9.
The only processed or ready food that is worth it anymore is loss leader rotisserie chicken at Costco for $5. You could use the leftovers to make a chipotle bowl or chicken sandwich.
Cooking at home is….
no paying the restaurant employees on top of the bill
the ability to cut out sugar and salt
fresher meat and veggies
way cheaper
Also the time you save not driving to the place or waiting in the drive through or in line for carrying out is about the same time it costs to make this stuff.

2023.06.02 21:28 Iniquitousintention The Dating app experience

Having argued with countless wonderful women on here, I decided to make a post cuz why tf not
This link is to a video from Alexander grace, A youtube creator who creates content (Highly suggest you guys to watch the video as its an eye opener for both genders)
Now to my experience
So I created two tinder accounts after I had a debate with my female friend regarding the male experience. For the experience, I used the picture of a latina camgirl and the picture of a brazilian fmale supermodel. For the former, I put up a profile infor that she was a bartender and with some basic highschool has education whereas for the latter , I put up saying I make 100k a year whos working as a Doctor. The woman profile had 100+likes in the first few hrs. The male profile had 20. Now mind you the cam model was like a 6-7/10 in terms of attractiveness and the guy was a solid 10. The female friend didnt wanna acknowledge the outcome after one day and she basically never brought it up (typical).
Most guys , even if they are on god mod, will never draw the kind of response a female can get on dating apps. Even the girl in the video (check the link) nearly lost her shit by the end. So yeah ladies , We dont bombard profiles because we are chasing pussy. At some point, the best strategy is to knock on every door till some open.Even when the door is open its only level one till you reach a point.

Just to be outside and getting vitamin D. But I have a lot to do on my computer. Things to fill out.. porn to watch.. ya know the usual.

2023.06.02 21:27 thebouncingcupcake Does applying AHA (glycolic acid) on wet skin make things worse? My last exfoliation went so wrong

Hello, so about 2 weeks ago I did my usual AHA exfoliation , I do this every 2-3 weeks now and woke up to a very,very red, dry and tight face. Since then I keep getting these small itchy bug-bite sized bumps on my jawline and cheeks (my rosacea spots) that just barely seem to calm down , as in not appear again the next day.
As any person would do I immediately quit any skincare I'd normally do and just use watethermal water spray and let the skin be for a few days since I was 99% sure I damaged my moisture barrier. Fast forward to today and while the tightness does seem to be disappearing I still have a few of those itchy suckers and some pigmentation marks from the previous ones (that I hope will fade ASAP, I was bitten by mosquitoes on my face so I hope these fade just as quick.
Then,as any paranoid and desperate person would do I google'd trying to figure out what the heck went wrong and after reading a bit here and there I have learned that apparently glycolic acid should be avoided for us rosacea prone people since it's incredibly harsh. Now mind you the first times I used this product it faded my redness and I was amazed by the results (almost 2 years ago) . The only other time when I messed up was when I used it too often, but I learned my lesson and spaced it out since.
Now I have 2 questions: should chemical exfoliants be avoided all together? Or should I try to find a product with lower concentration? The one I currently have is 15% glycolic acid.
I also used to do physical exfoliation with oatmeal when I wasn't using the glycolic acid because after one point my skin just gets gritty and my skincare products don't absorb as well ( dead skin, I assume) .
The other question is the title of this post: does applying acids, especially glycolic, on wet skin make things worse? This is the only thing I did different compared to the other times.I want to know the cause of my screw up so I know to never,ever do this again in my life.
I'm already avoiding the sun like the plague and hoping my skin heals in the next month.
And yes, I live in fear of exfoliation now lol.
Thanks for coming to my ted talk.

2023.06.02 21:26 HelloWorld5634 I’m not happy for my friend’s “relationship”

This is a long story so buckle up lol! So I (19f) moved away for college and I was super excited. I don’t get along with my family at all and I didn’t have any friends because I was bullied so I was excited to make some new friends. Everything was great at first. I made friends with a bunch of people inside and outside of major and things were looking up. The only problem is, I unintentionally gained the “mother” role to all of my friends. To be honest it was horrible. I became very depressed as I held all of my emotions in while spending hours comforting my friends and listening to their problems. I’m not a particularly open person with my emotions but it would’ve been nice if one person put in even a modicum of effort to show that they care. Anyway Alex (19m) was a friend of mine. If we were hanging out, it typically consisted of me listening to his problems. He had a lot of relationship troubles and I was constantly there to support him. Once he got out of his toxic relationship he started flirting with me. They were jokes but the jokes were just “let’s have sex” and “if I come over to your dorm I’m expecting a blow job”. At first I reciprocated in the jokes because I thought they were funny. It escalated when we were in my dorm room one day and he was taking the sexual things kind of far. No matter if I brushed him off or tried to change the topic he would still make these jokes. Said jokes escalated even further and it was very clear to me that if I gave in he would have sex with me. I wasn’t particularly comfortable with this because no guy has ever cared about me. They’ve only used me for sex so it was depressing to think that after all this time the friendship was a ploy (the friendship was probably genuine from his end but once he wanted sex he stopped treating like a human being so to me it felt like sex was always his end goal). Then he came over again and I wanted to watch a cartoon I really love but he said “I came over here for one reason and one reason only. Sex”. Which of course made me feel horrible. Then he tried to get me to take off my shorts and underwear. I asked why my shorts weren’t enough for him and said he got tired of looking at girls in their underwear. Then compared me to another girl that goes to our school. He said “well if you were … then obviously I’d be awestruck every time…” by this point I shut down. When I’m upset I usually go completely non verbal and very blank faced. He left shortly after that. Then he started being needlessly rude to me and acted grossed out by me. One time in particular I accidentally brushed his hand and he was like “ew that’s disgusting don’t do that” My other friend Max (19 and non-binary) started messing around w Alex and told everyone in the group but me. I confided in Max and they seemed sympathetic and really understood my issues w men not actually caring about me. Now I’m never one to tell people who they can and cannot sleep with because of course not. It was just a bit of a shock because they seemed sympathetic at first. I tried to speak to them again about the ways in which Alex had hurt me and Max while seemingly in agreeable with me stated that they liked the male validation so they were going to continue with the relationship. To be clear I wasn’t telling them my opinion on the relationship I was simply sharing my own personal experience. The worst part about it is that Alex treats Max with kindness and respected which I do not understand. How could my friend treat me so poorly and then be kind to someone else. I tried to talk to my other friends about It but they brushed me off. I’m not sure if there’s a piece to the puzzle that Im missing or if there is something fundamental wrong with me that causes people to be explicitly unkind to me. I haven’t spoken to either of them since the start of the summer.

2023.06.02 21:25 pinkbuffalo3 Depths Mines without chests?

So I’ve been exploring the depths for a bit, and I’ve come across several of these mines everywhere. Most of them have chests that either contain crystallized charges or armor pieces. However, I’ve found a few mines that have a location where a chest would be (the little sand rings) but there isn’t one. (Also just for clarification, I’m not talking about the pillars that lead up to the surface.)
Am I missing something? Is there a puzzle I need to do nearby? Or do some mines simply not have anything in them?

2023.06.02 21:25 Hypnoticbeatle Feedback on high level item ability

I am creating magic items for each god in my homebrew setting. These are based off of the Vestiges of Divergence from Critical Role, and they will increase in power as the campaign goes on and my PC's earn the god's favor. It is also possible that they may never unlock all the abilities. The last tier of the weapon is meant to make them powerful enough as a group to stand toe to toe with some of the most powerful creatures in the game.
I was looking through my most recent one for Apollo, Seething Wreath, and was wondering if the Blazing Ward ability seemed too strong or weak for level 16-17 play. As a reference of what I'm going for, I will include an item for Talos, Temptuous Ire, that I am happy with at the bottom. Any constructive feedback is welcome, and I am open to suggestions about other abilities as well. I really want to make these items something exciting and worth working on to get those higher level abilities. Here is the item:

Seething Wreath (Headgear)


When you first attune to Seething Wreath, you are granted the following benefits in it's dormant state:


When Seething Wreath reaches an awakened state, it gains the following properties:


When Seething Wreath reaches an exalted state, it gains the following properties:

Temptuous Ire (Longsword)


Temptuous Ire is a +1 longsword. When you first attune to Temptuous Ire, you are granted the following benefits in it's dormant state:


When Temptuous Ire reaches an awakened state, it gains the following properties:


When Temptuous Ire reaches an exalted state, it gains the following properties:

2023.06.02 21:25 Some0wlOnTheInternet A little rant about this community.

It boggles me how dumb alot of people people in this community are, I understand alot of this community are new to the game but I see the dumbest questions and takes every day. Even some youtubers spew out garbage. I once argued with someone about height over bore in this game (which doesn't exist) and I showed him multiple examples of it not existing ingame and he nitpicked every one of them even tho the examples were night and day. I also see people complain about the dumbest things like pseudo chrosshairs (random useless button put in the center of your screen) and say it should be bannable.
Theres a very popular youtuber in this community and he made a video naming signs of a bad player and almost ALL of his takes were awful. Thank god he deleted the video because he called out another popular CC which sparked beef. I obviously cant say names because its against this subs rules but IF YOU KNOW, YOU KNOW. The same youtuber who made that video also spewed more garbage calling team players bad, saying armory doesn't take skill, etc.
There used to be a moderator for the offical discord (he got fired), and he would try to invalidate people's feedback because it has some relation to pubg or cod, and he would make up his own rules. This guy was a crazy elitist for the game.

2023.06.02 21:25 Zipzapzipzapzipzap Anyone know where I can get the HPV vaccine in Cork as an adult?

Recently learned that gay men can get rectal cancer from HPV, despite the fact that when I was in school they only vaccinated the girls and never told us that was a risk (god bless the Catholic Church)🙄
Anyways anyone know where one can get the vaccine as an adult in Cork? Preferably without paying…

2023.06.02 21:24 mira272727 he hates non muslims but didnt he "create" us

ok i have be doubting islam since i was nine and now im an ex-muslim. one thing that so funny to me is that in the quran said that god controls everything and made everything meaning he created his perfect being(the profht) and created lesser being then him(us) .
he created this whole universe...for what?? why does he need acknowledgement from his creations?? doesnt that sould like a child playing toys😭
he technically created the gays and ex-muslims .like if he truly loves why would he create sinners and jinns? just make everyone good and destry hell it makes no sence i swear
