2023.06.09 00:16 Ok-Exercise2169 Possible ways Naruto could be scaled to uni(Debunkable)

Possible ways Naruto could be scaled to uni(Debunkable)
ten tails scaling
The ten tails was stated to have created the universe. Kaguya is stronger than the ten tails. Naruto matched Kaguya in strength twice. Even, cutting her arm off once. Not to mention, Naruto mid diff'd Toneri who was the strongest opponent he faced up until that point and Naruto overpowering fused Momoshiki, when base Momoshiki was already implied to be stronger than kaguya.
Kaguya"s time-spaces
Kaguya's dimensions were called time-spaces multiple times.
Space-time is three dimensions of space and one dimension of time making four dimensions.
The criteria for universal+ is this.
However if you use vs battle wiki, the criteria for universal+ is this.
Not only do I need to prove Kaguya's time-spaces are 4d(which I already did), I also need to prove it's the size of a universe.

Here's where Naruto Ninja storm 4 comes in.
In the boss fight against Kaguya, we see the actual size of her time-spaces.
Not only do we see multiple stars (possibly galaxies idk) , we also see redshifts in her time-spaces(implying her time-space/universe is expanding).
But are the storm games canon? Well, most likely it is. Characters that never appeared in either the anime or manga are considered canon. Content only shown in the game is considered canon. A Statement saying that the game does follow the manga to a certain exert however has additions the manga doesn't have which were approved by Kishimoto. Kishimoto also approved the plot.
Does kaguya actually scale to her dimensions?
Her Expansive truth seeking orb in the databooks were stated to turn the world into nothingness. Also supported by Black zestu stating that it would destroy her time-space. Naruto obviously scales to this.
Momoshiki's parallel universe
This one is really simple. Momoshiki created a parallel universe. Its been stated to be a parallel universe multiple times. Naruto even questions if it's a hyperspace. A hyperspace is a space of more than three dimensions.
What's your guy's thoughts on this?

2023.06.09 00:15 DoctorVoltec Seizure like symptoms?

Just to start with the most important information, I grow my own shroom which I know for certain to be good and safe (i microdose, and trip once a month without issue) I also have a scale which I regularly calibrate and know for certain is accurate. I’ve also been a trip sitter for quite a few people and never experienced anything quite like this. She’s not epileptic and has never had a prior seizure, and she isn’t on any medications or SSRIs.
My partner wanted to try shrooms so I started her off on what I thought to be a very light dose at half a gram. From the start she seemed to be just having some anxiety which is pretty normal, but she suddenly got very bothered by my presence and was very persistent that I leave, so I did. We were in a hotel room, so I just went to the bathroom and listened to make sure she was doing ok.
She started making some concerning breathing/gagging noises, so I went out to check on her and she wasn’t responding to anything I was saying, so I tried to sit her up. As soon as I grabbed her and started trying to pull her up, she flung herself on the ground (no head impact) and started to have what looked to me like a seizure. She was sprawled out shaking like she was very cold, wouldn’t respond to anything I said and her mouth started foaming.
At this point I decided help was needed so I told her to hang tight that I was calling the paramedics to come help her. As soon as I said that, she sat right up and said “no don’t call them I’m ok.” I told her we should at least get her checked, and she was very insistent about not going to the hospital, that she’s perfectly ok. So, i ended up not calling the paramedics. After that she was completely normal like nothing had happened, didn’t even seem like she was tripping anymore. She said she doesn’t remember anything that happened until I said I was calling the paramedics.
Wtf happened here? Can shrooms cause a seizure, and was this one? I’ve never experienced this and I’ve never heard of this happening, I didn’t think there would be any problems with half a gram. More recently she’s been asking to try a gram, but for hopefully obvious reasons I’m extremely hesitant

2023.06.09 00:15 Soranext [IC]The Spartan series collection Part 1 - Keycaps

[IC]The Spartan series collection Part 1 - Keycaps
In this Collection, we will be launching themed products including: Keycap set, Keyboard kit, Coiled cables and desk mat,
We hope you will enjoy our magnum opus, the pinnacle of our year-long creation - the “Sparta” themed keycaps.
In the year 480 BC, the Persian king led a massive army of 300,000 soldiers to wage war against Greece. The Greek city/states swiftly dispatched their armies, forming an alliance in preparation to resist the Persian invasion.
The king of Sparta, along with 300 elite warriors from his city and over 4,000 soldiers from the alliance, stood guard. However, due to the betrayal of a traitor, the Greek forces found themselves outnumbered and surrounded by the Persian army. In order to preserve the strength of the alliance, the king personally led the 300 elite warriors to hold their ground while allowing the rest of the alliance to retreat.
Tens of thousands of Persian soldiers marched forward, but the Spartan soldiers, knowing their certain fate, displayed unwavering morale. They unleashed an astonishing combat prowess throughout the battle, which lasted for 72 days. In the end, the king and his elite warriors perished, while the Persian army suffered losses of over 20,000 soldiers.
Thus, a chapter in history came to a close, unveiling a grand and poignant tale.
Design inspiration:
The design of this keycap set draws inspiration from the movie “300”, a film that I have watched multiple times. It embodies masculinity, courage, and an unwavering refusal to submit to tyranny, with a resolute commitment to defending dignity that echoes through the ages. Therefore, I spent over a year crafting a keycap set titled “Spartan”.
I chose three fundamental colors: the dim sky(Black-gray), the blood spilled in battle(Blood-red), and the ancient bronze-toned skin and metallic armor(Gold). This “World” is composed of these three colors, forever conveying the unforgettable essence of a classic.
For the Base design:
Once the colors were chosen, I began experimenting with various combinations. Ultimately, I decided to go with a black-gray base color with gold legends. In my eyes, this combination best showcases a grand and upright aesthetic. The larger keys are accented with blood-red, symbolizing heroism and brilliance. As for the legends, I opted for Greek characters with distinctive regional qualities. Since Greek uppercase letters share similarities with English, I chose to use lowercase letters instead, which increased the complexity of typesetting and caused me to experience a period of extreme frustration.
By the way, there’s a small hidden surprise in the letter area. I wonder if you’ve noticed it. XD
Design of MODs and Novelties:
I have always wanted to achieve a perfect fit for all keyboards. However, due to limitations in keycap molds, I had to let go of some intricate and compact layouts and return to a more universal design. Although I feel a sense of regret, I believe that it fulfills the basic requirements of the majority of users. (Almost compatible with all layouts except for 40% layouts.)
For the arrow keys, I have also implemented contrasting colors to facilitate the pairing with compact layouts. This ensures that all the keys don’t have the same color, providing more variety and flexibility for smaller keyboards.
The design faithfully reproduces the equipment seen in the movie, such as sturdy round shields, large swords, and sharp spears. It captures the artistic essence of these items, ensuring their accurate representation on the keycaps.
Additionally, there are also various equipment and accessories depicted, such as battle-worn helmets, wolf-tooth necklaces, and cloaks. These elements add further detail and authenticity to the design, showcasing the battle-hardened nature and unique adornments of the Spartans.
Of course, in ancient warfare, the divine protection of the gods cannot be overlooked, especially for the Spartans who revered Zeus and Athena. In light of this, I personally designed special unique keycaps that embody the style of my work. These unique keycaps feature the owl symbol of Athena and the fearsome visage of Zeus, capturing the essence of these deities in a distinctive manner.
The menacing wolf depicted in the movie left a profound impression on me. I believe that the wolf symbolizes the brutality of the battlefield during that time.
Furthermore, I am also fond of the “Nightmare of the enemy” portrayed by the Persian army in the film. Despite being the antagonists, their character design is truly unforgettable and can be considered a classic. As a result, I have designed a unique keycap dedicated to them.
The image above represents the design prototype, and this keycap is based on the specific screenshot from the file. However, due to the limited size of the keycap, it is challenging to fully showcase all the intricate details. I have done my best to capture the essence of the design within these limitations.
Finally, in my unique way, I narrate the life of the king:
Here, I don’t want to provide too much explanation. According to the arrangement of the keycaps, each person will have their own interpretation. The keycaps are designed at different heights, allowing you to create a more vibrant letter area. How you choose to match them is entirely up to you.
I offer a large variety of keycaps and intentionally adjusted positions. There is only one purpose: to cater to your diverse customization options. It allows you to freely create the Spartan theme according to your own preferences.
By the way, I don’t recommend using all of them, as it might have the opposite effect, LoL.
Side print design:
When it comes to side print, it is usually used for annotating key legends, but I find it somewhat dull. How can we make it more practical? As a devoted user of the HHKB layout myself, I wanted to give a special gift to fellow HHKB users with the enhanced version of side print keycaps. This is my first attempt at designing side print keycaps, and I hope it will help everyone become more familiar with the HHKB layout.
In addition to the HHKB-specific key positions, I have added annotations for some commonly used shortcuts. Instead of using text, I opted for beautiful icons. For the F-row design, I used Roman numerals, which enhances the overall visual harmony and aligns better with the theme. I sincerely hope you will like it.
By the way, considering price control and other factors, we have decided not to sell this set separately but to have unified printing. So when you receive the keycaps, the corresponding side prints shown in the images will be present on the keycaps.
Keycap production:
For this set of keycaps, we have employed the latest manufacturing technologies, using WDA profile. You may not be very familiar with WDA keycaps, but rest assured that they meet the highest standards in terms of feel, craftsmanship, and details. Most importantly, the new manufacturing process aligns perfectly with my design intentions, and the addition of gold accents brings vibrancy and liveliness to the artwork. (Please refer to the following text for more details on WDA profile and the manufacturing process.)
During the keycap production, I aimed to create ABS keycaps with a stunning gold flake injection molding technique. Despite the increased cost, I believe every effort is worthwhile to enhance the quality and aesthetics of the artwork. I am confident that you will be amazed by the keycaps I have designed.
Here are the detailed specifications of the keycaps:
Keycap Theme: SPARTAN Designers: DPS Creation & JOJO.STUDIO Keycap counts: BASE 104, Mod 58, Novelties 46, Total of 206 keycaps. Material: ABS with gold glitter injection molding process New technology with UV coating, providing better tactile feel and durability. After 6 months of testing, there is no issue of shining. Profile: WDA profile. Progress: Production has already begun, and they are expected to be available in August for everyone to enjoy.
Here are some showcase images of keycaps and kits.
We are designing Keyboard Kit, Coil Cable and Deskmat at the same time

2023.06.09 00:14 squirrel_mom Restraining Order

Hello, I am needing some peace of mind and a bit of help figuring out possible course of action.
I’m in Florida and am going through a pretty tumultuous break up. This was part of a series of mental health crises where I experienced some very unsafe thoughts. As a result, I lashed out at him in the midst of a crisis. He proceeded to post text messages where my phone number is visible and screenshots with my full name in the caption. As a result, I got an injunction for a restraining order. I have been screen recording and screenshotting everything. The order has not been served yet but he is still posting. Background is that he is currently on probation for domestic violence, strangulation, and currently working through a custody agreement to gain custody back of his child.
Will it be likely my order is granted and what does that possibly mean for his current probation?
Thank you in advance.

2023.06.09 00:14 Frankenberryjujitsu Apex Cannabis Mac 1 Flower Review

Apex Cannabis Mac 1 Flower Review
As I have mentioned in my previous reviews. I was able to pickup 8 different strains of Apex Cannabis flower last weekend and I have been trying a different strain each day. Yesterday I tried his Mac 1.
The bag appeal on this one is good. The buds are relatively small but they are dense and the trichome coverage is good. There’s nothing wrong with this flower but I am so spoiled with the looks of Apex’s other offerings so this one just seemed average. Bag appeal I would give an 8/10
The smell on this bud is pretty average as well. It smelled good but it’s not super loud or anything. It is kind of refreshing to just smell good weed when you take a whiff. I am so used to fruity and cake smells so this strain is kind of nostalgic for me. Smell is an 8/10.
Breakdown of the Bud was good. The smaller popcorn size buds did have sine density to them and it does break down into a lot of smokable material. I actually rolled a joint last night instead of packing a cone and it rolled up nicely. Once lit the joint burned well and it did not have to be relit. I give this flower a 9/10 on the breakdown.
The taste was much like the smell on this strain. It had a nice “good weed” taste. No fruit, gas or any other crazy terps. Like I said earlier smoking it was kind of nostalgic and reminded me of the weed I smoked 25 years ago before all the exotic strains were a big thing. I will give the taste a 8.5/10.
The effects on this one is great. I got an immediate mood boost after a few hits. I got a little bit of energy and I just felt super relaxed and i really enjoy the effects of this strain. All of the worries and stress from my day were washed away and replaced with a euphoric happy high. I could see myself being very social when smoking this strain. It did not make me tired and there was definitely no couch lock. The effects on this flower are really great and I could smoke this stuff at anytime of the day and it would feel right. I give this one a definite 10/10 on the effects
Although I found the looks,, smell and taste to be pretty average on this one. I still would highly recommend it is as a really nice anytime stain. The effects are really great and it’s impossible to be in a bad mood after smoking this Mac 1. My overall score for this strain is a 8.5/10.

"18-year-old Jon Wang, a Florida native who scored a 1590 out of 1600 on the SAT, with a perfect score on the math section. Combined with a 4.65 high school GPA, most would see him as a shoo-in for any elite university. ....
"The top-tier schools I applied to were MIT, CalTech, Princeton, Harvard, Carnegie-Mellon and U.C. Berkeley," he said.
Wang was rejected by all of them."

Perfect math score....rejected by all those schools? LMAO.

2023.06.09 00:13 ironburton Engine flooded? 2000 Buick regal

It’s my first time here so I hope I’m doing this properly.
I had my entire radiator replaced by a mechanic and everything seemed good. I ran out of coolant a few weeks ago and replaced the coolant 3 days ago. Reason why I didn’t replace coolant sooner is that my car just doesn’t over heat. Even when the radiator was cracked. It would go above midway heat when I sat and idoling but never when driving. Now the radiator is brand new.
Anyway… today my check engine light came on. It never comes on. The engine has always been perfect. I went to Costco and when I came out my engine turned on initially but was stuttering and then died. Then we kept trying to turn it on and it kept dying. I looked at the coolant reservoir and it’s almost totally gone after filling it 3 days prior. This feels so random. Nothing has happened to to the car. I called the mechanic and told him what happened and what I suspected and he immediately said “no that’s not possible”.
I don’t want to get fucked over here. I’m not currently working as I’m disabled and applying for disability. I have $100 to my name and don’t want them to fuck me over if it’s actually their mistake and something like that could happens when they replaced it.
Any info super appreciated! If anyone needs more info I’ll give it.

2023.06.09 00:13 Thick-Painting420 Need some advice rn tbh I'm not feeling well

did i make the right decision? i think I did but I want some other opinions
to make things short, I got accepted into several good unis but in short as of now I have three active offers. science at queens university, undecided science (first year only) at york and commerce at york. As of now, I am not 100 percent sure what I wanna do. if I go down the science route my goal would either be PharmD or optometry. and obviously, as u guys know, there are only two schools for that in ontario and they are both far away from where I live and far away from queens as well. my plan is the following (please dont judge if anything sounds unrealistic, cuz I thought long and hard about this and I am honestly so stressed at this point) : I will go for undecided first year at york, I chose this because I get all electives first year which would help me in deciding what I like + transferring to another program at york OR outside of york wouldn't be a hassle in terms of credit transfers. If I do not continue with science, I am gonna try to transfer to either Mcmaster, Queens, or Waterloo for commerce. The reason as to why I find it "better" to dismiss the Queens offer right now is cuz I am sure I would achieve a higher GPA easier at York than at Queens, and that is a big factor in PharmD and other professional school admissions. Not only that this coming year anyways I need my GPA to be as high as possible because even if I do not continue with science I will transfer either way, whether that be programs or unis. In addition to that Queens is really far from Waterloo or UofT, and since the uni u do ur pre requisites at dont matter I find it a waste to go all the way to Queens only to move again to Waterloo or Toronto after 2-3 years. What do you guys think? I still have till 11:59 pm tonight to decide. I am honestly just really pissed that I might turn down Queens offer cuz I already turned down Mcmaster's offer (for another program). this all happened cuz i didnt apply to enough programs, but anyways, is this is a good plan or nah? I would love to hear other opinions.

This summer I will move to another city to study in the university. This means that I will live far from home with a lot of new people. It sounds great for a lot of my peers but not for me. I actually feel anxious about this whole situation. I kinda understand why — it was always hard for me to leave my comfort zone and like live through major changes in my life so I would be very grateful for the advice on how to deal with leaving comfort zone

2023.06.09 00:12 DiscipulusDoctricis Emory vs WashU for the southeast

Emory cost of attendance - 158k (118k scholarship)
WashU cost of attendance - 169k (105k scholarship)
My goal is to work as a litigator at a top firm and I would like to clerk along the way. WashU places a larger percentage of graduates into big law and federal clerkships, but the overwhelming majority into the midwest and NYC and I am not interested in working in the midwest or NYC. I want to work in the deep south, texas, or florida. Likewise, WashU has an absolutely massive placement rate into federal clerkships, but I have no idea how much of that is caused by the school's name and network and how much is self selection. Not all clerkships are equally competitive: if the clerkship office has been encouraging students to mass apply to district courts in flyover states, of course they are going to have a relatively higher success rate.
I am an atlanta area native and I think I would far prefer living in atlanta for three years to St. Louis. Emory seems like a better "fit" for me. I love the southern LAC vibe and I have spoken to tons of students and alumni that I have really enjoyed. I quite like the idea of being able to build relationships in atlanta during law school

Trying to apply for student loans for the summer term, each time it says error within application. I’ve been trying for about a week now and have sent them an email and tried calling and nothing. I’ve tried on my phone and laptop and iPad and in incognito mode. Does anyone have any other trouble shooting ideas? I’m starting to panic I might need to submit a paper application which probably won’t get processed in time.

2023.06.09 00:11 Atyzze Echoing Einstein: A Timeless Perspective on Unity and Compassion

Greetings fellow travelers on this cosmic journey,
Today, let’s take a moment to reflect on a profound message from someone whose insights transcended the barriers of science and tapped into the philosophical essence of existence - Albert Einstein.
In 1949, Einstein penned a letter in which he gave voice to a sentiment that is both deeply human and strikingly universal:
“A human being is a part of the whole, called by us 'Universe,' a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
This perspective, astoundingly coherent with the concepts explored within #SnekSim, touches upon the interconnectedness of all life, the constraints of our perceptions, and the necessity to expand our compassions.
The element of Einstein’s insight that resonates with #SnekSim is the recognition that our individual experiences are fragments of a greater whole. The illusion of separation could be likened to the intricate code in the universal simulation. We are threads in an immeasurable tapestry.
Einstein also famously said:
“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”
This quote is a stark reminder of the destructive path we can take if we continue to view ourselves and others through the lens of separation and division. It reflects the grave consequences of failing to recognize our inherent interconnectedness.
At a time when technological advancements are rapidly changing the face of our societies, and when our actions hold the weight of affecting life across the globe, Einstein’s message from 1949 holds truer than ever.
It begs us to ponder, do we need calamities to remind us of the fundamental truth of our interconnected nature? Or can we, through active contemplation and striving, break free from the shackles of our ‘optical delusions’?
Let’s echo Einstein’s wisdom and make it a driving force in our pursuit of understanding and compassion. Whether through discussions here in #SnekSim or through our daily interactions, let’s work toward uniting as one, embracing the diversity of codes that make up this grand simulation.
We don’t need to reinvent the wheel of wisdom. Sometimes, we just need to listen to the echoes of the past.

2023.06.09 00:10 Taralouise52 Finally at peace

Ex-Best friend of 15 years/roommate finally got her boxed up shit out of the living room. I don't care that I have no living room furniture. Her stuff being moved out 2 months before the lease is up means I'm at PEACE for the next 2 months. Her bedroom is a mess and smells AWFUL. She graciously decided to clean nothing including the piss stain from her dogs crate because her dog would be kept in the crate for so long he'd pee himself. She's staying with her boyfriend until she moves to Florida and then (from what she told me when we were friends) is going to break up with him after she settles even though he helped move all that shit today. Everyone in my life is so sick of her and we can't wait til she's out of state.

2023.06.09 00:10 InvaderBatflight Things I Wish were Fleshed Out More

I've listened to nearly all the audiobooks in the series available on audible, and there are a few things which I really wish were either different or given more attention in the series.


#1 I wish Valkyrie's native AI was given the chance to become a character.
Bilby is cool and all, but I really really wish that the original Maxolhx AI inside of Valkyrie was allowed to become an actual character.
With the amount of plot and tension building up over the continued hostility of Valkyrie's native AI, and Skippy's suggestion to enable it to become more self aware as a method of potentially reasoning with it, I was anticipating the ship's AI to become a new character and foil to Skippy's arrogance towards non-Elder AIs. But that didn't happen. For whatever reason that I cannot fathom, the author decided to scrap that plot point entirely by literally killing Valkyrie's AI just after Simms had negotiated with it into a uncertain truce of sorts.
This was extremely disappointing, in my opinion.
#2 Captain Illiath deserves more.
As one of the few competent members of the Maxolhx species that isn't fanatically brain dead with their perceived manifest destiny, (which I swear has to be the result of some species-wide genetic modification gone too far in an effort to bio-engineer the ultimate alpha species with a psychologically ingrained disposition towards megalomania), I think Illiath as well as other members of the Maxolhx who were given little to no attention (such as that one who was an engineer on one of the main ships in the fleet that the merry band of pirates had stranded outside the galaxy) would be perfect for further understanding the Maxolhx and what their culture is actually like, after all, with billions and billions of them in many different colonies, it's unreasonable to think that every single one of the Maxolhx truly believe in the propaganda their government perpetuates.
Trips, or the Elder AI known as 003 (or was it 333? I don't know because they didn't live long enough to even matter!), was one of Skippy's peers and the only other non-hostile Elder AI we readers were given a glimpse of, and I was so excited for Trips to become part of the gang and see what new things they would bring to the table as an AI that is on par with Skippy in terms of raw power. I was waiting to see what another Elder AI would add to the whole dynamic of the merry band of pirates.
Then the Elder's pulled the plug and that hope was also quickly drowned in disappointment.
#4 The Elders should have kept out of it.
The Elders coming to intervene when an alert was finally received by them that something hinky was goin' on in ye ol' normal space time would have been an interesting and thrilling idea if it were executed better.
When we first discovered what the Elders physically looked like when the merry band of pirates discovered the body of an elder in a crashed elder starship, that was cool. The idea that the Elders were these huge, scary looking creatures with more animalistic features than the modern mostly humanoid star faring species was super intriguing.
Then when they returned it was like, the author forgot? and kind of made them out to be a bunch of old frail blowhards. Even though they went into why the process of de-ascending left them less than what they were, it was still very underwhelming.
Also the whole reason as to why they decided to Ascend was poorly justified.
I was expecting something like an Eldritch Horror of the cosmos was lurking outside the galaxy that was moving slowly yet inexorably to consume all known light in the observable universe was what made the Elders create the barrier, and when they realized that it would only be a matter of time before the barrier was eventually breached that they decided the only way to truly escape was to literally Ascend to another plain of reality entirely.
Instead we get the suggestion that something in another galaxy "might" have been a species whose technology was more advanced than the Elders'. Like, according to Skippy, the experiment conducted to contact the unknown entity outside the galaxy resulted in a sort of portal forming in which stuff began assembling itself without the Elders control and they panicked and blew it up.
Seems like a rather adverse reaction don't you think? What if they were just trying to set up a stable hub system in order to properly communicate with each other face to face in a safely controlled environment? Or maybe they were making a virtual reality simulator to face time with the Elders. We don't know! The Elders certainly didn't give off the impression that they knew either! (according to Skippy).

I don't know, the only reason I've stuck this long to this story is because of the genuinely fun moments that sometimes happen and R.C. Bray's vocal performance. I genuinely think that the author is either suffering from burn-out or are being pressured by their publishers to write more because of the amount of money the series is making. Maybe a combination of both.

2023.06.09 00:10 Chinalover33 [IWantOut] 20M Computer Engineering Student USA -> East Asia

Hello, I am currently studying computer engineering in the US, and I am about to start my final year of college this fall. I have studied abroad for a semester, and it has taught me that I don't really want to stay in the US after school. I don't like the US work culture and just don't feel like I fit in. Furthermore, I was born in China, but grew up in the US, so I don't remember anything about it. I think because of that, East Asian culture has always interested me more than Western culture, and I've always wanted to go to one and experience what it's like.
That's why I've looked into getting my master's degree abroad, but I am unsure of where I want to get it. I have thought about studying abroad to get it, and I have been looking at Asian universities in Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and others, but I don't know which country would be the best place to get one. The biggest one I've thought about is Hong Kong, but I think that area is having some problems right now so I would be happy to go to any East Asian country to be honest. My idea is that after going to a university, I would try to find a job in that country because I don't want to work in the US, but the only language I know is English.
I think there are a few other issues that have me thinking it may not be possible. One is the amount of money I would need. Hong Kong is quite expensive, so maybe other countries would be better and cheaper. Another issue I have is that I am unsure of whether my parents would let me study abroad. i think they want me to go to a university near my home and live at home, but I know I would hate doing that because I would just go to school and do nothing else in life.
Maybe this is an unrealistic goal for me, but any advice about this would be greatly appreciated!

2023.06.09 00:09 supersatan25 Can’t delete data on Link Between Worlds

I just received a copy of the game I ordered online. When I hit start I was presented with 3 seemingly blank files. It showed no hearts, no name, no rupees. However starting a file showed me in the lost woods with 13 hearts and 999 rupees. Also no weathervanes to quick travel to. I tried deleting a file and it just sat on the delete screen. And now Im trying to do a complete reset of the cartridge and that’s been going for about 30 min or so and I’m still waiting. Does anyone know what happened and if so what i can do? Is this maybe the result of using a GameShark or the like? I haven’t had any lucky with google

2023.06.09 00:09 Sweetpotato3000 Anyone in South Louisiana or Mississippi?

We are surrounded by red/Bible thumping breeders, but we left Nola and don't plan on going back. We are early/mid 30s, like video games, a light amount of anime, riding bikes, and traveling. I'm the one whos looking more for friends than my husband. I also like horses (have 2 and used to do low level jumping but now my gelding is a retired potato), amusement parks and thrills, DISNEY or Universal Studios, and hiking.

2023.06.09 00:08 IndustrialSpark Best place to keep tax return funds

Started out full time self employed in January, did some on the side in the last quarter of 2022 too. I have been keeping funds to cover my tax liability in a 'pot' within Mettle bank, which offers nothing special.
Currently I have a chunk of money there segregated as "last year's tax"which is the what my accountant has said it'll be without any reduction for expenses applied yet, or the % prepayment of the next tax bill. I'm due to sit down with my accountant soon and sort out the expenses I have on file and calculate what I need to pay after expenses etc, but even then I can hold these funds until January, and it seems like I should be putting them somewhere that it's working for me, rather than just enriching a bank.
I've seen some savings accounts and cash ISAs, but wondered if there was something else, or maybe a combination of accounts as next year I expect to have over 10k sat aside, and I see interest drops off over 10k in some accounts

2023.06.09 00:07 Master-Inflation-538 Hello everyone! 🇬🇮

I’m just about graduating my postgraduate course at Cambridge University, and I’ve never known anywhere like Gibraltar for feeling like home, you’re quite simply the best, friendliest folk I’ve ever met. I want to move there asap. I’m a masters student in Urban development, I’ll continue looking for jobs available, I just wanted to know of any tips for moving as a Brit, that I may need to know, and also whether, as someone with a Geordie accent, I may need to tone down my accent 😂 Looking forward to the move very much, there’s no denying Gibraltar is the best of British!

2023.06.09 00:07 CosmicTeapott Trying to find bigger MTB Goggles for slightly wider face/nose?

Hey, I'm going crazy trying to find a goggle that works for me. It's weird because I'm just 5'7" / 170cm always feel smaller than the average guy, I don't have a huge face or nose or anything (I swear). I'm trying to find the perfect fit, I'll be wearing them 100% of the time I ride and will be getting prescription inserts for them. Here's what I've tried so far: (Just skip if you want tldr of what I need). TLdr is that POCs are the best fit so far, I just struggle to breath through my nose slightly pinched in them, so if you have any recommendations of the largest fitting goggles like POCs but with more nose room to breath, please tell me!1 Leatt's new MTB Iriz goggle, it fits like a YOUTH size, edges hit my eyeball no matter how I sat it, nose slot seemed design for tiny adult/ child noses, so it sits on the middle of mine pinching it shut. I even emailed them that I'm shocked how tiny a goggle it is and that I'm not a freak, they said it was the first they've heard about a fit problem like this. Is their engineering and test team all gnomes? What the heck.
2 Smith Squad XL, this went 5% better. They have 1mm more room on the inside width wise, but still hit the sides of my eyes and no way they're staying perfectly adjusted on the trail. The nose has more room than Leatts, but still not enough. The package says XL and they looked big in pictures, but in my hand I swear they put normal squads in my box, they're still claustrophobic on my face vertically too. How can average people be bigger than me but keep designing goggles this small??
3 The best one I've tried so far has been POC Oras. They're almost a perfect fit for me minus one thing. If you want max lens and inside real estate get these. They're the largest goggles I've yet tried, my only issue is the nose is just slightly the wrong angle and I struggle to breath through my nose with these on. These would be the ones I keep while I hunt for better.
