Becoming acquainted with your heart. Two lessons in spirituality from Father Goat.
Good morning. It is I, Goat Bieber.

This is a quick trick I'm cooking up in my Uber.

This test has given us all severe tachycardia and heart arrhythmias, we can all agree on that.
We can't even look at this shit anymore

But can a heart attack while driving be... negligent? Read on to find out.

This is me every day driving to the courthouse
The MBE occasionally likes to test this scenario where someone is driving and they have a heart attack or stroke and pass out and kill a bunch of people.
The basic rule is this: If the person KNEW of their heart condition or tendency to have strokes and they still drove, they are negligent, since it is FORESEEABLE.
If they did NOT know of their heart condition or stroke and it was the FIRST TIME they had ever had one... it will not be negligent (you can't get in trouble for just having a random heart attack lmao).
So that is that...
If someone presents evidence that it was a first time heart attack and the other side can't refute it, they will win on a summary judgment motion.

Let's do one more trick

Let's talk hotels.

Picture I took from an underground room I stayed in at the Burj Khalifa this summer

I'm going to shoot you all straight: the MBE loves this one bullshit scenario of "full hotel" vs. "empty hotel" when talking about Res Ipsa Loquitur. Let's break it down gang.

Me and the Goat Gang hella pissed off at these tricks

The scenario is this: Sometimes a piano will fall out of a hotel full of guests and hit someone in the head.

Just like this

Scenario two: A piano falls out of a hotel... but the hotel has NO GUESTS.... only hotel workers.

This trick isn't bad, but it comes up almost every time and I wanted Goat Gang to re-hash it.
Thanks everyone.
I dedicate this post to QuizMasterLaw. I am sorry I had to ban him. His schizo ramblings were meaningful to all of us, and he had thousands of free e-Books. But in the final estimation of things... I realized he was a scammer from Senegal who had never taken the Bar Exam and was very possibly under the influence of crystal meth. May the brave souls at BarExam take care of him.

2023.06.10 19:12 KKshilling A Blueprint For Fulfillment & Sustainable Wealth [The Ikigai System]

A Blueprint For Fulfillment & Sustainable Wealth [The Ikigai System]
Discover How This Japanese Concept Can Revolutionize Your Life & Brand
In 2016, I was running a business that was running me into the ground. ​ I was working hard to please customers, my team and investors, and along the way… ​ ​I was sacrificing my health and well-being.
I was down and out, incredibly depressed, and using alcohol to cope with feelings of loneliness and despair.
I had just accepted that although I was unhappy, this was just how things went...
I didn’t know another way of doing things.
Then, I had a panic attack.
Cooped up in a hotel room in LA - I called my dad crying and I knew something needed to change.
There had to be a better way...
Fortunately, I found one.
Ikigai is an ancient Japanese philosophy that translates to "reason for being".
It lies at the intersection of four fundamental elements of life:
  • what you love
  • what the world needs
  • what you can be paid for
  • what you are good at

This sweet spot is the fuel that can drive you toward an energized and fulfilling life.
Discovering this personal paradigm is not only powerful...
But can also offer profound insights into how you can align your life and actions with your deepest values and aspirations.
If you've been following me for a while, you know I talk about Ikigai a lot.
This concept changed my life and it’s the heartbeat of everything I do.
And after years of living this way, I’ve never been happier or felt more fulfilled.
I believe it’s crucial for all founders to operate as much as possible within their Ikigai -
Because that will keep them fulfilled, and showing up even when things get tough.
In today’s newsletter, I want to share this life-changing concept with you, as well as a free resource you can use to identify your own.
And if you have already done an Ikigai exercise before, I have a question for you specifically down below, so make sure you check that out

#1 - Identifying What You Love

The first component of your Ikigai is identifying what you truly love.
This is an exploration of your passions, interests, and pursuits that genuinely excite you.
There are no rules around what you put here.
They could be anything from painting, designing software, traveling or cooking.
The only requirement is that these activities captivate your attention, make time disappear, and fill your heart with joy.
More than just hobbies, these are things that you would do even without getting paid or recognized for.

#2 - Understanding What the World Needs

The second element of your Ikigai is to think about what you believe the world needs.
This is where you look outside yourself and consider the larger societal needs.
This could include the environment, social justice, mental health awareness, technological advancement, and more.
But don’t just put “world peace.”
The idea here is to brainstorm from a perspective of your strengths, skills and passions.
You don’t have to come up with a “perfect answer,” the goal is to simply start putting to paper the various needs in the world.
Ultimately we’ll look to find the intersection of how what you love can help serve a bigger purpose.

#3 - Recognizing What You Can Be Paid For

The third component is determining what you can be paid for.
This is about identifying the skills, talents, and expertise that others value and are willing to pay for.
Don’t be afraid to get creative, as we’re trying to think outside the box.
However we also don’t want to pick something that’s so niche you end up creating a lot of stress for yourself trying to get people to buy from you.
One of my favorite ways to answer this is by asking “what do people ask me for help with?”
Some ideas that come to mind as I’m writing this are:
  • Consulting
  • Coaching
  • Developing digital products
  • Providing in-demand services
  • Closing deals
  • Copywriting
  • Design

#4 - Acknowledging What You Are Good At

The fourth and final component is acknowledging what you are genuinely good at.
I like to think of this as your “superpowers.”
What tasks or activities come naturally to you?
What skills do you have that you excel in without much effort?
What do people praise you for?
These can be inherent traits or acquired skills.
I encourage you to be bold and own your abilities - but also to be honest.
There’s a difference between your passions and your superpowers.
Don’t put “cooking” if you have a tendency to burn water.

#5 - Define Your Ikigai

Once you have thoroughly explored and documented the four components, it's time to define your Ikigai.
This step involves a lot of introspection, self-assessment, and often, trial and error.
You may find that some aspects of these components intersect naturally.
For instance, your love for storytelling and your exceptional writing skills could intersect in the realm of authoring books or blogging.
If the world needs more authentic, inspiring narratives and you can be paid for creating such content, this could very well be your Ikigai.
However, don't be disheartened if the intersections aren't clear right away.
Sometimes, the interconnections become apparent over time, and often, they may require proactive efforts to bridge the gaps. ​ This framework does not provide instant answers, but rather, it is a guiding principle that requires continuous reflection and fine-tuning.

#6 - Living Your Ikigai

Identifying your Ikigai is only half the battle…
The next step is living it.
It's about making conscious decisions that align with your Ikigai and incorporating it into your daily life.
This is where the concept of Ikigai transcends from being a self-reflective exercise to a guiding principle for life.
Living your Ikigai often involves making significant changes in your life.
You may need to shift careers, reorient your priorities, learn new skills, or even alter your lifestyle.
The beauty of Ikigai lies not only in the discovery of your unique "reason for being" but also in the journey of getting there.
It's about finding joy and satisfaction in the pursuit of balance, not just achieving it.
And remember, your Ikigai is not set in stone.
As you grow, evolve, and change, so too might your Ikigai.
It is meant to be a dynamic guide that grows and evolves with you, helping you live a life full of purpose and passion.
This leads me to the question I mentioned early…
Are you living out your Ikigai?

2023.06.10 19:12 dreftzg [Breaking News] Rolex Releases New Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 126529LN, With Paul Newman-Inspired Dial

[Breaking News] Rolex Releases New Rolex Cosmograph Daytona 126529LN, With Paul Newman-Inspired Dial
Hi folks! You might know me as the guy that does the daily news updates. But every now and again breaking news pops up that messes with my weekly schedule. So, here's a quick update until Monday:
Rolex Releases New Cosmograph Daytona 126529LN, With Paul Newman-Inspired Dial
This year marks the 60th anniversary of the Rolex Cosmograph Daytona, a model that the brand already updated at Watches and Wonders earlier in the year. But it also marks the 100th anniversary of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. So, in an extremely unusual move for Rolex, today, as the legendary race starts, they announced a new, original, edition of the Daytona. The new reference 126529LN is special on many levels… To name just one factor, it brings back some details of an iconic and highly-desirable “exotic” dial of the past (mostly the counters), also known as the Paul Newman dial.
The new watch comes in a 18k white gold redesigned 40mm case, using the new ceramic bezel framed in a thin band of white gold. The case retains the screw down crown and pushers, just like the sapphire crystal. Oh, and guess what - the caseback has a sapphire crystal, just like the platinum edition, and it reveals the Calibre 4132.
All of that is nice, but the dial is where it's at. It comes in the panda style with unique sub-counters so well known from the Paul Newman dial, with distinctive square-shaped markers and tracks. Also, another specificity of this new edition of the Cosmograph Daytona, it features a slightly different display, as the chronograph features a 24-hour counter at 9 o’clock, instead of the regular 12-hour counter. Of course, a nod to the legendary race and the title of Rolex as official timing partner and main sponsor since 2001.
The new Rolex Oyster Perpetual Cosmograph Daytona 126529LN is released as a non limited edition that will be added to the permanent collection. The price will be EUR 42,407 (excl. taxes)
More on this later on, with the regular news updates!

However, there is absolutely no need for you to subscribe, as all the news from the newsletter is posted here.

My new Hello! Good Smile figures of Joker, Panther, and Morgana came and I'm honestly impressed, they look really good in person and shockingly big ( compared with their Nendoroid counterpart) and I really like them and for $12 a piece minus shipping I would say they're a great alternative if you're on a budget. I hope they make more!

2023.06.10 19:11 sunnyceee What type of sales content are you interested in reading?

I've been in tech sales for 6+ years now, and all of the media/content that people put out seems to be the same boring stuff.
Marketing people seem to have a ton of content/blogs/youtube channel content, but sales seem to be talked about much less. Because of that, I'm building the best newsletter for B2B salespeople that actually has entertaining content that sales reps want to read.
Things like "What does a CRO actually do" or "Which company has the best sales team". But coming up with exciting new ideas for B2B content can be tough. Any ideas on what type of topics would be good to cover?

2023.06.10 19:11 mishaxz Resources... no idea how to manipulate, deploy, etc. ("deal with") them

I need to understand what a resource is. I'm not sure if it is a C++ concept, a Windows concept or a VS concept.. or a combination of those
A good video on the subject (not from a conference those tend to be too long on programming subjects) would be appreciated.
I use VS 2022 c++20 msvc 19
The immediate problem I have right now is that I have a console application and I have made a resource
I want to be able to load this file so that I can shellExecute it from my debug or release builds.
But I'm lost where to start.
Also I have no installer for my project, neither do I have plans for one.
In general I have a decent grasp of C++.. I am somewhere on the low or mid-intermediate level for most things. Some areas I'm not really good at all, like concepts/requires. This "resource" files area I have not yet explored though. I do most of my learning on the fly while I work on my projects.

Hi all. I'm new to the game, and would someone be able to give me a list of good openers? I plan to stick to the Lock-in builder for now, and once I'm comfortable with 7-8 openers, I will move on to the other builders.
Right now, I'm good with Yozora and will move on to the Antler next.

2023.06.10 19:10 reputationgua Reputation Guards: Protect Your Brand from Negative Content

Protecting your brand from negative content can be a daunting task, but it is essential to maintain the positive image you have built. Reputation Guards provides to help you monitor what people are saying about your company or brand online and safeguard against potential threats. We offer two options for the complete and permanent removal of any unwanted content: de-indexing from Google or removing the content itself. Our team will assess the situation and advise on the best strategy for full protection against future attacks so that your reputation remains intact.

Reputation Guards On Understanding the sources of negative Content

Negative content can come from a variety of sources, such as disgruntled customers, rivals and competitors, or even malicious actors. It is important to understand the source of the negative content to better address it.
Customers may leave negative reviews due to a bad experience with your product or service, or because they’re disappointed with how you handled their complaint. Competitors may attempt to harm your reputation by spreading false information about your company or sabotaging your efforts. And malicious actors could be attempting to defame your business with damaging posts and slanderous remarks.
Identifying the source of the negative content can be challenging, especially if the content has been posted anonymously. However, with the help of an experienced reputation guard team like Reputation Guards, it is possible to track down the originator of unwanted content and take appropriate measures for damage control. Our team utilizes advanced online tools and resources to uncover the identity behind negative posts and assess any associated risks. We also specialize in finding ways to mitigate any potential damage caused by the negativity on a brand's overall reputation.

Monitor your online presence regularly

Monitoring your online presence regularly is key to protecting your brand from negative content. It is important to stay on top of what people are saying about you and your business and make sure that any potential threats are quickly identified. Reputation-guards offers proactive services that enable you to monitor conversations, reviews, and other types of content associated with your brand across a variety of platforms. This allows our team to detect any harmful content before it has a chance to spread or cause damage.
We use sophisticated tools and algorithms to analyze large amounts of data in real time so that we can identify any potentially dangerous posts quickly. We also utilize advanced search capabilities on social media platforms such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, as well as traditional search engines like Google and Bing. This allows us to find even the most obscure content about your company or brand for effective proactive monitoring.
If any potentially damaging posts are flagged by our system, we take immediate action by contacting the original poster and asking them to remove the content or take corrective measures if necessary. We also document all interactions in case further legal action needs to be taken at a later date. This proactive strategy helps ensure that negative content is removed before it gains traction and causes irreparable damage to your reputation.

Develop a strategy to respond quickly and effectively to negative content

Developing a strategy to respond quickly and effectively to negative content is essential for preserving your online reputation. To do this, you must first identify the source of the negative content and assess any associated risks. Once the source has been identified, it is important to develop a plan of action that helps you respond quickly and decisively.
One way to do this is by crafting a well-thought-out response that appropriately addresses the issue. You should take into consideration the tone of voice used in your response, as well as whether or not you are addressing the original poster directly or publicly. When responding publicly it is important to be succinct and professional, making sure that all relevant facts are included without appearing overly defensive or argumentative. It is also important to remain respectful and show empathy towards those affected by the negative content.
Another key part of responding quickly and effectively to negative content involves being proactive in preventing it from happening again in the future. This can be accomplished by developing a set of guidelines for customer interactions, implementing clear policies for dealing with complaints, and setting up systems for monitoring reviews and comments on social media platforms. Additionally, having safeguards in place such as using automated moderation tools can help detect any potentially damaging posts before they have time to spread online.
Finally, it is important to remember that maintaining an online reputation requires ongoing effort. By staying on top of what people are saying about your business, monitoring any potential threats, proactively addressing issues when they arise, and setting up preventive measures against future attacks – you can ensure that your brand remains protected from unwanted negativity and stands strong against any potential threats.

Utilize reputation guards to protect your brand from future attacks offers comprehensive services that provide you with the tools and strategies needed to protect your brand from future attacks. Our team of experts is equipped to create a customized plan of defence that can be tailored to meet the unique needs of your company or brand.
By utilizing reputation guards, you will be able to quickly identify any attempts to tarnish your online presence, such as negative reviews or comments on social media, false accusations, and other malicious content. Our team can then develop an effective strategy for addressing these threats so that they don't spread across the web and damage your reputation further.
Additionally, our proactive monitoring solutions enable us to detect any harmful content before it has a chance to go viral. We use sophisticated tools and algorithms to analyze large amounts of data in real-time to identify potentially damaging posts quickly. This way we can find even the most obscure content related to your business or brand and take immediate action by contacting the original poster and asking them to remove it if necessary.
Furthermore, our team of experts will provide you with guidance on how best to respond should any negative content arise in the future. We can help you craft a well-thought-out response that appropriately addresses the issue while remaining professional at all times – regardless if you are responding publicly or directly with the original poster. We also document all interactions in case further legal action needs to be taken at a later date.
Finally, we can also recommend preventive measures that can be put into place for long-term protection against future attacks – such as developing guidelines for customer interactions, implementing clear policies for dealing with complaints, setting up systems for monitoring reviews and comments on social media platforms, and using automated moderation tools. With Reputation Guards on your side, you can rest assured knowing that your online presence is in safe hands!

Counteract the negativity associated with your brand name

Creating positive content is essential for countering any negative content associated with your brand name. It can help to distract from the negativity and give customers a more balanced picture of your business or product. Positive content should be crafted in such a way that it provides valuable information while also highlighting what makes your company or product unique.
One way to create positive content is to focus on customer stories and testimonials. Highlighting real-life stories about how customers have had positive experiences with your product or service can convince other potential customers that you are worth the investment. Additionally, customer reviews left on third-party websites like Google My Business, Yelp, and Trip Advisor can also help counteract negativity as they provide an unbiased opinion from those who have used your products or services.
Furthermore, engaging in charitable initiatives that showcase the good work you do in the community can also help create a more favourable image of your brand. Whether it’s providing support for local causes or donating a portion of profits to charity, these types of activities demonstrate a commitment to giving back and will make customers more likely to invest in your business.
Another great way to create positive content is through influencer marketing collaborations. By partnering with influential people within your industry or niche, you can gain access to their audiences and spread the word about what makes your company special – all while generating buzz around the product or service you offer.
Finally, staying active on social media can help cultivate a more positive reputation for your brand as well as boost its visibility online. Posting regular updates that show off new products and services, highlight customer stories, share news about promotions and discounts, interact with followers, and respond quickly to any complaints or inquiries ensures that customers stay engaged with your business even when there isn't any negative press surrounding it.

Engage customers and build relationships with them

Social media platforms are powerful tools for businesses to engage with customers and build relationships with them. Utilizing platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube can help create a more direct connection between your business and potential customers. Customers will be able to connect with your brand in real-time and get an immediate response to their inquiries or requests.
Posting regular updates that share information about new products or services, highlighting customer stories, or providing tips on how to use your product will help establish trust and loyalty among consumers. Additionally, engaging in conversations with followers by responding promptly to comments and messages will demonstrate that you value their input and feedback.
Furthermore, social media platforms are great for providing exclusive discounts and promotions which can increase engagement from potential customers. Creating contests or giveaways can also help generate more interest in your brand while gaining valuable insights into which products people prefer or what issues they may be having with any of your offerings.
Moreover, social media networks are ideal for connecting with influencers who can help spread the word about your brand while reaching out to a wider audience. Collaborations with respected figures in the industry or niche can generate more awareness among potential customers – thus leading to increased sales and revenue.
Finally, taking advantage of free analytics tools offered by social media networks can provide valuable insights into customer behaviour which can then be used to better tailor content to specific audiences. For example, understanding which posts perform best gives you an idea of what topics resonate more with followers, allowing you to create more effective content that resonates better with them.
By employing smart strategies on social media platforms, businesses have the opportunity to engage customers on a deeper level while building relationships rooted in trust and loyalty – leading to increased conversions and ultimately greater success!

Considering an online reputation management company

Considering an online reputation management company for more comprehensive protection is an excellent way to protect one's brand or company from potential negative publicity. A reputable firm can provide a range of services that help to safeguard a business's online presence, including monitoring and analyzing both traditional and digital media sources for any mentions of the business, its products, its services, and its staff.
Such firms also conduct proactive measures to ensure any potentially damaging information is quickly removed or corrected before it can spread further. To maintain a positive online image, they employ a variety of tactics such as content curation, optimized search engine results management (SERM), social media campaigns, pay-per-click advertising, and even website design or re-design services.
One benefit of using an online reputation management service is that the team can review all aspects of the client’s digital footprint to identify high-risk areas where competitors may be trying to damage their reputation. They can then develop strategies aimed at boosting positive press coverage while simultaneously diminishing any negative press.
Additionally, these companies monitor various social media platforms so they can quickly identify and respond to any unfavourable comments or reviews to mitigate any potential damage they could cause. This helps ensure that customers remain engaged with the business while providing them with prompt responses if they have any questions or issues with the product or service they are receiving.
Moreover, many online reputation management firms now offer analytics tools which allow businesses to track their progress over time and make informed decisions about how best to shape their future marketing efforts to maximize returns on investment (ROI). Knowing exactly how successful each campaign has been in terms of reach and visibility makes it easier for businesses to plan for future promotions and initiatives.

2023.06.10 19:09 throwawaybetty123 I (21f) don’t know what to do about my wife (28f) and our relationship

So my wife and I got together when I was 18, we used to work together and has been friends for a while. The start of our relationship was euphoric, she was my first female relationship and I fell hard and fast for her. We married just a few days before I turned 20 and my mental health started to dip really badly around that time. I’d like to note that this was nothing to do with our relationship, I had suffered a bereavement about 9 months prior and I didn’t realise how much I was struggling until a month or so after the wedding.
I tried to commit suicide, which obviously failed, as my wife found me overdosed and called an ambulance. My mental health continued to decline at a rapid rate and my wife convinced me to take time off of work and take some time to heal. This time off was for a few weeks initially but then I started to feel guilty and although she said the right things, it didn’t feel like she was genuinely supportive of me and was disappointed in me. Now, it’s important to note that I’m aware that this could be my mental health talking.
So I went back to work, started a new job and I became good friends with a colleague. She made me feel incredibly guilty for talking to him, to the point that I actually left that job. My mental health plummeted, I tried to commit suicide again and I was out of work again for 8 months. Anytime I spoke to this guy, she’d make me feel awful. She did this to a point that I actually changed my phone number and cut all contact off. There was absolutely nothing indecent or suggestive in our conversations.
In the past month, I tried to kill myself whilst my wife was away but she called the police for a wellness check and they cut me down. I’m at the darkest point I’ve ever been, feeling completely isolated and I don’t know what to do. I recently started a new job which is taking all of my energy. I really want this to work out because it’s a very good opportunity but it’s very hard when I’m battling so bad with my mental health. I take diazepam daily, take antidepressants as well as anxiety medication. My wife always act’s disappointed in me, I’ve explained that I’m trying my very best and I’ve tried to be as open as I can about how I’m struggling. She makes me feel guilty for talking to people at work and for going to work but I feel like there’s no winning because she also made m feel guilty for not working.
I guess I’m just asking for advice really, what would you do if you were in this situation?
Also, yes, I’ve told her how I feel and that I’m trying my absolute best.

2023.06.10 19:09 dislocated_day0 26M - let’s talk about life, music, and video games shall we? 😌

Hi! My name’s Alec, I’m 26, and from the great state of Pennsylvania. I’m currently looking to make some new friends and see what happens on here.
A little bit about me: I’m a gamer. I own a gaming PC, PS5, Nintendo Switch, & Xbox Series X. I play a good majority of everything from Fortnite, Doom, Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, etc.
I’m a musician. I play drums and guitar. I happen to be in a band as well so be sure to ask all about it! I love all types of music. I mostly lean towards rock & metal (Slipknot, Metallica, Trivium, Glassjaw, etc.) but I do like some grunge & alternative (Radiohead, The Cure, Alice In Chains, Soundgarden). My musical tastes are all over the place so I’m sure we can find some common ground!
If you’d like to shoot a DM, please do! I’ll be looking forward to it 😌

2023.06.10 19:09 asd8dhd The Secrets of Interstellar and Interplanetary Travel

I almost didn’t post this. Not because I think it’s too wild or doesn’t make any sense. In fact, quite the opposite. The information I present here, which is the result of countless hours spent re-watching videos, listening to audio, and cross-referencing official information, is something that now seems to me to be far too viable not to be correct. I have actually tried to prove this theory wrong and… well basically I can’t. So, please bear this in mind as you read. This could end up being one of those rare occasions when we’re actually onto something. Either way, I hope you enjoy the post.
First point; this is going to be a long post. Given the subject matter, it needs to be. Second point; I have not added any images or videos directly into the post but have instead included a great many links embedded within the text itself. This should ensure that the post is no longer than it needs to be but should still allow you sufficient opportunity to fully scrutinize every part of my theory, so that you can determine for yourself whether or not you think it holds weight.
I have organised all of the information under specific headings designed to make everything more accessible. Each section focuses on a particular aspect of the main theory. Even if you think that some of what you are reading may not be relevant, I can assure you that everything written here has been included as an important part of a much larger puzzle, and so I would advise that you patiently make your way through the entirety of the post. In an effort to ensure that your time invested here is appropriately rewarded, and in the spirit of preserving the scientific method, I have tried to keep flavor text and blind speculation down to an absolute minimum.
Note that I will be listing various aspects of this post as being confirmed correct or incorrect as and when we have official information to verify such facts. So here we are, after five long years of waiting, the inevitable release of Starfield, like the event horizon of some nearby black hole, is almost upon us. With the Showcase now a mere 24 hours away, it is time for us to take a look at what makes this particular game so special, as well as discovering just how we will be given the means to fly among the stars.
And so, without further ado, let us begin.
Hitchhiker's Guide
From watching gameplay footage, and also listening to various devs talk about Starfield, we know that at some along the early part of the story, we will find ourselves on board a Constellation Starship, which is appropriately named Frontier. With us on the ship is VASCO, an adorable robot assistant who will eventually become one of our possible companions. But how did we even end up on this ship? Well firstly, I do not believe that Frontier is our ship, or at least not at first. And so, we’re probably here in the capacity of a ‘guest’ of some kind, or more likely, a hitchhiker.
If we take a look at this scene, we first hear a male shouting “that’s the Crimson Fleet! and then a female saying “Everybody get ready!” After this, we can see that the group we are with is attacked. We already know that we uncover some kind of unknown artifact whilst mining for ore near the beginning of the Main Quest, and that the aforementioned Crimson Fleet is essentially an organised collective of space pirates. But what we don’t know is why they attacked us. This is not something I will be diving into in this particular post, although I do have some theories about this. But the relevance of the series of events here described cannot be understated, as they seem to be the launching point for our entry into Constellation and the adventures that follow.
Next, if we look a little further, we can see that this seemingly-important member of Constellation is not with us when we arrive at their Headquarters on Jemison, which suggests that he may have been killed during the above mentioned attack. Also note that, in-spite of not having a voiced protagonist this time round, we can clearly hear somebody talking over Frontier’s comms system, which means that there must be a designated pilot. Given the fact that we don’t see anyone who is confirmed as being the pilot (although it may actually be this person), it is safe to assume that this designated individual was with us during the flight but was first injured in the attack on the planet’s surface and was then taken to Medical Bay after we successfully land on Jemison.
It is my belief that, after perhaps being exposed to some kind of energy pulse from a grenade or something similar, the first member of Constellation we see was outright killed (hence why we are then asked to join up ourselves, perhaps to take over his role). The pilot, however, clearly survived as we can hear him talking to Control over the comms system during what is actually an extended two-way conversation, but I think that his vision was somehow compromised so that, even though he is able to speak, he is temporarily unable to see. The good news about this most unfortunate situation is that it opens the door for us to quickly step into the hot seat and, with the pilot acting as our guide, we will experience our very first Starfield flight tutorial.
Radio Chatter
If you listen to the beginning of both the Official Teaser Trailer and Official Gameplay Reveal for Starfield, you will hear both halves of the radio conversation I have referenced above, or at least the parts of it that Bethesda have given us so far. The first of these is spoken by somebody being referred to as Control, and the second by Frontier’s pilot. I previously posted a link to an audio I made and put up on Soundcloud, which gives us all of the confirmed parts of this conversation carefully spliced together and enhanced for clarity. Note that some of the audio, despite these enhancements, is a little hard to make out.
The final, in-game conversation is going to be a fair bit longer than what we have here and will be based on the specific processes that are required before attempting a Grav Jump. I don’t think we will hear this conversation every time we perform a Jump (especially given that our protagonist does not speak), but the first time we experience this early step-out moment, a detailed and appropriate pre-launch conversation will only serve to enhance what I’m sure will be an awe-inspiring experience.
Note that, at the end of this post, I have provided a link to a written transcript detailing what I think is being said in the full version of the above conversation. In the meantime, here is a breakdown of the confirmed parts of this audio. This is slightly different from the version I previously posted, due to new evidence clarifying exactly what is being said here. I have left line-spaces to help show where the missing parts of the audio will eventually go:
PILOT: "Control this is Constellation Starship Frontier."
CONTROL: "Constellation Starship Frontier, we have you on scanners."
PILOT: "We're ready to start on your signal."
CONTROL: "Performing Road Systems check. Helium-3 tanks, check. Seals are intact."
PILOT: "Maintaining Exit Vector course, Steady 'till Ready."
CONTROL: "We are still go."
PILOT: "Coordinates input, plotting Jump course."
CONTROL: "We read you Constellation."
PILOT: "Sky-Bus is converged, we're looking good."
CONTROL: "Jemison route looks good."
PILOT: "Allocating Auxiliary Reactor Power."
CONTROL: "Prepare for departure. Graviton Loop Array Spool, check."
PILOT: "System checks are green across the board."
CONTROL: "Your space Lane is clear."
PILOT: "Grav Jump commencing in 5, 4, 3, 2, 1."
At first, this seems like a typical, albeit futuristic version of an Air Traffic Control conversation. After all, much of what is being said does sound very familiar, and the rest seems appropriate to Starfield’s apparent Hard Science Fiction theme. But it’s only when you start digging a little deeper that you realize that something else is going on here as well.
Note the following terms taken from the above transcript: Road, Exit, Course, Coordinates, Bus, Route, Departure and Lane. All these words share a very noticeable common theme. They are all in some way related to Road Networks. Note also the phrase “green across the board," which sounds like it could also be a reference to Traffic Lights.
Zooming Along
Next, let’s look at this map, which features the home of a certain Software Development Company you may have heard of. If you zoom out a fair bit, you will see two large Cities, namely Washington and Baltimore. Zoom out a little more, and you can now see the cities of Richmond to the South and Pittsburgh to the North-West. Zoom back in over any of these four major cities, and you will see that there are many more smaller locations within each of the city limits.
Now scroll the map over to any of the areas outside of these cities, and you will find a multitude of other important locations. These include residential areas, airports, medical facilities, sports and leisure facilities, research facilities, manufacturing facilities, tech companies, supermarkets), hotels, places of worship, and many others. All the above locations are important in one way of another to the continued functioning of our society, and all can be placed within two distinct categories. These are Population Centers and Infrastructure.
You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat
Now imagine that there has been some kind of catastrophic flood in this area, and all these locations, although somehow miraculously intact, are now separated from each other as a series of individual islands in the middle of a newly formed ‘ocean’. Suddenly, the existing Road Network, along with any cars, busses, and other road vehicles, would become useless. You would need to use a completely different system, one designed to properly accommodate these changes, which would of course have to incorporate such elements as harbors, shipping routes, and vehicles capable of travelling along a waterway.
Now let’s zoom out again, this time further. Much, much, further. Each location has now been transformed into either a planet or a moon, spread across various star systems covering a vast region of space. Each one of these planets and moons will have its own individual features, resources, possible inhabitants, and infrastructure requirements. With such a quantum leap in terms of scale, if we now wanted to travel between these locations, which could in many cases end up being several light years apart, we are going to need something far bigger in terms of scale, complexity, and technology.
Shown In 60 Seconds
During the first ever 60 seconds of Starfield footage we all saw, shown in the form of the Official Announcement Teaser at the end of BE3 on June 11th 2018 (which redditor InToddWeTrust2023 has very nicely referenced here), we were given some surprisingly important clues which now form the cornerstone of this theory. Not only have these clues stacked up with every consecutive trailer released, as well as many of the other official videos and various other snippets of information, but their sheer level of consistency places them well outside the realm of possible coincidence.
Some of these additional clues were given to us in the two videos referenced above which contain the comms audio. The second of these two videos, namely the Official Gameplay Reveal, dropped, as would be expected, at the end of last year’s Showcase on June 12th 2022. Some of the most crucial information we have been given to date regarding my theory is actually contained in the 70 seconds shown before Todd even begins to speak. We will discuss the relevance of all of this a little further on in the post.
Lo-go/no go
First, some Space related terminology. In Mission Control speak, a Launch Status Check, also known as a go/no go poll, is part of a very carefully designed system implemented by US Space Agencies to ensure maximum safety and the best possible survival chance of both the ship and its crew prior to launch. This, or something similar, will undoubtedly form an integral part of the pre-launch, or rather, pre-Jump procedures incorporated into Starfield, especially given what we know in relation to its specific influences, attention to detail, and focus on realism.
But let's look for a moment at a different type of launch. Let's look at the process of carefully managing the flow of information when you are launching a long-awaited, multi-million-dollar triple-A video game and you happen to be a major player. With the combined might of Bethesda, Zenimax, and now Microsoft, there is clearly a great deal of scope in terms of how they were able to execute all of the steps involved in this process. One critically important factor, and one that has been masterfully implemented in the promotion of Starfield, is the use of familiar iconography.
If we look at the iconography seen during the promotion of Starfield, we can see that there are two main elements. These are the circular Starfield logo, first unveiled in 2018, and of course the recently updated Bethesda Games Studios logo, which has existed in various iterations since around 2006. Both of these share a common, simplistic yet effective design, and the BGS logo in particular is now light years ahead of its original design as seen on box art and in promotional materials for The Elder Scrolls VI Oblivion. At the time of Oblivion’s release, the long-term use of this particular logo, which incorporates the now familiar Fallout Vault Door, was a little uncertain due to restrictions with the associated licence (more on this below). But once this matter had been resolved, it would make a lot of sense that they would then develop this logo into the much sharper, more modern version we see today.
Licenced to Fly
Way back in April of 2007, Bethesda realized one of their biggest long-term business goals by finally securing the full rights to the highly acclaimed Fallout series. Prior to this, in 2004, they had been granted limited rights which would allow them to develop Fallout 3 and then two additional games, but they clearly wanted full and unrestricted access to the franchise and all of its assets. Since this time, in addition to Fallout 3, we have seen the release of Fallout New Vegas, Fallout 4, and Fallout 76, as well as a number of smaller projects, including Fallout Shelter. This is all the proof you need to confirm the fact that, in-spite of some initial setbacks, Bethesda’s insistence on going the extra mile with regards to securing the full franchise, was most definitely worth it, and was seen by many as a landmark achievement.
Looking at the most recent entry to this ever-expanding series, namely Fallout 76, I would like to draw your attention to two of this particular game’s trailers. First, we have the Fallout 76 Official Trailer from 2018, and then The Pitt Story Trailer from 2022. In the first of these two trailers, at around the 35 second mark, we see the new BGS logo once again, and then near the end of the video we see a smaller version, neatly tucked away over on the left-hand side of the usual copyright notice. If we then look at the second trailer, at around… Hold on a second, let me rewind that a bit… wait, what?
This is where things start to get really interesting.
One Small Step
Okay, going back to the Fallout 76 trailers, although the smaller version of the BGS logo can be seen at or near the end of each of these, only the first incorporates the larger, ‘splash-screen’ version. “But why is this even important?” you may ask. “They may have simply forgotten to include this detail in the second trailer.” I can assure you that this is most certainly not the case. In fact, I am one-hundred-percent confident that this was quite intentional. I would even go as far as saying that this one, seemingly insignificant detail, actually brings us a step closer to unlocking the secrets of Starfield. Essentially, Bethesda have taken full advantage of how we all think we remember certain details, and as such, this is an example of truly expert-level hidden marketing on their part. I also believe it will form the basis of at least one of the big reveals during the showcase.
One Giant Leap
Let’s go back one more time to the Announcement Teaser and the Gameplay Reveal for Starfield. Look at how drastically different the BGS logo is in both of these videos compared to any of those used in promoting Fallout 76. What will really blow your mind here is the fact that all four of the trailers mentioned above were first shown to us during the same two Showcases we have just been discussing! In other words, the first of these videos for both Fallout 76 and Starfield were both unveiled at the 2018 Showcase, and the second of each at the 2022 Showcase. And yet each respective pair make use of drastically different versions of what we all thought was the exact same logo. This means that Starfield has been designed, from the ground up, to be viewed and experienced in a totally different way than, and completely separate from, any of Bethesda’s previous titles.
To clarify this point, after extensive research, I can confirm that this new, animated BGS logo, with the vault door rolling off to the left and then ‘opening up’ just before the text appears, has never been featured anywhere in an official capacity that is not directly related to Starfield. It is completely unique to this specific IP. This fact ties together everything we have looked at in the post so far. It also lets us see things from a completely different ‘orbital’ perspective. For example, I believe that this information gives us the real reason why Bethesda worked so hard to secure the full rights to the Fallout franchise in the way that they did. Not only did they wish to create awesome games set within the Fallout universe, but they also needed total freedom to make use of a specific part of this franchise that so that they could then incorporate it into their next, very very big, space related IP.
For Mankind
Okay. This is the part you’ve all been waiting so patiently for. This is the big reveal. For months now, perhaps even years, we have all been drip-fed the idea that Starfield is essentially “Skyrim in Space.” The reason I think that we have been told this is to misdirect us away from an intrinsic, interwoven connection between Starfield and Bethesda’s other major franchise, which is of course Fallout. But just to put your mind at rest, I do not for a nanosecond believe that the reveal will be, “We fooled you all, it’s actually Fallout in space!” no matter how cool that might at first sound.
What I do believe is that Starfield will be so different and so unique when viewed alongside anything else that Bethesda have published, that it will quite literally take your breath away. This game, the spark of which was first ignited 25 years ago, is Todd Howard’s true passion project. Everything else was simply the path he took to finally get here. This is the story he has always wanted to tell, the story of Mankind’s true legacy. And it all starts, just as it did when Interplay released the original Fallout) game back in 1997, with a familiar, but staggeringly different Vault Door.
The Vault
There is a very special and completely unique hidden Vault in Starfield. Not only is this particular Vault unlike anything you have previously seen anywhere within the Fallout universe, but it is also unlike anything you have seen in any game. Period.
This hidden Vault is actually the key to both interstellar and interplanetary travel. And it also happens to be the single biggest construction project in human history, extending across a span of almost one-hundred light years. And it is not even close to being completed, even after more than two-hundred years of construction.
This Vault is, by its very nature, completely invisible and shielded away from view. It is quite literally hidden in plain sight, and it can only be accessed through one of its specially crafted Vault Doors. But what does all of this mean for gameplay, and how does something like this even work? I’m glad you asked! Let’s strap in and prepare for launch, because we’re all in for an incredible ride.
Welcome, ladies and gentlemen... to The Starfield
Entering The Starfield
The following is my own interpretation, based on scientific reasoning and a huge amount of detailed analysis, of exactly how I think this system works. It is, as ever, backed up with several links throughout, as well as additional evidence for which I shall provide a separate link at end of the post. I am expecting perhaps some differences in terms of specific details once we get hold of the final release of Starfield, but I am confident that I am at the very least well within the ballpark with all of this. Okay, here goes.
The Science Behind the Magic
Starfield is the name given to a vast network of interconnecting tunnels, spanning the entirety of the Settled Systems, providing us with a very fast and highly practical means of travelling between different planets, and even different star systems. These tunnels exist within a localized, folded state, known as Tunnel-Space. The construction of the Starfield is made possible thanks to a technological breakthrough which allows gravitational waves (or Gravitons) to be woven together to form something known as a Gravity-Tunnel, which is then stretched out and connected between any two existing stellar objects, such as two planets in a given system, of even two stars from different systems.
In order to maintain the integrity of each tunnel, it is wrapped in a special type of Exotic Matter known as Superfluid Helium. This has a number of highly unusual properties, including negative energy density and negative energy pressure. This essentially makes it the physical-space equivalent of time going in reverse, meaning that it is capable of counteracting the effects of any conventional physical force, including the gravitational pull of a black hole. As such, it will hold the structure of the Gravity-Tunnel together for an indefinite period of time over a potentially infinite distance through space.
Within the Starfield are a large number of Nodes and Junction Points. Nodes are used to connect together all of the planets in any one Star System, and Junction Points then connect different Star Systems together, making use of much larger Gravity-Tunnels that are the equivalent of Interstate Highways. Note that all flight between any given planet and any or all of its moons is handled locally, outside of the Starfield.
Because all of the stars, planets, and moons in the Settled Systems are in a constant state of flux, by which I mean their relative distance and positions) are constantly changing in respect to each other, the tunnels within the Starfield have been designed to be able to expand and contract almost infinitely so that they can accommodate any changes in these two factors depending on when, where, and how you travel.
Although the main tunnels are designed to transport people, resources, waste, and other items directly relating to either Population Centers or Infrastructure, I believe there is also a sub-system) that will allow much smaller objects, such as probes, to carry data-packets that can be upload at one location and then downloaded at another, effectively solving the problem of inoperable delays in communication between remote locations.
Inside of each Gravity-Tunnel is a bi-directional singularity, which can be switched between two opposite polarities whenever required with the help of the surrounding Exotic Matter, allowing for two-way traffic inside what is essentially a one-way system. This means that, as long as you are able to ensure the correct polarity of all connecting Nodes and Junction Points along your route (as in “Sky-Bus is converged” and “Jemison route looks good”), you will be able to travel, in theory at least, from any point A to any point B, as long as all of the required interconnections exist within the system.
When travelling through the Starfield, you will set a specific route, known as a Sky-Bus, which is a specified pathway that runs from your staring location to your destination. You will then, with the help of Starfield Control, access the tunnels using a Gating System which I will explain below. Incidentally, I believe that the accepted in-universe name for the actual transit network that we are making use of within the Starfield is the Sky-Bus Tunnel System.
Each tunnel in this system actually has two separate ‘Lanes’, one on the left for outbound traffic, and one on the right for incoming traffic. As I have explained above, each of these tunnels can only accommodate a single direction of traffic flow at any given time. And so, a safety measure had to be incorporated to prevent any accidental attempts to travel the wrong way down a tunnel and destroying yourself and your ship.
At each end of any given Node or Junction Point is a Gate. These are the ‘Vault Doors’ I have been referring to. The Gate comprises of a gigantic metal outer-ring connecting to an inner Vault Door. This Vault Door will either be at the center (closed position), or the left (open position) of the outer ring. The open/left position will allow outbound traffic to leave the orbit of the current planet they are in proximity to. To allow inbound traffic, the entire outer ring, with the Vault Door locked in place, will rotate clockwise through 180 degrees to the open/right position to allow access to the inbound Lane. When the outbound Lane is then once again required, the structure then continues to rotate in a clockwise motion until it reaches the open/left position once again. When required, the Vault Door will return to the neutral position at the center of the ring, and the tunnel will be locked.
Regarding Grav Jumps: Whenever you wish to perform a Grav-Jump, you must first request permission from Starfield Control, who will guide you through the process. Once the route is set and your Exit Gate is locked in place, by activating your ship’s Grav-Drive, along with it’s incorporated spooling system, you will first lock on to the front of the tunnel entrance.
Next, using a system similar to an Aircraft Catapult, you will be pulled into the tunnel at great speed, where the Graviton Loop Array will hold your ship in-place inside the tunnel, and will also ensure you don’t accidentally go down the wrong path. At the other end, the spooling system described above then acts as an Arresting Cable, slowing you down over a very short distance.
If all of the above is actually correct, especially the last part, then I think I will be having this on repeat in the background before Grav-Jumps!
Finally, here is the link to my additional supporting evidence and other materials, including some stuff I haven’t had a chance to really go into yet. Feel free to throw any questions at me, and I’ll do my best to answer them. In the meantime, Showcase will commence in 24 Hours…

2023.06.10 19:09 FoxyMama85 Coffee enthusiast

Good afternoon! I'm new to the group and will most definitely have MANY questions because I love learning.
That being said, does anyone recommend a certain brand, bean, etc. (Excuse my ignorance and please feel free educate me where needed!) that holds the coffee aroma the longest?
Not only do we love the taste of coffee, we love the smell.
And, does it last longer as a bean or ground?

2023.06.10 19:09 Reasonable-Pay-3895 Which equipment technology has improved the most in last 10-20yrs?

The majority of clubs in my bag are incredibly dated and I want to build a priority list for a big upgrade (without spending hours and hours getting fitted for every club in the bag). Where should I start?
As title says, which clubs have benefited the most from new technology?
Some context - I was a pretty good junior player but stopped playing regularly after leaving college ~15yrs ago. This year I’m dedicated to playing more and currently handicap is low single digits (using TheGrint app so it doesn’t give me an official GHIN, says I’m a “2-4”).
Here’s what I’m gaming - I don’t hit any of them “bad” per se, so there’s no obvious place to start, but what upgrade would I benefit most from exploring??
Driver: Taylor Made Burner circa ‘09
3 wood: Titleist 975F 13.5º circa 1999 (I know people don’t like this club, but I rip it)
Hybrid: Callaway Razr 3, 21º circa 2013
Irons: Titleist 695 CB 4-PW circa 2005
Wedges: Titleist Vokey 52º, 56º, 60º (all from ~2021, so these are still good)
Putter: Scotty Cameron Santa Fe Tei3 circa 2007: you’ll have to pry this from my cold dead hands

2023.06.10 19:08 Mtntop24680 The worst server at my service bar… finally had to complain to a manager about her last night.

A (not so short) short rant, if you’ll indulge me, because I woke up still in a bad mood this morning.
I work at a seasonal resort. My little bar seats about 15 and I’m also responsible for the service bar for a decent sized restaurant. I’m relatively fast, 90% of the servers compliment me on how quick their drinks get out and jump to get me ice, glasses, whatever when the bar gets backed up, then tip over their required amount. The service bar is a tiny window into the restaurant, so I’m pretty isolated back there and it’s hard to flag someone down if I need something, so they do a good job keeping an eye out for me.
But one server. My god, this server. She rings in a drink, then immediately starts hovering. She yells through the window at me while I’m talking to bar guests. She takes half her order and stabs the ticket before the rest of the drinks are made and then never comes back for the rest of them or gets upset they weren’t made even though the ticket is gone. She tries to take other servers drinks, but refuses to run them when I tell her they aren’t hers. She can’t identify any of our beers or wines so she just rifles through them looking for hers. Tried to take a lager when she was waiting on a brown ale. She just stands there staring at me until hers are ready. Every interaction with her is absolutely maddening. Reportedly she’s known to have similar issues with the kitchen.
They seat the restaurant in waves, so I usually get a burst of tickets from all the servers at once, about every 15 minutes. One night, even though I was stacked 9 tickets deep, all cocktails, on her side, with a full bar, she threw a fit because her margarita took 6 minutes to come out. Told me she was going to have to apologize to her table for the long wait.
Last night I finally called the manager into the bar because I couldn’t take it anymore. A ticket of hers went missing, no idea how. She very well may have picked it up before it was made, she’s done it before, or I just lost it somehow. It happens. And then she didn’t notice or say anything for 30 minutes. I’m of course blamed and scolded for it happening because the table is pissed. She’s “afraid to ask me for drinks” because I’ve told her she can’t ask where her drinks are the second she sends them through. Anyway, manager doesn’t do anything after I complain. It was just a trainee manager and a trainer from corporate there last night anyway.
I work the next three nights with her. Pray for me. And share your awful server stories so I feel less insane for hating this lady.

2023.06.10 19:08 ShoddyReward Min/Max advice

Last save got corrupted, I’m not even sure how it happened I’m almost scared to do a new playthrough just for it to happen again but I think I will anyway. I even had a cloud save that dated back weeks ago and that one is still corrupted. I don’t mind restarting everything, it’s just the bbi stuff that I grinded for and got upgraded that’s a major loss. Anyway since it’s a new playthrough I might as well optimize and make a better build than my Jack of all trades build I had before. Even at 200 with maxed out weapons I still wasn’t doing much damage in bbi. What is the best build or route to 200 I can do (without items) I know strider and blast arrows is the pve meta but i was thinking something like a magic archer for myself in the end because that seemed the most strong in bbi and I like using physical and magic. And if you have a good support pawn build I’ll take that blueprint too.
