Coming to terms with my IQ obsession (+ praffe is insignificant) - thank you all!

2023.06.10 19:29 Ok_Camera_5081 Coming to terms with my IQ obsession (+ praffe is insignificant) - thank you all!

TLDR: I resign my obsession with IQ and can with reasonable certainty estimate it to be 140±5. I have become more confident in my academic and professional endeavors and have this subreddit to thank for it.
This post is in fairly stark contrast to the reigning homebody of this subreddit, 'HardStuckBronzeRank' (no hate though - got nothing but love for you buddy).
I started this journey in late-2021 to overcome my nervousness around cognitive testing, and it's been a great ride. Throughout my time here, I have taken approx. 40-50 different tests with the results averaging around 141-142.
I have talked to multiple interesting profiles from this subreddit and learned a lot about intelligence in the process. Similarly, it has certainly been entertaining to engage in discussions with like-minded, as well as 'un'-like-minded, people on the topic of intelligence, albeit being an investment that yields very little outside of this subreddit.
During this time, I have become significantly more confident in my cognitive abilities and it has shown in my academic achievements, and more recently in my full-time job. It has created a more deep-seated calm when facing complex problems and has allowed me to find substantial joy in trying to solve them.
All of this, both academically and professionally, would not have turned out this way, were it not for this subreddit, the tests, and the people. So, thank you all!
I do hope that other people share this experience, and I hope that the people who don't can recognize the hidden gem that this subreddit truly is.

Now onto some anecdotal data on practice effect, or lack thereof:
Unless you take the same test repeatedly, you really shouldn't worry about practice effect inflating your results too much. You'd be best off disposing of this term before it turns your new-found testing hobby into full-blown masochistic OCD. If you accept its premise, you will literally NEVER be satisfied with your results.
Below are the more recognizable/reliable tests I've taken throughout my time on this subreddit, which should help anecdotally support my point:

Late 2021 to early 2022, when I just started testing:
Mensa Finland: 140 - first test taken
Numerus Basic: 130
ICAR60: 141-145
PDIT: 146
EqusB high-range matrix tests: 141 & 144

Mid- to late 2022:
Mensa Wonderlic: 142
Psy-Q Raven's-like test: +139 (25/25)
CAIT: 145-147
OpenPsychometrics: 141
FRT-A Mensa Admission: +135

Early to mid-2023, when my obsession was tapering off:
Hagen Matrices: 145
BRGHT: 136-143 (renormed)
Lumosity: 141-142 (99.7th percentile)
JCTI: 142 - last test taken

2023.06.10 19:27 YungJDubz420 Dealer tells me issues on my new car isn't covered

I purchased a 2022 Honda Civic from a dealership in Southern California last March. I live in Norther California so I have been the car serviced at another dealership nearby my place. Couple months ago, a warning for adaptive cruise control failure popped up on my dashboard and has been there since then. Since I never use the cruise control, I figured I'd just wait till I get my car serviced again to get it checked out.
My car recently hit 15000 miles so last week I took my car in for service (oil change) and was told that the express service guys can't help me look at the problem with the cruise control so the adviser scheduled a regular service for me this Saturday. After the express service last week, I was told that my rear shock absorbers are leaking also and they will look at it when I bring it in today.
I brought my car to the dealer to get it checked out today, and was told that the rear shock absorbers that's leaking don't fall under the warranty. I asked the adviser that since the part isn't supposed to fail within a year and half and 15000 miles why is it not covered? I was essentially told that since the part isn't supposed to fail that quickly I must have done something to break it so it isn't covered. By that logic what is the point of having warranty? If any part fails they can just cliam "oh it isn't supposed to fail so you must have done something and borke it:"
For issue with the adaptive cruise control, they told me that they need to do a diagnostics to figure out which part is causing the issue. If the part that's causing the issue falls under warrnty and they'll fix it for free. If not, they are going to charge me $210 for just the diagnostics alone.
I was also told that the extended warranty I had purchased from the from the SoCal dealership is through a third party and that third party isn't a partner with the NorCal Honda so it's basically useless.
I left my car at the dealership to do the diagnostics and I am waitinfg for them to call me back. I am just so frustrated with this whole situation and I need some advice on how I should proceed. If they call me back and tells me the part that is causing the adaptive cruise control to fail doesn't fall under warranty what should I do? Also what can I do about the whole third party extended warranty situation?
I apologize for the long post and any help is appreciated!

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 19:04 storiesof-adreamer 25 [F4M] #Nashville/USA - Looking for my special subby boyfriend for a GFD long term relationship!

(If this post is still up, I'm still looking!)
Hey there. I really want to develop a female led/slight gentle femdom relationship with a special guy.
When a lot of men see the term "female led relationship," they think, "Oh, the woman will make all the decisions with no input on what I think/want."
Are there dynamics like that? I'm sure there is. Personally, I'm not looking to be "the boss" or "above" you in any way. I want us to be equal... but have you give up control to me in a few other ways. :)
What do I mean? Keep reading on!
You can call me Dreamer for now. (I'll tell you my real name once we get to know each other) Please do NOT call me Miss, Master, Dominatrix or Ma'am.
I'm 25 years old and an INFJ-T. I live in Nashville, Tennessee, USA (AKA Music City) and I'm on Central Standard Time. I'm a Black woman and I stand 5 feet, 7 inches tall. My eyes are brown and I wear glasses. I don't have any tattoos or piercings at the moment.
One thing I want to mention is that I'm plus size, AKA a bigger girl. I'm undergoing a vertical sleeve gastrectomy in two months to lose the excess weight I have in a sustainable and permanent way. I'm ready to regain my body and be healthy and confident again. I'd love to have you by my side throughout my journey!
As far as personality goes, I'd describe myself as empathetic and sweet. I like to help others as much as I can. In person, I tend to be rather shy at first. People tend to mistake that for weakness or gullibility. I'm anything but; my strength lies in introspection and quiet observation. I notice every nuance of a person's actions, words, body language, vibe... my intuition hasn't steered me wrong yet!
I won't go into detail on every single interest that I have but I'll talk about my biggest ones that you'll likely hear me mention the most.
I've been writing since I was six years old, but I started taking it seriously around 13 years old. All in all, it's been 19 years. As of right now, I primarily write Fanfiction but in the past, I've written short stories, poetry and I even tried to learn how to write screenplays at one point.
I wrote my first full-length book in 2018/2019. I started the sequel in early 2020, but I'm still working on it. I lost a LOT of inspiration during the pandemic but I'm finally writing for it again.
If you also enjoy writing, I'd love to "talk shop" with you and maybe we can exchange some of our past works.
Music has gotten me through a lot over the years. Yeah, yeah, I know everyone says that. But it truly has. It's shaped my life and introduced me to a lot of things and people that I probably never would've done or met otherwise.
There's no point in saying I like xyz genre because I've listened to pretty much everything. The only ones I truly hate are country and gangster rap. If you want specifics, though... I've been a HUGE twenty one pilots fan for 9 years. (I have more merch, stickers and other random shit than I care to admit to lmao) I also love other artists like Amber Run, Purity Ring, Phantogram, Daughter, Lorde, OneRepublic... plus tons more.
I've always had this dumb idea of a guy and I confessing to each other through playlists with songs that make us think fondly about each other...
God, I'm single.
I've been into photography for 10 years and I've had my DSLR for eight years. (It's definitely the camera version of 'Ol Reliable) I enjoy nature and portrait photography. I'd love to show you some of my work and get your thoughts on it.
TV genres I like: Animation (like Spongebob), comedy, drama, documentaries (disaster and crime ones are my favorites), true crime (like Forensic Files), old sitcoms (like Sanford and Son) and cooking and baking competitions/reality TV (like Kitchen Nightmares US and UK, Hell's Kitchen, Master Chef, The Great British Baking Show, etc)
Movie genres I like: Animation, drama, comedy, action, psychological thrillers and science fiction. I thoroughly loved The Greatest Showman so one could say I like musicals but it's the only one I've seen so not sure if that really counts. Comic book movies are pretty alright too, but I really haven't seen anything past the first Avengers movie lmaooooo.
I say this as unpretentiously as possible, but I haven't seen most popular TV shows or movies that your average person likes. I think the last "popular" thing I watched was that Jeffrey Dahmer series on Netflix. (mainly out of morbid curiosity because everyone was freaking out about it... and because I think Evan Peters is a cutie) I only saw a few episodes and then forgot to watch the rest of it, but it wasn't as horrific as everyone was saying. Maybe I've watched too much Forensic Files and I'm desensitized lmao.
✨️Video and computer games✨️
Video game genres I like: Adventure, action-adventure, RPGs & JRPGs, Strategy... basically anything that is relatively fun and not horror related.
Some of my all-time favorites: Kingdom Hearts II, Ratchet and Clank, Journey, Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy X.
As far as computer games, the only thing I play on a regular basis is The Sims 2 and The Sims 4. As a kid, I loved simulator and time-management games; some old favorites are the RCT series, Simcity: Rush Hour, the first four Diner Dash games, the Delicious series and Burger Shop 2 (which I still have on my computer actually lmao)
✨️Other random interests✨️
Art, traveling, people watching, researching random topics on Wikipedia and watching YouTube, especially channels with old shows and movies.
My last position was working nights at a psychiatric hospital. I'm looking for something new at the moment.
I'm officially a college student at 25. Yay! Feel free to ask me more about it, I'd love to talk.
I really love dogs and cats. I have three cats and they're little demons but I love them to death. I also love small animals like ferrets, bunnies and snakes!
My main love languages are words of affirmation, quality time and gift giving/receiving. To be honest, though, there's elements of each language that I enjoy or relate to in one way or another.
I don't smoke and I drink every so often. Otherwise, I'm vaccinated and DDF.
I'm looking for a guy between the ages of 23-33 years old. I might be willing to talk to someone within two years in either direction (so 21 min and 35 max) if you meet all my other preferences/wants. If you're younger than 21 or older than 35, though, please don't contact me.
Please be single and emotionally available. I won't interact with anyone already in a relationship or married (even if you're separated or in a "dead bedroom," you're STILL married) and I'm especially not interested in poly/ENM. I'm 100% monogamous.
Hair is super important to me! I prefer medium length to long hair, something I can stroke and play with a lot lmao.
I have a REALLY big soft spot for blue and/or doe eyes, but don't let that deter you. If you have kind eyes, I'll fall in love with them, no matter their color!
I tend to like softer facial features and even softer personalities. Are you super masculine in public but a total softie in private? Lovely! Are you less masculine but a little more feminine? Great! Are you androgynous or otherwise fall somewhere in between? I can dig it!
Key traits that I like in a guy include, but are not limited to: Being sweet, gentle, empathetic, considerate, an active listener, exceptional at communication and willing to go the extra mile for those that you love, be it family, friends, your partner, etc.
With that being said, it's important that you have time for me. I'm not expecting us to talk 24/7 but if you're always too busy to talk to me, this won't work. At some point, I'd like for us to also talk on the phone as our schedules permit, of course.
As I mentioned in the beginning of this post, please be from the USA/North America and willing to meet and get to know each other in person ASAP.
It's important to me that you're an active listener; what I mean is that you'll make an effort to listen to what I have to say and respond to it accordingly. If I tell you my thoughts on a matter or ask you a question or give you a compliment etc etc, please respond to it. It makes me feel so sad and small if I feel like my thoughts or opinions are not important/relevant.
I can tell pretty quickly if someone is genuinely interested in me or not. Like I said before, I notice everything lol.
I mentioned earlier how one of my love languages is words of affirmation. One of the ways I enjoy that is through compliments. I'm not looking for you to worship the ground I walk on, but being told "You look beautiful" or "When you do xyz, that makes me really happy" makes me feel SO seen and appreciated.
It's incredibly frustrating to send a picture of myself and get a lukewarm response in return. :(
Affection is also super important to me. Holding hands, hugging, kissing, cuddling, touching... all the cute couple shit. I want you to touch me, not in a pervy way, but in an affectionate way. I want to stroke your hair while I hold you close... little things like that make me incredibly happy.
Keep in mind, everything I want from you, I'll give to you in return. I'll always listen and acknowledge you, give you compliments, shower you in affection, plus whatever else makes you feel wanted and appreciated as a person and in a relationship.
I always want you to have a choice and be able to voice your opinion. I will never degrade or boss you around in general, but especially when it comes to your personal choices. I'm a switch that used to be a predominant sub and believe me, I've had doms tell me before, "I make the decision on what you wear, what to eat, who you hang out with, etc etc... because I'm your dom and what I say goes."
Some people may like that. More power to them. But I'm not like that. I want you to feel free to express yourself. If you want my opinion, I'll give it to you, of course. But my job is to build you up and support your decisions, no matter how small!
Again, I'm not looking for you to kiss my ass. I'd love for you to take the lead on most decisions (with my input, of course). But I want you to also have a "service" attitude; whether that's helping out with household chores or surprising me with a massage after work or giving me flowers "just because" or helping me paint my toenails lol... just to name some examples. The sky's the limit.
That extends to "the bedroom" as well. I want my pleasure to be just as important to you as yours is to me.
In short? I just want to feel doted on and taken care of. I want to be the most important person in your life and you be the most important person in my life. I want to make you feel special and praise you and tell you how much you mean to me. And I want the same in return. 💓
● "KINKS" ●
This is inevitably gonna come up at some point. I'll say when it comes to my "kinks" (if you want to call them that) I like:
Teasing, edging, telling you when you can cum and begging me for it (I believe it's called orgasm control/denial), moaning, praise, blindfolds, eye contact, body worshiping (you and me), breast worship, oral, fingering and using toys on you.
Been a little curious about pegging someone one day. We'd have to build up to it, of course, because I don't want to hurt you. If you're not into that, though, don't worry! It's definitely not a requirement.
Things I do NOT like (or hard limits) are:
Humiliation, degradation, anything that causes you or me physical, emotional and mental harm, blood, pee, scat, vomit, diapers, CNC, ageplay, raceplay, hitting, slapping, choking or anything else illegal, unethical or otherwise unloving.
If you read all of this, good job! Here's a cookie, hope you like chocolate chip. 🍪
Seriously, though, I can't name every little thing I want. Despite the length of this post, I'm not trying to play Build-A-Boy. I realize you have your own caveats and that's totally fine. Let's get to know each other and see what happens. All I ask for, again, is that you want a serious, longterm relationship and not view me as just some sort of "kink dispenser."
Chats or DMs are fine. When you send me a message, please include the following...
• Name or alias • Location • Age • Height, body type, hair cololength, eye color • Your interests/hobbies • Whether you're a sub or a switch • What you're looking for out of a relationship and something (or things) you really enjoyed about my post • A clear, SFW picture of yourself • Your current favorite song (so I know you actually read through all of this) • Whatever else you want to add to catch my attention. The more you can match my "detailed energy," the better.
I won't reply to those who ignore my preferences or the message requirements above. If you send me nudes/dick pics/sexting or FWB requests/rude messages, you will be blocked and reported.
Thank you so much for reading this, and I hope you have a good night!
(P.S. I don't use Snap, Kik, Telegram, WhatsApp and whatever else. I use Discord and I only give my cell number out to people that I'm comfy with.)

2023.06.10 18:59 Sup_Devil Smaller SUV recommendations for Mom

Looking for some input on a car purchase for my mom. She in her late 60s and has always driven Honda Pilots as she spent alot of time transporting grandkids over the years. She was in an accident recently and got some money as her car was totaled.
She was already looking to downsize a bit as the grandkids are growing up and she doesn't need so much room. She does enjoy the higher seating position of an SUV though. I recommended a CR-V. But she's open to other options, new and used.
Here budget is $30-35k.

2023.06.10 18:50 VeryLargeArray25 David Grusch and the 1933 Magenta Crash Retrieval

David Grusch and the 1933 Magenta Crash Retrieval
Long time lurker, first time poster. What a few couple of weeks! I’m on a burner account here, to further protect my anonymity, hence the lack of posting history. This is long, but bear with me. I think it’s worth it...
Something David Grusch (DG) said in his interview with the French newspaper is sticking in my craw.
According to DG in that interview, the first (and only) recovery he was approved to disclose by the DoD was the 1933 Magenta crash in Italy.
According to DG in that interview, the OSS recovered the vehicle / bodies from where they were being stored in Italy in 1944. Here’s his quote from the interview:
I: Can we learn more about the places where these "vessels" were recovered?
DG: One of them was in Italy in 1933, it is the oldest case on which I have been briefed. I can't talk about others. What would have happened? In 1933, a vessel resembling a bell, about ten meters in size, was recovered in Magenta, northern Italy. It was kept by Mussolini's government until officers from the Office of Strategic Services (OSS, a former US intelligence agency) recovered it in 1944. The irony is that it Predates anything the public has heard of for decades, like Roswell, etc. I was cleared to speak about it by the Department of Defense Security Prepublication and Review Office.
Now, I want to say that so far DG has is about as reliable as they come. Unimpeachable qualifications, following the proper protocol / whistleblower disclosure procedures, etc. The real deal.
But here’s my problem with DG’s 1944 timeline…
The 1933 Magenta Crash happened in Northern Italy, outside Milan, in a district called Magenta.
Source: https://www.theblackvault.com/casefiles/the-ufo-files-of-mussolini-fascist-ufo-files-by-roberto-pinotti/
According to UFO Contacts in Italy Volume One by Roberto Pinotti, after the purported crash, the Italian Government, under the control of Mussolini, was determined to study the vehicle and its pilots and put on a lid on the entire situation.
This is basically the gist of the Fascist UFO Files, *if* you believe them to be authentic.
Pinotti hypothesized that the crash wreckage and possibly pilots were either transferred nearby to the SIAI Marcheti hangars at the airfield in Vergiate, IT… OR transferred to the SIAI Marchetti HQ/factory in Sesto Calende (also very close by):
Source: Author.
All that tracks so far with what DG has said, right?
But then, Pinotti claimed that the SIAI Marchetti airfield was liberated by the 1st Armored Division during Operation Grapeshot in Apr 1945 and that’s when the 1933 crash wreckage was recovered by the United States.
And that’s where my issues lies — what timeline, if either, is correct?
Was the 1933 crash wreckage recovered by OSS agents in 1944, as according to DG?
Was the SIAI Marchetti Airfield at Vergiate (where the crash wreckage was supposedly stored) liberated by 1st Armored Div in 1945, as hypothesized by Pinotti?
Obviously, DG seems like a more reliable source, given his unimpeachable reputation. But… there is a well documented historical record here for further context, so I started digging.
In 1944, Northern Italy was still under Italian / German control. Which means that if we’re to believe DG’s claim that OSS agents recovered the 1933 Magenta Craft in 1944… the OSS team would have had to parachute behind enemy lines, steal quite likely one of the most heavily guarded secrets in the entire Nazi empire, and then somehow transport the wreckage (10m bell) and the pilots' biological remains south through enemy territory and back across allied lines.
A) I want to see that movie.
B) That operation stretches the bounds of credulity. I’m not saying it’s not possible. And OSS Leader Wild Bill Donovan was called Wild Bill for a reason. But I’ll be damned if it’s not one of the craziest ideas I’ve ever heard.
So, that’s DG’s stated timeline on the recovery.
What about Pinotti’s hypothesis? Well, he was right about a lot of things.
That area of Northern Italy (Milan and its environs) was liberated by the US 1st Armored Division in April 1945 during Operation Grapeshot.
But a US Army division is massive, comprised of tens of thousands of soldiers. An entire division didn’t likely liberate the airport.
A specific unit did.
After some digging, I discovered the US Army 81st Calvary Reconnaissance Squadron (Mechanized) was responsible for that sector of territory the 1st Armored Div was liberating.
What's interesting about that is that on the very public facing webpages like wikipedia, the 81st Cav isn't listed in the order of battle under the 1st Armored Division. But if you dig into the historical record, they were definitely there.
The 81st Cav was a Squadron or Company sized unit, fielding roughly 200 soldiers in mechanized vehicles. It was a scout unit. Out on the vanguard of the offensive. Highly mobile and fast.
And keep in mind, this is warfare. The US Army in Italy and its allies are pushing hard against the German and Italian lines, trying to liberate northern Italy.
Here’s a pic of one element of the 81st Cav in Vergato, a few weeks prior to Apr 1945:
Source: https://granger.com/results.asp?inline=true&image=0180605&wwwflag=4&itemx=17
So, if we're to believe Pinotti's hypothesis that elements of the 1st Armored Division liberated the SIAI Marchetti Airfield in Vergiate (and discovered the wreckage of the 1933 Magenta crash stored there), it's a very good bet that elements of the 81st Cav Reconnaissance Squad liberated that airport1.
So, why is it important to understand what unit specifically was there?
Because, the US Military loves paperwork. And during the war, these frontline units would write daily / weekly / monthly after-action reports, detailing what missions occurred on each day. Those became part of the unit's history of the war. A documented paper trail of what was happening when.
Here's an example of what one of those reports looked like, from April 1945:
Source: https://cgsc.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/collection/p4013coll8/id/3642/rec/7
An entire after-action history of the 81st Cav Reconnaissance Squadron exists for the months of Apr 1945 and May 1945 in the Ike Skelton Combined Arms Research Digital library. The link to the specific page is listed as the source for the image above.
It's a pretty thick PDF of AARs that you can download, and you can track the 81st's movements through northern Italy in the areas around Magenta and Milan. The time period we're interested in begins on page 142.
(One quick note -- the archivist got the title of the unit wrong in the library's classification system, calling them the 81st Armored Battalion. But it's the same unit, as you can tell from the top of the photo above. If you play around with searching for more documents look both for 81st Calvary Reconnaissance Squadron AND 81st Armored Battalion).
This is where it gets weird, IMO. If you download the document of the 81st Cav's AARs, the scans of the original pages are pretty decent. Not great, but decent. But when you reach the page about the 81st Cav's activities in the beginning of May of 1945, it begins to look funky.
Here's what May 1945 looks like:
Source: Same site as above, pg. 152 of downloaded PDF.
It's readable, if you try. But it's very, very difficult to follow.
And it makes me wonder, is that intentional? Was this an addendum or altered AAR, given what the 81st Cav may have discovered when liberating the SIAI Marchetti Vergiate Airport? Was it written after the events of late Apr / early May 1945 on different paper or with different ink, and that's what contributed to the bad scan?
That's all highly speculative, I know. If you read the next page in the section, there are multiple days of "No Change for the squadron."
Source: Same as the above, additions in pink by the author.
Why was there no change for the squadron? Well, one possible reason is that Germany officially surrendered in Italy on May 2nd, 1945. But mop-up operations, prisoner transport, etc were ongoing for weeks afterwards.
But also, if your unit had come across something wholly unbelievable, and you were pulling guard duty while waiting for the higher-ups to figure out what to do with it, but you still had to officially document what your unit was up to while pulling that top-secret guard duty...
Again, speculative. I know.
Anyway, this was all born out of a desire to understand who's timeline of events concerning the recovery of the 1933 Magenta Crash wreckage is correct -- David Grusch's or Pinotti's.
My 2 cents? I think DG maybe the date wrong by 6 months, claiming OSS recovered the wreckage in late 1944 when in actuality it was in Apr / May 1945 right after that area had been liberated. And the 81st Cav Reconnaissance Squadron was pulling guard duty at either the SIAI Marchetti Airport in Vergiate or the SIAI Marchetti HQ in Sesto Calende for a few days in early 1945 while waiting for OSS to organize the retrieval.
But, I'm sure we'll know soon enough.
1 - There was another unit operating in the area at that time. The 34th Infantry Division. I haven't dug into their movements as much.

2023.06.10 18:25 frenchji Minivan or 3rd Row Seat Vehicle

My family has gone and messed up with having three kids. We currently only a 2010 Honda Pilot, but it’s getting up there in miles and the kids are getting too big! My wife and I have test drove several newer vehicles including the following: Highlander, Pilot, Sienna, Odyssey. Highlander and pilot is still too cramped, so those are out of the question. We were blown away by the Sienna and that’s what we are highly considering, but I’m wondering if there are any other vehicles we should consider? We have not looked at any domestic products as we typically buy Japanese, but perhaps we should consider. I’m also wondering if the newehybrid Siennas are worth considering. We have been mostly looking at 2018-2020 models, but I hybrid sounds nice on paper.
The following is our criteria/budget: Price: $35,000 (or less) Miles: 75,000 (or less and also highly dependent on reliability of vehicle) -would consider new, but mostly looking at used vehicles. -reliability is important as we typically keep our vehicles for over a decade. -live in the Midwest, so AWD is nice, but not a deal breaker.

2023.06.10 17:46 Mean_Preparation_408 Cost of repairs exceed value of car

I have a 12 year old Honda with 270k miles on it, I have had it for five years and put almost 40k of those on it. It’s worth at BEST about 6k but I doubt I’d ever get that for it, and I just took it in to get it checked out and it has numerous issues - with 270k miles you can imagine the sort of stuff that’s wrong with it. Engine stuff - piston rings and oil pump O-rings, among several other big things. Overall the total cost of repairs (at the dealership shop) is around 8k, and that does not include wear items like tires, brakes, oil change etc. The car itself has never had any real problems until recently, and even the problems it has had has not impacted its reliability. I’m not exactly sentimentality attached to it, and I’m pretty sure I know what I’m going to do with it, but just wanted some unbiased professional advice. When is the cost of repairs too much to justify? Given the info I have said, what would you personally do in this situation? (Not including repairing it myself) Thanks!

2023.06.10 17:45 iEatMorblyObeseKids Apple Watch SE (2022) - Thoughts from an Apple Watch 8 User

Hey there, Apple Watch enthusiasts! I recently got my hands on the Apple Watch SE (2022) and wanted to share my experience with all of you. As an Apple Watch 8 user, I've been pleasantly surprised by the SE model, and I'm curious to hear your opinions on it.
Personally, I don't consider myself a heavy Apple Watch user, so the lower battery life hasn't been a major concern for me. I usually don't have an issue with charging it overnight, and it easily lasts throughout the day. However, I can see how it might be a downside for those who rely on their Apple Watch for extended periods without access to a charger.
When it comes to health features, the Apple Watch SE might not offer all the bells and whistles of the Apple Watch 8, but for someone like me who is generally healthy and doesn't have any specific health risk factors, it works just fine. I don't necessarily need the extra health monitoring capabilities beyond heart rate tracking. Of course, everyone's health needs are different, so it's essential to consider your specific requirements before making a decision.
One aspect I miss from my Apple Watch 8 is the always-on display. It's convenient to be able to glance at the time and other information without having to lift or tap the screen. However, I understand that compromises are made to keep the Apple Watch SE more affordable, and it's something I'm willing to bear in exchange for the lower cost.
Overall, I've had a positive experience with the Apple Watch SE as a secondary watch. It serves as a reliable companion and offers excellent value for the price. For those of you who are considering dipping your toes into the Apple Watch ecosystem for the first time, I believe the SE could be an excellent starting point.
Now, I'd love to hear from all of you! What are your thoughts on the Apple Watch SE (2022)? Have any of you made the switch from a higher-tier model like the Apple Watch 8? How has the SE performed for you? Let's discuss and share our experiences!
EDIT: I forgot to mention that for my personal experience I have had no issue with the display as well, I have near perfect eyesight so I didn't have a major impact on the 1mm difference from my Apple Watch 8 but that can matter depending on how poor someone's eyesight is

2023.06.10 17:42 Atheissa Still Haven't Received Passenger Compensation for September 2022 Pilots' Strike

After many years of using Lufthansa to fly between Canada and Europe, I am appalled by their poor customer service.
I filed a claim via their website a month after the September 1, 2022 strike. I was travelling YVR-MUC-KRK and had to spend 2 nights at YVR waiting to be rebooked on a September 3rd flight.
Their website clearly states what I am entitled to. https://www.lufthansa.com/ca/en/passenger-rights
Plus I have expenses for 2 nights hotel.
I've had a few email exchanges with their Customer Service which have been evasive. They seemed like auto-replies offering me 250 Euro for my troubles. That's just insulting.
I would like to file in Small Claims Court in Vancouver, but I don't know how to serve Lufthansa since they don't have corporate offices here.
I thought there might be a CLASS ACTION lawsuit given the number of passengers affected by their pilots strike, but I haven't found any information online about such.
I am incredibly disappointed with Lufthansa. How can anyone trust an airline like this?
I'll be sure to use Air Canada for my travel in the future since it's easier to deal with a Canadian company as a Canadian resident.

June 20xx, Duchy of Takistan, Kingdom of Sahrani
Sahrani Liberation Army has used the recent drought to incite peasant uprising in North Takistan. Their combined forces have allowed them to capture Mantiq, besiege Kushak and start pushing south to Takistan proper.
Queen has despatched RMEF (Royal Marine expeditionary force) to delay SLA, before rest of army arrives.
Key role plays town of Tazri, whoever holds it, can cut supply lines of the other.
For that reason RMEF will assault Tazri before SLA reinforcements will arrive and then hold it.
Criticisms about historical accuracy should be shouted down an empty can of microwave noodles.

Enemy Forces

Takistani Peasant Uprising - Infantry, Technicals. Location: Town of Tazri.
Sahrani Liberation Army - Infantry, Mechanized, Armour, Air, AA assets. Location: North East of Takistan.

Player Forces

Royal Sahrani Marines - Mechanized Platoon. Location: FOB Rusty
Royal Sahrani Marine Aviation - OV-1D Mohawk (Callsign MUFASA). Location: Kharu Airfield

Friendly Forces

1x 203mm Howitzer- Callsign Rafiki. Location: FB Kevin
MEDEVAC - Location: Kharu Airfield
Logistical Airdrop - Location: SE of AO

Civil/Terrain/ Weather considerations

Terrain - Hills, sand, sand women, sand children. Urban areas.
Civil - Civilians present across AO. Limit collateral damage
Current weather - overcast, mild wind, morning fog, 17°C
Forecasted weather - overcast, mild wind, no fog, light rain 29°C

Mission Objectives

1) Assault town of Tarzi
Try to prevent collateral damage to town. Use of artillery support is not recommended within town.
2) Prepare defences
Depending on how long you take to assault, expect already streaming in SLA reinforcements.
You have access to digging equipment and limited fortify supply, use them well, use them fast.
3) Hold town of Tazri
SLA understands the value of Tarzi, do not expect them to give it up easily.


Rules of Engagement: Avoid causing collateral damage.
Mission starting time: 07:00 (already daylight)

In case you were wondering why GrubHub is so dead, 9% Market share as of April 2023. They used to have 60%
Here is some context for everyone who is continuously complaining about how dead GrubHub is. This is from Bloomberg, a very reputable source. GrubHub 9%, doordash 60%, ubereats 23%. Why they don't just put Postmates in with Uber Eats now is unclear other than it's still its own app but it is on the Uber Eats delivery platform.

2023.06.10 17:17 throwawayaccountdown The state of USDC versus USDT

What is currently happening with USDC? Over the past year it has almost halved its marketcap, while USDT is steadily increasing. There was a point somewhere in 2022 that it seemed like that USDC would overtake USDT, but ever since Terra's downfall and the FTX turmoil it has been decreasing a lot.
The general concensus always used to be that USDT is very dubious stablecoin backed by Chinese commercial paper, while USDC seemed to be the more reliable stablecoin. People would rather buy crypto with USDC than with USDT, as a sudden death spiral (or depegging) was always on the horizon.
How has this view changed over the past year?
