2023.03.29 07:46 blind_nova I don't know what to title this...

So, I've been thinking; and I need to post my thoughts about this and possibly get a third party perspective.
I feel like I will never date or get married to someone because there is a lot of roadblocks preventing me.
First: I really only want to date to see if it's for me or not. I like to try something out before I really say it's for me like with video games. If there is hype around a game my interest might be peaked, but I have to try it to see if I like it. However doing that with a person just feels immorally wrong, like I'm using the person. Because what happens when I am dating someone and decide dating isn't for me? Then I'd have to break up with them all because I used them. It seems very wrong and I can't under good conscience do that to someone just to find out. At least with a video game I can just never play it again and no one gets hurt.
Second: statistically if I started dating it's almost guaranteed to fail. Not only do most first roughly 19% of first time relationships actually end in marriage, but roughly 73% of autistic people have HAD a relationship, and only 9% of them reported feeling dissatisfied. Those stack on top of each other is it's safe to say if I ever have a first relationship then why would I go into it knowing it's going to fail?
Thirdly: Ignoring everything above, I wouldn't know anything about it. There is a talking stage, how do you know you are in one? Is it discussed? How long does it last? What exactly do you talk about? After the talking stage, what then? How do I know when too much information about me is overwhelming or too soon? How do I know if I am keeping too many secrets from my partner? There's so much about relationships that I don't know where to start. Also apparently you have to "put yourself out there" how do I do that? How do I know if someone else is "out there" it's not like an RPG where the person will have a "?" Over their head.
Social interaction is challenging enough as it is for me, but apparently dating has a lot of non-verbal communication which is non existent for me. It's kinda been stressing me out because even though I'm young now, what happens if I spend too much time stressing about it that I miss my opportunity? Then I will never know...
(Also, if my stats are wrong I really just did a quick Google search to find them, they may or may not be right however I don't believe they are that far off. It's still a low chance of a first relationship succeeding and even lower if you have autism)

2023.03.29 07:46 Melondewdrops Friend abruptly ends friendship

I had a friend who decided to end our friendship through ignoring me (which is really awkward because we have the same friend group and see each other all the time) I had done things and said things that had hurt her without me knowing. When she started to ignore me I had no idea if this was because she was angry and wanted me to apologize or makeup. Basically I had no idea what her intentions are. I later found out through mutual friend that she had built up a lot of resentment for me through the years for the things I had said and done that had unintentionally hurt her and she had reached her breaking point. At first I was consumed by guilt and shame I had a nervous break down for a little bit. My mutual friend (same one who told me why she had ended our friendship) had voluntarily helped me feel better. I later found out I had done something to make her angry too and instead of going To me she also told someone else who informed me. Right now I do feel bad for hurting people but I also feel frustrated that nobody was willing to ever communicate with me and just let there resentment pile up. If I had known these things I would’ve never done or said them. I am hurt that people don’t feel comfortable communicating with me, And I hate myself for not seeing before how much they didn’t like being around me. I can’t tell if it’s common sense and I should’ve known. I really suck at social interactions. I feel like they don’t owe me a explanation but it also hurts lol

2023.03.29 07:46 ryhaltswhiskey Small victory: I have progressed to the "okay bye" response to rejection

First scenario: someone that I dated back in the last half of last year asked for some space, so we stopped talking to each other. I asked if I could reach out in a few months and see how she was doing. she said okay. So I did and she said she wasn't really interested in talking to me anymore and wasn't going to explain anything about why we broke up -- but she wishes me well. Lame.
My literal response: "okay bye"
Second scenario: somebody that I've been on a few dates with. We've been chatting a lot over the past few months but she's been dealing with medical issues caused by a car accident. Plus she was hard to get together with because her child care duties were so overwhelming. Anyway today she said something about feeling like we weren't a good long-term fit and she wasn't looking for something casual. I don't remember much of what she said frankly.
My literal response: "okay bye"
Feels good. Feels good that I didn't say well reach out in the future if you are interested blah blah blah or anything about I wish you well and yada yada.
Nope. Just a simple "okay bye".

2023.03.29 07:45 cartoonist452 Thoughts?

I was looking into this. Per owner, “mechanically, it’s awesome”. lol Timing and seals done at 144k and clutch was done at 120k. Trans fluid was changed with clutch. Small oil leak somewhere on the oil pan but I can ask for some pictures to locate it exactly. Owner also states it could use new shifter bushings. Just wanted some of yall’s expert TL opinions. I know $11900 seems a lot but given its a type s and the owner reassures me he’s taken really good care it. Cosmetically, it has just dings and scratches. Nothing major.
I am just browsing for something fun i guess. I drive a toyota camry hybrid.

2023.03.29 07:45 gunsngreenroses How do I (19 F) approach a guy (20M) that I like?

Hi Reddit, really hope I could get some advice, This all starts in September, I am a freshman in college. In my class there is this guy I think is cute (let’s call him Peter), at the time I had a pretty intense situation-ship so I really didn’t think anything of it. In November my friends and I decide to go to the club, Peter is there and tries to hit on me and kiss me, my situation ship is still going on, and Peter is pretty drunk so I try to just politely say no. Monday after that weekend he tries to apologize but I was finishing a test, so I told him we could talk later, I left class and completely forgot he wanted to talk. In January me and my friends go to the club again, my town is pretty small so there are only like 3-4 really nice clubs, and this place is a place Peter usually goes to, before entering the club I was already kind of tipsy, and I confessed to my friends that I kind of life Peter and hoped we’d bump into each other, so we did, I am pretty shy but being tipsy helped me talk to him, we ended up kissing and having a good time together at the club, at school he is pretty shy as well so I really hadn’t talked to him before, I told him that we should talk more at school and be friends, Monday rolls around and he acts as if nothing happened that weekend, i was kind of confused but since Peter is kind of shy and mysterious I brushed it off, I go to the club again that weekend and we see each other again, I told him I was upset that he acted like we didn’t know each other at school, he apologized and said that he really didn’t know how to talk to me and said he was really sorry, I invited him over to my house that night and he ended up sleeping over, nothing happened that night, we just talked and hung out, after that weekend he talked to me in class and was basically all over me at school, We take two different language classes, so he took me to my class, before taking me he held my hand and walked me to class, I was really surprised by this, since I didn’t really expect him to hold my hand in school as if we were a couple or something like that, and this started to be the normal for me everyday, we would walk around campus together holding hands, kiss me and hug me at school. What made me be confused is that he really didn’t invite me out on a date or anything, he told me one day after class that we should go out just us two, I understand that he is a busy guy, after class he works, and does homework and all that, but I was still hoping he would invite me out, since we only went to party’s together with the rest of our class mates or hang out or sleepover at my house (still nothing has happened), one day we kind of just stopped talking, this was about two weeks ago, in class he doesn’t really talk to me or say hi, which I understand if he doesn’t want anything serious but then why does he do all these things that give me mixed signals about being something or not, today he texted me asking if he had left something at my house, he left a necklace here about more than a month ago and I don’t know if it’s an excuse for him to talk to me and not have an awkward interaction out of nowhere, but I have been thinking a lot about telling him my feelings and that I really do like him, he has a lot of good qualities, he is really handsome and sweet, he is so smart and always would help me out with school work, I want to ask him his perspective of this weird situation-ship, since tomorrow I’m planning to give him his necklace back, I just don’t know how to express correctly my feelings to him, I am pretty new in how to talk to a guy since I really never have done it before, I really like Peter and just want a comfortable outcome, even if we just are friends. Please please give me tips and recommendations on how to approach this the best way possible!

2023.03.29 07:45 lucariouwu68 Why does no one seem to understand Clam Blitz?

Clam Blitz is probably the mode I'm weakest at, but I feel like in a lot of matches I'm the only one who's actually making meaningful progress towards the objective. I'm at S rank, so I feel like everyone should know how the modes work, but in almost all of my matches I see people on both sides actively avoiding dropped Power Clams, picking up Power Clams and then immediately throwing themselves into 4v1s, or deliberately avoiding clams when they have 7/8. People only play this bad in Clam Blitz for some reason, I see occasional mistakes in Rainmaker and sometimes Tower Control, but with Clam Blitz I have to expect that my teammates aren't going to be contributing unless I somehow force them to. It's probably one of my favourite modes when both sides understand the game, but in solo queue it's either exhausting because my teammates are incompetent, extremely easy because my opponents are, or both at the same time somehow.

They Will Be Happy

Part 1:

I woke up this morning feeling well-rested and refreshed, but also slightly disoriented. As I opened my eyes, I remembered where I was; in my sleeper pod, a device that has become as commonplace as a backpack, or a binder for students. It's hard to imagine a time when people didn't use them, when we didn't understand the impact that our actions had on the environment.
It's a responsibility we take seriously, and one that we're taught from a young age. It's frustrating to think that some of our parents don't understand the urgency of the situation. They seem content to live in the past, ignorant of the harm that's been done, but I won't let their complacency deter me from doing what's right. I'll continue to do my part, to use my voice and my actions to make a positive impact. And perhaps, with time and education, they'll come to see that this isn't just a passing trend; it's a necessity for survival.
The farming and cultivation of meat is almost non-existent now, given the exorbitant carbon costs associated with it. On the bright side, the preparation and cultivation of insects has advanced to such a degree that most people can barely tell the difference. I used to be hesitant about the idea, but now I enjoy my cricket granola bars and mealworm tacos just as much as I used to enjoy traditional meat-based dishes.
I make my way to The Girls Dormitory, and I can’t help but appreciate how clean and modern everything looks. It’s a testament to the fact that even small changes in our habits can make a massive difference. We share community spaces to cut back on carbon, and everyone commits to using as few cosmetics as possible once again as a way to save the planet, but also to go light on our individual carbon credit allotments. It's the little things that add up, and I'm proud to be a part of a community that takes these issues seriously. Inside the dormitory, I was greeted by my fellow residents, all of whom were equally committed to the cause. We chatted and caught up on our day, I couldn't help but feel a sense of camaraderie. It's not just about saving the planet; it's about coming together to create a better future for everyone.
After a long day of classes, I find myself eagerly anticipating the protest I'm attending after school. It's a rally to promote positive vibes within the trans community, and as an “ally,” it's my responsibility to show up and show lend support. It's not always easy to make time for activism, especially when there are so many other demands on my time, but I know that it's important to prioritize this cause. I make my way to the protest reflecting on how far we've come as a society. The world outside my sleeper pod is not perfect, but it's a far cry from the world my parents grew up in. There is greater awareness and acceptance of marginalized communities, and more and more people are willing to stand up and fight for what's right.
Still, there is much work to be done, and it's up to all of us to fight for their rights and dignity. I'm proud to be a part of this movement, to use my privilege and voice to amplify their message. I'm struck by the energy and passion of the crowd. People from all walks of life have come together to stand in solidarity, and there's a sense of hope and determination in the air; a belief that we can make a difference, and that we can create a better world for all.
I remember the day when the President's daughter came out as transgender. It was all over the news, and there was so much talk about it in my school. As someone who considers themselves an ally to the LGBTQ+ community, I was so happy to see someone in such a powerful position be open and honest about who they are. It gave me hope that one day, people won't have to hide who they are and can live their lives authentically. I admire her because she knew that by coming out, she would be under a lot of scrutiny, but she did it anyway because it was the right thing to do. I think that's what makes her a hero in my eyes.
There has been a slow but noticeable rise in “Phoenix Pods” popping up around the city. These pods offer a painless and dignified way for people with chronic illnesses to end their suffering, and at the same time, they provide a sustainable solution to the issue of burial space. The idea of being planted back into the earth and becoming part of the planet itself is actually quite beautiful, if you think about it. I know some people are uncomfortable with the idea of assisted suicide, but I see it as a brave and selfless act. These individuals are taking on the responsibility of reducing their carbon footprint and easing the strain on our already overburdened planet. It's a sacrifice that shouldn't be taken lightly, but I can't help but admire the courage and conviction of those who choose this path. A person who decides to use the pod also has the option to give their remaining carbon credits to friends and family allowing them to escape climate debt and live more meaningful lives.
I couldn't help but feel a sense of awe as I watched The President’s daughter use one of these pods on a livestream. It was a somber moment, to be sure, but it was also a powerful statement of commitment to Mother Earth. I feel a sense of pride in the way that my generation has embraced this new technology as a solution to the population crisis. These devices have become the symbol of hope and sacrifice, a way for people to take responsibility for their impact on the planet and to leave behind a legacy of stewardship. Her passing was a call to action, a reminder that we all have a role to play; and in the aftermath of her death, there was a renewed sense of urgency and commitment to the cause. The moment was bittersweet, but I can’t help but feel hopeful for the future. Her sacrifice has become a powerful tool for change, and she has shown the world that sometimes the greatest act of courage is to let go.
My family is in debt because they don’t understand the way we do things now. They can't properly recycle, and they use far too much energy. I have tried to talk to them about it, but bad habits are difficult for people to change. I love my life, my friends, and my family but if I was to enter one of The Phoenix Pods, it could make a difference. It could help my family become carbon neutral again. I could be reborn as part of the earth again, and my body can nourish the plants and animals in my local community. It’s a beautiful cycle.
The process itself is clean and efficient. Every part of the body is used to create sustainable resources that can help the rest of humanity thrive. Your body is turned into energy and fertilizer, and anything that can’t be used will be broken down over time. Finally, there is a message board online for only those who decide to use The Phoenix Pods, and you get to make one final statement. Something to leave behind for those who wish to remember your noble sacrifice, or a fond farewell to loved ones.
One would think that thoughts of suicide would have me emotionally distraught, but I feel a sense of peace. I have found a way to take responsibility for my actions, and to make a positive impact on the world around me. I know that not everyone will understand, but I do. Am I willing to do what was necessary to save The Earth? To set my family free? To give back some of what I have already taken?
As I read blogs and message boards, I realize that I'm not alone. There are others like me, who see the value in taking responsibility for our actions, and who want to make a positive impact. Together, maybe we could create change, and perhaps even inspire others to do the same. I know that my decision will not be easy, and that there will be those who will judge and condemn me for it. I also know that I am doing what is right, not just for myself, but for those who will come after me.
I researched the different types of pods available and came across some that are designed for multiple people. The idea of leaving this world with my friends by my side gives me a sense of comfort. We could support each other through the process and leave this world as a community. Are my friends having similar thoughts? Perhaps, we could make the decision together, and in doing so, create a ripple effect that would inspire others to take action in this wonderful act of bravery and love. Love for the planet, and love for those around me who would be impacted by my choices, and love for those who have yet to understand what we are fighting for.

2023.03.29 07:45 papyhus I feel othered in my grad school class

I'm currently an international student finishing up my first-year coursework for my Ph.D., and one of the classes is taught by a retiring White professor who is really well-established in the field (you know, like those with a Wikipedia page). The class is a literal mix of 50% East Asian international students and 50% White American students (lol diversity) and since day 1 I've been feeling iffy about how she deals with the class dynamics.
It first fell off when one of the classmates facilitated an entire discussion session calling out for comments from all the White students in the class first and only once she ran out of options moved on to the international students in the class. Something very minor, but the fact that the professor complimented her facilitation skills (not noticing the in-class dynamics) bummed me out a bit.
Given that this professor is old enough to retire, she's also bad at hearing. I'm someone with a small voice. She has no trouble hearing the other White students in the class with smaller voices, but has a hard time hearing my voice. I would've been fine with this had she not proceeded to email my advisors behind my back asking for advice because she sees it as a cultural thing (the way the email was framed, she asked my advisors what she should do because she can't hear me, and thus can't assess my participation, but doesn't want to be culturally insensitive by asking me to speak louder). I was very puzzled by why she just didn't speak to me directly.
The email got me very frustrated because I constantly feel that she sees me as a foreign student -- which I am, but it led me to be extra paranoid about trying to do everything right so that she doesn't frame things on my foreign identity. I really struggled to write up the exam essays for this reason (I felt a lot of pressure that they had to be perfect). After struggling for a while I asked for a two-day extension 4 days before the deadline and she said no.
So when I finally got my essay back, which she graded an A, but dropped to a B because I submitted it a day late, I cried. I can't explain where this frustration is coming from, or what exactly the term for this kind of feeling is. But I felt very much like an outsider. I approached her after class today to ask if we could meet sometime this week because there was a section of the lecture that I couldn't understand well because I wasn't used to the content area (which was psychobiology, I study cognitive psychology), she responded "am I talking too fast? Are you having a hard time understanding things because it's your second language?" (I'm bilingual, no noticeable accent) I just lost my words.
The thing is, I feel like she's being problematic, but I'm having a hard time putting a finger on what exactly it is she's doing and why it's hurting me. Is it just all in my head? Should I talk to her about this? Bring it up to my advisors/department? I'm hoping for some advice.

“Hate to break it to you friend but the USA is more similar culturally to Brazil than any European nation.”
On a tweet about gun deaths, obviously. This was posted after someone posted some graphs of USA gun related deaths vs southern American countries to prove the USA didn’t have a problem.

2023.03.29 07:44 notparkinglot Feeling trapped because of my driving anxiety.

I've had vehophobia for as long as I can remember, and I'm proud to say that I finally overcame it enough to drive very short distances. I primarily only drive to the grocery store and my current job - which are both less than 10 minutes away - and occasionally I will drive slightly longer distances if there is low traffic and good weather. While researching how to overcome phobias, I heard a quote that said "anxiety makes your world a small and scary place" because your comfort zone stays as small as possible. And as you push your comfort zone, your world gets bigger and brighter. Even though my world has gotten a little bit bigger, it still feels so small. I live with my parents in a big suburban neighborhood with very little public transportation. All of my friends' houses are at least 20- 30 minutes away from me, and require driving on the freeway, which means I only get to hang out with them if I can afford a Lyft there and back. And I fucking HATE my job to the point where I sit in my car and cry before going into work. (I work at Starbucks). I've applied to other food service places in my area and tons of remote jobs on Indeed but haven't gotten any responses. There was one retail job that I almost applied to that seemed like a healthier environment, but it's lower pay than my current job, and the drive is fucking long and scary! I successfully drove there one time on a day with perfect conditions, but I honestly can't see myself driving there during rush hour, when it's raining, at night, when I'm feeling really tired or anxious, etc. I know I would be wasting money taking Lyft to work every time I feel too scared, and I would be making less money to cover the cost. I don't know what to do - if I should stay at my current job that I hate but feel comfortable driving to, apply to this far away job even though it makes no logistical sense and would scare the shit out of me, or keep applying to remote jobs even though the chances of getting hired seem lower than winning the lottery at this point and might make me feel even more isolated than I already do. I feel so trapped and unhappy in my life, and it all seems to stem from anxiety. Sometimes I think of moving to a new city with better public transportation or walkability, but I have a lot of people I'm attached to here including my family, rent is astronomically high in the US, and I kind of love my home town minus the awful car dependency. I don't know.

2023.03.29 07:43 JayRupp Much better performance after update?

I went from a super stuttery 50 fps to a solid 100+ with much less stuttering. I've been reading a lot of comments from folks saying this patch messed up their performance, but this is the first time the game has even been playable for me. Has anyone else seen a nice improvement, or at the very least had consistent performance before and after the update? I really hope they iron all of this out. WH has already lost so many players over this.
Specs: i7-11700F, RTX 3080, 32 gigs DDR4, 1 TB SK hynix NVMe
Well, back to the game I've been waiting to play for over 2 months. Cheers!

2023.03.29 07:43 Neokyo7 Am I Okay?

Hello, I'm 16(M) I used to fap a lot. Not like 4 times daily, but it was once daily. I tried to do nofap and always failed the main problem was my thoughts when I think about porn and stuff I want to check it out and then I relapse. The most I can keep a streak is 3-6 days but I don't know but a week or two ago I just randomly stopped.
I was watching porn and felt a question arising in my mind.....Why?
On that day onwards I don't get sexual thoughts. I get disgusted and not even get excited over a sexy picture. I don't even feel like fapping anymore. I don't gets sexual thoughts when I see a beautiful Girl. Like my mind has become of one who is doing nofap for 1-2 years..
I didn't start anything like working out or meditation stuff. But the thing just stopped so randomly I don't believe it. I know about problems like ED but I don't have much knowledge.
Please if anyone knows what is wrong with me please tell....

2023.03.29 07:42 LynkinPark Looking for easy fantasy

I'm not a very experienced reader, I've read a few Dan Brown books and I just finished de first Mistborn trilogy by Brandon Sanderson. I really loved Mistborn and I already bought The Alloy of Law and Mistborn Secret History.
First I'd like to try-out and get into a different world before ging further with Brandon Sanderson's.
I've tried a lot of books where I couldn't get into. What I really enjoy is easy words and sentences. When I read a page, I want to feel like the story has moved somewhere, whereas I often find myself stuck in the describtion of clothing that barely matters or food that doesn't have much impact. The story itself can be thought-provoking. I haven't been more interested in a world/book before reading Brandon Sanderson and I'm looking for similar experiences with different writers.

2023.03.29 07:42 Altruistic-Cat707 Salvaging a relationship.

My first ever post so my apologies if I'm not doing it right..
My wife (33F) and I (35M) have a friend (26F) that we have grown close with over the past year and a half. Initially, she was fun and outgoing, which provided us with many good interactions and memories.
As we grew closer with her, she began to constantly interject with advice on our relationship, other friendships and careers. Often, this advice was somewhat strange and out of touch. Or generally offered a very basic solution to a complex topic that typically would not work while also being dismissive of how hard the situation really was. At first, it was more humorous than anything and seemed harmless and naive to the point we just attributed it to her lack of experience and being several years younger than us.
As this happened more and more, you could tell that she would "check out" when you were explaining the situations further as she was cuing up her next insightful comment or advice. As she became more comfortable with us, she would swiftly steer the conversation back to her own problems and issues while subtly downplaying what you were going through by sharing her hardships.
As the pattern continue she began to consistently "get onto" her boyfriend around us and seek affirmation for her stance on their own issues and drama. It seems playful but you can tell that this is the way they are at home and he is usually not wanting to have these conversations with other people which creates an uneasy environment.
Another aspect:
As an older, more established couple in our friend group with the best space for entertaining, we host the vast majority of our friend groups' social events. This can be costly when you are frequently providing food and drinks and we greatly appreciate when people help out but we know that it is part of hosting and do accept that there will be some added cost. However, when people consistently show up empty-handed and ask for food and drinks on a low-key night of playing board games or watching a movie, it can get frustrating.
We tried to subtly approach the situation by saying how much we appreciated when people did help contribute and how thoughtful it was. After a brief exchange, her final sentiment was, "some people like to host and some people like to be hosted." When we asked if we could do dinner at their place sometime, she said "if I have any extra money, I am probably going to spend it on myself or (her significant other)."
The real issue:
My wife has been dealing with an injury and two surgeries to help repair the damage, as well as mounting stress from work. Essentially, she's going through one of those hard times that life presents. As a result she has drawn back from many of her broader friendships and leans on a smaller group of friends. During this time, this friend has been trying to be there for her as much as possible, which is greatly appreciated. The problem is that she has become very competitive and combative with her during this time by disagreeing with her constantly, giving lots of unsolicited advice and making a point to highlight any time she is wrong about something. She also asks for her help and advice on things around her house and her career but rarely shows appreciation for anything she does.
With my wife's current situation, her friendship feels unrewarding and burdensome to the point that it often has a negative effect on her when they do spend time together 1 on 1. I want my wife to have a good support system and I don't want her to throw away one of the few close friends she has maintained.
TL;DR Our friend seems very self-centered and creates hostile environments for my wife and I am not sure how to help.

2023.03.29 07:42 tyl3ryik3s i have been planning for the end of my life and i’m scared.

 heavy topic for anyone not wanting to read. i’ve had a lot of heavy stuff going on in my life recently and i’ve been able to struggle though it. i thought i would be able to make it through it but the love of my life and i have recently went on a break without the assurance of getting back together in the end. i had realized how much i had planned my life with him. kids, a house, growing old. everything hit me that if we don’t get back together i don’t think i can live anymore. i came here because i can’t tell him and come off as emotionally abusing him but i felt so alone and wanted to talk to anyone about it. i’ve been writing letters and figuring out where i want my finances to go. even tried ranting to friends so they aren’t surprised when it happens, but i’m so scared. i’m scared of what death is truly like but i know i can’t live my life without him. i don’t know what kind of support i need or what i need to hear but i wanted to atleast try to get it off my chest.

2023.03.29 07:42 Cute_Beanie I really love my job but one of my coworkers is a homophobic sexist.

I work at my local McDonald's, I actually really like the work, it's only temporary while I take some online classes for a better job, but I'm enjoying my time there. The only problem is that one of my coworkers is insufferable. I've already told my GM about him, and it's been a week since. I don't think they are going to do anything about it since he's worked there a lot longer than me and one of my other coworkers said she reported him too but nothing came of it. Do I just keep my head down and try not to punch him in the mouth for his comments? Or should I try and contact the owners? I'm lost. Please help.
Ps. I work the kitchen with him and I'm a female. You can only imagine all the woman jokes from it.

2023.03.29 07:42 cyberkewl Preventing fires from happening VS jumping into fires and putting them out - which is the right approach?

I'm a senior technical support manager of a team of 10 and have recently noticed that other managers (and even their respective team members) gets more recognition and praises for what is known as "jumping into fires, then putting them out" rather than putting measures to prevent fires (or preventing a small fire from becoming a big one).
I wonder if it's a case of a norm in many workplaces and are there any advice on how to overcome this? For the record there are no KPI or goals on preventing fires in the first place (and I wonder, how do you have such goals when fires are not always something we could necessarily prevent, but there's definite ways to reduce occurrences and reduce how "big" the fire gets).
It feels like my team (and myself) become unsung heroes because the danger was NOT seen as it disappeared before it became an issue, but on the other hands on other managers and their team, the fire was really hot - they jumped in, put in their hours and saved the day. My team saved the day too, put in a lot of works to prevent the fire from happening or ensured that the fire was small but we were not noticed (how do you notice something that either didn't happen, or was small enough to ignore)?
Just wondering any thoughts and experiences in the area that you could share your wisdom. It feels with the effort being about the same (except it is more critical when the fire got big and you *have* to put it out VS systematically over time reduce the size of the fire or ensure it never come up in the first place), it might actually *logically* be better not to care about preventing fires (or reducing them) in the 1st place?
Thoughts, comments, suggestions, welcome.

2023.03.29 07:41 HiImMoonPie I need a fun urban fantasy

I’ve been dealing with a lot lately and I’m looking for something funny to escape into that’ll give me romance, giggles, and some semi decent plot.
Some of the books I’ve read that are what I’m looking for are Helen Harpers Slouch Witch series and I’ve read everything from K F Breene.

2023.03.29 07:41 StepwiseUndrape574 Huge GTA 6 Leak Claims Rockstar’s New RAGE9 Graphics Engine Is Incredible

Besides offering up chaotic open-world action, one thing that Rockstar's games have done ever since Grand Theft Auto III is push the envelope in terms of technology. This is somewhat debatable up to Grand Theft Auto IV, which stunned audiences with its mix of macro-scale simulation and micro-scale detail. GTA V and the newer Red Dead Redemption 2 have continued this tradition, and both are still capable of putting the hurt on modern PCs. That's largely thanks to their forward-looking design that integrates features that contemporary systems weren't really ready for when the released.
gtaonlinerain GTA V can still look startlingly realistic at times.
The thing is, even though it just got a re-release on the current-generation consoles, GTA V originally released in 2013. The game's still fun, of course, especially the online mode that has seen continual updates over the years. The technology behind the title is getting a little dated, though, and fans of the series are understandably chomping at the bit for a new release. Rockstar has confirmed that GTA VI (or at least, the next GTA game) is in the works, but as usual, the company hasn't released any information about the title, nor mentioned a release window.
The leaks and rumors that we've heard so far place a hypothetical "GTA VI" at the end of next year, or even in 2025. That's a lot of development time, even if the company only moved into active development in the middle of last year, as is supposedly the case. In a time when almost every other development house (from Square-Enix to CD Projekt Red) is moving to the Unreal Engine, it seems like Rockstar will thankfully stick with its own in-house tech, known as RAGE.
That bit of information comes from a tweet by Chris Klippel, who is among other things the creator of Rockstar Mag, a French-language gaming news site that focuses on topics surrounding Rockstar Games and its releases. You can see the tweet above. Chris says that he has been in touch with people who have seen the latest version of RAGE in action, and that its graphics engine is "assez incroyable." Chris describes the latest version as RAGE9, which is interesting; Rockstar doesn't talk about RAGE as a separate product from its games, likely because it doesn't license the tech.
gtaonlinearcade The arcade area added to GTA Online would look amazing with ray-traced lighting.
It's not hard to imagine what sort of features the game engine might include to warrant that description. Heavy usage of ray-traced graphics will go a long way toward impressive presentation, but based on what we've heard in the past about GTA VI, it seems likely that the latest RAGE might be more impressive in its ability to scale content from infinitesimal details all the way up to gigantic cityscapes. We've seen demonstrations of similar technology in Epic Games' Unreal Engine 5, and given the nature of "GTA", such capability would be perfectly suited to the games.
Another impressive characteristic in GTA VI might just be the NPC AI. Historically, Grand Theft Auto's NPCs have been extremely simple stand-ins mostly intended to give the scene a realistic look without having much in the way of personality or believable behavior. That could all change in the next GTA game, based on a patent filed in October 2020.
From what we've heard, the next Grand Theft Auto title will be set in Vice City once again, so look forward to exploring the city's tropical environs. No word on the chronological setting, though; it could be set as far back as the Cuban Missile Crisis, or it could be set in the modern day. We also don't know necessarily what platforms the title will appear for, but based on Rockstar's history, we'd expect it to be available for the PS5 and Xbox before it appears on PC later.

2023.03.29 07:41 xmt0991 Fair market value for trade-in GTI

How to best assess trade-in value?
I'm getting a lot of conflicting info between KBB and other sources like Autotrader. My 2018 Volkswagen GTI SE has 52,800 miles and is coming in with a private party KBB range of 20.5-22.5K (I'm in CA), but I heard in practice people will pay above that range given the car market is weird right now. There was an accident (minor damage - repaired read bumper after an accident) that may take this to KBB "good" status. I'm getting quotes from a dealership for 19.5K but they're also knocking off a good deal off the price of a new vehicle to compensate for this (lowest end of KBB dealership value) or 4K below MSRP. Given the hassle saved should I just take this deal or try my hand at a sale? And how can I best appraise my vehicle beyond actually listing it on Craigslist? I'm worried they'll reduce the terms if I withdraw my trade-in. Thanks so much in advance.

2023.03.29 07:41 Gen5GG Why is Duvy not mainstream yet?

I been bumping his tunes for a minute and they keep getting better and better the guy is crazy with his wordplay, flow, his beat selection is mod, he’s consistent and his visuals are super nice too. I know he’s up there as a Toronto artist but I feel like he deserves so much more recognition. Do u think if he was from America he would be more up there? I personally think he’s a lot better than 70% of American artists.

2023.03.29 07:41 tux_pirata The tiktok bill its not about tiktok, its about everything, including you

I know not a lot of people here cares about privacy and some are even touting the old (and dumb) "nothing to hide" argument, but this shit its insane: it gives the yank gov the ability to go after anyone they consider a national security risk at which point they can access everything from their computer to game console, phone, alexa, social media, banking, payments, messaging, everything
Dont believe me? then read this bro
And if they catch you doing something they dont like they can put you in jail for 20 years, fine you $1 million and seize your property, you sure you got "nothing to hide"?
Oh and say goodbye to the freedom of information act too because you are not getting that back either
In case its not clear: this is not about tiktok, they could ban that for all I care, shit, ban all social media!, but again, not about tiktok, that's a ruse, an excuse. this is about passing whats a patriot act on steroids for the internet, its going to destroy the free web forever
So FFS if you're a yank do something, and before you ask its not a dnc vs gop think, both sides are supporting this shit so you better let the people in those lists know this shit its pure totalitarianism and you're not okay with it
