In this guide, I'm going to walk you through how to build the Emesh from start to finish. This was originally built by the one and only Minty love. His youtube channel is absolutely packed with great information regarding DMT and how to consume it as well as troubleshooting Teks. He also has his new website up called Mintylove.com which is packed with a ton of information on various vape builds, carts, and more. It's a library of content You won't be disappointed in! Unfortunately, his Reddit account is gone so in honor of him and the remarkable device that he shared with us all, I'm going to teach you how to build it and where I've found the parts to build it. The parts for the Emesh are very hard to find. I can't guarantee that the parts linked in this write-up will be in stock. However, if you feel like embarking on a quest and seeing what's available in your local area, this guide will explain everything you need. This device is hands down my favorite way to enjoy spice. It's compact, efficient, and very easy to use, especially when you're leaving your body behind.
Since the Emesh allows you to ingest your desired dose in one very smooth hit, it's a great way to conserve and get the most out of your spice while achieving that breakthrough experience every time! With all due respect to the great Terrence McKenna, 3 big tokes are a thing of the past and I'm sure he would have loved to get his hands on one of these.
The Emesh allows you to break through in one hit on surprisingly small doses which means your extraction yields go a lot further. Altogether this setup will on average cost about 100 USD depending on your local prices, taxes, and shipping costs. It's not the cheapest option on the market but I assure you it's worth every penny if you can find the parts. If you're looking for the best way to ingest your precious spice and finally get that breakthrough, you found it! There is absolutely nothing like it! I get asked all the time what the best way is to enjoy spice and, in my opinion, the Emesh leaves all other methods at the starting line.
In this guide, we are going to build it from the bottom up. I'm going to provide links to every single piece needed for this build as well as pictures and alternative options in case availability is an issue. Thanks for all your support and I hope this write-up brings you value.
GIVEAWAY ANNOUNCEMENT! Upon the release of this post, members of dmtguide will have their chance to win one of the 4 brand-new mesh RDA's I have been sitting on for this occasion. I have 4 of the extremely scarce Mesh RDA's that I will be giving out to 4 lucky members along with a few extra goodies from myself. Over the years I have been Honored to be a part of such an amazing community. All the support and love I have received from you guys and gals has been nothing less than amazing. This giveaway is going to mark the first of many giveaways that I'll be doing.
you can find a link to enter the giveaway in the comments or head over to my profile and all the details will be in a post pinned to the top of my profile titled "Emesh RDA giveaway". With that being said, Let’s begin..

#1 The power supply


https://preview.redd.it/paelsdp4dmqa1.jpg?width=3000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=ef322a853c20a5f73a07a9362c5f0e1ed407aa1e
The most common battery used for the Emesh is the GeekVape Ageis solo / solo 2. I've used this power supply for a long time with zero issues. The battery itself runs about $60 to $80 USD depending on the vendor, Taxes and shipping. The build quality is amazing and durable. They come in a variety of colors so you can customize your personal set up. The Ageis solo / solo 2 comes with temperature control as well as adjustable wattage so you can get a perfect, controlled hit, every time. This battery is available at most smoke and vape shops around the USA. I recommend checking out your local vape shop before buying online because it's a very popular battery. However, if you want to buy it online, I bought mine Here. If they are out of stock, just google search the Geekvape Ageis solo / solo 2 and I'm sure you will easily find another vendor that sells this particular battery. In reality, any 100w box mod battery will do However, the Geekvape is particularly known for the temperature control setting. It's not 100% needed though as long as you have a box mod with adjustable wattage. Personally, I don't use temperature control on my battery and prefer to just use wattage mode.

#2 The Mesh RDA or (Rebuildable Drip Atomizer)

https://preview.redd.it/ay112629dmqa1.jpg?width=3000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=365c079514d94d8260abd03839366ecd3e40398b
This is hands down the toughest part of the build and is going to be unlikely you find one in all honesty. It's the most difficult to find and what I get asked about the most. The reason why it is so hard to find is because the mesh RDA is dated technology and all the good companies basically discontinued it. They moved on to producing new versions like RBA's, RTA's, RDTA's, and so on. Luckily China is still producing Knock off brand RDA's that work just as well as the name brands. You just don't get the warranty with them. They are, however, very cheap so I always recommend buying a few extras just to have on hand in the future when mesh RDA's are just as hard to find as an original Pink Floyd vinyl. A few of the most common RDA's that will work with this build are...
  1. Digiflavor mesh pro 25mm RDA
  2. Wotofo Profile Rda
  3. Vandy vape mesh RDA
  4. Wotofo x Mr.justRight1 profile
As I mentioned before, this will be the hardest part of the build. Some of these links listed above are going to be first come first serve and I can't 100% guarantee that you will get an RDA by following them because once I publish this, supplies are going to eventually run out as more people follow these exact links. However, keep checking back for them to restock. I do recommend that you start your search on wish or AliExpress as most of these style RDAs are going to be China reproductions. A mesh RDA is all you're looking for. If you absolutely cannot find a mesh RDA there are other options out there that are great alternatives. D-juice tanks are another common option and a better option than the sandwich method. If this seems more reasonable to you then definitely check out mintylove.com he has great videos with step-by-step build instructions. However, this post is for the Emesh so I'm not going to get into tanks and carts here.

#3 The stainless-steel mesh for your RDA


https://preview.redd.it/v3c7k3eddmqa1.jpg?width=3000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=82c7f454ecd844e4c0f340e190a1efd37026437f
This is eventually going to be hard to find as well because it is dated tech. However, currently, I buy mine here. This is #150 mesh, 0.9ohm, SS316l. It used to sell in 5-foot spools which is enough to last you a very long time. Its quickly becoming discontinued and out of stock as the Emesh gained popularity. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on a spool, you're set for a while! This mesh will fit into your RDA and provide the platform on which you will load the spice. There is a variety on the market, and you don't have to get the Vandy vape brand. Since mesh is becoming hard to find as well, people have turned to amazon and bought sheets of stainless-steel mesh to cut down themselves. Personally, I haven't tried this method so I can't speak to its authenticity. However, if it's your only option it might be worth a try. Just make sure to be safe and test everything before use. A simple test can be a dry fire with your battery and atomizer to make sure it functions properly and doesn't let off fumes or smoke (after burning off the factory oil of course). Just make sure it is truly what amazon advertises it as.

#4 The extended glass drip tip / 810 to 510 adapter

https://preview.redd.it/mga1hd9gdmqa1.jpg?width=3000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7bb25a8e21204747d068c6c8426c6823a5ab0563
The drip tip is an extended mouthpiece that will keep your lips away from the hot coil when you smoke. The drip tip comes in two sizes, 810 and 510. The 810 sizes will fit in the top hole on your RDA without the need for an adapter however, if they are out of stock or you can't find one, you can get the 510 sizes and pair it with an 810 to 510 reducing adapter. Currently, you can find drip tips on wish or Aliexpress. If you can't find an 810 size, then you will need this adapter to make the 510 size work. Most of my local vape shops haven't carried the extended mouthpiece but as always I encourage you to look around at your local shops to see what they might have in stock.

conclusion

I hope this helped you understand the Emesh a little more and hopefully made your search for parts a little easier. As I said, I can't guarantee that these links will lead you to success but at least you will know where to look for restocking. With enough persistence and effort, I'm sure you can eventually piece this very sought-after device together. It is definitely worth the effort I can assure you. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me a DM and ill try to get back to you in a timely manner. I appreciate the support and I hope you get something out of this write-up. Be sure to check out mintyloves website and youtube for alternative ways to consume your spice. good luck in the giveaway!
As always, best wishes, stay safe, and keep exploring!

2023.03.29 08:02 NoSupermarket6218 In a new relationship abroad but I still can not get over my ex

I met my (28) ex (28) around 4 years ago in a dating app, we started as purely friends because we lived in different cities, but we were talking everyday and eventually we became very close, specially during the pandemic, at that point it was like being in an unofficial long distance relationship, we were doing video calls everyday and looking out for each other.
Eventually we got the chance to spend some days together in person and we finally had intimacy and it was great, we had the time of our lives. The only problem is that I knew that I was going to move to USA in one year since I had an offer for my dream job, but that didn’t stop him from asking me to be his boyfriend. I was seriously concerned about the distance (since I had tried before and failed miserably hurting everyone involved) but he told me that we would figure it out and I decided to trust him.
We were a regular couple for about a year and it was awesome, but during that time I was looking into ways for he to come with me, none of them was a real option at the time though, unless he worked towards getting his own visa, which he didn’t do at all (lately he would tell me he got diagnosed with executive dysfunction) and it would had taken more than a year anyway. The only option to stay together was to get married and for he to come as a dependent without being able to work at all, which sounded extremely risky and would have put a lot of pressure on me.
So we didn’t get married and he didn’t get his own visa and I moved to USA alone, and a couple months afterwards and without plans to be together, we eventually broke up (he broke up with me to set me free and I agreed).
After that it was really turbulent and confusing, he was giving me very confusing signals. We kept talking regularly and occasionally flirting, but he would say things like “I’m sure you’re the love of my life and I don’t care if you get married, I’m going to win you back eventually” and “We are never getting back together because I don’t want to feel that unloved again”. He got even more extreme creating a elaborated long term plan to get his own visa, improve his appearance and win be back but also abruptly deciding to date someone else over trivial stuff like me not asking how his day was going.
With all theses mixed signals I started assuming it was not meant to be since he didn’t work to make it happen and he was changing his mind really quickly. So I started dating seriously again 6 months after our oficial break up. (After also talking to my therapist, since it was tough to be in a new country alone and I was going through more stuff).
I met a really cute and smart guy (28) and we happened to get along greatly. It is his first relationship (and first time having intimacy) so he wanted to go very slowly, and it was perfect for me because I was not completely over my ex, and also he is relatively young and learning about relationships and we both had uncertainty about our long term future, so I thought it was the perfect match for a temporary relationship with the potential of becoming a long term thing if things went well.
I told my ex about the new guy out of respect for both, and he didn’t take it well but he kept working on himself and trying to move on. (While still making clear that his plans to move to the same city were still on)
Some months ago I went to my home country for the holidays and he told me he has a new boyfriend (35), and I didn’t take it well. That’s when I realized that I had been unconsciously sabotaging my new relationship (for example, avoiding making it official, or saying “I love you” despite being dating for almost a year) because I was still waiting for my ex to “win me back”.
It’s been 4 months since I found out about the new relationship, and I am taking therapy, but I haven’t been able to move on, I’m terribly anxious and depressed and I’m not able to be productive at work at all. The fact that I work in tech and I know there will be more layoffs at my company soon (forcing me to go back to my country) doesn’t help. I’m not even sure why I feel this way, but I think there are several factors and all of them make me feel overwhelmed and like a shitty person.
  1. My ex’s new boyfriend makes me feel insecure, he is a lot like me but he is older, taller, cuter, a doctor and in general seems to be a great guy and a good person. It hurts like hell to think that the love of my life and who swore to win be back not matter what, replaced me with an “upgrade”.
  2. I still see my ex as the love of my life. After all these years and the awesome chemistry we have in both personality and sex, being each others first true love, same age, same height, each other’s type, similar occupations and disorders (adhd and neurodivergents). I know we’re not perfect but I want to marry him and take care of him and have him in my life forever, I truly think we had the purest love but we made stupid decisions. And I think he might feel the same way but he is still trying to move on for whatever reason (including that distance is still an issue).
But also I think I might be holding on to him, because he is the most stable thing I’ve had in my life and my work situation is making my whole life unstable. A part of me wants to get laid off so we can be in the same country, or to propose, and I know…that’s intense.
  1. I feel shitty for feeling this way while being in a new relationship, since all this started I was thinking of letting my current boyfriend know and even break up, but people advised me not to do it, since I would only hurt him and maybe destroy the awesome relationship I have now.
But also, could all this be a reflection of my unhappiness in my new relationship? The guy is great, he is a catch and husband material, I feel extremely lucky to have him in my life. But I’m not completely satisfied in some aspects of our relationship…
* We don’t do as many things together as I would like to (I always go to my friend’s parties alone, for instance)
* Sexual chemistry is not the best…. For example it takes me a long time to finish with him, I consider him objectively very attractive but since he is not physically my usual type he doesn’t turn me on as much as my ex or other guys, and also there are things we cannot physically do at all like me being the bottom (phimosis) and he has no intentions of trying to make it work soon. And it sucks to feel this way, because I do think he is very hot.
* He is a grad student, so he doesn’t have much time or money to do fun stuff together like going out or traveling (and he doesn’t want me to pay), we meet at most twice a week and we mostly stay in. It makes me a bit frustrated because I wanted to enjoy what’s left of my twenties now that I’m finally making decent money and I can’t do it with my boyfriend.
So I don’t know, I feel like the right thing to do is to break up with my current boyfriend, tell my ex how I feel and if he doesn’t feel same way, look for another partner that hopefully satisfies me in what is important for me in a boyfriend right now. I feel shallow but those things are driving me crazy.
Bu I’m afraid of going through another breakup I will regret and of letting unrealistic expectations ruin a good relationship, and maybe end up alone and in a worse place. I do think my current boyfriend is truly special and I’ll never find someone like him, we’re a pretty good match despite those issues.

2023.03.29 08:01 gaythey Lights triggering flare ups

Hey all, firstly, I want to mention that I have not officially been diagnosed, but in checking a lot of boxes, I have suspicions for POTs. I’m hoping for a a better evaluation April 12 (background: my heart rate fluctuates immensely and will not be caught when measured solely in the certain intervals of a stand test, necessarily, which I believe was attempted by one provider a few months ago). Among my symptoms, my migraines have been some of the most debilitating. I’m currently on leave from work over them as it is at the point that I haven’t been able to really deal with lights or spend more than maybe an hour on an actual computer. The other day, I made the mistake of thinking I’d be okay in target, even with a hat and glasses that are supposed to be tinted to an FL-41 lens. In somehow only minutes, I still found myself in headache, dizzy, light-headed, unbalanced, brain fog, nauseous, and all— breathing, palpapatations, these two issues maybe more my anxiety by this point as I just needed to cry over how all I wanted was a lamp so I could try to use my kitchen again (I legit haven’t cooked because I can’t stand to be in there because of the overhead light); the lamp I just tried to buy online was too small for this migraine light bulb I tried to buy online, and I thought this cute t-rex lamp would make me feel better about how shitty i’ve been feeling— it said this lamp was at the store and now it wasn’t even there, so my mission was unsuccessful and I felt sick, and I couldn’t even manage to walk around and get food to have in my apt while I was there with my partner. I just needed to leave.
Anyway, I guess I’ve been thinking about this all and my question for folks is: has anyone experienced lights and screens flaring up their symptoms? I add screens as well thinking things such as migraines and dizziness going hand in hand, really, all these symptoms sometimes attacking simultaneously. Perhaps a secondary question would be, if not lights triggering your symptoms, specifically, do you ever find that one symptom (ie migraines) trigger others, such as brain fog and dizziness?

Certified manufacturers have proven that their products are produced in accordance with the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) standards and other industry regulations and guidelines. This ensures that these bolts meet all required performance criteria, as well as any additional safety requirements set by the manufacturing facility or customer. Certified suppliers also take into account quality control measures when producing heavy hex structural bolts. These measures involve rigorous testing procedures such as fatigue tests, hardness tests, impact tests, corrosion tests and dimensional accuracy checks among others – ensuring that each manufactured batch meets or exceeds expected performance levels before being made available on the market. Due to its unique design features compared to traditional fasteners like screws and nuts & washers; Heavy Hex Structural Bolts boast superior strength which makes them ideal for both indoooutdoor applications alike where high tension forces need be maintained over long periods of time without failure risk due to loosening or wear & tear damage resulting from continuous operation cycles e.g., infrastructure structures subjected vibration stresses from traffic flow etc. In addition, many industrial sectors around Quebec prefer using these fasteners instead of plain steel counterparts for increased resistance against abrasion effects caused by salt water exposure during marine construction work activities amongst other reasons .

2023.03.29 07:51 MS1962 Danger: no guns in Sydney

Dear Lachlan,
You are taking too much risking living in Sydney with your family as the Australian government has banned assault guns. Unless good guys have guns, the bad guys with guns will make everyone unsafe. The US with over 400m guys in private ownership (more than 1 per person) would be a far safer environment than Sydney. Particularly, the red states of the USA which allow concealed carry, etc is where you should move to. Please think about your family and move to the US where you have made society so much stronger by having FoxNews fight against gun control. Murray.

2023.03.29 07:43 hikari8807 HDB price trends

HDB price trends
During 1990s, the location was not so important. Like today, Bishan and Bukit Timah had the most expensive resale flats, but a thing less known by the young generation, is that Choa Chu Kang and Pasir Ris were also among expensive estates. Mature towns like Queenstown, Toa Payoh and Ang Mo Kio were cheaper.
Larger flats types had higher price per square meter or feet than small flats, in 1990-1992 average resale price of Executive flats being double than average resale price of 4-room flats, at an area 40% larger.
HDB stopped deciding the prices of new apartments based on construction costs, instead they decided based on market prices. Prices of resale flats and new flats entered in a vicious circle, rising 50% in just 6 months of 1993 and tripled to 1996. The gap between small and large flat types in terms of price per square feet has decreased.
The 1997 Asian Crisis came when 80.000 flats were under construction, demand for new flats felt sharply. leaving HDB with about 40,000 unsold completed flats in the year 2000, mostly large flat types. 2003 SARS outbreak affected economy too. Queue selling system (Registration for Flat) was suspended in 2002, Build-To-Order was introduced to prevent oversupply, and Walk-In-Selection was used between 2002 and 2007 to clear the stock of unsold flats.
The old estates built in 1960s and 1970s suffered from dilapidated buildings, aging population and businesses moving out, so HDB launched various upgrading programmes and Selective En-bloc Redevelopment Scheme to bring them in the line with new estates. Resale flat prices in old estates (where most 3-room are located) started rising in 2002, while in new estates they continued to fall until 2006, Executive flats having biggest fall. Price per square foot between small and large flat types equalized in 2005.
Walk-In Selection ended in 2007 and was replaced by Sale of Balance Flats that is only twice per year and in some towns more than 10 people battle per each flat. BTO became main mode of flat supply. People who cannot wait 3-4 years construction time for BTO and fail at SBF, need to go in resale market. Resale prices started rising.
Prices grew faster in pre-1980 estates fueled by upgrading programmes and agents lying people that all old blocks will get SERS, making prices in Marine Parade, Queenstown, and Toa Payoh to rival those in with Bishan and Bukit Timah. Pasir Ris had lowest price growth.
Singapore economy recovered in late 2000s but HDB failed to anticipate, it ramped up the BTO supply too late and too slow, they offered 5500 BTO flats in 2007, 7800 in 2008, 9000 in 2009 (global recession), 12000? 16000 in 2010, 22000 25000 in 2011, 25000 27000 in 2012, plus DBSS flats and Executive Condos. (strikethrough numbers are initial numbers announced at beginning of year).
Rising supply of BTO became visible in 2012, a small reduction in resale prices growing rate. HDB lowered minimum application rate for BTO to be built from 70% to 50% in 2011, but since mid-2000s to 2013 no BTO had application rate under 100% (except elderly Studio BTO flats).
Analysts predicted that the prices in Singapore will start dropping in 2012 (example), as they predicted in 2011, 2010 too. In my forecast, resale flat prices will NOT fall even in 2012, but will continue to grow for as many years as HDB refuse to build ahead of demand, forcing us to wait 4 years via BTO!
HDB introduced multiple measures to cool down the market, but all failed, for example Minimum Occupation Period lengthen to 5 years for resale flats in 2011 (does anyone know when 5-year MOP was introduced for new flats?) just made less flats to enter resale market and the number of people not eligible for buying directly from HDB (for example PR and singles) is growing.
Most of BTOs launched in the 3 years 2009, 2010, 2011 been completed in only 2 years 2013-2014… 25000 flats completed in 2014 alone + 5 years MOP = possible market crash in 2019. I am not saying that prices will not start to fall earlier, but 2019 may have the biggest price fall (if other variables would not exist).

2023.03.29 07:36 BeautifulAwareness54 Help deciding on a plate carrier

Let me start by saying my only experience with Plate Carriers and Sappi plates are from being in the Marine Corps. All I know are the basics, but I’m a civilian now and I want to get something for myself since the Nazis are back. After googling through a lot of gross conservative garbage groups, I came to the conclusion that apparently Crye Precision makes the best plate carriers, however their designs look really alien to me and a little bit confusing like their AirLite SPC.
Money isn’t the issue but I want something that can hold side plates too while not being overpriced garbage. I also saw the AR500 Tetsudo Gen 2 looking familiar enough.
Any thoughts or recommendations? Again I want something that isn’t over priced junk, I’ll spend a pretty penny as long as the product is worth it.

Hello its my first time making a post in this community, I hope I don't fuck up too much.
I've been working on digital design for over 7 years by now, I just finished reading the last published chapter of this project and wanted to make some cool military style logos for some of the groups that came up while reading.

Hello all, I’m a 54yo nurse and former Marine who has just been diagnosed with colorectal cancer. I’ve been so sick that I haven’t worked in the last five months - the diagnosis was made three weeks ago, and explains all of my symptoms. I’m a travel nurse, so keeping health insurance active has always been very hard. I’ve set up a modest gofundme, hoping to defray some of the costs of treatment. Please share if you’re willing. Thank you for reading

Tourmaline in a beach rock
Found this large rock on a Southern California shore. Looks to have an embedded crystal. I'm wondering whether to keep it as is, or to try to extract to see what's hiding!

2023.03.29 07:22 Quinzerrak What if, during the 1960s, the USSR economically reformed to become something similar to Yugoslavia's Market Socialism?

I am unsure how exactly that would've been realistically preferred by either Khrushchev or Brezhnev, but let's just say Khrushchev realises that in order for their communist empire to remain strong and on par with America's mighty economy, they must reform their economy to allow for more flexibility by moving away from centralised decisionmaking and towards a more market-friendly structure that can still work within the confines of socialism. What I mean is the unique economic system that Josip Tito's Yugoslavia experimented on during the middle of its lifespan where market mechanisms are used to keep a socialist economy growing. Now, I don't mean the reforms Deng Xiaoping made for China in 1978 which eventually resulted in it shifting towards authoritarian capitalism entirely, I mean the kind that Yugoslavia made because the Yugoslavian and Chinese economies don't operate under the same system. IF -- and I really mean a GARGANTUAN """IF""" -- Khrushchev was pragmatic enough to abolish economic planning in favour of an economic model similar to Yugoslavia's, how would that impact the rest of twentieth-century history? Would the USSR still survive today as an absolute superpower as formidable as the USA?

2023.03.29 07:20 buffalohuntington Divesting WLL after holding for 10+ yrs

First time poster - might be in the wrong sub - for this type of question but did read the rules and my question doesn’t seem to be in violation.
I Made a large investment in WLL in 2014. Hoped to buy and hold but the company shot up, then did some type of stock dilution, tanked, rebranded and have a new name (CHORD ENERGY CORP it looks like). My original investment now sits at ~-99.8% loss and shows as WLLAW and WLLBW type shares.
What is the best way to get out of this investment? Wait until it is advantageous for me to tax harvest the loss, bite the bullet and just sell the remaining value. Or some other strategy I might not know of or understand. yet?
I know i lost huge using this strategy on a Whiting Petroleum through their downfall. At this point I just want to find the best way to part ways with this failure.
So just wanted to poll the people with skills above mine for advice. Thanks!

2023.03.29 06:58 SirPiecemaker The Wormhole Worm

To even the most casual of observers, it was immediately clear that Leo was not just an ordinary earthworm. While few would notice the light tells like the oddly aware way he inspected his surroundings and unusually graceful movement, none could overlook the spiffy top hat resting on top of his... well, front end. Even if someone were to assume that someone merely decided to put a tiny hat on a worm for fun, those conceptions would be dashed aside the moment he wriggled his body to open an interdimensional portal in front of him and wriggled into it in search of adventure.
The calmness of the meadow was disturbed ever so slightly when a small blue portal appeared near the ground, accompanied by the sound similar to cloth being torn, and a worm plopped out of it. Leo looked around his surrounding to see where he had ended up this time. Seeing the tall grass, the cool dirt, the clear sky... everything about it felt familiar; like a home he never knew. He could feel that this place was perfect for many other earthworms; he also realised that this made it the perfect hunting ground for animals that would feast upon them.
Such as the bird that had locked onto him just seconds after he arrived. It flew into action with staggering speed intent on consuming Leo whole, top hat or not. Its wings made barely any sound. Most would not hear it at all, but it did not get past Leo's honed senses. He turned towards the hastily approaching predator and with the lightest of movements opened up another portal right between him and the feathered attacker. The bird had no time to react, no time to adjust course, and flew straight in, disappearing. Leo took one last look around the meadow and squirmed into the other side of the portal.
Seconds later, another portal opened up a few meters away and out of it flew a very confused bird that decided it'd be best to ignore the entire affair.
As soon as Leo exited his new portal, he knew something was amiss, different. He felt... weightless, and noticed his top hat started to float away. He coiled his body around it, securing it, and looked around, finding a window with the grandest of views he had ever seen.
It was a void of blackness in the centre of which was a planet of green and blue, clouds covering massive portions of it. He could see how the wind moved these clouds around, how they shifted, merged, split, a ballet of movement that gave a whole new meaning to the weather he was used to. It was a most enjoyable sight - one that was again cut short when he realized he was being watched. He turned his body towards the observer - a man floating in the air, his hair standing above his hand as if he was floating in water. From his open mouth and wide-eyed look, it was more than obvious the man did not expect to see an earthworm. Deciding not to cause any trouble, Leo quietly opened another portal, but having no control over the speed of his movement, the two awkwardly stared at one another as Leo slowly floated towards the small blue circle and finally disappeared.
Following the bird's line of thinking, the man rubbed his eyes and looked again, seeing nothing - certainly not an earthworm. Perhaps he was too tired and mistook a shadow for something else. After all, how could an earthworm be on the ISS? Preposterous.
Leo's latest portal took him to a comfortable apartment in a highrise. Finding himself right next to a window, he looked out and saw something he had never seen before. A city - but not one made out of mushrooms and roots, but metal and glass. The building he found himself in must have been among the tallest as he could see far and wide and admire the different rooftops and streets, the busy traffic and pedestrians making it seem like a gigantic beehive. Though it was not as familiar as the meadow and not as grand as the strange floaty place, it was oddly enchanting to Leo. He spent the most time here, though that was partially because no one interrupted his observations. When he finally had his fill, he decided to open one final portal and squirmed into it.
The destination on the other end was familiar. The top of a hill with an exquisite view of the bioluminescent fungal city he knew so well. Not too from where he landed sat a girl that turned around and noticed his arrival.
"Leo!" she said with a smile. "There you are. Exploring again?"
Leo merely inched towards her without responding - with the two knowing each other so well, the question was clearly rhetorical. She smiled and picked him up, putting him on her shoulder. He coiled up and rested. It was a good day. He saw new places, met new creatures, but in the end...
There's no place like home.




This story is about Leo the Earthworm, a recurring character in commissions I do.

2023.03.29 06:49 ThrowRAfottore My (34m) girlfriend (41f) of just over a year has confessed to infidelity in her past relationship, but it just keeps getting worse through trickle-truths. I’m hurt by her lies and I’m not sure what to do.

My girlfriend and I have been together for just over a year. We’ve known each other for 4 years (met at work) but just started dating last March. I do love her but I have some concerns that are increasingly worrisome.
She was married at the time, and I was recently divorced. She let me know that she was working on filing for an amicable and mutually agreeable divorce, so I decided to go with it. She officially got divorced 2 months after we started dating and moved into her own place. Together since.
Throughout our relationship, she’s let me know things that caused some pretty large red flags. First, she let me know that she had cheated on her ex-husband a handful of times. She told me about 4 times:
-Once at 25 with a friend. It was a 4-month fling, purely physical.
-Again at 26. It was a one night stand.
-Then at 30, and she told me it was just a few hookups with a friend she met while out.
-Another time with a woman.
-And I guess technically with me, while she was just about to divorce, since she was technically married.
She told me she that she cheated because her ex-husband was absent during her marriage and she was checked out for 15 of the 20 years they were together. She said it was a dead bedroom. He was a Marine, and was always either training on the base or deployed in Iraq. Stayed because she was dependent on him and didn’t want to disrupt the life of her small child at the time. She filed for divorce once the kid moved out for college.
In the last few months, however, some of these stories have evolved into more than they were presented to me. I had to press her on these. She denied that there was any more to these stories but then it was trickle-truthed to me as I asked more and more questions:
-The fling at 30 was revealed to not be someone she met while out, but actually a coworker. Then, a month ago, she confessed that it was actually a 3-month affair. THEN, 2 weeks ago, she admitted that it was for an entire year and they met up several times a week for sex behind her husband’s back while he was on the military base.
-She confessed to me that she had another fling with a mutual coworker of ours shortly before we started dating. I had no idea about this. I even asked her in the beginning if she had hooked up with anyone at our office and she said no. I actually went into her old phone due to a suspicion and found messages that proved this. When I confronted her, she admitted to this. Not proud of my snooping, but I feel justified. A few weeks later, she also drunkenly confessed to sexting him while we were hanging out in the beginning but not actually dating or exclusive. But she was telling her she wanted him and told him she wanted to give him oral sex via text message literally while we were at dinner together.
-She also confessed to kissing/making out with 5-10 different guys throughout her marriage while out with friends at bars and stuff.
-The other thing she told me, which wasn’t too big of a deal (other than the fact that it was a lie) was that she lied about her number of sexual partners in the past. She said she had a series of hookups in college to get revenge on her boyfriend during a break. She had sex with her boyfriend’s friend and his friend’s brother. In addition to some random oral sex performed on different men.
-She also was caught in a lie involving her ex-husband recently. He texted her asking to go on a lunch date and she told me about it weeks later, stating that she declined but also deleted the message so I wouldn’t be cinc
All of this has trickled out throughout our relationship and at this point, I’m not sure if I can recover from this. Whatever happened before us is her business, but the fact that she lied to my face when I asked her questions about these things, then gave me trickle truths, are very unsettling and it makes me question whether I can trust her.
Also, the more I think about her infidelity, I get concerned about her ability to remain faithful to me. She swears that she doesn’t ever see herself cheating on me, loves me like she hasn’t loved anyone before, and tells me that our sex life fulfills her in every way possible.
When I bring these things up to her and tell her I’m hurt and have some concerns, she gets super defensive and says that I’ve lied too. Which I have… I got caught several months ago ordering DoorDash for my ex-wife because she texted and asked me to send some food to the house for the kids because she was busy. I hid that from her and she brings it up to prove that “she isn’t the only one who has lied”.
I love this woman, and I’m trying to reconcile who I thought she was with who I have learned she is now, but I’m having trouble doing so. I’m afraid that I won’t be able to trust her, and that she won’t be able to be honest with me about things. She’s shown that she can lie to my face. She told me she lied only because she was embarrassed, ashamed, and felt guilty about these things and didn’t want me to judge her for her past.
Do you think it’s worth trying to make this work? I absolutely love her, but I’m afraid I’ll begin to resent her lying eventually. I’m hurt and feel (objectively) that I may be making excuses for her behavior and shouldn’t be.
Tl;Dr: Girlfriend made me aware of her previous affairs in the beginning, but has slowly provided more and more details and events as I’ve pressed her for more info. She lied to my face about many details that have gradually been brought to light.

I’m afraid that I won’t be able to trust her, and that she won’t be able to be honest with me about things. She’s shown that she can lie to my face. She told me she lied only because she was embarrassed, ashamed, and felt guilty about these things and didn’t want me to judge her for her past.
Do you think it’s worth trying to make this work? I absolutely love her, but I’m afraid I’ll begin to resent her lying eventually. I’m hurt and feel (objectively) that I may be making excuses for her behavior and shouldn’t be.
Tl;Dr: Girlfriend made me aware of her previous affairs in the beginning, but has slowly provided more and more details and events as I’ve pressed her for more info. She lied to my face about many details that have gradually been brought to light.

2023.03.29 06:40 Improbable_Primate The Post Singularity Bronze Age

This is me drawing some boundaries around some ideas I’ve been having and putting them all in a basic order. Anyway, this is my very, very barebones timeline of events that the religious and mythological beliefs in my setting are based off of. I finally got Mr. Potato head out of the box, now I have to put a hat and face on him.
Feel free to comment. This is still a box getting kicked around the laundry room.
In the deep past, humanity actually survived its self-made existential threats and achieved technological god hood. No one remembers if the inciting technology was AI or free energy or something truly exotic, but almost overnight human suffering became an obsolete idea. Centuries of environmental damage, thought to be our imminent doom, was reversed in decades. Hunger and poverty were eliminated and every person on Earth could live a life of leisure free from illness and disease.
Old age and death became completely optional. Many people chose to modify their forms heavily or even transcend to pure digital consciousness. These post-humans primarily chose to leave Earth and spread through out the solar system and beyond. Others uploaded their minds into the vast computational substrata that had been infused into the bedrock. The vast majority of humanity, after life times that could reach centuries or millennia, chose to die natural deaths like their ancestors, often with the caveat of recording their consciousnesses ‘just in case’.
As the population thinned on Earth, those post-humans that stayed took it upon themselves to completely rehabilitate the planet to a pre-human Pleistocene state. This was accomplished by releasing utility swarms of nanites into the atmosphere, completely saturating the environment and every living thing. As nanites slowly scrubbed all traces of humanity from the planet, the world became a de facto “internet of everything”. The post-human intelligences residing in the bedrock were able to interface with every aspect of the planet and the things on it. With the patience of immortals, they slowly guided the Earth to a completely healed state.
Satisfied with their work, many of the post-human minds wanted to experience Earth in the flesh. Nanite fabrication nodes formed into clear water springs, from which emerged the first Gods. These were post-humans in physically perfect bodies that allowed them thrive in this new Eden without impacting their hard work with physical technology. They could control their immediate environment via the “internet of everything” while also staying in contact with their fellows in the substrate. Though the simulated worlds they had existed in for Eons were paradises, none who emerged from the springs would deny that living in the flesh was intrinsically better. A few thousand Minds would live in the physical world at any given time, living however long they wished until they decided they were satisfied. This was the state of post-humanity on Earth for thousands of years.
Then one day, the physical Gods couldn’t contact their opposites in the substrate. They couldn’t connect to the nanites that controlled their environment. The internet of everything had crashed. Some of the younger Gods immediately went into a panic. They were ancient but they had never been offline, before. Without their ability to consciously control the environment or ‘summon’ a tool from the ground, these Gods were naked in the woods. They couldn’t even consciously regulate their own biological processes, anymore. When it became clear that the connection was not coming back up, there were quarrels and recriminations. The Gods formed bands and drove out those that had lost their minds or proven wantonly violent.
After the first few decades of confusion and strife, the surviving Gods had established their own communities. They weren’t helpless morons and still in possession of superhuman bodies…albeit ones they now had to be careful with. Some took to the complete reversal of fortune with zeal, living out eons forgotten escapist fantasies of starting from scratch in the woods. Hill forts abounded. Other Gods did not accept their new mortality and set themselves to discovering their loss of connection to the Underworld and the internet of everything. Some formed informal schools of thought while others decided to investigate in solitude.
Theses pneumatics discovered that they had not completely lost connection to the Pleroma. Somehow, though all direct mental communication had been lost with the network, they could still interact with it on a subconscious level. Given centuries of solitude, they devised numerous rituals and ways of entering altered mind states to make contact with at least the physical world, if not the Unseen world, itself. This gave them some broad control of weather and animal migrations. Some even claim that their opposites in the Pleroma are communicating to with them via subtle signals such as the wind blowing through trees or the flights of birds. They are often right.
Centuries passed and their numbers began to multiply. No longer able to consciously control every aspect of their own biologies, children were possible. However, the original biological modifications of the Gods’ bodies weren’t all hereditary and their descendants became more baseline human with every generation. The first Gods had begun to thin by this time, either dying to misadventure or simply deciding that they had drank their fill. By this time, the pneumatics had come the conclusion that it may be possible to reach Pleroma by entombing their bodies in crypts hewn from the bedrock substrate. The theory being that the nanites in the bedrock would absorb and assimilate the nanites in the God’s body and upload their consciousness, even if it takes centuries. They were used to waiting.
Then jump forward approximately 2500 years and you’re in the late Bronze Age/Early Iron Age of my world.

27 Mar 2023 - Another event-rerun summary: Story gacha, Spin-off, and Fight-Master.
Hello. Welcome to another recap of MNG event-rerun.
The rerun this time was starting on 27 Mar 2023 (USA Timezone). It's been nearly 2-weeks since my last post / starting post of these rerun things (date 13-14 Mar). I'm feeling a pattern here :k
Anyway, the types of rerun this time, are: Story-Gacha (meh), Spin-off (whatever), and Fight-Master (godsend).
ingame mailbox, with links (& extra promo banners) telling you what-are-what.
1. STORY GACHA: Soaking-Wet: until 14 April.
300 gem per-attemp / 1500 for 6-tries. Still no other options (like those myth-tells about gacha-ticket)
Ricka \o.O/
9-story total (and many other nonsense to block-u away from winning).
2. SPIN-OFF event (RERUN): 15 April
play & enjoy the nonsense story, buying premium-tools, reach one ending and redo for another ending... All the hard-works for extra 4-photos adding to your game's album permenantly (or just see it here on Tumblr ._.)"
event home-page. Spinoff ending date 15 Apr. Early-birds rewards ain't worth to care.
This is a rerun. I've cleared stuffs before, b/c i don't have better things to do in life.
4ever 17 :))
feel obligated to share profile of friend's mother ._,)\"
3. Fight-Master: 11 April.
Prepare: equip the elementals matching with stages' advantage. Then, spend hearts doing fights against NPC (instead of the usual Ninja PvP fight).
Collect loots, while also raising your own Soul-points & Niney. Godspend event.
Homescreen: Lily madam glaring you . She is final-boss this time.
This is a rerun. I've got story before, so they are now worth 300 jewls instead. Ain't remember details, though.
4. Else-note
- The game loves you, and know your struggle with jewls & tickets... since many things happen same-time. Thus, there was a FLASH-SALES lasted 24-hour yesterday. by the time u're seeing this post, it ain't existing anymore. :k
- Stuffs from my past recap post still running: Shinobi-quest 15-17 & that other Gacha-event.
- I've made some MATH before about FIGHT-CLUB event. tldr: buying extra-heart, best option is the normal tab "500 gems for 800 pow". Those random deal in sale-tab aint worth.
