Hi all, I just upgraded to a Gigabit Fios Plan and currently have my existing Wifi 6 TP Link ax3000 router as well as the Verizon Wifi 6 router that was included with my install. I plug in the VZ router and according to the speed test I run on my laptop I get download speeds of roughly 550 mbps. When I switch to my existing router the speeds are more in the low 200 range. I've been reading up on past posts on reddit and other places and nothing really mentions any discrepancy like this, let alone what to do about it. Before I go down a rabbit hole of settings adjustments, is there something obvious that I need to enable or disable or reset on my existing router to attain comparable (or even remotely similar) speeds as the VZ router? I'm aware that VZ only guarantees advertised speeds to their own hardware, just trying to figure out if I'm missing something simple somehow.
Firmware is up to date on my existing router and I'm using the same cable to both routers when I test them. I'm also able to get a very fast (800mbps) connection using a cable from my existing router to my laptop.

2020.09.19 21:14 StephJanson Peak Eldar Empire vs Peak Necrons Part III

Part I - Introduction, Firepower, and Staying Power
Part II - Population, Population Replenishment, and Speed
Part III - Time Travel, Precognition, Pylons, and Reality Manipulation
Part IV - Conclusion and Closing Thoughts
Having discussed some conventional parameters of warfare, let's turn our attention to unconventional warfare - we are after all discussing futuristic militaries with all kinds of unorthodox capabilities and crazy shenanigans.

Time Travel

Mulligan lost battles, gain intelligence and warn your ancestors, the possibilities are endless. The execution… is a little more limited.
Eldar: Level 1 Eldar have demonstrated a limited ability to time travel half a day or so backwards in time (Yenneth) in order to alter the future, which really makes one wonder why they don’t do this more often.
Necrons: Setek, Rahkoz, and Orikan all show limited time travel. Orikan specifically has the ability time travel across his own timeline to put his predictions back on track, but as with Eldar time travel, it begs the questions ‘why wasn’t it used’ (say to prevent the Necrodermis biotransference, which Orikan actually foresaw and warned against, and which the Silent King later judged to be a mistake). Again, I suspect the answer to this question is ‘time travel has critical limits. There are a handful of examples of Necros making large time leaps, e.g. In Shield of Baal a Cryptek sends some Nids billions of years into the past to save the ship they were on, and in another instance Imotekh threatens to send a group of prisoners to the entropic end of the universe. None of these examples however amount to the kind of time travel that would be really useful i.e. being able to pinpoint a date in the past that would change the course of an ongoing war – and hit the timeline where it matters.
Conclusion: DRAW. I’d give an edge to the Nerons just because they seem to be able to time-travel further back into time, but neither side demonstrates the ability to time-travel effectively enough to alter key events which they would clearly want to alter – this is why I don’t see this being a game changing ability.
Speculation: There is a section of the Webway the Eldar call Uigebealach in which time moves backward and in which they can theoretically time travel backwards as far as they want. They seem to have resolved not to mess with these sections of the Webway (further supporting the hypothesis that time travel was limited/dangerous) but in an existential time travelling war I suspect these reservations would evaporate. Additionally, I wonder whether level 4 Eldar, being more psychically advanced, could perform Yenneth’s time travel on a bigger scale to reach further into the past. I also wonder if short or longer time traveling jumps could be chained together in order to effectively time travel back further i.e. Farseer A time travels back 10 hours, passes a message to Farseer B, who then time travels back another 10 hours to pass a message to Farseer C – rinse and repeat until you reach the desired time.

Precognition

Having an advantage here likely gives you first strike. This is also the ultimate form of intelligence that can let you evacuate planets from WMD targets, while determining the best targets for your own attacks.
Eldar: This is another signature feature of the Eldar, and one of the only things keeping them alive in the hostile 40K universe. Level 1 Eldar make devastating use of precognition, often manipulating events thousands of years into the future (e.g. as the supposed puppet masters behind the 2nd War of Armageddon). I’m not aware of pre-fall Farseeing by Eldar as the Path of the Seer is a post-fall thing, but we know both Lileath and Morai-Heg could do it - and by some readings of the Eldar lore they foresaw the Fall millions of years in advance. Clearly Eldar precognition has many limitations though, or they would have been able to prevent the Fall from happening (yes some Craftworlds foresaw the falls and left, but most Craftworlds didn’t leave in time and were devoured, similarly most of the Eldar didn’t even bother to leave on Craftworlds, and even before that, precognition didn’t save the Eldar from the long decline that led to The Fall in the first place).
Necrons: The Cryptek chronomancers can also see the future. It is said Orikan predicted the the Fall of the Eldar, the rise of the Imperium, the Horus Heresy, and the coming of the Tyranids, many thousands of years before each came to pass.
Conclusion: ELDAR WIN – Both the Eldar and the Necrons seem capable of predicting events thousands of years before they happen, but the Eldar have more feats in actually altering the future. The Eldar gods also probably made better precogs than Crypteks. For these reasons I give this win to the Eldar.
Sepculation: I wonder whether precognition is actually a counter to time travel. Suppose its halfway through the War in Heaven and the Necrons resolve to travel back 800 years in time from time 'T', to assassinate the Elder leader John Connor. This time travelling mission could be detected by two sets of Eldar. Should the mission succeed, the Eldar at time T would have their future erased, and that change in the future is something the Eldar can pick up (e.g. as the Breath of the Gods starts sending various time-streams on a collision course Bielanna sees the future being erased), allowing the Eldar to deploy countermeasures and prevent the time traveling mission. Similarly, at time 'T' minus 800 years (let's call this T-800), the assassination of John Connor is a significant event which might have been foreseen by Eldar of a previous age, say Eldar of the time T-1000, allowing them to run their own interference with the time travelling mission. Said differently, both the moment at which you decide to travel backwards, and the moment at which you travel back to, are always in someone's future - a future that can be foreseen. Perhaps one explanation for why the Necrons were not able to effectively time travel is because the Eldar actually had an answer to this. A similar effect is created when both sides have precogs i.e. side A plans to attack, side B's precogs detect this and plan a preemptive strike, but this is detected by side A's precogs who plan to preempt the preemptive strike. The attack keeps getting pushed further and further back in time until one side fails to foresee their future. In this sense too, the first strike is more likely to go to the side with the stronger precogs. I'd also note neither precognition nor time travel are panaceas. Suppose we detect that a black hole will collide with the sun in 100 years, this knowledge is probably not enough for us to stop it, we simply can't make the necessary technological advancements in time. For the same reasons, we would fail if we were to send someone back in time 100 years to warn our ancestors as the black hole was colliding with the sun. Sometimes knowledge helps, other times there really is nothing you can do.

Eldar vs Pylon Tech

Necron pylons such as those found on Cadia are worth a special mention because they were supposedly the Necron's trump card, which would have defeated the level 3 Eldar. From Fall of Cadia we know that activated pylons have a massive area of effect (shrinking the eye of terror - a region of the galaxy that encompasses billions of stars - from Cadia), cause demons to wink out of existence, cancel psychic powers (Celestine's aura), cause Psykers to drop dead (though more powerful Psykers are able to resist and even continue to use their psychic powers – the pylons hadn’t reached full effect by this stage), and prevent warp travel. There’s some lore that even claims that the pylons would have destroyed any creature with a soul! It's understandable why this would have been a game changer! What effects would this have on our hypothetical war? We don't have any examples of how the Eldar would deal with pylons but we can make educated guesses by examining how Eldar tech interacts with other similar effects such as The Shadow in the Warp, and psychic nulls/blanks.
As a reminder The Shadow in the Warp is the psychic interference field created by Tyranid Hive Mind which is described in the lore as "blocking all connection to the immaterium". It also has a massive area of effect (covering whole sections of the galaxy), also causes demons to flicker out of existence (Fall of Shadowbrink), also makes manifesting psychic powers very difficult, and also prevents warp travel. Psychic nulls/blanks create some of these effects on a smaller scale and are described as being able to "sever the connection between the Warp and realspace within their local area".
So how do these phenomena affect the Eldar war machine?
They handicap, but do not disable Eldar tech: While some Eldar tech like Firehearts can’t function without psychic activation, this is the exception, not the rule. Under The Shadow in the Warp the psy-links that the Eldar use for communication as well as for guiding their weapons stop working. But when Yriel fires missiles into Hive Fleet Leviathan, sophisticated guidance systems take over from the psy-links to make sure the missiles reach their targets. From Valedor:
The entire fleet swarmed around the orifice, launching hundreds of volleys of missiles into its depths. The weapons, directed by their own sophisticated guidance systems – the psy-links the armsmen normally used were non-functional in the face of the hive mind – flew under the horny plates and exploded. The sphincter was caught by the concentrated blasts and twitched, exposing the innards of the vessel for just a second" and then once the Hive Mind destroyed: "Psy-links all over the fleet sprang into life. The battle leapt into sudden clarity for the eldar. At the same time, the tyranid fleet collapsed. Ships blundered into one another, or stopped moving. As on Iyanden, Yriel reckoned a quarter of them died on severance from their guiding intellect.
Similarly, despite the psy-links being down, the ships are still able to communicate with each other technologically. Aboard Iyanden, Eldar Shuriken Catapult continue to fire using a manual override, forgoing their ability to be fired psychically. Soul-powered tech like wraith constructs continued to function, and were even able to bring their warp spewing vortex weapons to bear. We should also note that these same shuriken catapults and Wraithguard, are made from psychically summoned wraithbone – but they do not flicker out of existence. Basically most Eldar tech is enhanced by psychic abilities, but it is by no means rendered useless in their absence. This is supported by the fact that the Drukhari had to stop using their psychically enabled tech overnight, and were not thrown back to the stone age, on the contrary, they still have some of the most advanced tech in the galaxy.
They handicap but do not disable Eldar psychic powers: Iyanden Warlocks were able to unite in choir to repel the Shadow in the Warp and use their psychic powers. Similarly, Kelmont and a group of Farseers were able to breach the Shadow in the Warp to send Yriel a message light years away before 'calling down eldritch fire upon their attackers'.
They do not affect the Webway at all: While The Shadow in the Warp fully blocks warp travel, it does not seem to affect the Webway at all. Already under its full affects, Webway portals all across Iyanden continued to pump out aid from other Craftworlds. Yriel also presumably comes to Iyanden's aid via the Webway given that he was light-years away when he received the call for help. There are also examples of Tyranids and large groups of nulls/blanks like the Sisters of Silence making their way inside the Webway without destabilizing it. Even the Atlas Infernal, an artifact that emits a blank aura so powerful that its lethal to psykers, is regularly used inside the Webway without destabilizing it. It would also make sense for Necron pylons not to affect the Webway given the Necrons themselves relied and continue to rely on the Webway pretty heavily. Viewed through this lens, I’d suggest thinking of the warp as water and as the Webway as an underwater tunnel – evaporating the water does not destroy the tunnel.
They probably affect Eldar Gods: As warp entities, Eldar gods are technically demons and Pylons seem to have a much stronger impact on demons than the other examples we've discussed. Blanks make demons feel uncomfortable or makes them unable to see creatures within their aura, while the Shadow in the Warp can cause minor demons to lose their grip on reality though the stronger ones (the Avatar's of Khaine included) don't seem bothered by it. Pylons on the other hand make demons disappear outright (and even cause demon-infused humans to lose half their bodies!). Its possible that the Eldar gods were so powerful that even the Pylons could not hold them back (especially once augmented by worship from level 4 Eldar populations), but Pylons were probably the Necron trump card precisely because they blocked the influence of warp gods. If the Eldar want to bring their gods into Necron territory, they would therefore have to find a way to deal with Pylons first.
Conclusion: Pylons probably prevent the Eldar Gods from leading a charge into Necron territory, and if you believe that they would have destroyed anything with a soul, they probably would have prevented the Eldar themselves from charging headstrong into Necron territory. Pylons do not however prevent the Eldar and their Gods from defending Eldar territory in which Pylons have not yet been established. Pylons also don't stop the Eldar from using their world-ending conventional weaponry. As far as I can tell there is nothing stopping Eldar robots building a webway tunnel into the heart of a Crownworlds, jumping out, and deploying a black-hole-in-a-box. Similarly there is nothing stopping autonomous Eldar ships from appearing above a Necron world and stripping it layer by layer with Akiliamor warheads. As best I can tell, Pylons would slow the Eldar down, but they are not an absolute defense by any means. I'd also argue that Cadia's activated Pylons almost certainly caught Craftworld Ulthwe in its absolutely huge area of effect - and as far as we can tell - the Craftworld didn't perish - so we can speculate that the Craftworld provide a shield from the Pylon's effects.
Sidenote: The Necrons fielded precursors to pylons, such the Nexus Arrangement which were basically less powerful Pylons (they could prevent warp travel but not personal warp-mediated teleportation, nor could they prevent Demons from manifesting or stop psychic powers). They also had a similar device called a Null Field Matrix which generated a planetary scale anti-psychic field. Putting these two devices together creates a less powerful version of a pylon. For all intents and purposes the Eldar response to pylons is also a response to these devices.

Reality manipulation

These capabilities are extremely flexible – they can be used to bolster some of the parameters we’ve talked about e.g. to destroy areas of space (firepower), to summon armies, cities and planets (population and population replenishment) etc.
Eldar: In Fist of Demetrius we are introduced to what is only referred to as ‘The Machine of the Ancients’. It is described as ‘the ultimate weapon and the ultimate defense’ that could ‘make thoughts and dreams real’. The Eldar who built it were supposedly devoured in the fall before they could test the machine. When the Archon Ashterioth uses the machine he experiences a ‘god like consciousness’ and remarks ‘I know that if I work on this I can summon armies to my aid, armies that will worship me like a god, which will allow me to raise myself to heights undreamed of by the inferior intellects around me. I hear the whisper temptations of absolute power and I do not resist them.’ Almost immediately Ashterioth is attacked by a group of Imperials featuring a cameo from a young Logan Grimnar. To defend himself, Ashterioth summons a replica of Commorragh and populates it with thousands of Drukhari warriors equipped with weapons and artillery. Luckily the imperials manage to fight their way to the Archon and take him out before he gets the hang of using the machine. So what could this machine do in our scenario? This really depends on whether you place any limits on ‘making thoughts and dreams real’. A modest interpretation would be to replicate things that already exist in the universe. It could likely self-replicate, giving the Eldar as many reality warping machines as they need. By the same logic, it could likely replicate just about anything the Necrons had already created: summoning legions of Necrons who would fight for the Eldar by charging into Pylon fields, led by Eldar controlled C’tan, and backed by a Necron arsenal that could include Necron reality manipulation technology like the Breath of the Gods.
Necrons: We covered The Breath of the Gods briefly in the firepower section, but it was originally built in order to feed the C’tan star energy, by draining the energy of dozens of stars at a time. At some point, the human Telok finds the machine with a trapped C’tan in it, and superglues a Hrud to the machine to make use of its temporal field. He then rigs the machine to use the C’tan as a battery. This allows the machine to function in a way that it was not originally intended to, and in this new configuration, the machine is highly unstable, and an unimaginably more powerful reality manipulation tool. Over the span of a few centuries, it is used to terraform whole planets (including the creation of a Forge World!), and to summon crystal minions that can mimic machinery, but using the machine in this way has severe unintended side effects. Initially this reality manipulation results in all kinds of temporal anomalies like planets aging out of existence and stars going supernova before their time but eventually the machine malfunctions, threatening nothing less than the complete destruction of the universe (wait what?). Crucially, it’s not clear if the Necrons could use this modified version of the machine without destroying themselves and the whole universe in the process, which really limits its application in this war.
Conclusion: ELDAR WIN - The Breath of the Gods, as impressive as it is, has some pretty catastrophic limitations as a weapon. Meanwhile the Machine of the Ancients has clear examples of weaponization. While the Machine of the Ancients can likely create the Breath of the Gods, it’s unlikely that the Breath of the Gods can create the Machine of the Ancients (stably or unstably), and even if they could, the Necron/C’tan couldn’t psychically interface with it. For these reasons I hand the win to the Eldar.
Speculation: In its original stable configuration, the Necrons could probably use the Breath of the Gods to drain and destroy dozens of stars at a time – though whether this drain would happen quickly enough to be a viable weapon is unclear, as the C’tan can take forever to eat a star. In its modified unstable form, this machine has endless uses e.g. since it made a Forge World, could it be used to create new Tombworlds? This could solve a pretty major population replenishment problem. There’s the issue of whether this is really a Necron weapon if it requires a Hrud to work, though Chronomancers could probably engineer their own temporal fields. The million-dollar question is whether the Necrons could actually stabilize this kind of machine. I’d speculate that the limitations of the Breath of the Gods are similar to those of the Celestial Orrery (both technologies seem to have some similar technological underpinnings in that they remotely cause starts to go supernova 'before their time'), and that they can’t stabilize the former given that they have been unable to stabilize the latter, but this is pure conjecture. We have good reason to believe that the Breath of the Gods didn’t provide god like power because if it did – as with many other techs we’ve discussed – it would beg the question ‘why wasn’t this power used to decisively win the war in heaven’. On the contrary, we actually have a good answer for why the Machine of the Ancients was not used. We know its engineers were killed in the Fall before they could ever test it. So we truly don’t have a reason to believe that we’ve seen its upper limits. We used a pretty modest interpretation for what the Machine of the Ancients could do, but ‘thoughts and dreams’ is a pretty wide scope. Why stop at things that already exist? Why not populate the galaxy with Aeldari pylons that destroy Necrodermis. Hell why not imagine a machine that erases Necrons from existence without the pylons. If that’s out of scope of our machine, why not imagine a more powerful version of the machine of the ancients to remove those pesky limitations. I personally see thinking of the Machine of the Ancients in this way as a 'no limit fallacies', so I don't go go there.

Hello,
PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST
Plan Availability
Difference between Core and Old Plans
Important Notes
Payment Policy
Referral Policy
Payment Methods
No other form of payments will be taken. If payment was done directly to the Cricket, I will not recognize it as payment completed as it is impossible to identify who paid and who hasn't.
How to go about joining?
You need to provide at least the following information:
Is this safe? Will I lose my number? (You can skip this part if you trust me?)
There's a recent post on a single person who lost their number due to an unresponsive group administrator. While it is an unfortunate incident, these happen once in a blue moon and I've not seen this ever happen during my 3 years of trawling this subreddit. Admittedly, there's an inherent risk with a group plan like this.
Cricket sends you too many text messages over the most minor of changes to the account (even device changes). As an added assurance, Cricket sends everybody in the group:
If payment isn't made by the due date, you can always go down to a shop/store and get your line out of the group plan. Once the due date is up, Cricket suspends the account (which is what happened for the guy above).
Personally, I've been running cricket groups for over 3 years. I'm very responsive to messages (unless I'm on a plane) and bills are almost always paid on time. Many Redditors here can vouch for myself. I also do not take any security deposit and take the responsibility of finding 4 members myself.
My Old Posts (which have comments on them for reference)
Again, do not use Reddit Chat. Please send me a private mesage on Reddit (Click here).
Thank you :)

2020.09.19 16:50 Christopher_Maxim I'm an office tech at a company that works with NASA. I should have never looked through their secret archive.

I don't work for NASA. I'm a lowly office tech at a company affiliated with NASA. We store data off-site mostly concerning their many, secret unmanned missions to the moon, including the countless ones that took place in between the Apollo launches. There are regular landings, even today. As you can imagine, we're not on the books. Still, we are a necessary facet of the space administration's delicate infrastructure.
Now that you're up to speed with where I work, I can tell you about the room. Room 371 to be precise; the overseer's office.
It always had an air of mystery about it. I, and other staff members, had been inside before; tasked with leaving behind flash drives filled with sensitive information for the overseer to upload to our database. You see, the sole computer in that room is an offline archive containing almost every one of NASA's dirty little secrets. Stuff that we can't risk getting out in the event of a data breach. If anyone were to hack our online mainframe, they would only find decoy files - outlying pieces of data that have already been in the public's eye.
Most of the information I dealt with amounted to mundane statistical analyses. The real interesting, controversial stuff was sent directly to the overseer, bypassing the prying eyes of entry-level employment.
That brings us to yesterday.
It was a normal drop-off assignment. Bring the flash-drive to Room 371, leave it on the desk, and shut the door on your way out. I had done it countless times before. This time, however, was a little different. After placing the drive on the desk, I noticed a faint glow on the wall behind it. The computer was on. This was strange. It was always shut down by the overseer after a data dump. The only times I had ever seen it turned on were days when he was in there, still working.
I admit, my curiosity got the better of me.
With a slight spike in adrenaline, I walked around the desk and sat at the chair, ready to take back at least one mystery to the hive-mind on the main floor.
The convenience in this moment cannot be understated. I later discovered that the overseer was sick and had rushed to the bathroom, where he remained for at least forty minutes. Not only was the computer on, but it was unlocked. Even our personal workstations required a series of passwords that changed, daily. Passwords we had to spend the first ten minutes of any given work day decrypting. This was the one and only chance I had to placate my curiosity and dig for the buried treasures of NASA. I knew there just had to be something in the confines of our database that would elicit a gasp or mouth drop. Something I would remember for the rest of my years.
In settling in at the desk, my heart pounding at the thought of the overseer's return, I noticed the computer was calibrated just like the rest of our PCs. Because of this, I knew just what folders to open and what digital stones to turn on my hunt for secrets. Most files were your run-of-the-mill storage vessels; data pertaining to the boring truths of the trade; statistics and physics predictions. After a few minutes of searching, I almost called it quits, but one document caught my eye. It was titled Project Burial at Sea. This was what I wanted. A classified NASA project, never before released to the public.
In this moment, secrets were revealed to me. Ones I soon wished I had never unearthed.
As is common with these types of documents, the jargon was very straight-forward and low on description. As such, I had to piece together bits of information to form a clear picture of the proposal and subsequent missions that apparently started at the turn of our current century. What I discovered did indeed elicit a gasp. It also made my skin crawl.
Project Burial at Sea was, ironically enough, a fail-safe against information leaks. It implemented the pre-existing infrastructure of NASA's unmanned missions to dispose of "cracks" in the system. That is, individuals likely to come clean about privileged information.
Yes, you heard right. Individuals. NASA was killing off would-be whistle blowers to protect their assets.
The initial proposal called for sending the bodies into deep space, but too many unknown variables presented themselves. If even one probe was knocked back to earth by an asteroid or unforeseen space event, the entire operation would be done for; especially if it landed in enemy territory. At that point, another country could use it to blackmail our government for aid and financial gain. Burying the bodies on the moon prevented this, and eliminated all potential evidence tying anyone to the crime. The people who vanished made up a very small portion of NASA, so the ratio of missing persons in relation to their workforce was barely disrupted, deflecting any potential suspicion.
After a rigorous sterilization procedure, the bodies are stuffed into the hollow spaces of the previously unmanned probes. Once they reach the lunar surface, they are collected by rovers (of which there are many more than you're aware of) and buried in the craters of a specific section of the moon's dark side. In other words, mass graves. The rovers later collect samples to determine the long-term effects of the soil on human decomposition. This was not the purpose of the project, just an added benefit.
I was floored. This document was not what I expected. I couldn't believe this sort of thing would happen in our country, and at NASA of all places, an organization I was involved with. After closing the file and navigating back to the home-screen, I left Room 371 and shut the door, my worldview shattered.
Upon returning to my workstation, my co-worker, Bill, questioned me.
"Jack, where were you? Did you hear the overseer retching in the bathroom? Poor guy has that stomach bug that's been going around."
I politely nodded but offered no response to the initial query, still shaken. Bill buried his face back in his work.
Eventually, the overseer returned, the sound of Room 371's creaky iron door slamming shut behind him as he resumed work at his desk. Beads of sweat formed above my brow as I wondered if he would notice something amiss and know I perused the archive. My heart began racing as the paranoia took hold. I had to tell someone about my discovery. Perhaps I misinterpreted the information. Maybe Bill could put my mind at ease. He was a nice guy. Not the type to break a promise or betray his fellow worker.
"Bill," I whispered, "Have you heard anything about NASA sending corpses to the moon?"
He stared at me a moment, an overly serious expression painted across his face. Then he laughed.
"Jack, you are a card. Where do you come up with this stuff, anyway? You should write a book."
Without so much as a sound to alert his arrival, the overseer put his hand on my shoulder. I nearly jumped out of my skin.
"Jack, I've been meaning to talk to you. A big promotion in the works. Meet me in my office in ten minutes."
With that, he loosened his grip and traveled back to Room 371. My eyes widened and my heart sank. Bill noticed something was wrong.
"What's wrong, Jack? You look as though you've seen a ghost. Promotions are a big deal around here. Only one every few months or so. Lisa was promoted last year and went on to supervise one of the unmanned probe launches. Haven't heard from her since."
I turned to Bill and met his gaze.
"Bill, it's been nice working with you."
He smiled before turning back to his computer.
"You too, Jack."
***
Ten, torturous minutes came and went. I hesitantly made my way to Room 371 and slowly opened the door. The overseer gestured for me to come in.
"Have a seat, Jack. And close the door."
I unwillingly obliged. The thought of making a run for it crossed my mind, but I knew the security detail at the front gate would stop me. Drawing attention to myself would only serve to expedite my demise.
"So... what is this about?" I asked, my breathing now labored and sporadic.
"Like I said before, it's a promotion. NASA is recruiting from its affiliate outfits to supervise some of their unmanned launches. You've been selected."
I tilted my head in disbelief.
"But sir, why me? I haven't done anything to warrant such a promotion, to my knowledge."
He grinned.
"That's where you're wrong, Jack. We've been watching you. We know what you did. You can't deny it any longer."
With a wicked smile, he stood up from his desk and walked over to me, his arms outstretched in my direction. His shadow covered the entire room. Or at least, it seemed that way in the moment. Without realizing it, I had backed myself into the corner, almost cowering in fear. That's when the door opened and my co-workers flooded the room.
"Surprise!"
I stood upright, shocked.
"What's going on?"
Bill responded.
"Don't you know what day it is, Jack?"
The overseer pointed at his wall calendar. It was September 18th, which according to them, was my hire date.
It all made sense now. It was a ruse. A practical joke at my expense. The overseer sometimes did this on workplace anniversaries - but not for many years at this point, and never to this elaborate extent. I didn't even realize what day it was until they pointed it out.
"Did you really think I would leave my computer on, unattended?"
Bill chimed in.
"Bodies can't even decompose on the moon, Jack. There's no air!"
They both let out hearty laughs. I laughed too, thoroughly relieved.
***
The rest of the afternoon was nice. After all was said and done, we returned to work, invigorated by the positive surge of energy and morale. After finishing my leftover tasks, I left with a smile on my face, happy to be earth-side, alive and well. This mood would follow me the whole way home, but it wasn't alone.
When I parked in my driveway, someone pulled in behind me. The overseer stepped out of the car and greeted me with a friendly wave.
"Jack, can we talk?"
House calls were unorthodox in our line of work, but not unheard of.
"Of course, Colter. Please come in."
He followed me inside and joined me in the living room. I sat down, but he paced at the fireplace, looking over my family photos on the mantle.
"You know, what Bill said was true. Bodies don't decompose on the moon. That bit was added by NASA. They put falsehoods in all of their classified documents. It's another fail-safe; a detail they can point to in the event of a leak to make it seem illegitimate."
I was utterly confused.
"I'm not sure I follow. What are you getting at, exactly?"
He turned to me, a stern look painted across his face.
"It's all real, Jack. The dead bodies, the craters; everything. You should have never sat at my desk."
I chuckled.
"Come on, Colter. The joke's over. No need to drag it out."
He wasn't laughing.
"This is no joke. You were hired in July, not September. I sent out a last-minute memo to everyone in an attempt to avert your suspicion. Here, we can discuss things privately."
"Very funny. You're forgetting about my wife and daughter."
A smirk touched the side of his cheek. He tossed me an envelope. Inside were photos of my wife picking up our daughter from school. My heart sank.
"What the hell is this, Colter? Are you following my family around?"
"We've intercepted them. Let's just say they'll be late getting home, tonight."
The gravity of the situation was beginning to sink in. If everything I saw was indeed real, then I was now a target. I would soon become the next NASA casualty buried at sea. If I didn't escape and get help, Charlotte and Leslie would never be saved.
My eyes darted for the door. Colter noticed.
"I wouldn't run if I were you. I didn't come alone."
My blood boiling, I was tempted to lash out in anger.
"Don't worry. They're safe."
I remained silent, but livid.
"There are things in the universe you can't begin to understand. Things not only above your pay-grade, but above your understanding. Things human words could never hope to describe."
"Human?" I asked, perplexed by the wording.
"Yes, Jack. Let me show you."
What happened next was enough to put my mouth on the floor.
Using his right hand and a single circular motion in the air, Colter opened up a portal. A fucking portal- one that seemed to connect my living room to the moon. I could even see Earth off in the distance.
"WHAT IN GOD'S NAME IS THAT?!" I shouted.
"Come, Jack. Get a closer look."
As his hostage, I had no choice but to humor his demands. Upon stepping up to the void, still frazzled, I saw it. A crater, filled to the brim with corpses.
"Why... why are you showing me this?" I asked in a shaky voice.
"Just watch, Jack."
I looked back to the scene and noticed something at the edge of the crater. Three, shadowy figures, far too tall to be human. They extended their arms and a glow rained down from the space above the crater.
The corpses... they moved.
I watched in horror as the bodies were re-animated- but these were not living things. They were shells controlled by a puppeteer, bent to its sinister will. The three shadows became one and formed an archway, a blinding brightness pouring out from within. One by one, the corpses walked into the light until, finally, the crater was emptied. Then, the light dissipated, and the shadows spun in unison, taking off at great speed into the abyss of deep space.
With another wave of his arm, Colter closed the portal. I was speechless.
"You see, Jack, Project Burial at Sea is more than a safety measure. It's a necessary sacrifice to them."
"So... all those bodies?" I asked.
"No, no. Only some were would-be whistle blowers. The rest; John and Jane Does, left at morgues across the country with no relatives to claim them."
"Where did they take them?" I asked.
"To the place where they live. There, they are forced to build. Stuck in the space between life and death for an eternity, slaves of an alien race. It's a truly terrible fate. We would all be there right now, if not for the deal we struck back in 1947. These creatures don't bode well in our atmosphere. We placate their every need to keep them from a developing a technology capable of mitigating the effect our air has on their bodies and spacecraft."
I couldn't believe it. Everything I knew up to that point was a lie.
Colter walked to the door.
"I like you, Jack. That's why I'm telling you all of this. I want to keep you on. You're a good man, and a good worker. If you don't want to end up like the poor souls up on that hunk of space rock, you'll keep your mouth shut."
I heard a car pull in outside.
"Looks like your wife and daughter are home. We just took them out for ice cream."
Before closing the door on his way out, the overseer turned back with a smile.
"See you on Monday, Jack."

2020.09.19 16:11 lddake First time playing since the update and I have some thoughts.

Let me preface this by saying I am a casual player. I average less than 100 hours a month playing. Some days that's an hour or less, some days that's 12 hours on a Saturday. I have a job that demands 60-80 hours of my week and a family also, so I understand Bethesda isn't aiming towards pleasing me, the middle-aged guy using it as an escape from reality for a bit. Having said that, I genuinely love Fallout, and have thoroughly enjoyed 76 since wastelanders dropped, I even talked a few people to coming back to the game to play with me who gave up on it after it's atrocious launch. I love the in-game community overall, the reddit community is far more hit or miss, but still great overall. Only reason I am differentiating here is I have seen you mofos get ruthless attacking people who complain or even just ask questions about things they are unaware of and that is most definitely not the in game standard I have seen. Not always, but I have seen it more than once. I fully expect this post to get downvoted but I feel like I have to say my piece. I saw another post this morning that got horribly downvoted claiming the game isn't engaging to casual players anymore, which is kind of accurate. The top comment argues that I just restarted and did this with nothing but pipe weapons, and "git gud." That is certainly not the point. A casual player doesn't want to rework his entire character every time Bethesda decides to rework something. They don't want to give up on a character that is now starting out in a worse place than an entirely new player. But i digress...
I'm also going to point out that to date I have spent a total of 390$ on this game. I am not expecting something for nothing I will happily pay for enjoyable entertainment. Did I expect more than what I got? Yes and no. Yes I did expect more, but no I am not here to complain about that. I would even purchase fallout first if it were a little more reasonable. Because I do love fallout. The game is/was fun in my opinion.
Sure there are problems, there always were and will be. I'm not expecting perfection. That would be unreasonable, in my opinion for the sheer scale and openness of the game. I don't even have a huge problem with the daily scrip/cap/bullion limits. I wish they were a little higher, or weekly limits instead but I understand why they are the way they are and that certainly isn't a deal breaker for me. I'm not even sure if this update is a deal breaker for me. It might be. I haven't yet decided. I am now 4 days behind starting season 2 and that's fine, I genuinely don't worry about things like that, the rewards are fun but not necessary. I played for just over an hour last night to see what it would be like. Logged in, spawned outside my camp and the daily heart of the enemy started. Why not there's a fissure site just south of my camp so I went and drew out a SB. Well that was a bit harder, wasn't it? Didn't die but my missile turrets hardly touched it, my bloodied prime gauss rifle is more glitched than it used to be and rather than taking 2 shots to kill him it took about 15. Between that one, 2 more SB, about 10 mirelurk kings, trying my other weapons and perks, dying about half a dozen times just defending my camp, I got frustrated and shut it off. Started researching.
Now I do not have an "Optimized build" for anything. I have a few semi decent builds, at a level 180+ that I switch between and almost none of them are worth anything anymore. The randomness of the weapon and armor drops in this game, and now all of a sudden what I had not being good enough anymore, how many of those weapons that I've traded in for scrip would now be what I want? Doesn't really matter because what I have now is the next thing to useless.
I have a mismatched set of unyielding 3* armor, with one 3* chameleon leg I can swap out for when I want the extra stealth. I have adrenal reaction, marsupial, herd mentality, and speed demon mutations.I have serendipity, starched genes and bloody mess for luck. Covert op, Mr. sandman, sneak, and action boy. Team based charisma cards. 9 points of perception allocated to either rifleman or commando, depending on the gun I am using. 9 points strength to heavy gunner.
My current weapons:
1* Bloodied Suppressed Prime Gauss Rifle- used to 1 to 2 shot most enemies, and was about 60% accurate in vats, now it's about 10% accurate and won't fully charge anymore. try to charge it and it fires like a slow automatic instead.
2* Bloodied Recon Sniper Rifle with +50% limb damage and .50 receiver- used to 1-2 shot standard enemies, my go to for stealth, now it barely only does 2-300 damage per hit, to slow to be in any way useful.
3* Bloodied Supressed Automatic Assault Rifle with faster reload and bashing damage buff- still works but not as well as it used to and damn does it chew up ammo now.
3* Prime Automatic Hunters The Fixer +30% damage to animals, vats crit damage, 90% reduced weight- this was a newer one before the rework, and I wasn't entirely sold on it then, but burning through 500 ultracite 45 rounds last night and it not being enough was pretty disheartening.
3* Prime Two Shot Focused Gatling Plasma with vats crit and 90% reduced weight- The only gun I have that seemed to perform as well if not better after the rework. Which used to be just my endgame gun as ammo is so expensive to make/keep for it. A core and a half in it roughly took out basically as much as everything else I tried.
I saw a post on the front page last night/this morning. If you're going to complain maybe you should find a new game... I kind of agree. The amount of time and effort I have put in to this game that I loved and enjoyed only to log on last night and have my ass handed to me and discover that my semi decent character is in fact the next thing to useless now was really disheartening. I guess writing this all out kind of helped, as I'm leaning towards taking a break from the game. I won't participate in season 2. Hopefully they will fix some of this moving forward. I would like to play again some time. Here's hoping to see you all in the wasteland again some day. Thanks for listening.

2020.09.19 06:43 SQUID_FUCKER Just finished my first watch of Black Sails. What an absolutely incredible show. My spoiler free review inside (Long Read)

I initially posted this to /television's weekly recommendation thread but wanted to share my thoughts here as well.
I FINALLY got around to watching Black Sails. As a person who routinely praises shows like Justified, Banshee, Breaking Bad, Spartacus, Vikings and other pulpy, serialized action or dramatic series as some of his favorites, it's amazing that I've only just connected with Black Sails.
While this is the first time I've connect with it, this isn't the first time I've tried to watch the show. Several times in the past, years before now I have tried to give the show a chance but unfortunately never made it past the first episode. I must have tried the pilot episode at least 4 or 5 times but no matter how many times I would watch it, it just wouldn't 'click' with me. So, fast forward to last weekend, I'm on my couch and am coming to the realization that I have completely exhausted absolutely every dramatic series I was even remotely interested in watching. So there I am, I had just finished the short-lived Exorcist TV show from FOX (Which I did actually find both seasons to be surprisingly decent) and Hulu skips the credits of that show in order to recommend that I 'Continue Watching' Black Sails again. I can even see the playhead on the thumbnail, resting about 3/4's of the way through the first episode still. I figure, what the hell, and on a whim I decided to give it one more shot with my full attention. And for some reason, something is different this time. Because holy shit, did it click with me finally.
I believe the moment where I went from interested to fully on board was the exchange at the end of episode 2. When Silver tries to sell the ledger page to Charles Vane and Rackham in exchange for all the ships pearls, instructing them meet him under the cover of night out in the wrecks. The whole scene that follows, Silver hiding off to the side as he sends out crazy vagrants to complete the transaction with Vane. Charles continuing to shoot them. Then, Charles and Rackham chasing after Silver across the wreckage. Silver on the run, memorizing and burning the page, Flint capturing him and threatening to kill him before Silver confesses the page is gone as they both escape from a pursuing Vane and Rackham, with Jack falls into the sea losing the entire crew's shares. This was when I knew I was going to love it. This is when I knew what kind of show it was going to be and that it was going to be fun.
From that moment last weekend until just hours ago, any waking moments I had free were completely consumed by this show. There was even a few days this week where I found myself up almost all night long (and paying for it dearly the next day) as the credits for each episode faded in, I would tell myself 'Just one more!' I was totally hooked. I NEEDED to know what was going to happen next and I didn't want it to end. I was completely enthralled and consumed by it.
I'm typing out my review below under the assumption that whomever reads it has no knowledge about the show (I know this doesn't really to a Black Sails specific subreddit, this was all originally for the /television 'What Did You Watch Last Week' thread but I'm just going to copy what I wrote there since I did put quite a bit of effort into creating a spoiler-free review).
I hope you can bare with me here, I know it's going to be a ridiculously long review. After dedicating all my free time over the last week to seeing this story through until the end and having just finished it today, I have so much I want to discuss in regards to the show. My favorite characters, the best moments, why I loved it. The thoughts are just running through my head without any filter or direction and I need to just start typing so I can begin to sort my thoughts out and put them down somewhere. I hope if anyone does bother to read this long rambling post, they'll keep that in mind. These are just my first, completely unfiltered thoughts on what I loved and why I would recommend it while it's fresh in my mind, so I apologize in advance for the rambling, scatterbrained nature of this post.
If you don't feel like actually reading this in it's entirety, my brief TL:DR would be: Throughout 4 Seasons of high-seas action, Black Sails is a non-stop swashbuckling epic. A sweeping, sprawling adventure set during the downfall of the golden age of Piracy. The story follows the pirate crews who live, trade and sail from the island of New Providence that they call home. Here in the port city of Nassau, is where the center for all pirate operations and business in the West Indies is located. As the turn of the 17th century looms on the horizon, the various pirate crews find themselves facing a grave danger. It is here and now, in the small town of Nassau, with a new century just beginning to take shape, that a war for the future is just getting underway. A war started by a British Empire looking to quell any budding rebellion that might be embolden as the result of pirates and their defiance the crown. An effort not just to end piracy altogether but to do so with such conviction and prejudice that it sends a message loud and clear to everyone under British rule: Anyone that even consider to dare whisper of rebellion would be dispatched so throughly that no one else even thinks of such a disobedience. During a time when colonization efforts in a new world were fragile and life was difficult, the Crown wanted to use this war against the pirates to send a message of unity and strength. With that, just as swiftly and definitively as it is announced, the British Royal Navy sets out, with the clear intent to capture and execute any pirate or collaborator who calls the West Indies home. With or without it's support, England would be ushering the island of New Providence into this new world. By force if necessary, it would be colonized under British rule and Nassau along with it. As the pirate crews confront this new reality, they know that there will be no place for them in a version of Nassau that is colonized under the crown. They realize that they must band together and fight back as a unified force if they are to stand any chance against the entirety of the British Navy. That it will require every effort they can muster if they are to protect their way of life and avoid facing extinction. Forced into a war against an Empire, the pirate rebellion and accompanying crews must use every trick and tactic they have at their disposal if they stand any chance of survival. A must-watch for fans of pulpy, serialized, action-driven shows. Full of vibrant, saturated colors, the cinematography takes full advantage of the beautiful art design, massive set pieces and a sun-bleached color palette. Featuring a huge cast full of great, memorable characters you'll love (as well as love to hate) who find themselves entangled in a never-ending revolving door of backstabbing, shifting allegiances and increasingly bloody battles waged over control of Nassau. The show keeps moving along at cracking pace, never once stopping for a breath. An endless supply of twists and turns as the tales belonging to the pirates of Nassau eventually reveal themselves to be just a small part of a much larger tapestry, each connected through their relationships to one another, built through trials and triumphs, and forged in battles fought along side one another. As the characters find themselves careening towards certain destruction as they face an all out war against the colonies and each other, their intertwining lives and the place they all share to call home might just be the one thing that sees them through it or watches them die trying. 8.5/10
Below is my spoiler-free endorsement/review of Black Sails (4 Seasons, 2014-2017, available on Hulu):
I think the first thing most people will notice when diving into Black Sails, is that the show looks just absolutely gorgeous. The sets and locations, the vibrant colors, white sands, blue waters, the bustling town of Nassau, it all just looks incredible. I don't know the budget Starz had for this show was but whatever it was, they made the most of it. Sure, some of the wide shots of the ships at sea, you can see the dated VFX in the water or sails but those moments are few and far between. Short lived because once the cinematography brings you on to the decks of the ship, on the level of the crews, you really feel like you've been transported there. I know, that sounds incredibly cliche but it's always a small gripe of mine when a show will start with an obvious VFX establishing shot before cutting to an interior or brought in to the characters level and it just feels like a set, with little connection to the surroundings. Game of Thrones scenes at sea felt this way to me (same with shows like Vikings or Spartacus).
With Black Sails though, it would seem that great care taken in creating these massive, physical sets that stand in and make up the ships of the show. Recreated with incredible detail, the water-logged decks, coils of ropes, nets, sails, barrels and ornate carvings in wood banisters, lanterns swinging, leaky barracks and more combined with sunny Bahama backgrounds to create an authentic feeling that pulls you in to the world (I don't know if it was or was not filmed on location).
First and foremost, Black Sails is an action-adventure show. The constant battles, fights and skirmishes stretch throughout every location and episode of the show. Ships chasing one another on the high-seas, using tactics to evade and maneuver through storms and ambushes. The fights on land, lines of soldiers lining up and firing muskets at one another, night time raids, duels, sword battles, fights on horseback...this show is packed with near nonstop action. And it's all very well done. The stunt and fight choreography is fantastic. There is constantly something going on. Someone is being chased, a ship being pursued, a battle being waged. If the characters aren't in a fight, it's either because they're preparing for their next one or recovering from the last one (often times both at once). These encounters and confrontations are brutal, violent and bloody as hell. Bodies are constantly being blasted and sent flying into the water. Whether it's by canon, muskets, swords, storms, fires, capture, torture, limbs amputated and more. You wouldn't want to be a redshirt on any of these crews.
As for the story itself, despite my glowing review here, I do have to be honest that the writing on this show isn't particularly smart. It isn't mind-blowing the same way shows like Fargo, The Wire, The Leftovers, early GoT or other similar shows where you sit back and think to yourself, 'damn that was fucking brilliant!' But what this show lacks in the cleverness of it's storytelling, it more than makes up for in spades in terms of sheer entertainment and just how fun it is.
The writer seemed to have embraced this approach fully and are unapologetic in delivering what the show does best and what results is completely over the top. Characters switch allegiances more times than they switch costumes. Sometimes switching back and forth and back again within a single episode. The main characters have incredible plot armor when the story calls for it, withstanding firing lines, or mortar or canon fire, standing there in total chaos as the world around them is absolutely leveled in destruction and they walk away with some scrapes and cuts. It is also predictable in the sense you always know that whenever they have a win, when things seem victorious or finally are looking up, that it will be short lived as the writers drop another plot-twist or betrayal on the characters in order to drive the plot forward.
I suppose the nature of thieves and pirates, the constant backstabbing and fight for control, allows for this in a way that doesn't feel too forced or maybe I was just having too much fun to care. With each new development, there is a new scheme, a new defector, a new ally or enemy, often times an enemy who was just an ally a short while ago. This cycle continues throughout the entirety of the show and pushes these characters into a never ending escalation of increasingly dangerous conflicts. However, it is always done in a way that it feels much more fun than frustrating and that's not an easy task to achieve.
Usually these types of plot devices feel transparent but I think a large part why they work in Black Sails is because of the underdog nature of characters who are constantly faced with a seemingly insurmountable uphill battle. You want to see these guys have to fight their way out. It's what they do best. More often than not they are outgunned, outmanned and outmatched and with nothing but their wits, scrappy nature and fighting spirit, exhaust every plan they can come up with, barely escaping each encounter alive only to turn around and jump head first back into danger, looking for another fight without hesitating.
They're deplorable, unapologetic, thieving, lying bad guys who win you over with a fighting mentality, witty dialogue and charm and a dubious code of honor among thieves. And there is no shortage of these great characters. Captain Flint, Jack Rackham, John Silver, Billy Bones, Charles Vane, Anne Bonnie, Teach and tons of fantastic secondary players. They all are a joy to watch as they fight with one another for supremacy of Nassau and attempt to avoid the inevitable, ever looming colonization threat of the major new world powers of England, Spain and the Americas as they try to stay two steps ahead of the noose and evade capture.
The best part about all of this is, as these characters all have their own motives, goals and intertwining stories, there is never a moment where you'll find a storyline that feels unimportant to the big picture. Some more important than others but everything serves a purpose here. Far too often shows will feature these non-essential B or C storyline whose sole existence is to eventually get dropped into the main storyline at a time of critical need and offer the solution to an impossible task. You know, the storylines that offer nothing on their own, the ones that simply stagnate, until a time when the audience is forced to check in on these contrived plot thread simply so the writers can remind us, 'See this random characters that exist? This might be something important later...' in the most transparent way possible before they vanish again, forgotten until the plot calls for them to save the day like the laziest dues ex machina imaginable.
Thankfully, Black Sails mostly avoids this problem with a constant flux of allegiances, motives and characters who are always moving and shifting. Whether the audience is following a mentally tortured but brilliant tactician in Captain Flint as he relentlessly drives his crew towards something they do not understand or agree with. We get to watch with horror as he cuts down anyone who stands in his way, enemy or ally, leaving a costly wake of destruction as each victory continues to consume him from within, driving him further towards a darkness within that he cannot comprehend.
Or when the show spends the time to fully explores it's large cast of characters. All of whom feel like like fleshed out individuals with their own agendas, complex individuals each with their own strengths and shortcomings, who still feel like they exist when the eyes of the story is not on their tales.
Whether it's the misadventures of the gruff Anne Bonnie and hapless Jack Rackham, the inseparable pair of thieves that get by on Rackham's quick-wit and never-ending scheming, that unfortunately almost always finds him ending up on the wrong side of his plans. Bested by his own efforts in misguided attempts to make a name for himself, and to prove to those around him that he is a worthy adversary to any man.
Or when we get to watch as the mysterious John Silver drifts with ease between lies and loyalties, possessing a powerful ability to persuade those around him of whatever he deems necessary in that moment to achieve his means and those means are to steal a fortune in Spanish Gold and live long enough to spend it without anyone being the wiser.
Or when checking in with a murderous Charles Vane, the one pirate on the show who is seemingly at peace with his very nature. Completely unapologetic for who he is, Vane rarely shows even a shred of remorse for the brutality inflicted on anyone who happens to have what he wants. A man who, despite the ability to instill fear with just a mention of his name, is also one of the most honorable among thieves. He is someone who stands by his word. Who does not waver from a moral code that only he seems to fully understand. Yet despite knowing himself fully and being at peace with his true nature, his one source of weakness continues to be his love and loyalty to those closest to him who continually betray his trust and loyalty. Perhaps because he is such a formidable opponent that there is no other reasonable alternative. These particularly betrayals often come at the hands of Eleanore Guthrie. A woman for whom he continues to let in and let his guard down for. A woman who, despite her opposition to his ruthlessness, does not seem to hesitate for very long when that ruthlessness can be to her benefit. Her ability to manipulate him for her own gain, twisting his feelings of love for her and using that as a weapon to her own advantage before walking away when it suits her goals is Charles biggest weakness.
No matter which character the story is currently focused on, which ones are in the background or have taken the forefront, they are all just different threads of the same tapestry. Even when the show takes us into the lives of the women who run the town of Nassau and explores those characters, their motives, problems and business dealings. All the stories and actions being told are as critical to the larger picture as any. All of these side characters are just as important to the story developments in their own right and for the most part, I found myself fully vested in them. When it comes to the storytelling of Black Sails, nothing is wasted. There are no scenes or conversations that are unimportant. There is no exchange between characters that doesn't serve a purpose, whether large or small. Every conversation drives the story. Every scene has relevance.
I almost never find found myself going, 'Oh it's this weak storyline, time to browse reddit until we go back to a plot that matters.' The ever-changing loyalties and politics of every character on the show is just as important to the story and feel suitably so. There is never a development that doesn't eventually have it's own payoff or a means without an end. There is never a time where you'll find yourself thinking, 'Hey what ever happened to 'X'?' There is no worry that it was forgotten about or a discarded plot thread that it won't be addressed again.
As I started the back half of the show two days ago, I was a little nervous. I had no idea if it had been cancelled or was given a proper conclusion and I was so invested in it, ending the entire series on a cliffhanger would've been heartbreaking because it deserved better (though it isn't like I was of much help there since I'm only now watching it).
With the start of season three, the audience can tell the endgame has begun. Things are much more urgent. The stakes become higher, the battles feel more dire, the relationships more strained and consequences permanent as the battle to maintain control of Nassau grows bloodier and more deadly. While the first two seasons had us following the separate adventures of these characters and pirate crews; the final two seasons swiftly begins to connect these arcs in ways that feels like the show is drawing towards it's natural conclusion in a way that make sense.
As the relationships grow more complex, the loyalties and promises made by men get pushed to their limit. Crews that fought together and trusted one another, now find themselves at odds. Whispers travel through battle-weary and divided men, as they begin to look for any opportunity to kill one another first before the same is done to them. Allegiances fracture as the potential outcome of a war they all fought together towards becomes something different entirely. As these once common goals between Captain and crew begin to diverge, drifting further and further away from what they once were, each man's true motives and reason for fighting becomes clear. With the lines in the sand drawn, every man must chose what it is he fights for. As all these storylines dovetail towards one another with increasing speed, drawn towards an inevitably violent conclusion, it becomes clearly that no matter the outcome, on the other side of this war Nassau cannot be promised peace for all those fighting for it and simultaneously support all those who wish to call it home. It is simply not big enough for all to forget what betrayals have been committed and the enemies that were made in it's name.
Thankfully, I will say, without spoilers that the show does get a proper conclusion. Whereas the first three seasons all end with a lot of moves still left to be made on the chessboard, the fourth season closes out in a very natural place. For the characters that remain when the smoke clears, there are no more moves to be made. The adventures of these men and women have drawn to a close. And while there are winners and losers, most find their fate in the aftermath to be somewhere between victory and defeat, as the sacrifices necessary to achieve those ends required tolls far greater than any had imagined.
I won't spoil more than that but I do think the ending here is throughly satisfying and feels like this is where the story was meant to end.

2020.09.19 04:48 arianne535 100K GIVEAWAY: How Repladies has changed my life and made luxury attainable!!!!

MOODBOARD
Seeing everyone’s moodboards is incredibly inspiring! I joined this subgroup not too long ago, but wow, have I learned a ton!! Because of Repladies, I have learned to use IMGUR, Reddit (it's the sole reason I joined), Paypal, Western Union, Taobao, Weidan and Wechat!
Anyone also using google translate more than they ever imagined?!
As a person, I have become so much more exposed to everyone’s ideas and opinions. I love reading the posts every morning over my coffee! I have gained friends that I never would have met because I am intrinsically shy and introverted- Some of these friends I chat with on a daily basis- you know who you are!!
I am not someone who typically dresses in designer or even plans out OOTDs. Becoming a mom has forced opted me to put practicality and my children’s future first. I could never have dreamed of buying any of the luxury pieces I only see on magazines (I’m dating myself here) or online. But this community has not only enabled me but definitely repfluenced me to stretch myself and satisfy some of the desires I would never have been able to meet.
The mods at Repladies are tireless, driven, disciplined heroes who are probably speed readers. LOL. Thank you so much for everything you do. Thank you also for organizing fun contests and giveaways such as this one- I’m sure everyone agrees that we need as many reasons to celebrate with how 2020 is going!
Here’s my moodboard- inspired by all the things I envision of my ideal fashion style but have yet to achieve (#stylegoals). I love classic pieces and try to stick to looking clean, elegant and age appropriate (I’m bordering on 40). Fall is my favorite time of the year (as with so many of you here!) so I tried to stick to the colors that fell into this palette.
I have two of these items on the way- an AE Burberry Trench (AE link) and a Dior Bobby (QC review here) and will absolutely review them when I get my hands on them!
Items shown All links to Authentics:
  1. Hermes Joueuse Boots in Gold
  2. Hermes Silk Twillies
  3. Loewe Shades
  4. Rolex Oyster Perpetual 31 Black MOP Diamond markers Rose Gold
  5. Numero 21 Signature Satin bow heels
  6. Christian Dior Bobby Medium size
  7. Messika Move collection bracelets
  8. Burberry Trench Chelsea or Sandringham
***Mini Review/Comparison: Battle of the Hermes Twillies!!!
Item: Hermes Twillies for my TB Lindy Handles!
- Seller – Ali Express
- $1.04 Canadian each! STEALLLLLL (currently 50% off, regularly CAN$2.09) or $0.78 USD free shipping
- RenYvtil Factory store- Ali Express
- Measurements- 100 cm x 3 cm
Versus
- Seller- Tao Bao via Basetao
- Price- CNY69 or $10.20 USD + Basetao fees + shipping
- Measurements- 86 cm x 4 cm
- My Pics
My thoughts-
So no contest, value wise, the AE ones are hands down AMAZING VALUE. However, you definitely get what you pay for with this one- the TB ones are branded, much softer and way better quality! The AE ones have no brand but for the sake of handle twillies, they do the job just fine! I bought the AE ones so I could switch the colors up depending on my outfit and these totally do the job.
The TB ones came in the nice orange box with brown ribbon (unbranded) and the AE ones came in a small padded envelope.
I would recommend both depending on your level of expectation and also what you’re using it for. If you’re someone who wants to go for authentic/quality, then I would recommend TB. For a handle covering that you just need as a functional piece, knock yourself out with the AE option!!

2020.09.19 00:20 aspienonomous Mammasaurus Rex: Moving Shenanigans Part 2

So, where I last left off in this preposterously absurd tale, it is September. Rex is of the mindset, assuming she has a mind where she can set her thoughts in place, remains debatable and borderline questionable at the best of times, that it's not that big of a deal. She has offered every kind of help a person in my situation could only dream of, simply to have those hopes bludgeoned over the head with plutonium, just in time for reality to sink in. She Is also assuming that I’ll break up with my then fiancé and she’ll morph into the antichrist and save me from homelessness. Rex has been trying to push me out of the house for months and is now triangulating between me, Hubs and 2 of my brothers, both are narcissists and my sister in law, who also just so happens to be…. gaaaaassspppp…...a narc.
Not long after Rex’s visit we get a group text from SIL, saying that their family is moving to a far off magical land in November, but they are keeping their house here for when they come and visit at XX dates and times. What on this beautiful blue orb, coasting through this shimmering candy bar galaxy could I have fucking done to win this jackpot of infinite sanity paid out in dividends!!! When NO ONE responded with oooooos and fucking aaaaahhhs she doubled down and went full fucking blown crocodile tears about how they’ll miss the fucking faaaaaamily. Rex started sending over the top “we’re crying in our beer” texts at an alarming rate. After about 5 minutes of that shitshow, I removed myself from the group. Go fucking drown yourselves in your goddamn beer, bitches.
Two hours later, Rex texts me.
Rex: Hey let’s just be honest. You’re living with Hubs. Bro1 and SIL will need to stay at our house this fall before they move in November. We will need to use your room. Are you still wanting to keep your bed? You can get a storage unit since y’all can’t fit everything in your house yet.
OP: Your ability to interpret reality is fucking astonishing! You know I live with Hubs. You’ve even BEEN TO OUR GODDAMN HOUSE. I’ve also told you at least ten times we can’t afford nor will we spend money on a storage unit, so please stop fucking suggesting it. If y’all want to help, we’ll get it done faster. I am thoroughly bewildered though, because Bro1 and SIL are keeping their house. Exactly why do they need a single room for a five person family?
Rex: I’m not sure what’s going on. It changes from day to day lol
OP: That sounds more like a tentative situation based on what you just said.
MR: I just need you to move your things out.
OP: Yeah, I got that.
The next day Rex called and I’ve mostly been avoiding her, but I know if I didn’t answer, she’d just kill my soul slowly with hundreds of guilt tripy texts. So, I put her on speaker with Hubs next to me.
OP: I only have a few minutes.
Rex: *proceeds to kill my soul slowly anyway*
Essentially, she tells me that Bro2 who’s now going to be moving into my room until November. Why he can’t fucking move back into his own goddamn room is beyond my comprehension, but who am I to question this fuckery. I now have Rex shoveling faaaamily propaganda down my throat and told to move out ALL of my shit from my room THIS FUCKING WEEKEND, as in FIVE DAYS FROM NOW! I was also instructed, as well to take the couple pieces of furniture and the 2 boxes of kitchenware out of the garage OR I could…… GET A FUCKING STORAGE UNIT. Jesus Fucking Christ and a threesome with a donkey, woman! How many times do I have to tell you? I need to wait to do that with Hubs and I’m NOT getting a storage unit! I asked what happened to Bro1 and SIL needing my room for the fall. She says she doesn’t know. Oh yeah, you cunt? Really? That's your answer? Don’t you mean to say that they never needed it in the fucking first place and you’re full of horse shit scraped up off the cobblestones dated all the way back to the 1860’s?
At this point Hubs signals to me he wants to say something.
Hubs: She needs help. Period. Full stop. You can’t expect her to do any moving until I have some free time. I’m currently working 18hr days, so I’m sure you can understand why this issue is one that we need to solve as a team. If Rex, Dad, and Bro2 want to help, we could possibly have it done this weekend. Would you be willing to help her? I’ll also clearly remind you that we already said we don’t want the bed frame or the mattress, so you can move them out of the room to speed up the process. We will not be moving ANY of the furniture this weekend. We will most likely be by Sunday and move as much as we can.
Hubs has his very own sadistically narc mom, so when she tried to guilt him, he shut that shit down.
She said just as long as it’s out by “fall” she’ll be happy. I remind her that she’s been saying that for the past 4 fucking months and it’s September. It’s already “fall.” She said by November will be fine. FUCKING NOVEMBER!!!! Ok, cool, so just in the nick of fucking time for when all the siblings no longer need to use my goddamn room. Fuck you. I tell her I have to go bash my head in with a 2x4 and she said she does too, but then she spends the next several minutes going into an unrelated work story. I don’t give an ever-loving shit about your life, bitch! Shut the fuck up! Thankfully, Hubs talks over her and ends the call.
My head is spinning like Michelle Kwan at the winter Olympics and I'm trying to make sense of this shit. Every single part of that bullshit was contradictory and a load of insane clown posse. Hubs and I both agreed that from this point on, even though it's MY family and it should be MY circus, that we'll discuss ahead of time what our decisions would be and he would take any phone call or text conversation because they don't know him. They wouldn’t dare lower their shield of perfection. So, my demi-god of a husband wants to be my personal meat shield because we're a united front with what we decide on. They lose any possible grasp of power and control of the situation when I'm ejected from the fucking equation.
At the time, we were struggling financially. I have a decent education, but due to trauma, I don’t remember jackshit. You could tell me I have two BS degrees and one BA degree and I’d argue with you that your fucking mom dropped you on your face as an infant. On purpose. I have zero memories of college. The jobs available to me now are limited and I had to get creative in order to pull myself out of this gaping financial hole I created for myself. Spoiler alert: I TOTALLY DID! BY TOTALLING MY CAR! Now I wouldn’t have chosen this path, nor recommend it (LMFAO), but the equity paid off my debt.
I used to be disappointed that even though Rex has been nagging and nagging about getting my shit out and she would “help” me, she wouldn't lift a dainty manicured pinky to do anything of the sort. Those boomers are booming loaded. My inheritance is substantial, but at this point in my life, I honestly don’t fucking care. LIES!! I tell lies!! It really boils down to a fucking balance of how much bullshit am I willing to put up with so me and Hubs can live out our future fantasy where we own hundreds of acres, the nearest neighbor is at least five miles away, on a ranch with heards of goats, alpacas, horses, Great Danes and Golden Retrievers. A utopia where we can live out our misanthropic pipe dream.
That night during dinner, we were discussing this coming weekend and that we agreed to go and move out as much of my shit as we can, just to avoid the future manufactured and incoherent drama. The following week was full of insanity and lots and lots of alcohol. I’ll leave it here and since I’m officially on vacation and have begun the fucking awesome tradition of day drinking, I’m sure part 3 will soon follow. I just have to add all the sweary bits.
See ya!

2020.09.18 22:17 creepyritual When you go to heaven, they take your skin.

The car accident was a blur. A symphony of shrapnel flying across the highway; the debris of at least three vehicles. At the time, I didn't know who was at fault, or what exactly happened. I just knew pain. Immense, searing pain. I was in and out of consciousness for a while, but I can put together a picture of the following hours, however murky. The moments I do remember will forever be etched into my memory.
I first came to on a gurney in the hospital, rushing through a brightly-lit hallway. There was some chatter about my condition- none of it promising. A simple but ominous sentiment from a nurse stuck out and stayed with me until I was sprawled out in the operating room.
"This doesn't look good."
Shaking on the table, I recall more bright lights, as well as the beeping of medical machinery all around. Many doctors and nurses were at my side, scrambling to keep me alive. Though my mind was an utter mess, I do remember thinking that this was the end of my story. Between the intense injuries and panicked doctors, I could tell death was right around the corner, waiting to take me. My life didn't flash before me, and I didn't think of my loved ones left behind. There wasn't enough time for that. I simply succumbed to an endless slumber and closed my eyes as the flat-line rang through the room.
***
My eyes were fogged, but I could make out the shape of a tunnel ahead; at its end, a light. I made my way to it, cautious, but curious. Eventually, I reached the glow and my vision returned. I was in a bright room; before me, a tall, older gentleman in a white robe standing at a podium. He beckoned for me to come over and spoke with enthusiasm.
"Hello, newcomer. Welcome to heaven!"
He gestured toward the wall behind him. There were no pearly white gates; just a minimalist, red door, void of any knobs or handles.
"Heaven? So I'm... dead?"
The man smiled.
"Yes, indeed you are! But fret not, for this is heaven; a paradise of the afterlife! Would you like to enter?"
I was disappointed that my life was over, but I knew it was inevitable, given the circumstances. At the very least, heaven was seemingly real, and I had been accepted in.
"Yes. I would like to enter."
I stepped forward, but the man placed his hand on my chest, stopping me in my tracks.
"Before you can enter the world above, an offering is required."
I was confused.
"An offering? Of what sort?"
The man smiled again.
"We need your skin."
My face sank, contorted in dismay.
"My skin? But why?"
"I can't provide all the details. Just know that it will be too cumbersome for you on your journey. Don't worry, the removal is a mostly harmless procedure."
Mostly?
The man unsheathed a thin, silver utensil from his robe and grabbed my forearm. He began carving, to which I pulled away.
"I'm not removing your skin. That's above my pay-grade. I'm just marking you for our records. I have to dig deep enough to engrave the lower layers of your muscle tissue. Please don't move."
I reluctantly allowed him to continue. The pain was severe, but it was nothing compared to the injuries I sustained in the accident. When it was over, I looked down to see a string of unrecognizable characters, along with the numbers that made up my birth date; 03041991. The man then pushed the red door open and stepped aside, motioning for me to enter. I asked one more question before progressing.
"Are you an angel?"
The man pondered for a moment before replying.
"Well, I consider myself a celestial overseer, but If that term suits you, then yes, I am an angel."
He motioned again for me to enter. Though not completely satisfied with his answer, I obliged.
The door was swiftly shut behind me, leaving me to survey the area on my own. It was a room, similar to the previous, only void of anything other than myself. I was confused as I walked to its center.
Was heaven a plain, white room?
Just as I was about to go back to the red door, the unthinkable happened. I was inexplicably launched upward at a tremendous velocity, like a meteor hurdling through deep space. In a matter of moments, I began burning up; a blue flame filling my field of view, then orange, then red. As my speed increased, so too did the pain. It was like I was in the hospital again, dying of irrevocable damage.
What was happening? Where was I being catapulted to?
My ascent continued, and with it, a deadly realization. I wasn't just burning. With great difficulty, I was able to tilt my head and gaze down at myself. My skin was peeling. I watched in horror as it left my body completely, slipping into the white abyss below. All that was left was my muscle tissue. Soon after, the flame subsided, and my motion slowed. Steam surrounded me as I landed in a new location.
Though experiencing an insurmountable burning sensation, I was still conscious and aware; alive, if you could even call it that. It was hard to focus on anything but the sharp sting enveloping me, but I was able to comprehend my whereabouts. It was an endless white void. Within it, a plethora of bodies scattered about; skinless humanoid forms writhing in pain, covered only in red, connective tissue, much like my own. They left blood trails as they crawled and slid across the white floor.
My knees quickly gave out, and I too laid down in agony, unable to fight the anguish any longer. I desperately crawled to the nearest individual and spoke with what little energy I had left.
"What is this? Is this supposed to be heaven? Why did they take our skin?"
The grotesque, red face of a person looked up at me and cried.
"They wear it."
A shiver danced down the length of my spine.
"What? Who? Who wears it?"
Before I could receive a response, an electric shock filled my body and jolted me awake. I was once again in the hospital on the operating table, somehow living, albeit barely. I tried to stay afloat, but I wound up drifting away into the bliss of a painless sleep.
***
I awoke in a bed, bandaged up from head to toe. My injuries still stung, but not quite as much as before. A nurse assured me I was okay, and very lucky to be alive. Recalling my experience and unable to see most of my body, I had to ask her.
"My skin? Do I still have my skin?"
She chuckled.
"Of course you do. Some of it will be scarred, but rest assured, it's there."
I sighed in relief, knowing my trip to heaven was just a strange, medicine and shock-induced nightmare. Thank goodness. It wasn't until a few weeks later, when I was finally able to go home, that I would discover something terrible about my wounds.
I've told some about my near-death experience, but never the following, for fear of what conclusions might be drawn about my sanity.
My first day back was peaceful. I relaxed and enjoyed my quaint life; happy it wasn't ripped away from me in an untimely manner. The next couple of nights, however, were anything but quaint.
During my second night home, I woke in a fit of sleep paralysis, my bedroom soaked in darkness and warmer than usual. There, standing at the foot of my bed, dimly lit by a sliver of moonlight coming through the window, was the man from the podium in heaven. His plain, stoic expression was broken up only by the occasional grin; a malevolent smile that made my skin crawl beneath the blankets.
The spike in adrenaline was not enough for me to break free of my chemical restraints. I was forced to endure his presence and watch in terror as he walked to my side and spoke.
"It wasn't always this way, you know."
His body seemed to give off an intense heat.
"Heaven truly was a remarkable place. A world where mortals spent their afterlives in prosperity."
The man grabbed my wrist. It burned, but I was unable to react.
"Thousands of years of routine breeds a fierce boredom. We were born up there; never knowing what it was like where humans roamed. A need grew within us. A craving to explore the world outside of our realm."
He picked off a piece of melted flesh and waved it under his nose like a glass of wine, inhaling the aroma.
"Our forms don't bode well in earth's air. Your skin is the only thing that tempers the reaction; otherwise, we would break down and disintegrate."
He spread the piece of flesh onto his arms, creating a thin layer of protective paste. The heat dissipated.
"You've been marked. We need you back."
We locked eyes, his head tilting slowly in observation as I futilely attempted to scream. His face lowered to meet mine. Tremors erupted throughout my body. Still, I could not move. Then, suddenly, he vanished in a puff of smoke, leaving me alone in the darkness.
Once he disappeared, I was able move again. I felt my wrist, and it was fine. No missing skin. However disturbing this incident was, I knew it had to be a remnant of my dream from the hospital. A side effect of the trauma I suffered. Nothing more than a recurring nightmare. Regardless of this explanation, I was unable to sleep until daybreak.
The next night was stranger still. After brushing my teeth and looking up at the bathroom mirror, I saw something that shook me to my core. It was me, but without skin. A horrific amalgamation of red, muscly tendons made up my facial structure. Behind me, the same man; his voice echoing off the bathroom walls.
"Come back to us."
I fell back into the wall behind me. The man was not there. When I looked at the mirror again, the sight I saw was a normal one.
I chalked this up to being another troubling facet of my psyche, post-car crash. It was clear at this point that I was severely troubled. I started entertaining the idea of seeking professional help in the form of a psychologist. The next night, however, disproved all previous theories about my bizarre state of affairs.
Upon peeling back the bandages on my arm to bathe for the first time, I saw it. There were scars in odd, unrecognizable shapes, as well as a familiar numeric sequence.

2020.09.18 20:47 MrJaraxxus What we need is speed

NEO just passed Tezos in market cap. I was quite surprised so I did some digging, and sure enough it's because of Defi "Flamingo" coming to NEO. That brings me the question - what's the hold up for Tezos? We've been hyped about Defi project since very early this year and we are still not there yet. I was following some timelines and I am seeing they get delayed again and again. For example Dexter initially was supposed to be ready by July, then no update until I asked https://www.reddit.com/tezos/comments/ieyy8z/any_update_on_dexter_or_defi_projects_in_general/ and now it's September. Same thing with Foundation's biannual update, very early on I saw an weekly update mentioning that foundation was working on it and aiming for August release and then I saw the release date got changed to September. I sure hope it doesn't get secretly delayed again.
I get it though, quality code/work takes time. However, don't forget we are very much competing with all the other chains and can't afford to take leisure pace. It's the same for our competitions. We were top 10 in the year beginning and now we are looking at 20. Normally I don't pay attention to this but the rate of decline is alarming. No I am not talking about price but rather relative standing because higher standing brings new interest and we can't just be an echo chamber believing in how superior our tech is. If we don't do something to boost our efficiency, it is a real challenge to remain highly relevant. How can we speed things up in Tezos?

2020.09.18 20:04 AsrielGoatz I fucked my cat on acid and took it on a date to wendy's

Yesterday i was on acid when i was peaking it gave me a very intense feeling of love, Especially when i was around my cat. I soon came to realize i was sexually attracted to my feline companion so i whipped out my cock and stared at my cats beautiful garfield eyes. I looked at my dick as it was warping and changing in size and morphing. The urges were incredibly strong so i began to stroke my cock on my cat as he was changing colors. It was so strong so i picked up my cat with my hand on its belly and began to move it back and forth on my cock. The acid sped up time and my cats fur was moving at an incredible fast speed. It was a rollercoaster of cat fucking. It was straight out of the interstellar docking scene when i came. I came blue all over my cat and he started meowing, and i could understand what he was saying. He told me "Meow" and it filled me with so much love and tingly feelings of retardation. The next day i felt like an autist so i decided to take 4 tabs this time in order to combat my acid tolerence and decided to take my semen covered feline companion on a date to a restaurant. I took the 4 tabs and began to prepare for my feline companions date with a suit and tie. I drove with my semen covered cat to a restaurant called wendy's, It was such a beautiful sight. I walked in with my suit and my cat tucked in my arm. Everything was morphing and i saw beautiful floral patterns everywhere. I could understand everyone when they were staring at me. I know they were jealous of me and my cat's relationship. I sat at a table with my cat across from me and signaled for an employee. An employee walked up to me and told me i would have to wait in line to order. "What the fuck do you mean??? Are you trying to ruin my date" I yelled at him. He looked at me and sighed. I didnt want to ruin me and my feline's special day so I decided to order. A big beautiful maple Bacon Chicken croissant for me and my feline companion. It was at this point when i started to peak on the 4 tabs i took. I was in the middle of sentance when my entire vision began to get covered in fractals and faces of all types of races. I was freaking out and began to let out a long blissful piss into my five nights at freddy's extra large underwear. I couldn't take it, I was transported to another realm in my head. It was the realm of cats. I saw a big grid plane with multiple faces of felines scattered across. I blacked out. I woke up in a hospital surrounded by family members with a look of disgust on their faces. I couldnt care though, All i wanted to see was my beautiful cat. I yelled for my cat but my family members began to leave the room. However one stayed, It was my creepy uncle bob. He looked me in the eyes and told me "What you done did to that cat was damn perverted" "We have done decided that your cat going to be moving to your aunt's house". I was astonished, Why would my family reject this beautiful harmless relationship with my feline. I couldnt believe it, They took away evreything from me except my reddit karma. I yelled "You sons of bitches im gonna post you on trashy!!!!!!!

2020.09.18 19:36 dread_pirate_t TIFU by turning a teenager into a gangster and getting detained for child abuse.

As the last story of Chaz and I’s shenanigans seemed to cheer a few people up I thought I’d break my own vow not to post stuff on Reddit anymore and share Chaz 2, electric boogaloo. This story takes place a couple of years ago when Chaz was 13 and I was still dating hot Finnish girl, from this point known as HFG. I’d known Chaz for about 3 years at this point and he was pretty much a permanent fixture in my life, then as now he’d generally wander over after school and hang out with me and HFG till his dad got home from work. It’s worth noting that back then it was just Chaz and his dad so I’d do a share of looking after him when his dad was away on business or at the office late, he’d grown on me by this point so I didn’t mind and HFG adored having him around so it was win win.
When he went back to school that year there was a noticeable change in the guy, from a live wire that never stopped talking and breaking my balls he became noticeably quieter and more withdrawn. While he was still coming over every day, he was moody and introspective, of course I asked him repeatedly what was up but got non-committal answers and evasion. To my lasting shame I chalked it up to him becoming a teenager and hoped he’d grow out of it sooner rather than later.
Two months later with no improvement and Chaz starting to lose weight and pretty much hide out in his room 24/7 his dad asked me for help in getting to the bottom of whatever the problem was. Having had no luck so far, a plan was hatched, HFG and I were going to look after Chaz for the weekend while his dad was away and find out what the hell was going on.
The trap was laid, having had no luck whatsoever getting him to open up I deployed my secret weapon in the form of HFG, now much as Chaz was my shadow at this point his heart very much belonged to HFG, he had a crush on her so bad it took him 6 months to stop blushing every time she walked into a room (for a small blond pale guy this was not a good look) and while he was always respectful and sweet to her I had no doubt if I died suddenly he’d see the path as clear lol. We arranged for him to come over on Friday night for an evening of pizza and 80s martial arts movies and stay the weekend.
Our trap was then sprung, I worked late on Friday picking up pizza and getting home at 8 so that HFG had 4 clear hours to find out what the hell was going on, as I walked up the drive I got a text from HFG explaining that tears had been shed, not to react and she’d fill me in with details later. I walked into a very red-eyed and snotty Chaz cuddled up to my girlfriend on the couch and my heart damn well near broke, I played it like aces though and started dishing out pizza and put Kickboxer on to watch. By the time JCVD was drunkenly kicking ass Chaz was smiling and had started eating my, HFG and the leftover pizza. After making me promise to show him some Muay Thai moves over the weekend (I trained and still train Muay Thai and Capoeira very very badly) Chaz headed off to bed full of pizza and I got some of the story, while we still didn’t know what was up Chaz told HFG that he was in trouble and he couldn’t tell me or his dad or the school because he didn’t want to be a snitch and “they” had convinced him that being a snitch was the worst thing ever.
The next day proceeded much as our days do, I worked on cars and the only difference from the norm was Chaz seemed to follow HFG less and seemed to ask me to teach him some Muay Thai every half an hour, I kept putting him off and kept that bargaining chip for later. Dinner that Saturday was Chinese food and the movie choice was back to back gangster movies, Usual suspects and Goodfellas, that was my first fuck up, as the credits rolled up on Ray Liotta in suburbia HFG disappeared to soak in the tub and I made my case. Like the Goodfellas and the usual suspects snitching was a thing you did to people outside of your family, going to the cops or teachers was snitching asking your friends for help was “what guys like us do” it took about half an hour of pushing the point that Chaz was Joe Pesci to my Robert De Nero before the cracks started to show and the promise of a training session at my gym the next day finally got him to open up.
Turns out a few of the college kids (16yos in the UK) had been bullying Chaz’s and his friend mercilessly after school for the last few months, the periods of him hiding moping in his room had been after he’d tried to fight back and he’d been avoiding showing me or his dad his bruises. Not wanting to freak him out or cause any more trauma I downplayed the situation as well as I could and promised not to tell his father while promising to help him fix it. It was weird those moments, watching the load visibly lift from those scrawny little shoulders while my blood pounded in my ears and I fought the urge to jump in my car and go see how far I could yeet a teenager (pissed as I was HFG reacted a lot worse, literally murderous).
By the time we got to the gym the next day Chaz was beginning to have a lot of his old spark back, it took me most of the morning and all of the car ride there to convince him that however hard he trained he wasn’t going to be taking on 4 guys twice his size any time soon but he was keen to learn and I was hoping training would give him some confidence. First two hours went well, I took him through some basic punches, kicks and strikes with palm and knee my twin brother called me at this point and I left Chaz with the bag while I went to ask a favour, my second fuck up, I never showed Chaz how to use a reflex bag, about 5 mins into my phone call it would appear he unloaded he best and biggest hook mistimed the next part and got a very hard very fast elastic propelled leather cannonball to the face. I stifled my urge to laugh gave Chaz my t-shirt to catch the copious amounts of blood flowing from his nose and decided a trip to A and E was in order as I didn’t want it setting wonky if it was broken. We were halfway to the hospital with Chaz developing rather a spectacular black eye when I made my third and most impressive fuck up, With his issues at school still in my mind I offhandedly suggested that if anyone asked he might want to tell them his injuries were the result of a big right hook in training rather than losing a fight with a speed bag.
There’s no boredom quite like an NHS waiting room, it was an hour before they took Chaz off to look at his nose and it must have been another 20 mins before my day started to slide into chaos. They were burly police officers, both standing over me waiting to be noticed, the request for a quiet chat was polite and icy as hell, we walked to a small room with no windows and only one chair while the larger of the two clocked the door and the smaller politely enquired why according to the nurse who set his nose training with my teenage neighbour involved hitting him so hard I broke his nose and delivered a mild concussion. Realising he’d taken my advice about explaining his injury a little too literally I did my best to explain the mistake to two very sceptical police officers. After what seemed like an age the smaller policeman went off to verify Chaz’s story, I took a long slow sigh of relief and waited for the truth to set me free. The truth let me down rather badly this time as an hour later I was sitting in a police cell waiting for my solicitor. Once again my tiny sidekick and partner in crime had taken my advice about who a person can and cannot talk to and what they can and cannot say rather literally, when the police spoke to him he clammed up like a wiseguy in front of the FBI and when they pushed him hard on it he told the smaller policeman to go fuck his mother.
Chaz’s dad saved me in the end, ever a slow methodical man and a good judge of character he’d swung by the gym on the way to the police station and snagged the CCTV footage of our training session that day. In a movie I’d end this with an elaborate prank that scared some sense into the pricks bullying Chaz but truth be told it just took me and my twin brother picking him from school for a week and giving the little pricks the hard eye for the bullying to stop.
TL;DR bullied kid tries to learn martial arts, turns into Joe Peci under questioning.

2020.09.18 19:16 ThrowRapaybills WIBTA if I asked my sister to tone down how frequently her boyfriend stays over?

Okay so I have a dilemma. I live with my sister and our close childhood friend. My sister has started dating someone recently and within a week or two of knowing each other he was staying over or here like 5 days a week now fast forward a couple of months he’s here 7 days a week unless he’s working or out of town. If he’s working he comes here after work or he comes here before work.
Yesterday they were having a date night at his house and she was at work from 6:30am and got home at around 3:30pm. The most confusing thing for me was that he was waiting at our house all day for her. When she came home she showered and they went to his house in separate cars? Why the hell didn’t he just meet her at home when she was done work?!
We have a pretty open door policy regarding guests and partners but if someone moves in we’ll have them chip in for bills and it’s honestly not very much. He has his own place and contributes nothing here even though he’s here every day basically.
I want to preface by saying that I love her and I am super happy for her. I’m also in a long term relationship as well (long distance) so while I do miss spending time with her I don’t think this is a jealousy issue. I have explored my own feelings with this and I don’t have a solid reason for feeling this way I just feel like something is off with this guy and I can’t quite put my finger on it. It’s just some internal alarm that’s going off. I have tried SOOO HARD to like him and as far as she knows I do I don’t want to burst her happy bubble. I don’t though I just don’t. I feel as though this level of codependency in a relationship is super unhealthy.
One more thing that I want to add is that 10 years ago I was in a very toxic and abusive relationship and so much of the speed at which this is going reminds me of that. To the point where we were together constantly or on the phone.
Anyhow so reddit WIBTA if I asked her to spend more time at his place to give us some space from him? My roommate is in agreement with him overstaying as well.

2020.09.18 16:22 AMP_US Unofficial Watercool Heatkiller 30XX water block updates thread

I figured start one thread for everyone to check back on instead of chasing post by post. I will do my very best to keep the info here up to date If you see something that isn't included in this post, mention my reddit handle in a comment (with link or screen grab) and I'll update the post.
TLDR (as of 09/18/2020):
Here is what Watercool has said on the German Hardwareluxx forum (translated to English):
HWL 09/18/2020
Thanks for asking! Yes, it's really cool to suddenly be free of pain after 4 years. Didn't know how much it was draining me all this time. Pro-tip, children: if something hurts, go to the doctor instead of thinking "oh, it'll go away on its own"!
Unfortunately, we are currently facing a similar problem that we are receiving very contradicting information. That is why we have not yet included the 30X0 in our compatibility list: at the moment we do not have any information that we consider to be so reliable that we want to publish it under our name. We are known for putting care above speed, and that also applies here: our coolers and the accompanying support information would rather take a little longer, but then really fit, than we would make a quick shot with a subsequent public apology and wave of corrections. You will get our cooler a little later - but you will get perfect quality!
Ultimately, we (as an aftermarket manufacturer) and you (as end customers) are in the same boat: the flow of information from chip and card manufacturers is extremely thin, sometimes contradicting, and confusing. We first collect more data before we commit our cooler development resources for one or the other layout. We assume that we will then have a better picture of which layout promises the best sales figures for us and is also the easiest for you to get. In our opinion, this is the only serious approach given the confusing situation.
Of course, we also carried out tests like this and produced some prototypes for them. The differences in performance were so small that, from our point of view, they do not justify a new variant. Of course, these findings will be incorporated into a new generation of coolers that will come at some point. At the moment we are still absolutely convinced of the performance of the HEATKILLER IV and do not see the need to replace it immediately.
HWL 09/17/2020
There will probably be coolers for the reference layouts of 3080 and 3090 as well as for the Founders Edition. The coolers are expected to be released in 4-6 weeks. We will announce more information about possible pre-orders on our homepage and social media channels. In addition, if something is certain in this regard, I will of course also inform you here in the forum. We do not rule out that we could possibly also make coolers for a custom layout - the Asus Strix and EVGA FTW are particularly suitable.
That as an official statement. As additional information for you: we are heading for a hot autumn anyway: we have to make 2-4 coolers for 30X0 anyway, depending on how the Reference and Founders boards differ. Then the AMD cards may already come, for which we will probably also want to make coolers - according to the rumor mill, these cards will be very promising. Whether we then make a cooler for a custom layout simply depends on when the developers have time to design it again. And last but not least, we have Zen3 in our house, where a new CPU cooler may finally be imposed. Unfortunately, the situation is therefore somewhat in limbo, and we can only recommend anyone who wants to install a water cooler to look for reference cards if possible.
We will add 30X0 to our compatibility list as soon as we have a secure database.
HWL 09/02/2020
Yes, that should be an exciting autumn with the new cards ...
We are currently laying cable routes in our production hall so that the new machines also get power. In any case, we should complete the conversion before the Amperes go on sale. Coolers 📷
for the FEs of the 3080 and 3090 are set, they will definitely come. But 1-2 custom layouts are also supported, I think the Strix already have potential there.
A lot is possible with the new design of the reference boards. The V-shaped free space is great to use ...
A water-cooled backplate was actually already being considered for the 2080 series, maybe we will implement it in this generation
