AITJ For Punching The School Bully?
2023.06.05 05:01 Draxen_Dagger AITJ For Punching The School Bully?
This story came to my mind when me and my friends were talking about who had the worst years of school. I don't know how much I remember but the question is on my mind. This story was when I was in kindergarten through second grade. I was minding my own business, talking to my best friend and the school bully tried talking to us, but we ignored her, as we were informed about her thing for being the one in charge. As me and my friend, who I will refer to as 'Mike' were almost getting to the climax, the bully who I will call 'Nia' stepped in and told us to "Shut up, you two sound like The 4th of July!". We were whispering, but that is how we became her targets. As time went on, we informed the teachers multiple times about the issue. They did nothing, as the kids became more and more sad with Nia's bullying and insults. Until second grade where Nia said"Hey Mike, what does it feel like to fall down the stairs?" Mike: "I don't know, I never have." Nia: "Well, you're about to know." And proceeds to try to push Mike down the stairs. But I intervened and took the push instead.I caught myself before I even fell. 100% of the teachers were female and didn't care what she did. Nia: "Whoops." Me: "Shut your mouth, Nia." "For the last 509 days of school, you have done nothing but bully." "I have had enough of you, your face, your words, and your voice." Nia: "Aww... looks like someone is standing up for themselves, get a load of this guy." Me: "I find it funny how everyone knows you for your bullying, and mostly everyone knows me by one name: 'The God of Fury'!" I responded. The kids called me this as I was the kid who saw red. I resorted to violent acts first and never gave up. Nia: "Do they really?" "Okay Mr. Fury, let's see you handle this." Nia tried to backhand me, but my adrenaline was always high, so was my anger. She then punched me in my chest. My younger self was a not normal, I was the athletic one. Nia: "Just go down." Me: "I don't take hits with kindness." "I take it as a challenge." I then proceeded to punch her in her left eye. Nia: "Ouch!" Me: "I don't care what people do, but let me give you advice; Don't think your actions have consequences and don't underestimate your opponent." I punched her nose with my left hand, then followed it by an uppercut with my right. Me: " Don't mess with anyone else." I said as I put my foot on the middle of torso. As I looked around, I saw that the other classes who had gathered around before I was pushed, were saying my name as I had ended the torture. Teachers finally got through and pulled me off of her and helped her back on her feet. Her nose was covered in blood. Me, Mike, and Nia were interviewed on what happened. Me and Mike told the exact same story which was the truth. However Nia said that she was the one that was almost pushed. And I blocked my friend just to beat her up. The camera which was the only one that wasn't removed yet had all the evidence of who was lying. I was then handed my bookbag and the teachers told me that I am suspended and my mom was there. I explained everything to her, Nia bullied everyone, the teachers did nothing. She attacked me first. So I hit her back. I went back the last day and everyone aside from Nia was cheering me, etc. All the teachers gave me the stink eye. Nia: "I'm very sorry for my actions, I won't bully anyone else." Me: "I forgive you, just be careful with who you pick on." That's what I remember. My mom pulled out of that school for other issues with me and the school. But this brings me back to my question: "Am I the jerk for punching my school bully?"

2023.06.05 05:01 RyderHammer The Backseat
I'm writing this story from the backseat of a car, my laptop on my knees and my heart racing with fear. I don't even know how I got here - it's all a blur of terror and confusion.
It started earlier today when I was walking home from school. The sun was shining, the birds were singing, and everything was just fine. But then, out of nowhere, I heard a faint whisper. It was barely audible, but it made my blood run cold.
I turned and saw...something. A shadow, maybe, or a trick of the light. But it was definitely there, and it was definitely watching me.
I tried to shake it off, telling myself that it was just my imagination. But as I walked, I realized that the whisper was getting louder - and more urgent.
I broke into a run, but I could feel the presence of the shadowy figure following me. Its breath was hot on my neck, its malevolent energy pulsing through the air like a toxic miasma.
And then...nothing. I don't remember anything after that, except waking up in the backseat of this car, my laptop open and this story half-written.
I don't know where the car is going, or who's driving it. All I know is that I'm not alone back here. There's something else - something sinister and malevolent - sharing the backseat with me.
I can feel its eyes upon me, its breath on my neck, its hunger for my soul. But I can't turn around. I can't look into its eyes.
I'm leaving my laptop here, as a warning to anyone who comes after me. Beware the shadows and the whispers that come with them. Don't let them lure you into their grasp, or you'll end up like me - trapped in a car with a monster that will never let you go.
I'm leaving the laptop here, and going outside. I don't know what's waiting for me out there. But anything is better than staying here, in the creaky hours of the night, with that thing that wants to eat my soul.

2023.06.05 05:00 zh_harry Moving to the USA from Canada, looking for Credit Card
Just moved to the USA for work, my SSN is coming soon, and I'm gauging which credit cards I can get. I already have a US Bank account for bill payments and direct deposits.
- Current credit cards you are the primary account holder of: I started my application for AMEX Gold (through NovaCredit or Global Transfer), 90k+$200 SUB
- I have a 1% no-FTF CC, 5x MR Points (with FTF 3%) on dining, groceries (AMEX Cobalt) both in Canadian, and CC with 4 PriorityPass
- FICO Scores: Probably no credit score/history at all. I have a Canadian Credit score equivalent to ~800 here.
- Annual income: $100,000+ (Silicon Valley)
- OK with category-specific cards?: Yes
- OK with rotating category cards?: No
- Estimate average monthly spend in the categories below
- Mostly Dining then Groceries (whatever is near me, then Costco), around 1000/mo combined
- In the future more travel
- Any other categories: Maybe public transportation
- Rent by credit card? Not a big factor right now
MEMBERSHIPS & SUBSCRIPTIONS
- I have a Canadian AMEX Account (Credit Card Only)
- Don't want Business Cards
- Travel Rewards or Cashback
- In Canada I use MR points and Aeroplan (Air Canada/Star Alliance)
- Here in US, I'm looking for MR, UR, or a good recommendation for transfer partners
- Any Cards I'm looking at:
- Well, AMEX Gold (Rewards) or Zero-AF AMEX (Build Credit) card because they can use Foreign credit score
- Chase Freedom Unlimited or Preferred (Not sure if they will accept someone with no credit history and/or just got one AMEX Card, but I want to start on the chase 5/24)
- Citi Double Cash
- I'm not looking for anything that is purely for building credit score, and I'm not looking for anything that has a 1% cashback rate as my Canadian Credit Card with 0% FTF is already 1% back on everything
Open to any suggestions, or comments.
My current plan is to start with AMEX Gold, then see if I can get a Chase Freedom Unlimited or Preferred card next (should I get the Chase card first if I can?). Then I'm looking at the BILT Mastercard, AMEX Plat, Venture X, or Chase Reserve once I have a better credit score.

2023.06.05 05:00 AutoModerator What are the benefits and side effects of Ashwagandha?
What is ashwagandha?
The ashwagandha plant is one of the
most powerful herbs. Various parts of the ashwagandha plant are used for medicinal purposes, with ashwagandha extract mainly being used in supplements. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, a natural agent that reportedly helps the body cope with stress. As a result, it’s believed to be effective at helping reduce levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. It may also therefore potentially help with anxiety and depression too.
What does ashwagandha do? Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Ashwagandha is known to help reduce stress and anxiety. One way it does this is by reducing levels of cortisol, a hormone that is released in response to stress. Additionally, ashwagandha has been shown to improve mood and cognitive function, both of which can be negatively affected by stress. Enhances Cognitive Function
Ashwagandha has also been shown to improve cognitive function. One study showed that it improved memory and reaction time in healthy adults. Another study found that it improved task performance in people with ADHD. Additionally, ashwagandha may help prevent age-related cognitive decline. Boosts Energy Levels
Ashwagandha has been shown to boost energy levels. One study showed that it increased stamina and reduced fatigue in people with chronic fatigue syndrome. Additionally, ashwagandha may help improve exercise performance.
Additionally, ashwagandha may also help improve sleep quality and reduce inflammation. These effects can all contribute to enhanced energy levels. Regulates Blood Sugar Levels
Ashwagandha has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels. One study showed that it improved insulin sensitivity in people with type II diabetes. Additionally, ashwagandha may help reduce fasting blood sugar levels and improve symptoms of diabetes.
Additionally, ashwagandha may also help lower cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease. These effects can also contribute to improved blood sugar control. Lowers Blood Pressure
Ashwagandha has been shown to help lower blood pressure. One study showed that it improved blood pressure in people with hypertension. Additionally, ashwagandha may help reduce stress and anxiety, both of which can contribute to high blood pressure. Is ashwagandha safe?
Ashwagandha is generally considered safe for most people. However, it can cause side effects such as stomach upset, diarrhea, and vomiting in some people. If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, it's best to avoid ashwagandha. What happens when you take ashwagandha daily?
As a sleep aid, ashwagandha may help people get to sleep faster and stay asleep for longer. It is also used to promote male potency. Ashwagandha has a variety of health benefits, including reduced blood sugar levels, inflammation, mood, memory, stress and anxiety relief, as well as an increase in muscle strength and fertility. Depending on your requirements, dosages vary from 250 to 500 mg per day for at least one month.
When it comes to stress relief, ashwagandha may be as effective as some prescription medications. A 2010 study found that the herb was just as effective as lorazepam (Ativan) in reducing stress and anxiety. click the link below to learn more about abhwagandha, and its real health benefits.

2023.06.05 05:00 davidellis23 Is "partnership" housing ok instead of Co-op or Condo?
I'm looking to buy a small apartment. There are 10 other people in this building. It's a lower price, but it's run by a partnership instead of a co-op or condo board. Everyone has to pay in cash and has to be approved by the 9 other partners. Everyone follows bylaws they wrote. My lawyer was concerned that it's not approved by the NYC attorney general. Another lawyer I talked to said it was ok.
Is this partnership apartment ok? Are there more risks and liabilities than a co-op/condo?

2023.06.05 05:00 Crazy_Albatross8317 The games of Bloody Game/ Game of Blood
**This is something that I could have just commented on the most recent episodes but I think spoiler-free discussions about the actual games deserve their own thread** I think the PD had a great concept to work with but they didn't really implement it in their games (betrayals and backstabs is the opening intro for this show, at least for season 1). I understand that it is hard to design games but they should look back to The Genius games where the games are designed to be played in teams BUT there are loopholes for an individual to win by sacrificing the team to the other team or individual games where having partners give you an advantage (I think for the most of season 2 these are the majority of games). Honestly they should just ripoff Liar Game games or get permission or something lol.
I guess I'm just disappointed that there aren't a lot of twists or sabotage and betrayals as advertised compared to season 1. Everyone was so focused on Wild Team vs Mansion Team

2023.06.05 05:00 GrimGears (M4A) Tossing out a net of plots to see who's interested.
So, first thanks for taking the time to read. I'm getting a big rp itch, and I'm going to toss out a few plot ideas to see who's interested. I tend to lean heavily towards romance/slice of life and action plots. I roleplay mainly on discord and use a literate, third person style. Also, I strongly prefer using oc. I'm mainly active in the evenings thanks to work and would prefer adult partners just for anything even remotely related to romance for less awkwardness.
Fandom wise, I have a few ideas for the following canons:
My Hero Academia Stardew Valley Poke or Digi
On the original side, I have a few ideas relating to the following prompts:
Zombie survival The Darker side of Hollywood Supernatural relating to ghost hunting A forbidden romance set in a war torn kingdom.
If any of these catch your eye, feel free to message me and we can talk more details.

2023.06.05 05:00 KinkyJinxy Landlord needing to redraft lease to include "pet deposit"
my partner and I are looking at getting a dog, and our current lease says that a pet will increase our rent by $50.00 per month. The landlord just informed us that bring a pet into the premises will cause an addition $500.00 to be put in as a deposit. I asked him where in the lease it mentioned that and his reply was that it wasn't rendered in our current lease because we didn't have a dog. He is going to update the lease to include that.
We have a good relationship with our landlord, and renewed our lease this past spring. He's known we've been interested in a dog since prior to the renewal of our lease. My spidey sense is tingling because it sounds like he's trying to yoink 500 from us.

2023.06.05 04:59 Blendbox Experimental psychiatric treatment theory
F.R.O.M Fear Reveals Our Monsters
From nightmare creatures, to spiders to being stuck in confined spaces there's a lot of 'worse fears' going on here. The laws of physics don't apply (power lines, far away trees, weird time stuff) so the town can't be real, but it's close. In the same way that dream logic is close to reality, but if you scratch the surface things start to feel off.
The worms didn't kill Smiley, it was Boyd's indignation ("my blood is your blood now mutha#$%^$"). They talismans do nothing other than make people un-afraid which deprives the monsters of their power.
Maybe this is a shared or collective dream state induced help people cope with their fears/trauma. Maybe the Matthews are here trying to cope with the loss of their son. Maybe we see many people from high trauma backgrounds arriving in the town. Maybe the tree in the road is the start of a narrative that allows people to slip into this shared consciousness, in the same way a hypnotist tells you a story to put you under.
The images in the intro look a lot like the drawings of children who've been through something significant.
Maybe the monsters are the people who have hurt us, which is why they all seem to have unique characters & personalities.
Maybe the boy in white was the first patient to use this experimental method. Perhaps he was the son of it's creator, desperate to help their loved one cope. Maybe his conscious got stuck and the doctor has been sending in new people for decades to try and help him find his way home.
Or maybe they are all personalities living in one shattered mind like in Identity (2003) I'll be fascinated to see how it all plays out.

2023.06.05 04:59 Blackberry_Melodic hyposexuality might be ruining my relationship
so I've been diagnosed bipolar since I was 15 (I'm 20 now) and it runs on my mom's side of the family. seriously, like 7 gens of bipolar women. anyways, my partner and I have been together for almost two years now. when we first got together, I was very hypersexual. like doing the deed multiple times everyday.
well, we got into a big fight a couple of months ago and every since then my sex drive has gone the opposite direction. it's very difficult for me to get turned on or even semi interested in sex, so my partner and I made a kind of "calender" so that it's planned and I can prepare myself.
it didn't work. I found myself making excuses to get out of it and just the idea displeasing me all together. my partner hasn't said its upset him at all but I have a feeling it is. I love him and still find him attractive but intimacy is becoming a real issue.
I don't know how to go about talking about this with my partner or therapist. any advice?

2023.06.05 04:58 ThrowRA_hh88341 advice on how I (26m) can support my girl (23f) who was abused in the past.
sorry if this is the wrong thread to ask in, I just got reddit today specifically to ask about this. normally I wouldn't ask something like this, but im looking for all the advice I can get.
I (26m) started dating this girl (23f) about 11 months ago, I love her and I really don't want to lose her. ever since we started dating, she's always been a little scared around me I felt like, she's shaky, jumpy and apologizes like crazy. a few months ago I sat down with her to talk about it, she opened up and told me about her past relationship which was extremely physically abusive. last week she called me because he was banging on our front door, all he said to her through the door was that he couldn't believe she found another man to put up with her and that she better come back before I leave.. I got there before the police but as soon as he saw me running up to him he ran away from me, so I didn't get a chance to talk to him or beat the crap out of him.. police didn't do anything since he technically didn't threaten her or touch her, but from what I know even in the relationship authorities did nothing for her. ever since then she's been really scared. I am concerned about why he randomly showed up after two years, from looking at other posts on her I'm assuming he just found out she was in a new relationship. if anyone here has been in this situation, I know where this guy works.. do I go and talk to him? I mean he did run from me, if I make it clear I know where to find him & im not afraid to fight I feel like that would help. the only thing I'm worried about is I won't be able to control myself if I get close enough to him.
also for anyone who has been in an abusive relationship, was there anything your next partner did that comforted you? I've tried to do everything to make sure she knows she's safe but she still flinches a lot, and jumps at every noise, breaks my heart. she also freaks out at every mistake she used to get hurt for, breaking things, spilling drinks, burning food etc. little things people do every single day. she got out of the relationship 2 years ago, she met him when she was only 16 & he was 22 (I do not understand how he's not in prison, but I am trying to look into taking legal action against him/restraining order) the thought of a man hitting my girlfriend at any age makes my blood boil, but a 22 year old man hurting a 16 year old girl and hardly faced any consequences?? my reason for bringing up the age actually though is I always thought she acted a little young for her age, and I think its because she didn't have the chance to be young. might be something to bring up to her therapist instead of asking on here but again anyone who can relate please chime in, this is all very new to me. I know this is going to be hard, but I'm willing to do whatever to make it work. the legal advice isn't needed because we are meeting with someone on Tuesday to discuss best options going forward.
I don't know what to do for her, I've made sure not to leave her home alone & I've started taking her to therapy, we go together because that's what she wanted. she doesn't like therapy though, she has. a harder time talking there than when we are alone. I'm just laying up in the middle of the night doing research on it and thought it couldn't hurt to ask for any personal experiences, even if you have any input that I didn't specifically ask for ill take anything. she already lost 5 years to this asshole, including her last few years of high school. I don't want her to miss out on her early 20s because of him too

2023.06.05 04:58 ThrowRAgooober Chronically wheezy cat. I feel like I’ve tried everything I’m capable of.
My cat, Borris (11m), has had a wheeze/whistle for maybe 5 years now. I’ve taken him to the vet probably 6 times to try to treat it/figure out triggers if it’s an allergy/ anything to help him. No vet has helped to diagnose it without 2,000ish$ worth of panel tests. I’ve had basic tests done (the ones that they will give without doing the whole panel) to make sure it’s not curable or easily treated to no avail. I’ve spent more in vet visits on shots and blood work than I have on myself going to a dr in that time. Gotten steroid/allergy shots, changed diets and even moved to a new build home after being in a dusty 1920s apt to no avail. In fact he seems worse since moving.Any advice on how to get a diagnosis without taking out loans? Or what is most likely the culprit? Benadryl seemingly does nothing (vet recommended). Idk what to do. I feel terrible hearing him wheeze and thinking there’s more I can do. (I’m living at home and disabled suddenly so I especially don’t have money to spend). Any suggestions would be appreciated.

2023.06.05 04:58 AdhesivenessNo3773 21 [M4F] #SF- The most casual friends with the sluttiest benefits.
So with the summer coming up, we all want to have someone to cuddle up and spend time with. I'm looking for that someone. But I'm looking for a very special kind of relationship, the friends with benefits kind.
I've done it before and it's such a wonderful feeling when you get it right. When you're able to talk to that person every day, and joke around. Go on little dates and talk about anything. Even talk about other people you've done it with or interested on doing it, while you're still in bed after just having sex. It's basically like being in a relationship without the deep feelings or the commitment. That's what I'm looking for. We will respect each other and trust each other. Be honest and communicate. That's how it will work.
I'm hoping to find someone who can be just as sexual and adventurous. A slutty partner in crime basically!
Before this gets too long I'll just say a couple of things about myself. I'm very respectful and I like to think I'm pretty in control of my feelings. So the main problem of fwb which is jealousy, wont be a problem with me as long as we are honest and open. I like to joke around a lot and make terrible jokes, and I'll definitely laugh at your terrible jokes as well! I've been told I'm very easy to get a long with and easy to talk to.
So message me if you're interested for some friendship and action!
I’m 5”8, 160lbs, desi, black hair, brown eyes :)

2023.06.05 04:58 Folie_Blue My partner “can’t remember”
I (F/26) caught my partner(M/35) in February. Woke up with a bad feeling and found hidden messages of three other girls on his phone. Two were under their own names with explicit photos and constant conversation etc. one was under a fake name “Ryan” with sweeter messages, less raunchy. Still instances of partner asking for “pics”. Confronted him got “I don’t know, I don’t remember” to most of my questions. Stated he felt bad for them and couldn’t stop talking to them. Said his PTSD causes decision paralysis. I got as much info as I could and made it clear I was upset and but wanted to sort it out if we could. I believe in him, and we’ve made so many plans. I felt disconnected from the events and just wanted to put it back how it was. Flash forward two months, I find another name in his FaceTimes. Make that 4 people he cheated with. All the calls were prior to Dday, he said he’d forgotten about them, fight/makeup/move on. He promised there was nothing else. Be it paranoia or curiosity attempting to murder the cat I posted him to group that compares notes on local men and it brought up the real “Ryan”. She was super apologetic and explained she’d been looking for me since he blocked her on everything to explain her story. Turns out she had no idea I’d existed and he was on a trip with her and her parents three days before he proposed. Every day he wasn’t with me he was with her. She had pictures of them together, texts from holidays he missed with me he’d spent with her. All until January when he guilt broke up with her the day before my birthday. I was so angry, and sad. He’d promised all the girls were just people to talk to. That he didn’t meet up with anyone. I confronted him and he said “I don’t know/I don’t remember” I told him I was sick of the lack of info and he said he’d been good he hadn’t cheated since Dday, he kept his promise. I almost ended it all, but something about it made me feel for him and I let him stay. He knows I’m angry he knows I don’t trust him, he knows he gets no more chances. I just want to know, am I being foolish? Am I always going to find out more and more? Any advice is welcome I feel like I’ve disconnected from reality and can’t see straight.

2023.06.05 04:57 golf-lip Will i have to prove lack of payment in small claims court?
I had a roommate stay with me for two months that was not on the lease. We were supposed to split utilities and rent evenly. He was also on my phone plan. The last month he shorted me $200 for rent, he also owes $300 for his phone, and has not paid me for half of the utilities. What he did pay was in cash so theres no proof of payment either way. After he shorted me on rent and threatened my partner and i changed the locks to the house and said we can set up a time where he can come get his stuff because he said he did not want to pay the rest of rent and stay (i have this on recording). Just wondering if its worth my time to take him to small claims and if i will have to prove lack of payment for bills.

2023.06.05 04:57 R9Dominator [PC/PlayStation?/Xbox?] [2000-2010] FPS/Shooter and puzzle sci-fi
Platform(s): PC 100% and perhaps PlayStation/Xbox 360
Genre: FPS with elements of 3.rd person I think
Estimated year of release: Around 2000-2010. It's been around 15 years since I've played it
Graphics/art style: Bleak, futuristic, moody. If my memory serves me correctly, style and graphics were similar to something like Max Payne.
Notable characters: Protagonist is male, with maybe a partnewife talking to him telepathically?
Notable gameplay mechanics: Iconic mechanic was using your bow(?) some kind of thing to essentially take form of your ghost of sorts. This lead to the puzzles where you would have to switch forms to progress through levels.
Other details: I can remember very little, it's merely a fragment of memory at this point. I know setting was really moody, almost depressing. It was closed space with limited exploration (linear levels).

2023.06.05 04:57 Slight_Notice_5391 Heart ?
Hello everyone. So I have been having arm discomfort, jaw discomfort, and chest discomfort on and off since Thursday. I went to the ER and my chest x ray, ecg, and blood work were fine. My right arm feel like something is squeezing every so often by my elbow(it’s weird) I had a cardiac MRI done about a month ago and that was normal and so far everything has been. I have health anxiety due to heart disease running in my family. I am not asking Reddit for health advise persay since I know you all aren’t doctors, but I just don’t know if I am over thinking or if I should once again go to an ER. I worry they are going to think I’m crazy and I know my husband doesn’t understand how the whole anxiety thing feels so he gets annoyed when I constantly go get checked. I just can’t shake it when I feel the pains

2023.06.05 04:57 Ill_Tomato4109 I Don’t Agree With My Family Anymore.
I (18NB) grew up in a Bible Belt-esque home. Big white conservative christian household. Growing up, I was taught that gay people are evil, that everyone is out to get me, and that I would die for my religion. Looking back and explaining to others, it’s cultic. Over the last few years, I’ve been reprogramming myself and exploring the world beyond this household. I’ve discovered that I am Aromantic, Asexual, and Agender. I no longer hold any of the conservative beliefs my parents tried to indoctrinate me into. I feel more free and happy when I am away. My parents are extremely conservative. They believed COVID conspiracies, such as 5G and vaccine microchips. They have several anti-pride shirts that make me feel awful when I see them, as well as anti-vaccine and pro-apocalypticism shirts. The church they attend is much the same, spewing hateful, apocalyptic, and cruel messages that demean lgbtq+ individuals, people of other faiths, and even people of color. That we will die for simply being Christian, despite not being at risk at all in the United States. I just want to say it out loud, while I’m at home for the summer. I am aroaceage, and I am proud. I am happy with myself and don’t need a romantic or sexual partner. I don’t need gender. I am happy with who I am and I am free. Happy Pride.

2023.06.05 04:57 fm123455 30 [TF4TF/ENBY] Poly Trans gal Looking for friends (or more) in Philly
Hey y'all, this is the first time I've done something like this but I figured it probably doesn't hurt to try.
I'm a recent Texan Asylum seeker who ended up in Philly somehow. I've got no friends in the area, and it's just me, my ace partner, and my dog.
I ended up getting hurt during the move and am feeling super lonely. I used to live in the area, but before actually being me. I tried going to pride today, but ended up rolling my ankle on my injured leg twice thanks to some uneven roads.
Roughly 6'0 280lbs.
I'm demi sexual lesbian, so if we hit it off as friends maybe we could do some more? I'm a Service top leaning switch.
Fun wise, I really like: playing games: Elden Ring and Souls titles, Spelunky 2, and coop games. Competitive multiplayer not so much, because I get really competitive 😅😅
Reading manga and other graphic stories, mostly Yuri, but I enjoy a lot of fields from Isekai to fantasy and romance I'm a fan of cooking and food but I haven't been able to recently bc of everything 😭
I've been dying to go to the museums near me but between the injury and social anxiety I've been too torn to go
Some cool friends to adopt me and hang out and do low key fun stuff. I don't know how long it'll take before I can heal proper, so I won't be able to climb mountains or top cuties for days.
That said, I'm generally willing to experiment with both sexy and non sexy stuff. I'm pretty much brand new to this world and am a COVID baby gay.
Generally speaking, I'm only interested in people who'd consider themselves Lesbians, which could include butches, femmes, women and enbys.
Men I'm not really into unfortunately thanks to some not great experiences. That said, if you're chill about it maybe, though I would still have a long preference with lesbians, then bi folk, straight trans Men/masculine enbys, then cis men are a pretty close hard no unless you're really chill.

2023.06.05 04:56 Fire_Wolf_89 Why Chi-Yu is an underrated Defog user
We all know Chi-Yu as a fierce wallbreaker, with its incredible 135 special attack and signature ability Beads of Ruin effectively raising it to base 197. Paired with its great offensive typing in Dark and Fire, nothing can switch into it, even in the Ubers tier where it currently resides. However, until now, no one except for me has understood its incredible potential as an offensive Defog user that provides unmatched utility.
Chi-Yu @ Heavy-Duty Boots
Ability: Beads of Ruin
Tera Type: Rock
EVs: 20 Atk / 196 Def / 252 SpD / 40 Spe
- Fishious Rend
At first glance, this set looks like absolute garbage. However, it has been optimized to bring out the best in Chi-Yu's colorful movepool. Defog is obviously the main appeal of this set, with Chi-Yu's unique mix of power and incredible 55/80/120 bulk forcing out would-be checks, letting it get a Defog off for its team. It may seem counter intuitive to use a Spa-lowering nature in conjunction with Flamethrower, but Chi-Yu is actually strong enough to still make use of it. For example:
0- SpA Choice Specs Beads of Ruin Chi-Yu Flamethrower vs. 252 HP / 4 SpD Kyogre in Rain: 270-299 (52.5 - 57.4%) -Guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery
As you can see, Chi-Yu still threatens its biggest check in Defensive Kyogre while being able to invest the rest of its ev's into bulk. Running Fishous Rend on a utility mon is another strange choice on paper, but with exactly 20 Attack Ev's, it can still pick up 2HKO's in the majority of the relevant metagame. This is best explained with another damage calc:
20 Atk Chi-Yu Fishious Rend (170 BP) vs. 4 HP / 252 Def Blissey: 401-455 (62.8-74.3) -- Guaranted 2HKO
As you can see, Fishous Rend 2HKO's specially Defensive mons trying to switch into an expected Specs Flamethrower or Overheat. This becomes a straight-up OHKO in rain, which many defensive and balance teams attempt to make use of as their sole answer to Chi-Yu. Roost is self explanatory, giving Chi-Yu a reliable recovery option to consistently use Defog throughout a game. 196 Defense Ev's allows it to live 5 Choice-Banded Sucker-Punches from Chien-Pao, and 252 Special Defense Ev's maximize its Special bulk to tank hits such as Flutter Mane's Fleur Cannon and Spidops's Draco Meteor. 20 Attack Ev's pick up the aforementioned 2HKO on Blissey. Finally, 20 Speed Ev's allow Chi-Yu to outspeed uninvested Arceus forms and Jolly Klefki. Tera Rock stops Ekiller Arceus and Quick Attack Zacian-C from sweeping if you're in a pinch, but you often won't be using your tera on Chi-Yu due to its already great defensive typing. Finally, Heavy-Duty Boots is mandatory to allow it to fulfil its role as a Defogger, since constantly switching into Stealth Rocks and other hazards would decrease its longevity over time.
While this Chi-Yu set is powerful can and can be a huge contributing factor to winning games, it isn't flawless. Losing its timbs to Knock-Off would invalidate its role entirely, and its middling speed let many top offensive threats like Uxie, Wugtrio, and Avalugg-H threaten to revenge kill it or deny a Defog from being used. Choice Scarf Dudunsparce is a great partner to make up for its flaws, with STAB Boomburst being incredible spammable and Rattled letting it switch into Knock-Offs while still maintaining its speed boost. Delphox or Crocalor can be used to form a bulky Fire-Spam core that appreciate Chi-Yu's hazard removal to let them switch in consistently, and Vivillion can run an item that isn't Heavy-Duty Boots, letting it run an offensive item like Silver Power or Life Orb to become a threating sweeper.
Overall, Chi-Yu is a fantastic Defog user that should not be slept on. Its unique combination of bulk, power, and utility carve it a niche in the SV Ubers metagame. I am not expecting this to be the main set for Chi-Yu, as more offensive sets continue to dominate the meta, but I hope that the discovery of this innovative build will expand the viability of this funny little murder goldfish.

2023.06.05 04:56 dropbbbear Had a dream where Valve released a "Bot out of Hell" update
It may have been a bit too hot in the room.
I had a dream that Valve actually updated TF2, and added a new MvM map where for some reason the robots were dinosaurs. To promote the update, Valve partnered with an arcade to do TF2 themed laser tag. Demo also got a new shield unlock, looking like something out of Portal, that let him short distance teleport around instead of charging. Other classes got new weapons too. Also, everything was made of Mega Blox.
We were all complaining that you had to unlock the new weapons by getting crates to open in a specific order.
I woke up in the dream and realised it was all real and not a dream. Then I actually woke up, and realised that it was in fact a dream.
