Tall People Looking for Their Tribe

2023.05.29 04:03 NightCities13 188 Years Later-Game 2-Rest of PreGames

Steward and Oceanette lightly chatted to one another about which beach they liked the best, while Zara and Avon talked about the latest Capitol fashions that they liked. They all got into their chariots when it was time.
Steward and Oceanette moved down the Avenue of Tributes, and halfway down, the bubbles on their outfits popped, causing loud cheers from the Capitol crowd.
Zara and Avon earned a high mention in Anderson Fashion, while Steward and Oceanette were called as the Best Dressed, and money was sent home to their families.
Steward and Oceanette arrived at the training center, and saw Lucille and Glam (both 1) and Lara and Viktor (both 2) training separately. This saw the career pack dwindling down to two, sometimes three pairs from this Games forward, with District 1 not volunteering every Games. The two 4s got into the pool and swam, and also used tridents.
Zara was throwing knives when she saw Paulette (3) trip and injure her knee. Perry (5) walked up to her and helped her bandage the knee, which saw an alliance start between the two. From now on, an alliance between 3 and 5 was quite frequent, sometimes also including District 6.
Meanwhile Lorraine and Harvard (both 6) camouflaged themselves into a variety of backgrounds, and Veronique (7) threw axes at targets. Avon focused on sewing rather than weaponry, and Rylo (9) used a scythe. Romeo (10) trained with a machete, while Dalia (11) worked with plants. Sarah and Vernon (both 12) worked in the medical station.
Oceanette and Steward scored equal 7s for usage of tridents. Meanwhile Zara scored a 6 for throwing knives, and Avon scored a weak 4 for sewing armor.
At the top of the pack were Lara and Viktor, who both scored 10s, while Lucille and Glam scored 9s. Also near the top, Rylo and Romeo scored 8s.
At the bottom of the pack was Paulette and Dalia, a twelve and thirteen year old who both scored 3s.
Panem Today revealed the odds on television that night, with Steward earning odds of 7 to 1, while Oceanette had odds of 8 to 1. Zara had odds of 12 to 1, while Avon had odds of 19 to 1.
Interviewer and commentator Plutaria Snow seemed excited for these Games, and said that any tribute could win the Games.
Plutaria had her long blonde hair in a beautiful braided style, while her blue eyes shone with excitement.
Oceanette wore a aqua dress, and had her ginger hair down in curls. She spoke about wanting to win for her family, and how she was nervous but excited to fight in the Games.
Steward wore a blue suit, and had his brown hair carefully combed back. He talked about wanting to prove that District 4 was strong, and how they produced the third most amount of victors thus far, and he wanted to be another one.
Zara had her blonde hair down in ringlets, and she wore a purple dress. Zara talked about being raised by her brother, and how she couldn’t wait to return home to him and his family.
Avon was next, and he spoke about his sister and her children, and how he wanted to win in order to support them.
Game Maker Juliana Ricci was the last to be interviewed. She pushed her dark curls from her face, and said her hint word, which was “pine”.
The next day the tributes were awoken, fed, and taken directly to the hovercraft. Halfway through the ride, they had their trackers implanted into their arms.
Tube Room
When the tributes arrived beneath the arena, they were taken to their tube rooms.
Octopius visited Oceanette first, and hugged her, wishing her luck. He advised her to ally with Steward, and stick with him.
Octopius then visited Steward, and hugged the boy close, reminding him that his calm attitude could take him far.
Coutura visited Avon first, and advised him to run away from the bloodbath.
Meanwhile she gave Zara more advice, hugging the girl close and telling her to find a weapon and food, and steer clear of other tributes.
Once all 24 tributes were in their tubes, they rose up into the arena.

2023.05.29 04:02 jazzeriah Sometimes I Just Hate People

We went to a fast casual chain and got churros and they were covered with cinnamon and sugar. They were delicious. My kids had some too. This chain doesn’t even serve with plates, just the main bowl the bunch of churros comes in. So inevitably there was a bunch of loose cinnamon and sugar on the table by the time we left; nothing else, just that. My kids are small and it was even tricky for me to eat the churros without making a mess.
I wiped down the table as best I could but didn’t super clean the whole thing because my 2 y/o was tripping and falling as she was heading to the door of the restaurant with my wife and two other kids and I apologized to a worker there and said it was my kids and I was sorry about the table (even though this place doesn’t even have you bus/clear your own tables, it wasn’t my job but I was trying to be conscientious and respectful) and the guy just looks at me and says: “From one parent to another, do better.”
Thanks a lot. Like I wasn’t already stressed out enough. I hate my life.

2023.05.29 04:00 TheChickenIsFkinRaw [FH2TERMINA] I try to explain some Moonscorched character transformations (part 1):


In FH2, due to the effects of the Termina festival, people undergo a slow process of losing their sanity, slowly turning into monsters that represent their worst aspects - self doubt, self loathing, and regrets - this includes monsters like Bobby, and even the 14 participants who have unique forms based on their own pasts, which I'll try to further explore below
By going near the The Hollow Tower and touching the doors, you can also forcibly moonscorch fellow participants through Rher's divine power. Staying outside too long will also catch Rher's attention and his divine influence forcibly transforms you, resulting in a game over

1 Karin (Valkyrie):

As a journalist, she feels deep guilt and tries to rationalize it. Her profession profits from wartime, which could make her feel like a vulture preying on the corpses of fallen soldiers. However, she also tries to look at her work as a way of honoring the fallen, similar to the role of a valkyrie.
As a result, her Moonscorched form is a fusion of both the vulture and the valkyrie, reflecting her conflicting feelings about her career and the fallen soldiers that she's immortalizing

2 Levi (Weeping Scope):

Levi had a sad abusive childhood. Right from the start, he had a violent drunken father who murdered his mother in a drunken stupor. Afterwards, he was sent to St. Domek's Orphanage. Needless to say, the corpses you find in the orphanage basement, torture chains and ritualistic blood circles kinda summarize what happened next. At the age of 13, he was conscripted and became a child soldier. He was talented to the point of having his own squadron of child soldiers, having been sent in a suicide mission. This resulted in bitterness, pain, a severe decline of his mental health, which ended with taking comfort in drugs (heroin).
The form of the Weeping Scope represents this traumatic past - the gun fused with his head embodies his child soldier past as an expendable faceless weapon of war; the constant cries are due to his crumbling sanity; and he's completely naked in a fetal position because at heart, the dude's just a very sad child who never had the chance to grow up

3 O'saa (Mastermind)

O'saa grew up in Abyssonia, having experienced chaos and bloodshed due to different beliefs. He pursued an education in the temple to escape his fate as a pawn in the war, but soon realized that religion was being used as a means to control the masses by the ones above, and that he was once again fated to act on someone else's whims. He found an ancient scroll and ended up learning about yellow mages - mages who harnessed the power of gods for their own gain, so he left to join them. During his time at the Yellow Mages, he went on an expedition to the Dungeons of Fear and Hunger, where he got to experience some of the paranormal dread that fills those cursed halls.
O'saa is at his core a greedy and ambitious person who wants to be in control, and due that very reason, has a great aversion to being a another person's plaything; this is a belief that influenced the course of his life several times. As a mage, he ironically has rhabdophobia (fear of magic), because he's afraid of being a mere puppet to some higher mystical being's power, hence his obsession over harnessing the gods' powers for himself. His monstrous form has his head covered by some kind of fungus and a floating eye - these represent both his great fear of being constantly watched and controlled by some higher being, just like cordyceps control ants to do their bidding

4 Abella (Chaugnar):

This one's a bit of a stretch. As a young woman going through war, she had to watch many of her close relatives and friends being shipped to their deaths on the battlefield. Feeling helpless is what drove her into electro-mechanics - it was the best way to help those around her. With the rising death numbers of close friends/family, she started increasing her workload and further overburdening herself, since it was the only way to contribute to her Homefront. Slowly she became a very hardened person - almost like a man of the house. On the other hand, she appears to be somewhat attractive as a woman, being quite sexualized throughout the game (e.g. remarks by Henryek) and Caligula even attempts to rape her.
Her form of an elephant (almost penis faced) hulking man-like thing embodies those oxymorons of her life - she's an attractive woman who must've faced quite a lot of harassment, but she also had a very troubling life, having become a true hardened man of the house for the sake of her closed ones and homefront

Closing thoughts for part 1

I really enjoyed trying to analyze some of these character's backgrounds and correlate them with their moonscorched transformations - at the end of the day though, a lot of it is subjective and I might be missing information. I would really like to hear your own thoughts and opinions on them, whether you agree/disagree and any possible corrections on my theories

2023.05.29 03:59 27Ari27 My CR is at 93% and I’m worried about being kicked out of the LOP

I always keep my completion rate at or above 95%. Because that’s the requirement for the Large Order Program, which is a HUGE source of my income.
Yesterday it was at 95% when I pulled into a pizza place at 1:45am to pick up two orders. They are in a populated area near the bars and it was Saturday night. They were so unbelievably busy that people were spilling out into the sidewalk, and the inside was wall to wall. The restaurant had recently marked themselves as closed on the customer app even though they were still supposed to be open for a little while, presumably due to how busy they were inside, but these two orders must’ve trickled in before they did that. I called from my car to see if they were even going to make the orders or if I should have them cancelled. They didn’t answer. I could not bring myself to try and push through the sea of drunk people and then fight for the workers’ attention, so I dropped both orders.
My CR is now at 93%. The last day of the month is Wednesday, and I’m panicking. I don’t even care about top dasher, I just don’t want to lose the LOP. So I’ve been taking as many deliveries as possible to get it up the two points but it won’t budge.
Am I panicking over nothing? Has anyone actually been kicked out of the LOP for not meeting criteria?

2023.05.29 03:58 Serious-Avocado8454 Which temple to go through for the first time? (Utah)

A friend of mine is approaching her 1 year mark and will be going to University of Utah for grad school this Fall. She plans on going through for endowment at a temple near that area. She asked me to be her escort and I am honored. She also asked what temple would be best to go through for the first time. Well, I have never been to Utah actually (I know, crazy right?). I know all temples are beautiful and unique in their own way. In regards to crowds, interior, and exterior, which would you pick if you were going for your own endowments again?

2023.05.29 03:57 Snoo-24603 Personal vent

Before my husband and I married back in July we took a break . We weren't together for 5 months. During that time I did some personal growth and sought life advice from my family and others. I knew I still loved him and the more time passed I knew I wanted to be with him. When we reconnected he also seemed to be happier and happy to hear from me. We started talking again. I had full intention to be back with him and it seemed like he did too. It was about a month back into the relationship that I found out he had been talking to one of his coworkers. They had texted back and forth all day everyday and had hour long phone conversations. Something we had never even done . :( I was devastated. I started to wonder if they had started to talk before I decided I wanted to take a break. He said he was devastated when he heard thats what I wanted but I couldn't and still can't shake the thought that he was interested in someone else even before that. I feel haunted. I'm always thinking maybe he only cut all ties with this other girl and quit his job because he felt obligated too. I had made it very clear that it was me or her.. I later met up with this "other woman." Shes the opposite of me. She's blonde, very thin, and has a "i don't give a f**k attitude " shes also a single mom of three who works hard and takes care of them and herself. I have kids too and do my best. I'm taller, im bigger and I have a lot of self esteem issues . Which I know is a turn off. God I hate it!!! Anyways when I met with her she talked my ear off for over an hour. She swore they never did ANYTHING. they hung out a few times but that was it. He took her and her two boys out to olive garden. Which he swear was not a date. Went to her house.... he says only once, to the bar, and to work related events. People at work were starting to even "joke about them being a couple. Towards the end of our conversation she informed me that she "maybe only did one thing that was wrong." She said that my now husband lent her cash for her boudoir session. She said she sent him a picture after the fact. I REPEAT ONLY ONE PICTURE . she showed me the photo. It was risqué but not nearly as much as the others that had been taken. I freaked out. I said that was wrong and that I wasn't happy about it. My heart broke and still feels broken. Considering we've had some major issues with our sexual life doesn't help. I now feel even worse than I did before we took a break 💔 on top of that he deleted every message, phone call, and any pictures that were taken during the month that we were separated. I'll never know the full extent of what was or wasn't talked about. How he or she felt. I can't help but feel like I already do know. I can't talk about it because we both shut down in our own ways. I think he feels like I already know the truth so he shouldn't have to confirm to make things worse. I should just get over it, right? We were separated, We fought, we sorta worked through it but the unknowns still haunt me. Any personal experiences or advice?

2023.05.29 03:56 autotldr Chinese warships detected passing through Taiwan Strait as China continues to step up military activities around Taiwan amid deteriorating U.S.-China ties

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 20%. (I'm a bot)
BEIJING - Taiwan's Defense Ministry said Saturday that it detected three Chinese warships, including the Shandong aircraft carrier, passing through the Taiwan Strait, as Beijing keeps up pressure on the self-ruled island it claims as its own.
In a tweet, the ministry said that the three vessels were headed north along the Taiwan Strait at noon and were steering along the west of the median line - an unofficial boundary once tacitly accepted by both sides.
China has stepped up its military activities around Taiwan in recent months amid deteriorating U.S.-China ties.
China claims Taiwan as its own territory to be brought under its control by force if necessary and regularly sends ships and warplanes into airspace and waters near the island.
Twelve of the aircraft had crossed the median line of the Taiwan Strait or entered the island's air defense identification zone.
In April, the Chinese military said it was "Ready to fight" after completing three days of large-scale combat exercises around Taiwan that simulated sealing off the island in response to Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen's trip to the U.S. Last August, China intensified war games around Taiwan, with missile firings and incursions into Taiwanese waters and airspace following then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's visit to Taipei.

2023.05.29 03:55 autotldr Russia's Aeroflot Airlines Resumes Flights to Cuba July 1st

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 68%. (I'm a bot)
Aeroflot will return thanks to a "Presidential order" from Vladimir Putin, said Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Chernishenko.
HAVANA TIMES - The Russian airline Aeroflot will resume its commercial flights to Cuba on July 1, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitri Chernishenko announced on Thursday during his visit to Havana.
Until now, the air service between the two countries had been limited by the international sanctions imposed on Moscow after its invasion of Ukraine, and travel had been restricted to the main tourist centers of the Island of high interest to Russian visitors, such as Varadero and Cayo Coco.
On the eve of the high tourist season, in October 2022, Nordwind Airlines resumed its direct flights between Moscow and two Cuban destinations, Varadero and Ciego de Ávila, through a route near the North Pole until it reached the North Atlantic.
The reactivation of the flights was made known within the framework of a business economic forum, held in Havana, where the Cuban government has offered Russian businesspeople the privilege of using land in usufruct for 30 years.
Economically suffocated, Russian aviation is not going through its best moment, and according to the Federal Transport Control Agency, in 2022 it made more than 2,000 flights with expired parts due to supply problems because of Western sanctions.

2023.05.29 03:54 bloodsweatandtears Career nanny.. to parent or not to parent?

Hello. My fiance and I are 28F & 29F respectively. We have been together for 3 years and are getting married this summer. I have a Bachelor's degree in education and am a career nanny. My fiance is a restaurant manager. We have both always wanted to be mothers. We have a few hold ups:
  1. Wanting to be financially and mentally stable for a child (we both feel we could improve in both aspects).
  2. The world our child is being born into (specifically screen time/the internet).
For #1, I am having mixed feelings. While I do feel that we could improve, I also feel like: is anyone ever 100% "ready" for a child? You can prepare as best as possible but at some point you have to make the decision. Everyone who becomes parents has things they "could improve", but they manage, right? Also, financially, there is a unique benefit to my career as a nanny: childcare options! I have the ability to bring my child to work with me in many positions, until they are school-aged. I would get to spend that critical time with them, and save costs on daycare while earning household income.
For #2, I feel mixed as well. There are real, concrete problems with our current society. But people have been saying "I don't want to bring kids into 'this' world" for literal decades. There will always be something to complain about. As for the internet/social media problem, I do feel a lot of that can be mitigated by proper parenting.
If you've read this far, thank you. I'm just looking for general feedback on the issues I've raised here. Getting this out in writing also helps me process it.

2023.05.29 03:53 PanZielynsky Should i give up?

Hi, I was together with my gf for a little bit over a year. there is 2 years difference between us, I'm 20 and she's 18. We truley loved eachother. We had better and worse times in our relationship but we had very healthy relationship (at least I think). Last two weeks have been rough for me. I realised in how much trouble I am on my studies and my psychic health was very low. I got very dissapointed in myself after overthingking everything bad that is currently happening to me. It all started whem my gf went to bigger city for a students whole week party. She has older sister and brother in that city so she wasn't alone. When she got there I of course felt a little bit jealous because i knew most of the students there want just to hook up and that's all. I always trusted her and I know she would never cheat on me so it was calming me down. Problem was when she was there we didn't talk much. Of course as everyday I wrote her a goodmorning message and a few goodnight messages. During the first day we didn't even talk much but i get it, she was partying hard and at the end she apologized to me but she was exhausted and told me we will talk the other day. What made me very sad and started my mental breakdown was that in the next couple of days she was responding even less than in the first day. I hate when she is online doesn't read my message and then answears it after few hours but when i answear immediatley she still responds after few hours. I stopped texting her first so we nearly didn't talk at all. One day all our messages were my messages saying goodmorning and then goodnight. After she came back I already felt bad with myself and we talked a bit but she had to rest so another day passed. After she rested she told me she has to cry after what happened on her trip and that she doesn't want to talk about it with me. Of course I felt very sad that there was something which she was not telling me but as I always do I did not ask her about what she was crying. Thing that made me even more sad is that after coming home we barely talked but she immediatley met with her best friend (who is a guy that I was and still am a little bit jealous). In the couple next days we were talking a bit more but it was clear that i felt bad and she realised that she tried to help me. The problem was that i didn't know if i want her help because i don't remember the last time i felt that bad and in my entire life i was always dealing with my mental problems by myself. However after we talked for a bit i felt better. Next day. We were still talking about how i feel, she was trying to make me feel better. While talking she sent me by accident message to someone else that was saying if they can meet some other day to clear something out. I obviousley didn't know who was that message to and what was it about but it made me nervous as for the first time in my life i was afraid she actually betrayed me. After talking about this she told me she met a guy there. A 5 years older guy that she liked by his looks. She told me that when she looked at him she felt something she didn't feel for a long time. I got heartbroken. She still didn't want to talk about it until we meet. When we finally met she already told me that she wants a break. After talking she told me that she liked that guy, that he tried to frenchkiss with her but she didn't want to and that they were sleeping in one bed because there was no other place to sleep. She also told me she gave him a small kiss during some drinking game. I got very jealous as I would never kiss anybody else while we are together. It doesn't matter they were playing some stupid game, she coul've just said that she has a boyfriend and doesn't want to do that but she told me that for her it's not a cheating. She told me that she needs break from us being boyfriend and girlfriend but she still wants to have contact and meet but just like normal friends. It was yesterday. Tonight it suddenly came to me that we are no longer together because even to we agreed we have a break we still acted like a couple( we kissed and a little bit more but not too much). Now I think about all that and I have no idea if she will want to be with me again. I spoke with my bestfreind nad she opened my eyes about how she treats me. Of course noone is perfect but I was willing to do anything for her. I did all I could to make her happy but now I realised I was being treated not in the way i wanted. I told her multiple times that on her instagram )or any other social media) there were no pictures of us together. She told me that she doesn't add pictures with other half because she doesn't like to. I understood that but she adds pictures with other guys that are her friends or like in this case she added a picture with a bunch of guys she met that are mostly her sister's freinds i feel less important than them. I got rly hurt after she uploaded pictures from her 18th birthday party. There were pictures of every single person that was on this party except me. I even took one or two pictures that she added. We don't hold hands together while in public or don't show we love eachouther in public in any other way. I dont like seeing couples kissing on the streets so i get why we dont do that but holding hands is something we were doing at the beggining of our relationship, now we dont do that. She changed her wallpaper from picture of us to some random picture which is also weird because she was the first one to set picture of us on her wallpaper and seeing how happy it made her i did the same and only changed it with different photos of us. There are things like going for a bicycle that she is afraid to do with me but loves to go with her male bestfreind. She is also afraid to go anywhere where we will be alone ( like somewhere on holidays or any other free time we have). She doesn't want to visit me on my studies. We also never had sex. It's not hurting me that much because she told me that she wants to wait to be sure and so that she wont regreat anything but its been more than a year and i was sure i wanted to make love to her. Not only because I love her looks but i love entire her and being so close to the person you actually love must be amazing. Now we have break and we are supposed to act like friends but I am starting to think if this was truley healthy relationship. I told her about some issues multiple times and she didn't change a thing. I want a random person to look at this and tell me what do they think about it all. I just can't see clearly because I still love her and I don't want to abandon her but I don't know if it has sense or if she won't abandon me.
Sorry for bad english btw
oh and also i forgot and now i dont know where should i put this. I always pay for ewerything. It does hurt because i don't have time to work myself and i hate when my parents give me money but if not that money i know we wolnd't spend a lot because she is not the richest person i know and she thinks everything is a waste of money. So when i have to chose between spending money and making her eat or drink something or not it's obvious I want best for her, even if it means I have to spend money everytime we see. I also pay for gas to my car because to meet i have to drivearounf 45 km in one way.
Now i see that even asking total strangers on the internet what they think about it made me feel a bit better

2023.05.29 03:52 diamonds-inthesky The OOTP gods were shining on me for this playoff run!

The OOTP gods were shining on me for this playoff run!
This all began yesterday when I was sat in my garden playing OOTP at the trade deadline. I have a low budget and with 2 of my main stars having opt-outs after this season, I thought it might be wise to move at least one of them before the deadline in order to speed up a rebuild. Before I made a decision, a bird took a mighty crap on my leg that made a disgusting mess. Now, I don't believe in luck but as this is supposed to be "good luck", I used that sign as justification to keep my roster together for a potential run. I added a couple of cheap right handed bats for almost nothing and went on my way.
This turned out to be a good decision as I would end up going 46-13 post deadline including a 19 game winning streak that was the best I've achieved in my 41 years in charge of the D-Backs. I was now full of confidence and managed to advance to the NLCS after beating the Dodgers in 5, which was a little unnerving at times.
The next round is where things really started to pick up. Facing the A's (recent expansion moved them to the NL, they won the WS 3 years ago for the first time since 1989).I would blow a 5-3 lead in game 2, losing in 13 (7-6) to split my first 2 in Arizona. In game 3, I blew a 6-1 lead in the bottom of the 9th culminating in a walk-off 3-run HR. After 40 seasons, this isn't unfamiliar but it never gets less painful and it was hard to not feel like the game had decided this just wasn't my year!

Nearly rage quit!
The series remained back and forth, going all the way to 7 games. Game 7 was an incredibly tense game, entering the 9th locked in a scoreless tie. I gave up a solo HR and then an insurance, ticky-tac run and accepted my season was probably done but with 2 out and a man on 3rd (who would score on a wild pitch), my #4 would dig in, fouling of 5 pitches before blooping a single. Up to bat in the most crucial spot, Chris Prutsman, a second year left fielder who I'd acquired in the summer who's hitting attributes are 50 across the board except for 70 power. He'd been very mediocre all season but after hitting 15 of his 36 HR in the last month of the season, he'd been in my line-ups for the playoffs, even winning MVP in the NLDS vs LAD with 5 solo HR in 4 games. However, against Oakland going into this final at-bat he'd only garnered 3 hits, all singles and no walks in 5 starts. The regression seemed fair and I was happy with the fight until he delivered a 2-run, walk off, series clinching BOMB.
This set-up an even more epic showdown in the World Series with the evil New York Yankess, 59 years after Arizona beat them to win their first ever WS and 17 years since their 2nd WS meeting in 2043, also won by Arizona. I won another title 4 years later in 2047 for my 3rd but had since lost in the WS 4 times (3 to CWS).
To add another layer of juiciness to this, Jacome Escobedo, the Yankees star LF had played his first 7 seasons with me before leaving in FA due to an unaffordable price tag for the D-Backs. He has been a superstar since 21, somehow not winning MVP yet, finishing 2nd 6 out of his 9 seasons.
Game 1 was close but an early grand slam from Chris Daniels (Likely to be 1st to Escobedo's 2nd in MVP this year) was too much to overcome. Yankees win 7-5
Game 2 was a tighter game, entering extras tied 5-5. A 3-run HR in the top of the 11th for Yankees #6 hitter (his 2nd of the game) proved to be the decider. Yankees win 8-5
Game 3, I came out with a lot more fight early, taking 3-1 and 5-3 leads but ultimately the Yankees are gonna Yank, hitting 5 HR, this was just horrible. Yankees win 7-6
Game 4, the player I had contemplated trading at the deadline, 2B Ken Steinbring, shows up big time in this elimination game, 3 HR & 7 RBI. D-Backs win 10-3
Game 5 was the turning points of the series. Going into the bottom of the 8th, I was down 5-2 and had long accepted all my magic was over. Steinbring delivers another solo HR in the 8th to make it 5-3 going to the bottom of the 9th
My #6 & #7 hitters come up first, they strikeout and groundout respectively. I nearly gave up here with my defensive SS who's hitting .140 in the playoffs coming up followed by my back-up C who had been subbed in earlier after my starter ruptured his Achilles. I pinch hit for my SS bringing in Mike Willis, one of the bats I acquired at the deadline, a slightly above average back-up RF who's mostly on the roster for chemistry purposes. Anyway, he strokes a double. Nice!
Now I have to decide whether to roll the dice with my awful C with 2 outs or sub him out knowing that I have no other replacement and will almost certainly lose if I don't win the game in this inning. I pinch hit using the other bat I acquired at the deadline, again, an extremely mediocre bat that hadn't cracked my line-up since joining the team. He blasts a triple, scoring 1 to put me within 1. Glorious!! It immediately seems bittersweet though as I anticipate a quick groundout next followed by the Yankees celebrating on my field but no, Tony Penaloza (LF) steps up and cranks his 8th HR of the season (35 power) to give me the most unexpected comeback win! D-Backs win 6-5
Game 6 is a slugfest, despite my ace being on the mound. I manage to withstand multiple rallies from NYY with very careful pitching moves. D-Backs win 11-7
After taking a 1-0 lead early on, my all or nothing starting pitcher delivers one of the strangest games ever (5.1 IP, 3 H, 4 ER, 9 BB, 9 K, 118 P) That is a team record for walks by a player in any game by the way! So yet again, just like game 5. The score is 5-2 going into the bottom of the 8th. And yet again, Steinbring comes up in the 8th and hits a 2-run HR to cut it to 5-4. After a clean top half, the bottom of the 9th opens up with my #6 hitter who delivers a single after fouling off 4 in a row. My #7 steps up and bunts him to 2nd.
I know I'm going to use my 2 pinch hitters again for my SS & C (again, this will leave me without a catcher if we go to extras). My only decision is in which order to use them. I elect to use my 1B who tripled in game 5 first as I have most faith in him but he sadly grounds out to SS, keeping the runner at 2B.
So here it is. Mike Willis, he's started 38 games for me, it would've been much less too if it weren't for injuries and how strong my record was down the stretch that allowed me to rest some regulars.
On a 2-0 count, he connects and just gets one OUT OF THE PARK (see what I did there). I can't lie, I went crazy and have now spent the next 2 hours documenting it as this is by far the greatest season of OOTP I've ever played and trust me, I've played a lot!!
The history and stories that were connected to this series made it truly EPIC! Not only the crazy back and forth games, unlikely heroes and big hits. But also, coming back from 3-0 down to beat the YANKEES! in the World Series. Does it get any better? I kind of feel like I should end this save here as it's only downhill now.
If anybody made it this far, I hope you enjoyed it!

2023.05.29 03:51 wickedkiss85 I think I hate my sister-in-law

I’ve never hated anyone before. Not my parents and grandparents who abused me, the partners that cheated on me (or the girls they cheated with), or even the terrible friends who fat-shamed me behind my back but were super nice to my face.
But the level of animosity I (29F) feel towards my sister-in-law (28F) is something I have never experienced before.
I grew up in poverty. I spent time on the streets as a teenager because I was fat, goth, and queer, and my parents weren’t supportive or loving in the slightest. And while I can admit that my in-laws are not exactly the most emotionally available or affectionate people, I have never once seen them fail to put their daughter’s needs above everyone else’s — including their son’s (30M) needs, who I am married to.
But if you were to ask her about her parents, everything she would have to say would be about how abusive and cold they were. Ask my husband, however, and he would say, “Oh they were. Just not to her.” My in-laws started going to therapy a few years ago and openly admitted to everything they put my husband through, right down to favoring his sister over him. It was an emotional breakthrough in their relationships and his bond with them has only grown stronger since then.
My sister-in-law sees this as them favoring him (and by extension, me) over her.
My in-laws are very wealthy people, and when my husband and I got married a few years ago, we were living with them due to roommates who would not comply with COVID restrictions, and at the time I was caretaking for my father with cancer. We were afraid to put off our ceremony any longer because of my father’s health and had a very small, backyard wedding in order to make sure he could be there.
Because we couldn’t have the wedding we always wanted, my in-laws decided that they wanted to buy us a house as a wedding gift. I didn’t want that because I didn’t want to feel like we owed them, but they said as long as we were open to letting my sister-in-law live in our basement, as she was leaving a toxic relationship at the time, they wouldn’t hold it over our heads. We agreed.
We never should have.
From the minute she moved in with us, she controlled everything. If she thought we would paint the walls a color she didn’t like, she would call her parents and complain. We wanted to get a second dog, and since she already had more than 10 pets and was told not to bring more into the home, she screamed that it wasn’t fair and threatened to harm herself over it. When we were trying to conceive, she said it was emotionally triggering for her because she believes she will never bare children of her own, so we reluctantly decided to stop trying.
Then she moved her new boyfriend (30M) into our house without asking. And we had never even met him.
He told us he had kids, but his ex fled the state with them and that he would be unlikely likely to bring them around. We encouraged him to pursue custody, while my sister-in-law would actively tell him, “You’ll probably never see them again anyway.” She’s an inherently pessimistic person in that way. It made me angry. Still, he stayed. And then he proposed. And then they got married.
And no, they didn’t move out. In fact, she started pressuring us to leave. She knew we wanted to move to a larger city, but I have two younger disabled siblings that I help my older sister care for, not to mentioned three nieces that I love as my own. When my nieces would come over to stay a weekend with me, my sister-in-law would complain and whine that she felt trapped downstairs because being around the kids was too “triggering” for her and her husband (who never complained to us about them being here). When she accused them of being so loud that it “nearly killed one of her rabbits” (even though they were on two separate ends of the house and her husband said they didn’t actually hear much of anything), I finally hit my limit when my father-in-law said, “It’s for the best if you just don’t bring the girls over there for the night again.”
And then, just a couple weeks ago, they received full custody of his kids and she has rubbed it in my face non-stop since they got here.
“I can’t believe I get to be a mom. It’s so amazing.”
But the second the kids go to bed for the night, she comes to my husband complains that they are too energetic and out of control. She complains that her husband is spoiling them too much and is a lazy father. He works full time and is on-call during the weekends. She doesn’t do anything at all for work, but mothering and chores are apparently “totally breaking her down”.
This woman knows that I am struggling with my reproductive health because I am chronically ill, and that my husband and I have been wanting to start our family for fucking years. And then a family just falls into her lap and not only does she have the audacity to complain about it, she even had the nerve to say to my face on Mother’s Day, “I’m just not optimistic about it. If I can’t have kids of my own physically I don’t see how you ever can.”
She is the most manipulative, entitled, and selfish person that I have ever met. She never thinks of anyone besides herself, and she never does a single thing unless it also benefits her.
And now, on top of everything else, we have to leave our house because the state won’t let them keep the kids if they don’t have them “in the proper space”, and having two separate families sharing a four bedroom, two bathroom house isn’t the “proper” space. And according to my in-laws, well, “Since you guys don’t have kids yet, they kind of need that house more than you do.”
My husband is insisting that we use this time to move to a new city, like we’ve wanted, but we have nothing financially prepared and we only have weeks before we have to be out. And that means getting no time to say goodbye to my family, not even my nieces, before we go.
I blame my sister-in-law for this. For all of this. I lost out on a puppy because of her, on time with my family because of her, and on committing to fertility treatments because of her. She has made my life a living fucking Hell, and I don’t want anything to do with her ever again.
Ever. Period.
TL;DR: My sister-in-law moved in with my husband and I a few years ago, and all she has done is fight to manipulate and control everything that happens in my house and in my life. Her actions have directly affected everything from my husband and I not getting a second dog, to whether or not we have kids of our own, and now I have to move away from my family because she is taking ownership of my house. I feel like she’s tried to ruined my life and I don’t ever want to see her face or hear her voice again once we move out.

2023.05.29 03:50 randintalt Addicted to Feminity

I (19M) have known that I'm AGP/trans for about 2 years now. I've had days/weeks where my dysphoria gets really bad and I think about being a female throughout the day. Somedays I reduce that feeling by going outside and being with friends but as soon as I come back home, those feelings intensify again.
I believe I have 4/5 of the AGP fantasies - Transvestic, Anatomic, Interpersonal, and Physiologic. I long to wear feminine clothes (mostly lingerie, dresses, and heels), have breasts and a vagina, have sex with men as a woman, give blowjobs to men as a women, and occasionally wish I could menstruate, lactate, or get pregnant. Not sure if it's the best way to describe it, but I'm addicted to nearly every part of feminity.
I don't really know how to improve this. I'm going to start attempting to give into parts of my AGP desires (mostly shaving entire body and dressing up) but I don't think that's going to help much. I'm not a very attractive male and finding a girlfriend at all is turning out to be impossible.
If I transition I'm pretty confident I'll never be able to pass as a woman, and I would probably loose a lot of the people I'm close with right now including my parents. My friends will probably be fine with it but I know they won't treat me the same way again and we won't be as close. I could still have a decent career but not one I'd be content with. Further, if I transition, I believe I'd eventually start focussing more on trying to be female than on my career; although, I already do that to a certain extent. Something I have often thought of doing is microdosing in stealth to get small but noticeable breasts but again I'm not sure how much that would help. And going on hormones potentially means I won't be able to have kids ever. Something I do have going for me if I transition is that I already have a relatively big butt.
One thing I do know I should do but haven't yet is talk to a therapist. Does anyone have any advice?

2023.05.29 03:47 DeathReaper130 Dallas Wings Game #3 Analysis

In this post as the title states, I'll be recapping and giving my analysis on what I noticed with the Dallas Wing's 3rd game today which was against the Chicago Sky.

Part #1 - Offense:
Arike Ogunbowale: Arike single handedly lost the came for the Wings today. If we take a look at her stats, she scored 27 points which was a team high, got 5 rebounds, 3 assists, and 2 steals. However, these stats greatly inflate her performance on the court today. Arike scored 27 points on 25 shot attempts, went 9 - 25 (36%) from the field, and 4 - 12 (33.33%) from beyond the arc. This was a very inefficient performance from the Wings' leading scorer. I know Arike has never really been known to be an efficient shooter and that she's known for being a volume shooter but this game was just another level of inefficient. She was taking the worst shot opportunities starting from the get go in the 1st quarter, which was a foreshadowing of things to come. Pretty much every time that she got the ball, Arike was chucking it up. It didn't matter to her whether there were 3 defenders in the paint waiting for her to come in or whether there was a defender draped over her while taking a jumper. Don't get me wrong, Arike is a fantastic offensive player but her inefficiency and unwillingness to take better looking shots is what's dragging her down as well as her team and it was very evident from this game. There were multiple shots which she took this game were I honestly if I was the head coach, I would have pulled her from the game. One example off the top of my head was about mid to late 4th quarter when the Sky were only up by around 5 to 7 points. Arike brings the ball up the court, gets a screen from Sabally and while the defenders switch and are still near Arike, she ends up taking a one legged contested three and missing everything but backboard. There were many other examples such as rushing transition shots just to get to shot of and taking heavily contested jumpers. I've mentioned before in some of my previous Wings' game analysis posts that Arike just seems to have a constant itch to shoot the ball. Furthermore when she either misses or doesn't get the opportunity to shoot the ball, she gets very upset, which brings me to my next point about her mental game. Arike's mental game is weak. If things aren't going her way or her shots aren't falling, she fails to ever stop and think why that's so. Instead, she'd rather continue taking bad looking shots, which leads to her getting mad at herself and the cycle starts all over again. Honestly, I'm fine with Arike taking 20 - 30 shots per game if she wants to since I know her offensive capabilities. My only thing I wished she'd do if she's taking that many shots per game is to take good looking shots and not force shots just because she can. Furthermore, I wished she also realized when enough is enough. If her shots aren't falling, either stop taking shots for a little, recompose, and shoot again or pass to your teammates. Compared to last game, Arike was a downgrade for the Wings and you'd only know by watching the game since, as mentioned before, her box stats inflate how good she may have looked this game. Overall, she was the primary reason the Wings lost today and I just hope down the stretch that she wakes up and uses her team to its full potential than thinking that she's the only person on the team and that she should do it all by herself.

Satou Sabally: Sabally was most definitely the MVP of the Wings today. She had the best game overall in terms of both offense and defense. She ended the game with 24 points on 9-16 shooting (56.25%) and had 8 rebounds. Unlike Arike, Sabally has a great well-rounded offense. She can take the three when necessary and hit the mid rangers jumpers efficiently. Furthermore, she is great in taking the ball into the paint and getting an easy bucket with her footwork and size. On the defensive end, Sabally also did quite nice. While she didn't really have the stats to back it up, she always provided great pressure against whoever she was defending and secured the defensive rebounds for the team when Natasha Howard was occupied. The offense should run through Sabally more often as she has great IQ in terms of what to do with the ball when it gets in her hands.

Natasha Howard: Howard did decent this game, ending with 14 points on 6-16 (37.5%). Her efficiency, like Arike, wasn't the best but atleast her shot quality was much better than that of Arike's. Furthermore as I've mentioned in my previous 2 Wings' game analysis posts, Howard is being limited in her production as she is using her energy to play high energy roles both on the offense and defense. In a general WNBA, most shots come from within the paint. Therefore for Howard, she's in charge of both guarding the paint and preventing shots from making in that range as well as offensively taking shots in the paint to score. She doesn't really have much other help defensive wise in the paint asides from Sabally sometimes so Howard gets tired easily as she's constantly playing high-level offense and high-level defense. Teaira McCowan still being out is a big blow to the Wings but most importantly to Howard as she is the sole person being relied to do work in the paint for both offense and defense. I definitely think once McCowan comes back that Howard's offense will take a rise as she doesn't have to put that much energy and focus on the defense as McCowans can help her out then. The only issue is however that McCowans hasn't played in the past two games and is expected to miss the month of June to play overseas. If that still pans out, then Howard is going to be in for a very rough month.

Rest Of The Team: I thought the rest of the team offensively did just ok. Dangerfield stepped up this game as well and provided 11 points on 4-8 (50%) from the field. Besides her and the starters however, nobody else scored more than a few buckets here and there. Burton did poor today offensively going 0-5 (0%) from the field and having only 2 points, both of which were from free throws. Then again to be fair, the bench really didn't play many meaningful minutes and Arike was chucking shots so there wasn't really many opportunities to shoot for everyone else. The one thing that I did like was that Maddy Siegriest got a little more playing time today. She score 6 points on 2-2 (100%) from beyond the arc in only 7 minutes. She's definitely a dangerous scorer when she gets the minutes so I'm curious to be seeing how that goes on throughout the season. I thought Siegrist should have been the #1 overall pick in this year's rookie draft going into the draft so I do think the Wings got a steal with her at #3. As she gets more minutes and develops more, I could definitely see her becoming a reliable scoring option off the bench for the Wings.

Part #2 - Defense:
Natasha Howard: Once again, I thought Howard did decent on defense. She was getting outplayed a bit against Elizabeth Williams as she was able to use her height and size to her advantage against Howard in the paint. Howard ended up with 2 blocks and 1 steal in the game. As mentioned previously however, we won't be able to see the full capabilities of Natasha Howard until Teaira McCowans is back in the starting lineup. Howard has to conserve her energy as she's expected to play a primary role in both the team's offense and defense with very little help on the defensive end in the paint with McCowans not there. Especially in this game, Howard looked very tired and the Sky were able to capitalize on this in the second half as they pounded away in the paint on the offense.

Rest Of The Team: I thought the team did alright once again. The Wings' defense was able to lock up Courtney Williams for most of the game which was good. Furthermore, I loved how the defense kept moving around and switching on plays. There were moments in the game where the Wings got help defense in the paint and left an open person for the Sky. As the ball moved around to that open person, the Wings' players all shifted over to the open player until the defense was set up back to normal again. This was a good sign because it felt that the team was playing defense together rather than individual players playing defense at times. Furthermore after allowing Mabrey to go off from beyond the arc in the first quarter, the Wings' perimeter defense tightened up very nice in the second half which is a good sign as well. Help for Howard in the paint is the main issue for the Wings defense so hopefully someone can step up in that regard.

Dallas Wing's Defensive Shot Breakdown: I've mentioned this in a couple of posts but I've noticed a pattern in the WNBA which I call the 50-30-20 rule. Essentially, this means that 50% of all shots taken and points scored by a team are in the paint, 30% of all shots taken and points scored by a team are in the mid-range, and 20% of all shots taken and points scored by a team are from behind the arc. Therefore, I'll be listing how the Dallas Wings' defense affected from where the Storm were forced to take their shots and score their points from just like in my previous game analysis.

Paint: 20 - 39 - 52% of all shots taken and 54.05% of all points scored (not with free throws)
Mid Range: 8 - 17 - 22.66% of all shots taken and 21.62% of all points scored (not with free throws)
3 Point: 6 - 19 - 25.33% of all shots taken and 24.32% of all points scored (not with free throws)

By looking at these breakdowns, we can see tat the Wings' defense wasn't all that great. They managed to allow the Sky to reach the 50-30-20 goals for nearly all the zones, especially the paint zone. There was a slight difference in the mid range and beyond the arc as the Wings forced the Sky to take a little more shots from beyond the arc than mid range shots. However, that's wasn't really that big of a difference. Allowing 52% of all shots taken and 54.05% of all points scored (aside from free throws) in the paint was the biggest downside of the Wings' defense, even if it was a small percent change. Whenever these percents go higher than 50% for the area inside the zone, the defense has for the most part lost. Paint defense is always the most important defensive zone to be taken care of. In this game however, the Sky were able to do better and take advantage of the Wings defense in the paint, leading to the win for them.

Final Recap: Overall, the Wings played just average today. I know there's a lot more potential for this team and it just depends on whether they can make the necessary adjustments and changes. The Sky was also the first "good team" I'd say that the Wings played so far this season so this was a good indication to see how the future games look for the Wings as a whole. The most important takeaways from this game in my opinion are that Arike needs to be much smarter when the ball is in her hands and the Wings need to figure out some help for Howard on the defensive end while Teaira McCowan is injured. The Wings didn't get blown out this game and only lost by 6 points, which is two possessions. Maybe if a couple of Arike's chucked shots were thought through better, the outcome could have been different but we'll never know. After today's loss to the Sky, the Wings are now 2-1 in the season. They play the Minnesota Lynx in two days so hopefully changes can be made accordingly.

2023.05.29 03:45 PopeSpringsEternal What the other villains are up to now in my Skylanders revival world

It's been 7 years since Imaginators (and 12 since Skylands and Earth came into contact), and the rest of villains have decided to follow the villain senseis' down of path of good... or at least neutral. Here's what they're up to:

Sheep Creep is still leading the Sheep Rights Movement, but non-violently this time.
Gulper took up acting, and now plays Officer Gulper on Captain Happy's World of Learning, an absurdist parody of the Earth program Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood.
Tussle Sprout opened a flower shop thanks to the power of antihistamines.
Buzzer Beak retired to his home in Phoenix Psanctuary. His family welcomed him back with open arms.
Slobber Trap is now a professional wrestler for SWE (Skylands Wrestling Entertainment). People complained that he won too much, but then Vince McMage got ousted, and originality is starting to reign. That pun was unintended.
Bruiser Cruiser started his own mech-fighting league.
Broccoli Guy and Chill Bill have become beloved radio cohosts. Chill Bill even got to become the first troll to broadcast a professional scoreball (a Skylandic sport combining basketball and soccer) game.
Troll 1 and Troll 2, formerly of Shrednaught got hired by a construction company.
Cuckoo Clocker is now the lead singer of the ska-punk band The Songbirds.

Brawl and Chain is now a deliveryman for the AIPS (Americ Isles Postal Service).
Chomp Chest became a professional eater and, according to Chef Pepper Jack, his best ten customers.
Eye Scream is a teacher at a Mabu school. Her students dare not chew gum in class.
Eye Five and Dreamcatcher, inspired by the former's experience with chongo, tried to bring the sport to reality, but failed spectacularly. Luckily, after Vince McMage was forced to sell his spring boomball (a football-esque Skylandic sport derived from the ancient Troll sport of boom) league, the VBL (Vernal Boomball League) to Auric, he let the two ex-villains on as co-owners.
Shield Shredder, Krankenstein, Fisticuffs, and Scrap Shooter formed a comedy troupe called the Sillykins. They actually got a show on NuTV.
Rage Mage opened an ice cream shop. He has often said that he hopes it'll last 10,000 years.
Cross Crow became a A/C repairman. His fan repairing skills are second to none.
Grinnade joined a Molekin mining company as a miner.
Threatpack is currently teaching physics at the prestigious Hartford College.
Bone Chompy now works as a medic for the Mabu Defense Force.
Smoke Scream now does search and rescue as a rubble-clearing flamethrower guy.
Trolling Thunder has taken up land racing for Pandergast.
Lob Goblin became a locksmith. In his spare time, he teaches other trolls to count past 7.
Chompy retired to his home in the Mirror of Mystery to bite things.
Mab Lobs went back to the Mirror of Mystery and became one of Master Ordar's first Skylanders.
Luminous took up stage acting, starring in a Skylandic production of Les Misérables, and is currently writing a play of his own about every single monarch the Earth nation of England has had since the Earth year of 1066.

2023.05.29 03:44 Downtown-Chest3461 [WTS] Hinderer Halftrack Harpoon Spanto in S45VN Tri-Way

SV: $450 This knife has been sharpened and lightly carried. There are some love marks on the titanium backside near the body screws, which I tried to point out in the video. The sharpening job doesn’t look the best (please see video), but the blade is still very sharp. Other than that, there are no scratches or dings on the blade/handles. The knife will come with three extra clips, in addition to the stock one. One is an MXG Gear clip and filler tab in bronze, and the others are from Pop’s Custom Clips…a longer one and a shorter one. Combined, the clips were around $130. No trades, please. Prices are shipped CONUS. PayPal G&S only, please. YOLO on this post takes first priority. Please don’t hesitate to chat me with questions. Thanks!

The new 'Super Mario Bros. Movies' streaming on digital platforms starting Tuesday, May 16.. Fans of the video game are wondering how they can stream the new video game franchise animated film The Super Mario Bros Movies streaming online reddit for free at home.

Mushroom Kingdom, here we come! Players of the popular video game will get a chance to relive Mario’s adventure in Mushroom Kingdom. But before viewers imagine collecting coins, the movie will reveal Mario (Chris Pratt) and Luigi (Charlie Day)’s backstory as Brooklyn-based plumbers. The duo head out to a job but are sucked into a different world and separated. This kicks off Mario's journey to find Luigi. Princess Peach (Anya Taylor-Joy), Bowser (Jack Black), Toad (Keegan-Michael Key), Donkey Kong (Seth Rogen), and others also make appearances.

To many, The Super Mario Bros. Movie is the biggest entertainment release of 2023. The film brings together the world's most prolific video game franchise with one of its most prolific animation studios in Illumination. Factor in the involvement of Mario creator Shigeru Miyamoto as a producer and an all-star cast of A-list voice talent, and this movie has all the makings of Hollywood's next animated blockbuster. Read our review of The Super Mario Bros. Movie for more.

It's almost baffling how it's taken this long to get a proper animated film adaptation of The Super Mario Bros. series, which is easily one of the most, if not the most, well-known and beloved video game franchises of all time. For over four decades, Nintendo's titular Italian plumber and face of the company has been entertaining gamers, appearing in over two-hundred different games since Mario's debut in 1981. Mario and his brother Luigi also have a history in the world of filmmaking, though not precisely for the same prestigious reasons. One of the most bizarre adaptations in motion picture history, Super Mario Bros. (1993), starring Bob Hoskins and John Leguizamo as Mario and Luigi (neither of which are Italian), didn't come even close to delivering the iconic style and tone of the original games, instead opting for a flashy dinosaur-themed sci-fi box office bomb.

Despite a strange first attempt, the Super Mario Bros. IP is still ripe for a cinematic adaptation. Thankfully, we’re finally getting that with the aptly named The Super Mario Bros. Movie. Coming from Illumination Animation, otherwise known as the studio behind The Secret Life of Pets, Despicable Me, and Sing franchises, early looks at the film already tease a visually faithful adaptation that will thrust fans and audiences into the Mushroom Kingdom like never before. Given the huge intergenerational popularity of the series, the film is practically guaranteed to be a massive win for Universal Pictures and Illumination. Those chances are even further improved with Universal Studios' long-awaited Super Nintendo World set to open mere months before the film's release.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie is now playing in theatres, but if you don’t want to go out of your way to watch it, you’re probably searching for the movie online. Is The Super Mario Bros. Movie streaming on Amazon Prime Video or has it found a home on another service? Here’s what we know so you don’t miss out.

How to Watch Super Mario Bros movie At Home

Universal Pictures and Illumination have announced that the film will be available to rent and/or purchase on digital platforms starting Tuesday, May 16. It’s also likely the hit animated title will stream first on NBCUniversal’s Peacock streaming service, which has been home to all of Universal’s recent releases like NOPE, Knock at the Cabin, Cocaine Bear, The Bad Guys and more.

The Super Mario Bros. Movie comes out on digital starting at midnight ET on May 16, 2023. For all you west coast watchers, that’s 9 p.m. PT tonight, May 15. Right now, you can preorder the Super Mario movie on Amazon for $30.

When Will The Super Mario Bros. Movie Streaming Online?
After a successful theatrical run, The Super Mario Bros. Movie is headed to video-on-demand streaming in the coming weeks.

Thanks to a social media post from the cable brand Optium, the digital release date of The Super Mario Bros. Movie was revealed to be Tuesday, May 16. That marks 41 days after the animated hit first landed in theaters on April 5, which is a short theater premiere-to-streaming gap for a 2023 blockbuster.

However, this gap isn't necessarily surprising when considering that Universal, the distribution company of The Super Mario Bros. Movie, has had a similar progressive release strategy for recent animated movies. Puss in Boots: The Last Wish was released digitally a mere 16 days after its December 2022 theatrical premiere, while Minions: The Rise of Gru hit video-on-demand 32 days after its Summer 2022 debut.

As for when the film could be streaming on a service (in this case, it would most likely be NBC's Peacock), that remains unknown. Given how much money the movie raked in, it's hard to imagine that Universal is in any rush to get it there anytime soon.

The Super Marios Bros. Movie will be available for digital purchase on Tuesday, May 16.

Is The Super Mario Bros. Movie Streaming On Prime Video?
The Super Mario Bros. Movie may be streaming on Prime Video soon thanks to a placeholder release date for May 16 on Amazon's video streaming service.
The Super Mario Bros. Movie comes out on digital starting at midnight ET on May 16, 2023. For all you west coast watchers, that’s 9 p.m. PT tonight, May 15. Right now, you can preorder the Super Mario movie on Amazon for $30.

The movie's PVOD page was spotted by Resetear user ContractHolder, noting that it's been marked as "Early Access," which means it may start streaming on Prime Video one month after the start of its theatrical run. When you preorder The Super Mario Bros. Movie on the service, you may see May 16, 2023 as the placeholder date. It's expected to come out on PVOD on that date, but that may be subject to change.

"Usually Universal only rushes their films to PVOD if it has under a $50 million opening weekend," ContractHolder explained in the post. "That's probably not going to happen for the Mario movie, but the marker has specifically been used for movies going to PVOD early in their theatre run. So keep in mind that there's a chance home viewings for the Mario movie could happen quickly."

Is The Super Mario Bros. Movie Streaming On Peacock?
As a Universal flim, The Super Mario Bros. Movie will eventually be available to stream on Peacock, but there’s currently no official streaming release date.
Some fans may believe either Disney+ or HBO Max will host The Super Mario Bros., but that will not be the case. Instead, you’ll find the movie on Peacock. Not right away, though. The animated feature will be in theatres for a number of weeks before landing on the streaming service. How long, exactly? We’re not sure, but we’ll be updating you as soon as we do.

Do you have a Peacock subscription? This is a great time to join! Peacock has recently made some sweet upgrades and content additions, you don’t want to miss out.

Will The Super Mario Bros. Movie Be On Netflix?
No, The Super Mario Bros Movies streaming online reddit will likely not be on Netflix any time soon, seeing as it will go directly to Amazon Prime Video after its theatrical run.

A similar timeline would put the rental release date for The Super Mario Bros Movies streaming online reddit in the UK in early May, but it'll then be another month or two until you can buy and own a copy of the movie.

Will The Super Mario Bros. Movie Be On HBO Max?
No, The Super Mario Bros. Movie is not on HBO Max since it’s not a Warner Bros. movie. Last year, the company released its films in theatres and on the streamer on the same day. However, they now allow a 45-day window between the theatrical release and the streaming release.

While we don't yet have a confirmed streaming release date for The Super Mario Bros Movies streaming online reddit, we can look at other Universal releases in 2023 to get a sense of when it might be available to watch at home.

When Will Super Mario Bros Movies Be On Disney?
While a streaming release date for The Super Mario Bros has not yet been announced, Disney typically sends their movies to Disney+ around 45 days after the theatrical release — and more specifically, on the Friday after that mark. With this strategy, we could be watching Avatar: The Way of Water from the comfort of our homes by early April 2023.

Is The Super Mario Bros. Movie Available On Hulu?
Viewers are saying that they want to view the new animation movie The Super Mario Bros. Movie on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. It will be exclusive to the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.

2023.05.29 03:43 sweet-and-savory-ofc And another one

Yea, one of these. Rambles for your Sunday read.
It's almost been one month since the man who claimed to "love love me" ghosted me out of nowhere.
A man who I've been involved with for 2 years (almost 4 years since I've known him and our long break due to my Dday). We reconnected after his divorce.
I had high hopes when we reconnected. My love for him had remained and if anything the pedestal I had him on was even higher now somehow.
Our time a part let me romanticize him more and built him into something he wasn't.
So this time around, when he seemed bitter possibly from his divorce (they divorced when we were NC and not because of our affair) and he was getting shorter and more impatient than ever with me, I was left confused at his seemingly misdirected anger and bitterness.
The man who could tell me I was "his perfect woman" was now inconsistent and flakey. The man who claimed he wanted a future with me and to build a family together, now couldn't return texts or calls in a timely manner.
I wondered where my once stable, best friend was? The man who knew me inside and out and was there for me during the worst, the man who claimed he never connected with anyone like me-- and the man who made me feel beautiful and sexy for the first time in 10+ years. The man who gave me constant affirmation and all the right words. The man who I could talk to for hours and knew exactly what I needed to turn me on. He said he was putty in my hands, but I felt the same about him. I was grateful for him and he would proclaim how lucky he was to have love from a woman like me.
Sometimes the man described above showed himself, but more often than not he was MIA.
Literally missing.
I should of walked away then...but I held on, hoping my best friend would one day resurface.
But instead, after nearly 10 months working through things and being there for him as he rebuildt his life after divorce, he poofed....he vanished.
And before anyone says anything-- I told him I thought he needed to date, be single, spread his wings, and if we were meant to be-- we would see once he got some rebounds out of his system. I didn't want to be a placeholder.
He claimed he would tell me when that day came. And while there were no signs he was seeing anyone, I know him-- and I'm sure he was talking to many women.
I also think he was scared of the potential future we could of had.
Either way, he never communicated to me-- never allowed me to know. Never cared enough to share the hard truths.
He was the loving man I knew, planning to see me and arrange plans for the following week, confessing his love for me....and then he was gone.
Now, one month later-- as I rebuild myself and try to love myself, I wonder if I'll ever go down this road again, and by that I mean-- trust a man's words of love. Allow myself to love another man like I thought I loved him.
Idk, it's still so early.
But I do know I will keep working on the goals and aspirations I lost sight of while he pushed and pulled me away this past year.
I'm proud to say, I've got exciting things in the works-- lifetime bucket goals of overseas trips on the horizon, new job opportunities ahead, more courses I'm taking to further my career, and pAps that are eager to be with me and spend time with me.
I'm cautiously optimistic, but also I'll admit-- very much broken and hurt, too.
No real reason in posting but feels good to write it out, too.
Sending light & love to all those confused tonight as well. ✌

2023.05.29 03:36 EnchantedSquiggleDic AITA for wanting my friend to hang out earlier?

My best friend (24M) and I (22M) had a fight and I don’t know if I should just cut him off or not. He’s been my friend since 2014 and I feel like we are drifting apart. since he got new friends who do much more than I can do for him, he wants to hang out with them more and not me. The convo was like this copied and pasted from Facebook because I don’t have a phone:
Me: hey wanna hang out
Him: sure
Me: ok when?
Him: I’m free anytime after 2 because I have an important drs appointment at 1.
Me: why so late? Come earlier like at 11
Him: I have stuff to do before my drs appointment so I’m free only after 2 today.
Me: OMG what’s your deal with only coming after 2 lately? Start coming over earlier
Him: If you don’t want to hang out after that time then I won’t come over.
Me: If you don't really want to hang just say so. You don't have to say yes just for me. So let me know
Him: I do but if u aren’t free after 2 cause u don’t want to wait then we don’t have to hang out.
Me: whatever
Him: so do u still want to hang out today?
Me: No. Cuz either you have weed but not enough to share or you don't have any at all and I need weed to calm down. So yea. That's my answer.
Him: You can’t just expect me to come hang out whenever you want. That’s all I’m saying. And I always put time for you in my day for years now, and you started acting like this since u started weed. and you’re in Denial or have memory loss if you don’t think it’s because of the weed because I’ve sacrificed my time for you for nearly a decade and I still do, and I’ve always been free in the evenings because of work or school or other stuff going on in my life. But since you expect weed when we hang out, you always rush me and get upset if I don’t come at a time u want. You may not notice your behaviour but others do. Then he won’t answer my call
Me: Just own up to your actions. It's not because of weed. It's because anytime I ask to hang you always make me wait. Even if your not busy. Your actions tell me your only hanging out with me now cuz I cause don't drama for no reason. I think you don't want to be my friend. I think it's only because without me all your other friends would be drama starters.
Him: Own up to what actions? Im literally doing nothing wrong but telling u when I’m available. Im not making u wait, im telling u a time that im legit available. Wtf. If I didn’t want to be your friend, I wouldn’t hang out with u nearly every day just to spend time with u. I spend time with you more than the drama starters. I literally cancel my plans with them 80% of the time just to hang out with u because hanging out with them is stressful. But now you’re stressing me out because you’re upset that I have a life outside of our friendship.
And then he blocks me on FB messenger. If he was truly my friend, he would be responsible and fix his schedule so that we could hang out more.

2023.05.29 03:35 Shellbelleeee Was it me? Was His Actions ok, and I was just overreacting? Sorry for long post.. I Feel Conflicted..

I just want to add trigger warnings: abuse, sleeping pill use, possible reactive abuse?, self harm/suicide ideation
Hello everyone! I am just really struggling with determining if I was the narcissist in a previous relationship that’s weighing heavy on me. I would like to state that before this relationship, I was in an all over abusive relationship (That was actually my 1st serious relationship, happened in high school) that was very traumatic. Within and after that relationship, that ex was telling me that no one would love me or love me like he does, would physically hurt me as he would tell me that ‘he is not hurting me, I am hurting myself’, blame me for everything in the relationship, his mom would make excuses for him even as she heard him hurting me.. It was a LOT. And I guess that was also why I was so susceptible to my next relationship which is the one I am inquiring about.
So, that relationship lasted 3 years.. I went to therapy.. A year and maybe a half later, I met another guy (which is the one I am more confused on and questioning myself the most..) My 1st bf was known as not a good guy so it was easier for me to come to terms with that it was not me? But this one… Everyone LOVES him… We met through a friend of mine at a theme park.. I guess for a good month he was trying to get my number from her (she was a good friend of mine at the time, she was dating one of his good friends, they knew each other. She took us to where he was). I got a text from him saying “Hey beautiful, can you guess who this is?” and it all started from there..
He had previously gotten out of a 4 year relationship, 2 months before we met (Stupid me; HOWEVER, i did not know how short of a time span it truly was until I went through his phone and laptop), but he made it seem like she was just cheating on him and not doing right by him majorly, he was over it, and it was done. I didn’t know his part until the 4th year when I went through his laptop and saw that he would call her names, he would be trying to be sexual with her friend which is the same girl who told him that he couldn’t cheat on me with anyone besides her and he agreed (Same girl that would be mentioned in a bit), and so on.
We ended up going to the same college, and hanging out a lot; However, even from month one he was trying to get with me and saying that he “had” to be with me because I was sweet, beautiful, xyz but he didn’t have time for that at the moment due to him just getting out of the relationship (which I was ok with tbh. But when mentioning that I don’t think I wanted to date he would be like why?… (As well as I think this is what got me too because he was not prioritizing a relationship so it did not seem like he would be using me). He would call me while he was at work a lot, and he even showed up to my house once randomly because I was trying to avoid hanging out with him and me and my friend had to lie and say I wasn’t there. He would explain a lot of how we would make sense together in a sense and why I should not be opposed to dating him..
Within the 4th month, he confessed that he loved me and hoped that I felt the same… In my gut I felt that it did not feel right… But everyone was saying that he liked me, everyone loved him, and he seemed like a good guy and totally opposite of my 1st ex… So I thought, maybe this is love and maybe I do love him… One night I stupidly explained what I been through before meeting him (my previous relationship and friendships) and how I just did not want to go through that again… He said he would never put me through anything like that, will treat me how I deserve like the princess I am, and how laid back he was (but I did not think laid back would mean flirting with other women in front of me or in general, etc which he would mention at a later time when bringing things up to him “Well I told you I was laid back”).. By this time I was lowkey babe, his princess, etc… His friends telling me that he really liked me, and I made him happy… That he talked about me a lot.. I thought maybe this was it…
Around month 8, he asked me out… Immediately a shift began… Right after he asked me out he stated “You’re lucky because there was someone else I was supposed to date”… I instantly knew that something was wrong… But at the same time… A thought that ran through my head was my 1st ex telling me how no one would ever love me like him and other things… and tbh I think I just went with it and accepted fate Ig. I got in his car and we drove off… But now that I even look back, he would question me sexually compared to other women.. call himself the “booty king”.. and talk about how he was sad that he lost his old phone containing photos of all the girls’ pics he had while we were talking… so.. Yeah… Ig that wasn’t even the 1st shift.. I guess I was just used to that type of treatment now that I think about it..
To add more information before getting to the main portion, before so much occurred, I did not mind him hanging out even alone with girls.. He made me feel safe and I trusted him and even told him that. To the point where he told me that he was going to Disney with the girl mentioned above and that she liked him, but I need to not worry because he wasn’t going to do anything and liked me and other stuff. This was after he told me he thinks we shouldn’t be talking to other people (so this occurred a little before he asked me out). However, during this time, if he saw me with a guy he seemed to get jealous. For example, I was saving the table, and the janitor who looked like a guy my age came over, we nodded, and he just kept working. He came back as the janitor moved and asked me if he was flirting with me and thought that I was lying about him not flirting with me. Another time, I went to the movie theatre with my friend and he brought it up a few times and was asking about it and claiming it was a date. However, he would keep stating that he was not the jealous type and his friends would too..
But anyways after we started dating, he immediately started ignoring me as I was talking and would always be on his phone. One such event was when we were headed somewhere with his friends… Once they got out of the car, and I began talking to him, he immediately got on his phone and was kind of ignoring me but giving ‘mhms’, ‘ohs’, and other sounds like that.. Eventually I went quiet.. When his girl friend 1st got back into the car, he immediately put his phone down and started conversating with her… I was hurt.. which led to him doing some actions and admitting that he did them because I was sad and wouldn’t tell him why and shrugged. He would be on his phone looking at girls.. Even when my parents were going through a divorce, and I was venting to him over skype.. He was just ignoring me.. and I could see through his glasses that he was just browsing on tumblr which already made me more sad and alone, then I saw him staring at and sharing a picture of a girl showing her butt, and I got upset and he got upset with me for being upset.. On our one year anniversary even, I was talking to him, and he was ignoring me.. But I caught him looking at a picture with girls showing their butts and just became quiet and upset.. He’d already called me insecure and such by that point..
Another incident which I’m sure sounds stupid and may just be really stupid.. Was 2 months after we dated.. I told him all that I wanted for my birthday was to take him to HHN for his first time.. He said he didn’t have any plans to go with anyone else and pinky promised me.. I would say maybe a couple of weeks later he told me he was going with one of his girl friends that worked there on that night, and I immediately called him.. He invited me to go, but I couldn’t because I was busy, and I asked if he could wait, and he brought up that he couldn’t just say no because he already told her yes. I brought up the pinky promises, and stupidly begged him if he could just wait.. He said he couldn’t and he had to go.. Later he posted on snapchat about how much fun he was having and how cool and crazy it was.. Later told me he just went with her because she could get him in for free.. which I would have paid if needed, but I didn’t know.. He would manipulate me into letting him do whatever because his ex did (For example, going to stay on the beach with his girl best friend, her mom, and her sister, but by this point he already kind of made it clear that he did not care about me, so I was uncomfortable with it, but he kept pushing until I said yes and would guilt trip me for being unsure).
During this 1st year, he already called me a whore for having guy friends, crazy, insecure because of above things etc. One incident we went to the club with one of his guy friends, I didn’t know the plan was to find girls for him (his guy friend) to get.. So while I was trying to dance and interact with them, I noticed he was just looking around and pointing out girls and kind of didn’t acknowledge me a lot of the night.. Which did make me sad.. I became standoffish, and that led to an argument and him hitting the steering wheel yelling at me and asking what the fuck is my problem with girls.. Which I remained silent after trying to explain.. Another incident is when at some point in the first couple of months I told him I would have sex with him.. We ended up at a resort because I have timeshares.. However, I got extremely sick to the point I couldn’t breathe and was worried. I did say I would have to pass on sex at the moment because I really could not breathe and didn’t feel well. He was more upset that I didn’t give him sex and said how I lied.. Which I really didn’t mean to.. and I did feel really bad about.
He would say how he didn’t care about how I felt about something, would go do that said thing, and then would come back and apologize after talking to one of his girl friends about it, and how she made him realize it wasn’t cool. He would be really mean and say mean things.. he would start denying his actions and words so I started keeping screenshots to make sure that what I had remembered was accurate.. Adults would tell me that I better take good care of him while this was happening and he would look at me and smile and do like a jerking movement with his head like "yeah you better" if that makes sense..
I noticed after a while, I couldn’t control my emotions… I started becoming more and more emotionally reactive. I became increasingly jealous and trying everything to get him to care.. I also begin to try to find ways to get him to understand how he was hurting me and kept thinking of ways to get him to stop.. When I would react he told me that he showed his friends or told them what I did and their reactions and comments.. He told them I was crazy.. After a while I asked him to stop talking about our relationship to his friends because I noticed he wouldn’t tell them why I was reacting the way I was which also leads me to question if it was me.. I began trying to try to control situations so I wouldn’t get any more hurt. I started becoming passive aggressive and started saying mean things.. I threw my toothbrush at the bathroom door once.. I started taking sleeping pills because I got anxiety when he would text me that he was going out. I started taking the pills as well because I couldn’t heal and move on from the things that had happened as fast as he would’ve liked.. I would try to leave but he would say what I wanted to hear of course.. But if I tried to talk to him about the things, he would hardly say anything or just be like “you’re right, I’m trash”, change the subject, or tell me he would break up with me if I brought it up again.. Eventually he would tell me how I needed help and kiss me on the forehead.. At one point, I asked him if we break up, would he consider trying to work on things in the future after we both do growing, and he responded by shaking his head and telling me only if I had changed… I always made him not want to do things or not want to go to things.. He was more cool than me and had more friends than me he would say or imply at times and even brought it up because I got more likes on my insta posts.. One day I would be wifey and he would be so in love with me and not want any other girls.. and the next day I should understand if he wanted to breakup so he can go be with other girls.. His family said in front of me that he could just go get another girlfriend.. and he would shrug his shoulders and repeat that to me..
Major heartbreak events would happen after I helped him in someway, and he would feel a type of way that I wouldn’t want to help him or do things.. Like I helped get him jobs, get back in school, be on time for work, took care of him when he almost died (which led to a major event I will talk about in a few) he would tell me or show me that he didn’t care about me and I couldn’t count on him to be there for me either.. Like when I tried to tell him that I am becoming more severely depressed due to stuff, he was just like “I care less and less” because I brought up depression due to different things.. Which I know.. Stupid for staying.. However.. He would be “hurt” that I didn’t believe that he loved and cared for me.. That the trust I had was diminishing.. He would ask me why I thought he was lying to me and tell me that there were and are no other girls.. Everything led up to the 4th year..
After being with him in the hospital after he could’ve died.. I was with him and making sure he was ok afterwards.. Something was going to happen with a girl I didn’t feel comfortable with him being alone with and he told me.. surprise.. that he didn’t care and had to go.. Told me she said I was pretty.. I asked him if I could go through his phone a couple of days later, I guess I just needed that final push.. I found so much, from him talking to other women about our relationship but being more concerned about how we were having less and less sex, him cheating and flirting, him texting his friend about how he thought him and his ex were getting back together, etc. And I just lost it.. I woke him up shaking him asking why me.. just why… and before I knew it I slapped him.. It was like slow motion, I tried to stop myself but I couldn’t.. I immediately felt guilt.. and that was the first time I ever hit someone.. I know it’s not ok.. but that started an altercation and he dug his nails into me and so on.. I went to the bathroom bleeding.. and the next day.. He asked what happened to me and the marks.. I told him I just had a depressive episode.. and he told me that I shouldn’t hurt myself like that.. Like he didn’t remember anything.. It was like me and him switched places.. He began being afraid to communicate with me.. and to this day.. It’s been almost 3 years.. I feel extremely guilty and re-enact that night but begging myself to stop.. to just leave.. I still feel angry at myself.. His close friends were like “he really tried.. he really loved you.. ah I don’t think he’s like that”.. and sometimes it makes me doubt my experience..
At the end of the relationship is something I can’t forget.. He smirked and told me that he knew he’d be ok.. and that he already moved on and accepted everything.. and that has been something hard on me too.. I removed him from a lot but stupidly texted him a month or so later apologizing..
After the relationship when I would hear or see him or his name, I would have little panic attacks.. everything would go blurry and it felt like I couldn’t breathe.. Therapy isn’t helping.. I feel like I can’t move on and sometimes I idealize or day dream about suicide heavily..
I keep trying to stop myself from looking at his postings about loyalty.. being faithful.. giving everything to the girl who is always down for him.. not lying.. how his friends post how amazing he is and his quotes about cheating and such.. but it’s like a bad addiction I just can’t seem to break.. I keep asking myself was it me.. and if I’m just the narcissist.. He did take the blame and apologize near the end of the relationship and then once I reached out and apologized for my actions after the relationship.. But I still am so confused..
I feel consumed by rage.. envy.. Jealousy.. I see him being blessed with everything and thanking God and Jesus which diminished my faith.. If it wasn’t me, then how come he is getting so many blessings and get to be so happy.. I keep saying how it’s not fair.. I feel guilt.. I feel shame.. I don’t trust myself.. I can’t tell who I truly am after lashing out.. I feel like I want to give up.. Like it’s never going to end.. I keep seeing things about narcissistic abuse, and then I get scared because what if it was me….. Then I feel guilty for not wanting to watch any more things on narcissism or abuse for a while.. I keep praying, begging for it all to go away.. I have resorted to tarot and spells.. Faking it til I make it.. Nothing.. and then I get frustrated.. I keep reliving and trying to play things out differently if that makes sense.. I feel so alone, and I self-isolate so much.. It’s almost 3 years.. I am just confused.. and I am sorry for this being so long and possibly confusing and all over the place..
