2023.06.05 07:44 throwawayopinion238 need to help a friend
Hi all. I don't know where else to post so I am posting here. I have a now long distance friend I have known for a while now (some 4yrs, know full name, face, address) and her family is very abusive. I don't want to go into detail for the sake of privacy but they never leave any marks so there isn't any physical proof. CPS has been called before, they have not done anything because there was nothing that came up in the check and her parents are excellent liars, they have pinned the blame on her for multiple things before like shoplifting etc.
She has a baby sister and a teen brother. She herself is one year from turning of age. Recently her father has started abusing her in a really fucked up way. She's considering running away but she doesn't have any friends or adults she can trust. I really, really want to help her but I don't know how. Her father can also find her as he has put a family link app on her phone.
Does anyone have any advice? It would be heavily appreciated.

2023.06.05 07:43 Polaris328 Queen and Prince All Your Heart
The Northstar, Titan's Orbit
Polaris, in the middle of a much-needed nap at his desk, looked up in a daze as his computer beeped, alerting him of an incoming call. He shook himself awake before answering. "Hello?" he said groggily.
"Hey, Old Light. Sounds like I woke you up," Crow's voice replied Polaris could practically hear his protege's smirk. "Everything alright?"
"Just peachy." Polaris rubbed his eyes. "What's up, Crow?"
"Not much. I was at the Farm this morning and Queen Mara asked for you. I've been trying to reach you all day."
"Yeah, I've been, uh..." Polaris recalled everything he'd done in the past twelve hours: sleeping, eating ice cream, crying, trying to get some overdue mission reports done, then getting bored and sleeping again. "Very busy."
Crow chuckled. "I'm sure. Well, whenever you're free, drop by the Farm. Mara's waiting."
"I'll be right there. Seeya around, kiddo." Polaris ended the call and yawned loudly before getting up and changing into his typically pristine armor, though it found itself in a sorry state tonight. He pushed the button on his intercom and relayed his instructions to the vessel's pilot: "Set a course for the EDZ on Earth. Got business at the Farm."
"Expecting a fight?" Daedalus asked, orbiting his Guardian curiously. "Farm's pretty safe."
"No, but can't be too careful with Mara. She might have some kind of special assignment for me or something. There's always another one, no matter how many I have stacked up," Polaris grumbled, adjusting his cloak as the Northstar descended toward the Farm. It was as quiet as it had been ever since the team's mission of retribution against the Shadow Legion following Amanda Holliday's death. Some civilians of various species going about their business here and there, but no notable operations anymore.
Queen Mara Sov, sitting alone aside from one horse in the Farm's stables, glanced skyward as she heard the approaching roar of the Northstar's engines. Before long, Polaris made his way to her location. "It's been some time, Young Wolf," she said, stroking the horse's mane.
Polaris's face immediately scrunched up. "Still hate that name. I see you've met Gorilla."
Mara frowned. "...Gorilla?"
"The horse. His name's Gorilla. He's a hero, y'know."
"What exactly did... Gorilla do that was so heroic?"
Polaris chuckled. "Back in the Red War, during the mission to retake the Last City, the assault teams had to approach the City in a way that the Cabal wouldn't notice. So their ships dropped them out near Twilight Gap, and they made the rest of the journey on foot. But to make sure everything was clear along the way, they had a trio of scouts go ahead on horseback. Gorilla was one of those horses- along with his brothers, Elmer and Krazy, may they rest in peace. Without him, the assault team may have been ambushed along the walk to the City by Cabal forces. But thankfully Gorilla and his brothers were there to help." He walked over to Gorilla and scratched behind his ear. "He's been living here ever since."
"And what of his brothers? Elmer and Crazy?" Mara asked. "From what you've said, I assume they are dead."
"Krazy. With a K. But yeah. Krazy was killed by a Cabal sniper near the City's outer walls. He and his rider happened to be spotted while they were scouting ahead, and, well... a horse is a bigger target than a Guardian. As for Elmer, he was caught in an explosion during the battle. He survived it, but his injuries were severe enough that he had to be put to sleep, rather than letting him suffer for his natural lifespan. So Gorilla's the only one left. But he's been handling it well. Haven't you, boy?" Polaris smiled up at the horse, who gave a happy neigh in response. "So. What did you need? Crow said you wanted to talk to me."
Mara nodded, sitting down on a wooden bench. "I did. But I do not have a mission for you if that is what you expected."
Polaris took a seat next to the Queen. "Then what's up?"
"I simply wished to speak with you."
Polaris narrowed his eyes. "To what end? You don't do anything without a purpose."
Mara looked away from the Guardian. "Amanda Holliday's death has weighed heavy on all who knew her. As I said then, I have lived for eons. I have seen countless deaths. They still hurt, but it has become... easier for me, than for most. But it will never be easier to stomach how it affects those I care for."
Polaris swallowed a retort that probably wouldn't have gone over well, instead choosing to stare at the stable floor.
"That includes you, Polaris." Mara looked back at him. "So, if you insist that I must have a purpose, then my only purpose is this: I am concerned for you. Your shoulders have borne more weight than any of your peers in much less time than most. I can see it in your face- you are beyond exhausted. I know you do not see me as a friend, but if you have anything you wish to speak of, I will be here to listen."
Polaris covered his face with his hands for a brief moment. "Where do I even start?" He met Mara's eyes.
"Wherever you wish." Mara reached over and took hold of Polaris's hand. "I was speaking with Elisabeth Bray once when she said something similar to me. Then she remembered something. A wise Hunter once told her, 'The beginning is usually a pretty good place.'"
Polaris's slack fingers closed around Mara's hand as a hint of a smile crept onto his lips. He shifted to be a little closer to her. "Using my own words against me. Devious, Your Grace. Very devious. Well. As you might remember, my friend Hecate went Dark a while back. She was a fugitive for a long time. Then, right after the Traveler ascended, she came to find me. She told me she wanted to come back to the City. Rejoin the Vanguard. I was all for it. She's doing great, but I can see the pain in her eyes whenever I see her. And I just don't know how to help. On top of that, Aunor and I... we're done. Again. For good this time."
"How did it happen?" Mara asked. "Another fight?"
"No. It was much more peaceful. We've barely seen each other recently. Been so busy with our own work that we... don't have time for each other anymore. But right before Titan reappeared, she and I finally got to be with each other again. First time we've been face to face in months. In the morning, she said we needed to talk. She basically told me we were too big of a distraction for each other. Even when we're apart, if we're involved with each other, we'd only be dividing our focus away from... 'what really matters,' in her words. Can't say I'm surprised- she's always put duty first- but to hear it spelled out like that didn't feel amazing. But I gotta admit... she's got a point."
Mara nodded slowly. "People like ourselves... we must always put the mission before our personal desires." She watched as Polaris's already somber expression saddened. "But that does not mean we must stifle our love for those around us. Amanda knew this, and she loved with all her heart."
"Cayde knew it too. But I guess it's a lesson some of us still have to learn, huh?" Polaris looked back at the Queen with a small smirk. "Not naming names, though."
A brief chuckle escaped from Mara before she caught herself. "Yes. I suppose we do. Although before we can express our love to those around us, perhaps we must first embrace and express our love for ourselves."
"It's always funny hearing you talk like that."
"What do you mean?"
"Like you don't want to be understood. And you want whoever you're talking with to understand that they don't understand." Polaris froze, panic setting in as he saw something change in Mara's expression. "Shit. I'm sorry, I didn't mean-"
"No. It's fine, Polaris." Mara chuckled again, more openly this time. "The first Queen's Wrath, Sjur Eido, once said nearly the exact same thing to me. You do remind me of her sometimes, though she was perhaps more... straightforward. There were fewer dimensions to her than yourself, though at your core, you're similar to her." She stared into Polaris's eyes. Today, they were electric blue, as bright and as powerful as a bolt of Arc lightning.
"How so?" the Hunter asked.
"You and Sjur are endlessly passionate. Powerful. Charming. Problem solvers, though in different ways. Always determined to follow your chosen path, no matter what might draw you away from it. In a sea of the exceptional, you both stand above your peers."
Polaris was suddenly very aware of the fact that Mara still hadn't let go of his hand, even though his own had gone lax a few moments ago- and that her tone had changed a little. And had she gotten closer? Or had he shifted closer to her? He couldn't be quite sure. "High, uh... high praise from you, Your Grace."
Mara paused before letting go of Polaris's hand and standing up. "And I mean every word. But... I suppose that is all I wished to say to you. You are free to go."
Polaris also stood. "Yeah. I'll do that. Got some things to do. But... thanks, Mara. And the same offer you extended to me goes back to you. Anything you need to talk about, I'll be here." He could practically feel that Mara wanted to say more, and so did he, but now was not the time. And this was certainly not the place. "Well. Uh. Oh, screw it." He pulled Mara into a tight hug.
Mara's eyes widened for a moment as she was taken aback by the gesture, but she instinctively returned it, closing her eyes.
"You said earlier that you didn't think I saw you as a friend. You were wrong. You are my friend, Mara. One of my best."
Mara felt Polaris's breathing synchronize with her own. The Prince of the Sky and the Queen of the Awoken silently stood in each other's embrace for a moment before she spoke again. "You must never forget to love with all your heart, Polaris. As must I. We do not know who will walk away from this battle with us and who will be lost along the way."
"I promise." Polaris stepped away from Mara. "See you around, my lady." He bowed to the Queen, only partially in a joking manner, then transmatted back to his Ketch.
Mara took a deep breath before looking back at Gorilla, who was staring at her. "What?" she bluntly asked the horse. Then she noticed it seemed to be looking just over her shoulder instead of directly at her. She turned just in time to see Crow drop his invisibility.
The young Hunter had an amused smirk on his face. "Haven't seen you like that since... well, you know. Are you thinking of...?"
Mara put a hand on her hip. "It is as I said. The mission, the plan... ending the Witness comes first. Why were you spying on us?"
"Couldn't help myself." Crow shrugged. "Truth be told, I've been concerned about him too. I was worried that you'd say or do something, or send him on some exhausting mission that would push him past the breaking point... but I was pleasantly surprised. I think talking to you did him some good. He seemed a little... I don't know. Lighter, when he left."
"If I have been able to provide some relief to him, then I am satisfied. Even if it is only a little. Don't you have work to be doing?"
"Heh. Suppose I do. And so do you. Bye, Mara." Crow nodded to his sister as he transmatted away.
"Goodbye, Crow." Mara walked out of the stable, breathing in the cool midnight air. She felt a little lighter as well.
hi. sorry for disappearing (again). i, uh... i don't really know if i want to go anywhere with this particular relationship. i like the concept, but pursuing it actively would probably interfere with canon too much. we'll see, though. anyway. got a little bit depressing tonight, which might reflect my life in general (my stories often do). but there's a little glimmer of hope in there too. i'm not super proud of this particular entry, but it will have to do. hope you enjoyed

2023.06.05 07:42 enormityop Need some guidance.
Hello. I got 98.8 percentile in JEE Mains (140xx rank) and 274/390 in BITSAT. I'm a bit confused about which college to go after.
As a heads up, I'm only looking for IT Branches (most preferably CSE), as I have little or no interest in core branches. Also, I'm currently leaning towards doing an MS abroad, so I would prefer a college with research opportunities. Also, getting CSE in BITS isn't possible at these marks.
My first preference is DAIICT (ICT or MnC), but the chances are very slim. I'm also applying at LNMIIT (which I'll get for sure at this rank), which I heard has good research opportunities.
I can't get CSE in NITs, but I have newer IIITs (Vadodara, Pune, Guwahati) some of which don't even have a permanent campus which makes it really unattractive. Finally, there is also BIT Mesra which doesn't have a good research infrastructure.
What are your suggestions? Are there any colleges that I'm overlooking, also, should I change my preference?

"Fear the old blood; you've no idea the curse you have brought upon us," the old man said, his pale frame rested against the body of a large woman staring down at him. Her entire form was obfuscated by the thick, plated armor covering her body. The woman lets out a low growl as she plants a hand on his shoulder, and pushes him off of her blade. She stares down at the body, her expression behind her helmet remaining stern, unbroken, and unrelenting... "You must be unrelenting," One of her... Mentors, of sorts, had told her all those years ago. His large muscular frame was imposing against the smaller, pale girl beneath him. Her arms and legs had white scales along them, and she had a tail not unlike a dragon's. On her back were two wings of matching color. Her breathing was ragged and heavy, and in her arms was a battle axe she held limply. She had been much younger at the time, but was still quite large for her age. Still, her mentor had dwarfed her. "This isn't fair!" She groaned. The axe was easily two sizes too large for her, and the energy required to wield it was clearly starting to take its toll on her. "Life isn't fair, child. Do you think your enemy will give you a break if you get tired? Again," He responded, his voice as stern and uncaring as ever. In a gust of flame, her mentor was gone, and she alone once more. Arms sore and shaking, she stands tall but tired against the red sand beneath her. She can barely lift the axe, leaving the blade to rest on the ground, as a portcullis across from her slowly opens. Behind it, a chain devil stood. Its frame was lithe and strong despite the evidence of hunger being written across its body. It is quick to action upon the wall between them having been lifted, and begins to spin a hook at the end of one of its chains as it approaches. The woman shakily hefts her axe, resting it on her shoulder as she meets its gaze with one of her own-- one of equal parts determination and fear.
Hey all! I've been mulling over this prompt for months now, so I figured I should finally put it out there. This is my first time doing a post wherein I have a specific plot in mind, so I hope I can effectively communicate what I am looking for!
Above is an excerpt of a longer piece I am writing for a character I would be interested in doing a 1 on 1 with someone about! Generally, the vibes in that excerpt are the vibes I would be going for. What I'm looking to do is a sort of Bloodborne meets Doom demon hunting campaign that will involve staving off a demon and devil invasion, going to places like the Abyss and the Nine Hells, and making some fun and interesting lore together that would span across realms!
I would love to make a gritty game that is equal parts roleplay and combat, with a focus more on the story than making everything follow rules perfectly! In fact, in reference to rules, I would be okay with using really any system we may want if 5e doesn't work, or heavily homebrewing things!
Since this will likely be a situation where the character I play will be alone the entire time, I am somewhat interested in trying to do something with Gestalt, though I'm a bit new to it!
I would like to do this in Discord, just for the sake of organization. Makes my OCD happy.
Some things about me:
- I am 19! As such, I would like my partner to at least be 17+
- I am pansexual! As a member of the LGBTQ, I would like my partner to be comfortable and okay with my identity, sexuality, and so on!
- I use Any/All pronouns!
- I draw a lot! Like a lot a lot. If our story/writing gets us particularly invested, there's a likelihood I will draw our characters! I actually already have some art I am currently making for this character :)
- I tend to write a lot, as fortunate or unfortunate as that may be to hear. Especially whenever I have a lot of things to describe, or very high muse for a situation! As such, I can tend to write a fair bit most of the time! Now, keep in mind that that's not universal; when it comes to things like combat, dialogue, etc etc, that length is subject to change. There's no real quota for me to meet or anything, nor is there one for you! I don't expect you to match my post length, all I ask for is effort and a show of interest! If your post is well written and I can tell you're putting in the effort and genuinely like what we're writing, we're good!
- I've been roleplaying and playing TTRPGs regularly for about 6 years now, and dabbling with them for upwards of 9, though the exact amount is a bit fuzzy. I've also been very into writing for 8, but have always wanted to make stories even at a young age. I wouldn't say I'm the best writer ever, but I am relatively experienced, and hope that I can make something interesting, engaging, and worthwhile for the both of us!
- I like to discuss with my partner what we are and aren't comfortable with appearing in the roleplay before we begin, so expect me to ask!
- You can call me soft for this if you'd like, but I generally don't prefer to kill off player characters without permission! I like to let characters finish their stories instead of cutting them short. I'm here for a story, not a struggle for survival.
- If anything comes up that I am uncomfortable with, I will tell you! I hope you will do the same! This is intended to be fun, and I would like for it to stay that way :)
- I'm looking forward to making friends with you! I don't want to treat roleplay as some "professional" thing, and I'd like to use it to meet new and interesting people!
- I prefer to write third person past or present tense!
So, if you want to tell a story of demons, devils, and a woman's righteous, hate-fuelled war against them with me, feel free to hit me up! Just be sure to include your favorite joke in your message or, if you can't think of a joke, include the word "Detritus" in your message. That way I know you actually read the post (or at least skimmed it with some amount of effort)! If you don't do this, I may not respond, or give your message less priority than those that do!
Hope to see you soon~!

2023.06.05 07:40 Creative-Dot-7217 How should I (27F) deal with a possible narcissist(40sM) and friend/music group?
I am a 27 year old female who has recently started distancing myself from a man I was dating. We were dating and then decided to take a break but we never had a discussion of what our break would entail, how long our break should last, and during our break, we would still go on dates together.
I have come to realize though that he might be a narcissist. We were in the same friend/music group in our community for couple of years and would attend and perform at open mics. We naturally started dating. What’s hard is I think I am the only one who has found out that he is a narcissist. Everyone else, outsiders, and people in our friend group don’t know his true self as I have seen and had to deal with. They think he is really nice person. But I've always had bad feelings about him and he kept chasing me and everyone else kept saying he is a nice person so I gave it a chance. It was a very difficult relationship for me. It has gotten harder during our break because I can't read him and he is hot and cold and we don't communicate. I’ve been wanting to get back together with him but I feel used and that he never even liked me. It feels like a one sided relationship.
I enjoy music and art a lot. I’m not good at it but I love them. There are two guy friends in our music/ friend group who used to or still might have feelings for me. One though started dating recently. But they both stopped talking to me once they found out I was dating the guy / “ex” (there hasn’t been closure of our breakup but I’ve been slowly backing away and have stopped communicating with him). They would still keep in contact with the man I dated though.
I think the guy friends found out that I stopped seeing him so they recently contacted me again to invite me to a small open mic to perform. I was very happy because I felt like the man I was dating isolated me from my friends and I haven’t been able to pursue art and music while I was dating him and during our break. I lost myself in the relationship and have become very depressed. I used to be more confident and joyful. His criticisms and judgements really made me insecure of myself. I was always afraid to express how I feel and even until now, I haven’t been able to express my emotions to him.
But the man I dated has also been invited to this open mic. It’s going to be a smaller group event and then later this year there is going to be a bigger one held. He will also be attending and performing at that one too. Both events are being hosted by one of my guy friends. The man I dated is very talented, more so than me. He gets invited to almost every open mic in our community and is connected to many other music groups. I’m not as talented and I’m only associated with one music group. I’m not sure if I get invited to perform because the guy friends are the ones hosting and maybe they’re only inviting me to perform because they like me, not because I’m actually good at music. I have been told from others / audience though that they enjoy my performances and at each new open mic, I’m told that I have gotten better and my voice is good.
My question is should I go to this smaller open mic and perform? I love performing. I plan to attend the bigger one later this year because there will be a bigger crowd and I won’t have to feel or be close to the man I dated, his presence. But I miss doing music and showcasing my art. I'm also not good at doing things by myself. I crave social interaction and need to be around others. I feel down when I isolate myself too much. I also want to attend open mics so I can see other people perform and get a better idea on how I can improve my music and art. I’m just nervous because the man I dated will be there too, the group will be small, and I believe there are 2 other narcissists attending and performing at this event too. I get self conscious, insecure, and am scared of their judgments. I don’t know how to handle this situation and future situations. Do I avoid this open mic and other open mics I know that narcissists will attend? But they will be at most open mics because they’re very talented. There is one other one I know but it’s run by a female narcissist, there is a group of girls who are the core of that music group, and they are not nice to me nor do they ever invite me. But they are very well known in the community and they are very talented. It’s hard because I sometimes read online to avoid a narcissist. That’s the best way to handle it or to try to quit a job, look for a new one if you have a narcissistic coworker or boss. But I don’t know how to pursue my dreams and likes by always having to avoiding them? I feel like everywhere we go especially nowadays, there will always be one narcissist. I can’t just quit my job or stop attending open mics every time, do I? It’s exhausting to move around, trying to get away from narcissists and then having to start all over again. The next new town, friend group, or music group will also have their own narcissists too, won’t they? How do I get by, make connections, improve my talents without making myself sick and depressed over narcissistic people? I can be sensitive and sometimes if a narcissist bulldozes me or says a harsh word, it can send me to bed for days. I will cry a lot too and I’m just so tired of it. But I don’t want to become hopeless.
I also have a hard time making genuine female friends. There is a new female that joined our friend / music group about a year ago and we’ve become very close. She is also 27 years old, same age as me. We started dating our boyfriends around the same time and we were very supportive of one another emotionally with personal problems and relationship problems. She has said that we will be friends for life which I have greatly appreciated. She knows of the man I dated because she was dating one of his best friends who is 30 years old whereas the man I dated is in his 40s.
When my female friend broke up with her boyfriend, she was emotionally devastated and I was wholeheartedly supportive of her. As she was explaining to me about her breakup, I started recognizing all the red flags I’ve been brushing off and numbing out with the man I was dating. Soon after, I decided to start distancing myself from him because it was becoming very unhealthy for me. And I realized why I was so stressed, depressed and losing so much weight because of me constantly overthinking about our relationship and how to win over his attention / affection because he started giving his attention to another woman in front of me during our break. Was I wrong to have felt hurt or was too sensitive that this was happening even though we weren’t dating but agreed to take a pause in our relationship?
When I tried explaining to my female friend what was happening in our relationship, she took sides with him. Although she kept saying she’s not taking sides with him, she said she was trying to give me the logical reasoning to his actions which she understood why he would act the way he would because I was at fault in her opinion.. which made feel a bit uneasy and tense.
When she was going through her breakup, I was very upset with how her ex was treating her and her other supportive girlfriends were upset with him too because he really didn’t treat her right. And she was so grateful to us for our support and expressed it. Then when she would talk about her breakup again with me, she switched and got upset that we were taking sides with her and being upset with her ex. She started defending him saying he’s not a bad guy and it doesn’t make her feel better when we talk about him negatively. So I got confused but I just assumed she was moody and didn’t want to be emotional about the break up.
She also said something weird or at least my gut / intuition felt weird about a comment she made - she said that one of her friends told her that she should date an older man next time because they may have the mature minds to handle her which she laughed and agreed with.. But I kind of sensed that maybe she might be interested in the man I dated because he is older and she’s been more neutral than supportive with my and the man I dated, our fading relationship. She has been explaining to me about his side of thinking when she doesn’t know him as well as I do and I’ve seen darker parts of him that I've been trying to explain to her but she’s not acknowledging or believes in what I am saying. She has only made one negative comment about him that she thinks and has observed that he likes attention, that’s it.
I warned her about how some but not all older men can be a bit controlling or take advantage. But in the end, age shouldn’t matter, the man should be good and mature. And she replied shortly, “Oh I’m not talking about wanting older men in their 40s and 50s. I’m talking about men in their 30s” which I got confused because the man she dated was in his 30s..? I didn’t say anything. I’ve stopped talking about him to her because I'm not feeling good about the whole thing. I also think it just won’t do any good to keep talking about him to her. It doesn’t go anywhere and I don’t want our friendship to get uncomfortable. But am I sensing things wrong? Am I being too sensitive? Am I making a bigger deal than it should be? I would really appreciate outside perspective on this whole situation and how I can go about it.

2023.06.05 07:40 RuinSalt1121 Feeling invalid
Feeling very invalid because I can no longer cut so instead, I decided to keep putting my hands under hot water on purpose while doing the dishes and filling up bowls & cups and purpose dumping it slowly across my hands to burn. Part of my skin started turning red & got sensitive, but now its alright and everything else is fine now too.
It makes me feel invalid because there's no scars, no marks, nothing to show that I relapsed and hurt myself. Nothing to show that I'm still struggling... and it's just making me feel like I'm being an attention-seeker now..

2023.06.05 07:40 metamorphyk De-optimizing homepage> re-optimize internal page
Just thought I'd seek some other advice. I have a site that is approx 15 years old. The niche has gotten quite competitive over the past couple of years and we have somewhat dropped off to second page for some commercial terms though our informational content still ranks pretty well and we do still rank well for some commercial terms. i.e. Lawyer but not Lawyer [city modifier]
Due to the sites age the homepage was once optimised and ranked well for our commercial terms. With other sites, newer sites etc I tend to use inner pages for obvious reasons i.e. schema mark up, ability to delete pages etc
I did create content for an inner page and published it. Google has picked up on some terms and even though it is more detailed, more comprehensive, it hasn't really fought for a ranking against the homepage. I did hope that it would.
I have done this before. I have another site, in a completely different niche that the homepage never quite ranked on the first page of google and so I built and inner page and it competed, I somewhat de-optimized the homepage by removing some terms or prioritising similar words. Eventually, this page did rank first page, with no external links i might add, I believe this page ranked due to us being very reactive during covid and creating content specific to our niche which drove more than a years worth of traffic in a few weeks. We were the first in our niche to publish that content. This is really just for interests sake if you've read this far you are probably interested in SEO more than most (lol)
Anyway, back to the main site, I am considering completely de-optimising the root/homepage and sending a couple of links to the inner page and/or at very least linking internally with relevant anchors.
Any advice/stories/things that must be done or avoided appreciated.

2023.06.05 07:40 Jealous-Gift-4848 Exploring the Delightful Flavors of Bhutanese Cuisine- Norbu Bhutan
Nestled in the heart of the Himalayas, the kingdom of Bhutan is not only known for its breathtaking landscapes and Gross National Happiness but also for its unique and delectable cuisine. Bhutanese dishes reflect the country's rich cultural heritage, blending traditional flavors with fresh ingredients to create a truly remarkable culinary experience. In this blog post, we will embark on a gastronomic journey and explore some of the iconic Bhutanese Dish
Ema Datshi is considered the national dish of Bhutan and is a staple in every Bhutanese household. This fiery dish is made with green chili peppers cooked in a rich and creamy cheese sauce. The combination of the spicy chilies and the creamy cheese creates a harmonious balance of flavors that is both satisfying and addictive.
Another popular dish in Bhutan is Datshi, which is essentially a cheese curry. Made from the same local cheese used in Ema Datshi, Datshi is a rich and hearty dish that is often accompanied by vegetables, mushrooms, or meat. The creamy and flavorful cheese sauce makes it a favorite among locals and visitors alike.
Phaksha Paa is a traditional Bhutanese pork dish that showcases the country's love for meat. The succulent pieces of pork are stir-fried with spicy red chilies, onions, and a generous amount of garlic. The combination of flavors in Phaksha Paa is tantalizing, and the dish is often served with red rice, a Bhutanese staple.
No exploration of Bhutanese cuisine would be complete without mentioning Momos. These dumplings are filled with a variety of fillings such as minced meat, cheese, or vegetables. Steamed or fried to perfection, Momos are often served with a spicy tomato-based sauce, adding an extra kick to these delightful bite-sized treats.
Bhutanese cuisine offers a unique blend of flavors and culinary traditions that will captivate any food enthusiast. From the fiery Ema Datshi to the savory Phaksha Paa, each dish reflects the country's rich cultural heritage and commitment to preserving its culinary traditions. So, if you ever find yourself in the Land of the Thunder Dragon, don't miss the opportunity to savor the delightful flavors of Bhutanese cuisine. Your taste buds will thank you for the experience!
If you are planning for Bhutan trip, Norbu Bhutan Travel
is the best choice for your memorable and enchanting tour to Bhutan.

2023.06.05 07:35 Habis1923 Crashing when playing games issue
Specs: AMD Ryzen 5 2600 Six-Core Processor 3.40 GHz
RX 580 8gb
16 gb DDR4 ram
Hi, I've been dealing with this issue for a very long time, basically any time I play a batch of certain games like Red Dead 2, Far Cry 5, Cyberpunk 2077, and especially Rainbow Six Siege my computer is able to withstand about 5-10 minutes before the game freezes on the frame and my whole computer just stops working. It stays on the frozen frame for about 30 seconds to a minute before black screening for about another 2 minutes and finally returning to my desktop screen with the game closed but my computer runs very slow and glitchy, by that I mean it stutters, freezes, and is just overall slow however once I hard restart it, it works fine. I've tried just about everything, I've updated my drivers, BIOS, chipset, OS, I've done factory resets on my PC, I've replaced the PSU, thermal paste on both my CPU and GPU, I've done integrity checks on my ram, hard drives, and CPU, I've tried better placing my case fans for airflow and cooling, I've looked in event viewer for ID codes to figure out the problem without luck, I've tried installing the games on both my SSD, and HDD. Nothing seems to work and I'm lost at this point and frustrated unable to play the games I enjoy with my friends. I can play lots of demanding games without issue such as Arma 3 with mods, Hell Let Loose, Squad, Star wars: The Fallen Order, but it happens only with certain games. I've been able to make some games work by lowering my Anti Aliasing settings, and I've discovered it works better without TAA, however with some of the games I turn Anti Aliasing off and it still crashes. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

2023.06.05 07:35 Imaginary-Baker9264 Red raised bumps on skin
| || |
As of a few weeks I’ve been dealing with red skin discoloration in my extremities. Doctors have treated me for allergies but alas a month later still dealing. As of yesterday I am noticing some of the redness beginning to show little raised bumps or bubbles on my arms. Again this is not my usual skin texture at all. I’m trying not to stress out but im very frustrated and worried. Im going to call for another follow up tomorrow. But I’m the meantime I’d appreciate some guidance submitted by Imaginary-Baker9264 to DermatologyQuestions [link] [comments]
2023.06.05 07:35 ahteef Need a new car - suggestions?
Hello all, I’m entering college soon and my girlfriend is moving far enough to the point that seeing her at least once a week is no longer a reality. Now, I’m slowly but surely saving up for a new to me car to replace my 1.8T MK7 Golf. Simplyput, I’m looking for a fun daily driver. Something beyond the FWD 220hp (with a flash tune) hatchback I currently own. I’m very familiar with VWAG, so I’d love to stick with it. I’m very stuck between the A3, S3, and the S4. I know that the A3 can achieve a decent power level, but I crave at least 300hp which I don’t think the A3 can do reliably (correct me if I’m wrong). This is why I like the S3, as it leaves me with no need to tune the car. My only gripe with the A/S3 is the trumpety sound that comes from the EA888. Other than that, I like them a lot. However, something about the B8.5 S4s really make me smile. So now what I am asking is, should I get a low mileage example of an A/S3, or a roughly 100k mile stock S4 for the same price? I heard that these supercharged engines are reliable if taken care of, so is it worth buying for a daily driver? My family has owned plenty of Audis that have reached well past the 100k mark with no issues other than things like waterpumps and transmission services, so I’d like to know if there’s anything else that makes the S4 a red flag for a college student. Please let me know!

2023.06.05 07:34 basbell4 Bike co-ops / volunteer mechanic opportunities in/near Queens?
I used to volunteer a bit at recycle-a bicycle's LIC location some years back but it seems like they've been closed for a while. Mechanical gardens also seems to have moved to Red Hook, though I've received conflicting info on both of these spots and am not entirely sure...
That being said, are there any other places within reasonable distance of the LIC area with opportunities for volunteer mechanics, etc? Any tips appreciated!

2023.06.05 07:33 Crouza Do you think the discussion of Fun vs Balance could apply to Pathfinder 2e as well?
So there's been a bit of a discussion in the video game sphere over the relationship between Fun and Balance. Often, the case is made that a perfect or even close-to-perfect balance is not what many gamers want and may be antithetical to the concept of fun. There are many examples of this especially in live service games, where characters are rebalanced, nerfed to bring them closer to others, and generally end up making the game a worse experience than when the game was imbalanced but had a variety of different and uniquely imbalanced things.
I myself tend to agree with this sentiment, having experienced games such as Overwatch, For Honor, and other such games end up becoming much less fun when characters were reworked to be more balanced, but lost a lot of the fun factor to them. So it got me to thinking, why do I like Pathfinder 2e so much even though it basically did the exact same thing I complained about in pursuing balance to a crazy degree?
Pathfinder 2e, Fun for some and Balance for others.
Pathfinder 2e is touted as being extremely balanced, and we all know this. Every single +1 matters and while some take this advice and try to turn it into borderline dogma, the games tight math can make it so needing as much help as possible and stacking teamwork benefits together is the best way to play. Pathfinder 2e is one of my favorite games, but I will admit that the balance is not the reason I enjoy the system, but rather the variety. Every class has choices to make, and these choices help keep the experience fresh and personalize your character. But at the same time, I do feel like in the pursuit of balance, some of the fun elements of the game were lost.
Casters are probably the biggest example, but there are others as well. Two-Weapon fighting became a bit more boring now due to how it works. I've seen this pop up with other elements such as Summoning creatures, with how two-handed weapons play out, and recently even just spell slots at all. These are all balance elements that are designed so that one option doesn't overly dominate the game, but at times it can frustrate me both as a GM running the game, and a player playing it.
However, I also feel the need to stress that balance itself isn't bad, but that fun is something to be considered, and if fun means that some things can be a little more powerful than others, or some stuff might get their role's toes stepped on, imo that's not a bad thing. Stuff like Warpriest Cleric, Warrior Bard, and Battle Oracle should not be as bad as they currently are, because that isn't fun for the people playing them, nor is it for the GM who has to remember how bad one of the party members is and adjust accordingly due to the game saying "this is the most balanced option for this". I used to think that giving casters a decent proficiency would ruin the appeal of other classes, because it'd mean they were good at both hitting things and have access to a arsenal of spells for utility. I no longer believe this, because that is not how people play this game, and is only how a few people play this game.
Math, Feeling, and Class Choice
If the casters could all be about as good as the martials are at hitting stuff, I do not believe there would be a flood of people ditching martials to play these casters. I think a minority of players would, but these are the same players who left those casters to all go and make Gnome Flickmace Fighters the second that tech was discovered. The same applies to casters being able to apply bonuses to their to-hit spells to keep pace with martials. I don't think people would just stop making Archers and only make casters if this were the case. I think balance is not actually all that important compared to fulfilling the class fantasy that people want, and that Pathfinder 2e has managed to do that with it's non-magic users, but continues to struggle when it comes to its magical classes. I think the remaster makes me hopeful that this will change, and signals that as much as I admire Mark Seifters approach to making the game as tightly balanced as possible, the team is working to rebalance some of the aspects of 2e that may have put balance too far ahead of fun.
That's the main crux of my view on PF 2e. Below is my take on 5e and why despite being imbalanced, it's not fun.
Imbalanced in fulfillment, not in power
5e is in a lot of ways the opposite of Pathfinder 2e, in terms of game design and approach to content. 5e's loose and sometimes blatantly missing rules is contrasted by the granularity that Pathfinder 2e has. 5e also does not want to release new content often, whereas pathfinder 2e is always adding something new with every year that passes. A part of this dichotomy is also in balance, where Pathfinder 2e prides itself on said game balance and 5e blatantly ignores it.
But where Pathfinder 2e wins and 5e doesn't for me, is that Pathfinder 2e for all of its "this is balanced, even if the player won't have as much fun" approach to casters, for the most part paizo has managed to capture the character fantasy of most classes. 5e's balance problem is not the actual issue, because for most people they won't even notice that the warlocks Eldritch Blast will outperform the damage of the ranger's longbow. "Balance" is something we of the number crunching few really notice and latch onto, but for most people this isn't actually important. Class fantasy is important, that is the "fun" element of the game, and something 5e doesn't do well when a class doesn't have magic. Because to draw from a real example I went through, when I'm a barbarian and I'm swinging my axe at an opponent, I don't care that I'm hitting them for 24 damage while the wizard just did a lightning bolt for a juicy 34 damage on all the enemies in a line. What I don't like is that every turn is "move, do two attacks, end turn" for the entire fight, while the wizard is going through a Rolodex of options. I couldn't give a shit if the barbarian's damage was better thant he wizards because I'm in melee and they're in range and it's only fair. My fantasy of a barbarian was not fulfilled because my strength was meaningless without ways to utilize it for more than just damage.
Pathfinder 2e doesn't have this problem, because my barbarian is given a new ability every other level, and take an archetype for even more things to do in battle, and can also act as a field medic, an information gatherer, a naturalist, and can arm wrestle a storm giant and probably win. Skill feats, class feats, and a generous amount of ASI's and skill points mean that I am basically never running out of things for my character to do, or to be better at.
And this is where Pathfinder 2e manages to win in the fun department, at least in my opinion. Paizo at least seems to have stopped utilizing the beating stick of nerfs and is starting to use the carrot of buffs, so that's nice to see. But I'd love to hear from you guys, and see where you stand on the whole Fun vs Balance debate.

2023.06.05 07:30 blueqxill T’was The Night Before Test Day…
As the title suggests…
My test is tomorrow! I’m in Las Vegas, NV, testing at the Flamingo location. I’m pretty mediocre. Having issues with speed control and minute, little things I’m forgetting to do. The nerves are high. I’m very much anxious and my heart is pounding. I fear I’m going to fail over speed control and said little things. Advice would be appreciated to stay focused and go in nervous, come out with a license!
Also, how does the pre-check work? Could someone walk me through the entire check-in up till the actual process? I’ve been told it’s park, line up, check in, park in the designated area, checking for just front lights, back, and that’s about it. Some are saying headlights and beams and defroster and things? And that I have to have special permission to park in the area? I have no clue what or where those are (the car features). Any clarification would be greatly appreciated. Please and thank you all on that as well.
And uh, really, just any last minute tidbits and words of encouragement - I appreciate it all. I sound repetitive. Thank you!

2023.06.05 07:30 MaidenInBlakc Boy Troubles
Okay so I'm a gay male, and there's this guy I like but he is a WALKING RED FLAG. He has really bad depression, so I won't entirely blame him. His hygiene isn't the best, but it'a better than some of y'all rank asses. He and I don't have anything in commom other than being gay biological men, and he's kinda a rude prick to me a lot, but I cam't tell if it's sarcasm or not. idk what to do, if I went out with him, I'd have to wait 2 years, but I could find someone better in that time. if it helps, I've known them 4 years

2023.06.05 07:28 Noghbuddy Impromptu Test Run
I got a little bored and drunk. Then this happened. Just a bit of dumb action. I could try and spin this as me improving my ability to write more action oriented scenes, but well. Yeah, drunk and bored. Enjoy and tell me what you think.
CW: Sweet sweet excessive violence
The little skiff drifted lazily along the asteroid belt. In a backwater system, free from prying eyes, the crew had ample time and space to test their newest toy. The ursdain in the pilot’s seat adjusted a couple controls before settling back in his chair. His avian co-pilot was observing the rest of the crew on the security feed.
“What is he doing?”
The ursdain leaned over, “Practicing?”
The avian’s half lidded stare was the only response.
In the cargo bay were the skiff’s other three occupants. A rather burly male human with brown skin and a mostly shaved head was yanking his tomahawk back out of the wooden board he had hung up on the wall. He walked back a few paces before turning and hurling it back at the target.
“Do you have to do that right now?” asked the exacerbated vulptan.
“Nope.” He responded while lining up his next throw.
“Just let him. If he doesn’t keep busy, he’ll keep trying to add ‘modifications.” The red-headed human female interjected while elbow deep in their prototype.
“You’re just jealous of my brilliance.”
“Sure. We’ll call it that.”
Meanwhile as the ursdain began to ponder his next meal a red blip flashed on his display followed by a sharp claxon. He slammed the red alert, “Thakt, we got company!”
The avian was already attempting to jam the enemy sensors, but they’d been made. “They’re on their way! Pirates looking to board!” She keyed the intercom, “Prepare for boarders!”
As soon as the lights went red the man in the jury-rigged shop ran to the new machine. “This thing ready?”
“The targeting computer hasn’t been installed and there’s still the issue of-“
“Can it move!?”
“Strap me in!” He snached up the helmet and mask then climbed in the suit. The women began closing and sealing panels as he donned the helmet, flipped down the visor, and sealed the mask to his face.
“Gonzo! Listen to me. You don’t have a lot of time in that thing, so you gotta be in and out. Alright?”
“Lil, this is what I’m good at. Let me work.” She rolled her eyes as she closed the front up.
He opened then closed his mechanical fingers and rolled his shoulders. The suit seemed to be responding well. He stood to its full height and slammed the dome helmet down over his head. The other two already snatched a couple weapons and ran for the bridge to secure it. He stalked over to the armory bench to pick up some toys and party favors when the com cracked to life in his ear.
“Gonzo? You receiving?”
“Loud and clear.”
“Our only shot at getting out of here is you disabling their engines and breaking whatever they use to mate with us.”
He giggled slightly as he strapped the weapon harness over his mid-section. “Copy. Break shit. Can do.”
The ship shuddered and jolted. “They’re broadcasting for surrender.”
“Sure, I’ll accept their surrender.”
“Funny. They’re about to breach the stern airlock. Get ready.”
Gonzo drew a breath and put his game face on. Their MO is to breach loud and fast. A little shock and awe. He planted a couple surprises by the hatch then took cover around the bulkhead.
“They’re about to breach.” He popped a couple smoke grenades and tossed them down the corridor. Then an idea struck him, and he popped a couple more and thrust them in his harness for a bit of Blackbeard flair. He readied his weapon and checked the other two. All he could do was wait.
A few seconds later the hatch blasted in and two canids rushed into the haze. Gonzo didn’t know how armored they were, but he figured being covered in burning napalm was a bad thing. He leaned the nozzle around the corner and lit up the entrance. The blinding light pierced the smoke and judging from the screams, they weren’t ready for assaulting a weapons manufacturing ship. Now came the fun part of the suit. While the auto-aim and friend/foe feature weren’t installed, it did have a suite of sensors such as sonar, lidar, and infrared.
Gonzo could see the outlines of the thrashing pirates and held his fire. A couple more pirates entered the hall to drag their comrades out. That’s when he hit the clacker. The anti-personnel mines went off, filling the confined space with hundreds of ball-bearings in an instant.
“Hey! We gotta clean all that up when you’re done you know!”
“Relax. I’m advancing now. Give me a map.”
Sure enough, a holo layout of the pirate ship sprung to life in the corner of his vision, complete with the highlighted sections of engineering and security. He advanced through the smoke onto the pirate ship. As he emerged through the smoke, more billowing off him like a demon fresh from Hell, he saw more pirates readying to storm his little craft. They were lightly armored. Shame. With another squeeze and lazy turn, he coated the would-be intruders.
Realizing they bit off more than they could chew, the lights on the pirate vessel began flashing red, and a call to repel boarders went out. Gonzo hustled down the passages headed toward engineering. He rounded the corner and dove back behind the corner as the ursdain with a gatling laser opened up from the other end of the hall. He wasn’t sure the flamethrower would make it to the other side, so he swapped to his baby. He tossed his last smoke grenade around the corner and counted to ten.
When he felt the passage was good and obscured, he held his replica China Lake around the corner and fired. Fwoomp…BOOM! Something wet and red hit the wall beside Gonzo. I think I got ‘em. He pumped another round into the chamber and continued.
He found Engineering easily enough and stormed inside. It was a large room dominated by…Well, the engine he supposed. Gonzo wasn’t an engineer, but he was a 2300. He was about to jog up to the biggest most important looking bit when his legs were taken out from under him. He was quickly bound up in ssypno coils and could hear the suit groaning under the pressure.
“There’ll be no more of that. Now let’s get you out of that can.”
Gonzo struggled to no avail, but he’d be damned before he gave up. He took a breath and forced his arms out away from his body. The suit groaned and struggled to give him the breathing room he needed. When he thought he had the space to work with, his hand shot to his knife strapped to his belt. He drew it and twisted his hand just as the coils snapped shut around him. The pirate stabbed herself in the soft scales of her underbelly just as Gonzo drew his arm around his torso slicing long and deep.
She shrieked as he carved, and quickly tried to slither away, but he snatched a piece of her armor and rode her, continuing to stab and slash at the joints in her suit. She tried to curl in on herself and grab the man with her upper arms. He wrestled with her for a while before he drew his offhand behind her opposing arm then using her own death grip on his main hand bent her arm around his. Her elbow snapped and she shrieked. With brief freedom of movement, Gonzo drew his knife up and plunged it into her sub armored neck. Her tail thrashed and writhed before the life seeped from her.
Gasping and sweating profusely, he drew himself up and stumbled to the drive core. Or what he thought was the drive core. He wasn’t an astrophysicist, but he was sure this thing didn’t like heavy explosives. He quickly rigged up an IED around the biggest glowiest part and set it to go off on his clacker.
He jogged from engineering to security but was stopped in the passages by a couple canids ambushing him. One opened fire with a laser-rifle, striking him in the upper torso, but the armor kept his chest from being cauterized. The blast streaked off the chest piece leaving a red-hot mark. It burned.
“Keep out of fire, Gonzo! I was trying to tell you that the heat-sinks aren’t finished yet!”
There may not have been a new hole in him, but it burned like Hell. He closed the distance to his attackers, too close to use his rifle, and they met him with claw and teeth drawn. The first canid threw themselves at him, knocking him down, and clamping their jaws around where his neck would be. He heard a hiss as something gave way on his shoulder. He fought and rolled to buck them off, but they held fast.
Gonzo decided it was time to draw his sidearm and clamped his hand down on the head of the assaulting canid to keep them in place. The other one tried to claw at his legs, but only found solid titanium alloy. He reached down to his holster and drew the comically oversized revolver, now appropriately sized in the power-armor’s fist. He thrust the barrel under the canid’s chin and fired. Their friends’ helmet rocketing off their head gave Gonzo the brief shock needed to roll the first pirate off him, raise his pistol, and fire point blank at his second attacker. As their head snapped back, he hauled himself back onto his feet and limped into security.
He needed to find a way to release his ship but drew short at the two canids and taurian blocking the consoles. The two canids threw themselves at Gonzo, biting and clawing for all they were worth. The heat in the suit was becoming unbearable. It was starting to sear bits of exposed flesh. Gonzo regretted jumping in in a tank top.
One canid clamped their jaws on his neck while the other went for his legs trying to drop him to the deck. Something snapped to his left and he lost all control of his left arm. It was just a hundred pounds of dead weight. He fell back swinging his pistol around trying to pistol-whip his attackers.
“That’s enough! Just give up and we’ll sell you somewhere nice.” The taurian called out.
Gonzo bucked his hips and fired at the canid by his legs but missed. Repeating what he did before he point-blank lobotomized the canid by his shoulder. With a roll, he popped himself back up readying his next shot when the second canid fell on him. He held his ground as they slashed and leapt to bite.
He caught them in the air and slammed them into the bulkhead beside him. It was nice to be eye level with them for once. He used this to his advantage by slamming his titanium fist into their face and gut repeatedly, feeling each subtle bone crack and snap. The taurian grabbed him under the arms and hurled him to the other side of the room as the last canid slumped down the wall.
The pirate drew some kind of bladed weapon. Big mistake. Gonzo drew his tomahawk, and sprinted forward with his head down. Using all the power in the suit he had, he slammed into her stomach and drove her forward into the wall.
She recovered her breath quickly and began raining blows down on his back and shoulders. The strain was beginning to get to him. Sweat was streaming down his body, stinging his eyes. The suit burned. He bent his knees then shot upright, driving his helmet into her chin. She rocked back in shock and Gonzo took a couple steps back. His left arm was dead. He could only grasp with the fingers. The pirate rubbed her chin.
“Oh, you’ll pay for that.”
Gonzo quickly tossed his tomahawk up and grabbed it by the end, before hurling it at his enemy. It buried in her shoulder, and she screamed. He sprinted at her full tilt with his head down shoulder out and pinned her to the wall. She kept fighting and pushed him back. Gonzo used his hips to swing his dead arm around to the pirate and clamped down with his hand. His hand locked in place as the taurian began to try and ineffectually push him away. Panting, he decided to give her a bit of backward-knee syndrome. He hauled back and put his and his suits’ full weight into a stomp kick right on her knee.
It folded back and she shrieked. Now at chest height he began slamming his fist into her helmet until it warped and broke. He stopped when he saw the stream of blood pour out the bottom.
He tried to make his way to the console, but realized his hand was stuck gripping the dead-weight of the corpse. He planted one boot on its back and pulled for all he was worth. With a fresh souvenir of taurian hide trapped in his grasp, he quickly worked the security console and disengaged the clams holding his ship in place. Once freed, he pulled out his clacker and slammed it. The whole ship rocked and shuddered. Catching his que he limp-jogged back to his ship. The remaining pirates were too busy with damage control as the ship quickly began filling with vacuum. Gonzo found his airlock with minimal resistance and threw himself in it.
“Blast!” he cried as he clutched the safety bar inside the lock. Grokna punched the skiff for all it was worth headed for the nearest jump point.
When the airlock cycled Gonzo limped back into the scorched cargo hold with hydro leaking down his left side. Lil and Korsk sprinted in to check on the man as he clumsily clutched at the emergency releases. The dome helmet fired clean off the top while the chest piece fired out revealing the sweat drenched and burned pilot. The suit dropped to its knees as Gonzo flopped out ripping his mask and helmet off. He gulped at the fresh air and luxuriated in the coolness of the metal floor when he gasped, “I…I have…Some notes…Need…Better cooling…”
