Hi this is my first post not sure if anyone has asked this but does Amanda's monster form look like wooly to you? My game theory is that they agreed to switch places but Amanda is trapped as wooly and trying to help the viewers escape. That's why they're aware and that's why Amanda the adventurer is so aggressive and violent to them.

2023.03.21 22:23 Muuseo Wannabe Vtuber and the Anonymity Crisis!

So I've been working towards being a v-tuber, and lately I've been a bit paranoid regarding the "recognized irl/on another platform by voice alone" type thing.
My dilemma here is that, I deeply cherish being able to use my voice to sing, speak, entertain and exercise my vocal reach. BUT, I am equally as terrified of being recognized anywhere other than the platform I choose to present myself on..
I realized that simply using a voice changer to edit my pitch (I'm not too big of a fan for extremely silly voices- other than small, subtle effects.) may still make me be recognized (or people can just edit the changes out even if I tell others not to.)
I've been considering sticking with tts (like Zentreya) but something about the lack of that vocal range and utility throws me off. I can stick to it for non-streaming videos on other platforms (because I can edit the voices to fit the range and emotion I want- like a vocaloid or utau. But I can't do that live).
So what's the advice? What should this Wannabe V-tuber do?

2023.03.21 22:20 StupidSolipsist Mice & Murder appreciation post

Hey, gang, I just rewatched Mice & Murder and wanna sing its praises. Spoilers below.
Grant O'Brien kills it as Detective Sylvester Cross. He nails the balance of a legitimately smart hero and an insecure, bitchy weirdo. Rehka Shankar's and his banter is the heart of this season, and it is great from both of them. Hats off to Grant especially for staying cool while being framed and letting the audience enjoy the table's misdirected reaction, without interrupting to say out-of-character that he was innocent.
Speaking of Rehka Shankar, she and Ally Beardsley did the most to play up the silly animal setting, and I appreciate them both for it. Daisy's trash and shit... Lars's barking and rolling around... It really relieved the pressure from the intense plotting to be reminded that this was still a ridiculous setting with opportunities for cartoonishness.
Katie Marovitch as Gangie Green and Raphael Chestang as Vicar Ian Prescott were both such entertaining roleplayers, leaning into their quirky characters. Gangie's immediate bond with Matilda Molesly warmed my heart, and the Vicar's complete clown show from beginning to end was great dedication to the bit. Remembering to play for the audience is a big difference between playing ttrpgs and recording a ttrpg actual play, and their comedic chops give them such good instincts for D20.
I need more Sam Reich on D20. Buckster $ Boyd stole the show for me; a great performance of a well-thought-out character. And his engagement was infectious! I felt like I was watching it with Sam, the show's #1 fan.
And of course, Brennan Lee Mulligan. A well-paced mystery is so hard to pull off in tabletop. It took a great table and a fair amount of intervention, but yes, that's what it takes. With all those critical successes, the dice didn't do him any favors keeping control of the pacing. And yet, he kept a feeling of excitement and progress over many hours of gameplay. Masterfully done.
M&M is really near the top for me. What other well-earned compliments did I miss?

2023.03.21 22:20 VazduhTrepti First time reader, Ranting about and probably misunderstanding half of the main series.

On my first read-through of MBOTF and after 2 months of reading i feel like i'm a decade older. Though the author has created a very rich world with increadible characters, I have some complaints/questions/need to rant about things that I think deserve it. Just to preface this, I want to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the series, but I don't think there's a need for me to write on Malazan about the good parts of Malazan Book of the Fallen. I am aware that i might be wrong and would enjoy people correcting some misconceptions i might have.
Lets just jump into it.
God damn, does the author love to write it. Like 15% of each book is a random character philosophizing about a tangentially related topic. While I do enjoy philosophy (hell, one of my favorite books is God Emperor of Dune), in this series, it falls flat. When the author creates an interesting world filled with gods and ascendants, and a convergence of these deities is about to happen, I get to read pages on pages of a barbarian warrior thinking about the nature of evil/society/leaders/sandwiches. It gets old real quick, hearing an uneducated warrior talking about the Pathos of a battlefield. I'd be able to tolerate it if it had something to say instead of either being meaningless or repeating the same opinions over and over again.
Jesus Christ, there is a lot of it. Malazan soldiers, Karsa, Kalam, Tavore, Cutter, the one drunk Malazan soldier in particular... I'm not one to complain about a character surviving against overwhelming odds (that's what stories are for), but what I do have a problem with is when a character survives a completely unrealistic situation and then everyone else continues to praise them on how strong, smart, attractive and perfect they are (Tavore/Karsa). When Tavore does barely anything and survives purely on plot armor, and we get paragraphs and paragraphs of other characters talking about how strong she is, how she's a genius to rival Coltaine and Dassem, how good of a person she is... Like holy hell, I could write a whole book about how little I care about Tavore. (hahahha) Or when Karsa kills 2 hounds of shadow with his bare hands out of nowhere, and a whole army is hesitant to fight him. it would be tolerable if it were consistent between characters. But when in the same book we have Hellian (a normal soldier) drunkenly fight through a conquering of a whole empire and survive based on nothing, and compare it with Trull Sengar (one of the best warriors of the Tist Edur, the guy who stopped Icarium, something of High House Something) after a long and hard journey back to his home and girl, he gets stabbed by a random enemy soldier because the author wanted us to feel bad. Or when Karsa can destroy a spell binding a Jaghut using pure stupidity and later on killing hounds of light/shadow/dark left and right. And then we have Coltaine suffering through a whole continent only to die at the very end because "Muh Malazan Discipline." When most of the time characters survive crazy situations with plot armor, and when the author kills them just for the shock factor it really pulled me out of the story.
When I was introduced to Malazan, I was told that it was a book for intellectuals who can remember 500 characters and how each of them contributes to the plot. In reality, we get introduced to characters we start to care about in the first two books. Then, for the next eight books, we are constantly getting some new irrelevant side stories in which the characters contribute almost nothing to the original story. These side stories could be cut out with little to no impact on the main story. Examples of these side stories include RedMask, Karsa's Travels, the Shake, The Snake, Barghast, and random POV characters that do nothing (Kid from TTH, Gruntle in the last few books). I just want to see the characters I care about. Also, for me personally, every time I start caring about a character, the author has them do nothing and introduces ten more. The author creates an incredibly rich and detailed world with gods and heroes like Icarium, Coltaine, Cotillion, Rake, Kruppa, and Karsa. However, we get half the book be about generic edgy soldier nb 40529, or fucking Crokus and Fiddler (both of them grew on me later but in the first couple of books they are just boring). I think this series would be 10 times better if it was half the length.
Coltaine and Mallick Rel: I loved the Chain of Dogs and even like its tragic end, it's poetic. But the execution was god-awful. He reaches the gates of Aren and doesn't get help because "Muh Malazan discipline", these soldiers to not mutiny and follow a clearly corrupted commander who is blatantly influenced by the enemy. It would be fine if we didn't have ten books of Malazan soldiers disobeying orders. Even in DoD, when Bryce Beddict thinks about how Malazan soldiers are so rebellious and stubborn and are willing to go against their commanders. Don't even get me started on Mallick Rel, who, through a little writing trick called "just because," is able to infiltrate the Claw behind the scenes and lie to everyone that the Wickans and Coltaine were the bad guys all along, even though there are 30k civilians who would beg to differ. Just reverse plot armor.
The fate of Hetan and Onos T'oolan: This is probably one of the worst parts of the story. In the penultimate book, which is supposed to finish the story, half of it is spent on the Barghast who are politicking around in their clans. And we have the two former main characters (Skeleton T'oolan best character in the series) get completely lobotomized and die/get hobbled for no reason. What the hell happened to T'oolan? "My people want to go to war. I don't want to lead them to war. I'm going to kill myself and hope they don't go to war without me. Also, really hope they don't go to war without me, and I really hope they don't do anything to my wife and children." Then we have Hettan, a strong and competent warrior who forgets to do anything to save her and her children's lives because the author wanted to write the hobbling scene to shock the readers. To top it all off, instead of reflecting on what happened, all of them just die and contribute nothing. And I'm left wondering why the hell did I read all of this.
Now here's a quick list to save me from writing a whole novel:
  1. Why was Karsa able to knock Icarium out for no reason?
  2. The Pannion Domin seems like a metaphor for society that a teenager listening to "Polly" by Nirvana would think of.
  3. Heboric is almost interesting for three books, only to do almost nothing.
  4. The ending of House of Chains was an ass-pull and extremely unsatisfying.
  5. Why does Mallick Rel become Emperor? No one stops him? Not a single person from Aren starts to talk about what happened?
  6. Why is the conversation between Shadowthrone and Draconus cut?
  7. Toc dying three times seems silly.
  8. Whats the point of a master of the deck of dragons? Like we get introduced to a pretty materialistic world in which godhood is bestowed upon powerful individuals only because of their power, yet we get a guy being gifted by god to become the master of the deck.
  9. Why is Bottle having wet dreams?
  10. Udinaas is somehow extremely smart and witty, but at the same time, completely tedious to read through for 60k words.
  11. Why did the author have to make Kettle get raped?
  12. Why is Duiker resurrected?
  13. Bridgeburners assemble! (showing up to save the day while being dead)
  14. Kallor is an insufferable jerk who killed millions, but Rake and Caladan Brood just hang out with him.
  15. How strong are the Hounds of Shadow/Light? They are treated as unstoppable monsters in the first few books, and then we get Karsa farming them for XP in TTH.
  16. Tavore decides to commit suicide by desert and gets bailed out by plot armor.
  17. The shake storyline is completely unnecessary and i couldnt care less.
  18. Tattersail and Genoas Paran affair was very forced and unexpected, and later on Paran pretends she was the love his life after spending one night together.
  19. Janath Anar getting tortured and raped was completely unecessary to describe, especially when her memory is wiped and it does nothing later on.
  20. Seran Pedacs child just not doing anything?
I've noticed the author loves wo write self-contained storylines which are at best a fun distraction and at worst just a massive brick wall you have to trudge through to get to the interesting stuff. Like a solid third of this series could have been its own collection of short stories and the world would be better for it.
And then the other half of the storylines that actually contribute to the plot and have interesting characters he saves for spin off novels.
Like a baby, I'm all tired out by my crying. Don't have the energy to rant anymore( though i'm sure i could think of something, and there are probably 20 complaints i forgot about). Before i end i just want to say that i actually really liked this story and some of the moments/ storylines /characters were increadible god damn does it have a lot of flaws.

Something I’m slowly realizing while rewatching is that more of my favorite underrated goofy filler episodes and fav quotes come from Dan-written eps, ex: “copper boom,” “Babette ate oatmeal,” “beaked” by a swan, “why did you drop out of Yale,” “prepared deviled eggs to throw at my car,” “you seem very obsessed with length,” “Oy to the vey,” etc. What have you noticed upon rewatching?

2023.03.21 22:19 alienuri Is it important to find what type of genre and song match to my voice instead of try to learn all type of song?

I shouldn’t try practice like Adele or Christina Aguilera when my voice is not like them? (idk how to explain sine I am new to singing, but my voice is more childlike soft voice) Is it better to find what type of song matches to my voice instead of trying all different genre ? When I was taking dance lesson I tried all different type of dance like ballet and hip hop,then I find one type of dance I focused to. But still able to do basic of all type of dance. Singing is not the same ?

2023.03.21 22:17 ChampionsFarmLillian Trying to decide between ducks or rabbits for my farm

Hey guys, I posted a few days ago about starting a farm in my late husband's honor. Everything on the farm is going to be free for the public to come and pick, and I also plan on starting a community garden on the land if anyone is interested. There's lots to do on the farm as far as planting crops go, but I'm also looking to add a new animal at some point in the next few months.

I have plenty of land, but my fence was destroyed during the last major hurricane here. I plan to get an electric fence because we have loads of coyotes and deer in the area that I can hear hunting every night, around dusk. We also have a decent amount of large birds, including vultures, eagles, HUGE owls, hawks, and more. Also, as previously mentioned, I live in a hurricane hotspot, so whatever animal I get will need protection in the event of a bad storm.

I currently have six animals, three dogs and three cats. Two of cats are kittens who we've only had for a few month, but they love the farm and all the animals get along really well. My oldest dog, Odin, is 19 years old and completely blind, if that matters. Want to make sure whatever pet we get won't harass him, although he's old, stays inside, and mostly keeps to himself. I also have another dog, a basenji, who is my service dog. She's very well trained but is a hunting dog. I think she'd get along okay with the animals given her training, but I'll definitely have to introduce them slow and make sure they're all safe.

As far as animals go, I think it'd between getting a few ducks or getting a few rabbits. Whichever animal I get would be kept outside, but I would of course get it a coop or hutch or whatever needed, along with fencing in the area for their protection. My concern is, how do I go about making sure they're safe? If I let them roam around in a outdoor grassy area surrounded by a fence, will that be okay, or will other birds mess with them? Which animal would be more useful for the farm considering my situation? I've heard rabbits make great compost and that would be extremely useful given how much food I plan on growing. On the other hand, ducks would produce eggs and I'd love that. Even if I start with a few and add more later, having another source of food would be very useful to the community. I think I prefer ducks to chickens, although I'm open to learning the pros and cons of both.

I also plan to add a koi pond to the property in the near future, so that's another thing to consider. Right now I'm thinking it's going to be in a completely different area on the property, although I know ducks need water. I could build them a pond or get them a pool if needed.

If anyone has any advice or knowledge they could share with me, it would be much appreciated. This is all a learning experience to me, but I love animals, love to learn, and am absolutely loving this farm life. Thanks for your time & have a blessed day.

2023.03.21 22:17 KingTomasu Interesting memory with an ex and “Cemetery Drive”

One night, I was in the car with my ex and her mother. They were driving 25 minutes to my home to drop me off after I had went on a date to the movies with her which happened to be our last date, on what happened to be our last day. They listen to a lot of alt rock like me, but I really started getting into My Chemical Romance at the time, so she decided to put them on, and I have this clear, vivid memory of us singing along to cemetery drive. Not my ex and I, her MOTHER and I. Who would have thought we’d bond this much on the last time we’d see each other? It’s weird listening to that song now, because all I think about is being in that car at 8pm, with the car stereo set to loud. Nonetheless, it was a happy memory. Music can really help you bond with others.

2023.03.21 22:16 autobuzzfeedbot 21 Facts That Are So Interesting, I Know They Will Live In My Brain For All Of Eternity

  1. While Frank Sinatra's "New York, New York" is probably one of the crooner's best-known songs, it was originally very different. Turns out, we have Robert De Niro to thank for it! Composer John Kander and lyricist Fred Ebb were tapped to write music for Martin Scorsese's 1977 film, New York, New York, which stars Liza Minnelli and De Niro. When the duo previewed the songs they had written, De Niro thought the title track, which was connected to his character, was too lighthearted. Although Kander and Ebb said they thought De Niro seemed "pompous" in telling them to rewrite the song, they took the criticism to heart and ended up penning their new version of the song in just 45 minutes.
  2. Ferris Bueller's Day Off is my favorite movie of all time, so it's honestly criminal that I've never done a deep dive into some behind-the-scenes moments from the film! John Hughes, known for his teen movies, ended up writing the script in just a few days in order to get a draft finished before the Writers Guild of America went on strike. The script was reportedly so strong that it was barely edited before filming started. The movie is widely considered to be a love letter to Hughes's Chicago hometown and is filled with references to his own upbringing and shots of the city's skyline. In fact, Hughes even gave Ferris the same address as his childhood home, and his bedroom reportedly resembled Hughes's.
  3. If I had to learn about this giraffe mating ritual, then it's only fair that you do too, okay? Unlike other animals, giraffes don't have a set mating season. Instead, they have an estrous cycle, which resembles a human menstrual cycle, except this cycle swaps blood for urine. When a male giraffe approaches a female giraffe, he begins to rub against her, which she takes as a signal to begin peeing. The male giraffe then tastes her pee to see if she's fertile, and thus, the mating ritual begins. A typical giraffe pregnancy lasts for 400–460 days. Male giraffes typically have no role in raising their offspring.
  4. In 2007, Lisa Nowak became the first NASA astronaut to be arrested when she drove across the United States to confront a woman who was dating a fellow astronaut with whom Nowak had also had a relationship. About a decade after graduating from the US Naval Academy, Nowak was selected to be an astronaut at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, where she specialized in robotics. Nowak said she was deeply affected by the 2003 Columbia space shuttle explosion because her best friend, astronaut Laurel Clark, died. Nowak told NASA that her children convinced her to continue on with her space career despite her unease.
  5. Despite what you might believe after watching The Greatest Showman, P.T. Barnum was not a good guy. He had a long history of animal cruelty and was known for mistreating enslaved people and people with disabilities. He even reportedly hated the people who paid money to come see his exhibits. Barnum was allegedly frustrated that people were taking their time during visits to his museum, so he decided to post signs reading "This Way to the Egress" all over the place. He (correctly) believed that most of the visitors wouldn't know that "egress" meant "exit," so when they followed the signs, they ended up unknowingly leaving the entire museum. As a result, many people paid to reenter, bringing home even more money for Barnum.
  6. Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire" is essentially History 101 in song form. The track name-drops 118 historical events from 1949 to 1989, including everything from pivotal moments in the civil rights movement to details from sports and pop culture history. Joel was inspired to write the song after having a conversation with Sean Lennon, who was then in his 20s, while in the recording studio. One of Lennon's friends allegedly said that it was a terrible time to be a young person. Joel, who was about to turn 40, reportedly said that his own younger years hadn't been that easy either.
  7. Coney Island's skyline looked a lot different back in the 1800s. The Brooklyn boardwalk was once home to a 200-foot-tall elephant-shaped hotel! The hotel, known as the Elephantine Colossus, was built in 1885 and contained 31 rooms, a concert hall, and a museum. The elephant's head housed an observatory, and its eyes served as telescopes. The real kicker was that the hotel was built several years before the Statue of Liberty was completed, so the giant elephant was often the first thing immigrants saw when they reached New York. At some point, the hotel was seen as gimmicky and lost most of its clientele. Soon, sex workers began moving in. In 1896, Elephantine Colossus burned down and was never rebuilt.
  8. During Ronald Reagan's 1966 California gubernatorial campaign, he began eating jelly beans in an attempt to curb his pipe-smoking habit. His jelly beans of choice were the Goelitz Mini Jelly Beans from the Herman Goelitz Candy Co. Once the company caught wind of Reagan's love for the treat, they began to send the politician a monthly shipment of candy and even gifted the governor with a custom jelly bean jar. After Reagan's two terms as governor ended, the company continued to send him jelly beans. In 1976, Goelitz debuted their latest creation: the Jelly Belly. Within two years, Reagan's entire jelly bean shipment shifted to include only Jelly Belly jelly beans.
  9. There are two main groups of whales: baleen whales, which include species like the blue whale and the humpback whale; and toothed whales, consisting of orcas, belugas, and sperm whales. While you probably guessed that toothed whales are named as such because they have teeth, baleen whales have baleen plates in their mouths, which help them filter out krill and other food. Toothed whales also have a "melon" in their foreheads. The melon is a mass of tissue that helps with communication and is crucial for echolocation, which they use to find food and to navigate underwater.
  10. In 1997, construction on Disneyland's California Adventure Park was halted after Princess Diana was killed in a limo accident in a Paris tunnel on Aug. 31. California Adventure was supposed to include a ride called Superstar Limo, which involved guests boarding a limo and embarking on a high-speed chase through some of Los Angeles's biggest landmarks in order to get to the Disney offices in time to sign a huge movie contract. Riders also had to evade the paparazzi. Once the ride ended, passengers were encouraged to buy mock tabloids featuring the pictures the "paparazzi" had taken of them. Following Diana's death, Disney knew they could no longer debut the ride. Soon, they began to brainstorm alternative ideas to replace the limo theme.
  11. Donald Gorske, who is known as the ultimate Big Mac fan, has reportedly eaten at least one McDonald's Big Mac every day for the past 50 years. As of May 2022, Gorske believes he has consumed about 32,340 Big Macs. He told Guinness World Records that he typically eats two Big Macs a day, although he revealed that at one point, his daily diet included nine burgers! "May 17, 1972, was the day I got my first car," Gorske said. "I drove to McDonald’s, ordered my first three Big Macs, went in the car, and ate them. And I said right there that I’m gonna probably eat these the rest of my life, and I threw the cartons in the backseat and started counting them from day one." Despite his Big Mac diet, Gorske and his wife say that doctors have given him a clean bill of health.
  12. Although you probably picture Queen Elizabeth II wearing one of her signature colorful skirt suits, her fashion history is actually quite fascinating! Elizabeth was photographed wearing pants only once during her entire reign. In 1970, she was reportedly interested in updating her look, and asked her tailor for a custom pantsuit to wear during her royal tour in Australia. It's safe to assume that Elizabeth wasn't too fond of the outfit, as she was never again seen wearing pants in public. In order to maintain professionalism and avoid any type of fashion mishap, her dress hems were always cut below the knee.
  13. In 1986, Clint Eastwood ran for mayor of Carmel, California, in part because he wanted to overturn the town's strict law regarding ice cream sales. Eastwood announced his intention to run for office in 1985 after he reportedly found the City Council very difficult to work with when he wanted to turn property he owned into office space. He also cited a 1929 law in Carmel that banned the sale of ice cream cones as another reason for his campaign. In April 1986, he defeated incumbent Charlotte Townsend. His first order of business? He removed from office all of the people who supported the ice cream ban, thus allowing the sale of ice cream cones in Carmel for the first time in decades.
  14. Chances are, you read George Orwell's Animal Farm in school. In the novel, a group of animals team up to rebel against the farmer who owns them, only to end up living in a communist dictatorship led by pigs. Although Orwell said that the book was the first time he had successfully been able to blend politics and art, he had a hard time finding a publisher. Several publishing houses turned down the book because they felt uneasy about its political stance. Secker & Warburg ultimately agreed to publish Animal Farm, and the book became a hit and was even used by the CIA as a propaganda tool during the Cold War.
  15. In 1928, Huey Long was elected governor of Louisiana on a promise of helping people who had been neglected by the federal government. He soon had his sights set on Washington and won a Senate seat. But before leaving for DC in 1932, he had the lieutenant governor replaced by two successors who promised to follow Long's commands. In the Senate, he created the “Share Our Wealth” program, which many thought was part of his bid for the presidency. In 1935, Long was assassinated by a political rival. Despite his death, his impact in the state lived on. In 1940, a study showed that rural schoolchildren not only had no idea that Long had been killed but also believed he was president.
  16. The Real Housewives franchise put Bravo on the map for its depiction of the wild and wacky antics of wealthy women around the country, but it originally looked like a much different show! Scott Dunlop, the original producer of the Real Housewives of Orange County, got the idea for the show in 1986 when he moved from Los Angeles to Coto de Caza, one of the world's largest gated communities, located in Orange County, California. Dunlop began to notice that many of his female neighbors spent their days shopping and playing golf while their husbands went to work.
  17. The first meal eaten on the moon included bacon bits, peaches, sugar cookie cubes, and a pineapple-grapefruit beverage. Bacon reportedly had a long history when it came to space travel. It was a staple during the Gemini missions and became a favorite among many astronauts. Despite all of the bacon love, it's since disappeared from space menus. Now the closest thing to bacon is a sausage patty that has to be rehydrated with warm water before being eaten.
  18. Oscar Gamble, a baseball player who spent over 20 years in the major leagues, was known not only for his on-field play but also for his Afro, which sparked quite the controversy. In 1973, Gamble arrived at the Cleveland Indians training camp sporting an Afro. Although many Black basketball players had Afros, the hairstyle wasn't too popular among baseball players. Baseball was often seen as more conservative, and during the 1970s, the Afro was associated with the Black Power movement. Gamble's hair quickly became controversial. "People took one look at that hair and thought I was a bad guy," Gamble said in 1979. "There were some sportswriters who wouldn’t talk to me. They thought I was some kind of militant, with my beard and my hair."
  19. In December 1990, Iben Browning, who claimed that he was a climatologist, predicted that a major earthquake was going to hit the St. Louis area on Dec. 3. In New Madrid, a Missouri town located on a fault line, people began stockpiling supplies, while others left town completely. Browning reportedly used weather patterns to make his predictions, although his exact methods were never publicized. Although scientists didn't vocally deny Browning's claims, it was believed that they didn't support his prediction, since it's impossible to predict an earthquake. The earthquake never happened. In fact, the area has not faced an earthquake at the magnitude Browning predicted in the three decades since.
  20. While kangaroos are known for their hopping abilities (they can jump about 25 feet in one go!), they are unable to go backward because their big feet and long tails prohibit any backward movement. This anatomical hindrance has since been used by their native Australia as a symbol. The kangaroo was reportedly included on the Australian coat of arms to represent the idea that Australia is a nation that is always moving forward.
  21. And finally, Elouise Cobell, who was also known as Yellow Bird Woman, fought for Native Americans to have control over their land and finances. Cobell was born on the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana, where her family did not have running water or electricity. Her great-great-grandfather notably stood up to the US government in the 19th century. When Cobell was 4 years old, her father built a one-room schoolhouse that she attended until she was in high school. Cobell reportedly took notice of her family's complaints about the Bureau of Indian Affairs, an agency that many suspected mismanaged the profits from land and trusts owned by Native Americans.

2023.03.21 22:16 anonaf1542 Any advice? I’m so scared

I keep posting and deleting, I just feel like such a monster. I’m 18 weeks and going in tomorrow for dilation. My circumstances really changed with my ex/baby’s dad.. well he was abusive so I left at the start but it just escalated. he was stalking me/harassing me to the point that I had to block him. Well he retaliated so badly, he has been harassing me and contacting me endlessly, even after I explained to somebody why, he still won’t stop. Well I had scheduled an appt for last week but backed out. I called again today to schedule, and to my surprise got in immediately & insurance is covering almost all of it. I know in my heart that it’s right for me. I think what solidified my decision is the fact that I am more scared of what to tell my ex than anything else. I will miss my baby greatly but know in my heart that I never could have birthed them into this, nor could I do it alone, as despite his insistence on being “involved” he has not helped, supported, or done a thing for me but cause me so much agony. I really wasn’t even happy this whole pregnancy due to him. But by having the baby, I and the baby would be tied to a very abusive man forever. Well now I’m trying to figure out what to say. Because once there’s no baby, there’s no tie, and thus no reason to be contacting me.. in my mind, I guess. And plus it’s the truth. No baby. He’s VERY obsessed with not only me, but “his” baby. He’s only continued making accounts to talk. It’s his tie to control me among other reasons. If he knew it was an abortion, he’d try to hurt me or at the very least blast my business to everybody and I don’t want people to know. But I feel even if I say I lost the baby, he isn’t gonna believe me and will either try to keep contacting me/harassing me 😭 Anybody been here before and know what to say? I know I don’t owe an explanation, but need to at least tell him there’s no baby so he leaves me alone at least eventually.. My plan was to just tell him I am no longer pregnant and block him but I’m not going to be able to handle the harassment, especially not after having to make the hardest decision of my life. I don’t know what to do.

2023.03.21 22:15 muwannajann What trucks do you skate and why? [35YO]

I’ve skated a lot of different trucks over the years. When I started skating, I used Tensors. I stopped using Tensors because everyone I knew hated them, so I tried other brands. I tried Indy and Ace. I like how Indys turn, but I don’t like their weight. I like how Ace turns and grinds, but after a year or so I started missing the stability of Tensors. Note that Ace not only turns better than Indy, but also grinds better, too. There’s almost not break in time with Ace trucks. I did some research and found that Thunder and Venture might be the types of trucks I’m looking for. I heard both brands grind well and offer a more stable ride. I’ll agree both brands offer stability and grind well. I think Ventures grind better while Thunders are lighter and more responsive. Thunders feel like a lighter, less responsive version of Indys while Ventures reminded me a lot of Tensors, which is probably why I’ve liked them the most out of all the trucks I’ve tried since Tensors. However, recently I bought a set of Tensor mag lows for a slick bottom egg, and the lightness of these trucks is insane. They weigh under 10 oz while the lightest Thunders of the same size weigh just over 11 oz and 12.5 oz for Venture. Don’t get me wrong; lightness isn’t my main concern. I prefer Venture over Thunder because they grind better to me, and I attributed that to them being heavier. But Tensor mags grind incredibly well straight away. I also like how low they are. Popping has never felt so easy. They also turn quicker than Ventures. But, with all the pros, there are cons. My 54mm Spitfires are too big, and I get wheelbite just turning sometimes lol. I skated a curb for an hour yesterday, and I can already tell I’m gonna grind through these trucks pretty quickly, if they don’t break before that. I’ve heard these trucks can bend just while doing flatground, and I like flatground. However, I can honestly say I’ve put a lot of time thinking about my trucks and what like/don’t like, and Tensors still are my favorite. I’m gonna have to swap out my wheels for smaller ones (don’t want to sacrifice the lowness) and get used to that. I also might need to change my trucks more regularly. I usually skate a set for a year or two before donating them. However I don’t think that’s going to happen anymore, more like I’ll need to replace them. But what do y’all think? Do you like/dislike Tensors? What are your favorite trucks and why? I’m genuinely curious.

2023.03.21 22:14 Jabufu Thoughts for the devs on patch 2.1.1

Hey folks, I've been playing the patch quite a bit so I thought I'd provide some additional feedback on it now that I've had some time to digest it. I'll also include some ideas for fixes; this is gonna be long and it's impossible to TLDR so if it's not your thing just ignore me.
Some positive feedback:
  1. I want to start with positive feedback because overall I have more constructive criticism, I still love this game and think the update was a good step towards your future vision.
  2. I like the visual updates, solid.
  3. I love the changes to stacking buffs/debuffs, they make a lot more sense thematically and open up a lot of play styles. It's also fun to get huge stacks of Power Up and smash stuff.
  4. I like that boss characters in Fishmen's talk about Duncan and what an asshat he is for stealing their gold, and then on the rare occasions that I get Duncan instead of the Drunk, he gives more gold rewards than the Drunk does because he stole it from them! Some nice lore in action.
  1. I'm getting shorted red keys I earn on Fishmen's Island; not sure if this happens in other regions but it's a big contributing factor to the difficulty of getting pink-tier items that I'll outline below. I wrote a separate bug report post on this one.
  2. Whenever I go to the Regions screen from any other screen, there's a small gray overlay beneath the hero portrait in the top left. This is purely cosmetic but thought I'd note it anyway.
  3. Weird card choices after finishing a fight - they have Japanese characters in them and an action bubble, and can't be chosen. Sometimes this bug forces me to close/reload the app, but I haven't seen this one in a while so I think it's been fixed.
Gear Progression:
  1. In my previous post, I noted that gear progression wasn't overly punishing, but that changes after you hit gear level ~30. For example, on Louis I have 3x Skeleton gear all at level 40, and it's 66,900 gold for a single level, which is probably right around what I'd earn from a single Fishmen's Island clear. This could be fine if all I wanted to do was max my skelly gear, but I want to play with all of the item sets or potentially mix and match when I get pinks across the board, which means I'd have to grind for literally forever to level them all up. I also want to play with Orianna's endgame gear so that's two infinities of grinding to get everything up to speed. Possible fix: add some kind of event or special level that has better gold rewards; make an option to sell keys or equips for gold.
  2. It's also taking forever to get pink tier items. I made my last post 23 days ago and have been grinding every day, and I'm now the proud owner of 3 pink items (with another one or two on the way soon if I get lucky with drops). I understand that it'll go faster now that I have a few pinks as I can combine those gold and red tier items into other types, but it's still going super super slow. I'd probably be a lot further along if not for the red key bug I mentioned above, no idea how many keys I lost to it. Possible fix: periodic event where you get bonus keys; bonus gem event that runs for a short time; make the bounties reset on a weekly or monthly basis.
  3. The fancy chests with S-tier items are fools' gold unless you're a big-spending whale. It's a 0.5% chance for an S-tier, and even if you hit it before opening 50 it gives you an orange S-tier item - so you'd need another 5 of them to level it to red (using other items for the 3rd slot in the combine) and then another 6 to level it to pink - so it's basically pointless to invest gems into these chests because I will never get a pink out of it. Assuming you never hit the 0.5% chance, the math works out like this: 12 items required for pink x 50 opens per item = 600 opens. 2,680 gems required per 10x open divided by 14,000 = 5.22 opens per $100. 600 opens required divided by 5.22 opens = 114.94 gem purchases. $100 cost per 14k gems x 114.94 = $11,494 to get a single S-tier pink, which is literally insane. Possible fix: jack up the S-tier find % considerably; special event where you have bonus chance to find S-tier items; small % chance to find an S-tier item from bosses.
  4. Gem grind is super slow. Since my last post 23 days ago I finally managed to get the 2,680 gems for the fancy chest for Louis, and once again I didn't get one of the signature items, so it'll be about another 23 days before I can try again if it wasn't pointless per #3. Possible fix: small % chance to win gems from bosses; bonus gem event that runs for a short time; make the bounties reset on a weekly or monthly basis; a special rotating deal in the store that lets you buy gems at a discount; drop the prices on gems.
  5. I noticed that if you hit the 5% chance of getting an orange in the rare chest, it resets the counter - that's just mean, I've only hit this 3x, but of those three it reset counters that were at 2 and 3. It's such a small chance can't you let us have our bonus orange gear without resetting the counter?
  6. Some final thoughts on fixes for gear progression: adding monthly quests that are hard to complete but have bigger bonuses would help; adding achievements with rewards (e.g. "inflict a monster with 10x Rust," "Get power up >50," "Beat the final boss of [region]" etc.
Other thoughts on itemization:
  1. Lack of synergy: now that I've finally gotten some pink-tier items I'm disappointed in the abilities they confer. I'm not 100% certain of what the cards look like at Level 3 since I only have 1 pink item for three different sets, so it's possible that this could blunt some of my criticism, but I'll lay them out based on the info I have.
    1. Healer's Light - this is the best of the pink-tier cards I have access to; more action points is one of the two strongest abilities in the game, but the drawback that you have to be at full hp to use them means you are fighting against your own itemization. E.g., the gear they are on heals you 10/25/50% at the end of a fight which is a strong ability, but if you're trying to stay at full health to use your Healer's Light cards this ability won't do anything most of the time. Additionally, the other strongest ability is Power Up (probably the strongest in the game), and Louis has lots of cards that let you spend hp to power up; it seems good because you can spend hp to power up and then recover it from the gear, but the gear bonus doesn't kick in until the fight is over so you'll invalidate however many Healer's Light are in your deck unless you use them before any -hp cards. With just 3 card hands this can get really frustrating to juggle, and also there aren't a lot of healing cards (Bandages is the only one I think, and it'll never take you to full hp) so if you get an unlucky draw and take damage you might need several fights for your healer gear to get you back to full and activate Healer's Light again. Possible fix: on upgrade, give it a heal that happens before the HP check for the action points. This might be OP but would give you some leeway to stay at full hp.
    2. Grudge - I'm assuming that each level will increase the multiple from 2x to 3x and 4x, which seems pretty solid for a hyper-attacking build (3x gnoll gear). 2x isn't that good though so I'd never mix and match a Gnoll item among some other gear.
    3. Skeleton - this seems fine but perhaps a little underpowered. I mostly grind Fishmen's island so it's annoying when it hits an enemy with Thorns before you can get a shield on. Possible fix: when skeleton hits an enemy it should give you a tally towards activating your special, right now it only gives you 2 fury. Just a tiny buff but necessary IMO when you see the massive differential in power of Healer's Light vs. Skelly.
  2. At my current level of itemization, there's one clear best set, and it's the one gives you an action point for every 2 greens you spend (skeleton on Louis, and spider on Ori). This makes grinding kinda boring; I always use those two sets because 1) leveling up other sets to get to 35+ would cost a ton of gold and 2) I don't even have full reds for the other sets yet. I've tried mixing and matching sets with my pinks here and there but it makes the runes suck so it's not really worth it.
A couple of random suggestions:
  1. In the store, an "open all" button. I frequently grind a bunch of Fishmen's and then open chests later, so opening 15 regular chests is a pain. It's not that much of a pain but it'd be nice. Slay the Spire has this with a click toggle.
  2. Can you add an option to see the upgrade paths for cards? There are lots of cards that I never take because they look bad (e.g., the rare 0-cost spell for Ori that uses all your mana and 30% of hp to cast a random spell) but might be good or at least useful in certain situations once they're upgraded.
  3. When I am playing and set down my phone to do something, the game won't go inactive and yield to the lock screen, it yields to some intermediate screen where I need to finger drag to open it back up. The other day I left my phone sitting there for a while and it drained my battery, can you make it so it goes inactive and to the lock screen? I've never seen this behavior in any other app, seems like a security issue too because someone could access my phone without having to unlock it.
Some thoughts on Louis post-update:
  1. My main criticism with Louis post-update is that he's super inconsistent. Part of this is that I am using full skeleton gear so I need some decent greens to get my cycle going, but I'm sure that if I used a different set I'd face the same issue where if I didn't get a certain card archetype then my deck would be deficient. There are really only three builds that are good for Louis: Power Up decks, Shield Bash + Aegis decks, and Focus Slash decks. Power Up decks are kind of fraught because if you don't get Power Potion or Battle Inspiration and have to use the ones that don't give an action point back, it can be difficult to get the combo running because you don't have enough action points to build fury and turn it into Power Up stacks in one turn. This is because...
  2. Exile is a real problem for Louis. You can build a deck with lots of the attack that gives you an extra action point or the attack that gives you +1 Fury for each card played that turn (sorry I forget the names of the cards) that will shred any/every normal encounter, and then get your faced smashed in by the Drunk or the Captain because once you run through your deck once you're stuck with 3 Slash, a Diagonal Slash, and maybe 1-2 other common/uncommon attacks that will never overcome the Captain's heals even if you manage to kill off both tentacles.
  3. Louis is way underpowered compared to Ori. She doesn't even need to pick a card from Chaos packs to dominate Fishmen's, you could probably win just by upgrading the base deck a few times though it wouldn't be that fun to try. (Achievement for winning without taking any cards?) Lots of reasons why:
    1. Bleed is terrible compared to Burning stacks. Burning is super OP and should be toned down a bit, but Bleed needs to be improved because it barely does any damage. The only reason to put Bleed in your deck is if you upgrade the AOE bleed for Blind, and even then I'm only using a single copy.
    2. Louis has a lot of single target vs. Ori who has an enormous amount of AOE available. Simply put: if you get a Supernova+, you win. If you get a Meteor (which you will no doubt upgrade to Meteor+), you win. The only single card that = "you win" for Louis is Battle Inspiration (if you get it early), otherwise all his cards require a combo with another card to be good. Ori has way more viable win conditions.
    3. Exile! Almost none of Ori's good cards have exile, but tons of Louis' do. I haven't been able to try the Exile gear set for Ori b.c I don't have enough reds, so maybe it's super good, but I find myself casting a single Supernova 2-3x per match (or a Fireball, they're both so powerful that functionally the OPness of the Burning stacks doesn't matter) when on Louis you could burn all your good attacks on the first pass through the deck.
    4. Duping is easier on Ori. With more win conditions, it's way easier to draw one from the Chaos pack or after the first battle, upgrade it, and start duping. It always feels sad to not have anything good to dupe.
  4. I finally made Star Slash deck after about a dozen tries! I didn't list it as a viable archetype because it's hard to get 5 copies even if you get it in your Chaos pack (and if you have 4, you might not beat the Captain because of Exile) but when it hits it SMASHES.
Some thoughts on Ori:
  1. She's OP lol, once you get your gear to ~35 it's pretty hard to lose with her unless you're bad. I don't remember the last time I failed to complete Fishmen's with Ori.
  2. I think she could actually benefit from Exile on some more cards, but please don't go overboard! This would make her just a little bit harder so you'd have tougher choices on what to play and when.

That's it, if you made it this far thanks for reading. I promised I would tag u/EquipmentHead146 to make sure he sees it - I hope this feedback is useful to your team!

2023.03.21 22:12 wereplant Bungie, killing a character isn't a twist when you do it EVERY SEASON (spoilers)

Bungie's method of killing off characters is lazy, uninspired writing.
I legitimately don't care at all about deaths at this point, but what makes it so much worse is that THEY MAKE NO SENSE.
tl:dr the above is already the tldr, but the conclusion part below is probably the most important bits. I titled each section so you don't have to actually read the whole thing.

So many deaths (and not-deaths) (and re-deaths) (but wait, it's Taniks with a steel chair)

Today's mission straight up kills off Amanda after they've been using her as a major part of the plot for the last few years. And for what? "Oh no, we messed up, guess I'll just die." There was zero buildup. Literally anyone could've died there. But guess what, it was a "noble suicide." Nobody's ever done that before...
Rohan didn't have access to paracausal powers, and yet him sacrificing himself destroyed the mast when they explicitly said that conventional munitions wouldn't hurt it? There's a lovely, touching scene of Osiris and Nimbus AFTER the campaign, but there's zero buildup and zero stakes.
Rasputin committed suicide because... idfk? We literally copied AN ENTIRE HUMAN BEING AND THEN DELETED HIM. Oh, Clovis is just fine, but Rasputin? No, he committed suicide, so he's gone gone. They didn't think to... idk... back him up daily? It feels like this story was written by someone who thinks deleting "My Computer" will literally destroy the entire system.
Plunder and Haunted did the other thing, where Bungie brings dead characters back to life because they killed them too early and still need them for story, right Eramis? Oh, but we left her as a popsicle sculpture the whole time because why not? Obviously dead? Good job, vanguard. But yeah, all the characters that were brought back in Haunted died again anyways because they were just "nightmares." Great character progression for people who don't exist, aside from Ghaul, who's back for the umpteenth time.
Osiris whole story is essentially "oh, he's still alive! But now he's dead... but we were wrong! But now he's Savathun, so he's probably dead! But he's not dead! But he might still be dead because he's in a coma! But now he's actually not dead!" I guess he takes after Crow, where Uldren "dies" in TTK, but isn't dead, then dies, but gets rezzed into a guardian. He takes after his sister, too, who died but wasn't actually dead, as well as all those awoken tech witches, who were with Mara Sov when she "died" and also "died," but were just chilling in the ascendant plane for like... years?
We get a whole alliance with the Cabal in season of the risen, but oh no! Crow fucking murders a Psion general who is Caiatl's closest aid.
Of course, we've got Savathun, who has the ONLY twist death, in that we didn't learn about her death until AFTER she got a ghost. But she still might come back because Immaru is still alive...
Oh, and we can't forget that Nezarec has been a lore character for a very long time, only for him to get a handful of secret voice lines, talk a little during the raid, and then be the boss of the raid. He literally doesn't get any time to exist before he got killed.
Speaking of disciples, there's Rhulk, who we didn't even know about until the actual fucking raid came out. It's like the damn leviathan raids where we just show up and Calus gets to play game show and tell us who we're fighting today. There's no buildup, regardless of how great the character is.
Then we've got Lakshmi in season of the splicer. Everything about her death is dumb. Like why did Savathun even want to summon the vex into the last city like that? What was the point of Lakshmi turning into the giga-racist? And don't forget, Lakshmi was EXTREMELY old and smart. She was a literal genius and one of the few people who could consistently utilize the vex prediction device the FWC use to prepare for future events. She survived the entire Dark Ages just to agree to a plan to "summon the vex into the city to get rid of the fallen while also being under active attack from the vex."
Oh, btw, Asher's back after they soft killed him and Sloane. And in case you forgot, Slaone sent NINE guardians into the strike for Savathun's Song, and ALL OF THEM DIED, including Taeko, a prominent praxic warlock from the lore. The hive literally just laughed at them and turned them into purple gatorade for the grand purpose of... a strike.
So many other offscreen deaths as well. May or may not have survived... might be brought back... we'll never know.

That's a lot of deaths (and don't forget Cayde)

Most of the above is from the last year and some change of content, where each season's cinematic and audio lore takes up less than an hour of time, and the yearly content takes up only slightly more than that.
Of course, we can't forget that what started off the big deaths was poor old Cayde. His death was used as a last ditch effort to get people interested in coming back to Forsaken when Destiny was literal months away from committing die itself. Bungie was shouting from the rooftops "WE KILLED CAYDE" just to get people to come back. Cayde died in the first five minutes of Forsaken as a way to give the ghost something to talk about while the guardian just slays out.

Conclusion part (your heroic death is even more meaningless than your life)

None of these deaths will actually affect anything. Cayde still talks to us in strikes. We'll still haveAmanda's lines in like half of all the strikes. We still have warsat public events, despite Rasputin destroying all of them. The dreaming city is still time-fucked. There's still nightmares on the moon.
What that means is no one will even know that those characters are dead. With last year's seasons gone, no one will know that Rasputin no longer exists. No one will know that Saint fucked a hive god Savathun took over Osiris's body. No one will know anything about any of the deaths, because none of them made any difference.
For all these deaths, none of them were for anything real. Nothing was gained.
Destiny's writers are trying to convince us that the stakes are high by using deaths as instant gratification situations. They're popping a death every season to remind us "hey, did you know that destiny is not a lighthearted game, but is actually about the end of humanity and all life in the universe?"

The #1 rule of good fiction writing is "show, don't tell."

With destiny, we're being told how to feel. Be sad because everyone else is randomly saying they're sad Rohan died. Be sad because Osiris is dead/comatose. But what did they accomplish? What were they for? Rohan stood in front of the computer? And now he doesn't? Osiris was off doing his own thing, now he's in bed? Rasputin was already doing nothing, but now he's extra doing nothing?
If you played God of War Ragnarok, the death of Brok felt real. It affected everyone. They grieved. They had an actual funeral. The entire post-game was bereft of that person as well as the one most affected by it. I was sad while playing the post-game because everywhere those characters were supposed to be, they weren't there anymore.
The writers showed you what the world was like without those characters. They showed you that the world was a colder, less caring place without them. They showed you the price of war. Most importantly, they showed you why it was so crucial that our protagonists grow as characters.

In fairness to Bungie (they can and have done better)

Rise of Iron is probably my favorite Destiny expansion. They completely remade the cosmodrome to reflect what had happened. They remade strikes and the music for those strikes to reflect what happened.
What I loved more than anything was the ending though. SIVA had seemed intense from the changes that happened, but things didn't really seem dire. You're told the Iron Lords were killed by SIVA. Big whoop. Why aren't we using it for our own purposes? It seems cool. I got cool SIVA guns now.
When you go to the heart of SIVA, it looks like an eldritch flesh pit abomination. You see the corpses of the Iron Lords dangling from the ceiling, then suddenly hear a scream as a body is yanked away into the fleshlike SIVA. A massive SIVA monster drops down, and you realize that SIVA had never killed the Iron Lords. It had kept them alive to be used as tools. THAT is why SIVA is dangerous. That is why we can't use it. That is why it is so important that the guardian destroy SIVA at the heart.
Bungie showed us why SIVA was still a threat when we'd just killed a hive god. Not only that, they showed us why the Fallen were still a threat when we'd continuously genocided them out of existence. Most amazingly... nobody randomly died.
Please, Bungie, bring back good writing. Stop crutching on random deaths.

2023.03.21 22:10 KPKennelly229 13m old very selective about what he wants to eat.

I am confident this is a phase we're just in but I am wondering if anyone has any insights/tips on how to move through it. Here are the details..
When my son was (est) 9m old he ate anything and everything we gave him to try. Obviously there were foods he liked and prefered over others but he was always willing to try the various foods we gave him.
Now 13m old he has become very adamant about the foods he will eat, more or less pigeon holeing us into making him the same foods for every meal. Breakfast is always Cheerios, a banana, and some of a puree pouch. Lunch is always toast (we have some variety to the toppings, but limited to peanut butter, almond butter, jelly, and avocado), plain yogurt and fruit (though lately he's been turning his nose up to anything that isn't apple sauce). Dinner is always elbow noodles with meatballs & marinara sauce, buttered toast, and a puree pouch.
Yesterday for dinner we tried a different noodle, a Bonza (made from chickpeas) noodle in hopes to get some extra vegetables in him - everything else was the same (sauce, meatballs, buttered toast), He threw it all on the floor.
There's been times I've tried to hide veggies in his pasta sauce, he notices somehow and again throws it on the floor.
At 9m old he loves eggs with cheese and broccoli, now he refused to even touch it. He loved french toast, now spits it out. I have so many examples of foods he used to love and eat well that he won't touch now.
He eats well when it's something he likes/is on his prefered menu I mentioned above. But when we try to give him anything outside of his menu it turns into a fight and he eats significantly less then he normally would. And we know he's hungry as we have him on a pretty consistent eating/milk schedule/routine.
Also, as a side note, we've periodically changed his puree pouches on him as he's gotten older, transitioning through the various food stages. He has no issues with the change in pouches.
How do we get through this? Do we just stick to his menu? Do we keep trying new things in hopes that he eats/it doesn't end up on the floor?
Frankly, the food ending up on the floor stresses me out as I worry he's going to be hungry (mostly when it happens during dinner and I don't want him to go to bed hungry).
Thank you in advance for any insight, tips!
