UK Ebike law opinions.

2023.06.03 13:36 Ambitious-Ninja-5214 UK Ebike law opinions.

So, a little background. I have anxiety problems which basically prevent me from doing a lot of things. Due to not leaving the house or being able to do much of anything, I got pretty out of shape. To the point where I couldn't even handle a short bike ride. I got an ebike thinking it'd help me get out, get some exercise, and generally improve my quality of life and capabilities. It's been amazing for me. I've gone from not leaving the house at all, to going on daily bike rides, sometimes multiple times a day. I'd have a hard time being behind the wheel of a car due to the anxiety, to the point where it could be dangerous. So, an ebike, that I can use on the pavement, and take on the road if I have to is ideal for my situation. However, after a couple of weeks, I've run into some issues. Basically, it's the speed limit law. I can understand the idea of placing restrictions on ebikes, but I think the govt have gone overboard in true nanny state fashion. Restricting the motor to 250w, ok I can understand that. No throttle/pedal assist only, OK, fair enough. But the assist speed limit of 15mph? That's where I see an issue. The bike is pretty heavy, especially when it's carrying my shopping etc, and with the shape I'm in, pushing the bike past that 15mph on the flats is pretty much impossible. The problem that arises is in siruations where I have no choice but to take it on the road due to lack of pavements or cycle lanes. I have traffic whizzing past me because I can't keep up. And roundabouts? I have no experience driving so I don't know what speeds people maintain on roundabouts, but it seems clear to me I'd need that extra speed to safely negotiate them. If my current top speed isn't enough to safely negotiate them, then that's obviously an issue. As well as that, the speed limit makes zero sense to me considering regular cyclists can zoom around at whatever speed they like, within reason of course. So yeah, I was wondering what you guys think about it. It's not just me thinking this law is arbitrary, illogical, and actually dangerous, is it?

2023.06.03 12:22 charlietheunicorn9 Considering 2019 Ioniq PHEV or 2019 Model 3 LR?

As the title suggests, what would you go for with the following details? I am hyperaware that I am posting in a Tesla subreddit :D Wondering if anyone has had similar considerations when purchasing their vehicles?

CONTEXT:

Had the 2016 Ioniq PHEV briefly and plugged that in every night. Really enjoyed driving that for the range and having a fresh 29 miles of EV every day. I was always "anti EV" (mainly because of range anxiety), then I test drove the Model 3 LR and really enjoyed the power, the minimal design, but probably need some getting used to for that tablet interface. I prefer the exterior look of the Ioniq more, just cause the Model 3 is literally everywhere where I live, but prefer the interior of the Model 3.
- Live in a climate that rarely ever drops below 40F
- Work from home on my online business
- home has solar
- Usual trips are to the grocery store, gym, and family's house, all within 10 miles radius
- will share with the lady, who would take the car to work 1-2x per week, probably around 15-mile radius
- Occasionally max ~60-mile round trip 1x / month to try new foods
- I always think we would go camping or take longer road trips to national parks and car camp (but in reality happens only once a year), or take the 2 bikes out to go bike riding
- 110V chargers in the garage, but not opposed to adding a L2 charger
- Own a '13 Subaru BRZ as my "fun" car. Mpg is not great (avg ~24mpg). I intend to keep it
- I've tried changing the oil on the 2016 Ioniq before and it was a PITA, NEVER AGAIN. I would definitely be taking that into the shop for oil changes, which is a time cost. For that reason, a pro is not having much maintenance to do for the Model 3.

GOAL:

- Preferred budget Ideally ~$30K or lower. Aware that the Model 3 is priced above this, but keeping in mind other costs like insurance + the $4500 federal tax credit
- relatively practical vehicle, and save on gas/money over time
- intend to keep long-term, maybe 10 years or so
- prefer to be able to fit 2 bikes (or larger equipment) occasionally
So the ultimate question is: which might you recommend?
I enjoyed test-driving them both, I know it's comparing apples and oranges a bit, that's why the $10K difference is substantial. Is the Tesla worth $10K more based on these goals/context? Or another way to reframe that question: would the $10K difference be better invested elsewhere? TIA!

THE CARS:

2019 Hyundai Ioniq PHEV 2019 Tesla Model 3 Long Range
Price (used) $22,000 $32,000
Mileage 26K 41K
Range 29 miles (EV); ~650 miles total ~240-280 (310 EPA estimate)

2023.06.03 12:14 Crazy-Memory-6569 Toyota Tacoma, the Phenomenon Continues

The latest version of Toyota Tacoma is a completely redesigned one. Its quirky and brawny aura is retained only that its dimensions are expanded to accommodate bigger loading capacity. At first glance, it can be ascertained that the Tacoma these days are bigger and also said to be better than its predecessors.
Toyota Tacoma come in two choices - the 2WD and 4WD. The two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive models are available in all body styles. Both are sophisticated and powerful. However, between the two, Tacoma's 4x4 is getting more sales than the former. Toyota revealed that 40 percent of Tahoma's sold are 4x4 trucks. The latter feature a two-speed transfer case, optional locking rear differential and a heavy duty chassis. Toyota Tacoma is said to challenge the trucks made by GM, Ford and DCX.
Toyota Tacoma is ruggedly designed to give comfort and remarkable performance while conquering the road. Its double-wishbone type suspension and air shocks provide a smooth ride like that of passenger cars.
On the road, Tahoma can deliver a first rate all-round drive ability. It is also manufactured with powerful Toyota Tacoma performance parts to complement its sturdy built. The rear step bumper, front tow hook, and its 6-foot cargo bed are also made lighter. They are made from durable composite materials to support its purpose and goal as a real truck. V6 Tacoma can tow up to 5,000 pounds. Alternatively, its four-cylinder models can tow up to 3,500 pounds.
Tacoma has 2 standard airbags, ABS and brake assist and anchor points for child restraint seats. The four-cylinder Tacoma engine produces 164 horsepower and features 16 valves, DOHC, and variable valve timing with intelligence.
In essence,2024 tacoma accounts for nearly 10 percent of US Toyota sales. Moreover, the driving factor of Tacoma is the celebrated Toyota build quality and reliability. History reiterates that with Toyota you will lose a lot less bucks

2023.06.03 12:09 Alphaone75 Choosing a bike 2000 USD

Choosing a bike 2000 USD
Hi everyone,
I would like to ask your help and suggestions to help to narrow down options for which bike I should buy in Europe. I am starting to plan for a long biketouring (maybe bikepacking) trip I am dreaming of doing in one or two years from now in South America. That would include gravel roads and I would hope, most of the time. I want to buy it now so I can do short trips to try it out during that time.
I am not an expert, that’s why I would appreciate your help. I have been looking into gear for about a couple of years, highly inspired by Iohan and the amazing trips he took before leaving us. I have also gone thru a couple of editions of the publications of Aleen Denham. I think I should strive for what he (or everyone ?) calls an Off-Road Plus Bike.
I have two bikes: one city bike that is very heavy and not at all good for this trip and a early 90’s Scott Yecora. I am not sure what that frame is made of but I really like it because it’s light. But again I don’t think this is the right bike because I always felt the size is not right for me, I have to ride bringing my chest way too low and I would have to remove the suspension in the front I would say.
Budget about 2000 USD, unless I really need to go further up to get more for the buck . There are just a few things I am certain of:
  • 29 inch tubeless tires
  • Carbon drive
If I was more confident about my strengh and weight I think I would go with a fat bike.
I guess the only thing above that really narrows it down is the type of bike and mostly the carbon drive.
Anyway, I would appreciate any help I can get at this point. Thank you all in advance and a big shout for all of you that share your trips and experiences here. For someone who has never done anything similar, I have to say I admire incredibly what some of you have done or are doing!

Finally Driving My Dream Car
10 year old me dream car to be precise. 😂 I will never forget riding in a friend’s parent’s one of these in the 90s and being completely blown away
Has been a very comfortable and reliable highway cruiser since last year for a long commute … 25mpg … I promised my family I will get a newer car when this one craps out we’ll see when that is 😅
One of my favorite things about driving an older car is the FM radio antenna raising up when you turn the car on 😂😂😂

2023.06.03 11:14 blue01sky Update and experiences Luba, personal error analysis

Update and experiences Luba, personal error analysis
My ticket content to Mammotion support Ladies and Gentlemen After the last two updates to the current version 1.8.2.220, the following problems occur with my Luba 5000. 1. If existing mowing limits are re-edited, the saved limit does not match the limit that is automatically followed afterwards. Luba goes at least about 20 cm beyond it or adds non-existing surfaces. Depending on the set cutting angle, the limit crossing shifts. For areas that were created before the update, the border crossing is okay. 2. The positioning is now more sensitive, so Luba now also stops in places where he used to mow continuously, since the precision display very often jumps to bad or then remains on the "bad" status, although all other displays jumped back to "fine" a long time ago. 3. The Luba then seems to switch itself off as a result of these long pauses in mowing. This means that no area to be mowed is finished. You have to manually reactivate Luba and bring it to the charging station. Since my property is on a slope, the shutdown creates another problem. After switching off, it now rolls away from its holding position in an undefined manner! As a result, yesterday it rolled down a steep embankment for me, resulting in further scratches and grooves on the housing and damaged plants. 4. If Luba has to drive to the charging station during mowing without an intermediate shutdown because intermediate charging is necessary for the active task, then the mowing task is done because Luba "forgot" the processing status when docking. So I have a mown and an unmown piece in each area. When restarting the mowing task, I cannot influence the starting point and it starts again at the same place. It then drives diagonally through the area once and then starts over from the same point. During the screenshot of all image sections of the app, Luba did not mow! The view of the sky was clear. Picture with Luba on the meadow. 5. Despite an overlap of 15 cm or a mowing width of 25 cm, poorly mowed strips of grass remain standing. Tracks are also completely forgotten?! (Picture) 6. The tuning of the 4-wheel drive should be refined. Since one or 2 wheels often do not turn when correcting the route, the lawn or ground is torn up. (see video) As a result, it can also happen that a stick or bush trunk gets between the dumper and the housing, since Luba shifts sideways due to the "one-sided" path correction! The same occurs when correcting slopes, Luba also slips here! I then had to free Luba manually. 7. If I want to create a new corridor to a neighboring area, then I should delete the existing one first. However, this does not work even though the mower is on it. The path is not visible in the app and cannot be selected? 8. The approach and positioning of the Liba in front of the charging station should be stored variably in the algorithm. The currently fixed donut position ensures the destruction of the lawn! (Picture) How do you intend to remedy this as quickly as possible, since my Luba is not doing its job or is only doing it to a limited extent under supervision and repeated intervention?
Best regards

2023.06.03 11:11 Celestialsmoothie28 [Lyrics] Soul Car

Life's ocean I'm tired of swimming
Eternity I wish to climb your mountain
Oblivion can I smoke your trees
Infinity will you make love to me?
Death how will our marriage me?
Sorry reality but I'm forever phony
In life I've been running
My feet is aching
Tired but got limited responsibilities
Escapism is my specialty
For ten years I fell in love with fantasy
Now on reality I'm in a relationship with misery
Funny how I crave for company
Talking to myself is therapy
Stagnant but my flower is beautiful in a strange way
I will never bloom on life's freeway
I crashed so many times
No tow trucks for the mind
My hearts transmission is always slipping
No Lucas oil motivation
So many self help auto zones
But giving up so fast I'm prone
Even though I'm full on gas
I wanna be shaw shank free at last
Eternity will you build me a new engine?
Better tires I'm dreaming
My life battery will always need a jump
When will it ever be enough?
Trying to tell the Earth's mechanics
I can't stand it
Dealerships not understanding
Payments I'm still making
Reality pulling me over sometimes
Tickets flooding my mind
Soul impounded
Spirit I can't pay for it
Loans too expensive
Working hard for a better running vehicle I'm too apprehensive
What if my headlight bulbs blow out?
I rather tap out
Still I turn on the ignition
My keys know I lack motivation
My rims are bent but I'm still driving
Somehow brights keep showing
My brakes keep working
Even though my pads is thining
Hazard lights came on but been off for some time
Steering wheel telling me I'm fine
Air conditioner and my heater keep blowing
Feeling okay when I'm reversing
But when I switch gears
I ride in so much fear
Even though I got insurance
Lack the assurance
Life's license never suspended
Road test i never ace it
Smog test always comes
Wondering when my vehicle's spirit will ever succumb?
Windshield cracked feeling numb
Getting it repaired seems dumb
At least the window regulators roll down
Blessed I can at least make it to the next town
Alternator and starter keeps functioning
Current car is dead still it's running
Life's seat I rather not feel
Jesus Christ please take the wheel

2023.06.03 11:10 No-Gap-3306 A very oblivious lifted truck nearly hurt my friends and totally my car

A very oblivious lifted truck nearly hurt my friends and totally my car
Pictures attached in order are truck that almost hit me (exact make/model/modifications), my car (no i did not leave those tire marks) and a truck the same size as my car (for scale)
It happened a few weeks ago but still somewhat haunts me, so I thought I'd post here. I was driving to my HS's graduation with some of my friends in the car on a 4 lane stroad (fuck stroads), and I get stuck in 30ish MPH, very heavy traffic. Looking to change lanes so I can make my exit, I slowly indicate and move to change lanes into the perfectly clear middle lane, when a SEMA Style F-250 hard accelerates to change lanes into me. At this point I'm nearly fully in my lane when the F-250 is about to slam into me, and given how loud the traffic was, I knew honking wouldn't deter him. I ended up just flooring the gas to get back into my lane and get away from him, which leads me to miss my exit and be late. In addition to all this, my passenger noted that throughout the entire interaction, the sunglasses wearing (it was cloudy) redneck driving the truck didn't see me at all.
Initially, my family blamed me for buying such a small car (2018 Toyota C-HR, picture shown is my exact car), but after some basic research I found my car is roughly the same length, width and height as a 1996 Toyota Truck with a 3 inch lift kit. So when you think about it, not really that small. Yet even though all of these things, a F-250 still nearly hit me ON THE PASSENGER SIDE where I had two people I care about far more than myself on, then just continued driving. And didn't even see my car throughout any of it. This could've seriously injured both my passengers and totaled my shit, but since in my state changing lanes without indicating is technically legal, he didn't commit any real crimes. If anything, I could be the one getting prosecuted for flooring it to move into the other lane away from him. This has led my friends to feel less safe riding in my car, and my fear of big trucks to grow even more. My vintage car owning best friend is used to this as well, as his 1983 Volkswagen is hit almost daily. I'm a person who loves working on my car, going to classic car shows and driving the backroads, but even I despise the modern culture and civil engineering of "own a car or perish," and the existence of the Chevy Suburban entirely. Don't even get me started on why bigger cars are less safe for even the passengers of said big cars. Its 4am and I'm angry at alot of things right now.
TLDR: My Toyota C-HR was nearly reduced to atoms by a lifted truck and now my passengers don't feel safe ☹️

2023.06.03 10:50 Illustrious-Oil4293 Continuation of the story.

Hey guys. Here is a continuation of what I was writing. Sorry for the formatting, just typing it out in my notes and copy and pasting here.
Our story begins with our friend Jackie Chan and soon to be an unknowingly hero of the people as he journeys through a Bavarian jungle towing with him a group of people, a scholar and exhibitionists who would seek out a treasure to gain fame and attention from the world, either in academia or media attention, to announce to the world and peers that they broke through the many traps that the castle says to contain. Trudging through this weary jungle comes along the castle they seek, our friend Jackie, a lean individual, unassuming and gentle hearted who is deceptively athletic and studies and practices martial arts, continues his journey into the castle. "The mad king Ludwig would invite many guest into the castle but would fall victim to many of its deadly traps" says the scholar "Rude..." an exhibitionist joins in saying. "That's why his name was not Lovable Ludwig or good neighbor of Bavaria - Huh, stand back..." says Jackie. Jackie stops dead in his tracks with his group to follow, well enough light pours into the castle that would lead unbeknownst treasure seekers to rummage the castle recklessly to fall victim to its many traps, with nothing a stir and everything quiet, Jackie finds this to be too eerie and finds in their way a wire, though invisible to those who enter the castle, not invisible to Jackie as his fine tuned senses crafted by his self-discipline and with a sensible sharp mind are at work, lowers himself with aerosol can in hand and makes visible the invisible wire. "What are the odds that these traps still-..." remarks one of the men. Jackie motions over to the exhibitionist and grabbed his hat to drop on the wire, suddenly two walls collide into each other this time only in succeeding in killing a hat. Loud clicking noises and rumblings of the walls suggest that the mechanism for the trap is resetting and moments later the two walls come apart leaving the invisible wire intact waiting for its next victim. The exhibitionist stares in disbelief by the sudden closing and opening wall of death and has his jaw left gaped opened by his astonishment that he nearly just died was closed by Jackie and motions forward leaving an air of unspoken reason that following Jackie's lead may keep them alive. Following hallways left and right leading to a room with pictographs and decorations of stone statues, against the far wall has a human skull that Jackie handles to find a handle that releases the door. Looks of triumph that he beat the castles traps and looks of shock and excitement on the group, Jackie has found the treasure room. As the door rises revealing the treasure room, light pours into the room and Jackie leads forward to light torches along the wall and once was a dimly lit room is now glowing brilliantly with gold, gold coins, golden assortments from goblets to swords, gems and expensive stones covering the floor and piled high. "Ludwig's lost treasure..." remarks the scholar. "I'm sure that the booty is booby-trapped so don't-...." begins Jackie to everyone. With blind enthusiasm, the would be still alive exhibitionist runs towards the treasure picking up a golden sword hilted in rubies, sapphires and emeralds, then the room and door begin to convulse violently, another trap! As quickly as the room begins to rumble and the door jerks downward threatening to close them inside, Jackie kicks up a spear into the air and with a spin through the air, kicks it toward the closing door jamming it open as Jackie shouts "Go! Go! Go!". Motioning everyone out, everyone in a panic stricken run, all begin towards the door until Jackie finds himself running into the door when the spear snaps finding himself alone as the group escaped. Moments later an arrow shoots across Jackie's face and launches himself backwards as arrows after arrows begin ejecting themselves from the walls that would kill any person or persons who gets this far; yelping out the words "bad day! bad day! bad day!" Staggering backwards and leaping into the air, above these arrows, ducking more, spinning mid jump over treasures, in a leap lands over a golden shield emblazoned with some chicken scratch, begins to deflect arrows left and right cornering Jackie. Jackie in danger of never being seen again, looks up, a hole in the wall, Jackie wall jumps into a sliding tunnel and in a panic places the shield under himself to ride the shield down the trail and finally bursting out of the castle and within view the group is spotted to have also exited the castle, with Jackie landing and coming to a stop on the shield sliding on the ground, "Snowboarding works better with snow" says Jackie, relieved for everyone to have made it out alive. From a distance, strange men observing Jackie with binoculars, the seemingly men to appear to be the leaders issuing an order to their men. "Follow him..." "Follow him..."
Jackie returns from his trip to Bavaria to his home in San Francisco. Jackie resides in his uncle's two story antique shop, "Uncle's Rare Finds". In his room we carry on as Jackie blow by blow, ebbs and flows, as he strikes a dummy. In his studio room for his training displays a number of photographs, taken at events or jobs he was hired on to take people on exhibitions, there in all his photographs is a man who never has trouble finding his smile in all of them either as a leader or competitor. Jackie with another day of training in, is summoned by his uncle with the clattering of a bell. Jackie's uncle is a fairly old man, in his signature bright yellow vest, glasses, gray standing hair and his garlic and mung bean smell, that originates by his consumption of garlic and mung beans that he always believes is good for you. From the second story calls out to his uncle, "What is it Uncle?". "Come, give Uncle a hug", Jackie jumps over the railing and effortlessly twist in mid air to land and give uncle a hug, SMACK, Jackie was just struck over the head by Uncle's strong fingers that he uses to scold. "Ow!" Jackie yelps. "You did not make coffee this morning, coffee is the only thing keeping Uncle's ancient heart beating, you want dead uncle? No? Then you make coffee" "Ok" replies Jackie "One more thing" uncle begins again, "You received phone call from the University, they want you to translate parchments" "Ok" replies Jackie "One more thing" Uncle continues before Jackie begins his work, Uncle examines the newly brought in golden shield, talking out loud with his thoughts of the ancient chicken scratch on the shield with an odd encrusted pewter center with a rooster emblazoned on it, "I cannot translate inscriptions, very old writing, I must reference my journals." "Ok" replies Jackie "One more thing" Uncle continues "This is Jade, your niece, she will live with you for a year? Ok?" Jackie with no second thought on his list of instructions from Uncle, "ok" Taken back, Jackie exclaims "I have a niece?" Now discovering the child in plain view by the entrance as she wears a scowl under her black hair that spikes downwards with her arms folded. Uncle explains, "Your cousin Shin's girl from Hong Kong, Jade is not behaving well there, doing poorly in school, your cousin thinks she will do better with you" "Nobody asked me" exclaims Jackie. "Did not want to bother you" Uncle coolly states, then sends Jackie to tackle his new instructions. Jackie nervously chuckles, "Hello, I am Jackie". Jade, stiff as a statue, continues her scowling and looks with contempt for being in this dibilated antique shop. "No English?" Jackie tries another greeting, "Ne Ho Ma-...." Three men enters the shop. Jackie welcomes the new customers and begins exercising his retail sales abilities, as Jackie also helps Uncle in his Rare Finds shop as a salesman. "You're Jackie Chan, the archeologist?" Asks one of the three men. "Oh, I dabble in the study of past civilizations" replies Jackie. "Well, we are aware that you recently dabbled a shield from a Bavarian Castle, our extremely wealthy employer is interested in purchasing the shield"
Jackie seeing this is not the regular customer Uncle's Rare Finds usually receives, wearing a 70's style white suit, all red blazing combed back slick hair and seems to be having trouble clearing his sinuses and seems a bit on edge. His two companions, just as unremarkable and out of the ordinary among usual customers, one quite tall and burly, sporting a wrinkled black jacket, red tie and white shirt with dress shoes that could do with some polishing, Jackie faintly smells alcohol from where he stood and the other, short but stands tall with his bright orange sunglasses and leather coat suggest he may kick you up side along the head at the wrong moment.
Jackie with great suspicions, "I'm sorry, I have already donated that piece to the university" "Really...?" The man in red and white nods to the others behind him to send a small message, pokes out his wild swinging hand and pokes out a finger to drive an antique to the floor but unable to shoot straight misses with a hurried "whoops", tries again, sending two antiques rolling to the floor! Jackie thoroughly shocked, dives across the floor coming to a roll right under the falling antiques and catches them on his back - the shorter of the men with a smirk on his face sends flying an antique, but in a flash Jackie sends off a cushion from a nearby seat, throwing the two in hand and with a bounce with the cushion, Jackie runs forward to catch all three antiques in a snap, antiques in hand, puts them down safely and takes a seat with a smile. Looks of horror and awestruck coves over the three, as well as Jade, whose left speechless of his Uncle's ability, just stood standing in place. "It would be in your family's best interest to undonate the shield, Mr. Chan... places hand over Jades head by this time tomorrow", the three exit without another word. Uncle walks in "did they buy anything?" "No" Jackie answers "You are a terrible salesman!" "Watch the girl and hide the shield" Jackie instructs. "Where am I going to hide a big shield? sputters on where did I put the shield?" Uncle continues on as Jackie exited to follow the men and unknown to Uncle, so did Jade.
Jackie exiting Uncle's Rare Finds finding the vehicle leaving, quick and light on his feet, leaps for the fire escape of the building, leaping gracefully and the mastery of his body to do so, clambers onto balconies and shop signs onto a roof catching up to the vehicle. Running along side the vehicle, Jackie peers in, the man in red and white is hunched over and takes a great deep inhale, crushed powder in forms of lines on a plate is visible to Jackie. The wrinkled out suit man is also clambering with something in hand, Jackie is catching up as the vehicle comes to a stop, running to the ledge, down gutter pipes, SNAP, the pipes snatch free from the wall sending Jackie down BANG. Wrinkled out suit man chokes on the contents of his flask and sputters, finding his breath and the man in red and white being seen hiding his plate and all three wordless, Jackie continues innocently, "That will buff right out" pointing at the ding he has caused as if it's the only problem there. Angry, the gas petal is floored with Jackie and gutter still on top, coming onto and off side walks sending people wildly running in all directions to come to a sudden stop at a fenced playground. The three exit to introduce themselves more physically to Jackie, launches themselves at him. Jackie pulls back from attack, dishes one of his own with the gutter sending them away, Jackie jumps and rolls into the sunroof of the window, the men, SLAMMED by the doors that Jackie kicks open, ejects himself from the vehicle, musters up his strength and leaps over the fench, rolls to a stop, sitting upright begins to mock the men, "Nya Nya!" The three men remain to be unknown to Jackie, had not even realized they were watching him in Bavaria nor did he know that they're extremely wealthy employer has equipped them with military grade electric rods, these men were The Enforcers. The Enforcers leap forward with their electrified rods, melting the fence and sending Jackie backwards. As agile Jackie is, he swerves, ducks, rotates and spins, comes to a semi truck and takes the windshield wipers with him, coming to a landing with a flourish of the wipers in a stance that says I'm ready. With a chuckle of the Enforcers, Tap! Tap! Jackie has struck two over the hands, disarming them and kicked another away. Running off to the still occupied playground, Jackie yells out "No more playtime, Go! Go!". Children running and the enforcers come around, on the right slow going, Jackie kicks a tether ball right around to the man in the wrinkled out suit face and almost lazily falls over. Jackie looks up and finds another lunging from a nearby jungle gym, Jackie kicks and with a loud CRACK, finding a broken nose "that's where I put my drugs!". The third, short yet strong, comes to spare with Jackie, jabbing in and out, showing signs that he learned martial arts is swept backwards onto a rocking horse and sits down dazed and defeated. The other two continues still, after Jackie, they are led to a swing set, "Oh hey! - what the --" Jackie has tangled them together in the swings, stuck together now Jackie jumps onto a jungle gym with continually readiness. "Wow!" Says one "Let's get out of here" says another. The enforcers make a run for it, watching them run, leaps down to discover Jade has followed him, taken aback, "Jade?" We have another man appear from behind and with a weapon that released a gas, renders Jackie unconscious.
"Now he's coming too" remarks the men inside the van Jackie finds himself in, is saying. Jackie opens his eyes, "Aaahhh! Agustus Black!" Jackie opens his eyes and finds a familiar face with the others left in confusion, "hmmm?" Jackie continues "What are you doing here? Ow, what am I doing here?" "I'm afraid its official business, Jackie. Replies Black. "Where have you been? I don't hear from you for six years, BOOM, you're in San Francisco saving me from those thugs" "Jackie, I knocked you out" explains Black. Jackie outraged, the van stops to a screech, Jackie exits. "Why did you do that?" Jackie continues. "Jackie--" Black beckons "I thought we were friends" "We are, Jackie." Replies Black. "I'm sorry but this location must be kept a secret. "Oh, yes, I can see this is some very special garbage, maybe I will see you in another six years" "Jackie--" Black stammers Excuse me, while I call a cab" "Jackie--" Black calls out. Jackie turns to a lone telephone booth amongst the garbage. Enters. Jackie dials, "Oh?" With a sudden jerk, the telephone booth is swallowed by the wall and in a rush Jackie screaming for dear life, the booth is fast tracked along a corridor to a halt and let's out a sigh of relief but without warning it drops. Screaming once again trying to keep himself centered, DING! the booth landed, doors open with Jackie plopping out. "Tried to warn you" Black states. "How did you get down here?" "The stairs... Follow me." "Jackie, Welcome to Section 13." Leading Jackie in, Black shows him around. "I thought you were with interpol" "Even with them I was shepherding this agency in secret" answers Black. "You're a spy?... are they spies too?" "Law Enforcement, Jackie, Elite Special Forces." "So why give me the big tour?" Asks Jackie. "We are aware you've recently acquired an artifact in Bavaria" explains Black. "Why does everyone know that?" Jackie continues, "You are the second one to ask about the shield today" "I was afraid of that" Black leads Jackie to a terminal. "Secrion 13 was founded to investigate large scale international crimes - crimes which often can be traced back to The Dark Hand, a criminal syndicate. The Dark Hand has connections to nearly all criminal activity and their leader is this man pulls up image of a man in striking white long blonde hair that is tied back in a nice Italian suit Valmont. Today you met his cronies that Valmont sends on personal errands around town. Finn, who is Irish and believes disco will never die, another only known as Ratso then there is Chow, as you seen, Chow has some martial arts training. The three known as the enforcers but won't think twice to push over an elderly lady if it meant completing their orders.

2023.06.03 09:33 Stopyourshenanigans How can I best keep this friendship non-toxic?

A dear friend (18F) of mine (19M) shared a ride with a co-worker (30M) whom I don't fully trust. She accepted only because it would save her about an hour of public transport.
When she first told me that he would drive her to her destination (he lives in that town), I said something along the lines of "errr, okay". I would have probably rode with him too if I was her, but it still irritated me a little. She noticed I wasn't happy, and told me she would take the train instead if it bothered me. At that point, I felt really toxic. We're very good friends, but I don't think I should be able to decide whom she should share a ride with. I told her it's not okay for me to forbid her anything like that. She responded that she cares about my opinion and she'd rather take the train than make me mad. Of course I told her I wasn't mad and she should take the car if she wants to.
I've been thinking about it a lot, and I can't get over the fact that I could essentially tell her not to do something, and she wouldn't do it. I don't want to have that power, because I don't think it belongs into a healthy friendship.
How can I get rid of this "power" without losing her trust? I obviously want her to care about my opinion, but not to the degree where I can decide for her.

2023.06.03 09:27 Expensive_Thought_40 AITA for ruining vacation because my cat suddenly died?

(English Is my secondary language and I am not from the US)
Me [27F], my Boyfriend [34M] and two of our friends [27 F and 32 M] went on a couples vacation about 2 hours away from our hometown. It was supposed to be a week long stay, from Saturday to saturday.
On Wednesday, so right after 3 days, by BF recieved a tearful call from his mom, my cat sitter, that she found one of my cats dead on the floor. She seemed absolutely healthy and happy the night before and was excited to recieve visitors. We were absolutely devastated, I loved her so much.
Regardless to say, the vacation was over for me. Even if I couldn't do anything to help her live anymore, I couldn't leave her in my apartment for the next days. I called my parents to arrange her funeral.
Now, we told our friends, who were right there when I received the news, that they have two options: they could stay or come with us. The problem is, that I was the only one with a car and we booked a residence at a rather remote location, with the next town being 15 minutes away by car and the bus arriving every two hours. That is also what they said so they started packing. They were not happy.
On the ride home (my BF insisted on driving, so I could process my grief), 27F complained about her lost vacation. My BF answered something neutral but I could hear he was pissed at her complaining.
Now that my cat was buried and a few days have passed I recall the last days. And I want to know, if I was the AH for ruining our vacation? I am still grieving and unhappy with our friends lack of empathy, but I guess it was just a cat for them, which is fine. But I am reconsidering my friendship with them. But maybe they were right to be angry, I don't know anymore.
Edit: I offered my friends compensation so they could rent a car the town over, but they did not want to drive on their own, so they refused. It would have been possible to rent the car and return it back in our hometown as the rental service operates nationwide.

2023.06.03 09:26 letmevent98 My (25F) boyfriend (26M) wants space on his own terms

TLDR: My (25F) boyfriend (26M) wants space but on his own terms.
Backstory to what led us here: Last night, me and boyfriend of 2 years were talking about kids. He made a comment along the lines saying how lucky I am to be 2 cultures/ethnicities because my Mum side of the family (including my parents) that me & him are living with don’t have good genes and habits. I agree with the unhealthy habits of eating junk food but I still took that as an insult and got offended.
My boyfriend then got angry at me for being butt-hurt and that I don’t understand him and that I need to accept that these are real facts while we were eating Wendy’s.
The next day, I dropped him off to work as his car is broken so we’re sharing mines. I went for a walk with a friend nearby and decided to go Maccas to get something to eat and thought I would get something for him as well. He loves pancakes and coffee. I text him saying what time his lunch as I’m down the road. He called me and didn’t sound too happy. When I arrived he said thank you then kissed me. I picked up him once he finished. During our ride home I asked if he could please turn down the volume on his phone while watching videos because I like to listen to music when I drive. He completely went off at me saying to leave him alone! He was yelling at me for taking him food without him asking and that it was unhealthy for a good 5 minutes. I said I can drop him off to his mother house after he showers so we’re not in each other face. 3 hours later.. he tries to kiss me and I responded “I need space”. He got so angry and started throwing things into his bag then said to drop him off to the gym and to not pick him up. I asked how would he get home and he ignored me.
Why is it when I give him the same treatment he gives me.. it’s all my fault? So confused and little bit over it.

2023.06.03 09:24 basylica Uhaul lesbian - timeline question

Ok so this has been bugging me for awhile and hoping ALR historians might know..
Im unclear where amber was living pre-casey (california or oklahoma?) and how she arrived on caseys doorstep in arizona.
Then she moved from arizona to virgina with krystle, how did she physically get there?
I know dusty and her grandparents came to get amber from krystle. I also know she was “seriously traumatized” by being told she needed to buy a 2nd seat when she flew in teen years.
So ive been scratching my head wondering in particular how she got from az to va. Thats a LONG drive and we all know car rides cause swelleeeeeen.
I cant recall ever seeing how she ended up at the doorsteps of earlier gorlfriends.
