2023.06.06 18:29 WaffleHouseNeedsWiFi Sages of sobriety, I need some advice. 😔🙏🏻

It's been months since I was wordlessly cut out from an immediate family member's life and though I've attempted to reach out like, "Hey! Whatcha been up to?" ... there's been no contact.
I saw her once within the past few months and it was simply her stopping by absolutely hammered. Alarmed that she drove (quietly, no pissing her off!), I immediately made her a plate of leftovers that were heavy on the potatoes (lol). I offered her a "mixed drink" which was really just a sparkling water in a highball glass with ice (lol), and she thankfully ate and drank the refills. Then I dimmed the room to put a movie on, closed the windows, made a comfy spot on the couch, turned the AC down, and got her a blanket so we could "have a cozy movie party!" ... and as I'd hoped, it put her to sleep instantly. (No driving, lady, omg!)
So ... I just got a call from one of her friends that she's saying she wants to die and that she's doing it via alcohol. Her friend says she hasn't eaten in days and she keeps driving to get cheap vodka from the shop a few miles down the road. She won't take my calls, won't answer the door, and has kicked everyone out who's tried to intervene. Her friend doesn't really like me all that much, but she put that aside to reach out with a "mayday" call.
In case it matters, I live in Georgia.
I'm certain that I need to act, but I don't know how to do this.
I know some of y'all have seen/been around something like this (either personally or through work) and before I make a move (because I'm going to) I want to know all the potential mistakes I might make and avoid them.
Do I:
  1. Get a wellness check?
  2. Go over and let myself in to talk?
  3. Something else?
I'm sorry for my ignorance. I have to act, but I don't want to do this without some solid advice behind me.
What say ye, wizened members? Do you have any input before I embark?

2023.06.06 18:28 DumbButAlsoStupid Has the color Mid Blue in Red Heart's Soft yarn been discontinued?

Hi everyone!
I've been searching for 3-4 skeins of Red Heart Soft in the color Mid Blue to finish an afghan I started a few months ago.
I got three skeins of it in a mystery box back in December, loved the color, and decided to knit my first afghan with it. I'm about halfway done, and out of yarn.
I can find the color on several websites (Yarnspirations, Amazon, Walmart, etc.) but they all say Out of Stock. If anyone can tell me if it's been discontinued, and if anyone knows where I can find more, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks!

2023.06.06 18:27 ImprovementLife4195 [actives] looking for advice on drying thicc bois

First time grower here. First harvest of GTs was wonderful and had a pretty solid canopy in each of my two grow bags. My second harvest in bag A only had a few fruits but two of them were monsters, weighing around 50 grams each. I dried them like I did the first batch- on a screen under a box fan. It took them about a week to fully dry. Bag B had a weak second harvest but harvest 3 brought me four cannons weighing about 45 grams each. Is there a better way to dry them then the screen/box fan method?
Note: I realized I should have gotten a dehydrator late into drying my first harvest but figured I would play this one out and make the switch before my next attempt. Not sure if these would fit in one anyway.
Side question: would leaving fruits drying under a fan for a week cause any potency reduction?

2023.06.06 18:27 Accomplished_Bit6769 Not sure how much longer I can do this (long post)

(24F) I have struggled with depression from an early age, but up until some point my parents would not take it seriously. I got very little acknowledgement for my feelings and was mostly encouraged to "just go for a walk" or "smile at yourself in the mirror until you feel happy".
I started therapy fall 2020. This happened because I reached the breaking point after a painful breakup preceeded by 2 years of almost complete isolation and unrecognised depression during uni. While everyone else was out there making friends, I was completely alone in a foreign country and placed all my happiness into this one person who then left me. I think my parents saw my state and realised I need help. Back then I thought this would be as bad as I would ever feel.
I have been in therapy ever since. It's helped me figure out my childhood trauma, understand that I need to set boundaries and in general has given me hope. I would still go through waves of heavy depression and what I now know was hypomania, but did not think that my situation was sufficient for getting psychiatric help.
In fall 2021 I reached an ever lower low, at which point my parents finally encouraged me to talk to a psychiatrist. I was struggling for over 6 months after that because I got diagnosed with minor depression and was given a very low dosage of medication which pretty much did nothing. Finally, after another incredibly painful breakup I started getting suicidal thoughts and self harming. At this point I found another psychiatrist and got diagnosed with bipolar 2.
After that, everything went uphill. I finally got hope and felt amazing. I moved to a city I love, managed to make friends that truly got my back and are here for me. Other than crippling anxiety which I struggle with regularly, I had no symptoms of depression for a long time. This entire academic year I was so proud of myself for finishing one university degree and starting another, excelling at it, finally meeting my people and overall becoming so much stronger than I was before.
Breakups (and relationships in general) have always been my trigger and I knew that, but a couple of months ago I met a guy with whom I felt like everything was different. I was very careful and took it slow, watched out for the red flags and didn't find any (all my previous relationships have been very toxic). Long story short, I chose to end it now because he had to leave the country and is not sure when he is coming back.
The past week has been hell for me. No matter how much I've worked on myself, no matter how many therapy sessions I've had and how much I thought I've learned, I am severely depressed. I started harming myself again and having suicidal thought (I won't actually kill myself but it calms me down to know that I can always just switch this all off if it gets to that poiint). The only way I can function through the day is if I take a bunch of xanax, otherwise I'll just fall apart.
On the surface my life is great. I almost finished my masters degree, live with my best friends, starting my dream job in August. My parents have grown to be much more supportive over the years too. But none of this matters. Everything I've achieved and all the healing I've done just feels like a lie I told myself. It's like there is this darkness within me, I keep running away from it but it always catches up eventually. I'm tired of waking up in the morning and not knowing how the fuck ill get through the day. I reach out for support all the time, but I feel absolutely alone. Its like I see the life happening in front of me but I'm just in some sort of glass box that I do not know how to get out of. I don't know how to fight anymore, I don't think I have hope that I will ever be happy in a romantic relationship. And most of all I'm just scared because I was sure this feeling will never come back again, or at least that it will be much weaker than before now that I'm taking my meds. If I believed in that sort of thing I'd probably say I'm cursed or something.
I guess I'm just looking for support here. Maybe someone will relate and share a new perspective on this situation. I have no idea what to do and how to deal with the fact that this darkness will always be inside me and will keep resurfacing.

2023.06.06 18:27 Throwaway75246 I (37M) accidentally stole my friend's (36M) girl (31F).

We've been friends for 3-4 years.
To preface this, he is one of my closest friends we go out basically every weekend together, sometimes in a group and sometimes just us. This past weekend we meet up at a local brewery and as we are walking in he mentions that there is a girl he met on Hinge here as well. I think nothing of it thinking that maybe she was also with friends, but she wasn't it was just her, him, and me. Also, he isn't exactly starving for female attention, he gets hit on almost every time we hang out and this was only their 2nd date.
We sat at the bar and they were next to each other so as time goes on, I'm kind of cut out of the conversation. Not on purpose but it started to bug me that I was a hard 3rd wheel here as I couldn't hear what they were talking about so I couldn't add to the conversation. I hadn't eaten that day and my mind tends to wander when I get a little tipsy so I started thinking about the last girl I dated and that was our first date spot and how I missed her, so I went outside for a few minutes to get in the sun and gather my thoughts. Eventually some other people showed up and we started talking but I still felt like I was being blocked out of conversation and I decided I was going to leave and go somewhere else. I knew we had a different group coming out soon so I was going to meet up with them.
I left and went to the other bar. Soon, my friend and his date showed up there because he saw me there with a different friend and said they were going to get something to eat up the road and he would tell me when the other group showed up. I said okay. The other group finally showed up so I joined them. I went to the bar to get another beer and she comes up to me and starts talking. I'm horrible when it comes to talking to women, unless I'm not interested or I don't think I have a shot because they're with a friend or something like that, then we get along great. Anyway, we started talking and it started to become very clear that she was hitting on me. I told her a few times that this wasn't right because she was there with my friend, she persisted. And after a while, my friend got upset and left. I ended up taking her home because she was too drunk to drive, and nothing happened. I did sleep at her place but only because I didn't want to risk driving again as I had been drinking as well.
The next day she texted him and he was mad and told her not to talk to him anymore and she needs to figure out what she wants. I waited a couple of days to let him cool off as some other friends told me he was pissed off at me as well. I texted him yesterday and apologized and said I was not trying to flirt with her, she came up to me, she came there with him and it wasn't right , and if me talking to her was going to affect our friendship then I would stop talking to her immediately. It's been 24 hours and I haven't heard back from him.
What can I do to mend our friendship? Should I try to contact him again or wait it out a little longer? I don't want to lose a solid friendship over this.
TLDR. My friend brought a girl to hang out with us on their 2nd date and she ended up hitting on me and it pissed him off. What can I do to mend our friendship? Should I try to contact him again or wait it out a little longer?

2023.06.06 18:27 ThatKermitGuy A small rant (I am not anti-LGBTQ+)

I am forced in school to watch videos of gay men dancing shirtless and people talking about sex in graphic detail. They show similar videos to PRIMARY school kids. I'm not hating on LGBTQ+ people, just wanted to get this out that the stuff that's being promoted to young children is extremely inappropriate. I also was shown a table that had different generations on it and the rate that they were straight, gay, bi, trans etc. and I saw Gen Alpha on there. I looked into this, and discovered that schools are forcing young children to watch inappropriate content that describe in graphic detail sex and openly discourage anybody not believing in LGBTQ+. I've also heard many cases where school force people to be LGBTQ+ to raise their demographic, almost like a rubbish company, trying to tick a box. I don't think that kids are necessarily able to make these types of decisions for themselves, but believe it can be advertised/promoted in a way that isn't inappropriate. Again, I'm not hating on LGBTQ+, but also it's being as if we are forced to believe in it. Yes I support everyone, but I don't necessarily believe in LGBTQ+. This is the same for somebody who for example shares a different religion.
I DO NOT HATE/DISRESPECT ANYONE, JUST WANTED TO GET THIS OUT

2023.06.06 18:27 Extreme_existance 47" Vizo Model E4701-A0

We have this TV since it was new. It is a a smart tv. Worked great. We put it in a home 6 months ago used as Airbnb.
6 months ago we had to remove it from the airbnb home, because after the last people who rented the home for 2 weeks, caused it where it cannot locate the WIFI. We done a hard reset, everything it says to do online to find it. It does not have ethernet jack. We even put it next to the wifi router with no luck.
What can be wrong with this? Why can't this tv find the wireless WIFI as before? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. We want to use it in our spare room now.

2023.06.06 18:27 willysrat [WTS] [USA-MT] [H] Focal Utopia OG [W] Paypal

https://imgur.com/a/5UfBQEZ
I'm selling my set of OG Utopia. They are in good used condition. They have a couple of small scratches/marks on the cups and collars on the headband and there is a little wear on the top of the headband. I have taken pictures of the specific areas that I have found marks so please look carefully at them. I apologize for the few bits of dust showing. I keep them very clean but the piano black finish makes dust specs pop out in pics like crazy. The scratch on the one cup and the marks on the other are much less apparent in person than they are in the photos. They come with the stock XLR cable and a spare set of suede pads (not sure of the brand). The box is in decent shape but does have some scrapes as seen in the pics. I also have the original outer box. I don't know how many hours are on them but they function and sound perfect. I love them but I need to pair down my collection a bit. I wish I could keep everything but it's not realistic to do so.
My asking price of $1800 includes paypal and shipping in CONUS. No international sales on this one sorry. I'd really appreciate F&F and will discount the fees if used.
I have a 5 foot balanced Forza Noir Hybrid cable that I would sell with them for an additional $125 if you are interested. Pics of the cable available upon request.

2023.06.06 18:27 leavingamarc HM Land Registry Meaning for House Purchase

I am looking to buy a property and have limited it down to a couple, with my solicitor looking over the paperwork of one.
The other has a HM Land Registry exerpt that states the following:
A Conveyance on Sale of the land comprised in this title and that tinted pink on the filed plan dated 27 June 1884 made between (1) PERSON A of PLACE A, (Vendor) and (2) PERSON B of PLACE B, (Purchaser) contains a covenant by the Purchaser of which the following is a copy:The Purchaser hereby covenants with the Vendor that he the Purchaser his heirs or assigns will not at any time use or suffer to be used the said piece of land or any building at any time standing thereon for any trade or manufacture AND will not erect or suffer to be erected on the said piece of land any building unless the same be a lodge or other building to be used or occupied with the dwellinghouse standing upon the said piece of land and that no second dwellinghouse shall be erected upon the said piece of land AND FURTHER will not at any time erect or suffer to be erected any stable or coachhouse on that part of the said piece of land which lies between the points marked respectively E B-C F on the said plan the said points E and F being in a line with the boundary fence on the south west side of the property on the opposite side of the ROAD Road aforesaid known as "NAME" And that until the tithe rent charge shall be legally reapportioned the Purchaser his heirs or assigns shall pay to the Vendor his heirs or assigns the yearly sum of 5s. in respect of such tithe rent charge AND that the Purchaser his heirs or assigns will maintain a good and sufficient close fence between the points marked A and B and between the points marked B and C on the said plan.
The documents come with a map that has a large area shaded in pink and the property that I'm looking to buy with a red outline inside the larger area (but not shaded pink). Areas in pink on the document contain a couple of buildings.
My questions are: 1. Is the owner of the property (potentially me) the Vendor in this situation? And if so, does that mean that the land owner who owned the house years ago sold the land/freehold of that land to other parties?
  1. The land outlined by the point references affects a small corner of the house and mostly affects another building next door. Would I be prevented from building anything within that or is it just the people who own the land in pink?
  2. If the restrictions are on the purchasers and not me as the vendoowner, are they allowed to build or do anything without consent?
  3. The fact that the title references the sold land and covenants, would the owner of the house hold the freehold for that land?
Sorry, I know this is a weird one, I will get a solicitor to look over, but if there are concerns, I'd rather not waste my time and instead, go for the other property.
Thanks

2023.06.06 18:26 RyanOskey229 3 business ideas if you have no budget

A rising trend among younger generations has emerged, particularly millennials and Gen Z.
It’s the increased humanization, or anthropomorphism, of pets.
This generation often sees their pets not just as animals, but as members of their families. With this mindset, they are increasingly focused on their pets' overall well-being, as-well as seeking high-quality, organic, and sustainably sourced pet food and other wellness products and services.
Millenials and Gen Z’s commitment to social and environmental causes further bolsters their willingness to pay more for products and services that align with these principles.
This cultural shift presents a multitude of opportunities for businesses in the Animal Wellness sector, particularly those that can meet these evolving consumer demands.
Additionally, society's growing awareness of animal emotions and cognitive abilities, further augmented by the humanization of pets, has led to extraordinary growth in the sustainable wellness industry for animals.
The demand for premium pet care products and services, which ensure not just physical, but also mental and emotional well-being of pets, is growing at an unprecedented rate. As research in animal psychology continues to enhance our understanding of animal emotions and cognition, the need for pet care products and services that address these aspects is also on the rise.
The convergence of these factors makes the present moment an ideal time for businesses to tap into this expanding market.
Heavily researched business ideas for people with no budget are sent out every Sunday right here, but all points are included below for Reddit discussion as well.

Business Idea #1

Name: Pet Nurturer
Industry: Sustainable Wellness for Animals
Problem: With the growing interest in sustainable and holistic wellness for pets, there is a gap in the market for an easily accessible, centralized platform offering tailored advice, resources, and products related to sustainable pet care and wellness. It can be a challenge for pet owners to identify appropriate resources, vetted products, and connect with experts who share a similar sustainable and wellness-focused ethos. There is also a lack of platforms that utilize AI to personalize pet wellness recommendations.
Solution: Pet Nurturer is a digital platform that offers personalized, AI-driven sustainable wellness recommendations for pets. Utilizing GPT-4 AI, the platform learns about each pet's specific needs, preferences, and health history to curate tailored advice, educational content, and product recommendations. This could include advice on diet, exercise, mental health, preventive care, and even guidance on how to deal with common pet health issues using sustainable practices.
Competitive Advantage: Unlike existing platforms, Pet Nurturer's unique selling proposition is its AI-driven personalization, focus on sustainability, and aggregation of resources. By harnessing the power of GPT-4, Pet Nurturer can offer a far more personalized and interactive user experience than competitors. It will focus on curating sustainably sourced and manufactured pet products, vetted by a team of animal wellness experts, distinguishing itself as a truly eco-friendly pet wellness platform.
Monetization: Pet Nurturer can generate revenue through several channels. Firstly, a freemium model could be introduced where basic features are free, and premium features are unlocked with a subscription. Secondly, affiliate marketing can be a source of income - when users purchase recommended products through the platform, Pet Nurturer earns a commission. Finally, Pet Nurturer could collaborate with sustainable pet product brands for sponsored listings and advertisements on the platform.
Viral Social Media Strategy: Pet Nurturer's social media strategy will leverage engaging, shareable content to drive brand awareness and customer acquisition. User-generated content will be at the forefront of this strategy - encouraging customers to share their pet wellness journey, transformations, and successes using a unique hashtag. Regular contests and challenges can be launched with sustainable pet product giveaways to boost engagement and shares. Additionally, educational content on pet wellness, sustainability, and product highlights can be shared in a visually appealing manner to further engage followers.

Business Idea #2

Name: Eco-PetBox
Industry: Sustainable Wellness for Animals
Problem: Despite the growing trend of pet humanization and the increasing awareness of sustainability, there's a lack of convenient, curated solutions that allow pet owners to access sustainable and wellness-focused products. Pet owners often have to navigate multiple online stores or physical outlets to find quality, eco-friendly products, which is time-consuming and often confusing.
Solution: Eco-PetBox is a subscription-based service that curates and delivers boxes filled with eco-friendly, wellness-focused pet products right to your doorstep. Each box is tailored to the pet's type (dog, cat, etc.), size, and any specific dietary or wellness needs. The boxes can include sustainable pet food and treats, toys, health supplements, grooming supplies, and even wellness accessories like calming pet beds or anxiety wraps.
Competitive Advantage: What sets Eco-PetBox apart from other pet subscription services is its focus on sustainable and wellness-oriented products. Every product in the box is vetted for its eco-friendliness and contribution to pet wellness. The convenience of having a curated selection of products delivered to their doorstep each month will appeal to busy pet owners who care about both their pet's health and the environment.
Monetization: Eco-PetBox operates on a subscription model, with customers paying a monthly fee for their custom box of pet products. There can also be premium subscription options that offer additional benefits, such as access to expert advice, larger product selection, or faster delivery. Another potential source of revenue could be partnerships with sustainable pet product companies that wish to feature their products in the box.
Viral Social Media Strategy: To spread awareness and create a buzz around Eco-PetBox, a strong social media campaign centered around unboxing experiences can be initiated. Encouraging subscribers to share their unboxing experiences, review products, and showcase their pets enjoying the products can create authentic and engaging content. Special promotions, giveaways, and contests can also be launched to encourage sharing and tagging. Sharing stories highlighting the sustainable impact of the products in the box can resonate with eco-conscious pet owners and further drive shares and engagement.

Business Idea #3

Name: PetFit Tracker
Industry: Sustainable Wellness for Animals, Pet Tech
Problem: As pet obesity becomes a growing issue worldwide, pet owners are looking for ways to monitor and improve their pets' health and fitness. However, solutions for pet fitness tracking are still quite limited, especially for non-dog pets.
Solution: PetFit Tracker is a wearable pet fitness tracker designed for all types of pets – not just dogs. The device tracks various data such as physical activity, sleep patterns, calories burned, and more. The data is synced with a user-friendly mobile app where pet owners can analyze their pets' health and fitness progress, set goals, and receive personalized recommendations for improving their pets' wellness.
Competitive Advantage: PetFit Tracker's main competitive advantage lies in its inclusivity for all types of pets, making it stand out in a market heavily focused on dogs. Furthermore, integrating the device with the latest AI technology, such as the GPT-4 API, can provide unique personalized insights for pet owners based on their pets' data. For instance, the AI could analyze a pet’s activity patterns and provide customized exercise or diet recommendations, detect any unusual patterns that might signal a health issue, or even provide reminders for preventative care measures.
Monetization: The primary revenue stream would be the sale of the PetFit Tracker devices. An additional recurring revenue model could be established through a premium subscription for the mobile app, which offers advanced features and more in-depth insights. Collaborations with pet wellness brands for product recommendations could provide affiliate marketing income.
Viral Social Media Strategy: User-generated content will play a big role in the social media strategy. Pet owners could be encouraged to share their pets' fitness achievements, fun moments caught by the tracker, or transformations powered by the device. These stories can be shared on the company's social media platforms, creating an engaging community of health-conscious pet owners. Additionally, collaborations with pet influencers and partnerships with animal welfare organizations could further increase brand visibility and credibility.

Any idea how much is cost to replace?
Was driving home and somehow managed to run over a large stick in the road.. the stick found it’s way into my lower bumper, breaking it.
Any idea on what it might cost to replace this piece? I can’t imagine it’s too much, since it’s just the lower grill. I was only able to find replacements for the side grills, not this part.
Thanks in advance!

Utilizing GPT-4 AI, the platform learns about each pet's specific needs, preferences, and health history to curate tailored advice, educational content, and product recommendations. This could include advice on diet, exercise, mental health, preventive care, and even guidance on how to deal with common pet health issues using sustainable practices.
Competitive Advantage: Unlike existing platforms, Pet Nurturer's unique selling proposition is its AI-driven personalization, focus on sustainability, and aggregation of resources. By harnessing the power of GPT-4, Pet Nurturer can offer a far more personalized and interactive user experience than competitors. It will focus on curating sustainably sourced and manufactured pet products, vetted by a team of animal wellness experts, distinguishing itself as a truly eco-friendly pet wellness platform.
Monetization: Pet Nurturer can generate revenue through several channels. Firstly, a freemium model could be introduced where basic features are free, and premium features are unlocked with a subscription. Secondly, affiliate marketing can be a source of income - when users purchase recommended products through the platform, Pet Nurturer earns a commission. Finally, Pet Nurturer could collaborate with sustainable pet product brands for sponsored listings and advertisements on the platform.
Viral Social Media Strategy: Pet Nurturer's social media strategy will leverage engaging, shareable content to drive brand awareness and customer acquisition. User-generated content will be at the forefront of this strategy - encouraging customers to share their pet wellness journey, transformations, and successes using a unique hashtag. Regular contests and challenges can be launched with sustainable pet product giveaways to boost engagement and shares. Additionally, educational content on pet wellness, sustainability, and product highlights can be shared in a visually appealing manner to further engage followers.

Business Idea #2

Name: Eco-PetBox
Industry: Sustainable Wellness for Animals
Problem: Despite the growing trend of pet humanization and the increasing awareness of sustainability, there's a lack of convenient, curated solutions that allow pet owners to access sustainable and wellness-focused products. Pet owners often have to navigate multiple online stores or physical outlets to find quality, eco-friendly products, which is time-consuming and often confusing.
Solution: Eco-PetBox is a subscription-based service that curates and delivers boxes filled with eco-friendly, wellness-focused pet products right to your doorstep. Each box is tailored to the pet's type (dog, cat, etc.), size, and any specific dietary or wellness needs. The boxes can include sustainable pet food and treats, toys, health supplements, grooming supplies, and even wellness accessories like calming pet beds or anxiety wraps.
Competitive Advantage: What sets Eco-PetBox apart from other pet subscription services is its focus on sustainable and wellness-oriented products. Every product in the box is vetted for its eco-friendliness and contribution to pet wellness. The convenience of having a curated selection of products delivered to their doorstep each month will appeal to busy pet owners who care about both their pet's health and the environment.
Monetization: Eco-PetBox operates on a subscription model, with customers paying a monthly fee for their custom box of pet products. There can also be premium subscription options that offer additional benefits, such as access to expert advice, larger product selection, or faster delivery. Another potential source of revenue could be partnerships with sustainable pet product companies that wish to feature their products in the box.
Viral Social Media Strategy: To spread awareness and create a buzz around Eco-PetBox, a strong social media campaign centered around unboxing experiences can be initiated. Encouraging subscribers to share their unboxing experiences, review products, and showcase their pets enjoying the products can create authentic and engaging content. Special promotions, giveaways, and contests can also be launched to encourage sharing and tagging. Sharing stories highlighting the sustainable impact of the products in the box can resonate with eco-conscious pet owners and further drive shares and engagement.

Business Idea #3

Name: PetFit Tracker
Industry: Sustainable Wellness for Animals, Pet Tech
Problem: As pet obesity becomes a growing issue worldwide, pet owners are looking for ways to monitor and improve their pets' health and fitness. However, solutions for pet fitness tracking are still quite limited, especially for non-dog pets.
Solution: PetFit Tracker is a wearable pet fitness tracker designed for all types of pets – not just dogs. The device tracks various data such as physical activity, sleep patterns, calories burned, and more. The data is synced with a user-friendly mobile app where pet owners can analyze their pets' health and fitness progress, set goals, and receive personalized recommendations for improving their pets' wellness.
Competitive Advantage: PetFit Tracker's main competitive advantage lies in its inclusivity for all types of pets, making it stand out in a market heavily focused on dogs. Furthermore, integrating the device with the latest AI technology, such as the GPT-4 API, can provide unique personalized insights for pet owners based on their pets' data. For instance, the AI could analyze a pet’s activity patterns and provide customized exercise or diet recommendations, detect any unusual patterns that might signal a health issue, or even provide reminders for preventative care measures.
Monetization: The primary revenue stream would be the sale of the PetFit Tracker devices. An additional recurring revenue model could be established through a premium subscription for the mobile app, which offers advanced features and more in-depth insights. Collaborations with pet wellness brands for product recommendations could provide affiliate marketing income.
Viral Social Media Strategy: User-generated content will play a big role in the social media strategy. Pet owners could be encouraged to share their pets' fitness achievements, fun moments caught by the tracker, or transformations powered by the device. These stories can be shared on the company's social media platforms, creating an engaging community of health-conscious pet owners. Additionally, collaborations with pet influencers and partnerships with animal welfare organizations could further increase brand visibility and credibility.

2023.06.06 18:25 Married42019 Help with predator ID

Hello and happy Monday. I have a small flock of chickens at home, usually keep around 14 or 15 hens and a roo. We live far back off the road in a rural area in northern Ohio area. I have auto door that lets the chickens out to range in the morning and closes in the evening, I count them every night when it is closed. Recently we lost four hens in one day, feathers everywhere and gone without a trace, they were taken sometime during the day. I stopped letting them free range when us or the dogs weren’t out and about on the property. Then I left them out to run out, was gone maybe 2 hours and came home and two more were taken. Does anyone have any ideas what would take so many chickens during broad daylight without a trace?? I am going to put a camera on the coop. Local predators I can think of would be coyotes, bald eagles, weasels, mink, etc. I really want to let them free range again but I am terrified of losing more birds. Any ideas?

2023.06.06 18:25 TheThunder20 Nervousness when driving with someone

Most of the times I drive alone with no one else with me and my driving is pretty good. But when I drive with at least 1 passenger, I get nervous and can't focus properly on the road, especially if they talk to me, because I really can't focus on driving and talking at the same time. This probably happens because I'm not used to having someone with me in the car while driving. Anyone who experience this? How can I overcome it?

2023.06.06 18:25 honeygetthekids Local weather alerts & road status?

Olá everyone—after 2 beautiful weeks enjoying the Azores, we took a drive today from Furnas to Ponta Delgada during a break in the rain. Now when we tried to go back, the roads were closed and the storm seems MUCH more severe. We abandoned that plan and are currently waiting it out back in Ponta Delgada.
What is the best way to receive current weather alerts and road statuses to make the drive back? I realize accurate information will be given in Portuguese, but I would rather have something to translate than depend on the basic iPhone weather (which is only saying “moderate” rain right now!)

2023.06.06 18:25 SuchPig Failing Upwards Chapter 24

Universe by U/BlueFishCake
Previous Chapter
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////
I don't look like a sad orphan! I think.
Sean was frantically looking through his extremely limited supply of "nice" clothes. Haali had reminded him that while they were proper business attire, they weren't exactly glamorous or flattering. Sean had no use for fancy clothes, so he really didn't have any. Now here he was kicking himself for not having at least one nice shirt.
He leaned over and looked at himself in the mirror and groaned, "Damnit I have no idea what I'm doing. Reflection what do I do?".
He and his reflection both shrugged, "Ugh, some use you are.".
He stuck his head back into his closet, hoping that somehow a perfect article of clothing had somehow appeared there. Coincidentally he remembered an old shirt he had "borrowed" from his dad. He hadn't noticed it before, he kept it tucked away in a box at the top of the closet and he often forgot it existed. Besides, he virtually never looked through his clothes with this level of intensity.
As he reached up to the box, he began to feel increasingly ridiculous. It was one of his dad's old shirts from his partying days back when he was a little younger than Sean. Suffice it to say, the garment could be officially qualified as "old as shit".
Sean initially took it as a joke; something to wear to 80's parties or when he just wanted to look absurd. Fashion was an ever-changing force and so much time had passed since this shirt had been woven. You could turn a lot of heads for all the wrong reasons wearing this thing. But it did have one thing going for it: it strangely reminded him of something Haali would wear.
It didn't look like his fluffy pirate shirt or anything, but it had that same "I'm here to party 'till I die look". Sean fumbled around until his hand met the box, with an odd degree of reverence he slid the box off the shelf and he sat it on his bed. He flipped the lid off with one finger and winced when he saw it again.
I forgot how outrageous this thing is...
The "Turquiose Menace" as he had come to call it, would arise once again. He held it up; he smiled, then cringed, then weakly smiled once more. He held it over himself in the mirror and tilted his head from side to side, trying to make a decision. After a few more seconds of looking, he shrugged, nodded, "It'll have to do...". He gently laid it on his bed and went to take a shower.
////////////////////////////////////////////
Haruk had been enjoying herself getting ready for tonight. She was smiling and running a brush through her hair as she hummed to herself. She had invested in a full body mirror and was enjoying the sight of herself looking so good. She was ecstatic to have an excuse to get all dressed up and look sexy. While she was quite satisfied with her appearance, she had a growing sense of dread in the back of her mind concerning Sean and Xerya.
Goddess I hope those two show up wearing something half way decent.
She stopped brushing her long hair for a moment to rotate around and check out her back side. She smiled and giggled a bit, she loved getting everything about this. She spun back around and pushed a lock of hair over her ear, she then resumed brushing her hair. As she raised the brush for another stroke, she froze.
I... I better go check on Xerya.
/////////////////////////////////////////////
Xerya wasn't used to this feeling, and she really didn't like it. She was someone who always had her shit together, and now was one of the very few times in her life where she didn't. The sliding door to her closet in her room was wide open. She had her arms outstretched, resting on the opposing sides of the closet. She had a thin sheen of stress sweat coating her face and her eyes were widened by a low grade panic attack.
Nice? What does that even mean? I think a tank top and sweat pants are nice. I know that's not what they mean, but shit, I don't really have anything to work with here!
She frantically shoved her hangers from side to side as she searched for some forgotten article of clothing. The real kick in the tits was Haali's specific ban on wearing uniforms. When she had first gotten word of their dinner date, that's exactly where her mind first went; hell, that’s what she always wore when she had to dress up. They might have been a little stiff and up tight, but it gave her a decent set of clothes that were accepted in most places.
That devious little imp had now starved her of her silver bullet for fashion. So now she was trapped in a clothesless wasteland of her own making, and she was running out of time. She was about to double down on her growing anxiety by panicking about the time but was interrupted by a knock at the door.
Several aggressive thuds on the door were followed by Haruk's voice. Her tone was a blend of teasing and legitimate concern, "Hey Xerya you alive in there? You didn't get crushed under your own tits did ya?".
Thank the goddess!
Xerya bounded over to her door, her massive jugs bouncing around with every step. She had been topless while trying to decide what to wear. She flung the door open wearing an uncharacteristically neurotic look of fear. She was greeted by the image of an irritatingly sexy and well-dressed Haruk.
At first, she thought Haruk had magically grown several inches, but then as she looked down she noticed the shoes she was wearing. A pair of high heeled sandals were strapped to her feet. She was adorned by a cobalt blue dress that clung to her hips and ass and flowed freely as it cut off just above her ankles. It accented her flat tummy and the curves of her breasts as two straps tied together behind her neck to hold the whole thing up.
She had shiny earrings on and her hair had been expertly curled and styled. Her long glossy ponytail cascaded over her left shoulder. The blue of her highlights blended with the blue of her dress...and at that point Xerya realized she was staring. At Haruk of all people.
Haruk grinned and gently slid her ponytail over her shoulder in a practiced motion, "Damn I must look good, I'm even making girls stare.".
Xerya's cheeks became tinged with blue, "I-uhh- no I wasn't!".
Haruk rolled her eyes, "Yeah ok whatever.". Her eyes then crept downward to the blue capped mountains hanging off Xerya's chest, "So uhhh", she pointed at Xerya's tits, waving her finger in a little circle, "What's going on here?".
Xerya's blush intensified, she felt vulnerable. Not because of her tits hanging out, but because she didn't have a plan. Not having a plan was not how she lived her life. "Haruk I don't know what to do! You and Sean said no uniforms and I have nothing else but my awesome comfortable clothes.".
Haruk pushed past Xerya and invaded her room while shaking her head, "My goddess...".
For such a clever and punctual person, Xerya really did live like an animal. There was clutter and random bits of clothing all over the place. Haruk spun around in place marveling at the duality of Xerya's existence, "How do you live like this?".
Xerya swung her door shut and stepped to face Haruk. She ran her hands down her cheeks, "It's worse than usual. If you can't tell, I'm sort of freaking out. What the deep do I wear? I don't know how to look good!".
Haruk didn't want to ruin her makeup, but she managed a modest face palm anyways. She chuckled lightly, "You already look good you idiot. You just need to learn how to show it!".
Xerya flailed her arms in frustration, "With what though? Look in that closet? Would you honestly allow me to wear anything in there to dinner? We both know you're going the be the self-proclaimed fashion police here.".
Haruk smiled and pointed right at Xerya's face, "And don't you forget it.".
Haruk quickly spun around and began to pick through Xerya's closet. A mere few seconds later she spun around looking like she just saw a ghost, "You're fucked.".
Xerya mirrored Haruk's terror, "...what... do I do?".
Haruk looked at her omni pad, "Well we could try to run out real fast a-".
"We don't have time!" Xerya shouted.
Haruk stood silently with her chin resting on the thumb and index finger. One of her long legs pumped rhythmically as if generating thoughts. She looked up to Xerya with a somber expression, "There's only one thing we can do then.".
Xerya was desperate, she'd try anything at this point. Sean would be arriving in a few minutes, and she was out of ideas. Her voice was full of desperation, "Whatever it is, I'll do it!".
Haruk nodded, "Come to my room, it’s up to my closet to save you.".
Haruk strode out without another word. Her mind was focused solely on the task at hand; and it was quite a task. Trying to fit Xerya into her clothes sounded impossible, but tonight they needed to accomplish exactly that.
Haruk opened Xerya's door, then her own a few seconds later. Xerya stood there looking across the hall with her hands hanging at her sides. She whispered quietly and fearfully, "But... how will I fit?".
///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Sean was powerwalking his way through the corridors of the building. The black eyes of the marines were glued to him even more than usual. His shirt did not button up all the way, so he had been flashing his chest to everyone he crossed paths with. His face was burning red from all the attention.
It had been a constant stream of cat calls the whole way there. Many of the faces he recognized simply from being on the base a lot, and then there were the faces that belonged to his students. It was easy enough to ignore the strangers and run away. It was much harder to ignore Shinal stepping out of her room and staring at his chest while licking her lips.
Sean watched her nipples harden as she cooed, "You're looking... sharp today Mr. Warwick.". Sean felt obligated to say something on account of being her teacher. He smiled weakly and gave a quick, "Hi Shinal, see ya tomorrow.". He didn't even stop moving to say it. He blew past her as she leaned out her door to shamelessly stare at his ass like many others were.
Shinal pivoted back into her doorway and whispered to herself, "See you tomorrow...". She smiled up at the ceiling and disappeared back into her room.
Sean was grateful that he could see Xerya's door coming into view down the hallway. He never thought drowning in pussy could be a bad thing, until now. He laughed internally at the thought of a giant blue vagina popping out of a door somewhere and swallowing him whole like some sort of "Penis Fly-trap". He felt safer already as he gently knocked on Xerya's door.
His budding sense of safety quickly faded away as no one answered the door. That was very unlike Xerya to not stick to the plan.
I hope everything is ok. What if she's sick, or in trouble with work? That would fuck up the whole night. She better not, but she's better than that. What if something happened to her? Oh fuck maybe she's hurt... or worse!?
God damnit why does my brain always go straight to this insane shit!?
Sean looked to his right and saw several marines mingling about farther down the hall and trying very hard not to look like they were staring. Sean wanted nothing more than to disappear into Xerya's room, and now for some unknown reason he couldn't.
Fuck it, plan B.
He turned around and banged on Haruk's door in a decidedly more panicked fashion. A few seconds of insane daydreaming later and the door opened, revealing an exceptional looking Haruk.
Sean looked up extra high to meet her eyes, "Woah...".
Haruk smiled brightly and blushed, "Hi, Sean you look so...".
She bit her lip as her eyes glued themselves to his chest, "...good".
The reality of Sean's situation then dawned on Haruk. She leaned past Sean and looked into the hall; her suspicions were confirmed by the presence of the unwanted competition out there. She wrapped an arm around Sean's waist and quickly pulled him inside, "You beautiful idiot, get in here!".
Sean paced forward a bit and turned to watch Haruk push her door shut. Haruk put her hands on her hips, "You should have called one of us! You went through all that alone?".
Sean looked at the floor, "Ehh yeah, to both of those things, sorry.".
Haruk bent down and hugged Sean, "No I'm sorry. I'm not trying to be mean. I just want you to be safe.".
Sean turned and kissed her cheek as he wrapped his arms around her, "Well here I am in one piece, also, holy shit you look gorgeous!".
He broke out of her hug and stepped back to fit all of Haruk in his vision. He looked at her from head to toe, "You look so good I almost just wanna skip dinner.".
Haruk swooned, "If any of us looks good, its you! I've never seen a shirt like that. It's very se- um it looks so good on you!".
Sean laughed as he remembered how he dressed, "This thing practically came out of a time machine. It used to belong to my dad back when he was my age. I kept it just for fun, oddly enough it kind of reminded me of the shirts Haali wears.".
Haruk winked, "Well, whatever it is, it’s working.".
Sean couldn't help but to run a hand along Haruk's tight thigh, "Yeah, so is this.".
He looked up at Haruk and they swapped not so innocent smiles. Sean then membered why be was here, "So where's Xerya?".
Haruk looked to the corner of her room where her closet resided. Their rooms may not have had bathrooms in them, but they generous closets. She gently and quite reluctantly guided Sean's hand off of her thigh, "Let me go check. We had a bit of a clothing situation.".
Sean shrugged and chuckled, "Umm, ok. I hope she's about ready.".
As Haruk approached the closet Sean heard Xerya's voice, "I almost ready I swearing! And hi Sean!".
Sean smiled and looked toward the closet, "Everything ok in there?".
Haruk looked into her closet, "Oh my goddess!".
As she rounded the corner, she was greeted with the sight of Xerya annihilating her stretchiest dress. It was the only thing she had a hope of fitting into, and fitting was a very relative term in this case. She was spilling out of the top and bottom of Haruk's poor white dress.
She was frantically stuffing her tits back into the extremely low neckline. Doing so caused it to ride up her legs and damn near cause her ass to fall out the bottom. Her tits took up so much room in the dress there really wasn't much room left for the rest of her.
Xerya looked at Haruk with a worried expression, "Hold on I just need another second.". She reached down and pulled the bottom to cover more of her ludicrously thick thighs.
Haruk's looked shocked, "You're exploding out of it! By the Empress! You look like you're going to an erotica convention!".
Xerya turned to her looking terrified, "So, it's not working? We don't have time for anything else! And I feel ridiculous!".
Haruk was exasperated, "I mean, it's working, but not for the right reasons.".
Sean overheard this exchange, and he couldn't help but have a look. He peeked around the corner and his jaw hit the floor. Xerya was rocking a beyond skintight white dress that honestly couldn't contain her assets. He got there just in time to see her adjust her bra straps which made the dress ride back up her thighs again.
Xerya saw Sean emerge and blushed like she did the first time they met. She shyly put her hands behind her back and put on a nervous smile, "Hi".
Sean smiled ear to ear while fucking her with his eyes, "Hello to you.".
Haruk rolled her eyes, "See, he basically wants to fuck you right here. Only problem is, now we gotta go have dinner with our boss's, boss's, boss.".
Both Sean and Xerya wilted a bit, but very quickly their eyes began to slither all over each other again. Xerya huffed, "How do you wear these things Haruk?".
Haruk crossed her arms, "Well not like you, that’s for sure.".
Sean squeezed by Haruk, he was compelled to feel Xerya's touch. He literally couldn't stay away, "Xerya you look incredible.".
She quickly responded to his approach by kneeling down and kissing him. Sean allowed his hands to roam all over her, "Just uhhh, try not to pop out at the dinner table. I feel like that would make things maybe just a bit awkward.".
Xerya looked mortified, then relaxed a little, "Yes, I really do not want sex dinner.".
Xerya stood back up and Sean guided her and Haruk towards the door, "Yeah sex is for dessert, not dinner.".
As he said that he made eye contact with Haruk and licked his lips with a devilish smile. Haruk turned blue and bit her lip in anticipation.
They got to the door and Sean put his hand on the handle, "Ok, are you two as nervous as I am?”.
Haruk enthusiastically said, “Oh yeah.”.
Xerya, looking quite nervous, quietly and rapidly nodded.
Sean turned the handle and swung the door open, “Alright, lets try to survive this thing.”.
////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
The exo hangar was a loud, well-lit place. Most of the time. Now it was dark except for the lights in bay one. The building was eerily quiet except for the occasional clang or whirring of hand tools. As always, the place stunk of grease, coolant, and sweat.
There was one other sound that broke the pattern of mechanical noises.
"BROTHER FUCKING DAUGHTER OF A CUNT!"
Khe'siri leaned against the wrench and shoved with all her freakish strength. The sweat poured off her brow as she grunted and strained. She adjusted her footing, tightened her grip on the wrench and pushed again. Alas the stubborn bolt refused to turn.
She stepped back and shook the numbness out of her hands, "Goddess damned piece a shit! What crawled up your ass?".
She sat down on a crate and took a long sip off her water bottle. She scowled at the bolt; she hated it. She wanted to defeat it... to destroy it.
I don't care if it takes me all night. That little fucker is coming out of there.
Anyone else who saw her like this would assume she was miserable. That wasn't the case though. It was dark, quiet except for her, and there was no one else around. No people, no bullshit, just her and her work. This was her happy place.
Happy of course was a relative term. Khe'siri didn't have the broadest spectrum of emotions out there. She was angry more often than she wasn't, she was infamous for her fiery temper and foul mouth. A quiet calm was about as close to happy as she could go. Despite her swearing and endless threats to the inanimate objects around her, she was almost enjoying herself.
She stood back up and wiped her hands on her coveralls. As usual the top half was tied around her waist leaving just a tight black tank top covering her chest. Sort of. She once again glared at the bolt on the exo's ankle actuator, "Ok smart ass, you just earned yourself a date with the breaker.".
She reached behind her toolbox and retrieved a five-foot-long purple metal bar. It had a modular slot on the end to fit virtually any kind of nut, bolt, or screw in the Imperium. She had made it herself and was immensely proud of it. She was the only one who ever used it. Not only were many others afraid to interact with her, but they could barely even lift it anyways. It even felt heavy to her, and she loved it dearly.
As she wrapped her meaty hands around it, she looked at it with true affection. Love never brought her anything but trouble in the past. Love with people anyways, but the breaker only ever brought her joy. It was basically her boyfriend.
She had a joyous glint in her eye as she approached the bolt once more, "Alright you little shit, looks like we're doing this the hard way.".
She found herself holding back a smile. Despite the joy she felt wielding the breaker, she really hated that bolt.
Without any preamble she slotted in the proper head and placed it over the bolt. She had the bar angled across her chest so she could channel all her might into it. Between that and the massive mechanical advantage provided by its length, no nut or bolt had ever resisted its power. She was confident this one would be broken like all the others.
"TIME TO GET FUCKED"
Her biceps swelled as she dumped all her power into the breaker. This was the part where the bolt was supposed to turn. Where she got to win. To have at least one little thing in her life turn out her way. But it did not.
She grunted, those grunts turned into growls. Her frustration and rage crescendoed into outright yells, "WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU?!". Almost as if the universe wanted to kick her while she was down, she caught a glimpse of herself reflected on a deactivated data pad as she screamed that question.
She let go of the breaker and thew her arms into the air. She was still looking at her reflection, "What the fuck is wrong with you?".
This was supposed to be the one thing she was good at. Her current failure reminded her of her abysmal scores in that stupid English class she had to take. Not that she really gave a shit about it, but she needed to pass. After a prior incident involving a gratuitous lack of self-control and a dumbass fellow mechanic, Sergeant Revni had creatively punished Khe'siri by enrolling her in English classes on base.
Now she was stuck in that class with a bunch of hopeless cunts who think they'll be able to fuck their teacher. Not only did she not like her classmates, but that human language was stupid. It's hard to learn a language when you hate it and the class.
Then there was that teacher of theirs. He was always parading around the room acting like he was everyone's friend with his tight little pants and fat ass. Guys only ever brought her trouble. Now she had to sit there and listen to a preachy little human male teach her his primitive language.
And now this bolt.
Thinking about the mountain of failures that was her life caused her temper to flare once more. She stormed over to the data pad and threw a punch fueled by her searing anger. The screen instantly cracked into a spiderweb pattern, and the entire back side now domed outwards. Not feeling satisfied, she grabbed the tablet and launched it across the room where it exploded against the opposite wall.
"FUCK!"
She stood there panting and looking at the floor while the hurricane in her mind gradually wound down. She turned to head back to the breaker for one last final try when she noticed something.
Oh my fuck.
The entire casing for that ankle joint was bent. It would be impossible to pull the bolts now. Fixing a broken arm had just turned into brain surgery. Khe'siri gritted her teeth and sneered, "Oh just wait till I find the bitch that drives this thing..."
