2023.06.07 15:08 SandraSandraSandra A Struggle - The Saga of Flower-Hill 5

The hill appeared deserted. Sonurupākä was not sure if he should find the worrying, or a positive indication that the disruption caused by their hordes has gone relatively unnoticed.
His wife and the Great Mothers of his clan had done it. They had united the clans of Konuthomu behind a single purpose. Behind a single man. Behind him. More than that, his mission east had been a success—they think. This hill is where they are supposed to meet. Is it possible the people of Kamābarha have betrayed their trust.
He stews on this risk as the column advances up the hill. They travel in twos—one with a spear, one with a bow—each carrying a simple cloth rucksack with arrows and food.
Ahead he sees a face emerge from the undergrowth—he draws his bow and knocks the arrow he’d had at his belt, and then noticed the lack of feathers and painted pictographs. In Rhadämā he calls, “Hail good son, I hope your wait has been short and fruitful.”
Despite the initial shock of a bow in his face, the Kamābarha scout recovers admirably, “Aye, we just arrived then finished the midday meal. Come, I shall take you to our Outer-Chief.”
The featherless man, young and lithe with hungry eyes and handsome visage, leads the column up the hill. As they round the crest, a crowd emerged seated in its meadowy crest.
It’s a good crowd, with bows and spears much the same as theirs. The leader stands dressed in a blue and red cape and central skirt. Ōdjobanama, son of the great clan mother of Kamābarha, greets him heartily, “The spirits are good bringing us together so swiftly. Please, sit, share my plate.” He guides Sonurupākä over to a small circle of richly dressed men. Before them sit plates with zizania, fried tuber, and rabbit. Sitting, the two leaders eat and talk, planning for the assaults.
There are three main settlements of this particular band of Yelithātsan, surrounded by managed forest and meadowland for grazing and their meagre farms imitating civilization. The attack is to begin after the fall of night, when the savages are hopefully in their cups—even barbarians keep to the holy day. They honour Him in another way: he saves us all from destruction, so we shall save ourselves from pilfering. Splitting the horde into two equal groups, one under each Outer-Chief’s command, they shall approach the main village together. Once cleared, they will move on to the subsequent two. Messy business, but necessary.
The Outer-Chiefs toast their plans with small cups of cranberry wine, and lay down for a rest. The night shall be long and tiring.
The flickering torchlight paints their faces ghostly as they stand, ringing the village.
It is a quaint, wooden affair with thatch roofs and small-halls. Larger barns surround the village in the pasture land. Those shan’t be touched, the bison’s their reward, after all.
Half a dozen scouts creep into the village, the sounds of caroling have ceased—the festivities are at an end. It has been a dry month, more so than usual, and the homes take fire easily. First the thatch but then the thinner planks and wattle used. The scours quickly retreat to the village surroundings and take up their spears or bows, posted beside arrows stuck-standing in the dry earth.
The first shouts are ones of terror—the smell of smoke and unwelcome light rousing the unknowing sleepers within.
“Water, water,” the cries ring out as the people scramble to put out the fires.
The first to show themselves are the young mothers, easily roused and quickly killed as arrows fly. The village is surrounded, there is nowhere to flee.
Cries of terror and “attack” begin to accompany those for water. Somewhere some babes begin to bawl.
Sonurupākä steadies his face and fired arrows, piercing the throat of a young boy, newly-feathered, who took up a spear in his house’s defence.
“Savagery is a blight upon the land. An ordered paddy requires weeding. Allow for rot and you ruin the store.”
Repeating platitudes under his breath, he fires again and again into the crowds. Still, his stomach rolls. It is his duty, nothing more. He was trusted to do this. It is an honour.
One of his men pierces a woman with a babe, the two falling to the earth in a single heap. Another a wizened matriarch. A few brave fools with spears and clubs and knives make it to the perimeter, only for the spearmen of the forces of order to make quick work of them.
As the fires rage higher and all hope of putting them out is lost, and bodies begin to pile, more and more of the Yelithatsan simply throw their bodies to the ground and plea for forgiveness, for grace, for god.
The harder challenge is raised by those of the farmhouses and barns attacking from the dark. A few clever Yelithatsan loose arrows from the forests, downing some of the forces of civilization, but they too are overwhelmed.
With the resistance broken, it’s easy work to go through the wreckage, slicing the throats of those wounded but struggling long—offering a little prayer and making them an offering in thanks for protection in the battle.
The main task, however, is slicing off the left ears off the defeated—both living and dead. By taking the Kemihatsārä of the defeated, they are robbed of status and power. Women, youths, and weaker men are left alive—if they don’t get infected from their wound—and are to be taken back as farm labour. Their feathers of parrot and pigeon shall adorn the cloaks of the victors.
Those who are too wilful receive a simpler fate: a knife makes quick work of resistance.
Binding the prisoners and leaving some men to guard them, the troupes split up and continue their assault.
Some 800 lie dead as midday sets in, but thousands of bison and many urns of wine have been seized. The victors take turns sleeping as others burn the dead—Proper pyres with prayers for the honoured dead, the defeated built in with the kindling.
The divvying up of the rewards is simple enough: Konuthomu’s rewards belong to the clan mothers—they shall decide the division upon their return (or, realistically, already have), and Ōdjobanama’s requests seemed fair.
They shall rest and feast here tonight, amongst the ruins of the village. In the morning, the captives will be loaded with goods and brought to their new lives as landless labour: servants of new clans. Before the funeral pyres, Sonurupākä completes a ritual. This is perhaps aggressive, inventing something new, but it seems necessary. Casting the ears into the fire, he grants the Kemihatsārä of the defeated to the victorious soldiers. Feathers of parrot and pigeon are added to cloaks: trophies of victory. Those who distinguished themselves most admirably receive more, with multiple feathers marking their prestige.
The duNothudo, of DjamäThanä at least, had told him to treat the victors as heroes. He prays this is what they meant. But the men had begun to add the feathers to their own cloaks—and that anarchy could be tolerated.
The smell of burnt flesh accompanies the feast, dozens of bison roast over raging fires and hearty stews of rice and tuber grace the tables. Glory tastes excellent.
The welcome back in Konuthomu was incredible. A small, congratulatory feast was thrown upon their return, and Sonurupākä was granted a full row of clan-feathers from each of the six clans: extending his cape beneath his tail-bone.
The division of the resources was decided upon, with 144 bison set aside for the Autumnal Equinox. Invitations were sent out far and wide for all villages within six days of canoeing to come, pay homage to the Great Mothers of Konuthomu, take part in the bounty and generosity of the Mothers, and arrange for their commitments to the granaries of Konuthomu. The Potters’ Quarter, a dense maze of small, two-story houses, kilns, and workshops below the Themilanan split between DjamäThanä in the East and NāpäkoduThonu in the West was abuzz.
1728 bowls of celadon.
That is what Senisedjarha had called for, and that is what Sonurupākä must deliver. The Nōlukomuko, DjamäThanä’s portion of the recent prisoners, were put to work quarrying the feldspar needed to make the glaze, and the workshops of the Potters’ Quarter seemed lit and full both night and day. Overview of the Quarter is not chiefly Sonurupākä’s duty, but the fruit harvests are in the hands of Nolunaman and Sonurupākä is not needed beyond the city.
Perhaps soon, if messengers come back reporting on the peasants who refuse to pay homage to the Great Mothers, he’ll be needed beyond the Themilanan. But for now, he can dedicate himself to artistry and allow the glaze to clear his mind.
They’d needed to remind a few families of their position—and what they owe to the Great Mothers of Konuthomu. But the Autumnal Equinox proved to be the greatest event Konuthomu had ever known. In the meadows just beyond the fields, dozens of long tables were set up. Seventy-two fire pits were dug, each to roast two of the 144 bison for the feast. Tsukõdju had never witnessed such a feast.
The evening ends with declarations by the duNothudo: Nāpäkodu Peritēki-Demisenikonu is named Outer-Chief—it makes sense, his time is up and he has served his duty well.
But the duNothudo do not stop there. “As is plain to all, the world grows more dangerous, more complex. We need a strong hand to enact our wisdom, and to protect us. Nāpäkodu Peritēki-Demisenikonu shall be our spear: the protector of Konuthomu. But what good is a spear without a kiln and field to protect? We thus name Djamä Sonurupākä-Pēzjeceni Inner-Chief.”
A murmur rises. So his task is not done.
The weather has cooled and the harvest has been completed. He has had a busy few months. But as he has settled into his new role and finished the duties with the harvest, he has had time to think.
It’s night now, the air is cold. He woke from bed and is wearing only a woolen poncho, traded for from the Yeli. He walks in the courtyard garden in the Rhadämā style house he built—indisputably the greatest in the Themilanan, positioned on a flat mound extending above the Potters’ District.
He woke up from a recurring nightmare: he’s back in that flaming village, he looses an arrow at a figure running at him through the flames. He goes to see who it was, and finds Senisedjarha holding their newborn daughter.
At that moment he always wakes up. One of the serving girls on duty brings him his pipe, packed with tobacco, and a cup of strong maple wine. He sits on a rock, moonlight filtering through the leafy canopy above him.
A man must do his duty, for that is what makes a path.
Another drink and he’ll return to bed and take his wife in his arms.
Another drink and he’ll be able to sleep.

Production companies : Warner Bros. Pictures.
At San Diego Comic-Con in July, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had other people raising eyebrows when he said that his long-awaited superhero debut in Spider Man Across the Spider Verse would be the beginning of “a new era” for the DC Extended Universe naturally followed: What did he mean? And what would that kind of reset mean for the remainder of DCEU's roster, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the rest of the Justice League, Suicide Squad, Shazam and so on.As
Spider Man Across the Spider Verse neared theaters, though, Johnson clarified that statement in a recent sit-down with Yahoo Entertainment (watch above).
“I feel like this is our opportunity now to expand the DC Universe and what we have in Spider Man Across the Spider Verse , which I think is really cool just as a fan, is we introduce five new superheroes to the world,” Johnson tells us. Aldis Hodge's Hawkman, Noah Centineo's Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell's Cyclone and Pierce Brosnan's Doctor Fate, who together comprise the Justice Society.) “One anti-hero.” (That would be DJ's Spider Man Across the Spider Verse .)
“And what an opportunity. The Justice Society pre-dated the Justice League. So opportunity, expand out the universe, in my mind… all these characters interact. That's why you see in Spider Man Across the Spider Verse , we acknowledge everyone: Batman , Superman , Wonder Woman, Flash, we acknowledge everybody.There's also some Easter eggs in there, too.So that's what I meant by the resetting.Maybe 'resetting' wasn't a good term.only
one can claim to be the most powerful superhero .And Johnson, when gently pressed, says it's his indestructible, 5,000-year-old Kahndaqi warrior also known as Teth-Adam, that is the most powerful superhero in any universe, DC, Marvel or otherwise
. "By the way, it's not hyperbole because we made the movie."And we made him this powerful.
There's nothing so wrong with “Spider Man Across the Spider Verse ” that it should be avoided, but nothing—besides the appealing presence of Dwayne Johnson—that makes it worth rushing out to see. spectacles that have more or less taken over studio filmmaking, but it accumulates the genre's—and the business's—bad habits into a single two- hour-plus package, and only hints at the format's occasional pleasures. “Spider Man Across the Spider Verse ” feels like a place-filler for a movie that's remaining to be made, but, in its bare and shrugged-off sufficiency, it does one positive thing that, if nothing else, at least accounts for its success: for all the churning action and elaborately jerry-rigged plot, there's little to distract from the movie's pedestal-like display of Johnson, its real-life superhero.
It's no less numbing to find material meant for children retconned for adults—and, in the process, for most of the naïve delight to be leached out, and for any serious concerns to be shoehorned in and then waved away with dazzle and noise. Spider Man Across the Spider Verse ” offers a moral realm that draws no lines, a personal one of simplistic stakes, a political one that suggests any interpretation, an audiovisual one that rehashes long-familiar tropes and repackages overused devices for a commercial experiment that might as well wear its import as its title. When I was in Paris in 1983, Jerry Lewis—yes, they really did love him there—had a new movie in theaters. You're Crazy, Jerry."Spider Man Across the Spider Verse " could be retitled 'You're a Superhero, Dwayne'—it's the marketing team's PowerPoint presentation extended to feature length.
In addition to being Johnson's DC Universe debut, “Spider Man Across the Spider Verse ” is also notable for marking the return of Henry Cavill's Superman. The cameo is likely to set up future showdowns between the two characters, but Hodge was completely unaware of it until he saw the film.
“They kept that all the way under wraps, and I didn't know until maybe a day or two before the premiere,” he recently said Spider Man Across the Spider Verse Wakanda Forever (2022) FULLMOVIE ONLINE

2023.06.07 15:01 j13409 Any way to slightly lengthen phallo penis?

Whether it be through surgery or loosening scars or what?
My goal was 6” long and 5” girth.
Girth wise I should be fine. I’m above 5” girth rn but I’m having liposuction next week which my surgeon is confident will get me to 5-5.5” after swelling goes down. If necessary I can have penile plication after to get down another 0.25-0.5”. I’m not too worried about that.
Length wise, however, measuring from the top against my mons pubis I’m like 5”, and measuring from the side I’m 5.5”, so 5-5.5”. I’ll probably tell people 5.5” if they ask, but realistically 5” is probably more accurate a measure when it comes to sex.
I really want to get closer to 6” length instead of 5”. Is there any possible way to try to achieve this? Like any methods of loosening the vertical scar on the underside of my penis to help lengthen it some? Or any minor surgery method I haven’t heard of before to help lengthen it?
If there’s no hope, any recommendations on how to get over mild penis size insecurity? All the toys my gf and I use are 6” length and 4.5-5” girth. So like I said I’m not worried about girth, but length I am. She’s used to 6” toys, I feel mildly embarrassed to not measure up to that. Especially since with toys you get basically the entire length insertable, but with a real penis you have an added insertable limitation due to sex position limitations.
Sex has been great thus far. But I’m mildly nervous about making sure things stay just as good once we can start have PIV sex, which we’ll probably try in a handful of months once my girth is decreased.

2023.06.07 15:00 NeedRomanticPass 48 [M4F] #NJ - Seeking a special woman!

You have been a good woman your whole life, but you also have carried a secret with you that fills you with silent shame and embarrassment, because your fantasy doesn't match your personality at all. There is something secretly submissive in you that yearns to be satisfied. You long for a dominant, sexy, man to take control of you and discipline you. You want to feel helpless...dominated...NOT in control. You want to have your panties forcibly taken down and be spanked like a naughty school girl. You want to be pushed down over the sofa, feel your skirt lifted, your moistened underwear pulled aside. You want a big, hard cock to invade your slippery wetness, stretching you wider than you thought possible and making you feel oh so delicious!. You are a normal person, constrained by society's conventions and frustrated by your inability to realize your innermost fantasies. You want to be spanked with your panties down and you want to be fucked hard! -- you are already getting wet right now just thinking about it.
I am a well educated, intelligent & professional man who is physically fit and accustomed to dealing with naughty women like you. I will lecture you and instruct you to pull your skirt up around your waist as I kneel before you and pull your panties down to your thighs. The delicious smell of your aroused pussy will rise to meet me. You will feel the cool air on your bush and revel in the delicious anticipation. Then I will instruct you to stand against the wall with your legs spread and your hands above your head while I slowly pace about behind you and your clit tingles with excitement. You will feel my eyes on your pussy and this thought will excite you even more. Then I will call you sternly and bend you over a chair so that your pussy is in full view - wet, exposed, vulnerable. Oh, the shame of it. I will stroke your clit gently and when you try to stop me I will slap your cheeks hard.
Then I will commence the spanking proper. Perhaps I will use my hand. If you resist too much I will use a slipper or my leather belt. It will sting, but not be intolerable, and every now and again you would feel my fingers probe your fragrant slippery slit, making you gasp with pleasure and ache for penetration. Maybe I will tell you to reach between your legs and spread your lips apart with your fingers as I kneel behind you and slide my tongue between your sopping aromatic folds. I will continue spanking your now very red ass and you will be torn between tears and screams of delight. When your punishment is over, I will instruct you to kneel in front of me and take my big cock deep into your mouth, making you almost gag as I hold your hair and fuck your face while you moan approvingly and look up at me, your eyes wild with desire. When I am convinced that you want my cock badly enough I will turn you around on your hands & knees and I will wait as you kneel in that position until you BEG me to fuck you, and then I will grab you firmly by your hips and RAM my hard cock into your wet & swollen pussy hard and fast; banging you the way you were meant to be banged, until we both collapse in a sweaty heap of sexual bliss.
I know you are wet after reading this so lets do something about it..

2023.06.07 14:56 srfprg_1006af Really freaking out

Really freaking out
So my 1 hour test was 139 out of 140, & they decided to call me ONE MONTH later to do the 3 hour test. I thought my first results were good because they were in the green, so I didn’t call them to confirm & they always say they’ll call me if something is wrong. I know they are short handed but it’s just not an excuse when my babies life is on the line. This is the first pregnancy where I had this kind of testing at all, because with my first, I lost my daughter at 20 weeks so I didn’t get to that point yet. I’m so pissed that they waited a whole month to call since I am high risk to begin with. I’m still waiting for my doctor to call me about these results which I obviously know are positive for GD. I’m 33 weeks today. I’m so nervous that I’m going to lose my baby girl. Please tell me it’ll be ok as long as I keep my diet in check😭😭😭 I’ve already been worried since my first daughter passed & this just doesn’t help. & infuriates me they didn’t call me for a whole month. I guess I’m really just venting, I just want it to be July already & want my baby girl alive & healthy in my arms. I know there is a higher chance of stillbirth now. I am just totally not in a good headspace.

Travis Petelle – Ecom Revolutions

Hey, what’s up? Travis Petelle here and today, I have something very cool to share with you.
Over the past few years, I’ve been focused on building e-commerce brands and I’ve been quite successful at it. It all started with learning how to sell people t-shirts through social media and quickly grew into an empire of print on demand, drop shipping, and warehousing across the world.
Even though I’ve had great results with my e-commerce stores, I’ve always felt like a major peice of the puzzle was missing. I was stuck in a habit of always trying to find and launch new products and new designs. After a while, it not only got old, but it got less effective.
To really have big success with the same model I used in years past, I’d have to work 10 times as much and invest the same monetarily. So, coming into 2017, I vowed to make a change to our e-commerce system to make it much more profitable by doing the same amount of work we’re doing now. or even less if we’re lucky.
The way I’ve been able to do this is with recurring offers. Instead of trying to launch 20+ products per day every day just to find a winner, I’ve shifted our focus towards growing recurring box offers for each of our e-commerce brands.
Recurring box offers are the perfect head piece to any e-commerce store. You can stop the rat race of always trying to find new winners and give your business the focus it needs to create a rabid buyer community.
I love these recurring offers and if you’re doing any type of e-commerce, I think you’ll agree with admiration. Here are just a few key reasons why you need to add recurring offers to your business.
You get paid more than once. If you keep your customers happy, they could be paying you every month for years to come. all from the same simple acquisition. Your conversions will boost. giving your audience a focus instead of new things every week always helps increase conversions over time. Recurring offers make a perfect lead in product and a perfect back end offer as well. You’re now able to plan ahead. One big negative to e-commerce is unpredictability for the upcoming month. With recurring offers, you can forecast and estimate your growth much simpler. Your customer Lifetime Value will skyrocket. increase LTV is a key element to business growth and recurring offers take care of that instantly. People love them. Recurring box offers very popular right now and it’s time to hit the iron while it’s hot. Just check out the results from the newest box offer we created just a few days ago. Within the first 22 hours, we already broke $1,000 per month.
You’re about to see exactly how I am able to do this over and over again. Now that you see just how powerful a recurring offer could be for your e-commerce brand, allow me to help you build an awesome one. Today, I am proud to announce my latest training course, Ecom Revolutions.
In this course, I walk you step by step through my process for building and maintaining recurring offers for my e-commerce brands. These recurring offers range from digital info product memberships to simple coffee mug of the month clubs to extensive subscription boxes.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been running an e-commerce store for years or if you’re brand new, this course will be able to help you build a successful and lucrative recurring offer.
Here’s the breakdown of this video course: The Fundamentals
In this section, I explain the basic principles and starter steps to getting cranking on your recurring box offer. I discuss what makes the right recurring offer and how to find that offer for your business. You’ll also get to see an inside look my business model breakdown. a very important early step to ensure you’re on the right path moving forward.
The Foundation
This section of the course is all about building our sales system. You’ll get to see an over the shoulder look at our box offers going right now and how we’ve built them using simple tools that anyone reading this would have no issue with. I also discuss the systems we use to further profit from our member’s with backend funnels.
The Marketing
This extensive section shares a handful of methods we’re using to market and promote our recurring box offers. You’ll get an in depth look at Facebook ads, Social Media Marketing, Influencers, & Affiliates. I also break down some lead generation techniques that fit perfectly with our recurring box offers. Let’s just say, these offers are what Free + Shipping techniques were meant for.
The Fulfillment
In the last section of the course, I go through the process of actually fulfilling the recurring offer on hand. This extremely important section will help you get out of the gate smooth and avoid a ton of roadblocks that most businesses will run into. I know I did and figuring these steps out made a huge difference. You’ll also get a peak at some easy mode options for hands off recurring offers.
So now that you know this course is going to be perfect for you, it’s time to dive in and take action. What you need to do now is click that BUY BUTTON and grab your spot in this training course. This offer is only available for a few days. then I will be taking it down for good. You’ve been warned! Don’t hesitate and grab this course now!

2023.06.07 14:52 lucky232323 Environmental?

So I developed psoriasis at 28 (now 32) and no one in my family has it. My husband then started to develop it around age 29 (now 33). Our Toddler started developing skin issues around 18 months (now 23 months). Now our dog has psoriasis…
My question is, do you think our home is causing this? No one in mine or my husbands family has skin issues!! We moved into our home in 2017 (when I was 27)… all seemed to start occurring within 18 months (which is how old my daughter was when she developed it).
I just ordered a MOLD kit to test our air. When we moved in, a tornado hit our area the following week, this caused roof damage. It took 8 months to resolve with insurance (thanks American Family) and they said everything was fine but now I wonder if we are experiencing MOLD and this is what’s actually triggering everything.
I just find it really weird we are ALL getting this (even the DOG!)
Anyone having similar experiences? (And don’t try to sell me on this “it’s hereditary” BS.. I don’t personally believe that!)
Side Note: I’ve been doing the CANDIDA diet because I was tested for MOLD allergens and it came back positive. For Candida albicans. Which my doctor says I react to YEAST. So I’ve been doing this Candida diet and it is actually clearing up. Along with taking supplements and more probiotics.
I also have it down below (if you know what I’m saying) and steroids alone never helped. BUT I’ve been having success with using TUCKS cooling wipe pads every time I use the restroom, then applying Jock Itch cream and it’s been going away!!!! I’ve been doing it for 5 days straight and it’s nearly gone and it was BAD.
Hoping for input and hoping this info helps others :)

[City of Roses] no. 27.2: “The first order of Business” – at This table – antique Punk bullshit – the Basics of Security
previous Table of Contents
tends to crumble
“The first order of business,” says the man at the head of the table, “in any face time we take with potential occupancy partners, we need to assess how the anticipated anchor’s gonna impact their appraisal and availability approach.” It’s a long table, a slab of wood the color of pale flesh, polished to a striking gleam that’s broken here and there by a phone or a computer tablet laid before this person or that, until down at the very other end of it, a couple of comb-bound reports bristling with post-it flags, a spill of colorful diagrams, a worn redweld holding a couple of file folders upright, a small black notebook splayed open, the wispy scratch of a fountain pen, APPRAISAL written in ruddy black ink, AVAILABILITY , then three sharp underscores. “It’s not,” the man at the head of the table is saying, “that we anticipate an antagonism toward the anchor, on the part of any potential partners?” His flat grey suit’s a touch too big, the collar of his soft blue shirt’s undone, his sparse beard neatly trimmed. “But by anticipating,” he says, “their respective stances vis-à-vis their individualized brand engagement profiles which, let me assure you, we will be reviewing in a thorough manner before we, we take up any,” he’s trailing off, “tête-à-têtes,” blinking quizzically. The room about them’s walled in cool sheets of green-tinged glass on all four sides and more beyond refracting, reflecting, shimmering desk lamps and fluorescents, computer screens, heads popping up over cubicle walls, turning, following the figure swimming up through them, one glass door after another opening before her, “I,” says the man at the head of the table, “excuse me,” as the final glass door swings open, she’s sweeping into the room, Ysabel in her long white coat. “I tried to tell her,” someone’s saying, a receptionist maybe, bobbing in her wake, and “Do you mind,” says an older man, halfway down the table, a hand on his phone on the wood, but she’s glaring at the very other end of the table. “How dare you,” she says.
“Sorry, folks,” says Lymond, screwing the cap onto his fountain pen. “Think we might have the room a minute?”
“I, um,” says the man at the head of the table, “we just got started?”
“And we’ll get right back into it,” says Lymond. “I’m really looking forward to hearing more about this brand engagement. Now,” pushing back his chair, “if you don’t mind,” but already they’re filing out, shirts and blouses of dull green, milky blue, an intrepid puce, awkwardly around past Ysabel all in white. “Um,” says the man who’d been at the head of the table, in his flat grey suit.
“Thanks,” says Lymond, cheerfully. The green glass door swings shut. “How dare I?” he says, to Ysabel. “I’m the King. A certain latitude’s expected.”
“You could’ve gotten her killed,” says Ysabel.
“They’re watching, you know,” he says, tucking a report into the redweld. “Go on. Lean over the table. Slap me. That should be enough to undo all his sacrifice secured.”
She blinks at that, draws back. “Sacrifice,” she says.
“He thought of it as such,” says Lymond, stacking up those diagrams, tapping their edges against the wood. “Now. Slap me, or turn about, and go home.”
“Not until you explain yourself, brother.”
“Oh, Ys,” he says. “If you would play at this table,” he’s tucking the diagrams into a file folder, “you must pay attention.” A wince, as he sets the folder aside. “We find ourselves upon a crux: the duel between the Devil and the Huntsman redounded to our favor, yet the wound’s but freshly healed. Any sudden shift might tear it right back open.” His hands, folded together before him, a thumb pressed tight against a knuckle. “Is that what you would have?”
“I’ve seen the wound,” she says. “He nearly cut her through. The owr does what it can,” and she looks up from the tabletop to meet his eyes, one brown, one blue, both cold. “She sleeps. She’s been asleep since the Mason brought her home.” Leaning down now, both hands planted on the glossy wood. “I’m doing you a courtesy, by answering a question I assume you would eventually have asked?”
A bitter something of a smile. “How is Jo,” he says, “how Jo is, I know how is our Gallowglas: loyal, and effective. I trusted her to do what needed doing, and she went and got it done. Now,” over her sharp intake of breath, “I ask, once more. You know what is at stake. Do you mean to stand against any particular point of our plan?” Leaning in close. “Slap me,” he says. “Or go home.”
She steps back, she turns away. Before she can open the green glass door he says, “Take care, sister, where and when you might vent any further displeasures?” Looking down, at his folded hands. “Our tantrums are expensive.”
“You’ve no idea,” she says, “what could’ve spilled from her heart, had his stroke been a whit more true.”
She opens the door. He shifts his thumb. The thin line of a neat straight cut along the edge of his forefinger, sewn with tiny beads of dark red blood. He lifts it to his lips. “Um,” says someone, the man in the flat grey suit a touch too big, peering into the room. “Everything good?”
“Paper cut,” says Lymond, waving him in. “C’mon, let’s go. Take it from the top.”

Well and I don’t know, dim voices floating up through floorboards loosely laid across the joists, not what we discussed, poets and junkies, epic, like some, there’s a mirror, there’s no one in the mirror, there’s a crack in the glass of it jagged, chased and dappled, splotched with gold, a spangled haze, such a history, working together, that didn’t work, a drip-drip trickle from the faucet, puddles on gold-streaked marble about the sink, but there, it’s gonna be epic, dust gone dark to grey, to black, a lump of it mucked up under the mirror, with the shreds of a burst plastic baggie, this, or this, or this. There’s music, too, loud but languid, strummed guitars, a melodeon, but she’s sitting up in the dark, her head in her hands, and there is no mirror, no light, no sinks or water, no marble countertop, but there is the dust, spangled, glimmering in the milky cloud of her hair, and still the music.
“Well if we have to have a name,” says Gloria Monday.
“It’s something to put on a poster,” says the woman sitting on the nubbled pea-green couch, one hand braced on the curled handle of an orthopædic cane, a big brown scaley purse in her lap.
“Well if that’s all we want,” says Gloria, wrestling to one side a great stretched canvas, a twirling figure calligraphed in slashes of black, to reveal another propped behind it, the next wild scribble of dance. She steps back, behind a tiny silver camera atop a stolid tripod, stoops to peer through it. “We could call it the Lawn,” she says, snapping a picture. Straightening, she looks back and forth, from the painting, to the image of it, now on the enormous white-framed monitor behind her there on the worktable.
“As in get off the?” says the woman standing off to one side, her long black coat done up with brightly silver buttons, and a little grey snap-brim hat on her head.
“That’s not what we discussed,” says Anna in her houndstooth trousers, narrow black-rimmed glasses glaring in the light.
“The house,” says Gloria, taking hold of the canvas. “Run-down and falling apart and poets and junkies and twenty bedrooms to one bathroom and full of,” lifting, “epic,” hoisting it aside, “legend, and, and art,” to reveal the next. “The Lawn,” says Gloria Monday. Her feet are bare, laddered tights printed with overlapping gears, her vast white T-shirt says Robot Fightin’ Boots.
“I liked Weatherall’s,” says Anna. “If we’re going to change it.”
“Yeah, well,” says Gloria, stooping behind the camera again.
“Sounds like some Harry Potter shit,” says the woman in the long black coat.
“Jilting of,” says Gloria, snapping another picture. “Granny Weatherall? Been a while, since you been in high school?” The woman on the couch snorts up a laugh, sits up, hefting her cane. “How about,” she says, pointing the wide rubber foot of it out, toward the cavernous space beyond, “this building,” the boxes, equipment, the bulks of whatever it is under tarps shoved off to either side, stacked in the stalls that one by one march down the long high walls, “the history,” soaked in soft grey light depending from up under the rafters, the windows there scrubbed clean of filth, scraped clear of paint, “a name should honor that.”
“It was a warehouse for vegetables,” says Gloria.
“A farmers’ market,” says the woman on the couch, “built by Italian immigrants, working together. Cooperatively.”
“Snot Market,” says Gloria, “Grime Market, that didn’t work,” grabbing the next canvas, “Pus Market has a certain punch,” hauling it aside, “but Anna didn’t like any of those, and anyway it’s antique punk bullshit. Effluvial Plane I kinda liked, but that’s too, much, y’know?”
“How old are you?” says the woman all in black.
“Fuck you,” says Gloria. “That’s how old I am.”
“Gloria,” says Anna.
“No, fuck this,” snarls Gloria. “We got the space. We’re doing the thing. It’s gonna be epic. And you can either get on board, get your, people, involved,” the woman on the couch, clutching her purse, “you can write about it like you know what’s gonna happen,” the woman all in black, hands in her pockets, smirking, “or you can scramble to catch up after, like everyone else.”
“Ms. Thorpe, we must apologize,” says Anna, after a moment, but “No, no,” says the woman all in black, “tempers run hot and you let them out and that’s fine, and then you stop and you take a deep breath and you think. Maybe you do this, or maybe tomorrow you’re kicked out for squatting. You don’t – ”
“Hey, Anna!” says Gloria. “What’s the owner got to say, about us being here?”
“There are no objections,” says Anna, but Thorpe looks away, rolling her eyes. “I did my homework,” she says, lifting her little grey hat, “or I wouldn’t be here at all,” scratching her head, her dark hair short, swept back. “You’re Suzette Wilson, you’re Tom Wilson’s daughter, and I’m sorry for your loss, but the title to this pile is hardly as clear-cut as,” but Gloria’s saying, “This, this is my place,” as Thorpe says “that’s before we even get into the questions of insurance, and zoning, and inspections,” but Gloria’s shouting “S1! Last Thursday! The Teahouse! You think they waited around for fucking paperwork?”
Anna and the woman on the couch, watching them both, Gloria seething, Thorpe settling her hat on her head, “Well,” she’s saying, tucking her hands in the pockets of her coat, “S1 is street-legal now, yeah, and the Teahouse? That was in Sellwood? Long gone. And you have any idea how much the merchants on Alberta pay the city for extra cops?” A shrug, and that smirk warms to something more sympathetic. “You want to beg forgiveness instead of ask permission and I can respect that, but there’s this delicate balance. You gotta be big enough to get noticed, but you can’t be so big you get noticed, you know?” Looking out, over the cavernous space below. “And all this you want to do in a week.” Turning back, hands spread in a hapless shrug, a burble of sound, “I like you,” she says, “I do, I like the idea,” looking up. It sounds like someone’s singing up there.
Up there, up at the edge of the planks laid across the joists, up by the brief ladder bolted to the wall a couple of long bare legs kicked over and orange underpants, ee, ee-oh nor, the keening voice a grunt, doo da-da dee, doo da-da dee, down the ladder to the walkway up there, a wild mad cloud of white-gold hair, “and quickly was received, enthusiastically,” and Thorpe looks down, over at the paintings leaned, at the image on the enormous monitor. “Some say that it had more to do with her,” the singer’s making her way, hand on the railing, “improper sense of dress, than her talent, or her diligence,” opening a door up there, painted with letters that possibly once said Ranchers, or Gardeners, and closing it muffles her song. “I’m sorry,” says Anna, drawing back their attention. “It seems Marfisa forgot we were meeting this morning.”
“I’ve seen,” says Thorpe, “I’ve heard her, before.”
“Salt and Straw,” says the woman on the couch, but then, lifting a finger, “no, that’s the ice cream.”
“She kinda came with the place,” says Gloria. Up there a crash of water, flushing, that door opens, Marfisa’s stepping out, “Cartier Bresson!” she shouts. “Max Ernst, Paul Eluard, George Bataille,” as she’s making her way back along the wall above them. “Their misogyny really irritated her, but she wasn’t, she,” stopping, standing there, wavering a little, looking down at them. Absently scratching just beneath a breast, and sunlight flashing from the gold dust spangling her skin.
“I heard you play once,” says Thorpe, abruptly.
Her wide smile spreading, Marfisa tips back her white-gold head, “Lee, ee-oh nor!” she sings, reaching for the ladder. “Lee, ee-oh nor!” Climbing back up toward the makeshift floor above.
“Stone and Salt!” says the woman on the couch. “That was it.”

Ding the microwave, she opens the door of it, reaches in with a hot pad for a steaming pink mug that says Sophia & Dorothy & Blanche & Rose. In she dunks a purple octopus infuser, dandling its delicate chain a moment. Color blooms.
Out of the kitchen, across the living room, dark wood paneling, grey-green shag, shuff and snap of her slippers into a nook of a hall, too brightly lit. She nudges open a door left ajar, into a small dark room lit only by sunlight staining the edges of heavy curtains drawn, and almost entirely filled by a great wide bed. “I’ve brought tea,” she says, setting the mug on the nightstand in the corner. “Hey.” Sitting on the edge of the bed. “I called Reg,” she says, reaching along the margin of the thick dark comforter, and a gentle stroke for the blond head there, turned away. “Told him we’d need another week. He wasn’t happy, but hey. Fuck him.” Tucking a lock of her own hair, as blond, as straight, behind her ear. “Chrissie,” she says. “Chér.”
“I don’t want any tea.”
“Yeah, well,” says Ettie, and she gets to her feet with a sigh. “This would be why I stick with men. They can’t break your heart.”

The door swings open, for a moment all’s revealed, scarred floor and drifts of grit against the bar, peeling dimpled paint along the front of it and its cracked vinyl bumper, dust furring the bottles along the top shelf, the washed-out flyspecked neon lights, the bartender, spiky hair flared palely to a golden brown, hand up against the raw daylight, skinny arm festooned with shadowy tattoos, “Jacks?” says Jessie, blinking, but the light’s swallowed away as the door swings shut, and dimness closes about the warm neon, the sparkle of glass, the rattle of drums and a couple of jangled chords, bubbling bass, “Jackie?” says the bartender, his hair gone black. “Ah, naw. She ain’t here.”
“Oh,” says Jessie, in her puffy pink parka. “Sorry. I thought,” and she shakes her head, Americans were thus denied, someone’s singing, with the guitar and the drums, all right to travel to the other side. “She usually works mornings,” says Jessie. “Any idea when she’s in next?”
“No, see,” says the bartender, “I mean, she’s not here? Anymore?” Folding those skinny arms, leaning his elbows on the bar. “And we can’t be giving out people’s schedules, come on. Basic security.”
“I’m a friend,” says Jessie, and then, “I used to dance here? About a year, year and a half ago. Went by Rain?”
“If you’re a friend,” says the bartender, “I mean, she left, what, right after the holidays? Two, three months ago? So, I mean,” and he spreads his hands. “Want something to drink?”
“Where’d she go?” says Jessie.
“I don’t know, Eugene or something? But even if I did I couldn’t tell you, because, security, you know. Coffee? Anything?”
Betcha my life, there’d be no violence there, and she opens her mouth to speak but everything lights up again, washed out, as the door swings open, two women, raincoat, trench coat, gym bag and backpack, nodding to the bartender who waves hello as they head through empty tables past the empty little stage, toward the nondescript door back there. “How about Chilli,” says Jessie. “He back there?”
“He, naw, Chilli, we’re,” the bartender jumps as she walks away, “we’re under new management,” he calls after her, “so,” but there’s confusion by that nondescript door as it opens, those women stepping through around and past a man who’s stepping out, brown leather vest and rich red hair flopping from a widow’s peak, “I need you to,” the bartender’s saying. Jessie waves him off. “It’s Gaveston,” she says. “I know Gav.”
But Gaveston’s holding the door for someone else, a tall woman in a white track suit, short hair greenly yellow, and Jessie stops short, in the midst of the empty tables. “Chariot?” she says. The tall woman’s saying something to Gaveston, as she heads off past the little stage. “Iona?” says Jessie, and the tall woman looks over to see her there in pink. “Oh,” she says, stopped short. “Rain.”
“Is she here?” says Jessie. “The,” a cough, “the Princess? Uh, Queen? Ysabel?”
Iona’s shaking her head, “I’m merely here on her behalf,” she says, stepping away, but “Iona,” says Jessie, “Chariot, tell her, please,” and Iona stops, looks back. “Yes?” she says.
Jessie looks away. “Nothing,” she says. “Don’t tell her anything. Not even, that you saw me.”
“As you wish,” says Iona. Jessie’s still looking away, there among the empty tables. I’d want the giddy-up, the guitar jangles, I’d want to live it up, I’d want the pick-me-up, and the nondescript door back there’s now shut. The bartender isn’t behind the bar that flares, scoured once more by daylight as Iona opens the door outside. She steps through, the door swings shut, the darkness returns.

Nox Sea Raid say the letters punched in light across the screen. Choose Your Squad swooshes in below. A husky contralto says Set em up Sarge over the speakers, and the guy on the beanbag thumbs and clicks the controller in his lap, wheeling the view on the screen about a motley crew of centaurs, each stepping up to present arms as the focus settles fleetingly on them, uttering a catch-phrase, Rock an roll, rack em and pack em, they will fear my song, buzzbombs why’s it have to be buzzbombs, reportin for beauty! rock an rack em rock an pack em why’s it have to fear my rock an roll an reportin! “This is gonna suck,” says the guy on the beanbag, “I need more’n one tank for this.” Wrinkles about his eyes and gingery stubble along his jaw. “Whaddaya think,” he says, looking away from the screen, “would a Mixolydian,” but there’s nobody beside him, there’s a man headed away, over toward the grand dark staircase, dodging around a dark wood column, his sweater bulky, red, he’s looking up to the woman stopped there on the stairs, black trousers, a bowtie unclipped about her winged collar. “Long as he needs,” she’s saying, and “Oh,” says the guy on the beanbag, turning back to the screen, “Ellen’s home.” Clicking through the figures on the screen, rock an roll, reportin for beauty, they will fear, “The hell was he doing, wearing my shirt?” and the guy on the beanbag looks up again at that, the man in the red sweater a step or two up the stairs, and Ellen above him, maybe a shrug, “It looks better on him,” she’s saying, turning away. Why’s it have to be, says the centaur on the screen. Rack em!

2023.06.07 14:45 soggypete Same organisation, new role. How do I write my job spec and contract to get the most financial benefit?

I currently work at a privately-funded school and earn about 40k pa. I’ve recently been asked to work out of term time and get a new project going.
I’ve been given a lot of freedom in this and have been asked to write my own contract with a reasonable salary and to come up with a job description.
Likely I’ll add another 20k on to my salary but could feasibly add more. This is all very new to me. Usually I’m told what the salary is and there might be some wiggle room.
I’m conscious of the fact that I’ll be going over 50k pa for the first time and realise this will push me over the higher earnings threshold. It will also affect my child benefit. If my new salary is 60k then I doubt that there’s anything I can do to feasibly salary sacrifice 10k to get my under the threshold, but are there any things I can put in to the contract (that I am creating) to maximise my financial gain?
I’m in quite a good position to set myself up for the next few years in a new and prosperous position but do not want my lack of financial savvy to limit me here so any suggestions or advice would be really welcome.

2023.06.07 14:44 seriouslysosweet PGA Golf merges with LiV - Saudi owned. Impact to women

The merger of the PGA with the LiV in Saudi reflects men in control still choose money over women. Whether you are a golf fan or not, this merger reflects that Women’s rights are secondary to making money. Imagine any women working in the PGA - they likely won’t advance far in the organization and they’ll be told if you travel to Saudi you have to conform to Saudi’s repressive rules on women.
If money wins - what other organizations may sell out to authoritarian countries that put women or LGBTQ in a dangerous or inferior position?
Occasionally women play in the PGA. Now they have the handicap of a head scarf in their way if they are even allowed to play in the PGA.
The LGPA appears to not be part of the deal. The pay disparity was already significant between the PGA and LGPA. Now this organization is outside this merger.

2023.06.07 14:41 Low-Yam-9890 For the love of God, STOP PLANNING TO SEND A LONG LOVE LETTER TO YOUR EX

I see a ton of y’all planning to send love letters to your dumpers. LITERALLY DON’T DO IT. You type it out, you post it on here and then you ask “thoughts?” IT. WON’T. WORK. Your ex WILL NOT BE RECEPTIVE TO IT. And if they do, they’ll probably just say, “thanks, I appreciate it.” And then you try to find a deeper meaning into those four words and then ask for our opinions on what they mean. It means nothing. Literally, that’s it.
How do I know? I was in that position about 5 months ago, I would constantly send long letters and tell my ex that the door is always open for him to come back. All he said was leave me alone and called me annoying. Do you want your ex to say that to you as well? No. Just leave them alone. A love letter will not suddenly change their minds. Now I look back and I cringe at what I wrote.
Also, for the people who still have their exes on Instagram and asking for thoughts that they’re the first to view your story or whatever… surprise, IT MEANS NOTHING AS WELL!
And how do I know as well? Because I did the same. I posted on my story about being sad and eating out alone and all he did was view it, then I texted him about it to try to make him feel bad and he still didn’t care.
Seriously, if you’re gonna write that letter, put it in your notes. If you’re gonna post on your story and checking it immediately to see if your ex viewed it, just block them. I actually have one of my older exes from 10 years ago on social media and he’s always the first person to watch my stories, but it means nothing and I quite don’t care about it (we’re cool now), but in the end it still means nothing. He’s not asking me out or anything or wanting me back, at the end of the day, it means nothing.

2023.06.07 14:35 SnowBunnyBlue Dodge Grand Caravan 2015, A/C issue

So my minivan is having some AC issues and it’s booked in to a mechanic for next week. The a/c blows kinda cool on the driver’s side and just hot (outdoor temps?) on the passenger side. In the rear it appears to blow slightly coolish as well. The cool air it kinda could do was non-existent on the extreme hot days I had last week and it was the final straw.
After talking to some mechanics they said after checking to make sure there wasn’t a leak they could do a recharge BUT it is very typical for this vehicle to have a problem with the rear a/c and if so we could repair for big $$$ or cap it off for less $$ but still a fair bit.
So…. If we cap it off what does that mean for the rear? The rear has the ability to either control its own a/c temp and blower speed or I can control it from the front. If it is capped does it mean the rear can no longer control itself but I can still control and put cool air to the rear vents from the front controls? Or does it mean if using the a/c the rear just will not blow anything at all no matter which mode?
I’ve got kids and while I’ll be nice and cool up front and I suppose eventually the cool air will fill the whole cabin I just feel bad for them, summer be hot!
Just want to know what I’m agreeing to or if I need to figure out how to finance an expensive repair on a crap vehicle. Thanks!

2023.06.07 14:31 Una_gatita03 Gallbladder removed two days ago!

Haven’t posted here before but this page and everyone’s advice and stories was a huge support and helping force for me to get my gallbalder removed and I got a lot of positive tips from reading everyone’s posts so I wanted to say a collective thank you to the community :)!
I’m 22 female, curious to see if there are other people on the younger side who have had to get their gallbladder removed! I’ve had lots of general remarks from people that they’re not used to someone in the you get side having to go through a removal. I had two pretty back good back attacks end of February that landed me in the ER and I was highly recommended getting it removed, ended up waiting until after grad to get the deed done (exactly a week after I graduated such a lucky duck).
Anywho! I woke up from the surgery in a lot more pain than I anticipated, particularly a very persistent shooting pain on my right side that took a good amount of fentanyl and something else to ease down. I was in recovery for about four hours before I was able to sit up and change, the car ride back home was a pretty big haze and spend most of the day in bed. The hospital gave me a waist compressor that’s helped a lot when I’m walking around to keel everything feeling tight and my back straight, it definitely helped with reducing inflammation.
Yesterday was better, had a big energy bursts in the am and walked around, sat in the living room to watch tv, but lost steam by the afternoon and wasn’t able to last being out of bed much. My incisions were definitely more bothersome yesterday. I’ve been icing my stomach a lot with lots of cold gel pads my family got me. Very minimal eating since I haven’t been too hungry. Sitting up from bed has felt quite difficult but I’ve finally found an awkward roll over process that’s less painful.
I’m definitely going to try to get up more and wobble around extra today. Anyone have any tips for first week/ second week? I’m feeling a lot better, still some discomfort in the incisions but not super bad, haven’t been able to achieve any bowel movements (mostly because I’m scared it’ll hurt a lot, making any pushing pressure hurts my cuts and old gallbladder spot).
Sorry this is all just mainly unorganized ramble, I appreciate anyone who reads it and goodluck to all in whatever step of your gallbladder journey you’re in!

2023.06.07 14:26 Noblesse311 Character Concept [110]: HMS Conqueror (S48)

Royal Navy

Repeat Valiant/Churchill-class Nuclear-powered Attack Submarine (Submarine in-game)

The third and final ship of the Churchill-class (also known as the Repeat Valiants as it featured many internal improvements, but outwardly looked about the same as the preceding Valiant-class Nuclear-Powered Submarines) HMS Conqueror) was ordered on 9 August 1966 and was laid down at the Cammell Laird Shipyard at Birkenhead, at the time in the County of Cheshire, England, on 5 December 1967. She was launched on 28 August 1969 and commissioned into the Royal Navy on 9 November 1971, the final nuclear-powered submarine to be completed by Cammell Laird. (all future Royal Navy submarines would be exclusively built by Vickers Shipyard)
Conqueror’s career between commissioning in 1971 and the Falklands War in 1982 was largely uneventful, with the only thing of note being the replacement of her Type 2001 sonar array with a Type 2020 version and a Type 2026 towed array that could be let out and retrieved sometime in the late 1970s. It was also around this time that the sub would be captained by Cmdr. Chris Wreford-Brown.
Upon the outbreak of the Falklands War in April 1982, Conqueror would be among many British submarines that were deployed to the South Atlantic (including sister ship HMS Courageous), departing Faslane Naval Base in Scotland on 3 April, and arriving at the Falklands exclusion zone on 24 April, exactly three weeks later. She was tasked with scanning the area for Argentine shipping, in particular, Argentina’s light aircraft carrier ARA Veinticinco de Mayo (formerly HMS Venerable). On 30 April, Conqueror spotted the Brooklyn-class Light Cruiser ARA General Belgrano (formerly the USS Phoenix) sailing southwest of the Falklands outside of the exclusion zone. However, with 25 de Mayo approaching the islands from the north, the commander of the HMS Hermes task force, Rear Adm. John “Sandy” Woodward, fearing a pincer attack between the two ships, requested permission from his superiors to sink Belgrano. That permission, after some debate, would be granted by Adm. Sir John Fieldhouse and the order to engage was sent to HMS Conqueror, in the interim, Belgrano would retire from its attack vector and head west, a move that made later events incite controversy, although both Belgrano’s captain and the Argentine government would acknowledge that the attack was a legitimate act of war.
On 2 May, Conqueror would launch three Mark 8 torpedoes \1]) at Belgrano, with two of them striking the ship and exploding. Twenty minutes later, the cruiser was rapidly sinking and abandoned by her crew. General Belgrano was unable to send a mayday signal, due to electrical failure and poor visibility, which meant that the two escorting destroyers, ARA Piedra Buena (formerly Sumner-class USS Collett) and ARA Bouchard (formerly Sumner-class USS Borie) would not find out about Belgrano’s sinking until hours after the latter sank, taking 323 men with her. The sinking of the Belgrano was a notable one, as it was the second time since the end of World War II that a submarine sank an enemy warship \2]), but it was the first (and at the time of writing only) nuclear-powered attack sub to do the deed. The Bouchard was also believed to be hit by Conqueror’s third torpedo. Though Conqueror would not again fire her torpedoes in anger, having had to evade the efforts of the Argentine Air Force (FAA) to locate and sink the submarine, she would spend the remainder of the war helping the task force by using sophisticated monitoring equipment to track FAA aircraft. Belgrano’s sinking also shocked both the Argentine people and military junta, and contributed to the Argentine Navy’s role being significantly reduced for the remainder of the conflict, and in turn, contributed to Argentina’s defeat in the Falklands War.
After the war, HMS Conqueror would return to Faslane flying a Jolly Roger, a customary act of Royal Navy submarines after achieving a kill. Said Jolly Roger would feature an atom, a cross torpedo pattern, a dagger and the outline of a cruiser, representing Conqueror being an SSN, the weapon used for the sinking, the secretive nature in the operation and the hull type for the kill respectively. This banner can be found at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum in Gosport in South East England.
Her post war career would also see some notable moments. Later in 1982, Conqueror would take part in Operation Barmaid, an operation to raid and capture a Soviet passive towed scanner array that was towed by a Polish-flagged vessel. Conducted as a joint Anglo-American operation just outside Soviet territorial waters, the sub used cutters affixed to her bow to shear off the 3” (76mm) thick wire before silently returning to base on the Clyde. On 2 July 1988, Conqueror collided with the Dalriada, an Army Sail Training Association yacht. Its four crewmen would be rescued, but the yacht sank.
Conqueror was decommissioned on 2 August 1990, with the submarine’s periscope, captain’s cabin and main control panel joining her Jolly Roger at the Royal Navy Submarine Museum. At the time of writing, she is currently housed at Devonport, County Devon, one of twenty nuclear subs housed there by the Ministry of Defense awaiting final disposal.
\1]: While HMS Conqueror was equipped with the newer Tigerfish torpedoes, the Mark 8, a venerable design dating back to the interwar era, was far more reliable and used instead.)
\2]: The first instance would occur during the Third Indo-Pakistani War eleven years prior when PNS Hangor, a Daphné-class Submarine used by the Pakistani Navy, sank INS Khukri, a Blackwood-class Frigate in an instance that also marked the only instance to date of an Indian Navy warship sinking to enemy action since independence in 1947.)

A conqueror is a person who conquers.


Stat Spread:
As a nuclear powered submarine, Conqueror sports a superb Torpedo Stat (S), a decent HP stat compared to their WW2 counterparts (B) and a superb speed stat (A). As a Cold War submarine that has no guns, she has no firepower stat.


Conqueror (S48) could be best described as someone who has a Sugar-and-Ice Personality (or in Anime jargon, a Kuudere). On the outside, she is cold, aloof and professional, dedicated to her missions and largely keeps to herself. Once one gets to know her better, she shows herself to be more optimistic and warm, if a bit socially awkward.


Conqueror is depicted as a girl in her mid-teens with golden yellow hair tied in pig-tails that extend down to her elbows, and ruby red eyes. Her attire is largely inspired by the equipment utilized by the Special Boat Squadron (now known as the Special Boat Service) during the early 1980s, and in particular during the Falklands War. She wears a black skin-tight one-piece wetsuit that covers her entire body, with the cut offs being around her hands and halfway down to the calves of her legs. Among her equipment is a snorkel on her right shoulder, though not worn, and comes with a L9A1 Browning Hi-Power pistol in her left hand. In addition, Conqueror wears a red crystal around her neck in the shape and style of Phoenix’s tie at the end of her hair, symbolizing a prize for sinking her in the Falklands War.
Her rigging is largely the same as her submarine model, but functions as a one-man Submarine Delivery Vehicle for which she rides on top, with the control mechanism being on two handles on each side of the sail (akin to how I-56 operates her rigging)

This sub was suggested to me by u/A444SQ, I hope you enjoyed this rendition of Conqueror as I did making it.
The historical HMS Conqueror (or rather the last iteration of her) is a fascinating ship and one that I figure would be deserving of its UR spot given its single defining achievement. But this would also be my first UR submarine (at least my first not named Alicorn which is OP even by Ace Combat standards) and with nothing to base it on, it's difficult and might actually be a bit underpowered by comparison. It is what it is I suppose.
As always, if you want to suggest a ship or retrofit in the future, please leave it in the comments below, you can also reach me via DM's to make your suggestions as well. We're returning to Operation Weissenburg next time with Tier VIII Battlecruiser, a design dating to March 1918 but was depicted by WeeGee to be developed in 1944, with their take on Schnelle Großekampfschiffe 4531, KMS Zieten.

2023.06.07 14:26 Buyyours How can you figure out how much used heavy equipment is worth

How can you figure out how much used heavy equipment is worth
How can you figure out how much used heavy equipment is worth?
Whether you’re buying or selling, knowing how much secondhand heavy equipment is worth is critical to a successful transaction. Thousands of firms are in one of two positions. The first scenario involves a company that no longer requires a piece of heavy equipment and wants to sell it but is unsure of its true value. In the second situation, a company wishes to purchase heavy equipment without paying more than is necessary. Here’s a fast equipment value guide with all the details you’ll need, including how to assess the worth of secondhand heavy equipment.
Understanding Equipment’s Fair Market Value
Estimating the value of secondhand equipment is not as simple as it may appear. Sure, you can look on eBay or other sites to see what similar items are selling for, but that doesn’t tell you what they’re actually selling for or how long it takes for the equipment to sell in general. Getting the true worth of secondhand heavy equipment, whether it’s machine tools or tractors, is a little more difficult and necessitates insider information from someone who works in the selling of that equipment on a regular basis. Finding a used machinery dealer that is actively selling similar equipment is often the best approach to determine the true value of your machinery or equipment. In contrast to someone’s internet asking price, the dealer will be able to tell you what the market worth is today. When determining the value of, or making an offer on, your heavy equipment and machinery, they will evaluate market conditions, similar equipment available, previous auction sales, and a variety of other criteria.
What Factors Influence Heavy Equipment Prices?
Equipment values are influenced by a variety of important elements. It’s not easy to figure out how much used heavy equipment costs, but it’s a lot easier once you know what to look for.
First and foremost, you should research the typical lifespan of the piece of machinery you’re interested in. In other words, it refers to the length of one’s life. Depending on the type of equipment you’re contemplating, this is sometimes measured in years and other times in hours. Some manufacturers are known for producing high-quality equipment that can be anticipated to endure a long period, whereas lower-quality equipment wears out and breaks down much more quickly. As a result, if the piece of equipment you’re considering was badly constructed and has been in use for more than ten years, it might not be a suitable investment. On the other hand, if the machinery is in good condition and has only been used for 5 years, it could be a terrific deal.
While the predicted equipment longevity is significant, it is not the only factor to consider. If overused or exposed to the weather, even the best-built gear will break down or operate poorly. Look for indicators of environmental (exposure) damage or abuse from incorrect or excessive use when inspecting the equipment. If either is discovered, the value of the machinery plummets. The value of heavy equipment is complex, and it should be established with care. The following are some of the most common elements that influence values:
  • Age
  • Availability of like Equipment
  • Condition
  • Continued Support/Parts availability
Finally, remember to factor in the worth that thing will have to you once it is in your possession and performing the function it is capable of. You may choose to spend a little more than the market for a system that is widely available or close to your location because the benefits may greatly outweigh the expenditures.
Now that you’ve learned about some of the most significant aspects of used heavy equipment pricing, it’s time to look at how to calculate fair market value.
How do you figure out how much used heavy equipment costs?
When searching to buy secondhand heavy equipment, you’ll want to know what the fair market value is. If there are no mitigating conditions, fair market value refers to what someone would normally pay for the same object. For example, if you urgently require a forklift and there is only one available used forklift in your area, and the seller is aware of this, they may be able to offer it for a higher price. Fair market value is an estimate that refers to the equipment’s natural value and is based on the assumption that there are no extenuating conditions. Knowing the fair market value is vital if you don’t want to overpay, as you would have anticipated.
How can you figure out what an item’s fair market value is? By contacting a certified equipment appraiser, abbreviated as ‘CEA’. A professional appraiser is the best person to determine the worth of heavy equipment. Certified equipment appraisers have years of experience and know-how to accurately evaluate used machinery using all of the tools available, including past auctions, independent sales, and market demand. That is if a seller claims a piece of old equipment is worth $70,000 but a professional equipment appraiser claims it is worth closer to $50,000, trust the evaluator.
Helpful Hints
If you’re seeking to sell some secondhand heavy equipment and want to obtain the greatest price, there are a few things you can do to improve your chances.
First and foremost, you should make a concerted effort to clean the equipment and make it pristine. Clean the area surrounding it as well; the cleaner your workspace is, the better you are believed to care for your equipment, and therefore the more valuable it will appear, making any flaws less destructive to its perceived value.
You should also film the device in action and upload it to YouTube. Demonstrations are preferable to videos since they may be viewed at any time.
Make sure you understand the true worth of your machinery and the factors that influence that value. It’s critical to understand that in order to negotiate properly and win, you’ll need to know how low you can go in terms of price without harming yourself.
If you’re buying a machine or heavy equipment, you’ll need to know the same thing, because any request for a price reduction or concession should be accompanied by substantive reasoning, such as “Well, the factory no longer supports this model” or “This control is obsolete and must be upgraded before it fails in production to avoid costly downtime,” and so on. Whatever your justification for requesting a price reduction, it should be supported by a thorough understanding of the equipment and market value, never by statements like “Well, that’s just what I believe it’s worth.”
Finally, whether you’re buying or selling, the most critical element is that you interact with a qualified and reputable machine dealer.

2023.06.07 14:26 Low-Yam-9890 For the love of God, STOP PLANNING TO SEND LOVE LETTERS TO YOUR EX

I see a ton of y’all planning to send love letters to your dumpers. LITERALLY DON’T DO IT. You type it out, you post it on here and then you ask “thoughts?” IT. WON’T. WORK. Your ex WILL NOT BE RECEPTIVE TO IT. And if they do, they’ll probably just say, “thanks, I appreciate it.” And then you try to find a deeper meaning into those four words and then ask for our opinions on what they mean. It means nothing. Literally, that’s it.
How do I know? I was in that position about 5 months ago, I would constantly send long letters and tell my ex that the door is always open for him to come back. All he said was leave me alone and called me annoying. Do you want your ex to say that to you as well? No. Just leave them alone. A love letter will not suddenly change their minds. Now I look back and I cringe at what I wrote.
Also, for the people who still have their exes on Instagram and asking for thoughts that they’re the first to view your story or whatever… surprise, IT MEANS NOTHING AS WELL!
And how do I know as well? Because I did the same. I posted on my story about being sad and eating out alone and all he did was view it, then I texted him about it to try to make him feel bad and he still didn’t care.
Seriously, if you’re gonna write that letter, put it in your notes. If you’re gonna post on your story and checking it immediately to see if your ex viewed it, just block them. I actually have one of my older exes from 10 years ago on social media and he’s always the first person to watch my stories, but it means nothing and I quite don’t care about it (we’re cool now), but in the end it still means nothing. He’s not asking me out or anything or wanting me back, at the end of the day, it means nothing.

2023.06.07 14:25 baldthrowaway4u My unimportant hot take: I love this game, but…

…there are still some pretty fair issues to me.
The first issue are dungeons. Yes, there are dungeons in TotK, but they really aren’t meaningfully different from BotW besides having different color schemes/architecture and having unique bosses.
The dungeons themselves really could have been Divine Beasts with how short and simple they were. I completed all dungeons within about 15 minutes each.
Compounding this issue, in some ways I think TotL regressed from BotW in this regard. The ability to build inside the dungeon, climb walls, use the rocket shield, etc actually made these dungeons much easier than their predecessor. In many cases, you could completely bypass intended puzzles and progression (how do I get up THERE?) by building some contraption to just get you there.
I understand the counterpoint: the game is intended for you to solve the puzzles your own way. And that’s cool. But the dungeons are so simple it saps the life out of it.
Issue number two for me is difficulty. This starts with the food mechanic. I think you can carry something like 50 food items with you. This trivializes any potential challenge. Don’t have enough hearts to survive a hit from that super strong enemy? Either eat a defense +3 food or overfill your hearts over and over.Have enough hearts/defense but don’t understand the combat mechanics yet for this boss? That’s ok, just eat food every time you take damage and bang your head against the wall until it dies.
In my unimportant opinion, food should have been treated like in games like WoW, where you had to be out of combat to eat. Enemies clearly have aggro, so this would have been an easy way to increase the challenge. You only have xx minutes before this buff runs out and you have to survive.
Faeries are still a thing to revive upon death (should be limited in number) and I think you should get 1-2 potions to use in combat (collectible bottles should be a thing for elixirs, imo)
There only real issue this would cause is with needing to use environment resisting foods that run out during combat, etc, but that’s remedied by just wearing armor. Maybe other ways to solve it like increasing the amount of time food provides protection from environment.
Then, because of the lack of boss scaling, combat in dungeons with the final bosses can be rather boring. Awesome, I’m taking 1/6 of the bosses HP every swing. Fun.
Dungeons should have scaled with your hidden level.
Anyway, I’m sure I’ll get downvoted to hell here. The game is still a firm 10/10 for me, GotY, all that jazz. But I do think there are some fundamental issues. These issues really cheapened the whole story progression for me, the dungeons felt worse than Divine Beasts, and I really am starting to miss traditional dungeons more and more.

2023.06.07 14:11 GioVChad Kid buu is a mistake

I hate this character for two reasons
  1. He is so godamn annoying and broken . I've been using him a lot and he's broken to the point where I am confident enough that he can turn the tide whenever and the stupid part about it is HE DOES. I genuinely feel that he is so oppressive yet dumb to play to the point where rosé's gauge and damage build up feel slow compared to the instant gratification that his green card provides. People might say "oh don't use him" but the thing is that I like meta and like playing PvP and besides in rating match it's either you use the unfun oppressive units or people use it against you. You can't expect someone to not use their new,flashy characters and no-one should be shamed for that decision, what is needed rather is for the developers to understand that these ultras make the game unfun for those who get them and those who don't.
  2. He is BOOTY CHEEKS aesthetics wise. His art has been memed on and discussed already but I want to add that all his animations feel rushed. First of, his art doesn't make any sense (now,I don't remember DBZ that accurately so I could be forgetting about the scene being referenced). He starts by blowing up the planet,which is the better part of his art,but then,while he's floating in space, sees US the player and rushes towards us (?) Lik what !?? Even if there's a scene depicting these same events, there was surely much better source material to draw inspiration from. Secondly, apart from his blue card which I find pretty cool, his blasts are a copy paste of the LL kid buu, his green card feels like the same green as as LL kid buu apart from the neck crack (and the knock back effect obvs) and his ult, even though I know the scene it references, I still think it should have had a bit more. Lastly his unique gauge is stupid and I don't know why they thought of giving him this type of gauge. They could have give him imo an evasion unique like UI because buu is seen multiple times manipulating his physique to doge attacks. Why they didn't do that, Idk. They might want to give evasion uniques to ui (🤷) . Compared to rosé which is no less annoying there is no person that can say that they didn't give 110% regarding his animations and voice lines.
Tldr: Kid buy is bullshit in every aspect and his animation are garbo. Overall a clear example of balancing issues and rushed release.

2023.06.07 13:59 Xravi I would like to invest in another company outside of the USA who are looking for startup capital.

I’m a young entrepreneur who is doing fairly well for himself. I grew up on food stamps and my parents worked their ass off to provide for us. This was the fuel and drive to give a better life to my family, and to ultimately take care of my parents. It kills me to see how little the school systems in America place emphasis on business education, and if you can get through that, societal norms make it difficult to break into entrepreneurship.
I read a post recently about a guy who helped a person in Tanzania buy his first espresso machine to get his business off the ground. I’m infatuated by this idea and I’d love to take it one step further by investing fully into someone else’s company who thinks they have a killer idea but doesn’t have the resources or connections necessary to grow or scale their business. You’ll be required to have a business plan, proof of scalability and growth, personal experience in the industry, market validation, and it must provide a net positive for your community. I realize this may sound predatory but I’m happy to sign a NDA and Non-Compete but genuinely looking to partner with someone who had similar life circumstances, grew up or currently lives in oppression, and has dreams of becoming a successful entrepreneur.
