2023.03.25 01:19 sodomy 35 [M4F] Georgetown/Washington DC/Surrounding areas - Dominant Social Chameleon ISO stimuli

An author's note: Please read this post in it's entirety before you message me, I've added a follow up to answer most of the basic questions I've been asked over the last 3 years since I started posting my AD.
All my previous iterations were mostly about what role I could fulfill; and while this mostly still is true, walking amongst the elites the last week has opened my eyes... I'm looking for a complacent trophy to put on full display. Arriving to this city I already had a deep... Passion for power, governance; and just over all domination -- Washington DC fulfills my lust, and thirst for both political power, and monetary gain. Now I want, not need an adequate toy to share this experience with. Before I was playing conservatively; not anymore,
I've allowed my ego to rampant and on auto-pilot; thus far everything is according to design.
I'm as amoral as they come; I will eviscerate my way to the top of the governmental, and corporate ladder(s). I'm a retired hacker that has realized my full potential is being squandered away, so I'll begin to kick in the doors of 3 letter agencies until recruit me; or I die trying.
I've come to the conclusion that you need to make an impression with these sort of things, so I'm going to just let my words flow freely. So here we go:
Height: 5'7
Weight: 175, could stand to lose a few lbs to get my abs back.
Eyes: Brown eyes.
Hair: Long curly brown hair (think Slash Rose's illegitimate son.)
Race: White.
Ethnicity: Hispanic (Cuban.)
Languages: Spanish, English, Sign-language.
Profession: Network Engineer in NW DC.
Religion: Agnostic.
A little about me:
I like long walks on the beach, sunsets, oh did I mention that I'm a sadist, and that I'm utterly insane?
I've been called a silver tongued devil; Quick witted, charismatic, with just the right amount of sarcasm.
Hobbies: Not being bored, it's a lot harder than it sounds. I enjoy learning/conversing about The Universe/space, science, and technology. I was quite nomadic in my 20s, having visited two different countries, lived in over 17 states, visited over 38.
Music: I'm more of a rhythm of the beat type of person vs. lyrics, but generally I've found myself to enjoy electronica. Definitely like a lot 80s synth pop, but again, this is just the preference, not really against the rest of the genres.
Shows: Billions, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, Board Walk Empire, Billions, Rome, Deadwood, Halt and Catch Fire, The Sopranos, South Park, Mad Men, Dexter,
Movies: Beetlejuice, Brain Scan, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb,
"What are you looking for?"
Well I can encompass a Master, a Dominant, or a Daddy, so it's really what can I provide for you?1
"How is such a thing possible?" Antisocial Personality Disorder (3.4 for those interested.)
"Why was it necessary to mention that?" To give credence as to how I can, and have been all aspects of Dominance.
"Monogamy or polyamory?" Favoritism towards polyamory, but seeing as it's rare to find multiple partners that allow me to explore my more sadistic side without tension, and/or drama, I'd go with monogamy if the individual allowed me to be depraved.
Preference in the following order: Slave, submissive, little (I will explain further below.)
Kinks: Sadism, TPE, CNC, bondage, degradation, humiliation, knife play, rope play, rape/abduction play, choking, impact play, spanking, hair pulling (I think you get the idea by now, there are still far more, here's a more comprehensive list.)
Experience: 15+ years.

So about that whole preference thing, as I am on the ASPD spectrum I'm capable of fulfilling whatever role(s) are required of me to get what I want. So let me explain further, I'm openly telling you far ahead of time that I lack emotions and empathy, with the hopes that me giving you the illusion of whatever it is you require, will be met with reciprocation of the kinks we can agree upon. This is where the waters get muddied for little's, I can definitely treat you like the princess you want to be, without all the douche-baggery you'll deal with as people tugging at your heart strings. Plenty of people around here pretend to be Daddies and will leave you absolutely heartbroken. Tired of games? Tired of bullshit? Well here's someone willing to give you all the care, attention, and affection you desire without any hassles.
"Why would you want to be a Daddy Dom given your lack of emotions, and empathy?"
I am a social chameleon. I've been perfecting my art for the majority of my life, I like the challenge. I like to learn people and, give them what they want with the idea that I get what I want in the end, it's called a social transaction. I know what respect is, and I believe I need to write a little about this. Once we've discussed clear limits, and terms, they shall not be crossed, it's counter productive for me to lose my play thing(s). I can be fiercely territorial of all my possessions, that includes the individual(s) I'm involved with, what is mine will be protected, whether you're a slave, a submissive, or a little.If you want someone to completely treat you like trash, I'm more than willingly to oblige, if you need a savior and a protector, well I can do that too. I'm able to encompass what is required; a means to an end.
"What are you looking for in a submissive?" I'd like it to extend outside of the bedroom, but if it doesn't, whatever, I'm not going to repeat myself, so hopefully you've read this in it's entirety.
"What are you looking for in a slave?" Mostly aesthetics, and objectification. Of course I'd expect loyalty, servitude, and there's a plethora more, but I don't feel I need to be too descriptive on this part.
Now that I've written a fucking novel about myself, let's get to you....
Age: I prefer them younger (18+) , but have dated women as old as 45; generally if I find you attractive, I won't care.
Height: the shorter the better, but I've dated women taller than myself, not a deal breaker.
Weight: I'd like someone on the smaller side, a few extra pounds will be acceptable, but no one overweight please, just not my thing.
I will list things below in order of preference, not necessarily a disqualifier. (This is only opinion, not a rating system.)
Race: White, but as long as I'm attracted I won't care, I don't discriminate.
Ethnicity: N/A read above.
Language(s): The more the merrier, accents are a huge plus, whether a southern drawl, or other.
Religion: I'm completely open to allowing you to practice whatever you'd like, just don't expect me to participate; I can be respectful of your beliefs, as long as you're respectful of mine, I am a man of science, The Universe is my religion (so to speak.)
Eyes: Blue, green, hazel, brown (If you have Heterochromia iridum you move to the front of the line, I like mutations.)
Hair: The longer the better, no preference as to style, as for color: I prefer true blondes, redheads, dirty blondes, and then brown.
Tattoos: Sure, whatever, as long as it's not overwhelming or flat out tacky, in this day in age it's harder to find someone with none, so as the trend follows above.
Piercings: Depends, some people can pull off septum piercings, but I personally dislike them, so if it compliments your facial features, sure why not. But there is definitely a breaking point where it becomes overwhelming and you just look like Hellraiser.
Education: Strong preference towards educated women, this does not necessarily mean academics, open to all.
Profession: No preference, but I do tend to like women in psychology (I have my reasons.)
Personality: If I have to learn "your" pronouns, or apologize for my "white male privilege" you can fuck right off; I don't care about politics.
Children: Strong preference in favor of not having them, unless we never intend to meet, or you don't expect a level of commitment from me to them, then I don't readily care, non-factor. To explain a tad bit, it isn't that I can't, I just would rather not raise children, I have too many plans in life that children would derail, maybe later.
If you're interested in communicating further, I prefer talking on these platforms and in this order: Discord, WhatsApp, Reddit Chat\, Skype, Kik,* open to other forms of contact.
\Reddit Chat isn't the same thing as their mailing system, just an FYI.*
Go ahead and shoot me a message, I'm waiting.

An update:
Well just to filter some things out, since I get this so many times... I will not be putting a big editorial process to this update(I say this now, after already re-reading, and editing a minimum of 5 times; I'm a slave to my own perfectionism,) so if you mostly have questions about me, ASPD, and things of the like, read this before you message me.

While I absolute love to talk about myself because I'm just such a narcissistic-hedonist, I also do get bored of repeating myself, even if it is a new person. As such read everything in it's entirety before you message me, as I'm going to entertain less, and less messages about me, and not what I'm seeking, I'd rather focus on only replying to potential partners, and absolutely nothing else, that being said if anything I have not covered in this update, or post still burns an answer from you, by all means message me.

"Were you formally diagnosed?"
I get asked about this A LOT, I'm not going to go into very many details, suffice it to say, yes, but it's been labeled as a misdiagnosis, all you need to know is I score high, and I do the things you'd expect, the pyromania, the violence that is actually associated at early age, the works, I'm not comfortable giving you more beyond that, and I will not be entertaining questions about my personal life, maybe a partner could ask me those questions, but I'm not letting you in my head, that's my game, not the other way around :).
Please do your own research beyond this point, it's borderline laziness how often I keep getting asked about this.

"Why are you so open about it(ASPD)?"
Isn't it obvious? A lot of you can't fathom why someone with ASPD would just openly come out, and admit to people, well I guess I really should've brushed up on this when I first made my post, or at least go into a far more descriptive detail than I had originally, so here goes:

If I'm ever to lead a sort of a long term relationship based on trust, and honesty, just how in the HELL do you expect me to explain this to you ever so casually? It's best to show your cards in the beginning, this is my own baggage, or some form there of.

There's two reasons I'm choosing to do this online, and vehemently under anonymity; 99% of you will be irrelevant to me, 99% of you will never meet me, it's just that simple, ergo why wouldn't I just preface my entire description as such, and as brutally honest as possible? Secondly I do not want a partner whom I need to continue to wear a mask for, I want to be me, the real me, the good, the bad, and the ugly.

What I find the most is women that fetishize the entire ordeal, that's all fine and dandy, but it does show just a lack of understanding about what APSD is as a whole, and to be perfectly blunt, you're wasting my time, I don't need to feed into your lonely thrill romance you spun in your head from watching true crime dramas. More often than not, this what happens, spare us the role-playing, I'm just not that bored.

One clear distinction I'd like to make, so I can stop getting asked about it, we DO have empathy, it's just not how YOU experience empathy. Think of a light switch, by default most of the population's is on, ours is off by default, and furthermore we have the ability to turn it on, and off. Yes, it is that simple, yes we use it for manipulation, now stop asking me about this, it's boring to repeat this.

Boredom, rage. This is what I'm capable of in the dark, empathy off. I'm constantly seeking stimuli, if you notice by actually looking through my posts, I've moved a ton of times, and always national parks... New atmosphere, new adventures, new dangers, you know, the shit that gets your heart pumping, adrenaline. This is my favorite drug, this is the high I constantly chase to kill the boredom. Rage is just self explanatory, my defaults are animalistic.
I am fully capable of experiencing all emotions, it's just for the most part, because I don't want do, I don't allow myself to.

For the longest time I told myself who cares if I burn bridges in my wake, I'm building a highway in its place. Mostly still true, and I absolutely use it on a daily basis for survival, I must stress, and emphasize survival, here is why; I'm human, like the rest of you, what do you do on a daily basis, if not find means, and ways to survive, and entertain yourself? I know no other way other than to use people to my advantage, I minimize the damage where I can, and move about my daily existence, guilt, and worry free about doing any wrong, an argument could be made that we all use each other in some weight, or capacity, and that's good enough for me.

I'm sure by now you're probably wondering what the hell any of that has to do with anything, it's simple if the point flew over your head, again. I'm tired of manipulating people, using them, abusing them, discarding them, I didn't grow a conscious I'm not "growing" as a person, but much more likely, I'm just bored of the routine, or the process, which has become the symphony of my life.

I by no means ever want to experience this love you all chase like Alice clumsily falling down the rabbit hole. I've seen it so much in my life it's downright pathetic, and I actually feel bad for those of you that have such strong emotions, see empaths. You're slaves to these emotions, you let people use and manipulate you, you've been hurt, and had your heart ripped from your chest, and it feels like you no longer have purpose, lacking direction, and meaning in life. I merely know this from generally observing humans for most of my natural born life. I'm more than happy to remain the way I have always been, and never wish to experience emotions in the way you do, I find it to be an advantage, one I can apply to more important things in life, like the pursuit of knowledge.

I hope the psych nerds will now stop asking me these questions, I've paid my dues.

My preferences, are just that, a list of my preferences, at no point in any of my writing did I say I was prejudice between one thing, or that I show favoritism. I merely made a chart listing some of the attributes that I myself, personally find to be significant to me, but that isn't to say, or detract from other things. It's the equivalent of asking me if I prefer Metallica, or Megadeth; well I'm going to say I prefer one over the other, but I enjoy both, and the genre as a whole, the genre being women in this case. I enjoy women for my own personal entertainment, and amusement -- which makes it all the more hilarious to me when I get called a misogynist.
so please spare me all your comments, and messages telling me that it's so "intimidating", if my post intimidates you, what can I really even begin to say about that? It doesn't sound like we'd be compatible, or much less you'd be able to accept me as a person, in any case this is a personal issue.

"You Need Help!"
I know what the help is, they just remind you repeatedly that your actions have consequences, they do not prescribe a medication for this, just therapy, and I know enough already to check myself, it really is that easy.
"To My Adoring Fans"
You call me an edge-lord, cringe, and a wide range of inane insults, that truly don't phase me, since I get a lot of these messages, I thought I'd give you my rebuttal; just so you know I sleep naked so that anyone that doesn't like me, can kiss my ass - feel free to visit anytime!
P.S.S: I now operate, function, and walk amongst the elite of the nation; I see my kind everywhere, this is what Rome must of felt like in it's heyday; Cicero you clever bastard... I bid you all adieu -- and depart with this:
{"Το σύμπαν είναι αλλαγή. η ζωή μας είναι αυτό που την κάνουν οι σκέψεις μας.";}

2023.03.25 00:34 knightinthesky [Thank you] Thanks for the entertaining collection of random cards!

Thanks to everyone who replied to my request for random or leftover cards. I already received a lot of them, and I loved seeing what people had in their stashes!
u/mnjohn_ Are you a stamp collector? I really like the variety of stamps you put on your postcard. Also, it's fascinating that you run your own postcard business. What you said makes sense; people in the past had to send more mail since they didn't have other options. It's crazy how fast technology changes compared to other parts of society. Consumer tech changes especially quickly.
u/ritaalbertson I really like the beach theme of the card you sent. It has a very vacation-worthy background. I like going to the beach in the summer, so this card will remind me of it year-round! The card makes me feel more relaxed just looking at it.
u/primaryloon The card you sent is perfect as it is. Like you said, I think adding anything would take away from the beautiful red paper. The design is impressively high quality. Thanks so much for the handmade card!
u/jaimekj Your postcard was exactly the level of weird that I thinking of when I made my request. It's kind of funny that it says copyright 2006, since the content was probably already cringe-worthy back then. Thanks for the laugh!
u/maevethebrave I like your personalized address stamp! I'm glad you're considering doing your own request for random cards. If you do, I'll be happy to send something. It's a lot of fun to get a bunch of (generally entertaining) cards that you wouldn't necessarily expect.
u/sherlocklady What an absolutely stuffed envelope! The stickers you sent actually match my general aesthetic. I like the digital art style. The card itself is hilarious and a goldmine for comedy. I appreciate that you sent a nice Gettysburg card with the main one. I'll make sure to use it soon. I don't actually do card requests much, but I'm down to exchange cards for some event in the future.
u/travel4me22 Your card was surprisingly relevant for me, since I graduated in the recent past! It was nice to get a coincidental graduation gift. I have to say, your personalized address stamp is impressive. Thanks for the very cute unicorn and bear stickers!
u/ashnetta Thanks for the FIVE (5) St. Patrick's Day and spring themed postcards! I really liked the grinning and dancing leprechauns. Perfect timing for the holiday, too!

2023.03.25 00:22 the_financialist01 Cooking Disaster Turned Viral Sensation: How My Chicken Alfredo and Hungry Cat Became Internet Famous

I hope everyone's doing well and staying safe during these strange times. Speaking of strange times, have y'all ever had one of those moments where you're doing something totally normal, and then suddenly it turns into something completely ridiculous? I'll never forget the time I was trying to be all adult-like and make myself a nice dinner. I had decided to make some chicken alfredo (fancy, I know) and had all my ingredients out on the counter. I had my chicken breasts thawing, my pasta boiling, and was starting on the alfredo sauce. Now, I'm not the most skilled cook in the world, but I had made alfredo sauce before and it had turned out pretty well. So I'm stirring away, adding in the ingredients, when suddenly I notice that the sauce is starting to thicken up...a lot. Like, I'm stirring and stirring but it's just getting thicker and thicker. At this point, I'm starting to panic a little bit. I don't want to ruin my dinner, but I also don't want to waste all these ingredients. So I do what any sensible person would do in this situation...I start googling "why is my alfredo sauce so thick". After a few minutes of scrolling through forums and recipe websites, I come across a post that mentions cornstarch as a thickening agent. And then it hits me...I had used cornstarch instead of flour! Now, normally this wouldn't be a huge deal. But the thing about cornstarch is that it thickens things up real quick, and doesn't really let go once it's got a hold. So there I am, with a pot full of chicken alfredo that's more like chicken cement. At this point, I'm pretty frustrated. I'm hungry, I'm tired, and I'm covered in sauce. But then, out of nowhere, my cat jumps up onto the counter and starts licking at the pot of alfredo. And that's when it hits me...this is my moment. I grab my phone and start filming as my cat goes to town on the chicken cement. I add some goofy music in the background, and voila! My very own cooking show is born. I posted the video on YouTube, and to my surprise, it went viral. People loved the combination of a cooking disaster and a hungry cat. Before I knew it, I was being interviewed by local news stations and invited to cooking competitions. So there you have it, folks. Sometimes, even the most frustrating moments can turn into something hilarious and unexpected. And hey, if all else fails, just add a cat to the mix. Thanks for reading, and stay silly!

2023.03.25 00:13 Parking-Cauliflower 23[M4F] Italy/Anywhere Looking for someone to read poems to, talk romance and read bedtime stories

Do you ever find yourself searching for someone to share your evenings with? Someone to banish the ghosts and keep you company during the night? You cherish your solitude but sometimes, you can't help but feel like you're missing out on something special?
Perhaps we're in similar boat then, I feel like searching in void but maybe this time it'll be different
I'm not looking for perfection, but for something even more valuable: a genuine, kind-hearted partner who will stand by my side through life's ups and downs.
I believe that when you share your life with someone, the joys are multiplied and the sorrows are lessened. With a sincere and supportive partner, life's challenges become more manageable, and the triumphs are even sweeter.
I know this might seem like a long shot - finding my soulmate on Reddit - but hey, the very existence of the universe was once thought to be impossible, and yet here we are, right? :p
A little about myself
• Appearance wise: Black hair, Dark brown eyes, 5'11, slim-built and a complexion that is fairly fair :D - a testimony to my mixed heritage and diverse cultural background.
• While I'm currently studying at university, I'm already dreaming of what comes next. One of my biggest goals is to backpack across Europe – the idea of exploring new cultures and experiencing everything the continent has to offer is incredibly exciting to me. And who knows – maybe I'll even meet some amazing people along the way!
• I'm all about living in the moment and seizing opportunities when they arise. That's why I'm totally down for spontaneous road trips – there's nothing quite like hitting the open road and seeing where the journey takes you. Of course, I'll need to be stable enough to make it happen, but I'm willing to work hard to make it a reality.
• As a person, I'm deeply passionate and love with my whole heart - to the point where it might make you feel like you're swimming in a sea of rainbows! I believe in creating heaven on earth for myself and those around me.
• Family is incredibly important to me, and I can't wait to start my own someday. Whether it's through adoption or having biological children, I'm open to both ideas – what matters most is finding the right person to share my life with. I can't wait to build a home filled with love, laughter, and lots of memories.
Interest wise:
• I love to stay active and enjoy participating in engaging activities such as hiking, bicycling, skating , volleyball, and video games. Whether it's a competitive match or a casual game.
• On the weekends, I have two moods: adventure or relaxation. Sometimes, I'll pack a bag and hit the trails for a hike or explore a new restaurant/city. Other times, I'll settle in for a cozy binge-watch of a new Netflix series or indulge in a self-care day to recharge my batteries.
• I'm a passionate reader, and I love immersing myself in books that challenge my thinking. I have a particular interest in art, psychology, philosophy, and poetry – these subjects have always fascinated me and inspired me to see the world in new ways.
• I'm always down for a good laugh and love to find joy in the simple things in life. Memes and funny reels always make me smile, and I enjoy exchanging them with friends as a way to brighten up our day and reminisce about shared experiences. Whether it's a hilarious cat video or a relatable meme that reminds us of something we've been through.
• While I don't have any niche hobbies, I'm always up for trying new things. Whether it's skydiving, trying exotic cuisine, or attending a paint-and-sip class, I'm always game for a new adventure.
What I value in a potential partnership
• I value vulnerability and raw emotions, they are at the heart of what it means to be human. I understand that opening up can be difficult, especially when it comes to matters of the heart but I can assure you that I would never judge or shame you for doing so. In fact, it only makes me respect and admire you more for being your authentic self, even when it's hard.
• If you're somone who's on the cold side and have a hard time showing affection and care, chances are we'll not get along as I'm more of an emotional person.
• Communication is absolutely everything to me, if you're the kind of person who isn't willing and able to communicate openly and honestly about your thoughts, feelings, and needs with me than chances are we won't get along, without this foundation of trust and transparency, it's difficult to build a healthy, lasting relationship.
• Respect for each other's individuality: While it's important to share common interests and values with our partners, it's also important to respect each other's individuality and unique perspectives. This means recognizing that we don't have to agree on everything to have a strong and loving relationship.
• Mutual support and encouragement: A partnership where we both feel supported and encouraged by each other. This means celebrating each other's successes, providing emotional support during difficult times, and being there for each other through thick and thin.
• Healthy conflict resolution: conflict is inevitable in any relationship, but it's important to approach disagreements in a healthy and respectful way. This means actively listening to each other's perspectives, seeking to understand each other's needs and feelings, and working together to find a mutually agreeable solution.
If you came this far, please write to me about who you are and what you are looking for, what made you reach out and anything else you'd like to include :)

Intended Major(s): International Affairs and Economics
Standardized Testing
List the highest scores earned and all scores that were reported.
List all extracurricular involvements, including leadership roles, time commitments, major achievements, etc.
Keeping this intentionally vague. These also are just the highest positions I attained and I worked on these cyclically rather than all at once. At most, I had important leadership roles in 2-3 organizations at once.
  1. Chairman of a youth leadership organization's youth board; worked on international civic project development.
  2. Club President of my school's Model UN club; took our team from basically nothing to a top competitor on our regional circuit.
  3. Policy Director for youth-led civic group; created a couple lobbying campaigns for civics education
  4. Research Assistant at this small political group; didn't even get published lol
  5. Intern with this digital asset regulator; most did policy research, but had a great time!
  6. Lobbyist with a youth-led equity group; pretty fun too.
  7. Alto Saxophone player; I'm highkey bad, but I've been playing since middle school and got a superior rating at my state's solo festival during COVID.
  8. Staff Writer at a youth-led humanitarian journal; they shut down recently but my articles were so fire.
  9. Campaign Fellow with my Representative through this high key ponzi-scheme program; honestly had to miss most of the fun in-person events since I was travelling that summer :/
  10. Club President of my school's Amnesty International Club; honestly do not remember much from this other than some lobby days
I had a lot more extracurriculars and little projects I worked on over HS that never ended up making it onto my application, but it's okay because really I was only heavily involved in the first 6. Out of anything though, I probably spent the most time in HS lifting and reading philosophy💀
List all awards and honors submitted on your application.
  1. Very prestigious Model UN award from Georgetown
  2. National Merit Finalist (I highkey did the PSAT a week after my actual SAT and I got so bored I started doodling all over my test. Idek how the money for this scholarship works 💀)
  3. Wesleyan University Book Award (no clue what this is or why I got it, but they held an awards ceremony at my school last year and I got it??)
  4. AP Scholar with Distinction (only took the easy humanities/ social science exams 🔥)
  5. Silver writing award from my region
Letters of Recommendation
Got three teacher recommendations, all of which were humanities/social science. Would not recommend doing this 💀
  1. AP Lang Teacher (?/10). I was pretty close with her and she though I was hella smart. That said, apparently her recs are like 3 sentences long, so no clue on this one.
  2. AP World Teacher (8/10). Great teacher and I learned a lot from his experiences teaching abroad. I don't imagine it was very thorough because he was my second semester teacher in junior year, but I think his department generally views me well 🤷‍♂️
  3. AP Psych Teacher (7/10). I really enjoyed his class and had him both semesters, but I don't know if he got to know me very well and I don't know how thorough his letter was.
Overall, I regret not getting closer to teachers and telling them about my accomplishments and interests. Not sure why, but I've always been relatively reserved about my experiences and what have you at school. That said, not many people at my school get close to teachers, so I think my high level of engagement in class maybe made up for it.
External Recs. These are where I think I really shined, since I had too excellent recommendations written by higher-ups in my advocacy groups who got to know me and my ambitions really well.
  1. Letter from higher-up at EC #1 (10/10). Knew me very well, both professionally and with some of my personal interests like phil and history, and saw me handle some difficult situations in our organization pretty well. This is probably the extracurricular I put the most work into and grew the most from, so I definitely think this letter shined.
  2. Letter from higher-up at EC #5 (10/10). Although our work was fairly brief, she got to know me well and apparently spoke very highly of my writing and research skills, so always a plus! Also someone with thorough experience in the fields I am aspiring towards, so I think she may spoken to that as well.
On a final note, I really think these last two recs have the potential to significantly boost my application. So far, I've gotten good results from the schools where I could submit these two letters, and not-so-good results from the schools where I couldn't. I obviously don't think this was the sole factor, but it definitely helped bolster my profile.
Georgetown (10/10): Could have not been paired with a better person and, although our interview was fairly brief, it was very thorough and I got to say everything I wanted relatively well. My interviewer was quite old, and so considerably harder to make a good impression on. I don't know how impactful the interviews are, but seeing how experienced he was and how much he expressed his hope that I get in, I think it boosted my application.
Princeton (8/10): Again, paired with an excellent person. Not only were they experienced in a sector of my field I still didn't know much about (international law), but they were also my best friend's coach 💀. Our discussion wasn't super long, but I got most of my points through (albeit, maybe too thoroughly) and he seemed impressed by me.
I'll refrain from getting too much into my essays because they were very personal, but I felt a lot of pressure to meet high expectations. After all, I was applying to top schools for arguably one of the most consequential majors. There aren't many teenagers aspiring to become diplomats, so I felt a lot of pressure to prove myself without coming off as arrogant, ignorant, or rashly passionate.
Personal Essay (9/10): I spent most of the summer and a lot of fall working on this one, and it went through many iterations. Although it's kind of a mess, I think it captures my energy well and summarizes the key aspects of my background that inspire me to pursue diplomacy.
School Essays (7-9/10): Some were really good, others I didn't have much to say for and got pretty tired of all of this after the EA round. Some I really liked where my UChicago abstract essay (talked about fear in politics and sociology), my extracurricular essay (talked about learning the importance of action and inaction), and a lot of my "why school" essays.
Overall, I think my essays were one of the stronger parts of my application and helped me stand out from a lot of my peers who have similar (and often better) stats.
Decisions (indicate ED/EA/REA/SCEA/RD)
Additional Information:
Overall, absolutely can't complain with the results so far--I got into my top choice! As happy as I am, I honestly haven't reflected on this whole process too hard. Since I submitted my last app, I've just been trying to enjoy my senior year and prepare for what's to come. I hope I haven't come off as ungrateful or ignorant from privilege. I understand this is an extremely important and consequential process for so many people, and I certainly bear a lot of privilege not yet having fully understood the impact this may have on my future. At the same time, this is a very personal process that is the result of years of work and dedication--so much so that I find it difficult to genuinely communicate it. In any case, I hope this was a good look into my process, and wish you all the best of luck in this coming days!

2023.03.24 19:12 NuclearTestSite why is America so worried about slurs?

Hi, confused autistic European. So I have grown up in Europe, in majority white rural areas on farms.
Never really heard slurs until I got on discord as a late teen. Almost all my friends are American, and a very mixed race group. I don't think we have any race, group or even sexuality not represented.
First slur I ever heard was my friend from Cali saying the hard R as an insult (black) against another one of the guys in the group (Korean American) as a joke, which was supposedly very funny(?).
Don't know if it was just my autism, so I kind of just asked what it meant and got more confused. Then I basically got a whole wiki copypasta of slurs. Other than slurs against myself (r*tard mostly) for my disabilities, I had never even really had the consent of racial slurs.
So, looking at it from my quite small window into the US, why are these words so revered? I understand the historical background, but surely holding it up to such power would only make it worse once another ethnic group does say it?
Almost every gay man I know (including my godfather and brothers) says traditionally gay insults (pédé or fggot) and doesn't get upset when anyone else does, because they say its their way of protecting themselves. I do the same with rtard.
I guess I'm kind of asking why give a group a pile of unguarded firearms, then be horrified when someone takes that gun from the unprotected pile and shoots it off?
(small footnote: only censoring the slurs because I'm not completely sure if they're okay on this subreddit, and I also don't want to hurt anyone's feelings if my opinion is terrible, haha.)
(also sorry if my grammar is bad, English is my second language.)

2023.03.24 19:07 PD_Dakota 3/24 AMA With Nate - Answers

What is the best mission you saw an image/s of on #ksp2-screenshots?
Hard question. Land speed record attempts definitely - been fun to watch. Also like people landing in weird spots, landing in the tracking station dish, into the parking garage (we're going to fix that btw)
How has the rough launch of Early Access affected the overall mood and productivity of team members and developers? How does your team stay motivated through all of the hateful comments that get thrown towards the development and marketing teams?
Can't answer for all the team, but will give you my personal answer: we're feeling good. We're playing the game and having fun while squashing bugs. Been great seeing the community get their hands on the game and enjoying it. Feels really great to fix a bug, almost like scratching an itch. Mean comments are kinda something that just comes with game development - but with the KSP community the negative comments come from a place of care, not hare. All over, feeling good.
**As a long time KSP1 player, I was very worried about the future of KSP2 after the rough release.
However, I must say I and many others have a renewed faith in you and your team after the success of this first patch (awesome job guys). That being said, what can you say to calm the concerns of some of the die hard fans that are still worried we may never see certain road map goals fulfilled due to funding?**
First of all, we didn't put things on the roadmap we didn't feel confident we'd get to. Everyone at T2/PD/IG is in this for the long haul. We saw KSP1 evolve over a decade, we hope to do the same. One of the nice things of being a first-party studio, is we don't really have to worry about the logistical things like rent - so the publisher takes on that burden so we can focus on development.
Can you give any more detail about how the automated "trade routes" are going to work? Will we see ships automatically landing on / taking off from the launchpad or will it be more of a in-the-background kind of thing? How will the game handle changing delta-v requirements due to different planetary alignments?
Big question. Maybe it's helpful to give some context about iterative development: when we create a spec, our focus is to improve things in parallel.
For delivery routes, we have clear steps.
First implementation, crediting/debiting resources to vehicles and colonies based on duration.
Second implementation might take into account launch windows and such.
Someday, would be very cool to see vehicles coming and going. Not a promise, but a long-term aspiration.
(going to add more to this, Nate speaks fast)
Can we get anything in writing related to the planned structure/function of multiplayer within the game, and how you plan to work around certain speedbumps like time warp or two player craft docking (I.e. where is the processing for this done?)?
Generally we try to not talk much about multiplayer but let me give you something:
People will have separate timelines and then there will be a reconciliation phase when the players interact with each other. That's the plan right now but I also can't speak directly to the details of this feature - future comms coming!
How much time and research goes into deciding what kind of rocket/space plane parts get into KSP2/KSP?
Chris Adderley (Nertea) is an amazing researcher and has a ton of existing knowledge. We also work with subject matter experts like Dr. Uni Shumlak from University of Washington.
We hold ourselves to the standard of rooting everything in the game to real life science. Even if it's not a perfect implementation, if you look it up on Wikipedia you discover our features are real.
We spend a lot of time on the Atomic Rockets website as well!
In regards to the decision to leave wobbly rockets within the game. Are there plans to make this feature more detrimental to rocket design and progression? Or is this simply an early implementation of something that'll become more elaborate and significant?
This is a really good example of how having something in Early Access helps us iterate and develop features forward. This is definitely a hot topic, so here's my two cents:
If a rocket is skinny and made of many stacked parts, it should wobble. Larger scales, no.
We're working on it, it will get better.
What was your favorite thing to work on in KSP2? What was your least favorite thing to work on?
Favorite things: probably tutorials. Tapped into my own passions as a storyteller, especially visual storytelling. Learning how we can convey complex topics with amazing animations.
Least favorite: probably tutorials. We iterated like CRAZY with them - redid them multiple times. Multiple scripts, multiple animations, lots of work. We eventually had breakthroughs on each one, but it was a process.
What has been the most challenging feature to work on?
For me: see above - tutorial.
For the team: heavy technical stuff. Adapting architecture to interstellar scale, accelerating trajectories, multiplayer. These make almost everything hard to implement, but we're making progress!
What was your initial introduction to KSP?
Mid 2012. Remember the addition of EVA, docking, and the outer planets. Been playing it for quite a while, couple thousand hours in KSP1. Wonder if I have more in KSP2 now...
How has community feedback shaped your vision and priorities for the game?
I think it depends how far back we're going. I've been a member of the community for so long, so I brought a whole wishlist of features to the beginning of the project that was very much based on the community's wants back then.
Today, obviously community feedback helps us prioritize - wobbly rockets for example. One unexpected thing is that sometimes we hard focus on one feature/fix that is low priority for the community. [WILL ADD MORE]
what has been your favorite part or experience in developing ksp 2?
I always loved sharing KSP1 with people, but always saw them bounce off of it because of how difficult the game can be.
My focus is to improve the first-time user experience with the core gameplay unchanged, so they can get as excited about the game as I am. It's an amazing feeling to see someone close to me embrace the game like that.
Will certain resources needed for colony construction be planet/biome specific?
The diversity of resources is what's going to make exploration mode so fun. Compared to KSP1 which was very self-directed (take temperatures, etc), when there is a unique resource somewhere that gates your access to some category of parts/features - wow it totally changes the game. It gives you something material literally material, yeah the interplanetary/interstellar progression will really POP once you're able to dig up a specific thing that gives you a specific ability.
Has there been any piece of community feedback/content that you and the team find especially motivating?
Anytime I hear about someone who wasn't get into KSP1 who was able to get into KSP2, that's incredibly motiviating. Especially when it's kids.
Feels great to hear kudos that someone feels we're on the right track with things whether it be UI, soundtrack, etc.
Howard, our composter, has been showered with praise upon the EA release - and it's SO deserved.
When we hear nice things, it energizes us.
how often does the dev team play the game?
We have team-wide playtests twice a week. Our QA team plays it basically all-the-time. I personally play almost every day.
What non-KSP game/piece of media has inspired you and the team the most?
There's a video called "The Wanderers" by Eric Wernquist. It's a beautiful, very short video, that definitely feels like our "north star" for what we want KSP2 to feel like. It has these beautiful rendered scenes of humankind exploring the solar system. We watch it fairly frequently and show it to new hires.
Will there be more tutorials in game, such as the ones being uploaded to tiktok etc?
For the in-game tutorials, we have quite a few already made. The animations are already made for 9 or 10 of them. As new features are being added to the game, tutorials will come alongside them.
When interstellar is implemented, are the different solar systems going to be stationary or are they going to orbit something (to simulate a galaxy)?
So one of the things I learned very early in the project, is that the movement of stars around a galactic center is very unintuitive compared to normal movement. Especially when you're dealing with stuff like dark matter, it's unpredictable.
Our current implementation is that they do move relative to the galactic plane, but we want other stars to be moving targets that you'll still have to get a intercept for.
Short answer: yes.
Procedural wings are great but are there plans for other procedural parts? Maybe for fuel tanks?
This is always a question we're asking ourselves. What is the threshold that too much procedural parts takes away from the parts-focused KSP experience?
The next procedural part is procedural radiators. After that's in, we'll take a look at what our priorities are and what the community wants. My opinion is that solar panels should be prioritized over fuel tanks, but we still need to have internal talks about it.
Are there going to be any significant changes to the science system in KSP 2, or any changes that you feel are worth talking about?
For context, the first of the progression modes that will be coming in a roadmap update will be science mode.
It will be similar to the KSP1 experience. Gaining science points, redeeming them for parts.
Differences would include:
We don't want people to be able to gather huge amounts of science around the KSC. We want to push people to explore and visit all the other Celestial Bodies.
There will be a opt-in mission system that gives you a reward for doing a particular thing.
What is your favourite ksp 2 mod so far?
We are IMPRESSED by how many exist already.
Selfishly, it's one from LinuxGuruGamer, someone who if you're part of the modding community you're probably already familiar with. It's a script that automatically collects relevant logs for bug reports to send our way. Definitely awesome.
What has the morale been like throughout development?
Throughout development, throughout all of it....
I'm speaking on behalf of a bunch of people who can't speak for themselves but:
I think overall good. The game is out and we have a trajectory line that's headed somewhere. We're no longer working in a vacuum, we're working with you all - and we see the effects of the improvements we make to the game immediately.
Yesterday I was looking at ksp2_screenshots, and was just marveling at how much ambition was unlocked by Patch 1. People are having more fun because of the work we've put in - and that feels great.
For the far off colonization update. How will buildings work? Will we assemble them ourselves by landing modules (or making them on site) and moving them into position, or will it be more of a prefabricated type of building system?
We have a inflatable module that you put on a vehicle and once you deploy it - it's basically like setting up a camping site. It sets up a VAB-like interface. Using that and other modules, you can use resources to add even more modules to the colonies. There will be attach notes and it'll be very similar to creating a vehicle. Also the same thing applies to orbital colonies.
When will the water physics be fixed and properly added?
Yeah we have a boat launch now....and the boats immediately sink....
Buoyancy and hydrodynamic drag are being worked on right now. Parallel development alongside performance and stability.
Now that the first patch is out, what are you mainly focusing on?
Stability, performance, new features. In that order. Obviously, I am eager to see heat be implemented. We've shared the visuals but there's also the actual heating system. Thermal kinda feels like the final pillar we need for the structural outline of KSP2 to be complete so we can start building on top of it with the EA milestones.
Any plans to have a solid planet that is about the size of Jool or perhaps larger?
We do have a super-earth in the game: Ovin. It's not as big as Jool, I think it's 60% larger than Kerbin. It has it's own rings. It's big enough to make landing hard. No plans for a Jool-sized terrestrial planet. Should we do it community?
Will there be XL sized launch engines, and if so, are there any estimates on when they will be added
We have some very big engines that will arrive with the Interstellar update. People have seen the Crucible which is MASSIVE. Big Engines Coming!
Will we have and when realistic plasma/smoke tail after reentering spacecraft and different colors of heated plasma because of different speeds of reentry?
Different atmospheres probably have different colors of plasmas - different ionization attributes. Going back to that iterative development point, the first version of re-entry heating will be one color, but the spec definitely calls for multiple colors based on location and atmospheric composition.
Was there ever a bug in early development that was so hilarious that the team still references it today?
Yeah so the RCS "puffs" involve a cone-shaped mesh. It's basically an invisible mesh that puffs out when fired. We had a frustrating bug that would cause a vehicle to violently rip itself apart after launching, and we couldn't figure out what the problem was. It turns out the invisible meshes for the puffs were generating drag. Each one was basically generating more drag than a full-sized parachute. We had a huge laugh once we realized how silly the actual problem was - and we were glad it wasn't a problem with the fundamental architecture of the game.
Will atmosphere-rich celestial bodies have weather patterns sometime in the future?
If so, would this weather have any physical effect on your vessel?
We do not have short terms plans for that. We have planets with tilt, so we could implement weather and SEASONS. But we have a long runway ahead of us. Never say never, but yeah if we wanted to implement these features, we'd want it to affect gameplay in some way so we'd need to figure that out.
There's also the whole once we implement more modding capabilities to the game, it's totally possible something like this is added by the community.
What is one feature/part/idea you really wanted to implement, but would not/could not for whatever reason?
This game is unique because we basically never say "no" to things. We often "defer" things because there's more important things to work on. Like for example, Chris and I want to add a proper airliner cockpit, but it's going to take time and effort from our team. Hopefully we'll get to it someday!
Once the game is "Complete" with everything on the roadmap implemented and debugged, is it possible development will continue with new features?
KSP got updates over a decade. We want to do the same thing.
Will interactable IVA'S be a thing?
Yes, that's the plan. Cockpits were made with IVAs in mind. Don't know timing yet.
What's your favorite KSP2 creation thus far (by you or by anyone else)?
That depends on the day you're asking me. Everyone internally has a favorite category of things they love to see. Ness loves seeing things people really shouldn't make, like dragons, or flying shopping carts.
I created a Slack channel dedicated to tracking people making F4 Phantom crafts. They're all so impressive so I started collecting them so I could share them with the team.
Do you plan to add life support to the game like the USI life support mod for ksp1?
We made a determination that the addition of life support won't enhance gameplay that much, for most players. Obviously a lot of people have a ton of fun with the life support mods for KSP1, and we hope that once moddibility is easier it'll get added that way.
Do you plan to add telescopes and asteroids early in the game already?
Already have made assets for both. Will get to them once the schedule allows.
Many community members across the modding scene have noticed that certain models often contain INSANE polygon counts. Will those be reviewed for optimization passes too?
Already in progress. Some models actually need those insane polygon counts, like the IVA cockpits. Sometimes unusually-high polygon-count models slip through and we'll look to optimize them as our schedule allows. Patch notes will include lines such as "mesh optimization" which would basically be that.
Will we see many more star systems and other interstellar objects added throughout the game's map as the years go on?
We've committed to three star systems leading up to 1.0. I'd love to add more circumstances permitting. That's not an official plan, but that's what I personally want. We always come up with cool ideas for new celestial bodies - and we want to add new bodies that create new kinds of gameplay. When we have those ideas, we definitely want to get them into the game!
Will asteroids make a return? Or foreign bodies in general?
Yes, artists already made them. Once schedule permits.
If there will be smth similar to "carrer" mode, will you add planes challenges/contracts?
Obviously we replaced money with resources, so once you move into interstellar progression, the limiting factor will be your access to resources based on delivery routes and such. It's a much more material gating, which is probably the most similar to a "career" mode.
Can we get a wind tunnel at KSC for testing aerodynamics?
There is a spec...not for a wind tunnel....but for an expansion of the "Center Of" functional in the VAB that gives you more insight into the various attributes of your vehicle that is visual and intuitive and reacts immediately as you add and remove parts. It's not a wind tunnel, but it would be diagnostic like a wind tunnel would be. Maybe one day, we need to think on it.
Will robotics be implemented in a future update?
Probably not before 1.0. There's a lot of work leading up to the full 1.0 release. When we get to it, we want to make sure it's fully implemented, so after 1.0...one day.
Are there plans to have collaborations for missions and/or other scenarios in game with IRL space agencies such as NASA, ESA etc.?
Yes. Yes. Yes. We did that stuff in the past, and we're so excited about the things they're doing. It really just matters what those institutions are doing. If anyone knows people there, we're waiting by our phones....
Who is your favorite Kerbal?
Tim C Kermin is based on a friend of mine who was an artist on the team who passed away. Every time I see that character, it makes me feel warm feelings.
will we be able to terraform planets in the future? like eve and duna?
What event in IRL space exploration that you experienced/learned about had the most significant impact on you?
I don't know how many people lived through the spaceflight drought of the 90s and mid 2000s. There was definitely a period where we felt like we were stuck in neutral. Zubrin's Mars Direct kept me interested at the time, so learned a lot during that time.
[will add more]
What feature of KSP2 are you most excited for, and why is it interstellar travel?
Colonies + delivery routes will lead to very creative and very interesting solutions and gameplay. Looking forward to it.
What is your opinion on people datamining the game - do you feel bad that stuff is getting leaked, or are you excited that the datamines give the community a lot of hope for this game?
People are going to root around and stuff - they're curious! I just take it as enthusiasm for the game.
Any thoughts on adding vr support to KSP2 in the future?
Yes, I want it badly. Conversation will happen after 1.0.
Now that we have a boat launch option, is it likely that we will get dedicated boat or submersible parts at some point in the future?
With the buoyancy development, we're definitely looking at this. Ballasts and fluid pumps are being discussed.
Which aspect of the development (or which upcoming feature) do you really think will make the game unique when compared to KSP 1? Do you think the current performance problems will stick around or become more prominent as new features start getting added?
Of course the performance problems will not be sticking around. We need to prioritize that so the milestones don't add to and then multiply (with multiplayer) performance problems. [more]
Orbital colonies have been mentioned. Will they have a set orbit once the first part has been built, or will they be able to move with engines like other spacecraft?
I cannot stop you from [crazy old man star wars references, i can't type]
They can be moved and crashed, yes.
What suggestions from the community do you think where helpfull?
Wobbly rockets definitely has been illuminating. Also helpful to learn UI/UX pain points.
Will Rotors and hinges be coming back at some point?
Post 1.0 conversation. I'd like them to.
How useful will orbital construction be and how awesome are the colonies?
Completely critical to the interstellar progression. You can't make a interstellar vehicle in a gravity well. Someone will definitely prove me wrong about that one day.
Does the terrain system support overhangs and caves, or is it still using the old heightmap system?
We're using a NEW heighmap system. Go read Mortok's dev blog. Currently we do not have specific plans for that.
Will there be secret launch sites added or will you be able to build custom launch pads on other planets?
On Kerbin, 4 separate agency launch sites - 4 different KSCs basically. Will be useful for multiplayer.
Once colonies are online, you'll be able to place the launchpads really wherever you'd want.
will we be able to reach the speed of light and/or FTL?
In our pursuit of realism, no. Light is the ultimate speed limit.
What are the goals and visions for multiplayer? How do you want to see players interact with each other? Will players be able to go on collective missions on the same crafts? Will players be able to share colony buildings (Once that comes out) and create?
Man that's like 8 questions in one....
So there will be the asynchronous progression - people dropping in and out of the server over time but slowly building up resources and sharing delivery routes between colonies. There's also synchronous multiplayer like space races and car races. I'm interested to see how players will play and what half they'll focus on.
*What is your favourite book? *
A Fire Upon the Deep by Vernor Vinge.
*Will we have rough/insulation surfaces for spacecraft parts instead of a metallic to paint spectrum ? *
We're discussing it internally. No promises but it's on our radar.
*Will there more colony parts than what shown in the trailers? *
Will the surface of moons and planets in space and when landed be more detailed in the distant future?
yep. check out mortoc's new terrian system. will be MUCH more detailed.
*What would you say was the most troublesome feature to get working over the course of KSP 2's development? *
Procedural wings probably required an unusual amount of A B C and D testing. Back and forth and tuning, and making sure it felt good and looked good. Even things like editable they should be, we explored so many edge cases. Really happy with what we ended up with.
What kind of size range can we expect with colonies? Will all colonies be roughly the same size, or will we be able to have small 1-2 launch research colonies along with our gigantic industrial ones? Will there be any upper size limit?
There's no plan for an enforced upper-size limit. It'll be similar to vehicles, it's made of parts - we want people to make it as large as they want. Obviously not all computers can handle massive builds, so there will probably be a player-dependent fps-based size limit.
Do you expect multiplayer KSP2 to overtake singleplayer KSP2 in terms of player count and development when it releases? In other words, will singleplayer KSP2 become mostly obsolete?
There's something about singleplayer KSP2 that can be very meditative. I don't always feel the need to share what I'm doing with everyone. I think singleplayer will always have a place.
What is the reasoning behind not allowing early access players the ability to use the debug menu? Since it is a sandbox game its omission seams odd, especially for early access. Will it be included at some point for single player campaigns?
So the debug controls were really only added for internal developer purposes, and we haven't really done any QA testing - or really created any design specs for it. Adding a debug menu could change a million variables that would really make it hard to investigate bugs. I want there one-day to be a player-focused debug menu.
Will KSP2 wheels finally work as intended?
anecdotally, they're improved.
Hello! Besides Kerbal Space Program 2 what have you worked on before?
It's my 30th anniversary in game development
fast action paq, i have no mouth, starfleet command 2, demigod, bejeweled, many canceled projects, a indie comic
been all over.
Do you play any games outside of KSP? If so what games?
Many of us on the team are obsessed with this VR game called Walkabout Minigolf. The future of VR is minigolf. I don't know if I'm allowed to recommend you buy a game that's not KSP2, but after you buy KSP2, grab Walkabout Minigolf
Who makes all your awesome "KerbalSona" profile pictures?
Matt Poppe! Our community artist, he's the best!
The performance has improved slightly with the latest patch, but unfortunately it's still not enough. Will the performance be further improved with the upcoming patches?
How different will the science and science gathering be in KSP2 vs KSP1? Or will it be similar?
Similar in the broad strokes.
are big features like science or interstellar on the backburner until the game is better optimised, or are the big features being developed alongside bug and performance patches?
It's more parallel. People are focused on different things at the same time.
*Do you have an estimated date to release support for controller setups such as HOTAS stick and throttle sets, custom controllers designed specifically for KSP, or maybe even racing sim equipment to use for rovers? *
As an owner of a HOTAS stick that I can't even use yet, it will be supported, just no date yet.
Do you think spending so much time on KSP2 alone has taken a toll on your mental health?
laughs nah man this is fun. it feels like a dream. it's the best.
Have you ever, at one point during development, thought about giving up on KSP2 due to ... reasons? If so, what made you continue anyway? If not, what kept you motivated?
never contemplated giving up. it's maybe a little bit of a obsession.
What was launch day like at Intercept Games?
Exciting. We drank champagne. It was great
When is Jebediah getting his own TV show?
When Hollywood comes knocking....
do you pour the milk before or after the cereal?
I don't understand the utility of pouring the milk before the cereal.

2023.03.24 19:04 iaad95 Diverse Characters

I love that StoryGraph has prompts in the review submission. It makes me really consider what I just read and it's a nice snapshot even if I don't leave a full written review.
I'm curious about what criteria others use for determining whether the cast of characters is diverse. Do you look at race/ethnicity/nationality, sexual orientation, ability, societal background or something else?

2023.03.24 17:52 OnlyCryptographer707 Power rangers script idea

Im currently writing my own power rangers script movie.
Its seperate from the tv universe and has no connection what so ever or referances
There are 5 power rangers on my team Green, Yellow, Red, Pink and Blue.
Also a black Ranger but the black Ranger is the movie villain
Green and Pink will be female
Red, Yellow and Blue will be male.
Green will be the leader of the team. So in this universe its not red
All the characters will bw original
The power rangers will be all teens and the power rangers will all have different ethnicities
Green-Caucasian Yellow-African american Red: Chinese or Fillipino american Pink: Latino american Blue: Indian american
And the power rangers will be diverse one power ranger being lgbt, another having dyslexia and anxiety , one being in foster care.
Its about 5 teens from 5 different backgrounds who used to be friends becoming power rangers
The rangers will have original costumes Original zords and weapons,
The tone of the movie is Fun like the tv series but with a dark edge Its got a similar feel and vibe like shazam and the mcu spiderman.

2023.03.24 16:36 azrag09 Diversity Leads to Conflict

This is going to be my take on the recent events on growth in the language debate in the city of Bangalore.
  1. Bangalore has become very diverse in terms of people and their ethnicity. Hindi being the most spoken language, the people speaking Hindi feel very entitled. Karnataka being the lands of the kanads (i apologize if this is the wrong term used) are not cool with the fact that of Hindi imposition. Which a fare argument You cannot impose a language on the people which is not even the national language. There is no national language in INDIA.
  2. My second point will be the harassment the rest of the Indians face in government offices/shops/places of work in Bangalore. I will speak completely on personal experience basis being a Bengali and belonging to an air force background. Bangalore is a part of India and we are all indians be it be any state. BUt here in the government offices , the officers/workers absolutely ignore you if you try to speak in English or Hindi. Of course i cannot expect them to speak bengali or hindi ( if they don't know) . So English is a common point where we can all settle? I guess yes , because most in bangalore know to speak in English as the auto drivers too fight in english many a times. I was in the RTO applying for a new Learning License and my father was there to renew his DL. The counter where we had to provide our documents for verification , the guy saw and initiated the convo in Kanada. I stopped him and said "Kanada Bartilla sir, Hindi or English is fine". He said Hindi dosen't work here. His whole attitude suddenly changed and he said and i quote "If you can't speak kanada then why live here" . My dad is a very calm and composed guy , but stuff like this agitates anyone. He said sir i am in the AIR FORCE so we are here on a Posting basis. He looked at our faces and then said to this colleague and i quote " armed forces se hai toh kya preference chahiye" in hindi . IN HINDI . WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK. He just said hindi dosen't work here. Maybe her refffered to hindi as a official language in the RTO and he was speaking to his colleage in hindi . But the stuff he said was outrageous. Obvisouly my father has some dignity , we decided not to stay in that line instead of unnecessary quarelling with closed minded fucks.
  3. My final and concluding point is, If you are so proud if Bangalore being the silicon valley and the IT hub of India , the local people have to be more open to the India. You cannot just sit with your face puffed and say "Did we make Bangalore the IT Hub'' . No you didn't , but the government you Voted , YOU VOTED did make Bangalore the IT Hub.
  4. I think its time to live in harmony which i know is not possible because "DIVERSITY LEADS TO CONFLICT".
  5. What are your takes on the language debate?

2023.03.24 13:34 ToeNo5165 There is no logical reason to exclude people of different races in a fictional universe that features dragons and magic

Some people may complain about forced diversity, but this is likely due to their indoctrination by current political climates, rather than any legitimate grievances. It is important to remember that a good story should be the focus, not the skin color of background characters or even the diversity of the main cast. In fact, in a fictional world that is not based on real people, there is no reason not to have diverse characters in both main and supporting roles. Those who believe that diverse representation is pandering are likely unaware of the pandering that has been directed towards white men for so long that it has become normalized. Ultimately, the quality of the story should be what matters most, not the race or ethnicity of the characters.

Why Do More People Than Ever Want to Immigrate to Canada?

Why Do More People Than Ever Want to Immigrate to Canada?
In recent years, Canada has emerged as one of the top destinations for immigrants from all over the world. According to Statistics Canada, the number of immigrants who arrived in Canada in 2020 was 184,370, the highest in any year since 1913.
There are several reasons for this surge in demand for Canadian immigration, including its robust economy, quality of life, progressive policies, and friendly immigration policies. In this blog, we will explore why do more people than ever want to immigrate to Canada.

Robust Economy

One of the primary reasons why people want to immigrate to Canada is the country’s robust economy. Canada is among the world’s wealthiest nations, with a GDP of over $1.6 trillion, making it the tenth-largest economy globally. Additionally, the country’s unemployment rate is relatively low, hovering around 6.6% in January 2022, making it a desirable location for job seekers.
Canada is also a hub for several emerging sectors, such as artificial intelligence, biotechnology, and renewable energy, among others. This has led to a growing demand for skilled workers, making it an attractive destination for professionals seeking new opportunities. One of the Reasons for Canada to Welcome So Many Immigrants Every Year is to boost economy further.

Quality of Life

For quality of life, Canada is consistently ranked among the top countries. According to the 2021 World Happiness Report, Canada ranks 15th globally in terms of overall happiness. Additionally, the country boasts some of the world’s most livable cities, such as Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal, all of which offer residents excellent healthcare, education, and safety.
Canada’s vast natural beauty, including its mountains, lakes, and forests, also attracts many nature lovers. The country is home to several national parks and outdoor recreational activities, such as hiking, skiing, and fishing, among others.

Progressive Policies

Canada has a reputation for being a progressive country with inclusive policies that welcome immigrants from diverse backgrounds. The country is known for promoting multiculturalism, which allows people from different ethnicities and cultures to live together in harmony. That’s why so many people want to immigrate to Canada.
Additionally, Canada has progressive policies on social issues such as gender equality, and religious tolerance, making it an attractive destination for those seeking a more inclusive and accepting society.

Friendly Immigration Policies

Canada’s immigration policies are known for being among the most welcoming in the world. The country offers several immigration programs, such as the Express Entry system, which is a fast-track pathway for skilled workers to gain permanent residency.
Canada also has a family sponsorship program, which allows Canadian citizens and permanent residents to sponsor their family members to come to Canada. Additionally, Canada’s refugee resettlement program is one of the most generous globally, providing safe haven to thousands of refugees each year.


In conclusion, Canada’s robust economy, quality of life, progressive policies, and friendly immigration policies make it a top destination for immigrants worldwide. As the world becomes more interconnected, and people seek new opportunities, Canada’s welcoming attitude towards immigrants will continue to attract more people looking for a better life. The country’s reputation as a multicultural society with a high standard of living is sure to remain a draw for years to come. Most people transit from Work Permit to PR Canada as it is convenient for them to get residency.

2023.03.24 12:39 howlasinthecastle Favourite Plot Holes? (S4 Spoilers)

I love WWDITS but I think we all have to admit that there's more than a few plot holes/inconsistencies with the Vampire lore and character canon. That's part of the charm and I can respect a writer who goes 'ah you know what - f*ck it, I'm doing what's funny'. The show's become one of my comfort 'playing in the background' shows, so I've begun to notice them more now, feels like a little easter egg when I do, haha. So what's your favourite ones?
I think mine is Nandor's wives. In S1 and S2 he mentions multiple times he was married to 37 women and had 37 wives and in S4 the writers just decided to change it to men and women. But even though it's obviously a retcon, I love that it still makes sense with Nandor's character, like girl wives, guy wives, it's not that different. Like would he even notice which they were? Hilarious.
