2023.06.06 17:40 DoubleMatt1 [META] Should we go private for the reddit black out?

I know most of you guys probably don't give a shit but reddit is changing their API policy and it's effectively going to kill off 3rd party apps. Most subs will be going private from June 12th - 14th as a form of protest, which I am all for since I use RIF and really don't wanna switch over to the shitty official app.
With all that said, I just want some general feed back from you guys. Y'all ok with this or do you guys not give not give a shit, I don't wanna close down the sub for a couple of days and inconvenience the community.

2023.06.06 17:39 OkDot2596 Lifting while breastfeeding- more rest days?

Do I need more rest days when breastfeeding full time? I’m currently doing a full body lifting routine ever since about 3 months postpartum. I am 5 months now. I’ve lost all but three pounds of pregnancy weight (not really the goal, goal was to get strong enough to lift my giant baby). I did mostly barre workouts all through pregnancy and prior to pregnancy and while I’ve lifted heavy before it’s not what I was doing during pregnancy or just before. My concern is I’m still trying to build muscle, not necessarily lose weight and I think I may need more rest days. My trainer recommended me to eat 2100 calories and when I tried that, I lost weight pretty fast. I’m no longer paying any attention to calories, as I don’t really want to lose any more weight, while I guess I don’t mind a small amount more weight loss, my goal is muscle growth. I’m 5’7” and 134. I’m wondering if I should do more like two rest days between full body workouts instead of one rest day in order to promote muscle growth. I already eat lots of protein and lots of food in general.

2023.06.06 17:39 BlackKimera Solar Advice for Off-Grid Camper

Hello Reddit,
I am researching solar solutions for my small off-grid camper. I have a Window AC (5000BTU) that I have monitored with a Kill-a-watt to use at Max 360w when the compressor is running, this is the primary thing I am looking to power, I have some small 12v lights, a 3a 12v fan, and there will be two phones that get charged, but these can easily all be taken care of without the solar setup, so the AC is the main thing, as between the wife and myself (as well as 3pups) it gets a bit warm in the camper, and the fan doesn't cut it.
I have been looking at Solar Generators like the Bluetti 200MAX and the Anker 767 to get between 2048Wh and 4096Wh as this should be more than enough energy to run the AC through the night and have some overhead in case of days where we can't recuperate enough energy. Unfortunately, both of these solutions offer only flexible panels (I understand that they support non-first party solar as well) so I started looking into DIY.
Since I have limited roof space for solar I am looking for a single somewhat compact solar panel that could handle what we are looking for, I have roughly 4' x 6' to work with, with 2 bars that I can drill/clamp to for mounting, I figure a 400-500W configuration should be more than adequate even in non-ideal conditions. What I have come across is this Panasonic from A1 Solar Panasonic 400W Solar Panel 132 Cell PNS-EVPV400HK – A1SolarStore
From my understanding since this panel outputs at 48v and is 400W it should be under 10amps, so the Victor 75/10 Amazon.com : Victron Energy SmartSolar MPPT 100V 30 amp 12/24-Volt Solar Charge Controller (Bluetooth) : Patio, Lawn & Garden should be enough to allow this solar panel to charge a 12v or 24v battery setup, and I have been eyeballing a Power Queen 5248Wh Amazon.com: Power Queen 12.8V 410Ah LiFePO4 Battery, 5248Wh Energy Lithium Battery Built in 250A BMS,4000+ Cycle Times and 10-Year Lifetime,Ideal for Solar System,RV,Home Backup,Off-Grid : Patio, Lawn & Garden

I would like any feedback/advice from the community on if there is something that I am missing/misunderstanding on if this would work. Some questions I have are:
  1. Is a single battery betteworse than a multi-battery setup for the same capacity? I know single is more expensive but seems like the weight savings would be nice since this is a fairly light trailetowing setup.
  2. Are there any concerns of these batteries dying when sitting in storage indoors where there will be no sunlight?
  3. For mounting a solar panel to a roof rack, is any sort of protection needed for the front of the panel that would be facing the brunt of the wind from the highway? or are they designed to handle that sort of wind?

2023.06.06 17:39 Patriahts The MLB Scores & Stats ResultsCast!

Hi there!
Out of left field comes this little family side project, which takes licensed MLB stats and game notes and translates them into prompts (Chat GPT). Humans review/moderate the output, and pass it through voiceover AI before working through typical audio engineering to finish the process.
You can listen to it here: The MLB Scores & Stats ResultsCast!
or find it on your favorite podcast service by searching or clicking here: https://www.mlbresultscast.com/share
We're looking for constructive feedback, ways to make the show better. We get that it's not everyone's brew, but for us it is striking a chord.
Some known issues with the voiceover AI result in some minor inconsistencies in pronunciations (Uecker today, for example). Others get corrected as we move through the season.
We also DO check the MLB history facts that Chat GPT comes up with. We don't usually allow them through if they are false, but we appreciated the story of Moe Berg today so we let it slide and apologized on Twitter 🤷.

2023.06.06 17:39 Throwaway140722 It’s been almost 3 years of NC and she’s still blaming everyone but herself.

Throwaway account because I don’t want this coming back to my main.
Almost three years ago my Nmother and I had our final conversation. In it, she told me that all my failings as a person, all the decisions I’d made, were the result of the toxic ideas and relationships that were in my head from my grandmother. At the time at that conversation, my beautiful grandmother had been at rest for just over three years. She’s been gone for almost 6 years now and I miss her every day.
My grandmother was the sweetest woman I’ve ever known. She was my best friend, she saved my life, she gave me the strength to figure out who I am so I could be free. Every decision I’ve made since her passing is 100% my own and I am of sound mind and in good health.
You can imagine my absolute horror when nmother -the rancid bitch- ripped into my few supportive family members, and when she ended her tirade by hissing down the phone at me that she wouldn’t speak to me again until I’d been to therapy and was ready to admit she was right, I took the opportunity and blocked her. I blocked her everywhere. I even sold my house and moved 22 hours away with not much more than my pets and the clothes on my back and started again.
That’s not the end of the story. That would be too easy.
My nmother has a history of being late to things. And I’m not just talking about making everyone wait for hours for her while she repeatedly calls to say she’s on her way when in reality she’s walking her dog, getting showered and dressed, etc. No, she does things like showing up to my school an hour after classes ended and everyone has left pretending to be frantic because I’ve left a note that I’m not coming home. Mind you, after she found the note she took my brother to school, worked a full day, picked him up, took him home, gave him a snack and then finally went to my school to create a scene. She also turned up at my house after I’d moved out and the big sold sign went up and assaulted a neighbour because they couldn’t tell her where I’d gone. She knew I was selling and moving thanks to her flying monkeys but she waited long enough to ensure I’d be gone so she could cause a scene. The police got involved and I was able to prove that I was alive and well. It seems that being an adult and selling your house isn’t a crime.
Well, back to the present. The rancid bitch has been stirring up trouble. It seems the fact that I talk to my Aunt (her sister, and another target of her hatred and abuse) is eating her up inside. My aunt has been NC with her for about two years now.
The rancid bitch took it upon herself to bail up my young cousins and tell them that they need to be careful not to turn out fat and alone like my aunt. My cousins are distraught, my aunt is furious and I’m about ready to drive 22 hours to do things that will get me arrested. Of course, she blames all of this on the fact that my Aunt and I talk almost daily. Her position is that because we do talk, that my Aunt is now responsible for putting these ideas in my head, and that’s why I don’t speak to her.
It couldn’t possibly be the decades of abuse that’s pitting me against her. Nah.
So now their father, my grandfather, is trying to dictate to me, an almost 40 year old woman, and her early 50s Aunt what they can and cannot talk about. Because I’m the grandchild, and therefore a child, and therefore unable to live my own life and make my own decisions until my nmother says so.
I’m so angry. So freaking angry. When does this stop? When can I just live in peace without her still trying to control everything. For the love of all that is good, I am almost 40 years old and still dealing with this mess. I don’t ask for money or support or anything from these people and they still won’t let me be at peace.
This is mostly a rant but if you have any ideas for dealing with any of this please feel free to reach out because I’m so angry I can’t really think straight right now.

2023.06.06 17:39 Paran0idAlien Extracting caffeine from pills. Solution is cloudy.

I'm trying to extract caffeine from caffeine pills. It's mostly just for fun. My method so far goes like this:

  1. Grind caffeine pills in coffee grinder.
  2. Add powder to large jar with ample water and shake to dissolve all caffeine.
  3. Wait for the solids to settle. Do a gravity filtration.
  4. Boil off water until almost none is left (caffeine's solubility is 660g/L).
  5. Recrystallize the hot solution. Vacuum filter while rinsing with cold water.

This method is not perfect. The main issue is that after shaking to dissolve the caffeine (step 2), I'm left with a cloudy solution. The majority of the particles settle out overnight but the solution remains cloudy, even after filtration. I want to minimize this because I'm afraid these suspended particles are ending up with the caffeine in the final product, and in the boiling step, a murky film develops which I'm assuming is due to these suspended particles, and it's annoying to deal with since I don't want to do a hot filtration because I'm working with a pretty small amount of caffeine.

Anyways. Any ideas how to minimize this cloudiness? I'd prefer not to use any harsh chemicals because I'm gonna be making drinks with the caffeine. Here's the pill's ingredients:

Anhydrous caffeine
Dicalcium phosphate
Microcrystalline cellulose
Vegetable magnesium stearate
Croscarmellose sodium

I suspect the microcrystalline cellulose is allowing an emulsion to form between water and itself or the magnesium stearate or something, but I may be wrong.

2023.06.06 17:39 SonaMidorFeed Issues with ArkOS, UnofficialOS, and JelOS on RG353V

Hey everyone!
I previously purchased an RG35XX and immediately threw GarlicOS on it. I've been VERY pleased with how it's been working, and its ease of use. I'm familiar with loading custom firmware on these devices, and have a good bit of technical knowledge; I run my own homelab and am pretty good at figuring out how to make things work in the face of gremlins.
However, I absolutely cannot for the life of me get my new RG353V to install CFW, so I'm looking for some assistance to tell me what I'm missing. Here's what I've tried so far:
  1. Charged system to 100%.
  2. Deleted all the partitions on, formatted to fat, and Flashed 16GB card that came with the unit with ArkOS(Toshiba rebrand) using Disk Imager in Windows 11. ArkOS image version is 05/04/2023. Inserted card into TF1.
  3. Removed the second SD in TF2, then powered on the unit. ArkOS logo comes up, but then does nothing. No indication of anything being done in the background, no error. I let it sit for approximately an hour while I did other things just in case, but never progressed past the logo.
  4. Thinking I messed something up, and knowing the included cards suck, I flashed a brand new 256GB Samsung EVO, same method. Still wouldn't go past boot.
  5. Wondering if it was an issue with ArkOS in particular, I tested both JelOS and UnofficialOS. Same thing. Logos, but no progress past that in most cases. A couple times UnofficialOS made it LOOK like something was happened, but got hung up and wouldn't progress, even after letting it sit for an hour. Every time I tested something new, I made sure to delete all the old partitions and start fresh.
  6. Attempted to flash with Linux terminal, same thing, no boot past logo for any CFW.
  7. Flashed stock OS and it was perfectly happy.
What am I doing wrong here? This seems like it should be pretty simple, but absolutely nothing tried in any combination (sd card, image, tool used to flash, etc.) seems to make it want to work. I'm not seeing the v2 screen issues reported for ArkOS, and it seems those were fixed in a recent update anyway.
Any tips or tricks would be helpful. I'm sure somebody has encountered this before and it's not just me.

2023.06.06 17:39 Jr9065 While this is still a great show, I'd advise anyone not to go on the show because of the world we live in

In this very politically correct climate and social media toxicity era, you run the risk of being attacked and bullied online for anything somebody on social media (mostly twitter) deems offensive. Big Brother is on a whole nother level of insanity, but Survivor can get bad. I feel like the toxicity on social media is a factor in the show trying to make it look more politically correct and inspirational. It's possible that the casts aren't as agreeable and kumbaya as what we see, but the editors make it look like that way because of the times we live in.
It's hard to truly be a villain in this new era because they are the ones that tend to be attacked online. I find it weird that fans complain about not having enough villains, but will be quick to attack players for doing anything deemed villainous. I remember people here grilling Danny for looking through people's bags.
I've said that many people from old school would not be able to survive if their first season was today because of the times we live in. Janelle, who tweeted about Survivor needing more villains, would probably be cancelled if BB6 aired today.
Social media while does certain amount of good on these reality shows, have also had a lot of negativity. Amazing Race seems like the only safe show to go on.
Again, still a great show, but I wouldn't recommend anyone to go on because of the times we live in.

2023.06.06 17:39 Emergency-Capital407 The Benefits of Steel Security Doors: Protecting Your Property and Loved Ones

When it comes to ensuring the safety and security of your property and loved ones, investing in high-quality security measures is crucial. One such measure that has gained immense popularity is the installation of steel security doors. These robust doors provide numerous benefits that go beyond their durability. In this article, we will explore the advantages of steel security doors and why they are a smart choice for safeguarding your home.
  1. Unparalleled Strength and Durability: Steel security doors are designed to withstand significant force and resist break-ins. Made from sturdy steel materials, these doors offer superior strength compared to traditional wooden or aluminum doors. Their solid construction acts as a strong deterrent to potential intruders, providing you with peace of mind.
  2. Enhanced Protection: Steel security doors feature reinforced frames, hinges, and locks, making them incredibly difficult to breach. The combination of heavy-duty materials and advanced locking mechanisms ensures maximum protection for your property and loved ones. These doors often come with multiple locking points, including deadbolts and security chains, further enhancing their resistance to unauthorized entry.
  3. Increased Energy Efficiency: In addition to their security benefits, steel security doors also contribute to energy efficiency. These doors are typically well-insulated, preventing drafts and minimizing heat loss during colder months. By creating a barrier against outdoor elements, they can help reduce your heating and cooling costs, making them an environmentally friendly choice.
  4. Low Maintenance: Steel security doors require minimal maintenance compared to other types of doors. They are resistant to warping, cracking, and rotting, which are common issues faced by wooden doors. Additionally, steel doors are less susceptible to damage caused by weather conditions, such as rain or extreme temperatures. With simple cleaning and occasional lubrication of hinges, your steel security door can remain in excellent condition for years to come.
  5. Aesthetically Pleasing Options: Gone are the days when security doors were bulky and unattractive. Nowadays, steel security doors come in a wide variety of designs, colors, and finishes. Whether you prefer a traditional or contemporary look, you can find a steel security door that complements your home's aesthetic appeal. Many manufacturers offer customizable options, allowing you to choose the style and features that suit your preferences.
  6. Fire Resistance: Another advantage of steel security doors is their fire resistance. Steel is a non-combustible material, meaning it does not contribute to the spread of fire. Installing a steel security door can provide valuable time during a fire emergency, allowing occupants to safely evacuate the premises and providing firefighters with more time to control the situation.
In conclusion, investing in steel security doors offers a multitude of benefits, ranging from superior strength and durability to increased energy efficiency and fire resistance. These doors serve as a formidable barrier against intruders while adding an aesthetically pleasing touch to your home. By prioritizing the security of your property and loved ones, you can enjoy the peace of mind that comes with knowing you have taken proactive measures to protect what matters most.

2023.06.06 17:39 LaticusLad Time Marches Ever Onward: Chapter 3

(Any sentences or phrases wrapped with brackets "[ ]" are designated as inner monologue!)
Thank you to u/SpacePaladin15 for creating this wonderful literary universe!
< First Previous Next >
Memory transcription subject: Tassak, Arxur Paleontologist
Date [standardized human time]: July 15, 2165
I nervously clicked my claws against the wooden table as I waited for the rest of the invitees to arrive. The UN had brought me to the senate building privately so as to not cause panic, and I was grateful. I only hoped that the people whom I was going to be working with wouldn’t freak out at my appearance.
The war against the Federation and the subjugation of the Arxur by the Dominion had ended shortly after my birth, but the effects of the past few centuries of conflict could not be eliminated in such a short amount of time. Societal ideals have to be rewritten over long stretches of time by strong people with strong will, and there simply hasn’t been enough time to do so. As a result, though it has been many years since the last battle against the Arxur, it was still uncommon to see any outside of the space they already inhabited, and still VERY common to see hatred and fear of us among Fed species. It has always been my ultimate goal to show those who fear us just how similar we are, that is why I sacrificed everything to attend the Meiers Institute of Knowledge.
On the Arxur’s side of the societal coin, it was social suicide to interact with “prey” species willingly. [Oh how I hate that word.] Most of the elders of our society could not get over their hatred of the Federation species, despite the fact that they were under just as much, if not MORE subjugation than we were. When I made the decision to go and learn at MIK, I was shunned from all social groups at home. Not that there even were many, most Arxur rarely interacted with each other if they could help it.
MIK was a chance for me to experience new ideas and try new things. For once, I wasn’t discriminated against because I had front-facing eyes and scary teeth, and I learned just how much I loved socializing with like-minded people. I was finally allowed to let my love for knowledge flourish in a way that other Arxur would never have condoned. I graduated some time later with several degrees and a doctorate in paleontology.
Though to some, the idea of digging up bones and putting them together like a puzzle seemed macabre, it felt liberating to me. I felt like I truly understood the value of life and death. I could look at the cracked tooth of an ancient ancestor of the Arxur or the fossilized chitin of one of the Tilfish’s predecessors and identify a pattern, showing the divergent evolution they underwent to achieve their current form. I could see the similarities all life inherently had. Sometimes the similarities between us were shocking, and occasionally it was kind-of scary, but that only made me more passionate about my work.
I assume that is why the UN decided to send me a job offer 3 weeks ago. When I received it I was ECSTATIC at the prospect. The UN government sending ME, a small-time nobody Arxur paleontologist, an invitation to work with them? If I could tell my past self what I would be up to now, I would almost certainly scoff at myself. Even as I boarded my UN funded private ship to Aafa I was subconsciously wondering if it was some elaborate prank. My thoughts were interrupted as I heard footsteps from the other side of the door. This is it, I’m about to meet my partners, please don’t run away screaming.
A human, a venlil, and a gojid stood in the doorway staring at me. The gojid seemed slightly fearful but hid it well, the human and venlil however just seemed confused. [Okay, okay, they didn’t scream at me. That’s a good start.] The three, along with their escort, settled into chairs at the table I sat at, looking at me expectantly. I straightened my posture and prepared myself mentally to greet them. “H-hi, my name is Tassak. Are you the other three invitees?” The human sitting across from me spoke. “Yes. I hope I don’t offend by saying this but I wasn’t expecting an Arxur invitee.” He raised an eyebrow as he ended his sentence. He quickly started talking again, probably to try and explain his reasoning. “Sorry, I-I mean, don’t the Arxur frown upon interacting with “prey” species?” The venlil and gojid looked at me as I thought of a response. “Yes, they do. I had to cut a lot of ties to get into this profession. Let’s get introductions out of the way please.” “Alright, my name is James. I’m 31 years old. I was born on Earth and now live on Venlil prime. I went to MIK to become a historian. My diet is mainly coffee but occasionally I drink coffee as a treat.” The man smiled as he awaited our amusement, but it never came. James’ smirk faded and he coughed into his hand before continuing. “I was invited along with my friend Lemva, she’s the venlil next to me, and Cayek, he’s the gojid to your right.”
I exhaled quietly, James seemed friendly enough. “My name is Tassak, as I said before. I’m 29. I got a doctorate in paleontology at the Meiers Institute of Knowledge, along with some other degrees. I hail from Wriss I currently live on Earth.” As I finished my statement, I couldn’t help but criticize the way I spoke. [Why did I talk so rigidly, ughhh! My first impressions are going terribly!] James spoke up. “Wait, did we all come from MIK? Weird coincidence huh?” I could tell he was trying to ease the tension in the room. “I thought I would’ve noticed a giant lizard guy walking around campus.” Wait, did he call me a guy? “Uh, I’m a girl, actually.” I spoke timidly. The man before me became as red as a fresh cut of steak. His embarrassment was plainly visible, which I found amusing, it lessened my anxiety slightly.
The venlil that James had referred to as Lemva spoke up, changing the subject. “Weelll… Anyhow, my name is Lemva as James told you. I’m 30 years old. I’m an archaeologist and got my doctorate from MIK. My current home is on Earth but I’ve lived a little bit of everywhere. Me and James have been friends for a long time, we met in the institute’s history club.” Everyone focused their attention onto Cayek as Lemva’s introduction concluded. It took several seconds for him to compose himself. I could tell that my presence was uncomfortable for him, and him being seated closest to me of the three people probably exacerbated that feeling. I didn’t blame him for his fear, but it still stung a little. He gulped and started talking.
“My name is Cayek. I’m a 41 year old linguist who also went to MIK for my doctorate. I was born on the Cradle, was taken in at a young age by the UN after it got bombed, and was offered a home in one of the cities constructed by the Cradle Re-colonization Project, where I now live.” The man stopped talking and I thought he was done, but he straightened his posture and started speaking again. “I just want to get this out of the way before it causes trouble later down the line.” He spoke with a sigh. “I was born in a… you could call it a “hostile” household. My family raised me during a time when hate against… “people who were different” was acceptable. My upbringing cemented a couple habits into me that I’ve been trying to chip away at, so to speak, ever since I saw the sheer good that mankind is capable of. I’ve been attempting to be more open to new ideas ever since. Hell, I even took the anti-cure and tried some-” He gulped. “-non-herbivore cuisine, to get some perspective. So if I accidentally say or do something offensive to you please tell me, I truly want to leave that part of me behind.” As he ended his speech, he slouched and let out a breath he had been holding in. I was surprised by his honesty.
James and Lemva both processed the information. I responded first. “Thank you. You have no idea how much anxiety dropped off my shoulders just now. I was worried you’d all run away at first sight of me or treat me like some bloodthirsty beast. I very much appreciate the effort you’re putting into reforming.” James spoke after me. “I appreciate it too. After all these riots it’s such a breath of fresh air to meet a person that won’t cry if I look at them.” In the past 10 minutes, this man had crammed in jokes at any time he could. I think I’m gonna like him. I could tell that the joke came from a place of sadness though, I could see the sadness in his eyes.
James started to look impatient, he tapped his fingers on the table in a rhythmic pattern while he checked his holopad for the time. “I thought we were here for a job offer. How long is this gon-” The sound of the heavy wooden door opening filled the room, as a small group of well-dressed men and women filed in through the doorway. As my eyes scanned over each person who entered, my heart skipped a beat and I jolted upward to attempt a human salute as I spotted President Zhao at the tail-end of the group. [What the fuck? Why is he meeting with us?] The other three followed my gaze and stood to salute as well. In his surprise, James nearly fell over. My three partners were as equally dumbstruck as I by the sudden appearance of the head of the government.
President Zhao took on a small amused smirk as he witnessed James straighten himself out. “At ease. You may take a seat.” We did as he commanded. “Welcome to the Capitol. It’s good to see that you all accepted your invitations. I can see from your confused expressions that you probably want some answers, so let’s get started.” As Zhao took a seat at the head of the table, one of the men who had accompanied him lifted a briefcase from his side and placed it delicately on the table. The man inputted a code into a small keypad and the briefcase unlocked with a click. Inside was a holo-projector, which the man placed on the center of the table. “Before we begin, our four guests will need to sign a Non-Disclosure Agreement, the information spoken of in this meeting must never leave this room.” Another of the officials, a small woman in a black dress, passed four holopads to us, which we promptly wrote our signatures into. The holopads were collected and Zhao spoke. “Excellent. You’re probably all curious about the reason we invited you specifically for this opportunity, why all the security measures and guards, why we’re trying to keep this under such tight wraps.” The holo-projector on the table switched on and briefly displayed the Coalition logo, before transitioning to a hologram of Talsk, the Farsul homeworld. “As you know, for hundreds of years the Federation had been keeping archives filled with classified knowledge and confiscated or outright stolen items. On the nineteenth of june, approximately four weeks ago, after extensive search efforts, we found the motherlode. The Federation had kept many archives but this one was special. It wasn’t a library, it was a tomb. Buried under several kilometers of rock and deep ocean, the Federation sealed away items and information that, if released, could possibly threaten their hold over the galaxy.”
The holo-projector transitioned to a diagram depicting the archive, there was no entrance-way and no exit, just kilometers of water and stone between it and the surface. The hologram zoomed in on the archive, showing a more detailed view of the gargantuan structure. It consisted of several levels, each with a number of chambers housing items or information. At the very bottom of the structure, one chamber stood out among the rest. 10 meter thick walls of an ultra-hard titanium alloy encased a small cell filled with toxic gas. Suspended in the middle of the chamber by hundreds of metal rods was a vacuum-sealed prism of diamond. Finally, inside the prism was a small metal cube along with a holopad.
I felt a chill down my spine as I studied the intricate carvings etched upon the surface of the artifact. I could tell that the carvings were of some language, but it did not match any that I could think of. “Within the records, this artifact was designated as Class-Hydrogen1. The Federation’s information classification system is far too complex to discuss in full, but in summary, the more important something is, the closer to 1 the atomic number of the element it is assigned will be. The classification is then proceeded by a 1 or 2, 1 signifies dangerous information and 2 signifies dangerous materials. For example, in this same archive we discovered an experimental and dangerous singularity generator with a classification of Fluorine2, which has an atomic number of 9.”
“To put into perspective how scary the idea of a Class-Hydrogen designation is, the second highest classification object on record is a self-powered anti-grav receptacle of strange matter. Strange matter will turn any other matter it touches into more strange matter, I shouldn’t have to explain why that is incredibly dangerous. The receptacle was classified as a Carbon2. There are 4 classifications between Hydrogen and Carbon and none of them are being used.” My blood ran cold as I listened. What power could this artifact possibly hold? The question in my mind was quickly replaced by another. Why are WE the ones being told this? Before the window of opportunity ended, I opened my mouth to speak.
“Permission to speak, sir?” Zhao looked at me and nodded. “I still have a question, and I’m sure my partners do too, but why us? Why did you choose to tell us this instead of someone more qualified?” “I’m glad you reminded me.” I heard the clacking of a keyboard as one of the men beside the President switched the holo-projector to a different tab. A close-up of the cube appeared, showing the four sides of the object.
The first side depicts a bipedal creature covered in spikes turning their back on two similar figures cloaked in blood and flames. The creature holds a defiant posture. Flames trail behind them, turning to embers, then to smoke, and then fading entirely.
The second side depicts a small fluffy figure being chased by a dark version of themselves across a variety of settings and locations.
The third side depicts a large being covered in scales bound in chains kneeling on an altar, their arms being stretched to two different sides. On one side a crowd of identical creatures and on the other side a crowd composed of different figures of varying shapes and sizes, both sides pointing weapons at the central figure.
The final scene depicts a man screaming in anger and sorrow pointing a dagger toward a small creature with bloodied hands. Tears stream down his face. A man and woman lie dead in the background.
A gojid, a venlil, an arxur, and a human.

Dire Whirlwind on Different Gear with Different Stat Ranges?
I’ve seen one set of Dire Whirlwind on Jewelery and One on Weapons/Armor. Different ranges of stats. Do these stack? Or do I just use the Necklace since it has the best stats?

2023.06.06 17:38 Haunting-Mobile-1199 Passed! AT-AT-AT

Wanted to post my great news as well that I passed my exam yesterday with 3 ATs! This Reddit is extremely helpful; all the advice and tips were spot on. It's honestly amazing because I took a PMI-authorized course from my university, and although I received a lot of study material....this Reddit, along with the resources, helped far more than I could realize. My exam was similar to what others experienced; however, I would say it wasn't exactly as "easy" as some have conveyed.
The mindset from AR makes many of the questions very easy to solve, so it contributes well to time management to deal with more complex questions (I finished with about 60-70 minutes left, and yes, I took my breaks). I decided to take it at a testing center since one was close to me, and I didn't want any anxiety worrying about issues with connectivity, etc.
I used all the resources you've seen advertised here—mostly AR, Third3Rock, and DM. Study Hall and Simulator scores were very similar.....I scored 85-92% on TIA and 75-80% on SH, which is more than enough.
The test was similar to the moderate/difficult level SH questions....with a few easy ones sprinkled here and there
One PERT calculation
2-3 matching
About 8-9 multi-answer questions

Thanks, everyone!!! And good luck to future testers; you've got this!!

2023.06.06 17:38 entirewarhead How common are bill introductions used to prevent change?

How common are bill introductions used to prevent change?
I was reading an article about the petition to change the name of Devils Tower to Bears Lodge. Apparently the bureau that officially names places will defer any actions until 90 days after the start of the following Congress if a congressperson introduces a bill on the topic. Regardless of your beliefs on this particular topic, it seems like this is an unusually strong granting of power to a single congressperson. There could be overwhelming support for a name change, but as long as one congressperson objects and introduces a bill to protect a name nothing happens. It doesn’t have to go to committee or be enacted by the will of the people. And they could continue to do so in perpetuity as long as they are elected. Or as long as someone with a similar viewpoint is elected. What other areas of government exist where our decisions are made based on simply the act of introducing a bill?

2023.06.06 17:38 whiskey_north What order should I get them?

CL 3918, I have (3) series 3 cards left: Arnim Zola, Super Skrull, Sentry
I have the Living Tribunal and Jeff still pinned, and 3h left on my free series 3, which is right now Super Skrull (and then will rotate between the other two). I think priority is Arnim Zola and Skrull, but should I pick one over the other, knowing that it will potentially be another month before I get Arnim Zola? (I'm not in the favor of the RNG gods...)
Also, I wonder if getting the Living Tribunal and Jeff (both pinned) are still worth it? They're both currently 6k in the shop (I'm at 5300 tokens). What order should I get everything?

Thank you!
