2023.03.26 14:23 Irritated_bypeople technology getting to be too much for you?

Although this has been ongoing for some time, it cropped up again this week. I bought a tablet to use for reading some PDFs. My eyesight is starting to go as I am nearing 50 and its easier to read a screen 10 inches as opposed to 6. Upon opening the tablet it had a pile of useless apps and required you to be signed in to google to pretty much do anything. I was struggling to just use it in a file transfer and decided I am going to return it at this point.

Perhaps I am expecting too much, or perhaps too little. When I had my blackberry playbook it functioned a lot more like a regular PC. I want my tablet to be a touch screen pc more than a phone, this is a me issue I am sure, but also the complete need for everyone to be in your business. Need to login to outlook to turn on your post win 7 PC, need a google or apple account to use your phone/tablet. Need to sign into your smart tv to get it to run better. Don't mind us activating your camera and mic because we need to know what you are doing at all times.
I was once an early adopter but find tech way to intrusive now. I don't want or need google to check whats in my fridge and order it for me. I don't need Toyota to send me a notification that after 5,000 miles my hybrid van needs a service (and keeps reminding me) despite it using synthetic oil that can get 10,000.
Am I old man yelling at clouds is does anyone else have this issue or other tech concerns? Is my lack of trust from seeing how often it fails a me problem or is it real. I have been super pissed about this lately and want to see an answer that isn't "you are using the internet to post this you hypocrite"

2023.03.26 14:23 CartographerPlus9114 What caused you to leave a job?

I'm in a great career type job, and have been at this place for nearly 20 years. I've never felt the urge to leave so much as now. Obviously if I'm posting here I'm regarded as successful, looked up to, and am tagged as a great leader who gets things done. I'm actually trusted and respected, and since I have a high need for agreeableness, people like me.
So here's the thing - in my head I know exactly how much I can give to my job, and I stick to this. But within the last 6 months, because of stuff I have no control over, but objected to before during and after, I now cover for 4 full-time jobs; I'm overwhelmed and overworked.
And it's not so much that I'm not delivering on them. My core problem is that I don't have the time/space, within the overall amount of energy I give to my job, to properly focus on any one job. So it's constant anxiety over what I'm not able to do/give energy and attention to.
So I'm ready to walk. Has anyone been in a similar circumstance, or can share something related about why you've left your corporate job?
(I feel like there's some intj tie-in here, where my ability to execute on a task has fundamentally been compromised, and if known requirements are not in place, let some other sucker do the work)

I’m buying the 36” fence PCS and considering the large sliding table attachment.
Does anyone have this combo and willing to give me the total width with this attachment included and the length of the attachment from the front of the saw? Trying to size my shop space accordingly and can’t find accurate numbers.

Picross e8 completed! Finally!
Finally, my grind through the Picross e series is over, having just beaten e8. (The entire series in the west anyway.) This one took longer than the others (things got in my way; other games... life...), and an odd bug nearly derailed me. The game quit saving my progress. My 3DS XL''s battery is good, so not sure what's going on. I had to just put my head down and plow through about 30 puzzles.
Now to attack the Picross S series...

Hi all, me and some friends are staying near Stratton. Last night we all heard and felt a boom and sustained rumbling/shaking.
Must have been after midnight, maybe around 2-3 am.
Did anyone else experience this? Any thoughts on what it could be?

2023.03.26 14:21 SaintedDemon69 Is it worth learning to dive if I don't travel that often?

A few months ago, I asked whether or not it was worth learning to dive, considering my fears and occasionally irrational behaviour. The community successfully convinced me that my fears were (mostly) baseless, and that it is worth trying. However, I thought of one problem; I really don't travel anywhere often, and when I do, it's almost nowhere near a body of water. I live quite far from any major bodies of water, and the ones that are the closest really aren't that interesting. I would need to go on holidays I have no hope of affording. Is it still worth it when keeping this in mind?

2023.03.26 14:21 clovercadet Books for education?

Hello, I am a 29yo female who just moved out to my In laws Ranch. The ranch hasn’t had a ranch hand since the 90’s and has been let go. There are still animals on the land to care for. My in laws are getting too old to take care of everything and have transitioned responsibilities on my husband and I. We do not have the money to pay for a ranch hand, so my husband and I have been learning the ways. This is by choice of taking on the ranch completely one day.
But we do not have the time or money for schooling so we have been learning everything on our own and with help from our neighbors. There’s still a lot we don’t know, and have been recommended books to help us.
Unfortunately the price of these books individually are a litter higher than we can manage. Not as high as university text. But still out of our budget. Once we pay for large projects around here like fencing all the small stuff goes to feed for us and the animals. Iv tried looking for these books on used sights like ThriftBooks but they are so “neich” that companies only carry new at full price. Iv been checking my local bookstores and donation spots. Asked the old local farmers. But I have gotten no feedback. And it’s starting to pile up now that we are getting into the hot seasons.
I can google a lot of information but it always refers back to the books. And I rather just have the direct information.
If anyone could help or have more ideas of where I could find these books please let me know. I have linked an Amazon list that has the book details. Tyna

2023.03.26 14:21 Ram_the_Rod Enterprise Rent-A-Car damage scam

If this isn’t the kind of post that is allowed here, please remove. I’ve recently just finished dealing with, what I believe to be, Enterprise scamming me to get a car repaired. This was a long drawn out process over a couple months and I just want to share my experience so maybe others don’t have to deal with a similar situation. BE WARY OF ENTERPRISE.
I hit a raccoon on my way to work one morning (4:30am, very dark out still). He ran out in front of me and there was no time to react. It busted a hole through my front bumper. So, after dealing with my insurance and getting the car in for repairs, they set me up with a rental from Enterprise. This car was not great to say the least. The front end was heavily scratched and dented, then entire frame alone the bottom and black scuffs and scratches, and the front driver’s side was completely missing the wheel well. But, I had pictures of the whole car and the employee marked all these spots as previous damage, so I was on my way.
My car was in the shop for 10 days (it was over Thanksgiving, so there were 4 days they were not working on it). On the 9th day, I was coming home from work in the rental, and I started hearing a beep, and the dash of the car was lit up like a Christmas tree. The check engine light and many other warning lights began to show. I called them and they told me “if the car is drivable, then bring it back tomorrow”, so that what I did. The day after I returned it they called me, but I missed the call. They left me a message stating that I had returned the car in “perfect condition” (their words, not mine). This left me with a transcribed copy of that voicemail. A week later, I received another email from their damage recovery unit stating that there was a damage claim on the vehicle against me.
Here’s the scammy part, the actual Enterprise store refused to talk about the supposed “damage” on the vehicle and only wanted me to commit to filing it through my insurance. No one in their corporate office would take my call and no one from the company could tell me how to dispute these claims. So I let it go because I’m not paying for something I didn’t do. A few weeks later my insurance calls me telling me they have a claim sent to them for almost $13k for a new transmission on the car. They never even sent me an email and just sent to my insurance, expecting to be paid. My insurance declined there claim for lack of evidence that I did what they were claiming, and so the harassing phone calls started. I was getting at least two calls a day from their damage division demanding that I pay this. I stopped answering and filed a complaint through the Better Business Bureau. A month later, I received a letter from Enterprise that “they decided to drop the claim” 🙄
This was my first rental experience and it was an absolute nightmare. I would urge people to not use Enterprise, but if you do, don’t be afraid to decline a car if it doesn’t look up to standards. And don’t be afraid to fight back and defend yourself. I’ve seen similar stories about Enterprise doing things like this and it’s really disappointing that they could scam someone into paying for their car repairs based on unseen, prior damage on a vehicle. Renter beware.

2023.03.26 14:20 Disastrous_Stay_5472 Feeling depressed and low

Hey Reddit community, I wanted to share something that has been bothering me lately. I have been feeling really down and depressed because I am earning much less than my friends. It seems like everyone I know is making more money than me, and it's starting to weigh heavily on me.
I am currently working at operations job that pays me enough to get by, (INR 8.5 Lakhs per annum) but it's nowhere near what my friends are earning. They all have high-paying jobs and seem to be living their best lives, while I am struggling to keep up. I feel like I am falling behind in life and that I will never be able to catch up.
It's not just about the money, though. It's also about the lifestyle that comes with it. My friends are able to travel, buy nice things, and enjoy their hobbies without worrying about the cost. Meanwhile, I am constantly stressed about money and can't seem to enjoy anything without feeling guilty.
I know that I shouldn't compare myself to others, but it's hard not to when it feels like everyone around me is doing so much better. I feel like a failure and that I am not living up to my potential.
Has anyone else gone through something like this? How did you deal with it? I could really use some advice and support right now. Thanks for listening.

2023.03.26 14:20 CantComeUpWUsername Question about URL forwarding

I just bought a domain with Porkbun, I would like to forward the domain to my Etsy shop. A dedicated domain looks much cleaner than a domain which is why I got a dedicated domain!
Now while setting up the forwarding it gives me several options, I'm not sure which one I'm supposed to pick. As I said, the domain is solely meant to forward to my Etsy shop when clicked.
It first asks me for a 'HOSTNAME' and tells me to leave it blank to forward the root domain, I'm assuming I'm supposed to leave this blank.
Then there's an option for 'Wildcard Forwarding' this option is automatically checked. It says: ''To forward all traffic to your domain, leave the hostname field above blank and leave this box checked.'' so I'm again assuming I should leave this checked as is.
Then there are advanced settings which is where I get a little confused. There are three options: 'Temporary Redirect (302 / 307)' which is the one selected by default, 'Permanent Redirect (301)', and 'masked'. Then there's also the option to check a box called 'Include the requested URI path in the redirection.'
I was worried that temporary meant that at a certain point, it'll stop forwarding the domain to my Etsy shop but reading the instruction manual on Porkbun's website it appears that that's not the case and temporary is the better option just in case in the future I decide to supplement my Etsy shop with a separate webshop and change the forwarding options. Am I interpreting all this correctly?

2023.03.26 14:19 TTVBuddhaxii Regarding the Snaxland hate

Alright so for the past month or 2 i’ve seen a lot of talk on how Snax has fell off, or at least hasn’t been as good as their past years, then Friday I stumbled upon a ent that had posted a list for tourists or people looking for solid bud, and Snax was on the list, so I decided to comment my 2 cents and even got a dm from a manager from Snax for 10% off my order, went ahead and headed down to Boulder yesterday to check out the store front. Here’s a couple things I have to share ab my experience.
First off, I grabbed 2 eighths, both from Snax grow, Melroze and some SFV that looked liked they had been stocked prior to me walking in, for $40 Im not only impressed, Im insanely surprised due to the fact of all the talk they get against their brand, I smoked a 2 grammer wood, and when I say that was the smoothest wood I’ve ever smoked, and i’m most certainly not the biggest wood smoker, the Melroze broke down super sticky leaving my fingers coated like I just trimmed, has a nice candy/sweet nose on it, all clumped up together sticking to itself after breaking it down, smoked really smooth and flavors didnt get overwhelming from the wood, I had picked up 2 eighths from The Center 2 weeks ago of their in house bud and definitely some solid flavors, for the same price but I had came during happy hr, so I am very pleased with Snax selection, I also got to smell more of their flavs that had been grabbed at more and I really wasn’t disappointed nose wise on all their selection.
Now my shopping experience, I am pretty frequently at Eclipse or Maikoh, so I’m pretty in tune when it comes to getting a solid budtender thats not cash grabbing me, and I will say I definitely was surprised with the guy that helped me at Snax, not only were both the budtenders helpful, they knew how to keep a convo flowing which I was very happy with bc I’ve been to plenty of dispos where it is damn near a one way street for the convo.
All in all i’m very impressed with Snax, and I know every person is different, but I think if you haven’t given them a shot or maybe its been a while, I think you go check the flavs and you’ll def find some fueg coming from the Snax team!

2023.03.26 14:18 throwaway99991999199 24M here. please help, something feels wrong.

24M, 5.7 in,120 lbs. Average smoker ( probably like 1 or 2 a day) , smokes weed (been off of it for a month now). I felt emptiness near my left side pubic area after I masturbated 4-5 times in the span of few hours for 3-4 days straight (now I drastically reduced it to once a week). About 6 months ago in the middle of the night out of nowhere I had a sharp excruciating pain in my lower left abdomen (navel height) , it was so bad I couldn’t straighten my back , had to lay there like a spiral (happened once before this incident). It was there for approximately 90 mins and it went away. Next day felt normal. Now my pee is kinda foamy ( 2 out of 5-6) and peeing after I had a meal. My penis feels weak, libido has reduced a a lot, my sperm is watery, I feel like I lost something within me. (Weighted the same over the past 3-4 years, my libido was pretty high even though I masturbated like crazy).
Don’t know whats wrong, it’s freaking me out to the point I’m losing sleep. Would greatly appreciate your help. Thanks.
(Sorry for my English if I’ve made any mistakes, not a native English speaker).

2023.03.26 14:17 mazzystar333 Ndad making fun of my appearance in front of my friend

my narcissistic dad has a tendency to put down my appearance, always commenting on my eyebrows, face and hair. Ive had body dysmorphia so im especially perhaps sensitive to any comments.
It’s really not his place as im 19f and leaving for university soon. Yesterday I spent my own money to go to a hair salon for the first time for some highlights ive been wanting for a while. My hair naturally, is dark, but the change was noticeable, I was so excited for it and even brought my friend along as she also wanted to be there for me. I also didnt want to go too light and have my parents say ive ruined my hair and look bad.
Even though I planned to walk home my dad turned up, and said he’d drop my friend home too, as soon as we get in the car hes asking what did u even get done, saying he was imagining gold or blonde hair, something bright. I explained that it might look lighter when the toner washes out but after having spent nearly 6hrs i was internally so gutted. He continues to berate me and making stupid jokes like “how much did it cost to get nothing” in front of my friend and shes just awkwardly laughed. I started crying after she left and he said “i just said that in front of her as a joke i swear theres a difference”.. like what.
Im also learning to drive and drove home in the car when we dropped her- and i began crying again whilst because i was so overwhelmed after what his jokes and he punched me whilst I was driving it was so scary and this morning hes asking to go driving as if nothing happened.

2023.03.26 14:16 Johnny_Charisma Bowie album ranking

None of these are bad, some are just better than others
  1. Hours: Just isn't for me, the songs are ok, but not something I really enjoy (fav track: Something in the Air)
  2. Black Tie White Noise: A really good album, great work by Reeves Gabrels, but not very memorable for me (fav track: You've Been Around)
  3. Buddha in Suburbia: The instrumental parts of the album were amazing, but the other stuff was not very memorable (fav track: Ian Fish UK Heir)
  4. Let's Dance: The title track is a bit unoriginal and China Girl was better as an Iggy Pop song, otherwise a great album (fav track: Cat People (Putting Out Fire))
  5. Tonight: Most songs are amazing, but it was a very similar to Let's Dance (fav track: Blue Jean)
  6. Reality: A fine album, but i find some tracks to be a bit cringe and then I realise it's Bowie (fav track: Fly)
  7. Heathen: An amazing album, it's nice to see Bowie be more like he was at the start, but it's not as good as his later albums (fav track: Everyone Says Hi)
  8. Never Let Me Down: Great album, Japanese version is awesome, the songs have really interesting titles, but it has the same problem as Heathen (fav track: Zeroes)

2023.03.26 14:15 JhalMoody25 Living your best life is the best revenge.

Hey Ladies, I have been seeing surge in the post about men marrying a woman through AM immediately after ending long-term relationships and what can be done about it. As someone, who went through same ordeal two years ago, here are my two cents:
Background: Let's call my ex "POS" ( idea stolen from a sub member) & his/our mutual friend is "Loser".
So, two years ago, my ex decided to call it off with me and get married to a girl in AM, day after our breakup. He was looking for AM the entire time and kept me blindsided. We have discussed marriage but had our disagreements regarding when to have children and MIL living situation. Once his probation period ended, he told me he wants to visit home in India (we live abroad) as he misses his family. I help him buy presents for his entire family, lend him my cabin bag and off he goes. 6 days later, he calls me at night and asks me, if I want to marry him. I tell him, i am not sure yet because we still have alot of discussions left and he says, i have to say yes or no. In a fit of rage, I say no, and he says okay, i will look for someone else then (i ignored this, as I thought we both are angry) and disconnected the call. He called me next morning and told me he is getting "engaged" day after and we are done. Few months later, he let it slip to a friend that he actually got married, not engaged, as he had to file his wife's family reunion visa and that friend told me. I have supported this man through his dad's death in covid and unemployment phase. I don't want to recollect the next six months of my life. I stopped using social media, went NC and even avoided the mutual friends who could tell me about him.
Current story: Now, I am dating my incredible bf for nearly an year and I am in a very healthy space. I got a promotion recently, my L1 visa for usa is raised and I will shift by the end of the year, if everything goes well. My side hustle is also doing extremely well, as I stumbled on some very rich clients and I got my dream car last year. My now bf also encouraged me to go to gym and hooked me up with a dietician. In short, I am thriving in my life rn.
Few weeks ago: So, i went to a grad school friends gathering few weeks ago, for the very first time in two years. On the topic of dating/relationships, i told them i am dating my current bf. I also showed them some our pics from the greece vacation we took on my bday. My current bf is a doctor ( literally in top 50 in NEET UG in first attempt), has a great body (gym enthusiast), a smokeshow and comes from generational wealth. He is also younger than me. He has basically everthing my ex is insecure about.
A week ago: Loser from that gathering went and tattled about it to POS. Now, POS is back from woodworks and he asked loser if i can talk to him. I unblock POS and he starts messaging me. After few pleasantries, he congratulates me for achieving everything, we had dreamt together (working in usa and side hustle+car). I ask him about his wife and he goes on a rant that how she has not been able to find a job yet and he will have to now invests in her masters. He lamented how I was the anchor of his life and he feels so lost now. If i could refer him to my company as his job is dicey at his company ( he was work student at my company but couldn't convert to FTE). How he was cornered by her mom and sisters into the wedding. How I have moved on from him now. I am ngl, i actually revelled in his misery. I let him speak alittle bit more. Then he asked me, if I ever missed him or thought about him? I replied with a "No, i didn't". Then he asks me, when did i become so heartless? (lol). I just tell him that thank you for ending our relationship else I would have settled for a -2 when I deserved a 10. With this, i cut the call and block him again. Now loser calls me again next day and tells me that I have been cruel to POS and punching him down in his hard time. I ask loser to STFU and block him too.
My ex made a very calculated move to get into AM. He married someone who worked in IT, as he was banking on the fact that she will get a job quickly ( In our work country, it's easier for IT) and will also subjugate to his insane fam. But his wife used to work in dotnet which is an outdated technology and with current job market, its really hard to get a job. He thought, i will be lost in life and will not get anyone because I was turning 28 soon. Now his own job is on line due to the current market and wife is also unemployed. He comes from a lower middle class background, so I know this is hurting him.
TLDMoral of the story: Best revenge is to go live your best life. The woman he married is not better than you. She is just like you, another victim. At worst, she puts up with his ridiculous misogynistic demands and patriarchal family. This is the best thing that happened to you as it saved your from years of abuse and toxicity. DON'T WASTE EVEN A SECOND MORE OF YOUR LIFE OVER THE POS. Work on yourself, go to gym, work on your career, get into therapy, keep your friends close, travel. When you are healed and have worked on yourself to observe toxic patterns, you will attract the right kind of man in your life.
My ex would show up to even my professional meetings with seniors because he was insecure. My current bf told me i can decide if I want to talk to my ex or not. He doesn't cares about it and trusts me. Trust me, you will upgrade. When you find that man, you will not even care about the mumma's boy who didn't have enough spine to fight for you.
Men like these are insecure momma's boys who will go and live in the womb again, if possible. As soon as they see the ex getting a new man and thriving, they come crawling back to try to ruin her life again. The only person i feel bad about is the poor wife. She deserves better. It's not your fault, it never was your fault. It's not her fault either, it was never her fault either. A man will always have the audacity, if nothing else.
Just wanted to share a positive story post break up because i see so many heartbroken sistas here recently. Don't forget the queen you are. You made him your world but have you heard, you can always reclaim the land💃

2023.03.26 14:14 stark33per Overall game impressions and feedback.

I ve been playing all Diablo games and enjoyed all of them for god knows how many hours. D3 was my least favourite but I still played it a lot and enjoy it.
As for Diablo 4.
The BAD:
The game feels often pointless, as you are wandering big pretty and empty zones, barely seeing mobs, or some insignificant forgettable ones. To what good is a big open world if it is empty. Never had that feeling in D3, each zone had a specific story role, purpose, event, mob type and wasn t too big. I can remember them all by names. Here I can remember the main town and another one because it has a blacksmith. Otherwise just ai generated name zones which have nothing to do or to offer besides being just filler.
I didn t want to pre-order and this beta convinced me that I shouldn t even buy the game at launch. It is doubtful that the technical issues will be fixed in such a short time. Not to mention the rather repetitive and empty open world and the bare-bones arpg feature. The game skeleton is there but that s it mostly. Maybe he also has a hood. Or maybe not. Sure if the game did not cost 70$ and would ve been marketed as early access yeah. But with other competitors it s just not worth it in my opinion. PoE is free, PoE 2 will be free, Last Epoch is far cheaper and so on.
The only thing this game currently has over the others is the Diablo franchise name and some tied in nostalgia with npc and item names. Just like the initial runewords plan for D4. They were adding something which used the name but had nothing to do with the original feature. This is how Diablo 4 feels to me overall. Sure, the bigger budget shows in many aspects compared to the other listed aRPGs. But damn it, even Wolcen at its disastrous launch had more innovative elements and less game breaking bugs and technical issues. At least you could avoid the server issues playing offline.
If anyone disagress with stuff here just bring an argument for a discussion don t just call me whatever. What I say here could be wrong but it s just how I see the game currently. Maybe devs read feedback and try to do something. I do want this game to get good and to play it for a long time. Not one gazillion years like d2 or half gazillion years like D3, but something longer than few weeks. It seems to me that the art and music devs had a lot of creative freedom. I don t think the systems devs had so much creative freedom, hence we get this basic rpg with no innovative features at all. This could ve easily been D3 - remake. I am sure that the devs with more creative freedom, would ve done interesting and innovative aRPGs like the competitiors.
I ll keep checking on the game. Maybe after half a year a lot of the stuff gets fixed or corrected or re-made. Maybe it will be bundled with a game-fixing expansion, who knows.

Hi guys, I need advice as I feel like I’m going crazy for thinking about this. I’m currently an F2 and have been making long term plans regarding my finances. As all of you have, I have worked very hard to get to this position. However, looking at consultant salaries after tax, it’s barely 6k net a month. I have family who own businesses. Nothing major just small family restaurants. My uncle who owns a fish and chips shop told me that on a good week he takes home 10k a month and 5k on a bad week. If you find the middle number that is 7.5 x 52 = £390,000 a year! I would also like to mention it’s mostly a cash in hand business, so he pays minimal tax on that. Honestly it feels so demotivating to know that I studied so hard to earn a fraction of my uncles fish and chips shop. It’s made me realise that in the UK, you will never have a financially comfortable life being an employee, as the more you earn the more tax they take. As a result I’m thinking to leave medicine to open my own fish and chips shop. Feels crazy, but what do you guys think.

2023.03.26 14:14 infinitum3d [let’s build] d100 mischievous situations a mimic backpack can get into

A player wants to have a mimic backpack - I need tips for interesting encounters
First off, let me clarify. I’m not asking if this is a good idea or if I should allow it. We’re all well experienced and I’ve already explained it’s not a Familiar or Pet that they control. It’s an NPC which I control.
What I’m looking for are ideas for mischief this mimic can cause.
The group is five Level 7 characters. They found this mimic in a dungeon. He’s a lazy mimic and small and sentient/smart enough to realize Adventurers are scary/dangerous, so he made a deal with the party; bring me food and I’ll tell you everything I know about this dungeon, where all the traps and treasures and monsters are that I know of
For the last four sessions, this has been really fun. They feed him, and he tells them things like, “up the stairs and to the left is a magically trapped door. It’s electrocuted someone three different times so I ate them. There’s probably something valuable behind it.
They figure out a way past the trap, go into the room, fight some giant spiders, and get a magic wand and some gold from one of the corpses in the webbing.
They feed the spiders to the mimic and he tells them about another place.
So now they know they’re getting close to clearing it out, and they’ll be leaving but they don’t want to leave their buddy the mimic to starve or get killed by other Adventurers, so the Thief decides he wants the mimic to be his backpack, figuring the stickiness means it won’t fall off or get stolen and they can keep their gold and stuff safe.
I’m loving the idea. But this mimic has never been out in the civilized world before. And he’s always hungry.
But I’m hoping for other funny/silly but not totally stupid/bad mischief it can get into.
Any ideas? Thanks!
  1. Obviously I’m going to have him slip away and eat a ham at the butchers
  2. Eat a chicken (or two) on a farm
  3. Eat the kettle of beef stew in the tavern.
  4. Pretend it’s a stool and change its size (smaller) or move when someone tries to sit on it.
  5. Change color or material while the Thief is talking to people. “Wasn’t your pack green?
  6. You enter a tavern and find a table. The mimic slips off and sets on the floor near your chair like a normal backpack. Unfortunately, being so sticky, it accidentally catches a serving girl by the ankle and she spills her tray of ales all over the group of Half-Orc mercenaries at the table next to you.

2023.03.26 14:13 TheSweet_Science7956 Warning to fellow Aspies - ChatGTP could be a serious problem for us...or it could be our savior...

Correct me if I am wrong but I associate my crazy high level of curiosity with being on the spectrum. I have been playing with ChatGTP a little bit and the ability to get answers about anything so quickly and efficiently feels like a dream come true. But I could also see how it could become as addictive as hard drugs to NTs.
Anyone else experience this at all?
On the other hand I can't help but feel like this could help us too in immense ways. I feel like that has to be able to be used to help us simulate conversations or improve our communications in some way.. if not not in the near future.
Anyone know of any other good threads discussing this here?
