2023.03.25 12:55 Euphoric-Statement28 [MOBILE / TABLET][2005s - 2010s?] Game where you play as some sort of blue or purple squid/jellyfish.

Platform(s): Mobile, but I specifically remember playing it on a Tablet of sorts.
Genre: Top down 2D(?) game with a 'drag' move style. Your character follows wherever your finger was on screen. Either that, or it was a screen joystick. Sort of a survival exploration game.
Estimated year of release: Likely 2005-2010, BUT it could have gone up to 2015- I don't really remember. Felt like a more modern game.
Graphics/art style: Slightly cartoon-ish, but I do remember there being realistic details. I'd say if 'Zen Koi' and 'Spore' fused together. I remember the game having some bright / neon colors as well as a possible dark background.
Notable characters: The main characteplayer was some sort of blue or purple jellyfish/squid alien creature with it's eyes and mouth on the front of it's head. I may be wrong, but I believe it only had two tentacles- both of them having a type of bulb tipping them. These bulbs would glow when you'd spin. I don't remember much about the enemies, but I believe they had some type of layered, spikey armor on them?... Maybe red or orange colored. I think they would move very 'chaotically' in a back and forth swishing motion. There were bigger boss enemies as well later on in the game.
Notable gameplay mechanics: You fight and defend yourself from the enemies by spinning around. The bulbs on your tails slam into enemies to deter them- I'm not entirely sure if it was possible for them to die or not- but they would swim away if you gave them a hit. There were power ups around the map as well- something that makes you go faster, provides armor, added spikes on your bulbs- maybe even more tails. The game was very similar to Zen Koi regarding the top down appearance and play style- plus, it did take place in an aquatic world. The characters weren't very developed either if that makes sense- similar to the creatures that you'd find in the 'cell stage' of 'Spore'.
Other details: I think I remember the beginning of the game showing a cutscene of the player hatching from an egg- like a tadpole egg. The enemies may have been alien, or just a predatory / parasitic species. The player character does glow if I remember correctly- not just on the bulbs that are at the ends of their tails. You may have had to sort of swish back and forth to move instead of making the character follow your finger.

2023.03.25 12:54 Late_Problem_2022 help with a task

Hi all, I am trying to learn(been reading/practicing for the past 2 months now) and I try to find exercise online and try to complete . one I found the other day was to make a sort of task manager application, where you need to make functions to create users double check if usernames are duplicated, adding tasks, viewing tasks etc. I've managed to complete most of it but I am stuck at one part. I'll be showing on this post the part where I am stuck and I'll be posting my code in the comments below. any help/guidance is greatly appreciated.
Add an option to generate reports to the main menu of the application. ● When the user chooses to generate reports, two text files, called task_overview.txt and user_overview.txt, should be generated. Both these text files should output data in a user-friendly, easy to read manner. o task_overview.txt should contain: ▪ The total number of tasks that have been generated and tracked using the ▪ The total number of completed tasks. ▪ The total number of uncompleted tasks. ▪ The total number of tasks that haven’t been completed and that are overdue. ▪ The percentage of tasks that are incomplete. ▪ The percentage of tasks that are overdue. o user_overview.txt should contain: ▪ The total number of users registered with ▪ The total number of tasks that have been generated and tracked using ▪ For each user also describe: ▪ The total number of tasks assigned to that user. ▪ The percentage of the total number of tasks that have been assigned to that user ▪ The percentage of the tasks assigned to that user that have been completed ▪ The percentage of the tasks assigned to that user that must still be completed ▪ The percentage of the tasks assigned to that user that have not yet been completed and are overdue ● Modify the menu option that allows the admin to display statistics so that the reports generated are read from task_overview.txt and user_overview.txt and displayed on the screen in a user-friendly manner. If these text files don’t exist (because the user hasn’t selected to generate them yet), first call the code to generate the text files.

2023.03.25 12:54 Popipoipo Yellow cyst/lump in my throat

23yo. Male. Painful yellow lump on my throat I have pain in my left jaw for almost 3 weeks. I went to the ENT, and he said I had sinusitis. He gave me azithromycin and prednisone. However, the pain in my jaw only gets worse. I went to a neurologist, because they suspected TMJ since I hit my head a few days before the jaw pain, I did a CT scan, but it didn't show sinusitis or any broken jaw.
But I also feel a pain in my throat, so they told me it could be an infection. I noticed that the side that hurts has two or three yellow nodules. When I squeeze under my jaw and feel them, it hurts a lot. It's only on the left side. I can't open my mouth, I can't move my jaw, it hurts so much.

2023.03.25 12:53 alarming_jwala relationship advice to a 27F

Hello, I'm in need of some advice. Please assist me if you are able. So, in my business school, I started seeing this 28M. We had both ended a long-term romance 2 months before meeting each other. He began pursuing me with all of his energy and time, and I was sceptical since I am someone who typically takes her time to give in. We went on trips together, and it seemed like he was my guy the whole time. So, from November to December, I began to feel more confident, and I eventually caved. I didn't say anything, but my behaviours indicated that I am also interested in him. This is when his ex, who had previously broken up with him, enters:) She said some mean things about me, my body, and how there was an error on my LinkedIn and wtv, and that's when I realised the guy was being a little aloof. I inquired right away. He cried and howled in front of me, thinking he was doing something wrong by ducking out when I got involved, but he needs to give his past relationship a chance so he can sleep easily at night. He sobbed a lot and felt like he was betraying me, but he stated he had no alternative. The next day, I contacted him crying about how much I missed him, and he came to meet me while he was attempting to fix things with her. Then I ended everything again, but he came to me and said that his ex and he chose to end things because they were too toxic for each other and they were at different stages in their lives, so they couldn't be together. I said you show to me that you're not leaving for her again and that you're not doing this on the side business, and only then would I consider returning. So it was just him trying to be there for me without getting physical for around 10-20 days. Following that, we went on another trip and virtually lived together. But, there was a lot of hot and cold throughout the entire duration. Where he was acting well one day then acting like a douche the next. By douche, I mean he went out of his way to do a lot of things for me, but when I expected him to do them, he said, "You shouldn't keep these expectations, we're just in a situationship." The second twist is that we believed we'd decide what to do about this scenario when I moved towns in March, which was intended to happen. We had multiple conversations about the future before moving, and he again gave me mixed signals, saying that he likes me but is too afraid to get into a relationship because of his past trauma, that he only wants to date to marry and that this situation will be long distance which cannot become a marriage, that he is afraid to commit to a relationship where you are expected to constantly text or call the other person, and a hundred other things. I simply stated that if he is not emotionally capable of providing me with emotional support, then we cannot be in this relationship. He expressed his fear of being hurt>>>>> his worry of losing me or desiring this situation. But then we had another talk in which he stated that he needs some time to figure his things out. And figure out what this thing is. Even when I moved out, I decided to give him some space. Currently, I am the only one making an attempt. He texts me every day, but no calls or video calls are initiated by him. He updates me on his day, but there is no other initiation. He's running out of money, so I'm going to his city with my friends next month, and I asked him if he wanted to share rooms with me, and he said he needs his own space with him, and if my friends are around, he'd rather stay at home.... So I assumed his willingness to stay with me was less important than anything else. Please assist me in gaining perspective.

2023.03.25 12:53 bluedecemberart Anyone find any fun vintage mail treasures lately?

CW: Parent death, but no details, just that it happened.
So, background! My dad was an editorial/news photographer for a long time, and shot a lot of famous people on and off the clock (hey, that press pass was useful! 😂) But he's also where I got my love of sending mail - he LOVED postcards, and was constantly making and sending objectively weird but charming cards to everyone he knew as part of his art. At his memorial art show, I was gifted/got to see literally a life's worth of mail that all of his friends had saved. It was really sweet.
He also co-owned a postcard company for a while, so at some point I'll dig out the uh, 1k+ cards he left me and start them on their final journey around the world. I think it will be a fitting tribute.
Anyway, all of this is to say that I was digging around in some old photos and found THE BEST CARD EVER:
Maybe it's dumb, but y'all....this postcard is not only the super rare version that's worth $15-20, but it's no longer under copyright so I can clean it up in photoshop and reproduce it all I want! 🤩
Anyone else find some fantastic mail treasures hidden away lately?

2023.03.25 12:53 8kai0man8 How do I help my cat with back pain?

My cat had an injury while I was out on vacation and my mom was supposed to be watching him. He is 2 years old now and this was a little over 6 months ago. When we took him to the vet, he got an x-ray that showed compressed vertebrae towards the middle of his back. This left him limping and much less active than he used to be.
Some days his pain seems to be better and he can walk normally. Others, however he walks with a noticeable limp and arch in his back. This pain seems to get worse if he lays down for too long without moving, but at the same time seems to get worse if he moves around too much.
He can't really jump anymore, often climbing up onto the bed or couch with Brute force upper body strength. I do my best to help him up whenever I can and try to make stairs for him in places but he rarely uses them.
Tonight was the first night he refused to climb into bed with me; he almost always sleeps in my arms. He mowed at me to come get him, so I did. He's sleeping against my side right now, purring himself to sleep, but I can't help but feels sad that I don't know how to help him feel better.
Could anyone please point me in the direction of treatments that I could do to help alleviate his pain? He's such a young, sweet, little guy, I can't stand the thought of him being in pain for his whole life.

2023.03.25 12:52 Acceptable_Egg5560 The Nature of a Giant [29]

Praises again to u/TheManwithaNoPlan for helping edit!
Memory transcript: Tarlim, Venlil civilian. Date: [Standardized human time] September 2nd, 2136
I awoke in darkness. Strange. Why haven’t my blinds opened yet? I shook my head and gave a yawn as my mind caught up with itself. I could barely see my finger in front of my eyes. I reach my foot out to turn off the fan proactively, but my paw only manages to swat the air. What? Wait… My mind, jarred by the odd circumstances, finally relayed my current whereabouts to me. I’m not in my room or on a train. I’m in Jacob’s room! Those blackout curtains work great! Though, they don’t have the option to automatically open.
“Hmgh,” I hear a mumble down by my tail, “muh huh?” A feminine mumble!
My memory rushes back in full. I helped Sharnet calm down yesterday. Jacob and I talked for about a quarter of a claw, or an “hour” in his time. By the end, I had found myself yawning. The train had basically come in during the end of Sharnet and I’s wake cycle, and our bodies were telling us it was time to sleep. I had wanted to stay awake and talk, but he noticed and basically demanded I get some sleep. “We will have plenty of time to visit on the ride over and at Dawn Creek,” he had justified. Then he offered both me and Sharnet his bed.
I tried to object, but he wouldn’t hear of it. Said there were plenty of places he could “crash for the night” as he closed the curtains. Kept saying it was the least he could do. I wish I would have argued more, but as soon as he showed me the light switch, the darkness of the room made me dead on my feet. Those instincts hit HARD. He then just wished me a good night and stepped out of the room.
I had to hurry to remove my braces before I completely passed out. If I remember correctly… I don’t. Oh well. “Sharnet?”
I felt her jolt against my legs. She had basically claimed my tail as a pillow when we crawled into the bed last night. I bet she’s momentarily forgotten our position as well. “Wha! Who, where…?” I heard the flap of her ears as she shook her head. “Right. Hey Tarlim.”
“Hey,” I responded. “Could you get the lights or curtains? I can’t find my braces.”
A grunt of agreement sounded, I felt weight disappear from my tail, and then I heard the sound of claws on wooden flooring. With a rustle, the curtains opened and light flooded into the room. I had to squint to let my eyes adjust, but soon I was finally able to see where I left my braces.
There they were, lain haphazardly in the middle of the room. Must have accidentally tossed them farther than I meant. Just… barely out of reach. Sharnet saw me reaching and stepped towards them? What is- she picked them up and handed them to me! I… I hadn’t even thought to ask!
“Th-thank you,” I stammered before moving to place them on my legs. Sharnet watched silently as they self-tightened against my legs. Once they were done, I stood up from the bed, not a bit of pain in my joints.
“So…” Sharnet said with a yawn, “what now?”
“Now,” I responded, striding to the corner that we had left our packs, “is first-claw grooming.” Opening my pack, I pulled out my trusty brush.
“Oh!” Sharnet exclaimed, before she began to fidget. “I, um… I don’t have one. I just used the brushes they provided on the train.”
“That’s-nngh-okay,” I responded, removing a particularly stubborn tangle in my head fur, “I can help you groom.”
“Really?” She raised her ears in surprise. “You… you would groom me?”
“Of course!” I responded, removing some lint from my chest. “Miss Paly taught me how to do a ‘Quick and Proper’ grooming, as she calls it. Get out the lint and tangles, three times over before moving, long smooth movements, and there we go!” I posed myself to show I had made my torso fur properly flow.
“Wow.” Sharnet looked at me impressed. “Are you… and are you okay with grooming me?”
“Why, yes!” I swung my tail over to more easily brush its tip poff. “It would be rude not to. Isn’t that like what your parents taught you?”
Sharnet said nothing for a while as I continued to brush my tail. “They taught me, but I never really had anyone to go through with it,” she finally said. “I had always been moving after I moved out. Always after information for an article. I… I only ever used salons or combed myself.”
“Well then, I suppose this will be new for the both of us.” I waved my tail, feeling the swish of my smooth fur. “Even when Madam Pala was teaching me, she still cared for her own fur.” I sat down so I was more on her level. “So please forgive me if I’m a bit awkward. I will try my best.”
I held out my brush as Sharnet stared at me. She gripped the fur against her legs. Anxious. Did I misread the situation? Am I overstepping? Sharnet soon shook her head with a huff and stepped forward, turning her back to face me. “Could you… start with the back?”
I felt my tail wag. “Certainly.”
I set the brush against her neck and drug it down til I reached her tail. I could see her muscles tense beneath her fur, but by my second pass she had begun to relax. By the time I had reached her snow-touched shoulders, I heard a purr. She even started turning so I could brush the rest of her. This… this was good. Like I was part of a herd. A small herd, but a herd nonetheless.
As I was getting the final tangle out of her tail, I heard the sound of someone tapping against wood. I flicked my ears to listen. What was that? The tapping came again, but this time I noticed it came from the door. Curiosity got to me, and since I was done with her back, I handed Sharnet my brush. “I think I’m done, but you can detail to your preference.”
“Oh!” She took my brush in her hand, seemingly disappointed that our grooming session was done. She gave a light bow. “Thank you for that.”
I signaled her “your welcome” with my tail and strode over to the door. The tapping began a third time as I reached down and swung it open. A blue spaceman stood with his arm stretched out, explaining the source of the sound.
“Ah, Howdy!” Jacob’s speaker sounded, “ Ah know y’all don’t need as much sleep as us, so ah hope ah didn’t keep y’all waiting!”
I flicked my ears in greeting. “no, actually, we only recently woke up. How long were we asleep?”
“Way-all,” he drawled, placing his glove against the chin of his helmet, “ah only just got myself so… about seven hours… a claw and three quarters?”
My ears flew up in surprise, and I heard Sharnet give a stutter of confusion. We slept that much?
“I guess y’all slept in,” Jacob commented, “well ah was just wanting to let y’all know that breakfas-ah, “first-meal” is being served in the cafeteria! Most people have already headed down. Some human recipes, but everything is Venlil-safe! And ah do mean everything! Y’all want to come?”
I wagged my tail delightedly. “Absolutely! One sec first.” I left the door open as I strode over to my pack and pulled out my pill bottles. Heart strengthener, hormone blocker, painkillers! Just toss in the mouth and swallow.
“Tarlim,” Sharnet whispered to me, “are you sure about that? I mean, I’m able to handle just being around a human, but…” She looked back towards the door and pulled my head down to her level, which I allowed. She spoke in barely a whisper. “This would be them eating! What if they can’t resist…you know?”
I thought about her words. This would be a dangerous situation according to what most believe. But those “most” were following the words of people that allowed the correctional facility to exist. They were wrong about me, so I had complete confidence they were wrong about the humans, too.
“Remember Kaeden?” I whispered, “I don’t know if you noticed, but when he came out of the room, he had his mouth uncovered. You saw, right?”
She was shaking, but she affirmed with a flick of her ears.
I returned the gesture. “And his companions showed no signs of fear. Even from someone who considered themselves a monster.”
Sharnet lowered her ears in slight shame, so I allowed my tail to rest against her back. I thought back to my first meeting with Jacob, and I suddenly realized something. A bit strange, but it just might work! I patted Sharnet’s back with my tail, prompting her to look up at me. “Here, let me show you something.”
I opened my mouth slack-jawed, letting it hang open in front of Sharnet. As expected, she looked at me confusedly. “Why are you opening your mouth at me?”
I attempted to speak mostly without the use of my teeth, which was harder than I had anticipated, so I just closed my mouth and pointed to my teeth. “My teeth are bigger than his! What can he do that I can’t?”
I watched her face. For a moment, I was afraid it wouldn’t work, or even backfire as she looked even more confused. After a moment, though, it seemed to click in her head. Her ears rose again in realization. “You…You’re right.” She sounded almost in awe at the revelation. “Kaeden’s teeth were pretty small, yeah! I doubt they could even break skin!”
I brushed my tail against her back in confidence, “And you heard his companions. They both fought him and held their own! You should be able to…” I trailed off as her expression fell again. Right, loaded topic. Dumb brain. I shook my head and restarted from the top.
“If anything happens,” I said, “I promise I will stop them. You have my word, Sharnet. You’re safe here with me around.”
I looked at her, and for a brief moment, I thought I saw a hint of orange appear in her ears. “Th-thank you. I… I think I can go.”
I wagged my tail at her enthusiastically. “I knew you would.” I stood up from the bed. “I think that we’ve kept Jacob waiting long enough.”
With a wave of her tail, Sharnet moved to grab her belt pack and holopad. Once it was secure, we ducked out of the room. Jacob clapped his hands together. “Right then! Ah’ll lead y’all to the cafe!”
Apparently, it was on the bottom floor. I was about to enter the stairwell, but Jacob put a damper in those plans as he guided me to the elevator. I was surprised to find that I could technically fit inside with only a crouch instead of the borderline acrobatics I usually have to do.
The cafeteria was to the side of the lobby. Jacob led us through the door and I stood to get a look. It was rather sizable. Humans and Venlil were sitting at tables together, there was a small line at a food counter and… and…
What in the name of the Tenants is that sun-blessed smell?
I took a scenting breath, and there it was again. Salty, earthy, some cut grass, and a slight burn that seemed only to enhance the whole profile. Jacob was saying something, but I didn’t hear him as I strode forward, following the wonderful smell. It came from the counter. The people in the line parted as I strode forward. Where was it coming from? This? This? No…
Before me was a platter consisting of 6 large green leaves holding a mixture of brown cubes and small pieces of white grains inside them. The server was a human wearing a white apron pelt, and they looked up at me as I practically drooled over the food. “Uh… can I help you?”
“What,” I pointed to the food, “are those things?”
The server looked between me and the unknown meal, thinking on what to say. “It’s… i-it’s tofu and rice on a lettuce leaf. Do you… want one?”
I wagged my tail before remembering who I was speaking to. “Yes. Very much, please. As soon as possible.”
One of the others in the line passed over a plate, and the server slid one of the leaves onto it. He added a spoon and handed it to me apprehensively. “Is there, uh, anything else I can get you…sir?”
I didn’t answer as I grabbed the plate. I scooped up a spoonful of the sticky grains and one of the cubes and, after only a moment of hesitation, slid it into my mouth.
Salty. Savory. Toothsome. Firm enough against my teeth, but not so firm as to crunch. Something in this sung sweet songs to my tongue. Satisfying a craving I barely knew I had. Something beyond my craving for Stringfruit. Like part of me declared that I had never even eaten before now. I placed the plate onto the platter.
“Sir,” the server spoke, “if it’s not too your liking you-”
He cut himself off as I picked up the platter. I needed it. This was mine now. I felt everyone starting at me, but I didn’t care. I couldn’t care. There was an empty four-seat table nearby that had the chairs detached, so I pulled one out with my food and sat down to feast.
“Okay,” I heard Jacob speak before I could properly dig in, “so you were definitely hungry.”
I looked at him and Sharnet. His eyes were hidden, but Sharnet’s expression held enough surprise for the both of them. Sharnet. She must know this ecstasy. I slid the one I had already started off the plate and replaced it with a fresh leaf and held it out to her. “Eat,” I practically demanded. She was taken aback by the forcefulness of it, but gingerly took the delicacy from my hand. With a satisfied huff, I picked up a full leaf from the platter and began to imitate a vacuum.
Oh, Glory! What wonders the humans could make! If I were to be served such a meal every day, I would kiss them on the mouth, predator or not! I had just finished my third leaf when the world once more came into focus around me. Jacob had gotten some kind of whiteish slurry and sat across from me with his helmet removed, a visor mask obscuring his eyes. Sharnet was next to me mostly staring at me in awe, having only eaten about half of her own portion.
But what caught my attention the most was the crowd around our table. A herd of no less than thirty humans and Venlil combined stared at me from around our table. The voice in the back of my mind told me I should be scared or nervous, but it was promptly silenced by another bite of tofu.
“Excuse me,” I heard a human step forward. He was male, his skin as dark as Noah’s appeared in the images. “Are you some kind of… Venbig?”
I swallowed my mouthful. “I’m sensing a pattern with that joke. But I assure you all that I am pure Venlil.”
The Venlil in the crowd seemed to relax at that assurance. Even though they were obviously comfortable being near humans, my presence still seemed to make them nervous. Wait, did THEY think I wasn’t a Venlil?
Distracting me from the sobering thought, a human with multiple pigments on his face stepped forward. “How are you so big? I mean, you’re huge!”
“It’s a condition,” I explained as I took another bite of tofu. “Marklen-Jauntes Syndrome. It’s very rare, but basically I never stopped growing.”
“Ah’m curious,” Jacob spoke, swallowing some of his white paste. “Bout how rare? It’s got a name an’ everything, so there’s musta been more like you.”
I wagged my tail. “From what I remember, recorded history shows about 301 individuals. That’s including myself.”
“What about now?” The dark skinned human asked. “Are there any others like you alive?”
“Yes, actually.” I moved to grab my pad, but I felt nothing on my shoulder. I remembered I had left it upstairs in my pack. “Well, I was going to show you, but I guess you’ll have to look it up. There is this white and tan woman somewhere on the leeward side of the planet towards the night. I haven’t met her, but if I remember correctly, I think she’d come up to my chin.” I tapped my snout. “I think her name was…”
“Lylina” I heard Sharnet say next to me, looking at her holonote. “That’s her name, Lylina. Says here that she lives near a small fruit town.”
“That’s her,” I swayed my tail towards Sharnet. “I got a no-reply message from her a year or so back with a well-wish inside. She’s the only other one with my condition that I personally know of.”
“And she only comes up to your chin?” A light-skinned man spoke. “You must be the tallest Venlil to ever exist!”
“Third, actually.” I finished another leaf’s worth of rice and tofu. “The tallest lived about 50 years ago. I’m about… four centimeters shorter than him.”
“The largest alive still ain’t no small feat, Tarlim!” Jacob praised.
“Yeah,” a man with blood-colored hair agreed, walking forward with a human data pad in their hands, “you must be famous! Can I get a picture?”
Famous. The translator gave it a positive meaning. I saw several other humans pulling out their small data pads and beginning to ask if they could get a photo as well. Even… even a couple Venlil did the same! They… wanted to be around me! They wanted me to be in a herd!
I wagged my tail and stood while I flicked my ears in a gesture of acceptance. The Venlil in the crowd caught on and started forwards, followed closely behind by their human partners. I was soon inundated with camera flashes and the sounds of lively conversation around me. These people didn’t cower away in fear or keep their distance. They were pressed against my fur, taking pictures with me and their human partners. Talking to me and answering in return! One kind Venlil even complimented me on my fur! It felt completely unreal, a dream made real! If I am dreaming now, I don’t ever want to wake up!
It took time, but all too soon I was posing for the last group. The humans had discovered that I could lift them onto my shoulders, so two asked me to do so at the same time. It wasn’t hard, and the crowd cheered my strength. After their pictures were done, I looked around to find my companions. I saw Jacob talking to a few humans. My ears caught him saying that his suit was a great idea and easier to wear than those masks. A couple touched their own visors as he showed off his helmet. So glad he’s having fun.
After a short glance through the crowd, I spied Sharnet talking to a pair of gray Venlil with her holonote held out. Her body language screamed nervousness. What were they talking about? Once I said my last good biddings, I shuffled closer to them so as not to disturb them. As much as I can, anyways.
“Yeah,” a gray male commented, “I can honestly say that this program has been an overall success. Empathy tests passing, the humans happily eat plants, anyone who denies those facts would have to be as bad as that captain who tortured Marcel and Slanek!”
Torture? That caused my ears to perk. “Hey, sorry to interrupt,” I strode over to them, “but did you say someone was tortured?”
The gray Venlil turned their attention towards me, and immediately I saw the telltale signs of fear that I’ve grown accustomed to. It’s lesser, but still there nevertheless. Guess he’s not in the exchange program. Must be an employee. “O-Oh, uh, you didn’t hear?”
I signed a no with my tail. His ears fell as he continued. “Marcel and Slanek had disappeared after the Arxur raid. They were thought dead like so many others, but it turned out that they got captured by a Federation ship! They held Marcel and brutally tortured him! Clawing at his eyes, starving him, beating him, they even threw Slanek in the same room with the full intent of watching him being eaten! And when he obviously wasn’t, the Gojid captain tried to shoot Marcel! The only reason they survived was because a Kholshian stood up to their captain and helped the two escape!”
“And thank god for them!” I heard Jacob speak behind me. He must have seen us talking and decided to come over. “Ah hope more people in your Federation act like that Kholshian than the Gojid! He ought to be a hero to his race!”
“I know!” The Venlil was quick to agree. Definitely used to humans. Just not me. “Can you believe it? How could someone just hold someone in one place to torture for their own amusement?”
I felt my expression fall. I can believe it very easily.
“Y-yes.” Sharnet stammered, gripping the fur on his legs, “It is horrible what some people can do.” She shook herself and took a more professional stance. “Do you mind if I quote you on that?”
“Sure, that’s fine with me.” He turned to his grey female companion, “what about you?”
The woman hadn’t said anything in the portion of conversation I had been present for. She had been staring at Sharnet with a contemplative look on her ears. “Have we met before?”
Sharnet flicked her ears in confusion. “I don’t… think so?”
“I’m sure we have. Those white spots on your head. I’ve seen them before…” the woman’s eyes widened in realization, “I loaded you onto the outgoing shuttle! What are you doing here? You were kicked out and sent to resocialization!”
Sharnet visibly shrunk at the accusation. “I, uh, I just…”
“Did you ditch your officers?” The woman continued, “they were supposed to collect you at Wayward Prime!”
Sharnet continued to stutter as my mind went back to the spaceport. Some officers near the entrance were asking if I caused a stampede, and then Sharnet and I walked out the building in a herd. Those officers had gotten there faster than they should.
“That, uh,” I spoke up, “that might have been partially my fault.”
“That doesn’t matter!” The woman exclaimed, pointing at Sharnet, “You are supposed to be with resocialization!” She pulled out a holonote from her own belt pack, “I’m calling security! You shouldn’t have been allowed in here in the first place!”
I looked down at Sharnet. She was breathing heavily and her eyes were darting all over the room. Her focus began to shift to a window facing outside. Tail twitching. Legs tense. The gray woman was calling in security, and Sharnet was... She was going to try and run!
With barely a thought, I reached down and picked her up. She jolted around in my arms and cried in surprise, but fell silent as I pulled her to my chest in a hug. “It’s okay,” I whispered in her ears, “you don’t need to run. I’m here. Focus... Breathe... Calm…”
As the seconds passed, her breathing slowly settled into a steady rhythm alongside my mantra as I repeated it back to her. Thankfully, my comforts seemed to be enough to stun the gray-furred woman into not completing her dial. I didn’t feel like having Sharnet escorted out in cuffs. “You don’t need to call that, ma’am. I’ll escort her out myself. We were just about to leave anyway.”
Jacob leaned back in surprise. “We are?”
I swayed my tail stiffly at him. “Yes. Since we slept for seven hours, you and I will need to head out soon to catch the next train to transfer back to Dawn Creek.”
“Dah!” Jacob exclaimed, “What da hail we waitin’ fer? C’mon!” He dashed right past the female guard heading out of the cafeteria.
I set Sharnet back on the ground and made to follow him. Wait. One last thing. I turned back and waved to the crowd. “It was great meeting all of… Y’all! I hope your time here on our planet is a good one!” I received a few cheers from the crowd, several giving joyful cries of “see ya Venbig!” I wagged my tail at the widespread acceptance and ducked out the door behind Sharnet and Jacob.
“Thank you for that,” Sharnet whispered, “again.”
I swayed my tail to signal that it was no bother. “I meant what I said, Sharnet. ‘If anything happens, I would stop them.’” I scratched an itch under my fur to give her a chance to respond. She didn't. I sighed. No avoiding it, I suppose. “So, you were supposed to meet some officers when you landed?”
Her ears pressed against her head as we all huddled into the elevator again. “I never got charged, but they did ordain that I had to go through at least 40 paws of resocialization.”
Jacob seemed to count something on his fingers before he tensed with realization. “Why, that’s about a month! S’pose it’s better than gettin’ charged for aggravated assault, though. What does… ‘resocialization’ entail?”
“I have to spend a set amount of time each paw with a herd chosen for me by the government. I’ll have to report to them every paw. Normally I could register my own herd, but my job sent me wandering so often that I never really…joined one.”
“Way-ell,” Jacob drawled, “what about your parents?”
She gave a short laugh. “It was deemed that direct family might reinforce certain undesirable behaviors rather than correct them. The herds are supposed to have at least some initial level of separation so that everyone actually socializes.”
I noticed a slight bitterness in her words. Something was being left unsaid. Possibly directed towards her parents, but whatever it was, she wasn’t ready to say.
The elevator opened onto the fifth floor and we stepped out to head back to the room. Jacob took the lead again as I talked to Sharnet. “I know you will be able to pass,” I told her as we walked. “I am, and always will be, blessed to have met you.”
Her tail sagged at my words. “You have done so much for me, Tarlim,” she whispered.
We reached the room to see Jacob come out of the bathroom with a small box. He then pulled a large, roughly cylindrical bag out from under the bed and started going through it. He nodded in approval before placing the box inside the bag and hefting it onto his shoulder. “Well, I’m all ready to go! Never unpacked, so it’s all still in here!”
I wagged my tail as I strode over to my shoulder pack. I easily slung it onto my back and faced my companions. “We can drop Sharnet off with the officers and then walk to the station.” I pulled out my pad and opened the train schedule. As I ducked out of the room. “Our train doesn’t depart for a bit, so we should have time for the trip.”
I looked back to see Jacob slip his other arm into a second sling and pull the bag so it balanced completely against his back. “Sounds like a plan,” he grunted at his first step. “Let’s get moving!”
Closing the door one last time, we headed back to the elevator for our final trip back down. “Tarlim?” Sharnet brushed her tail against my leg to get my attention. “You really have done so much for me. I just want you to know, when we next meet, I hope to have done something for you.”
I flicked my tail in appreciation at those words. Before we split for good, I decided that I should send her off with a proper goodbye hug. I knelt down and pulled her close as we entered the elevator. She purred in my arms. Even if we never met again, I would never regret this time we three spent together.
“Wait a minute!” Jacob broke the moment as the doors closed, “did you say we’re walkin’!?

2023.03.25 12:51 roliasmot1 Rumble glitch on Pixel phone 6?

Open Rumble App. All I see is rumble with logo and magnifying glass at top, and the "house, lightning, red circle, tv, circle with letter" at the very bottom. It shows nothing in the middle, and if I want to look up something I subscribe to, I have to manually search for it via clicking magnifying glass.
When I touch the tv icon, it says I'm following 22, but when I touch that, a notice appears that says I have not followed anyone yet...? I had to clear cash and everything to get it back.
I suppose I'm just putting this bug report out for everyone, though I welcome feedback and thoughts on this matter.
I love the ambition of what Rumble is doing, and I hope to see many more features come about in the near future.

2023.03.25 12:51 toohiptoskip Immigration help! Lied to CBP agents and denied entry

The back story is, I live in a border town and with that meant that often dating apps would match with Americans. When I was in my early 20’s I ended up in a 2 year relationship with an American and went back and forth into Canada and the US without problems. We break up and I didn’t take it very well I quit my job, mental health wasn’t good. I had a friend in the US who ended up developing into something more. 3 months of visiting back and forth into the US once again no problems.
Then one day I go to visit the officer says that I seem to be visiting a lot, I was honest and say I’ve been in a relationship with two different Americans and I’m visiting. Cue being asked a bunch of questions, school schedule, lease (lived at home still), ties to the country and lastly my work status, I had been bouncing between jobs and had recently just quit one and I panicked and lied and gave the name of the employer that I recently quit. They issue me a temporary visa for 5 days and allow my entry. This partner and I break up on this trip. I return to Canada and don’t think anything of it.
I don’t attempt to return for 6 months or so and when I do is when everything goes wrong. Normal crossing and end up being asked to go inside for a secondary search. The officer says that I have been illegally in the US for 6 months, that my visa was never processed as returned to Canada. I had been living in Canada the whole time.
The other thing is they followed up with my “employer” given on the previous trip who was honest in the fact that I don’t work there.
Finger prints and denied entry but not banned from entering. Between border closures and just being too afraid to I haven’t attempted to cross since. I was 21 and made a dumb decision I can admit that.
The first incident would have been 5 years ago the second coming up on 4 years. I am in a much different place now, job, lease, mentally stable, etc.
I guess the question is do I just show up at the border with my job letter, lease, etc and hope that it’s enough?
Is there a system that I can go through on the back end to avoid potentially being turned away at the border?
Is it best to hire a lawyer to help navigate or just trial and error?

2023.03.25 12:51 junglejims4322 The series is great, writing is subpar

Absolutely the concept/story but Netflix is really messing it up for me with the writing and sometimes acting. Seems like a bunch of fiverr artists (nothing wrong with them) but you’d expect a big Netflix show to invest a bit more in that realm. Am I the only one who has this experience?

2023.03.25 12:51 AltruisticBoot4127 Namjoon is a great example of how idols should learn from their mistakes.

Ever since Namjoon was called out for misogynistic lyrics he has changed a lot. He reads feminist books to learn, went to a female professor to go over what was wrong with his lyrics and did multiple things to learn and change. Since then he hasn’t continued any behavior he was called out for.
I think if more idols showed that they were educating themselves and changing more fans would accept their apologies. The trend of rushed and robotic apologies is making fans not able to tolerate these idol’s actions anymore. To grow and learn after a mistake is essential. Usually idols will release an apology then a month later make the same mistake.
