I put in my two week notice last week because GEICO is a hellscape. Over this week period, I've called my manager out on some pretty significant bullshit. That wasn't appreciated. I was removed from my position as an ICS Coach. They told my team that I resigned. So, more half truths. Honestly... I had a good run at GEICO for awhile, but they have gone so far in the wrong direction that this is actually the best day of my life.

2023.03.30 20:08 TheGhostofTamler Authoritarian (non-democratic) regimes and how to interpret signaling visavi election results
I'm curious about the phenomenon of authoritarian regimes that hold (fake) national elections wherein the result is something ridiculous. In the case where its over a 100% I assume the reason is at least in part institutional failure (at the local level?), but what about if we compare those where results are within "normal ranges" (51-65%) and those where the results are more in the territory of 80-98%
What I'm really asking about is the function, or the signaling, of using different election results for authoritarian (ie non-democratic) states. With more plausible results I reckon the goal is at least in part to maintain a veneer of legitimacy. But what is the goal with over the top implausible results?
Is it mainly a signal to the opposition broadly interpreted? Ie not just political actors but also potential such actors. That there's no hope. The emperor is naked, but any truth telling boy will be tortured to death. And you all know it.
Any literature on this? What kind of totalitarian regimes are more likely to utilize implausible (but not literally impossible >100%) results?

2023.03.30 20:08 DamCam2020 (long) Went looking for my baby pictures
on your old Facebook page, but got caught up rereading some of your last posts. About 7 months before you passed, you made a post asking your loved ones for guidance in an extremely trying and vulnerable time. I’m pretty sure you mentioned me as well in the post, talking about how the way I looked at you had changed drastically. What really activated the tears, though, was how of the 35+ comments, the majority of them all began with “I don’t have guidance, but…..”
That really got me thinking. Because one of the reasons you flew from this mortal plane was that you didn’t believe you needed help, and/or didn’t want to face the demons if you did get help. Like me, you probably assumed it would destroy you further and ran for the hills (read: booze, opioids, adultery, abusive externalization). You spent my entire childhood and adolescence showing me how to kill yourself just to stay alive.
But there are quite a few critical differences between us, regardless of how much DNA we share. Looking at those FB comments made me wonder about the quality of your friends; did you ever actually have anyone who WAS wise? A true confidant who wouldn’t enable, who would be honest, who could’ve helped ground you? Maybe they loved you, as much as they were capable of, but I think you surrounded yourself with people who weren’t grown enough to see YOU clearly, either. However, I know how easy it can be to fool people into thinking you don’t struggle with addiction. Nobody knew how bad it was for me until I was honest. But at least I have safe people to be honest with.
Did you have that, or did you drive anyone away who actually was? Did you pursue, or avoid? Recovery and accountability require massive social support, and based upon how deep in the trenches you were, it really would’ve taken the whole village. You were the 44-year-old child who never grew up, was too afraid to heal, and made it everyone’s problem. For the rest of our lives.
I look at everything you didn’t have and didn’t do, as a guideline for ways to help myself get better. I’ve had to compare my successes to your lack thereof just to stop hating myself for where I came from. I hate saying that we’re all better off without you, but you can’t save everyone, and that’s just the gospel truth. You taught me that by molding my savior complex and then fucking right off out of existence. You were the first and eternal heartbreak, but my god despite how your projections dirtied my self-image, there were still plenty of good people who saw the spark in me, the heart in me, the desire to just get a little love and positive attention. I got very, very lucky to have met such compassionate and empathetic people. I’m saddened to think that you either never had the same, or ruined it on your own. I hate that a dead woman can still make cry.
I know you’d be proud of me. If you were still around, maybe we could’ve quit drinking together. Maybe we could’ve been the family I deserved. By the way, people out here call me by the nickname you always hated. This is the life I built without you. I won’t recognize you in the next life, for you will be but a praying mantis and I will be a baby again, but I will say hello to every green buggie I see just so you feel a little less alone.

2023.03.30 20:06 No-Conversation- My wife is requesting an open relationship after 5 years and we have two young boys
I have no great outlets for help, and I've been swirling around with emotions the last four days after my wife asked if we could have a general open relationship. She was asking if we could date other people while keeping each other as the Primary family/relationship. My wife is 27 and I'm 32 years old. We have two boys 3 and 1 that we love with all our hearts. We have always loved being around each other and we fun every chance we get. We seldom get to go out on dates without the kids (Once every 3 months). I spend a lot of time at work during the week and she's in nursing school. We have about 3-4 hours during the week together with the kids and the weekends. We live in Florida with no other family in the state and we rely heavily on each other to make sure we and the kids have everything we need.
Day 1, 3/28/23 My wife would have liked a better setting to present this information, but I pushed her to tell me what was on her mind. I could tell she needed to share something with me. I had no clue what she was about to say. She let me know that for two years she has been desiring to have the feeling of going on a first date and having a new emotional connection with someone new (New butterfly feeling when you first date someone). Something I cannot provide her. She has battled with this for a while and prayed for the feeling to leave her. The day before she told me our very close friend (For clarity he is gay, and we are all close friends since before my wife and I met. He introduced us) was in town and she shared with him her feels. He's very emotionally entuned with himself and his feels and was concerned why she didn't feel safe sharing this information with me first. Later she told me that she didn't what kind of affect this would cause our relationship. She loves her life but is also young and desires the feeling of a new emotional connection and that excitement. She has stated that she's 100% in love with me and doesn't want to lose what we have. (It's hard to explain to most but my wife and I have had several moments in our lives where we should have died but God has saved us) We fully trust one another and when she tells me she wants to keep the life we have but add in another layer of short term excitement. I must trust that is what she's asking for. We've never needed to lie, and I can tell she is being honest (It's still unclear the extent of excitement she's needing, and I feel that can be a slippery slope from dating to sex). She's informed me this is something she wants to experience while she is still young and very desirable. We get pregnant quickly and she was only 23, and now she wants to have that fresh feeling of dating (That's my understanding).
Initially, I took several breaths to fully understand what I was hearing my head started to pound as my blood pressure increase. I looked at the women that I married, the love of my life, mother of my beautiful boys, and the person I trusted above all others. I deeply felt the pain in my bones. What had I done to trigger this request. Was I inadequate to meet my wife's desire, what did I do to cause my wife to need someone else in her life. - The emotions alone could fill the pages. Primarily it was a feeling of sadness that I was not the man my wife thought I would be and that I could never be what she needed to be filled all the way up with happiness/desire.
After taking some time and learning more about what she was asking it was time for bed.
Day 2 - I didn't sleep well and woke up using all my might to get the boys ready for school and to head to work at 6:20AM. I felt as though I was an empty shell of a man walking around work. I spend the next three hours reading articles on understanding open/poly relationships to help me better understand how we could compromise and what I could do to save my marriage. I was having troubling finding if this was something I could allow myself to handle. I was imagining my wife out on a date with someone else while I was at home with the kids. We rarely get to spend time together without the kids and now some lucky man is out with my wife hearing her beautiful laugh and seeing her smile. Taking in the beauty she shares. I ended up leaving work early sick to my stomach and having trouble functioning. I went straight to the gym to help combating the heavy weight of anxiety for the future and depression tempting my memories of our relationships. The gym helped but I found myself spending time looking at perfect pictures of our family and the doom that was to come in the next few weeks or months.
That night we talked about ground rules and specifically what she was looking for. One major obstacle was that she thought she could get what she needs without having sex with someone else. This gave me immediate relief and made me feel better about my insecurities and fears. She told me maybe two dates ever six months would satisfy what she was needing. This would be equal to the number of dates we get to have with one another.
Day 3, 3/29/23- Another night with little sleep, but after a few hours I was down after taking some helpful sleeping medication to aid my racing thoughts. Again, waking up thinking I was in someone's life and this couldn't be happening to me and my family. I went to work and spilled the beans to the only person I could trust at work. A highly educated 30-year-old male that has a mother and sister doctors OBGYN and physiatrist. I couldn't hold in the pain any longer and had to talk. He looked me strait in the face and said, "I'm so sorry man". He knew for most people wife asking for an open relationship that the end was right around the corner. I took his statements in stride he didn't know what my wife and I had been through. We'd both lived lives that were filled with risks and near death experiences. We were previous IV drug users and should have died many times before (Many of our friend had). Our cornerstone of 5+ years in recovery was honest. We knew without that we were surely not going to stay sober. He later came back into my office mentioning he spoke with his mother and sister and let me know in most cases like these the partner has already cheated. This challenged all the work I put into understanding my wife request the last two days. This was a minor setback and I let him know right away I 100% trust my wife and when she told me she has not acted on the urges it's the truth no further explanation was needed. I did greatly appreciate him checking in on my and letting me know several people were praying for us. (I do not recommend talking with strangers this early. It clouded my thinking and understanding of my wife's communication. It also added doubt into the mix that did not need to be there)
I got ahold of our mutual friend who my wife originally opened up to. He was very understanding in my feeling and let me know the shock will wear off and to give myself time to process these emotions (He too told us he was in a working poly relationship and he would try to keep his insight as unbiased as possible). I let him know by trying to set up parameters/ground rules and making this possible was severally impacting my soul. I believe now this was a little catastrophizing of a statement as I'm working towards finding a way to keep our family together. God sent me two much needed signs this day.
The first one a gentleman who had been terminated from work this day was walking by saying farewell he didn't mention to me at that time it was his last day but he looked at me and asked what was wrong. Apparently, I was noticeably hurting. I didn't tell him the specifics but that I was having trouble at home. "He said trust in God always." That had a lot of meaning for me. It helped me to keep pushing on and to trust in God always.
The second sigh when I went to get my medication the pharmacist provided me a Narcan inhaler. This of course helps bring you back once you're overdosing from opiates. I have recently had a shoulder surgery and knew the most peaceful way to go would be to overdose. This was only a fleeting thought among millions I was wrestling with over the last three days, but it was a profound sign for me to keep fighting. Believe me I have so much to live for. This was just a short-lived fleeting thought but God still extinguished it right away. "Trust in God always."
My wife and I didn't have much time to talk today her father was in town and I wanted to mix things up. We got the small mini pool and slide out for the kids and set it up in the back yard spraying water on the kids and watching them play. It was fun and my wife and I made fajitas. Later that night just before bed I had a few questions I wanted to ask her and I let me emotions and fear get the best of me. I let her know that in this moment If she feels as though she should be dating someone else then she should, but that we will no longer be in a relationship. I shouldn't be so direct in a situation that's extremely volatile. My wife is wanting to communicate with me and assured me we have nothing we need to do right now and multiple times now she's mentioned "everything will be okay. We will be okay." I felt bad for telling her this, but it was how I truly felt in that moment.
That night I felt like I had done something wrong by telling my wife how I felt. I don't know how to navigate these emotions nor do I have experience with taking through delicate situations like this. This is the first big ticket item my wife and I have not been able to tackle together in a day or two.
Day 4, 3/30/23 - I'm looking for advice to help me understand the benefits of poly and how I can train myself to accept my wife's request and to find happiness in her happiness with someone else. I feel as though neither of us have the best delivery on information and I don't want to make her feel bad for coming out and sharing with me.
I know for myself I will have trouble dating other people. I get all I need from my wife. I do have fantasies about others, but I could never actually see myself doing anything sexually. Emotionally I would not be interested in an emotional connection I do not long for those feeling.
Thank you for reading I want the best for my family we truly love one another.
This is the first time I've shared online, and I think there is therapy in writing down my feeling and concerns. I hope this helps other to see that they're not alone and these things happen. I will fight for my wife and our children and do my best to find a way to make it work. If it doesn't work out, I will do my best to copartner with my wife and take care of our little ones. Life is short and my wife deserves to have the things she desires as do I.

2023.03.30 20:03 NanoZara To Mom (t May 2022)
My mom passed away last year in May, very unexpectedly. I was 17. She was literally an angel in human form and the most important person in my life.
I just had a good cry while I tried writing down some of my thoughts and feelings. I kind of need to share it somewhere, but I don't want people I know to think I'm fishing for attention. So yeah here it is.
Hey Mom. I miss you.
I don't really know where to start this. I'm moving through life as if there never was any resistance. As if everything was just in the exact right place. Nothing to ever worry about, no thought about things going wrong or not working out like I want them to.
Yet sometimes, I still feel so lost and alone. As if this sense of gliding through life was just me losing my grip of everything. As if nothing really had a meaning anymore, because the only person I'd really want to share this with isn't here to hear it anymore.
Whenever something went really well in life, when I did really well, the only person I wanted to share it with was you. Not because I felt like I had to validate myself to you. But because I knew that your pride in me was the strongest feeling of love I could ever get. Knowing that you were proud of me was what lifted me up and made me keep going all these years. And now that you are gone, I don't know what is going to keep me afloat when I'm giving up on myself.
You were my biggest believer and my most loyal supporter. You made sure the road was clear for me to head towards my goals. And to be honest, being your own cheerleader gets kind of tough sometimes.
Sometimes, I feel like the world is just ruling in my favor all the time, even if I can't see it at first. That things just magically fall into place, as if there was someone guiding me in the right direction, placing and removing obstacles so I'd find my way. Yet, I'm not sure if all of that is worth having lost you. If I'd not rather live a different, less exciting life, but have you by my side as I live it. Because the truth is, no matter how well it is going, I still feel like I am losing my grip every once in a while. Like I don't even know what I am doing this for. Sometimes, I just sit on my bed and wish that I could rest my head on your shoulder, that I could listen to your heartbeat and know that I'll be okay. That you would hold me and tell me that it is going to be alright, like you did all those times when I felt like I couldn't push through or that I was losing myself under the pressure of outside expectation.
I really do not like having to fight for myself. And I don't like knowing that I can't stop the hurting from getting a hold of me all over again. Losing people never stops. And I am not sure if I can handle losing the most important people in my life again.
Why can't you just be here, right by my side? Why can't I call you and tell you about all the amazing things I did and experienced? Why can't I be good enough for you? Why was I not good enough when you needed me the most? Why didn't I understand that you were hurting? I feel like it was my responsibility to know. My responsibility to stop all of this. To prevent it from happening. To make sure you'd see your children succeed and reach their life goals. To make sure you could hold and watch and nurture your grandchildren. That I could buy that stupid house at the beach with some garden space for a donkey.
Whenever I see a donkey here in Malawi, I think about how badly I'd want to sent you a picture of it. Because it would make you so happy to see it. And maybe you would've visited me here in Malawi. Maybe you would've been the person I ran towards at the airport. I would've hugged you and not let you go for so long, because damn, I would've missed having you up in my arms for so long.
I regret that I spent so little quality time with you in the last years. That I had the desire to be free and fly into this new big world without you. I never realized you were the one enabling me to spread my wings. When you left, I felt like I couldn't fly at all. As if I were jumping off a cliff, falling, but my wings wouldn't open or be able to carry me. Now, it feels like I'm managing to handle things on my own. But this management doesn't feel like flying anymore. It feels like I'm walking up a hill, with a heavy bag on my shoulders. Always seeing a goal, and being somewhat free. But the ease of floating, gliding in security and safety, that is gone. I'm still dictating my own path through life. That is freedom. But it feels a lot heavier since you're not here anymore to guide me.
I hope that you see me being here and doing my best. And I hope that deep down, you're still proud of me. Because with everything that I'm doing, I'm trying my best. My best to be good. And my best to honor what you taught me about life. I want to live my life in a way you would've been proud of. A life where I can chase my dreams, fight for the better, for equity, for others, and for myself. I need to know that you're still here to give me that strength. Because without you, I don't know if I can pull through it. I promise, I will do the best that I can to be worthy.
Please, don't leave me alone. I can't be alone. I miss you. Stay with me, please.
I love you, Mom.

2023.03.30 20:01 -343-Guilty-Spark- Community Update: Educational Echoes
https://www.halowaypoint.com/news/educational-echoes Header Image [Imgur]
Welcome back to another instalment of the Halo Community Update!
It’s been a busy ol’ time over the last month with the highly anticipated release of Season 3: Echoes Within in Halo Infinite, a new Halo Gear Rewards program, new lore, a MEGA Halo fan vote, and more—so let’s get you a full and proper debrief on all the latest goings-on.
HALO INFINITE Season 3 of Halo Infinite launched just a few weeks ago, bringing with it an all-new 100-tier Battle Pass, three new maps, the M392 Bandit and Shroud Screen, MIRAGE IIC and CHIMERA armor customization, a new Fracture event, and new cinematics and narrative-focused events that pick up where Season 2: Lone Wolves left off.
Need a catch-up on what’s happened in Season 1 and 2? Be sure to check out our “previously on” cinematic, which you’ll also see in-game.
You can also check out the stunning new cinematic which kicks off Season 3’s story, in which the Banished AI Iratus searches through Spartan Dinh’s mind and forces him to relive traumatic memories of several missions-gone-wrong.
Season 3’s concluding story event, Site Unseen, will commence on May 2—it won’t be long until we discover what lies beyond the mysterious door...
The first week of the new Fracture: FIREWALL event concluded earlier this week, but it will return three more times over the course of the next couple of months.
FIREWALL features a free 20-tier Event Pass for all players that contains themed, limited-time customization rewards for the CHIMERA Armor Core that you can earn by completing (playlist-agnostic) Event Challenges.
FIREWALL event weeks are scheduled for the following dates:
This Fracture is rooted in canonical elements of the Halo universe, giving us a look at the fallout plan devised by High Auxiliary Sloan—the former governor of Meridian who you met in Halo 5. As one of Cortana’s most loyal lieutenants, Sloan devised the FIREWALL agendum to ensure the long-term future of the Created, the fledgling empire having fractured in the wake of Cortana’s sacrifice on Zeta Halo.
Week 1: March 21-28
- Week 2: April 11-18
- Week 3: May 23-30
- Week 4: June 13-20
Sloan’s answer to these changes in circumstances is the Executor, who is subjected to a living simulation of the future where man and machine exist as one.
You can delve deeper into the narrative of Fracture: FIREWALL in the event’s Story Shard: Precipice.

A new season means new Intel!
For those who have just arrived or are rejoining us after a little while, Intel is an additional narrative element that delves into some of the peripheral lore of the season. It is released both in-game (in Halo Infinite's message of the day carousel) and hosted here on Halo Waypoint.
With Season 3, we have a new Intel blog that will be updated over the course of the coming weeks and months, detailing aspects of Season 3's story. As of this week, you can check out the first two of six total entries.

2023.03.30 20:01 Yee013 SCP-2406, "The Colossus" discussion and reflection.
Article of Question: https://scp-wiki.wikidot.com/scp-2406
So, I've been thinking an amount about 2406, what the background was, what the elements in play were (however nuanced they may be), and basically what enemy they were facing.
Now, I've been doing some google searches, getting a feel about 2406's world, and so, I've been wondering,
What exactly were the Colossus's fighting? Like, yes, we get a general idea of the meat behind the flesh, but were they just Sarkite Constructs of blood and muscle, or was it also encompassing various anomalous reanimated organisms, the like such as 610..
..And what is the world like? Did the civilizations of that world (the Hittites, Egyptians, Cretans, Aegeans
) employ measures such as the medium of 2406, or did they play a part in its construction and the construction of its siblings? In Scroll II, it does make it seem that certain civilizations were part of the offence against the threat, but..
Egypt retreats from [the world/us/contact with us].
The Hittites have fallen into [chaos/strife].
The Conspirators of [Crete] have sacrificed their own.
The Aegean has fallen into barbarism.
[The city of a thousand pillars] is forever lost. Has always been lost.
Even the Daeva grow desperate with the enemy at their border.
The center collapses - kingdoms crumble. The damage is done.
The light of reason [flickers/wanes].
..Were never able to stand against such a threat for so long. The Egyptians
seem to have abandoned the offence entirely, the Hittites
are self-explanatory, the Cretans
have either betrayed, have been betrayed, or willingly surrendered into the hands of the enemy, and I have no idea what the Daeva
are but they seem to be in the brink of being conquered/surrounded. We know that 2406's civilizations are FAR more accomplished than our own Bronze Age civilizations, but do those accomplishments only extend to the Mediterranean Area, or to other continents as well? If news of a Flesh Monster are to be heard, and news of Colossi
fighting them, what are the other civilizations doing? Do they not simply know? Are they preparing for the worst till the time comes? Or are they dismissing the truth as lies? There is so much world-building potential here it's melting my mind 😳
Also, I seem to have mapped out what this passage says..
But the siege at Gyaros was won. We must strike while the metal is hot.
And thus, we march for Kythera - at the end of all things.
We have crossed the wine-dark sea.
..Gyaros is a little island off the coast of Greece to the East, much nearer to the coast of Athens.
A few miles Southwest, and we come across to Kythera. An island near the coast of the iconic "bear claw" on the tip of the first finger from the right.
The "wine-dark sea" is (generally) the Aegean. Homer (Simpson) generally tells so.
The story of what the Scroll II tell makes me think that Colossi
were on their way towards Kythera (obvious enough). They have crossed the wine-dark sea, and what they will do at Kythera will be a significant step in their offensive. We know that our Colossi
were part of that offensive, if not, then it wouldn't be in possession of Scroll II.
Since we only have two Scrolls to work on, I would wager that following their advance onto Kythera, they would've encountered some opposition. Leading to 2406's demise, and the following 5 remaining Scrolls to be tales of the crew and their final moments (if they haven't been deciphered yet).
I will end off here, with a quote from the records.
We are cancelling the Sarkic Dawn.
Please take into consideration that I'm but a newb in the ever-expanding knowledge of the Foundation and its Entries, and I might as well be on the very tippy-tip of the iceburg.
Hope you enjoyed reading my rant.

2023.03.30 20:01 RedlyMaiden My issues with some parts of activism and community
Disclaimer: I'm not saying that activism isn't working. I'm just putting in evidence the fallacies of trans activism.
What trans activists fail to comprehend is that logic is more important than just doing what's written in a planned precise agenda (such as promoting the transgender umbrella with crossdressers and GNC people). Activism should focus on real trans issues and realistic expectations. As you notice, all the activists promote the same things, without a different idea - all same ideas. There is not a different kind of activism, it's all the same.
Sure, we need a direction to guide the minorities and some kind of order to not generate chaos. But this doesn't mean you need to put things people may disagree with as absolute truths, such as the transgender umbrella which includes cis people as well. Activism should spread the truth about a situation and give the right inputs, give a stable, static identity to the minorities.
If there is need of updating the activism purposes to include other kind of trans people such as non-binary people, this is pretty good. But, to an extent. I'm of the idea that if you do that, you need to make a distinction between trans people and xenogender users, for example - or just don't include them as trans. Let's take the ICD as an example. People are celebrating the "depathologization" of trans - however, the diagnosis keeps telling that you need to show marked signs of incongruence to a certain range. If you don't show any, you aren't trans.
Anyways, we need to stop making some confused cis people using bigender term or genderfluid. I saw so many people saying they are bigender or genderfluid only because they change gendered dresses everyday. We don't have to gatekeep if not needed but, these same people often go and send death threats, insults if you disagree with their views.
There are so many mental illness / disorders fakers but why not saying there are trans fakers? Is it that hard to admit it? Sure they aren't so many irl, but can we just assume this in case it happens? Also well I don't think being trans is a disorder but gender dysphoria is, but why attacking people who think it is a disorder? They'll say that cis people will think that we are mentally ill, which is not the case. Gender dysphoria is a mental disorder, since it debilitates you most of times and it stops you from having a normal life. What others think is not the truth anyways, it's their problem if they have a stigma about "mental disorder" word, not ours.
I don't identify as truscum, but I can understand some fallacies of trans community, definitely. I also see how some trans people complain about trans vents in trans spaces and that they want more positive spaces. You are in a trans space, what do you expect? You can also close Internet or go in another positive space if you want to. I understand their concerns but, these people most of times have no space where to vent about their trans life, so you are trying to prevent them to not vent at all, which makes your mental health go down.
P.S: I don't think you need to suffer to be trans neither to transition, but to at least show some signs of incongruity.
Last thing: only because trans activists have more media power, doesn't mean they are right and that we are wrong.

2023.03.30 19:58 I_B_Board Read this before loving me.
If you're going to love me, know that it's not hard. I won't make you fight for my love, I will embrace you with complete openness; you will reside in my heart like the home you've craved.
I will nurture you when you feel lovesick. I will be the friend you cry to, lean on, and always run to.
I won't make you uncomfortable unless it's time to stand in your truth; my discomfort will only come in the form of helping your growth.
I won't deceive you. I won't try to change you. I will always support you.
If you're going to love me, know that it may not always be easy. I am an intense lover, sometimes I may suffocate you.
I'm an overthinker, extra TLC is recommended.
I'm an empath, my emotions get the best of me; and get the worst of you, if you' re not ready to embrace them.
I don't think that makes me hard to love. I think it just means I was meant to be experienced differently.
I think it means those who find me in this world were either meant to bring me love or bring themselves the experience they were missing within; both are a treasure.
So love me at your own will, but be prepared to learn, In the end, what the true meaning of love is.

2023.03.30 19:56 ThrowRAwhatdoidohelp How do I (M20) show interest in a slightly older coworker (F24) without being weird?
I (M20) have been waiting tables on the side for almost a year now and have been spending time at work with a coworker (F24) whenever our shifts overlapped. It is a fairly large venue, meaning that there are times where the whole day can be spent just goofing around while making preparations for future events, without even having a customer in the building. I get so happy and excited anytime her name is on the check-in list, because getting to talk to her, turns even the longest shifts into great days. I feel like I've developed quite a crush, but I'm not sure how to approach her without risking the working relationship, especially because I suspect that she's a little uncomfortable with the age-gap. A couple of days ago she asked me how old I was at the end of our shift and then said something along the lines of "omg, so I've been talking to a kid this whole time" after I told her. I'm not entirely sure wether she was just teasing or if there was any truth to the implication. In general, I've been quite unsure on if she's been flirting with me, or if that's just the way she is.
I want to make it obvious that I like her without cornering her, but instead putting her in control of the situation, I'm just unsure on how to do it.
There has been an inside joke about both of us stealing the same flavour of a product that the venue sells, independently of each other, so I thought that maybe I could get her a pack of that but from a different brand so that it's obvious that I got it specifically for her and not just from the nearest shelf. I hope that something like that would "put the ball in her court", if she's even playing.
Do you think that would be a good idea or would you consider it odd? What would you do if someone gave you a gift like that? Should I even pursue this, or just let it go and be happy to have a great coworker who makes my days bearable?
Maybe I should add that I have no dating experience whatsoever, while she seems quite dominant and outgoing.
Any ideas/suggestions would be appreciated :)
TLDR: I have a crush on a slightly older co-worker who might be weirded out by the age-gap, and would like to show that to her without risking any conflict or causing the working relationship to crumble. I've considered getting her a gift based on an inside joke. Ideas/insights?
PS: English isn't my native language, sorry etc etc

Old version: https://www.reddit.com/ffxiv/comments/ikdjr7/a_list_wlinks_of_every_song_in_final_fantasy_xiv/
Whew, it's been a good while since I last updated this! Includes the latter additions to Shadowbringers (primarily Eden and Bozja) as well as everything in Endwalker so far up until 6.35. A few previously missed tracks were also added!
Naturally, there are no holds barred on this list and spoilers aplenty! Anything bold
is newly added since my last list.
I'm very aware a lot of the links for music used in the past are very much dead now, so I'll be going over everything as soon as I've a bit of time and replacing as much as I can.
If there's anything missing or any mistakes, let me know!

2023.03.30 19:52 Rauffenburg Critical Review of THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE (Jose J. Ventilacion, 2021)
2023.03.30 19:50 Neat_Hawk_9166 Watch 'Jesus Revolution' (Free) Online Streaming At Home
In a surprising turn of events, Kelsey Grammer‘s new Christian drama film, Jesus Revolution, has surpassed expectations after over-performing at the box office during its debut weekend.
The movie, which brought in $15.5 million in its three-day domestic debut (more than double what was projected), follows Chuck Smith (Grammer), a pastor from Southern California, as he works alongside a hippie to evangelize his friends.
So where can you stream Jesus Revolution? Will it be on Netflix? What about HBO Max? Here’s everything we know about the movie:
When Is Jesus Revolution's Release Date?
Jesus Revolution debuts exclusively in movie theaters on February 24. It's a fitting bit of counter-programming if the R-rated Jesus Revolution movie is not necessarily your speed.
Where To Watch Jesus Revolution:
As of now, the only way to watch Jesus Revolution is to head out to a movie theater. You can find a local showing on Fandango.
Watch Now: Jesus Revolution (2023) Online Free
Otherwise, you’ll just have to wait for it to become available to rent or purchase on digital platforms like Amazon, Vudu, YouTube or Apple.
Is Jesus Revolution Available to Stream?
It is not yet known when or where Jesus Revolution will be available to stream. However, the movie's production and distribution companies (Lionsgate and Kingdom Story Company) lead us to speculate that when the movie becomes available to stream, it will likely be hosted on a couple of different platforms depending on your country. Last year, Lionsgate signed streaming deals with both The Roku Channel and Peacock, that'll allow the streaming services to host their films.
In the United States, Starz is available with any Hulu plan starting at $7.99 per month. In the United Kingdom, Amazon Prime customers can purchase LIONSGATE+ alongside any plan starting at £5.99 per month.
When Will Jesus Revolution Be On Streaming?
While a digital release date for Jesus Revolution has not yet been announced, we can make an educated guess based on a previously released Lionsgate movie.
Plane, which premiered on Jan. 13, came to digital platforms on Feb. 3 — about three weeks after it was released in theaters. If Jesus Revolution follows the same trajectory, we could be watching it from the comfort of our living rooms by late March.
Will Jesus Revolution Be On HBO Max?
No, Jesus Revolution will not be on HBO Max since it’s not a Warner Bros. movie. While the company used to release its films in theaters and on the streamer on the same day, they now allow a 45-day window between the theatrical release and the streaming release.
Will Jesus Revolution Be On Netflix?
While Jesus Revolution could potentially come to Netflix in the future, there are no current plans for it to join the streaming giant after its theatrical run. In the meantime, you’ll just have to head out to a movie theater or wait for it to become available on digital.
Is Jesus Revolution Available On Hulu?
Viewers are saying that they want to view the new true story movie Jesus Revolution on Hulu. Unfortunately, this is not possible since Hulu currently does not offer any of the free episodes of this series streaming at this time. It will be exclusive to the MTV channel, which you get by subscribing to cable or satellite TV services. You will not be able to watch it on Hulu or any other free streaming service.
Is Jesus Revolution on Amazon Prime?
Even though ‘Jesus Revolution’ is not for streaming on Amazon Prime Video, you can still make the most of your subscription by tuning into similar spiritual films on the streaming giant. We recommend you watch ‘The Girl Who Believes in Miracles‘ and ‘God’s Not Dead.’
Where to Watch Jesus Revolution Online?
‘Jesus Revolution’ has been released exclusively in theaters, which means that you don’t have the option to watch the drama movie online, be it by streaming or purchasing. Thus, to get an immersive viewing experience, you can check show timings and book tickets on the movie’s official website and Fandango.
Jesus Revolution cast
The biggest name attached to Jesus Revolution is Kelsey Grammer, who is set to play the role of Pastor Chuck Smith. Grammer is of course best known for playing Fraiser Crane in both the Cheers and Fraiser TV shows, the latter of which is getting a reboot on Paramount Plus. More recently, he's been seen in Dr. Death, Moneyplane and he continues to voice Sideshow Bob on The Simpsons.
The movie also features Jonathan Rumie as Lonnie Frisbee. Rumie has experience in faith-based titles, playing Jesus in the TV series The Chosen. Playing Greg Laurie in the movie, meanwhile, is Joel Courtney, who is best known for his role in the Netflix rom-com franchise The Kissing Booth.
Also starring in the movie are Kimberly Williams-Paisley (Dog Gone), Anna Grace Barlow (The Big Leap), Nicholas Cirillo (Outer Banks), DeVon Franklin (Canal Street) and more.
What is Jesus Revolution About?
Set in the 1970s, the narrative follows a young Greg Laurie, who arrives in Southern California with many other youngsters determined to redefine truth. There, they meet with a Hippie Street Preacher named Lonnie Frisbee and Pastor Chuck Smith, who welcome the sea of young people inside the latter’s church, resulting in a spiritual awakening that changes the course of Christianity in America forever. If you wish to learn more about this extraordinary true story, you must watch the film yourself; here are all the ways
