2023.06.06 05:35 mrj1600 Citi Bank dodges CFPB, what to do next?

Hello all,
I'm trying to decide how hard to pursue this and I'm hoping for somewhat of a reality check.
The brief summary is, I have been building credit since I opened my first card when I was 15. I have 20 years of credit with a total of 60 accounts ever opened, 35 active, and not a single missed payment until this debacle. I went from a credit score of 820 down to 750.
I have a Home Depot credit card serviced by Citi Bank. I've had the card since 2016 and I've had autopay on it since day 1. I hardly use it however. Last year my wife put a $15 charge on it in a pinch (she forgot her wallet and apparently you can look up the card in the store with no ID and a convincing story...). The autopay didn't draft and I received no notifications whatsoever of the balance or missed payments. 3 months later I saw the missed payment on my quarterly credit report check. I called up Citi, the rep refunded the late fee and I paid in full. When I asked about the autopay they said it was a system glitch due to an upgrade and a lot of customers had the same problem. The rep said they'd submit a request to have the report to the credit bureaus reversed.
About a month went by and I received a letter in the mail followed by an email that the report is accurate and they're not doing anything about it. that's right, don't notify me that you're about to screw up my credit but by all means over communicate that you're not going to fix it.
I called two more times, got the same story from two more reps, and sent a follow up letter and all responses came back the same. "The report is accurate, no action will be taken"
So as a last ditch effort, I contacted the CFPB, who responded with the following and closed the case:
"Company responded there is an unauthorized third party"
I have no idea what this even means. The best I can gather is it's an extremely generic response that's hard to disprove, making it an effective way to dodge the CFPB.
I will take full responsibility for not checking a rarely used account more often, but the lack of notifications and acknowledgement of a system failure by three separate reps frustrates the hell out of me.
I understand 760 is still a decent score, but I'm irked by the feeling that a lot of this was out of my control.
Should I continue to try to argue this or let it go?

2023.06.06 05:33 galivet Is there some kind of algorithm at play generating one-time access codes that are easy to remember?

Whenever I get a multi-factor authentication one time code like from signing into my online bank account or whatever, the codes are always easy to remember, like 993793 or 246822 or 536 236... like they repeat numbers and/or use patterns that make that make them easy to remember, and it's every time I get a code. I've never gotten a code that seemed like truly random numbers. What's the deal with that?

2023.06.06 05:32 Winendinen69 Third loss in less than a year

Was referred to a MFM because doctor saw something in my ultrasound at 6w4d a week and a half ago that he wasn’t sure what it was, so he referred me to get it looked at.
They started the ultrasound and I just knew immediately. Looked like the embryo had stopped growing 2 days after my previous ultrasound.
Doctor also thinks she saw a potential uterine abnormality that I should get checked out (she saw two sacs, one with the yolk sac and the other with an embryo. So now she recommends I do all this imaging testing before trying again.
Going to opt for a D&C as I don’t know if I can handle the pill.
I don’t know why I got my hopes up with my numbers doubling every 35 hours, had different symptoms this time than with my BO.
Third loss in less than a year. I don’t know how much more I can take.

2023.06.06 05:32 keyford Whats up with "boxes"?

I was just watching the new Doug Polk vid and he mentioned someone going to their box at the casino and all the money was missing
If I understand this system correctly, these are like safety deposit boxes but people put cash in them rather than documents or other non fungable valuables like you would at a bank
Why does it work this way? I assume that to have one you have to have an account of some kind with the casino and pay a fee, why don't you just have a digital account with a number next to your name and when you want money the casino just withdraws it and gives it to you from the big pile?
Why does everyone have to have their own dedicated stack? Hell, don't people have accounts at casinos for big buyins like WSOP? Or the million dollar cash game?

2023.06.06 05:25 Chelstrawberrymuffin As a (trans) man i was much more adored by women than as a woman. it was like the same adoration men have for women except much more about deep emotion attraction and affection than something more shallow. this made me love being a man.

As a woman the main people who were interested or attracted to me were men, who i did not enjoy the attention of whatsoever. even if they didnt come across as creepy or shallow and came from a place of emotion and good intent, i still just didnt care if they liked me 1% because them liking me didnt activate any dopamin or reward points in my brain. i either felt neutral about it or bad/disgusted. men liking me has NEVER amounted up to the way i felt when women liked me as a man bc the way the two sexes showed interest in me was just very different and ill get into that a little bit. anyway, women also showed attraction to me as a woman, but it was much less intense and much more subtle like just a quick comment like "you're hot" or "would you ever date someone like me? (playfully)"

as a trans man, i just had a lot more women interested in me in a way that felt different. it was much more intense and direct and women appeared to be being DIRECT for once, blatantly stating thei desires and feelings. this was majorly on dating apps by the way. but id get a lot more physical compliments such as being handsome or beautiful, or the most handsome guy theyve seen, i have been called the nicest man theyve never met, sweetest man, most adorable or cute man, etc. i have had multiple women say they adore my voice and asking me to send them audio clips of it - even tho my male voice was/is extremtly annoying and nasally. i have had women be much more quick to want to commit to me. the time period in my life when i was dating the most was as a trans man. it was like, date after date. most women into me were bisexual women but i also had a good chunk of straight women who just declared theirself as being into femboys/soft guys/more feminine or gentle guys. i felt very very adored and for the first time in my life i felt sexy too. even though i wanna make it clear that i look much more attactive as a woman, because my features match a lot of what society says is attractive in a woman, mainly in the face. despite looking better as a woman than a man, it was only when i became a trans man that for the first time i ever, i felt sexy. i think it mainly had to do with the way women would dote on me online and give me so much (undeserved) praise and i basically felt like a sexy trans man god because of the way they were reacting to me. i just felt very attractive as a trans man, it felt good to be desired by peopple i wanted to desire me, and in the way i wanted to BE desired.

thats another thing. women or men liking me as a woman never feels/felt right because its always very feminine. and it was basically always based on me being feminine or looking feminine. but as a trans man i could video call a girl bare faced with fucking acne and the woman would call me a handsome cutie pie. if i did that as a woman.. yeah, i wouldnt have gotten that reaction. there were higher expectations on what to look and/or act like as a woman in order to match up to an ideal, i feel like. and also the feminine treatment that came along with someone perceiving me as a feminine being and treating me as such, and my worth as being a sexy person or not being reliant on how feminine i am... you can see why i didnt feel sexy as a woman. because it was so tied to how much of a "woman" i was. meanwhile as a trans man, i could be masculine, feminine, anything i wanted, and i still got all this praise. the women just liked me as a being, not because of a performance i was doing.

and also like i said earlier, i didnt get as much attention from women as a woman. if i did, it was super subtle and shy and didnt usually lead anywhere and it was mild. for some reason when i became a man, women seemed to take me more seriou and actually see me as a sexual partner and a sexual being. i feel like as a woman i got seen as like, a child, by women. i wasnt seen as a sexual partner, just like a cute thing to look at and call cute as a passing comment and then move on. but as a trans man women were actually wanting to f me and/or chat me up to see about possibly dating. it probablly doesnt help that as a woman i looked super young for my age, but still. as a trans man i felt very adored, almost idolized sometimes.

anyway the attention i get as a woman is mostly from men, and even though i suppose that i like bothe women and men, i guess, i still just.. dont enjoy the attention straight men give to me as a woman. i just dont. i dont know why, i just dont, and i never have. in fact, almost all my earliest childhood memories was of me running away from or avoiding boys who liked me, and me calling them gross and rejecting them. i just dont like attention from straight men romantically or sexually. but do i like attention from straight or bi women? yes. most specifically, i like it as a man. why? because of the reasons i just listed up there

i dont know exactly why women seemed to love me a lot more as a trans man. number one i was on a lot of lgbt dating platforms so that probably played a role. they probably were a fan of trans men as a whole. and secondly, maybe it had to do with being more interesting or enticing than a cis person? thirdly a lot of women seemed to like me for basically having the "emotional intlligence and/or socialization" of a woman, but looking male. but as a cis woman, i guess it is more boring and/or predictable and thats why i got less attention? i dont know. but i just know that all my most INTENSE dating experiences came from living as a trans man, not as a woman, even though the amount of people that desired me as a woman were higher as a whole. it sometimes makes it hard to not want to go back to that. being a trans man to experience that again. i really did soak and bathe in the praise. everytime i got called handsome, everytime i got called the cutest guy theyve ever seen, everytime id get complimented by these women, it really made me feel attractive in a way ive never felt before in my life, and thats easy to miss. i dont really feel attractive as a woman even tho i know i am. i can see in the mirror that i look okay. but i dont see sexy or attractive as a woman, and men's interest in me does not excite me, make me happy, or make me feel attractive. idk its jusst hard to explain.

basically to summarize, i only like romantic and sexual attention as a trans man, not as a woman. and no i dont have any sexual traumas or issues relating to gender. oh also i just wanna add that for some reason i got a fuck ton more kinky as a trans man but i think that was probably just the libido increase. i became interested in things i am not into as a woman. for example if someone wanted to tie me down and whip me as a woman, or lick/suck a body part of mine as a woman it would be a hell no. but as a trans man it was always a hell yes.

2023.06.06 05:22 Responsible_Slip_243 A fraction of its price for control and power

I just realize how powerful bitcoin can be. Some sees it as a tool to get rich but what is the point of being rich if a country's gov continues to be corrupted and makes the currency have even less value over time. IMO, Bitcoin is really a tool for the people to control their country political agendas at the end of the day.
I imagine a scenario, where prime ministepresident make a declaration to do something that majority people do not agree with but insist of doing it anyway. We can go to protest in front of the parliament and get tear gas. In result, many are heavily injured from a simple protest and this is from the best surviving scenario. Long story short in most cases, nothing changes in the end. All effort gone to waste. Down the drain.
But what happen if at least thirty percent of the population unanimously decided to take out their wealth from the central bank and buy bitcoins as a form of protest. Government will have to do something right? Because they realize that their resources has just lessen for other expenditures. What do they do next? A ban in purchase of bitcoin and use of cryptocurrency? Is that even possible when there is an increasing number of platforms to buy from? An execution or jail imprisonment? Isnt that a bit ridiculous because there could be underage that buys it too or bought a long time ago. Gov could print more money but that would devalue the currency even more and this angers many industralists/capitalists and will lose their supports especially the foreign investors. As more time is being wasted, opposing party will gain more power and votes by ridiculing the government. To stop wasting time, gov will take drastic action which leads to a re-election or a change in declaration.
Good and favored government will receive more fund from foreign investors which will strengthen the country currency and help their country to be on the right track. So that's the part when people sell their bitcoins to buy back their currency right? Faith within the country improves and perhaps restored. Reality, not all would sell but people gain something more important which is the control of country by the people.
I truly feel this is how bitcoin could help people to achieve true democracy. A full control by the people, from the people and for the people.
Since day one till now, the people have lost control of their country politics right? This will go on for another century or more. The current price of Bitcoin reflects the desperation of the people who wants to change their government to improve their life. Is the current price of it too high for the change of the country? I don't think so especially if one can buy a fraction of its price. A fraction of its price for power is truly not expensive.

2023.06.06 05:20 pokwerpok AITA for just wanting a biological child?

So I (F35) and my partner (F35) already have 2 children together, and thinking of third. We both went through succesful IVF treatments and both gave birth to a biological child. We were left with 5 extra embryos from my partner's IVF, and none from mine. These embryos were freezed for possible future treatments.
It's always been clear that I'm the one who wants to get pregnant again, and that I wish to use my own egg cells. My partner knows this, and has always said, that she knows how important it is for me to have another biological child, and she's been cool with that - up until recently.
Now that we're actually moving on to the treatments, she's started to take her words back. She says (or strongly insists), that as we have embryos frozen (hers'), we should use them instead. Her main arguments are: A) That if I'd gave birth to another biological child to our family, we (as refereing to me, and then my two biological children) would "hold the power" in our family, and she and her biological child would be left "powerless" as we'd take the upper hand. B) That if I don't want to use her embryos, and want to use my own egg cells instead, that automatically means that I love the child from her egg cells less than than "my own".
And there's really nothing I can say that would prove that's not true at all and that it's not about the amount of love. As said, I've always had a strong wish to have another biological child. I can't explain it, it just has always been my dream. But she says it's not a valid argument, and that if don't want to use her frozen embryos, that just proves that I love less our mutual daughter from her egg cells, and more my bio daughter. Also, she said she doesn't know if she's okay with the idea of me using my egg cells, and may not want a third child at al if we're not using her embryos.
And to make this a question of power dynamics feels really weird to me.. like what? That thought honestly had never even passed my mind. I consider all our kids our kids, not mine or hers', and I never think of our relationship as a game of who's got more power, and also would never use "this power" against her. Idk, this is really hard for me to grasp how this can be such a big factor for her in this matter.
So help me out, dear Redditors! I'm really confused, feel strongly pressured and like I don't have a choice but to agree to use her embryos, or else there won't be a baby number 3 at all. And I'd love this child such as much, it's just that I feel I'm being forced into this, and that my views are belittled and invalidated.
So AITA in this scenario for wanting a bio child? Are her arguments just better?

2023.06.06 05:17 Possible-Fox3570 AITA For Turning My Friends Against Another Friend For Doing Drugs

I (20F) have been friends with my best friend "Stacy" (20F) for 10 years now. Obviously like all friends so we have had our ups and downs, but that was all when we were younger. I was one of the only friends that stood next to her and helped her through her first pregnancy when we were both still in high school. She then got pregnant a year after we graduated. I helped her get a job at the place I was working at they offered both of us manager positions. She turned it down but I accepted. I eventually left and went to a better job in the field that I am studying in college now. She was halfway through her second pregnancy when I left.
That's when I started noticing issues but didn't say anything. For instance, she became very distant from me and wasn't really talking to me unless she needed something. She did have the baby about 2 months early and he stayed in the hospital for a little bit for having breathing issues but eventually, he did go home. She does not know who the father is. She is saying that the guy she is letting see the baby is the father. If he is the father, then he is not suitable to be around the baby but obviously, that's not my place to say, then he got her pregnant right before he went to jail. He was in for her whole pregnancy and then some. The first time I met him was around Christmas and didn't like him right off the bat.
I stopped by her house for something a few months ago and her mom told me that DSS was involved in something but I didn't tell my friend about because I saw it as something that if she wanted me to know she would have told me and I'm completely understanding with that stance.
A month goes by and I go to her neighbor's house to pick my sister up because she was over there with her friends that lived there. My friend never liked those people. I found it weird that she was with them, and again I didn't say anything. When we left my sister asked me when my friend was moving and I told her that I never knew my friend was moving. My friend never told me she was moving.
By the time I got home which was about 5 minutes at most, I went to text my friend and she had already removed me from all social media and she didn't have a phone number for me to text.
Weeks go by and I don't hear from her so I think we don't have a friendship anymore. I have her family on Facebook and talk to them often. They didn’t know that "Stacy" wasn’t speaking to me. A few weeks after not hearing from her a family member had posted saying that "Stacy" tested positive for meth and that DSS let her write the kids off to the new boyfriend's mother (the kids have different dads) who she nor the kids have ever met. Before she did that though she removed her mom off of that paper because she was convinced her mother and I told DSS about the meth. We didn’t. We didn’t even know about it until "Stacy" tested positive.
The day after she tested positive she and the boyfriend’s mother rented a U-haul truck and packed everything up of theirs including the kid's stuff. And the next day moved to Texas which is where the boyfriend and his family are originally from. Since the boyfriend was released from jail he can’t leave the county let alone the state so she is living with her kids and a bunch of people she doesn’t know in a state she doesn’t know. She does not speak to her family or me anymore. She still has her family on Facebook though and she just announced that she is pregnant with her third child.
I went to see her mom recently and she told me that “Stacy” had become very abusive to her oldest child who is 3 now both verbally and physically but absolutely loved the new baby. “Stacy” had also moved out of her mom's house, left the kids with her mom, and moved into the neighbor's shed.
My main concern is that DSS didn’t do a background check on the lady that she gave the kids at the DSS place after taking them from her mother. The lady that has them now has DUIs and charges for child endangerment. How DSS didn’t see this we don’t know.
A lot of people have been reaching out to me and asking how “Stacy” is doing, including her old co-workers. Nobody knew anything. All they knew was that she had to move suddenly. So when they ask I have been telling them the honest trust. She is on meth. And that she is pregnant again and still using it.

2023.06.06 05:03 Screamthisaway I quite therapy today even though I probably need it

I had been seeing this therapist for a few months and I just never felt comfortable with her, didn't "click". Stopped for a couple of months, went back today, ended the appointment halfway through saying I just didn't feel like it was helping me.
This is the third therapist in a row this has happened to, over a number of years. Part of it is because I feel ridiculous complaining about my issues. I have a successful career, pretty healthy marriage, amazing kids that seem to think I'm a decent father. I'm a trust fund baby who graduated from college with zero debt. I'm healthy and don't have mental illness despite the fact that my entire family does.
I am also constantly tired, burned out, fantasize about quitting my job, constantly live in the past regretting things I did decades ago that don't matter anymore, am often anxious and irritable, constantly set goals for myself that I don't follow through on, and feel like I'm floating through life without really living it. In short, I sound like a walking definition of a whiny, privileged white guy with first-world problems who just needs to shut up and go do something about it. Most of you out there deal with much worse shit than I ever have. I don't even like complaining to my wife about any of this because it'll just worry her even more, and she does more than enough of that already with everything she has to deal with, also worse than anything I do. I did therapy because she kept pushing it, but maybe this isn't what I need? I don't fucking know anymore.
The only therapist who ever helped me, 20 years ago, also turned out to be a crazy crunchy-granola 9/11 truther, so I don't feel like I can go back to her. Maybe I don't need therapy and just need to get away by myself somewhere, but that's basically impossible now.

New Terran Refugee (Pt - 20) : An NOP fanfic
Thanks to u/SpacePaladin15 for letting people write fanfics.
This is just a fanfic of course.
This chapter went through several iterations, I might have let myself think I could release it 1 week late (and failed). Also, I might have gotten sidetracked with other non-writing thing, oops.
“OOPS! All Rewrites! And side projects!” – Me
In any case, here’s the chapter:
Memory transcription subject: Tayla, Venlil Widow
Date [standardized human time]: October 18, 2136
The first thing I became aware of was that I had awoken enveloping a richly warm pillow with a soft surface from above, and that not only was it hot but that it was also soft and squishy but without too much give, in fact it was somehow firmer below the surface, I snuggled closer to the material that was emanating heat below me and drove off my mind’s attempts at waking me up, this was too blissful an experience to stop suddenly.
The second thing I became aware of was that I didn’t remember replacing my heated pillow as the cold wind season was still expected to be a good deal of time away and that I had much more important things to spend my limited budget on.
The third thing I became aware of was that I wasn’t hugging a pillow, this only happened when I noticed that it wasn’t moving because I was snuggling into it, but rather moving in a steady motion against me, like when someone breathes while asleep.
The fourth thing I became aware of, were the memories of what led me into this situation ‘Just gonna close my eyes for a moment’; Why did I lie to myself like that?
The final thing I became aware of snapped me out of my musings, it was the reason I woke up, and the reason I had crashed so hard into sleepiness.
The consequence of drinking copious amounts of [shade root] tea to keep watch over Jorge until I could call the number in the email during the schedule it had included beneath itself, this was made worse by the cans of ‘Twilight Energy’ I had drank at the end when more drastic measures had to be taken.
I couldn’t ignore it I couldn’t help but feel the pressure mounting inside my bladder as I peeled myself off from on top of Jorge. Why did I move so much while asleep?
Oh Protector, I missed his warmth already…
I made a mental note to look into repairing my heated pillow for cheap due to a sudden urge to sleep with something warm more frequently, the abrupt thought jogging loose some memories about contact information of some local repairvenlil I’d called before for one reason or another, along with the memory of the number I called before… napping with Jorge…
A great feeling of chagrin manifested along with my bloom while closing Jorge’s bathroom door behind me as I remembered the text beneath the schedule, ‘Extended working hours during emergency situations’, the aftermath of antimatter bombing definitely applied… especially since that Mrs. Bennet sounded so exhausted so soon after the supposed start of her work claw.
I decided to chalk up my lapse in judgement to have been due to how Jorge’s expression before he sealed himself in had left my thoughts racing and heart pounding in worry over him.
With my thoughts somewhat settled, I examined the strange toilet that had been installed, before throwing caution to the winds when the urgency I felt reasserted itself with force.

After closing the lid and washing my paws, I finally found what had to be the equivalent of the pulley and chain, a small, recessed button parted into 2 asymmetric parts on the top middle part behind the seat.
I pressed both parts at the same time just in case.
A small eep escaped me but was drowned out by the noises that were still coming from the strange toilet!
Finally, the ruckus ended, letting me calm down from the unexpected loudness. Wait, did that noise wak-
A bigger eep escaped me as I jumped a little into the air; However this time it wasn’t drowned out by another noise.
“¿you ok in there?” I could barely make out Jorge’s voice through the door, like he was putting in the barest effort needed to speak.
“Y-yeah, j-just startled…” I opened the door as I trailed off, a sudden realization had me asking him a question, “I guess I know how It felt w-when I s-startled you h-huh?”
His normally expressive face remained still, the only reaction to my attempt at lightening the mood a brief exhale from his nose; He simply slipped past me as I left the bathroom and muttered something I didn’t quite hear just before shutting the door softly.
I went back to the bed and turned on his pad, after a few seconds of waiting for it to turn on, and a few more waiting for my translator to parse the strange [date and time] format the humans used (Honestly, who separated the [hours] and the [days/months] like that?) I felt a bit of relief as I sank a bit into the still warm bed.
According to the pad, I’d just taken a short nap, I still had plenty of time until my children came back home, hopefully I had enough time to actually have some kind of talk with Jorge.
I’d have to somehow get him to talk about last Paw’s… reaction of his, and find a way to convince him to talk about his family, It’d be good for him to recognize that pain, maybe he’d even hold onto it like me…
That thing that the humans called a toilet interrupted my train of thought before I could do more than think of the barest of ways I could breeze into such heavy topics, the small delay between the toilet’s sound, the groaning of water travelling to the faucet, and the door opening wasn’t even enough to get back on my mind’s [zephyr].
A quick focus on Jorge’s face made my determination start to breeze away a bit, it was much easier to think of how to talk to him when I couldn’t see just how heavily everything [to wear down like a long strong gale would] on him.
Jorge deflated slightly but visibly at how I apparently froze up at the sight of him.
“well, thanks, i… feel better, you can just… leave me be for now”
Jorge stood still, averting his eyes from me until he shrugged strangely after turning to look at the barricade, he then shuffled over and started to shift it to the side a bit, evidently wishing to put it back in place after I left.
“ah” he cleared his throat, “sorry, you can leave now” he returned to averting his eyes from looking at me and awkwardly motioned towards the wide opening he had made after dragging the barricade as he stepped away morosely.
“Jorge.” I paused to breathe; I’d managed to huff out his name just as I needed to exhale.
Jorge stood still for a moment before tentatively focusing on me, a strangely vulnerable expression sat on his face.
I patted the bed (an appropriate and proper distance away from me) with my tail before curling it away from the spot, he seemed to get the message and soon he had sat down beside me, brief moment of hesitation notwithstanding.
I turned my head towards him as I’d seen him do when talking, he flinched a little when his eyes met mine, closing them and averting his face, I reached out for his nearby claw with my tail and put it down gently on top.
I waited patiently for him to start talking; Thankfully the wait was short.
“this… ¿is this about… my reaction yesterday?”
“Yes,” I squeezed down on his claw softly with my tail in a comforting gesture, “I wanted to speak with you about that sooner, but for now…” another gentle squeeze, “I’m just glad you seem to be doing a little bit better.”
Silence enveloped us as Jorge seemed to mull over what I’d just said.
A small hint of a hunch had me examining him more closely, it seemed he was anxiously waiting for me to talk some more.
I chastised myself internally, ‘Of course he wasn’t going to be feeling very talkative…’, how could someone jump straight into talking about such a topic? It’d probably be better to start with other stuff and gauge things from there; With that my mind sifted through possible topics until one stood out.
“S-so, I kind of… used up a lot of your powdered ingredients… heh…” I took in his features, he seemed halfway here and halfway far away.
Maybe… Maybe if I somehow mentioned the call to remind him that there were more humans he could try talking to? Just in case he was getting tired of my clumsy attempts at talking with him…
“I, uh, didn’t think of asking Mrs. Bennet about their availability when I called her this Paw, s-sorry about that… b-but I’m sure they’ll get some more that you can use soon, right?”
That got a reaction, a small one, out of him; His eyes widened. It… felt wrong.
“o-oh, well, i’d better get started packing then…”
An impossibly heavy weight settled deep inside my stomach as he moved his claw out from under my frozen tail tip, my throat clenched up as Jorge got up and limply started wading to his bag.
I stared in mute horror as he dumped his clean body coverings into it, trying to communicate anything to him, and failing miserably as the sheer disbelief of just how horribly I had miscommunicated kept me frozen, while the pain and betrayal I could imagine him feeling kept my mind reeling.
He stopped just as he reached his bag, his claws clenched for a moment before he unclenched them slowly and turned around to look directly at me.
He’d shed more tears, his eyes were an ugly and fresher shade of red.
“y-you were waiting down here for me to wake up again just to have this conversation as soon as possible. ¿am i right?”
Th-this wasn’t supposed to go like this!
“I… I was-”
“I!” interrupted Jorge with an elevated tone of voice, “…Earlier, I woke up and went back to sleep a few times, I could see you sitting on the stairs, sometimes you and your pad would be missing, I kept thinking that maybe you were worried about me ¿you know?”
“I-” An intense look from him kept the rest of my response in my head; ‘I was!’ I wanted to plead.
“I guess you didn’t plan for me falling asleep after crying…” He trailed off and seemed to go into deep thought for a moment, before his eyes narrowed dangerously. “¿Did you just bring me that Atole to soften the blow?” He held up one of his claws towards me while making a stabbing motion with it, his voice came out as a much lower growl than normal from him. “¿Or was putting me to sleep part of the plan?”
My face felt as if I’d been hit by an icy gale. ‘Did he just insinua-?’
“You’re fucking heartless.” That last sentence from him was punctuated by a fresh set of tears from his eyes, though no sobbing came from him as he let himself fall backwards down onto the floor, like a puppet with its strings suddenly cut.
My heart was beating wildly, and my eyes stung from the horrible accusations that he was making, and from how I’d probably be doing just what he had said if this had happened a few days ago…
I gave myself a moment to recollect myself, I’d thought similar enough things when I was alone in the hospital after losing my family, not nearly as extreme but… my circumstances back then and his right now weren’t comparable.
I shuddered internally at how much worse I’d have fared if it had been Venlil Prime that had been attacked; I’d probably… I’d have tried to do what he tried last night…
With a sigh I focused consciously on Jorge, who was breathing a bit more steadily now, as I picked up the bottle and moved steadily towards his alert gaze.
I sat down in front of him and opened the bottle, he narrowed his eyes even further in response, making the redness and glistening more pronounced, the patches of fur above his eyes changed position as well; I didn’t quite know what it meant, but it couldn’t possibly have been from him feeling happy or at peace.
I pushed through the sense of fear that was starting to form from being under his stare and took in the rest of his body language… I readjusted my position and observed as he flinched away from me…
I slowly raised the bottle and drank; The patches of fur over his eyes returned to their normal position, overshot and stayed raised while the intensity of his stare diminished. Finally, he tilted his head ever so slightly.
After a few gulps more I stopped drinking and offered him the bottle, he still wasn’t accepting it; I wiped my lips and prepared to speak.
“…I wouldn’t do that to you…” A small quiver at the end made me trail off until I was certain my voice wouldn’t fail me. I wouldn’t do that now. “None of those things, I mean… Even after all I did… You gave me a chance…”
“When you put it like that…” Jorge wiped his eyes. “I mean, I don’t know what came over me…” He looked to the side and deflated a little.
“I understand… I was like this too…” A small shiver traveled through my spine, thinking about it always did… I ignored the shiver by standing up and offering him the bottle again, this time he grabbed it and drank deeply.
He trailed behind me, we sat down on opposite sides of the bed, him hugging his legs as he sat against the wall, and me with one leg over the edge of the bed with the other one crossed over it.
Dozens of starting points were flurrying in my head, I couldn’t decide on one, so I cleared my throat and let myself say whatever came out first.
“I’m married.” Jorge became extremely visibly confused. “I-I’m a Widow, I meant to say…” The familiar sting of pain grounded me as his expression changed into one I could recognize even from him, pity.
“He-” died “…It happened 11 years ago, I… I lost my family at the same time…”
Jorge’s expression softened even more, no longer out of pity, but out of understanding… of the pain we shared…
“It was my dad’s idea, he’s always wanted to have a big family homestead… when the latest batch of colonies were finally cleared for habitation he bought a plot immediately, my sister and her husband went with them first, then my brother and his wife, and finally me and…”
This whole talking thing was much harder than I thought… I cleared my throat; I couldn’t go on just omitting any names in my retelling…
“Krayla, that’s my mother’s name.” I paused, waiting for his reaction, he ‘nodded’ slowly, solemnly. “Tavk’io, my dad; Talnum, my b-brother; Tahyiya, m-my sister; …a-and Glim, m-my husband…”
I buried my head in my paws, this was too much…
A moment passed, I felt something brush against my tail; Opening my eyes I saw that it was Jorge’s claw, he patted the tip gently until his eyes met mine.
“Emiliano José Cauich Ayala, t-that’s my father’s name.” He paused to breathe and wiped his eyes. “Ixchel Paola Rojas Canul, that’s my mother’s name.”
We stayed in silence for a while longer, at least in my case recovering from the emotional toll that I had just gone through.
“S-shortly after we arrived at the colony,” I began. “I l-learned I was p-pregnant, G-Glim and I celebrated it with my family, we were going to name our baby after my brother and his wife, Kiyomi. It… It was something we had all come up with [years] before, everything was going just like we had dreamed and talked so much about…”
I squeezed my tail against myself, all those nights at the colony laughing and joking with each other about increasingly outlandish names (ones that we’d never use of course), gone just like that…
“G-Glim and Talnum were busy helping the colony expand by clearing new plots for development and as buffer zones, I helped around with Taylee and Talim when needed but I helped dad with the house most of the time; There were always things that needed to be taken care of after all. Th-then one day in the colony, I f-fainted while picking up Taylee and Talim from school, a f-few [weeks] after that… I had to be sent back here since the colony’s hospital had lost their last equipment shipment to an Arxur raid.” I paused and lowered my voice. “G-Glim stayed behind to take extra assignments, t-to cover expenses, h-he… he was… he was on his last pawful of shifts b-before leave wh-when…”
I took a deep breath and let it out slowly.
“…D-dad was at home looking after the kids, he’d sprained his leg while doing some maintenance, he called me early in the morning there, Talnum and Glim were in some kind of assignment together, and my mother had taken everyone else to get stuff from the market to prepare a farewell meal f-for Glim…” And after that… “The call disconnected abruptly, it had happened before so I… I j-joked to m-myself a-and the nurse that it was p-probably j-just the signal failing because I wasn’t there to maintain things p-properly…”
Tears started forming in my eyes again, Jorge shuffled closer, put his soft claw on my shoulder and gave a light squeeze, his warmth spread throughout me.
“…A few claws later I learnt the truth, that the colony had been raided and that the shelter had been breached, shortly after that, I… I lost my…” I did my best to look him directly in his eyes. “After that… I started planning how to get to the hospital’s roof…” There, a glint of recognition and pain in his eyes. “I was just waiting for the rescue fleet to finish up there, just in case, thankfully… my dad hid Taylee and Talim in one of the [Kitchen] cabinets after taking down the family pictures, since he couldn’t take them to the shelter, he… Taylee told me that he… he begged her to keep quiet before closing the cabinet. She stayed in there with Talim for I don’t even know how long… She… She hasn’t talked about it ever again.”
Another squeeze, then silence and cold as he retracted his claw back towards him, his face turning to another side while taking on some kind of thoughtful intensity.
“S-So… What I’ve been trying to say was… I kind of understand what you’re going through… A-and if you want to talk… I-I’m here?”
A small ‘nod’, and more silence. My eyes were beginning to feel heavy again, that nap hadn’t been enough it seemed.
Jorge harrumphed, causing a bolt of wakefulness to course through me as he began speaking, filling in the silence that had fallen on the room.
“…I don’t think I’m ready yet…” His face turned towards me once more. “But… thank you, for sharing, and for worrying about me, I… If you hadn’t been there when I drifted into and out of sleep…” His eyes widened in a flash. “Wait. ¿You haven’t slept right? ¿Are you feeling OK?”
“I-I t-took a nap after you f-fell asleep…” B-beneath him… “Y-you left a lot of space…” He did, but I couldn’t get to it from under his legs…
“Good, good…” His eyes flicked between me and the door. “Well… I suppose you’ve got stuff to do now. ¿Am I right?” Somehow, the expression that sat now on his face felt forced in a way. I kept quiet as I rummaged through my memories of The Aftermath.
Of course, he was trying to get me out to wallow in peace, just as I did…
That was the last thing he needed right now.
I needed to find a way to get him out of this room…
“Actually… I’m free until my kids get back, I’m used to taking care of chores quickly.”
“Right…” Jorge seemed to slowly steel himself, if I didn’t interrupt me, he’d just ask me to leave directly…
I tried to think faster, but the drowsiness was returning in force, it was no use… Unless…
“H-Hey!” My exclamation startled him, I pressed on to keep the momentum strong. “I uh, I kind of went through my whole supply of [shade root] tea to stay awake…” I didn’t. “And… I don’t really want to drink more energy drinks this Paw, I don’t suppose you have something to stay awake with you?”
Jorge blinked, again, once more, and again one last time before responding.
“¿I… think I have some coffee I could make?” He tilted his head adorably to one side as he scratched his head with one claw.
“Sounds perfect! Would you please make me some?” I stood up before he could even answer, reached for his idle claw and tugged at it towards me; He stood up in what seemed like a daze out of reflex.
We spent the next few [minutes] browsing the intact shelf, whatever this coffee was, it wasn’t there, the tentatively positive mood that had formed cracked a little as Jorge looked at the shelf barricade before he trudged over to it, stopping beside it where he gestured at vaguely with his claw.
We stepped past the barricade, tried not to look at each other, failed, shuffled in place for a moment and began sifting through the items strewn about the floor in an unspoken agreement.
It wasn’t long until I found myself holding a container that my translator insisted was labeled ‘Instant Coffee’. “Hey,” I started while turning, “is this the ri-” Jorge was looking intensely at something on the floor, I followed his gaze and saw it, the broken remains of the flame projector.
“J-Jorge?” I extended my tail cautiously towards his arm, his claws ceased to strain against themselves following the subtle flinch he had when the tip of my tail made contact with him.
I gave him the ‘Instant Coffee’ I was holding and scooped up the remains to dispose of them properly this time; Jorge held up the container and murmured an affirmation at me, I gestured for him to lead the way and proceeded to follow him to the [kitchen].
I raced my way directly to the trash container, separated the single-use fuel cannister from the remains I was holding, and dumped the inert bits inside; I’d have to take this last part to a proper disposal collection point in town some other time. For now, I glanced at Jorge and tucked it into a discreet spot in the cabinets when he wasn’t looking. Only after that did I notice what a mess I’d made up here despite my best efforts at cleaning up…
Jorge’s eyes were scanning all over the [kitchen], taking in every splotch, every spill and every crusted over utensil I’d used, he lingered noticeably longer on the open and haphazardly arranged containers of his that I had used, finally he stared at the Vanilla Extract bottle with a soft expression, it was the only container that had remained completely spotless and didn’t have a significant amount of its contents drained.
Yet another unreadable expression had settled on his face as he took a big pot and barely put any water in it, the other more reasonably sized ones just too dirty to deal with quickly, before putting it to boil on the [stove top].
“Uh…” He shifted his weight from one leg to the other a few times. “I… never did thank you for the drink earlier ¿Didn’t I?”
“N-no but there’s no ne-”
The patches of fur above his eyes furrowed together.
“You… mentioned before that you entered the program for money…” He looked confused. “¿Why didn’t you just… ask for me to be picked up? You’d have gotten someone else in no time… Hell, I’d still understand if you did it now. You don’t have to go through all this trouble for me.” The confused expression deepened as he gestured at the messy remains around us.
He was waiting for an answer.
“I… w-well I d-did enter for the money… b-but… I don’t want to just replace you… I like being around you. I d-don’t know if we’re there yet… But I’d like to be… f-friends! W-with you someday…” Oh Protector, I couldn’t be more obvious unless I just came out and said it…
“Well for what it’s worth… Thank you Tayla, you don’t know what that means to me right now.” He was looking directly at me, with raw emotion and palpable aliveness, my face started to feel as if I was standing under sunlight…
“I-It was the l-least I could d-do…” It was worth it even though he didn’t seem to understand quite what I accidentally meant before…
I was spared from further embarrassment by the pot of water sizzling violently behind Jorge who turned around in a blur to turn the heat off, while he did that I grabbed two (clean) mugs and set them down near him, though I didn’t move my paws quite fast enough as his claw brushed against me while he moved the mugs closer to him to pour the water on them.
He let the water cool down a little as he put his sugar and ‘Instant Coffee’ containers close to the mugs; He poured the less-than-boiling water into the mugs, stirred in a measure of ‘Instant Coffee’ and a measure of sugar as well.
He passed me a mug with a cryptic warning. “If it’s not to your taste, let me know.” Then he grabbed the other one, sipped a little and waited.
The mischievous glint in his eyes left me no choice, I’d have to play along for now; I raised the mug and sipped…
I futilely attempted to remove the grimace from my face; Strangely, the roar of laughter I expected was nowhere to be heard, I found myself looking at Jorge with some amount of concern, though the clear, if understated, smile he sported calmed me down somewhat.
Wordlessly, Jorge reached for my mug and the can of powdered coconut milk, he then proceeded to mix in a little of it in both mugs, turning the liquid from a dark oily brown to a much lighter tone. Finally he mixed in a single drop of his Vanilla Extract in each mug and gave me back mine.
I gave him the best glare I could manage as I pouted at him, he took a deep drink from his own mug and held it up for me to examine.
With a sigh I tried mine again.
Warm. Flowery. Smooth. Bitter but not too much, like a perfectly harvested root. But most importantly of all, I could feel myself waking slightly more already, whether it was just self-suggestion or the drink having an effect so soon I couldn’t tell.
Once more, the reaction I expected from Jorge was missing, this time he seemed to be lost in thought, staring at a distant point in the air.
I took a moment to examine him, whatever he was thinking, it was starting to fester. It’d be better to get him talking “What’s wrong?” I asked.
“It’s no-” He shook his head. “It’s just… I… my dad… he liked to drink his without adding anything, no sugar, no… coconut milk…, and… me and mom used to tease him about it…” He was retreating into himself once more.
I kept drinking my coffee; There had to be something else I could talk with him about…
Jorge straightened up, something about his posture, about the way he held himself had changed.
“Say… Tayla… ¿Can I ask you for a favor?” Despite the confidence he exuded he was running one of his claws over the back of his mug repeatedly.
“W-what kind of favor?”
“There’s something I want, no, something I need to make for the end of the [month], and… I’m going to need your help getting the stuff, I’d just ask you to get it all for me, but honestly that wouldn’t be right.”
“O-ok, but you still haven’t told me what the favor is?”
“I need to buy flowers, candles, a good tablecloth, and see what dishes I can actually make here that’d be good enough.”
“W-What for?” W-Was he? My heart was beating wildly in a peculiar mix of elation, nervousness and apprehension.
“I’m going to make an Altar for Day of the Dead (Día de Muertos), it’s the least I can do for my family all the way over here.”

2023.06.06 04:53 Neckbeard_Gamer_420 Region wide packet loss, AT&T will not repair or recognize

My first post never made it but I have discovered a region wide packet loss issue in my area that AT&T will not recognize.
I have gone through 4 tech visits, 3 gateway devices, 2 separate wires, a new install of service (EarthLink via AT&T), countless chats, countless phone calls and have notified at least 10 AT&T representatives about this issue.
I will be bringing this to public record at my local Town Hall meeting Wednesday to gain awareness in hopes that AT&T addresses this if more users report it.
I can provide AT&T representatives with the IP address of the node that needs to be rerouted off of or repaired. I have gone as high as I can go within AT&T as well as EarthLink. This problem is up to AT&T to fix with their routing team and presidential tech department. I can also provide ticket numbers, chat records of me explaining this issue in very clear terms as well as call logs to show how long I have been trying to get this problem recognized.
I have full documentation of this issue, re-creatable from any user of Fiber that uses that AT&T node as its first hop. To document this yourself do the following:
Run a tracert to any endpoint (Google DNS is good
Find the first AT&T node you hit which should be the first hop off your local network
ping -t that IP address and if you get a request time out every 15 minutes you are either in my region or the AT&T node closest to you is having the same issue.
I can't stress enough that this is a region wide issue and that ANY user of fiber, no matter the vendor since our area is AT&T infrastructure, can re-create this problem.

2023.06.06 04:52 MyNi_NotYourNi When 242M really means 9.68M ... y u play with our heartstrings so!

When 242M really means 9.68M ... y u play with our heartstrings so!
MULN put out this prospectus today that talks about the resale of 242M shares of common stock:
Except, it's really 9.68M in post-split numbers.
Because the amendments are to a prospectus that was issued pre-split (Feb 14, 2023), we have to divide all the numbers here by 25. So when they say 242,124,674 shares, they actually mean 9,684,987 shares post-split.
First supporting data point - this arcanely worded sentence in this prospectus:
Except as otherwise indicated, all share and per share information in this prospectus supplement gives effect to the reverse stock split of our outstanding Common Stock, which was effected at a ratio of one-for-twenty-five (1-for-25) (the “Reverse Stock Split”) as of 12:01 a.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, May 4, 2023 (the “Effective Time”).
Second supporting factoid - if you compare the "Selling Shareholders" section in this prospectus to the same section from the immediately prior prospectus from April 18, 2023 (2 weeks before the RS) you will see that the share counts are very similar in magnitude. Unless they all got 25x shares in the intervening 2 months (they did not), these are using the same base for counts. I.e. pre-split.
Immediate prior prospectus, pre-split (April 13):
Current prospectus, post-split (June 1):
(p.s. you can use the difference between these two tables to see who took up the first $45M 😉)
Third supporting point - the share count in the "Number of Shares of Common Stock Owned Prior to Offering" column adds up to ~600M shares, while the current outstanding count is 218M. Obviously not possible.
Fourth supporting exhibit - this is what a corresponding para from an exhibit from a comparable prospectus of a company that did a prospectus amendment after a RS. Written by paralegal with more than two brain cells, where they care enough to do the math, so we don't have to:
... The Series D Warrants have an initial exercise price of $0.29 per share ($5.80 per share post-Reverse Stock Split) (subject to adjustment) and expire June 22, 2028. The Winx Warrants had an initial exercise price of $0.52 per share ($10.40 per share post-Reverse Stock Split) (subject to adjustment) and expire five years following the effective date of a registration statement covering the resale of common stock underlying the Series D Preferred Stock acquired by the Series D Investors. The Series D Preferred Stock and Series D Warrants were sold together as a unit (“Unit”), with each Unit consisting of one share of Series D Preferred Stock and three Series D Warrants. Each share of Series D Preferred Stock was initially convertible into three shares of Common Stock (0.15 shares post-Reverse Stock Split) (subject to adjustment upon the occurrence of specified events). The purchase price for the Units was $1.25 per Unit. The Units offering price and the Series D Warrants exercise price were priced above the Nasdaq “Minimum Price” as that term is defined in Nasdaq Rule 5635(d)(1). The shares of Series D Preferred Stock were initially convertible into an aggregate of 529,386 shares of Common Stock (26,470 shares post-Reverse Stock Split) following ...
(Different company, no relation to Muln, used for illustrative purposes only.)
So yeah.. the # of shares being sold is 9.6M as per this prospectus, and not 242M.
I wouldn't get too cozy though - there's $45M being paid up by SPA holders on June 12, 2023 - feel free to divide that by the stock price on June 11 to get the # commons that translates to, multiply by 2.85x to get total dilution amount, and that'll be the number hitting the market sometime after.
Important caveat: This is my interpretation only, and obviously not NFA. I could also be wrong. Do your own math and lemme know if I missed something.

2023.06.06 04:50 blowawaythedust I watched Porgan's entire 45-minute whine fest so you don't have to!

(Edited to add: I absolutely did not watch from their YouTube channel. I watched through a third-party link)
I almost counted the number of duck faces Morgan pulls during this video, but I think my brain would explode, but I did count hair touches! Let’s get into it.
0:15 – OMG this video is UnIqUe and SpEciAL, guys
0:25 – prayer for Sky Daddy to use their words in the white – I mean, RIGHT way, ft. Morgan’s SUPER weird “Ay-MAYn” at the end
0:57 – Youtube influencer is not an EASY profession; this “heat” we’re taking is affecting our BRAND DEALS (Morgan hair touch #1)
1:17 – shameless Patreon plug
1:30 – Morgan has prepared a monologue which Paul interrupts before she even begins. Sterilized statement about how they definitely believe people were hurt by the IBLP and that those people deserve to heal. “We believe that anyone who tries to use the word of God to manipulate and control people will be held accountable, maybe in this lifetime, but most certainly in the next lifetime.” “These documentaries serve a purpose” but they aren’t made by Christians (how can they even TELL that?), so they are Bad. “They don’t allow the gospel to be shared.” These kinds of documentaries push the deconstruction of Christianity as the only option, obviously. (Total hair touches during this section: 8.)
4:53 – “Look at my wife, she can read! Isn’t she cute?” – Paul, probably (Morgan looks so thrilled to have been allowed to speak for that long) (2 hair touches during his praise)
5:10 – Our patrons (all eleven of them!) wanted all the deets so that’s why we’re doing this! Not for the attention, you see!
5:30 – Morgan: “You may not care at all, which makes me wonder why are you even on this video.” For science, Morgan! For science! I need to know how many times one human can touch their hair in 45 minutes!
5:45 – Paul’s like, “these documentaries aren’t factual! These people are in it for the money! They’re trying to make entertaining content, so you’ll watch and give them more money!” Me: super side eye emoji (Hair touch count up to now: 12)
Guys guess what! Integrity wasn’t a leading goal for the film makers! They’re not like US!!! WE definitely wouldn’t do something just for money because we’re GOOD CHRISTIANS.
6:50 – They were super cautious going into this, just so that we all know. There were back and forths! “We knew someone who went on the Bachelorette! But don’t watch it or anything, for sure.” “We’ve seen how they twist situations to villanize ppl on these shows – especially Christians for SURE – and we told them we don’t WANT that mess.” “They told us they wouldn’t do that and we believed them, guys.” (Morgan hair touches during this section: only 1!)
8:20 – AgEnDa-DriVeN DoCuMeNtArY
9:00 – Fucking finally they’re getting to the story. They say they were reached out to about a year ago and ignored it, then were kind of hounded into it. It was pitched to them as a docuseries about how reality TV has affected online Christian influencers. They were cautious but thought it could be “cool” and “neat.” The production team said it was going to be like the “LuLaRich” docuseries, which Morgan really enjoyed. (Morgan touched her hair TWELVE times in two and a half minutes. Total now: 25)
11:30 – Side note: I’ve never watched a full video of theirs before. Does Paul always constantly correct Morgan or is this a special case for their special video? Every time he does it, she looks away from him and I can literally SEE her resetting and shoving any irritation down to deal with later (or never, ya know).
Also, they’re pissed bc in LuLaRich, there were all sides to the story, whereas in SHP there were not, but guess what Porgan – if you watch to the end of the final episode, it says the production team reached out to other parties and they declined to appear on the series. They were given an opportunity and turned it down, so…
(I think I missed a hair touch but I WILL NOT rewind this shit AGAIN)
12:45 – Paul’s family “touched the surface” of IBLP, but it was “very very little.” His parents thought most of it was “too extreme.” (2 hair touches)
13:00 – They made sure there wasn’t an NDA “PrAiSe GoD.” (1 hair touch)
13:45 – Paul demonstrates he has no idea how long pregnancy lasts – “You were what, 12 months pregnant at the time?” “12 WEEKS, idiot” (she didn’t say idiot but I WISH she had)
14:15 – But they TREATED us so WELL when they interviewed us!?!?!? They were SO NICE!?!?
14:34 – “It’s not like we’re idiots!” Au contraire, my Polio
15:00 – Evidently they talked about “heavy, cultural topics” during the interview but it was all cut. Paul confesses there’s “some overlap” between what they believe and what the IBLP teaches. The production team told them if they had merch or a book, to release it alongside the docuseries bc “you guys are about to blow up.” (total hair touches: 29 so far)
16:43 – Watching the docuseries: We may have made an oopsie. (Porgan, basically) Also, Morgan didn’t know what the phrase “bad actors should be exposed” meant. Wtf.
17:15 – Bad ppl should get in trouble, victims should be heard. “Where do we fit in this docuseries? Oh wait…” (3 more hair touches)
18:00 – We made a video condemning Josh Duggar! Doesn’t anybody remember that??? (2 hair touches)
19:15 – I will not say that Morgan is self-medicating in any way, but if she HAD been, it would have kicked in about now. She slurs her way through “differentiation” and it’s truly painful to watch. Also neither of them has heard of the Joshua Generation, but I’m assuming it’s only bc Luca isn’t old enough for them to start receiving emails and pamphlets about it yet. I got several when my kids were about eight and nine-ish. (There was a BIG hair touch here, so I’m counting it as two; sue me)
20:15 – “It was NOT a 360 view! It was a 180 view – which Paul accidentally wrote – “ “Ha, yeah. Right.” Did NOT look pleased about that comment from Morgan and he steamrolled through it. Morgan says the ppl who have deconstructed HATE faith, God, anyone who believes, religion – Paul says that’s sure what it felt like to him. Also guys, did you know that we are out to DESTROY people like them? I didn’t even know bc I’m having too much fun watching them destroy themselves.
21:15 – “Experts” in BIG finger quotations that were interviewed who are no longer Christians are STRUGGLING in life – I’m sure it’s not because they were abused or anything; it’s definitely the WORLD, Paul. For sure. (1 hair touch – total so far: 35)
22:02 – Jen gets a shoutout!
22:25 – We are the “fringe on the other side,” guys! Thinking about making that my new flair fr.
22:45 – More slurring from Morgan – don’t worry, she’s not mad! She stands by everything she said in all the clips they played. She’s only mad bc they LIED to them about what they were using their soundbites for. (4 hair touches)
23:32 – I’m going to die before this video ends. Someone send help.
23:50 – The other people interviewed for the series seem hurt, confused, struggling in their lives. (Not the vibe I got, but go off I guess)
24:00 – OMG you guys, there's a reddit hate group of TROLLS that hate Christians! We should definitely stay away from THAT place omg!!!
The documentary had an AgEnDa. Paul pauses here for a DEEP SIGH.
24:45 – Morgan says the documentary is saying that anyone who thinks homeschooling, order of leadership, going to church is a good thing is an extremist, terrible, fringe, awful. IBLP took a little piece of the Bible and ran with it (sound familiar? Bueller? Anyone?). (4 hair touches)
25:35 – They aren’t like that, so don’t worry! Figure it out on your own, using your own Bible! They aren’t perfect at all and don’t pretend to be! (if I roll my eyes any harder, they will get stuck in the back of my head)
26:23 – Pissed bc in the series, they are presented as the Joshua Generation, they spend a moment comparing the Joshua Generation to the left – liberal colleges, LGBTQ movement, pro- choice movement, etc. Reiterate they don’t know what the Joshua Generation is, tho. Leftists are trying to take over the world, apparently. “Gaslighting” and “hogwash” were said in this rant. (only one hair touch! Total so far – 44)
29:ish – Morgan promotes Jinger’s book, Paul corrects her word choice (AGAIN, Jesus). The GOSPEL is in that book, but not in this docuseries! Spoiler: Jinger did it right bc she “disentangled” not “deconstructed,” and got right with the word of GAWD. (1 hair touch)
30:45 – “If you haven’t deconstructed, you’re part of the problem,” Paul thinks the docuseries is saying. Morgan wonders if Jill was roped into this without knowing fully what she was going to be part of bc in case you guys haven’t picked up on it yet, THAT’S WHAT HAPPENED TO PAUL AND MORGAN. Paul thinks she knew what she was getting into. Morgan thinks Jill looks like she’s still working through things with her family. Morgan says Jim Bob did some “messed up things to his children…Disgusting…money hungry…needs to be held accountable.” Morgan then mentions that she hasn’t finished Jinger’s book yet, so she’s definitely an expert. (2 hair touches)
33:00 – Morgan thinks it’s “interesting” that Jinger and Jill view their upbringing differently. Weird how people aren’t all the same! (2 bonus hair touches!)
33:30 – Paul said the docuseries made him start to look at the way he was raised to see if maybe there was anything fishy about it, so that’s positive, right?
34:00 – Oh, wait. Should have known better. He comes out of that experience with, welllllll Christians SHOULD be seen as extreme in some ways – the Bible talks about Christians being hated by the world, stench in the nostrils of unbelievers – so it’s totally fine, you guys. He’s embracing extremism now. “Wear it proudly! Pride month, baby!” Brb. Gotta go vomit.
34:45 – Paul begins talking about how he was just casually reading today in Acts – he's definitely not a Pharisee or anything. Side note: if he says “SoUrCeS” one more time with BIG air quotes, I will hit something. Paul’s takeaway from the story he just read today in the book of Acts (where the apostle Paul says he counts his life as forfeit) is that the sources in the docuseries (whom he doesn’t respect, SHOCKER) would tell him he should just be happy and stop being an extremist! Stop being an IDIOT, apostle Paul!
35:29 – Morgan says that Christianity in itself is extreme to the world. I’m loving where this is going. /s
She says the world is “self first” and Jesus is “serve first.” I definitely don’t think she understands that they very much put themselves first in everything they do; when was the last time you or Paul actually SERVED anyone else something besides cringey videos, Morgy?
35:50 – Paul says they could come into any strong, good church and make them look like a cult. Huh. Shouldn’t be that easy, my guy. Maybe try making it seem like less of a cult? For PR.
36:12 – Morgan – “Put intense music behind anything and it sounds crazy. Make a girl be like, ‘And then, I had to pee!’” fake crying, big hair touch
Paul – “And THIS church believes THIS about the LGBTQ – I mean, that’s what the Bible says” SHOW me where it says that, Paul. I’ll wait.
“And they believe THIS about women’s rights! Well, we believe that children are valuable in the womb” – just not once they’re out of it, right?
36:35 – They stand behind everything they said in the documentary!
37:00 – They’re going to homeschool poor Luca – shocker
37:12 – big hair touch, weird high-five-amen about not letting anyone else influence their child
37:25 – Paul rejects all that “evolution stuff” and then does this weird bit where he pretends to be meek and mild and say that if he actually cared what ppl think of him, he would act this way and say he believes in evolution to “save face”
38:00 – Morgan’s giggle makes me want to unalive myself
38:19 – Paul reads statement from his phone about how they don’t like being lumped in with super fundamentalists and how IBLP isn’t based on scripture, but man-made laws and wasn’t Gospel-focused. I feel like they’re about to do an altar call
39:05 – oh shit I was almost right – “It’s not works-based, there’s nothing you can do. Christ already did it for you.” “Amen. Amen. AY. Men.” Weird prayer hands by Morgan, who seems more out of it by the second.
39:16 – “Guys, give this video a thumbs up!” Yay, two Duggar-affiliated people followed them on Insta! Morgan does heart-hands about that
40:ish – Morgan encouraging ppl who think they might be in a church that twists the word to go to the BIBLEH for the TROOFS – Paul amen’s like four times. It IS a sermon, complete with scripture! My favorite!
41:ish (I’m tired, don’t judge) – weirdly sped-up talk about how they don’t get many brand deals bc they only put out Christian content (suuuuure THAT'S why, Jan), and Patreon is important! SUPER weird handshake and at the end they say “GO TEAM” and it’s just so cringe I can’t anymore thank goodness it’s over omgggggg
The total hair touch count was FIFTY (50!). You’re welcome.

2023.06.06 04:38 jimmylomax LiftMaster 8550 was slow, now it won't move at all.

In drafting this request for help, I think I stumbled myself through figuring it out. I've pretty much re-written it 5 times as I went back and forth testing things and getting closer to the root cause. Since I failed to find my issue previously discussed and solved online, I thought I would still post it to 1) possibly help someone else and 2) see if I'm on the right track. I'll wait to order parts until at least tomorrow....
After a couple years of service since being installed in 2014, our very heavy garage door paired to a LiftMaster model 8550-267 opener instantly seemed to travel at a much slower speed (even with the door detached from the trolley). I had been assuming the motor was about to fail for the last couple years. When I initially noticed the motor had slowed down, I figured out that my door was out of balance (quite heavy for the motor as it would not stay half way open when off the trolley) and I tightened the torsion springs to get the door slightly better balanced as I was concerned something got overloaded and damaged and its days were numbered.
Last week the opener failed (in the up position) with "motor control error code 1-5". With the belt removed, the motor does not have any discernable rotation whatsoever. I can hear a relay close and feel the buzz of the motor for about 300ms before the relay opens and the buzzing stops.
I then disconnected the power and i/o harnesses from the control board, measured 0.9 ohm electrical resistance across 12VDC rated motor and had no issues driving the motor CCW and CW with a jumper connected to the 12V SLA backup battery. I power cycled the unit as well as left it disconnected from power overnight, reinstalled the power harnesses and got the same error code 1-5. Using the manual up and down adjustment arrows on the housing results in the same symptoms.
It seems the 100VA 120:19VAC transformer is used only for driving the motor. I was able to verify 120VAC and 19.5VAC on the primary and secondary windings during that ~300ms while I'm holding the up or down arrow on the controls.
Next, I measured the output voltage to the motor and measured only 1.80VDC. So it seems to me the AC/DC power supply portion of the control board is the culprit, right?
My control board says "45DCBL5 Rev C". [This page]( found when searching that part number shows the part as well as numerous interchangeable part numbers, "Also known as: 45DCBR1A, 041D7356, 1D7356, 41DCBC1A, 41DCBC3A, 41DCCC2A, 41DCBC5A, 45DCCL5A, 45DCCL3A, 45DCCL1A, 45DCCR5A, 41D7356, 45DCCR3A, 45DCCR1A, 001D7356, 41DCCC1A, 41DCCC3A, 45DCJL5A, 45DCRL1A, 41DCCC5A, 45DCRL3A, 45DCJL1A, 45DCJL3A, 45DCBL5A, 45DCBL3A, 45DCBL1A, 45DCBR5A, 45DCRL, 45DCBR3A"
I assume it's a safe bet to go ahead and order a new logic board at this point right? (Can you tell I have a pet peeve at throwing parts at problems?). Any other diagnostic check I should do before dropping the $150 on one? I did find a used one on ebay for about half of that - I'm still thinking through which route I'll go (guaranteed to work per the listing and seems quite easy to swap).
I'm guessing that this is not a common issue based on my previous lack of internet search findings (although I'm sure there are plenty of motors driving heavy non-balanced doors)
I'll certainly be making sure my door is in proper balance before I put the new board/components into service.
Any suggestions or troubleshooting tips would be greatly appreciated!

2023.06.06 04:37 antbestfriend The Face of NTM C6 - Week 12 - Elimination

Welcome back to The Face! The top 7 models stand at the ready in their first Korean panel. The judges, Ann, Atoosa, and Twiggy, stand before them. One with smiles, one with a bored expression, and well, one of them is Atoosa.
"Hey ladies! Did you miss me?" The models all applaud and cheer. "I missed you too! But I was here setting up our two photoshoots and preparing for your go-sees for fashion week. Are you excited?" They cheer again. "Good! But for one of you, your journey ends tonight."
Twiggy forces a smile, "You certainly know your prizes. The winner of The Face will receive: an international modelling contract with IMG Models AND Next Model Management, a one million dollar contract with MAC cosmetics, and you will become The Face of a brand of your choice! You will also be The Face of Ann's brand Seventeen Again! Finally, you will receive a cover and spread in The Face magazine as well as a cash prize of $500,000!"
The pessimistic judge checks her nails before rolling her eyes. Atoosa speaks, "You had three teams this week going head to head and then... Isabeli. We hope you like your partner work, but only one pair rose above the rest for immunity?"
The numbers begin to run on the screen.
>!Team 3!< is the first to fall as the two models hang their head in shame.
It's down between two teams.
The numbers roll....
And roll....
"Team 1!" Atoosa announces as the two models cheer. "You are immune this week, but did you need that immunity?"
Ann reveals the first photo, "Audrey, you finally rose to the top. Everyone knows that this week was your week. Your photo is absolutely gorgeous and you were a full point ahead from the model behind you. Congratulations, you get to have the final brief choice of the cycle. Choose wisely."
The model beams from ear to ear as she takes her photo with quiet thanks.
Twiggy reveals the second photo then, "Joan, come join your teammate. You chose well, but you will be split up from your teammate next week in a final head to head battle. You have fans, so keep your momentum."
Atoosa hands the third model her photo, "Jessica, this is gorgeous. Some people brought back the AI critique from your past, so just be careful. I don't see it, but someone brought it up again. Though, I'm really starting to think that's just what you look like."
It's Ann's turn again to share a photo, "Right in the middle, Rebecca! You've proven you can rise to the top before, so bring back that fire next week. Just don't bring back... Diaper couture? Man, people were weird this week. Congratulations, you are in for another round of The Face."
Three models remain, and only one can escape the bottom 2.
Twiggy shares the photo, "Breathe, Isabeli. Your photo didn't have people thinking of airplane bathrooms and this was a breath of fresh air. It's time to step it up these last few weeks if you want to be the next Face. You have a lot of powerhouses to conquer, but everyone loves an underdog."
Atoosa approaches the bottom 2 with a giddy smile on her face. She loves this part. "Hey ladies," she mocks Ann. "For both of you, your photos stood out... But not in the best way."
She faces the first model, "Daiane, this was polarizing. You have the pleats, you have the color, but people feel like they've seen this before over and over from you. We know you're gorgeous, but what else can you bring? This is your fourth visit to the bottom 2. Next week, bring the editorial energy and versatility."
Then, she faces the next model, "Nadja, our comeback queen. Someone predicted as a winner. But this photo? This isn't a winner's photo. Someone called this granny couture. It felt detached from your inspiration. We know you can rise to the occasion, and we know you can deliver. But this? It fell flat."
"So who stays?"
She reveals the final photo.
"Daiane, it's time to model like you've never modeled before. You, like Isabeli, have the underdog story and you have supporters. Prove that you earned your place here and show us you're strength. Congratulations."
The model breathes out a sigh of relief before hugging the eliminated model tight and taking her photo. Ann cuts Atoosa off from a tirade before walking forward to hug the eliminee tight.
"Nadja, what happened? This was not your best. You had some people that liked it, but when numbers are this tight? You need those people to love it to save you. I hope we see you again in the future, but for now, this is goodbye."
The model sniffles and dries her tears before going to say goodbye to the other models. She and her roommate share a long hug as she whispers for her to win.
Then as she walks out she calls, "I may be out, but none of you will ever live up to me. I am a legend! Good luck, ladies!"

2023.06.06 04:37 Luigifan18 SRB2 Add-on Idea: Prince Garcia

This is actually the first add-on idea I've been considering for SRB2 — yes, I was brainstorming this before I was brainstorming the Belnades Sisters. This is one of my very first Mario/Sonic OCs, and fair warning here, he's a bit OP. The character in question is Garcia… Garcia the Beanie Baby. Yes, I'm serious. (I'd have put up a link to Garcia's profile on Ty's website, but he's not there anymore.) Anyways, Garcia in my fanfics is a lot more than a teddy bear — he's a powerful pyrokinetic capable of giving Blaze a run for her money. So, here are some details on how he'd play.
