2023.03.29 21:03 thequeerbrowngemini Looking for queer and Muslim friends, connections, maybe even love who knows 👉👈

Assalamualaikum peeps! My name is Amaan. I'm a 22 yr old from India. I identify as gay. My pronouns are he/she/they. I'm a Genderfluid male.
I'm primarily posting because I'm looking for people who understand my experience; of being gay and Muslim, coming from homes that are not open to the idea of acceptance. I have been struggling with my faith, mostly because of how closely it's tied to my relationship with my family. I feel like if i find queer Muslim people to surround myself with and talk to, I might have the space to heal my bond to Islam.
I'm looking for friendship, a sense of belonging and i won't be too mad if i end up finding someone to love in the process 😂 . But most importantly I'm looking for a sense of belonging and kinship.
I hope y'all are having a great Ramadan. My texts are open if anyone wants to talk!

2023.03.29 21:01 hotcocoatoes Help with naming our baby girl

Hi! We are expecting a baby girl soon and are struggling to come up with names that we both can agree on. I would love some help brainstorming more names to suggest to him! Our plan is to have a short list we can both agree are "maybes" and go from there but even that seems like a task.
I've seriously suggested and really loved: Aubrey, Ava, Molly, and Eleanor. All are no's for him for different reasons (Eleanor is apparently an old lady name that he was very against, Aubrey and Ava he just doesn't like the sound of, Molly was an old family pet in his family so is a no for him).
I'm not a fan of the names he has suggested... our name preferences seem so different. He likes: Bailey, Skylar, Elena, Cassandra, Avery, and Melanie.
We are going to try the app Kinder again (tried and failed to find a match in the past before we knew the gender).
This will be our first child, so no sibling names for inspiration. And i'm not really sure how I would label either of our naming styles. Hopefully the lists of name suggestions from each of us paint a picture though!
Does anyone have any suggestions on names that might bridge the gap between our two name styles? Any help and name suggestions would be appreciated

2023.03.29 21:01 Helbrann Finished my first ever bingo card

Finished my first ever bingo card
Link to card
First time I ever participated and it was a blast! I managed to finish quite on time even, with lots of time to spare to put my thoughts to paper. A few of the squares were hard, and I started out with half of them meticulously planned out, but later on that all went in the bin and I shuffled around quite a bit. I did took the opportunity to start some series and classics I had on the to read list. Downside is that I now have bigger to read list than before. Overall I am quite satisfied, on to next year!

LGBTQIA List: Tamsyn Muir: Gideon The Ninth. 4 stars Love it or hate it, but I really liked it. The setting was interesting, although many questions are still unanswered, really curious to dive into the sequels. The memey dialogue was a plus for me, it works for some reason, and although the plot was at first a bit vague, it really picked up after essentially becoming a locked room mystery. The ending caught me off guard.
Weird Ecology: John Scalzi – The Kaiju Preservation Society(H). 5 stars If Jurassic Park was written today it might have been like this. It’s over the top, and leans into that, just making a great amusing book. Unlike something like Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy which really exaggerates its absurdity, Kaiju Preservation Society plays it straight, plants its tongue firmly in the cheek, and winks suggestively at the reader. I did like how the main character is not described and has a gender-neutral name so the reader can create their own character. I’m sad there is no series for this.
2+ authors: Aaron J. French et al. – The Gods of H.P. Lovecraft(H). 3.5 stars A nice collection of stories, each centring on one of Lovecrafts famous creations (and a few on those of his contemporaries), not all of them evenly strong, but it kept me going. Some twists here and there, but they stay quite close to the source material.
Historical: R.F. Kuang – Babel. 4.5 stars Hot diggedy damn, this was a blast. Might be my first foray into historic fantasy, and it was a blast. Tore through it in a week or so, absolutely addicting. I do like language and etymology, so this was right up my alley. Interesting magic system, the tackling of colonialism, still relevant to this day, great book. I really liked how the story unfolds, there´s some real character growth there.
Set in space: Dan Simmons – Hyperion. 3.5 stars Wow this took some pushing through. Not because I didn’t like it, but it’s rather dense, and I had some trouble with a few of the stories. The Scholar’s Tale really broke me though. Hyperion sets everything up for the sequel, definitely picking that up soon.
Standalone: Thomas Olde Heuvelt – November(H). 5 stars One of the perks of being Dutch is reading Thomas Olde Heuvelt before the rest of the world. So I was kind of hung up if this would count as SFF at first, but there is a definite supernatural threat in this story, even I fit doesn’t tick all the boxes per se. It’s set in our world, though no connections with his earlier novels appear (making it standalone as far as I’m concerned), there is pretty much no magic, and the fantasy becomes more of a mystery thriller. This man has a writing style that just wants you to keep going and going, the intensity turned to max as the pages dwindle, and the ending really caught me off guard. Could also go for mental health, but that one was already filled.
Anti-Hero: Naomi Novik – A Deadly Education(H). 2.5 stars I had some difficulty adjusting to the infodumpy writing style, it felt clunky and unsubtle. I did like the setting, really mysterious and confusing at first, and really sets stuff up for sequels. Perhaps a bit too YA for my tastes, but I might read the rest of the series later.
Book Club: William Goldman – The Princess Bride. 4.5 stars I used this card to check up on a few classics that I hadn’t read yet, this one fairly quickly topped the list. Although I must admit I haven’t watched the movie, and pretty much know the memes. Really fun read, funny and cheesy, and the interjections from Goldman were hilarious. Still haven’t watched the movie, I promise to do it soon.
Cool Weapon: Richard K. Morgan – The Steel Remains(H). 4 stars Took up this one initially because of how I saw it frequently described als bleak and grimdark, which piqued my interest. To describe it as ‘gay Abercrombie’ would be a disservice, but it definitely ticks the same boxes as Abercrombie, except the world is not as corrupt as his. I liked Gil as a main character, his sassy remarks definitely scored for me.
Revolution/Rebellion: C.l. Clark – The Unbroken: 4 stars Sometimes you just pick up something just because the synopsis interests you. It was my African square at first, but after Scarlet Odyssey I switched them, because it definitely fits hard mode. It had the same vibe as the second book of The Burning series, where a warrior gets wrapped up in the politics of the court, but this time we get more inner conflict and contrasting priorities. The action was nice, but I thought the political games were more immersing. Book 2 just came out, for sure diving in.
Name in the Title: Scott Lynch – The Lies of Locke Lamora. 5 stars Yeah, this was top of the readlist when the card first was posted, so it was a shoe-in. Exactly the stuff I love to read. Nothing more really needs to be said what hasn’t been said already. Again, snarky main characters are a plus for me.
Initials: N.K. Jemisin – The Fifth Season.. 4 stars I never read a book in second person before, and I though it would be weirder, but it wasn’t that hard to adapt to. Had to take a while to get immersed in the story, not a lot of lore is revealed at the start, but when it got going I couldn’t put it down. I did predict a twist that came later on, but was completely fooled by another one, and that really cemented me diving into the next book soon.
Published in 2022: Stephen King – Fairy Tale. 4 stars Yeah so while this has some of Kings most notorious flaws (meandering, slow at first, ending sort of rushed) I did like it. Yes, it takes quite a long time to get to the point, but what I love about King is him setting the scene and settling in the normality, only to completely screw it over when the plot kicks in. No horror and monsters here, but a real Narnia-esque fantasy story, with all the cliches of a fairy tale, but still that King twist.
Urban Fantasy: Brandon Sanderson – The Alloy of Law. 4 stars If someone told me the second Mistborn trilogy would have a sarcastic gunslinging detective as its main character I would have read this years ago. Wax reminded me of a less R-rated Gil from The Steel Remains, but not with swords. I did wonder how a detective novel would have a series created around it, while still having that satisfying solution at the end, but I should have trusted Sanderson more.
Africa: C.T. Rwizi – Scarlet Odyssey(H). 4 stars This was the final book I read for the card, was fearing I would run out of time but man, this ons took my head and plunged me right under. I like how there is not really a big climactic battle, the ending is rather subdued, but builds up tension and foreshadowing towards a plottwist that I didn’t see coming (even though I should have, The Fifth Season did the same). The African lore merged fine with the more sci-fi magic system, but I am curious to see how it develops in the next book.
Non-Human: Actus – Cleaver’s Edge(H). 2 stars Yeah, this was a hard one. I love the idea, really disliked the execution. The litRPG system took a bit of adjusting, but wasn’t really all that different from some isekai-manga I read. The low-stakes plot was fine, don’t think you should read this if you were looking for epic high fantasy, but what killed it for me was the writing. I don’t know how many times I could read ‘the tall woman’ or ‘the small woman’ as descriptors, but jeez it was a lot. Really took me out of the story. If you tell me book 2 gets better I might try it, but not soon. Also I consistently pictured Ming as Noodle from Gorillaz.
Timey Wimey: Douglas Adams – Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency. 3.5 stars I did struggle a bit for this square, mainly because I wanted hard mode, but after a lot of dragging about I just went for it, after all, I really should’ve read this sooner. I did expect some HHTTG-style shenanigans, but it never went that silly, even if it became quite silly. The plot was a bit messy at times, but it all wrapped up quite nicely.
Short Stories: Angela Carter – The Bloody Chamber and other stories(H). 2.5 stars A nice read, not too challenging, but had to admit it didn’t really stick with me and it became a rather forced read. Perhaps I should try it once more later, I did try multiple collections for this square, but none of the others really stuck the landing.
Mental Health: Sara A. Mueller – The Bone Orchard(H). 3.5 stars This was an interesting one. One of the more bizarre setting I read, but it was intriguing. Definitely came out of this with more questions than answers, but also really curious to re-read it sometime for another perspective. Part of me wants sequel, part of me says it’s fine as it is.
Self Published: Alex Hudson – The Book of Zog. 3 stars After Cleaver’s Edge I was…on edge trying another low stakes self-published novel, but this was a pleasant surprise. There were definitely higher stakes, and the twist of a kind eldritch horror was fun.
Runner Up: Marie Brennan – A Natural History Of Dragons. 4.5 stars Didn’t expect to love this as much as I did, but it turned out regency-style fantasy appeals to me. Of course, dragons also appeal to me, so perhaps I should have known. There was a nice mystery involved, I liked the breaking of the patriarchal society that Lady Trent forced upon her expedition, and the book made me curious about the sequels, we had a fun time.
BIPOC: Victor Lavalle - The Ballad Of Black Tom. 5 stars Had this on my radar for a while, was really curious to see the notorious story adapted. It was chilling, definitely didn’t lose the occult atmosphere and mystery of the original work, while twisting it in a more modern route. It was fun re-reading The Horror at Red Hook and picking out the differences.
Shapeshifters: John Gwynne – The Hunger of the Gods(H). 5 stars Best book I read last year. Totally my thing. The Northern inspired setting, the twisting POVs, the almost Marvel-y plot, epic battles, a perfect blend between imaginative and cheesy. Really looking forward towards the next instalment. I do argue that although there is a wolfshifter prominently appearing in this book, it is definitely not the most important one, that has to be Lik-Rifa.
No ifs, Ands, or Buts: Liz Braswell - As Old As Time (H). 2,5 stars Grew up on Disney, and Beauty and the Beast is still among my favourites, so this had some shoes to fill. I did like the refreshed take on the familiar story, the characters still feel like the Disney counterparts, albeit less goofy. Gaston definitely goes from bumbling macho to toxic misogynist. The ending did fall flat for me though, I was expecting a differing twist, but was let down with how it turned out. The build-up towards the ending was really interesting though.
Family Matters – Nicholas Eames – Kings Of The Wyld. 5 stars My re-read for this card, because this is one of my favourite books already. It reads like a movie, or a homebrew DnD campaign. The deliberate use and twisting of cliches is great, the references to 70s rock bands are fun to pick up on, and the main characters are so uncool they are cool again. I love stuff that owns its own silliness.

2023.03.29 21:00 tigerlillytorta I have a crush on someone else

Please don't crucify me. I haven't acted on these feelings. I love my husband more than the entire world-we have a great relationship, but i have very strong feelings for someone else who is an old family friend who I've known forever. I am NOT willing to jeopardize my marriage in any way, i will choose my husband again and again every time— but these feelings are affecting me emotionally. I want them to go away. I think about this person more than i should, and the fact that i hate parenting and motherhood sends me into these almost maladaptive day dreams where I find the idea of this other person attractive. This other person is unstable, unambitious, and nothing compared to my husband. But my feelings are still there. It's illogical-i know he could never offer me what my husband does. I feel like motherhood just makes me hate my day to day so much that i dream of an out, but obviously i don't have one, and wouldn't take one if i did 😔 i wanna try therapy but it's kinda inaccessible to me-really expensive and i already owe thousands in medical bills and my mental health coverage is even worse. Anybody know how to make these feelings go away? I already have boundaries up with this person, but it's impossible to avoid all interactions entirely.

2023.03.29 21:00 Cheetohz Reputable switch seller?

I have a few of my old and favorite mice that I want to get back on my desk. I'm looking at switches, and plan to order about 20 or so switches. I'm thinking about the D2F-01 150g variant. Most shops only sell the D2f-01F 75g variant and even then, they are out of stock. I've found a decent price on aliexpress but I don't know how much I trust the listing.

Where is everyone buying their switches?

2023.03.29 21:00 Sensitive_View_9283 A tough conversation with a friend this morning.

First off this a repost from myself that I placed in another group and multiple people suggest I also post it here. So D Day will be a year on April 24. My wife had a 4 month long EA then PA. With an old crush. We have been work in g it out and had our ups and downs, but overall we are moving in the right direction. I still struggle that maybe she hasn't told me everything and at times I'm still angry. Today I ran into a conversation that used to happen a lot but over that last year it hadn't come up. You see my wife is nice and little and pretty and when people meet her they all love her. I was always proud of her and always felt happy that I got someone so sweet and beautiful. People would always joke and asks how I landed my wife and if I had money. I don't really like my appearance. So today for the first time since DDay one of my coworkers was speaking about how he was not able to find woman that he could relate to or that shared his values. This immediately made me upset and nervous. He then said "I wish I could find someone like your wife". I tried to shrug IG off and say that no one was prefect and that ever has flaws. He just kept saying it and how she was so nice and that I was so lucky. That she is the kind of woman that would always treat me right and that I didn't have to worry about her. I almost started crying in the middle of work. He left and I went into a room by myself and broke down. I'm not good at making friends and the only friend of mine that knows about my wife's affair is my brother in-law. I live the guy, but he has the emotional range of a gold fish. It's was just so heart breaking in that moment. I feel deflated. Thanks for read just had to tell someone.
Also I didn’t make this clear in the other post. My wife has always told me to tell anyone I need to and she hat she I stood that anything negative that occurred was her fault. She has never told me to not tell anyone. My family are very bad people and I don’t not speak to them. They would be no help or comfort. I made my wife tell her mother and father and my sister and brother in law. I told the AP BW and his family and I almost in my anger told his teenage son. I didn’t involve his child because I didn’t want to be spiteful.

2023.03.29 21:00 bmorris0042 Where can I get a WinXP programming laptop.

So, we have an old Windows XP laptop that we use to connect to our machines. And while I would love to upgrade it to something current, some of the programs we use don’t have any versions compatible with anything newer than Windows XP (one of which is for Interbus, which is the main communication between 25 presses and 30 auxiliary machines). I have heard that some companies will still make one-off custom laptops running old systems. Does anyone know who does this, and how to contact them?

2023.03.29 21:00 Dillydalley31 29 week preemie kid now 4.5 - bike question

My daughter is 4.5 years old. Teeny little thing. She was born at 29 weeks and 2lbs. Now she is almost 30 haha. She is really struggling to have the muscle strength and coordination for our bike with training wheels. I was going to give her trike away but now I’m wondering if it is better for her to work and practice with that? I feel mixed because a lot of her pals are riding “big kid” bikes. I want to be encouraging to her but she’s also scared so not sure how hard to push. This is long winded question but should I keep the trike and have her practice on that? Or should this be like an ot question….?

2023.03.29 20:59 DarkoDreaming New to LDR, so confused about a lot and our relationship status and then how to take the next step? [25M and 24F]

Just here to say sorry I'm new to relationships (of any kind) and now long distance dating/relationships, so I apologise if I'm articulating things very well.
Hello, I'm a 25 year old guy from England. In very early January, I made a dating post/personal and really liked this 24 year old girl from the US. Fast-forward we're still chatting and its coming up to 4 months now. Past Valentines Day (I wrote her some genuine love letters and a cards, flowers and cute teddy bear) and her Birthday has past. Now other than not being able to cuddle her and tell her how much she means to me each day, we both have experienced loneliness from no physical contact. So sometimes it can be hard, though I'm finding more concerning our status is yet to be defined. So we text everyday and soon to go on more calls with one another (films, games, chatting etc.). She has been amazing and has been super patient with me as I've been scared of voice calls, that she wouldn't like me after one etc. So small voice messages has been helping me (after her suggestion) leading towards more time together doing those things together on voice calls and more.
But we have these days where its hard to talk and we both pull away from each other. We've talked and she said she was afraid of getting closer, adding more feelings between us and getting hurt or hurting me. Now this I hope is just natural, but with our relationship status being so undefined I'm scared one day we'll drift and lose each other just because we're both nervous and scared. So I've confronted the issue and asked what are we? dating or in a relationship? and BOTH of us are pretty confused on the matter. This I guess wouldn't be an issue, though it's on my mind a lot and makes me uncomfortable.
So if anyone has like a suitable label for our relationship or a way that maybe I could get over not having it so defined. Also any advice on how not to lose each other over feeling of fear and anxiety over the distance and loneliness we can feel. So please any advice, recommendations, opinions or perspective into anything I've covered here please feel free to share with me, thank you.

2023.03.29 20:59 Ice_wallow_come3141 What am i?

Hi, im 22 years old Male, i have a gf for like 1.5 years,
maybe because of my past, i have a pattern which after being in relationship for 1 year,
i start to feel insecure and start to depend on my gf, and get obssesed with her,
it's like from this point on, she became the most perfect woman in the world for me and i want to spend all the time with her,
i dont even want to spend time with my friends or any other people. it's like the only thing i wanna do is to be with her nonstop, this is not healthy.
and this happened to me in all of the previous relationships before,
and this thing ruining my life.
before this moment when i start to feel insecure, everything is normal,
but seems like there's always a point when it starts, and from then i get really insecure in my relationship, always seek for her approval and her attention, it's like i want to know 24/7 that she still likes me and she'll never leave me,
my attention goes for the smallest details, for example if she sends me good night with less hearts or something, i feel like something happend, like she lost feelings for me.
this is keeping my mind all the time and i can't tell her because i dont want her to think this relationship is not healthy,
how can i cope with this? what can i do to stop depending on her and leave my own life without fearing that she will leave me, how can i be that strong?

Is there any way possible to get an old Verizon number back? I have tried calling the number, it gives me the automated message that the phone has been disconnected or is no longer in service. However when I try to talk to Verizon about it I get 1,000 different answers. Is this possible? How would one go about getting a previously owned Verizon number back?

2023.03.29 20:59 Fantasy-Dragonfruit How to uncover my (ability?)

I've posted here once before but it's buried and I'm honestly too lazy to find it, haha. And sorry for the long post! I remembered so much stuff.
In the past years I haven't been myself (mental health) and my mind has felt dull. It's been a long time since I've felt a strong sense of ME. Like my individuality. And then, the other night something happened.
I've been listening to paranormal stories on Reddit as a way to ingest stories and experiences while I mindlessly play Neopets or whatever tickles my fancy. The stories are interesting because I've had vague experiences myself.
I used to get strong, intense vibes from people or places. Like my sisters old bedroom at my moms house. That room had all the bad energy. But once I moved out and my sister took over my old room, it was gone.
So the other day I listened to some stories on YouTube and didn't think much of the feelings I was getting in the previous week at night. I just assumed it was my anxiety making me paranoid. I always stop listening to stories before 8 at night as to not scare myself. 10 o clock rolled around and my fiance went to bed and I stayed up late. Just me and my cat. I had this weird feeling and the sudden thought that explained the weird feelings I had been having: something or some vibe/energy is sweeping through the house when it's late. I can almost feel it come from the second bedroom at the end of the house (trailer) and follow into the living room and then the kitchen. It seems to stop at our bedroom doorframe.
It drove me to go to bed as it was spooking me. I usually take my night medication, clean the litter box, go pee, and lay down. Not that night. It was around 2 and I went to bed and snuggled my fiance. He's snoring lightly and I'm lying awake when I feel more unnerved.
I took a deep breath and closed my eyes. I calmly breathed and envisioned lying on the bed, a light blue shape of me. In my chest was a gold spark and similar one at my forehead. Breathing deeper I collected my 'energy' to myself from where I envisioned it in the house, spots I frequented. The light blue shape filled with white gold light and I gathered more into my mind, rich gold.
Then I 'lashed out' with the gold light like a rippling aura to disperse anything that shouldn't be near me, negative or whatever.
For some reason that action made me feel the way I used to be; creative and intuitive and much more. Albeit I was immature back then so I suppose it was more refined.
It made me remember how my intuition used to ping accurately with people. How easily I could read someone. A lot of times if things were too close to me, I couldn't detect much because my desires got too involved and clouded it.
I'm still having my 'prophecy' like dreams and have strong, wracking senses of deja vu whenever they come to pass. I can never clearly remember those dreams when I wake and only remember little pieces when the deja vu hits.
I want to delve deeper into what may be. What ability might I have. I once tried an animal totem trance but nothing panned out. I know there's a million different paths and cultures with myriad meanings.
I see red-tailed hawks often when driving and always project my mental voice or speak out loud to greet them, impart my thanks and respect, and wish them good hunting. They may not be my animal spirit but I wish they were and always show them respect.
What really spurred me to post today is that I have this overall sense of well-being and happiness. Just now I had a shock of deja vu. I remember typing this out, talking to my fiance about totems maybe? and holding a lump or some sort of unidentified object. Anyway, I feel well because I had one of my rare dreams last night about Unicorns. I've always held a deep connection to myths and the unicorn has always felt so... right.
Sorry for this book of a post. If anyone takes the time to reach this end note I would love to discuss my experiences and stuff.

2023.03.29 20:59 Voidfallen-Universe That time UFO flew over, my house in Destin, Florida.

This probably happened between 2016-2017. I was in my junior of high school because we had an in-ground hot tub built into our house next to our pool. It was around maybe midnight. I wanted to go for a dip cause why not.
Well, vibing, I looked up and saw flying over me an L-shaped object silently floating over me; I just casually watched as it flew over. I just looked at it, went oh well, and went back to vibing. Justfloridathings.mp4
Now looking back at supernatural shit during my life, I try to scooby doo mystery gang shit to see whether what I witnessed was an actual encounter or some other shit, say, for instance, the time I was trapped in a time loop as a kid, likely either a hallucination based off my inability to produce melatonin and combined with OCD likely caused toddler me to relive an experience as I did (The first time I went to a real movie theater.)
So using this deductive reasoning, I look back, questioning what I saw, knocking out the first and foremost, no, it was not a hallucination; I've never had a hallucination because of any of the factors that night; the sleep meds I took didn't do it, maybe the hot tub steam but if that were the case I'd be having more encounters like this, as one I was completely lucid during this event.
Thinking about it could've been a bunch of drones carrying something, but because of how close it was and how many drones would be needed, there would be a shit ton of sound, and the way it was shaped couldn't have been a balloon as it didn't tilt despite being asymmetrical.
Looking back at the design of the craft, it looked again like an L, but what was odd other than the literal giant L floating over me was what was on the bottom of the craft, a bunch of panels that looked like they were welded to it or attached to it, I could make them out because the surface was a metallic grey like an unpainted aircraft, either this was just part of the construction, maybe anti grav motors, looking back at it with knowledge of IT tech studies maybe they were external heat sinks for the craft, or possible option three it was patchwork for the craft, maybe the aliens were welding panels over bullet holes or something, (this is Florida, even our extra-terrestrials can't have shit.)
One issue with this, however, is that were right next to Two Airforce bases; if there was ever a perfect excuse for bored Airforce pilots to go to XCOM on some greys, this would be it, so either A or it was Ayys that got the All clear, ( they wanted to go to the earthling's mall to get a new fit.) or Option B my more interesting Idea, the Airforce themselves piloted it, that or not even Aliens are immune to becoming Florida men.
Again we live right next to two Air force bases and they go and do all sorts of tests with jet craft. Back around the spring of 2019 well walking back from Taco Bell; I looked up and saw them flying a Blackbird overhead well stuff was falling from space and a bunch of Helicopters flew around. potentially the Blackbird was there in case of some debris from maybe a Nasa shuttle getting launched, and they needed a fast aircraft there to blast any large chunks to pieces {FYI, I'm not Strategists and this is me guessing,} in all likelihood it was probably just two unrelated events, of course, my reaction to seeing stuff falling from space and the Airforce doing military shit was to blast the song Transformers by Black lab, from my cellphone.)
But the reason I bring up military exercises is the possibility it was the Airforce testing a new stealth craft or hovercraft, and I was just there to witness it; maybe the metal patches were to seal holes in the hull of the craft created by AA fire And then piecing it back together from other UFOs they dropped like Pheasants or could be it wasn't alien in any way. And in all likely hood, the Airforce was running flight tests on a prototype, and that's why it looked so hodgepodge as it did; if anything, the sheer fact I haven't died of radiation poisoning from that thing flying over me means there making progress.)
As to why the military would be flying an L-shaped hovercraft, who knows with the shorter part of the L is where the person resides as the motor takes up the entire craft, or The military is planning on flying a bunch of Letter-shaped craft over our enemies in formation to write out shitposts or copypastas.

However, and I know you're saying the same thing, why would they fly a classified aircraft over a tourist town? It's quite simple it's out of season. This was in the winter months meaning all the tourists had left, and because it wasn't anywhere around, the holidays meant no snowbirds. And the greatest smoke screen of them all. This was at night in Florida; who's going to believe you saw something in the sky? Everyone out that late is either, High, drunk, or both. I wouldn't be surprised for this exact reason, Area 51 is built next to Las Vegas, or Las Vegas was built next to Area 51. Anyone who sees something will get written off as a drunk or on some shit, literally, the perfect cover-up. Who needs a Neuralyzer when the witnesses are all drinking the OG version.
I wanted to post this here cause I want to tell my tale, I'm also disappointed the Aliens didn't land, though I didn't drink at the time I had a perfectly good hot tub and a fridge full of booze and snacks.
Unrelated but suspiciously weird shit would always happen whenever I went to that taco bell from July of 2018 to May of 2019; a crack addict acting like a scared Toddler running to and from the bathroom, Pot heads busting through the door asking for night clubs, walking back I've seen a shirtless man stand up out of the grass like a 70s style zombie and one time I walked by an old obese dude with black Oil dripping from its mouth and smelling of Alcohol (Oh Fuck even the Phyrexians are getting fucked).

2023.03.29 20:57 it_wasnt_me5 Burnt out SAHM, WFH, Full Time Student

Hello everyone!
I hope you are well today. I am currently a SAHM who recently started working from home and I am a full time student. My husband works in the medical field and works long hours. We have both been incredibly stressed and don't seem to be on the same page. I am in charge of ALL of the responsibilities around the house and I work full time. My 6 year old is in school, and I work during that time.
I receive no help from my husband, and I feel undervalued and underappreciated. I have learned how to juggle everything however I don't even receive a thank you anymore. All we do is argue. I understand that his work is very physical and demanding, while mine is "only" mentally taxing. However, when I clock out, I don't really clock out because I still have to maintain the house. I have approached him in a gentle manner however I feel incredibly burnt out and frustrated. I know it is not healthy but sometimes I opt to stay quiet because voicing my concerns no longer works. My breaks during working hours are not really breaks because I take the time to prep dinner, or cleaning.
I am TIRED. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to combat the stress and perhaps how I can approach him? Thanks in advance, stay safe and be well.

Individual philosophies on AR15 weight vs functional components
Picture for attention :)
A take as old as the internet, I want to hear about your personal philosophy on your particular AR15 weight and do you balance out functionally relevant attachments and how much it weighs and does your build type (SPR, DMR etc) effect the final version?
All this is of course “go to the gym” aside that aspect should be considered a given.
I have been building this “SPR” (the 2X10) is in the other room) and it’s averaging about 11.8 pounds.
Just lookin for others thoughts and approaches.

2023.03.29 20:55 Radiant-Unit2996 The true origins of Mars as the God of war

Mars was worshipped as the God of War across multiple cultures and beliefs around the world. The Roman's a notable example.
But, who remembers the true origins behind that belief?
We are currently in the 6th iteration of civilization. That means that everything we think we've discovered or learned about our world, we knew about long ago.
In the first iteration of civilization... billions of years ago...
There was a thriving solar system filled with life...
We had our sister Earth at this point. Venus was habitable like Earth. So was Mars.
The first iteration lived as humans, venutions, Martians, and Lunars that coexisted peacefully together.
Space travel was big business back then. We had a great orbit with our Lunar sister where it was super cheap to send people back and forth.
Space travel was big, and the solar system was booming with life. Trillions upon Trillions of souls out in the solar system doing their own thing.
But as utopian as this may sound, there was disparity among the planets.
Mars was the most difficult to live on at the time. The distance from the sun made life difficult there, and so the Martians were less technologically evolved than the rest of the planets.
This meant they got to be the brunt of the joke in the lot. There used to be an old saying that if you want a vacation in hell, Mars is the place to be.
Martians weren't treated well by their neighbors. For a long time always looked at as backwards and primitive or less evolved...
That was until the greatest military leader in all of the solar systems history was born on Mars.
He learned the technology and ways of the others. He studied his enemy for decades. Living among them.
When he returned to Mars, he transformed billions of brutish Neanderthals into the most fierce fighting force the Sun has ever seen.
He struck first. On the dark side of all the planets. He struck. Simultaneously destroying and killing billions of lives without remorse.
It was he who found a way to knock the Lunar out of orbit and to collide with the Earth.
The moon is a scar and testament, and reminder of the mistake the Earth and Lunar made when they treated their Martians poorly.
This war. This war in heaven as mentioned in the Bible- this was it.
All of our wars and atrocities are like the Earth to the Sun in terms of scale. That's how horrific this war was.
And it grieved the Sun so much to see so much death... that the sun fried all the planets. Everything was wiped.
Some of these old ones did survive and escape. But they were living in other star systems at the time.
By the time this all happened, they had no home to return to.
This is the collective trauma that our solar system has kept hidden from us. Because we weren't ready to receive the truth. So symbols and myths were put in place to make it easier to understand.
At some point after the reset, the Reptilian nomadic planet Nibiru was snagged by our solar system as a stray planet.
As the planets orbit brought it closer to the inner solar system, the old Nibiru lords came. They found artifacts and traces of life that once existed, but there was little left of them.
So they seeded the planet with new life with bits of the original DNA genome of our ancient planetary ancestors that they recovered.
Now these beings were kind and benevolent, they were just reptilian. So they had a bias towards that. So we had Dinosaurs and reptiles ruling the Earth for a time, mixed with ancient DNA.
But at some point, they noticed the dinosaurs stopped evolving. They were not becoming more sentient.
So they chucked a rock at the Earth, blowing away the dinosaurs.
There's obviously way more to this story. But this is who we are. We're just a species suffering with amnesia as stuff just keeps getting older and older
We couldn't get along with our alien neighbors. We couldn't get along with our cousins the Denisovans or the Neanderthals.
Now everyone else is gone. We're all alone now. And yet we still can't get along.
If it's not because you have a tail, it's because you're black. It just never seems to end does it?
We just can't get along.
I think it's time every single one of you reading this stops and listens to your heart. Because deep down there you know what I am saying is true.

2023.03.29 20:55 kha-ci Friend disappeared since she met new BF, how to react?

English isn't my first language.
So, I recently posted about a friend - B (32) who has met a guy and, spend days and night with him for like 3 months.
She has totally disappeared since.
Before meeting this guy, she was suffering a lot for being single so, she used to ask me to go out or come to her house several times A WEEK. When guys were ghosting her I would offer to come to see her and bring dinner...ect you know, make everything I could so she could feel less alone (I was with someone at the time).
Since the first day she met him, I didn't receive any message from her. Not even one. Not even to take some news. Not even to tell me how it's going on with her BF!
Then, I realize why she doesn't have any old friend. None. Zero.
I with a third friend are her first and only friends.
I think it's because when she was 15, she met a guy and spent every single days with him and she also disappeared and didn't maintain any relationship.
I think she just feel like having a boyfriend is fine and she doesn't need anyone else.
I have absolutely no problem with that, except that I just don't want to be friend with someone like that anymore. It's not the type of friendship I am looking for anymore.
I have talked about it to the third friend (because third friend wanted to plan holidays with B) and OH surprise, I received a text message from B asking to go out for a drink 😏
I know damn well common friend told her about my feelings.
There is absolutely no drama. I am not disappointed, sad or else.
I just want to go low contact with B.
I totally accept we see friendship differently and it's fine. I just want to be surrounded by people who aren't going to come and go in and out of my life when they don't need me anymore.
How would you handle that?
Thanks a lot!!!
Edit: I am asking for the wording as I am very brutal. I am the kind of girl to just say "you aren't a good friend". How to say this more...nicely?

2023.03.29 20:55 bachelorsuperfan66 I (25F) think I might be the “other woman” in my ex(27M)‘s new relationship!

Hope all of you are well. I (25f) have been seeing my ex (27M) who I’ve been on and off with for 8 years. This person is someone who used to be very toxic in my life. I’m a trained mental health clinician now and I wouldn’t label his behaviour in the past as textbook abuse. But I have wondered if he is a narcissist. I know no one is able to make that call but I thought it was worth raising. He has been actively pursuing since early January after over two full years with no contact. There have been many signs of healing and growth. I don’t expect either of us to be the same person as we were in the early stage of our relationship because we were too young. So I’ve enjoyed our time spent together now and the way we’ve had “open communication” (or so I thought). For context, he doesn’t live here in my city anymore. And he’s been wanting to meet up in a “neutral place” every time we talk about our next meeting (which I’ve felt weird about). I know many long distance couples choose that route, but due to my demanding work schedule and him being unemployed (I know, red flag), I figured he should visit his hometown where I live and come to stay with me. I’m a great host and with the cost of accommodation and exchange rates these days, I can’t afford a vacation, let alone with somebody who I’m not dead set on. I still have a lot of love in my heart for him in some messed up way, but I’m also enjoying my new life with new people/suitors.
The reason I’ve come to the conclusion that he may be in a relationship is because last night when we were doing our nightly call, he hung up immediately and said he called by accident. I asked if he didn’t want to call anymore and he said he wants to but “can’t”. I asked why and he said his AirPods were dead. I asked why he needed his AirPods and he said because of his male roommate “sleeping” next door. I reminded him that we never talk that loudly. And he said he’s afraid his male roommate will “walk in”. There have been other times he’s randomly hung up and given weird excuses about it. I told him last night that I felt that “something is very wrong here”. He said “idk what you’re talking about”. And then sent me another text that say “what feels off?”. I said “I’m thinking about it.” But then he texted and called a bunch of times throughout the night so who really knows.
My point is: What 27 year old male would walk in to their other 27 year old male roommate’s private bedroom in the middle of the night? From what I can conclude, he lives with a girl/is married or is afraid his roommate will hear and catch him talking to me and tell whoever he’s seeing in the real world right now. I don’t know what else it could be (?).
I know I don’t have any information, but the feeling was indescribable to realize that you may part of a man’s dirty infidelity schemes. And if I have been part of that and I get any confirmation, I’m going to feel so dirty and cheap (I already do). But I also feel like I’ve taken my power back a little by just shutting him out. And it’s a huge turn off to even think of being part of his games. All he talks about is how we’re meant to be together, how he can’t wait to make a wife and mother, how he’s tired of not being with me and that I’m the only one that makes him feel this way. So I know I will never get the truth out of him. He deactivated all social media, too, so I can’t do my usual digging. At best, I feel like Meryl Streep in It’s Complicated but at worst I feel like a total moron. None of my friends or family know that he and I have been in touch as I know they wouldn’t approve so I feel really alone in this.
One of life’s biggest lessons for me lately has been realizing that you can do all kinds of self-work: like moving into your first home by yourself, getting a prestigious job title for your age and working hard at it every single day, choosing your adult friendships wisely, gaining freedom from unhealthy family systems, focusing on your fitness goals, going to therapy but you still might be weak for a really shitty guy.
Any thoughts? Anyone been in my position?
TLDR: my ex that I’ve been seeing refused to call me last night because his AirPods were dead and didn’t want his “male roommate” to “hear” or “walk in”. I think it’s a loud & clear message that I’ve gotten into something messy.

2023.03.29 20:53 405Guilty-Spark 31 [M4F] Oklahoma/Online - Chubby/nerdy dad seeking a nerdy chubby/thick woman

Hey there! Up front, I'm a 30-year-old Dad who is sexually/emotionally frustrated to say the least. My wife and I aren't as compatible as I'd like us to be and most days I find myself feeling alone, wishing I had a connection with someone else. I'd love to find someone to message throughout the day, support each other, and be flirtatious at times. I'm looking for a chubby/thick/bigger woman as that's what I'm super attracted to lol. If you're into nerdy topics that'd be a plus! But obviously not required. I don't mind your relationship status either. I'd love to have something be in person but I'd love to just talk online too.
A little about me: I'm into anything sci-fi/fantasy but I love them in them in video games/movies the most. I'm the type of person to listen to video game soundtracks as a way to relax lol. I also love Halloween a lot, I get really into it and love watching scary/horror films, even if they'll still scare me. Body wise I'm 5'8, glasses with short black hair, typical 30 year old dadbod build.
If you might be interested, feel free to message me! I'd love to know your nerdy topics or how we relate to each other.
