2023.06.06 19:04 feldrim Migrated a Python2 project to Python3 but using Python3.10, need to downgrade to Python3.6

As the title says, I forked an old tool which has not been maintained for years, migrated to Python3. On my dev and test environment Python3.10 was ready, so I fell into the trap of bad assumptions. Now, in order to have compatibility to ensure this tool runs in most common environments, I need to eliminate the features above 3.6.
What might be the most reasonable way to handle this change other than trial and error on on a new development environment with Python 3.6?
The said project: https://github.com/zbalkan/PANhunt

2023.06.06 19:03 smcadam Void Month 2 Reread

Ahoy folks. So it looks like June into July is going to be a well deserved break for Oda, and with all the big recent revelations I thought it'd be fun to do a full re-read, and see if anyone else in the community wanted to sync along.
That said, 5 or so weeks for a reread might be a discouraging pace, so perhaps 10 weeks at 100 chapters each might work better?
I'm also unsure where'd be best for reread discussion posts, I've seen manga did one years ago, but might inquire a couple of places.
Any advice on pace and place would be great, it's good to have a plan before we set off on our grand voyage!

2023.06.06 19:02 Ok_Bluebird_1032 Discover the Rich History of Mecca: Must-Visit Places in the Sacred City

Mecca, the birthplace of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and the holiest city in Islam, is a treasure trove of historical and cultural landmarks. As millions of Muslims flock to this sacred city every year for pilgrimage, it offers a unique opportunity to explore the rich history and significance of Islamic civilization. Whether you are a devout Muslim seeking spiritual enlightenment or a history enthusiast intrigued by the ancient tales, Mecca has something exceptional to offer. Here are the must-visit places that provide a glimpse into Mecca's illustrious past:

1. Masjid-Al Haram (Kaaba): Standing at the heart of Mecca, Masjid-Al Haram is the most sacred site in Islam. This grand mosque houses the Kaaba, a cube-shaped structure towards which Muslims around the world direct their prayers. Millions of pilgrims gather here each year during Hajj and Umrah, seeking spiritual purification and divine blessings. It is also the very place where Prophet Muhammad ﷺ received his first revelation, making it a site of immense historical and religious significance¹⁵.

2. Jannat Al Mualla (Al Muallaa Cemetery): Pay your respects to the family and companions of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ at Jannat Al Mualla. This cemetery holds the graves of prominent figures from Islamic history, including Prophet Muhammad's ﷺ first wife, Khadija, and his son, Qasim¹⁶. It serves as a reminder of the profound legacy left by these noble individuals.

3. Mount Arafat: Ascend Mount Arafat, the mountain where Prophet Muhammad ﷺ delivered his farewell sermon to the Muslim community during his last pilgrimage. This mountain holds great significance as pilgrims spend a day of prayer and supplication here during Hajj¹⁵. Stand in the same place where the Prophet ﷺ imparted his final teachings and reflect on the profound messages of unity, compassion, and righteousness.

4. Masjid Al-Taneem (Masjid e Aisha): Located just outside the boundaries of Mecca, Masjid Al-Taneem is where pilgrims residing in Mecca assume the state of Ihram before performing Umrah. This mosque holds historical importance as it is where Prophet Muhammad ﷺ met his wife, Aisha, after returning from the Treaty of Hudaibiyah¹⁶. Take a moment to appreciate the connection between personal stories and the larger historical events that unfolded in this holy city.

5. Maktaba Makkah-al-Mukarramah (Birthplace of Muhammad): Visit the Maktaba Makkah-al-Mukarramah, a library that marks the spot where Prophet Muhammad ﷺ was born on the 12th of Rabi ul Awwal. This historical site is within walking distance from Masjid al-Haram, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in the early life of the Prophet ﷺ¹⁶.

6. Masjid Al Nimrah: Situated in the plain of Arafat, Masjid Al Nimrah holds great significance as it is the place where Prophet Muhammad ﷺ prayed during his last pilgrimage. Pilgrims also gather here to combine the Dhuhr and Asr prayers on the day of Arafat¹. Stand in this sacred mosque and partake in the spiritual atmosphere that reverberates with devotion and humility.

7. Masjid Al-Hudaibiyah: Visit Masjid Al-Hudaibiyah, a mosque commemorating the site of the Treaty of Hudaibiyah—a peace agreement between Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and the Quraysh tribe of Mecca. It was at this very place that the Prophet ﷺ received the revelation of Surah al-Fath (The Victory)¹. Reflect on the importance of diplomacy and peaceful resolutions in Islam as you explore this historically significant site.

8. The Cave of Hira (Jabal Al-Hira): Venture to the Cave of Hira, situated on Mount Nur, where Prophet Muhammad ﷺ used to retreat for solitude and contemplation. It was within this cave that he received his first revelation from the Angel Jibreel. Take a moment to absorb the serenity of the surroundings and reflect on the profound impact of those early encounters with divine guidance¹⁵⁶.

9. The Cave of Thaur (Jabal Al-Thawr): Explore the Cave of Thaur, located on Mount Thawr, which provided refuge to Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and his companion Abu Bakr during their migration to Medina. It was within this cave that a spider's web and a pigeon's nest concealed their presence, ensuring their safety from the Quraysh. Reflect on the sacrifices made by the early Muslims and the resilience that allowed Islam to flourish¹⁶.

10. Zubaida Canal: Appreciate the engineering marvel of the Zubaida Canal, constructed by Queen Zubaida, wife of Caliph Harun al-Rashid. This canal served as a vital water source for both pilgrims and residents of Mecca for an impressive duration of 1,000 years⁶. Witness the ingenuity of past civilizations and their dedication to facilitating the spiritual journey of millions.

11. Makkah Museum: Enhance your understanding of Mecca's history, culture, and art by visiting the Makkah Museum. This captivating museum showcases a range of exhibits, galleries, and models that depict the life of Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, the development of Masjid al-Haram, the rituals of Hajj and Umrah, and the broader Islamic civilization³. Immerse yourself in the immersive displays that provide deeper insights into the significance of Mecca.

12. Exhibition of the Two Holy Mosques Architecture: Engage with the architectural wonders of Masjid al-Haram and Masjid al-Nabawi at the Exhibition of the Two Holy Mosques Architecture. Explore interactive screens, models, photos, and videos that shed light on the history, design, and significance of these two sacred mosques³. Gain a profound appreciation for the intricate details and spiritual atmosphere of these remarkable structures.

13. Jabal-e-Rehmat: Make your way to Jabal-e-Rehmat, the hill where Prophet Adam and Eve reunited after being expelled from Paradise. This site holds historical and spiritual significance as it is also where Prophet Muhammad ﷺ supplicated during his farewell pilgrimage and delivered the Farewell Sermon to the Muslims³². Reflect on the timeless teachings and guidance imparted in this sacred location.

14. Masjid Jinn: Visit Masjid Jinn, the mosque where Prophet Muhammad ﷺ recited Surah al-Jinn (The Jinn), leading to a group of jinn embracing Islam after hearing its powerful message. Witness the transformative power of the Quran and the influence it has had throughout history.

15. Bilal bin Rabah Mosque: Honor Bilal bin Rabah, one of the earliest converts to Islam and the first muezzin (caller to prayer) in Islam, at the Bilal bin Rabah Mosque. This mosque pays tribute to the noble contributions of Bilal and serves as a reminder of the diverse individuals who played a pivotal role in the early spread of Islam.

16. Mount Abu Qubais: Explore Mount Abu Qubais, believed to be the first mountain created by Allah. This sacred location is associated with various miracles performed by Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, including the splitting of the moon and bringing forth water from a rock. Marvel at the signs of divine intervention and contemplate the power and majesty of Allah.

17. Masjid Al Khayf: Located in Mina, Masjid Al Khayf is a mosque where Prophet Muhammad ﷺ and many other prophets prayed. This mosque holds historical and spiritual significance, particularly during the three days of Tashreeq in Hajj. Experience the collective devotion and unity as pilgrims gather in this sacred space.

Mecca, with its profound religious and historical heritage, offers an extraordinary journey through time and faith. From the iconic Masjid-Al Haram to the serene caves that once provided sanctuary, each site tells a unique story of devotion, sacrifice, and spiritual enlightenment. As you explore these sacred places, allow yourself to be immersed in the profound spirituality and the rich tapestry of Mecca's history.

Plan your visit to Mecca and embark on a soul-stirring pilgrimage that will leave an indelible mark on your heart and mind. Immerse yourself in the vibrant culture, timeless traditions, and spiritual significance that make Mecca a truly extraordinary destination.

2023.06.06 19:00 BillyRay5150 Did we have a ghost?

So a few years back we had a "paranormal" occurrence in our home. I say "paranormal" in quotes because I am not thoroughly convinced that's what it was, though I will say I am not 100% ruling it out either...let's see what you all think.
It all started with the silverware. For whatever reason we would only have like 2 or 3 forks (or sometimes none) in the drawer at any given time. They weren't in the sink or the dishwasher...just gone. Then they would all mysteriously re-appear in the drawer. Then it would be spoons that would disappear, then re-appear. My wife joked (at first at least) that "the ghost took them". I chalked it up to having three kids in the house, but even when we checked their rooms for wayward untensils, we never found any. It got to the point that we had to break out a spare set of silverware to augment what we had in the drawer, but it still continued.
Then the whisk disappeared (not something that the kids would take to their room) fro several weeks. We all searched the entire kitchen...drawers, cabinets, etc. to no avail. My wife eventually bought another one and then, one day, there it was in it's usual drawer...right on top, like it had never gone missing.
Then there was Lego Captain America. My youngest was maybe 5 at the time and lost the head from his Lego Captain America mini-figure. Kids lose stuff all the time, especially tiny parts, but he was beside himself and I tore his room apart, as well as the living room sectional couch (which seems to devour every lost item in our house). I went so far as taking the backing off of it and turning it upside down. I found all kinds of stuff...but no Lego head (and no silverware incidentally). I gave it up as a lost cause. Then one day, months later, I walked into my son's room to put away some laundry and there, smack dab in the middle of his floor was Captain America's head. No explanation, no one had found it and put it there. Trust me, it was a big enough deal in my house that if someone had found it, they would have said so. I think we even offered a $5.00 reward to whoever found it.
Anyway, this is all minor stuff that could very easily be explained away and I didn't really pay it a whole lot of mind (though TBH, the Captain America head had me a little stumped) but my wife and daughter were convinced we had a ghost and talked about it all the time!
Then things got a little weirder when my youngest swore up and down that he saw the reflection of a man walk behind him in the TV and the glass of some artwork we have hanging on the wall to either side of it. Still, he was 5 or 6 at the time...so you know, I didn't take it all that seriously.
Then came the culmination of our "paranormal" activity. My daughter had a friend sleeping over and she, her friend, and my wife were on our back patio discussing the "ghost". I was asleep at the time as I had work early in the morning, when I was awoken by blood curdling shrieks from downstairs! I ran down, grabbing the ax handle that I keep behind the bedroom door, not knowing what to expect but fearing the worst. What I found was my wife, daughter, and my daughter's friend running around our kitchen in hysterics and a completely shattered glass patio door.
So, as my wife and daughter tell it, they were on the patio discussing the "ghost" and the disappearing silverware, Captain America, reflections, etc. My wife was saying something about reading where ghosts only have power if you believe in them (or something to that affect) and that she wasn't going to believe we had a ghost anymore and when she said "I don't believe in ghosts!" the patio door immediately shattered the instant the words left her mouth!
My wife has a friend who is into the paranormal and ghost hunting and all that stuff and she put her in touch with a Native American "shaman" and his son who came to the house did whatever it is they do to get rid of spirits...smudge or whatever. I really don't know what all he did as I was at work during the ritual. All I know is, whatever he did, it seems to have worked. We haven't had any weird stuff happen since.
So I'm not saying I believe or disbelieve, but that is a lot of weird stuff. My wife and daughter are still convinced we had a ghost. Me, I'm not sure. What do you all think? Did we have a ghost?

2023.06.06 19:00 NoPause_2021 Guilt is killing me

My ex ruined my financial balance and has left me shouldering a load that is typically carried by two. I am always waiting for child support that never arrives or paying my lawyer to pursue what should be paid. He gets away with everything despite living a lavish lifestyle funded by his wealthy parents. You would think grandparents would want to help support the needs of their grand children, but nope. I feel trapped underneath a mountain of responsibilities that never allow me to do anything. The guilt of leaving my kids in the evening to do something just for myself is crushing and the cost of hiring a babysitter and getting out of the house for adult interaction is not as easy as it sounds.
Parenting solo is hard. There are lots of gray areas and the game changes daily as my boys grow. For married parents, there’s at least another adult to talk things out with and to share the burden of making tough decisions. I bear the weight of all of those tough calls alone and the emotional burden has worn me down.
I constantly feel guilt about the financial things I can’t provide and guilt about the things I just can’t do because of my situation. I worry daily about the effects of being raised by a single mother is having on my kids. I’m feeling lonely and lost.

2023.06.06 18:58 FrenzyGloop It's been a while

-Since I've touched this subreddit. I've also been playing TC2 on and off now for a while since then too, finding myself sometimes playing great and sometimes looking like a level 10 on the bottom of the scoreboard.. But I've also been rethinking about the game in new light without the grudge of Krystal false banning me for a year and honestly despite the sh!t's I've been throwing at the game and the devs since whenever they started nerfing every single weapons- I find TC2 still really fun.
Now onto a rather more negative question for you guys since I haven't caught up with the subreddit: What's your controversial take about TC2 in general? Or.. What personal agenda do you have against something in the game? (in general)
Me? I have a lil' thingy for people who plays medic and boast about their grand 121 points. More specifically on Badwater. Red team of course, they have the perfect choke and sightline for snipers, combined with some medics hiding in the corner where Green can't even reach? Makes for quite a frustrating game. I mean medic is pretty easy to play if you hide behind the team so if you boast about that- I'd love to see you constantly dying before rage switching to other power class once the map switches to Harvest where medics have absolutely nowhere to hide and everyone has their line of sight on you.

2023.06.06 18:55 alebau tenant rights in mn?

(i live in MN) i have been without AC for about a month. unfortunately, MN has had an awful spring filled with extremely hot weather, so my apartment manager originally said that because of the fluctuating temperature, ie being freezing one day, and a sauna the next, they weren’t able to turn the AC on. that was about a month ago, and they stated they turned it on sense. however, almost half of the units are without AC right now. they gave us all portable AC units which to no avail, are not helping at all. It’s also a loft style so we have floor to ceiling windows filling the apartment that cannot open, so it’s extremely stagnant, hot air. they said repairs were supposed to be done today but now they’re pushing them back further.
it fluctuates between 85 and 95° in my apartment and I have two dogs, so it’s very concerning how hot it is getting. I did file a complaint with the city and my neighbors did as well but none of us have heard back. It’s getting to the point where I’m gonna have to stay at a hotel, because of how hot it is in the apartment.
I really love where I live and don’t want to move out but I don’t know how much longer I can deal with the hot air. I tried googling tenant rights for Minneapolis/Minnesota, but it just came back with a lot of info on how to file complaints.
any advice?

2023.06.06 18:52 InsaneGunChemist Messenger Angels

A/N: it has been a while, so have two updates! Please let me know if y'all do still want more!
The void burns with the flaming of forges, as the anvils of war begin to beat their bloody tempo once more. The angels, humanity, rallies their forces, readying for a conflict to shake the galaxy. Wrath and ruin guide their hands, for those that are unable to wield those tools themselves. Armor is painted in black and white, for those who will bear the sin of their actions, and those who shall remain pure and clean. Ships are readied, stockpiles built, as entire planets are given over to recieve the inevitable refugees, to house and heal those that have no home, no hope, and no life. And Humanity swears to all that they will bring these to the darkest parts of the void.
A single human Matriarch stands before the Conclave, proud, steady, and a look of disdain written across her face. The reigning members of the Conclave look positively upon this, for it shows the Humans are everything they were promised to be. They show their wisdom and patience by sending a matriarch, their fierceness by ensuring she does not flinch, and their understanding of the balance of power, by sending only a pair of escorts. The only confusion they felt, was the look of hatred burning deep in her eyes, or that she did not bow.
A few moments pass, silence creeping through the gilded chamber, the wealth of a thousand worlds on display for the eight sapients in the room. Finally, the Human steps forwards, her jaw flexing as her eyes flicker across the members, before settling finally upon the Kel'gan warlord. "My name is Sonia Brown. I shall be speaking on behalf of Humanity for this, our first meeting." Her brown eyes simmer slightly, as the Hreth representative stands, spreading his many arms wide.
"We are pleased to welcome your people to our Conclave, and are eager to discuss how we can all grow, and prosper today. My friends from the Qurrelm tell me you already bring new technology that shall allow us to spread our reach even farther! My friends from the Kel'gan are most eager to see, and train, alongside your soldiers. My own people are eager to see what new deals we can make, and how we both can profit, and grow richer. The other members of our Conclave have their own desires, be they for planets, or new tastes." He nods to other delegates, unnerved by the fact that her eyes never stray from his own, even as he tries to introduce the other members. "Where would you like to begin? Perhaps trade? Or maybe borders? We are happy to start at the standard 100 lightyear radius around your homeworld, and any overlap can be compensated?"
She steps forwards slowly, approaching the seat at the table waiting for her, before pushing it aside. "I am afraid there has been a misunderstanding. Humanity will not be joining your Conclave. In fact, we find your entire system repulsive. No, I am here to issue to you all a declaration of war, on behalf of Humanity. Our only exception, is to offer a choice to the Kel'gan. You may abstain from the war, and we shall negotiate independently, as we find your practices mostly acceptable. For the others of you...I bring a gift, before all is lost to hostility." A flick of her wrist uploads a datafeed to the central projector, as multiple videos begin to play. Across a dozen systems, human ships are ripping into reality, close at hand to Conclave vessels, and in moments, are firing upon them. This passes in silence, the members if the Conclave too stunned to speak. None had ever opposed them. It had been centuries since a ship had been lost. In seconds, they witness the loss of dozens of ships, all caught unprepared, weapons not readied, shields lowered. The Human smiles slightly, the hatred burning brighter in her eyes now. "You see? We wanted to give you the gift of knowledge. Of forewarning. Unless some things change, we will continue this, until one of us is broken." She is still smiling as the light leaves her eyes minutes later, the third Human casualty in the war against the darkness, and surrounded by a sea of corpses, and her name becomes a rallying cry for Billions.
"This conflict is pointless. It does not bring new flavors to our tables, or food to our warehouses. The Humans are worthless for eating, too tough, and flavorless. We request a chance to negotiate, as our reserves cannot support a mass Kel'gan deployment. In fact, I have only had 8 meals this past cycle. We must see this ended, and soon." Bloqniqus The Grand, Visnarlo Representative to the Conclave.

2023.06.06 18:51 loulouana 00s SUV as a first car?

Hey folks, I’m currently taking my driving lessons and it’s time to think about my first vehicle. I’m european, I live in a small town (not the best roads), and my ideal budget is under 8k$. I need a used car perfect for both everyday stuff and road trips/fishing trips/off-road rides. Also, I would like to have something reliable that could last me at least 2-5 years without major issues. Would be ideal if the car had like less than 200k mileage
I really like crossovers/SUVs like Suzuki Grand Vitara, RAV4, or Outlander, there are a lot of them available in my area (all 2006-2010 models). There’s also a really well maintained Dodge Journey 2008 on the market in my town rn, but it looks too big for a newbie driver.
I’m open to other suggestions as well. Help!

2023.06.06 18:42 SarkastiCat [Eurovision] [Pre-selections for Eurovision] UnPolished pre-selections

Eurovision Song Contest is an international competition that has been running annually since 1956. It's a massive event as a total of 52 countries participated in Eurovision and it's a fun event. Everybody has their own reason for watching it from supporting their own country, celebrating different cultures, enjoying music to appreciating Dustin the Turkey.
You don't need to know details on how voting works or how Eurovision works as we are going to focus on something else. Specifically, the process of choosing the performer. Some countries have a committee that picks a willing performed and some host a competition.
The size and length of the competition differ in each country as every country has their own budget. You can either have Swedish Melodifestivalen or Polish Tu Bije Serce Europy! Wybieramy hit na Eurowizję!. Today, we are going to focus on Poland's history of pre-selections and the latest drama.
Important information.
The post is a bit unique due to the nature of the sources. It's recommended to listen to music videos from 2023 with headphones and without them to get the full experience. There will be mentions of gossip and conspiracies, so wearing a tin foil hat is recommended. Almost all sources are in Polish and they were translated by me. I'm not a professional translator and so I am prone to making mistakes. After a while, this post is going to be edited to include a link to a comment explaining the translation process. Some sources have comments sections and you may encounter triggering content.

Holding onto memories - The history of Poland in Eurovision

Poland debuted in 1994 with "To nie ja" by Edyta Górniak, who was sent by a Polish tv broadcaster known as TVP. The song almost got disqualified, but it wasn't and Górniak got 2nd place for Poland. It was the first time, when Poland was in the top 3 and also currently the last one.
Then there were 5 years of being outside the top 10, which resulted in Poland withdrawing from Eurovision 2000. Poland returned for the 2001 edition, but Piasek's bad performance resulted in Poland withdrawing again.
Then in 2003, Ich Troje with "Keine Grenzen - Żadnych Granic" finally breaks the unlucky strike as they manage to get 7th place. Unfortunately, the unlucky strike comes back. Blue Cafe only manages to get 17th place. Next years are similarly bad. 2 years of not qualifying for the final, 24th place and 3 years of not qualifying. One of the representatives that didn't qualify was Ich Troje, who came back with "Follow my heart".
Poland withdrew again for 2 years, partially due to hosting UEFA Euro with Ukraine. The return of Poland in 2014 was controversial as "My słowianie" by Donatan & Cleo was chosen. The song is basically about how Slavic girls are the best wives as they know how to use body language. It divided Polish viewers. Some treated it as a fun satire of Polish stereotypes (hypersexual girls, poor old-fashioned country, etc.), while others had issues with the song spreading these stereotypes and the sexual nature of the music video. According to one of the biggest Polish newspapers, Britain described the song as a typical weird Eurovision song and they thought it was about bread. Sweden threw sexism allegations, while Germany described the music video as softcore porn.
It also started a discussion about Eurovision and how it's viewed by others. The same newspaper described Polish viewers treating participation in Eurovision as a matter of national pride and how the scale of emotions is similar to a schizophrenic patient running from one end of the room to another. Even when the quality of competition can be questionable.
Donatan&Cleo got 14th place and Poland didn't withdraw. It was probably a good decision as Michał Szpak with his song "Colour of Life" got 8th place in 2016. There were two controversies surrounding Szpak. One of them was a difference between televotes and judges' votes, but the controversy was quickly forgotten. Another controversy is related to TVP, but I will cover it later.
Then Poland got 22nd place and it had 3 songs not qualifying for a final in the row, again. The third song that didn't qualify was "The Ride" by RAFAŁ, which became a meme due to a horrible live performance. It was so bad that many Polish viewers wanted RAFAŁ to not qualify for finals.
The unlucky strike got interrupted by "River" by Ochman, who managed to get 12th place. The live performance became meme due to cheap special effects.

I ain't done yet - Everything about TVP

TVP (Telewizja Polska S.A) is one of the oldest TV broadcasters in Poland and also a controversial one. If you say "politics" and "TVP" in one sentence, you are legally allowed to change your name to Pandora. But you can't escape from TVP, especially if you are interested in music competitions for newcomers. They are associated with one of the biggest music festivals in Poland (Opole Festival) and run three different editions of The Voice (Of Poland, Kids and Senior). Other TV broadcasters don't offer too much. Polsat keeps changing trying different formats and the last music competition was in 2020. TVN has only Got Talent.
Going back to Eurovision, TVP is responsible for anything related to Eurovision. Depending on the year, you may expect either an internal selection carried or a competition. Both of them have their own unique reputation due to many reasons.
The most controversial entry from an internal selection is The Ride from 2021. At that time, most people expected to see Alicja with her song "Empires". Alicja won Szansa na Sukces (a music competition, where singers get a chance to perform somewhere) and she was supposed to participate in Eurovision 2020, but it got cancelled due to covid. Most countries decided to send their 2020 representative, so expectations weren't unreasonable. Yet, TVP decided to do something else and Poland ended up getting multiple memes about RAFAŁ instead of the sweet victory.
However, this doesn't mean that music competitions are without flaws. Some people in TVP wanted to remove Michał Szpak from the competition due to being worried about him potentially winning, but the director Radek Kobiałko and other people organising the competition 2016 decided to stand up against it. The reason behind it is unclear, but Michał Szpak used to be controversial due to his androgynous looks and presentation.
Then there were some minor issues with the first edition Tu Bije Serce Europy!, which were brought up one year later due to the 2023 drama. Some viewers have noticed that one song "Paranoia" by Daria has been promoted by TVP. Daria performed her song before the show. She performed at New Year's Eve's Music Festival by TVP and somebody could say that was TVP's conspiracy to secure Daria's televotes victory. However, Ochman won and some say it was due to the voting consisting of two rounds.
This leads us to 26th February 2023 and the latest drama. Grab your popcorn as we are going back to the past and I am going to serve as your host.

Welcome to the party - The show

It's 17:30 and you are watching TVP 1. The show begins and so it's time to explain to you how the show works.
Tu bije serce Europy! Wybieramy hit na Eurowizję! 2023 works similarly to the previous edition. Every performed could send one song and that song had to meet standard requirements for Eurovision. Specific requirements are under point 6 and other rules, can be read here. Around 300 songs were sent to TVP and only 10 of them could make it to the show.
Each judge has 100 points and they have to judge each contestant... That's how I would explain rules if they weren't changed 4 days before the competition. It was a fully legal move from TVP as rule 39 specifies that TVP has the power to change rules. The explanation was given by TVP and rules were changed to be closer to those in Eurovision.
Now each judge gives points (12, 10, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1) to contestants. Points are then added together and the contestant with the highest total gets 12 points. The next person gets 10 points, etc. Viewers can still vote and they are still as important as judges. Voting works the same, except viewers don't give points.
Without further ado, let's meet the judges and the contestants.
The judges
The contestants
At this point, you may probably see 3 things that were pointed out by fans and the media. The most obvious one is a lack of songs in Polish. Feliver's song only has one Polish segment and that's it. It has been a point of competition criticism, but it isn't anything abnormal. Poland has sent multiple entries in English and even English & Spanish before.
Another thing that can be noticed is the fact that only Ahlena and Jann don't have ties to TVP. Many contestants have performed for TVP at one point and many of them performed a couple of months before the competition. In the case of Yan Majewski and Blanka, you could see them on TVP a couple of days before the competition.
The third thing would be the quality of the show. While not all videos come directly from TVP, the quality doesn't differ that much from what you would see on TV. Journalists and fans openly talked about their ears bleeding thanks to some performances. There were even jokes about the quality of special effects and anything related to visuals. At this point, Poland's special effects are a meme and you can find videos depicting how the performance of (Insert Eurovision 2023 contestant) would look like if they represented Poland. What doesn't help is the fact that recordings from the audience and journalists tend to have better audio.
From things that you could only see by watching the full show, all contestants got at least one round of applause from the public. The craziest applause was for Jann before and after his performance. The beginning of his introduction could be barely heard and even hosts acknowledged the madness after his performance.
Now let's reveal results. During the show, Edyta Górniak was responsible for revealing results.
Name Score
Blanka 12
Dominik Dudek 10
Felivers 8
Jann 7
Natasza 6
Alicja 5
Yan Majewski 4
Kuba Szmajkowski 3
Maja Hyży 2
Ahlena 1
This didn't sit well with the public. When Jann's score was revealed, many people started booing. It was so loud that Edyta Górniak had to ask whoever was giving her score to repeat themselves and you could hear it on TV.
There was also another moment of booing and screaming "EDYTA" after the results were revealed. Then it changed to screaming "USTAWKA" (set-up) and one of the hosts had to calm down the public again. Performances of the contestants were replayed and you can guess what happened when Jann's performance was shown. The crowd went for applause this time and became quiet during Blanka's performance.
This brings us to televoting. Rules changed again and now you can send up to 20 SMS from one SIM card. The cost of one SMS is 3.69 zł, which was the equivalent of $0.83 (US), £0.69 or €0.78. The total number of votes is unknown.
So now let's reveal the final score and the televote scores.

Name Total Score Televote Score
Blanka 22 10
Jann 19 12
Dominik Dudek 18 8
Felivers 14 6
Yan Majewski 11 7
Alicja 10 5
Natasza 8 2
Kuba Szmajkowski 6 3
Maja Hyży 6 4
Ahlena 2 1
Originally, TVP didn't reveal televote scores and viewers only had the total score. The televote ranking has been released by TVP one day later. Number of televotes is still not confirmed. According to one source, TVP has received over 35000 votes. There is also gossip that Jann has received 18000 votes, while Blanka has received only 6000.
But even without specifics, the audience was lukewarm. When 2nd place and 1st place were about to be revealed, the audience was cheering for Jann. When Blanka was revealed, the audience lost its energy. There were some cheers instead of booing, but they weren't too loud.

They mad - Initial reactions

While Blanka's show didn't end with booing, celebrities and social media exploded.
The celebrities' side had reactions ranging from strongly negative to neutral. Ralph Kamiński was openly supporting Jann and even promoted him. He also criticised the format of the show and how only viewers should decide whom to send to Eurovision. He called the situation a "SCANDAL!" and "SHAME!!!".
Michał Szpak was supporting Jann. When the results were revealed, he supposedly end up laughing and swearing on Instagram. During one of his interviews, he openly states that he is in Team Jann but he will be still supporting Blanka. He also added there will be lots of work for Blanka, but he is still hopeful and the song itself is catchy. Maja Hyży, Kuba Szmajkowski, Doda and Roxie Węgiel (Eurovision Junior 2018 winner) share similar views. Their interviews can be reduced to how they were cheering for Jann or another contestant, but it doesn't mean that they will not support Blanka. Then there is a small talk about how she doesn't deserve hate or how her song is catchy.
When ask about songs and singing abilities, Agnieszka Hekiert end up praising Jann's vocal abilities and only said that Blanka's song is a well-produced pop piece. Similarly, Ochman avoided answering a more direct question "Does Blanka sing nicely?".
Another celebrity worth mentioning is Ramona Rey. She also preferred Jann and she was the first celebrity to call out the lack of clarity from TVP regarding how songs for the show were selected. She also called out the lack of Polish songs and mentioned how her rejected song predicted the future.
Even those supporting other contestants had a negative reaction to Blanka. Sandra Kubicka was supporting and promoting Dominik Dudek due to him "singing, playing the guitar, composing and writing his own songs". Her reaction to Blanka was calling her song "disco polo". Disco polo has a similar reputation to modern pop. Some love it and some consider it low-quality music.
Social media was less kind than celebrities. People were either attacking Blanka or TVP. Every tiny move of judges and contestants was analysed. Some even dug through the social media of contestants to make their point about how somebody deserves or doesn't deserve to represent Poland. At that time, you could easily encounter homophobia, racism and conspiracy theories.
Media obviously decided to produce multiple articles about this situation and every website presented something different. It's hard to say if they media the situation worse or better as multiple things have been happening at the same time.
People were divided. For some, Blanka was a twin sister of Ariana Grande that didn't show anything special. That's from one article and from there comments kept getting worse or better. Blanka was either considered a shallow rich girl with a generic song or a singer making others smile with her summer vibes. On another hand, Jann was a talented underdog who was too controversial for TVP or a copy of Måneskin that was singing out of tune.
TVP and others also got lots of comments. Some openly stated that they would be fine with Jann losing, if TVP decided to send either Dominik Dudek or Alicja. Others mentioned the political situation in Poland and how TVP perfectly shows corruption in Poland. One of the things that got pointed out was Blanka having a contract with Warner Music Poland and how TVP could earn money by having Blanka work for them.
Similar theories were slowly popping out and they were discussed by fans. So quickly fix your tin foil hats as we will be moving to the next sections.

Dance along with me - Egurrola's involvement

One of the most popular theories was how judges were voting for Blanka due to personal reasons. Agustin Egurolla and Edyta Górniak were the main focus of these theories.
To start with Egurrola, you can't run away with him as he is always doing something associated with dancing. He either sends his dancers or creates choreographies for multiple shows. Egurolla was supposedly working with Blanka for NYE 2022 music festival and his dancers performed with her for Tu Bije Serce Europy!. There were implications of potential bias and some people pushed this theory further. Supposedly, Egurrola didn't want Jann as Jann wouldn't agree to perform with his dancers and Egurolla wouldn't make money. The extra bit of this theory is based on the fact that Jann created his own choreography and performed without dancers.
Egurolla's controversy got worse thanks to his co-worker, Michał Piróg. Piróg published on his Instagram a picture of him with Egurrola and judges from You Can Dance - Nowa Generacja. In his description he wrote:
"I always sat behind the table and waited for something that would suprise me and enchant me, but there were those who asked beforehand "Who should be the best?"...."
This was later followed up by his comment, which appears to be deleted. Fortunately, the media saved it.
"The chairman, the second man on the picture, the man of the internal businness. Call it as you like"
The post was published a couple of days after the show and most people interpret it as a criticism of what happened in Tu Bije Serce Europy! and the implication that Egurrola had something to do with Blanka's victory.
In the end, the drama surrounding Egurrola died after a reveal that he will not work on Blanka's choreography for Eurovision.

Everybody has somebody - Involvement of Górniak's family

In the case of Górniak, there were multiple dramas surrounding her and her son. They lived for longer than Egurrola's drama due to Edyta's multiple responses and the fact that she was a chairwoman of judges.
Allan Krupa is Edyta's son and he is known as Enso. Most articles refer to him using his real name and so I am going to use it to be more or less consistent.
Going back to the main topic, it has been noticed that Allan was sitting next to Blanka during the competition and one picture was enough to start drama. People quickly started calling Blanka his friend or even lover. However, the first theory that Blanka is his friend became more popular due to Allan already dating somebody.
Allan quickly reacted to negative comments as some people were also attacking his girlfriends. He explained that he didn't even know there were pre-selections and he knew about them after his mother called him a day before. He didn't know other contestants, except for Felivers. He thought that Blanka was just a dancer and she asked him if she can sit next to him.
This wasn't the end as Allan went on some angry rants. Some phrases can't be directly translated without losing their original meaning, so I've tried my best to localise some bits. Check this comment for more information.
"People are writing to me - as if I had a f^^^ing connection to Eurovision - you are re^^^^ed or you are f^^^ing something else"
There was also another rant where he called people NPCs and how they make sh^t on the internet like animals for attention. He ends his rant saying that he understands that pre-selections are a situation of life or death and there is slaughter, when somebody doesn't win.
His story of not knowing Blanka was considered as weird. If it was true, then why Blanka had to search for a seat? Some questioned the legitimacy of this story as Allan has performed at NYE Music Festival 2022 like Blanka and he could theoreotically meet her there.
Allan was later defended by Edyta. He also posted some memes about how he manipulated pre-selections and Eurovision.

You do you and I do me - Edyta's involvement

Just after Blanka's victory, Górniak has been interviewed. She started her interviews by saying that Blanka was chosen by judges and also viewers, when she was expecting to see a change. She then went on a talk about how she thinks that viewers chose Blanka as they need something sunny and international. Also, how people lack something optimistic after all these dramas in their lives.
She then started describing Jann. She described him as demonic, but characteristic and full of charisma. The use of the word "demonic" became controversial and a meme due to being peculiar. What makes the situation worse is the reputation of Edyta when it comes to spirituality. As I've previously mentioned, Górniak is open about her beliefs and she even talked about bad energies, including how Halloween is bad. Funnily, Jann and somebody from his environment knew about this line and even made a joke about his salt necklace and potential exorcism.
To add salt to this situation, a recording from Dobry wieczór Europo! caught Górniak looking away and staring at the ceiling during the performance of Jann.
The day after the show, Edyta wrote a comment on her Instagram post saying that if anybody sees issues with the clarity, they should report them to the producer of the show.
There was also a small misunderstanding of rules from Edyta's side as she said that if people really wanted Jann to win, he would have won as televotes are responsible for 50% of the total score. But according to her, there were probably not enough votes sent to him.
To clarify, Jann got the maximum possible amount of points from viewers and it's unlikely that getting more votes would change anything. So either Górniak was confused by how scores work or she didn't know that Jann has won televote.
Small bits like that started accumulating and started creating a weird picture. During one of the interviews, Edyta stated that judges were questioning a bit if they should vote together or separately. At the end they shared each other's views while hiding their notes and voted separately.
The weirdest thing was the timeline of events presented by Edyta. According to her, votes were collected right away and judges didn't have time to further discuss them. Votes were counted while she was preparing for her guest performance during the ad break. However, later she stated that judges gave their voting cards when she was going to the stage to perform. What doesn't click here is the fact that Górniak was performing after the ad break.
This either means that votes were collected twice (before and after the ad break) or Górniak misremembered the timeline of events. This added fuel to the fire and people kept asking for voting cards. Górniak responded to that stating that she wouldn't have issues with her voting card being revealed. She also revealed that she was receiving results through her earpiece. It had a mixed reaction as TVP didn't reveal anything specific about voting cards and the bit about the earpiece fuelled the theory that somebody was manipulating behind the scenes.
The whole drama with Edyta Górniak was closed by her final comments. In one of the deleted comments she openly said that she is getting hatred for just reading results and some hatred is coming from people due to her being an easier target than the institution. Then there were two comments that you just have to read:
"Regarding the project Eurovision, I've lost my trust to everybody. Even if the rules were about to be change and fixed, I will never go back to this topic. I've seen what was happening last year, I have also seen what people were doing when Rafał was sent to Eurovision. And now the same thing is happening. I feel like a shield that was borrowed by somebody and put at the front of doors. This topic is closed for me."
The other comment:
"I am sure that time will tell and respond to all doubts. [...] I recommend to remember that despite of me being an influential person, I am not a boss of bosses and I can't do everything. [...] I will pray for justice"

You are about to know - Other dramas

So before we talk about Blanka herself, there are some small things worth mentioning. They are mostly based on gossip and they didn't live too long.
According to one of the theories, TVP was setting up MaRina as Poland's representative. She supposedly had to just send her song and everything would be set up. But after her performance at NYE Music Festival 2022, she supposedly withdrew.
From the same source, there is a gossip that one judge had issues with Jann's costume and choreography They supposedly found his costume as too inappropriate and too controversial. His choreography supposedly had some errors. These factors together supposedly created an impression on this judge that Jann would struggle to get points at Eurovision.
Another drama was caused by the release date of the article about Blanka's victory. The article was supposedly released around 2 hours before the competition and some people supposedly have seen it before Blanka's victory was revealed. However, there is no evidence of that and TVP explained the issue with the time of the article. The article supposedly saved the date of creation of the article instead of the release or final edit. The article was created early to publish results as fast as possible and it didn't contain names of contestants.
The final thing worth mentioning is an article talking about how pre-selections in Moldova and Serbia were better than Polish pre-selection. Moldova showed the individual votes of judges and amount of votes sent by viewers, while Serbia released voting cards. Even Lithuania and Latvia were praised.
The cherry on top is a depiction of how much Germany's ranking would change if they followed the rules of Polish pre-selections. Lord of the Lost would get a second, while Will Church (the winner of the judge's voting) would win instead.
This is similar to one theory that the previous representative of Poland, Ochman wouldn't win if the competition followed new rules. This cemented an impression that rules were changed to set up a winner.

It's kinda crazy - Blanka

Since results the reveal of the results, Blanka had to deal with multiple comments and memes. Depending on whom you ask, their perception of Blanka will vary. For some, she became "Bejba" due to her pronunciation of "Babe" and multiple memes. Bejba became viral and Ochman joined the trend. Even Blanka herself embraced the meme by wearing a dress with the text "Bejba". She explained her decision by stating that everybody now calls her bejba.
For some, she became a symbol of everything wrong with TVP and people started searching for evidence of corruption or Blanka being evil.
Somebody pointed out that Blanka's mother was working for TVP as a make-up artist for some shows. But it's possible that she was working for a company that happened to work for TVP and other tv broadcasters. For some, it was treated as evidence that Blanka has direct connections to TVP and there could be some bias.
Then there was another controversy regarding Blanka's social media. She supposedly liked comments that were saying that Jann is from the margin of society, which was interpreted as a classist remark or queerphobia. Just in case, Jann didn't say anything about being LGBTQ+ and only his appearance is relatively androgynous. Going back to the topic, some people defended Blanka stating that she could miss this bit as the comment starts as rather supportive. Some questioned the validity of it as Blanka's relationship with Jann appears to be positive. Blanka complimented Jann, while Jann was one of the first people to cheer her up after the competition and even defended her.
Another controversy was plagiarism. Specifically, there were allegations that Blanka either copied Clean Bandit's Solo or INNA's Up. These allegations remained allegations and that was their end.
The final controversy surrounding Blanka was a petition for Blanka's removal. There were two petitions and one of them has 91170 signatures. People wanted transparency from TVP and to see Jann perform in Eurovision. Blanka reacted to the petition and she was hurt by it.

Never back down - Eurovision

This year, Eurovision was divided into two parts. There were two semi-finals and one final. During the semi-finals, only viewers could vote.
Blanka performed in the second semi-final without massive issues and got 124 points. As a result, she got 3rd place in the second semi-final. It was a gigantic success and she beat the previous representative of Poland. Details can be found on Eurovision website.
Generally speaking, there was a positive reaction. People have praised Blanka for improving her performance, especially her vocals. Solo became one of the most popular Eurovision 2023 songs.
There were only two minor issues worth mentioning. Norway's newspaper Verdens Gang has openly criticised Blanka. Unfortunately, my Norwegian is non-existent and so this translation is straight from Google Translate. The original comment can be found here.
"Polish plastic pop reggae in the category that was once dominated by Swedes in the Stone Age (nineties). Blanka is probably not singing about Norwegian orange soda or a scruffy looking Star Wars hero, but about being completely alone in a relationship. The best thing that can be said about the "Solo" show is that she has the best glove of the finale. She falls out of tune, and loses her tone several times, That she actually thinks she can sing is hopelessly overwhelming. That, and that no adults have stopped this - regardless of the corruption charges."
Even Sweden talked about potential corruption and nepotism. They mentioned that Blanka's choreography was created by Egurolla. Funnily, even Edyta Górniak was mentioned, but she was called Blanka's mother-in-law.
Then there was a final performance, which had a similar reaction. The only difference was the lack of drama from the media and Polish fans even being proud of her. Blanka was placed 24th by judges and she was better than two performers. However, she got 8th place in televoting and it got her 19th place. A bit worse than the previous representative, who got 12th place.

The conclusion

Blanka managed to partially save her face and it's unclear what's going to happen in future. Blanka after Eurovision went on vacation and there hasn't been much news about her.
There was some discussion regarding her placement in televotes ranking and some people in the Eurovision subreddit have used her to make a point about how televoting is bad, while discussing the whole drama that happened due to Loreen's victory. For more information, I recommend checking this write-up.
Other contestants of pre-selections are doing fine and many of them released new songs. Especially Jann is doing well as his fanbase tripled in size and he is going to perform at OGAE Second Chance. Edyta Górniak and her son are still active, while Agustin Egurrola is focusing on his dance studio.
TVP is still controversial due to politics and it will probably remain controversial for a long time due to recent events. Years of bad reputation are hard to erase and most people are ready for another controversy Eurovision controversy.

My favourite summer iced espresso beverage is the Grande Iced Caramel Macchiato. That has four pumps of vanilla syrup. I have tried three and it’s too sweet. Two and I’m missing that sweetness just a bit. So I ask for two and a half pumps. (When I order in person since I can’t on the mobile app). But is that annoying. I don’t want to be “that customer”.

2023.06.06 18:38 Intak3_CS Need a low stack stem

After slogging through all the old posts about steerer tubes being to short. I still managed to get my hands on a new to me fork with a short steerer tube. I managed to install it on my bike as well as installed a new lower profile headset. I'm looking for a low stack stem. My current stems stack is 38mm. With my current stem the top of the steerer tube sits about 7mm below the top clamp of the stem. Would prefer to go as low as possible with the new stem just so I feel safer about it. Any suggestions would be wonderful! I am in Canada if that helps, and I am not running any spacers
