Tarsal bones broke in three places - cast or boot?
Hello! I fell of a bike and broke three tarsal bones in my foot in three places a couple of days ago.
I couldn’t put any weight on it whatsoever. There was the option of the boot but as I was NWB on it at the time the doctor said it was a cast.
The cast is HORRIBLE. Feel like I’m the only person alive who can’t properly use crutches lol it’s SO heavy and I feel like I’ve done 60 push ups an hour with muscle tightness in my chest from carting about my weight. I also keep forgetting and accidentally put it down. It’s also super painful on my left hip clearly bcus it’s overcompensating now.
My question is - do you think when I have my two week review I could ask for a boot? Are they used for different stage of healing? What’s better - cast or boot? I don’t know how bad the breaks are or if they’re fractures!

2023.06.04 04:47 Coffee_In_Nebula AITA if I confront my friend about her Snapchat post with friends, but says she’s too busy to hang out with me?

We’ve been friends since we were small, but it’s always me reaching out first to text her otherwise it’s weeks of no texts.
Here’s the dilemma:
She recently got a job taking over for a teacher for the rest of the school year (she’s finished teachers college) M-F 8-3, and she also works casual as a DSW with clients, but says she’s taking on lots of shifts.
In the last two weeks, she’s only visited for an hour on my birthday (though she legit had to work), and when I text her to say hey we should get together sometime (about once a week) she always says she’s getting ready for work, super busy so can’t, etc.
She posted on Snapchat a half hour ago a photo of her with five other girls, with drinks and games on the table. My aunt who works with her doesn’t recognize any of them from work.
It kind of hurts that it seems she made time to hang out with others but not me.
So, AITA if i tell her why it hurts my feelings, or should I ask her if it was a work event in a casual way?

2023.06.04 04:44 AvariceUnlike AITA for not getting my boyfriend’s twin brother a birthday gift?

So my boyfriend “James” (27) has a twin brother “Josh”. Josh lives a few hours away and I’ve only met him twice, we’re not close. However, I do have his phone number.
James and Josh recently had their birthday, and I got James some fancy flowers and gourmet chocolate because I’m a hopeless romantic. I don’t know how (I assume through James), but Josh found out what I got for James.
He texted me to “catch up”, but it eventually lead to him asking me about the shopping number for his gift, because it had been a few days and it hadn’t arrived. I was confused, and I told him that I didn’t get him anything. He got super offended and blocked me.
I talked to a friend about the whole thing, and she said that it was “kinda unfair” to get one twin a birthday gift and not the other. She told me I should just get him something cheap to appease him and not make bad blood with James’s family.
I don’t think I’m in the wrong, but his strong reaction and my friend’s words have me second guessing. AITA?

2023.06.04 04:43 FlySwat The SawStop Over Arm dust collector sucks

The SawStop Over Arm dust collector sucks
And I mean sucks in a bad way, as in, it sucks at sucking.
My shop is setup with a Oneida Supercell and 4” duct that does a fantastic job of keeping every machine dust free with the exception of the table saw.
The saw loves to coat me in sawdust when ripping, so I bought the over arm system and was super disappointed to see almost no difference with dust collected.
Given the supercells design for “1 machine”, I figured it was just too much for the little collector and have lived with it.
This weekend I decided to experiment by picking up a cheap second dust collector and having it just hooked to the over arm. It made no difference unless I had the hood so close to the workpiece that I couldn’t move the fence over or use push sticks. Basically useless.
I tried a couple setups:
  1. Second DC just venting to filter bag
  2. Second DC venting to primary DC (this would be ideal if it worked)
In both cases plenty of sawdust remained on the saw.
At this point I’m planning on removing the arm and selling it, it doesn’t do any good and gets in the way.
Has anyone built a setup that makes this thing useful? Does it need to be on a 5HP DC?

2023.06.04 04:41 Aggressive_Future921 I’ve Seen What lies Beyond the Gates in Blackwood Forest

The Blackwood Forest has always been a source of legend in our town. Not for anything good, though. Everyone here fears it. They always remind newcomers to “Never go into Blackwood Forest.” Nobody who enters it ever comes back. At least, that was how things used to be.

One of the most famous incidents surrounding the forest occurred around 1989. A family of 6, the Franks, moved into a house not far from the forest. It had an expansive backyard, stretching up until the edge of the dense clusters of trees that make up the boundary of Blackwood Forest. One evening, they decided to eat dinner in their new backyard. They weren’t going into the forest, just the fire pit about halfway between their house and the trees. Another family of 3, the Andersons, joined them. At around 8:30, screaming was heard by nearby neighbors. The police were called. When they arrived, they found that the benches, tables, and chairs were soaked in blood. The grass was smeared with it in a path leading into the forest. There was no sign of either of the families. The police confirmed the blood of 9 individuals was present at the scene. Enough blood was lost to assume the deaths of all 9 individuals.

After that day, a massive fence was built around the forest, to keep us out, or keep other things in. The fence is 11 feet tall and designed to be impossible to climb over, with almost no footholds. A gate is kept locked tight, located at the end of a worn path leading out of the side of town. Nobody goes in, and nothing gets out. Not that anyone knows what took the Franks or Robinsons. Except, of course, for me. I’ve seen what lies beyond the gates of Blackwood Forest. I’ve seen the beasts that took those families, all those years ago.

The fence wasn’t really necessary to be perfectly honest. There aren’t really any trails to hike through the forest, and we don’t have many issues with kids doing stupid things like trying to sneak in for “fame.” Even if we did, the fence keeps them out. Therefore nobody has any reason to go into the forest. Everyone is too afraid.

But, although I listened to what everyone always said; “Never go into Blackwood Forest,” I was curious. My morning run took me past the fence and gate, and I would sometimes glance in to see what was in there. I thought it looked like a normal, albeit dark, forest. But I couldn’t shake the feeling that something was very off. There weren’t many animals, like birds or squirrels, and you couldn’t hear the ones that were there very well. It was oddly quiet. At night, no crickets would be heard. No fireflies during the summer. It was oddly devoid of animal life for a dense forest with so many places for a small critter to live or a bird to make a nest. However besides that, it really didn’t seem that dangerous.

A few weeks ago, my curiosity got the best of me. I decided to see if there were any openings that I could slip into. Sure enough, on the very far side of the fence, opposite the side with the town, I found a small gap I could squeeze into. I decided that the next morning, I would grab my phone and camera and explore some of the forest close to the fence. I was excited to see what lay within, and wondered about what sort of stuff I might find. After all, nobody ever went in there.

The next day came, and after eating breakfast, I jogged to the small opening I’d found the previous day. I had a backpack with some water and food, as well as the camera and phone. I pushed my backpack through first, and then squeezed through the opening.

The first thing I noticed upon entering was how dark it was. The trees blocked out much of the sunlight. It was hard to see very much. Thankfully, I could use both my phone’s flashlight and the one attached to my camera. As I walked, the quiet of the forest around me felt eerie. There should have been the sounds of animals beginning to wake up and start their day, but instead there was silence. Every sound I made, like stepping on a tree, quickly was dampened out, as if swallowed whole by the trees.

After a few minutes of walking and taking pictures, I came upon a worn path. I was confused, since there was no reason for any path to have been here because nobody had ever lived in the forest. I took another photo, and decided to follow the path. After another few minutes of walking, I noticed a clearing with sunlight pouring into it ahead. In the very center of it sat an old, decrepit stone building. Off to the side, there was an old well. The building had a very weathered but readable sign, identifying it as “Blackwood Church.” I took a photo of the church and well and decided to enter. I was very curious, as nobody should have ever lived out here, this deep into the woods. There was a church that had been built as part of the original town, so it didn’t make sense for this one to be there.

I walked through the place where the doors would have been, had they not rotted off of the hinges. I could see the space around me because of several holes in the roof allowing sunlight in. It seemed like it was once fairly normal, though weeds had sprouted up through the floorboards which were falling apart. I stepped outside after snapping some photographs. I was going to leave back along the path and get out of the forest. As I walked, I noticed that there seemed to be several old buildings, almost destroyed, spread out on the edges of the clearing. I began to see the old worn paths made of cobblestone and dirt, almost invisible, having been reclaimed by nature. This wasn’t just some church, this was an entire town.

I was both shocked and excited. I spent the next hour taking photographs of all of the somewhat intact buildings and their rubble counterparts. I spent around an hour exploring the town, exploring a butchers shop, clothes store, and general store. I finally made my way to the path I had come in on. I noticed, underneath all of the foliage, there seemed to be a sign. I brushed some of the growth away and read the faded words; “Welcome to Blackwood, Population: 349, c. 1903.”

At this point, on top of the confusion, there was a growing feeling of nervousness in my gut. I’d never heard of any town in Blackwood Forest. Our town, Greyrock Springs, was founded in 1909. I searched the other houses on the outskirts of this ghost town. In one of them, I found the journal of a 19 year old girl named Ellie. She had moved into the town with her family, the Wilsons, and another one they were close friends with, the Millers. They had moved in 1905. The first dozen pages were normal entries about life around the town, her friend, 19 year old Janie Miller, and her older brother, 21 year old Shaun Miller. She and Shaun were apparently set to get married in a year, something Ellie wrote almost endlessly about. The 20th entry, dated September 17, 1905, however, was different.

The 20th entry said that 7 townsfolk and gone missing suddenly overnight. It read, “Last night 7 of our neighbors vanished. The Smith family and Mr. H. The Sheriff doesn’t know what happened to them. Their beds appear to have been slept in, and their homes appear normal. But nobody has seen or heard of any of them since 8:00 last night. I’m getting worried, some of the other neighbors are talking about dark shadows in the trees snatching them away. I hope they’re alright.”

After reading this, my anxiety started growing. What could have happened to the people who lived here? I looked at the next entry, 6 days later. It read “Almost everyone has vanished. The night after the first disappearances, 14 people vanished. The numbers got worse from there. The Sheriff, the butcher, the schoolteacher, all gone. Last night, 34 people, including the Millers, vanished. There are only 115 of us now. Janie and Shaun are gone, their beds unkempt, everything else in place as if they just got up and walked out. It’s 7:52 at night according to my clock. There are things making weird screeches out there. I can see the shadows outside. They’re drawing closer. I think I’m going to join Janie and Shaun tonight. At least I won’t have to live on without my friend and love.”

Terror was beginning to take hold now. I looked around the room. I realized that it was now noon. I had been reading for so long I had lost track of time. I got up, grabbed the journal, and ran out of the house, the feeling of being watched nearly overwhelming me. I got to the path I had walked in on. It was then that the screeching and wailing began.

It started as an inhuman, deep, gravelly sound, and then cracked and sounded like a dying person giving a final cry for help. Soon, a chorus of these other-worldly howls filled the forest. Terror shot through my body. I felt chills. I turned and scanned my surroundings, searching for the source of the sounds.

That was when I saw one of Them for the first time.

I don’t know how to describe Them here, but I will do my best to give you an idea of what lurks in those woods.

They are tall, around 7 feet, with pure black skin. No light reflects off of any part of Them, except for their milky white eyes. Brown veins reach for the center of the eye, where the iris and pupil would have been. Instead, there was just more white. In some places, Their flesh clings to Their bones as though they have been vacuum-sealed. In others, the flesh is gone, and only bone remains. Their entire body has pulsating, grey veins spiderwebbing from place to place. And Their mouths stretch from one side of the head to the other, nearly to the hinges connecting the jaw to the skull. Their teeth are thin as a needle, and they have hundreds of them.

One of Them was standing close to me, looking at me. It let out a screech-wail and started to run towards me. I turned and bolted, running towards the church, hoping to escape through an window-opening. As I reached the church, I turned and glanced back, only to see It standing near the well, not moving. Instead, it was growling at me. As we stared each other down, more of Them began to appear. They formed a ring around the church. I was now trapped. Panic began to set in more deeply, as I looked through the window-openings, trying to look for a weakness in the circle I could use to escape, and there was one. Directly behind the church, there was a large opening in the ring of monsters surrounding me. Taking several deep breaths and becoming as calm as I could given the circumstances, I took my opportunity and ran. I jumped out the window and sprinting with more force than I have ever used in my life.

I made it to the trees, hearing their horrible screech-wails following uncomfortably close behind. I didn’t stop, running through the foliage like my life depended on it, which I could tell it did. Most of Them remained behind, but a few followed me deeper and deeper into the forest, not letting up. The trees and brush whipped at me, stinging and cutting my skin, but a continued, even going faster. I finally stopped when I couldn’t hear Them behind me anymore. By this point, it was closer to 2:00 P.M. I had run in the opposite direction I had entered Blackwood from. The adrenaline I had felt began to wear off, and I wanted to collapse from exhaustion, but I knew those things would keep looking for me until they found me.

I spent the rest of the day cautiously searching for the fence, but no matter how hard I looked, I couldn’t find it. By the time it got dark, I was exhausted. The adrenaline from the whole day had turned into a mix of emotions, namely fear and anxiety. I decided to hide in a tree, in the event They found me. As I sat there, looking, I began to hear that screeching wail and those deep growls and grunts. They were close. I held my breath as the first one approached. It looked around, peering through the forest, searching for me. I got the feeling it knew I was close.

It started to scan some bushes near the tree I was in, when It looked up suddenly. I fell from my spot in surprise, hitting the ground hard and with a grunt. It let out a wail, and started to approach me. I searched for something to use as a weapon, and found a sharp rock. I looked at the large veins covering It’s chest area. It seemed like the perfect target. It began to run, screeched and then lunged. I pulled the rock from behind my back and sliced with ferocity, cutting through the veins like paper. It screamed and shrieked, black ooze shooting out of the wound like a hose until it stopped. The creature let out a final wail before collapsing to the ground. I looked at it. I could hear a sickly breathing coming from the thing. Before it died, I heard a distorted but human voice mutter a weak “Thank.. you..” and then the breathing stopped. I was stunned. I didn’t have much time to think about it, because more wails could be heard approaching fast in the distance. I continued to run through the forest, more adrenaline pumping through my veins, fear at the back of my mind. I ran for a long time until I ended up back in that town. I hid in the church, underneath the floorboards. At some point, I fell asleep from exhaustion.

The next 6 days were awful. I spent most of them hiding, slowly running through my food and water I had packed. One morning, as I reached the last of my water, I realized I had to escape. Although They searched the forests for me, I thought I could slip past Them and make it to the fence. But after a few minutes of preparing, I heard those wails approaching from the distance yet again. I grabbed my backpack and stepped outside again. I looked, seeing the creatures from before step out from the trees. I prepared myself, and ran. All of them began to follow me, their screeches cutting through the quiet of the forest and reminding me of how close I was to death. I went down that same worn path, sprinting through the woods. One jumped out in front of me, forcing me to veer off the path and into the forest. I ran, nearly tripping and getting cut on the branches. That was when I saw it. Ahead of me, finally, lay the fence. I took off the backpack as I approached. There was the gap. I was about to escape. They were close now, just a few yards away. I forced the backpack through the opening, forcing myself through it just as they reached the fence.

I turned to look back at them, snapping one final photograph. I’m not entirely sure why I did that, but maybe I just wanted proof of the truth. That I wasn’t crazy. What I saw was real. I grabbed the backpack and ran back towards town, towards safety, towards home, their growls and wails fading behind me.

I want to say that I’m safe now, that everything is ok, but it isn’t. A week ago, I started to hear whispers from my neighbors of wails, screeches, and growls coming from the fence. If anyone looked in the direction the sound was coming from, it stopped. I had to walk past the fence a few days ago, and I heard it. I was all alone. The fence started to rattle as well. I turned to look, but only saw a tall shadow slipping into the darkness of the trees.

Last night, two people who were walking past the fence vanished.

That brings us to today.

I know what They want. They are angry. I wasn’t supposed to escape. I don’t want to do this, but I won’t endanger anyone else who lives here.

I’ll leave the photos, camera, and journal in my desk for safe keeping. That way people will understand what I saw, at least partially. People will hear the story of the townspeople of Blackwood. That is the reason I’m posting this. So more of you know.

I have accepted my fate. After I post this, I will walk to the gate, and I will be taken. I don’t know for sure, but I think I will become one of Them, cursed to walk Blackwood Forest forever. My consciousness will be left a fragment, my humanity gone, as I walk the forest and wail, screech, and growl. This is the end for me. If anyone cares, my name is Daniel. I am 29 years old. I live in Greyrock Springs. If you come here, to find me or Blackwood or those things, or maybe even the pictures and journal, remember one thing.

Never go into Blackwood Forest.

< Ep 4- Part 1
Based on the fourth round of the elimination contest
Spoiler tag only for basic character spoilers
[Team Looming Lions]
Kaito: Alright Lions we're winning this one again today, right?
Nekomaru: Absolutely! Of course I'm not sure which of us will be performing.
Kokichi: Well, Kaito's a bumbling moron so he's out.
Kaito: Hey, what the heck man! I mean sure being the Ultimate Astronaut isn't that impressive for a show but so is your talent.
Kokichi: So true Kaito! Glad to hear you didn't refute the fact of you being a moron though. Nee hee hee.
Kaito: Why you little-
Angie: Calm down, Tyler. Atua has foreseen what will lead us to victory. I shall take the lead and create a beautiful masterpiece in the name of Atua.
Mondo: Okay, so Angie's doing art. What are the rest of us supposed to do to perform along side?
Mahiru: I could take some action shots of her work. Though I'm not sure how impressive of a performance it will be.
Hajime: Your ability to take perfect photos is still impressive in its own right, Mahiru.
Mahiru: Hajime…
Celeste: So it's decided. Angie and Courtney will be performing with some artistic photography
Angie: Nyahahahah, wonderful though if we're doing artistic pictures, would it help to provide something more visual. Body models for example?
Mahiru: Absolutely not! These boys don't get to see anything like that. Speaking of which, how about you boys pitch in on the performance?
Celeste: Well, we've already established Max and Tyler are out. How about you, Trent. You could hit some tennis balls to add to the action shots.
Ryoma: Sorry, but I've sworn off using my talent ever again.
Celeste: Oh really, then how about a threat. Perform with the girls, or when we lose we'll vote you off immediately!
Ryoma: Go ahead, like this competition means anything to me anyways. This is merely just prolonging my time out of prison.
Chihiro: Stop it. Both of you. Celeste, I think it's clear Ryoma won't do it. Of course, I won't be much help either. Not without some kind of computer to work with.
Mondo: If I had a bike, I could do some tricks around Angie while she makes her art.
Nekomaru: Alright then I guess it's up to me. I'll be the manager to keep the show going and make sure we do it PERFECT!!!
Kirumi: If you need me, I could also be your assistant for the performance and clean up afterwards.
Mahiru: Then let's get started. Time to make something at least mostly coherent.
[Team Ominous Octopi]
Maki: So, who wants to volunteer for this talent show?
Korekiyo: I believe it's pretty obvious that Kaede and Ibuki should perform as a musical duo.
Ibuki: You got it! Izzy and Sky-ede here are gonna rock this camp!
Kaede: Sure, but that's only two. We need a third.
Chiaki: If I had a big screen and a console, I could play video games with you playing the music to it. Too bad they don't have any of that here.
Akane: I could do some flips over you two.
Taka: Too dangerous. Plus we don't want any of you to get hurt.
Maki: Then I guess killing someone to music is out, huh?
Taka: Absolutely!!!
Maki: I was kidding anyway.
Kaede: Haha, wow Maki, never seen that side of you before.
Maki: Don't push it. What about you, Shuichi?
Shuichi: Well, unlike Kyoko I'm not even that talented a detective, but I'm not certain how you'd perform that talent.
Korekiyo: I could give an archaeological lesson with a pleasant backing track by these wonderfully talented ladies.
Maki: No way, after that stunt you pulled with Kaede, I don't trust you alone with her again even with Ibuki there.
Ibuki: How about DJ do the robot to our music. Ha ha, get it!
Keebo: Hey, that's robophobic to assume I could do such a stereotypical dance.
Akane: Well can you?
Keebo: No, I can't dance, however I could sing with them if you'd like?
Kaede: NO!
Shuichi: No way!
Maki: Not happening.
Korekiyo: Oh please, anything but that.
Keebo: Wha….fine.
[Team Nasty Narwhals]
Junko: So let's see talent…talent…which one of you losers has the best talent.
Sakura: I think it has less to do with best talent and more to do with talents that can perform with each other.
Sayaka: If that's the case, I'll volunteer to sing for this talent competition. You guys can make the show more exciting with your talents.
Tsumugi: I like that. I could make a costume for your performance though I'm not sure how much is that me performing with you.
Junko: Besides Beth, if anyone's going to make Ella fashionable it should be me.
Toko: We get it, we have costumes down b-b-but that still not get any closer to who's performing.
Miu: Well it's obvious the moody writer and clumsy nurse shouldn't perform.
Toko: Not like I wanted to in the first place.
Mikan: I'd probably just get hurt either way and embarrass our team.
Junko: Then how about the boys then?
Rantaro: Well, I'm not even sure what my talent is but I could try singing with Sayaka if you need me to.
Gonta: Rodney could bring bug friends on stage to perform with Ella.
Miu: Guess that leaves you and me, baby gangster.
Fuyuhiko: Like I'd do anything with you and what about B and Himiko?
Miu: Washboard chest is too mopey to do anything, and I still have no idea what Big B's deal is.
[They look over at him, but Imposter merely shrugs]
Miu: Besides you should be grateful that I'm offering my genius for the performance.
Sayaka: Okay Miu, what can you do to help my performance?
Miu: Well I'm glad you asked Pop Princess. Behold first up I have a fantastic voice amplifier perfect for singing into.
Sayaka: Oh wow, that actually might be helpful. I'm surprised you came up with something so normal.
Miu: Of course it was originally meant those wild nights when you want your moans and cries to really shake the bed. Hoo Yeah!
Tsumugi: And there it is.
Sayaka: Okay but with me singing, what will you be doing during the show?
Miu: Why adding a little flair to the show. Get ready for your outfit to practically explode for the audience. [Points an invention at Sayaka] Literally I might add.
Sayaka: W-wait, what are you-Agh! [Miu shoots the machine and Sayaka is enveloped in a flash of light] Ugh…why does it feel cooler……. AAAAAAAHHHH!!!
Tsumugi: Quickly cover her up!
Sakura: You boys didn't see anything, right?!
Fuyuhiko[Blushed smirk]: Uh…no not all.
Gonta: Rodney shall not look at the indecency for he is gentleman.
Miu: See, what'd I tell you. Quite the show stopper really! Be glad you didn't go commando today.
Tsumugi: Miu, how is Sayaka supposed to perform when she's left in her underwear?
Miu: Well, four eyes, I thought this is where you'd throw her into a different outfit like the Ultimate Cosplayer you claim to be.
Tsumugi: It's not like I can dress her in an instant. She'll still be seen.
Miu: Well that's for you to work out then dip[bleep]. I merely just provided the genius with my inventions.
Sakura: It's alright, Sayaka. Let's just think this idea through.
Sayaka: I don't want her inventions near me ever again!
Miu: Pfft, your loss then.
Sakura: I really, and I mean really hate to admit it....but Miu might've had something going there with her idea. The act of changing Sayaka's outfits while she's performing would be an impressive display. If only there was a way she wouldn't be seen during the swap.
[Team Looming Lions]
Nekomaru: Alright, Angie so how this is going to go is I throw tools to you and you work your artistic magic.
Mahiru: And I'll make sure to capture it all on film.
Angie: Absolutely, I shall let Atua guide me.
Celeste: Please dear, enough about Atua this time. Just perform your own talent.
Angie: Oh, but Atua is the one who blessed me with this talent so every work must always be an offering to him. Remember that Lightning and Courtney.
Mahiru: Sure gotcha…
Mahiru: I don't want to disrespect Angie's beliefs but relying on her God for everything even just a simple talent show may be a little much. But it's fine we have this performance in the bag. Chris is going to be blown away by my photography skills.
[Team Ominous Octopi]
Makoto: So run it by me again why I'm playing with Kaede.
Nagito: I'm not sure I'm cut out for play the bass guitar either.
Korekiyo: Well Kaede and Ibuki are going to teach you two the routine and with your luck you'll each learn it and play a beautiful duet.
Makoto: I'm not sure that's what being an Ultimate Lucky Student will help with.
Akane: No time to worry about it now we've got two hours left. Besides when we rely on both of you we win…well at least we don't lose.
Miu: Hey Cockoctpi, quit hogging the stage. Some of us have a performance to practice.
Korekiyo: Sorry, but we were here first. You'll just have to wait your turn. Whenever that will be, kehehehe.
Junko: Look, I understand that you need all the practice to not suck complete balls, but right now we need an empty stage, so Sayaka's not seen in her underwear too much.
Sayaka: Junko?!
Makoto: W-w-what? Sayaka's going to be performing in her underwear?
Junko: Oopsie, did I let that slip. My bad!
Tsumugi: It's more we need to work out how a quick change would work on stage, but uh she might still be seen in her underwear while rehearsing.
Sayaka: Will you all please stop talking about my underwear!
Akane: A quick change performance, huh? Good luck, even when I was wearing the skimpiest outfits for gymnastics, it still took a good thirty seconds to change.
Shuichi: Sounds like you'd need a miracle to not be seen then.
Sakura: Wait…a miracle…or magic. I'll be right back.
Miu: What's gotten into the orge?
Junko: Nevermind all that, we still need a stage to perform on.
Maki: Well then you're going to have to get through me, so unless you want to die, I say go practice over on the side of the camp like the Lions.
Junko: ………Fine Miss Assassin, you win. But I won't forget this. Come on team we're leaving. [Narwhals follow her reluctantly]
Kaede: Thanks for that, Maki. Okay Makoto, let's just try a simple scale.
Ibuki: And Harold, how about we try an A-chord.
Hiyoko: Hey, what's the big idea hogging the stage?!
Korekiyo: Here we go again.
Sonia: If it wouldn't be much trouble friends, we'd like to use the stage to practice our act.
Keebo: Is Hiyoko going to dance in her underwear too?
Hiyoko: Ew, gross! What are you saying you perverted robot!
Keebo: Sorry, I just assumed that was how all the girls were performing these days.
Maki: Ignore him, like we told the Narwhals, we were here first.
Byakuya: While I commend your fighting spirit, just know that no matter how much practice you do, you'll never be able to force talent onto those two.
Hiyoko: Yeah besides, we at least have our routine planned out and everyone with actual talent who's going to perform.
Korekiyo: Really, and what would that be?
Leon: Like we're going to tell you guys. Just give us the stage so we can practice already. We need to use the wood backdrop of the stage anyway.
Akane: If that's all it is then-HIYAH! [she breaks the backdrop in half and tosses it to Kazuichi] There, practice with your backdrop somewhere else.
Kazuichi: Seriously…well fine. Let's go Rhinos.
[Cut to Himiko sitting by herself. Sakura approaches]
Sakura: Mind if I sit down with you?
Himiko: Nyeh sure…I'm guessing they called you over to make me help them.
Sakura: Actually, I came over of my own volition. But I am curious if you'd like to help. Sayaka could really use your expertise in magic.
Himiko: Yeah I get it, you just want to use me for my talent but when I'm no longer useful you'll just vote me off the team. Just like how they treated Tenko.
Sakura: I understand why you're upset. It seems the Octopi weren't committed to understanding Tenko; she was a person you comfortably called a friend. Why couldn't anyone else do the same?
[Himiko doesn't respond but gently nods]
Sakura: Well, I'm not forcing you to do anything. I'm just trying to understand your feelings. In the end, it's your decision whether you want to be part of the team or not and I'll respect that decision.
[Himiko still doesn't respond but gives a side glance to Sakura]
Sakura: However, if you do decide to participate, we could honestly use your magical talent to save Sayaka from embarrassment. I've seen your shows, you have a knack for misdirection. It would help to provide misdirection when Miu attempts the wardrobe change. But of course, that's if you decide to help.
[Himiko looks forward again still in silence]
Sakura: Well, that's all I came over here for. I'll be getting back to making sure Miu doesn't embarrass the rest of the team. I hope you feel better, Himiko.
[Himiko quietly watches Sakura get up and leave, before looking forward again in deep thought]
Himiko: Nyeh, Tenko always believed in my magic but she believed in me as a person too. How can I guarantee the others see me as a person and not just the magician girl. Maybe I really can't…nyeh.
Junko: Well look what the Princess dragged in. You Rhinos got kicked off the stage too huh?
Hiyoko: Beat it, you skank. We're trying to rehearse and we've wasted enough time as it is.
Junko: Hey, I'm just trying to empathize with a fellow team. Those Octopi jerks shooed us away too. If only there was some way to get back at them. [Stares down Mukuro]
Sonia: Sorry Junko, but we need to practice right now, so no more distractions.
Junko: Fine fine, guess we should probably step away then. Don't want Sayaka's underwear to be a distraction.
Kazuichi: Wait, Sayaka's going to be singing in her underwear?
Sayaka: Stop telling everyone that!
Mahiru: Hey, would you other teams keep it down.
Nekomaru: Yeah, Angie needs complete concentration to work!
Sayaka: Ugh, let's just give up already there's no way Miu's invention is going to work without me being utterly embarrassed.
Miu: It could if you could change faster.
Tsumugi: And how do you suppose we do that. Hide her from plain sight everytime you shoot her.
Himiko: Sounds like you could use a little magic then.
Rantaro: Hey, Himiko's back. You feeling better?
Junko: Oh Staci, I knew you wouldn't let your team down.
Himiko: Nyeh…I didn't really want to do it for you but I'd feel awfully ashamed if I could've helped and didn't. So what's going on?
Miu: Well Shimplette, Pop Princess here is going to be zapped by my clothes cannon. It'll make it easier to change into a new outfit, but she's worried about everyone seeing her pink little panties.
Himiko: So you need a distraction to allow you time to change, huh? Okay, I can do that, just follow my lead.
Sayaka: Oh Himiko thank you so much, you're a lifesaver!
Kazuichi: Great you have your act figured out; now can we please have some room to practice?
Kazuichi: It took a little bit of creative thinking but with Hiyoko, Gundham and Mukuro we finally had an idea. Mukuro is going to throw knives around Hiyoko's dance while Gundham's hamsters do some tricks on the knives that get stuck in the backdrop. Pretty brilliant, right. I bet Miss Sonia thinks so!
Kazuichi: Hiyoko, are you ready to begin?
Hiyoko: I was born ready, dummy. This is my talent after all. [She begins dancing]
Kazuichi: Okay Mukuro, now aim carefully as not to hit Hiyoko and strike the backdrop with the knives.
Mukuro: Sure, no problem. [Starts throwing knives around Hiyoko]
Hiyoko: Eeee! [She jumps a little every time a knife whizzes past her, stabbing into the backdrop making little platforms]
Kazuichi: Alright Gundham, you're up!
Gundham: Hmph, while this may be a mockery of your power, for the good of our team do not disappoint me my Dark Devas of Destruction! To the left San-D. The right Maga-Z. Jum-P, the high one. And of course Cham-P, harness all your power and get to the low one there. [They each take a knife pedestal] Now switch it up! [They begin leaping from knife to knife timing it to Hiyoko's dance]
Kazuichi: Yes, this is working. Now Mukuro, just a few more knives to bring home the finale. Just aim true; you've got this.
Mukuro: Aim true, right…
Mukuro: I'm supposed to play dirty, right? I've never been more confident in my accuracy…and yet.
Hiyoko: Just throw it already, my dance is almost over.
Mukuro: *deep breath* [she eyes a slit through the backdrop and sees Kaede and Makoto at the piano] HIYAH!!!
[The knife speeds past Hiyoko and she feels the motion] Hiyoko: Hey, watch where you're throwing you clumsy-
Sonia: Oh no, Octopi, watch out!
Ibuki: Harold, come on, it's just a simple pluck and strum like this.
Nagito: Like this [strums his bass guitar. Immediately a string breaks near the top and whips Makoto in the arm]
Makoto: Agh! [He falls from the piano bench in pain] What the heck was that for?!
[As he falls, the knife flies passed and ricochets off the piano]
Kaede: Woah! What the? Makoto, look out!
[The knife comes flying back towards the Rhinos]
Peko: I got this. [She take out her sword and deflects the knife away]
Yasuhiro: Watch where you're throwing that thing, you could've hurt someone.
Mukuro: Apologies, it must have hit a weak part of the backdrop. I'll be more careful nex-
Peko: Uh oh…
Mahiru: My….my….my camera!!! [The knife finally came to a stop lodging itself directly into her camera lens]
Nekomaru: HEEEEYYY!!! What happened over here?
Mondo: Yeah, what the [bleep] did you just do?
Mukuro: Oh crap…
Kazuichi: L-listen it was an accident, alright. We just had a mishap with the knife throws.
Kaito: You took out one of our performers!
Mukuro: I deeply apologize. It won't happen again.
Byakuya: You're right it won't because you're sitting this one out now.
Mukuro: What?
Aoi: Byakuya, please it was an accident. Besides, we need her for this.
Byakuya: Do we? Every time we rely on this incompetent soldier we either come in last place or second to last place. You're clearly putting too much faith in her. I don't care if we are in the same class, she's only become a detriment to the team even more than the little loudmouth.
Hiyoko: Hey!
[Mukuro looks over to Junko who simply gives a dismissive smirk]
Sonia: Byakuya, we don't need to be so harsh. Maybe Mukuro just needs a little break, if we just-
Mukuro: No, it's fine. If you don't want me anymore, I won't try to help you guys. See you later.
Byakuya: Finally, the girl gets the memo.
Sonia: Mukuro please, you don't have to do this.
Leon: Well, that's just great, so now who do you expect to perform for our team?
Byakuya: Figure it out yourself, and stop relying on one person to solve all your problems. I bet the swordswoman could do just as well. She hasn't been pulling her weight that much.
Yasuhiro: Dude, you can't just call her fat like that!
Byakuya: How about it, Pekoyama? Knives are just like mini swords, right?
Peko: If this is really how you want this competition to go, I'll give it a shot.
Aoi: But just know if we lose, we're blaming you for this, Byakuya.
Byakuya: Typical peasants. Putting all your actions into your emotions rather than your logic.
Sonia: Byakuya, that is enough. Even I, as a woman of nobility, know this is not how you should treat your friends!
Byakuya: So the Princess finally has a backbone.
Sonia: That's right, and I intend to use it and not let my friends be bullied around by you.
Kazuichi: You tell him Miss Sonia!
Byakuya: Fine then bring back the soldier girl but you better hurry because your time is up.
Leon: What do you mean?
[Loudspeaker feedback]
Chris: Attention all campers. Your three hours of preparation are over! Please join us at the stage. Narwhals you're up first.
Peko: Looks like he's right. It's fine, I'll do my best. Just know we're not afraid of you.
Byakuya: The feelings are mutual.
Sonia: Ooh, that Byakuya. First driving away Mukuro then thinking he can just boss us around. If I weren't trying to be so proper I'd call him a…call him… a [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] [bleep] with a [bleep] [bleep] in his [bleep] [be-

2023.06.04 04:41 Researcher_1999 Mystery Solved: The Real Reason the Cafeteria Bombs Failed (and Why a Diversionary Bomb Ignited When Moved/Kicked)

Mystery Solved: The Real Reason the Cafeteria Bombs Failed (and Why a Diversionary Bomb Ignited When Moved/Kicked)
The idea that those cafeteria bombs had any power whatsoever is giving them way too much credit.
Sure, the tanks were heavy, but that's where the impressive nature of these bombs begins and ends.
Disclaimer: This post in no way provides instructions on how to make a bomb or a timing device. This is an analysis of why their timers failed, which is basic electronic circuitry. While this post explains why the timers failed, it does not explain what should have been done to make them work. Their entire design was flawed. There was nothing they could have done differently other than make a completely different circuit, which will not be discussed in this post for obvious reasons.
Why did the cafeteria bomb timers fail?
If you know basic circuitry, it's obvious by looking at this photo:
Time clock
Most people have been told that in order to create a timing device out of a manual alarm clock, the hands need to be metal. Rumor has it, this particular model had plastic hands, which prevented the circuit from being completed. Plastic won't complete a circuit, it's true, but there are two reasons this doesn't matter: (1) there's a simple foolproof way to use a plastic hand anyway, but (2), their timers weren't built to complete the circuit with the clock hands.
How do we know this? There's no screw in the faceplate. Clock hands need to run into a metal post on the faceplate to complete a circuit. This is not how they created their circuitry. Their circuitry was 100% in the bells. Except they didn't actually create a circuit. They were given bad, bad instructions from someone.
Here's another clock and you can see there is no screw here, either.
Time clock

We don't have any evidence that they tested their timers
If they tested their timing circuitry with any success, they probably did it out in the open (not in a closed bag) because getting a fuse to light with wires is not as easy as lighting it with a lighter or even a match. The electricity needed to light the fuse before the matches would even come into play. They used matches all right, but if they couldn't get that fuse to ignite with the electricity at first, those matches were never going to ignite to kickstart their "bombs."
Their timers did ignite when the alarms went off
These timing devices did ignite, but had no real power because (1) they built a weak, useless "circuit" that rapidly connected and disconnected the circuit continuously, and (2) their ignition source (and power source - 9v battery) was weak.
Below is a video demonstrating the power of their "timing devices" with a comparable ignition source to what they used (Keep in mind, in this video, the circuit is created properly, the ignition source is slightly more ignitable than what they created, this uses a much more powerful battery, and it still has no power):
This is the amount of power their timers had to ignite those cafeteria bombs. Actually less, because of their ignition source, weak and intermittent circuitry, and weak battery.
Their circuitry did not have the power to ignite anything. It was dead from the start. Their setup was what kids do to ignite fireworks remotely when bored. My guess is they tested timers on bottle rockets and other things. Then, they tried to jump from igniting small fireworks with timers to massive bombs.
Was a diversionary bomb really kicked?
I don't buy the story that a diversionary bomb was kicked or moved and then it ignited. I think that's a cover story for why the bag only started a fire and didn't cause any kind of explosion. They already told the story that 2 separate cafe bombs failed because of a single loose wire (impossible and false). With the exception of their car bombs that were intentionally disrupted, it appears that all of their timers ignited at least to a smolder. If they told people this, they would have to account for why they only smoldered and two created a fire (one when shot in the cafeteria and one of the diversionary bombs). Based on the circuitry, they'd have to give away the fact that those cafe bombs were never going to explode, which would blow a hole in their story of why they never entered the school (pun intended).
How we know the clocks likely ignited properly, but were weak
Notice that you can't see the alarm hand in in the second photo. When this type of alarm goes off, the minute hand and small alarm hand overlap and the minute hand conceals the alarm hand underneath. The fact that the alarm hand isn't visible indicates this timing device ignited because of the circuitry. So, their circuitry "functioned," but it was weak.
The fact that this device ignited doesn't mean it ignited at the time set on the clock (12:48?). You can set these alarms for any time and then set the timer for any interval of time. They took the plastic/glass faceplates out, so it would have been possible to quickly and easily set the clock to, say, 12:30 and then set the alarm at 12:45 even if the real time was 9am, 8:33am, etc. With the hour hand at the 12, the minute hand at the 6, and the alarm hand at the 9, this timing device would go off in 15 minutes.
In the first image, the minute and hour hands are gone, but the alarm is set at 12, which means it was either set to ignite on the hour (if they set the clock to the correct time) or they used the 12 mark to make it ignite in a relative amount of time. For example, they could have set the clock to any time with the minute hand at the 45 minute mark (the "9") and that would give the timer 15 minutes before it would ignite. Since these clocks can be set to any time to make timing the ignition easy in chunks of 15-30 minutes, we will never know what time these devices were actually set to go off.
Dylan said it would be the most nerve-wracking 15 minutes of his life waiting for the timers to go off before they would start shooting, so they probably did set them for 15 minutes. If that's true, since they planted the bombs at 11am, they would have set them to ignite at 11:15, which makes sense, considering that's about when Dylan went into the cafeteria to apparently check on the bombs and then they started shooting right after.
And they wouldn't need to set the clocks to the actual time to make them go off in 15 minutes. They could have set a clock to 3:45 and set the alarm hand at the 12 and it would have gone off in 15 minutes. So again, we can't tell what time they actually ignited, only that they did ignite given their condition. The timers could have ignited in the bag at the right time and then fizzled out fast. In the video linked above, you'll see how hard it is to get fuse to ignite from this type of circuit, even when the circuit is made correctly and there is no lack of oxygen like there is in a closed bag.
How did they wire their circuits if it didn't involve the hands?
They set up their timers to complete the circuit with the hammer by ringing the bells. Don't worry, this isn't a functional circuit, nobody can take this information and use it. It's trash. However, it is a huge mistake a lot of people make when using alarm clocks to power DIY electronics projects.
Go back to the first alarm clock. Notice that there is only one wire connected to the bells - it's connected to the left bell. Notice the rest of the wire is out of the picture frame. Notice also that the metal hammer that rings the bells is missing from the clock. The hammer is either connected to an alligator clip on the other end of that wire and was ripped off the clock, or it completely fell out of the clock.
Also notice the duct tape on the metal bar that connects the bells. That's not there to hold the battery. The tape is wrapped over the space where they likely cut the bar in the middle.
Here's a video that shows the end result of igniting a very similar ignition source using the same type of circuit they made, but with 4x the battery power and at least 2x the number of matches to keep the flame going AND the person who created this is preventing the hammer from moving, so the circuit doesn't break 10x a second. This is MORE powerful than what they created, and observe how weak this is:
There's your maximum oh-so-powerful, deadly, "could have taken down the library and killed 500+ people" bomb ignition potential right there.
It's completely understandable that the response that day was to be cautious of their bombs. However, there is absolutely no reason to perpetuate the idea that their bombs could have ever gone off or posed a threat beyond the pressure release valve filling the cafeteria with gas that would ignite, or the fire we see in the CCTV footage. There never could have been any explosions even if they had created a proper electrical circuit (this is discussed in a previous post).
The media is fully responsible for creating Eric and Dylan to be legendary school shooters and failed bombers, where they almost killed hundreds of people. Not so. That's not reality.
From the other post about this:
The puny fire we see on the CCTV tape was all they ever could have achieved. The "cafeteria bombs" were not bombs. They were heavy things that resembled bombs made by two people who were living in a fantasy world trying to play "bomber" when in reality, they had no clue what they were doing.
When Eric wrote about possibly leaving the battery out of the device and then putting it in when he got the bomb into the commons to avoid having it blow up right then, he was dreaming. That's not how timers even work. He was puffing himself up in his own writing/verbal expressions on the Basement Tapes to make himself feel like he was a badass bomber who knew what he was doing. In reality, he was just like every other teenager, struggling with life more than most, and he had no idea how to be a real criminal. He wasn't the type, but he tried desperately to step into that image to become somebody in death, because he knew, just like everyone knows, that people don't care until you're dead. At least, from his perspective that was the only truth he knew.
Now who taught them this circuitry? I know for a fact that other TCMers knew how to make timers that worked and were quite powerful. Why would they choose this specific circuitry when the other option is far more popular and reliable? Someone out there is responsible for teaching them poorly (and thankfully, because they taught them wrong). To my knowledge, this bad circuitry is not in the ACB, so where the heck did they the idea from?
Did they have a friend taking an electronics course who taught them things here and there? Michelle Hartsough admitted to teaching them how to de-powder fireworks to use the powder for other purposes, since her dad was a pyrotechnics guy.
Someone out there knows the answer. They may even be reading this right now. Perhaps.
Columbine is a great example of how appearances can be deceiving. This is true on many levels, but especially with those "bombs." Now why would the media push that angle so hard? The story that they could have killed hundreds and it's a miracle their cafeteria bombs didn't go off?
I still think it was to cover for the fact that they used a bomb protocol that day and didn't get everyone into the building fast enough. Maybe it was their only line of defense against being sued into oblivion. Tell the families, community, judges, and juries that you couldn't go into the school because the whole school was booby-trapped (give me a break - booby-trapped with crickets?) and there were deadly devices everywhere (you mean pipe bombs that blew off an end cap at best?) and nobody will question you if you're the expert. Of course they had to be careful. They could have been injured, absolutely. Their pipe bombs had some power, but not enough to kill people with shrapnel (what shrapnel? They mostly remained intact), and not enough to warrant the lack of entry into the building. But, that's hindsight I guess.
So get the media to remind everyone for months and years that these two teenagers were in total control of the school with massively powerful, super-deadly bombs everywhere, and make the scene sound more dangerous than it really was for all those officers outside... and it will be believed. Man, they're legends because of this.
But leak one evidence photo of a timing device that gives away the whole show (plus other details in the documentation about the components) and when people notice the details, the circus comes to a close.
Th-th-th-th-th-th-th-that's all folks!

2023.06.04 04:39 summer10419 Long post but desperate for advice

So recently I’ve had a few issues come up with my NF regarding expectations, roles & responsibilities, and boundaries. Full disclosure we don’t have a contract (I’ve been with them for 3.5 years) I know bad move on my part but I didn’t stumble onto this thread until probably a year ago so didn’t realize this was a thing. Context follows for those who want it. If not, skip the next paragraph.
I’m salaried (still get time and a half after 40 hours) and some weeks I may only work 25, making this a pretty good gig. Full transparency, i make roughly 30k/year taxed. We landed on this after I told my NF I wasn’t making enough to live so I could either drop down to set hours to get a second job or I would need to be paid more. My hours are weird (6:30am-8 some mornings to bring kids to school) and then the afternoons and some weekends. Their biggest concern was having care when kids were sick from school, working through holiday breaks, date nights, etc. so the expectation was that I would make this set amount and be available up to 40 hours a week. I also started coming in to do moderate house cleaning (kitchen, living room, vacuuming) and do weekly grocery shopping (going to 3-5 stores every week) This has since become somewhat of a nightmare. I never have a set schedule made before the start of a week so often I’m getting my hours the day prior (including weekends) so my ability to make plans in advance even in my personal life is nonexistent.
This past week, dad texted me about babysitting for a date night, told me the reservation time was 6:30 and asked if I could work “until” to which I agreed. Previously mom said she had to work that day, but given conversation with dad afterwards, I was under the impression that 6:30 was new time they needed me. Mom texted me the night before to confirm I was coming in at 8am. Very confused I mentioned I thought the reservations were at 6:30. She said she had to work and that me being with the kids all day was priority number one. I explained I understood, was just confused based on conversation with dad. She then proceeded to tell me “just know he has no idea what’s going on with the kids at anytime so in the future, reach out and double check with me to confirm final schedule” followed by “and if you can’t do tomorrow, that’s okay. I’m really tired I wouldn’t mind an excuse not to go” Honestly, the whole interaction made me super uncomfortable because I felt that mom was in a way asking me to fall on the sword so she could skip her dinner without upsetting him and blame it on me not wanting to work a 12+ hour day. Additionally, it’s putting a lot of the responsibility on me to work out my own hours and coordination of schedules because they don’t communicate with each other beforehand, during, or after asking me to do things? It’s a lot of “check with him and figure it out” or “check with him and tell me what he says” I feel like they should be speaking with each other and then asking me for the things they need once they know the schedule.
I get to work the next day and I’m asked to do all of the laundry from a 10 day vacation (both child and adult on top of the normal laundry that was at the house—four loads total) which took me off guard because typically I’m asked to not wash adult clothes (she has certain things that are delicate etc) but I do that happily because I want to be helpful. This week I was also asked to do a grocery run to get “essentials” with no list so their fridge would be stacked when they got home from vacation and do a two hour round trip drive to go get their dog from boarding.
They end up going to dinner and 5B has epic tantrum right before bed, which is not out of the norm as he has some pretty moderate to severe behavioral struggles. They ended up coming home around 8:30 and mom went up to do damage control because he was still crying and upset and I was folding/putting away laundry. She came back downstairs and made it a point to tell me that 5B said “he didn’t think I should be their nanny anymore and that I don’t love him”. I know kids say things they don’t mean all the time but the fact that she would make a point to tell me that…. I don’t know if it felt like a threat that I might lose my job but more so a jab to insinuate that I’m a bad nanny. I’ve tried numerous times to have discussions with them about how they want me to handle his tantrums because he will scream at me and tell me to get out of the room he’s in, go away, hit me, tell me he hates me etc and on top of that will refuse to do anything i ask (including bath, bedtime routine, etc). I have never been able to get a solid answer or feedback on this and it’s left me feeling very helpless.
Finally today I get a text of a pile of food on the floor (all stuff she asked me to buy specifically for her over the last few weeks) and a text that says “All of this is expired…please always feel free to toss out anything expired”. Cleaning out the fridge has never been stated as one of my responsibilities, although from time to time I will take it upon myself to clear out leftovers I know are old and am always on top of making sure the kids aren’t eating moldy fruit or expired yogurt. I respond and explain I’m usually hesitant to throw away the adults stuff (do you guys throw away like $50+ of food out of your NF’s fridge????) but said if she would like me to add that to my list of weekly responsibilities, I’m happy to do so. She leaves me on read and later sends me a second full grocery list to do tomorrow. Did I mention I pay for their groceries and have to wait to be reimbursed by dad? He still owes me $300 from the grocery trip two days ago. :)
I feel frustrated because there seems to be a lot of animosity around me not doing specific things that I’m unaware are expected of me or doing things in a way they don’t agree with. They don’t take the initiative to address things (unless it’s something really big) and now I feel like I need to call a meeting or something to clear the air and address the backhanded comments. The work environment is starting to get so uncomfortable it’s making me question if I want to continue with them.
If anyone has advice on how to handle this, how to ask for a meeting, if I should quit, AITA, literally anything is appreciated.

2023.06.04 04:35 AcanthocephalaOk4068 Disputing a Driving Infringement [VIC]

Hi everyone,
A few weeks ago I was involved in a motorcycle accident where as I was filtering to the front (legal in Victoria), the passenger opened their door in the middle of the road since traffic was at a standstill and I didn't have time to get out of the way/slow down and slammed into the door. Ended up getting taken by ambo but got out with a broken wrist.
I was driving at the filtering speed limit (30km/h) and was also in the car lane (as apposed to the bike lane) when it happened.
I recently got a infringement in the mail for driving my bike in the bicycle lane for that accident. I have photos of the incident and it's clear that if I was in the bike lane and the door was opened, I wouldn't have even hit it in the first place.
I'm planning on disputing the fine, but would like to know the process + if there's any costs associated with disputing it.
Ride safe and be careful of idiots o7

2023.06.04 04:34 OhGeezItsRyu DLSS and input lag: does it really matter with COD servers?

Okay, so I've included a video for both attention and demonstration.
My game looks like GARBAGE, and I'm becoming less and less okay with it. I want to turn up my graphics settings, but I'm super turned off by input lag, which leads me to my question:
Will DLSS cause any noticeable input lag, and does that even matter when the servers themselves feel awful to play in (comparisons: CSGO, Valorant, Apex, MW2019)?

Bonus question: I know you see how inconsistent the video framerate is. I'm just using the snip tool in photos atm. Is there a video editing tool that I could easily get access to that is both user friendly and powerful (good option range and presets/goodies)?

2023.06.04 04:34 zxzxzxz19 PC won't connect to monitor

Before we begin, keep in mind i understand little to nothing about how computers, specs, monitors etc.
Anyways, recently i bought this PC from this site called Computer Lounge, i have had no previous issues or problems until now, i went away to stay at my friends place for about a week i came back to find that i had unknowingly left my PC powered on for an entire week (the switch at the back was on, not anything else)
Im not sure if this is the cause of my problem, when i natrually attemted to turn on my PC, there were no original errors, ran perfectly. That was until the moniter flickered to black after about 20 minutes. This brings us to where i am now, whenever i attempt to boot my PC i get a "No Signal" or variations synonymous with that depending on what monitor i experiment with.
When i first encountered this i tried to use a different monitor, though it led to the same result, my leading theory right now is that its a internal problem with the PC.
Ive looked online via google searches but none have worked for me so far.
ill provide information, photos etc about any of this hardware if needed.

2023.06.04 04:33 AcanthocephalaOk4068 Disputing a Driving Infringement Process

Hi everyone,
A few weeks ago I was involved in a motorcycle accident where as I was filtering to the front (legal in Victoria), the passenger opened their door in the middle of the road since traffic was at a standstill and I didn't have time to get out of the way/slow down. Ended up getting taken by ambo but got out with a broken wrist.
I was driving at the filtering speed limit (30km/h) and was also in the car lane (as apposed to the bike lane) when it happened.
I recently got a infringement in the mail for driving my bike in the bicycle lane for that accident. I have photos of the incident and it's clear that if I was in the bike lane and the door was opened, I wouldn't have even hit it in the first place.
I'm planning on disputing the fine, but would like to know the process + if there's any costs associated with disputing it.
Thanks all, and to my fellow riders, ride safe o7

2023.06.04 04:20 Intelligent-Line284 What sumo wheels will fit a 23 crf250

I’m a big street bike rider. Back last august I purchased a 23 crf250rx. I go trail riding about twice a month but after selling my street bike a few weeks ago I want something to hit some slow back roads on. I’m new to all this super moto stuff so I want to know what to look out for when is comes to wheels. What dimensions? What wheels fit? What’s good brands?

2023.06.04 04:18 Puzzleheaded_Park614 1965 Schwinn Racer

I know it's not super rare or special in any way, but I bought this at a flea market for $25 and fixed it up with my dad. So it has a lot of sentimental value. New tires, new cables & new brake pads but we decided to keep everything else original. Probably could use new wheels and a new chain, but until I can tell (I know nothing about bikes) I'm gonna ride it as it is.

4:50 EEST; The Sun is Rising Over Kyiv on the 466th Day of the Full-Scale Invasion. This week's entry in our series on Ukrainian Recipes is Verhuny, decadent but easy treats that are always best when made at home. + Discussion + Charities

🇺🇦 Слава Україні! 🇺🇦

Another entry in our series on Ukrainian cuisine! Previous entries:
Borshch Varenyky Salo Syrniki Korovai Horilka Pampushky Banosh Hrechanyky Kyivskyi Cake Makivnyk Vyshnyak Drunken Cherry Cake Varenukha Pumpkin Porridge Lazy Varenyky Holubtsi Kolach Kvas Christmas Borshch Uzvar Kutya Beetroot Salad Kapusnyak Nalysnyk Bublyk Deruny Wild Mushroom Sauce Yavorivskyi Pie Spring Dough Birds Kholodets Easter Bread (Babka/Paska) Khrin & Tsvikli Shpundra Teterya Green Borshch Kalatusha Elderflower Kvas Crimean Tatar Chebureky Ryazhanka


Don't make any sudden movements.
One of the most prominent sweet treats you're likely to see on your road trip across Ukraine is Verhuny. They are not just a part of the pantheon of Ukrainian desserts - in fact, they are a member of a veritable club of "fried dough cookie/pastry kinds of things" commonly referred to internationally as angel wings, a dish that is itself a notable member of the grander European family of cuisine. Ukraine's version also its own unique details.
Verhuny are fried dough pastries that have often been kissed by just a little alcohol - like Horilka. While I don't believe I've ever heard of them being made with yeasted dough, they were/are often traditionally made with cultured dairy products like sour cream or Kefir (I included a Kefir-based recipe below). If you're a civilized person that is an enjoyer of fried dough confections, Verhuny will introduce itself as an old familiar friend.
Okay, don't make eye contact. Just keep walking.
Verhuny come in many shapes and sizes depending on the mood or inclinations of the chef. Its name likely comes from an old word that means to weave. It's also worth mentioning that it is not uncommon in Ukraine for this same type of cookie to be referred to as Khrustyky (which roughly means crunchy things), which is also what they are referred to as in Poland from what I gather. A Verhun by any other name would indeed taste as sweet.
These are very old desserts - in fact, there's a whole museum called the Living Museum of Verhuny that is dedicated to this cookie in Poltava region! Here are some pics of their sweet activities:

Verhuny are super easy to make at home. Made at home is best!
I would like to hold a little poll in the comments because you may have noticed I am being coy and non-committal about using the terms cookie vs. pastry in regards to Verhuny. Please leave a comment dissertation on which terms best fits this delicacy.

How to Make Verhuny

Photo: Klopotenko.com
Recipe from Ievgen Klopotenko!
  • 400 g All Purpose Flour (+ for dusting the working surface)
  • 250 g Kefir (preferably 2.5%)
  • 100 g Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ tsp. Baking Powder
  • 500 ml of Sunflower oil for deep frying
  • 50 g of powdered Sugar (for dusting the Verhuny)
Step 1: In a deep bowl combine flour, baking powder, and sugar.
Step 2: Beat 1 egg and add it to the flour fix. Add Kefir. Mix with a spoon.
Step 3: Dust the work surface with flour and knead the dough until it does not stick to your hands. You can use a kitchen aid with a proper attachment.
Step 4: Make a ball from the dough, wrap in cling film and leave to rest for 20 minutes.
Step 5: Cut off a section of a dough and roll it out into a round shape about 3 - 4mm thick (0.1-0.15 of an inch).
Step 6: Cut strips about 6cm (2.5 inches) wide and cut them into rhombuses 9-10cm long (little under 4 inches).
Step 6.
Step 7: Make a 4cm (~1.5 inch) slit in the middle of each and pull one edge through the that slit in the middle you just made.
Step 7.
Step 8: Heat a pan, or a deep fryer with 500 ml of sunflower oil. Fry the dough on both sides, turning with a slotted spoon until a brown crust appears.
Step 9: Put the finished Verhuny on a plate covered with a paper towel to absorb excess oil. When they cool down, sprinkle 50 g of powdered sugar and serve.
Step Eat.
The 466th day of a nine year invasion that has been going on for centuries.
One day closer to victory.

2023.06.04 04:17 JoshAsdvgi The "Enukins"


The \"Enukins\"
- Little People of NW Alaska (Pt. Hope)
The little monkey men- "innukins-tsenin" of Alaska
as told by an Inupiaq man...

The enukins are described as "Little People", smallish, mischievous creatures of the night. The general region of their habitat is north of Kotzebue, Alaska and perhaps the Point Hope area is best known for being the origin of the "myth."
Many elders in Kotz area hand down andient fireside stories of "Enukins" to Inupiaq children.
Much like the white man tells boogie man stories to frighten his children so the Kotz elders told their children.
For example, the Native Inupiaq mother's would say,
"..if you don't behave, the Enukins will .... "

Anyone from NW Alaska will be familiar with the Little People called Enukins though little is known beyond Native oral history, which I am told has always been there...
I found these thoughts from an old thread by someone called, “Majik Imaje,” he signed himself from Pt Hope, Alaska.
"Enukins, they are The Little People that live underground in the Arctic.
Some of what I am about to tell you will seem preposterous, but just ask any person that lives in any village from Nome clear up to Barrow, Alaska and all of the villages of the entire North Slope Region, will tell you that what I am about to try and explain is "true".
Do I have photos? No, not yet, but I'm working on it, there has to be a way to prove this with recent giant advances in technology I am sure it will become possible to "catch & record proof” of the Ignaugalurauks…
The Little People that live underground and in caves here above the Arctic Circle.
This is no legend or folklore; new sightings are prevalent and constant each and every year!
I will tell you stories and provide photographs of all that "can be seen" in this vast huge expanse of area of several hundred thousand of square miles.
Things happen out here that just do not make sense.
For instance, you may not believe what I am about to explain, you have to be here to experience these happenings, no matter what I type, you will be very skeptical and doubtful ONLY because this does not happen where you live, therefore: ??
Lets start… at the beginning so you have a better understanding of what is going on up here where frequent reports abound and from in each and every village!
This is a vast area we are talking about in square miles, roughly the size of ALL the New England STATES put together empty.
A long time before the whaling companies arrived, the Ignaugalurauk's lived among the people of Point Hope, AK.
One of their young was eaten by a dog and they moved out of the village.
These enukin people are small, 3-4 feet in height!
They live in the old ways to this very day they dressed in caribou skins.
They still hunt with bow & arrow.
They live underground, and in caves all throughout this vast area.
They possess super human qualities that you will never believe.
They are incredibly strong and they can run, very fast; they sneak around the villages stealing food.
When any hunter shoots and kills a caribou, it requires two adult Inupiaq men to lift that caribou to place on a sled. It only takes ONE Ingnakalaurak or Enukins to pick one up and RUN WITH IT, over his head (carrying animal) running, with a dead caribou?
How do you make sense out of that?
Bush Pilots have reported seeing caribou moving, quickly, in a horizontal position??? Figure that one!
Let's stop right here and let me extend an invitation to you.
Anyone can come on up here, talk to the bush pilots.
They will tell you what they have seen with their own eyes, but you will not believe them, because, you know it makes little sense even though you have never been up here or heard of this before.
Come on up!! See and experience it for yourself.

Have I got your attention now …good.
I have no need to lie or exaggerate about any of what goes on up here around Pt Hope.
I have no problem with the truth however,
I do have a huge problem with liars and phonies that is why I stay up here in the Arctic; to us it's “Heaven on Earth”
Inupiaq man, Luke Koonuk was out hunting many miles from Point Hope, Imagine this if you can, …you travel hundreds of miles into a vast empty area, Luke's 4 wheel Honda was stuck in the mud.
He had tried and tried to lift or get it out of the ruts to get it free.
He was exhausted bent over huffing and puffing; exhausted when suddenly out of the corner of his eye he sees, his Honda rise in the air and come bouncing down on firmer ground and something that was sort of a blur, was running away.
When a hunter is lost or stuck or in trouble these little people seemingly appear out of no where to assist and then are gone in a flash.
Many people up here have had many different experiences, I could go on and on with stories of what goes on up here and I promise to tell all I have experienced during my almost 3 decades of living among the Inupiaq peoples.
Hunters, experienced hunters, often talk about caribou that they have shot & killed.
Dead and the caribou will disappear before they reach it to dress it out.
Make no mistake, these people are very good in what they do, they are perhaps the best hunters in the world.
Jump on a 4 wheel Honda or a snowmobile, and go 200 miles out into this empty region at 50 below zero and stay out there for weeks.
You see a caribou and shoot it, it falls down, motionless and they wait and watch; have a smoke… wait and watch.
We do not waste time out here driving; gas is too expensive; well over 5.00 per gallon for years up here.
“That caribou is dead,” said Inupiaq man Joe Oktillik, I got on my machine and drove over those hills, and ??
Where is it, I know this is the spot and there is no blood anyplace, no tracks to the left or the right and no tracks going straight ahead.
The last place I looked Joe said, “was up!?”
Caribou is gone, no tracks? This happens a lot up here.
I am not going to waste time here trying to convince anyone.
Come on up; go out there and see what happens.
I can be your guide.
Or connect you to a reputable source.
The best time to come on up here is in June during whaling festival in Barrow, Alaska;
I live here now, and I am inviting any and all that wish to see, experience, life in the arctic. Although my house is small, I can comfortably fit 4 people at any time.
I have two spare rooms in my two story house here in Barrow Alaska.
There are 5 adults living in this toasty warm house and two rooms to spare for any who wish to visit the Arctic at the top of the world in Barrow.
There are also a few hotels in town but they do not offer free home cooked meals, 5 times per day if necessary. So lets talk about "what goes on up here in the arctic.
