Hiraeth or Where the Children Play: Dog-meat and the Whipping Boy 
2023.06.04 07:42 Edwardthecrazyman Hiraeth or Where the Children Play: Dog-meat and the Whipping Boy 
If I were to guess, I’d imagine they took Andrew to Boss Harold before anyone else and the rumors around Golgotha seemed to support this supposition; the Bosses enjoyed their personal retribution away from the eyes of citizens, maybe it was talking or maybe more, and although there were whispers of the boy being strung up on the wall or maybe he’d be violated in the stocks for all to see, I imagined that the council I held with Boss Harold might’ve had something to do with that never materializing. When I was allowed to the boy’s cell, it was dark, and his face was bruised and the bandaging I’d applied to his severed wrist had been removed probably for amusement. The room was small and there were no windows and only a single doorway let out into the hallway which contained other cells and further, near the exit, there was the office of wall men. The guard that’d let me in locked the door behind me and Andrew sat on a metallic cot without cushioning, and he stared at the grimy floor through swollen eyes.
“Hello,” he said. And I was taken aback by the comment because he spoke it as quickly as he might passing a person in the street. He'd been through so much that the word was abrupt, skittish. I nodded and moved to him, reaching for his arm where he’d been nearly fatally wounded. It was infected. Without fighting me, he allowed me to tend to it without even a question; I wiped it and applied salve. Once it was cleaned and rewrapped and only after I’d settled on the cot beside him, he spoke again, “I heard stories about the cells, but I never thought they’d smell.”
I withdrew a handful of antibiotics, and he took them without putting them to his mouth. “You should have them,” I said, “You might lose the whole arm if not.”
“I might lose my life.”
“Maybe not,” I offered a grim smile and water with for the pills. “You’re alive still.”
“How much longer though?” He took the medicine and grimaced hard. The boy looked older than he was. “It smells like blood here. I can smell the people that’ve been here before.”
I patted him on the back and removed myself from the cell and he did not call after me, not even to ask for the return of his hand and I hoped that I could stave off whatever tortures the Bosses might have in store for him.
It’d been two days since I’d returned with Dave and Andrew and quickly after our arrival, I’d tried departing from the man and hoped he’d drop whatever revenge he believed I could assist him with, but it was to no avail for he attended everywhere with me since our return to Golgotha. Although he’d not been allowed to enter the cells alongside me, he was waiting for me outside as I stepped through the wall men’s office and into the noonday sun; I deftly plucked a pre-rolled cigarette from my pocket and tried at lighting it but before I’d even gotten the chance, he was there at the stoop of the office, pestering, “We should go somewhere quiet,” he said.
“What do you take me for exactly?” I asked while maintaining eye contact with the flame off a match.
“You’re capable enough. You could be a hero. I’d do it with you. We could scrounge up a handful of people and change things. We really could.” Dave was casting sidelong glances at those that passed us in the dirt street just off the stoop, but nary one seemed to care about our conversation.
He put a hand on my shoulder, but I shrugged it off.
Felina’s was a structure partially built from ancient shipping containers directly in the heart of the hydroponics towers in the center of town; the chicken shit smell from the base of the towers came with nauseating stagnation and could make a passerby sick, but upon entering Felina’s, the smell subsided and was replaced with the smell of body sweat. The older barwoman stood behind the counter and me and Dave took up on the far corner where we sat around an old card table, using crates as chairs; no one else was there—the smell of the hydro towers probably had some hand in that.
Dave took in close to me so that I could feel the moisture off his breath, “I’ve been talking to a few others over at the towers and they feel the same way I feel—but with you—well without you I don’t think I’d want to do it.”
“No, please go on without me,” I slanted my body across the table to push my face away from Dave’s; with me positioned with my back against the wall, I spied Felina beyond the counter, arms across her chest and watching us with an air of suspicion. She came to our table, slowly with her club foot and upon reaching us, she used our table for mild support with her big hands and greeted us without excitement.
Dave asked for water and her gaze shifted to me and I dismissed her, and we were alone till she limped back over with a pitcher and glass and Dave drank it greedily while Felina watched on from beyond the counter—her eyes suspicious but pretty blue too. She kept the haft from a dismembered axe behind the counter and was known to throttle unruly patrons with it.
Although some might have called Felina’s a bar, it was just short of it because of the rarity of spirits—besides, it was the upstairs brothel portion that the establishment owed to its popularity. Anyone might brave the smell from the street for companionship and if the noises from the rusted overhead support beams were anything to measure, the clientele was content indeed. A man descended from the stairs by the bar, gave a brief nod to Felina then to us and disappeared through the front door; a waft of the outside air rushed in, and Dave scrunched his nose.
“It’s a funny thing, I’ve passed by here all the time, but I don’t think I’ve been inside since before—” he paused, “Well, since before anyway.” He took a drink of water and rubbed his palms against his cheeks. “I know someone that works underground and could get us some gunpowder.”
I merely laughed at this. “Gunpowder, huh?”
“Well sure. The Bosses have reserves in the basements. We could blow them sky high.”
“More likely that you’d blow your hands off.”
“What’s it going to take to convince you?”
I thought, “Could you promise no one would die?”
Dave seemed baffled at the question. “Who cares?”
“These things hardly ever happen quietly—or without collateral. How’s this? Could you promise that no innocents get caught in stray fire?”
“Then you are as ill prepared as I’d imagined.”
“What’s that mean?”
“The meek are intended to inherit, but many will die before all that.”
“Nothing. I wish you’d leave it be.”
Another patron stumbled down the stairs, a scrawny tall man with a thin beard came charging into the chamber without clothes and a voice followed him, crying loudly, “Sonofabitch tried choking me!” A pair of arms and legs came stumbling down after—the source of the cries. There was a topless woman, a belt secured around one of her wrists and a pink mark around her throat. The naked man protested and put up his hands as the woman swung the arm with the belt and whipped at him with it, striking across the forearm he’d shielded himself with.
Felina moved carefully from around the counter, raised the haft, then brought it down across the man’s back. He stumbled to his knees, pleading. The barwoman raised the weapon once more and the sound was like wood against wood as it met the man’s head and his body was taken to the ground completely, perhaps dead, perhaps unconscious. The two women lifted the man out the door and Felina spat through the opening. Outside wind came again and Dave scrunched his nose once more before the door shut. The topless woman removed the belt from around her wrist, tossed it to the floor, then secured an arm across her chest before hurrying upstairs.
“So, gunpowder?” I asked Dave.
He nodded and took another drink of water while eyeing Felina as she took herself back to the counter and stowed the makeshift club into whatever place she kept it. “Yeah.”
“Go for it then and leave me out of it.” I fiddled with my thumbs across the table. “I’ll even make you a deal for when you come running to me for help later. If you blow your fingers off, I’ll try and help you find them. How’s about that?”
“I’ll wear you down.”
Another gust of wind came from the far door and I half expected to see the man that’d been removed there in the doorway, standing on his feet and ready for another round of punishment, but there was no one there in the hollow spot; as my gaze drifted from person-face level, I saw a medium sized mutt there in gray fur, pushing the door in with its nose and then sliding the rest of its starved body through—each of its yellowy sad eyes peered in and I could not tell the breed but Dave lifted himself from his seat and Felina went to the dog too.
“No dogs,” stated the woman.
Dave, the indomitable sweetheart that he was knelt to the dog’s face and touched its snout; it licked his hand and Dave said to Felina, “He’s not mine, but have you got some water for him?”
“No dogs inside. I don’t like repeating it.”
“Fair enough,” said Dave, “I don’t know who he—” he froze and then examined the rear of the dog before petting the dog on the head, “She
belongs to, but I’ll take her outside. Just. Please some water, won’t you?”
The barwoman first drummed her fingers against her leg then went to the counter and I noticed Dave flinch as she reached under there, but she came back with a bowl and he took it and ushered the dog out; as he exited, he called to me, and I sighed and moved with him.
Remaining in the street was the man that’d been tossed out, face up, half-opened eyes, and flies buzzed about, and I touched him with my foot, but he didn’t move. Blood leaked from his ears. “Dead,” I said.
Dave took the dog from the body around to the side of the building and the feces smell was strong with the hydro towers, but he sat the water down and the dog went at it quickly, without restraint and spilt half before the man went to steady it with his hand; he knelt by the dog and pushed a shoulder against the wall of the brothel.
“There you go,” I told him, “You’ve found someone dumb enough and maybe loyal enough to follow through with your little gunpowder plan. Strap a handful of dynamite to him and watch him go boom in the Boss’s faces.” I genuinely did try it as a joke.
“You can be very mean,” said Dave.
Once the bowl was dry besides dog spit, he returned it to Felina, reentering briefly, and it was just me and the dog and the dog looked up at me and I turned away while its voice whined in the back of its throat and I took a piece of hardtack from my pocket and tossed it on the ground—the dog went after it, assuredly snapping up dirt in the process. Then the creature made a dry and throaty sound from swallowing too quickly, but moments after the thick cracker was gone. It licked my hand gently, and I scratched its chin and Dave returned and upon seeing me with the dog, he gave me a look and then brought himself to the height of the dog in a hunker.
“Hey there,” he said to it, “Someone’s beat you up pretty bad, huh?” It was true; scars stood out in places where the dog had no fur.
In response, the weathered mutt hoisted its forepaws onto his knees and pushed its nose into his.
“Yeah, girl,” he took one of the dog’s ears between his forefinger and thumb and rubbed it gently and the animal looked up, sad eyed, “What’s a good name for you?”
“Dog-meat?” I proposed.
Dave shook his head. “What sort of sick joke is that?” but he was smiling, “No. I’ll come up with something to call her. Isn’t that right?” He asked the dog, massaging the face of the animal with his thumbs; the dog stared dumbly at him. “Maybe a Beth or a Patty might suit you. How do you like them?”
The dog licked his face but couldn’t speak.
“Well,” I said, “It’s a shame it got you, you’ll pick a person name for it and that’s strange. Why not call her Mary if you want a person name?”
“Bah,” said Dave, rising to a full stand; momentarily, even with the other folks passing us in the street, he took a moment to see the dead man we’d passed on our way out of Felina’s and for a moment he remained quiet. “I’ll come to you again Harlan. Maybe when I’ve got more of a plan. I only hope you’ll listen to the stuff I’ve said about it. I really do. I really hope you’ll be on the right side of this thing.”
“Sides are overrated.”
Dave put a hand on my shoulder, “Of course,” he nodded, “Whatever you say.”
He left with his new friend—the dog following him traced from left to right close behind Dave and I watched him take off and around the nearest hydro tower and I was alone on the street and evening wouldn’t be far away, so I took to home while staring at my moving feet and speaking to no one. A few people along the way tried nodding at me or saying a small greeting here or there, but I was absorbed in my own head, and nothing took me from it once I got going. Maybe that was one of the reasons I enjoyed the wastes; there were no pretenses out there and with the constant thought of death there was no other thing to think about than each passing moment. I could not shut my thoughts up. I could ramble more about the motivations of a scavver, but I don’t think I should—leave that for someone that cares.
Upon taking the catwalks where I could look out on a swatch of Golgotha with the sun beating down and the constant hum of people going about their business, I was frozen on the railing and wishing I’d taken my own life and wishing that Dave had not found me out there; maybe if I was faster or smarter or better in whatever way that mattered.
I pushed into the door into my small abode and cool blood pushed through my body on seeing the robed girl there on my mattress, holding a shotgun with its barrel angled directly at me; she donned a flowy mess of dresses and kept her head wrapped in garb so that only her eyes shone through, but her arms stuck from the mess of cloth and I could see they were skinny with long scab marks like a blade had drawn across the flesh.
“Harlan?” asked the girl.
“Is that mine?” I nodded at the pump-shotgun in her hands. The slowness of the world was gone, and I could think again; if things were different, I’d have been a dead man, but it was unloaded, and I knew it.
“It was hanging on the wall—I don’t know how to use the thing anyway. I don’t know what I was doing with it,” she said, “You just scared me, and I didn’t know who you might’ve been.”
“This is my place.”
She laid the shotgun on the bed and unwrapped her face; it was Gemma, “You were with Andrew.”
“You said he was dead.”
I brought in air slowly through my nose. “I did.”
I nodded, letting the air come out.
“I needed to find you.”
“But you found us both then, I guess.”
“Not on purpose.” A thought occurred to me, “Does you father know where you are right now?”
She shook her head; although rest had done her good, there was still a fair amount of fatigue present on her. “I snuck out.”
“Would’a though you learned your lesson on that front.”
“Is Andrew okay? No one will tell me anything about it.”
“He’s locked up right now, but he is alive. For how long? I don’t know. I figured your pop paid a visit to him already—wouldn’t you know about that?”
She shook her head again. “Woo,” Gemma slumped onto the side of my mattress and gathered the robes around her, “I’m feeling faint.”
I moved to the bed and gathered the shotgun, putting it back on the hooks in the wall. “You shouldn’t break into people’s homes.”
Cupping her brow in a hand so that I could only see her mouth and the bottom of her nose, she said, “I just needed to know he was alive. These past days I’ve been so worried about him. I knew you told me he was dead, but I knew you were a liar too. So, I had bad thoughts about what might’ve happened to him out there. If what happened to me was anything to go off.” Her voice broke for a moment and then she pulled her hand from her face and blinked a few sudden times. “I just.”
“I get it. You love the boy.”
She nodded without looking at me.
“So, beg your dad to let him go.”
“Everyone’s so mad at him. It’s funny that everyone’s so mad at him, but it was my idea, and they all treat me like a darling little flower. Like I couldn’t have been the one with the idea of running away. I had more reason to run than he ever did.”
“You should leave.”
“I don’t want to. Can’t you see that’s what I’ve been saying? Judge all you like. Call me rich all you like, but I can tell you this: I don’t feel like it.” Gemma grabbed the edge of the bed as her head wavered on her shoulders. “Dizzy spells are awful.” She shook her head. “Like no sickness ever.” Her eyes locked on mine. “Help me.”
“I’ve already tried convincing them not to kill him.” Taking a pause, I thought to add, “And I personally saw to his injuries. Please go and leave me be.”
“Oh, but you’ve asked for it,” she said, “You put yourself in the business of it.”
“Look. All’s I wanted was to save you if I could and get the water running again. That’s it. Now go.” I put my arm up to wave her out the door and she stood to make her way there, catching herself on the frame, then out on the catwalk railing before turning and looking at me over her shoulder.
“Bastard.” she said.
“Yes.” The door shut between us, and I took myself to sitting on the bed’s edge and reminiscing over how Dave reminded me so much of Jackson. Jackson was a real tough one; whatever happened he always kept a cool head (so I reckon him and Dave would be different in that way) and the idea of being a hero was so big for him. It’s a curious thought: whether Dave would have such ideas if hadn’t been for the tragic loss of his family.
The shotgun sat on there on the wall, and I took it and looked over it, putting the stock in my left hand then my right and laid it across my legs; the woven strap on it had gone thin so that the place I’d once worn it over my shoulder was mostly threadbare. I moved to the cabinet by the sink where I kept a few essentials and in the very back there was an old box of shells—it was a surprise they still seemed good, but with old ammo you never could tell, and the shells were just as likely to fire true as they might be to never send pellets from the barrel. I took a knife and began whittling into a shell I’d plucked from the box. Pellets spilled between my feet as I sat on the bed and they rolled across the floor and then I found the gunpowder and rose again, sprinkling it onto the cabinet top into a neat pile. Dave said he had a fella’ he knew that worked in the underground—the sort of person that could get him all the gunpowder he needed. Was he familiar with its destructive force; had he ever fired a gun? He promised me no one innocent would die and I knew that was a lie and there’s surely a piece of him that knew it was a lie just as well.
It was just then as I took a forefinger and thumb and pinched up a bit from the gunpowder splat that I remembered a thing that Jackson told me all the time when he thought none of the others were listening. The gunpowder rained from my fingertips as I rubbed them together and I sniffed the place where they’d become sooty, taking in a smell I’d not smelled in a long time. Jackson would say, “Whoever fights monsters should be sure that he don’t become a monster.” It wouldn’t be for a long time—after I’d visited the libraries in Alexandria or Babylon (take your preference)—till I realized it was a quote that Jackson stole from some guy named Neet-chee. It seemed like a good thing to adhere to, and it was certainly something I wasn’t good at keeping with and if I couldn’t then there was little certainty that Dave would keep to it either. Maybe I had become a monster; morally dubious anyway.
Jackson was a hero, and he was dead as was Sibylle as was Billy as was John and all of them. We’d tried heroing and it got all of us dead. Almost all of us.
I hung the shotgun on the wall and left it there and swept the gunpowder into the floor with a flat palm where the pellets were and chucked the box of old shells into the cabinet again.
Ringing of bells came from the hall of the Bosses and it was time for a display. Denizens gathered in the front square by the gates and awaited while they trotted out Andrew; perhaps the words I’d passed to Boss Harold rang hollow after all. The Bosses were there just as always, drinking their wine on the platform, and Maron was out front with his wall men in the semicircle of gathered Golgotha residents. Of the population, only a hundred or two gathered for this poor boy’s execution. The guards had, at some point after my departure, removed the bandage on his empty wrist and he looked more sickly in the face than before and his cheeks were swollen and he wept, seemingly not from the terror of it but from the skin around his eyes having been so damaged; tears came through swelled eyelids and a wall man kept him by the elbow and Maron marched to the boy and lifted the boy’s face with his hand to look into it and maybe he whispered something to him.
I weaved through the crowd, moving to the steps that led to the stage where the Bosses stood with their foods and wines and their plenty and upon approach, I was stopped by a wall men, but upon catching Boss Harold’s eye, he told the guard to let me through and I took the stairs and from the platform, I could see over the crowd—Dave was far in the rear of those gathered, totally disconnected from the others for he hunkered by a set of crates, patting the head of the dog we’d found just earlier in the day. For a moment, I wished I was there with him and not on the stage at all.
“Dear boy!” Boss Harold shouted at me over the excited jeers of the others, “It’s so good to see you again. You are quite the hero, and it’s always good to be in the company of those.”
I nodded at him and within a flash, he’d slammed his cup of wine into my hand, telling me to drink, and only moments passed before his own cup was replaced by a nearby servant. “We spoke about this?” I tried.
His face was red, and I could just make out the miniscule veins vibrant along the corners of his nose; the man was far gone drunk. “That boy’s been a thorn in my side for too long, so I know you understand it when I say that he needs punishment. I took all that you said into account,” his words slurred, and the sweet sick came off him in a breath of hot air when he pulled me in, resting his ear on my shoulder. “Nobody dies today, but ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’,” the Boss paused. “You’re not a father yourself, are you?”
I shook my head.
“Ah! Then you might not be familiar with that proverb required in bringing a child up in this world.” Boss Harold laughed. “I’d never take my sweet Gemma out in the square like this, but God there’s been times I’ve wanted it. ‘Spare the rod’.” He repeated. “But we’ve something a fair bit more interesting than a rod for that boy.” Boss Harold swayed on his feet and took the fist containing his cup of wine, pointing with his index finger at the open place by the wall where Maron and Andrew and the wall men were. “Speaking of!” Boss Harold was giddy, and he took a magnificent gulp from his cup, throwing his head far back. “You’re a learned man, yes?”
“You know how to read? Maron said something about your reading. That’s a rare quality! I’d love to talk about books with you sometime. I’ve my own personal collection.”
The wall men stripped Andrew of his clothes then threw them to the ground and a gasp escaped the audience and the boy shouted and Maron moved to a nearby bucket and reached into the mouth of the container, coming back to a full stand; a whip was coiled around his arm. The Bosses didn’t even look on. The punishment was for the benefit of Boss Harold, and not even he looked on. He jabbered on about how he’d like to speak with me over an old philosophy called Objectivism then he went on about how he’d learned long ago the greatest achievement of man was his own happiness and I listened to the drunk man and when the whip broke skin the first time, I’m sure Andrew felt every bit.
Blood exploded in violent dew off his back and the crack of the whip struck the boy till he couldn’t stand and then several times more. Splatter reached onlookers each time Maron lifted the whip over his head, and it was only once the boy stopped moving that the Boss Sheriff swaggered over to inspect him; Andrew had fallen face down and Maron took his boot to the boy’s side so that the boy rolled onto his back and seconds passed without movement and even Boss Harold quit with his talking. The prone body just lay there and for a moment Andrew looked like the body I’d seen earlier out front of Felina’s. Then the boy spasmed and gasped air and Maron shouted about how he was still alive before giving the toe of his boot to Andrew’s ribs.
“What a show,” said the Bosses—what a show indeed.
The crowd dispersed in clumps, taking back to their jobs or leisure and I left the platform only after agreeing that Objectivism sounded good and Boss Harold laughed and stumbled in pivoting to take on in conversation with the other Bosses and I briefly imagined giving him a nudge, so he’d fall off the stage, but refrained from doing so.
When I met the boy lying in the dirt there, there was me and Dave moved in too and Maron had taken to his station where there was a table by sandbags, and he was engrossed in a game of solitaire; it seemed the man was totally unfazed by the justice he’d dealt. There was a time when that body could’ve been a hero and yet there he was, poisoned.
I called out to the Boss Sheriff, “Ain’t you going to put him back to his cell?”
Without even looking over, Maron swept his mustache with his fingers and waved me off, “Harold was real clear on letting the boy out of custody once it was done.” He lifted his cowboy hat and scratched his head while looking at the cards on the table then he laughed. “He’s a free man. I’ve heard that was your meddlin’ that did it.”
I moved to the boy and snatched up the clothes they ripped from him and Dave, not saying a word with his new mutt by his side, helped me to return some dignity to the boy.
We took him to my small apartment and washed him and tended over him while he lay in my bed.
Gemma came soon after Andrew had been draped in a sheet—she was there in disguise as she’d been earlier and upon me opening the doorway, she began to ask me if the boy was with me. I merely stepped aside, and she rushed to Andrew’s side; if he was aware of her presence, there was no way to tell.
“They killed him.” She’d taken to her knees to be nearer his level. “Oh. Oh, he’s dead.” She touched him and he shivered at the touch. Gemma removed the wrappings of cloth around her head and looked at her sweetie closer and she put a hand to her mouth. “They took his hand!”
“No,” said Dave, “He’s going to live.” The man looked to me and I shrugged. “Yeah,” his voice didn’t sound sure, “He’ll live.”
I moved to the catwalk and Dave came with me, the dog following behind him—the timid mutt looked over the edge of the catwalk to the city below then stepped away and returned to my room. When Dave took up beside me, leaning over the railing, and the sun hit his face just so, he looked exactly like Jackson and maybe that was why when he raised eyebrows then cut his eyes at me with a question—the question was everything and I finally nodded.

2023.06.04 06:50 ss441 Hot Second Floor
Facing an Issue with the second floor being too hot in the summer, wanted to ask you guys to get an opinion on where the issue is.
My AC unit was replaced 2 years ago, it's cold very cold and powerful on the mainfloor and Basement (Where it's not needed) but second floor is extremely hot in the summer days and cold in the winter (I live in Ontario). The vents on the second floor don't get ablot of airflow, but main flow air flow is very strong.
I can't seem to determine what my problem is, or if it's all of them.
- Furnace (whatever the unit that produces airflow) is too old and isn't strong enough to reach second floor, therefore AC and Heat can't reach. I've already cleaned the ducts, changed filters and tried for find the Damper to adjust, couldn't find a damper.
- Attic isn't insulated enough causing high heat in the summer and lose heat in the winter.
- Attic needs a Attic Fan to exhaust out the hot air in the summer (idk if this matters in the winter)
Current'y the only thing I can think of is to install a mini split in the master bedroom and use it at night. I rather fix the underlying issue. Any input is appreciated. Thank you.

2023.06.04 06:03 BurnerAccount871 Strange overheating issue
Hey everyone! About 9 months ago, I purchased a 1998 BMW 318is from an older gentleman and his family. The car sat for about a year and was rarely used, and it ran and drove amazing so they sold it to me for $1,500. The first issue I’ve had is an unusual overheating issue. When I’m driving the temps stay at the middle, but when I shut the car off. First time it happened I was at a drive thru and parked my car to wait for a friend. When I turn the car on, I noticed that it took an extra second for the car to turn over and it also needed some throttle to stay on for a second. I realized that the temps were now on the line between the black and red. I left the car to cool down and drove it home. It was fine the day after, and after some further test driving all seemed well. The second time it happens (about 120 miles later), I was filling up my gas tank. When I cranked it also took an extra second but it didn’t need throttle. It was about one bar higher (so not too bad), but the car idled weirdly as well. I suspect it could be a bad thermostat or a bad impeller. Car blows hot air so it’s not the Heater core. Lines looked great so that wasn’t a big concern. The coolant though was a green coolant, rather than the 50/50 mix of G11 coolant and distilled water. My guess is that it could also be coolant related. I’m going to replace the sensor, thermostat, and pump just as a precaution as well as flush the system a few times so that the system is clean and ready for the coolant it takes. If you have a clue as to what’s going on though PLEASE let me know nonetheless. Thanks!

2023.06.04 05:59 Distinct_Village_87 Looking to cool/have air circulation in a bedroom
| || | submitted by Distinct_Village_87 to hvacadvice [link] [comments]
The floorplan, which is all about 500 square feet:
The window unit (which I have no idea about -- it's an old Kenmore unit with no thermostat, just an on/off switch which I automate using a smart plug and a few temperature sensors) is located outside the bedroom, leaving the bedroom quite hot during the day and night. I'm in south-central Wisconsin, so I'm not expecting crazy hot summers, but I think I could benefit from some sort of AC or at least increased air circulation in the bedroom -- this is my first full summer here, I'm used to having central AC all my life, but I don't have that here. The window unit struggles to get the apartment below 76 (Fahrenheit) or so, and the bedroom is often around 80 degrees during the day now.
I would install a window unit for the bedroom, but I have double-pane sliding windows like this
(that are 48" tall) and a bug screen on the outside that I can't remove. This is an apartment, and while the lease does not prohibit air conditioning units, I don't think it's appropriate to install?
Could a portable unit (like this
) be installed along a vertical window, without drilling into the window?
I currently only have a small little fan
which (IIRC late last summer) wasn't quite as enough as I had hoped, but it was tolerable. Could a fan help? I'm not sure if I can find a powerful enough fan -- and if I was to buy, say, a Dyson, I may as well just buy a portable A/C if that works better?
2023.06.04 05:45 M696rider Hot Air
I need some advice! When I turn the AC on the temperature doesn't change, it stays on max heat. I was told it may be an actuator so I replaced both and still only blows hot. Checked fuses, confirmed compressor is working and charged still notta. I'm determined to figure it before I'm bent over at the shop but I need some suggestions on what to look for next. I hope someone else has dealt with the same situation and can help me out TIA

2023.06.04 04:21 National-Entry-700 How long do i have to wait for window unit AC to unfreeze or thaw?
When do i turn on the AC fan in this process? Because from what i looked online, some say after ice melts, and others say immediately. I think the unit is frozen because i ran it as low as 64 for like a week before the compressor stopped blowing cold air.

Honestly does anyone else think there should be a law nation wide about making sure employees have access to air-conditioning on hot days? Like one of our patrol cars has had a busted AC that blows engine air for the last month and it's getting ridiculous. Or having officers stand out wearing black uniforms directing traffic during busy events with barely any relief from the heat? There seriously has to be something wrong with that

2023.06.04 03:22 TallSmartWaterBottle Shifted to a reality where Skyrim exists + A New Method + Unusual Moments Arriving Back
Hello fellow shifters!
I hope this success story motivates you all and helps bring about great success in your own future experiences. Feel free to read the things you want to read first, no need to read in order. This was the first time that I shifted to a reality and then had unusual experiences upon returning. At least unusual compared to the usual normal for me ranging from food tasting so much better to new habits that stayed with me after leaving my DR. I scripted that would be the case, but never before has it truly been. Keep reading for the method and some notable moments in my DR, and then those unusual moments that followed.
By the way, I've been taking a lot of time to edit this all together as I'm copy and pasting previous comments and posts and my notes because I followed a method but didn't put everything in one place. I'll likely make some edits to fix any confusion following the post.
First off, a new method for you guys that I used successfully for this shift:
Instead of falling asleep like some methods require, I "create" a pocket dimension that I can jump to once I'm done scripting and visualizing the scripts taking place in that reality. Here's the the method I followed for the success I experienced, in a way that you can read and follow it too. 1. Relax and center yourself by breathing deeply and visualizing your energy, your essence all of your energy. 2. Next, visualize you're outside your energy, but that you're not your energy, you're just watching it.
There's quite a few ways I've learned to do this, to separate your consciousness from your body ranging from seeing yourself outside your body; to visualizing you're outside this universe watching yourself in 3rd person on a screen and there being a lot of other screens which are other possible realities; to the technique in my post. 3. Visualize you're in a void of sorts, you're outside this universe in a place where all universes are visible. 4. Next, visualize an egg. And in that egg is another reality that you can script however you desire with intentions or visualizing what you script. 5. Visualize your DR is on a movie screen that you are editing and rewriting how it plays out with you scripts and visualizing them all taking place in that reality within the movie screen.
I visualized the script taking place in my desired reality instead of in the egg. Later I basically copied the reality in the movie screen to the egg. This step is optional, but it makes it easier to visualize personally and may help you too. 5. Script what would happen once you get back.
For me, I visualized a second movie screen and every time I visualized the script taking place, I saw the moment I left the DR and went "back" to my CR. However, technically the CR you return to should be a slightly different reality upon arrival, at the very least least in the sense that in the CR you arrive back, you brain contains vivid memories. For example, I scripted my habits and such were to change and match what they came to be in my DR. 6. Visualize the movie screen that held my DR now exists in the egg, visible in an egg shape. Visualize that it is literally a gateway to and from that reality. 7. Finish up your scripts, and visualize the scripts taking place in your desired reality, within the egg/movie (whichever is easier, but knowing they are both the exact same reality.)
For me it took 1-3 hours of scripting and visualizing, but afterwards, I visualized the shift from my CR to my DR, every second scripted to be 10 years. 8. Set the time constraint such as anything from no time here passing, to one second being any number of years.
The first few times I shifted to a Pocket Dimension, I scripted no time would pass but immediately I would have memories from the time in the DR. In this Skyrim DR, I scripted every 1 second that passed here, 10 years would pass there. Ten seconds came and went quickly, and memories flooded my mind of my time there. I've spent at least 5-10 hours the past few days remembering my 100 years there, and there's a vast amount I've yet to take the time to revisit. While remembering the time, it truly feels like remembering moments in my life from the past. 9. Visualize your consciousness entering your DR. There's no need to sleep or for your body to be asleep.
Upon taking enough time to visualize and script to the point you know it will work, and you've seen moments in your visualization of you in you DR, time will pass as you intend for it to and your memories should come flooding back, even if you have to take time to remember them. 10. Take the time to remember your moments in your DR.
It may feel like the creative side of your brain is just making stuff up at first, but the moments it may feel as if it's making up feel real and seem like true memories. That's because they are real, did exist in that reality, and are true memories.
I lived 100 years and those 10 seconds went by fast it seemed but I have vivid memories from the last 100 years while in this DR.
And so too can you do this too, and I hope by performing what I describe to you you have the same amount of success as myself.
Now to the experiences:
Most know the "Hey you, you're finally awake" scene of Skyrim, and I scripted everything would play out like normal Skyrim besides the other scripts listed in the comments below.
I scripted when I came back I'd take with me my DR's subconscious and consciousness 100% and I've noticed many unusual occurrences (unusual for me in this CR at least) upon arrival back here to this CR:
- I came into the world beginning with hunting to make money. I would hunt deer and occasionally (and increasingly successfully) shoot them in the head or heart and would skin them, bag their leather and meat and sell what I didn't use for crafting and cooking.
- I ate a lot of Venison and bulked up, got big and muscular and made bigger and better armor to go with it. Heavy armor like iron was too much at first, but eventually was able to wear Ebony armor, and then Daedric near my last 30 years or so there.
- Scripted Bandoliers existed, and bought and learned how to make them from Adriana who I called Avenicci at the Forge in Whiterun, who agreed to a deal where she'd teach me how to blacksmith/leatherwork in exchange for materials. I learned how to make my own clothes, armor, weapons, and tools from her.
- Became leader of each of the guilds after scripting I would: Thieves Guild, Companions, Dark Brotherhood, Bards College, College of Winterhold.
- Scripted my spiritual teacher from another DR would be a teacher at the College of Winterhold. I spent countless years studying with him, learning from him, reading books from other realities, and the last place I visited before coming back was his classroom.
- I remember getting shot through the jaw with an arrow, it was the most excruciating pain I've ever experienced, by remembering in this CR I felt pain and tightness in my jaw. I drank a health potion mixed with blood gushing down my throat, ran towards the bandit so he could kill me and got stabbed in the neck. Woke up as scripted in the nearest Inn, with no damage and all my stuff.
- I had a wife, some of us know the woman in Riften, part of the thieves guild, Saphire. Well in this DR, she was an amazing person under the cold persona she displays in the game. I called her Saph after we started dating.
- She would always call me Hon and I'd either call her Saph or honey. I met her in Riften and after getting to know the real her, I fell in love and she fell in love too. We got married when I was 29 and she was 32. We met when I was 20 and she was 23, and started dating when I was 25 and she was 28. I'm not 100% on those ages, but it's a rough estimate because it was almost 100 years ago for me in terms of memory.
- She turned 40 and mentioned I haven't aged a day since I was 35. She asked me why, and I told her along the lines of "I've been wanting to tell you this for the longest time, but I've never been sure how. I feel it's about time" she asked if I was gay and if I had some magic anti aging from a secret lover in the College of Winterhold lmao since I would visit there a lot.
- I told her no and ended up easing into telling her I'm from another universe but that she is real and exists in this universe and isn't just an NPC. Of course she asked, "NPC?" And, to skip some dialogue, I told her that she was a person and wasn't just a character in a game. She took it surprisingly well, like way better than I expected and told me this:
- When she was 40 and I was mentally 37 but physically 35 Saph told me to script her as a younger age but with all her memories that she had at the time I left this universe.
- We adopted two kids Hroar in Riften and Lucia in Whiterun and our first house together was Breezehome. I worked on Lakeview Manor, building everything by hand as scripted that I would have to (scripted no menus), and eventually built the main hall, a kitchen, children bedrooms, and a library/watchtower in the back by hand with help from Marcurio and Lydia after Marcurio died, and some help from Saph for gathering resources. I became Thane of Falkreath and got help from the House Carl there too, and made her my Steward.
- Before leaving to go back to this CR, after being there for 100 years, I visited my spiritual teacher. He showed me a mirror, and seeing myself for the first time in a long time besides in reflections in water, I was ripped and huge. He said I should take off my clothes and he'll look away, and I looked like Arnold Schwarzenegger but more tan and with a 35 yr old version of my face.
- I had the strongest urge to brush my teeth with my electric toothbrush I've ever had - I enjoyed brushing my teeth so much as if I just hit a really good joint (I haven't smoked in almost 2 months tho so drugs aren't the cause). The euphoria was unreal - I seemingly manifested an opportunity to garden for my family even tho I've always hated gardening and they know that. I loved every moment of it and I was getting flashback type memories seeing myself working on my farm in Skyrim, vividly seeing my leather clothes and my surroundings while looking down at my regular jeans, gardening - I never have let myself garden in this CR to the point of sweating, I just hated it that much, but I was sweating beads down my face and on my lip and didn't go for a water break once like I used to do every few minutes before I would just go in the AC for a while - Before going to bed last night upon writing this, I had a memory of me doing 10 pushups every time before I'd sleep. I wasn't gonna do it because I was too tired, but I couldn't resist the memories just kept playing in my hand, and dropped down next to my bed and did 10 pushups, and that was the fastest I've fallen asleep in maybe over a year in this CR. I still remember how easily I'd fall asleep in Skyrim even though it's counterintuitive because you'd expect the blood pumping would keep me awake - The evening of coming back here, I sat outside for 1-3 hours enjoying the dusk and then the night. I NEVER sit outside for more than a few minutes, I've always hated the bugs and the heat outside. I'm sitting outside and have been for over an hour writing this 2 days later. Yesterday I spent a few hours just enjoying the night sky and the peacefulness outside. Each time I spend time outside past few days I remember and reminisce over the good times and the memories of sitting on my porch outside in Skyrim (I'm sweating and completely unusually for me, I don't mind one bit) - When I got back I showered and it was about just as euphoric as brushing my teeth was. I felt so much gratitude to have a fast stream of hot water and to not have to bathe under a waterfall or in a (heated) bath as I have many memories of doing both of, it was amazing and serene to wash myself with soap - I always use a scrubber when I shower in this CR but counterintuitively I used my hands for the first time in over a year. I don't know why, but it may have been to fully feel myself clean myself, not too sure about this one. Definitely scripting soap in next time, I used scents I made that were basically soap but I didn't have true soaps of any kind - also upon arrival back I went and walked on the grass barefoot in my backyard yard, which I never did because I hated the idea of bugs crawling on me. After sitting on a stump my bare feet on the grass, an ant crawled on my food and I didn't even kill it. I just brushed it off even though I always would kill them. It didn't even bother me one bit; I felt so at peace, calm, and still. - Unlike most of my memories, I can remember entire conversations for the most part in my DR even ones from 80+ years ago. But then there's still some things that are faded and I have to focus and try harder to remember if I can manage to. - I always bring a lot of stuff with me between my family's house and my place, at the very least a phone cord. But I packed lightly without thinking, bringing only my keys, wallet, phone, and earbuds. I later realized it was unusual for me and remembered what I learned in Skyrim, to pack lightly only the most important things. I always used to bring a cord at the least even though there's one over there, no clue why. - normal things feel nostalgic, like the taste of yogurt I used to eat every day and the smell of my house even - washing dishes is a piece of cake, it used to be something I put off or dreaded a bit, and now it's easy, I remember all the years I would wash dishes in the Inn before I bought it and in my houses - I'm realizing now that food tastes so much better as if I'm high on weed. At least processed foods like yogurt and granola bars so far, but it's very noticeable and it makes sense though. If you were to go 100 years without eating anything processed and you try it again and your body doesn't reject it, the amount of sugar and sweeteners and random other tasty junk is most likely going to taste a lot better than eating vegetables and meat and non pasteurized dairy for all those years. - I no longer feel the need I was unaware of before to have almost constant distraction. No matter what I used to be doing, I was either on a device or doing something like reading or working out. The only time I used to just think is in the shower or accidentally while meditating. I'm realizing that all changed since I came back. - The time I've been spending outside, at least 6 hours the past 2-3 days of writing this, most of it I'm not on my phone but instead just thinking, and I feel peace while thinking unlike normally. Even when not outside I've spent hours inside just thinking and looking back and remembering my lifetime in Skyrim - I've realized not everything needs a (long) response. However, unlike the times I've been more quiet in the past it's not because I don't have the energy to talk. For example, when my family was telling me what they needed done outside, my responses were either silence but eye contact and nodding or 1-3 word responses. I believe it's because previously I would fill the air with words because I was uncomfortable with silence - upon coming back I'm a lot more honest/blunt as in I don't feel a need to sugar coat my answer if I'm asked a question. - I have more confidence to share my experiences but I have a newfound skill of articulating them without sounding crazy (so far). For example, after debating on telling a member of my family (who didn't know about reality shifting and was skeptical) about shifting to another reality for 100 years, I warmed up to it. For the first part of it she was worried about me, understandably because she's a psychologist. Unexpectedly, she shared her own spiritual experiences, of which I didn't know she had any including her memories of a past life as a little boy and she's known how to sail her whole life because of those memories. She and I both agreed that shifting is closely related to other spiritual things like intuition and past lives in the sense that science can't explain them yet but they still exist. This was also after telling her that I spent 100 years in another reality, but I didn't get to the part where it was a reality where the events of Skyrim take place and exist. But I did tell her almost everything else including I had a wife and 2 kids. - In this CR, a girl I hadn't spoken to in years drove by as I was picking up some leftover branches from earlier's gardening outside the day before writing this. That was the first time in my life I talked to a woman smoothly without stuttering, got her phone number and her Instagram, and talked to her in my regular deeper voice instead of raising it higher pitch accidentally at all like I talk to my mom or when I'm really excited or when I'm flirting with a girl (in the past).
I told that member of my family, and she suggested it was possibly because my years as a married man before I said it myself. I was hoping she'd say something like that because I was thinking it had to do with my experience in this DR, so it's cool she felt so too.
It was indeed quite surprising to see noticeable changes in who I am: my habits, thoughts, mindset, and speech. I know that was the plan and that I scripted it to be so, but to see it happen still brings about a new question: how much can these aftereffects be influenced and how much of a positive change can each of us make in ourselves with scripts for what happens when we come back.
Anyway, I hope this is of help in inspiration and motivation for many of you out there, and that my experiences and method make a profound impact in even just one of you guy's lives.
I wish you the best of success and much love,
A fellow reality shifter

Plot summary from Super summary: https://www.supersummary.com/ill-give-you-the-sun/summary/ The story opens as Noah is being chased by two older neighborhood boys who regularly bully him. He manages to escape and make his way home. At dinner, Dianna, his mother, announces that she has a message from his dead grandmother, Grandma Sweetwine. She thinks that Noah and his twin sister Jude should apply to California School of the Arts. Noah is thrilled, though Jude and Benjamin, their father, are not. Dianna and Benjamin argue as the twins discuss Grandma’s message in the adjoining room. Noah tries to cheer her up, suggesting that Grandma thought of CSA because of the beautiful sand sculptures of flying women that Jude has been making down at the beach. In preparation for the CSA application, Dianna begins to take the twins to art museums. She announces a drawing contest between the two, but is so awed by Noah’s work, she calls off the contest even before looking at Jude’s art. Jealous of Noah’s talent and the attention it draws from their mother, Jude’s relationship with Noah begins to sour. She stops going to museums and begins to hang out at the beach instead. Noah believes that if Dianna ever saw Jude’s sand sculptures, everything would change; although he has taken pictures of Jude’s sculptures, he does not show them to anyone. Over the summer, Noah begins to visit the CSA campus to watch a live drawing class conducted there. During one of the sessions, the model, Oscar, catches Noah practicing sketches outside the window of the class. Oscar is dismissed later that session for being under the influence and he stops modeling at CSA. When Jude sees Noah’s drawing of Oscar, she is so taken by it, that she trades Noah the sun, stars, trees, and the ocean in exchange for it, as part of a game they have played since childhood in which they divvy up the universe. Noah also meets and befriends Brian, a new boy who has moved in next door. Brian is the star pitcher on his boarding school team and is also deeply interested in science and astronomy. Noah is immediately attracted to him, and the boys begin taking rock collecting walks together. Brian becomes popular with the neighborhood girls, and for the first time in Noah’s life, he is cool by association. Noah blows off Jude when she attempts to reconcile with him and starts spending all his time with Brian and others. Jude is furious at Noah for stealing her friends, and at a party, she manipulates a game of Seven Minutes in Heaven so that she and Brian go into the closet together. A distraught Noah leaves the party and tears up every single sketch he has made of Brian, as well as the one of Oscar which he gave to Jude, before deleting every picture he has taken of Jude’s sand sculptures. One afternoon, Noah makes his way over to Guillermo Garcia’s studio, a famous sculptor whom Oscar once told Noah about. He watches Guillermo and his work from afar, and on his way back, runs into Dianna parked surprisingly close to the studio. Over the next couple of months, Dianna begins to act strangely, always absent-minded and lost in thought. She even forgets Benjamin’s birthday. Dianna and Benjamin eventually tell the twins that Benjamin is moving out for a while. The twins watch Benjamin leave and confide their fears and worries in each other; Jude also assures Noah that nothing happened between her and Brian, and they reconcile. Brian comes back to visit over Christmas break, and Noah goes for a walk with him where they finally kiss. Brian wants to keep their relationship a secret, as he worries it will end his baseball career. He has been harassed for his sexual orientation in the past. However, Dianna walks in on the boys masturbating together one day, and a terrified Brian immediately ends things with Noah. Not wanting Dianna to tell anyone else, Noah follows her out of the house believing that she is going to meet Benjamin. Instead, he sees Dianna meeting and kissing Guillermo. Distraught and heartbroken, when Noah runs into Brian with one of the girls on the way home, he reveals Brian’s secret to her. Back home, Dianna tells Noah that she is going to marry Guillermo; as she leaves, Noah yells at her that he hates her. Dianna’s car veers off a cliff, and she dies in the resulting crash, and a guilt-ridden Noah lies to Benjamin and Jude that Dianna was on her way to reconcile with Benjamin. Noah also visits Guillermo and repeats the same lie, blaming Guillermo for Dianna’s death. Two weeks after Dianna’s death, Noah jumps off Devil’s Drop, a high cliff overlooking the beach and almost drowns. Jude pulls him out and revives him. Upset and furious with her brother for almost abandoning her, Jude does not mail Noah’s CSA application along with hers. Two years later, Jude is a student at CSA; when Noah didn’t get an acceptance, he destroyed all his work and stopped making art completely. Jude was pressured into losing her virginity to an older boy the night Dianna died and believes that this invited bad luck and led to Dianna’s death. Following this, Jude cuts off all her hair and exclusively dresses in drab clothing, in a self-inflicted “boy boycott.” She also obsessively follows the dictates of Grandma Sweetwine’s “Bible,” a handwritten collections of beliefs and superstitions about luck. Jude is regularly visited by Grandma Sweetwine’s ghost; while Dianna does not appear to her, Jude believes that Dianna is responsible for the fact that all of Jude’s clay work at CSA ends up mysteriously shattered. Jude’s mentor, Sandy, tells her that she was accepted at CSA because of the pictures of the sand sculptures that came in with her application. Jude is confused, as she had not sent in any pictures and didn’t even know any existed. Now, however, she is in danger of losing her spot at CSA, because of all the breakage in the kiln. Jude decides to work in stone so that Dianna cannot shatter her art; she plans on creating a sculpture that will impress Dianna and force her to forgive Jude. Sandy directs her to Guillermo but warns her that Guillermo has not mentored or taught in over two years after something tragic happened to him. On her way to meet and convince Guillermo, Jude stops by a church where she runs into Oscar. He seems strangely familiar, but she can’t quite place him. Oscar flirts with Jude and takes pictures of her before leaving. At Guillermo’s studio, Jude encounters a haggard and drunk Guillermo who asks her to go away; upon repeated knocking, Jude is surprised to see Oscar open the door, but he, too, turns her away. On her way home Jude receives a message from one of Noah’s friends that he plans to cliff-dive off Devil’s Drop. Jude hides and waits for him, planning to save him if necessary, but as has been happening recently, when Noah jumps, he miraculously slows down before hitting the water. Noah and Benjamin find Jude looking up Guillermo and his work on the internet, and both seem shaken. Jude later finds that all her bookmarks about Guillermo have been deleted from her laptop. Jude goes to Guillermo’s studio again, watching him work through a window. Guillermo catches her watching him and apprehends her while she tries to run away. He invites Jude in, and seeing her desperation to work in stone, agrees to mentor her. Jude begins to work with Guillermo; before the sculpture of Dianna, however, she realizes that she wants to make one of her and Noah instead. During her time with Guillermo, Jude also grows closer to Oscar. She learns that Guillermo saved Oscar’s life, taking him in and helping him get clean some years ago. Oscar confesses his attraction to Jude; however, the intensity of his own feelings scares him, and he begins to retreat from Jude, going on to kiss another girl. Jude decides to try and make things right with Noah. She Googles Brian and finds that he is now mildly famous for being a high-performing, openly-gay baseball player. Jude emails Brian a link to a message Noah consistently posts on a website called Lost Connections, asking Brian to forgive him and meet him again. Jude also emails her mentor at CSA asking for a meeting with her and Noah; she decides to give up her spot for Noah. Before she can confess the truth to Noah, however, she finds out that he is on the verge of jumping off the highest, most dangerous cliff on the beach. Jude arrives in time and manages to save Noah along with Oscar’s help. A drunk Noah explains whenever he jumps, Dianna always saves him at the end, slowing his fall. Oscar helps Jude get Noah home; he visits her in her room later that night, apologizing for his earlier behavior before kissing her. Jude finally recognizes him as the face in Noah’s painting. However, Oscar catches a glimpse of a family picture on Jude’s dresser, and leaves abruptly when he realizes that Jude is Dianna’s daughter. When Jude shows Guillermo the sketches of Dianna she has made for the sculpture, he comes to the same realization and tells her he cannot mentor her anymore. Noah and Oscar arrive at the studio as well, and the truth about Dianna is revealed. An overwhelmed Jude leaves along with Noah. Noah apologizes to Jude for having lied to her and Benjamin, and the two grieve Dianna together. Jude also confesses to what she did about Noah’s CSA application, and Noah is elated that he was not actually rejected. Noah shows Jude a wall he has been secretly painting at an abandoned construction site; he does not care about art school anymore, having recently rediscovered the magic in art for its own sake. Noah and Jude tell Benjamin the truths about Dianna and CSA, and he forgives them both graciously. They also discover that Guillermo is the one who sent the pictures of Jude’s sand sculptures to CSA. Jude believes that they are all destined to be in each other’s lives and wants to continue working with Guillermo. Noah reaches out to Brian directly, and the two reconcile. The book ends with Benjamin realizing and accepting Noah’s sexuality when he sees the boys holding hands together.

Quotes: About the invisible museum (the invisible museum is how Noah envisions the paintings he wants to bring to life, some do and some don’t, but it describes his thought process which I find super cool):
- One of his arms is choked around my neck, the other braced across my torso like a seat belt. He’s bare-chested, straight off the beach, and the heat of him is seeping through my T-shirt. His coconut suntan lotion’s filling my nose, my whole head—the strong smell of the ocean too, like he’s carrying it on his back . . . Zephyr dragging the tide along like a blanket behind him . . . That would be good, that would be it (PORTRAIT: The Boy Who Walked Off with the Sea)—but not now, Noah, so not the time to mind-paint this cretin. I snap back, taste the salt on my lips, remind myself I’m about to die—
- Because I can see people’s souls sometimes when I draw them, I know the following: Mom has a massive sunflower for a soul so big there’s hardly any room in her for organs. Jude and me have one soul between us that we have to share: a tree with its leaves on fire. And Dad has a plate of maggots for his.
- His soul might be a sun. I’ve never met anyone who had the sun for a soul.
- “I paint in my head,” I tell him. “I was the whole time.” I’ve never told anyone I do this, not even Jude, and I have no idea why I’m telling him. I’ve never let anyone into the invisible museum before. “What were you painting?”“You.”
- In my mind, I can draw Brian with lightning.
- I watch him as he razors through the crowd, nodding his head to guys, returning the smiles of girls, like he belongs. How is it he belongs everywhere? (PORTRAIT: The Boy with All the Keys in the World with All the Locks)
- I close my eyes and drown in color, open them and drown in light because billions and billions of buckets of light are being emptied on our heads from above. This is it. This is freaking everything. This is the painting painting itself.
About Jude and Noah:
- I don’t know how this can be but it can : A painting is both exactly the same and entirely different every single time you look at it. That’s the way it is between Jude and me now.
- I remember how Jude gave up the sun and stars and oceans for my drawing of him. I’m going to steal it back from her. I’m going to take everything from her. If she were drowning, I’d hold her head under.
- And most important, I don’t worry when I come home one day and find a note on the kitchen table written by Jude asking Mom to come down to the beach to see a sculpture she’s building out of sand. I don’t worry that I take the note and bury it at the bottom of the garbage can. I don’t worry, not really, even though it makes my stomach hurt to do it, no not my stomach, it makes my soul hurt that I could do it, that I actually did it. I should’ve been worrying. I should’ve been worrying a lot.
- [...]and when he revived, the second I knew he was okay, I slapped him as hard as I could across the face. Because how could he have done this? How could he have chosen to leave me here all alone?
- Noah had stopped breathing. So there were these moments when I was in life without him. For the first time. Not even in the womb were we apart. Terror doesn’t come close to describing it. Fury doesn’t come close. Heartbreak, no. There is no way to describe it. He wasn’t there. He wasn’t with me anymore.
- I took from my brother the thing he wanted most in the world. What kind of person does that?
- That’s when it occurs to me that maybe the rocks are weighing him down so he doesn’t rise into the air . . .
- I try to prick the balloon that’s lifting me into the air by telling myself I shouldn’t be this excited to see a guy I only met a day ago. Even if that guy carries the galaxy around in a bag!
- I’m thinking the reason I’ve been so quiet all these years is only because Brian wasn’t around yet for me to tell everything to.
- I don’t worry that when Brian and I are alone in the woods or up on his roof or in his living room watching baseball (whatever), he puts up an electrical fence between us, and never once do I risk death by brushing against it, but when we’re in public, like at The Spot, the fence vanishes, and we become clumsy magnets, bumping and knocking into each other, grazing hands, arms, legs, shoulders, tapping the other on the back, even occasionally the leg, for no good reason except that it’s like swallowing lightning.
- I don’t worry that when I get back to my seat, it all starts again, but this time our legs find each other immediately and he grabs my hand beneath the armrest and squeezes it and we electrocute and die.
- “I love you,” I say to him, only it comes out, “Hey.”“So damn much,” he says back, only it comes out, “Dude.”
Grandma Sweetwine’s bible:
- “You have to see the miracles for there to be miracles, Jude.” She used to say this a lot. It’s the very first passage she wrote in the bible. I’m not a miracle-seer. The very last passage she wrote in the bible was: A broken heart is an open heart.
- “I will bathe in vinegar, down some raw eggs, and start looking for a wasp nest ASAP to put on my head.”“I do not understand this,”he says. “To reverse the leanings of the heart. Ancient family wisdom.”He laughs. “Ah. Very good. In my family, we just suffer.”
- I went to Grandma’s bible, desperate, but it didn’t matter how many rosehips I put in my tea, how much lapis lazuli I hid under my pillow, I couldn’t get rid of the rage.
- Hot guys should be forced into footie pajamas.
- No woman can resist a man who has tidal waves and earthquakes beneath the skin.
- “When I want to ask you to abandoned buildings or kiss those lips of yours or stare into your otherworldly eyes or imagine what you look like under all those baggy drab clothes you’re always hiding in or ravish you on some grimy floor like I’m desperate to this very minute, I’ll just bugger off on my Hippity Hop. Deal?” He holds out his hand. “Friends. Just friends.” Talk about mixed signals; he’s like a roller coaster that talks.
- I’m filled with something I can only describe as recognition. Not because he looks familiar on the outside this time, but because he feels familiar on the inside.
- I blew it. I did. I should’ve kissed him. One kiss, then I could die. Well, wait, no freaking way, if I’m going to die, I want to do more than kiss. Way way more.
- Because that’s what all this is about. Nothing else. We wish with our hands, that’s what we do as artists.
- Is there something you need in the world that only your two hands can create?
- “It’s okay to be addicted to beauty,” Mom says, all dreamy . “Emerson said ‘Beauty is God’s handwriting.’”
- What slumbers in the heart, slumbers in the stone.
- “If only the heart listen to reason, right?” He puts an arm around me. “C’mon, what is bad for the heart is good for art. The terrible irony of our lives as artists.” Our lives as artists.
- “I don’t think you are okay,”he says. “Sometimes you work the stone, sometimes the stone works you. I think today the rock win.”

I posted a few weeks ago (or maybe a month) when I was pulling the dash to swap the HVAC box with all of the doors in it. I got the damn thing back together, dash back in, all the stuff under the hood back together. I had to buy a new liquid line (AC condenser to evap core) because I had to cut the old line where it attached to the evap. So THEN get to the point where I need to connect the AC liquid line where it connects to the condenser. Threaded that in about 3-4 threads, then used a wrench. Snugged it up, and the line was still loose. Unthreaded it (which was hard as shit to do) and seen it was cross-threaded. Obviously messed up both the condenser and line, so I ordered a new one of each after I said a few words. Next week, I get down there to replace them both, and do THE SAME SHIT AGAIN.
So I get the 3rd line and 2nd replacement condenser in, recharge the system, and have room temp air. After some searching, dumbass me forgot to put an orifice tube in the system. I bought a new one of those and a new drier because they're cheap enough. Now, I'm getting around 46* blowing out of the vents, which is cooler than this truck has ever blown. I think it's now the coldest AC in all of my vehicles.
I'm posting this because I'm finally happy this 1-1.5 month project is done. I'm also posting this in hopes that if anyone who reads this ever works on any AC lines/fittings, MAKE SURE YOU THREAD THEM BY HAND. Like more than 3-4 thread apparently. I figured once those 3-4 were on, I was golden but man... what a headache.
Happy Saturday to you all. I'm going to enjoy some drinks after this closure! https://preview.redd.it/kwy1bq32dw3b1.jpg?width=1808&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=4ee2657e3d66beaf49eb04d9d808b0001350c2ac

| || |
Thought I'd share in case others are looking for ideas. submitted by jeezooz to NZTrees [link] [comments]
Aluminium profiles from Bunnings, wiring from Jaycars and COB (circuit on board) LEDs from Aliexpress.
The space is tiny (500 x 1100) so to get the air moving I went for a bare frame doubling as heatsink. Open COBs for improved cooling. They run reasonably hot and on average one burns out every grow
This is a flowering space and in winter I normally run six 50W 3200K LED units. At the moment there are two extra seedlings so another 30W 5000K LED was added. In summer I run reduced power or 12/12.
The light looks rough but does the job for me. When the AC Infinity Evo 3 comes out I will probably upgrade though.
2023.06.04 02:17 OnetimeRocket13 When my car disconnects from the battery, my AC has trouble staying cool. What is going on and how do I fix it?
I've had this issue ever since I got my car a few years ago. I drive a 2000 Ford Taurus SE. When I first got the car, the battery was already pretty old, so it eventually started running out of juice and would require me to jumpstart it until I could get around to getting a new one. Several times when I would jumpstart the car, the AC would reset to 75 degrees with the fans turned all the way down. Most of the time, this would also cause the AC to just not work unless I was trying to heat my car.
Right now, I am having more issues with my battery that I just haven't gotten around to fixing (I have shitty terminals that really need replacing, so every so often the connection will be bad and I'll have to deal with a temp solution I have (i.e., jiggle the wires around a little)). It happened again today, and the AC wouldn't blow cold air. After fiddling around with it for a bit, I decided to check the compressor, and saw that it was still running. I then turned the temp as high as it would go and then gradually brought it back down, which fixed it.
I know that I can pretty much fix this issue by not being lazy and actually fixing it, but I'm still curious to know what is going on and if I should be concerned. This only happens when the AC system loses power, and it is not consistent (this is the first time the AC has not blown cold air after losing power in several months).

2023.06.04 01:27 Nanamil Replacing freon or whole unit (Central AC)
My AC is working but not blowing cold air. A HVAC tech came by and told me that my AC is using R22 freon and is old (It's probably like 20 years old). It's missing freon and would need more R22 in order to work properly.
He gave me 2 options:
Add more R22 (around $900 + labor, it's 23oz) OR replace the unit with a new one (around $5k all included, labor, unit, and all the repiping/soldering, cleaning...).
Replacing the unit seems to make more sense in the long run than using an old unit with old R22 freon. The replacement unit is a Maxi air Classic 24 2T (The old unit is a crusty Aitons Comfort Aire RAQ 1024-1).
I think that make sense, but I just want to confirm with neutral HVAC people before replacing it.
For info, my home is a 2 story, basement house with 3 bedrooms.
Thank you !

2023.06.04 01:23 xtremexavier15 TSROTI 3 (pt 2)
The episode resumed on a shot of a large patch of ice and snow, a snow machine blowing in the background next to a snowy slope. The camera panned left onto the two shivering teams, with Scarlett and Trent clinging to their respective team flags.
"Greetings, ice teens!" Chris greeted as he and Chef rode up on the back of a snowmobile wearing thick parkas. "Cold enough for you?" He chuckled as the shot cut in closer and panned back across the freezing campers, Chris adding "I'll take that as a yes," when it reached the end of the line.
"Time for part two of today's challenge!" the host announced. "'Capture the Snow Fort.' To win, you either have to demo the enemy's fort," he directed their attention to his left, the shot cutting over to a rather poorly constructed snow castle, "or capture their flag and bring it back to your own fort." He directed their attention in the opposite direction, to a much nicer-looking snow fortress. "Rats won the first part, so they get first dibs on the forts," Chris explained.
"Obviously we're taking the castle," Leshawna opened as the camera zoomed in on the Rats. "We're not fools."
"It could be a trick," Scott said. "Nice on the outside means nasty on the inside, but let's just go with the castle."
"I hope there's a fireplace there," Geoff shivered before they went to their fort.
A clock wipe transitioned the scene to inside the Rats' fort, a pleasant tune playing as it was shown to be just as nice-looking on the inside, if rather bare. Aside from the campers and their flag, all that was inside was a pile of snowballs and a shovel stuck into the ground.
"Great idea to pick this snow fort over the other one," Geoff told his teammates.
"I could've made us go to the shack so we could lose faster, but I don't want anyone catching on to my strategy just yet," Scott clarified.
The scene cut to the Maggots' shack, which was just as ugly on the inside as it was out. It was as bare otherwise as the Rats' castle, though, with only a shovel and pile of snowballs.
"Wow, it's almost as depressing as our chances of winning!" Dave said dryly as he and his teammates looked around in disappointment.
"On the plus side, at least we're warm in here," Scarlett added.
"Our fort isn't the best, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try our hardest in the challenge," DJ tried to stay positive.
"Listen up, players," Chris called over a megaphone as the scene cut to Chef carrying a lawn chair past a blazing fire pit. The host was already seated in a chair of his own, and his assistant soon joined him. "Here's how it works! Use the shovel in each fort to fire your collection of Mystery Snowballs," the eyes of the six Rats immediately turned to their embedded shovel, and Leshawna grabbed the handle, "which you can fire at each other's forts."
"Awesome! I took out my uncle's left eye with a meatball this way!" Scott said as he drew the shovel's handle back an inch and released it with a twang.
"Why are they called Mystery Balls?" Molly called out from the Maggots' castle while Scarlett tested how stable their shovel was.
"Because they all inflict major damage!" Chris answered. "Thanks to the secret weapon hidden inside each ball." The Maggots were shown looking at their pile of snowballs, the shot zooming in as one of them made an odd noise and shook. "Some, will damage you," the host added, "so choose wisely."
"Each team has to elect a Captain to command, and conquer," Chris continued. "Starting...now!"
"I'll be the Team Captain," Scarlett immediately said back at the Maggots' base. "Any objections?"
"None from me," Anne Maria shook her head.
"I don't have a problem with it," Katie added shortly after.
"I don't want to be in charge," Molly finished.
"That was unsurprisingly easy," Scarlett said. "If you want to be a leader, it's preferable not to push your authority to the max or act condescendingly. Why do you think many leaders are detested by their peers?"
"What's the plan, Scar?" DJ asked the captain.
"Well," Scarlett said, "I was thinking that maybe we should keep some of the more physically gifted back here in case we need to fend off the Rats."
The camera zoomed in on Dave. "Who stays and who goes?" he asked.
"Molly, Dave, and Katie, go and take their flag," Scarlett declared. "DJ, Anne Maria, and I will hold them off and try to hit their fort with the mystery balls."
Anne Maria smiled at the plan. "Not a bad idea. Let's do that then," she said as Dave and Molly ran out of the castle, leaving the rest behind.
"Good luck out there," DJ told Katie with a smile.
"Thanks," Katie said with a smile of her own. "Make sure to shovel lots of snow onto our fort."
"Why?" DJ asked her.
"Just to make sure that the fort doesn't melt instantly," Katie answered the question before leaving.
"I'm captain. Live with it," Scott declared as the footage cut to him and the Rats. "B, Trent, and I stay here. Geoff, Leshawna, and Sammy, capture their maggot-y flag."
"Shouldn't someone else take my place?" Leshawna countered. "I'm not really the best at running."
"I'll take your spot then," Trent finalized the plan. "I want to prove myself since I'm new here."
"Aaand, GO!" Chris suddenly called from off-screen.
The scene flashed outside as Geoff, Sammy, and Trent ran out onto the ice. "Let's do this!" Trent called as he ran ahead.
"Those Maggot dudes are going down!" Geoff declared.
The shot cut up to the bright and sizzling sun, then down to Chef and Chris – who had changed back into their normal clothing, with the addition of a straw hat for Chef. Both were drinking some kind of coconut drink. "Hurry up," Chris warned the unseen campers, "my ice is melting! And your forts will too if the sun gets much higher!"
Trent was keeping a steady pace until he suddenly slipped on the ice, causing him to slide through.
"I've never gone sleddin' like this," Trent slid past Geoff and Sammy on his stomach. "See you!" He eventually came to a full stop, but the ice beneath him started to crack and soon broke entirely, plunging the boy into frigid water. He promptly bobbed back to the surface, still in his pose and frozen in a block of ice.
Chef started cackling hysterically, and the shot cut back to him and Chris watching from the sidelines. "Forgot to tell ya!" the host called out. "No Man's Land is more like No Man's Water!"
The camera quick-panned back to the castle, where Leshawna and Scott were discussing who should do what.
"Here's what should happen," Scott started. "I'll supply the snowballs while you rocket them to the Maggots' fort."
During this, B went to the other side of the castle and saw a tall block of ice. Hatching a plan, he grabbed an ice pick from his jacket and started to poke on the ice.
"Are you sure about that?" Leshawna continued talking. "You took out your uncle's eye. I don't see why you can do the same thing here."
"If you say so," Scott held up a snowball, until it blew up in his face, making him cough for a while.
"Leshawna has to go too," Scott noted. "She's very headstrong, and that could mess up my plan."
Scott fired a snowball at the Maggots' snow fort, causing part of it to crumble.
"You hit a bullseye with that one," Leshawna quipped.
"Maggots, now is the time to attack!" Scarlett ordered inside the fort.
"I'll make sure to guard the flag," Anne Maria got in front of the team's flag.
The scene cut to Molly racing across the ice at top speed, Katie and Dave following a little ways behind her.
"How are you feeling right now, Dave?" Katie focused her attention on Dave.
"If I'm being honest, Katie, I would rather stay back and defend the fort," Dave told Katie.
The ice beneath them began to crack, and soon broke entirely plunging the two Maggots into frigid water. They promptly bobbed back to the surface, still in their poses and frozen in a block of ice.
"What?!" Molly said in shock after looking at her teammates conditions. "Hold on. I'll come back for you after I get the flag," she said, moving forward and ignoring her frozen teammates.
The shot cut back to Sammy and Geoff as they got a frozen Trent out of the water. "Don't worry, Trent. We'll get you out of this," Sammy said.
A snowball got hurled courtesy of the Maggots, and unfortunately, Sammy was the victim of the circumstance. She got hit in the head, knocking her out cold.
Geoff was shocked by what had happened. "I will carry on," Geoff told his fallen teammates. "I won't let you two get hurt anymore."
"We should aim higher!" Scarlett called out as the shot returned to the Maggots' fort, the brickhouse looking out their front gate. "Dave and Katie got frozen and we need to hit their shack or we'll lose!"
"I'll help with that," DJ said as the camera panned to him bending the shovel back as Anne Maria loaded a snowball into the loop of the handle. DJ let it go, and the snowball was launched into the air with a twang. The camera followed it over the castle wall, then zoomed out to show it flying over No Man's Land – Geoff still racing towards the Maggots' base; Molly racing toward the Rats' base; Sammy still knocked out; and Dave, Katie, and Trent still frozen. The snowball struck a part of the Rat castle that was a tower, causing part of it to crumble down.
"You hit it!" Anne Maria announced with cheer from the Maggots' base.
"Thanks DJ," Scarlett told him with a smile. "Now keep shooting!"
The shot cut back to the Rats again, Scott loading a particularly large snowball onto their shovel before an even bigger one landed on the snow next to them...and burst open to reveal the junkyard guard beetle.
"Whoa," Leshawna told the beetle. "Haven't you attacked us already?"
The larger one paused, and its tiny child hopped out onto its head and waved.
"I'm not going through what Trent did," Scott told it quickly, "so go and burn their base!" The scene cut back outside as he pointed out the window towards the Maggots' base, and the angry beetle hopped out next to him and scurried back along the ice with B building steps out of snow outside.
"Nice thinkin'," Leshawna told Scott. "Time to get launchin'."
B managed to place the ice shard over the shack, directing the sun's ray onto the Maggots' castle and making it melt.
"We're melting!" Anne Maria cried out.
"This isn't good at all," Scarlett said.
To make matters worse, the beetle rolled up inside and screeched at them.
"How did you even find us?" DJ shrieked before running alongside Scarlett because of the beetle chasing them.
Geoff saw what was going on inside the fort, and with Anne Maria all alone, he knew he could get the flag.
"Keep guarding the flag!" Scarlett called back to Anne Maria.
Anne Maria managed to get in front of the flag before Geoff reached her. "I dig how dedicated you are to your team. You're pretty strong," he praised her.
This got a smile out of Anne Maria. "That's really sweet of you to say."
"If it's not any trouble, I just need to take your flag so my team can win," Geoff continued.
Confessional: Anne Maria
"That Geoff is one smooth eye candy," Anne Maria stated, "but I ain't gonna give the flag to him. What's mine is mine and what's his is his."
"Don't listen to him! He's just trying to steal it from you!" Scarlett snapped at her as DJ was throwing snowballs at the beetle just to fend it away.
Anne Maria snapped out of her trance and held on tightly to her flag. "No way am I giving the flag over to you."
Geoff tried to take it, but Anne Maria still held on tightly to the flag, leading to a tug of war situation. "I'm also sorry, but my team can't lose again," Geoff struggled to get the flag off her.
Meanwhile, Scott went outside to see the Maggots' fort melting. "Crud. What am I supposed to do here?" He saw the shard on top of their fort and grinned. "I'll let someone else do my work for me."
He went back inside the Rats' fort. "Got the snowballs ready?" Scott asked his teammate.
"Armed and loaded," Leshawna presented a small army of snowballs she made out of snow.
Scott started to launch out the snowballs, with some even hitting the melting fort.
Molly was racing along the ice before getting hit in the legs by one of the Rats' snowballs, causing her to slide onto the Rats' shack. She got up in a few seconds to see her team's base about to melt thanks to the sun ray.
"How am I gonna destroy the Rats' fort at this rate?" Molly grunted before seeing the shard B used to direct the beam. She also saw Trent's frozen state and with that, came up with a plan.
"Let's see if science actually taught me anything about sun rays," Molly said before picking up a snowball and throwing it at the shard of ice.
B got out to see the beam now directed at Trent's iced body. Due to reflection, the sun beam got directed at the Rats' snow shack. The shack melted in an instant, shocking the defenders of the base as the shard fell down.
Trent, who was now unfrozen thanks to the beam, fell down next to an unconscious Sammy, but because he was used to being frozen for a long time, he was still immobile.
"Nice magnifying lens, Beverly. That's sabotage!" Scott blamed B, who reacted with shock along with the other people around.
"Maggots win!" Chris declared as he and Chef arrived outside, both back in their winter wear and Chef holding a tray of several steaming mugs.
"And here's your reward," the host added, motioning to the tray in his smiling assistant's hands. "McLean Brand Hot Chocolate", he said. "Scald your senses with chocolatey goodness."
Molly cheered, and the Rats looked down in disappointment. B steeled his gaze at Scott, who looked away and whistled innocently.
Sammy was now awake and Trent was completely unfrozen. "Is the challenge still going on?" Sammy asked.
"No. We just lost," Geoff walked into view.
"I should get near a fire," Trent shivered. "I was frozen for who knows how long."
The unfrozen members of the Maggots dragged Katie and Dave back to their destroyed base in order to figure out how to unfreeze them.
"So how are we gonna get them out?" DJ asked his team.
"Wasn't there a fire breathing beetle around here?" Anne Maria said.
"The beetle isn't here anymore," Scarlett reminded her. "And besides, using its fire could be too risky."
"B gave me his ice picks," Molly pulled them out. "We can use them instead.
"Molly left us to be frozen and didn't even get us out," Dave confessed angrily. "I'm gonna have to talk to her about that."
The footage skipped ahead again, now showing dusk over five of the six Rats relaxing on the steps of their cabin, Trent with a blanket around his shoulders and Scott standing in front of them.
"I told you, B stands for "bad man," and Beverly is a bad man!" Scott inquired.
"I don't know him that much, so I'm going to decide who I'm voting for on my own," Trent declared.
"Same here," Leshawna agreed.
"How can you trust someone who's so secretive, that he doesn't even talk?" Scott got in Sammy's face. "He hates athletes, you know," he claimed, making Sammy shocked as the dirt farmer focused on Geoff. "I've read B's diary. He calls you 'fizzy'."
Everyone seemed to be upset with what was given to them. "Just thought you all should know," Scott said.
"Is what Scott said true or not? Granted, B has helped us a lot, but he never talks at all," Sammy exclaimed. "I'll just flip a coin on this vote."
The scene cut to a shot of the island at night, the camera zooming in then cutting to the six Toxic Rats at the campfire pit – Leshawna, Scott, and Trent in the front row; B, Geoff, and Sammy in the back.
"After another jam-packed day of losing," Chris began as Chef walked up in his hazmat suit carrying the box containing the Toxic Marshmallow, "it all comes down to this."
"The following Rats are safe," Chris said, holding up the first marshmallow. "Leshawna."
The lively girl caught her prize with a smile.
"Geoff." The cowboy hat boy caught his treat.
"Leshawna." The sista caught her treat as well.
"And Scott," Chris finished, the devious boy catching his marshmallow as it flew over his head.
"Which leaves, Bev and Trent," Chris announced, the shot pulling back to show the mute genius looking nervously and the musician sitting up straighter. "And the loser is...," he said with an impish smile, pausing for effect. The camera alternated between close-ups of Trent and B, until finally...
The Strong, Silent Genius frowned, then kept his distance from the toxic marshmallow Chef dropped near his feet. The marshmallow managed to sink further below the ground. When it was gone, B squinted at Scott, who grinned back satisfactory.
"Time for the Hurl of Shame, buddy," Chris told B.
B slumped down, the scene transitioning to him in the Hurl of Shame in the exact same pose.
"Any final words Beverly?" Chris asked, the Rats standing by him. "Any words at all?"
B looked at the people around him and was setting himself up to speak. The gasps of his former team can be heard, and just when he was about to say his words, he got interrupted.
"Time's up!" Chris stopped B and Chef pulled the lever, launching him screaming into the night sky.
Chris turned to face the camera while the five remaining Rats stood behind him gazing off into the distance where B was flung. "Come back for more mutants, mayhem, and manipulation," he said excitedly, "next time, on Total! Drama! Revenge, of the Island!"

2023.06.04 01:06 Ok-Floor7198 Ac freon/cooling question
Had ac freon recharged today with 410A.
It was running on fumes last 2-3 days and wasn’t cooling much at all.
Is it true that house - esp the 3rd floor - got pretty humid last 2-3 days and will take 24 hours to cool down again to set temperature?
First two levels of the townhome got fine in few hrs, but ac is still struggling to push cooler air to the 3rd floor. The attic gets hot like a oven so that doesn’t help on 3rd fl to lower temp.

2023.06.04 00:52 yhsqvklzjvugsnicwd 2010 Honda Civic Mk8 A/C troubles
Last summer, my A/C kept kicking on and off. It would work great for like 10min on a hot day, then stop, then randomly start working great again.
Got it regassed, no luck. Checked online, apparently the relay modules fail a lot on these, so I replaced that too, no luck.
I put up with it last summer. This summer, it completely doesn't work. The blower works but no cold air at all.
Mechanic replaced the entire compressor unit and it still didn't work. He said he thinks it's an electrical issue but isn't sure. Called a mobile "AC specialist" who just tested the relay and then said he doesn't know what's wrong.
Any ideas what I can try? I'm pretty good with electrics (electrican background) but useless at mechanical stuff.

2023.06.04 00:47 thcandbourbon Adequate Compensation for no Air Conditioning?
I stayed at a Four Points hotel in the Greater Toronto Area last night… and unfortunately had virtually no air conditioning despite the fact that it was over 30 c / 86 f outside. Although the lobby was nice and cool, the hallways were VERY hot, and the room I was given as well as the “replacement” room we attempted had deficient AC. The thermostat said “set” to 18 c / 65 f, but the “room” detection of the actual temperature was consistently more like 26 c / 79 f. They said they didn’t have a maintenance person on hand at the time, so one of the front desk people came up to the room to try some things with the thermostat and standalone wall AC unit itself… but to no avail, so they said there wasn’t anything they could do. Apparently they were experiencing this problem with the AC units property wide. This unfortunately ruined my day today as I slept very poorly.
If it makes any difference, I paid about 11,250 points and $115 CAD (points plus cash) for this stay. I’m also a Platinum Elite member of the Bonvoy program.
Upon checkout this morning I requested compensation for this. The manager emailed me earlier offering 5,000 points for the inconvenience. However I feel as though this isn’t adequate considering it wasn’t possible for me to be comfortable in the room for even a moment… ESPECIALLY when this is a known issue they were already aware of before my stay and could have abated through a number of potential measures, such as perhaps offering to provide electric fans for some level of relief from the heat.
So I’m posting to ask two things…
- Just as a matter of opinion, is the 5,000 Bonvoy points they offered fair or reasonable in light of this deficiency?
- Do I stand to gain anything by attempting to escalate this through Marriott corporate?
Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide!

2023.06.04 00:45 CTRL_Polarbear Landlord hasn't fixed ac. Coming up on 30 days
We haven't had a working ac since the 6th of May and we have a written repair request to have it fixed, they came out and fix the fan but the cold air wasn't working so we submitted another work order on the 9th but after reviewing the lease it looks like we're allowed to terminate our lease after 14 days after our written noticed.
This is what the lease states.
32.RESPONSIBILITIES OF OWNER. We'll act with customary diligence to: (1) keep common areas reasonably clean, subject to paragraph 26 (Condition of the Premises and Alterations); (2) maintain fixtures, furniture, hot water, heating and A/C equipment; V (3) comply with applicable federal, state, and local laws regarding safety, sanitation, and fair housing; and (4) make all reasonable repairs, subject to your obligation to pay for damages for which you are liable. Responsibilities of Owner ar If we violate any of the above, you may terminate your tenancy and exercise other remedies under state statute by following this procedure: (a) all rent must be current and you must make a written request for repair or remedy of the condition stating that your tenancy will terminate on a date not less than 14 days after our receipt of the request if the condition is not remedied within a reasonable time not to exceed (14) days. If however, the same condition recurs within six (6) months, you may terminate your tenancy upon fourteen (14) days' written notice. (b) if the repair or remedy hasn't been accomplished within fourteen (14) days, your tenancy will immediately terminate. You also may exercise other statutory remedies. "Reasonable time" takes into account the nature of the problem and the reasonable availability of materials, labor, and utilities but shall not exceed thirty days. Your rent must be current at the time of any request. We will refund security deposits and prorated rent as required by law.
Were just wondering if we have to wait the full 30 days to terminate or if what the lease states allows us to break the lease sooner?
We live in Mississippi and the the temperature in the house has reach 88 with about 56% humidity, if were away from a fan for more than 2 minutes were drenched in sweat and I wake up dehydrated.
