2023.06.04 08:30 something-wrong1234 Poll games: choose your adventure #2 (day 15)

Results of previous poll: say nothing
Story: The school bell rang. You went through the halls to your locker. Being a fire hydrant isn't so bad. You get to shoot water at people you don't like. The school bully Mark came up to you with a half eaten sandwich. He tossed it at you and started laughing. His laughing ceased immediately when you threw the sandwich back after getting it wet and soggy. Enraged, Mark threw a punch at you, forgetting that you were a literal fire hydrant. He clutched his fist in pain and ran off. Many people were giggling, but you focus on one person. You make eye contact with Mr. Ham, the teacher who let's almost everything slide. He nods and gives you a thumbs up. People are patting you on the back, sharing it on social media. It's time for 1st of 5 classes. Math. When you walk in, your teacher, Mr. Ham, starts smirking at you.
Chapter 2: "let's give it up to Hydrant for retaliating against Mark!" Mr. Ham shouted. A few people clapped, others stayed silent. After class, you decide to go to a vending machine. The drink vending machine. You needed to refuel somehow. You tor a bottle of water and emptied it. You then filled the bottle with boiled water which was in a faucet in the cafeteria. It's almost time for class 2. Your least favorite class, Language arts. As you walk in, your teacher Mr. Kang walks up to you and shows you your essay. You got a 30/95. Mr. Kang ordered that you explain it. You apologize and say you'll do better next time. Mr. Kang orders you to sit down. The class dragged by, but there was only three weeks left of school.
Chapter 3: In the halls, a girl comes up to you and asks you out on a date. She's pretty. She asks you where you want to go. You asked if she wanted to go to the mall. She gleefully accepted. After achool you walked to her house and knocked on the door. Her dad came outside. He told you to come in. It was awkward when you sat down, so you thought of a conversation starter. You think of three ideas. You decide to talk about your date, Jenny. You tell her dad how kind she is, and her somewhat high popularity in school. Her dad just nods and dismisses you when Jenny comes down. The two of you go outside and you want to think of something to say. You tell her that she's beautiful and she smiles, thanking you. You both chat but when the two of you are about to reach the mall, three men come up to you with knives. They order you to give you their money, but don't notice Jenny. You sprayed the with the boiled water you drank earlier that day. You think about turning back and acting all heroic.
Chapter 4: You turn back, all heroic, and then realize: "bad idea if I wasn't a fire hydrant". One of the robbers swing a metal bar at you. Once it hits you, it completely bends. Suddenly, a cop tackles the criminals and artests them. Jenny called the cops quietly. What do you mean when you chose "say nothing"

2023.06.04 08:25 PiccoloKuma Looking to round out my cards where categories are missing or type of card needed. Please share knowledge or feedback.

I am less than a year into the credit card rewards game. From an churning perspective I might not have done it in the smartest way, but that's okay I fit somewhere more than the starting person and less than an avid churner. I.e. I want multiple cards that I'm happy to stick with rather than closing and opening 10+ cards. So now I'm looking for my next card. I'm hoping someone could help steer me towards a card with good reasoning. See below for my details
Current cards: BofA Customized Cash Rewards (May 2016, 3% online shopping); Amex Platinum (Nov 2022); Amex Gold (Dec 2022); BofA Alaska (Apr 2023, Cable/Transit/Streaming); Amex Bonvoy Biz (Apr 2023, Gas/Phone/Else)
Oldest account age: 7 years
Chase 5/24 status: 4/24?
Income: $60000 net
Average monthly spend and categories over $100:
dining $1000
groceries: $160
gas: $160
phone: $235
streaming+cable: $102
Cat (food/insurance/medical): $145
Average annual travel: $4000-$6000 (domestic is socal/DC, international is East/SE Asia and Central America)
Open to Business Cards: Yes. I am not tied to my Marriott Biz and may close it if I decide to become loyal to Hyatt or a different chain.
What's the purpose of your next card? Shopping, Visa alternative to Alaska, Hotel, or airline specific.
Do you have any cards you've been looking at? I had my eye on CSP, WoH, BBP, or Aeroplan.
Are you OK with category spending or do you want a general spending card? Yes.
Tl;dr I'm 4/24 with Amex Plat/Gold duo. Should I aim for a Chase card, Amex trifecta, or airline/hotel specific credit card?

2023.06.04 05:32 FlyingThrowawayHey FAA Medical with ADHD Cost and Timeline 2023

So a couple of months or so ago, I made a post looking for info from people that had recently gone through the process of trying to get a medical with an ADHD diagnosis. One of the mods shot the post down and told me to use the search lol. So I figured I'd make this for anyone else looking for recent, more up-to-date info.
Quick Summary with time and costs-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For those that don't want to read and just want the meat and potatoes: Time from AME exam to issuance of medical- 2 months or 43 business days, which is better than the 60 business days estimation shown in MedXpress. Total cost: HIMS Neuropsych- $1500, HIMS AME- $642 (probably didn't need to spend. More on that later), 1st Class Medical Exam $199. Total- $2,341.
Here's my story------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I scheduled my discovery flight for February '23 and immediately started looking at the other requirements. That's when I noticed ADHD and ADHD meds were a no no for the FAA. After researching around on here and other places, I saw that you could get a special issuance for ADHD as long as you weren't on the meds and could prove you didn't have ADHD. I haven't taken meds in years, so I decided to try to pursue my special issuance. Not to mention, I've had other doctors doubt my ADHD diagnosis and tell me that the way the meds made me feel were a sign I probably didn't have it. I was diagnosed while struggling in college.
Instead of going to a normal AME, I elected to go to a HIMS AME instead. This is absolutely not necessary for ADHD, and I probably could have saved hundreds of dollars by not doing so. Luckily the AME I went to also studied neuropsych or something like that and was able to do a write of up his assessment of me as well. Whether that was part of helping the FAA decide or not, I will never know. I spent an initial $275 for the initial consultation in which he basically just told me he would defer me, the FAA would send me a letter, and I would have to do what they told me to to get my medical. I already knew all of that from research on the internet and here. The 2nd $385 was from him doing his write-up about me to the FAA as well as having to go back and forth with me and my HIMS Neuropsych and read our emails because of the issues we've had. So that chunk may have been necessary, especially since he included the emails between myself and the neuropsych.
After research, I elected to wait on my exam and to not wait for the FAA to send me a packet telling me what I needed to do for my special issuance. I started calling around to HIMS Neuropsychs to find one at a decent price. What I found was most of them were by the book and would not see me until I had my letter from the FAA telling them exactly what they wanted and a copy of my medical record from the FAA. I finally found a couple that were willing to do so and could get me scheduled fairly quickly. Unfortunately, none were within driving distance. So, I scheduled an appointment with one and bought an airplane ticket to go see her.
I'll try to keep this part brief as I have other posts on it, but long story short(ish), I flew to go see the HIMS Neurospsych and took my exam with her. The next day, I emailed asking about my results to see if I needed to schedule an additional appointment to do the full battery. Her first email said everything looked fine, but she would let me know definitely the next day. The next email to me said 'your scores are generally okay. I think you'll be okay, and I don't think it's necessary for you to take the full evaluation'. Little more in there, but those are the important parts. So I'm like sweet. Send it! I told her I had an appointment with my AME at the end of the month and asked if that would be sufficient time for her to finish her report and get it to my AME so we could send it all in together. She told me the date was fine and she should be finished by then. So I checked back in with her a couple of times, just to make sure everything was still on track, and she told me it was. The day before my exam with my AME, I hadn't received anything from her. I emailed her, and received no response. On the day of my exam, I emailed and then called her to see what was going on. After my exam was over with my AME, I got a text from her asked who I was. I told her who I was and that she was supposed to have my report to me on that day. She replied 'Oh. That was today?' She then emails me stating that it would be in my best interest to return and get a full evaluation. Waaaaaait... What?! So I then basically asked how she went from 'everything was fine' to 'more testing' and pointing her to the emails she previously sent. She then gave me more excuses as to why she changed her mind, and I pointed out the discrepancies between what she was saying and what she previously said. I don't think she was a fan of this.
I asked her to call my AME and explain because I wanted his opinion. He told me he thought we should have her write the report as-is and send it to see what the FAA says before paying her an additional $1000 for more testing. So she writes the report and sends me a copy. I feel the report was written in a kind of retaliatory manner. It seemed negative towards me, and was misleading as she described the above events and made it seem like the time from me taking my exam to her 'recommending' additional testing being like a day instead of a month. There was no mention of her originally telling me that I didn't need any additional testing or her telling me everything was fine when checked in with her. There's more, but again, trying not to make this about that or too long. I have other posts on it. I will give her credit though for putting towards the very bottom of the report basically that she didn't think I had ADHD, my evaluation from the ADHD diagnosis didn't suggest that I had it, and I was unlikely to have any aeromedically significant cognitive problems. Then after that, she went right back to more BS. Lol.
So this is where the additional $385 came from with my AME. He talked to her, plus we had conversations talking about the report and talking about what was in the emails. My AME thought I had very good reasoning to be questioning how things just up and randomly changed, and thought we should send the emails in with my medical to add context to her report. So I sent him the emails I had with her, and he read through them and said he thought we should definitely include them as the report without them probably wasn't the greatest for me. In addition, he decided to do a write up of his own with his evaluation of me as well. The $385 was from the time he spent doing this.
Summary of what I did--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I found a HIMS AME for my exam, scheduled a CONSULTATION (not an exam), and explained my intentions. *NOTE* You don't NEED a HIMS AME for your exam. You DO need a HIMS Neuropsych for the evaluation. I found a HIMS Neuropsych that was willing to do the ADHD evaluation without the FAA letter telling me to do so. I went to her with all the documents that the FAA says to provide in the ADHD PDF, with the exception of the FAA medical records as there weren't any because I hadn't had my exam. After my test, I checked with the neuropsych to see if I needed the full battery. Once the neuropsych said she didn't think I did, I started my flight training. I gave the neuropsych time to write the report, then I did my exam with my HIMS AME so the deferred exam and the report could be sent off at the same time. I then just waited patiently for a response. Fortunately that response was a special issuance.
I am NOT recommending you do this. This is just what I did. You do you. AOPA and my AME both recommended I wait and see what the FAA instructed me to do after the deferral before spending money to get testing. Based off of my research from here and some other sites, I find it unlikely that I wouldn't have had to do the neuropsych eval, so I went ahead and got it taken care of.

2023.06.04 04:26 chubbyxbunni Anxiety?

Anxiety like my therapist says?
Is this anxiety? Or what?
I didn't go to pre-K, I did go to a morning class but I never went to pre-k. In 1st grade I went half days, and my mom would take me out in the afternoons. I did go to a homeschooling teacher for a little while, I can't remember how I did. Then 2nd through 4th grade I went normally. Then, she took me out to homeschool me, it didn't work out so she stuck me back in later in the year.
I surely fell behind because I couldn't stay focused on my schoolwork at home, that's why my mom put me back in public schooling. Which I'm thankful for. I missed a lot of school through my education years, due to an illness I had which had me vomiting quite frequently. They took me out of class for math because I fell behind, and I had comprehension issues due to my ADHD. I have attention deficits. But, now it's gotten better. In 5th grade towards the end of the year they brought up to my mom they would like to place me on an IEP due to falling behind in a few subjects; Reading and Mathematics.
Fast forward to current time, given I was in an IEP I feel like I'm intellectually or developmentally delayed. I feel like I'm slow, I currently live at home and work in the hospital as a certified nursing assistant. I work full time, but I feel dumb. I pay rent at home even though I'm so bad with money it's insane. I'm impulsive with money especially, I prioritize things badly. I know I'm doing it too, it's just like impulsive. It's weird. I have bad anxiety, social anxiety as well.. anxiety for every situation it seems like. I've gone to therapy for it, because I feel like I'm existing... not living. My therapist says that given that I was able to pass my CNA state certification I'd have to be average or above average in intelligence to even pass it.
I feel like everyone around me knows something is "off". Even though I haven't heard it, I'm sure they talk? I don't really care about anything else anyone has to say BUT the thought of them thinking that I'd be slow or intellectually delayed bothers me. As a kid I walked and talked on time, and passed my childhood milestones. It wasn't ever indicated I was intellectually delayed.
I got employee of the month 2 months being in the hospital, but I've made big mistakes no one got hurt. I've been a CNA 4 years prior. These nurses are my age and younger and they seem so mature. I feel like sometimes I feel dumb and inadequate. I'm quiet, but I want to be smart and an intellectual. They always say how a hard job I do. These nurses hangout and are friends with each other. I feel out of sorts here. There's been times where they come sit by me cause I sit away from them. Do you think they think something is off? They seem to like me and keep me included. THEY are articulate, I think I'm articulate online but offline it's bad.
I don't know if I'm overthinking this?
There's patients that come in with cognitive deficits or intellectual disabilities. I don't act like them, but everytime I hear something along those lines I panic. I worry people think that about me. I worked with adults with intellectual disabilities and it triggered something in me. I had to quit because of it.
I got drunk the other night and said to my friends "I think I'm slow" and they were like "No you arent!" But idk if they say they cause they didn't want to hurt my feelings.
The CNA test is common sense but my therapist said that I'd have to hold an average intelligence.
I still live at home, I'm 26, needing dental work done and now I have to get insurance on my own because I don't have any now. I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. Is this just anxiety? My one friend said socially I probably have anxiety over. I do have bad social anxiety and I'm quiet. I spend money and sometimes go into overdrafts, I'm bad with money but I know I am and it's an issue. I spend money to be happy, because I'm so sad a lot. I am paying off my car to my mom, I pay rent everyday check to my mom. It's not like I'm living here for free. I would love my own place but I can't afford it.
I feel like at work I'm slow, even though they tell me I do amazing. These nurses are younger and my age and they are so assertive, confident and I more so go with the flow.
I'm pretty quiet, I'm opening up now. I feel like I do stupid shit all the time... and I've been a CNA for a long time. They are assertive and I feel like they tell me what to do.
I just hope my friends going forward don't say anymore after the encounter on my drunk night. I'll just play it off as I was drunk lol

2023.06.04 03:19 CloseButFar_1 Critique for the first two chapters of my fantasy fiction: The Word Of Chaos

Hello, everyone! These are the first two chapters of my fantasy fiction, The Word Of Chaos. I haven't really written a novel before (tried multiple times but always got bored after something just did not work), so I might not be familiar with some of the 'technical terms' of writing.
1st chapter: A day spent in control, a month spent under sorrow's soul, what is it that makes me different from a devil, if evil lies in my veins, made of holes.
Beautiful, isn't it? People smiling, laughing happily. Seemingly, doing the most obvious thing, without any thought. Walking with their friends, munching on an hash brown, taking their lovers on a date, or just simply... sitting. Doing nothing and anything - something and more than nothing, I must ask those who do something, what do you find in that something that you are happy? And to those who do nothing, what is it in nothing that you gain something?
It is a concept... that we, especially I, fail to comprehend.
Chapter 1: Ceremonial rites
"The lesser good, and the greater evil.", a deep, eccentric voice filled the chamber. The voice, kept on retracting and contracting, reflecting endlessly. And being etched into everyone's mind. "If good deeds end up in an evill doer, or, if evil deeds end up in a good doer, how must we distinguish an evil doer from a good doer?" The baptist stopped for a second, standing still on his high ground. As he scratched his side hair, he rapidly started turning pages. One by one. Two by two. Three by three. Four.. by Four until he stopped. Although it was difficult to tell whether he stopped or time itself halted. "Well, the Wolves. Ooh, a name to tell indeed isn't it?" Everyone chuckled, silently as possible. "The Wolves. Ah, yes. Well an old man never forgets despair does he?" "The Wolves were a group of savage, barbaric demons who came from the western land, yes?" Everyone nodded in unison, like children in a class. "They robbed stuff, stole gold, and ran off like cowards to their 'home' which they ever so happily stole from others." He paused for a second, resuming walking from right to left. Left to right. Right to left. His feet lifting so slightly from the ground, making a rubbing sound. His leg not bending even a single degree. And, his posture remaining the same throughout; tall, high, straight. Not a single person dared to wet their tissues.
"Well, that's at least what we are taught." He started walking quickly. Not hastily, but patiently, taking each step in caution. "For all that I could see, they carried their own good." Everyone was shocked, not because of the statement, but because it was made in front of the nobles of the royal family. "The lesser good, and the greater evil." He repeated the principle again. Although, this time, he looked directly at us with a wide, focused glare. As if he was trying to foreshadow something - a message, a key to a note, the future and the past that can lead to it. "What must be done for good must be done." "A small deed, how small, must be accomplished even if requires a greater sin." Time, truly had stopped. In its truest essence, time halted. Not even a speckle of dust dared move. The nobles, sat in expressionless faces, as they too admired his glory distilling each and every word that he said against them. For the first time, no one sat down after a speech had ended.
"So, what it is that I want to tell you guys?" "Hmmm, perhaps some might take this as a bit of dating advice? Mmm, mhmm?" A small chuckle silenced the entire glory of the chamber. It felt like the normal, plain theatre.
"That there will come times, when difficult decisions must be made for the greater good. For -" "Mr. Mephisto, I believe we should start the baptism." A surreal voice interrupted. A noble from the right side of the chamber stood up, and gestured his servants to pass out what seemed like a paper.
But still, Mephisto never faced the noble. Rather, he increased his walking speed as if he was intentionally trying to ignore the noble in question. And then, almost in a sense of urgency, stopped walking. As if he found what he was trying to find. Imagined what was to happen. For the final time, he stopped walking and looked back at us. He said,
"Alas, lads. Laddened are the ladels, so we must too ladel them for their lads."
My thoughts were apparently audible to everyone. And after realizing it, they were and what's worse, I was speaking really loud. "What, lad? Laddening the past, are we?" I did not look beside me to check who was talking. All my mind could think about was the past.
Later on... Mephisto was found dead, on the same stage that he staged his speech on. Chapter 2: The Prelude Of Chaos
Calamity, bethought is thy name, what is it left when blood kills the blood of supreme pain? Is it the good of the ruler, or the evil of the ruled whose kindst were killed too? Or, is it the evil of the ruler that will still impact the kingdom of his devious rule? Chaos' Child, Tell Me, What is it That A Cat Must Do In Order To Be A King, And Not Be A Fool?
"Margaret, how many times must I tell you? Your mouth... should ... ah, yes there you go." It was one of those popular adult shows that we could watch while eating food, and not get disgusted by the sight. "Ah, this show is so good." A crude voice came from my right. It sounded like General Pendra, one of the higher-ups. Technically, he was the only higher-up that we knew of. Others chilled in the air conditioning room, with their own beer and women. "Well, this is the only women that we could get." The voice was surreal enough to distract me from the television. His voice was practically laughing, jiggling around in his mouth. Only the lower soldiers still have the nerve to speak in such a manner when a higher-up is present. I was not even sitting in front of the television but could hear their voices clearly. It was as if a bunch of old men were hagging around with a bunch of old hags, but instead of seducing them, started talking about their experiences with other hags. I wanted them to shut up already, so that I can focus on my work. But, it did not feel like they were going to stop either way. Well, whether they sto - "Private Sanahate reporting, sir. May I presume that I am speaking to Lieutenant of the Night Parade, the left seat commandment, the person known by many names, the Lor-" "Yes, you are speaking with him. What business do you have here?" "I-I apologize for my rude behavior. I am a big fan, sir. I just could not control saying those words when I am present before your Eminence." The voice was rather slingy. It sounded like it came from all directions but in fact, only came from one. It sounded like a mix of personalities - angry, sad, reverance, loyalty, happiness, all of them were audible. It did not sound like one of my underlings, so it must have been from either the leftover soldiers who were not able to go to war, or the servants of the soldiers who went. "Speak your business, and make it quick. I do not want you to stay here for even a minute. This isn't a place that the higher ups would like you to stay in." I gestured towards General Pendra to show him what I meant. Oh, how the great fall, don't they? It was embarrassing to even point at him. "Yes. I am here to deliver news from the battlefield, sir. The 91st cavalry... has been destroyed." I was not surprised. Considering the leader that they were assigned to, it was only natural that they would meet their demise at the battlefield. But, the most information here is not that they were destroyed, but who- "Who killed them?" I did not even need to deduce who this voice was from. Surreal, glorious, educative and revered. It was Mr. Mephisto, the baptist. "Sir, your orders. I believe I have a strong hunch about who killed the 91st cavalry. If you may allow, please send me to the battlefield, and I shall achieve results as soon as possible." My body did not even need to think what I should say. It reacted on its own, and said the default thing that any soldier would say. "No, you must stay here." He gestured a palm towards me. This was the first time ever that Mr. Mephisto declined anyone's request. "Private Sanahate, prepare me a quick horse to travel on and pack my belongings. If you don't know where to find them, ask Januela." "But, Sir Mephisto, this i-" "I don't need buts and muts. Either follow my orders, or see your family die of hunger. What do you want to choose?" The soldier did not say a single word, and left. As if he was dissapointed that the same person who he respected, did not act in the way that made him respectable. He let out a deep sigh. "Mordred, do not look at the map after 12:46 of the seventh Sun." I did not ask why. But, even an idiot would know what this meant.
Things were about to get bloody.

2023.06.04 02:14 tgoddess01 I need help paying for Summer School!

Hey guys , so I need help paying for my summer school tuition. I recently just received an email about the deadline being Wednesday, June 7. The remaining balance amount is $1,220. I tried using financial aid but they denied me for the summer because i’ve “exhausted all of my federal aid for the year”. I really don’t know what else to do because if I don’t pay they’ll drop my last class i’m taking and this the last class I need before I can graduate in August. Please help me if you can. I am a 22 year old 1st generation college student who doesn’t have help from her family members. Id really appreciate all the help I can get even if it’s just prayers that I can get through this. Please message me privately for my cashapp or venmo if you could help!

2023.06.04 01:38 NachoCatracho People in yellow robes and staffs at graduation

Graduation is coming up (I won’t be the one graduating - I’m a junior 😔✋🏼), so I got reminded of last year’s graduation.
I was in the band playing at the ceremony and I saw the 1st and 2nd ranked students of the junior class with these staffs dressed in yellow robes. I was very confused.
When they started to pass out diplomas, the two juniors would raise their staff to signal to the graduates to stand up. They did this for each row.
Is this something traditional? What is the role called?

2023.06.04 01:11 joinreddi-waitwhat Some question regarding 1st world patriarchy

How much do you all think the current state of women and LGBT+ people in the 1st world is owe to the economic aspect (or material condition as the cool dudes called it), and how much on the social ones?
Or another way to phrase the question: How much of the patriarchy we can solve without actually tackle the current economic system?
And seeing the more feminist and pro-LGBT+ of some faction of the bourgeoisie makes me wonder: What has changed specifically in the 1st world that make capitalism comfortable with this movement? Is it concession from the ruling class? Imperialism shipping the suffering out to the rest of the world? Or conformation with the consumerist obsession with more identity/consumer demographics?

2023.06.04 01:00 DarkSteel02 Brawler Ideas

Ok guys, haven’t done anything here for like two years, and, just for fun, decided to look back on the game and in here.
I do get half-well the current meta and everything, but I decided to revive a post where I made suggestions for two Brawlers. That post was like late 2020-early 2021, so I dug it out and remastered it with the use of ChatGPT technology to enhance some new ideas, as well as part of my own knowledge in the current game and meta. So here are ideas for two Brawlers, let me know what you think, and how do you think that they’ll affect the current meta. Thanks!
Brawler Ideas
Rarity: Epic
Class: Support
Health: 4200 (lvl 1) - 6300 (lvl 11)

Damage: 600 (lvl 1) - 900 (lvl 11)

Super charge per hit: 16.67%
Turret health: 2600 (lvl 1) - 3900 (lvl 11)
Resistance boost: 50% (Golon), 25% (Teammates)
"Golon is an golem made of iron who is barely able to tickle but at the same time barely able to get tickled. All defense no offense indeed!"
"This Brawler takes 16% less damage from all sources."
Attack: Tickly
"Golon shoots a beam from his defense device, umm... tickling the enemy hit."
Super: Force Field
"Golon deploys a turret that increases his and teammates' resistance who stay in its area of effect."
1st Gadget: Metal Screech
"Golon's turret emits an ear-splitting screech that causes nearby enemies to take 40% more damage for 3 seconds!"
2nd Gadget: Out of Field
"Teammates outside the turret's area of effect are still boosted for 2 seconds."
1st Star Power: Steel Defense
"Whenever Golon or his teammates hit enemies within the turret's area of effect, they all gain an extra 5% resistance boost per hit. Each boost stacks and lasts for 1 second."
2nd Star Power: Mr. Softener
"Turret now also causes enemies standing within it to take 30% more damage when hit. Ouch!"
Rarity: Mythic
Class: Marksman
Health: 2200 (lvl 1) - 3300 (lvl 11)
Movement speed: Fast

Damage per tick: 220 (lvl 1) - 330 (lvl 11)
Damage per second: 2200 (lvl 1) - 3300 (lvl 11)
Range: 10 (Very Long)
Duration: 4s
Super charge per hit: 4.55%
"Ray is a bounty hunter from the future who traveled back in time to unleash destructive energy from his, well... raygun. He might be really frail, but above all he's really consistent!"
Attack: Raydiation
"Ray emits a single but ionizingly powerful long-range beam from his raygun. Upon hitting enemies, the beam splits in three and quickly keeps traveling before leaving behind three gas clouds that last for 2 seconds, causing further disruption!"
Super: Hyper Beam
"Ray aims with a lethal, longer-ranged beam for 4 seconds, destroying cover and deep-frying anyone unfortunate enough to be found in reach!"
1st Gadget: Gamma Rays
"Ray releases a double-sided blast from his raygun at any nearby enemy. This shot deals 1250 damage, knocks enemies back, and, upon hitting enemies, leaves a gas cloud behind on each side that deals up to 1500 damage over 3 seconds."
2nd Gadget: Aggro Rayload
"For 6 seconds, Ray reloads 20% faster and gains another 20% boost each time he hits a target with his main attack."
1st Star Power: Quick Smug
"Ray quickly shows his smug whenever he defeats an enemy, gaining a 15% speed boost for 4 seconds."
2nd Star Power: Hyper Drain
"Ray's Super now also heals him for 110 per tick. Only works on living, breathing beings, capiche?"

2023.06.04 00:59 giveuporfindaway Patriarchy 2.0 Is Coming

Feminism is not inevitable. Rather, it’s a byproduct of power that is derived from geographical and historical anomalies. Feminism is an idea which has no guarantee to remain. It has no more of a moat than patriarchy did. Both feminism and patriarchy are at the mercy of their environments. And to this point I believe that we’re living in the last decade of the current environment. What will follow will be patriarchy 2.0. It will be fueled by an incidental convergence of factors that will naturally happen.
Below are the strongest patterns that I see contributing to this:
1) Globalism is an anomaly. It did not exist before WWII. And the only reason it existed after was due to the US being a sole superpower of the seas. A consequence of globalism was that primarily male, middle class, manufacturing jobs went overseas. This decimated the male workforce. This is coming to an end. We are going back to a pre-WWII order. The world will deglobalize and manufacturing will return to the United States. This will happen at the same time that a largely legacy boomer factory cohort has retired. Essentially any male X’er, Millennial or Zoomer will be in high demand and have access to a well paying physical manufacturing job. For more on this read The End of the World Is Just the Beginning by Peter Zeihan. A short video on it.
2) At the same time that manufacturing will be returning to the United States, AI will be replacing job categories that are disproportionately dominated by women.
3) Similar to 2), digital sex workers will be put out of business by AI. In the not too distant future no woman will ever profit off her sexuality ever again. This will be due entirely to market forces and not any overt policies. Synthetic alternatives will simply be better and cheaper. When you consider that there are things like Call Annie or things like img2img it’s not hard to predict the consequences. Attractive women will lose their market advantage. In the short term they will be replaced by unattractive women. Or the billion or so third world poor males who are willing to be actors. Eventually all sexual actors will be replaced entirely. The cost of this tech will drive prices to zero. What is the impact here? Well there’s roughly 2.1 million content creators on Only Fans in the United States. A portion of these unemployed women will become escorts, which will create a buyers market for men.
4) US Passport Bros will increase. When you combine the destruction of third world economies with the reemergence of a US manufacturing base, you’ll have an even more extreme disparity between 1st world and 3rd world countries.
5) The current dating environment is largely a byproduct of laws passed in the post 1960’s era by a Silent Generation and Boomer cohort. These include:
- 1965: Affirmative Action
- 1971: No Fault Divorce
- 1973: Legalized Abortion
All of these three laws are being actively challenged. It’s not surprising that this is happening. When you compare the male cohort that enacted these laws vs the male cohort that is disavowing them, it’s clear they are different. I don’t think unemployed single males who've dropped out of the system care about continuing these laws and politicians sense this. Men with nothing to lose vote conservatively on women's rights.
6) Increasingly high resolution simulated experiences will enable men to carry out digital rape and violence fantasies against female AI NPCs. This will normalize certain sexual behaviors in the same way that porn has.
