Phase 0) Digital Economics 101

The Digital Economics 101 module will open 1 week prior to the cohort start date.This is an onboarding module that will get you up to speed so we can get straight into the material.This will be required to finish before the start date.

Phase 1) Creating A Meaningful Niche

Every day I hear people going on and on about trying to find their niche.I also hear people talking about how they don’t know how to combine what they love talking about with what will sell.You already have the answer. You just don’t have the clarity.

Phase 2) Content Strategy

There is one thing that separates those who make it in the digital economy and those who don’t.It’s the quality, articulation, and perceived originality of their content.The content you post has to make sense to the people you attract.Everyone has a different voice and tone that they resonate with. That they are congruent with and trust.It has to change their thought patterns or behavior — that’s what makes you memorable.That’s what separates you from the sea of people posting surface-level copy-cat style posts.Example and putting my money where my mouth is:

Phase 3) Crafting Your Offer

Most people are sitting on a goldmine of skills, experience, and knowledge (that they can use to help people 1-2 steps behind them).That is what people pay for.Considering 95% of the market are beginners… if you are good at something, you can help them get to your level (no matter how “basic” you think the information is).Do you not watch basic content all day anyway? People don’t want new information, they want to be reminded of what works.

Phase 4) Marketing Strategy

You aren’t making money because you aren’t promoting yourself or your offer.That is literally the only way to make money. Have something desirable and consistently put it in front of peoples’ faces.In Phase 4, I will show you how to systemize, automate, and be consistent with simple promotions.You will be able to make money without having the chance of forgetting to do it (or letting fear of failure get in the way).

Bonus) The Creator Command Center

The Creator Command Center is a Notion template that houses all of the systems.This is how you will manage your brand, content, offer creation, marketing strategy, and systemized promotions for consistent sales.

Bonus) Live Product Build & Launch

In the first Digital Economics Cohort, I built out my course The 2 Hour Writer.I have videos showing how I build it with the strategies in phase 3 and 4.There is a bonus module that shows how I had an $85,000 launch that resulted in my first $100K month.I did this to prove the strategies inside Digital Economics work if you stick to the plan.And, this past Black Friday, I blew my that monthly high out of the water in 4 days.That’s the power of these strategies if you stay consistent with your life’s work.

2023.06.04 08:28 Kapitalgal The pixie girl is still a part of me.

I've no idea why Youtube suggested a very young Dolores O'Riordan singing Dreams to me, but I watched it. And fell down an emotional rabbit hole.
My weekend nights in my late teens to mid twenties were taken up with going to nightclubs playing dream pop, though I had no idea that was what that genre of music was called. I had a cute pixie hair style and rocked a pair of demin overalls and the sorts of styles Dolores made famous.
This video, and the song, got me to take a cold hard look at younger me. Dolores was my spirit queen. It is the first time I can see how I moved in the world and the energy I might have given off.
Part of it, too, is my ignorance of my heritage. My dad's side of the family are Irish and it wasn't something I ever felt compelled to look into. But all sign posts are pointing me that way, and now my sudden awareness of who Dolores was has brought it all into my vision.
How do you see the young you? Who were you? What did you do that was passionate and exemplified your soul?
Thank you, Dolores, for being you.

2023.06.04 08:27 pkmnbrawler123 [Dumb Effortpost] No one has the ability to think critically online

I'm bored at work tonight and I have 6 hours left in my shift. Please don't read this if you want something insightful I'm just working through my thoughts about the current state of discussion online. I wanted to write up a small thing over Destiny's latest video and focus on the YouTube comments. The more I see discussions in these spaces the more I don't know where I could actually go to have a genuinely thoughtful and good faith discussion online. YouTube is obviously a biased selection of the more idiotic type of comments but all over this subreddit and all over Twitter I will see paragraphs written about things that seem to just be ill informed and presumptuous from the start.
I'm not even a hardcore Destiny fan, I think I've posted in this subreddit twice. I watch a lot of his YouTube videos but I've only tuned in to a couple streams over the years. I enjoy most of his podcast appearances and respectful debates and I avoid the shouting matches and heavy drama stuff for the most part. I really like his takes on culture and relationships and they've helped me grow a lot in my personal life. I see so many fans of his or what I assume are fans of his commenting on videos and tweets and threads. They feel less like people who found a personality they enjoy and relate to and want to learn and grow from, and more like fanboys trying to imitate someone they think is cool. To me it feels like if you idolize Destiny you would want to take his advice and incorporate it into your life and not just try to do what he does because he looks cool doing it.
I once replied to a tweet he made about the East Palestine situation talking about my personal experience because I live in Ohio and I heard about it all as it happened before the conspiracy theorists latched onto it weeks later. Destiny's tweet was about how the news reported it when it happened and no one other than those close to it cared so they stopped reporting on it. I replied confirming that I heard about the news as soon as it happened because I only live a few hours away. We were updated on the situation throughout the day and I paid attention to it because I needed to know if I had to stay away from tap water if any chemicals had made it into the Ohio River. Me and my girlfriend were both worried about it. Someone, who I assume is a Destiny fan, replied to me along the lines of "Do you think Destiny cares where you live?" And I couldn't even think about how to start replying to them because of how weird they had read my tweet. Destiny said it was reported on and no one cared so they stopped reporting on it. I confirmed that it was reported on locally and it wasn't like the media was ignoring it. Somehow that was taken as me being contrary to Destiny and I was replied to by a fan derogatorily because of that.
It feels so weird to me how people are so comfortable jumping to conclusions and firing off replies with so little thought. I would be so embarrassed if someone pointed out something super obvious I overlooked in my smug dunk I just posted. I've heard IQ is based off of pattern recognition and it almost feels like people will recognize what they think is a pattern of a bad argument, not actually read the argument, fire off a nonsensical dunk and move on. When you actually assume someone has thought through a position then it's not hard to interpret a message in good faith and talk about it if you disagree.
Anyways, onto my main point. Destiny posted this video on his YouTube channel earlier today and as I was watching it and listening to his takes on things I was tying it back to things he's said previously on his self defense takes. I listened to his conversation with Pisco and remembered him talking about how he was planning on writing up a justifiable defense for killing someone over a blade of grass.
One of the clips in the video is a woman on TikTok filming a man and asking them repeatedly why they grabbed her wig off her head and just kept walking. The man appears to be drunk or out of it and just keeps smiling and mumbling as she keeps shouting the same questions over and over asking him why he would do that. The man was working for a law firm and ended up getting fired over the clip. Destiny was talking about how recording this after the fact and going after someone's job is a bad thing to do and he would consider it worse than calling the cops or beating the man up in response. He says going after someone's livelihood like that is a really bad thing to do in his opinion.
Looking at the comments on this video most are addressing that clip of the lawyer who got fired. I see this comment with 38 replies. The comment seems genuine enough and the replies seem genuine enough. Most seem to be arguing over whether snatching a wig and someone's hat is equivalent and could be justified with force. Some are arguing that snatching a wig could genuinely cause physical harm to the person and the response was warranted. I only see a couple comments addressing what I would call the meat of the issue. Is blowing up someone after the fact and going after their livelihood a justifiable response to assault?
With respect to Destiny's kill someone over a blade of grass thing. If you were to beat up someone for snatching your wig or call the cops on them and report them for assault, that feels like an entirely different beast than going after their job and their livelihood. Recording a confrontation after the fact and trying to blow them up over it seems more like revenge and less like self defense to me. I could be convinced that you could be justified in killing someone if they tried to take your wig and things escalated. It does feel to me like going after someone's job because of something they did that is no longer a threat to you is a bad thing.
I don't really feel sorry for the guy for being a dumbass, but I do think the revenge filming for doing a bad thing and reporting them to their employer is a bad thing to do. Everyone does dumb shit every once in a while. I would be screwed if I was held liable by my place of employment for dumb shit I did off work years ago when I first started.
The same way it feels wrong for payment processors to deny your transactions based on the work you do, it also feels wrong for employers to fire people for dumb things they do off hours that are not related to the company.
Other comments feel a lot less thought out and I can't ever imagine myself comfortable posting something similar. This comment seems so obviously dumb to me. I dont even watch the vods and I remember his position on this clearly. His problem wasn't someone throwing an egg at him. It was that someone posted his current location online and encouraged people to go to him and throw an egg at him. If someone posts where you are and says hey go assault this person then it's probably fair game to dig through their public info and report that behavior to an employer. I don't know if I would necessarily call it a good thing or say I agree with it but it definitely isn't "My assault bad, this assault ok" Just a dumb nonsensical dunk that doesn't hold up to scrutiny. If you watch Destiny and believe when he says he thinks about his positions why would you assume he just makes random justifications that don't hold up? How do you think he got through arguing about the egg thing when it happened? Why would you mischaracterize his position so much for this? To me it feels like someone saw a pattern of logic that was almost close to another pattern of logic, threw them both together and sent a comment off. Why write off someone who is very popular for debating and thinking through positions so easily? Destiny is known for knocking down paper tigers over and over again because he can argue their side better than they can. Why would he have such a flimsy justification here?
This comment could have a point if Destiny hadn't addressed it specifically in this video. He doesn't feel like assault and attacking someone's livelihood is equivalent. Especially after the fact. Argue against that point, not the point that he already addressed. As a side note, the phrase "This is such a weird take from x" annoys me. Just say you think it's dumb, why try to characterize it as them being contrary to their values or something. If you agree with their stuff but this one feels off to you, investigate that. Don't just be like "huh that's weird" and give it no further thought. Why is it weird to you? Why do you think it doesn't line up with other things they've said? Does it actually go against their values or are you misinterpreting something?
This comment is some of that good remedial shit. So cocky and so off the mark. His whole point is the reason she's recording it is for clout and to get the guy in trouble. He says he would rather the guy get beat up or reported to the authorities than try to hunt down the guy's place of employment and get his job taken away from him. If you actually disagree with that take then argue against that take not these stupid mischaracterizations of his takes that make him easy to defeat. If you can't argue against the actual position and you have to make it dumber so you can win you're just giving yourself a participation trophy.
I know YouTube comments are supposed to be the bottom of the barrel but honestly I feel like I see the same shit just as poorly thought out all over Twitter and all over this subreddit. I don't think most people engage in discussion on social media in good faith and I wouldn't know where to go to actually do so. It all feels like poorly thought out dunks and seeing people be smug about it is just annoying.
Hopefully that all doesn't come across as an aimless string of run on sentences and I actually communicated my thoughts coherently. No TLDR for this, it's not an important post. Read it or don't. Feel free to roast me on not communicating my thoughts effectively. I'm kind of just shooting my thoughts into the ether here, I don't even know if this could be considered an actual effort post.

2023.06.04 08:26 HelloYallJustCurious My husband came home wasted

My husband came home wasted on Thursday after a company event. For context we live in a country let’s say like Ireland where drinking until drunk is not uncommon… They had a huge event for clients and he was supposed to make it home by 11pm since they very next day on Friday afternoon he was headed to a bachelor party until Sunday. He promised me he would come home early so he could be with our daughters on Friday morning before the bachelor… Well… He arrived at 5:30am completely destroyed. Apparently the coworkers moved the party to the office (they have a bar there) and he came when the cleaning ppl kicked them out.
He then woke up at 10:30 still drunk and proceed to take a 2 hour nap in the living room. Leaving the girls completely to me. (Which is ok I love them but not the plan) I’ve never been so angry with him tbh just the week before we both drank way too much for this brothers departure improvised party and with the bachelor party coming the last thing I expected was this.
He always told me only drinks in this company events cause he doesn’t go out otherwise. But this proves it wrong. Shows that he was lying to me since the beginning and he does it just cause he likes it and he can’t control it. On top of everything he wasn’t even remorseful and actually gaslighting me for being angry. Telling me “what was wrong with me… To take a chill pill… that the event was so much fun” this part was new to me. He never did this before he was always ashamed.
So I did what every bitchy wife would and secretly dressed up and took a taxi to a mall just to leave him and his hangover to deal with our kids and potentially miss the first night of the bachelor party. But instead his parents came to the rescue leaving him off the hook and diminishing my efforts to make him face real consequences of his stupidity.
He is still on the bachelor thing. We haven’t spoken since Friday. He texted me a couple of times on Saturday saying he was sorry but so very vaguely that sounded more like he didn’t wanna deal with this once he comes back today on Sunday destroyed, hangover and possibly drunk…
I don’t know what to do!! I decided to have June as a sober month myself. Planned on doing some trips on my own which I’ve never done since the babies are born!.. And maybe have a talk to him? But he will laugh at my face if I tell him he has a drinking problem, specially cause of last weekend we both drank like that!
Oh please give me your insight. I feel at a loss. I live in his country and have no family or many friends here!.. He was so far my rock but something feels so off!.. I even low key feel he cheated on me idk why. He isn’t the type but idk. What should I do?

2023.06.04 08:26 TempesT_0021 Blood shall reign (M4F medieval high fantasy rp, adv. Lit)

She was the first of her kind, the first child born with both mortal and divine blood flowing through her veins. Her mother was Nyx, the goddess of the night and moon while her father had been a talented amd ambitious sorcerer. Their love was forbidden and the gods tried to force Nyx to turn her back on the mortal, Nyx adamantly refused and eventually gave birth to a daughter.
As the child grew so did her power, reluctantly the gods had little choice but to acknowledge her amd so the time came for her to be tested. They wished to see whether she was worthy of taking her place amongst them, they believed she woukd be honoured but they neglected to take into account the mortal side of her. Why should she live amongst those that considered her less? She had the power to claim the mortal world and rule it as her own kingdom.
Turning her back on her divinity, Mephala sort to take control of the mortal world and shape it in her image. Sure the mortal races would resist but she would bring them to heel. She created a new type of sorcery, a sorcery using blood. She gathered followers and taught them this vile sorcery, granting power to those not lucky enough to born with magic and creating the first blood shamans. Her acolytes weren't enough and she would need an army, one she found within a primal group of orcs. With her blood sorcery she corrupted and changed them, creating the first Urai.
Within the ranks of the Urai, she choose the strongest amd twisted them even more, these would become the blood marked. With everything in order, she brought war and started with the continent of Elythia. Divided, the mortal races were quick to be overwhelmed and driven to the brink of defeat. It was only when they banded together that they managed to resist, heroes arose and blessed by the gods themselves they were able to to eventually defeat and vanquish Mephala. They believed that defeatimg Mephala would cause her forces to collapse and they were partly right, her followers scattered and her armies fled and disbanded but she was a corruption. Whilst her physical form perished, her influence remained, at least in secret it did.
1500 years passed, history became legend and the world moved on.....
Panic gripped the city of Harwatch, citizens huddled behind its great walls while guards stood alongside adventurers, mercenaries and almost anyone capable of holding a weapon or flinging a spell. Commanders barked orders whilst those in charge struggled to understand what they were seeing, of course they knew what they were seeing but processing it was another thing entirely. They knew the enemy advancing was Urai, many adventurers had taken at least one job to drive away the red skined brutes. What was difficult to comprehend was the numbers, Urai were tribal and rarely gathered in groups more them a dozen strong and never more then two dozen. Now they were seeing around a thousand making their way towards the city. If that wasn't problem enough, the champion of the city, a high ranked and valiant knight was nowhere to be seen. Unbeknownst to all but a few, the champion was at that moment clutching what remained of his arm, the cold hands of death slwoly closed in around him as an assassin moved to finish th job....
Hey there and thanks for reading this long. Currently I'm looking to start a new Role play set in the world that I have started to create. It is a medieval high fantasy world, think dungeons and dragons style. I'm looking for a partner 21+ that enjoys world building and character development, one that is happy to throw in their own ideas to not only develop the story but the world as well. Ideally I would love to create a story that combines action, adventure, drama and romance. As for roles, well I have nothing set in mind and so an oc could be anything, open to almost ideas. Please know that I only use discord, third person and looking for a partner that writes at around the adv. Lit level. Thank you amd feel free to send a message if this interests you.

2023.06.04 08:24 ArrivalUpset6475 Health bio

There aren’t many people on here so I thought I’d post my health bio in case anyone is looking for answers and finds my info helpful.
2003 age 22: flew to Madagascar, which was nearly 24 hours of airplanes and then we also did several boat rides, of at least an hour each. I was on an anti-malarial medication. I noticed that when I walked, it felt like the jungle was whizzing by me. I felt very weird, a bit dizzy and like my brain wasn’t keeping up with everything around me. The episode lasted about 4 weeks, and I assumed it was the anti-malarials that were doing it to me.
2008: flew to Belize. Again was taking anti-malarial medication. Again we had a lot of boat rides, including a full day of snorkeling off a small boat. I felt like I was still on the boat after I got off. That feeling lasted about 6 weeks. I saw an ENT who said maybe it could be a reaction to the anti-malarials, gave me an 8” thick medical textbook and suggested I sit in his office and look it up myself. I decided to go home and try google instead (which wasn’t nearly as robust as google today is). I felt like I was walking on a trampoline, and even when I wasn’t moving, I was still rocking.
2009: I flew to see my dad and was fine in the way there. A couple days after returning home, I felt the rocking feeling start, faintly at first and then getting stronger. It felt like I was on a boat being tossed by the sea. The feeling got stronger and stronger and I went to see a different ENT. He ordered an MRI and I had a complete sinus blockage, but he still didn’t think that explained everything. He sent me to a neurologist who laughed at me and said “well it’s not MS. I don’t know why you’re here.” For about a month, I couldn’t get out of bed; I was so exhausted and weak, and the vertigo was so strong. I had a weird g-force feeling like I was being physically pushed to one side or another. After about 8 or 9 weeks, the episode faded away. I did have a sinus surgery but only after I was better. At this point, I knew something was up. I found info about mal de Debarquement online but it was limited. It also sounded like it was something people got and had forever, not episodic like mine.
2011: triggered again but this time by a car ride. All my family lived out of town so I had to travel if I wanted to see them. Suspecting that planes were a trigger, we decided to drive from Arizona to Oregon. I got triggered and again the episode lasted 2 months. I again felt weak along with bouncing, rocking vertigo and disorientation. We decided to move to be closer to my mom and sister since traveling was clearly a trigger for me.
I went on to be triggered in 2012 by stress after a surgery (endometriosis) and in 2014 by a 1 hour ferry ride. Both times my symptoms were rocking vertigo as if I were on a boat, plus exhaustion, migraines, exercise intolerance. My labs and other tests all came back basically normal. I started seeing Dr Jeff Brown, who co-wrote the first article about MdDS, and he diagnosed me with M de Debarquement but said he was mystified by my episodes, but thought we could try Xanax and prednisone before travel next time I fly. In 2015 I got to test it out, and I flew and didn’t get triggered! I would have been thrilled except I felt there was no way to know if the preventative measures worked or if I just wouldn’t have been triggered.
In 2017 I was triggered due to a lot of stress, plus a 20 minute light rail ride downtown. I had a small lesion on my face and was diagnosed with shingles on the vestibular nerve. The episode was so intense, it felt like two layers of vertigo at once. I could feel like MdDS rocking but also a slow rotational spinning. It was completely debilitating. It lasted 2 months. I had vestibular testing done and it came back that I have endolymphatic hydrops, so Dr Brown added “atypical Ménière’s disease” to my Mal de Debarquement diagnosis.
2018: i tried the Xanax before flying again but I took too little and was triggered.
2019: flew to Panama and did not get triggered! Used about 2.5 mg Xanax for the first flight and a top off of another 1.0-1.5 mg on the second leg. Success!
2021: I got triggered on a 45 minute kayak trip. The episode lasted a year, and about 4 months in, I had the “2 layers” of vertigo again plus one 24/7 migraine for two months. I was out of work for 2.5 months. I was so weak I couldn’t walk around the block. I used to walk 5 miles for fun, and I couldn’t even walk 3 houses up the street and back.
2023: I was triggered playing a VR game (only 6 months after the previous episode faded away). So far this episode has lasted 4.5 months. I keep narrowing my life little by little. No flying? Let’s drive. No long car trips? Let’s try short trips. No short trips? Let’s try VR.
I don’t go many places anymore and I just go to work and go back home. I garden, I paint, I play with my cat. I used to not get dizzy/vertigo in the car, but now I do. I have trouble looking at screens and reading. I listen to audio books. I still have no real answers and no treatment plan. It’s been really hard.

2023.06.04 08:24 Rudy_86 Question about EQ schematic

Question about EQ schematic
Hi diyers,
I'm looking to build an EQ pedal, most likely PedalPCB 6 Band EQ, potentiometer version. Looking through the schematic, I have two questions.
Resistors R101 and R102 set the op amp bias, for virtual ground, to 1/2 of supply. Why are they different values? 330K and 470K? Is it to compensate for voltage drop over D100 protection diode? I always see two equal value resistors.
Also, why would the output of Opamp IC2.1 be used for the circuit voltage reference, instead of the R101, R102 Junction?
Thanks Rudy.

2023.06.04 08:23 plastic_fre My cat bit a nurse at the emergency hospital and she reported my cat (Texas)

I’ve been crying non stop since I got the call Friday. On May 29th, I took my cat to the emergency room bc she threw up plastic. The nurse then came in to tell me that she bit the vet and that I’ll have to sign a paper. The weird thing is that I never received a paper and the vet never mentioned a bite. I even asked during check out if there’s anything I should do or sign and was told no.
Friday I got a phone call from animal control saying the nurse reported me bc my cat bit her which is weird bc the nurse said my cat bit the vet. Since the hospital was in a different jurisdiction, they sent the bite case to my city and all I can do now is wait.
I’ve become really paranoid bc I’m scared that someone will come and take my cat. I was reading my city ordinance regarding bites and it says that there is an option to quarantine at home if the pet had current rabies vaccination when the incident occurred and if the owner’s house is secured and won’t allow the animal to escape.
My cat was born in a shelter 8 years ago so she always has had her rabies vaccine and has always been licensed with the city. She has never gone outside. She is strictly indoors. When we come home from shopping, we always go in first and hide her so there’s no chance of her escaping. She gets seen by the vet 1-2 times a year.
I called my city’s animal control just to ask and was told that animal control would take her and she would have to be in a facility for 10 days. But I don’t understand. It’s been 5 days already. Why did it take long for me to be called about this? Also I think animal control is closed on weekends so by Monday it would be 7 days but does that mean they’ll still take her? The law states that they need to be in quarantine for no more than 10 days following the incident. What if it’s been 5 days already? My cat has not been in contact with anyone. She never goes outside at all and we have no other pets. Does that mean they will add 10 more days on top of the 5-7 days it has passed?
I understand that bites have to be reported but I’m just so scared of having my cat taken away. She suffers from severe anxiety and her being away will definitely cause a decline of health.
The whole bite incident seems to shady to me too. My cat does get scared at the vets but she would just try to hide in a corner and tuck her head in never bite unless provoked. My cat needed an x ray, blood work and an ultrasound and when I asked the second nurse if my cat would be sedated, she said no bc my cat hasn’t shown any signs of being violent. That she is just scared and defeated so she’s calm. The vet also told me the same thing. They did the x ray, ultrasound and blood work with no sedation. I don’t understand why the first nurse told me my cat bit the vet but the animal control officer said the nurse told him that the cat bit her. I don’t understand why would they decide to do the x ray, blood work and ultrasound if she bit someone. I could’ve taken her someplace else. There are like 4 different pet ERs where I live. I’m so confused over everything.
Also, why can’t the city allow me to keep my cat at home for quarantine. She has been licensed with the city for 8 yrs. They can access her records. The city ordinance allows for home quarantine, so why did the lady I talked to on the phone tell me “she will be taken away by animal control, be placed in a facility for 10 days and there’s nothing you can do about it” when I was basically in tears and when she later admitted that the bite case hasn’t been transferred to them. I’m so scared, I don’t know what to do.

2023.06.04 08:23 Historical-Count-908 FGO Story Rant.

(Warning, super long post incoming)
Ok, humour me, this is a rant I'm releasing on the story of FGO, now that I've finally managed to finish all the story up until LB 5.2(I haven't done Heiyan-kyo yet, gonna do that one later, after LB6).
So uh yeah, I managed to complete it all, all up until Olympus, and here are my thoughts on everything.(My thoughts on Arc 2 are especially controversial I think).
Definitely nice, it improved quite a lot, went from just a boring plot thread meant to get us from fight to fight, to an honestly unteresting story, with great character writing and genuine themes.
In terms of Arc 1, I'd obviously say the last three singularities were the best, and of them I honestly preferred Babylonia the most, followed by Camelot, followed by Temple of Time.
I think Arc 1 had some nice stuff in it, it was a cool introduction, and the first four singularities were a frankly great way to lower my standards right before hitting me with some genuinely good content in the form of Camelot and Babylonia.
For me, Babylonia was the best singularity as it was honestly the best combination of both story and presentation. It had both story chapters, awesome music, great presentation, the inclusion of field effects, and just some really fun gameplay. That's nothing to say of the story itself either of course, which really hyped me up, made me appreciate Gilgamesh, made me laugh, and also genuinely made me gape in awe at a few scenes, so yeah, it was certainly one of the best ones.
Now, Arc 1.5 was also pretty special, my personal favourite singularity here was Shimousa with Shinjiku at a close second. I mean, I really like them both, and both had some really cool stuff in them, but Shimousa still took the cake because of some stuff-
For one, Shimousa had a really kickass soundtrack, it introduced Blood Wind, Unalloyed Blade Works etc. It also had a really cool asthetic, and an awesome concept too, it had a surprising amount of cinematography in it's finale, and let's not forget some incredible scenes like the Tsumukari Muramasa and A DUEL BETWEEN MIYAMOTO MUSASHI AND SASAKI KOJIRO(seriously, unbelievably hype.)
And finally, when we get to Arc 2, the lostbelt continuum, I get a lot of my hot takes ready, and detailed explanations to go with them.
For one, I gotta preface by saying that I was kinda dissapointed by Olympus, like, it had great presentation, but story wise, it was actually super dry right up until the finale. Like it was basically just us slowly fighting all the gods, and while the fights were really hard(F*ck you Demeter), it was honestly kinda dissapointing how little good story content there was right up until the finale. And don't get me wrong, that final stretch is great, it's really awesome and had tons of really cool moments, but in the end, one good final section just isn't enough to completely make up for a kinda boring start and mid way point. Also that final showdown with Zeus was... really bad, like god awful.
Firstly Zeus's design was not intimidating, the music was underwhelming, and his voice was ridiculous, like really though, I spent all that time thinking that Zeus had a heavy and intimidating voice, his actual voice was just dumb, like it genuinly really threw me for a loop, but uh, I digress.
With all that said, my two favourite lostbelts were 100% Yugakurukshetra and Atlantis, LB 4 and 5.
But uh, I was surprised to find LB 4 to be... well really underrated, like huh, I LOVED LB 4, I genuinly thought it found a fantastic balance between presentation and story, with both it's presentation and story being amazing, and I'ma be honest, NOTHING, has hyped me up more than that final fight between Karna and Arjuna. And Nothing has topped the sheer gameplay satisfacton I got after soloing Godjuna with Super Karna.
But also, uh, I really don't see a lot of LB 4 love online, most people just kinda ignore it, and most of the time, people prefer everything over it, even Olympus, and some really average stuff. Like, it genuinly surprised me.
The best guess I can give as to why LB 4 is so under-appreciated as compared to everything else, is just because no one really knows much about the Mahabharata I guess, I mean, I can understand that, since the Mahabharata is really friggin long, and also an entirely Hindu religious text, so I can see why people wouldn't quite understand the significance of KARNA AND ARJUNA HAVING A REMATCH(and here I thought that Musashi v/s Kojiro would be difficult to top in hype).
Also, uh, maybe the LB is difficult to understand and appreciate if you don't have experience with the Mahabharata? It never felt that way to me, but I already know plenty about the Mahabharata, so I don't exactly think I can be a fair judge of that metric.
But all that aside, LB 4 was fantastic, it had incredibly hype moments sure, but it also had good writing, Arjuna's breakdown makes a lot of sense, and our entire conflict with him had some really good themes and questions about what it means to be a god, what makes a god, and divinity in general.
Furthur in the good writing department, Lakshmi Bai was a really cool representation of survivors guilt, and was just in general a really cool character, especially considering that she was a real person and a real freedom fighter.
And of course, poor Ganesha/Jinako who had to put up with the most pain and bullcrap out of everyone, and really put up with some genuine torture for everyone's sake.
I also found the whole gifted divinities thing to be a really interesting concept, alongside all the ensuing chaos with the time travel stuff to be suitably awesome, and what really can be said about that epic finale, other than that it gave goosebumps in a way nothing from FGO ever has.(Seriously, I'm really curious to see if FGO can pull out a fight that tops the sheer magnitude of a rematch between Karna and Arjuna).
Of course, that only leaves me with Atlantis to discuss, which yeah, was really nice, I really found Atlantis to have one of the most distinct atmospheres in FGO, like, it FELT different, it seemed a lot more chill somehow, a lot more focused on characters and comedy, but also some really touching and heartwarming stuff.
Now, I have my personal gripes with the story here as well, for one, a lot of it just felt like running around island to island, collecting power-ups and equipment, the 'story' in this case was very barebones, but that was made up for by the fact that Atlantis really seems to put a huge focus on it's characters, seriously, everyone fits really well.
All the characters in this one are awesome, and I really mean it, Achilles proves why he is one of the greatest heros of all time by holding off an entire army AND Chiron, despite being shot in the heel and losing both his Armor and Shield, still does spectacularly. Orion really pulled of something really sweet and honsestly heartwarming with his final game plan, meanwhile Jason was the true MVP of this lostbelt.
Seriously though, Jason was fantastic, this lostbelt did something I couldn't have expected ever, it made me genuinely like Jason. Like legit though, Jason is goddamn hilarious, he is so crazily aware of, and traumatized by his source material that I often found myself laughing at some of his comments, pieces of advice, and confessions of trauma.
Personally i didn't actually care much about Charolette, and the romance between her and our MC, I just wasn't that invested, it didn't exactly have a fantastic build up, a cool end ig, but I just didn't care too much, it was decent, just average.
I personally think it would have been much better if it focused slightly more on Orion and Artemis's romance, but hey, the LB was still pretty good.
And that about concludes my thoughts. I have a lot more on my mind of course, and a lot more I can talk about, but for now I think I'll just leave it that.
My personal favourite stories were Camelot, Babylonia, Yugakshetra and Atlantis, tho I'm having some difficulty comparing them.
Definitely found Yugakshetra to be the most underrated, wish it got a bit more love, I personally really liked it, but that's about it, I'm planning on putting this post in the grandorder subreddit as well.
So, finally, any thoughts on my thoughts?
EDIT: (This post got removed... I think because I didn't spoiler tag it? So I'm just gonna try and repost it with the proper tags, please tell me if there's any other reason it got removed).

2023.06.04 08:23 Dapper-Combination47 Is it safe to carry fully loaded

I've kept my 1851 Navy loaded before. being smaller and easier to carry than either of my ARs or my little .22 I've taken it out into the woods in case I ran into something. But I always had a cylinder unloaded. Recently, however, a friend of mine did a "stress test" on my caps. They dropped the hammer from half cock, let the hammer rest on a capped nipple, and smacked the hammer with their hand. none of the caps went off.
Secondly, we took a cap by itself and placed it on the wooden table. We smacked caps with a mallet and mashed them with the butt of a knife. The results were the caps being crushed without going off or embedding themselves into the wood of the table.
Lastly, my friend ( I was unwilling to partake) griped my revolver by the barrel and hit the table with the grip of the gun and then proceeded to holster it and intentionally fall down to show the gun wouldn't go off just because I stumble sometimes.
I use a covered holster to protect the gun from moisture and for retention whenever I find myself at a weird angle.
I've carried the gun around before but I always kept the cylinder under the hammer unloaded and have avoided much of the more unstable areas where I've found myself slipping and falling before.
Based on this "stress test" I want to try using the safety pins on the cylinder and having a sixth shot. Do you feel this is a sound course of action and/or have any advice?

2023.06.04 08:23 Disastrous-Union-693 Tic/compulsion/habit/what is this?

This is lowkey embarrassing but for the past year or so I haven’t been able to stop making this popping sound with my eyes. It’s hard to explain how I do it but if I rub my eye a certain way it happens. It started when I did it accidentally and thought it was satisfying and I’ve been doing it pretty much constantly since. My eyes are always red and it’s starting to hurt. when I try and stop it feels like I have air trapped behind my eyes, it’s beyond uncomfortable and I always end up caving in. That being said it doesn’t feel involuntary really, just.. very compulsory
People have started asking questions about why I’m doing it and I just have no clue what to say. I have ocd , adhd , and dermatillomania so maybe it’s just a weird biproduct?

2023.06.04 08:22 Aravyr I quit Petco, and begin my new job on Monday!

Entertainingly, when I messaged my boss about the fact I was leaving a few days in advance, I received no reply or calls at all. Today my workday and dayforce have been disabled so I guess it's official now lol! Starting pay is leagues better and raises are so much better and more frequent too.
Since I did not receive any correspondence from him, I will ask y'all here - in regards to accrued PTO that was scheduled/approved to be taken in a month from now, will that be paid out to me? I had 30-some hours saved up.
Separately, if any of you guys were hedging on if you should stay or go, snag a job elsewhere, then free yourself from the petco chains - the literal ones, because even if the environment is good at your store it is a dead end job that will suffocate you, unless you don't need extra cash and enjoy the work, then by all means! My store was okay, some unpleasant coworkers, but I also had coworkers I really liked. No one really enjoys working there anymore unless it's interacting with animals - VCP harassment, bag fee harassment, disgusting owners who don't clean up after their animals, screaming children SQUEAKING TOYS constantly and smacking aquariums, people trying to put animals in tiny enclosures and refusing to listen to any reasonable advice. There's the reverse where people are really excited to own a new animal *and* give it a good life, but between the heat rocks and the 1.2gs and ~specially ordered~ $1000+ reptiles and TEGUS that don't sell for half a year, stuck in a tiny terrarium, inappropriate substrate and inappropriate handling? Infuriating.
You guys wouldn't believe how many complaints I made in my time working here only for almost none of it to be addressed. Yes, let's have the person with the least exotic animal experience become the CAL and not give her any training! Dropping chameleons? No biggie. Carry a skink or said tegu on your head? That's totally fine. Have an unrestrained flighted conure sit on your shoulder for an entire shift while you handle and feed snakes and other animals? Totally acceptable. I couldn't possibly forget the amount of bird shit at the register and around the store that was left uncleaned for weeks, and likely is still there now. I'm just frustrated at the fact she has hurt and put so many animals at risk and it's like no one gives a shit. I tell the GM and he's just like well what can you do, or an "I'll talk to her." and it's all so fake because nothing actually gets changed. I alert about illness in animals and I see that animal for sale for another week until it gets *really* sick or stays the same and either deteriorates and dies or it gets sold sick, or spreads the illness to all the other animals in the cage for the nth time. It's disgusting. It's just frustrating working somewhere that supposedly values animal welfare but even when customers complain about it, nothing changes. The 'funniest' encounter I had was when I saw that same CAL have a juvie blue-tongue skink just... clinging to her shoulder, trying not to slide off while she walked around without holding on to him. I told her she needs to hold on to him and not leave him dangling because they can't climb well and he could die from a drop like that, at the minimum get seriously injured. Like the poor thing was literally about to tumble. But I just got an, "I do this all the time and he's always been fine." and a "We aren't going to see eye to eye on this." Just because he has managed to HANG ON before doesn't mean he will always be able to cling to a vertical, moving surface 6 feet off the ground. Like are you kidding me. I could go on for a hot minute about this CAL honestly lmao. She got in trouble for carrying around the bird all day, so the verdict was just to continue wearing the bird like an accessory, except when the DGM comes by, then oh wow, where's the bird? In it's cage? How convenient. I literally watched this happen each time. She KNOWS she is doing wrong and is trying not to get caught and the GM is LETTING IT HAPPEN. But it makes sense, because VCP is what really matters, right? /s
So, the TLDR here is just find somewhere else before it gets worse. It will get worse. I have never had a job more frustrating than this one and it wasn't even about the workload for me lol. So off I go, to a much healthier and less frustrating environment where I can actually do my work in peace and not be a witness to animal abuse I can do next to nothing about. My only regret is that I didn't leave sooner.

2023.06.04 08:21 bingalls72 I’d like to share an experience I had that has brought me here and given me faith for the first time in my life.

This is going to be long, but I hope after reading this I could possibly be welcomed into this community. I hear voices and have really unsettling intrusive thoughts that are largely tied to my anxiety and paranoia. This happened after a period of rampant pot use (usually combined with a lot of booze) and a few mushroom trips during my first year of college. While I have had 2 psychotic episodes I am not schizophrenic. They were drug induced. Anyways I became socially withdrawn and was so frightened to leave my school apartment that I would not go to classes or even the cafeteria. Everywhere I went on campus where I heard people speaking I would hear the most awful things. Like the whole school was bullying me like I was some kind of freak or pariah. Que more pot use and drinking to numb the pain. I would tell my friends that everywhere I go people were talking shit to me and I didn’t know why or what I did to deserve that treatment. I essentially would just try to numb the pain with weed and alcohol in vast amount. I also vaped high nicotine like it was air. It was on a constant basis. Anyways it ended up with me dropping out of school and ending up in the secure section of the psych ward for a month. I had the most traumatic psychotic episode my psychiatrist had ever heard of. Like a movie playing in my head I was convinced a man like frank castle was rounding up everyone I ever held dear to me even going back years, and the most wonderful friend group I have ever had, and was murdering them in slow and gruesome ways. It started with my roommates. I could see it like a movie and he’d tell me he was using birdshot to prolong their suffering and would shoot them in the face every time multiple times. I could hear constant gunshots and screaming in the exact voices of my dearest friends and family round the clock. I was at a point where my brain sort of shut down it’s emotional center to protect me from the pain. I would just watch the images play of my roommates, mother, father, sister, brother and grandparents being tortured to death by this man. I was just this empty shell, I think my brain was so overloaded by what it thought was happening it just completely shut down my ability to suffer. Which was awful to say the least. None of the medications were helping until the final one brought me back. Not phase 2 of the episode occurred. I don’t want to go into this part but it was just as detailed and horrifying. Essentially I had a religious delusion that I was in a sort of purgatory and was the horseman of death in the biblical apocalypse. It was like the “horseman of death” saw me as the perfect vessel because of all the death I had witnessed and the complete crushing of my soul. I embodied suffering and anguish. I was a very strong agnostic at the time so it was very strange but psychosis can typically cause delusions like this. See people believing they are Christ and such. The thing is I obviously did not want to be the horseman of death. Yet it was like everything that was happening in my mind would just play out like a movie and I was so out of it I believed it to be true. Also I should note while this was happening there were other people there in similar states screaming and crying and fighting the behavioral health techs. Eventually I got better and left but I hadn’t really been the same since. You can’t possibly imagine the relief and fucking peace I felt knowing that it was all fake, and that everyone I held dear to me was just fine. In the year following I took those meds and it caused much weight gain and I moved in with those friends but unfortunately I smoked pot again and had another psychotic episode. This one was a slow burner though. It ramped up very slowly through November and eventually I went to the doctor when I thought that a black lion demon called Buer was cursing me because a coven of witches wanted me dead. And I could see them doing a blood ritual. Essentially I felt a dark presence wash over me like all the joy and happiness and passions I had were completely taken from me. So I thought I would make a pact with this demon to go back to they way I was in order to keep being the bright person I was just a moment before. Well it turns out this deal meant eternal servitude to this demon. Again I was completely out of it and believing things I never would normally believe. And like a movie in my head these things would play out. Well I went immediately to get back on an antipsychotic and I drastically improved again. Now I know you may be wondering where the connection to heathenry happens. Well this is what happens yesterday. I was hearing voices saying rude things at work I had been feeling this growing darkness around me for a while. and I was just begging for help to anything that would listen. That’s when I heard a deep and calm voice tell me that I was one of his children (like distant af) like many others. I instinctively asked if this was Odin. And yeah that sounds crazy but to me my ancestors were from Sweden so there is Norse blood in me (albeit diluted obviously) and he said a few words and I asked if there was anything he could do to help me. And he said that he could help to help my affliction if the mind. I thanked him over and over and asked what I could do in return. Almost immediately I felt like something was cast out of me. And I felt like I was back to myself before all of the terrible experiences happens and just felt at peace for the first time since that downward spiral freshman year of college. He hasn’t spoken to me since and that makes sense. Since then I’ve been just so much more myself. I’m social and funny and feel able to self actualize. In fact I’m already on that path I think. It’s like he got rid of my mental illness and anxiety and paranoia. To be honest it’s the first miracle or whatever you call it I’ve ever experienced. Some of you guys might think im just schizophrenic but I can assure you that I am not. I don’t know if the demonic delusions were real but they certainly felt real. And all I know is I don’t feel at all like all that trauma is affecting me anymore. I am eternally grateful for what has happened and perhaps some of you will call me a nut job. But the truth is I’ve just had some drug induced psychosis’s. And I finally feel free of all of that. I am mostly curious to hear what people well versed have to say about my story. I hope I’m not ridiculed but am sorta expecting it. Anyways I am now going to learn everything I can about heathenry and try to put it to good use!

Watch Now: Evil Dead Rise Online Free
The Evil Dead franchise is officially back, and it’s bringing yet another fright of a movie. When the last film debuted in theaters a decade ago in 2013, no one expected for creator Sam Raimi to have a renewed focus on a series that started back in 1981. Today, with yet another dose of nostalgia, fans of the horror genre are gearing up to watch the continuation via Evil Dead Rise.
Directed by Lee Cronin, the film follows Ellie (Alyssa Sutherland) a young woman who lives with her three children in a Los Angeles apartment. When her sister Beth (Lily Sullivan) drops in for a visit, an earthquake hits their building and leaves a hole in the parking lot. The kids investigate and realize that they hold the Book of the Dead, which unleashes an evil spirit that finds and possesses Ellie. Will she wreak havoc on the family and lose everything she’s worked for, or will everyone make it out alive?
It’s definitely an intriguing concept, and longtime viewers will want to see it in any way they can. But for those who are wondering how to watch and stream Evil Dead Rise from their home, it will be a while before that happens. Luckily, we did some research and have an idea about a streaming date

2023.06.04 08:21 Longjumping-Leg6358 My experience of attending an event yesterday… still got a long way to go

Yesterday I attended a day festival, had notified the organisers in advance had all the relevant documentation. However my experience at the entrance was not pleasant.
As soon as I reached bag search I declared my medicine. Fine at first, then the security guard saw my grinder and vape ‘can’t bring those in’. Then he asked what my medicine was again, I repeated medicinal cannabis and everything switched. I was told I was unable to enter, ‘we don’t know what is and isn’t prescribed’, that it wasn’t something allowed on site… this was in the open and lots of people were watching. The worst bit for me was when they took my medicine away from me, and opened it up in front of other staff and other festival goers.
I was calmly repeating the communications I had with the accessibility team (I began comms with them 2 months ago) the law, showing my prescription etc but it fell on deaf ears and caused me to have a panic attack due to how I was being treated despite having done everything right.
Another member of staff took us to the accessibility team to resolve the issue. And that team was lovely and appalled I had had this experience. They ensured me that staff should have known about medicines and they will escalate it.
I have had to deal with a lot of internal stigma about my medicine and yesterday didn’t help with feeling like I’m doing something wrong. I know I wasn’t but I am unable to even tell certain friends and family about my medication due to their beliefs and it’s taken me a long time to be comfortable even just medicating before I see them for fear they could tell.
I am neurodivergent and this is the only medication I have found that doesn’t suppress me to try make me ‘normal’. It stops me from becoming overwhelmed, and able to cope in social situations. It is a vital lifeline for me. Yesterday was my first time in 4 years attending event like this, I haven’t attended a festival this big and busy for 7. I have been a medical cannabis user for about a year now and it is a vital part of my daily life. My progress since taking MC is why I thought I would be ok. I did end up having a nice time but I was really affected by that incident. I never felt settled and was on edge all day.
I’ve never had any experience like this before, normally it’s just a ‘oh didn’t know you could get this on prescription’. Maybe I was naive to think I would always be welcomed. If one person in the chain of responsibility doesn’t understand or want to listen there will always be problems.

2023.06.04 08:20 MeetProfessional7254 Seeing some posts about Ems / Nurse conflict/ healthcare worker conflict in general

I am a nursing student a PN student to be exact , I want to bridge eventually but did half a dental hygiene program first (which I hated) so I am making up for lost time and need to start work faster (I need money). I am Canadian so I understand in other parts of the world may have different relationships/roles/stereotype's of health care professionals.
I came past an old post in this sub basically saying that people overestimate nurses abilities or ED nurses are mean. Personally as someone who is training to be a PN I am basically bottom of the barrel in the nursing world and health care world as far as respect or "power". I have done lifeguard training in the past as well and have EMTs , RMT's , RRT's in my class looking to change up their education. I personally have no clue why there is any "beef" between health care workers in general. I was also on this med student page and they were saying that other health care workers who don't go to Med school aka not doctors aka us lie and say we go to med school (like okay? I don't think so) . Personally in my clinical rotations so far I haven't had to much contact with a lot of other health care workers outside maybe nurses , physicians , PCAs and physiotherapists. Everyone seemed to get along pretty good. I've seen some patient staff conflicts but still only a handful. The only "rudeness" or "entitlement" I've seen in person was from some Physicians in Obstetrics and Pediatrics (they were really rude to my instructors and just acted super strange , it was so unnecessary) and med students blaming us for misplacing things etc. But that's it.
I read here that some ems people believe nurses are more respected then they are and are paid better. In the UK I have heard nurses are paid absolutely horrible and have no authority or respect and in my country (Canada) EMT's/Paramedics and RN's are paid around the same as alot of other people in Healthcare (30-40 an hour range). I had a really good relationship with the EMT girls in my class and also sort of believe that EMT's and nurses have the most to do out of any other areas in health care. I do think it's especially cool that EMT's go out in the world to get these people. I watch Night watch New Orleans EMT's when I start to forget there are good people in the world. So ya only really received some shade/ entitlement from physicians and med students so far. I believe health care has way to much in the way of social "hiarchy" for example my mom/ a lot of people don't even see me as a nurse! That's the general pop though.
What are your thoughts? PS I considered being an EMT but I didn't get my drivers license until a little later in life (I failed my test like 3 times and gave up for awhile). I think human beings as a whole are just not great and very judgmental. It is very exhausting.
