2023.06.04 09:32 Calm-Bit-8780 idea for horror game i need to dump

been thinking about this idea for hours but have no game dev skill whatsoever so i am just leaving this here so it feels like its out there
In short: Phasmophobia meets I'm on observation duty
details: 4 player co-op, one person is on the camera feed switching between rooms, in a seperate location away from the "house" that the other 3 players will be in. this player is bound to this area and most of the function will be manning the camera feed. instead of reporting the anomalies then they just disappear, the 3 players inside the house have to work together, communicate with the person on cams to find anomalies and physically remove them and take them out of the house. rooms are dark and players have flashlight only for light. camera operator has multiple camera "filters" (normal, night vis, thermal, etc) they must flip between to detect certain entities and warn their friends inside of their presence for they may be invisible to the 3 inside. may be a good touch to have distinct rooms that require players to open doors to enter each room... the finer details would be for someone with more game developing sense to iron out but thats the jist of it. players must survive the alloted time (a full "night"), keeping the number of anomalies down while avoiding and possible directly confronting/fighting certain live entitites. maybe each of the 3 players inside can have their own unique roles/tools to encourage teamwork and communication (and also cause massive chaos)
do anyone think this is mildly interesting of an idea?
edit: also there could be 3 entities that represent the three wise monkeys: See No Evil (Removes or hinders the players on the inside's ability to see for a time, putting pressure on camera operator to guide them safely), Hear no Evil (players on the inside lose their hearing ability for a time) Speak no evil (players lose their comms for a time)

2023.06.04 09:32 0lancity 0lancity Games List 2023

Personal posts seem to not accept comments after some time, so reuploading
Last updated on 4-Jun-2023
I host small LANs with personal friends, and got really sick of having to constantly update games - therefore I built a library of games that never need updating, just copy from the USB
I am very strict about these factors:
below is my updated list
Fully working and tested LAN Games:
Games that work perfectly fine on LAN
however but I deem not fun or suitable for my LAN parties due to : bad graphics, large filsize, gameplay issue or even unfun with a large skill gap (Your Mileage May Vary)
Notes from above games: Counter Strike Global Offensive - Skill differences make the game not fun Demigod - Tested this between 2 laptops and seemed too clunky to be fun Fist full of frags - cant seem to track down a good version of this game - may revisit Monday Night Combat - chaotic, hard to know what is going on Orion Prelude - a bit dated and gameplay not amazing Running with Rifles - Top down shooter, however maps are huge Halo2 : bad FOV, Halo CE is much better Dino D-Day: has 20,000 files, long to copy of the type of game it is
Backlog - Look into later / need more development / testing
Games that I've tried in the past or previously investigated
these have been COMPLETELY scrapped from all future testing - likely because they are broken, has extra DRM or maybe some other reason

2023.06.04 09:31 LessRain On June 12th AskPhotography will be going dark

Don’t Let Reddit Kill 3rd Party Apps!
What’s going on?
A recent Reddit policy change threatens to kill many beloved third-party mobile apps, making a great many quality-of-life features not seen in the official mobile app permanently inaccessible to users.
On May 31, 2023, Reddit announced they were raising the price to make calls to their API from being free to a level that will kill every third party app on Reddit, from Apollo to Reddit is Fun to Narwhal to BaconReader.
Even if you’re not a mobile user and don’t use any of those apps, this is a step toward killing other ways of customizing Reddit, such as Reddit Enhancement Suite or the use of the old.reddit.com desktop interface .
This isn’t only a problem on the user level: many subreddit moderators depend on tools only available outside the official app to keep their communities on-topic and spam-free.
What’s the plan?
On June 12th, many subreddits will be going dark to protest this policy. Some will return after 48 hours: others will go away permanently unless the issue is adequately addressed, since many moderators aren’t able to put in the work they do with the poor tools available through the official app. This isn’t something any of us do lightly: we do what we do because we love Reddit, and we truly believe this change will make it impossible to keep doing what we love.
The two-day blackout isn’t the goal, and it isn’t the end. Should things reach the 14th with no sign of Reddit choosing to fix what they’ve broken, we’ll use the community and buzz we’ve built between then and now as a tool for further action.
What can you do?
1. Complain. Message the mods of /reddit.com, who are the admins of the site: message reddit: submit a support request: comment in relevant threads on /reddit, such as this one, leave a negative review on their official iOS or Android app- and sign your username in support to this post. 2. Spread the word. Rabble-rouse on related subreddits. Meme it up, make it spicy. Bitch about it to your cat. Suggest anyone you know who moderates a subreddit join us at our sister sub at /ModCoord. 3. Boycott and spread the word…to Reddit’s competition! Stay off Reddit entirely on June 12th through the 13th- instead, take to your favorite non-Reddit platform of choice and make some noise in support! 4. Don’t be a jerk. As upsetting this may be, threats, profanity and vandalism will be worse than useless in getting people on our side. Please make every effort to be as restrained, polite, reasonable and law-abiding as possible.

2023.06.04 09:30 c_rhin0 Jet lag and our almost 16mo

We just came back from the Philippines after a 2 week vacay. They are 15hrs ahead, the plane ride was 12hrs + layovers, etc. When we got there, it was easy for us to get her on some sort of schedule because we got there in the morning and we used the entire day to keep busy. When we arrived back home in california, we got home at midnight 🥲 and she had slept through most of the flight because it was “bedtime” in the Philippines.
She fell asleep at 3:30a the first night and we woke her up at her usual wake up time at 7. Last night, she went to bed at her usual 8pm, woke a little after 10pm, got her back in bed around 1:15am and woke her up at 7. Tonight, she went to bed at 8, woke up at 11, and now I’m here at 12:25am in the dark, trying to get her to sleep so I can transfer her back. We’ve been keeping to her usual “schedule”, resulting in a grumpy babe, but it seems to be working okay.
She’s an independent sleeper, but I figured since she is severely jet lagged, letting her fall asleep with me after her wake up and transferring is fine for now. Or am I creating bad habits? How long should I expect these wake ups to last? It’s only one wake up (knock on wood lol) so far. Naps have been fine. She takes 2 a day, 1hr each. Any tips? Gimme your jet lag stories.

2023.06.04 09:24 SpiderverseNerd Theory for how Beyond the Spiderverse might end (Spoilers for Across the Spiderverse!!)

So I have a theory for how Beyond the Spiderverse might end based on a few things but there are admittedly a few loose ends that I’m hoping will be tied up in the 3rd movie.
I think that while The Spot is a humorous villain that has become a multiversal threatening villain, I think he won’t truly end up being the villain of the story. His motivation for being a villain might be out of spite for Miles blowing up the collider with him near, but ultimately he craves recognition for being useful or having a purpose. I believe that he will end up reaching a conclusion where he ultimately has a change of heart (and thus not killing Miles’s dad) but not one to where he becomes a hero. I think that either they find a way to nerf his powers, reverse them, or he simply gives up his life in an attempt to save Miles’ universe (i.e. What happens if The Spot jumps into the black hole of a universe that is unraveling?). Regardless of the conclusion, The Spot will not be the villain that threatens the multiverse.
This leaves a few other options for main villains: Miguel O’Hara who has clearly shown he has a darker side that is unexplored, or Earth-42 Miles Morales that could want revenge for the chaos his world was thrown that includes his fathers death. But what if the villain at the end is neither? (the “at the end” part is important) What if the antagonist that suffered the most and has the most to be angry about is Earth-42 Aaron Davis? He would have seen his brother die and his nephew not realize his own potential and fall down a dark path, leaving only himself to act as a mentor. If he were to see another version of Miles living what appears to be a happy life as Spider-Man with his brother still alive, it might send him into an inexplicable rage for how his own world has ended up. He, along with misguided Earth-42 Miles, could make a trip to Alchemex where they recreate the spider from that universe (possibly with DNA from Miles and splitting it up). Then Earth-42 Miles could potentially become Spiderman in his own universe, but I believe he might have a change of heart from being a villain or rather, being the right hand for exacting “justice” for the troubles of his misguided uncle. His uncle, still believing his version of Miles has yet to reach his potential and now does not want to take revenge for the rough life that universe handed them decides to have the spider bite him instead. This will force both versions of Miles to come together to make his uncle realize that his story doesn’t have to be about revenge. From there the story could end, or it could have Aaron going back to alchemex and recreating a spider for Earth-42 Miles and Aaron could act as the mentor.
Thus ending the movie, with a total of 3 villains in the movie. The Spot, Aaron Davis, and Miguel O’Hara who could act as a villain in the middle of the movie wanting to kill Miles for saving his dad from The Spot and potentially creating an anomaly that could wipe out his universe (before the final villain of Aaron Davis comes into play).
*** Potential end credit scene or teaser scene in the movie Choice A: Miles goes through a portal from a slightly damaged machine (the ones they have on their wrist that I can’t remember bc I’m tired) and lands in the real world, GIVING US OUR FIRST LOOK AT LIVE ACTION MILES AND MAKING THE SPIDERVERSE FRANCHISE CANON MCU CONTENT Choice B: During a fight with Aaron Davis at Alchemex they hurdle through a portal that puts them in the real world, with Donald Glover acting as a live action Earth-42 Aaron Davis and once again GIVING US OUR FIRST LOOK AT LIVE ACTION MILES (although this wouldn’t technically make the Spiderverse franchise canon since it’s a different version of Aaron, which means Miles could already exist in the live action MCU).

2023.06.04 09:23 thwsawl90 How can I pull myself out from a dark place?

34/M. I'm a freelance writer from India who is no longer enjoying the work. It's perpetuating my mental health issues and vice versa. My career decisions didn't pan out as expected and I'm left with very little money and a strong need to make a career switch. I've zeroed down on data analytics but the talks around global recession, saturated market, the possibility of needing to take a major salary hit will take me 10 years behind in life.
This all is occupying my mind and worsening my anxiety and depression. This feels like the dark night of the soul. I'm glad that my parents still support me but the guilt of life that's wasted and restarting is weighing down hard on me.
What can I do to get out of this dark place? Thank you!

2023.06.04 09:20 not_scythelol Ding dong ditched a karen (story)

So my parents are at my moms sisters baby shower, and I didn’t really want to go because i would just be sitting in an uncomfortable chair listen to moms half drunk talk about random stuff. So im staying at my friends house because he has a birthday that we were gonna stay the night at anyway, so i just went there. We were having fun and my friend just downloaded Dead Island 2 so we were chillin for a bit. (Also there were only me, my friend, and another good friend of ours.) And our other friend, who we’ll call jack said that we should go get my vr headset from my house, because its like a 2 to 3 minute walk over there. On the way there, one of us said that we should ding dong ditch someone. My mistake here is agreeing. Something to note here is i was assuming that it was around 7pm because of the semi-dark blue sky. We walked up to a house and we did a not-it type of thing and i ended up losing, so i told them to hide behind a bush. I rung the doorbell and we sprinted so fast a almost ran a whole block. I looked back to see where my friends were and they were close so i laughed. Just so happened a car turning the corner had a lady who was not having any of it that night at the wheel. She honked her horn for a good 5 seconds as she zoomed down the corner we were scared and we just ran to my house since it was right there. We got the oculus and just stood there for a good 30 seconds just confused snd paronoid that she was gonna come around the corner to kill us or something. We just walked out the door with the oculus and locked the door. But guess what? Guess who came around the corner? We see the same car that honked at us pull up in front of my house, and open the door (in the middle of the road by the way,) and stick her hear out the top.
K = angy lady
Op = me
f1 = friend 1
f2 = friend 2
K: Hey! Were you guys just ringing door bells and running?!
Op, f1, f2: What?
K: You were weren’t you?
F2: i mean yeah ig.
K: (Gets out of car and walks on to my yard and private property.)
K: Where do you guys, live?
Op: I dont need to disclose that information to you.
K: Tell me now!
Op: Why do you want to know that?
K: I’ll follow you home then.
F2, op: Dont do that thats weird.
Op: Look, i live here at this house, get off my yard its private property.
K: Or what?!
Op: idk your trespassing.
K: i don’t believe that you live at ths house, unlock the door!
Op: (i unlock the door with the key i had.)
K: Are your parents home? Let me talk to them.
Op: No they’re not (explains the baby shower thing)
K: do you have a cellphone?
Op: yeah.
K: put your parents on the phone.
Op: im not going to do that, get off my yard.
K: i have cameras you know! I have the footage! Im gonna be here tomorrow morning and tell your parents.
Op: Thats all fine and good but they are gonna here from me before you even wake up.
K: They better know!
Op: Cool now get off my yard.
K: (walks to her car and drives off.)
F2: (flips off the car)
Keep in mind that she was screaming the whole time. We all texted our moms to tell them what was going down. F1’s mom starts walking toward us and asked us where K went. AND GUESS WHAT?THE HOUSE WE DING DONG DITCHED JUST SO HAPPENED TO BELONG TO K. F1’s mom went to the house to apologize and we all just walked to f1’s house. His mom wasn’t to mad, she just told us why it was dumb. But something funny just accured to me. She left her kid at home watching jeff the killer videos and he got scared when we rung the doorbell, we rung a doorbell, but she honked her horn at 10 at night. She was standing on my private property and denied the question to get off my property.
TLDR: me and my friend ding dong ditched a karen and she yelled at us and we ended up taking a w.

Female entitlement, am I right? submitted by dreamysera to IncelTear [link] [comments]

2023.06.04 09:09 kumaj1r0 I always left things unsaid for the sake of peace and it led my dear friend to her death.

I honestly couldn't bring myself to open this up to others because it just feels too heavy. I tried opening this up to my family but they just disregard it.
My friend (let's call her Tina) died in an accident last month and I will always blame myself for it. She was so much like a sister to me. My actions indirectly caused her death, all because I kept quiet so that I could keep the "peace" and "friendship" with the other people who are hurting her. And with me tolerating the bullshit she's putting up with those people, our friends, caused everything.
First is our friend, and best friend, J. He's honestly an insensitive, egotistical, self-centered pervert who thinks his sexual jokes are funny and that he's very dependent on others to do stuff for him especially towards Tina. For several years, Tina put up with him but she was so fed up and distanced herself from him (and me, for a certain time) Then she opened up me a bunch of times more than a year ago about this. I could vividly remember just us 2 at the beach at night having this talk. We talked about so kany things and she told me her problems. How her family treats her like shit. Her abusive older siblings being careless and her being the one taking care and feeding her nieces because their parents were neglectful. Her experiences of SAs from different men, some who are her relatives. I could also remember that time when her boyfriend plead me to confront J because she's just so fed up and he can't stand her crying about it.
And on that night at the beach, I told her that I'm going someday but not now because I'm scared of ruining the friendship. And that's one of my faults. I tolerated abusive behavior and that made her distant from us. She isn't hanging out with our friend group anymore (that is, if J is there. We would secretly go out with some other close friends without J because we were just fed up with him).
Next is a former friend of ours: "Mae". Her absolute toxicness and laziness in helping at our thesis was the last straw for Tina and she quitted for a while. And of course, I have a fault in this because Mae was initially my best friend too. I kept quiet and did nothing with Mae's abusive behavior towards Tina as well. Because I was so scared of confrontation. I prioritized myself over her and that was my biggest mistake.
And lastly, the worst part.
Tina finally just went back to college and we're already a year ahead of her. Some friends are still closely keeping in touch with her. But on her current year, she got close with a former classmate of ours (we're formerly the same batch here) who also dropped school before and went back. Let's call her "Joy". Both of them became really close and would even always go to many places. They'd usually have roadtrips that are far from the city. I'm also included sometimes too since I'm the only one who's free and available from our circle. So the 3 of us became close and we would always go to different places, just living the life.
It was fun and exciting at first. Going to bars late at night, drinking. Going to faraway, beautiful places, we frequently visit beaches from different towns. And I'd usually be the one who would drive them to our destinations and when going home. I always made sure they're home safe, especially Tina. I wasn't really close with Joy until this year and I only tag along for the fun and because Tina's there.
But over the months, it just gets out of hand. We frequently drink travel further and further. Me and Tina were just following Joy's whims. Sometimes forced to. But we went for the sake of " experience " and "getting along". And Joy's behavior was getting toxic and overwhelming for us. I was getting fed up with Joy only calling me up when she needs something, like some company to listen to her tiring rants or someone to drive her around. And once she gets what she wants, she'll forget you existed until she needs something again.
I always had this hunch that Tina's fed up with Joy too but she's just forced to get. I know damn well that Tina's the type to not say no for the sake of peace too. But I never opened it up to her because she seems to have so much fun with Joy. And that led her to her death.
One night in May, Tina and Joy were planning to go to the next town over because there's a festival. They went after their class (ended at 7pm). The town's a 20-30 minute drive from ours. On that night, I wasn't able to come with them because I have a part-time shift until 10pm. So Tina used her motorcycle instead to drive there with Joy as her passenger. Hours later, it was almost midnight. They're driving home. It was reported that Joy drank so much while Tina only drank soda. And I know that Tina's a slow but steady driver. She'd never speed up on the road especially if it's dark.
But she's too late to realize that the road's been broken off. The warning sign's just right before the broken road. She crashed head frist and died after midnight.
Joy was far from the crash. She was on the asphalt side. She was mostly unscathed and was able to walk around.
Before the accident, there were some witnesses from that town who said that they saw that the motorcycle was swaying left and right.
Joy survived. Tina didn't.
And then I thought that it's Joy's fault. She was a heavy woman and I know best that if she drank so much, she moves around a lot.
But then it dawned on me that it's not just her fault. I had a part in this. Then it all came flooding back and the guilt just becomes heavier each day after the accident.
If only I was braver and confronted J and Mae before, Tina wouldn't had to suffer so much and stay away from the friend group and dropped out. If I called out Joy on her bs and opened up to Tina about it, she would've stayed away and not go on that night.
I was the one who's there. To hear her rants and problems especially about this people. The one who always accompanied her wherever we'd go, with or without Joy. I saw everything. And I barely did anything. I feel so guilty. If I only I said and did something before, she would've been alive right now. We would've been living our lives and prepare to go to med school together. Because of her, I had a direction and purpose in life after college. As long as she's there, I was confident to proceed and explore what life has to offer and have the most fun out of it. And now I feel lost again. I don't know how to proceed anymore. I feel like utter shit.
She was literally the kindest and nicest soul I've ever met. She's one of the few people I feel so comfortable. She doesn't deserve all of the shit she's gone through, and she definitely doesn't deserve this kind of ending. I'll always hate myself for this and I'll carry on this guilt until I die.
I just hope that she would forgive me for all of this.

2023.06.04 09:06 PandaAromatic8901 I bypassed Cam and left her in the cave ^_^

Couldn't be bothered to update (Kingmaker is the one for me!)... but I had an idea on how to leave the dark bitch in the dank cave that turned out to work, so I thought I'd share ^_^
You need a Pet and you'll have to sacrifice Wenduag. 1) Rescue Anevia from the rubble. 2) Put KC & Seelah in hold mode. 3) Have the pet run to & pickup the Holy Sword. 4) Proceed as normal until you defeat the Shield Maze boss... 5) ...and choose to attack Wenduag in the dialog that follows.
Enjoy having left that nasty person busy reviving a corpse by crouching next to him...
Some notes: 1 - bypassing Anevia, Seelah and Cam with e.g. Dimensional Slide will cause the dialog of the Sword to fail, and the not-present Seelah will prevent you from climbing over the rocks (and the game hardlocks when you go back to rescue Anevia). 2 - this prevents KC/Seelah from rushing to the Pet's aid (which would trigger Cam's dialog). 3 - the pet doesn't trigger Cam's dialog, but it can initiate the Holy Sword's dialog (which causes the party to teleport over). 4 - sadly, refusing to help Horgus Gwern (which is possible now that Cam isn't in your party) does not stop him from showing up later... 5 - in the normal "Pick Lann or Wenduag" dialog Camellia is supposed to talk, but without her you are kicked out of the dialog, thus preventing the Mongrel's from showing up and opening the DC 91 door to the exit.

2023.06.04 09:06 jaehyunnie127 [MOD ANNOUNCEMENT] On July 1st, Reddit will kill the use of major 3rd party apps. This decision will majorly change this site as we know it. Here is what you should know about it:

Hello everyone,
Today the kpopthoughts mod team and I would like to talk to you guys about an important topic that’s going on with reddit at the moment. I am especially passionate about this topic as I pretty much only ever have used reddit through a (fantastic) third party app. Other mods on the team also exclusively access reddit on mobile through a third party app. I’m sure some of you guys as well use third party apps, and if so, you may have already heard about this. For those completely unfamiliar with this topic and why it is so important for this website, please read on.

Okay, what’s going on?

API Pricing
Recently, Reddit announced drastic changes to their API pricing. In short: APIs are what third party apps, including bots, rely on to work. What Reddit is doing, is driving up the prices of their API usages to insane heights, making it impossible for the devs of third party apps to pay for them and thus are unable to keep their app running. For example, Apollo would be forced to pay upwards of $20 million USD/year.
Please read some of the developers own statements, they can explain their own situation much better:
Safety tools for subreddits
This is bad! Why is this bad? Because the official app and website lack a lot of functionalities for moderators. A lot of mods, if not the majority, rely on third party tools and bots to moderate subreddits. For example, there are bots that are specifically created to seek out and remove (NSFW) spam or help discover illegal pornographic content.
When these tools cease to exist, our subreddits will be vulnerable when it comes to anti-spam and user safety. One of the most important mod tools around, toolbox, are also unsure of their future.

Will this affect me and how?

If you are currently browsing Reddit on a third party app, you will no longer be able to do so if this change goes through on July 1st. If you are already using the official app, this will probably not personally affect you.
However, we are most likely going to see some important subreddits close if their moderators are no longer able to keep their users safe from harmful (NSFW) content, spam or if they simply don’t want to use Reddit without their favorite app. Every subreddit is plagued with (NSFW) spam and trolls, even ours. Reddit is not equipping moderators with tools to combat these on their own.
Old Reddit and user safety
Another topic entirely, but also important, is that the general consensus seems to be that these changes are being enforced so reddit users are forced to use the official app. There they are able to track your data, show you unlimited ads and basically do whatever they want - nothing of it with your best interests at heart, which is what third party apps have always been doing. Furthermore, this suggests the removal/discontinuation of old.reddit.com.

Can we stop this?

Hundreds of communities are being vocal about how much they disagree with this change, asking them to reconsider and recognize the important role third party apps play in keeping this website alive. I encourage you to read this open letter which further elaborates on the topic:
ModCoord: An open letter on the state of affairs regarding the API pricing and third party apps and how that will impact moderators and communities.
Additionally, there are talks of a 24h Reddit blackout in other subreddits, which have worked in the past. They are however highly disruptive to the community but if Reddit doesn't back down on this, we will be participating in this as well.
So please, be vocal about this. Comment on any of the popular posts linked in the post. Make some noise, as they say. Make them listen.

2023.06.04 09:02 beaninspirer Real Love vs. Romantic Love: 10 Love Quotes and Thoughts

“In real love you want the other person’s good. In romantic love you want the other person.” — Margaret Anderson
Real love vs. romantic love has always been a talk of the town. In fact, if there’s any term that has been misinterpreted the most throughout centuries, it’s got to be “love”.
Different poets and philosophers have described love differently — in the form of love quotes or love thoughts, but love manages to transcend all barriers. Not a single line written till now to pen down the true essence of love has been able to do justice with it.
What’s it about love that makes it so powerful, mind-blowing, and mystifying at the same time?
In the same pursuit of trying to understand the nitty-gritty of love, we have compiled this list of ‘10 Love Quotes’ plus ‘love thoughts’ that we hope will help alleviate your curiosity surrounding love.
“Forgiveness is the final form of love.” — Reinhold Niebuhr
1. To Be Loved is Good, To Love Someone is Courageous
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” — Lao Tzu
If someone is/has been in love with you, you already know about it. Likewise, if you are/have been in love with someone, you already know what’s been said above.
Naturally, being loved makes you feel mentally and emotionally invincible. But it takes a lot of courage to love someone because there’s always a fear of rejection or a breakup.
2. Human Minds aren’t Strong Enough to Replicate True Love
“This fire that we call Loving is too strong for human minds. But just right for human souls.” — Aberjhani
Everyone claims to be in love, but only a chosen few get to witness its true power. The strength of love is too much for a mere mortal to reckon with.
So, whatever little or more is in your fate, try your best to be worthy of it. A person engulfed by true love is never the same again, so be careful when giving your heart to another soul.
3. A Desire and Pursuit of it is Love – A Blend of Real Love and Romantic Love
“Love is simply the name for the desire and pursuit of the whole.” — Plato
A desire for something and your pursuit to gain it is love. So, be careful with what you desire! Unsatisfied desires are demons that never leave your head.
Let your mind and heart desire only for things that your body can fetch for you.
4. You can’t Un-love, Just Keep on Loving Limitlessly
“There is no remedy for love but to love more.” — Henry David Thoreau
If you have been hurt by someone you love, your decision to not love anymore is not the solution. The solution is to get back at it, love again, love better!
Not everyone is worthy of your love, the person worthy of it will ultimately come into your life, make sure to keep the door wide open.
5. Be Kind to Yourself
“Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love.” — Brené Brown
Having loving self-talk does not preclude you from accepting responsibility and maintaining accountability. It’s about remaining loving to yourself in both good and bad times.
Compassionate self-talk can be viewed as a form of self-love. It alters your relationship with yourself. It can become a means of looking after yourself.
6. Love is an Art; You Get to Meet Yourself When In Love

2023.06.04 09:01 helloiamjoshua Escape the Night Season 1 is the best season in the franchise.

In my opinion, the first season is the best season of Escape the Night. Everything about it was amazing, from the vibes, the cast, and the challenges. They were able to capture well the essence of that era. The setting and the challenges and editing were reminiscent of that year and it truly felt like we went back in time.
One thing that Season 1 had that the others failed to do so was the eeriness and horror that the franchise wants to achieve. The first season was dark and creepy which can be felt and seen through the eerie challenges and scary monsters. The other seasons felt less scary and horror-like probably because it became too colorful and bright for a horror series. The jumpscares in season 1 were also pretty good and watching the death challenges always made you feel like sitting on the edge.
Another reason as to why it is the best season is because it was the first. It set the standard to how the other seasons play out. It has an advantage because it was the first season, which means that the viewers have zero idea what it is about and what’s going to happen, it was truly full of twist and turns. Since the other seasons follow the format, nothing about it is really shocking or surprising, compared to season 1. Each episode had a different twist in the challenge, I remember being just shocked each episode on who dies and how. Justine’s death is still the best death scene in the franchise. It just felt so authentic and real, and the aftermath was great as well.
The cast were also pretty good at its time. Everyone in it was pretty relevant and were also friends with Joey. The only one I didn’t know then was Matt. The drama also didn’t seem forced and most of the comedic moments were timed correctly. The personalities were also distinct and everyone had their own thing going on about them.
The only thing I didn’t like about it was the twist at the end. It would’ve been more gagging if it was one of them (I remember putting my finger on Eva). That would’ve made it feel more like a murder mystery.
If I were to rank the seasons, it would be:
  1. Season 1
  2. Season 3 (very great as well)
  3. Season 4
  4. Season 2 (can be interchanged with number 3)
Anyways, if Season 5 happens, I hope they do well and bring back the creepy horror vibes from the first season.

2023.06.04 08:54 UsualDrop How to split a long room?

We have a very long living room and about 1/3 of it is used for my wife’s office. I really want to paint the living room area a midtone purple-grey, but I think it’s too dark for the office.
How can I split the walls into sections? Furniture, even tall bookshelves, don’t go up to the ceiling.

2023.06.04 08:49 RareGeometry Anyone else feel like you just don't know how to have fun/be fun?

I was just brushing my teeth before bed with the window open and overheard my next door and 2 doors down neighbors laughing and chatting on one of their decks.
Though I am friendly with both of them, and they both talk about having me over for these summer night deck visits all the time, they virtually never invite me. I've been invited maybe 4 times total in the 3 years living here.
Of course I understand they have a few more years of friendship but the one considers me her closest friend in our town. She shares her hard times and heavier stuff with me, but we don't really... do fun stuff
This has been a theme all my life. I've never been the fun one and I'm never invited to things because "I didn't think you'd want to come" "I didn't think it was your thing" "I didn't think your mom would let you" etc. .
My nmom was a bit more lax when I was really young, while my dad was alive. But once he passed (I was nearly 9) she tightened up a lot and nobody was around to temper her so she came down full force on me.
Besides the lack of social and relationship skills learning from an nparent, I feel like fun, being boisterous, being unfiltered, letting loose, whatever other phrases you could add, was sucked and taught out of me and my life experience.
I always had to look, act, talk a certain way because my nmom always told me it reflected on her. I was kept under a tight lead of "immediate obedience." I was absolutely allowed to roam nature and do quiet, solo things but not encouraged to, well, have fun and be myself and cut loose. Everything had to be calculated for some level if my nmom's reactivity or judgement. I was taught a lot about how to present this or that way and how certain behaviors were unruly and unbecoming. Also very strict about clothing.
I never went through a drinking, partying, experimental phase because I wasn't allowed. Even when I lived away from home my nmom found ways to torment me and keep a tight rein. It wasn't until I started my career and lived on my own I had some more freedoms but by then...I didn't know how and I was even sort of afraid of some of it? Not that I needed to go on some kind of spiraling bender walk of shame kind of event. But like, I just have this personality now where people continue to not invite me for hangouts and concerts and socializing, "fun" sorts of events. I get invited to go plant shopping, event attire shopping, helping plan things, occasionally thrifting but usually looking for a specific need like interview attire or mouse furnishings or corningware or something lol. Or I get asked to help with things, like not I'm having a barbecue wanna come over? More like, I'm having a barbecue and I need help with xyz can you do that?
I very much get treated like peoples moms.
I hear stories from wild adventures on camping trips and stuff from my husband and his mom/family and I absolutely cannot relate. Nada. We never drank on camping trips, it was never a group event, it was just my mom and I or my dad, mom, and I, sometimes my much older brother, and we did super quiet stuff and left no trace. My parents were/are supper hippie, survivalist, nature folks like that. Which of course has its place.
I just lie here in the dark in bed and hear the laughter and sharing stories and drinks and snacks and happiness and feel like I don't know how to have and be that and hope so much that my kids are more exciting but fear that my quiet background involvement will make them like me. Tomorrow or another day, while talking over the fence or out at the garden centre together, I'll hear about that time the neighbors got tipsy and did this or that or shared some story or experience and...I'm always just peripheral.

2023.06.04 08:46 Teban54 [Analysis] Tyranitar (and its Mega) with Brutal Swing in raids: The Dark-type Monster Returns

[Analysis] Tyranitar (and its Mega) with Brutal Swing in raids: The Dark-type Monster Returns

TL;DR - Hunt down those Cliffs before Shadow Larvitar goes away!

Shadow (Dark) Tyranitar redefines dark/ghost attackers now. It's at Mega Gengar tier, MILES ahead of all other non-megas, is one of the most useful shadows in raids among all types, and is very future proof.
  • L30 Shadow Tyranitar = L50 Hydreigon and all others
Regular (Dark) Tyranitar = Hydreigon. Mayyybe 1% below Hydreigon, and it's mostly typing-dependent.
Once released, Mega Tyranitar will become #1 Dark and #1 Rock, both in solo performance (though Mega Diancie will be better), and especially in group damage contribution due to its bulk.
Dark or Rock? Save 1 non-shadow of each for the mega, then: Shadow Dark > Shadow Rock > Regular Dark = Hydreigon > Regular Rock.
  • Ideally, both Shadow Dark and Shadow Rock are worth making teams of (rock team mixed with Rampardos), but prioritize Dark.
  • Shadow Rock is also #1 non-mega rock, but just barely, and will eventually be outclassed. Keep at least 1 for Rockets though.
Keep reading for:
  • Why each Tyranitar can't double duty
  • Dark/Ghost and Rock-type attacker comparison charts and Mega comparison charts
    • Brief mention of Mega Sableye (it disappoints)
  • Is Shadow Tyranitar (dark) the most useful raid attacker of all types? (Strength & Utility metric)
  • Pairwise comparisons involving shadow and regular Tyranitar
  • Future considerations
    • Shadow Darkrai with Dark Void is the only one that can truly outclass Shadow Tyranitar
  • More detailed recommendations on "Dark vs. Rock"
  • List of my previous analyses - now in Google Sheets!


At the start of the Season of Hidden Gems, we got our seasonal Go Battle League move update. As part of the update, Tyranitar can now learn Brutal Swing as part of its regular, non-legacy moveset, using a Regular Charged TM.
Additionally, the season website has (accidentally?) revealed that Mega Tyranitar will make its debut in Mega Raids from July 25 to August 4 (full schedule on Go Hub). A detailed look at the website's source code also shows Mega Sableye release from June 29 to July 6.
When I previously wrote about Tyranitar for its Community Day Classic in January, my tone was rather bleak, as regular Tyranitar had already fallen way below the tier lists of both rock and dark attackers. Quoted from the TL;DR back then:
Unless you missed December CD, relax - 2023 is not 2018. Regular Tyranitar is not a must-have anymore.
But that was when Tyranitar's dark moveset was Bite/Crunch, both being mediocre to bad moves. Now, Tyranitar can instead use Brutal Swing, a borderline overpowered (OP) move designed for Hydreigon to shine on its Community Day a year ago.
Does Brutal Swing help both regular and Shadow Tyranitar restore its 2017 glory? How will Mega Tyranitar (and Mega Sableye) perform in raids once they arrive? I'll address these questions with the following parts:
  1. Tyranitar (Regular, Shadow, Mega) and Mega Sableye as Dark/Ghost-type raid attackers
  2. Mega Tyranitar as a Rock-type raid attacker
  3. Future Considerations - What else can catch up with Shadow Tyranitar?
  4. Verdict: Dark or Rock?
If you're on desktop and want to jump to a particular part, search "Part X".
You can now follow me (@teban54) on Twitter!
Since this post is too long, Reddit may not allow edits after publishing. Should there be minor changes or bug fixes, I will mention them in a comment.

A legacy fast move - why each Tyranitar can't double duty

A minor note that should be obvious for veteran players, but still useful to point out.
To function as a rock type, Tyranitar needs Smack Down, a legacy fast move. This means you can't build a single Tyranitar and TM back and forth between dark and rock movesets. An individual Tyranitar is locked in as either a rock type or a dark type, not both.
This may force you to build twice as many Tyranitars as you normally would - a dark team and a rock team - if necessary.
Do note that you will be able to get Smack Down by evolution during December 2023 Community Day, without needing an Elite Fast TM.
And if you really want to, you can TM a Smack Down Tyranitar to Bite. It's a one-way street: Rock -> Dark is a yes, Dark -> Rock is a no (or at least expensive).

Part 1: Tyranitar as a Dark Attacker

[Part 1 TL;DR] Shadow Tyranitar redefines the Dark/Ghost meta, being at Mega Gengar tier, and L30 Shadow Ttar = L50 other options. It's now a Tier 1 shadow in utility across all types.
Regular Tyranitar is virtually the same as Hydreigon, mayyybe 1% worse and typing-dependent.
Mega Tyranitar is also at Mega Gengar tier, and will likely be the choice for a Dark/Ghost Mega from now on.
Dark and Ghost attackers ranked by their average in-raid performance, using ASE and ASTTW.
Charts of ASE with and without dodging are here.

Brutal Swing is a HUGE upgrade on Tyranitar: an 18% improvement, almost the same as shadow vs. non-shadow, and enough to cross several tiers.
  • Put it another way: Non-shadow Tyranitar with Brutal Swing is as good as Shadow Tyranitar without Brutal Swing.
As a result, Shadow Tyranitar REDEFINES non-mega Dark/Ghost attackers now.
  • Shadow Tyranitar's power gets to Mega Gengar tier, and most people should know how OP Mega Gengar is. (Detailed comparisons later...)
  • Everything that we used to call "a top dark/ghost type" gets left WAY behind. This includes: Hydreigon, Shadow Weavile, Shadow Tyranitar without Brutal Swing, Shadow Mewtwo (Shadow Ball), Giratina Origin, Darkrai. Now, Shadow Tyranitar at Level 30 = all these options at Level 50, Hydreigon included.
  • For the DPS lovers, here's the ER and DPS table. Indeed, even in raw DPS, Shadow Tyranitar is now the highest among all non-mega dark/ghost types - and it still has good bulk!
Regular Tyranitar is now virtually the same as Hydreigon, mayyybe 1% below. Together, they're the top non-shadow non-mega options.
  • This also means it's better than Giratina-O and Darkrai.
  • So, non-shadow Tyranitar isn't meta-defining per se, since Hydreigon already existed. If you had a Hydreigon army from its CD, regular Ttar doesn't do anything extra, aside from typing differences. Put your resources into the shadows.
  • (Detailed comparisons later...)
When Mega Tyranitar arrives, it will sit in the same tier as Mega Gengar and Shadow Tyranitar in individual performance. In other words, top of the type.
  • Mega > Shadow, but DO NOT PURIFY.
  • (Detailed comparisons and mega charts later...)

Shadow Tyranitar (Dark)'s Incredible Utility

[Section TL;DR] Due to the high utility of dark/ghost types (many bosses to use them against), Shadow Tyranitar is now one of the most useful raid attackers across all types. This will remain the case even after most future shadows (including shadow legendaries) are released. A solid Tier 1 shadow for raiding.
I've always treated dark and ghost types as "one" of the most useful types for raiding, if not the most useful. Their main roles are anti-psychic and anti-ghost, and it happens that there's a crazy number of psychic-type T5 bosses (perhaps the most common type among legendaries).
Back when I wrote the Shadow Mewtwo analysis in January, I defined a "Strength and Utility" (S&U) metric, which combines individual powers of raid attackers with the number of raids they can be used against. For example, Shadow Mewtwo as a psychic type doesn't do too well, because psychic attackers are rarely needed.
With all expected future Gen 1-5 shadows at that time - which included Shadow Hydreigon, but not Shadow Tyranitar with Brutal Swing - the metric looked like this:
Strength and Utility (S&U) metric with Gen 1-5 shadows in January 2023. \"(Shadow) Hydreigon\" on this chart is a close approximation for Shadow Tyranitar with Brutal Swing.
Treat the "Hyderigon" on the chart as Shadow Tyranitar.
That means... Shadow Tyranitar (dark) is one of the most useful raid attackers - #1 by the S&U metric. Both right now, and in a future where all Gen 1-5 shadows are released.
The incredibly powerful (future) shadow legendaries that you're thinking of: Shadow Mewtwo, Groudon, Rayquaza, Terrakion... In terms of utility, they all pale in comparison to Shadow Tyranitar.
  • One caveat is that this chart only considers utility of a single type. Shadow Mamoswine's utility in either of its types may be lower than Shadow Tyranitar, but its combined utility will likely be higher, at least today.
So yes, I would absolutely rank Shadow Tyranitar (dark) as a Tier 1 shadow in raids today. (And my definition of Tier 1 was very restrictive. I ranked Shadow Mewtwo as Tier 2... And people hated it.)

Comparisons: Mega & Shadow Tyranitar, and Mega Gengar

[Section TL;DR] Mega > Shadow Ttar. Mega Gengar technically "wins" more often than both (and still has the highest DPS/TTW), but it's very unreliable, and when it fails, it fails very badly.
Mega Tyranitar vs. Shadow Tyranitar vs. Mega Gengar (L40 best friends)
Mega Tyranitar vs. Mega Gengar: (Individual power, without damage boosting)
  • Mega Gengar may be better than Mega Tyranitar more often, but it's WAY less consistent.
  • This is due to Mega Gengar's fragility and weakness to psychic moves. On the other hand, Mega Tyranitar doesn't fear much, except fighting moves.
  • As a result, Mega Tyranitar gets better average Estimator. (Remember the bar chart above doesn't show how much better each option is.) In TTW, Mega Gengar still pulls ahead.
The other two pairs are comparing apples (megas) to oranges (non-megas), but:
Shadow Tyranitar vs. Mega Gengar:
  • Same discussion as above, except that Shadow Ttar fares worse than its Mega counterpart.
  • Their average Estimators are similar at L40-50, whereas Mega Gengar is ahead in TTW.
Mega Tyranitar vs. Shadow Tyranitar:
  • In theory, Shadow Ttar actually out-DPSes Mega Ttar by 2.1%. But Mega Ttar has 54% more TDO, more than enough to make up for it.
  • Indeed, in practice, Shadow's tiny DPS advantage almost evaporates. Mega is better.

Comparisons: Regular Tyranitar vs. Hydreigon and others

[Section TL;DR] Hydreigon is technically still better, but only by 1%, and basically typing-dependent. Tyranitar outclasses most other options, arguably except Shadow Weavile.
Tyranitar vs. other similar Dark and Ghost attackers (L40 best friends)
Everything listed here used to be the "golden standard" for dark and ghost. Now, even non-shadow Tyranitar at least puts up a fight, if not straight up outclasses them. (Recall that Shadow Tyranitar is above all of them by 18%.)
Starting with Tyranitar vs. Hydreigon, as it's the most relevant pair.
  • Hydreigon has 256 base attack to Tyranitar's 251, but Ttar has more defense and HP. Now that they have the same moveset, Hydreigon naturally has slightly higher DPS, while Tyranitar has higher TDO.
  • From the bar chart... Yes, Hydreigon is technically still better.
  • However, it's only better by a tiny amount - usually on the scale of 1%.
    • Here's a plot of the extent to which each one is better than the other. In 80% of cases, the difference is really small.
  • In practice, what's preferred essentially boils down to typing differences.
Tyranitar vs. Shadow Weavile is also interesting: Shadow Weavile is a classic glass cannon, stronger in the best case, but very risky. But if you're comparing to a shadow... Why not use Shadow Tyranitar instead?
Tyranitar basically outclasses the rest (Darkrai, Giratina-O, Chandelure, Gholdengo), aside from typing disadvantages, such as Focus Blast Mewtwo.

Dark and Ghost-type Mega Comparisons

[Section TL;DR] Mega Tyranitar > all dark megas, and > Mega Gengar unless everyone else uses ghost. Mega Sableye disappoints.
Comparison of dark- and ghost-type megas, in terms of damage up to a fixed time frame (relative to the no-mega baseline). Big type icons denote attackers that other raiders use.
As usual, this chart looks at the question "which mega contributes the most damage to the group", accounting for both its own damage output and its mega boost to other raiders. Note that Primal Kyogre/Groudon in the 6th slot may still be the best way to contribute damage (method explained in my Mega Pinsir analysis).
If you don't want to "use" a Primal...
Yes, Mega Tyranitar will outclass all Dark-type Megas on all fronts - in both power (Houndoom) and group boosting (Gyarados).
Comparing to Mega Gengar:
  • If you coordinate so that everyone else uses ghost types, then Mega Gengar is better.
  • However, if you're not sure what others will bring, Mega Tyranitar is better, often by far.
Brief mention on Mega Sableye. In theory, being able to boost both Dark and Ghost damage - regardless of what others choose - sounds very enticing. Sadly, Mega Sableye's laughable power and mediocre bulk means it can't execute that well. It's worse than Mega Tyranitar in almost all situations, including when others use ghost types.

Part 2: Mega Tyranitar as a Rock Attacker

[Part 2 TL;DR] Mega Tyranitar's individual power is barely above Mega Aerodactyl (current best rock type), and slightly below Mega Diancie. However, its superior bulk makes it the best mega for contributing damage in group raids.
Rock attackers ranked by their average in-raid performance, using ASE and ASTTW.
Charts of ASE with and without dodging are here.

In individual power, Mega Tyranitar is the best rock attacker, being better than Mega Aerodactyl... But just barely.
  • It will also have worse solo performance than Mega Diancie, when/if it's released at Go Fest. (Not shown on the chart)
  • However, Mega Tyranitar has a massive bulk advantage over Mega Diancie and Aerodactyl, making it the Rock-type Mega of choice due to boosting other players. (More on this in a moment...)
Brief note on Shadow and regular Tyranitar:
  • Shadow Tyranitar is the best non-mega rock type in Estimator, but only barely ahead of Rampardos. In large lobbies (TTW), Rampardos actually catches up.
    • Shadow/Mega Tyranitar are tanks, while Rampardos and Mega Aerodactyl are glass cannons. The latter have higher DPS respectively, but not enough bulk to fully shine when relobbying is a concern.
    • A mixed lobby of, say, 3 Rampardos followed by 3 Shadow Tyranitar may perform even better.
  • Non-shadow Tyranitar is worse than several options, and #6 non-shadow non-mega.
More discussions on Shadow and regular Tyranitar with Smack Down can be found in my CD Classic analysis.

Rock-type Mega Comparisons

Comparison of rock-type megas, in terms of damage up to a fixed time frame (relative to the no-mega baseline).
Very simple chart.
Mega Tyranitar is the best rock-type mega to use in group raids for damage contribution, due to its superior bulk providing the 30% mega boost for longer. Even though it's weaker than Mega Diancie by itself.

Part 3: Future Considerations - What else can catch up with Shadow Tyranitar?

[Part 3 TL;DR] Shadow Tyranitar is very future-proof as a dark type. Future counters such as Shadow Hydreigon may become similar, but nothing can truly outclass it until we get Shadow Darkrai with Dark Void. However, as a rock type, it will eventually be outclassed by Shadow Rhyperior, Shadow Rampardos, etc.

Future Dark-type Attackers

Future and speculative dark and ghost attackers ranked by ASE and ASTTW.
Charts of ASE with and without dodging are here.

If we're only talking about what can outclass Shadow Tyranitar? The answer is: Only Shadow Darkrai, once it gets Dark Void.
Several things can become equivalent to Shadow Tyranitar or barely below, however:
  • Shadow Hydreigon. Just like their non-shadow forms, their shadows will likely tie each other.
  • Darkrai (non-shadow) with Dark Void, if the move is sufficiently OP.
  • Shadow Darkrai with its current moves. If Niantic never gives us Dark Void.
  • Calyrex Shadow Rider, if it gets a Game Master moveset change and receives Hex.
  • Hoopa Unbound with its signature move.
Blacephalon (with the best possible moves) and Shadow Chandelure will lie between non-shadow and Shadow Tyranitars, but probably on the lower side.
In short... Shadow Tyranitar is pretty darn future-proof as a dark type.

Future Rock Attackers

On the other hand, as a rock type, Shadow Tyranitar is waiting to be outclassed by future shadows. In particular, Shadow Rhyperior and Shadow Rampardos. (And to a less extent, Shadow Terrakion and Shadow Gigalith.)
I covered them in my CD Classic analysis in January, including possibilities of Tyranitar receiving better rock-type moves. You can jump to the charts here.

Part 4: Verdict - Dark or Rock?

So here's a punchline:
Do you want a #1 dark that's miles ahead of other dark types, or a #1 rock that's only barely ahead of other rock types?
A #1 dark that's very unlikely to be outclassed, or a #1 rock that will be outclassed sooner or later?
Based on this, here's a more detailed set of advice:
Form Dark Rock
Mega 1 non-shadow Dark for Mega 1 non-shadow Rock for Mega
Shadow As many Shadow Dark as possible Ideally also a team of Shadow Rock and Rampardos, at least 1, but lower priority than dark
Non-shadow Round out your Hydreigon team, if you lack Shadow Ttars Just the 1 Mega, unless you lack all the better options
Or, as a one-liner: After 1 Mega for each, Shadow Dark > Shadow Rock > Regular Dark = Hydreigon > Regular Rock. If you need to choose between limited Shadow Larvitars with good IVs, prioritize dark.
  • DO NOT PURIFY! Use another non-shadow for the mega.
  • I recommend having at least 1 Shadow Rock for Rocket battles. Smack Down Ttar is awesome especially against flying grunts.
Factors that went into the recommendations above, which also serves as a recap of the whole article:
  1. Megas for both types are a must.
  2. Both Shadow Dark and Shadow Rock are currently #1 non-mega of their types. Both are worth building teams of (though the rock team may be mixed with Rampardos).
  3. Shadow Dark fares significantly better among its own type than Shadow Rock, is stronger in raw power, and is also more future proof.
  4. I'd try my best not to TM a Shadow Rock to Dark - find a better one from Cliff. But if you really have to, Rampardos and Rhyperior get you covered. Shadow SD Tyranitar is ahead of Rhyperior, but they fulfill the same role: a rock-type tank.
  5. Shadow Ttar > Regular Ttar, of course. So ideally, any resources should preferably go into the shadows before the non-shadows (if at all).
  6. Regular Dark = Hydreigon, or 1% below. Anyone that has already built a Hydreigon team doesn't need another regular Tyranitar. If you haven't, regular Ttar is awesome, but why not build a Shadow Ttar instead?
  7. Regualr Rock < Rampardos, Rhyperior, Terrakion, Tyrantrum, Gigalith. TM'ing Regular Rock to Dark wouldn't be too crazy.
Of course, these are general guidelines, and may differ based on your availability of attackers, preferences (e.g. Unique 6, hate shadows), etc.
Ultimately, do what makes you happy.

What's next?

I'll start working on Breaking Swipe Haxorus analysis ASAP. Preliminary thoughts can be found here.
Beyond that, I will likely be scaling down the frequency and depth of my analyses soon. More details and explanations to come. (This article is already less in-depth than it could have been.)

2023.06.04 08:44 Main_Star3808 Why Congress is Anti-Hindu and Why We need pro-Hindu leadership with pro-Hindu ideology at every level of government.

Brothers and sisters,
I grew up in the Indian diaspora as an NRI who didn't know too much about Indian politics or India's internal issues to begin with. I was never religious, I always thought of myself as a cultural Hindu. I thought that Hindus were mostly safe in India being a Hindu majority country with Hindu cultural values.
I thought that the Congress Party was a "normal" party. But when I read about the 2011 draft of the Communal Violence Bill and learned about the 2009 Right to Education Act's inapplicability to Christian minority schools (Pramati judgement), I quickly came to the conclusion that the Congress Party and Sonia/Rahul Gandhi are part of a Vatican/Catholic Church/Christian/Western conspiracy against Hindus and Hinduism. When Sonia Gandhi married Rajiv Gandhi, the Catholic Church saw this moment as its "Constantine" moment in India, when it could try to achieve its nefarious goals by controlling the Indian National Congress. Ever wonder why INC is aligned with Christian missionaries? Who did Rahul Gandhi meet first in Bharat Jodo Yatra? A hate mongering Catholic priest named George Ponniah who spewed vile hatred against the Hindus of Tamil Nadu.
See the following article:
In particular, I have a deep hatred of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi who are Catholic Christians. They are evil, completely anti-Hindu, and the brainchild of laws like Right to Education Act and the 2011 draft of the Communal Violence Bill. It is painfully obvious that they are Vatican agents who have a deep hatred of Hindus and of Indians. That is why I pray for Sonia and Rahul's downfall each and every day.
Communal Violence Bill - Do all Hindus know that the Congress Party tried to pass a Communal Violence Bill in 2011 that assumed that all Hindus were guilty as default, just by being born as Hindus, while Christians & Muslims could freely attack Hindus without any consequences? Did you know that this plan involved creating a so-called "National Communal Commission" with a "minority" (read Muslim/Christian) majority that could somehow control the Indian armed forces and the police forces to bully and terrorize Hindus? Luckily the BJP under Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley, along with Narendra Modi, blocked Congress from passing this anti-Hindu law. BJP and RSS successfully killed this law and then won 2014 in a landslide. Luckily since 2013, the genocidal anti-Hindu Congress Party has been destroyed in the Rajya Sabha and so can never do something like this Communal Violence Bill (CVB) again. Also, India has massive internet penetration now in 2023 compared to back then in 2013 when Congress tried to pass CVB, so if the Italian scum who rule the Congress Party try to pass CVB again they will be exposed and there will be bloody retaliation against them. Variants of the Communal Violence Bill appear in different Congress manifestos under cleverly disguised names and descriptions, but the anti-Hindu intent of the Italian scum is the same. Harsh Mander, who wrote this evil anti-Hindu law with genocidal intent, is still running free instead of being hunted down and punished.
Right to Education Act - We all know how this law discriminates against Hindus running schools while leaving Christian "minority" institutions completely exempt from its horrible requirements like 25% quota, teacher salaries (that are extremely high for no reason), infra requirements like playgrounds etc. Hindus need linguistic minority status or Jain minority status just to escape RTE on their school. This law is so evil and no other country in the world has laws that discriminate against their majority community in education. How dare a Catholic padre who is a filthy pedophile has more rights than a Hindu to run a school without government interference? This was the brainchild of Vatican agent and Catholic terrorist Sonia. People like @ realitycheckind on Twitter have been screaming about RTE since 2014.
Nowadays, wealthy Hindus get around RTE by running linguistic minority or Jain minority schools. In Maharashtra, for instance, the vast majority of Hindu schools owned by politicians or big businessmen switched to linguistic minority status (Hindi/Gujarati/Kannada/Sindhi/Marwadi/Punjabi/Malayalam) or to Jain/Buddhist minority status. For instance, you'll notice that Ambani school in Mumbai is a Gujarati linguistic minority institution, or that Lodha school school in Mumbai is Jain minority, or that Birla school is Marwadi linguistic minority, or that Walsingham school owned by the Mittal family is Hindi linguistic minority. If the top 1% can kill RTE in their schools, why should a mom-pop Hindu family running a school be forced to take in RTE quota freeloaders?
Given how hard it is to politically undo reservation-type laws, the solution to kill the Right to Education Act across the whole of India is to make all Hindu schools across India into Jain minority institutions on paper, throwing out the 25% RTE quota freeloaders who should be kicked out of non-minority private schools. Simply put, nobody has the right to "free" private school education, just because you are part of a particular caste (SC/ST) or community. RTE is also a tool to infiltrate Muslim kids into Hindu owned private schools to achieve the so-called "secularism" that leftists want. If you run a Jain minority institute for instance, you can avoid such "secularism" and "diversity" in your student body and can screen out certain types of students.
This law was so evil and was the reason why so many communities like the Lingayats etc want minority status. Because no other country in the world has laws that make it easier for "minorities" to run schools compared to the majority community. The Jains wanted minority status and got it from the Congress Party in 2014, solely to protect their private schools and colleges from the evil reservation laws that we have and the 93rd constitutional amendment. Nowadays, all wealthy Hindus/corporate India are running Jain minority schools and colleges in the private sector free from any type of caste based reservation. In the future, you will see a movement run by Upper Caste Hindus against reservation in private educational institutions. Pratap Bhanu Mehta (who is really a Jain) knew of the 93rd amendment back in 2005 and successfully got the Jain minority status from the Congress Party. I've seen really top-notch private schools that have linguistic/Jain minority status and are safe from RTE.
Despite this law there, RSS appointees like Priyank Kanoongoo (head of NCPCR - national child rights commission) continue to try to "enforce" RTE on hapless Hindu owned non-minority schools. I have no idea why RSS doesn't have a problem with RTE. If Mr. Modi himself wanted to end RTE, I could guarantee you that this whole "program" would have been shut down on Day 1.
Why should a Hindu school owner be forced to admit 25% "free" education, while a similar school run by a Christian does not have to do so? Is this secularism? If it isn't secular, why aren't Hindus coming on the roads, demanding RTE to be imposed on the schools that those Catholic rapists run?
The True Religion of All Top Congress Leaders (news-flash, Congress is Hindu hating group of individuals plotting against Hindu civilization). While Owaisi is a radical Islamist, people like Rahul Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi are the biggest threat to Hindus on our planet today.
Rahul Gandhi - Catholic Christian
Catholic Christian like his mother. Pretends to be a Hindu but hates Hindu culture and Hindu traditions. Is more of an Italian Catholic Christian who is more comfortable talking to Catholic padres in a Church. Is most at home in Kerala with a large Catholic population. Uses Muslims as a vote bank but is really aligned with radical Christian forces that are enemies of Hindu civilization. Ran away from a Hindu majority parliamentary constituency to go to a "secular" Wayanad where Abrahamics (Muslims + Christians) are over 60% of the population, knowing that Hindus would punish him electorally.
Sonia Gandhi - Italian Catholic Christian, whose real name is ANTONIO MAINO. How on Earth did the largest opposition party (Indian National Congress) get taken by an Italian Christian woman and a Vatican stooge?
Malikharjun Kharge - Buddhist Ambedkarite Dalit. Also has a hatred for Hindu Dharma, even when Hinduism and Buddhism are both Indian/Indic faiths in our civilization that are mutually compatible with each other. Hindus don't have any problem with Buddhism or Buddhists and even see Buddhism as an "improved" or "enlightened" version of Hinduism, yet the radical Ambedkarite ideology tries to instigate Scheduled Castes/Scheduled Tribes from other Hindu castes when all Hindus across our country are equal and together. Hindus don't have a problem with anybody embracing Buddhism.
Manmohan Singh - Sikh who was the first non-Hindu Prime Minister of India. Under Mr. Manmohan Singh's tenure, the Congress Party tried to pass the Communal Violence Bill (2011 draft) which distinguished between "minorities" and Hindus in criminal law but was luckily blocked by the BJP who killed it. Now Sonia Gandhi could have chosen a Hindu in her Congress Party as the Prime Minister when Congress won in 2004 and 2009. But she deliberately chose a non-Hindu to implement her radical Hindu-hating agenda. A titular figurehead whose daughter was found working for George Soros and who has a Hindu hating agenda as well.
Others - Ambika Soni who is a Christian, Kapil Sibal who also seems to be a Christian and so forth.
It is painfully clear that Congress Party has an agenda against Hindus and Hinduism and that their national leaders are anti-Hindu. So, why does Congress still win in some state elections?
Himachal Pradesh - was very close in 2022. Also, the Congress Party in Himachal Pradesh seems to be led by people who are Hindus. Never saw Hinduphobia YET in Himachal by Himachal Congress.
Chhattisgarh - Suspect that there is a massive conversion of tribals to Christianity, particularly in forests. Would be very dangerous if Baghel wins a 2nd term.
Karnataka - BJP government in Karnataka was corrupt and had poor leaders, with massive anti-incumbency with a 36% vs 43% vote differential. Also, the Kharge factor was there and many Hindu Dalits who would have voted for BJP voted for Cong just because of Kharge's Ambedkarite credentials. If the Congress unit in Karnataka supports Christian missionaries or Muslim terrorist organizations like PFI, it's up to the BJP government at the center to act.
Rajasthan - anti-incumbency in 2018. BJP should win Rajasthan very easily in 2023.
I don't think BJP is favored to win Chhattisgarh but I don't want Congress to ever have more than 3 states (Himachal, Karnataka, Chhatisgarh) by the end of 2023.
Congress, being a minoritarian party full of radical Muslim + Christian terrorists, should be reduced below 10% of seats in the Rajya Sabha (currently it's at 31/245 or 12.6%).
It is no surprise that Rahul Gandhi called for American/Western intervention in India's democracy to subvert the will of the Hindu majority (see the interview where this treacherous Rahul Gandhi asks American Nicholas Burns to "intervene" in India's internal affairs).
Hatred towards Hindus is Hatred towards India as a whole.
TLDR: Rahul Gandhi should come clean and disclose his real religion (Catholic Christianity). Why should Hindus let somebody who is completely hateful towards us continue to malign us in international forums, insult our people, our country, our government, and our civilizational nation? Go to the Vatican.
What is Congress's Idea of India and What Does it Really Mean? [Differential Laws on the basis of a person's religion, like Right to Education (RTE) and Communal Violence Bill (CVB). Apartheid laws that discriminate against Hindus]
When Rahul Gandhi or some Congress person like Shashi Tharoor (who also seems to be a crypto Catholic Christian) talks about the "Idea of India", they imagine an India where people are subjected to different laws on the basis of faith and where Hindus are 3rd class citizens compared to Abrahamics.
The "Idea of India" people want a world in which Christian schools are exempt from RTE, while Hindu schools suffer RTE; a world where Hindus suffer from a so-called Communal Violence Bill while minorities (Muslims + Christians) terrorize Hindus.
Does this "Idea of India" appeal to you? If you forcefully try to impose Christian or Muslim supremacy on a country with over a billion Hindus, we will retaliate and we will destroy you. In an era where people are connected via telecommunications/Internet and are becoming more literate and technologically savvy, if you do anything against Hindus, we will destroy you. Your fake "Gandhi" surname won't stop us from noticing that you are a Vatican terrorist along with your mother.

2023.06.04 08:42 steph_kaylor Eras Star Confetti ISO

Hi! I got my VIP box a while ago but there was only one yellow, one pink and a few red, everything else was the dark and light blues. No grey, white/cream, or black. I really want to use the confetti for an art project and I was wondering if anybody would be willing to part with some of theirs? (especially now that there's colored stars arriving in online merch, too).
Obviously, I'd Venmo the cost of the stamp and envelope to send the confetti.
I specifically need (but could work with even just one, so every album is repped in my art):
1-3 Yellow/Fearless
2-5 Purple/Speak Now
5-8 Black/Reputation
1-3 Pink/Lover
5-8 Grey/Folklore
5-8 Cream/Evermore
I'm also totally down to send anybody my excess 1989 and Midnights confetti, but I feel like that's what everyone already has tons of.
