2023.06.04 19:32 estheticianmom Sore throat, body aches, fatigue, but no fever- need strep test?

Not an emergency! Just a non medical parent wondering if I need to take my kid in for a strep test.
16 year old female started with sudden sore throat on Friday night, next day experienced same sore throat, headache, body aches, and fatigue- I think she slept at least 14 hours throughout the day. No fever, temperature was about 99 but she was achy and cold and just didn’t feel well. Today she feels a lot better with only a very mild sore throat, no aches, but doesn’t really have an appetite. She had her tonsils removed when she was little. She’s had strep in the past and it was typically way more severe than this, but the lack of other symptoms like congestion or cough is making me think it’s not a cold. Should I take her in for a strep test? Just concerned about if it is strep and it goes untreated, but not sure how likely it is to be strep given her symptoms. Thanks!

2023.06.04 19:32 RhubarbDangerous9378 Should I report my coworker?

I’ve been working at this nursing home for a few months now and have known my coworker since I started working there. She originally was a valet and watched a room of patients but was not allowed to do any CNA care. As of now, our nursing facility is removing the position of valet and is only keeping workers who plan on taking the CNA exam. So far, a lot of the people I’ve worked with have left since they only wanted to work as a valet, but this specific coworker of mine is staying and is planning to take the exam.
I don’t mind having extra help around the floor, but I, along with a few other coworkers of mine, have been upset and frustrated at how extremely lazy she is. There are moments where she suddenly leaves out of nowhere when I’ve asked her to help me with a patient that requires two people. She also goes to the break room for long periods of time on her phone and just talking to friends and roaming on social media.
From what I know she works the afternoon and usually the night shift. I worked overtime late at night and couldn’t find her for hours on end while all the other CNAs were taking care of their residents and answering call lights. I go to our nursing home’s library where both the doors are closed and find her completely asleep, sleeping completely on her back looking very comfortable, on the couch, while everyone else was working.
I don’t know if I should report her but clearly she is not a team player or actually does her job properly. If anything, I think she’s a danger to this nursing facility since she abruptly leaves patients and is ultimately very lazy. Should I report her to the DON?

2023.06.04 19:32 Soulrayze Found a lump

About a month ago I (37 f) found a ~3cm lump on the bottom of my right breast in the area right before the underside of my breast tissue meets up with my chest wall. It’s firm, irregular shaped, and feels like a piece of knotted rope. I’d doesn’t hurt about 95% of the time, but every once in a while I’ll get like an electric shock type pain in my breast. It was also a bit more tender than usual right before my period. It’s hard for me to tell if it’s movable. I feel like it moves with my breast tissue but not separate from it, if that makes sense?
I thought maybe it could be hormonal and related to my menstrual cycle so I left it alone for a full cycle to see if it would change. Nothing changed about it so I went to the doctor and had a breast exam. Doctor said he wanted to send me for an ultrasound and mammogram at the hospital. That happens in 4 days.
A bit about me: - I have a 3rd degree maternal relative with breast cancer. - 2 second degree relatives that had ovarian cancer and pancreatic cancer. - I have 4 children, none of whom were breast fed. - No history of any other lumps or other breast issues.
I know the chances of a lump being benign are higher than malignant, but I haven’t had the best luck with my health in the past - I was diagnosed with a rare cystic kidney disease, and have had a cholecystectomy, and an appendectomy all within the last 5 years, and more kidney stones than I can count. My experiences with doctors and hospitals have been abysmal and traumatic, so I’m just hoping for some support.

Year-old Pyr doesn’t bark?
This is my Great Pyrenees Nova. She just turned a year old at the end of May. I’ve seen lots of people on their subreddit talking about how their Pyr barks absolutely nonstop, outside or inside, and saying things like “once they figure out how to bark, you can’t turn that switch off.” Well, Nova doesn’t hardly bark. She and Juno spend most of her day in our fenced pasture with our goats, close enough that we can still hear and see her, but she hardly ever makes noise. The only time she (or Juno, for that matter), ever bark, is when me and my family/guests are in the yard outside her pasture or walking up to the gate to see her. We live in a rural area with lots of wild animals, surrounded by neighbors with pets as well. One of our neighbors (according to Google maps) is some sort of terrier breeder, and their dogs make noise all day long. We’re also fairly close to a main road with plenty of cars, as well as tractors, four-wheelers and the like. One would think all of this would prompt her to bark at the noise, being that they can hear for miles, but apparently not. Is this normal? (She is not deaf. She responds to our voices and the goats making noise perfectly well.)

2023.06.04 19:31 Zeta_Erathos Severe performance drop after update (6.3.4 -> 6.3.5)

I'm hoping someone might have ideas for me, as I'm frustrated beyond belief. I run EndeavourOS with Hyprland (Wayland) on a Nvidia RTX 3070 (My system stats say it's a Ti, but I'm pretty sure that's wrong). I had previous problems with performance in certain games (notably Satisfactory and DOOM, but also a builder called Fabledom and Timberborn) which were solved by installing the lib32 mesa and vulkan drivers detailed in the solution to this post; suddenly I was hitting 144 FPS on ultra settings at 1080p -- which is all I really need to play at right now. Every game I had worked wonderfully.
Then, yesterday, I upgraded my system. Kernel went from 6.3.4 to 6.3.5, with the relevant libraries and etc updated as well. And like magic, I'm back to unable to produce even 30 FPS consistently. Satisfactory is lucky to get 27 FPS on Ultra 1080p, while DOOM runs the medium settings at ~45-55 FPS. Killing prefixes does nothing, changing Proton versions doesn't work, and moving to different rendering engines in Satisfactory makes no difference. (I've tried Vulkan, DX12 and DX11, no differences in practice. Boot screen goes to 450 FPS in DX12, but once it gets into the main menu it drops to 22 FPS and stays about there.) Fabledom can't get more than 19 FPS, while Tiomberborn stutters like mad and gets ~ 45fps.
If anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate it. Or even if anyone else is seeing it, just so I don't feel so alone, lol. I saw that another person was having FPS hits when they moved to 6.3.4, but they had an AMD card, so I'm not sure it's related.

2023.06.04 19:31 Easy-Okra7836 Is it normal for a reform jew to be turned away from visiting an orthodox synagogue?

I’m currently in Panama City and there seems to be a great Jewish community here in terms of numbers. There’s a massive synagogue and university which I’ve wanted to visit for some time now.
I went to the synagogue during the day, and they had really tight security and I finally was able to speak to a member of the congregation. He came outside and immediately started asking questions about who I was and what my background with Judaism is. Ultimately it came down to him telling me that it’s not a synagogue that welcomes reform Jews, and the Ashkenazi community isn’t tightly knit.
Ultimately the man told me no, and I told him no problem and sorry for disturbing them with an unannounced visit. While waiting for my taxi to leave they had multiple members come out and look at me as if I was up to something suspicious.
I’m not sure if they just have security issues, or they genuinely feel that way about reform or Ashkenazi Jews, or if it was something about myself which I’m unaware of.
Has anyone had any similar experiences, or could provide more insight on the reform / orthodox relations? Or the Sephardic / Ashkenazi relationship?

2023.06.04 19:31 montemike7284 Propresenter 7

I'm running Propresenter 7 at my church. Great program but I'm having some slide issues. Is there anyone in the Springfield, Massachusetts area that would be willing to meet with me and help me out a bit. I have 2 feeds. A main display with 2 tvs, and then I have zoom feed using NDI. It works ok but I'm having issues with the lower thirds and video cam showing I'm background of zoom feed and sometimes they clear other times they don't.

2023.06.04 19:31 AssociationCandid411 How to help a dog with separation anxiety?

Hi guys! I recently adopted a 6 yo female griffon/caniche. It was alone in a yard and I talked with the owners who left her there since she was 1 in extreme temperatures etc.
Thank god even though she was alone her health is fine I have her 2 weeks now. She is cuddly and all she needs is love. She gets along with people, she is scared at first but seconds after she is jumping and cuddling. She is afraid of other dogs and often growls. I think she is going to be fine it’s too early and she never had relationships with dogs or humans.
The thing is, she is clingy or has separation anxiety. She is glued with me, follows me everywhere in the house. Even when she sleeps I leave her quietly and she understands it immediately and follows me. I got her a crate but I read so many opinions that I don’t know what to do. I close her door every night and she is ok. She sleeps well. In some days I will start work again and I will be gone for 6 hours so she needs to be in her crate during that time. I made her crate friendly for her with toys, chewing toys etc and treats. I closed the door yesterday at noon and left, after 5 minutes she started crying and then barking. This lasted for about 20 minutes and then she stopped. After 40 minutes I let her out. Is that the right way? Some say to not crate a dog with separation others say I should, I have work so there is no other way… , some say I should ignore her when she is following me constantly some no. What should I do I want the best for her. 💛

Toxic Rats: Geoff, Scott, Leshawna, Sammy, Trent
Mutant Maggots: Anne Maria, Katie, Molly, Scarlett, Dave, DJ
Episode 04: Finders Creepers
"Last time, on Total Drama Revenge of the Island!" Chris opened over a stock shot of the camp, the recap montage starting off with a clip of the contestants racing off towards the side of Mt. Looming Tragedy. "Twelve bumbling buffoons battled it out in a brutal buffet of bombastica," Chef was shown gleefully dropping ice blocks on the climbing campers, catching Geoff and Scott but narrowly missing Molly and almost catching Anne Maria.
"Why all the 'B' words?" B was shown demonstrating his couch invention created from junk, "Because, B proved he was a brave and brilliant improviser who scored big time for his team!" B used an ice pick to poke holes onto a shard of ice and placed it on top of the castle, directing the sun beam towards the Maggots' base and melting it effectively. "Until his bitter teammate Scott allowed brainy Molly to botch it on purpose and B got the boot," Molly threw a snowball onto the shard, melting the castle and B was shown being flung into the night.
"And now," Chris said, popping up in front of a shot of the full moon in a cloudy sky with a lit candle in his hand, marking the end of the recap montage, "tonight's challenge is about fear." He made a devilish look. "And everyone knows fear is a dish best served, in the dark!" he said in an exaggeratedly spooky manner, an eerie sound playing as he laughed evilly. "Huh?" he stopped suddenly, the camera pulling back to reveal Chef standing next to him...dressed like a showgirl with lots of peacock feathers. "Chef!" the host said in annoyance.
"Wardrobe was all out of vampire costumes," Chef explained as the series's capstone then began to play.
"It's all scary!" Chris said, walking off to the left. "Other than that," he scowled and gestured back toward his off-screen assistant. "Right here! Right now!" he resumed his usual demeanor. "On Total! Drama! Revenge, of the Island!" He adopted his spooky tone as he finished the title, and ended with another evil laugh.
Frogs and crickets chirped and croaked, joined by an owl's hoots as the episode opened on a shot of the full moon. The camera panned down to the cabins as the sound of snoring was added to the nighttime mix, and the scene cut inside to the girls' side of the Maggots' cabin where Anne Maria and Katie were sleeping peacefully in the bunk they shared. Dave and DJ were also shown sound asleep on the boys' side, and the scene cut to the Rat boys to show Geoff also sound asleep.
The camera cut next to show Sammy waking up with a yawn. She stretched her arms out for a few good seconds and fell right back to sleep...until the sudden shrill wail of a blow horn pierced the air.
"RUN! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!" Chris hollered from off-screen as the scene cut back outside, the blowhorn continuing even over the panicked shouts of the campers.
The camera briefly cut to a close-up of the blowhorn still blowing, then over to the Maggots' cabin as they ran outside fully dressed – first Katie screaming "What's happening?!"; then DJ just screaming; then Scarlett yelling out "This is unethical!"; then Anne Maria just hollering; and then finally Dave coming out, calling out "I'm wide awake!"
The Rats were shown next, Scott grunting "Me first!" as he shoved Geoff down the stairs and slid down the railing; Leshawna quickly running after him; Sammy screaming at the top of her lungs; and Trent coming out last at around the same time while screaming.
They assembled nervously in the common area between cabins, where Chris – wearing a pair of heavy earmuffs – finally eased up on the blowhorn. "Glad you all could make it," he grinned as he took off his headgear.
Molly soon arrived later. "Is there an attack or what?" she asked her teammates.
Katie shot her a quick glare. "Of course not, but why would you care about anything but yourself?"
Confessional: Molly
"Olay, yes," Molly moaned. "I left my teammates behind, but that was because I wanted to win the challenge first. I was always taught to focus on one thing before moving on to the next, and that's what I did." She grew concerned. "I don't see any problems with that."
Confessional Ends
"I hope you're all ready," Chris continued, "'cause it's challenge time!" He stepped to the side as Chef rolled up a large widescreen television on a wheeled cart. It was currently displaying an aerial map of the island with several additional colored icons – six bright green skulls scattered around the island; three yellowish envelopes over the campfire pit, the western edge of the campgrounds, and deeper into the forest; and a large purple spider in the middle of it all.
"We're gonna do a challenge?" Anne Maria wondered. "In the middle of the woods? At night?"
Confessional: Anne Maria
"Doesn't Chris know that we need our hours of sleep?" Anne Maria criticized. "I haven't even done my hair."
Confessional Ends
"Your challenge," Chris continued as though there'd been no interruption, "a scavenger hunt for three creepy souvenirs. Your locations? A haunted forest," he walked across to the other side of the television, "a scaaary pet cemetery, and an extra spooktastic cave. First team to each location gets a special clue," he said, the camera zooming in as he pointed towards the westernmost letter icon on the screen. "But watch out for booby traps," he added jovially as he moved his finger to one of the skulls, "I really went to town with them, heheh." The campers were shown watching warily.
"So move fast," the host added, "and stick together. You'll be penalized for each player you lose!"
"Umm, what's with the giant spider?" Sammy asked.
"Oh yeah," Chris answered as the shot zoomed in on the icon in question, "there's some kinda gigantic mutated spider sorta running around loose on the island."
The cast immediately started to voice their fears and protests.
"A huge, humongous spider is on the loose?!" DJ hugged Katie out of fear.
"I guess so," Katie said frightfully, but was secretly enjoying DJ hugging her.
The shot zoomed in on Dave in particular as he looked around, moaning "Oh no..." in annoyance.
Confessional: Dave
"Ever since I was a kid, I've never been a huge fan of spiders," Dave admitted. "They leave messy webs everywhere they go, and it takes me a long time to clean them up in places like my uncle's attic or my aunt's basement." A spider soon crawled down on a string. "This is gonna be unpopular, but I'm not a huge fan of Spider-Man because of my dislike of spiders." The spider hissed after hearing the criticism, making Dave flinch.
Confessional: Leshawna
"I may seem fearless on the outside, but spiders are one of the few things I'm terrified of," Leshawna said nervously. "Anything with eight legs is frightening enough."
Confessional Ends
"And since I want to keep things fair for both teams," Chris continued, "I decided to bring back an eliminated contestant for the Rats."
"It's so good to be back here!" the familiar voice of Sierra was heard, becoming more recognizable when she ran next to Chris.
"Sierra! I haven't introduced you yet!" Chris snapped at her.
"If I waited any longer, the episode would've been past the usual 22-minute runtime," Sierra explained. "I'll just go join the Toxic Rats and save you the trouble of doing so since I've rejoined."
Chris watched the fangirl run up to the contestants in annoyance. "Long story short, Sierra is the returnee." Chris regained his smile, and the dramatic and almost heroic tune started playing again. "There's nothing to fear but mortal terror itself! Talk soon," he added impishly, sounding his blowhorn once again.
The twelve campers ran off towards the woods.
The footage flashed ahead to another shot of the full moon over the forested hills of Wawanakwa, an owl hooting as the scene cut down to ground level. The logo of the Toxic Rats appeared in the corner of the screen just before the team itself did, running up and stopping in front of a tree with a loudspeaker set up in its branches.
"We're in first place! Sweet!" Geoff cheered just before the loudspeaker whined into activity.
"Welcome to the Haunted Forest!" Chris announced over it, the shot panning downward to show the six Rats gathering around a small crack in the ground. "Your clue can be found at the base of this tree!" Sierra reached into the hole...and screamed in pain as something metallic snapped inside the hole.
"Inside a bear trap," Chris finished his announcement with a laugh.
Sierra withdrew her hand from the hole, the trap clamped down firmly on her arm – though she was at least clutching a note in her hand. "Here! Read the clue," she said, passing it to a mildly shocked Sammy. Just as she was about to read it, the sound of approaching footsteps distracted her and her teammates.
"Bad news guys," Anne Maria commented from the six Maggots. "They have the clue."
"Even with a team advantage they still managed to beat us," Katie reminded them.
"We can let the opposing team have their clue," Scarlett said, looking back towards her teammates. "I have another plan," she said, running ahead with her teammates in tow.
The shot cut to the Maggots as they stopped at a clearing further along the trail. "So what's the plan?" Katie asked the girl in front.
"Find a place to hide so we can follow the Rats and their clue to our first souvenir," Scarlett answered. "Into that bush!"
The Maggots dived and painfully tried to hide in a thorn bush.
"Be quiet," Dave hissed, "They're coming."
"Inside a knot is a nest," Sammy read as the scene cut to the Rats. "Your souvenir lives with a pest. Find Polaris to travel northwest? Polaris is the North Star."
"The North Star is right there, so this way's northwest! There's a path!" Trent declared. He ran off, the rest of his teammates following suit.
"Now we follow!" Scarlett declared as the rest of her teammates came out of the bush.
The Rats' logo reappeared as the footage skipped ahead again to them running along through the woods.
"Inside a knot is a nest," Geoff muttered to himself as the shot zoomed in on him. "Hey Sammy, what was the rest of that poem again?" he called back without taking his eyes off the path ahead.
When he didn't get an answer he immediately skidded to a stop. "Sammy?!" he yelled in rising panic, and looked back to see nobody behind him.
The shot cut back to show that the rest of the Rats had stopped in their tracks. "What? Did we lose the mouse?" Scott asked.
Geoff gulped. "We get a penalty for each player we lose, right?" he asked nervously.
"And there's a spider crawling around, right?!" Leshawna said in panic. The shot cut outward as he did so, showing a large purple spider crawling down through the shadows of the forest trees.
"We're looking for a knot with a nest, right?" Scott looked off to the right; the camera quick-panned over to a large tree with a noticeable hollow knot in the trunk with the hints of a nest inside; a few green and red marks had been spray-painted on the bark under it.
"There it is!" Leshawna said, immediately rushing towards it.
"But what about Sammy?" Trent asked his team.
"We'll look for her after we get the souvenir," Sierra assured him.
Leshawna started climbing up the trunk as the rest of her team ran up to join her, and soon began to root through the tree hollow with one arm.
Suddenly, a large eye opened up inside the hollow and stared directly at Leshawna. She screamed, and several squid-like tentacles reached out of the tree's other hollows. One quickly grabbed her around the neck and held her up, while another gave her a few wet slaps then poked her in the eye.
"My eye!" Leshawna yelped in pain and terror. In response the tentacle tightened its grip, and Leshawna began to choke.
"What do we do!?" Sierra yelled in panic.
Geoff looked around, then bent down and picked up a handful of small rocks. "We can throw these stones at the octo guy!"
"Good idea!" Scott said as he and his team picked up rocks of their own and began throwing them at the creature, but they seemed to be hitting Leshawna more than the mutant squid-tree monster. Eventually, the thing just raised its captive up even higher, then slammed her down onto the ground and hissed at the others.
"RUN!" Geoff shouted, turning to flee as a tentacle shot towards them, forcing them to scatter.
Unfortunately, Trent was unable to get away in time and was lifted up by the leg. Trent cried in pain as the mutant began to punch him in the stomach with a curled-up tentacle.
The sounds of pain and wet punches caused Leshawna to get frustrated. "No way am I gonna get pushed around or let a squid attack my teammates!" she declared, getting back on her feet and climbing up the tree-squid's trunk while it was distracted. "Quit buggin' us!" she cried as she punched the mutant in the eye.
The beast bellowed in pain, dropping Trent and retracting into its tree. As soon as he got back up, a strand of spider's webbing shot down from above, sticking on to his head and pulling him away from the floor.
Leshawna reached into the knot once again, quickly and triumphantly pulling out a brass key. "And that's how I roll!" she called down to her teammates.
She dropped down to the forest floor, and landed in front of Geoff, who grinned when he saw it. "We got the key, Trent." Geoff received no response as Scott rejoined.
"Trent?!" Leshawna yelled out in concern. "Where are you?!"
As she panicked, the shot changed to a perspective further away, and the footage switched to an infrared shot of the four Rats.
"Guess he's gone," Sierra sighed sadly. "On the plus side, we found the key."
"We lost two players!" Leshawna said. "Shouldn't we go and look for them?"
"Knowing Chris, he probably has them trapped someplace else, so I'm not too worried right now," Scott brushed it off.
"You've got a point there," Geoff agreed.
Just then, the six Maggots arrived on the scene.
Scott was the first to notice them. "No luck here," he quickly said with faux disappointment, "Do you want to see if Sammy and Trent saw anything better over there?" he looked back and asked Sierra, Leshawna, and Geoff.
"Absolutely. It's not just the three of us," Sierra caught on before they turned and ran off.
"I see something!" Katie pointed off to the camera's right – the direction of the squid-tree. "Team colors!" The camera briefly cut over to the knot in question, with a focus on the marks below it in the two teams' colors.
"Excellent eye, Katie," Scarlett complimented while DJ ran to the tree.
"I'm not just a phone addict, y'know," Katie laughed a bit.
"I got the key, everyone," the camera cut to DJ who was in the tree's hollow and holding out a key. He threw the key in front of Dave and Molly.
"Way to go, DJ!" Molly said.
"Now you want to support us," Dave snarked at her. "Where was that when I was frozen?"
"Are you still mad about that?" Molly groaned.
"Of course we are," Katie snorted.
"You don't just leave your teammates behind," Dave lectured.
"Whatever happened happened," Anne Maria got in between them. "Let's focus more on the challenge and less on squabbling right now."
Confessional: Anne Maria
"I'm here to start no fights," Anne Maria confessed. "What Molly did was messed up, but they can scold her after the challenge."
Confessional: Molly
"Thank you, Anne Maria," Molly let out a sigh of relief. "Finally, someone who won't ride on me for my choices!"
Confessionals End
"You're right, Anne Maria," Dave sighed. "We shouldn't waste anymore time fighting."
As Dave bent down to pick up the key, however, a line of spider silk shot down from the treetops, wrapped around Molly, and pulled her up out of sight.
DJ regrouped with his team. "They said they saw something far away, so maybe-" he paused and looked behind his teammates. "Wait, where's Molly?"
The other four looked behind them and gasped. "Oh no, Molly's got taken by the spider!" Dave cried out.
"What do we do now?" Anne Maria griped.
Scarlett sighed. "Not to sound apathetic, but I think we're gonna have to continue on without her."
"Are you sure about that?" Katie questioned.
"I'm sure we can catch up to wherever she's being taken to," Scarlett waved off her concern.
"Well, I hope so," Katie said as she and the team exchanged nervous looks.
Confessional: Dave
"I don't see Molly in the best light right now, but that doesn't mean that I want her to be taken away," Dave began to shudder. "Especially by a spider."
Confessional Ends
"Why are we running so slow when we're in a challenge?" Geoff said as the scene moved back to him, Sierra, Scott, and Leshawna running through the forest. "We won't beat the other team at this rate."
"Relax, I know what I'm doing," Scott conversed with him.
Confessional: Scott
Scott was whittling another piece of wood with his shark tooth. "I'm heading us back into last place where we belong. Another elimination ceremony for the Rats and it's bye-bye Geoff! Or Sierra. I can't decide."
Confessional Ends
"C'mon, let's rock this! With years of exercise and partying, I've got energy to burn!" Geoff said, snatching the key from Leshawna and jogging ahead. The three followed him, but the camera kept its focus on Geoff as he passed a tree stump, then a rock; then stepped on a mysterious clump of dirt… which exploded and sent him flying.
Leshawna, Sierra, and Scott stopped immediately, the shot showing Sierra and Leshawna being shocked and Scott showing delight as Geoff got launched from one land mine to the next off-screen.
During this, however, a line of spider webbing was shot onto Sierra's leg. It quickly wrapped around it and tugged Sierra away from her team.
The camera finally cut back to Geoff, singed and groaning on the ground in an awkward but still holding the Rats' key. The Maggots approached him moments later. "Sorry that had to happen, doll!" Anne Maria comforted as she ran past Geoff.
Scott and Leshawna came to Geoff's need. "You gonna be alright?" Leshawna helped him up.
"I'll walk it off," Geoff tried to remain cool headed.
"Thanks, focus boy," Scott said.
"I don't want to strain my calves," Geoff added.
"We should leave in a few minutes just to make sure we catch up to the other team," Leshawna said. "Sierra just got captured, and I don't want us sticking around here."
The scene cut to the lantern-lit cemetery. The camera panned left across its headstones and crosses, several of which were pet-themed, to the entrance as the five remaining Mutant Maggots arrived, huffing and puffing from their run.
"Welcome to the Wawanakwa Pet Cemetery!" Chris greeted them over the loudspeaker.
"We're first. Nice!" Dave said.
"What's the clue?" Anne Maria asked Scarlett.
The camera cut in close as she opened the lid to a small coffin in an open grave, revealing a ragged piece of paper within bearing a list of numbers: 5 in the first row; 5 in the second; 5 in the third. Notably, while most of the numbers were plain black there were three 6s and the 18 were all an eye-catching red. "Three 6's is normally not a good indication of luck," Scarlett said with a nervous look.
"Let's fan out and look for numbers!" DJ said as the perspective cut back to its usual sideview.
"By ourselves?" Anne Maria asked.
"I'm in a creepy cemetery in the middle of the woods looking for three 6s. It's no big deal," Anne Maria said warily as she backed through the graveyard. "Good news is, there aren't any owls hooting around. I think I'm safe," she told herself, pausing to smile. "Now, let's see if I can find any numbers..."
She turned around and started examining the nearest headstone, and the shot cut to a view from afar, the footage switching back to infrared. The monster serving as the camera's viewpoint blinked, and when it opened its eyes it had gotten much closer to the jersey girl, and had extended four sharp limbs with tiny claws on the end towards her...
Anne Maria's scream echoed through the cemetery, quickly catching the attention of Katie, DJ, Scarlett, and Dave as they looked up in shock. "Anne Maria?" Dave asked out in concern, the footage quickly skipping ahead to show all four arriving at the location the tanned young lady had been snatched from.
"I could've sworn she was just here," Dave said in confusion.
They all gasped. "Where'd she go?" Katie asked in mild terror.
"I'm just as concerned as you all are," Scarlett started, "but like what happened with Molly, we should move along and hope to catch up with them."
"I know you're trying to be reasonable," DJ said, "but you're rubbing me off the wrong way."
"Yeah, it's like you don't care about what could happen to our teammates," Dave told her.
"I'm just used to not expressing my emotions on occasion," Scarlett told her team members. "Thank you very much."
The scene flashed to the Rats, where Scott and Leshawna were next to grimy coffins propped upright against a couple statues.
"Find the souvenir, hide the souvenir, lose the game…" Scott went in to unlock the coffin, but was interrupted by Fang bursting out of the coffin with a menacing grin.
"AAAAHHHHH!" The devious ran away screaming when Fang moved to chase after him.
Geoff was looking at a grave that was open. "This grave smells like french fries. Weird, but I'm not complaining." He got shoved in thanks to Scott running away from Fang.
The camera followed Scott as he ran past two open graves, one of which with a mound of dirt in front of it.
The mutant shark followed his quarry, but when Scott leapt over the mound of dirt, Fang tripped over it. The shark fell into the open grave and growled.
"Why does this graveyard smell like fries?" Katie wondered aloud, following a scent as she walked through the cemetery. She soon came to the pit Geoff was in. "Maybe it's coming from there."
"Hello? Anybody? I need someone to help me down here!" Geoff called out.
Katie backed away a bit. "Did that hole just talk?"
"It's me. Geoff!" Geoff tried to denounce her belief.
"Oh right," Katie sighed in relief. "You're the guy with the cowboy hat."
"That's right," Geoff confirmed her statement. "I fell down this hole, and I'm covered in grease right now."
"So that explains the smell," Katie realized.
"Can you get me out of here?" Geoff begged her. "Grease doesn't mesh well with my shirt."
"I would, but I have to help my team right now," Katie declined. "One of your teammates could get you out. Bye," she left the scene.
"This sucks," Geoff whined, unaware of four maggots coming by the grave. As soon as they saw the grease and Geoff, they jumped in and attacked him, making him howl in agony.
The scene cut to Chris, who was watching feeds of both teams on a trio of monitors and laughing hysterically. "Will anyone make it to the spooky cave?" he turned and asked the camera, holding a covered cup with a straw in it. "And if so, how can they possibly make it all the way to the finish line? Less brain, more pain, when we return!" he said, finishing with a sip of his drink.

2023.06.04 19:30 Emotional-Will7032 F23 M31 , drugs and marriage

I 23F met my husband 31M when I was 18 and he was 26 five years ago. We fell in love instantly and we moved cities to be with each other within the first 3 months. I have known he was a recovered addict and had been thru rehab successfully. What I didn’t know was that he was using again. I found this out after moving in together when it came time for him to buy more drugs. He drives 4hrs away to buy them, so it was something he had to come clean about. It devastated me but he reassured me he was only taking a small amount and that he would be weaning off soon. He’s a fully functional addict and is employed and has an outgoing personality and loved to do the things I loved. So I took his word. I was naive as an 18yr old. Fast forward to getting married after 4 yrs together, his addiction had slowly gotten worse, since over time his tolerance has built up. The summer after our wedding he joint an outpatient clinic for getting in Suboxone. It was hard for him but I was really proud and saw this as a big step. He was saving money and his addiction was headed in the right direction for the first time. Well after 3 months he gave in and went back to his drug. It’s been almost a year now and he’s not showing signs of getting better. We want to buy a home and have kids soon. But I just can’t be excited about our future without him committing to getting better. Recently I decided to think about how much he’s actually spent on drugs just during our relationship, and it was shocking. Nearly 150k in 5 years. We are struggling to save for a down payment, and to think had he quit when we met he could single handily afford a home and kids with the money that’s been wasted on drugs. It sucks. I love him so much, he wants to get clean but I’ve realized that may never happen. The cherry on top is that everyone believes he has maintained sobriety since rehab, so I have no one to open up to. I feel alone and unsure of what to do. We want kids so bad, but I can’t let myself get pregnant knowing he’s addicted and may never be able to quit like he says he will. I don’t want to leave him, I just wish I could support him in the recovery process, but I’m realizing I’m more of an enabler at this point. Should I leave him? Should I stick by his side and ride it out ?

2023.06.04 19:30 AssociationCandid411 How to help a rescued dog with separation anxiety?

Hi guys! I recently adopted a 6 yo female griffon/caniche. It was alone in a yard and I talked with the owners who left her there since she was 1 in extreme temperatures etc.
Thank god even though she was alone her health is fine I have her 2 weeks now. She is cuddly and all she needs is love. She gets along with people, she is scared at first but seconds after she is jumping and cuddling. She is afraid of other dogs and often growls. I think she is going to be fine it’s too early and she never had relationships with dogs or humans.
The thing is, she is clingy or has separation anxiety. She is glued with me, follows me everywhere in the house. Even when she sleeps I leave her quietly and she understands it immediately and follows me. I got her a crate but I read so many opinions that I don’t know what to do. I close her door every night and she is ok. She sleeps well. In some days I will start work again and I will be gone for 6 hours so she needs to be in her crate during that time. I made her crate friendly for her with toys, chewing toys etc and treats. I closed the door yesterday at noon and left, after 5 minutes she started crying and then barking. This lasted for about 20 minutes and then she stopped. After 40 minutes I let her out. Is that the right way? Some say to not crate a dog with separation others say I should, I have work so there is no other way… , some say I should ignore her when she is following me constantly some no. What should I do I want the best for her. 💛

2023.06.04 19:30 General_Meat2643 After they are rescued….

I have been thinking a lot about what would happen after they were rescued. I know we have heard bits and pieces and seen one clip of them post rescue. Now here’s a couple things I think happened and some stuff that’s still confusing. 1.we know they all got together at some point post rescue and made a pact of some sorts to stick to the story Shauna which was there plane crashed we scavenged scraped to get bye lost some friends an prayed for months till they were rescued. Also we were backed up several times to this also van said her biggest thing for not sending Lottie back to the nut house was they promised to always be there for each other which they kinda have been in all the adult time line except for van maybe something real bad happened between her and tai I would assume so. Also they kinda let Travis down although it seems he didn’t want to stay in touch with them(he prob still blames them for javis death) so I am also gonna guess at some point they all got back tighter if they split up and Shauna and nat seem to be in good terms through our season 1. I’m sure after they showed her writing in her journal she was up set with nat being picked queen. There pact overall has stayed true here is a big question I have had I was talking to a friend about this after the wreck and they get rescued wouldn’t they have sued the airline Lottie’s father anyone they can. I thought they would but my friend made a good point if there were lawsuits they would all have to talk under other in depositions. Now they could all stick to the story which they have been pretty good at but with money involved people change. And there are conflicting things that make me think they got something or they didn’t. Nat had a Porsche that was prob a 75k and up car but in the same sense they harp on the point that Shauna is broke. Also van is struggling as well. Tai def has money she paid for nats treatment a couple times but she is a lawyer. Travis is working and living alone Misty seems ok or good finally but she is a single nurse. Opinions on that please. 3.will they ever wind up telling there story. From all evidence that we have the main girls won’t but if there happens to be another survivor who made it out and they don’t know did (Ben?) could he be waiting all this time to take the girls down at the right time maybe?revenge will make u do some crazy things. 4. We know Lottie went to a mental facility and we know the girls got together for Shauna and Jeff wedding also Shauna and Jeff have a meal and get together with Jackie parents on her birthday. That’s all I can think of what we know post rescue before we get the adult time line 25 years later. Did I miss anything and any other theory’s?

2023.06.04 19:30 ScrumLord1999 Drank too much at work event

I drank too much at a work event yesterday. I manage an apartment complex and we throw parties for the residents about once a month. I usually drink at them and drink a lot, but I haven’t gotten too bad at them until yesterday. I drank all day and stayed after and went out with some residents to a concert in the park, and then a bar after where I blacked out. I told some of them personal things I shouldn’t have, I walked back to the complex and some of them saw me wasted. I left my phone and flip flops in the courtyard and drove home blacked out. I don’t know what to do about this.
I can’t stand the thought of being sober, I also can’t stand the uncertainty that comes with drinking that sometimes I’m going to black out and greatly embarrass myself. I feel like I want to quit this job after embarrassing myself like this. It’s my family’s company too. I really fucked up. I’m a loser and I hate myself. I kind of want to die. I’m such a disappointment. I’ve tried sobriety and AA so many times and I always end up a miserable person.

2023.06.04 19:30 anabananna1 He broke up with me 3 days ago and then says he wants to meet up to talk about it more? What is the point?

I guess I should refer to him as my ex. We had been dating for about 9 months now. We were long distant for 3 of those months. 3 weeks ago, he came to visit and we were having breakfast in a city not too far from where I live. He randomly brought up a certain viewpoint on human rights (won’t specify what) which led to us having a full blown argument for over an hour. I truly don’t know how I went through this entire relationship without talking about certain important topics.
In the beginning he had mentioned about his political views and I didn’t care much about it because I’ll be honest and say I’m not much into politics even though I feel differently than him. This recent argument we had made me realize how different we both are. Some of our fundamental core beliefs are so different from one another which I know can cause a problem in the future. After that argument, I did start to view him in a different light. But, I truly thought we could make it work despite the differences.
A week after, we were talking on the phone and I told him I’m scared of the differences we have on certain topics. But, he assured me that things will be fine and I just believed him. However, in the past couple of days, I’ve noticed him acting distant with me. We had barely talked then 3 days ago, he called me saying he thinks this isn’t working out because of the differences we have. I’d be lying if I said I was surprised to hear him say this because it was also in the back of my mind too. I am very attached to him so I think I was sort of overlooking the issue of that topic.
I know I need to think realistically about us. The thing that’s confusing me is when I had talked to him about being scared he completely reassured me saying we will be fine. That same day he was also asking me about my friends wedding I’m flying to in 2 months and that he wants to try his best to be there also. So, it almost feels out of nowhere he just suddenly thinks we won’t work out anymore. Unless he’s using that as an excuse to leave because he just simply does not want to be with me anymore. I did always feel like I had stronger feelings for him than he did for me.
The day he called me to say he thinks we won’t work out, we talked on the phone for more than 2 hours and he said we can talk more in person if I want. And that he wants to remain friends and stay in my life. In those 3 days after we had talked, we have still been texting and I made it clear to him that I still want to be together. But he still kept bringing those issues up. At this point, I don’t even know if it’s worth meeting up and talking about it. I don’t want to convince him to stay with me. But then I also feel like there are things I want to clear up with him in person. I don’t want to have regrets down the line that we didn’t get to talk about everything. I’m truly at an impasse here and don’t know what to do. Do I meet up with him to talk more or do I just tell him no I don’t want to see you and I don’t think we should be friends and officially end it?

2023.06.04 19:30 EvidenceZestyclose29 Abusive husband getting sympathy

I left my abusive husband 5 weeks ago after he SA’d me for the umpteenth time and I finally snapped and left. He turned up at my mums house the next day, tried to kick the back doors in to get to us with a look of pure hatred in his eyes. We ran out the front with the children, he came back round, charged at me, tried to take the children out of my arms whilst biting me and my mum because his arms were taken up trying to get the children off me. The police said from how bad the marks were on me…if I hadn’t been wearing a jumper, he would have taken chunks out of me. My mum had her arm around his face from behind in her attempt to get him off me and the children and that’s when he bit her. He’s saying he remembered biting my mum but only out of self defence because he couldn’t breathe. He’s denying biting me at all, I’m assuming because he doesn’t have a ‘defence’ for it like he does for biting my mum. After my mum managed to get him off me, he walked off, put a status that he was going to unalive himself and went missing for the night. Police found him hiding at his sisters after she told them she didn’t know where he was. I had abuse from his sisters the night it happened, saying they were fuming with me, they were going to ‘have me’ even after I told them what he had done to me and their nephews.
I’ve been trying to rise above gossip and people that don’t matter. But today it’s really upsetting me that he’s getting so much sympathy from people because they don’t know the whole story. My mums boyfriend approached him in the pub last night and asked why he bit us, and he said he was being strangled… before the conversation could go any further, the bar maid told them to not do this in the pub and my mums bf left. It’s a local pub where everyone knows each other and apparently after the conversation, people sat with my ex and comforted him. I’m not going to do it, because it could jeopardise the court case, but I wish I could just show people the bruises, tell them exactly how controlling and coercive he is, how I’m suffering from PTSD from everything he’s put me through. When people are thinking I’m being a terrible person for organising supervised visits with the children instead of just letting him have them, when he’s the one who traumatised them after attacking their mum and grandma in front of them. And tried to kidnap them! I think people are excusing his behaviour because he’s downplayed what he did and ‘poor him, he was just emotional because she left him’ people don’t act in the way he did! That’s not ok behaviour!
How do I make myself not bothered by this? I’m so sick of it all, sick of being too scared to sleep because of the nightmares, scared to go out incase I see him or his family. I have no money because he cleared the bank account the day I left. I’ve left our family home and staying at my mums with no way of being able to afford getting our own place again for me and the boys. I just can’t see this ever getting better, there’s just going to be more abuse and stress along the way.

2023.06.04 19:30 chadwanggone Trying my best…

So here’s the story: Today I’m a 32yo male with a great job and bright future ahead, I’ve focused on my career for the past 10 years and reached heights I’ve only dreamed of achieving at a later stage in my life. Few years ago, I hooked up with a coworker and it was all fun and game until I realized that she have more feelings for than I did. Just at that point, I decided to break up with her, that hurt her a lot. Somehow we ended up being friends, and with COVID and everything happened we realized that we’re greater friends than we expected. With my career development, she ended up being a direct report of mine. Just prior to that, we both realized that we have stronger feelings for each other that goes beyond just being friends and we decided to give it another try. Throughout the time, we continued to develop stronger feelings for each other and actually loved each other very very much.
I’m the type of person that doesn’t hold back past emotions and like to move forward with my life in a more positive way. She on the other hand holds her past negative emotions to a greater extent and we’ve told each other that we need to work on being more aware of that. I’ve had a fair share of my mistakes, whether it’s saying something stupid that hurt her feelings with no intention, or not prioritizing her when I needed to. At every step of the way, I’ve admitted my mistake and apologized for it and made a change in my life to never do it again. When I know that I’ve done something wrong, I immediately want to talk about it and put it past me, on the other hand she needs time to process and most time it comes out in bulk and compounded with previous feelings and emotions - but some how we always move past it. I’ve let go of a lot negative feelings and emotions that she invoked in me simply out of love and more out of guilt. But lately, that’s been really putting a damp in the relationship, the more she invokes those negative emotions in me the harder I find it to ignore.
In last conversation, a very tough one, I told her about all of that and her immediate response that I was making it about me and dismissing a lot of her feelings - ones that it take a giant fight in order for me to understand. It’s entirely not what I’m intending to do, but it’s actually something that I would like to discuss and find a common ground on how to deal with. At that moment, I shut down and I couldn’t really move forward with the conversation because I was afraid that I’m gonna say something that I would regret and asked for some space for me to process everything.
There’s a big piece of me that believes that she’ll never forgive me for anything that has been done before and it will always come out to hurt our relationship. The bigger piece is my love for her and the pure desire to have a healthy and happy relationship for both of us. In me there’s a major fear that I’m hurting her even more and I wanna make sure that everything I do isn’t dismissing her feelings or gaslighting her. On the other hand our collective and individual happiness regardless of the relationship status is of the at most importance. What are your thoughts?
