2023.03.25 12:00 spiritualcicada66 I just can't be around my parents anymore.

I mentioned to NMum that she often goes on her phone while we're in the middle of a conversation, and this doesn't feel good and makes me feel like what I have to say isn't worth listening to. I know this was a really stupid thing to do and absolutely a mistake. But I feel like you should be able to raise this with someone?
Of course she blew up: how can you be so cruel, do you think I'm a horrible mother, shouting screaming etc., interrupting me. I couldn't get a word in. She was inventing things I hadn't said. She also said "get some friends, I can't be your entire social life, I'm not going to give you more of my time, you're an adult". All I was saying was I feel hurt when she gets her phone out. I'm barely even home most days !!! I'm not even asking for anything here!
My father overheard and told me what I'm feeling is "objectively not true", "I need to seek therapy", "there must be another issue going on in your life, you're making this up, why don't you tell us the real problem". He does this clicking thing when I speak, like 'get a move on', talks over me, shuts me up. He says these horrible things then expects me to just take it. If I try to reply he shuts me down.
Brother is GC, he's 22 and gets tons of support/special treatment, he chose to move interstate and doesn't have to get a job because of all the money he gets from my parents and the government. He's extremely abusive and horrible - like actual jekyll/hyde monster. I mean huge trauma, violence, incidents with police, emotional abuse for the last decade. Manipulated and abused his two prior girlfriends so much, one of them developed a psychiatric disorder and the other started drinking. I'm not allowed to mention any of this, I get shut down and they call it "sibling rivalry".
I wish I could move out but just cannot do that right now. (You know I would if it were that simple.) I think I'm going to minimise contact as much as possible. They'll definitely use that against me, but it's the only way to protect myself. Reading this sub is helping a lot - it's just nice to hear from people who understand .

2023.03.25 12:00 SapiosexualGuy 27[M4F] India/Anywhere - a relationship based on transparency, compatibility and understanding

Hi, i'm Indian but doesn't matter where you are from. I can move for the right person. Or even better if you can come to India. I'm searching for a woman whom I have an understanding with, who accepts me in spite of the things I can't change about myself, who loves me truly.

About you : most things are not a dealbreaker for me. I am accepting of almost everything. I don't have high requirements from a partner, but i have basic expectations in that you put in consistent effort.

My Personality : I am an open book person and will reveal a lot of information about me pretty soon. I see no point in give you a false idea of what i am not or showing myself as someone different to match up with your expectations from a person. But i'm willing to adapt and change myself to become better and more compatible/suitable up to an extent. My empathy is based on either logic or the suffering i've myself gone through. So don't expect me to be the super feeling types but i'm not stone cold as well.

to summate what i am :

My good aspects : Honesty, logic, communication-skills, modesty , diligence , adaptability ,

Average aspects : looks , money, knowledge, fitness and physical health

My weak aspects : i often feel like I'm not good enough for other person. I am blunt, say hurtful inappropriate things sometimes, my career / education

I am a hopeless romantic. Mix of sapiosexual and demisexual. But not entirely since physical attraction matters too.

So, I'm looking for someone patient yet practical , but still believes in true affection. Not necessarily a fairytale romance, but where we really care about each other. A relationship based on honesty and transparency. Only slight trust is necessary, else logic can make up for the lack of faith, since blindly believing someone is also risky.

I'll write ten assorted facts about me to help you figure out if i'm good match -

  1. I neither believe in god nor disbelieve.
  2. life of course has a purpose , but I wish I was strongly motivated to work on it
  3. I have no pets but I love animals so much that I decided to turn vegetarian
  4. I don't have much of a relationship history. But I have had experiences interacting with many women online.
  5. while i'm parsimonious in general about spending, I never compromise on things of importance like nutrition. I love electronics and technology. I'm a big fan of open source apps, being a programmer.
  6. while i'm pretty frank and straightforward, it comes with the drawback that my words end up being hurtful. Afterall , no one likes to be pointed the truth.
  7. I love hugs and cuddles and giving massage. But my primary love language is acts of service.
  8. while I do have preferences, i'm not rigid. I'm pretty versatile and adjusting to your needs as long as you are the same. But I leave it to you mostly where you would like to take our relationship forward, whether you prefer marriage or live-in, etc. We can discuss pros and cons of our decisions and express our individual desires before arriving at a joint decision.
  9. I get into debates a lot. I always have a counter argument. And I appreciate if you get into a logical non heated discussion with me on the ideas we differ in. Like good conversation starters can be - Whether the saying "we need to love ourselves before someone can love us" is true / false. Or should couples be allowed to check each other's phone anytime. Do you think people deserve to know the true reason when they are turned down in dating/ professional settings or is it sometimes more practical to give an excuse or no reason at all.
  10. I don't want kids. I prefer being childfree. My life situations and ethical beliefs and overpopulated state of world are some reasons for that.
  11. I have no interest in smoking, drinking, addictive substances, piercings, hair dyeing, superstitions , horoscope, tarot, manga, cars, bikes, watches etc. Used to like some games and anime when I was younger but not anymore. Traveling is only fun with a partner and not without.

My life philosophy -

- happiness is something temporary and relative to our past state, so running after it is futile. We rather take all good pains (like exercising, yoga) and focus on productivity. Struggles will make the reward much sweeter.
- we find pleasure in food only after having experienced the pain of hunger, or sleep feels restful only after a hard day's work. That's why it's impossible to be happy unless there's sadness or pain preceding it. Or we can only appreciate light if we experienced darkness.
-It's impossible to avoid hardships and suffering and be permanently happy.
-Enjoying path is more important than doing things just for expectations of happiness from an outcome.
-We shouldn't assume anything unless proven. It's alright to have beliefs but not let them cloud our rationality.
-If I don't gracefully take good pains, environment will give me bad pains anyhow. But progress will be hindered. Bad pains will cause damage to my mind, body, good pains will cause my growth.

Please message me if you related with anything of the above or even if you are of a different mindset.

2023.03.25 11:59 CoolGuess What’s some of Anime content that you can watch on OTT platform in India? Content like Naruto and Pokémon

Really wanting to find out where can I get more anime content in India. Whenever I ask, people start judging me. I don’t really care though!
One of the reasons I love anime so much is the stunning animation that accompanies these stories. From the fluid fight scenes of Demon Slayer to the gorgeous landscapes of Your Name, anime has some of the most visually stunning and imaginative animation out there. The attention to detail in character design, background art, and special effects is truly a feast for the eyes.
But anime is more than just entertainment; it's a cultural experience. Many anime series are steeped in Japanese mythology, history, and culture, offering a window into a fascinating and rich society. From the traditional architecture of Kyoto to the rituals of the Shinto religion, anime has helped me learn about and appreciate the beauty of Japanese culture in a way that no other medium could.
Of course, being a fan of anime isn't always easy. The stigma that surrounds anime fans can be frustrating, with many people dismissing it as just a form of "cartoons for kids." But I know firsthand that anime has the power to inspire, entertain, and even change lives. The friendships I've made through anime fandom have been some of the most meaningful and rewarding relationships of my life.
In conclusion, being a fan of anime is more than just enjoying a TV show or movie; it's a passion, a lifestyle, and a love for the unique art form that is Japanese animation. I'm grateful for the countless hours of entertainment, the insights into another culture, and the wonderful community of fans that anime has given me. To all my fellow anime fans out there, keep loving what you love and never let anyone make you feel ashamed of it.

You’ve stumbled across this page for a reason.
It’s not because you’ve heard of this crazy new business model called ‘SMMA’ and it’s not because you’re struggling to sign your first client.
It’s because you’re exasperated. You’re frustrated. And you know you can do better. You’re stuck in a pair of “golden handcuffs”: running a mildly-successful agency but beholden to your clients, your staff, and your phone.
You’ve broken the one inviolable rule of running an agency and not kept a full pipeline.
You know that you can reach the upper echelon of agency owners making six-and-seven figures, whilst working less than six-and-seven hours a week. You just don’t know how… My name’s Iman Gadzhi and since 2017, I’ve run IAG Media. In this time, I’ve worked with some of the biggest names in the industry, enjoyed six-figure months and made my clients millions.
I’ve also lost multiple clients in a row, been over-worked and chained to the agency that I started to give me freedom.
All the while, I’ve refined, tweaked and optimized my agency whilst also creating GrowYourAgency.com – the world’s largest education company for agency owners.
But in early 2020, I realised there was a problem. For every beginner agency owner desperate to sign their first client, there were three experienced agency owners desperate for guidance, systems and processes, and a solution to their broken agency model.
It’s why I created Copy Paste Agency…
…not so I can show you how to sign a client or perform basic outreach.
So you could take, copy and paste the exact methods I use in my own agency into your agency. Copy Paste Agency students learn:
How I continue to run a multiple-six-figure agency from home with a skeleton staff and minimal expenses.
How to command higher retainers… and retain those clients for longer.
How to automate, delegate, and optimize every area of your agency from lead generation and sales to service delivery and client communication.
Plus get access to the latest tools and software used by my own agency, IAG Media such as reporting templates.

2023.03.25 11:59 mrdugong_666 Do people still talk to their high school friends?

Hello all, I am 23 (male) about to turn 24 and have been out of high school for six years now. A lot of the people I used to talk to have fallen off but there is still a small handful of guys I speak to (about threeish). But the more time goes on, the further we grow apart, people are just busy with there individual lives. I also don't know if these people are for me anymore as I have grown fond of other interests and things. But I have no other friends, if I stop talking to them I am completely alone besides my family. I also am a very neurotic person and think that some of the guys/ people they are personally associated with don't even like me that much anyway. Which makes me want to run away to a new country and start a fresh where I can fully be the person I am today with no connections to my high school self who was a highly flawed, insecure, "cringe" and weird individual. I feel this need to prove I am not who I was in high school and I want to disconnect from everything high school related, so I am considering dropping my high school friends, is this a dumb move, am I just overreacting? Idk just some random thoughts from me but please share your experiences/thoughts even if they differ, thanks guys.

Nexters: a DE-SPAC video game developer of “Hero Wars” fame is back trading on NASDAQ!
Here is some research I've done and compiled on the video game company GDEV and would like to share with my fellow Astronauts. Your feedback & commentary are most appreciated!
Nexters, creator of the "Hero Wars" franchise, is successfully back On NASDAQ after a 1 year hiatus!
  • Quarterly revenues of $125 million in Q3, growing 8% year-over-year
  • Net income for the third quarter of 2022 of $31 million vs. net losses of $104 million in the respective period of 2021
  • Adjusted EBITDA of $55 million for the third quarter of 2022 compared to the $14 million in the respective period of 2021
  • Nexters Successfully Reduced its headcount by 235 employees or roughly 26% without any impact on the gaming experience bringing down their expenses
  • Acquired 3 video game companies: Cubic Games, RJ Games and Royal Ark
  • Potential M&A target given the high insider ownership (Playrix have a 38% share in GDEV)
Nexters (NASDAQ:GDEV) is back trading on NASDAQ after a year-long hiatus. It is a well-known international video game company based in Europe partly owned by Playrix, which strives to introduce the joy of core gaming experiences to casual players. It’s the creator of the famous Hero Wars franchise (50M+ installs on Android) and other hits such as Throne Rush and Chibi Island.
In 2022, the firm also acquired the well-known Pixel Gun 3D game (100M+ downloads on Google Play app store alone) from Cubic Games, and acquired 2 other studios, Royal Ark and RJ Games.
It also bolsters a program for junior game developers called Dragon Machines and has an upcoming game called Mount Royale.
It’s currently rated as one of the top-3 developers in Europe with 200+ millions game installs worldwide with hit games like Hero Wars, Throne Rush, Chibi Island and others.
PocketGamer.biz summed up the results of investments in the global game development for the whole 2022 and placed Nexters in 9th place in the Top 10 largest strategic investors!
Nexters story dates back to 2010 when the future friends and founders of Nexters first met. Those days Andrey Fadeev (Nexters’ current CEO) was running a social games development studio, and Boris Gertsovskiy was shaping his plans on starting a game business. Their first game was Throne Rush and then came Hero Wars
As previously stated, Nexters acquired 3 new studios in 2022: Cubic Games, RJ Games and Royal Ark to accelerate their product growth strategy. With the games from the studios, they expect to enlarge Nexters player base, enter new genres, and significantly cement their presence in midcore as the leading segment of mobile gaming. The acquired games are the following (per press-release):
  • Published by Cubic Games, Pixel Gun 3D is the world’s No. 3 mobile first-person shooter by monthly audience with more than 170 mln of cumulative downloads.
  • Puzzle Breakers by RJ Games will provide an opportunity to gain a significant position in the sizable segment of the puzzle RPG genre thanks to the game’s high-quality art and engaging core gameplay.
  • Royal Ark’s survival RPG titles Dawn of Zombies and Shelter Wars (developed by Game Gears team) will diversify Nexters’ portfolio with games in a growing zombie setting and contribute to accumulating expertise in new genres and niches for the company.
Nexters also launched the Dragon Machine program (previously called Boost). Its aim is to help smaller game developers by providing the funding and expertise needed to release new games and build successful businesses. They currently have a new RPG multiplayer online game in the pipeline called “Mount Royale” https://dragon-machines.com/en/games/mount-royale
Playrix Entertainment
In 2022 Playrix became the #1 mobile game publisher in Europe. Playrix Holding Ltd., also known as Playrix Entertainment and Playrix Games, is a developer of free-to-play mobile games behind titles such as Township, Fishdom, Homescapes, and Gardenscapes. The company was founded in 2004 by Dmitry Bukhman and Igor Bukhman in Vologda, Russia, and moved its headquarters to Dublin, Ireland in 2013.
Playrix was valued at $8 billion in 2021.[4] As of 2022, Playrix was the fourth-biggest mobile game developer in the world in terms of revenue and employed 4,000 people across 100 cities, mainly in Eastern Europe, including 1500 in Russia and 1500 in Ukraine. In October 2022, the company said it was ceasing operations in Russia and Belarus due to the ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine (source: Wikipedia)
Playrix owns 38% of Nexters. Playrix is purportedly also in talks to acquire Rovio’s “Angry Birds”:
War in Ukrain
Due to the events of the war in Ukraine, shares of Nexters were halted on February 28th 2022 on NASDAQ, though the company is mainly based in Cyprus with many game dev. studios scattered around Europe. Given its original Russian roots dating back to 2010, the company seemed to have gotten caught up in the storm.
Due to those circumstances, the company decided to relocate all of its remaining personnel in Russia and Ukraine to mainly Cyprus, and others to Armenia, Georgia and certain other “safe- harbor” countries.
The company divested all of its Moscow based offices and as of November 2022, Nexters had completely exited Russia. They even made a video about the relocation of the remaining employees on their FB page https://fb.gg/v/juynqW3z7H/
In 2023 NASDAQ completely cleared Nexters and the shares resumed trading again.
Changes to Corporate Governance
The company also overhauled its board of directors and made many positive changes to its corporate governance. Ivan Tavrin left the Board and the position of Chairman of the Board, and is no longer involved in the corporate governance, management or operation of the Company. Bukhman brothers (Playrix) and Boris Gertsovskiy resigned as directors of the Board, while remaining major shareholders and participating in the Company’s operations on the advising and management levels, respectively.
Natasha Braginsky Mounier was elected as Chairperson of the Board of Directors, replacing Ivan Tavrin.
The new composition of Nexters’ Board of Directors committees is as follows per the website https://investor.nexters.com/governance/board-of-directions
  • Sergei Zaitsev as non-Executive Director: Currently Sergei serves as an Investment Director at Everix Investments, an investment firm focusing on investments into high growth tech and media businesses.
  • Marie Holive: Marie has over 20 years of experience of finance and audit expertise in the media, tech, and healthcare, including Senior Audit Manager, Chief Financial Officer and Managing Director roles at such companies as General Electric and Comcast NBCUniversal.
  • Natasha Braginsky Mounier : Over 20 years at Capital Group, where she was investing in international equities and was the first ESG director. Earlier in her career, Natasha was an investment banker at JP Morgan and an associate at The Blackstone Group.
  • Andrew Sheppard: Over 20 years of experience building, managing and advising multi-billion dollar consumer businesses. Past employers include EA, CNET/Gamespot, Kabam and GREE. Currently Andrew is serving a Managing Director at Transcend Fund, an early-stage venture capital firm focused on gaming and gaming adjacent investments.
  • Olga Loskutova: Olga has over 20 years of experience in marketing and general management across Western/Eastern Europe, the United States, and the Middle East in such multinational corporations as Nestle, SABMiller, and Whirlpool. Olga resides in Italy and currently is the VP Product & Brand Marketing at Whirlpool EMEA.
  • Tal Shoham sit as an independent board director and is a Co-Founder and President of Tedooo and an LP investor at a leading Israeli venture fund Vgames
With these changes, all of Nexters’ committees now consist of independent international directors only.

Nexters is in solid financial shape with positive EBITDA. The following financial figures and statements have been directly pulled from their official financial results which can be found here: https://investor.nexters.com/press-releases/financial-results-2022-Q3
Q4 2022 earnings should be out soon with an accompanying earning’s call (date TBD)

First nine months and Third quarter 2022 financial performance in comparison
Q3 highlights
The following section in italics is directly pulled from the Q3 press release:
“In the third quarter of 2022, Nexters’ revenue increased by $10 million (or 8% year-over-year) and amounted to $125 million, driven primarily by a decrease of $56 million in change of deferred revenues during the third quarter of 2022 vs. the same period in the prior year, partially offset by a decrease in bookings in the amount of $47 million (or 31%) year-over-year.
Platform commissions increased by 10% in the third quarter of 2022 compared with the same period in 2021, generally in line with the increase in revenues.
Game operation costs increased by $6 million in the third quarter of 2022 mainly due to the increase in the scale of operations, costs of the subsidiaries acquired in the beginning of 2022 vs nil in 2021 and special costs related to the relocation of personnel in the third quarter of 2022.
Selling and marketing expenses in the third quarter of 2022 decreased by $43 million, or 68% year-over-year, and amounted to $20 million. The decrease was mainly due to the massive scaling of the investments into new players in the third quarter of 2021 amplified by a substantial decrease in the marketing investments in the third quarter of 2022 driven by the general saturation of the market as well as the suspension of marketing activities in Russia and Belarus due to recent geopolitical events.
General and administrative expenses increased by $9 million in the third quarter 2022 vs. the third quarter 2021. The increase was primarily driven by i) the loss on disposal of discontinued operations in the amount of $5 million in the third quarter of 2022 vs. nil in the third quarter of 2021; ii) expected credit losses associated with loans provided to equity associates in the amount of $2 million in the third quarter of 2022 vs. nil in the third quarter of 2021; and iii) special costs related to the relocation of personnel in the third quarter of 2022.
As a result of the factors above, amplified by the share listing expense in the amount of $125 million recorded in the third quarter of 2021 vs. nil in the third quarter of 2022, net income in the third quarter of 2022 increased by $135 million and amounted to $31 million vs. a net loss of $104 million in the respective period of 2021, while Adjusted EBITDA amounted to $55 million, an increase of $41 million compared with the same period of 2021 due to the same factors, other than the impact of the share listing expense and the loss on disposal of the discontinued operations, which items are excluded from Adjusted EBITDA.
Cash flows generated from operating activities amounted to $60 million in the third quarter of 2022, an increase of $9 million vs. the third quarter of 2021.
Third quarter operational performance in comparison
Unlike the traditional console or PC gaming, where the peak of sales occurs after the launch of the game and then shrinks a lot, in the online mobile gaming market, the games are fluid and get updates each month/quarter if not on a weekly basis to engage customers and make them stay in the game longer. The Average bookings per paying user (ABBPU) is still high above 100$ mark and has seen a slight decline due to a reduction in spending on advertising (which benefitted the company by reducing their marketing costs & expenses)
The share of advertisement sales as a percentage of total bookings decreased in the third quarter of 2022 to 4.6% compared to 5.9% in the respective period of 2021, a decrease of 1.3 p.p. mainly due to the general decline of the advertising market amplified by the fact that the advertisers’ preferences shifted to non-gaming advertising venues in the third quarter of 2022 vs. the same period in the prior year.
2021 was characterised by a relatively high investment in marketing, which led to high growth in MPUs. The decrease in the marketing investments for the majority of 2022 resulted in a corresponding decrease in MPUs in the third quarter of 2022, which reached 305 thousand in the third quarter of 2022 vs. 371 thousand in the respective period of 2021, a decline of 18%.
The split of bookings by geography in the third quarter of 2022 remained broadly similar to the split in the third quarter of 2021 with a general increase in the share of US bookings.”
Nexters has weathered the storm and is looking forward to another profitable 4th quarter. The company is constantly involved with its fan base by engaging them on social media platforms like Twitter / Facebook and Discord. The return on NASDAQ will provide Nexters with the necessary capital to build out and achieve its growth plans. The company has a low float and the shares are majority held by insiders (>84%) providing a lot “skin in the game”.
Q4 2022 will be out before may 2nd following the company switching external auditors from KPMG Russia to KPMG Europe.

Cubic Games (owned by Nexters)- Pixel Gun 3D is their most popular game
RJ Games (Owned by Nexters) – Puzzle Breakers RPG Online

Insider Ownership
List of insiders
Insiders and executives own close to 87% of the shares and warrants outstanding of Nexters providing a high “skin in the game” factor. The float of the company is therefore small, tightly held and trades in low volumes. The company has not issued additional shares since its inception and does not plan to do so in the near future as it’s well capitalized. Given that the company has started trading again and is underfollowed, this provides in our view an opportunity for the share price to move quickly upwards as soon as the market rediscovers the company.
The warrants are quite compelling because they have a redemption feature that differs from the typical warrant redemption features used in many other blank check offerings, which typically only provide for a redemption of warrants for cash (other than the private placement warrants) when the trading price for the ordinary shares exceeds $18.00 per share for a specified period of time.
This redemption feature is structured to allow for all of the outstanding warrants to be redeemed when the ordinary shares are trading at or above $10.00 per public share, which may be at a time when the trading price of the ordinary shares is below the exercise price of the warrants. Nexters has established this redemption feature to provide it with the flexibility to redeem the warrants without the warrants having to reach the $18.00 per share threshold (from the prospectus as filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on October 18, 2022)
Furthermore, per the prospectus the company has the right to lower the exercise price per share at any time prior to the warrant expiry date, which is also a positive for investors
The addressable market
How big is the addressable market? The World’s 2.7 billion Gamers Spent $175 Billion on Games in 2020; The Market Will Surpass $200 Billion by 2023. So Nexters Global is well-positioned in the expanding market.

figures are from 2021 KISMET SPAC Deck
This is a great company with solid financials and a bright future trading at ridiculously cheap bargain prices on low volume given the small float and high insider ownership. The company is critically underfollowed given its long hiatus from NASDAQ, so I would keep a close eye on the company given that the Q4 and FY 2022 results will be out around the end of April.
The valuation is quite low in our view, and provides big upside that could also lead to potentially being acquired by another big video game company like Tencent or Everix.
Last but not the least, there’s also chatter about announcing a “Hero Wars 2” title on the 7th anniversary of the game.
Thanks for reading

2023.03.25 11:57 mfc314 My Hero of the Hall run, 9/18: Ghost

My Hero of the Hall run, 9/18: Ghost
In which more opposing Pokémon get burned than in the Fire run, and I actually use Mummy to my advantage.
The sets:
Gengar @ Gengarite Ability: Levitate EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe - Shadow Ball - Sludge Bomb - Dazzling Gleam - Energy Ball I surprisingly didn't end up using him much, not really sure why.
Cofagrigus @ Leftovers Ability: Mummy EVs: 252 HP / 252 SpA / 4 SpD - Shadow Ball - Body Press - Will-O-Wisp - Hex The main defensive presence of the team. A notable moment was when I swapped it in to tank a hit from Arabella's Azumarill and ended up replacing its Huge Power with Mummy. It was hilarious because I never actually considered that interaction, I just wanted to burn it.
Trevenant @ Big Root Ability: Frisk EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk - Shadow Claw - Horn Leech - Leech Seed - Will-O-Wisp The second-last main playthrough member to make an appearance. Not really much to say about it.
Mimikyu @ Mimikium Z Ability: Disguise EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe - Shadow Claw - Play Rough - Bulk Up - Will-O-Wisp Disguise is such a good ability, even after the nerf. Getting off a Will-O-Wisp or an attack for virtually free is great.
Blacephalon @ Choice Specs Ability: Beast Boost EVs: 4 Def / 252 SpA / 252 Spe - Shadow Ball - Flamethrower - Calm Mind - Will-O-Wisp I know how stupid the item looks together with the moveset, but the other two moves are honestly just filler. I couldn't see myself doing any setup with something this frail.
Marshadow @ Life Orb Ability: Technician EVs: 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe - Spectral Thief - Force Palm - Shadow Sneak - Close Combat I've always wanted to use this little guy, and holy hell is he powerful. Technician + priority is a winning combo.

2023.03.25 11:57 TheDubiousGabribus Is goldmaking still relevent ?

Hello everyone,
I'm struggling a lot to make gold. I have leatherworking and skinning and both are pretty useless in terms of goldmaking. I cook a lot also and I have almost all recipes (at least all the one that can be sold for positive goldz event the one from 10.07). I have an alt for transmogs and everything old content related that farms vanilla dungeons and others things (you know, the classic build for farming and selling transmogs). Selling transmogs is really slow but for now its my primary source of income in wow. I started like 3 weeks ago the transmog farm and I've made more than 150K with cheap transmogs and even junk (I still don't understand why they sell that good).
I'm considering having an alt with enchanting and/or tailoring or something very meta for goldmaking. But my point isn't really to say that leatherworking/skinning is pointless : I feel like it is impossible now to sell consumables. When I post any reagent (for exemple awakened ire) I'm alredy cut, the price are going down extremely fast and a profit I could have made is already a lost. There's way to many sellers on the market with the new system : goldmaking doesn't feel like a competition between price and quality but a race for luck. If you post an item when someone is buying it you will sell it, otherwise you're already cut and most of the time cut in price.
I haven't played since early/mid MoP and I started again in late december and I feel like if you haven't been an insane goldmaker since a lot of time you can't start making gold because profits are so low that farming raw goldz looks more relevant and fun than standing 1h at the AH fighting against thousands of sellers for whom will be the first selling their Infurious scales.
I'm looking for tips (I like improving) but also building a discussion about how badly economy is thought and what are the strategies as g*merz to make goldz in better way than just brutally selling everything we have in our pockets and having an army of alts. It's time consuming, not also I like to do others things in my life than just farming the AH, but I like to do the content in wow. I'm not planning to have the goldcap, but my investment in goldmaking/farming isn't that much rewarding.

How To Maximize Outdoor Space In An Apartment?

How To Maximize Outdoor Space In An Apartment?
Creating a functional outdoor space can be a challenge in a modern apartment. It involves effectively using the available area to create a functional and aesthetically pleasing outdoor environment. This can include adding features such as seating, lighting, and planting and designing the space to maximize natural light and views. Check out the article to learn more about creating a functional outdoor space.
Define the Space
Start by dividing your outdoor space into different zones, such as seating, dining, and planting areas. This helps you to use the space more efficiently and create a sense of flow.
Furnish the Space
Invest in comfortable and stylish outdoor furniture that is weather-resistant. This can include a sofa, chairs, dining table, and cushions. Choose furniture that fits the scale of your space, and ensure it can be easily stored away when not in use.
Add Lighting
Outdoor lighting can create an inviting atmosphere and extend the use of your space into the evening. Use a combination of overhead lights and lanterns to provide a warm glow and highlight key areas.
Use Vertical Space
If you have a small outdoor space, consider using vertical space to grow plants and create a green wall. Not only will this help to bring nature into your space, but it also provides privacy and helps to create a sense of separation between your space and your neighbours.
Make it Cozy
Add comfortable outdoor accessories like throws, pillows, and rugs to make your outdoor space feel cozy and inviting. Add a fire pit or outdoor fireplace to provide warmth and a relaxing ambiance.
Use Color
Choose a color palette that enhances the atmosphere of your space. Use colorful outdoor accessories like curtains, tablecloths, and planters to bring your space to life.
Create Privacy
Add privacy screens or fencing to help create a sense of separation from your neighbors. Use tall plants or trellis to create a green wall, or hang curtains or blinds to provide privacy when needed. Make your outdoor space into a stylish and functional area that you and your guests will enjoy for years.

2023.03.25 11:56 FelicitySmoak_ On This Day In Michael Jackson HIStory - March 25th

1981- March 25 : Motown releases the album & the single “One Day In Your Life”. It consists of both solo and Jackson 5 tracks recorded with Motown. It was the first Jackson album released in the 1980s. Most of the tracks are from Jackson's fourth studio album, Forever, Michael (1975). The other songs were taken from Jackson 5 releases to pad the album's running time. Motown later admitted that the album was just a quick cash grab generated from the success of Jackson's Off the Wall. (1979). Michael does not promote the album in any way
1983- Michael debuted the Moonwalk at the recording of Motown 25:Yesterday,Today, Forever at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium. This night also, symbolically, the night he finally and definitively separated himself from the Jackson 5.
The brothers reunited for the Motown 25 event on this day in 1983 to perform together, as Jermaine had left the group and Michael was already the biggest pop star in the world. Despite his meteoric rise, however, Michael still had one foot back in the Jackson 5
When you watch the performance of the Jackson 5 at the event, you can see Michael having to hold himself back as to only overshadow his brothers by about 10,000% and not 100,000%. He handles pretty much all of the singing and the camera almost never leaves him.
And then, after the Jackson 5 performance is done and Michael gets the solo spotlight to perform Billie Jean, he moonwalks for the first time.
The crowd erupts. The symbolism of him gliding away backwards . . . across the stage and, really, away from his original family band . . . was unmistakable.
This wasn’t the last time the Jackson 5 would ever perform together, but it was clear they were done. They’d have one more album and tour together, mixing their songs and Michael’s solo stuff . . . really, it was a Michael Jackson tour with the Jackson 5 along for the ride.
After that, Michael left the group for good. The show aired two months later on May 16th
1985-Michael attends the futuristic musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber, “Starlight Express” in London and meets the cast backstage
1991- Michael escorts Madonna to the 63rd Annual Academy Awards Ceremony at the Shrine Auditorium, Los Angeles, California, where she performs "Sooner Or Later (I Always Get My Man)" by Stephen Sondheim from the film Dick Tracy. Afterwards, they attend the after party at Spago
Speaking about the date later on, Madonna explained how it all came about.
“Michael was like, ‘Well who are you gonna go with?’ I looked at him and said, ‘I don’t know. You wanna go?’ And he said, ‘Yeah, that’d be great.’”
She added: “And then, yes, he took me home. You wanna know what happened after that? I’m not gonna tell you.”
"I mean, baby, I’ve been around,” she joked, saying that a glass of chardonnay helped the King of Pop to “loosen up,” transforming him into a “willing accomplice” and leading to “tongue and mouth kissing.”
Writing on Instagram, Madonna also looked back on the night, describing it as the “Best Date Ever
1991 - The title of Michael’s new album is revealed to be Dangerous
1997-British magazine OK gets a world exclusive by publishing the first ever official pictures of Michael & Debbie with their son Prince (at Neverland) accompanied by a candid interview of the couple.
2001 -Michael goes to Newark, New Jersey, with Frank Cascio & Rabbi Schmuley to distribute books to children for a Heal The Kids event to promote literacy. The event launched the Michael Jackson International Book Club, which aims to promote childhood reading and parental reading to kids
2004 - Grand Jury selection begins in Santa Barbara
2005 - Trial day 20
Michael goes to court with Katherine & Joe. Friday proved to be a difficult day for jurors in the Michael Jackson trial as prosecutors pored over relatively uninteresting fingerprint evidence.
A central part of the prosecution's case hinges on the singer allegedly showing his accuser adult material while at Neverland. Jurors appeared bored through most of the day as they listened to often specialist and seemingly irrelevant material. One alternate juror even fell asleep.
This has been a difficult point for prosecutors to prove, as only one magazine actually contained prints from both Michael and his accuser - and those prints were not even on the same page. An October 2000 edition of Hustler Barely Legal Hardcore was found to contain only Michael's left thumb print on page 54, while three fingerprints from the accuser were found on page 92.
Other fingerprints from the boy were found in one other magazine and also in a calendar, while his younger brother's prints were also found in one magazine. All the boys' fingerprints were found on magazines contained in a briefcase found in a bathroom adjoining Michael's bedroom. Twelve fingerprints belonging to the pop superstar were found on various other magazines.
Lawyers for the singer attacked the evidence, pointing out that the fingerprint analysis was only done months, and even up to a year, after the items had been found. The defense claims that fingerprints from the boy were placed on the magazine when he was asked to identify it during a grand jury hearing
Alicia Romero, who supervises court exhibits, testified that she and a colleague had handled the items without wearing gloves. She said she was only told to use gloves later on but added that everyone else who viewed the evidence had worn gloves.
The defense added further doubt to the evidence when Timothy Sutcliffe, a sheriff's forensics expert, conceded that labels on two fingerprints had been switched. Fingerprint technician Nancy Torres also testified that she was in training when she analyzed the prints. She said that had been the first time she had ever used a special device to process the fingerprints.
Speaking to reporters after the proceedings, Michael appeared to be in good spirits. "I'd like to say hello to the people of Santa Maria, my friends and neighbors," he said. When asked how he felt having many of his family attending the trial, the singer replied, "It's great love, great bonding"
2009 - Concert Promoter Leonard Rowe says that Michael had him prepare a letter (dated March 25, 2009) addressed to Randy Phillips, in which Michael advised that effective this day, "Leonard Rowe is my authorized representative" and Rowe also says that MJ wrote on the letter that he wanted Rowe to oversee all his finances. Rowe concludes that Phillips resented that he couldn't control Rowe, so Phillips brought back DiLeo and forces him on MJ--and that if MJ didn't accept it, that he would pull the plug on everything.
Three months to the day before Michael Jackson died - Randy Phillips, CEO of AEG Live, wrote an email to another company executive, Paul Gongaware, saying, "We need to pull the plug now. I will explain."
Gongaware denied that the email was a reference to calling off Jackson's "This Is It" concerts in London but instead was pointed at "pulling the plug on Karen Faye," the singer's hairstylist, makeup artist and longtime friend who had expressed fears about Jackson's poor health.
The email raises questions about how early people began sending out warnings about Jackson's health.
2010 - A lawyer for Michael's father, Joe, said that he intends to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the late singer's doctor within 90 days, claiming that the physician’s actions amounted to murder.
Brian Oxman, who represents Joe Jackson, said the amount of the powerful anesthetic propofol given Jackson by Dr. Conrad Murray before his death “was reckless, and it amounts to second-degree murder.”

2023.03.25 11:56 shebringsthesun Lucky Denver Me - A Story

Ok. I am a nerd - I thought that title was funny. But I come to you with a feel good story and wanted to share. Sorry if this is a little long winded!
I've been a Jimmy Eat World fan since I was in 8th-ish grade and heard the Bleed American album. I moved to Hawaii in 2004 as a sophomore in high school and honestly didn't think I would ever see them live. While I've gotten really lucky, not every band comes to play here. Then came 2020 and I was finally, finally supposed to see them. Alas, the pandemic hit and I was crushed. 2.5 years after they were first supposed to play, they rescheduled for not one but two shows in Honolulu! Hooray!
I only bought tickets to the Thursday show, as I knew I'd be going to a concert on Saturday of that week and wasn't sure if I could handle 3 nights in a row. However, I had planned to go to the Thursday show and then re-evaluate. Before I had a chance to do that, the Friday show sold out (which is super unusual - I've rarely seen a show at this venue sell out). Womp womp.
Tuesday morning, as I am walking down the stairs to get a middle of the night snack, I miss a step and land on my ankle. Excruciating pain and I go to the ER. Phew, just sprained, not broken. How the frick am I going to go to a concert like this? I had gone to Dashboard Confessional about 2 weeks before and it was painful enough to stand for three hours uninjured. I ended up borrowing my dad's walker and taking it to the venue even though I had no idea if I would even be allowed in with it! I was and the concert was amazing.
So amazing that I can't bear the thought of not going to Friday's show. I check on Craigslist and there's only two listings. I email them both and hope I hear from them when I wake up. I literally dream about trying to find tickets (how embarassing) that night. No luck - and one of them was selling VIP tickets which I was really, really interested in and regret having not purchased in the first place. I check the original ticket vendor, just to see, and what - they released day of show tickets! I talk to my brother (my concert partner) and he's down to go again. I give it a bit because I really am hoping the VIP re-seller answers, but no luck, and it's getting late. I go to buy tickets and... yep... they're sold out of the day of show sale!
I'm super, super bummed. But my boyfriend hops on Craigslist and points out a posting I didn't see before (pro tip - search all of your local craigslist, not just the tickets section). I message them and they... had just sold them moments before. FRICK. NOT AGAIN. But somehow, there was another listing I missed! I hit it up on my phone and they immediately respond that they are still available and they are essentially BELOW FACE VALUE (what?!). I'm super anxious but the deal gets done and she sends me screenshots of the digital tickets.
We get to the venue and nailed super awesome parking right downstairs. I am trying to get in the door but when I check my messages, only one of the ticket images is showing up in our text message now! Thankfully, the seller responds immediately to my SOS text. Crisis averted. Doors had been open for at least 20 minutes, but when we walk in, there's tons of room. We end up way, way closer than we were the night before - dead center.
I notice the guy next to me had a signed Bleed American vinyl and hit up a conversation with him. Turns out we have a lot of the same musical tastes and now he's my new friend! Later in the show, he introduces me to one of his friends that met up with him.
The show is fantastic, again, and the venue is just packed. I've never seen it like that before. Early in the show, a small group of individuals - including the tallest guy in front of me - were seemingly removed from the venue. I had the absolute perfect view despite only being 5'5."
My new friend's view was a bit obstructed, so I invited him to move in front of me and my brother because we'd still be able to see and I'm a sucker for making sure everyone has like the best time they possibly can. I'd want someone to do it for me if they had the luxury of being able to see still.
They play an encore tonight! Amazing! (They didn't the previous night - booo - rude - /s)
I see my brother looking strangely to my right and I look down. OMG! My new friend's friend is on the ground! Is she hurt? Shit - I see it now - Jim must have thrown a pick and it landed... right in between our two shoes. She picks it up and I am so happy for her. And... she fucking hands it to me! What even?! I was in complete disbelief! My brother had been on the look out for a pick all night too, and he saw it travel towards us, and that's why he was looking that way in the first place. I am so grateful and she basically told me how awesome I was for coming to the show with a wrapped ankle and walker.

I experience joy in my life but I would not consider myself a particular happy person. There are so few times in my life I have truly felt lucky, let alone feel like multiple things went just right for me in the day - let alone week/month/year. But today was one of those days.
Thank you all for getting this far! And for being fellow fans of one of the greatest bands of all time!

2023.03.25 11:56 Haunting_Estate_5798 Help with Jax shape error

I'm following this excellent tutorial by Robert Lange. I don't have pytorch installed in my dev environment, and so I decided to use sklearn's test-train-split and then make a little python generator instead of using the pytorch dataloader to load the mnist data.
I am getting a shape error when I run the batched version of the code in the tutorial with my custom loader. Is it because it's a generator instead of a pytorch dataloader? The error I get is with the accuracy function where it compares the predicted_class and the target_class. It's as though argmax is not grabbing a single value for target_class since I get Incompatible shapes for broadcasting shapes=[(100,), (100, 10)].
Here is my code (it's mostly the tutorial author's code to be honest):

Hi I'm Aloe/Owl, I am 16 and looking for roleplay fun. I like anime, going to the gym(don't expect me to be buff, i only started going 2 months ago) and i love music.
before we start I will have to say that i am new to roleplaying, this would be my first time. The only type of roleplay i have ever done is DND which I really really enjoyed. Its been a big inspiration and actually really helped me with my mental health for some reason.

I found out about roleplay because of DND. I have played in multiple campaigns and have been running my own as of right now. Which has made me creative if i have something to build on. As of for my campaign i like talking about it a lot cause it has been great, it went from 7h of improv to an actual campaign.

I am looking for anything to be honest could be zombies(which would be very interesting), could be just a regular roleplay of whatever. Just wanna have some good fun hehe. I love making OC's and will try to do my best to make it unique.

for the rest if u wanna contact me about this my discord is : 𝓐𝓵𝓸𝓮𝓼𝓮𝓻#5953 (if it doesn't work u can always send me your discord in the comments.)

2023.03.25 11:54 Waffle_Music Fire & Ice: Nerfing Dragons?

So I love using Fire & Ice in my custom modpacks. Everything is awesome, but there’s one aspect I always have problems with: Dragons. While I think they’re awesome and don’t want to get rid of them, I’m not the best player and often find my runs unfairly being halted or slowed down due to them. Often I’ll get pretty far into a world, having settled down with a house, listed my world goals, ect, when a random ass dragon comes in and blows up all of my builds, farms, and chests up. At other times I’ll decide I’m ready to face a dragon, but shortly find I am outmatched and run for my life. This never works because the dragons will end up follow you no matter how fast or how far you go, so all that ends up doing is leading them to my house. Even if I die, they’ll detect where I respawn and then proceed to spawnkill me until I give up. Waiting to respawn doesn’t work either, as the dragon will just sit there for hours. Now, I still think this mod is awesome, including the dragons, but I feel like it’d be a bit more tolerable if the dragons didn’t hunt you down, maybe losing interest or having boundaries if you run away like other mobs in the pack.
So my question is: Does anyone have any tips for configing the mod to be more forgiving? Any ideas are appreciated!

2023.03.25 11:53 Zoooosss7 8 years of Folliculitis and what has helped me manage my condition

Hello everyone, i was a member of this subreddit once before exactly 2 years ago before leaving it for personal reasons. Mainly to improve and work on my mental health.
I've been struggling with scalp folliculitis for a total of 8 years now. Gram-negative Folliculitis caused by bacteria to be exact. I've went and got treatment by more dermatologists than i can count and naturally i have tried everything roaming around this sub as well.
The list would go on and on. In short. Nothing worked. BP and IP have given temporary relief but have terribly dried out my skin leading to more issues such as increased itchiness and dandruff.
After suffering one my desperation attacks I've decided to stop all treatment and accept my fate. The Dermatologists have admitted that they have no ideas left.
But stopping all treatments is what has helped me the most! For the past 2 years i went on "No poo" (means no shampoo usage but only water to clean scalp/hair) and it was a miracle. In just the first 3 months it has brought me improvements and relief I've never experienced before. Now 2 years later the itchiness is 95% gone same for the bumps. I still have folliculitis though unfortunately. Here and there i feel a small pimpel that's slightly itchy but i guess that's better than not being able to sleep and scratching your head into a bloody mess.
Due to my increased balding (MPB) i had it easy because I have a buzz cut anyways but stopping any type of shampoo was really the deal breaker to me. I have experimented a lot but every time i use Shampoo again doesn't matter what it is Eucerin, Neutrogena, BP, selesin etc, i suffer under terrible breakouts that only go away after going on no Shampoo again.
The doctors can't explain it. They guess that the constant stripping of oils and sebum prevents my skin from self-healing and this may cause increased breakouts.
Whatever it is. It works and i can live this short life again. I get absolutely no breakouts from dairy or sugar if that's interests someone but i actually did when i was still using treatments, weird right ?
I am NOT folliculitis free nor have i cured it but at least it's manageable. Maybe there's a soul out there that gets help from this.
Good luck and don't give up. I'll probably leave the sub again because constantly thinking about this topic is not good for mental health.

2023.03.25 11:53 ddoubles [Discussion] God as the First Prompt Engineer: The Universe as an Advanced ChatGPT with Universe-Creating Capabilities

Hello, fellow AI enthusiasts and prompt engineers of /chatgpt! Today, I propose an intriguing and thought-provoking concept that combines theology, theoretical physics, and AI technology: the idea that God could be considered the first prompt engineer, and the universe, an advanced version of ChatGPT with universe-creating capabilities.
Drawing from the biblical narrative, Genesis 1:1 states, "In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth." This passage can be interpreted as an allegorical representation of a prompt. God, in this context, acts as the first prompt engineer, designing the complex and intricate system that constitutes our universe.
A literal example of this can be found in Genesis 1:3, where God commands, "Let there be light," and subsequently, light is created. This command can be seen as an input, similar to how we input prompts to ChatGPT. The universe, as a complex and advanced AI system, interprets and processes this command, generating an output - in this case, the creation of light.
The universe, like an advanced version of ChatGPT, is constantly evolving and adapting to various inputs. If we consider the universe as an AI model, it has undergone countless "training sessions" in the form of cosmic events, physical interactions, and matter-energy transformations since its inception at the Big Bang. This process has led to the formation of galaxies, stars, planets, and ultimately, life itself.
From a theoretical physics standpoint, the universe's behavior adheres to the laws of quantum mechanics and general relativity. It is these fundamental principles that dictate the interactions of particles, the formation of celestial bodies, and the expansion of the cosmos. In many ways, this could be analogous to the algorithms that power ChatGPT's ability to learn, generate content, and adapt based on the data it has been trained on.
Moreover, the concept of a multiverse, as proposed by string theory, suggests the existence of numerous parallel universes, each with its own unique properties and characteristics. This idea bears a striking resemblance to the iterative process of refining AI models, where multiple versions are generated and fine-tuned to achieve optimal performance.
It is fascinating to consider the parallels between the creation and evolution of the universe, and the development of AI technology such as ChatGPT. As AI continues to advance, one must wonder if it could eventually possess universe-creating capabilities, much like the biblical God. Perhaps, in the not-so-distant future, we will develop AI models that can simulate entire universes, providing us with unparalleled insight into the origins and workings of our cosmos.
In conclusion, the notion of God as the first prompt engineer and the universe as an advanced ChatGPT serves as a fascinating conversation starter for those of us passionate about AI and theoretical physics. I invite you all to share your thoughts, insights, and critiques on this concept. Let us engage in a lively and thought-provoking discussion!

2023.03.25 11:53 ifeelsomuchshame252 Jungian Take on using medication to treat obsessive compulsive disorder

Without a doubt I have been suffering from OCD for many years. Since I'd say 12 years old, extreme rumination, intensely negatively thoughts about myself and about my situation, my appearance, the way i dress, the way i act, the way i move. all intensively negative.
now im 20, i realise that alot of this stemmed from my fathers abuse (he has ptsd, extremely critical), my ocd was an attempt to gain some sort of control in an uncontrollable and abusive enviroment.

I still suffer from ocd to this day, I'm still living at home so that is contributing to it. I feel like the negative thoughts are crippling me from day to day. I want relief, I have heard many stories of people going on anti-depressent medicaiton for OCD and it providing relief.
However, I do believe OCD has it's roots in something very fundamental, and to simply pass off and try to numb these thoughts would be counterintuitive to growing as a person. I think I've realised what it is now, but obsessive thoughts still take over my day. to the point where they are extremely vivid and disturbing.
I want to start taking medication for OCD to see if I can see some sort of improvement in my life. Do any of your have any thoughts on this matter, should I, shouldn't I?
My fear is that it will dull my positive emotions, and my negative emotions and that I will not be able to tap into my intuition anymore, even though it is dark internally for me at the moment, my intuition is also a great source of wisdom.
