2023.03.22 13:13 MiraclesToday Wednesday, March 22, 2023 Non Real-Time Meeting of OA

Welcome to this non-real time meeting of Overeaters Anonymous! I’m MiraclesToday. I’m a compulsive eater and your leader for this meeting. Will those who wish, please join me in the Serenity Prayer: God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and wisdom to know the difference.
Overeaters Anonymous is a Fellowship of individuals who, through shared experience, strength, and hope, are recovering from compulsive overeating. We welcome everyone who wants to stop eating compulsively. There are no dues or fees for members; we are self-supporting through our own contributions, neither soliciting nor accepting outside donations. OA is not affiliated with any public or private organization, political movement, ideology, or religious doctrine; we take no position on outside issues. Our primary purpose is to abstain from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviors and to carry the message of recovery through the Twelve Steps of OA to those who still suffer.
Our Invitation to You
The Twelve Traditions of Overeaters Anonymous
Abstinence in Overeaters Anonymous is the action of refraining from compulsive eating and compulsive food behaviors while working towards or maintaining a healthy body weight. Spiritual, emotional, and physical recovery is the result of living the Overeaters Anonymous Twelve Step program.
The OA tools of recovery help us work the Steps and refrain from compulsive overeating. The nine tools are: a plan of eating, sponsorship, meetings, telephone, writing, literature, an action plan, anonymity, and service. For more information, read The Tools of Recovery OA page.
Sponsorship is one of our keys to success. Sponsors are OA members committed to abstinence and to living the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions to the best of their ability. Sponsors share their program up to the level of their experience and strengthen their recovery through this service to others. To find a sponsor, look for someone who has what you want and ask how he or she is achieving it. Will all abstinent sponsors please identify themselves in their post?
According to our Seventh Tradition, we are self-supporting through our own contributions. Our group number is 99038. Please use the group number when making your contribution. As our virtual group currently has no expenses please consider donating directly through this link to the OA World Service Office, who provides resources for OA groups all around the world to carry the message to other compulsive overeaters.
Suggested guidelines for sharing: As you share your experience and strength in OA, please also share your hope. Please confine your sharing to your experience with the disease of compulsive eating, the solution offered by OA, and your own recovery from the disease, rather than just the events of the day or week. When responding to other member’s posts, please focus on your personal experience rather than advice giving. If you are having difficulties, share how you use the program to deal with them. If you need to talk more about your difficulties and seek solutions, we suggest you speak to your sponsor and other members after the meeting.
*This is a literature meeting. Today we are studying the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, Page 54.
Hence, we saw that reason isn’t everything. Neither is reason, as most of us use it, entirely dependable, though it emanate from our best minds. What about people who proved that man could never fly?
Closing By following the Twelve Steps, attending meetings regularly, and using the OA Tools, we are changing our lives. You will find hope and encouragement in Overeaters Anonymous. To the newcomer, we suggest attending at least six different meetings to learn the many ways OA can help you. The opinions expressed here today are those of individual OA members and do not represent OA as a whole. Let us all reach out by private message to newcomers, returning members, and each other. Together we get better.

2023.03.22 13:12 CapnWilfbeard I'm so sorry, I know it's stupid and repetitive but I have to do it.

My pharmacy is currently being audited for compliance with a worldwide awareness program. I have to counsel every patient using a certain antiepileptic on appropriate contraceptive measures because it regularly causes damage to developing fetuses (feti?).
I'm about to go counsel Mr MD (a 61 year old man), for the third month running, about how if he's a woman of childbearing age he needs to take extra protective measures during sexual intercourse. And hand him a little instructional card about it.

2023.03.22 13:10 Fourcruxes_Luyan 11.4.5 Sense Node 识蕴

11.4.5 Sense Node 识蕴
Sense means “clearly distinguishing”; has eight faculties: 1 eye-sense, 2 ear-sense, 3 nose-sense, 4 tongue-sense, 5 body-sense, 6 intent-sense, 7 preconscious, and 8 unconscious. Seventh sense preconscious, is also as Intent-place, is front six senses’ mobile working platform. Eighth sense unconscious is general root of all front seven senses. As illustration 11.4.5-1 shows, earlier six senses, each accumulates a node of habits; Sense Node is sum of those six nodes of habits.
Sense is meaning, is heart; more specifically, sense has the three significances: 1) “clearly distinguishing” is named as Sense, 2) “meaning and measuring” is named as Intent, 3) “aggregate arousal” is named as heart.
What is the “aggregate arousal”? Answer: it has three significances: 1) heart is capable to aggregate juristic seeds, 2) heart is those juristic seeds aggregated, 3) heart can arouse mature seeds into performance, let them become present bodily orally or mentally behaviors; more specific explanation refers to section 14.1 Aggregate Arousal.
11.4.5-1 Front Six Senses 前六识
The earlier six senses’ functions are clearly discernment. (1) Eye sense, that is, the seeing of seeing colors. (2) Ear sense, that is, the hearing of hearing sounds. (3) Nose sense, that is, the smell of smelling fragrance. (4) Tongue sense, that is, the tasting of tasting of tasting tastes. (5) Body sense, that is, the feeling of the flesh body. (6) Intent-sense, that is, the knowing of comprehension on laws. The six senses are exactly seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, feeling, and knowing; and they also have name of “six feelings”.
了别就是明了地辨别。(1)眼识,即见色之 见。(2)耳识, 即闻声之闻。(3)鼻识, 即嗅香之嗅。(4)舌识, 即尝味之尝。(5)身识,即感触之感。(6)意识, 即知法之知。此六识,即见、闻、嗅、尝、感、知之义,还有六情之名。 Correlation to Heartland Laws 与心所有法的相应
The former five senses (eye-sense, ear-sense, nose-sense, tongue-sense, and body-sense) match with 34 heartland laws. 5 omnipresent heartland laws (touch, attention, acceptation, think, and mean); 5 circumstantial heartland laws (desire, resolution, spell, stillness, and gnosis); 11 benevolent heartland laws (faith, shame, sin [remorse], non-greed, non-irritation, ignorance-less, diligently advance, ease, non-indulgence, renunciation, harmlessness); 3 fundamental annoyances (greed, irritation, and ignorance); 2 medium latent annoyances (shameless and sinless); 8 large latent annoyances (depression, drowsiness, non-belief, slack, indulgence, lost spell, agitation, and improper know).
Sixth sense, Intent-sense matches to all 51 heartland laws (refers to migration node).
第六识(意识)与51位心所有法(参见行蕴)都相应。 Correlation to Environments 与环境的相应
Environments aggregated by eight senses can be categorized into the three types: 1) nature environment, 2) solitary-head environment, 3) environment with quality.
1) nature environment, that is, an environment with its own nature, which is born from a real seed and has a physical use. Manifestation shown by aggregately heart obtained counterpart nature is named as Nature Environment, has five aspects of significance: 1) gained from present-quantity; 2) have supportive medium, such as sounds must have hearable medium; 3) born from its own seed, not from the aggregately heart born directly; 4) it has practical functions and uses; 5) its nature and boundary system do not change with the change of the capable heart (i.e., mind).
一 性境,即有自身性质的境,从实种生,有实体用。能缘之心,得彼自性显相,名为性境,具足五义:一、从现量所得;二、有仗质,比如声音必须有耳听闻的质;三、从自种生,不是从能见种直接生出来的;四、有实际的功能和用途;五、其性质与界系不随能缘心的改变而改变。
2) solitary-head environment, is projected by its own heart alone, without other stimuli or nature, such as hallucination, dream, and occasionally popping out thoughts in loose mind. The environments’ formations are correspondingly following thinker’s opinions, and its existence rely on thinker’s inner thoughts. The book’s chapter 12 Meditation inclusively talks solitary-head environment.
二 独影境,即能缘心单独成相,心自己成相,没有别的本质。独影境的存在依于内滤所托。本书12《禅》中讲的都是独影境。
3) environment with quality, the objective environment is with medium quality, isn’t its own phenomena; has two types: (1) really with quality, (2) similarly with quality.
(1) really with quality, from heart to aggregate heart, is named as “really with quality”. That is, sixth sense aggregates all other hearts or heartland laws; and seventh sense (i.e., preconscious) aggregates eighth sense’s second quadrant (view quadrant).
(2) similarly with quality. From heart to aggregate color, is named as “similarly with quality”; the saying is that the environment is aroused with objective, has similar quality of that objective, such as according to sutra to make view, those aren’t front five senses’ objective environments.
三 带质境,谓能缘心缘所缘境,有所杖质而不得自相,谓之带质境。一、真带质,以心缘心名真带质,即第六识通缘一切心及心所,及第七识单缘第八识之见分是也。二、似带质,以心缘色名似带质,谓带彼相起,有似彼质,如依经作观,非是五识所缘现境故也。
In the respect of front six senses’ correlation to the three types of environment, front five senses’ counterparts all are first type: nature environments. Sixth sense can aggregate all the three types of environments.
至于前六识所对是哪一种境,前五识为缘性境;第六意识通缘这三种境。 Correlation to Three Quantities 与三量的相应
There are three kinds of quantities produced or received by the eight senses; the three are: present-quantity, metaphysical-quantity, and non-quantity.
1) Present-Quantity, during aggregative heart is measuring objective environment, the resulted fruit before any discrimination and measurement is present-quantity. Necessarily, present-quantity should satisfy the three conditions: (1) it is present, neither past nor future; (2) the being cognized component must be on manifestation; (3) on presentation aspect, the aggregative heart and the being measured environment, both should be on lucidly manifestation, are dependent mutually.
一 现量,能缘之心量所缘之境,没有分别计度的情况下所获之量果。现量具有三个条件:一、是现在时,以简别於过去或未来;二、心识认识的对象必须要显现出来,亦即必须是现行位之法,种子不能成为现量;三、现有,在能所位上,即能量之心与所量之境,二者俱是明白现前,和合俱有。
2) Metaphysical-Quantity, is speculating measuring fruit from reference, such as you see smoke on the mountain, you can infer that there must be fire there; you see two horns outside the wall, you can infer that there is a cattle outside the wall.
二 比量,是通过推测比度而获致的量果。如见山上有烟,推知该处必有火;见墙外有双角,推知墙外有牛。
3) Non-Quantity, is collectively referred to “similar present-quantity” and “similar metaphysical- quantity”. A “similar present- quantity” is a quantity that is similar to a real quantity but is not a fact of that kind. Similar Present Quantity, that is, discriminating intelligence differentially fetches quantity, such as, a wise man who knows that vases and clothes are born because of treatment and distinction, those are not by self-phenomena as its realm. A Similar Metaphysical-Quantity is from an inappropriate metaphor. Similar Metaphysical-Quantity, according to preconceptual intelligence wisdom first, the meaning of similarity arises, such as mistaking the fog in the mountains for smoke and inferring that there is fire there. For another example, when seeing a lifelike stone lion, one feels fear and does not think it is just a stone. It isn’t correct, is from factual stream but not real, is named as Similar Metaphysical-Quantity.
三 非量,似现量和似比量统称为非量。似现量是和现量相似的量,但不是那种现量的事实。似现量,谓有分别智,于境异化而取量。如有智者知道花瓶衣服等,因为对待和分别而生,由彼于义,不以自相为境界故。似比量是不太恰当的比喻量。似比量,依似因智为先,所起相似之义,如于山中误认为雾是烟而推度,那里有火。再比如,看见一个栩栩如生的石头狮子,心生恐惧,不认为它只是一块石头。不能正解,是真之流而非真,名似比量。
In respect of former six senses’ correlation to the three Quantities, front five senses (i.e., eye-sense, ear-sense, nose-sense, tongue-sense, and body-sense) only match to the Present-Quantity. Sixth sense, Intent-sense, can process all the three types of quantities.
前五识唯是现量;第六识中三种量都有。 Correlation to Ethics 八识与道德的相应
Ethical natures can be categorized as the three: good nature, evil nature, memoryless nature.
1) good, an action that benefits this world and others. Former six sense (i.e., eye-sense, ear-sense, nose-sense, tongue-sense, body-sense, and intent-sense) all have good nature.
一 善,能为此世及它世受益的行为。眼耳等前六识有善性。
2) evil, an action that can cause harm in this world and in other worlds. All former six senses have evil nature.
二 恶,能为此世及它世造成损害的行为。眼耳等前六识有恶性。
3) memoryless nature 无记性
Morally neutral, neither good nor evil behavior will leave no record karma, what memoryless nature is! The memoryless karma is also being called immaculate karma. What is karma? Answer: karma is the three karmas: bodily karma, oral karma, and intentional karma. Bodily karma is bodily behaviors’ habitual deposits, what the flesh body is. Oral karma is lingual habitual deposits, what the mouth’s speaking is. Intentional karma is habitual deposits of intents, what the mental thinks are. Memoryless nature has two types: (1) convertible memoryless, (2) nonconvertible memoryless.
三 无记,道德上中性,不善不恶的行为会留下无记业,即无记忆的业或称净业。无记有两种:有覆无记,无覆无记。
(1) convertible memoryless, that is saying of seventh sense (i.e., intent, preconscious), its behaviors are pollutions, don’t produce good or evil karma, that is called “no record” (memoryless). The preconscious memory is like the memory of a computer, it is updated and changed at any time, which means that preconscious is convertible.
一 有覆无记,这是在说第七识,前意识,其行为是染污但不产生善恶业,此称无记。前意识的记忆像似计算机的内存,随时更新变化,此说前意识的有覆性。
(2) nonconvertible memoryless, is saying of eighth sense (unconscious). Many unconscious properties remain unchanged throughout life, and it does not distinguish between good and evil, its nature is not contaminated, nor good or evil, so it is called memoryless, that is, without recallable memory. Nonconvertible means that everything from birth to death of a person will be remembered unconsciously, regardless of whether the person's consciousness remembers it or not, its past experiences all have effects on present and future life.
二 无覆无记,这是在说第八识。许多无意识的性质终生不变,且其不辨善恶,本性非染,亦非善恶,故名无记,即无记忆。无覆,是说一个人从出生到死亡,一切都会被无意识记忆,无论这个人的思想意识记得还是不记得,它过去的经历记忆都会发生作用。
Among eight senses, eighth sense (unconscious, also God-sense) is nonconvertible memoryless, seventh sense (preconscious, also Eve-sense) is convertible memoryless. Eye-sense, ear-sense etc. six former senses have all the three ethical natures; that is saying, among good laws, they appear as good nature; in evil laws, they show as evil qualities.
八识当中,第八识是无覆无记性;第七识是有覆无记性。眼耳等前六识这三种性质都有,于善法中,它们表现为善性;于恶法,它们就是恶性。 Correlation to Three Boundaries Nine Heartlands 八识与三界九地的相应
Life Tree Illustration 11.0
Nose-sense, (sexual sense), and tongue-sense exist in desire boundary only. Three boundaries nine heartlands refer to illustration 11.0 or chapter 13. Eye-sense, ear-sense, and body-sense exist in “five interests mixed dwell heartland” and “leave producing laugh heartland”, the two lands. Sixth sense (intent-sense), seventh sense (i.e., preconscious), and eighth sense (i.e., unconscious) exist in all the three boundaries nine heartlands.
一 鼻舌(和男女的性感觉)二识只在欲界有,不通上界。
二 眼、耳、身三识,唯在 “五趣杂居地” 和 “离生喜乐地” ,此两地存在。第三地及以上,前五识(眼耳鼻舌身)全无。
三 第六识意识,第七识前意识,和第八识无意识遍三界九地而有。
11.4.5-2 Preconscious 前意识
Preconscious is called Mana in Buddhism, and Eve in Islam and Christianity. Ancients said that it is subtle and difficult to distinguish, so they use its major companion "Intent" to represent it. Therefore, we call Preconscious as Intent in Buddhism. Preconscious is root for six former senses, is ever updating work platform of mind, which is constantly updating itself with the change of intention.
Ancients often used "measuring worm (inchworm)" to describe its behaviors. When inchworm moves, its hind feet are always grabbing something; its front feet are looking for a foothold, meaning. After the front foot is firmly grasped, the back foot follows. The way its moves as if measuring. Preconscious’ moves are very similar to those, and it means always. Preconscious is also always attached to something when moving; this attachment is the very tiny "inner ego" of human. The "small self" is called Fortune (福) in Chinese, “genius kid” in Buddhism, Brahmin in Hinduism, Abel in Islam, and Christianity.
古人常用 “步屈虫(尺蠖)” 来比喻前意识的行为特点。步屈虫移动时,后脚总是抓着些什么;前脚在寻找落脚点,思忖着。前脚抓稳后,后脚跟进。这样它的移动像是在丈量。前意识的特点与步屈虫非常类似,也总是思量着。移动时,前意识也总是执着些什么东西;此执着就是人思想内的很微小的“自我”。这个“小我”,汉语作福,佛教作儒童,印度教作婆罗门(Bramin),伊斯兰教和基督教作亚伯(Abel)。
In addition, preconsciousness can promote the formation of language, so ancients also called it "escalatory feeler", which means that it escalates language.
另外,前意识对语言的形成有促进作用,所以古人也称之为 “增语处”,义为对语言有增上的作用。
1) correlation to heartland laws 与心所有法的相应
Preconscious match with 18 heartland laws: 5 omnipresent heartland laws (touch, attention, acceptation, think, and mean), 1 circumstantial law (gnosis), 4 fundamental annoyances (greed, ignorance, arrogance, translocating body views), and 8 large latent annoyances (depression, drowsiness, non-belief, slack, indulgence, lost spell, agitation, and improper know).
2) correlation to environments 与环境的相应
All environments aggregated by preconscious are “environment with quality” (refer to section
3) Correlation to Three Quantities 与三量的相应
Preconscious correlates to non-Quantity (refers to section11.4.5.1-3) only.
4) Correlation to Ethics 与道德的相应
Preconscious’ ethical nature is “convertible memoryless” (refers to section
前意识的道德性是 “有覆无记性”。
5) Correlation to Nine Heartlands 与九地的相应
Preconscious exists in all three boundaries nine heartlands (refers to section, certainly excludes “Non-think sky” in fourth meditation skies.
11.4.5-3 Unconscious 无意识
The most outstanding character of unconscious is mutation. Mutation is saying that juristic seeds in unconscious are being smoked into maturity. Mutation is mature because mutations can keep karmas. And, chapter 16 of the book talks ten kinds of true-suchness, which are other ten characters of unconscious.
1) correlation to heartland laws 与心所有法的相应
Unconscious only matches with 5 omnipresent heartland laws (touch, attention, acceptation, think, and mean).
2) correlation to environments 与环境的相应
Whatever environments aggregated by unconscious are “nature environments” (refer to section
3) Correlation to Three Quantities 与三量的相应
Unconscious processes present-Quantity (refers to section11.4.5.1-3) only.
4) Correlation to Ethics 与道德的相应
Unconscious’ ethical nature is “nonconvertible memoryless” (refers to section
无意识的道德性是 “无覆无记”。

Unconscious exists in all three boundaries nine heartlands (refers to section

2023.03.22 13:08 Zealousideal-Code818 How did they choose such a well balanced team?

I'm watching all the episodes back, and I just can't get over just how perfect the team is, they balance each other's strengths and weaknesses so perfectly. I'd love to know how the team came together
Tony is such a glue type person, he gels the team with each other, but also the public so well, he's so charismatic and passionate. He challenges them all, regularly pushing the team to do things that are a little further than they are used to, and really showing the frustration of the public when the team aren't comfortable doing it. He's particularly good at working Mick, but is regularly put in his place by Phil. Watching him with the public on time team is heart warming
Mick, he's just so knowledgeable, you can see everyone immediately respects him, he lead's the team so coolly, but still shows his passion, and is always open to being wrong. He's good at working the people who Tony might not be as good with, such as wealthy property owners. Despite clearly being the most knowledgeable on the team, he's never patronising or holier than thou, and clearly has a soft spot for Tony
Phil is the stick if Mick is the carrot, he's an excellent archaeologist, and doesn't let himself get walked on. He's not always a stickler, often willing to bend the rules, but at times he can be a little pig headed, but it's only ever for the good of archaeology as a whole. He's got character in droves and his passion for flint is unparalleled, his back and forth with Tony is always hilarious and Tony being extra careful asking about stepping in his trenches never fails to make me laugh!
Carenza is the Hermione of the group, she's never willing to bend the rules, and always advocates for the textbook way, which often seems to pay off. She's very good at pushing the team to be the best archaeologists and not let standards slip due to the time pressure. She's a saint for not getting frustrated when she doesn't get her own way, regularly having to do the worst job on the site in a way she didn't want to, but always still does an excellent job. She's often fighting for the opposite of Tony and they balance each other very well. She's another person who is really good at working the land owners that Tony might not be good at because she's so by the book you can trust she won't do anything harmful.
John Gater, Another great character, really plays well off Stewart. He definitely makes himself just outside of the core team of archaeologists, despite being an integral part. He's very good at calming the team down when they let their ideas run away from them, and is extremely honest about the quality of the results, he's very quick to say when he's wrong, and confident to push the team when they're wrong. It's really cool that he often can just keep surveying the site, even when the team are not going to be digging those areas
Stewart Ainsworth, my favourite member of the team, the way he looks at the wider picture is fascinating. He's like geofizz if it could work from home. He is able to pull so much information just by standing in a field, or looking at a modern aerial photo, as I understand it, the idea for the show was sort of inspired by Mick doing a little bit of what Stewart basically does, and I can really see how that would inspire the show. While he's not usually the one to be able to give definitive answers, he's the one who can best describe how the site relates to its whole area and life as a whole.
Francis is what I see as a stereotypical archaeologist, he's not dissimilar to Mick, but doesn't have some of Mick's finest qualities, he's a Mick from wish, which needn't be an insult as Mick is unparalleled. Francis is confident and excited, he's quite happy to get on with it himself and he's often willing to put in the extra effort to make that happen. He can be quite abrasive, however that comes into it's own when giving opinions, as the opposing view shows it's not always clear cut
Raksha is a real breath of fresh air, and she helps to bridge the gap between Tony and the archaeologists, but also really humanises archaeology, which can often feel a bit of a pursuit only available for wealthy privately educated types. She's extremely knowledgeable and isn't too serious
Victor is so talented, you never seem to hear him talk, he appears to be a quiet soul, but he really helps bring the show together, as often the archaeology is very difficult to interpret. Every now and then he has a little funny drawing that shows his humour.

It's such a pleasure to watch them all and it's a shame that the damaging of the team is what ultimately brought the show to an end, when the show is clearly held up by the amazing characters on it.

2023.03.22 13:07 bureaquete Asked Bing AI to generate a dialogue between Ethan & KavKav, it got too real

Sure, I can create a dialogue between Ethan Klein from h3 and Ryan Kavanaugh. Here is one possible scenario:

Ethan: Hello, everyone. Welcome to the H3 podcast. Today we have a very special guest, the CEO of Triller and the man who is suing me for millions of dollars, Ryan Kavanaugh. Ryan, thank you for joining us.
Ryan: Thank you for having me, Ethan. I'm here to clear the air and set the record straight.
Ethan: Okay, well, let's start with the obvious question. Why are you suing me?
Ryan: I'm suing you because you illegally streamed the Jake Paul vs. Ben Askren fight on your podcast, which was a pay-per-view event that my company Triller produced and distributed. You also made false and defamatory statements about me and my company, such as accusing us of inflating the pay-per-view numbers, lying about our investors, and being a scam.
Ethan: Well, first of all, I did not illegally stream the fight. I only showed a few seconds of clips that were already widely available on social media. That's fair use, and it's protected by the First Amendment.
Ryan: That's not fair use, Ethan. That's piracy. You showed the entire fight to your millions of viewers, and you deprived us of our rightful revenue. You also encouraged your fans to pirate the fight and spread lies about us.
Ethan: That's not true, Ryan. I never encouraged anyone to pirate anything. I was just commenting on the fight as a public figure and a critic. And I didn't spread lies about you. I only reported on what was already out there in the media.
Ryan: The media is biased against me, Ethan. They have an agenda to smear me and my company. They are jealous of our success and our innovation. We are revolutionizing the entertainment industry with Triller, and we are giving opportunities to new talent and new audiences.
Ethan: Come on, Ryan. You can't seriously expect me to believe that. Triller is a rip-off of TikTok, and your fights are a joke. You have no credibility or integrity. You are a con artist and a bully.
Ryan: How dare you say that to me, Ethan? You are the one who has no credibility or integrity. You are a hypocrite and a coward. You hide behind your microphone and your lawyers, and you attack people who are more successful than you.
Ethan: Oh, please, Ryan. You are the one who is hiding behind your lawyers and your money. You are suing me because you can't handle criticism or competition. You are trying to silence me and intimidate me.
Ryan: I'm not trying to silence you or intimidate you, Ethan. I'm trying to hold you accountable for your actions and your words. You have crossed the line, and you have to face the consequences.
Ethan: What consequences, Ryan? You have no case against me. Your lawsuit is frivolous and baseless. It's a SLAPP suit, designed to harass me and drain my resources.
Ryan: It's not a SLAPP suit, Ethan. It's a legitimate claim for damages. You have harmed me and my company with your illegal streaming and your defamation. And I have evidence to prove it.
Ethan: What evidence, Ryan? Show me the evidence.
Ryan: I can't show you the evidence right now, Ethan. It's confidential and proprietary. But trust me, I have it.
Ethan: Yeah, sure you do, Ryan. Just like you have evidence for all your other claims that turned out to be false or exaggerated.
Ryan: They are not false or exaggerated, Ethan. They are true and accurate.
Ethan: Okay, Ryan. Let's test that. How about we make a bet?
Ryan: A bet? What kind of bet?
Ethan: A simple bet. If you can prove any of your claims against me in court, I will pay you whatever amount you want. But if you can't prove any of them, you will drop the lawsuit and apologize to me publicly.
Ryan: That's a ridiculous bet, Ethan.
Ethan: Why? Are you afraid to take it?
Ryan: No, I'm not afraid to take it.
Ethan: Then take it.
Ryan: Fine. I'll take it.
Ethan: Great. It's a deal then.
Ryan: It's a deal.
Ethan: Alright then. Thank you for joining us today, Ryan Kavanaugh.
Ryan: Thank you for having me today, Ethan Klein.
Ethan: And thank you for watching the H3 podcast everyone. See you next time.

2023.03.22 13:03 9yr_old_lake I found the hoes

I found em... My friends. I showed lean beef patty and SCARING THE HOES to my friends for purly scientific purposes, and my research has concluded that they are the hoes. I would say they where both positively scared during the entire duration of both songs. One of my friends said the beat on SCARING THE HOES was "absolute nonsense" and only a deeply terrified man would say such a thing. Thank you for coming to my ted talk.

2023.03.22 13:01 timeforteaaa OKOK SO SEE I NEED LITTLE HELP YEA?

So like Ive been doing kickboxing for over 3 years now and I'm like 5'0 and 41kg. THE ISSUE is that I'm really good at what I do and i also go to the gym regularly (because of boards and practicals and PBs and all I had to stop for around 5 months). I've fought in matched before and have won quite a few as well against opponents who did NOT match my height and weight and were almost always taller and heavier because they literally cannot find anyone with the same build as me so it'd always given them an advantage but I still do my best. I just wanted to know what I could do to get like, JACKED yk? I already have a bit of muscle but the fucking instagram bitches made me so insecure while I was mid bulk so I'm back to being SKINNYYYY which I HATE so this is like a mini crisis. Is there a way to build on what I already have without having to bulk??? I just wanna be able to fight fairly and not be underestimated by my opponents because it's so EMBARRASSING. It'll be hard to grow in height now so might as well try to build muscle mass instead of just GAINING WEIGHT.

2023.03.22 12:59 EatThatPotato Une question - la liste « Élite » du XV de France

Bonjour /FranceRugby, j'ai une question pour vous
Je m'excuse à l'avant, mon français est très mal (criticism welcome, traduction anglais at the bottom in case my writing simply makes no sense)
Sur la page wikipédie de Baptiste Serin:
> En Anglais: He was then included in the 2016/17 30-man "elite" list, made of players selected by the French national team to be protected and not allowed to play more than 30 games that year.
> En Français: En juillet, il figure dans la liste « Élite » du XV de France
Mais ce list est absent dans les pages pour autres joueurs (Dupont, Ntamack etc...)
Sur la /RugbyUnion il y a beaucoup de conversation qu'il parles les joueurs d'ovalie francais sont fatigué parce que ils jouent trop de jeux
C'est ma question: What happened to this list? I cannot find any information online in English about it, but it seems to be a solution to combat the fatigue players are in, and many other countries seem to implement a similar rule. Was it a one-time thing? or is it still being made regularly. I cannot find anything similar to this. (Je suis desolee, je sais pas comment parler ici en français)
Merci Beaucoup!
On the wikipedia page for Baptiste Serin, they mention a "elite" list of players that are only allowed to play a certain amount of games a year. However, this list is not mentioned in any of the other players’ Wikipedia pages (Dupont, Ntamack etc...) Yet in /RugbyUnion we see a lot of talk regarding the fatigue French players are in because of the long season and the number of games they play in the regular season.
So my question is, what happened to this list? Is it still being made? Was it a one time thing that is no longer relevant?
I am unable to find anything in English, and my French isn't good enough to search google so I have come here to ask if anyone knows about it.
Merci beaucoup!

2023.03.22 12:57 infernal1999 Can high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases cause erectile dysfunction?

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is a condition where a man is unable to get or maintain an erection that is firm enough for sexual intercourse. It is a common condition affecting approximately 30 million men in the United States alone, and it becomes more prevalent with age.
While ED can be caused by a variety of factors, such as psychological issues, hormonal imbalances, and lifestyle factors, it can also be a symptom of underlying cardiovascular diseases, such as high blood pressure (hypertension), atherosclerosis, and peripheral artery disease.
In this article, we will discuss the link between high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases and erectile dysfunction.
High Blood Pressure and Erectile Dysfunction.
High blood pressure is a common condition where the blood pressure in the arteries is consistently elevated. It is a major risk factor for several cardiovascular diseases, including heart disease, stroke, and peripheral artery disease. Additionally, high blood pressure can lead to erectile dysfunction.
High blood pressure can damage the lining of the blood vessels, making it harder for blood to flow to the penis. This, in turn, can cause problems with getting or maintaining an erection. Moreover, high blood pressure can damage the nerves that control the blood vessels in the penis, further contributing to ED.
Atherosclerosis and Erectile Dysfunction.
Atherosclerosis is a condition where the arteries become narrowed and hardened due to the buildup of plaque. This can lead to several cardiovascular diseases, including heart disease and peripheral artery disease. Atherosclerosis can also cause ED. The plaque buildup can impede blood flow to the penis, making it difficult to get or maintain an erection.
Peripheral Artery Disease and Erectile Dysfunction.
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a condition where the arteries in the legs become narrowed or blocked, leading to reduced blood flow to the legs. It is also a common condition in individuals with cardiovascular diseases. PAD can cause ED because the reduced blood flow to the legs can also affect the blood flow to the penis, making it difficult to achieve or maintain an erection.
Treatment Options.
The treatment for ED depends on the underlying cause. If the cause is high blood pressure, it is essential to control blood pressure levels. This can be achieved through lifestyle changes such as exercising regularly, eating a healthy diet, and reducing stress levels. Medications can also be prescribed to help lower blood pressure.
For atherosclerosis, lifestyle changes such as a healthy diet, exercise, and quitting smoking can be helpful. Medications such as statins can also be prescribed to help lower cholesterol levels.
If the underlying cause is peripheral artery disease, treatments such as lifestyle changes, medication, and surgery can be used to improve blood flow to the legs and, by extension, the penis.
Erectile dysfunction can be a symptom of underlying cardiovascular diseases such as high blood pressure, atherosclerosis, and peripheral artery disease. It is important to manage these conditions to improve overall health and reduce the risk of complications such as heart attacks and strokes.
Lifestyle changes such as exercise, healthy eating, and stress reduction, along with medication and surgery, can be effective in treating these conditions and improving erectile dysfunction. If you are experiencing ED, it is essential to speak with your doctor to determine the underlying cause and develop a treatment plan.
Why VigRX Plus® Is the Best Solution for Your Erectile Dysfunction?
While lifestyle changes and medications are effective in managing high blood pressure and other cardiovascular diseases, some men may still experience erectile dysfunction. In such cases, supplements such as VigRX Plus can be an option to consider.
VigRX Plus is a male enhancement supplement that has been clinically proven to increase libido, improve erectile function, and enhance sexual performance. The formula contains natural ingredients, including Damiana and Tribulus, that have been used for centuries to address sexual health concerns. Additionally, Bioperine helps to increase the absorption of the other ingredients, ensuring that they are effectively utilized by the body.
One of the benefits of VigRX Plus is that it does not have any known side effects, unlike some prescription medications for erectile dysfunction. Moreover, it is easy to use, with a recommended dosage of two pills a day.
Overall, VigRX Plus is a safe and effective option for men seeking to improve their sexual health and address erectile dysfunction. If you are experiencing erectile dysfunction, speak with your doctor about whether VigRX Plus could be a beneficial addition to your treatment plan.

2023.03.22 12:51 JustRollWithThis Interdimentional villain exchange program -2- The Fall

Interdimentional Villain Exchange Program -2- The Fall

So Here i am, beaten up, stranded in an unknown world, and currently falling to my death in a seemingly endless expanse of an azure sky…
I wonder if it truly is endless. I'm honestly not sure whether I would prefer to fall until I die of thirst, or of abruptly stopping falling. Well, whichever it is is a secondary issue, since I would much rather survive instead.
I looked around, hoping to see one of those floating islands near enough to simply conjure a wind to push me a little before casting a simple [Feather Fall] spell and be done with it, but sadly none were near enough. Although there was one that could be worked with. One of the smaller islands looked barely close enough to give it a shot. A little bit too far for my liking to be honest but far enough down to leave enough wiggle room to work with. It was entirely covered with sparse forest, with the exception of a small pond in the middle.
It would have to do. Although I will have to be a little bit creative to get there.
Normally there would be no problem with crossing the distance that separated me from this island. It was only about six miles after all. A simple [Fly] spell would be more than sufficient to cover many times this distance. And that's not even taking any dimensionalism spells into account
The problem however was, that this isn’t a normal situation. Without any sort of spell focus any complex spell formula I try to use is going to be highly unstable, leaking mana like crazy at best, or completely collapsing at worst. Because of that any advanced, multifunctional spell with a complex formula is out of the question.
My mana reserve is not small by any means, but even I cannot sustain a 5-10% mana efficiency [Fly] spell for long. Not to mention that depending on the mana density around me the spell relatively complex might just collapse, and a backlash from an imploded spell is the last thing my battered body needs at the moment.
That leaves me then only with the First Magic spells at my disposal. They might not be the most powerful or complex, but their incredible casting speed and a spell formula designed to function without a spell focus is just what I need right now.
But after mentally running through all the first magic spells i know i realized i don't quite have anything that could easily get me out of my situation. All the First Magic spells I knew are focused on one of two things, combat utility, mainly disruption and creating distance from my opponent, and making my day to day existence easier.
‘Yeah… Why would I learn [Glide] if I already know [Fly]? A complete waste of time I said… it's much better to learn the [Chill] spell to cool my drinks.’ I lampooned silently.
‘Ok. Focus. There will be time to punch myself in the face later. Now it's time to get creative, not depressed.’
When my mind was still trying to work out what I could do to save myself from death, I suddenly remembered my first ever magic teacher. He was an old cripple who served in the Royal Army until he lost his arm. By now I obviously know that he wasn’t much more than a third rate mage with a forth rate training. However thanks to that he knew the life of the weak and powerless much better than any other teacher i ever had, and although most of his teaching have been lacking in detail, or were straight up incorrect, he taught me two things that other mages not only would not teach me, but did not fully understand themselves.
Those lessons have saved his life numerous times, so he made a point to teach them to me before anything else. And since then they have saved mine over and over again. And it was time to rely on them again.
It only took me a second to come up with a plan. I started casting a [Blink] spell. [Blink] Is a very useful spell. It works by creating a small portal door to a different location within around ten meters, and then dragging the entrance portal through the space that the caster occupies, making the caster appear at the location of an exit portal.
It's the simplest dimensionalism spell, due to its small range and a brief existence of the portal. The degree of mastery that a mage has over this spell however, is often said to be the easiest way to differentiate an amateur from the master of magic.
That's mainly due to the insane versatility this spell has. Sure its most obvious use is to create or close the distance from the enemy combatant, however there is so much more that this spell can do. You can dodge arrows with it, or even redirect them at the enemies. You can cast it anchored to an enemy that is too close to you for your liking and reposition them, and so much more.
Even the advanced dimensionalism spell [Dimensional Shield] is nothing more than a mana construct using [Blink] spells to redirect attacks aimed at the caster towards the attackers.
All of that was possible thanks to the fact that [Blink] created a temporary portal gateway instead of being an instant transmission spell like [Shadow Step] was. Which meant that it allowed the objects transported with it to carry momentum they had before instead of canceling it out.
This was exactly the quality I desired to use right now. Normally the entrance and the exit portals share the same angle of entrance. You would not want to [Blink] only to find out that you are upside down now, right? However with just a small alteration to the spell formula, the exit portal can be angled however you would like. As a result, when i casted the spell, I chose to place the entrance portal under me facing up, and the exit portal above me, facing towards the floating island I was aiming for, which resulted in me shooting towards my goal at terminal velocity, and resetting my falling speed to zero.
What I just did was the result of the first lesson I ever received. A lesson I could still hear today as clearly as the day it was first given.
“Listen to me carefully Young One, because what I'm about to say will not be taught to you anywhere else. Magic allows us to bend reality to our will, and most of us, Mages, pride ourselves on dominating it to do our bidding.” He said with his old, tired voice “Reality however is not your enemy, but your greatest ally. If you learn to walk alongside it on the road to your goals, you are going to achieve much more than if you had to fight it on every step of your way”.
This lesson, although simple, has saved me more times than I could remember. Yet to my shock when i asked about it my next teacher he just scoffed and said that “this is a lesson of a weak and powerless”, and that “a true mage bows to no one, not even the world itself”
I was still young and naive back then so I believed him. After all, He was already systematically pointing out a thousand flaws and imperfections in my spellcraft, and seeing my spellcasting improve by the day I believed him that he was also right about this.
It was only a few years later that I realized how foolish that was. I was escaping from an heir of the Ruderic noble family. He was chasing me through the woods because I dared to attempt to stop him while he was about to have fun with some poor village girl that caught his eye.
I did not know he was a mage himself. and a good one at that. Much better than me back then anyway. I was running for my life, burned in places, sliced others. I managed to evade him for a while. However, I was caught when I mistakenly ran into a small ravine. I had nowhere to run and no one to help me. I was trapped with no escape and no help in sight.
And then he caught up to me. Seeing i was trapped he started to boast about how pathetic i am, and what he is going to do to me before he kills me. Luckily in my moment of panic I remembered the lesson the old man gave me, and spotted an opportunity.
A giant boulder, much more massive than anything I could lift with magic was positioned right above where the nobleman was standing. But I didn't have to lift it. Only then I realized the wisdom of the words I have been told. Don't fight reality. Because if you make it your ally, you will never fight alone. And as the stone hurled down to save me, I swore to myself to never question the wisdom of the weak ever again.
However that was only the first part of the wisdom bestowed upon me that day. And now, in possession of the tremendous speed bestowed to me by my greatest ally, it was time to use the second part.
It's true that I didn't have the perfect spell for the job. But since when is perfection necessary? “It is said that a Great Mage has a hundred spells ready for any situation he encounters” The old man said “But in my opinion a true mark of greatness is the ability to use a single spell in a hundred situations. Do not learn how to stop an arrow in a dozen ways, learn a dozen ways to use an arrow stopping spell”
Once again that wisdom was rebuked by prideful masters, dismissed as the whining of someone incapable of memorizing enough formulas for greatness.
However today I know that they were the ones too stuck in the conventions to achieve anything.
And it proved true once more when I spread my hands and legs while casting a [Mana Shield] spell making it fill up the space between my limbs. [Mana Shield] is an unremarkable spell, useful only due to its extremely simple spell formula, granting it an extremely short casting time even in comparison to other First Magic.
It created a solidified wall of mana that stopped anything from moving through it, be it physical or elemental in nature. Even notoriously difficult to block pure mana projectiles were blocked by it. Its main downsides was relatively low mana efficiency, and possible strength in comparison to more complicated spells. However sometimes you just want a wall in front of you “right fucking now” and all other concerns are secondary.
The main reason I use it now however is the fact that by stopping the air it could serve in a similar way to a wing. This spell can’t extend too far away from my body however, so I could not form those, and I settled on imitating a squirrel-like animal capable of gliding that I once saw at one of the noble houses I burned down and took with me as a pet until it died.
I didn’t have much success at gliding first, until I weakened mana output to the [Mana Shield] allowing it to deform slightly. However after that it only took me a few moments to figure out the kinks of this improvised spell.
But that still would not be enough.
As I closed in on the island I realized that I'm not going to make it. and I watched in horror as the edge of the island moved higher and higher.
However, an inspiration came at the last possible moment when I saw a bird circling above the island.
I need to create an updraft!
And I know just the right spell…
Without wasting any more time I casted [Gust] spell aimed upwards and pumped as much mana as I could into it. After all the spell was created to disperse the fog and smoke type spells or to create a cloud of dust to obscure something if it was casted on sand, not to lift a person upwards, and as such it needed a lot of extra juice to manage.
As the howling wind intensified I could feel the formula of the spell strain under the enormous amount of mana being pumped into it by me. It seemed to almost creek and deform under the pressure, and it seemed as if it was going to shatter. But it would hold.
It had to.
When the part of the formula seemed to falter under the stress I grafted more structural mana onto it, increasing its durability at the cost of mana efficiency.
The formula was breaking, huge amounts of mana were leaking…
…but it was working!
I was slowly but steadily getting closer and closer to the cliff. Just a bit more…
And then, three things seemed to happen all at once.
First, the spell formula finally gave out. It imploded with a thunderous crack sending the excess mana it operated back into its host, shocking every muscle fiber and bone in my body.
Then as the result of the mana backlash from the collapsing [Gust] spell I lost control over the [Mana Shield] spell, causing it to collapse as well. And making me plunge down as a result.
The third thing, and the last thing I remembered before blacking out was the loud THUD sound of me falling to the ground.
‘I made it.’
That was the last thought I had before the unconsciousness took me into its warm embrace.
And I gave in to it.
Safe at last

2023.03.22 12:50 MissionDifficulty306 Why cover layout makes 128 players in bf2042 almost unplayable while games like battlebit are fun with 256 players.

I am a big fan of massive multiplayer battles but 128 player games in this game are not fun. This is not because of the scale itself it is because of how poorly designed the map layout is in this game. For it I am gonna show a fragment of a map designed for 256 players from Battlebit called Basra (sorry for link, Reddit doesn’t allow image + text). Battlebit btw is a battlefield clone with Roblox graphics developed by 3 people currently in playtest and it baffles me this small team has a better map design than a AAA studio.
So, analyzing the map we can divide this fragment in 4 areas:
-Red (interior of the ship): Pure CQB here and the risk of getting sniped is low, by this fact everyone would be here, however it has some disadvantages since there are players at some angles of the ship and at the rooftop. This creates an enviroment where fast movement and quickly changing cover is encouraged.
-Blue (Sides and roof): CQB as well but you have the risk of getting sniper by the snipers situated on the hills. This place has short-mid combat where changing angles is basically required and staying still holding angles to kill players in Red means a sniper bullet to the head. However there is sufficient cover to make the risk of getting sniped low (but definitely possible) as long as you are always on the move. Vehicles are forced to play in this area since they cannot access the yellow zones.
-Yellow (sniper hills): This place is usually occupied by long range snipers however being still is the worst thing you can do. This is because of 2 factors, players in blue having cover and other snipers. In this area you have visual of a section of the ship and you have to be constantly on the move to punish players situated in poor angles in the blue zone. Using you scope for too long is a death sentence since the glare will give away your position to other snipers or players in blue. This zone offers sniper vs sniper gameplay and long range shooting to the players in blue zones.
-Green: open ground, this place is open ground and its purpose is to expand the distance between snipers and regular players. You are not required to cross this area at any moment because there isn‘t an objective or any reason to get there.
So comparing this map with hourglass for example and you can see which one had more thought put into it. The map is huge, players are required to move long distances in open ground where they are easy prey of snipers and vehicles. This creates a weird scenario where most of the players are fighting in the same objective while the rest of the objectives are almost empty. This is not the case of Battlebit, the 256 are equally distributed around the map (full map: because the players can move objectives without the risk of getting sniped and all these zones offer different and interesting gameplays.There are also mayor issues with BF 2042 design that affect how map plays out, being the main one it’s lack of destruction. This creates situations where players are forced to fight in an enclosed space without the ability to change the enviroment to it’s favor, for example opening a new angle.
So in conclusion: Don’t drop the 128 player servers, it can be good and games like battlebit prove that it can be done.

2023.03.22 12:48 QuirkilyQueer My brother is unbearable

So some background context before we begin. I (31NB) have to older brothers, we’ll call them A (43M) and B (41M), we’ve never been particularly close. B has always brought the family drama and caused many a long standing argument between all of us.
A on the other hand, he’s always been my favourite sibling, when my parents initially got divorced he became a father figure to myself and I really looked up to him (I was a baby when this happened and he was just always there).
I don’t come home that often, I hightailed it out of our small town as soon as I was able to. Mum has had some serious health issue, spanning the last 7-10 months so I’ve made the effort.
For the most part everything is calm when I come home. B and I are civil to each other, and he behaves himself. The issue is now with A. I don’t know what has happened the last few years but he’s changed quite a lot.
We can be having a really innocent chat about TV shows or films and getting each others opinions on it. Usually I end up having to cut the conversation short because he goes off on to a rant about how companies are trying to hard to be ‘woke’. Apparently since the #metoo movement then companies have been pushing the ‘woke’ agenda down our throats and expecting us to take it. According to him every film and tv show now needs a strong female lead, making men look weak and then making them obsolete because women are so much better.
He goes into a rant about how it’s unrealistic, at this point I should mention most of the shows we talk about are Sci-fi, fantasy, marvel type things. So to make the argument it’s unrealistic is honestly idiotic!
He’s gotten deep into conspiracy theory things, when Covid was at its height he refused to wear a mask, wouldn’t get vaccinated and admonished the rest of the family for getting them. I have no issue with that, it was his choice, but when it came to it being my choice I was an ‘idiot sheep’ for doing it.
He’s started calling customers at his work ‘scum’ because they have addiction issues or dare spend their money on drugs and alcohol. He doesn’t know these people personally, he builds the opinion off the fact that they are regulars of his (he’s a taxi driver).
If I call him up on any of these things then he just gets angrier, shouts me down and then shuts down himself and sulks like a child!
TL;DR - My brother and I use to be close, now we have really big opposing views. Thanks to him I don’t want to interact with my family anymore.
