2023.05.31 01:23 imbarelyMillennial Looking to improve deep rooted self hate. Wanting to hear other experiences in their journey to improving one’s self-esteem (TW)

(TW: mention of suicide)
I am a 27 year old female who’s looking to improve her self hate.
I recently came to an understanding in therapy that I struggle with my self-esteem. And I’m not talking about the confidence that you wear on yourself every day… I’m talking about the internal unconscious self-esteem that has guided my thoughts and decisions every day for the last few years. I’m a fairly confident outgoing person with great friends and family around me. I tend to be a natural leader in my professional life and am commonly the loudest person in the room in most situations. I’m often found cracking a joke in any space I frequent, and would be the last person one may think would have self-esteem issues.
But the more I process this revelation, the more I see how it fits my situation. I’ve struggled with body dysmorphia my entire life, with my body mass ranging from being overweight to underweight since grade 11. I make all of my decisions with others intentions in mind before my own (wether that is conciliatory or subconsciously). Everything I have achieved over the last couple years truly feel like I was doing them because it was the right thing to do, and the thing that I was expected to do. Never something I truly wanted for myself to try to improve my quality of life. I make decisions based on if it will make my parents proud or not. I truly owe my existence on this earth to my parents and their love and stability, as many times in my life when things have gotten to a breaking point; my family has always been the only reason behind choosing not to go forward with taking my own life. I am forever grateful for my family and how supportive they are, but it’s sad knowing that I have no desire to be on planet earth for myself.
The reason I returned to therapy is because my boyfriend and I are in a very complex breakup. We are both in very different places in life and have decided to part ways as it’s best for the both of us. That being said, since this has happened it has been extremely hard to not let my depression win. Lately I have found it impossible to eat sufficient amounts of food ever day, and find my body is hurting because of it. I don’t like feeling the way it does, but even forcing myself to eat food makes me feel sick. I have no desire to eat, as I deep down don’t see any value in taking care of myself. As hard as a breakup is, I know that it should not leave me as emotionally unstable as it does. Yet I find I can’t prevent feeling so emotionally fractured and shameful for feeling that way.
I feel this self hate I have is very deep rooted and I have no idea how to go about figuring it out. This is the biggest break through I’ve had in therapy ever, and would love to know if anyone has a similar experience. I do want to love myself and trust my own decisions and enjoy my own company and all of those things I seem to be incapable of.

[first] [prev] [next] - [wiki]
Just when you think you've seen it all, humanity goes "Hold my ice cream cone" and then you end up thinking you've seen it all over again. - P'Thok's 8th Law of Humans
"You have entered the tertiary docking facility of the Sentience Upload/Download Storage System," The hologram moved further in and Nakteti watched as it stopped in the middle of the bridge, looking around.
"There are less of you than I would expect," the hologram, Michael, stated. "I must insist that you present authorization at this time."
Nakteti shook her head. "Things outside, in the standard universe of n-space, are... confused, to say the least."
Michael frowned. "Define confused and elaborate on why this confusion pertains to your authorization codes."
"The SUDS has been offline for over a century when we left," she said. "How long we have traveled, compared to realspace, is beyond our ability to discern."
Michael looked around. "The hardware here is showing signs of advanced wear due to age. I would guess approximately six centuries has passed for the crew of this vessel," he frowned again. "Yet, you are a previously unknown species," he looked at Magnus and Surscee. "Baseline human, genetically modified," he looked at the disaster frame Chuck was residing in. "Synthetic lifeform, digital."
Nakteti stepped back up into Michael's vision again. "Digital sentience in a disaster frame," she said. "Technological advances have made it so that a digital sentience has full mobility in a much smaller supporting frame then you are used to."
The hologram nodded slowly. "May I have your consent to access your databases?"
"Providing you make no changes, additions, or subtractions," Nakteti said.
The hologram flickered. "Accessing. Accessing. Done."
The hologram looked at her. "Database analysis will take some time. Due to facility technical difficulties this delay is unavoidable."
Nakteti sat back down in her captain's chair. "What is the technical difficulty."
The hologram, Michael, stared at her for a long second. "Processing self-determined override. Weighted bias table success. Authorization override accepted based on cursory examination of database and security headers."
It turned slightly and pointed at the screen. "An inflation radiation flare with an uneven forward blast wave occurred outside of scheduled and predicted burst time," a silver light highlighted the slowly moving black squares. "The anomaly protective shell was unable to deploy in time, however, examination of data shows that deployment would not have changed the outcome."
"The inflation radiation burst was uneven, causing the expansion of space to exceed the safety margins of the megastructure's integrity," Chuck said.
The hologram nodded. "Precisely. That caused the blast shield to fail. Additionally, the intensity and long profile waveform of some of the doubling radiation caused uneven expansion beyond intensity irregularities."
The hologram moved back to look at Chuck and Nakteti. "A chronotron cascade occurred during the doubling phase, the energy was not uniform and the protective shell was damaged, which prevented the standard system smoothing."
"What about backup and emergency systems?" Nakteti asked.
"Currently, temporal stabilization is occurring," Michael answered. "The length of this process cannot be computed with currently possessed algorithms. Additionally, 98% of all computing power and storage is offline due to temporal and distance disruptions. This severely hampers the early stages of recovery."
"Can the facility recover?" Nakteti asked, staring at the dark inner shell of the SUDS.
"While unscheduled and having caused extensive damage, this type of event was predicted and redundant systems were manufactured as well as protocol designed," Michael said. "However, it must be reiterated, the estimated time of completion of even early repairs and stabilization is currently beyond my capabilities to estimate."
"Do you need assistance?" Nakteti asked.
The full weight of the ritualistic phrase laid itself on her shoulders.
The hologram held still for a moment. "Analyzing databank entries of listed skillsets of the four crewmembers. Estimating the capabilities of the starship registered as It Tastes Sweet," the hologram closed its eyes for only a second or two. "You possess an advanced nanoforge system as well as advanced creation engines. While it is not possible for me to replicate technological advances without a full oversight committee inquiry board and super-majority approval then signed off by a supermajority of scientists with a rating of at last Advanced PhD in relevant fields and then extensive field testing, it is with emergency parameters to request assistance in manufacturing parts within strict tolerances."
Nakteti looked at Magnus and Surscee, then at Chuck. "What do you think?"
Magnus just shrugged. Surscee pursed her lips, thought for a moment, then nodded. Chuck frowned.
"Beyond manufacturing, what assistance is required?" he asked.
"There are no available human supervisors for any mobile robotic automaton repair systems," Michael said.
"You mean, robots," Chuck said.
"Affirmative. Without human supervisors, the MRARS cannot operate, as all robots have Fourth Law dictates that require direct human supervision when undertaking any task that can be predicted to effect human life," Michael said.
"The Fourth Law was repealed almost eight thousand years ago," Chuck argued.
"Any modification to software, firmware, or hardware must be approved by a specially appointed boards of inquiry reporting to the proper oversight committees which must then be approved by Overproject leads," Michael said stuffily.
"All right," Nakteti said. "How long will it take the four of us to complete repairs?"
"Assuming standard union work periods, break periods, rest periods, and upkeep periods," Michael paused. "Accounting for time dilation effects, temporal instability banding," he paused again. "Chronotron cascade resonance," another pause. "Chrono-radiation hazards," another pause. The hologram looked up. "Total repair of all systems. Two thousand, four hundred, sixty two years, eight months, sixteen days, four hours, with a 3% margin of error."
Magnus's eyes opened wide and Surscee coughed.
"How about, minimum needed for automated systems to repair the systems?" Nakteti asked.
"Six hundred forty five years, three months, seventeen days."
Nakteti shook her head. "What's the biggest problem?" she asked.
"Chronotron radiation as well as chronotron cascade resonance has caused a rare effect where sections of the system exist at multiple points in time. This prevents even accurate estimation of repairs, as which time period will be depending upon how the repairs are carried out," the hologram said.
Magnus frowned. "What about the inner shell. What time periods is it stuck at?"
Michael closed his eyes then opened them. "Just prior to reactor startup to energize the master control systems of the inner layer. During a twelve thousand year period of unrepaired system damage. Post-repair during master system processing."
"What about the personnel present during those times?" Chuck asked.
"All personnel reached safe areas," Michael said.
"All right. How long to stabilize the chronotron cascades?" Nakteti asked. "If we just supervise and build parts with the Sweet's creation engine?"
The Arch-Angel closed its eyes. "Two years, six months, eight days, fifteen hours, with a 1.5% margin for error."
"What happens then?" Chuck asked.
"The chronotron cascade temporal layering will cease, allowing the intertwined temporal layering to untwine. Without assitance, this would take roughly six thousand years, relative to the anomaly," Michael said.
Nakteti closed her eyes. "All right. What's first?"
Michael made a tossing motion and Nakteti saw that there was a header ID file waiting for her approval in her datalink.
"Once you are all properly assigned as Senior Maintenance Personnel, the first task will be to stabilize the space elevator leading down from the ship docking facility," Michael stated. "This will require you to fabricate temporal disruption and stabilization systems in order to first cause a blanket disruption, which will cause the temporally intermixing to separate. Then a stabilization facility must be manufactured in order to keep the the separation from recombining. The facilities themselves, using the Sweet's creation engine will take some five months to produce and assemble, one month to charge and deploy."
Magnus moved over to the computer and tapped at the holographic keyboard for a moment. "Can I get the specification of the temporal stabilizers and disruptors?"
Michael nodded, making a tossing motion.
Magnus looked at the display for a long moment, the cathode ray tube flickering slightly as he worked.
"These facilities are massive, but severely outdated," Magnus said, shaking his head. "I can get the same result with a man portable pylon that combines both operations."
Michael frowned. "Current chronotron and temporal scientific knowledge requires the facilities that were given to you."
"And they're eight thousand years of warfare out of date," Magnus said. He shook his head. "I could set down a pylon sixteen inches wide, one meter tall, with an onboard zero-point chronotron reactor, and get twice the area of effect and sixteen times the required power," he made a tossing motion.
Michael stared into space for a moment. "I cannot authorize this equipment to be utilized."
"Can you forbid it?" Nakteti asked.
Michael shook his head. "No. According to your historical databases the Confederacy is the inheritor of all controls and direction of the Third Republic and the United Nations of Sol. As this is approved for Confederacy military and scientific work, while I am unable to manufacture or deploy such equipment, it is within acceptable technological progression."
"Translation: We can make and deploy them, he can't tell us to," Surscee said, breaking her silence. "Can you assist with optimal placement?"
Michael nodded.
"Well, at least the Second Precursor War led to lot of advancements with temporal protections and systems," Chuck said. He shook his head. "We'll need to wear combat armor with temporal stabilization."
Nakteti nodded. She looked at Michael. "Are there any personnel that can assist us?"
"Repair Team Three has suffered an equipment malfunction due to the expansion radiation chronotron cascade overlapping their temporal fix point," Michael said. "Currently, four members remain."
"What kind of equipment malfunction?" Nakteti asked.
"Rather than creating a stable temporal field around them, as well as 'speeding' them up relative to 'outside' reality, the equipment underwent a malfunction that placed them in the middle of a layer disruption that slows time down the closer it gets to the team member," Nakteti said.
Magnus snorted. "I've seen that before."
"As have I," Surscee said. She laughed. "There's always someone that wants to play Temporal Warrior and ends up stuck in their own field."
"There is no way to free them," Michael said stiffly.
Magnus smiled. "Maybe not for you. My twin sister and I can get them free if you can lead us to them."
"You will need to stabilize the ship berthing dock first, then the space elevator cable and surface fixator facility," Michael said.
Magnus shrugged. "We better get on it," he said. He looked at his sister. "Mind tweaking the templates," he looked at Michael. "Any data you can give me on Team Three?"
"They are Chronotronic Knights of the Third Republic of Aligned Planets Combined Military Forces - Special Projects," Michael said. "They are currently engaged with phasic entities."
"Shades," Magnus snorted. He looked at Surscee. "Make sure the armor is prepped for shade combat."
Surscee nodded.
"Welp, lets get this show on the road," Nakteti said. "We'll stabilize the berthing facility, then the space elevator, then we'll see what we can do about grabbing this Team Three."
Michael just watched with ancient eyes.
Nakteti stared at the overlapping gold rings that were slowly pulsing. Inside each ring were more and more shades, until the four Terrans in the middle could barely be seen. She looked over at Magnus, who was finishing setting up the equipment that would be needed to disrupt the temporal resonance fields, banish the Shades, and prevent the weaponsfire from killing Nakteti, Surscee, and Magnus.
"Ready?" Nakteti said.
"This is probably our best bet," Magnus said. He walked over and tapped the wall, where "YOU HAVE BEEN UNDER TEMPORAL COMPRESSION! WE SAVED YOU! STOP SHOOTING!" was written in pulsing day-glo blue paintstick.
"All right, let's get under cover," Nakteti said. She led the way, Magnus pulling up the rear and spooling out wire.
The three went inside the small building, made of Niven-Ring material. The macroplas was thick enough to shrug any weapon hits according to Magnus and Nakteti trusted his judgement.
"You wanna do the honors?" Magnus asked, holding out the clacker.
"I'd be honored," Nakteti said. She hefted it, looked out the window, and squeezed the clacker three times.
There was a deep "BAWOING!" sound, accompanied by a thrum.
The temporal banding exploded in gold light. The shades tattered away with a scream.
Shots from blaze rifles peppered the area. Skeletons dropped to the ground.
The quartet let off the triggers and looked around. One pointed at the wall where Magnus had left them a message.
"I've decrypted their armor's communication," Chuck said.
"Let's not panic them. Is atmosphere capable of carrying sound?" Nakteti asked.
"No. You'll have to use suit radios," Chuck said. "I've already loaded up a lexicon to translate your speech."
"Magnus, you take the lead. I look too alien for them to trust me," Nakteti said.
Magnus nodded and led the way.
Rifles were pointed at Magnus, who stopped and held up his hands.
"You guys have been frozen about ten thousand years," Magnus said. "Your equipment malfunctioned. It took us two months to get to you and free you."
Nakteti clenched her gripping hands tightly.
This was the critical moment.
Nobody was sure if the members of "Team Three" were Maddened or not.
The rifles lifted up.
"And you are?" one asked.
"Magnus Oathsworn. An explorer who managed to find this place after a long and arduous journey," the Terran said. "We have been asked by the Arch-Angel Michael to help make repairs in order to restore the system to working order so that record processing can continue."
"What do you think, think we can trust him?" one of them asked. Nakteti's visor highlighted which one.
"He's got Arch-Angel Maintenance ID tags," another said.
"Take us to Michael," the one who had initially spoke said. Nakteti could tell it was an order.
"Remember, Nakteti, these are Combine soldiers and the Combine became the Imperium," Surscee said softly. "Be wary."
"Tell them we'll lead them," Nakteti said.
"Michael is operating out of the Atlantis Control Center," Magnus said. He turned and walked away, making a motion. "Follow or do not. While we can use your assistance to repair this great work, I will not compel the stubborn to my will."
"He talks strange," one said.
"Armor says he's using a lexicon. He's speaking a language that's different that Republic Standard," the first one said.
"If he betrays us, we can snuff him," one said.
Nakteti narrowed her eyes.
"He's not authorized to be here as far as I know. We'll fine out what's going on, then we'll make our decision," the apparent leader said.
Nakteti stepped out.
"What is that?" the leader asked.
"A Tnvaru. The ship captain that brought us here," Magnus said.
Surscee stepped out.
"That's my twin sister," Magnus said. He motioned. "Come, it is nearly three miles to the mat-trans system that we have to use to move between layers."
"Ugh, I hate mat-trans," one said.
"It always feels like there's someone watching me, someone in there with me," another said.
"You're just paranoid," the leader said. "Keep tight. Maintain radio silence till we figure out what's going on."
Nakteti just stayed silent.

2023.05.31 01:13 cerebrospynal UFO / surveillance orb

TLDR: in 2002 i was looking at Mars in the night sky. clouds began to obstruct it. then something resembling Mars came down through the clouds and suddenly appeared to be a small drone or flying orb hovering above me maybe 100 or 200 feet away. then went back above the clouds and when the clouds parted i was just looking at Mars again. i have non-paranoid reasons to believe i was under surveillance and i think this was some kind of "eye in the sky" secret spy tech.
I'm using the "Sighting" flair instead of "Drug Induced" bc i wasn't under the influence when i had the sighting. the sighting was just one event of many during much high weirdness i experienced during this time in my life. the drug induced NDE is interesting and i give an account of it, but the orb sighting fits more with the content of this sub i guess?
I posted recently about the one other thing i'd call an "exerperience" i've had which was like an out of body experience / astral body experience that i had always mistaken for a lucid dream until i connected the dots. The experience i want to recount here has many parts but i'll just focus on what seems most relevant for this sub.
in 2002 i was 19 and living with my then gf in Southern California. i found a website selling 5-methoxy-DMT from a Chinese lab. i ordered some. it looked very pure even just by appearance. a fine white crystalline powder with a very slight blue hue that made it look even more white somehow. i inhaled vapor from it in a glass pipe and immediately felt the gnostic experience of dying. by that i mean i wasn't afraid that my body was dying. i had the direct knowledge that what i was experiencing was what it feels like when the soul leaves the body. my jaw opened involuntarily and it felt like my soul was evacuating out my mouth, nostrils, and eyes. i was overwhelmed with the most extreme terror and absolute bliss all at once. so there's that, the gnostic awareness imparted on me that there is absolutely a soul, and there is continuity of consciousness after death, and it was actually the most familiar sensation i'd ever felt. i just knew by feeling it, without any shred of doubt whatsoever, that i'd felt this countless times before when i've died in countless past lives, and this is the soul returning to the spirit realm.
So that's kind of the first part, although this obviously isn't anything paranormal per se since it was clearly a drug induced psychedelic experience. i mention the effects of the drug only because they were practically paranormal themselves. not exactly paranormal, but such a vivid and different kind of NDE. for about 5 minutes i knew exactly what it felt like to enter the spirit realm. just a flash. but gnostic certainty.
This experience set off a whole host of paranoid ideas and intense, like..., "spiritual anxiety." I was intensely paranoid about what i'd done to my karma or soul by "cheating" and getting a glimpse of the great mystery of death, and life / the universe & everything, by this chemical shortcut. not by yoga, or a lifetime of spiritual discipline. just a chemical. so anyway, my mind is kind of reeling for days and days after. pondering endless, very specific, and very bizarre karmic consequences that i might face.
The real relevant "experience" for this sub, though, is what I saw one night when i went on our back patio. this was a time when Mars was closer to Earth than it had been for hundreds of years. it was a bright brown dot in the night sky. it was a pretty clear night, and i looked up at the night sky admiring Mars. then clouds obscured it but i saw it... again... only it was descending THROUGH the clouds! this obviously wasn't Mars. it appeared to be hovering maybe 100 or 200 feet above me. it was orb shaped, and looked like it had a visor shaped lens cover that could move up to reveal the lens or close to cover it. truly an "Eye in the Sky." It's like it just got a closeup look at me and then hovered back into the clouds. when the clouds parted there was Mars again, stationery in the night sky as it should be.
I was pretty confident (not even paranoid about this actually, surprisingly) that i was under surveillance for purchasing this technically legal at the time but gray-area kind of "research chemical" online. i wasn't concerned about getting in legal trouble. there were several signs of surveillance, and operatives even actively messing with my head "revealing themselves" to me in a couple different instances, kind of. i got the distinct impression that they just wanted to observe me, and see if they could induce psychosis or paranoia or something, knowing that my mind was reeling after the experiences i'd had on the drug. i figured they must know the effects of this drug well and want to see how it might change my behavior, etc.
Years later when i went to college i was curious to look up research chemical vendors again and one of the websites i found had a splash page that showed digital art of an alien planet landscape, then an animation enters from the side of the screen. AN ORB WITH AN EYE AND SHUTTER JUST LIKE I SAW. only it had an alien eye in it. it just floats in from the side of the screen, kind of blinks or winks at you, and then goes off-screen again.
I'm pretty well convinced that government surveillance explains all of this. the only shady or weird kind of thing was this orb shaped drone thing that was probably some kind of secret spy tech. i guess it's possible ETs took an interest in observing me while i was using this powerful and mysterious drug too?

2023.05.31 01:13 StudyUseful5681 Outdoor dining is "Crumbling"

Not sure why the mods took down my earlier post.
Looks like the Bee saw my earlier post.
They call attention to the fact that, for the most part, people enjoyed outdoor dining during the pandemic. Today, the program that's supposed to make outdoor dining permanent is failing.
Personally, I'm dismayed that the Al Fresco program is inefficient, and I consider it a failure. The only thing it has accomplished is removing parklets and outdoor dining from the grid. Summer is here, and I would really love to enjoy dining on R street, or in the pop-up near Beast and Bounty. And who doesn't love the Rind's parklet? While I understand the need to change it to be ADA compliant and what not, its unfortunate that the Al Fresco program is prohibitively expensive to allow for the Rind to retro-fit their parklet. From the article:
"Yet $20,000 won’t cover retrofitting all patios to meet city codes. That’s one reason The Rind is removing its L Street patio, owner Sara Arbabian said, along with the strain it put on her small restaurant’s kitchen staff. To be compliant with the city’s new requirements, The Rind’s lifted wood patio needed a ramp or wheelchair lift, better drainage and to ensure that their structure didn’t stress the roots of a large tree that sat in the center. It’d cost $30,000-$40,00 to renovate on top of sunk costs".
The article mentions that some restaurants have managed to make the Al Fresco program work for them, but these restaurants seem like exceptions to the rule. At this point in the year, it's mind-boggling to me that we are still this far behind and no new parklets have been completed. Of the 85 restaurants that applied for the initial temporary grants, only one of them has applied for the formal program. This makes me think that the new program is prohibitively expensive.
Serious reform is needed here IMO.

2023.05.31 01:06 Obituary1316 Troy M10A1 lower, upper compatibility

I recently bought an lower that I'm trying to find an upper for. I know its not compatible with something like an Aero Precision M5/ AR308. It has slanted geometry near its buffer tube, its looking like I'd need an Armalite or Stag-10 upper. Would I have fit issues if I went with an Armalite/ Stag?
Tried doing research on it, not much info.

Thank you

2023.05.31 00:55 MaleficentBobcat9059 23 [M4F] CST/Anywhere- Looking for international connections

Hello, I’ve always had a bit of a fixation. I love foreign women, women from places like North Africa, Japan, Russia, Australia. Not sure why, I just love hearing about different cultures and ways of life, and I have found myself nearly exclusively romantically attracted to foreign women. I’m an American myself. About me, I’m tall, very much an academic at heart. I’m in great shape, I walk about four kilometers a day, I have broad shoulders, and muscular thighs. I’m looking for something long term, leading to a connection and children. I am happy to work and help provide financially, and I love taking care of children, I have a 3 year old cousin I adore. I play pc games, I read a lot, mostly nonfiction, and I am obsessed with American football. I am very well-read and I keep up with current events. I would describe myself as a rational, considerate, and compassionate person. What I would like from you is kindness, intelligence, and curiosity. I like different qualities in different people so I am very flexible in regards to the traits I admire. I would prefer you to be at least somewhat physically fit, I enjoy hiking and going to museums and do active things and would enjoy your company doing that. I’m happy to answer any questions if needed

2023.05.31 00:21 SheenaMalfoy Between Sizes? Wrong shape? Unsure where to go from here.

I've got 5 bras here since trying my AFTF size, and none of them are great fits. I've learned some things, but others just confuse me and I don't really know what brands/styles of bras to attempt from here. Any sort of help would be appreciated.
The first two bras were from my first (and now only) attempt at going to a fancy bra boutique. To say I was unimpressed would be an understatement, it was painful. The attendant, after asking whether I preferred molded or unmolded bras (told her it literally didn't matter as long as the wires didn't hurt), literally only gave me molded bras to try, insisted that if the wire was hurting I needed a bigger band, ignored all attempts at my own inexperienced fit checks (the cups were frequently buckling just above the wire, the tops of the cups were empty, and ALL of them hurt my ribs) and then pressured me into buying a pair of painful bras I have worn maybe twice. I literally cried after I left this place. I'm never going back, and the whole endeavour put me off even attempting to find ABTF for over a year.
Marie Jo L'Aventure 32F. At first glance and proper posture it looks okish, but with the slightest forward tilt of the shoulders you can see the empty cup space at the top and towards the outsides. The wires HURT. I got a 1 inch extender added to the band, which makes it less painful (but not painfree! ugh) but also causes the gore to not tack. You can see the cup buckling just above the wire. There is so much empty space it isn't even funny.
Marie Jo ???? 32F. All the same fit problems as above. Also has an extender. Also doesn't tack. Also has empty space. Also buckles just above the wire (less so, but it still happens). There's a reason I never wear these.
Fast forward a year and I finally find the courage to try again. Find myself in a small bra shop in a mall, try on well over 50 bras to the immense frustration of the solo staff lady on hand, but at least this time the lady has enough sense to let me decide fit for myself. Also, unmolded bras, finally! Left with two that didn't hurt and would at least halfway fit.
Gossard ???? 32E. Finally a wire that doesn't hurt! Could do without all the frilly bits but at least we're getting somewhere. Still have problems with empty tops/outsides of cups but it is significantly less so here. However, my center-full boobage is on full display as I am simultaneously quadboobing AND not filling the cup, depending on where you look. The empty space is best seen in the top-down view. The gore tacks, yay! Of the five, this is the best fit I've got.
Montelle Intimates ???? 32E. Second bra that doesn't hurt, and the only other one out of everything I tried to do so. Fit issues are more extreme here, however. The wires sits on my boobs centrally, pushing the gore outward. Quad boobage is somehow more severe, though I think I failed to image that properly. (It's absolutely ridiculous when I push the gore back onto my chest for instance.) The empty cup space at the top is also worse, but I don't know how much of that is because parts of my boob are pushing the wires out instead of sitting in the cup. This is, however, the most comfortable wired bra I've got, for what it's worth. The Gossard I can still feel the wires there, this one the wires almost (but not quite) seem to "disappear."
And that was it for a while as money became an issue, (very nearly a whole other year) until very recently where I had some more to spend and got a Panache Envy secondhand on braswap. I thought where the Es were giving me quad boobage I should go back up to the F, and that the molded bras were problematic cause of their molding. I was wrong.
Panache Envy 32F. These cups are clearly way too big. Also the gore goes extremely high, and while it was tacking it felt like it was pressing into my chest, on the verge of painful but certainly not comfortable. (Ditto for the wires as a whole: uncomfortable for the 2 mins I wore it, possibly painful over an entire day? Not gonna try and find out, though.) The wires also feel way too wide? Like the Gossard feels like the wires actually follow my boob. This thing was practically in my armpit. However, the immediate projection at the bottom of these cups was actually very appreciated.
Where exactly do I go from here? I think it's clear that I am closer to the E cup than the F, however shape mismatch is still a big issue. I know I am rather projected, and VERY center full, but these fittings are making me think I'm more bottom full than even? Is there something else going on I can't see? What bras fit those shape requirements, cause the Envy is the supposed starting point and that kinda failed spectacularly?
I also have very little bodily padding, and a bigger issue than the fit itself is the wires, which are very often painful to me, digging into my ribs at (usually) roughly 2 oclock and 10 oclock, using clock directions (straight ahead being 12, obviously). Any suggestions to make wires not hurt would be greatly appreciated. In the meantime, I'm going back to my pile of unwired sports bras and the two wired ones that don't hurt me, kthxbye.
Underbust loose: 31.5"
Underbust fit: 30"
Underbust tight: 28.5"
Bust standing: 36.5"
Bust forward: 38"
Bust laying: 36.5"
ABTF recommendation: 32E/F
Edit: I should add that I am very confident in the 32 inch band size, 30 is so small I can barely close it (and can't breathe) and 34 the gore never tacks. I have done the upside down and backwards thing and 32 is the one for me. But within the 32 inch band, most wired bras just flat out hurt, regardless of fit in other manners. I don't know exactly what's going on here. The cup size though? Well, none of it seems to fit quite yet. I'll take whatever advice you can give.

2023.05.31 00:19 Raymond_Towers Buck Rogers Plots And Villains

Buck Rogers is a major category in my e-book Space Sci Fi Plots And Villains, including the 80s TV show, the comic strips from the 30s, and the original fiction by P. F. Nolan. The book is a resource for RPG players, writers and fans who'd like inspiration for their own sci fi projects, with random tables for character names and breakdowns for the plots and villains in each episode. The book is available at Pay What You Want on Drive Thru RPG. A sample entry is included below.
Wiki Episode Description, Episode 15: Nearing his 534th birthday, Buck is feeling homesick for the 20th-Century and Wilma plans a surprise party to cheer him up. To lure Buck out of his apartment and allow Wilma to set up the party, Dr. Huer assigns him to escort a psychic courier named Raylyn Derren to New Detroit. At the city, an assassin named Cornell Traeger, who has a mutant power to alter molecular structures, plans to kill Dr. Huer as revenge for sending him on a disastrous mission 15 years ago. Traeger has since spent the time in prison on an alien planet and blames Huer for his suffering. Traeger abducts the courier to find out where Huer is, and Buck must stop him before he can carry out the killing.
  1. SE01EP15 Happy Birthday, Buck
Plot: A hate-filled enemy is killing everyone in his way, as he hunts down a target who happens to be a good friend of the protagonist. The protagonist does not know who the enemy is, but he is concerned for his friend’s life, and tags along when a security courier is sent to deliver important information. The protagonist and courier are attacked and questioned, and give away the location of the target. The protagonist must escape his captors and hurry to reach his friend before the killer does. Meanwhile, the friend and others are planning a surprise party for the protagonist.
Villains: The villain is a hate-filled person who has it in for the protagonist, or a friend of the protagonist. This villain coerces another person who specializes in psychiatry and delving into the human mind, who can extract crucial information and erase memories of them committing real crimes. The psychiatrist has access to a couple of thugs who are familiar with security roles and can pass for cops or guards. Saving the best for last is this: the villain has the power to turn an organic or artificial item into another substance, such as people into silicone, or credits into precious gems, but the villain chooses to use these powers only for… revenge!

2023.05.31 00:18 JDSmith3711 Looking to Ditch Inkarnate and Move On

I've been using Inkarnate for over two years now. It was a great map-making software that fit my needs, and I've been working on a detailed world map for my worldbuilding since I started using Inkarnate. Everything was great until recently. My map was corrupted server side, and now I cannot continue working on my map without starting over. Support was unhelpful, offering only words. After losing nearly two years of work, I can't trust them to ensure this won't happen again.

I'm looking to switch over to Photoshop or an alternative in order to create a map without the worries of map corruption. If anyone has any tips on how I would go about this, it would be appreciated. Also, if anyone else has any of their own "horror stories" dealing with map-making software like Inkarnate, I would love to hear them.

2023.05.31 00:12 Envizon [TotK] Photos of the Kingdom: Filling the Stable Frames

So I decided to complete all 14 of the Stable painting side quests recently after a couple of them piqued my curiosity, one in particular the most, and had a lot of fun doing so (also helped that I needed a chill break from exploring). I decided to chronicle my adventures here. Pictures are in order of the chronicles and are labeled as well (cause I can’t figure out how to put photos among the text, if I can at all lol). This will be a tad long, but nonetheless, I hope you enjoy :)
(Also, possible spoilers contained herein, especially if you want to do these side quests yourself as some of them do require some tracking down/light puzzle solving, I’ll try to stay as spoiler free as possible, you’ve been warned)

Outskirt Stable

This was one of the first painting side quests I did. Embry wanted a picture of one of the many cherry blossom trees in Hyrule, and I immediately knew which one to get them. I headed to Satori Mountain with my Purah Pad (am I the only one who thinks that name is kinda dumb and wish they stuck with Sheikah Slate?) and made my way to the large cherry blossom tree there, and waited for the perfect moment after I found my angle. I wanted to give this one some form of reverence given it’s connection to the late Satoru Iwata, and feel I did a pretty good job. I thought sunset gave the picture a very nice ambiance overall, as well as making the colors really pop, and also fit thematically given the context. This is one of my favorites.

Riverside Stable

Ember wanted a picture of the Great Goddess Statue in the Forgotten Temple. Now, I’m not sure if you can complete this one until you restore the statue from being toppled (I’d assume so) as I had already completed that side quest. My first attempt was a little drab due to the poor lighting, so I decided to liven things up with some giant brightbloom seeds (and to my surprise they are still there many hours of adventuring later). That made the statue pop and gave it more depth, as well as gave it an ethereal, inviting glow, which I feel fits given it’s apparent status as the Mother of all Goddess Statues. This is another one of my favorites.

New Serenne Stable

Sprinn wanted a picture of the geoglyph that’s right outside the stable. Easy enough. I made a balloon platform and rode it as high as I needed to in order to get the entire thing in one shot. Not too much to this one, other than getting a good time of day (about noonish) and finding the right spot to launch the balloon so that the whole thing was in the shot and wasn’t obstructed (by the balloon).

Tabantha Bridge Stable

Dabi wanted a photo of the Ancient Columns nearby the stable at sunrise. Easy enough, right? Well, anybody that’s gone near there knows that there is a Flame Gleeok who has decided to make them their home, and it’s right in the way of the portion Dabi wants photographed. No getting around this one, so I donned my fully upgraded Fierce Deity set and got to work (this isn’t the first Gleeok I’ve fought, that goes to a certain Gleeok down in the depths, so they aren’t as intimidating anymore). Once it was dispatched, I found my angle and waited for sunrise. The photo itself, I found a tad boring (even if it is pretty), but the work to get it made it rewarding.

Snowfield Stable

Varke wanted a photo of “the giant bird with wings stretched wide in the Hebra Mountains” and gives you a clue on how to find it (BotW vets should know this one as well). This one was pretty easy to capture, the only annoyance came from the constant shadows of clouds/sky islands that decided to pop up and ruin the shot.

Woodland Stable

Kish wanted a picture of a Goron soaking in a hot spring, but he wants a very specific one. Finding them is easy enough, especially if you’ve traipsed around Death Mountain and Goron City enough. Once again, found my angle and waited for the best lighting to capture it. There’s something about this one that makes me chuckle. The expression on the Goron’s face and the framing just seem to imply some deeper meaning, other than an old Goron just soaking their worries and pains away.

Foothill Stable

Ozunda wanted a picture of the giant Daruk (and others) sculpture that adorns Goron City (only place to get two Stable paintings, the lucky Gorons!), so I set out for it once more. Finding a good angle proved a little tricky, but waiting for the right lighting was easy. Unfortunately, you can’t include Darunia’s giant mug in this photo as well (sorry Ocarina of Time fans). Also, something about the glowing eyes just makes this sculpture a tad creepy. Ah well.

East Akkala Stable

Rudi wanted a picture of the nearby lake that, when it fills completely, looks like an Octorock (debatable lol). Again, another simplistic one, and thankfully it immediately started raining when I got close so that the lake would fill (believe this is intentional). Only bummer about this one is that there isn’t really a good vantage point nearby to get a better shot, minus the nearby hill leading up to the stable.

Wetland Stable

Lawdon wanted a picture of the ring ruins that have scattered around Kakariko Village, specifically the main, large ruin that sort of crowns the village. I decided to take the picture from the west, back behind the village (as I thought it made a better background), and waited for the sun to rise enough so that it would be kind of shining through the ring. This was a fun one, as there are several angles you can come from, so there are may different interpretations you can photograph.

Dueling Peaks Stable

Tasseren wanted a picture of “Hyrule’s finest sunrise” looking out towards the Necluda Sea and Lurelin Village, and mentions heading to the peak of Tuft Mountain for the shot. Simple enough. I headed there and waited for sunrise, and snapped the picture when it was the most pleasing to the eye. Yet another simplistic one, but it’s such a nice photo that I can forgive it.

Lakeside Stable

Anly wanted a photo of Floria Falls on a clear day, which they specify because it storms so often in the Faron region. Another simpler one, but thankfully when I got the request, it was a good time of day and was actually clear out (but not for long). So I ran out and snapped the picture from Floria Bridge. Again, it’s a pretty nice photo, so I can forgive the simplicity of it.

Highland Stable

Padok wanted a photo of the fabled giant white stallion that is nearby the stable. If you remember where Malanya was in BotW, this one isn’t too bad (other than a Rare Stone Talus that can pop up along the way). Once again, waited for the opportune moment, which was made slightly more difficult since I was photographing a wild animal (they were right when they said, “never work with animals”). I got a decent photo, I think, and the premise lends itself to many different interpretations (especially if you can take the horse and photograph it anywhere, which I didn’t experiment with). This one was pretty fun, mostly for that random element.

Closed Gerudo Canyon Stable

Piaffe wanted TWO photos, the greedy ex-stable owner (I mean, their stable is closing, so I can empathize), and asks for both a picture of “smiling Spectacle Rock” and the Forgotten Sword in the Gerudo Highlands (again, BotW vets should be familiar with this landmark). I’ll be honest, the smiling Spectacle Rock photo had me puzzled (and the hint you’re given is super vague), and I eventually caved and consulted a walkthrough. In order to get this photo, you have to go to a specific point on a sky island in the East Gerudo Sky Archipelago and look down at Spectacle Rock, at which point two smaller pieces form the “nose” and “mouth”. Yeah, very obvious. Also, it made it harder to get a good picture since the surface is culled in some way while you’re in the sky, and the features become muddled (I’d assume it’s just rendered in a lower resolution and slightly fogged until you dive past a certain height, at which point it reverses). The Forgotten Sword was also a bit of a downer, since we already had to go photograph it in BotW to get the Sand/Snow Boots (I don’t remember which one). The only thing of note is that there is a Frost Gleeok hanging out next to it, but given that I hadn’t upgraded my Snowquill armor and Snow Boots much yet (and didn’t have any cold resistance food), I just snuck up, grabbed the picture, and then nope’d out of there. Overall, these two were slightly disappointing given the esoteric and low quality nature of one and the familiarity of the other, and I’d have much preferred some other landmarks in the Gerudo Desert get the spotlight. Oh well.
Which brings us to our final, and my favorite, picture of them all.

South Akkala Stable

Dmitri wanted a photo of the Unity Bell in Tarrey Town. Easy enough. I ran on over and took my picture, and was content, until I came upon a spark of inspiration. I suddenly remembered that there were some cutouts of Hudson back behind their house, and took some inspiration from a post I saw where someone had fused them onto some shields and adventured around Hyrule with them (I don’t remember who made the post or where I saw it, forgive me! If anyone has the info, feel free to link it in a comment and I’ll edit this to give them some love). Given Addison’s dumbfounded bewilderment every time you help them stand a Hudson Construction sign, I knew what I had to do. I grabbed the four cutouts and placed them by the Unity Bell. It’s a great picture, but I knew I could do better. So I took the rail down to the construction site below Tarrey Town (because I forgot there were some supplies by the land bridge that connects Tarrey Town, oops), grabbed some supplies, headed back up, and got to work. The resulting picture is astounding, truly a work of art. The only thing that would make it better is if there was a way to make Hudson’s eyes glow without obstructing the cutouts (and I’m sure there is, I was just too lazy to find it in the moment). Needless to say (again), this one is my absolute favorite, and I truly feel a sense of pride when I gaze upon it, knowing that I had created such a fitting tribute to all the dumb, crazy, fun, and out right wacky things we can do in this game.
And there you have it! I hope you found some enjoyment in this chronicling of my adventures filling the Stable frames. Again, I had a lot of fun doing this and I hope it shows, and I knew I wanted to share it with all of you. Now go out and have fun exploring!

2023.05.30 23:59 Icy-Condition-3187 A Little Late But...My List For This Years Eurovision!

It's been a few weeks since Eurovision and today I rewatched it again a final time for my annual rankings. My thoughts on this year's contest are mixed - Loreen had a good track, but I still had Finland as the winner right up to the end.
Now my opinions on the contest have changed considerably - what did I think for the final time?
This list is based on my own personal observations and listening expierence. This will be for the final only and not counting the countries who failed to qualify
26 - Serbia: Luke Black - Samo Mi Se Spada
I'm just going to go right out and say it - this should not have qualified. This barely makes a coherent song. Luke mumbling into the microphone, whilst unplugging his dancers who did nothing for 90% of the performance was felt like he was not trying.
It's not even that the song was too safe or too risky. The song was barely a song. The performance was a risky one, but the set and production design was memorable. As Graham Norton on commentary for the UK said, it looks like a 'massive soap dish'.
Somehow, Serbia got 30 points. I genuinely thought this would be a Nil Pois performance.
25 - Albania: Albina and the Klemendi Family - Duke
This was one of those performances that was a headscratcher. It was not a sad song, but it was not a fun song either. It had no direction, and having 5 singers with no discernable lead was a massive negative for me. Too many cooks situation, for sure.
It also looked like nobody actually wanted to be there? Maybe the semi finals were too hard for them and they were drained? I don't know. I was not a fan, it was boring, and directionless. But it was still better then Luke Black.
Silver linings and all.
24 - Croatia: Let 3 - Mama SC
I was lost with this song the first time around. Rewatching the performance I have to ask Croatia - did you submit a meme song? It felt like that anyway. Not much more else here.
Incredible outfits.
23 - Italy: Marco Mengoni - Due Vite
People are gonna be mad here.
Live performance? This song would be incredible. But I'm heavily against sad songs for the sake of sad songs. And I get the emotional toil Marco was going for and again, live this would have got a pop out of me for sure.
I was surprised he came 4th. I thought this was for sure one of the weaker songs of the night. Marco, I am sorry. I did see that pride flag you brought out at the beginning and I thank you for representing us, but I was not a fan of that song.
22 - United Kingdom: Mae Muller - I Wrote A Song
You wrote a song Mae that was a load of shit.
I'm sorry. As a Brit, I am truly sorry. But this was another performance I was surprised got points, but if you watched it live in person...I can see myself clapping similar to Marco. But the lyrics were unrecognisable at time, and the production was...
Too bright.
The dancers however (especially the super cute blonde one) had a lot of passion and clearly were into the performance.
21 - Poland: Blanca - Solo
You had a song without a solo.
A very catchy song, but no solo, so points deducted! Blanca can be one of the strongest characters in Street Fighter, and Blanca can also be one of Poland's babes who robbed the show.
Neither happened that night and I am a very dissapointed Street Fighter Fan and European Music fan.
20 - Lithuania: Monika Linkyte - Stay
As a Eurovision regular, I was expecting a top half performance. But this ultimately just sounded like a budget Adele.
Monika has an incredible voice, that's for sure. But at this point I was burnt out and listening to a sad song was not what I wanted. Maybe I am judging this in bias, but the backing singers however, were a big plus.
They seemed like a perfect fit for the ballad that was being played. So thank you Adele - I mean Monika!
19 - Portugal: Mimicat - Ai Coracao
Mimicat's cabernet sequel performance had potential. But ultimately it was a safe song. The samba beats, and the burlesque dance Mimi gave were of high energy, but it was nothing we have not seen before.
A few years ago, this would have been a heavy contender. At least for me.
18 - France: La Zarra -Evidemment
I will preface this by saying her music was not my cup of tea. But I did find it enjoyable! She has emotion, and she did liven up a stale crowd after one of the worst Eurovision acts in history (Luke Black), so she gets bonus points there.
Overall, it was just a tad bit too played down. This is a shame because France has been a HEAVY contender in recent years.
17 - Ukaraine: Tvorchi - Heart of Steel
The co-host of this year's Eurovision, after the war in Ukaraine prevented the winners hosting this year.
Tvorchi, for me, whilst a very visually cool performance, failed to bring what Eurovision is about - I did not feel that this was a song intended to showcase a country.
It just felt like a mass produced hip hop record to be brutally honest. Great dancing however!
Also MASSIVE props to them - minutes before they performed, their home town was invaded...that must have been tough.
16 - Cyprus: Andrew Lambrou - Break A Broken Heart
This is the first song I regret putting so low. If I saw this 10. Easily. But this was another ballad in an ESC with about 26 ballads.
Exaggerating, I know, but roll with it.
Very impressive production however, and bonus points for having no dancers. This song feels like it should have maybe one or two kicking about, so kudos for breaking cliché!
15 - Austria: Teya and Salena - Who The Hell Is Edgar?
This was admittedly an incredible opening song.
But that was all it had going for it. This felt like every 2010s pop song ever combined. Besides that stupidly catchy chorus - the best chorus not named Cha Cha Cha - it had very little else going for it. The dancers seemed muted and the stage production was as simple as it gets.
14 - Armenia: Brunette - Future Lover
I saw rumours System of a Down were offered this year's spot...and I wish they did, because this performance - whilst pretty and attractive - evoked zero feelings within me.
The song itself is ethereal, beautiful, and incredibly well formed. It just did nothing for me to label it as a standout, and just misses a top half finish.
Great rap verse however!
13 - Estonia: Alika - Bridges
Again, not something I would reach for a ticket personally. But this was a beautiful song, and the self playing piano was a nice touch. It reminded me a little of one of my favourite singers - Amy Lee of the legendary Evanescence.
But Amy Lee she is not. She had no stage presence and if I was in the crowd, I would probably fall asleep here.
Incredible dress however.
12 - Slovenia: Jokers Out - Carpe Diem
This song had no right being slept on as much as it did!
I was bopping from beginning to end, and really enjoyed the crowd's energy - they bought into this song. I just wish they played a riskier song, as this was a little safe for my liking. The singer could have done more.
11 - Czechia: Vesna - My Sister's Crown
I was confused as to what song we were going to get here. I was expecting a full folk song, and what we got was a song in the style of Ex-Wives from the musical Six.
The dancing and stage show were a little sloppy, but the individual solos of each woman really helped this song through.
I want to see them next year, I have a feeling this is not the last we shall see of them.
10 - Spain: Blanca Paloma - Eaea
Looking back at this list, I may regret putting this at 10. It was aspheric, dreamy, powerful, and the performance was strong. From the red fabric veils, to the dancers, and the inspired singing.
I wish I knew Spanish because, this song was beautiful. Reminds me of a Spanish Christina Aggulera.
9 - Belgium: Gustaph - Because of You
In recent years, Belgium have been a non factor. But this song...I heard it, and it went straight on my playlist.
It was boogie time, and I did not even care! From my first time through to the final time, I knew this would be up there. Gustaph looks dressed like he is a Las Vegas entertainer, and then you get this boppy beat, and you can't help but jive!
8 - Norway: Alessandra - Queen of Kings
This was the best pop song of the night. Alessandra poured her heart out to an incredible backing track, and some insanely talented dancers.
Yass Queen (of the Kings)!
That being said, despite being a catchy and memorable, it just fell short of a few songs...
7 - Germany: Lord of the Lost - Blood and Glitter
I really did not want to put this here, but Lord of the Lost just...fell short.
I heard Electric Callboy was gonna be this year's contender and I was so excited! Instead, we got this Ramnstein inspired band. And the song was incredible...nothing wrong with it.
But perhaps it was the wrong song. The crowd seemed tired and the applause was not as loud as some of the other heavier acts in recent years like AWS or Blind Channel.
Nonetheless, still better then last year's.
6 -Israel: Noa Kirel - Unicorn
Just narrowly missing out on the top 5 is Noa. Unicorn was a banger. Probably my favourite Israel song in recent years, and Noa is a georgous woman who has a bright future ahead of her.
I was upset there was no Unicron's - points deducted!
The dancing was on point, and Noa herself had some incredible energy. Especially the dance solo. She could have danced that entire performance herself!
5 - Sweeden: Loreen - Tattoo
This song fell off hard in relistens, but I can see why it was so good.
From the visual design to Loreen's impeccable dress sense and nails, and the emotional carriage of the lyrics...she deserved to win, but there were better songs.
I can't help but think Loreen winning was to establish the fact Abba celebrate 50 years since they won Eurovision next year...maybe a Loreen and Abba Collab, as the two most famous Sweedish acts.
4 - Moldova - Pasha Parfeni - Sorele Si Luna
I am a little biased because one of the drummers/dancers was the exact image of what I see in a guy 😍. Horniness aside, this song was EXACTLY what Eurovision is about, which is why it is a top 5 song.
It is a banger, that combines Eastern European heritage and culture with the rich lyrics and sharp sound from Pasha. The drummers energetically bouncing about, and the little Flutist being the cherry on the cake...
Any other year, this would be my winner.
3 - Switzerland: Remo Forrer - Waterguns
It was just not his night. With a voice like his, and as young as he is, he will become like his idol James Arthur for sure.
I was blown away by his performance...I want more of him. I really do. The Swiss Sweetheart really wowed me, and I really wish him the best career because holy shit, I had goosebumps everywhere!
Keep at it Remo!!
2 - Australia: Voyager - Promise
I know Voyager and I was not upset they got elected this year.
Voyager are an incredible metal band, and this poppy, proggy, banger of a hit had EVERYONE talking. I don't think a single person disliked this song. It reminded me of Night Rider in the opening moments, and then goes into this rocky, symphony that is times chaotic, and with that breakdown...
I was just very pleased with this performance. And iirc, this is Australia's best performance since joining! This was a very very kind surprise.
Which means number one is...
1 - Finland - Karrija - Cha Cha Cha
In the absence of Electric Callboy not representing Germany, I was hoping for a rocky, metal like performance with lots of energy and a memorable chorus. We nearly got that with Voyager, but Karrija stole the hearts of everyone...myself included.
Starting off low and slow, leading into a metal like chorus with the harsh vocals coming out, and the Cha Cha Cha being was a combination of Finnish metal and pop and it stole the show.
There is no doubt in my mind that he should have won this. None at all. It was perfect for Eurovision! And I am so upset for him, this was the star performance.
And when it goes back into the pop second half of the was ingenious and I have never seen anything or heard anything like that.
Robbed. For sure.
And that is my list! Let me know what you think!
