: An orange banana with square white and circular blue swirls coating its skin, with two long leaves and spirally stems resembling wings and tail fins from the end
The eater of this fruit gains the ability to summon a customizable plane that they can alter the size, shape, and structure of, making them a Plane User
: The user is able to summon a construct based around a plane that they can control in a telekinetic manner. This plane can move not just forward and turn, but even hover in place, fly backwards, flip, spin, and even stop on a dime even if moving directly downwards. The user can control their plane from anywhere they want even from whole other islands away or directly above themselves like a protective drone or pet. The user is able to open various sections of their plane such as the cockpit, emergency doors, and cargo bay and store anything they want inside of them regardless of the plane's current size, shrinking them down to the respective dimensions of the plane and being stored in places the user arranges them in Aero-morphis
: The user is able to control and reshape their plane with simple thoughts of the design, form, attributes, interior, and capabilities. This allows the user to remodel their plane for various scenarios and abilities, such as being small enough to fly around the inside of buildings and confined spaces, large and armored enough to be used against giants, stealthy and silent enough to fly undetected by security, even become more militaristic with powerful guns and explosives the user may store in their cargo and integrate into their plane. The user is able to make their plane small enough to be hide on their person and used as a responsive weapon with guns and sharp wings and revolving propellers
The user's plane can become strong enough to carry entire ships of crews and plow through whole mountains and forests with enough speed and power by simply becoming more jet-like. They can even alter the inside of their plane to suit themself and others in better comfort when cruising or fighting inside their own plane, gifting them impressive capability
Awakening: Wide Open Planes
The user is now able to create multiple planes with their own designs and capabilities as various models
, each as well being able to change in dimensions of size, shape, and interior like their first plane. This gifts the user better versatility and power with multiple planes that they can control simultaneously for coordinated attacks against multiple opponents and covering a large area.
The user is also able to integrate with their planes to control them better and even form their attributes into controllable appendages to themself and even travel between, becoming part of one to get to another in an instant, giving them even more control and awareness over their planes and safety that allows them to switch between their planes to become an unpredictable target to their opponents Drawbacks
: The user's mind will need to keep up with the conditions, locations, and responsiveness of each plane they create and any damage correlates onto themself as well even with one plane
• The user's plane can be affected by outside forces such as attacks and heavy winds, causing damage to the plane that reflects on the user, although take no actual damage/harm themself
• The user's plane can create it's own form of weaponry such as guns, bombs, and ammunition without needing to be stocked up beforehand, however that method drains the user's stamina overtime with prolonged use
• Standard Devil Fruit weaknesses apply
Techniques Hawkite Bomber
: User control their plane to unleash a rapid-fire salvo of bullets and even an explosive bomb at their designated target Wave Glider
: User makes their plane large enough to stand on or sit in and ride it silently while moving, allowing them to cross large distances quickly and safely or get out of dangerous environments. The user can utilize their plane's natural response to air-currents and observation haki to avoid incoming attacks Stealth Wing
: User transforms their plane into a large vehicle resembling a stealth-aircraft, being streamlined, black (Actually pentachromatic plating that allows them to change color depending on the light levels of their environment)
and sharply angular with the wings fins and windows. This special plane allows the user to not just avoid making sound and being smooth, but even being able to fly undetected by transponder snail and territorial sea slug signals, making this technique of the the best for espionage
• Toxcatl Slipstream
: User utilizes their stealth-plane to slash at opponents with their razor-sharp wings and fins in a serpentine movement around their bodies quickly. The flashes of color from the plane moving around quickly can even disorient opponents that see them Her-Typhoon
: User has their plane become large and broad-winged with large turbines, then fly around at high speeds in a circle to create a powerful vortex to cause massive damage. The user can add explosives to the winds for even more chaotic destruction Blast Predator
: User merges with their plane to gain the senses and direct control over their giant aerial body, then create many large machine guns, missiles, and even fire their propellers forward like boomerangs to hit their opponents with incredible firepower. The user can create a torrential force of wind from their props and thrusters to keep them opponents pinned to one place as they unleash their payload of explosive ammunition

2023.05.31 03:15 dnkroz3d A bit of fun with a different sub-plot for Mary
I thought I would test ChatGPT's powers of creativity. I always thought there should have been a different sub-plot where Mary avenges Anna by going after Mr. Green herself. This is what the AI engine came up with when I asked to write a plot line for it. I think her learning combat skills is a bit over the top and out of character, but I like it otherwise. What do you think? And what would you change?
Title: Veil of Vengeance
Lady Mary Crawley, tormented by the memories of Anna's suffering at the hands of Mr. Green, resolves to take matters into her own hands and seek the ultimate retribution. Fueled by a burning desire for justice, she embarks on a dangerous journey to London, fully committed to killing Mr. Green and ensuring he can never harm anyone again.
Cloaked in secrecy, Lady Mary assumes a new identity, leaving her family behind at Downton Abbey unaware of her true intentions. With a hardened resolve, she delves deep into the dark underbelly of London, navigating the treacherous world of criminal networks and unsavory characters who may hold clues to Mr. Green's whereabouts.
Driven by her determination, Lady Mary undergoes rigorous training, sharpening her combat skills and acquiring the tools necessary to execute her plan flawlessly. She knows that her mission comes with great risks, but her thirst for justice outweighs any fears.
As Lady Mary digs deeper into Mr. Green's underworld connections, she uncovers a labyrinthine network of corruption, implicating influential figures who have turned a blind eye to his heinous acts. The revelations only strengthen her resolve and cement her belief that eliminating Mr. Green is the only way to ensure justice for Anna and protect others from his evil deeds.
Back at Downton Abbey, the Crawley family grows increasingly concerned about Lady Mary's unexplained absence. Violet, the Dowager Countess, suspects that something is gravely wrong and launches her own investigation, determined to unravel the truth and bring Lady Mary back safely.
In the heart of London, Lady Mary's path finally intersects with Mr. Green's. In a gripping confrontation, she confronts him, her eyes burning with vengeance and a determination that cannot be shaken. With her hand steady and her heart resolute, Lady Mary carries out her plan, extinguishing the life of the man who caused so much pain and suffering.
As the life drains from Mr. Green's body, Lady Mary's world shifts, her heart heavy with the weight of her actions. She knows that she has crossed a line, forever altering her own moral compass. The consequences of her choice ripple through her soul, leaving her haunted by the darkness she has embraced.
Returning to Downton Abbey, Lady Mary is met with a mixture of relief and shock from her family, who are both grateful for her safe return and perplexed by the changed woman they now see before them. The truth about her actions eventually comes to light, and while some family members are torn, others understand the depths of her pain and the lengths she went to in seeking justice.
Lady Mary's act of vengeance casts a shadow over the tranquil halls of Downton Abbey, forever marking her and those around her. She must grapple with the moral consequences of her actions, finding solace only in the fact that she has avenged Anna and ensured that Mr. Green can never harm another innocent soul.
In the end, Lady Mary's path diverges from that of her family and the world she once knew. The price she pays for justice weighs heavy on her heart, forever altering her future and the relationships she holds dear. The veiled whispers of her actions echo through the halls, a reminder of the lengths one can go to in the name of vengeance.

2023.05.31 03:14 jeremiahthedamned Tara Reade, darling of MAGA social media is a Russian agent.
2023.05.31 03:13 Nothanks_Nospam Why "stock tips," touts, offers to share secrets, etc., are rarely "actionable" information.
There is an old saying, "It's easy for three people to keep a secret...if two of them are dead."
If, for example, Mr. F. Flintstone, ChatGPT-endorsed investor extraordinaire, forms a pretty solid and well-supported premise that the stock of Spaceley's Space Sprockets is irrationally under-priced and publishes his premise and information for all the world to see, it would no longer be the same situation for anyone. Flintstone may be the most altruistic guy in the world, who sincerely wants everyone who possibly can to share his success, but it simply cannot happen "en masse." The publication of the information changes the dynamic in innumerable ways and most likely, some will make a profit but others will lose a lot. That's just the way these things work (see GME for example). It's not Flintstone's intent or desire, but it is impossible to unring a bell, control public information, or control the actions of others in such a scenario.
As another example, let's take Mr. W. E. Coyote, a scheming little shit and shill, who decides to run yet another scam. He's always shilling this or that stock, and naturally, even a blind squirrel occasionally finds a nut so he calls a few things more-or-less correctly. When that happens, he points it out on any forum he can find (and uses sockpuppets) and offers his touting services (his "newsletter" or whatever for "insiders") for a price. Every so often, he decides to run a variation on a pump-n-dump, but because of record-keeping and various laws, he isn't planning a "Wolf of Wall Street" pump-n-dump. When he begins, he owns little or no ACME stock. He might fib a bit, buy a couple of shares, and imply he is taking a much bigger position. He touts it as the next big "secret" stock that will go to the moon. He personally touts it, encourages others to talk it up, and even sock-puppets it anywhere he can. If it works and ACME rises and volume increases, now he takes a real position, But as sorry as Mr. Coyote is, he is smart and isn't too greedy. He continues to pump ACME, and now, he is telling the literal truth about holding a large position. When he figures it has risen about as much as it can on the bullshit and hype, he sells his position (first) and announces that it has risen too much, too fast, and is now warning his "insiders" to get out. There is a good chance he buys puts (he isn't stupid enough to short it) for a little extra juice on the scheme. If ACME falls, he cites his warnings and if it continues to rise (rare, but it happens), he cites his accuracy on the call and reminds his "insiders" that he may have left money on the table, but he is always overly cautious with his advice so as to protect them. And then, he moves on to the next stock pimping scheme, having broken no laws and likely with more naive followers who pay him for bullshitting them. If he is big enough to attract attention from regulators, he simply points to the (true) facts - that he bought generally when he announced publicly that he was doing so and sold when he announced that. He also touts the inquiry as "proof" that "they" think he is dangerous for helping "the little investor" make "big money" and scores more points with his naive followers.
So, what's the bottom line? There are essentially no "good" (public) stock tips, no matter the motivation of the tipster. And most of the time, the tipster is some form of Mr. Coyote and rarely a Mr. Flintstone, because most Mr. Flintstones know that publishing the information makes it essentially useless as presented to everyone.

2023.05.31 03:12 Strong-Ad5324 My fianceè has acknowledged how her mother is a pwBPD and now after 3 years of dating and being engaged for 1, I think my fianceè may be a pwBPD
My realization is less than 24 hours here, please bear with me.
My fiancée and I have both acknowledged within a year of two of us dating that her mother has BPD. The typical traits of fear of abandonment, unstable relationships, walking on eggshells, cheated on her ex-husband, splitting, visceral reactions to inconsequential events, suicidality etc. We both acknowledged that mother has undiagnosed BPD and over the years my fiancee has developed boundaries to allow her mom to not impact her as strongly.
I disassociated how my fiancee could potentially have the same disorder as mother in law.
After proposing to my fiancee, I just viewed the conflicts between us as normal. Every relationship deals with ups and downs felt inconsequential. I bought a bike after we got engaged and my fiancèe days later told me "I'm no longer excited to get married." Speeding up to less than one month ago, my fiancèe told me "I am falling out of love with you." To then say "I am ready to get married," and "you'll be a great father." She then a couple of months back took off the ring after her birthday expectations were not met and stashed it in her drawer without communicating to me.
I have become very forgiving with what she says to me during her mood swings and I think have misunderstood what is actually happening. My inkling says that her unstable relationship with her mother may have contributed to my fiancée consistently splitting
. I have numerous scenarios where I have failed
my fiancée on several occasions, and even after apologizing it still is held against me. Even when I give a rational reason, listen to what she is saying, it's often met with more criticism and more splitting.
Just this past weekend, she told me "we're not good for each other" and I asked for clarification and she said "not in general, but right now." 2 weekends ago, we got into an argument and she said "we're toxic for each other."
I kindly requested that she be more conscious of what she says to me when she is upset. Threatening the relationship is emotionally confusing, and it sends me mixed signals. When I requested this, her response was "I can't help it, you trigger me at times." It just feels
like I am in an emotionally unstable relationship responsible for her emotions and for mine.
TL;DR - I came to the realization that my fiancee may be a pwBPD

2023.05.31 03:09 bellchenst Dev Log #0 – The Past Journey of Trials and Triumphs
| || | submitted by bellchenst to stworld [link] [comments]
Chapter 1: A Fateful Meeting and the Birth of Spatial Terminal
Our story starts in a college computer science class where Bell and Yuan first crossed paths. Drawn together by their shared love for games and coding, they admired each other’s skills and passion. Yuan was a diehard fan of simulation games, while Bell, an aspiring AI researcher, was captivated by Zelda-like open-world games rich in storytelling.
Driven by their passion and a desire to empower creators, they embarked on a journey to develop a platform that would bridge the gap between game development and creative freedom. Joined by Elijah, a full-stack software engineer they met at their college’s entrepreneurship club, the trio combined their unique talents and laid the foundation for what would become Spatial Terminal. A Very Early Version (0.0.x): Introduced Smoothed Rendering of Voxels
Chapter 2: A Community in the Making – Transforming Challenges into Opportunities
Over time, the creators and players joined forces to transform Spatial Terminal into a vibrant and supportive hub of artistic collaboration. The passion and dedication of users like Rev, Nourdan, NicDane, Ferdinand, and so many other players and creators drove the platform to new heights, inspiring countless others to join the journey. Created by Our Community Member: Johnson Marshal
Chapter 3: Rising from the Ashes – Learning from Trials and Errors
The bold decision to integrate ChatGPT into Spatial Terminal would prove to be a critical learning experience. While Bell firmly believed in the AI technology’s potential, its actual implementation was nothing short of a disaster. This ambitious attempt to revolutionize the platform backfired, leading to frustration and disappointment among the users.
However, undeterred by this setback, the developers pressed on, incorporating valuable lessons into their future endeavors. The introduction of the Spawnable System and the Material AI powered by Stable Diffusion marked a new beginning for Spatial Terminal. These successful features demonstrated the team’s resilience and commitment to innovation, irrespective of the obstacles they faced. ChatGPT-Based Terminal with Errors and Frequent Crashes
Chapter 4: A Testing Transformation – The Rebirth of Spatial Terminal
For any venture, some moments stand out as turning points. For Spatial Terminal, it was the team’s venture into virtual reality (VR) during its 0.2 version. The transition from PC to VR was a daring move, fraught with challenges, financial implications, and skepticism.
The developers grappled with difficult decisions, financial constraints, and countless trials and errors. However, clinging to their unwavering determination to succeed, Bell, Yuan, and Elijah pushed through the hardships.
Their perseverance paid off. As they pivoted back to PC development, Spatial Terminal emerged stronger, wiser, and ready to innovate. The experiences and lessons learned during the VR phase became integral to its growth, providing the foundation on which the platform now stands. Spatial Terminal on Oculus Quest 2 (0.2.x)
Chapter 5: An Ever-Expanding Universe – Embracing an Uncertain Future, Together
As Spatial Terminal continues to evolve, so does its community of creators and players. Armed with the lessons learned from their previous trials, the team now looks forward to the release of the groundbreaking Spatial Terminal: Riftwalkers and the exploration of new frontiers.
Even as the future remains uncertain, one thing is clear: the Spatial Terminal community will continue to unite, overcome adversity, and celebrate the unlimited potential of gaming and creation.

2023.05.31 03:08 Accurate_Positive_69 [found] Sonic 3D Blitz
I saw this post on the lostmedia
It discusses the now “lost” Sonic the Hedgehog fan game from sage 2020, Sonic 3D Blitz by cap45. It was hosted on a website, where anyone could play it.
The domain was lost, or something like that, and you couldn't play the game anymore. Well guess what? I found the download for it during my own search for the game! In the description of a Blue Television Games video on that very game, they put the link to a download for the game. So it’s NOT lost media anymore!
I TRIED to post this lostmedia
not too long ago, but it was taken down:
“Sorry, this post has been removed by the moderators of lostmedia
Moderators remove posts from feeds for a variety of reasons, including keeping communities safe, civil, and true to their purpose.”
I was going to reply to the original post, but it was archived.
ANYWAYS, HERE IT IS: https://www.mediafire.com/file/gzyk0ihgoukfn9sonic-3d-blitz-win32-x64.zip/file
Sonic 3D Blitz by: cap45 (According to the video)
And yes, I downloaded the ZIP and played it. It works just fine! (Extract it first, though. Obviously!)

2023.05.31 03:06 Obvious-Result6853 “What do you hope to gain out of going to the doctors”
I can’t stand people who downplay doctors. I recently fell down the stairs and the X-ray I got when it first happened showed no broken bones. This doesn’t mean no broken bones (X-rays don’t always show everything and this seems to be a fact for me at least) but they put me on a hard shoe. While the swelling has gone down, pain hasn’t and now have this blistering on the toe that’s in extreme pain (even when resting). I have chronic back pain and the toe is worse than my back. I was saying how I might go get an MRI to make sure nothing was torn or there wasn’t something else since it just feels off. My SIL chimes in with “but what do you hope to gain” and starts trying to challenge how knowing if it’s broken will change things. Ma’am. If it’s broken or something is seriously injured, it’s best to know to prevent a bigger injury. I already have a ton of issues with my feet that are rare for my age and gender, I don’t want more issues. I also don’t need this injury agitating my tarsal tunnel.
I just can’t stand how people do this. I suffer from chronic illnesses (all diagnosed and being treated) and people treat me like I’m making it all up. It’s so frustrating and what’s worse is she saw it bruised and swollen just a few days ago. I also had to get put in a hard shoe because the doctor wasn’t convinced it wasn’t but I was only at urgent care so they couldn’t do an MRI. It’s not like I’m hiding it. It’s not like this is one off and people know how much I’ve fought for my medical history.

2023.05.31 03:05 Sonically3 Does Abercrombie & Fitch still only hire "Attractive People"/expect you to wear the current style/ in seal clothes for their stores?
Hello, I applied to there store as I heard that they have changed from their former image. However I looked up the job on reddit and people from 2017 said that they still expect people to have an attractive look to fit in to the company and that you have to dress in the current style of the stores clothes. For the in style clothes does this match other higher end clothes stores or is this A&F exclusive? Please let me know what the current company culture is like as I am interested in the job but would not be a fan of the conventionally attractive people culture.

2023.05.31 03:03 AlphaArmadillo (EST) 22 M looking to form close, long-term friendships.
Hello all, I've made a post to see if I can find the right kind of people for me with similar values when it comes to forming a close and supportive friendship. I have often found it draining to have to keep messaging so many people online that I'd like to limit any potential pitfalls as much as possible when it comes to making friends online. From my experience, a lot of friendships don't seem to work out when there is not as much initiation from both sides which is something that I really value. I really appreciate direct and honest communication along with a willingness to work through things. I expect a certain amount of effort when it comes to responses. Although I tend to have higher standards when it comes to friends, I do not want that to deter others from wanting to reach out as I am quite open and understanding. I'm a 22-year-old and in my final year of college. I'm majoring in psychology as I want to be able to become a therapist/counselor and help others out where possible. Once I graduate, I am planning to pursue a master's degree in counseling. I live on the east coast side of the US and my MBTI personality type is INFJ as well. It's usually easier to mention this ahead of time but I have a physical disability that requires me to use a wheelchair.
Some of my interests and activities that I enjoy doing include playing games on pc, ps5, and switch, learning about other people and their experiences, watching videos or shows online, and voice chatting. Basically, anything where we can spend time together online in some way. A few of my favorite games are Final Fantasy 14, Xenoblade Chronicles 1-3, Persona 5, Pokemon, Skyrim, and The Witcher 3. I am also open to talking about and trying out other games. As for shows and watching videos, I do enjoy watching anime from time to time and wouldn't mind watching them with others. Additionally, if you have any suggestions or things you like to watch I would be happy to watch those as well. We could even just watch stuff on youtube which is where I usually go lol.
I'm looking for the kind of one-on-one friendship where we can message/talk about whatever is on our minds throughout the day and be able to share everyday and deeper, more meaningful conversations. I enjoy having conversations on philosophical topics, anything science or education related, asking random questions, and psychology (of course) or mental health in general. It would be great to have long-term friends who prioritize a consistent, genuinely caring friendship and who are willing to put in the same amount of effort. I want to have friendships where we can open up to each other as much as we are comfortable with and be able to check in on each other.
I'm not expecting to become great friends with everyone but I am willing to give others a fair chance. Realistically, I want to invest in just a few quality friendships. Building a good friendship takes time and I only want to have friends who are specifically looking for something long-term. As long as you are willing to show that you value building the kind of friendship that I do, that is what I care about most.

2023.05.31 03:02 c0pp3rhead 2016 Toyota Prius - A/C Issues
Since the switch from cool to hot weather, my air conditioner has been having issues. I do not know if the issue with my a/c started before it got hot. I wouldn't have noticed because it was too cold to use the a/c. However, I started to notice a possibly related issue towards the end of winteearly spring. When I started my car, I could not turn on or change the settings of my heating/air conditioning when I first started the car. The display would show only the little icon of the seated person, but no arrows indicating airflow or bars showing how hard the fans were blowing. I could not turn the a/c setting, recirculating air setting, fan speed, temperature, defrost setting, etc. on or off. The car's hvac was just off - like it was tripped out. When it was cold, turning the car off then on again fixed the issue, the heat would start, hot air would blow like normal, and all the settings could be changed and adjusted (as best I could tell when the hvac was running only in heat). If I had to hop in the car and go, the system would remain tripped out until between around 15s to 1m of the car running/driving. Sometimes it would switch on automatically, and sometimes I would have to press the Off and Auto (there is no plain 'On' button) a few times to get it going.
Now that it is hot, the a/c is having issues. The problem is that the a/c only works when the car is idling. When I first start the car, the system is still tripped out at first, just like when I was only running the heater. After restarting the car or driving for just a short time, the HVAC system will start. When the car is in motion, it blasts HOT air. Not warm air, not ambient-temperature air, hot air almost like it's venting air straight from the motor. And it's not just when the system is On. Even when I hit the 'Off' button, the system still vents HOT air into the cabin. I cannot tell if the fans are running or not. The system will vent HOT air into the cabin regardless of what settings I change. Lowering the fan speed all the way down still blasts hot air into the cabin. If I lower the fan speed all the way down then turn the system off, I get the same thing. Recirculate air on/off doesn't make a difference. Turning the temperature all the way down or all the way up, system on or system off makes no difference. When the car does come to a stop, it will finally switch back over to a/c, but it seems weaker than it used to. It may be that some components are still hot from the furnace-temperature air, or it may be that the a/c isn't working efficiently - I cannot tell which.
The refrigerant levels in the system are good, and I have changed the cabin air filters. I work in the HVAC industry, but not as a field technician. My two guesses (please be kind - I barely know what I'm talking about here. I'm just spitballing) are either an airflow issue or a power issue. Perhaps there is some sort of vent or actuator that is not working properly, which is either being forced open and allowing hot air from the motor to vent into the system -or- being forced closed when the car is in motion and preventing airflow. If it's not an airflow issue, my fear is that there is an electrical issue. Is it possible that when the engine is running, there is not enough power for the compressor or a control board? My car has enough mileage on it that it's possible that the big hybrid car battery is dying, which might cause power issues.
I plan on taking it into the shop next week if there's nothing I can do myself.

2023.05.31 03:02 AtDSpecialEvents [Endgame Event] Prison Of Our Own Making
Duskendale 1st Month, 161 AC
The bodies beneath the walls of Duskendale had only just begun to rot as Rodwell Dustin was dragged from the bloodied field, up into the heart of the Rat's nest. There were no signs of Darklyn rule, nor the presence of the city watch that had been a constant for decades.
Instead of a cold embrace of a prison cell, the Northerner would instead be dropped on the floor of a modest but well-equipped chamber. Crudely made bars had been placed in the windows, replacing the open air that had once been there.
"Only one we managed to get, I'm afraid. But he's a highborn all right.", said the Poorest Fellow, flanked by two men of the cause and Tyberro of Yunkai'i before him. He kept his hand upon his stomach, holding back the fountain of blood sustained from his duel with woman of House Egen.
Tyberro would sigh, his eyes falling upon the wound for a moment before looking at Rodwell.
"Fetch a maester, for you both.", he'd say as he gestured to the Dustin's own injury. "We'll have him looked at and then prep him."
The zealot's brows would furrow for a moment, a decision to protest seeming to fall across his eyes, before being whisked away.
Tyberro would crouch down, coming only four or five feet away from the newest prisoner.
"Man of House Dustin, what is your name?"

2023.05.31 03:01 Rinehart268 Need help getting bike running..running out of ideas!
Hello, thanks in advance for reading this long post I’m about to write.
I have had a 1982 gn250 for about a month now, riding it on and off. The first few days it seemed fine but i noticed that the smoke from the exhaust would be black. I left it alone figuring whatever, it’s still running. One morning I needed to get it to the shop for tires so i went to start it to drive it onto the trailer (yes they were that bad), it wouldn’t start. It was going to the shop so i figured what ever ill have him look into it.
So he calls me a few days later and tells me that it’s done. He told me it was running a bit rich and needed a new spark plug and was running fine now. He also told me it held compression great and passed the leak down test. It was for a few days until about a week later with around 200 miles on it and suddenly it wouldn’t start. I messaged the last owner and was told he had the carbs rebuilt after he tried to do it himself but couldn’t clean the man in jet, so he stuck in a micro drill bit and over reamed it. The “rebuilder” didn’t replace said jet so i figured hey, that’s gotta be it! Got a new 130 jet per the manual and adjusted the float and its still doing the same thing except things seem to be getting worse and I’m losing my mind trying to figure out what it could be.
Currently, if i can get it to run, its so rich the exhaust is jet black and ill get one good ride out of it (10 miles or so) and the plug will be too fouled to get it to start and keep running. Removing the plug and cleaning it fixes that issue but I’m needing to do it everyday. It came with a pod filter, I’ve since put a stock airbox back on. I’ve adjust the pilot screw to the 2 turns per manual and have tried messing with it a bit looking for a change, and nothing. I’ve tried jetting it down to 120 and 125 and it was still fouling the plugs. When given throttle it seems to run great, and when running it seems to be great also.
Currently after messing with it most recently, I have a 125 jet in it. And I can’t even keep it running so tomorrow I’m going to put the 130 back in and clean the spark plugs again. I’m 99$ sure it’s carbon fouled, not oil. I’ve stuck a long q tip down the hole and there is just tons of carbon, no oil. The stock airbox had a super old foam filter in it so i took that out and washed it well and let it dry. I have a new one coming but sadly its a minimum of 2 weeks to get one. I don’t really think that could be the issue but i guess it might. I’m looking for opinions or things to check.

2023.05.31 02:58 kratomiskillingm3 I know this looks like a rant but I could really use an open ear.
Here's my back story.. When I was 16 I was given a Norco from my mom for a headache.. Instantly fell in love with the euphoric, numb feeling. I grew up in kind of a broken home/family, and it gave me instant relief from the reality I was living in. I ended up stealing those for around 3 years and ended up getting caught.. not long after I found out my dad was taking methadone and I decided it would be a great idea to try it for myself.. long story short I ended up hooked on the shit for around 4 years and my dad started tapering to get off it.. it was so bad I was stealing from the small dose he was getting because I was going through withdrawals myself.. This is still something I struggle with to this day knowing I stole from my family, for years, to feed my addiction. Something I will live with forever. Fast forward to now... I have been taking kratom for the past 5 years heavily.. my opiate addiction rolled into me finding kratom and I instantly fell in love with it. At first, it was the greatest... it turned me into superman at work.. I could crank out 2 days of work in a day and was ready to go for more.. it made me super social when out at parties, or at a bagathering.. this went on for a few years before I started to realize that I needed it to feel okay... and even when I did take it, I would still feel like shit half the time. I have tried to quit now about 5 or 6 times... 2 months being the longest. I have been basically high on opiates or kratom almost consistently for the past 12 years of my life and I am absolutely lost on what to do. I use to be a social butterfly, I loved going out. I had a huge friend group, a ton of great ones. I still do, but I have turned into an absolute hermit... I avoid any social contact, I am in such a deep depression, that most days I find it hard to even crawl out of bed. All of my relationships are at a dead end. My parents, my girlfriend... I am an emotionless, depressed, lifeless soul... this has been going on for a few years now and I just do t know where to turn. The longest I was able to quit was for 2 months... I felt worse of mentally after that 2 months than I did at day 1.. here I am now knowing I need to quit... but scared to death of what the outcome is going to be, or if it will ever even get better. At this point I feel hopeless and like there's no light at the end of the tunnel. I have tapered down to around 5 gpd... from my usual 15 to 20.. some people say it's a walk in the park to quit... for me I feel like my world is falling apart if I don't take it. Sometimes worse than others. I get super awkward socially, don't want to be around anybody, avoid contact with people that love me and would do anything for me. Basically I feel like it has stolen everything from me. My memory is so terrible sometimes I feel like I don't even knkw whats up or down anymore. This shit is the devil. Some kind words of encouragement would be nice... I feel so alone, and lost. Lately I been feeling like it would be easier off just not being here. My life is so miserable and worthless.. my mind clarity and mental state are at an all time low and I just want to see some progress! I have been trying everything in my power to overcome this.

2023.05.31 02:58 Forsaken_Ad_7709 I missed out.
Recently, I saw a post where my old best friend is getting married soon. Let’s call her Angel. Angel and I met at a youth group in high school and we bonded over the fact we were both homeschooled. Angel became friends with my friend Marie and we all hung out quite a bit until I went to college. I grew up with really strict parents, so when I got to college I kind of got wild(not like drugs wild), the freedom of not being at home was so addictive.
As time went on my freshman year, I stopped talking to them and hanging out with them. I don’t really know why other than I started getting anxious about how I had been with them in high school and wasn’t sure about how I felt going to the young adults group since I hadn’t been back to the church in a while.
Now I’m graduated (for a couple of years now) and I haven’t spoken to Angel for years and Marie I asked to get lunch a month or so ago but haven’t set up any sort of date or anything. I kind of left the ball in her court but I’m wondering if I need to follow up to show I’m definitely serious? With Angel getting engaged recently I don’t want them to think I just want to show up in hopes for a wedding invite, I just realized in their photos recently how much I missed while I was gone and the engagement photos kind of just tipped everything over the edge. I wish I could just text Angel and tell her sorry but I honestly feel like what’s done is done and I’ll never get either of those friendships back. I feel like there will never be a good point for me to try to reconnect and honestly if they don’t want to I would completely understand.

2023.05.31 02:57 Schutz01 What can I do if I have nothing to do at work?
I have managed to put everything at my workplace in order. Now, there’s nothing left to conquer. How can I use better my time while I don’t have anything else to do? Besides training, what else could I do? Or how could I invest my time for my career benefit? Because having nothing to do is mind-crushing in my POV.
Could you give me a piece of advice regarding this?

2023.05.31 02:57 GullibleDetective503 Am I being sensitive after my last two sessions with my therapist?
Recently (more so the past two sessions), I've been feeling weird towards my therapist.
Background on me at the moment:
I have bipolar II and anxiety disorder, I've seen my therapist since the beginning of 2021 and she's helped me confront a lot of trauma, strengthen my boundaries, and help me talk to the parts of me I haven't for a long time. I do see my therapist about 1-2 times a month, depending on how overwhelmed I feel.
I've had a year and a half long relationship with my partner, whom of which we have recently separated, which although upsetting and sad, has led me to seek therapy frequently. It's been a little bit more for two months now, maybe 3-4 visits during this time period each month. I also have been having a hard time with not successfully landing a job since I graduated college a little more than a year ago. I have also taken last year as a gap year for myself.
Last two sessions:
1) One of my sessions is when I talked about how I was feeling regarding my breakup (my partner and I had broken up at the end of March and tried to work things out up until a week ago where we decided to just end it for now) and as I was talking about how I was feeling and just wanted to sit and talk about it---she started asking me questions that were gearing into inner child/different parts of myself talk and I'm not going to lie, I was getting a little irritated because I didn't want to dissect my inner child at the moment because I just wanted to be sad talking about how I felt towards the breakup/my partner. I did tell her I wasn't wanting to talk about my inner child and just wanted to talk. At times I felt like whenever she did talk, it didn't make me feel really heard, but she just wanted me to dissect those parts of myself and not continuously talk about the breakup. Not saying I didn't want to, just NOT during that session.
2) My last session I've had with her, I was letting her know that my partner and I were going to meet up to talk again. Previously, before my breakup, I talked about how my partner and I were going through some problems and she didn't insult him or anything, rather just talk about how I can navigate those problems. She also is a couples therapist. But in this session, she was like "be prepared to be disappointed, because he'll disappoint you" and whenever I did meet up with him, I wasn't disappointed in him, just the fact that our breakup was really solidified at this point in time. She's texted me to ask how I've been doing and I've answered once, but not giving her any specific thing besides the fact that I've been sad about it. Ever since she said that, I've felt really weird about it because I understand why therapists need to be a little blunt/curt with their clients so they can have a realistic perspective on things, but that just made me feel some type of way towards her.
She really is a great therapist and has helped me a ton, but the last two sessions didn't really sit well with me. I'm not sure what to do, but I haven't had a feeling to talk to her about how I've felt with the breakup because I've had the support of my friends to talk to.
TL;DR: Recently, I've been feeling uncomfortable with my therapist during the past two sessions. I've been seeing her since the beginning of 2021 for bipolar II and anxiety disorder, and she has helped me a lot. I've been going through a breakup for two months (broke up in March, tried to work it out, ended it officially a week ago) However, in the first session, when I wanted to talk about my breakup, she kept steering the conversation towards talking about my inner child and other parts of myself, which irritated me because I just wanted to express my feelings about the breakup and didn't think it applied to this situation. In the second session, she made a comment about expecting my ex disappointing me, which didn't sit well with me because I wasn't disappointed in him the last time we spoke. Although she's a great therapist overall, these last two sessions have bothered me. I haven't felt the need to discuss my breakup with her since I have support from my friends.

2023.05.31 02:57 tempuntilifindyou 48 [M4F] #SanFrancisco I can look but I can’t touch
—> Please do not even contact me if you are a day under 18. <—
It's not creepy. I'm just appreciating a work of art.
Maybe you've had a man notice you and you wish he didn't turn his head away?
Or maybe you don't get noticed like you deserve to be?
Maybe you've wanted to tease a man and watch the hardness grow in his pants?
Maybe you like to wear skirts sans panties, and would stand over me?
Maybe you've wanted to cheat, sort of, without really, actually?
Maybe you've wanted to feel sexy, without sex?
(While we both have masks on. Double masks, even, because covid. Even if you're married.)
I want to find just one woman to, while in her chosen state of undress, would like a respectful and respectable gentleman to just be there close and observe... and moan and ogle and take in the beautify before him, while keeping his hands to himself.
Don't get me wrong, I really do like sex. And I'm not a prude. I just really like the feminine form, these are not times to be exchanging bodily fluids, and truth be told I wouldn't want to actually get physical with anyone I don't feel an emotional connection to first. (Yes there are men like that.)
Now, I realize a woman would be cautious about being so vulnerable with a stranger so I expect a lot of our initial conversations would be about placating your justifiable concerns. I'm all about that. A gentleman bears the burden of making a lady feel comfortable enough to proceed.
That said, based on experience with a similar post I tried from a now-deleted account of mine that brought no success, what I won't do is play games, converse with someone who won't tell me where she's located, engage in virtual play of any kind, or just answer questions while not being allowed to ask a few of my own. I'm sorry but I will block one-liners and incoherence.
About me: Not a creep! Really, women approach me in public to ask for directions and children approach me to help find their parents. I'm told I look "smart" and "presentable." I attractive enough to be noticed more when I don't have my ring on. Brown hair. White.
About you: No age limit either way. I guess I'm open to anything for this but in general I have been attracted to relatively more innocent appearances on the scale of things. As for race, I have mostly been attracted to Asian, Black, Latina, and white (in alphabetical order. And I suppose just because I haven't even been around a lot of Middle Eastern women?) Be at least somewhat attractive. If you're exceptionally attractive and you're used to men noticing you, or if you're not so sure and want the compliment of having me in a state of agonizing desire, this might be perfect for you. Especially if you're much younger or older and just want the appreciation with no contact.
Important: Obviously I don't mean just "check you out" while behind in line at the grocery or watching you jog by while you are wearing tight clothes, because I wouldn't need to post an ad for that. This would need to be in a private or semi-private space or some place that is so vast that we're so far from everyone that they won't wonder what I'm doing examining you so closely . Consider wearing nothing, yoga clothes, a swimsuit, underwear, etc. Just as obviously, I am not looking for an "online thing" or even talk about this with someone who isn't in the SF Bay Area or Northern California.

2023.05.31 02:56 NegativePast3826 Toxic Friendship - HELP?!
I'm not sure if this is the right subreddit for this but I wanted some advice on a situation with a friend.
So background context:
I (18F) am entering university this September, and am feeling pretty conflicted about my relationship with my best friend (18F) and I don't know how to handle it. Initially, I assumed she would be going to another university, so we could just drift apart and I could maintain a casual relationship with her. However, it appears to be that we'll be going to the same university, for the same program. This program only has about 200 students, so likely our classes will be the same, and so will our social circle. Currently, we're in a program with 60 students for high school and taking all the same courses and classes. Many of our clubs and ecs also overlap because I can't go anywhere alone without making a scene. So I basically am with her all day, everyday at the moment.
Before this friend, I used to be super social and had a lot of friends. However, she's quite antisocial, yet clingy. Previously, I would hang out with a bunch of different groups, and if I ever felt like the conversation was boring or making me uncomfortable I would walk off from the conversation and wander to another group (essentially I was a floater). Typically, groups wouldn't be bothered by me walking off. However, this friend began trailing me early in our friendship and wouldn't let me leave to go hang out with other friends on my own. Eventually, because she didn't want to hang out with other people, I would feel pressured to hang out with only her. Our high school cohort is about 60 students, so eventually people started to associate the two of us as a pair and would make remarks if I didn't hang out with her which furthered my isolation.
Additionally, she's very pessimistic and egoistic. She often looks down on others and believes she is the best at everything. While I agree that she is very competent and capable, the way she expresses this makes me feel uncomfortable. She expresses it quite directly with me, however, I think other people can tell she feels that way based on the way she acts as well. As a result, people I used to be super close with have grown distant from me because it's clear she looks down on them. I feel like I can't call her out because she'd refuse to accept it and I'd have to persuade her why she's wrong (You're being mean, or you've hurt their feelings is often met with "So what? I don't care") Additionally, I'm quite optimistic, and I like that part of me, even if it makes me naive.
However, I feel like because I'm only around her all the time I'm becoming more similar to herself, and I hate myself for it.
While I'm not soft-spoken, and will stand up for what I believe in, I try to avoid unnecessary conflict, and prefer to take a people-friendly approach. My friend is much more aggressive and often "rocks the boat" in group projects and friendships. This leaves me in a situation where I feel like I have to pick up the pieces to make amends because my own friendships are at risk. it also makes me very, very anxious, and I hate it so much. We talked about it once and she said she knows this too, which makes it worse. My other best friend (18M) previously mentioned that it's technically not my responsibility, but I feel like people view her actions and feelings about things as similar to my own, which screws over my relationships. Furthermore, she burned the bridge between her and the previously mentioned other best friend (18M), and tried to blame it on her not liking how he treated her. Eventually, this led to enough conflict last year that he also doesn't talk to me.
She's also known for crossing over boundaries, which caused one of my core friend groups to stop talking to her last year (and as a result, I've also grown severely distant). However, this is also applicable to me. We have to do what she wants if she's decided she wants to do something, regardless of what I want. I also find it quite suffocating to express what I want because she's so pushy about what she wants.
This is further exacerbated by her parents. Her father in particular is very similarly pushy and has no regard for my boundaries. Last year when we went on a trip with both families to the Aquarium, they both made decisions about what we would be doing without me. My mom's quite sick and one of the activities (a visit to the beach) would cause her symptoms to appear. I tend to do most of the planning in our house and often have to be careful to take into account my family members' conditions in this sense. However, this decision impromptu visit to the beach got me in quite a bit of trouble with my parents, as they felt I wasn't being considerate of them. This made me feel really frustrated and trapped between everything. Additionally, my friend knows of my mom's condition. While I don't expect her to take that into account when making the decision, she should have informed me or had her dad inform my parents, and allowed for a conjoint decision.
Similar things happen for other decisions such as when we go out for other activities as well.
Additionally, we're both pre-med students, which creates a lot of competition. I do my best to find many extracurricular opportunities and scholarship opportunities (especially since I'm a first-generation student and my parents are unable to support me in ways that are not financial support due to various reasons). About a year after we first became friends - we've been friends for 3 years, since grade 10 - she and another girl who we were close with at the time, reached out to form a club behind my back. I know this probably sounds very foolish, but up till this point, I had shared the majority of extracurricular activities I had researched online. Additionally, I had founded a club a few months prior, and had made sure to include both girls in a fair manner (We were all co-presidents). They had no intention to tell me, and I found out through another friend by coincidence. It really bothered me and made me feel like I was being taken advantage of. Eventually, we talked about it and came to an understanding.
This is further exacerbated by her dad once again. This year, I had compiled a database of scholarships. During a conversation, her dad had mentioned that we needed to be on top of things this year, such as scholarships. It had rubbed me the wrong way, so I had stood up for myself and mentioned I had a database of scholarships as a way to prove I was on top of things (I get told by my parents that I should work harder a lot, and it makes me upset because I'm really working my ass off). However, this prompted him to push my friend to get scholarship information from me in a very pushy manner. Initially, I ignored her hoping it would go away. About a month in from this, he called me while I was at home, and spoke to me in...I don't even know how to describe it, but it was a pretty manipulative tone to get me to hand it over. I ended up handing over a couple of simpler ones I had (because I had spent hours researching those scholarships, and the information is also available to her on the internet). Plus we had agreed that we wouldn't do exchanges in this sense because of the prior issue. (In this sense as in...something we can't repay the other for in the moment. Homework is alright because it's something that comes up frequently and often we help each other in a balanced manner).
I thought about talking to her, but she knows what her dad did was wrong, and a lot of my other issues revolve around who she is as a person so I can't change that.
Why am I still friends with her?
Well, while I am very isolated with no friends to hang out with this connection feels more real? A lot of my old connections, I would wander around those groups, and no one would notice if I left. Sometimes, it made me feel really lonely like no one cared for me. They all felt like surface-level friendships. This often made it super easy to walk away when things got toxic (which I can't do right now), however, I often felt depressed and unfilled then.
Additionally, we are quite similar in terms of SES and goals. It's quite easy to discuss familial issues with her when I need support, and from a financial standpoint, I don't feel pressured to spend with her either. Sometimes this can be stressful since she's more stingy than me, so I feel guilty for spending too (and therefore, going out with other friends and spending). But, there is the con that I don't have to spend money, and she's always down to split a coffee or find coupons with me.
Our sisters have also really hit off, and it's a nice dynamic from time to time.
Being in a similar field means she understands not having the time to hang out (especially while we did IB). This expectation from my middle-school friends stressed me out a lot.
What I think is the best solution:
I'd love to remain friends and just have a crap ton of distance between us. The type of friendship where you see each other only on holidays (like once every 4 months?). That way we can quickly catch-up, and can be there for each other if needed, but I can go ahead and live my own life. Plus, I can find myself again and be the person I like.
However, with us going to the same universities (in a city 2.5 hours from where we live now), I don't know how to get around all this. I also don't know how to tell her most of this without hurting her feelings. And even if I did, as I mentioned prior, the core of the issue is who she is as a person and how she carries herself. Just because I like being optimistic and nice doesn't mean I can force her to be that way. She's allowed to have her defence mechanisms, and we've discussed before how she believes her way of living is better than mine for her. (Her's being the pessimistic, and as she calls it "realistic" way, whereas mine is a lot more optimistic, sometimes naive, but imo it's simpler?). And no one has any right to say what is the right way to live for everyone? So that feels wrong...
What else should I do? Anyone have any ideas for how I could reach the ideal version of friendship I'm looking for? Please let me know if you need any more details.
TL;DR: Best friend is controlling, pessimistic, egoistic, looks down on others, aggressive/pushy, and rocks the boat of my other relationships making me feel anxious and isolating me. However, we connect very well on an emotional level. What should I do?

2023.05.31 02:53 kipnaku Is buying a PS5 worth it if my PS4 is completely functional?
I own a modded switch, ps4, laptop, ipad, and other random old consoles like 3ds and wii. Is there realistically any point to getting a ps5? I haven’t renewed my ps plus in over 4 years now. i barely use my ps4 because the games playstation has don’t interest me.
i don’t know what all the ps5 can do that would make upgrading worth it, but i do know the ps5 version that doesn’t have a disk slot is the stupidest thing i’ve ever seen on this planet. So if i got a ps5 it would be the one with it.

2023.05.31 02:53 _SleeplessNight_ limacids’ egg
Couldn’t sleep, so I was chilling in my room when I saw a snail on my window. I can’t open this window and I can’t go out rn, so I can’t take the snail outside (it’s very late in the night). I started chilling around, then I started to look at it, then I just laid in bed watching tv. I look at the snail after a while and it was standing still, not moving anymore. After a 30minutes I cheeked on it again and it was curing far from the spot where it was before: at its place there are now some white spheres (like 6??) covered in snail-slime. I think the snail is leaving now?? Because is going back when I 1st saw it?? Are those eggs? Snail eggs or are them from some parassite? Or are they just feces? Plz if someone can help, it’s pretty important;; I don’t want to hurt the baby snails in case;;
