2023.04.01 13:59 MaxTimeLord Husband and I are divorcing and I can’t see my son everyday anymore and it kills me
In December I decided to leave my husband due to his infidelity. I moved out and had to pick up a second job on top of my full time job in order to make it on my own. I’m rarely ever not working because of this. My husband and I share a 2-year-old son and I see him maybe 2-3 times a week and it absolutely crushes my soul. I miss doing his bath times with him and reading to him every night before bed and tucking him in. I miss having dinner with him. Words can not express how much I hate this. This has been my main struggle throughout this whole ordeal and I can’t cope with it. But I can’t quit my part time job because I know how bad I would struggle financially if I did. I’m in therapy which helps me a little, but I can’t shake the feeling of being a bad mom because I’m not there to watch him grow up. I miss him so much and I don’t know how to handle this type of grief. Anyone who has been in this same situation, how’d you get through it?

| || | submitted by rikuzero1 to TowerofFantasy [link] [comments]
Type: Volt - Fortitude
Cry of Weakness: Holding down the skill continually taunts nearby enemies and deal bonus shatter damage for up to 3 seconds and applying 1 mark of Predation to each enemy every 0.5 seconds. Upon releasing the skill, a magnetic needle substitute is made for 2 seconds times the duration held plus 1 to which aggro is temporarily transferred until expiration. Enemies that attack the substitute are taunted and receive 0.1x reflected damage. Become invisible for 4 seconds or until the Wanderer attacks an enemy or the substitute expires. While invisible, movement speed is increased by 35%, dodges cover twice the distance in the same time, and the next attack that hits a target deals +100% shatter damage and weakens the target's ATK by 15% for 10 seconds. Cooldown: 5 seconds x duration held + 10 (Max 25s).
Cry of Strength: Holding down the skill continually lowers aggro towards the Wanderer while dealing damage equal to 225% of ATK plus 12 per second for up to 3 seconds and applying 1 mark of Predation to each nearby enemy every 0.5 seconds. Upon releasing the skill, leap at the target with a horror beast claw, dealing dash attack damage equal to 418% of ATK plus 22 as a guaranteed crit with +30% crit damage and reducing the target's crit resistance by 5 levels for 10 seconds. Detonates any magnetic needle nodes touched by the attack independent of their cooldowns, each node dealing area damage equaling 76% of ATK plus 4, recovering 15 weapon charge per node detonated, and placing an additional node for 12 seconds. Cooldown: 2 seconds x duration held + 10 (Max 16s).
: Per mark up to 5 marks, enemies have crit resistance lowered by 2 levels and for critical hits taken: receive 1% more shatter and have 2% reduced elemental resistance. The Wanderer's movement speed increases by 3% per nearby mark active, up to 5 marks. Marks decay at a rate of 1 every 5 seconds.
Unbreakable Will: When weapon charge is full or Phantasia is triggered, switching to this weapon from another weapon removes all debuffs from the wielder and constructs a metal plate wall that stops projectiles for 5 seconds while dispersing magnetic needles into a ring which pulls in enemies towards the wall before scattering on the ground, reducing the movement speed of enemies within by 30% while dealing continuous damage equal to 76% of ATK plus 4 per second for 5 seconds with increased aggro generation. Damage immunity lasts 1.5 seconds while the skill is active (unavailable in Apex League).
Revenger's Requiem: Quickly leap to the target and slash multiple times, dealing total damage equal to 580% of ATK plus 31 and scattering 3 magnetic needle nodes for 12 seconds, max 7 on the field. Each node can be detonated by any volt weapon's electrify effect upon becoming fully charged, each dealing area damage equal to 76% of ATK plus 2 and recovering 15 weapon charge for each node detonated. Node detonation cooldown: 5 seconds. Damage immunity lasts 1.5 seconds while the skill is active (unavailable in Apex League).
*: While wielding Proteus, dodge attack damage that also critically hits applies a Predation mark and deals +20% crit damage and +25% shatter. 2\
*: Increase the current weapon's base ATK growth by 16%. 3\
--Balance: For each mark of Predation active while wielding Proteus, dodging heals the Wanderer by 1% of max HP, reduces damage received by 1% for 3 seconds, and increases healing effect by 4% for 15 seconds. Cooldown: 10 seconds.
--Fortitude: For each mark of Predation active, unleashing any skill or discharge heals the Wanderer by 1% of max HP and reduces damage taken by 2% for 5 seconds. Cooldown: 5 seconds. In addition, for each nearby mark of Predation active while wielding Proteus, a party member unleashing a skill heals the Wanderer by 1% of max HP. Cooldown: 5 seconds.
--Attack: For each magnetic needle node detonated while wielding Proteus, heal the Wanderer by 1% of max HP. Cooldown: 10 seconds.
--Benediction: For each magnetic needle node detonated, heal party members by 17.5% of ATK within triple the detonation radius and increases party ATK by 2% for 5 seconds for each mark of Predation active.
--Only the highest stack of marks is counted. 4\
*: Increase the current weapon's base HP growth by 32%. 5\
*: Enemies receive 1% more damage dealt by the Wanderer for each mark of Predation. While wielding Proteus, restore 4 weapon charge points for each nearby mark of Predation active per second. Only the highest stack of marks is counted. 6\
*: Increase Predation max to 7. In addition, increase Crit Rate by 1% and Crit Damage by 2% for each mark of Predation active. Only the highest stack of marks is counted.
"Originally invented by Project Ark for testing on G2-U subjects to wield inhuman instincts by substituting missing limbs with electrically charged magnetic needles in their insane plan to elevate humanity, this Proteus has been modified to recharge mid-combat and utilize metal plates which can camouflage."
==Normal Attack== atk x5
: While on the ground, attack 5 times.
-First Attack: Deal damage equal to 56.6% of ATK plus 3.
-Second Attack: Deal damage equal to 19.7% of ATK plus 1.
-Third Attack: Deal damage equal to 30%% of ATK plus 2.
-Fourth Attack: Deal damage equal to 47.1% of ATK plus 3.
-Fifth Attack: Deal damage equal to 136.8% of ATK plus 7 and strongly suspend the target. jump + atk x3
: While airborne, use normal attack to attack 3 times in a row in mid-air.
-First Attack: Deal damage equal to 107.9% of ATK plus 6.
-Second Attack: Deal damage equal to 114.0% of ATK plus 6.
-Third Attack: Launch the enemy at a nearby target or at the ground below if there is none, creating a shockwave upon landing that deals area damage equal to 142.8% of ATK plus 8 and stunning targets for 1 second. If the enemy cannot be launched, instead deal damage equal to 172.1% of ATK plus 9 and recover 100 energy weapon charge.
: Fortitude Resonance
: Tap and hold normal attack to take a defensive stance for up to 3 seconds, reducing damage taken by 20% and recovering 10 weapon energy charge per 1% of max HP lost while held. Releasing the normal attack button while holding a direction performs a dodge covering twice the distance in the same time. Releasing before getting hit performs the dodge at no cost, constructs a substitute for 2 seconds to which all aggro is transferred until expiration, and the Wanderer becomes invisible for 2 seconds or until the Wanderer attacks an enemy. If a dodge cannot be performed, instead cast the standing version of this skill. Releasing the normal attack button without holding a direction unleashes an area attack that deals damage equal to 167.3% of ATK plus 9. Releasing before getting hit doubles the damage reduction, energy recharge, and shatter damage, while applying a 0.2x damage reflection to the area attack. hold
: Non-Fortitude Resonance
: Tap and hold normal attack to gather magnetic needle nodes on the field and place them in a line towards the target, each node dealing area damage equal to 38% of ATK plus 1 and refreshing their durations. This consumes 1 node.
jump + hold
: Tap and hold normal attack while airborne, or use normal attack while climbing, jumping backward, or using the Jetpack to trigger aerial branch attacks, to barrel downwards into the target with a horror beast form, dealing damage equal to 154.5% of ATK plus 8 damage, strongly suspending targets. The higher the altitude when triggering the attack, the greater the damage dealt, up to 600% damage.
==Dodge== dodge + atk
: Tap normal attack during the short period after dodging. Let out a long and narrow projectile in sandworm form which penetrates the target and returns, dealing damage equal to 78.1% of ATK plus 4, and recovers HP and energy weapon charge proportional to total shatter damage dealt from critical hits. Restore up to 1 dodge if the attack shatters a target's shield. If Fortitude Resonance is activated and the Wanderer is invisible before attacking, taunt enemies hit. If Fortitude Resonance is not activated, detonate any magnetic needle nodes touched by the attack as if triggering electrify from fully charging a volt weapon, each node dealing area damage equaling 76% of ATK plus 4 and recovering 15 weapon charge per node detonated.
: For every 1 second you or your substitute is targeted by an enemy, gain a stack of Adaptation which reduces damage received by 2%, increases resistance for the element last damaged with by 4%, and makes critical hits ignore elemental resistance by 2%, per stack up to 3 stacks. For every 1.5 seconds not targeted, lose 1 stack. Unleashing a skill with Proteus grants 3 stacks of Adaptation.
: For every 1 second you or your substitute is targeted by an enemy, gain a stack of Adaptation which reduces damage received by 3%, increases resistance for the element last damaged with by 6%, and makes critical hits ignore elemental resistance by 3%, per stack up to 5 stacks. For every 1.5 seconds not targeted, lose 1 stack. While at 4 or more stacks, become immune to knockback on the ground and double the duration of Predation marks. Unleashing a skill with Proteus grants 5 stacks of Adaptation.
: Increase Crit Rate by 5/6/7/8% and Crit Damage by 7/8/9/10%. Taunting an enemy reduces its crit resistance by 2/3/4/5 levels for 3 seconds. This Matrix's effects work in the off-hand slot, but only the set with the highest star rating will take effect.
: Increases speed of obtaining weapon charge by 12/13%/14%/15% plus 2% for each magnetic needle node on the field. For every 1% of max HP lost, recover 5 weapon energy charge. In addition, for every 200 weapon charge recovered, deal volt damage equal to 7/8/9/10% ATK to nearby enemies. This Matrix's effects work in the off-hand slot, but only the set with the highest star rating will take effect.
==Character Background== Log 1
: Yuno, formerly known as Subject G2-U No.7, was born into the secret laboratory under Project Ark in the outskirts of Vera. On the surface, Project Ark aimed to conserve wildlife. Underneath, its true aim was to store the DNA of every creature into a human's to elevate humanity into the pinnacle of evolution and true apex of nature while obtaining the scientific freedom to exterminate all threatening species once stored. Comprised of 12 scientists and 36 miscellaneous staff, in secret they gave birth to 18 children to be used as the first generation test subjects. 12 designated G1-O subjects under the Overlay method of fusing animal parts to learn and integrate the DNA directly, and 6 designated G1-U under the Underlay method of injecting various substances such as blood and hormones to restructure the body instinctually as it grows. All G1-O subjects died, 4 of which died of surgical complications, 3 were hostile, and 2 were abducted by their defected parents and subsequently disposed of. 3 G1-U subjects died of poison-like symptoms and 3 survived with no apparent differences other than prominent hair growth and confused neurological behavior. Afterwards, 9 scientists and 28 staff remained, giving birth to the second generation of 16, 4 designated G2-O with significantly reduced fusions and 10 designated G2-U with varying degrees of raised injection levels and antibodies alongside the newly invented complementary equipment designed to wield prominent instinctive behavior in their intended form without physical complications, a fabric resembling a fur coat named Proteus. Proteus utilized magnetic needles attached to areas closest to the nervous system and used a battery to extend the instinct-induced neurological signals sent to the detachable needles to form substitutes for the missing limbs, taking from needle reserves located on the cuffs and collar when necessary. Of the 4 G2-O subjects, 2 couldn't move their fused limbs and were deemed failures, 1 became completely paralyzed and disposed of, and 1 showed remarkable success, becoming the focus of the project in preparation for G3-O. G2-O No.3 had little strength but had enhanced hearing and could pick up objects with his tail. Most of the G2-U subjects, however, showed hostility almost immediately after integrating enough with Proteus to form a weapon as if their minds were taken over by feral instincts and now had a fighting chance against their captors. Of the 10 G2-U's, 7 met their end this way, 2 were defiant but weak and thus kept until the final weeks of generation 2 to provide data for G3-U, and 1 strangely showed no signs of defiance nor reaction from Proteus. This was strange because G2-U No.7 received the strongest DNA injections. Because of his obedience, G2-U No.7 was allowed to work as manual labor while the project focused on G2-O No.3. What they didn't know was it wasn't that G2-U No.7 didn't possess the instincts he was given, it was that the first instinct he awakened to was one that let him foresee his death and adapt to the situation, becoming obedient and feigning weakness as well as internally mastering Proteus during each "failed" test. Eventually, G2-U No.7 developed enough affinity with Proteus to use his own hair and other metals as a substitute for the magnetic needles with or without Proteus, as long as they were connected by electricity. It was nearing the time in which the generation 3 phase of the project begins and G2-U No.7 could foresee the imminent death of generation 2. With each day he planted hidden hairs and metal plates in rooms, and once he had enough, he initiated his escape plan. First required getting G2-O No.3's cooperation. One night, G2-U No.7 tied together numerous strands of hair and with the small amount of electricity afforded to him with a night light he had innocently requested the week prior, he made this long thread travel through the air vents, as if it itself was a sandworm, into G2-O No.3's soundproofed room that he was almost never allowed to leave from, and constrict G2-O No.3's pinky until it dislocated. With this, G2-O No.3 would be taken out of his soundproofed room in the morning and put into the medical bay to treat his injury, and he can establish communication during the day he is tasked to clean the adjacent room. Whispering as to not be heard by security cameras, G2-U No.7 told him of their imminent death once generation 3 is born soon, and if he wants to prevent that, he has to follow through with a plan not yet disclosed. As the discussion is only one-way, agreement was decided on whether he lies to his escort by saying he could hear someone injured in the Proteus testing room as he's being escorted back. Evidently, the agreement was made. Just as G2-U No.7 heared footsteps toward that direction, he once again took out his long thread of hair, but this time he pretended to accidentally bump into the security camera while cleaning it, exposing the wires. With a lethal amount of electricity now, he quickly extended the thread across the room and into the hallway towards the Proteus testing room, reaching the door faster than the escort and connecting to the 2 strands of hidden hair on the sides of the door at neck height. As soon as the escort opened the door and tried walking through but instead came into contact with the thread, all of the siphonable electricity was channeled into it, killing the escort and shutting down the camera system. This was the moment he secretly trained his legs every night for. With the speed augmented by his strong saber-toothed wolf DNA, he rushed across the room, down the hall, and through the door before it closed, dragging the escort's body in with him. With the keycard he now possessed, he quickly unlocked and equipped Proteus just in time before the facility went into lockdown. But now with Proteus which he already mastered and a full battery, he easily ripped open the door with his horror beast claws formed by the magnetic needles. Then once he left the room, he picked up the couple hidden metal plates in the hall, attached them to his arms as shields, then sent out the rest of the magnetic needles to find and detonate with electricity each hidden strand of hair that was placed near lights and communications equipment, providing the cover of darkness for him to slip through the approaching armed guards. He stealthily killed each person nearby as he collected every metal plate to attach to Proteus and complete his defensive armor against the remaining guards and turrets he knew were waiting at the exit. As he finished, he met G2-O No.3. Being the kindhearted pacifist the staff raised him to be so he would obediently offer himself up as research material for generation 3, G2-O No.3 pleaded for him to stop killing everyone. The mind that was more human than monster remained unaware and manipulated into choosing his parents who gave him fake love. But to G2-U No.7 whose mind was only half human, he still saw G2-O No.3 as his only surviving comrade, the only one he could consider a friend despite their only previous conversation being one-sided. If only he could see the fakeness and lies, he could abandon these true monsters, even *if* they are his parents. With little time to talk, G2-U No.7 simply refused and headed to the exit, bluffingly threatening to kill him as well if he tries to stop him. As he turned the corner, he's met with the expected remaining guards and turrets, but suprisingly 2 scientists who didn't flee. They were G2-O No.3's biological parents. What's more, they didn't attack yet, as if they were waiting for something. G2-O No.3 then came into the room and the parents tell him that G2-U No.7 is about to kill them, his loving parents, and that he needs to protect them by killing. This was a desperate attempt at a pincer attack, but it was a useless effort, for they raised their child to be so pacifistic that no suddenly developed instinct could lead him to harm them. This would turn out well, G2-U No.7 thought, as G2-O No.3 would either be too afraid to take action or deal insignificant damage, but the worst case happened that G2-U No.7 couldn't have expected: he instead put himself between them and pleaded for G2-U No.7 to be spared and the fighting to stop. He had chosen not just his human parents but also a murderous half-monster as equals. Could he only see everyone here as redeemable humans? Could he have believed G2-U No.7's words because he couldn't imagine that anybody would lie? Distracted by the shock of seeing what transpired, G2-U No.7 couldn't react in time before the scientists took the first shot, killing G2-O No.3 who was in the way. Enraged at the betrayal of the greatest kindness he had seen in his life, G2-U No.7 lunged at them, indulging in his primal instincts as he ripped them apart in an act of pure predation. With him being the only survivor inside the lab, only he could hear the sorrowful cries he let out as the only person who treated him as a human died before him. This was also the first time he awakened to his gooseneck beast instincts, as it was only then he was allowed to express the feelings of strength in overcoming his enemies and weakness in losing what he desired to protect. If he would ever have something worth protecting again, he would protect it with everything he had without hesitation. G2-U No.7: escaped, age 6. G2-O No.3: deceased, age 6. Project Ark: mysteriously abandoned.
: As a monster who is a chimera of human, sandworm, saber-toothed wolf, horror beast, shielded beast, and gooseneck beast, the now free G2-U No.7 knew he could survive anywhere but wouldn't belong anywhere. And so, clinging onto the feeling of being treated as a human and the hope that he can meet someone like that again, he snuck onto a cargo ship and into Mirroria, a place where, strangely, his first thought upon arrival was that his friend would've complained how noisy it was. With a lonesome life in the shadows of Mirroria scavenging for food and electricity and running from M-SEC waiting for him, and with the hope of meeting a friend one day, he spent his new life being both the phantom protector of Mirroria and the phantom thief, who not even Captain Saki Fuwa could manage to catch in the end. 4 years pass, G2-U No.7, age 10, finds his life comfortable. Despite not yet finding a friend, being known as both a human-like protector and monster-like thief best suits him. Not even his instinctive foresight could warn him of how his comfortable life would get upturned by another beast in human form. One day in typical fashion, he would steal an unattended piece of food, but this time it wasn't merely a half eaten sandwich, it was a whole pizza!
He swiftly snatched it and retreated to the rooftops to eat it in peace, but just as he was about to finish the last piece, a scream could be heard where he had stolen the pizza. It wasn't a fully human scream either--it had an intimidating sense of feral power behind it. Slightly unnerved, he hopped down and wandered off into the back alleys to not get involved. But he could hear footsteps follow him, even though he took secret passages and moved in full stealth that was impossible for humans to hear. It was as if he was being tracked by scent, which should also be impossible for humans. Surprised at how long the chase had gone on, he had forgotten about how much battery was left in Proteus, and when he hit a dead end, it was run dry and he couldn't scale the high wall. The determined creature finally caught up, but what appeared from the shadows was merely a girl with silver hair and 2 dogs. They only appeared small and harmless until he looked into the girl's eyes and for the third time in his life foresaw his imminent death, for he was powerless before her overwhelming power without Proteus nor a nearby power source. His only option was to play dead the moment she hit him. The last thing he remembered before losing consciousness was being yelled and barked at while being incessantly kicked despite playing dead. When he awoke inside a cozy room, the same monstrously intimidating girl stood before him and asked him if anything was broken, where his parents were, and his name. Up until then, he only had one name, the horrid name given by a group of monsters to treat him as an expendable tool, but it was also the only thing he had left to remember his only friend by. So with a tone of certainty and pride in what he is, he responded "Yuno." It was only later that Yuno found out the girl was only forced to care for his wounds by her caretaker so people wouldn't find out she beat up a kid and ruin her fresh public image. But that minor detail didn't matter--he once again felt like he was treated as a human, and if someone like her can belong here out in the open, then so can he. Although quite young, after hearing about his speed and skills, the girl's caretaker found him work at M-SEC and cared for under Saki Fuwa, who simply sighed at the sight of him as if she lost a race. Because he's too young to be publicly employed and his fighting is a bit unorthadox, he continues his role as the phantom protector but this time embracing his monster side where the phantom thief once occupied. Having Proteus repaired from years of neglect, extended to fit his growing body, and upgraded to collect energy mid-combat and to enable the armor plates to camouflage, this marks a turning point in his life. Ironically, with the same instincts he foresaw his death as a monster with, he now foresees his future as one where he is human and full of life. He will live as the kind of redeemable human his first friend saw in him, and he will protect everyone who gave him a chance and accepted him.
- "Project Ark" references Noah's Ark, the vessel used in the biblical event in which pairings of every animal were loaded onto the boat to save them from extinction due to a great flood. Just as the great flood decimated all but the surviving handful of animals, Project Ark sought to eradicate all but the creatures they would store within humans.
- Proteus is a prophetic old man in Greek mythology who could shapeshift and knew all things past, present, and future, and would only tell what he knew after being successfully caught. Because he could shapeshift into anything, he became regarded as a symbol of the original matter from which the world was created. Through the use of the equipment Proteus, Yuno could use the knowledge of the past within his library of DNA to construct weapons, complemented by his refined adaptation instinct to analyze the present and perceive his future survival. After being caught by Fenrir, he answered what she wished to know: his name.
- "Yuno" as a Japanese word/phrase can be written many ways in kanji and thus have various meanings. For "yu" this includes "friend," "help," "kindness," "connect," and "origin" among other meanings. For "no" this includes "wish/desire," "field," and "wild" among other meanings.
- "Ono," which would have been G2-O No.3's name had he survived, as a Japanese word/phrase written in kanji means "small field" but is often confused with "Ōno" meaning "large field." Confined within the small labratory and kept in his soundproof room, he never knew such a large world existed.
- Today is April Fools' Day.
2023.04.01 13:58 NedFriarson49 Caitlin Clark Has Turned Women’s Basketball Forever
This isn’t some article or thinkpiece. I was at a sports bar last night in NYC, and granted, there weren’t any other games of importance going on, but all the bros (including me) were glued to the TV to watch Iowa-SC. I think she’s a game changer. I can personally say I’ve never watched women’s ball in my entire life. That was incredible.

Crap. I was an okay sleeper and now…no. 109 days off. Waking up every handful of minutes with panic, a pounding heart and pulse in my head. Any tips? My husband can’t be disturbed because he has work in the mornings and we have two kids so turning on the TV or making noise I can’t do.
Usually I wake up from symptoms and then it’s this cycle of worry, talking myself down and then being triggered again.
Have others had these symptoms? Thanks.

2023.04.01 13:58 gray007nl Devise a Strategy: Orcs (Monster Tactics)
There was some response to my previous post, so I figured I might as well keep going for a bit, I enjoy writing them anyhow.
Alright so the three orcs presented in the bestiary are pretty much the same in terms of stats and skills, high strength, decent Dex, good Con (except for the warchief), bad mental scores (okay charisma for the warchief. Low perception (except again the warchief), great AC on the Warchief and Warrior, middling for the Brute, average hitpoints. All skilled in Athletics and Intimidation plus Survival for the Warrior and Warchief. Last but not least all Orcs have Ferocity, allowing them to use their reaction to avoid being brought to 0 hitpoints and increasing their wounded value, Ferocity can be used 3 times (without medical attention) though they only get 1 reaction per round.
So from this you can already derive a basic strategy, Orcs rush headlong into melee, demoralizing their foe and laying into them, using maneuvers as they see fit, they care little for their personal wellbeing, seeing every scar as a gift, only retreating once brought to the brink of death at least once. Though plenty of orcs would also fight to death either for fear of losing face by retreating, to protect their brethren or to avenge fallen allies. Orcs also all have darkvision, so any orc lair is going to be unlit to give the orcs the advantage, though unlike kobolds, orcs simply prioritize whoever's closest only considering whether the target can see in the dark if they've got multiple options. Lacking Acrobatics proficiency Orcs only flank when the enemy leaves their flank exposed, but prefer to gain flat-footed from tripping or grappling enemies.
The first Orc by level is the Orc Brute armed with 2 Knuckle Daggers, 3 javelins and their fists. So first the optimal way for the orc to equip themselves at most times is Knuckledagger in one hand, other hand empty. There is no reason for the Brute to dual wield and the option of performing maneuvers with the empty hand is far more helpful than inaccurately throwing a javelin.
The ideal turn for the Brute is with it already adjacent to an enemy, it starts by demoralizing and regardless of success or failure, it then attacks twice. The actual attacks it uses will depend, the brute has an Intelligence mod of -1, but that's still enough to figure out the fighter in big bulky armour is likely easier to trip than they are to hit, while a character in leather armour or no armour at all they could be better off grabbing first. Shoving will be attempted if it allows the brute to protect a heavily injured ally or if there's something dangerous to push the enemy into. Disarm is not worth attempting unless you homebrewed it. Just striking twice with its knuckledagger is also a perfectly reasonable way to go and may in fact be the optimal choice. The orc would never use 2 maneuvers in a turn, it's far better off using its agile knuckledagger instead of a second maneuver.
If the enemy is 25 feet away or less, the orc strides and then uses the attacks mentioned above, not bothering with Demoralize. If the enemy is between 50 and 25 feet away, the orc strides twice (or steps once if it's exactly 30 feet) and then does 1 attack of its choice. If the enemy is more than 50 feet away, then the brute will draw its javelin, stride once and throw it at the enemy not worrying about the range, Orcs aren't good at throwing javelins and keeping the open hand is just more important. As mentioned earlier, the Brute will only retreat after its Ferocity has triggered once, though it might very well keep fighting to the death as well even when outnumbered as returning to the tribe after having several of your family members killed and failing to kill the people responsible would leave the orc very low in the social hierarchy.
The Orc Warrior is similar in many ways to the brute but it has a different weapon loadout, rocking a Necksplitter, 2 shortswords and 4 javelins. Unlike with the brute, it isn't quite as easy to pin-point an optimal combination of weapons for the brute and as far as I'm concerned there's 2 contenders for best loadout. Either the Warrior uses its Necksplitter in tandem with one of its shortswords, forgoing maneuvers and javelins entirely or it uses 1 shortsword and keeps it other hand free to use maneuvers or javelins. The Warrior likewise has skill in survival which would imply that it's capable of tracking intruders as well as capturing animals but not training them, this means a warrior's pet/mount might still be completely feral and prone to fleeing or disobeying its masters orders.
Another thing distinguishing the warrior from the brute is that the Warrior has Attack of Opportunity. This further encourages it to get in the thick of melee so it can punish spellcasters and cowards, but this also presents an issue as Ferocity and Attack of Opportunity both require the Warrior's singular reaction. I'd handle this thusly, the orc always uses Attack of Opportunity whenever it comes up except when it's below 50% health, then it saves its reaction for Ferocity.
If the Warrior chooses to wield a single shortsword and nothing else, then its method of attack is identical to the Brute, though with considerations regarding attack of opportunity listed above. If electing to wield the Necksplitter alongside a shortsword things get a little different, it cannot do any maneuvers and it's going to take it an extra action to stow a weapon before it can throw a javelin. So firstly, unless the enemy is really far away (more than 75 feet) it won't bother with the javelins, if the enemy genuinely is that far away, then it'll stow its necksplitter and draw a javelin, probably not drawing the necksplitter again for the rest of the combat. Otherwise it'll likely delay for the enemy to get closer as there is no point striding three times and then just letting the enemy hit you.
When attacking with both weapons drawn, the first attack will always be with the Necksplitter as it deals more damage, the second attack will depend on if there is a second target in reach or not, if it is then the second attack is with the necksplitter as well on that secondary target benefiting from both sweep and forceful. If there isn't then the second attack will be with the shortsword to benefit from the agile property instead. Regardless it would try to demoralize first before attacking, though it might also consider stepping to a location where it would be able to hit 2 different enemies with the necksplitter (if it needs to stride to get in position it likely wouldn't bother). It follows the same principles when it comes to retreating as the brute does.
Finally we have the Orc Warchief similar to the warrior in many respects, but different through using a greatclub and having a special action in Battle Cry, it also has better will saves than typical for orcs. A 2-handed weapon really restricts what the Warchief can do on their turn, they need to change grip for maneuvers (other than Shove) or to draw javelins. This combined with the Warchief wanting to use Battle Cry every single turn means they would probably never want to bother with maneuvers and only reach for a javelin is the enemy is more than 50 feet away.
With the enemy right next to the warchief, the warchief's turn is pretty simple. They use Battle Cry and then they strike with their greatclub twice, if the enemy the warchief is fighting has a high AC and the warchief is struggling to hit they'll replace one of the strikes with a demoralize otherwise the bonus from Battle Cry is too good for the warchief not to swing twice, perhaps shoving if there's an incentive to do so.
The presence of the Warchief is going to change the strategy of the other orcs too, every Orc before the warchief in initiative will spend their first turn delaying until after the warchief's turn to benefit from his battle cry, the only exception to this is if they already have an enemy in melee range, then they probably wouldn't wait for the Warchief's order and just start swinging immediately. Likewise the effect of Battle Cry only works on Attack and Damage Rolls, not on skill checks, so with the Warchief around the other Orcs are less likely to use maneuvers preferring strikes when given the option (So Orc Warriors accompanying a warchief would generally be dual wielding Necksplitter and Shortsword).
When it comes to reactions and retreating, the Warchief functions the same way as the Warrior, half HP is where it saves its reactions for Ferocity and it won't flee until it's triggered Ferocity at least once. The other orcs however might flee as soon as the Warchief falls, though again this might also infuriate them into wanting to take revenge on the killer of the warchief and prompt them all to fight to the death.
Orcs as one would expect, are fairly simple tactically, they get stuck in and start swinging, only ever thinking of retreat once it's too late. Surrender is humiliating and not something most orcs would consider, fleeing to fight another day is always preferable and if it isn't an option then they'll die fighting.

2023.04.01 13:58 GotReg Question about downward facing dog pose and abdomen.
Years ago I dabbled with different types of yoga and for various reasons I didn’t stick with it (including a degenerative foot injury that affects standing in bare feet). Then about two years ago I started practicing yin yoga as a way to complement my indoor cycling.
I recently switched studios, and my new studio tends to have shorter poses mixed with some standing poses, often several downward dogs, which is kind of new to me although I did practice some back in my dabbling days.
So…..! A few days ago I went into downward dog and I felt my lower abdomen (pelvic floor?) swoop up and back towards my butt <— this seemed to happen on its own. I was NOT engaging my lower abs, it was like my limbs found an alignment that created a vacuum that sucked my lower abs up toward my spine.
My mid and upper abdomen elongated and my ribs felt open and expanded. Suddenly I remembered having this sensation on occasion many years ago. It feels like I’m finding a sweet spot. It is a good feeling. I took a class last night and I was able to find that sweet spot and I’m hoping it is a good thing.
Then, last night I was extremely tired and I went to bed early. I noticed what felt like uterine cramps. It never became severe but I had to wonder if the cramping feeling was related to the muscular abdominal activity from hours earlier or maybe it’s unrelated.
TL;DR - is there a name for an involuntary abdominal “shift” that occurs during downward dog, and is it beneficial? Is it common? Thanks for any input!

2023.04.01 13:57 Pengu28 So I just got denied from YPP… how should I proceed?
So Yesterday night I finally made it to step 3 of the application process, and woke up this morning to receive my result, less than 12 hours later.
I was told I was ineligible due to “reused content” which kinda makes sense cause I make edits with stuff like Marvel and WWE footage with music in the background. But when I looked the details, “Thoughtful revisions of content you didn’t originally create was allowed” But on the other hand, “Collections of songs from different artists” are not. How should I proceed with this? If I reapply does that push back my April 30th reapplication date? Because I have one more shot until I drop back below requirements on May 5. Should I just hope they let the music slide? Or try to completely rebrand in a month so YouTube lets me in? This is hitting me pretty hard rn so I ask you take it easy on me in the replies.. thanks for advice on advanced

2023.04.01 13:57 Loss_Level I had a realization
I feel a bit dumb that i just understood that now, but ya know that whole debate about V5 when Yang acts so hostile about Ozpin giving qrow and raven the power to turn into birds? Well unless my memorie is failing me, i think the reason she got mad was actually because he hadn't told them that by his own, that even if it was a harmless secret it still was a secret, basically Raven let that out of the bag to give her a one up on Oz and see how much he hides.
(Still the scene fails a lot in conveing that (if that really was the reasoning of it) like a lot of other moments in V5, but with this explanation in mind i get a bit more ok with it. And you guys what yall think?)

2023.04.01 13:57 ToriAnimeKitty Birthday madness
So for starters. I waited a full month to disclose this story. My birthday was in the beginning of March. My family every year tries to go out to eat to wherever we wanna go for our birthday dinner. So like our favorite place regardless if the siblings hate it or whatever. With my birthday, i threw parties with friends to share it with people i considered closer than family. This year I told everyone what I wanted to do earlier before my birthday came around. I wanted to do a murder mystery night. Eat pasta and food coma my way to bed. And the entitled people in this story are my family members. The entitlement is real and just exhausting. (Two older brothers, and a pregnant sister in law)
So at the time, last month, I was working a new job. I had schedule troubles and they'd just switch me to mornings nights or afternoons on a whim. In doing so, my sleep was not even factor..
My whole family gets word from my boyfriend and my dad. Because I'm not awake half of the time to even plan it this year. My brother instead of texting would call me at work and not leave a voicemail and by the end of my shifts I just went to bed after getting home. I had to find out they planned a full dinner thing for my birthday as a gift. With things they liked. What they'd eat. Drink. Even down to what we would do. (My brother pulls that stunt every year whenever he doesn't like what I come up with). I didn't know until the day before. That night when I found out I was so frustrated I voiced out all of my concerns to my father. Basically just like hey. My brother is getting on my nerves. He's changing up all the plans for my birthday and acting like its not the day I was born. What do I do. My dad just said let's just chill here at the house, I'll buy the food and we can just relax. And I was so happy he was on my side. My bf was irritated about it as well. Because he knew what I wanted to do. And didn't bother trying to change it. They also went ahead to buy everything necessary for the event without telling anybody so I'd be guilted into going and keeping my mouth shut.
The morning of my birthday I get a phone call from my pregnant sister in law. She's hounding me as to what I wanna do for my birthday. I just woke up for a shift. I'm barely functioning. Just screaming at me over and over "what do you want to do for your
birthday". I couldn't even get a word in. After the phone call I went to the basement crying to my bf because I did not need that for the day I already regret having as my birthday. I just sat down there watching TV with him. My dad came down and asked when I'd wanna have dinner. He went out and picked up my favorite pasta with all the drinks I could ever want. And a present. I didn't even expect any gifts because we normally don't. He upgraded my gaming system. And I didn't hear from anyone for hours. Come like 9:30pm. My brother and sister in law show up without telling anybody they were coming. I figured with all the screaming they wouldn't show.
My other brother didn't show. Then outta nowhere my mother shows up. (I have her in raisedbynarcissts
) with gifts? We do not have a good relationship by any means. So having her there was just as surprising given we are at each others throats. Her gifts were kind of fire. Which concerned me. (She wants to be back in my life when I've put the boundary there over & over I don't want her in it). My mother also proceeded to ask me to move in and come work with her and dump my boyfriend to just build a life us women working together. My father shut her down real quick.
Everyone didn't stay for more than half n hour. I passed out and figured it was the end of that. NOPE.
Next morning, I get a phone call from my other brother. Screaming at me for not planning my birthday properly. Being disrespectful to my sister in laws plan making. And proceeded to tell me I need to stop playing the victim card. My dad went off on everyone to leave me the hell alone. And my bf said the same.
Now a month later everyone besides my father is still giving us the cold shoulder. We've been giving my brother & sister in law baby stuff for free for their baby soon coming into this world. And barely speaks more than two words to us anymore. My other brother is just poof
and my mother thankfully not around as often anymore.
(For more context, I hate my birthday, always have. Since I was 14. They've been nothing but painful).

2023.04.01 13:56 Putrid_Magician178 Worried about 9 year old Cat
I recently adopted a 9 year old cat as his owner passed and I knew a relative of them. They told me he was a rag doll which he looks like it, but I have no papers for it. They didn’t have much information for him so I’m not sure much of anything about him. Currently sense I got him I observed some things that are making me worried. - He seems very unstable in his back legs, they shake whenever he stands and he is often off balance. He doesn’t seem like he can stand for long periods of time. Jumping is normal but getting down he seems scared. - he sheds a lot. I have another long hair cat that sheds, but this cat is shedding that it’s covered my whole sleeve if he just rubs against me. - I don’t think he’s grooming himself - he often is laying but awake with eyes open, I don’t often see him sleeping (I have a camera set up to check on him sense I’m worried about his legs) - idk if this is abnormal but he is beyond loving, like he climbs on your lap and basically rubs against you for ever. I don’t know if it may be a signal of something. - he eats a lot, but he seems very skinny. He is very light compared to my other cat who’s frame work is smaller. I can feel a lot of his bones very prominently, his spine I can feel the break down, his head, his back hip/leg bones.
I have him scheduled to go get checked by a vet to see what’s going on, but I just wanted some idea and prep on what may be going on. He is declawed in the front (not by me) but not the back. His eating, drinking, and bathroom habits seem relatively normal but idk how good my judge of normal is, he may pee more than usual.

2023.04.01 13:56 nothinkybrainhurty Recommendations for apps that help you track your meds?
(sorry if a title is worded weirdly, apparently I can’t use words “does anyone have” in a title)
I constantly forget if I’d already taken them, I constantly skip doses by accident and sometimes I take double doses before I remember that I have already taken my meds that day. It’s especially hard with one of the meds which I take at 7am (so I can fall asleep at night) and I’m never 100% sure if I’ve taken them or just turned off all of the alarms and went back to sleep.
So alarms don’t work. Sorting containers for meds don’t work, but at least they help me notice if I skipped a dose or something. I already lumped 3 of my meds to take at the exact time, which somewhat helps, but sometimes just makes me more confused whether I’ve taken them or not.
I’m getting desperate and I’m wondering if you have any app recommendations that actually work for people with adhd.

2023.04.01 13:56 Own-Cupcake7586 Got to see Randy Feltface last night. Literally resting my foot on the stage. Shout out to the best wife ever for getting the tickets.
2023.04.01 13:56 austinb62 How to 100% buy yourself some time if you are on a call in color code program (e.g. drug court/bond stipulations)
Want to know how i passed a drug test for meth, fent, and i think heroin in under 10 hours with no bullshit drinks or tricks? Well I didn't pass the test, because I got a pass ON the test so I didn't even have to take it! It's a long read but well-worth it.. I tried my best to make it a pleasurable and entertaining piece to read!
Well last year I was on conditions of bond that stipulated I had to call into the court services office every morning before 9 a.m. to find out if I had to UA that day. In addition to the potential randoms, it was MANDATORY that I checked in EVERY Wednesday before 11 a.m. to test. Well, after several months i noticed a pattern of my randoms being called every other tuesday. I got the notion in my head that I was fine to do drugs from wednsday afternoon after the mandatory test up until Saturday morning, and convinced myself I would be nice and clean come the next Tuesday...
Well after deciding that was my new schedule, it was on. I strutted in the office one Wednesday and did my UA, passed, then walked out the door smiling and waving. As soon as I got in my truck I filled up the meth pipe and started rolling a bowl, then I threw a foxy on a piece of foil and smoked it up at the same time. (Foxy* a pressed blue M30 - called Foxys in my area = Fake Roxy) I continued on one hell if a fentanyl/meth binge all the way through to Thursday night around midnight, and thats when my plan came unraveled. Around midnight thursday i called the color code line out of habit just to see if my color was required to UA for Friday and, lo and behold, she was calling me in to UA. I FUCKIN PANICKED.
I got to googling like crazy how to mask/dilute/fool the fentanyl in my urine. I knew how to handle the meth, but I couldn't find ANYTHING regarding passing a supervised short notice fentanyl drug test. All I could find on reddit as well as all of the recreational drug forums was people saying "only sure way to pass a drug test is don't do drugs".... Yeah? Well fuck you pal. I bet you're fun at parties. Anyways. I ended up hatching a plan to call the phone company that provided landline service to the office. I knew the phone number would be the account number, I knew the address, and I knew the special programs coordinators name, but what I NEEDED to know was the pin number to remotely change the voice-mail greeting. Since the coordinator uses the voice-mail greeting to announce the daily color call, I called the phone company and, using my best snooty coordinators voice, got them to reset the voice-mail log in pin #. After doing that I Googled how to remotely change the voice-mail greeting, and it was super easy. I changed my voice and recorded my own personal greeting to let everyone know the office would be closed that day and there was no reason to come in and to enjoy their weekend..
And that is how I passed a drug test with 10 hours notice without doing anything difficult.

2023.04.01 13:56 Anonymous717717 I 15f am being bullied again and I don't know what to do anymore
TW: mention of suicide self harm SA and bullying
Any advice would be so appreciated, but honestly I'm just looking to get it off my chest as I have no where else to go to. This is an anonymous account but if you work put who I am from this YOU DONT KNOW ME.
I 15f have been bullied all my life, every school I have been to I have been bullied most of the time it was just verbally aka name calling or just excluding ect there have been instances where it was physical but it was never too severe (I have 1 or 2 scars from it on my legs). When I left primary I left hoping that I would never be bullied again and would have a bug friend group and no one would be horrible ever again. And I did have that but, it ended in year 9 I had a semi big friend group of around 7 people my best friend at the time (let's call her k) was probably the best person ever she was so kind and helped me through so much but then something happend and we were not friends anymore. But atleast I had the rest of my group and then my next closest friend (let's call her V) was amazing blah blah blah We all stopped being friends and now I have around 3 close friends and I'm okay with that. They are amazing people and I couldn't have asked for more.
Okay so I go to a very small secondary school (less than 700 students) and have been bullied twice there the first time the girl got kicked out a few weeks after (not because I reported her or anything) and now a group of girls who have turned me into an inside joke within their friend group and so on ect.
I am a very sensative person. When I get an instrest into something it gets big and stays for a long time. For example I have a big interest in mushrooms and mycology and plants I currently own 17 I can talk for hours on the knowledge and facts and what I've found in those topics. It's also pretty obvious because I used to post alot of it on my tiktok. Bully 1 also took that to her advantage and bullied me for that aswell. A little backround on the last 2 bullying instances, I belive the first one started when K became friends with bully 1 and I guess she told her some of my secrets for example that I suffered pretty badly with self harm and that I had some physical health problems. Bully 1 took that to her advantage and was relentless with the name calling. She made a groupchat with everyone in her contacts and added me and poster immages and stickers of me and name called and was making fun of me. She also tried to trip me on the stairs multiple times. I never told anyone shout those besides my friends and she eventually got expelled from the school so it all ended there. (There was more to this story but I prefer to keep some things private)
Now I understand it really doesn't seem like a big deal and I know and if you're reading this thinking that I'm overreacting or I'm just sensitive I know and I'm sorry. Some backround why I'm like this is because of all the bullying and insensitive comments ect. I've struggled with self harm since I was 11 and have tried to off myself 7 times thr first time when I was 12. I still haven't recovered fully and I get overwhelmed very very easily and don't do well under stress so that's all been building up and only my closest friends know none of my family and recently some guy tried to SA me I was in town waiting for the bus when he stood behind me very close and walked around and called me a "spicy girl" when I tried to distance myself then he got close and tried to grab my chest area, I ran away and met up with a friend. Which kind of explains why the situation now is very stressful and overwhelming.
Onto whats happening now. A popular group in my year has turned me into an inside joke Girl A has been saying Hi to me and just sometimes being a bit weird and sometimes being nice but too obvious it's sarcasm at first I just believed it to be her being weird because it wouldn't have been the first time that's happend but the other day a friend of mine overheard them talking about how girl A is dating me and she came to tell me and honestly I knew something was up but I never expected that to happen. And then not even like 2 seconds after I was told girl A came up to me and was her usual self of an overly friendly hi then the whole friend group started laughing. Oh and another point is that they will eventually come up to me and say something, but because they are the popular girls I am horrified of what will happen because even if it is a joke and they ask to go out w me or something and I say no they will most likely start some sort of drama and I will be in the centre or worse they will actually bully me. The thought of that caused me to have a panic attack around my friends and now I genuinely have no clue what to do anymore.
I'm really sorry if you're reading this and thinking that I'm overreacting or it's not as bad as I make it out to be and I'm sorry.
also if this for whatever reason goes on tiktok you still don't know me.

2023.04.01 13:56 RonuPlays Need help balancing homebrew artifact
[NOTE: If you're the druid in my campaign, stop reading! You know who you are!]
In my current campaign, one of the main plot devices is an artifact, a magical dagger. Long story short, the BBEG has been using the dagger to kill spellcasters and steal their arcane energy. In the most recent session, the PCs managed to get a hold of it, and now they want to use it.
I've been working on a way for the dagger to be both powerful enough to be coveted by the BBEG, but not so powerful that the players blast through every encounter. Below is what I have so far. Is it balanced? For reference, the party is currently level 7 (Sorcerer 7, Druid 7, and a Barb 5/Warlock 2), and I'm thinking of giving the dagger around 10 charges to start with.
Weaveshredder Weapon (dagger), artifact (requires attunement by a spellcaster)
This magical dagger has a silver blade that glows white, with a golden hilt. When used against spellcasters, this dagger can sever the spellcaster’s connection with the Weave, absorbing their arcane energy.
Sacrifice. When an attack made with this dagger reduces a creature to 0 hit points, and that creature has the ability to cast spells, a burst of white light flashes from the blade for a split second, and the dagger regains a number of charges equal to the target’s spellcaster level (if the creature can cast spells but has no spellcaster levels, such as with innate spellcasting, the dagger regains a number of charges equal to the target’s proficiency bonus). If a creature killed this way is resurrected, it loses all of its spellcasting levels and can no longer cast spells. This property applies even if the Weaveshredder’s wielder is not attuned to it.
When an attuned creature holding the dagger casts a spell, it can expend charges in one of three different ways: heighten attack, heighten defense, or heighten power.
Heighten attack. The spell’s attack roll gains a bonus equal to the number of charges spent.
Heighten defense. Until the end of the creature’s turn, its spell save DC gains a bonus equal to the number of charges spent.
Heighten power. If the spell is cast using a 1st level spell slot or higher, the spell is cast at a higher level equal to the number of charges spent. For example, if a creature casts fireball with a 3rd level spell slot, it can expend 2 charges, causing the fireball spell to be cast at 5th level.

2023.04.01 13:55 WarpFactorNin9 The finest idiots of Auckland..
Driving westward on East Tamaki road, at the intersection of Bairds road, the light was green on my side and a steady flow of traffic heading West towards Papatoetoe. These three idiots on pedal bikes crossed the path of oncoming traffic after jumping a red light on the east bound side of East Tamaki road.
Gave a strong toot of the horn and may have missed them by inches. Need to invest in a good webcam WTAF… got a good ear ful from my female partner who was scared they may gang on us and follow us with their mates, because I honked.
These idiots will surely get killed one day going by the manner which they were behaving today..

2023.04.01 13:55 Normal_Plantain_123 Is OI a type of fanfiction (we just aren't exposed to the original story)
Disclaimer I am not disparaging either. I think both fanfiction and OI are amazing. On to my theory
OI has a lot of tropes in common with fanfiction as listed below. Although some are more rofan than OI
1) Fan insert fic: Basically the fan finds themselves in the book/movie/show/game they were enjoying
Popular stories like "Fiancée’s Observation Log of the Self-Proclaimed Villainess" and "Miss not so sidekick"
2) Time travel AU(alternate Universe) or fix it fics: fanfiction where the character goes back in time to correct some perceived injustice.
Popular stories with this theme include "Fantasie of a stepmother" and "My in laws are obsessed with me"
3) Marriage of convience: While the fake dating aspect is fairly common in mainstream media as well, contract marriages aren't so common unlike both fanfiction and OI.
My in laws are obsessed with me" once again makes this list
4) Sympathetic villain or the "Draco in leather pants" trope: The villain character is seen in a more positive light
Antagonist's pet, our darling Mia from tearmoon empire and the lovely bakarina take this trope to new heights
5) Kid fic: Either the mc of the fanfiction raises kids(other main characters from the original story) or is a kid themselves
"I'll be the Matriarch " " Not sew wicked stepmother" are a few examples with this trope
6) Actually the good guys were bad or bashing fics: Fanfiction where the characters who were "good" in the original work are bashed and shown in a negative light. The white lotus trope or any story where the original gl is the antagonist. Usually goes with the Sympathetic villain trope.
7) There are tropes that play a minor role in OI like the mc owning a cafe/bakery being similar to a coffee/flower shop au or there is only one bed trope
Maybe these tropes are just common and I don't notice them in mainstream media
Maybe I read too much OI and fanfiction
What do you think?

2023.04.01 13:55 Ambitious-Win-67 When am I in the clear from Paxlovid rebound?
47F, 134lbs, Hashimoto’s (take Armour and Unithroid), inflammatory arthritis (take Otezla), hemochromatosis (monitored and managed, not severe), high pvc burden (~10%), exercise induced asthma (albuterol inhaler, as needed)
Started experiencing loss of taste/smell on 3/20 and tested positive for covid on 3/21 on at-home test. Started Paxlovid antiviral on 3/21, first dose at night. Completed treatment on Sunday morning, 3/26. I was warned that a small percentage of people experience rebound. Tested myself each morning before going to work 3/27 through 3/3, testing negative each time on at-home tests, but still wore a mask at work so that I wouldn’t expose anyone if I managed to rebound. While the Paxlovid helped, I’m still not 100% (headaches, fatigue, breathlessness with up/down stairs, taste/smell ability wanes and waxes, coughing).
How long do I need to keep testing myself? When, in number of days, can I safely consider myself in the clear from the possibility of rebound? Are lingering symptoms just my body healing from the “damage” covid did and not a sign of current infection? Ideally, I know I could just test everyday, but at-home testing can get expensive. Thanks for any input/advice.

2023.04.01 13:54 eyeandtail What's going on here?
I want to replace the switch on the right for a dimmer switch so I opened the back box to see what I am working with and found this setup. Forgive my ignorance, but I have a few questions:
- Why are the two black wires going over the black screws on each switch connected to each other and capped with a marrette instead of just connecting to their corresponding switch? The two switches control different light fixtures, left one is a 3-way switch and right one is a single pole.
- I can't replicate what I have now with the dimmer I bought (the Lutron DIVA DVCL-153P, to be specific) because it doesn't have screws on the back, just cables poking out of holes. How would I go about installing it?
- Dimmer I have has 4 wires: a black, a red, a red/white, and a green. From the research I did and through reading the instructions that came with the dimmer, the red/white wire is redundant for single pole use and the black and red wires are interchangeable? Is this correct?
- If the ground wires inside are ground to the metal box itself in the back, what do I do with the green wire on my dimmer?
FYI: I probably won't attempt this myself if it's too complicated, no worries.
Thanks in advance!!

2023.04.01 13:54 the_iriki International arrival at Slam Dunk?
Hello everyone! I'm from Brazil and will be visiting London for the first time to attend Slam Dunk South. I'm currently based in Paris and will be taking a night bus that arrives in London (Victoria) at 6 AM (expected time).
With that said, I have a few questions:
- Has anyone had experience with Paris-London buses? Do they arrive on time?
- What are the British immigration authorities like? Do they take too much time and make me worry about missing my Big Green coach?
- Has anyone had experience with Big Green coach? Do you know the exact location in Victoria station where they depart? What is the schedule like? Do they arrive at 9:30 AM and wait until 10 AM to depart for the park?
- Has anyone been to Victoria station before? Do you have any suggestions for breakfast there? Are there lockers available for luggage?
Thank you, and I'm looking forward to the festival!
