2022.01.25 19:43 Pr3ttyL4m3 I officially reached my breaking point
My future in-laws would adamantly deny they’re QAnon followers, or even right wing. They call themselves “libertarian” or “centrist” & we’ve even shared some laughs in the past about right wing extremism.
Yet when Covid first began, we received links about a “plandemic” & “Wayfair child trafficking”. They listen to Joe Rogan, believe in “crisis actors”, & have implied Sandyhook/the Pulse Nightclub shooting were hoaxes. During the duration of Covid, they’ve traveled to Covid hotspots repeatedly & hosted parties for every single holiday (all of this maskless, of course).
Needless to say my fiancé & I have learned to bite our tongues, & try our best to separate their views from who we would like to think they are deep down. We’ve made Bingo games of it, found laughter through it through watching SNL, leaned on one another to vent to, & simply resigned to the fact we are the outcasts of the family.
But it’s been a truly exhausting 2 years… This isn’t just a “difference in opinions.” My fiancé & I both lost our jobs due to covid. Then, I began working alongside the homeless population & now witness covid deaths relatively regularly. We’ve each had friends die [& struggle finding closure, with the lack of funerals]. Both of my best friend’s mothers passed away & they were forced to take “shifts” in hospitals to decide which family members surrounded them in their final days. I barely see my parents, because they are high risk & seeing so much death around me makes me feel GULITY for doing the right thing nonetheless. I absolutely adore my job- but much of it these days has become enforcing mask rules to hostile adults twice my age, begging symptomatic individuals to please allow me to administer a rapid test for them, writing people up for violating quarantine, doing my absolute best to comfort someone who is hysterical as their partner is taken away in an ambulance, carrying someone’s suitcase as they head back to the hospital alongside an oxygen tank, desperately searching for contact info of Next of Kin, etc.
We recently had the in-laws over & a few hours into what was initially a great night, my friend [whom I had seen 2 days prior] called to inform me she is very ill with Covid. I promptly passed along the message to our guests, very matter-of-fairly. To my surprise- they immediately began laughing, saying how they aren’t at all concerned since covid is “no biggy”, & even high fived over “already having it several times.”
I bit my tongue with all the stupid conspiracy theories, the recent “let’s go brandon” cheers over shots of alcohol, & the sudden refusal to be vaccinated. But I cannot bite my tongue as you LAUGH In my face about a disease that continues killing millions. Covid isnt “just a cold” for our high risk family members, those who didn’t have the chance to properly mourn, or the community I work tirelessly to protect. Forgive me if I can’t tell the difference between “Crazy Conspiracy Theorists” & my own family anymore. I’m all out of laughter & olive branches.

2022.01.25 19:43 GhostiePhantom What's up with the dining situation on campus?
Everytime I go looking for food around lunchtime (let's say noon), the places here are either out of food, or closed. Specifically the BMU and Creekside.
What's up with that?
Can the school not keep these places employed or stocked? Or is it something else? If there are better places to go... What are they?

I'd love to learn moer about cooking through the auditory medium of podcasts, but I dislike the common unscripted and haphhazard organization of most podcasts where the hosts spend a good portion of time talking about their dating life or making in-jokes.
Does anyone know any good, informative and to-the-point podcasts about cooking?

Yea, well, I'm super grossed out by that growth in her pointy chin. Is it a mole? An exploded zit? (Weve all had them) or what? She has to realize that people do gross things, and dont realize. Maybe he should have pointed and laughed at her zit?

2022.01.25 19:43 weightygh0st What next :(
Was wearing a deprogrammer from my dentist for 2 weeks straight 24/7.
Didn't help alleviate any symptoms and I'm still in loads of pain. He suggested the deprogrammer would have alleviated symptoms if they were muscle related.
Seeing tmj specialist on Thursday but with a lot less hope bc the dentist today seems to feel this is likely neurological related now. What the likelihood this can still be tmj related?
I've got tinnitus turned hyperacusis over night after just 2 doses of amitriptyline:( praying it was coincidence and maybe my jaw shifted weird that night.
Everything is a mess.

2022.01.25 19:43 InquisibuttLavellan For the love of god, someone help
Alright, I've been trying to run a server on Nitrado for a few days now. I have mods that I tested out in Single Player first, they are all up to date and loaded correctly.
Nitrado says my server is online, server check shows no errors.
Battlemetrics shows my server is online and responsive to queries.
I am able to use the IP to favorite the server from Steam.
WHERE THE ISSUE LIES: When I try to connect through steam, it says "Server Unresponsive", OR it will give the error "Server: is not currently playing on any game server." When I try to connect through Nitrado, Ark will immediately respond with "Connection Lost/Server timed out". When I try to connect through Battlemetrics, Ark just freezes and will not even show that it is attempting to connect to the server.
I have tried EVERYTHING.
I do not have any portforwarding on my end, because I'm renting a server, I shouldn't have to forward the port. But I have tried the DNS solution, I've run both Steam and Ark as Administrator, I've uninstalled Ark, I've verified the installation, I've tried to run the server all Vanilla, I've made sure it was stopped before I made any changes, I've waited multiple times for the server to have been online for a full 24 hours before attempting to connect... I've tried EVERYTHING.
Again: Nitrado and Battlemetrics show my server is online and healthy. Steam CAN find my server and shows that it is there. It just... won't... connect.
I've reached out to Nitrado customer support, and they have confirmed my server is online and responsive to pings, so there is nothing they can do.

We got a tip in modmail about this one. It's got a lot of discord links too.
Report to discord. This post explains how to report without joining the server. People have had their discord accounts banned for joining certain servers only in order to report them. Basically, replace the the xxx of link address with discord.com/channels/000000000000000000/000000000000000000/000000000000000000 (that's 18 digits each).

2022.01.25 19:43 BannerTortoise Kamen Rider Idol fanfic
So I can't draw for toffee. Instead of making fanart, I turn to another form of showing my appreciation of something I'm into, fanfiction. I like to write my versions or add-ons to stories. Now my point, last year I started to write a continuation for Kamen Rider Build because, at the time, that was my favourite rider series, still in my top 5. But recently, I decided to write my own series. If you read the title, you should already have an idea.
So, this post is basically to advertise, for lack of a better word, my series. I will be going over the basics of what I have, and what I plan to do with it, without spoiling on the chance that you are interested.
20 years from the present day, the city of Taiyobe, the Sun City, was attacked by a race of beings known as the Pariah, creatures born from those that are thrown aside, and fuelled by the negativity of others. These creatures were fought and defeated by the hero, Kamen Rider Idol. Before the Pariah could complete a ritual to revive a dark god, Idol defeated them, at the cost of his own life.
20 years now in the present, the Pariah have returned, seemingly to reenact their prior plans and revive their god. Fortunately, the son of the late Idol has taken up the mantle to be the next Kamen Rider Idol, and finish the fight started all those years ago.
The gimmick of the series is small statue-like pieces called Idols, hence where Idol gets the name. They are based on animals, both real and mythological, and are used to power the Symbol Driver. The user places them in the center of the driver and twists them into place to lock them into the belt. Like with the Wizard driver, they push a switch at the side to tilt the idol vertically to transform.
Each rider has one idol to use for the base form. They are able to change forms without disengaging the system by pushing the opposite switch down and replacing the idol without twisting the first one, then pushing the first switch down.
The idols can be used to create special, and stronger Pariah, while also being used for super forms for Riders.
Asahi Jiro/Kamen Rider Idol
Status: Main rider
Description: A fun-loving, and carefree guy, Asahi comes from a family of wealth, but enjoys the little things. He was to live up to the memory of the late father he never knew and become a Kamen Rider he'd be proud of.
James Frost/Kamen Rider Fang
Status: Secondary rider
Description: Hailing from a foreign land, James is stand-offish and keeps to himself. Working as a bouncer, he is on a quest to track down and destroy every last Pariah, while also having a vendetta against Idol.
Itosasaki Kichi/Kamen Rider Grace
Status: Tertiary rider
Description: The older cousin of Asahi, Kichi is hardworking and determined. She uses her high education, and expertise to solve her problems, rather than let them get her down, and risk halting her progress.
The villains are a race of creatures own as Pariah. The Pariah are monsters made from the darkness in people's hearts. While some Pariah are just faceless mooks free to be bossed around and controlled, some Pariah can be granted power by the use of an Idol, changing their appearance to reflect the motif, as well as a new personality. The Pariah feed of the feelings of isolation and dread in people's hearts, turning them to dust after being fed, or in some cases, able to turn them into a standard Pariah mook.
The Pariah are led by three leaders, all humans, each in possession of an idol, the Cobra, Bat, and Spider idols. They share a Symbol Driver between them, meaning only one could become a rider at a time. Their goal is to perform the ritual that was denied 20 years ago and revive their dark god, Gual. Said god has the power to revert the world into a darkness factory, providing infinite food to the Pariah, while killing off any remaining humans, and turning those that survive into Pariah.
I wanted to have a unique setting, something similar to Fuuto from W, how it was the Windy City. Using this I went with Taiyobe, the Sun City, something with its own design and layout, while also linking to the main Rider.
Jiro is inspired by lighthearted riders like Ejji and Takeru. I didn't want my main hero to be some broadening edgelord that's uber-violent. I want to have a main rider that is hopeful and can inspire people in their own way.
With Fang, I want him to be the opposite to Jiro in that he is more stand-offish, and to themself, but is still a good person at heart. Makoto, Hiro, Taiga, Kaito, to name a few examples of riders like this.
I've been in the fandom long enough to pick up on the meme of the bad guys using Bat, Cobra, and Spider-themed powers, so I just had to have those three as Idols for the villains to use.
The Idol statues are inspired by the full bottles from Build and Genome stamps from Revice. I originally had them called Icons, and in turn Kamen Rider Icon as the name, but then I realized they'd become confusing if put beside the eyecons from Ghost, so Idol works.
The base suit for Kamen Rider Idol is based on Kamen Rider OOOs Latorartar form, with the Lion being the complete motif for the design with added colours of red and orange to go with a fire colour scheme.
Although I haven't watched it yet, I know that Kiva has a similar premise of having two riders that are father and son, but the former being dead by the time of the present story.
I hope to have the series go into themes of legacy and family bonds.
Having the main rider being the son of a previous one, and now has to continue their fight makes for an interesting idea, and the family dynamic of him coming from rich families, but is contempt with having fun with people he chooses makes him more of a character with freedom.
I won't go too into why I want to go into the family bonds idea because it's a spoiler for what I have planned, and it ties into the idea of being part of a legacy.
So this has been my 'advertisement' for my fanfic series. Please let me know what you think. It is still in the early days, as I am planning out the later chapters, and have only the first one available at the time of this post.
I'm not sure if I am allowed to post a link to the first chapter, so if you are interested, it should be available via Fanfiction.net searching for Kamen Rider Idol. If you can't find it, just comment, and I can share it. Other than that, thank you for reading my post, and I hope to hear your thoughts.
