2023.03.22 17:32 thatmanwithwhat Trying to iron out itinerary, wife's not helping hope y'all can!

SO, quick backround, my wife and I are going to Japan for a 2nd time in May, 1st time we did a lot less nature seeing and everything was a bit faster paced as we went down to Hiroshima almost immediately and then made our way back to Tokyo, within a week. Also we had packed light but this time I only plan on bringing 1 to 2 days of clothes and buying the rest there and near the end get a hardcase for baggage check. By the way this is a very rough draft,and the missus doesn't want anything to do with planning. I feel like this is surprisingly better thought out than beforehand but I appreciate any input. I know a lot of time constraint could be taken care of by starting earlier and I feel like last time I had normally woken up by like 7am everyday even without an alarm so I feel a lot of this should work it's way out just fine. I don't want to miss out seeing more motorcycles,cars and cool things but we also don't have all the time in the world as it be. Or if I should rearrange anything? THANKS!

2023.03.22 17:31 ATobiaMD A further look into: 'Final Destination'

October 12 Movie: Final Destination (2000)
On this date, October 12, 1997, John Denver was killed when his plane crashed into Monterey Bay near Pacific Grove, California. Final Destination (2000) is the first installment in the Final Destination series, a franchise of horror films involving premonitions. Unlike other horror movies, the franchise is iconic for portraying Death as the major antagonist. Specifically, the movies build on the concept that “cheating” Death is impermissible and thus, death is unavoidable.
The film chronicles the events that unfold after Alex Browning, a high school senior, and his classmates board a plane to Paris for a school trip. Shortly before departure, Alex Browning has a premonition of the plane exploding, causing him to frantically warn everyone about the flight. After being escorted off the plane by security, Alex and several of his classmates soon learn that his vision would come to life. The students’ relief of not being on the plane quickly turns to anguish as they attempt to evade Death’s final ultimatum.
How it relates to the field of psychiatry
The plot of Final Destination revolves around the concept of premonitions; a term used to describe a psychic ability to see into the future. Specifically, Alex’s vision of his plane exploding allows him and several of his peers to “cheat” Death by avoiding an untimely demise.
As an otherwise well-functioning high school senior, Alex’s premonition calls into question his ability to see into the future. Similar tropes in other movies, such as Donnie Darko, portray psychosis as a core sign of major mental illness (schizophrenia and delusional disorder). However, new onset psychosis as part of a psychiatric disorder is viewed as a diagnosis of exclusion. Therefore, one must consider a vast array of possible etiologies for Alex’s premonition.
Hallucinations that occur while falling asleep are termed “hypnagogic.” These disturbances in reality occur while one transitions from the awake to sleep state. Commonly associated with narcolepsy, hypnagogic hallucinations often occur in adolescents and are indistinguishable from reality. Other potential causes for altered reality in Alex include substance ingestion. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse (2014), 27.2% of high school students surveyed reported use of an illicit drug. Hallucinogens, inhalants, and other illicit substances are well-documented causes for psychosis in teenagers.
Following Alex’s premonition, unusual events begin to unfold in the lives of others on the plane. The events are forewarned by ‘Rocky Mountain High’ throughout the film, reminding the survivors that John Denver died in a plane crash. Thirty-nine days after the plane explosion, a
memorial service is held for victims of the tragedy. Later that evening Alex’s friend, Tod, was found strangulated to death in his bathtub. The film depicts his death as a series of events beginning with a leaky toilet; the water on the floor causes him to trip into a clothesline ultimately leading to death by strangulation. Tod’s cause of death is ultimately ruled a suicide.
Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a psychiatric condition triggered by exposure to life-threatening or horrifying personal experiences. It is characterized by persistent re-experiencing, hypervigilance, and avoidance of stimuli associated with the traumatic event. When these symptoms last longer than one month, it is diagnosed as PTSD. Acute stress disorder (ASD) is a similar diagnosis when symptoms have persisted for less than one month. PTSD carries a significant association with suicidal attempt. Perhaps Tod truly suffered from an underlying anxiety disorder stemming from the plane explosion he witnessed. One could argue that Tod’s death was a consequence of his untreated psychiatric disorder, PTSD.
Finally, the concept of Death as a personified entity has played a role in many films (The Ring, 2002) and mythologies (The Devil and Tom Walker by Washington Irving). For Alex and several other characters in the movie, Death plays a prominent role in their daily functioning. Throughout the movie, these characters work together to outsmart Death and prevent their demise. Their constant belief in this embodiment, despite no factual evidence of its existence, relates to the psychiatric condition termed delusional disorder.
Delusional disorder is the presence of one or more delusions (fixed, false beliefs) that last for at least one month. These beliefs cannot be due to a psychotic disorder (schizophrenia), mood disorder, substance use (e.g., cocaine), or other medical conditions (e.g., infections, dementia, endocrinopathies). Alex’s fixed belief in the presence of Death is consistent with a plausible delusional disorder diagnosis.
The franchise moves forward with Final Destination 2, which picks up with Clear (the last survivor of the plane explosion) voluntarily admitted to a psychiatric hospital. Evidently the role of psychiatry in the franchise is not solely implicit after all.

2023.03.22 17:30 Interesting_Radio_46 Feeling VERY anxious and discouraged. Do you think I can pull it off? Need good vibes

As the title says I've been feeling very discouraged and I wanted to ask for opinions from other people and how they see my situation (Please be honest without being cruel).
So I (24M) have been learning a lot basically since the pandemic started, I am actually a chemical engineer because I didn't have the chance to study CS or Software Engineering, I got scholarship for chemical engineering and they didn't allow me to take something else, although I thought I liked my career. When the pandemic started, everyone basically was fired so I found myself at home without a single clue on what to do next. In my country, laws were very strong about not being able to go out so you could only basically WFH.
I decided I was going to learn Python, and by that moment I had no idea what career path I wanted, so I started learning the very basics from what is scripting and interpreted language all the way to OOP in Python. The only other programmer I know told me at that moment, now that you learnt all this, why don't you learn Django?
So I started learning Django and tried to build projects but at that moment I realized there was just a lot of things I still didn't know but I kept going. But then, I had to leave my country and seek refuge. For around 1 year I didn't have a computer (Well, I didn't even had a bed tbf) so I couldn't keep on programming but I still wanted to do it. One day one person that I will always be grateful for told that he bought a new computer and was basically going to sell the older one for a cheap price so he decided to give it to me, and I started coding again. First I learnt the new version of Django, then I went on to JavaScript basics, then React, then Remix and NextJS, also SQL, MongoDB and Prisma, and a little of React Native too. I've built one project for a restaurant in my home country along with some clones. Folks, I rellay enjoy learning and building and I do it everyday.
But right now, it just doesn't seem to be enough, I've started applying to a Junior position for the first time, and it's been a month where all I get are rejection letters and I read people online that say it's time to do something different because junior developers are not needed anymore because of AI. I still study everyday and I still try to apply but I can't help but wonder if it will all be for nothing? What do you guys think?

2023.03.22 17:28 lucader881 Earth's Chosen [LitRPG] - Chapter 42

First Previous Next

42 – A possible future

[Temporary timeline, possible future.]
The portal shimmered. On the other side was the access route to the CARF, operated by unmanned machines and subroutines that not even Samantha knew what they were really there for, or who put them there in the first place. Still, the family lingered on the known side of the portal for only the least amount of time necessary before taking the plunge, deciding not to waste any rewindable time when they were this close to their target. Albert was back on full mana and the others were as ready as they could ever be.
The room on the other side, an unknown variable up until the very moment the trio emerged from the opaque portal, was empty. Albert was quick to scan it with his enhanced senses, draining a negligible amount of mana from his reserves, and confirmed that there was nobody there. It was, as predicted, an access route most people didn’t know, its presence a well kept secret. There were no windows to the outside, just a single reinforced door that could only be opened from the inside using a secret code.
Samantha entered it, looking at the numbers and letters appearing on her phone in quick succession. The Quadrangle was once again making their job much easier than it would have been otherwise. Then, as the door hissed open, the absence of windows in the room suddenly made total sense. They were several hundred meters up in the air, inside a concrete cube built almost at the summit of a rocky plateau of deep red stone, tall enough that the whole valley below was clearly visible, together with the signs of yet another storm brewing at the horizon.
At the top of a few flights of stairs carved in the stone, surrounded by tiny bushes of shy green leaves cooked by the cold, a helipad was built in the side of the massive rock pillar.
“I guess it’s time to show your grandson your skills as a pilot, old man.” Samantha said.
“Finally. Time to be useful!”
They were up in the air in a matter of moments, with the old man showing no signs of being rusty in the way he handled the helicopter like it was one of his own limbs. Now it was all a matter of reaching the CARF and land on its roof, a journey that was already not very pleasant due to the conformation of the land and the path the helicopter was forced to take in order to leave the valley they were in, and was made even worse by the rapidly deteriorating meteorological conditions. The storm, previously only a dark path at the horizon, now took up almost all of the sky, with tendrils of dark clouds obscuring the sun and taking over what little blue was left with incredible speed.
Strong air currents tugged at the helicopter, making it sway and move around.
“We are heading straight into the storm, get ready because it’s gonna get very bumpy from now on.”
Right on cue, the real turbulence began. And it ramped up quickly, turning the flight into a very disorienting and frightening experience for Albert, who had never even taken a plane his whole life. He tried his best not to look down, but it didn’t help that the helicopter was of the open variety, like those used by the military just without the guns, and the wind and hail pelted him with icy cold blasts and soaked his clothes.
Beside him, his mother was impassible. It was like she wasn’t even aware of the weather and of the discomfort, instead looking around and scanning the sky in search of something, her fingers gripping the trigger of her rifle. It wasn’t long before the shield around Albert began to shimmer to protect him from the elements, but even then his mother simply kept looking, disregarding everything else.
He didn’t speak. There was enough wind and noise to drown out any conversation, but even if that hadn’t been the case he still felt that he didn’t have anything to say. He knew the plan and he knew what to do once they reached the CARF, and until then it was all a matter of waiting and keeping his eyes open, careful about whatever threat his mother was worried about.
In truth, he knew well what she was worried about. He had seen PsyOps take off flying after he wounded him at the Pylon outside of Tryte. He wondered, though, if the man would be able to fly even with this weather and this far high without trouble.
His question was soon answered.
“We got incoming!” Lloyd yelled on the internal comms, while alarm bells went off and added to the already deafening cacophony of sounds that invaded the open cabin.
The helicopter suddenly left its former straight flight pattern and the world around Albert lurched, gravity no longer working as intended for a moment, and he caught glimpse of a shadow in the clouds, like a little floating silhouette in the distance. Then the missile that had been locked onto the helicopter, responsible for the alarms and the sudden evasive maneuver shot past, chasing one of the flares his grandpa had deployed instead of hitting them.
Albert cranked both [Perception] and [Bullet Time] to the max right as his mother shifted to grab the heavy guns she had loaded on the heli before taking off. She scanned the sky, taking stock of the presence of the silhouette after a few seconds of searching, and immediately started to shoot. The explosions inside the rifle accelerated the bullets to incredible speeds, and even with a five-factor time dilation Albert was almost unable to follow their path as they shot towards the shadow in the distance.
But he saw it. He saw it ditch the rocket launcher and dodge so fast it was almost impossible to follow it. Before a shot could hit it, the shadow moved and danced around, getting closer and closer and avoiding the shots like it knew exactly where they were being aimed at before they were even fired.
Because that’s exactly what he’s doing, isn’t it? He can read minds.
Then the mental attacks started. Right when Albert was about to join the skirmish with his fireballs, that’s when he felt his mental defenses trigger. [Mental Fortress] was a passive skill, and it activated immediately in response to the attacks, drawing whatever mana it needed to fend off the alien power trying to take over his mind. He resisted the attack, but it was clear that the other two passengers had not. Samantha groaned, realizing too late that her grip on the weapon had loosened and that her rifle was now tumbling down and into the void below.
Albert didn’t help her. He shot to the control cabin of the helicopter just as they were about to lose their upright position and shook his grandfather awake before it was too late. The old man woke up with a jolt and grabbed the stick tight, trying to stabilize the helicopter before he lost control of their flight. As he did so, Albert ran back to the open section and tracked the movements of the attacker, readying fireball after fireball and making them split into two right as they were about to be dodged.
There was a plan to deal with PsyOps, which made use of his telepathic powers to trick him into a false sense of security. Samantha made her firing patters more predictable. Albert kept throwing with just enough accuracy to scare but not to hit the flying man. After a while the fireballs, and the hail of bullets from Sam’s many weapons (she had packed many more than she could ever use for the occasion) forced the psion into a predictable flight pattern.
Then Samantha made her next shot a bit too easy to read, displaying it clearly in the front of her mind.
The psion bought it, dodging right where albert was aiming his next shot.
Both fireballs managed to hit, and the shadow seemed to fall, but then it resumed flying and disappeared into the storm.
“Shit. He’s still flying! How far is the CARF?” Samantha yelled.
“5 minutes out! Can you hold on?” Lloyd replied.
“Of course. You keep flying!” She said, and turned to Albert, who had disabled the time dilation skill to listen in. “It’s okay. This is all within plans.”
She was heaving, clearly fatigued after having been mentally attacked by the psion. “But! Another attack and I’m out.” She said, spitting some blood from a ruptured capillary in the back of her nose. “Fuck that guy. Listen, you nicked him. Good job. Now, we just fly straight and if you see anything move – shoot it.”
There they saw it, the helipad at the top of the CARF. It was a bright green circle, drawn in a special metamaterial that could be visible in any weather, glowing in a field of utter black. All around the descending helicopter was only darkness, but it was not because it was night – it was barely afternoon after all – but it was the storm that had robbed the day of its light. The powerful spotlights both on the helicopter and on the roof of the CARF, around the landing pad, barely managed to penetrate a few meters of darkness before the rain and hail ate their glow and swallowed it.
The whole roof was a blurry shadow of blacker black, without edge.
“Stay close.” Sam ordered, and the helicopter’s engines died, and the lights stayed on. They hopped off together, but when they went to the cabin to see why Lloyd was not joining him, they found it empty.
“Something is wrong.”
Albert looked around. Then he felt something.
He turned to face his mother. She was gone. What he had felt was a rush of space mana, and it was too late now to activate his Hazegem – even in bullet time – because a powerful force had sent him flying and his grip on the gem loosened. It tumbled on the ground, a luminous dot of purple.
But Albert was still outside the teleportation wards of the CARF. He tried to use teleportation to disappear in a hurry and reappear right where the gem was to snatch it and rewind before it was too late.
A fatal mistake, because as he concentrated on the Teleportation Map, his mental defenses went momentarily down. That’s when PsyOps attacked.
As images of his own plan to take down the psion flashed his awareness, mental attacks digging through his brain and finding old memories, the world shifted. He was falling. In his mind the conversation he had with his mother and grandfather played again and again, while Albert thrashed on the ground, spasming and convulsing. Then, as semblance of reason returned to his mind, he realized that he had indeed teleported and was clutching the gem in his hand.
But he also felt pain flaring in his arm. There was a boot there, he could only see the boot, pushing him down against the wet concrete. It ground and pressed until his hand was forced to open from the pressure on his tendons, unable as he was to use any skill with his mind turned to mush like that.
It was now or never. He struggled to push mana into the gem, feeling it activate.
PsyOps bent down to examine the Hazegem. He hummed. “So this is how you planned to take me down, eh? Interesting.”
He poured his own psionic energy into it, right when the gem activated.
Instead of Albert traveling to the past, PsyOps did. He appeared right at the CARF, alone, in the past.
“What the fuck?”
But it didn’t take him long to understand, not with the memories he now had. Pocketing the now unusable gem until its cooldown was over, PsyOps took flight, determined to kill Albert before he even had a chance to enact his plan. He knew where he was now.
“Albert, if you ever need to rewind, rewind back to this moment. If you do that we’ll see you disappear before our eyes and then teleport in, right?”
“Yes, that’s how it looks from the—”
Silence. Suddenly Albert looked distressed, as if in a state of panic.
“Shit. The Hazegem is gone.”
Then there was the sound of a phone ringing.
“Were you expecting calls?” Lloyd asked.
Samantha took out her phone. “This is impossible.” She muttered.
The others looked at the screen. The Quadrangle itself was calling her.

2023.03.22 17:28 ATobiaMD A further look into: 'Event Horizon'

Movie: Event Horizon (1997)
Why not start the weekend off with a Sam Neill double feature and have Event Horizon follow In the Mouth of Madness?! Taking place in 2047, Event Horizon depicts the events surrounding the ill-fatal rescue mission embarked on by the Lewis and Clark in response to distress signals dispatched by the Event Horizon, a ship that disappeared for seven years. The vessel had ventured into an experimental flight to test a gravity drive, which if successful, would decrease the travel time between two points in the universe. Upon reaching the Event Horizon, many sinister events take place revealing the events and remnants of the crew of the previous mission. Slowly, the crew of the Lewis and Clark are pulled into the hallucinogenic trances of the Event Horizon with some of the lives of the crew being claimed. Desperate measures are taken to return to Earth, which unfortunately prove futile.
How it relates to the field of psychiatry
One of the most striking parts of Event Horizon are the hallucinations envisioned by the members of the Lewis and Clark. While hallucinations are often synonymous with psychotic disorders, general medical conditions and substance abuse must first be ruled out. In the film, it is possible that the hallucinations be due to delirium induced by hypoxia. Many of the hallucinations of the crew members began when they entered the Event Horizon and had less than a day of usable oxygen for the entire crew. The impact of being in stasis, whether from hypoxia or electrolyte abnormalities (inadequate intake), could also have led to delirium. Of note, at the end of the film, Starck awakens from an over-two-month period of stasis with a delusion that Dr. Weir is impersonating one of the rescue workers. This particular type of delusion is known as Fregoli syndrome.
The hallucinations, in Dr. Weir’s case, could also be as a result of pathologic grief. While adaptive bereavement may include guilt over not spending enough time with the deceased while they were still alive and to hear the voice of the deceased, it is pathologic when the guilt becomes pervasive and persistent or when psychotic features develop. In Dr. Weir’s case, his immense guilt over his wife committing suicide results in hallucinations of her insisting that he stay on the Event Horizon.
The character of Ensign Justin depicts the use of dissociation as a defense mechanism. After witnessing horrid images from the gravity core, he enters a catatonic state. When the catatonia resolves, he demonstrates Acute Stress Disorder, constantly reliving the images he saw. This leads him to attempt suicide. His means underscores the principle that men use more lethal mechanisms for suicide, as he tried to leave the ship without a space suit. It’s interesting that a crew member on a ship named Lewis and Clark would prompt a discussion of suicide, as its namesake, Meriwether Lewis, was found with two gunshot wounds at a roadside inn at Grinder's Stand, Tennessee on this very date in 1809. He died the next morning on October 11, 206 years ago.

2023.03.22 17:26 yccheok Can anyone recommend a good cheap samsung phone which I can use for development & testing?

Time-to-time, I receive complaints from users (Mostly Samsung phones) on certain things are not working
- Copy and paste menu doesn't appear in EditText.
- EditText random cursor move sometimes.
Currently, my only Android phone is a Pixel phone with Android 9
I was thinking to get a cheap Samsung phone, with latest Android 13, only for development and testing purpose. But, Samsung phone seems to have zillions of different models. It is difficult to choose which to which.
Can anyone recommend a good cheap samsung phone which I can use for development & testing?

2023.03.22 17:26 ivelostmynotes I want to travel internationally (16F)

I’ve been interested in traveling to a certain country for about a year. I’ve never travelled so far, especially alone. But I want to. And I’m not sure how to bring it up to my parents. I’ll have my license in a few months. And I’m pretty responsible. I’m fluent in a second language and somewhat fluent in the language spoken in this country. My grades are good and I volunteer. There’s no reason why my parents wouldn’t let me go except for my mental illness. But I’m responsible taking my medication. I can afford the plane ticket with my own money. The country is in South America (I live in NA) and it’s a fairly long flight. But this country is, as far as I know from people I’ve spoken to who have went, quite friendly and safe. I also look to stay in a more rural province. There was also gonna be a school trip to another country that I was gonna take and my parents were gonna let me (it was for school), but I couldn’t cause we Basically, I’m looking for a way to convince my parents to let me go. Because I know traveling international is a big deal but I’m not sure how to convince them it’s a good idea. I’d even be fine waiting until I’m an adult but I don’t know if they’ll let me then either.

2023.03.22 17:25 Awkwardturtle13 Landlord withholding Security Deposit Deposit after 21 days. Any Advice for those who have gone through the same thing?

I know this is not a legal sub, but I figured any advice from anyone who lives in the same city and has gone through the same thing could be be pretty helpful.
I was renting a converted garage(not sure if it's permitted) for pretty cheap, which is why I stayed there so long. The place was kind of a dump: cracked floors everywhere, cracked ceiling, windows that are very high up and super old/barely close, the main door didn't lock properly, one of the stove burner's doesn't work, the microwave crapped out and she didn't replace it etc. Lastly and most importantly, the closet area which is behind where the garage door is leaked every time it rained, which then allowed mold to grow on the wall and carpet. I was not aware of this until my move out as I had dresser's and clothes in there(which btw the mold ruined one of my dresser's). The shower is also very far past its life and was when I moved in, it's a plastic shower and the seals were coming undone and allowing mold to grow in there despite regular cleaning. Also, they did provide a space heather but there is no central heating. The ladder to the loft also came loose and nearly fell several times. There are several more issues.
The landlord lives in another state and rents out the garage and the main house. about 2 weeks ago they contacted me saying they were pissed because they found rats and it cost them $800 for abatement. There were absolutely no rats while I lived there, I am terrified of them so I would have said something. There have been contractors in and out since I started moving out( I had 3 weeks left on the lease so I slowly moved into my new place and let the landlords friend bring contractors, stupid I know, I was trying to be nice), so who knows if they left the door open/what they brought in there. Also, the place is located along the the alleyway, where there are garbage bins everywhere, and the neighbors have a bunch of chickens right along the fence line(Having chickens myself, I have read that they attract rodents because they love their food). Also, a mutual friend I have with the person in the front house mentioned they saw rats in their place. I'm pretty sure the rat problem is on my landlord to pay for as they can not prove it was my fault for the infestation.
They also tried to tell me that the wet carpet and mold in the closet is from an animal urinating in there, which is not true and I have pictures of the work the contractor had done in there before my lease was even up. They said they were going to send me a bill for this issue too.
It has been 25 days and after arguing with my landlord about giving my deposit back, they are now illegally withholding it and have not responded to my last message. I sent a demand letter yesterday. I did clean the place but I won't lie, it wasn't cleaned immaculately, but I did not damage anything. I dusted, vacuumed, scrubbed etc. but I wouldn't say it was as good as a professional job. I would have been fine with a cleaning fee if they would have sent me a receipt within the 21 days. The stove burner was broken when I moved in and I have proof of that, but they told me it cost them $300 to fix which is BS as I left them the part to fix it, I just didn't know how to do it myself. They said they will be billing me for that too.
What should I do besides take them to small claims? Can I report them to development services and request an inspection? If it's not permitted can I report them somewhere? Also, should I text their friend that was helping them to ask her to give me my deposit back? Idk I feel like that would be pretty embarrassing if my friend found out I was illegally holding my tenants deposit lol. I am worried about the next tenant as I met the potential next renter and she is a sweet younger woman in college and I do not want her to be taken advantage of as well when she goes to move out. Plus, knowing how cheap the landlord is, they are just going to paint over the mold and not fix the shower.

Thanks so much in advance for any advice!

So for some context, my grandma is 98 and her younger sister (95) just passed away last week and was the last person from my grandma's generation that was still alive. My grandma's husband, brother, and all her friends have passed away already throughout the last 10 years.
My grandma's sister lived across the country and my grandma can't even do a 1 hour car ride, let alone any flights, so there was no way she would have been able to make it to the funeral. She also has already been having lots of trouble getting to sleep lately. So my grandma's children (my mom, aunt, and uncle) have not wanted to tell her because they think she won't be able to sleep after finding out and her health will decline as a result.
I talked to my aunt about it, and how I felt it was wrong that they haven't told my grandma yet, and she basically said it will kill her if she finds out, and I get where she is coming from but it just feels wrong. My grandma and her sister would talk on the phone once or twice a week so I don't know how they can realistically keep this going for too long.
Also for what it's worth, my grandma and her sister have been through A LOT together. They were in the concentration camps together after getting split up from the rest of their family and there were many times when my grandma's sister wanted to give up but my grandma forced her to keep on going. Just bringing this up to provide some more context on the type of bond that they had.
It's gotten to the point where I want to tell my family that if they don't tell her, I'll just do it myself. I do understand their concerns, but not telling her about it just seems wrong. So WIBTA for giving my family that ultimatum?

2023.03.22 17:21 JavierLoustaunau Parts and Labor: brainstorming some repair and resell rules.

Salvaging some rules from the ruins of the Book (hidden important rules)
Without the help of an experienced Fixer or one of their Night Markets, only items up to Premium can be purchased. (100 EB)
This means you cannot 'just buy' anything you want you need to find it at a night market (with some luck) or have a fixer help you get it. This will be important in online auction rules and repair rules.

Item Repair
The DV and amount of time it takes you to repair a damaged/destroyed item with a TECH Skill to perfect condition is based on the Price Category of the item: Cheap/Everyday: DV9, 1 Hour. Costly: DV13, 6 Hours. Premium: DV17, 1 Day. Expensive: DV21, 1 Week. Very Expensive: DV24, 2 Weeks. Luxury: DV29, 1 Month. Super Luxury: DV29, 1 Month per 10,000eb of Item Price. On a failed roll, halfway through the repair, you realize that you'll have to start the repair from scratch.
The basis for repair home rule later on and going to a repair shop.
Item Repair Parts and Labor
After making a roll to repair an item, if you failed, you can spend 10% of the item's cost to increase your result by one. Maximum is +10 aka 100% of the item's cost. Why would you pay 100% instead of buying a new one? Because you need a Fixer to find items over 100 EB.
Repairing something usually requires a mixture of solvents, resins, paints, 3d printed parts, salvaged parts and things bought from local stores. A good roll means 'you used what you had lying around' and paid nothing while spending EB means you need more material for your printer, more screws, more glue, more duct tape, etc.
Going to a repair shop.
Repairing a damaged item costs 50% of it's usual cost, or 100% to increase how fast it is repaired. For example repairing an EXPENSIVE item would cost 250 EB (50%) or 500 EB if you need it in 1 day instead of 1 week. This saves you the trouble of hunting down a new one in the night markets or through your contacts.
New Gear (Armor Patches)
Kevlar Patch: Repairs one piece of armor (leathers, kevlar, light armorjack, bodyweight suit) recovering up to 2 lost SP. A piece of armor can only be patched once until it is repaired. 20 EB (Everyday).
Polymer Plate: Repairs one piece of armor (medium armorjack, heavy armorjack) recovering up to 3 lost SP. A piece of armor can only be patched once until it is repaired. 50 EB (Costly)
Alloy Plate: Repairs one piece of armor (flack, metalgear) recovering up to 4 lost SP. A piece of armor can only be patched once until it is repaired. 100 EB (Premium).
Patching armor during combat would require an entire round where you do not take any damage. If you take damage before the start of your next round, you are interrupted and do not patch your armor. This means you need good cover, powerful armor or to hide in order to not get interrupted.
FXR Auctions
Do not know a fixer? Be your own fixer! (See official FAQ for brokering with a real flesh and blood fixer).
FXR is an app that allows people to post items up for auction. Once per week you can either put up an item for auction or you can try to purchase an item. This will involve a fortune roll and will be delivered either by drone, drop box code, market stall or currier.
Fortune Roll: You either buy or sell your item at 50% of it's cost + 1d10*10%.
Delivery: Drone or Currier is usually 20 EB. Pickup at a mail box with a code or from a market is usually free.
FXR ADS: When selling you can pay 50 EB you can make 2 fortune rolls and keep the higher number.
Chicken: If a final price is too high, you can always not buy it and somebody else will win the auction. If a price is too low, too bad, you agreed to sell it.
Ghosting a client: There are no rules for ripping somebody off for two reasons. The first is that it should only happen at storyteller discretion. The second is the urban legend of the "MY KAWAI BAKER CHALLENGE" where somebody thought they where ripping off a 13 year old girl (because of their avatar) but in fact they ripped off a SOLO CYBERPSYCHO who loves baking. The reason this is considered an urban legend despite the news having covered it is that no body was ever found, just a cryptic review on the seller's account saying 'this is what happens when you do not deliver, 1 star because I'm not allowed to leave 0 stars'.
Hopefully this will be part of a free CHOOMBOOK this year which will contain no power creep but lots of street level activities, resources and homebrew rules.

2023.03.22 17:19 fbglima Cheapest AA ticket before Apr 6?

Hey AAdmirals,
Trying to retain/convert as much of a soon-expiring AA travel credits as possible by spending as little of it as possible on a flight segment which needs to take place before April 6, 2023, and which I do not plan on taking (can be from anywhere to anywhere). Anyone have any ideas on most affordable AA segments?

2023.03.22 17:19 ParkingTip6432 ISO somewhere to repair/replace my transmission

So, long story short, I got scammed on a car. I bought it 2 months ago and have put barely any miles on it as my job is really close to my house. Now the transmission needs to be replaced, amongst other things, but this is the big one.
I was quoted an exorbitant amount by a different dealership (the dealership I bought it from was booked up and I’m supposed to be moving out of state soon, and also I don’t trust them now) that I frankly just can’t afford
Where’s a good-enough place to get a new transmission for relatively cheap? I know it’s going to be expensive, but buying a new car is out of the question at the moment as I have very little savings and bad credit.
I’m in a really tough spot and could use a little guidance. I feel really dumb and don’t know how these kinds of things work…

2023.03.22 17:17 extacy1375 Was talking to a worker in my local Best Buy & about the Rocky collection

I went into my local Best Buy recently, just to see for my self what the physical media section looked like. I have not been in that store for a couple years now.
They had a nice sized, 2 sided aisle, filled with movies, about a 60/40 split between bluray/4K. They also had near the registers 2 stand alone, new release stands.
When I went to the aisle, 1 whole side of it was taped off, but the movies were visible on the shelfs. I just couldn't browse that side. I kept checking my Amazon wish list for price comparisons. Amazon beat them on about 95% of the movies I had. It ranged from $2-$5 on single discs. I noticed a worker in the aisle moving the discs around as I was browsing.
I asked him if they are getting rid of the physical media section. He said they are moving it to another area and will not be this big of an aisle anymore. He said they are making the current area available to sell bicycles. I said what?!? He laughed and said yea. I noticed on my way in they were selling BBQ's as well.
I talked with him a while. He was also an avid movie collector. We discussed a lot about 4K and the like. He knew his stuff. That was surprising and refreshing to hear.
I asked him about the Rocky collection, as I didn't see it. He said they pulled it from shelves due to audio issues. He even finished my line as I was saying like Mad Max. Again, he knew his stuff. He than asked if Amazon is still selling it and I said yes. We both laughed. We finished our convo with him saying it wouldn't surprise him one bit if that this time next year, there will be NO physical media for sale in the store.
I walked out of there with American Werewolf in London 4K at $23, Alita: Battle Angel 4K for $8(just too cheap not to) and 1408 reg old bluray for $6(liked the movie)
The store was in the NYC area.
Just wanted to share that info/experience with ya's.

2023.03.22 17:17 MsWeather Letters to the Editor: The hotter, pricier world that awaits if we don’t stop using fossil fuels!/format/webp/quality/80/
To the editor: I appreciate your editorial exhorting us, in light of the latest United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report, to reduce fossil fuel usage a lot faster. Maybe it would help to tell deniers how much they are hurting their pocketbooks, since many people care more about money than anything else.
Here are just a few examples of what will happen when 110-degree days are more common:
The motto for fossil fuels should be, “You pay now, and you pay later.”
Edward Dignan, Long Beach
To the editor: The Times makes a pious call for officials at all levels of government to do whatever they can to dismantle the dangerous machinery of fossil fuels.
Why not lead by example? The Times’ editorial board should reveal what its members are doing to fight climate change. How many of you drive electric cars, use only electric appliances, don’t eat meat or never take an airplane flight?
If you are going to talk the talk, demonstrate how you walk the walk (or take public transportation).
Gerry Swider, Sherman Oaks
To the editor: What will it take to get us to move at the pace required to avert the worst effects of climate change? It will take everyone talking about, voting on, demonstrating for and writing, painting, shouting and performing about climate action.
Don’t thank activists for what they are doing — become an activist. Don’t wish your legislator would do something — lobby them by text and email. Don’t just wonder what you can do individually and collectively — find out and do it.
Only if we all get actively engaged will the powers that be do what is needed.
Judith Trumbo, La Cañada Flintridge

2023.03.22 17:17 francescalinetti Are you planning to visit Medellin and looking for affordable options to explore nearby towns?

You're in luck! I gotta say Medellin has changed a lot since the 80's and the old generalized idea of it being a crime city has been left behind. Today, it's a bustling city that offers a wide range of activities and attractions for tourists. In recent years, Medellin has become a popular destination for travelers from all over the world since the city is known for its year-round spring-like weather, beautiful parks, friendly people, and delicious food.
The transformation of Medellin has been remarkable. The city has gone from being known as the most dangerous city in the world to becoming a model for urban transformation. In 2013, Medellin was named the "most innovative city" in the world by the Wall Street Journal. And let me tell you, the city has invested heavily in infrastructure, public spaces, and education, which has made it a hub for culture, business, and tourism.
But did you know that Medellin is also a great base to explore nearby towns and engage in local activities? One of the best things about Medellin is its affordability. You can find cheap accommodation and food easily, making it an excellent option for budget travelers. By taking advantage of the city's affordable prices, you can explore nearby towns without breaking the bank.
For example, you can visit Guatape, a really beautiful town located about two hours away from Medellin. It's known for its colorful houses, beautiful lakes, and stunning views from the top of the famous El Peñol rock. You can also try traditional Colombian food in the town's restaurants and immerse yourself in the local culture by visiting the town's markets.
Another option is Jardin, a charming town located about three hours away from Medellin. It's known for its coffee plantations, beautiful parks, and stunning waterfalls. Additionally, a short bus ride from Medellin will take you to the beautiful town of Santa Fe de Antioquia. Here, you can stroll through the cobblestone streets, admire the colonial architecture, and enjoy the local cuisine.
Off course some of the stories about Medellin’s sordid nightlife might be true, I’d say this is something most tourist cities can’t escape from, but if you’re truly interested in exploring the bright side of Colombia’s culture and discovering new places, I hope this perspective of mine helps you make informed decisions and at least interests you in doing some more research about it. Have you been to Medellín before? How was your experience?

2023.03.22 17:15 Independent-v_0398 Fault with car mixed opinions

Hi everyone apologies if not right place to post. I get a fault with my car sometimes. Happened a few times in the last couple of months. When I turn key in the ignition the car does not turn over and the engine warning light flashes. I take the key back out car starts completely fine and drives fine and no loss of power. The car is a Vw golf 1.4 tsi mk6.
I don’t work on the weekends so I though I call the AA over and ask them to plug a diagnostic machine in to see what the fault is. The patrol told me it’s a faulty ignition coil and it’s a fairly cheap fix and the car is safe to drive. As I am an AA gold member I am covered up to £535 on repairs he recommended me to go Halfords as its one of their network repairers. I was reluctant to go because I’ve heard so many negative stories about places like Halfords and kwik fit but as he said it was not costly I decided to take it there.
Left it at Halfords and they told me it’s a engine compression issue and the AA won’t cover entire costs as its above £500. I called the AA helpline and the gentleman on the phone assured me it’s got nothing to do with engine compression and it’s an electrical fault and he told me to explain this to the garage. I called the garage and told them the exact problem and they were adamant its engine compression and vehicle is misfiring so I told them I’d take the car back and think about it and they said fine. Not once they told me it is unsafe to drive.
I drove the car to my local garage who deals with my mot and service and he’s going to have a look at my car next week.
I also called one of my colleagues whose dad is a mechanic and asked him if he knows what an engine compression issue is and he advised me not to drive it. It could either be a cheap problem like a sticky valve or a major issue. I checked engine oil and coolant levels and they are fine, not sure if that has anything to do with compression?
Since I called AA from 14th March I’ve not had any trouble starting engine first time. At this point I’m tempted to take it to my local VW garage for a second opinion as they have thousands of codes or shall I just wait till next week for my local mechanic to have a look?

2023.03.22 17:13 NoLemon5426 Iceland Air is expanding winter service next winter. Pack your Cocoa Puffs!

Fluff post:
For the first time during winter, daily flights will happen from NY and Boston. There will be up to 11 a week out of Boston (Logan) and 21 out of NYC (assuming JFK & EWR.) There are also new flights in and out of mainland Europe.
Finally, a solution to the "What American things would Icelanders want?" inquiries. The answer is General Mills Cocoa Puffs. Now unavailable in parts of Europe due to regulations on ingredients, Nestlé has conjured up a suckier, less delicious version that is being sold nationwide. Even as the price dips as low as 57 cents per box, the people of Iceland have soundly rejected this alleged monstrosity. Maybe save some space in your luggage, if you know someone who might want the American corn syrup laden food.

2023.03.22 17:12 AlmightyDennis Should I buy this Marshall JCM 2000 Dual Super Lead?

I found in facebook a second hand JCM 2000 at around 750 dollars (which is cheap given my currency is from latin america) and Im not sure if I should buy the JCM 2000 or wait for a JCM 800/900 to pass around at a similar price in the second hand market.
I'll use it to play live and already have the cabinet.
What are the main differences between those 3 models?

2023.03.22 17:08 MelSpk Asian Rhinoplasty in Turkey (Istanbul)

Hey everyone, Im 27/f from Canada and I have wanted to get rhinoplasty for manyyyy years. I can finally afford the procedure Im considering Turkey as one of my destinations. I also love to travel so this would be a great opportunity to spend a few weeks in a new country!
Im looking for a surgeon in Istanbul that has experience working with Asian noses. Ideally, I want a raised nasal bridge (which is non-existent with my Filipino nose lol) and to narrow my nostrils. Im very against having a silicone implant but I know that they can insert rib/ear cartilage instead which is more appealing to me. Im planning to fly to Turkey (from Toronto) for my procedure.
Is there anything I should be aware of before deciding on flying to Turkey for my procedure? How easy is it to navigate alone around Turkey? I will be travelling solo!
Im also open to all inclusive packages but I don't mind booking my own flights/accommodation/transportation aswell. Im open to hearing all recommendations! Thank you <3
