Dented Yamaha gas tank fix?
No idea what happened. :( Just noticed it on my bike this morning. Home-fix possible? Take to a shop and deal with insurance?

2023.06.03 02:28 obviousoak Current solar undersized. Have to rebuild roof anyway. Add solar even if it means losing NEM 2.0?

Hey solar redditors. So many of us worked so hard to get grandfathered in to NEM 2.0. Now I’m trying to decide if I’m paranoid and it’s worth it to lose it in my case.
Current system is 5 years old and was right size for our usage. Tru-up last year we owed about three hundred. Not bad for power the whole year.
But. This tru up we’re going to have added an electric plug in car. And the big thing, we have major damage to rebuild which wasn’t expected before the April 3.0 deadline. That means the roof some of the solar panels are on has to be rebuilt ground up. On top of it we’re probably going to cap off the gas line rather than repair and replace that, the gas heater, and the gas water heater. So that will all be new electric draw.
With rebuilding the roof anyway we can get a tax credit on that part of the work by making it a new solar roof. And we have so much more electric needs coming with replacements.
(I’m assuming a new solar installation added to our existing inverters and panels will kick us into 3.0, because I can’t find anything but the increase rules from 1.0)
Anyone want to weigh in here? Or point us at calculators to decide if something is worth it? TL;Dr We’re balancing tax credit and increased production for drastically higher draw with losing NEM 2.0

2023.06.03 02:27 InvariantClass The cost of state all electric requirements

So my state has recently banned natural gas connections for new projects for environmental reasons and also recently required all commerial spaces to use heat pumps (above a certain size).
For my particular small restaurant project which would have cost 500k it went up to 800k of which 20k was for the water heater. So 300k because of these new policies. It's gonna be hard for a lot of small businesses to get started here now even before considering increased interest rates. Businesses and locations that are grandfather in have a significant advantage here. That's 300k that could go to countless other things.
In addition, because more electricity is needed a larger system has to be installed which will take 9 months to arrive.
Of course there is always the option of finding a location with those features and renovating it... although often those locations won't quite meet your concepts specs. Also I think if it changes to much then you'd be forced to use electric and the more expensive water heater.
I am not trying to complain. I am generally liberal with a lot of ideas but I did want to point out how these new regulations can seriously hurt the local economy when projects cost 40% more.

2023.06.03 02:26 mxsifr Found this on an old laptop, inspired by one of my first CDDA runs a few major versions ago (yes I save scummed my first night)

Day 1. I guess no one is ever going to read this. I’m not even sure if this is being recorded… somewhere. The Internet has been down since all this started. Is there still a cloud? I found this laptop, but it doesn’t work like any computer I’ve used before. I don’t even know if this is a real notepad app.
What the fuck is “vim”?
Sorry… I’ve never written a diary before. I’m not used to having enough time to keep a diary.
Looks like I spoke too soon. Another explosion…
Day 2. Something weird happened last night. I’m trying not to think about it. There's one other person at the shelter here, Merlin. He smokes a lot of cigarettes, basically all the time.
Day 3. Taking inventory. I managed to get into one of the houses on the outskirts of town last night. Mostly I snuck through, only had to take one down with a pointy stick. It was a kid... I got in through an open window, tied a sheet around my shoulders, and stuffed in everything I could before running back.
I feel a little like a hoarder going over things like this, but these are now my only posessions in the world, so I’d better keep track of them:
Day 4. Saw a weird dog today.
Day 5. The blue house on the corner has bugs in the basement. Big, mean bugs. Hulking, skittering roaches that screamed bloody murder…
What is happening?
I managed to get out and shut the door, so I wrote a note on the door just in case some unlucky soul stumbles on it later.
Day 6. Found a motorcycle and managed to get it back to the shelter without dying. That might come in handy.
Day 7. If this is the apocalypse, it's surprisingly routine already. I wile away the daylight reading comic books and survival manuals so I can sneak into the city at night. I break into a house, tie a makeshift sling from some curtains and scoop whatever looks useful or edible into it. I always bring some gallon jugs in my walkabout bag to fill with water to boil from their heaters and toilet basins. I usually have to kill and scrap with at least five of them per night. Sometimes it gets bad and I have to take out my pistol. When I get home, I take an aspirin, disinfect and bandage my wounds, reload my pistol magazines, write in here and go to bed.
Day 12. Ever had a pickle and spam sandwich? Nowhere near as bad as you might expect. Better than starving to death, that’s for sure. Tonight I’m washing it down with some room-temperature beer, celebrating my first week.
Day 13. I woke up to one of them on top of me today. Another fucking corpse for the pit out back. I think they can smell us. One of them got Merlin pretty bad, but he’s just standing outside where it happened smoking. He won’t say anything to me. I ripped up some curtains and dipped them in some bleach I found in the basement to dress the wounds… he’s really bleeding a lot.
Day 15. Saw the dog again. It was blurry, like a nightmare on an old VHS tape.
Day 19. They swarmed me today. I might need to get out of here at some point. I’ve been making an inventory of all the surrounding vehicles. Most are out of gas or otherwise inoperable.
Day 20. It took me an hour of fiddling in the pitch dark, but I managed to hotwire a sports car with all four wheels and some fuel still in the tank. Something came over me as I started driving it back to the shelter, though. I turned on the headlights, and I saw four or five of them, just walking around the street. They all turned to me, and I just gunned it. I blew through them and kept gunning it, and crashed into the side of a house.
It’s totaled.
Back to the drawing board, I guess.
Day 22. Organizing my weapons tonight. I was able to take down a loiterer in the lockroom of the pawn shop on the corner through the bars with my duct-taped knife spear, which I have dubbed "Glamdring". The hacksaw I found in the blue house’s garage made short work of the lockroom bars, and I made it back with an assortment of pistols. I unloaded everything and managed to produce two fully-loaded magazines. 34 bullets and some change… once I use those, that’s it until I scavenge some more. I rifled through the heap of clothing I’ve scavenged and found an ammo pouch to strap to my leg. I’m still not great with the pistol, and the noise is not helpful, but having it makes me feel a lot better.
Day 30. I finally made it to the fucking hardware store, and I still couldn’t find a wood saw. So much for my advanced fortifications and spear repairs. At least I’ve got all the windows boarded up, except one. It’s nice to have a little sunlight to read and sew by during the day.
Day 32. The weird dog bit me. It chased me back to the shelter and Merlin fended it off. I hope he’s okay.
Day 33. Merlin won’t come back to the shelter. He’s just standing out there, bleeding and smoking. Like always.
Day 37. Today I found some binoculars on another little kid. I think I recognized it... her.
On the way back to the shelter, I climbed up on the roof of that three-story house on the outskirts of town and took a look around. I think a plane went down in the forest. I’m going to get that bicycle I saw in front of the pawn shop and investigate. I’m only alive because Merlin saved me… maybe it’s time to pay it forward.
What else is there to do besides practice stabbing and cooking spam?
Day 40. They were all dead. One of them almost electrocuted me. The sparks started a fire and I managed to lead them into it, one by one. There was a flare gun in the cockpit and some more food in the back. But that first one... it's been over a month, and I've never seen anything like that before. I'm pretty sure it threw lightning at me. Like... on purpose. I couldn't move for a few seconds, and it just kept getting closer, I thought I...
That thing that happened... on my first night
Fuck. They’re tearing out the windows again.
What’s the point in fighting?
Day whatever the fuck it is. 59 I think. I’m still trying to process the shit that happened on day one, so does it really matter?
I can’t stop thinking about their faces. When they’re eating, because I saw one eating yesterday, it didn't know I was there and I was just.... hypnotized, I guess. But when they eat, their faces are like... caricatures, cartoons, contorted in throes of passion that could be agony or pleasure. Some of them could almost be human. Others clearly died and rotted long before this all started.
Day 60. It was me.
That first night, I saw ... myself. It was so cold out when I was falling asleep on the bench, winter’s last chill. And as I was falling asleep, I thought to myself, “This is how inexperienced idiots like you die, you know. If one of them doesn’t crawl in through the broken windows, the cold will do you instead.” But after the things I saw that day, I wasn’t sure I wanted to wake up. So I just... let myself fall asleep.
I was so, so cold. I could barely feel anything, except, then ... my heart started racing, because I realized how close I came. And I fell flailing off the bench, bruised my forehead.
I finally came to my senses and stood up, and realized there had been someone next to me on the bench.
I was there, physically, in front of myself, except dead and naked, all my clothes on the floor in front of the corpse.
No, not all of them, actually. Everything, from my jeans to my wristwatch… except the face wrap and mittens that I scrounged together from rags.
That’s right. When I woke up, I couldn’t feel my face or my hands, and before I even stood and turned back to the bench, I went and ripped up some curtains to wrap around them. So it was everything I was wearing when…
I stuffed it all in a locker and dragged the corpse outside to put it in the pile. I was panicking because I was sure Merlin would notice, but he just stood there smoking his cigarette.
Everyone is dead. The laptop, the binoculars… I took them all off the corpses of people I killed. Or, killed again, I guess. I can’t imagine it makes a difference. The kid almost killed me. I guess I killed me, too.
Day 61. Sorry. That plane crash really fucked me up. I don’t know why I thought there’d be anyone alive.
I don’t know why I’m alive. Is it just dumb luck? I’m here. I’ve adapted. For better or worse.
Day 62. They broke in through the last intact window. I just finished boarding it up. Now there’ll be no sunlight in here again unless I leave the door wide open.
I need to fucking get out of here.
Day 63. hey... tHere's another app on this computer
Day 64. It was an emergency message. It's not just me. There are other people out there. Survivors. I'm leaving tonight. I couldn't convince Merlin to come with me. How does he still have cigarettes?! Whatever... this rancid shelter will be in my past forever soon.
Some kind of huge abomination chased me out of town this afternoon. I thought I had cleared this area out. It was ... giant, like a fleshy skeleton with horrible bug eyes... I'm getting out of here. I hope it doesn't get Merlin.
The survivor hub is a month's walk away, and that's if I can't find a car on the way. Too bad my bike exploded...
I've hoarded enough gear that I can camp out to sleep through the day, and creep through the cities for supplies at night. I hope there's someone there to greet me when I arrive...

2023.06.03 02:19 bay-cleaves Pike being punks

First spring fishing trip of the year and it’s my first time fishing for pike. Slow trolled a decent sized swim bait and caught 4.. well missed 4. Every single one jumped straight up and threw the hook as soon as I got it near the kayak. One was a tank in the high 30 inches range I was pissed! I’ll be getting and using a net from now on but do all pike do this?

2023.06.03 02:06 Kephrem1 New construction (ADU) in CA/LA area voltage/panel question?

My question is what panel/voltage should I go with for a 850 sqft ADU unit in LA.
I am building an ADU unit at the back of my property in LA. The unit will have the usual appliances from HVAC system, stove water heater (gas) etc. When speaking with an electrician and my contractor they were throwing numbers around 150, 110 & 220 which was confusing me since it all seems arbitrary way of coming up with the voltage & what size panel that should be installed. With no true knowledge on this subject my immediate reaction is to go with higher vs. lower in case there is more voltage that might be needed in the future for the unit.
Can you help me learn more on this subject and recommend what should I go with for this new construction & possible pitfalls of choosing one over the other. List of few questions that I came up with below,
  1. Why/how can you just randomly choose any voltage one would like as people were throwing out 110, 150, 240?
  2. Is there an intelligent way of choosing various levels of voltage for the back unit?
  3. Given CA is pushing for all vehicles sales to be electrical by 2025 (I think) does it make sense to go with 220 in case the tenants who rent the house out have an electrical car that needs charging at home? Could this be done at lower voltage as well?
Please help me learn a bit more so I can be smart in making a decision and backing it up with facts that make sense. If there are any additional things that I should consider but I didnt ask please feel free to share you knowledge as I dont know what I dont know.
Thank you for everyone's input!

2023.06.03 02:03 fy8d6jhegq You wake up alone on a tropical island…

The Island:
It is not a desert island. It's a moderately sized, lush island. There are no large predators or dangerous wildlife (like boars or moose). There are bugs but they are only a nuisance deep in the forest. The weather is similar to Pacific islands like Hawaii. The weather can get bad but there will never be a severe storm as long as you are on the island.
It is also a partially developed island. You awaken in an open air cabana on the beach. There are lights, electricity, an unstocked bar with a mini fridge and a hard-line gas grill. Nearby you see a dock with and a covered cargo area. There is also an ATV and compatible trailer. Leading into the forest is a well maintained trail that leads to a house with a great view. The house is built in an architectural style that you enjoy. It has 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 kitchen, 1 living room and a covered porch/deck. The house doesn't have much beyond the standard furniture and cooking utensils. It does have a living room with a big screen TV, Blu-ray player, and CD playestereo. There is also a top-of-the-line computer without Internet access. It has the full Adobe Creative Suite.
You find a note describing the situation. Basically you can stay as long as you want and when you're ready to leave all you have to do is press a button down by the dock and someone will arrive to pick you up within 15 minutes. They will also handle all aspects of your return journey to wherever you were before waking up on the island. During your stay you will receive constant resupply's of essential resources. This means electricity, potable water, fuel etc. will never run out. In terms of food, your diet for the previous week will be evaluated and any ingredients used in the preparation of those meals will be considered "essential foods" that are constantly restocked.
Lastly, it is explained that you can give requests every week for 5 specialty ingredients, 5 Blu-rays/DVDs, 5 CDs, 1 videogame/program, and 1 item of your choosing. Non-networked items only. Nothing you could use to connect or communicate with the world at large. All items are delivered on the same day every week, neatly stacked under the cargo area. They are only delivered when you aren't around or observing (recording or viewing through a camera). The videogame/program will mysteriously be installed on the computer at the same time the other items are delivered. If it requires an Internet connection beyond installation, it will not work. Requests are inputted through a custom program preinstalled on the computer.
Hypothetical Questions:
  1. After learning all of this, how long do you choose to stay on the island?
  2. What special requests do you prioritize?
  3. How do you spend your time?

2023.06.03 01:41 the_mushroom_balls Got on my bike today. Fairing cracked no idea how it happened.

So I pulled my bike out of my garage today, and noticed a couple cracks near the front right of my bike to the right of the gas tank. 2015 CBR 300R. It was parked in a parking lot for a couple hours then I rode it home Tuesday night and didnt notice anything then. I definitely would have noticed. Looked at it today, wtf is this?! Frustrating not knowing how this could have happened.
It's strange how that cracked tab part almost looks like it was tried to be pulled out. My garage is locked so very unlikely anyone was in there. Maybe it was already slightly cracked and a bump in the road revealed it? So confused.
I'm baffled. Anyone seen anything like this before?

2023.06.03 01:37 lazerbem Respect Payakan (Avatar)

Why are you outcast? What happened?
It’s too painful
Payakan is a young tulkun bull, a species of sapient whale-like creatures of Pandora with a culture of absolute pacifism. When his mother was slain by the whaling operations of the invading Resources Development Administration, Payakan decided to break the Tulkun Way and tried to start up a violent rebellion against the megacorp along with some other young bulls and Metkayina Na’vi. However, this assault was a failure, with many young bulls and Na’vi being killed by the retaliation of the RDA. Payakan himself lost a fln in the battle and became outcast from his fellow tulkun due to breaking their code of nonviolence. Payakan roamed alone as an outcast for a long while afterwards, until he met the young and lonely Lo’ak and saved his life. Lo’ak became friends with Payakan, and the pair grew to become bonded as spirit brothers through their shared isolation. When Lo’ak became threatened by an RDA whaling fleet, Payakan once again broke the tulkun code. Catching the fleet off-guard with a surprise attack, Payakan’s help was decisive in defeating the fleet along with a Na’vi attack. After the fact, Payakan was allowed to return to Metkayina waters and remained in close contact with his new friend, no longer alone.
Being around 100 feet long, Payakan’s immense strength from his size is his most destructive method of attack.
Tulkun armor is incredibly strong and covers most of their dorsal side, and even their less armored parts such as the underside are still incredibly tough
Speed and Agility
Tulkun are surprisingly graceful and swift, able to swim at 25 mph. Despite his lost fin, Payakan seems to swim well.
Tulkun are said to be as intelligent as humans if not more so in some respects, and so Payakan is fairly clever despite his inhuman appearance

2023.06.03 01:24 Fabiann_02 can you possibly solve this or provide insight? (Long) (Very interesting case)

First and last post here!
This may be a long read, but I truly, truly appreciate it if everyone would stick around and add their insight to this.
Background: 21 male, 5'10, Caucasian (Scottish, Slovakian, French) Location: Canada
I have 2 sisters, 2 nephews, and 1 niece, which is important to factor in, and I'll explain why briefly.
When I was just little used to light up bright red only on my face and neck typically only in stressful or public situations (terrible social anxiety), it wasn't itchy, just hot and red and I would sweat a lot. According to my mom (54), she used to get the same thing in front of people but eventually grew out of it.
Now regarding my niece and nephews, they also get red in the face and have trouble regulating body temperature but not due to any type of anxiety, as it stands we could call it idiopathic and it resembles Lupus or maybe rosacea however - my oldest nephew also has some skin problems and my youngest often gets fevers and hives from many things but treats it with things like advil.
The above is important in MY case I believe because when I was around 13 I was put on 20mg of cipralex (2014), in October 2019 (17) I went into anaphylaxis for the first time due to amoxicillin which I took due to sinus congestion (mom also has chronically) and I had it lying around from a previous infection, the anaphylaxis scared me into not taking any medication so I abruptly cut down my cipralex and for some reason believed I wouldn't need them anymore.
After doing this, I one day woke up with the most severe depersonalisation and derealisation anyone could ever have alongside a gross number of other discontinuation symptoms which lasted over 3 months and eventually subsided after reinstating 10-15mg of the same medication, the most IMPORTANT part of this is I had developed Tinnitus and anisacoria after this AND I couldn't take the meds anymore because I developed symptoms of seratonin toxicity so I had to get off all together and just deal with it.
Fast forward to 2021-2022 and now things are serious, my body is behaving terribly since I've changed things up and it's worth mentioning that the rash / redness I used to only get on my face and neck had began to progress down to my chest and eventually to my legs but it's not itchy and only happens in the sun, in stressful situations/ conditions. That's the least of it, I began getting constipated by almost ALL foods and chicken and rice were my only tolerable foods (until they weren't), I wasn't getting rashes but it's like I developed this hypersensitivity in the signals from my stomach, it began feeling tight and caused me to be severely constipated for over 33 days (not exaggerated), my blood sugar was 1.3, you could say I was intolerant to almost everything but not allergic.
This is where things got weird, at this point I've seen almost all of the BEST specialists in Canada and been to the best hospitals which costed me a lot of money that I just happened to coincidentally have (now I don't) and a lot of time, as I mentioned I had been extremely constipated UNTIL I received saline solution VIA IV injection overnight, I got home a day later and had the most excruciatingly painful poop ever and it was disgusting - I know it was from the saline IV because this happened more than once and that was the only thing I was issued other than the mix of vitamins (Please explain this if possible!)
Now, I got the blockage out and still continued to have serious issues and kept myself near the hospitals (in Toronto), I had more needle holse in my arm than any addict ever (painful) due to the amount of blood work done but now I was down to 98 lbs from 184 (I was kind of overweight prior to all of this) and I had given up so I decided (f it, I'll have what I want) and started to intake calories again by what I thought was healthier (Boba, cauliflower bites etc) than what I used to have thankfully toronto had these options.
Anyway, this is what leads us to the most current circumstances/ situation - everything I ate / eat lots of carbs, sugar or fibre my body temperature increases and I get really gassy, my veins dilate massively, I become lethargic, low blood pressure and I have a red face BUT when I take things like vitamin C, D, Zinc, Dandelion, Burdock Root, Reishi (yes I taught myself natural medicine because I had to), the symptoms reverse BUT I get this 'tight' feeling in my stomach which is why I describe the whole hypersensitivity thing because I can feel almost everything. I get the tightness, the gas gets trapped, and my body temp decreases.
Now I'll give a brief on the important tests I've done due to suspicions I and few doctors had about specific diseases: HATS(tryptase and genes), MASTOCYTOSIS(c-kit), POLYCYTHEMIA VERA (jak 2), LEUKEMIA (bcr-abl), MYELOPROLIFERATIVE NEOPLASMS(calr), PORPHYRIA, ANEMIA (MANY TYPES), C3, C4, CRP, INR, ANTI DNA, LEUKOCYTES, PROTEIN (urine), IMMUNOGLOBULINS, THYROID ANTIBODIES AND FUNCTION, DOUBLE STRAND ANTIBODIES, RHUMATOID FACTOR (10 >14), VITAMIN D,MRI'S, CT'S(brain amd stomach), ECHO'S, ULTRASOUNDS (of everything), ALLERGY SKIN TESTING, SERATONIN(urine) and maybe more that I didn't see.
The results that were 'positive' and stood out + dates discovered:
•Thyroglobulin antibodies >184 (2023) •Thyroperoxidase antibodies >135 (2023) •C3 >89 (2021) •Bilirubin >30 (2021) •Albumin >53 (2021) •Urate >192 (2021) •Between 2021-2022, at my worst, I had consistently low wbc and neutrophils, whether from malnutrition or something else. I'm unsure •Sinus arythmia (2021) •Slight pericardial effusion (2022) •Head CT w/o contrast >scattered bilateral white matter lesions on brain? (2021) •Renal / Abdominal ultrasound >Mild hydronephrosis (2021) •Cardiac / Abdominal ultrasound >Trace right pluerual effusion, pericardial effusion, hydronephrosis (2021) •Spinal x-rays and mri's >consistent disc degeneration (2019-2023) and idiopathic thoracic scoliosis. •Endoscopy and colonoscopy >Clear (2022-2023) •Abdominal CT with contrast >jujenum distention and embelical hernia (2023) •Swollen lymph nodes in my neck simultaneously to rash (2023) •Idiopathic scoliosis (2014) •Undigested food in stool (2020-2023) •Heat rash from the sun (2020-2023) •Dermatographism (Childhood - now)
Very few food allergies or allergies all together. Dad had Graves disease Mom's mom has hashimotos Mom gets bumps from the sun Nephews get frequent fevers and hives (unexplained currently) Other nephews have red cheeks and nosebleeds frequently Niece has red cheeks frequently and is insensitive to extreme cold or heat My oldest sister has non celiac gluten intolerance Younger sister has bipolar and systemic Cystitis No other info
Test I've NOT had: TNF-A plasma levels Il-1 through il-6 Skin biopsy Bone marrow biopsy
I've ran my own dna test from 23 and me through several third party companies and didn't find anything serious or relating other than what I've already been diagnosed with (ectodermal dysplasia) which Noone else in my immediate family seems to have - I've been over my family history as much as possible and nothing alike OTHER THAN my mom, sister, niece and nephews have somewhat similar symptoms EXCEPT FOR the odd stomach sensations like the tightness or the joint problems.
For context, the ONLY drug use history: Smoked Marijuana when I was 13 a few times Drank hard liquor a few times between the ages 13-16 (bad, I know) and regularly drank red wine for a while when I was 17 prior to the reactions. I also want to mention that I had some very, very hard environmental circumstances during my childhood years that were out of my control as well, which contributed to the 'anxiety'.
Through all of this, I had many doctors blaming anxiety, even sending me to see psychiatrist when in reality I was a scared kid - this started when I was 18 (mostly) and I have no reason to make anything up AT ALL, this has been a long, uncomfortable, near death for a while, isolating situation. I'm dying to know what's going on and I haven't given up, I've had one person be there with me through the entirety of this and they know good and well it's not like me, all of that just made things worse but I understand.
I used to be into modifying cars (i had 4 already), boxing, weight lifting, bmxing, jogging, etc.
Yet people still thought I simply went mad.
The ONLY relief I've had through this is when I did strict carnivore diet, had the sedation for my colonoscopy AND when I ate a Scotch bonnet pepper - it relived everything for about 30 seconds (oddly) and I kid you not, I'm not sure the mechanism behind these things but they're which makes me think it's neurological? Nothing has remissed me to my old self completely.
I've also taken several different medications, including (mostly under the suspicions of mast cell disease) •Prednisone •Diphenhydramine •Famitodine •Ceterizine •Compounded cromolyn Sodium •Compounded hydroxyzine •Aspirin •Alka seltzer A few more I can't remember None of which provided relief and had rather strange side effects such as clicking in my jaw and tight stomach. +Meditation, Chiropractors, Accupresure etc.
Main symptoms: •Gassy 24/7 no matter what! •On empty stomach (after colonoscopy prep, for example). My stomach was burning but no gas. •Increased body temp on an empty stomach (100+) •Increased body temp (external), lethargy, shortness of breath, diarrhoea(at worst) typically from carbs even healthy ones, caffeine (dark chocolate & green tea), empty colon, external heat and now from almost everything. •'Tight' stomach sensation or squeezing from specific substances / supplements and decreased external body temperature. •Bones or joints popping / cracking too much •Tinnitus •Unequal pupils size (anisacoria)
NOTE: I become lethargic / fatigued and weak when my body temperature increases and my veins get larger.
When I take/ took said supplements (vitamin D, C, Zinc , Reishi, Turkey tail) My finger nails actually used to go purple at the same time my stomach felt tight and my body temp decreased and gave me some energy.
NOTE: My joints have been consistently popping and cracking more frequently than before, too, regardless of my nutrition or supplements.
As you can probably tell, I'm pretty desperate for ideas, I am / was supposed to have my whole genome sequenced and be reffered to a geneticist weather or not that's actually happening but until then, I need to hear from the community what I can do, I don't think I can get to the U.S either if that's even necessary.
I'm not here pity, I'm just messed up from all of this and appreciate any ideas from any individuals.
My ideas (neurological / hypothalamic disorder? thyroid disorder? Increased TNF? Metabolic acidosis?)
Thank you very much for reading this far and taking the time to think over this if you have! I really appreciate it!.
The only 'good' that has come from this from my perspective is that I learned an abundance about body functions, natural health, psychology, and I was capable of making a few books out of it. None of it has been easy and I wish I could feel 'normal' again, I don't care if some doctors disbelieve me anymore, I know it's hard to figure out due to clean looking tests but I couldn't be more serious.

2023.06.03 01:19 Mountain_Basil_3332 Nurse killed my dad in front of us

(Located in California) My father was in the care of Kaiser Permanente Hospital in September of 2019, when he fell sick with pneumonia. My dad was admitted to intensive care unit as he proceeded to not get any better eventually the doctors advised to place my father in hospice, when my father asked if he will continue to have the oxygen the doctor stated he will continue to be with the oxygen tank, that will not be taken from him. The doctor reassured my dad, myself and other in the room. Later that evening a nurse stormed into the hospital room yelling at myself, my sister and my son asking us who was the family members of the patient, we were shocked at her demeanor where none of us could even talk besides look at each other, the nurse proceeded to state if we knew what hospice care was? The nurse proceeded to state that there are no doctors orders for my dad to continue to have oxygen as she yanked the hoses out of the wall. Leaving my father with no flowing oxygen. The nurse asked another nurse that was in the room to turn off the monitor that monitored his heart rate and the other nurse said no she cannot turn it off and that seem to anger the nurse that was requesting it to be turned off shortly after my dad suffocated and died right before us that same day. The nurse was wrong and the doctor specifically stated that day they would not be Taking away my father’s oxygen as he was to be transferred over to the hospice department. Is this Medical Malpractice or a wrongful death suit?
This is a very brief summary of what my father endured in the care of this hospital.

2023.06.03 01:17 Titanium-Legman Recommended Parties and Strategies For Each Lair Boss

Hello y'all, I've been playing a TON of DD2 since its full release, and I've spent a lot of that time fighting the lair bosses to figure out what works well against them, and what doesn't. I wanted to share what my experience has been so that anyone who's been struggling against a particular boss (like the Leviathan, damn its soul if it has one) might be able to glean some extra info to help them. Bosses are broken up by section for ease of reading, and I've also made two videos outlining the same points if you prefer to listen rather than read. They're linked below. Spoilers for boss mechanics and whatnot of course follow. Also apologies if formatting gets messed up, this is a long one.
- Dreaming General + Librarian
- Leviathan + Harvest Child
Tangle boss. Takes up the first three rows of his arena, with the fourth row taken up by a targetable, but indestructible, Taproot.
Cadaver Type. Size three enemy, front three rows.
Taproot. Indestructible, size 1 back row.
205 HP
The only mechanic in this fight revolves around the Taproot, which will slowly try to constrict your party over the course of the battle. Upon entering the fight, it’ll add a “Growth” token to each member of the party. Every round, it’ll add another to two random party members, maxing out at three total tokens per character. Once they reach three, the character will be bound, gaining a “Strangle” token and having their actions restricted to using the encounter specific “Whispering Darkness.” This attack inflicts stress on the rest of the party, and must be used whenever a bound hero takes their turn.
Every time an attack hits the Taproot, one stack of Growth is removed from a random hero. This means, to remove all the growth the root creates each turn, you have to hit it twice a turn. You can use damaging attacks, debuffs like Blinding Gas, combat items, whatever. The issue is that hitting the root twice triggers a new attack, “The Soil Stirs.” This marks two ranks of your formation to be attacked on the following turn, causing massive damage to the heroes it hits. This is the case even if you hit the Root once over multiple turns; the second hit it takes will trigger the attack if it didn’t already have it prepared, regardless. If all heroes wind up bound "Nightmare" is used, hitting the party for big damage and releasing them.
General also uses "Unsettling Whispers" to inflict damage and stress on the target.
Waking Dead and Nightmare ignore Stealth, Dodge, Blind and Taunt.
Plague Doctor, Flagellant, Grave Robber, Occultist and Runaway are all good for DOTs, debuffs, and hitting the Taproot.
Hellion is good for boss damage and hitting the Taproot via Iron Swan. Highwayman also works for this
Vestal is good for healing and Consecrations since this is a longer fight.
Minimizing the "Waking Dead" triggers the boss gets is vital. Start the fight by applying DOTs to the boss, buffing, dealing damage, etc. hit the Taproot ONCE on Round 2. Now the next attack will trigger "Waking Dead." Continue dealing damage and prepping. Round 3, go wild on the Taproot. multi rank DOT attacks, combat items, single target attacks, all that. You'll remove the max amount of growth without triggering multiple Waking Dead multiple times. Repeat until death.
Sprawl boss. When you enter the fight, The Librarian will be hiding in rank 4 behind three stacks of books of varying health values.
Fanatic type. Size 1 enemy, starts in back row.
116 HP
The major mechanic to look out for here is the Librarian’s Page BurneBurning Bright combo. Each turn, he will burn one of the stacks of books he’s hiding behind using Page Burner, taking off a chunk of its HP. When he destroys one this way, his next attack will be Burning Bright, a party wide AOE attack that deals big damage, potentially inflicting Burn on everyone hit, AND giving the boss a dodge token. If all books are destroyed boss will Ignite, gaining HP and Speed and proceeding to use Burning Bright THREE TIME A TURN, which will kill the party in short order.
“Mandatory Reading,” a single target health damage attack that burns and causes stress as well.
“Categorize” that shuffles the party.
“Burnout” which will push the boss back behind his books if you pull him forward, dealing damage and burning the front row and giving him two dodge tokens
“Smokestack” which gives a single target 2 blind tokens, a vulnerable token, and grants the boss a dodge token.
Plague Doctor for DOTs and burn removal, Grave Robber and Flagg for more Blight, Highwayman for damage and Dodge removal, all of whom have rank flexible damage.
Jester and Man-at-Arms for repositioning after Categorize.
Healing is low priority since the fight is on a timer, bring blind removal with skills and milk soaked linens to keep damage up.
Boss of the Foetor. A disgusting cornucopia child who makes my skin crawl. Enters the fight with two Fetid meat piles
Plague Eater type. Size two enemy, back two rows.
120 HP
Fetid Meat, front two rows.
The signature mechanic of this fight is the “Hunger” token, a debuff that can be applied to your heroes when they’re attacked by the meat piles that accompany the Child. If they do not resist, an afflicted hero will receive a hunger token, and on their next turn they will be forced to move a rank forward before they can act. If a hero is under the influence of one of these tokens when they move to the front line, they will be forced to use the “Feed the Hunger” skill. Not only does this use the heroes' turn, it also causes them to lose a chunk of max HP for the rest of the combat! Probably because they contract like 5 different diseases and 8 different parasites from eating this.
The Child will move forward through the fight using two attacks.
"Sapid Drippings" to blight your backline.
"Tantalizing Tidbit" to inflict stress.
Uses "Maws of Life" when in the front, inflicting huge damage to your front two heroes, applying bleed to them, and then moving it to the back row to start all over again.
Movement effects are key here. Jester, Grave Robber, Man-at-Arms and Hellion all work for this. Can move hungry characters back, and some characters like MaA and Hellion can immobilize themselves to prevent others from moving forward and using "Feed the Hunger." Relevant skills are "Hold the Line" and "Toe to Toe" respectively. Hunger token is also a debuff, so high debuff resist characters like Poet Leper can be good here.
So long as you can handle all the in-battle movement, there’s no real specific heroes or attacks you need to worry about using for damage. Pretty much anything goes, although packing some bleed attacks can be nice as the Child’s bleed resist is quite low. Jester is the best for all of this, but Highwayman's dodges and ripostes, as well as Leper's Chops are good for damage phases as well.
For healing, there's plenty of bleed and blight as as always Plague Doctor is quite solid. Vestal's dot removal isn't AS good IMO, but there's something to be said for consecrations effecting the front rank over multiple turns, potentially buffing squishies who get pulled to the front by hunger.
As far as the Child is concerned, any attacks that can anchor it or the meat piles will prevent it from nibbling on your gibblets; after all, if it can’t get in bitin’ range, what’s it supposed to do? I’m a particular fan of the bear trap item to immobilize a member of the enemy party, but any such effect can get the job done. Just don't kill the meat, as if the Child is in the frontline it will ALWAYS use "Maws of Life" afaik.
Really, the Child is a more intimidating fight than it is challenging. Once you have a grasp of the mechanics it’s quite manageable, so long as you come prepared to deal with party shuffles. That’s probably why I always hated it in the Early Access period; I was far less accepting of such strategies in the past, and didn’t often account for them in my builds.
Shroud boss. Here it is, the biggest boi himself, the Leviathan. This is the one I've struggled with by far the most. Takes up the front two rows at first, until it summons its hand, which takes the front two rows and moves the boss to the back two rows.
Fisherfolk type. Size two enemy. Shifts between front and back two rows.
155 HP
Hand. First two rows.
24 HP
The main mechanic of this battle revolves around the Leviathans hand. While not present at the start of the battle, it will quickly be summoned by the boss when it uses its “Deep Rising” attack. While the hand can be killed, it will return the next time the boss uses "Deep Rising."
“Eyes of the Storm” Boss will damage and mark two heroes, causing the hand to attempt to grab one of them on its next action with its "Undertow" attacks, holding them under the water. This causes damage to HP and Stress until it is destroyed.
"Batter" causes the hand to pummel a marked hero, dealing moderate damage and potentially shuffling them while inflicting stress.
"Breath of the Sea." Used at the start of any round when the hand isn’t on the field, this attack blinds, inflicts vulnerable tokens, and stresses the whole party. Debuffs as always can be resisted.
"Tidal Surge" damages the entire party, inflicts stress, can apply barnacles that inflict bleed when moving ranks, and has a chance to inflict the "Algan Bloom" disease as a little parting gift. Because WHY NOT RIGHT?
"Deep Rising" will be used to re-summon the hand shortly after it has been destroyed.
There’s a lot going on here, to be sure, more than any other Lair boss in the game.
Ripping this section wholesale from my script because it's important
"Mitigating the Grab"
The absolute key factor at play here, is maximizing your move resist, and being able to burst down the Hand. The “Undertow” attack which it will use to abduct a hero can be avoided with move resist; once you hit 100%, it literally can’t grab you even though it will try. To make use of this, the Sergeant Path Man at Arms and the Poet Path Leper are excellent candidates. As front line tanks, they can take the punishment that they’re likely to receive from the Leviathan’s various attacks, and they largely mitigate the scariest part of the battle.
Each of these lads has their own advantages and disadvantages; the Man at Arms can use defender to cover the second hero to get marked, making it impossible for the Hand to grab anyone. However, his damage is low, and he requires outside support for healing and stress reduction. On the flip side, the Leper has good damage, and phenomenal self healing and stress reduction, freeing up the rest of the party to deal boss damage. However, he can’t cover the other marked hero as Undertow ignores taunt, so you’ll likely need to spend some time beating the Hand down and rescuing your allies. Poet also doesn’t give an automatic +100% move resist, so you’ll need to rely on outside buffs and the bonus from Withstand to get you there. With these factors in mind, I feel the Sergeant MaA slightly edges out Poet Leper here since he completely negates the grab mechanic, but the choice is yours. Keep in mind as well, that even if you DO prevent the grab, it can still be worth it to kill the Hand periodically to keep it from hammering on marked heroes.
"Damage and Healing"
As for the rest of the party, your options are pretty open so long as you’re keeping the Hand under control. The Leviathan is susceptible to DOTs, as are most bosses, although its bleed resist is higher than the others. You will be suffering a lot of damage in this fight, so a strong healer is a must; I like the Vestal here, as she can buff the frontline tank with her consecrations, slap the hand or the boss with Judgement, and throw out big heals when needed. There also aren’t any major DOTs to worry about clearing off your party so the PD isn’t as useful for healing, tho her Blight is good for the boss. Runaway can also be a nice pick thanks to rank flexible burns and Cauterize healing when you’re made to bleed by barnacles. Jester is a good pickup thanks to his stress heals, ability to move shuffled heroes back into position if they get Battered, and Slice Off can actually inflict good bleed with Jester’s resist piercing and Vulnerability application when upgraded. Finally, the Occultist deserves a mention with his potential for big heals, and his hexes also weakening and applying Vulnerable to the boss.
I still haven't beaten this boss without my party in shambles, but something I’m going to try on my next attempt is this; Sergeant Man at Arms, Poet Leper, Virtuoso Jester and Seraph Vestal. With this, you’ll have two maxed out move resist heroes to nullify the Hand, bleed DOTs and Vulnerability to chip the boss down, plenty of healing across the whole party, buffs, stress reduction, the works. Will it work? Who knows, but it’s worth a shot.
Which Lair to Clear?
This is a tough question. While yes, I would say that The Dreaming General is by far the easiest of these bosses to take down in general, the Leviathan is by far the hardest, and the Librarian and Harvest Child lie somewhere in the middle, the real issue lies with the boss of the confession that you’re on, and what team comp you’re planning on running to get to it. A team could be great at dealing with The Leviathan but be terrible at fighting the Seething Sigh, for example. So this is a decision you’ll have to make for yourself. I'm still working on Confession 3, so my Leviathan or Harvest Child teams may be the way to go for movement, but more testing is warranted.
Thanks for reading/watching y'all. I hope my thoughts and observations are helpful to someone out there. I'm totally open to feedback as well, if there's something I'm missing about a fight or a hero that's good/bad for something that I got wrong let me know. I'm still learning myself.
Be good to each other!

2023.06.03 01:00 ForgetfulSleeper Snapped my 3rd rusty bolt, stuck in the thread. Where do you guys find the right sizings/grade to replace these?

Replaced my fuel filler neck, and the bolt near the spare tire snapped immediately. Replaced my fuel filter, and one of the tank shield bolts snapped on me. And yesterday I started to change my spark plugs. and one of the air intake case bolts snapped lol.
I seem to have really bad luck with these bolts, not even using a breaker bar or anything. Just a small socket wrench. Just going to assume that all the bolts are ready to snap and need to be replaced whenever I do any job on her.
Where do you guys find the right bolts for the various things? I've been looking on McGeorge and google, rock auto, but kind of struggling finding the right size, length, etc.

2023.06.03 00:54 drkgumby Need plumbing advice.

I have a 75 gallon tank that I am planning to setup with a wet/dry filter under the tank. The filter is sized for a 125 gallon tank. I am going to keep cichlids. Either shell dwellers or jewels (not both!). I like to over filter just to simplify things. If what I am considering is too big (but not crazy too big) that's ok. If it's too small, please suggest appropriate sizing. I am considering a ESHOPPS Eclipse Slim Large overflow, that should provide more than enough flow and options on how to silence/manage the overflow. I am thinking bean animal is the way to go. I can DIY with PVC fittings. I need suggestions on a return pump. I think 800 GPH or a bit more is about right, do you agree? Would this pump work ok? Hygger 24V DC Water Pump Submersible Saltwater Aquarium Sump Pump with LCD Display Controller 1060 GPH https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07YV3YG8V/?coliid=IMWJ0G7VNM3PC&colid=27LIRY92SC5MU&ref_=list_c_wl_lv_ov_lig_dp_it&th=1 If not this one, is there something else suitable and available on Amazon for a similar price? I will drill for a bulkhead for the return. What size do I need?

2023.06.03 00:44 saidachompytoaster Questions about cycling/stocking my new 75g tank.

Questions about cycling/stocking my new 75g tank.
So I currently have two tanks, a cycled 15 gallon that has been established for around just over a year and a new 75 gallon tank that is currently a week into the cycling process.
The 15 gallon tank has both a HOB and a medium-sized sponge filter, and currently has a betta fish, 6 neon tetras, ~20 peppered corydoras ranging from juveniles to adult (started off with 6), a 2 inch juvenile orange sail pleco, and a mystery snail.
The 75 gallon tank is currently has no inhabitants and is using a Seachem Tidal 75 HOB filter. I dosed Dr. Tim’s ammonia a week ago and am still consistently seeing 2/0/0 ppm readings for ammonia/nitrite/nitrate. My eventual goal is to give my big school of Corys+my pleco their much needed upgrade into the 75g, and get some other angelfish/schooling community fish as well.
I’m mainly wondering if i would be safe for my corys if I were to move the cycled sponge filter into the 75, let it run for a couple of days until the ammonia goes down to 0, and then move the Cory’s into the 75g, and then go in eventually adding more fish from there every ~2 weeks.
Also, if anyone has stocking suggestions for my 75g to go with the corys and orange sail pleco, let me know!

2023.06.03 00:41 No_Objective_8944 Am I the pregnant AH? Over-protective husband or irritable pregnant wife?

FTM - 30 weeks + 1 day I was previously the breadwinner and took a lot of pride in my work. When I became pregnant my husband and I decided that I would stay home as my job took me to large commercial construction sites which made us both nervous about exposure while I am pregnant. Also, I want to be a stay-at-home mom so it is all fine and my husband is working full-time while also trying to build a side business which he has been working on since early 2020. My staying at home means that I can help take care of him, the house, and do some tasks to benefit the business like some marketing, social media work, as well as invoice tracking, and email organization. It has been a big adjustment and we are in a very tight financial place because the side business is taking longer to build than we were hoping, but of course, we have had some unforeseen house maintenance projects come up in the last few months that we were not expecting...shame on us for hoping we would have been lucky to not have to deal with that at this point in time.
All that being said, my husband is under a great amount of stress trying to work two jobs practically and make ends meet in anticipation of the baby. We have been married for 3.5 years and together for 15+ years so we have a very solid foundation. I am writing today because I am not sure how to handle this new dynamic in our relationship. About 2 years ago, my husband admitted to me that he has been battling OCD and it has become so difficult for him to deal with that he started seeking professional help. His OCD is more focused on contamination when it comes to things like blood, toxic chemicals, and disease. It really ramped up in anticipation of our pregnancy, thus the professional help. Unfortunately, this professional help did not provide my husband with the support he says he needs. In his words, he felt like they simply wanted him to just not think about his urges. He says, I cannot ignore them and they are too strong. He feels that he needs more. What that more is...I don't know. He says he doesn't need to pay someone to tell him to not think about it. He is very against taking drugs as he also has an autoimmune disorder which has him tied up in other serious medications which makes him cautious to add anything else at this time. In the last year plus he has been dealing with his OCD without professional support. He managed to hide most of his struggles from me when I was working full-time. Now that I am home, I see it with much more frequency.
Now that I am pregnant, his anxiety is kicked into overdrive. I don't know where the paternal instinct to protect me starts and where the OCD ends. For example, he doesn't like me wearing makeup, or picking up/opening Amazon packages because of potential harm to the baby. He doesn't like me to fill up the gas tank, eating fast food, anything with food dye, and only filtered water to drink or organic juices. I don't inherently disagree with a lot of these things but not to the same degree. I think limiting these things is good but I am not as worried about the occasional indulgence.
With the random house maintenance we have had to work with it spikes his anxiety. We had to have someone over to work in our attic and the fiberglass bits that came down as the repair guy went in and out of the attic stressed my husband so much that he cleaned for nearly 3 hours after everything was complete and then complained that he barely got any work done due to the distraction. The repair took less than an hour to conduct and the repair guy was contained to about a 8 foot x 4 foot space in the house.

To top it off, we had a diagnosis of a chromosomal abnormality at 20 weeks which was a total curveball. This was VERY difficult for both of us to process but we are in a good place now and have accepted our circumstances. We are still very excited to meet our baby regardless of the diagnosis. We love him so deeply already. BUT this diagnosis only fed into his anxiety around the pregnancy and his actions around how he could have contributed to this via exposure to chemicals, autoimmune medications, etc. I should mention that we spent almost a year weening off of some of his autoimmune medications prior to getting pregnant so there should have been no risk of that contributing to any problems with my pregnancy. Also, I am not in the geriatric pregnancy category and according to all of our doctors, this abnormality is completely random and could not have been prevented or foreseen. Nonetheless, he still worries. Almost to the point where he might not want to have a 2nd baby which was always our plan and would be devastating to me. I don't think he would go that far as he goes back and forth but he says he is almost miserable with worry now that I am pregnant.
He is extremely stressed because of his workload as well. We talk about the added stress of protecting me and the baby as well as maintaining the house has him MAXED OUT. While I feel homebound and sometimes understimulated. My husband doesn't have a lot of friends especially since he works from home and we semi-recently moved to a small town so we could better afford me staying at home. I feel bad leaving to hang out with my friends (I have managed to make a few) as I think about him staying at the house alone and stewing in the stress. BUT I find that I am struggling to maintain patience during his anxiety outbursts. They cause me anxiety and I become frustrated which in turn frustrates him and makes him feel like I am not caring or soft enough. This all makes him feel more alone and of course, stressed.
My anxiety not only stems from my fear of his mental decline but also how this will play out when our son is born. He claims his anxiety is highest during pregnancy and will likely carry through to the first couple months of our son's life while he is ultra fragile but I can't help but wonder if that is hopeful thinking and I am worried it will continue. I don't want our son to carry the stress that my husband carries or at least I want to protect him from it.
I am stuck as I find some of the precautions sweet but sometimes they get on my nerves and I just wish I could go back to work and makes some money so he could stop complaining about the world of pressure on his shoulders. Now that I am SO pregnant that is not an option any time soon. And ultimately I want to be home with my son.
Am I the pregnant AH for getting frustrated at my husband for his imperfections? Or is he being unreasonable? I love him dearly and we have a wonderful bond. I am in no way interested in divorce. I just can't tell if the pregnancy hormones or my own ego is clouding my ability to support him in his time of need. Sometimes I wish he could better support my emotional needs by carrying these burdens without wearing them on his sleeves as it scares me. I don't want to be cruel and I am not perfect either but I am lost as to what the right path is. I feel like if I just listen to his fears and worries without trying to add my own logic or reason, I might be aiding in his continued battle with OCD. He thinks that I can be careless which I try not to be but I am not perfect by any means.

Maybe the pregnant AH

2023.06.03 00:41 FreedomTrading Charging handles are one of those AR15 components you don’t really think about until a GI charging handle 💩 the 🛏 on you.

Charging handles are one of those AR15 components you don’t really think about until a GI charging handle 💩 the 🛏 on you.
Let’s take a look a few charging handles that make life with the AR15 easier. The three we’re looking at are the ACF from Forward Controls Design, the BCM Gunfighter (specifically the Mod3x3) and the Radian Raptor.
First off, all three are ambidextrous designs so they all feature latches that can be used from either side. The size of the latches can vary. While I don’t have a set of calipers laying around, the BCM Mod3x3 has the largest latches by a hair (BCM does make a Mod4x4 which uses smaller latches). The narrowest is the ACF which was designed to minimize potential snag hazard. For this same reason, the ACF is also designed with a more rear-swept contour as opposed to aggressive forward sweep of the BCM and Radian designs. What the ACF lacks in width, it makes up in the thickness of the t-handle area to offer more real estate to grab during manipulations With more people running suppressors on their rifles these days, charging handles are now being designed to protect shooters from the excess gas coming back through the rifle. Both the ACF and BCM feature raised fences that help deal with it with the ACF’s gas fence being the tallest of the two. While Radian does make a version of the Raptor that is designed for suppressed use, it addresses the gas issue from inside the receiver - we just didn’t have one laying around to use with this comparison. For those of you planning out a build or just upgrading your existing rifle, we hope this helps you narrow down your selection.
