2023.05.28 05:45 MielDeAbeja1234 Life feels not worth it

I wish medical euthanasia was legal, accessible, etc. it feels so unfair that I have to live life and feel like every little thing is so extremely hard. I bet I do have potential, but why does it matter if none of my thoughts can come into fruition? If I constantly just feel like the world is so painful, so hard, and that I have to do more things than I hate than things that I like to survive. I am unemployed, can’t find a job, dropped out of college, and I don’t speak to my parents anymore. I don’t have anyone but my ex girlfriend who I live with and she’s my best friend. I am attractive-ish, yet I feel so unlikeable unless that person is interested in dating me. I can’t hold a conversation most of the time. I constantly feel like people judge everything that comes out of my mind. I’ve been working to buy everything I use since I was 17 and I am 22 now. I am exhausted. I feel like I can’t work and yet I keep forcing myself to go back and then eventually quit, and can’t find a job again because of the market. I had m last job for 8 months. I was made supervisor with no pay raise and most people disliked me (unrelated to that), we were severely understaffed and a whole store would be closed by two people. If not, our hours would have so many ups and downs. Constantly between 0 hours and 30 a week. I don’t want to go back to customer service and get yelled at, take on the job of a manager, etc etc just to be given 5 hours the next week no matter what bills I have to pay. I am so broke and my debt is building up but going out and spending literally like 10 bucks in parking is the only thing I can do for cheap to make me happy for at least one day. I don’t even drink. I feel like life is not for me, no matter how hard I try or how low my standards are. My level of trauma is just unbearable: from sexual to physical to verbal, I can’t even have sex and even if I try, I very often don’t trust people’s intentions. I feel so damaged and honestly wish I had the courage to pull the trigger. I’ve been in therapy since I was 13, I’ve had 9 therapists and maybe 4 psychiatrists. Ive been verbally abused by my therapists, and also had some tell my parents I was going through a phase and to just ignore it because it’ll go away eventually (I was 13). I’ve been diagnosed with so many things, taken so many meds. I’ve tried acupuncture, therapy massages, crystal stuff, homeopathy, shadow work therapy, even joined a culty fucking thing my sister was part of for “self improvement”. It feels endless. My feelings feel like each day they get worse. I have good days, I have things that make me happy, but things simply don’t seem to go well for me and I seem to have no drive or easy way to maintain myself while also staying happy. It feels like I get a job and I feel shit because I can’t take it, I can’t take not having a break, but I don’t have one and feel like a failure and a burden to my ex’s parents and to her even. I’ve only been unemployed for a little over a month but the debt stresses me out every day. At this point I either get a job or kill myself. I can’t take being a burden anymore.

2023.05.28 05:44 Lyckanz No response for a couple of days after 3 good dates

I met this girl online and we have been hitting it off well and just went on our third date on Thursday. I think it went well, we have been kissing, holding hands, vibing pretty well and afterwards she texted me saying she had a good time. We said a few more things to each other that night and she hasn’t responded for 2 days now to the last thing that I said. She has responded every day multiple times since we started talking but in this last week that has kinda slowed down to maybe one late at night (like 10-11).
Not really sure what to make of it. On one hand I feel like texting is not the most important thing and what’s more important is how we click on the actual dates. But also this is out of character and I am assuming I am a second or third option for her and she is just gaining interest in someone else.
Probs just gonna double text her tomorrow, I feel like asking her what’s up with the lack of response is a bit too confrontational and might make her uncomfortable. But it does kinda annoy me and I feel that I’m an after thought at this point…maybe I’m overreacting, thoughts?

2023.05.28 05:41 Jordansalterego Dog sleeping in crate for first time

I got a 10 week golden on Thursday. To say it’s been eventful is an understatement. He’s definitely still adjusting to a new environment and is experiencing a ton of separation anxiety. I understand he’s a pup and this is part of the process.
I tried to go the pen route, but he whines and then screams bloody murder when inside the pen. He will fall asleep in the pen if I’m in there with him, but when he wakes up without me in there he goes nuts.
I bought a crate today, and got him to go in it on his own (surprisingly). He just fell asleep inside the crate with the door open. I am unsure if the right move here is to keep the crate open? I closed it while he’s sleeping. Any advice to help would be great. Thanks!

2023.05.28 05:39 nzflyingguy 2018 Tucson 1.6 GDI Turbo Elite oil sludge led to pump failure

I bought a new 2018 Tucson 1.6L GDI Turbo Elite in August 2018. Regularly serviced every year. It did miss few 10,000km services. 1st done at 9,542km 2nd done at 36,425km 3rd done at 53,606km 4th done at 71,066km 5th was going to be done just before it died ;(
About 2 weeks ago while driving, the car started losing power. All of a sudden the oil pressure light came on, pulled over to the side of the road and had it towed to the service center.
Their diagnoses is that oil turned into sludge, pump failed and caused engine to die.
There was no indication of low oil or oil pressure.
It's out of warranty (typical warranty is 3yrs or 100,000kms whichever comes first). I'm 4.8 years and 84,000kms. Hyundai NZ and the service center are saying this is because I missed services...
Has anyone experienced engine failures like this? What are my options?

2023.05.28 05:39 InfernoAA God Made the World in Six Days, I’ll Perfect New Japan's on the Seventh Part One: When It Rains

(Reposted with formatting with Kirk's blessing)

After a rocky start to the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship’s legacy, this past year gave it a much-needed push back into the limelight as one of the most sought-after belts in wrestling, but there’s still work to be done. Kazuchika Okada was about to do that until his fantastic run was cut horribly short by SANADA, but that’ll no longer be an issue as we take matters back to the aftermath of Wrestle Kingdom 17, to the start of the Rainmaker’s 2nd reign. This isn’t just about recapturing the glimmer of the V4 belt though. In each company, the World Championship acts as the centrepiece to its future, any changes affecting the greater surrounding stories as well. Thus, this booking aims to orient NJPW as a whole, smoothing over complaints like the redundancy of BULLET CLUB and the staleness of CHAOS whilst building a promising future for New Japan for when its current pillars ultimately need to hang up their boots.

New Year Dash!! (January 5, 2023)

Also on the show:
CHAOS (Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii, YOSHI-HASHI) vs Sabre-Gun (Zack Sabre Jr., Shane Haste, Mikey Nicholls)
BULLET CLUB (Jay White, KENTA, El Phantasmo, EVIL, Yujiro Takahashi) vs Guerrillas of Destiny, Hiroshi Tanahashi & Master Wato

Kazuchika Okada & Kenny Omega vs United Empire (Aaron Henare & Jeff Cobb)

As always, New Year Dash!! has been an explosive night thus far, seeing the debuts of Just4Guys and Sabre-Gun from the ashes of Suzuki-Gun, as well as House of Torture finally leaving BULLET CLUB after their loss earlier in the night, turning their backs on Jay White. But it’s the main event which shakes the company to the core, as legendary rivals IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada and IWGP United States Champion Kenny Omega shockingly team up to take on Will Ospreay’s United Empire henchmen, both having their issues with the Commonwealth Kingpin and his posse. A fun showcase sees the super-team nail their RainmakeV-Trigger combo on Aaron Henare to seal the deal, with Cobb eyeing Kenny menacingly post-match and Okada going right back to big-leaguing Omega, refusing to acknowledge him.

Once the Cleaner departs, Kazuchika cuts a post-match promo claiming last night was merely the first of many nights of a company-wide purge. He’s tired of these outsiders trying to share his earned spotlight, so one by one, he’s going to send them back home. “Kaito Kiyomiya, young lion, I’ll see you in Yokohama.” Okada drops the mic and heads back, where IWGP Tag Team Champions Bishamon are wrapping up an interview. They’re disgruntled from their loss to Sabre-Gun earlier in the night, Goto seeming even more upset that Okada chose to team with Omega over anyone of them, questioning the use of CHAOS, but Kazuchika pays it no note, shooing him off so he can have his interview time.

Kazuchika Okada & Kenny Omega def. United Empire (Aaron Henare & Jeff Cobb) (13:36)

Heading into Yokohama, a 5-match series is announced between Los Ingobernables de Japon and KONGOH’s members! With Shingo Takagi staking his claims to Okada’s title the night prior, Katsuhiko Nakajima raises the question of how deserving the Dragon truly is considering he’s lost twice to the NOAH star. Taking the potshot as a challenge, Shingo agrees to put his shot on the line, the faction with the most wins facing the Rainmaker next!

Wrestle Kingdom 17 in Yokohama Arena (January 21, 2023)

Also on the show:
BUSHI vs Tadasuke
Hiromu Takahashi vs Hajime Ohara
SANADA vs Manabu Soya
Tetsuya Naito vs KENOH
Shingo Takagi vs Katsuhiko Nakajima

CHAOS (Kazuchika Okada & Tomohiro Ishii) vs Team NOAH (Kaito Kiyomiya & Masa Kitamiya)

Before the LIJ/KONGOH series can commence, Okada calls on his trusty right-hand man Tomohiro Ishii (not Goto) to assist him in driving home the GHC Heavyweight Champion Kaito and his main unit ally, Masa Kitamiya, promising to beat Kiyomiya like in last year’s tag. What starts as an average match rapidly devolves into a brawl when Kaito, sick of Kazuchika overlooking and disrespecting him, boots his face off with unbridled intensity, causing Okada to snap, beating the snot out of him! A German Suplex dumps Kazuchika on the floor as referees pull them apart, and as Okada seethes, it’s clear this is far from over.

CHAOS and Team NOAH fought to a no contest (6:35)

Though Kaito’s stunt gains the Rainmaker’s attention, it also garners his wrath, a livid Okada cursing up a storm in a post-match interview. When asked if a match will happen with Kiyomiya, Kazuchika outright refuses to work with the ‘snivelling, puny prick’, claiming he had his chance and ruined the honour of dancing with the Rainmaker. Goto tries to calm Okada down, reminding him that with Nakajima winning KONGOH the series 3-2, they have a preview match with KONGOH tomorrow. In the heat of rage, Okada tells him to ‘f*** off’, before naming Goto their team’s captain since he wants to play smart with him.

The New Beginning in Nagoya (January 22, 2023)

Captain’s Fall: CHAOS (Kazuchika Okada, Hirooki Goto [C], Tomohiro Ishii, YOSHI-HASHI) vs KONGOH (Katsuhiko Nakajima, KENOH [C], Manabu Soya, Tadasuke)

After a turbulent recent weeks, Okada’s in dire need of something to calm him down, hoping a match in his home prefecture of Aichi will help. He’s all calm until he sees Goto’s dumb face though, becoming irrationally angry again, barking at the Aramusha to do his job. Okada sits out majority of the match until Nakajima mouths off with him on the apron, piefacing the Rainmaker when he refuses to get in! Furious, the Rainmaker shoves a concerned Goto aside and tags in, laying into Nakajima to the point of near-disqualification, before murdering Tadasuke to equalise the sides after KENOH eliminated YOSHI-HASHI! He gives Soya the same treatment, tearing KONGOH a new one until Nakajima almost slaps him unconscious, Okada staggering back into his corner, where Goto tags in! As Hirooki and Nakajima go at it, Okada regains his bearings right as Nakajima nails the Vertical Spike to pin CHAOS’s captain to automatically win the match!

KONGOH def. CHAOS (17:11)

As a smug Nakajima snatches Okada’s title away from the referee and holds it over his head, sneering and taunting at Kazuchika, the Rainmaker flips him off! Collecting his boys as Katsuhiko unceremoniously tosses Okada’s belt over to him, Okada returns to the back with gritted teeth, promising to ruin Nakajima, though not before chewing out Goto as the rest of CHAOS watch on uncomfortably.

The New Beginning in Osaka (February 11, 2023)

Also on the tour:
Jay White vs EVIL
Bishamon (c) vs TMDK (Mikey Nicholls & Shane Haste) - IWGP Tag Team Championship
Hiromu Takahashi (c) vs YOH - IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship

Kazuchika Okada (c) vs Katsuhiko Nakajima - IWGP World Heavyweight Championship

It’s been a rough tour for CHAOS, from getting whooped by KONGOH to YOH failing to bring back gold, but through their failures, Bishamon is able to redeem itself by beating back Sabre-Gun’s TMDK. Nevertheless, it’s all taking quite the toll on Okada’s mental, who’s been devolving back to his cocky, snappy self. Finally though, he gets a chance at release when he faces arguably his spiritual counterpart from NOAH, the fellow 35-year-old meeting the Rainmaker in a first-time match that’s been a very long-time coming. Nakajima oozes confidence as he strides out to his grand piano theme, while Okada stomps out with a scowl as Katsuhiko crumples raining Okada Dollars in his hand.

As the bell chimes, Okada offers a traditional lock-up but Nakajima stiffly kicks his thigh instead and smirks. Okada though glares a hole through Katsuhiko, launching at him like a mack truck with harsh elbows in response! Whipping him at the corner, Okada charges, but Nakajima slides out the way and rocks him with a Superkick, dusting off his hands and covering for two! He beats a Lariat attempt, nailing a Big Boot and a Leg Sweep, before crashing into the champion with a MISSILE DROPKICK!

Dazed, Okada finds himself in the ropes, Nakajima continuing to rock him with stiff boots, one sending him to the apron! The Genius of the Kick follows, wanting a Roundhouse, but Okada kicks out his other leg and nails an APRON DDT! Back inside, a Senton Atomico and DIVING ELBOW DROP nabs 2! Okada builds momentum with a Neckbreaker, but Nakajima flips out a German and whacks a SOCCER KICK into his chest! He caves Okada’s sides in with more as the champion splutters until Okada flips him off again!

Nakajima charges with a YAKUZA KICK but Okada pulls the ropes down! Nakajima caught, Okada nails a DROPKICK! Katsuhiko collapses out, Kazuchika chasing after, whipping him into the guardrail before cleaning his clock with a Big Boot of his own! FLYING CROSSBODY – SUPERKICK SNIPES OKADA! Nakajima kicks Okada’s arm into the guardrail, before a HESITATION DROPKICK whacks it off the steel post! Seating Okada on the canvas, Nakajima bullies the arm with disgusting shoulder kicks. A Penalty Kick misses, though as does Okada’s Short-Arm Rainmaker, NAKAJIMA WHIPPING THE SHOULDER INTO THE MAT!

BOW-AND-ARROW ON THE ARM! Nakajima tries tearing it off the bone, but when that doesn’t work, he ties Okada in the ropes and goes to town! The referee intervenes to force the break, but as Katsuhiko turns around a DROPKICK awaits! BELLY-TO-BACK SUPLEX! Okada teases a Rainmaker, but Nakajima slaps him away and nails the shoulder – STRAIGHT-JACKET SUPLEX! ONE! TWO! THR-KICK OUT! Keeping wrist-control, Nakajima mockingly kicks the arm and shoves his face, BUT OKADA EXPLODES BACK WITH A LARIAT FROM THE OTHER ARM!

Keeping hold himself, Okada knocks Nakajima down with another Lariat, before a BEAUTIFUL DROPKICK knocks him loopy! HEAVY RAIN! ONE! TWO! THR-NOOOOO! Okada sets up the TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER, but Nakajima thrashes free with head kicks, pulling him over for a VERTICAL SPIKE attempt! Okada slips free and nails an Enzuigiri! GERMAN SUPLEX! The arm keeps him from bridging, instead climbing the turnbuckles, teasing the Crossbody, only to eat a ROLLING FIFTEEN!

Okada staggers, holding the ropes to keep upright, but Nakajima has other intentions, kicking the arm off, before nailing a RING-SHAKING SUPERPLEX! Rolling through, he pulls him into a TWISTER II!!! ONE! TWO! THR-NO DICE!!! Disappointed, he drops Okada into seated position with a BICYCLE KNEE STRIKE, before lining up a PK! OKADA COUNTERS INTO A SURPRISE EMERALD FLOWSION ON THE NOAH STAR! Regaining his bearings for a moment, Okada smells blood in the water, throws out the arms, wanting the RAINMAKER… NAKAJIMA SLAPS THE SOUL OUT OF HIM!!!

Okada collapses deadweight to his knees as Nakajima grins sick thoughts to himself, before mocking the Rainmaker pose! Ripcording Okada around, he nails a JUMPING KICK, before going for the VERTICAL SPIKE… OKADA REVERSES INTO A SHORT-ARM RAINMAKER!!! Nakajima now stunned, Okada lifts him by the waist and nails the RAINMAKERRRRRRRRRR!!! ONE! TWO! THR-NOOOOOOOO!!! But a ticked Okada doesn’t let him go, mauling him with haymakers and kicks like he did Kaito as even Nakajima’s forced to cover up!

Frustrated, he slaps Nakajima in the face, but Katsuhiko with a SHOULDER KICK! DOUBLE UNDERHOOK SUPLEX! Okada rattled, he eats a Sliding Dropkick and an AIR RAID CRASH, before Nakajima nails the NORTHERN LIGHTS BOMB!!! ONE! TWO! THR-OKADA STAYS ALIVE!!! Nakajima back to the well with the VERTICAL SPIKE… DROPKICK FROM OKADA!!! ANOTHER DROPKICK!!! SHORT-ARM RAINMAKER!!! AND A TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER!!! Lifting him up with hatred, Okada ripcords him into the RAINMAKER!!! But he’s not done, going for another as NAKAJIMA FLIPS HIM OFF!!! RAINMAKERRRRRRRRRRRR!!! ONE! TWO! THREE!!!

Kazuchika Okada (c) def. Katsuhiko Nakajima to retain the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship (27:18)

Triumphing over the outsider, Okada steps over him like he’s dirt and collects his title… BUT HE’S SPUN INTO A BLADE RUNNER!!! Jay White stands over his rival’s fallen body, the respect shown at Wrestle Kingdom a mere ruse, the Switchblade wanting his title back!

Done with White’s antics, Okada agrees to a rematch on one stipulation – if White loses, BULLET CLUB must disband. It’s coming up to 10 years of him dealing with their rubbish, and frankly, he’s hurt and old and tired of the rinse and repeat. It’s time he ends it for good.

Battle in the Valley (February 18, 2023)

Also on the show:
Kenny Omega (c) vs Jeff Cobb - IWGP United States Championship
Tama Tonga (c) vs Tomohiro Ishii - NEVER Openweight Championship

Kazuchika Okada (c) vs Jay White VII - IWGP World Heavyweight Championship (If White loses, BULLET CLUB must disband)

With Okada dropping a massive bombshell, a deranged and desperate White can only accept, needing the title back, even if it means risking BC should he fail. Their 7th and potentially final match, Jay’s still 4-2, putting the Rainmaker at a disadvantage, but he couldn’t care less. White makes his entrance flanked by BC, who look downright scared for their future, but KENTA tells them to hold strong. As Jay approaches the ring though, he tells them to let him run this solo against the Black Sun’s advice, White believing this to be his fight despite everything on the line, going it with just Gedo. Okada’s by his lonesome as always, ready to bury the past forever.

Unlike their WK match, this starts surprisingly in Okada’s favour even with the hell he went through just a week ago, the Rainmaker cutting off White’s condescending trash talk with a DROPKICK! Beating on his torso, Okada whips Jay at the ropes for another Dropkick, but Gedo pulls White out, giving him a pep talk to focus as Okada flashes him a ‘Too Sweet’! Not thinking, Jay slides back into a BIG BOOT, Okada continuing control with a Neckbreaker!

Hammering on the neck, Okada cinches in an early RED INK, forcing White to fight as Gedo looks on worriedly. Hissing and spitting, Jay struggles to the ropes, but there’s no breaks for him, a FLAPJACK snapping his neck off the ropes and a Lariat stumbling him to the floor! Regrouping with Gedo again, his friend pleads with him to snap out of whatever this is, only to step back fearfully as a snarling Okada approaches.

Understanding he’s in supreme control, Okada takes his sweet time tossing Jay back in, though his return’s slowed by Gedo, who begs for mercy for Jay as Kazu steps on the apron. Okada rolls his eyes, ONLY TO TURN INTO JAY RUNNING FULL SPEED AT HIM! SHOULDER TACKLE SENDS OKADA FLYING RIB-FIRST INTO THE GUARDRAIL!!! As Okada wails in agony, White cackles. Mission accomplished. Playing possum to lower Kazuchika’s guard, he’s in control now.

Collecting Okada, he rams his spine from apron to post… BEFORE TACKLING HIM THROUGH THE GUARDRAIL ITSELF, BOTH EXPLODING THROUGH!!! As Okada nurses his ribs, Jay plops down on a vacant chair next to a fan and snatches their water, taking a swig and patting himself on the back, before ‘making it rain’ over Okada’s head. He sets up a table at ringside which remains untouched for now as his foe crawls back in, Jay instead nailing a sick DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Chopping and kicking the midsection, a SNAP SAITO gets 2!

A Reverse STO attempt backfires though, Okada lifting Jay into a HANGMAN’S DDT! One Corner Elbow later, and a DROPKICK sends Jay crashing from the top turnbuckle to the ramp! Gedo orients the dazed Jay to a chair, White using it for support, only to yank him off as OKADA SOARS – TOPE CON HILO EATS THE OPENED CHAIR!!! Back in agony, a SLEEPER SUPLEX only doubles it! Sliding Kazu in, a Running Corner European follows into a Blade Buster tease… JAY HITS A BLOODY SUNDAY INSTEAD!!! ONE! TWO! THR-KICK OUT!!!

Okada tries fighting back with a forearm, but a HURRICANE DRIVER FLOORS HIM!!! INTO A LIONTAMER!!! Jay tortures the back holding up the company as now Okada searches for the ropes, but the moment he finds them, another SLEEPER SUPLEX awaits! Okada rolls through though and nails a PERFECT DROPKICK! White rocked, he eats a TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER!!! Okada goes for a RAINMAKER, but sensing Jay trying to counter into the Blade Runner, he pushes off and nails another DROPKICK!

Remembering the table, Okada nails a SPINNING RAINMAKER, before rolling White onto it! Heading up, Gedo begs him to spare Jay, but Kazu refuses… DIVING ELBOW DROP THROUGH THE TABLE, BUT IT TAKES OUT GEDO!!! JAY PULLED GEDO INTO HIS PLACE!!! Chucking evilly to himself, Jay rolls Okada in for a KIWI KRUSHER, but the Rainmaker writhes, readjusting into seated position on White’s shoulders! He hammers on White’s head, but Jay pulls his body down instead… STEPPING OVER THE ARMS, HE NAILS A STYLES CLASH!!! ONE! TWO! THR-NOOOOOOO!!!

Quickly losing patience, he bashes Sharp Sensations against Okada’s chest, before holding the finger gun to his head… V-TRIGGER!!! IS HE GOING FOR IT?! Lifting Kazu onto his shoulders as the crowd gasps… JAY FEIGNS IT, DROPPING OKADA INTO BLADE RUNNER POSITION- OKADA REVERSES INTO A RAINMAKER!!! HE’S NOT FALLING FOR WHITE’S TRICKS ANYMORE!!! ONE! TWO! THR-JAY KICKS OUT!!! Dumping Jay with a German, he nails a couple Short-Arm Rainmakers, followed by a LANDSLIDE! Getting ready to nail another Rainmaker, he grabs the wrist…

JAY NAILS A RAINMAKER OF HIS OWN!!! ONE! TWO! THR-NOOOOOOOOOO!!! White slams the mat, tears in his eyes, not knowing what to do, but right as he’s about to lose hope, he remembers KENTA. Charging up the Busaiku Knee Kick… HE RUNS INTO A DROPKICK!!! Slugging elbows as Jay returns chops, Okada suddenly scoops him up for a LANDSLIDE!!! And he’s back up in position for the RAIN-BLADE RUNNER!!! BUT JAY CAN’T CAPITALISE, TOO SPENT!!!

Instead, White wills himself to go for another, securing wrist-control to nail a couple Short-Arms of his own, before doing the slit-throat taunt… BLADE RUNNER- OKADA DOESN’T BUDGE!!! Jay tugs, growing frantic as he locks eyes with Okada, who shakes his head! SPINNING TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER!!! INTO A RAINMAKER!!! Picking a limp Jay back up, Okada ‘Too Sweets’ him on the forehead, before waving goodbye, NAILING ONE MORE RAINMAKERRRRRRR!!! ONE! TWO! THREE!!! BULLET CLUB is dead. Long Live Okada.

Kazuchika Okada (c) def. Jay White to retain the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship (38:48)

A stunned silence fills San Jose at first, followed by a standing ovation for both warriors. 10 years of one of the greatest factions of all-time, now over. BC rush out to White’s side, some shocked, some furious, but overall emotional for their last night together. KENTA gives Okada a soulless look as the Rainmaker leaves the ring, Kazu nodding to Tanahashi on commentary, knowing what this moment means to him too. But alas, the night is over as Jay walks himself out of New Japan, no betrayals on their last night.

Whilst Okada’s been through two tense defences in a short span, yet another challenge awaits him. Kaito consistently calling him out in the past weeks, using Okada’s moves on tours, Kazu finally caves, confirming he’ll be there at Keiji Muto’s retirement show, but he’ll be there for blood.

Also on the show:

IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada vs GHC Heavyweight Champion Kaito Kiyomiya

The most invigorating Japanese rivalry in recent memory finally receives the pay-off everyone desires as NJPW’s Ace fights NOAH’s up-and-coming Ace. What ensues is awfully one-sided, Okada fully tapping into his role of Big Brother as he demolishes the man he deems lesser than him. Kaito does his best to hold out, getting in Kazu’s face a couple times, but he’s no match for the unbridled arrogance and fury of Okada, who wrecks him with an Antonio Inoki Enzuigiri, a Mitsuharu Misawa Emerald Flowsion, and a stiff-as-hell Rainmaker! 7 years ago, this was Naomichi Marufuji to Okada, but now Kazu is the Alpha Dog in town.

Kazuchika Okada def. Kaito Kiyomiya (16:32)

With Okada drifting into this unrecognisable version of himself, the rift between him and members of CHAOS continues to grow. Goto’s outspoken in his discontentment with CHAOS’s current position, HASHI standing with his partner, believing Kazuchika should be spending more time uniting the faction as their leader rather than running off to humiliate others and dapping up Tanahashi. Ishii and Yano, on the other hand, refuse a rebellion as CHAOS OGs and loyalists, Tom already eating well with his NEVER Openweight Championship. As such, a match between them is set for Anniversary!

As for Okada, with LIJ not getting the chance to fight Okada due to their loss to KONGOH, Hiromu Takahashi challenges him to a Champion vs Champion fight as one of 2 LIJ members who did win against KONGOH.

Also on the show:
Bishamon (c) vs CHAOS (Tomohiro Ishii & Toru Yano) - IWGP Tag Team Championship

IWGP World Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada vs IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Hiromu Takahashi

A long-awaited rematch from 2020’s New Japan Cup Semi Finals for Hiromu, much like Prince Devitt a decade ago he wants to prove he can hold both titles simultaneously. Though Devitt failed, Takahashi tries to avenge stablemates Tetsuya Naito and Shingo Takagi’s failures against the Ace as Tanahashi commentates again, having surprisingly voiced his support for Okada’s recent regime of culling the outsiders. An 18-minute sprint sees Hiromu rely on his explosiveness to leave Okada reeling, a Time Bomb II banging up the neck for a near-fall, but Takahashi still isn’t on Kazu’s level, a Rainmaker silencing him!

Kazuchika Okada def. Hiromu Takahashi (18:03)

Despite Bishamon’s defiant victory against CHAOS, Okada pays it no regard when choosing a partner for New Japan’s return to Aichi, remembering how Goto failed him last time. Called out by recent Young Lion graduates Ren Narita and Shota Umino, who have been making waves in the New Japan Cup, Narita determined to replicate mentor Katsuyori Shibata’s run to avenge him, whilst Shota wishes to impress idol Tanahashi, Kazu fittingly invites the Ace of the Universe to team with him!

New Japan Cup - Night Five (March 11, 2023)

The Dream Team (Kazuchika Okada & Hiroshi Tanahashi) vs Ren Narita & Shota Umino

A true dream team, the company’s Aces battle its future in a thrilling exhibition bout, Shota borrowing from Tanahashi in his performance, whilst Narita remains very much determined to get in Okada’s face. Much like the rest who have tried as of late though, he’s well out his weight class, Okada paying him a mocking headbutt and a Rainmaker to humble the youngster! As Narita wallows in disappointment though, Okada offers a hand to Shota, helping him to his feet and claiming he sees a future in the Tanahashi-derivative star.

The Dream Team def. Ren Narita & Shota Umino (13:32)

As the New Japan Cup rolls on, it reaches a scintillating conclusion with Just5Guys’ Taichi besting Sabre Gun’s Zack Sabre Jr. in the Finals, Taichi having beaten Ospreay in the Semis and Zack triumphing over SANADA! As the group joins the Toshiaki Kawada student for the trophy presentation, complete with a recently-turning SANADA, who betrayed Naito in the Quarter Finals, they invite one last member to their family to Sabre-Gun’s Kosei Fujita’s umbrage – his former friend who he left, Ryohei Oiwa! Whilst J6G and Sabre-Gun’s rivalry bubbles in the background, the important matter at hand is Taichi’s upcoming shot!

Road To Sakura Genesis - Night Three (April 3, 2023)

The Dream Team (Kazuchika Okada & Hiroshi Tanahashi) vs Just6Guys (Taichi & SANADA)

Once again calling on Tanahashi, the (Aether) Aces step to their mutual foes of Taichi & SANADA. Looking down on the pair as AJPW guys, Okada & Tanahashi are especially hostile in their treatment of J6G, but unlike Kaito who ate all of it, Taichi & SANADA are a lot more defiant, the Holy Emperor especially passionate in his reminders that no matter where he came from, he still worked his way through the Dojo like Okada and Tanahashi. Still, even with Taichi catching the champion by surprise with multiple near-falls, forcing him to become more serious, it’s not their night… yet, SANADA eating the fall off a High-Fly Flow!

Bishamon (c) vs Aussie Open - IWGP Tag Team Championship

Kazuchika Okada (c) vs Taichi VI - IWGP World Heavyweight Championship

Though the tag match may not have gone in J6G’s favour, tonight’s a lot different. One year ago, Taichi watched as his partner ZSJ failed to dethrone Okada after winning the NJC, much like four years before that. But now, he’s earned the chance to be the one fighting Kazu and silence his critics, especially the Rainmaker, rather than spectating a third time. Conducting a full operatic entrance, the Holy Emperor is the fan-favourite in the very arena his mentor Kawada retired, looking to make him proud, and for once, even Okada’s grandeur pales in comparison to his foe, though he looks past it, prepared to stomp out another outsider.

What ensues is a match centred around respect, Okada refusing to give it to Taichi, and Taichi doing everything he can for it! From homages to Kawada with the DANGEROUS BACKDROP and a GANSO BOMB tease from Taichi, to Kazu intentionally attempting NOAH-centric moves like the BURNING HAMMER and EMERALD FLOWSION, they trade bombs from start to finish, Taichi even connecting a RIPCORD AXE BOMBER for a near-fall! Yet despite putting on the best underdog performance of his career, the RAINMAKERS put a stop to it!

Kazuchika Okada (c) def. Taichi to retain the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship (28:32)

So close yet so far. As another one bites the dust, CHAOS comes out to join Okada for the show-closing promo – Ishii with his gold, but Bishamon now titleless, as well as Lio Rush failing to win gold too. The Rainmaker gloats, saying he’s never been better… though CHAOS could be a lot better. Admonishing their failures, he tells them he’s disappointed in them. Unlike other factions do, he refused to hold their hands every step of the way, putting his faith in them, yet they’ve thrown that in his face time and time again. Certain members are holding the group back, so he invites them to either leave while they can, or face the consequences.

A few moments pass, but no one budges. Okada scoffs, about to speak until Goto gets in his face! Running down Okada, he says he’s done with the treatment he’s received from the Rainmaker lately, his spot in CHAOS always one of shame after all, constant losses to Okada forcing him to join his foe rather than fail further. But he’s no coward. He’s not going to tuck his tail between his legs and scram like Okada wants. He knows Kazu wants him gone, so if that’s the case… he challenges him to put the leadership of CHAOS on the line against him at his 20th Anniversary Show! If Okada wins, he’ll leave. If Goto wins, he takes over. Astonished by Goto’s defiance yet almost respecting it, Okada agrees to let him fight for his future!

The Dream Team (Kazuchika Okada & Hiroshi Tanahashi) vs Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin) (c) vs Aussie Open (Kyle Fletcher & Mark Davis) - NJPW STRONG Openweight Tag Team Championship

Before Goto’s final stand, Okada makes a trip down to America to challenge for the STRONG Tag Titles, wanting to show Hirooki how it’s done by not only beating the team which dethroned Bishamon, but also the legendary Motor City Machine Guns! Joined by Tanahashi as expected, the icons make up for their lack of tag team experience with sheer talent, giving both teams a tough draw. A Rainmaker to Fletcher sets up Tanahashi for a High-Fly Flow, but as Okada prepares to defend the pinfall, OUT COME BISHAMON! Drawing Okada’s attention, Goto brawls with the Rainmaker whilst HASHI distracts Tana, allowing Davis to take him out, before nailing the Coriolis on Shelley to win the titles!

As Okada realises what’s just happened, Bishamon are long gone by then, Goto waving to a fuming Kazu from the entranceway!

Hirooki Goto 20th Anniversary Event (April 22, 2023)

Kazuchika Okada vs Hirooki Goto XVI

High stakes for the main event, all of CHAOS and Tanahashi are in attendance to witness their stable’s future. Goto’s stoic, not letting the emotions of it all get to him, whilst Okada’s arrogant as ever, overconfident in his abilities despite their series being only 8-7 to him, Goto able to score the grandest of equalisers tonight should he win. What ensues is an all-out war for CHAOS, Goto doing everything to prove himself a worthy member, whilst Okada devotes himself to ruining the Aramusha. And at certain points, Goto has the IWGP World Heavyweight Champion on the ropes, humbling the Rainmaker off a nail-bitingly close near fall on the GTR! But Okada’s simply unstoppable, it taking three Rainmakers to seal the deal, Okada besting Goto!

Kazuchika Okada def. Hirooki Goto (25:10)

Ruining Goto’s big night, Okada’s smug with himself as HASHI, Lio, YOH, and even Yano tend to their fallen comrade, while Ishii watches with a hint of sorrow, though ultimately steering clear of treasonous actions. As per the stipulation, an emotional Goto’s forced to leave CHAOS, though he doesn’t walk the plank alone, YOSHI, Rush, and YOH, following suit! Okada seems taken aback at first, though ultimately nods, needing all traces of weakness gone from his stable. Just Ishii and Tanahashi left standing at ringside, Okada declares that the foundations of the group will be rebuilt, starting with… the three of them!

Handing a CHAOS shirt to Tanahashi, he welcomes Hiroshi to the group, before handing over the mic! Tana explains that upon speaking with Okada, he realised this would be the right way for him to protect the future of the company he fought so long for. Just because he’s carrying a flag now though, doesn’t mean he’s any different from the man they all know and love. He’s doing this for the betterment of the place he loves. He’s doing this for a purer New Japan!

As the three stand tall together… BUSAIKU KNEE KICK TO OKADA! Just as quickly as KENTA slipped into the ring, he slips back out, Taiji Ishimori & SHO by his side! Banding together as a group of misfits following BULLET CLUB’s death, SHO leaving House of Torture too, it’s clear KENTA has one thing on his mind… take from the man who took from him.

Wrestling Satsuma no Kuni (April 29, 2023)

CHAOS (Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Ishii & X) vs KENTA, Taiji Ishimori & SHO

With KENTA and co. targeting Okada, a Six-Man Tag is set, though not with Tanahashi as CHAOS’s third man. Instead, he gives up his spot to their ‘new member’, who reveals himself to be Shota Umino! Okada impressed with his talents a couple months back, he shows off his chops here as a functioning member of the new CHAOS, the three gelling together perfectly. A rather shades of grey encounter between two sides with moral ambiguities, the crowd is evenly split, but alas, it’s KENTA’s crew scoring a bit of an upset after some shenanigans, the Busaiku Knee Kick taking down Ishii! After the match, KENTA gestures Okada’s belt around his waist.

Also on the card:

Kenny Omega (c) vs Shingo Takagi - IWGP United States Championship

Kazuchika Okada (c) vs KENTA II - IWGP World Heavyweight Championship

Not having touched one-on-one since KENTA’s debut G1, there’s a big fight feel for the sacred rematch 4 years long overdue. The Black Sun carrying NOAH’s flag in Okada’s eyes, he’s determined to add KENTA to his list of casualties, whilst vengeance remains glued to the challenger’s mind. Returning to his Overture theme, KENTA’s just as arrogant as the champion, the two producing mirroring self-absorbed entrances, but as the bell rings, it remains to be seen whether their skill is also mirrored.

Starting with a feeling out sequence, the two trade a variety of holds back-and-forth with increasing pace, before Okada teases a sudden RAINMAKER! KENTA has it scouted, catching the arm and immediately getting to work on it, remembering Nakajima’s strategy. Hammering it with elbows and kicks, a HIGH KNEE finds its mark on Okada’s shoulder! Whipping him to the mat, a PENALTY KICK follows to the joint! Okada shakes out his arm in agony as KENTA’s target becomes crystal clear, smartly looking to eliminate the Rainmaker from the equation as early as possible!

KENTA races in for a Corner Big Boot, but Okada ducks out the way, dropping KENTA with a BACKDROP SUPLEX! He shakes out his arm as he drops into cover, shooting the half, only for KENTA to reverse the pinfall mid-count into a GAME OVER attempt! Alarm in his eyes, Okada frantically lunges at the ropes for reprieve, though KENTA holds on until 4 to exact as much damage as possible on the limb!

Okada resting against the ropes as he tries to get some feeling back in his arm, KENTA sprints for a RUNNING YAKUZA KICK, but Okada pulls the ropes down, the Black Sun sent crashing to the outside! He whips KENTA into the guardrails for a Big Boot that sends him over, a JUMPING CROSSBODY following suit! Dragging KENTA out the rubble, he teases a HANGMAN’S DDT off the steel, only for KENTA to drop down and SNAP OKADA’S ARM OVER THE GUARDRAIL! Threading it through the gap, a HESITATION DROPKICK MANGLES HIS ARM IN THE STEEL!

Okada lets out a cry of pain as the section crashes down on him, having no time to recover as he feebly frees himself from it, KENTA yanking him by the arm! He tries to send Okada’s arm into the steel post, but the Big Boot takes him down! Rolling KENTA inside, Okada hails down a MISSILE DROPKICK to send him sprawling across the ring, before a STRAIGHT-JACKET NECKBREAKER subdues him for the Rainmaker to lock in RED INK!

Using the opportunity to rest his own arm, it backfires when KENTA contorts it over his shoulder to free himself, a CROSS ARMBREAKER turning the tables! Kazuchika gets a monkey grip to prevent full extension though, rolling KENTA over to his shoulders for 2, before hoisting him up into an AIR RAID CRASH NECKBREAKER! ONE! TWO! THR-KICK OUT! Okada tries to pick KENTA up with one arm for the TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER, but he fails miserably, KENTA turning the predicament around into an EMERALD FLOWSION!

Scaling the ropes, KENTA teases a DIVING DOUBLE FOOT STOMP to the point of Okada’s elbow… MILLION DOLLAR DROPKICK INTERCEPTS! Okada stands KENTA up with a DDT, before dumping him with a GERMAN SUPLEX, though is unable to get the bridge. Wanting to wrap things up and fast, he uses the ropes to get KENTA in position for a TOMBSTONE PILEDRIVER, before securing wrist-control! He looks for the RAINMAKER, only for KENTA to blast the arm with a YAKUZA KICK!

Okada’s arm dropping by his side, KENTA teases going for a RAINMAKER OF HIS OWN, only for Kazuchika to bring him down with a FLAPJACK instead! A SHORT-ARM RAINMAKER shakes off KENTA’s advances on the arm, before a RAINMAKER FINDS ITS MARK!!! ONE! TWO! THR-NOOOOOOOOOO!!! Not enough strength behind it for Okada to put KENTA down for good, he tries for another… KENTA SLAPS THE TASTE OUT HIS MOUTH! KENTA RUSH FOLLOWS SUIT! AND A BUSAIKU KNEE KICK!!! ONE! TWO! THR-OKADA SURVIVES!!!

Doing the Rainmaker pose, KENTA secures wrist-control himself and puts Okada on his shoulders, teasing a GO 2 SLEEP! OKADA NAILS HEAVY RAIN!!! A LANDSLIDE attempt is stuffed, KENTA again abusing the arm like it’s the Dragongate monkey, BEFORE NAILING A SHORT-ARM RAINMAKER OF HIS OWN!!! Okada forced to eat stiff shot after stiff shot like it’s Shibata all over again, he looks to be on dream street as KENTA fires up a second BUSAIKU KNEE- DROPKICK COUNTERS!!! Accounting for his deteriorating arm, Okada nails a pair of SHORT-ARM RAINMAKERS with his nondominant arm to ease into one more RAINMAKERRRRRRRRRRR!!! ONE! TWO! THREE!!!

Kazuchika Okada (c) def. KENTA to retain the IWGP World Heavyweight Championship (26:35)

It may be the accumulating fatigue talking, but KENTA may have given Okada his biggest scare yet, a lucky last gasp saving the Rainmaker’s reign. Not so bad for an outside, he thinks. As a shattered KENTA collects his bearing, SHO and Taiji by his side, Okada stops him from leaving just yet, instead calling to Tanahashi from commentary, who tosses him a shirt! Mic in his other hand, Okada declares that KENTA impressed him more than he would normally care to admit. It’s almost as though his talents were being wasted in BULLET CLUB… So, why not join CHAOS?

The Black Sun’s understandably stunned, the man he hated just moments ago now offering a truce? But Okada tells him to sit on it, offering a couple more shirts to his pals, stating he could use their talents to fuel his new vision. SHO was always the better Roppongi 3K member after all. And Taiji’s an Ultimo Dragon trainee like him. Just think on it. As KENTA and co. leave to the back in deep thought, it appears big things lie ahead for CHAOS…

2023.05.28 05:38 No_Fennel_5809 Back for advice.

My wife and I have been making progress, repairing our marriage. Until this past week everything has been fine it seemed, until today I asked why she seemed off. She told me that she is pretty much relapsing to last year. How her feelings towards me are confused, that she’s tired of the ups and downs. We haven’t had any, other than what she may be experiencing. Our intimacy has came back, we enjoy each others company more, genuinely seem truly happy. She’s bringing up the concept of divorce.
However; bring her husband, I wonder if she has an internal problem. She sleeps from 10/12PM every until about 2/4 PM the next day. Unless she works, (bartender, 6PM-4AM) then that’s the only time the sleep isn’t as crazy. When she’s up, she’s glued to her phone and I can barely get her attention recently. She doesn’t help around the house at all, occasionally she’ll cook but that’s it. I wrangle the kids, feed them breakfast, lunch, dinner take them out to play, etc. I take care of our dogs, and all the chores. Dishes, laundry, yard and house work and work full time on weekends.
She struggles with depression, ADHD, and had her meds adjusted and added in birth control for hormonal issues. I’m not trying to pin everything on her but could she be projecting her personal issues onto our marriage? I love her with everything I’ve got, worked through a case of infidelity last year with her around this time.
She’s just throwing in the towel it feels like with little to no real discussion. I need help!

2023.05.28 05:38 ssevvennnn AITA for jokingly blocking my boyfriend?

Me (M16) and my boyfriend (M15) were texting and he was jokingly being mean to me so I blocked him but then added him back 10 seconds later, and when he texted me he told me he was upset that I did that and I feel really bad. This was a couple weeks ago, and since then we haven’t talked about it, but i’m still scared that it’s gonna affect his feelings towards me, and thats the last thing I want to happen. The thing is I already (briefly) knew he had trust issues, so if I was thinking more clearly I would of known that was a stupid idea, but since then i’ve vowed to myself I won’t do anything like that to him ever again. Am I an asshole?

2023.05.28 05:37 Delphina34 Parents not supportive of sterilization, 21/22 too young?

I have been planning to get sterilized eventually for several years now. I have an IUD since December 2020 that is good until I'm about 30. The plan was to use that for its whole lifespan and then when it expires try to find a doctor willing to take my tubes out despite being unmarried and no kids. (Or maybe by then I'd be married, who knows).
Due to certain politicization of a basic human right to decide whether or not to continue a pregnancy, I decided to accelerate my sterilization plans. I live in virginia which is a pretty liberal state in that area, and worst case scenario I could hop the border into maryland and stay there for a few days to get an abortion if necessary. The abortion pill lawsuit was definitely a motivator, the thought of a national ban scared me.
I had heard stories on here and other places of people sometimes taking several years or multiple doctors to get approved, even with legitimate medical reasons they should never get pregnant, or being told they need to get married or have a baby first. I picked a doctor from the list intending to go down all the ones nearest to me until I found someone who was willing to take my tubes out. Booked a consultation for about 2 weeks later, and went by myself. I did tell my mom that I was doing this consult because I used her insurance to pay for it and was planning to use it to pay for the surgery too. I went into the consultation cautiously optimistic but half expecting to be denied because I was young and single.
It was actually easier than I was expecting. The doctor seemed nice, and she was pretty young too, maybe late 20s. She went over the alternative birth control methods or that I could ask my partner to have a vasectomy, that the procedure was permanent and irreversible and after it was done I would be unable to get pregnant naturally. When she said "I'd be happy to take out your tubes for you" it felt like a huge weight had been lifted from my shoulders. After the appointment was over walking back to my car it sank in even more that I was one step closer to disabling this ability of my body that I never wanted in the first place and I couldn't help but smile.
My mom took it somewhat well but was not very supportive. Says

My dad had a lot of the same objections. I've been avoiding talking about it with them much because they aren't very supportive but I don't think I'm going to change my mind. The date for surgery is set June 26, a few days before my 22nd birthday. It's been about a month since my consult appointment and I still haven't changed my mind about doing this, I've even talked to my manager at work about getting time off to recover and lifting restrictions for a little while when I get back.
I don't ever want to be pregnant. I don't particularly like babies or little kids. I may not have a lot of my life planned out for certain but not having kids I am 1000% sure about. I want to find a man I can marry and spend the rest of our lives together and actually be able to enjoy it to the fullest because we're not stressed taking care of children. Pregnancy grosses me out and the thought of those things happening to my own body is horrifying, not to mention the pain of birth and the sleep deprivation/stress caring for a baby. If I did decide I wanted to be a parent I'm much more likely to adopt a kid or marry someone who already has kids, which both come with their own unique set of challenges. But I really don't see that happening.
It is hard to date because I automatically reject every guy who wants to have kids someday, which is a lot of them. One of the reasons me and my ex broke up was because he went from "definitely no kids" to "someday years from now when I'm making more money and living on my own I'd want to be a dad." That was not the only reason but it was the nail in the coffin.

Anyway, should I postpone the sterilization surgery for a year or something? Or just go ahead and proceed as planned? How to deal with their reaction/damage control? I could stay with a friend for a few days while recovering if I really needed to but I'd rather do it at home where I'm most comfortable. I would need a ride to and from the doctors office and someone to stay with me while I'm healing, and my mom works from home most days so she's the ideal candidate. I'd rather get this over with while I'm young and living at home so the ~2 weeks pay this surgery costs (after insurance) won't hurt my finances as much as if I was living on my own.

2023.05.28 05:36 Ordinary-Judgment-50 I wish I had checked before the spell

I wish I had checked before the spell
I performed an internet rain spell about a month ago. I am still very new. I cast it knowing a small amount if rain less than 10 mm was due the next week over a couple days. Well it manifested into something closer to 120mm over about 3 days, 3 days after I cast the spell. It's been about a month of research and we need water again. Again I knew we were to get a small amount next week for a day but I only checked that at the beginning of the week. I performed the same rain spell with a few tiny variations. And I'm kicking myself not for checking the forecast before I cast it. 🙃. Oh well bring on the rainy weekend I was picturing.

The .950 JDJ is a large-caliber rifle cartridge developed by J.D. Jones of SSK Industries. It is known for being one of the most powerful rifle cartridges in existence. The "JDJ" stands for J.D. Jones, the developer's initials.
The .950 JDJ cartridge is designed for use in single-shot rifles. It features a bullet diameter of .950 inches (24.13 mm) and a case length of 3.8 inches (96.5 mm). The cartridge fires a variety of bullet weights, ranging from 2,400 grains (155 grams) to 3,600 grains (234 grams).
Due to its massive size and power, the .950 JDJ is primarily used for specialty purposes such as long-range target shooting, big game hunting, and as a novelty or collectors' item. The recoil generated by this cartridge is extremely powerful, and it requires a strong and well-built rifle to handle it safely.
The term "Fat Mac" is often used to refer to a custom-made rifle chambered in .950 JDJ, typically based on a modified Mac-10 submachine gun. These firearms are incredibly rare and are often considered more of a collector's item or a novelty piece rather than practical firearms.
It's worth noting that the .950 JDJ cartridge and the rifles chambered for it are highly specialized and not commonly found. They are typically custom-made and not widely available for purchase-100 coin

2023.05.28 05:33 Many-Flow9535 Does transmog have an expiration time?

Long story short: during MoP I found out a guy, who sells Corrupted Ashbringer transmogs through bug. You need to go with him into dungeon, drop any 2H sword, he tmogs it into CA and sells it to you. I had my fun time with CA, slaying mobs in open world, slaying mobs in timewalks, cosplaying Mograine and so on. But just a week ago I logged in to my account, seen my CA on character selection screen, logged in and BOOM -- it's just a Troll Butcherer one again.
Of course I wrote a report about it into support, and not surprisingly I got rejected in restoring tmog on this weapon, since I had never had an original CA.
I highly doubt, that blizz suddenly fixed 10+ y.o. bug, so I guess 10 years are an expiration time for tmogs?

Anyone else been struggling with self image and weight gain from a very young age?
When I was 4 I didn’t pay much attention too my weight but I guess I was just a bit chubby. The second and third picture were taken one month apart from each other when I was 9. Back then I was starting to feel insecure about my weight because my school told me I was overweight. My mom sent me to a dietitian but I never managed to lose weight. I was an active kid. Loved playing outside, played tennis but I also loved video games. I basically ate the same as my two sisters yet they were skinny and I wasn’t. When I was 11 I suddenly got bullied by new classmates. My friends and old classmates chose to ostracize me instead of defending me. I started eating more because of it and gained more weight. I thought they bullied me because I was fat and ugly. I once had the chance to ask two of my bullies why they bullied me in a neutral setting. They said they didn’t know. But I still blamed my appearance.
The bullying and being abandoned by my friends really damaged me so I had to go therapy and it took a while for my eating habits to back to normal. Luckily when I went to high school I could finally flee from the bullying. When I was 16 I suddenly started gaining a lot of weight again. I don’t know why. I feel like stress and my sleeping disorder were the main reasons. Because of that and my high school exams I ended up with my first burnout. I did finish my exams in April but after that I decided to take a one year break before going to college. It took me around 7 months to recover from my burnout and in the next 8 months I lost 34 kg/ 75 lbs by exercising way too much. I walked 10.000 - 20.000 steps every day and went to the gym 3-4 days a week. No breaks. Even with injuries I just took some painkillers and kept going. I was done with people treating me like crap because of my weight so I was terrified that if I took a break I would gain weight again… I was obsessed with losing weight. I thought it would solve all my problems. Spoiler, it didn’t.
In 2018 I went back to school. I studied game design. It was extremely stressful. I also had an extremely stressful job at a pizzeria and still exercised a lot. On too of that I constantly had fights with my toxic friend group because I gained more confidence and was finally able to stand up for myself when needed. They didn’t like that. After a year I ended up with another burnout. Went to therapy and got diagnosed with autism. It’s been almost four years and I still haven’t recovered. On top of that I now have a different sleeping disorder. It’s a rare one called not 24 hour sleep wake disorder. I gained all the weight I lost back even though my eating habits didn’t change much. I even eat less calories now. I just couldn’t exercise anymore. I could barely move for years. I finally made a bit of progress. I can walk 30 minutes on an okay day and 1 hour and 20 minutes on a good day. But only during the evening. I still get overstimulated really easily. Just sitting outside in my garden in direct sunlight for 10 minutes causes a meltdown. Because of the evening walks I lost 10 kg at first but now I don’t seem to lose anything anymore. It’s so incredibly frustrating…

2023.05.28 05:32 human_raisedbyhumans GRE Today, 168Q 165V!

Took the GRE at-home test today and got a 168 in QR, 165 VR.
Very excited with my score, as my goal was 160+ in both sections.
Studied for about 3 months with a full-time job, so study time was limited to about 5-10 hours/week.
I recommend:
-Magoosh for QR (although I did complete many practice VR sections with Magoosh initially to get an idea of timing, structure etc.)
-Official ETS materials including PowerPrep and the PowerPrep Plus tests for VR
-GregMat videos on YouTube and quizlet for his vocab sections (in hindsight given all his praise on GRE, I may have ONLY used GregMat... but I had already paid for Magoosh LOL)
Overall, my test-at-home experience was very smooth and I recommend it! Honestly, when I was taking the test, I felt that I was doing quite badly... it felt more difficult than all of my previous practice exams, so don't be discouraged during the actual test if you get stumped.
Let me know if anyone has any questions :) In addition, I would love to sell the remaining 2 months of my Magoosh subscription at a discount. Please message me!

2023.05.28 05:31 Ambitious_Minimum_37 [CAN] Can an employer refuse to acknowledge overtime worked by a unionized employee?

I’m in a union, but I work in an office and I’m one of the few people in that office who’s a member of the union. Most members aren’t office based, and senior management is very dismissive when it comes to certain things.
I worked a 12 hour day last week due to an unrealistic deadline my boss gave me at the last minute. There’s a strict policy of “no overtime” especially for unionized employees.
We always get to claim the time back. I wasn’t feeling well on Friday and decided to go home early. My boss messaged me saying to go back into my time sheet and change my hours, because I didn’t work for half the day on Friday.
She knows I worked the extra hours, because she was interacting with me throughout the night when I was forced to work until 10 p.m.
I told her that the time was owed to me, but she’s ignoring me and it still hasn’t been approved. If my sheet isn’t approved by end of day on Monday, I’ll only get half a pay cheque.
I’ve already alerted my delegate, but I feel this is so unnecessary.
If anyone has advice on how to deal with this, that would be amazing, because I don’t know where to go from here.

Our nanny watches our son (10 months old) for 32 hours a week at $20/hr. My husband and I have been considering having another child soon. What is an appropriate rate increase to add a 2nd child? Thank you for any suggestions!

2023.05.28 05:29 Rossl805 So close yet so far.

So after about 10 hours with this game I’m still unsure about it. I’m an avid golfer and have played many golf titles from ea, 2k, and whoever made the golf club version (brain fart). I should note I play on a custom setting which is basically sim difficulty except I can zoom to where I’m aiming.
Interface: it’s not good but it’s not terrible. The only thing I dislike is your golfer customization and the store. They could have let you edit multiple irons at once. And the store could be broken down into club types I.e driver, woods, etc or brands. Also I hope they plan to add more gear and clubs. No balls, vokey wedges, Scotty Cameron, and the clothing is lackluster.
Progression: This is the kicker for me. To earn any money you have to grind. Im more of a career mode guy and so far you don’t earn any coins or in game money to purchase said items in the shop. I have played the daily tournaments when I can but the pay is low and I don’t want to pay entry fees to win something to play the week tournament. All to have to wait a week to get a reward which may get me a shirt or a putter. Maybe I’m not far enough in the career to start earning anything as I’m just finishing my amateur season but so far not impressed. As for the skills progression I have no complaints. I even like that you have to almost have “learn” new shot types.
On course gameplay:
The meat and potatoes. I don’t mind the ball flight physics, spin, and swing technique. I think the course look really good. The crowd and commentators are ok. What kills me is the swing stick dispersion. I have found no rhyme or reason to it. Sometimes your swing feedback is perfect and the ball has a mind of its own. Sometime your feedback is off by a bit and the shot is perfect. I think 2k23 did a better job at this and when your shot stunk you can clearly tell why.
This is just m opinion. Curious to hear anyone else’s thoughts or maybe some hope. If this is gonna be a grind just to get a full bag and and a Sunday outfit I might move on sooner than later.

2023.05.28 05:27 Future_Landscape_988 What happened at first after you started using a hair loss treatment?

I have a question for those of you who have used baldness or hair loss medications and had good results afterwards.
Did you notice less hair falling out within a week of using baldness medications?
Did you notice that your hair had more strength within a week?
For those of you who have used baldness medications and seen results, it would be helpful if you could comment on the specifics of what happened within the first 10 days of using various baldness medications.

2023.05.28 05:26 APETROBJJ When to start? 10 weeks ACL Post Op.

Just curious those of you who have ACL repairs/reconstructions, when did you start KOT?
I am currently 10 weeks post op, relatively pain free and only 3 degrees of flexion off from the uninjured knee. My PT program feels really limited.
I had a BEAR procedure for my ACL. Marker wise I've come back like an absolute monster since week 6. The PT protocol doesn't really ramp up till week 12+. Is there anyone on here that has experience incorporating KOT post ACL procedures?

2023.05.28 05:26 No_Ingenuity_3793 Any advice should I delay or continue..

Hey guys I test in 22 days Currently 76% through Uworld
NBME 20: 52% ( 10 weeks ago) NBME 25 : 58% (4 weeks ago) FREE 120 (old): 77% (today)
I read that the free 120 over predicts and the exam felt super easy while I was doing it so I’m not entirely sure.. do you guys suggest I finish up Uworld and take the exam? Or should I focus more on content review and NBMEs at this point.

2023.05.28 05:25 UsefulFellowship Long Time Away But… what’s the funding model after Beta? Like will “buy an Idris now!!” Always be a thing? There’s supposed to be 1k employees in 5 years

I will preface by saying I LOVE Star Citizen (when it works) clearly not ILW.
However, we hear every streamer say “don’t buy this now, buy it in game after beta!”
But then what will they do to bring in the 100mil+ a year they are currently pacing to satisfy all of these new buildings and organizations across Europe?
I suspect a mandatory subscription like WOW, FFXIV, and any other major MMO. Plus a cash shop for ship skins and starter packages.
If we still have IAE’s and ILW’s and Alien Weeks post beta, then working for UEC is pointless and everyone should just save all their cash for the Legatus package right before beta.
Edit: I hope the responses truthfully and respectfully, aren’t “back 10+ years ago they said XYZ” because sadly, as much as I wish they were true, aren’t really relevant anymore.

2023.05.28 05:25 GGH2023 PLUVICTO

I thought it would be beneficial that I give some insight to those battling ADVANCED PROSTATE CANCER so they may be proactive. My husband turned to PLUVICTO as a last resort and was extremely positive about the possibilities. Below I am sharing his six-month fight with PLUVICTO and experience that I addressed with an email to his doctors after he passed.

It is with a heavy heart that I reach out to all the doctors and health care professionals that treated my husband these past years and notify that he passed away on Saturday, April 15th. Furthermore, I believe it is my obligation to stress the importance of continuous scans, and aggressive follow-ups for patients receiving PLUVICTO. On 10/31/2022 my husband began treatment and immediately his side effect was diarrhea, which is common for many cancer treatments, nevertheless for this type of radiation. However, everyone was hopeful that with time this side effect would stabilize, and days became weeks and weeks became months even while taking prescription meds. After four months of persistent diarrhea, we discovered my husband had C.Diff.

For this reason, patients with detrimental side effects should immediately be tested and if it is related to the GI tract there should be a quicker avenue for immediate referrals and appointments. Keep in mind that doctors refer you to a GI specialist and an appointment may take weeks or even months. In our case, after reaching out to four GI doctors from Baptist which had no availability for months, even when explaining the circumstances, I called Dr. Cristian Andrade who is my GI, and my husband was scheduled as an emergency. In addition, his stool results (C.Diff) took at least two weeks due to an internal issue with the lab.

After three sessions of Pluvicto, due to my husband’s significant weight loss (65 pounds), deterioration and progression of the disease concluded by a scan done at Mount Sinai Hospital on 3/10/22 we agreed to stop treatment. As a result of months of radiation proctitis and C.Diff which caused extensive diarrhea and lack of nutrition because of the discomfort as well as extreme fatigue; it led to Necrotizing Fasciitis that developed in his colon and rectal area. We learned about this bacterium by a CT scan on April 8th when we went to the ER which brought upon an emergent debridement of the area that extended to his bowels. The resulting wound of my husband was so large and deep that the pain from performing wound care every twelve hours sounded inhumane, it was like he was being tortured or burned alive. In fact, he had to be kept in the ICU so they could administer Fentanyl & Versed for wound care and even then, he was still in agonizing pain. Eventually, my husband decided on comfort measures because he would require surgical intervention for placement of a colostomy for the wound to properly heal, which he could not handle.

I consider that each day brings a new teachable moment, and I wanted everyone to learn of my husband’s journey these past six months. I know that the end result would have been the same due to his advanced prostate cancer, but what my husband endured was brutal in 2023. A million thanks to all those that brought him a smile and optimism because you gave him hope. We never thought he would almost make it to four years due to statistics. I consider that my husband was blessed and received the best possible care through the years. He always thought of those worst off and younger battling cancers. Therefore, I created a GOFUNDME in his honor to help others less fortunate. All proceeds will be donated to the National Kidney Foundation, Zero Prostate Cancer Foundation, and the Baptist Health Miami Cancer Institute.
