2023.03.21 08:28 philosophy2668 How To Buff Rascals

Alot of people seem to complain that rascals need a buff but none of them seem to know how to play the card because they ask for the worst buff ever and that's an HP buff to the ras-gals so they can survive log.
Why is this a bad idea?? You might ask.
Because rascals only have success in a few decks Being: mortar bait Prince rascals logbait Bridgespam logbait Some loon decks
In half these decks the point of rascals is to bait the log (In mortar bait you tend to bait arrows not log and loon deck they work as a tank/air support for loon) So buffing the girls to survive log makes using rascals in those decks obsolete, killing a whole archetype for rascals while also buffing mortar variants which are already good. While this might increase rascals win rate it would decrease their use rate which is already low.
So how do you buff rascals?
Cleary the problem with rascals is that if the ras-gals get logged away you essentially spent 3 elixir on the boy who is a worse version of the knight, so to make rascals worth it you gotta make the boy a bit better but how?
Well compared to the knight the rascal boy has more HP but he does less damage abd swings slower, the knight does 222 dps while the rascals boy only does 117 dps almost 52.8%of the knights. We don't want the rascal boy to be as good as the knight because he comes with the 2 ras-gals but his damage is awful.
The knight has a real sword and the boy has a wooden sword so he shouldn't do as much damage as the knight but he should definitely swing faster, increasing his hit speed from 1.5s to 1.2s changes the boys dps to 147, 66.1% of the knights dps, this is a major buff that isn't exactly broken either.
However I have a few other suggestions alternative to the one listed above.
This first one is quite simple, give the rascal boy a shield like how guards royal recruits and dark prince have. This makes rascals better against mk pekka bandit, sparky, princes, mighty miner and spells like log and fireball since the rascal boy will be full health after interactions that usually took 16%-68% of his health in one shot.
Another buff would be to increase the range of the rascal girls by .5 tiles and to space them back from the boy by .5 tiles aswell. The reason for this buff is that if you don't have your rascal placements perfected you can accidentally get the ras-gals killed immediately by cards like wizard, executioner, mk and even magic archer by poor placement, this buff would help prevent those massive misplays which feel really infuriating while not making rascals much stronger physically.
Any one of these 3 buffs would help the card thrive in its current archetypes without killing any decks and would help increase their win rate and use rate and are way better than a hp buff to the ras-gals health. That's all.

2023.03.21 08:26 dice1899 LFMW Rebuttal, Part 9: The Early Church – The Witnesses [B]

Posts in this series (note: link will not work properly in old Reddit or 3rd-party apps):
Last week, I briefly mentioned some of the insults and ill-treatment that have come my way because of writing these posts. One of the primary accusations made against me was that I was trying to make a name for myself. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
I have personally advertised these posts a grand total of six times: when I made my first Reddit post regarding the CES Letter, I went to a private LDS-related sub with about 30 active members and asked that if anyone had anything further they’d found, to share it in the comments of the post; when FAIR asked if they could repost them, I linked to the first one on my Facebook account and told my friends for the first time what I’d been doing for the past six months; I also mentioned when FAIR and Jennifer Roach each graciously invited me onto their podcasts; I announced this current series on Facebook; and I thanked FAIR for giving me an award at last year’s Conference, as well as all of the people who had been so supportive of me to that point. That’s it.
While I’m incredibly grateful to FAIR for giving me a wider platform and I’m very proud of the work I’ve put out, my goal was never to get attention for myself. I haven’t been searching out ways to put myself in the spotlight. I wasn’t even the one who approached FAIR; it was the other way around. In my offline life, I’m pretty shy and introverted, and attention actually makes me uncomfortable. It’s been an adjustment these past few years, with people suddenly knowing my name and recognizing my face. I don’t regret putting my real name to my writing and numerous blessings have come my way because of it. I’ve made a lot of friends, and the FAIR audience is generous and amazing and inspiring. But honestly, it hasn’t been easy and it wasn’t my intention.
I had five goals when writing the original CES Letter series:
1) To say that yes, these questions actually have been answered, and to share a few of those answers
2) To offer up a bunch of resources people could use to investigate the truth for themselves and find their own answers
3) To teach people how to evaluate sources and rank them according to their reliability and trustworthiness
4) To teach people how to study with the Spirit by their side, and
5) To point out manipulation tactics and fallacies commonly used by critics in their attacks
Ultimately, my intent was always to teach people how to maintain and grow their faith in Christ and in His restored gospel.
And you know what? Intention matters. It’s why I spent time at the beginning of each of these blog series delving into the background and prior statements of the authors whose documents we’re discussing. It’s why I give background information on some of the notable figures that come up. It’s why we need to learn how to evaluate sources in the first place.
A hostile source has a bias and an agenda. So does a friendly source, and so does a neutral source. Jeremy Runnells and Thomas Faulk have a bias and an agenda against the Church. I have a bias and an agenda in favor of the Church. You need to know that going into this material. Their intention is to tear down your faith. Mine is to build up your faith. I’ve been upfront about that right from the beginning. Have they? Because that’s information that you can use while evaluating our reliability and trustworthiness. Which of us is hiding information from you? Which of us is cutting quotes out of all context to give a false impression? Which of us is telling you to trust them, and which is telling you to trust God, the ultimate source of truth?
I’m bringing this all up because today’s topic involves accounts written by sources that need to be treated with caution. However, Thomas Faulk presents them as being completely truthful. Understanding how to evaluate sources is critical, and it’s only going to become more so as the years go by.
We all know that we can’t trust everything we read on the internet. Or, at least, we should know that. But for some reason, a lot of otherwise very smart, capable people don’t hold history books to the same standard. They need to. People make mistakes, and people have biases that aren’t always immediately clear.
You know the saying, “History was written by the winners”? That’s true. Historians have agendas, too. For a prime example of this, you don’t need to look any farther than D. Michael Quinn’s thoroughly debunked Same-Sex Dynamics Among Nineteenth-Century Americans: A Mormon Example.
In today’s chunk of the LFMW, Faulk picks up with a discussion about the Eight Witnesses:
  • The 8 Witnesses
On March 25, 1838, Martin Harris testified in public that none of the 3 or 8 witnesses saw or handled the physical plates.
That’s a mischaracterization of what we know.
After the fall of the Kirtland Safety Society bank in 1837, most of the Saints left Kirtland in early 1838. By the time this meeting occurred, a faction led by Warren Parrish had taken control of the temple with the intent, according to George A. Smith, “to renounce the Book of Mormon and Joseph Smith, and take the ‘Mormon’ doctrines to overthrow all the religions in the world, and unite all the Christian churches in one general band, and they to be its great leaders.” He also said, “One of them told me that Moses was a rascal and the Prophets were tyrants, and that Jesus Christ was a despot, Paul a base liar and all religion a fudge. And Parrish said he agreed with him in principle.”
Eventually, a growing division between the members of the faction came to a head, and they held a meeting to determine the validity of the Book of Mormon and other revelations Joseph received. This is the meeting referred to in Burnett’s letter.
I’m going to briefly skip ahead in the LFMW, just so the rest of this explanation makes sense:
A letter on dated April 15, 1838, Stephen Burnett wrote the following to Lyman Johnson:
“I have reflected long and deliberately upon the history of this church and weighed the evidence for and against it — loth to give it up — but when I came to hear Martin Harris state in public that he never saw the plates with his natural eyes only in vision or imagination, neither Oliver [Cowdery] nor David [Whitmer] and also that the eight witnesses never saw them and hesitated to sign that instrument for that reason, but were persuaded to do it, the last pedestal gave way, in my view our foundations was sapped and the entire superstructure fell a heap of ruins, … I was followed by W. [Warren] Parish, Luke Johnson and John Boynton, all of who concurred with me. After we were done speaking, M[artin] Harris arose and said he was sorry for any man who rejected the Book of Mormon for he knew it was true, he said he had hefted the plates repeatedly in a box with only a tablecloth or handkerchief over them, but he never saw them only as he saw a city through a mountain. And said that he never should have told that the testimony of the eight was false, if it had not been picked out of air but should have let it passed as it was.” (
Burnett was a member of Parrish’s band of dissenters, and believed that Martin Harris recanted his testimony during this speech. Parrish agreed with his assessment, though George A. Smith, who was in town during the meeting, reported the opposite. He said that Harris testified in favor of the Book of Mormon’s truthfulness, and said that anyone who rejected it would be damned.
According to a Church Institute Manual handout, “Martin Harris strongly objected to how Burnett described his testimony and ‘remained a convinced Book of Mormon believer.’” The quote is taken from Richard L. Anderson’s fantastic book, Investigating the Book of Mormon Witnesses:
We are of course seeing Harris through the mind of a frustrated intermediary, one who thinks Mormonism presents a “whole scene of lying and deception.” He thinks that Martin Harris has not really seen the plates. If “only in vision,” then Burnett (not Harris) says it was really just “imagination.” If the Three Witnesses “only saw them spiritually,” then Burnett (not Harris) can explain it as essentially “in vision with their eyes shut.” But Martin Harris felt misrepresented, or he would not have stood up in the Kirtland Temple to challenge the explanations of Burnett and his disaffected associates. Note that there are two distinct experiences of Harris: (1) “he said that he had hefted the plates repeatedly in a box with only a tablecloth or handkerchief over them, but he never saw them, only as he saw a city through a mountain”; (2) “he never saw the plates with his natural eyes, only in vision.” Getting at the real Martin Harris requires subtracting Burnett’s sarcasm that seeps into the above wording. … In other words, Burnett heard Martin say that he had seen the plates in vision, and when Burnett uses “only” four times to ridicule the experience, that shows his disbelief, not Martin’s speech. Martin’s candid denial of seeing the plates while translating was sometimes exaggerated into a denial of ever seeing the plates, but even Burnett reports Martin claiming two types of contact with the plates: lifting them thinly covered, plus later seeing them in the hands of the angel. So Burnett paraphrased Martin Harris with the evident rationalizations of a skeptic. But Martin knew his own experience and remained a convinced Book of Mormon believer. Study of his interviews shows how strongly he insisted that the sight of the angel and plates was as real as the sight of the physical objects around him….
In fact, Burnett’s own letter says that when Harris realized how Burnett and others interpreted his testimony, he stood back up and testified of the Book of Mormon, them said that his previous comments had been “picked out” of him under duress.
Now, there is a slight discrepancy on what this letter actually says. The Joseph Smith Papers Project transcribes this line as “picked out of air.” However, in his Early Mormon Documents, Volume 5, Dan Vogel transcribes it as “picked out of [h]im.” When you zoom in on the text, it’s hard to tell exactly what it says. Either way, though, the point is clear that in Burnett’s own words, Harris felt like he’d been forced into making whatever statement he may have made about the Eight Witnesses.
So, since none of these are firsthand accounts from Harris himself, we have to try to judge the sources on their merits. Burnett and Parrish claim Harris said one thing, Smith felt he said something else. And, as was just pointed out, Burnett’s letter later shows Harris agreeing with Smith.
Personally, to me, it sounds like Burnett and Parrish mischaracterized the situation. Regardless of where you land on that, however, it’s obvious that the actual situation is a lot more questionable than Faulk’s proclamation makes it seem. The following sentence actually comes in between the first sentence I quoted from Faulk and the letter:
This statement caused apostles Luke S. Johnson, Lyman E. Johnson, John F. Boynton, high priest Stephen Burnett and LDS Seventy Warren Parish to leave the church.
This is factually untrue. They left the Church because of the failure of the Kirtland Safety Society. As most of the people listed in that sentence were apostles at the time, their departures from the Church are well-documented.
Luke Johnson denounced Joseph alongside Warren Parrish and many others in late 1837 and at that point resigned from the Church. He was formally excommunicated alongside his brother Lyman E. Johnson and David Whitmer on April 13, 1838.
That denunciation took place shortly after December 10, 1837. All of those listed by Faulk were among those who denounced Joseph at this time. The History of the Church had this to say about it:
I returned to Kirtland on or about the 10th of December. During my absence in Missouri Warren Parrish, John F. Boynton, Luke S. Johnson, Joseph Coe, and some others united together for the overthrow of the Church. Soon after my return this dissenting band openly and publicly renounced the Church of Christ of Latter-day Saints and claimed themselves to be the old standard, calling themselves the Church of Christ, excluding the word “Saints,” and set me at naught, and the whole Church, denouncing us as heretics, not considering that the Saints shall possess the kingdom according to the Prophet Daniel.
Remember, The History of the Church was written to sound like it was Joseph speaking, but there’s no guarantee this paragraph was actually taken from his own words. It may have been the recollection of someone else entirely that was rewritten to sound like Joseph’s voice.
John F. Boynton was excommunicated in 1837. So was Warren Parrish. In fact, between July and August of 1837, Parrish was the one who led the armed riot inside the Kirtland Temple, an incident in which Boynton participated. They were well out of the Church before that letter of Burnett’s was ever written.
The only one whose timeline of apostasy is at all murky is Stephen Burnett. Most sources just say that he apostatized “by 1838.” He was one who participated in that denunciation of Joseph in December of 1837, but it’s unclear whether he actually left the Church at this point or within the next few months of early 1838.
There was no love lost between Burnett and Joseph. In the Elder’s Journal from August 1838, Joseph described Burnett as an “little ignorant blockhead ... whose heart was so set on money that he would at any time, sell his soul for fifty dollars and then think he had made an excellent bargain; and who had got wearied of the restraints of religion, and could not bear to have his purse taxed.”
So, clearly, by the time April 1838 rolled around, Burnett and Parrish were both incredibly hostile toward the Church and particularly toward Joseph Smith. That bias has bearing on how we should view their characterization of the meeting featuring Martin Harris, just like Richard L. Anderson explained above.
And let’s not forget the words of Martin Harris himself:
[N]o man ever heard me in any way deny the truth of the Book of Mormon, the administration of the angel that showed me the plates; nor the organization of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, under the administration of Joseph Smith Jun., the prophet the Lord raised up for that purpose, in these the latter days, that he may show forth his power and glory. The Lord has shown me these things by his Spirit–by the administration of holy angels–and confirmed the same with signs following....
A similar point was made by John Whitmer, the next Witness we’re going to discuss:
I have never heard that any one of the three or eight witnesses ever denied the testimony that they have borne to the Book as published in the first edition of the Book of Mormon. There are only two of the witnesses to that book now living, to wit., David Whitmer, one of the three, and John Wh[itmer], one of the eight. Our names have gone forth to all nations, tongues and people as a divine revelation from God. And it will bring to pass the designs of God according to the declaration therein contained.
These men were firm in their testimonies. Each one of them died still declaring their testimonies to the world.
On April 5, 1839 member of the Church, Theodore Turley, challenged John Whitmer, one of the 8 witnesses, to either affirm or deny his testimony regarding the gold plates. Whitmer responded by saying “I now say, I handled those plates ... they were shown to me by a supernatural power.” (History of the Church, vol.3 p307).
According to the 1828 Webster’s Dictionary, “supernatural” was synonymous with “miraculous” in Joseph’s day. The Witnesses appeared at various times to use the word to mean “by the power of God.”
As FAIR explains, three years before this report by Turley, John Whitmer said:
I desire to testify unto all ... that I have most assuredly seen the plates from whence the Book of Mormon [was] translated, and that I have handled these plates, and know of a surety that Joseph Smith, jr. has translated the Book of Mormon by the gift and power of God.
Then, in 1839, Turley reports Whitmer as making this statement:
Whitmer replied: ‘I now say, I handled those plates; there were fine engravings on both sides. I handled them;’ and he described how they were hung [on rings], and [said] ‘they were shown to me by a supernatural power;’ he acknowledged all.
And then, in late 1877 or early 1878, Myron Bond reported Whitmer as saying:
John Whitmer told me last winter ... [that he] ‘saw and handled’ [the plates and] ... helped to copy [the Book of Mormon manuscript] as the words fell from Joseph’s lips by supernatural or [A]lmighty power.
In each of these three statements, he declared that he both physically saw and handled the plates. Then he closed each statement by also testifying of the miraculous nature of the Book of Mormon. In the Turley incident, if it was reported accurately, he wasn’t saying that he didn’t literally see and handle the plates. He was saying that the plates themselves were miraculous. It was miraculous that Joseph received them, that he was able to translate them, and that Whitmer was allowed to see them for himself.
Again, situations like this are why we need to research these questions. If we only looked at one quote presented in a slanted manner, we wouldn’t know that this was a common pattern of Whitmer’s, and that he didn’t mean what Faulk implies he meant.
Why would a supernatural power be necessary if the plates actually existed? Couldn’t Joseph just invite the men he wanted to be witnesses over to his house, take the plates out of the box where he kept them and pass them around?
That’s exactly what was done when the Eight Witnesses saw the plates. They went into the woods to do it, but Joseph is the one who handed the plates over to them and let them hold them and turn the leaves.
The Three Witnesses were a different story, but there’s a reason why they were shown the plates by an angel. If their testimony was exactly the same as that of the Eight Witnesses, critics could claim that Joseph just manufactured the plates himself and there was nothing miraculous about it. And if all of the testimonies were like that of the Three Witnesses, they could claim that the plates never actually existed and that Joseph made the entire thing up. But this way, it’s a lot harder to account for the two different types of testimony.
Why are visions and supernatural means necessary to see these plates?
They weren’t. They are now, because the plates were returned to the Angel Moroni, but that wasn’t the case in 1829. They needed to pray for permission to see the plates, but they didn’t need to be shown them through miraculous means. The Three Witnesses were shown the plates by an angel to prove as true the Lord’s revelation that they had to see them by faith.
However, the two different types of testimony, one spiritual and one practical, make it that much harder to dismiss their testimonies. I have no doubt that was by design.
Published on are the signed statements by the 3 and 8 witnesses. JosephSmithPapers reveals that both statements and all signatures are in the handwriting of Oliver Cowdery. The official statements printed in the Book of Mormon are not signed with original signatures, dated or given a specific location where the events occurred.
The only surviving full copy of the Book of Mormon manuscript is the printer’s manuscript. It’s in Oliver’s handwriting because he copied it from the original manuscript so that they’d have two copies available.
In October of 1841, Joseph put the original copy in the cornerstone of the Nauvoo House. More than 40 years later, Emma’s second husband, Lewis Bidamon, made some renovations to the house and rediscovered it. It was badly damaged by water seepage and mold, and the Witness statements were some of the most damaged because they were at the back of the original Book of Mormon, not the front. Bidamon displayed the pages and gave many away to visitors to the house. Today, only about 28% of it is still intact, and even many of those pages and fragments are damaged. Extensive efforts to conserve them have been undertaken by both the Church and the Wilford Woodruff Museum, the two places where the bulk of the remaining pages survive. Private collectors have other additional fragments.
We have one statement from John Whitmer saying he signed the original copy, and three accounts of Joseph F. Smith saying that David Whitmer said he signed it as well (here, here, and here). There’s also a fourth David Whitmer account saying that Oliver copied their names onto the printer’s manuscript. Whitmer initially believed he had the original manuscript, which had previously been in Oliver’s possession until his death, but later came to accept that he had the printer’s copy.
Aside from the John Whitmer account, these are all secondhand reports, some given several decades later. As such, they should be treated with some skepticism. But, as most of them come from a prophet, I do personally lend them some weight and consider them to be pretty solid sources.
It’s true they’re not dated, but we know approximately when the experiences happened (in June of 1829) and where they happened. The Three Witnesses were shown the plates by the angel in the woods near the Whitmer home, while a few days later, the Eight Witnesses were shown them in the woods near the Smith home in Palmyra.
It should be noted that in John Whitmer’s final interview, published after his death, the details differ from the other accounts. He’s quoted as saying that he was shown the plates inside Joseph’s home, in two groups of four rather than all at once. However, this does conflict with other accounts, and David Whitmer publicly disputed the accuracy of the interview when it was published.
These are not 11 legally sworn statements; rather it seems possible that they are simple accounts pre-written, pre-signed and agreed upon at some later time.
This is a comment ripped straight out of the CES Letter. No, these are not legally sworn statements, but who on earth ever claimed that they were? Why would anyone think that? There’s no notary information on the statement.
And obviously, the printer’s manuscript was pre-written and pre-signed, since it’s not the original manuscript. But nothing other than the content of the statement was agreed upon at a later time. They all declared repeatedly, until the end of their lives, that they experienced the things they testified in those statements that they experienced.
In addition, consider the statement by Martin Harris (one of the 3 witnesses): “…and also that the eight witnesses never saw them and hesitated to sign that instrument for that reason, but were persuaded to do it.”
And, as we covered in the beginning of this post, that statement is suspect. It’s not a direct quote, it’s a summary from a hostile source’s letter—and that same letter said that Harris disavowed this statement.
Also, it’s worth pointing out that Martin Harris was not present when the Eight Witnesses handled the plates. He didn’t know what they experienced any more than we can. All any of us has to go on is their signed statement and the other comments they made about their experiences over the years. It’s not our place, and it’s certainly not Harris’s place, to redefine their experiences for them.
Reportedly this source document is printer’s manuscript and the original was only partially ruined, however the Church has never been able to produce the original.
Oh, good heavens. Yes, this is the printer’s manuscript, as we went over, and yes, the original was mostly damaged. The Church has produced the original on the Joseph Smith Papers Project. However, they did not obtain it until 2017. Prior to that, it was owned by the RLDS/Community of Christ Church, and the Church could not publish it in full color due to copyright reasons. There was a black and white copy copyrighted to the Community of Christ available on the website before that point.
So, in wrapping this all up, there was a clear, consistent theme running throughout this entire post. Vet your sources, guys. People lie, they twist the facts, and they have agendas. Be aware of that, and do your homework. Yeah, it can take a long time to do that, I get it. But the truth is important. When we hear slanted rhetoric like this, it’s not always obvious what the truth really is. We have to put in the work to figure it out. The Lord rewards us when we do. Remember, it’s after the trial of our faith that the witness of the truth comes to us.

[E] “In your pants. You got deep pockets?”
[T] “Uhh…I guess?”
[The handsome man smirks and winks at you]
[E] “Good. She’s gonna need that much space to carry both all of these phone numbers and the amount of self-respect you’re displaying here. Here’s my number, sweetheart. My name is Eamond, by the way, but folks just call me ‘E’.”
[Your boyfriend turns red. You turn redder]
[T] “Excuse me?? What the fuck do you think you’re doing hitting on my girlfriend like that?!”
[E, feigning confusion] “Whaaaat, I thought that was your girl over there! Mindy, isn’t that your man?”
[The girl looks away, smugness crushed under embarrassment]
[T] “Mindy is my ex. I came here to say my goodbyes before she left to return for school.”
[E] “Oh, cool! Then your girl should be able to accept numbers from guys that want to keep in touch after she leaves, right?”
[Troy turns, eyes blistering with fury]
[T] “...Look, I don’t know what your deal is-”.
[E, coldly] “I think you do.”
[SFX: The party quieting a little]
[T] “...excuse me?”
[E] “You know what my deal is because I’m the guy that guys like you hate the most. The one that can’t leave things alone when they don’t feel right to me, and what you’re doing is, no offense, fucking gross. You’re off your ass drunk but you haven’t even been here that long, from what I can tell, so you either drove drunk or hitched a ride to come and get your ego stroked while your actual girlfriend came here to get you.”
[T] “Dude. You don’t know-”.
[E] “I know Mindy. Mindy is also my ex. She’s also, on top of all of that, a manipulative snake of a woman who one hundred percent aimed to seduce you tonight just to rub it in your girl’s face here. I bet she gave you the ol’ ‘save me’ story, made you feel all manly and stoic, like a real savior, and you probably get off feeling good at something, right?”
[SFX: Stomping and a door slamming shut]
[He rolls his eyes as Mindy storms from the now quiet room and slams the door shut behind her]
[E] “Yeah, you can eat my ass right back, Mindy! At least mine doesn’t have any plastic in it!”
[T] “You are pushing me over the fucking line, man! Mindy, wait!”
[Your boyfriend stops as you yell at him]
[T] “Babe, I HAVE to go after her, she could hurt herself!”
[E] “Doubtful. She’s just using you, dude. Meanwhile, your girlfriend is here, being awesome, and you’re throwing it away for someone that did you dirty… Be smart, here.”
[Troy looks from E to you, enraged and struggling]
[T] “...If I leave, are you seriously going to hold it against me?”
[T] “She could get hurt! She’s tipsy too, and if she tries to drive… I’d be a terrible person if I didn’t at least check on her, alright?”
[T] “Look, I… I have to go, OK? I’ll text you later!”
[He hurries out before you can comprehend what happened]
[E] “...Sorry for starting shit. I didn’t expect him to be that… wow. Just wow. Are you OK?”
[E] “...He’s a dick to treat you like that. I understand he’s concerned about Mindy, and that’s fine, but she still has him twisted up… While expecting you to carry the workload while he takes his sweet-ass time trying to get his shit together. I don’t doubt she hurt him, believe me, but… Listen, me and the boys are happy to hang. It looks like you could use a night off from any more drama.”
[E] “...If you want to work out some of that anger, there’s always laser paintball…”
[He grins]
[E] “Ohh yeah, they have great nachos.”
[Fuck it.]
[E] “Yes! C’mon, boys, we have a nice lady to attend to. Let’s make it a night to remember, yeah?”
[They cheer, rowdy and obnoxious but… there. It’s a bitter feeling, leaving without your boyfriend, but you’re sure Mindy can take care of him just fucking fine.]
[To be continued]
Note: Apologies to all Mindys out there, I’m sure you are all nice, non-sociopathic peeps, for the most part.

2023.03.21 08:24 Grace-and-Maya Age Gap Friendship Rejection: Having a hard time moving on

I’m about to graduate college at 24 and I’ve been going to my college’s martial arts class taught by a married couple 33F and 35?M who have a toddler. Given that I’m staying in town after graduation I want to make some friends and I really like the two of them. So I was encouraged by my therapist to invite them for coffee. I did that and the woman seemed positive about it and talked vaguely about potential times. Then I brought it up again this week with the man present and he was like yea we’ll totally see each other at this different martial arts class so I kind of scrunched up my eyebrows and he backpedaled to coffee.
I don’t want to make things awkward because they’re my martial arts teachers, but it seems like at least the man is wary of being my friend. I get the vibe that he thinks it’s weird if he is teaching me to still be my friend. And that he thinks the age gap is too high. I personally don’t mind the gap. My best friend is 28.
I’m thinking of joining the class in town where they’re the students and maybe that will fix things, but I don’t like that teacher as much and maybe they don’t have time for new friends or feel like I’m too young to be able to relate to them. Idk. He’s an introvert and they’re both busy, so they have a lot of valid reasons to not be my friend, but I don’t know how to not take it personally. I’m just disappointed and sad. I can’t stop thinking about how I fall short and will continue to do so for this age range bc I’m single and don’t want kids.
How do I get this feeling to go away when I don’t really want to make other friends bc I don’t share interests with the general population?

2023.03.21 08:22 melky2020d Something that bothers me in S2 ep 1

Now don't get me wrong, I fucking love this series and I'm currently rewatching it, but I realized that the first episode of S2 is really bad. Not all of it, Aqua trying to break Kazuma out of prison was hilarious, but Kazuma's trial is handled terribly. At one points it comes down to this: Judge: Innocent Noblefuck: nope Judge: Alright guilty kill him Now, Darkness arrives and saves Kazuma's ass. But she does so in a way that doesn't even feel like her being masochist/stupid, it's just as if they needed a reason to get Kazuma in crippling debt again. It could've literally just been Darkness going like: as a member of the Dustiness family I demand this trial is held in a just way/this man is judged innocent. But instead she goes: "don't worry with time I can prove Kazuma's not guilty" like bitch he already did why Yes I am aware that analyzing a series such as Konosuba is kinda pointless but this thing in particular makes that part almost unbearable for me

2023.03.21 08:21 FruitlovingDruvJuice AITA for letting my son rip out of a chunk of my neighbors hair?

Here I apologize for my horrendous English, I grew up with a language that is not one from the Germanic family.
I (38f) have a son (12m) who has autism. Now his superpowers make him a bit less obvious to social cues, other than that he’s a genius with an IQ of 230. So when my neighbor LaQuisha (25f), who has a huge fluffy sheep like Afro, moved into our apartment complex my son wouldn’t stop touching her hair. Due to my mind being enlightened because of going on keto. I let him do it every time we saw her.
Now my huge huge neighbor who smells like a ball of grease walked in (36f) and said it was enough and she (LaQuisha) was “obviously” uncomfortable due to how this has been happening for the past year. But I just said if she had all of the dedication LaQuisha for her hair as she had for her body she would probably get a man by now so she has no opinion on this subject matter.
Well today LaQuisha came in crying because my sweet baby boy had cut a chunk of her hair off, and it was so hurtful because she had worked on it for so long. But my son is neurodivergent and a minor so he obviously doesn’t know better.

2023.03.21 08:21 Successful_Friend589 A Brief (And Earnest!) Love Letter to Dead Money

Man. Wasn’t sure where to get this off my chest but, wow. Just finished Dead Money for the first time (I know I’m late to the game, haha) and I may or may not have cried a bit.
I was just blown away at how fantastic it was. Yeah, it’s got it’s flaws, as all things do. Yeah, I got myself blown up a bunch and I walked into a shit ton of bear traps. (It sucked.) But I found myself really enjoying the characters and the story. (Plus I adored the atmosphere and the survival horror elements.)
I think the writing just really stuck with me!
“Finding it, though, that's not the hard part. It's letting go."
The chorus of “it’s letting go,” that follows that. Vera’s final message!
“Wait a moment, before you go. I... we... hope you've enjoyed your stay. Farewells can be a time of sadness. Letting go, difficult. As a guest of the Sierra Madre you know that truth more than anyone. Frederick Sinclair believed that one's life could be made anew every day. That fortunes were more than the wealth in your hands. Love. Life. Family. Those to care for and those who will care for you. To those who know these joys, the Sierra Madre holds little they don't already have. Out in the world, beyond these walls, that is your chance to begin again. I hope that you will return in happier times. Until then the Sierra Madre, and I, will hold you in our hearts."
I’m not quite sure why it affected me as much as it did. I think maybe I’m at a point in my life where I need to let go and begin again. I think maybe it reminded me of why I love video games. I’m excited to see what the rest of the NV dlcs have in store!
Feel free to share your favorite moments (happy, sad, or frustrating!) from Dead Money below :)

2023.03.21 08:21 jjking714 2 years ago today...

I remember waiting anxiously at the Fort Hood Soldier Center to sign my DD-214. It was finally time, and I was to be a free man. I remember the excitement, relief, and joy I felt as I drove out through Clear Creek Gate for the last time.
Fuck it feels like it was yesterday.
I didn't know then what life would look like. I knew we were moving back home in less than 2 weeks. My wife had a job lined up, and I was gonna play SaHD for awhile. Life was gonna be better.
It wasn't. Not at first anyway. Anyone who saw my post a couple months ago knows that I fell so hard on my ass I left a dent in my in-laws floor. 2 houses, twice homeless, 3 repo'ed cars, and 7 jobs later.... Well it's not necessarily better than it was 731 days ago. But it's better than it was 720.
But it has gotten better. It's been. A bitch of fight. And our family has done more to help than I could ever hope to repay. But we're getting better. Yeah, I'm still working on going back into the reserves as per my aforementioned post, the medical process is as slow as you'd expect. But I'm still slowly getting to a point where I can look at myself in the mirror again.
I see the comments all the time from people that are about to receive, or recently have received, their little freedom paper. I want you guys, and others after you, to know that yes transition can suck ass. It can take a long time to get where you need to be, much less want to be. We all know it's a major contributor to suicide rates among us. You don't have to do it alone. A lot of us feel cut off from our friends when we exit, like a door closes. But you can reach out to those of us on the other side. I was open about my failures before, and I'll happily go over them again with anyone that wants. Because if I can make even one person's transition just a little less difficult, lonely, and terrifying...
Bottom line to this long ass rant is reach out. You're not the first to be lost in the civilian world, you won't be the last.

2023.03.21 08:19 Tripstick999 Is it worth it?

Man, let me tell you. I feel like it was a bad idea to skip out on gaining lab experience in a hospital setting after I completed my rotations, but at the time it felt so overwhelming and the relationship between the lab staff and nurses was horrible (heard a woman screaming at my trainer over the phone about results - that stuck with me). I went into the reference lab life and though I didn’t have to deal with the bs I saw at the hospital and things were a little more chill, some of these places really don’t give a shit about proper training and it’s all about releasing results.
Now I’ve had enough. I really want to learn things the right way and apply what I’ve learned in school as I was only assigned to one department at reference labs. I feel like the hospital is the best option because they don’t fuck around in there and I’d be getting core lab experience on all benches. Is it worth it though? Will it make me a better tech? Or am I completely off on this one.

2023.03.21 08:19 aghjth Should I get a rabies post exposure shot?

(I posted this exact post in a different subreddit but wanted to know the opinions of people who research animals) This is kinda embarrassing but I need to know sooner than later. (18M) I'm currently in the Philippines and this morning I had to use the bathroom during breakfast to poop and while doing so I heard some shuffling behind the toilet so i stood up expecting a rat to show up and run out the door. Instead a small bat came up from behind and flew away, grazing my asscheck and then arm as it did so. I didn't feel any bite or scratch and there are no bite visable bite or scratch marks, I read somewhere that if you're in a room with a bat or had contact with one, assume you were bitten and get a shot, does this constitute enough contact to get a rabies post exposure shot?

2023.03.21 08:15 Significant_Egg9224 [Offline][5E][Los Angeles]East Side Heroes Los Angeles D&D One Shots Club

Looking for female (and non-male) members for East Side Heroes LA. (But, heck, we'll take a look at a new male member too, why not)
This is a curated membership D&D one shot club that meets every other Saturday afternoon in-person in my back yard in Altadena. We rotate the DM position each session and go on four hour one shot adventures, but keeping the same character, and the characters continue developing in relationship to each other.
The conceit is that they're quantum leaping between worlds, but there is an overarching plot unfolding as well. You don't have to show up for every session. We are fine with newbies if you are passionate about learning the game. The age range of our group is loosely 35-45 currently but we have / have had players aged 25-55 so far.
Currently looking for a new female member or two to bring balance to the force... Males are welcome to holler too, we not tryna exclude the world, but you know how the world of nerd can be. We do currently have female members, so don't worry you won't be entering some sort of man festival.
Best way to contact me is hobart w fink at gmail dot com send me an email, because I keep forgetting to check reddit. Thanks a bunch

2023.03.21 08:15 Desi_gey Does this sound like a conspiracy?

"To distract the comman man throw them bread and entertainment, if the get bored of entertainment, threaten the end of entertainment"
The whole gender idiologies just poped out of nowhere (not trans, the others) and somehow most medias, companies, got on board with it. Usually at a time like this, opposition is welcomed, but any opposition (not hate) is branded as an "anti social" behaviour. Then the Hollywood industry started following it mandatorily, not just this they went to represent racial/sexual characters just for the sake of it, or change old existing characters.
Doesn't this whole debacle looks like a unnecessary fight started by a 3rd person to keep Americans distracted? or am I reading too much into it?

2023.03.21 08:15 LilLostInLifeAgain 24 [F4M] #UK/US - Any traditional guys still out there?

If so then where have you been for the last year?!
Helloooo, so I’ll start with my dealbreakers to save you and I time. If you’re younger than me, in a relationship, female, unwilling to swap photos early on or you already have children, please don’t message me. Nothing personal, unless you’re cheating, in that case you’re gross lol. (Seriously, the amount of married guys who message me in ridiculous)
So, onto the positive stuff! My ideal guy would be confident, funny, intelligent, has his life in order, can hold a conversation. Knows what he wants from his life and from a woman. Physically, I prefer taller guys with some muscle. Not really into skinny or chubby guys, sorry. I take care of my body and want a guy who does the same. A workout partner would be great too!
I’m 5 foot, about 85 pounds/38 kilograms. No I don’t have an eating disorder, my GP says I’m fine and I’m happy and healthy, just small lol. I’m blonde, have long hair and I’m in good shape. I have some curves, I’m not flat but I wouldn’t define myself as thick or anything.
Relationship wise I prefer a more traditional type. Where the man takes lead, works, makes the big decisions etc and I’d stay home, do housework, look after the kids etc. Ideally I want to have 2-3 children.
Sexually I’m submissive, I don’t want to get into kinks and stuff publicly as I think it’s a bit strange but yeah, I’m not very flexible on that, I don’t like taking the lead in that department so I hope you can!
I’m currently in the UK, but I’m open to other locations within reason.
If this interests you! Send me a chat, let’s see if we can connect!

2023.03.21 08:14 iambrian81 Corrupted Meat Ball Ron took money from the real estate industry

"Since the Republican governor took office in 2019, rents in the Sunshine State have shot up by 40% compared to 25% nationally.
In the past year, as rents continued to soar across Florida, the real estate industry donated more than $7 million to Gov. Ron DeSantis, with about $2.5 million coming from real estate industry players who had not given in prior elections.
Since DeSantis took office in 2019, rents in the Sunshine State have increased by 40% compared to 25% nationally, according to data from Apartment List. In fact, Florida ranks number one in the US in housing unaffordability, with 56.5% of renters spending 30% or more of their income on housing. This places Miami, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Tampa, and Jacksonville among the top 20 US cities with the fastest climbing rent prices.

The Biggest Donors

Yet, as property values and rents continue to rise and become prohibitively high, those self-identifying as employed in occupations of real estate, developer, homebuilder, realtor, or property managemanagement have added to DeSantis’ campaign coffers, which at this time stand at a whopping $96 million cash on hand for his reelection bid. Twenty-eight percent of donations have come from developers ($5 million), and 6% of donations have come from realtors, over $1 million of which is from the Realtors PAC Florida.

RELATED: House Democrats Blast DeSantis Over Affordable Housing Crisis

“It is pretty clear to me that this is the main reason why the governor will not champion housing issues, and why he has been repeating industry talking points,” said state Rep. Anna Eskamani (D-Orlando). “That is driven by a desire to make money, and clearly [political] contributions are a means to prohibit real action.”
According to DeSantis Watch, a Florida Watch and Progress Florida project, the Republican has raised more money this year already than in all of 2018, 2019, and 2020 combined. And there’s no stemming the tide: DeSantis received more than double the amount in donations from the real estate industry in July than he did in June."

2023.03.21 08:14 HonoredMatrix Colby will get the next title shot... deal with it

The boss man already confirmed it, and Colby sacrificed by being the backup fighter. Usman was the backup for Woodley and got his title shot next.
But more importantly.. Dana loves numbers. Colby brings in the views and hype. He's the biggest active star in the WW division now.
Dana loves it, look at him talking about how wildly successful is Power Slap because it got 1 billion views on Tiktok. Now look at Colby's videos at UFC 286. It got more traffic than the main event Leon and Usman.
Its crazy. The only way Jorge may skip the line is if he does an askren to burns which is near impossible. Burns will bring him to the ground and grind him down. Jorge's time has long passed.
Belals def no getting it. Hes sent straight to the doghouse with Shavkat. He doesn't do numbers or promote his fights like Colby does diligently. Though colby is a Target Mcgregor, he's steadily improving in his promotion game and knows how to keep the fans interested

2023.03.21 08:12 pool2349 Why do some men get turned on by teaching a woman about sex

I am pretty clueless about men (I am in my 20s but I've avoided relationships with men for most of my life). I am attractive but just antisocial. I met a younger guy last year that actually made me feel safe. I began asking him questions about sex I've never asked any man ever. Ever since then he have an unconventional relationship. but we've never had sex or sexual things.
He is into casual relationships and been with many women about 20. but he is sweet and views me as his equal. But the other day he said, "Sometimes it turns me on, thinking that I was the first you asked those questions too." HE said before meeting him I was very innocent and that now I know more about sex. I know he likes experienced women, he told me that from the beginning and that he hadn't met anyone like me. He confused me because he always been into experienced women but since meeting me he claims he gets jealous if I mention another guy or about me trying dating apps. He told me once, " Don't talk about sex with anyone else but me." Is this a territorial sex thing for men?
