2023.05.28 18:35 lippylousue FSA + PSLF Form + Adjunct
Okay, bear with me:
I submitted my form in September, in time for the waiver, and it was pretty convoluted because it looked like I had 14 employers when I really had three. One of those employers is a university where I worked as an adjunct for about 11 consecutive years, and for whatever reason that institution generated a separate form for every year I was there - so it was like 11 separate reports on my work history, most of which was part-time. There were a couple of years in there that I was full-time.
When I go to My Activity in FSA, I see two entries for "completed" PSLF forms. One was for the form that I submitted in September, which reflects the 14 employers -- and some of my work history is identified as part-time, because I was an adjunct, and some of it was full-time for the times I was in fact employed full time.
BUT THEN: there is another "completed" PSLF Form from very recent, May 17, that has consolidated all of my work history from this one institution into a single entry, and it now identifies my work history at this one institution as continuous, from my start date to current -- and it identifies the entire period (all eleven years) as full-time at 40 hours. I never submitted a second form so it looks like someone either made an adjustment or -- I honestly just don't know.
Could this mean that my forms were reevaluated under the new standard for adjuncts, and that the FSA has interpreted my work history as meeting the qualifications as full-time? I'm just trying to understand what it all means!

2023.05.28 18:34 Specific_Mongoose711 Moving to Vegas with dogs and wondering about the bug situation.
Sorry if this has been asked before, I did try searching the sub but did not find the information I was searching for.
I am moving with a few dogs both are regularly treated with Advantix and will be getting the heart worm medication prevention before moving down. We currently live in Alaska and non of those things are really issues up here more moose and loose dogs. My question is how bad are the ticks, or other bugs? Will this be something I have to be hyper vigilant about?
All my friends are saying beware of scorpions and black widows but theyre also all from Alaska so I'm unsure if this is an actual major concern.

2023.05.28 18:33 bianque4u How do you envision AI editing videos?
GhostCut（AI video editing tool） is my answer. I have always had a vision of AI replacing repetitive manual tasks, and I believe it's time for AI to take over many of the repetitive editing tasks. For example, removing hard subtitles from videos is a completely repetitive task. You need to identify the subtitle positions in the video, adjust the frame accordingly, and manually perform these repetitive actions frame by frame.
However, AI can easily handle these tasks simultaneously for multiple videos, making it a simple process. In terms of results, AI can achieve higher efficiency and better outcomes in video editing tasks, freeing editors from mundane and repetitive actions. This allows them to engage in more creative pursuits. We also look forward to AI providing further assistance in the realm of creativity, offering innovative solutions and expanding the possibilities of video editing.

2023.05.28 18:33 MasterFridge I think my girlfriend is stuck under the yolk of her abusive ex
This is a weird one, not sure how to explain it so here goes..
My girlfriend and I have been together for close to 7 months. Her ex is the definition of controlling and possessive, lets call him John. They were together for over a decade and have a kid. John and the kid are in their home country since before xmas. John doesn’t know about me and her being together. She says she hides it so she doesn’t loose her kid, also so John doesn’t use her kid against her.
Imo she already lost the kid to John “side” by letting them go to their home country again. The kid has had John and John’s family in his ear the entire time, doing nothing all day. Not even school, as they plan was the kid to come back.
Here’s the catch, the kid doesn’t want to come back without John and wants them to be a happy family again and live together. Whereas my girlfriend doesn’t want to live with John again. She doesn’t want to live with John ever again, which I don’t blame her given the things she told me. John did the usual stuff a possessive and controlling person do. Beating, going through belongings and her phone, screaming at her in front of the kid and not letting her have any friends at all.
Recently she keeps ranting about it how much of a tw*t he is which is fair enough. John expects whenever he calls her for her to answer immediately, when she doesn’t he’ll keep calling and spamming the phone. She says she’ll block him etc. but never keeps to it as her kid is still with John. He demands photos of proof she is doing the thing she says but he can do whatever he wants. Which is only encouraged by his family.
This brings me to the most recent sh*tshow. After getting in last night we (gf and I) tried to watch tv before bed, but John spammed her in the same way as I mentioned before prior to getting him. She called John when we got back home and had a go at him. The day after, we’re eating lunch and I see her taking a photo of her food. I asked her why she’s taking a photo of her food as I’ve never seen her do it before. She said she always has and turned to me and said “am I not allowed to take a photo of my food?”, to which I said, “I’m not saying you need permission I just asked why” she said I’m annoying sometimes and I said how so. Apparently by asking a lot of questions, (I asked her once). She then gave in and said she just like to when it looks good. I thought fair enough but it was chips in a bowl with ketchup.
Anyhow, after she took the photo her phone buzzed and I know it was John as he’s the only one that talks to her, other than myself and obviously I’m not talking to her via phone if she’s right next to me. I thought it was suspicious moments after her taking a photo of the food John texts her. She slipped up and ended up showing the conversation when she opened it and I saw she sent the photo of the chips to John.
I’m afraid she’ll always be under John’s influence, but I don’t know if it’s because she’s keeping on his good side so she doesn’t loose the kid, or if it’s because she can’t let go of something. The thing that bothers me is that she lied to my face. I don’t know how to bring it up as it seems like a small thing but at the same time a big thing.
I needed say it as I don’t have anyone to talk to either so yeah. There we go Reddit.

2023.05.28 18:32 bill_e_midnight The victories worth celebrating
My last post I’ve been meaning to write this for a while and life got in the way. So it’s a little longer than I would like. To anyone who reads the whole thing, thank you. For those who prefer a TL;DR: My progress has been so fucking good. I completed a 4.2-mile race I’ve wanted to do since I was in college. I spent a week in Disneyworld for the first time ever and did multiple open to closing days without feeling like I wanted to die. I am on track for my goal of being under 300 pounds before my 30th birthday and take my first discovery flight on that day to begin training to get my pilot’s license. I feel so fucking good. Now onto the full post.
I never thought I’d write something like this.
When I was in college, my mother passed away unexpectedly. It was, as one might expect, extremely difficult and something I was nowhere close to being prepared for.
My mom was a spectacular woman in many ways but what I always admired her most for was not putting up with any bullshit people tried to give her. It was likely her upbringing in Jersey City, in the shadow of the skyscrapers of Manhattan, that fostered that.
When she passed, my immediate feeling was numbness. After returning back to school following all the business that had to be done at home, the feeling remained for a long time.
I remember not long after she passed, I was given my first internship. Since completing an internship was required for graduation from my program, it was something I had been long stressing about and venting to my mom about. So even after hearing the news I couldn’t celebrate.
Why should I if I couldn’t call my mom to tell her?
Suffice to say, my mental health after she passed was not good. I spent a lot of time by myself and when I was with friends I was not a pleasant person to be around.
It was around this time I had the idea of running a race that is organized by a foundation affiliated with my alma mater. I could not tell you how overweight I was at the time exactly but it was definitely well over 400 pounds so I knew I would have to do serious preparation to do it.
But I don’t think it will come as a shock that I couldn’t do it. It was a goal that simply was far too great for my current mental state and I gave up on the idea not long after beginning a moderate gym routine which I also abandoned to return to my room where I’d spend my time in much less productive ways.
It’s been over 8 years now since my mom passed.
If anyone has ever experienced loss in that way you’ll know that it never really leaves you. It certainly gets easier to live with but the thought of your loved one not being there for you is always there in your mind no matter what.
I have done plenty of growing in that time. I’ve had a few jobs. I started my first real relationship with a woman who I know beyond a shadow of a doubt loves me for who I really am and who I love in return. I have, what I honestly believe and will argue to the end of time, is the best group of friends anyone could ever ask for.
But there was always still this feeling that I was missing something.
If you’ve read my other posts here you’ll know I began losing weight back in September but really began taking it seriously around February. It was around then I decided to commit to walking more and more every day and being more mindful of what I eat every single day. During one of those walks it hit me that the same race from college was coming up in a couple months and they always have local versions of the race organized by the alumni associations.
I decided then to sign up.
I wasn’t planning on even jogging it. I was planning on walking the entirety of the race just so I could say that I could. But when I was on the sign up page it included a training schedule for people who wanted to prepare for jogging. The race is slightly over a 5K so the training plan is a somewhat modified version of “Couch to 5K” programs.
I realized that if I started the program that week that it would line up perfectly with race day. To make this as short as possible I’ll just say I was shocked at my progress in the program. There was only one training session I wasn’t able to complete. I felt great.
Mind you I was not jogging very fast, and still don’t go very fast on my jogs. Before the start of the race I had the goal of finishing in an hour and 15 minutes.
The run was not easy. Even with all the training I’m still carrying so much extra body weight that it is still very difficult. But I had so many of my fellow runners giving me signs of encouragement along the course I felt truly phenomenal.
I crossed the finish line in under an hour and hugged my girlfriend and cried. Her and my friends had come down from Los Angeles and made signs and all made t-shirts spelling out my name. Typing it now is making me cry again.
Race day was April 15, 2023 and I weighed in at 353.8
Today is May 27, 2023 and this morning I weighed in at 332.3
As of posting I am officially down 90.6 pounds since last September.
In the time between I got the chance to spend a week in Orlando visiting Disneyworld and one day at Universal Studios. It was the only week since I began training that I did no jogging but, in my humble opinion, I think I made up for it with the amount of walking.
Even on the “off” day I took from the parks I spent most of it walking all around Disney Springs and the resorts exploring. On the first night we stayed past close to ride Space Mountain and I felt incredible.
I love theme parks but for context, in the past I rarely if ever stayed to close because my body simply wouldn’t let me do it. We stayed to close multiple nights during the trip and I never really felt that bad.
I came back from the trip essentially at the same weight I left it despite having some poor options for food in the parks (literally the first thing I ate in the Magic Kingdom was a hot dog with electric green relish). The amount of movement during the trip was able to offset it thank goodness.
Upon return, I’ve tried to keep the jogging going although there have been one or two nights where I skipped it but even on those nights I went for my long walk. I’ve continued being mindful of what I’m eating while not feeling like I am missing out on anything at all.
Did you know you can get a power bowl from Taco Bell that tastes like all their other items but you can make it so it’s only like 450 calories for like a good amount of food? I just got that last night for dinner and while it’s not something I get regularly it feels like cheating.
Going to Orlando was a good reminder of one of the goals I have. For those like me who are big and also love theme parks, you’ll know that Universal is not a very accessible park. I can go on my soapbox but I’ll just say I think a lot of times it’s just out of sheer lack of consideration.
Despite my progress there were still several rides I couldn’t do. And even though I didn’t need a seat belt extender for an airplane I did need one for the Jimmy Fallon ride, but whatever.
But one of my goals from the beginning has been being able to go on thrill rides like those without worrying about fitting in the seats. I fully believe that goal will be achieved.
The other two goals I’ve had also are well within my reach. Firstly, I wanted to be under 300 pounds by my 30th birthday in November. At my current rate, I should be well under it by then.
I also have a goal of taking a discovery flight on my birthday as the first step to getting my pilot’s license. I’ll need to start calling flight schools to see if they have specified weight limits but I feel good about the possibility of it happening.
I still have a long way to go but there have been so many little victories as well. I recently have finally started seeing a difference in progress photos I take. There is a shirt I’ve had in the bottom of a drawer I wore maybe twice because it was too snug and I put it on recently and it was actually loose.
I feel really, really good. I feel like the things I’m doing continue to be sustainable. And I feel like I can do anything.
And I also feel like anyone reading this can do this too. Be consistent, don’t let one day define the story. It’s a long road but it can be filled with wonderful moments worthy of celebration.

2023.05.28 18:32 ThrowAwayHolidayFail How much longer should I (25f) keep waiting for my depressive partner (28m) to improve? I feel like my life is on pause.
TL;DR: My fiance is in a difficult situation with his job, but he doesn't take any steps to change the situation sustainably. He burdens me with a lot of emotional load caused by this and it is going on for a while now. I start to wonder, if I'm wasting my time waiting for his improvement and if it may be better to end it soon.
Hey y'all! This is my first post ever on reddit. I hope, I do follow all the rules :) (and sorry for the length. I didn't know how it shorten the story)
My fiance (m28) and I (f25) reached a point at which I wonder, if our relationship even lasts. We met 5 years ago and started out as aquaintances. We did so much together, travelled a lot, did all kind of fun activities and it was just great. We hit it off so good and about 3,5 years ago we started dating, moved in together and got engaged. It was great, we never had a major fight about anything, we share the same morals and got along with chores etc as well. We still did some great trips, however about half a year ago, this all changed.
My partner has always had some issues since I know him and I start to wonder, if they will ever get better (or if I should even expect improvement). He is in psycho therapy for almost two years now for his depression and they work on a holistic solution (addressing other issues, taking a close look on the family dynamic in his childhood and this kind of stuff). I think, that the therapy did help him, but I start to doubt, that the therapy will do enough for him. (It feels so bad and wrong to say it that way.)
Since I know him, he does always struggle with his job. He is a hard-working and skilled, experienced and educated, but only in crafts. He did not go to college after high school, because this was his wish (and I think, that this is completely fine). However, he hasn't found a job yet that he really likes, that's why he changes his job every few years. He doesn't put a lot of effort into finding a good job though. I tried to talk to him about the importance of a propper application, but he doesn't really see a point in them anyways and hates writing them. His plan is to write them thoughtless and get some jobs that may promise to be right and then find another job this exact way, if the previous one wasn't the perfect job for him. He won't go to school neither, which would allow him to do other jobs as well, because he doesn't like school. Honestly, I kept quiet until now, because I had hoped, that he would eventually find a good job and this problem would've solved itself. Hoewever, this did never happen.
The other issue, that affects me, is his inability to overcome his own bad emotions without pulling everyone around him down too. He doesn't want to do this and he feels really bad about it, however it still happens and I can't see improvement. It basically means, that no one else can enoy themselves, if he isn't in a good mood too. He doesn't provoke fights or is mean, but one can really kill the vibes, if they sit in a corner and go with "Why do you even bother asking me?!" or "*shrug * Whatever, I don't care". I am certain, that he does not do it intentionally, as I have seen this to be normalized behaviour within his family. He doesn't know how to regulate himself. I did try to communicate this with him, but he only understands it as "Suck it up and shut it up". Which is not true. I believe, that one can communicate negative emotions and yet still don't burden there loved ones with a constant bad mood. And he currently is always in a bad mood due to his job situation and I'm walking on eggshells to not get one of these snappy responses for any "stupid" or "pointless" question. I try to cheer him up and try to plan things, to distract him, encourage him to apply for another job etc. I don't know how to handle this anymore.
Today we came home early from the only vacation we could have together this year, because we can not take other vacation days at the same time together. We only did half the road trip, then on the ride to our next destination today he missed our exit (I even pointed it out to him previously, I really don't know, why he simply didn't took it or respond to me at all) and we accidentally went on the highway and had to drive quiet a few miles in the wrong direction. He said, that "This was it", took the next turn possible and we went on our way home (but he did miss a few exits too, which caused us to drive quite some miles extra, I didn't dare to ask for his reasoning, because the mood was icy). I offered to drive, since I do not want to spend the day on the road going wrong ways only and just accepted that he wasn't in the mood for holiday (this was not the first time, we quit something I really appreciated and wanted, because he wasn't feeling it. I did agree to adjusting the plans to accommodate him though). He finally agreed, and spent maybe half an hour looking for jobs, while I was driving. He finally threw his phone down and announced, that there were no good jobs available at all.
I feel so rejected by this, because right now, he is chilling with his friends in the garden doing a BBQ (maybe he's talking with them about his problems, making this time anyhow "productive" idk), instead of using our remaining holiday time to improve his situation. I'm torn. On one hand, I feel like, he should put his big boy pants on and finally write some neat applications and really put some effort into finding a job (or even going through some extra education to qualify for better jobs), even though, he may not like the process of doing this tasks. I did encounter tasks, I really did not enjoy, too to reach a higher goal. However on the other hand, I don't know what's going on inside of him. After all, he has depression and I don't. I will never experience the feeling, so I am hesitant to judge. It seems that he is not following his weird job plan that avoids writing applications and further schooling out of nowhere. He surely doesn't do this for fun. He is suffering a lot too right now and I doubt, he would maneuver us into this situation, if there was an easy way out. So I feel like, pressuring him into it, may not help anything and would only increase the stress for both of us.
On the quiet remaining ride back home today, I did question myself, how much longer I should keep waiting for him to finally get better. I think, that mid- to late-twenties is a good age to finally get your stuff figured out. When else will he? I feel like I waste my precious time by constantly adjusting and lowering my expectations according to his mood. I don't want this life for sure, but I really do love him (or at least, how he was at the beginning). I am hesitant to approach him or to even tell him, that he should figure his life out or else I'd leave. I think, that this pressure would block him only more so and won't produce anything benefital. I can't bring it over my heart to present him an ultimatum like this, because he might currently be going through something I don't understand.
Please, don't get me wrong. My partner may sound rude and reckless in this prescription, this is only because I'm describing problematic situations. He generally is kind and he acknowledges most of his wrong-doing. When we got home today, he apologized for ruining the trip and said, that I was so kind to him the whole ride back even though he acted that way.
I would love to hear your insight on how I could handle this and how I could help him efficiently. I know for sure, that I will be planning my next few trips without him. However, I don't know, how to gently tell him how I feel and I don't know, what I should tell him, which improvements or changes I would be expecting in the near future.

2023.05.28 18:29 Shellerellaaa Very worried after neck adjustment
Hiya. 28 year old female. 170cm 65kg. I smoke about 10 cigarettes a day. Other than POTS (I have low blood pressure with the tachycardia on standing) I have no other health issues that I know of. Recently had a normal brain MRI, clear chest x-ray, clear echocardiogram, clear abdomen ultrasound, normal bloods. Prior to getting POTS I was in the best shape of my life doing pole fitness and aerial silks.
Just wondering if someone could let me know if I'm just overthinking or if there's a big problem at hand. Backstory: recently diagnosed with POTS (got it from covid in 22). I have all the usual symptoms since. In February I had a fall where I hit the side of my head. It wasn't bad and I wasn't concussed or anything. Had an MRI on my brain after and it was clear. Didn't think anyone about it. After a few weeks I started getting headaches and some neck pain along with some dizziness (not light-headed but more like every now and again my head would feel like how when you're sleeping and feel like youre falling. It's hard to describe). I also started getting chronic nausea. I ended up going to see a chiropractofunctional neurologist 3 days ago. He also does functional medicine so I didn't expect there to be any adjustment stuff. I'm just at my wits end so just wanted to try another option. After checking my neck he said it was completely misaligned to the side. He pressed in one part and it was really sore but the other side was fine. He then said he thought a neck adjustment would be beneficial. I was terrifed but find it hard to advocate for myself so I agreed after he went through the risks. He did 2 other adjustments on my back and one on my neck. I didn't feel any different afterwards tbh. But then yesterday I started getting random pains up the sides and back of my neck (not severe but annoying) and my head feels a bit wobbly. It also feels like something in pulling in my neck and my upper back. I have mild pain in the sides of my head at times too. I'm also extremely fatigued (I normally have fatigue with POTS but not to this level)
My question is is this serious enough that I should go to EGP or should I wait a few days to see if it clears? I know some pain afterwards is normal but I read that it shouldn't last longer than 48 hours.
Also just to point out i will not be going back to him.

2023.05.28 18:28 sadit1982 What is the keto diet?
The ketogenic diet, or keto diet, has emerged as a popular dietary lifestyle in recent years.
This low-carb, high-fat diet aims to induce ketosis, a metabolic state in which the body burns fat for fuel instead of glucose.
What is the keto diet?
The keto diet is a high-fat, low-carb, and moderate-protein diet that typically limits carbohydrate intake to 20-50 grams per day, depending on individual needs and goals.
The diet encourages the consumption of healthy fats, such as avocados, nuts, and olive oil, while discouraging processed and sugary foods.
The keto diet aims to switch the body's primary energy source from glucose to ketones - the byproduct of fat metabolism - by restricting carbohydrate intake.
In the absence of glucose, the liver produces ketones to fuel the brain and other organs.
Benefits of the keto diet;
Several studies suggest that the keto diet may have several potential benefits, including:
- Weight loss: The keto diet may aid in weight loss by reducing hunger and promoting fat loss.
- Improved blood sugar control: The keto diet can improve blood sugar control by reducing insulin resistance and decreasing blood sugar levels.
- Increased energy levels: The keto diet may improve energy levels by allowing the body to efficiently utilize fat for fuel.
- Reduced inflammation: The keto diet may have anti-inflammatory effects, which could reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
- Improved mental clarity: Many people report improved mental clarity and cognitive function on the keto diet.
Drawbacks of the keto diet;
While the keto diet has some potential benefits, there are also some possible drawbacks to consider:
- Difficult to sustain: The keto diet can be difficult to sustain long-term, as it requires strict adherence to a low-carb, high-fat diet.
- Lack of variety: The keto diet can be limiting in terms of food choices and may lack variety.
- Digestive issues: Some people may experience digestive issues, such as constipation or diarrhea, when they first start the keto diet.
- Nutrient deficiencies: The keto diet may lead to nutrient deficiencies if not well planned, particularly low fiber intake and the lack of vitamins and minerals found in many carbohydrate-rich foods.
Starting the keto diet;
If you're considering adopting the keto diet, it's essential to consult a healthcare professional or registered dietitian before getting started, particularly if you have any underlying health conditions.
Here are some practical tips for starting and maintaining a keto diet:
- Start slowly: Gradually reduce your carbohydrate intake over a few weeks to minimize side effects such as headaches and fatigue.
- Prioritise nutrient-dense foods: Choose a variety of nutrient-dense, whole foods, such as low-carb vegetables, healthy fats, and protein sources.
- Track your macronutrient intake: Use an app or a food diary to monitor your macronutrient intake, particularly carbohydrates and protein.
- Stay hydrated: Drink plenty of water, and supplement with electrolytes if you experience symptoms such as fatigue or muscle cramps.
- Be patient and persistent: It may take some time for your body to adjust to the keto diet. Stay motivated and be persistent with your nutrition and lifestyle.

2023.05.28 18:25 Chrisg2003bt Custom D100 'Wishing' Well for Shrine of Luck
Posted on here not too long ago starting up a D100 list for the Shrine of Luck in Phandalin and so I've created the following from various D100 lists, curses, random magic items generators which are all free to use.
It's in it's finished state now! - so wanted to share it so others can use. Ill still welcome any feedback if you've got it. Only a Nat 1 and a Nat 100 are guaranteed to be negative & positive respectively. Everything else is assigned randomly.
I can't post the whole thing here as its a d100 with lots of info/flavour - So I've got a link to the table: https://www.evernote.com/shard/s444/sh/db2d7849-ccbf-3e0f-6c7b-f8e4a871ba4e/e4790460142e0a9b623589dc25a1aed4
I've posted as much as I can below:
------ ------ ------ ------ ------ Beside the shrine of luck stands an old stone well, the well has a sign affixed to its side that says: 'Loyal followers of Tymora, Goddess of Luck, may test their faith once a day by throwing 10 gp into this well and asking for her blessing. Tymora giveth and taketh - May luck shine upon you.’ Upon 10 gp being thrown into the well the following happens: ‘You hear the coins chink against the side of the well, before splashing in the water. Sparks fly up from the well itself, forming magically into the word [Keyword] before dissipating into the air.’
Then you (DM) resolve the result from the players D100 roll.
- Some results are immediately visible to all players in the vicinity and are described aloud by the DM.
- If the result requires role play from the player, and is not immediately obvious to those around them, the DM passes the player a note containing the intended effect (eg. Bookworm).
- Some results are held in secret by the DM until such time as they resolve. (Eg. Owlbear)
|D100 ||Keyword ||Result ||Notes/Mechanics |
|1 ||Talons ||Every magic item you wear or carry disintegrates. Artifacts in your possession aren't destroyed but do Vanish. ||Instantly revealed by the DM |
|2 ||Signet ||A silver ring appears on the rim of the well. The ring has a small hidden compartment. Ring is worth 50gp. ||Can store reasonable tiny items or liquid. |

|4 ||Heavyweight ||You are immune to being intoxicated for the next 1d4 days ||Role play - Not immune to POISON - just immune to getting drunk. |
|5 ||Clover ||4 leaf clovers sprout from your hair. The next time you roll below a 5 on an attack roll, you can re-roll. Regardless of if you choose to re-roll or not, the clovers rot and fall off. ||As described - player informed |
|6 ||Reflect ||Your next spell or attack targets yourself. ||Unknown to playecharacter until proc. |
|7 ||Thorns ||Spiked Vines grow from your body - any creature that touches you takes additional damage. ||1d4 pierce damage - Lasts 1d20 hours |

This ability recharges after every short or long rest. ||Item as described. Requires attunement. |
|9 ||Dagger ||A dagger falls from 30ft above the character, just missing them, and sticks into the ground at their feet. This dagger is cursed to always miss on anything but a Nat 20. Analysing or ‘Identify’ spell reveals this dagger does extra psychic damage on critical - it does not reveal the curse. ||Dagger does crit damage + 1d20 psychic damage on Nat20. |
|10 ||Bow ||Bow of returning - This is a +2 bow - however it has a hidden curse. Every arrow that is fired, if the arrow misses the player must make a Dex Save DC17 or get hit with their own arrow. ||+2 bow. DC 15 Dex save on miss or be struck by own arrow |

|12 ||Spoon ||The character finds a wooden spoon in their bag. Every time they retrieve an item they find another wooden spoon. Every time they investigate an area they find another wooden spoon. Every time they search a body they find another wooden spoon. If they intentionally attempt to locate, retrieve, or use a spoon the task is impossible. ||Lasts 24hours. Revealed by DM at first opportunity and all subsequent occurrences. |
|13 ||Kinslayer ||The character is consumed with a lurking urge to destroy those nearest and dearest to their heart, especially the members of their own family. Once every 12 hours the player must make a DC 15 WIS check, if they fail they must immediately attack the closest member of the party. ||Lasts 24hours, roll once every 12 hours. (3 rolls total during this period - start, 12 hours, and end). Fight lasts until one of the fighting party members is unconscious, then the urge ceases. |
|14 ||Cursed ||Roll a D6 - you immediately lose 2 points from one of the following base stats. (1) STR, (2) DEX, (3) CON, (4) INT, (5) WIS, (6) CHA ||Remove 2 point from the character randomly chosen by dice roll. Permanently. |
|15 ||Agile ||You feel the power of the gods flow through you - you feel lighter on your feet, you feel like you could backflip and might actually make the landing. Give it a go. Your Dexterity is permanently increased by 1 point. ||DEX is increased by 1 point. Permanently |

2023.05.28 18:25 a_man_and_his_box [FO4] Trying to solve a mystery, not getting ammo from gun pickups, and there are no loose guns in the world.
So I read this post: /Fallout/comments/y0dmt8/a_hidden_mechanic_in_fo4_related_to_ammo/irsh739/
And the long reply that goes with it. And my problem is: none of it works.
The original guy saying you need to pick up the gun separately in order to get the clip worth of ammo -- nope, doesn't work for me. Importantly, I noticed it doesn't work because somehow in my game, there are no loose guns anymore. If anyone dies, their gun is melded to their hand, and cannot be manually picked up. No guns scattered on the ground after a fight. Instead, you have to go into the inventory menu for that body, and select the gun that way. And doing so does not give a clip's worth of bullets. It gives no bullets.
(To clarify, I can see the guns on the bodies, as I said the gun is held in the hand. However, it cannot be picked up or taken out of the hand, as it isn't loose on the ground like in my previous games. All guns are now "one with the corpse." The gun can still be taken by going to the body's inventory menu, but no ammo/clip comes with it.)
ALSO, the guy who replied to that post and said he tested it tons and works in various ways -- none
of those ways work for me. I have no way to get clips of ammo. What am I doing wrong? I test on both my survival mode game, and a hard mode game. Neither game works, even with different characters.
I have a short mod list:
*HUDFramework.esm *StorageBot.esl *SimSettlements.esm *SettlementTidyBot.esl *Settler Sandbox Overhaul.esl *Faster Terminal Displays (20x).esp *Journey.esp *QuickTrade.esp *BTA_ForceOpen.esp *Scrap annoying things.esp *HoloTime_2.esp *Fog Remover II (AIO) Recommended w Dust-Leaves-Debris.esp *Fog Remover II (AIO) - Interior Fog Remover.esp *Companion Fall Damage Immunity.esp *PiperCaitCurieDialogueOverhaul.esp *Use Console Commands in Survival.esp *3DNPC_FO4Settler.esp *cVc Dead Wasteland 6.esp *cVc Dead Wasteland 6 DLC.esp *cVc Dead Wasteland 6 DLC2.esp *Quick Save.esp *FO4 NPCs Travel.esp *mso_sms.esp
Any ideas? What causes guns to meld to NPCs, and clips of ammo to be missing from guns when picked up? Thanks for any tips.

2023.05.28 18:25 Whole_Ad2270 I've had some bleeding/spotting two times this month now and I've never had that happen
So Apr 26 was my previous period so I expected to have my period on May 29 ish, which is soon. And I am having cramps rn and there is some bleeding so I think this rly is my period.
But my problem is, I've had spotting on May 12-15. And by spotting I thought it's just brown spotting but there's also some blood there and cramps. So I was like ok maybe my period is just really early this time? I've only had one short cycle before and it last 19days but I've never had two periods within the same month.
The last short cycle was last year on July. Idk why it was only 19 days when my cycle was usually 27-30 days. July was also the first time I had sex with my partner.
I don't want to go to the doctor cuz I went once because of some painful intercourse once, which was weird cuz my partner and I usually do it just fine even without lube (it usually doesnt hurt). So I dont want to go and just be told oh you're fine, It's nothing.
Im not taking any bcp cuz I dont like taking meds daily. I dont want IUD cuz i dont like getting things put in me and i can't visually see it, also needles creep me out. I also dont want the vaginal ring cuz no. I just dont like prescription meds.
And yeah ik my partner and I should use a condom (neither of us have tested positive for any STDs) but I dont like it cuz...it feels better without it ok? (My partner is even the one who asks me "u sure you dont want a condom" and I'm like nah throw it away...dont judge..) It's not like im forcing my partner to not wear condoms either cuz I've asked him if he does feel forced to not use condom but he said he also likes it. We wanna have kids but obv not rn cuz we're not that financially stable yet. So yeah just have to explain all that before anyone judges or asks those kinds of questions of why we arent using condoms or bcp.
The only "bcp" i take is plan B. I did try birth control before (vienva) but it made my period last rly long and I hated it. I'm not about to do that trial and test and get all kinds of prescription bcp out there.
Anyways, is the symptoms normal or should I rly go to the doc?

2023.05.28 18:25 roxxyantoinette Anyone else with a star sapphire engagement ring? I love it!
| || |
It’s a tradition in my fiancés family that everyone has a star sapphire ring. I’m not sure when or why that was started but I’m so grateful to be a part of it! I love the uniqueness of this stone. It’s extra special too because sapphire is my fiancés birthstone & also probably going to be my sons birthstone as he is due this upcoming September. We get are getting eloped on our 5 year anniversary next Thursday and I’m so excited. submitted by roxxyantoinette to EngagementRings [link] [comments]
