2023.06.03 05:32 LordofDarkness51 The Power Rangers Reboot won't be R-Rated it will just be PG-13

The new series will have a bigger budget and will feature actual actors, aiming for a more "mature" tone compared to previous iterations. However, I don't think it's going to reach the level of shows like Game of Thrones or The Boys. Instead, it will probably fall somewhere in line with the 2017 Power Rangers movie or the Marvel Cinematic Universe films.
Now, I've noticed that some Power Rangers fans seem to have an issue with this direction. They believe that the show should stay the way it has always been, primarily targeting a younger audience. But here's the thing, investing in a larger budget and hiring professional actors just to maintain the same formula would be a huge waste of money. It doesn't make sense to put in all that effort and resources without attempting to reach a broader audience.
Let's be clear, though. The new series won't suddenly become exclusively for adults. It's more likely to be a show that appeals to both children and adults, much like the 2017 movie did. We've seen plenty of examples where kid shows, such as Avatar: The Last Airbender, have garnered significant adult fan bases. It's about finding that balance between appealing to younger viewers while also providing elements that resonate with older fans.
Currently, Power Rangers sits at a similar level of maturity as shows like Paw Patrol or PJ Masks, which are undeniably targeted at a much younger audience. If Netflix wants to revitalize the franchise and make it relevant to a wider age range, a shift towards a PG-13 rating and a tone reminiscent of the 2017 movie or early Marvel films would make sense. Those kinds of projects have proven successful in capturing the attention and enjoyment of both children and adults.
Of course, I understand that there are fans who want Power Rangers to remain as the same maturity as Barnie However, it's important to acknowledge that the landscape of entertainment is evolving, and it's necessary for franchises to adapt in order to stay relevant. It would be a missed opportunity to squander a bigger budget and talented actors just to keep it on par with the maturity level of a Nick Jr. show for five-year-olds.

Ukraine has allegedly sabotaged Zaporizhia to melt down like Chernobyl, to stop the Russian invasion and justify NATO peacekeepers.
Here's Biden's plan to avoid another Kabul:

Russo-China rejects Biden

"Don’t underestimate Joe’s ability to fuck things up." – Barack Obama
Clearly we underestimated him. Americans can hardly believe that Biden blew up Nord Stream 2, essentially attacking our colony "ally" Germany. Perhaps they're still reeling from Kabul falling faster than Hanoi.
Normally Russia endeavors to cooperate with the sitting US president. However, Russian state media has begun airing the Hunter Biden laptop images, of Hunter engaged in drugs and pedophilia with preteen girls. This is retaliation for Biden crossing Russia's red line by repeatedly trying to sabotage Zaporizhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP). That's why Russia is willing to assist in the impeachment of a sitting US president, which is obviously an extreme step to take between two countries with enough nukes to blot out the Sun.
Rumor has it that China has also turned on Biden, which would make sense: China's economic backing allows Russia to survive US sanctions. China wants Taiwan, and Russia wants East Ukraine. They would be stupid not to cooperate.

ZNPP as potential Chernobyl

A Redditor explains:
Kawaii-Gopnik Russia really needs that powerplant without any leak, to provide industry of surrounding regions with energy, but very few people understand contexts of the current situation: Soviets built complicated and very well ballanced energy system, including not only NPP, but also cascade of hydro power plants. Donetsk, Dnepr, Zaporozhe and Kharkov regions are just one big power hungry plant. NPP itself is reliant on hydropower and quality of water in Dnepr river. In case of really bad "accident" Russia will forget about development of the newly accuired regions, lack of energy produced by NPP is significant, nearly 30-40%. Accident will affect south of Ukraine with russian majority. It will also be also disaster for ecology of the WHOLE Black Sea. Rose of winds will spread nuclear dust to the West - Poland, Romania, Czechia and further. Nuclear zone will stop russian army from further territorial expansion. This will be border formed by Dnepr and nuclear zones.
The basic facts are documented by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Even while shut down, ZNPP needs external power grid or diesel to prevent its reactors from overheating.
Russia controls ZNPP. A nuclear "accident" would give NATO pretext to intervene, so Ukraine keeps trying to cause one.
How bad is this? Well, Chernobyl is in Ukraine. That was a 1k MW reactor. ZNPP has six. It is the 9th largest NPP in the world.
Hopefully the containment response would be much better than Chernobyl's, but that's hardly something to count on during WW3. Russia's nuclear doctrine includes pre-emptive strikes; who knows what they'd do. The USSR nearly launched twice during the Cold War.
Imagine if China assisted Texas in seceding from the USA to rejoin Mexico, and then caused a reactor meltdown at Comanche Peak Nuclear Power Plant when the USA retook it. A lot of Southerners would want to lob a few nukes back at China. They might demand it.
It is foolish to assume WW3 will not happen because it hasn't happened yet. One should look instead at the historical record of continual warfare, and the difficulties in preventing WW3 so far:
Thus one cannot rule out a radiation release 6x as bad as Chernobyl. Not that Ukraine needs anything so dramatic. It merely seeks a pretext to justify direct NATO intervention to "protect" ZNPP. A small leak will suffice.
Even if there is a major radiation leak, it will occur in Russian-annexed separatist territory, and help Ukraine defend her new border. Scorched earth is a valid tactic, whether the fire is conventional or nuclear. Ukraine survived Chernobyl and knows it can survive ZNPP too.

Biden's Ukraine is desperate enough for scorched-earth tactics

Battle of the Bulge at Bakhmut

"We have been working on the counter-offensive with Ukraine for 4-5 months." – Victoria Nuland
Why is Ukraine so desperate?
Ukraine depends on NATO aid to fight Russia. NATO aid depends on Democrat willingness. Democrat willingness depends on US public support. Therefore the illusion must be maintained to the American public that Ukraine is winning. For this reason, Ukraine has committed its reserves to a costly failed counter-offensive. Bakhmut fell regardless.
James A. Donald summarizes the strategic picture:
So, bright new plan. "The Greatest Ukrainian Offensive". The Ukraine would build up a big reserve of fresh troops, then suddenly hurl large chunks of them at particular points on the front. They would, the Americans planned, cut through a point in the front lines, penetrate to Russian rear areas, wreak havoc on those areas, and force Russian troops in danger of being encircled to hastily retreat from territory that had been slowly gained at enormous cost in grinding attritive warfare. I do not know how big the Ukrainian strategic reserve was, but if it was two hundred fifty thousand, they have now committed most of them to grinding attritive warfare, and cupboard is looking as bare of men as it is of artillery and rockets.
The USA expected to break Russia economically; China's economic support prevented that. Despite PMC Wagner's heartfelt complaints, Russia is unlikely to run out of convicts anytime soon. Russia is rotating divisions through Ukraine, seasoning reservists for a looming WW3. Russia's historical appetite for losses is much higher than its current losses. This is essentially a civil war, and the Russia bear considers being carved up an existential threat. By underestimating Russia's resolve, NATO is repeating the error of Napoleon and Hitler.
Despite having plenty of weapons, Ukraine's military manpower is exhausted and demoralized. Raw conscripts are thrown at the front lines with minimal training. Medvedev predicts that the Ukraine will cease to exist; half its people have already fled.
Anonymous Sat 27 May 2023 04:59:49 No.428438077 Report 428437208 Yeah, the killing has been excessive since they pretty much destroyed 95% of Azov fags and assorted true believers in the first 200k dead, now they overshot it by 100%. About 12% of the non-Russian speaking population's prime military aged men in Ukraine are dead or crippled. 12-20% of the same demographic has fled the country. It's over, desu. They are seeing much more of the polish and romanian mercs now, since they literally lack the manpower.
Western mass media wrongly assumes that Russia is losing because it does not take the entirety of Ukraine in a blitz, as the USA did to Iraq. However, Russia does not want West Ukraine; the people there do not like Russians. Russia has captured the territory it wants, and is now using the rest of Ukraine as a kettle or cauldron, in which to conveniently destroy whatever NATO wishes to send. This is a good way for Russia to gradually learn how to fight NATO armies in a low-risk environment.
The Spartans had a rule never to war too often against the same enemy, lest they train up a nemesis. It was foolish of NATO to believe that Russia had forgotten the lessons of attrition warfare that it learned so recently in Afghanistan.
Nehming Names 9h Russia's prudent caution in directly engaging the West is bringing dividends in perhaps unexpected ways. Russia is gaining strategic knowledge of the actual capabilities and weaknesses of our weapon systems and military tactics, with our supply of munitions draining to militarily unsustainable levels, as it engages allied forces in Ukraine. Russia is aware of the continuing progress of the Great Awakening in the West, that is, the knowledge that Western governments, military, and institutions are run by an elite hostile to their heritage populations, and therefore expects to see declining support of Western governments by their citizens. Russia can also see the precipitous decrease in every societal metric in the West: social cohesiveness, general morality, public health, financial stability, military readiness, etc.With these three degradative processes in play, the most strategic thing Russia and China can do is to bide their time, as time itself will act to sap the strength of the West to militarily engage their foes.

Fresh meat

Russian conquest of Kiev would air Biden's dirty laundry to the world, from Burisma kickbacks to pedophilic field trips and worse. This would result in US "regime change". A distant Chernobyl is a small price to pay, for top Democrats to avoid the hangman's noose.
Poland is itching to invade. Victoria Nuland is scheduling NATO air exercises. USAF propaganda asserts that Russia's air force is a joke. The question is, do Americans still believe Biden's false prophets of victory?
If not, they just need a little "encouragement": 9/11, Gulf of Tonkin, Pearl Harbor, Lusitania, Remember the Maine… Keep those rural Whites busy lest they make trouble at home!
Most Americans cannot find Ukraine on a map. (To be fair, it hasn't been on the map very long.) However, the architects of Biden's Ukraine policy, such as Victoria Nuland, Jake Sullivan, Antony Blinken and George Soros, tend to have grandparents of Eastern European origin. I am sure for them it feels important. There's no place like home.
A Redditor explains:
tinglevibestoo I listened to a former CIA agent talk about Ukraine the other day. He said that Ukraine is running out of time. It's not that they don't have the weapons. We've sent them a ton of weapons. It's that they don't have enough troops and they're running low on troops. That's how Russia will win. Ukraine can't sustain the manpower. It totally makes sense to use a nuclear false flag as a reason to bring in the extra manpower. Everyone would deem it justified too because it's a threat to the neighboring nations and it'd be an environmental (climate change) catastrophe.

Teixeira leaks

Some will bring up the US intelligence leaks by Jack Teixeira to support the idea that Russia rather than Ukraine is desperate. Unlike Snowden, Teixeiera was obviously a major security risk for patriotically-motivated leaking, with numerous red flags in his previous and ongoing behavior. Therefore Teixeira was probably a deliberate leak by US intelligence, using a patsy to generate the initial leak and then add whatever extra info they wanted released in the resulting confusion.
Teixeira's leaks served several purposes for the Biden administration:
Most importantly, it mitigated the potential political fallout from another catastrophe like Kabul, should Kiev fall.
The 4chan leaker BB/Inb4source asserts Teixeira was a patsy.


The foundation of the US empire is the petrodollar, which allows the USA to tax the world via digital debt seignorage. This is why the creation of BRICS as an independent financial and trading system rendered war between NATO and BRICS inevitable, as Kim Dotcom predicted. The US republic is a thalassocratic empire as arrogant as democratic Athens, and it is addicted to financial plunder. The Empire cannot afford to lose the USD's reserve currency status.
Reserve currencies and empires both have lifespans, and the USA has reached the end of both. It is at the stage where hubristic foreign misadventures prove fatal, and Ukraine and Taiwan will prove too much for the American eagle to handle. This is no longer WW2; the USA cannot win a two-front war against BRICS.
That is why Biden's NATO is desperate; the Empire is unravelling as the European Union and other allies such as Turkey and India lose their faith in NATO.
The fact that none of this is common knowledge speaks volumes about who controls public schools and owns mass media corporations.

ZNPP's weak point is diesel fuel

The situation at ZNPP is tenuous and grim, workers report:
Europe’s largest nuclear power station is on the frontline of the Ukraine war. SkyNews Twitter
The fact that the backup diesel reactors have not been maintained is particularly concerning, considering they have already been used 7 times.
UN nuclear chief raises alarm over Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia plant Al Jazeera
Ukraine keeps trying to force a crisis at ZNPP to justify NATO intervention. In other words, Ukraine keeps shelling ZNPP to cut the one power line that still connects it to the grid.
This is extremely dangerous, external power is required for reliable cooling of the reactors and pools containing spent nuclear waste. Western media spent months last year pretending Kiev wasn’t shelling ZNPP.
Notice that the Russian side keeps ZNPP connected to the power grid, while the Ukrainian side pretends it cannot until the Russian invasion ends:
As you can see, Ukraine is not interested in being reasonable. Russia is happy to leave the NPP free of heavy military equipment, but Ukraine demands the removal of all troops and landmines from ZNPP as well. That would leave the plant undefended, which is obviously unacceptable.
(This is how perverse incentives work. A little ally with nothing to lose can start a world war. It's almost like dividing the world into two hostile nuclear alliances is a bad idea.)
When ZNPP loses external power, huge diesel generators automatically switch on to keep the reactors cool. How much diesel does this consume? Truckloads per day:
Anonymous Sat 27 May 2023 05:18:50 No.428439721 Report Quoted By: >>428463646 428436425 Still easy to transport diesel enough to keep them going In what? If NATO ops and Mercs are sabotaging trucks coming in, what do you think they are gonna carry diesel in to the plant? Is Russia gonna pack in rotopack Jerry cans on their back. Fill a truck up with 5 gallon cans and hope they make it past the snipers and sabotage? Do you have any clue how much fuel those big generators suck down in a day? Those generators to run the plants during shut down or failures are huge 500kw or bigger they are the size of whole 18 wheeler trailers. Those things will drink 50 gallons an hour. You gonna haul in 2.5 gallon rotopacks one at a time to keep it going?
Nuclear power plants have tough shielding. Allegedly the diesel generators are hidden underground. However, the diesel fuel supply is still vulnerable.
Normally the diesel generators have enough fuel for 10 days. However, ZNPP's diesel stockpile recently dipped to 4 days, according to 4chan leaker Inb4source.

Ukrainian saboteurs caught by ZNPP

On May 27, Ukraine accused Russian of planning to cause a leak at ZNPP:
OSINTdefender The Main Directorate of Intelligence for Ukraine has announced that the Russian Military is preparing for Large-Scale Provocation in the coming hours at the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant in Southern Ukraine that will reportedly Simulate an “Accident” at the Plant causing the Emergency Leak of Radioactive Substances which will be Blamed on Ukrainian Forces.
Then Russia announced it had caught saboteurs (presumably Ukrainian) in ZNPP's city:
Saboteurs who were preparing terrorist attacks on the NPP were detained in Energodar. They had with them maps and schematics of the nuclear power plant with marks for strikes that could lead to a nuclear catastrophe. The suspects are involved in collecting and transmitting information about the facilities of the Zaporozhye NPP on the instructions of the Ukrainian authorities. To communicate with the curators, they used foreign satellite systems, as well as foreign weapons for strikes and equipment for conducting reconnaissance and sabotage activities.
Enerhodar is the city that contains the ZNPP: See Enerhodar Wikipedia
Some object that the footage is "staged". Of course it is staged. The primary consumer of the helmet-cam footage is Russian military intelligence. The evidence shot was staged for their benefit. The short edited video that was released to the public has distorted voices, and avoids showing any faces. Thus even if the footage is authentic, it is still "staged".
The ZNPP maps displayed in the video don't appear to match the announcement text. The maps could simply show where diesel fuel trucks need to go. Russia does not wish to advertise the specific nature of ZNPP's vulnerability.
The saboteurs appear to be 3-man team, equipped with 3 rifles and 3 NLAW missile launchers.
The saboteurs had 5 frag grenades. Normally soldiers carry 2 or 3 grenades, but heavy weapons soldiers don't have to. The three smooth grenades are RGD-5s, a cheap outdated Russian model. The Russian troops removed the fuses from the grenades on the evidence table to avoid unpleasant surprises.
Some object that Ukrainian saboteurs wouldn't be so careless as to have printouts of the reactor map. However, the saboteurs' presence in Enerhodar already makes their target obvious. Presumably multiple teams were sent to intercept Russian diesel shipments.
The Enerhodar saboteurs would've been notified when satellites spotted their target. Until then, they should hide in the safehouse behind blackout curtains to avoid detection. The fact that these saboteurs were caught napping suggests a degree of incompetence, compared to other teams who presumably either avoided detection or fought back. One can assume that Ukrainian specops have suffered extreme casualties.

BB / Red Skull / Inb4source / Q

BB sent Q

Qanon has lost a tremendous amount of popularity, as patriots grew disillusioned with the slow pace of the promised Great Awakening. They did not understand that Q is subordinate to a higher power with an agenda that does not necessarily include their survival.
Q aimed to help Trump save the USA. Q was sent by "Burning Bush", whose agenda is judging humanity, on the eve of WW3 and runaway de-terraforming. BB's personas started posting to 4chan's pol by 2016, whereas Q started in October 2017. (4chan is like the wild west of the Web: The world's spooks congregate there to exchange intelligence.)
BB goes by several nicknames; he began posting anonymously as "Inb4source" in 2016. A recent message implies the USA/Israel is Babylon the Great, and God (meaning him) has returned to judge her:
The world has turned it's back on *od now *od Is turning His back on the world. He Who Lets has been REMOVED. THE ANGEL OF DEATH HAS COME THE HARVEST OF THE TARES HAS BEGUN. And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. (Earthquake Lights) And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. (nothing ever happens) Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burning, inb4source
BB claims responsibility for the historical pendulum swinging rightward, via figures such as Elon Musk. His method of influence is the butterfly effect.
"Burning Bush" claims to be God. One can think of him as the God of the Old Testament, or as a pagan god like Zeus, or as merely a transcendent extraterrestrial. However, he also claims to inhabit a human-looking body, lives on a ranch in the USA, has children, caught COVID19, etc.
Whatever one's theology, the relevant portion of BB's message is that the USA did not sufficiently embrace the opportunity offered by Q. Anyone who has read the Old Testament knows what happens next: Ignore the prophet, reap the consequences. Thus Q's slogan "Nothing Can Stop What Is Coming" should be understood in the Biblical sense, like Noah's flood: The Ark is optional.
(As far as I know, Q is still posting to Truth Social. I don't follow that site.)
Paul Furber is the chief priest of BB. Before that, he was a major early proponent of Q. See Furber's book for many verifiable examples of fulfilled predictions and proven scoops.
BB normally identifies himself by the unique image hash of his burning bush picture. (Nobody can generate that hash unless they possess the original image.) However, BB also posts as an anon users nickname "Red Skull", for his signature images of red skulls. As Red Skull, BB avoids the extravagant Biblical claims of BB, but the style and modus operandi and interests are obviously the same – as are his implied godlike powers.
I recommend focusing on facts and trying to prevent nuclear WW3, rather than getting hung up on theology. BB is not asking anyone to worship him or sacrifice chickens. He does prescribe prayer and a life of action governed by virtue.
I certainly do not recommend taking everything anonymous spooks say at face value. If you are, like most people, unable to think in shades of gray between binary true and false, this essay is above your reading level.

BB warns Zaporizhia is pivotal

BB has repeatedly warned that keeping Zaporizhia intact is critical to the survival of NATO citizenry:
the Ukrainians attacking the Nuclear Power station in the hands of the Russians spewing radiation over enough territory that the Russians will turn Kiev into a furnace.
– BB 2022-9-24
Find other warnings by searching for keyword "nuclear".
Those who find it difficult to believe that nuclear weapons would be used in WW3 as in WW2 should note that COVID19 is already a bioweapon WMD deployed for WW3.

RS gives ZNPP sabotage warning

On the morning of May 27, BB's persona Red Skull leaked that NATO specops had sabotaged external power to ZNPP.
His scenario is plausible and severe enough to warrant investigation.
Here are relevant posts, datestamped 2023 May 27 0300-0500:
it's a little less than ten days… Until Nato SpecOps melt down the Uke Nuke plant and blames it on you.
He continues:
Nato SpecOps have sabotaged power to the nuke plant. As of this posting, 6 days of diesel fuel remain to provide power to pumps to cool the plant and spent fuel pool. Diesel shipments are being targeted and terminated.
He adds:
So now I need to tell you Russia intends a pre emptive strike if nuclear capable F16's are delivered.
On the evening of May 27, Red Skull updated:
Doesn't look good at Nuke Plant. Russia has 4 days to get more fuel to the generators. They are working on clearing a flight path. Ukraine will try to stop them on orders of U.S. Uniparty.
Sounds like a severe leak, to lose 2 days of fuel in under 24 hours.

Ukraine HVT: Nuclear tit for tat

On 28 May Red Skull asserted that:
Red Skull approved of this anon's summary:
Nuclear warheads that USA/UK sent. Specifically for the purpose of being exploded in Ukraine. The false flags will never stop until all out WW3 is declared, or until you root out the pedophile demon cult that is running the show and sending you monkeys to war. War for really no good reason at this point. The cities are destroyed, just withdraw. Ukraine is a kettle right now, a kill box. Do you understand what that means? And it was created on purpose.
On May 30, Putin announced that Russia had destroyed the Ukrainian military intelligence headquarters. Photos confirm the damage.
Intelligence chief Kyrylo Oleksiyovych Budanov may have died in the strike.

Inb4source / Red Skull 4chan posting history

Inb4source has posted on 4chan since 2016, but he doesn't always use an image hash identifier, making it impossible to verify the identity of all of his early posts. As his popularity grew, others began adopting his catchphrase ">inb4source".
18016 posts on pol contain ">inb4source".
The first page of results suggests Inb4source is a pro-Trump military intelligence officer. He began posting in Aug 2016, before Trump's inauguration.
Another early Inb4source catchphrase is "I AM The Source." This has a double meaning, both theological and journalistic.
The catchphrase doesn't appear in every Inb4source post. Searching for it yields 437 results, too many of which are irrelevant results.
Searching for both phrases together yields 50 results that look to be mostly legitimate. One could then search for additional posts by each unique ID from a session.
Searching for image hashes is a reliable method of ID verification, assuming no one else has the image. I know of two such images that Inb4source/BB uses: both are red skulls, giving him the nickname RS.
RS just announced that his devices (phone, computers) have been compromised, casting doubt on the legitimacy of future RS posts. This may be a response to my publication of his warnings regarding Zaporizhia onto Reddit and Gab; the timing is suspicious. I first mentioned Inb4source on Reddit 7 days ago, and Red Skull on Gab yesterday (as of morning June 3). I do not know of any other analysts writing about him or connecting him to his BB persona.
When evaluating his warnings and predictions, remember that publishing info about ongoing events can affect the outcome, and is often intended to do so. Unlike the concept of Biblical prophecy, the future is mostly probabilistic. However, he is certainly good at scooping the news.
Someone else can do an in-depth Q-proof style analysis of his accuracy; my focus here is Zaporizhia.

2023.06.03 05:26 Even_Wallaby6464 Sudden onset of Agoraphobia at 34

I’m a 34 year female, who always struggled with anxiety, and panic disorder since a child. I had a panic attack on the highway at 19 and was never able to travel further than an hour or 2 backroads since then. But as of recent, just going down to the street to the store creates anxiety for me. I can’t go down certain roads and only feel comfortable with a few specific roads (very near to my house) just last year , I was able to drive by myself backroads to clubs etc that took about 45 minutes. Now just thinking about being too far from my house and being that I can’t even go down roads not that even far worries me. I have a son and the last year has been full of sleepless nights, anxiety, crying and worrying for his future with a mom like me. I try my best to do things with him in the area I’m comfortable with movies, restaurants and his baseball games are close. My husband takes him to the far locations. But I cry almost everyday feeling like a crazy lady who is failing my son. Does anyone with agoraphobia feel comfortable some days on certain roads and other days don’t? I can go 20 minutes one way but not 20 minutes the other way because that way down that specific road freaks me out. I feel so confused and sad every single day about this.

2023.06.03 05:26 Glittering-Hunter-23 WIBTA if I reported my neighbor to our HOA?

Hello Reddit! This is pretty trivial, but it has been driving me crazy for more than six months.
I live in a small condo complex with lots of open parking. It’s quiet enough that there are always plenty of parking spots, especially at the back by my unit. With the landscaping and layout, there is one spot in particular that is the closest to my door, but pretty out of the way for any other unit. Another car likes to park there, beats me why, so last year we sort of switched off who used that spot and who parked a spot or two further away. This worked fine for me, even though whoever owns this other car uses it far less often than me.
Last fall is where things started to annoy me. I noticed that any time I was in the coveted spot, if I left for ten or fifteen minutes, the other car would swoop in to take the spot before I got back. Eventually, they stopped moving the car at all, and it has been sitting in this spot for six goddamn months. I have been paying careful attention to snowdrifts, footprints, leaves, and I have seen no evidence of the car moving all winter. It has had a flat tire since January, so I know for sure it has not been used since then.
I know it’s petty, but it is a clear violation of HOA rules that state cars cannot be parked stationary for more than 5 days. I can understand a little leeway, but I think this is excessive. They don’t even use the car, why are they so possessive of this spot that is only convenient to me? In addition, I do have a chronic pain disorder, so even a little less distance to walk or carry in groceries can make a difference in my pain levels depending on the day.
I have no clue whose car this is, otherwise I would just talk to them about it. I’m really trying to just ignore it and let things be, avoid causing any drama, it isn’t that big of a deal. I get pissed off every time I walk past this asshole hogging this spot with a car that isn’t even driven, though, and I am starting to seriously consider reporting them.
My boyfriend thinks I should just drop it, and he also thinks the internet is going to eat me alive on this post. 😂 I think that there’s no reason for the owner NOT to move the car, but am I overreacting? Is this something that I need to just get over?

My(20f) family has recently bought a building to open a restaurant in. Today, an event that is going on for the weekends until the end of mid July, was held on our block. We decided to do a small sale of our food, in which practically our first opening.
I had told my parents before, that I did not want to be involved with the restaurant, with respect, I wanted to use my time for my own personal benefit (work+side jobs). Although today, I had no problem with helping my family because at the end of the day, they are still my family. BUT it struck me when they started to make me feel like I was taken advantaged and was disrespected.
It was very stressful… as my sister (21F), her boyfriend (21M) and I, were working to serve and handle money as my family sat around and did nothing. I began to feel anger when none of my family members were not helping with the restaurant, in which we had to deal with low food stock, low and lack of quality service from family members, and a lack of drive from them, wanting the restaurant to work. Just the 3 of us out of maybe 20+ were dealing with running a restaurant! I went to the back to complain to my aunt and my mom, telling them that this is their business and that I can not continue to work if they are treating me like this. Telling them that this position is not my to take responsibility but theirs. Instead of acknowledging that could contribute to help work, they shut me down and said that they don’t need to work when they got us. I felt shocked… but continued to work to help my sister and her boyfriend as they were stressed as well.
What got me to blow up and leave was when I was searching for more ingredients and sauces for the food, I saw that all of my family members were just drinking in the back of the restaurant… I said fuck it. Took off my gloves, told my sister and her boyfriend I am leaving, and I walked out. Later on, my sister and her boyfriend also walked out on the family just 30 minutes after I did.
Recognizing that the family does not value me (and my sister and her boyfriend) and the hard work given, I told them I will not help out with the restaurant ever. My mom ended up screaming and yelling at me, saying I disrespected and shamed the family for leaving. Now she is asking me to apologize to the family and wanting me to continue working the weekends.
AITAH for leaving?

2023.06.03 05:24 possum_thief I'm so proud of myself!

I (15F) slept with a my bedroom fan on last night. It may not seem like a big deal but for me it's a big step towards getting better. My grandmother (66-ish) verbally and mentally abused me since I could talk. Some examples of stuff she did; Told me my grandfather died because he didn't pray enough, said that because God was in her life that she aged backwards (okay Benjamin Button), She ridiculed me for reading/watching Harry Potter, Gaslights me by saying stuff like "I guess you don't love me anymore", she disapproved my love for the theater and said it was witchcraft, ect... I only visit her during the summer when it's hot and I spend a week there and because it's hot out there fan is usually on when we go to sleep (my mom and I share a room) Whenever I have my fan on in my bedroom when I try and sleep I sometimes think I'm in her house and I have a panic attack. Last night I decided to push myself and sleep with my fan on and I did it! I did have 3 panic attacks and an urge to go sleep on the couch instead but sleepiness over weighed the panic and I eventually fell asleep! Thank you for reading my (longer than expected) rant!

2023.06.03 05:21 onalesia I wasn’t invited to my friend’s wedding.

I’m a female in my mid twenties. I have this friend who is getting married. We’ve known each other since we were practically babies, but we were closest in our teens. Always hanging out, playing games and making silly videos. We’ve always had the same core friends and at one point I considered him a very close friend. Never ever any kind of attraction between us from either side, trust me.
Over the pandemic we didn’t really interact much but then again I didn’t with most of my friends. We reconnected last year and I got to meet his girlfriend. She was really sweet and I liked her a lot. We hung out and all got along great. Everything seemed perfectly fine and normal. I was really happy for them.
Anyway they got engaged over the winter and I was so happy and excited. But as time went on I got this weird feeling that I wasn’t invited. I’m very hard on myself so I hoped it was just my typical over thinking. I also thought that my best friend wouldn’t get an invitation either because her and him do not get along yet still call each other friends. I was wrong.
One night I look at my phone and see I got an evite sent through text with the ceremony start time and a login number to a zoom room…. and a link to their registry. My best friend got a physical invitation with ceremony and reception addresses. As did the rest of our friends. Everyone was invited to this wedding in perfect except for me. (And not that it entirely matters and perhaps I’m being petty for bringing this up… but I’ve known this friend the longest out of all of them.)
To say my feelings are hurt is beyond an understatement. Maybe it’s stupid — I know it’s their wedding and they have a right to who they do and do not have attend. But I can’t make sense of it. I thought we were fine? Nothing happened between us at all, no falling out or anything like that. So why am I the only one excluded? What did I do?
I feel as if I’ve been told “Hey we don’t want you at our wedding at all but we’ll still take a gift, here’s our registry!” Which makes me feel like absolute garbage. For months now I’ve felt like such trash. Unwanted, disliked trash. And nobody cares at all.
I know it’s their wedding. They set the guest list. It’s about them, not me. But I’ve known him all my life… and I would’ve loved to celebrate his marriage with him and his new wife. I don’t wanna make it about me and that’s why I don’t say anything to them… because I know planning a wedding is stressful. And if I’m so unwanted I’m not going to beg for a seat at the table or plead for a reason why I wasn’t included. I’m also not going to sit in my living room in my pajamas, log into zoom, and watch it all alone. I already feel like a stupid idiot, and I feel like that’s even more degrading.
I’d understand a zoom link if we were still right in the middle of the pandemic. I keep hearing “oh yeah it’s a small wedding” but I also keep hearing about the most random people being invited. It’s not a small wedding. And to send the registry without an invitation to the reception? I know maybe I shouldn’t be so upset about all this but that feels like a giant “screw you” and I think I have a right to feel a certain way about it.
My feelings are hurt, I feel like garbage, nobody I talk to cares about it… and I wish someone would. I wish someone would tell me how crappy this is. I wish any of my friends would say “I wish you were coming” or ANYTHING. Instead everyone constantly brings it up to me. My friend asked me to help her pick out a dress for the wedding…. knowing full well I wasn’t going and that my feelings were hurt about it. My other friend won’t stop talking about it either. And maybe it’s on me because I don’t speak up for myself… but if I were in their shoes and they weren’t invited, I wouldn’t bring it up so I didn’t hurt anyone’s feelings.
Idk. I’m writing this in my notes so I’m not sure if I’ll tag this under weddings or advice or venting… But if anyone has anything helpful to say, I would appreciate it. Anyone gone through the same thing? Any bright side to look at? Because I can’t seem to get over it no matter what I do. I know this is going to sound so, so dramatic and I’m sorry. But all I do is cry about this. This has changed the way I look myself, at a lot of people in my life, my relationships…. all because of one stupid wedding.

2023.06.03 05:18 detho23 Givvum what they really want

I've spent the last few months creating an app which helps with the gift giving process. It's essentially a universal wishlist that you can add items to and your friends can view your list at any time. Often I know what my wife wants for her bday, but I forget which website it came from, which color she wanted, what size she is, etc, and this helps with that.
I'm hoping to get feedback from some early users who are really passionate about this problem and this sub seems like the perfect candidate! One thing I'm working on now is the ability to filter or sort by price. It's something I would find useful and I imagine this group would as well (almost all of the posts here have a budget).
I don't know if I'm allowed to post a link to the site but if anyone is interested I'd be happy to send it in a DM (or if you google "givvum" the site and Chrome extension should come up). It's totally free and I'd love to get some honest feedback!

2023.06.03 05:16 Junior_Cress2828 My experience at NEHS pride today! /positive

So I saw the flyer on instagram ages ago (before it got taken down bc people are ~snowflakes~ lmao) and I went after work today. I was on the bus and walked from River Road towards the event when someone saw my rainbow butterfly wing cape and was like "Man we could use a cape like that down by those protesters haha". So the spiteful little goblin I am, I kept walking straight, and didnt turn into the parking lot towards where Pride was being held. Because I literally cannot help myself. Someone told me they could use me down by the protesters, what was I gonna do, walk away like a rational person? Absolutely not. I'm a Eugenian, I don't do rational.
Low and behold about an hour and a half later I'm still there dancing in front of protesters with my umbrella. I know these protesters. They know me. I think one of them actually said "nice to see you again!" jokingly when I came up. It's always the same bunch, I've seen them at the Saturday Market and at the UO, obviously you're gonna get recognized if you see them a bunch. My motto with them has always been "do no harm but take no shit". I'll never initiate or start anything with them, but if they start something with me I'm ready to finish it. I had my umbrella up and one of them snapped at me about "blocking his freedom of speech, with is illegal!!! >:((((" because my umbrella "accidentally" got in between him and a teenager he was trying to get to talk to him. I know better than the kids do. Don't engage. They're trained to talk to you in a very specific way to make you angry, and so that you flounder your responses so they can humiliate you. They are taught to do these things. Just don't engage. And I pointed to the cops about 50 feet away from us and said "If it's illegal, go talk to them. The cops are here for a reason." And he didn't talk to me again. I'm autistic and my ability to mask my emotions from years of trauma pays off when dealing with protesters. My adrenaline levels can be enough to stop a horse's heart and I'll still be smiling and vibing calmly. The midwest small-town brat in me was ready to get into a fistfight with men twice my size but the rational adult in me was thankfully holding the leash. If you've ever dealt with someone that's persistent in all the things that make you mad (like screaming to teenagers that their parents are pedophiles that are grooming them for bringing them to an event that's giving out colorful flags and button pins) you'll know the feeling.
But in spite of all of that hate. Mostly from the one dude with the speaker the rest of them were kinda just standing around looking bored as hell this was not a lively bunch today- I wanna extend my gratitude to all the students, staff, and community members that pulled up by the curb to talk to me today. They always asked me how I was doing. "Do you need water? Do you have snacks? Are you doing alright here honey?" I would hold up my water bottle and assure them I was staying hydrated. Someone gave me an orange (which was delicious btw) and when my water bottle ran empty, I was told by someone who came out to greet me that they'd hold my place until I got back if I wanted to go find somewhere to refill it. I stayed out there for an hour and a half, from 3 to 4:30. I was only intending on being there for a few minutes, but it was honestly so much fun greeting people and welcoming them in (even with someone screaming the word of someone who only sounded vaugely similar to Jesus in my ear the entire time). A former teacher of mine ran through the parking lot when she saw me to hug me. Practically tackled me and squeezed the life out of me. I had teachers come from inside the event to come and ask me how I was doing. One of them said "Thank you for being the barrier." to me and one of the students who was out there with me with their flag, and it made me really happy. I was one of the first people out there. I know interaction fuels their obsessive ideology but they were harassing people that were coming in and out of the event on foot, calling them out specifically, and telling children that came by that their parents were pedophiles for taking them to a pride event. Someone needed to be a tension breaker and that was my goofy ass for a minute before reinforcements came. People were dancing with their pride flags and singing lady gaga and waving to people as they came in.
And then I headed inside. After an hour and a half I realized "Oh shit I'm gonna miss the whole thing if I'm out here much longer" and I waved goodbye to the protesters. I ate my amazing donated orange outside the gate. Headed on in. It was wonderful. I helped set up during the first NEHS pride last year when I was a senior. So I know just how much it's grown in just ONE YEAR. I watched friends who were still students get access to gender-affirming items (donated binders were a big one. I got my first binder at NEHS pride last year, so to see they still had that available this year? Along with gender-affirming mtf items like bras available for those who may have been mtf? Which was NOT there last year? It was wonderful to see.) I had multiple people stop me and ask if they could pet/take pictures of my pride axolotl (from build a bear, it's pink and has rainbow gills), I had people compliment my outfit, I had people compliment my wings, it was wonderful. There were games and outdoor stuff set up for the kids (which was a bit lacking last year) and there were some small artists there as well. I got a little acrylic pin that has a picture of a peach on it that says "I'm a little fruity!" for 5 bucks and its honestly my favorite thing from today. From the same place I got an "emotional support waterbottle sticker" for 2 bucks that's getting put on my favorite water bottle.
I had a long chat with someone while in line for the spin-the-wheel game. They were clearly nervous, I think they were there by themselves, so I hung out and talked to them while we were in line. I made button pins at two different booths. I collected an ungodly amount of stickers like the little sticker gremlin I am.
And I had. An awesome time. I'm home now. I have a massive headache (probably from being in the sun so long today). But otherwise I'm pretty happy :) I used to be afraid of wearing my pride stuff out in public. People on the bus have given me shifty looks like they want to talk to me in a negative way (but my headphones usually save me from any real confrontation because it's awkward to make someone take off their headphones to tell them you hate their pride flag skirt.) But I walked to the bus stop today, sore and tired, and I felt free.
For as much vocal negativity as there is in this world right now. There's a lot of silent hope, love, and community. I didn't know most of the people who stopped to talk to me today. But they saw me out there and they stopped to make sure I had water. To make sure I had food if I was hungry. To make sure I felt safe during the few times I was up there by myself. Which tbh was not often at all. They didn't know me. And I didn't know them. But we were a part of the same community. And they were there for me. I only hope they believe I was there for them, too. People are kinder than the world has taught us to believe. Don't let the vocal minority prevent you from believing in the good that there is in this world. Stay safe out there, folks! I look forward to seeing yall at Eugene Pride in August! And probably the same protesters too lmao.

2023.06.03 05:15 StormChasingRanger I feel alienated from healthy people and those who have my chronic illness.

I've been growing increasingly frustrated as of late, because no one seems to get the position I'm in. Not those around me who are healthy, and the support I've tried to get in groups from others with my condition.
I got sick three and a half years ago, and since that point I have seen more specialists than I can count. I have tried every available treatment offered to me, looked for underlying conditions. But guess what? My condition is still severe and nothing has put a dent in it. I am still just as bad as I was at the start and am completely housebound.
I don't even get support from the support groups I've tried. Some turned into pseudoscience snake oil salesmen, some try to diagnose me with things after reading or hearing a 1 minutes segment when I didnt ask for that, others can't seem to comprehend that nothing has helped me (because forget that every illness is on a spectrum). I know all of the available treatments, and I mean all of them. I spent the 6 months I was bedridden searching.
My family lives in the delusion that I'll be able to drive again and live this fully independent life when I can't walk into the store for more than 5 minutes, and never unattended. I am a shell of who I was before.
I won my disability case at least, but they had to throw in there "Medical improvement is expected with appropriate treatment" wtf do you think I have been doing the last three years? I didn't apply because I thought I was getting better. I applied because I quite literally do not function and cannot work. Because the treatments have not helped me.
I feel like there is no place for me. Because no matter what, others assume that I'm just not trying hard enough, and that enrages me.

2023.06.03 05:15 Electronic_Wolf_6173 I'm upset about the way my mom handled a situation with my boyfriend

Okay, before I start I want to say that my mom knows I'm dating my boyfriend, I'm 16, he turned 18 today, but we're only a year apart, hes 0'5, I'm 0'6.
I tried to talk to my mom about meeting my boyfriend and his parents before but she shut me down and said that she wants to do it on her own time and that she doesn't want to be rushed, so I didn't say anything more about it.
I only talked to her about him once and yesterday makes twice because me and her don't have a good relationship at all but that's a different story.
My boyfriend walked me to school on Thursday, he's a senior and they had no school that day since all juniors had to take a regents exam, he woke up early thinking he had school but when I told him it was only me he just walked me.
He ended up talking about his birthday, which is today, he said he was going to the beach, then dinner, then he was going to have a bonfire and a party, I didn't know these were his plans, before Thursday I really didn't think of going because before, he said he was just going to hang with his guy friends, but thats not the case anymore I see and he said he would like for me to be there as he wants to spend his birthday with me.
I immediately told him that I don't think I'll be able to go because of my mom, she won't have any money, I don't have any money and I have no ride to get there and back, he understood and I told him that I'll ask anyways because it doesn't hurt to ask.
When I got home I tried to ease into asking her by saying that my boyfriend's birthday was the next day and he wants me to hang out with him, and I told her his plans, before I could even ask if she would be okay with me going, she caught an attitude and started saying that she doesn't even know him, he hasn't had the decency to talk to her or get to know her, she hasn't met his parents, she doesn't have a phone number, she doesn't know where I'll be, I sat and heard her out, I told her that she hasn't met him because she said herself that she didn't want to be rushed into meeting anyone, and I also told her I didn't plan on going to his birthday until he told me he wanted me there.
She started saying that if he wants me to go he has a few hours to meet her demands and said that she has never had a boyfriend her mom didn't know about and she's going to keep it going like that, she then asked why I couldn't call him at that very moment and I said I couldn't because I knew he was pretty busy.
She kept talking about him in a way I didn't like, she said that he needs to man up and speak to her, and if he wants me to go, she wants a phone number, a parent to talk to, an address, she asked for reasonable and understandable things any caring parent would ask for.
But I was upset, not at what she was asking, but the way she went about everything, she flipped on me, cussed me out in the process of making her demands, and made me feel stupid for asking.
I ended up going to my room and crying while texting my boyfriend about what happened and telling him to forget it, he ended up giving me his mom's number to give to my mom, and when she called, she got upset that she didn't get an answer, and when I told her that she might be busy because she has a newborn, she was still upset, instead of being understanding that her call couldn't be answered because of that.
Then my mom got upset because my boyfriend was sending me messages when in her words he could be speaking to her and that he must not be that busy if he's texting me, he sent his number to me to send to my mom and she sent her number to me to send to him saying that she'll be expecting a call, that part got me really upset too because she was making things way harder than it needed to be, she could have simply just called him, then when he did call, my mom had an attitude the entire time, and was trying to make it seem like he was going to try and do something to me while we were out.
Now I was under the impression his parents would be there but he told her that there would be no parental supervision, and it would be him and his guy friends, and I learned that the beach he wanted to go to was pretty far.
She got off of the phone and my boyfriend messaged me saying I was right to just forget it.
My mom came into my room going off on me asking if I really thought she was going to let me go out with no parental supervision and it's just going to be him and his guy friends, my boyfriend later told me his friends girlfriends were going to be there too but we knew it wouldn't make a difference.
She started making it seem like I was gonna try and do stuff with him and his friends or they would try and do stuff with me, she kept implying that I was "expecting" her to let me go which wasn't the case at all, she kept saying that I was just trying to be alone with a boy, she was putting a lot of words in my mouth.
After she left I started crying, I didn't cry about the fact that I couldn't go, yes it was a bummer and I was disappointed as I'm sure any teenager would be, but the reason I was crying was because of the way she handled the situation, I was embarrassed, and I felt incredibly stupid, she made me feel and look stupid for asking.
She came back and asked me if I was really crying about it, and I tried to talk to her about how I feel and say it in a respectful way, I told her I wasn't trying to be disrespectful but I felt like she was being mean about the situation, I told her I understood why I couldn't go but I felt like she was being mean about the way she handled it.
I could barely get the words out because she was yelling at me in the middle of me talking asking me what I thought she was being and after I finished she said she was trying to protect me, while still yelling at me, and that I basically had no right to be upset, she said "I'm trying to protect you and you wanna sit and cry because you can't hang out with a boy, alone, and with his guy friends."
Then she started listing things I should have been crying about, she basically invalidated my feelings, it all made me cry even harder after she said that I was acting like she wasn't that young once and that she doesn't know what happens, she started slamming things around and said that the day before I didn't do my chore at all and all this other stuff, then went into her room and said that she wanted to punch something so bad it wasn't even funny.
Then my sister, who's 13, came into my room and told me she heard everything and was livid, we talked about the situation and I told her how I didn't know that there wasn't going to be any adults there, and that it wasn't even about me wanting to spend time alone with him or do anything inappropriate with him, that was the farthest thing from my mind, I simply wanted to be there for him on his birthday as a supportive and loving girlfriend, but she wasn't trying to understand or see my point of view, I also explained that I wasn't expecting her to let me go, I knew she wouldn't but I asked for my boyfriend in case there was a chance I could have, I didn't want to ask her, and I would have and do understand that she said no, but the way she handled the situation with such anger and what felt like hatred directed towards me and my boyfriend and his family is what made me cry and feel the way I did, my boyfriend even told he was pissed.
My mom then came back into my room and asked what the topic of conversation was and asked if it was her, I tried to ignore her because I was already riled up and just wanted it all to end, but she kept saying "hello name I'm talking to you" to which I replied no, then she said that the last thing I wanted to do was give her an attitude and then closed my door.
My sister got fed up with it and swung the door open and went to talk my mom, she waited until she was done yelling and screaming about me and tried to tell her that I understood why I couldn't go and that I wasn't upset about it and that I didn't know that there wasn't going to be any adults there, but my mom tried to make it seem like I lied about it.
Then at some point she told me that my boyfriend tried to get smart with her, when in reality she asked him if he understood why she couldn't let me go and he said he didn't, then she asked him if he would let his daughter hang out with her boyfriend and his friends alone to which he replied that if she was a teenager then yes and I'm guessing my mom didn't like that answer and he told her that he just doesn't agree with her.
My sister was asking my mom if she could calm down and have a civilized talk with me but my mom was ignoring her and my sister came into my room crying asking if I would go on a walk with her so we could cool down, we got ready and heard my mom screaming and crying on the phone to her mom and they proceeded to talk negatively about me, after about 20 to 30 minutes of sitting on the porch and venting she messaged me and told me to come to her room.
I went into her room and she explained why she acted the way she did, her reasoning was that her blowing up the way she did wasn't even about the situation with me and my boyfriend, it was because she had no money, we had no food, the wifi was cut off, and the gas was/is about to get shut off and she was under a lot of stress and just snapped, she told me that she has to protect me more than she did before because of a situation with my sperm donor (sexual abuse) and that with how many girls get offed by men these days, she wouldn't be able to sleep knowing she let me go and then I never make it home, she apologized and pleaded for me to be able to understand why she said no.
I told her I understand, by that point we were both shedding tears, she told me she knows I need to have fun, but it can't be alone and where she can't get to me or call me or anything, we made up and everything has been fine since then.
But I'm still upset about it all, she really hurt my feelings and for some reason, even though she apologized I can't let it go, I talked about it with someone and they told me I was being petty and had no right to still dwell over the situation, today's my boyfriends birthday and I guess it all just hit harder than when it happened and I need some advice, do I let it go? Was the person right? Do I not have any rights to dwell over it anymore?

2023.06.03 05:14 ThisDayThatDay18 My daughter’s dream.

So my daughter had a bad dream last night…. She said she dreamed that she had two lions on her feet and the car she was in was driving crazy, she said she tried to yell for my mom. My daughter also said that this has happened before when she was at my moms house and one time here, so for sure she had it 2 times, I don’t know if she has had more before these ones. She seemed pretty obviously shaken when she was explaining the dreams to me. What does this mean? Google is giving conflicted answers. TIA!!

2023.06.03 05:13 harlzquinn Lack of ‘Boy’ Childhood?

I just need a place to get this off my chest for a minute, and felt like this is the best place for that.
I’m sure a lot of us can relate to feeling like or struggling with the idea that we didn’t get a ‘boys’ childhood, or a ‘boys’ high school experience, whatever it may be because we didn’t know or didn’t feel safe enough to come out at the time.
I guess my way of trying to make up for that is my current hyperfixation on Spider-Man? He was the first super hero I ever loved as a kid but I didn’t really get to indulge in that. All dresses, Barbies, etc… so now I’m an adult buying Spider-Man stuff, wearing Spider-Man stuff, etc. (I want to get a suit for Halloween, and I’ve been working out more to feel comfortable in that.)
It’s been fun and a confidence boost honestly. I have a Spider-Man flannel I wear at work since I’m at Target, and a lot of coworkers my age and older (and even some guests I’ve helped) really have fun with calling me Spidey and I’ve become the Target Spider-Man at my store.
I know it shouldn’t bother me, but teens being teens continually come in and harass me in whatever ways they manage over it. I’m just exhausted by it. I feel like I should stop with the Spidey stuff but at the same time, why should I?
I don’t have a real end to this, I guess. I just wish I had the childhood I dream of, and want to keep having fun with my Spidey stuff.

2023.06.03 05:12 PubertyGod AITA for having a reaction to my engagement broken off over a FaceTime with no talking prior?

We had met on a app called Bumble and hit it off almost immediately, I will admit things moved along a little fast. We lived roughly a hour from each other and it stayed like that throughout the entire relationship, she would drive down and stay with me every weekend or day off work she got. My alcoholism started to become a issue only a few months into the relationship. Lets jump to the 6 month mark in the relationship, the proposal. I know it was early but like I mentioned before things moved fast. For the first proposal I took a page out of my dads book and used a ring off of a water bottle because I couldn't afford a proper ring at the time. She said yes to that one and I promised to get her a proper ring when I could. That day came when she had a job interview at a jewelry store, she doesn't like diamonds.I got her a beautiful 3 stone emerald ring. I held on it until she came back down the following weekend so I could talk to my family about everything. When the next weekend came I didn't just give her the ring, I did a second proposal with a proper ring this time. I again got a yes and that's where things started to go wrong. A couple months later we were on a FaceTime after she had gotten out of the shower and it was going good at first. After a few minutes of talking she started to word to me some complications in our relationship. She had mentioned that she hadn't been in love with me for at least a month. I wont lie that did hurt but I stayed calm while it was happening and just listened to her talk for how ever long she needed. Which brings us to the present, 2 months after the breakup (all of what I'm going to say in this part all happened the last couple months of us being engaged). I now have found out some more information about what was going on during the last couple months of our relationship. I was aware her and her ex still had communication because his mother loved her and liked to check up on her from time to time. I came to find out she was in love with him the last couple moths of us being engaged. mentally and emotionally she was with him while we were engaged. Nothing physical ever happened (to which I'm told but have no reason to not believe her). I had also found out she had been flirting with him allot and talking bad about me to him behind my back. They are now together and I'm trying to deal with that because we're still trying to make our friendship work (at least I am). I was being harassed and attacked over our relationship. Her social medias, google accounts, and phone was getting hacked into recently by someone who had a opinion on our relationship as well, I've been doing as much as possible to help. Even though I'm trying to help she keeps getting upset and blocking me. My reaction to everything (what I think is understandable) has been trying to express my anger in a way that's not just yelling and arguing. AITA for trying to help and getting upset when it all just comes back bad at me? Did I react badly? AITA?

2023.06.03 05:12 TangerineThing1 My mom won't send my sister and I to school because we can't afford a religious school

There's a public school near us (it's the one we used to go to before we were homeschooled) and it's literally a minute away from our home by car, and a two-minute walk by foot. My mom isn't against sending my sister to school, but she says it has to be a Christian school this time, and refuses public school. Christian elementary schools near us are ridiculously expensive, I'm talking 10-15k a school year for one kid.
My mom won't send me to high school for the same reason when there's a public high school 20 minutes away and I live right next to a bus route. There are also no Christian high schools in our town, and I'd have to go on the bus for like 1-2 hours, and the high school is also a private one on top of that, and my mom said it's about 20k a kid, which is obviously too much.
My mom refuses to let my sister go back to the public school we used to go to because she says she can give her a better education at home (then she doesn't give her any schoolwork and I teach my sister). My sister begs my mom because she wants friends, and my mom just says "you go to school to learn, not to socialize," and "Public school kids don't socialize as much as you think they do" and all that crap.
I'm told socialization isn't as important for me since I'm a teenager and I can live without it. My mom says I need to focus on online school and I don't have time for friends, which is untrue because online school doesn't last that long for me.
My parents could care less and they make it sound like homeschooling was the best option for us, when it destroyed both of us mentally and made us isolated. My parents are 100% aware of what they're doing with the isolation, but they don't care.

2023.06.03 05:12 Zerenza This Game has a lot of Potential.

Coming from League of Legends this game, and it's community, are a breath of fresh air truthfully. The community is far less toxic, though it does exist and the game in general feels like its taken a lot of notes from previous Moba's, implementing them early in development to circumvent issues they'd create later on. Such as almost every item having a Cheaper item that builds into it with a similar effect, this is instrumental in allowing players to have counterplay against specific matchups/character's when they need to.
BUT There are a few core issue's I've noticed as a casual player.
Game Length
Game's are very, very long, in my experience, on average. Most of the game's I've played are 40m to 1 hour long. That wouldn't be a problem if they were close game's but most often, they're DEFINITELY not. I had a game just yesterday with a gold difference of over 20k in 30 minutes, last for nearly an hour. That, just, can't be the case. You could chock this up to player's not knowing how to end game's properly but the problem is, they do. Get Orb Prime, Get your Fangtooths, take Tower's, group up around objectives. I see them doing it but the effects of it are non-existant and often times you can't end off an early Orb, despite having a large enough kill/gold lead that you SHOULD end because of something I'll go over next.
Catchup Mechanics
As far as I am aware, there are 0 catchup mechanics in this game, if you end up behind, you'll stay behind until a miracle happens. Die once and often time's the enemy laner maintains a level advantage for the entire game, even if you get a kill or two back. Getting a large number of kills and dying from over confidence, as far as I know, doesn't reward your killer any form of extra gold, when it should because, last game I had a 10/0 Feng Mao and killing him gave basically nothing yet it takes my whole team to take him on.
This can result in game's that are lost early on from advantages as listed above, feeling REALLY REALLY disheartening and unfun. There's no way to catchup from a large advantage but there's also not a really good way for the enemy with the massive advantage to end the game, so often time's, you end up sitting in a lost game for 20+ Extra minutes. Yes, there is a Surrender Vote, but, let's be honest. No one ever likes to surrender, I want to lose, like, actually LOSE not admit defeat. I can't do that, instead, I sit in a lost game forever.
Character and Class Balancing
I have several problems with a few classes. Namely, it doesn't matter what Balance Patch or Balancing takes place, Bruiser's(IE: Grux, Khaimera ect.) always feel overtuned. I'm assuming this is related to Item's and the nature of the character's being a less...skill intensive. Nonetheless, it's frustrating to continually lose over and over again to what feels like something you don't have a good counter for. They can jump on me in a heart beat, slow me, if I flash they always do and I can't avoid most of their damage so I'm nearly guarenteed dead, this is especially problematic when your Jungling and a Bruiser invades you. Yes, bruiser do need to be powerful 1v1 character's BUT there's no way to come back from it because of the lack of catchup mechanics.
Now for Assassins. I'm not sure what the consensus is on Assassins in this game but from what I've seen, they are the worst example of "Feast or Famine" in this game. That means getting ahead is really really rewarding but going even, is the absolute worst. The other problem is that, picking an assassin doesn't necessarily mean, even if you land everything, that you'll kill your target UNLESS your really far ahead. This is problematic because of a problem with Movement Speed in this game, every character, regardless of class, has the same movement speed as far as i am aware. At the very least, most Carries and Mages share their Movement Speed with Assassins. This. Is. So. Frustrating.
Often times when you catch a Carry or Mage out as an assassin, close distance with your dash and deal significant damage, you can't finish them off and truly punish them for Overextending/Being caught out. Because they outrun you. They just need to be BARELY out of your Auto Attack range to outrun you effectively and, more frequently, they'll Kite you and kill you because your dashes have cooldowns or they'll CC and turn on you. This, shouldn't be the case. There is 0 way for an assassin to close distance without their Dash or Blink(that every character has.), and this is problematic because it means that punishing Carries and Mage's for overextending as the class that's BUILT to do that, isn't reliable. So what do assassins do? They build Bruiser instead, which comes with it's own slew of issues.
There are Items assassins can build BUT, being forced to get those items because the Base mechanics of the game prevent you from doing what your class is intended to do, feels really really bad.
There are a few more Minor issues I have with Carries and Mages but, tbh, if Assassins were a better choice to pick and couldn't get outran, I think those minor issues would be resolved. Frequently a fed Carry or Mage can steamroll a game(But not end it until 40 minutes in) and make the game pretty unwinnable. In other MOBA's, an Assassins job in this case is to be the Counter to Hyper Carries, but, in this game, they either aren't picked or are building Bruiser because they can't do their job correctly.
I understand that some of these might be nitpicky or other people might see them as wrong, but these are things that I've found to be ruining the fun for me as someone who's played a MOBA for over 7 year's. I really like the game, the design, the character's are cool conceptually. I really want it to be great but I feel as though these above points are really holding it back.

2023.06.03 05:12 Machohoncho 2023 w/ electric issues

I have a 2023 tundra limited trd off road with 2100 miles. I’ve had it for almost a month. Haven’t even made my first payment on it!
The first two weeks were fine. These last two weeks have been very frustrating. I’ve been in for service 6 times for electric issues.
I’ve had several issues with my infotainment system. Turning on and off. Switching between sources by itself. Disconnecting and reconnecting to phones randomly.
they said it was a software issue and an update would be released soon.
No big deal, right?
Well then it started doing it again except this time, I got a notification that my headlights malfunctioned and to take it to the dealer.
My headlights, radio, and my digital gauge screen were flickering on and off.
They said my headlight shorted out and was affecting all those systems.
I took it to have it replaced, they told me my problem should be solved.
But once again, my head unit started messing up again. This time, playing music, skipping ahead 10 seconds, rewinding 25 seconds. Skipping ahead a minute, etc.
Skipping songs, playing pausing, restarting it. Nothing fixed it.
I was able to get it to the dealer while still doing it, they said they’ve never seen it before.
Has anyone else had any crazy electronic issues like this and if so, was it able to be resolved or did it lead to worse issues later on?
