2023.06.08 06:21 HolyJolieXO Unpopular opinion: Vanessa ain’t so bad

She’s grown a lot over the show. Maybe some will call her fake… but some people process emotions differently and have different responses. I think her at the reunion had come further than most of the other girls on the show in terms of self actualization
Her and Xander despite not being good for each other also are the only two with realistic perspectives on their relationship and someone most grounded in reality from this.
I also think it’s admirable that she’s very open to criticism and genuinely I think her delusion isn’t rated in arrogance just ignorance. She’s willing and open to grow, change, and admit her faults (even if there’s many)
Her vulnerability I think was very admirable and she communicated her feelings very eloquently with words despite them not having the most emotion behind them all the time. Her words were too specific to be fake, they were carefully thought about - which is what you do when you actually care about someone.
Is she well rounded? No but she’s come a long way. Let’s get off the hate train she’s growing which is more than I can say for most of them. Maybe it’s just me thought I always Stan the bullied girls it’s my protective instinct since Britney circa 2007 🤷‍♀️. Leave Vanessa alone !!!!!

2023.06.08 06:20 excitedtosay I cannot stop blaming myself for possibly getting a cat euthanized multiple years ago

It’s been awhile and I can’t forget it and I feel so guilty and I have NO proof but just a gut feeling.
My husband found a kitten at his job that was super dangerous (heavy equipment) so I picked her up and brought her to my apartment. I already had two cats so wouldn’t be allowed another, but figured I could keep her long enough to find her a home myself. However she would NOT STOP SCREAMING at the top of her lungs and my neighbors could hear. I loved her to death, she was so sweet, but I couldn’t afford any fees or fines at all and was 10 minutes from needing to leave for work. I searched up the nearest animal shelter and headed there.
When I arrived I couldn’t walk in but they had a number on the door to call for drop offs (this was during peak Covid). I called and they said they couldn’t take her as they were full, and I asked what I should do because I did to go to work and had no way to keep her contained there. They didn’t give me any options, just sighed and gave me intake paperwork which I filled out and handed over with the kitten.
My stomach dropped when they just took her with a straight face, said nothing, and walked away. I felt like I did something wrong.
I checked their site for her daily for weeks after with no luck and ever since have struggled thinking about the kitten that was so needy and so loving possibly getting put down because I couldn’t help her enough. She was just a baby, big enough to climb on me and love on me but too young to have her life taken. I’m literally sobbing writing this. I feel awful.

2023.06.08 06:20 Nlo19 Seeing an orthodontist in hopes of jaw surgery referral next week

Seeing an orthodontist in hopes of jaw surgery referral next week
I’m seeing an orthodontist next week to talk to him about my jaw, weak chin, breathing issues. It’s the same orthodontist I had braces through from 16-17. My entire life I haven’t been able to breathe through my nose really and I’ve always had round chubby cheeks even now I’m the lowest weight and body fat I’ve ever been in my adult life. I never feel adequately rested even after sleeping 8-10 hours a night I’m constantly exhausted every single morning. I can’t sleep on my back because I get exactly zero air through my nose so I have to sleep on my stomach or side. I’ve been a mouth breather my entire life and my cardio is terrible despite being an athlete all through high school and some years in college. Am I a candidate? I’m thinking a double jaw surgery with genioplasty? What else should I go over with the orthodontist?

To get straight to the point, I (43m) was eating my (43m) third box of Kraft mac n' cheese (food) and watching Family Guy (show) clips on my (43m) Google Pixel 7 (jailbroken) when my (43m) mom (56f) came down into the basement to tell me (43m) to get a job or I (43m) was gonna get kicked out so I (43m) obviously said no then she (56f) took my phone and said I (43m) couldn't get it (Google Pixel 7) back until I (43m) applied for a job so naturally I (43m) blew her (56f) fucking brains out with a shotgun (20 gauge, 3/4" slugs) and screamed laughed "MEHEHEHEHEH" like peter does in Family guy,. Then I shit (didn't wipe) onto her face, or rather, what was left of it, then dropped another round into that fucking bitch's dumb face. Now, there's blood and fecal matter ALL OVER MY FUCKING WALLS (I'm the sole heir to her will because I worked my ass off begging daily for nine years). Reddit, AITA?
TL;DR, my mother is a fucking stupid cunt

2023.06.08 06:15 SmaharbaShe Milk coming out when I squeeze at 9 weeks 2 day (more info and history in post)

I had a baby in 2021 and only breastfed for 7 months. Right before I got pregnant I was inducing lactation again just to get bigger breasts, was slow and not much came out maybe couple teaspoon.
Throughout this pregnancy I haven’t been able to get milk out, my breasts were full and only got few drops. Today basically in an instant I was able to squeeze significant amount of milk, much more than when self inducing lactation. This worries me, what if baby is gone and now the milk is coming out. My breasts aren’t as full and sensitive as other weeks.
I lactated early in my first successful pregnancy at like 12 weeks which concerned me.
I also notice today the round ligament pain is very mild and not really there.
Has anyone had experience with this? Milk coming out so early?

2023.06.08 06:15 Big-Research-2875 PHYLUM (phylum) Porifera

PHYLUM (phylum) Porifera

The phylum Porifera or sponges, ar primarily marine animals consisting of loosely organized Cells. The some 9 thousand species of sponges vary in size from but a centimetre to a mass that will quite fill your arms.

Characteristics of the phylum Porifera include:

  1. Asymmetrical or centrosymmetric
  2. 3 cell types: pinacocytes, mesoderm cells, and choanocytes
  3. Central cavity, or a series of branching chambers, through that water circulates throughout filter feeding
  4. No tissues or organs
PHYLUM (phylum) Porifera


In spite of their relative simplicity, sponges ar quite colonies of freelance cells. As all told animals, sponge cells ar specialised for explicit functions. This organization is commonly stated as division of labor. Thin, flat cells, referred to as pinacocytes, line the outer surface of a sponge.
Pinacocytes is also gently contracted, and their contraction might amendment the form of some sponges. in a very variety of sponges, some pinacocytes ar specialised into rounded, contracted porocytes, which might regulate water circulation.

2023.06.08 06:13 egirlpiss why did my left ovary look like a pomegranate compared to my right one?

i just had an abdominal+transvaginal ultrasound done today to check on my cysts and iud placement. i’ve been experiencing extreme pain since having the mirena placed and they just wanted to make sure it wasn’t my cysts rupturing and giving me problems or whatever
anyway, the tech was nice. she was very kind, talked to me, made jokes while examining my right ovary. it was easy and she finished looking at it pretty fast. it just kinda looked like a circle to me? she said “oh yeah look for the chocolate chip cookie. thats how your ovary’s meant to look”
.. then we moved to my left ovary. it was sensitive and tender, hurt way more than my right one did. she told me it was more difficult to look at cuz it was behind my uterus? anyway, i was looking at the imaging and made a joke about how it looked like a luffah (cuz it had holes in it) and couldn’t help but feel like it looked like a face of a ghost (like a drawn one, with the rounded mouth and droopy eyes). she didn’t make as many jokes about it and was kinda quiet when i made these comments about it. which made me extremely nervous afterwards… she spent most of the transvag part looking at that ovary and taking photos of it
anyway, besides that, i feel like the ultrasound went okay. my question is does anyone have any experience with this? i did googling (bad choice i know) and find similarities in ultrasounds of polycystic ovaries and also just “normal” ovaries with the follicles being shown. either way i’m extremely anxious about waiting for my ob to get back to me with the results):
i was told to call in two wks if they didn’t get back to me within a few days. so surely its nothin.. too bad? i don’t know. just needing some advice and reassurance😭😭😭 i’m so scared

2023.06.08 06:12 Strict_Pay8646 Advice on fellow cheating player

Try to keep this short, fellow player in the party is rocking a multiclass genie warlock/clockwork sorcerer. We are all lvl 9 and I don’t know his distribution of levels because I don’t care to look at his character sheet. We will call this person Spam. In our last session, Spam casts Eldritch Blast (EB) as his action which he then twinned spell with meta magic. He also then Quickened EB for his bonus action while also twinning it again. So he rolled 8 attacks which all hit for lots of damage of course. Next round he does the same thing again. If all of the above was legal (which I know it doesn’t RAW and RAI) that would mean he spent 8 sorcery points to do all that. He texted me afterwards saying how awesome it was. I asked how many sorc points he had left because I knew he shouldn’t be able to do that again just based on sorcery points. He tells me he still has 6 left.
Now that the complaining/background is out of the way. My simple question is whether I should talk to the DM about the cheating, ignore it, or talk with other player directly.
I can provide follow up details on the comments of clarification is needed.

TSMC ускорила разработку 2-нм техпроцесса — первые чипы будут готовы в этом году
Тайваньский контрактный производитель микросхем TSMC ускорил разработку 2-нм технологического процесса из-за высокого потенциального спроса на эту продукцию со стороны NVIDIA и Apple, сообщает тайваньское издание Economic Daily. Известно, что 2-нм массовое производство запланировано на 2025 год. Однако первые партии таких чипов будут произведены уже в этом году, а в следующем — налажено мелкосерийное производство.
Инженеров и вспомогательный персонал уже отправили на научно-исследовательский завод Zhuke в городе Баошань для подготовки к пробному производству 2-нм процессоров. Согласно источнику, мелкосерийная производственная линия нацелена на выпуск 1000 пластин в этом году, пробное производство запланировано на 2024 год, а массовое производство — на 2025 год. Для массового производства 2-нм микросхем компания расширит мощности на своей фабрике в Баошани, а также задействует новый завод в Тайчжуне на западе Тайваня.
Для TSMC важно как можно раньше начать работу со своим 2-нм семейством. Это будет первое поколение процессоров компании, использующее новую архитектуру транзисторов Gate-all-round (GAA), поэтому могут возникнуть непредвиденные препятствия.
Однако пока дела компании складываются хорошо. Во-первых, конкуренция среди клиентов стала более интенсивной, чем когда-либо, что может говорить о высоком уровне инвестиций в разработку и развитие индивидуальных решений.
Во-вторых, TSMC применяет ИИ к своему производственному процессу для повышения эффективности, и ожидается, что этот шаг сэкономит энергию и тем самым сократит выбросы углерода. Компания использует платформу AutoDMP от NVIDIA с искусственным интеллектом, которая позволяет ускорить процессы оптимизации по проектированию кристаллов в 30 раз в сравнении с предыдущими методами и технологиями. Эта платформа от NVIDIA сократит затраты на производство и улучшит производительность и энергоэффективность чипов.

2023.06.08 06:09 misprint Hoping this will motivate someone…

You know that feeling that all long term smokers have when they wonder if they’ve gone too far and have done irreversible damage. That nagging feeling and fear of cancer. Well all my worst fears came true.
At the age of 37, I was diagnosed with stage 4 oral cancer. I smoked for 20 years. Cigarettes, weed, shisha, cigars, I loved it all. I was never a pack a day smoker. On average I clocked in at 7 a day.
In January I needed a segmental mandibulectomy. What’s that you ask? Oh just a quick 11 hour surgery where they removed 6 inches of my lower jaw (teeth gums and bone) where the cancer was. Then they removed a part of my scapula and lat muscle for the facial reconstruction.
I also just finished 30 rounds of radiation to my face which was harder than the surgery in its own way.
It all fucking sucks. Fun fact, the two main causes of oral cancer are smoking and then drinking. But if you do both together it magnifies everything.
Anyway, I haven’t had a smoke or a drink in 6 months and I’m obviously never going back.
But if you’re struggling to quit, believe me, Cancer is harder. Watching your family from a hospital bed is harder. Getting slowly cooked by radiation is harder.
I never thought I would get sick in my 30’s, but I did.
The warning signs on the packs don’t mean anything to smokers. I’m hoping my fucked up story will scare someone here to quit for good.
Good luck.

2023.06.08 06:07 derangedmacaque Second round botox helped a LOT & weird staring frozen spells where I would get stuck and feel like I couldn’t move and stare into space & what felt like major depression improved after this botox round. I didn’t think they were a migraine symptom b/they went away post botox. Seeing neuro in morning

Gosh, migraines are SO weird. Dx migraine 12/21, and complex hemiplegic migraine 12/22. All post TBI from MVA in 11/20. So I thought I was having a relapse of my depression and PTSD and barely made it to my second round of botox. I had a panic attack and cried at the dang appointment. Totally spaced getting zinc for it dang it. Gotta prep that before this wears off. But anyway, I was having new crazy staring fits where I felt like I could barely move and would get stuck. And severe anxiety and depression. Thought it was psychological. Then I got this second round botox for migraine,and ten days later I feel SO much better. Thank you to Reddit because I got support to go the the second round which involved driving 75 miles each way on Friday holiday afternoon.

2023.06.08 06:04 sera27272 "I'm ready to fight everyone"- Dex

Tomorrow (9th), the 13th episode of the wave original 'Blood Game Season 2' (directed by Hyun Jeong-wan, will be released. The five semi-finalists Hong Jin-ho, Seo Chul-gu, Dex, Shin Hyun-ji, and Lee Jin-hyung enter into a last competition to be the last one standing.
In the meantime, the 14 players gathered at the Mansion of Blood had a fierce survival battle going back and forth between the wild and the Mansion. In particular, in the Money Challenge, which covers the dropouts, deception and betrayal as well as brains and physicality were rampant, and a tight fight broke out every round.
Finally, with only the semi-finals and finals remaining, focused on who will be the last one. Among the remaining five remaining players, Hong Jin-ho, Seo Chul-gu, Dex, Shin Hyun-ji, and Lee Jin-hyung, the final four players to advance to the finals will be selected through a semi-final game, after which the final winner will be determined in a one-on-one tournament.
Ahead of the big match between the strongest players in survival, the remaining players in the mansion are doing their best to survive, bringing out all of their hidden fighting spirit. Shin Hyun-ji, who had maintained a strong union as a wild team, revealed his hidden ambitions, saying, "Jin-ho brother, exit brother, Dex brother. I'm not interested anymore." Dex also said, “My goal is only 1st place now. I am ready to fight everyone,” foreshadowing a more bloody competition.
Not only the competitive spirit of players, but also the difficulty of the game will be further upgraded. Seo Chul-gu, who dominated the game with his quick brain rotation, was embarrassed by saying, “The difficulty level has increased,” while Game Master Hong Jin-ho said, “I never thought I would lose. I thought I would always win,” he said. Unlike the first time when he was confident, after entering the game, he said, “The game is not over,” and was embarrassed. Indeed, in a reversal where the outcome is unpredictable, questions are rising about whose hand the goddess of victory will raise.
On 16th, a behind-the-scenes episode will be released to appease the regret of the end of the survival. It is to be able to enjoy undisclosed videos that contain the charms of players' twists and turns. As a result, 'Game of Blood 2', which will be filled with unstoppable fun until the end, is expected more.
Players' final struggle to occupy the top of the pyramid can be seen in the 13th episode of Wave's original 'Blood Game Season 2', which will be released at 11 am on the 9th.

2023.06.08 06:03 assthrow_away AITA for asking if someone in my car is wearing a seatbelt and then being upset no one else cared?

So my SO’s sister is in town and we decided to take a little day trip to the nearest big city, about a 2hr drive. I have quite a bit of anxiety when it comes to seatbelt use in the car…for obvious reasons…at least to me. My SIL was in the very back because she has an 8 month old she needed to be available for. Our 4 and 2 year olds were also in the car. I was driving and part-way into the drive realized when looking in the rearview that SIL did not have a seatbelt on. I have a history of being called “rude” and taken wrongly, especially by SO’s family (there is a good chance I am on the spectrum), so I didn’t want to say anything directly to her and instead simply asked my SO “does she have her seatbelt on?”. Her response was “I think, off and on”. I felt completely dismissed already at this point especially since my SO is aware of how I feel about these things. About 5 minutes later I asked again and the response this time was “you just can’t stop focusing on it can you?” And finally another 5 minutes later she finally asked her if the seatbelt was working to hint at putting it on. I was pretty hurt at this point by my SO and later on asked for an apology for dismissing my feelings and lying that she had it on at some points. All my SO heard was me calling them a liar and thus an apology would not be given bc “they didn’t lie and how dare I accuse them of that”. I felt pretty shut down the rest of the day and being someone who doesn’t hide my feelings well, I was by the end of the day being told I am so rude and shitty. Every-time I bring it up now my SO just claims I was so out of line and trying to be controlling of her and my SIL. They won’t see my side at all and just say I don’t care about anyone but myself and it just becomes a fight every-time I ask for some sort of acknowledgment of my feelings and it instead turns into how I acted shitty the rest of the day. AITA??

2023.06.08 06:03 theloons Carnival of Carnage Survivor

Hi all!
This is the main post for Carnival of Carnage Survivor, where we will take a deep dive into the album, track by track, and decide as a community which track remains supreme.
Current Round:
Round 2
How It Works:
Each round, you'll vote for your least favorite song from those remaining on the album. The song with the most votes will be eliminated. In the case of a tie, we will have a run-off, and if the run-off also results in a tie, both songs will be eliminated. This will continue until we're left with one song, which will be declared the winner. We'll then move on to the next album (Beverly Kills 50187).
New rounds will start between 9-10 PM EDT and run until 9 PM EDT the following day. After each round closes, I'll aggregate the results, start the next round, and update this master post accordingly.

2023.06.08 06:03 fosxei The U.S. Credit Card game (for students) - What, Why, and How

Every so often I see a post here asking about what bank or what credit card to get. In my own experience as well, many students are woefully uninformed on credit cards and how to optimize them. As such, I thought I would write a small guide as to what I think UM students should do when deciding whether or not to play the U.S. Credit Card Game.
Disclaimer: Targeted to students with SSNs. It also places a heavy focus on being able to travel while in university, not necessarily long-term strategies for credit card usage
What is the U.S. Credit Card Game?
Put simply, it is the optimization of Credit Cards (CCs). This can take a variety of forms, including getting credit cards for their sign-up bonuses (SUBs), garnering cash-back (in terms of cash and points) properly, what to do after getting a SUB, how to use the points properly, and much more.
Being in the U.S. is a tremendous advantage when it comes to CCs, as Americans get some of the best CC offerings in the world, both in terms of SUBs and cash-back.
Why should I play?
Well, maybe you shouldn't. If you aren't confident in your ability to manage your money and expenditures, then you are better off following the advice of someone like Dave Ramsey. CC debt can produce decade-long consequences, so stop here and give yourself an honest self-evaluation.
That being said, if you are financially responsible, then the world awaits you. For students, traveling during breaks is a time to make core memories. However, traveling is expensive. In fact, for international travel, airfare is likely the most expensive part of your journey.
So why pay it at all?
I've been to Europe, Asia, and Oceania, all without paying a single dime of the airfare. The only thing I paid was a meager 50-80 dollars for a fuel surcharge.
The secret? Credit cards. This is the name of the game.
At our stage in life, we aren't likely to get so much out of the cash-back cards just yet (not enough consistent spend). However, there are a multitude of CCs that you can get with a very thin credit history that will enable you to fly nearly expense free. You will unlock the previously impossible trips that you could not take with your friends. Experiences that you could only have after establishing a consistent income can be had right now, with the best friends of your life.
Seriously, you will not regret it.
How to play?
One of the greatest difficulties of the game is how to start. There are numerous tricks, restrictions, and guidelines to follow. I will link several resources below that you can read if you are curious. However, the most important one for us will be Chase Bank's 5/24 rule. 5/24 is a rule employed by Chase which will render an automatic denial if you have 5 or more new CCs in the last 24 months. What this means is, as a general rule, get your Chase cards early.
Disclaimer: If your parents are knowledgeable, they might have added you as an authorized user (AU) on their credit cards. So long as they have a good score and history, a lot of that can be imparted to you. For example, I have a friend who has had credit cards for a short time. His credit score is near 800, and his "credit history" is longer than his lifespan. If this is you, some of these rules may not apply.
Step 1: Make a Chase Checking account. They often have cash bonuses for this, so take advantage of that as well.
Step 2: Move your money there, and (if you have a job, you probably should at least part time) redirect your direct deposits to that account. Do not leave the balance low, as this can adversely affect you later on.
Your first card will be your worst one. There is no way about it. You will almost certainly be denied for a credit card at any of the major issuers (other than student/beginner cards that are worse than the ones I am about to list). That being said, the options aren't the worst. I would recommend the BoA Customized Cash Rewards Credit Card or Discover it cards. Look over these yourself, and choose. They both offer pretty decent cash-back options. They will give you cash-back, in terms of statement credit, not bank points.
One thing to keep in mind is that when you apply for a credit card, it will most often result in hard pull on you credit score, which credit issuers often do not like to see too many of. Each issuer has different rules and standards (Chase can be picky, AMEX generally doesn't care, etc). So don't just apply without considering your choices and likelihood of being approved.
Whichever card you get, put some spend on it (try for 10-30% utilization of your credit line, or a bit lower). ALWAYS PAY YOUR STATEMENTS IN FULL ON TIME. This is non-negotiable. Do not use your CC like free money. Treat it like a debit card, and only spend as much as you have.
As a general guideline, you can start getting new (and much better) cards about 6-9 months after your first card. Some of you may be fortunate enough to receive targeted offers even before then. You can also check some preapprovals from various credit issuers. Space out your applications.
In respect to the 5/24 rule, I would consider trying for a Chase Sapphire Preferred(CSP) as your second card. The CSP usually offers a robust SUB, and is an all-around great card. It has a $95 dollar annual fee (relatively low for a card of its stature). However, it may be a hard task with a short credit history. This can be helped quite a bit if you have a relationship with them (remember the checking account we established?). If you don't have a relationship with them, or your credit score is lower than ~715, or you have some other circumstance, I would look into the Chase Freedom Flex(CFF) or the Chase Freedom Unlimited(CFU). The SUBs for these other two are about 1/4-1/3 of the CSP, but they come with no annual fee. IMO, these are the most important CCS to begin with because they give you access to the Chase point system, Ultimate Rewards (UR). The SUBs are typically 25,000 and 90,000 UR points for the CFU/CFF and CSP respectively. They are worth about 1.6 cents/point, which gives you a value 400 USD for the CFU/CFF, and 1440 USD for the CSP. And that is just from the SUBs, you will accrue more from the cash-back value (which are given in points). These can give incredible value in travel, and much more. I will explain this more later. TRY NOT TO USE THE UR POINTS BEFORE YOU HAVE THE CSP OR CSR, AS THEIR VALUE IS LESS.
After you are established in the Chase ecosystem, for our purposes, as students with low, inconsistent expenditures, we will be looking for the highest SUB cards (within reason). If you for whatever reason spend a lot of money, then you have more options as well, but this guide may not be for you in the first place. There is a catch with most of the CCs that offer high SUBs. That is that they require you to spend x amount of dollars within a certain timeframe. Some of these spend requirements are very manageable (2000 USD in 6 months), and some are harder (5000 USD in 3 months). Do not stretch yourself thin here. You can do something known as manufactured spend (MS) to help reach that requirement, but I would not recommend it, as we are somewhat tarnishing our original goal with that. If you are in desperate need to reach your spend requiremnt, look into gift cards (they often have discounts, so you get the cash back and the gift card for extra value), although some credit cards have restrictions on this. You can also often pay your rent with a CC, although the fees for that vary. Do the math, and adjudicate whether or not it is worth it.
So, what cards should you be looking for?
In general, cards that give you bank points (Citi's Thank You Points (TYP), Chase's Ultimate Rewards (UR), AMEX's Membership Rewards (MR), etc). These offer the most flexibility. Some good cards in this category are any of AMEX's Platinum, Gold, and Green cards. They give out very very high SUBs, but their annual fees can get high, so do the math and make a decision. I would recommend against the Chase Sapphire Reserve since it probably isn't worth for students, the SUB is not that great, and the annual fee is very high. I would also recommend looking at cobranded airline cards. The AMEX Delta Gold, for example, recently dished out 75,000 SkyMiles after 2000 USD was spent in 6 months. Barclays AAdvantage Aviator Red is giving out 70,000 American Airlines miles after you pay the annual fee (99 USD) and make one purchase within 90 days. 70,000 AA miles gets you roundtrip to anywhere in the world. United Airlines recently devalued their points quite heavily, so I would avoid any of their cobranded cards for the time being. That being said, if their points get better, a 0 annual fee card called the United Explorer exists, and recently, the 70,000 miles SUB you could get would get you just about anywhere as well. SkyMiles, while hit or miss, can have so very amazing flash sales (most recently, they had a roundtrip flight to Auckland from just about anywhere in the US for 42,500 SkyMiles).
In general, I would recommend avoiding all store cobranded cards and exclusively cash-back cards until you have enough income and expenditures that it is worthwhile. For now, focus on getting the best SUBs so you can maximzie your experiences in college.
The general idea is for cards with annual fees, downgrade them after 1 year of holding it. If a downgrade option doesn't exist, then bite the bullet and enjoy what you got out of it, call for a potential retention offer, or cancel it. I would recommend trying not to cancel too many cards, as it can have adverse impacts on your credit in the future, and if done too often, can cause credit issuers to blacklist you. If the annual fee is too high for you to manage, and there is no downgrade available, then reconsider getting the card.
Let me give an example. Lets say you get the AMEX Gold, AMEX Delta Gold, CSP, CFF, United Explorer, and the Aviator Red. If you move your MR points to Delta and the UR points to United, that gives you ~165,000 SkyMiles, ~180,000 United miles, and ~70,000 American Airline miles. The SkyMiles are worth about two roundtrips to Asia or Europe, the United Miles are worth about two round trips to Asia or Europe, and the American miles are worth about one round trip to Asia or Europe. That is 5 international trips. The combined first year annual fee across all of these cards is just $350, and all except the AMEX Gold and Aviator Red (sometimes can be downgraded) can be downgraded to a $0 annual fee card. 5 international trips, for 450 dollars before your fuel charges. That value is incredible. And this is all before you get the extra points from any expenditures you may be having. The combined spend across all these cards to get the SUBs is (in order from the original listing) 4000 + 2000 + 4000 + 500 + 3000 + 0. That is just 13,500 USD that you need to spend in order to get the SUBs. Assume you spread this across 3 years, that is just 4,500 USD a year. I am pretty sure most people live on more than 4,500 a year. Thats some (most?) people's annual groccery bill! Assuming your freshmen year you are building your credit, you could take an international trip every summer and then take two trips your senior year. Imagine traveling the world with your friends while in university, for much cheaper than if you had to pay cash.
That's about all I have to say. I have done extensive research on this topic, and I have employed it myself. I just hope everyone else can enjoy the perks as well.

Get your first credit card the moment you turn 18. Build your credit responsibly. Use it like a debit card. Pay in full, every month. Keep a spreadsheet. Enjoy as banks pay for your travels.
There are many nuances and rules, but I tried to keep it simple enough and digestible for the average person.
Here are the two most important resources in learning about the U.S. Credit Card Game:
Doctor of Credit and US Credit Card Guide
There are several other travel-focused blogs that exist, so follow them so you can always get the best value out of your points. Often there are transfer bonuses from bank points to miles, and so you can getup to 50% more value than I stated above, depending on the offering.
