2023.06.03 06:11 DeathReaper130 Dallas Wings Game #5 Analysis

In this post as the title states, I'll be recapping and giving my analysis on what I noticed with the Dallas Wing's 4th game today which was against the Washington Mystics. Sorry about the post being a little late but I had to take a break from my computer after watching how that last minute of the game unfolded.

Part #1 - Offense:
Satou Sabally: Once again, she's the MVP of the team in today's game. She ended the game with a double double in 18 points and 14 rebounds. She was also close to a triple double as she had 7 assists in the game. Sabally was amazing on the offensive end today. Not only did she tie Arike for a team high 18 points but she also led the team with 7 assists. She was literally doing everyone on the floor today and had some crucial buckets to extend the Wings' lead at certain moments of the game. There's nothing really much more that I can say about her as I thought she had close to a perfect game. If she hit that corner three for the game winner, that would have been icing on the cake but it was a good try nevertheless. She'd be the person that I want shooting that final shot in a do or die situation like that anyways.

Arike Ogunbowale: As stated above, Arike tied Sabally for a team high 18 points. The biggest thing that I like about Arike this game however was her 6 assists. She seemed to take a bit more time on offensive possessions this game which was a good thing. There were moments where I thought Arike would have taken the shot considering that's what she'd normally do but she held back, analyzed the situation, and make the right decision whether it was to shoot the ball or pass it away. She got her teammates involved today and did a little bit less of her usual hero ball type of game. There were still moments where she tried to chuck shots up but at this point, I don't think that's ever going to change for the Wings and they just have to play around Arike like that. The one thing I wished Arike did however this game was to take less threes. For the most part of the game, the game was going back and forth with the Wings leading for most of the part only by a few. Despite this, Arike continued to chuck up threes at certain moments for no reason. Especially when your team has the lead by a few, the best thing to do is to slow the ball down and analyze where the best option to score was. In these situations however, Arike sometimes failed to do this and as a result gave over free possessions to the Mystics. Despite this, I think Arike played better overall compared to last game. She relied more on her team, made good decisions sometimes, and wasn't as eager this game to chuck up every shot opportunity she had.

Natasha Howard: I thought Howard did fine this game. She ended the game with 16 points and 13 rebounds which was a double double. She got some crucial buckets for the Wings which helped to keep them in the game. She definitely did have some trouble with Shakira Austin and Elena Delle Donne in the paint however so that was her biggest weakness. Howard ended up going 2-8 from inside the paint today (25%). Thus, she ended up mostly playing around the perimeter which wasn't that helpful as she went 2-8 from beyond the arc (25%). Overall, today was not Howard's best game but she still managed to contribute to the team offensively as much as she could.

Rest Of The Team: Crystal Dangerfield was ice cold from the field today, going 1-7 (14.29%) from the floor and scoring only 3 points. While much of the scoring on the Wings is expected from the Big 3 of Sabally, Howard, and Arike, the rest of the team still needs to step up their game offensively. No one else besides the Big 3 scored more than 6 points which wasn't a good sight to see. Kalani Brown also went 0-4 from the field but that's a whole different thing which I'll be getting into later on in the post. Dickey gave a decent spark from the bench with 6 points and went 3-3 from the floor (100%). Siegrist and Burton also hit a couple of shots as well. Overall, no one else on the Wings really stepped up scoring wise asides from making one or two baskets so that was not a good thing.

Part #2 - Reasons Why The Wings Lost
I had to put this part second since these were really important to note going forward.

Officiating: Normally, I don't complain about officiating but this is by far one of the worst officiated games which I've seen this season. I don't mind if the referees want to call fouls but my only thing its that if it's called on one end of the court, it has to be equally called on the other end of the court. A majority of the calls, in this game however, were in favor of the Mystics tonight and it was not even close. By the end of the game, the total number of fouls was 25 to the Wings and 17 to the Mystics. Now you might argue that it's only 8 fouls and it wouldn't have made a difference anyways. The Wings had a total of 16 free throws this game while the Mystics had a whopping 31 free throws. That's nearly double the number of free throws that the Mystics took when compared to the Wings. On defense, the Wings were getting some pretty terrible calls, especially for shooting fouls when the defenders hands were straight up in most instances. Furthermore, blocking fouls were called at a much higher rate in favor of the Mystics than the Wings, causing them to get into the bonus very early on. For reference, the Mystics as a team scored 46 points from just shots alone from the field. The other 29 points came from three throws. The Mystics ended up scoring more than a third of their team's total points from free throws alone. Now once again, I'm not saying that every call was in favor of the Mystics. While some calls were in fact fouls on the Wings' end, a majority were just empty fouls called against the Wings but not against the Mystics at the same rate. Furthermore for reference, both Sabally and Arike are top 10 in the league this season for free throw attempts er game, averaging about 5 free throw attempts per game. Both of them had 2 each in today's game and this game was probably the most aggressive game in the paint for both of them during this entire season so far. Ariel Atikins on the Mystics today took only one shot in the paint, which wasn't called for a foul, and ended up getting 7 free throws this game, three of which came from a fouled three pointer where she actually was fouled. The thing which sealed the deal for me was when one of the referees called a foul on Sabally with 0.2 seconds left in the game while the game was already pretty much over as the Mystics were up 75-74 with the ball in their control. After video review however, they dropped the foul call and just ended the game. But just the fact that they called a foul with 0.2 seconds left in the game which was already over and then went to the replay both to review the call and to then just drop it tells enough about it. Officiating definitely had a huge impact on how the game ended how it ended.

Kalani Brown: The thing that upset me the most in today's game for the Wings was Kalani Brown. She ended up going 0-4 from the field and that was the worst thing tonight. What made matters even worse was that about 3 of these shots were right under the basket with mismatch defenders on her. She's standing at 6'7 while 5'9 Brittney Sykes was guarding her on one play and 5'9 Natasha Cloud was guarding her on two other plays. She's almost a foot taller than both and couldn't put in a few easy tip in shots while standing right under the basket and with no Elena Delle Donne and Shakira Austin nearby.

Part #3 - Defense:
I won't split this part up into player by player as I normally do because this was the best defense so far that the Wings have played and it wasn't an individual effort, it was a team effort. Everyone playing very well on defense today. Sabally was holding her own against Shakira Austin. Natasha Howard was giving trouble to Elena Delle Donne. Kalani Brown did alright on defense but her presence was enough to have the Mystics double guess what kind of shots they take with her around. Burton did extremely well on defense in terms of applying constant perimeter pressure. Both her and Sabally ended with 3 steals each as well. This defense is exactly what I think the Wings can replicate day in and day out and they will be the scariest team in the league if they can. I'll share the defensive breakdowns of each zone so that everyone can truly understand how good the Wings' defense was today.

Dallas Wing's Defensive Shot Breakdown: I've mentioned this in a couple of posts but I've noticed a pattern in the WNBA which I call the 50-30-20 rule. Essentially, this means that 50% of all shots taken and points scored by a team are in the paint, 30% of all shots taken and points scored by a team are in the mid-range, and 20% of all shots taken and points scored by a team are from behind the arc. Therefore, I'll be listing how the Dallas Wings' defense affected from where the Mystics were forced to take their shots and score their points from just like in my previous game analysis.

Paint: 8 - 23 - 38.98% of all shots taken and 34.78% of all points scored (not with free throws)
Mid Range: 3 - 13 - 22.03% of all shots taken and 13.04% of all points scored (not with free throws)
Three Point: 8 - 23 - 38.98%% of all shots taken and 52.17% of all points scored (not with free throws)

By looking at this breakdown, we can see how great the Wings' defense actually did today. The very first thing which is noticeable is the paint defense. According to my 50-30-20 rule, keeping a team under 50% in terms of points scored and shots taken in the paint is a very good job for the defense. What makes this Wings defense today much more extraordinary is that they managed to keep the Mystics to under 40%. That is spectacular defense. In the WNBA, a team's defense almost never holds the opposing team to under 40% shooting from inside the paint. Yet, that's exactly what the Wings were able to do again. Honestly, that metric alone is enough to show how dominant the Wings' defense was today. I can't recall any other game where a team gets held to shooting under 40% of all shots taken from inside the paint and under 35% of all points scored from inside the paint and still win the game. The next evident thing in the breakdown is the three point range. The Wings forced the Mystics to take a much higher than average shots from beyond the arc. That's also another huge win for the defense. According to my 50-30-20 rule, the average WNBA team gets only 20% of its points and shots taken from beyond the arc. The Wings were able to force the Mystics to end up shooting almost 40% of their shots from beyond the arc and get a bit more than 50% of their points from beyond the arc. That's actually once again amazing defense. The Wings forced the Mystics to take lower quality shots from farther out and this ended up outweighing their paint and mid range scoring.

Final Recap: Overall, this game was disappointing for the Wings in terms of an officiating standpoint. A majority of the calls went against the Wings and not equally against the Mystics. This led to the Mystics shooting 31 free throws and this was the main reason the Mystic were able to come back in the first place. They were forced to take much less shots in the paint and much more shots from behind the arc. Furthermore from both areas, the Mystics shot just above 33%. Yet with the free throws, they were able to overcome their disasters on the offense and win the game. Now once again, I'm not saying that the officiating was the sole reason why the Wings lost. I am saying that it was a huge part why the Mystics were able to come back in the game. The Wings also had some plays and issues of their own which they did bad on. Kalani Brown not making a single basket under the rim against defenders who she was about a foot taller than was very poor. Another example is Jasmine Dickey fouling Ariel Atkins while she took a three pointer and the ball was already out of her hands when the score was 70-70 and the game had only 24 seconds left. Atkins' shot was already well off course but Dickey fouling her gave the Mystics a 3 point lead after Atkins hit all the free throws. Furthermore, Sabally wasn't able to hit a decently open three which would have probably won the game for the Wings. The Wings could have definitely won the game if some of those actions and mistakes were changed. Overall, I don't think the Wings as a whole should feel disappointed in themselves at all this game. They were big underdogs in a road game and almost won the game. Their defense was outstanding today and their offense was also pretty good overall. With today's loss, the Wings are now 3-2 in the season and they play the Connecticut Sun, who are a really good team, in 2 days. Should be interesting to see how that game goes and hopefully the Wings can win.

2023.06.03 06:11 PrincelingMallow Should I push for more tests/referral?

TL;DR: I'm tired of negligent doctors and being medically gaslit, so I'm unfortunately picking my battles right now, as I am in the middle of a lengthy pain and fatigue flare-up. Asking for advice on whether it's worth me pushing for a referral based on my blood test results.
Hey all.
I'm 32F and have been having symptoms for a few years, but GPs here in the UK have been somewhat useless in helping me figure it all out. I have some other health problems too and they just... don't want to help. It's infuriating.
One of my concerns is that I may have Hashimoto's. I've been keeping track of my thyroid since 2020 with private blood tests and the GP who analysed my last test has suggested subclinical hypothyroidism and possibly Hashimoto's.
My TPO antibodies have been steadily increasing over the last 2.5 years and are now at 64 IU/mL. Of the four blood tests I've had, three of my TSH results have been above range, but not by much; my last test showed my TSH to be 5.36 mU/L. My FT3 was 5.13 and free thyroxine was 18.3, so both within range.
Based on my results, does anyone think it's worth me pushing harder to get a referral to an endocrinologist, or maybe to have an ultrasound on my thyroid (over the last year, I've been experiencing some mild neck swelling and fullness in my throat, making it uncomfortable to swallow at times)?
I'm exhausted trying to advocate for myself and look after myself at the same time. I have a number of chronic illnesses that affect my life quite badly and I just want them to help me with ONE thing.
Thanks 🙂

2023.06.03 06:10 nloco317 BP2 hope

A lot of people on this sub ask, is this feeling or that feeling “normal”. I am here to tell you that, yes, all the feelings you are feeling are normal. I’ve been on medication for about five years now, and it changed my life. It helped me get back to the human I was before all of the bipolar experiences. But it doesn’t mean that I don’t experience all of the emotional roller coasters. I truly thought and hoped that would change. I am honestly disappointed to find that I still sink into the heartbreak feeling. But what has changed from the past is that I know I will survive it each time. Every time. This feeling. I know that it’s temporary. And that makes all the difference when it hurts as bad as it does. Because it does hurt that bad… And unfortunately, there’s no getting away from that. It’s that wet blanket or black hole or well or whatever imagery describes it best for you. For me, it’s a grabbing onto something and screaming and crying… But I’m 43, and I’ve learned to live with it with the help of meds… And I’m so grateful for the medication that has gotten me this far… And I have hope for all of us because the medication gets better every year. The treatments get better every year. The understanding of our brains gets better every year…so for the ones that are new to this or wondering about or struggling and not knowing WHY this hurts so BAD. There is hope. There can be peace. Not always, but at least some of the time. I’m just a really simple human. Hurting but still muddling through. I love y’all and know if I can make it, as wretched as I am, so can you. Whatever the journey looks like. I love you guys.

2023.06.03 06:10 Lama_161 Tracking on digital console

So I work as a live tech and recently got a little more into doing season recording.
And since I am having my own digital mixer with build in audio interface I am just using the desk for tracking and doing in ear mixes during these seasons. And then mix the whole season in logics afterwards.
So yeah I am having a soundcraft si impact at home and can borrow a sq7 from work for 40$ a day for some higher quality stuff.
My thought is about upgrading, to first Splitt the Signals and use a higher quality interface and preamps for the recording part, and the mixing desk for the in ear part. My question is if it would be worth it to invest in that equipment, considering that the sq7 already has in my opionen some pretty decent preamps and the preamps of the si impact are totally enough for recording non profit stuff in the youth club I am working at part time.
And thoughts and ideas
Ps: I would also use the tracking rack for Backup recording platform for recording "real" live Shows
Pps: Its usaly some small Bands and everything is miced pretty simple. Like in a live Situation So I dont need more then 16 channels

2023.06.03 06:10 Responsible-Soup7014 Alcohol ruined my life at 19 years old

Hello everyone you can call me brae and im an alcoholic. Id just like to share my story. It all started summer of 2021. It was the year I graduated high school and that’s when I got into drinking. Every weekend and sometimes during the week I was drinking. Didn’t miss a weekend. It started fine I could have a few and some shots call it a night wake up get coffee and be hungover but still ok. Then one day something clicked. I was deathly hungover puking in my toilet none stop and I just wanted it to stop. So I picked up a beer drank it and I was like woah it’s gone. Then I ended up blacking out again then night and repeated that very cycle for a week straight. Then I realized what am I doing. So is stopped. Once I stopped I felt awful I was anxious shaky and I didn’t know what was happening to me. I couldn’t sleep that night one bit. But lucky for me the next day there was a party and I’m sure you can guess what ended up happening. Next day drank. Next drank. And so forth. For about a month. Then college time came (I even brought shooters in my pocket on the long drive to my college for rest stops) and I felt like I needed to drink before anything class, hanging with friends, meeting new people, I’d make any excuse. There were times where I would skip class solely just to go to the liquor store and drink no other reason. Then I drank for 7 months straight not a single day break. I was in hell. I thought I was dying. One day I ended up in the hospital. My BAC was over .3 and I could’ve died. I knew I needed to change. Then I started detox and here I am. 6 months sober and I couldn’t be happier.

2023.06.03 06:10 Icy-Maintenance-8140 I have a partner but I want to be alone

I (21F) have a boyfriend (22M) that I have been dating for about 4 months. Before we started dating I was dating another guy for 1 year and 8 months before he broke up with me. At the time my current boyfriend was my best friend. My boyfriend is perfect, he is emotionally available, understanding, funny, and kind. We also think very similarly, however, recently I haven’t been the happiest.
I constantly worry about him. He isn’t doing that well in school, he has a strained relationship with his family, and doesn’t seem to have drive. I want to help him and I fact I have brought up these concerns to him but he always says that he is fine. He hasn’t done anything wrong in particular but it’s hard to have a conversation with him sometimes because he is always on his phone, I have expressed my feelings on this but he blames his ADHD for needing constant stimulation to the brain ( now I don’t have adhd so I don’t know if this is me being picky). He also doesn’t really show the want to grow as a person, he kinda acts childish in that sense.
I recently realized that I haven’t been single for a long time and I kinda wanna be independent again and be single (no I don’t plan to have a Hoe phase, I just wanna think about me ). I am constantly worrying about my boyfriend and his future that it just stresses me out to the point where I don’t want to share my future with him anymore.
I truly care about him, he is a good person and I honestly don’t want him to be cut out of my life completely, but idk if I am overthinking or not. I don’t know what to do. So if anyone can give me advice on what I should do or how I should communicate with him, please let me know. Thank you.

2023.06.03 06:10 Similar_Soft4108 Multiverse version of me

For a long time I have believed dreams were alternate reality’s, I rarely have a crazy dream leading me to believe such things, but this dream I just had has lead me to firmly believe it. I was in somebody’s house and my family was there as well, I looked at my hands and was throughly confused because I could feel the wind blowing on my hand. I looked up and my mother was there, I walk up to her and say “it’s nice to see you mom.” She looks at me and says “what do you mean?” “Well you live Ohio and it’s nice to have you back in texas.” She looks at me confused and I can physically feel my face scrunch from confusion. I walk around the house for a bit and realize we are at my great grandfathers house and he has unfortunately passed and my aunts and uncles are all there deciding who gets what, it doesn’t take long before a fight breaks out and I get tired of being there, so I grab my phone and it’s passcode locked and I stare at it for a second and punch in the passcode on my phone and it unlocks. Funny even in a parallel universe I still use the same passcode. I go to my contacts to call any of my friends and see if they want to hang out but I notice a contact named “babygirl❤️” So I call it and my ex picks up.(let’s call her emily) I am genuinely so confused at this point. “Hi baby what’s up?” “Uh hey what are you doing?” “Im just with my sister right now,but she said she wants to see you, do you want me to come get you?” “Uh yeah sure.” “Okay be there in five.” “Okay I’ll see you then.” “Love you.” “Love you?” For five more minutes I sit and listen to my family argue and get a text saying I’m here. I walk outside and there enough it’s her and her car her and her daddy where building that he said would be done soon. The door swings open and I immediately notice its her sister, but instead of giving me a rude look she gives me a hug and tell me it’s nice to see me, I crawl into the backseat of the car and look around she ask how my day has gone and I pause for a second “I don’t really know it didn’t start when you would have expected it to.” She looks at me funny and starts to drive off asking if I was hungry, I say yes and we get sonic (disgusting I know) and we sit and talk for a while her sister says she needs to go so we drive back to her house and drop her sister off and finally she asks me the question that made me realize I’m probably not dreaming. “(My full name) Whats wrong?” It makes me turn my neck so quickly I pop it For context I never told her my middle name “I don’t know who you are we haven’t seen eachother in months emily and now suddenly your in my phone saved as babygirl I’m very confused right now.” She looks at me confused as well and ask me to tell her what I mean. “Well first of all you cheated on me with your ex (call him mike) mike and got pregnant with him and it was a huge deal for nine months wether it was my or his.” She looks at me with shock “D me and you had a baby together she’s almost 6 months old mike hasn’t talked to me in almost a year, do you mean to tell me you don’t know what our daughter looks like?” “No, because it’s not my daughter.” At this point I don’t know how to explain I think I feel into a different universe so I simply tell her “I think I’m not from here emily I haven’t lived the life the man you know has I believe I’m asleep right now- She immediately pinches me and I feel the pain in my arm which confuses me to no extent “Did that hurt?” “Yes.” “Then you aren’t dreaming.” I build up my chest to tell her “Emily, I’m sure I love you but I don’t love you, I may love you on this world but where I’m “from” we haven’t spoken in months.” She looks heart broken I can’t handle it “I think I’m understanding now you are you but you aren’t you. You a copy of yourself in a different world?” “Correct.” “One where we aren’t together?” “Correct.” “What a shitty world.” “Semi-correct.” She looks at me with big sad puppy dog eyes and ask what’ll happen when I leave “I don’t know but I’ve theorized that when a event like this happens it’s almost like also being asleep so your version of D should just feel like he’s was asleep.” “Neat.” We have a little pause for a second “Do you want to see your daughter?” Another pause “No, because if I wake up it’ll drive me insane.” We look at each other and try to cherish what could be our last moments together and she tells me she has a idea and pulls me in and kisses me on my cheek “Not on the lips i dont know how to explain to you that I kissed you, haha” we sit in the car for a bit more in silence and I nod off and suddenly hear my name be called loudly and I open my eyes and I’m back in my room on my bed I look around. Back to my life. I check my phone there is no “babygirl❤️” nobody in my family had died and my mom is still in Ohio. The only logical explanation I have i I somehow traveled the multiverse and ended up in the one where me and my ex did work out and had our baby together. Or I could have just had a dream were I could feel things on my skin and feel the pain of a pinch and distinctly remember conversations but hey who knows?

2023.06.03 06:10 the_cutest_throwaway I (25M) have been dating this girl (21F) for 2 weeks. Do I end things over an communication or bring it up?

I’ve dated this girl now for two weeks. The first week we met up a couple of times as she is traveling for work during the summer and we wanted to spend as much time before she goes off, and we had great chemistry and she came off as a really cool person. We also would text a lot and even had a phone conversation one night. However, the second week I started hearing less and less from her and she couldn’t see me because she was busy.
She eventually wouldn’t reply to my texts for up to a day, and I brought it up with her to clarify to make sure I’m not getting any mixed signals. She said she was just busy and too mentally focused on taking care of all these travel preparations (some of which I helped her with). I said I understood and told her to do what she needs to do. However, nothing has changed since and I’m getting the vibe that she isn’t interested or too busy and it’s making me lose interest. I also feel like whenever we talk it’s completely about her and barely anything about me or what I’m up to.
I understand that communication expectations are different for everyone, but this one started off with A LOT of communication and then just dropped off the face of the planet. Giving hot and cold vibes.
What I wanna know is what is more appropriate? To have a discussion with her about this or just end things? From my perspective the first few weeks of dating someone you should be investing in getting to know the other person without them having to communicate or ask for attention, or am I missing something? Just wanted to get other people’s input on this, because I would’ve otherwise liked this relationship to workout otherwise, just doesn’t seem like a great start.
TLDR: Had great communication and dates with girl the first week, then she got “busy” and communication dropped drastically. I brought it up and not much has changed. Do I bring it up again or just end things?

2023.06.03 06:10 OkMathematician7932 My dog died today, and I have no one to talk to about it

After suffering from a disease for over 10 years, my dog was put to sleep. I wasn't able to say goodbye. I feel gutted, but I don't have anyone to talk to about this. So, hey Reddit.
I got my dog when I was 9 years old. He was born with a rare genetic defect, one that would kill him later on, but my family refused to put him down until his quality of life truly deteriorated. When he stopped walking, we knew it was time. We all loved him so much despite his disability. He truly was a great first dog, and I miss him so much. Today has been so terrible.
My partner hasn't consoled me in any way. In fact, they haven't done anything today to comfort me. They promised to visit me today (they live an hour away), and they did not follow through. We've been arguing recently over our sex life (I have sex-related PTSD), but I honestly thought they would finally support me. I don't know what's next for us because I do love them. But I am furious and heartbroken over this.
If you've ever put a pet down, leave some advice, please. I've never gone through this before. I've been playing a few video games to distract myself (leave some TOTK tips haha). Maybe I'll watch a movie. I don't know. I don't know how to feel normal right now.

2023.06.03 06:09 demikylos Question on Wrap fee on iFast platform

Hi all, currently i'm investing in Blackrock World Technology fund (unit trust) , 400$ per month. Every quarter i noticed i am charged with a platform fee of around $8 and wrap fee of around $40.
Been investing in this fund for around 3+ years and now with a little bit of research, seems like this fee of 4% ($48 / $1200) is way high.
I like to DCA monthly and not think or fuss so much, looking towards long term returns of 20-30 years. Is it advisable to sell and reinvest it into a simple ETF like QQQ (tech) or SPY instead ?
Thanks for your time

2023.06.03 06:09 Broad-Tomato45 AITA for telling a white lie to my friend?

For the last month and change I've (M19) been friends with this girl "Jane" (F19). We had 2 classes together last quarter and got to talking there, and we started off by just exchanging answers with each other but we quickly became friends. Last week I decided to try and shoot my shot even though I figured she'd turn me down because she's a lot more attractive than me (I'd say I'm a 6 while she's a 9) and we hadn't actually known each other or been friends for quite a while. I figured she'd say something along the lines of "that's really sweet but I think we should just be friends" which I'm more than fine with, and just asking her out would be great for my confidence so I decided to go through with it.
A couple weeks ago I ask her out and she says yes. I'm decently surprised this because I expected her to say no, so I just decide to count myself lucky. The next Monday I follow up with Jane about this to try and set a time, and she says she needs to figure out her schedule for the next week and she'll text me. The next night she texts me what I expected her to say right now, that she's not looking for anything right now (I know this is probably code for she's not interested in anything with me, which I don't blame her for) and that she views it as a purely platonic thing, but she stressed that she's still down as long as I know it isn't a date. Because I was already more than fine with being just friends and that Jane would get freaked and bail if I admitted I wanted it to be a date, I lied and said that I just wanted it to be a platonic thing too. I think I made the right call here, but I've admittedly struggled with this for the last few days.

2023.06.03 06:09 Drakolf TftM Councilor Graham- Religion:

It wasn't the first time the proposal was brought up, but it was the first time in a long time had the wherewithal to refuse.
The Adrati Brotherhood was a militantly monotheistic culture that vied for galactic dominance neither through war nor diplomacy. The Human concept of evangelism paled in comparison to their efforts to convert literally every sapient being to their theocratic way of life.
They weren't a threat, of course, they were simply really fucking annoying.
Still, Human Councillor Graham stared at the Adrati Councillor with a look that was a mixture of sheer bafflement and exhaustion as the Adrati proceeded to filibuster. The Council was designed in such a way that anything less than a unanimous decision couldn't pass, it was a necessary bit of bureaucracy that ensured no singular species gained control of the Hedron.
The Adrati took advantage of this, and for the past three days had been filibustering each time ceaselessly, with stamina only a zealot could muster. In spite of the rest of the Council pleading with Graham to approve the tax and just move on with life, Graham refused.
Graham, back on Earth, had been part of the American Republican Reformist Party, which was distinct from the now-defunct 'Grand Old Party', a term which to this day was remarked on with some derision. While the R2P had long since divorced itself from the political party that it shot off from, there were a few tactics it still employed to this day.
"Friends of the Council." The Adrati started.
"Motion to have every species on the Council pay a non-believer tax for every religion they're not part of." Graham spoke. The Adrati was caught off guard by the Human's immediate interruption, had it not aligned with their goals, he would have complained.
"Human Councilor Graham, please explain." The Canician Councilor, Grahim, asked.
"It's simple." Graham replied. "If the Adrati can force the issue of a non-believer tax, so can I." He regarded the Adrati. "You currently demand a ten percent tax for anyone who doesn't believe in your religion, correct?"
"That is correct." The Adrati replied.
"I propose a one percent tax to be paid to any religion, to be waived at any time by a Councillor without need for Council approval." Graham stated. "I am willing to allow the Adrati to keep their ten percent. Is that agreeable, Adrati Councilor Gheiza?"
The Adrati was too caught up in his victory, he fervently nodded.
"Does the rest of the Council agree?"
Grahim stared at Graham for a few moments, then his eyes widened slightly. "I find this proposal agreeable." He said. "I would urge the Council to agree as well."
Humanity had a reputation for lateral thinking and taxes, the rest of the Council, more curious as to what he had planned, agreed. The vote was unanimous, and Gheiza flaunted his victory.
"First and foremost, I would like to waive any and all taxes my fellow Councilors have to pay, except the Adrati." Gheiza froze at the Human's words. "I will now proceed to list off every Human religion on and off the planet Earth. Starting with the East Asien religions, there is Confucionaism, Shinto, Taoism-"
"Wait, Human, what are you-?"
"Do not interrupt the Human Councilor." Grahim said with a (very accurate) wolfish grin. "Continue, Human Councilor Graham."
Graham nodded. "Benzhuism, Bimomism, Chinese Ancestral Worship..." Graham could filibuster like nobody's business, given the chance, and with each religion listed, he pulled up a well-researched and collated page dating back hundreds of years. "Onmyodo, Shugendo, Ainu..." With each religion added onto the list, the Adrati shriveled ever so slightly.
"Hinduism, Jainism, Sikhism, Buddhism; of which there are several sects such as Mahayana, Tiantai, of which there are several sub-sects..."
Graham hadn't even strayed from East Asia, and had already listed dozens of religions, far more than any other species had developed. Such a fractious species, Humanity had warred over many things, and religion had been a major contender for most destructive, of which the debate over which sport was best was a close second.
"Moving on to the Abrahamic religions, starting with Judaism, the Baha'i faith, Christianity..."
By the point that Graham had listed the hundredth religion, the Council had shifted from amusement, to barely restrained mirth, to concern, and then finally to horror as one percent times one hundred was still one hundred percent, and even then, Graham continued to list more.
"C-Councilor Graham..." Vagraxi Councilor Ressa-Gashari. "You've listed over one hundred religions."
"I have." Graham replied. "I'm not even a fourth of the way through." He regarded the Adrati, who was trembling in his seat. "Adrati Councilor Gheiza, your entire species not only owes Humanity one hundred percent of your profits to Humanity, but you've accrued a debt so massive, the only way you could possibly pay it off is in slavery." The word was uttered casually, but the Council balked at the words.
Humanity despised slavery, it was one of the few things that guaranteed war with them. To hear a Human causally mention it was shocking. "Which is why I am willing to personally revoke that debt, if the Adrati Brotherhood agrees to never demand a non-believer tax on anyone ever again."
"I will comply." Gheiza said softly.
Graham clapped his hands together and smiled. "Excellent. Your understanding is vastly appreciated, I pray to all our myriad gods that we continue forward in peace." He regarded the Council, his expression serious. "Now, we have several days of backlog to go through, I've taken the liberty of collating everything into a handy resource, and request we all convene one week from now to address everything. I request we adjourn."
The request was granted.

2023.06.03 06:09 Severe_Plant_humper About quitting vs "controlling."

I see so many posts on here geared towards quitting drinking once and for all. There is a place for that, it's called AA. What I love about this subreddit is that it is a space that is not-- and cannot be Alcoholics Anonymous. I love that is a safe space for people who may have gone there and recovered--and then found support from strangers even further away from quitting drinking. I applaud you, and praise you for controlling your alcohol in that manner. But one thing I don't see a ton of support on here for is-- to slow down drinking, while having a good time, and eliminating our poor habits during that time. If you need to quit forever because you black out, or you do criminal things, refrain from commenting on my post about how anything I am saying related to that. Again, I applaud and respect you for that, but this is different.

So, I will start with the fact that I have always calmed by booze intake down, even after long weeks or months having at least 4 or five beers every other day. I have been able to not drink for jobs, for social life, and for my life through my entire life. I love alcohol, even when not getting shit faced--the feeling of just 2-3 beers--and leaving it at that is great-- as is the occasional shit faced night.

But that is why I come here. That occasional shit faced night --just recently-- is turning into more and more shit faced nights. Am I depressed? What am I doing? I need help to control the amount of booze I intake, and how I need to organize my life that way. There. I just answered my own question, but it's not that easy. I can write down a list on a piece of paper, or calander to control this, but that will get boring.

One of my biggest problems is drunk dialing. I NEVER have said anything so bad anyone was mad at me. I am sweet and gentle and just love talking. So, eliminate the fact that I could be harming anyone. They (friends) know me so well, that they know when to refuse a call, or if it is serious etc.

ANYWAY drunk dialing is one of the things I wanna quit. Advice?
How does anyone out there reading this who learned to control thier drinking do it? What is your strategy. Sure, you might get fucked one night so bad that you contemplate quit drinking again, but who out there has tamed themselves so well, that they have gained control over their drinking.

Again, if you had a very serious problem--stay sober if you made it, and if you didn't seek help. I just need advice on preventing myself from drinking all the fucking time (esspecially after covid). I am 32. WE all went through covid, so we were trapped. Thats where this began, I want to go back to how I was before that.

Some background: I worked in a hospital.... Won't tell you what I do or my beliefs in covid, but it was most certainty busy always.... It fucked a lot of us up.

There are many journals on how cognition works, vs a multitask or perceived --action to action-- thought process. It sounds convoluted but think of this that Sully (the guy who landed the plane in the Hudson said). I am gonna paraphrase here: He said something like-- "I am well read." I understand neurobiology and the fact that a person does not "multitask," they simply move from action to action without doing each job very well. or perceived --action to action-- thought process.

What he is saying is that each action we make is its own. To perform a task well, one must focus on the task now, and then move on to the next one and do the same. Trying to do too many things at once is not a good trait. Being able to cycle through and focus on each task is more advantageous that trying to juggle 40 things at once.... At least that's how I like to think of it....

Maybe I answered my own question.
Love to hear any feedback.

Thank you.

2023.06.03 06:09 Sinsid Import large number of movies

I am looking to import a large number of movies. My issue is that the browser freezes up when I go to Library Import. Its trying to render them all at the same time it seems in that table.
What I would like is a way for Radarr to only bring up the first 500 or so, whatever I figure my browser can handle at a time.
