If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It, I Guess…

2023.06.03 06:07 OpheliaMorningwood If It Ain’t Broke, Don’t Fix It, I Guess…

I have been inundated with advertisements for Mint Mobile. I don’t mind because Ryan Reynolds is a cutie pie. I was hoping to save quite a bit over my usual $120 monthly bill with Verizon, the trick is Mint wants you to prepay like 3 months at a time. Whatever, if it comes to like $20 a month and I can use my existing phone and phone number, great.
I input my info and address and phone info for me and my husband, all was okay, didn’t need to buy new phones we couldn’t afford. I got my SIM cards in the mail and…nothing. I knew we lived in a bit of a rural cell tower Dead Zone and Verizon coverage could get spotty, but the only time I could get a signal on Mint’s network was when I drove out to the main road from our subdivision. Texts were getting sent/received hours late, all my phone calls were going to voice mail. I had to call Customer Service and my doctor’s office via Skype on my IPad because the phones just could not connect to Mint’s network. It worked fine while I was out and about, but not at home, so it turned out to be a false economy. I went back to Verizon and was charged a $30 reconnection fee. Great.
Just a little cautious tale if you are tempted to change accounts as well. Unless you live in a really urban area with an abundance of cell towers, Mint might not be so minty.

2023.06.03 05:09 Kinddude- London Space Shuttle: A Reexamination

So I pick up an eighth of this strain from Cresco in February. At that time my impression was nice tasting herb but weak tea in comparison to indica heavies like Face Mints, Bio J, GDP, etc. Just found the jar in the back of the rotation drawer and hit it again.
Completely different impact. Flavor stayed about the same but the high was deeper, faster hitting and “stronger” than when first vaped in February.
Science would suggest decay of cannabinoids over time. So could the shift to higher CBD/CBN content be all it is? Terp changes over time? Or, as I suspect, all of the above form an ever shifting blob of “entourage effect” that combines with genetics to determine impact. Variables I have controlled are location, consumption method and time of day.
Just remain amazed with the variable power of this plant!!!

Attempting a aerogarden grow how’s she looking? I trimmed big fan leaves today(probably didn’t have to)
I was given free seeds a a canna convention recently the bag had no info on strain or type of seed but after research it seems it’s most like a indica strain and an autoflower. didn’t plan on planting them in an aerogarden but then was given 2 units for my birthday so said why the heck not. First pic is from day 23 and the second pic is from today at day 25. I trimmed the bigger fan leaves yesterday as the grow shop in my town recommended I did so that the nutrients will be pulled into new growth and not those big heavy leaves.
I guess I’m just posting here to see if anyone has advice on if they look alright for their age and what I should be doing from here forward. They are getting the amount of nutrients (from general hydroponics nute kit) I was recommended from the shop which is slightly under what the feeding chart recommends. I keep the Ph at 5.9-6 she’s on a light schedule 18 hours on 6 hours off and the light is kept around 8-10in from the plant the light was originally 150w but I upgraded this unit to a custom 250w light. I’m worried about how short the plant is. It already has 4 nodes. When I planted it I had plans to try doing LST but it’s way too short for that.
I keep the humidity at 40-50% and I’d like the temp to stay at 75-80 degrees but unfortunately it’s getting hot where I live and today the temp inside the tent reached 88 degrees so I had a bigger additional fan blowing into the tent but was only able to drop the temp to 85. Will that higher temp hurt the plant?
Before it’s suggest that I move it to soil, I’m not interested in doing that I’d have no where to put a pot of soil that big.
I also have a “pole grow light” that I was thinking of sticking in the side of the tent but it’s only 50w so not sure if that would help at all?
Give me all your tips and advice please I’m new to this the only other time I’ve grown was me and my ex planted a seed in the woods and came back 3 months later and it actually grew without anyone doing upkeep. I wish this way was that simple.

No idea what I’m doing
Hey guys. New here and just starting out. I’m new to growing, but have gardened and raised houseplants why whole life. Decided to go hydroponic with my first grow and see what happens. I’m 4 weeks in and I’m not sure what the next step is. Strain is an autoflower. If needed, I can send more pictures and info on my fertilization and setup.

2023.06.02 22:58 Joadzilla America Is Headed Toward Collapse

History shows how to stave it off.
How has America slid into its current age of discord? Why has our trust in institutions collapsed, and why have our democratic norms unraveled?
All human societies experience recurrent waves of political crisis, such as the one we face today. My research team built a database of hundreds of societies across 10,000 years to try to find out what causes them. We examined dozens of variables, including population numbers, measures of well-being, forms of governance, and the frequency with which rulers are overthrown. We found that the precise mix of events that leads to crisis varies, but two drivers of instability loom large. The first is popular immiseration—when the economic fortunes of broad swaths of a population decline. The second, and more significant, is elite overproduction—when a society produces too many superrich and ultra-educated people, and not enough elite positions to satisfy their ambitions.
These forces have played a key role in our current crisis. In the past 50 years, despite overall economic growth, the quality of life for most Americans has declined. The wealthy have become wealthier, while the incomes and wages of the median American family have stagnated. As a result, our social pyramid has become top-heavy. At the same time, the U.S. began overproducing graduates with advanced degrees. More and more people aspiring to positions of power began fighting over a relatively fixed number of spots. The competition among them has corroded the social norms and institutions that govern society.
The U.S. has gone through this twice before. The first time ended in civil war. But the second led to a period of unusually broad-based prosperity. Both offer lessons about today’s dysfunction and, more important, how to fix it.
To understand the root causes of the current crisis, let’s start by looking at how the number of über-wealthy Americans has grown. Back in 1983, 66,000 American households were worth at least $10 million. That may sound like a lot, but by 2019, controlling for inflation, the number had increased tenfold. A similar, if smaller, upsurge happened lower on the food chain. The number of households worth $5 million or more increased sevenfold, and the number of mere millionaires went up fourfold.
On its surface, having more wealthy people doesn’t sound like such a bad thing. But at whose expense did elites’ wealth swell in recent years?
Starting in the 1970s, although the overall economy continued to grow, the share of that growth going to average workers began to shrink, and real wages leveled off. (It’s no coincidence that Americans’ average height—a useful proxy for well-being, economic and otherwise—stopped increasing around then too, even as average heights in much of Europe continued climbing.) By 2010, the relative wage (wage divided by GDP per capita) of an unskilled worker had nearly halved compared with mid-century. For the 64 percent of Americans who didn’t have a four-year college degree, real wages shrank in the 40 years before 2016.
As wages diminished, the costs of owning a home and going to college soared. To afford an average house, a worker earning the median wage in 2016 had to log 40 percent more hours than she would have in 1976. And parents without a college degree had to work four times longer to pay for their children’s college.
Even college-educated Americans aren’t doing well across the board. They made out well in the 1950s, when fewer than 15 percent of 18-to-24-year-olds went to college, but not today, when more than 60 percent of high-school grads immediately enroll. To get ahead of the competition, more college graduates have sought out advanced degrees. From 1955 to 1975, the number of students enrolled in law school tripled, and from 1960 to 1970, the number of doctorate degrees granted at U.S. universities more than tripled. This was manageable in the post–World War II period, when the number of professions requiring advanced degrees shot up. But when the demand eventually subsided, the supply didn’t. By the 2000s, degree holders greatly outnumbered the positions available to them. The imbalance is most acute in the social sciences and humanities, but the U.S. hugely overproduces degrees even in STEM fields.
This is part of a broader trend. Compared with 50 years ago, far more Americans today have either the financial means or the academic credentials to pursue positions of power, especially in politics. But the number of those positions hasn’t increased, which has led to fierce competition.
Competition is healthy for society, in moderation. But the competition we are witnessing among America’s elites has been anything but moderate. It has created very few winners and masses of resentful losers. It has brought out the dark side of meritocracy, encouraging rule-breaking instead of hard work.
All of this has left us with a large and growing class of frustrated elite aspirants, and a large and growing class of workers who can’t make better lives for themselves.
The decades that have led to our present-day dysfunction share important similarities with the decades leading to the Civil War. Then as now, a growing economy served to make the rich richer and the poor poorer. The number of millionaires per capita quadrupled from 1800 to 1850, while the relative wage declined by nearly 50 percent from the 1820s to the 1860s, just as it has in recent decades. Biological data from the time suggest that the average American’s quality of life declined significantly. From 1830 to the end of the century, the average height of Americans fell by nearly two inches, and average life expectancy at age 10 decreased by eight years during approximately the same period.
This popular immiseration stirred up social strife, which could be seen in urban riots. From 1820 to 1825, when times were good, only one riot occurred in which at least one person was killed. But in the five years before the Civil War, 1855 to 1860, American cities experienced no fewer than 38 such riots. We see a similar pattern today. In the run-up to the Civil War, this frustration manifested politically, in part as anti-immigrant populism, epitomized by the Know-Nothing Party. Today this strain of populism has been resurrected by Donald Trump.
Strife grew among elites too. The newly minted millionaires of the 19th century, who made their money in manufacturing rather than through plantations or overseas trade, chafed under the rule of the southern aristocracy, as their economic interests diverged. To protect their budding industries, the new elites favored high tariffs and state support for infrastructure projects. The established elites—who grew and exported cotton, and imported manufactured goods from overseas—strongly opposed these measures. The southern slaveholders’ grip on the federal government, the new elites argued, prevented necessary reforms in the banking and transportation systems, which threatened their economic well-being.
As the elite class expanded, the supply of desirable government posts flattened. Although the number of U.S. representatives grew fourfold from 1789 to 1835, it had shrunk by mid-century, just as more and more elite aspirants received legal training—then, as now, the chief route to political office. Competition for political power intensified, as it has today.
Those were cruder times, and intra-elite conflict took very violent forms. In Congress, incidences and threats of violence peaked in the 1850s. The brutal caning that Representative Preston Brooks of South Carolina gave to Senator Charles Sumner of Massachusetts on the Senate floor in 1856 is the best-known such episode, but it was not the only one. In 1842, after Representative Thomas Arnold of Tennessee “reprimanded a pro-slavery member of his own party, two Southern Democrats stalked toward him, at least one of whom was armed with a bowie knife,” the historian Joanne Freeman recounts. In 1850, Senator Henry Foote of Mississippi pulled a pistol on Senator Thomas Hart Benton of Missouri. In another bitter debate, a pistol fell out of a New York representative’s pocket, nearly precipitating a shoot-out on the floor of Congress.
This intra-elite violence presaged popular violence, and the deadliest conflict in American history.
The victory of the North in the Civil War decimated the wealth and power of the southern ruling class, temporarily reversing the problem of elite overproduction. But workers’ wages continued to lag behind overall economic growth, and the “wealth pump” that redistributed their income to the elites never stopped. By the late 19th century, elite overproduction was back, new millionaires had replaced the defeated slave-owning class, and America had entered the Gilded Age. Economic inequality exploded, eventually peaking in the early 20th century. By 1912, the nation’s top wealth holder, John D. Rockefeller, had $1 billion, the equivalent of 2.6 million annual wages—100 times higher than the top wealth holder had in 1790.
Then came the New York Stock Exchange collapse of 1929 and the Great Depression, which had a similar effect as the Civil War: Thousands of economic elites were plunged into the commoner class. In 1925, there were 1,600 millionaires, but by 1950, fewer than 900 remained. The size of America’s top fortune remained stuck at $1 billion for decades, inflation notwithstanding. By 1982, the richest American had $2 billion, which was equivalent to “only” 93,000 annual wages.
But here is where the two eras differed. Unlike the post–Civil War period, real wages steadily grew in the mid-20th century. And high taxes on the richest Americans helped reverse the wealth pump. The tax rate on top incomes, which peaked during World War II at 94 percent, stayed above 90 percent all the way until the mid-1960s. Height increased by a whopping 3 inches in roughly the first half of the 20th century. Life expectancy at age 10 increased by nearly a decade. By the 1960s, America had achieved a broad-based prosperity that was virtually unprecedented in human history.
The New Deal elites learned an important lesson from the disaster of the Civil War. The reversal of elite overproduction in both eras was similar in magnitude, but only after the Great Depression was it accomplished through entirely nonviolent means. The ruling class itself was an important part of this—or, at least, a prosocial faction of the ruling class, which persuaded enough of their peers to acquiesce to the era’s progressive reforms.
As the historian Kim Phillips-Fein wrote in Invisible Hands, executives and stockholders mounted an enormous resistance to the New Deal policies regulating labor–corporate relations. But by mid-century, a sufficient number of them had consented to the new economic order for it to become entrenched. They bargained regularly with labor unions. They accepted the idea that the state would have a role to play in guiding economic life and helping the nation cope with downturns. In 1943, the president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce—which today pushes for the most extreme forms of neoliberal market fundamentalism—said, “Only the willfully blind can fail to see that the old-style capitalism of a primitive, free-shooting period is gone forever.” President Dwight Eisenhower, considered a fiscal conservative for his time, wrote to his brother:
Should any political party attempt to abolish social security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor laws and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history. There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things … Their number is negligible and they are stupid.
Barry Goldwater ran against Lyndon Johnson in 1964 on a platform of low taxes and anti-­union rhetoric. By today’s standards, Goldwater was a middle-of-the-road conservative. But he was regarded as radical at the time, too radical even for many business leaders, who abandoned his campaign and helped bring about his landslide defeat.
The foundations of this broad-based postwar prosperity—and for the ruling elite’s eventual acquiescence to it—were established during the Progressive era and buttressed by the New Deal. In particular, new legislation guaranteed unions’ right to collective bargaining, introduced a minimum wage, and established Social Security. American elites entered into a “fragile, unwritten compact” with the working classes, as the United Auto Workers president Douglas Fraser later described it. This implicit contract included the promise that the fruits of economic growth would be distributed more equitably among both workers and owners. In return, the fundamentals of the political-economic system would not be challenged. Avoiding revolution was one of the most important reasons for this compact (although not the only one). As Fraser wrote in his famous resignation letter from the Labor Management Group in 1978, when the compact was about to be abandoned, “The acceptance of the labor movement, such as it has been, came because business feared the alternatives.”
We are still suffering the consequences of abandoning that compact. The long history of human society compiled in our database suggests that America’s current economy is so lucrative for the ruling elites that achieving fundamental reform might require a violent revolution. But we have reason for hope. It is not unprecedented for a ruling class—with adequate pressure from below—to allow for the nonviolent reversal of elite overproduction. But such an outcome requires elites to sacrifice their near-term self-interest for our long-term collective interests. At the moment, they don’t seem prepared to do that.

2023.06.02 22:15 GasAndMiddies Review: Khalifa Kush - Khalifa Mints

I'm here today to review Khalifa Mints.
I expect this to be a polarizing product.
Here is the review:

👁️ Look

👃 Smell

👅 Taste


Alright guys, hear me out.
Everything about this makes you want to hate the product, however I can't.
Based on the flower itself (and I'm expecting if people judged this blind), it tastes really good.
Not mind blowing terps, but pleasant throughout. Everything was above average.
I know both Cresco & Gage take some heat as brands, but if I remove my own bias, I can say this is:

First grow, day 86 on my autos. Week 8 of flower. Info on the strain suggests 70-80 days from germination to harvest. To me the buds don't look very dense, still no amber trichomes etc. Do I have anything to worry about or are these just slow and need more time?

Despite the Decline in Revenue, Bitcoin Mining Companies Continue to Expand

According to recent announcements, several Bitcoin mining businesses have continued to construct and boost production despite a 44% drop in mining revenue over the previous year.
CleanSpark, an American company that mines bitcoins, revealed on June 1 that it has paid $40.5 million for 12,500 brand-new Antminer S19 XP units. The price agreed upon was $23, which is less than the going rate in the market for Tera hashes per second (TH/s).

Expanding Bitcoin Companies

The announcement comes as miners are under increased strain as Bitcoin mining difficulty hit an all-time high of over 50 trillion on June 1. At 395 EH/s on May 30, the network hash rate was also very close to its highest value.
According to the terms of CleanSpark’s purchase agreement, the manufacturer is expected to supply 6,000 machines in June and the remaining units in August. The combined purchase will add 1.76 exahashes per second to the existing 6.7 EH/s of the Antminer S19 XP machines, which have a hash rate of 141 TH/s.
  • Bitcoin mining businesses recover from a 44% revenue drop.
  • CleanSpark to supply 6,000 machines, increasing Antminer S19 XP hash rate.
  • May saw 493 Bitcoins mined, driven by increased transaction fees and Ohio facility opening.
Georgia is where the mining farms for CleanSpark are located. The company has 67,700 mining devices running, and as of today, it has mined 2,395 BTC, according to its website.
Despite diminishing Bitcoin mining profitability — which, according to Hashrate Index, has dropped to $0.071 per TH/s per day, down 82% from the top of the cryptocurrency market in late 2021 and down 44% over the previous 12 months — the company has continued to grow.
20,000 brand-new Antminer S19j Pro+ units were purchased by CleanSpark in February, and 45,000 S19 XP ASIC rigs were added to its fleet in April.
Other recent corporate updates stated that Bitfarms had mined 459 BTC in May, boosting productivity by 6.5% compared to the same month last year. In the same period, the network difficulty increased by 65% as a result of a 47% growth in hash rate.
493 Bitcoins were mined in May, according to Cypher Mining, a record. The jump in transaction fees that occurred during the early-May height of the BRC-20 meme-coin minting spree was the cause of the price spikes. The opening of a new facility in Ohio was agreed upon by Compass Mining and hosting company Arthur Mining on May 31.

2023.06.02 18:34 Hulkstrong23 [Actives] Question about when to harvest when growing in clusters

[Actives] Question about when to harvest when growing in clusters
I bought this strain, Mexicana var. Tampanensis, mainly to get some sclerotia, but decided I might as well get some fruits while I wait. I'm loving this first flush, as I didn't expect any fruits originally. I heard they produce pretty small fruits and the only other strain I have previous experience with are penis envy and golden teacher.
My question is; how the heck do I go about harvesting some of these? They're growing in clusters, but some clusters look as if they already have some fruits ready to harvest. Do I use a clean pair of sharp scissors to snip the ones that are ready? Let them go until I can get a full cluster? I'm nervous I'll damage the others in the cluster that aren't ready yet and stop the cluster from growing. I am worried about not maximizing the yield, but I'm also not that worried since these are basically bonus that I hadn't originally planned for.
A lot of confusion also comes from it seeming like the veil on the caps are tearing before they're fully matured. The veil tears but the stems look thicker than pictures I've seen, and theyre way shorter. The pics I've seen are thin stems with almost flat caps. And they're all really tall lol. Wasn't sure if the pics I've seen are just crazy genetics or if that's normal. It's been hard for me to find many pics of the actual mushrooms these produce since most info out on them is just for the sclerotia.
Also, if yall have any advice on when to go ahead and dig for sclerotia, I'd love to hear it!

2023.06.02 17:52 anujmishra11 Port In Experience

I am here to share my shocking recent port in experience. This is not to downvote visible by any means but just to highlight some problem points which hopefully visible can fix if they ever read
I initiated new connection with visible 3 days back and started port request from US Mobile. I was activating eSim on Iphone 13.
I have tried eSim with Visible, T Mobile and Mint in past and the experience has been mostly positive but this time it was different.
First the temp number that visible gives did not activated for about 24 hours, different reps kept mentioned some backend glitch. We/or escalation team can fix very quick etc. Finally yesterday morning, I was able to login visible app and see the temp line. Then began port trouble.
Different reps kept mentioning line has to be active on other carrier and it will port, there is some backend issue. ( all previous port out were done in few min, so call me impatient or whatever)
I read in reddit forums, there is no auto release on US Mobile end, so I requested them to release since I am porting to different carrier which they did. I lost service on US Mobile eSim but port did not complete to Visible.
Upon multiple chats, same assurance it is some issue without mentioning what .. wait . by last night - some rep said .. oh, the number is not active on other carrier, that is why port did not work. Ask them to reinstate line to which USMobile said, now they dont have authority to do anything with that number. Visible said we cant do much. We can give you new number.
USMobile told they can happily do 3 way call to triage issue but visible does not even have 1800 number and neither they did agree. So i had to spent another sleepness night since it is my primary number which I am holding over a decade plus and or verge of losing.
This morning, I finally get email from visible saying port completed, delete old esim and power cycle, do new etc. I deleted all sim, even removed physical ones - the app did not let me complete new e-sim install.
again hours of chat to reconfirm email, 10s of things and same assurane, we are working on it. Finally I got email few min abck and now app was able to add the service plan with my number,
on one end, I am thankful for all rep/team who worked to fix the issue but other side - very frustrated for getting my anxiety attacks, unfaithful replies and different info every time.
Lesson learned -
  1. eSim is still crime. may be opting physical sim would have been better.
  2. the port out process is no joke. If number goes in Limbo, better be with standard carrier who have more streamline process.
Either stick with 1 of 3 standard carrier or stay with stable MVNO. Try to take juice out ( more cheap) and one may run into issues with no coming back.
Let me know any suggestions, what I would've done differently to avoid.
PS - Thanks to reddit forums for lots of information ( including mis-information as well)

2023.06.02 17:25 northhiker1 How to proceed with Realtor, need honest advice.

Long but please read, need honest advice
So we are buying a completed new build across the country (wasnt built for us, spec built, then listed, so basically like any other purchase, there was no builder contract signed), purchase price 713k (closing is 06/06 but its an away closing so we need to sign docs 06/03). We had an inspection that showed a few things. Our realtor sent an addendum and builders agent agreed to fix everything, let's say by 05/21 (written in the addendum). So come 05/21 I ask our realtor if I should call the inspector to schedule a time for him to go out and verify repairs. My realtor said he will take care of that no problem, which isn't out of the norm, my realtor scheduled and was present for original inspection.
Few days go by past 05/21 and I text our agent asking if he scheduled the re inspection. He says not yet, he wants to wait until all repairs are made. I'm confused, all repairs should be made by now but I dont question it, I assume our agent knows what he is talking about.
Come 05/29 I text our agent again asking if the inspection was done. Nope not yet, agent says "I'll have him go out tomorrow when all repairs should be done". At this point I call our agent and ask what he is talking about, the addendum says 05/21 for repairs to be completed, not 05/30. He looks at the addendum and goes "oh guess I got my dates wrong, no big deal, I'll still have the inspector go out tomorrow 05/30"
Inspector goes out, 2 minor things not completed. Our realtor says no big deal he will ask the builder warranty rep to fix them before final walk-through on 06/01
Mid day 05/31 ask our agent if builder rep completed the items, agent says he hadn't heard back from builder rep but its no problem, he will see the rep tomorrow morning 06/01 during final walk-through (we are across country and will not be present)
Final walk-through day. Everything but those 2 repairs are done, builder rep says he will have them done next day and our realtor says he will go out after they are done to confirm. This is where the disagreement starts
I call our realtor and said this is unacceptable, builder rep is not honoring final walk-through protocol, being nobody should have access after final walk-through and that builder didn't hold up their end of when repairs were agreed to be made and that he our agent isnt standing up for our interests
Our realtor says I'm overreacting, we need to give them leeway. At this point I lay the hammer down and tell our realtor that if repairs are not made today with you present during all repairs or if anyone other then him has acess to the property after today, final walk-through will need to be rescheduled and closing delayed.
At this point I am also openly questioning our realtors ethics and ask him if he is doing what's best in our interests, explain to him we are in this mess because of your date confusion and again he blows it off to I am overreacting
So I tell him straight forward, repairs done today in your presence or deal falls through and no one gets paid. Basically making me be the A hole to a builder rep who I am going to have to deal with for the next year
Disagreement did get pretty heated, I asked our agent if he works for us, if he is doing everything in our best interest, why isn't he standing up to the builder for not holding their end of the deal. I ask him if closing needs to be delayed and if I need a new agent in that time.
Well repairs were made that day and our realtor recorded them as they were being done and sent us the video, again making us seem like the unreasonable one
I don't know how much of above was relayed to the builder rep, because I text him and thank him for getting the repairs done and sorry about the problems and he never texts me back. So idk if that relationship is strained, I will need to deal with him with any warranty claims for the next year.
Anyways I am seriously confused on how to go forward with our realtor now. What sucks is we are closing 06/06 but probably won't move out there for another 3-4 weeks, so I was going to ask him to set the thermostat, shut off main water and just drive by the location every so often (realtor lives in same town so it's not a far drive). He came recommended and is supposed to be the go to realtor for big relocation moves like this but at this point he just made everything more stressful, got paper work mixed up early on, didn't verify info, we always had to be on top of him.
I haven't communicated with him since all that and even after getting dates wrong and prolonging everything he never not once apologized for his mistake
I'm still upset about how he handled our concerns and want to have another talk with him but not sure how that will play out
Thoughts, please

2023.06.02 16:17 FisherTompkins199 Would it be worth looking into a lawyer?

I'll try to be concise...
People are telling me I need a lawyer. is there any way to get the original doctor to amend their statement on the report regarding the reasons for my injury without a lawyer? Would doing that even help Sedgewick change their minds about denying my claim? I appreciate any help and advice people can give! I've never been in such a sticky situation before and I'm feeling on the verge of a panic attack. If I do end up needing a lawyer, how do I find one? I know next to nothing about legal problems and have never needed legal help before. I'm not sure if this is even the right "flair" THANK YOU SO MUCH ANYONE/EVERYONE.

2023.06.02 14:09 WarrenTheHero Campaign Recap: Three Years of Annihilation
I've been running ToA for a group of friends for about 3 years now and we're finally coming up on the final fight and I just wanted to gush a little about what they've been through during that time. We started before Covid on an every-other-week basis, took some time off at the beginning of the pandemic, and only in the last couple months did we switch to weekly, which is why it's taken us so long. It's also taken so long because I was committed to running by the book: survival checks each day to navigate, track rations, track bug repellant, random encounters, tropical storms. I also implemented Gritty Realism from the DMG, where resting overnight in the jungle was only a Short Rest and they'd have to dedicate an entire day of building out a semifortified camp to rest for the entire next day before breaking it down and continuing. It slowed down progress but I think overall the players like that they were forced to be survivalists.
Early on, the adventurers Nyx (tabaxi monk/warlock), Orynn (gnome wizard) and Ivory (tiefling bard) were hired by Syndra Sylvane to stop the Death Curse. This wouldn't turn out too well, as Nyx was slain in session three or so by a critical Yellow Musk Creeper hit. The party, now featuring human archer-warlock Folsom, hired out the guides River and Flask to explore Camp Righteous, and hired some Flaming Fist soldiers (Gwen and Jean) to delve into the jungle again, finding the goblin city of Yellyark along the way, wherein Gwen barely held the line against the Goblin Boss chieftain and established herself as a badass, before the party yeeted (yote?) the city far into the jungle, but not before acquiring an amulet which they subsequently matched with its Shield Guardian.
The party's next expedition was inspired by a seer in Port Nyanzaru, who told Folsom to seek the sage of Orolunga. They were joined by Inete, who wanted the party to take her to the Aldani Basin to pursue visions of sinister wizards there. They hired Azaka Stormfang to guide them, on the condition that they first stop by the Firefinger to recover her lost artifact, a nearly fatal encounter that included Ivory breaking a leg as he fell from partway up the tower. From there, they met Artus Cimber also on his way to Orolunga, but parted ways afterwards as they headed to the Aldani Basin, briefly meeting Valindra Shadowmantle in the floating Heart of Ubtao where they say from a distance a wrecked skyship. After rescuing the crew of the Star Goddess, they came across and saved another adventuring party, led by a wealthy but not-suited-for-a-jungle mage named Lucas. Taking on all of these extra adventurers strained their supplies to the limit, and it was only through Folsom's foraging that they managed to avoid starvation on their way back to the Port. They also encountered Camp Vengeance, but when forced into service by the master of the camp, the party used Lucas's magical might to decimate the camp before fleeing.
In the city, Lucas told them of his quest to map out routes to Orolunga and Nangalore. Having already mapped out Orolunga, they agreed to find a route to Nangalore for him while he stayed in the port and finalized the deal and bought supplies. Heading into the jungle again, with Inete joining them as her relationship with Orynn slowly grew, the party met a Shadar-Kai Barbarian named Cormag as he was fleeing a T-Rex, and he joined them on thier way to Nangalore. However, Zalkore proved a terrible threat, and petrified both Cormag and Folsom. In the aftermath of the battle against the Medusa, Cormag's sister Amasha, led by the lizardfolk ranger Qyzen Fess, arrived, just barely too late for the siblings to reconnect. The party found their way to Kir Sabal, where they defended the inhabitants from Gargoyles and used the Dance of the Seven Winds to return to Port Nyanzaru.
In the port, they met with the dwarven guide Musharib who offered to take them to his ancestral home of Hrakhammar, offering some of the forge's riches if they help him rid it of the fire newt threat within. They made a deal with their friend Lucas to meet them in Shilku Bay after a few weeks and set off, eventually freeing Hrakhammar for the Albino Dwarves, allowing them to once more establish a proper community on the peninsula.
They met Lucas and his new ship in Shilku Bay to return to Nyanzaru, where they decided to finally use the knowledge gained at Orolunga to find Omu and stop the Death Curse. It was during this time that Orynn decided to retire from adventuring life; the stresses and trauma he suffered in the jungle too much for the poor gnome, he sought therapy and a quieter life with his now-official girlfriend Inete. Similarly, Amasha decided to stay in the city to research ways to un-petrify her brother. To replace them, Lucas hired two new crew members: Lucky In the Dark, a tabaxi swashbuckler, and Tiger's Eye, an elderly Dwarven Sorcerer. Their names never got confusing, I promise. They were also approached by a young half-elf calling herself Xandala, hoping the party might take her to reunite with her father Artus Cimber, if they ever came across him. Sailing down to Shilku Bay once more, their ship was attacked and boarded by pirates, whose storm-mage thwarted Tiger's Eye's long-range fireballs. In the brawl that ensued, Lucky was able to best Captain Laskilar in a (mostly) one-on-one duel, claiming his magical cape for himself. It was not very long after arriving in Shilku Bay that the party, with the information from Saja N'Baza of Orolunga that they discovered the grand ruined capital city: Omu. Now knowing were to go, they returned to Port Nyanzaru for the last time to resupply before venturing into the heart of evil.
This is when Ivory finally departed the group as well, though their friend from the mainland, a Travel-Domain Cleric called Ezra, was in town and recommended to join the expedition to avenge her dog who was slain by the Death Curse. Lucas also hired an additional healer, a priest of Torm named Undril Silvertusk. They were once again accosted as they sailed south, by Captain Al-Saryak, defeating him and his crew as well. During this time, Lucas and Xandala also began to grow close. Traveling across the Valley of Lost Honor, they were scouted and chased by Tsindelor, the Red Dragon of Wyrmheart Mine, and Lucas was forced to offer it all of his gold and treasure to appease it so they could escape.
Omu was difficult. They me a wily old scribe, abandoned by his former employers, named Orvex, and using his knowledge began to slowly conquer various puzzles and traps across the city, collecting Puzzle Cubes for an unknown purpose. This conflict soon put them at odds with a Red Wizard, and while he was slain, he promised the group there more of his people who would crush them. They also had several close encounters with a vast beast, called the King of Feathers, and before long knew they had to hunt him down or be hunted themselves. They confronted him at his amphitheater lair, where they found the rest of the Red Wizards were also trying to slay the magical dinosaur. Rather than putting their differences aside, a great three-sided melee broke out between the party, the Wizards, and the King, eventually leaving the party as the last ones standing. However, Tiger's Eye's heart began to give out, and he returned to the ship in Shilku Bay. It was during these explorations of Omu that an Assassin Vine struck an isolated party member, capturing and killing the beloved Flaming Fist Gwen, who had been with the part for so long. They also found a den of Kobolds under the marketplace, slaying all but one, and telling the survivor that his people were "based" before forcibly recruiting him into the party. Snirbo the Kobold would be given lessons from Lucky on the basics of swordplay, though he was never very good at it. After taking control of the Grung tribe at Nangnang's Shrine, the party found a human knight, ensorcelled by a Nyanzaru guide; a Yuan-Ti in disguise. After being freed, Gilderoy Gleamleaf opted to join the party in their quest, as it was the same as his own: destroy the Soul Monger and end the Death Curse.
In time, they found their way into the back entrance of the Fane of the Night Serpent, the home of the Yuan-Ti of Chult and the lair of the warlord Ras Nsi. The party launched several expeditions into the temple, slaying snakes and freeing prisoners. Ezra and Qyzen soon realized there were too many prisoners to accompany them, but they would be unable to fend for themselves, and escorted them back to the ship. Among the prisoners, two were capable combatants, a Goliath infused with the ancient powers of his giantkin people named Manuyemo, and an elf Chronurgist Wizard named Osmanthus. The expeditions in and out of the Fane were at times disastrous, with both Osmanthus and Undril being captured, and Snirbo being turned to stone, but after Manu was able to beat the Yaun-Ti champion Sekelok, not very many of the remaining Yuan-Ti were serious threats, beyond their ability to consistently Suggest Gilderoy. Within the Fane, the party found a gravely wounded and misbegotten Artus Cimber and his friend Dragonbait, both robbed of their gear including the legendary Ring of Winter. The final confrontation with Ras Nsi, the new wielder of the Ring, was incredibly difficult, as he was able to use the Ring's Wall of Ice to isolate party members to strike with his magical sword. After some very close calls, he was forced to retreat through a teleportation pad. Learning how the pads functioned, several party members were teleported to random parts of the dungeon, before Lucas accidentally found himself face-to-face with the warlord. The sounds of the fight that followed drew the party to Ras Nsi's hidden chambers, where in the moment of all involved being severely weakened, Xandala finally sprung her trap, *Fireball*ing the room to claim the Ring for herself. Unfortunately, it wasn't quite enough power, and some party members survived to stop her and save their friends from bleeding out.
Opting for mercy for this person they thought was their friend, they let Xandala live, though this far south, she had no choice but to continue to assist the party, or else brave the jungle alone and surely die. As various other teammates handled the Ring, they were all tempted to violence until it found itself back within Artus's grasp. As thanks for freeing him and Dragonbait and returning the Ring, he decided to help the party through the upcoming Tomb of the Nine Gods.
With all Puzzle Cubes from the Red Wizards and Ras Nsi in hand, the party finally entered the Tomb of Annihilation.
It was not easy. Artus became cursed very early on, removing his ability to regain hit points and slowly sapping his life, forcing him to stay out of most fights as the party battled Tomb Guardians and Dwarf-Wights. They found the administration office of the Tomb run by Withers, who was unable to escape and slain, Gilderoy claiming his amulet.
While no part of the Tomb was pleasant, the first tragedy of the Tomb was during the fight against the invisible beholder Belchorz, who turned Lucas to stone. This was not easy for the group, and especially not for Xandala. It was also around this time that the party started suffering nightmares in the Tomb, even protected by Tiny Hut spells, with some of them losing maximum HP and unable to recover during Long Rests. The second tragedy was on a lower level, when Gilderoy entered a secret room and snuffed out a candle. He was teleported out of the room and never seen again, though we know he was ground to nothingness along with all he was wearing and carrying.
Pressing on, the party found a throne Room and a hidden sarcophogus with a fine necklace atop it. Giving the necklace to Jean to appease the spirit of Nangnang possessing him, he put it on, activating its curse and becoming the center of an 8th-level *Fireball,* disintegrating immediately and awakening the Zombie T-Rex hidden below the room. After slaying the beast, it disgorged a curious sight: A spore-infested Firbolg calling itself Cousin Klemba, who had been disintigrated in the tomb years earlier, but by a 1-in-a-billion magical chance, its spores managed to survive and reconstitute inside the flowery gut fauna of the T-Rex. Activating the second trap in Napaka's sarcophogus room really put a damper on the party's mood, and they decided to avoid all distractions and recover the last of the Skeleton Keys without exploring any more rooms than strictly necessary.
At the bottom of the Tomb, they finally came head-to-head with the Hags who had been tormenting them: the Sewn Sisters Baggy Nanna, Peggy Deadbells, and Widow Groat, each accompanied by two Wraiths. The fight was brutal, perhaps the most difficult so far, as the Hags used very effective Hold Person spells to lock down the gorup as the Wraiths began to critically hit them, reducing max HP and inflicting massive damage. All the while, the Hags were able to counter most of the party's spells while phasing in and out of the Ethereal. Widow Groat even managed to acquire one of the Skeleton Keys, but was slain by Keshma al-Wazir, a dao genie that was indebted to the party after being freed by them, before Groat could escape to the Ethereal plane.
Now, with all of the Hags dead, the party might be able to have their first complete and uninterrupted Long Rest in the Tomb, before opening the Skeleton Gate and confronting, at long last, the Soul Monger.
This Sunday, we're meeting in person again for the finale. I've been constructing a 3D version of the final fight, and a custom scuplt of the Atropal inspired by ideas on this sub. I'm gonna kill them all.
