We in the west are used to the fact that we can have a lot of things ordered alphabetically, like the names of the contacts in our address book, or the words in a dictionary. I's not too hard to remember the order of 26 letters. But if all you have are basically tens of thousands of symbols for words, how does that work?
Hello autists. Its times like these when i feel it’s important to give back to the community, especially in such hard times.
I highly highly encourage you to give back to the world and support each other, given how hard this past year has been on everyone, and highly encourage you to donate even a small percentage of whatever wins you have to some form of charitable organisation once this squeeze is squozed. Its better off helping the world than sitting in some suit’s bank account upon his throne of gold.
Here you can find and support foodbanks to help support your local community
Here is a list of the wikipedia pages for non profit organisations based in WSB-centric countries
Please donate what you can, its times like these when people like this have been left sidelined by the events over the past year, and I have loved seeing people being so generous and donating to all kinds of different causes. The purpose of this thread is for people to be a bit more able to navigate to what they feel they want to support.
Feel free to in... keep reading on reddit ➡

My wife and I are looking for an old looking book (think necronomicon) with pictures and information about anything from ghosts and demons to eldritch gods and other scary monsters. Can’t seem to find anything online. Something that would look like it’s really old.
I appreciate any help!🧛🏻🧟♂️🧚🏿🧝🏼♂️🦇
I recently came across a great set of World Book encyclopedias from the 70’s that I couldn’t pass up. I was mentioning my find to a Fox News/Newsmax watching, election fraud believing, Trump supporting relative when they all of a sudden got very serious and told me I needed to keep the books safe so “They” don’t burn them.
After my brain finished scrambling to process this WTF comment, I got it out of my relative that apparently Biden and “The Socialists” are going to start going around burning history books so that they can rewrite history. My relative urged me a few more times to make sure to keep the encyclopedias safe.
I try to keep up with what the far right media is saying since this is not my only FoxBrain relative, but I had never heard this idea before. Has anyone else run across this? Any idea where they might have heard it?
Your sales team can't convince people to purchase.
Prospects take their own decisions through what they see, read, and hear of your brand through Google.
SiriusDecisions claims at least 70% of consumers decide by themselves. Pardot states that 72% of buyers head to Google to research an upcoming purchase. Others claim that around 57% of people won't need to interact with a company to decide. While the percentage might change, the common denominator is that most of the purchase decisions happen without direct interaction between a brand and a potential customer.
People realize they have a problem. So they grab their phone and look for a solution. Sometimes, they don't even know they have a problem. And while it might take some time to define it, they always do.
In today's world, you have one mission: Be the brand that solves or helps people define a problem.
Consumers want to direct the process, or at least control a portion of it.
Control means having a word on the outcome and where it leads. It suggests freedom to choose the road and pace.
Giving our customers control doesn't imply separating ourselves from potential customers. It means reframing how we act. It's a call to place our knowledge as a guide in our customer's journey and not as a way to convince non-believers.
Guides place their customer's needs on top of theirs.
If their customers don't know a term, they define it. They debunk industry myths, defeat well-known objections and solve all questions.
As long as it makes the customer's journey better—educating around the sales process or solving a doubt better than anyone else—Writing about it is worth the trouble.
Car sellers fail because they are self-centered. They focus on commissions, not on the customer.
Because of this, customers swim in a pool of fear. Fear of the wrong choice, the existence of a better alternative, or overspending.
Content eliminates all of these fears:
Content makes us trustworthy. It shows people that we focus on them and that we don't care about exposing our weaknesses as long as we help with their purchase decision.
If seeing your price scares a lead, well-done. You just saved your team from an unqualified one. Now, they can use that time to talk... keep reading on reddit ➡
The Legend of Zelda Encyclopedia is full or errors, contradictions and is terrible and should be non-canon.
My least favorite new statement made is that "Termina is a dream-world created by Skull Kid" statement. It doesn't make sense, this has never even been a thing for the 20 years MM has been out. No mention in game or out. Termina's origins are partially explained in-game and in instruction booklets and is always referred to as a "parallel world."
This book was written by no one high up in Nintendo and no one who worked on MM seemed to even work on the book. This book is loaded with formatting and spellinh errors and even factual errors such as stating that Hyrule Castle Town appeared in MM and also stating that Romani Ranch is in Hyrule. It also says things like the Kokiri were originally Hylians that moved into the forest (which doesn't even make sense and directly contradicts in-game dialogue from OOT.)
It's terrible glorified fanfiction and the fact that different Zelda wikis declare it as canon is sad.
