[Review] Yet Another Saint Laurent Small Puffer Black w/ BHW from Non-TS Koko plus a little self- flagellation

Background: I want to straight away address the fact that I made a rookie mistake-- I learned AFTER my order was placed, that purchasing from IG is generally a no-no. I’ve ordered plenty of accessories (belts, cardholders) from IG sellers and have been perfectly satisfied, but this is my first BAG purchase from IG and I now know that buying from IG comes at a premium. So needless to say - I have had my buttcheeks clenched for over 3 weeks waiting to see what I actually spent my money on. I may have woken up in a cold sweat a few nights terrified that I had just dropped a bunch of money and would be sent a budget puffer bag.

I have been mulling over the small Saint Laurent LouLou Puffer with black hardware for a year. A YEAR! It was literally a year to the date between when I initially reached out to KoKo for pricing and when I finally pulled the trigger to buy. I wanted to go authentic but the thought of paying $2150 USD (I think it was $1950 when I first became obsessed with it) was making me queasy, like I literally could not do it. Plus, I generally prefer structured bags so I didn’t think spending that kind of money on a “fun squish bag” made much sense. I decided to take the monies I had been saving to go the rep route and use the rest of the money for other goodies. SO... I went back to my IG convo with Koko to start the process officially.

  • Disclosure - I was not incentivized in any way to provide this review.
  • Seller Name: Koko
  • Seller contact info: Shopkokolux on IG
  • Price of item(s): $336 USD all in. includes 5% transaction fee and EMS shipping (after reading others reviews of the Small puffer I realize that Koko is a little more expensive than TS)
  • Payment method: Paypal friends and family
  • Price of shipping and carrier: I’m sorry, I didn't ask for a breakdown. I only asked for the “all in” price. Another noob mistake.
  • Order timeline:
    • Jan 21 2021- went back to Koko for the first time since my initial inquiry a year ago and told her I was ready to move forward.
    • Jan 21 2021 - Paid via PP FF
    • Jan 26 2021 - received PSP and video
    • Jan 28 2021 - received EMS tracking info
    • Feb 17 2021 - after stalking EMS tracking for weeks, there is finally movement…..not on the EMS website but on USPS. I plugged the EMS tracking number into USPS and it says it will be delivered on Feb 17.
    • Feb 17 2021 - USPS says it has been delivered. Must RUN home from work RIGHT now.

On to the review!

Why most Advice is Useless and Reading Entrepreneurial "Success Stories" is Toxic Self-Flagellation

Hey Folks,

I'm an small business owner who has been reading this and other biz reddits for a while, and I've been getting pretty irritated by all the well-meaning but useless advice and especially the context-free, toxic success stories that make people feel worse rather than better for reading them.

This is a bit of a rant, but I think that many of you might feel similarly, and might sympathize.

Here's the thing:

ALMOST ALL ADVICE IS COMPLETELY USELESS

To be clear, advice is any kind of suggestions that purports to lay out a path to success in a complex domain (such as business, relationships, etc).

Advice usually comes in the form of:

>"You should do <X> (even though I don't know much about it)", or - in a stronger form - "I did <X> and it worked for me, so you should do it too".

To be clear, advice is not the same as principles. Principles are generally useful guidelines, such as "build good relationships with people you work with". Advice suggests specific courses of action that may or may not make sense, such as "hug every person you meet."

Advice is also not the same as a "how to" solution to a specific problem. If you ask someone knowledgeable "how to" change a tire, build a piece of furniture, or set up a payment system, and follow the instructions, you will, more likely than not, end up accomplishing what you set out to do.

If, on the other hand, you've ever followed someone's "advice" on how to be successful, tried to duplicate what a successful person did, or, god forbid, bought one of those "get rich by following my plan" programs.. you already know that except for cases of blind luck, it just about NEVER works out as you expect.

This is because success in business is so complicated and has so many variables, that even if the person giving you said advice isn't trying to scam you by selling you a B.S. program, just about everything about the advice giver's circumstances and your circumstances will be different, so following the steps that they lay out that worked for them can't possibly work out the same way for you.

  • Your geography is different
  • Your skills are different
  • Your resources are different
  • Your connections are different

.. basically everything about the world is different, so how is doing the same thing going to get the same result? It's almost certainly will not!

The only kind of advice that's actually useful is NEGATIVE advice, in the form of:

>BE CAREFULL OF or DON'T DO <X&gt

Can I participate in self flagellation as an Airman?

We had a down day where we all get together and PT. My flight decided on going to the pool on base, cool no worries. I had some marks from flagellation on my back and my supervisor saw. He asked what it was about, I explained its purely a religious thing, and now he says we are going to make a trip to MH. Am I in the wrong here?

Beginning to feel like politics is self flagellation

I've had this thought for a while, and it's something I can't really shake. I feel like the culture of keeping up with political news is honestly just harmful, particularly if you are 1) not in a position to change anything, 2) not going to change anything. If ultimately, your political activism ends with the most basic step of voting (which is what most people do), there's not really any point in constantly being under siege about how the world is ending.

After this election a big part of me just wants to zone out because if Biden wins the left is ultimately canned. Like I've gone to protests and now am trying to find decent political organizations to get involved with but I'm already starting to feel like it's a lost cause.

I graduate college in a year and I'll be left trying to find a job in a tanking economy. I won't be able to really run for any offices for another 3 years after that. I just can't really stop thinking about how little control I have over politics compared to how much of my time is spent being invested in it. It's not like I don't have hobbies or anything to keep me occupied, it's just for some reason politics is both cathartic and depressingly nihilistic at the same time which is a deadly combo.

After this election I feel like I'm probably just gonna disconnect from politics as much as I can.

Flagellation

So I know Blizzard said you shouldn't have to feel like you'd made a mistake with your covenant choice... But I really can't help but feel like I did.

I chose Venthyr because I like the armour and zone, but I really feel like I want to change because Flagellation just feels so bad to use, especially in PvP - So much so that I just don't use it in PvP at all because it feels like a waste of 2 GCD's

Is it just me or does Flagellation genuinely just suck butts?

Flagellation in Islam

Is there any evidence of support of beating your chest when mourning and self flagellation in Islam? Sunnis says that beating yourself is haram because your supposed to take care of your body.

Are there any events in history or in the Qur'an that talks about flagellation about a prophet? Like did Christians beat their chest too when Prophet Isa passed away? Were there other forms of mourning/flagellation for a important character in Islam?

Did any prophet hurt themselves for someone else?

Another HUNNID! 100 x Kaisan Runs for science! (and self flagellation)

ZERO double Rare MI folks, pack it up and go home

Hello! I did not hate myself enough so I decided on another 100 Kaisan the Eldritch Scion runs.

Begginer questions:

What is a "Kaisan"?

He is a big chonker Nemesis spawn. He can spawn once you get Nemesis negative reputation with Eldritch Horrors (most of the enemies in Forgotten Gods qualify). He is wanted for his +1 to all skills amulet, which has 2 versions. Burning Eye (HP) and Eldritch Eye (which has reduced Stun, Freeze and Petrify duration). Normally, the Burning Eye is a lot better for most builds.

Where can I find him?

He has 29 spots in which he can spawn.

I just got Nemesis reputation. Can he spawn now?

YES! I was surprised but as soon as you get that Nemesis rep, if there is a SINGLE spot left open, he will spawn there in the same game session.

How do Nemesis spawns work?

The game checks to see if you are in a certain spot where the Nemesis should spawn. Then you have a chance to have him appear once you are there. The Nemesis DOES NOT SPAWN RANDOMLY when you load the game. It is a location-to-location system. In other words you can skip shitty spawns (for example inside Chtonic Rifts, those red portals, for Chtonic Nemesis) and just look around regular areas first. In Kaisan's case, he has a linear path.

What route did you take?

Ruins of Abyd portal - > walk back to Temple of Ateph. Then simply go through all the temples in and out and continue along the only path, towards Tomb of the Eldritch Sun. He has spawn points even as close as the Korvaak boss room (not inside, but right next to it).

What can I find on this path?

Many MIs, a couple of bosses, Treasure Troves and Korvan Secret Chests (containing Celestial Essence, an ingredient necessary to fight an even tougher boss, the Celestial Callagadra). The MIs include Halberds, we have caster weapons, summoner weapons, caster and summoner off-hands, basically a LOT of stuff that can be decent.

Advance player statistics:

0 double Rare Affix Kaisan's Eye.

Actual loot excluding items:

4 Korvan Secret Chests so far, didn't look for them specifically

Trash Double Rare (not an MI base):

I’ve never felt anything like this before. It’s painful but SO freeing and refreshing.
