I recently moved to the Great Lakes, and there are a LOT of things in this environment that my immune system does not like. I have had adverse reactions to poison ivy, chiggars, stinging nettle, and mosquitos that have covered my skin in welts.
I understand that this is the result of my immune system reacting to a foreign chemical introduced into the body. But what I don't understand is why? The oil from poison ivy isn't a virus or an infections agent. So why does the immune system attack it?
Are these the results of a defect in our immune system, or does the body attack these substances and the cells they encounter to prevent a larger problem?
PS: NOT medical advice, I have a Dr, my symptoms are under control, I'm not in danger of anaphylactic shock or anything like that. Just VERY uncomfortable.
Hell, I don't think the Bulbasaur line should've been Poison to begin with, as opposed to the Gastly line where it makes sense. However, the Gastly line learns damaging Dark moves, so maybe Gengar could've become Ghost/Dark in Gen 2 (granted, it probably would've been extremely broken). I don't know, it's such a small thing but it just kinda bothers me.
I have a question that no one seems to have an answer for. We all know Cayde's weapon of choice was Ace of Spades. Ikora Rey's is Invective and a Nova bomb. Ana's is Polaris Lance. Saint-14 and so on. What the heck is Zavala's? 🤷🏽♂️
You have the gutter (not that bad) black gultch (a little worse but just keep moving) and earthern peak, but non of these insult my free time by making me walk at ONE MILE AN HOUR, plus all those areas are accessible after getting easy supply of green moss clump, right?
Plus we don't have DS3 jumping grus. Good god those are even worse than the skeleton dogs of DS1 catacombs...
Ok it's really hard for me to share this, but I really need to get it out there to check if I'm going insane. I've got nobody in my life to talk to about this, and if I did it would always find it's way back to my mom. she's just CAN NOT find out that I'm talking about this to anyone. I'm really scared and I don't know what to do.
Background story: I've never had a good relationship with my parents, but it got particularly bad when I started puberty. My mental health started to worsen rapidly, leading me to get hospitalized multiple times. When I was 14 I pleaded to get taken out of their home because I simply couldn't take any of it anymore. I was placed into a group home for young girls and started to get way better when I was there. Even though I never felt wanted or welcomed at home my mom always demanded I move back home, but I never agreed. She always tried to influence me as much as possible and I only kept in contact with her because I didn't want to lose my siblings. Fast for... keep reading on reddit ➡
so why not post our highest dark orb damages?
I used to think that my mom was the better parent, but now I realize that she's more emotionally manipulative and covertly toxic. At least my dad can be somewhat reasonable if he's able to talk things out. He actually listens to me and asks my opinion on things I have experience with. He's still shitty for his misogynistic and racist attitudes though. My mom expects blind obedience and respect just because I'm her child. We had an argument over her poor parenting and how differently she treats me and my sibling. She ended up saying she'll poison my food and that she wished she never gave birth to me. Then she started guilt tripping me for how much I costed her and how ungrateful I am.
Why do Asian parents always go to the extremes? It's either all or nothing for them. Either I give them blind obedience or I'm a disrespectful, selfish child. Either I am completely independent or completely dependent. According to her, I'm the one with all the issues. I'm the reason why she has so many... keep reading on reddit ➡
Pretty much what the title says. I don't want to talk too much so this isn't tiring for you guys but I'm in serious need of advice.
To give you a brief explanation, I've been in and out of the hospital many times in my life. So I've always felt guilty about being a sick child and I admit that because of that I denied to myself a lot of the things that my mother did that were clearly suspicious (like being way too jealous, invasive, manipulative).
So I failed to not realize it before but this time because of Covid I'm quarantined with her after being away for a long time (she convinced me to cancel my lease at my place because we don't know how long the pandemic will last) and I started feeling sick like I used to before moving out. At first I thought it was Corona or something but after one afternoon where she tried to punch me in the face and I barely blocked it (not out of shock, I was too slow to move and I'm trained in martial arts and I'm a girl but she's way smaller than me).... keep reading on reddit ➡
I bought this G.N.O.M.E foundation. Upon opening it, I gazed upon its unbent smoothness, my eyes glistening with tears brought on by its beautiful luster.
I needed to taste it.
I dove my tongue deep into its liquid goodness, smearing it on my face. I couldn’t stop. As my lips began to crack and my throat began to bleed, I kept diving deeper and deeper into the jar, until I could no longer breathe.
It was transcendent, exhilarating, magical. Would repurchase.
Sam Smith, the author of “The Jordan Rules” and the former Chicago Tribune writer, poked some holes in the Michael Jordan documentary, as well. He said the notion Grant was his only source in the book was false and also laughed at the idea Jordan presented that himself, Scottie Pippen, Dennis Rodman and Phil Jackson would all have come back on one-year deals for the 1998-99 season had owner Jerry Reinsdorf made them offers. Jordan instead retired and the Bulls rid themselves of their main championship pieces, entering a rebuild that went on for almost a decade.
“That was a complete and blatant lie by Michael,” Smith said Thursday on 95.7 The Game. “There were several things in the documentary that I saw, I would know, that he made up or he lied about. They weren’t major things, but it was like when a TV movie comes on and t... keep reading on reddit ➡
After the arcanist fled from the castle and even after the Maer’s general(sorry I’m blanking in names) burned him in the barn, we never really found out the motive behind it.
The first thing that caught my attention was that his graphics are very low, I don't think it is possible to get your game look like that from Valorant's own settings. But the most striking thing is that he can clearly see through his poison clouds. Is this some kind of a mod? Does anyone know?
Now that we're we're kicking off summer, when you're out hiking, camping, working in the yard, etc. It is good to know how to spot poison ivy leaves to avoid or remove if necessary. Many people I talk to can't tell the difference between poison ivy and other plants that are harmless. Most people confuse or lump creeper ivy (has five narrow leaves) in with poison ivy. Creeper ivy (not pictured) is harmless but tends to grow near or with poison ivy vines; this is why it is good to be on the look-out for poison ivy if you see it. One of the plants that have leaves most identical to poison ivy is the Box Elder Maple. These leaves tend to be lighter green in color compared to most poison ivy leaves but younger poison ivy leaves can have the same shade of green. The easiest way to tell the difference between a harmless Box Elder Maple and poison ivy is that the leaves grow off of the stem symmetrically. (see the blue circle in the image) Poison ivy leaves always grow one after the othe... keep reading on reddit ➡
I had this idea to use arcanist brands to cast firestorm to proc hundreds of of poisons recently...resulting in 1 minute+ poisons. (Using added phys to spell jewels). how? With assassins noxious strikes, you get 5% increased poison duration per poison you inflicted recently. And with a 1 minute duration, you can get thousands of poisons onto an enemy. You can then 1 shot any boss with viper strike + the growing agony jewel. (the agony jewel gives 2% increased dmg per poison on the enemy.)
We know this doesn't work with mines and totems, because mines and totems are the caster, not you. But for some reason, it doesn't work with arcanist brands either. no matter how many you stack, poison lasts only 2 seconds.
It's SUPPOSED to work though, seeing as you can gain power charges with arcanist brands and not mines/totems. Is this a bug, or a pre-nerf?
bye bye 1 shot dreams.
Just a fun fact I noticed while looking at monsters online!
While it's true a lot of high level CR stuff is immune to poison, it's only 4 monster types that it's commonly found. Constructs, elementals, fiends, and undead.
Here are some examples of things not immune, or even resistant, to poison damage:
Ancient Gold and Ancient Red Dragons, Astral Dreadnaughts, Drow Matron Mothers, Empyreans, Frost Worms, Krakens, Tromokratis.
Here is how many creatures are actually immune to poison:
Creature Type|Immune to Poison|Total :|:|: Aberrations | 2 | 92 Beasts | 2 | 166 Celestials | 5 | 22 Constructs | 100 | 136 Dragons | 6 | 70 Elementals | 45 | 58 Fey | 5 | 45 Fiends | 127 | 144 Giants | 3 | 89 Humanoids* | 18 | 584 Monstrosities | 24 | 188 Oozes | 1 | 24 Plants | 3 | 40 Undead | 126 | 143
* = This includes a lot of named NPCs, so consider this an outlier.
Just a fun fact!
FAIR's explanation is that Mark 16:9-20 may have actually been from a separate, independent witness. So even if Mark didn't write it, someone was inspired to include it to make Mark's gospel more whole. If it really is a later interpolation, FAIR moves down the algorithm to explanation B: Moroni is simply writing down what Jesus told the Nephites, and Jesus can say whatever he wants, however he wants!
"Thus, the authenticity of the words of Jesus in Mormon 9:22-25 is not ultimately dependent on the authenticity of the "long ending" of Mark. Indeed, belief in the authenticity of these words in the ending of Mark may, on the other hand, benefit from the testimony of the Book of Mormon."
See? No significant problem for the Book of Mormon here! On the contrary, Latter-day Saints can now be assured of the authenticity of the later ending of Mark! The Book of Mormon is true!
