Does anyone else have moments of being hyper aware of your existence, disassociating and questioning the purpose, of anything and everything?

Like, you'll just be sitting watching TV, or playing a game. Then the next minute you question "Why am I doing this, why am I starting at this screen, why is this fun?" In a sense, the thought scares you, because your brain struggles to find an acceptable answer.

Edit - I have saw some people mention lack of purpose, no point in it all. I have no qualifications, and can only speak from my own personal experience. But I dove deep enough to reach that Abyss. Thats when I came to the conclusion, there are people out there who live in a totally different world. It's helping and being there for them, that is a worthy purpose. In that, if I'm lucky, I may find my own happiness.

Edit 2- I've just woken up to a fuck tonne of replies, so I just want to make a general edit: I'm really happy a lot of you have realised you aren't alone, that it's a common occurrence of varying degree. It's an absolutely humane thought to have. The conversations have been very constructive, positive and helpful. But I have to add, if this is something that has been seriously detrimental to your health, please speak to someone. You deserve to be happy, and there is always a solution.

This includes those dryer sheets. That’s all I got, I ain’t no scientist

Edit: For those worried about clothes coming out static-y, the culprit might be that you’re putting your clothes in the dryer for too long or too high of heat. Try less heat or less time:)

Search and dive team Adventures With Purpose announces that they have recovered the remains of Tammy Goff, missing from Great Falls, Montana since July 2018

59-year-old Tamara "Tammy" Goff disappeared from Great Falls, Montana on July 12, 2018. According to her husband, Bob, Tammy took their dog Sadie and left home in her black Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck, presumably to care for the elderly cat that still lived at his recently deceased father's home in southern Great Falls. Tammy was never heard from again.

Bob tried to call her cell phone about 90 minutes after she left, but got no reply. Growing concerned, he went to his father's home to see if she was there, only to discover that his father's cat was also missing. According to The Charley Project, the cat has never been found, and it is unclear if its disappearance has anything to do with Tammy's.

The next day, Sadie was found alone at a location on Hawk Drive, which runs mostly parallel to the Missouri River about four miles south of Great Falls. Different witnesses reported seeing the dog wet and pacing nervously on either side of the river. There was no sign of Tammy or her car at the scene.

Tammy's family has spent much of the last three years looking for her. Bob, who was married to her for over 40 years, went so far as to purchase a drone to scan the area for any spots where she could have wrecked without anyone noticing. Recently, he reached out to Adventures With Purpose, a search and dive team that runs a popular YouTube channel by the same name and has helped recover the bodies of about half a dozen missing persons who perished in their cars after driving into the water.

Today, Adventures With Purpose uploaded this video announcing that they have located a vehicle containing human remains in the Missouri River near Hawk Drive. The victim has not been formally identified yet, but an unnamed relative of Tammy's has told local media that the truck is identical to her Chevrolet Colorado.

If it's Tammy (and there's no reason to believe it isn't), this marks the ninth missing persons case solved by Adventures With Purpose. You might know them from this video that went viral not too long ago, where they found a car containing the body of missing teenager Nick Allen at the bottom of a lake in North Carolina. Thankfully, they were met with a much friendlier response from LE this time around than they got in the Allen case.

I’m pretty sure ArcSys made such harsh changes on purpose

There already seem to be a lot of complaints about the air movement changes for the new beta and while it is just the first day I think it’s also important to consider that ArcSys probably want to use this beta as a way to test the limits of our preferences.

Last beta it was pretty much a consensus that jumping was too strong so now they might be trying to see at what point air movement feels too restricted to us.

I know there may be arguments about how the changes could have been more intuitive or reasonable but I think it’s good that they do drastic/unreasonable changes now and change them based on our feedback rather than just limit testing at launch since now they should have an even clearer idea of what people want.

I’d like to know other people’s thoughts as well cause to me it feels like people are jumping the gun too quick but I could also just be assuming too much from ArcSys

Edit: Just wanted to add on that the point of this post (if it was unclear) is more to remind people that this is in fact a beta and not the final product. Based on the comments I’ve seen it just seemed like people were forgetting

Edit 2: To be even more clear, this is directed towards the people I see acting as if the changes are permanent rather than giving ArcSys a chance to listen to feedback again. I didn’t mean to sound as if people should stop complaining since our complaints are the only way they will know what we want

Stormtrooper armor is fine for its intended purpose

In Rebels, Rex comments proudly that Phase I armor is the best and disparages the inability of stormtrooper armor to stop a blaster bolt. This is also why Rex stuck with Phase I instead of Phase II armor.

But here’s the thing: stopping a blaster bolt is not that important. In real life, US IOTV armor isn’t designed to withstand a direct shot to the chest either (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Improved_Outer_Tactical_Vest?wprov=sfti1). What’s really important is being able to absorb fragmentation blasts and shrapnel. In World War II in small arms fire only accounted for 33% of deaths in the Pacific Theater and 20% in North Africa (https://history.amedd.army.mil/booksdocs/wwii/woundblstcs/chapter1.htm#table14). In the 1985 Israel-Lebanon war, small arms only accounted for 11.6% of casualties (https://academic.oup.com/milmed/advance-article/doi/10.1093/milmed/usab108/6179198). Ever since World War I, the purpose of tactical body armor has been essentially to absorb fragmentation blasts, even the famous Stahlhelm was not designed to block a bullet. In Star Wars, as we can see at Mimban for example, artillery fire and orbital bombardment are so frequently used that this skewing of casualties towards artillery is probably even more the case. Mobility and lightness are important enough that stopping a bullet just isn’t the main consideration in armor design. And in Star Wars, we have reason to believe that phase I armor was less mobile than its successors (look at the space around the joints, for example).

So the meme about stormtrooper armor being ineffective makes no sense. Yes, it’s ineffective against small arms fire and melee weapons. But that’s not its intended purpose. It’s supposed to be cringey that Mandos Juggernaut trooper armor can’t take a stick to the arm, but that’s completely normal. If mando were wearing an IOTV he’d also not be able to take a hit to the arm.

TLDR: We need to stop judging stormtrooper armor out of context and based on threats it’s not designed to counter

For me the worst part about getting to know someone when it doesn't go anywhere, are all the little details about them left over in your head with no purpose and nowhere to go

I spent a couple of months in lockdown talking to someone, texting every day etc and all that stuff. Our planned date after restrictions started to ease never happened, I guess she lost interest or something which sucks, but whatever... these things happen.

But after spending so much time talking to someone I'm left with all the stuff we talked about coming to an abrupt end. The jokes/references we'd make, mutual interests, conversation topics we'd get into, pictures we'd send... it all just feels unfinished. Like all those messages and the time getting to know each other all ending up being for nothing.

It's like I know loads about this person, but now I don't know them at all..?

Anyone else feel that those kind of leftover artifacts are what makes it suck even more?

Don't award karma for MOON purposes to removed threads and comments within

Currently when a post is removed, the karma for that post and all the comments within is still counted towards MOON distribution calculations. The reason for this goes back to when we used to have meme weekends - we wanted people's karma to count even though all meme posts were removed on Sunday at midnight.

However, that has not been the case for many months now, and several people have pointed out that it doesn't really make sense for someone to get karma for posts that are removed, especially posts that are breaking the rules. So, in this poll we propose not counting karma from removed posts, for the post itself and for all the comments contained within. This would also affect comments removed in threads that are left up. Any karma from removed comments or posts would not be counted towards MOON distribution calculation.

This post would not affect deleted posts, only those removed by mods or reddit.

I am starting to get so pissed at these morons who come here to tell us that we don't understand how vaccines work and that the point of vaccines is not to make one immune but to make the symptoms less severe.

The Jedi Order’s purpose as β€œPeacekeepers of the Galaxy” became an impossible promise once they aligned with The Republic. Their biggest failure was to overlook that they chose a side against every unrepresented world in defense of democracy for some.

The Jedi Order would have evolved to a modern entity if they chose to stick by their mission statement and stay fundamentally neutral across the Galaxy. Staying neutral in a galactic community is much more difficult than assimilating into a part of the ruling body, but these tough conversations and choices would have forced evolution. Decisions could be made based more on the Jedi Code and morality, lifting the burden somewhat from the same outside political pressures to fit into society, and ultimately would have allowed for a much more adaptable, powerful, and Modern Jedi Order to survive much longer

Yes they would still have a moral obligation to intervene militarily to defend those opposed in individual conflicts. By clearly separating the political and religious arms of the Order from the military units, with clear checks and balances, this could have been done accomplished.

Also by progressing to allow experienced Jedi Knights and Masters to take up arms when they had a moral obligation to do so, and only sending peacekeeping forces when further assistance was necessary, the order would have far better represented the complex socioeconomic realities of the Galaxy.

The Order was was so scarred by the damage caused by some individual incidents of Fallen Jedi, notably Exar Kun, that the modern Grand Masters completely overlooked the damage they were causing to thence entire Order by stamping out any individuality. I mean.. Sifo-Dyas was thrown off the Council for informing them of the militarization of the Mid and Outer-Rim!

Darth Plagueis found this fatal flaw. He tested this theory with the Yinchorri Uprising and saw the Jedi had already chosen to defend the Core-World centric Republic. Their death sentence was already signed, all it took was the right demagogues and his Apprentice to choose the Cause of Death and date it.

The Jedi were taught it was shameful to question the ancient teaching and failed to evolve with the modern politics they themselves were a part of.. this is why I love when a young Caleb Dume asks β€œWhy?” padawans are chosen this certain way. He of course immediately is berated for questioning 1000s of years of tradition blah blah but he’s like β€˜No! I’m just asking how this was chosen as the best way’.. I enjoy this because Kanan evolved (not by pure choice of course) to be in my opinion the perfect modern Jedi. Practical, loving, moral and powerful. Maybe if the Jedi of the Republic Era though more about β€œWhy?, the Jedi O

The 900 damage cap on target dummies in the practice tool defeats the purpose of being able to change their health and resistance values

In case you didn't know, target dummies can only take up to 900 damage from any single instance of damage. You might initially think that this damage cap is simply 90% of their health since they start out with 1000 health, but no. Even if you increase the dummy's max health, they can still only take a max of 900 damage.

This becomes an issue when testing out a variety of champions, like champs with high single-hit damage (Nidalee, Veigar, Lux, Jhin, Draven, etc), and champs with high percent-health damage (Ornn, Brand, Varus, Kog'Maw, Elise, etc). Because of the cap, you can't test burst dmg against squishy targets, or percent health dmg against tanks. It defeats the purpose of a feature that was supposed to let you test a bigger variety of situations.

It also just takes away some of the fun, silly things you used to be able to do in the practice tool, like full AD Fiora doing 100% of the dummy's health as true dmg using her ult, or full AP Shen 3-shotting a dummy with his Q.

It is absolutely nuts that holodeck safety protocols can be disabled. This feature serves no purpose.

The absolute best possible outcome is that your transporter chief breaks his shoulder a bunch. The worst? Imagine if Professor Moriarty had figured out that Nicky the Nose's tommygun can kill. And could be filled with mini-nukes instead of bullets.

This feature serves no purpose. The holodeck is, allegedly, for relaxation and for training. The whole point of relaxing is that you aren't likely to die - and if almost dying is your idea of relaxing, the ships counselor needs to know about it. Likewise the whole reason that you train is so that you can safely expose someone to a stressful environment without killing them.

Starfleet crew instead have the ability to create an infinite amount of suffering at will. You cannot imperil your officers by letting them even accidentally expose themselves to injury in the holodeck. That's no way to run a peacekeeping armada.

Maybe you want to be able to feel the scrape of the mountainside on your knee, or catch a stun blast from a swamp monster and feel the effects. Fine - turn the safety protocols down, not off. I can increase the difficulty on a video game without actually giving the Brotherhood of Steel a live-fire gauss rifle. But with the holodeck... I can.

A manufacturer wouldn't make a car with a removable seatbelt, an airplane with detachable wings, or a transporter with a "goopify occupant" command. A holodeck with the safety protocols off serves no legitimate function. Maybe if you want to torture or kill someone - creatively - but that seems a little far afield of the ethics of Starfleet.

This is a gross oversight representing a fundamental design flaw in the holodeck. While my pleas to ban holodecks entirely have yet fallen on deaf ears, I urge Starfleet Command to issue an immediate recall and allow no further use of these brutal Cube 2: Hypercube-style escape room deathtraps.
