I saw the rake or something that i call the rake. I cant tell you what it was. i was driving late at night in the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. I live 30 miles south of alamosa, Colorado. i was driving on a backroad with my buddy taking him home near my house. It was about 12 am. Out of nowhere this thing appeared in the headlights in the middle of the road. It was Crouching over some roadkill. It was humanoid. It was pale. It looked like it had no ears. It looked like a wendigo from “until dawn” Looked like it was 7 feet tall. Abnormally long arms. No ears. No nose And some nasty teeth. It wasnt skinny but its skin was tight with ribs visable. And like long claws on the end of its hands. I was barely able to dodge it with my truck as i was driving considerably fast. As i swerved around it. It seemed like time slowed down. And it looked up from the roadkill it was eating and stared at me as i passed. Its eyes were yellow. I immediately brake. And yell at my friend, “what the fuck did y... keep reading on reddit ➡
Mercedes a second ahead of the nearest car which is also a low rake design, their own...
Everyone else running high rake
You can throw as much research and money at it as you want but the new front wing regulations will not give you the stability and control on a high rake car as it does on a low rake car
Here is an article in 2019 written by the secret aerodynamicist basically saying that teams were going by blind faith on a flawed concept - the high rake design https://www.bbc.com/sport/formula1/47838557
I take my dog to the park nearly everyday and it's been really nasty the past little while. I usually pick up cigarette butts and broken glass while my puppy plays, but lately it's gotten to be too much trash for me to manage alone before my dog wants to go home. If any other park goers would be willing to pick up chewed up toys, dog poo that's been left, etc. that would really help me with the upkeep.
I would also like to rake up the grass cuttings (dogs eat them, garbage collects there, etc.), but I don't have a rake. Would someone with an extra one be able to leave it at the park for me to use?
Lastly, if there's someone with a printer/ laminator, it would be really great to print off the park rules from the city of Kingston website to put on each gate and by the benches. I've asked the city to do this but given the pandemic, I think it's not top priority.
It’s origins are traceable to Creepypasta just like Slenderman, Jeff the Killer and other popular shit. I know in the eyes of people without paranormal experiences these are all the same thing (ghosts, Sasquatch, aliens, and creepypasta monsters) but I will read or listen to someone talking about the paranormal who claims to have had a real experience and in the same breath they will mention the Wendigo, Skinwalkers,and the Rake. Two really old creatures who’s origins appear to be found within tribes of Native Americans, (they seem to believe they are real enough.) and then a fucking Creepypasta monster whom I’m sure you can’t find mention of before 2010. Why would anyone do this? If you have had actual experiences then pretending it’s a real thing is just hurting our cause, and if you haven’t you should still recognize that there are hundreds to thousands of photos, videos, audio recordings, and personal accounts that have been taken for hundreds of years for most paranormal phenomena... keep reading on reddit ➡
So in my next session my players are going to face a Yaoguai with the Pounce and Rake, Maker's Gift.
Rake reads, "A creature with this special attack gains extra natural attacks under certain conditions, typically when it grapples its foe. In addition to the options available to all grapplers, a monster with the rake ability gains two free claw attacks that it can use only against a grappled foe. The bonus and damage caused by these attacks is included in the creature’s description. A monster with the rake ability must begin its turn already grappling **to use its rake—it can’t begi... keep reading on reddit ➡
I recently listened to his jailhouse interview again. After describing how he put his daughters in the oil tanks, they asked him about Shannan. At 23:03 he clearly said, "WE go over to Shannan."At 27:04 he said, "WE had a shovel, a rake, and a weed whacker as far as OUR tools." Sounds like he had help out there, which is what I always believed. When I go back to listen using this link, the timing doesn't exactly match up. But a minute or two after he says "we go over to Shannan" he says "we had a shovel..."
So, when i was younger at around 12-ish (im 15 atm) i was in Florida visiting my grandparents for about a month and a half during that summer, t was around 10:30 when i heard something rustling in the bushes outside so i peeked out my window to see what it was, it was in the middle of the month when i saw whatever that thing was, it was super lanky, all white, looked to be around 6ft long on all fours, had no hair or anything, and it scared the shit out of me, however as a stupid pre-pubescent thrill seeking kid i was i went outside to go get a better peek at what it was (need i mention that it was a fenced in backyard) i stepped outside with a flashlight and looked around for a good minute, i assumed i was seeing things and as soon as i turned around i heard two pairs of steps a ways behind me, i turned around and locked eyes with whatever the fuck that thing was, god i think that was the fastest iv ever ran to anything in my life, as i ran to the door i looked behind to see if the th... keep reading on reddit ➡
Between the car chases, explosions, and up close and personal combat of Extraction - Chris and I and the whole team had an amazing time, from walking through the fight choreography and blocking out the scenes to the final insanity you see on screen. I'm stoked to talk about the entire experience as well as what it's been like working in the industry, doing stunts as a Norse god, and all the mayhem along the way.
EDIT: Heading out now. Thanks for all the questions guys, this has been fun!
I don’t mean to sound too hostile about this, but it gets tiring to see half of all comments be about either a creepypasta or someone trying to parrot their version of a Native American legend.
Someone reports seeing an ape in North America, instead of talking about the possibility of an undiscovered species or an escaped pet the main rabble devolves into, “Careful it might be a flesh gait, also if you say their name three times they’ll kill you!” Or it goes like this,” YOU ARE IN GREAT DANGER, BELIEVE ME I HUNT RAKES FOR A LIVING! YOU NEED TO HAMG CLOVES OF GARLIC AND LINE YOUR DOOR WAYS WITH SALT! HERE IS SOME MORE INFORMATION ABOUT THEM (links creepypastas wiki).
I mean seriously we are supposed to be a cryptozoology sub.
I know Brandon Mckay and Ohtani, are they’re any other pitchers that rake?
Hi there, my friend runs a poker club that he'd like to run straight up, no rake. PokerStars works OK for tournaments since we can convert buy-ins to cash pretty easily, but it doesn't work for cash games. We've been using PokerBros and set the rake to the minimum and reimbursing players, but it's a pain in the ass. Are there any apps that allow you to set up a private game and set the table rake to 0%?
I am starting a PLO Zoom game with friends and I am trying to understand how the rake works. So I get a starting bank of 10,000 chips. I gave 500 to me and a friend and the balance went down by 1000 plus 50, which is part of the fee/rake. So the bank went from 10k to 8950. Then we played 2 hands as an experiment and our combined balance is now 999.74, meaning the 2 hands got raked a combined .26.
The weird thing is there is a setting to change the rake % and how big the cap is for the rake of each pot. Why would anyone increase the rake? Does some rake go to the club owner if rake % is increased?
How much do I get charged when I eventually need to replenish the bank?
I am also open to another platform if it doesn't charge rake... Thanks for any insight from more experienced users!
i wrote this at eleven pm as the title says and i have no clue if a single word of it makes ANY sense, because historically i do not make sense especially at so late an hour. i always get so nervous sharing My Ideas here because i am not good at Ideas but also very good at messing everything up and making a fool of myself.
I have been thinking about The Rake’s Progress a lot, recently. I was making a storyboarded video using its music earlier, so naturally while working on that I listened to it over and over and over again. And in the process, I have come to a conclusion on why it is the way it is- and how it should be staged.
The opera is designed, of course, to mimic the eighteenth century, which is reflected in both its music choice and its loquacious libretto. After all, it is neoclassical, and it was based on a set of paintings from 1734. But there’s also something… endearingly simple about it. The characters do not carry the nuance that can be seen in other opera characters... keep reading on reddit ➡
i've come here to seek advice yet again, and this time i'd like to know how to trade in lane when your enemy avoids your rake/when it comes back. i know talons basic trading combo is w-q-a, but whenever i throw out my w for either cs or poke and the enemy dodges it, how do i win the trade?
often they walk backwards once i throw out rake and dodge the second half of it while also putting me out of range for my rQ, so in the end, all the damage i put out was the first half of rake. i lose a lot of trades from doing this and i don't know what to do! any help is appreciated :)
Guess who's going to rake some leaves this fall? Me.
I'm going to have to fund this purchase myself this time. I have 3 months to get the $30 (which should be easy)
Only $10 a month lol
How are you guys gonna get this pack (The Last Laugh), from the in-game store or the physical code and case?
We prohibited stacked backpacks on your character.
You still can do it in your stash, but not in your character inventory.
If you have any bugs related to this change - please report it via launcher. Thanks!
He said that the rake sketch was one of the most important moments of his early improv and acting career. And the only thing I could find was an article on Vulture that leads to a dead link.
Wow, just looking at playing some pro 10 team leagues on Yahoo and if you are playing a $100 buy in league, the payouts at $500, $300, and $100 meaning Yahoo is taking $100 to the bank. Seems steep. Any good alternatives out there?
After finishing the vastly entertaining A Week to be Wicked this weekend, I spent some time thinking about how generally "Ugh" I feel about the trope of the male rake and female virgin and why this one worked for me in spite of that. Minerva is awesome and so is Colin, and they subvert the trope enough between her ambition and his trauma and healing to make the plot super satisfying.
But I'm craving way, way more of an inversion of that trope! I want to read about lady rakes seducing virginal, reticent men or women, or playboys falling for shy, sensitive guys. So please, hit me up with any of your recommendations for rakes that are other than male rake with female virgin. I like both contemporary and historical. I don't like abusive or cold rakes who aren't going to worship their beloved like the sun shines out of their ass by the end of things.
