So my uncle is prone to fits of rage, and I came down from my normal state of living to live with him in his house, help him run his business, and get his house ready to sell (Redoing floors, painting, ect.) The whole shabang. Que to his wife making it into the last guest bedroom, and her finding all of this nice tile in the closet that he had bought a couple years ago for a planned project that he never got around to, at least $3000 dollars worth of tile, and very nice faucet sets, pretty much expensive stuff to remodel a bathroom and a kitchen. She started to throw a fit that they were in her way, and my uncle who has recently had a heart attack, and a pacemaker put in, really wasn't up to moving them all downstairs to somewhere and to get a nice spot for them, so he could resell them later, they got in a big argument, she said he wouldn't end up selling or using any of the stuff, and he wouldn't move any of the stuff and by time I got back from working she was storming out of the house because he wouldn't just throw it all away, then he goes to me, screaming like I kicked his puppy, telling me to throw every single thing away in the closet right now, well, I did, and there was so much nice stuff, and the tile was beautiful, I honestly felt bad taking it to the road, but after my first box, they were very heavy so I figured, they're all garbage, he said throw it away, so instead of gently putting them down, I dropped each box , enjoying a satisfying shattering sound of hundreds of dollars of tile, it sounds very soothing to the ear, and at the same time, kind of like nails on a chalkboard. Anyways he ended up coming out towards the end of my enjoyment, and blew up, these tiles were supposed to be left in tact, no one will pick up broken tiles! Well he said throw them away by the road, never said anything about not breaking all of them. Oopsies. I gotta get my wins where I can with him, as he constantly belittles and attacks me, but he's family. Good times.
TLDR: My uncle got in an argument with his wife over a bunch of expensive belongings and he told me to throw them away and I broke all of it and he got upset that they were broken and ruined because he still wanted to use them or have someone else use them.
My fellow Apes, let's be reasonable.
A bunch of weak "DD" on a glitch meaning Citadel get margin called and everyone goes ape. Even Dave from the AMA yesterday, the pro, when asked about it said "Guys, it's obviously a glitch they happen all the time."
I just went through a bunch of NYSE listed stocks and they ALL show that missing volume for the 5-6 minute period at the same time. That screams "Server Reboot" to me, not "Margin Call".
The negative volume? That screams end-day data dump to brokerages where the numbers didn't line up because the server reboot caused volume data issues. So the brokerage reporting systems tried to line up the data automatically causing a huge "negative volume" that had to get manually fixed.
Let's also remember that Citadel Securities is NOT Citadel Advisors. Citadel Advisors would get margin called, not the market maker. When it feels like a whole bunch of messages are being pushed that you really want to hear but make no sense, it sounds like a way to hype you up then disappoint you at the end of the day ... to cause uncertainty. What the hell is that called again?
Oh, right. FUD!
I mean, let's not tighten the straps on those tinfoil hats too tight there Apes, you're brains need some oxygen.
Edit: Here's the trouble shooting report for yesterdays glitch https://www.ctaplan.com/alerts#110000353886
Looked up this system, it controls trades and quotes. It also communicates with 9 market makers using multi-cast networking which can be dangerous. Multicast is a fire and forget protocol, it doesn't care if anyone gets the message. So if something glitches and isn't listening, but you don't know that and keep firing messages at it ... stuff gets lost.
My friend said to post this here. My ex is an abusive pile of shit and we had a kid together. I left him while I was pregnant, but I would take the baby to see him on his lunch hour occasionally. He paid $29 US a month in child support for a very long time. I got it reviewed when he got that job and it went to $89 US a month. When he found out "how much" it went up he threw a screaming temper tantrum in his work and chased me out of the building with our 9 month old. We had family court a few days later and he blamed me for everything. He even got his friend to lie and say he was there and I started it. The judge thankfully didn't believe him, but I was told to continue these terrible visits at his work. Now for the revenge. It was a furniture rental store and he would constantly bad mouth customers in very detailed ways. The next, and last time I took our baby there, I sat down with a small notepad and wrote down the names he and the other person said, how many months they said they were behind, how much they said owed, and every name he and his buddy called every single person. There were quite a few racial slurs said that day. When time was up he had to leave and I told his boss. The boss didn't do a damn thing. I knew 3 people he was badmouthing and I knew how to get in touch with 5 or so others. I worked my way through that list telling people exactly how their personal financial info was being released and the names they were called. He and his buddy lost their jobs the next day and the owner filed a restraining order against them. I didn't feel bad at all.
Edit: I'm on mobile and I have no idea how to format. This happened almost 20 years ago so my child is safe and an adult now. I haven't made my way through all the comments, but I'm not a psycho. I went to his work because I was told to by the mediator on the days I had time. I would sit as far away from him as possible and read for school. This was the arrangement we all agreed on and it had worked well for several visits before that day. The boss didn't do anything because they were friends. How did I make it with getting almost no support? I worked 2 jobs, one of which I could take my kiddo with me most of the time. My family and friends were very helpful. I did it all because I had to.
Edit 2: I forgot to include that as unintentional effect this was a final straw that got the store closed down. People called corporate to complain, it was in our local paper, and in our local news.
I got really pissed over having to go print a form that was sent to me and I'm not even sure why I'm mad. Anybody else get really mad over tiny stuff like this?
So many times have I had sex with my boyfriend (and similar acts with past partners) only for him to cum, roll over, and then we cuddle. I don't make a fuss about it, despite numerous talks about it in the past, I just want to hold him.
But what if things were reversed? What if the norm was that sex ends when the woman cums? I can't even imagine a scenario where any man I've been with would be as accepting as they expect women to be.
I would imagine there would be a lot of whining, guilt tripping, passive aggression, or just straight up anger. Basically, I get the feeling many guys would have a straight up temper tantrums if they didn't get to finish.
"dOn'T bLuE bAlL mE iTs NoT hEaLtHy"
Yet, we're expected to go without nearly every single time and to just be cool with it.
Why is sex always about pleasing the guy? Why does it end when he finishes? This is so ingrained as being "the way things are", I feel like I'm being irrational and shrill just for asking these questions!
If I asked my boyfriend, he'd ask me why I was trying to stir shit up and cause problems. I know I'm not the only one in this boat.
I know not all men are like this, but god damn if almost every single one I've been with hasn't been
This is part rant, part opportunity for others with similar frustrations to rant. Thanks for hearing my shower thought.
After seeing some butthurt comic fans already calling WandaVision a failure because their farfetched theories didn't come true and seeing a LOT of people getting their hopes up over the new AEW signing set to take place tomorrow, I'd like to say this:
Please manage your expectations. Don't get yourself riled up for something unlikely just to be disappointed with the whole PPV.
I'm seeing WAY too many people expecting CM Punk, or Lesnar, or fucking JOHN CENA, I'm even seeing people expecting contracted WWE talent like Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan. These same people will no doubt shit on the whole show when they're inevitably wrong.
It's ok to fantasy book, it's even ok to be a lil disappointed that you didn't predict what would happen, but it seems a bit weird to completely define a show by what DIDN'T happen rather than by what did happen.
Just like _______________________ not happening doesn't ruin WandaVision's story about loss and trauma and healing, your choice for the signing not being correct shouldn't ruin what I hope will be a dope PPV
I know you're all very excited by the idea that a random hairloss sufferer could "find the cure" but it's just not realistic or credible than an arm chair biologist discovered anything that actual researchers haven't already considered. And no, there is no "big pharma" conspiracy to "cover up the truth", all compounds mentioned in this tenuous hypothesis are already actively being sold by the same pharmaceutical companies that manufacture existing hairloss medications. You can actually buy pure procyanidin B-2 directly from Merck if you felt so inclined. Furthermore all current hairloss treatments are no longer proprietary, anyone can manufacture and sell them, so a new treatment would not be any threat at all to anyone's profits.
Why am I posting this? Because you're all throwing money away on snake oil supplements and hyping yourselves up based on nothing scientific simply because it sounded impressive. Please keep your heads on straight and stay rational, otherwise you're in for an absolutely soul crushing disappointment and a drained bank account.
Keep an open mind, but not so open that your brain falls out.
My girlfriend and I have been together for about a year and we're both in college right now.
My girlfriend has always been high strung and when she's under a lot of stress she gets irritable and sometimes gets aggressive to eliminate or reduce the situation that's causing her stress. We had a massive fight a couple of months in about this and since then, she's stopped acting like this with me, until now. She has has some underlying mental health issues that causes her to be overly self-conscious of her behavior and aware of what people think of her.
The year we've been together, she's been kicked out of a couple of study groups. Since that really caused her mental health to deteriorate, so I didn't ask why she was kicked out and only tried to make her feel better. Right now, we're almost at the end of this semester and my girlfriend has been asked to leave another study group right before finals and apparently she confronted them. One of the girls in the group said that she has a "nasty temper which really disrupts the vibe of the group".
This was last Friday. Since then she's been irritable and snippy with me too. Like when she asked for chocolate pudding from the cafeteria and I accidentally got her vanilla and she just went off in a huff and said "I guess I have to do everything myself cause you don't fucking listen". Another time, she was telling me about a change in college policy for the Fall semester and I decided to look it up to get the exact wording from the school. That caused her to go off on me saying that "why do you need to double check what I say? Isn't the fact that the info is coming from me enough?" And she's been insulting that study group whenever we spend time together. Right now, it's a landmine filled field and stepping on that mine will set her off again.
Look, I don't know how to tell her that she a) broke her promise to me to stop being so snippy and b) that girl in the study group had a point about her temper so she's aware of her attitude and how it negatively impacts the people around her. If I straight up tell her this, it's going to pretty much destroy her mental health state and she'll fail finals. But I can't live like this anymore. I liked the girlfriend that I had when she had her temper under control. But I'm also on the fence of just straight up leaving her too.
tl;dr: Girlfriend was kicked out of her study group for having a nasty temper. She is now taking that attitude with me. I don't know how to tell h... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've been holding my X shares since before the first squeeze and never gave in to the hedgefuks, its been a wild ride. This past week has had some insane DD and revelations drop, and these past 24 hours have been even crazier, with even theories on "them" having been margin called yesterday.
Last night was the second all nighter I've pulled this week(for reasons unrelated to GME), and I've been glued to this sub, checking it nonstop. A lot of apes seem to be expecting some crazy movement in GME today. I'm hoping something special happens too, but we've had our hearts broken before, and all these dates that come and go can fatigue us emotionally. So keep your expectations in check, and remember, hope for the best, but expect hedgecuk fuckery.
Just Buy and HODL ✋💎🤚 until the ticker has an eight figure number next to it. And when we do commence lift off and begin the trip to andromeda, hold until after the peak for maximum tendies.
And remember, during the flight, hedgies will empty out their book of dirty tactics, that means anything from a final mother of all short attacks, a flood of "its peaked already, get out now" posts on our very own sub, or even a reddit outage.
Just one last thing, I know we sometimes struggle with big words, but can you say "Greatest wealth redistribution in history"?
🚀 🚀 🚀 We're making history, to Valhalla 🚀 🚀 🚀
It's kinda accurate once you see these idiots as little more than crybabies stomping their feet until they get their way. It's pathetic, really. It's gonna happen whether they like it or not.
During several livestreams since the Alpha launched, the Devs have pointed out that the new iteration of the Stellar Forge planetary generation technology will not be implemented during the Alpha. The alpha's purpose is testing the core mechanics (obviously), not showing off the new planetary tech; that will have to wait for the full release. The graphical overhaul has been implemented, but not all of the new procedural generation tech,
So while we get beautiful views already and while we get to land on new classes of planets in the Alpha and explore canyons and such on foot, we will have to wait until the full release to see beautiful worlds like the ice planet from the combat gameplay preview.
I thought this would be a helpful post as I've seen a lot of people (both here and on the forums) who aren't aware of this and thought the worlds they were landing on were somehow representative of the final product, which it caught me by surprise. Hope this is a helpful clarification!
Here's a source from the forums, courtesy of u/Neqideen: https://forums.frontier.co.uk/threads/odyssey-alpha-update-1-0.568136/
>"Planetary Tech, including geometry, will not be final until release. However, players may see coloration changes throughout the Alpha phases."
^(Edited for clarity)
Post all the rants here!
Is this solid theorizing or wishful thinking?
Yeah we're all excited for next week. A lot of indicators, both from within Gamestop's leadership (share recall, cryptic Instagram/Twitter messaging, possible CEO announcement, squeezeable bananas) and without (repeating chart patterns, hedge funds being liquidated, proposed DTCC/OCC/NSCC rules) seem to be pointing to next week being a promising one.
That said, I'm not here for a specific date. I say this because if you've been around before/since early March, you'll remember that another date was widely heralded as the start of the squeeze. Many had their hopes up, but it came and went and not much happened. It had the potential to be demoralizing, and some complained, and I'm sure some threw in the towel at that point (and if you did, that's fine, we're not colluding, after all).
Yes, 4/16 is when DFV's calls expire, and if the price climbs 400% in 5 days and the rocket begins its takeoff to Alpha Centauri, sweet. I got my ticket and my monke spacesuit and I'm ready for facemelting Gs and intergalactic planetendies. But you had better bet that staving off another week of squoziness is no doubt the singular goal of SitAdele, Sasquatch, and friends. If there's any chance to make DFV's call expire OTM, regardless of how manipulative, amoral, and illegal it may be, they'll sacrifice everything to take it.
I don't care what the rest of you all do, but I'm treating next week as just another week, until proven otherwise.
Short example with Pokemon (since I don't think Pokemon will be in the Direct anyway):
What we want: Adamant Diamond/Lustrous Pearl with new Mega Evolutions
What we'll get: Let's Go to Sinnoh! With very few updates from 2007. Including very few Fire types and really slow health bars.
So I've seen a lot of discussion about Uthred's impulsive behavior and his temper early on and I completely agree. There are a lot of times he could have just chilled out and had a normal conversation and may have been much better served. The big one that comes to mind is when he barges into the church to confront the King regarding having been the one that really killed Ubba. I think it's really awesome though to see the change through the seasons and realize that he's not there anymore and has truly grown as a character. People will point out when he killed the little priest by slapping him but he truly gave that man so many chances to not get hit. He literally begged the King to step in and stop the priest from continuing. Uthred from season 1 wouldn't have done that.
I know a lot of you are already doing so, but I feel it needs to be mentioned:
We got news of an update to Keter Realization, but the wording was just that: An Update. The Q&A specifically mentioned that the [REDACTED] fight was the realization, and I know some people are expecting something more out of this but I think we should take a moment to consider how unlikely it is.
They announced the update 10 days ago, that is such a small amount of time to design a fight they never had the intention of making, complete with gimmicks, songs, coding how it functions and where it would fit in the story and when, as well as the EGO cards and then recontacting the voice actors and agreeing to set up a time to VA it at a later date. (Last one probably unnecessary)
I honestly think we will just get EGO cards. I know this is probably a "Duh" post, but I just needed to make sure people aren't setting themselves up for disappointment.
