My current situation. Stuck in the mud.
On the way to my last delivery right now, and Amazon's map took me down this road. In the backwoods of Iowa right now. I'm from LA and don't have the most experience when it comes to driving on gravel/dirt roads. Didn't look like a wet road when I approached it, plus it didn't show any alternate routes. On the phone with support now. I'm hoping I'm not paying for the tow out of my own pocket, that would be more than the amount im getting for completing the block. And I'm an hour out from my house/warehouse. Does anyone have any advice, please.

I was awoken on Clissold street (Black Hill) at about 4am on the 2nd of this month (This morning) to someone trying breaking into my house or steal shit out the front as I waited for him to leave my property as I only saw two people on the camera and thought if I get one I can take the other…. I snuck out the back door no shoes and snuck up behind him and put him in a head lock only for him to scream then about 6 or 7 other hooded men run out the dark from the surrounding driveways and all pulled knifes on me…. I threw the the fuck into the gutter I had in a headlock from behind and run back into my gate closing it as one chased and tried slashing multiple times with a knife or some sort of blade… luckily I got back into my front yard with I minor cut as they threatened to stab me I told them the cops were on the way so they all run back into their car one nearly falling out whilst they drove off…. They are not worried about cameras or guard dog signs as I have both and I was not letting my dog out after they tried stabbing and slashing me… after the police rocked up ( within 5 minutes ) I heard on the radio of one of the detectives they were chasing them so the cops sped off. As I was sitting out the front ( No chance of sleeping ) out of no where they came back speeding past yelling out the window saying they are going get me…. The reason I mention this is they are not scared of police or getting confronted and they will try attack you! After the police came back for a statement I told them the came back and the cops said they lost them a couple streets down…. Stay safe everyone and if you see an older model silver swift acting suspicious call the cops asap even if your being paranoid! And if anyone can lead me to any of these individuals or has any information please message me directly as I am seeking justice…. $500 reward for any legitimate information that leads me to any of these rats 🐀 cash on hand or pay ID whatever is suited….. Don’t bother trying to stuff me around with bullshit…. $1000 if you can take or direct me to one or all of them instantly without them knowing.. more then happy to pay up to 2k if I can find any of them today (2nd)…. Please if you know anything direct message me I will get my justice one way or another…..

2023.06.01 21:39 MostUnit My landlord sent a fake bill to collections (Arizona)

I sent in a 60 day notice to vacate before the deadline of the property we moved out of in October. This is documented through email and the management office acknowledged it. Then the property was sold to a different company, and I contacted them again about the notice to vacate to confirm information, including the forwarding address, which they confirmed back as accurate, through email. We paid the prorated amount of rent for October (with the new company) and this is also documented. We moved out, had a move out inspection, they okayed everything, and said they would send the deposit back in full, and unfortunately this is the one thing I don’t have documentation for.
Fast forward to the end of March, I receive a letter in the mail claiming I owe rent to this apartment we moved out of through October (so they disregarded the amount I already paid) to February. They also included a high list of damages. My understanding is they’re supposed to have sent that list of damages within 14 business days, not five months later. The letter was sent from the new real estate group, who we never signed any new terms with regarding any weird clauses about owing fees or anything like that, and our lease with the old company doesn’t include any kind of exploitative clauses that would validate this bill. This letter also was not sent to the forwarding address I confirmed with them, but to my old address, and not even written out correctly. The letter inside is dated nearly a month before it actually was sent out, and states I have 14 days to pay the bill before it’s sent to collections. (Mind this bill is more than my tuition for the year so there’s no way afford it) I had mail forwarding set up so thankfully the post office was able to figure out where it was supposed to be delivered to.
They provided contact information for billing. I email them several times and after a couple weeks they finally respond and say they don’t have the notice to vacate. I send them documented proof of the notice, as well as the acknowledgment from the old and new companies. They email back to say they’ll send it to the property manager. Again a couple weeks go by, I get a response that says, we’re busy and it’s in review. I email again, asked for confirmation on what exactly was sent to the property manager, as well as asking for documentation of the move out inspection and proof of the date. Concern for the date comes from them not sending me the bill until five months later, so am I being billed for another tenants damages? I haven’t gotten any response back, and I’ve been emailing regularly asking for updates. This week I receive a letter from a collections agency, asking me to pay the amount, or dispute it. Obviously I intended to dispute it, but what might be best to include or avoid? What other actions can I take to protect myself/rights in this situation? I really can’t afford a lawyer. I also have concerns about taking out loans over this collections as I’m supposed to be return to school in the fall. I do not intend to pay any of this as it all seems illegal and a scam to me, and I haven’t been offered any counter proof. I also am not going to mention this to the property, but my lease was signed by myself and my boyfriend, but I’m the only one they’re coming after.

2023.06.01 21:38 thibod0nt Trying to identify a smell I keep coming across in the woods. What chemical is added to ethylene glycol or propylene glycol to create the odor that is noticeable drifting from large manufacturing cooling towers?

This smell I sometimes come across in the woods reminds me of passing by cooling towers that often precipitate ethylene glycol away from manufacturing cooling towers. Ethylene glycol and propylene glycol are odorless, so there must be some chemical added to them to be recognizable via sense of smell. Anyone know what this chemical is, and/or what could be a substance emitting a similar smell in nature? My assumption is some kind of pollen or sap, but from what species?
There are no cooling towers located near me.

Chapter 3 - Dreams and Vows
Northern Facility, Vanstead Dukedom of Augustein, Year 989
“You’ve never heard of the Warped Forest?”
Amara looked over from where her gaze had drifted over to Lily and Tom in the corner. The two were playing some kind of hand game involving a series of intricate motions that she still couldn’t make sense of. It still felt odd to see the two of them older now. She’d gotten used to them being the “babies” of the cell, but they’d shot up in height and didn’t look all that different from the rest of them now.
Edith was watching her expectantly, and Amara shrugged.
How, though? Literally everyone in Vanstead knows about it!”
“Didn’t you say I was probably from Chaunton?”
The other girl sputtered, but quickly spoke again, never one to lose ground for long. “Well, we’re in Vanstead right now, you know? Once we get out of here, you’d better know about it!” She spoke the words confidently, like she spoke most things. Edith leaned forward. “My mo—I’ve heard tons of stories,” she corrected. Over the years, the girl had grown increasingly uncomfortable mentioning her family or anyone else she used to know.
Amara nodded, obligingly turning to face her and crossing her legs. “Tell me,” she said. Edith grinned triumphantly, and that alone was more than enough.
A few of the other kids paused and glanced over, including Lily and Tom, who stopped their game and scooted closer. Along with them came Susie and Ben, and eventually almost the entire cell was gathered around Edith, who sat up straighter. She began gesturing wildly with her arms as she always did when she told stories.
“Far up north in the Shifting Lands, where the air’s cold and there’s more trees than grasses, they say there’s a forest where the trees move.” She paused for dramatic effect.
“I thought they changed shapes,” Susie piped up.
“Shush, I was getting to that!” Edith huffed. “Up there, they say there’s no more form magic in the earth to keep them still, so they keep changing shapes. The branches’ll get longer and shorter, and the trunks twist around and bend as easily as water.” She mimicked the motion with her body. In her thin, malnourished state, her flailing arms brought back memories of James. Amara swallowed and kept listening.
“But the forest doesn’t just stay there,” Edith said dramatically. She leaned closer, and her audience obligingly leaned forward as well. “Every year it moves further and further south, and everywhere the trees go, that place also ends up, well, like that!” The girl fumbled for words, but pressed onward. “Not just that, but they say Aberrations live deep in the forest. They hide away in the trees, and whenever the forest gets close to a town, the Aberrations jump out!”
Edith swung her arms up like she was about to pounce, and a few of the kids gasped. Most of the ones who did so were the newer arrivals, people who hadn’t spent a year in the facility yet. After that point, their reactions usually dulled to some extent.
Edith looked around expectantly, and after a few seconds, they started clapping in awkward, erratic bursts, unused to the gesture. It seemed to be enough for the girl, who looked pleased with her story’s reception.
“Why’s it keep moving south?” one of the girls asked. She was one of the youngest in their cell. She didn’t speak much, but Amara often caught her singing to herself at night and after sessions. She always did it softly, mostly to herself, but Amara found herself wishing the girl would be louder. She had a pretty voice.
Edith frowned, and her eyes darted over to Amara for help. Amara just shrugged. She certainly didn’t know. Edith rolled her eyes and launched into an impressively convoluted string of explanations that grew increasingly more wild the longer she went on. Amara listened patiently, enjoying the tale despite its absurdity.
Later that night, while the rest of the kids slept, Edith sat down near Amara, who raised an eyebrow at her.
“So, the forest.”
Edith hit her good naturedly, making sure to focus the blow on Amara’s shoulder and not her increasingly scarred arms. “Shush. It’s cool, okay?”
Amara hummed. “It sounds scary.”
“Well, maybe a little, but I still want to see it.”
Amara nodded in understanding. “Yeah, I think I do too,” she said after a moment of thought. Through Edith’s tales, she’d learned about a string of different places, all of which sounded equal parts terrifying and beautiful. Just last week, Edith had spoken about the great storms of Aeramire, where excessive energy magic ore mining had resulted in extreme and unstable weather patterns. The way the other girl had described them had made them seem otherworldly and awe inspiring.
Sometimes, a small part of Amara resented Edith for telling these stories and filling her head with these images that she knew deep down she would never get to see. But then Edith would talk about the two of them traveling around the world together and going to see all those sights with such assuredness that she forgave her immediately.
Amara closed her eyes and allowed sleep to overtake her. She didn’t dream often, but that night, she dreamed of swirling branches and distorted trees, sharp figures against a vast, unending sky.

Susie died. Edith took it harder than Amara had expected, but the two of them had always been closer than Amara ever was with the girl. The next two nights, instead of sleeping near Amara like she usually did, she lay down on Susie’s old spot and stared up at the ceiling for hours. Amara didn’t know if she actually fell asleep those nights; she didn’t see her shut her eyes before her own weariness overtook her.
There hadn’t been a death in a long time, Amara realized. The last one was over a year ago. A part of her had assumed that those of them left in the cell were the “successes,” that they at least wouldn’t have to worry about losing another face among them, and she could tell that the others had thought the same, too. Amara absentmindedly squeezed her arm and stared at Susie’s old spot. She allowed numbness to overtake the simmering cold feeling in her gut.
She thought about the girl’s warm, bright hair. The cell was significantly more colorless without it.

“How long do you think they’ll keep us here?” Edith asked one day. Amara frowned at her, rolling over and bumping into the girl in the process. She tried to keep quiet, aware of the slumbering forms surrounding them.
“Go to sleep,” Amara whispered to her instead. She was about to shift and roll over again, but before she could, Edith’s hand shot out, stopping her.
“The Raymoths were overthrown.”
Edith’s eyes burned fiercely, their usual sparkle now so sharp they were almost painful to look at. Her hands shook slightly with rage. Amara swallowed. She’d never seen Edith look like that before. She sat up a little.
“…Are you sure?”
It was all she could think of to say. Her own mind reeled, trying to digest the information. For as long as she could remember, she’d always associated “Raymoths” with “the Sovereign” and “Sovereign” with those introductory words the magicians had said all those years ago: that the Sovereign had ordered for the experiments to occur. It was simply a fact of their existence that everyone in the cell knew of, but none had ever been able to do anything about it. Even Edith had, at most, speculated for a few days about the reason for the experiments before she, too, became tired of the subject and its lack of answers.
The Raymoths were overthrown? That meant there was a new Sovereign, which meant—
“I heard the guards talking about it.” Edith interrupted her thoughts, the other girl’s voice low. She clenched her fist. “The Sovereign’s been different for three years.”
Amara shook her head. “That can’t be. The experiments—”
“—are still going on.” Edith let out a frustrated breath. “The magicians must’ve kept doing them on their own.” She tugged at her hair, biting her lip so hard that Amara was worried it would start bleeding.
“Maybe the new Sovereign doesn’t know,” Amara said half-heartedly, both for Edith’s and her own sake. In her mind, all that rang out was, You’ll be here forever. The cold feeling boiled so intensely she was worried it would overflow. But she couldn’t let it, not here in the cell, surrounded by everyone else.
Even though she’d always told herself that she’d accepted her fate, a small part of her might have always hoped, she realized. But if the old Sovereign, the one who had ordered the experiments, was dead and they were still happening, then that was undeniable proof to her that nothing would ever stop them. They would die in the facility, and the rest of the world would probably never even know that they existed. The latter, Amara realized, was somehow an even more terrifying thought than the first.
Edith started to get up. “I’m gonna ask them,” she said, eyes hard. Amara jerked her head up in alarm.
“Are you crazy?” she hissed.
“I need answers,” Edith said. Amara reached up and grabbed her, preventing her from standing.
“Go back to sleep,” she said. She paused to take a second and glance around, worried that she’d woken the others, but if she had then they were good at pretending to be asleep. Amara turned back to Edith, pulling on her sleeve with more urgency. “What’s asking them gonna do? Even if they answer you, we’re still stuck here.” Edith flinched, but she quickly recovered, the flame in her eyes flaring.
“They can’t keep us here forever. We’re not just scared little kids anymore!”
“Yeah, which means they’ll get rid of us if they have to!”
The older they got, the more the magicians treated them with wariness. They were reaching an age where they were harder to control, and Amara was very aware that they weren’t the only “successes” in the facility. They weren’t valuable enough to risk keeping around if the magicians ever thought they were too much to handle.
Edith grit her teeth, swallowing, and Amara could see the girl shaking as she visibly tried to calm herself. She yanked her arm away and turned around, laying her head down with her back facing Amara and resolutely refusing to look at her.
Amara tried to tap her shoulder a few times over the night, calling out her name, but Edith continued to ignore her. Finally, Amara gave up and turned away as well, closing her eyes and waiting for sleep to take over. This was fine, she told herself, forcing her mind to that floaty place where everything was muted and there was no danger of that cold feeling rising. She’d rather Edith be mad at her than dead.

2023.06.01 21:38 1n_surf My brother annoys me on purpose and I'm sick of it

I have a younger brother and he does things to annoy me on purpose, sometimes it's so bad I'd have tears pooling in my eyes but all he does is laugh or smile more, he only ever try to comfort me when my parents are near or I get upset out loud but other than that he gives 0 crabs about my well being.
After he's finished getting a high off of my anger he acts normal and tries to get along with me, my ma says to ignore it but I can't. It's been 8 long years and since the beginning I barely snap at him, but recently I've been getting more and more angry and people around me will act shocked and annoyed as if they did not just witness him taunting me.
He's usually obnoxiously singing, like those things when then kid screams in a high pitch and he always does that even though we live near others, so I can tell he tries annoying me when he's loud and starts making random noises, he also repeats things a lot and tells me to "shut up" everytime I try to talk, despise me telling him over and over what I don't like he continue to bash me with things and hurt my feelings. He has no sympathy for me but I don't know why, I'm constantly trying to be nice to him but he just won't acsept it.
There's difference between siblings annoying eachother and siblings who push other sibling to the edge and he doesn't understand the difference, my ma is struggling and he makes her life 10x more difficult, we try to give him attention but he hangs on negative attention like a life line and I can't stand it.
I don't know if I'm bring dramatic but I can't take this anymore and I don't know how to fix this behavior, I've gotten this habit I think it's called where whenever someone does something remotely close to anything he does to annoy me I immediately get angry, sometimes I express it with aggressive actions but I don't do much more and usually cool down, the thing is when I get angry the anger stays with me for the whole day, it's like on and off switch, I will calm down but the second something sets me off I get angry again and it's ruining the mood of people around me and myself, I feeling like I'm more upset than happy when he's around and sometimes he's so bad I can't even look at him.
Does anyone have tip I can try? I try talking but he doesn't listen, I'd describe him as close as that one kid who wanted a new phone so he threw it in the pool and I don't know how to deal with that. Sorry if this is a bad post but I'd really appreciate this if it stop@:[

2023.06.01 21:37 zpcx I need guidance on paying back my debt

Hi everyone.
I’m not sure if this is the correct place to have this question asked, or appropriate, but I nearly lost my mind when crunching numbers this morning and am currently on the verge of tears.
I suppose a good place to start is by disclosing my debt - I am currently sitting at roughly 30K in debt across all my credit cards & will have 0 dollars to my name come mid July.
I knew I owed money, but never thought it was this bad and it wasn’t until just a couple hours ago I realized how bad it is.
I am nearing 30, still live at home & make 60k / year.
I have 5 credit cards with the following balances - Amex @ 9K, Visa @ 7K, MC @ 3K, Amex @ 3K & MC at 1.5K. I also have a LOC that is sitting at 4K.
I have roughly 20K in savings, but it will be spent on a vehicle that I am buying out in about a month and a half.
Currently my expenses are 100 / month on phone bill, and 650 / on car payments/ insurance. Outside of this, I am netting 1750 bi weekly.
My buyout for my vehicle will be just under 20K in roughly a month and a half, but after this is purchased I will be left with nothing & will be sitting on nearly 30K in debt.
I have a few items I am scrambling to sell, and at least start to make a dent on my debt but I have NO idea where to start and am losing my mind in disbelief I have ever let it get this bad.
I need some guidance, or assistance from anyone who would be kind enough to help as far as my budgeting should go, as I need to save money on top of paying my debts down.
What I have so far In mind, is paying my LOC off as fast as possible, and then using this to pay off my credit cards as the interest rate on LOC is significantly lower at 5%, versus the 20% on my cards.
Based on my calculations, it would take roughly 2 months for me to earn 9K based on my income & even then, I would still barely pay off my debts down to 20k.
I own no property, have no other form of income & am really struggling to properly budget these payments.
Any help would be greatly appreciated

2023.06.01 21:36 coochiesneeze69420 I don’t know how to deal with romantic rejection from someone so close to me.

I have known this boy for 3 years or so, we have talked daily through messages for months now. I visit him irl like once a month or so because I live a bit far. Last night I kind of opened up a bit too much and heavily implied my romantic feelings for him and he really did not seem to reciprocate in that way. When I tried to convey how apologetic I am for feeling the way I do all he kept saying was that i’m ‘fine’ and he would let me know if I made him uncomfortable. That’s just so embarrassing, I feel like such a loser. I just feel so miserable, I already deal with incredibly low self esteem and anxious attachment style.
I just don’t know what to do moving forward because we are very close I would say, we talk nearly 24/7 and he opens up to me so so much. Besides my romantic infatuation I really really care for him in a platonic sense, I want him to be happy and cared for even if that means sticking by his side as he dates another girl or some shit idk.
I feel so embarrassed and humiliated I asked him to be mindful of the things he says to me, that’s just so so so embarrassing. But it’s most embarrassing because it’s true, he says I am important to him, he will say he misses me, he will confide in me, and he will do physically intimate things on occasion. And I cannot take it, I get so hot headed and delusional and I misinterpret it and feel like maybe he actually might like me. The easy answer would be to just move on right? But I just want him to be happy and self sufficient, because he deserves it; And he says my presence helps him with that. Idk it’s just such an uncomfortable situation for me to be in and I feel so bad for burdening him with my unwanted feelings. Idk what to do, it’s just such an unfortunate situation to be in.

2023.06.01 21:36 Lost_Government6187 26 [M4F] SoCal/California - Now Accepting Potential Wife Applications

*Posting on a burner account for anonymity*
Greetings! I am a 26 year-old male from Southern California! I desire a true, real relationship. One where we start out as great friends and it naturally progresses into a great, intimate relationship. Where we can both just cry in general about our days judgement-free
I'm very career-oriented and have a full time job working for the government (ironic, considering my username here). I live very comfortably on my own but figured it would be great to have someone to share this magical journey of life with. I've made posts on here in the past, but I've had more interactions with bots than actual people (seriously, what's with the bots? I'm not interested in your crypto scam 😭)
I'll try my best to describe myself physically here. I'm on the taller side, white, not overweight but not skinny. Probably not the best description but I would be more than happy to exchange pictures over chat!
As for my personality, I am a huge nerd. I love all the typical nerdy things you can think of and would love a woman who shares similar interests, such as video games, Star Wars, Marvel, etc! Though, that is not a requirement either!
As for what I am looking for: I am looking for a woman to share the rest of my life with! I'm not very picky at all when it comes to who I mingle with as I feel I connect pretty well with various people from all walks of life! Just be honest about your intentions! If you do decide to message me, PLEASE be a woman from SoCal, or at least somewhere from or near California and be willing to travel! (If distance becomes an issue, we would both be splitting this responsibility, so let's be realistic about it!)
In your message, send a little about yourself, and include the word "tomato" so I know you read all of this! (I will ignore your message without the word tomato - nothing personal, but I want someone genuine so I need a way to filter out fake people/bots) I like putting faces to names fairly quickly so be ready to exchange photos after we start talking for a bit! Talk soon!

2023.06.01 21:36 Salt-Programmer-831 (22 Male) I want to move out after my degree, I do not know where to go currently live in NJ

As you can see from above I am a 22 Y/O Male currently working as a Used Car-salesman in NJ, I got to online university for my Bachelors in Computer Science. My girlfriend (Who is 24 and going for a degree in Health Sciences) and I have been throwing around the Idea of leaving NJ not only because it is too expensive, the prices of everything are gradually increasing more then other states, and housing itself is no longer affordable here. We've also discussed the possibility of kids in the near future. Both of our families are from here, when talking to my father about the possible decision to move out of state because of expenses in the nicest way possible he told me "Simply earn more", same with my oldest brother, mind you I love both of them, they've both been great to me my entire life, I do not wanna leave my family behind, especially my mother, and middle brother. However personally I've always like the idea of having land and not being too far from the water, an hour or less. I've started saving slowly for buying a house out of state, but with everything going on the world knowing where to go is almost impossible. Any help would be appreciated, note I know I'm from NJ so I'll take any roast in stride. Thank you =)

2023.06.01 21:35 Macaroon-Upstairs Divorce - Wife Financial Manipulation - Admitted it in writing.

Husband (me) and wife. Almost ten years married with three children 4, 6, and 9.
Wife is unwilling to return to work. She took one year off for each child born, which was longer than I agreed to. We discussed before marriage that she would have to work, and I fully disclosed my income, student loans and such. I also said that if we reached some milestones, she could potentially stay home if she wanted, or work part time. I was specific - we needed a paid off house and an emergency fund for her to do that. She can make north of six figures (USD) full time if she worked overtime. Upper five figures standard full time, and mid five figures part time as an RN with a schedule flexible enough to deal with childcare needs.
We did not become financially comfortable. In fact, we had some setbacks and are stuck renting an increasingly expensive 2 bedroom apartment with our family of 5. I work from home most days and she also decided to home school the children. I would be fine with that, if not for our financial situation and tight space. I am miserable due to the lack of space. I am depressed due to no financial future. I laid it all on the line and she responded to me the next day with an e-mail apologizing for "lying to you and myself" about what she wanted out of life. She has said this is no longer up for discussion and she can't think about it because it's too complicated.
I earn enough to feed and cloth us at the basic level. No retirement savings, no college funds, no vacations. She splurges on the kids, we are lucky to have anything left at the end of the month. My wife agrees that this is not ideal, but offers no solutions other than repeatedly suggesting I find a 2nd job (retail etc). My career doesn't have moonlighting opportunities that make anywhere near my primary salary.
My stance has always been for her to go work 2 years full time, or 3-4 years part time, and pay for a most if not all of a house. We counseled about it and the outcome sided with me, so she is no longer interested in going to counseling.
"Just leave then" right? I work with divorced men and the amount of child support they pay is staggering with fewer kids. These men have career women ex-wives. An attorney once advised me of my CS outlay a few years back and I would have to work 2-3 jobs to survive with that obligation. It's staggeringly high. My wife is now trying to say, suddenly, since I began pressing her about work, that she has something wrong with her physically. She has been to every referral, doctor, specialist, and test. No diagnosis. I feel as though she would do everything in her power to avoid working. Two of our kids have special needs and would qualify for SSI, which we can't get with me in the house, but she would get if she had no income. That plus my child support would put her on equal financial footing as now, while I would be working to the bone to stay alive. My mother-in-law collects alimony and also needs a place to stay.... We don't have room for her right now.
Anyway - Do I have any prayer of some kind of resolution in court that wouldn't leave me struggling for the next 10-20 years? Anyone seen anyone go through something like this and come out better for it?

2023.06.01 21:35 axil8 trying to go mostly raw - need motivation!

I am trying to get my health and mind to a better state. I had my first baby 2 years ago and since then I have not felt myself, I feel like my physical and mental health has just taken a big decline. I am at peak weight and I have been struggling with confidence, being able to focus, and get things done. My productivity has declined and I just want to get back to a better place where I feel good about myself.
I know a mostly raw vegan diet will get me where I want to be. I have been slowly working my way there week by week.
I have been doing lots of salads and smoothies. but getting bored of my same old recipes.
What are your favorite go-to meals? I would love to try something new!

2023.06.01 21:34 newyork0120 Fox News Is Not Conservative (Part 1)

Another week, another catastrophic drop in sales for Bud Light. Six weeks have passed since the boycott began - the boycott that many critics—including many on the Right—assured us would fail, and sales of the goat urine beverage plunged another 25%. The week before, sales dropped 24%. A cause of even greater concern for Anheuser-Busch executives is that the company’s other brands are ALSO seeing significant losses - sales of Budweiser were down nearly 10% for the second week in a row. And this is what Anheuser-Busch gets, and rightly so, for betraying their mostly working class conservative customer base in order to promote transgenderism.
So then I asked, “What should Fox News get?”, because that’s what Bud Light got. What should Fox News get? The Daily Signal has a report from journalist Mary Margaret Olohan laying out the “conservative” media conglomerate’s official company policies pertaining to trans employees. Now, Fox pretends to object to the invasion of women’s spaces by men, but its own policies tell a very different story. Citing the radical far-left Human Rights Campaign, the employee handbook grants employees at Fox News the right to use whatever bathroom aligns with their “gender identity”, and it guarantees that they’ll be addressed according to their “preferred pronouns”.
Under the category “Gender Transition,” Fox’s employee handbook promises that the company is dedicated to “expanding and strengthening” efforts to “sustain a more inclusive work environment.” The Fox employee handbook is posted on Workday, where employees can see company guidelines or policies, a former employee told The Daily Signal.
“Employees who are transitioning their gender have the right to be open about their transition if they so choose, and to work in an environment free of harassment, discrimination, or retaliation, and without fear of consequences or transphobia for living openly,” the policy says.
Citing the Human Rights Campaign, one of the most prominent LGBTQ organization in the country, the Fox handbook defines a slew of LGBTQ terms, including cisgender, gender expression, gender-fluid, gender identity, gender non-conforming, gender transition, LGBTQ, non-binary, and transgender.
For the past several years, Fox received a perfect score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index, “the nation’s foremost benchmarking survey and report measuring corporate policies and practices related to LGBTQ+ workplace equality.” A former Fox News employee told The Daily Signal that the company frequently mentions this perfect score in employee training materials.
So, they’re very very proud of having gotten a perfect score from the Human Rights Campaign, which is, again, a radical far-left organization. As a former Fox employee mentions in the article, Fox spends a lot of time attacking woke corporations, but forgets to mention that it is itself a woke corporation. In fact, there is absolutely no difference between Fox and any of the woke corporations that it pretends to criticize. This also creates the rather funny possibility that a female pundit who goes to Fox Studios to do a segment complaining about men in women’s bathrooms may visit the restrooms after her segment, only to find that she is sharing it with a man.
Now, if you’re more gracious than me, you may want to excuse all of this by arguing that Fox is only following the law in the states where its offices are located, it has no choice. And if that was the case, it would make Fox merely a pitiful capitulator, but the fact is that their advocacy for trans ideology goes far far beyond anything that is required by law… yet. Keep in mind that Fox has, for a long time now, made the editorial decision to refer to trans identified males as “she”, and trans identified females as “he”. So even in articles and commentary ostensibly critical of men who invade women’s spaces, STILL, its journalists and commentators refer to those men as women, thereby kneecapping their own argument.

Can anyone help me locate a homeless guy I've seen in Birmingham, often seen sitting on the streets with his cat on or near Bull Street and the closed off street, or near Martineau Place. I'd like to help him out.

2023.06.01 21:33 Responsible-Bug-7464 Please help me decide! SLU vs CUSM

I have recently gotten off the waitlist at CUSM, and since I am a CA resident, It's made the decision quite difficult for me. Please help me! I'm interested in potentially pursuing IR, Ortho, ENT, and don't want to close any doors.
SLU: Pro - Better match-list for the specialties I'm interested in. - Close to WashU for research - Better Clinical rotations in home hospitals - Home programs for most specialities - 120K scholarship bringing costs to about 60K/yr + CoL - P/F grading
Con - Biggest con is far from family - Don’t know if I like St. louis and the location - Have no relatives/family nor friends nearby - I hear research is not spectacular at SLU
Pro - near family and my support system - I can use my phlebotomy/EMT licenses to volunteer at clinics - Have friends that go here - P/F grading - Gives extra time to prepare for Step exams and lectures are optional
Con - Terrible matchlist (Mostly IM, FM, and EM with barely any surgical matches and no Rads) not sure why - No home programs - No home hospital, rotates in random hospitals all around CA most of which aren’t very highly regarded - No research opportunities (on my own to fnd my own research) - About the same cost at 60k/yr + CoL

2023.06.01 21:33 popixis My gf broke up with me and I can't handle it

Me (26M) and my girlfriend (27F) were together for 2 years. I've never met anyone, who I was so comfortable with, we were amazing together, we moved in together over a year ago. We had a few arguments, but we loved each other more than we were bothered. I planned to propose later this year, she is definitely the one. I love her with my whole heart and body, and I know she did so too. I always did my best to make her happy, support her and be there for her. We've never been perfect, but always worked together on our relationship.
I've made some mistakes during past few months. I was blind to my own issues and during our arguments, I made her feel like she's something less. I never wanted to. It started to go wrong when I left for a short trip month ago. When I came back, she was like a changed person. She wasn't as open as before, didn't wanna have anything physical with me. We had plans together for upcoming days, but she didn't wanna go. Then she told me to leave her alone and leave the apartment.
After a month of not wanting to meet, then agreeing to meet and being weird and cold and short discussions and arguments, she called me to meet one last time and broke up with me.
She explained, that she feels very distant from me, she's nervous that I am too eager to hear how she feels and whether our relationship has any future. She feels like there's something wrong with her, and she doesn't wanna be with me until she understands why she feels that way, because she may not have enough strength to deal with it and my behavior again. Also she told me, that she can't expect me to wait for her to deal with it on her own.
I wasn't a great partner lately, and I sincerely apologized, because I never intended to hurt her. I would have done things differently, if I was aware of it sooner. But the thing she does not wanna be with me, that it's not progressing in any way and everything I do makes it even worse, broke me into pieces.
It feels like I'm dying from inside. I've never been so sad and lonely, yet I still have amazing people around me. I cry everyday, even though I always thought of myself as resilient person. It's been a week already and I still can't stop thinking about anything else. I did my best to save the relationship and I'm exhausted from constant trying and failing.
I've lost my best friend, a woman I loved and wanted to have family with. And at this point, I just lost all hope for happy life. I've hurt someone I cared about, without being aware of it and now I hate myself for it. I hate how fragile relationship can be and that right now, I feel hopeless. There's nothing I can do. I love her, I care about her and she can't stand me near her.
There's so much running through my head, all the mistakes, conversations and I'm trying to find some clues why did it happen so suddenly and without me being aware. I always thought I'm mindful, how could I miss it?
I don't know what to do and how to deal with pain and sadness I'm feeling, even though I understand that it's over and I can't control people not to leave me.
I'm miserable. It sucks.
Thanks for this community and you reading this. Appreciate any advice. Have a wonderful day.

2023.06.01 21:33 SkrinT4 TIFU Hi! I'm an Ukrainian artist with 3yo daughter. We've been invadеd at the beginning of the wаr near Buchа and lоst our home but thanks to the Rеdditоrs we were able to get out of the occupatiоn. She thinks we just walk for a long time and doesn’t understand that we have nowhere else to return

TIFU Proof
Me and my 3y.o. daughter lost our home near Bucha when the wаr was started. We didn't have a car and were forced to walk.
A few weeks we hid in bоmb shelters because the Russiаn troops were advancing. I told about it on the Rеddit and caring people helped us find a person who will take us out by his car to another town where it's save. We are still in Ukraine. Here is no any job, so people raised some money for us and we were able to rent a small room for living. Some commissions help us buy food and pay for housing and also we paint and send colorful portraits to people who help Ukrainians from around the world! This is our thanks! If you like to get a colourful portrait from your photo, you can send a photo to me via chat too and we can paint!
My daughter is very happy with the new colorful portraits and they distracts her from the constant howl of an air alarm when misiles and kamikaze drones fly over us. My daughter thinks we are just walking for a long time and keeps asking when we will be back home because she doesn't understand that we have nowhere else to return. I hope one day we can get housing and return to a quiet life.
If you feel like you're having a bad day, just remember those who are doing much worse. If they can handle it, then you'll be fine too!
TL;DR Ask or tell me anything. I'll be happy to answer!

2023.06.01 21:32 jabjabx Mizuno Wave Rider and Skyrise. What's the difference.

I've loved the Mizuno Wave Rider 24 and 25 (the 24 was marginally better than the 25 for me). I've got a pair of 24s in reserve in my favourite orange which I'm keeping for races, but my current 25s which I use as a daily trainer have nearly got 500 moles on them so I need to replace. I can get Wave Skyrise 3 for about £60, they seem to be neutral like the wave riders, so what's the difference? If anyone has a pair or can compare the two I'd love to know tour thoughts.
