Best places to walk cats in/around Seattle?
Hi y'all, I just adopted a wonderful previously feral cat from Seattle Humane who loves exploring and meeting new people, and tries to follow me out when I leave my apartment sometimes. I think he could be a really strong candidate for a cat who'd enjoy going for walks and hikes and have been researching the best cat harnesses and harness training techniques.
My question for fellow adventure cat companions is where y'all take your cats in or around Seattle? Also open to any other tips you might have for taking your cats on safe, comfortable adventures outside of your home. Thanks in advance!

2023.06.03 22:48 PostReplyKarmaRepeat Defending the Draft: Detroit Lions

Brad Holmes is a wizard. What he has done as the Detroit GM in just 3 years has been a playoff push away from being quite remarkable, especially considering the context of succeeding prior general manager Bob Quinn which ended in typical Lions losing fashion. Brad Holmes would immediately come out swinging and first transaction as general manager was trading longtime franchise quarterback Matthew Stafford to the Los Angeles Rams in exchange for two first round picks, a third round pick, and quarterback Jared Goff. At the time, it was bittersweet for fans, as Stafford was the practically the lone bright spot in the last decade (outside of Megatron), but the haul they got in return was at least something. Stafford was injured and already likely leaving to chase a Super Bowl and Detroit was going into full rebuild mode so Detroit fans were just happy with what they could get. Brad ended up hiring a one time Head Coach, Dan Campbell. A pick made purely on the potential he would be able to change the culture with his grind it out, Football attitude Campbell was known for. All in all, it was business as usual for Detroit as they begin yet another rebuild....

Oh parity in sports.... You never cease to amaze us....
Somehow and someway, In Holmes' first draft, Penei Sewell falls to Detroit at #7 and the Lions draft room goes bananas on camera! At the time we did not know it, but Detroit just landed their future Pro Bowl leader in the trenches. In round 4, the Lions scoop a literal Sun God in Amon-Ra St. Brown. Little did we all know the impact both of these players would have today. Both players are arguably top 10 in their position.
Fast forward to 2022 and the Lions are coming off one of the most promising 3-13-1 seasons that you could ever ask for. The team and coaches have bought in to Dan Campbell's grind it out style of Football. The culture seemed to finally be changing and it felt like Jared Goff turning into a solid Stafford replacement, despite being considered a throw on by most in the Stafford trade.
The 2022 draft Brad Holmes' statement to the NFL. It does not matter where you take guys. If you know how to evaluate talent, you go for YOUR guys and you can be successful. Holmes was able to draft Aiden Aiden Hutchinson at #2 (some say he should have been #1), Jameson Williams (best receiver in the draft at 12 via trade), Kerby Joseph (who picked off Aaron Rodgers THREE TIMES IN ONE GAME!), and drafted James Houston and Malcolm Rodriguez in the 6th round. Both players are looking like future defensive stars. Dare I say the best 6th round success since the Pats drafted TB12? Don't @ me lol
The Lions followed up the draft with a MUCH improved 2022, landing a 9-8 winning record and going 8-2 in their final 10 games. Jared Goff is looking like the guy who took the Rams to the Superbowl, every position has young talent and this upcoming 2023 draft is looking like it could seriously push the Lions into serious playoff contention if the cards are played correctly.

Round 1: No. 12 (from CLE through HOU and ARI) – Jahmyr Gibbs, RB, Alabama
Flashback! Remember that Stafford trade where they got got the Rams draft pick? You know that pick that was supposed to be in the upper 20s because LA is so good and are coming off winning a Super Bowl? Yea, well they sucked.... Somehow they sucked so bad that that pick turned into the number 6th overall pick.
Odds makers had the Lions grabbing Devon Witherspoon as their secondary was a big need. However when Seattle took him at 5, who knew what would follow? Well, the last thing fans expected.... The Lions ended up passing on Tyree Wilson, Jalen Carter, AND Bijan Robinson by trading down to 12 to take Alabama running back, Jahmyr Gibbs. Hindsight is 2020, but reports now show the Lions wanted Jahmyr over Bijan, which means Holmes and co. got THEIR guy.

Immediately fans realized the inevitable. Fan favorite and oft injured running back, DeAndre Swift, was going to be cut or traded. Almost immediately they traded D'Andre Swift and a 7th round pick for the Saints' 2025 fourth-round pick and a 2023 7th round pick.

This pick is exactly why you and I are sitting on the couch and Brad Holmes gets paid the big bucks. "HoW cAn YoU dRaFt a RuNnInG BaCk ThAt hIgH". Well, the dude is a straight up baller. If I asked you who led Alabama in receiving last year you would probably say some 5 star Wide Receiver. It was Gibbs. Gibbs is being compared Alvin Kamara in the way he can run and catch. He was listed as running a 4.36 at the combine. Gibbs transferred to Alabama last season after spending the first two seasons of his career at Georgia Tech. He carried the ball 151 times for the Crimson Tide in 2022, averaging 6.1 yards per carry and scoring seven touchdowns. He also caught 44 passes for 444 yards and three catching scores. With the departure of Swift and the newly acquired bowling ball back in Montgomery, Gibbs is going to be an immediate impact as a "weapon" and less of a conventional running back. The thunder and lightning combo the Lions will have will be fun to watch behind their top 5 O Line.


Round 1: No. 18 – Jack Campbell, LB, Iowa
"HoW cAn YoU dRaFt a RuNnInG BaCk ThAt hIgH" made sense with the Gibbs pick, but drafting a Linebacker at 18 with other glaring needs like lineman and secondary left Lions fans a bit puzzled by this pick. It hurt a little less when you remember this was their 2nd pick in the first round. Also, many people had Jack Campbell on their board for later in the draft so in terms of liking a guy for who they are, very few people are against this pick. But like I said before, Brad Holmes and Dan Campbell go after guys they have faith in. Until they screw up, fans cant complain too much!
But who is this guy and what makes him so good? Well if you care about RAS or "Relative Athletic Score" Jack is outstanding. He scored a 9.98 RAS out of a possible 10.00. This ranked 6 out of 2600 LB from 1987 to 2023. He possesses rare athleticism for being 6-5 and that allows him to be exceptional in coverage. PFF rated him as the highest coverage grade since 2018 Devin White at LSU. He also has great leadership skills as he was Iowa's team captain and won Big10 Defensive Player of the year.
Jack Campbell is going to join a much improving linebacking core that is led by team captain Alex Anzalone and 2nd year stars Malcolm Rodriguez and James Houston. The Lions will likely play him on the outside because off his athleticism but I am certain he will be moved all around the field.


Round 2: No. 34 (from ARI) – Sam LaPorta, TE, Iowa
This is getting a bit out of hand for the Lions fans that appreciate positional value when you draft. Clearly Holmes has totally thrown conventional wisdom out of the window. However, tight end IS a need. Of all of the positional units Tight End is probably the weakest. In 2022 the Lions trotted Brock Wright, James Mitchell, and Shane Zylstra....WHOOOO?!?! Exactly...they needed help. Outside of when they took him, most pundits are pretty happy about this pick. Not only did the Lions get their second Iowa captain, but Sam might have landed the best tight end in the entire class.

With LaPorta, the Lions get a player that can do a variety of things. He can play in the slot, in-line or even out wide. This is EXTRA important when you remember that Jameson Williams is suspended for 6 games due to gambling. During his career at Iowa, he had 513 snaps in-line and 304 snaps out of the slot (per PFF). It really wouldn’t be surprising if LaPorta walks into Detroit and earns the starting tight end spot. He has the talent to do it and by being the 34th overall pick, there is going to be some high expectations for him.


Round 2: No. 45 (from DET) – Brian Branch, S, Alabama
For the first time all draft it felt like a player fell to Detroit and they werent reaching for their guy (for better or worse). At 45, the Lions were already drafting their 4th player and wasnt even the end of the 2nd round. Scouts said that Branch was one of the safest picks in the draft due to his lack of a jarring weakness. Branch is siad to have extremely high football IQ which led him to play all around the defense for the Crimson Tide. Branch has primarily handled nickel coverage, but has the range and instincts for single-high or split safety looks. He’s quick, fast and strong with the ability to match up with shifty slots, bigger possession receivers and pass-catching tight ends. Branch is also tough and gritty which makes himu a perfec fit for this Lions team. He has a nose for the ball and is capable of making game-changing plays. He had two interceptions and two forced fumbles during his freshman season at Bama.
Branch made headlines on draft day to be the only guy to stay into day 2 in the greenroom as he was projected to go in the first round. I think that shows how much he cares about this opportunity and has his heart in it.
Also, Branch as a great opportunity to learn from newly acquired Safety, Chauncy Gardner-Johnson who is one of the best young safeties in the league.


Round 3: No. 68 (from DEN) – Hendon Hooker, QB, Tennessee
You ever feeling a little uncomfortable and then you let out a massive fart and all of your uneasiness washes away? Yea, well thats the feeling Lions fans got when they landed Hendon Hooker with the 68th pick. QB wasnt a terrible need, but once we got him, a sense of relief was felt across the fanbase. When the Lions ended up getting Goff in the Stafford trade, it was sort of unsaid that Goff was just the bridge before they draft a QB of the future. However Goff has played way better than expectations and less and less fans are calling for a replacment. So, instead of using one of their first round picks on a QB, they waited and got a guy with first round updside! Now, they are in a much more confortable position at QB with a very solid back up.
The Lions used the 68th pick in order to take the former Tennessee quarterback. The pick came just before the Rams and Raiders were scheduled to pick and been teams have been seen as possible landing spots for a quarterback in this year’s draft. Hooker is recovering from a torn ACL, but his doctor recently informed teams that he is expected to be ready to go by the first week of the regular season. With Jared Goff in place as the starter in Detroit, there won’t be any need for Hooker to rush back for what will likely be a redshirt season if all goes according to plan in Detroit.
This pick was safe, exciting, and sets the Lions up with a solid back up QB. The first time that they can say that since they had Shaun Hill.

Round 3: No. 96 (from ARI) – Brodric Martin, DT, Western Kentucky

Before the draft, a need that was discussed as a hole in the Lions defense was interior line. They got their big boy in the middle with nose tackle, Brodric Martin. After starting his career at North Alabama, Martin transferred to Western Kentucky to play his final two seasons at the FBS level. Since 2021, Martin has played in 26 total games, and has managed to contribute 62 total tackles to the Western Kentucky cause. He’s piled up six tackles for-loss as well as four sacks, one fumble recovery and one forced fumble. This move with help the Lions run defense that ranked 4th to last in the NFL last year.

It is no surprise that winning is won in the trenches. The Lions have done a great job of drafting players to build out this line with the likes of Alim McNeill, Isaiah Buggs, and John Cominsky, but with big interior guys like Martin, they usually operate best in a rotation. This move should be huge in terms of depth and opening up even more opportunities for Aiden Hutchison to get to the QB.
This move didn't feel flashy, but it felt needed.

Round 5: No. 152 – Colby Sorsdal, OL, William & Mary

The Lions had to finally wait a bit before this pick due to moving around in the draft and trading away their pick round 4. They elected to add depth to their O-Line by taking Colby Sorsdal out of William and Mary. Sometimes its fun being the big fish in the small pond. Sorsdal started in all 46 games he appeared in during his five-year stint at William & Mary. He spent the duration of his college career at Right Tackle. Sorsdal is the first Tribe player to be drafted since 2016, when the Chicago Bears selected safety DeAndre Houston-Carson in the sixth round.
Serving as an offensive co-captain and starting all 13 games at Right Tackle, Sorsdal anchored an offensive line that helped the Tribe rank third in total rushing offense and fourth in fewest sacks allowed. Behind one of the best offensive line units in the country, the Tribe accumulated an 11-2 record and won the CAA Conference Championship for the first time since 2015.
He will be joining a elite O-line led by Penei Sewell, Frank Ragnow and Taylor Decker. Colby wont start, but he will add in needed depth for a team that's success will only goes as far as their line will take them.

Round 7: No. 219 (from HOU through MIN via PHI) – Antoine Green, WR, North Carolina
With the Lions last pick in a very intense draft, they selected Wide Receiver, Antoine Green out of UNC. Most projected Antoine to be signed to a team after the draft so it is a but of a peculiar pick. In the late 7th round, you are just hoping to take a flier on a guy and hoping they pan out.
The 6-foot-3, 199-pound receiver impressed Detroit's coaching staff at the East-West Shrine Bowl, and has the opportunity to compete for playing time his rookie season. According to NFL Draft Bible, Green is a "technically sound, fluid athlete that can give you a little bit of everything as a wide receiver. Green runs routes, it is as if he is attacking his defender rather than going about his route without considering what the defense is doing. Green has a good release off the line of scrimmage and does not get held up too much when facing press coverage. He uses his hands well to reduce contact against the press and accelerate off the line. He analyzes coverages well and makes quick decisions on how to break down his defender throughout his route. He can read zone defenses and has a knack for finding spaces to make himself an easier target."
With Jameson Williams missing 6 games to start the year, there is an opportunity for Green to poach snaps away from anyone not named Amon-Ra or Marvin Jones. There is also a chance he doesn't make it out of camp. Unlikely, but we will see.


The 2023 NFL draft for the Detroit Lions was a resounding success. They were able to draft 6 times....BEFORE THE FOURTH ROUND!! The extra picks allowed Detroit to really control the draft and move around in a way to get the guys they wanted. They did not care about who they got and when. They just simply got the guys they wanted. After reflecting on its entirety, they landed a lot of great talent. They were able to add a player at every single positional unit and several will end up starting and making an immediate impact.

Look, the Lions are going to Lions so hold your breath a little longer, however Brad Holmes and Jack Campbell have really turned this franchise around and are making them a legit playoff contender. Right now the Lions are favored to win the NFC North for the first time since god knows when. I am projecting a record of 12 and 5 and a NFL North Division Win.

2023.06.03 22:39 Imaginary-Most996 My partner [33f] and I [32m] are weighed down by the stresses of our individual lives and it’s negatively affecting our relationship

I’m not sure where to begin but would like to get some advice on my relationship. My partner and I met last summer and it was love at first sight. Our first date was perfect and two days later we decided to be in a relationship and it’s been pretty great ever since.
I say pretty great because while our love, our collective relationship, is so amazing and beautiful, our separate lives have been so difficult and turbulent.
I have been dealing with health issues for the last 8 years or so that leave me feeling exhausted, fatigue, depressed, anxious, disengaged, and just burned out, but according to every doctor I’ve seen I am perfectly healthy. Last year through some unknown means I seemingly resolved my health issues and felt amazing for about 4-5 months. I woke up springing out of bed and felt so calm, present, peaceful, content, energized and full of joy, I felt like I was finally my old self and what’s a better cherry on top than to find yourself in love?
About a month into our relationship my health fell apart again and I started having debilitating panic attacks, and I would continue to have panic attacks and symptoms that felt like a heart attack for several months, from September through December. This resulted in a lot of time off from work, trips to the ER, lots of follow up testing, and just a rough ride all around.
So my health issues that leave me feeling like a shell of a person and basically incapable of being a happy or productive human being returned a month into our relationship and my life fell apart again. In a couple week span I got Covid, Bell’s palsy and lost my job. I would end up bouncing between jobs for about 4-5 months until I found the “right” job.
I desperately hate my job and am trying to find another one but I’m just so miserable. I’m so miserable and I feel despondent and hopeless and frankly suicidal often.
Which isn’t good for a relationship.
But my partner has been amazing through all of this, supporting me through my health issues, my unemployment and job searches, she even helped me out with rent and hills for a month or two when things were really iffy- it wasn’t easy for her, or us, and has caused some issues but she’s still supportive.
And this entire time she’s going through her own stuff. She’s always stressed out and exhausted, she has a toddler who is just the best kid ever, and I know everyone says that, but our bedtime routine is 15 minutes, he picks up his toys and helps clean up and he doesn’t put up too much of a fight when it’s time to leave the park. He’s really good and she’s done a great job raising him and I’m super honored to be involved because I love that kid and he loves me and I’m learning so much about patience and compassion and it’s so wonderful. But he’s a toddler and it’s hard being a parent. And she doesn’t enjoy her job or make much money and she’s dealing with the emotional fallout from her divorce, and it’s really stressing her out and so everything from there is just more stressful.
So it’s safe to say we are both struggling with our baseline stress levels where we are so stressed out that simply and easy shut like figuring out what to do for dinner becomes a gargantuan and overwhelming and stressful task
And I just want to say I think we make a really good team, we discuss things repsectfully, we don’t ever argue like we’re against each other, we communicate well, we divide up the chores and are constantly doing things for one another.
But at the same time it’s hard working full time and being a parent and trying to take off yourself. It’s not easy.
But things have been really hard lately and we haven’t really been happy or getting along and right now we’re taking some time apart and I love this woman truly but im wondering if we’re good for each other.
We were talking last night and we both agreed that our relationship is good, that we love each other, but it’s our individual lives that are bringing us down and harms my our relationship because we just don’t have the energy we want when we’re not at work and we don’t have the coping skills to not be so stressed out all the time.
But I’m just wondering if it’s fair for us to be together, for me to be with her when she has a child to raise and my life, to me, feels like a burden, I just don’t want to burden them or be a negative influence or take away from her being a mother.
Im just not sure what to do. I feel like I can’t be a real person until I fix my health issues.
Any advice?
TL;DR my partner and I are both really struggling in our own lives and it’s negatively affecting our relationship. I have health issues that make me basically disabled and she is stressed out being a parent and working full time. We haven’t been happy or engaged with each other in a while and I struggle to be present when we’re together

2023.06.03 22:08 OrionLinksComic are we already oversaturated with superheroes in comics too and also what does it have to do with my problem with modern day horror comics?

okay i went to my local comic book store with a friend of mine recently. she is new to comics and started in the time of Corona. she really loves the marvel must have line but the verses comics. like I said it's new. and it was also interesting to hear from my shop owner that his superhero titles aren't selling that well. and the question is why.
I'll start with one thing, here in Germany you're pretty spoiled as a comic fan, if you have the money, but at the same time Panini is a filthy company. the Big Two comics are published and translated here by this bad sandwich, and most of the time they make the stuff pretty expensive. and if your title is expensive few people will buy it precisely because comics are still more niche in this country than yours in the States. but at the same time the selection is bigger, because if something is successful in Franco Belgian comics, it comes straight over to us, the same for Italian and Scandinavian ones. that's even a problem why it's difficult to make your own comics in Germany because you're just being overrun from all sides. and of course if you read Superheroes I'm Coming at the beginning, you would like to have something new.
The thing is, if you don't have much money, you think so too, I'd rather grab what's sticking out of the shelf than the next Batman.
but the thing is, everything can seem kind of ordinary if it's just there too often. in the renaissance even they got tired of the greek tragedies in the theaters, the cinema got the same with musicals and westerns. everything still exists but is no longer dominant and has had to develop anew. Of course, even at the time when there was this problem that there were too many, there were still hits and successes, I think the best westerns are somehow at the end of the glory days of the genre on the big screen. But when you're in a crowd, it's always difficult to stick out. i mean that's why i'm tired of modern day horror comics too.
and before you asks no i don't think they suck, i would even say we are in a golden age of horror comics which not only scares me but also makes me think. and I'm just tired of it. I mean Ice Cream Man, The Nice House on the Lake or Gideon Falls are f****** awesome, but I still cold. it's just like that, everyone is currently making a horror title in some way, especially the comic creators who already have a great reputation anyway. the titles aren't bad I just have the feeling we're already oversaturated with horror for me at least. which is kinda interesting but what i have to say every now and then there are comics that somehow entertain me in the horror area, joe hill sea dogs and basketful of heads and i somehow feel something again.
precisely because it is so many of the horror titles are serious, and then comes one that is just silly gory fun. and you stand out a bit more with it. it's like the time when evil dead 2 or texas chainsaw massacre 2 came out, when it was also the case that horror was very serious or tried to be serious, and then they come and and it's the silliest scary trip ever.
I just want to say that at some point everything seems to be the norm and therefore also boring when there is just too much there, even if every single one of them is good. I think we need to do more of a mix for ourselves, but creators still need to keep in mind just to be a bit weird and not became monotonous because of that.
but what do you think?

2023.06.03 22:01 Nettle15 The misinformation about disability benefits by conservatives is breathtaking

Went out to lunch with a family friend who's a well-known conservative, loves cops, hates welfare, "nobody wants to work anymore", blah blah. I recently found out I have epilepsy, which would qualify me for disability but so far it's not debilitating and I can still do my job.
When I said I was hoping to get a remote job so I didn't have to rely on the bus or asking for rides, she chimed in that people working from home are ruining the job market and they're lazy, I reminded her that her best friend, my mother who was sitting across from her at the table, worked remote and most people who like working from home are more productive because they're happier and have fewer unwanted distractions. She said "oh well that's an exception" and sheepishly changed the subject to...
"Well why don't you just get on disability and start living large" with this gross smug look on her face. I had to tell her that I may be disallowed from driving and if my seizures get worse I might lose my job, but right now I'm stable and I make three times as much money as disability pays out so I wouldn't qualify. She looked confused and said "but my husband's ex-wife is on permanent disability for long-term emotional problems related to her divorce, she brags about it constantly and has loads of income! Disability Queens are the new Welfare Queens!" and I looked her straight in the face and told her "Either she's lying about her disability and is multiple defrauding the government or she's getting under-the-table income elsewhere and using disability as a cover."
She refused to believe me. I showed her the maximum someone on disability can make in our state per our state website and the rules about working while on disability and she said I can just cheat the system and get more. I told her I wasn't interested in being a criminal. She was completely floored that disability fraud is a crime and that it's not the norm for regular disabled people just trying to get by.
Needless to say I won't be going to anymore brunches with her.

2023.06.03 22:00 fourknick8 Updated (6/3) Conquest Pitching Guide

Updating this again based on the last roster update and current as of 6/3
If you don’t know, if you pick your third starter (as listed on pitcher select screen, not roster screen), you’ll face the conquest team’s third best starter (always the same slot as you pick).
This guide then can help you set lefty / righty lineups or just make sure you pick a pitcher you can tee off against and avoid ones you hate.
Fair number of changes from the last roster update. I believe what is below to be accurate, but if anyone catches mistakes let me know and I’ll fix / update.

The Lame Warrior and the Skeleton

The Lame Warrior and the Skeleton

In the days before horses, a party of young Arapahos set off on foot one autumn morning in search of wild game in the western mountains.
They carried heavy packs of food and spare moccasins, and one day as they were crossing the rocky bed of a shallow stream a young warrior felt a sudden sharp pain in his ankle. The ankle swelled and the pain grew worse until they pitched camp that night.
Next morning the warrior's ankle was swollen so badly that it was impossible for him to continue the journey with the others. His companions decided it was best to leave him.
They cut young willows and tall grass to make a thatched shelter for him, and after the shelter was finished they collected a pile of dry wood so that he could keep a fire burning.
"When your ankle gets well," they told him, "don't try to follow us.
Go back to our village, and await our return."
After several lonely days, the lame warrior tested his ankle, but it was still too painful to walk upon.
And then one night a heavy snowstorm fell, virtually imprisoning him in the shelter.
Because he had been unable to kill any wild game, his food supply was almost gone.
Late one afternoon he looked out and saw a large herd of buffalo rooting in the snow for grass quite close to his shelter. Reaching for his bow and arrow, he shot the fattest one and killed it.
He then crawled out of the shelter to the buffalo, skinned it, and brought in the meat.
After preparing a bed of coals, he placed a section of ribs in the fire for roasting.
Night had fallen by the time the ribs were cooked, and just as the lame warrior was reaching for a piece to eat, he heard footsteps crunching on the frozen snow.
The steps came nearer and nearer to the closed flap of the shelter. "Who can that be?" he said to himself. "I am here alone and unable to run, but I shall defend myself if need be." He reached for his bow and arrow.
A moment later the flap opened and a skeleton clothed in a tanned robe stood there looking down at the lame warrior.
The robe was pinned tight at the neck so that only the skull was visible above and skeleton feet below.
Frightened by this ghost, the warrior turned his eyes away from it.
"You must not be frightened of me," the skeleton said in a hoarse voice.
"I have taken pity on you.
Now you must take pity on me.
Give me a piece of those roast ribs to eat, for I am very hungry."
Still very much alarmed by the presence of this unexpected visitor, the warrior offered a large piece of meat to an extended bony hand.
He was astonished to see the skeleton chew the food with its bared teeth and swallow it.
"It was I who gave you the pain in your ankle," said the skeleton.
"It was I who caused your ankle to swell so that you could not continue on the hunt.
If you had gone on with your companions you would have been killed.
The day they left you here, an enemy war party made a charge upon them, and they were all killed.
I am the one who saved your life."
Again the skeleton's bony hand reached out, this time to rub the warrior's ankle.
The pain and swelling vanished at once.
"Now you can walk again," the ghost said.
"Your enemies are all around, but if you will follow me I can lead you safely back to your village."
At dawn they left the shelter and started off across the snow, the skeleton leading the way.
They walked through deep woods, along icy streams, and over high hills.
Late in the afternoon the skeleton led the warrior up a steep ridge.
When the warrior reached the summit, the ghost had vanished, but down in the valley below he could see the smokes of tepees in his Arapaho village.

hiii :) so i want to make an iron farm near to my minecraft base, i just don't know where to put it. my base is on a massive hill, y=120. I can build it to the side of my house, or I can build up a bit. I have an area mined flat that could work, I just don't know what is best in terms of spawn rates. If I put it in the sky and AFK up there, will my rates be better because mobs won't be rendered? idk the science behind it. anyone who does please hmu. i need iron. thank you :)))

2023.06.03 21:35 mh699 Noob question - downshifting before a hill

For the last 2 months I've been riding my neighbor's Trek FX1. It has 2 front rings and an 8 speed cassette. The trail I ride is mostly flat but with a few steep hills. On the flat portions, I usually ride with the big ring in the front and the 3rd largest ring in the back, but that's usually too difficult to do the steep hills with. I have a hard time intuitively downshifting prior to the hill - if I shift to the smaller ring in the front first, I lose my footing on the pedals because of how easy it is. If I shift to a smaller ring on the back before downshifting in the front, I lose my cadence.
What would be the best approach here? I've tried waiting until I've just started the climb to downshift, but my chain doesn't seem to care for that and I still frequently lose my footing. Do I just need to buy actual cycling shoes with clips at this point?

2023.06.03 21:14 FluidCalligrapher261 Armenia is awesome

Hi everyone.
I just spent one week in Armenia and I can confidently say this was my best trip so far (and I've traveled quite a bit). I know that every country has its problems, and a tourist most likely won't experience most of them. But, as a tourist, I found Armenia to be a great country.
A few years ago I read a post about Armenia on some random travelling blog and, for some reason, I decided some day I'd go there. I didn't know what to expect, except for some ancient history and great landscapes.
I was very surprised when I arrived last Sunday, late at night, in Yerevan and found a city pulsating with life, with music. Everyone in the streets just enjoying life, talking with friends, eating something. A very positive first impression.
Next day I spent the day walking around the city going to the main touristic spots and again I was amazed. What a clean city. Cleaner than most cities I've visited. And a friendly, educated and organized people. And so many flowers.
During the following days, I rode all around the country. From the beautiful sights from Aragat's slopes to the peaceful green forests around Dilijan and Lake Sevan. From the imponent carved walls of Geghard Monastery, to the wonderful rock formations of the cliffs near Garni. And so, so many other wonderful places. The red rocks of Noravank, the ancient Haghartsin, the clear waters of Shaki, and the endless hills and mountains on the way to Tatev.
And what a sight is Tatev. I'd never pick a single place in Armenia as the most beautiful, but what a sight Tatev is. Not only that, but all the way I was daydreaming about exploring more of these mountains, in Armenia and beyond.
Tomorrow I'll fly back home, but I'm already eager to come back.

2023.06.03 21:02 Radiant_Signature940 [real] (06/03/23) hashtag?

Hitting the road today. I’ve been away from home since my birthday. Making a stop up North to visit my lovely friend and her new man before I head home on Sunday. I love the bus ride from Bellingham to Seattle; I equally love the Ride from Seattle to Olympia. I like to listen to music and think about nothing. It makes me feel the way that I feel in airports…. I exist, but barely. No one knows me. No one know about my messes or my past. For a few hours I don’t feel quite so heavy. Anyway, I’m packed up and I’m dressed. Makeup is on and my hair is still wet. It’s going to be wet for awhile. I can hear the babies squeaking like little dinosaurs in the other room. #1 and I snuggled, watched some weird dinosaur movie on Netflix and ate popcorn while bestie did homework last night. #1 and I were playing a game where we had to whisper because the dinosaurs were going to eat us. I loved it. It made my mommy heart not hurt so bad.
Bestie gave me a hug after she finished her homework “…thank you for being my best friend; tonight I realized I really, really have a best friend and it made me so happy”. Hurt girls never feel truly safe no matter how intensely they love.
Earlier in the week other bestie had a panic attack when she thought I might not make the trek up north. I haven’t been feeling well and my shoulder pain is a 10. I considered not going but when I heard the panic in her voice I knew that she needed me to meet this guy. I bought the tickets and told her I’d be there on Saturday night. She cried with relief when I told her and it reminded me that hurt girls don’t trust other people’s word.
I think this is probably why I have such ferocious bonds with these women. Sometimes I think they like me a little too much. I’m not quite sure what they like about me but I won’t question it too loudly lest they realize I’m not so great. I’m grateful for their unconditional love. Bestie held me until 2am while I cried last night, and then moments later we talked about how Jesus could be a schizophrenic alien and how maybe schizophrenics are the divine ones. We laughed until we cried some more; at 3am I wiped away my tears and I fell asleep with a heart that didn’t hurt quite as deeply as it did before. Sometimes I think that if this is the lasting love that was set apart for me…. Then I am truly lucky. I never imagined I’d have such precious women in my life.
In other news, my mama heart is broken. My own #1 is struggling deeply. He reminds me of me at that age and I so wish I could dig him out. He cried “mama mama mama” over and over again yesterday. It took all of my self control to not buy a ticket back to Columbus. What mother let’s her son hurt like this? Deep in my core I know he has to go through it. It occurred to me for the first time that my child might die before me and I am truly scared for his life. He called my evil ex for help. I’m grateful that my ex is kind to my son. I’m grateful that he is going to help him even though it scares me. Potato says that when my ex asks about me, he tells him he never talks to me. It reinforces the narrative that I’m a piece of shit and that’s okay because I am. I bet helping my lost boy in my absence really gives that narcissist a gigantic boner. But you know what, if my boy gets help then I don’t care what Narcissist thinks. And that’s how it is with my kids.
Chef guy told Bestie to tell me “goodbye. I’m in love with you🤪😜😝”. Which was pretty funny. He tried really hard to get my attention but I was pretty cold. (Bitter. Vindictive. Drunk. Ice Queen. Two cunt.) (I kinda like the ice Queen one though…. Makes me feel less fragile). I’m not interested in being vulnerable again. I concede. When I found out chef guy had a crush on me I was flattered, but when I look at him I think “how are you going to hurt me?”. I haven’t been dating or talking to anyone but different dudes have approached me at different times. Bellingham guy got the picture and I added his number to the graveyard. English Bus guy asked me out so many times I had to take a picture of his phone number so he would believe me when I told him I would call him. I didn’t. And I won’t. Bitter. I can’t see anyone without wondering what it feels like to have my heart broken by them. It makes my stomach churn. I’ll do it alone, thanks.
My boss has been incredibly tender and kind. I had record sales (for myself) last month and got a kudo email for some sales pitches he was cc’d in. He checks on me and asks me if I’m okay; “remember your worth”. It’s nice to be thought of and while I don’t necessarily need to be handled with satin gloves, I like that he does. Makes me feel like I’m not trash. Even though I am. (Two cunts)
When I get home, I have a lot of plans for myself and my alone time. Hopefully the ghosts are gone now. I need a bigger sketchbook, new poscas and better colored pencils. I have a lot of ideas but I’m scared that I won’t commit. I haven’t bought food in a month and I know the apartment is trashed. If sports guy from the bar texts, I’m gonna ignore him. Work Bestie and I start our routine on Monday. It will be nice to have a routine commitment. Still scouring the net for a puppie pie. I want a King Charles cavalier- I’m going to name it “sterling”, after that town in Alaska. I tried to adopt Sherman but when he attacked my feet and made me bleed I decided against it. Poor Sherman. He had been beaten his whole life. I kinda get it. I don’t want anyone fucking with me anymore either. I need to start looking for costumes for comic con. Since we will be there for the whole weekend, I can wear the vest costume on Friday and the ball gown on Saturday. Drink and draw after 8pm with that one comic book artist with Dark Horse. Something to look forward to.
Anyway, it’s time to hit the road. More later I suppose.

2023.06.03 20:41 Pro-4K Difficult one!

I’m trying to find a really old movie. It’s been several years since I’ve seen it, so I’ll do my best to describe it, but it won’t be great.
Year unknown, somewhere in 50’s or 60’s was when it was produced, but it wouldn’t hurt to look for movies from the 40’s.
There’s a murder near a koi pond and during the struggle, the murdered guy loses his glasses in the pond in the back yard of a mansion owned by a really old guy that lives with his daughter and grand daughter. The body is moved and they try to clean up any evidence, but they don’t notice the glasses that fell in the pond (we’ll come back to this later)
The gun used to kill the guy ended up being owned by the daughter living in the home and she’s afraid she’ll go to jail.
She makes her way to the office of an Attorney and he lets her stay there for the evening. A detective comes by asks if the attorney knows about this woman who is a murder suspect. The atty lies and the detective leaves. The attorney then start to investigate the murder on his own and is lead all over California looking for suspects. There’s a lot of talk about water distribution to various areas in California and how they’re re-routing water away from farms and it’s a business scheme worth millions of dollars. There’s a chase scene where two guys are chasing the attorney and the woman in a car and the baddies get shot and go down into a ravine. Cops later find the bodies and start comparing the rounds used. They were different from her gun, but she thought it was the same gun used (that she owned) in the original murder.
At one point the attorney gets attacked up on a hill overlooking the city in a dirt parking lot.
Eventually it comes out that the grand father is a creep and he used to m*lest his daughter. She was trying to get out of that mansion because she was worried he was messing around with her daughter as well.
Anyway, long story short, they figure it all out and are about to take all the evidence, including the glasses they found to the police when the woman (can’t remember why) tries to drive away in a car and is killed. The movie ends with the grand father taking custody of the young girl.
If you’ve seen this movie, you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about. I can’t figure it out… it’s actually a great movie, written well and the bad guy wins in the end, which again, is unusual because the only time the bad guy wins, is if he’s the one you’re rooting for throw out the movie. The grandfather was hardly seen in the movie.
When you’re watching the movie, there’s so much going on at once, it’s as if you’re watching 3 different movies that all mingle together.
Anyway, I hope you all can help.

I did not have a private counselor and I really felt that I was content with my essays (along with the rest of my application).
Good luck, and I wish you all the best!

2023.06.03 20:28 RafflesiaArnoldii Reactivity III: Seeing it coming

Reactivity III: Seeing it coming
Welcome to this episode of ‘I read Enneagram Literature so you don’t have to’.
So one of the first things they tell you about deescalating conflict situations is that the number 1 thing to do is to make youre that you don’t get triggered & escalated yourself.
According to the so-called Law of Requisite Variety, the person who is the most flexible has the greatest chance to influence the outcome of a situation, and firing off your habitual pattern is the opposite of flexibility – its the best way to end up in the exact same argument with your spouse that you’re always in and that kind of feels like its the same one you had with all your exes and maybe even your parents because it’s hitting all those olf familiar pain points and fault lines.
So, how do we avoid this? The more set off you get the harder it becomes, after all these darn patterns are quite entrenched for many years with the punch of many past hurts behind them.
So one thing that’s been suggested is to try to spot your reactivity in its early stages, when it’s just starting to get going.
For this, it helps to try to note & then learn to recognize the specific emotional state and physical sensations that precede things going sideways, so that when you start feeling it you can take a deep belly breath, pause, Mindfully Observe (TM), interrupt/distract yourself with something random or whatever works for you to stop going into the usual loop.
Thus I want to note that to effectively do this you’d have to get a feel for what it feels like for you specifically, and probably on the first attempts you will only notice sort of in hindsight after you’ve already fired off – you’ve got to connect the words to the actual sensations that is meant by it & it’s more important to hone in on what ticks off you specifically than to be a perfect example specimen of your type, this is more helpful if its more individual.
That said, the book author has recorded some general tendencies based on what his clients report, so here are some general pointers of what to look for at least to start with, before you get a grasp on your individual ‘answer’ & can let that take precedence.
Maybe before you keep reading, try to stop & come up with an answer yourself first. What are you usually feeling before you get in a situation where you just react? What particularsituational cues set you off? Can you pinpoint what physical sensations this is usually accompanied by?
Maybe your being setoff or triggered looks like on of the following:
Chances are it concerned something that is flagrantly wrong that needs mentioning and correcting, or it might have something to do with unfairness, a lack of accountability or irresponsibility.
At some point, you might have launched into some kind of unrelenting, unforgiving condemnation of it. The judgement seems absolute; You feel rife with conviction. You can viscerally feel how wrong or disgusting it is.
Physically, you might have taken on a constricted, rigid stance, you might notice a tension in your face, body and jaw. Underneath it, that tension might be a long time’s worth of pent-up anger and resentment straining against its binds.
But your feelings, or anyone else’s, for that matter, are probably not on your radar, just the automatic, unshakeable judgement you have passed.
At some point, you’ve slipped into relating to the other person from a superior position, delivering the obvious, inarguable truth to them like the voice of the metatron.
It probably started as situation where you were expecting to get that good feeling of being able to help others or receive a positive reaction from them, but then it didn’t happen.
You might have been holding your breath, bracing for the others’ reaction, waiting to exhale when you would finally get the satisfaction of a job well done, but something’s in your way.
One moment youre relishing in that good feeling you get when you know just what the best thing to do is and will get to show your care & affection, and then you’re just left with this sense of tightness and anxiety in your heart.
Maybe there is what you perceive to be some frustrating impediment that kept you from helping, or, you feel that your goodwill has gone unappreciated.
It hurts. Its distressing.
Maybe to escape an underlying feeling that you’ve been rejected, humiliated or found dispensible, you slip into a kind of superior position of someone who did everything right but was unfairly slighted: You bring all this goodwill, nice intentions & dedication, and in return, you get hurt like this??
And when you feel that pain, and sense of being faced with ingratitude, you feel very much justified and rightfully entitled to react, to call out the other on all you did for them whiley they didn’t return it. At some point the attention shifted from whater intentions you had regarding the other person’s emotions to your own: Your hurt, your distress, your wounded feelings.
For once you feel justified in your ispleasure and in expressising it openly for everyone to see, because after all its the other person who wronged you, and after all you did for them...
The straw that broke the camels back was probably a situation where you saw the path to accomplishing your tasks and goals clearly before you, as a satisfying straight line from A to B… and then something got in the way. Or, you have done the thing and no one’s noticed. The approval or admiration that you’ve been expected just didn’t materialize. Or perhaps it’s a smaller obstacle, you are trying to work your charme on someone but you’re not suceeding at making the impression you were going on.
Whatever it was, at that point you probably launched yourself into some sort of impatience, agitation or frustration.
There might be a blinders-like effect when you’re focussed on the desired result. You’ve got to keep pushing, with the ellbows if necessary, and you have to come out looking good and having it under control.
Feelings and heartfelt receptivity that you might otherwise have featured in take the backseat for now in the name of competitive experience.
But underneath it all, this sweep of reactivity may be fueled by an anxious, distressed sense of impatience that is felt in your chest, and perhaps a bit of feeling unseen, ignored, not approved of.
But you don’t got time for this, or anybody else’s feelings, you gotta keep pushing, faster, harder, relentlessly, until the deed is done.
You’ve probably just been dissapointed. Again.
You don’t know how you allowed yourself to believe that this time, you might finally have been getting close to what you were looking for, but now you’ve fallen from the clouds and whatever moud you were in has abruptly and suddenly taken a plunge to miseryland.
You can’t help but notice everything that should be here but isn’t, everything that’s missing, that’s not enough, all the ways that you or others have fallen short.
Everything is terrible, it has always been terrible and always will be terrible, everything is just made of revolting terribleness.
What sparked this off was maybe a sharply felt realization of how your woes were going unheard, how you were going unseen once again, overlooked, dismissed or offensively disregarded.
Maybe you lash out and let them all hear about it and lambast them mercilessly in your spite and disgust, or you’ve stormed out, slamming the door behind you – or perhaps you’re just sitting there & sulking, marinating in your lamentations and your picking apart of yourself, the other people involved, and everything else in sight that just repulses and offends you, but in the end, when the fire has burned itself out and you’re left with the ashes, you’re left with the mournful yearning for your crushed, impossible dream that has once again slipped out of reach, longing for, and feeling yourself far from that which really matters, cut off from the ignorant bliss that everyone else seems to get to wade in.
Most likely, you are feeling hounded, pressured or put-upon.
It’s beginning to look like you may not be able to hold onto to all of your time, privacy or independence.
Or, someone’s come bargin into your personal space with jarring suddenness, is pelting you with invasive questions and/or and unloaded a bunch of demands on you that you feel inadequate to anticipate, let alone live up to.
Another common trigger is having your attempt to contribute some information blown off, (“no one wants to hear that nerd stuff!”) which on some level might register as a personal rejection.
The response is tendentially to pull away or disengage. You don’t care about all of this crap anyway and want nothing more to do with it. You need out, now. You can’t seem to get far away enough from any other living being, you can’t stand it if there’s so much as someone looking at you.
It might be felt as a sort of contracting sensation in your chest, a desire to hide, to shrink away to some corner, or into yourself if there’s nowhere else to go.
Under that there might be a lowkey panic of what you’re going to have to lose or give up, which is of course going to put you into a counterproductive defensive stance, some assumed script where you’re some tiny flimsy thing incapable of resisting and they’re going to devour you.
Others might then interpret this as you pushing them away or playing hard to get.
A common sign here that you’re going off is concern with an over-focussed magnification of something: A perceived discrepancy or incongruity, a possible danger, a nagging little doubt… whatever it is, you probably can’t stop thinking about it, thinking up pessimistic scenarios or fixating on your lack of preparedness.
Either way your thoughts are dominated by this preoccupation and the longer this goes on the more you work yourself into a frenzied state of being on-edge.
On the physical side this comes with all the symptoms of an adrenaline rush, emotionally it might be experienced as caution, anxiety, hostililty, suspicion, frustation or an explosive cocktail of all of these just waiting to ignite.
Sometimes you might touch the kindling off yourself by provoking or testing the other, confronting them with accusation or trying to take control of the situation.
(Note: Interestingly, this type 6 blogger wrote a whole article on the phenomenon of overfixating on details when worked up & her journey of trying to get from that to what she labels ‘productive thinking’ – usingStabile’s terminology here)
For 7 the characteristic reactivity is quintessentially a flight response, and as such set off by a sense of constriction, limitation, being trapped.
In an animal you might see this when there’s a concrete something to run away from but in us humans with our newfangled abstract thinking it can be caused by anything we see as trapping, caging or restraining us – such as unwanted feelings, unwelcome facts, infringements on our freedom, and what we consider part of living an unrestrained, unburdened live such as our sense of bouyancy, being able to stay positive, flexible, upbeat, stimulated, farseeing, having all the options & possibilities etc.
This includes when another person comes to you as a bearer of bad news and expresses or brings up feelings that you don’t want to engage with.
Underlying is often some anxiety about missing out & getting stuck in deprivation, sadness, boredom, helplessness, inferiority etc.
Experientially this might register as sense of anxious frustration, some constriction around the solar plexus and an influx of jittery, restless energy and heat as your body lowkey prepares to run for the hills. You might actually feel some urge to move, go do something else, change the topic, get out of the conversation etc. back to the ‘safety’ of what’s okay and positive. At this point your focus is mostly going to be on yourself and how you will avoid being caught by the figurative tiger and there is going to be far less mental bandwith to worry about the needs of anybody else.
What set you off was probably some kind of perceived violation: Someone has overstepped your boundaries and needs to be put back in line, or they are trying to overpower you and make you dance to their tune.
Another trigger might be things going against your will on your ‘turf’ – eg. someone doing the overpowering or violating to someone you care about, doing something on your watch that they’re not supposed to be doing, or otherwise going against your personal sense of justice, truth or fairness, right in from of your salad.
Physically this might feel like an intense rush of energy and heat. Sometimes there can be an outright exuberant or thrilling quality to it, a sense of relishing in the fight. Other times it’s pure survival and the response happens without thinking at all.
Either way the reaction is very fast and the resulting action almost immediate: Ready, aim, fire.
Once fired up, the effect is a bit like that of blinkers on a racehorse:
Your going to get your way and shut down what you don’t want, making use of whatever leverage you have in this situation or the weak points you might notice about your adversary (and there’s definitely a shift to an adversarial mindset) – often people don’t expect pushback and buckle right away, though this can be seen by others as steamrolling, intimidating or even domineering.
As a 9, your reactivity probably rather takes the form of inertia, of digging in your heels to stay in place rather than an activating force that gets you marching off to tear someone a new one, as many of the other types might. You’ve probably launched yourself into some kind of stubborn resistance because you feel you’re being pushed into action or forced into conflict when you don’t want it. Maybe you feel like you’re being pushed around, or that something that is really important to you personally is not being considered, that you’te being overlooked while no one seems to notice or care & just letting you & your interests be trampled underfoot.
It’s not rare for such a moment to have been preceded by situations where you had previously decided that it wasn’t worth stating your needs, asking to be included & considered & didn’t take any steps to ensure you’re on people’s priority list. You figured that it wasn’t worth it or you didn’t mind, but then something happened that really rubbed the salt in, or touched near some priority that you really don’t want to give up.
On the physical level this might be felt as a sense of leaden heavyness in your body; feelings wise you might experience despair, resignation, apathy and defeat. In any case it’s probably going to extinguish whatever motivation, vibrancy or vitality you might otherwise have had going on.

2023.06.03 19:41 TapoutKing666 The Dutch Crunch Bread

If you’re wondering about the origins of the beloved Dutch Crunch Bread, I’d like to offer you a detailed recounting of its rich history:
First, lets roll the clock back to Denmark in 1940. Operation Weserübung had just started under the command of General Nikolaus von Falkenhorst. Unbeknownst to the Dutch citizens, Der Fürher himself visited the front lines. Of course, Adolph was accompanied by his closest SS officers and the best bodyguards stolen Jewish gold could buy.
Hitler and his beloved General Falkenhorst would watch their Panzer tanks run over the bodies of fallen Dutch enemies from afar through their binoculars. Even though they were a ways away from the action, they could hear the sounds of the Danish bones snapping and breaking underneath the tank treads.
One day Hitler was having himself a lite lunch atop a hill overlooking the massacre and had a revelation as he bit into his sandwich—at the very moment a tank crushed another body. One of his closest guards gave this account later during the Nuremberg Trials:
“Der Fürher bit into the pastrami sandwich and exclaimed ‘Unt Mein Got! Get me the best baker in Düsseldorf!”
The famous baker, who would remain unnamed, arrived on the front lines with his crew of the best culinary experts of the Third Reich. It was there where he and Hitler himself designed what would later become the Dutch Crunch bread. The leader of The Fatherland wanted to give his people a fun and delicious remembrance of their victory over the Danish resistance fighters. The bread had to be crunchy, and crunchy it was!
As they engineered the most famous loaf of the Wehrmacht, the culinary experts used the natural surroundings of the battlefield to influence its design. One day a bread expert tripped over something while walking through the Danish wastelands. It appeared to be a civilian who was previously flattened by a tank tread. The unique design across what used to be their back and midsection would be used as inspiration for the Dutch Crunch’s signature crust. The bread itself visually imitated the appearance of a body after getting crushed by a Panzer. It was a big hit with the Rhinelanders.
There was only one problem, it was TOO big of a hit. It’s popularity caused a huge demand; which the Nazi Bakers couldn’t keep up with. This is when the famous Düsseldorf confectionist came up with a wonderful idea. He knew where there was plenty of large ovens and free labor to operate them.
The Sachsenhausen labor camp was chosen as the headquarters of the Dutch Crunch bakery. It is said that some of the residual human remains could be tasted upon the sweet, crunchy top of the bread. It wasn’t planned to be this way, but those ovens were too hard to clean. Especially when your labor force is so skinny and malnourished. Food critics all throughout the Axis of Evil approved of the sweet crust, even speculating that cremated human remains still retain a sweetness in the ash and fat drippings.
Throughout the remainder of the second Great War, the denizens of The Fatherland would enjoy this new crunchy loaf. Its story was nearly lost to history until two unlikely students attending Northern Michigan University found an old book full of German recipes in the library in 1964. The discovery of the Dutch Crunch bread caused a spark of inspiration.
They would later become the founders of Togo’s Great Sandwiches. Tom Neumann and Gordon Reed were known sympathizers of the struggles of National Socialism, and attended many of their rallies throughout the US. They even provided catering in the form of sandwich platters.
They were such a big hit with the Neo-Nazis of America, they were gifted a crate of stolen Jewish gold by an unknown person somewhere in the jungles of South America. This would help finance the expansion of the Togos brand, making it the popular sandwich shop franchise it is today!
So, now every time you take a bite out of a large number nine hot pastrami on the Dutch Crunch bread—savor it! The ovens might be different and the labor force now wears T shirts instead of torn potato sacks… But! the lunchtime experience Adolph Hitler created all those years ago still lives on—inside every loaf!

2023.06.03 19:04 allofmywatdotjpg 28 [F4F] Seattle/Everett/Washington - Looking for the Vi to my Caitlyn for GAY GIRL SUMMER :3

Disclaimers: I am married - my husband and I are ethically non-monogamous and date separately (he has his own girlfriend he is fully invested in). I am looking for a girlfriend for myself. If ya don't like dick, cool. Expectations are important. Given that I am married and live with my husband, there is only so much time in the world I can give you. I try to be as realistic with my expectations as possible and would like the same from you. While sleepovers every week aren't in the cards for us, going out to dinner and having a relaxing (or not so relaxing) evening could be a substitute. That said, I am very much a homebody and texting all day is a GO. I am also very introverted and am drained by others easily and I generally do not mesh well with heavily extroverted people.
Here is my face, 'cause that's pretty important. I am also living my BEST kawaii strawberry life with this look. I am petite at a towering 5'3'' and 110~ lbs. I am very much attracted to similarly petite, cis-f femme women (qt goth gf pls?). I've been watching the newest season of The Ultimatum and...apparently I'm also really attracted to masc women and enbies. So basically, if this post resonates with you please shoot your shot! :) Men need not apply as this is clearly an F4F post. I prefer someone local to Seattle and am not looking for a long distance partner at this time.
Sexually, I'm definitely more of a sub and would prefer someone who's either dominant in bed or a switch though I'm not a very sexual person. Not particularly interested in any TPE 24/7 arrangements but I do enjoy various aspects of D/s throughout daily life. Each dynamic is unique and we can create something that works best for us :) ...I do, however, really want a cute girl to sit on my face. Or play something on your computer while I chill under your desk, borednignored style. If you work at Hot Topic, please just fucking message me.
I am hoping to find someone who is just as excited about me as I am excited about them. Matching someone's energy is crucial - if you're excited to talk to me, I'm excited to talk to you :3 I want us to be that disgusting couple with the matching anime pfps who uwus to each other. Let us be the physical embodiment of creepyasterisks but it's acceptable because we're attractive. I'm not necessarily looking for a laundry list of particular traits in an individual - what I'm looking for is a particular feeling. I want to connect with someone on a deeper level beyond just sharing common interests. To me, being able to make someone laugh is one of the most important parts in any relationship, romantic or otherwise. If we can make each other laugh over text on a regular basis, that's when you know you have something special. I want to be getting weird looks from nearby onlookers as I laugh not so silently to myself over some dumb joke the two of us share. That said, having common interests is important as well. I'm a big fan of video games (RPGs, ARPGs, RTS, maybe FPS if you can convince me) and I think it's pretty crucial that you are as well. Path of Exile, League of Legumes Legends, Diablo, WoW, and whatever the hell you want to pick up I will try (I may be kicking and screaming, though. Branching out to new games is hard). I'm playing LoL just about daily at the moment and would LOVE to have another partner to play with! Also, maybe even Diablo 4??! I've tried to pursue people who aren't into video games in the past and it makes the relationship a lot more difficult to sustain. I am also quite vain and take a lot of pride in my appearance - I'd love to have a gym buddy and/or someone to appreciate my need to constantly buy fashionable (?) active wear. I'm pretty into fitness and being healthy and go to the gym about 4-5 times per week. Other interests include skincare/nail polish/makeup, body modification (I have stretched ears and quite a few piercings and recently got started on my full sleeve!), laughing at my own jokes, trashy TV (Love is Blind and just about any dating show on Netflix are my guilty pleasures!), and great food. Tell me about your latest D&D character and give me your best character voice. I am OBSESSED with my two cats and I love them almost more than life itself. I love to voice and video call so let's hop in a call and stare at each other like normal people do (what?).
I want us to be able to hang out in the same room doing our own thing and it be comfortable. I've recently heard this described as parallel play. Awkward silences? No such thing. Pausing what we're doing every now and then to show the other something we've come across on reddit somewhere only to return to what we were doing without a second thought. Communication and honesty are paramount to me and I value both highly in my relationships - I'm not about the whole "I'm gonna tell my partner I'm fine but I'm not really fine and I want them to ask about it" bullshit. If you're feeling some kind of way, let's talk about it like adults. No one's perfect and some conversations can be difficult, so if we need some kind of key word or phrase to alert the other we need to have A ConversationTM , let's do that.
I am an open book and will answer just about any question you throw at me. Looking forward to hearing from you :)

2023.06.03 18:32 BigTradeDeal69_420 Best breakfast tacos in NORTH Seattle?

Every weekend I have the same dilemma…where are the best breakfast tacos and burritos in North Seattle?
Any other good spots that I’m missing for simple, protein+egg+cheese breakfast tacos?
Jacks BBQ has the best breakfast tacos, but they only serve it on weekdays and I have to trek to SLU for that.

2023.06.03 18:16 Starmork Disc selection for left to right slope.

When we see a left to right slope, or some kind of hilly terrain like that, is it best to throw a more overstable disc? I have noticed that if I have to throw and there is a hill or slope that is left to right, my Tee Bird and Explorer seem to fight against the aforementioned slope. It’s almost like it’s riding a wave. In addition, if I throw an understable disk with the same slope, I turn the mess out of it.
If there is any truth behind this, what would be the physics of this? I only ask because I keep seeing it happening at my home course.

2023.06.03 18:06 Wr300F OBS 7.3 EGTs

Wondering if I've reached the limits of a mostly stock 7.3.
1996 zf5 4wd stock with 6637, TS6, 3inch downpipe, stock exhaust otherwise.
Towing my toy hauler (10k lb loaded up) I'm having to babysit EGTs.
It cruises fine on flats, but any incline or hard acceleration it can get to 1400 pretty quick.
Stock tune on the chip is the best for keeping the EGTs low, but they can still get high quickly on hills.
It can go 75 all day on the flats in 5th gear at like 1k EGT
I have noticed it's hard to even keep any speed and safe EGTs while going up decent inclines.
I have no major boost leaks and up pipes aren't leaking.
I have a tiny boost leak on the intake plenum, but it's really small.... Barely noticeable with soap and water..
Turbo appears to be in good shape, no play in the bearings, no oil leaks, etc.
I bought the truck used and my first diesel so I have no comparison.
Truck over all seems healthy, Its had maintenance done it's whole life, there's nothing obviously wrong with the truck that I can find, no codes, vitals seem fine on scan tools, etc.
I think I'm just at the limits for a stock truck at high altitude?
Time for intercooler? Turbo upgrade? Remove cat?
I bought the truck from an older gentleman with complete history and it was 100% bone stock, literally nothing was upgraded in any capacity...or any aftermarket anything.
