2023.06.03 13:16 Del_ice Divine game

There are plenty of divine figures and each of them has a vision of how the world must look like and mortals they want to succeed. There are many disagreements within godly community. Compramissions can't be made, but war of such powerful beings would demolish the whole universe and looking for new one would be tiresome. Instead, every group of divine figures in any universe have something, that looks like game. Such games have different names and rules, but always are about manipulating mortals to achieve their goals without direct interventions. They may look like game of chess, but they aren't even remotely similar.
Members of divine game in Dream SMP:
  1. DreamXD. First guardian of Dream SMP. The one, who created it's world and gave it the name. Created the rules for it's divine game, that every other members agreed with. One of three best players. Stole Foolish from Mother Innit(she didn't mind it). Pretends to be divine patron of Dream, but in fact patronise George. He believe that stories have meaning only if they have end and so want every mortal to die, bringing the end to his perfect symphony
  2. Mother Innit. Goddess of Life. One of three best players. In fact, she was so good, that XD could outsmart her only after years of trying to put her guard down. Divine patron of Tommy. Want the world to evolve on it's own, but will make sure, that her son would be safe and happy. Brought Kristin, her business(if it can be called like that) partner, to Game
  3. Kristin. Goddess of Death. Qualified player, but does not take game seriously. She has her own realm to give little care about the world of living. Divine patron of Philza and, basically, just tries to make sure, that he will be happy in the end. During game, give some advices to Sally
  4. Sally. Goddess of Ocean. Has literally no idea how to play, but tries her best(and still every move is terrible). At first was divine patron of Wilbur, but lost faith in him and began to patronize Fundy. It didn't help him mich. Youngest of Gods, if we don't count Karl Major. Appreciate Kristin's mentoring
  5. Karl Major. God of Time. At first, was just ordinary Karl Jacobs, the Time Traveler. After Incident learnt everything about time traveling that Inbetween could teach and spent so many years trying to fix everything with those powers, but failing every time. Each time he tried, he lost parts of connection to the Time(he learnt, how to keep memories, but sacrifices are needed), until ascended above it. Now, tries to create the best timeline from new position. Divine patron of Karl Minor, his younger version. Stole Overseers of Inbetween and Other Side from DreamXD. Dream didn't like it. While others play "Chess", he plays "5D chess with multi universal time traveling", still failing in most timelines
  6. Blood God. Pretty self-explanatory(Not just blood tho, power, rage, war and justice all are his symbols. In a way, Nether is his domain). Divine patron if Techno. With Mother Innit about allowing the world to evolve on it's own, but want to create a system, that will make this evolving just and fair. Created a fragile faction with Kristin And Mother Innit due to similar views
  7. Egg. Creature of Corruption. Pet of DreamXD. NOT A PLAYER, but comes from time to time to flip the table. When it happens, everyone shout at it and tries to put away.

Ripped a pad off of the battery connector
Does anyone know where the center pad of the battery connector on a 5.5g 64MB board leads to? I accidentally ripped the pad off of mine doing a solder job, and now it doesn’t charge anymore. I’m assuming this is the cause and if it is, I can just bridge the pin to wherever that leads with some enameled copper wire. The board pictured is not the one in question, I included it just to show the bit I was referring to. Thank you everyone for the help!

2023.06.03 12:48 MrSelfDestruct32 Would I be DQ’d from a law enforcement job?

I suffered a pretty bad injury playing High school football and was put on opiate medication to treat pain. Naturally when you’re placed on this medication for any length of time you become physically dependent, which I did. I had to go to outpatient rehab to come off the medication. It’s been almost six years now since I went into treatment and came off the medication. Would this DQ me from a law enforcement job? Other than this I’ve never had any run ins with the law besides a couple traffic violations, and have never really done any other drugs besides smoking cannabis on occasion many years ago. These days I’ve completely turned my life around, I have started a family, and I’m in fairly good physical and mental health. I have experience working in mid-level management for a large grocery chain for many years, and currently work in loss prevention for a large multinational corporation. My dream since childhood has always been to become a police officer but after I got hurt I truly thought that dream would never happen. However now that I’m years out from rehabilitating both my body and my mind I’m wondering to myself if this dream is still possible. That being said I don’t want to waste my time on a pipe dream. With my past, would any agency even consider hiring me?

Mr July isn't boring - he's one of us!
David Morgan, 72, from the Cotswolds, has the world's largest traffic cone collection and features in July.
He began collecting in 1986 and now has more than 500 around his house, including a Malaysian cone he found washed up on a beach in Sicily and a 1956 Lynvale rubber cone from Scotland.
'Some people probably think it's dull. If I go to dinner parties and tell people I'm a cone collector they quickly move on,' he said.
'My children are slightly embarrassed by my collection. I store them in the shed, the garage, the greenhouse and even under the bed. Luckily they stack well.
'I carry traffic cones with me in the car and if I see a rare one I ask if I can swap it.'

2023.06.03 12:27 Mad_Creator Gorm's Epic (English Version)

Gorm's Epic (English Version)
Episode 1 The End of the Exodus A great, huge ship, a real Ark of 130 cubits, was sailing on the flat sea of a blue and sunny afternoon.
-…I still wonder why you gave such a name to our ship…-
Krom-Nav said, as he steered the wheel. The two brothers always had something to say about each other: Krom-Nav was the eldest, always dutiful and precise in his duties, while Yughy, the youngest, was the more reckless one, always ready to experiment. The first had long brown hair that stopped at his shoulders, light and large eyes, a smooth beard that started under the hooked nose, surrounded the mouth, and ended by covering the chin with a point. The second had shorter hair, hazel, darker eyes, a veil of beard on the chin, both tall, athletic bodied, Krom leaner and Yughy Sturdier, dressed, like the rest of their people on that great ship, in animal furs decorated with the symbols of their people: Five symbols that indicated the elements, Water, Earth, Plants, Air, Fire, which all revered and respected. The two had very different characters: Yughy was impulsive, skilled at manual labor, a hothead who often acted on feeling rather than reason. Krom, on the other hand, was more methodical, more thoughtful, didn't talk much unless necessary, loved to read, and always kept a watchful eye on his people and crew.
  • Come on brother! It's been years since we set sail! You should have figured it out! He means “Earth”!- -And I repeat that "Terra", for a ship that sails on water, seems to me a name that is not at all suitable, Yughy…- -AH! BUT YOU DON'T REALLY UNDERSTAND ANYTHING! It's called "Earth" as a good omen! That is to FIND the EARTH, after this very long journey at sea! It's a metaphor, a synonym of Hope!- -Maybe…for me the name Gheos, it still seems strange to me…- -You'll see that you'll get used to it sooner or later…- -Okay! You get used to taking the helm!-
Krom said, walking away, while Yughy looked at him in amazement.
-HEY BUT YOU DUMPING ME LIKE THIS?- -EXACTLY!-
And laughing, he made his way to the large stern. Their relationship had always been like this, since they were children. Bound by a brotherly love that occasionally cracked, but never broke. Even in the darkest moment, in fact, they were together.
10 years earlier, on a very distant coast, on a misty island, stood the village of Missa, a village known for its constant mist. The Missians were a peaceful people, dedicated to agriculture, livestock and fishing, and worshiped the elements of Nature: The Earth, on which they could build their houses, The Plants, which gave them shelter and nourishment, The Air , which moved their mills and relieved them from the heat, Water, which gave them its fish and quenched their thirst, and Fire, which protected and warmed them in the dark nights. Some of them were called Old Sages: They were those who mediated between the Elements of Nature and the material world, holders of ancient powers with which they were born and which they then handed down to their successors. They could blend in and disappear in the eyes of others, use their magic to perform miracles, could increase their strength and speed dramatically, and could read minds and move objects with their thoughts. The title of "Old Sage" referred to the first Village Chief, an old man who helped his people to settle in that place, facing dangers and vicissitudes using his magic to create bridges, drive away beasts and make the land fertile. Since then, individuals with similar powers, even young ones, have received this nomea, a noble title for those who would have been the guides, defenders, or scholars of ancient primordial arts.
There Krom-Nav and Yughy were born. Since they were children they showed innate abilities: Krom spoke with plants and animals, perfectly understanding their moods and intentions without his mouth producing sound, and he was able to exploit the air currents to run faster or make the windmills move, while Yughy was able to manipulate the fire, deflect water in the fields with only the laying on of hands and carried heavy rocks making them float with the power of his mind. Both were in total control of the elements of Nature, and were the most talented of those with their powers. The other villagers respected them, and somewhat feared their power. Krom tried to use his powers to improve life in the village, and was always thinking of his fellow citizens, but Yughi was a much more restless spirit: He composed works of art, sculpting the surrounding hills, but often caused disasters such as landslides and mountain slides, when they pissed him off, he controlled torches to set the pants of troublemakers on fire, and played with water, causing it to float in the air, but when he got distracted, the water fell back, often ruining previously irrigated fields. All pranks that Krom-Nav then had to solve, and the bickering between the two brothers was all too frequent. After a few years, the two grew up, and Krom-Nav was elected full-fledged Sage and head of the village of Missa, while Yughy, also elected Sage, became his trusted second. But not even the time to celebrate, that the tragedy struck the village. A neighboring village, made up of a tribe of hunters and vandals, wanted to take possession of the powers of the Sages of Missa. Thus a war broke out which nearly wiped out the Missians, as the enemies burned houses and destroyed crops. In a last desperate attempt, Krom-Nav defended the survivors of his people, together with other Old Sages and the best Missian warriors, while Yughy shaped with his Psychic power, the metal extracted from the earth, and the wood of the last unburnt forests, a large and stately ship where all the Missians boarded. The few left to defend them sacrificed themselves with honor as Krom-Nav mounted Gheos, and set sail, concentrating his powers and controlling the wind to swell the ship's sails. That terrible night, fortunately, most of the Missians survived, including Yughy, Krom-Nav, and his still infant son, little Lehander.
Lehander was now 10 years old, born with one yellow and one black eye, his hair shimmered in the light and turned dull in the shade, he was an enterprising and playful child, also endowed with powers, like his father. While his uncle steered, and Krom, his father, made sure all was well on the ship, Lehander slept peacefully in the hold, where everyone's dormitories resided. As the ship cradled him in the waves, his dreams came alive with strange visions: Before him loomed an ominous mountain, tall, with spiers that seemed to form a thorny crown of pointed rocks, and the front wall carved as if it were an evil visage. From the "mouth" of the mountain, incandescent lava and magma came out, a real river of death, and from it arose monstrous creatures with red and yellow skin. Then the dream became absurd, moved, strange, many different images of strange creatures fighting against fire demons, until everything suddenly stopped. Lehander saw the Volcano, again, but this time from above, and with it a whole island, huge, with blue seas, green forests, steep mountain ranges and all sorts of natural wonders. Then in front of him, a ball of light. When he tried to touch her, he woke up. It was now full night and beside him was his father.
-DAD…DAD WAKE UP!- Krom-Nav opened his eyes lazily, seeing his son shaken.
-Hey…did you have that nightmare again?- -Yes! But this time it was longer! There was the Volcano, the demons, and then other creatures appeared, and they all lived on this huge and beautiful island in the middle of the sea!-
Krom, listened curious, but disturbed. His son not only had both his and his brother's abilities, but he had developed unusual powers: He often saw how the child, in totally random moments, was able to move his own and the shadows of objects hit by the sun, as if they were solid, and he was able to mold them into any shape. In the same way he was able to "take" the rays of the sun or the moon that shone through the cracks in the wood of the ship to illuminate a totally dark place. He also had the unnerving ability to make small predictions: Krom could not get out of his mind how, one day, Lehander said "I'm going to look for a blanket.", and in that instant the climate, which until then had been scorching, suddenly became cloudy and cold, so much so that he had to interrupt the navigation for two days. So those dreams she told him were hard to ignore. They sounded absurd, but what if they were harbingers of something horrific? He couldn't take this lightly, he had learned over the years that chance was nothing more than a way for the mind to justify natural phenomena and destiny. Krom spoke about this a few nights later with his brother Yughy, after Lehander had a similar vision again, but he kept telling him not to worry, while they were at the bow looking at the sea, that probably the child's immature powers made harmless pranks.
-Krom, you get too worked up…do you remember, when we were kids, I had that dream about a red-hot rock that would hit me on the head?- -Yes, I remember…you were so agitated that when you finally sat down under a tree and a pine cone hit you, you passed out for hours from terror.- -You never remember nice things…anyway if you notice I was a child, and while you already had conversations with blackbirds and lizards, I still had to figure out how to avoid setting fire to the grove behind the house…- -So you want to tell me that Lehander is only very young?- -And also that his powers sometimes go to his head! Then he's always been a kid with a wild imagination, you shouldn't take it too seriously!-
The two continued to converse about it, while the night sky was lit only by moonlight. Krom-Nav continued to be worried about his son's visions, while Yughy continued to reassure him. Krom, however, couldn't get over it, since that wasn't the only thing troubling him.
-Sometimes, when he thinks he's alone, I hear him talking as if he were with someone else...often it almost seems like he's "arguing" with himself.- -Maybe just play, don't you think?- -I know my son, and I distinguish well when he plays and when something is wrong. He's had weird attitudes ever since he started walking on this ship. He has powers unlike ours or any other Sage who have come before us, plus it seems as if he is never fully awake…I think this journey has become too long…our people need a place to call home…and this vessel can no longer be. Far too many people were born and died here, and I think that the continuous wandering in the sea for years is doing as much harm to our body as to our psyche.- -I know brother...I know...-
Yughy said, as he placed a hand on her shoulder.
-…But I'm sure we're almost there. I read the stars yesterday, they seemed to be in the right position, and a few days ago I saw some seagulls in the sky! We are certainly close to the earth!- -You say? What if it was just an islet? A tiny strip of land?- -It will mean that we will replenish the supplies, we could take Lehi and the other children for a walk, and then we will leave again! Where there is a strip of land Often there are others not far away, who knows, maybe after that we won't find a bigger island, or an entire continent!- -…Let's hope so…- -Hey, Hey! Don't make that face. Come on, if I can get that frown out of you, as soon as we stop I'll have Lehander go on a little adventure! As soon as he helps me gather wood, he'll forget about his bad dreams! What are you saying, big brother?- -…Thanks Yughy.-
They continued to converse for a while, Krom-Nav felt more and more reassured by the words of his brother, who had always helped him raise his son: While escaping from Missa, little Lehander's mother, Astreg, was killed by an arrow shot straight to the heart. Krom-Nav had not had time to bury her for years, and kept her remains, mummified so as not to lose them, in a remote room of the ship, waiting for a suitable place for her burial. Since then Krom raised his son alone, with the help of Yughy, who often entertained the child, making him do small jobs on the ship, teaching him some magical techniques, and playing the funny uncle. The two spent a lot of time together, often not even Krom knew where Lehander was, only to later find him with his uncle.
As the two brothers continued to talk, a yell from the watchtower made them whirl around.
-FOG BANK COMING SOON!-
The two brothers ran to the helm, which was being steered by one of their best men, Hagar.
-What happen?- -We are entering a bank of fog, Krom. Looks pretty thick,- -Fog? But how?-
The ship then plunged into fog. All the Missians exited their cabins and made their way to the deck. Lehander reached his father and hugged him tightly, while Krom kept his arm around him. The fog was thick, white, so much so that everyone could feel the steam touching them like a caress, and the salty smell of the sea almost seemed like a sweet aroma. This penetrating fog reminded everyone of the fog of Missa, and caused a sense of nostalgia, serenity, peace in the souls of each of them. Either because of Hagar's caution, or because of the pearly and compact vapor, the mist looked like an infinite Cloud in which the ship was almost swimming. Abruptly, Hagar stopped. Something in the sea was moving. A rumbling was rising from the depths of the sea, and it seemed to get closer and closer. Everyone felt it, and terrified they stood silent, hugging their loved ones. Krom, he looked around, perceived a great, immense force around them. Yughy instead heard only an indecipherable muttering. Then, suddenly, a gasp. The ship began to rock violently, everyone held on to something, the two brothers barely resisted standing. The ship rocked for minutes, until something popped up from the sea: An enormous head, twice the size of the ship, emerged from the water. A gargantuan creature with a reptilian head, mottled and scaly skin, tinged with a brilliant abyssal blue, opened its mouth, emitting a high-pitched dissonant song and displaying thousands of sharp teeth, arranged in a comb, as large as the trees of the ship. His mouth shut, his oil-black eye opened, and he just stood there staring at the ship. Krom-Nav approached the rail, where the eye of the creature scrutinized the ship, while Yughy and Lehander watched the scene amazed together with the rest of the people.
-KROM! COME BACK HERE!- -Keep calm…- -KROM! FOR THE SAKE OF THE ELEMENTS, IT'S NOT A DOLPHIN!- -I said stay calm, Yughy…I feel it…it's powerful…but it's not hostile…- -…HOW SHOULD YOU SAY THAT YOU FEEL IT?-
Krom got as close as possible. He saw the giant pupil turn towards him, narrow and then widen. He feared neither the ship nor Krom. And he didn't seem to want to attack her. Lehander also approached, as if attracted by that magnificent creature. Krom held his son close, and in the process, tried to use his powers to communicate with us. The only thing he heard were strange words in an incomprehensible language.
-Dad...maybe I can understand you...-
Krom wondered for a moment, how could his son already know a language that he didn't know either? But he could not let fear dominate him.
-...Lehe...be careful...and tell us what the beast wants.-
Lehander approached, under the astonished eyes of all. The mighty animal began to make strange noises, but it seemed that somehow, its roaring gurgle and its high-pitched song, resembled words, sentences, a finished speech he was having with the child. Abruptly, he changed, and Lehander turned to face his people.
-…He said his name was Murena. It lives a little further on, in its great lair at the bottom of the sea, near a southward current, and a ditch beyond it. She says that she is one of the guardians of this sea, and that she has a friend with many tentacles, with whom she sometimes fights over the place where she likes to eat. Near her lair is also a large Island. If we ask them please we can live there! There's plenty of room, lots of wood, enough food and water for everyone! We just have to not fish too much and not catch too much. She says she has many other friends on earth, and she doesn't want some of them to get angry.-
The great Moray eel slowly closed and reopened her eye towards the boat, as if it were a sign of assent. Yughy approached his brother.
-…it almost seems that…- -Yes…he understood that Lehander is a “puppy”…and made him understand it easily…- -So, there really is an island…and it's big enough for all the people.- -He also said that there are Beasts like her, if not bigger, that could kill us.- -KROM! HE SAID WE SHOULD NOT DISTURB THEM AS WE ALWAYS HAVE DONE WHEN WORSHIP THE ELEMENTS! YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND! WE ARE ONE STEP AWAY FROM OUR NEW HOME! IF IT'S AS BIG AS IT SAYS WE WOULD NEVER HUNGER! WE WOULD RESIST FOR GENERATIONS AND GENERATIONS! FOR THE FIRST TIME YOUR CHILD WILL TOUCH THE WARM GROUND AND NOT THE COLD WOOD OF THIS SHIP! YOU CAN BURY ASTREG INSTEAD OF ROTTING IT IN THE SEA! IF THIS THING WOULD HAVE WANTED TO EAT YOU IT WOULD ALREADY HAVE DONE IT! LOOK HOW BIG HIS MOUTH IS! THINK WHAT'S UNDER THE SEA! IT'S OUR CHANCE, BROTHER! OUR INVITATION TO A PEACEFUL LIFE FOR US, FOR YOUR PEOPLE! FOR YOUR CHILD!-
Krom was torn: On the one hand there was the risk of a trap by that monster, on the other, his people were tired of travelling, tired of seeing only the sea and having to make do to survive. Krom approached his son.
-Ask her…to show us the way.- -YES!-
Lehander with the most innocent smile he could muster looked at his father and uncle, and turned to the Moray Eel. It remained motionless for an interminable minute, then, its head moved forward, towards the direction of the Gheos ship, its long bluish body began to show itself as it swam towards that direction. It seemed endless, but out of the queue, Krom-Nav realized that his brother was right in his greatness. It was ten times the length of the ship, its serpentine body like a moving mountain range, and the long translucent blue fin that ran along its entire body made it even more imposing to the shocked Missians. The Moray Eel swam ahead of the ship, and began to swim straight ahead to show the way out of the mist. Krom, immediately set to work.
-HAGAR! FULL SPEED! SAILS EXPLAINED! WE NEED TO STAY BEHIND IT! YUGHY! REACH THE LOOKOUT AND CLIMB THE MAIN MAST! ALL ELSE BELOW DECKS!-
And so they did, everyone took their places, the civilians returned, and Krom stood straight in the bow, followed by his son who watched in ecstasy as the gigantic creature guided them towards the unknown. Mist beat against their faces as the ship went at full speed driven by the wind. The creature accelerated more and more as the clouds cleared, they were coming, the salty smell was slowly disappearing. Then, from the top of the watchtower, Yughy screamed together with the other sailor.
-GHEOOOOOOOS! GHEOOOOOOOS! EEEEEARTH!-
Krom still couldn't see it, then the sunlight blinded him, Lehander, and Hagar. As their eyes adjusted, they saw her: A gigantic island loomed before them, a huge layer of land surrounded by cliffs and a sea so blue it looked like fresh water, so clear that you could see all kinds of sea creatures swimming beside the ship, known and unknown. Two huge mountains welcomed them, towering over endless expanses of lush jungles and forests, and surrounded by towering mountain ranges that crowned the entire island. It was their promised land. Their new home
Yughy, he got off, very excited and joined his brother and nephew.
-…Look…WHAT SPLENDOR...- -…Yes…finally…we are home…- -We absolutely have to find a name for her…- -I already have a name for her…- -And what will it be called?- -…it will be our Life from now on…- -Life…you mean..?- -Exactly…GORM…-

2023.06.03 12:26 Ledgem Frustrated with Docker: Am I Crazy for Thinking to go VM Instead?

This is kind of a stupid question, but I'm partly venting, and partly seeking an opinion that Docker is amazing and totally worth it, or an opinion that Docker is a waste of time and just make a virtual machine.
I was excited to discover Docker when I moved to Synology for my NAS needs 1-2 years ago, but no matter what I tried to set up, I could never seem to get it working particularly well. It sat idle and unused, until recently: I tried to install HomeBridge through it, which ultimately kept giving some sort of network errors that I could not resolve, and now I'm trying to utilize Avahi for mDNS queries on my network (specifically as a way to cut down on unresponsive HomeKit devices), but cannot find a way to edit any configuration files or run the necessary commands through it to add entries. I've been trying to read up on how to get things set up in Docker and while I feel that I have learned a lot, much of this is still unintuitive to me and guides don't cover it the issues I'm encountering.
While I am open to the idea that I just haven't come across the right information yet, I can't help but wonder if I'd be up and running no problem with a virtual machine to handle the server functionality, instead. Not that I'm a Linux guru, but I have some familiarity with it and it seems like it would be much more accessible.
The big reasons I like the idea of Docker is less hit to resource utilization and, in theory, greater security (less attack surface compared with running a full system). I know portability is a huge benefit of Docker but I don't necessarily plan to use that aspect much. I used to love micromanaging and administering my systems but now I have a whole family's worth of devices to preside over and I really don't want yet another system to worry about locking down and keeping updated - and so I keep coming back to the idea of Docker.
Thanks for reading my venting... I'm open to thoughts or suggestions. If the consensus is that Docker isn't worth it, then I'll move on. I suppose I'm hoping to hear a bunch of commiseration from people who also struggled with Docker and now feel that they've mastered it, who can say that it's worth it and possibly share some good guides for getting started.

2023.06.03 12:19 irasponsibly Edge Bisect button in the Build UI?

In PB3, there doesn't seem to be a button to turn Edge Bisect on and off anymore.
It's a niche thing I'd rather have Off most of the time, but it seems the only option now is to go into the settings and set a custom keybind for it (There isn't one by default) or toggle it on and off deep into the settings menu?
Anyone know a way to get an Edge Bisect button back into the UI (like in Poly Bridge 2)?

Hey, looking for some friends:)
Hi, I’m going to see Hozier in July in Berlin and am looking for some concert buddies. I’m okay with going alone but I think that would be more fun and joy if we will have a small clique to share our emotions, maybe take some pictures:) If you are going to Berlin concert at Tempodrom, dm me, would be really happy to get to know new people who love his music.
P.s. I speak german fluently as well, wäre sehr frog jemanden kennenzulernen:)

2023.06.03 12:04 PuzzleheadedLaw6571 Drive Safe: Friendly Reminder for locals and snowbirds/tourists returning to/visiting our state

Summer is coming although it might not feel like it weather wise this weekend; traffic and construction are on the rise. There are new traffic patterns in a lot of areas. I live in southern Maine, on the York/Kittery line, but have family in the BangoPortland areas. My spouse and I have many friends throughout Portland and the respective suburbs of that area so we visit frequently.
I’ve lived in southern Maine for 7 years now. 7 summers of Route 1 back ups. Crowded parking lots. But this summer traffic accidents and dangerous driving—from what I’ve seen, have been much more prevalent. In the past couple of weeks I’ve witnessed:
-Someone almost get taken out at a crosswalk in the Kittery outlets. (Right by KTP, I had just grabbed Starbucks). Driver was clearly distracted.
-Head on collision on Route 236 near Eliot where an older gentleman had to be pulled out of his car and administered CPR (I was 6 cars back from the actual accident and had just picked my daughter up from daycare).
-A construction truck who was very much in a hurry just blow through a stop sign almost causing an accident on the back roads in Cape Neddick near Ogunquit.
-I got stuck in the Route 1 traffic near the York/Kittery line after a fatal car accident had occurred 15 minutes earlier involving a woman with a medical emergency.
-A younger kid backing out of a parking spot and hitting another car at the Nubble Light House. (The kid felt horrible and it clearly scared him. The New Yorker was pissed, no one was hurt thankfully).
Either I’ve been at the wrong place at the wrong time a lot this year, or something is up. I commute to Massachusetts for work three times a week, so I see accidents everyday, just not usually in Maine, and not so many involving medical emergencies.
Buckle up and stay safe!!

2023.06.03 11:10 No-Gap-3306 A very oblivious lifted truck nearly hurt my friends and totally my car

A very oblivious lifted truck nearly hurt my friends and totally my car
Pictures attached in order are truck that almost hit me (exact make/model/modifications), my car (no i did not leave those tire marks) and a truck the same size as my car (for scale)
It happened a few weeks ago but still somewhat haunts me, so I thought I'd post here. I was driving to my HS's graduation with some of my friends in the car on a 4 lane stroad (fuck stroads), and I get stuck in 30ish MPH, very heavy traffic. Looking to change lanes so I can make my exit, I slowly indicate and move to change lanes into the perfectly clear middle lane, when a SEMA Style F-250 hard accelerates to change lanes into me. At this point I'm nearly fully in my lane when the F-250 is about to slam into me, and given how loud the traffic was, I knew honking wouldn't deter him. I ended up just flooring the gas to get back into my lane and get away from him, which leads me to miss my exit and be late. In addition to all this, my passenger noted that throughout the entire interaction, the sunglasses wearing (it was cloudy) redneck driving the truck didn't see me at all.
Initially, my family blamed me for buying such a small car (2018 Toyota C-HR, picture shown is my exact car), but after some basic research I found my car is roughly the same length, width and height as a 1996 Toyota Truck with a 3 inch lift kit. So when you think about it, not really that small. Yet even though all of these things, a F-250 still nearly hit me ON THE PASSENGER SIDE where I had two people I care about far more than myself on, then just continued driving. And didn't even see my car throughout any of it. This could've seriously injured both my passengers and totaled my shit, but since in my state changing lanes without indicating is technically legal, he didn't commit any real crimes. If anything, I could be the one getting prosecuted for flooring it to move into the other lane away from him. This has led my friends to feel less safe riding in my car, and my fear of big trucks to grow even more. My vintage car owning best friend is used to this as well, as his 1983 Volkswagen is hit almost daily. I'm a person who loves working on my car, going to classic car shows and driving the backroads, but even I despise the modern culture and civil engineering of "own a car or perish," and the existence of the Chevy Suburban entirely. Don't even get me started on why bigger cars are less safe for even the passengers of said big cars. Its 4am and I'm angry at alot of things right now.
TLDR: My Toyota C-HR was nearly reduced to atoms by a lifted truck and now my passengers don't feel safe ☹️

2023.06.03 11:08 Due_Significance_883 Ideas for stage gimmicks in Splatoon 3

We all know that the stages in splatoon 3 are bland and are sorely missing some kind of gimmick to make them interesting (well hopefully most of you do). So I came up with some for the stages that are in splatoon 3. Keep in mind I'm not doing any for Museum and Flounder since they both have good gimmicks and are actual stages (I'm looking at you Wahoo World). With that out of the way let's hop right into it.
Eeltail alley: Cars. More specifically the side of eeltail should be opened up (around mid) allowing cars to rush through slowly. They can be used to platform through or you can go straight through the road to the other side. Is it risky? Yes. But the sides of the cars and the road can be inked to allow easy travel. Also inklines should be added fro an alternate route if you don't fancy cars.
Undertow Spillway: Rushing water with platforms. When I think of a spillway, I assume there is some kind of water going, bringing stuff along the current. This would be similar to the final section of the first part of After Alterna (the platforms that rotate over and over). Ink would not be removed from the platforms if they go in the water and the platfroms used will be the same throughout the match.
Scorch Gorge: Okay this one was harder to come up with but I've think I got it. A gorge (Yes how original considering it's in the name)! But a gorge is basically a large pit lengthwise and with squid surge it could be interseting. Nothe that you don't start in the gorge but on the side.
Hammerhead bridge: Yes this did have a gimmick then removed because of the bridge being completed but simply jyst make the original stage underneath the bridge. I mean battles occur under the bridge so why not just make the original layout of the stage underneath )with the grates). And yes I AM ignoring how te bridge being complete.
Makomart; Okay I have no concrete ideas but I'll just throw them out and see what youy think. Boxes! Yes projectile boxes that exist can now be moved around the map and be used as portable cover albeit only moved in small area and can be moved by both teams. Another is something to do with the actual market experience with a bunch of aisles.
Inkblot Art Academy: Another hard one. This one is even more vague with the only two being free inkrefills being randomly scattered every few seconds or random statues that randomly move. Or heck even revamp the stage every few minutes.
Brinewater Springs: Another hard one! Are you serious you're thinking (maybe). Yes! Yes I am. This one I've never thought hard of but it would be really interesting if there was hot springs (or ink springs) that gave tacticooler buffs or something similar.
Wahoo World: Yes it does have a gimmick but it's a bad one. So why not add another those being grind rails or amusement park rides into the actual stage, utilising roller coasters for transportation or a merry go round for cover or sharking.
Manta Maria: A simple idea, just the rocking of the boat itself. going up an incline reduces speed in both form while going down the incline increase the speed in both forms. Also you'll slide if you're standing still. This would change up the terrain as well as force you to adjust you're aim depending on the amount and viscousness of the rocking.
Mincemeat Metalworks: *Breathes in* WHER ARE THE GIMMICKS RELATED TO METAL I MEAN COME ON!! Okay in all seriousness there should at least be some kind of magnet with vehicles or scrap lying around that can be attracted causing as much carnage as possible.
Um'ami Ruins: Booby traps in te temple. Oh and you're fighting in the temple or ruins this time not outside of it. The traps can range from disruptors (Yes the slow down sticks of splatoon), to a random boulder or even ink tipped darts that could probably kill you instantly. Probably.
Barnacle and Dime: This is a fu one. Firstly the entire area near the normal battle site is accessible by launch pads. Yes launch pads from the single player which let you jump in and out of the mall. Every floor is accessible and escaltors can be used to go up floors or the more traditional idea of going up walls. There would also be ziplines and grind rails to get around the area easily and the outside parts of the stage could be rainmaker free zone but I'm not entirely sur on it yet.
Humpback Pump Track: You get to use bikes. Is this completely unbalanced and difficult to use? yeah. Would it be interesting none the less? Absolutely! Just simply pick up a bike at spawn and go!
Hagglefish Market: Bouncy tents and/or pads. Seriously, why is there no bounce pads or the like used in a regular stage? There isn't much of for this one but bouncing around would be nice on the tents and could lead to some interesting trickshots and jukes.
And that is all the stages that don't have a gimmick or a good one currently (in my opinion). Let me know what you think as it took a while to come up with all these ideas and I'd like to here your thoughts on them.
PS I didn't know which flair to use and this is the only one that seemed to fit.
