2021.10.26 17:09 TheNoose_3140 I just hope it's worth it.
To be fair, I do understand your care for him. Unique as he is, I just don't understand why you went to him, why you left me for him. In this the bitterness takes hold, so I will do my part to avoid the bitter stinging words. You did make a choice, and that choice means I lose you.
I have lost you, is that not so.
To be clear, I never asked you to choose, to be clear he did. He is the one that put you in this position, not me. I will never understand why I was easy to move aside. I will never understand whether you lied to him, me, us both or all of us including yourself. I accept that I can never really know these answers, not while you choose to fight his battles for him. Not while you choose to sacrifice everything you suggest to care for while those battles rage on and on endlessly.
I hope he makes you happy. I hope he makes you happier than I ever could have dreamt of making you. I hope, but I won't hold my breath.
Control isn't happiness, human conditioning isn't peace. Brain washing doesn't remove the stains of a pure loving intention. Perhaps you will see this in time, perhaps you'll come to understand the details of it, and feel that rush of conflict within you. Perhaps at that time a question will arise, placid at first, building in relevance each time it is formed. "What can I do, he won't make it without me?"
Grin and bare it, is the best advice I can offer. Work for a better tomorrow maybe worth a shot. It didn't have to be this way, but alas it is. I just hope it's worth it.

2021.10.26 17:09 moxie10 Is taking a break pointless?
I (20F) have been dating my boyfriend (22M) for 2 years now. Ever since COVID happened we committed to a LDR, which has lasted for a year. Whenever he comes to visit me he always leaves saying the same things: I regret coming, I shouldn’t have come, you know we won’t see each other for a while. For the last two weeks he completely stopped texting me. Whenever I asked him if he was okay he’d reply, “no but it’s fine. You should go enjoy the day” as his dismal. I kept trying to ask him what was wrong but he didn’t want to share. He eventually told me that he didn’t want to talk to me.
Long story short we decided taking a break for 3-4 months would be good, but I remember him saying at the beginning of our relationship that he thinks breaks are pointless. I said I would wait for him and not do anything with other people during our break, but am I just wasting my time waiting for him to open up to me? It’s already been 2 years and we’ve been through so much.

2021.10.26 17:09 BookMarkedReviews1 Book Review- Far From the Light of Heaven by Tade Thompson
Please check out my blog for more reviews at www.bookmarkedreviews.com
4 1/2 stars
I have an iffy relationship with science fiction. I find that most of the sci fi that I have read is meh. It’s either very technical (boring) or all military action (boring) or something weird like dolphins flying spaceships (could be good but usually not). I especially need good characterization in the sci fi that I read or I find that I tune out very quickly. Consequently, I am very picky about what science fiction I read. Which brings us to Tade Thompson’s Far From the Light of Heaven. This is what great science fiction looks like!
A murder mystery set within a science fiction framework, this novel is able to blend both genres into a pleasing whole. On a 10 year journey to deliver passengers to the outer colonies, First Mate Michelle Campion is woken early, from something like cyrosleep, aboard the AI piloted spaceship Ragtime. Once awake she determines that something is drastically wrong. 31 of the passengers have gone missing. The ship’s AI is not responding correctly. Campion send a distress signal which is answered by Rasheed Fin and his robotic partner, Salvo, investigators from the planet Bloodroot. But another complication has occurred: it seems the ship is now trying to kill them. The question becomes, can Campion, Fin and Salvo survive long enough solve the mystery of the missing passengers?
First, I have to say this is not just a mystery set on a spaceship. There is a solid sci fi foundation for the novel. In fact, the technology and the other sci fi elements (aliens, space travel, corporations in space, space politics, etc.) are all represented in the novel but done in a way that they add to the story instead of just being an info dump that happens and then is ignored. The universe that Thompson created is so inventive and realistic that you could believe that the future might look like this. It’s the attention to detail, such as the fact that natural circadian rhythms are out of sync while in space, that make the universe feel real.
The characters of Campion, Fin and Salvo, among others, are so genuine. Each one comes off as a complex person with their own hopes and fears. Thompson is not afraid to make his characters unlikeable. Although no one is really unlikeable, but can be prickly, sensitive and combative at times. Just like real people. There is nothing in the characterization that will drop you out of the story. I particularly enjoyed the interaction of Fin and Campion. They are allies by circumstance and yet, they both continue to mistrust the motives of the other. I can completely see that happening in this type of situation.
As for the mystery itself, I loved it. It was logical, surprising and so inventive. All too often trying to write any sort of mystery within sci fi causes either the mystery or the sci fiction to be lacking. Not here. I honestly had no clue who the murderer was until the end. And there was no surprise twist or deus ex machina to ruin the ending. The clues are there from the very beginning. This was a suspenseful, gripping mystery. I ende3d reading this is one sitting, ignoring everything else for the day.
Tade Thompson is an incredibly talented author. I am going to be checking out his other books as well as put him on my “authors to follow” list. This book is that good.
Far From the Light of Heaven is a book that no science fiction fan wants to miss!

Im going to my first concert (cannibal corpse of course) in like 5 months and I’m buying the tickets from ticket master right now. So there are two options: general admission (standard admission), and general admission (verified resale ticket)
The second one is double the price. Why? It’s a concert with no seats it’s not like “seats” are better… any Idea why? And if it’s worth it?

2021.10.26 17:09 Hautamaki On Taiwanese independence
Just to clarify what's at stake and explain why each side has taken the actions they have taken so far, the threat that China holds over Taiwan is more economic than military.
Yes China's outward military threats get all the headlines and suck up most of the oxygen in online debates, but China is not actually militarily capable of seriously threatening Taiwan without US and Japanese permission, and is not projected to be militarily capable of seriously threatening Taiwan (outside of nukes) without US and Japanese permission for at least another generation, if ever.
Which is to say that if Taiwan formally declared independence and applied for nationhood status at the UN tomorrow, or yesterday, or any time in the last 70 or next 20+ years, China would never have had a serious military response. The likelihood of a token military response, carefully calculated to save a bit of face without escalating things to the CCP's destruction, was and always will be there, but China has never had any prospects of successfully conquering Taiwan like they did Tibet and Hong Kong and most likely will not for the foreseeable future. This announcement has not actually changed anything on that score.
So why has Taiwan not declared independence? Why do they hesitate even after internal polling shows most Taiwanese less inclined than ever to ever want to rejoin mainland China and China has no serious military response if they did? It's partly because of the risk of mutual destruction if the CCP miscalculates its military response and things escalate out of control, but it's actually mainly because of the economics.
Right now, Taiwan enjoys the equivalent of having its cake and eating it too. It enjoys defacto political independence from the CCP, as it always has, but it still enjoys tremendous economic benefits from trading with China. China is both its largest export market and its largest source of cheap labor for producing many of the products that it sells anywhere else. Taiwan enjoys its status as a mostly developed, highly successful economy because of its dealings with China, and if that economic cooperation were suddenly taken away, Taiwan's economy would be devastated, likely for a generation. As Taiwan is actually a democracy, the party in power would wear that economic devastation and most likely be obliterated at the polls unless it could make an overwhelmingly good case that it was 100% all China's fault and there's nothing anyone in Taiwan could have done to prevent it. Therefore, while Taiwan as a whole is steadily inching towards independence, a generation at a time, the party in power is heavily disincentivized to speed that up or do anything dramatic at all that would annoy China to the point of economic decoupling.
China, for its part, of course also enjoys economic benefits from its trade with Taiwan and would suffer somewhat from a decoupling. Unlike Taiwan though, China is economically much poorer per capita and the CCP is much less democratic. Therefore they are much more likely to be willing to suffer economic consequences, as they have that much less, per capita, to lose, and because of their authoritarian nature they'd have a better shot at successfully internally portraying Taiwan (and the US and Japan and other foreigners) as wholly to blame for whatever economic backlash they'd suffer. What is China's actual hope here? Well I believe there are two hopes.
Plan A is that China's continual political and military pressure on Taiwan eventually creates a sense of resignation in Taiwan and the Taiwanese people that re-unification is inevitable and the only thing they can hope to control is the terms under which they reunify, so they might as well come to the table and start the process of peaceful negotiation now. At the same time, they hope to create the same sense of inevitability or just plain disinterest in America and Japan, so that America and Japan give up on the idea of defending Taiwan. They want the American and Japanese people to believe that the Chinese economy and military is large, advanced, and determined enough to make the American and Japanese militaries and economies suffer tremendously and pointlessly if they try to defend Taiwan. If they can successfully engender that viewpoint and have it become the majority viewpoint, they believe they can get Taiwan to just peacefully re-unify more or less the way Hong Kong did.
If that fails, Plan B is that they can somehow find another way to appease their internal nationalists and get their own crackpots and wannabe conquistadors to give up on Taiwanese reunification without blaming the CCP for weakness, incompetence, and corruption. Right now the CCP has not done much of anything to advance plan B because the ascendant Xi faction are clearly hoping that Plan A will eventually work. However if the Xi faction falls, perhaps in part because Plan A is obviously not working, whatever faction takes over is likely to go for Plan B because that's really the only other option that even hypothetically could exist.
Meanwhile, what could actually make Taiwan pull the trigger on independence? Well one thing would be China pre-emptively using economic pressure and threats to the point that their economy would be devastated anyway and the party in power could successfully blame it all on China. China has notably not done that, because it understands the calculus here perfectly well as well. Another thing would be Taiwan finding sufficient economic alternatives to China that its economy could weather a sudden decoupling. The US signalling UN support might be a clue that the US is looking to increase support for Taiwan to somehow manage that economic decoupling as well. TSMC building a fab in Arizona is one tangible sign in that direction, for example. Foxxconn's apparent aborted attempt to make a factory in the US was another, though its ultimate failure doesn't exactly portend well.
I think the most reasonable prediction is that the status quo holds for now. The status quo benefits all sides. The side most likely to upset the status quo is the CCP, but that's mainly because they face so many existential threats simultaneously that they may feel obliged to roll the dice on a longshot that the US and Japan might suddenly decide to throw Taiwan to the wolves in spite of all the geopolitical strategic reasons they have to uphold the status quo. So, to try to prevent the CCP from rolling the dice, at least on Taiwan, the US and Japan are reiterating their continued intention to militarily defend Taiwan from conquest if necessary. That's what this announcement is all about.

Went to EDC this weekend and saw that T-Mobile had 5G at the venue. However while I was there even though my phone said I had 5G and some bars. I could not get any data at all or texts. Even though there was 150k people I thought 5G was made to accommodate big venues and a ton of people.

I’m wondering how Gutrippaz get on in units of 20? I have the 10 from my Dominion box, and I’ve picked up another box of 10 leaving me with 20.
I’m considering running them as a unit of 20 (mostly so I don’t have to mess around sourcing another banner for the Dominion models).
Does anyone have any experience of them in units of 20?
