2023.03.20 22:18 Insanedarkness771 Lawyer demands my personal details for a copyright claim to be considered.

A few days ago, one of my YouTube videos were threatened to be copyright striked as well as many similar ones featuring a specific film. I am unfamiliar with US law however I believe that my video would have fallen vaguely into fair use as my video contained footage from the film edited into a horror trailer. My intention for the video was to educate people in film schools on how editing subverts the genre of the film and the footage of the film was heavily manipulated (added VFX, different music, no spoilers, different color grading). Please correct me if I am wrong on this.
When looking at my claim, the company who claimed it was not the production company/distributor but instead what seemed to be one of the producer's private companies. There is no information on the producer and the company other than an inactive IMDb page therefore I was unsure whether it was the actual producer as many people share the same name as her.
I contacted the email, on the claim which on searching the name, was the name of an LA copyright attorney however the email was very basic and didn't have it's now email domain therefore again, I was unsure if it was that person themselves. I emailed them saying that I did not want to contest the claim however to understand where in his point of view I went wrong and what I could do to not anger the producer. I also told them that I have spoken to the other people who had their videos taken down from the same client and to tell me how they could avoid futher strikes.
He responded by telling me that I have to provide my Name, Address, and Phone number to consider the request. This took me aback as I am unsure why he would request that unless he is intenting to serve me a court order, which again, I told him I dont want to fight his claim but to recieve more information on the claim itself. His reasoning was that he found it ironic that he couldnt find my name on my google profile and therefore he won't provide verification unless I do so myself however, the claim was made on my personal account where I do not provide sensitive information for my safety and security.
What should I do? Should I refuse? Is there any way I can know he is who he says he is?

2023.03.20 22:17 Stacksmchenry Credit card debt phone scam

Forgive me if this has been posted, I cannot seem to find how this scam works and I'm very curious what was going on.
I received a phone call claiming my credit card debt was going to be wiped clean because of some Experian program. They asked how much debt I had across all of my credit cards. I knew this was a scam, so I made up a fake amount. He asked me to verify the expiration date on my Discover card, I used a fake card generator site and gave him that random output. He then asked for me to confirm the rest of the card number. I only gave him the last 4 of the random generated number, gave him a fake zip code (real zip, but never lived there) and fake last four digits of an SSN when he asked me for them. He put me on hold and returned telling me the SSN was invalid. I repeated the same fake 4 numbers, which prompted him to curse at me for a minute and then hang up on me. The man had an Indian sounding accent if that matters in any way. His English was pretty good.
What was the scam he was running? How did he know I was lying based on the info I gave? Where can I read more about this scam? Thank you ahead of time for any input!

2023.03.20 22:17 a2tvande1ay I'm (32M) confused at what to do at this point with my gf (31F)

We have been dating just over 1 year and living together for 2 months now.
I tried to bring some issues to her and sometimes I think things will change for the better but I'm having serious doubts. She is very stubborn and often gets over emotional for irrational things. We have a good relationship, my family likes her a lot. Here are my key grievances and I need to know if I'm being rational and how to handle the situation.
The other week she got upset, like in tears because she felt overwhelmed because she had to sort the recycling. I told her not to worry about it and I'll do it because it's not a big deal. Then she went on about societies expectations because she is a woman she feels she has to cook and clean while having a full time job. I told her, I don't have these expectations, and I have never once pressured to do any of these things. I work from home and clean when I can, and 99% I make my own food and eat because she is vegan and I am not. She was also upset that I never make her dinner even though I make my own food because I don't like eating vegan. I am also working a very demanding job even though it's at home she has different expectations for what I do.
This felt like a weird over reaction and often times she does this and claims she feels overwhelmed (usually for different reasons) I honestly think it might be a chemical/nutrient imbalance because of her veganism. However she won't listen to me about that either. She is hard headed in what she believes and won't make any changes in that regards so I let her make her own choices even though it seems like she is suffering. (Constantly tired and moody, needs a lot of affection)
She also has a cat she refuses to get sprayed because her last cat "changed" when it was done. I feel for this poor cat. Her hormones are obviously fluctuating all the time, and can't have sex. I know there's benefits to being sprayed like less chance of canceinfection but she won't listen or change her mind on this subject either.
Another issue is she takes up so much room in bed and it feels like she doesn't respect me enough to give me a lot of room to sleep. She always has the heat cranked to the point where I have to turn off because it's uncomfortably hot. (Again, I think this might be a vegan or medical thing)
She also thinks crystals have magical properties and spends hundreds of dollars on them every month. It's her money, I don't care. But she's in debt and this seems foolish and a waste.
I'm really frustrated, here are a few examples and I'm not sure what to do. I'm trying not to give up too early, I don't want to give an ultimatum but I'm seriously lost at what to do.
I like to think I'm good at communicating and I very openly bring these things up but it never goes over well.
What do I do?

2023.03.20 22:17 SpencerNewton [California] Laid off, had to apply by fax, haven't heard anything from EDD yet

So I recently moved to CA, and because I had out of state wages in the last 18 months before I was just laid off from my CA job, it said I had to file by either fax or phone, with the website saying fax is the quickest.
I was laid off on a Thursday (2/16), I faxed over my application that Saturday (2/18), and I haven't heard anything or gotten anything in the mail since, I have tried to login online and it cannot log me in. I have not received an EDD number in the mail, but I did a workaround I found to find my EDD number, tried using that to log in to manage my claim, and it says "Your information does not match the records in our system" etc, and won't let me log in.
I called about a week or so ago, and after being on hold and transferred for more than an hour and a half, I talked to someone who seemed relatively knowledgeable and told me that when you fax it over, it goes into a cloud where applications are processed from. Unfortunately the call dropped shortly after and I couldn't get an answer onto whether he could see if my application was waiting there for someone to approve it or otherwise, although from the sound of his voice it sounded like he wouldn't be able to confirm that my application was ever actually received or not, and I didn't have the patience to try calling again and waiting for another hour+ to try and get through.
Basically I'm not sure what to do because if it's truly back logged, then I just have to wait, but I have no idea if they even got my application and if its going through the process, and if no one can tell me whether it's there or not, then I have no idea what the next step forward is. Has anyone waited this long to hear back from anything? I haven't received anything in the mail confirming literally anything, I can't certify online or over the phone because I don't have any sort of login info to manage the claim, and I don't want to have to reapply and lose out on the last months worth of back pay because they never got it, so just looking for general information on what to do and if any of this is normal.
Thanks for your help in advance!

2023.03.20 22:16 jargm 3 One shot ideas

  1. The weird museum
This one is more of a classic, but I really like the idea of having a one shot that focuses on a museum. But the museum I have in mind is not a simple one. It’s rather a special, crazy version of a museum. This might be a weird topic as its focus, like a candy museum, a museum for diseases, or weird creatures. Or it might be something that isn’t a museum at first glance. Maybe the players are ants inside a museum, but for them it is the world they know, and the humans that watch them through the world barrier are their gods.

  1. The archaeological excavation
An archaeological site, where something extraordinary is discovered. The newspapers report about an one in a century find, but they aren’t allowed to reveal what it is. The players are sent to site, maybe they play as news reporters, as archaeologist, or as a local authority. When they arrive at the site, it is deserted with no traces of any human still being there. All workers are missing, and the party has to reveal a dark secret…

  1. The World’s fair
Chicago, 1983. In the summer heat 27 million visitors attend the tenth world exhibition, called “The World’s fair”. They witness a shocking event that disrupts the festivities: The 12 meter high Chocolate Temple, built by german entrepreneur Ludwig Stollwerck, melts in the unexpected hot sun, and reveals a dead body under the chocolate sculpture of “germania” that is placed in the center of the temple.
The players then need to solve the murder. They could be some kind of investigators, which makes this idea, along with the era, especially fitting for a Call of Cthulhu campaign.

Any Ideas? Maybe a certain twist?
Hopefully you can use one of them for your next one shot! I'd love to hear how they went!
I post stuff like this and more regularly on my blog.

2023.03.20 22:14 Illustrious-Aide-582 I just told my employer about wanting to travel and work

I work remote for a biotech company. I unfortunately do not have a laptop because I deal with private health information and need to be hardwired into my internet source for security purposes. So it's not feasible to live somewhere for a short amount of time because I have to lug two monitors and a tower with me.
I wanted to go live in a couple of different cities to try and figure out where I'd like to move to. I was thinking of living there for a couple of months each. My VPN shares my location with the IT team so I thought its best to ask my employer to make sure this is okay.
They said they could make an exception where I could live somewhere for 2 months but not any longer or anywhere else due to tax reasons. Has anyone else dealt with this? Is there anyway around it? I'm using my parents address as my permanent address and not claiming residency elsewhere. I regret even telling them but i feel like the VPN would have raised questions. Thanks for any advice.

2023.03.20 22:11 TYM_Purg3 my brother Is ruining our family.

Some context Me and my family immigrated from Africa, and we were really struggling for the first few years, but now we have found stability in our current community. My parents are divorced and me amd my siblings live with our mom. Now my brother really wasn't the type of person he is now a few years ago. He used to be an alr person although it seems to me he held some type of grudge against me from we were younger, I don't know why but he did try to insult and mock me in front of my mom since I was around 7ish. It's whatever, to be completely honest, it's not even 10% as bad as what he treats me like right now.
Recently, it feels like he just seems to do whatever he wants and says whatever he thinks will get him what he wants. He moved out when my mom offered for him to stay for free with food and everything he'd need, but instead, he decided to leave. Now, for the first 3 months, everything was alright. While it seems he was not trying to talk to us, he was still thriving. But now, for the last 5 months, he has not been paying his rent and does not buy food. He just pushes those bills on my mother to pay for him. My mom is working 2 jobs where she takes most of the shifts just to be able to cover all of our finances. She now has the burden of paying for our home and my brothers apartment, his food, and its utilities. The money he makes from his job just disappears and he doesn't have money at the end of every month.
Another issue we have is that my brother, although being an adult, is very immature. He does whatever he can to get what he wants. This includes lying, emotional manipulation, hemorrhaging our finances, and then gaslighting my mom. It's like he can never stop. He'll take an interest in getting something, use one of the classic methods of manipulation to get it, then forget to even pay thr damn thing off. My mom wanted to be nice and get my brother a new car just because he was driving a shitty one. She wanted to get him this nice 21k Volkswagen that was new and had low mileage. But he didn't want that. He wanted a 30k Mercedes with high mileage. He has such a bad credit score that my mom had to cosign the car. He made a promise to her that if he got the car, he'd come back to live with us. My mom, being someone who doesn't believe in forming contracts, puts her trust in him. Guess what he didn't do. He hasn't even gotten off his ass to get the car some insurance.
My brother also has an addiction to eating junk food and told my mom that he got diagnosed with diabetes. He just turned 20. I have offered to train him to help him live his best life. He still hasn't even responded to me. I'm doing the best I can here, I'm a 16 year old who is trying my best to give advice to my mom that she should just cut him off. She doesn't want to listen to me. She believes he will change. My family has a goal of buying our own house in a year, and I've been telling my mom that she should cut him off cause he is hemorrhaging money from our savings.
The car he decided to get was too expensive for him, he might have to default on the car. This will ruin my mom's credit score. We are stuck between a rock and a hard place to put it kindly.
He also vapes, he's tried to get me into it. I don't vape tho. Another issue with his lifestyle. There is just so much stuff he has done that I keep remembering each and everything and it's hard you know.
Just wanted to get this off my chest. It'd been really stressful for me recently.

2023.03.20 22:11 Dull_Significance687 In your opinion, which couples (from movies, television series and books) have a relationship as complex and hot as Nicholas Brody and Carrie Mathison? And explain why!

In your opinion, which couples (from movies, television series and books) have a relationship as complex and hot as Nicholas Brody and Carrie Mathison? And explain why!
I miss it so much! One of the best shows of all time! Some excellent storytelling!! Loved all the characters and actors!!
"Her father and I... We had an extraordinarily intense relationship." - Season 6

Mathison and Nicholas in S1E7

Why I was impressed: An obsessed woman with serious psychological problems and who most of the time is right. A man who has been tortured, who doesn't know how to live normally, someone full of doubts and suspicions. An agent who engages with her target. A man we don't know whose side he's on. A paranoid woman. A married man (with Jessica), father of a family (of Dana), but who finds no place in his home (USA). Both adversaries, both lovers. It's so wrong and hard to believe. And done in a way that had no way of conquering me. A game where both want and can end the other. Ahh, no way, I was fascinated with Carrie and Brody.
Some characters like Nicholas Brody and Carrie Mathison really give their all for a feeling called love.

The best TV series couples:
  • Kevin Garvey & Nora Durst (The Leftovers)
  • Ian Gallagher & Mickey (Shameless)
  • Fitz & Simmons (Marvel's Agents of SHIELD)
  • Claire & Frank Underwood (House of Cards)
  • Luke & June (The Handmaid's Tale)
  • Philip and Elizabeth (The Americans)
For whom the mission always comes first,much like carrie.

The best movies couples:
  • Killing Me Softly, 2002... Lots of romance and suspense. Loved the script! Every minute a surprise, an agony. The ending, in my opinion, was the best it could be. I loved every second of this movie and in the end I still learned lessons.
  • Michael Douglas and Sharon Stone in 'Basic Instinct', 1992. A thriller between the couple in this movie is as engaging and mysterious as it is between Brody and Carrie! It's worth checking.I recommend!
  • Probably Hannibal Lector and Clarice Starling but that's only in the books. Their relationship is totally different in the films.
  • John and Jane Smith (Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie) in Mr.& Mrs. Smith. Both assassins working for competing agencies, neither has any idea about the other and each thinks their spouse works a boring office job until they find they are up against each other on a contract, then have to try to kill each other until their agencies try to kill them and they have to team up to stay alive.
  • "Portrait of a lady on fire" about a RL of two young women on a remote french island in the 1800 century.the way the RL develops the intense looks...that the few days they had with each other lasted a lifetime to look back on it ,glad their love happened at all no matter how short... .much like carrie and brody had such a short time of happiness together.Adele Haenel and noemie merlant...wonderful actresses
The best couples in literature:
  • The English Patient (1992)‍
  • The Coldest City (2012)
  • M. Butterfly (1988)
  • Red Sparrow (2018)
  • The Russia House (1990)
  • Cloak & Dagger (1946)
  • Spies (1928)
  • Hitchcock classics The 39 Steps (1935) and North by Northwest (1959).

Secret missions. A dash of romance. International intrigue. What’s not to like?

Which couple do you consider in TV series, books and movies that would be as hot and complex as Brody and Carrie?

2023.03.20 22:10 Andreastheslimjim Cases where LE and investigators really did a great job

Any user of this sub will be well aware that inexperienced, lazy, or even outright malicious police work is among the biggest factors that allow serial killers to roam free. Plenty of cases come to mind. Pickton, Yorkshire ripper, etc. The list is almost endless.
I recently have been reading more about Richard Chase and it stands out, in my opinion, as a case where the police did a great job. A bunch of the guys were rookies yet they still built a great case and captured him relatively quickly. Douglas claims credit which I think is a massive insult to those guys, Ray Biondi in particular.
What are other cases where the police did a great job? I think these cases deserve to be highlighted and I was wondering if you guys can think of a case/multiple cases that are similar in that vein.

2023.03.20 22:09 sarahcominghome 41/F/The Netherlands - looking for meaningful connection

Hi there,
A little about me:
I'm a Norwegian-Irish woman living in the Netherlands (my partner is Dutch, which is how I ended up here almost 14 years ago by now). I've lived most of my life in Norway, but also lived in the UK for 4 years and grew up bilingual (English and Norwegian).
I am an HSP (hsp) and possibly on the autism spectrum. I have pretty good social skills and enjoy making connections with people, but social activities tire me out quite quickly and I find small talk stressful. I am (needless to say?) an introvert. I feel deeply and am greatly moved by art and nature.
Because I often need time to process and reflect on both thoughts and feelings, writing is the most comfortable way for me to get to know people, and is how I met my now (IRL) BFF of almost 14 years. I write long and rambling letters about life, books, writing, my cats, nature, spirituality, culture, food, travel... And I would love it if you do the same. I'm interested in getting under the surface (though I realise that takes a little time), and really talking about the things that matter to us. But I also love sharing a laugh and silly memes (puns, references to my favourite books and shows, and cats being weird cats are some of my faves).
I live in a small village where I spend my days writing, reading, walking and talking to my cats too much (particularly when I'm home alone). I also like to explore the area and take part in village activities (we've only lived here for about 8 months so it's still new to me).
I'm partial to email, but getting snail mail is also fun, so I am open to both.
Some things I like, in no particular order:
Some of my favourite artists/writers are: Van Gogh, Munch, Beethoven, Nina Simone, Leonard Cohen, Douglas Adams, Neil Gaiman, Jane Austen, and Fredrik Backman.
So... if you've gotten this far and you're still interested, I'd love to hear from you. I don't care about your age, gender identity or geographical location. I do care about that your written English is good enough to allow meaningful exchange, that you are not put off by long messages, and that you don't mind waiting a little while for a reply.

2023.03.20 22:07 starlord265 This show made me want to learn piano

As I’m sure it did for a lot of people, this show made me realize the true beauty behind music, specifically piano. I always wanted to learn piano as a kid, but there weren’t many good teachers where I lived so I ended up doing guitar with my friends. I love guitar, but I just don’t find the passion behind making music on the guitar like I want to with piano. I’ve come to love classical music over the years and just think piano can produce the most beautiful music. For those of you who are starting out or starting playing piano because of the show: how expensive is this new hobby of mine going to be? I know it’s relatively easy to learn online, but pianos are expensive and sound equipment isn’t cheap either. I really do want to do this and I have the willpower to do so. I’m working full time and doing multiple martial arts lessons through the week, so I can probably find 30min-1hr a day to practice. Is it worth picking up if I’m not sure it’ll turn into anything?

2023.03.20 22:07 BingusChingus_ Fanmade Community Event - Encyclomania! Codexing! - Large Scroll Prize Pool!

Welcome to the first installation of Encyclomania! We have a 200 SUMMONING SCROLLS prize pool currently, with more possibly on the way!
(This is an Orna exclusive event, sorry Aethric-goers.)
Duration: April 1st, midnight UTC to April 15th, midnight UTC


Encyclomania is a long-term competition where you start from a fresh character and attempt to gain as many completed codex entries as possible. Everyone will start at Level 1 when the challenge begins, and you will have the first 2 weeks of April to get as many entries as possible.


If an account is invalid or becomes invalid in any way, it will no longer be allied with Codex Lord*. Please double check before you begin so you don't have any progress that isn't counted.*



These rewards may possibly change or increase up until the event starts, so look often! It might be more worth it to participate than you think!
\Summoning Scroll rewards can be claimed at any time for any event in the next year, but you are responsible for claiming them. For example, you can stash these until Pumpkinhead, if you for some reason want Pumpkinhead.*
If you are interested in contributing something like scrolls towards making the prize pool bigger, please DM me! It's obviously not required, but the option is there. I'll be working with you and the winners of the competition so rewards get transferred cleanly and without a lot of hassle. If you want to back out from contributions, please also let me know within a reasonable timeframe! Things happen, I understand.
TLDR: Want to participate? Read the rules! Start right when the April event drops, and end 2 weeks later!
Happy Codexing!
There's a current discussion post in Orna Legends for this event as well, if you'd like to chat about it with other people in more of a chat-like situation, but I'll still be looking at Reddit for questions, comments, and concerns. Join us there! https://discord.gg/orna-legends?event=1087484353782763580

2023.03.20 22:07 EJ881903 James Reimer's refusal to pledge allegiance to Big Gay

I see that the usual foaming-at-the-mouth Redditor brigade is pretty mad that James Reimer of the San Jose Sharks is refusing to wear a gay pride-themed ice hockey jersey at Pride Night.
Not sure it would ever be acceptable for a straight guy to say this on any other sub, but here goes....does the Big Gay LGBTQ industrial complex ever stop and think that forcing people to wear their emblem is just tacky and heavy-handed? Is there really any time where a political/social group should be allowed to force other people to wear its emblem, without that person having any say in it? It is so bizarre to me that a certain element of the LGBTQ community can say, with a straight face, "You WILL wear our political emblem, and you'll like it, and if you don't, you're a hateful person." It's an incredibly childish, immature approach to engaging with others.
I suspect many gays don't actually want to force people to wear the gay pride logo against their will. This feels like top-down corporate virtue signaling meant to appease the type of blindly tribal left wing shit heads that you see on whitepeopletwitter.

2023.03.20 22:06 zepy3 North Bay Hardwoods Dealers

I'm trying to find a place to buy hardwood and high quality hardwood ply in the North Bay. Ideally in the Napa/Sonoma area.
I've tried a few smaller lumber suppliers around me but the amount of hardwoods and hardwood plywoods they can get are limited. They're also always custom order so I don't get to see what I'm buying until it arrives.
I'd love a place where I can walk in and find exactly what I want, select my pieces and walk out with what I need all at once.
I'm just a hobbyist that wants to build some nice cabinets.

2023.03.20 22:06 aeralure Should I get Diablo II Resurrected (PS5)?

I'm assuming the answer to this will be a resounding yes, but before you answer:
I've never played it. At that time, I was more into console gaming and didn't like the PC style of game. I have in years since played plenty of ARPGs and CRPGs. Questionable reviews kept me away from Diablo III and the franchise. However, for some reason or another, I preordered Diablo IV, I think in part because of its having some coop, and thinking it would be fun to play at the beginning of the game's life cycle. I have also played a few seasons of Path of Exile and had a brilliant time, so it didn't seem too risky. Some things I'd change, but overall I had fun in D4 so now I am wondering about D2 while waiting for June.
Would it be fun to play in the meantime? I don't know anyone who plays it. The excitement around it in my PSN friend groups wore off when D3 came out and everyone played that for a while. There's coop, but it isn't quite like D4, where coop is more pervasive. If you like PoE and D4, would D2 be worth checking out if it looks like you'd be playing solo? How active is D2 these days, on console? Being a classic, and D4 being a few months away, maybe it is still active?
I probably should just check it out from a gaming history standpoint, I realize, but any thoughts?

2023.03.20 22:06 Tek466 21 [M4F] Illinois/Anywhere/Online - Nerdy guy seeking a lady older or around my age for a flirty friendship or fwb :)

Of course, anyone 18 or older is welcome but I’d love to befriend someone older in their 30s or 40s etc who is perhaps in need of some company as I know how it feels to be feeling alone.
My name is Dylan and I’m a 21 year old single guy from northeastern Illinois in the US. Ever find yourself nice and cozy and really wishing you had that special someone to look forward to talking to and hearing from?
I’m seeking some kind of close connection, whether that’s something where we remain friends yet can be flirty or romantic such as a friend with benefits.
Sexually I’m very open and have been very affection starved and touch starved lately, haha.
I like to say upfront that I will always be mindful and considerate of your feelings and boundaries, especially concerning anything flirty or more intimate that we might get into. It’s important to me and we’d never have to do anything we weren’t comfortable with or ready for.
Physically I'm 6ft tall, I'm average/slim build, and I'm white/Caucasian with hazel eyes and dark brown hair. I wear glasses too :)
Now that we've established who I am and what I'm looking for, here are a few interests of mine to get to know me better!
• Fall/Autumn season
I had to list this one because I just adore the fall and everything that comes with it. My birthday is in October too so it's always been my favorite month. I much prefer fall and winter over a muggy humid summer. In the cooler seasons there's always ways to warm up.
• Candles and Incense
I love candles and incense and stuff like this!! I feel like you don't find guys into this stuff that much but I definitely am an exception.
• Technology
I'm good at fixing electronics and I'm quite nerdy in that aspect. So if something breaks I can fix it ;) I'm also good with my hands and quite inclined mechanically and quite the nerd :P
• Music
I love genres such as classic rock, alternative rock, psychedelic rock, gothic rock, heavy metal, punk, post punk, hardcore, etc. My current favorite bands are The Cure and Joy Division/New Order. But I like tons of older and newer bands as well. such as: Bauhaus, Velvet Underground, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Type O Negative, Nirvana, Rush, Pink Floyd, Janis Joplin, the Wipers, Spacemen 3, Meshuggah, Megadeth, Buzzcocks, MC5, Stooges, 13th Floor Elevators, Screaming Trees, Green Day, Alice in Chains, Asylum Party, My Bloody Valentine, King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard, Jefferson Airplane, etc.
• Cooking and Baking
I like to cook and learn new recipes, as well as bake fun things too! It's always nice when the house feels nice and cozy and smells good. I appreciate the simple pleasures in life, a cozy cup of tea and music or a movie in bed or sitting outside is so nice! I believe in veganism and I've been trying to become more vegan lately in what I eat.
• Animals
I love animals of all types, and I currently have an older cat which I adore to death! We rescued her from the local shelter. She's the sweetest thing. (I think I love her more than anyone in the house lol, she just makes me so happy) :) I also don't kill insects or bugs, I catch and release them outside.
• Art
I enjoy art, both creating it from time to time such as drawing, and admiring other peoples work. There's just something so fun about it and seeing things so beautiful.
• Houseplants
I love houseplants and really anything nature related and also spiritual such as crystals and rocks. I love to help my mom in caring for all of our plants and also gardening outside when its a good growing season. Its fun! I also like cottage core and goblin core type vibes and enjoy sitting out on the deck burning incense, its peaceful :)
• Photography
I recently got a DSLR camera, a Nikon D5500 and a D200 and I've really been enjoying taking photos of my cat and nature landscapes! This includes closeups, photos of trees, the fields, etc. I've been working a lot on composition, long exposures, getting nice blurred backgrounds, depth of field, etc. It's interesting.
Thanks for taking the time to get to know me.
Thank you for checking out my post and if I seemed to catch your interest I'd love to hear from you soon!

2023.03.20 22:01 Lord_Mallory55 THE WOMAN OF STEEL? [Other]

What would you think about an alternate universe with a female-Clark as Superwoman in the golden age, is the only change together with her love interest, is not Earth-11...meet Clara Kent/Superwoman!
[this is just a stunt for discussing characters on a Superfamily alternative universe and for a potential fan art serie or fan fic, every criticism, joke, comment, suggestion, question is well received!]
BORN: Krypton, a moon in a distant galaxy// 28/02/1918, SMALLVILLE, KANSAS

-Music-Hall fan, Katherine Hepburn and James Stewart fan
-Favourite books: Scarlet Pimpernel adventures, Jane Austen, Upton Sinclair and Virginia Wolf, somewhat eclectic

-Deeply in love with Louis Lane, which strongly rejects the Superheroine
-Widely admired
The El family & Krypton
Krypton was a decadent civilization located on a moon near a large gaseous planet in the orion belt. In the past they had visited earth and other planets expanding civilization, but their penchant for slavery, war, resource extraction and violence caused many of these projects to fail. Even in 10,500 BC the Kryptonians almost caused the terraforming of the earth, melting the poles and destroying Atlantis and other civilizations, causing among other things the end of the ice age.
Over the centuries the Kryptonians lost the fuel necessary to travel and ended up confined to their planet, dedicated to warfare, genetic engineering-creating clones whose organs they needed to extend their lives-to pleasure and to exploiting the subsoil of their planet.
Jor-El and Lara were a couple of scientists critical of the system and supporters of a kind of democracy and pacifism. They had a daughter, Kala-El in a natural way against all the rules of Krypton. Lara managed to manufacture a small ship capable of making a space jump to save her daughter from the end of Krypton. General Zod stole her design and managed to build a larger fleet of ships but Jor-El managed to sabotage them and send them to the phantom zone. Lara decided to send Kala to Earth because she felt that her culture was much kinder and more hopeful than Jor-El who preferred to send her to New Genesis, another inhabited planet far away.
Joe&Martha Kent, Kansas life
Joe and Martha Kent were a Quaker farming couple whose farm was struck by the pod carrying Kala-El in 1918. Although owners of substantial property they were a very humble, cooperative, austere, devout and civil rights-minded people. Martha Kent was a descendant of Kansas abolitionist guerrilla fighter John Brown. They both raised Clara very lovingly and unwilling to ask too many questions about the baby's origin. Clara was a very sickly child as her body did not adapt to the earth, she was affectionate and obedient and devoured books. The Kent family were avowed supporters of the New Deal and Joe Kent was one of the leaders of the local farmers union.
With puberty she developed very fast and her superpowers began to appear. Clara soon began to excel in swimming and ballet, but Joe forbade her to pursue a professional career to prevent her from taking advantage of her powers, and also forbade her to use her superpowers to help others, fearful of humanity's reaction and wary of savior messiahs in the era of interwar dictators. Clara rebelled against her father but eventually gave in. In 1936 Joe Kent died of a heart attack. Clara was unable to go to college after her father's death and worked as a teacher and nurse's aide in Smalville. Her engagement to Pete Ross, her teenage sweetheart failed in 1939 when she revealed her powers to Pete and he panicked, although he later promised to keep the secret.
Between 1939 and 1941 Clara lived in Canada and Alaska searching for the Fortress of Solitude but with the outbreak of World War II she decided to enlist as a nurse in the Pacific, refusing to use her powers except to help the wounded, fearing to cause more harm than good. After a leave of absence in 1944 she returned to Alaska where she found the Fortress of Solitude and its true origin.
After learning about the Holocaust first and the atomic bombs later, Clara decided to become Superwoman with the support of her mother Martha and emigrated to Metropolis, where in October 1945 she was hired by Louis Lane, who had just returned from Europe.
-Major Louis Lane, senior reporter in the Daily Planet, see below
-Perry Weiss, owner and editor in chief of the Daily Planet. Born in Oddessa in 1886. Jewish inmigrant from humble origins who became a skilled journalist and founded the Daily Planet as a tool of the Metropolis Republican Party to unseat the city bosses of the time. Still a staunch liberal, he supported Roosevelt in 1932 and 1936, is an ally of Mayor LaGuardia and won the Pulitzer Prize in the 1920s for defending the innocence of Sacco and Vanzetti. Friend and ally of Louis Lane's father. He is very demanding with his employees but is very fond of Clara. He admires and defends Superwoman despite Louis Lane's distrust. Best friend of Cat Grant.
-Cat Grant, Co-chair of Perry Weiss, Pulitzer winner, closeted lesbian and Ayn Rand Fan. Born 1901, she comes from a fine family of Metropolis Kineckerbockers. She is like Louis the least liberal element of the newspaper. To protect herself she married a very old friend of her father's who helped her lead a double life. For twenty years she lived with a painter named Margaret Ivy. Considered the best writer of the Daily Planet, in addition to being a journalist she has published two novels. Very elegant and popular in intellectual circles. She is tremendously authoritarian. She mistreats Clara a lot because she does not respect her authority and because of her different political ideas, but as Clara grows as a journalist and Cat Grant suspects that she is Superwoman, she will protect her and push her forward without Clara knowing it. Best friend of Perry Weiss.
-Assistant photographer Jimmy Olsen and best friend of Clara. He comes from a town in Massachusetts. He is 7 years younger than Clara. He is a party animal, friendly, generous and somewhat naive. Yet he is a skilled photographer who has been able to capture the worst of the night and day of Metropolis. Miraculously he always gets the best pictures of Superwoman (Clara helps him a little). Very democratic and complains about working for a newspaper that is too conservative for his taste. Adores Clara whom she treats as her big sister. It doesn't even cross her mind that she is Superwoman. Jimmy thinks that Louis is a snob and a bigot.

On the other hand he is in love with Clara Kent as much as he rejects the figure of Superwoman, he deludes himself about the identity of both. A bit James Stewart in Vertigo, which destabilizes and infuriates Clara.
Lex Luthor
Rocket engineer, CEO of TELCORP and Heir of Nikola Tesla. Brilliant scientist, defines himself as a "radical humanist", but in the early 30s supported closetely fascism to stop "imperialism" and "usury" and now secretly supports Stalin to defeat "predatory western capitalism". The world's greatest philanthropist. Loving father and husband. Hates Superwoman to death and believes she spells the end of humanity. Paranoid and ruthless but convinced that he does everything for the greater good.
General Zod & Faora
Political dissidents like the El on Krypton on the other hand believed that Krypton's only salvation lay in emigrating and invading, terraforming and exterminating other planets. They almost succeeded in a coup d'état but after their failure they and their henchmen tried to flee by space jumping their ships, Jor-El managed to sabotage the launch and send them to the phantom zone. Over the years they managed to escape and arrived on Earth in 1946, shortly after Clara showed herself to the world as Superwoman. They tried to exterminate all humanity but Superwoman and some American and Russian scientists managed to defeat them. Their invasion caused 5,000 human casualties but could have caused complete extermination. The experience was traumatic for Clara because she had to send Zod and Faora back to the phantom zone where they would surely die. Zod, Faora and their henchmen had not yet developed the full powers of a yellow sun like Earth's and so several of them were killed by human bombs and missiles. Their remains were stored by Russians and Americans. Superwoman managed to expel all Kryptonian technology and weaponry into space so that humans would not use it for warfare.
The Toyman
Former entrepreneur and inventor of the 1920s toy business who was ruined in the Great Depression by banks and various betrayals. After a crime spree he was imprisoned in 1933 but escaped from prison recently completely crazed and ready to take revenge on the whole city using his inventions.
A truly near-indestructible abomination mistakenly created by the U.S. military in Zone 51 using the remains of the Kryptonians defeated by Superwoman in the failed 1946 invasion and a strange alien technology found in Roswell that was hidden from Superwoman.
Brainiac "the eternal traveller"
An android, merging a famous astronaut and artificial intelligence, which was used by the first civilization of Krypton to collect information from other worlds. It is more than 100,000 years old. With the passage of time he revealed against the Kryptonians, became evil and phobic to any form of life that he considered imperfect or inferior. It caused the destruction of many cultures. He wanders through space visiting planets and analyzing life forms. He probably has no enthusiasm for humans, much less for a descendant of the House of El.

2023.03.20 22:00 measured_crisis AITA for telling my mom I don't want her sending me instagram videos while I work?

Throw away because I got family here.
I (F29) have a medical condition that has given me a short life span, from birth. It's okay, and I'm ready. Crisis are painful and I can't really live alone, otherwise, well, they would find me due to smell or something.
That hasn't stopped me from doing what I love, I work from home, and enjoy my family (mom, a sibling and a cat), mom doesn't work anymore, she lost her job due to Covid and no one would hire her due to her age, and there are still two years to go before she claims her age insurance money. Her husband left her a small amount from which she receives some money monthly but mostly I take care of the bills, food, and sibling stuff. I have some money saved for my funeral as well, so everything is ready.
Now, I know my condition, and I don't like it, but that doesn't mean that I will just stay in my bed mopping, right?, I work almost 14 hours a day, because I don't like to have my kind on idle, and during that time, while I binge on Instagram during breaks, doesn't mean that I have all the time in the world to stay watching videos.
Mom doesn't understand this, like she doesn't understand that short life ≠ spending every red penny on "experiences". She wants to go out dinning every weekend, from friday to sunday, she likes to go out to places where I won't get tired or I can be included. I get it, but its expensive and usually I have to pay for it. Last weekend I refused to go out, since I have a big project that I really love working on, she seemed disappointed but agreed. So we asked some delivery and I stayed working. During the whole time (a good 8 hours) she would send me instagram videos, non-stop, asking me "have you seen it yet" or joking about it. Now, I get it, she was bored, she says she wants to spend as much time with me as possible, but I have things to do, I just didn't have the energy to watch stupid videos (I don't even think the things she likes are funny, but I don't have the heart to tell her) so I messaged her telling her to please stop it, I was busy and I would see her for dinner, we would watch a movie and buy a pizza, sounded fair to me. But instead she came to my office, crying and asking why I was being so cruel, telling me she wanted to spend time with me, so I lost it and told her that spending time with her doesn't pay her outing requests, she left in a huff and hasn't spoken to me since. I asked her a few hours ago to go grab lunch together (my treat) so we could talk and she ignored me. I'm starting to feel like the AH, so I need the impartial advice of strangers
Reddit, AITA here?
