2023.03.20 22:30 Simple_Tank_3684 About to finish uni, last ever summer of "freedom", what would you do?

Hey, very long post so sorry about that.
I'm in my final few weeks at a Russel group university. Minus a few essays I'm effectively done. I've worked a lot throughout my degree so I'm in a decent place. Got about 12.5k saved in total, realistically will get a 1st in business and management and have a job for a graduate scheme at a big 4 which starts in September. I did a placement year with them last year so know what it's like/ what to expect too.
Throughout my degree I've been working at the careers office at my uni, and they've given me 30 hours a week until mid July when I formally graduate. I can work remotely, so those 30 hours are without a commute, and roughly equate into a 20ish-k salary, and I'll do the hours over 4 days a week and the work is pretty chilled and I have a really great team. It'll be 7.5 hours a day, so I can be done by 4pm on those 4 days, so very little stress.
I have worked really hard, but I am also very fortunate to be in the position that I am in. I am now basically struggling with what to do with my "FIRE" mind versus my "I am 23 and want to live a bit mind". I am very happy doing the 30 hours over 4 days, but originally was planning on also getting a coffee shop job for an 3 extra days work a week to earn more cash. I was then hoping that this could be full time from mid July until the big 4, as I currently have a 6 week gap. However, I have an odd gut feeling not to do this. I may just be being lazy? But a part of me thinks that this is realistically the last big chunk of free time I'll have for a very long time and I'm wondering if I should just enjoy the time off and work on some other things? I also need to move to Edinburgh in those 6 weeks from London, so could enjoy the Fringe if I get there a bit early.
I wanted to go to New York with a friend for a week over the summer (probably £2k), I wanted to buy myself the massive iPad as a well done present for myself for being the first in my family to get a 1st/finishing my degree (£1100) and I also wanted to put £1000 into a bunch of new clothes/health related things. In the last month I've started going to the gym 6 days a week and eating really healthy; this costs more too but I feel so much better. I'm 6 foot 2 so tend to eat a lot which is pricey sadly. With my grad job I'll get a £7k interest free loan too, so "including" this I'll have about £20k in total saved by Christmas (or 13k without ) and this assumes that I make those above purchases. If I don't it'll be £5k more. I also wanted to spend some time learning more German (already speak a good amount) as well as some Spanish too. My mum lives quite centrally in London as well so I can be there which is awesome. I also wanted to learn to video edit and a few other things, maybe a bit of personal training to make sure I don't break my back in the gym too.
I was thinking about trying to do a secondment to New York in 3-4 years time and would love to check it out again to make sure I'd be making a good decision going there. I went in December but stayed at a friend's house so it was only £1k in total, but this time I'll be in a hotel so reckon it'll be about £2k (for my share as I'll split with my friend).
I am basically wondering if I've gone insane? I'm extremely FIRE/money minded normally and feel almost ridiculous planning all of that.. and yet I feel like at the end of the day it might not make a big difference anyway? I'll hopefully be a chartered accountant in 2-3 years on £40-50k anyway with a fairly high earning potential. Am I being stupid considering this? What would you do? And I'm not meaning for any of this to come off as arrogant and I hope it isn't. I'm extremely grateful to be where I am. But if I work 6 to 7 days a week and don't buy those things I'll end up with an extra 10k or so by Christmas, but for some reason I just really cannot be bothered to have yet another boss/back in a coffee shop (which I've done a huge amount of in the past) and think it might be best to just try and have an awesome summer before a pretty intense grad scheme. What would you do? Sorry for the huge post but this is going over and over in my mind and I'm struggling to make a decision.
TLDR: should I be financially stupid yet life my life? 23m

2023.03.20 22:25 SooshiSucker [F4A] The Demon Within

Afterlife High is a school where students of the supernatural can live in peace and gain an education. Also, a roof over their head. In a town full of ruthless (aka paranoid) Christians, they would not be safe without this school. It keeps them safe. Entities such as ghosts, vampires, werewolves, banshees, fairies, ogres, zombies, etc. It is no place for a human. But, what happens when a human finds her way in the school?
It is the start of a new year. And a girl named Angel enrolls in this school. Everyone is talking about her. Even the teachers. “What is she doing here?” “She will be eaten alive” “How did she get here?”. All questions that are ringing in the halls of campus. One day, a curious student finds out the truth. Angel is possessed by a demon. A special demon. One that has the soul of a mortal inside of her.
Heyo! I have gotten an itch to jump into the horror genre. Along with romance of course. This is a FxF story of a human girl who has a whole other personality. A rather…sinister personality. She’s possessed by a demon! And her love interest finds that out the hard way.
I was thinking of making this into a enemies to lovers thing. Where you play a bully of Angel’s. Who is always teasing her for being human. And one day, she goes a bit too far. And Angel’s true self is revealed. You can play any kind of entity! As long as it is supernatural. And of course female.
I’m Angelique. I’m in EST time and have been doing role play for almost a year. Not that long. But I like to say I am fairly experienced and always trying to improve. I can respond in several paragraphs or just 2 paragraphs. Whatever is necessary. I can do both 1st and 3rd person but I have a preference for 1st. I am very active throughout the day (I am a student in school so it CAN vary). And I enjoy OOC chat a lot.
I’m looking for a partner who is experienced. Perhaps more than me. Who can give me kind criticism and tips as we role play. Also someone who can communicate well, is active (several responses a day), is literate (2 paragraphs minimum), is open minded, loves horror, and has discord.
If you are interested, send a DM. Send me an introduction of yourself! And perhaps of the character you’d like to play. I look forward to hearing from you.

2023.03.20 22:24 AlertTangerine [DISCUSSION] ChatGPT backed rewriting of a post on why 'All Quiet on the Western Front' is a Masterpiece.

DISCLAIMER: As the message is of outmost importance, And on top of it, we live in a time where humanizing the other side - as this movies teaches us to do - is all the more central, as we have Russia-China vs. the collective West as a world-dynamic at the moment. Learning from history is key to avoid our past mistakes and censoring the message is only adding to the larger problem we face as humans. The last time I posted this, it was taken down and removed arbitrarily by a moderator (no idea which moderator specifically). Also, there was a huge mob-mentality reaction in the comments, and my guess is that it has to do with the fact that the movie was good, that it is about the German side, that it is on Netflix and won four Academy Awards, because most criticism was mostly about trivial side-aspects rather than about the core message of the movie. And yes, I asked ChatGPT to rewrite my original post, as a sort of social and personal experiment. I also hoped to spread the message further. Here the the link to the original post I wrote. As I had a few "this is a retake on the stabbing in the back" myth that Hitler peddled with the French being responsible for it in the movie, I would say that this is a misunderstanding of the situation described in the movie. It clearly is the war-hungry German general who single-handedly pushes the soldiers onward, even though the war is nearly over (something that really happened in many instances, historically speaking). The French soldiers are shown with a lot of sympathy as people just trying to survive.
So here is the post once again:
If you're familiar with Erich Maria Remarque's classic novel, you'll be struck by the modern adaptation now streaming on Netflix. This powerful production expertly captures the horrors of war with vivid detail and humanity, offering a fresh and compelling perspective on one of the most important and complex periods in modern history.
As you watch, you'll appreciate the film's top-notch production values, from the richly detailed visuals to the haunting score. But what truly sets "All Quiet on the Western Front" apart is the way it tells its story. This is no mere remake; it's a thoughtfully crafted retelling that gets to the very heart of Remarque's original novel.
By focusing on key themes and ideas, this film offers a new perspective on the experience of war and its impact on those who fight it. It's a challenging and deeply moving viewing experience that is not for the faint of heart, but it is a must-watch for anyone interested in the history of war, the power of storytelling, and the human condition.
In a time when war movies are often criticized for glorifying violence and conflict, "All Quiet on the Western Front" stands apart as a powerful and necessary work of art. It's a reminder of the true cost of war, and of the importance of striving for peace in a world that all too often seems to prefer conflict.

2023.03.20 22:20 anicetito Small trip to silicon valley, to feel vibes?

Hi there folks. I would like to make a short trip to Silicon Valley or nearby areas (San Jose? Palo Alto?) to work remotely from there and, I don't know, feel the silicon valley vibes?
My plan is to have some time for tech attractions like visiting FAANG companies installations (not sure if that's possible tho, just wondering) or stuff like that. I'm not looking to create a startup or something like that, not even focused on doing networking (although it would be nice if it happens), just want to feel the startup and top tech vibes by working in there, either in cafeterias or some coworking spaces.
Am I having unrealistic expectations or biased by what I read about silicon valley on the internet? Any suggestions?
I'm from Central America so that's why the expectations (although I've been in the US before)

2023.03.20 22:16 Foreign_Rate_7648 fantasy rp partner wanted! ♡

Hey there! i’m searching for a fantasy setting rp partner. i’ll get down to the basics. I’m 22, only willing to rp with ppl over 18. (Also no cishet men sorry.)

Searching for a romantic plot, tropes are always welcome (enemies to lovers, forbidden love, and whatnot)

i should note, this post doesn’t reflect my writing style, as this is how i type casually lol

2023.03.20 22:16 b12three [21+] [Other] [Online] I need 3 more cybernetic misfits to rage against a relentless corporate hell. Use fantasy rules in a nano-doomsday setting. It's my second game but we can walk through it together.

I'm hosting a new bi-weekly campaign starting on April 2, 2023 1:00 PM! Central Time/US
Its my second game DMing, the first game started 2 months back and runs on the Sundays this game wouldn't be running (bi-weekly games). I'm absolutely loving this as a new hobby, I've poured a lot more time, money and love into it than I ever thought I would, and feel compelled to share some of the fun with internet strangers. If you're looking for wacky adventures in world for the not so faint of heart, maybe needing a break from the typical euro-fantasy setting, or just looking for a new group, I got three spots open and a lot of time to help you understand the system. (its fun). Oh I forgot to say, this shit gets dark. So if that isnt your thing this probably isnt the game for you.
We'll be utilizing Shadow of the Demon Lord mechanics, enemies, etc but the campaign itself will be based on the cyberpunk city featured in CY_BORG. All weapons/items will mechanically stay the same, but their appearance, shape, size, color, name etc are up to the player. Magic does not exist in this world, so instead what we'll be doing is making up excuses for why it works.
Game play EX:
Use a sword, but call it a light saber
Use a warhammer, call it a stereo on a stick. Beatstick.
Do necromancy, reboot neural implants of the dead and puppet them
Do divination, hack into every camera system and network possible
Do illusion, upload nightmares or create mirror copies of yourself
Cast fireball by making an enemy's grenade self-detonate
Hate the corps? make malware eat the rich. Malvore them
Embrace the dystopia
Summary of the book I'm using for Mechanics
Its easier to pick up than D&D 5e, and course I'd help you. Mix and match till you find something you like ill be there to guide you. Its fun for both us. Name of the book: Shadow of the Demon Lord. See the bottom of the post for a free copy.
Summary of the Setting:
// Constantly in flux; shifting, distorting, always reborn as something worse. Destruction by ecological catastrophes, the fallout of history’s belligerence; by modern man-made Miseries or the blood spilled by the reckless machine of capitalist supremacy. Mankind’s greatest ability truly is to destroy itself in creative ways. Designer demise, consumer-customized death, endlessly on repeat.
Poisonous space rocks, nuclear weapons, cyclical revolutions, warring nations, warring corporations, warring neighbors; pandemics, tsunamis, volcanoes. In between it all: direct person-machine interfaces, tactical neural implants, and bacteria from outer space hijacking intercellular nanorobotics. And the sky is full of ads. ////
Everyone is interfaced/injected/infected/infested/ with something. Everyone wants something from everyone else. Everyone is a liar and a cheat. Everyone wants more creds xxxx //
Welcome to the year 20X3. // Welcome to the City of Y
Send me a discord DM, we can set up a time to talk over discord VC.
If we both think its a good fit, then we're gonna destroy some private property together. Discord: Habibi#9799

2023.03.20 22:09 Prospect107 Buses Park In Bike Lane (Williamsburg)

There are buses that park in the bike lane on Wythe and Penn, right next to the BQE off ramp. 8 feet away, there is a white bike, memorializing where a cyclist died a few years back in the incredibly dangerous intersection.
The buses don't care. They have parked in the bike lane for years, although they stopped temporarily when the death occurred.
I spoke with one of the bus drivers and he said he's being ordered to park there by the rabbis in th Boys School of Central (UTA) United Talmudical Academy. It's only a matter of time before there is another death or serious accident. What can be done to make them follow the laws? I've called 311 multiple times - totally useless.

2023.03.20 21:49 SouthParkiscool I've been traveling to different realities for six years. Help me. (Part 3)

Part 2
I fell backwards through the portal, landing on the ground back in the reality of hell. The dread spiked as I got back up on my feet. I thought the two blond maniacs would follow me back in, but they didn't. The portal closed, offering me a view of somebody crying over the phone on their porch across the street. Did they notice the flash of light? They're probably too caught up in their own business. The attacks being as gruesome as they are, I'm surprised I haven't died yet.
I stepped back into the house and closed the door behind me. William and Jason sit on the couch, faces pale and mouths hanging open as they watched helicopter footage of wild tentacle creatures running down streets and tackling people. A tighter dread overtook me.
Was this really it for me? Was I going to die here because my parallel self thought revenge would somehow fix things? Do I think that way? No, I don't. If she thought nobody should feel trapped, she wouldn't have been okay with making me feel trapped. I guess that's because he only cares when she's the one feeling trapped. People are human to her until they do something she doesn't like, then she lowers her standards and treats them like animals… Somehow that's supposed to make peace. It doesn't.
I asked Jason if there was a room I could stay in. I was given a spare bedroom down the hallway. Once I found it, I layed down on the bed and stared at the ceiling, hoping I'd be alive for more than another 24 hours. Any moment, some creature was probably going to crash through the window or something, or a giant monstrosity was going to smash the house to the ground. I had never been more afraid of death in my life.
About 20 minutes later, I decided I had to distract myself from all the mayhem and fear in any way possible. I pulled out William's spare phone and Googled various things I was interested in. I assumed TikTok would be filled with video clips of the attacks, so I wasn't downloading that. I watched some YouTube videos though. My adrenaline decreased, but I knew that if I ran out of things to enjoy, I would get bored and the adrenaline would shoot back up.
I'm not sure I'd say putting autoplay on was a mistake. It kinda was, but it kinda led to something interesting for me. The third video to play automatically was a video of a news report from the day the attacks began.
It started with Ontario politicians answering questions from reporters, then the Breaking News animation flashed across the screen. A video taken in Sharon, Ontario showed one of the giants moving down a street, smashing houses along its way. The uncanny look of the thing and how it moved sent chills down my spine. I tapped the screen. The title appeared on the screen.
"First news reports of the giant attacks - Full news broadcast 11 AM to 12:30 PM"
This was the very first attack. Interesting. Morbid curiosity overtook me. The attacks were historical, and if I was going to die here, why not know more about what's going to kill me.
I kept watching. Video footage taken from the Newmarket Community Center was played. It showed two giants smashing buildings down Main Street. The white church blew up, with debris flying all around. The buildings to the south were also reduced to rubble and dust. It was saddening to watch. As the giants began smashing buildings beside the Community Center, the camera operator let out a shaky "Oh my god" then backed away. They aimed to their left. A dozen of the bystanders were slowly turning away. As if they wanted to run but were too curious. A couple of them ran. A few other people from up the street ran by with pale faces. After the giants had passed by and smashed the buildings further to the south, some people in the crowd began to have a conversation.
"What is going on today…? why is this happening…?"
"We don't know why they're doing this… have they been reported elsewhere?"
"I checked the news five minutes ago. Nothing."
"I'm checking it again… nothing"
"I just checked CP-2-4 and they have footage of one in East Gwillimbury"
As they're talking, the giants smash the churches to the south, then they knock down the grey apartment building. Explosions can be seen inside as it crumbles and a plume of smoke rises up.
The next video I watched was of the two giants knocking the apartment building down but from an angle to the south based on what I knew about the location.
The next video began with the camera pointed to the ground. The camera was aimed up and a bit shaky. The camera was aimed at two giants standing a mile away. Flames were thrown at an area obscured by trees. This is Aurora, isn't it? I guessed it was since it was the first of two places to be torched. The giants torched side to side then back and forth, then the trees obscuring the area caught fire. The camera operator turned around and ran without hesitation.
Another video was taken near the Burlington Skyway Bridge. Two giants knocked the bridge down from north to south. My gut clenched watching cars fall into the water below.
As terrifying these videos were, it was interesting to see the beginning of the attacks this close. The news mostly only played footage taken from news helicopters and the same bits of footage over and over. Many of the videos I had seen on the internet so far were videos I hadn't seen yet.
I looked up videos of the attack on Central Manhattan.
One video was taken from a window somewhere to the east of the Empire State Building. One of those horrifying giants seamlessly smashed its way through the skyscrapers, leaving expanding plumes of smoke behind. Once it reached the Empire State, it focused a ton on smashing it to the ground. A plume of smoke rose up against the oncoming plumes of smoke created by the destruction of the nearby buildings.
I had seen many things like this over my journey throughout the different realities, but this just seemed too familiar to me. Nothing about this reality was different until the attacks began. Not even some detection of the Godzilla-like giants beforehand. I'm in this reality where these attacks are happening and I can't escape. I sank in a pit of dread as that dawned on me. I had to deal with the craziness of the I was in. I needed to learn as much about the attacks as possible.
I looked up a more recent attack. The one in Bradford parallel me mentioned. I found multiple videos of it. The first video I watched showed a giant leveling a two story facility as people ran by and screamed. It was sad to see a place I was so familiar with be destroyed. The second video was shaky camera footage of two giants leveling some other facility, also with people running by and screaming. One was crying. The third video was helicopter footage of four giants smashing and attacking the town. Carving up the southeastern and northern areas. As sad as I felt, I noticed they didn't attack the part of town I lived in.
Wasn't that attack supposed to kill me? Or was it just supposed to scare me? Either way, I wasn't there to witness it. Of course, I could've been killed in a part of the town that was destroyed. Maybe my parallel self was playing coin toss. Either I live or die. Either way, he'd be benefited by the fact I would be fearing for my life in the event I'd survive. Then he visited me where I was miles away, after the attack on the town. He brought his cronies with him. The evil alternate versions of two people I knew of and liked very much. I'm still not comfortable specifying who.
As I continued my watch through the footage, I found some videos of the creature dump on the place I was just in. Watching the giants pour the creatures onto the city… the creatures running all over the place… down roads… across the roofs of buildings… through parks… just chill inducing and gut wrenching. I couldn't get through one whole video. Flashbacks of escaping that thing just kept popping up in my head as I watched.
I looked up some discussion threads about the attacks. Of course, everyone expressed how they didn't know what they would wake up to the next day, how they didn't know where they would be safe… some speculated hiding out in the mountains or down in subways would be a safe bet to stay alive. The subway part of the discussion was shot down later on in the thread by one claiming the creature dumps would render that idea hopeless. Others said bomb shelters would work. I needed to know if there were any bomb shelters around. Probably useless though, as the government probably wouldn't just let anybody in. The closest mountain that could keep anyone safe would be 4 hours away. There was another comment though, one that brought up Iran and Belgium being wiped off the map entirely by dozens of miles wide giants, and they suggested any country could be next to be destroyed by giants that size. The middle of the ocean would be a safer bet.
What about Lake Ontario? The eastern half of it. It's not an ocean but it's a pretty big body of water. As long as I don't go near any shoreside cities I'll be good. I ran over to William and asked him if he had a boat. I explained to him eastern Lake Ontario may be too big a body of water for the giants to care about. Unfortunately, he, nor Jason, nor anybody they knew had a boat. At least I had some relief for a moment. I fell back into the pit of dread and walked back to the spare bed.
As I browsed through Reddit, I came across a post about a rare angle of the attacks. The video was taken from a live stream that was held in a suburban area not too far away from where the giants were standing. Chills overtook me, seeing the giants again. They were holding their giant bags of creatures. The streamer said he didn't know what the giants were holding, then the giants tilted their bags and the thousands of creatures came raining down. My gut clenched hard. The last words of the streamer were what one would expect, but they chilled me due to the context.
"What the hell? No… god… please…"
He turned around and sprinted down the road. He aimed the camera up at the incoming creatures. They blocked the view of the sun and everything was darkened by shade. The streamer aimed the camera back out in front of him. You could see the sky on the horizon, but then a wall of blackness obscured it. My gut began to ache. The streamer fell to the ground and screamed. Nothing could be seen. Loud thuds were heard, then the stream ended. Then the video ended.
The people in the comments were freaked out. Many of them mentioned the chills they got watching the video. One comment thread went like this:
"I can't imagine standing there. Thinking you'll live, then just seeing that and KNOWING with great certainty you're about to die. Chilling. This is probably the most up close video I've found of this."
"I know more videos will surface, especially because the attacks are still going on right now, but this video will be something that always sticks with me"
(I pressed the link and it took me to a YouTube video showing a livestreamer in an office. She tells her viewers she's in the Empire State Building. She aims her camera out the window towards Central Park.
"It's 1 PM right now and…" A giant pops up in the middle of Central Park. I jumped while watching it. Chills ran straight down my spine. "What the hell is that?" The giant walked south, smashing through the buildings along Park Lane. It knocked down the world's skinniest skyscraper, then it smashed its way through some more buildings, including the Museum of Modern Art.
"Oh my god," the streamer says with a shaky weak voice.
She puts the camera down and you could hear quick footsteps and the creak of a door being swung open. The giant continues its straight faced rage through Central Manhattan, smashing down the Rockefeller buildings, the East Times Square buildings and battering Times Square in dust and smoke, then it stumbles a couple blocks to the east. A man over the intercom tells everybody to evacuate immediately.
The giant smashes the low rise buildings two blocks away, the low rise buildings one block away, then the room shakes. Loud crashes echo from below, along with light crashes somewhere behind the camera. Then the office light goes out. It looks as if the giant is rising, but then you can see its triangles, then the sky. The section of the building the room was in was falling. The camera started spinning, then the livestream ended. Then so did the video.)
"Absolutely terrifying. Imagine that being the last thing you see… this stuff going on right now is probably the worst, most insane stuff to happen in a long time. You should see the video where people are hiding in a room from the literal Lovecraft-like wild creatures.
Edit: here" (I opened this link and it took me to a YouTube video showing three people, including the camera operator, in a small toll booth room. The two others, one woman with blond hair who looked to be in her 30s and an adrogynous looking person with black hair who looked to be in his 20s, were both shaking, glancing between each other and the camera operator, then there was a loud bang at the door. Adrenaline rushed through me, hoping those people could be rescued. The camera was aimed at the door, which had multiple cracks in it. There was another bang. The door shook and the cracks got longer. One of the two people on the left began to cry. With yet another bang, pieces of the door flew across the room. The door itself began to loosen off its hinges. Then with one more bang, the bottom half of the door was pushed in by a round dark gray beast with about 10 long tentacle-like appendages. It was so uncanny looking, adrenaline shot up through me. My eyes were wide open watching it. It ran up to the camera operator, who moved to his right then backed up. The creature climbed up on him. He struggled, then the camera fell face first on the ground. Nothing could be seen, but loud painful screaming, growling, and a couple wet crunches could be heard.
Further down the thread was something even more terrifying but interesting.
I wonder why we haven't seen any videos of creatures attacking people
Those videos are probably very NSFW. They likely haven't made it past content filters.
Some pictures were posted to MorbidReality and somebody found a video of a creature attacking somebody's back and legs. If you can't take that kind of stuff do not look at it. It's very gruesome.
There's some on, along with many other videos I haven't seen anywhere else. Here's a link to an archive somebody is making.
I opened the link. I was taken to the page with the archive. The first video was titled Footage From Upper Canada Mall. It began on the roof of the mall. All that was heard were sirens and the sounds of helicopters. The camera operator aimed up at two giants being circled by two military helicopters. The giants appeared to be holding people. The giant on the right was holding two people who I can only describe as looking like a man and a woman, while the giant on the left was holding a woman. The giant on the right tossed the woman. She glided through the air. She hit the roof of the mall with a loud bang and turned into a red mist. I gagged and twitched. The camera operator kept the camera still. He had to have been in shock. He panned to the left a bit and caught the man landing on the roof of the mall with a loud thud while also turning into a red mist. I gagged again. What the hell? The camera was aimed up at the giant on the left, who was getting ready to throw the person it was holding. It tossed them towards the roof of the mall. They too landed with a loud bang while turning into a red mist.
That was something I never thought I'd ever see. People exploding into a bloody mist like they were nothing. Or just bags of blood. That's not something anyone should ever have to see. I'm glad that stuff won't make it past content filters. Hopefully, nobody who doesn't want to see that will ever see that ever. It's okay to be morbidly curious, and yes, it's historically significant, but I hope people are careful with footage like this.
The next video was titled "Seattle Explosion" and began on a freeway in what seemed to be the late afternoon. A man off camera said he was driving towards Seattle. He said he was driving down highways and filming in case he catches anything historic, and added that all his friends are doing the same in various parts of the US such as Houston, Texas. I was beginning to think about skipping this one due to anxiety. I didn't want to see people explode, but I assured myself it wasn't filmed close enough to capture such things. A minute into the video, the Seattle skyline could be seen in the distance. Seconds later, balls of yellow and orange erupted from every building.
These giants sure are making it a point to scare everybody. Dumping deadly creatures, torching entire areas, EMP Bubbles, Godzilla-like smashing, and now blowing up entire cities.
I don't know which one of those is going to happen to me.
What the hell do they want?
I'm afraid of having my guts sucked out by a creature
I'm afraid of being caught up in a torching
I'm afraid of being gassed
I'm afraid of being crushed to death
I'm afraid of being in an exploding city
I'm afraid of being tossed to the ground from high up in the air
Where are they going to hit next? Where are they going to hit next? Where are they going to hit next?
Where do I go?
I was hyperventilating for a couple minutes there. I paused the video and attempted to not judge my thoughts or feelings, then I wrote the above to acknowledge my feelings. Now I'm really starting to understand why people write sad songs about depression and anxiety. More so than I already did.
I looked at some of the titles of the next few videos in the archive. I hesitated to watch them, but I'll list the titles I read for curiosity's sake.
"Naypyidaw attack"
"Manila attack"
"Manila attack from north"
"Bradford attack from helicopter"
"Bradford attack angle 7"
(Six more Bradford attack videos, two of which are probably the ones I've already seen)
(Ottawa attack videos #27 to #2)
"Ottawa attack angle 1 - filmed by a Canadian Minister"
"Aftermath of Creature Dump in Niagara Region, Canada"
Out of curiosity, I decided to watch that last one I listed. It started in the backroom filled with boxes. The camera operator walked out of the room, into a smashed up restaurant. The front windows were shattered, tables and chairs were strewn everywhere. The camera was aimed to the right. Two bodies covered in blood were laying in the corner. It was unsettling to see. The camera was aimed back towards the windows. The operator moved up to them. A body was laying under an outdoor table.
After exiting the shop, the camera operator took a right and walked down the sidewalk. As he walked, he briefly looked inside different stores and multiple cars, all of which had shattered windows and thrashed items. No cars drove by. Not even police, fire department, or paramedics. No people were around at all. My breaths became shallow as I anticipated the worst. Something like a creature popping out of nowhere or another body.
A couple more blocks down the road, sirens began blaring in the distance. The camera operator walked by a store that had music playing from inside. It was something I hadn't thought of. Music that was being played as background noise was still being played through all the death and roaming creatures. They stepped through the shattered window, and as they walked to the center of the room, the music got clearer. It was a slow piano ballad about a woman telling her lover to go easy on her. It was weird hearing the song play in a smashed up deserted room with the world crumbling all around right outside. The words made it sound eerie in the context it was playing right in the middle of. As the song played, the camera operator moved broken table pieces out of their way and dug through some piles of table debris along the cracked wall on his left.
What is he looking for?
As the camera operator continued looking under knocked over tables, he began to sniffle. The song changed to a sad pop song with a high pitched piano melody. I knew the song. It was eerie too. It was about a breakup, but the lyrics about taking a metaphorical final bow echoed what I was feeling. The end of civilization, or at least the end of the civilization I was used to. I was getting very settled into this reality.
The camera operator walked to the back wall and looked around at the wreckage again. An ambulance drove by outside. The camera operator walked into the bathroom. It was reduced to rubble. Stalls ripped apart, toilets shattered, most of the mirrors were cracked… and blood was smeared across the wall near the back. The camera operator stood in one spot for a couple of moments before turning around and stepping out the door and back into the restaurant. They took some steps through the restaurant, then they aimed the camera at the ceiling. Then at the picture frames. One of them was lying on its face. Another one of them was tilted and ripped in half. Some happened to be in good shape.
After the tour of each of the paintings, the camera operator started rummaging the debris on the left side of the restaurant. As he did so, the next song began. This one was upbeat, juxtaposing the context it was playing in. It kinda creeped me out. It was supposed to be played for people's enjoyment, but nobody was enjoying anything. At least the lyrics were about persisting through absolutely anything. I guess that kinda fit, but things were too dark to think straight. The camera operator stopped rummaging about halfway to the back of the restaurant and stared on at the rubble that he would be digging through next. He zoomed in on what was clearly a shoe being worn by somebody unmoving under the rubble. He zoomed back out, turned around, and walked to the front of the restaurant.
As they looked at the buildings across the road, a creature crawled into view from the right, climbing above each window before climbing in through the window of a bike store. The camera operator moved back a bit. A minute later, a military jeep pulled up in front of the building the creature climbed into. Three soldiers climbed out and entered the store through its shattered front window.
As the camera operator zoomed in on the building, the next song began to play. It began with a whistle melody then led into lyrics about not being worried. Another upbeat song that juxtaposed the seriousness of the situation, which unsettled me more so. Inaudible shouting echoed from inside the building. Gunshots followed. A moment later, two of the soldiers stepped out of the building, uniforms stained with blood. They stood around, talking into their radios. Then the video ended. A couple seconds of the next video, titled Incoming Creatures, played before I paused it. That video began on an elevated platform near a forest. I was done watching videos of the attacks, so I wasn't going to stick around for more.
I checked the time. 10:58 PM. I slid the phone into my pocket and walked out into the livingroom to see what the others were up to. They were discussing what the giants may want while the news played on the TV. A woman was talking about the destruction of Town Zero… Sharon. Footage was played of a colossal giant popping up just north of the town, then with two swoops, the giant smashed the town to dust and rubble. My heart sank. We're getting colossal giants here too? I mean, of course we are. They're not just going to reserve certain things for certain areas. Clearly they will attack just about anywhere, right?
William asked me to help him get something from the shed out back. I told him I'll go out and wait for him there. I got my shoes on and stepped outside into the warm dark night. There was an eerie calmness to it. Like nature hadn't been going nearly as insane as we humans have. I stepped around back and spotted the shed. As I stepped towards it, two colossal silhouettes formed in the sky some distance away. They contrasted the light polluted light orange glow. I don't want to under describe how massive they were. Not tall enough to reach above the clouds, but tall enough to make my chest drop to the point I thought I was about to have a heart attack. They moved in my direction, their silhouettes growing, obscuring the light orange glow of the sky.
Why here? Who's here that they want? Unless it really is me. They aren't going for some random people I don't know. This is an alternate reality in which they're coming after me. But that theory seemed to small minded. I wasn't possibly going to be in multiple places in the US, China, North Korea, Belgium… maybe they're also going for my relatives… but I don't know anybody who would ever be in North Korea of all places.
I thought about it as I sprinted for my life over the fence into the neighbors yard, then over the next fence, then over the next… I kept hopping fences until I made it to the corner of the town. It was just a field. Thumps shook the ground. Car alarms began going off. I fell to my knees due to the heavy vibration. I avoided looking to my left, at the giants' massive silhouettes. I stared at the ground and hoped for the best with the worst pit of dread I ever felt.
Loud booms and crashes blew out my ear drums. I never heard loud sounds like those so up close. I covered my ears, but the piercing sounds still hurt. The smashing lasted a couple minutes, getting quieter and quieter as the giants moved further away from me. My curiosity got the best of me and I glanced at the giants. They had to have been 500 meters tall or something. For some reason, not being able to see them was more dread inducing than being able to see them. A cloud of dust hit my face. I coughed like a motherfucker and walked forward, finding my way out of the choking smoke.
William and Jason…
I looked in the direction of Jason's house. It was too dark to see anything but some fires a couple houses away. Whatever was left of those houses anyway. The giants were still smashing their way through the town when I heard a fast plane. I looked up and saw a light flying towards the giants.
Fighter jets? Missiles?
The missile struck the giant in its midsection and exploded in a ball of fire. The giant continued smashing. It didn't move differently after the hit. It continued eliminating the town. Another explosion occurred near the head of the other giant and it was the same outcome. The attack continued on for another minute, with more explosions that didn't faze the giants. Maybe the missiles made a mark. It was too dark to see those marks if so. Finally, the crashes and booms stopped. The giants stood in one spot, not moving at all, then they vanished into thin air.
That was seriously screwed up. I almost died. I want out of this. Who in the multiverse would wish this on their worst enemy? The idea of possibly being crushed, gassed, blown up, thrown to your death… I walked back to Jason's house. It only took a couple of minutes. When I got back there, it was a pile of wood, broken up walls, unrecognizable rooms, scattered roof tiles, and bricks. I hurried around to the front. When I saw Jason's arm crushed under a pile of bricks and wires, I almost gagged. I looked away and stepped to where the front door was. William's hand laid beside a growing fire.
Where am I supposed to go? I'm a refugee now. I should check the news. Any news outlet that hasn't had its data center destroyed. I haven't heard of that happening but it has to have happened by now.
I pulled out my phone and opened CNN.
"Ontario, Canada is ground zero for the attacks. Everyone is still wondering why"
"WATCH: See Seattle explode in a ball of fire"
"The black chemical agent sprayed on multiple American towns and Chinese cities may not be of this world"
"Bomb shelters, caves… even sewers. Americans are desperate for safety, but some Americans claim all they need to do is stay armed and ready"
MILITARY: "Civilians shouldn't push their luck thinking standard rifles are enough to defend against Giants"
"Security camera footage shows Manila attack"
"Ukraine is free, but for how long?"
""I'm tired of living through history" The attacks from Gen Z's perspective"
It was always interesting to go into an alternate reality and look at the top news headlines. This time though… it's very serious, as I'm a full on victim of the wild stuff that's going on in the alternate reality. I sat down and read all the news articles I could. I read all the Reddit threads about every major development in this whole event. I also felt it was important enough to go back to that archive on and download all the footage posted there for archival, especially in the case I ever made it out of here. There was a ton of interesting things I saw in the various realities I traveled to over the years. If I get the device back, I can go back and download some footage from those realities. I could become an archivist or something. But it hit me that I was more likely to die than fulfill any dream I ever had.
At around 1 AM, I heard my name being called by a familiar deep voice.
"You were supposed to die!" he said. "How are you still alive!?"
"I saw them pop out of nowhere… so I ran like hell."
"Well now we're going to have to take you somewhere else."
"Why not shoot me?" I asked, frustrated. "Why not end my life right now?"
"True Nicole said you needed to be weighed down by the stuff going on in this reality," he said, resting his hand on his hip. "Either you are scared of the giants or you are killed by the giants."
I stood up, slid my phone into my pocket, and walked away. I didn't think I was going to make it far without confrontation. A couple homes down, a pain hit my neck. Before I could process it, I woke up in the trunk of a car. All I could hear was the news. All I could feel was the car bumping up and down. All I could see, other than the interior of the trunk of course, was a light morning sky. One right before the sun rose above the horizon.
"...still no word from British officials after the attacks on London and Cheltenham, England. Reports of giants being present in London and Cheltenham came out just after 4 this morning. The number of casualties is unknown, and the British Prime Minister is still missing…"
"She's awake."
"What's up fake Nicole?"
"Where are we?" I asked.
"Williamsport, Pennsylvania," alternate me said. "We're going to Washington DC."
"How do you know anything is going to happen there?"
"She never said anything would," Ian said.
"You said I was supposed to die," I said. "You knew the giants were going to strike the place I was in."
"I traveled to a reality where it was this timeline, but one month after the attacks began," alternate me said. "Then I copied a list of everything that happened in these attacks. I know what happens next."
I froze. They really did have this planned out, didn't they…
"Now, I want you to stop talking," alternate me said. "Don't breathe too loudly either. Also, if we catch you calling for help, I will stop on the side of the road, Ian will inject you with fire ants and Billy will inject you with steroids."
"To keep you awake and energized so you feel the pain more intensely and for a longer amount of time," she said.
"Yes," alternate me said. "And you can still go on the internet if you want."
I stared up at the blue morning sky, strangled by dread. I realized I had cold sweats all over me. I pulled out my phone and Googled some more Reddit threads. 20 minutes into reading comments, the news channel on the radio switched to a Pop music station. At first, I assumed alternate me changed the station, but when I went back to the Giant Attacks search results, they had all changed to results about some unrelated game.
My hopes went up. Could it be? A slip? I was ready to believe it, even if it was mostly to ease my anxiety. I went to CNN's website. To my relief, the headlines were about… normal topics. [Top news headlines on the day I post this story]
I don't know how long I'll be back in our reality. If I even am back here… I guess you will know if you see this update.
Alternate me is swearing. I think she caught on to what happened… Now she's turning the car around. I'll update again when I'm back.

2023.03.20 21:46 Shadowclaw170 [A4A] Just looking for an RP partner

Hey! You can call me Shadow, Shade, or Night. I'm a minor and would prefer that you be the same. EST is my timezone. I can write anywhere between 1-6 paragraphs or so, but I'll more likely match your style as we get going, though, I usually write around 2 paragraphs. I write in 3rd person. I'd prefer to RP on Discord, but if you prefer to stay here on Reddit, that works too.
I don't have any specific plots in mind, but I've been in the mood for something apocalypse, fantasy, a road trip, or something fandom specific, but I'm willing to hear any prompts that you may have in mind! We can talk about characters before or after picking a plot/setting, whichever works better. I have a few OCs that I can use, or I can make a new one. Usually I go off of whatever plot is picked or your character.

More specific plots, which I just thought of and will add to as I think of them:
- Character A has been living either in the middle of nowhere on some farm, or in a small town living their mostly boring and uneventful life. One day they get a knock on their door from character B, though. (They can be there for any reason, whether that be on the run form something, wandered a bit too far and just got lost, or perhaps a new neighbor in town - anything!)
- Character A and B were childhood friends who stopped talking for a while for whatever reason. One day, to relive some of the nostalgia, A decides to go to one of their favorite locations as a child - perhaps it has changed over time, perhaps it's just older - and to their surprise, they find B there.

Some fandoms I'll roleplay:
- Portal
- Danganronpa
- Stardew Valley
- Probably some others that I've forgotten about, but mainly those
If you choose a fandom one, I'll likely have some more specific plot ideas in mind. With RPs set in cannon universes, I usually prefer cannon x cannon, but I'm okay with having just OCs in the universe or OC x cannon, or it doesn't have to be romantic at all.

Feel free to message me with a brief introduction if you're interested!

2023.03.20 21:42 Clear-Week-440 Anyone who lives/is currently in central coast in California, please read this

Or anyone who may be unsure of the treatment they deserve if going to the emergency room in a crisis. This is a throwaway account due to disclosing this level of location information - I’m not a weird random troll or anything and I’m active in this community on my main. I really care about this community so much and it has helped massively. Might delete this but feeling compelled to share right now. With that in mind:
Please, please, if you reside or are visiting the California central coast and you’re having a mental health crisis where you need to go to a hospital to get help and be safe, DO NOT GO to Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (CHOMP). I can best describe what happened here by sharing the feedback I sent to the hospital in response to their “how was your stay?” follow-up email:
“I’m not attempting to be dramatic when I say that this was one of the worst experiences of my life. I’m writing this in efforts to be completely honest in hopes to advocate for anyone else who comes here in a similar state that I was in. I came here experiencing a non-violent mental health crisis needing help and, ideally, a little kindness. I spent two and a half days alone on a gurney in an empty room, mostly ignored and barely checked in with, not provided with anything to wash myself with, only given one small Dixie cup of water only when I asked for it, and given a portable toilet without providing toilet paper. The staff were either rude when explaining information or seemingly completely oblivious. Every time I asked for clarification I was told they would “check on it” and then 2-3 hours would pass without an answer. I understand that an ER is a very busy and often chaotic place by its nature, given the volume and spectrum of people who require urgent care. I am not delusional enough to expect a ritzy, cushioned time in an ER, but one would hope to expect the bare minimum. I would only consider providing feedback on my experience in a situation like this if it reached a level of extremes, which I believe is relevant here. In full disclosure, at the peak of my emotional distress I did shout at a staff member, which I immediately apologized for and deeply regret - but aside from a moment of verbally expressing despair over my treatment, I was not an aggressive patient. While my situation was due to a mental health crisis, I was 100% coherent enough to recognize the complete lack of warmth and competence. I have seen animals treated better than the way I was treated here.”
I read this to my therapist because I was feeling insecure about seeming spoiled or some shit because my self-worth is low enough to truly wonder. My therapist was deeply disturbed and said that knowing this, she will never ever suggest to any of her patients to go there. Idk, I know this sub has people from all over the place but on the off chance it applies to you, or if you’re insecure about the treatment and respect you rightfully deserve in a hospital setting, I wanted to share my experience. Literally go anywhere but this place. I would have been better off sitting in a gutter hyperventilating for two days rather than the experience I had here.
You deserve kindness and respect, always, no matter what. You matter. If you receive treatment like this, please know you deserve better. Sending love💚

2023.03.20 21:41 ED_m22 25 [M4F] anyone from #Czech Republic

Hi, simple question. Is there anyone from CZ? I miss someone in my life right now so I ask why not to try to find this person here.
About me: 25, CZ(obviously 😀), full time job, normal hobbies (frome movies, books, music to sport nature etc.), 192 cm, 80 kg, ginger. It's hard to write everything in one post, you must ask in PM to get to know me better :).
You: close to my age (20-30 is absolutely fine, maybe even outside of this range a little), living ideally in Czechia, or maybe in central europe, looking for friendship->relationship. There's obviously much more(common interests, simmilar opinions, simmilar sense of humour, physical attraction etc., that's all important but it needs time).
What kind of interaction would be best to my opinion? Chat, later calls and later meeting somewher. How long from frist message to meeting irl? It depends, we must find out 😀
Please, include age, location, brief introduction and last movie you watched or book you read or game you played or music you discovered or sth simmilar. And most important, write at least 3 sentences. Bye

2023.03.20 21:24 Sharinganprincess91 [F4M] Fandom Roleplay. Looking for more partners.

Side note: I've added a password, so read carefully. If you message me WITHOUT the password, your messages are automatically IGNORED. tired of getting hit up with people who don't read 😒. It's ridiculous cause I've ignored 5+ chats cause none of them contained the password. Things are written for a reason.
Facts about me:
1: if you don't like 50/50 mixture of sex scenes and story, don't bother hopping into my inbox. I'm fine with sex scenes, but when it's constantly back to back, the roleplay itself gets boring.
2: Be literate. No one liners. I like to's annoying when I send a 2-3 paragraph response and I get 3 I am not accepting people who are just starting out! If you aren't experienced in writing or roleplaying, kindly stay out of my inbox.
3: Be okay with playing canon characters. I'm mainly doing fandom roleplays right now and it's going to be Canon x my oc. No, I'm not doing double ups. Do not even ask, because the answer will be no every time. I do not give a shit if you think that makes me 'lazy' or 'selfish', if you've got a problem, you can simply ignore or block me. Commenting on my post to bitch and whine about me not doubling up will only result in me blocking you. The ONLY time I'll double up, and if I'm confident enough, I'll only do female characters. I suck at males. Got a problem? Not my issue. Block and move on.
4: Roleplay in third person. I can't and won't adapt to first. Don't even bring up the idea of you playing first person and me playing third. Believe it or not, I've been asked this twice and that is just a hell no for me. The only time I do first, is when I'm writing into my book.
5: if you don't know how to share ideas, then don't bother messaging me. I'm tired of carrying the story when the other person doesn't help. If you've got ideas, then PLEASE speak up! Your opinion on the roleplay matters too! I'm an easy going person, and easy to get along with (dispite my rules).
6: DO NOT control my character. I control what she says, does, hears, sees, ect. I don't control yours, so don't control mine. HOWEVER, if it's highly necessary and needed, then run it by me first and ask me. Just leave me some wiggle room so I can make a decent response. Failure to comply by this rule, results in immediate drop of the rp.
End Note:
Yes, I've updated my rules just a tad. I do not care if it makes me sound mean or rude, because I'm neither of these things. I'm just tired of putting these rules down for a specific reason and they go ignored because I can tell when someone hasn't read them, and lied about it. I'm just trying to get my point across and roleplay. I'm a very easy going person who loves to make friends on the side (which I've somewhat given up on making friends...only a selective few have actually gained my friendship).
Do not hop into my inbox with a simple 'hey' 'hi' 'sup', etc and for God's sake, don't message me with a 'rp?'and proceed me to flash me with your talliwhacker. I promise you, you'll get your feelings hurt and I'll be here laughing at ya 😂. Nobody wants a peen on their screen. Do not send me an image of your one eyed noodle. Thank you. The password is pineapple.

2023.03.20 21:19 miarrial Oil falls to three-month low on inflation worries, U.S. bank shutdowns

NEW YORK, March 14 (Reuters) - Oil prices dropped over 4% to a three-month low on Tuesday after a U.S. inflation report and the recent U.S. bank failures sparked fears of a fresh financial crisis that could reduce future oil demand.
Oil pump jacks are seen at the Vaca Muerta shale oil and gas deposit in the Patagonian province of Neuquen, Argentina, January 21, 2019
Brent futures fell $3.32, or 4.1%, to settle at $77.45 a barrel, while U.S. West Texas Intermediate (WTI) crude fell $3.47, or 4.6%, to settle at $71.33.
They were the lowest closes for both benchmarks since Dec. 9 and their biggest one-day percentage declines since early January. In addition, both contracts fell into technically oversold territory for the first time in weeks.
Shockwaves from Silicon Valley Bank's collapse triggered big moves in bank shares as investors fretted over the financial health of some lenders, in spite of assurances from U.S. President Joe Biden and other global policymakers.
"The market is either anticipating a recession in the future or it could be that one or more funds had to raise cash and reduce the risk on their books because they are concerned about liquidity after the bank failures," said Phil Flynn, an analyst at Price Futures Group. He has not heard of any fund in trouble.
U.S. consumer prices increased solidly in February as Americans faced persistently higher costs for rents and food, posing a dilemma for the U.S. Federal Reserve whose fight against inflation has been complicated by the collapse of two regional banks.
"Crude prices are falling after a mostly in-line inflation report sealed the deal for at least one more Fed rate hike," said Edward Moya, senior market analyst at data and analytics firm OANDA.
Data showed the U.S. Consumer Price Index (CPI) rose 0.4% in February from 0.5% in January. That slight slowdown in consumer price growth prompted investors to price in a smaller rate hike by the Fed in March.
The Fed is now seen raising its benchmark rate by just a quarter of a percentage point next week, down from a previously expected 50-basis points, and delivering another hike of the same size in May. The Fed's next two-day meeting starts next Tuesday.
"The Fed’s tightening work is not done just yet and the chances are growing that they will send the economy into a mild recession, and risks remain that it could be a severe one," OANDA's Moya said.
The U.S. central bank uses higher interest rates to curb inflation. But those higher rates increase consumer borrowing costs, which can slow the economy and reduce demand for oil.
Tuesday's crude price decline also came ahead of U.S. data expected to show energy firms added about 1.2 million barrels of oil to crude stockpiles during the week ended March 10.
The American Petroleum Institute (API), an industry group, will publish its inventory data at 4:30 p.m. EDT on Tuesday and the U.S. Energy Information Administration at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday.
Limiting crude's price decline - at least earlier in the day - was a monthly report from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) projecting higher oil demand in China, the world's biggest oil importer, in 2023.
Chinese consumers, unshackled from COVID-19 restrictions, are returning to hotels, restaurants and some shops, but they are choosy about what they buy, disappointing hopes for an immediate post-pandemic splurge.
OPEC, however, left unchanged its forecast for world oil demand to increase by 2.32 million barrels per day, or 2.3%, in 2023.
The International Energy Agency (IEA) will publish its monthly report on Wednesday. IEA/S
