2023.06.07 14:03 Afraid-Two1427 He told me (unprompted) the he does/have struggle(d) with porn. Red flag?
It is about 4 months after I began dating my boyfriend and he is has only been good to me, which in my life feels rather strange. We do not do intimate activities together as we are both fairly concervative christians and want to wait for marriage (if we do end up there) before we do that kind of thing together.
Around one month into dating he told me he either struggles or has struggled with porn. This was unprompted and something he said as we walked together after an event. At the time I kinda sighed in relief that he wasn't this perfect paragon that I thought he was, to see he has flaws like I have.
The thing is, I feel I cannot judge him. While I do not watch porn and the only history I have is textual sexting with a long distance boyfriend, whereof I ended said relationship because I grew stronger in faith and saw my ways weren't good + our goals and values didn't align. I also looked at picture of male torsos earlier, so I suppose I was kinda a affected by that world like 4 years ago. I do not any longer watch or read much explicit stuff (voluntarily at least), but I am still very much affected by a "colourful" fantasy and sometimes the physique of my boyfriend (he's as sexy as he is kind) overshadows what I see of his soul (and when that happends, I am reduced to giggles). I still masturbate
I really do not feel I can judge him when our issues are so related
Maybe a month ago, we were at a rather spiritual led sermon (we go to several different churches) and we had both asked people to pray for us induvidually. Yet one of the lead singers told that some people had more things they needed to pray about and if we needed to be prayed for, we should ask those nearby to pray for us. And we both prayed to be released from our issues. For him the porn and for me the masturbation. And he broke down crying afterwards (the only time I've seen him cry)
This is really all I know about the issue. His addiction has in no way been visible other than what he has told me and it does seem he really wanna quit it. I do not know much about what he watched and about what kind
Btw, I am almost always the one who initiates and/or asks for physical touch. Like kissing and hugs. And he is sometimes a bit of a bad texter and he isn't the most passionate and he often worries a lot for the future
Is this a red flag? I love him dearly and he is so kind to me

2023.06.07 14:02 accessiblehorror Tips for downsizing my portfolio?
When I first starting investing I followed my friend’s M1 pie for inspiration and it was a great jumping off point for getting set up for my portfolio. However, they are much more into watching individual stocks than I am and over time I’ve let my portfolio idle. I’m now trying to regain control and at least focus it towards my goal of dividend investing for FIRE. The portfolio consists of 65 holdings of both ETFs and individual stocks with some overlap. My questions are as follows:
- I’m aiming to cut holdings down to approximately 20 so that I can keep more focus. SCHD, VYM, DGRO, and SPYG are the ETFs I’m planning to keep. The rest would be individual stocks that I have interest in and believe will experience growth.
- From my understanding, downsizing means selling and that will trigger a taxable event; am I shooting myself in the foot by doing so? The peace of mind of having a manageable portfolio seems worth it but is there a good way to estimate how much in taxes I’d have to pay for selling? I’ve had all holdings for multiple years if that changes any tax information.

2023.06.07 14:02 No_Emergency_2036 Passed second time- AMA
I am a below average test taker who had low scores on all my previous steps, already busy with residency and my family. My preparation was interrupted so many times by family issues.
First attempt: 196, I was devastated . Felt good after the exam and I was expecting to pass. I did recheck and it didn’t show any difference.
What I did differently:
1- Don’t underestimate the exam, it’s doable but definitely not easy. One of my mistakes that I listened to people who aaid they just did 40% of uw and just showed up to the test , found out later that people sometimes dishonest and also some people are just different from others.
2- CCS practice. Don’t prepare for the exam without Crush CCS cases . They have a great tool for the lists. My first attempt I used UW and CCSCASES.COM without any other sources. Second time I used the lists provided in the book and I created my own list accordingly. I used my breaks to write down the lists before CCS and I ended up scoring high despite getting 2 negative outcomes on patients.
NB: My first attempt all my cases ended up early and I thought I killed it but no! It’s so easy to lose points here and there if your lists are not prepared appropriately.
3- ANKIIIIIII - this time I focused on anki for my weak areas( psych and step1 topics) I used Dorian
4- Divine 💜 I got 2-3 questions easy points just by listening to his podcast
5- For the folks who didn’t make it, it’s ok. I was devastated and disappointed. I lost my self confidence and doubted myself. Till last night, I was still having flashbacks from the test and I was prepared for the worst case scenarios.
My USWA1 was 196 3 weeks before the test and I ended up with 21X Elhamdulillah!!
So peace out ✌🏼 Good luck with your Journey and keep me in your prayers

2023.06.07 14:02 SonataTaki_86032 Fantasy RP Partners Wanted! (F4M or playing M)
My name is Iris Scarlett, the daughter of a wealthy man named Robert Scarlett. I'm also in a lycan pack and a very big one at that . After the death of my mother her life seemed rather meaningless. As I grew up I became more of a maid for the house than anything. My father was drunk and reckless after my mother passed. However one day he got an invitation along with his family members to go to the ball being held at the Alphas palace.My father saw this as an opportunity for his daughter or myself to find my mate. Recently that's all he could talk about was me marrying into a rich family so he could use their money too and remain rich. Yeah sounds like an arse right? Anyway I know this would change my life for the better by going especially because I got to wear my mothers favorite gown that night.
Once at the palace I felt off looking around. I was thinking of sneaking off after the king and his new fiancee walked in. However, I froze when I saw him and we locked eyes. Was this feeling? Why am I panicking? It felt like my heart was about to beat out of my chest. Before long everything seemed to blur as I raced out of the ball room and down the steps as I ran I could hear a ferocious roar. Once I was at the bottom of the steps I seemed to black out for a moment as I was tackled to the ground once I regained consciousness I saw the king hovering over me and straddling my waist. I gulp as he begins to speak. His eyes seemed to pierce right into my soul. I didn't know how to feel as people also started to flood into the room to see the commotion.
Hey sonata here if you like this plot please leave any flower emoji ! I look forward to roleplaying with you and expect to have at least a partner that can be detailed and not to all immediately nsfw. I am 22 years old and have been roleplaying for 12 years now. My time zone is est, but I'm a night shift worker so I'm mostly up at night. If this seems a bit familiar it is because I was inspired by a story called the lycan’s queen. Don't remember where I read it but I liked it alot and changed a few things for my own plot.

2023.06.07 14:01 EdMarCarSe "Great Anti-Imperialist Revolutionary Cause of Asian, African and Latin American Peoples Is Invincible", The Treatise published on the cccasion of the first anniversary of the death of Che Guevara in battle in the Eighth Issue of Tricontinental - by Kim Il Sung, October 8 of 1968.
It is nearly a year now since Comrade Ernesto Che Guevara, an indomitable revolutionary fighter and a true internationalist champion bom of the Latin American people, died a heroic death on the battlefield of Bolivia. The Korean people, together with the revolutionary peoples throughout the world, are commemorating the first anniversary of the passing away of Comrade Che Guevara, with a burning hatred for the enemy and in deep grief.
Che Guevara took the path of the sacred struggle to bring freedom and liberation to the peoples, holding aloft the banner of anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle early in his youthhood, and devoted his whole life to the revolutionary cause of the oppressed peoples.
Over a long period up to now since the curtain rose upon the prelude to the bloodstained history of modern bourgeoisie, in which the exploitation camouflaged by medieval religious and political illusions was replaced by a naked, shameless, direct and cruel one and man's dignity turned into an exchange value, numerous Communists and revolutionary fighters on the globe have shed their blood and laid down their lives in the midst of the revolutionary tempest to sweep away all that is obsolete and corrupt and reorganize the whole structure of society in a revolutionary way, to overthrow the upper strata of that cursed old society and prepare the cradle of free and happy, new society. Che Guevara dedicated his precious life to this sacred struggle and thus became an honourable member of the ranks of world revolutionary martyrs.
Che Guevara was an indefatigable revolutionary who was tireless in struggle and a true internationalist champion who was completely free from narrow nationalist sentiments. Throughout his life he showed a fine example of a steadfast revolutionary fighter and real internationalist.
Along with the Cuban revolutionaries led by Comrade Fidel Castro, Che Guevara unfolded a heroic armed struggle, thereby contributing greatly to crushing U.S. imperialism and the dictatorial regime of Batista, its lackey, and attaining the triumph of the Cuban Revolution. In 1965 Che Guevara, burning with revolutionary zeal, left the triumphant land of Cuba to move the arena of his struggle to a new outpost where manifold difficulties and stern trials awaited him. Everywhere he went in Latin America, he organized and mobilized the masses of the people to armed struggles against U.S. imperialism and its minions and fought bravely to the last moment of his life in the forefront.
The revolutionary activities of Che Guevara made a tremendous contribution to further consolidating the triumph of the Cuban Revolution and stepping up the advancement of the Latin American revolution as a whole.
The triumph of the Cuban Revolution is the first victory of the socialist revolution in Latin America and a continuation of the Great October Revolution in Latin America. With the Cuban Revolution emerging victorious, the Red banner of socialism now flies high over Latin America which was regarded as a hereditary estate of U.S. imperialism only until recently, and the socialist camp has extended to the Western Hemisphere and grown in strength a great deal. Today the Republic of Cuba which marches on firmly in the forefront of the Latin American revolution is the lighthouse of hope for the fighting Latin American peoples and throws the rays of victory on the road of their struggle. The triumph of the Cuban Revolution shook the colonial system of the U.S. imperialists to its very foundation in the Western Hemisphere and has thrown the whole Latin America into a revolutionary tempest, forcefully arousing the peoples in this area to the sacred struggle for independence and freedom. The triumph of the Cuban Revolution signified, indeed, the beginning of the disintegration of the U.S. imperialist system of colonial rule in Latin America, the stern judgment on U.S. imperialism which had exploited and oppressed the peoples in this area for a long period and its condemnation to ruin.
Consolidation of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution is not only an important problem which decides the life and death, the rise and fall of the Cuban people but also a key problem which sways the destinies of the general development of the Latin American revolution.
Revolution begins with brilliant successes in one country but undergoes a considerable period of painful throes. The countries whose proletariat has grasped power in the encirclement of international capitalism are not free from the danger of imperialist aggression and restoration of capitalism during the entire historical period of revolutionary transition from capitalism to socialism. The overthrown exploiting classes always attempt to recover their lost positions and foreign imperialists incessantly engage in armed invasion and intrigues and manoeuvres for political and ideological subversion.
The U.S. imperialists and the reactionaries of Latin America deeply hate and fear the very existence of the Republic of Cuba and are manoeuvring stubbornly and maliciously to stifle it. They are working hard to get rid of the Cuban Revolution so as to drive out the "spectre" of Communism haunting the Western Hemisphere and check the liberation struggle of the peoples which envelops Latin America like a prairie fire. While scheming to strangle Cuba by directly mobilizing then- armed forces, the U.S. imperialists are instigating the reactionary Latin American regimes of dictatorship under their domination and subjugation to bring political and economic pressure to bear upon Cuba in order to suffocate her with the policy of blockade.
For the attainment of the ultimate victory of the revolution, the peoples who have gained power in the encirclement of international capital, while reinforcing their own internal forces in every way, should receive solid support from other detachments of the world socialist revolution and should receive broad international assistance from the working classes of all lands and the oppressed peoples of the whole world. In other words, revolutions should take place consecutively in the majority of countries of the world, in several adjacent countries at the least, to replace imperialist encirclement with socialist encirclement, the barriers of imperialism that surround a socialist country should be torn down to open the path of turning the dictatorship of the proletariat into a world-wide system and an end should be put to the isolation of the socialist fortress of one country in the encirclement to form the strong ties of militant solidarity of the international working classes and the oppressed peoples of the world. Only then will it be possible to prevent completely armed intervention by the imperialists and their attempt to restore capitalism, and say that the ultimate victory of socialism has been secured.
As the forces of capital are international, so the liberation struggle of the peoples is an international movement. The revolutionary movements in individual countries are national movements, and constitute part of the world revolution at the same time. The revolutionary struggles of the peoples in all countries have the relationship of supporting and complementing each other and join together in one stream of world revolution. The revolution which has emerged victorious should assist the revolutions of those countries which are not yet triumphant with its experiences and examples and render active support to the liberation struggle of the world's peoples with its political, economic and military power, while the peoples in the countries which have not yet won the revolutions should struggle more actively to defend the victorious revolutions of other countries against the imperialist policy of strangulation and hasten victory for their own revolutions. This is the law of the development of the world revolutionary movement and the excellent tradition already formed in the course of the people's liberation struggle.
The Cuban Revolution is an organic part of the world revolution and, particularly, constitutes the decisive link in the chain of the revolution in Latin America. To defend the Cuban Revolution and to consolidate and follow up its victories is not only the duty of the Cuban people but also the internationalist obligation of the oppressed peoples of Latin America and all the revolutionary peoples of the world. Just as the defence of the gains of the October Revolution in Russia which made the first breach in the world capitalist system was an important question decisive of the fate of the development of the world revolution, so the defence of the gains of the Cuban Revolution which made the first breach in the colonial system of U.S. imperialism in Latin America is an important question decisive of the fate of the Latin American revolution.
It is of great importance for the defence of the Cuban Revolution to advance the revolutionary movement in those Latin American countries neighbouring on Cuba. If the fierce flames of revolution flare up in many countries of Latin America where U.S. imperialism sets foot, the force of U.S. imperialism will be dispersed and sapped as much and the attempts of the U.S. imperialists and their lackeys to strangle Cuba by concentrated force will inevitably fall through. Further, if the revolution emerges victorious in some other Latin American countries, Cuba will get out of the encircling ring of imperialism with which she is confronted on all sides, there will be opened up a favourable phase in the revolutions of Cuba and Latin America, and the world revolution will be stepped up still more.
For a revolution to take place, the subjective and objective situation should be created for it. The revolution in each country should be carried out to suit the specific realities, in which the objective revolutionary situation is created. This, however, by no means signifies that the revolution can develop or ripen of itself. The revolution can always be advanced and brought to maturity only through an active and hard struggle of the revolutionaries. If an active struggle is neglected, only waiting for a favourable situation to arise by reason of the arduousness of the revolution, revolutionary forces cannot be fostered. Revolutionary forces cannot be prepared spontaneously without any struggle, they can be fostered and strengthened only through a hard struggle. If preparations are not made to meet the decisive hour of the revolution by preserving the revolutionary forces against the enemy's suppression and, at the same time, constantly accumulating and building them up through a positive struggle, it will be impossible to win victory in the revolution even when the objective situation has been created. To turn away from the revolution on the pretext of avoiding sacrifices is in fact tantamount to forcing the people to remain in lifelong slavery to capital, forcing them to tolerate for ever the cruel exploitation and oppression, unbearable maltreatment and humiliation, enormous sufferings and sacrifices. In general the acute pain experienced at a revolutionary turning-point is always much easier to endure than the chronic pain caused by the ulcers of old society. The social revolution cannot be achieved as easily as proceeding along a royal road in full daylight, nor can it progress as smoothly as a boat sailing before the wind. On the path of revolution, there may be rough thorny bushes and turns and twists, and there may be temporary setbacks and partial sacrifices. To flinch before difficulties and to hesitate in the revolution for fear of sacrifices is not the attitude befitting a revolutionary.
It is the task for the revolutionaries of each country to lay down a scientifically-motivated, careful way of struggle on the basis of a correct assessment of the internal and external situation and a proper calculation of the balance of forces between friend and foe, accumulate and build up the revolutionary forces by rearing the nuclear elements and awakening the masses of the people in the trying crucible of the revolution, unfolding an active struggle and yet going around the snags and avoiding unnecessary sacrifices at ordinary times, and make full preparations to meet the great revolutionary event. And once the revolutionary situation is created, they should not miss the opportunity to rise without delay in a showdown to shatter the reactionary regime.
The forms and methods of revolutionary struggle, too, are determined not by the wishes of individuals, but on all accounts by the subjective and objective situation created and the resistance of the reactionary ruling classes. The revolutionaries should stand prepared for all forms of struggle, and should effectively advance the revolutionary movement by properly combining various forms and methods of struggle such as political and economic struggles, violent and nonviolent struggles, legal and illegal struggles.
Counter-revolutionary violence is an indispensable means of rule for all exploiting classes. Human history not yet knows an instance of any ruling class submissively turning over its supremacy, or an instance of any reactionary class meekly waiving its power without resorting to counter-revolutionary violence. In particular, the imperialists cling ever more desperately to violent means to maintain their rule as they approach nearer to their doom. The imperialists, while suppressing the peoples of their own countries, check all the revolutionary advance of the oppressed nations in a sanguinary way with their military forces for aggression and plunder against other countries.
In these conditions, the liberation struggle of the oppressed peoples cannot emerge victorious without using revolutionary violence to crush foreign imperialists and overthrow the reactionary dictatorial machinery of the exploiting classes at home that work hand in glove with them. It is imperative to meet violence with violence and crush counter-revolutionary armed forces with revolutionary armed forces. The revolutionary flames now raging furiously in Latin America are the natural outcome of the revolutionary situation created in this area.
The absolute majority of the Latin American countries have been placed under the complete domination and bondage of U.S. imperialism. Pro-U.S. dictatorships have been established in many Latin American countries and the economy of these countries has been turned completely into an appendage to the U.S. monopolies. The U.S. imperialists' policy of aggression and plunder towards Latin America constitutes the major fetters impeding social progress in this area, and has plunged its peoples in unbearable mishaps and distress. The U.S. imperialists and the pro-U.S. dictatorships in Latin America extensively set up various repressive apparatuses including the army and police and suppress all forms of revolutionary advance of the people in a most brutal way.
It is obvious that unless the ill-clad and hungry, oppressed and humiliated people in Latin America bravely rise in arms in the struggle against the oppressors, they cannot attain freedom and liberation.
It is quite justifiable and admirable that under the banner of proletarian internationalism, under the banner of anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle, Che Guevara, together with Latin American revolutionaries, unfolded an active, heroic revolutionary struggle in various Latin American countries with arms in his hands in defiance of sacrifice in order to defend the Cuban Revolution and hasten the day of liberation for the oppressed peoples in this area. The revolutionary peoples of the whole world express deep sympathy with the brave act of Che Guevara who waged a heroic armed struggle together with Latin American revolutionaries. The brilliant example of Che Guevara is a paragon not only for the Latin American peoples in their revolutionary struggle but for the Asian and African peoples in their liberation struggle, and inspires them to heroic exploits.
Che .Guevara is not with us now. But the blood he shed will never be wasted. His name and the everlasting revolutionary exploits he performed will go down for ever in the history of liberation of mankind and his lofty revolutionary spirit will be immortal. There will appear thousands of, tens of thousands of Che Guevaras on the scene of decisive battle in the revolutionary struggle in Asia, Africa and Latin America, and the revolutionary cause which he left unaccomplished will surely be achieved by the struggle of the Latin American revolutionaries and the revolutionary peoples the world over.
Today Asia, Africa and Latin America have become the most fierce anti-imperialist front. Imperialism has met with the strong resistance of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples and suffered the heaviest blows from them. Nevertheless, imperialism is desperately trying to maintain its old footing and regain its lost positions in those areas.
The cause of liberation of the peoples in Asia, Africa and Latin America has not been completed. So long as imperialism exists on the globe and oppresses and plunders the people, the people cannot leave off the anti-imperialist struggle even a moment. The struggle must continue till all shades of colonialism are wiped off the face of the earth once and for all, till all the oppressed and humiliated nations build their independent states and achieve social progress and national- prosperity.
Imperialism will never give up its rule over colonial and dependent countries before it is kicked out. It is in the nature of imperialism to perpetrate aggression and plunder. If there ever is imperialism which is not aggressive, it is no longer imperialism. Imperialism will not change its aggressive nature before it dies. That is why one should dispel all illusions about imperialism and fight it out. Only when a. principled stand is maintained against imperialism and a staunch anti-imperialist struggle intensified, can the oppressed nations win freedom and independence and the liberated peoples check imperialist aggression, consolidate national independence and achieve prosperity for their countries and nations.
U.S. imperialism is the most barbarous and most heinous imperialism of modern times, and it is the chieftain of world imperialism. It is not the Asian and Latin American countries or the African countries alone that have their sovereignty and territories infringed upon by U.S. imperialism or are under the menace of U.S. imperialist aggression. There is no place on the earth to which U.S. imperialism has not stretched out its tentacles of aggression, and where U.S. imperialism sets foot the people always shed blood. The U.S. imperialists pursue the invariable aim to put the whole world under their control. It is to realize this aim that the U.S. imperialists incessantly perpetrate armed invasion and subversive activities against the socialist and newly-independent countries, and brutally suppress the liberation struggle of the peoples of Asia, Africa and Latin America. This wild aggressive design of U.S. imperialism must be frustrated decisively. It is clear that world peace cannot be safeguarded, nor can national liberation and independence or the victory of democracy and socialism be achieved, apart from the struggle against U.S. imperialism. To fight U.S. imperialism is the inescapable common duty and the first and foremost revolutionary task for all the peoples of the world.
For the successful defeat of U.S. imperialism, it is necessary to penetrate into its world strategy thoroughly.
The basic strategy of U.S. imperialism for world aggression at the present stage is to destroy by force of arms the small and divided revolutionary socialist countries and newly- independent countries one by one, while refraining from worsening its relations with big powers and shunning confrontation with them as far as possible and to intensify ideological and political offensive against, and subvert from within, those countries which are weak ideologically and not willing to make revolution but spread illusion about imperialism among the people clamouring only for unprincipled coexistence with imperialism, and desire to live on good terms with imperialism.
On the basis of this world strategy, the U.S. imperialists are increasing their armaments extensively and further reinforcing their military bases and aggressive military alliances to attack the socialist and the progressive countries. The U.S. imperialists have openly embarked on "local war" and "special war" in Viet Nam and some other places, while preparing total war and nuclear war on a large scale.
Simultaneously with this, the U.S. imperialists resort to a new form of cold war to encourage "liberalization" and "democratic development" in certain countries, while running wild to bribe and make a cat's-paw of the cowards within the ranks of the working-class movement who are afraid of revolution. They clamour for the "most favoured nation" treatment and the expansion of the "East-West contact and interchange" and, with this as a means, seek to infiltrate their reactionary ideology and culture to degrade the peoples ideologically, hamper economic development and thus undermine those countries from within. The imperialists are carrying out sabotage and subversive intrigues to tear the newly- independent states away from the anti-imperialist front one by one. While resorting to force overtly, they penetrate into the newly-independent countries with "aid" as a bait and meddle in their internal affairs. The U.S. imperialists whip together the right-wing reactionaries and pit them against the progressive forces, and seek to sway certain newly-independent countries to the road of counter-revolution.
Namely, wielding an olive branch in one hand and arrows in the other, the U.S. imperialists manoeuvre to swallow up the revolutionary countries one by one through armed aggression and subvert the ideologically weak countries through ideological and cultural aggression, combining nuclear blackmail with "peaceful penetration" and repression with appeasement and deception.
The peoples of the whole world should maintain sharpest vigilance against such intrigues and manoeuvres by U.S. imperialism and should be fully prepared to counter enemy's possible aggression of all forms.
In order to develop the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle vigorously, it is important to cement to the maximum the militant unity of all areas, all countries, all parties, all people and all forces opposing imperialism.
The revolutionary struggles of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples go on closely linked with each other for the community of their desires and aspirations. When Latin America groans under imperialist yoke, the Asian and African peoples cannot live in peace and when U.S. imperialism collapses in the Asian and African areas, a favourable phase will be created for the national-liberation movement of the Latin American peoples, too. The militant unity and close ties of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples will multiply the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. revolutionary forces several times, scores of times and will become an invincible force which can frustrate successfully the aggression of the imperialists and the united front of international reaction. Therefore, the peoples in all regions where U.S. imperialism is entrenched should pool their strength and strike it hard.
In Asia, Africa and Latin America there are socialist and neutral countries, and big and small countries. All these countries except the puppet regimes of the imperialists and their satellite states constitute anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. forces. Despite the differences of state socio-political systems, political views and religious beliefs, the peoples of the countries in these areas, as the oppressed nations who were suppressed and exploited by the imperialists and colonialists, have the common goal and aspiration to achieve national independence and national prosperity against imperialism and old and new colonialism. The differences of state socio-political systems, political views or religious beliefs can by no means be an obstacle in the way of joint struggle against U.S. imperialism. All countries should form an anti-imperialist united front and take anti-U.S. joint action to crush the common enemy and attain the common goal.
True, there may be various categories of people among those who oppose imperialism. Some may be active against imperialism, others may vacillate in the anti-imperialist struggle, and still others may join in the anti-imperialist struggle reluctantly under the pressure from their own people and the peoples of the world. But, whatever their motives, it is necessary to enlist all these forces except the henchmen of imperialism in the anti-U.S. joint struggle. If more forces, though inconsistent and unsteady, are drawn into the anti-U.S. joint struggle to isolate U.S. imperialism to the largest possible extent and deal blows to it by joint action, that will be a good thing and by no means a bad thing. Those who avoid the anti-imperialist struggle should be induced to turn out in the struggle against imperialism and those who are passive encouraged to be positive in the anti-imperialist struggle. To split the anti-U.S. united front or reject the anti-U.S. joint action will only bring a serious consequence of weakening the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle.
To fight down U.S. imperialism, all countries, big and small, should strike blows at U.S. imperialism. Particularly important here is that small countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America should give up flunkeyism tended to rely on big powers and take an active part in the anti-U.S. struggle. It is wrong to think that U.S. imperialism cannot be beaten down unless big countries fight it. It would be better certainly if big countries join small countries in fighting against U.S. imperialism. That is why small countries should endeavour to unite with big countries. But, this is by no means to say that no country, unless it is big, can fight and defeat U.S. imperialism. It is too obvious that one cannot make revolution if he depends on big countries and sits idle and that others cannot make revolution for him. Even small countries can defeat big enemy, once they establish Juche, unite the masses of the people and valiantly rise in battle despite sacrifice. This is a very plain truth of our times which has been borne out by actual life.
The experience of the Korean war proved this truth, and the triumph of the Cuban Revolution and the heroic war of resistance of the Vietnamese people against U.S. imperialism and for national salvation have proved this truth.
Moreover, when many countries, though small, pool their strength to fight imperialism, the peoples will be able to beat the enemy however strong he may be, with a decisively overwhelming force. The peoples of the countries making revolution should join efforts to tear left and right arms from U.S, imperialism, tear off its left and right legs and behead it eventually everywhere it stretches out its crooked hands of aggression. The U.S. imperialists are bluffing now, but when the revolutionary peoples of the world join in mutilating them, the U.S. imperialists will become impotent and bite the dust in the end. We small nations should unite and counter the strategy of U.S. imperialism to swallow us up one by one, each chopping off its head and limbs. Such, it can be said, is the strategy of struggle for small countries to defeat U.S. imperialism.
The Korean people have fought against the occupation of South Korea by the U.S. imperialists and for the unification of the country for more than 20 years. The Korean Revolution is part of the international revolutionary movement, and the revolutionary/struggle of the Korean people is developing amid the joint struggle of the peoples of the whole world for peace and democracy, for national independence and socialism. The Korean people are fighting to accomplish their cause of national liberation and, at the same time, are doing everything in their power to accelerate the advancement of the international revolutionary movement as a whole. Our people unite with all forces opposing U.S. imperialism and consistently support the peoples of all the countries in their struggle against U.S. imperialism. We regard it as an important factor in bringing victory to the Korean Revolution.
Imperialism is a moribund force whose days are numbered, whereas the liberation struggle of the peoples is a new force which aspires for the progress of mankind. There may be uncountable difficulties and obstacles and various turns and twists on the way of the liberation struggle of the peoples, but it is the inevitable law of the development of history that imperialism is doomed to ruin and the liberation struggle of the peoples is sure to be crowned with victory. Though the imperialists headed by U.S. imperialism are running amuck in an attempt to check the surging liberation struggle of the peoples, it is nothing but the death-bed tremor of those who are condemned to destruction. The more frenziedly the U.S. imperialists act, the more difficult their position becomes. U.S. imperialism is going downhill and confronted with the fate of a setting sun. The U.S. imperialists will definitely be forced out of Asia, Africa and Latin America by the liberation struggle of the peoples. The great anti-imperialist revolutionary cause of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples is invincible.

2023.06.07 14:01 wuthering---heights How to gently turn down a teenage guy?
Reposting because post got accidently deleted.
I'll keep it short and to the point. Asking this subreddit cuz i thought it was appropriate. I am a 30F and my friend and her teenage son (17M) has been staying with me for the past 2 years due to financial reasons. My friend has been in and out of jail for all her life and recently had a full on mental breakdown and had tried to take her own life and currently institutionalized. Father is not in the picture and never really has been.
I am close friends with both of them. Her son has leaned on me alot throughout her moms mental health issues. He's super strong despite all the set backs he had and im really proud of the man he's becoming.He is an amazing musician and actually semi famous on youtube for doing covers of popular songs( is 100k subscribers semi famous? Idk by YouTube standards). We often write/play music together and im really awed by some of the original material we created. Hundreds of songs in just 2 years. It's the only thing I really look forward to anymore. I can really see him becoming a well respected and well known musician one day. Any girl would be lucky to have him though I like not to think about that
Recently, he's started to have some feelings for me which are more on the romantic side. He hasnt said anything but you can kinda tell when someone likes you ( long gazes, laughing at stupid jokes, jealous looks when i talk about dates i go on with other guys etc ). I don't know how I feel about it but regardless the way society is; its probably not a road we want to venture down. I'm just planning ahead to when I will have to have the talk with him ( which I think would be pretty soon). He has self esteem and abandonment issues and so I have to be very careful what I say so I don't impact his confidence and mental health. Any tips on how to let a guy down easily?

2023.06.07 14:01 dreftzg [Daily News] Are These New Seiko Chronos Ugly Or Not?, Breguet Has Two New Military Chronographs, French Watchmaker Teams Up With French Carmaker For French Race and Dan Henry Is Back With New Colors And Same Price
Welcome back, it's Wednesday and I'll just come out and say it - that Seiko is ugly... Change my mind.
What's new 1/ Seiko Adds Four Completely New Chronographs To The Prospex Collection And Four Limited Editions To The Presage Craftsmanship Series
In 1999 Seiko launched a limited edition they called the Sportura Kinetic Chronograph
. It was a funky watch that used four subdials to display the time and chronograph functions. Just looking at it and you feel the angst of the end of the millennium and the cheesy futurism (not to be confused with neo futurism in architecture led by Norman Foster, Zaha Hadid and Santiago Calatrava) that permeated industrial design of the time - from Oakley glasses to Jnco jeans. There’s no easy way to say this, but it’s an ugly watch. I can appreciate the experiment. But come on.
However, Seiko believes that the four dial layout of the Kinetic was pleasing to the eye. That’s why they decided to recreate it in four new solar chronographs that they are adding to the Prospex collection, marking the company’s association with the World Athletics Championships to be held in Budapest, Hungary, in August. Officially called the Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Solar Chronograph, all four watches sport a new movement with the Seiko Caliber 8A50, a 1/100-second chronograph with a +/- 15-seconds per month precision rating.
The Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Solar Chronograph watch is 42mm-wide, 12.9mm-thick, and its lug-to-lug distance is 48.3mm. All four watches have the same case and bracelet design but in different executions and ever-so-slightly different prices and naming schemes. I could go on into detail about the dials and colors, but it’s all just a bit confusing. You can hop on over here if you would like to know more
Two of the models will be limited edition of 4,000 each and two will be regular production models. The Seiko Prospex Speedtimer Solar Chronograph watch prices range from 890 Euros to 970 Euros, and all four versions will be available from July 2023. Regular readers of the newsletter will know I keep things very chipper here and don’t pass judgement. But these new Seiko’s are just baffling to me. They look like those Diesel watches you buy at the mall. Am I wrong?
Thankfully, Seiko has another announcement for today. While they have shown these watches previously, they are now starting to sell these stunning Presage Craftsmanship Series watches
. Marking the 110th anniversary of its first wristwatch, the Laurel, Seiko is putting out two pairs of these limited edition pieces, with each featuring a dial made by a dedicated artisan or craft workshop through a traditional Japanese decorative technique — enamel, urushi lacquer, Arita porcelain, and shippō enamel. All four models boast a new case shape, a fresh dial aesthetic, and an in-house automatic movement. And they are now hitting the market.
And despite Seiko’s price increases for recent releases, these new editions seem to align with their predecessors. The white enamel SPB393 retails for €1,650, the brown urushi SPB395 for €2,000, the ivory Arita porcelain SPB397 for €2,000, and the blue shippō enamel SPB399 for €2,250. 2/ Breguet Gives Us Two Redesigned Variations Of The Classic Chronograph With The Type XX And Type 20
Just the other day I linked to a great article on Type 20
, the references issued by the French military in the 1950s. There were many brands who stepped up to produce these Type 20 watches, but the reference has stuck around to be synonymous with one brand in particular - Breguet. They have been making the Type 20 for years now, with occasional updates, but now Breguet is unveiling the new Type XX and Type 20 – a civilian and military-inspired take on the classic design - which is the biggest change to the line.
Despite at first glance looking like it’s two of the same watches with different dials, the Type 20 and Type XX are actually different watches. Both watches come in the same steel case that measures 42mm wide and 14.1mm thick with bidirectional steel bezels and matching lume pips. But this is pretty much where the similarities stop. The Type 20 has a military inspired dial with mint green lume and syringe hands, while the Type XX is a civilian version with a creamy yellow lume and alpha hands.
The Type 20 and Type XX both have a new self-winding movement, the Calibre 728 for the civilian version and Calibre 7281 for the military version. Each movement has a column wheel, vertical clutch, 5Hz frequency, and flyback functionality with 60 hours of power reserve, plus an inverted in-line lever escapement with a flat silicon balance spring for increased durability, longevity, and magnetic resistance.
Why two different calibers? The difference lies in dial layout and how useful it would be in military or civilian applications. On the military version, you only have two registers, with a 30-minute totalizer at three o'clock, now larger than the 60-second totalizer at nine o'clock. Meanwhile, the civilian version has a 15-minute totalizer at three o'clock, a 12-hour totalizer at six o'clock, and running seconds at nine o'clock.
This is not a cheap watch. It will run you $18,000. But it might just be one of the best vintage revivals we have seen in a year full of vintage revivals. 3/ French Watchmaker Yema Teams Up With Alpine French Racing Team To Mark The Most French Race With Five New Watches
One of the most legendary races in the world starts on Saturday and ends on Sunday. Yes, it’s the 24 hours of Le Mans. The race is, of course, one of the most recognisable french things, alongside the croissant and hating tourists. You know what else is very french? Alpine, the legendary car manufacturer that gained it’s fame with the quirky A110 and is currently doing really well (under Renault ownership) with its successor, also called the A110. Alpine will be present at the 24h of Le Mans With their Endurance Team. If only there was a watchmaker that could join in, making it a French hat trick. There is. It’s Yema. Yema has made five new watches to mark Alpine’s stint at Le Mans - the Yema Rallygraf A470 Limited Edition and four Rallygraf Alpine Endurance Team Automatic models of which one is mechanical while the other three are powered by the Seiko VK64 meca-quartz movement.
The Yema Rallygraf A470 Limited Edition takes all the right cues from 70s racing chronographs. The stainless steel case is 39mm wide and 12mm thick without the double-domed sapphire crystal. The solid caseback shows the Alpine Endurance Team logo and the limitation of the watch. The dial is finished in a gradient-blue colour, Alpine’s signature color, with a vintage dashboard-inspired bicompax layout and Alpine’s logo on the chronograph seconds hand. Inside the watch is the Valjoux 7753 and the watch comes on an appropriate black leather rally strap with a steel pin buckle. This watch will be limited to 470 pieces and can be pre-ordered for a price of USD 2,190 with delivery expected in September 2023.
This runs at a frequency of 28,800vph and delivers 48 hours of power reserve. The watch comes on a black leather rally strap with a steel pin buckle. Limited to 470 pieces, tying in with the car, it can be pre-ordered for a price of EUR 2,190 with delivery expected in September 2023
Then there’s the meca-quartz variants. They take the same case as the Rallygraf and give it three variations - white dial with a blue outside minute track
, a cream dial with a black outside minute track
or a black dial with a cream outside minute track
. All of these are also available for preorder now for EUR 399 and will be delivered in September 2023.
Yema also announced a second mechanical watch made in collaboration with Alpine, the Rallygraf Alpine Endurance Team Automatic. This will officially be unveiled this coming Saturday at the Circuit de la Sarthe, during the racing weekend of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Although we don’t know all the details at this moment, we can see it’s made of stainless steel
, comes on a multi-link bracelet or black leather strap and has a black dial. The bidirectional rotating bezel can be used to calculate speeds, in combination with the inner ‘Temps Ecoule’ flange in white and blue. It is powered by the in-house Calibre YEMA2000 and will cost USD 990. 4/ The Dan Henry 1970 44mm is back with new colours and the same, affordable price
You might know Dan Hendy as the microbrand that has been pumping out vintage inspired watches since 2016. What you might not know is that they made their name with the Dan Henry 1970 44mm Automatic Diver, the first of their watches to feature an automatic movement. While it might not seem like a big deal, it was for Dan Hanry and the shoppers in the sub $500 range. While Dan Henry serviced it’s customers by providing good value for money with quartz movements, the 1970 44mm Automatic Diver was the first time they offered a mechanical movement at such an affordable price. It sold out instantly and now, four years later, they are back with a limited edition of 1970 pieces.
It’s a very big watch. Very big. The heavy stainless steel super compressor style case measures 44mm in diameter and is 14.8mm thick with a 50.5mm lug-to-lug length. Despite these large dimensions, and with all other manufacturers fighting to go smaller, people still love this watch. They love it enough for it to go for over retail on the secondary market, which is not common for a watch in this pricepoint. Both of the crowns, one for rotating the inner-bezel and one for adjusting the time, screw into the case, giving it 200m water resistance.
The dials get a contrasting pop of color on the outskirts. There’s the black and orange, as well as the black and off-white with a black case and blue with white color combinations. Each version comes with its own colour-matching FKM rubber tropic strap. To keep the price low, the watches are powered by the Seiko NH35. Not the best movement in the world, but it gets the job done for an exceptionally low price.
The new Dan Henry 1970 44mm Automatic Diver is limited to 1,970 pieces, available from Dan Henry and costs $310
. 5/ Bamford Teams Up With Land Rover For The LR002 Limited Edition
Somehere near the end of last year, Land Rover designed their first watch. They called it the LR001 and they turned to Bamford to put the watch into production. It was a great looking field watch made of titanium and all in shades of grey, with a decent price and limited to 100 pieces so they all sold out very fast. Now, Bamford London and Land Rover are bringing it back with an updated, equally limited, version in all black called the LR002.
The LR002 is pretty much the same watch as the LR001, except for the color. While not a fan of black watches, this isn’t a bad thing, as it gives you a chance to buy the sold out Land Rover watch. What is bad is the price, but more on that later. The case measures 40mm wide and 13.25mm thick, and is made out of DLC coated titanium. It has a shape that resembles a field watch but much more modern and has fixed bars. From photos, due to the thick case and fixed bars, this watch looks to wear much larger than it actually is.
The dial seems to be much more interesting than the case. It has a sandwich construction with the top part having a matte black surface and the underside being filled with white lume. And by alternating circular and oblong cutouts, there’s a dynamic look to the dial. Inside the watch is the same movement as in the LR001, the Selita SW200-1B, and it’s delivered on a leather NATO-style bracelet.
The LR002 will have a run of just 100 pieces that are exclusively sold through Hodinkee. At the time of writing there are still pieces available for sale at a price of $1,700. And that’s the biggest issue. The LR001 sold for about $1,300 and the only difference between the two watches is the DLC coating. Is it worth the price difference? 6/ The Casio A120 Is The Best Pairing For Stranger Things, But Do We Need It?
The immense popularity of Stranger Thing undoubtedly lies in it’s 80s nostalgia that reminded us all of our childhoods. While playing to our good memories, it also roped in new generations by picking the best the decade had to offer and presenting it as something cool. That’s why you have a bunch of kids out there listening to Kate Bush and Metallica, while wearing Casio watches and buying VHS tapes. So it only makes perfect sense that Casio would team up with Stranger Things for a limited edition watch, and what better reference to do it with then the A120. This is the Casio x Stranger Things A120WEST-1A.
The watch is a classic Casio A120, with a 33.5mm x 40.7mm rectangle case and since it’s plastic it weighs only 25 grams. It’s not filled with a bunch of functions, but it does have a chronograph, alarm and calendar and you get three years of battery life. There’s a number of Stranger Things references on the watch - there’s a silhouette of the series’ demogorgon monster beneath the digital display and the LED backlight flickers and rapidly blinks just like the surfacing of a demogorgon in the show. Once lit, you can see the watermark of an upside down Stranger Things logo.
Casio has not announced when the watch will be available or how much it will cost, but you can keep an eye out on it here
. Is this a nice homage to a good TV show, or just another example of over-consumerism and corporate media properties slapping their name everywhere, without actually making a meaningfully authentic version of the watch?
On hand - a selection of reviews 1/ A review of Monta’s current flagship dress watch, the Noble 2/ Hands on with the 39mm and 42mm versions of the Hanhart 414 ES Flyback 3/ A week with the Audemars Piguet Royal Oak Offshore limited edition in pink gold and titanium
Watch Worthy - A look at an offbeat, less known watch you might actually like Dryden is a go-everywhere-do-anything watch with plenty of options
Great dials are always appreciated, but no matter how good the dial is, it doesn’t matter if the watch isn’t wearable. The excellent design choices found on the dial of the Heartlander follow through to the case. Crafted from stainless steel the 38mm-wide case has a lovely 46mm lug-to-lug distance and is only 11.2mm-thick from solid steel caseback to domed sapphire crystal. These dimensions are in the Goldilocks region for an everyday watch for me and my ~6.5-inch wrist. The cases are predominantly brushed except for a thin highly polished bevel that flanks each side of the lugs.

2023.06.07 14:01 Lord__Business PSAs of the week (June 7, 2023)
Buckle up kids, there's a lot going on that you should know. Tried to keep it short, but the devil's in the details, so I did the best I could. Inhale
- New content day! New EQ and SQ drops at the usual time. Read about rewards and details here, but basically EQ is the same as always and SQ will be a limited entry event using keys you gather from completing spider-related objectives.
- New BG meta for Gladiator Circuit drops today too. This is week 3, meaning we've got 2 more weeks of this season. Read about the meta nodes here.
- Cassie Lang and Future Ant Man aren't receiving any tune ups or downs, except Kabam is treating some bug fixes as a tune up such that they won't be doing an old champion buff (spoiler alert: LB thinks that's stupid). Details here. Buff schedule going forward: Shuri and Attuma buffs went live with the June patch, Mantis buff comes in July, Abs Man tune "down" (reducing regen when he's not 100% health at start of fight) comes in August, and the FAM "buff" will be in September.
- A big ol' ban wave rolled out last night. Kabam smacked arena botters and BG modders with 7-day or permanent bans. A lot of big account names were hit (like over half of TCN are banned right now). Read details here. LB editorial: good work Kabam, cheaters can get fucked.
- AW season lasts one more week. Last war had a host of bugs, so Kabam won't apply points from that war to season total (the W or L will still affect your war rating, which affects which tier you're in, but it won't affect your final season placement score, which relies solely on points). To fix it, Kabam is going to bump up each alliance's season rewards up a level, so Gold 1 placement will receive Platinum 4 rewards, P2 gets P1, etc. Details here. Because this adjustment takes time, AW season rewards will be delayed by about a week.
- Kabam is running a vote on which champs should be in the first 7* Titan crystal. They already messed up by including BWCV when she shouldn't have been an option. It's on Twitter if you want to participate, they're releasing new polls over the next few days/weeks.
- Mod hat on for Subreddit announcement we will be shutting down the sub starting June 12 to protest Reddit's decision to kill 3rd party apps. Details of what's happening and why it's bad are here, but basically Reddit's official mobile app is dogshit and they're going to start preventing other apps from accessing the site. It affects a ton of people, including the mods who keep the sub tuned up. So we're going to join the boycott by making the sub private. Feel free to express your opinion on this important matter in the comments or the linked post.

2023.06.07 14:01 Long-Recognition-105 Baby will NOT let me put him down
My baby is 7 weeks old. He will NEVER let me or my husband put him down. He has very bad acid reflux (just got on medication for it) and whenever he lays on his back within 5-10 minutes he spits up and wakes up. No matter if it’s been 3 hours after he eats… he won’t sit in a swing, won’t lay in his bassinet, nothing. Which means it’s virtually impossible to sleep. My husband and I have been taking shifts sleeping but he is starting back work next week- he works at a hospital and will be on call for an entire week so we can’t do that next week. What can I do?! I need at least a little sleep. The next week I start back and I’m so worried about this. My poor baby cries constantly at night and I just feel so overwhelmed and sad for him. If you have any tips, please please share

2023.06.07 14:00 YeetMyLifeIntoPieces Fans are freaking out and I have no idea why.
This is coming off the back of Kante essentially being on the verge of leaving club. While this state of mania is not restricted to this incident, I will address this first with regards to my confusion.
One of the main reasons fans are freaking out over this is that they think the club and the board is losing it's marbles by letting our champions league winning midfield starter leave the club.
Let me make it abundantly clear: Kanté has been, and will remain to be one of my favorite ever Chelsea players I've had the pleasure of watching. However, we need to be real with ourselves - in the past year, the man hasn't been able to go 3 games without being injured, and even when he was on the field, you could see age clearly catching up to him. In a position like Kanté's, with his particular playstyle, losing even a yard of pace means he'll never really get better from this point on. Look at it after taking off your rose-tinted glasses, and you'll see that we are not losing a starter.
We will not be able to replicate him; players like Kanté you see once in a lifetime, but I am confident that we will be able to find someone who can operate in our midfield to the level of excellence that Chelsea are used to. We've already got Enzo, who honestly I am the most excited for. All we need to do is find someone who compliments him, and we've got an engine in the middle of the park that would play teams off the pitch.
Kanté has been a loyal servant to the club, and I'm sure we all love him for it, but he's got an offer to play football for, quite frankly, silly money, without even accounting for the fact that he's going to play in a country that is, in all sense of the word, a mecca for his practiced faith. No brainer for him, and I wish him nothing but the best in whatever he decides.
Coming to the next issue for this seemingly unrequited panic - Mason Mount.
There are a whole bunch of contradictory reports coming from both camps - Chelsea alleging that Mount turned down a contract in favor of a higher pay, Mounts camp alleging Chelsea refused to offer him what he is worth. Nobody really knows what exactly has transpired behind the scenes of this debacle. My view is that Mounts performance over the past year has not shown us that he deserves to be our top earner. Not by a longshot.
I think fans are severely biased by the fact that he is a homegrown English talent come through the ranks of Cobham, but that is by no means a crutch for mediocrity. Admittedly, our wage structure is very flawed, and that is a topic of discussion for another day, but I reiterate that he does not deserve a jaw-dropping contract.
People often draw comparisons to Reece James and how we treat him, but the main difference here is that on his day (read: fully fit) Reece James is arguably one of the best RBs on the planet. An average performance from him is still miles above anyone in a similar role. If we look at Mount on his day, he is a very good midfielder, nothing more. He does have sparks of brilliance from time-to-time, but he is not consistently a world beater, something that Reece James has the potential to be, provided he isn't riddle by injury. That throws the Reece James comparison out the window.
In a season that we could only describe is abysmal, where there was seldom joy to be found in the way the players performed on the pitch, you go and ask for a higher salary and demand to be "valued"? Especially after consistently dropping below-par, mediocre performances? I'll leave it you how you perceive that.
If he were actually "True Chels" like everyone defending him are claiming, then he'd stick it out next season - during our rebuild, with a proper system and an experienced manager. Chances are if he did stay, under the newer circumstances, I actually do believe that he'd come good, and would put in shifts that would warrant giving him the money that he seemingly has been demanding. But nobody is bigger than the club, and nobody is irreplaceable, especially someone who wants to go to our direct rivals. I can't say I wish him the best, exclusively for that reason, but I have no ill-feeling towards him.
There are other issues that have caused fans to be irate, which I completely understand after the utter shambles of a season we've just witnessed, but we were due a season like this. Every team goes through it at some point in their cycle, and they come out far better for it. That is the point of rebuilds - you build from the ground up and work your way back up to being monsters. It will take some time, but there is no point acting like the ship is sinking when the reality is far from it. It is docked at a shipyard, awaiting new parts, with a new captain at the helm, and in a few months, we will be seaworthy once again.
Up the Chels.

2023.06.07 14:00 Makoto009 Overheated Deck
last weekend i just left my Deck in my car inside a backpack - it was in sleep mode. So i let it there for ~2-3h and it was a bit hot outside. So my car heated up.
Don't thought anything because my Deck was in sleep mode. Afterwards i went home and unpacked my backpack and noticed, that there is a lot of heat. Took my Deck Case out and unzipped my Deck ... and it was powerd on?!?!
The display showed my homescreen but i couldn't interact with it anymore ... it was completly unresponsive. Understandable because the fans were blocked and so it heated itselfe up. So i pressed the power button for a hard poweroff. Let my Deck cool down and charged it afterwards.
So now everythinh seems to work again without problem (just had to select the proper boot file because i stucked while booting) ... but is there any way to check the hardware? I'm a bit concerned that the heat demaged my Deck/hardware. Didn't really tested games for now but it boots up and i can install updates etc.
Can you please help me :)

2023.06.07 14:00 Thrower__ AITA for cutting my friend off?
Ok so, first of all let me state that yes, I Desk, am underage and the other person involved who we will refer too as Klax (first thing that came to mind) is also underage but I do not know if im doing the right thing. So this story starts 2 years ago when I stayed at Klax's house for the first time from then on I would stay at his house more and more often. And then one night we got a 8th of medical grade weed instead of street weed we started off smoking medical grade so it felt like we were (or however you spell that word) comfortable with weed again and would then at that point have someone buy for us.
Fast forward about half a year into late freshman year Klax's consumption along with my consumption tripled essentially but the weed was making Klax's mental health keep going down and down along with certain family things that wouldntve bothered him before this point. And I am not going to say I didnt have a hand in the weed consumption because I was the stoner friend who knew the people who would let us smoke for free sometimes, I also have a bad history with the law (not with weed but for speeding and other things like unregistered vehicles like quads and bikes and running from cops) so I am definitely a contributing factor as a bad influence.
fast forward a little ways farther we enter sophomore year as basically brothers but now since its summer I dont want Klax to keep smoking and Klax also picked up the habit of vaping (because of me this will play a part as im still thinking what I should do because ive tried everything to try and get him to stop but it seems like ive really just enabled him?). fast forward to now we are like a coal train in a cartoon everytime we smoke and its not healthy for Klax mentally and his parents even though they allow him to smoke theyve been pushing him to stop but Klax keeps brushing it off and saying he's fine.
I definitely think because I am a bad influence think I should distance myself but im planning to grab all of his vape and weed stuff so he doesnt smoke and I do not know whether or not this is a good idea so im turning to you guys in the weed
community and the aita
community for a little guidance
(I directed to the aita thing as this is my first post ever and im just control+c and control+v to make things easier for me)

2023.06.07 14:00 dassalasky5 On the Verge of Quitting
I've posted before about how one day per week, I suffer terribly from gastric issues since starting Ozempic. I have all-day nausea that isn't helped by rubbing alcohol or ginger or water or tea. Swallowing anything is hard. I have sulfur burps. Vomiting follows after hours of upset, and I'm throwing up things I've eaten several hours prior (my 7am oatmeal came up at 9pm last night??). It usually comes with diarrhea too.
I've tried everything. Less fat. More fiber. No carbs. More water. More calories, fewer calories. High protein. Walking more. B12. Ginger chews.
I can't solve this puzzle. I'm down 20lbs today after 5 weeks, but I feel like most of that has come from this one day a week where I'm totally incapacitated. The last time I had one of these days, I told my husband he would have to call 911. Passed out in the bathroom. He didn't listen because we live in the US and an ambulance trip to the hospital would have set us back $10k at least...but I survived.
I'm just at my wits' end. Anyone else suffering like this?? Just me?? I'm traveling for work next week and terrified that I'll have one of these days when out of the country. Help!

2023.06.07 14:00 dorothea63 E is for Everybody’s a Star! + F vote
| || | submitted by dorothea63 to thekinks [link] [comments]
Well, that was a tight vote! Every time I reloaded the page, either “End of the Season” or “Everybody’s a Star” had jumped ahead of the other by one vote. Either Reddit was being glitchy or there was some serious up/down voting happening in the last few minutes.
But “Everybody’s a Star” ultimately topped the list as thekinks
members’ favorite E song.
Now it’s time to vote for your favorite F song. Leave a comment if it hasn’t been listed yet; if it’s already been listed, upvote instead. I’ll keep voting active for 24 hours, until midnight EDT / 5am BST.
ETA: I had a Reddit glitch and this didn’t post properly at midnight. I’m reposting at 8am EDT. Should I still close voting tonight at midnight? Or should I keep it active for an extra day?

2023.06.07 13:59 cyanoborg Anyone buying in Boston area? How many offers until accepted? Tips?
Heyo - put my first offer in on a house in the Boston suburbs this weekend and got close but no cigar. 60K over asking, 15% down, inspection for informational purposes only. Got beat out by higher offer, higher percent down, and waived inspection. I MIGHT be in second place if the first offer falls through, but alas, back to the market.
I'm just polling for others experience in the Boston area. How many offers did it take you to finally get one accepted? How long were you searching? Did you try anything special to make your offer more appealing? I've heard of folks bringing inspectors along on viewing to make waiving inspection less of a risk. I could spend my nest egg to up my down payment but I really wanted that money for home improvements, furnishing, etc. Any experience appreciated to help ease my anxiety on the uncertainty!

2023.06.07 13:58 Ok_Elephant_1554 Can she play
When I was around 2 to 3 me my mum and dad lived in a shared house, it was supposed to be just for women fleeing domestic violence or coming out of prison but my mum knew the landlady so my dad was aloud to live with us at this house.Normally men are not aloud to live in these houses due yo vulnerable women fleeing their domestic abuse. This house had a big shared back garden but for some reason we were the only ones to used it, it had giant trees at the end of the lawn and was all grass, I had a little round frog paddling pool I used to play in by myself. Upstairs lived a women and her daughter they would stand in the window for hours watching me play in my pool. I used to beg my mum could I play with the little girl upstairs as I was lonely playing in my pool by myself but all I would get back is no amy there is no little girl up there, I used to get so angry with my mum for lieing to me. One morning the lady from up stairs was in my kitchen having a cupper with my mum this was the first time my mum and her had spoken I seen this as my opportune moment to ask her could I please play with her daughter I told her I would be her best friend and look after her but the response I got only made me more angry the lady told me she didn't have a little girl who lived with her I knew she was lieing I seen her with her all the time I asked her who was the girl in the window then ? All I got was a sad expression and the lady left my mum and dad never spoke to her again. Fast forward to me being in my 20s I brought this up with my mum and asked her why they wouldn't let me play with the girl upstairs my mums face just dropped and this is what she told me, Amy the house we lived in was for women coming out of prison and escaping domestic violence, the lady upstairs had been released from prison for stabbing her husband to death, the lady had 4 children 3 with her husband and a older daughter about 8 years old from a previous relationship. Tragedy struck them and her 8 year old daughter fell down the stairs in the middle of the night and broke her neck and died. One night a few years after the daughters death the lady and her husband were in a bad place with one another and were drinking and arguing alot. when the husband was drunk he told her that he had infact pushed her daughter down the stairs and killed her it wasn't an accident so she snapped and stabbed him to death her other children were adopted to a family in Australia and she went to prison. My blood ran cold when my mum told me this but straight away everything started to make sense. I still to this day remember what the little girl looked like.

2023.06.07 13:57 noidontwannachange Rounding Up a Value to a range of Numbers
I've been trying to figure this out for the past 30 minutes and i can't seem to find a solution to this problem, which should be pretty simple in theory:
I want the value from A1 to be always rounded UP to the next bigger number from the list of numbers down below. (The numbers between A3 and A22) So inputting a value of 1637 into A1 should round be rounded up to to 1800, which is the next biggest available number. (exactly like in the image) https://preview.redd.it/khplmhz94l4b1.png?width=417&format=png&auto=webp&s=5a229b450d7236bba38c9a1eacf918349e898af9
I'd appreciate your help and thanks in advance.
