2023.06.08 12:50 Nyakuza24 Why did I suddenly get a ton of party members?

So I recently started playing Neptunia reverse and have absolutely zero prior experience with the Neptunia franchise but had been interested in trying it out for some time. I picked original mode as that was recommended for newbies like myself and didn’t want to be overwhelmed with a dozen party members right of the bat. I had just beaten the first chapter and was clicking through some information boxes when the game suddenly just gave me a ton of party members out of nowhere, some of which can even transform. I feel like I wasn’t supposed to get these or something and am honestly just very confused why the game gave me them so early. Should I have picked them up or was it like something extra if you wanted to have a strong party from the start?

2023.06.08 12:50 paulj1096 [H] $$$, HH [W] Imperialis/Chalnath Terrain [Loc] PA, USA

I'm looking for sector imperialis ruins to flesh out a table I'm working on. Prefer new in box. Older sets like Basilicanum, Imperial Sector, or Sanctum would be awesome. But, I'm also interested in the Chalnath Terrain that's more recent. I'd also be very interested in Derelict Manufactorums.
I have PayPal or plastic HH to trade. I have almost all of the Age of Darkness box new on sprue (5 cataphractii and the contemptor built to a high standard). I also have a Sicaran and Deimos Rhino that are assembled well, bare plastic.
Shoot me a PM.

2023.06.08 12:48 _Average__Redditor What am I setting myself up for?

Hello beautiful people of VCE. I’m a year 10 student about to hopefully pick his ATAR (depending on how much he screws up his exams in the next few days) towards the beginning of the next school term. I’m just wondering from people who have done or are doing it, what my choices are going to get me into study and ATAR result wise? As well as an overview of my hope-full future study life for becoming an engineer. Firstly the ATAR’s I plan on taking are;
Mathematics Specialist - One of my subjects I’m doing ok in this year. - Averaging 70% as of my current maths extension course. - Feels amazing to understand in full.
Maths Methods - same as spec.
Physics - currently averaging 86% on physics test in science ext, as it’s the only science subject I’ve nearly failed before, so being stubborn I’ve decided to eradicate my skill issue. - have a genuine interest in how the universe works in this way.
Chemistry - chemical go 💥 - another strong one I’m averaging 89% on in my science extension course. - have a genuine interest in how the universe works this way.
English - I’m ok at english, not doing too hot this term as we were just introduced to close reading and play writing. - Otherwise pretty strong on essay writing and short stories, range from 70-83% on those
Bonus question, wtf is a study score? Are there any other ways to boost my ATAR?

The episode resumed on a shot of the dark and dank and craggy underground cave, water drips echoing in the background as the camera panned to the left. It stopped on a small and sudden burst of bubbles, then cut in closer as Geoff broke the surface with a spluttering cough. Scarlett joined him a moment later.
"Where's Anne Maria?" Geoff wondered once he saw no sight of her.
He got his answer when Anne Maria resurfaced, Scarlett apparently on top of her head. "Do I look like a lifeboat?!" the jersey girl grunted and threw Scarlett off of her.
"We had no idea where we'd land. It's not our fault," Geoff said.
"And besides, we're separated from Dave and Molly," Scarlett replied. "Finding them will be beneficial if we want to make it out of here alive." As she spoke, a pair of glowing eyes figure appeared in the background, crawling down the rock.
"I do not want to die, and I definitely don't want anyone else to," Anne Maria said.
"My point exactly," Scarlett stated… just before the shadowy figure tackled her underwater.
"Scarlett!" Geoff shouted in worry. "Anne Maria, she's gone! What do we do?"
"Get out of this before we get dragged down," Anne Maria responded before they swam to shore.
The scene flashed to the wrecked mine cart still on dry land, which had crashed against a thick and massive stalagmite. The camera panned to the left onto the fallen bodies of Molly and Dave. The germaphobe got to his feet with an active flashlight still in his hands and groaned as he looked around.
He immediately spotted the indie girl nearby and gasped. "Molly!" he exclaimed, running over to her. "Get up!" he added, tapping Molly on the side of the head with the flashlight and groaning when he didn't get a response.
With a swift cry of "Wake up already!" he kicked the girl on her side, who immediately groaned in pain and got to her feet.
"Dave…" Molly mumbled and frowned. "Did you just kick me?"
"I had to get you up somehow," Dave admitted.
"I can see that," Molly agreed.
"Now come on," Dave said, Molly's eyes widening as he unknowingly rose about a foot into the air. "We have to find the others and the statue!" It was then that he noticed his sudden height change, and along with Molly, he looked at his feet.
The camera zoomed out a step, revealing that Dave was now standing on the head of a giant hairless gopher that had just popped out of the ground. They screamed and ran away in fear as the gopher rose up even more and roared at them.
The camera cut back to Trent and Scott running as their mutant gopher continued chasing them down a tunnel. Just then, Trent tripped on one of the planks laid out for mining cart tracks, and tumbled over Scott, sending them both to the floor.
The gopher caught up to them, much to their fright, and began sniffing at them. It recoiled with a whimper afterwards.
"Why is it doing that?" Trent asked as he and Scott got off the floor.
Scott looked at the gopher. "Their eyes are glued shut, so it had to follow us by smell."
"I took a shower this morning," Trent reminded the devious.
Scott lifted his right armpit and sniffed it. "I never do that, so my armpits are pretty skunky."
"Gross," Trent grimaced.
The gopher went back to squealing at the two Rats, and while Trent took a step back, Scott didn't do the same.
"You don't like the smell of my armpits?" Scott smirked at the gopher and took a step forward. "Too bad, because it's never going away!" He raised his arms, and moved towards the gopher, who scurried away in a second.
"Having a clean stench is important," Trent said as he stepped up beside him, "but since it saved us, I'll ignore it this time." He patted him on the back, to which Scott grinned back at.
The camera panned across another cave, from an entrance tunnel on the right, past a large pile of toxic waste barrels, and on to Scarlett lying on the ground with a small puddle of water near her face, next to some steps carved into a higher level of stone.
She coughed up a bit of water then looked up. "Where am I?" she asked.
The shot rather ominously panned up to a familiar figure sitting on what looked like a cobbled-together set of bunk beds atop the plateau. A few mutant gophers were on the platform with him, but a couple more started to surround Scarlett.
"I will have no problem harming you myself if you do not back off!" Scarlett threatened the gophers, and one of them got hit by a familiar shoe.
"Step away from her, gophers!" the figure said, stepping out to reveal himself as Max.
"Max!!! What are you doing here?" Scarlett flabbergasted.
Max put his shoe back on and focused on the brainiac. "I have come to enact my revenge on you fools!"
All Scarlett could do was roll her eyes and facepalm.
A flash took the scene back to DJ, Sierra, and Sammy running through the mine. "What's taking them so long to catch up?" Sierra asked.
Sammy looked around the shaft. "We probably should've marked where we came from. I think we might be lost from them!"
They were interrupted by the gopher that Scott scared off scampering past them.
"There you guys are!" Trent's voice called, and the three Rats looked in the direction the voice came from.
Scott and Trent then appeared on the scene. "We were almost killed by that gopher, but luckily, my armpits saved the day!" Scott boasted.
"Your armpits?" DJ muttered confused.
"He doesn't shower very often," Trent answered.
"Disgusting," Sammy winced. "Anywho, we should get going since we're reunited!"
Suddenly, five pairs of mutant gopher hands shot up out of the ground under the Rats, grabbing them by their ankles. "Unless they do that," Sammy sighed just before the gophers pulled them screaming into the earth.
"Why did you bring me here, and how were you able to return after your departure?!" Scarlett asked as the scene cut back to her and Max.
"I "borrowed" a canoe from a relative of mine and decided to swim back to the island after rewatching the past episodes and doing a bit of research on gophers in order to seize control of them," Max explained, using air quotes on borrowed.
"I highly doubt you were able to get these creatures under your control," Scarlett doubted. "You obviously had help from someone."
Max griped in annoyance. "If you must know, I encountered that clone from last season and decided to bring him along as he's a very intimidating fellow."
It was then that the second figure landed in the middle of the room. Scarlett widened her eyes and Max yelped and yelled "E-Clone! Do not sneak up on me!"
"Did you have the Ezekiel clone capture me so I would be one of your sidekicks," Scarlett followed up.
"With your super-advanced brain, who'd pass you up?" Max responded, making Scarlett and E-Clone frown at the super villain.
The scene cut to a drop of water landing in a small puddle, soon followed by two sets of feet that ran through it. The camera zoomed out to show them belonging to Molly and Dave, the two Maggots panting as they ran down the tunnel.
"I'm starting to feel the signs of chemical exposure," Molly moaned. "Fever and nausea."
Seconds later, Dave's arm badge beeped and turned red, earning a surprised look from both teens. "Five minutes left," Dave said. "Let's not die here." Molly's badge changed soon after, but they ignored it as they were in the same predicament.
"I see Dave and Molly!" the voice of Anne Maria called out. The scene zoomed out to show her and Geoff meeting up with the two.
"Anne Maria! Geoff! Nice to have you here," Dave told them. "But where's Scarlett?"
"She got captured by some cave monster," Geoff answered.
"We have to find her!" Molly declared.
"We should leave these dumb packs before they slow us down," Dave added, moving to take the straps off his shoulders.
The sudden crackle and whine of a loudspeaker turning on gave him pause however. "Those packs of pain stay on until I tell you otherwise!" Chris told them. "Or your whole team is disqualified! Dis-qual-i-fied!"
"YOU BETTER NOT LET US US DIE IN HERE!" Anne Maria screamed the moment the message ended.
"Uhh, I'm more of a watcher than a saver," Chris replied. The loudspeaker shut off again, and the four Maggots shared an infuriated look.
"My answer is no!" Scarlett's voice was heard.
"That's Scarlett over there," Geoff said, pointing forward. "Let's roll, dudes." He took off first, and his teammates quickly followed after.
The scene flashed back to the entrance to the cave that E-Clone, Max, and Scarlett were in as the four remaining Maggots ran in as well.
"Whatever you want to accomplish, I have no interest in assisting you," Scarlett informed Max, a few mutant gophers standing nearby.
"Can one of you get these gophers off of us!" the voice of Scott asked, causing the camera to quick-pan over to him. Though his team's jar of fireflies was still on DJ's head, the shot zoomed out to reveal that he was dangling with his heavy pack in the jaws of a mutant gopher standing on its haunches on a pile of barrels; another outward zoom revealed the rest of his team in a similar state next to him.
"Great. Now our chances of getting that statue is harder," Dave complained.
"So all of you have come for your golden statues?" Max asked everyone around him.
"Of course we did!" Sierra said. "And why not give my team our statue before the Maggots got here?"
"Simple. I take pleasure in making stuff harder for everybody around me, and seeing you hung up by the gophers is delightful," Max explained. "I told you I would get my revenge."
"Is he always this eccentric?" Trent asked the Rats since he didn't know Max prior to his team swap.
"To answer your question, definitely," Sammy nodded. She took the jar off of DJ's head, and the fireflies swarmed around the gophers' faces, forcing them to drop the Rats and their packs.
"This wasn't part of the plan," Max complained as he saw the gophers running around in order to avoid the fireflies.
"I'll go ahead and get the statue for us," DJ assured his teammates. He ran to the throne, and jumped on a passing gopher's back to reach it. Once up there, he took the statue with the green base. "I got it!"
The Maggots gasped in shock as the rest of the Rats got back up. "Rats, head for the mine carts!" Trent commanded, pointing off to where a trio of mine carts sat on a rail.
DJ agreed, only for E-Clone to appear and block his path. DJ yelped in fright, and the clone tackled him, starting a scuffle. The Toxic Rats' statue flew from DJ's hand in the process.
Moments later, a crackling through the air indicated the start of a message over the loudspeaker. "If you can hear this," Chris called out as DJ tried to fend off E-Clone, "congrats! You're not dead yet!" Scarlett was shown paying attention to the speaker, while Dave and Anne Maria ran to their statue and Molly collapsed out of exhaustion. "Wherever you are, immediately discard your bombs. I mean, backpacks, and run!"
The shot cut back to Scott and Sierra, who were in the process of taking off their own packs.
"Bombs?!" Sierra exclaimed, lifting the largest flap to see what looked like several sticks of dynamite and a detonator as Scott very quickly removed his backpack. "That's too far!"
"This is where I must be going!" Max screamed and rushed to the carts in a seemingly speedy manner, much to Scarlett's confusion. The super speeding boy tripped on a rail, but managed to land on the middle cart.
"He stayed here for way too long, and that's something I'll investigate after we're out," Scarlett said to herself and ran to the carts.
Anne Maria and Dave placed their packs on the throne, and Anne Maria snatched up the statue with the red base. "Bada bling, baby!"
"You guys," Geoff weakly called, "me and Molly are feeling wiped out." Dave and Anne Maria turned around, and saw Geoff dragging Molly slowly and weakly as their packs were discarded. Before they could get any closer, a gopher appeared and started squealing at them, frightening both Molly and Geoff.
"Geoff!!" Anne Maria cried out and gave the statue to Dave. "Hold the statue. These gophers are about to get ham fisted!"
"So I go to the carts? Okay," Dave shrugged and made his way to them.
Meanwhile, DJ managed to get the upper hand in his fight with E-Clone, and took off his pack in the process in order to put it on him.
"I have the statue. Let's go!" Sammy told DJ, who carried E-Clone along as Geoff and Molly were being protected by Anne Maria holding the gopher back.
The shot cut to the carts just as Dave reached them. Sammy, Scott, Sierra, and Trent were on the front cart and DJ, E-Clone, Max, and Scarlett were in the middle. Dave was about to get on the back cart, but he heard the sounds of Anne Maria struggling to fend off the gopher.
"I want to avoid toxic at all costs, and I can do so right now, but what about them?" Dave said while watching his endangered team.
"I can't hold on any longer!" Anne Maria grunted in her hold.
"You can do this," Geoff motivated the Jersey shore reject.
"Geoff, if we don't make it out alive," Anne Maria strained harder, "I want to let you know that I lo-"
A clang sound from behind the gopher was heard, and Anne Maria took her hands away from the gopher the moment it fainted from the blow. The camera panned out to show Dave appearing from behind it with their team's statue in hand.
"Dave!" Molly smiled. "You're our hero!"
"I'm not leaving anyone to die today!" Dave confirmed, and then frowned upon seeing the statue break.
The footage went ahead to them arriving at the rear most cart. Dave helped Molly and Geoff onto the cart, Anne Maria already on it. Dave pushed the carts from the side until they started moving forward, then hopped up into the back cart.
Most of those still conscious screamed as the carts rolled down a slope into a tunnel, then down even more into a slightly more open cave. The rails bent upward, and the carts followed them out of sight...
The shot cut outside to Chef and Chris waiting at what appeared to be a dilapidated mine entrance – a wooden platform and scaffolding that had been outside the elevated shaft had crumbled, and the cart track's end was twisted and bent. Both men were wearing hazmat suits, and Chef was holding the massive tongs normally reserved for elimination ceremonies.
"They're really cutting it close," Chris said.
"Mmm-hmm," Chef replied.
Seconds later, the camera panned up to focus on the entrance, and the trio of mine carts and their screaming passengers flew out into the air, then crashed just past the two adults.
When the resulting cloud of dust began to settle, the camera was focused on Max and E-Clone, the two boys coughing and hacking. The sudden clamping of the tongs around them caused them to stop, and the camera zoomed out to show Chef lifting them out of the rubble as Chris watched. "You two are leaving the island right now before you get more mutated," he said irritably before turning his focus towards the campers, just now groaning and getting to their feet.
Chris walked forward, and picked the green-based statue up off the ground. "And the Rats win! Again!"
The team just cheered weakly.
"All clear?" Chris turned and asked Chef, the hulking man still holding on to Max and E-Clone. Chef nodded, and the host took out a remote control. "EXECUTING OPERATION DOOMSDAY!" Chris shouted, pressing the button on the remote.
An explosion billowed out of the mine entrance, and when the smoke and dust cleared, it had been entirely blocked by rocks. Chris and Chef shared a happy nod.
"This wasn't about the statues!" Dave said, walking over to the two men.
"Sure it was!" Chris told him. "And as an added bonus," he motioned back to the blocked mine entrance, "you just helped me seal off the toxic waste forever! And get the feds off my back. It's win-win," he gave the camera a thumbs-up as Chef walked by behind him, "for me."
"I consider you anarchic," Scarlett told him, the shot zooming out to show the entire cast back on their feet.
"Yeah, I just keep getting better," Chris said. "Maggots, hope you're hungry for marshmallows. But first," Chef walked back up behind him, having traded in his captives for a fire hose, "before there's permanent genetic damage..." He walked away, and with a chuckle, Chef turned on the hose and doused the campers with a spray of water powerful enough to push them off-screen in a matter of seconds.
The footage skipped ahead to dusk, Molly and Dave standing by the girls' side of the Maggots' cabin. "I really appreciate you saving my life back there," Molly said to the normal guy.
"I couldn't just leave you guys behind," Dave responded. "That would have been selfish and wrong."
"I agree with that," Molly nodded. "Also, I'm sorry for not helping you and Katie when you were frozen. I'm trying to get used to cooperation, but that's no excuse to try and brush it off."
"You did mess up there, but I accept your apology," Dave smiled. "And here's something you can do as gratitude."
Dave whispered in Molly's ear, and the indie chick was surprised. "Really? You want to get eliminated?"
"I got over my fear of germs, and I don't want anything bad to happen after that near-death experience," Dave reasonably said.
"Did you already talk to our team about this?" Molly asked.
"I did," Dave nodded, "and besides, I was the one to break the statue, and nobody else did anything wrong."
"If this is what you want, I guess I can pay you back then," Molly agreed.
"That's all I needed out of you and the team," Dave said back.
The footage cut ahead to the ceremonial campfire.
"The votes, are in," Chris opened, the camera cutting outward to show him at his podium, Chef with the toxic marshmallow in a smaller pair of tongs, and the five members of the Mutant Maggots sitting nervously in a row. "Who will receive the Marshmallow of Loserdom and leave the game forever?" the host asked idly, the camera zooming in on the radioactive treat in question before panning back to Chris. "Following players are safe." He picked up the first of four normal marshmallows.
"Scarlett, Geoff, Anne Maria, and Molly," he said, tossing bits of white to each person called. "Dave, your time in Germ City has come to an end."
Dave got on his feet and quickly ducked as the toxic marshmallow was tossed overhead, landing with a sizzle off-camera. "Thanks for agreeing to vote for me!"
"You are a valuable asset to the team, but if you want to leave, then who are we to stop you?" Scarlett said.
"You're a total lifesaver man. I won't forget that about you," Geoff held out his hand for a high-five.
Dave returned the gesture. "Make sure to watch out for any more toxic that comes your way."
The scene flashed to the Dock of Shame, where Dave was already seated in the bucket of the season's catapult. Chris laughed, and asked "Any last words, Germaphobe?"
"One, I'm not scared of them as much anymore, and two, just fling the catapult," Dave replied, and he was soon flung into the sky.
The squeak of wheels caught Chris's attention, and the camera cut to a close-up of the wheels of a large hand truck. The shot zoomed out to reveal E-Clone and Max inside a cage being wheeled down the dock by Chef.
"It's time for the two of you to get off my island," Chris told the two captives.
"Aw, phooey," Max grumbled, and the Ezekiel clone growled angrily.
The footage flashed ahead a little, Max and E-Clone now sitting in the Hurl of Shame.
"I hope I taught you all a lesson," Max spoke up. "Evil always pre-VAAAIIIILLLLLLSSSS!" he shouted while he and E-Clone got shot into the sky.
The series's capstone theme began to play. "Join us next time," Chris said as he turned to the camera, "for more danger, treachery, and radical misadventures on Total! Drama! Rrrrevenge, of the Island!"

Toxic Rats: DJ, Scott, Trent, Sammy, Sierra
Mutant Maggots: Anne Maria, Molly, Scarlett, Dave, Geoff
Episode 07: A Mine is a Terrible Thing to Waste
"Last time, on Total Drama Revenge of the Island!" the unseen host opened on a stock shot of the island before the recap montage began. "We saw how clueless our players are when it comes to fashion," he said over a clip of the Maggots' disastrous attempt to bring a self-dressed Sasquatchanakwa out on to the runway. "And how useless they are when it comes to rescues!" he added over the Maggots getting knocked off the scaffolding by barrels thrown by Sasquatchanakwa and Sammy's ultimately failed attempt to seduce him.
"In the end, Katie got the toss-a-roo," Katie got tossed away by Sasquatchanakwa, and then was escorted away by Chef, "and DJ and Geoff got tossed onto opposite teams," Chris added over clips of the two boys volunteering, then high fiving each other as they walked over to their new teams.
The footage was cut to Chris sitting in a deck chair on the Dock of Shame as his toenails were being filed. "You call that buffing?" Chris asked, who was angry at the overweight intern filing his toenails. "I want to see my ruggedly handsome face in every toenail." The intern filed faster. "Who will thrive, and who won't survive?" Chris asked the camera, but a sudden strong wind and the sound of a rotor signaled the arrival of a helicopter.
"This is the Department of Environmental Protection!" a voice called out, the camera zooming out to show a RCMP helicopter hovering a few feet away from the host. "You're busted, McLean!"
"Aww, man!" Chris griped. "Meddling tree-huggers..." With a scowl on his face, he reached into his pocket, and pulled out a walkie-talkie. "Launch Operation Doomsday!" he ordered. "Repeat, Operation Doomsday! Over!" A short hiss of static ended the message, and he turned a smile to the camera. "What is Operation Doomsday, you ask? Find out right here, right now, on Total! Drama! Revenge, of the Island!" As the shot cut outward as usual, another pair of RCMP helicopters swooped down to join the first over the dock.
The scene opened up to show the Maggot cabin, where Dave was inside cleaning. He was currently setting up his bed and had just positioned his pillow.
"And with that, the cabin is clean and free of filth," Dave sighed happily.
Geoff then came running and breathing inside, unknowingly getting streaks on the floor.
"I just cleaned that!" Dave said with a bit of anger in his voice.
Geoff noticed his frustration. "Sorry 'bout that, man. I did just swap over to this team, so I don't know how much of a neat freak you are."
"It's okay," Dave forgave his new teammate. "Most of the jocks in my school come out messy after a football game, and I hate seeing muddy footprints and dirt all over the ground."
"You would not want to meet my team then," Geoff looked back. "We come off looking sweaty and we have to shower for ten minutes just to get the stink off."
Dave shuddered at the thought. "Let's stop talking about it. The thought of a muddy floor makes me nervous."
Confessional: DJ
"Being on a new team ain't gonna be a problem for me," DJ expressed his thoughts in the confessional. "I'm still lingering on from Katie's elimination. She tells me that she likes me, and I never get to tell her that I like her back." He let out a sigh of sadness. "I hope we get to meet after the show's all over."
Confessional Ends
The scene cut outside the Rats' cabin as a helicopter flew by overhead. The shot panned down to Geoff as he passed by the helicopter, then the camera showed Molly listening to another indie song on her mp3 player.
"You seemed to really like your mp3 player," Geoff chuckled a bit.
"I can't help it," Molly paused her song. "Indie songs don't normally play on the radio. Mostly pop and rock."
"I can see where you're coming from," Geoff sensed. "You like to drift away from the mainstream and focus on your own interests."
"I like other kinds of things like fashion trends and partying, but what I like is less out there," Molly answered. "I like to do things by myself. Being indie doesn't blend in well with other people."
Geoff sat down next to her. "Maybe no one will get invested by what you like to do, but there's someone who I know will."
"Who could that be?" Molly asked the party guy, not getting what she's saying.
Geoff picked up an earbud and put it in his ear. "They're right next to you."
Molly realized what was happening and put on the other earbud. "In that case, let me start the next song. It's really beachy."
This got a laugh out of both of them.
"Alright, let's just get our so-called breakfast over with!" Molly said as she and Geoff walked into the hall, the cast standing around looking confused.
"We can't," Dave replied. "Chef's not here, and neither is breakfast!"
"I suppose we will just have to hunt for our food, in a figure of speech," Scarlett requested before everyone began searching.
The perspective changed to show the inside of a refrigerator as Trent opened the door and looked inside. "There's no food in the fridge," he called out after looking over the bare shelves.
"Nothing in the cupboards, either!" Sammy added after opening a cupboard door.
"We should check in the walk-in freezer!" Chef suggested through a small open window, quickly hurrying away as the camera zoomed out to reveal Dave standing nearby.
"The freezer could work!" Dave thought out. He hurried across the room and threw open the freezer door, stepping inside as a cold mist poured out. "I can see meat inside," he called out and ran inside.
The others promptly ran in to join him...and a shutter door slid down behind them. They gasped, and the camera cut outside to show a truck driven by Chef starting up and moving away from a hole in the side of the mess hall.
"Challenge time, suckas!" Chef cackled, sliding open a small view slot and grinning at the camera and campers inside the cargo hold.
"This is so not cool!" Geoff complained, grabbing hold of a swinging piece of meat as most of the others tried to keep their balance in the moving vehicle.
"Where are you taking us?" Sierra asked Chef.
"You'll see," Chef answered with a devilish smile and snicker, sliding the viewing slot shut...and jamming his finger in the process, causing him to yelp in pain.
A flash took the scene to what appeared to be the entrance of a mineshaft. On a ledge to the right was a bulldozer and some other pieces of machinery, while to the left was not only a pile of toxic waste barrels, but also a widescreen television showing what seemed like a live feed of the host. The Chef-driven truck backed up to the entrance and with a grin the driver pushed a button that caused the hold to lift, dumping the campers out onto the dirt.
"Good. You're here. Finally," Chris said, giving them a quick look of annoyance before shifting into his typical smile. "Today's challenge is to find a Golden Chris statue in your team color," he raised his left hand and a statuette with a green base appeared with a flash and a chime, then did the same with a red-based statuette on his right, "hidden somewhere in this old abandoned mine." He motioned to the mine entrance, and the two statuettes disappeared with another flash. "First team back, wins!"
"That seems easy enough," Molly told her team confidently. "We got this, team."
"Before we go," Scarlett said, "we will need some supplies-"
She was cut off when a heavy orange backpack was tossed on her, forcefully knocking her to the ground. Everybody looked towards the truck with the others, the shot cutting over to show Chef – now in his hazmat suit – tossing the backpacks out of the back of the truck.
"Don't worry," Chris told them. "There are enough packs for everyone."
The shot cut outward just as Scott was tossed his, revealing that all the others had received packs as well. Most were lifting them with little trouble, though Dave was struggling and Scarlett was still lying on the ground.
"What'd you put in them? Rocks?" Geoff griped, reaching to open the pack's main flap.
"Up-up-up-up-up, no peeking!" Chris admonished. "Those 50 lb bags are purely for your torment," he explained, "and my amusement. Enjoy."
Scarlett was shown rooting through a side pocket and pulled out a small metal armband with a bright green triangular patch on front. "Chemical badges?" the quiet brainiac asked in concern. "Why do we need to measure our exposure to toxic waste?"
"No reason," Chris said with an impish shrug. "Except that I rented the mine out to store hazardous material." The campers all gasped.
"What?!" Trent asked in utter shock. "That is really dangerous and a hazard to our lives!"
Chris continued to be smug. "Which is why I'm in a studio right now!" Both teams immediately protested. "Relax," the devilish host told them, "it's perfectly safe. For thirty minutes," he clarified as an inset of a timer reading 30:00 appeared on the screen next to him. "When your badge turns orange," he pointed at the inset as it showed the green triangle that was on the armbands turning orange, "you have fifteen minutes left. Red is your five minute warning," the triangle turned red, "and, if you see a skull and crossbones," the entire triangle was replaced by a flashing skull and crossbones, "we'll dedicate this episode to you! But no way is it gonna come to that. A mysterious person has been down there for more than forty minutes," he said as the entire on-screen inset disappeared, "and I think they're gonna be fine!...ish..."
The shot went to the inside of the cave. It was pitch dark at first, but soon someone lit a candle to brighten the room. Their arm was silhouetted and dark, hiding the true identity of the one holding the candle.
All that could be heard was a villainous, but over exaggerated laugh.
"Now move it, peeps!" Chris told the cast, the camera cutting back outward to show them all standing with their packs.
"Can you at least give us a hint about where to find the statues?" Sammy asked with a raised eyebrow.
"Funny story," Chris said with an impish smile and sideways glance. "The statues have gone missing! Someone, or something down there must've taken them."
"Is it well lit down there?" DJ asked nervously.
"It’s a mine, bro" Chris answered, his smile almost mocking. "Pitch black all the way. There are flashlights and fireflies inside," he added, "first come, first serve. Anywho, time's a-wasting, and so are your healthy blood cells. So go!"
The scene cut inside the mine entrance as the Rats ran in with Sierra in the lead.
"We're in the lead!" she cheered, stopping right before a small elevator with an open front. "EEEHHH!" Her words echoed as her team joined her, and the five sent worried looks up just as the mine began to rumble and rocks fell down from the ceiling, burying them under.
The Maggots ran past them. "Thank you for allowing us to have the lead!" Scarlett said as Sierra and her teammates poked their heads out of the rubble.
"Nice going, Uber-Girl," Scott sneered at her.
The Maggot team entered the elevator, Scarlett closing the short gate as soon as she could.
"We've got the flashlights!" Dave said, picking up a pair of the devices from the elevator floor. An ominous creaking cut off any possible celebration, however, and moments later a cable snapped, dropping the elevator down its shaft. All five of the Maggots screamed.
They landed with a resounding crash, and the scene cut down to the total darkness at the bottom of the shaft. A few pained groans rose up, followed by Geoff saying "Is everyone okay?"
"I think so," Dave replied first.
"I'm fine," Anne Maria said next.
"The flashlights!" Scarlett exclaimed, Molky turning one on and revealing the broken elevator and scores of waste barrels scattered around the five fallen teens.
"Looks like a tunnel there," Molly said, the camera panning left to show both a normal mineshaft and a more natural-looking tunnel next to it. "Do we take it?"
She was answered by a high-pitched squealing that echoed through the tunnels and caves, lasting long enough for all five Maggots to look around in terror.
"Looks good to me!" Geoff answered, getting up and making a dash towards the more natural-looking tunnel. His teammates followed shortly after him.
The squeal faded away as the scene cut back to the top of the elevator shaft, where the five Rats had managed to get themselves free of the rubble.
"That elevator is not coming back up," Trent commented, looking down the shaft.
"We could just call it a day here," Scott impishly said.
"Or we could just shimmy down the line," DJ suggested.
"Are you sure that would work?" Sammy asked.
Trent bent down and picked up the firefly jar. "I'll go ahead and light the way," he told his team. "Then all of you can follow after me."
"That's a good idea," Sierra gave a thumbs-up.
"Here I go," Trent said in a confident tone, holding the cable with his left hand and the firefly jar under his right arm. He cried as he jumped into the shaft and slid down that cable, his declaration quickly turned into a pained shout.
The rest of the Rats shared a nervous look. "Hopefully he didn't burn his nuts," Scott said before the sound of a crash made the four of them wince.
"You can think again," Trent echoed up weakly through the shaft, causing his teammates to share another wary look.
A flash took the scene back down to the bottom of the shaft, Trent now lying on top of the broken elevator with his hands covering his groin. The rest of the Rats slid down above him, then hopped off to Trent's side.
"Are you alright?" Sammy asked, bending over her friend and offering him a hand.
"I'll get better," Trent said pitifully, taking her hand and allowing himself to be pulled to his feet.
"Where did the fireflies go?" Scott followed up.
"Over there," Sierra answered. The camera panned down and zoomed in on the upturned jar, then zoomed out as DJ picked it up.
"Looks like we all made it here in one piece," DJ said.
"We sure did," Sierra said as the shot quick-panned over to her standing near one of the tunnels. "We need to get going so the other team doesn't win."
"You, Sammy, and DJ can go on ahead. I'll stay back to help Trent on his feet," Scott said.
The Maggots were huffing and panting as the scene cut back to them entering a slightly wider portion of the tunnels. Scarlett and Molly were in front with the flashlights, Dave and Anne Maria were right behind them, and Geoff brought up the rear.
The camera zoomed in on Scarlett and Molly, who were inspecting another pair of tunnels – a normal-looking mineshaft on the left, and a jagged-edged hole on the right.
"Why are we stopping?" Dave protested.
"We hit a fork in the road," Scarlett said.
"So we have to choose between two death traps," Molly deadpanned.
"The tunnels are different," Scarlett explained. "The left one has minecart tracks and looks to be another shaft, and the right one looks like it was carved by a humongous object."
"So this mine's home to a lot of mutants?" Anne Maria finished.
"Why did we stop if we simply could've gone left?" Geoff asked.
"I don't trust rollercoasters," Molly answered. "You never know if they will fall apart."
"This path is better than the other one, so let's just roll with it," Dave concluded before they went to the shaft.
"Get back into this jar, fireflies!" Sierra ordered from the group of fireflies flying away while she was holding the jar of fireflies.
"DJ, chase the fireflies back to us so Sierra can catch them," Sammy told the gentle giant.
DJ nodded and dashed ahead. He immediately howled as the fireflies swarmed around his head, and when he returned back to the girls, Sierra slammed the jar on his head, trapping the fireflies but having them fly around the top of his head.
"This should be a good light source," Sammy smiled, much to DJ's indifference.
A flash took the focus to a pair of minecarts linked together on a downward slope as the beam of a flashlight approached.
"Yes! These carts will speed us up!" Geoff said excitedly as he led the rest of the Rats to the carts. "This'll be like riding a rollercoaster."
"This seems a lot like a death trap," Molly responded.
"This whole place is a death trap," Dave countered. "What we need is speed, so we can find our statue, get out of here, and not worry about being intoxicated."
Just then Anne Maria's badge turned from green to orange, earning a gasp from her and the others. "Anne Maria's badge is orange!" Scarlett exclaimed.
"Oh my gosh. I only have like fifteen seconds to live or somethin'!" Anne Maria cried out.
"We all have fifteen minutes. We'll be alright, Anne," Geoff comforted her.
"Oh well, that ain't so bad," Anne Maria said before filing her nails.
The shot focused in on Scarlett as her badge suddenly turned orange as well. "Everyone get in," she said before running over and diving headfirst into the back cart.
"Shotgun!" Dave called out as he hopped in the front cart with Molly.
"Looks like we're in the back," Anne Maria said happily to Geoff.
"Then let's move out!" Geoff said, grabbing her arms and pulling her to the carts. The shot cut to a close-up of the front wheel as Molly reached down and pulled away a rock that was holding them in place.
"My first time riding the rails, and I'm always unenthusiastic," Molly said.
The camera pulled back out to show all five Rats in their chosen cart, and Dave pulled a lever that made the carts start moving downhill. The Rats cheered as they rolled off-screen, but Dave quickly added "Wrong lever!" with a hint of terror in his voice.
"Thanks for staying back for me," Trent said as the scene moved to him and Scott in complete darkness, only their eyes visible. "Also, could you get your knee off my back?"
"Leaving someone to die is something I'm not into," Scott replied. "And my knee isn't on your back."
"Then...what is-? Oh! It's a flashlight," Trent clicked the device, and suddenly the two teens were visible... as well as a group of giant hairless - and presumably mutated - gophers standing on their hindlegs and screeching menacingly at them.
Scott and Trent clung to each other and screamed.
"It's great to be on this team with you guys, but if we lose, I don't mind if you vote me off," DJ told Sammy and Sierra. "We all have to go sometime."
Sammy looked taken aback by the statement. "I won't vote you off. That'd be unfair to you since you swapped teams last episode."
"And besides, we need someone that can lift a truck, and you fill the role already," Sierra said with a smile, and the three continued on with a decent amount of comfort for a few seconds more...before the badge on Sammy's arm beeped and turned orange.
DJ gasped. "Your badge! It's orange!" the brickhouse said. "You've only got fifteen minutes to live!"
Two more beeps drew their attention to DJ and Sierra's badges as they changed as well. "You do too!" Sammy cried out in panic.
"This can't be happening!" Sierra declared, dropping to her knees with an anguished look on her face. "I've never visited Paris, or gotten married legally!"
Sammy and DJ both blinked. "Uhh, what was that?" the former asked.
"I became an ordained minister on the internet, and I thought someone was into me as much as I was into them," Sierra giggled.
"We have to hurry!" Sammy said, and the three took off.
"Okay guys," Molly told her teammates as the scene cut back to them rolling down the slope and the camera zooming in on the pair in the front cart, "just keep your eyes open for that statue. It has to be around here somewhere."
"I think we have a problem," Dave tapped the indie chick on the shoulder and she perked up and looked back. The shot cut outward to show that the two carts were now on different tracks, with her and Dave in the foreground and Geoff, Scarlett, and Anne Maria in the back.
"How did that even happen?!" Scarlett exclaimed in disbelief.
The two carts exited from the tunnel into a much more open cave, with the former front cart's track curving downward while the other track sloped upward. Dave and Molly screamed as their cart dipped off-screen and promptly crashed, kicking up a bit of dust and causing the camera to shake.
The shot cut to Anne Maria, Scarlett, and Geoff as horror dawned on their faces as they looked ahead. "The track is broken!" Anne Maria cried out, the perspective moving to the front of the cart to reveal the mangled piece of track they were approaching.
"Everybody brace yourselves!" Geoff screamed, the camera moving back to a distant side-view as the second cart launched off the track, and fell straight down with its passengers screaming all the way. They quickly passed the rocky ledge where Molly and Dave lay seemingly unconscious, and landed with a splash far below.
The scene receded into a set of monitors, the leftmost one showing only static while the middle showed Sammy, Sierra, and DJ walking through the mine and the rightmost one showed an underground lake.
"Looks like our players are doomed," Chris said, the camera zooming out to reveal him and Chef standing in a control room of sorts. "Will any of them survive? I have my doubts," the host laughed. "But find out for sure when we return with more, Total! Drama! Revenge of the Island!"

2023.06.08 12:46 DiscombobulatHead Whole stomach muscle spasms since c-section F40

I (F40) had an emergency cesarian section nearly 5 years ago.
I lost feeling on my skin all over my stomach for a year or so afterwards but it’s mostly come back.
Whenever I strain my stomach muscles during intercourse or sit ups or lifting my legs while lying down, I get visible cramps over my entire stomach. It looks like it becomes a ramp to the left hand side, things can literally roll off me.
It’s incredibly tight & uncomfortable. I thought it would calm down like the loss of sensitivity but it doesn’t.
When it “corrects” it looks like ripples on my flesh creating waves that I can’t control and that make me wince in discomfort.
Any ideas?

2023.06.08 12:46 BreemanATL Wiring aftermarket amp question

Wiring aftermarket amp question
I’m wiring a Kicker Key 500.1 and for the input, can I use the factory sub wires that went to the factory amp for the input to the Kicker amp? Since this doesn’t have a Right and Left channel, should I split the + and - from the factory wiring harness to go to both Right and Left channels? Or just pick 1 channel to splice into?
If so, this would be a Low level input, correct?
Here’s the wiring diagram.

Hey M,
I really want to talk to you more.
You know I counted our interactions, it's been 4 times! They're brief, but gets me giddy and extra happy every time.
I notice you.
I wish I could have more chance to look into your eyes.
Do I like you so much? That whenever you walk near, I feel the nervousness in the pit of my stomach. I hope so much that you'd halt your steps and talk to me.
And this longing is making my eyes teary, I haven't the slightest idea why.

All of a sudden playing in creative doesn't give me any XP anymore and on the last day of the battle pass I'm trying to level up. Don't want to play Battle Royal as it doesn't give nearly as much needed. Don't want to buy levels. Hate there are no more XP challenges other than the daily ones to do. Most milestones are completed. Any advice?

2023.06.08 12:42 quarantweed Orwo Film Order Not Shipped After A Year - How I Got My Money Back

I have seen several posts on this sub from people who have ordered film from Orwo and are still waiting for the orders to be shipped. I ordered 4 rolls back in June 2022 and still haven’t received them. After nearly a year, I raised a small claim against them (MCOL) and they refunded me within days.
This is specific to the UK, and is not legal advice, but here are the steps you may wish to take to get your money back if you have been waiting a long time for your order.
Step 1: Email about your order, depending what outcome you want, either ask for a refund, or confirmation of a date when it will be shipped. Give them time to respond.
Step 2: Send a “Letter Before Action” or “Letter Before Court Claim” - you can Google templates for these. Briefly sum up all the details (when and what you ordered, previous emails etc) and ask for a refund. Give a timeframe for when you expect the refund (14 days should be enough), and detail what next steps you will take (see templates online).
Step 3: Raise a Money Claim Online (MCOL) - this is very easy to do, and there are plenty of user guides online. You will need their business address (search on Companies House). There is a £35 fee for this, but it is automatically added to the claim amount, so the defendant will have to pay if you are successful.
I had a response within a week offering to pay me a full refund. This came after months of ignoring my emails.
Again, this is not legal advice and you will need to do your own research on these steps. Good luck, and if you have any specific questions feel free to DM me.

2023.06.08 12:41 AdministrativeLab504 Great driver/tour guide more like a friend

Hello all.
I just wanted to let you all know that I have encountered a local Balinese man called Komang. He was truly amazing, knowledgeable and respectful. He can do tours, airport pickups and transportation.
I have just spent a week in Bali going to amazing places allover the island.
Some places I went to include:-
Garuda Wishna National Park in Ulluwatu Tegallalang Rice Terrace in Ubud Satria Coffee Plantation Pura Desah Batuan Temple Jadi Batik Gallery Tegenungan Waterfall
He also took us to some amazing restaurants which I would never of known about. One was called Bebek Joni Restaurant which was near the waterfall.
He can also arrange a trip for Mount Batur or Nusa Penida.
My Bali holiday was stunning but he really made the experience.
He is a young man making a living for his family. I was worried when arriving on the island but he truly made me feel comfortable.
I am happy to share his number if required, please DM me or feel free to ask any questions.
I am just trying to help him earn a living.
Thank you all.

2023.06.08 12:41 Gargantuaner How do I let her know I don’t want her to text me over the summer?

There’s been this girl (20f) that I (19m) have been crushing on (just a little bit…) for the past couple of months. I was going to ask her out but then got some clear hints that she wasn’t interested, in a group setting (see my last post). Decided then not to ask her out or ask for her number, even platonically.
Summer is just about to start, and tomorrow is the last day I’ll be here. She’ll be staying on campus for the summer and I’ll be about 3 hours away. My original plan was to just let time take its course and not have any contact with her over the summer to get over whatever this crush is. Yet, yesterday, we ran into each other on campus, where she asked for my number for if I ever wanted to play tennis or something over the summer if I’m near campus. In the moment, I happily obliged because cmon. By the way, she definitely asked platonically.
We went out separate ways, I was feeling good, but then I realized that now my entire plan has been foiled because I have a way to contact her… I know it sounds stupid but even having her number in my phone is more contact than I would’ve liked. I really don’t want her to contact me or text me over the summer because I want my feelings to fizzle out and it will seriously delay that from happening. At the same time, we are in a similar major, the same club, so I don’t want things to be awkward between us when I go back to campus.
So, tomorrow is my last day, and I’m thinking I can do one of 3 things. One, nothing. Hope that she doesn’t contact me and let the short text convo we had already get buried. Two, text her and ask if she could delete my number for the summer. If she asks why I can make up an excuse, but I would prefer not to do a Hollywood confession over text. Three, ask her to play tennis tomorrow and afterwards tell her in person the truth, that I have feelings for her and that I am under the impression that she doesn’t feel the same way, and that I just want some time to get over it so that we can forget this ever happened when I come back in the fall.
Honestly, right now I’m leaning towards option one because I think there is a decent chance that she doesn’t text me over the summer if I don’t text first. Additionally, she has already said that it makes her uncomfortable when guys confess to her, and, well, I don’t want that to happen. What do you think? Is option one the way to go?

2023.06.08 12:40 blueyelllow 43 similarities between Crash Bandicoot and Sonic Boom!

43 similarities between Crash Bandicoot and Sonic Boom!
  1. They both have a minigame in which the main character works out with their strong buff friend! Both Minigames are button mashers too, and reward you with some sort of victory animation and collectables!
  1. Both Crash 4 IAT and the Sonic Boom 3DS games reward you for collecting things and completing specific tasks within the stage! They are all gems/crystal inspired too, which is pretty cool!
  2. Both Crash and Sonic have a smart and adorable siblin sidekick!
  1. Both have legends of an ancient civilation that was supposedly very powerfull! While Crash didn't directly confirm it, I'm pretty much convinced they were the ones leaving those mysterious ruins!
  2. Some of the developers of Crash's original trilogy also worked on Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric! One of the artists, Bob Rafei, even founded the studio that would pitch it! Take a pinch of salt with the following, But I heard some of those devs later worked on the new Crash games!
  1. Both Crash Mind over Mutant and the 3DS Sonic Boom titles allow you to enter your house, even if its just to access bonus content!
  2. Uka Uka and Cortex have a very similair dynamic to that of Lyric and Cortex! Uka and Lyric are both ancient forces that manipulate a scientist (Cortex/Eggman) to free them and do their bidding!
  3. Both Sonic Boom and Crash Bandicoot have a controversial Beat 'm up title with 2 player co-op!
  1. Cortex and Eggman both got depressed at some point when realizing they were never able to beat their nemesis.
  2. The Crash n' burn prototype made by Big Red Button features very similair environment design to Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric! This is likely because Big Red Button were the developers behind Boom, and were reusing assets to speed up prototyping!
Crash N Burn footage: https://youtu.be/fjnyp_TbM9w
  1. Both Crash Bandicoot and Sonic Boom feature iconic crab enemies
  1. Both Sonic Boom and Crash Bandicoot have an overdosis of Jungle stages! Some of these games have atleast 4 different jungle worlds, some even are JUST jungle worlds!
  2. The villains of both series are humans with a PhD in mad science
  3. Both series take place on tropical islands!
  4. Crash Bandicoot and Sonic Boom are both "Semi-consistent" timeline! The wrecked robot from titans remains there up to Crash on the Run, where you recycle its parts to make helpfull machines! HypnoBot returns as a villain because it feels Tails treated it very poorly..
  5. Both Sonic Boom and Crash Bandicoot feature death routes/challenge rooms!
  6. Mojo in Titans and Orbs in Sonic Dash 2: Boom are very similair in appearence!
  1. Both Crash Bandicoot and Sonic Boom have been on an "indefinite hiatus". While Crash made an impressive comeback since, I'm afraid I can't say the same for Sonic Boom..
  2. Sonic Boom and Crash Bandicoot are both written like cartoons! Crash Bandicoot takes heavy inspiration from Looney Tunes, while Sonic Boom tries to be more like a cartoon sitcom like the simpsons!
  3. Both Crash and Boom offered an endless runner mobile game that use elements from their franchise (crates and collecting for Crash, enerbeam and combo from Boom) to improve and innovate upon the experience!
  1. Both franchises feature worlds that are inhabbited by regular animals, anthropomorphic animals, and on more rarer occasions, humans!
  2. They both have an evil dimension with purple sky!
  3. Speaking of dimensions, Team Sonic and Team Bandicoot have both traveled through different dimensions and time periods before!
  4. Both Crash Bandicoot and Sonic Boom tend to refrence Uncharted time to time because their original developers worked on that project too! Crash Bandicoot tends to keep the refrences to social media posts, but Sonic Boom went as far to refrence it directly in its redesigns!
  1. From what I heard, the original plans for the Sonic Boom brand would be a more expirimental branch to try new stuff for the Sonic franchise, which were quickly axed when RoL happend.. Either way, these plans sound very similair to the PS2 crash line-up to me!
  2. Both Amy and Crash Bandicoot have a spin attack ability!
  3. If the Crash of the Titans shorts are to be believed, then both Crash Bandicoot and Sonic Boom have a village on their island!
  1. Both Sonic Boom and Crash Bandicoot devs put in lots of effort in on getting characterization right! Some even confirmed this in official interviews!
  2. Another similarity between Sonic Boom and Crash Bandicoot is that both main characters live in a very small house near the beach!
  3. Both series had their main protagonist team up with the main antagonist several times!
  1. Sonic Boom and Crash Bandicoot games tend to have their plot written around gems and crystals! Chances are that you will have to collect these before the villain does!

  2. World map design is very similair!
  3. When there is no adventure on the schedule, the main protoganist tends to nap!
  1. Coco and Tails both have a similair attire, both wearing goggles and beltpouches!

  2. Crash and Boom!Sonic both live near an native village!
  3. Crash and Boom!Sonic are both troublemakers with a good heart! Basicially, they will save the day, but also leave a trail of destruction on their own.
  4. Crash Twinsanity and Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric are both ambitious titles that have more concept art then actual content! I'm talking mountains upon mountains of concept art! Go look it up, its a rabbit hole you wont get out of anytime soon!
  1. Meh Burger (Sonic Boom TV Show) and Dingo's Diner (Crash 4) are two infamous restaurants that ensure you never want to eat again!
  1. Its about time and Rise of Lyric had similair ambitions for their visuals: Pushing the genre futher! Unfortunately, only one of them succeeded.. :c
  2. Boom Tails was going to have a bazooka at some point! The design looks really similair to the Fruit Bazooka from Crash 3!
  1. Crash Twinsanity and Sonic Boom Rise of Lyric both have some hubworlds where you can solve puzzels and get optional rewards!

2023.06.08 12:40 cminorputitincminor Post-“recovery” relapses

I (22F) thought I had “cured” my vaginismus a while ago, when I lost my virginity. For a while, I was flying high. PIV sex was something I could enjoy and experiment with, and I loved it.
Then, I went on a year abroad and became long distance with my partner. Whenever I’d come back, it would have been months since I’d “practised”, as when I’m by myself I don’t really enjoy penetration. As a result, I’d experience pain with PIV sex. It would be possible, unlike when I very first started trying, but I’d be in pain for a long while and, once it’s been “successful” once, it feels bruised and nearly impossible to repeat.
My partner is understanding and amazing, and doesn’t carry on unless I say I’m okay with it. We’ve tried everything, going really really slow, lube, etc, and nothing works.
I suppose it’s time to break out the dilators again…but honestly, it’s got me feeling so down. It was an uphill battle overcoming the condition the first time round, and it was during a very rough time of my life - it feels pretty awful to be reminded of that. The dilators also remind me of a pretty traumatic experience I had at the doctors when I first was looking to get diagnosed; she essentially hit me repeatedly with an unlubed stick, though I told her it wasn’t going in. It definitely made my condition worse and also made me very wary of my dilators.
Has anyone else who felt they had recovered experienced the same thing? I understand it’s a journey, and there’ll be ups and downs, but I wish it didn’t depress me this much.

2023.06.08 12:39 SHIBgeneral Shibarium Theory - A Must Read

This is a long read but well worth the time, in my opinion.
A comment was made on one of our posts about Shibarium and whether it would be run on Polygon in an effort to reduce fees. A fellow member pointed out that Shytoshi had once commented that it wouldn't be run on polygon but a polygon like network inferring that the devs were attempting to develop their own layer 2 (L2) protocol. I've had some theories for a while and this really got me thinking... how does a new L2 for in with ShibaSwap tokenomics... and here's my theory. Please forgive me if I ramble at all, it's 2:30am here and I've had 5 hours of sleep in 2 days. Comment below and let me know what y'all think... am I onto something here or am I way out in left field on this?
I remember reading that Shytoshi said Shibarium would be run on a polygon like protocol. I think it would be great if the devs in fact created their own L2 protocol, but my reservation is why recreate the wheel to get the same outcome? So that got me thinking what would I do if I was the devs to set ShibaSwap ahead of the competition. I dabble in programming just so I can try and understand some of this stuff, and I think I know the answer. If I'm way off please tell me, I'm not an expert by any means. Anyways, when we talk about defi protocols, the two that really compete are uniswap V3 and Sushiswap using polygon. Both swaps are great in their own right but both have fundamental issues. V3 revolutionized the way liquidity pools operated. Traditional pools spread out your liquidity pairs from 0 to infinity, even though a significant portion of that range will never be used. V3 allowed for concentrated efficiency where a liquidity provider could concentrate their capital into specific price points reducing investor exposure to impermanent loss and increasing fees earned by over 500% in some pools (aka an investor could earn 5x the fees than a traditional liquidity pool). The downside was that gas fees are still ridiculously high on V3 because it's still using the Ethereum network. Then you have Sushiswap who built out a L2 through polygon reducing fees and increasing speed of transactions. It also allowed users to use the "matic bridge" to swap tokens between ERC20 and other networks, by a process of minting and burning tokens going back and forth. The beauty is it allowed users to access other cross chain tokens through a single interface, and best of all users paid for gas fees in their native Matic coin instead of Eth. Sushiswap also allowed users to access Kashi Lending whereby users could trade on leverage or margin, for those investors who wanted to take big swings in crypto. This also had the benefit of allowing liquidity providers to put up their tokens for margin trading, earning good returns and no exposure to impermanent loss since it was only 1 token investments. Sushiswap also developed a token vault known as BentoBox that allowed for margin trading in 1 transaction hash versus other margin trading platforms that required 3 transaction hashes, saving huge amounts on gas fees and increasing transaction speeds.
I guess what I'm getting at is Shibarium needs to be if V3 Uniswap and Sushiswap protocols had a baby. Shibarium would allow for concentrated capital liquidity pools, the ability to switch tokens across different blockchains using SHIB as gas (only utility I can see for it... change my mind), and allow users access to margin and leveraged trading, while simultaneously allowing additional revenue streams for liquidity providers and creating token vaults. If Shibarium managed to incorporate the best of both swaps, it could begin to compete for heavy volume which would bring back the billion dollar TVL numbers. But if that weren't enough, if the devs could incorporate their own algorithmic stable coin Shi into the mix as a daily transactional token, whereby users could buy and sell with it, with minimal fees, and giving sellers the security of a stable coin, and the speed of visa, it would truly begin to revolutionize crypto.
IF the devs can pull this off it would be a game changer in crypto defi platforms. SHIB would finally have a purpose, Shi would become a global currency, BONE would be highly coveted by whales who wanted governance over the future decisions of the swap, and LEASH would be the value store to bring in institutional investors, similar to what Bitcoin is. Uniswap earns $2-3M in fees per day, and Sushiswap earns $1.2M in fees per day (as of January), there's no reason ShibaSwap wouldn't be able to easily pull in $3-5M in fees through its platform if it was able to implement this plan. It's an ambitious goal but one that I think makes the most amount of sense and maybe why the devs are playing things pretty close to the vest as the saying goes because they don't want the other swaps to pivot before they release Shibarium.
Let's hear your thoughts. Anyone else have a theory on what type of protocol Shibarium will run on or benefits they should implement?
Also, if you know of other users who haven't been invited here, please help me continue to grow this page by sending them a message recommending they come check our page out. This article and others like it, are only going to have effect if we can get exposure to a larger audience. Personally I think this theory could give hope to so many who have begun losing hope in SHIB and the entire ecosystem....I know it gives me hope and in my mind it helps me begin to put the pieces of the puzzle together into a congruent picture. And it doesn't hurt that I believe if this happens, we're all going to be very well off having gotten in very early.

2023.06.08 12:38 dreamygoddess7 Self employed - minimum wage rise

Hi im hoping someone can help me
I work in a shop and am self employed so weekly have to send an invoice to my boss with my hours etc
for the year that ive been working here i get paid £9.50 an hour but the national minimum wage has gone up to £10.42 and when i first started working here my boss told me it would be national minimum wage i get paid
the shop is struggling, we are down nearly 50% of takings from last year
should i message my boss and tell him the national minimum wage has been increased and will this be refelected in my wages
or should i simply update my invoice from £9.50 an hour to £10.42
basically im unsure if i should ask for this rise or just claim it, i feel bad because i know the shop isnt taking much money at the moment and id rather be on £9.50 an hour than them having to let me go all together because i charge too much?
please help!

I have a geothermal that was put in 14 years ago and stopped working. My quotes are confusing
The technician came out and said both pumps need replaced and the fan is bent somehow?! Also the thermostat is so old you can’t read the screen anymore. So he is giving us a quote to repair for near 2000 and also giving us a quote to replace. He said that these usually only last 15-20 years and a new one is around 10000. So do we repair for 2000 or replace for 10000? Also I asked if we repair if I can put in a nest and he said they don’t work well with geothermal. Is he just trying to get me to buy their crappy climate master thermostat again? I really want a nest for the energy savings when we are away.

2023.06.08 12:38 lilxsausage MIL visiting and everything triggers me

Somehow she does all the things that grosses me out. And makes all the sounds that makes me physically cringe. I am quite sensitive to sounds that people make, especially eating. She eats with open mouth, chewing and sucking on food so load it sounds like she will suck the soul out of the food and eats so slowly I need to hide in another room until she’s done. She clears her throat and I think spits somewhere in the toilet. Makes that sound where something is stuck in her teeth and she tries to suck it out. She does her manicure on the table for food, where her nail dust will stay in the corners. Smokes near my freshly washed clothes outside.. Don’t get me wrong, she is definitely not a bad person and we get along well. I would never tell her anything to make her uncomfortable. I try to accommodate her in a way, that would secretly guide her to the less annoying direction and just leave the room until sounds are over.. Oh lord give me strength for another week.
