2020.09.28 10:24 UninformedImmigrant U wot m8? Estórias de um gajo que se mudou para o UK [Capítulo 2: Que se lixe isto, vou comprar um carro]

Olá amigos. Hoje vamos falar de carros, um assunto que me é muito querido.

Take-Aways Principais

Driving is love, driving is life

Quando tinha 14 anos os meus pais deram-me uma motinha de 50cc velhinha. Tinha dezenas de milhares de quilómetros, estava a precisar de algum trabalho, gastava muita (MUITA) gasolina, mas era minha. A partir desse dia tornei-me independente: tinha a possibilidade de ir onde quisesse, quando quisesse. Toda a cidade passou a estar acessível no espaço de minutos e não horas, e as aldeias envolventes em "meias horas" e não horas. Deixei de ter que pedir para que me levassem aos sítios, passei a ir quando queria ou precisava. Com algum dinheiro da mesada podia ir saindo com os amigos e começando a ter uma vida mais "adulta". Pouco tempo depois, ainda por volta dos 14, aprendi a conduzir carros também (em estradas privadas, claro).
O valor desta transição é absolutamente imensurável no desenvolvimento de um miúdo. Passa a haver responsabilidade. Quando tinha acidentes, o que acontece de certeza, a culpa era minha e havia consequências. O corpo doía, a mota aparecia riscada e a precisar de reparações, e o que não conseguisse fazer eu tinha que encontrar forma de pagar. Os vizinhos queixavam-se do barulho. Quando chovia chovia-me em cima, e quando fazia frio de manhã a mota não queria pegar. Mas! Quando queria ir ao Continente comprar doces podia ir, quando queria ir visitar o meu pai não tinha que pedir boleia a ninguém, e por aí fora.
A experiência de começar a conduzir muito cedo, particularmente no ambiente "controlado" de uma cidade pequena, serve também para desenvolver algum instinto (à falta de melhor expressão) para a condução, nomeadamente para as duas partes fundamentais que as constituem:
Eu não sei como tem sido ultimamente, mas o processo de obter a licença dos 14 anos há quase 20 anos atrás era ridiculamente simples. Eu sinto que isso não é necessariamente mau, pois reduz a barreira de entrada à condução numa altura em que ainda é possível ganhar aquele "jeito" para a condução sem se tornar uma coisa estrangeira e forçada. Tudo somado, foi facilmente uma das experiências que mais serviram para me fazer crescer naquela altura, e algo que pretendo certamente incutir em infelizes filhos que alguma vez venha a ter.
Quando fiz 18 anos deram-me um carro (muito) velhinho para as minhas voltinhas em Coimbra, para onde iria estudar. Mais uma vez, é um privilégio: era muito velhinho, o seguro era baratinho e o imposto também, mas mesmo assim nem toda a gente conseguia ter o seu próprio carro. Por ter carro nunca precisei de usar os autocarros muito regularmente, o que me permitiu poupar noutras coisas: podia fazer as minhas próprias mudanças quando mudava de casa, podia participar em actividades extra-aulas com mais facilidade, etc etc. Fui quase sempre designated driver, mas sempre foi uma responsabilidade que aceitei com muito gosto: é bom de ter a oportunidade de levar os meus amigos a casa em segurança no fim de uma noite de castanhada. Se eu próprio quisesse participar na castanhada, a Maria normalmente voluntariava-se para trazer o carro para casa.
Ter um carro velho, sem modernices como sensores (ahah), GPS, rádio (exacto), direcção assistida ou ABS, permitiu-me fazer certas coisas. Com a liberdade de experimentar, pude tentar fazer várias reparações eu próprio; notavelmente, o disco de embraiagem que neste momento está nesse carro, que ainda anda, fui eu que o coloquei lá. Pude também fazer uso de alguns baldios que há em Coimbra e arredores para aprender a controlar o carro em situações mais extremas; uma espécie de curso de condução em condições adversas do homem pobre. O que é que acontece se tiver que fazer uma travagem de emergência em piso escorregadio? Como compensar a falta de ABS caso as rodas tranquem? E se a traseira deslizar?
Conduzir, para mim, não é um privilégio nem uma mania nem um capricho. É uma das pedras basilares da forma como lido com o dia-a-dia, uma forma inalienável de independência. O transporte pessoal é uma extensão do meu corpo e conduzir é um escape muito, muito importante.

Viver no campo sem carro

Durante os primeiros 6 meses que passei no UK tive que viver sem transporte próprio; apenas conduzi carros alugados por curtos períodos para ver casas ou fazer mudanças. Usei esses meses para me ambientar, deixar passar o primeiro inverno, estabelecer-me no trabalho e tratar de todas aquelas burocracias que discutimos no capítulo anterior. Aguentei todo esse tempo graças ao facto de a empresa para quem trabalho oferecer um serviço de shuttles para funcionários, que liga o campus às cidades e vilas mais próximas, numa das quais eu vivo. Isto permitiu-me não me preocupar com transportes para o trabalho durante meses, o que foi uma benesse incrível.
Estes primeiros meses foram de adaptação, de exploração e de cometer erros parvos. De aprender a perceber os Ingleses, como se comportam nas coisas mais básicas, e de me tentar misturar com eles com sucesso. Eu optei por viver no campo (i.e. significativamente fora das cidades grandes aqui à volta) por várias razões:
Tirando as viagens casa-trabalho-casa, a minha mobilidade estava muito reduzida. Ir a qualquer lado envolvia caminhar uma distância suficientemente grande para me chatear, no mínimo até à estação dos comboios e depois outro tanto onde quer que fosse. Ir às compras era um pau no cu porque tinha que as arrastar pelo monte acima até casa, pelo menos até descobrir que os supermercados entregam em casa por um preço muito muito razoável.
E depois há a rede de transportes. Eu adoro andar de comboio, mas infelizmente aqui é impossível. Nós somos dois, e ir à cidade mais próxima custa-me, pelo menos, umas 20 libras em bilhetes de comboio. Para comparação, demoro uns 25min a chegar lá de carro (mais ou menos o mesmo) e gasto talvez 2 ou 3 libras de combustível. Já para não falar no congestionamento a certas horas, em que não só os bilhetes são estupidamente mais caros, como temos que fazer a viagem toda em pé. Viagens grandes então nem se fala! Eu quero ir à Escócia ver se encontro a Nessie, e a viagem de comboio para 2 pessoas, ida e volta, ia-me custar facilmente 1000£!! Os comboios em si são espectaculares; fazem os nossos velhinhos Intercidades parecer ainda mais velhos e merdosos do que são mesmo.
Aos autocarros aplicam-se comentários semelhantes, com algumas agravantes. Não só são caros como tendem a não andar a horas, são populados com as pessoas mais nojentas que se consiga imaginar, e devem ser limpos à saída da fábrica e nunca mais.
Se calhar sou eu que sou maniento, se calhar acham que sou um snob mal habituado que anda de cu tremido desde cachopo, se calhar acham que devia era viver uns anos sem carro para ver o que é bom. Eu cá acho que paguei as minhas favas e agora mereço andar de carro até me doerem os joellhos. Eu antes quero poder ter carro e viver deslocado da cidade, do que viver no centro e andar no meio do magote enfiado em autocarros bolorentos e metros a cheirar a mijo. São escolhas. Não vejo grande apelo na "vida cultural" da cidade, da qual até posso desfrutar pegando no carrito e indo lá ver o que é o quê.

Comprar um carro

Um dia destes, com a conta do banco recheada de dinheiro de devolução de impostos, decidi que estava na hora de comprar um carro. Andei a ver carros novos e usados, e decidi que o hot hatch era para mim. Algo na vizinhança das 20000 libras, 10 pagas à entrada e outras 10 pagas em prestações durante uns 3 anos. Parecia-me razoável, estava bem dentro dos limites do que podia pagar e não me impedia de ir chegando aos meus objectivos de poupança.
Marquei um test drive e apanhei um comboio até ao stand. Chegado lá, aproveitei para fazer todas as perguntas e mais alguma ao vendedor, entre as quais como funcionaria o financiamento. Aí ele entregou as más notícias: com menos de 3 anos de residência, é virtualmente impossível conseguir financiamento para um carro, muito menos naqueles valores. Chateei-me, chamei um taxi e fui-me embora sem muito mais conversa. Fiquei fodido. Ainda verifiquei junto do meu banco com esperança da que eles, sabendo quanto ganho, etc, fizessem um jeitinho. Os valores a que me podia candidatar era muito mais baixos do que alguma vez funcionariam, por isso desisti do financiamento. Pela primeira vez na minha vida, ia comprar um carro a pronto.
Passei umas semanas a estudar melhor o mercado de usados. Andei a ver no autotrader [1], aparentemente o site mais popular de anúncios de carros. A primeira coisa em que reparei foi o quão mais baratos os carros são aqui que em Portugal. Eu sempre achei os carros usados caríssimos em Portugal, mas isto trouxe à luz o quão roubado o tuga médio é quando compra um carro. Para terem uma ideia, um familiar meu tinha comprado um carro por 5000€ (valor ajustado ao mercado) pouco antes de me mudar para cá. O mesmo carro, mesmo ano, mesmo trim level, com menos quilómetros, aqui custava 750£. Telefonei-lhe a gozar com ele, foi incrível.
Então decidi que o meu orçamento seria os tais 10k que pretendia originalmente dar como entrada. Deixei de parte a ideia do hot hatch para poder comprar algo mais recente, pois queria um carro com 2 ou 3 anos no máximo. Este limite não era tanto por cagança, mas porque queria apostar mais na fiabilidade do que noutros aspectos. Um carro mais novo, com menos quilómetros, tem uma probabilidade menor de me dar problemas no início, o que me compra tempo para conhecer o panorama de oficinas aqui à volta, o que esperar do seguro, etc. Pequeno, novo, simples, fiável; fui à caça
Há um conjunto de coisas a ter em atenção quando se procurar um carro usado:
Curiosamente, acabei por comprar o meu carro no mesmo stand onde fui antes, ao mesmo vendedor que me tinha entregue a triste notícia sobre o financiamento. Ele ficou impressionado por me ver de volta, mas a vida tem dessas coisas. Apenas fiz um test drive, e comprei imediatamente o carro. Pode parecer precipitado, mas:
bom negócio. Um bocadinho acima do valor de mercado segudo o autotrader, mas nada de muito preocupante.
Ficou marcado ir levantar o carro dali a 2 dias, e entretanto teria de tratar do seguro. Eu já tinha feito algumas simulações de seguros, portanto sabia o que esperar, mas mesmo assim achei caro: quase 1000£ ano para o seguro de um carro pequeno. Entretanto tenho explorado melhor o assunto, e parece que o mercado de seguros no UK sofre de graves problemas:
Para tornar o sistema verdadeiramente insultuoso, há seguradoras que oferecem potenciais descontos se instalarmos no carro um tracker da sua eleição [4]. Ou seja: cobram o que quiserem e ainda querem saber onde ando e a que velocidade ando, e se eu conduzir "bem" segundo lá os critérios deles, fazem-me um desconto; se não gostarem da minha condução sobem-me o preço. Naturalmente, mandei-os passear e paguei mais por um seguro sem tracker. Honestamente, acho a mera proposta de me deixar espiar por um potencial desconto no seguro nojenta: é o reflexo de um sistema profundamente partido. Ninguém diz a um português o que é conduzir "bem", caralho.
O seguro do carro trata-se todo online, o que para mim é muito estranho, e até se pode verificar online se o carro tem seguro [5]. Os comparadores de preços [6] são nosso amigos, mas cuidado com eles por vezes; já li casos de pessoas que tiveram apólices canceladas por tentarem muitas comparações com detalhes ligeiramente diferentes (infelizmente não encontrei uma ref para esta, mas penso que foi no /LegalAdviceUK). Correndo o risco de me repetir, o sistema de seguros auto aqui está profundamente desregulado e a precisar de alguém com tomates para o resolver. Certamente não será o BoJo.
No dia em que levantei o carro:
Dias depois recebi o novo V5C em meu nome. O V5C é uma espécie de livrete, ou "documento único" se formos modernos, mas ao contrário do livrete nunca deve andar no carro pois é muito fácil transferir o V5C para outro nome sem intervenção do dono anterior. Mais curiosamente ainda, o V5C não prova propriedade do carro, apenas quem é o "registered keeper" dele. Por outras palavras, a minha única forma de demonstrar que sou dono do carro é a factura que me deram quando o comprei. Neat.
Sentei-me no carrito, carreguei no botão para arrancar o motor pensando "que modernice", e ele lá acordou. Curiosamente, só nesta altura é que me ocorreu: se calhar não era uma má ideia ir ler sobre as regras da estrada aqui. Sorte a minha, o governo tem a totalidade do Highway Code [8] disponível no site, e tenho-o lido aos bocadinhos. Mais sobre isso no próximo capítulo.
Curiosamente, não é preciso termos connosco nenhuma documentação quando conduzimos [9]. Os Ingleses têm uma abordagem diferente da nossa no que toca à documentação; é tudo guardado em bases de dados do governo, e eles só precisam de verificar a matrícula contra a base de dados para saber se está tudo bem. O condutor apenas precisa de ter a carta de condução, e alguma identificação por conveniência. Eu pessoalmente costumo ter o cartão de cidadão e a carta de condução. Idealmente teria o passaporte, mas evito andar com o passaporte no bolso, e o cartão de cidadão deve ser mais do que suficiente como identificação até no mundo pós-brexit. Na realidade penso que a carta de condução por si chegaria, mas mais vale estar seguro né?
Virei proprietário do meu próprio veículo! Mais um, porque nunca vendi o bolinhas que está em Portugal.

Conclusão

Tenho que confessar que estou impressionado pela positiva com a experiência que foi comprar um carro no UK. O processo foi muito mais simples do que esperava, e praticamente tudo se tratou no stand na hora da compra. Até o seguro podia ter ficado logo resolvido, mas eu preferi fazer em casa com mais algum controlo sobre isso. Nota-se que é um sistema muito mais polido que em Portugal, pelo menos na minha experiência.
A minha relação próxima com a condução começa a entrar, infelizmente, em rota de colisão com o status quo: vivemos num mundo que cada vez menos suporta o transporte individual. Há gente a mais no mundo, e há carros a mais no mundo, há fumo a mais no mundo. Na realidade, há "a mais no mundo" de quase tudo o que é mau, pessoas incluídas. Sinto que esta minha necessidade de conduzir vai brevemente bater de frente contra a necessidade global de cortar no transporte individual a favor de transportes colectivos. Até lá, vou aproveitar as espectaculares estradas de campo aqui à volta, particularmente a horas em que não estejam completamente congestionadas. Fiquem de olho, o próximo capítulo vai falar sobre a experiência que é conduzir no UK, e como é que difere do que eu esperava.
Desta feita apontei para um post mais curto que o anterior, que essencialmente parte este assunto em dois: este primeiro cobre o processo de como (e porquê) comprei o carro, e o seguinte vai cobrir a experiência de conduzir em si. Notei que o engagement no capítulo 1 foi menor que nos posts anteriores, e suspeito que ler uma epopeia tão longa não ajuda; digam-me nos comments se tenho razão.
Abraços, e obrigado por virem à minha TED talk.

Sprout in E6s

This poor sprout SAM had a mixture of 460, bought 480 pieces, and one 500 belt from e5s all with no materia and he didn't do positionals. He seemed to be struggling to learn mechs for e6s, not that I blame him that fight sucks to learn. Tbh he comes off as the person that had a friend that made them get the game, bought them a skip, and they decided to do raiding without any prior knowledge of what you need for raiding.
tl;dr skip potions for new players sucks thanks for coming to my ted talk.

2020.09.28 09:38 Goleg_The_Great Improving the Constellation series.

It's been said that there are no plans to rework the Constellation series in the near future. However there still are a few glaring issues with the ship that will at some point require some attention, so it seems probable that another rework will eventually take place somewhere down the road.
Besides the obvious bugs and quirks**, what seems to be the most hotly debated issue among the community has to do with the P52 Merlin bay at the rear of the ship. Some truly like it and eagerly await it's functionality, while others (myself included) don't see much of a point in having a snub fighter at all.
There have been many suggestions made on what could be done with the snub fighter bay, ranging from a dedicated engineering section all the way to a guest bathroom. But the Constellation is a multipurpose, Jack-of-all-trades ship, and it deserves a Jack-of-all-trades solution...
...Which is why I propose that when CIG finally gets around to giving the iconic Constellation series another look, they consider replacing the snub fighter bay with a modular bay instead, similar to what they plan to do with the Retaliator base model. This bay could replace the entire room at the rear of the ship with different options, such as:
-Prisoner holding cell
-Autodoc/Medical room
-Tail gun turret
-Armory
-Captain's Quarters
-Expanded cargo storage
-Expanded fuel tank
-P52 Merlin snub fighter bay (factory pre-installed)
This change would compliment the Constellations multirole nature by allowing some extra flexibility, while also giving snub fighter enthusiasts the option to keep the Merlin on board.
Let me know what you think, and if there are any other improvements you would like to see to the Constellation series.
Thank you for coming to my TED Talk.
**Bugs & Quirks include: MFDs, shields, missiles, bottom turret, S5 gun mounts, lockers, docking ports, struts, paper maché engines, etc.

2020.09.28 09:26 dollveinz Psychotic alcoholic tries to find love haha

So I don’t usually date, for obvious reasons, but I been on tinder lately. Got lonely. Been talking to a few girls from there. One seemed really promising, we had the same fucked up humor & I just really liked her. Then she wants to video chat. Oh no. Crippling social anxiety. I also have drug induced psychosis so I hear voices all the time. Anyway on this particular night I was having a bad time with the psychosis, believed that everything I did was being recorded & watched by my ‘enemies’. I told her to give me an hour ‘so I can cook’, really I sprinted to the bottle shop while talking to myself out loud like those schizophrenic homeless people you see. Slam about 15 shots of Windsor gin (I am royalty) within this hour, vomit, keep slamming shots. Eventually she calls, I remember very little but this call lasted an hour because she is a saint. I was talking about how the psych ward was the “only place I ever felt I fit in”. At the end I’m pretty sure I started crying and abruptly hung up. For some reason she kept messaging me for a few days but I could tell there was no chance so I quit replying & she never hit me up. Oh well. Went on a date a few days later with another girl, on Valium & gin. Ranted about Socrates (I did philosophy in high school & start thinking I’m a genius while intoxicated). Thanked her for coming to my ted talk. She actually likes me, but the voices say that’s only because I was altered which I can’t argue with. Now I’m back in aa & on seroquel & really innapropriatley happy, which with my luck probably means I’m going manic or something. The voices keep saying either “psychosis is coming for you” or “cirrhosis is coming for you”, I can’t quite make out which. The best part is it’s actually both. haha.

2020.09.28 08:14 Eff3ction No Meme, just some text about playing and tips to listen to those around you.

Earlier tonight there was a match. Our common task was Admin Swipe.
Cyan was standing in Admin next to Black, at the wires panel.
Now anyone familiar knows you either have SWIPE, or WIRES when there is only ONE common task selected.
I called a meeting and asked Cyan what he was doing. He said the electrical box to fix lights.
...in Admin.
I said A: We dont have wires as a task, and you are faking a task we literally can not have.
Then he said he was fixing lights. IN ADMIN.
Once again I said you can not fix lights in Admin, when lights go off that box doesnt light up, you just told the whole lobby you are doing a task that you literally could not possibly have.
I spelt it out repeatedly as crystal clear as possible within a 120 second voting time, and people STILL DIDNT vote him out because "I dont understand what you are saying".
This game is very simple, and when an argument is laid out in front of you that concise, listen to the people around you, you might learn a thing or two, and the BETTER that people are at the game, the MORE FUN and harder it is! I want everyone to get better, its what makes it interesting!
Im sure very few people will read this, and if you do and dont understand it, read up on task and how they work. Its easier to find the imps then you think!

Professor, if you read this, you know I had you. You seemed fun though before you got mad and left if you want to play a few rounds.

Thanks for coming to my TedTalk.

2020.09.28 08:09 Hp_TheChao Small Addition to the new Golden Freddy Theory

Ok, so I am not absolutely sure that MatPat didn’t say this already but I think we were wrong about the past meaning of candy cadet’s stories. I think that the stories were trying to allude to golden Freddy having multiple children in him. This might be a small stretch but each story concludes with things coming together but not completely working. This is like the stitch wrath and golden Freddy who don’t always have complete control of there animatronic, but this is just a speculation. A GAME SPECULATION. Thank you for attending my TED talk.

2020.09.28 08:02 AppleSauceKing421 Happy Birthday to me!

So my birthday is September 28. I’m 14 and that means I have existed for 14 years on this god forsaken planet. It was dreadful, but I think I’ll keep going. I don’t know what to do now, so maybe I’ll give some advice about life.
•Don’t drink water after eating something spicy, it makes it worse
•Believe it or not, fish do not swim in their own pee. Their waste is similar to that of birds. Fish waste is a mix of pee and poo, so it’s kind of a solid, therefore it sinks to the bottom of the ocean.
•Flat boobs are just as good as big boobs
•Eventually we are all going to die, so suicide is just early access, but all jokes aside, suicide is nothing to laugh about. There are people who love and care about you. It’s not worth to let go of your life. No one gets an advantage
•The Big Bang can be renamed The Large Smash
•Even if 0.0001% of the worlds population cares about you, that’s still around 700,000 people who love you.
•Wheat Tostitos are the best kind, change my mind.
Welp that’s all I got. Imma just go play Super Mario 64 while singing Happy Birthday to my self.
Cya, and thanks for coming to my Ted Talk:)

2020.09.28 07:58 Stranfort Zelda used the pillars, divine beats and guardians to rebuild and retake Hyrule.

Take my theory with a grain of salt, I don’t know as much as I should about the lore. Expand upon it if you want.
After the collapse of the central government of Hyrule kingdom, the remaining races of the reto, goron, zora, and gerudo all went into lockdown and a period of isolationism followed, along with all the scattered Hylians in the villages of Hateno, Kakariko and Lurelin. With exceptions of traveling merchants from the different races to have some semblance of trade.
I was sometimes puzzled while playing BOTW that since the different races had their own armed militaries, consisting of guards, and in the trailer to hurried warriors, you can see the zora having an army to fight off the monsters. I wondered why they never assembled an army to March to hyrule castle? Apart from that, why wouldn’t they realign with link with the sword to seal the darkness and assemble a force to storm the castle?
It’s my hypothesis. Emphasis on the word hypothesis, that after Zelda returned, she went after the Devine beasts, as she mentioned in the ending scene, in order to retake control of them and also attempt of taking control of the pillars to produce more guardians. Why? In oder to reconquer Hyrule and consolidate her power as queen.
The reason the other races wouldn’t want to help Zelda, even after 100 years, would be to live in independence from Hylian authority. Their all different races with distinct cultures. But when one race reigns supreme, it’s likely that their bed forced to be submissive to Hylian cultural belief systems.
Therefore Zelda’s reason for going to the Devine beats in the end would probably be to take control of them and restore the status quo of Hyrule kingdom a century ago.
Back to the pillars, she could have also used them to create new loyal guardians. There wouldn’t be any risk since Ganon’s power wouldn’t return for thousands of years. And likely she would use the guardians with the mechanical claws to rebuild the old central Hyrule infrastructure as seen in the gameplay demo of Hyrule Warriors.
Once again. I can be easily proven wrong, since I’m not as familiar with the lore as other fans. And the developments of the upcoming games in lore can put holes in my theory as to what would happened to Hyrule after the events in BOTW.
Thanks for coming to my Ted Talk.

2020.09.28 07:30 jesieleah on dennis nilsen (sorry for long post)

i’m really just discovering this guy recently which is surprising for a number of reasons, but mostly because the new show with david tenant brought up some stuff for my mum.
she grew up in muswell hill area, and she went to school across the street from muswell hill address (cranely gardens one.) she was six when he was arrested so she doesn’t actually remember him, like, personally, but her primary and secondary school friends lived on the same street as him, and they used to walk past his old house all the time and her friends would tell her about the bodies they found in the basement and stuff (it scarred her a little bit.)
her friends mother remembered the smell and would talk about it with an appropriate amount of detail for 13 year old girls, but she always said that house seemed so evil. she never wanted to be on that street at night. she looked up a picture of the house and went “oh dreadful, this is bringing so much back.” apparently even just the street really struck her and stuck with her.
i was wondering if anyone who’s had ever been to sites associated with these types of things, do you feel a lingering presence there? we are a rather spiritual and sensitive family, and my mother’s always had a gift for discerning things about places, but yeah. it was interesting!
she also said her friends parents used to let her older brother walk home alone at night past that house all the time while dennis was still active and always wondered how his parents felt after finding out who and what he was.
anyways, we talked about it again the other day and she said her parents (my grandparents) knew a young man who was almost a victim. he was pretty new to the country and he met dennis at a bar (he was lonely and a little too naive for his own good) and went home with him. according to one of my families members i spoke to about it, after a whole he started to feel really uneasy, knew something was up, and ran out of the house when dennis turned his back.
i know it seems like everybody’s mom has a ‘ted bundy’ story these days, but i was also curious if anyone else had stories like this?? call it a morbid curiosity but it’s kind of really interesting.

The video mainly talked about the hierarchies of Chimpanzees (and bonobos) and their relationship with food, turn they mentioned what would happen if they fought with another herd of their own Species, mentioned something about it that they did to males and females After they won , in the same way in the video they mentioned about the herds of hyenas and what happened in the same case of a confrontation, The video was animated, did not feature photos or videos of the animals in real life, and was probably a ted talk with animations, If you do not know the answer but you know about this type of YouTube channels, I ask you to please write it to me, you can help me in my search or to know more (sorry for my English and thanks)

The video mainly talked about the hierarchies of Chimpanzees (and bonobos) and their relationship with food, turn they mentioned what would happen if they fought with another herd of their own Species, mentioned something about it that they did to males and females After they won , in the same way in the video they mentioned about the herds of hyenas and what happened in the same case of a confrontation, The video was animated, did not feature photos or videos of the animals in real life, and was probably a ted talk with animations, If you do not know the answer but you know about this type of YouTube channels, I ask you to please write it to me, you can help me in my search or to know more (sorry for my English and thanks)

2020.09.28 07:16 13Keres Controversial opinion but LGD should not be favorites against R7...at all.

Not even a fan of LLN or R7, just a casual observer of play-ins so far, and I actually came in with really high expectations for LGD and was routing for them throughout LPL playoffs, so I can say 100% for sure that I am not biased in my opinion. People keep saying that R7 is going to lose against LGD almost for sure and then LGD are going to beat 2nd seed from Group A to advance to groups stage, and I frankly find this completely ridiculous.
Despite the fact that LGD got their first wins today, not only were both wins against the same team, that team finished last and is now snug in their beds at home in Japan, NOT ONLY THIS but LGD looked even worse against V3 then they did against PSG and R7. Against PSG, sure, PSG got the better of LGD in several plays, but it was kind of competitive in a sense and LGD looked at least a little cohesive--same can also kind of be said for the game against R7. The thing about the game vs. R7 is that LGD had a chance to win then really, really threw. However, in LGD's wins against V3, LGD looked like a plane being flown by a 5 year old while all of the passengers scream in panic and the actual pilot smokes a cigar and proceeds to lock himself in the bathroom--V3 just happened to have a smaller plane. However, R7 giga, fucking, smurfed on UOL and made it look like TES was playing INTZ. They've looked better and better in their last two games.
Despite the clear evidence for why LGD should definitely not be moving on to the group stage even if they do wind up beating R7, we have the mythical "Bo5 LGD" that is going to proceed to smurf on everyone, right? Don't get me wrong, Bo5 LGD is definitely a thing, but your Bo5 form being better than your Bo1 form is absolutely not going to net you that Bo5 win if you continue to remain shit. LGD aren't going to magically get good. I don't care if people believe that LGD will win, but I really mind when people act like it's a sure thing and that "R7 has had a good run" just because we're for some reason unable to accept that LGD doesn't HAVE TO make it out of play-ins for the world to not end. Thank you for coming to my TedTalk.

2020.09.28 07:02 Scratchbrainstormer A rant about Ballet

(I know Reddit might not be the best place for this or you all might think these problems are really dumb so you don’t have to read it’s more that I just needed to get it off my chest I guess)
I’ve never really doubted that I wanted Ballet to be my entire life until now. I know this might just be a symptom of being in quarantine but let me elaborate.
I was never the right “fit” for ballet. Even though I started around age 6 or 7 every studio told me that my body wasn’t right (even though I was a boy.) I stayed at a studio that constantly degraded me and told me I would never be good enough and that I should just quit and all that stuff and they even told me that my injury (osgood schlatter) was fake and was just to have an excuse for my “terrible work.”
That was the last straw of course so my mother made the executive decision to make me leave that place (even though I sort of wanted to stay just to be with friends and because it was a reputable studio) and I moved to a larger studio connected to a company.
I worked so hard here. I did extra hours, I got better and better roles, and I was improving a bunch as well as my flexibility. The people from the old studio and my old friends sorta turned against me, I became a super shy person because they were being super toxic and probably telling lies or something behind my back.
Now, I have gotten away from those people, I’m flexible and strong enough to be on a path of a professional, and even getting compliments from some of the best teachers around the world. I’m not trying to brag here because of what I’m about to say... now it sorta feels pointless.
It feels like I put the rest of my life on hold or something, school and friendships haven’t been my priority for a long time. I still want to become a professional right now but nothing seems to satisfy me anymore like it’ll ever be enough for me and I now how terrible that will make me feel.
The other option would be to of course go to college which I haven’t even considered in a long time since I was so stuck in this path. My grades aren’t bad but nothing that would look super impressive going into applying, the only thing that might make people impressed would be ballet.
I also feel bad because my community has supported me so much. I know my parents will support whatever I choose but it feels hard to even bring this up to them because they’ve payed for tuition and let me keep dancing when they had their doubts this would turn into anything. I’ve broken away from those horrible friends at my old studio but my new ones would probably feel hurt if I quit too because there’s been many times where they’ve wanted to hang out and I have too but ballet has gotten in our way since I always assumed it was the most important thing in my life.
I want to end my rant by clarifying that I still love ballet, it’s my favorite art form and probably forever will be. It’s more that I suddenly realized that it didn’t have to be my one path and get in the way of other things i enjoy which is what it’s doing right now.
Wow that was a big weight of my shoulders so thank you for reading this far and coming to my TED talk lol.

2020.09.28 06:53 pdoole18 I'm on the cusp of maximizing my potential, but I'm struggling to hold on. I need guidance.

First ever reddit post, so lmk if there is a more appropriate subreddit to place this question/post.
Little background, 19 yr Male, in my sophomore year of college and going for a Bachelors in Mechanical Engineering.
This summer, I had what could be described as a serious epiphany about what I was doing in my life. I've always been smart and on the more academically gifted side of things, but be it a result of my age, immaturity, laziness, or a combination of all three, I never truly applied myself. I did the bare minimum, and had no foresight as to what my performance in school, be it in the classroom or through clubs and other activities, would mean to my future. I didn't want to earn greatness, i just wanted to be great. The best example of this was I was always good at tests, but never good at homework. When it came to tests, i relied on my born intelligence to do well, but with homework, i didn't try, if i did it at all. I couldn't see the value in doing homework. Theres no success or praise in doing practice problems , so why do them at all? The first time I felt I may not be maximizing my potential was when it came time to apply for colleges. I had good grades, (3.8 gpa) and a really good SAT (1520) but when it came time to write about club involvement, extra-curricular projects, leadership experience, etc, i had nothing.
Fast forward to my freshman year of college, and the same pattern, although not as bad as high school, emerged. I would give the bare minimum effort on homework, i didn't join any clubs, and coasted off of talent to keep good grades. Then covid hit. All of a sudden, i was sent back home, classes were online, and i now had plenty of free time. So in the end of March, while doing classes online, i got what was supposed to be a part time job at Fedex to make some cash on the side. What it ended up becoming was 40+ hours a week, while i was trying to do college online, and i got a taste of what truly being overwhelmed was. It was the first time ever where when i told my teacher i didn't have time to do homework, it was actually true. The next two months was a never ending cycle of 4 hours of sleep, school from 8am-noon, homework from noon-4, a nap from 4-5, and then work from 6pm-2am. I ended up choosing pass/fail for my classes, and worked that job until i had enough money saved to not have to work the next school year. And then i had a month of no school or work, and thats when i had my realization.
I knew that i never wanted to be in the same position i was at Fedex again. Making minimum wage and doing god-awful work that means nothing. Around the same time, I started to follow and listen to guys like Jocko Willink and David Goggins. I wanted what they had achieved. hey seemed to have a death grip on life and full control of all their efforts. What was it that made guys like that so goddamn alpha, assertive, powerful, successful, disciplined? I found Andy Frisella, Ryan Michler, and other people that seemed to have found a way to maximize their potential, something i had never done. Over the period of a month, I read Goggins, Jocko's and Ryan Michlers book and had been reborn. I took a hard look at what i was, what i wasted, what i could be, and decided that there was no way to achieve my own greatness unless i chose to stop being average, and start being a savage. I started training for marathons, continued to read, and for the first time felt the full magnitude of what i was capable of, and then proceeded to push the limit even harder.
Flash forward to now. I've been studying Spanish again, maintain a small amount of reading and still marathon training. At school, I've joined clubs (and am starting one), made it my goal to excel in every class, began researching internships and revamping my resume, and am learning python, Auto Cad and any other skills i can to maximize my chances of receiving an internship next summer. For the first time in my life I feel as though i can see over the mountain top and am truly on the path to success.
The only problem is, regardless of how high i may have climbed, i feel as though the ground beneath me is waiting to cave in and send me straight back to the bottom. I have all the tools i need, and am making all the right choices, but Im lost.
This is all uncharted territory for me. Right now, Im brute forcing all of these tasks off of willpower and determination, but I have no idea how to make this feel natural. I Feel old habits like procrastination and social media creeping in as a way to cope with stress, and it scares the shit out of me. I watched Stephen Duneier's Ted Talk on small changes and wish i knew exactly what he did to make achieving such great feats so easy. I need order. Structure.
I guess what im really asking for is what other people have used or done to maintain order while maintaining high levels of performance and productivity. Be it a book you read that gave you strategies, a journal made to keep your tasks in order, or something else, I don't want all the progress I've made to go away. I can feel it in my core, I'm so damn close to having it all in order, and breaking away from the last few old habits that cursed me when i was younger, But i have no clue how to do it.

2020.09.28 06:43 HandOfHook Thoughts about the new talents in Shattered

I played a bit in the new beta and had some thoughts on the talents that Evan added recently.
I think it is a great idea, especially not to make them too overpowered. Makes it difficult though to think of things that help but won't be making or breaking a run.
Right now there seem to be categories of talents, talents that trigger when eating, some trigger when equipping unidentified items and some are more class specific like the barkskin for the huntress.
Out of these I think the identifying talents are the least useful. I know these are just level 1 talents and there will be more interesting ones down the line but right now I see very little reason to invest points into those.
All other options are useful for the entire game, e.g. gaining extra health when eating for the warrior. But once you identified all potions that identifying talent for the warrior is useless. Same for the scroll identifying talent of the mage and so on.
I actually think it is a good way of dealing with the problem of not making talents too powerful. Implement them in a way that they stop being useful in later game stages. But that would mean all level 1 talents should be designed that way, otherwise I think people will go for the ones that show lasting effects.
Well, that's that, thanks for coming to my TED talk.

2020.09.28 06:39 Shotgunnerrr I've found the myth of the wholesome award

It's because reddit started giving us free awards and the chance of getting a wholesome award is 60% and the second thing is some people don't even know what is a wholesome award. Thanks for coming to my Ted talk
