2021.01.26 06:10 Local_affront_to_God The meek shall inherit the Earth
Have you ever heard the phrase "The meek shall inherit the Earth"? On paper, it sounds comforting, that you're patience and good nature shall be rewarded with everything you could ever want. Nothing wrong here, right? However, I've been looking deeper and, I must admit, it's right. The meek shall inherit the Earth, but not as we know it. The world was never changed through inaction. Alexander the Great didn't get his name from through gardening and waiting for his enemies to find him, rather he struck all who opposed him, taking action, wasting not a second of time, and what did he get? He became the Hegemon of all of Greece, the King of Egypt, brought the Persians to their knees, crushed the Syrians, humbled Phoenicia, and brought his men to what was supposed to be the ends of the Earth. After all of that, as he laid dying on his bed, his guard asked him who would inherit this empire. Alexander used all the strength he had, sat up, and shouted "The Strongest!" He then promptly died, leaving the world a far different place than that of his father and for the better. The Hellenization of the Middle East and North Africa brought great progress, having torn down a fully corrupt and limiting system. But there is one man he outshines our dear Alexander III: Gaius Julius Caesar. He ended the most corrupt republic known to man, conquering the Gauls, bringing stability to his empire, and how was he repaid? With betrayal, those close to him thought he was a weak man, a slave to the senate. What did do respond? Did he lay down his arms and surrender? No, he crossed the Rubicon and shattered the traitor's men, and sent them running for their lives. He tracked them down across the fringes of his empire and slaughtered them like sheep. He returned a hero, a man to live forever in the hearts of men. But it was not to last. His closest friends stabbed him to death, and what were his last words? Was begging to live on his knees and forfeit everything he made for himself? No. He simply asked "Et tu Brute?" He was just sad to see even his most "loyal" friend, Brutus, joining in. But what does this have to do with anything I've come to realize? It's that world has been forged and progressed only under threat of destruction, that systems must be torn down to pave the way for humanity, that blood must be shed for the cause of our existence. The meek shall inherit the Earth, but they shall only rule the ashes of those who failed.
Sorry wrong chat lol

2021.01.26 06:10 Boomg92 Your take in influencers?
I'm not against making money by any means butiu feel like they need to be stopped specifically in the fitness industry. I just saw a video of one said individual doing max exercises and almost seriously hurt himself deadlifting. Its crazy, these people are looked up to to a young generation. Now aways they're calling out professionals and putting themselves in danger for likes. Not to mention somebody having a million subscribers is the new "Google said so". They are selling anything and everything. Saw one were an influencer.took a 21 year old kid to a test.clinic and got him started for being low. No trying natural fixes. No further blood work. Extreamly dangerous to anybody who knows about peds That man could bring a baby into the office and just because hes a big figure they'll leave with test. I think the fitness industry will be ruined 30 years from now.

2021.01.26 06:10 -Kelbel- Am I the one to blame? Story/Advice
This is going to be a bit long but I have no one else to talk to or rant about it. Sorry. But like I want to explain everything, because I’m being told it’s my fault and it’s making me feel like a shit person.
So I have been friends with this girl for nearly 8 years. We started off as work friends, and didn’t see each other outside of work. After a year or so we started hanging out and she became my BFF. So there are some key factors to know.
1) she lives with her boyfriend and their twin girls in his parents basement. 2) her boyfriend is mentally and physically abusive to her. 3) she is a shopaholic. 4) she always vents to me 5) we always do the things she wants to do.
So I have mental health issues, two of those are depression and dissociation, so the past few months I’ve started to distance myself from her. Thanks to COVID I got fired from my job, haven’t been able to get unemployment and at the time I was getting ready to be evicted. So I had a lot going on and I asked her for some space. Which she obliged. Now I’m usually the person everyone comes to with their problems. For as long as I know I have always been that type of person. Now I had a shitty childhood filled with some trauma so I have never been able to open up to people. Everyone that I did open up to (my family and my husband) have used it against me or they did something to betray my trust. She was the first one to not do that to me. That was until early last year. Around March, that’s when our problems started happening.
March 20, 2020 my dad passed away due to cancer. Before that, I was working full time, and even working my way to become a general manager. So between me working regularly, and doing extra, it was becoming hard to balance things out. My dad lived with my sister who has 3 kids and she wanted me to help her out with him. So I had a lot of my plate, I was overwhelmed, I felt like I had the weight of the world on my shoulders and I was on the verge of breaking down. All of these things my best friend knew about.
My best friend got mad at me because I didn’t want to hang out with her. Our hangouts usually consist of either going shopping (I’m not a shopper, I don’t like to spend money, but that’s my best friend ya know) or me going to her boyfriends parents house and hanging out with her in the basement (his parents like me, and I usually help her clean, like ALWAYS) and I usually don’t get home until about 3am. So when she asked me to hang out and I told her “no” she had an absolute fit. Okay not like she went off on me but she guilt tripped me. She needed someone to talk to and she made me feel bad for ignoring her. But I told her no. Since then every time I tell her “no I don’t want to do this” she gets mad at me, she guilt trips me, and she makes me feel like a piece of crap person. So because of that we started getting into some spats.
Fast forward a couple months later, our job was shut down because of COVID and I was drawing unemployment and she was having trouble with it. She got mad at me and told me that I had it made and that I have my problems were nothing compared to hers she was struggling. That is the moment I felt like I could no longer confide to her. Because yeah, my unemployment was paying my bills, and we had the extra $600 a week. But everything went to bills, rent, food, helping her and helping my sister out. It’s not like I was flashing it in her face. I have always struggled and have worked hard for everything so for once things were going my way and she made me feel like a piece of shit because of that. So I quit telling her my problems. And she quit asking if I was okay.
Fast forward a few more months, her and her boyfriend got into an argument, he put his hands on her (smacked her and pulled her by her hair) so she stayed the night at my house (just for clarification this is the first time she stayed the night at my house) . Now every time this happens I have always supported her. I often encourage her to leave him, that I will ghost her and her twins. I have begged her to let me help her out of that situation. But she won’t leave or she isn’t ready. So i have made myself available to her and started spending more time with her at his parents house. (More than I use to, I’m a married woman and I was with her more than my husband). So I’m stuck with the knowledge of knowing what’s going on and trying to not let her boyfriend know that I know because I don’t want to make it worse. Now you might ask “why don’t I call the police” well they both do drugs and she begs me not to. So being with her most of the time and listening to her problems and knowing she is being abused (not at all the time, it’s not an everyday thing) starts to wear a person down.
So the next few months (end of august, early November) I was becoming more depressed, my unemployment ran out, my mom vents to me about her problems, my sister vents to me about her problems, my best friends continues to vent to me about her problems, and bills start piling up. I started distancing myself from everyone. So I finally found a job and I loved it. I worked 4am to 1 pm. Sometimes I even stayed later. When I got home I would stay up for a few hours and then go to bed around 6pm. I was too tired to hangout and I was just mentally exhausted from hearing everyone’s problems, so when my best friend wanted to hang out I told her no I was tired. But I started inviting her to my house. And she started giving me excuses to why she can’t and then she would quit replying to me for a couple days. For a month this happened. I got fired for meal violations (I was taking late lunches because we were busy) and no one showed me how to fix the time clock. So when I got fired naturally I told no one until they asked me.
When my best friend found out she started texting me everyday wanting me to come over. At this point I was a little peeved at her. I told her That I was tired of coming over there, why don’t she come to my house. (I have no kids, my husband is pretty chill and will stay in one room or leave to let me have a girls thing). She got mad at me and proceeded to tell me about how bad of a friend I have been and that I won’t hang out with her anymore. So it was kind of a back and forth thing. I finally snapped and told her that she should be just as comfortable coming to my house as I am going to her boys parents house. That she wasn’t being fair to me and how she knows nothing about what’s been going on with me because I can no longer confide in her, I can’t tell her no without her making me feel bad about it, I have to walk on eggshells now because everything I said or do sets her off. Then me saying that to her she replies that I’m telling her I don’t want to be friends with her. So I quit arguing with her, I stopped messaging her and talking to her for about a week.
That argument was swept under the rug by her, she never brings it up and she acts like it didn’t happen. So a week before Christmas I do hang out with her. And once again she fell into the same routine and wanted me to come over and hang out everyday. On Christmas Eve she wanted me to go over to help her and got mad at me because I couldn’t because I go to my grandmas on Christmas Eve. I probably hung out with her a few more times after Christmas, and she still won’t hang out at my house.
On Christmas Day, my husband and I got into a huge argument, I won’t talk about that but since then I started drinking wine. Like everyday. (I hardly drink) so me drinking everyday is worrisome to family. I have a reason for this. I feel like I’m having a psychotic break or something. Like if I don’t drink every negative thing is just going to overwhelm me, and I don’t have anyone to talk to, (something I’m use to). So drinking helps me numb it down. I have always been the person that uplifts everyone, that makes people feel better, happy, like just me being around someone improves their mood. Only a few people (my sister, my husband, and my best friend) have seen me depressed, sad, and when I dissociate. And each time, they can’t handle it. I start feeling worse because I’m making them uncomfortable. So when I started feeling that happening I told my best friend I needed some space. I have a lot going on. I stopped talking to her, my mom, my sister, like it’s just bad.
So a couple weeks have gone by since then. Last week I was having a good day. I took my grandma to her doctors appointment, went shopping with her, and when my best friend messaged me to hang out, I told her I had some errands to run but I would afterwards (not specific time was set). My best friend and I are on the same phone plan, we take turns paying but the past couple months we have both been broke so no phone service. We talk over messenger, so only works around WiFi. At last minute, my mother got ahold of me at my grandmas house and wanted to me to watch my little brothers (they are both severely autistic and cannot be left alone). So yeah I go to my moms and hang out with my little brothers. My mom has internet but for some reason my phone wouldn’t connect to her WiFi. It was around 6pm when my mom got back, and I had full intention of still hanging out with my beat friend. But my mom has a dog, who sheds and stinks, so I stopped by my house to change when I was bombarded with messages from her.
She accused me of standing her up, and told me I didn’t even had respect to her by not telling her I wasn’t coming. She then told me that she couldn’t be friends with someone who never hangs out with her or talks to her, and that I obviously don’t want to be friends anymore and that I keep hurting her feelings. There is more but I’m trying to sum it up. And I can honestly see that. I know I hurt her feelings by not talking to her or hanging out with her, I know I probably made her feel unwanted. I’m willing to acknowledge my actions and I apologised to her for it. But I wanted to make her understand that she only want to hang out when it’s on her terms, but that’s the same with me right? I told her that maybe I don’t know how to be a great friend anymore, that yeah I’m probably lay the one ruining our friendship. I told her sorry many times, and she never replied to it.
And a few days later her boyfriend messages me (from her account) wanting me to come over and talk to her because she has been depressed. I told him that she was more than welcome to come to my house, because my husband was at work, it was just me and than we could talk and make a girls day of it. She still won’t come over, so I don’t know what to do about that. So a day after that she starts messaging me again, and of course acting like nothing happened. She still doesn’t come over and I don’t go to her place (his parents). And a couple days ago she messages telling me that I refuse to hang out with her. And because I don’t live on my phone she accuses me of “ignoring her messages” and that she has no more expectations for me. And then asks me if she should keep trying to be my friend. But she wants me to say that I don’t want to be friends anymore. She want me to say the words. So I asked her what words she want me to say because she keeps telling me she doesn’t want to be friends with me but I have to be the one to say it? I still haven’t gotten a reply.
So am I the one to blame? Am I wrong for basically standing up for myself and not wanting to do everything she wants to? Am I wrong for not ALWAYS wanting to clean and hang out in a basement? Am I the toxic friend? Is she?
Like I don’t want this kind of friendship anymore, it’s easier for me to dissociate and for me to cut people out of my life without looking back, but I’m also a people pleaser and I empathise way to much, and I have always needed someone but I became the person others needed and I know she needs me, but it’s mentally exhausting, and I’m not happy with the way things are, but I can’t bring myself to be the one to end the friendship.
I’m sorry this is so long, I have been holding this for nearly a year now.

My brother kept in a frame on the wall pictures of every motorcycle, car, truck: in his rusted out Impala convertible wearing his cap and gown waving in his yellow Barracuda with a girl leaning into him waving on his Honda 350 waving on his Honda 750 with the boys holding a beer waving in his first rig wearing a baseball hat backwards waving in his Mercury Montego getting married waving in his black LTD trying to sell real estate waving back to driving trucks a shiny new rig waving on his Harley Sportster with his wife on the back waving his son in a car seat with his own steering wheel my brother leaning over him in an old Ford pickup and they are waving holding a wrench a rag a hose a shammy waving.
My brother helmetless rides off on his Harley waving my brother's feet rarely touch the ground- waving waving face pressed to the wind no camera to save him.

2021.01.26 06:09 Chijinda Energy Reserves power
In my campaign I'm running a character that uses power armor, and wanted to try to give him essentially "reserve power" that he could use to enhance different aspects of his suit (think the Scifi scenes of: "Divert all power to rear deflector shields" when the heroes just need to hold out a little longer or "divert all power to the engines" when they absolutely need to get away from something fast).
What would be the best way to simulate this? I was looking at Variable with some limits and stipulations but wasn't sure if there might be a better way to simulate this effect.
