2023.03.26 01:11 Correct_Bike540 My Ex Won’t leave me alone
So I was with a narcissist for 3 1/2 almost 4 years… (I didn’t know this until after the break up and he showed his true colors). We were 5 months away from the planned date to make it official… but one night I came home on break from work and he was sleep but his phone was open and on the messages between him and the girl.. & the first thing he said to me was, it’s not what you think 😒
the relationship ended November 2018… ((REMEMBER THIS!))
We broke up … I wasn’t forgiving his ass and this definitely wasn’t the first time he cheated on me so many times I lost count…
I remember hearing rumors but I couldn’t never confirm it because he stayed deleting evidence of conversations and entertaining females… what Pissed me off more is he fuck with females I called family & Friends….
So one night I was sleep in my bed and he wanted until I was good and out and he went downstairs and fucked the neighbor whom I thought was my friend 🤦🏾♀️ but the twist is I didn’t find out until after I posted the engagement announcement 😩
The bitch got in her feelings and made a post and started confessing everything. But I forgave him but not too long after that.. that’s when I caught him with the chick from Walmart.
So fast forward we broke up and he decided to sleep with my niece.. YUP you read it correctly… I founded out because her own father called me and told me. And I was just shocked…
Now I’m not gonna play innocent because I did get revenge out of hurt but the only person I hurt at the end of the day was myself.. I ashamed of my actions and I have learned and WILL NEVER DO IT AGAIN!
so fast forward until recently.. so this man has been popping up everywhere, I haven’t spoke to him since 2020 and he keeps filling his current wife head up with things that aren’t true and she is doing what I did which is fall under the dummy spell and do whatever he ask or defend him 😩
So the both of them been stalking my pages on social media and I thought it was funny at first but everyday?! So I do what I do best and out on my inspector gadget cap and go lurking and find out they broke up and she thinks he coming back to me but the gag is I been happily in a relationship since 2021 & Babe already knows what’s been going on … I’ve blocked him on everything but he keeps making new pages …
Long story short.. I want this man to LEAVE ME THE FUCK ALONE! Advice?

2023.03.26 01:03 GrappleMan7348 Parent refuses to get me formally diagnosed
(21M) I am a junior in college studying biomedical science living 5 hours from home. I am still financially dependent (for the most part) on my family.
I have known for sometime that I have ADHD as I exhibit clear textbook signs of it daily, both in social situations and in my own personal alone time. My friends and girlfriend have told me before I even started thinking about getting diagnosed. As I progress through school and living on my own I’m finding it harder and harder to live day to day without feeling mentally…handicapped… School is requiring much more thought and focus and my apartment and chores are suffering as a symptom of it.
My mother is the main organizer of our families appointments, records and all that other boring stuff. So naturally I go to her (as I’m certain my dad will say “son I don’t know your mom knows about all that stuff”) I was home for spring break (the first time since Christmas) and I attempted to get some schoolwork done at the house…I got some done but at a great cost of time and effort. (It took me 50 minutes to watch a 10 min lecture video) She asked why I haven’t done anything and I tell her I can’t focus, I need adderall or something. I said it jokingly but she took it as an absolute joke and laughed at me.
Back in my apartment now 5 hours away and I decide to call her and ask about getting diagnosed. She doesn’t believe in ADHD, she believes all kids are a little crazy and the “government just wants to shove pills down our throat” She asks why I would even consider it and I tell her that I need help and it takes an immense amount of effort to do the most menial tasks. She starts making excuses, essentially playing doctor. “How much sugar do you consume? I know you drink a lot, it’s your damn phone you’re always on it” none of which are true and are huge exaggerations. I wrap up the conversation and hang up.
I need help but my supposedley biggest supporters are nonexistent. What do I do?

2023.03.26 01:00 BlueArchiveMod Daily Questions Megathread March 26, 2023
Please use this thread to ask any questions you have about the game. Please search though the comments section as your question may have been answered already or through the search bar.
REMINDER: Bind your account!
Please remember to bind your accounts and take note of your UID
, member code
, server location
, and any information related to your account (e.g. amount spent, student roster, etc). If anything happens to your account (e.g. losing access, unauthorized access), you will need to provide as much info as you can to Nexon's customer support email. Guest accounts that are unbound will be extremely difficult to recover, perhaps impossible.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)  When does the server reset?
For global, dailies reset at 19:00 UTC and weeklies reset on Sunday.  Should I re-roll this account?
This will depend on your priorities with PvE, PvP, or both, but you can generally see the “ideal” units as Iori, Hibiki, and Tsubaki for most content, while Shun and Haruna are great for PvP.  Who should I spend my elephs on? Who should I mystic unlock?
At the start, prioritize spending your blank elephs on getting Serina to 2-star for the increased healing stat, Tsubaki to 3-star for the extra tankiness when she is reloading. It is generally advised not to spend your elephs on increasing characters to 4-star and 5-star ratings, since there is only a stat increase and the amount of elephs needed is quite high.  What do my support students’ stats do?
Aside from increasing the stats of their own skills, support students will provide additional stat boosts to your striker team. The specific increase(s) can be viewed by clicking on “Support” on the right side of the team formation screen.  What should I buy in the shop?
 What does the “leader” position do?
- Credit Shop - Buy out the bottom row of materials, then the first two tiers of enhancement stones as needed. Feel free to buy the higher tiers of enhancement stones if you feel that you have an excess of credits, which is very common.
- Eligma - This will depend on you, can reference question .
- Total Assault (raid) - Prioritize Maki’s elephs (until you unlock her) and save the rest of your currency for future updates that will add more low-rarity students to the shop, meaning you can unlock mystic for them without spending your eligma. You can also purchase the skill discs/blu-rays depending on your needs.
- Tactical Challenge (PvP) - Buy out the energy drinks as needed (warning: they are instantly consumed, they won’t be moved to your inventory). Many suggest to save these for events in order to buy drinks, refresh the shop, and repeat.
This is purely cosmetic, as it changes which student’s chibi shows up on the map.  What benefits are there to joining a club?
- 10 AP are given daily and deposited automatically on teacher's mailbox, upon checking in.
- A maximum of two assistant can be set for Total Assault and Joint Firing Drill respectively.
- Students assigned to assist with TA cannot also be selected to assist with JFD.
- 20 credits are rewarded every minute by setting assistants.
- The specific unit that is borrowed can be only used once a day.
- There's a fee of 40,000 credits, when borrowing a assistant student.
- The donor receives 50,000 credits instead; even though the fee is 40,000 credits.
- The fee can only be received 20 times a day.
 How does the pity system work?
- It can be unlocked after clearing Mission 3 Act 4
You need to pull, at a minimum, 200 times in order to get 200 recruitment points that are redeemed for the character you want. The recruitment point system does not carry over from banner to banner, it is only shared between banners that are concurrently running.  Why can’t I find my friend’s club?
While the servers’ updates are separated from JP and global, the global servers are separated further into smaller divisions. You need to be on the same server as your friend, which you can check from the home screen: top-right menu button > account > version info. The server must be the same.  When is X banner coming? Should I save for X student?
We never know for sure, due to the fact that global servers are on an accelerated schedule compared to JP. Please refer to this guide
for some more info.  Should I use Pyroxenes to refill my AP?
If you want to prioritize progression, the first three daily refills are decently valuable, this is because the Pyroxene cost of refilling will increase for every three refills. If you are focused on character collection or future banners, you should be saving your Pyroxenes.  Why can’t I buy X student’s eleph in the shop?
You can only buy elephs of students you own.  What should I craft?
At the start, prioritize crafting cafe furniture until your comfort is maxed out, then students’ gifts, then whichever upgrade materials you need. The crafting system is the only way to get furniture and gifts at the moment.  What is the “Anniversary” in account settings?
This is your birthday, used for characters to wish you happy birthday.  When will the beginner guide missions for Nonomi end?
This is a permanent addition, so feel free to take your time with the tasks.  What is the best place to farm EXP?
You can run any map to farm EXP, as the EXP gain is equal to the amount of AP spent (i.e. 10 AP spent = 10 EXP gained). You should be looking at the stages that drop the equipment upgrade materials that you need.  What is the “Secret Tech Sheet” in the Total Assault shop?
This is used to upgrade a student’s (non-EX) skill to level 10.  Is it worth doing a raid if I can’t pass X difficulty level?
It is always more efficient to clear the highest difficulty you can finish instead of failing/forfeiting a higher difficulty.  Can I claim the Limited Students through exchanging Expert Permits? How often does the Expert Permit shop resets?
You cannot get the limited students via this method. You will still need to pull for them. There's no specific mentioned but it's expected to be monthly.
Please have patience with other members of the community and be as polite as possible. Everyone has to start somewhere!

2023.03.26 00:58 robins-friend This just sucks
So my husband has been bringing up divorce for a couple of years. I always begged them to give me another chance and they always did. Unfortunately, the first several times I made an effort for a few months and then slid back into my old ways. In the past year or so, I really saw a change in myself and my husband said they could see a change as well. We've both done a lot to hurt each other, but I know that I did a lot more. Last year, an opportunity came up for us to move to another state for a job they got. A month before the move, we had decided to call it quits. We made it about a day before I approached them and asked if they were really ready to stop trying. They said no and we decided to take this leap together. Fast forward the beginning of this year and on top of literally one problem after the other (not marriage-related), they brought up divorce again. And yet again, I begged for another chance. This time, it took them about a week before deciding. Fast forward again to about a month ago, I got home from work and they were drunk and upset asking for a divorce and saying that they've never been happy in the 10 years we've been together (5 dating, 5 married and no, this wasn't the first time they had said this to me). This was the first time they had ever gotten drunk on purpose and it just put this in a whole new perspective for me. That time, I agreed that we should get a divorce. I started telling my family, close friends, and my supervisor at work. I had even started looking for boxes to start packing. And then, for the first time, they were begging me to give them another chance. I had already decided that if they did that, I would say no, but I just couldn't. We had built a life together and while things were tough, we both agreed that we've had such good times together and that it's so easy to just focus on the bad things. After that, things were really good between us and they even admitted that they were going to change their drinking habits. We were having fun and getting along really well.
But then they started to make some lifestyle changes and while this is so hard for me to admit, it was just something I couldn't support in my marriage. They have changed SO MUCH in the 5 years we've been married and I just had a realization that I couldn't give them everything they needed. Their family is coming to visit next week and I had decided to wait until after that to bring it up. On top of that, our two dogs were majorly sick the past week and we were both exhausted and stressed from dealing with that. I had been looking forward to their family visiting for so long and just wanted to have fun and enjoy their company. Instead, while at work on Friday, they sent me texts asking why I wasn't being supportive about a particular thing they had started doing. I knew at that moment they were going to bring up divorce again. I responded the best way I could and didn't get anything in return. I got home and saw liquor on the counter and a few beer cans on their nightstand. Not to mention, a cup in the floor that looked like it had been thrown. They were drunk again and couldn't be reasoned with. But like I said, I had already had thoughts of divorce myself, so that wasn't a huge issue. I was mostly mad because they had been drinking and they couldn't have just waited until after their family visited. We had a talk later where I let them know that while I know I haven't been a great wife, my love has never waivered and I just wanted them to know that. I also asked if we could just pretend and act normal while their family is here so we can at least try and enjoy that.
Now to the real pain. The town we moved to is tiny and it's been difficult for me to make friends. They have and I'm so happy they have, but now they have people to go see while I'm stuck in the apt alone. My closest friends family are 20+ hours away and in different timezones. While we've been texting, I just wish I had someone physically here. Before this happened on Friday, we had been talking about how stressed we both were and I suggested we go to a comedy show thatw as happening this weekend. They said they had something else planned, which was ok. Tonight, after they had gotten ready, I wished them luck on what they were doing, but then they said that it was cancelled and they were actually going to the comedy show with their friends. That hurt so bad. Of course I know there was no way we could have gone together, but just knowing I had suggested it as a stress reliever and was turned down sucks. I'm just so ready to be out of here and away from this town, but idk how long the divorce process and moving will take. We haven't even filed our freaking taxes yet because we were waiting on one of their documents.
I know this is super wordy, I'm a wordy person, but I just needed to get this out of me.

2023.03.26 00:57 -TheLostTimeLord- For Tomorrow We Die: Burning in the Dark, Part Eight
The Burning Ones first previous
The white faded to black and the black faded to something else. The darkness was pushed away, and something, shapeless, formless, but brilliant, was at my side. I tried to grasp what I was seeing; still I could not. The shapeless light swirled and pulsed like a heartbeat, and beyond I saw a swarm of tiny sparks, each one, glowing, more brilliantly than a supernova, yet none outshone the other.
Slowly, the light beside me congealed into a solid form. It was Shadow. He stood beside me, and to his left I could see another light. It pulsed and flickered, all the colors in the rainbow sparkled through until the lights turned into an arc of red embers, tiny streaks of flaming, ginger curls.
The streaks of light swirled and popped, and from them, the form of my friend Alison appeared. She smiled gently. Only her face and her hand were visible as she waved, two fingers outstretched, comically mimicking her favorite Jedi’s motions, and then the rest of her body appeared beside Shadow’s.
Shadow copied her motion. His muscled arm lifted into the air, two fingers outstretched as he ordered the multitude of lights surrounding us into place. I watched, awestruck, as each spark exploded and became a full, unique, beautiful, human facsimile.
“What is this place?” I asked, as Shadow looked down at his hand in wonder. “Do you know these humans?”
“I do,” There was a joy in Shadow's voice I had never heard before. He walked forwards eagerly, dashing from one face, to the next, inspecting each one with excitement and vigor. “I never… I never thought…”
Each human form in the void smiled as Shadow approached. I saw them beaming with happiness. In the instant, as their eyes locked on Shadow, I felt something, something indescribable. It was gratitude and happiness.
“You never thought you would see them again
,” I said, and I walked to Shadow’s side. Here, in this spectral realm, he looked more human than ever. I realized, as I observed my companion and the humans he had once shepherded, that in every detail of Shadow’s visage, there was a piece of them. There was now a tiny freckle beside his nose, just like the one Alison had.
Shadow reached out and attempted to touch the strange looking human in front of him. His brow was heavy, his nose large, and his skin rough and weathered. His eyes clearly held the intelligence of human kind, but he did not look quite like the humans I knew.
“I was never remarkable,” Shadow admitted, his hand shimmered as he touched the human before him, “but I believe this is the Dimension of Windows.”
“The Dimension of Windows?” I asked. Beneath Shadow’s touch, the ancient man dissolved into a grey mist which swirled and drifted towards us.
“It is the only word I know,” Shadow stepped forward, into the mists and all the other lights faded, “but I am beginning… to remember.”
I felt the plane where we had stood fading away, and I was pulled back into union with Shadow. The mists swallowed us, and the phantom world we stood in dissolved and made way for a new scene.
I did not understand them.
Still, I did my duty. I watched. I protected.
The humans huddled around their small fire, whispering to each other as the night crept in. My brethren and I stood, wings outstretched, doing what little we could to reflect the heat of the fire back on those we had chosen to protect. My human, the maker of spears, told his tale. He had seen it creeping through the camp late at night. It would not come near, for I stood watch and this cloud was small, but it would not leave. The Dark was determined and ever sought to snuff out life. It was not long before other humans noticed the Dark. Some saw it directly, others saw only its effects.
The Dark had killed the animals who strayed from the herd. It had smothered the life-giving vegetations being crudely cultivated. The beloved canines of the tribe left to walk the edges of the camp at night, and many did not return. Before the fall, we found that most sentient life in the universe was incapable of seeing the Darkness, but the humans had seen the impossible, and despite their fear, despite their superstitions, despite their ignorance, they were planning.
I thought them foolish at first. They adorned their bodies with colorful pigments of the earth; they placed flowers in their hair. They fashioned jewelry from vibrant stones and animal bones. Endearing, but simple. The spoke loudly, telling their hunting stories to the fires and the children. The wind carried their songs to the ends of the earth. Together, the Dark and The Burning Ones watched as mankind lived
. They lived on despite the danger. They rejoiced despite their fear, and the Dark, that which abhors life, took notice and it was slowed.
At night, as the humans danced around their fires and the stars shone down on them, I began to join them. As the cold winds blew and the trees swayed in the winds, I swayed with them. I believe, the ancient humans did something we never could. They stood before the Dark without fear. The Dark was not the first to attempt to take their lives. It would not be the last. Of course they feared death and danger. They were mortal. Despite this, they did not stand afraid to live.
As we danced with the humans. As we listened to their songs. As we held their hands, our bodies began to change. Over the years, across the generations of humans, the forms of my brethren and I changed to match those we were tied to.
I watched as the Maker of Spears chipped his last rock, climbed his last hill, and said goodbye to his kin for the last time. I watched his life-spark fade, and then I was taken back into the void.
Shadow and I returned to the Dimension of Windows. As soon as the plane materialized around us, Shadow rushed out into the crowd of faces. I could tell he was looking for someone. As he ran, I saw that there were many faces he did not wish to pass up and his eyes lingered upon them longingly.
“Where is she!” Shadow cried out and redoubled his pace.
“Who?” I asked, and ran along behind him. With each human face I saw, I caught snatches of memory from Shadow’s life. I realized, the light around us was fading, we were heading back. “Who are we looking for?”
“I don’t know where she…” Shadow stumbled and fell to his knees, the light around us faded to grey, the physical solids to mists, “I can’t remember… my fair…”
The real world assaulted my senses like a hundred decibels and a ton of bricks. The ship was spiraling. The lights were flashing. V’ee was howling gleefully in the cockpit. Taika was holding me steady with one arm, and bracing us against the ship’s walls with his other limbs.
“Luna Vanguard, STAND DOWN! STAND DOWN!” Marc was shouting. “There are humans on-board! CEASE FIRE! REPEAT, this is Commander Marc Tarrow of the Rapid Assault and Recovery Force One-Seven escorting an asset to UN Command. Do not fire. REPEAT! DO NOT FIRE!”

Hello friends, hopefully you are all still here with me in the Lovely Horror Show. I recently had to step away from my keyboard in order to deal with a family emergency when my uncle fell very ill. My brief trip to assist my aunt turned into two complicated months renovating her home to be handicap accessible and taking care of people. Rest assured, I have not abandoned these stories, and should be returning to publishing more frequently now that I have returned home. I thought of you all often, and I have missed seeing both the familiar and the new names in the comments after I post.

2023.03.26 00:56 StepwiseUndrape574 GTA 6 Launch Windows Possibly Outed By Take-Two SEC Filing, Here's What We Know
Video game publisher Take-Two has one of the biggest video game franchises on the market thanks to Grand Theft Auto. The latest game in the franchise is GTA V, which is still incredibly popular despite having launched way back in 2013. Recently, Take-Two filed a 10-K with the SEC that shows what the company plans to spend on marketing over the next five years. That form showed that in fiscal 2024, more money would be spent on marketing than any other fiscal year over the next five years.
The marketing spend for fiscal 2024 ending March 31, 2024, is $89 million, more than twice the amount for other years listed on the form. Analyst Jeff Cohen from investment firm Stephens believes that massive marketing budget will coincide with the launch GTA VI. In other words, the filing suggests the highly anticipated video game may be several more years out than many fans expected.
gta v planes Being a publicly-traded company, Take-Two is required to file a 10-K with financial details each year that outlines its marketing spending for the next five years. The last 10-K form filed in May 2019 showed a spike in marketing costs in fiscal 2023, but that spike has now been shifted to fiscal 2024. Many companies have delayed major projects by a year due to the coronavirus pandemic that forced workers to operate from home and shut down production across the world.
Cohen pointed out that marketing spending has been an accurate predictor of the launch of major games from Take-Two in the past. For example, a marketing spending increase was noted on the 10-K form during the launch year for Red Dead Redemption 2, well before that game was announced. GTA VI is expected to launch sometime between April 2023 and March 2024 according to the filing, assuming there are no further delays.
Past rumors suggested a 2021 launch date, so a launch no sooner than April 2023 is a long time away for gamers. With GTA V and GTA Online still incredibly popular, Rockstar wouldn't be in a rush to launch the new game. And a delayed launch would also ensure that the game is optimized for next-generation Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 consoles.

2023.03.26 00:55 911loverer2 Recently purchased a faulty ford escort [England]
Based in England, UK.
On the 14th December 2022, I put down a £200 deposit on a £1,995 1993 MK5b ford escort 1.6i 16v LX with the seller, an LTD (limited) trader (not private), 17 days later, on the 31st December 2022, i paid the full price for the vehicle £1,795. I barely used the car in the 3 months and 25 days i have owned it, and i do not use it for work commute.
The advert on Autotrader for the car does not state anything wrong with the car, it only states: "Lovely and increasingly rare Escort MK5b 1.6i 16v LX 5dr... Outstanding history file with comprehensive documentation back to original order form."
the car had 101,720 miles on it, i put 166 miles on it after purchase on the 31st December, 101,886 miles.
When i went to look at the car which is the same day i put a deposit down, i did not inspect the car (my mistake), the paintwork of the car was exceptional, but i did not notice anything obvious just glancing at the car. I asked the seller if it starts up, he tried to start it, nothing, then he got an old used diesel battery, put it in the car, didn't start, so he got 4 more diesel batteries, hooked them up via jump leads to the just replaced diesel battery in the car, tried to start it, it started BUT i noticed smoke coming out of the battery terminals and told him "why is there smoke coming out of the battery terminals" to which he brushed off and said "It'll be fine".
After putting the deposit down after him attempting to start the car, he said he'd get an MOT and service done on it within a few days before i purchase the car in full (1.7k). When i picked up and paid the 1.7k for the car on 31st December, he handed us the service history, both keys and the relevant 90s ford service/radio guide books. I go to drive the car, not even a 30 second walk from his garage place of business, the car stalls. I walk back to him as car will not start, he comes out and jumps the car and offers to drive me back home in the purchased car with his son following behind us with his son in the sons own car, i agree. As we drive back i ask why he's revving the car on each gear change, he said "I'm keeping the revs above 1500rpm to make the alternator charge the battery". I arrive home in the car just fine, he parks it on my driveway and gets in his sons car and drives off.
I leave the car for a week or 2, then i take my father out on a short 15 miles or so drive, car starts fine, SEEMS to work OK except the smell of a burning clutch despite being easy on the clutch with no over-revving one time in the short drive, i also notice the vibrations and poor acceleration, brakes being terrible, sloppy gearbox, rolling back with the handbrake on. Once i take it back home, over the course of the next month and a half i randomly once every 2 weeks go out and start the car, turn it off and on, within that month and a half, 3 times i go around the block in the car (no more than 1 mile each time). After the month and a half, i get concerned at the noticed problems which are horrendous, but no different from when i took my father out. I believe at the time, this is just how a 90s car, especially a ford escort drives as i had never driven one or been in one.
I go to a friends house, roughly 20 miles, again, i notice the same problems wrong with it as before when i went out in it with my father, except this time, the suspension also being very dreamy/light.
I go out one morning to start the car, it does not start. I pop the engine bay and notice oil is low, i look under the car, it's got a leak out of the oil sump.... i also suspect at this point one of the 4 cylinders is dead, i also noticed cracked/illegally worn tyres on all sides, corroded/rusted front brake discs, rusted battery bay, pedals footwell rusted (but with a new bolt/washer in the brake pedal), a blown number 9 radiator fan fuse, possibly stretched or worn throttle/clutch/handbrake/footbrake cables, parting seat backing on passengedriver seats, the actual seat where you sit on both passenger & drivers seat cover completely ripped and now putting orange dust everywhere, a broken built in clock, the carpet covering for the rear brake lights in the boot of the car, rusted brake lines, rusted wishbone joints, brake calipers. And lastly, i double check the cars tax, because i paid tax, and the tax expires December 1st, 2023 when that is not when i taxed it in December on the 31st 2022, i check paid car plate checking site "Un-named-car-checking-site-dot-com" and it lists 6 owners, him being the 6th owner, except for, traders are NOT listed as owners anywhere officially. This 6th owner, which is him purchased the vehicle on 14/05/22, and has held ownership for the car as of today, 9 months and 27 days, whereas i should technically be the 6th owner as he is a trader, and there is no 7th owner regardless which would ALSO be me if the trader bought the vehicle under his personal name and not the company name, but the purchase forms state that his company owns and is selling the vehicle.
At this stage, frustrated, i book an appointment for a pre-mot, visual check, and roadworthy/safety check at TC harrisons, ford, on the 21st march 2023 with the intention of getting the paperwork of things wrong with the car from ford, going back to the trader, giving him copies
of the official papers from ford and under the consumer act 2015, telling him to repair the car. As if i say X thing is wrong with the car, i understand it is his duty within 6 months of purchase to prove the car when sold and currently had/has no faults, and if found, to repair them. And if i have that paper from ford, he can't just say the car is fine if i say the car is bad because then it's word vs word and he's the trader. I also am currently compiling screenshots of the misleading advert he put up to confront him with.
After booking the appointment, i take out the old battery, charge it up for 2 days, put it back in the car, no bueno, doesn't start. I get a relatives car next to mine, jump my car off of theirs and the car starts but dies if i do not keep the car above 1500rpm, at 2000rpm. The car is now only just
running. So i take the opportunity to check out that dead cylinder and the oil. I fill up the oil, car when running is leaking oil faster than if turned off out of the oil sump plug and potentially an oil sump bolt. I also use an old trick to diagnose which cylinder is dead, engine running, i pull off the HT leads/spark plug wire off of cylinder 1's spark plug, i notice the electricity arcing to the spark and can hear the clicking sound, also i notice the engine runs rough when pulling the lead off of the spark plug. I can't access 2 and 3 as they're blocked by an air hose, so i go to cylinder 4, pull the leads off of spark, then engine does NOT change idle BUT i see electricity arcing to the spark and hear the click, BINGO, the vibrations, poor acceleration is due to a dead 4th cylinder. Then the car 10 minutes after being turned on (still running) immediately seizes with a check oil light on the dash, i check oil and oil level is still the same as how much i put in, in between max and min, barely any leak on the floor. I turn the car off and leave it for a day as the appointment was tomorrow, the 21st. (This was NOT related to the spark plug)
I book the TCH appointment in for the 21st, on the 21st, i install a NEW battery and fill up the oil. After putting in the new battery and oil, the car fires straight up and i notice it's actually not vibrating nearly as much, running smoother, and the engine is not moving as much, BINGO, the dead 4th cylinder was due to the bad used battery the trader put in the car (not spark although spark was terrible) and is also the one he must of fried when smoke was coming from terminals (which i think might've also blown the number 9 radiator fan fuse). I take out the 4th spark plug, and notice it's the incorrect plug for the car, it's for a ford fiesta, looks old, yellowed, carbon/oil fouled, beige/white (heat damage) on the spark and that the gap on the plug is too much for what the escort's spark plugs require. the previous day, the car seizing with a check oil light on is irrelevant because when it did, the 4th cylinder wasn't actually firing yet so the damage on spark is not due to the previous day. (unsure of what the current other cylinders' spark plugs are in the car). Meanwhile, while all of this is going on, i go out and buy new sparks, oil, coolant, tools to work on the car which cost a fortune.
Anyways, on the 21st i installed the new battery and oil, oil leak was bad but not a constant stream of oil that'd be dangerous to other road users, i get in the car, there's no oil light anymore, reverse it out my driveway, everything is working fine, until, 20 seconds down the road it feels like the clutch is slipping while stopped at a T junction (it wasn't the clutch), the car drops rpms a bit but brings itself back up quickly, i notice nothing further, 10 seconds from the T junction as i am about to enter a dangerously fast main road, the car cuts out/stalls and the engine immediately seizes and i mean no classic engine drop in rpm when turned off and the vibrational feel, i mean like IMMEDIATELY SEIZED AND STOPPED
. At this point I'm already 2 hours late for the TCH appointment, i also notice for half a second thick white smoke out the exhaust, a check oil light on the dash. I do not turn the car back on, i check oil while being an obstruction at the 2nd T junction to enter the dangerously fast main road, it has enough oil, i check coolant, the car ate the coolant, which was at the max mark no more than 3 minutes earlier when i left my driveway. I push the car all the way back to my house, wait an hour for the car to be cold, start it one more time for 8 seconds to which it instantly starts, has slightly above the min mark of coolant in, the engine bay then starts smoking, the engine bay is also extremely hot in only 8 seconds of a cold start, i turn the vehicle off immediately. I suspect the head gasket out of nowhere decided to blow up, due to heat, coolant eating, exhaust smoke, engine bay smoke. BUT in driving the car all the other times, i did not notice any head gasket-like symptoms, yet for the car to suddenly blow a (suspected) head gasket like that and THAT severely and quickly, it had to be extremely bad from purchase, considering all the other problems with the car from purchase.
The day after, 22nd, i get the car recovered to ford, book a new appointment for early next week from now (25/03/23) and I'm hoping they'll in the invoice actually give me the technical breakdown of things wrong with the car, although apparently, they may NOT test the head gasket, only say "engine overheating" due to the checks they're performing potentially not including the head gasket. I also noticed the night prior, the night of the 21st, the trader guy (owner of the company with his wife) STILL did not transfer ownership of the car as it was still under his personal name and/or the company name, a whole 3 months and 21 days later. He gave me a new keepers slip, but did not tell me to do anything with it, he said he sent off the v5c to dvla when i purchased the car (31/12/22) which is also when i paid £295 tax on the car which never got added because i never owned the car (for some reason). I have an insurance policy on the car, and despite being allowed to be insured on a vehicle with another registered owner, i told my insurance i was the owner as i believed i was, making my insurance invalid but i only found that out AFTER recovering the car to TCH on the 22nd, day after the appointment (close call). I'm sure that would of meant i was driving with no insurance and the car would of been seized and sent back to the company, that's a massive fine and points.
After the car was recovered to TCH which was costly!!!, i went to the traders garage/business, recorded the conversation via phone voice recorder so i had records and he couldn't claim intimidation, told him i had not received the logbook/v5c 3 months and 22 days later after he said he sent them when i purchased the car. He said that DVLA must of lost it, or it got lost in the post but then also said he will send them again. I'm no genius, but HOW CAN HE SEND THEM AGAIN IF HE ALREADY SENT THEM AND THEY GOT LOST?!??!??? He also said he owns the car in trade and that they don't get a logbook, and that he said that "they" (dvla) "take 8-10 weeks to send a logbook", it's been 3 months and 25 days. He said he'd call me tomorrow (23/03/23) in the evening but did not specify when, when asked. He did call, but i missed his call. I also noticed the tyres on the car are 175 when they're supposed to be 185s and the "extensive" service history was actually missing quite a lot, including the tyre change, recent repairs/replacements, and a few owners. END
As i understand it, if i take copies of the official ford documents about things noticed on my car when i receive them next week to the trader, a screenshot of the misleading description of the car, my own written statement of what i noticed, and the consumer rights act 2015, saying to him: "Under the Consumer Rights Act 2015, this car should be of a satisfactory quality, fit for purpose and as described. My rights have been breached because the car you sold me is faulty/doesn’t match the description. I would like you to put this right by repairing the car at your cost." while voice recording the whole thing to have records and dismiss any potential "intimidation" arguments, i should be good? I only want to take the docs to him once i have full ownership of the vehicle though, which will mean keeping him in the dark, just so he transfers ownership to me, then hitting him with the paperwork. I want to keep the car, but get all of my money back. From citizens advice
i understand that since i am within 6 months of purchase, i can go to him with the paperwork, request a repair, since the car must of been faulty when purchased, but he would need to prove it which he can't just say the car was fine when sold since the ford document stating things are wrong with the car says otherwise, my statement, meaning he would need to actually fix the problems (which are going to be insanely hard as it's a head gasket + others). Once the repair (if he accepted) is done, as long as he doesn't take too long (i will get in writing from him when he will complete the repair and if longer than said date, get a partial refund and a repaired car), if the repair hasn't solved the problem(s) or another has developed, i may only get part of my money back, depending on how much i've used the car. But i could also ask for a discount if i still want the car. I am unsure of how much money he can deduce by giving me back part of my money divided by the amount of miles I've done or any other factor if there's any guidelines on how little he can pay me since i have used the car. And that i can use an out of court ‘alternative dispute resolution' agency like the motor ombudsman, but i can't if he/his company does not follow the ombudsman's codes which he does not. So it's looking like I'm going to have to go to court (small claims?) if he refuses to pay out after the repair or if the amount he pays out is minuscule in comparison to the price of the car, or if he denies a repair, denies a repair on grounds that everything is currently fine and was fine when sold despite the ford doc and me being within 6 months or any other clause he can use to get out of losing anything. The MOT however, is done by a guy that the trader knows well and is right next to his garage. The DVSA agree that on a 3-5 year old car a test can be completed in 30 minutes and upwards
, above 5 years, 45 minutes is acceptable, and older cars as long as it takes, and the MOT failed on 2 things at 11:23am and then passed at 11:47am, 24 minutes, which violates the DVSA minimum time of 30 minutes while considering the trader knows the MOT guy extremely well, paid him to pass it (but can't prove it), and the fact that with what ford come back with in the pre-mot alone, not even with the other checks, WILL fail the pre-mot, and with what I've found, means that, that car should of NOT been passed or been on the roads. I know the trader will attempt to slither his way out of it by way of not paying or repairing or doing anything he can considering he knowing sold a misleading dodgy car, caused immense distress, financial loss and that if i was on a dual carriageway which i needed to go on to reach TCH, if that engine seized, the wheels would of locked up, i would've spun out caused an accident or death to another person or myself, flipping onto the roof of my car. This means, that i think i will end up taking him to court. Which although i feel like my case is clearly the winning side, i feel like i could end up with less or nothing from court, or the court would reach a fair judgement where he actually pays less, or i'm required to give the car back for all of my money, half my money back or a 2nd repair from him. I will have to probably solicitelawyer up (?) which would be the easiest pay days of their lives. I aim to keep the lovely car, but get as much money back as possible. I am not sure on the massive grey areas of the consumer rights act 2015, my specific case or where i stand, but i believe i am massively in the right of winning everything outright in court, or potentially losing, or only gaining half of everything. Also, his company's first accounts made up to 31st march 2021 were due by 2nd december 2021 which he has not filed, he was going to be struck off the register but the Compulsory strike-off action has been discontinued if that means anything. Can i have some guidance on what to do please? i am in a shitty situation with no knowing of law. Thank you for taking the time to read this abhorrently long post.

2023.03.26 00:51 turkeysyriaearth 26 Million People Affected By Earthquakes in Turkey and Syria
| || | submitted by turkeysyriaearth to u/turkeysyriaearth [link] [comments]
Powerful earthquakes and aftershocks struck southern Turkey and northern Syria on the 6th and 20th of February, 2023. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that 26 million people need humanitarian assistance. The death toll is climbing above 50,000 and is expected to rise as many victims remain missing.Furthermore, the WHO calls the Turkey-Syria earthquakes the “worst natural disaster” in the region in 100 years.
Turkey-Syria Earthquake: What Happened?
On February 6th 2023, the first earthquake hit southeastern Turkey and the northern Syrian border, measuring a magnitude of 7.7. Within minutes entire cities turned into rubble. Following this, a second earthquake measuring a magnitude of 7.6 hit the same region a little later.Two weeks later, on February 20th, another earthquake of 6.4 magnitudes struck the same border area previously hit. Moreover, there have been more than 9,000 aftershocks recorded since.caption: This aerial photograph was taken on February 20th, 2023, showing diggers removing the rubble of collapsed buildings in Antakya.

The Aftermath of the Turkey-Syria Earthquakes
These earthquakes caused immeasurable devastation for an estimated 26 million people damaging and destroying homes and infrastructure, including approximately 214,000 buildings across both countries.An estimated 240,000 rescue workers continued working in quake-hit provinces in Turkey. They persevered for weeks to find survivors trapped under rubble despite no survivors found for long periods of time. An estimated 1.9 million people are in temporary shelters, hotels, and public facilities.As of February 25th 2023, in Turkey alone, 44,218 people died due to the earthquakes, while the announced death toll in Syria was 5,914 people.Caption: Image obtained by the BBC, by Ekrem Imamoglu. The picture shows a 10-day-old baby being taken to an ambulance after being saved from a collapsed building where trapped for four days under the rubble following the Turkey-Syria earthquake.The international response to the Turkey-Syria earthquake
has disproportionately overlooked the Syrian people’s suffering. Syria has faced 12 years of civil war, and with international borders blocked, many Syrians received no help in the first few days after the earthquakes.It took over a week after the earthquakes for Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to issue a three-month authorization for United Nations (UN) aid deliveries to pass through two more border crossings. These significant aid delays resulted from the regime’s influence over affected regions.These unacceptable delays entirely defy the principles of humanitarian law. As a result, Syrians have limited access to search-and-rescue reinforcements and lifesaving aid, unnecessarily costing many precious lives. The UN has failed the people of northwest Syria, highlighting inadequacies within the current system.
The slow humanitarian response to the earthquakes severely affecting northwest Syria illustrates the inadequacy of the UN Security Council-mandated cross-border aid mechanism in Syria. Thus, this crisis highlights the urgent need for alternatives to be put in place.
The UN Pledges a $1 Billion Appeal For Turkey-Syria Earthquakes
The UN launched a $1 billion fundraising appeal to support the humanitarian needs of those affected. This appeal fund will support Turkey’s “once in a generation disaster” for three months and a $397 million appeal to help 4.9 million people in Syria.So far, the UN Central Emergency Response Fund has donated $11.7 million. The UN held that so far, Denmark is the only country recorded to donate aid worth $1.5 million.
Human Rights Concerns Following Turkey-Syria Earthquakes
Health infrastructure was destroyed in many places, increasing the risk of waterborne diseases like cholera, diarrhoea and typhoid. In Gaziantep, a major city in south-central Turkey, hundreds of people are sleeping in tents in different parts of town, and trash has begun to pile up in public parks where some of these tents are located.Therefore, hygiene problems, as well as inadequate housing, are some of the biggest problems in the region. In addition, the inadequacy of public toilets and the lack of infrastructure to use these toilets increases the risk of epidemics in the region.Caption: A Syrian woman sits in Aleppo, Syria, on a pile of rubble that was once her house.

Children’s Rights in the Aftermath of the Earthquakes
According to UNICEF, the recent earthquakes have affected an estimated 5 million children. Natural disasters such as earthquakes have severe consequences for vulnerable groups in society, such as children.As the recovery efforts in Syria and Turkey continue, children’s rights must be a priority. All children must have access to fundamental rights such as food, clean water, and housing. Furthermore, children’s access to education and protection from exploitation and abuse is imperative. Many children in the region are unidentifiable as they are too young to know their full names, while hundreds of children’s parents remain missing.Implementing the general principles of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is of fundamental importance, especially in times of crisis.An estimated 1.7 million Syrian refugees lived in the ten southern Turkish provinces devastated by the earthquakes. Unfortunately, these refugees rely on temporary or international protection status. Without prior authorization, these refugees cannot travel to other provinces.However, following the earthquakes, Turkish authorities issued a directive allowing refugees in these ten provinces to travel to other regions, except Istanbul, for up to 90 days if they could secure their accommodation.However, in the first few days following the disaster, many fled to Istanbul, resulting in the Directorate General of Migration Management revising its decision to a case-by-case basis due to Turkey’s economic difficulties. There has been a growing anti-Syrian sentiment in Turkey which has become the host of the world’s largest refugee population.
Following this, a second directive provided refugees with a 60-day exemption to travel to other provinces without prior authorization. The question remains as to where these Syrian refugees will return to following the expiration of the directive.
A Committed and Sustained Global Humanitarian Response is Needed
The aftermath of these devastating earthquakes requires a committed and sustained international humanitarian response. Thousands are missing, and 1.5 million are homeless without shelter, food, clean water, and access to healthcare.

I bought some Biltwell Frisco 1” bars to replace the stock bars on my bike, I’m new to bikes most I’ve done was changed the grips but with that in mind is this something that can be easily done at home or something I should take to a shop? If shop, how much does that usually cost? Also, some people are saying all stock cables will work with the bars. Thanks.

2023.03.26 00:43 overcrispy First bike for a big guy?
Hello riders, first off I appreciate your time.
I’m 6’4” ~260, wider frame (not linebacker but wider than your average guy). Looking for a first bike I can be comfortable and is fun in corners. Pretty settled on a sport bike but I have always had a soft spot for cruisers, just not sure how well they handle on curvy roads and that’s what I enjoy driving on. Current fun car is a miata for that reason (yes i fit, just barely, ok not really but I can cram in there).
I’m leaning towards an r3 since it’s a good price with abs included, a reliable brand, and I like the look to top it off (plus the torque should help with me being bigger), but the opinion on taller people fitting on it is about 50/50. I’m willing to go up in power but would prefer to keep the cost close to $6k or under, or at least close. If there is an absolute gem of a bike for 8 I would consider it. Looking to buy new, I’m done adopting the consequences of abuse done by others.
Reliability is an important factor. I’m very good mechanically and have an extensive tool set, but I am barely home anymore so no time to fix stuff. This is the reason the fun car has to go ):
Edit: and by sportbike I mean sport, street, etc… (crotch rockets)

2023.03.26 00:41 Probsgettingcheated Police searched my house after an unrelated event, returned the next day unannounced and tried to get social services involved, are they allowed to do this?
Last night I had to call police due to some people showing up to "buy" my car who then quickly started becoming anti-social and aggressive towards me and refused to leave. while I was talking to one police officer a second one approached my 15 year old brother, the only other person in our house at the time, and asked if he could get a quick look at the layout of it. Soon after the police left after getting an explanation as to why I am selling the car. Im 19 and pregnant, my car is too old and too small to transport a child in so i'm selling it to buy a family car which would hopefully also be cheaper on insurance. They also asked when my mum would be home, which I found odd.
The police returned the next day, One was the officer who searched the house, the other a woman I'd not seen before. They asked to speak to me privately away from my Mum and brother. They said after the look around my house and what I told them the night before about why I'm selling my car they were concerned I would not be able to look after a child due to my current financial situation and the state and mess of my house and how I was clearly struggling. I will admit my house is a bit of a tip at the minute, our landlord has decided to sell up and give us compensation as the damp in our house is too costly to repair. Its quite clear to anyone we're packing up and preparing to move and will do as soon as we get a suitable house to move to. Despite me and my mum explaining this to the police they still thought I am going to be there when I give birth (I'm not) and I am struggling to keep everything tidy and together and still would not let up on convincing me to refer myself to adult social services as they cant make the claim for me until I give birth.
another thing they mentioned was that I shouldnt have to sell my car to afford things for my baby, that is not the case and I did not say that to either officer the night before.
Once my Mum got Involved they confirmed they had looked into our past with social services and an unrelated court dispute between my separated parents. They knew my dads address, name etc. Although they must of failed to realise I had to be put in therapy due to the Trauma caused by a social services involvement when I was 13, and that it was recommended I not get spoken to directly about getting them involved.
were the police allowed to do this? thankfully as I am an adult i refused to let them get social services involved. both my Mum and brother also repeatedly told them we were not struggling financially or mentally etc.

I’d classify this in near-mint condition but a tiny amount of “rack rash” on sides of unit precludes me from grading this as mint. I have the original power supply, manual, shipping box, etc. I have a custom quilted black cotton dust cover from DigitalDeckCovers that I’ll include as well.
Price: Asking $2550, shipped insured in the US. Payment via PayPal G&S. If you're available for local pickup I can adjust price accordingly.
I haven't traded or sold on Reddit before but I can point to a past history of good transactions on other gear forums.

2023.03.26 00:32 EmeraldProphet69 AirBnB Cancelled my booking 5-days before check-in
I'm wondering if anybody else has been in this situation. AirBnB (not the host) cancelled my booking 5-days before check-in. I made the reservation on january 10 for March 28 - April 1. Other bookings in the same area are 2-3x the cost. AirBnB is firm in their decision. When I inquired about why the booking was cancelled, I recieved the following response:
"Thank you for contacting us.
We've put procedures in place that restrict short-term reservations for entire homes around certain holidays to try and stop large gatherings. The system focuses on blocking certain one-night reservation attempts and redirecting certain two-night reservation attempts for booking guests who do not have a history of positive reviews.
We've taken this action to help protect our Hosts and the communities they live in, and we're not able to make exemptions. You can still book a private room or boutique hotel room around the holiday.
You can learn more about our Party and Events Policy at:
The booking was 4-nights, not a 1-2 night reservation and there are no holidays during this time. Also, I've rented dozens of Airbnbs and never recieved a negative review. I also booked this several months ago. If AirBnB had a legit concern, I would expect them to inform me far before 5-days before check-in. Although AirBnB claims they canceled the booking, I find it odd because the host has since reposted the listing as a 28-day minimum.

2023.03.26 00:24 AyanaDoThis Property: To Sell/Rent (Advice Wanted)
Seeking advice regarding property investments.
We have a home with a 2.7% interest rate making 900/month after fees when rented.
Home value is 530k. Selling we would make nearly 200k profit.
Issue is my husband wants to branch off into either home flipping, Airbnb, or some sort of profit investing but we are 40k in debt and even more including interest and he didn’t want to sell beds of the interest rate when we preached.
Home was built in 2008. Has a salt water lap pool.. stone flooring, and I’m here seeking some advice with regard to recommendations. What direction should we should go with this home: He wants to keep the home, says it will always rent, and with our current interest rate, the location of it (4BR, 4 minutes from a high school) it will always rent and gain capital. However I’m thinking that he should see the bigger picture. We are currently throwing money away with our debt and bills, if we really want to begin Airbnb/prooerty investing we would need to take on cash offers for fixer uppers, or land and tiny homes near destinations.
What are your thoughts? What do you think from someone in the Airbnb industry?
If we go the route we are going, we can probably be comfortable but it will take 7 years+. If we sell our home, we can get completely out of debt and invest now.

2023.03.26 00:24 jamfan03 I hate the gym. Here's why.
**This is my opinion and I'm planning on working out at home and if you have any at-home work out tips/videos you want to share please do. I'll likely buy a few dumbbells and get outside for exercise. Do you think someone can be successful without a gym membership gaining strength/losing weight? Let me know. **
- Reasons I hate the gym -
Requires monthly payment/commitment
Takes way too much time driving to the gym, parking, changing, locking up belongings, showering and doing all these things in reverse when you leave.
Having to buy gym clothes, gym bag, lock for locker
Public showers/locker rooms are just kinda gross
Phone, wireless earbuds (another cost) -- I want to listen to music but I'm constantly looking for a place to set it where it won't get stepped on, also it's a big distraction.
For beginners like me who have made several attempts to get into a workout routine, large gyms with 100s of machines is like dropping into a maze and having no idea of where to go.
(Where do I start? So many machines...Do I start with cardio? How long? Do I do arm or leg workouts? How many times a week? Should I join a class? I can't commit to a weekly thing, my schedule is hectic as it is. Everyone here is in great shape already!? wtf?)
I've made a few attempts to start a regular gym routine but to be honest I really hate it. Like everyone I want to be healthier, lose weight, gain strength etc. But the gym just sucks. Looking for alternatives. Thanks.
